MINES AND MINING
Coal Market Brightens  with
Approach of Fall and
Cooler Days.
B.C. Copper Co. Fashing on Develop-
. ment in Voigt Camp—Copper
At 17.50.
P. Y. Smith was in town last week and
reports bright mining prospects in the
Tulameen district.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is feeling the approach of autumn weather in
the consequent increased demand for
coal. Superintendent Holden states that
the coal is showing remarkably welTin
the mine and the facilities for preparing
it for shipping are the' best. A big demand for Princeton coal is expected as
its merits are proven by actual use.
Charlie Henning was in town last week
coming from Bear creek, where he has
very promising mineral properties. He
has built eight mifes pf trail lo the Inde
pendence group of*_ftlneral claims.
C. F. Law was recently at Slate creek,
where he has gold-platinum placers, and
for which negotiations are in progress.
Messrs. Coussmaker and Colbv are still
engaged in prospecting and measuring
the extent of the gold platinum placers
in the upper Tulameen section.
Mining expert Turnbull recently made
an examination of the Independence
group at Bear creek, also visiting Boulder
creek claims.
A recent .strike on the Frisco, Bear
creek, shows a 5-foot lead assaying $16 in
gold ; silver. $2 ; copper, $3 50.
Con Fewclothes, one of the best prospectors aud billmen in the country, had
what seemed to be his last call when he
was struck with paralysis a short time
ago while alone on a creek goldhunting.
But for a charmed life and a body tough
as whalebone he would have crossed his
last divide ; he is now, however, getting
ready for another trip in spite of some
sixty years ou this old planetary orb.
Good luck, Con.
J Campbell is prospecting for gold and
platinum on Slate creek.
J. Thompson is prospecting and studying the diamond formation around Oliv
ine monntain.
The Fraser group on Kennedy mountain is showing up well with no feet of
ore. Development work shows good ore
and there is every indication of a'mine.
Voigt camp is a busy place with its
force of miners and several diamond
drills in operation. The work of developing and proving this immense mining
property goes steadily on. None but
good  reports are heard of the progress
and prospects of the B. C. Copper Co.
and the permanence o this mining camp
is assured. That is at least the summing
up of those who are in position to
judge.
Extract from Summary Report, 1902,
pp. 129-130 A. Re Platinum—In the report of last year. R W. Brock, Domin
ion Geological Director, called attention
to the possibility of platinum being found

BAILWAY POINTS,
Assistant to the president of the Great
Northern, L. C. Gilman, states that the
V.V. & E. will be 'rushed.' Guthrie &
Co. are reported to- have the contract but
thev are having some difficulty to find
subs.
Buck's survey party is working between
Orreftni'le and Fivemile on a third alternate preliminary Kettle Valley line. This
makes the 'steenth survey of this route.
This 'rush' railway construction and
'flying dirt' is an old threadbare story in
the Jimhilkameen valley. Why not do
some real, slow construction instead of
rnshing it so fast that it can't get time to
start.    Waitin' [im, yes, waitin'.
TOO MANY DOGS.
Dogs are all right in their place, but
when tbey become a menace to limb, it
not life, of people then something must
be done to abate the dangerous nuisance.
Two gentlemen walking down busy
Bridge street the other day, ab|Q*bed in
discussion of Jim Hiil's slow railway
f olicy, were overtaken by two racing son.*
< f canines, one of them striking the gen
tleman on the right just athwart his
'extremities,' causing a complete kerflop
"bac-Srard, the sidewalk resounding with
the impact of his anatomy. The situation in detail was screamingly funrisj
The gentleman is one of our most staid,
solid and respected citizens and for him
to be caricatured by such animals is an
outrage.    Out, vile dogs !

Labor Day Saw First Games of
Lacrosse Yet Played
in Valley.);'*;
Tulameen and Hedley Celebrate the;
Day and Princeton Looks on
With Pleasure.
; Labor Day was duly observed at Tulameen and Hedley and a large number
went from Princeton to help swell the
crowd and partake of the amusements.
Princeton and district band uuder leadership of Prof Gibson played at Tulameen. The Princeton lacrosse team
played a double engagement at Tulameen
aud at Hedley, it being made possiblerby^
the train service. The weather was not
p__pililJ__ _ild Ibis, no doubt, kept a few
at Home. Grouse shooting and fishing
were indulged in, otherwise the day was
observed by the banks, government office
and some of the stores.
iStollowing is the lineup at Hedley, the

Lacrosse made its first appearance and
a big 'hit' among the sports of the Simil
kameen when the Princeton team plaved
an exhibition game with Keremeos on
Labor Day at Tulameen-' It was the
first game of lacrosse many, spectators
had ever witnessed and they were, all
tickled and enthused with" its vim and
dash. Althcugh Princeton lost, 4 to 1,
congratulations were freely offered in
appreciation of their pretty work.
The opposing team was composed of
seven from Keremeos, assisted by Hen
derson of Tulameen, Heimbecker of
Coalmont and Petrie of Princeton. Sam
Gibson was referee and discharged his
onerous duties wim" "good judgment and
impartiality. Rain interfered with the
game somewhat on the start. The Keremeos team showed superior speed and
seemed to be in a class by themselves
when it came to sprinting. Hunter holds
the honor of scoring the fifstjgoal in the
gftmiUrameen valley and Brooks the honor^?) to be first penalized.
The   game at  Hedley had to be post
poned until  Tuesday morning owing to;
the rain.    The Princeton  boys played a
much  better   game   than  at Tulameen,
winning by   7 to 1.    Some  of our  boys
played  their first game on Monday and
benefitted   by   the    experience   gained!^
G_d Lyall collided with Bob Carmichael
sustaining a damaged eye, beyond which
there were no casualties.
.  _tndh' credit  is due J. F  Waddell and '
GfPi/ya]! for having the games pulled 'off*
atra lacrosse started in the Similkameen.
It was uphill work  to get a game on and
obtain_? prize  appropriation.    However,
the   game   of lacrosse   is   here  to stay.'
Mdfe games are being arranged and it is
hoped  that  citizens  of both   towns will
support Canada's national game.'

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
September 4, 1912
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Rev. Jas. Williams writes from the
Bunk House, England, that he expects
to come back this fall. In a long letter
he says much that will, no doubt, interest
his parishioners here and has graciously
given Star permission to make copious
extracts for publication or for that matter publish the whole epistle.
C. Alleyne Jones, manager for the
Princeton Collieries, Ltd , Vancouver,
was in 'town today. This company har
some 18,000 acres of coal lands which
should prove very valuable both on the
surface and in the various coal strata.
Neil McFadden is the working foreman in charge of the sidewalk layjgg,
and it goes without saying that they will
be well aud truly laid.
Victor Voigt has brought a new motorcycle of the 'Indian' brand into use
between here and Voigt camp. The
way it scampers up the hills just beats
pedestrianism to a frizzled frazzle and the
beauty of it is that it never gets 'out of
breath.' Voigt's camp is now brought
within 20 minutes of Princeton, about io
miles of a run.
Star has received from the office of the
provincial surveyc r general ten latest and
correct maps of the province, giving full
i nformation regarding its geography and
physical outlines. The maps will be
found helpful and reliable and in advance of anything hitherto published.
They may be seen by anyone at this
office.
Mrs. H. T. Rainbow is visiting relatives
at Kaslo, returning in another month.
G. H. Whiteman, of the Ptinceton Coal
& Land Co., returned yesterday from a

A GREATER SIMILKAMEEN.
Editor Star—Sir: Will you present
this to your readers and invite them to
give it some study. I have been in exhibition work for three years and have
studied the attractions, talked with the
people who want lands and mines, and
have decided that it wonld be possible
to take a crowd of people into the Okanagan and Similkameen if they could
combine business and pleasnre. It would
leave a lot of cash in these valleys. The
stampede exhibition at Calgary will have
many visitors. The sports you have at
Princeton on Dominion Day would catch
the fancy of visitors, add to that broncho
busting and roping cattle, a show of agricultural and mineral products, and
there you have enough to cover the first
few days of July. With the greatest fireworks ever seen in the interior the crowd
of land seekers and prospectors wou d
be drawn. Princeton is a central point,
convenient to the whole section.
I shall have a show of coast ores at the
Spokane Fair. Can the board of trade,',
or any persons interested in mining get
me a collection of ores for exhibition at
Spokane? Yours for a greater Similkameen. H. B. Brown.

CHICKEN VS. ROOSTEB.
Some loud conversation was overheard
in a house near the sidewalk which attracted the attention of a passerhy during the dinner hour. It appears the good
wife brought home what she had been
told was a nice, tender, spring chicken,
but which turned out to be an old 'yaller'
rooster with a hundred deep grooved
wrinkles in bis neck. The'chicken] was
stewed the usual time along with trimmings but on putting a knife to it no
more impression was made than if it had
been gutta pefcha.. Hubby was both
hungry and sore' and it was only alter
he had used up a corborundum knife
sharpener that his pattience gave way and
indulged in strong language and some
loud talk about separation. It has been
learned since that wifey, who is a great
student of fiction and fine arts, restewed
the 'chicken' 12 hours straight and then
ran it through the clothes wringer to
tender it up a bit and loosen the muscles
of this old warrior and victor of a hundred scraps. The moral to be drawn
from all this is to know a chicken from a
y dler rooster and also know how to cook
instead of wasting gray matter on the
latest novel. ■;.

THE CBEDIT SYSTEM.
There is a strong movement toward introduction of the cash system in business generally. The
railroad companies and the big departmental stores are striking illustrations of the success of cash payments. Other lines of business
might be mentioned as profiting by
the cash system but as the two
named are probably the largest
-dealers with the pubjjc they serve
the purpose better. Whoever heard
of a railroad company or departmental store failing ? ' Rare instances may be found of failure among
them, but most certainly the cause
could not be attributed to bad debts.
Many stores offer a 10 p.c. cut in
price as an inducement to pay cash.
If all would adopt this system with
possibly a larger cut, the credit
system would soon vanish. As it
is now the dealer is wholly to blame
for the perpetuation of a very bad
system. The debtless man is penalized to meet losses due to the
slow and nonpaying customers ; he
has no encouragement to trade and
consequently is indifferent where
he trades. In the case of farmers
or other crop raisers there is no
valid reason why they should not
be forehanded enough to be independent of all from whom they obtain supplies. Once out of the
credit rut into which they have
fallen through various excuses no
return to it would be tolerated.
The weekly payday would mightily
help to do away with the pernicious
c edit system and in this the government should set an example as
well as frame a law enforcing the
general observance of weekly pay.
In the event of misfortune or 'hard
lnck' benevolent institutions and
government insurance or something
akin to it should come to the relief
of those lacking the necessaries of
life. Under tbe credit system the
merchant is expected to carry those
who are thus unfortunate. He, the
merchant, is asked to play the philanthropist, often losing thereby and
seldom receiving grateful acknowledgment from those whose account
was most insecure. All this would
be changed by a cash basis of trade
taking the place of promiscuous
credit, and the merchant and customer would profit much, besides
affording at  least a partial solution
of the high cost of living. Star has
endeavored to outline some general
principles on which to afford a beginning in a great and needed reform, it remains for business men
and experts to work out the details
of the movement and the final abolition of corroding credit.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Labor Day was observed at both
Tulameen and Hedley, it being
tacitly understood that Princeton
would not interfere with either by
a formal celebration. How soon
Princetonians will duly observe tbe
day at home largely depends on
their public spiritedness and generosity. There is everything required
in the town to properly carry out a
celebration and give pleasure seekers a good time for their money.
With a fine band of music, race
track, athletic grounds, lacrosse and
baseball clubs, gun club and first
class hotel accommodation therejis
no reason why every public holiday
should not be observed and duly
honored next year in- Princeton.
'We have got the goods' for amusement and entertainment, why not
use them ? And all this is possible
without the slightest intention of
being exclusive or unneighborly
toward other towns or districts.
Preachers and church officials are
in a quandary to find the reasons
for empty seats in churches and the
general indifference toward religion
manifested by the worldly world.
With all their scholasticism, form
and sensational allurements priest
and bishop, minister and evangelist
fail to draw the multitude as the
unlettered, humble Carpenter and
fishermen did in the days of primitive Christianity. No lack of audience, although there was no oratory, high sounding subject orclassic
music. The inseparable teaching
and healing of Jesus, his earnest
simplicity, faith and love won the
crowd, the common people, and
they followed him, though they
lacked food. In departing from the
flesh he gave commission to preach
the gospel and heal the sick in tho
manner that he did. Ministers and
other disciples observe the first part
of the commission with a 'vengeance' but ignore the second part,
leaving that for the doctors. 'The
works that I do shall ye do, and
greater,' said the Master. When
return is made to the simple teaching and healing of Jesus there will
not be room in church edifices for
those of the new birth and others
desiring to know that truth which
makes men free from the bondage
of sin, disease and death.
B.C. has a population of 392,480,

IS FEAR A BANEFUL TEACHING?
jiSSfljTOR Star—Sir: JYour correspondent  under  the  heading, 'Fear is Bane
ifnl Teaching,' has made a good   mixture
of truth and   fiction.    He says: 'Liberty
of thought was not  permitted in the mediaeval ages.'    I  would  ask,  is  not fear
the deterring thought that lays behind
every law  enacted  by onr legislature in
the present  day^for the good of man ?
and does it not lay behind laws of every
nation   in  all   past and   present history ?
That the Almighty  God  should use the
Isame  means  to deter  us from breaking
his commandments  is not unreasonable,
iand we find it used all through scripture.
Had    your    correspondent    been   more
deeply  read   in   past  history, he would
possibly have found  that the  religion bf
the mediaeval age was simply  the appropriation of various heathen practices and
customs in use  in  Greece and Rome before the introduction of christinnity  and
were transferred under new names to the
so called christian church that held sway
in  the   above  ages.     If we  accept  the
teaching   of  scripture   as   th,e inspired
word   of God  to  man,  we  are bound to
receive its teaching with reference to the
eternity  of  punishment  of the  wicked,
just as readily as we receive its  teaching
with regard to the blessedness of the just.
If we reject  the  inspiration of..scrjpture.
the joy of the good and   the punishment
of the evil, in the unseen world, become
at once a  matter  of speculation.    What
that speculation is  may   be traced in tne
various  religious   thoughts  of past  and
present day religions, where  the word of
God is not  accepted   as  the guide of the
spiritual lif>*. Yours truly,
Mark Jukes.

From 1st Page.
in Nelson district and neighboring partsof
British Columbia. The reason for expecting platinum in this part of Brifish Columbia are: 1. The widespread occurrence of basic eruptive rocks, now mostly altered in sepentine. It is in such
rocks that platinum has been most frequently found, and so far as is known,
the platinum of placers has been for the
most pim derived. 2. The similarity in
tbe geological conditions here and in the
Similkameen district, where the most
productive platinum placers in North
America are located. 3. The resemblance between the chalcopyrite-pyrrho-
tite ores of this part of British Columbia
and those of the Sudbury districi, where
those ores carry sperrylife, the arsenide
of platinum. It has recently been reported as occurring in the copper ore of
the Rambler mine, 60 miles from Laia-
mie, Wyoming. In a bulletin on platinum by I, F. Kemp, just issued, the author gives th • results of his investigation?
on the occurence of platinum in the
Similkameen He found platinum to occur in quantities vary ng fr m traces to
nearly 2 ounces per ton in serpentine
hands in altered peridotite. It was also
detected in dykes of pyroxene in the
peridotite, and probably as a secondary
mineral iu an altered granite.
