INDUSTRIAL  OPPORTUNITIES ARE   ABUNDANT  HERE
B.C.COPPER COMPANY
ACTIVE: 5 DRILLS
BIG PAYROLL
MINES   AND  MINING
Five drills are busily employed by the
B. C. Copper Co. on Copper Mountain
and no men are on the payroll. A large
amount of open cutting or trenching has
beeu made besides a lot of underground
work in tunnels and cross cuts. Tbe
work of exploring and estimating tbe ore
bodies is being pushed, when completed
railway construction will be proceeded
with from Piinceton. The advertisement
of this company appearing on another
page indicates extensive water power development on the Whipsaw. The permanency of the B. C. Copper in these
parts is beyond the doubtful stage.
T. J. Corwin arrived from the coast
this week and is engaged on his placer
leases.
W. C. Fry, of Vancouver, was in town
this week on placer mining business.
Mrs. Robertson of New York City has
been a visitor to Princeton for the past
month and is much pleased with the
town. As first lady in the camp of Messrs. Robertson and Connell at Summit
she has won a distinguished victory over
the difficulties of the trail between Tulameen and the above camp. She has valuable mining interests at the Summit.
E. E. Emmons took a party of placer
experts up the Similkameen on Wednesday.
Two picture samples of ore from the
famous Red Star at Roche river have
b»en received, one of which will be sent
to the Vancouver exhibition.
Jos. Hill of Los Angeles, Cal., has been
in Princeton for a few days on mining
business. Possibilities of the country
impressed Mr. Hill very much and he
will come again.
There are fourteen miners at work at
the Summit Camp, and it is likely the
number will be considerably increased
with the coming of the- warmer weather.
The Vancouver Chamber of Mines has
set up an exhibit of Provincial minerals
in its new headquarters and will show
collections from nearly every mineral
camp in the Province.
E P. Galliac shipped a car of gypsum
taken from Welldo to the B. C. Portland
Cement Co.'s works at E.Princeton last
Monday. About fifty tons per month
will be required for the manufacture of
cement. The Welldo gypsum is of a fine
quality and is not far from the Soup
Spriugs.
Ben Baker was taken seriously ill at
Whipsaw  last  Saturday  where   he had
been working near the Knight & Day
property. Exposure to inclement weather is thought to have an influence in
producing the painful condition with
which he is suffering.
The B. C. Copper Co. is giving notice
of application to store in a reservoir 150,
000,000 gallons of water to be used for
power purposes on Whipsaw Creek, near
Ashnola.
Oscar Lachmund, manager for the B-
C. Copper Co. at Greenwood, was in town
Monday and, accompanied by Mr. Keffer
and F. R. Weekes, went to Princess camp
Copper Mountain.
J. W. Bartlett, of Incheleum, Wash-, a
relative of S. R. Gibson, is in town on
mining bnsiness. He was in this section
some fourteen years ago and he has never
lost bis first impressions of it as a mineral
country.
Fred Keffer, mining engineer for the
B. C Copper Co , arrived on Sunday
f.orn Greenwood.
RAILWAY POINTS.
Construction on the V. V. & E. is proceeding at a very slow rate. There is
little hope of steel reaching the Merritt
branch of the Kettle Valley this fall at
Coldwater Junctiod No one knows the
reason for this dallying with time by the
V. V. & E. Probably Jim is on one of
his fishing exhibitions down where the
salmon belly grows.
There have been repeated rumors that
something was about to happen regarding
construction toward Princeton on the
Kettle Valley. Probably the greatest
shock one could receive would be the
announcement of contracts let and dirt
aflying Tom is as slow as Jim, while
Bill and Dan are 'making hay.'
Twohy Broa., railway contractors have
been employing all the men they could
get on their ten mile stretch extending
*o Coquihalla pass on the K. V. Their
orders read 'push' 'rush' any old way to
get there on time.
If rumors may even half be relied on
Princeton district will resemble a Balkan
battlefield with the network of railway
earthworks to be thrown up in all dii-
ections by Thomas, king of the C. P. R.
Down Fivemile, up Onemile, back to
Coalmont, up to Ashnola, through Princeton, round Welldo, touching the high
spots at Granite then a straight shoot to
Vancouver, meanwhile everybody wants
ihe coast connection.
GLORIOUS TWELFTH'
CELEBRATION WAS
BIG SUCCESS
GOOD CROWD, WEATHER FINE
■ The celebration ofthe 12th of July was
successfully carried out by a large number of local Orangemen and strong delegations from Hedley and Keremeos. In
spite of rain and threatening weather in
the morning together with a delayed
train, delightful sunshine and a merry
crowd made the afternoon sports a real
pleasure. Owing to the train arriving
i'/i hours late the usual address was omitted.
During the sports the Princeton band
played national and patriotic airs and
added much to the pleasure of the oc
casion. The baseball and athletic sports
as well as all the arrangements reflect
the highest credit on Committees among
whom were J. A. Osborne, W. J. Kirk.
Patrick, H. H. Avery, jr.. W. Wilson, L.
Marston, P. Russell, C. V. Prosser, J. F.
Knudson and many others.
Following is a list of the events:—

and Keremeos L. O. L, 19-6 in favor of
Princeton.
Fat Men.s Race—B. A. Peck, ist; J. A
Osborne, 2nd.

Rock drilling contest was won
Hamilton and Lyons of Hedley, 27^
ches. The Copper Mountain team, Fraser and Larsen, drilled 20 inches and un
fortunately fouled a drill hole cansing
their drill to stick.
The tugowar and the broncho bucking
contests were cancelled for lack of entries.
The dance in the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by sixty couples, which
started at 8:30 and closed at 12 o'clock
sharp.

BANE MANAGER TRANSFERRED
It will be learned with keen regret that
the present manager of the Bank of
Mcntreal, B. L. Smith, is about to be
transferred to the large and important
city of St. Catharines, Ontario, thus
severing formally the social and business
ties formed during his residence of some
sixteen months. Mr. Smith has always
been identified with any move tending to
the welfare ofthe town and his removal
is a distinct loss to our citizenship. The
one relieving feature, however, is the appreciation in which he is held by the
bank authorities and his consequeut
marked promotion. Star joins a legion
of friends in wishing Mr Smith continuous happiness and prosperity. Mr. Smith
will be succeeded by R. M. Mansfield, a
popular young bachelor, now chief accountant at Nelson. The change will
take place about the ist August.
PROGRESSIVE   PIONEER
Richard Cawston, manager of the Similkameen Fruit Lands Co., of Keremeos,
was in town on business in the early part
of the week. His company own the
Lowe ranch which is being brought into
a high state of cultivation and cleared of
scrub growth by means of a large traction
engine hauling a steel plough weighing a
half ton. Tobacco and semi-tropical
fruits are being experimented with, the
results so far indicating possibilities beyond expectation. Mr. Cawston is one
of the earliest pioneers of the Similkameen and along with "Lord O'Kanagin"
and the late Frank Richter established
the fame of this country for fruit, cattle
and horse raising.
H. B. Brown arrived from the coast
via Hope and Ashnola on Wednesday.
He brings the encouraging information
that land and mining investors are looking toward the Similkameen and Boundary districts. Many of them could not
be enticed this way two years ago .wing
to the fortunes in real estate at the coast,
now they want to escape the temporary
depression and get some ground floor investments or buy improved properties
J. H. Jackson, one of the eerliest residents of Princeton, was in town this
week.

set on the linotype in this office and he
mails down his copy every Tuesday
morning so that the slugs can be return
ed at tbe earliest possible date. Last
Tuesday he sent in his copy as usual and
it reached this office Friday morning
This necessitated remaining up most of
Friday night to get up the type, and the
Star in consequence was two or three
days late in getting out.—OrOville Gazette.

SOME POINTERS
ijffifo.With a pinched money market
and the resultant depression in commercial and industrial centers, a
gleam of refreshing light and encouragement may be observed in
the fact that investors are turning
from a satiety of speculation in real
estate to the more solid and less refractory field for investment offered
in lands and mines. From wildcat
city lots and tall buildings capital
has turned to the inviting cohntry
whose resources are still in a state
of virginity. A year or two ago
people were tumbling over each
other in a mad scramble for city
property. Keen-eyed and sharp
s .outs went up and down the country hawking city property and crying 'buy of.me and getrichquick.'
Now the scout is no more. In his
place a tide of enquiries, by letter
and personal visitation of the genuine investor, have been features of
the. inevitable reaction. Do you
know of any good investment? is a
frequent question addressed to residents of the -interior towns and
country.
While the eager speculator of a
year or two ago is surfeited with
real estate aud has regained normal
reasoning power now is the time to
induce him to come our way and
partake ofthe genuine bargains offering. He cannot fail in his
quest no matter what town or part
of the Similkameen he may select
for investment. Owners of lands,
mining property or real estate in
this district have had no booms to
upset the logical basis upon which
present prices rest. To any investor this condition must appeal with
the force of a challenge 'to do it
now!' And for variety of investment there can be no possible
ground for complaint. Town and
country present scope for the widest
choice in lands and industries.
Coal, lode and placer mining and
a field for prospecting for minerals
cannot be surpassed in any country
for variety or extent.
A duty devolves upon every citizen and resident to induce and encourage by all legitimate means the
inflow oi investors and homeseekers
now turning   their   thoughts   and
footsteps   away   from    the    cities.
When a stranger arrives within the
gates inform him   with   a   candor
that will win his confidence  of the
opportunities that await him in this
new  and   naturally  rich   country.
Give him honest   and   straightforward   advice.    Above   all   do   not
sicken him with praise of your own
property aud denounce or condemn
your   neighbors'.      Visitors   have
frequently complained of that spirit
of knock   and   inharmony    which
they have iound in and around this
section.    If it  is   not   possible   to
speak the good word or  praise  another's property, be it   mineral   or
other, refrain from any depreciating
remark and probable lie.    Nothing
more  quickly   disgusts  a  stranger
than a rehearsal of ill   feeling  and
jealous knocking on the  part  of a
resident.    One optimist is worth  a
hundred grouchers in building up a
city or country and inducing   those
who come to remain or invest.    An
effectual way to  prevent  a  second
visit from persons who come to spy
out the land is to hound them with
a long  hard-luck  story   and   paint
everybody black.    Tbe   old,   hackneyed phrase: 'if you   can't   boost
don't knock' contains a lot   of wisdom and sound advice.
A merchant who does not exhibit, display or advertise his goods
would be considered out of date.
That is no less true of the. farmer,
the miner or prospector, who does
hot exhibit his vegetables, fruit and
grain or minerals. In the Princeton disirict there are minerals of almost every kind yet there has never
been a collection of them placed on
permanent exhibition which was
thoroughly representative. No organized effort worthy ofthe fame of
this district for its minerals has
been made toward a permanent exhibit. If the resonrces of the district are not "disylayed we are, as a
community, woefully handicapped
in competition for capital with the
districts that specialize with ore and
other displays." It is a necessary
undertaking to at once place on exhibition here and at Vancouver a
comprehensive exhibit of every ore,
coals, clay, paint, etc., native to
these parts. Geologists from every
part of the world are now gathering
in Toronto, some ot whom will visit
Princeton. The impressions and
opinions that these gentlemeh will
form of a district as a mineral field
and probable producer, if favorable,
will be invaluable used in recom-
thending to the consideration of
capitalists and mining men. Every
resident should assist in the collection of a mineral exhibit for all will
benefit by the development of the
mining industry.

The manufacture of cement will begin in a few

with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two
railways will serve transportation.

The following have been appointed the
B. C. honorary councillors and members
of the finance committee in connection
with the International Geological Congress gathering and excursions: Sir Richard McBride, W. Fleet Robertson, A. C.
Flumerfelt, R. P. Buchart, of Victoria;
Robt. Kelly of Vancouver; R. H. Stewart
of Trail; Fred Keffer, of Greenwood.
The meetings of Congress will begin at
Toronto on August 7th and terminate
14th. _fter the meeting the excursions
to the Western provinces and the Yukon
will be undertaken.
How many mines are there in the United States? Tfyis is a question that is
often asked. As nearly as can be determined there are 6,500 coal mines. Of
metal mines there are about 6,000, producing and developing. With respect to
the ruetalurgical works w_ can speak
more accurately.v There are nine copper
refineries and 45 smelters. There are -28
lead smelting works, 28 zinc and 314 iron.
The occurence of vanadium in the ash
of coal and other carbonaceous deposits
in Peru has been known for some time.
A.Jorissen now announces (Bull, de la
Soc. Chim. Beige No. 21, 1913) that molybdenum is fount', in the cinders of certain Belgian coals, and that it exists in
water soluble form. The moral seems to
be that ashes from coal from diversely
mineralized districts should be examined
for rare and precious metals.
'A shaft is being sunk on the coal prop
erty ofthe Midway Coal Co., at Midway,
and they report the finding of some very
good grade coal.
