MINES AND MINING
B. C. Copper Co. Calls Halt in
Development Work at
Voigt Camp.
Princeton Coal & Land Co. Increase
Tonnage Ontpnt—Leadville
Camp Active.
The B C Copper Co. have closed down
much of the development work which
has been carried on so vigorously dining
the past vear at Voigt Camp The order
came last Saturday and the men were
paid off. A drill outfit is retained on the
Ada B until certain work is completed.
It is not known what caused the unexpected stop in the wo/k and the sudden
summoning of officials to Greenwood and
New York, The annual meeting of the
B C. Copper Co. takes place in February,
at 814, Nassan street. New York, and it is
possible that certain reports have to be
made in advance. Then there i* a large
payment on the bond agreement with
E F. Voigt maturing on the 21st, and
this no doubt, requires the endorsational
teports of the Company's mining en
gingers, Messrs. Keffer and Weeksg
Whatever the cause of shutdown mayPoe,
no one doubts the existence of a great
mine or mines at Voight Camp an i
Copper Mountain. The marvellous show
ings of ore have been the subject of much
comment by wholly disinterested parties,
and the permanence of the camp undoubted. It is quite probable that cessation of work is temporary, all the
indications being in favour of the B.C.
Copper Co proceeding with the financial
e id of the deal as well as mining and
smelting on a large scale in this district.
The Princeton Coal and Land Co , paid
freight on their coal shipments over the
V., V &E. and Great Northern, amounting to over $15,000 ior November as
aga nst $10,000 in October The Vancouver shipments of coal continue to give
every satisfaction One car of coal was
shipped to Coalmont last Monday and
another is on order. The excellent
qualities of Princeton coal please
customers and the result is increased
demand It would not be surprising
if this this coal w.i shipped to Merritt,
Nanaimo and Fernie.
A rennrkable property of mica is lamination; that is. iis structure is so perfect
that it can be divided by easy cleavage
into sheets of 1-25000 inch.
A gold wire one tenth of an inch thick
will support a weight of nearly 200

LEADVILLE LUMPS.
Leadville, Dec. 4th :—It is now a little
over a year since J. C. Edward's people
took   hold   of Treasure  Mountain,   and
over seven months have passed since Col.
Robert Stevenson's parties examined tbe
Indana mine. Since then there has been
a little work done on good ore, the bigest
part of it tunnels in all about six hundred
feet, giving about six hundred tons of or.1.
The* have crosscutted the load in the
Indana at a point of about fifty feet in
and struck a good pay shoot on tbe north
or foot wall, the tunnel has had a good
shoot on either side all the way. The
gangue between is good concentrating
ore
The m gnitude of the ore bodies here
will not be known for years, as the
boundaries of thecamp are being extended
by new finds.
Strange as it "may seem, J. C. Rei'by
and Andy Jenson struck a good str'ing
strain about one mile north of the Indana,
that gives six fisures within tbe mile.
There is over 6 feet of snow at the
Indana cabin. Andy Jensen was carried
about ninety feet down the hill from the
trail by a baby snowslide.
The packers say they will keep the
trail open all winter, though it is a
difficult task.
This camp is a sure winner, the truth
of this assertion may be relied upon.
RJNCETON COAL AT COALMONT.
Editor Star—Sir : I have it on good
authority that two car loads of Princeton
coal have beer shipped, to Coalmont, for
the use of the residents, they having got
t___l of the 'fine ' variety supplied by the
Coalmont Coal•'. & Cc___ Co",' though I
hear that this company still maintain that
the long tunnel will be the best in the
long run. In the meantime the in
habitants have become exhausted in this
marathon. Yours trulv, L LX.
CHRISTMAS TREE.
A Christmas tree entertainment will be
given in the Princeton Opera House on
the evening of 19th instant. -The program;
will be almost exclusively contributed by
the children and a good time is antici
pated. The efforts of the committee to
make the occasion a complete success
have met with a worthy and liberal
response from the citizens, and everything
possible will be done to make the Xmas
tree of 1912, a red letter event in the
memories of the young generation.
ROD   AND   GUN
Rod and Gun for December, published
by W. L Taylor, Limited, Woodstocki
Ont., is an exceptionally readable
number. Among its varied list of contents may be found : The Calgary
Stampede, a description of the wonderful
historical pageant that took place last
September in that city of the plains;
'Bud Parsons,' an amusing tale of a
vouthful hunter who thirsted for the
blood of a bear. Other articles and
stories of adventure are of au exceptionally entertaining nature.
SURVEY PARTY HERE
Kettle Valley Line up Similkameen River to Tap
Voigt Camp.
Slow Headway on All Railway Con-
•  Btruction—Years of Weed Growth
on Hill's Grade.
E E. Coley, in charge of a Kettle Valley railway survey party, began work
Wednesday on a line about 15 miles long
running to Voigt Camp and Copper
Mountain. Tbe party pitched • camp
about a mile and a half above town on
CO French's farm land. This branch
line starts from the intersection of the
main line with Bridge street, and as a
preliminary is subject to revision and relocation. The large ore tonnage in
sight at Voiet Camp and'he prospect of
mines developing at Roche river, Friday,
.reek. Whipsaw, Copper and Kennedy
mountains are making the railway company reach out for this business. The
V ,V & E is already surveyed to these
sections.
A. F. Whitcomb, Great Northern engineer, W. H. Colquhoun, agent for
Guthrie & Co., Bert Hill and R. D.
Waterhouse arrived in Oroville recently
in connection with track laying on the
line between Oroville and Wenatchee.
The grass and weeds have grown on the
completed grade so beautifully that the
line will have to be uncovered, much the
same as the ruins of Pompeii. Jim is slow.
The railway and vehicle bridge over
the Fraser river at Hope for the Kettle
Valley railway will be started early in the
new year by construction of piers.
The completion of the K.V. surveys in
Coquihalla pass are expected soon and a
headquarters camp will be established in
Hope..
Tracklaying on the Wenatchee branch
from Oroville is soon to go ahead.
Jacobson & Werendorf, contractors,
will have two steam shovels at work soon
on their grading from Coalmont.
Construction on the Kettle Valley is
proceeding slowl> on the division ending
at Osprey lake, owing to scarcity of
laborers.
E. Brookes has been promoted to chief
engineer of construction on the Kettle
Valley line.
TAKES A HOLIDAY.
F. P. Cook the pioneer merchant of
Granite Creek, is opening another store
at Coalmont in a fine large building
which will be convenient for customers
and contain big stocks usually carried by
a general merchant. Since Mr. Cook
relinquished tbe cares of journalism for
the more lucrative and congenial sphere
of mercantile enterprise he will be in a
position to offer boliday bargains that
will favourably compare with best along
the frontier. With the Courier out of
mind and the 'devil' in his discard, Mr.
Cook will breathe the air of liberty once
more, and take a jaunt to the Old
Country, returning in February with his
two voung daughters who have been
eight years at college. Mr. Cook leaves
in a day or two for Bedford, England, and
a large number of friends and oldtime
acquaintances will wish him bon voyage
and quick return.
DEAR OLD SANTA.
Santa Claus sends best love to all his
dear children and asks them to be patient and good until he arrives on Christmas eve. He is camped at the head of
Granite creek among the tall spruce
trees, and, barring a small frog in his
throat, is feeling fine. He has loads of
presents, all of which were procured at
local stores (Santa does not send to
Eaton's), and his reindeer will have all
they can hanl on the big sleigh. With
silvery bells and a loud horn, Santa will
come on the wings of the wind about
midnight, and every little and big heart
will be made glad with his greetiug.
LOCAL AND GENEBAL.
A large number of subscriptions to
Star are now due ; to prevent missing any
numbers these should be paid before the
year 1912 expires. Kindly renew yonr
subscription before the New Year, and
have it run with 1913.
The moving picture show is exhibiting
some fine films and attracting good
audiences As the show is a home production it possesses the merit of leaving
the proceeds in the town and thus helping to build it up.
A dog, a man and a jag happened to be
turning a busy street corner the other
day. and all three got into a hopless mix"-
up resulting in the dog showing his teeth
in half comical, menacing grin. There
are two many dogs in Princeton and the
jags might be reduced a few, thus avoiding collisions of the sort mentioned.
The seasonable gaieties are coming
thick and fast this year, and the holidays
promise no end of entertainment and
amusement.
An elopement sensation in Hedley,
while affording no end ot gossippy
comment, is causing our confrere, Major
Megraw, to use considerable gray mat er
aud midnight electric juice in producing
the Gazette. It is no use kicking. Love
must have its course. Neither boundaries
nor barriers can confine the ' greatest
thing in the world,' and even printers are
suscepticle to its influence.
The provincial legislature opens Thursday, January 16, 1913.

SPOKANE MINING CONGRESS.
Editor Star—Sir: Will you give me
space in your paper to present to your
people the story of mining as it was shown
at the American mining congress at its
• session in Spokane, and by the object
lessons presented in the Silver lead
mining camps of the Coeur D'Alenes in
the mines visited by the excursion,
tendered the congress by the business
interests of Spokane
The American mining congress was
made up of delegates from all parts of
North America, covering all classes of
mines and including some of the foremost
operators and engineers Delegates from
B.C. were not out in the force thev should
have been, but those who were on the
line were obliged lo work overtime
to answer the inquiries as to the mineral
laws and the chances to acquire properties
_o develop.
It was one of the rules that only local
ores in which you were interested were to
be put on exhibit, with that end in view
I strove to interest your community to
furnish me ores to preserit with the camp
Hedley ores. E. P. Wheeler on Friday
Creek and Knight and Day on Whipsaw,
were the only <>wners who responded.
The Bornite from Friday Creek was
praised, btit- th_.'great inquiry was about
' the big low'g_H__ body of silver lead ores
' I:-had ores from Coopers from 23 mile,
Hope, Luke Gibson's from the Skagit, but
the Whipsaw attracted the most attention
As one operator put it, 'we can use that
it is on our side of the divide and we can
ship to Tacoma by the Oroville cutoff,
All your rope properties can be opened
up this season if you will give us the chance
to. work.' If Billy Knight could have
heard the good things said about his ore
in, the Coeur D'Alanes, he would have
thought hi8.wo(k had -not been in vain.
The Leadville Campx/res loomed up in
great force and made many friends for the
Princeton district, and there will be an
influx in the early spring of some prominent mining men who have made
mines in all parts of the world.
Of coal and copper I could give no
•personal, data of benefit to the prospective
operatttr.^ Princeton is Sfi^'the mining
map to stay but the mine owners should
get^out and meet the mining men halfway;
as ofle engineer put it, ' we cannot afford
to spend tbe time unless we have definite
data and prospects of ta deal..'
Yours truly,
H. B. BROWN.

IHE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAK
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Rev. J. Williams writes from Hurst,
Berkshire, Eng,, that he is assisting an
elderly vicar in a large country parish,
and will remain there during the winter
months.
J. Malone has gone to Nelson to spend
Christmas with his family.
It requires a little more snow to make
good sleighing, and freighters are longing for more of ihe beautiful.
Good skating has been afforded ou the
little lake near Supt. Osborne's house,
East Princeton. Many skaters walk from
town to enjoy an hour's spin on this
charming resort.
The Elite cafe is an institution of the
town, conducted by Mr. and Mrs. Moore,
who have had a wide experience in the
west as public caterers. At Yale and
Kamloops they met with a large patronage, and haying read of the prosperity of
Princetou, decided to cast their lot here.
They will, no doubt meet with the sue
cess they deserve.
The Church of England.bazaar, held in
the court house on Wednesday, was well
patronized, and the ladies of St Cuthbert's guild are much cheered over the
net result—$65.
Russell & McLean, real estate brokers
were at Nicola and Merritt on a business
visit thi week, arriving back on Thursday.
C. B. Peterson, au old 'imer in the
Bpundary country, and well known in
Princeton, took his own life on or about
the 2nd inst , by hanging. Despondency
over a- losing business transaction wa
the cause of the rash deed.
Eleven more days, then Christmas.
Henry L. Nelson has opened up in the
Britton block, up stairs, and will lie
pleased to accept orders for clothes re
pairing. He intends to give customers
satisfaction. Promptness and gootl workmanship will be his guiding principle. A
share of public patronage solicited
Keep your mental eye on the hospital
benefit masquerade ball on New Year's
eve.
E C Richardson, on the staff of A. E.
Howse & Co , has received a public
appointment at Colville, Wash., and
severs his connection with the abdve
Company in a few days In social and
musical circles, Mr. Richardson has been
considerably in vogue, and no doubt
tears will fall silently from more than one
feminine optic, as he steps aboard the
' Molasses, Ltd.,' bound for a foreign
clime.   'Twas ever thus.   'Rich'is alright.
Mr. and Mr . Frederick, relatives of
Mrs. J. L. Huston and Mrs C. Willarson,
are coming on a honeymoon visit from
Minnesota and are expected today.
The L O.L. dance on Friday , December
20 will be a hummer, as no effort is being
spared to make it a success. Prof.
Knight's eight piece orchestra will be as
follows: W. Knight, piccolo ; W. Daly,
violin; W. Garrison, violin; Mrs. Layton,
violin ; S. R. Gibson, cornet ; Mis> E
Lyall, piano; H. T. Rainbow, clarinet;
J   Heron, flute.
T. F. Whiteman, brother of G. H , has
arrived recently from England and has
accepted a situation with the Princeton
Coal & Land Co.
A flock, or more properlv a gang, oi
baldheaded woodpeckers are cutting up
good timber on Welldo. These fellows
seem to pay no attention to the law
regarding trespass, and it is just possible
that some of them may be winged. Not
content with free use of the soup springs
these woodpeckers pack away the wood,
and if movab e they would take the gold
and gypsum deposits two.
ENGLISH BELL RINGERS.
A small though, appreciative audience,
heard the Imperial bell ringers on
Monday night with pleasure and great
delight. ' Beautiful bells, how they ring.'
Had Poe heard the bells on this occasion
he would have had ample inspiration for
another verse in his famed poem. Classic
and artistic throughout, the entire
program was of genuine merit. Difficult
selections of music and humor found
spontaneous applanse. If one might
venture to suggest it would be along the
lines of old favorite choruses and part
songs-with bell accompaniment—these are
always soul stirring and more popular
than the deeper classic.

PEACE OR WAR ?
Instead of aiming for universal
peace there are preparations for
some great struggle of the visionaries, some metaphoric Armageddon that aggressive statesmen and
bloodthirsty militarists are bound
to foresee. War, with all its attendant woe and hellish misery, is in
actual process. Innocents suffer
unspeakable sorrow, mourning and
want because men in high positions
of state lend themselves to the clamor of strutting militarists, the
powder makers and dreadnought
builders. The jingo spirit is prominent in the land and conservative and liberal governments respond to the popular craze by levying burden upon burden. With all
her splendid prestige and influence
Britain could dictate world wide
peace if she would only lead the
way for the other great powers. But
no ! She panders to the fearsome
pensioned admiral and general,
whose utterances find ready echo in
a sensational loving press. Is it
true, as the jingoes assert, that the
best preservative of peace is preparedness for war ? Is it true that
a gun primed and loaded to tbe
muzzle is less dangerous than an
empty one ? Is it truth to say that
it is less menace to peace to have
everything at hair trigger readiness
for the slightest touch of offence,
thus unloosing the dogs of war in
a twinkliug ? Sober minded people will not be misled by such sophistical arguments. If the statesmen and high officers who think,
talk, encourage and make war were
obliged to serve in the trenches and
taste the miseries of the private
soldier there would be less money
invested in non-productive standing armies, murderous weapons and
huge battleships which are outof-
date in a few years.
If Canada is now to e-nbark on
a war policy after a hundred years
of peace and friendship with its
nearer neighbors it will retard development of her vast natural resources and inculcate a spirit of
militarism which must delay the
advent of universal brotherhood
and peace. If, however, Premier
Borden and his government, in their
wisdotr,  or  the liberals in Britain
and Canada in their collective wisdom, should vote for and urge an
enormous naval expenditure by the
colonies, on them must fall the tremendous responsibility. In history
yet to be written Premier Asquith
and Churchill will be burned at the
stake of public opinion for seducing
the colonies to engage in a policy
that impoverishes and destroys.
The least Britain should give in
exchange for the great moral support and huge monetary contributions from the colonies is a full and
unqualified partnership. Nothing
less than an empire parliament can
atone for the sacrifice of our present autonomy and happy independence. On these lines of union
there may be reared an empire
which from very force of example
may make for world peace and disarmament. Canada has no money
to squander on a 'tinpot navy' or
super dreadnoughts, the 'best money and skillcan build.' Apart from
that her people have no warlike
tendencies or desires. They are not
suspicious of their neighbors at any
time, excepting at elections and
then only for vote catching.
Canada has no enemies now, but
the moment she begins arming on
the proposed large scale, she will
have them. The armed attitude of
nations is synonomous with the man
who carries a gun, suggesting, if
not inviting trouble. If statesmen
really want to benefit their country
and humanity generally thoy should
spend some effort and money in the
cultivation of peaceful relations,
goodwill and the removal of all
barriers tending toward social estrangement and trade friction. Instead of thinking war, let the current of mind be turned into peaceful and constructive avenues; let
thought be weaned away from that
which would destroy the body,
property and the harmony of life
A nation's strength can no longer
be measured by her cohorts of soldiers or floating battering rams. A
pellet of dynamite shot from above
into a battleship funnel snuffs out
a thousand lives and sinks ten millions of dollars out of sight forever.
In the light of invention and unlimited genius how foolish is the
waste of money on war material
and big battleships? Children
could not be more ludicrous with
their castle building. Europe teeming with hungry millions and honest poor without home or a place to
lay the weary head, this spectacle
resulting from overburdensome taxation to keep armies of idle, nonproductive men and build navies.
Is Canada to be drawn into this
vortex of misery and woe ? Do
Canadians want to grunt and sweat
under the burdens of militarism ?
Why not choose peaceful paths ?
Under the circumstances the Premier has made a good bargain in
loaning  the  ships  and   Star com-

France has spent over 40 million dollars
in an endeavour to prevent the erosion of
t;he soil from mountains whose slopes
have been denuded of timber through
forest fires.
: The forest industry had a value lo
British Columbia in 1911 of $28 000,000
—almost equivalent to the value.of foodstuffs produced and imported
H. R. Mac.Millian, Chief Forester of
the Province has established a bureau of
information in the Forest Branch,
Victoria, from which statistics, etc ,
regarding the forest aud the forest in.
dustries may be had.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture
has made .public the results of an exhaustive investigation of lightning strokes
throughout the country. The report disposes of the belief of the ancient
philosophers that certain kinds of trees
—the laurel, aspen and beech—were
never struck by lightning, with . the
statement that ' any kind of tree is likely
to be struck.' The report shows that
lightning strikes in the Colorado plateau
region more often than any wher else in
the country, and asserts that lightning is
a prolific source of fires in the forests of
west.

Editor Star—Sir: Your correspondent, John Nathan, seems to be possessed
with that ready wit which is capable of
making the most serious thoughts of
God's revealed Word objects of mirth
and ridicule. If anyone interested in
this subject will turn to the Scriptures
he will see that my statements agree
therewith; further than that I am not
concerned. In Gen i: I, we have the
statement that 'God created the heaven
and earth.' Iu Is. 45: 18, we read it was
created to be inhabited, that it was not
made in vain. The statement in Gen.
1: 2, 'that the earth was without form
and void,' indicates that some great cat-
astsophe had happened between the fiist
and second verses of Gen. I. This catastrophe is referred to in Jude 6, 'The angels which kept not their first estate, but
left their own habitation.' In 2 Pet. 2: 4
we have the result: 'God spared not the
aiigels  that  sinned, but cast them down

to hell and delivered them into chains of
darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.'
In Ez. 28: 15 the reason is stated, 'iniquity was found in them.' In all this we
see where and through whom evil was
manifested, but not a word of the origin
of evil. Had Mr. Nathan a knowledge
of the source of evil, he should have
stated it. So far as I know, while the
origin of evil has been much sought after, it has not yet been found. The evil
here spoken of was the cause of the fall
of our first paients in the garden of Eden,
who had been created in innocence, the
results of which abide with us to the
present day. These statements are facts
of history.
The lack of fear of God, or trust in God,
on the part of man caused the fall into
sin when temptation came, shown in, 1,
man's desire to have what God had forbidden. 2, to know what God had not
revealed, and 3, to be what God had not
intended him to be. It is in these same
three points that men today disregard
both national and divine laws; the absence of fear, in the sense of love (hating
to cause offense) or terror (because of results to follow) does not deter the breaking of the above laws. The observance
of national laws marks good citizenship
and of divine laws, the more perfect life.
Their disregard results in punishment.
In these statement I do not critize God
in any way, nor do I hold Him responsible for man's shortcomings. I have only
put forward the declared results of trans
gressions of human and di ine laws:
thevr are there for our guidance, and it is
our wisdom to be guided thereby.
Having impigned the honesty of my
previous communications, I feel absolved
from taking any further .notice of his
criticisms.   Yours truly,
Mark Jukes.
