OCR DOMINION DAY
Celebration at Princeton will
be on Generous Scale,
as Usual.
Money Up and More to Follow—Enthusiastic Meeting—Everybody
Will Celebrate.
A well attended .meeting was held last
night to consider ways and means for a
celebration of the national Dominion
Day. Working committees were formed
on the result of whose reports to be received tomorrow night definite information for the public will be given. Do
minion Day has been long looked upon
as Princeton's one great annual gala day
which must not be allowed to pass unobserved, or in a slighting manner.
An outline of the celebration may be
given under the heads of horse racing,
baseball and dancing, with other attractions to he announced as the appropria
tions are made by the several committees
appointed.
The Soliciting Committee in a few
hours' canvass raised nearly $500 and
they feel that considerable additions will
swell that sum to a still larger amount.
Generous purses will be given. Horse
racing will be oue of the leading features.
Open handed hospitality will be dispensed and everybody welcome.
Everybody come and bring wives,
sweethearts and tillicutns.
The 1908 celebration is an assured
event. \ Everyone boost it.
COAL EXPERTS HEBE.
Eminent   in   Profession, they Visit
Mines and Take Samples.
Dr. J. B. Porter, Professor in McGill
University School of Mines, and O. H.
Whiteside, general manager of coal
mines at Coleman, Alb., were registered
at the Great Northern Saturday last.
It was the first visit these gentlemen had
pud Princeton. They were very much
interested in the coal mine of the Vermilion Forks Co., and were pleased with
the natural beauties of the town. They
went up to Granite Creek and thence to
the North Fork coking coal mines. Dr.
Porter brought thirty-two McGill stu-
entsof mining to the Boundary that they
might see it and smelting in actual operation. Next year he hopes to bring his
s udents to Princeton, which he.considers a field of almost bewildering variety
in mineral resources and therefore specially inviting to the student. He took
a lot of coal and ore samples with him.
Fred Wampole has recently shot some
fine specimens of black'bear.
FARMERS' INSTITUTE.
The formation of a Farmers' Institute
in Princeton district has been some time
under consideration by some of the practical exponents of agriculture. It is felt
that there is much need of farmers being
brought together for mutual help and exchange of opinion, as well as to embrace
the opportunity for educative lectures
afforded by the Farmers' Institute. This
is the growing time of the Similkameen
A letter to the Department of Agripul-.
ture, Victoria, or to Mr. Shatford, MP.P.
will bring the information requisite to
form an Institute.
SHOULD PRESERVE ORDER.
Complaints are made of the disorder-
liness last Saturday night and Sunday in
the business quarter of the town. Business men haye good grounds to make a
strenuous kick at tte brawling exhibitions on the main street and to inquire
how much of it is to be permitted by the
appointed authorities, in whom remedy
lies. Public opinion is verv outspoken as
to the necessity for nipping in the bud
any breaches of the peace, so flagrantly
committed that ladies and youths cannot help observing it. The magisterial
bench has always expressed an earnest
willingness to suppress these outbreaks
in our usually quiet, peace loving and
respectable town, and it is only necessary
to have cases legally brought before them
that severe yet just sentence may be pronounced on offenders.
SNOW ON HOPE SUMMIT.
Murdoch Mclntyre, of Phoenix, was
in Princeton last week with a band of
horses which he intended to take over
the Hope mountains to Vancouver. He
was warned of the Pass and leaving his
horses here reconnoitred as far' as the.
summit. He found six feet of snow
there. Not caring to venture with his
valuable horses and the lives of those
with him he hoped to reach the coast
via Nicola. He was accompanied by J.
Barker and Jno. Lyons, English jockeys,
and C. McCuaig and Nap Docksteader.

UNION IS STRENGTH
Application of Old Axiom to
Mining Conditions in
this District.
Miners' Cooperative Association wonld
Hasten Development of Vast
Mineral Resources.
Editor Star—Sir:. Prospectors and
mining property holders of limited means
aftea they have been in an isolated dis
trict for some time forget the ways of the
outside world, and also forget that there
are millions of people who have propositions to offer the man with capital. Further, the tuaa who does things on a large
scale has a large force of well paid employees around him, this being necessary
to protect his capital. To keep this force
of employees and to earn profits on his
capital it stands to reason he must make
;both wise and profitable investments.
The man, or men, with smaller means
are more ready to reach and so the busi
ness of the world goes on from the found
er, up the ladder, to the capitalist.
Copper Mountain, and other districts
as well surrounding Princeton, are being
held back for the reason that the prospector and persons having small mineral showings on their claims are mostly
trying to step from the bottom round of
the ladder to the top in one step. But,
sir, you will find in the future, as you
have seen in the past, that it will be a
long and rough route.
I have been in a good many mining districts and I have no hesitation in saying
that there are as goon prospects here as
many other districts have, which are now
among the producers and which have not
been known half the length of time.
Why is this ? I will endeavor to tell
you iu a few words. Mining people in
those districts have discovered and developed the art of cooperation. In this
way they have joined interests and forces
and have developed their respective districts, so that the men who are able and
capable of handling large propositions
have been attracted there and on arriving in the district found things.m such
shape that no time was lost in getting
results, or the waste of the time of a valuable and well paid employee. Show
such men where they can make money,
no matter how large the investment, and
their money is ready.
By a cooperative movement in a district properties that are now held at an
absurd valuation might be proven to be
worth five times as much. For instance,
today people are offered properties on
Copper Mountain for a certain price and
you are the unfortunate victim to have
thrown back at you that he can  get just

POETIC LINES TO YOUNG LADY.
Miss Popple, visiting for some months
past with Mr. and Mrs Coulthard, leaves
tomorrow for her home, Blaine, Wash.
During her stay here she has won many
friends who are loth to part with her.
An accomplished pianiste, coupled with
pleasant social qualities it is not at all
strange that Miss Popple should be the
recipient of poetic expressions which the
Star is requested to append, as follows :
Wait till the railroad's finished
And the cars go rolling by,
We will be jolly fellows,
Don't .you sigh I
Down to the co^st we'll wander—
Mi ,s Popple.you and I,
Wait till the railroad's finished,
By and by. M.
It has happened in this unromantic age
that lines less fervent than the above have
led up to Popping the Question. When
the railroad comes, and theStaris almost
out of patience waiting for it, Uncle Jim
Hill should run a honeymoon train from
Princeton for the pleasure of old, young
and prospective married couples.
STRUCK IT RICH.
Robert Stevenson returned last week
from Nickel Plate Mountain at Hedley
where a rich strike was made on his claim
the Chippewa. He brought samples with
him, which under a powerful glass show
the ore to be literally bespattered with
the 'yellow metal.' The Chippewa is on
the same lead as the well known Sunny-
side and promises to be equally valuable.
|Mr. Stevenson, now easily the oldest
frontiersman in the district, believes that
he has at last made his fortune and will
be able to retire from the hills in comfort
and luxury.   So may it be, says everyone.

MUST BE COOPERATION.
Of the thousands of investors,
mining men, and casual visitors
who have been in the Princeton
district none has ever given expression to doubt as to the great
natural resources of this section.
It is a matter of worthy pride for
prospectors to point out to the investigator the various sources of mineral wealth and the remarkable deposits which abonnd throughout
the whole district. After the enlightenment resulting from the
mutual interchange of thought then
follows the question of investment
with all the details of price, terms,
location, time and so on. Just here
is where all the difficulty lies.
To secure the co-operation of the
numerous owners of contiguous
mineral properties has been and is
a futile task so far as a deal of any
magnitude or . importance has been
undertaken here. Operations of
capital are always on a wholesale,
.not a retail basis. It must bave
large holdings, especially in a low
grade mineral field. If there is no
unanimity among the owners of
^-mineral claims as to price and conditions and an organized scheme of
general development probable investors become disheartened and
•capital turns on its heel and walks
out of the country. How many
engineers, mining men and experts
have there been in this country during the past ten years ? All pleased
with the mineral . indications and
showings, yet not one deal fully
consummated, the turnover completed and capital ready to begin
development and production.
Correspondence in this issue of
the Star breaks the ice in regard to
a solution of the deadlock between
capital and the mineral claim owner
in respect of one camp or section.
He points to one definite and feasible scheme, based upon experience
in other mining sections, for the
proving . and development of Copper mountain. The tunnel idea is
not new. It has been suggested
by every mining man of note and
endorsedjtpy intelligent prospectors
and miners generally. What the
scheme lacked was forceful initiative by a competent mining engineer and the concerted action of the
miners, prospectors and otners interested in Copper mountain. The
formation of a Miner's Cooperative
Association for the development of
Copper mountain is a  simple pro
cedure and, no doubt, the best way
to bring about united action. The
discussion of the tunnel problem
by the Association is the popular
and methodical way of arriving at
conclusions where many are interested, on which alone action can be
founded for the formation of a company to drive the tunnel.
In Washington, Oregon and other
states the tunnel scheme is in operation and works well. A tunnel
proposition is now about to assume
form by which Greenwood and
Phoenix mining camps will be connected at 2,000 feet depth. The
scheme has the sanction of mine
owners along the route and will be
subsidized by Greenwood City
Council to the amount of $50,000.
The estimated cost of this tunnel
is $3,000,000.
To tunnel Copper mountain so
that the mineral zone would be
equally divided and permit of laterals being run from either side
requires an estimated length of at
least two miles. The project would
involve a large outlay but would in
the end pay big in results achieved.
The proposed tunnel would start
on the east side of the Similkameen
at or near Ashnola and run in a
sputh easterly course. It is believed that a considerable distance
of the tunnel would be in ore.
Once the project is properly
presented to . financiers there is no
doubt of the money being available providing a reasonable understanding with the mineral holders
can be effected.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
If the government telephone line
was intended to be of use and benefit to Princeton it has failed ; if it
was intended to be an ornament to
the streets it has also failed. Therefore, a thing that is neither of use
nor ornament is worse than nothing
and ought to be improved, or killed
entirely to save expense of maintenance.
Our esteemed cotemporary, the
Hedley Gazette, with apparently
no fear of the 'sky-pilots' or the
Pilot who will, it is hoped, finally
steer his frail bark or barque across
the bar, has undertaken that stupendous enterprise, "the union of
the churches." Brother, the object
is good and you have our'benediction but we do not think those
pilot fellows who have not learned
to box tbe compass yet will profit
by yourinterference. Let us rather
write of gold, of copper, of common coal, something materialistic
and for the development of our
great resources. Be good, but do
not worry about the churches, the
great Unseen Hand is shaping them
and all the human family into a
common brotherhood, when editors
will quarrel no more and the lion
and the lamb (inside) will lie down
together. Now, what are the latest
copper quotations ?

as good a property at his own price.
Develop Princeton district as it should
be and there is not the slightest doubt
there will be a demand for our mining
properties.
It is complained that we are poor pro
spectors and have no money to develop
with. If we study and work the Miners'
Cooperative plan of organization we will
get money. I know of no district that
needs cooperative work so much as this
one.
By such cooperative work money could
be secuied that would enable the running
of one large tunnel from the Similkameen River under Copper Mountain the
required distance. This done, that particular section is ready to be placed before the world as a producer, if such it
proves to be. And any man of experience who knows anything of that district will agree with me that such steps
are necessary in order to develop the
properties there and increase values, on
account of depth and water difficulties.
Can you imagine one man doing such development work ? I say, 'No.' Because
he would have all the expense to bear
and every other claim holder would reap
the harvest.
From this suggestion can one not see
what cooperation would do for the district, for the town and the province as
well, and last but not least, the prospector and claim holder.
Mr. Editor, I am glad to see you at the
helm once more,  knowing  that you are
an  ardent   advocate    and earnest   supporter of the mineral  resources of the
Similkameen district as a whole.
Yours truly,
