STEAMBOAT AHOY!
Mining Camp to have Newspaper to Make Known
Vast Riches.
Road and Trail from Princeton is Unequalled for Prospectors
or Sportsmen
Steamboat mining camp 'looms large'
in the eyes of the mining world at this
present time. It is said to be the richest
and largest gold ore proposition that has
ever been _iscovere_r~TtVt__rgolden west
of North America.^ Thie average of seven
assays recently maofeAjf tbe porphyritic
ore in which the values occur was $33 a
ton. In other instances as high as $3000
per ton has been found.
.   The Inevitable Newspaper.
A newspaper will shortly be published
at Steamboat to be called the Nugget by
Godenrath & Clgrfe. Both are oldtime
journalists in B.C. and Steamboat will
not suffer for want of the 'latest' or in
strong advocacy of it* right and merits.
Vancouver aud Goldfields, Nev., capital is being used to develop some of the
lirst discovered claims in Steamboat and
companies are now  organized to operate
snow at the summit of Railroad Pass 3^
feet deep and on Steamboat mountain it
was 7 feet.
Good Grass, Good Fish,
When the new trail is made it will be
possible to make Steamboat with loaded
pack train from Princeton easily in three
days and light in two days. Camping
places are plentiful all along the route
and grass is good. The streams and
Lightning lakes are alive with trout and
there is fine hunting in season. From
various yiewpoints it will be observed,
that this route to Steamboat is unexcelled
and all information aud supplies may be
obtained at Princeton.
properties and install reduction plajfta.
With the opening of the season and/dis_
appearance of snow a big stampede of
miners and prospectors is anticipated.
Prospector _ Paradise.
From Princeton to Steamboat there is
a continuous stretch of mineralized coun
try which offers unequalled inducements
for prospectors. It has been roughly
estimated that some two thousand claims
have been staked in Steamboat and district but this number could be easily doubled if the country along Hope mountains and eastward were thoroughly pros
pected. It is admitted by all who have
seen this section that it is prolific in resources of which mineral is chief. It is
a prospector's paradise, most of it waiting for the footprints of man and the
magic touch of capital.
Build Trail in Week.
The road and trail "leading to Steamboat camp from Princeton tuns via Ashnola, Kennedy mountain, Roche river
camp, up Cambie creek to Steamboat.
C. M. Snowden was recently over this
route and in company with J. Crowley |
staked 32_mineral  claims on Steamboat
mountain ; Gus Pouwels also staking a
similar number. By the old trail, Mr.
Snowden states there are eight crossings
of Roche river which can be easily obviated by making a new trail along the
north bank. He is confident that a pass
able trail to Steamboat can be made in a
week with a small gang of men.
On March 24th Mr. Snowden found the
SIGNS OF PROGRESS.
A well signed pe^j^ion for a post

recently circulated and forwarded
to the P. O. Department, Ottawa.
New settlers and increase of population generally/accounts for the
necessity of a Wst office. This section of countrw is favorably situated for railroad connection, the
building Kettle Valley line traversing the settlement. As a progressive and enlightened community
the settlers ask that the government

they will do the rest. There arc

A GREAT POWDER.
' Lionite,' the new/blasting explosive, is now to be/manufactured
on a large scale byiaf new company,
'The British Columbia Safety Powder Co., Ltd.,' the prospectus for
which may, with other information,
be obtained from J. D. Lumsden

PLATINUM IN ROCK

Diamond Field on Tulameen

this Season.
President Hill Gives Free Transportation to Mineral Exhibits for
Vancouver Fair. Jf*'
In a letter expressing thanks for
Star and map, Chas. Camsell, geologist, writes from Ottawa that 'the
sample of chromite from which the
dia3T5lTthr'w5£-C-_t_jned also yielded platinuai_and gold. T_u__L_J;be
first _Ujne_Ibave been able to see
the platinutnTn~so+rd'rock.' * *
'Practically"all the diamonds obtained are clear and white, apparently excellent gem stones, if we
can only find them big enough-and
there is no reason why we should
not.'
Interest in the diamond discovery in the Tulameen section continues. Actual prospecting for diamonds in the 'wash' will begin as
soon as tbe snow leaves that alti
tude. .£.
J. F. Coats, engineer, for the
Princeton Collieries Co./ is getting
things in shape in WdstPrir/ceton
for development of tne coaTmine
for which a 500 ton capacity tipple
will be erected.
The Great Northern has promised to give free transportation to
mineral exhibits for the Vancouver
mining exhibition next fall.
A gang of men arrived yesterday
to work on the big cement works.
ERE DOES' THE ^LA^_Sc__?E ?
What May prove to be a conspiracy between the C.P.R, and the
Great Northern to giye the Star a
nasty 'throw dtown^owing to its
attitude on universal peace consists
in the 'loss' of a valuable consignment of paper sl__ppe4~-fre__---Tor:r

These two railway companies hate
each other and are always scrapping, so much so, that innocent
noncombatants suffer when freight
has to be transferred from one line
to the other. Star just gives these
companies seven days to produce or
there will be trouble before the rail'
