MINING MEN ARRIVE
Vl|lT SBCTI ClNS OF
M1 DISTRICT
MINES  AND MINING
A. Allen, lawyer and mining investor
ef Spokane, accompanied by E. Bhen-
berg, mining-expert, R. H. Schutz and
Col. Stevenson returned last Sunday
from a trip to Leadville where they had
been examining the Summit No. 1 and
the Indiana mineral group. Mr. Allen
was largely interested in the Coeur d'Al
tuies and knows the history of the celebrated Lunker Hill and other silver lead
properties. He is p eased with, the showings at Leadville and believes that on fur-
ther development the properties will
compare favorably with the best on- the
continent. The high-grade quality of
the ore at the surface and its tendency to
widen at depth lead to his conclusion
that a great camp isiu formation at Leadville. He saw mud& lower grade of ore
hauled.in the Co ur d'Alenes for a dist-
tance of twenty-five- miles on sleighs
when the snow measured from 5 to 15
feet in depth. He is of op'lnion that
hauliug ore trom Leadville to the railroad, 22 miles, could be accomplished
with less difficulty were the road made
accessible to the camp. His idea is to
get a road quickly to->Leadville at as
small expense as possible and the natural
wear of freighting and travel will soon
t@.nsform the rough spots into good going. This is Mr. Allen's first visit to'
Princetou and Leadville. He sees a
country with great mineral prospects and
speaks in high terms of commendation of
all that he'saw He left for Edmonton
last Monday.
Oscar Lachmund, manager ofthe B. C.

The B. C. Portland Cement Co.'s plant
at E. Princeton has been closed down
owing to subsidence of the boilers A
poor quality of brick was used in laying

000,000 which is an increase of $30 000
000 or:29T.per ceu.Sover the figures that
were presented for the preceeding year.
The figures show that the per capita pro
duction of minerals for the last year was
about $18. The statistics credit 46 per
cent, ofthe tmneral output to metals,
while the remaining 54 per cent, is composed of non-metallic substances.
J: B. Green, placer miuing expert, arrived Tuesday from Seattle and will examine placers at and near Ro^ny.cajpip.i..
J. Knudson ahd J. B. Meausette!' will
make _ trip to their Iceland spar proposition near Ashnola junction litis week

SALE OPENS TUESDAY AUG. 26
This issue carries elsewhere an announcement of a Public Sale of the A. E.
Howse Co.'s stock of general merchandise.
This is advertised as something more
than an ordinary clearance sale. Mr.
Howse says that the bargains offered will
eclipse all previous efforts along .this line
because they are compelled to sell at
least $10,000 worth of stock before Sept.
15th in order to make some important
changes in their business which cannot
be carried out until the stock has been
reduced a great deal.
An unusual offer of $1 00 cash to each
of the ten persons who are first to enter
the store when the sale opens at 9 a. m
on Tuesday August 26, has created considerable interest and there is sure to be
a large crowd on hand.
Another feature of the sale which will
make it an object to the people to attend
every day is what they term their Big
Ben bargains which will be offered every
day for one half-_tc>U.r only Every day
something different will be offered at a
price said to be below wholesale cost in
every instance—from 10 to 10.30 a. m.
only.
Mr. Howse explains that this will be
done to attract big crowds of people ev-
sry day—who he frankly states will buy
many othur goods too once they are in
the. store and see the unusual bargains on
every hand.

GEOLOGICAL
The great geological congress representative of all nations which
has just terminated at Toronto will
have an important practical bearing
on the study of geology in Canada
and the further quest for minerals.
The several hundreds of savants
gathered from the ends of the earth
to disDuss matters relating to this
most interesting science have by
their presence paid a most distinct
compliment to Canada as a field affording vast and varied research in
the mineral kingdom, From their
congressional labors these gentlemen are spread out in all directions
over the; country personally investigating the peculiar geologic conditions of the districts visited. In
a day or two a section of about one
hundred geologists assigned to
British Columbia will visit all the
important mining camps in Kootenay, Boundary, Similkameen, Nicola and coast districts. The contingent coming to Princeton will be
chaperoned by Charles Camsell,
himself a geologist of excellent repute and one who knows from yearly investigations the district as no
other person living does. He was
the discoverer of diamonds near
Tulameen and brings to bear on
his work in Princeton and district
an enthusiastic zeal and thoroughness which make his governmental
reports at Ottawa enlightening and
highly appreciable by all engaged
in mining and prospecting. In the
absence of any municipal official
Star humbly extends a hearty welcome on behalf of the people of the
Similkameen district to the distinguished visitors and bids them accept the freedom of the several
towns and mining camps. That
their visit may be one of pleasure
and profit to themselves, fruitful in
the instruction of students and the
edification ofthe world at,large and
heneficial to the people immediately
concerned in the progress and development of vast mineral resources
is the sincere wish of every subject
and resident.
The science of geology is probably the most interesting and fascinating of all studies. I/ike astronomy it is somewhat mysterious, mythical, for it is not possible   to   de
monstrate the truth of matter which
cannot be apprehended by some one
or all of the human senses. The
theory that the center of the earth
is all afire and molten has received
no verification beyond suppositional
conditions. Ceologists would confer an incalculable benefit on the
human race if they could produce
demonstrable .proof of the existence
of an inexhaustible store ot heat in
the bowels of the earth. The economic value of such a resource is beyond estimation. Not only could
this resource be made to serve the
housewife and the sturdy chef but
it would be possible to regulate the
seasons at will. Tapping this furnace and distributing its heat is a
mere matter of mechanical contrivance. May Star be forgiven for so
crudely and abruptly presenting a
mere bint to our friends and benefactors, the geologists.
THE PANAMA CANAL
When a man or a nation will sacrifice honor by breaking a promise
or violating a treaty for money gain
then that man or nation is in danger of great humiliation, loss, and
probable downfall. To lose the respect of fellow men is a most deplorable condition, destructive of happiness and obliteration from good
society and friendship. That a
great nation like the United States
should repudiate a treaty regarding
the Panama Canal to appease the
insatiate greed of millionaires and
monopolists for more dollars is one
of the most pitiable phases of unrighteous depravity on lecord. No
doubt it is galling Uncle Sam to
know that ninety per cent, of the
ships to use the canal will be British but he ought to be 'sport'
enough to stand by his pledge and
word of honor. Let him or anyone
■read the treaty and then see if there
is not a definite and explicit promise which he now wants toignom-
inously break. Here is a section
ofthe treaty:—
'The canal shall be free and open to the
vessels of commerce and war of all nations on terms of entire equality, so that
there shall be no discrimination against
any nation or its citizens or subjects in
respects to the conditions or charges of
traffic; such conditions and charges of
traffic shall be just and equitable.'
Star does not desire to play the
role af a buttinsky but it is sure of
pardon if it suggests to our neighbors that close adherence to its
pledged word is the only method by
which it can maintain its heretofoie
high standing among nations.
Further there is a certain retribution and. compensatory punishment
in store for all who forsake honor
for mere pelf. The ghosts of
George Washington and Abraham
Lincoln will forever haunt the
'white house' if a president should
be found weak enough," to deny
other naiions the same rights and
equality that he would expect to
receive from them.

THE WIDE WORLD.
Vancouver bank managers interviewed
recently stated that financial conditions
will reach the normal stage at an early
date. Money, like water is finding its
own level, was remarked by one banker.
The city's commercial standing is sound
and speculation has been curbed- Contrary to populat belief, the banks of British Columbia have advanced $22,000,000
on loan in excess of deposits.
The Welland Canal, connecting the St.
Lawrence with the Great Lakes, is undergoing improvements of such magnitude
that they will total Bbout $2,000,000 per
mile. The canal, which is twenty-five
-miles in length, traverres a lo fty divide
over which it is necessary to raise vessels
to a total vertical height of 326 feet. The
new work of improvement, taken in connection with the deepening and widening of the St Lawrence channel, will
have a most important effect on the problems of movement Of freight from the
Northwest to the Atlantic seaboard.
SUGAR A SURGICAL ANTISEPTIC
It has long been known that sugar was
a disinfecting and preservative agent. The
fact is even said to have been mentioned
by Galen. But it is rather novel to learn
from La Revue that an eminent German
surgeon, Dr. Georg Magnus, of Munich,
who is famous as a traumatologist, recommends it strongly as a dres ing for
wounds. All sacbarine substances are
good but pure cane sugar or beet sugar is
best. Its disinfecting and sterilizing
qualities are excellent It is not injurious to the blood, as has been wrongly
believed, and is a better preventative of
-putrefaction and contamination bv mi
crobes than ordinary medical antiseptics
STAY WITH IT
There are just as many good fish in the
sea
As ever were caught in a net;
And anglers all over the world will agree
The best one is swimming there  yet.
So do not repine
If the end of your line
Shows no sign that   there's   anything
tugging;
Just stick to your work,
Don't weaken or shirk—
For nothing will come   without   plugging-
