OLD GRANITE CREEK
Gold and Platinum, Coal and
Iron, Contributory to
Granite Camp.
Sound of Dredger Whistle  Awakes
Old Timers to Prophetic Visions
Glorious Future.
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
Granite Creek, B.C., June 5 —Granite
Creek, like that fabled bird of tbe ancients, U rising from the ashes of the past
and is spreading her wings lor a long
flight of prosperity.
In the creek just opposite the town a
dredger is breaking the old time silence
of inaction and is adding to the world's
wealth of the precious metals. The
music of the whistle on the dredge' as.it
sounds the noon hour gladdens the heart
of the hungry worker.
Four miles up the. Creek R. A. Lam
bert is getting ready to prosecute a vigorous campaign at placer mining when
the high water is over.' Old timers who
know the Creek predict that when the
season is over Mr. Lambert will return
to the busy city Dy the sea laden with
mineral wealth—so mote it be.
The man with the prophetic eye—the
e>e that penetrates far into the future—
bases the coming greatness of Granite
Creek on her vast resources af coal and
iron. Some four miles above Granite
City there is a veritable mountain of
coal. This property is bonded to the
Erl syndicate, and under the able management of its mining superintendent,
Mr. Corkle, the property has been prospected to the extent of showing up more
good coking coal than is to be found anywhere on the Pacific slope.
About three miles west of this coal belt
there is one of the largest iron dykes in
B.C. When transportation facilities are
completed and this wealth is turned into
the avenues of commerce this "Sleepy
Hollow" will become another Pittsburg.
The old town of Granite is beginning
to show that the la.'t present in Pandora's
box (Hope) is still with us, for new buildings are going up and main street presents a scene of activity such as has not
been seen here since the early days of
placer mining. Men walk with an assured tread—as if they intended going
somewhere and intended getting there.
Across the river on the townsite of
Welldo C. O. (•' Samson") French is
erecting a large building—he is not sure
yet whether it will be an assembly hall
or an opera house.
The Granite Creek hotel has changed
hands, DeBarro retiring and is now training to fight the battle of life in double
harness.    But his  place  is ably filled bv
the genial John  Gillan (late dispenser of
sherbets and other soft drinks in the village of Hedley) and  who is now High
Priest in this famous old temple of Bac
chus.
COAL MINE NOT WORKING.
Work on the North Fork coal mines
near Granite Creek has been temporarily
sispended, some fifteen or sixteen men
having been laid-off. The coal measure
there has been developed enough to show
that a vast quantity is ready to be produced when transportation is ready. It
is understood that the bond given by the
Erl syndicate has matured and that a
transfer of the property to practical coal
mining and coke makers is under way.
A number, of experts and coal investors
have recently investigated the coal and
workings and seem satisfied as to extent
and quality.
IMPORTANT REPORTS.
The Star expresses thanks to Constable Hewat, Deputy Game Warden for
this district, for a copy of the Third
Report of the Provincial Game and.
Forest Warden, A. Bryan Williams, J.P.,
Vancouver. Thanks are also due to Pre
mier McBride for copies of the Annual
Report of the Minister of Mines, 1907.
The Star will make copious extracts from
these reports in a-future issue.

but No Danger of Flood

OUR DOMINION DAY
Committees are Working Like
Beavers and Citizens
Help Out.
Now is the time for citizens to put up
flagpoles and get their flags and bunting
in readiness for the Glorious First. The
school house, court house and in fact all
public and private buildings should be
decorated on Dominion Day.
Only three short weeks to get in shape
for the grand celebration. Some public I
spirited individuals are doing two men's!
work in the preparatory operations nece: -)

Day. Everyone do a little and all pull
together, in that way a whole pile can 1 e
accomplished.
Fireworks and balloon business will 1 e
omitted on account. of the railway being
about fort3* miles shy of Princeton. But
there can be a rousing salute fired at sunrise and sunset.
What's the matter with the town bell ?
Everybody seems to be afraid of it. It
is there to be rung for all legitimate tur-
poses, such as public, committee and religious meetings, weddings, demonstrations, charivaris, serenades, etc. Wake
up! Ring it moderately and continuously, then it will not interfere with the
code of fire signals.
son is in a dilemma, as he is anxious to
take in the sports here on the ist and 2nd
of July, and, of course, he could not be
absent from his daughter's wedding. In
his younger days-—he is now 70—he could
jump onto his horse and ride to Chilli-
wack over the Hope mountains,, where
the wedding will be, in a'dav and a half,,
a matter of a hundred miles or so. He
thinks the wedding may stand for a day
or two which would enable him to meet
old tillicums from all over the country
at the Dominion Day sports.

Bobbie Stevenson, Frank Sutton, B.A..
and another man whose name could not
be learned, are hard at work mining near
D'Arcy mountain. The line of the V.,
V. & E. cuts into Mr. Stevenson's property and it is his ambition to have the
first car of high £rade ore shipped when
the railway is complete to Princeton.
The very air we breathe is surcharged
these days with rumors of war, of government dissolutions, of elections and
last but not least, of weddings. The latter haye the greatest local interest-and
as there are to be three or four, all of
whom are popular and well known couples, showers of rice, old shoes and congratulations will be the program.
INVITING TO INVESTORS.
The United Empire mine on One-Mile
has been developed up to that stage
which warrants the owners to form, a
company and offer stock to the public
This mine is so favorably located for shipping purposes that of the two projected
railway lines to Princeton short spurs in
any case wi'l be sufficient to tap the ore
dump. The United Empire appeals to
that class of investor who desires some-,
thing more than a mere.prospect and who
demands businesslike management. It
has been assayed from 'top to bottom,.*'

to six dollars and at depth as high.'its

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY
Work of Geologists Still Unpublished—Camp Hedley
and Tulameen.
Chas. Camsell, chief of a party sent out
by'the Geological Department, Ottawa,
was in Princeton Monday. This is his
third season in the Similkameen. Unfortunately his work has not been published, except in summary reports, and
the public, mining people in particular,
are losers of valuable information for
that length of time. A map of the Roche
River-Copper Mountain district is also
much delayed. One of the chief values
of mineral or geological research is in%
keeping the public informed of results.
But the information must be fresh and
up to-date. The Minister of Mines and
the Chief of the Geological Department
Mr. Low, it is well known, are not above
taking a hint. The Similkameen needs
to be known promptly of its vast resources—lack of this information is a
great hindrance to progress.
Mr, Camsell will be in Camp Hedley
an unfinished work of last year, after
which he will go to the Granite Creek-
Tulameen district. This section is rich
in mineralogical and palseontological
deposits. Here many assays have revealed
platinum in place, but not in quantity to
be of commercial importance. ' Placer
platinum is now mined at Granite Creek

A GENERAL BANKING BUSINESS  TRANSACTED
COMMERCIAL AN- FARMERS' PAPER DISCOUNTED1
It has been urged  over and over
again   that    roads   to  the  mining
camps in   Princeton  district  are of
utmost   importance if progress and
development are  to be maintained.
•Copper. Mountain,   Roche   River,
JSTorth Fork of Granite Creek, Upper Tulameen  and Bear Creek are
■either wholly without  roads, or, as
as the  case with   Bear   Creek   and
Copper   Mountain    need, improvement.    The  existing  road to Copper   Mountain   is   indeed a   " hard
road" and   no  doubt  was only intended as  a  makeshift.    It is generally conceded that  a better grade
and more direct route would be obtained- if the  road  from   Ashnola
were  continued   up the Mountain.
This, of course,   would call for the
building  of a  short  bridge across
the Similkameen River at Ashnola.
Taking into consideration the great
area of   mineral   ground   and   the
large number  of claims owned the
expense of connecting Ashnola with
the Mountain is well warranted and
an  effort should   be   immediately
made  to have  construction begun
this summer.
Regarding... .the improvement of
streets in unincorporated towns like
Princeton by the Government it has
been often advocated in tbe Star
that a large proportion, if not all,
the taxes should be spent where
they are collected. For thus boldly
declaring a sound principle this
paper has been denounced by light-
we:ght politicians. As one champion put it: "Whoever heard tell
" of a government spending money
" in improving the streets of a
"town-; it's absurd." D.G.Sutherland, the new road supervisor to
replace Mr. Stephenson, resigned,
has made a definite statement in
reference to grading streets in Ash-
croft, a town four times the size of
Princeton, and which should have
been incorporated long ago. If the
statement is applicable to Ashcroft
it is doubly so to Princeton, which,
returns a large mineral revenue to
the government, and has never had
the advantage of railroad transportation as.Ashcroft has. Mr. Sutherland sa}'s :

About a month ago some talk of
I building a road from Granite Creek
camp to the North Fork coal mines
was heard, but the parties were
evidently not sincere as it ended in
talk.     The  mines  are there,   the
" It is tip to   the citizens of Ashcroft to petition the Chief Commissioner    of   Public   Works   if they
want   their  streets  graded and put
in  proper  repair.    There  is every
reason  to   believe  that   Ashcroft's
streets would   be   regraded   if the
proper steps were immediately tak-
eu   to that  end.    The   matter lies
with tbe   Department    of   Public
Works, who would, no doubt, refer
the  matter  to  me  and I certainly
would recommend that  the  neces-
sar}7  work  be  done, as the streets
are in bad shape."    Come this way
Mr. Supervisor  and see how much
grading has  been  done on Princeton's streets.     Compare Princeton
with the  government's affectionate
treatment    of   Hedley,   Penticton,
and other places.    Who will move
on the petition in Princeton ?

It is not a matter of much importance how the provincial elections go, so far as they influence
the voting in a Dominion campaign. For many reasons it is best
that the Dominion and provincial
governments should be separated
politically and thus reduce the
chances of unholy alliances.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
THAT TOWEL.
When I think of the towel,
The old-fashioned towel,
That used to hang up by the printing-
[house door,
I think that nobody
In these days o' shoddy
Can hammer iron to wear as it wore.
The tramp, who abused it,
The devil, who used it,
The make-up and  foreman, the editor
[poor man.
Each rubbed some grime off
While tbey put a heap on.
In, over, and under,
'Twas blacker than thunder, j
'Twas  harder than poverty, rougher
[than sin ;
From the roller suspended,
It never was bended,
And it flapped on the door like a banner
[of tin.
It grew thicker and rougher,
Harderand tougher,
And daily put on an inkier hue,
Till one windy morning,
Without any warning,
It fell on the floor and was broken in two.
