PRINCETON THE COAL
March of the Graders Up the
Valley Lessens Gap in
theV.,V.&E.
Contract Let to Swedes, Best Railroad
Builders in the World—No
More Tardiness.',
Three miles of grading have been contracted for on the V.,V. & E below Allison and rock and dirt will begin to fly as
soon as camp equipment and construe
tion implements can be hauled on the
ground. A party of Swedes, (whose
names could not be spelled and pronounced correctly) have got the contract.
Laborers are here waiting for this work
to start.
Lof and Carlson have made such good
progress with their right-of-way clearing
contract that they will finish shortly. In
town they have cleared a belt 300 feet
wide by a 1 4 mile long for yard and station purposes.
The^ line from Allison to Princeton is
being negotiated for grading contract.
By reference to advertisement in the
Star this issue it will be observed that the
V.,V. & E. is appl>ing for permission to
build a spur line to the Vermilion Forks
Co's coal mine. This is a necessary legal
step, but its ultimate significance is that
Princeton will be a great coal producing
and shipping centre as soon as the tails
are la'd.
Engineer Kennedy is expected in town
any day to layout a wye to be used for
car and locomotive turning purposes
This, may be taken to indicate that
Princeton will be the end of a divisional
section, with roundhouse, machine and
repair shops, extensive yardage, boarding houses and junction station.
It is reported on good authority that
tracklaying will begin westward from
Keiemeos on June 15th. The grade is
nearly complete to Hedley and is well
out of the way of the steel gang. Two
bridges across the Similkameen will
cause some unimportant delays. As
things now look along the line next
New Year's eve the town bell may be
rung in hearty welcome to the first locomotive. Omnia mutantur, nos et muta-
n:ur in   illis:   Skookum   tumtum  til 11 -
CUIUS.
The C.P.R. has started surveying up
the Coldwater which is part of its route,
via Tulameen to Princeton.
Angus Lamont, one of the pioneers of
Cariboo and now. resident at Ashnola, is
a sufferer this spring from rheumatism.
He has a host of friends all over the
country who wish him complete and
speedy recovery.
SAWMILL DEAL IS ON
Lumber Being Manufactured
for Present Demand
of Builders.
Similkameen Lumber Company Turns
Out Large Quantity and
Good Quality.
The Similkameen Lumber Co., under
the energetic management of J. F. Wad-:
dell, has been cutting and dressing large
quantities of lumber this spring. The
capacious shed of the company in town
is rapidly filling with building lumber of
fine quality. The mill is located nearly
two miles from town and was until recently owned and operated by the A. E.
Howse Co. Mr. Waddell has put the
mill in thorough repair and employs a
big gang of men in the manufacture of
yellow pine lumber which is being
stocked in Princeton for present and
future demand.
Princeton is luckily situated for the
location of a large saw mill, as it has the
run of two rivers to bring logs to it. A
large area of country could be reached
by loggers who would have excellent
waterways to all timbered sections if
there were a demand for the product.
There is a fine mill site in the suburbs'of
Princeton and handy to the railroad for
shipping purposes.
Quiet reports are in circulation that
a large impending deal only awaits the
arrival of the principals to take stock of
the turnover when two or three of the
local sawmills and timber holdings will
be merged into a large company concern.
It is said that a large, modern mill will
be erected in the place of the small
" whittlededigs" that are now doing service as sawmills. There is a splendid
opening for a large, first class sawmill
at Princeton, the supply 'torn which
would find a ready local consumption
throughout the Similkameen district.
GOING TO EUROPE.
Intent on seeing the Old World and in
need of a well earned holiday Mr. and
Mrs. A. E. Howse leave Nicola early in
June on an extended tour of Britain and
the Continent. This year affords unusual attractions at home and abroad for
travellers. The Tercentenary at Quebec
which in spectacular effect is expected to
eclipse anything cf the kind ever attempted, the Olympic games at London,
besides the staple attractions of gay Paris
and Monte Carlo will afford a round of
pleasure and interest for New World
visitors. Mr. and Mrs. Howse will be
absent about six months. The staff of
the Star join with numerous friends in
wishing them " bon voyage."
GRANITE CREEK GOLD
Old Camp Scene of Renewed
Life and Activity and
Better Days.
Modern Goldhunters Bring Machinery
to Save Gold and Platinum
from Creek.
A first shipment of machinery for the
Adams-Weeks Platinum and Gold Dredging Co. was delivered at Granite Creek
last Friday and is now being placed in
position. As fast as men can place the
material for the dredger there will be no
cessation of work in its construction. In
about a fortnight it is expected the first
shovelful of placer will be raised from
the virgin ground at Granite Creek, two
or three hundred yards from its mouth.
At this point the bed rock dips sharply
making the ground unworkable for hand-
rockers or other process than high powered machinery.
It has long been predicted by old time
placermen on the creek that rich deposits
of gold and platinum would be found in
this particular basin below the creek bed.
There are similar 'pockets' in the rivers
and creeks of this whole district which
can only be worked by machinery. There
are also bench and bar diggings in this
section which will yield good pay when
worked on a large scale.
Messrs. Adams and Weeks are practical
men with scientific training, the latter
being the inventor and patentee of the
machine now . being erected and which
has been successfully operated in other
places. Mr. Adams is an engineer by
profession and first learned of the gold-
platinum deposits on Granite creek while
timber hunting last summer. As is
common with frail humanity in the presence of gold Mr. Adams felt its stimulating influence and he vowed within
himself to annex some of it. The result
of that inward resolve is the machinery
at Granite Creek today. It represents
the brains, energy, push and capital of
these enterprising gentlemen.
If the dredge is as successful as everybody wishes it to be Messrs. Adams and
Weeks would soon have a dozen of them
at work. Meanwhile, operations will be
noted with much interest by the public.
Both gentlemen are from Sookane,which
fact illustrates how much nearer than
coast cities it is in distance as well as in
business 'touch' to Princeton district.
KEREMEOS SPORTS.
Victoria Day, May 25th, next Monday,
will be celebrated in Keremeos with
sports, races and ball. While the stakes
for horse races are not large ($25 is the
highest) there are a lot of events.
THE MINING WORLD
Boundary Mineral Resources
to be Advertised by
Board Trade.
Assays from United Empire Run to
Nearly $20-Big Tunnel
in Boundary.
Greenwood's board of trade is preparing a pamphlet on the mineral resources
of the Boundary. Ten thousand copies
will be printed and distributed—an eye-
opener for the Princeton board.
A syndicate of Boston capitalists recently bought the dredger of the Iowa
& Lillooet Gold Dredging Co. with which
to make a thorough test of the gravels of
the Fraser River at Lillooet. If the gold
is there in paying quantities a larger
dredge wili be built.
Chas. Newman, an old timer of the
Boundary and Camp McKinney, has left
for Hazelton.
A 60-foot vein of coal 'is reported to
have been struck on the North Fork
of Granite Creek. Mining will be done
by tunnel which can be made self draining.
The Greenwood-Phoenix Tunnel Co.
has been organized with a capital of five
million dollars. It will tap at great
depth a dozen mining properties.
Leo McMullen, shift boss on the North
Fork coal mines, was in town Sunday,
He has about twenty men at work.
The United Empire has had 12 different assays made of its ore which averaged nearly {20 per ton. It is well situ
ated f~r shipping and will, no doubt, be
a large contributor to the tonnage of the
railway.
The Guggenheims are putting on a
force of several hundred men on their
placer diggings in the Yukon.
British Columbia has produced over
#100,000,000 in  gold ; $6,000,000 in 1907.
The Princeton coal measures are estimated to contain over 800,000,000 tons of
good coal.
Canada has produced $50,000,000 worth
of nickel—the Sudbury mines are down
1200 feet.
GONE TO HIS REWARD.
Hugh Campbell recently received the-
sad news of the death of his nephew,.
Campbell Macpherson, at Cannes.France,.
whither he had gone in search of health.
The St. John's News devotes three columns to a highly eulogistic obituary of
Mr. Macpherson, who was held in verv
high esteem by his fellow citizens generally. Mr. Campbell, who is now.72
years of age, feels his loss very keenly,
in which he will have the sympathy of
many friends here.

ELECTRIC AND 'COPPER AGE.
• ■ As the,19th century was the Age
of Steel so. the 20th is the Age of
Electricity ah'd Copper. Without
copper electricity would be impossible as an economic manufacturing
or motive power. • So far, the inventive ^genius 6f?rDa'n'has riot been
able to discover a more economical
power thanwater,~and it is by har-;
: nessing waterfalls aria swift running
watercourses "that electricity has
eclipsed steam /or cheapness, handi:
uess, cleanliness and adaptability
to a much wider field of usefulness.
'Water .power -for  generating..eiec-;
■ ttficity and poking coal for extracting copper from our ores are in
plentiful supply, throughout ...the.
Similkameen. Within a..,yfew,ijnjl.es.
of Princeton nature has generously*
.supplied water and falls ror'Jfuimeas-
, urable power ; .even the'Tiyers'with'
•an average falljof 35,;;fe,et. to the
mile'are capable of; generating vast
■electric energy. Having-igreat
dikes  of   copper  ores ' (also iron),
■coke to smelt with andiAliuridant
water   power   for   generating   elec-
;tricity, the requisites for large
metal manufacturing industries  lie
:.side by side. Was ever a mining
camp so ' favorably situated as
Princeton? ,,,
For the last six decades of the
19th century, says the Copper
Handbook, for 1906,"'"published ly
Horace J. Stevens, of' Houghton,'
Michigan'; the production of the
leading metals increased:.at the-rate
of,alniost exactly. 6*4- per eeni.t/,'
compounded yearly, but in the last
decade of the century copper-left
the other metals behind, and for
fifteen years past the average ratio
of increase in copper production
has been 8 per cent., compounded
yearly.
This difference of only one and
one half per cent, in the ratio of
yearly increase, may seem small,
but the cumulative results are surprising, and at the end of 15 years
have run into hundreds of millions
■of dollars. In i88i,.a quarter cer-
tury past, the world's production of
■copper was 163,000 long tons,
worth an average of 18 cents per
pound, giving a total value of
$65,000,000, in round figures, while
at the. present moment the copper
mines of the world are producing
at the rate of nearly 800,000 tors
per annum, worth one million dollars for every day in the year, or at
the rate of $365,000,000 for 1906—
an increase of almost five fold in
the world's copper bill in a quarter
of a century.
With electricity finding new us.es
daily and with a rapid extension of
electric energy_£pr power, traction,
and many other employments, there
is small hope that this poor old
world will be able to curtail its copper bill to any important extent,
and every reason to believe that the
world's "copper ten years from now
will cost considerably' rroreMhan
the world's iron and steel cost ten
years ago. To meet the increased
deteand aud output- of copper new
mineral fields must he opened up
with*their associated industries of
smelting and coke making. In all
these particulars Priffifeton and surrounding district can supply all the
requirements, vth'e' only thing to be
dOrffe'.is'to ..make it known to capitalists, . mining men and investors
generally. ..    ;.
FOREST FIRE PROTECTION.
Fife protection is now-a-days regarded*-as one of the necessary1;
things in any wide awake town and
is a considerable item in the annual
expentffftfre. "Protection of. forests
from fire is gradually coming to be"
recognized _. as.,, an expenditure jtisf
as necessary and as profitable on the'
part of the'Provincial and Federal
governments 'which control a very,
great h proportion of our fdr&sts;-
The vast losses which have.occurred'
tnrough forest-fires are. awakening
Dominion ■ and ; Provincial- authorities to" the "Necessity of taking action
to stay the annual destruction of
forests, by fire. In B.C. a law is on
the statute 'books which penalizes
the neglect of fires set out by pampers a-ffid'others from isl May to September.' A system of fire patrol is
foun,d very useful in Ontario and
Qtfebec in putting out incipient
fires and the B.C. government will,
no doubt, also provide for a patrol
on sim'il'ar "lines. Timber is too
scarce and too valuable to allow of
its needless destruction.
;i; NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Some" enthusiasts advocate government ownership of all public
utilities. They have not had opportunity to note the management
of the government-owned telephone
line in the Similkameen or they
would change their, minds.
I Run at a dead loss to the country and in a spirit of favoritism,
the telephone line affords an apt
illustration of the deadening effect
a party heeler or two can "exercise
on what might otherwise be a useful and profitable public institution.
Private ownership of the telephone line would "fire" an official
so quickly that his feet would-glide
from under him if he 'discriminated' with customers. When it is
near election time 'everything goes'
in government 'outside' employ.
