Mining is the leading industry of the Similkameen arid is capable of vast development, not a tenth of it feeing, as yet, prospected—It
is the Prospector's Paradise, easy of access and virtually unlimited in area—Manufacturing facilities are excellent—Healthy climate.'

TBE TIE THAT BINDS
Railroad Ties  and Steel Rails
Arrive, Completing Road
Thus Far.
The Universal Question: When will
Construction Proceed on Its
Westward Way.
While the rail head has not reached
Princeton station it is near enough to
say that the town is now linked by two
inseparable bands of steel with the rest
of the world. The tracklayers were delayed with shortages of material but
they forged ahead with such good effect
that steel is now within two or three
minutes' walk of the center of town.
The spur to the V F.M. Co's coal mine
will not be finished for about two weeks
although the work is being pushed with
all speed.
Ballasting and surfacing is being carried on with all the help available and it
looks encouraging for regular train service about the first of December. In any
case the new order of communication
and train regulations, mail and telegraph
service should be in operation before
the new year.
There are rumors that construction
^jill be continued westward to the coast
as soon as the line is finished to this point.
There is nothing to verify or corroborate
any of these reports. Chief Engineer
Hogeland was here recently, hut he made
no statement, only a suggestion that the
workmen would be reengaged on new
contracts.
WHIPSAW NOTES—CAMP LOOKS
GOOD TO ALL.
Dick Fitzgerald brought down some
very fine samples of ore from the Molly
Reilly, which he recently located on the
Whipsaw. Ledge matter six feet wide
contains what is, in the absence of assay,
a very high percentage of the richer
minerals. 'Fitz' has every reason to be
elated with his prospects and being a
miner of many years' experience adds
to his opinion authoritative weight. He
speaks very highly of other properties
in the, camp and foresees the day when
Whipsaw will be a shipper second to
none if capital and the railway people
■will do their shares, now that the prospectors are doing theirs.
Knight & Day are building a cabin
and getting timbers on the ground for the
tunnel they will run this wiDter.
Jack Crowley is the most recent locator
in Whipsaw. Many years ago he learned
the ABC of mining and prospecting and
never saw anything that looked better
beginning at the grass roots and running
high in silver, lead, zinc and other values.
WAITING FOR PRINCETON
COAL,
Coal from the west may soon be available at Grand Forks if reasonable freight
rates are obtainable. Mines at Princeton
will be ready to ship on the first train
out of that town ; the steel should reach
there this week on the Great Northern
and regular traffic begin before the end
of this month. Tbe haul from Princeton
to Grand Forks is only 120 miles, so that
coal should be laid down here cheaper
tban from any other point.—Grand Forks
Gazette.
REACHING OUT FOR FOREIGN
TRADE.
The Department of Trade and Commerce, Ottawa, has issued a circular asking for the names of exporters from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, with a detailed
list of the goods they are in a position to
sell in foreign countries. When this information is received tlie Department
will furnish the Canadian Trade Commissioners in the various parts of the world
with the same information. This inform
ation will be available at once in six
offices in the United Kingdom, one in
France, two iu South Africa, one in Mexico, one in the West Indies, two in Australia, one in China, one in Japan, one in
Holland and one in Newfoundland. The
Department is to be heartily commended
for thus endeavoring to increase the export trade of Canada and build up a
large manufacturing .business. Effort
along this line will do more to develop
trade than all the tariff tinkering of meddlesome politicians. If Canada wants to
do increased business with other nations
she must do some 'drumming.'
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
H. Massonat, watchmaker and jeweller,

Star has felt the pinch of sickness this
week, being unable to procure compositors. Advertisements are held over in
two instances for that reason, which inli-
mation it is hoped, will be kindly accepted,
A Very pretty bouquet of flowers from
the garden of Mrs. W. H. Hagerman,
One-Mile, is a flattering testimony of the
favorable climatic conditions there. It
also indicates that where flowers grow in
such health and vigor, fruit may be expected to grow to perfection.
, The statement made in last issue of this
•paper that W. H. Holmes of Granite
Creek had been asked to put the North
Fork coal premises in shape for mining
operations was incorrect, and one which
Star assumes full blame for.
Gordon Murdoch completed the Ashnola pack brirtge last week, which now
affords easy access to Copper mountain.
He is now having the bridges over the
Tulameen and Similkameen painted and
the wood and iron work made snug and
taut.
J. R. Campbell, proprietor of the City
drug store, expects to leave shortly on
a business trip to the coast, to be absent
about two weeks. In his absence Geddes
Lyall will be in chaage.

Curry Schisler writes from Lexington
Heights Hospital, Buffalo, N.Y., stating
that he had underwent what promised to
be a successful surgical operation. Mr,
and Mrs Schisler went east some weeks
ago for this purpose and many friends
will rejoice at the encouraging words.
Bill Martin is getting into 'harness'
again after suffering from dysenteric and
other troubles. May his shadow ever
increase until he is himself again, so say
we all.
The shooting season is now on. When
a man points a guu at you knock him
down. Don't stop to look if it is loaded,
but knock him down and don't be at all
particular what you do it with. If there
is a coroner's inquest let it be over the
other man, he won't be missed.—Greenwood Ledge.
John Houston, late owner of the Prince
Rupert Empire, has located at Fort
George. John has got to be on the frontier, where frills are scarce and everyone
makes his own code of civilization. '
Three Victoria bank clerks have gone
wrong as the result of investing too
incautiously on the races.
Vancouver building permits for September last reached the grand total of

County court last Saturday was held

large number of debt cases were heard.
One touch of sickness makes the whole
world akin. Princeton has her sisters of
mercy and charity whose deeds must be
recorded somewhere on the great scroll
to be unfolded some dav.
PROJECTED HOSPITAL MAKES
PROGRESS.
The movement to secuie a public hospital for Princeton is meeting with- every
encouragement as far as the work of collecting data and proffered help are concerned. It is the aim of the committee
to lay a concise scheme before the public
at an early date. Meantime, let every
one help the cause of suffering humanity
by supporting the project in word, or
wh'atis better, in generous deed.

and Johnson went over the proposed
route of the spur to connect with the
V.,V. & E. from the mine. They also
laid ont the preliminary work, which
must of necessity be done, before the
mine can be put in operation. Mr. Parrish informed your correspondent that he

this eagle indicate clearing operations ?

NEW SMELTING PROCESS.
If a new process of smelting ore,
which was exhibited publicly a few
weeks ago proves successful commercially, as it appeared to be at
the demonstration, it will revolutionize the mining industry of the
world, is the opinion of several
mining men who saw it.
The inventor is A. W. Catton of
West Seattle, who has spent ten
years in studying and improving
the process. The demonstration
.. tbok place at a small smelter erected
for the purpose on the west side of
the bay, by the Gold Creek Mining
and Smelting, which owns the pat-
" ent to the process.
Copper ore was  dumped into the
top of the furnace, and half an hour
later  was   taken   out  in what the
inventor  asserts  is  a much purer
form than  that  in which it comes
from any other smelter in the country.    The smelting is done by what
is    called   a  hydro-oxygen-carbon
process.    Tbe beat, instead of being
generated  by   coke  and  charcoal,
which are expensive as fuel, is made
by the union of crude oil with steam
and air, producing a temperature of
5200 degrees Fahrenheit,  or twice
that  in an ordinary  smelter.    The
heat comes   in   from,   the  top and
passes over  the  heap of ore in onel
-end of the furnace  and . then  over |
another pile in the other end.    It-is
in the utilization of the heat wasted
in  smelting  the  ore, in roasting it
at the other end, where much of the
economy  of the  process  is said to
be."
According to Catton, 90 per cent,
of the valuable mineral of this
country cannot be touched because
of the expense of handling it by
the present process of smelting.
One drawback of the process in use
is that only high grade ore can be
handled profitably by it. Besides
tbe cost of erecting a smelter runs
from $100,000 to $5,200,000.
As compared to this, one of the
new smelters, with a capacity of
50 tons, can be erected for $16,000
All the material required for its
construction can be hanled to the
most inaccessible mine without
mueh cost, and be erected on the
spot.—Grand Forks Sun.

afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
