 Princeton Coal, high thermal qualities,'_10w waste.

COAL, ORE AND PLACER MINING N^DCAPITAL TO WORK
_£_
MINES AND MINING
Urgent Appeal to  Place Ore
Samples on Exhibition
at Coast.
Princeton Coal is Sure of Large Demand When Railways are.
Hauling Through.
Editor Star—Sir : Kindly give space
to a matter of importance to your community The Vancouver exhibition has
closed with the best display of ores ever
gathered in the province for public inspection and like purpose. Even with
257 distinct ore exhibits some-important
mining centers were not represented,
Priuceton among the number. That was
an error on the part of your people.
If they could have listened to the many
inquiries about your ores and thg.de.vel-
opmeut going on in your district they
would have been convinced of the mistake in allowing the exhibition to pass
without a display. Offers of free transportation were made and if the people
themselves cannot see the importance of
interesting investors and capital, who
can ? Our visitors came from all parts of
the world. As an example of the inter
est shown let us take the case of the
Nickel Plate ore at Hedley, donated for
the exhibit three years ago, by manager
G P. Jones of the Hedley Gold Mines
Co. Samples of this ore have been given
on request to Dublin university, a pri
vate collection in London, four collec1
tions of 30 samples for high schools, and
numerous other requests. I was able to-
supply specimens of coal from Coalmont,
(never had sample of Princeton coal, excepting a sruairiample of my own), samples of diamond rock have been given
away and Tulameen given the credit.
Let us change this state of things and
give your section the prominence it deserves and needs Will you not allow
your office to be used for the reception of
samples to be turned over for a permanent exhibit, or could the board of trade
spare a little of its time and attention to
this matter ? The formation of an association is being discussed which will unite
miners, prospectors and owners in a pub
licity campaign of our natural resources.
An investor can make no mistake if he
wants mines, timber or lands in B.C.
Yours truly, H B. Brown, director of
mineral exhibit.
The prodnction of coal for 1911 by ttie
Princeton Coal & Land Co. was 23,396
tons as against 11,868 tons for 1910, an
increase of 11,528 tons for 1911. This
mine is now receiving an increase of
orders for fall and winter trade.
The completion of the Kettle Valley
railway from Okanagan district to Princeton is anxiously looked forward to by the
coal consumers of the Okanagan. At
present they are obliged to use a very
iQuL_.bituminous coal unsuitable for do
mestic purposes and the price is exorbitant, from $8' to $9 per ton. Princeton
coal will command the Okanagan trade
because of its clean and superior heating
qualities, besides the hahling distance
will be only about 50 miles.
The Princetou Coal & Lan(l Co. employs all white labor, numbering 67. »
The   Nicola  Valley  Coal &  Coke Co.
of Middlesboro employs 487 whites.
' Th^ColumblaCoal & Coke Co. of Coalmont employs 80 men, developing.
Sam Spencer returned to town yesterday after spending most of the summer
at his. mine . on the Whipsaw, the showings being most encouraging. He was
accompanied by Mrs. Spencer.
W. .C Fry, the well, known placer
mining man, of Vancouver, was in town
iasfevfceek..    _it«»iu. i s.    r     -»_-___~»- .
W. B Dornberg came down from Leadville lasfMonday and repoi ts aCttve mining on the Treasure Mountain. With
others at Leadville Mr. Dornbeig is anx
iou.s to have a road built to that new
and thrivine camp so that immediate
shipmen'.s of*the 100-dollar ore may begin when" completed. On another p..ge
will be found an advertisement calling
for tenders for a tunnel.
Chas. Camsell, Dominion geologist,
was in town Monday after, visiting Tulameen. He went to Hedley, going from
there to Victoria.
F. Mclutosh, mining man of Vancouver is in town.
J. D. MacDonald, hydraulic engineer,
of Seattle, was in town this week.
E. E. Emmons, of Vancouver, arrived
last Saturday.
LEADVILLE LEADS.
.Leadville, B.C , Aug 26.—Everything
in the mining line is encouraging.. As
clean galena as any man ever saw is now
showing at the Treasure Mountain mine.
There are about two feet of first class ore,
five of second grade _nd seven of lower
quality iu the tunnel. The appearance
of the property withstands the closest
scrntiny of experts.
Besides the galena leads in this locality
there are some dikes carrying copper,
gold and silver values. One lead is over
100 feet wide, lying between diorite walls
and carrying pay ore.
W. B. Dornberg has had five or six
men and as many horses dragging T rails
from Tulameen to his camp.
Guthrie & Co , V.V. & E. contractors,
will soon have men at'work.
Lacrosse will be the top attraction at
Hedley on Labor Day, no less than three
teams' competing. --Princeton will be
there, and that means high class lacrosse
for thej spectators.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Road Construction Going on
at Good Pace in Vicinity
and District.
Damp and Chilly   Weather Retards
Haymakers, Harvesters, but
Small Damage.
Mrs. C. L. Cummings leaves shortly
to join her husband who is working at
his trade in Nelson.
On the 13th inst. at Greenwood, Mrs.
Graliam, mother of Mrs. W. Garrison of
Princeton, passed away. The deceased
had been a sufferer from cancer of the
stomach, which medical skill failed tp
relieve. The sympathy of the whole
community goes out to the bereaved
ones.
, Mrs. Wilms returned from a pleasant
visit to Keremeos last week, Miss Wilms
remaining with" her girl friend ehjoying
the ozone peculiar to the peach belt.
. Divisional Superintendent Graham pf
tjie C.P R. passed through Princeton last
Monday on his way over the mountain
trail to Hope. His presence here gaye
rise to preposterous rumors, one of which
was that a contract would be let on the
Kettle Valley west of Princeton at once,
and another that a deadly struggle be
tween the Great, Northern and C.P.R.
was on and would result in both roads
being built on time.
Constable McGuffie has been transferred
to Keremeos and H. C. Williams of Vic
toria, will take his place in Greenwood.
Billy O'Brien, the celebrated lacrosse
player, having played on such crack
teams as the Shamrocks of Montreal, the
Capitals of Ottawa, and the Victoria and
Vancouver clubs, also a member of the
Princeton team, left last week for the
coast, where he will reside with his
fj&milyt
Frank Chitty, a member of the Star's
operating staff, was suddenly attacked
last Friday with" what is termed 'by the
doctors as appendicitis, and left for home
at Mols. n.'Wash. He is an expert pressman and the vacancy thus caused will be
hard to fill. Meantime if there is a
'printer around-who is not overwhelmed
with 'dough'the 'old man' would be glad
to look into his collar y}4 hours daily.
No dead line.
Died—On the 20th inst, the baby
daughter of Mr. "and Mrs. D. M. French.
Star joins with friends in expressing sincere sympathy, with the sorrowing ones.
J D. Scott is a recent visitor to Princeton, coming from England, where his
profession as actor-comedian commanded
large remuneration. Mr. Scatt may locate here. K
MUCH ROAD CONSTRUCTION.
H. A. Turner, road superintendent, was
in this vicinity last week inspecting the
work already done this year and laying
But new-grading and sidewalks. In line
with the policy of the government much
of the new road making was undertaken
with a view to Assist the development «_f
mine§^"and link up.the agricultural sections. . Copper mountain road has had a
lot of improvements, necessary for the
heavy traffic to Voigt camp. The transprovincial. trunk" road is making good
progress and this, with the branches to
be built, will give employment to many
men for two or three years. To Summit
{Jajnp, or 'Leadville,' the proposed new
name, a road will be started this fall and
completed at. the earliest possible time,
having regard to v^eather conditions in
the high altitudes traversed. No one
but an incurable pessimist could fail to
appreciate the large amount of road
work done and. the more thau apparent
intention of the government to give communication to mining camps especially.
ON WITH THE DANCE
Next-Friday evening the Princeton and
District band will give another of their
popular dances, thef proceeds of which
will be applied to the maintenance of
this valuable adjunct of the town. It is
incnmbent on every resident of the town
and district to patronize the band, giving
it not only a sentimental support but the
real earnest of good intentions to be
found in the purchase of a ticket. The
band is making fine progress and Prof.
Gibson has reason to be proud of the
talented members who have responded to
his excellent training and ability. The
music for the dance will be given by
J. O. Coulthard's select 4 piece orchestra.
Tickets $1, ladies free.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A gentleman who travels much
in the province says he heard outside of the town from those who
formerly resided here that Princeton is in bad moral condition. It
is hard to conceive of a mOre unjust, untruthful aspersion in the
light of fact and statistics. Some
twenty-five or thirty years' experience in western mining camps and
frontier towns warrants the statement that Princeton has less of
crime, vice, and lawlessness than
any other place visited. It is a
model town in many respects with
as clean and respectable population
as can be found in any town of its
size in tbe old country or back east.
It is probable some .disappointed
person or persons, as a sort of revenge for their failure, attempt to
bring the town into disrepute. It
is a well known fact that some individuals never fail to disparage the
town or city they last graced with
their excellent presence. Like the
chronic knocker these individuals
carry no weight and it is only to
warn the stranger or unsuspecting
one that any denial is here made.
All this talk of war and naval
construction is the effusive vapor
ings of the military mad and the
politician patriot. Jingoism and
flag-flapping are the tactics used in
behalf of the big armament contractors and provisioners. How
much better it would be if the
newspapers and statesmen would
advocate- disarmament and universal peace and free trade. This is
a goal worth attaining, instead of
pursuing a policy of unrest and
strife, spending the money and life
of the nation for that which tends
toward poverty and ruin. It is possible to frame international law governing the conduct of nations just
as civil law governs the conduct of
individuals toward each other. Is
there a statesman or an editor of
note who has the courage to take
up the question of disarmament
and help to end the senseless craze
tor battleships and other death
dealing machines?
Many suggestions for legislative
action to overcome the decreasing
birth rate due to barrenness and
race suicide are being made by anthropologists. Germans suggest a
plurality, of wives and other countries will experiment with the bonus
system as a means of preserving the
race from decimation. The more
licentious and wicked a nation is,
a corresponding decrease of popula
tion follows, until as is observed in
the midnight of the dark middle
centuries some European races were
well nigh obliterated by foul disease. The more prolific races are
those of predominating moral habits. Star may be pardoned if it
suggests to those statesmen worrying over the procreative problem
that the remedy lies not in the
beastly bonus but in more stringent
enforcement of the laws affecting
purity and good morals. Houses
of shame winked at by the mere
empty formality of statute poison
the innocent with the exhaling
odor of their presence. When governments enforce tie observance of
laws dealing with all vice there will
be no necessity for pampering a
condition to increase population.
This is the age of injection. A
few years ago it was ejection, the
remedies for most complaints being
purgatives, emetics and bleeding.
Now the medicine men inject serum,
toxin, vaccine, rattlesnake juice,
tear of bat, sleeping and waking
dopes, what not. The divine remedy for all ills is the same yester
day, today and forever, and never
fiils when faithfully administered.
FEAR IS BANEFUL TEACHING.
Editor Star—Sir : In the mediasval
ages, commonly known as the 'dark ages,'
liberty of thought was not permitted.
History tells us of the inhuman itBstrvf'
ments of torture invented for the persecution of those who refused to believe as
the churches commanded. We, who live
in the 20th century, shudder when reading of the crimes committed during that
period in the name lar. religion.
How much better are we than the people of those days? True, we would not
permit the use of the thumbscrew or faggot, much less the rack or Spanish donkey. But the spirit which prompted the
use of those tortures then still exists
among us, and given the opportunity
would be used again.
Attention is turned to torturing the
mind when the law prohibits torturing
the flesh.
- The extracts from the Bible which appeared in your issue of the 7th is an illustration ot the means employed. I am
sorry to see such teachings. Surely the
gentlemen, whose signatures are at the
bottom of the extracts can find belter
teachings in the book.
The teachings are not Christ's, nor are
they   the   inspiration   of   a  God      You
can't make  anyone  love you by making
them fear you.
Yours truly,
Jno. Nathan.

LOVE NEVER FAILS.
I've learned as days have passed me,
Fretting never lifts the load,
And that worry, flurry, hurry,
Never smooths an irksome road.
For you know that—somehow, always,
Chains uufetter, ways are made:
When we work and wait with patience,
Under all the cross that's laid.
He who waters meadow lilies,
With the dtw from heaven above;
He who feeds the little sparrows,
When in need for food they cry;
Neither fails to help his children,
In all things both great and small;
For in love he ever listens.
To our faintest far off call.

The combined defalcations of Arthur
Richmond and Roland Harris, twoyonng
Toronto bank clerks now under arrest for
embezzlement will, it is estimated, approximate #50,000. Most of the money
went to the bookmakers and gamblers at
various race tracks, the greater part being
j lost at Dufferin park and Woodbine.
Harris was taken into custody today
charged with stealing #20,000 from the
Standard bank. Richmond attempted
suicide before his arrest and is still coo ill
to appear in court. The two young men
were not acquainted with each other.

The Three Guardsmen
The Gurney-Oxford Range is fitted with three
devices which constantly and uncompromisingly stand
on guard to see that the fire 13 always under perfect
control—that the coal bills are sheared down to the
lowest figure—that the oven is always evenly and
properly heatejS—that no clinkers obstruct the free
burning and proper ventilation of- the fare.
The Gurney-Economlzer, fitted osa the smoke pipe,
is the only draft you have to attend to; a small lever
put up or down ezstire'y regulates the fire. It saves
one ton of c _al in oix. It carries little heat up the
chimney—only the •_____>-_€_ Ii feeds the gases which
burn to the fire-box,' a__d M cannot be had on any
■ other range than the Gurney-Oxford.
The Gurney-Oxford oven is surrounded by flues
that carry an equal amount of heat to all sides. This
almost guarantees results in cooking by providing an
oven evenly heated, without.cold corners or variation.
The Gurney-Oxford. Grate is the result of exhaustive tests to find^the proper carrying surface for
the fire. The fire has abundant air to breathe, and
the less amount of coal burned • i3 all consumed.' So
then, the housewife who has the " Three Guardsmen "
watching over her range, will experience security and
satisfaction in cooking that is not provided by any
other range.

RELIGIONS IN CANADA
Of the twenty-seven tabulated religions
in tbe census returns just issued, the Roman Catholies stand first as to numbers,
with 2,229,600 adherents. The Methodist Church comes next with 918,886;
the Presbyterians, 842,442; the Anglicans,
680,620; the Baptists, 316,477; the Congre-
gationalists, 28,293. The total of these
five prominent Protestant denominations:
is, therefore, 2,784,718. A number of
other Protest-tfit sects add up"a total of
230,000.
Amoug oth$£.interesing itemfe in this
statement of religious beliefs it may be
mentioned that the Greek church-has 15,
630 members, that the Buddhists number 10,40s, tbe Confucians 5,115, and the
Mormons 6,891. IN 1871 there were 1,-
115 Jews in Canada, now there are 16,4^1.
The Pagans record themselves, or are recorded, as 15,107, and the agnostics3i|oi3.
Among the denominations that have
made no numerical progress since 1871
are the Unitarians, the Society of Friends
and the Universalisls. The first mentioned body numered 2,275 in I^7I an<^ i' 's
recorded as 1.934 to day. The Society of
Friends had 7,345 adherents in 1871 and
it has 4,100 now. The Roman Catholic
Church and the five chief Protestant de
nominations exhibit a steady and regular increase.
RACE SUICIDE
A venerable and foremost clergyman
on the continent of America in a recent
address depicted the evils physical and
national as the result of the prevalent
and popular vice of race suicide. The
ravages of the crime are inestimable.
The whole human fabric is involved and
the dire results in the present day of its
practice are absolutely appalling. There
is no other vice comparable to it in its
destrnction of the human race. Unless
the evil is checked the elimination o\
the human family is the inevitab e outcome. More especially is it the case with
the people of the wsstern world, Race
suicide and its co-partner in crime di
vorce are doing an iasidious but deadly
work. Time of itself is a great destroyer,
and when aided by artificial means to
subdue the laws of nature, the evil effects
are asroaiiding. The physical wrecks
seen on every side speak only too plainly of the baneful consequences to adult
life, to sav nothing of the slaughter of
the unborn, which is likened to the
death of the Holy Innocents by King
He od. Sooner or later .the crime must
be faced by legislation more effective
than now existing, and the quicker the
better for the safety and preservation of
people fo say nothing of the ethical side
of the question. From desertations by
leading medical anthorties on the baneful consquences of the wilful contravention of natural law, it would seem as
though too often religious endeavor
shows a false modesty in combattiog such
a universal evil and too mWB zeal in pro-
secut'n.4 more popular subjects but of
less harmful consequences. It is a pity
society had not more clergymeu to raise
their voices, and use the powerful influence of their church organizations in conquering so great destroyers of domestic
happiness, physicai superiority, and the
propagation of mankind of every description.—Brockvill? Recorder.

THE VALUE OF RADIUM
There are no very exact statistics of
radium available, but according to the
United States Geological Survey the whole
quantity in the world is probably not
over two or thrss ounces, and its value,
like that of the big diamonds of the
world is purely nominal. It is worth
whatever the possessors can get for it.
The head of the English corporation producing radium claims that it is worth approximately $100.000,000 a pound. A
year ago this same person had estimated
the value.of tadium at oue third more.
However, a little varation of $50,000,000
is not though to flatter where there is no
appreciable fraction ot a pound of the
precious stuff in sight. The fact that has
more than anything else to do with fix
ing the price is the existence of several
radium banks in the world where tubes
containing a microscopic speck of radinm
are rented out to doctors at something
like $50 a day. While it is known to be
of some value in treating lupus, which is
a form of tuberculosis attacking the tis
sues, usually of the face, there is little
else known about its medical value. It
has been claimed on several occasions
that radium was valuable in the treatment of cancer, but experiments have not
proved this to be an absolute fact.
A short time ago it was reported that
the Austrian government had purchased
the only two mines under private ownership producing the ores from which radium is made, and thereby gained a
monopoly in its manufacture. This report, however, turned out inaccurate. It
is true that the Austrian mines and the
Austrian government heretofore have
supplied the bulk of the radium salts existing in the world, but at the preeeut
time radium is being manufactured in
three other countries, the United States
included. Sweden is prodncing radium
from kolm, the Euglish are getting it
from mines in Wales, while we get it
from western Colorado, where there is a
large deposit of radium-producing ore.
These deposits produce also uranium and
vanadium, the latter being used for. making some of the high-grade steel alloys.
While the mining pays in vanadium
alone, the ore produces a certain per
cent of radium. Ten tons of it procure
only between twenty and thirty milligrammes of radium.-Scientific American.

E. G. Rvkert returned to Montreal re
cently from a trip to Europe, during
which he succeeded in organizing a large
syndicate of British and continental capitalists for the taking over of a large
track of land in the Peace River country.
The total amount of land which will ultimately be taken over is about 800,000
acres and the price will reach nearly
#5.000,000. Scottish, English, Belgian,
Dutch and French capital is interested,
a particularly large proportion being
Dutch.
An invention to protect sheep from the
inroads of wolves, coyotes and other animals that prey upon the herds has been
devised by E, C. Winchester of Thermo-
polis, Wyoming, and has been prounced
by sheep men of that region to be the
most practical device for scaring away
wild animals and keeping the sheep together at night that has yet been offered.
The machine consists of an automatic
gun which will shoot a blank cartridge
every 30/40 or 60 minutes, as arranged,
while a bull's eye lantern is so adjusted
as to revolve and flash its light in every
direction.
