^They are thick beds of sandstone, with
clay, shales and several seams of lignite.
_he base of the series appears to be a
.fey coarse grained sandstone containing
i/^__^iny large rounded white' feldspars in a
matrix of calcareous material. This rests
on the eastern side of the basin, on the
Copper mountain series of rocks, while
on nearly all other boundaries the sediments dip under the more recent volcanic
rocks, which lie as sheets on them. In
parts also these volcanics have thrust
themselves throTTgH" the sediments and
now appear as islands in the older rocks.
The strata do not lie horizontally, but
have been.tilted, at low angles, making
an irregular series ot lolds. Some faults
also occur.
"Many drill holes have been bored in
this tertiary basin in search of lignite
seams, and with some good results. Most
of them, however, were put down at or
near the western edge of the basin. By
the kindness of Ernest Waterman, copies
of the records of these drills have been
obtained. These have disclosed the
thickest seams to be in the vicinity of
the town of Princeton where a bed of
more than eighteen feet in thickness
was struck at a "depth of 49 feet below
the surface. The hole in which this
seam was found was sunk near the bridge
over the Similkameen river to a depth of
180 feet. In this hole seams aggregating
35 feet 7 inches, were crossed in the first
9c. feet, while the rest was in shales and
sandstones.'
After giving tables, showing two drill
holes. Mr. Camsell proceeds: 'The deepest hole bored in the whole basin was
Blakemores's No. 2, sunk to a depth of
1000 feet at a point on the Similkameen
river. about two miles above Princeton.
The only workable seam was«truck at 676
feet. This was found to be 10 feet 7
inches thick, with a clay parting of six
it_yres near the middle of it.' (The
record of this hole, quoted in detail by
Mr. Camsell. shows the occurrance here
of 14 seams, 13 of which varied in thickness from one inch to eight inches. The
total thickness of coal, including the
large seam above mentioned, is 15 feet)>
Continuing, Mr. Camsell says:
.'Four miles up the Similkameen river
a bore hole, sunk to a depth of 257 feet
only went through 2 feet, 5 inches of coal,
while a drill hole near the soulh end of
the basin at Ashnola, which penetrated
to a depth of 398 feel, gav^g. no workable
seams at all, and only a few bands of
what has been called in the record 'coaly
shale'.
'A bofie hole was alto drilled near the
westernOgg^e^OT^he basin, where   the
se_______T_+p. under the volcanice,  and
not from where there _? an outcrop of
coal four feet thick. The depth of the
hole is 863 feet, and in that distance 17
seams of coal were cut through, with an
aggregate thickness of 5c feet 6 inches
of which the thickest seam was nine feet.
'B^rom a study of these records it would
appear that most, though not all, of the
workable seams are within" 300 feet of
the surface. It must be noted, however,
that no prospecting by drilling has  been

From Our Own Correspondent.
East Princeton, Aug. 1.—H.A.Solly
and T. Coulter White of Summerland,
and H. Murk of Penticton were visitors
here last week and purchased a number
of lots.
Good progress is being made on the
large, solid . masonry buildings in which
cement will be manufactured.
Applications for lots are going to the
head office every day.
Over forty men are at work grading the
railway spur to connect with the main
line.
The clearing of the townsite has been
completed.
- Fishing1* and picnic parties are very
much in vogue, j Probably nothing could
be more "entrancing than seated these
warm days with.£good friend by one's
side, watching the trout and the polly-
wog sporting in the shaded nooks of
rippling Onemile. There is such a thing
as having bait on both ends of the rod.
It is so romantic and poetical.   Myomi!

'DELAY!'  THAT AWFUL WORD.
-J. H. Kennedy, construction engineer
of the'V.V.'arrived yesterday from the
coast and went up the line to Coalmont
today. It is understood that the line is
to be re-revised in"the hope of improviug
the grade. There will be two parties of
surveyors in the field, one ou this side of
the summit and the other is now working
east in the Coquihalla pass. In view, of
the amount of work to be done in this
revision and the 'jog along'speed with
which it will be carried out, there is very
little likelihood cf any grading being
done this year on the last remaining link
to give Princeton direct connection with
Vancouver. This is 'hard luck J and rather more than was expected from Jim.
N. Thompson, representing a large
Sheffield, Eng., steel firm was in town
yesterday on his first visit. 'He is very
pleased with Princeton and its abounding resources. Mr. Thompson wonders
at Vancouverites straining to obtain the
trade of districts a thousand miles away
when right at their back door endless
mineral wealth existed. Let Ihetn agitate for completion of the VV railway
rather than a line to Peace river.

LOYALTY AND RECIPROCITY.
While there is a disposition in
the minds of some of our public
men and also in the hearts of certain editors to belittle the position
to which Canada aspires, a nation
within an empire, it is most refreshing to find outside opinion, unbiassed by political affinity, praising
the spirit of independence possessed
by patriotic Canadians. Freedom
'is not inconsistent with loyalty, neither is manly independence inconsistent with, unity. If Canadians
did not evince a spirit of self gov"
.ernment up to the point of nationhood • it would brand them as an
incapable people. For it is the
ambitions and aspirations of a people which give the cue to their
strength and ability.- Nothing
should please the motherland more
than to see her colonial children"
being weaned gradually from that
weak and childlike dependence
•which stifles progress. There will
be no separation from the parental
roof if the home is made inviting
and commands the respectful loyalty
«of the maturing members of it.
No Canadian of intelligence or
with the manly pride in his native
land which characterizes all true
sons" wants to exchange the flag
under'which he was born. The
talk of annexation to tbe United
States is the greatest-bugaboo ever
foisted upon the Canadian public
and 'will not cut any figure with
thoughtful* tnen!
The Prfemier of Tasmania, on his
way home from the coronation recently said in Vancouver that
Tasmanians 'are learning much
from Canada and its splendid system of attracting immigration is a
source of keen study to our officials. I am jealous of Canada s
wonderful growth and phenomenal
development, especially her solid
commercial present and future, but
I am proud to think that she is a
most powerful factor in our British
empire, and an object lesson to
other nations of what British dominions can. attain under British
rule.' Such words are refreshing
and encouraging for Canadians to
keep right on with their nation
building. The problem, of empire
cannot be solved by sentimental
gawkies who profess to see in reciprocity and its consequent expansion of trade with a foreign country the hideous spectre of annexation. Partyism is indeed run mad
when the libertine of politics will
with  eyes   wide   open,   aye,   and
mouth too, oppose himself to fact
and his country's welfare all for the
passing satisfaction of posing as a
patriot while denouncing his Liberal fellow countryman as a traitor.
It is much to be regretted that the
Conservatiye party has not shown
any desire to share in the glory of
passing a measure of such national
importance as reciprocity. Ignoring the broad principle of the reciprocity measure, expansion of trade
and more friendly relations with a
great neighbor nation, the Tories
narrow the question down to a
mere party issue.
Britain and the United States are
on most friendly terms and anything
Canada may do to add to the existing cordial relations is in line
wifh the spirit of the times—universal peace. Militarism is dying
and but for a few bloodthirsty jingoes in every country who smell
national insult and menace from
afar; there would be less of mad
armaments weighing down the na»
tions with poverty dooming burdens. The glamor and jingle of
military parade appeals only to the
morbid appetite, and this unrestrained plunges nations into senseless war with its concomitants of
misery, woe and hades generally.
To minimize the probabilities of war
between two nations the primary
conditions of trade must be fair and
free. The moment restraint is
placed upon trade a thousand festering ills, internal and external
spring into existence. Some punctilious customs official may cause
strained relations between nations
and under the fostering influence
of a protective tariff monopoly
thrives and trusts flourish. It is
therefore the plain duty of-every
citizen to support any legislation
that will promote peace within and
along our international boundary.
Although reciprocity is only a half
measure yet it is a step in the right
direction,, the ultimate, goal being
free trade, which is natural trade.
The glorious example set by Britain to the whole world is having
its effect in mellowing the minds cf
leading protectionists in America
and now there is reciprocity in that
country pointing to full and free
trade. Is it too much to expect
Canada to follow in the good work
and adopt reciprocity ? If the
Conservative leaders so please they
may save this country the turmoil
of an untimely election by consenting to reciprocity in the house, otherwise they must bear the odium
of certain defeat on a question which
is already sanctioned by the two
leading English speaking nations.
In a spirit of honorable compromise these leaders could at least
give reciprocity two years' trial.
For the welfare of the conntry and
the good of the Conservative party
Star hopes some agreement will be
reached to avoid an election.

roads  and  the  beautiful drives in and about Princeton will always create demand for pleasure driving
