BIG MINING PROFITS
SHOW UP NICELY
IN DIVIDENDS
MINES  AND  MINEEALS.
Metal prices for the month of October
have been very satisfactory and are as
follows : copper 16.337 c- Per lb i silver,
60.793c. per ounce; lead, 4.402 c. per
lb., spelter, 5.340c. per lb.
C M Snowden is running a drift on
his hydraulic lease in Roany camp.
Prospects show a marked improvement
at depth Coarse gold and platinum
were recovered on bedrock.
The British Columbia Copper Company has a diamond drilling outfit
working on the south end of the
Mother Lode mine.
-^Che.Coalmont Collieries Co. shipped
recently a car of coal to the Crows
Nest Coal Co. to be tested for its coking qualities. Enough to supply the
local deitfands of Coalmont is being
mined. The tramway to convey the
coal to the railway will be pushed on
to completion.
The Hedley Gold Mining Co. will
push the work of construction on the
■m across the Similkameen river to>
be used for power purposes in con-
recticn with the stamp mill and tramway.
W.J. Budd, of Calgary, director ofthe
B C. Cement Co., is here en business at
the cement works  East Piinceton.
E. P. Voigt, of Voigt camp, was in
town Monday and reports no change
in the pending deal between himself
and the B. C. Copper Co.
The Granby company began diamond drilling on the big copper group
this week. This group contains 13
claims with, rich surface showings and
is only a short distance from Greenwood. If the ore is found at depth it
is probable that the Granby might
build a smelter at Greenwood.
Col. Robert Stevenson is planning to
begin work on the group of mineral
claims below Allison. This property
stows up well in copper and other
metal values and the intention of Col.
Stevenson and co-owners is to put it
on a shipping basis. It is not improbable that a bridge will be thrown
across the Similkameen river near this
property, giving the mine and settlers
facilities for shipping and development.
A concentrator may be built hear
Beaverdell to mill the low grade ores
p,t that camp. For testing a ton of
low grade ore is being shipped to
Denver from the Sally mine.
With the declaration of the new
quarterly dividend of the Granby company of Grand Forks of $225,000 it has
become practically certain that the
total distribution of profits by six mining or mining and smelting companies
of Kootenay and Boundary during 1913
will exceed the $2,000,000 mark,
against just over $1,212,000 in 1912.
The dividend list for 1913 is headed by the Granby company at Grand
Forks, which, is this year paying its
stockholders $900,000, and tun Standard mine at Silverton ha.3 already
paid $550,000. The Consolidated company at Trail has distributed $220 000,
the Nickle Plate at Hedley $1.80.000,
the British Columbia Copper company "at Greenwood $88,675. :'.nd the
Le Eoi No. 2 at Rossland $43,200.
E. Berrymau, late .oreman for the
B. C Copper Co on Copper Mountain,

RAILWAY POINTS.
J.J.Warren, president of the Kettle
Valley railway, was in town this week
going on to Merritt and returning
Tuesday. He left for Penticton on
Wednesday by auto.
Engineer Burns, of the K. V., is near
Allison with his locating line and is
camped on Holmes' flat.
No official announcement has yet been
made as to the route of the K. V. It
will come to Princeton but the numerous
lines surveyed keep the public guessing
as to the one to be selected. The direct
route from Osprey lake to Aspen Grove
is known to be more expensive than via
Princeion but there is a saving in mileage
by the direct route.
About ten miles of track remains to be
laid Wore Osprey lake is reached ;
bridges deiay tracklaying.
It is understood that Grant, Smith &
Co. are the successful contractors for the
Osprey Lake—Princeton section. Their
work east of Penticton is finished and
they will move their camps to Osprey
lake as soon as steel is there.
HOSPITAL BENEFIT
There was good attendance at the
Princess theatre Monday and Tuesday
evenings, the program of pictures being up to standard while the songs of
local vocalists received general appreciation and hearty applause. Those
taking part in the program were: Mr.
and Mrs. Griffiths, Mrs. Waterman,
Miss Day and Mr. Whiteman. Messrs.
Dignan Bros, very generously gave the
theatre and pictures for the benefit of
the hospital and the performers gave
of their talents, altogether netting a
gcodly sum for charitable purposes.
Tl'e thanks of the public are due all
mentioned.
TULAMEEN BRIDGE
E. D. Boeing finished the bridge
across the Tulameen river last week
and discharged j the crew of bridge
builders in his employ for the past
two months. The work was successfully carried out and no accident occurred during the erection of the false
portion or the heavy main superstructure. Viewed from the roadway up
the hill, easterly, the bridge presents
a fine symmetrical trim appearance,
and is most substantial. The piers
look fit and are no doubt capable of
withstanding any pressure of ice jams
and swift running flood water. Mr.
Boeing has completed the bridge in
good time, although delayed for lumber
at first. He has given complete satisfaction to his officials and harmonized all around with citizens and his
crew of expert bridgemen. This
bridge replaces the old one which
had served its life of 12 or 13 years,
and is in line with the policy of 'Good
Roads' Taylor, minister oi public
works.

A French doctor announces that he
has discovered a use for the appendix,
and says that it should not be removed
except in cases of necessity. If the
appendix stays, what becomes of the

Rabindranath Tagore, who has been
awarded the year's Nobel prize fot
literature, is a Hindu writer whose
work has lately begun to attract attention in Great Britain. It has been
long known in India among his own.
people. The poets and writers of Asia
in past days gave the world its sub-

SOUND  DOCTRINE
The people who need more religion

stand all day in the rain without a
blanket; the man who growls "like a
beast with a sore head when his wife
asks him for money; the preacher who
is always looking for an easier and
higher salary; the man who walks the
streets with his hands in his pockets
while his wife carries the baby; "and
the man who keeps a dog and says he
can't afford the home newspaper. Star

ELECTRIC LIGHTING
There will be general satisfaction,
and aproval of the action of the
Princeton Coal and Land Co. in providing electric light for the town.
Several propositions have been talked
of within the past year but it remains for the above company to give
tangible proof of its earnestness and
break ground for erection of poles
and the installation of the necessary
machinery. From now until the equipment is finally in operation no time
will be lost in pushing the undertaking to an early end. The initial steps
thus taken by the Princeton Coal and
Land Co. stand to the credit of its
directors and manager for the enterprise shown and for adding so materially to the further development of the
town.
Circulars have been distributed by
the company to prospective customers
in town explaining in detail the regulations and charges for light. A comparative statement of rates is made,
which the reader will observe is not
unfavorable to those of the local company.   Following is the circular:
The flat rate is for an incandescent
service from 4 p. m. to 8 a. m., and is
based on a lamp or unit of 16 candle
power, (or a 40 watt Tungsten or
Mazda light.) When lamps other than
16 c. p. are used the total cancHe
power used is divided by 16, and il
their is a fraction remaining the fraction .shall be -counted as 16 candle
power. . NOTE—One 16 c. p. light
equals-two 8 c. p.'s or "fouT 4 c. p.'s.'"
Rates payable monthly im advance

FREE SEED ON REQUEST
By instructions of the Hon. Minister of Agriculture a distribution of
superior sorts of grain and potatoes
will be made during the coming
winter and spring to Canadian farmers. The samples for general distribution will consist of spring wheat
(5 lbs.), white oats (4 lbs.), barley
(5 lbs.), and field peas (5 lbs.). These
will be sent out from Ottawa. A distribution of potatoes (in 3 lb. samples)
will be carried on from several of the
experimental farms, the Central Farm
at Ottawa supplying only the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. All
samples will be sent free by mail.
Applicants must give particulars in
regard to the soil on their farms, and
some account of their experience with
such kinds of grain (or potatoes) as
they have grown, so that a promising
sort for their conditions may be selected.
Each application must be separate
and must be signed by the applicant.
Only one sample of grain and one
of potatoes can be sent to each farm.
Applications on any kind of printed
form cannot be accepted. If two or
prcre samples are asked for in the
same letter only one will be sent.
A3 the supply of seed is limited,
farmers are advised to apply early;
but the applications will not necessarily be filled in the exact order in
which they are received. Preference
will always be given to the most
thoughtful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of
January will probably be too late.
All applications for grain (and applications from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes) should
be addressed to the Dominion Cer-
^Tist. Central Experimental Farm.
Ottawa. Such applications require
no postage. If otherwise addressed
delay Pud disappointment may occur.

ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER.
Another step in the development
of an embryonic city is the actual
beginning this week of the erection
and installation of an electric service
for Princeton and immediate district.
The first unit of the plant for generating light will be sufficient for all
requirements and the Princeton
Coal and Land Co., owners, are
now inviting subscribers for service
that provision may be made for
delivery about the first of the new
year. Electric light and power now
plays such an important part in the
industrial and economic welfare of
a town that it is impossible to progress without it. The advantages
of electricity over all forms of light
or power are so well known that it
seems scarcely necessary to mention
them. Chief among many of the
good a.nalities which make electricity preferable are its cleanliness,
ease of control and transmission,
and saiety. The usual elements of
danger are almost entirely absent
from it as compared with other
illuminants. Non-explosive and
wasteless in handing it will effect
economies in life, property and
time. It is a very timely and
welcome addition to the comforts
and conveniences of citizens and is
sure to meet with very general
patronage and demand.
WHAT IS THE CAUSE ?
It is an inexhaustible source of
pleasure and satisfaction to be able
to point occasionally to the vast
natural resources of the Similkameen district. Having a boundless
mineral wealth and the contributory
conditions of soil and climate to
make a great country, with large
and populous centres, it remains
only for the genius and handicraft
of man to develop and appropriate
the now dormant resources. The
responsibilities of the citizen no less
than those of the state lie in the
path of progress and the unceasing
march of discovery and exploration.
A drowsy people and inefficient
government will dam the flow of
capital and enterprise and curse
the^ very ground teeming with
mineral'1 and agricultural wealth.
Mexico and other members  of our
southern continental family illustrate the effect of indifference,
lassitude and debilitated commercial
conditions. But we are not of that
disposition. The people of the
Similkameen and the provincial
government are thoroughly aware
of the marvellous opportunities
presented. Two things only, now
hold this country in check and are
accountable for the stagnant condition of mining and trade. They
are : absence of direct railway connections with dilatory construction
and the almost total lack of capital.
In the first instance the remedy lies
with the government in exerting
due pressure on the railway companies : in the second, some more
elastic or adjustable sytem of finance
must be found and applied to our
growing needs. If the monied
institutions and loaning companies
are not competent to meet the
financial requirements of rapidly
expanding provinces such as British
Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan then our money system should
be revised. No genius is required
to devise some way out of the
difficulty arising from shortage of
capital. The natural law of supply
and demand should not be disturbed
by any combination of circumstances, corporations or interests.
Legislation should keep the channels of commerce and industrial
development perfectly free from
extraneous and damaging causes.
Now, in the case ot the Similkameen, the supply of capital has
never been commensurate with our
natural assets. What is the cause?
Simply, that our monetary system
cannot cope with rapidly changing
conditions, resulting in a standstill
that palls on trade generally.
When these periods of stringency
occur the guaranteeing policy of
the governments and borrowing
powers of the individual should be
made to harmonize until the danger
of crash or panic was past. Governments guarantee bonds of railway
companies, why not guarantee the
borrowing paper of worthy individuals and small, enterprising investors ? \
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tardy railway  construction  has
been and is the misfortune of the
Similkameen. This is said in no
pessimistic vein, it is an absolute
fact. Eight or nine years ago the
V. V. & E. began its snailly crawl
through the Similkameen ; it is still
crawling. Four years ago the
Kettle Valley railway started in to
make dirt fly The dirt flew all
right and so much of it is still in
the air that the increase of grade
requires magnifying glasses to
observe it. Nevertheless, there is
a bright future. The Kettle Vnl-
ley railway is under obligations to
the government to build to Prince-
and it must come in 1914.

A new edition 'of a series of four
maps covering the Dominion railway
belt in the province of British Columbia, has been received at the Star
office and is now being issued from the
railway lands branch of the Department of the Interior at Ottawa. This
set of maps, the Kamloops and Lytton
and the Sicamous sheets of which are
at present available for distribution,
shows in a most graphic way the land
situation to a very recent date, and
the standing of each quarter-section,
according to the records of the Department at that date. Copies of ilie
Kamloops and Lytton or'the Sicamous
sheet may now be obtained free of
charge upon application to F. C. C.

Lands, Department of the Interior,

PARCELS POST
Everything is practically in readiness for the bringing into force of the
parcels post. The Post Office Department has been engaged during the
greater part of the summer and fall
gathering data upon which it could
work out a scheme that would be just
and equitable to all points. The big
matter to be decided upon now is the
rates. It is not necessary to intro-i
duce a bill in Parliament to bring thej
parcels post into effect. Last year
Parliament gave the Postmaster-General the necessary power, and all thatj
is required is a departmental order
from him. This order, it is learned today, will be issued January first. The
rates are expected to be slightly higher than those which prevail in the
United States.

LABOR UNIONS
Membership in the labor unions is
growing. The annual report of the
Department of Labor, recently issued,
shows that there was an increase last
year from 133,152 to 160,120. This is
equivalent to about 2 per cent of the
population. The department estimates
the membership of wageearners in
Canada at 1,300,000. About one-eighth
are members of unions. Nearly the
whole membership is in organizations,
which have their headquarters in the
United States, and most of which are
in affiliation with the American Federation of Labor. The latter organization is the most important of its
character in North America, and has
a membership of about 2,000,000.
