SILVERIEAD ON WHIPSAW
Strong Ledge, 22 Ft. from Wall to Wall,
Contains Carbonates Impregnated with
Silver and Lead.
Railway Transportation Required, for that Section, which-is
Bound to be Large Tonnage Producer—Mining
Camps Dot District—Country Rich
I??* in Natural Resources. '
Float Led to Discovery.
Mining, which includes prospecting,
is probably the most alluring occupation
followed by man.. From the smallest
piece of float to the indst highly mineralized ore in place there is intense interest for the man with the 'mineral eye.'
It was a small piece of float on a fork of
the Whipsaw emptying into the Similkameen which caught the eye of Billy
Knight, senior of Knight & Day, prospectors, and from that small beginning
what has. all the earmarks of a great mine
has been discovered. It is no surprist to
anv one acquainted with this section of
country that a mine should be found
there, ior Copper and Kennedy mountains and Friday creek with vast and valuable ore bodies are all contiguous and
in the same mineral field. The whole of
this section extending to Roche river
may be termed a vast mining camp awaiting transportation for ore already on the
dump or--ready to be produced within a
very short time. The natnral resources
of this locality are considered .exhaust-
less in waterpower, coal and other minerals, there being also an abundance of
timber for any or all purposes.
In Great Schist Zone.
Knight & Day have located what is
believed to be one of the richest strikes
of silver-lead ore ever made in Britreh-
Columbia. Samples of the ore contain
lead sulphides and iron oxide or carbonates, assaying 60 p.c. lead, 26 ozs. silver
and $1.60 in gold. The ledge is well defined and is 20 feet wide, the country rock
being schist. This is part of the famous
schist belt wjiich extends some 50 miles
north and south along the east slope of
the Hope range of mountains and carries
the gold-platinum ores in the north and
the copper-gold ores in the south. The
ledge has been exposed at intervals for
500 feet by open cuts with the silver-lead
now in the centre. The lowest exposure
of the ledge in the gulch would give a
depth of 130 feet. But another hundred
feet of depth could easily be obtained by
stripping and a tunnel commenced right
on  the ledge.   The trend of the lead is
s'ightly   west   of due   north  and south,
dipping south-westerly
Three claims, the Lucky Pair, CO.D.,
and Day & Knight, have been located by
the discoverers. Other claims have been
staked bv various parties, thus the foundations of a mining camp are laid, the
future of which is largel> dependent on
the amount of capital forthcoming for
development and operating purposes
From Princeton Whipsaw camp is distan
about 22 miles via the Hope trail. It has
a good traii leading from the Hope and is
about two miles south of it.
Resembles Some Big Mines.
Mr. Knight has a wide experience in
the mines of the western slates and also
in this province. He is partner in the
celebrated Transvaal group of Highland
valley, besides having other mining interests throughout the country. If any
man should know a mine when he sees
one it is Mr. Knight and in-all his ex
perience he has not seen anything that
starting- from the grass roots, bore all the
ore characteristics together with proportions and extent that the group on the
Whipsaw does. All his other mining
propositions fade into comparative dimin-
utiveness alongside this group. He is
familiar with the world famed Bunker
Hill mine of Wardnei, Idaho, on which
he was engaged making open cuts, and
so far, the Whipsaw property has a remarkable identity with it.
Bailroad is Necessity.
The low cost of production of ore that
can be mined very largely with pick and
shovel will appeal to the investor with
limited capital. Transportation facilities
are1 indispensable in every camp, for
without them, the most cheaply produced
ore, however rich, would be valueless.
The railroad is within a few miles of
Princeton, and on reaching here must be
extended to the outlying camps for tonnage. An easy route is available from
here to Ashnola, where Great Northern
people are interested, from there to Whip-
saw camp is neither difficult nor far. In
any consideration of railroad construction Whipsaw must command attention.
It is a shipping proposition today..
Messrs. Knight and Day have lost no
time in preparing for development of
their property. A good' traii has been
made to it arid quarters for the winter are
now being built. They are progressive
prospectors and more will, no doubt,
be soon heard from them in their work
of developing and proving the property.
Samples of the ore may be seen at the
Star office.

DIED A TRUE HERO.
The appalling misfortune whereby 11
persons were burned to death in the
Okanagan hotel, Ve:non, had for one of
its victims, Archibald Inkling, nephew
of Arthur Hickliria^managing director
of trie V.F.M.,Q6, Princeton. Having
s.aved twofrgan the flames, a girl appeared
at an upper window screaming for help,
which the deceased heroically strove to
render, exclaiming, 'I'll save her or I'll
die.'"*The girl was saved by his efforts
but he fell into a pit of flame from: which
he never emerged.
SALE QE^THE NICKEL PLATE.
and Daly Reduction Co's
Works in New Hands.
The sale of the- Daily Reduction Co's
stamp mill and the famous Nickel Plate
mine at Hedley has at last been consummated after a period of suspense and
anxiety through fear that the deal might
be dropped and the nonprogressive tneth-
ods-'of the old "regime" continued. It
means tnuch-To'r Hedley and will benefit
the-whole Similkameen. A smelter may
now be looked forward to with some real
and tangible basis of expectancy..
The purchasers are men interested in
the United States Steel Corporation and
the price paid is said to be $6,500,000, but
no official figures are, as yet, available.
There are indisputable evidences of the
Great Northern magnate, J. J. Hill, being
interested in the deal, which makes the
bargain, so far as the Similkameen
public are concerned, all the better.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Ernest Waterman is expected back in
two or three days from the coast; coming
over Hope mountains. He was interviewed in the Province and stated that
his mission to the coast was to purchase
a plant for the coal mine, which will enable them to produce 400 tons daily.
Indications of an approaching boom
may be found in the arrival recently of
the piledriver and that other attraction
the niggah minstrels. 'Waiting, still
waiting.'
Rev. Mr. Conn killed a rattlesnake
a little this side of Hedley recently with
seven rattlers. Like St. Patrick, he would
banish not only snakes but all other evil.
'More power to him.'
Dr. Whillans «f Hedley was in town
Monday.
WANT BETTERROUTE
Great Northern Engineer Looking for Shorter and
Easier Way.
Eive or Six Miles of Tunnel Proposition at Head of Eagle Creek—
V.,V. & E. Progress.
It is well known that the chief engineer of the V.,V. & E. and other Great
Northern officials have a particular dislike for the Coquihalla route as now surveyed. It is with a view to avoiding this' '
route that Engineer Kennedy with two
assistants, Black and Hogeland, left on
Thursday for the head of Eagle Creek, a
tributarv of the TulameerT'rWeff'f'From.
the head of this creek to Unknown Creek
there is a long divide, which, if favorable for tunnelling,-it is said, Wiuld save
some thirty miles of heavy cbnstrucfion
from the head of Coquihalla. Pass to-
Hope. The party is piloted by L. Gibson
who knows the country well and is. an
experienced packer.
Pile driving is proceeding rapidly on
the bridge across the Similkameen, due
to tiie clocklike work of the'machine
and every man knowing his business'and
doing it. In another week or ten day*
the bridge will be ready for the horse
dump cars extending the grade onto the
station yard flat.
More men have arrived recently and a
big push is noticeable all along the line.
It is believed that the railjayers will- be
here on schedule time, Oct. 1st.  -JJL
SPOKANE INTERSTATE PAIR.
EbiTOR STAR^Sir: While there is
already abundant evidence that we shall
have the greatest" display of minerals-at-
the Spokane Interstate Fair on Sept. 20
to 25 inclusive that was ever shown at
the grounds it stili remains for a number
of districts and mines to be heard from.
The opoortunity which will be afforded
the miners to have their exhibits examined by several hundred of the most
prominent mining engineers on this continent or any other should be all the inducement required to call out a display
from every mine in the Northwest.
Will you not urge the miners of your
locality to get busy and get out the best
display possible, and if a party cannot be
sent with the exhibits, pack them care-
fully at the proper time and send them in
with such maps, photos and descriptions
as will- best advertise the mines. The
exhibits will be viewed by five hundred
mining engineers and many thousands of
eastern people.
Very respectfully yours,
L. K. Armstrong,
Spokane, July 31. Secretary.

j LET THERE BE PEACE.
The recent meeting of King Edward and the Emperor of Russia
is a matter of unusual moment in
view of the war cloud, now thickening and again dispersing, 3'et forever hanging over Europe. Our
King has well earned the title of
I Peacemaker,' and there is no
doubt that his influence to perpetuate peace and harmony of the European nations was exerted upon
the visiting monarch. The Czar
has relinquished his despotic powers recently, giving constitutional
government to his poor, downtrodden subjects. He has at last opened
his eyes to the fact that the nearer
-a ruler lives to his subjects and the
greater freedom they enjoy iu self
^government is the surest protection
from bombs a czar can have. No
bodyguard required for that monarch who treats his subjects as if
they were his equals, possessing all
the rights and liberties of the law
that he does, and subject to the
same moral and physical infirmities
that he is. • Such a monarch will
always command the lore of b's
subjects and his  life never stand in
Jeopardy  of any  political assassin.
-Our own good king moves among
his subjects with perfect freedom
from any fear of the bomb thrower
and this immunity is the result of
that consciousness of having given
■no provocation for violence. There
will always be the maniac and the
fanatic to threaten, and even take,
the lives of prominent personages,
but they are not to be confounded
with any other in enormity. - If the
Star may be permitted to humbly
suggest to the crowned beads and
other rulers of Europe it would
urge upon them the necessity for
frequent visits and an annual conference. It seems that much of the
friction and estrangement in Europe is due to the cold hauteur of
the rulers. This spirit cannot exist where there is familiarity and
association. Europe armed and
still arming beyond all reason is an
awful commentary on the statesmen and rulers concerned. The
best thing to be done is to arrange a conference and call a
halt in this mad and ruinous expenditure on armaments No man
in all the Old World is more capable of bringing about an entente
cordiale among the nations than
King Edward the 'Peacemaker* and
the hope is entertained that he may
turn his attention to the noble cause
of pacifying Europe, and with it
the world at large. Canada can ill
afford to be plunged into the vortex of never ending debt for the
mere show or awe inspiring effect of
a large fleet of tubs of war trailing
their smoke up and down her coasts
and the ocean wide. Every cent
of Canada's revenue is required in
development of her vast natural resources—she has no time for building-a navy which in a few years
must be consigned to the scrap heap
or find a last resting place at the
bottom of the deep blue. Statesmen, politicians and diplomats can
no longer be trusted to carry out a
wise policy, owing to a subtle something called influence. The King
is our only hope to avert the impending naval craze which threats
ens to financially swamp the country.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One of the most encouraging features of the present slack business
period is the cheerful optimism and
buoyancy of nearly all engaged in
business in Princeton. They are
firmly grounded as to the future of
the town. The fact that here must
be the terminus of the V.,V. & E.
for at least the next eighteen
months gives assurance of trade
expansion resulting from increased
population and a permanent^ay-
ro!l. Nearly every business lSsM*
ttition in town reports increased receipts, in one case 25 per cent., in
another almost double in comparison with former years. While it is
hard for the fixed residents of the
town to realize the progress and
improvements made or to grasp the
realities of trade expansion, yet
these facts are patent and most glaring to visitors.
Sixty days after date I intend to apply to the
Chief Commissioner of Lands for permission to
purchase 289 acres of land described as follows :
Starting from the S.W. corner of Lot 706, thence
N. about 40 chains, W. to the Tulameen River,
thence up the Tulameen and S. 80 chains, E. 40
chains to the Similkameen River, N. 80 chains
more or less to point of commencement and containing 289 acres, being formerly known as Lot
243.

A decrease in cigarette consumption of forty-five millions is the result of enforcing the law regarding

It is a well rooted policy of this
paper in commenting on matters of
public interest to avoid personalities
in an offensive sense. In condemning the management of the telephone line the desire to remove unfair treatment of certain applicants
for telephone accommodation and
the further desire to make this line
a credit to the Liberal government,
alone actuated the Star. It would
be a great mistake for any newspaper to condone or tolerate the acts
of any public servant who so far
demeaned his position as to injure
the business interests of those with
whom he is unfriendly and on whom
he seemingly delights to vent his
anger or jealousy. Such narrow
minded individuals should not be
allowed to hold the position of a
public servant. There comes a day
of reckoning for all such sooner or
later.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Gordon Murdoch will shortly begin
work on tbe pack bridge at Ashnola.
Dr. Blair, of Portland, Ore., was in
town Saturday on mining business. It
was his first visit to Princeton and was
much impressed with itsTappearance and
possibilities. The Dr. is a very probable
investor in Princeton district.
The death -of Gustaf Johnson at Nelson on Tuesday, ioth inst, removes a
resident of Princeton for the past three
years, he having been employed in the
brewery for about that length of time.
He died from heart failure. The deceased was about 50 years of age, of a
kindly disposition and had numerous
friends. He was a member of the Order
of Eagles, by whom the last rites of
burial were administered.
A close season has been declared for
bear which will extend from July 15 to
Sept. 1. During this time their fur is not
of any appreciable value.
Just Arrived—A large and varied selection of Stetson hats at the A. E^-Howse
Co's.
H. McCallister has bonded his mine on
Granite Creek to coast parties.
Bear are plentiful in the berry sections
of the mountains.
F. P. Cook, postmaster and government
telephone agent at Granite Creek, wa.
in town Thursday.
When it comes to soliciting monev f< r
advertising the mineral resources of this
district it is surprising what a long, poor
hardup story some people can tell. Yet.
when a flimflam darkie show comes to
town a dollar is so much old paper and
the whole population digs up. There
must either be cheaper shows or more
interest taken in developing the town if
we are to progress as we should. Would
it not be a good plan for the Ladies Aid
and Board of Trade to argufy this matter
and if possible come to a helpful conclusion?
Critics of the colored minstrel show
held last Friday night think there was
too much of a muchness and rather more
of a same sameness than are necessary
to make a fellow laugh. Those coons
might suit some audiences.
The provincial government has put a
bridge across Bear Creek and also over
the Tulameen at the mouth of Slate
Creek. Several culverts have been put
on the road between Slate Creek and
Otter Flat.
Ladies Aid will meet at the home of
Mrs. Murdoch, Thursday, 3 p.m.
Joe Wigmore pulled in  with the min
strel show and  received congratulations
on his promotion. Just tbe same, be is
the funniest man around and handy with
the silk on the overland flier between
Hedley and Keremeos.
E. F. Thomson, a settler from U.S.,
has decided to become a resident of
this district.
Messrs. Murdoch, Snowden and Petrie
have gone a-huckleberry picking.
