MINES A__D ]»_____._.
John Knudson and H. B. Mausette
have had tests made of their Iceland spar
deposit, ten miles from the mouth of the
Ashnola river, the analyses 97^6 and 99.8,
being of a high grade of purity This
spar is used in making a superior cement
and the quantity is almost unlimited.
Three feet 2 inches of copper-gold ore
at a depth of 450 feet has been struck at
the Aufeas mine, west slope of Hope
mountains. The assays show high copper values and from $23 to $30 in gold.
The Aufeas company will immediately
install an aerial tram and ship ore to' the
Tacoma smelter.
Qfc___-GTai_am, superintendent of the
Nicola Valley Coal and Coke Co.. has resigned and will accept a similar position
for the Corbin Coal and Coke Co.. in the
Crow country. Mr. Graham was formerly in the employ of the Princeton Coal &
Land Co.
Owing to the great importance of fossils to the geologist a request is made to
those having any to forward them to the
. Vancover chamber of mines for inspection by the members of the Internatioual
Geological congress.
Copper-Gold on 15-Mile Creek.
A strike of very rich looking copper
ore has been made by Urbin Hicks on the
Copper King on 15-Mile creek, a tributary of the Coquihalla river. He has located three claims and has traced the
vein on the surface across all of them and
beyond for a distance of more than a
mile. He states that its width on the
claims varies from eight to fourteen feet,
and that for the whole distance the appearance of the ore is uniform. He
brought some samples into Hope on
Thursday and they were conceeded to be
the best looking specimens of copper ore
ever brought into Hope. Mr. Hicks has
selected the site for a tunnel and will begin operations with a crew early in Sept-
tember. The properties are on the creek
abont two miles from its junction with
the Coquihalla. On Dewdney creek
Williams, Erickson and three partners
have been doing development work for
several years and now report very promising showings. The prospects of early
means of transportation by the Kettle
Valley railway gives importance to these
developments. Without it they could
not be profitably operated. Their development, in turn, promises tonnage for
the road as soon as it is completed.—Yale
Revi -W.
J. C. Edwards, in charge   of  develop
ment operations on the Treasure Mountain property was in town this week in
searcn of working miners. He is in about 400 feet on the tunnel, all solid rock-
and expects to strike the lead in another
hundred feet. Leadville is attracting
much attention from mining men and
will, no doubt, make good in the final
stage of development.
The annual repoit of the Vancouver
board of trade for 1912-1913 has been received. Under the sub-head 'Coal and
Coke' it says:—
The Columbia Coal and Coke Co. continued development of its Coalmont property in the vicinity of Tulameen river,
but shipped only about 2,000 tons of coal.
The Princeton Coal and Land Co., operating at Princeton, Similkameen, benefited by the completion of its new coal-
haudling plant, having a capacity of
about 500 tons a day, but long distance
from the centres of population and the
consequent long freight haul are a serious
handicap to the marketing of its coal, so
that it was not practicable last year to
considerably increase the output, 'which
is stated to have been about 25,000 tons.
Mineral Exhibits Wanted
The Vancouver Exhibition opens on
Friday, Aug. 29, closing on Friday, Sept.
5th. The mineral department of this exhibition has an untiring and enthusiastic worker in the person of H. B. Brown,
who is ' making collections of mineral
samples from all districts of the province.
Again he requests samples from all having claims and the interest of the district
at heart. Samples labeled and addressed
to Vancouver Exhibition, care of H. B.
Brown will be received by N. Huston at
his livery barn who will box and ship
them about the 15th inst. The Nickle
Plate mine at Hedley is making a big
display of its ore. It i expected that E.
Berryman will send a representative exhibit ofthe B. C. Copper Co.'s ores from
Copper Mountain. Whipsaw and Leadville ores will also be on exhibition.
Theo.Reese has a fine showing of silver-
lead on what is to be known as the Coin
group of mineral claims eight miles
north of Princeton on the K. V. railway
150 feet from the proposed track.
Princeton district band is enlisting the
assistance of citizens to obtain the services of C. Wirt as instructor and leader,
who has had eighteen .ears experience
as band musician. On a basis of $30 per
month subscription from citizens and a
like amount from band members it is
possible to retain Mr. Wirt. The band
assets amount to $332.65. Private owned(
inslruments by members equal that amount. In 1911 oitizens subscribed $96.58,
since then the band has struggled along
on its own efforts. Total receipts to date
are $614.80, expenditure $598.20. t
T. J. McAlpin, of Summerland. was a
visitor to Mrs. Young, Billiter Ave., this
week.
K.V. ACTIVE IN PASS
CONTRACTORS IN
COQUIHALLA
BAILWAY POINTS.
Tenders for the construction of the nn-
finish.d link of the Kettle Valley line
across Hope mountain have been invited
by President Warren. A number of large
railway contractors are said to have been
notified of the company's plans and will
tender for the work. Contracts will probably be let at an early date as a number
of firms have already inspected the route.
This section will complete the link between the coast aud Boundary district,
furnishing direct railway connection, is
to be used jointly by the Kettle Valley
railway and the Great Northern. It extends from the Coquihalla summit to
Hope.
Friday, 2nd inst. was, according to
very definite report, the day fixed for receiving tenders for the grading contracts
on the Kettle Valley railway from Hope
to Otter Summit. Workmen are gathering in and round Hope, having been told
by contractors for whom they have formerly worked lo hold themselves ready
for a start at short notice.
The Burns survey party is now near
Peterson's ranch on Summers creek locating line towards Aspen Grove. The
Stevens party is also locating near
Aspen Grove. No indications of con
tracts to be let are yet in sight for that
portion of the line located from Osprey
lake westerly to Semerads.
M. Dundon, who has been in charge of
the track laying of the C. N. R., has accepted a similar position with the K. V.
R. and left on Wednesday for Merritt.
He will begin at once the work of laving
the track on the grade already construct'
ed from the Loop to the Summit.
PERSONAL
Miss Kundson left last Thursday on a
visit to her sister at Nelson.
Dr. T. C. Campbell, recently of Victoria, B. C, graduate of Trinity College,
Toronto, Ont., has arrived in Princeton
and opened office in the Howse block.
The doctor and his wife come from the
celebrated county of Bruce, Ont., and
will make Princeton their future home.
Both are delighted with this country, its
climate and prospects impressing them
very favorably.
Miss Scott, late teacher in Princeton
public school, is visiting friends at Enderby and at the coast.
The family of J. H. Day  arrived   from
Nottingham, Eng., on Monday  last  hav
ing sailed from Liverpool on the 19th  of
July.    Mr. Day and son have been here
about a year and are now joined by  Mrs.
Day, a son and two daughters, the whole
family being a welcome addition to the
population of Princeton and our western
social life.
MissPavey, who has been with her
sister Mrs. Wilson for the past eighteen
months left for Vancouver on Wednesday.
Mrs. Daly of Keremeos was in town
yesterday and reports Geo. Allison, accidentally shot in the foot last week as

Mrs. M. S. Wilson left for St. Thomas,
Onto on Wednesday having been summoned there by the death of her mother.
She will be absent for some weeks. In
her bereavement the sympathy of many
friends here will go out.
Mr. and Mrs. C. Henderson, of the Otter Flat Hotel, Tulameen, were in town
last Wednesday.
O. D. Barnett has begun regular auto
service between Princetou and way
points to Merritt. His car is one of the
finest on any road and he is a safe driver.

TABDY LEGISLATION
The bill to abolish plural voting at_th_
elections in the British Isles passed, 'its
third reading in the House of Commons
after a motion to reject it had been defeated, 293 to 222. This bill passed its
first reading, April 8. 303 to 107. Jt embodies the principles of 'one man, one
vote.' It is but a part of a sweeping
franchise reform, proposed by the government a year ago, by which suffrage
would have been made universal. The
bill was introduced, but was withdrawn
last January, when the Speaker of the
House of Commons ruled that the clause
granting the vote to women could not go
in as an amendment.
USES FOB SAWDUST
Former Waste Product now Extensively Employed.
Not so very long ago about the only
real use anyoue had for sawdust was for
packing. That was wheu small local
sawmills were more common, and the
amount of this waste form of wood was,
or at any raie appeared, comparatively
small. Now, when the tendency is to
consolidate these into large mills with a
capacity of several hundred thousand feet
of lumber per day, the daily waste in
sawdust is seen to be enormous and much
experimenting is being done to discover
new methods of utilizing it.
Perhaps the most promising venture in
sawdust utilization in this country is the
manufacture of ethyl (or grain) alcohol.
The sawdust is treated with sulphuric
acid under suitable conditions, resulting
in the formation of sugar, which is then
fermented to produce alcohol. Several
plants have been erected to produce al-
chol from wood   in   this   manner,   and,

A forest fire broke out last Friday about
noon near the track ofthe V. V. & E. below Allison. Great volumes of smoke
summoned the attention of fire warden
R. Soutter and he quickly arrived on the
scene with a force of fire-fighters, assisted
by railway section men. Chief warden
Coulthart was on the Ashnola cruising at
the time of the outbreak. It is supposed
the fire originated from the trains psssing
about 11.20.    The damage is light.
J. A. Osborne, wife and family, left last
Friday for Blairmore, Alta., having completed his engagement   with   the   B. C.

As citizens and   neighbors  Mr. and Mrs.
Osborne will be missed for their generous
help and kindly interest in all   that pertained to the welfare of the people. They

The present season will probably show
half a million imigrants, according to
John Hoolahan of the Dominion irrigation department. 'The stream has been
a steady one this year,' said Mr. Hoolahan, 'and we are well satisfied with the
class we are getting. The number of deportations are kept at a low figure, because the examination now instituted
upon the other side, in addition to this
side, is a rigid one.' How many of these
immigrants will be invited to come to
Princeton?
RAILWAY TO WENATCHEE
There is no sign of procrastination   in
the process of construction on   the   Oroville-Wenatchee branch, and  indications
at the present time ensure the operation
of trains between  the   two   points   at   a
much earlier date than was promised   by
the railroad officials   when   tracklaying
commenced in the spring.   On the 5th of
August the  construction   crew   working
between   Wenatchee   and   Chelan Falls
will be removed to Oroville,   no   matter
as to what point on the south   end   steel,
has been laid, aud on the iotL  the force
will commence putting   down   iron   between Opbir and Pateros.     The   bridge
gang is rushing the bridge across the Okanagan at Ophir, and false work   will be
pijt in for the passage of trains.    On   the
15th of September the mixed   train   now
running between Oroville and Okanagan
will be  operating   through   to   Pateros.
After that it   will   require   only   a   few
weeks working at both ends to close   up
the gap between Chelan Falls   and   Pateros.    Bp the time snow flies there should
be a regular train service   between   Oroville and Wenatchee.—Oroville   Gazette.

WHY HAED TIMES?
Business conditions jjis. the large
cities and throughout the country
generally show no signs of revival.
That'hope eternal' of which the
poet sings seems now to be about
all that can be relied upon to save
.the.situation fr<)in panic or financial
vcrash. A great many reasons are
advanced for the depression now
falling upon the land. The European war is made the scapegoat for
most of our financial ills, it-being
alleged that the peasants of the
fighting nations and neighboring
ones have drawn deposits from
banks and put them in the proverbial old lady's stockings, salted them
down so to speak. The financial
editor of Star takes no 'stock' in any
of the ostensible reasons originated
for the purpose of concealing the
real reasons of squander and wild
speculation. Kver since the historic
famine in Egypt there have been
periodical depressions. No one
seems to know from whence they
come or whither they go. Hard
times follow in the wajk.e of good
times just as naturally as the lean
years follow the fat. The redacteur
as well as many other good people
£as felt the stress and pinch of dull
days, has known what it is to be in
a strange land stricken with that
emptiness of pocket; and stomach
that put a man on his best mettle.
A man may lack ^he coin to ride in
a comfortable ear,.but.he is rich in
independence and.afetrue spirit of
Adventure iCfiettakes a ticket via
the turnpike and trusts to good
luck for a stray chicken or other
bird. It is good once in a while to
meet the wolf pf want and struggle
.with him for the mastery. From
the ranks of the poor were -evolved
the presidents of great repuhfig^,j
big companies and institutions.
The master minds of eve£y age
sprang from the manger, the tinker
shop, tjilr'fairm, the cobbler's den
and other lowly birthplaces. To be
honestly poor is no disgrace. The
philosophy of poverty teaches economy, thrift, perseverance and self-
reliance. Wealth and luxury have
no power in themselves to make
men great Industry, labor and
the absence of injurious habits are
essential for the rising  person. . A
great deal of the difficulty now ex-
jsearieuced by the scarcity of money
is due to a lack of perspicacity on
the pajft of the companies and large
capitalists. Instead of a cheese-
paring picayune economy, now is
the time, d uring depression to carry
out improvements and reproductive
works. Instead of discharging
thousands of men, thus intimidating the monied institutions, these
companies might well forego dividends temporarily and avert a crisis
by repairing and improving properties. In the final solution of the
problems of depression and stagr.a-
jjjjLpjjLj- wiH be found necessary in
the preservation of any financial
equilibrium to operate by the government all public utilities and thus
guarantee to the employees the
day's ,wjage.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
O, what crimes are committed in
the names of patriotism and religion. History affords some striking
illustrations of callow hypocrisy
practised by characters who boasted
of their patriotism or their religion
in order that they might persecute
those who honestly expressed a differing opinion. The ranting re-;
ligeuse or pseudo patriot assumes
an air of superiority and thrusts his
ideas upon those whom he poses to
lead. 'Coward' and 'heretic! are
the words used by them toward
those of independent thought and
action. No sensible man would1
ever boast of his mother love or
parade his religious belief. Love
for mother is too sacred and love of
country too dear to be loudly boaat-
ed of. Yet it is observed in certain
ofthe press of Canada that,§hey or
their party have a monopoly of all
the love of country going, they are
the only Simon pure patriots because of their flag flapping and yelping loyalty. Beware of the man
who flaunts his religion or patriotism. Some low, ulterior motive,
prompts him and when he is weighed found wanting. Tolerance, and
respect for a fellow subject's honest
opinion are indicative of the broad
mind, the gentleman and true citizen./.
The name of the villain Cipriani
Castro leaves a bad taste in one's
mouth and that is why Star dubs
him. 'Castor Oil.' He is stirring up
trouble again in Venezuela having
escaped with a whole skin out of
his first racket. This influential
weekly has no desire tp create international complications but it
would suggest to Uncle Sam oj:
Woodrow that immediate steps be
taken to pacify Mexico and hang
Castor Oil. If the Monroe doctrine,
means anything it means that U.S.
is responsible fjMj tii-V good conduct
of its greaser neighbors. If order
is not preserved the Canadian navy
should make a demonstration in
southern waters.

When you have contracted a severe
case of cramps, colic, pain in the bowels with dysentery, you can be pretty
sure there is a pocket of fermented
food somewhere in the stomach that
is causing all the trouble.
An important point is to avoid contracting the bowels too suddenly.
This is a real danger in cases of this
kind and too often causes a lot of later
trouble.
We do not know of anything so
good as Nyai's Wild Strawberry Compound. This can be had both in's^flsi
quid and in tablet, and preference
should be given the liquid if conven-
ijftttv This remedy is highly antiseptic in its action and contains no opiates, yet it gives prompt relief without the 'dope' effect.
We are always careful to be sure of
the goods when we  state  our  prefer
ence and recommend a  certain rem-
edyto you.    We carry a full   iine   of

Try a Star Special.
John T. Burns Advocates Dry Farming to Solve^frobd ScaMty.
' Tn6 problem of agriculture is not altogether a matter of crops. The commercial developme^tof the nation depends upon its proper and prompt solution. There, are social and moral re
suits to be cousidered. The father and
mother of the growing boys and girls
must realize that there is a duty before
them in the education of the young folks
into a new"and higher plane of life—not
away from, but upon the farm.
Unless every acre of arable land is
made'to produce the maximum financial
return, and that reasonably soon, the
hardships brought upon the breadwinners
of this continent by the rapidly increased cost of living and consequent social
unrest, will force a revolution more serious and far reaching than auy recorded
in the history of the century.
The one great trouble with our agricultural departments, both in Canada
and the United States^'4S._h"at they do
."not get down to the heart of the problem
_>f Irrigation—the service of water—the
Investigation of moisture value. Instead,
they spend their time in experimenting
with engineering problems. As for the
hard-headed farmer, he should-Be taught
that water is water, no matter whether
we measure it through'a ditch, catch it
in God-given showers, or find it under a
dnst blanket, where we have stored it by
good tillage, j
Business Management Tells.
The best farmer i the business farmer;
the man who tills his soil and handles
his crop with the same careful attention
to details, causes and effects that characterises the successful man at the head of
a great commercial institution or banking establishment. Farming, in the true
sense, is no longer mere slavery on the
farm. The farm is a business instinution
and the profession of farming is __. re-'
spectable as any phase of commerce—in
fact, upon the farmer depends the manu-
factuier, jobber, merchant, banker and
broker.    He is _tJ_?'source of supply.
The farmer must, Tike the merchant,
study elements oj^orpfit and loss, eliminate causes of loss and increase profitable
departments and ciops.
The study 'of dry farming __ properly a
i>art;6f the work.ojf. this irrigation congress, as, while the engineering problems
which you have been discussing are im- •
portant, a much more important phase of
the subject is an exact understanding of
how to secure the maximum result with;
the minimum amount of water." Over-irrigation i§ as dangerous^, as under-irriga-
tion; in fact we consider it more so. The
plant can use only a certain proportion of
food in solution; more than that becomes
detrimental. The pla__£thtives best
when it receives only the required, amount of moisture. Excessive irrigation
makes the-root bed too wet and too cold
and retards plant develoSMent.
> 'There is a ijreat tendency among the
older type of irrigation;Jarmer to use all
the water obtainable merely because he
has a right to it. Some1 farmers in my
home State OtCi^lpradq, I am,sj_re, would

•USES FOR SAWDUST
 ___>m____se,_. ..
though there-are some difficulties still to
b4 overcome,' the tiitiniate succesfc bf  the
process on a commercial scale is assured.
jSawdust has been   successfully   manufactured into briquets for fuel for  a" con-
1  si^erable time in Europe by a  very sitn-
pt'e process.   The shavings and   sawdust
arSelfirst steam dried, the water contained,
in-.the wood being thus   evaporated   and.
th§ resin almost liquified,    The   sawdust
isahen compressed under heat into   bri-
quets'of the desired   size,  the contained
resin' acting as a binder.   A firm in Van-
1 co'uvtr is engaged in   a   similar   line   of
rnknitfacture, the sawdust being compressed fnto a cylindrical tube where it is cut
in.0'short lengths by a   revolving   knife,
emerging in the form   ol  small,   round
brjauets.   These briquets   are   clean   to
handle, easy to kindle and leavp very little'-"ash.
In .England sugar is manufactured-on a
commercial scale by treating sawdust in
closed retorts with weak sulphurous acid
udder high pressure.   In Austin, Texas,
alsp a plant is being built to manufacture
stock food from sa_&dust."by a somewhat
similar process.   The tar, pitch and  turpentine are removed  from   the   sawdust
leavi'tig only sugar and fibre to which   is
added forty per cent, of cottonseed meal.
The fixture is sold for fattening   cattle.
jT.wo and one-half parts of deal sawdust
mixed with two parts sand and one part
cejnent make a warm long-wearing and
sound-proof floor, to which  carpets   can
bejiacked with less injury than to aboard
flojor.and which has the advantage  over
a <|etnent floor   in   being   more   elastic.
T__§j_ qualities should win an  extensive
use for this form of floctfing,   which   has
the additional advantage that it  can   be
sta'ined to harmonize with interior finishings by the addition of color to the mix-
tuje? while in a semi-liquid state.
The sawdust of certain kinds of wood
is'used in considerable quantities by
manufacturers tor metal polish, for pack-
in^for meat curing, for making safety
explosives,, and composition novelties,
and- for1 fibre and pulp manufacture.
Patent cleaning powders for use on carpets '{arid rugs codsist principally of saw-
cg^t^Jightly moifetened by some cheap
mineral oil.

Stable
ty of water the Greely farmer, using the
usual business methods and looking for
quick profits, has forced his crop by over-
irrigation, has soured thousands of acres
of once splendid land, and is losing the
reputation for his product. It will take
years of careful work to rebuild the soil.
Sappers ofthe Soil.
There are many ways of robbing the
soil and washing out the humus until the
land is devoid of plant food and has developed either acidity or alkali that can
be classed as soil robbery. Soil can only
retain a certain percentage of moisture
and too much water will destrot the nitrogen, and as nitrogen is the plant food
element that the western soil is most de-
ficent in, its loss is a serious matter. If
washed below the feeding ground of
plant roots it is lost.
Too much water clogs the surface soil
*bv cementing the particles together and
thus produces puddling, which all recognize as very injurions to soil; it crowds
out air and lessons the action of the bacteria in making plant food; lowers the
temperature ofthe soil and often seeps
out on the land lower.down and injures
or even destroys it for agricultural purposes.
In the irrigation districts especially in
the north, the retarding of plant growth
is costly. Indeed, growth snould be fostered. Water is property; a public commodity, a public necessity, and no matter how much a man may own, if he
takes more than he has need for, he is
taking that which belongs to others.
Why put more water in the soil than can
be used by the crop.
Dry-Farmed Grains Best,
■   Dry farmed wheats show a higher percentage of protein   and   milling  gluten
than wheats under irrigation or excessive
rainfall.    A   large   number   of   milling
tests made in 1910 by the  Russell-Miller
Milling Company of Montana,  show   an
average of 7^" p.c. more   milling   gluten
in   dry-farmed   than   irrigated    wheats.
The average protein contents  of  United
States wheat is 12 p.c.   grown   unaer all
conditions, while in Utah in 1910  winter
wheats grown under  dry-farming   meth-
oths tested 16 17 p.c.   and durum wheats
17.14 p.c. of protein.    In England in 1893
an exceedingly dry year, the wheats tested 12.99 p.c. in protein while the protein
content in the wet year of 1894 averaged
9.81.    The United States Department   of
Agriculture    reports    that     dry-farmed
wheats in 1910 averaged 14.4 p.c. in   protein as against 11.94 p.c.   for   the   wheat
from the^humid districts of the   country.
