MINES AND MINING
Whipsaw Camp Shows High
Grade Silver-Lead Ore
from Assay. /
Placer Gold Found on Louis Creek near
Kamloops—Metal Prices Firm
and Satisfactory.
Knight & Day, owners of the Luck
Pair al Whipsaw camp, are well satisfies
with the exposures of galena which thev
have uncovered in the work of develop
ment. Their ore dump shows unmista
able evidences ot mineral wealth, the in
dications all pointing toward the mother
lode as the tunnel work progresses. A
lecent assay received from the government fcssay office at Victoria gives the
following values from a sample of galena:
Gold, .05; silver, ozs , 30 per ion; lead, 70
per ceut., or a total value of about $85.75.
These figures were obtained from a random sample assayed by D. E. Whitaker,
assistant provincial government assayer,
and are wholly reliable.
E. P. Wheeler, the well known mining
man of Conconully, Wash , and who has
a fine copper property at Friday creek, is
in town for a few days.
Kamloops and the South Cariboo district are greatly excited over the discovery of placer gold at Louis creek, half a
mile away from the Canadian Northern
railway, and thirty miles from the city.
As a result a French Canadian cook em
ployed on railway construction work on
the Canadian Northern line, who followed surface indications toward the
source of the creek and staked one thousand feet of the richest section of the
find, will presently be a rich man.

West Kootenay has 55 shipping mines,

The sale of the United Empire coa1

land, is in progress with Toronto and Cobalt capitalists. The United Empire is

Princeton.
line  of least  resistance,   possibly an old
deer trail.
H .Road builders for the provincial government are busy constructing a strip of
highway 90 miles in length and 40 feet in
width between Hope and Princeton, which,
when completed, will be one of the best
iu the province. The road begins at a
point on the old trunk road four miles
east of Hope and follows the west bank
of Silver creek for a considerable distance It crosses a range of mountains
on a grade of which is not over two per
cent., in fact it rises 1900 feet in 19 miles.
The easy grade, the superb scenery, and
the splendid construction of the road will
make it easily one of the most popular in
the province. Thus far there are about
nine miles completed—four miles out of
ope and five miles out of Princeton.
MOVING PICTURE SHOW.
The Piinceton Picture Show, Dignan
Bros., pioprietors, was opened Saturday
night to a full house, standing room only
being available for late arrivals. Barring
some minor mechanical interruptions,
and even the time thus spent was utilized
in comical imitations of rooster crowing
_nd bird singing, the crowd making full
allowance for the difficulties of first per
formances, there was preseuted a pro
gram of amusing and instructive pictures
The range of subjects included the historic Napoleon dowu to the henpecked
and sometimes erring husband Mr. Bowser. The building is well adapted for the
purpose intended and will rank with the
best show houses in the country. It
will appeal to the amusement seeking
public and is sure to be well patronized.
THE TRUNK ROAD.
Anyone traveling over the completed
portion of the interprovincial road will
bless the man or government that con
ceived the idea of building such a fine
highway. Low grades and even bed,
with a width that will permit safe passing
of two vehicles at once.sEtrike the traveler as he contiasts these with the old
narrow gauge roadways that followed the
SIMILKAMEEN  HOTEL.
This enlarged and improv d hotel with
its new furnishings and equipment is
ready for the accommodation of the public. It will prove to be a real home from
home to travelers and visitors to Princeton. The building is 66x100, two
storeys, contains 32 bedrooms, a reception room, sitting room, baths and toilets,
besides a large barroom, office, reading
room, sitting room and dining room on
the ground floor Under the management
of Summers & Wardle the Similkameen
hotel will continue to be attractive and
comfortable for guests. The growing
b isiness of this house demanded the
large expenditure just made, which is
sure to be appreciated by the public.
The building operations were canied out
by Wilson Bros., contractors, decorators
and painters.
Cash talks, and the P. Burns Co., L'd,
have learned bv years of experience that
it is the most potent agency for healthy
!: business yet discovered, and will adopt
the strictly cash method on and after the
15th, inst. In Nelson and other cities, a
strong movement is in progress aiming at
cash instead of credit system.

No Construction  in  Coquihalla Pass
Pass TJniil Next Spring by
the K.V.R.
The Kettle Valey railway survey party, in charge of Mr. Buck, has been ordered to move to Kelowna to complete
some work -in connection with the pro
jected line from Vernon to Penticton.
The fact that location of the K. V. in and
around Princeton has been discontinued
would indicate that no grading will be
done in tbe immediate future.
Although the contract for construction
on the V. V. & E. was reported as let to
Guthrie & Co.. there has not been any
move leading to a confirmation of that
report. So far not a blow has been
struck.
The old, old policy of delay hangs like
a pall over the Similkameen. It seems
that both the Great Northern and C. P.
R. are in a deadlock or sparring for time.
C. J. Seymour, Kettle Valley engineer,,
has  arrived   in   Hope and will spend the
winter  in  surveying the route in Coqui

J. J. Warren   and   Chief Engineer McCullough were in Princeton recently, go

EPISTOLARY.
Editor Star—Sir: I thought you
would like to have a few lines from me,
and to know that I am enjoying my holiday very much, although the weather
has been most unsummerlike, cool and
showery most of the time—scarcely a dav
without a shower, sometimes very heavy.
I hope you are all well and that Princeton is progressing. I see from the Star,
which I am glad to get, that the railway
construction, etc., proceeds as slowly as.
"ever.
For the month of August I have taken
charge of one of the parishes in this, my
old town of eleven or twelve churches.
It is quite a large, nice church, seating
about 600 people, and there is a 3-manuaI
organ and a good surpliced choir. I have
services at 8 and na.ni. and 6:30 p. m»
every Sunday, aud last Sunday another
one at 3 p. m. Besides this, I am acting
chaplain to the county hospital and have
services there also, at 5.15 p. m., so that
my Siinday services are quite heavy. I
visit all the sick five days a week and
have prayers in every ward in rotation.
There are about 70 in-patients just now.
The church has an honored place, and is
welcomed in this work, and I am glad
of it.
During July I was at a countrv village
parish, eight miles away, taking the duty
whi.e the vicar was away for his health,
and I acted there as chaplain to the
county workhouse, four miles distant, and
had to drive there every Sunday for service at 9:30 a. m., as well as take the service at the church. I went also in the
week and visited the aged and bedridden
sick and also had service in the beautiful
chapel, which was always well filled with
the inmates and officers, altogether between two and three hundred always
came. You will see, therefore, that I am
not idle,  and (what was very acceptable

Mrs. Pazolt and C. DePas leave this
week for England after a pleasant visit of
*ime mouths with J. A. Freeman and
family. Mrs. Pazolt is pleased with the
country and hopes to come again.
Frank Chitty, the lightning press artist, who recently served an apprenticeship of a month in this office learning the
latest and most uptodate wrinkles in the
mechanical and editorial departments of
a modern newspaper, has started the
Molson 'Leader' at Molson, Wash. When
Frank left here he was supposed to have
an attack of appendicitis, but it turned
out to be an attack of independicitis, the
Leader being independent in political
creed and doctrine. The Leader looks
healthy and we congratulate Frank on
his salutatory, also wishing him independence throughout life.

PEAR   TURNS   TO   HATRED.
Editor Star—Sir: Is fear a baneful
teaching? Yes! Why? Because it turns
to hatred. What a pity! <Uter admiting
my letter was a good mixture of truth
and fiction, Mr. Jukes failed to show
wherein lay the fiction.
How unfor unate Mr. Jukes is when he
tries to justify his God for using eternal
punishment because man tries fear
against fellow man. It is not a very lofty
idea of God, is it? About on the level of
an untuto_ed savage. The average man
or woman who is a father or mother
would not permit a child of theirs to suffer agony for life if they could prevent it.
I know! Do you see the point, Mr.
Jukes?
With regard to my knowledge  of past
history,   might  I  remind Mr Jukes that
in my letter touching that period I mentioned  churches,   not  church.    He   evidently has reference to only one portion
of that period, as, say, the so called Chris-,
tiau   church.    Now,   trom what I   have!
read, first  one church   held sway,  then,
another,  and none of   them 'was at  all i
particular  as  to the meaus it used to ac-1
quire   power,    the   present   Established |
Church of England proving no exception J
to the rule. '
With regard to accepting inspiration of
the Bible  as  the word of God: Is it nut|
irue that for over a thous-rind years crimes I
innumerable  have been committed   and I
iustifled   by   priest  and   laymen   by tht .
Bible?    Even in our day we stie strife oi-
every hand on account of th.e interpreta
tion'of the Book.
Now, Mr. Editor, one question and 1
will finish. Will Mr. Jukes kindly answer
the following. If the Bible is the word
of God, why did not God whom you say
is omnipotent, reveal himself to us in
such a manner that all men would recognize it as such at once without anv teach-
l lg, and so avoid all strile and confusion?
Yours truly, Jno. Nathan.

An asset that is rarely considered
in estimating the resources of a
country is that which pertains to
its scenery. The attractiveness of
Princeton and districts is immensely

Princeton put within a few hours of
the coast.

and road houses will be necessary
for the convenience and comfort ot
visitors.    The wisdom of constructing tbe interprovincial road is also
i  apparent in the stimulus it will give
to mining and settlement along the
route.    Many a struggling mining
I camp  is  now  expectant  with the
i  new life to   be imparted by transportation. Mines of undoubted merit
j <now languishing and idle will leap
into  activity  and become revenue
I   and wealth producing.    The engi-
:   neering difficulties in building this
j   mountain road are simple.    Grade
and width must be such as to afford
speed, safety and convenience.    If
the engineer be left to his own good
sense and professional skill the road
will be direct and not wander hither
and  thither  to suit presumptuous
interests or persons.    The people of
British   Columbia  as  a  whole are
paying for the .construction of this
road,   and  its  route  must  not  be
needlessly deviated  or lengthened
one yard,  increasing  the expense
■ and sacrificing the interests of the
public thereby.    The   government
can  hardly make  any mistake in
pushing  on  the work to an early
completion.    The   expenditure   or
cost will not belessenedby lethargic
construction. Necessity tor the road
has been fully shown as viewed from
the sectional or district standpoint.
From   the   broader   or   provincial
view, the development and influx of
capital  and  money spending tourists will amply justify the govern-!
NOTES AND'COMMENTS.
Added to the high cost of food
comes  high  taxation and  a high
civilization.    The burden of maintaining the government; paying subsidies   to   railway  companies that
never live up to their promises and
agreements; providing education for
children and building roads, etc., all
tend to increase the burden of the
taxpayer.    Taxation that produces
best results and sits lightest on the
people is based on the principle that
every  taxpayer  should  benefit  in
proportion to the amount of taxes
he pays.    At present many anomalies exist  in the levying of taxes,
chief of which is in the valuation of
land   and   property.    The railway
companies are large beneficiaries at
the public expense,  yet proportionately they pay less than the poor,
struggling settler, tradesman or merchant.    The railway companies, all
but one, receive bonuses from the
people  amounting to  $10,000   per
mile,  yet their   assessment   would
not result in taxes one thousandth of
1 bat   amount.    The secret of satis
faction  lies  in the  equalization of
public burdens.    Satisfy the people,
the taxpayers, and  prosperity and
coutentment will follow.
With no intention of 'butting in,'
Star cautions some of the republican
boosters across the boundary that
there is such a thing as boosting a
good man to death. In 'varsity we
saw a freshman boosted so high
that when he came down his dearest, friends at the corners of the
blanket could not save him from a
thud that gave him a horrible black
eye. 'Save me from my friends' is
the secret wish of many a candidate.
The democrats are not boosting
Wilson more than is necessary so
be will win. Progressives and republicans must realize now that they
are up against a stone wall. A
change is always good, because it
gives the inevitable 'new broom' a
chance. Wilson is our man, and
we don't care who knows it!
A newspaper that prints the news
of the world every day excepting
Sunday without staining its pages
with a word or suggestion of the
'yellow,' rehearsing crime or scandal or catering to the brutal, as in
prize fights, is worthy a place in
any home. The Christian Science
Monitor is a welcome visitor to our
table. So different from the average daily in clean expression and
thought. Everything to help upward and onward, not downward, is
found in pages of informing editorial, religious subject and general
news.   It is a model newspaper.

The Gurney-Oxford
I Enthusiast
The housewife who owns a Gurney-Oxford—who
has daily experience with it—who knows the way
it works—the economy and efficiency of it—is a
Gurney-Oxford Enthusiast.
The Gurney-Oxford Range is the sum total of 70
years experience in stove construction. It is a big,
up-standing, handsome stove, that works constantly
and unfailingly for its owner's satisfaction. It stands
guard over her interests, conserving her time and
energy, effecting a daily saving in coal, adding to the
household economy and increasing the pleasure which
comes from a smooth-running and well-ordered
household.
That's why she enthusiastically recommends the
Gurney-Oxford whenever the question comes up.
She wants her friends to learn, what she knows
to be a fact, that a Gurney-Oxford Range is a good
housewife's most valuable and cherished possession.

EPISTOLARY.
From 1st Page.
to me) I have received spontaneous testi
mony from tbe village people and the
workhouse people and, recently, this
.own congregation as to the helpfulness
of my ministratious This was not always
my fortune during my nineteen years'
work in Canada, and it helps a minister
wonderfully.
I have given addresses on Canada in
Lincolnshire and the Isle of Wight; also
here; which bslve aroused much inten st,
and have also got some needed help lor
our church works. Everybody is taking
a great interest in the great Dominion,
and they have a better knowledge now.
I was in London for a few days, but
with not much spare time. It was a
splendid sight to see the hundreds of
worshippers at St. Paul's cathedral and
the Abhey at the dail) morning and at
noon services, and the beautiful singing
is something to remember.
I  also  attended the annual meeting of
the B. C. Church Aid Society,  and heard
the Bishop.df London;  also. Bishop Pei
rin, late of Yictoria, and had a chat  with
the latter.    When  in Yorkshire, in Jui .,
I went, with my sister to a great missioi.
ary festival at York, and was  introduced
10 the archbishop at a crowded reception
You will see the character  of my activ .
ties and interests from this account,   but
between times I get about and ' view tht
landsc. pe"  of old   England,   in spite of
the clouds and damp.    I  hope to go this
afternoon   by train and climb the famous
Siretton hills, twelve miles away, but the
weather is very threatening.    I have seen
the Rtv. A. S. Cook, brother of 3'our Mr
Cook;  also,  the   latter's  two daughters,
who, I believe, are looking forward to returning to Granite Creek before long     I
have  not  yet   began   to plan my   returi.
trip,   but shall  have to decide about th's
before long now.    I  am glad to say I . m
keeping good health.
