WHIPSAW IS MECCA
FOR INVESTORS IN
SILVEIHEAD
HINES AND MINING.
C. Cunningnam, of Seattle, and E.
J. Field, of Spokane, arrived in town
last Monday and went up to Whipsaw.
They will inspect the silver-lead
camp, being the gues.s of Day &
Knight. Mr. Cunningham is a large
individual mine owner and is interested in Alaska coal.
C. M. Snowden panned out two nice
gold nuggets of about 60c. and 40c.
value besides many grains of platinum and fine gold worth about $1.50
from six pans of dirt taken from the
Tulameen. Some day the well known
placers of this district will yield their
treasures to the modern dredge
owned and operated by enterprising
people.
E. Jacobs, of Victoria, B. O, mining
authority and special correspondent
for several mining journals, arrived
in town last Saturday and will visit
Voigt Camp, Copper mountain and
Leadville.
Charlie Day and E. P. Galliac went
up to Whipsaw camp last Saturday to
the Knight & Day mineral properties.
Work will be resumed on the Lucky
Pair on which considerable develop
ment and exploratory mining has been
already done. The indications on this
silver-lead proposition are very promising and has attracted the attention
of experts. /"
It is characteristic of periodsyrbf
financial depression, that large and
small investors turn from real estate
and commercial investments to mining, and at the present time conditions are particularly favorable for
a revival of general public interest in
the industry, especially as some of
the most important British Columbia
properties are on the dividend paying
list.
Jas. E. McCauley is working on the
Trachite, Copper mountain, and ha1
splendid showings of ore. He has done
a lot of work in recent years on the Reco.
LEADVILLE CHUNKS
Leadville, June 16.—I am sorry to report that the work on the Indiana Adit
has crossed off the ore. The fissure at
the surface is branched and the men
followed a joint crack instead cf the
main fissure, result now, no ore.
Work is progressing on the Treasure
Mountain property satisfactorily.
Mr. Taylor, of P. Clark's company, has
men cleaning out the pits on these properties.
Reilly and Jensen have a good prospect
in the Carbonate. The lime gangue
shows some argentite 87 percent silver
besides galena and zinc blende.
John Blackburn has had his prospector,
W. Waddell, helping J. C. Reilly to cut
out a trail up Sutter creek, a distance of
three miles, to the North Star claim, ore
of the Ross claims now held bv Clark.
W. Waddell will continue the trail on
from there lo Ranger basin.
The officials aud citizens in general are
pleased with the progress being made by
the road gang working towards Leadville.
We are all coming down Dominion
Day.
SCHOOL MATTERS
The approach of the annual school
meeting and the necessity of filling
a vacancy on the board of school trustees, together with the engagement
of two new teachers, will cause all
interested in school matters to take
notice. The public school is always
increasing in the number of pupils
and its importance is enhanced from
this and many other matters of detail in management. Strict economy
without impairing the usefulness of
the school is necessary, and whether
this is effected in the purchase of
needful supplies or the salary of a
teacher, the taxpayer will appreciate
any effort to lighten his burden. From
the public schools report issued this
year the following are a few of the
salaries paid in places similar- to
Princeton: White Rock, monthly salary, $56.66; Rosedale, principal, $70.-
00; second, $55.00; Sandon, $70.00;
Greenwood, $70, $75, $125 to B. A.
male principal; Hatzic, first, $60, second, $55; Keremeos, $70; Kaleden,
$60; Okanogan Falls, $60; Fairview,
$70; Tulameen, $73; Coalmont, $85.
The attendance of scholars at Princeton is about 85.
Miss Elsie M. Wier, of Tulameen, has
been engaged for the ensning year for
/the first division at a monthly salary of
$75, and Miss Jennie E. O'Brien, of Alberta, will teach the second division at a
salary of $70 per month, joth have first
clffss a. C_ certthc..l$_. Compared with
last year the saving in salaries will
amount to about $125.
D. B. Falkner, inspector Canadian
Bank Commerce was in town on official business this week.
R. S. Ross, formerly on the staff
of the bank of Commerce, here, was
in town Monday renewing old acquaintanceships.
Miss F. Waites, of Reading, Eng.,
sister of Mrs. N. McFadden, is visiting her now.
Miss Olding, formerly teacher in
Nelson public schools, has gone to
the coast prior to resuming her profession at Grand Forks.
Apple trees loaded with young fruit
and all shrubs and vines in splendid
bearing condition is the state of the
garden belonging to Hugh Hunter.
Vegetables are also in the pink of
condition.
The moving pictures at the Princess
draw good houses and showgoers
generally are pleased with the inexpensive entertainment provided. The
repetition by request of 'The Battle
Hymn of the Republic' showed the
striking adaptation of illustration tc
a hymn that is still a great inspiration to all who love freedom and liberty. The Princess is popular because it caters to public tastes.
Showers of rain and blessing— the
hills never looked prettier in their
garment of purest green.
CROP PROSPECTS FINE
SAWMILL SOON
! TO CUT
TOWN AND  DISTRICT.
The first cement to be made in East
Princeton will be next week.
The Similkameen Lumber Co., Limited, will begin the manufacture of
rough and dressed lumber as soon
as the machinery can be started up
Waddell and F. Layton are the practical members of the company and
will operate the mill now located on
China creek. Lumber is in considerable demand and the complaint of
builders is the lack of immediate delivery for their special requirements.
A sawmill is needed.
Mrs. W. S. Stains arrived last Saturday from the south and will become
a resident of Princeton with her husband.
Wilson Bros, have nearly finished the
eight roomed cottage for Kirkpatrick &
Malone.
Strings of trout weighing 5 and 6 lbs
are caught in a few minutes on some of
the creeks.
Messrs. Hog, Bunbury & Co. real estate
brokers of Kamloops, are establishing
agencies of the parent business  in towns
not be forgotten as a social and economic
stride toward the betterment of all classes-
of laborers. It will also not be forgotten
by the Married Men in their noble defence of their 'homes,' and their'fields'"
strewn with 'dead ones' dying for that
great civilizer and developer of young
humanity—baseball. The Singles played
fast and furious ball, smiting their foes
hip and thigh, finally closing the score
at 16 to 5. Among the players were the
former professionals, Dell Youug, Harry
Avery, Home McLean, Bert Russell, Col.
Sellers, Jes Rash, Jack Waddell, Slim
Frazier, Bitter Root, Tim O'Brien, Pete
Pascoe, Sam Gibson. Thorpe, Hughie,
Waddell, jr., Bolin, Johnson, Bromfield.
The spectators enjoyed the game fully
and were in nowise slow with appreciation. The Married Men want another
game and will probably get it. These
games are good practise and will put
some players in condition for the big
event on Dominion Day.
TEN YEARS AGO.

take a look around with the object of becoming settlers and investors.
Constable Pritchard is giving citizens
verv general satisfaction in keeping the

decency and orderliness is always a'-
tractive to homeseekers and all respectable persons.
There is a special charming fragrance to the lilac which brings back
memories of 'down on the farm' and
old home. Mrs. Hagerman has put
us, the agricultural editor, underi
many thankful moods for boquets of
lilacs grown on her well cultivated
ranch on Onemile.

Superintendent Turner made an inspection trip over the district last
week and found that road building is
making good progress. With splendid
weather and plenty of laborers a record amount of construction is going
on. If the railway companies showed
up as well as .the provincial government there would be no chance for
a public kick.

TEA CONSUMPTION
Although it is difficult *o give a close
figure for the world's production of
tea, this is said to be over 1,127.700
(long) tons. That this is not exaggerated will be seen from the following data for production: India 1_3,-
200 tons; Ceylon, 85,000; Java. 22'..'00;
Japan. 19,400; Formosa, 11.600; China
(exportation), 53,600; Natal and An-
nam, 1,400 tons. To this is to bo added at least 36,000 tons of compressed
tea in tablets, which is put directly on
the market by Chinese firms. There
must also be taken into account ' c
tea produced in China and Japan and
consumed on the spot, this boing estimated to be 5 pounds or less per head,
co that for 342,000,000 inhabitants this
figures at 774,600 tons. For this reason China and Japan do not figurs
higher in the export list. i.t is estimated that the total consumuiion of
tea for the rest of the world is 3J .,000
oons.
More than a ton of bamboo poles
are being used in extensive tests for
concrete reenforcement by a Chinese
student in mechanical engineering and
naval architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Tn
China bamboo is plentiful and cheap,
while steel is expensive, and this student believes that there will be an enor-
iv.ous .development in the use of reen-
forced concrete if a practical method
of reenforcing with bamboo is • devised.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
The nobility of any country are the
men and women of good character.
Titles, like the spurious trade mark,
cannot add worth to an irfibecile W$
profligate.
So uncharitable and lacking in
honor are the mass of people that we
may accept the little good spoken of
neighbors as being absolutely true
and reject all that is reported to be
bad of them .  j
The person who seldom speaks th
good word about others has little that
is praiseworthy to be said of hinaself
or herself.
Never believe an evil report of anyone until you can verify it yourself.
Gossip is always unreliable.
"Wjiat we accuse others of is often
the very thing of which we are guilty.
Be sure you are clean and wholesome before looking for dark sp^ts
on your neighbors character.
To think aright is to live aright.
When tempted with impure, lying,
malicious, slanderous, jealous, proud
thoughts, say 'get thee out, satan,'
evil.
Sickness, ill health or disease are
the result of sin and the origin of disease is an invention of evil mind—new
medicines and new diseases are born
almost every day.
To be prosperous.happy and healthy
the mind must be kept clean and pure.
Guard well the door of thought.
Optimism produces longevity of
life;' pessimism shortens years' of existence and produces long faces. Be
a booster. Knockers are not long-
lived.
It is fatal to success to attempt to please
eyeryone, as the man in the fable did.
Even a newspaper editor cannot please
the unique and varied tastes of "myriad
readers. The best he can do is to make
certain of his ground, then stand ou it,
not heeding the whiffs of criticism lost
on the circumpolarair.
Never borrow trouble for you cannot hand it back.

MINING BUSINESS BRIGHT
The  upward  tendency  of metal
prices  together  with ready money
available for genuine mining propositions point to a revival of business
in   minerals   of   every description.
With   quite  all    the  metalliferous
mines working at high pressure and
those of the  coal  mines operating
at  all with  a tonnage  product   of
any  moment the whole industry is
healthier in British Columbia than
at any previous stage of its history.
At the present moment there is not
a discouraging or depressing factor
in the miuing outlook for the Similkameen  district.    The oldest producing  gold  camp  in the district,
Hedley, is verging on an era of expansion which is causing owners to
speak    most    hopefully.      Wealth
computed in many figures has been
divided among  stockholders of the
Hedley Gold Mining company  and
it is believed that some  of the surplus is soon to be reinvested in the
enlargement of the power and producing plants.     In  Princeton the
coal mining situation is unchanged
due  largely to   the  circumscribed
market  and   competition.     When
the Kettle  Valley connects Princeton  with the numerous Okanagan
towns  and the  V.,V. &. E.  gives
a  short line  to  the  Pacific  coast
and the naw Wenatchee  field, then
our coal will not  have unfavorable
or discriminative  transportation as
to rates and  distances.   The development and explorative  work carried  on  by  the  Columbia Coal &
Coke company  so  vigorously during the*past  three  years has been
stooped.    It is not  improbable that
this property will be  owned by one
of the subsidiary companies  of the
big railways, and in fact it is learned   from   an  authentic  source that
negotiations  are pending and that
vigorous  coal mining  may  be- expected  soon  at Coalmont.    Whatever results it is the hope of everyone that this splendid coking  coal
may  soon be  converted into coke,
thus encouraging   and   quickening
the erection of a  smelter for treatment  of the  abundant copper ores
of the district.
The B.C."Copper  Co.   has  been
steadily at work for about three
years proving and prospecting its
bonded properties at Voigt camp
and Copper mountain. From its
president, Mr. Erb, it is stated that
large ore bodies , have been found
and the values higher in proportion
to quantity than any ore owned by
the company. Five diamond drills
are in full commission testing the
ground under bond. It is reported
that the company will erect a concentrator at or near Ashnola. Already water power is applied for to
be used in some project, either concentrator or smelter, and for mining purposes. Kennedy mountain
with its rich and extensive copper-
gold ore deposits, Friday creek and
Roche river camps showing splendid ores ; Whipsaw rich in silver-
lead and an undoubted producing
camp as soon as wagon transportation is obtained ; Fivemile and One-
mile copper-gold ores in large and
varied deposits : the United Empire
coal mine now producing coal for
the cement works at East Princeton ; the Roany placer camp; the
Lambert gold-platinum placers on
Granite creek, now successfully
dammed for fiuming ; and the hundred other ore mining prospects,
placer diggings, and coal companies
give the reader an idea of the vast
mineral resources in this immediate
vicinity. Leadville and the Tulameen and Otter valley districts are
known to contain minerals in great
variety. The development of Leadville mining camp is progressing at
a rapid rate. Mining men with a
reputation for success behind them
are now interested in the district
and the necessary capital follows
them. Real" estate in the larger
cities is no longer characterized by
that seductive class of speculation
or gambling which marked the
earlier boom and investors are now
invading the somewhat exclusive
mining circles. Wildcatters have
been eliminated from the confiding
investor and now mining is on as
safe basis as that of the merchant
or manufacturer. Now the 'goods'
must be produced, in the past the
money was produced and the mine
found later, if ever.

The manufacture of cement will begin in a few
weeks. A permanent payroll and a growing town
with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
In the whirligig of recent events
the spectacular reached its highest
point and sentiment its most servile
phase when the kaiser received the
homage of the petty German kings
and princes, bowing and kissing,
and uttering the honeyed adulation
of slaves. Another 25 years of the
kaiser's military regime will prepare
the way for the republic and the
peace of the world.
It is said that the adoption of the
cash payment system throughout
the world would reduce litigation
cases by two-thirds and the number of liars to a small fraction. Is
cash or credit best ?

RELIGION THAT PROVES ITSELF
. At the annual meeting of the Mother Church, held this week, it was
stated by the clerk, in his report, that
the number of persons admitted to
membership in th4 church during the
year just closed was greater than
ever before in any year of its history;
also, that the number admitted at the
semiannual admission of members on
May 30 of this year was the largest
number received at any time since
this church was formed.
The full significance of these statements cannot be understood except
by those who realize that no one is
solicited to join this church, and but
few join it until' after they have been
healed of disease of some kind, or
have experienced such a moral or
spiritual regeneration as has completely 'changed their whole outlook
upon life. What effect, therefore,
such facts as these will have upon
those persons who have been unwilling to admit the stability and inherent strength of the movement founded by'Mrs. Eddy, is something with
which we have ho occasion to be concerned. All we need to know is that
we have proved for ourselves in
Christian Science the word of the
prophet Isaiah that "the Lord's hand
is not shortened, that it cannot save;
^neither his ear heavy, that it cannot
hear," and that divine Love is ready
to heal mankind when mankind is
ready to be healed. Jesus said that
to understand God is life eternal, and
so long as Christian Scientists endeavor to prove the truth of these
words, so long will the healing of all
manner of diseases continue to win
adherents to and strengthen the cause
in which they have enlisted.
Mrs. Eddy, when she formed the
Church of Christ Scientist, declared
that its object was to "reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element
of healing" (Manual, p. 17). That
this lost element of healing is being
reinstated, is proved by the verbal
testimony of thousands at the Wednesday evening meetings each week,
in addition to the testimpnies which
with their message of hope and healing enrich every issue of the Sentinel
and Journal. And not only this, but
the better idea of God which Christian Science is inculcating, is shown
in a letter received at this office,
from which we quote as follows:
"The Bible is a new book to me,
for Science and Health truly opens
up the Scriptures. In the struggle
with bad health I would often ponder
the Master's words, but at times I
would think that perhaps it was God's
will for me to suffer out my life, that
this was possibly the only way for me
to gain a home in heaven; but I am
thankful to know that God is too just
to send suffering onN His children.
What a grand thing it is to understand Gcd, instead of merely believ-
ir a on Him !"
It is comparatively easy, therefore,
to deduce from these premises a logical explanation of and reason for the
steadily increasing . membership of
the Church of Christ, Scientist;
namely, that through the apprehension and application of the teachings
of the Master, as interpreted in the
light of the text-book given us by our
revered Leader, mankind is being
freed from the bondage to sickness
and sin which has so long been accepted by the Christian church as a
part of the divine plan for the salvation of the children of men; and
that it is the high priviles-e of every
Christian Scientist to spread abroad
this healing truth, to become a living
epistle which may be known and read
of those with whom he comes in contact. Nor should we ever forget, in
our gratitude to the giver of "every
good gift and every perfect gift," to
be thankful for the Leader through
whose untiring labors for mankind
the Scriptures have again been opened up to us, and the promise of the
Master, "He that believeth on me, the
works that I do shall he do also," has
become a demonstrable truth. Remembering this, we may well recall
our Leader's counsel to "avail ourselves of the blessings we have, and
thus be fitted to receive more,, (Science and Health, p. 3); and for the
new year upon which we are entering,1
take for the church which she found
ed and nurtured the message of the
apostle Paul to the church at Colosse:

After months of careful experimenting, Mr. Charles E. Saunders, Dominion cerealist, has succeeded in producing a new kind of wheat, which, it
is believed, will be worth millions of
dollars i_r Canada. The new variety,
which is known as "Preludo," was obtained by cross-fertilization, 'of the
most hardy grades, and will not only
grow in the northern districts of Canada, but will ripen from eight to ten
days earlier than any of the others.
By producing grain that will stand
the cooler climate of the north, Mr.
Saunder's success will make it possible
to grow wheat on millions of acres in
[ the Northwest and other districts
! where the land has been previously
! undeveloped because no wheat plants
could stand the coolness.

SCIENCE AND INVENTION
In a magazine article published a
few years ago, Thomas A.- Edison is
reported to have expressed the belie-
that "inventiveness" can be taught if
the pupil has ambition, energy and
imagination. Recently, Dr. Alexander
Graham Bell in a public address on
the evolution of the telephone, told
how his father encouraged his sons to
invent and particularly how he, Dr.
Bell, before reaching the age of sixteen, had made some important discoveries in sound which, however he
found were not original but had bee .
described by Helmholtz; also how he
and his brother had completed a talking machine which would pronounce
the word "mama" so plainly that when
operated in the hall of the apartment
house caused some of the tenants to
open their doors to find out whose
child was crying. Dr. Graham Bell
told of many inter esUDg experiences
leading up to the telephone production
and repeated his frequent assertion as
to the important part played by his
familiarity with the science of sound,
telling how the sound and electrical
features of the telephone inspired
some one, Maxwell, probably, to describe the great invention as the re"
suit of a cross-fertilization of the
sciences.
Two Austrian watchmakers have
built a clock which receives its motive
power from a current of air blowing
upon a turbine-shaped wheel. The
clock is so simply built, that the current of air produced by a stove or
kitchen range is sufficient to make it
go. The air is brought to the clock
by a pipe fixed upon the wall. A very
strong current is reduced by a certain
clever contrivance which regulates the
speed of the works. This clock serves
a1 the same time as a ventilator. The
one built as a sample is installed in a
restaurant at Unymarkt and works
satisfactorily.
Quite an extensive scheme is on foot
to use water-power from the Weser
and other streams so as to operate
three electric stations and distribute
current over an area of 2,500 square
miles, reaching a population of 600,
000 The total cost of the enterprise
figures at $2,000,000 and over. Dams
are tc be erected across the streams
at Eder Munden, and Helminghausen
for supplying the three turbin plants
£g| these points, and all these pla.nts
together with their sub-stations will be
inter-connected upon the same network of power lines.
