MINING AT GRANITE.
The Adams-Weeks gold and platinum
dredger at Granite Creek has reached
that stage of its construction which permitted steam to be raised on Saturday
last. In about a week more there will be
a pleasurable awakening to the old mining camp after its long Rip Van Winkle
snooze. Then, the dredge will begin on
the bar opposite the poetoffice, working
up to the rim of the basin and down the
creek to its mouth. Old tailings will be
met with, but even in these substantial
values in platinum are expected, as the
early day miner paid little attention to
the "white gold," which sold from 50c
to $12 an ounce. Platinum is at present
wo.th about $33 per ounce.
THE CHILDREN'S HOME.
Captain Laid'aw of the Salvation Army,
Vancouver, was in town last week soliciting contributions for the Army's
"Home for Children" to be erected in
that city. There was a generous response
from citizens, generally, glad to have the
opportunity for identifying themselves
with so worthy a cause. Anything which
aims to provide the urgent needs of the
children cast upon the charity of the
world ought to have the support of everyone having a.spark of that humane feeling which should actuate all, even the
niggardly.
SOLD VALUABLE PROPERTY.
T. O. Coulthard received the gratifying
information last week that intending pur
chasers of his beautiful Sapperton resi
dence had finally tlosed the deal at
$7,000. At the same time he received the
rather discouraging news that the glass
factory, in which he holds consideiable
stock, had succumbed to financial stress
The ever varying fortunes of man have
not left him in the slightest degree discomposed for he has real estate here and
mines which are among the most promising in the country. Mr. Coulthard
expects to become a permanent resident
of this locality and has his household
furniture on the way.
OLD-TIMER TAKES A REST.
Charlie DeBarro is in town taking a
holiday after a long stretch of hard work
in hotel keeping at Granite Creek. He
has recently sold his hotel to Messrs.
Gillan and Marcott of Hedley for the
.substantial sum of $3000. He has built
a neat cottage at Granite with ample room
for two. and as dame rutr.or puts it, will
settle down to married happiness and
comfort. Mr. DeBarro is one of the few
early day remaining miners of Granite
Creek, his diggings there netting him
more than #30,000. He is of the opinion
that Granite has palmy days ahead as
a result of the gold-dredging industry,
the construction of the railway and the
manufacture of coke.
BRICK AND CEMENT
Fire and Brick Clays, also Fine
Portland Cement are
Found Here.
Nature Provides Liberally for Building of Large City—Brickyard
Now Making.
Another industry that gives reasonable,
expectation of success in Princeton is
that of brickmaking. It has long been
known that a good brick clay was to be
found in this section. Brick has been
made 'by different parties in sufficient
quantities to supply local needs. But
the cost, $50 per thousand, prohibited
the use of them in any but small quantities. When the cost of manufacture can
be brought to within limits which will
enable builders to use them in construction then there will, in all likelihood, be
a read j" and increasing demand for brick
There is also fire clay and cement in and
around Princeton. A good quality of fire
clay has been found in close proximity
to the coal mined by the Vermilion Forks
Co. Cement has been found at the
Roanie mine, which J. O. Coulthard has
had tested and found to contain the proper ingredients. It is right on the line
of the V , V. & E. and will be readily-
shipped. With brick and fire clay, stone,
cement, limestone and timber there is no
lack of building material in this section
of the Similkameen.
L. P- Gow, of Rossland, is preparing
to engage in the manufacture of brick.
For that purpose he has bought lots on
Harold Ave., near the Tulameen river
and will soon have a kiln burning.
TOWN AND DISTRICT
Prospects  Brighten with  Advance of Railway up
the Valley.
Permanent Residents Arriving—Rivers at Normal Stage—Weather
is Backward.
GIFT TO CHURCH.
L, W. Shatford.M.P.P., has very kindly
sent a donation of $25 to Rev. Mr.
Conn for the proposed new Presbyterian
church at Princeton. The ground on
which the building will stand faces Billiter Ave. between Bridge and Warren
streets. Mr. Shatford's gift is very much
appreciated and will receive due recog
nition from the managers and congregation.
THE ROSY FUTURE.
Thos. Sloan arrived back to Princeton
last Wednesday, having been to Montreal, Toronto and other eastern points, j
He saw no place he liked so well or that
had so bright future as Princeton. He
intends to 'settle down' in Princeton and
as if to emphasize that statement he is
fitting up his roomy house with a view
to . (The taletellers will kindly fill
in the rest of the sentence as the Star
has not that delicacy of expression which
only lips can convey.) Here's good luck,
Tom.
The triangular lot at the corner of Ver
milion and  Fenchurch   Avenues, (Lot I,
Llock   10)   has  been   recently  sold to a!
resident of Victoria.    Price not stated.

W. C. McDougall, now in Montreal
with his wife, writes 'riends stating that
Mrs. McDougall is quite ill, with slight

many friends here who will heartily welcome any word of a favorable turn in her
illness.

Uhler & Cox are hard at work on their
Five-Mile mining propositions, having
run in 40 feet on the Blue Ridge and 24

some very fine looking ore, the values
being chiefly in sulphides. In some recent samples there are spots of lead-gray
metal which may'contain big values.
C O French is at Welldo building a
'skyscraper.'
-Tom Sloan in estimating repairs to his
house finds that he will have to make an
outlay of about $20 for glass broken by
bad boys.
The weather has been somewhat 'Arc-
ticular' of late, in consequence of which
the flower and vegetable gardens are in
a backward state compared with last
year. So far no reports of damage to
orchards have been received.
Changes for ads in the Star must be in

BOTH ORE AND COAL.
Development on the United Empire
consists of open cuts and tunnels and
also shafts. A large amount of this work
is underground. The ore is copper carbonates, running in value from one to
ten per cent, cooper, and from a trace to
$4 per ton in gold and silver. A lot of
this ore is now lying on the dumps. In
addition to the ore the United Empire
includes coal deposits, a sample of which
analyzed as follows : Moisture, 15.80 per
cent; volatile matter, 23.75; fixed carbon, 41.42 ; ash, 18.93. Another sample
gave: Ash, 6.67, showing iron and burning to a yellow ash.
STAMPEDE TO NEW DIGGINGS.
An official report received at Victoria
from the new gold fields of north B.C.
by the Government states that 68 claims
have been located, covering almost the
whole of McConnell Creek. About 40
miners are at woric. The discoverers,
Jensen Bros., have sunk 32 feet without
reaching bedrock, at which depth the
pay was 40 cents to the pan. The daily
cleanup runs about #30 to the man. Provisions are scarce.    Flour is $75 per sack,.
COPPERS ARE ACTIVE.
From Butte, Montana, encouraging reports of the copper outlook have been
received. The Never Sweat, one of the
biggest properties of the Anaconda company, has resumed operations after a shut
down of eight months incident to the
slump in copper. The North Butte and'
East Butte companies have resumed, giving employment to a thousand men.

DUTY, AS GOOD CITIZENS.
Of political war there is no end
these electioneering days. Two
strenuous campaigns are now in
full blast, the touters and heelers
working full and over time. Ontario and Quebec have both set their
polling days for June 8th. These
provinces are each arrayed into two
great political camps manoeuvring
for position, ready to catch the popular vote by strategy, trickery; oratory, any means so long as victory
is  attained.
The Dominion elections are also
•drawing nigh. Although the day
has not yet been fixed it cannot be
many months until the batteries of
the Conservatives and Liberals will
belch forth hot shot, explosive bullets, rocklets and even mud—black
mud. In all the hubiib and excitement of the various battles it will
be the duty of every intelligent citizen to preserve a calm and thoughtful poise. He' will give his best
thought aud first consideration to
his country. To do this he must
first divest himself of all partizan-
ship and take that patriotic stand
which places his" country first and
party last.
He will ask himself: Is the government of the day administering
public affairs honestly, fairly and
wisely? Is the welfare of the people as a whole guarded and promoted, or are selfish and corrupt
motives the end and aim of the
ruling party ? On the principle
that too long in office breeds contempt and disregard of those who
place them there : Is it time for a
change ? Are the candidates of
clean, moral character, good business, capacit}', truthful, and with a
record for keeping promises ? Has
any of them attained wealth as a
result of political influence or as a
member ? These are questions that
every elector who aims at the purification of parliament and the honest administration of every department. Every voter who has the
respect of his home and the betterment of his country at heart will
choose the man most likely to reflect
credit upon.his constituency.
The man who dabbles in politics
for "what there is iu it" ought to
be disfranchised, and disqualified
from entrance into parliament. He
is the Judas of his party and country and sooner or later will betray
them. Relegate all such to the
political rubbish heap  and have no
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Neither Edison nor Gray, doubtless, never suspected, much less
intended, that their great invention, the telephone, would be made
the means of venting a line manager's personal animosity toward a
customer. And this kind of thing
is tolerated, connived at, winked at
and allowed by those who have it
in their power to stop it. This
state of things can exist only on a
government owned line—so much
for government ownership.

PRINCETON   BRANCH.
An  anti-cigarette  bill  has been
introduced into the Commons.    Its
object is to discourage  the sale and
manufacture of cigarettes for adults
and to prohibit the sale  of them to
5Touths of either sex.    The discussion of the bill by medical and other
members  elicited much interesting
information.    It  was said that cigarettes are  adulterated with a dope
whicii  produces  dilatation  of  the
pupil of the eye  and  causes  that
peculiar  look  of dreamy inaninity
so much prized by  certain fashionable devotees of the weed.    It was
pointed out that  their  widespread
use would lead  to  the physical degeneracy of the race  as evidenced
by the pale green look, shaky hand
and wobbling step of a  confirmed,
inveterate user. The doctors agreed
that  making a  chimney  of  one's
nose  was bad form and  injurious,
so much so that the  lungs   became
the color of a tan pair of shoes and
just about  as  leathery.    It  is proposed by  the   bill  to  stop  youths
from   becoming  mental  wrecks by
the  'cig'   process,   to which every
parent will say, Amen !

At this time of year a great deal
of "setting" or sitting, as the grammarians prefer, is going on. The
House is sitting at Ottawa, the old
hen is setting in a barrel, someone
is sitting on a 'feller's' knee, the
sun is setting on a hill and a commission of investigation is setting
on the department of Marine and
Fisheries : Now why cannot a committee of inquiry set or sit on the
management of the telephone line ?
If well sat upon this line would

Mr. Cannon of the Adams Weeks Gold
and Platinum Dredging Co, Granite

May 27   1908
SHORT AND PITHY.
The most unfortunate being in this
■world is tbe one who hardens his heart
to those deserving charity or those who
are down.
Narrow minded people are selfish of
their own comfort and pleasure. They
would not give up any habit or the indulgence of any appetite for the sake of
a fellow being. Being narrow they do
not help nor care for the general uplift of
humanity, so all they do is for their own
selfish selves and those who think and act
like them.
Helping the helpless is heaven's first
law.
The man who, when asked for a donation to anything abroad, whiningly replies that charity should begin at home,
probably squeezes king Edward until he
is black and blue in the face when he
■drops five cents in the. 'hat' for any pur-
jpose.   This man is not a Princetoman.
A clever doctor can induce a woman

pickles put on a sour face, she would
waste her form away to that of 'Slim

the vanity of woman.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology, geography, chemistr}1, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.

or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS: The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all

or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you ?

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
DEVELOPMENT NEEDED.!
It is announced that R. Marpole, executive assistant of the C.P.R., has gone to
England for the purpose of presenting
the resources of Vancouver Island to
English capitalists and investors. Mr.
Marpole has coal interests near Princeton that he might develop. It is the
large amount of undeveloped mineral
ground in this viqinity that retards the
growth and prosperity of Princeton.
Perhaps Mr. Marpole will do the Similkameen a favor by inducing some good
English capital to flow this way. In. any
case he should employ a few men to show
u,p his coal claim. *fy
