MINES AND MINING.
E, F. Voigt, with J. M. Doyle and a
representative of the Amalgamated Copper Co , went to Voigt camp Tuesday.
Bonniver & Pouwels are at work on the
Red Star, Roche river, drifting on the
ore chute 300 feet from the tunnel entrance. Good ore is found all the way.
The main tunnel is in 400 feet.
From what appears to be reliable information the big seam of coal at Coalmont has been struck in the upper tunnel. This seam is intended to be tapped
by the main working tunnel which has
yet to be driven about a thousand feet.
This seam is of high grade coking quality
and is sixty feet thick. Tbe Columbia
Coal & Coke Co. has been at great expense to open up their mine and make it
a great industrial and producing factor
toward building up the town and indirectly the whole Similkameen district.
The success of the company, which all
hope for, means a very great impetus to
ore mining in this district.
Francis Glover has been appointed
coal mine superintendent for the Princeton Coal & Land Co. He was formerly
at Extension mine, Ladysmith.
Geo. Aldous has begun work on the
Argentine fractional north of Voigt
camp. There is considerable snow in
this section, which makes difficult the
road breaking.
The physical a'nd economic conditions
for mining and smelting in Piinceton
district are ideal. An abundance of sub-
bituminous and bituminous coking coal,
water power at every turn, timber, and
minerals in wonderful variety from plati-
nnm and gold placers to the elusive dia-.
mond in olivine, and most of the baser
ores, all these are present. With such
resources and facilities there ia.no reason
why this district should not advance rapidly in wealth and population.
I. N. Hallett, solicitor for the B.C.
Copper Co., arrived from Greenwood on
Monday.
A letter received from Hedley states
that the Hedley Gold Mines Co. reduced
the wages of miners and millmen 25 cents
per day from the ist inst. The reason
assigned is a jolt downwards in the price
of copper. There must be a mistake, as
the H.G.M. Co's product is only gold—
that filthy, yellow stuff. An explanation
is in order by the local'mineral'editor.
Jas. H°lden, superintendent of the
Princeton Coal & Land Co's mine, has
resigned.
All provincial voters' lists have been
cancelled from March 3rd and re-registration must be made by all voters by April
9th. It is done to cleanse the list of dead
men and absentees, the last time being
ten years ago when the lists were wiped
out.
Our parliamentary resume from Victoria this week is delayed until next week.
WAR OR PEACE ?
Replying to Gazette as to the stand of
Star on the naval policy it must be referred for answer to Nos. 50 and 51, Vol.
13. Those words are the personal and
impersonal views of Star and its editor
and. we are ready to debate the subject
to a finished frazzle with any or all
comers ! Universal peace with disarmament is the only system for sensible humanity ; the glamor and the humbug of
militarism are only for the jingoes and
those who get the contracts. If the Gazette editor had be n a close student of
his 'esteemed cotem.' as he should have
been before asking schoolboyish questions, thereby wasting our valuable time
and circumscribed space, he would have
been adequately informed as to the origin,
moulding and historicity of Star's later
political adhesiveness to the government
of the day. At this stage of the contro
versial acerbitude and 'strained relation'
attitude of Gazette, repetition of Star's
severally published confessions of political faith will not be made to satisfy a
merely morbid inquisitiveness of our
friend—(personally we are independent
in political views, which is uninteresting
to Gazette and hidebound partizans.) As
space is limited in . Star our angelical
cotem. is courteously advised not to ask
questitions requiring mastodonic replies.
Such questions will be_snubbed, but nice
little ones, spicy, gritty, sarcastic and
hintive will receive proper attention and
we hope, a dignified 'comeback.'
SUBJECTS FOR DEBATE.
What is the matter with the Literary
and Debating Society? Some very interesting subjects for debate might be
put on the agenda paper. For instance :
' Does Princeton require better railway
and mail service;?' 'When should the
town be incorporated ; ?' 'Are Dominion public buildings required in,Prince-
ton ; ?' ' Should a mineral exhibit be established here ; ?' 'Is extensive advertis
ing and publicity beneficial ; ?' 'What are
the best methods of beautifying the
town ; ?' 'The ideal home life ;' 'Was
woman intended to be man's equal or his
servant ; ?' 'What is correct socialism ;?'
•Which i_ the better : Party government,
commission or by the Mosaic form ; ?'
'Is universal peace and disarmament attainable?' and 'Are women, forming
half of the hutnan family, entitled to the
same rights and privileges as men ?' In
these subjects may be found the bases
for good, lively debates and there are a
number of proven debaters in the town.
A considerable number of Bohunks,
Mojaves and Eyebrowskies are going to
the front to work on the railways.
The Keremeos quadrille club will give
a final season's dance on Friday, 28th
inst. The social friendship between the
two towns is sure to attract a fair delegation from 'Coalopolis.'
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
L. W. Shatford has been successful in
amending the game act as follows: 'The
provincial game warden may give permits to resident farmers, free miners actually prospecting, and Indians in organized dislricts to kill deer for food, for
their own use, and such permits shall
state the number of deer that may be
killed, and the length of time allowed
to have in their possession.'
An April Fool party will be given by
the Ladies' hospital auxiliary on Tuesday, April ist, in the courthouse. Admission 25c. Go, get a good surprise and
find out the rest.
Mrs. E. Waterman is visiting at Mrs
Holmes' residence, Granite Creek, and
with her daughter, Miss Dolly, is expected home today.
The picture films at the theatre this
week'have been up to their usual standard and good attendance has resulted.
The pictures cover a wide range of subjects and are often humorous, pathetic
and instructive. The managers have
provided a wholesome form of cheap
amusement and Princetonians appreciate
it by a generous patronage.
The Knights of Pythias will hold their
,grand annual ball on the evening of
Easter Monday, 24th inst. Arrangements
for the occasion include good music, sup
per and admission $1.50, ladies free. All
welcome and a good time assured.
C. R. Alloway, of Spokane, has joined
the staff of the bank of Montreal here.
Rev. W. H. Mayers, of Vancouver, for-
merlv of Barbadoes, W.I., will conduct
Anglican services unfiil return of Rev. J.
Williams, about the end of April.
Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Avery returned
from Vancouver last week.
Mrs. Manahan is the matron succeeding Miss Faulds at the hospital. She is
a graduate of Kootenay Lake hospital,
Nelson, was night superintendent at the
Sacred Heart hospital, Greenwood, and
has excellent credentials.
P. Burns & Co. have removed their,
butcher shop to the Irwin block. The"
shop is well lighted, inviting in appear"
ance and handily situated.
EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
The big kiln and stack for the B.C.
Portland Cement works at East Princeton have arrived and will be installed in
the next six weeks. Their weight is
over a hundred tons. All the machinery
for the plant is due to arrive shortly. It
is expected that cement will be made in
the late spring or ist June.
C. R. Briggs, secretary for the B.C.
Portland Cement Co., is expected here
soon on a business visit.
The head office of the cement company
will be removed from Vancouver to East
Princeton as soon as the works are in
operation.
COUNTY COURT.
Judge Brown of Greenwood held county
court last Tuesday in the courthouse.
One local case was settled out of court
and that of Clark v. Cook, wages, an
aftermath of the defunct Coalmont Courier, was adjourned to next sitting. The
defendant in this case is supposed to be
now on the high seas, or if the weather
is fine he will be somewhere on the low.
seas, in any c_.se he was not located by
wireless up to this minute of going to
press. I. N. Hallett, barrister, ot Greenwood, represented clients in liens upon
the Goldeli Zone, camp Hedley. Court
adjourned to April.
THE EGG TRADE.
The appointment of J. H. Hare, B.S.A.
in connection with the egg trade investigation now being conducted by the live
stock branch of the department of agriculture, Ottawa, will be received with-
satisfaction. He is a graduate of Ontario
agriculture college and has written numerous articles on the poultry business
in general, among which is a bulletin
now in press. Mr. Hare will be located
at Ottawa but will travel extensively in
the Dominion collecting data regarding
eggs and the trade generally, the information obtained will be used by the government in a movement to benefit and
regulate the trade.
PROPERLY BOILED MEAT.
To boil meat so as to retain the juices
and soluble salts and yet cook it sufficiently it should be plunged into boiling
water and boiled rapidly for about ten
minutes. A*ter this fast cooking the
kettle must be pushed over to the back
of the fire where its contents will simmer
gently. This tends to coagulate the
outer rind of the meat so that the juices
cannot escape. If meat be treated in this
manner the inside will be found juicy
and tender, but if the meat is allowed to
it will be found hard and chippy, the
goodjlfrss having all boiled out of it.
CORRECTION.
- Editor Star—Sir : The Peace River
Realty Co. of Vancouver, B. C, wish to
make an announcement.through the columns of Star regarding the/_iale of East
■Princeton townsite. We^ecured the sale
of a definite number oflots of this town-
site from (the own^ff C. R. Briggs, with
the undeJetan^-lfg that a certain number
of lots be sold, that certain improvements in the townsite be put in by us,
viz : an hotel, that all advertising matter
be first approved by the owner before
publication, and that the advertising
matter should be descriptive of the entire
Similkameen district as well as East
Princeton. It was also understood that
the B.C. Portland Cement Co. had no
direct financial interest in this sale, but
that insofar as the townsite would be the
nearest and most convenient place for its.

emplovees and that of the United Empire Mining Co. to live, it would be a
benefit to them.
To place this townsite on the market it
was thought best to organize a selling
company having a distinctly local name,
and so the East Princeton Development
Co. was formed to take complete charge
of its sale. The selling company were to
appoint all agents, place all advertising
matter with the owner's approval. As
local agents Kernan & Graham were
given the right to sell East Princeton in
Vancouver and D. G. McCurdy; was continued as the agent at the townsite. An
attractive folder has been prepared by us
and approved. , All agents have been
cautioned not to make any representations concerning East Princeton and its
tributary resources other than those mentioned in the folders. The Vancouver
agents took it upon themselves to place
several advertisements without our authority and consent or that of the owner.
In addition it has been reported to us
that they gave out unauthorized statements regarding the securing of employment by purchasers of lots and interested
parties. As soon as we were made aware
of this condition of affairs we cancelled
the Vancouver agents' right to sell East
Princeton and notified all purchasers of
lots to call at our office and get full particulars concerning actual conditions.
Following the cancellation of their
right to sell East Princeton these agents
have done everything possible to hurt
the sale of the townsite, but as is often
the case, we find that every knock given
by them has been but a boost. It is interesting to note that the parties whose
property they attempted to sell instead of
E ist Princeton have taken their agency
away from them, and they are now wandering in parts unknown as far as we are
able to ascertain. It is unfortunate that
we gave them the sale of East Princeton. We also wish to state that Mr.
Briggs was in no way responsible for the
statements or actions of these agents. It
was only by our action in taking away
from Kernan & Graham the agency in
Vancouver that Mr. Briggs refrained from
cancelling our contract.
We have every confidence in the coming possibilities and prosperity not only
of East Princeton but also of Princeton.
The completion of the two transcontinental railways to the coast will create
great activity and interest in the mining,
manufacturing, farming, fruit and stock
raising industries in the Similkameen
district. We shall be pleased to do all in
our power to stimulate all legitimate industries and boost the country. Any
communications addressed to us will be
carefully answered.
Yours very sincerely,
East  Princeton   Development Co., 330
Rogers bldg, per F. C. PORTER, manager.
Vancouver, Feb. 26, 1913.
An uptodate electric lighting system is
being submitted to the head office of tbe
Princeton Coal & Laud Co., and a favorable reply is expected. The town will
be much improved by it.

LETTER IS INTERESTING.
Editor Star—Sir : Before leaving Princeton I promised to describe this countrv
for many friends. Meadow Lake, Sask.,
is 100 miles north of Battleford. I have
taken a qnarter section of land adjoining
my son and it is a lovely piece of ground
half of which I can plow without cutting
a brush. I am staving with my son and
jam cutting tamarack fence posts and
^rsruce logs for my house which I will
iiuild this spring. The winter has been
fine up to now and the climate is much
like that of Onemile, near Princeton.
Lots of moose, deer and rabbits by the
million ; I am afraid they will become a
curse to the country. My son and -I
went to Beaver river for fish and caught
103 through the ice in two hours with a
hook and line. The fish weighed 500
lbs.    They are  called jackfish here  and
look like an eastern cod.
The soil is a dark, sandy loam, when
broken will produce grand crops of timothy, hay and clover. I have not seen a
stone the size of a bean since I came here.
I often think of farms I have seen in
the east where much of the ground was
rocky and could not be cultivated ; here
every foot of the ground can be worked.
Anyone coming here to settle should
bring a team of horses as they are dear.
A 1500-pound horse is easily worth $550.
Yours truly,
WM. MURRAY.
