No. 47
ENURCE MINE PUNT
Princeton Coal and Land Co.
Make Big Improvements'
for Mining.    .?
Evolution in Coal Mining hy New and
Improved Machinery Ensures
Large Tonnage.
One of the first questions a stranger
asks when he arrives in a town is:
' What keeps this place up?' ' What are
the resources of the district ?' When a
stranger asks those questions in Princeton he is told that the Princeton Coal
and Land Co. provide the payroll and
o.vn the townsite. It is some dozen years
since this company began to operate in
Princeton but owing to the lack of rail-
wa> transportation the development and
output of their coal mine were limited.
Since the railroad was completed to
Princeton in October, i^gjgjytbe development of the mine ha/^proceeded, until
there are now a mila/and a quarter of
underground workings/^
Grading and Loading Coal.
With the increased demand for coal
from local, Boundary and Kootenay
points and the prospect of an ever widening market an expenditure of between
$75,000 and $100,000 is now being made
in increased power and plant. A total
of two hundred horse power will be the
steam capacity of the new installation.
The Link Belt Co. of Chicago are makers
of the screening plant now being installed. This will grade three classes of coal:
lump, egg aud nut, the first named passing over a 4-inch bar screen ; egg over a
i^-inch shaking screen; the nut and
slack resulting from smaller screens.
After screening the coal passes over picking belts for sorting, removing by hand
all non-combustible matter in its passage
to the bins, each of 80 tons capacity.
From the bins the coal passes onto a conveyor belt taking it to a Victor box car
loader, which, when at full speed, loads
a 40-ton car in 7 minutes, or ordinarily
200 tons an hour.
Uptodate Mining.
The Hardy Patent^ckCo^of Shefifield,
England, supply Jrhe cefal punching machines required/for/£__ economic produc
tion of cosl^ These machines are operated with compressor power and by their
use a vastly improved condffion of coal
is produced, when compared with the
old style of blasting. That lumpy state
so much desired for domestic use will
now be obtained and the market supplied
with an even, clean grade of fuel. With
the excellent reputation which Princeton
coal has won in competition with old
established mines there is no doubt of
its future large  demand.   Once used by
any housewife no other will be bought
It will not soil the daintiest hand, nor
fill the house with those gaseous odors so
common to some of the coking varieties
and which require frequent attention of
the chimney sweep. For steaming pur
poses Princeton eral stands much higher
in thermal qualities than many of the
soft kinds.
Shops and Lavatory.
The machinery and plant generally
was specially designed for the Princeton
Coal and Land Co. by the Link Belt Co.
and will prepare and ship 500 tons of
coal daily. Extra trackage and car
scales have been installed to meet the
expansion in tonnage output. An uptodate machine shop, blacksmith shop, carpenter shop and storehouse haye- been
constructed. A lajjatory—has been put
up for the use of employees, a convenient necessity which indicates a disposition toward the humane side of business.
When all the improvements and additions are completed in the next few weeks
the Princeton Coal and Land Co. will
have an uptodate equipment to handle
their high grade coal. A large payroll
and consequent increased prosperity will
follow the extended operations of this
company. If Princeton presented no
other mineral attractions than coal its
future importance would be assured in
the high quality and abundance of its
sub-bituminous fuel.
Electricity is Proposed.
The Priuceton Coal and Land Co. own
about two thousand acres of land in and
around tKe~tow_-r-besides—copper propositions and valuable real estate in reserve
and-ron sale. A waterworks company
under control of officials of the P.C. &
L.C may be considered subsidiary and
supplies the town with this pure and plentiful essential. As soon as the citizens of
Princeton in sufficient number warrant
the installation of an electric light plant
the coal company will readily acquiesce
in this demand. But the patronage of
the townspeople is vital and must be
assured before a large expenditure can be
undertaken on the generation of electricity for light and power purposes to
meet the growing requirements of Princeton, and district.
THE KING IS COMING.
King Kennedy, the king of magicians,
will give one of his celebrated exhibi
tions consisting of magic, ventriloquism
and moving pictures. His new tricks are
all modern and uptodate. King is an
annual visitor to Princeton and playgoers
would certainly miss him if he should
fail to appear. But King is sure acoming
and the excitement will not subside until
the show is over for a week or two. Let
the young and old come and see King in
his amusing and varied entertainment
of fnn and frolic. At the I.O.O.F. hall,
Tuesday next, Nov. 28. Tickets—adults,
50c , children, 25c.
MINES AND MINING
Big Strike of First Class Ore
in Voigt Camp—End
Coke Famine.
Six   Thousand Coal Miners  Resume
Work after 7 Months Strike-
Mining Notes.
Continued reports have been received
from Copper mountain of an immense
strike of first class ore being-'made in
Voigt camp where prospecting is being
carried out on an extensive scale by the
B. C. iGppper company. The mining
public were prepared for the report of
this strike knowing that certain showings
pointed to a rich body of ore as progress
was made in the preliminary stages of
development.
Lethbridge, Alta., Nov. 19.—The
agreement between the striking miners
and the operators was signed up on Friday afternoon at Hosmer and the big
strike, which has been in effect since
March last, was officially brought to an
end. Shortly after 4 o'clock President
Powell, P. L. Naismith and C. E. S.
Whiteside, representing the operators,
affixed their signatures to the official
documents which were also signed by W.
B.Powell, district president,Clem.Stubbs,
vice president and A. J. Carter, secretary
of the miners. The miners have been
ordered to report at the mines at 7 o'clock
Monday morning, at which time they
will sign on and be given their tools,
after which they will be taken into the
mines for the purpose of getting out the
black diamonds as before. Nearly 6,000
men will report for work Monday, and it
is expected that the number will be added to from day to day as required until
the mines have resumed their old capacity. It was also stat :d last evening that
coal from the local mines would be
placed on the market within a day or
two, and that by Wednesday tbe mines
would be working to nearly their full
capacity.
Manager Warren of the B.C. Copper
Co. mentions Voigt camp in the Grand
Forks Gazette as one of the possessions
of the company on which development
work v\ ill be pushed.
Provincial ConstabfeL. B. Simeon had
a narrow escapevrrom violent death on
Sunday whetyltghing the%itchen fire,
says the Kgmiloops Sentinel. He had
placed coal in the stove and was about to
strike a match when he discovered a
stick of dynamite among the coal, probably th. result of some miner's carelessness or the failure of the stick to explode
when used in the mine.
President Luther cf the Granby Company   says that   at the present market
price for copper, the company, when
operating again, shonld be able to make
approximately $50,^00 net per month.
The Granby whistle blew for the first
time in months on last Monday morning
at Phoenix, the result of coke soon to
arrive from Crowsnest.
The steam hoist on No. 14 group, Voigt
camp^fias-been installed and three shifts
<_F~35 men are working steadily on the
various mineral claims. An excellent
bunch of miners make the camp life
highly enjoyable and a certain enthusiasm over the prospective future of B.C.
Copper Co's operations is noticeable in
all concerned.
The old Cariboo mine, the pioneer and
at one time the biggest gold producer of
British Columbia, located at Camp McKinney, will shortly resume operations.
When work on the Cariboo was discontinued about five years ago it was not
owing to the lack of pay ore, according
to statements made by miners employed
there at that time. The shut-down is
said to have immediately followed an extraordinary rich strike in the lower level
and the mine was allowed to be filled
with water.
EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton, B. C, Nov. 20.—W. J.
Budd left for Calgary on Wednesday's
train.   yQl.  v-, -
Men are now at work clearing the one
mile road from the town up to the cement
plant. This road has been closed during
the past summer owing to grading on the
spur, but now that the railroad grade is
practically completed the wagon road
will be reopened.
A number of men and teams are engaged in filling in the foundation of the
cement stock house preparatory to laying
the cement floor.
W. H. Carsly has staited work on his
xesidence on ninth ave.
Plans are in preparation for several
buildings and contracts will be let for
some of them before the end of the week.
J. A. Osborne, Supt. of the B. C. Portland Cement Company re __Tv_cTa 60 h p
McLaughlin car last week. This is the
first automobile owned in East Princeton.
The B. (M'Cement Co. are putting in
telephone poles to connect with the local
telephone in Princeton until an exchange
is installed in east Princeton.
. Houses for rent are rather scarce and a
still greater demand may be expected
with the development of mines and allied
interests.
The cold snap which spread over the
continent two weeks ago was somewhat
premature in the case of Princeton. Now
there is fair prospect for a green Christmas and open winter. Weatherwise
persons predict that the coldest of the
winter is already past.

SIMPLE TESTS FOR PURE FOOD.
From time immemorial the freshness
or otherwise of an egg has been a perplexing problem to the housewife. Even
at the present time it is probable that the
majoritp of people do not know how to
tell whether an egg is goqd enough until
they have broken it. "This is strange, inasmuch as the method of finding out tbe
condition of'egg is so simple that any
one can follow it; moreover, the test
given is one which is relied upon by the
trade and may therefore be taken with
confidence. All that is necessary in
/order to carry out the experiment is a
,'darkroom in which a candle has been
placed. No take the egg and hold it up
between the eye and the light, A new-
aid or very fresh egg will show clearly
an air space in the larger end between
the shell and the lining membrane. If
the egg is really new laid this should be
very_small, for it tends"R> increase as an
eggjs kept. All the rest of the surface
shown sbpuld„ present a homogeneous
and translucent appearance; if the article
is positively bad a number of dark' spots
will be visible.
There is little doubt that milk, especially in town's, is still subject to the
time worn practice of adulteration with
water. If skillfully done this is not very
easy to detect if the mere appearance of
the liquid is considered. There is one
very simple test that will tell us at once
whether the milk is of a good quality
and rich with a proper amount of cream.
Take a sample of the milk and place it
aside in a receptacle; a small tube is good
for the purpose. Stir the milk well and
then take a thick bright knitting needle.
Plunge this to a depth of several inches
into the milk and hold it steadily slanting downward. If the milk is of a rich
quality the fluid will slowly gather in a
drop at the end of the needle and this
will remain for rather a long time. On
the other hanc| supposing that water has
been added the drop will hardly form at
all, and even if it should it will not stay
but will quickly fall.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The attention of the Provincial
Tax Commission is respectfully directed to the enormous drain upon
the people through the per capita
tax levied by labor unions and fraternal societies for the support of
high salaried executive officials,
strike funds, homes for aged and
infirm workingmcn and many other
objects, benevolent and otherwise,
with headquarters in the United
States. Nearly all organizations
of the class mentioned have their
origin and central institutions in
the U.S., requiring large tribute
money from Canada for their maintenance. Why not have these organizations establish headquarters
and charitable homes in Canada ?
Were the gentle hand of the tax
gatherer laid upon these Orders,
unions and societies it is probable
that they would establish in Canada, thus preventing a serious outflow of money never to return.
Evidence could easily be obtained
from officials and the matter probed
and remedied. Star believes in
conservation of onr natural resources and since it has repented somewhat of a rabid advocacy of free
trade it now calls for protection or
conservation of cash resources.
Sir Wilfrid laurier has recently
passed his 70th birthday and received the congratulations of King
George, the presidents of France
and the United States, Premier Asquith, Chancellor Lloyd George,
Lord Strathcona, Premier Borden,
and many other notable persons of
all shades of politics.
The leader of the Conservative
party in England, Hon. J. A. Balfour, has resigned and is succeeded
by a Canadian, Bonar Law. There
are some able Canucks, including
the member for St. Pancakes, in
the imperial house and it is hoped
that the number will yet increase
until dear 'grandma' wakes up to
a sense of the importance of her
growing family and unity of the
empire. Balfour, the dilettante,
was too lazy for a leader and will
scarcely take rank as a statesman
among the illustrious of history.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Four weeks and four days to Christmas. Santa Claus is making big preparations for the holidays and readers will
profit to watch the advertisements for the
good things that will be on sale in the
various stores. Santa sends wireless
greetings to his dear boys and girls and
says he is quite well for an old fellow.
His reindeer are all fat and sleek, due to
the good grass around Welldo. Now
boys be good and do not throw snowballs
at people older than yourselves unless
you are invited. -The girls are all good
and Santa says he will not forget them
when he comes on the wings of the wind
Christmas eve.
The tennis club dance last Friday night
was the most enjoyable occasion ever
held in the 'old town.' The music by
Princeton orchestra was delightful and
the hall was filled with 'fair women and
brave men.'
J. Wilbur Bryan a young newspaperman of Vancouver B. C. arrived in town
on Wednesday and will remain for a few
weeks familiarizing himself with local
conditions and future prospects in addition to taking advantage of the excellent
shooting.
C. M. Snowden returned from Vfctoria
today where he had been on business
with provincial statesmen.
S. R. Tilson & Co. is the name of the
new firm to open a gents' furnishing store
iu the early part of 1912 at Coalmont.
Mr. Tilson was several years connected
with the firm of Porter Bros., railway
contractors and enjoys a large circle of
friends who wish him success in his new
departure.
A. E. Raab has received instructions
from the government to begin work on
that portion of the transprovincial road
between Hope and Silver creek.
No laraer need be without mowitch
these days for deer are plentiful and
hunting conditions are just right. Some
handsome trophies of the chase were
shot by Messrs. Marston and Allison and
Bert Thomas, Sam Moore, Fred Howse,
Bill Kirkpatrick, Mike Gaynor, Tink
French, S. Freeman and Podunk were
all more or less successful.
Frank Bailey, M.E., |was in town Saturday on his way to Hedley froto/Mer-
ritt. Always optimistic, Mr. PaKey sees
a prosperous future for the Similkameen
and Nicola districts. He may permanently locate iu Princeton with his wife
and practice his profession.
I. A. Dinsmore, chief constable aud

C. H Gibbons, publicity specialist,
Victoria, B.C., has just established a press
clipping bureau exclusively for British
Columbia, furnishing public men and
others with all published references to
special subjects in which they may be
interested. Newspapers will have a systematic record of the quotations made
from them, which will be of considerable
advantage to editors and managers.

Perhaps no other bird in the whole
range of ornithology is held in such veneration as the stork. It is considered an
omen of good fortune and joy to have a
stork alight in the vicinity of a home.
L,ast Friday, 17th inst., the stork visited
No. 70 Tapton av., and H. T. Rainbow is
the proud father of another musician,
receiving many congratulations and
recurring smiles over the happy event.

IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF

Here are some of the Reasons:
East Princeton is surrounded by huge de=
posits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important flinerals.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a Iig="
nite coal of the best quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large reduction works and several hundred employees. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For transportation, East Princeton will

November 22, 1911.
THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
THE FEMALE WAGE EARNER.
"Is it possible for a female wage-erner
to save from her monthly wage an amount which in the aggregate w'11 be sut
ficient to provide her with an income
from the time herearning.daysare over?"
was recently the subject of an interesing
discussion at a Woman's Club, and the
conclusion come to was, that if the wage-
earner were earning less than $500 a year
this would be extremely difficult. For
the purpose of illustration, the period of
accumulation was assumed to be from 23
to 6o, and the amount of capital required
$6.06%..in order to yield an income of
of $300 a year, which was considered to
be the minimum amount on which she
could maintain herself with comfort and
respectability. All this may be quite
true. But there is another plan of investment of which the lades had evidently not heard, namely, the Canadian.
Government Annuities system, which is
not only absolutely safe, but which will
give a much larger return for a much
smaller investment, and larger, it may be
said than any other plan available will
give as a means of making provision for
old age.
For example, if a woman of 23 were to
deposit with the government yearly the
sum of $39 24 until she was 60, which
she could do by weekly or monthly installments if she preferred, or a total of
$1451.88 only, the government would
pay her $300 a year or $75 every three
months so long as she might live from
and after sixty. If she died before attaining that age, the total payments made
with 3 per cent, compound interest would'
be refunded to her heirs- If she died at
58 they would receive $2425 77, or $1052.37
more than she had paid in up to that
time.
If she had no one dependent upon her
and  concerned   about herself only, she

could secure under the "B" plan the
same quarterly income of $75 for an
annual payment of $29.67, or for a total
paid in of $1097.79, a yearly return for
life no matter how long that may be of
nearly 30 per cent, of the sum invested.
Mark the enormous difference; • On
the one hand she would require at 60 a
capital of #6,000 invested at 5 per cent,
to yield her an income of $300, with all
the accompanying anxiety of making
safe investments, while on the other hand
she could provide the same income for
about one-fifth of the purchase money
spread in easy payments over the accumulation period. In ninety-nine cases
out of one hundred she would not, having regard to th: the recurring temptation to use the money, have the capital
at sixty which would be necessary to give
the income. You have only to write
(postage free) to the Superintendent of
Canadian Government Annuities, Ottawa
to obtain full information in regard to
this provident scheme.

THE AGBIC TJLTURAL  JOURNAL.
The first number of the Agricultural
Journal of B C. has been laid upon the
editor's table. Both the matter and Ihe
manner of its presentation are equal to
similar productions with many years of
experience. There is no doubt a field
exists for an agricultural journal in this
province and the editor -who supplies
the necessary information to farmers will
command generous patronage. In the
Similkameen district farmers need coaching along cattle, sheep, hog, poultry and
horse raising lines and an agricultural
journal that will point the way does a
public service. The Journal is mechanically neat. The cover title illustration
could be improved by substituting two!
scraggy bull pines or spruce trees for an
orchard or farmyard scene, and the spelling of words like 'honor' with 'u' is decidedly outofdate. The Journal should
have the support of agriculturists. Address the Agricultural Journal, P.O. Box*
