crossing of the Tulameen.WThe bridge
builders have not arrived as vet and soon
the harvest days will be over. What

Crops on Onemile will be good and the
ranchers are hap] y. At the Hagerman
ranch an average yield of hay and grain
will be gathered. This excellent ranch
has vast possibilities of production when
its 300 acres are in use.
At Victoria, on the 20th inst., Major
G. M. Heinekey departed this life. He
was a citizen of Princeton about a year
ago and was much esteemed. .
Luke Gibson is a visitor .from Hope for
a few days.
Summerland hospital is about to close

W. C. Nicoll. of San Francisco, was a
visitor last week and may reside here

Relying on common report Star erroneously stated last week that 160 lots
had been sold to a Vancouver syndicate.
Instead . it should have said that 15 lots
have been purchased in different parts of
the town by Vancouver people.
A new lumber town will be started at

MINES AND MINING.
With the payment of a $6 quarterly
dividend on June 28, the Calumet &
Hecla Mining Co., has returned to the
shareholders, since incorporation, a tota
of $115,450,000. When it is taken into
consideration that this has been done' on
an issued capital of only $2.500.000, the
achievement ranks as one of the most
remarkable in the hiiiory of. .American
industries. The report is made that the
Calumet & Hecla is pincding out, which
is causing a l'vely demand for copper
properties.
Owiugto the . great scarcity of cOal in
the northwestern provinces, due to the
strike of coal miners, the board of trade
at Calgary has asked the Dominion government to remove-the duty on coal for
six months. There are 100,000 tons at
Spokane ready to export to those provinces. Why not export some of the
coal from Princeton district ?
P. Y. Smith is  prospecting for anthra
cite coal on the upper Tulameen. .
Two coal miners were fined $10 each

EXHIBIT YOUR ORE.
H. B. Brown will be glad to communicate with anyone having ore exhibits for
the Vancouver exposition from Aug. 28 to
Sept. 4. Vancouver is a center for mining capital and any proposition of merit
can be financed there. Show the goods
to the world and mining men at the exposition can euter into preliminary negotiations. If there is nothing to exhibit
it is probable there is nothing for sale.
The board of trade and citizens generally
as well as mine owners and prospectors
should take a working interest in this
big exposition. Mr. Btown is an official
of the exposition and his address is 443
Pender St. W.,. Vancouver.
MINES AND MINING
Descriptive Reports of Voigt's
Camp and Princeton
Coal Basin.
Coal Measures Extend .Fourteen Miles
Long and Vary from 3 to i
in Width.
The prominence given.to Voigt's camp
by reason of the magnitude of the deai
now in its final stages by which some
Sixty mineral claims will be transferred,
is sufficient to warrant publication of a.
concise article begun in last week's issue,
from the pen of E. Jacobs, the well
known mining writer, concergjing .this
camp.   It is as follows :
Similkameen river at this point flowing
towards the uorth, adjoins some of the
property on the west side of the camp.|
The nearest town pj Princeton, which lies1
some 10 to n miles to the north, and is
the present terminal of the Great North
em railway. From the camp to Priiice
ton is reached by a good wagon road,
crossing one divide.
Altitude—The camp is about 2600 feet
above sea level, 800 feet above the smelt-
;ery site, and tooo feet above the Similkameen river.
Climate.—The climate is good both
summer and winter, permitting outdoor
operations to be carried on practically
throughout the entire year.. The' rainfall
is moderate and snowfall light.
-Transportation.—The Victoria, Van
couver and Eastern railway, (part of the
Great Northern railway system), is extending its line westward, making a direct
route from Spokane, Wash., to Vancouver, B. C. The line has been completed
to Princeton. Further construction will
beproceeded with as rapidly as practicable until the line shall be completed.
Previously the district had been without
railway communication, making development or construction work economically
prohibitive. With the advent of the
railway these conditions have been
changed.
History.—The development of the
mineral deposits of Voigt's camp was
commenced 10 or 11 years ago. The
country was difficult to prospect owing to
its comparative inaccessibility, the steepness of its mountains, and the undergrowth and fallen limber. It was first
believed the mineral veins ran east and
west. A considerable amount of clearing
trail-cuttibg, open-cut and prospect work
was required to reach the various mineral
Continued on page 4.
THE INTERPROVINCIAL ROAD.
Engineey Cleveland arrived over the
Hope trail" on Saturday, having come to
further jtovestigate the  route of the in
terprovincial trunk road. His party has .
reached the bead of Silver creek and
are now surveying of. tbe Muddyl JTnis
route, following the Roche and {siniilkameen rivers to Princeton is undoubtedly
the best-to. be..trt___„ed across the Hope
mountain range. From, the standpoints
of mileage, snowfall and country to be
served this route has no superior. The
mining camps along this route have ore
.tonnage, machinery and supplies to haul
oyer it, besides the "scenic, fishing and
hunting attractions are without a peer.
It is probable that construction of the
roa'd will begin soon.
BUSH EIRE BREAKS OUT.
Wbat_ threatened to be a serious bush
fire broke out in some, asyet, unaccountable manner yesterday on the bench back
of the hospital. - Prompt action by Fire
Chief Gellatly arid _. ire Warden Coulthard and the readyiresponse of citizeus
averted what might otherwise have been
a disaster. Th£ground is strewn wit^t
dry. and dJan limbs 'and tree tops and
affords ready ignition for a match, cigar
stub or stray spark. Fire Warden Mac-
phaii of Merritt has issued orders that no
campers or others will be allowed an
open fire within the danger zone of the
town under penalty of the full limit of
the law. _S*5.
I COALMONT TOWNSITE LOTS.
As will be observed by advertisement
on page 3, lots in the townsite of Coal-'
mont are now on sale at very reasonable
prices. When one stops to think of the ■"
great prosperity and development which
usually follow the production of coal ctt
a large scale and observes the large and
thriving towns and cities built on the ■
foundation of coal mining, it will not be
surprising to find that Coalmont is no
exception to the rule. It is a fact that
the Columbia Coal & Coke Co. is making preparations to mine oa a large scale
and it is,a fact that they own a big basin
of the finest bituminous coal, on these
corner stones of fact will be reared the
city of Coalmont.
THE PHILOSOPHY OE LIFE.
It may be wisdom to toady to ignorance but that policy cannot elevate or
edify anyone.
Knocking is a mental dssease soon detected in a. short talk with those thus
afflicted. Envy and jealousy supply the-
motive power for the little hammerers.
Neglect of religious worship is a long
step toward infidelity and heathenism.
Some persons do a kind and generous
deed, then sap all' the virtue from it by
telling everybody about it.
The hatchet and the hammer are the
tools of depraved mankind—bury them.
The generosity of some persons merely
consists of passing the hat to 'next.'

THE OLDEST RELIGION.
.The Victoria Colonist comments
as   follows  on   Christian  Science:
'Speaking as  a Christian Scientist,
Senator jiotfo __. Works,   of Cali-
for__a,~'_i___  the  senate quiet and
attentive  for  an   hour recently in
Washington,  with the temperature
at 95 deg., wBile he told the story
of how  he,  his  wife  and son had
•been restored to health.    He spole
with an earnestness and force that
■supplied  its ow_i evidence ttat he
was  performing what he  regarded
as  his   duty.    He  disclaimed,   for
himself and for Christian  Scientists
geuerally.any hostility to any school
of medicine.     He  had  tried them
all, he said, and they  had done the
best they could.    The medical pro-
fesSlQh is do.ng' a great work in the
healing of   disease,   he said,  and
- Christian Scientists never would be
found    opposing    legislation    that
tends to improve  the  medical profession.     The remarks of Senator
Works were provoked by the bill of
Senator  Owen,  of Oklahoma, providing for the  consolidation of existing government medical bureaux
in a department of public health.'
' I propose   to   discuss this question   from   the   standpoint   of   the
Christian   Scientist','   said   Senator
Works in opening,  'and to describe
rayjj.wn personal experience for U n
years.    I was a scoffer and derided
and  ridiculed the claims of Christian Scientists to heal disease.    Hut
the time came  when  I was to put
their claims to the test.    I had suffered  for  many  years from a complication of complaints.    At the last
I  suffered  acutely  night ahd day.
I  was   extremely     weak.     Death
seemed   near   at   hand.    I tried all
the  schools  of  medicine,,  regular,
homeopaths    and   osteopaths,   the
latter   conceiving   tbe idea that th'
headaches  from  which  I   suffered
were due  to  a displacement of one
of the vertebrae  which pressed od
the spinal cord.    I have no word of
condemnation   or   criticism  of the
physicians  who  did  the best they
could for me ;  but  from the time I
began to   take  the treatments I began to improve  until   I was completely healed.    My wife, who had
been an invalid 15 years, began the
treatments at the sane time.    She
h d   been  told  that her only relief
was the  surgeon's knife.    She wss
healed   in three treatments through
Christian   Science.      But   the  one
thing that appealed to ns more than
anything.else was tbe curing of our
son of the strong drink habit, which
had taken hold of him so completely
that we had to take him home and
nurse him like  a child.    He resist-1
ed our pleadings for a year, an(|
finally,  after   a  long  debauch, he-
said : 'I know what Christian Science has done for you and mother.
Call in your Christian Science heal
ers.'    This was almost  seven years
ago,   remarked Senator Work, and
from the time he took the first treatment the desire for drink was com
pletely destroyed.'
The medical trust which strove to
gain  monopolistic   legislation,  depriving  all  others  of the right to
cure,  has   met  with  defeat in the
U.S. congress and any like move in
Canada or any enlightened country
is  likely   to,   and  should,  receive
similar defeat.    Freedom of thought
in  religious,    political,   social  and
medical matters is ours and the conscience of  every   person   must be
respected.    Christian Science is the
oldest curative agency in the world
healing  as it  does by divine power
alone.    It  is obedient  to the command  of Jesus  Christ,  saviour  of
mankind,  who  himself healed and
said that those who obeyed his commands and believed on him should
do the works that he did and greater.     Christian   Science   takes  the
bible  as  its   sufficient guide  unto
eternal life and teaches that there is
'none  other   name  ("Jesus' Christ)
under   heaven    given among  men
whereby we  must  be saved.'    To
have the  mind and  follow in the
footsteps  of the Master is  to, first
in importance,   cause  the sinner to
seek salvation   then heal him.    To
think no evil   and   to be filled with
love is the aim of all true Scientists.
A multitude of people bound many
y;ars by satan in sickness have been
cured   through   Christian Science,
thus it is a provable, demonstrable
religion and has no relation to spiritualism,     theosopby,    hypnotism,
mind healing or mental suggestion.
Scientists  do  not make proselyte.'',
'have no controversy  with other religious bodies, are  not sensational
in thetr methods and avoid aggressiveness, preferring to  work as the
leaven,  quietly and unobtrvsively.
There  are   1200 Christian Science
churches throughout the world and
is  growing   at   the   rate of a new
church  every week, besides  thousands  of believers   who  have  not
yet become  members.    A few persons  misunderstand   and   misin'er-
pret Christian Science not knowing
that  it  is  spiritual  and cannot be
apprehended by the carnal mind for
it is enmity against God, Spirit.
An orthodox minister says : 'As
I have studied this people from the
Atlantic to the Pacific I haye seen
their spacious temples filled with
reverent worshipers and have read
aiew the prophecy, 'A little one
shall become a thousand, and a
small one a strong nation.'

locations and to ascertain from the trend
of the veins and their probable size. This
work has been carefully and intelligently carried out, with the result that
the occurrence of enormous veins or
mineralized zones has been demonstrated.
Approximately $125,000 has been expended in bringing the property to its
present condition,besides years of time,
Princeton Coal Basin.
Progress is being made with the de-
■velopment of the coal measures at and
about Princeton, Similkameen. The
most advanced work is that of the Princeton Coal & Land Company, an auxillia y
organization of the Vermillion Forks
Mining and Development Company,
of which Ernest Waterman has for years
been resrdent manager. Next of importance are the operations of the Princeton
Collieries Limited, , Among others, the
Osoyoos Coal.Minrng^Cr mpany of Nelson
and tbe United 'Empire Company of
Spokane have also done mining work on
their respective properties.
In his "Preliminary Report on a part
of the Similkameen district," published
in 1907 by the Geological Survey of
Canada, Charles Camsell, who, during
several field-work seasons has done much
geological work in the district remarks,
under the subhead "Oligocene": ,«./T_ese
sedimetary rocks alone in the northern
part of the district cover an area of fifty
square miles, the basin being fourteen
miles long .with a variable width of from
three   to five and a   half  miles. .
