Mining Prospects Better Than Ever
B. C. COPPER CO. IS
HERE TO STAY AND
WILL OPERATE.
VOIGT CAMP DEAL GOES
I:
Delay Due to Several Reasonable Causes—Mining
Outlook Bright.
.The keen interest taken in the Voigt
Camp mining deal and other ne irby
pro; erties owned by various parties has
1 >£en prolific of many rumors To allay
a&y uneasiness and to correct wrong im
pfessions Star is in a position to give
authentic information regarding progress
of the de«_--___*__■ n- the-BC. Copper-Co.
and E. F. Voigt, who represents his own
and the fnt.resU of co owners in Voigt
camp
Mineral Ground Extensive
It was a year  in  Septembei  last when
the  bond neSotitalions were completed,
since which time the B.C. Copper Co. has
done a lot of developntent an.liexplora
tory  work.       With  all   the   equipment
available,  five diamond drills, ami  the
work  pushed  energetically   only acorn
paratively small fraction of   the .bonded
properties has been expli'Ufd and brought
to  that   stage  where-^a   SaIe*-conld   be
effected.    Some  3,000  acres  of mineral
claims are covered with the deal and so
great an extent of mineral ground must
take a lot of proving.
Deal in Abeyance
A considerable payment  matured  on
the 21st  December  last  and   it  was   in
settlement of this and further conditions
that the B C. Copper Co., stopped opera
tions ; the bond having expired.     Negotiations  toward   resump'ion of the bond
were  haujpered  bv  the absence of con
fulting directors and officials during the
holidays      As  the deal  now  stands  all
matters  are   in   abeyance,  and   may so
remain until the annual general meeting
of the B C. Copper Co a  out the middle
of February.     All  the business negotia
li mis 1 ave  been   conducted   wi.h cordial
and friendly disposition, and there is no
cause for disquieting rumors.     The mag
nitude    of  the   deal   and   the    various
propositions and counter propositions in
working out the details, necessarily takes
much time,   Tbe president of the  B.C,
has deferred matters until all concerned
are able to be present.
Will Not Pull Out.
The B.C. Copper Co. is here to stay.
A smelter and the big constructive works
in connection are under consideration.
The purchase of already certain interests
in Voigt camp is but the prelude to the
B.C, Copper C<> expending large sums of
money in mining and allied works.
The company are considering the ne
cessity of changing headquarters to
Princeton now that development and
construction are a part of the program.
Copp .r,go]d ores at^_o plentiful in the
district that a large smelter is demanded
The B C Copper Co. has had experts
examining and reporting for a number of
years past, the information thus obtained
being reliable and uptodate With a mass
of data in tbei. pos.essioq.and the proven
value of properties which they own there
is no reason to doubt that the company
have a field for investment and operation
which warrants permanent location. All
they ask and expect is fair treatment and
reasonable time allowances in which to
prove value.
Railways Wanted Right Away.
The • mining situation in Princeton
district is mo.t favorable With one big
company owning and developing its pro
perties, inducement for other companies
is doubly enhancing As the pioneers
of mining and smelting here the B C.
Copper Co has spent already large sums
of money aud have demonstrated the
existence of rich and extensive ore bodies.
In their train will follow the usual payrolls andM-he^e* rtiean population and
progress. With the development of the
mines railways are a positive need and
adjunct. Lines of railways surveyed and
in progress now form a network all over
the district. ^The -government has geu
eronsly provided roads an I trails prac-
.i__llv „11 over the mining section
Railway cons.ri__ipir"__ould begfn within a few months on the Kettle Valley.
All things considered the year opens
-with ap undimtned horizon and the man
who cannot forsee prosperity ahead is a
chronic pessimist, blinded wth a bilious
temperament that refuses the evidence of
fact.
To Whom Credit is Due.
That the . .C. Copp.r Co. is becoming
anchored to this district is mainly due to
the energy and j ability of E. F Voigt,:
who has for more than a decade industriously uncovered the" copper gold deposits
of Voigt camp. He has spent time aud
much money in prospecting and develop
ing on a large scale, and has been a
standing advertisement all over the con
tinent of the mineral wealth of this
district. His efforts are deserving1 not
only of a handsome monetary reward
but of generous public recognition and
acknowledgment Numerous     other
owners of mineral properties are entitled,
to every credit for their labors in bring
ing capital to Copper  Mountain.    Not a I
prospector who has lingered along the^e
many years between  hope, anxiety and
hardship bnt is worthy  of the remunera
tion now in sight and future success in
his chosen field.
Mining Notes.
The deal pending for some time, where-
bv the United Empire will be sold to a
Spokane cement company, is reported to
have been made. The United Empire is
a coal, ore and land proposition of great
y due, and under the new proprietors will
be actively mined and operated.
George J. Novak returned a few days
since from Highland Valley, near Ashcroft, where he has been for two and a
half months looking after his mining
property in that section, says a recent
issue of the Rossland Miner. In a chat
with him he stated that it is now being
proved that the ore bodies go down. As
aVi evidence of this he says that within
the last three ye__T dwnGrS _f properties
there have been.exploiting_at depth and
have found on the McGilvray group, for
instance, ore on depth of 200 feet. The
Topnotch group has four feet of copper
ore at a depth of 125 feet that will average
8.- per cent, copper and $4 in gold and
silver values. The Glossy group is being
developed by a.shaft which has resJchetJ
a depth of 40 feet, and the ore runs from
$60 to $100 per ton. A few years ago
these properties were not known.
DEBATING   SOCIETY.
A public meeting was held on Wednes-
daj night in the Oddfellows hall to consider steps to be taken in the formation
of a Literary 'anil Debating Society.
There was a fair attendance although
the night was disagreeable. The following officers were elected : President, Rev.
Ri' J. McLean ; vicepresident, J. D.
Andras; secretary and treasurer, J.
Drummond ; executive cotnmitte, Rev.
T. A. Osborne, Miss Irwin, Miss Scott,
Miss Thomas, F. A. Howse, J. Nathan,'
G. H. Darby, D. G. McCurdry, Mr.
Lindsay. Meetings will be held weekly
The first lecture of the society will be
given on Wednesday, January 15th. by
the Rev. R.J. McLean, subject: 'Ireland
and its people,' to which the public are
cordially invited. The object of the
society is along the lines of mutual im
provement, social literary and debating
culture being featured. Membership
subscription $1.00.
MOVING PICTURES.
The films on exhibition at the Dignan
hall recently have drawn good houses and
proven a genuine source of entertaining
amusement. The audience were made
delightfully merry over the lifelike
characters shown in a game called hasp-
ball, and some of our local fans could
hardly resist the temptation to join with
those in the bleachers. Such pictures
are refreshing and invigorating especially
when zero weather makes one long for
two-piece garments, and tbe inevitable
mop to whipe the moist laden brow
Another film showed a wonderfully intelligent collie dog. and kiddies awaken
ing in the audience responsive chords of
affection and applause. The ' movies '
are all right.
BIG GAIN IN MINERAL
OUTPUT OF B.C.
LAST YEAR.
TOTAL OVER $30,000,000
Increase   Over   38 Per Cent
Better Than in That
of 1911.
' Preliminary estimates of Btitish Columbia's mineral production during 1912
have just been completed by the provincial mineralogist, W. Fleet Robertson,
and indicate, as forecasted by the prime
minister in his New Year's day interview,
the breaking of all records for this industry in British Columbia, both as an output and value.
The figure shows a tolal for the past
l'2 months of 240,000 ounces of gold, both
lode and placer ^production ; 2,900,000
ounces of silver; 38,000,000 pounds of.
lead ; 51,000,000 pounds of copper;*
8,338,000 pounds of zinc; 2,650,000 tons
of coal and 364,006 tons of coke. ,
The Value of placer gold during the
year is placed at $500,000 and that of
gold production from quartz at J!4jOOo,ooo.
The silver production shows a gain of
1,007.300 ounces, and the copper output
leaped from 36,000,900 to 51,000,000
pound.. Lead and zinc also show large
gains.
The total value Of British Columbia's
mineral production for 1912 both precious
and economic is placed by Mr. Robertson
at $32,606,000, as contrasted with $23,499,
000 for 1911, a clear gain of $9,106,800 or
considerably better than 38 per cent.
PREMIER'S MESSAGE TO BRITISH
COLUMBIANS.
In willing all British Columbians
unclouded happiness and unexampled
prosperitj^during 1913, the provincial
prime minister, Sir Richard McBride, in
a New Year's interview, reviews in
sketchy outline the progressive develop;.,
ment during ttte past twelve-month, and
briefly forecasts expected features of the
dawning year's activities. At the beginning of each of several past years the
premier has sounded anote of patriotic
optimism in this manner, directing
public attention to what in tbe anticipated movement of events the immediate'
future will mean to British Columbia}
__nd upon each such occasions his cheering prophecies have been, by recorded
Coctinued on   page..

PREMIER'S MESSAGE TO  BRITISH
COLUMBIANS.
From    Page I.
accomplishments,   more   than    realized.
'The government is living up to its
responsibilities in facilitating and promoting, insofar as it is able and legitimately
may, the settlement and development of
the province,' says the first minister.
' It is assisting the extension of railways
and is providing good roads and facilities
of transport and communication. It is
providing educational opportunities also,
not only general, but technical as well
—expert and scientific instruction in the
most profitable and modern methods to
be adopted in mixed farming, poultry
raising, fmitgrowing,dairying, irrigation,
etc., taking into account conditions as
they obtain with us. To assure full and
desirable success in the explotation of the
varied and rich potentialities of the
countiy it is essential that the people
heartily and energetically co-operate with
the administration in utilizing these
various agencies of progress—this machinery of development and growth.
Now is the time for study of the various
sections that will shortly be made accessible by railway construction—for investi-
ation of their dormant resourses—for the
planning of permanent industries which
will satisfactorily utilize to the full our
plentitude of raw material and support
the trebled and quadrupled population
which British Columbia may shortly
hope to possess. We should be ready to
use our new railways as soon as they are
ready for operation.'
'The rapidity aud substantiality' of
construction from all strategic points
along the line of the Kettle Valley railway, is a matter of so general knowledge
to British Columbia that comment thereupon would be perhaps superfluous.
James J. Warren, the president of this
system, has shown himself, since the inception ol construction operations inde-
fatigably active in pushing this great
work forward, going ahead of his exact
obligations under the agreement with the
province and leaving no doubt in the
• minds of anyone as to his sincere desire
to have this road completed and catering
for the transportation necessities of
British Columbia just as soon as possible.
Unless there should come some setback
not at present to be anticipated, on any
ground whatever, one may look to see
the entire Kettle Valley system completed
and ready for operation by the end of
1914, bringing the coast and Kootenays
into close and beneficial touch commercially, and greatly stimulating the ex
ploitation and utilization of an important
section of the province that up till now
has laid dormant, awaiting the magic key
that railways bring.

A CHEERFUL MESSAGE-
Sir Richard McKride is an optimist. His new year message to the
people of British Columbia is a
fine paean in prose. Were he a
pessimist there would be no message, no 'Premier' McBride. The
whole deliverance is encouraging
for those who are struggling fora
home and a competency. Its effect
will be stimulative to every industry and business and attract in ever
increasing volume the capital required to explore, develop and operate. The message will be given
world wide publicity and accepted
as the conscientious expression of
one who knowe and takes a pnter-
nal interest in all that concerns the
people. An ounce of optimism is
worth more than a ton of knock or
faultfinding. And Premier Mc
Bride will be remembered for bis
gift of inculcating good cheer and
spreading his inspirational message
broadcast throughout the land.
TRANSITION OF THE WEST.
Canada is now passing through
a period of unprecedented prosperity and growth. The returns in
every department of government
show large increases and the revenue piles higher and higher. It is
one of the _iarvels of the age to
see the wave of immigration rolling
on to what were considered twenty-
five years ago and less time inaccessible and valueless wilds. Edmonton in those years was considered
the ultima thule of-all civilization
then and in the future. Peace river
country was considered no man's
land, fit only for fur traders and
roving Esquimaux. Tne disillusionment of these prognostications
has been very pronounced. Settlers have pushed right on to the
arctic circle, seeking some particularly choice location for the future
town and city. The climate was
thought inhospitable and unfavorable to crop raising ; now the best
wheat in the world is grown right
under tbe corona of the aurora bo-
realis. Unnumbered myriads of
people will yet inhabit this land,
condemned and berated by adventurers aud explorers and ignored
by past governments. The great
trek of .eastern Canadians and other
choice settlers into the northwest
has opened the eyes of drowsy
statesmen to the vast possibilities
of this wheat growing empire. The
transition of this country into long
furrows and thrifty homes illustrates tbe potency of pnblicity.
The same marvellous transition
will take place in the Similkameen
when its resources are given due
publicity. Instead of wheat this
district will yield grains of gold
and platinum, tons of copper and
the other minerals that abound.
The northwest would still have
remained a wild west but for the
persistent and systematic advertising it-received. Advertise, grow
and prosper seems to have been the
progressive order in which the
northwest was developed.
NOTES  AND  COMMENTS.
President Taft will save himself
some harsh criticism if he settles
the Panama toll question before
leaving the presidental chair. He
now admits it is a question for
arbitration, but not by the independent international court at the
Hague. He was at one time a
great friend of the Hague court and
extolled its fairness, but now he
hesitates to entrust it with a very
serious international question originated by Uncle Sam. The court is
good enough for other nations but
not for U.S. William thou art uot
consistent. Never mind, Woodrovv
will do the right thing.
Increased cost of living is still
tending upward. A man in the
banking center ot Chicago was
recently charged $50 for drawing
his ' breath.' Chicago always had
the reputation of being windy.
THE WIDE WORLD.
The Brotherhood of Railway Employees
are still in a state of strike ; the C.P.R
having refused to carry out the concilia
lion award made some time ago.
Terrific new year storms rage in the
east along the Atlantic, uprooting large
elms and damaging buildings.
The British Navy has purchased one
million tons of fuel oil, and have difficulty
in obtaining tank steamers to deliver
same. American shipbuildets will, it is
probable, receive orders for some of the
steamers, all the British shipyards being
engaged with orders ahead.
Sweden has got the craze and is going
to build a navy for sea and air.
Calgary will adopt the principles of
single tax, eliminating the tax on buildings.
Jas R. Keene, the New York financier
and horseman is dead at 73. He began
as a miner in California.
At Riverside, Cal., frost has mined
about 90 per cent, of the orange crop.
The thermometer fell to eighteen degrees,
the lowest recorded.
The total income of Britain is ^"2,000,
000,000 of this amount the income tax
paying    class     receives    ^"671,000,000.
Nothing decadent or hardup about these
j figures.

LEADVILLE LUMPS.
Leadville, Jan. I, 1912—For the information of prospective purchasers:
'Leadville' is an appropriate naine for
the camp, and it resembles the Colorado
camp, in one particular at least. There
are forty four mineral compounds, each
bearing its name in the Colorado camp,
and almost identically the same here.
But the quartzites Here are like those of
Wardner, Idaho. This camp will. produce a round three hundred millions of
dollars before it is worked out. This
statement is^backed by geological proofs
which are here in plenty.
The camp is well situated for deep and
cheap  exploration  when the railroad is
built   through   the  Coquihalla pass.      A
mile  and  a  half of tunnel will tap the
centre of the camp  three thousand feet
deep below the highest croppings.    The
camp    can   be   drained   eight   or   nine
hundied feet  by short tunnels, in some
cases driven on the ore.     There is water
for power, and timber near at hand.    The
highest croppingshave an altitudeofabout
I six thousand feet.    The distance west to
i the Fraser river is seventeen miles ; the
; l|Ower two thirds of Ihe distance has less
lithao dne ahd  half to grade.    A drainage
and haulage tunnel would be driven from
i a point  oni Dewdney ,Creek,  about  five
] miles from the railroad on the Coquihalla,
I which empties into the Fraser.
I     There is no show for   building a town
on the Dewdney Creek.    The mill   town
ultimately   will    be  on  the  Coquihjall^.
The   mine  town   will  always  be  in the
camp on Sutter Creek, for shafts are the
quickest  and   cheapest   way   of  getting
men (00 and from work, and the supply
of timber for several hundred feet depth
is in and around the camp.    The camp is
not all on the Tulameen or east side  of
the divide.     There was struck last,sum
mer three leads,,all showing, galena, two
thousand   feet  perpendicular  below   the
Summit, on the westfside. ■• !■
The grade from Caaltnobt-is about'-one
and a quarter per cent, up the Tulameen
river to Leadville.    The distance is aboi^t
f'tweftty five miles _ .''■
The Government have surveyed a
wagon road -to be built into the camp
next summer.
There are six feet of snow at Railroad
Creek   and   still   snowing. Railroad
Creek   is   five   miles   northeast   of   the
camp on the pack trail.

RAILWAY.
According to President J. J. Warren the
Ket.le Valley railway will be completed
to the trans-Fraser bri.l_e at or near Hope,
where iunction is made with the main
line of ihe Canadian Pacific, by the
autumn of 1914. This will fully met t ihe
requirements pf ihe legislation under
which 'construction is b.ing provineially
aided, and provide a more direct and
satisfactory connection between the eoast
and the population centres of the Kco-
tenay very considerably sooner 1 hah the
majority of British Columbian)- had even
dared to hope.
Construction   is   now   being   actively
advanced between Midway and  Merritt,
270     miles,     trackage      having     been
completed over 46 miles out of Midway,
and it being intended as soon as the line
has been officially inspected, to inaugurate a limited   train  service  thereon, for
accommodation of settlers, many of whom
are   (with   assurance   of   transportation
facilities)   now  going  into  the  district.
From the steelhead at Mile 46 through to
Penticton, a  distance  of approximately
ninety  miles,  every  foot  is under con
struction ; while at Penticton, just now
an   exceedingly    busy    and    prosperous
little city, there have been  established
commodious   docks,   creditable   station
and freight warehouse buildings, and a
first-class tourist hotel, which is already
proving a most valuable  acquisition to
the district.   On the section of 135 miles
between Penticton and Merritt about one
thousand  men  are  engaged, while steel
has already been laid from Penticton to
Trout Creek crossing, at which point a
massive steel bridge is to be erected and
from which point access is had to West
Summeiland.    Grading has  been   virtually completed between Trout Creek and
Osprey  Lake,  thirty  miles,   and   Otter
Summit    into    Merritt,    another   thirty
miles, the steel  has been put down and
trains are now being operated, to very-
considerable advantage of residents and
I the travelling public.
On the Coquihalla division, which
branches off from the K.V R. main line
some twenty five miles south of Merritt,
to extend on to Hope and a connection
there with the C.P.R., a contract has
been let for the first thirteen miles and
on this section men are already at work.

of the furnace, my dear.'
Doctor—' Do you talk in your sleep?'
Patient—' No I talk in other people's.
I'm a clergvman.'
'I presume you never quarrel with
your wife ? ' 'Certainly not,' replied
skimpy little Mr. Hennypeck. 'I'm
merely a husband, not a lion tamer."
' I remember you cured me of the same
trouble a dozen years ago. Why don't
you use the same treatment now ? ' 'A
dozen years ago?' echoed the doctor.
" My dear sir, the medical profession has
made wonderful strides since then, and I
couldn't think of such a thing.'
Lady at telephone—" Will you pleare
send two pounds of dog biscuit, please ? '
' Who for ? ' ' Why. the dog of course.'
