molybdenite Valuable for Armor Plating—Asbestos at O.K. Palls-
Coal Shipping.
Asbestos has been found on Manard's
ranch, near Okanagan Falls. It is said
that the owner has been offered $350,000
for the property, provided an average
depth of three inches is maintained the
whole length of the vein. '
The payroll of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co. for the month of April was
5175,907. Just consider what the payroll
in Princeton will be wheu the wheels of
industry are all a-humming.
Dick Fitzgerald has struck a true fissure vein of rich galena ore on the Mol-
lie Reilly, Whipsaw camp. He is getting assays made and expects them to
run high. He says Sam Spencer has a
great silve -lead proposition, which is
being developed.
The Vermilion Forks Co. are shipping
coal regularly now and it is understood a
large increase in the underground force
will be made at once.
Prof. Walker, of Toronto university, is
making an investigation of the mineral,
molybdenite, for the Dominion government. If any person knows of the ex
istence of molybdenite in Princeton district it will interest them to know that
it is extremely valuable for armor plating
"ton battleships. In appearance it resembles graphite and leaves a trace on paper.

Purchase of Ground and Survey made
—Proposition Looms Large.
Matters are assuming definite form in
connection with the establishment of a
large cemeut works on property recently;
owned by_£he United Empire Co. on
Onemtlisr It is reported that some 80
acres of mineral land have been sold to
a company, stockholders of which have
interests in cement works at Owen Sound
Ont. and at Calgary, Alberta.
Nothing could be learned fi&r publication from the promoter, J. George, who
Is here, ostensibly, for tl/e purpose of
making preliminary arrangements for
tbe acquisition of ground 'and organization generally. It is, however, a well
known fact that the mineral clay, rich
in cement constituents, is abundant on
the United Empire.
A large initial expenditure is necessary
to construct cement works and both men
and material will be required, the former
to erect buildings and install plant and
the latter for the various purposes of
manufacture, shipping and development
The Great Northern is expected to put in
a spur to the works. A large force of
men will be employed when the work of
construction begins in the next few
weeks.
THE PRINGLE DRAMATIC CO.
Princeton playgoers had a rare treat
for three nights last week in the presentation of drama ranging from comedy to
the melodramatic, from the almost tragical 'Reaping the Harvest' to the burlesque 'What Happened to Tones.' The
Pringle Stock Co. are undoubtedly the
strongest and best equipped in histrionic
talent of any company yet appearing on
the stage here. They are not merely
actors with prescribed gesticulations and
mannerisms which are non-emotional in
effect, but they interpret characrer with
such telling emphasis as to cause the
real laugh, the real tear, and these with
a spontaneity from the weaker sex in the
audience which proved their quicker
mental perceptiveness and better ability
to appreciate. It would be a labor of
love to review the plays at length and
critically weigh and analyze the leading
characters, but space forbids. Mr. and
Mrs. Pringle in their leading roles certainly proved their right to rank high up
in the galaxy of that stellar firmament
to which all actors aspire and only the
good attain. Princeton awaits their return.
CANCEL EIRE PERMITS.
Extra Vigilance to Prevent Forest
Fires—Wardens Alert.
Fire Warden Coulthard received a telegram from Chief Gladwin last week to
cancel all permits to set out fires from the
12th of July. Restrictions may be further applied and made very stringent to
prevent destruction of timber or other
property. The present dry spell has
moved the government to redouble precautions and save our forests from entire
destruction.
The origin of every fire, must be followed up and the guilty ones punished
to the limit of the law. At the coast
large tracts of country have been burnt
recently, entailing a heavy expense on
the government in maintaining a. big
force of firefighters.
The careless dropping of a lighted
match, the emptying of a smoker's pipe
or the stub of a cigar thrown away have
caused much damage, but the greatest
source of danger is from careless campers and clearing fires. The government
has acted wisely in prohibiting permits
and every person should assist the wardens in the discharge of their duties and
the prevention of destructive fires.
TULAMEEN PUT1NDM
Saving   Precious    Metal   by
Primitive Method was
not Success.
No Doubt Platinum Mining would Pay
on Tulameen if Scientific
System Adopted.
[Continned.from June 22.]
Tha early method of separating the
platinum from associated mineials in
concentrates were crude in the extreme.
The platinum of the placers was a secondary consideration compared to gold, for
the primary object of all the miners in
the district was the recovery of the
gold.
Platinum does not amalgamate with
pure rnetcufy. In the first yearoFmining, tneretore, when the miner came to
clean up his concentrates, he proceeded
to separate his gold by amalgamating it
with mercury, and valuable constituents
which   would   not,'amalgamate werp dlsr

I ADT0 SERVICE INSTALLED.
Val V. Crockett of the Merritt Auto
Co., arrived in town last Thursday with
some passengers, making the run of over
seventy miles in 7 hours. For mountain
driving this may be considered good
time. The road is good, although the
grades are heavy iu places and the curves
somewhat jerky. For scenery, however,
the reuje is without a superior and good
accommodation may be found at the
Otter Flat Hotel, Tulaineen, where there
is lake bathing and fKhing. Mr. Crockett will deliver passengers between Merritt and Princeton as occasion requires"
and as parties of three or four may
want. A special service will be established at first, to be followed by a regular
one as business demands. Rates, $5 per
honr; party of four, ten hours. $40 per
day. The auto is a quick and therefore
cheap means of travel.   See adv.

P. Marquart drove in from Nicola last
Saturday and is closing his stage business
here. He was accompanied by Mr. Car-
rington.
According to an understanding among
the storekeepers their stores will close on
Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p. tn.
The change is made/owing to discontinuance of through Nicola stage as heretofore.

A large number of settlers, with R. H.
Parkinson as guide, have taken up land
between Trout creek on Okanagan lake
and Fivemile creek, along the line of the
Kettle Valley railway. The soil is good"
and adapted to fruit growing.
The stork seems/to make its home in
this section, where the climate is suitable
for so many purposes. In those countries where the population is decreasing
or at a standstill these wonderful birds
might be introduced with benefit and the
upbuilding of the nation.

NEW BUILDINGS.
sy-
Contract for Hospital has been Let-
Business Buildings.
D. M. French is giving some finishing
touches to his new block on Bridge St.,
next the A. E. Howse Co's big store.
When completed it will be a handsome
addition and afford needed space for his
own expanding business, also leaving
room for two stores on the main floor,
"besides upstair apartments. Mr. French
is a progressive young man and anticipates, as we all do, a great future for
Princeton. He is helping to inaugurate
that future by enterprise and industry.
The rooms are all rented.
; Bert Irwin is building a cottage for
Geo. Freeman on Halliford Av. It will
be a snug and comfortable structure.
H. H. Avery is accumulating the material for his block to be erected on the
corner of Fenchurch Av. and Bridge St.
A. E. Fowler has the contract.
Tenders for the construction of tbe
Princeton general hospital were opened
and the contract awarded last Friday bjf^
the hospital board to A. E. Irwin, tVrf
successful tenderer. There were five
tenders submitted, the lowest being accepted. As formerly described, the building will be one-story, 38x65, plastered,
and will cost $3,250. Tbe contract calls
for the completed building by Nov. 1st.
Mr. Irwin will have a force of carpenters at work immediately and the work
will not be allowed torjag after commencement has been made.

v CANADA'S CSNSUS NEXT YEAR.
The next census of Canada will
be taken under date of June 1st,
1911, and will embrace the subjects
of population, mortality, agriculture, manufactures, minerals, fisheries and dairy products. Population wiil be recorded under the
heads of residence and personal
description, citizenship, nationality
and religion ; profession, occupation
and trade or means of living; wage
earnings and insurance; education
and language spoken, and infirmities.
Every person living on 1st June
will be entered on the schedule of
population by name, as member of
a family, institution or household,
together with place of habitation,
sex, relationship to head of the
family or household, and whether
single, married, widowed, divorced
or legally separated. The month
of birth, year of birth and age at
last birthday will also be recorded.
Entries will be made for each person to show the country or place of
birth, year of immigration to Canada if born elsewhere, year of nat
uralizatiou if formerly an alien, and
also racial or tribal origin, nationality and religion. Every person
of alien birth who has become a
naturalized citizen is a Canadian by
nationality ; and every British subject with residence in Canada, as
well as every native of Canada who
has acquired citizenship by birth
or naturalization, is also a Canadian
by nationality.
Every person having an occupation or trade will be entered for it,
bnt if employed in the census year
at some other occupation for part or
whole time he will be so recorded
also, if the person is working on
own account, the entry will be so
made. Wage earners are entered
to show the number of weeks employed in 1910 at chief ocenpation
or trade, the hours of working time
per week; the total earnings in
1910 and the rate per hour when
emploved by the hour.
Entries are required to be made
for each person showing the amount
of insurance held at date of the
census, upon life, as well as against
accident or sickness, together with
the cost of such insurance in the
census year. Under the heading of
education and language records will
be taken for every person of five
years of age and over, showing the
number of months at school in 1910
and  if the   person   can  read  and
write, and the language commonly
spoken by each person. The cost
of education in 1910 for persons
over 16 years of age at college,
convent or university is also called
for.
The last question on the schedule
of population relates to infirmities.
It calls for a record of each person
having an infirmity. If blind,
deaf and dumb, crazy or lunatic,
idiotic or silly, a record thereof will
be made in the proper column, and
the age at which the infirmity appeared.
As the census will be taken next
year it is important that every adult
should be informed as to what is
required of him or her and Star will
be pleased to publish any information that will assist in this great
national work.

TULAMEEN PLATINUM.
From First Page.
commercial value of the property began
to be realized, the couceutrates that
would not amalgamate with mercury
were washed in a g"'d p«" an,fl the plati
Big Time & Money (Saver for Travellers
num separated by this method. Natur
aHv this platinum was not^_very pure,
frequently much chromite or magnetite
being also present. This, however, was
invariably taken into account by local
dealers, who made a price, affording a
margin to protect themselves from any
loss by reason of impurities.
As no systematic operations for the recovery A platinum primarily, have as yet
been undertaken, the methods of separation have not improved. So far as at
present known the mineral does not
occur in commercial quantities in any
other association than in the placers
Though a few prospectors have in recent
years been engaged in a search for platinum in situ,' no success has as yet been
■*> attained in this direction, and it is ex-
e tremely doubtful if it ever will be. The
placers, therefore, are the only available
source. From these the platinum must
necessarily be recovered by the usual
methods employed in the placer mining
of gold.
In reference to the separation of plati-
uum from gold and other heavy minerals
eoncentrated in the washings, an allusion
to certain experiments carried out by Dr.
T  D. Day  and   Prof. R. H. Richards, at
Portland in 1905,  on   the black sands of
the Pacific coast, may be  of service.    In
these experiments it was found that plati-
r   f   num and the platinum metals had a curi-
^X^bus  relation   to~"meicUiy,  fin,   tu quote
(J      from the published account of the inves-
r^Ligations : 'So  long  as the sodium amalgam is rich in sodium  they amalgamate
perfectly,  but   as soon  as the sodium is
spent    the   platinum   metals   leave  the
amalgam and refuse to remain combined
with it.     This   property    will  prove  of
value  in  cleaning platinum  metals, for
they  can  at  first  be separated from the
said metals  with  the gold, and then by
simply standing  in   water, the gold and
platinum   amalgam  part into gold amalgam aud free platinum  grains which can
easily be separated  in the pan.    The indications  are  that this property may be
used for commercial separation as well as
j£pr assay, if the  sodium does not  make
the expense too  high.   The cleanup barrel or   barrel    amalgamator  may  prove
suitable for  the treatment on a commercial scale with sodium amalgam.'
There are, no doubt, placers in the
Tulameen district that would well repay
a reasonable capital outlay in an endeavor to recover platinum therefrom ; more
especially so, in view of the present high
market value of the metal ; but here, as
elsewhere, successful results cannot be
expected without the exercise of intelligence and competency in the direction
of operations.

the Tulameen district for a period of 18
years enflinf* iQngwaso^Sfiii miTwps, valued at $45,892.

COPPER
handbook™
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:   25.

world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology-, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,

mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference

Tbe-miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.

milling, leaching, smelting fcnd refining.
The copper consumer needs the book

afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one band, 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.
