Direct railway communication with the coast is essential to the life and progress of the Sinilkameen, Boundary and Kootenay districts;
Kettle Valley railway   (C.P.R.)  building now—Vasl field for prospectors—Investors in real estate or mines buy now and save money.
SUMMIT CAMP ALIVE
Rich  Silver   Ore   Struck   on
the Treasure Mountain
Mining Claim.
Granite Creek Placers Yield  Yellow
Metal and Platinum—Railroad
Creek Camp.
After years of dormancy old Summit
camp is awaSening to the mystical touch
of capital combined with energy and enterprise. Spokane mining men have re
cently carried out development on the
Treasure Mountain mine which exposes
ore of such high grade and quantity as o
leave no doubt of the birth of another
great mining camp. Under the- guidance of W. Dornberg Treasuse Mountain
looms large as an ore producer. In the
face of a tunnel 104 feet in length there
is froa.^5 to 36 igthes of pure galena ii.
a chute now 50 ft. long     Tnis tunng- will
—be-extend'ed 100 feet now a__r:by the
first of OcLo.ber a contract will be let
which will cover the winter's develop
ment operations. A depth of 185 feet at
taiued and this wiil increase as the work
advances in the tunnel.. Assays average
from 180 to 300 ozs in silver. Col. N. E.
Linfaey, mining expert, id company with
J. Goldstein, W. W- Dreyfoos and Andy
Jensen, recently visited Treasure Mountain mine, going via Tulameen and the
Summit camp trail, and brought with
them some"Tine sampres. They are all
enthusiastic over the exposure of solid
galena ore and the dump is growing visi-
blv with th's valuable product. They
are all anxious to get this ore to transportation but until a wagon road is made
it is impossible to reach Tulameem where
the end of the railway is hoped for soon.
If a rightofway were cut out and some
grading done this fall   it  would  aid   ore
'hj^uting on__j£^_^J^j____ _v^_ijd thus
enconrage mining. A large amount of
supplies will be required this winter. The
energy-wit_t*\vft___"tfae gefTlemen "named
have taken hold of Treasure Mountain
proves that they are not mere vapid, vocal miners but business investors who
want quick action on their.money. ,3uqMi
men deservVlo make good.
R. A Lambert, Well known  in  placer
.mining circles in the early days of Yukon _jnd Atlin, is bmWiiig a tl&ilP'on
Granite cr?E_~_ear the north fork, from
which he will build a flume to carry the
creek at low water. He expecteds to
reach good pay in gold and platinum at
the bed of the creek in the canyon and is
extending the flume. 850 feet for that
purpose and will use about 10,000' feet.
of lumbei itreohsfrucfipn. He is giving
employment to some eight men 'at present. As there is no other wagon road
up Granite creek the difficulty of packing
in provisions and lumber is very great
and tedious, in one place having to use
aerial transportation on a wire rope. The
suggestion is made to extend the wagon
road from Capt. Holmes's ranch to the
North Fork coal mines and thence to
Badger creek, giving access to arable
land and a large pine, spruce and fir timber area along upper Granite creek. In
talis opening up new countrv the mining
industry along Granite and Newton
creeks would be very much assisted. Mr.
Lambert is deserving encouragement in
this respect. He has-spent a lot of
money in former years trying; to reach
the bed of Granite creek, twice losing
the dam he constructed. His success
now will act as a strohg incentive
to tbe placer miuing industry in this section.
Chas. Camsell, Dominion gelogist, was
in town Mondav, having come from
Bridge river, Lillooet district, via Merritt
and'Tulauieen." He visited the diamoudi
ferdte*di8trict near Tulameen but had
nothing new to add to his report still in
the hands of the government printers at
Ottawa, for which many interested persons are anxiously waiting. Mr. Cam
s .11 goes from here to Vic____rNph~i___n"lie
will present a paper to the Canadian^Iin-
ing Institute which meets there shortly.
Mr. Camsell would have been delighted
_Tx__it a number of the camps in _Pnnce
ton district but his time was limited and
he took*a run to Voigt camp for a brief

RAILRO AD CREEK CREAKLETS.
Railroad-.Seek, Aug. 8.—J. C. Reilly
.isJbuilding a cabin oh the Superior group
at the mouth of Railroad creek. He and
his two partners, Fraser and Johnson, are
well aware of the fac *hat they have got
a good thing.
Mr. Dornberg is taking intrkils for his
tunnel. He shows the right spirit, which
seems to be catching He is a Spokane
man, the place'from which the money,
nerve a__-._-_j__gence came to make,
I may say, all of the camps alonsj
the Boundary. Come along Spokane
capital: theref's Sfiii plenty 01 good mining investments.
The latest strike is arsenical iron on
Bear Creek, resembling some of the good
ore on the Nickel Plate. Hedley.
Jas. Kelly-and another man-are working on Gold mountain and have got very
good ore.
The old claimB on Granite creek are be
ing re prospected with good results. The
latest strike there is a free milling proposition and was made-^by our old^chum,
MUie Gaynor. The quartz showed coarse
free gold. -.
It is hardly necessary to say that the
use of capital is.lall that this country
lacks. When investors take hold then
the industries in connection with mining
will be a permanent support to the cities.
ON THE LAST LAP
Kettle    Valley   Contracts   in
: Coquihalla  Pass  to
Close   Gap.
Construction of Interprovincial Road
—Prospectors   Arraigned   for
Killing Game.
The Kettle Valley line is losing no time
in Us progress towards Hope. Mr. E. W.
Ericksou arrived in Hope Tuesday evening over the Coquihalla trail and announced that tl e tracks are within
twelve miles of the summit, that is, within 46 miles of Hope. The surveyor^!
camp was three miles, west of the su__tt
on Monday. Within a week the con
struction work of the Kettle Valley R.R.
will have reached' the long debateable
ground between the summit and Hope.
—Hope Review.
G. W, Buck and party of surveyors are
now working in the canyon between
Roanie camp and'Peterson's ranch, about
five miles from Princeton on the Kettle
Valley railway. The located line, crosses
the Tulameen at the Granite bridge, traversing the-gfertile-.steppes of Welldo it
_*tj_|;s around the porphyry bluffs where
BUpnbsed rich mineral claims are located,
■thence to the celebratea Roanie camp.
Fair progress is being made although the
countrv is full of precipitous 'draws,' rebutting careful scaling and nice measure-
ments. In about three weeks the line
will be at Princeton then some forty
miles will be ready for the contractors,
reaching from Princeton to the end of
steel on the west fork of the Otter. The
Kettle Valley is expected to give Princeton connection with the coast via Merritt
'within eighteen-months, saving about
four hundred miles as compared with the
route now used via Spokane—for such
a blessing the people will be ever thank
ful.
From the Hope Review it is learned
that a camp ot Kettle Valley railway engineers will be established in two weeks
in Coquihalla pass about two miles from
Hope. Grant, Smith & Co. have the
contract for grading from the present
Merritt endTSTthe track to Hope. It is
[SjEd the work will be pushed with all vigor poisible.
Nobody seems able up to the pr^^qp
minute to locate Jim or find out when
tAt^dirt will 'fly' on the V. V. & E.
Ten years waiting tests the patience of
the people. Come Jim, hurry up or you
and some others will be in spiritland,
where stock ond heavy grades are unknown.   .
%S
i   INTERPROVINCIAL ROAD.
W. A. McLean is making good head-
Way on  the interprovincial  automobile!
road and is camped at Bromley creek.
A considerable mileage will have been
constructed before the season closes, affording Kennedy mountain, Ninemile
and Whipsaw early wagon communication for battling ore and supplies on. An
excellent stretch of road with perfect
grading has been built in and beyond
town. The road is expected to give
Princeton, the Similkameea and the
Boundary direct communication with th'e
coast before a railway is built. It will be
one of the picture scenic routes of the
world and will give_in enormous iupetus
to tourist traffic, besides giving a decided
boost to mining and commercial enterprises generally.
THE LORE OF THE WEST.   '
Mr. and Mrs C. H. Thomas and Miss
Thomas, daughter, arrived from Tedding-
toti, Eng., last Wednesday and will spend
the sojourn of \$jfi\x dajs here among,
their sons and daughters and grandchildren of whom, Charles E. ^nd Herbert H.
are pioneers ot Princeton. At present
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas are residing with
their son vVifiiam on the banks of the
golden Similkameen. Though past the
truly patriarchal age of 80 years both
stood the long journey remarkably well
au<| are delighted to be in Princeton.
Some three years ago Mr. and Mrs. Thomas visited here, making many friend^
and forming a love for the climate and
town which now allures them to permanent residence. May they be blessed
with continuous sunshine apd many more
happy days
JWATER COMMISSION
J. F. Armstrong of the Water Rights
branch Department of Lands, Victoria,

August 14, 1912
'|;"'f RAILROAD HONG UP-
J. W. Gilmor;, who has been  attached
for two months to the engineering  corps
of the Great Northern running a survey
from Otte.-Flat westward, returned to his
home Friday last,    Work  of surveying
has been suspended pending the action
of the  British  Columbia authorities.   It
seems that the time of the Great Northern
franchise for building the road to the
coast has expired, and it is a question  if
it  will   be  extended.    Both   the    Great
Northern  and   the   Kettle  Valley   road,
now in process of construction, is headed
for the only available pass over the Hope
mountains,  and  that pass will  not accommodate two   Hues    The   road that
secures   the   pass and builds over the
mountains  holds   the   rightofway,   aud
the the other road will have to  use  the
tracks of tbe  rival  line  under lease.    It
would be but natural if the  British   Columbia government should favor a Dominion road as against the claims of one
building in from the United  States, and
in that case the Great   Northern  would
have to stand   back  and   use  its  rival's
track.    It is no more than, the Hill  system deserves, for it has had ample time
under     the     franchise   to   build clear
through    to      the   cojtst.   However   it
would work a  further hardship  on  this
•section,  for should  the Great
.Northern fail to secure an  extension of
time it will be upward of two years  be-
afore the Kettle Vrlley road will be com
pleted to the coast.—Oroville Gazttte.
When a mineral is spoken of as sectile,
it means that it can be cut in thin slices
by a sharp knife. Argentile and cerarg' •

over hills and  gulches  food,   blankets and  gun,   necessaries  for  life
and to defend himself if attacked by
wild beasts.    Whether in an  organized district or  not   a  prospector
should be  permitted  to  lessen   his
burden as much  as   possible while
engaged in his  rough and  hazardous occupation. The law of common
sense ought  to  prevail  and  favor
rather the man  who  is  adding  to
the wealth   and prosperity of the
country by his mineral discoveries,
than  the man  who   merely    kills,
game for   pleasure  and  adventure
and to satisfy his  epicurean  appetite.    It is not possible to use pack
animals at all times of the year or
in all parts of the mountains and
the   prospector   in    his   laborious
quest for mineral surely  ought  to
have some reasonable consideration
and not be subject to fines and penalties as were recently imposed on
two well known, industrious and
capable prospector citizens of Princeton. The loneliness, drudgery and
isolation necessary for prospecting
and initiative mining are enough of
hardship and privation withoutdeny-
ing a man a meal of fowl or venison.
As a change for the better it is suggested that the gold commissioner
or the game warden be authorized
to grant permits to bona fide prospectors and miners actually engaged in their callings giving them the
right to kill game any time while
so occupied.
THE.ETHFL TUCKER CO.
Playgoes were treated to a real comedy
on Monday nighn in which the acting
though light and funny called for gifts of
character port rayal which kept the au
dience in merry m.ood all the time. Not
a dull moment from the uprise to the
downfall of the curtain. 'Are You a Ma?
son?' may be 'writ' in laage type as the
biggest burlesque on Masonic signs and
secrets yet seen before the footlights.
Miss Tucker and others ol the leading
players filled their roles with well studied
effect and correct finish but the musical
specialties were weak.

July last.
The evidence of W. Knight showed
t lat he had tfieftfght aud believed that he
was still working under the old Mineral
Act which permitted prospectors and
miners to take game for their sustenance
while in the hills and actually engaged'
in the work of mining and prospecting.
Hestated that if he could not .take game
in the course of his labors at Whipsaw
it would seriously affect mining opera
tions on his property and both he and
his partner would be obliged to quit.
The deer had been killed last fall during
the open season, being five or just half
the law allowed two men. They salted
the remainder and it bung in the front of
the cabin, no attemp being made to conceal it from view of any person happening along. He thought he was in an unorganized district. The Act having been
amended, Similkameen organized dis
trict now exteudes to the eastern watershed of the Hope mountains.
The magistrate stated that there was no
doubt Mr. Knight bad quite innocently
committed an infraction of the law and
he wonld impose the minimum fine of
$1.00. The same would apply to Mr.
Day whose case was virtually the same.
G. H. Turner, has recently put into
commission tbe disabled auto which
s.ood in front of tbe Princeton Carriage
works for about a year and took a party
of nine joy riders at a 60-mile gait kicking up a cloud of dust that would do

repair and construction of motorcycles
and road cars. If you have a ricketty en"

SPRUCE LEADS FOE PULP.
Spruce, of which there is considerable
in Princeton District, continues to bold
its as the most important of Candi .n pulp
woods. In 1911, according to a recent
bulletin of the Forestry Branch of the
Department of the Interior, over four
fifths of the wood comsumed in the pulp
industry was of this species. The total
increase of 73,801 cords in-pulp wood
consumption between 1910 and 1911 was
almost entirely confined to this species.
Balsam fir, hemlock and popular together
made up twenty per cent of the total consumption. The provitfte of Quebec is
Etill at the head of the provinces in the
pulp industry^, cosuining 58 per cent of
the total pulp' wood cut. Ontario used in
1911 nearly one third, and New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and British Columljia
together cosumed approximately one
fifteenth of the total.
Balsa,m fir is coming more generally
into use as a pulp wojd. It has been
found that up toiforty per cent of this
species can be u6ed with spruce to produce good paper. As a^esult balsam fir
is now worth $6.40 per cord, or 6g<!CenJgj.
per cord more than 1910. Spruce is
worth $6.37,'an increase of 42 cents per
cord over 1910.
; The jnechajjical process, from which
4he buHB&df 'tiewspaper "Stock is1 m_de
Continues to be the main source of pulp
upplv with 60.'4 per cent of the total
Canadian product. The sulphite process
^0suia;e<J> jj.earlj!,TJne thi-d and* the re-
mairider, nearly eight percent was manufactured by the soda process. This last
is the method by which kraft paper, now
coming largely into use, is made.
The manufacture of saw-mill rt.fuse into pulp has begun in Canada during the
past year. It is estimated that if the
material which goes to waste in the
woods and mills of the Dominion weie
made into pnlp^the product would be
greater in amount 'tbat5_'at prese__~_a#d_.
