P.O. Granted.
Copper I7j{c.
'The B. C. Copper Co. is vigorously
pushing the development of Voigt camfl
with itssixty or more mineral locations
and other nearby properties, in all about
one hundred under bond to this entea'
prising company. About sevehty-fi\*
men are employed by the B. C. Co. vihic"
includs drillers, miners, engine men, ex
perts, assayerjisupjjn^e^e^Hrt, foreman,
engineer, teamsters and laborers. Regular and continnous shiftsTM^jiybrking in
the camp and four horse. lo_ds ofjsupplies
and material are on the roarWrom Princeton almost hourly. Unusugl activity in
Voigt|:auip may be takeu a$'an iiiilScation
that the prospects are particularly bright
and inviting for permanent mining opera
tions. It is certun that no caiiip has
been developed with greater energy and
with such - satisfactory results. High
grade copper gold ore possessing tbe
constituent ek ments for easy treatment
is the secret for unwonted energy in
preliminary workings, of course the B. C
Copper Co. has no detailed information
to make public but there are general evidences which are unerring guide to the
onlookers as to the permanent operations
now in hand The value and qu inity of
ore in Voigt camp have been- ascertameA
to a degree of certainly thai warrants
payments to owners and the conclusion
of negotiations. The life of the copper
mining section extending along the upper
Similkameen river depeiulsjaigely upon,
the results obtained in Voigt camp, The
B. C. Copper Co. has shown a commendable spirit of euterprise and its officials
have set a pace for quick and businesslike
development which reflects the highest
credit upon the whole ompan3'. That
success may attend all their efforts is the
desire of every progressive mine owner
and resident.
It is reported on reliable authority that
the United Empire Coal and Copper
rniniug^>ropatlj^O-i Onemile is aEout to
change ownership-the purchasers being a
strong company of.Toronto Coball financiers. Tms Title prop rty has' been developed to a stage that admits of no
doubt as to its large values in Coal and
Copper. The great Northern railway has
recentlvjlaid track to the United Empire
and shipments of coal are intended on a
large scale as soon as machinery is installed.
On the Silver Dollar, Copper Mountain,
Geo. Aldons has been drifting on thjplbo-
foot level and has nine feet of ore in
sight. On the Ada B, Princess Maud,
Triangle Fraction and other mineral
claims satisfactory development work has
been carried on for the B C. Copper Co',
all being under  bond to this company.
A.   R.   Bowen  and  G.   C.  Channel of
Boston, Mass., mining men and investors,
are here and"are being shown mineral re
sources by R  S. Bates.
F. R. Weekes, mining engineer and
expert of New York, is at Voigt camp
for the B   C. Copper Co. _e»^
E. F. Voigt has been successful fn obtaining a post office from the department
and soon mail can be addressed 'Voigt
Camp P. O.' an efiort will also be made
to extend the Dominion telephohe line
via Ashnola from which point service
jwoutd be given to the various outlying
c imps.
Hughie Campbell brought- down a
fine sample of galena from Whipsaw
crossculting a large body of it .and proving the existence of rich ore in quantity.
No one with a mineaal bent, having
seen the Whipsaw properties, doubts the
earmarks of a great camp to develop
he""e shortly. '
A deal is in progress for the bonding of
the Eureka group to the B. C. Copper
Co., for $50,000. The group is near Nelson and runs high in copper.

There are ten construction can_ps.be-
tween Trout creek and the summit coming toward Osprey lake, but men are
scarce and there are only 350 employed
where it was expected ioco wo. 11 be
steadily at work on this portion of the
Kettle Valley line. The line from Pen
ticton to Midway is about half done and
is all under contract. G. W. Buck is in
charge of the locating survey party ou
the K V., not Mr. Black, as erroneously
stated on another page. A Grand Forks
paper states that President Warren is au
thority for the statement that the Kettle
Valley will be connected up between Penticton and Princeton this fall. The dirt

WORLD WIDE
The total value of the minerals produced in British Columbia in 1911 was $23,-
499,072; for 1910 the value was $26,377,
066. The decrea.se for 1911 was laigely
due to the coal strike of coal Winers, compelling eight months of idleness.
While the British national debt has decreased $390,000,000 iu six years, the
debts of other countries have increased
as follows:
United States $310,000,000
Germany    400,000,000
France    315,000,000
Russia 1,000,000,000

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The mania  for  suicide  in  Denmark  and   the  other  Scandinavin
countries has  reached such alarc.-
ing proportions that an anti-suicide
movement is advocated.   The promoters of the movement  urge  that
newspapers   should   be   restrained
from . publishing sensational details
of all crimes more  especially  that
of suicide; and they also propose to
ask   for  legislation that will make
the law more  restrictive in regard
to^carrying firearms and obtaining
poisons.    Every close   observer of
the effect of sensational   murders,
robberies, scandals, seditions, filthy
and profane literature published in
newspapers    and     periodicals,     is
aware that the mind  off the  young
particularly is  susceptible  of taint
from these sources.    It is  possible
to pollute a whole community, aye,
and country, by newspapers  retailing crime and vice.    Suicide is the
last resort of the criminally wicked,
depraved and  demented  and   they
d> it chiefly  because  of  the   sensational glamor  thrown around    it
in the yellow journal or periodical.
ance oftiis position would command
deferential courtesies. Mr. Borden
and his colleagues went to London
to discuss the imperial question of a
navy contribution from Canada.
No self-respecting Canadian denies
that his duty as a loyal subject lies
in a reasonable means of protection
from a common enemy o/the empire.
Were the Dominion an independent
nation a navy would be necessary
and in the building of it she
would develop her own resourceful-
nessin skilledtuechaniesand seamen
and those natural resources, iron,
lead, copper, coal, etc. MSty consideration of our own development
and upbuilding be' kept well in
view • while advocating contribution to the imperial navy.
Canada is young and growing and
requires some nursing still.

IN THE BIBLE, THE ETEBNITY
OF PUNISHMENT IS PLAINLY
SET FORTH.
Editor Star—Sir : The Church of England, as also the Presbyterian, Methodist
and Lutheran Churches, in their written
declaration, which are signed by every
licensed minister, with his own hand,
the following declaration or its equivalent is made. "That Holy Scripture con
taineth all things necessary to Salvation;
so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor
may be proved thereby, is not required
of any man, that it should be believed as
an article of Faith, or to be thought requisite or necessary to Salvation." The
reverse of this is equally true, that whatsoever is taught therein must of necessity
be believed as an article of Faith.
The teaching of the Christ is "Depart
from me y cursed into everlasting fire
prepared for the Devil and his angels."
Matt. xxv. 41.
The following is from Jude 6 and 7. 'The
angels which kept not their first estate,
but left their own habitation, he hath re
served in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha and the
cities about them in like manner giving
themselves over to fornication and going
after strange flesh, are set forth as an example suffering the vengeance of Eternal
fire.'
In Revelatiou xiv. 9. 10. n. we read
"If any man worship the beast and his
image aud receive his mark in his forehead or in his hand, the same shall
drink of the wine of the wrath of God,
which is poured out without mixture, into the cup of his indignation; and he
shall, be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the Holy angels
and in the presence of the Lamb; and the
smoke of their torment ascendeth up  for
ever and ever; and they have no rest day
nor night, who worship the beast and his
image and whosoever receiveth the mar
of bis name."
Such teaching might be multiplied indefinitely, but the limited space you allow does not permit of our proceeding
further; the above is the teaching of Holy
Scripture of the Bible, he who disregards
it,does so at his peril.
We remain
Yours truly

DEER TO BE CONSERVED.
An aggation to reduce the number of
deer that can be killed by each hunter
from rive to four or three, has been aroused in the neighborhood of Princeton,
says Game Warden Brvau Williams, by
the large number of dead deer brought
into the town last season. At present
the law allows each hunter to kill five
deer in each season. In consequence of
this liberal allowance, it has often hap--
pened that as many as thirty dead deer
are sent into Princeton in a- day. This
has aroused the. people to a sense of the
great destruction done to the herds.
At present deer, especially the mule
deer, are saia to be ver3' plentiful, but
the inhabitants are getting alarmed lest
the iucrease in the herds may be retard
ietl by the anvent of a large number of
hunters from the south.
The report iu regard to the hunting
prospects are uniformly good with the
exception of the moun&in sheep in the
Similkameen, which are not nearly ,so.
numerous as was hoped. The golden
eagles are blamed for preying on the
young lambs. It is for this reason, that
the government has declared a bounty
on the golden eagle.—Rossland Miner. -
FORESTRY CONVENTION.
Arrangements are now well under way
for the Dominion Eorestry Convention
to be held in Victoria, B.ig., on Sept. 4,
5, & 6. The Convention is called by the
Canadian Forestry Association on the invitation of the Government of- British
Colnmbia. Sir Richard McBride, Pre
mier of _t»ands, are taking a keen persona)
interest in the meeting, and will address
the delegates. Mr. James Lawler, Ottawa, Secretary of the Canadiau. Forestry
Association, has been both on the Pacific
Coast and as far east as Quebec City, arranging the details of the meeting, and
he states that great interest is being taken
in it. The railwjps have agreed to give
greatly reduced Fares for the round trip
to delegates from all parts of Canada, and
a number of noted speakers have sieni-
fied their intention of being present, and
ever thing looks favorable for a large
gathering.
