WHIPS^OREJSFINE
Assays Run from $45 to $215
per Ton in Silver and
Other Values.
Strong Ledge Indicates Permanency
—Ore Maybe Hauled Here
on Wagon.
The history of Whipsaw Camp has been
a succession of surprises and revelations
in mining. From the fragmentary surface showings down to the well defined
ledge matter there have been surprises in
every advance of development/ ypjxperts
and geologists are agreed thatr nk__ promising conditions exist and that these are
sufficient warrant for the expenditure of
money and labor to prove iu the usual
way that mineral riches are abundantly
present. The ore, the gangue and the
true fissure veins all assure the miuing
man that he can safely make preliminary
investigation on behalf of prospective
owueis without probability of losing a
cent.
On the Marion gioup and the M. & S.,
owned by Sam Spencer and wife and
Hnghie Cam£___ell, a strike h ._ been re-
centTv made which proves bevond all
doubt that Whipsaw is in the front rank
with the celebrated cainps of the world.
Ore values leavejpo i_k>_i for conjecture,
and the body, \yf__rio foot face in place
and depth of 20 feet, ought to be inviting
enough fot any investor.
The ledge matter lies between a granite
hanging wall and schist foot wall. The
exposure is made by open cuts, shaft and
tunnel, the latter being all in ore. From
a number of assays made values run from
$45 on the Marion group to $214.82 per
ton on the M. & S.
Several assays made of ore from the
Marion group and the M. &S yield valnes
as follows. Silver, 32 ozs., $16.05, g°'d,
83 cents-—total, $46.18. Silver-lead, 310
ozs., copper, 2 per cent., 68 percent, lead,
gold 60 cents—total, $214.81. Another
assay, $86.82, containing 104 ozs. silver
lead, 3 per cent, zinc, and gold.
Mr.-Baternan, of the Dominion geological surve^party, recently visited these
mineral properties and was very much
plea&edand interested \___r~_xe~~ofe~"and
the conditions, defining the veins as true
fissure. The ore is in the picture class,
specimens of which attract not only the
eye but convince one of values in the
various metals carried.
Mr. Spencer states that he could begin
shipping ore tomorrow if there were a
wagon road from Ninemile to Whipsaw,
a .distance of about 12 miles down grade.
With this road he would be able to employ a number of teams hauling ore all
winter to Princeton. No doubt, when
the Department of Works is in possession
of the data necessary, a road to Whipsaw
will be constructed.
MINES AND MINING.
/Charles Camsell, who spent the early
part of the summer in the Similkameen,
further investigating the diamont occurrences at Olivine Mountain, near Tula
meen, and has since taken in the Steamboat Mountain section^ will occupy the
fall with exploratioto/work in the Lilloeet
district.
The International Coal & Coke Co.,
Ld., of Coleman, Alta., shows net profits
in its report for 1910 of $300,097. The
total amount of its payroll for that year
was $567 974 ; average number of men
employed, 524.
Martin Burrell, M.P., will be the next
Dominion minister of mines.
J. E. McCauley is much encouraged
with the outlook on the Reco and expects
to strike the lead at any time A shift is
now in ore.
Fred Keffer, M.E , is expected here this
week and will go to Voigt's camp. It is
stated a gang of men will be at work
shortly in that camp for the B. C. Copper
Company.
CHEERFUL SUBSCRIBER.
' Enclosed find check for $2 for subscription to Star I note with pleasure the
change that is to be made in management
of Star, and shall hope to see such a rapid
growth that within a very short time it
will become the Daily Star, for there is
no reason why Princeton should not have
a population of ten thou.and people within a very few jears. Your natural resources are such that build up large cities,
and, with railroil transportation to the
large bodies of coppet ore which extend
from Ashnola to Roche river, and must
naturally be strelted near Princeton, your
city must go ahead very rapidly.'
MOST ALWAYS RIGHT.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., was in town
last Wednesda*night, leaving about nine
o'clock for Keiemeos and way points.
He is admitted to be the best campaigner
in the interior, and his forecasts of an
election are generally accepted as law.
While here he just had time to say 'How-
de-do,' and, as he disappeared in the
dark, the word ' sweep ' was heard from
him, while tbe buzz wagon vanished
around the curve out into the stilly night.
The full significance of sweep was realized
next day a few minutes after 5 o'clock
Born—On the 15th inst., the wife of S.

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Surveyor Cleveland's party, in charge
of F. Vy,, Glover, are locating the inter-
iprovincial trunk road, Waving reached the
canyons in the Siinilkatueen river. Owing
to the difficulty qp following the river it
is probable that the road will be deflected
from near Friday creek to Whipsaw.
Jim S_iowden was in town Monday,
'cbrhuig from Coquihalla, where he is en-
gaged   packing   supplies to two   Great
Northern survey parties, headed by Mr.

LITERARY & DRAMATIC CLUB.
Editor Star,—Sir/ Now that the long
evenings are upon us may I suggest t.he
formation in PritJceton of a society or
club to promote literary and debating,
musical and amateur dramatic activities.
Gatherings for such purposes would, I
feel sure, supply a gap in our social life'
and occupy us very pleasantly and profitably during the fall and winter. If those
who are interestad in such a movement
would kindly come forward or communicate with me, I should be glad to do what
I could to further such a movement,
which, I need hardly say, should be
thrown as widely open as possible to
benefit all.    Yours truly,
Sept. 25, 1911..*" James Wiiaiams.

An outcrop of coal and shale [5,100ft.]
carrying fern fossils similar to those of
No. 8 Tunnel is seen on the west bank of
the Similkam.en river on the southeast
corner of Lot 243 and south of S. V. C.
Company's No. 2 Borehole by Blakemore.
A .coal outcrop [2,100ft.] is also found
on northwest corner of Lot 3180.
A good coal outcrop [2,100ft ] dipping
north on east bank of Similkameen river]
in nurthwest corner of Lot 3181. ,
No. 9 Tunnel was driven 40 feet into I
No. 1 Coal-seam outcrop 15ft. thick of
good coal [2,270ft.] in 1908 by Messrs
Wilmot & O'Leary, of Gem, Idaho, on
Nine-mile Creek on Lot 388 near Ashnola
(2,257ft.) about nine miles south of Princeton (2100ft.) Dip N 5 degrees E 15 degrees
No. 10 Tunnel No. 1 Coal-seam two and
a half miles northeast of Princeton on a
tributary [Empire] of Onemile creek, was
driven by tbe United Empire Co., also in
1908 opening up coal [2,400ft ] of about
the same grade and character as that de
veloped by the V. F. M. & D. Co. The
United Empire Co. say enough coal ha-:
ing been disclosed to enable them to depend upon a supply sufficient to maintain
shipments on an extended scale for years.
Mr. Camsell, Dominion geologist, declares a coal outciop [2,475ft.] on Summers creek, which may probably be No. I
Coal-seam of the Vermilion Forks Mining
and Development Company.
Two miles up Summers creek the sand
stones are well exposed on the bank of
the stream, found overlaid by rtcent volcanic rocks, and fur.her below they ap
pear to dip below the surface, which are
strong indices of the coal areas or basin
b.ing increased try underlying these vol-
canics.
Thers is also an outcrop of coal  [2,300
. ft.] on the west bank of the Similkameen
river near the northeast corner of Lot 407
and  from  the character aud position of
this coal it resembles No  3 Coal-seam.'
Alexander Sharp's borehole (2900ft.)
on the Southern bank of Bromley creek,f
near the southwest corner of Lot 406, five
miles west of Princeton, was put down
853ft., passing through 17 seams of coal
from 2ft , 7ft. to 9ft. thick, aggregating
50ft. 6in. thick.
Two boreholes by the Similkameen
Valley Coal Co. (Blakemore) No. 1 Borehole (2,250ft.) near Ashnola (2377'B.M.,

THE ELECTIONS.
The  liberal   government  is  no
more and Liberalism in Canada is
but a tattered remnant of its former
greatness.    Two causes contributed
to the downfall of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and his party.    First, the annexation cry, which frightened electors
into a stampede for high protection;
second, corruption, which had got
beyond control and permeated every
department of government.    Meaningless   and   indiscreet  remarks of
some prominent politicians in   the
United States afiorded a ready text
for tbe ultra loyal flag-wavers and
silly sentiment proved stronger than
the sound doctrine embodied  in a
purely business arrangement.    No
patriotic citizen will deny that the
government deserved defeat on the
ground of corruption, in fact it had
been courting  its own destruction
by the most flagrant acts of wrongdoing on the part of its employees
and members of parliament within
its fold.
What of the future?    The rebuff
administered to a friendly neighbor
nation  by rejection of its offer for
freer trade relations is likely to react in a search in other quarters for
what Canada refused. South America will profit by our loss of reciprocity and free trade.    The Conservative party in  Canada and  the Republican party in the United States
stand for protection  and the high
tariff wall.    Retaliatory  tariff war
will begin as soon as Mr. Borden,
the new prime minister, revives the
old duties, or higher as has been intimated, of his party prior to  1896.
The friction and unpleasantries resulting from a retaliative attitude
.by both countries means militaryism
|and probable reoccupation of Can
ada   by   English   garrisons.     Mr
Borden and the Conservative party
are under promise to contribute say
at least twenty-fiv_ millions of dollars   towards   the   construction  of
dreadnoughts for Engl.aid's navy.
Thus,   in  the   long   run,   Canada
would have been much better off to
have accepted reciprocity and eventually free trade than to slam the
door in our neighbor's face.
One can only hope in these peril
ous times that American sentiment
will rise higher  and broader than
party and  overlook   the   seeming
affront.    If the people of the great
republic will show the world that
they are capable of taking a high-
minded view of their responsibilities
toward   humanity  in  general  and
adopt free trade at one stroke, not
only as a sound business principle,
but  as  tending   toward   universal
peace and fraternity, then they will
have  won  glory  enough  and the
gratitude of all peoples.   Too many
little Canadians and dwarfed British
born   have robbed Canada of any
immediate prospect she may have
had for free trade aud with  it the
honor  of having,   in   some   small
measure,   aided   in  disarming  the
nations   and   unburdening  of   the
poor.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier is a unique
figure in the history of Canada, and
will   measure   up  to   the   highest
statesman in this or  any country.
Lovable in character, clean in  his
personal record, magnetic in influence,   and  brilliant  in  ability,   he
may be said to outshine all contemporaries.    Having spent a long life
in   the   service    of   his   country,
he retires  conscious  of leaving to
posterity a record of faithful  labor
and duty  well done.    He loves his
native Canada fervently, as a true
son of the soil, and he knows what
it  is is to be falsely  accused  and
maligned as the price ot his  pure
patriotism.      The   visible  Laurier
may fade  away into  nothingness,
but tbe spirit of this great statesman
shall never depart.

FOR
A circular issued by the trustees
of the hospital and signed by the
secretary,   J.   D.   Andras,   invites
opinion from subscribers to the hospital  fund   regarding a scheme  of
incorporation whereby the government   of the   institution   shall   be
vested in those who subscribe money
for its maintenance.    The general
public now, through their trustees,
control the institution, and an improved condition is aimed at in the
increased   interest   expected   from
subscribers who  give  toward  this
charitable object, and are thus made
eligible for a seat on the board of
directors.      Subscribers   of   stated
sums will  be entitled  to a vote or
votes in  proportion to the amount
donated.    The change in  management will comment itself to the public, inasmuch as any person may,
for a contribution, become actively
connected with a work that enlists
the best in mankind for the good of
bis unfortunate brother.

mile southwest of Princeton on the west
bank of the Similkameen river near the
southwest corner of Lot 706 was put down
302ft. Tin , passing through six seams of
coal from 2in. to 5ft. respectively, aggregating ii.ft.6in* The 5ft seam was struck
at 201ft. iin.
No. 3 Borehole (2,100ft.) Princeton on
the west bank of the Similkameen river
about % mile southwest of No. I Borehole
on Lot 706 was put down 340ft.

MOST PEOPLE want to invest tbeir money where
they are reasonably sure of a good return. If the
investment is to be made in real estate there are several
things to be considered : The situation of the town, climatic
conditions, transportation facilities, and primarily the
amount of the monthly payroll. When these questions are
asked regarding Coalmont they may all be answered to the
credit of the town. The situation and climatic conditions
are ideal ; the main line of the V.,V. & E. railway runs
througnlthe town on its way to Vancouver.
The Columbia Coal- & Coke Co. operating here have practically an inexhaustible supply of a pure bituminous coal.
They are installing immediately a plant which will handle
2000 tons of coal in 8 hours—this means employment for between
800 and 900 men all told.
Figure out this payroll and see how many coal mining towns
in B C. can beat it.
In a very short time Coalmont will necessarily have a population of from 2000 to 2500 people. Will this cause real estate to rise ?
We all know the answer. Then take the opportunity that presents
itself now—buy first hand and reap the benefit of this increase.
The prices and terms are such that anyone can afford to inves
to the extent of one or two lots. They range from $175 to $550, on
terms of % cash, balance over 18 months.

On March 31st, 1900, the light of the Star first reached the earth.
That will be 12 years ago next birthday. It was at first issued as an eight-page
paper by Jas. Anderson, who, owing to the delay in railway construction and the
consequent lack of progress, transferred his interests to A. E-HHowse, on March
1^^1902. For nearly nine years Mr. Howse has been owner of the Star, excepting one year when B. Stone Kennedy operated it. Mr. Kennedy transferred his
interests to Mr. Howse aud the paper has remained in his ownership until recently
transferred to J. M. Wright, who is managing editor of the Princeton Printing
and Publishing Co. The Star is now printed in eight-page form, affording all the
space for news and advertising that the town requires. It is intended to keep the
Star fully abreast of the times, both in tbe mechanical and editorial departments.
A new office building, linotype machine, jobbing plant and presses are proposed.
To accomplish all in the program laid down tbe patronage of the" public is vital.
Send along your subscriptions, advertisements, and job printing^ No newspaper
can live without them. The interests of Princeton and district will be maintained
and defended by the Star to the best of its bumble ability—your patronage is
courteously invited.
V
J. M. WRIGHT,
P.S.—It is intended to run the Star on a Cash basis, a system that is in vogue
with successful newspapers. The necessarily small amounts for subscriptions
entail too much labor to render bills, and, in future they must be prepaid.

Discovery and Invention.
Another Dedicated Patent—Logan
Waller Page, of the diyision of good roads
of the United States Agricultural Department, has secured and dedicated to the
public a patent for a cement concrete aud
method of mixing and preparing same.
The method consists in adding to an ordinary cement and water mixture, a quantity of non-volatile mineral oil. The oil
is added before the cement begins to set,
and the quantity of oil used does not exceed 25 per cent, of the cement.
Destruction op Rats and Gophers.
An East African publication contains a
description of a method of destroying
rats and gophers, followed in Java, in
which ca:bon bisulphide is employed.
In carrying out the method a small quan
tity, usually about half a teaspoonful of
the carbon bisulphide is poured into the
rat or gopher hole, and, after waiting a
few moments to let the liquor evaporate,
the mixture of air and vapor is lighted, a
small explosion resulting and filling the
holes with poisonous gas, killing the rats
or gophers instantly. Such a process
practiced openly might be objectionable
under some circumstances, because of
dauger from fire resulting from the explosion, aud a field for invention appears
to offer itself to provide some form of fireproof gun or explosion chamber suitably
formed to be inserted in the mouth of the
rot or gopher hole and adapted to enclose
the explosion and discbarge the resulting
noxious gas into the hole.
Aerial Postal Service in Eng
LAND.—The English Postmaster-General
has arranged for the inauguration of the
'First United Kingdom Aerial Post' in
London on september~9__—Ttie aerial
mail will be collected from special letter
boxes located in several depirtmei.t
stores. It will be taken by automobile
to the Heudon aerodrome, whence an
aeroplane will carey it t i Windccr Castle
in le__J,han half an hour. From the post
office at Windsor Park the letters will be
sent in the regular way to all parts of.the
world.

TREATMENT OF DRUNKENNESS
The days of the confirmed drunkard
are numbered in New York C'ty, where
an Inebriety Board has been clothed with
full powers to provide a hospital and in
d.istrial colony for the care of and cure of
habitual drunkards. It is pointed out that
the constitution of the board is practically
a recognition of the undoubted fact that
drunkenness is a disease demanding medical and corrective treatment. Ths recog
nition has been long in taking any practical form by the people through their
governments, yet if private efforts at curing drunkenness have a measure of success why should not the state make provision for the cure of those "whose citizen
ship has been lowered, e;pecially when
the state shares in the immense return?
obtained from the liquor traffic. In British Columbia there are liquor laws which
if properly administered, will practically
eliminate the confirmed drunkard from
society. It is every citizen's privilege
and duty to help in the enforcement of
these laws, and thus conduce to the betterment of the unfortunates addicted to
this evil.   ^g^^^LJc J
