Voigt Camp Gives Much Promise of
Permanence—Government
Builds Roads.
• W. B. Dornberg, in charge of development work on the Treasure Mountain
mine kt Leadville, was in town last Saturday on a business visit. He is pushing
on a lot of work preparatory for steady
mining operatfons. All-winter supplies
must be laid down at camp soou, as,
owing to the altitude about 5,000 feet,
snow comes early. Assays running as
high as $200 per ton have been obtained,
which is proof that Treasure Mountain is
no misnomer. In any event, a great min
eral zone is in process of development
and the owners are entitled to a large
recompense for their energy and the
spirit of venture which leads them to invest in a camp where the difficulties of
transportation are so great.
Gwynne P. Gribbins, representing mining capital of London, Eng., accompauied
by N: Thompson, of Vancouver, arrived
from the coast his week and proceeded
to the upper Tnlameen to investigate
mining propositions. It is understood
that Col. Stevenson, the veteran mine
owner and prospector, has induced the
gentlemen to visit this district with a
view to investment.
Capt C. D. Trask, of San Francisco
representing a large gold milling and extraction plant, as well as capital of that
city, has been in Princeton for some
weeks past in connection with mining
business. He was the guest of J. Oswald
Couthard during his_stay.
They Came, Saw and were Pleased.
IO. Jeldness, capitalist, Spokane; J. Murphy, superintendent of the celbrated Her
cules mine, Idaho; John Blackburn and
C S. Jennings, Spokane, were a party
visiting Leadville last week, arriving
back in Princeton Sunday evening. The
first three named are eminent in the mining field and are associated with some of
the largest and best dividend payers in
the United States. The mere mention of
the Hercules mine is enourgh for anv
person at all conversant with mining operations in the west. It has paid several
million dollais in profit"?, the character of
the ore being very similar to the silver-
lead at Leadville and Whipsaw. Their
presence here was in consummation of a
deal by which the old Indiana group is
merged into the B. C. Leadville. The
initial stages of this deal having been
passed, immediate steps will be taken to
develop the property.   A force of miners
will be employed double shift as soon as
supplies and accommodations can be provided.
Lee Marx, capitalist, of Spokane, has
been at Leadville, investigating this
promising camp. So far, he has nothing:
but words of encouragement for the whole
country from a mineral standpoint.
P. W. Gregory, P.L.S., and his assist-,
ant, B A. Yanciall, with a partv of ten,
are pushing on the survey of the road to
link Leadville, or as it was- formerly
known, Summit camp, with the town of
Tulameen. It is intended to build this
road as spon as possible, giving transportation by sleigh this winter for the high
grade ore of this camp.
■ .Voigt camp expects soon to have the
priceless boon of direct postal connection*
with the outside world. The mail matter going to this camp is increasing rapr
idly, and its importance demands that
the mail should be handled without delay in transit.
J C. Catlett, of Barkerville, Cariboo,
writes, renewing his subscription to Star,
and states that they had the first snow
storm of the season on August 28. He is
foreman on the Nugget Gulch hydraulic
claim, which has prospect of a successful
run this fall, owing to plenty of water.
W. C Fry, the well known placer mining man of Vancouver, was in town tl.i.
week.
B.C. Copper Co. Building.
The B. C. Copper Co., will soon have
two bunk houses, 40x80, ready for occupation, located on the Ada B. and Silver
Dollar. Splendid showings of ore are observed in all the workings in Voigt camp.
Five diamond drills and some eightv men
are working steadily. Tunnrels and other
work of a permanent character are making good headwav, in some instances
with a double shift. Preparations indicate that the B. C. Copper Co. will vigorously operate all winter.
Ernest Rice has struck a fissure vein of
galena ore on his property on the west
slope of Hope mountains near Leadville
camp. He is in 50 feet with a tunnel
and has five feet of ore which assays high
in silver and lead.
Bert Bryant, an old time resident of
Princetm, is a visitor here on mining
business.
I C. S Jennings, of Spokane, who knows
every mining camp in this district and is
an expert of wide reputation, escorted a
party to Leadville last week, Mr. Jennings has unbounded faith in this
country.
Geo. Aldons, R. Cramer and P. Larson-
have gone to Roche river to do development work and prospect on mineral properties there.
Dick Fitzgerald has opened up 24
inches of galena vein matter on the
Spotted Horse, Whipsaw creek. He will
continue development   as  his   finances
will permit. He is getting his trap line
in shape for winter', and hopes to make
a few dollars out of fur. He says deer
are very plentiful in the Nine-mile country and are in fine condition; grouse,
also, are numerous.
W. A. Davis, in charge of a gang of
ro.d builders, has gone to Whipsawl
creek, where a road wiil be made to serve
that promising silver-lead section.
A strike of 1500 coa miners is on at
Cumberland, B. C.
A German has won $3000 awarded by
the British government for the best electric safety lamp for miners.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. will
shortly establish their own agency for
selling coal iu Vancouver.
REAL   ESTATE.
The following deals have been recentlj
negotiated through McLean & Russell,
the local real estate firm:
Lot 8, block 9. from Chas. W. Hills,
Reno, Nev., to J. A. Schubert, Tulameen.
Lot 1, block 10, from John Nicholson
estate, Victoria, to Wm. J. Kirkpatrick,
Town.
Lot 2, block 34, from Henry Comber,
Victoria, to F. Stevens and Geo.Unsoeld,
Town.
Lots 14 and 15, block 19, from Ronald
Hewat, Fairview, to Orriti Allen, Town.
The townsite company has sold about
$21,000 of real estate so far this year.
BEGS PARDON.
A typographical error in the report of
the lacrosse match at Tulameen made it
appear that Princeton lost to Keremeos
'4 to 1,' when it should have read 4 to 3.
This unintentional injustice to the Princeton team is one of those annoying errors
which, though rare, may be traced to
the demand of the age for lightning
speed in transmitting thought from the
human tinpanum to cold type. Star has
never been able to afford a proof reader,
a fact which account's for one or two
grammatical and other mistakes in some
issues of this luminary. With due apologies to the team, Star hopes never to be
guilty of such an error again.
BASKET   BALL   CLUB.
The organization of the Princeton Ladies Basket Ball club, with Mrs. N.
Thompson, president and captain; Miss
Edna Lyall, manageress and treasurer,
and a strong membership of athletic and
energetic young ladies, is announced.
The ball used in the game has been ordered, and the ball in commemoration
of leap >ear to be given by .the club is
also on the order list for events. The
young ladies are to be commended for
their spirit and action in the introduction
of a pastime that is healthful while it
promotes discipline'and splendid physique.

Lacrosse Match on Friday will

Railway Construction on V.. V. & E.
Offers Faint Hopes for Months
and Months
It is generally believed that the V. V.
& E. will not build until next spring.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Waterman returned
today from a trip extending'to Banff and
other resorts on the line of the C. P. R.
•in the Rocky mountains. Mr. Waterman
is much improved in health and leaves
tomorrow for Vancouver.
Mrs. Faulds, mother of Miss Faulds,
matron of the general hospital, is visiting her.daughter.-'
C- E. Hope, a Vancouver capitalist, is in
town looking into the real estate situation.
Mrs. R. H. Carmichael, of Keremeos,
and Mr. Carmichael's mother are visitors
to Princiton.
Mistaking his companion for a deer
while hunting last week on Gambier
island, George H. Hill, of Vancouver shot
and instantly killed William Rendell.
Hunters should wear bright red touques
or caps, or a red belt.
• W. D. Lawson, of Calgary, is fn town
on a visit. Mr. Lawson was a manager
in the E. T. bank and was well known in
hockey circles some two years ago.
C. M.-Snowden aud Sam Moore arrived from Coquihalla pass today, and
state that the tote road for railway construction on the Coldwater to the Summit
is being built by the Kettle Valley people.
Mrs. Mcintosh, of Vancouver, is visiting her brother, J. J. McDonald, railway
contractor, for a few days.
A game of lacrosse has been arranged
fo- Friday, between trains, between
Keremeos and Princeton.
Parents and guardians appreciate the
teaching of vocal music in the schools.
With voices loud enough to be heard all
over town when at. play, surely, the
youngsters will respond to Miss Scott's
teaching and give vent lo their lung
power in song that will soothe and not
ruffle the savage breast.
Immigration figures for the present
year to August I show 82,783 arrivals
frcm Great Britain, a decrease of 15,000,
as compared with the same period last
year. Continental imppgration totalled
60,969, an increase of 15 000, while 65,-
900 Americans entered Canada, an increase of 11,000, as compared with the

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
September 18, 1912
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
The band concert Sunday afternoon
was a welcome break in the monotony of
the day for the stranger within the gates
and for those who-delight in this chaim-
ing entertainment. The band is doing
a good work by the uplift of music and
the civilizing and harmonizing effect it
has upon the community. It has become
a part of our civic life and must not suffer
fot want of tangible encouragement.
R. H. Carmichael, manager of the
Bank of Commerce at Keremeos, is relieving J. D Andras, manager of the
Princeton branch, who is now taking his
annual holidays. Mr. Carmichael is relieved by Gordon Dinning, of the branch
at Summerland.
The Sunkissed Similkameen' is surely
deserving this appellation for the past
two weeks. Cloudless skies, warm days
and nippy nights make a weather bill of
fare full ofelysian touches This is Indian summer, and shonld last for six or
eight weeks.

WHY?
The very genoral remark heard
wherever men congregate is; 'Very
dull and quiet; no money' Various
causes may be found for the depressed condition of business and
the stand-still state of affairs generally in this town and the Similkameen district as a whole. It is in
no vein of gloomy pessimism that
these remarks are penned, but to
point out the necessity for remedy
if the country and the towns are to
advance. There are no large industries and, consequently, no pay
rolls in and about Princeton. There
is also very little production of food
stuffs, nearly everything consumed
being imported from foreign or out
side provincial points. The contin
uous drain in sending cash out of
the country is bound to react in dull
times. If our mines are not producing and shipping, aud farm
lands lying idle and non-producing,
no other result can be expected than
stagnation. There are companies
•owning many thousands of acres ot
-agriculturaland coal lands in Princeton district which are non-productive and barred to the actual settler.
They, the companies, hold tight to
.heir land, neither cultivating, improving, mining or selling it to
those- who would be glad to farm
and settle upon it. If these wealthy
companies with from 5,000 to 20,-
oco acres were taxed in proportion
to that levied on the poor, struggling individual settler or investor
they would be more ready to sell to
those who would make some use of
the land. Thousands of acres of
good soil would thus be available,
and a large influx of population
would follow. Some pressure from
the government must be applied to
make these land and coal monopolists disgorge, otherwise the country
will be retarded in prosperity and
recurrent dull and hard times result. Another great canse of the
general depression noted above is
the procrastinating manner in which
railroad construction goes on. Concession after concession, bonus upon
bonus, extension of time beyond the
limits of business decency, all these
and more the railway companies
have received, and still they build
in  tbe  most  tantalizing, lazy and
unbusinesslike way. Faithless disregard of the terms of charter and
an unfailing demand from the indulgent governments for further
favors puts these companies very
much in the same class as the spoilt
child. Had the terms of the original charters of the railway companies been lived up to, the Similkmeen,
Boundary and Kootenay would
have had direct railway service to
seaports four years ago, and these
districts would now be basking the
general prosperity so marked in
other parts of the province, instead
of languishing in the throes of dull
and discouraging times.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A subscriber to the Star, writing
from Walla Walla, Wash., asks:
'Why is it that my paper is not received sooner? It is usually ten
days to two weeks old when it
comes to hand. It should be here
not later than three days after it is
posted in Princeton.' This is one
of hundreds of complaints regarding
the postal service. Whether under
liberal or conservative management
the postoffice department of Canada
is still as inefficient as it could be
without breaking down altogether.
Worn out, incompetent party heelers, with a pull, that ought to have
been superannuated long ago, still
hang onto their official positions,
though the public suffer loss and
inconvenience. Of course,' the political organizations have the remedy in their own grasp it they want
to exercise it, but as long as they
are indolent and indifferent regarding the public service, and care not
whether it brings discredit upon
their party and government, then a
disreputable condition will prevail.
When will men be appointed to
public positions on their merits and
ability and not'oh account of political pull and graft?
The narrowness of vision and contemptible selfishness of some people
is well illustrated in the controversy
in Vancouver over the display of
the Canadian flag on the occasion
of the visit of the Duke of Connaught, governor-general of the
Dominion. The ultra-imperialists,
jingoes, diehards and 'bleeding patriots' deny the right of the Canadian flag to float beside the Union
Jack in the decorations for the occasion. Every Canadian 'loves the
emblem of his country, just as the
Australians and South Africans do.
The incident is the first of its kind
in Canada. Nothing like it has
ever occurred in any part of the empire, and it wiil probably be the last
in Canada.
j Tbe building of a navy for Canada, to act in conjunction with the
imperial navy for the defence of the
empire, will give encouragement to
commercial shipbuilding, and thus
create a demand for our miuerals.

NEW   WESTMINSTER   FAIR.
Free attractions are always one of the
biggest problems of the cotuinittee in
charge of the provincial exhibition at
New Westminster, on October i 5. which
they have .to face. This year, in addition
to planning many new attractions in the
line of exhibits, races, sports, social
amusements and music the management
having; secured which is considered by
all who know them, the best available
talents. Among those who are to appear
here this year are five East Indian elephants, LeRoy and Paul, Ishikawa Japs,
Rex Comedy Circus, Manias troupe, and
the Lavailee troupe, who are rated the
world over as the premier attractions in
the vaudeville and theatrical world. No
expenses have been spared to s;ive the
patrons the best the e is, and there is no
doubt, that these acts which will be abso
luiely free to all who attend, will create
a great deal of favorable cotnment'and
redound to the credit of the committee
in charge.
DEAD, YET LIVING.

bury him without inquest, resusitated by
another physician after a police inspector
had suspected a spark of life, aud toda}
walking around the streets of Winnipeg
is the strange experience of S. Musik,
1009 Redwood avenue. Musik was found
to all appearance dead in bed and after
an examination Dr. Knight pronounced
life extinct. The coroner, however, was
not quite satisfied with the story that
reached him and suspecting that the man
might be suffering from cranial pressure
causing what is known as Cheyne Stoket
or suspended breSthmg", the physician
drew off some blood serum from the
spinal canal, with the result that reflex
action returned, and with some care the
man waj on his feet by morning.

Dear Edith,
In a general way I have wished you all the
good things I know of, so now I am going to descend
to the practical and give you some sound advice
from the store I have accumulated since I started
housekeeping.
Housekeeping naturally suggests the kitchen
first—its equipment and management, or in other
words, THE RANGE
My range, as you know, is a Gurnwr-Oxf ord. I
never enjoyed much of a reputation as a cook in my
you_Mjer days, so when I thought of being responsible
for three meals a day my heart sank. I imagined
myself battling all day with a sulky range, trying
to coax it into a good humour, and covered with
mortification because of late or spoiled meals. But
my dear, my Gurney-Oxford seemed to sympathize
with my inexperience.    From the day it came it
jumped right in and h__ped. It has become my
good right hand, and I go my way confident that
my Gurney-Oxford will not disappoint me.
It has the cleverest arrangement for regulating
the drafts, well named the Gurney Economizer. One
small lever put up or down does everything. The
fire will stay in all day, hardly burning any coal at
ell—then, presto ! ^ It is burning brigKUy, ready to
bake or roast. An arrangement of flues keeps the
oven always properly heated, so that the biscuits
or bread come out light and crisp and brown. Yes,
Edith, as Bob says, I have developed into " some
cook," and I often tell him he must give at least half
the credit to our Gurney-Oxford.
You will understand my enthusiasm better after
you have had your Gurney-Oxford a month or so.
Sincerely Yours,
MARY HOUSEWIFE.

BEAD, MARK, LEARN.
A writer of sound reasoning ability
gives the following good reasons why one
Should buy at home instead of placing
his patronage elsewhere, building up
other cotntnuuities to the disadvantage of
the present and future prosperity of his
own town :
Because my interests are here.
Because the community that is good
enough for me to live in is good enough
for me to buy in.
Because if I play the scab by patronizing outside business concerns, I am only
driving a nail iu my coffin, injuring my
reputation as a citizen and befouling my
home as a dirty bird.
Because I believe in transacting business with my friends.
Because I want to get what I buy when
I pay for it.
Because I contribute cash to hospitals
and any public body for the advancement
and benefit of the town, not shirking my
duty and leaving to others the burden of
promoting my own and the general welfare.
Because my home dealer carries me
when I run short.
Because every dollar that I spend at
home stays at home and works for the
welfare of my town.
Because the man I buy from stands
back of the goods.
Because I atn a loyal citizen (do not
sneeringly speak of the town's business
institutions and owners although meeting them with a deceptive smile and buttery words to gain patronage) I always
boost and leave the knocking for those
who lack public spirit and intelligence.
Because I sell what I produce here at
home
Because, if I am a merchant or dealer,
I will patronize home institutions and
our own citizens, setting them the example to patronize me.
Because the man I buv from pays his
part of the taxes.
Because when ill luck, misfortune or
bereavement comes, the man I buy from
is here with the kindly greeting, his
tirords of cheer, and his pocketbook, if
need be.
H re I live and here I buy.
