MINES AND MINERALS
Future of Mining Never More
Inviting in Camps of
This District.
Mining Men Come, See, Impressed and
Speak the Good Word—Active
Season Ahead.
E. Gordon Hardy, of the American
Smelting & Refining Co., New York,
was iuVtown this week oh his way to
GreenwOOG__a*Mr Hardy spent a few davs
at Voigt camp, his second visit of investigation. His company is the largest refining company in the world. President,
D. Guggenheim; treasurer, I Guggen
heim; chairman ex. committee, S. Guggenheim; chairman fin committee, M
Guggenheim Capital, $100,000,000. It
is not improbable that this company may
establish here.
'Bulldog' Brown came up frotn Hedlev
on Wednesday to take out naturalrzatiflrn
papers and become a good Canuck. He
is lull of enthusiasm and hope as to the
mining prospects of the Similkameen.
His own mining properties are showing
splendidly. As an official of the mineral
exhibition at Vancouver he would i e
glad to receive ore samples from all parts
of the Similkameen. Mr. Brown is bui't
on broad gnage lines and bo.sts for all
legitimate elite; prise—he proves his faith
in the mineral wealth of the district by
_iis/works.
C. S Jennings and wife are at Tula-,
meen, the former having mining interests
to attend in that section. Ce^ar creek
mining property in which Sharp & Irvine
of Spokane are interested, will demand
much of Mr Jenning's time.
Frank Bailey, M.E., is making good
progre s with his pamphlet on the resources of the Similkameen He is also,
the author of an aiticle on 'Platinum in
B.C.' published in the Mining Journal,
London, Eng., and which will appear iu
Slar lai.er.
Ross S. Craddock, consulting mining engineer of New York city, has
made' examination of the United Empire coal and ore properties on One-
mile creek and returned to Spokane
Monday. He is much impressed with
the mineral conditions of contact and
deposit and expects the properties to
develop into mines. Mr. Craddock has
been in many parts of the world as
mining expert. His wide experience
leads him to believ^that there is a
Bright mining future for the whole
district. This is his first visit to
Priri^ton and is much impressed with
its beauty of location and surrounding
scenery.
A Mining Journal's Sketch.
Spokane capital is just now being
largely invested in Summit camp—
now known as Leadville; several
properties having already been bonded and purchased outright. This camp
is near the headwaters of the Tulameen river, which is the principal
branch of the Similkameen, the town
of Princeton being located at the
forks. The B. C. Copper company has
invested heavily at Copper mountain,
about 10 miles up Similkameen river,
e; tensive   development   being   under
way. Kennedy mountain, just oppo-;
site, is receiving attention from Vancouver capitalists; Whipsaw camp,
Still farther west, is being developed
by local capital. Three coal companies are-working in the Princeton basin,
most of the coal being shipped to Spokane. One of the richest gold mines
on the North American continent is
owned by the Hedley Gold mining Co.,
which has already disbursed nearly .a
million dollars in dividends, having
paid $60,000 this year. Since the first
of the year another deal has been con-
sumated in Hedley damp by which T.
W. Beam has taken over for himself
and associates a large group of mining
claims in the vicinity of Hedley Golo
Mining company's property. .Another
deal was recently consumated in
Princeton where about 1,000 acres of
eoal land was sold at $45.00 per acre:
The provincial government is building
a wagon road up Tulameen valley to
Leadville and Kelly Creek beca_.se c*
the favorable mining development at
those points. With, three chartered
banks Princeton is a thriving little
city and the center of a rapidly developing territory.—Northwest Mining News.
** Knight & Day are waiting for disap
pearance of snow on Whipsaw.    The,
tardy  spring  opening makes  it diffi
cult to rreiict when operations  will]
begin this  season in  this  silver-lea<
camp.
The Mount Baker Mining Company
has sold all of its property in the
Mount 'Baker district near Chilliwack
to George H. Thomas and S. Q. Clark,
of Seattle, who will take possession of
the property at once. The consideration was $75,000, to be paid in six
years, the first payment, $25,000, to be
made within four years from the date
of the agreement, January 26; the second one year later and the third and
last one year from the date of the second payment.  .
A dividend of $50,000 has been declared this month by the Standard
silver-lead mice at Silverton. making
the total distributed by the company
to its shareholders this year $200,000.
Since the company commenced to pay
dividends last April it has paid out
$625,000. The capital of the Standard
company is $2,000,000.
On Thursday, the 27th of March,
A. W. Davis, representing the Consolidated Mining and smelting company of
Canada, took an option from T. J.
Lloyd on the following properties:
Nighthawk, Eagle, Burnside Fraction,
Luff Fraction, and Dora Fraction. The j
properties are situated on Fourmile
below the Hewitt, and are in good location.—Slocan Record.
J. C. Edwards, mining man of Spokane, is in town and will make Leadville the scene of his operations this
summer. Silver-lead camps are attractive and Princeton district with
the upper Tulameen is likely to prove
productive of big dividends.
Pouwels & Bonniver are down from
Roche river and bring good reports of
mining prospects in that section.
Were the railway completed to the
coast week end excursions from the
big cities would be the proper thing.
Living in a damp, drizzling climate
they would be glad of the opportunity
to take advantage of our clear atmosphere and get dried out. Similkameen
.sunshine is beautiful sunshine and
builds up the debilitated.

THE WIDE WORLD.
'Evil and insensate folly,' 'wasteful,
■purposeless, and futile folly;' 'one of
jthe most stupid and unnatural chapiters in the history of European civilisation'—these are the stinging words
in which Mr. Churchill, naval minister in the Asquith government, describes the 'present acute rivalry in
armaments.'And he proposes to suspend the increase of the British navy
for a year if the rivals of Great Britain
will do likewise.
The treasury statement of the British government for the financial year
shows: "Revenue, $944,009,995; expenditures, $943,109,650. The revenue is
$8,064,995 over the estimate, while the
expenditures are $1,575,350 below the
estimates.
The British government has determined to make a grant to the Irish
Agricultural Organization Society for
the furtherance of agricultural cooperation on the lines of grants already
given to English societies. This will
bring the policy of the ministry into
line on this subject throughout the
United Kingdom..
China's total expenditure for the
current year will amount to $903,000,-
000.   To meet this expenditure, China
will have a revenue of about $725,733,-
208. The deficit of $177,266,792 will be
met by reducing the expenditure and
increasing the land customs and salt
taxes,
A machine has been invented that
thrashes standing grain in the field
without cutting. Four horses push
the machine over the field, and a small
gasoline engine drives the thrasher.
Only two men are required to operate
it; one drives the horses, and the other ties the sacks of thrashed grain and
looks after the engine. A mach'ne was
made and tried last summer in a
wheat field. It thrashed from twenty-five to thirty acres in a day of ten
hours.
Great efforts are being made in Berlin, Germany, to obtain permission for
women to serve .on the jury at the
court .for juvenile delinquents. A
meeting was convened recently by the
league of German women's societies
with this end in "view. The large hall
was crowded, people coffaing from
many parts of the country to attend
and speak, and thirty-eight different
■ women's   societies   were   represented.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Man is a sociable creature and it
takes two to make a home.
Law is good when it does not favor
one class or profession at the expense
of the masses, the people. Perfect
freedom of conscience is man's inalienable right. No law should force
him to take vaccine, serum, of squills
if for conscience sake he objects.
The egotist imagines that the world
would go to the bow-wows if he did
not have something to say about all
matters and everybody's business. He
cuts so little figure with his pompous
opinions that no one considers it
worth while to reply.
Cain was the first Knocker—his descendants are still doing business on
the gossip marts.
The armchair agriculturist, stovepipe prospector and smooth handed
laborer are all fine architects of hot
air castles.
If the real man is flesh and blood-,
corruptible dust, then earth ends all.
But he is spiritual, yearns for eternal
life ^nd that happiness which wealth
nor matter cannot give. %kW£li
Tearing another's character to pieces will no;t help yours no matter how
dirty the other man's may be.   Point-!
ing out the weeds in your neighbor's!
yard will not make those in your ownj
yard more beautiful.    The white cottage   and  brown   mansion   each  hide
trouble from the world.    People talk
and   know   not   whereof   they   speak. |
They retail slander to show how foulj
is the dish most palatable to them. Let
us walk straight along. Let us each
mind our own business  and we will
never   be   oht  of  employment.—Summerland Review.

Provisions for a force of at least ioo
men, structural material and heavy
machinery are required in promoting the exploration and development necessary to put the mine or
mines on a steady producing and
shippiug basis. That the work of
development to be carried out by
the B.C. Copper Co. and others
shall not be retarded it is necessary
that the railways projected to Ashnola and Copper mountain should
be completed by the time the mine
ow-ners are ready to ship ore. The
silver-lead ore of Whipsaw and the
copper gold ores of Friday creek
and Roche river must have railroad
transportation and the extension of
the rail head from Princeton to all
points mentioned, on one route, is
of the utmost importance to the
mining industry. At Leadville,
Fivemile and Bear creek there are
mineral deposits which will require
the early, quickening touch of rail
road transportation. It is up to
the railway companies to provide
the necessary connections and do
their full share toward developing
the rich natural resources of this
district. The bonus given the Ket
tie Valley railway company by the
people ought to provoke in their
minds some sense of gratitude and
good works and be the incentive
to expeditious construction. Tbfe
V.,V. & E. company did not ask
for a bonus, presumably preferring
to take its equivalent out of the
people in insufferable delays of construction and a rotten service as to
charges, &c. The railway companies must vigorously keep a-com-
ing. From this time the slogan l_»f
the people is unceasingly 'onward'
until tbe goal is reached,
half holiday is designed for the rest,
pleasure and health of toilers during the ordeal of hot weather. In
an age ot rapacious wealth seeking
and greed a break of some kind is
needed to stem the tide and lift man
out of the sordid rut into which he
has faljen by his own neglect and
stupidity. It is not many years ago
since ninety hours a week was the
scale in large concerns, but thanks
to the unions - a lot of oppression
and long grinding hours have been
eliminated. Shorter hours and intensive labor is the rule. And it is
conceded by governments and other
large employers of labor that the
best results are obtained by shorter
hours. The institution of the
weekly fialf holiday has never been
attempted in Princeton, probably
due to the problem of getting all
to consent to cessation of business
and labor at a given time. The
half holiday well repays in physical
and social improvement and its tendency would be in mitigation of
evils associated with the enforcement of laws regulating Sunday
trading and Sunday observance generally, including one day of rest in
seven for all.
The Toronto Globe has for long
years occupied the highest niche in
Canadian journalism both as to
quality of reading matter and mechanical production. It has recently issued a magnificent western
Canada edition, illustrated with
views of beautiful scenery and the
great development going on. One
ofthe views shows placer mining oil
a street in Princeton, presenting a
true scene and showing the place
where gold-platinum placers were
tested by a company with a drill
and who also hold several miles of
river and bar lease on the Tulameen. The Globe is the only metropolitan newspaper in Canada of
sufficient mental broad guage and
national reach to issue these occasional superb special editions. It is
doing a work that shows a fine patriotic spirit independent of its party
leanings. It is a national newspaper and deserves the highest
praise for its labor of love and generous help in publicity.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is the recognized right and
proper recreative principle to have
a half holiday during the summer
weeks for all who labor for a living.
National holidays are observed for
sentim.ntal reasons but the weekly
European affairs seem to be hopeless insofar as hastening universal
peace and disarmament are concerned. The extent to which the
burden imposed by the war craze
carries argument is observed in the
newspapers and legislative debates.
In Germany the socialists and lab-
orites are bitterly opposed to the
recent war levies, their attitude being active political resistance and
possibly open rebellion. In England most discreditable scenes have
occurred in the ' mother of parliaments,' high class members using
such low terms as 'cad,' 'pothouse
crowd,' 'sti ky fingers,' etc.

The manufacture of cement will begin in a few

with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, \vHI result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two
railways will serve transportation.

C. Willarson, d. G. McCurdy,
Noble Grand Secretary,_
Editor Star.—Sir: Prompted by a
recent handsome donation to our
church, I wish you would allow me
(through your columns) to suggest to
the English church members of
Princeton, and others in any way interested, that they turn their attention
to the pushing forward the interests
of the church.   Here are a few needs:
1. A parsonage house.
2. Office fixtures for the clergyman
and church' wardens.
3. More restful and modern equipment of the Interior of the church,
decorations, etc.
4 Better heating apparatus for next
winter.
5. Enclosure (by means of decorative fence).
As it stands even now, the church is
a monument to the faithful and patient work of those who have brought
it up to its present condition. By the
aid of our recent contribution from
friends in England the last $150 has
been paid. The whole concern is absolutely free from encumbrance. But
this spells "go ahead." Hotels, private houses, (even prisons) in B. C.
are uptodate, and comfortable institutions. It must be our business to
see .hat the church is No. 1, a credit
to the whole place. And don't let us
forget the higher work, the cultivation of Christ's spirit.
Yours truly,
W.  HERBERT MAYORS,
Acting Vicar
Princeton, B. C, April 17th, 1913.
Note—Three ways of helping:
• 1. Attend services, and join heartily.
2. Subscribe 25 cents, or more, a

50 per cent, with bonds, $169,400.00:
unissued stock remaining in treasury,
$140,600.00.
Total amount of stock actually issued to date including $190,000.00 given for land $282,900.00. No shares, are
beiii" offered for sale except as a bonus with bond issue. All cash capital
is furnished entirely- from the sale of

Bond Issue.—Authorized (first mortgage), $400,000.00; ($100 atfd $500 denomination) : total amount offered,
$338,800.00: balance unsold to be sold
later to enlarge plant, $61,200.00.
There has been subscribed to date
$338,800.00 from which it is estimated
that $23,800.00 may- be considered
doubtful leaving $315,000.00 fully subscribed and either paid or considered
perfectly good but $70,000.00 of which
is still unpaid. No bonds are issued

The estimate of what would be required to erect the buildings, put in
the machinery of the first unit and
irov'ide $50,000.00 of working capital
was $338,800.00. Although the spur
and bridge over the river cost $20,000.-
00 more than the estimate, yet it is
now seen that the entire estimate I for
completion of.the first unit was about
$15,000.00 too high. The adjoining
coal company entered into agreement
to bear half the cost of the railway
spur and bridge, but so far have been
unable to come through and as a result the cement company has been required to advance their share and that
will come back later, but it was responsible for some of the delay that
has already been occasioned. That
and the slowness of some -of the
bond subscribers in paying up on their
bonds, has compelled the management
to borrow from the banks. Bond interest and bank Interest will have to
be paid temporarily out of the proceeds from the bonds until same can
be charged off from the profits when
operating. The directors personally
guaranteed the bank advances and
this aided very materially.

Labor, materials and machinery delivered has been fully taken care of
to date. To wipe out these, provide
for what remaining expenditure will
be necessary to complete and give sufficient working capital to carry
through during the period that the
output is stored before being put on
the market, a few more bonds will be
sold and from present indications it
will only be a few more days until
all are more than taken up, in which
case subscribers will only be allotted
a proportionate amount.
$50,000.00 working capital is considered more than ample for operation
of the first unit. Part of this amount
could be used to pay for additional
machinery to double ■ the capacity,
when plant is operating a few months'.
The cost of additional machinery to
increase output to double capacity will
be about $40,000.00. Additional bonds
can.be sold or part of/the profits used
to do this.
The buildings are large enough to
accommodate three units, each of
700 barrels capacity.

The daily capacity of the Todd Inlet
plant is about 1,500 barrels and they
are not able to supply one quarter of
the demand in this Province. This
company in order to supply its own
trade has purchased 500,000 barrels
from United States plants, in addition
to its own output.
There are several other large importers of cement, like Balfour, Guthrie & Co., R. V. Winch & Co., Armstrong and Morrison. These firms in
one week during August alone, imported 60,000 sacks of cement.
Central Snipping Point.
The works at East Princeton being
so advantageously located can supply
many places in Alberta and the State
of Washington. The city of Calgary
recently purchased 150,000 barrels,
and the city of Edmonton 80,000 barrels, of cement from the Inland Portland Cement Co., located at Metaline
Falls, Wash. This order could have
been filled from East Princeton at a
handsome profit if they had been operating. The duty on imported cement
is 55 1-2 cents per barrel, including
sacks. Duty levied by the United
States is only 26 cents per barrel on
cement shipped into the States from
Canada. Customs reports for 1912
show that in four months last year,
398,000 barrels of cement were imported into B. C. last year.
Wholesale prices in Vancouver, are
are $2.50 to $2.65 per barrel in car
lots. Prices at interior points are
double these and they will be our best
and nearest markets for cement. Present freight rates to Vancouver will al-
_low a profit of 65 cents to 75 cents per
barrel and when both lines of railroad
are completed this coming year, which
will place the plant within one hundred and fifty miles of this city, the
profit per barrel will be still better.
At all interior points located within
150 miles of the plant the market can
be held against all coast concerns
with a reduction to the home consumer and give a handsome margin of
profit. They can also ship to the
coast with the down grade haul for
(he greater part of the way and compete in the coast market owing to the
advantage they hold in the cheap production of cement because of having
all the materials close at hand in addition to the coal for calcining and
power purposes.
Market Assured.
The interior market will consume
the entire output of the first unit and
it will only be a short time until they
will be compelled to increase the capacity to meet the increasing demand
in the interior. An additional Rotary
Kiln and some more grinding machinery than is contained in the first unit
will be all that will be necessary to
-dd to the plant equipment to double
the capacity and this can be done at
relatively small cost as compared with
the first outlay.
Prospects are Very Inviting-
Upon three important things the
company base the hope of attaining
irom the very first turning of the
wheels a success unequaled by any
like industry. First of these is the
exceptionally superior character of
the product and this is based upon repeated experiments and tests showing
the exceptional superiority of the materials which will enter into the composition of the manufactured article.
Second is the exceptional advantage
in having all the materials assembled
in immediate proximity to the works
j and not a cent of freight on raw materials being required. The third is
the very great advantage over all
competitors for the home market.
These three with a low capitalization
_nd an uptodate plant are features
that are very pleasant for investors in
the enterprise to contemplate.
