COPPER MOUNTAIN
Voigt's Camp Deal is Reported
to be in Final Stages
of Completion.
Description of Camp  and Conditions
by Well Known Expert
yj        Mining Map.
^ <_> £Cl*-~*    C^q-**J>
For some time negotiations have been
in progress for the acquirement by jjew
York and Boston men of the large muN
ing property, situated on Copper Mountain in the vicinity of Princeton, Similkameen together with other interests owned
by Emjil F. Voigt and ■ associates. The
transaction has not yet»been completed
but it may be shortly, so the following
information is published with a view to
conveying an adequate idea of tbe pros
pective value of the.property and-the
considerable importance of the peojected
enterprize" which may be expected to lead
to the effective development of the
property and the utilization of the large
mineral resburces it is believed to posses.
Much of the information has been ab
stracted from a comprehensive!' report on
the prope__y.made by C. W. W_6e___k
of New York City, whose work in this
connection extended over a period of
three months, from November 1909, to
January i^tp-, yjpjusive.
Location.—Voight's camp is situated
in Similkameen mining division of Ycle
district, British Columbia.- On an air
line it is about 120 miles east of Vancouver, 30 miles north of the Interna?
tional Boundary line, about 100 miles
west of the Boundary district (where aie
situated the mines and smelteries of the
Granby -and British Columbia Copper
companies), and 300 miles north by west
of Spokane, Washington.

POLICE INVESTIGATE
The investigation ordered by the IMeut.
Governor and conducted by W. H B.
Webster, S.M., of Nelson, was held today
to inquire into the charges and complaints
made against Nigel Ewar^ ^hj)e'r_tyt_-
Me here,. Some 8 or 9 witnesses were ex
amined, not a scintilla of evidence being
adduced to bear out the 'numerouscharges and complaints' as alleged by Superintendent Hussey. All the witnesses testi
fied in terms of praise of Mr. Ewart at
the Princeton  hotel fire,  and also of his
general   cohtiucJ since  his appointment
here. One witness said he knew that the
ex constable was/under the influence of
liquor 'by his face. Rut all ihe~3___FS
swore as to his perfect competence for
duty at and after Uiefire. To dismiss a
constable and blot his character on evidence   so  flimsy   is nothing short of a
crime and on a par with the plot against
Dreyfus. Insofar as the evidence produced against Ewart had weight it was
farcical, puerile, silly.     Rev.  Kinney as
nn.   nf tfrp nntnplginantg, (w__T_.li: .t-heiS
were was kept secret) will be made the
scapegoat of what looks like a conspiracy.
Mr. Ewart has a case for damages for
wrongful dismissal, defamation and deprivation of livelihood. The whole matter shows incompetency and a fossilized
condition in the department of provincial poHce, and public money wasted.
>#_)ITOR WHO DOES, THINGS.-

the Greenwood Ledge was in town last

'  DUST EXPLOSIONS IN COAL
MINES.
Franklin Bache, President ■___$} the
Bache Denman Coal Company, in a recent paper on dust explosions in coal
mines, contended that the best precaution is to remove the dust from all parts
of haulage ways that are near enough to
working places to be affected by blown-
out shots. He considered it unnecessary
to remove'the dnst from rooms, as the
dust made iu mining and loading coal is
comparatively safe. The<_tangerous material is the impalpable dust, made by the
continual grinding of passing men, mules
and cars on thgj__atways. He contended
that if the dust is got out of the haul-
wavs in possible juxtaposition to blown-
out shots, 90 per cent. STrhrst explosions
would be done away with; that if no shots
were allowee_ip be fired except when all
ejnployees but the s__)Mra__3i_-iiitr/-"of
t_____ii___the loss of life in explosions
would be greatly reduced; and if the firing of shots in coal not undercut were
prohibited there would be almost no dust
explosions at all. He adds:—"Sweeping
the sides, roof and floor of an entry for a
few hundred feet, and loading the dust
out every week or two is not an appalling
task." He further suggests the adoption
of dust proof pit cars, and considers that
some time "we may get the miner to see
that it is to his interest, as well as ours,
to put a premium on mining more lump
and less slack coal."

AN INDUSTRIAL CITY.
Tbe stimulating influence which
East  Princeton,  with  its large cement  works,    bricktnaking   plant,
smelter  and  coal mine, will  have
upon the whole district of Princeton
is sure to   mark a  new era in progress when  these  proposed industries are all in operation.    The railway spur, bridge and cement works
are  now  under contract, the walls
of the latter  being well advanced.
When all the industries which usually accrue to a large cement works
and coal mining  are in   operation
there will be a   population  of   at
least 2000 and this influx of people
cannot fail to  be of immense benefit all around.    The two large companies operating in  East Princeton
have on their  directorate men who
are known to the commercial world
as safe and reliable,  besides having
that  capacity  for enterprise which
knows no defeat nor procrastination.
Prosperity and success have marked
their  careers  because  they believe
that a dollar in legitimate   action is
worth   more  than' a  hundred dormant ones which   do not contribute
to   the   progress   of   the  country.
From tbis time forward East Princeton will be a busy town, increasing
and expending   until  it  is   a chief
city  of the  interior.     By   all progressive persons   the new town and
later city will be  a  welcome addition on the map of the Similkameen
valley.    The citizens of old Princeton  will   watch   with  a profitable
pride the development of the young
giant soon to form a member of the
incorporated    family    which   will
make one  united and  harmonious
city of Princeton.    What will build
up East   Princeton  will in no wise
detract from the importance of tire
old town as a strategical   point and
mining center.    So closely allied in
position   and interests are the two
towns that  what benefits one must
benefit the  other   and so with that
spirit   of live and let   live, of fair
play, healthy boost or optimism and
honorable  methods  one great mining and   industrial  city will arise.
Welcome, East Princeton!
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The extremely hot weather of
.the past week has bad the effect of
making everything dry as tinder,
xeauiring only *h_ slightest spark
to 'ignite and spread into devastating
flame. Every care should be taken
l,y travellers _i«d -campers to prevent fires  from  starting.    The law-
is very plain and justly severe with
offenders under the Bush Fires Act.
It is a serious reflection upon the
presumed loyalty of those engaged
in business to be seuding away from
town for articles or jobs which may
be obtained at home. Patronize
home industry and help to swell the
daily receipts.
It would be the height of folly for
Princetonians to allow the splendid
opportunities   which are  ours  by
right of priority and  position to be
dissipated through sheer neglect or
indifference.     If,   as  citizens  and
property  owners,  we  do  not   follow our investments with a living,
active  interest,   we cannot hope to
maintain that  supremacy to which
we   are  fairly  entitled   by  choice
location.     With  our well known
coal  and  metal  resources  and the
great inducements of cheap fuel and
water power for manufacturing purposes there should  be no  difficulty
in persuading  capital to  establish
manufacturing  industries here.    It
is getting into  touch with the men
and tbe   money,   inducing them to
cooperate in the building of smelter
or any other works, that is  the supreme duty   of citizens.    It is possible  tor  the center of 'gravity' to
shift from an inert  to  an energetic
townspeople,  from  a town without
manufacturing    industries    to  one
having   them.    In   any   case trade
follows the payroll and where there
is one a trade  center is the natural
result.    Star   has  always tried  to
impress upon citizens the necessity
for  making   Princeton the permanent trade  center of this section.
■All persons of ordinary perspicacity
in business will agree that the suggestion can   only  become  effective
in proportion as  the  citizens make
it so.    As every  individual is the
author,   in a  large  degree,  ot his
own success, so  the  community or
town  has the  shaping   of its own
destiny.     Publicity  is  the  means
used to attract notice in  these days
of the free use of printer's ink and
in order to  supplement the important  and   gratuitous   work of the1
newspaper a large  amount of other
advertising matter, such  as folders,
maps and  pamphlets,   is required
' The  possibilities  of Princeton   are
so varied and vast that there is not
much danger of overestimating, all
that is wanted is the payroll to preserve tbe nucleus  and the boost resultant from  judicious advertising.
Citizens  have a magnificent heritage.    Tbe  town  and district teem
with    natural   wealth   and   scenic
attractions.    It  is possible that we,
as a community, may  have become
stagnant,  blind and  indifferent as
the  result  of years of enforced inactivity, but now that the  railroad
is here and another coming there is
no sound   reason   why   the  town
should not take a big  step forward
and become a mine  producing and
manufacturing center..
