BIG BODY BORNITE

Lead—Vast Tonnage
in Sight.
Wagon Road Petitioned for. but Railroad Must Build There and ,-,
Roche River.
E. P. Wheeler, the well known mining
man and managing-director of the Columbia Copper Mining Co., was tn town
recently on his way to Con\pBully, Wash,
He had been at Friday Creek superintending the work of driving a tunnel,
which, for the 300 feet in course of
completion will be all in ore. This work
will open up a million tons of ore. At
present there are 10,000 tons of ore on
the dump waiting for transportation.
The ore is a high grade bornite running high in copper and containing $8 in
gold and* silver. The ore would stand
hauling to Princeton by wagon if there
were a road. The same may be said of
the ore farther away, at Roche river.
' Mr. Wheeler has had much labor and
almost insuperable obstacles to overcome |
in putting this property in shipping condition* The prospecting stage is now a
thing of the past with him. What he
most needs is a road to haul machinery
upon, having need now for a sawmill and
machine drills. A largely signed petition
for a wagon road from Ashnola to Friday
Creek and Roche River was circulated
by Mr. Wheeler to be presented to Mr.
Shatford, who will do all in his power to
secure an appropriation for this necessary work.
There can be but little doubt that the
Great Northern will tap the mining camps
jof Friday Creek and Roche River when
it reaches Ashnola, to which latter point
it must go for the ore of Copper and
Kennedy mountains, and coal. A report
is current that an agent of the Great
Northern has bonded Pouwels & Bonni-
ver's property at Roche River.
Mr. Wheeler will keep men employed
most of the winter and will return in the
early spring to further develop this fine
property. He is certainly deserving for
his perseverance and pluck in opening
up a mine so far out on the frontier.
E. G. Marshton of Spokane were in town
last week concluding the big coal, ore
and land deal with the United Empire.
Reg. C. Brown, late secretary to Lord
Strathcona, but now of the Canadian
Development Co , Vancouver, was in
town last week in connection with the
location of over 18,000 acres of coal land
in this vicinity. His company will operate here.
E. Jacobs, ths well known mining man
and editor wishes to receive reports of
progress made during 1909 of all the dis
trict mining properties. His reviews of
mining are given wide publicity Letters should be addressed to him at Nelson,
B.C., not later than the 30th inst.

THE MAN WHO DOESiTHINGS.K[
MINES AND MINING.
Fred. C. Laird of Spokane, representing Laidlaw & Gaylor, coal mine owners
and dealers was in town last week. Mr.
Laird operated mines in Cariboo some
years ago.
Messrs. Pearson and Green, Great
Northern coal experts, were in town last
week looking over coal properties and
went up to the North Fork of Granite
Creek to examine the coking coal.

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Dr. Dawson, the eminent geologist, said
of Princeton and district that,'If it did
not prove to be the greatest mineral section in the world, then geology had gone
astray.'   Come and see*!
Owing to stress of space and lack of
help a full report of the political meeting
and a lot of interesting local matter are
crowded out of this issue. However, if
possible, a double-header will be issued
of this number, 48, affording further
news of the elections. Thirty coal notices will also appear in the second section of 48. 'These be strenuous times,
suah,' as Uncle Eben would say.

WHIPSAW WHISPERS
Undoubtedly Mine in Embryo
Begun — Silver-Lead
Ore Luring.
Wagon Road Must be Built to this
Promising Field—Camp Life
on Whipsaw.
Billy Knight was in town from the
Whipsaw some days ago and reports progress on the Twenty Four Hour mineral
claim. His partner, Charlie Day, had
the misfortune to cut his foot but it was
healing nicely. Knight & Day have a
big undertaking on hand, which consists
in/tra^hing a tunnel to tap the lea I of
tneir claim at depth. It is largely problematical how far they will have to drive
bnt 'hit it' they must, if it takes all winter and part of next summer.
They will be cut off from the world for
some months to come owing to the depth
of snow at that altitude. However, with
their musical instruments, literature,
grub, including several carcases of the
tenderest mowitch, and the lure of the
lead at the tunnel head,the time will pass
more pleasantly than to be in the swim
of society in Princeton.
A visit from Mr. Hines, M.E., of Victoria, with Claude Snowden as guide,
was most welcome and timely on the
Whipsaw. Some strolling deer struck
camp just as the visitors arrived, and
every man shot one. Then Mr. Hines-
looked over the ground, saw the fine
showing of the M & S group, and examined the Twenty-Four Hour. He was
much pleased with everything he saw
and expressed himself in the terse and
significant sentence: 'Undoubtedly you
have got the making of a mine here.'
The tunnel is being driven with the
view to permanency and stability and
will serve for all purposes during the
operation of the mine. The location of
Whipsaw Camp is ideal; timber and
water in abundance being found all
along the creek banks.
A petition for a road from Ashnola to
Camp Wbipsaw has been circulated by
S. Spencer and W. Knight and forwarded
to Mr. Shatford, who, it is hoped, with
his usual influence will secure an appropriation to build this road in the early
spring.
ence or pressure may be brought to bear
upon you. Vote fof Shatford and progress.
Star has sincerest respect for Mr. Elmhirst, but in allowing himself to be projected into political limelight he was
ill-advised. Once into that fierce light
he is fair game for political jokers and
must not wince. On the platform he
lacks voice but is as cool as a cucumber,
of which he has grown bushels.
Backward swings the pendulum of
progress for four years if Elmhirst be
elected—but he won't be.
Plentiful crop of cranks this election—
one says there are too m»ny roads ;. another says there is too much progress, he
can't keep up ; a third wants taxes abolished and free soup kitchens set up; a
fourth is 'agin the government anyway.
They will all vote the Liberal ticket, no-
other party wants them.
Mr. Shatford holds meeting tonight..
Rally around him and encourage him in
the good work he has begun.
Address.
POLITICAL POT POURRI.
It is sound doctrine to hold what you
have. We have Shatford, tried and
proven faithful. It is never sound policy
to exchange a good employee for one
unknown and untried.
The ballot is strictly secret. Remember that and do the right thing by your
town and district no matter what influ-
To the Electors  of the Similkameen District :
For the thiad time I have the honor of
being selected by the Conservative party
to represent the Similkameen riding. I
feel deeply grateful for this evidence of
appreciation of my past services and of
the confidence placed in me to carry on
the good work of building up this portion of the country. i&
Though the Similkameen ma)* be considered, and justly so, one of tne favored
districts of our highly favored province,
replete in latent resources, the early
stages of the development of these resources must necessarily be slow and
occasionally disappointing. It is therefore to me a source of gratification to
look back Over the past six years and
note the great progress made in our riding'and to feel that I have had the privilege of contributing to its prosperity.
The inauguration of a broad railway
policy by the McBride government will
command the attention of the electorate,
overshadowing all other questions I am
convinced that such a policy will make
for the rapid growth of the Province,
causing an influx of capital and population the results of which. will be far
reaching. In seeking your support I feel
that I may confidently appeal to my
record of past services to vouch for my
earnest desise to safeguard the interests,
of my constituency in the future.
I should much like to have met eeery
elector personally before election day,,
bnt the size of the riding and the shortness of time will not permit; however, I
will endeavor to meet as many as possible, In conclusion I would respectfully
solicit your vote and influence, pledging
myself to do my utmost for the welfare
of the Similkameen riding.

VOTERS I^rWB GREAT AND
HONORABLE DUTIES.
Now every man  in the Similkameen who is a voter becomes a sovereign  invested  with   the right to
rule and govern  as  his  conscience
prompts, him.     He   obtained  this
right with the  birth of liberty, aud
the dawn  of civilization.    In some
landSjit was-acquired with the price
■of blood,'our  own forefathers having paid this penalty in their struggles against tyrrany and oppression.
To be a  voter  carries  with  it the
highest honor that can be conferred
ou .citizens  generally.    It  is only
when   voters  are  animated by the
promptings of conscience, which is
reason  in  its  highest form, that a
progressive   government    may   be
founded and the will  of the people
given expression in wise and capable legislation.    From the ballot to
the government there is continuous
and  tangible  connection.     If   the
ballot  of the elector  be  cast with
pure    and   honorable   intention be
has fulfilled-bis duty to his country
and to aiinself.    His mind will net
be haunted with visions of remorse
and   wasted opportunity.    He can
look with unshadowed mental vision into Ihe'faee of the whole world
and say 'I have  honestly  done my
duty.'
• •■These reflections are prompted at
this  time  to assist, it may be, any
wavering  or   undecided  voters   to
j.^sjee,   first,   what  is their duty and
aSs^condJy, to do it.    To vote intell—-
gently one must be informed on the
character   and ability of the cgndi;
dates, the policies their   parties advocate and   the   factors  which and
- who were  responsible  for their introduction into-the political contest.
'Good character and ability are vital
considerations,  for,  without   these
no  candidate  can   be  properly entrusted with the publifc affairs of the
constituency—without     them    the
representative, drifts into the claws
of   that   unsavory   gent'.err.an,   the
lobbyist',   he  is    at    the   mercy   of
designing leaders  in the legislature
• and out  of it the prey of vultures
who hover  around  the  flesh pots.
Policies,  or measures, where tecl>-
nical questions or fine points of law
are involved, require analysis at the
hands  of an   expert  aud  reliance
must  be.  placed on    ministers   to
' explain   those knotty   points fairly
and honestly.     But   the  ordinary
voter  who  has  little  time to read
-and less  for  study   may   grasp the
important   features  of a  policy by
asking himself first : Is it a progressive measure ? Is it for the
benefit of the whole country and is
it practicable, comparing it with
other and Similar enterprises?
These questions may be digested
and answered as well by the man
of usual- common sense as well as
the statesman. The principle of
any political policy is thus put in a
nutshell.
In the present campaign' in the
.Similkameen two candidates, the
one representative for the past six
years with an honorable record ;
and the other inexperienced, without any public political record, of
any sort. The one stands for a
railway policy that has the same
force and effect in the Conservative
province of Manitoba and the Liberal provinces of Saskatchewan and
Alberta, is practicable aud progressive and in the interests of the
whole country, the Similkameen in
particular ; the Opposition candidate has no railway policy other
than one hatched in a Vancouver
newspaper office and which is not
seriously considered by any man of
good judgment or men of creditable
political note.
Electors wiUj/be called upon tomorrow to express their wishes. If
they are true to their country and
'tbeTrjselves they will vote for progress and railways as endorsed by
Mr. Shatford ; if they want stagnation, depression and discontent
they will vote for the'one who will
be powerless to help them in ary
case—Mr. Elmhirst Let the bat-
tie cry go forth today in mighiy
vohii:e — 'Shatford, Similkameen,
Progress, Victory.'

Way by Political Parties.
Star is asked by the undersigned to
make the following correction, which it
gladly and willingly does :
" Your editorial in the issue of the 17th
with reference to the nomination of Mr.
Elmhirst is incorrect when you say he
was taken advantage of by two or three
designing and pushful obstructionists.
You say: 'The so-called Liberal convention at Keremeos was merely the rendezvous of an insignificant number of quasi
Liberals from Fairview, Keremeos and
Hediey. The remaining and most im-1
portant sections of the constituency were
not consulted.'
" I may say this  is incorrect  as there
were  delegates  from Bridesville, Sidley
Fairview,    Hedley,    Keremeos,   Nicke
Plate,  White Lake,   Olalla  and Maroon
Valley    and    proxies   irotu   Beaverdell,

formaliouon one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
