Coal production will maintain big payroll here.
Avoid extremes: On the pathway of life choose the middle course
Mining is the leading industry of the Similkameen and ® capable of vast development, not a tenth of it feeing, as yet, prospected—It
is the Prospector's Paradise, easy of access and virtually unlimited in area—Manufacturing facilities are excellent—^Healthy climate.

RAGING FOREST FIRES
Danger Now Passed, Thanks
to Providential Showers
of Rain.
Burning Sun with High Winds Favor
Running Fires—Fire Warden
Does Duty.
Princeton was the centre of much
anxiety for a few days last week caused
by the running fires which girdled it at
varying distances. The town was enveloped with smoke and the high winds
hurled clouds of dust in the air, the combined effect of the disturbed elements
remindiug one of the last days of Pompeii. The night sky was lurid with reflected flame; dawn gave no hope of
relief in the burning sun, for with advancing day the wind arose and with it
g:eat banks of smoke wafted wherever
the changing wind listed. Homes, property and human life were at stake. The
provincial fire warden; W. T. Atherton,
and his assistants, fairly press-ganged
men into service to fight the encroaching flames, and while much good work-
was done it was apparent that no human
power could put the fires out. It was
Providential that rain came 'in the nick
of time,' and immediate danger was
passed.
The fires at Copper Mountain, Kennedy Mountain, Granite Greek, China
Creek and opposite Five-Mile on the
Similkameen river were evidently the
result of carelessnes, ignorance of the
law or design. The fire at China Creek
was in a fair way to jump the Tulameen
River and swoop down on helpless, waterless Princeton—the wells being nearly
dry and everything burnable so dry that
a mere spark, fanned with wind, would
cause a disaster Citizens are much disquieted at the origin of the China Creek
fire, suspicion pointing to intent. The
provincial fire warden summoned the
owner of a ranch on the Creek, C. Brom-
field, before Magistrate Waterman last
Friday, the evidence not being considered sufficient, however, the case was
dismissed. The rumor that Mr. Atherton would appeal the case is authoritatively contradicted.
The great damage done to timber and
the threatened destruction of gathered
crops, along with other property, if not
of life, makes it imperative that some
more effective method for the detection
of lawbreakers and -prevention- of the
spread of incipient fires must be devised.
No blame can be attached to Warden
Atherton for the spread of these fires'.
He personally inspected them or sent his
assistants to take charge of fighting operations, employing 'available help to
stem the oncoming flames.   In most in
stances fires gain too much headway be
fore discovery. To meet this contingency
a systematic patrol of the roads and
trails and wherever campers frequent
will, no doubt, mitigate much mischief
and bring to the bar of justice many
offenders. No person should be allowed
to set brush or clearing fires agoing at
any time of the year without a permit.
Some years are very dry, and favorable
for running fires during the whole twelve
months. This year was very dry up to
the middle of September, two weeks
after the usual time for the close season
to extend Besides the patrol system
rewards for the arrest and conviction of
offenders  should   be 'given.    With these
Continued on 3rd page.
BUSINESS EXPANSION AND
LARGER BUILDING.
By reference to the advertisement of
F. P. Cook, calling for tenders, it will be
observed that a large building is to be
erected. The structure is to accommodate
the progressive firm of Huston Bros.,
liverymen, whose business has outgrown
their present premises. With a frontage
of some forty teet on Bridge street, extending eighty-five feet rearwards, two
storeys, the building will afford every
convenience for horses and vehicles, including, space for auto garage. Office,
carriage room, harness apartment and
lavatory will be located on front lower
floor, the upper floor being used for storage. The building occupies a commanding position near the Tulameen bridge
and will be an important addition to the
town.
FAR FAMED ENTERTAINERS
COMING.
Miss Pauline Johnson, the Indian poetess, and Walter McRaye, the clever exponent of the works of Dr. Drummond,
will give one of their amusing and instructive entertainments in the I.O.O.F.
hall Weduesday evening, Sept. 29th.
All those who have heard these talented
entertainers speak of them in the highest praise. Miss Johnson, assisted by Mr.
McRaye, appeared at Steinway Hall,
London, Eng., in her buckskin costume,
before a large and distinguished audience, including Lord and Lady Strathcona, Sir Charles and Lady Rivers-Wilson, and many other notables, and were
endorsed by the entire London press.
Be sure and hear McRaye in his comic
and serious interpretations of the French
Canadian habitant. Reserve Sept. 29th
and hear some pleasant things that will
not fade from your memory.
Threshing at Gibson brothers farms on
Five-Mile has been finished and a splendid yield has been reported.
•oSPv Martin's soninlaw' arrived from
Moosejaw, last week and will become a
resident.
MINES AND MINING
Vermilion Forks Co. Arrange
to Open and Operate
Coal Mine.
Hedley Gold Mines Co. Promotes Old
Official—Reported Sale of
Coal Mines.
The following from the Nelson Daily
News will be of interest to readers of
the Star: 'That all arrangements have
been completed for the opening up and
operation of the coal properties owned
bv the Vermilion Forks Mining & Development Co. at Princeton and that the
Co. is only ^waiting the completion of
the V,V & E. to that point, was the
statement made by A. Hickling of London, Eng., managing director of the Co.
Mr. Hickling arrived last night from the
old country and is now on his annual
tour of B.C., having interests not only in
the Similkameen but also in Vancouver,
Rossi and and Nelson. He is an old
timer in Kootenay, having been at one
time connected with the Hall Mines
smelter.'
The Hedley Gold Mines Co. has abol
ished the office of managing-director, the
representative of the company in Hedley
being a general superintendent, to which
position G. P. Jones, mine superintendent, has been nromoted The new general superintendent has been eight years
at the mine and has proved to be a poplar and proficient official. The retiring
manager, Mr. Ross, it is said, will occupy
a similar position for the Daly people in
Mexico. No other' change in the staff
is reported.
A well founded report originating in
Vancouver was circulated recently, having reference to the sale of the North
Fork coal mimes, near Granite Creek.
The price is said to be $500,000.
Sam Spencer returned from Whipsaw
recently where he has struck good ore and
in consequence is encouraged more.
C. Hanniug and N. Johnson are down
from Bear Creek, where they have been
developing their mining properties and
are pleased with the ore showing.
MADE GOOD IN FEW YEARS,
CAN NOW RETIRE.
Dougald Gillespie, of Okanagan Falls,
was in town Sunday and reports good
times and good prospects at the Falls.
Development is in evidence on all sides,
the latest being the new townsite of Kal-
eden, about two miles from the Falls.
Between thirty and forty thousand dollars' worth of property has been sold at
Kaleden already, unmistakable evidence
of the energy of the owner J. Ritehie,-
although the town has yet to celebrate its
first anniversary. The land on which.
Kaleden stands was located and relocated
by various parties and as often abandoned
being considered worthless and as fit for
only a playground for rattlesnakes or
other 'varmints.' Kaleden now blossoms !
as the rose and illustrates the transforming power of brains, money and water
when scientifically applied.
Mr. Gillespie has sold his ranch for the
neat sum of $18,000 to Mr. Ritchie, who
will subdivide  it into fruit acreage and •
sell  to some good   Manitobans with a 1
bunch of wheat  money.   This year Mr..
Gillespie grew over a ton of peaches, although an off year.   This fact is a sure'
enough  refutation of an  alarmist rumor
that the  peach crop is a total failure in:
th.e   Similkameen district   this   season.:
The large freighting and general delivery,
business which  Mr.  Gillespie has built
up from a small  beginning with headquarters at Keremeos',  is being discontinued   on account  of the  V.,V. & E.
railway now carrying freight.   His stock
of fifty valuable horses may be taken to
the Northwest,  at present a portion of
his big outfit  will be used on a contract
at Kaleden.
Mr. and Mrs. Gillespie are among tbe
pioneer settlers at Okanagan Falls, some
dozen years ago, and have by ljonest industry acquired a large competence in a
short time. They also enjoy the esteem
and respect of a large circle of friends
who will wish them and their family all
happiness wherever their lot may be cast.
Princeton has . always appealed to Mr.
Gillespie as an inviting place to live in
and it may. be he will reside here and
enjoy the fruits of a retired life.
ITEMS SWEPT UP FOR THE
SOCIAL COLUMN.
J. H. Kennedy, C.E., was in town yes-,
terday arranging for the despatch of a
party to locate the eight-mile tunnel on
.the new route of the V.,V. & E.
Committeemen Avery, jr., Russell, L.
Huston, Martin and Wilson have issued
invitations for a ball to be held under the
auspices of the O ange Lodge on Friday
evening, Oct. ist in the I.O.O.F. hall.
A pleasant time is promised.
E. P. Galliac, mining man, of Spokane, is on a business visit to this section.
He may locate here permanently.
Two important mining deals are on
the particulars of which will later appear.
The Cooks are strictly 'in it'—Discovered the north pole, cirenmnavigated the
globe and pioneered Princeton.
Children's Day service will be held
next Sunday morning at n, in the court
house. All children, parents and the
public generally are invited. Special
offerings for the promotion of Sabbath
School work throughout Canada. Rev.
Mr. Conn will deliver address appropriate for the occasion.

WHERE TO LOCATE THE
NAVY YARD.
Now that it is decided to build a
Canadian navy and that tbe ships
composing it shall be homemade, as
first suggested in these columns, it
is a matter of gravest importance
to   select   the   best   locations   for
dock and  shipbuilding  yards, one
each on the Atlantic, the others on
the Pacific.   The locations will, no
doubt,  be determined by  experts
who will be glad to have  any light
thrown on the  subject that may be
useful in their decisions.   First consideration  is  safety from attack of
any possible enemy, and secondly
accessibility to supplies of all kinds.
Looking at the question ot location
on the Pacific  from these two view
points Star sees no place with such
peculiar  advantages   as  that presented   by   the   upper reaches of
Burrard Inlet.    Far removed from
any possible attack of hostile fleets
with long range guns  its absolute
safety  would  be  effected by mines
and  batteries  placed  in and along
the narrow  inlet  for  a distance of
about  fourteen   miles.      Then, its
location on the  mainland would be
assurance of its not being subjected
to  complete isolation, as would be
the case if it were located on Vancouver    Island.      With   the   well
known  mineral   resources   of  the
Similkameen at hand for construction of, not only ships, but also the
armor  plate  and equipment, there
would be rapid progress given every
existing  industry   and    new  ones
created.    In coal Princeton has the
'idintical' thing, of superior heating   qualities   and almost smokeless.
The question of location  for a
MAIN TRUNK HIGHWAY
ACROSS B.C.
The proposal of the  provincial
'minister of public works to build a
grand trunk wagon road to connect
the Pacific coast with the interior
and on to Alberta is one that will
commend itself to  the thoughtful
consideration   of  every   taxpayer.
Of the many benefits to be derived
from such a trunk road not the least
would be the inducement to visitors
to see the country at close range in
an auto.    If people  are to be con-1
vinced of the attractiveness of this
country for investment it must be
presented to them  in the real and
not left to the dreams of visionary
townsite agents  and land brokers.
'Seeing    is  believing.'     And   the
man who doubts, or hesitates, must
be  'shown.'     Then  there    is  the
matchless   scenery, which  in any
financial   considerations   of   profit
must be allowed a place among the
assets of the country, for it is a fact
that this  item  brings tourists and
tourists  bring  money.    There are
side views  obtainable from an auto
which no other means of transit so
easily  afford.     Jaunts   from    the
main road might be taken into the
picturesque valleys,to certain mines,
fishing  resorts  and  fruit districts.
Crossing the  Hope mountains this
road could be so  located  as to give
one of the grandest views of mountain scenery to  be found anywhere
and offering also a veritable sportsman's  elysium.     As  much of the
road  is already built there remains
only the linking up to be done and
the old existing  roads put in good
condition.    The  road  through the
Similkameen . to   the  Boundary   is
in shape for any kind of travel and
from   Princeton  to Hope via Summit Camp or  the present trail from
Ashnola, could be built at moderate
cost  and  serve  the  mining camps
through  which they pass.    There
is no doubt  the  Minister of Public
Works  has  struck a lead that will
assay high in public favor.

is too important for party capital to
be  made   of it.    It   is  a national
question, therefore above the trivialities of party and every  member
of parliament will have the right of
expression   without fear of either
of the party whips.   The member
for Yale Cariboo will have opportunity at the approaching session
to 'make good' on this question and
with his well known ability help to
get this navy construction yard aDd
arsenal established where it will be
most convenient and do the most
good.
It is known that toward the
Pole a vast furbearing and fish district is open for commercial negotiation by some enterprising
Canuck. Whale and musk-oxen
are said to abound.

RAGING FOREST FIRES.
From First Page.
' precautions fires would soon be reduced
to purely accidental causes. No precautionary measures will, however, avail
^.without rigid administration of the law
and punishment inflicted, even if be the
"Lord Duke ot Mackackiack' found
guilty.
Along educative  lines it  would  be a
good   move    to   print    instructions   for
campers and     outing  parties  regarding
safely^ in   making  fire  for cooking purposes.    These instructions   along with a
copy   of the  Fire  Act.   mailed to every
voter and distributed also to non-voteis
by  constables and government officials,
who would take the name and address of
all such persons.    Ry a strange oversight
or neglect few copies of the Bush Fire
Act seem to have been distributed here.
The danger is apparently over for this
year, meanwhile the government could
go on perfecting its Fire Act.
The importance of applying some
remedy to the woeful waste of human
life and timber every year will be recognized by the following statement in a
bulletin issued by the Forestry department at Ottawa: The damage done by
forest fires in 1908 in- the Dominion is
estimated at $25,500,000, of which 90 per
cent was in British Columbia. Twenty-
one lives were lost as the result of forest
fires, and all these were in B.C.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228,
CHAPTERS:   25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology- geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for tbe facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copner mines.
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.

or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The'most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
MINES AMD MINING.
There are evidences ot an awakening
in mining generally throughout the Sim-
ilkameen. With the building of warships on Burrard Inlet there will be a
demand created for all coarse metals and
some of the finer ones. The proximity
of the Similkameen to proposed navy
yards at the coast must always be an im-
PO-tant factor in obtaining coal, ore and
victualling supplies.
A   B   W-   Hodges,   manager  of tbe
Grauby smelting, works says : -The outlook for copper is good.   We are looking
for an advance in price about the first of
the new year.   It will  not  be anything
like the big jump of some years ago he-
cause a great many new producers in the
United States have entered the market
during the past two years.   Good times
are almost here again and business will
continue to improve.   Consequently'the
improved industrial conditions will be
sure to increase copper production.*
The Summer Iron Works of Everett,
Wash., has about closed a deal for 30
acres of land between Westminster and
Vancouver, on which will befferected
locomotive and machine works to cost
*«x>,ooo. The Burton Saw Works has
.cured a site near the Summer Iron
Works on whicn it will also erect a large
plant.
Payday at the Granby mines for August was the biggest yet, the amount
being $50,000 in wages.
