 Development of Princeton includes a smelter nearby.
Think no evil, then actions will be right, bearing lovely fruit.
Construction of the B.C. Portland Cement works in full swing—Coalmont, with its immense deposits of coking coal, is a town of
great possibilities—Hedley, world-renowhed for gold, and Keremeos unexcelled for fruit, the Similkameen is indeed a land of plenty.

DIAMONDS ARE PURE
Olivine Diamonds of Excellent
Quality; Size Remains
for Proof.
Many Claims Staked Already—Ground
Requires Prospecting for
Larger Gems.
     X
The Canadian diamond has-been tested
by the greatest gem experts in the world
and pronounced equal in quality to the
famous product of South Africa, said R.
A. A. Johnston, mineralogist and curator
of the geological suryej^at Ottawa recently according to a press dispatch.
In January last diamonds were discovered on the Olivine mountain in British
Columbia. It was the firstdis£ag_E_. of
its kind made in Canada ahd Mr. Johns
ton naturathjrbecatne "greatly interested
and sent for specimens of the glittering
gems. The discovery soon became noised
about and other mineralogist in different
parts of the world also became interested.
Among those in whom the discovery
awakened a keen interest was___t_-___nz,
the Tiffapy gem expert, and one of the
foremost authorities on precious stones in
the world. He wrote Mr. Johnston from
New York and asked him to send speci
mens of the Canadian diamonds for the
purpose of having them tested. Instead
of sending specimens, however, Mr.
Johnston went to New York himself and
took a quantity of the gems with him.
As Good as the Best.
Dr. Kunz and others were greatly surprised at the beauty of the Canadian
diamond and they are now enthusiastically singing its praises. Dr. Kunz
made tests with radium in a dark_i;o.ojn.
The Canadian diamond was placed alongside the South African product and showed itself to be its equal. It phosphoresced the same as any well ordered diamond should.
This particular occurance is regarded
as likely to throw more light on the origin of the diamond than any other occurrence elsewhere. We have been searching through the rock and with the aid of
microscopic slides have been able to see
the diamond ~__~the rock. This is the
first occasion on _w_i>h this hasbeen
il.-doge.
While in New York Mr. Johnston gave
an address on the Canadian diamond before the New York Mineralogical club at
the American Museum of Natural History. He exhibited the diamond and all
were enthusiastic about it.
'The quality of the diamond is beyond
dispute,' said Mr. Johnston. 'The only
uncertain thirigabout it now is the size.'
J. D. Andras is expected home with his
bride on Friday.
PLATINUM AND GOLD
Dredge will Operate on River
Placers to Recover the
Precious Metals.
Values in Gold and Platinum Found
Running at $1.00 Per
Cubic Yard.
The importance of Princeton district
in the eyes of the mining world finds
expression in the wide publicity given
the discovery of diamonds, and in the
successful tests made last winter for platinum arid gold in the placers of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers. It is
quite probable that no other section of
mineral country in the world of similar
area can produce anything like the value
or variety of the precious metals and
stones found here. The*r_4<fowing is from
the Victoria_£olonist:
The completion by the Great Northern
of its line to Princeton is reviving interest in the rich placer gronnds. in the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers. Princeton is 150 miles east of Vancouver. It
was about 15 years ago that placer mining on these rivers ceased. The miners
had worked down as far as they could by
hand, and it was impossible to transport
dredges into the country because of the
absence of railway facilities. Last winter
several Vancouver men acquired fifteen!
miles on both rivers aud proved soma
6000 feet with a Keystone'drill. The|
average taken from the drill holes shows
the value of the ground to be more than
$1 a cubic yard in gold and platinum.
Platinum in Big Demand.
As the Ural mountains in Russia contain
virtnally the sole known supply of the
world's platinum deposits, mining experts attach tfreat importance to the work
now in process at Princeton. The Platinum-Gold Fields Co., Ltd., whose per-,
sonnel includes John McLeod, David B.l
Boyd, W. C. Brown, John F. Tener, supervising engineer on the ground at
Princeton, has purchased an open bucket
New Zealand California dredge with aj
capacity of 2,500 cubic yards a day, and,
this dredge will be shipped into Princeton this summer.
In che 6,000 feet _|ieff&y blocked out,
the actual value in gold and platinum is
estimated at .$1,160,000, The life of the
ground blocked out is placed at from five
to six years. The scene of present operations is just above the Nickel Plate
mines at Hedley, which last year yielded
a net profit of $200,000.
J. E. McCauley returned from Spokane Monday and will start work on the
Reco and other mining properties on
Copper mountain.
ROADS AND TRAILS
Member Visits Princeton District and Consults Needs
of People.
Trunk Road Has Difficult Link; Trail
to Steamboat/and Other
Mining Camps.
v —	
L W. Shatford, M.P.P., and Road Superintendent Turner are now making a
tour of inquisition and inspection of
Princeton district, inquiring into the
needs of the people and recommending
road and trail improvements and construction wherever needed.^ Mr. Shatford
is himself a living example of that progress and thrift which follows personal
honor and business energy; he has made
good, very good, for the Similkameen
district and his name will be written on
an unsullied page of history as ' L. W:,
the promise keeper.'
The trunk road to connect Alberta with
the Pacific coast is of deep concern to the
member and the difficult link to locate
and construct lies between Princeton and
the west slope of Hope mountains, most
in his constituency. The Fiveruilqi
route ' is being located^now by R. H
Parkinson, P.L.S., and will eventually
connect with Summerland and Pentio"'
ton.
Some of the Public Works.
Of the roads trails and bridges receiving immediate attention the following
may be named : Trail to SteamboajtjJ.i
Snow^e_,,_foreman ; Hope trail, S. Spencer ; Whipsaw trail, Day i£"Knight; road
to be completed up Tulameen river to
West Princeton collieries; extension of
Fivemile road, SIR/ Gibson; road to
Holmes mountain \ia,_De_t^jralley, J.
Budg ; Wolf Creek road, W. A. Davis and
Onemile road, J. Hedley. Extension of
sidewalks begun last year, Bridge street
grossing at junction of Vermilion av. and
|pther improvements will be carried out.
Mr. Shatford reports the country prosperous and progressive, due largely to
the railway policy of the government.
He is building a -fine coun$_y residence
on Lake Skaha, a central part of his
constituency, from whence he may reacK
by auto the outlying parts of the Simir
kameen in a few hours. Being a man of
affairs he transacts/a large amount of
public and private Business and is a very
busy man, whichvlatter fact caused him
to refuse notable invitations to the coronation ceremonies in London. He left
for Hedley today on Jim Hill's limited.
J. C. Wilson, representing P. Burns &
Co., arrived from Nelson today.
Direct mail from Merritt to Princeton
will leave Tuesday mornings, from Princeton on Thursdays.

B. C. Cement   Co.   Making Superior
Qftality of Lime—The Band
is Organized.
What promises to be both excellent in
quality and varied in character is one of
those popular entertainments given by
the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary on Friday
evening next in the I.O.O.F. hall. The
program is of wide range, to suit all
lovers of good entertainment. Music,
instrumental and vocal, will be presented
by new exponents of the art that charms
and soothes besides our well known and
popular local talent. Recitations, solos,
duets, quartets and choruses, dumb-bells,,
bagpipes, step dancing and orchestra,
will be heard and seen with pleasure.
The cause appeals to everyone.   Come ! ■
Mrs. F. A. Howse returned from a short
visit to Nicola last Monday.
W. J. Budd of the B.C. Cement Co.,
arrived yesterday.
The excellent quality of the lime now
being burned by the B.C. Cement-Ge^is
proven by actual use in the masonry for
the cellar of the building being erected
by BerJJ_,win. The masons say that the
bond of this lime is much stronger than
any other they have used and it slakes
in five minutes/ other limes taking as
many hours. Vtt is a great benefit to
Princeton and district to have such a
splendid building material nearby.
Rev. J. Williams will officiate morning
and evening in the school house, next
Sunday, May 14th. A meeting of the
Church of England congregation will
be held immediately after the evening
service.
R. Peterson, coal expert, arrived from
Montana yesterday and will examine the

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It will be a matter for congratulation all around if the conciliation
board in the big strike of coal miners succeed in bringing about an
early settlement of the difficulty
between the owners and employees.
Taken in the abstract there is never.
a good reason for a strike or lockout. Men ought to be reasonable
enough and in possession of the
spirit of compromise which adjusts
all troubles, to settle labor disputes
without resort to what is virtually
war with its concomitants of want,
hatred and woe and loss on both
sides. No matter which side wins,
if the strike be prolonged, there is
a loss to the country which cannot
be regained. Where the law now
seems to fail is in its inability to
jprevent strikes altogether.
The Senate at Ottawa has taken
into consideration the eight hour
bill, a measure to make legal and
define a working day as consisting
of eight hours. There are three
natural divisions of the twenty four
hours : work, sleep and play. In
this materialistic age there is a ten
dency to allow the working hours
to encroach upon those of sleep and
play. Nothing could be more injurious to the physique of a people
than the long hours of incessant
.toil which develop the man into a
mere machine. The big, fat senators whom we see with our mind's
eye reclining on a splendid seat in
their chamber, will, no doubt, take
good care that they do not work
more than eight hours a day. In
any case eight hours is the logical
work day and any effort to make it
legal will be welcome by the poor
workingmen of Princeton.
or grafting prevails which is ruinous to the independence, efficiency
and character of the employee. It
is generally known that a tip works
wonders with a waiter, securing
prompt and obeisant service—the
same applies to all who accept tips.
It is time something was done to
remedy the tipping nuisance, by
which the people are bled to swell
the coffers of some railway, steamship or hotel corporation, and as in
the case of underpaid public servants their pay should be ample to
preclude any excuse for tipping.
An act of parliament making graft
or tipping a punishable offence is
about the only remedy in sight for
the degrading" practice.
The Boston News, after eulogizing the resources, climate and people of Canada, says : 'In twenty
years the Canadian northwest will
be growing more wheat and raising
more hogs and cattle than either the
United States or Russia, and Canada will be a nation of 20,000,000.'
Boosting such as this is well worth
imitation by the Tory press of Canada, who are continually painting
dismal word pictures of the future.
They profess to see calamitous results from expansion of trade with
the United States through reciprocity and they feel somewhat uneasy
about the large number of American settlers coming to the country
lest they should set up a republic.
Well, the farmers are the backbone
of Canada—when they are prosperous the whole country is prosperous—and it is good statesmanship
to encourage them by helping their
products into a larger market and
better prices. Reciprocity will do
this, and yet some hidebound parti-
zans knock it for all their puny
blows are able. Canada needs all
the reciprocity she can get.
Some legislator or government
-will earn undying fame and the
gratitude of millions of people if
the tipping system so prevalent in
hotels, railway dining and sleeping
cars, steamers, and among the various public services, were abolished
entirely. The railway companies
underpay their waiters and attendants relying on their ability to
make good any deficiency in wages
by obtaining tips from the public.
It is a most demeaning practice for
large companies dealing with the
public to enforce a principle which
places its employees on a par with
the beggar. The same is true of
governments and their servants.
From the poor, underpaid menial
.to the official  a  system of lipping
" Princeton board of trade has had
a precarious existence during all
the past years of depression caused
by a dilatory railway construction
policy. The board has accomplished all that could reasonably be expected considering its limited membership. The burden of maintain-;
ing it and meeting various outlays
of money for the benefit of the
public have been borne by a very
few citizens. It has long since
passed the critical stage of its existence, outlived the scoffers and
knockers and demonstrated its usefulness beyond all question. Certain conditions in the evolution incident to progress have arisen, in
which every citizen should exercise his influence, and nowhere can
that influence be exercised to better advantage than in the board of
trade. The board is non-political
and absolutely fair in all its transactions and any person with an idea
or proposition of merit for the public welfare is certain to be well received. Why not become a member?
