Princeton basin contains 800,000,000 tons of fine coal
Think all you speak, but speak not all you think.
In the centre of a vast ore and coal producing; district, where the soil and climate do not despise the big rosy apple or the succulent berry,
stands pretty Princeton, which nature has designed as a great distributing point—No social class distinctions here, the simple life prevails.

MINES AND MINING
Whipsaw Camp Interesting to
Miners: Promises Big
Mineral Harvest.
Ore Sample Collector Visits Camps in
District—Big Display From
Nelson District.
Charlie Day brought in some very fine
looking ore taken frotn the Lucky Pair
at Whipsaw last Saturday. It was taken
from the tunnel recently started as a
cut-off to the main lead and is about 50
feet from the month of the big tunnel,
driven-some 230 feet. The ore two weeks
ago assayed about $40 per ton, but now
that both depth and distance have increased, with less oxidization and gangue,
it is qujte probable the ore will run $60
ia gold, silver and lead. WhateverjX1
may assay, there is no doubt of its cbafig-.
ing, solidifying character which may be
taken to indicate richer ore. Knight &
Day are so encouraged with the bettering conditions and quality of the lead
that they will continue work until the
pure argentiferous galena is struck. With
some ten or twelve tons of high grade
ore on the dump, Knight & Day give
promise of being early shippers from
Whipsaw.
H. B Brown, of the Bulldog mines at
Hedley, was in camp last week on his
ore collecting tour for the Expo at Vancouver next week and later to be exhibited at the New Westminster Fair. No
better selection could have been made
for the purpose of collecting ore exhibits,
than Mr. Brown. He is a practical prospector and miner, leaving the theoretical
part for those who assume to know all
about it and are^xperts with the 'leedle
hammer.' He knows ore from gangue
and can' distinguish ledge matter from
mud, which is more than the critics can
do. Mr. Brown- has great faith in the
future of theSimilkameen as a mining district. He has been seven years in the
Hedley section, discovering and proving
mineral claims, sorting and sifting them
down and concentrating his labor on
those of particular merit. His Bulldog
mine is situated on the railway and is a
ready shipper, in the development of
which he has felt the pinch of pnrse and
lack of capital. While his credit is good
for all kinds of booze, which he does not
want, yet when he asks for powder on
■ time, which he does want, there is nothin'
doin.' If this order of things were reversed Brown could do business and the
wheels of industry would fairly b
There are, however, indications that a
turn in the tide has begun and capital,
having had a surfeit of real estate is now
turning to mining investments.   Brown
and all others who have learned to 'labor
and wait' must reap a bountiful reward.
The Similkameen needs capital and nothing attracts it more'quickly than a
good ore exhibit.
RAILWAY GRADE   NEAR DONE.
That the completion of grading on
the eighteen mile stretch west of Princeton is drawing nigh is proven by the
big gangs of men arriving in town during tbe last week on their way to the pay-
wicket and the railway station. Of the
actual roadbed yet to be completed a
hundred men will be detained to finish
up the contract of Stewart & Welch, who
are the oiiginal contractors for the whole
distance.
It is not yet known when the rails will
be laid and the bridges built. However,
it seem to be only a businesslike propo
sition thftt the line would be made readv
for earnings as soon as possible.
COLUMBIA COAL & COKE CO.
/Tfie following are the officials and directors of the Columbia Coal & Coke
Co., recently in attendance at a meeting
held at Granite Creek for the purpose of
transacting important business: President, J. W. Bettes, Winnipeg; Vice-
President, J. T. Johnson, Vancouver;
Secretary-Treasurer, W. L. Parrish, Winnipeg ; J. E. Grey, Winnipeg ; Attorney-
General of Manitoba, Colin C. Campbell;
J. Brown, Winnipeg. Important work
will be immediately started in the development.of their property.
TESTING CLAY DEPOSITS.
The fact that nearly 60 per cent, of the
clay products utilized in Canada are imported from the United States, while Canadian clay deposits lie undeveloped, is
the cause of action on the part of the
Dominion bureau of mines, whereby two
clay experts, H. Reis and J. Keele have
been delegated to make a tour of the
Dominion, collecting as they proceed,
samples of the clay deposits in the districts accessible by railroad, to be sent to
Ottawa to be tested to ascertain their
value as material for brick or tile manufacture. These two men will take samples of clay in the beds that are known
to exist but that as yet have not been developed. The results of the tests will
eventually be published in the form of a
bulletin, which will be of great value to
business men who may desire to invest
capital in a clay development enterprise.
Prospectors, what about clay deposits in
Princeton district ?

HORSE AND CATTLE MARKET.
If the farmers and horse and cattle

a large number of buyers and sellers together on a given day, affording opportunity for marketing which could not
otherwise be obtained. A little effort,
some' advertising and inducements properly presented must bring about the desired results. Come to the meeting in
the Court house on Monday evening at

Moustaches are going out of fashion.

and where thejfeps are well moulded and
the mouth shapely the improvement is
striking. The barefaced style may be
considered renascent of the mediaeval
Greeks and Romans whose statuary are
minus the moustache.

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,

districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the

Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.

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

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.
