The measure of a country's wealth is in its raw resources, without these it is 'no man's land ?—Princeton and district are not excelled
in variety or abundance of minerals—A smelter Is  an Immediate necessity—Large gold and platinum dredging propositon in progress.

Voigt Camp Deal Progressing—Prospecting for Platinum-Gold
on Kivers.
The deal for Voigt camp is practically
complete. Some legal formalities remain
to be carried out, Judge Hallett beinsj retained for the purpose. This deal is the
subject of much public interest and favorable comment. It means the expenditure
of big sums of money and the employment of a large number of men. The proposition embraces a smelter, the location
of which will be determined by the railway and other facilities for shipping and
operation.
W. C. Fry, of the Platinum Goldfields,
Ltd., is superintending the sinking of
shafts on their placer lease on the forks
of the Tulameen and Similkameen. C.
M. Snowden and Sam Moore are carrying
ouTT__Twork, the shafts being timbered
and sunk to bedrock. The work is ex-
pecfed to last for several months. Although there is little information to give
out to the public, yet it is known that the
values recovered are eminently satisfactory. Mr. Fry is an old- placerman aud
knows how to lure the yellow and gray
stuff from their hiding places.
It is possible that the Guggenheitns.
the largest placer miners in ihe wofW;
will become interested in a big dredging
proposition in this section. The 'Guggs'
are synonymous with success.
Wm. Murray has left a couple of samples of fine hematite ore at the Star taken

SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
While driving home Friday night in
their buggy, Mrs.j^.^Er-ejuan.herson,
and Percy W. Gregory were thrown from
the carnage which wasparl_ally upset by
the frightened horse. An engine on the
railway near the^tnnnel caused the mishap. Here the railway and wagon road
run closely together, until the crossing is
reached at the mouth of the cut entering
the tunnel. The unprotected condition
of the crossing and the railway line being
unfenced, make, the highway dangerous
to travel upon. Precautions against further accidents should be taken at once by
those responsible. Mrs. Freeman is ser.'»
ously injured and confined to her bed and
Mr. Gregory suffered contusions which
were very painful. Many friends will be
ijlad to see the patients fully recovered.
Tracklaying on the^vS^v. & E- is progressing as well as could be expected
through the Tulameen canyons, where a
succession of three bridges across the
river retards the 'railhead. . About five
miles of steel are now.faid. Much difficulty is found in construction of false
work, the piles striking bedrock too soon
to hold. Jt is not probable steel will reach
Coalmont before November.
As soon as the bridges/_re laid, five between Princeton and Obalmont, 14 miles,
tbe bridge gaijg will tackle the spur
bridge ftver^^be>S?uiilkameen, just west
of Maplihurift. /The B. C. Cement Co.
will have the kri.de ready for the bridge.
The annual general meeting of the Penticton Railway Co. is called^or October
18, in Vancouver. This is a branch of
the Great Northern /unning^rom Chop-
aca on the V., V. &:E. to Penticton.
Although no confirmation can be obtained officially, there is good ground f<
the general belief that the Kettle Vail
line will parallel the V., V. & E. down
Otter valley and the Tubrtneen river to
Princeton.   It seems there is some insurmountable difficulty\a following the ori
ginal  survey  from  Aspen  Grove across
country direct to Okanagan Lake.    As a
tonnage producing route, that via Coal
mont and Princeton is probably more inviting.
H. L. P. Chiene & Son have a heavy
contract on the Canadian Northern, near
Yale.
It is estimated that one hundred million dollars' wcrth of railway contracts
are now let in this province.

would be well repaid by a visit to the
claims.
Knight & Day have begun work on
the main lead of the Lucky Pair in Camp
Whipsaw, and expect to continue all winter producing ore. The large bin has
been completed and is the beginning of
what may be classed as the operation of a
first-class mine.
J. O. Coulthard and Jack O'Neil are en
gaged on a hydraulic proposition near the
old time Hogg property. They have found
both platinum and gold and are sanguine'
of making good cleanups Mr. Coulthard
will also begin development work on the
Roanie after 1st October.
About 200 tons "of coal are being shipped
daily by the Princeton Coal & Land Co
Extensive improvements at this mine will'
double the capacity.
A lot of development work is going on '
in the various camps, following being I
some of those who have either proved'
their properties or are proving them : J. '
E. McCauley, Copper mountain; Pou-j

Cox, Fivemile ; Sam Spencer and Hugh i
Campbell, Whipsaw, and Ernest Rice,
Coquihalla Pass. I
J. C. Edwards, recently arrived from a-
trip to Boston, Mass., has engaged apack I
train to take in a lot of supplies to Summit Camp.   He will be theic most of the
winter,  developing the silver-lead  property he has under bond there.
Col. Robeit Stevenson returned last
week from the Big Plateau aud this week
he goes to the Coquihalla Pass to fin 1, if
possible, a claim he located H__re some 40
•years ago. The veteran.is mile and hearty
and just as ambitious \g when a young
man.     ."'■..;.
Geo. Aldous and P. Larson are prospec-
tingand developing their properties along
the Hope range.
Mr. Bateman, of the Camsell geological
party, visited the Lucky Pair and said it
was a promising proposition. He said
there was a highly mineralized zone and
the lead was a true 'ficsure with the possibility of others being found in the zone
He camped at the Lucky Pair and examined as* much of Whipsaw as time permitted.

STAR.
Readers are respectfully asked to
bear with Star while it reasons a
little on that unpleasant subject
' shop.' With this issue the paper
is enlarged and improved. Reading
matter of this issue, although not
up to the standard aimed at, affords
an idea of the amount of space to be
devoted to this department. A
specialty will be made of local and
mining news, which, with the help
of those interested, will be made a
source of profitable information for
all. As Star is prospered it will add
new features, embracing an up-to-
the-last-minute telegraphic summary of the world's events, special
illustrated and descriptSre articles
and a digest of curraiitjlbought in
the realms of scieuRj^sport. religion,
sociology and invention. As a
newspaper it will adrtyft of nothing
yellow in its pages. The recital of
crime in all its sensational horrors,
brutai sports and the exposure of
unfortunates to public gaze will not
be tolerated in these columns. Correspondence is invited from anyone
who desires to put his or her opinions on any subject of public interest
in print and in printable language.
Whether a real or fictitious name is
appended to the articles matters not,
that is purely a question of taste for
the writer to decide, but the author's
real name must be given to the
editor as a condition of good faith
and honesty of purpose. In politics
the Star will not be hidebound, reserving the right to change its
creed to accord with the rights of
the people and as intelligent consideration of legislative acts seem to
demand.
In business Star will urge a return to the cash system, and, by example and precept, endeavor to
bring about that happy condition
laid down in the great law: 'Owe
no man anything., The grinding
misery and hardships caused by
debt, fills the prison cells with all
kinds of criminals, makes the bookkeeper tear his hair and pushes not
a few over life's cliff. Tbe government, railway corporations and
trusts do business-on the cash basis,
and there is no reason why  lesser
I Today ends the most strenuous
political campaign in Canada. Tomorrow and tomorrow will be all
the brighter and better for the pending victory for reciprocity. No word
now will have any influence for or
against it. The die is cast and the
proverbial handwriting is on the
wall. Canada will immensely add
to her already good reputation
among the nations of the world
by the adoption of a principle
that stands for equality, justice and
freedom.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Election of school trustee on Saturday.
This has nothing to do with reciprocity.
Len Huston is nursing a swollen arm
and h^nd as the result of probable blood
poisoning resulting from cleaning some
machinery at the waterworks pump.
Victor Voigt, iu a talk with the dramatic critic of the Star, emphasized the
necessity tfbr producing a play early in
the seasbn\and the formation of a club.
Vic has a\lo\ig roll of stage achievements
to his cr&diK and, as actor-poet-writer,
was a star Vmong the alumni of Wis college.    A dramatic club is all right.
A. M. Mclvor, Presbyterian student
missioner, who has so successfully filled
the pulpits here and at Coalmont, will
leave shortly to resume his studies in
theology at Vancouver college. He has
made many friends who will wish him
success in his high calling. He will be
succeeded by Mi. Gibson, a graduate of
the above college.
R. L. Cawston, a prominent cattleman
and oldtimer of Kersmeos, was shaking
hands with pioneers here last week. He
is largely interested in the deal which
disposed of the Lowe ranch. It is proposed to use this ranch for cattle raising
purposes, an industry for which it is well
adapted.
Mrs. F X. Richter, _>f Keremeos, was a
visitor last week, and inspected her large
land holdings here.
A heavy frost Sunday night has put
much of th_ garden stuff out of business.
Born—On the 8th inst , the wige of P.
Darragh, a danghter.
The father of Mrs. C. Saunders, at one
time resident of Princeton, passed away
yesterday at Dunkirk, Indiana.
C.J. Wilson, inspector for P. Burns Co.,
was in town last Thursday.
R. E. Ward, the energetic real estate
agent for East Princeton, was in town a
few days recently, leaving for Vancouver
today He is very pleased with the outlook here.
F. .. Howse and wife returned from a
visit to the coast last week, travelling via
the  great  scenic  route  over   the   Hope
mountains.
K. C. Brown returned from New Westminster last Saturday, where he was
visiting relatives.
R. H. Carmichael enjoyed holida)s at
the coast recently and took in the great
lacrosse match, when the ' bellies ' went
down to defeat with honor.
Vote for protection and a restricted
market. Vote for reciprocity and buy
where you can buy the cheapest in the
unrestricted market.

posits of Coal, Cement, Copper,| .§*__*], and
other importantl^Tinerals.   <qA\j\ /^
The British Columbia Portt_uid Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a lig=
nite coal of the besl quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred em=
ployees. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For  transportation, East   Princeton will
have, in the near future, the Great Northern
and the Kettle Valley lines, both of which,
Hj   will pass through the towwnsite.
East Princeton is beautifully situated on
the Similkameen River, with an abundance
of water power available. The new city has
every facter for growth into a big industrial

On March 31st, 1900, the light of the Star first reached the earth.
That will be 12 years ago next birthday. It was at first issued as an eight-page
paper by Jas. Anderson, who, owing to the delay in railway construction and the
consequent lack of progress, transferred his interests to A. E Howse, on March
ist, 1902. For nearly nine years Mr. Howse has been owner of the Star, excepting one year when B. Stone Kennedy operated it. Mr. Kennedy transferred his
interests to Mr. Howse and the paper has remained in his ownership until recently
transferred to J. M. Wright, who is managing editor of the Princeton Printing
and Publishing Co. The Star is now printed in eight-page form, affording all the
spaccfor news and advertising that the town requires. It is intended to keep the
Star fully abreast of the times, both in tbe mechanical and editorial departments.
A new office building, linotype machine, jobbing plant and presses are proposed.
To accomplish all in the program laid down the patronage of the public is vital.
Send along your subscriptions, advertisements, and job printing. No newspaper
can live without them. The interests of Princeton and district will be maintained
and defended by the Star to the best of its bumble ability—yotjr 'patronage is
courteously invited.
