Diamonds, Platinum, Gold, in Princeton district.
It is never wise to heed sarcasm or trust ill reports of knockers.
Vast natural resources affording choice opportunities for investment—Princeton is .50 miles from Vancouver via V.,V. & E.': when completed this
road will reduce time and rates to coast many fold—Outfitting point to Steamboat—Recent diamond discovery on Olivine mountain is attractive.

EDITOR'S AWFUL IGNORANCE.
London Chronicle Makes 'Bad Break'
on Tulameen Diamond Field.
Star has a bone to pick with the
London [Eng.] Chronicle. In a
writeup of the diamond discovery
it says, among other things, that
the ' diamond district is. in a mountainous region, the nearest railway
station being Keremeos, on a new
branch line of the C.P.R., and is
about 50 miles from Princeton, the
nearest place to the find. Princeton and Granite Creek are little
more than lumbering camps or
mountain villages,' &c. .For asup-
posedly respectable city paper to
be guilty of such, glaring falsities
as to locations, etc., and then malign our town bJ^JSHnrg it 'village'
and iumbeftWCmp.'/_>tar demands
earjj^apology. Meanwhile the hon.
member for St. Pancakes, J. Martin, Esq., is requested to see that
as a question of privilege this matter is aired in the house of commons. If that poor, fog-brained
editor of the Chronic does t®>t know
where or what Princeton is he must
learn.    He  should  read Star long
and regularly. A dnj*■jo*?^'

SINKING FOR COAL.'
R. W. Shirley, one of the managers of
the CnilliwackPrinceton Coal Co., was
in town recently inspecting" the work
done on the property. The .shaft sunk
to a depth-of 141 feet did not reach the
main seam/of coal, although it pierced a
4-fooi /earn at 85 feet. The work, now
stopped, has been conducted by Wm.
Wilson, who has tnade.a very substantial
shaft and given employment to a gang of
men all winter. Every indication of
coal is present and the formation justifies
further prospecting by drill or shaft to
locate the seam wtycb outcrops at the
Tulameen bridge. With the advent of
the Kettle Valley railway in Princeto
good shipping facilities will be afforde
this mine;
A large topographic map of the
Princeton district, including the
new diamond field, will be commenced this spring by the Dominion geological survey.

mining center.
We intend to give the exhibit a prominent position and make it a meeting place
for all interested in mining. Mail will
be delivered at the exhibition grounds
and a desk with stationery will be provided for visitors.
, The ores for the exhibit should be an
average sample of the property and at
the same time show samples of the high
grade ore. Single specimens may run to-
fifty pounds and hand specimen sizes as
large as convenient.
Arrangements have been made for the
care and return of any rare and valuable
specimens. Any inquiries along this
line will be replied to with pleasure.
Any large specimens of special interest
to the mining public we will be pleased
to arrange for in connection with the
permanent exhibit.
We will arrange for ttie boxing of the
ores and transportation, so that no inconvenience will be caused during the
gathering period.

VANCOUVER EXHIBITION.
Editor Star—Sir : We are desirous of
securing an exhibit of ores for our exhibition that will be a credit to tbe province. The railroads have consented to
aid in this matter, and if you could see
your way to cooperate with us to the
extent of giving the subject publicity,

' LIBELLOUS BRUCE'
EDitor Star.—Sir, I do not read the Saturday
Sunset on account of it being so unreliable, but
I understand that that publication is advocating^
a route to Steamboat mountain by Cniliwack
Lake arid: another by Silver Creek, "Bruce must
have been misinformed brVhe" would not try to
mislead the people. The route by Chiliwack
Lake is not likely to be open before July and besides there is the lake to cross by ferry.
There is no trail by Silver Creek and never has
been. When the VS-^^&E surveyed the Silver
Cfe&t route they camped four n_____j~fi,om the
summit on either side and of course eight miles
of the route never had a trail. Bruce says there
is plenty of horse feed by way of Silver Creek.
He had better guess again and try and get a little
nearer the truth next time. Bruce can get a map
that will tell him something about that country
by applying to the Prince*on Board of Trade.
Yours respectfully,
PROSPECTOR.
WHY EXAGGERATE ?
EdItor Star.—Sir. Knowing you are short
of paper and through no fault of .our own, I will
make this letter as brief as I can.   I wish to call
ttention to a misstattment published in the
Spokesman-Review of March 3lst under the
caption of "Prospectors, experts e„cited over a
diamond find on the Tulameen." It states:
"Ernest Rice, an old diamond miner of South
Africa, wfitrftas-located claims—in the-_*_i_ond
field says the blue clay and all on Olivine mountain is identical to some of the fields of Africa."
Now, Mr. Rice has never seen Africa, and says
he warts to publicly deny having ever made
such statements. He knows such will not only
hurt him but all of us if let go. The facts which
we get from the goverment geologist is all that
is necessary. The field will be prospected. All
I can add is my opinion and that is the find will
prove of commercial value, for there is a clay
there, if I may call talc, claj', it occurs iv small
veinlets. Your3"_'«l_T*'"^

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
News of the discovery of diamonds on Mt. OlivineAnear the Tulameen river, has now encircled the
world. While there is «o doubt as
to the existence of diamonds there
it is folly to exaggerate and report
that they are plentiful or in commercial quantity when, as yet, no
development work has been done.
DeceptivereppSts, if uncontradicted,
are injurious and reactionary, causing probable investors to reconsider
or abandon intended investment
when the truth has been learned.
There is no necessity for inflated
reports or statements in any case,
much less for the recent diamond
discovery, which is genuine and
perfectly safe in standing on its
real merits. The whole upper Tulameen country is rich in precious
minerals and will well repay a visit
by prospector or intending investor.
The increase  of price for crown
lands is undoubetdly a good stroke
of business on the part of the government and is*in line with a policy
which   rather encourages   and prefers the actual settler as against the
mere speculator.    Land iu this province  has,  owing  to physical rug-
gedness, a   large area of unproduc
•tive soil and it is none too soon that
the government has  taken this further step in conserving the remaining land suitable   for farm, grazing,
or   any   of   the   purposes   of   the
the.bona fide  settler.    If Star may
venture an opinion it would   advise
the  government   to   withdraw   all
remaining land   from sale, conserving it for   the homebuilder   as   his
right   and   heritage.    In   this way
population, an   essential   of growth
or greatness, may  be obtained.    In
the  cancellation  of the old regulations some hardship will be  felt by
those who   had  expended considerable sums in   advertising   in   newspapers, travelling   and locating the
land  which   they   are  now denied.
As a matter   of equity and fairness
to all  who  have  suffered through
the arbitrariness   of the enactment
it would at least be within the powers of tbe  government to apply the
-Golden Rule   in cases of this kind.
In  the  event of the  Golden Rule
not   being   in    the   B. C.   statutes
or in the minds of the. authorities
a test case in  one of the  courts is
probably the only way.  Tbe present
increase amounts to ioo per cent.
Jsatexat Ottawa and Washington.
It is remarkable how dissimilar are
the views of those opposed to it on
either side of the line ; the Canadians averring that the UnitedStates
would reap all the gain and the Americans ferociously vowing that all
the advantages would accrue to the
Canuck. The effect of such argument on tbe great silent majority of
thoughtful people on either side of
the line is to spur them into opposition of the jawsmiths on general
principles. Most progressive peo'
pie are adventurous ; the cry of 'let
well enough alone,' does not appeal
to them. They are ready to take
a chance, or experiment, with the
aim of expanding their trade. The
man or the nation that will not try
to expand business when opportunity offers will soon find that they
are being outstripped by more enterprising neighbors. Neither reciprocity nor free trade can come
any too soon for progressive Canadians.
With business in healthy condition, bnildings in progress and projected largely in excess of any previous year, expensive improvements
to the Princeton Coal and Land
Co's colliery, the building of the
big works for the B.C. Portland
Cement Co., and the development
of the Princeton Collieries Co's
mine in readiness for shipping, this
will be tbe busiest year in tbe history of Princeton.
