There's a
Reason
Don't worry Over things that may never happen.
It Is true that the Similkameen is a Settlers' Paradise—Climate, Conditions and Surronndings Favorable.
Coal is the backbone of Priuceton and must make a City of it.—Property is rising in value and Investments made now will bring early reward*

TULAMEEN PUTINg
Big Flume on Granite Creek
gave Poor Results and
Legal Squabble.
Found Platinum at Mouth of Eagle
Creek on Tulameen River
in Quantity.
[Continned from last week-[
The washing was ari operation eith< r
in a string of long sluice boxes or a
rocker, by which means the platirfum
was concentrated with the gold in tl e
black sands. The earliest attempt at
hydraulicing on Granite Creek was that
undertaken by R. Stevenson and W. E.
Hogg in 1891. A flume four miles in
1-ngth was installed on the wst bank of
Grauite Creek and work started onclaitrs
lying about three quarters of amileabo- e
the mouth of the creek. The promoters
of this company became iuvolved in litigation with the owners of ground below
tuera, and were forced into liquidation.
The court, acting as teceivers, secured, it
is stated, from the sluice boxes about $900
principally gold. Mr. Hogg afterwards
worked a small'pit four miles below the
mouth of Granite Creek, and washed the
gravels from an old high channel of the
Tulameen river. This venture was continued far in the; season, but in the following spring the pit filled with wash
from the mountain side and was never
reopened.
Packed a Saw Mill on Horses.
In 1892 the Tulameen Improvement
Co. began -operations on a~t>ench on tbe
Tulameen river below the mouth of
Eagle Creek. A sawmill was imported
at a time when the only means of transport was pack horses, and placed at the
mouth of Eagle Creek. A flume was
*Duilt to convey water from the Creek,
and hydraulicing operations were carried
on for two seasons under the direction of
Judge Murphy, The proportion oT~gold
to platinum at this point was about one
to tvya. and the recovery of platinum was
high ; but the available ground was limited and the results obtained did not pay
for the cost of plant and management.
At the mouth of Slate_Creek hydraulic
operations were conductedby Alexander
Swaii—Qn, a high bench a,bove theTula-
meen river, but the boulder clay met with
was so compact and stiff that water had
little effect upon it' and the undertaking
was consequently not a success.

FIRE WARDENS.
Proper   Precautions for   Preventing
Destructive Forest Fires.
The provincial government evidently
is fully alive to the necessity for the prevention of forest fires. A system of patrol
has been instituted and the province divided into districts with fire wardens in
iharge. Those officers are to be ever
yigilant and upon the outbreak of fire
will take every means to control it and
discover the person responsible for the
fire. Anyone finding fire in remote of
s ttled parts should immediately report
it to the nearest warden. By cooperating
with the fire wardens settlers and other
property owners, will not only protect
themselves but prevent the destruction
of valuable timber on private and public
lands. J. O. Coulthard has been appointed fire warden for district No. 11
which begins at Princeton and includes
the teiritory north, west aud south from
that ptiit. W. T. Atherton is warden
for the district easterly from Princeton.
With these watchful wardens patrolling
t e country damage by running fires will
b reduced to a minimum and the incautious firelighter will have difncnlty in
escaping the strong arm of the law. W.
C. Gladwin, Vancouver, is chief fire
WH-d«ii_J!pPTfre~Tm5yThce. TBe- pay of
the fire wardens is $5 per day and ex-
"psnses.
BASEBALL, THE GAME.
Princeton Baseball Club are in fine
fettle, with their daily practice and club
exercise and it is too bad no date has
been arranged for the immediate future
in which to try conclusions with another
nine. It is no fault of the Princeton boys
that a match is not on for the 24th for
Secretary'Mike' (Carmichael) has been
corresponding with local aggregates in
the district, but to no purpose. The bo} s
will all look fine In their new suits and a
betferb u n ch of baseball talent is not to
be found in the Similkameen or any othea
district. That is the sporting editor's
view, anyway, and it ought to count
some.    Strike, one !

work Star is delayed bevond its usual day

RAILWAY BRIDGES NOT YET
READY FOR TRAFFIC.
The regular passenger trains have not
yet been able to resume their former runs
owing lo the bruises still heing unsafe
between Hedley andKeremeos. Large
gangs ot work men are busy repairing the
damages to the piers by«,the high waiter
of two weeks ago. It is thought that in
another week or ten days passenger and
freight trains will be moving regularly.
Passengers and mails are now transferred
at the bridges and brought to Princeton
by the work engine and caboose. More
than two dozen cars~of freight are now
lying at Keremeos for points west. For
the present mails and passengers arrive
at about 10 p.m. and depart at 5 a.m.

KING GEORGE V.
Hail to the new King ! His
Majesty King George V. became
ruler of the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and .Ireland and'of
the British Dominions beyond the
Seas, Emperor of India, on May
7th. Iu his forty-fifth year, he has
already had considerable experience in state affairs, and gives evidence of good, sound judgment in
all that pertains to the great authority which he wields. While
heir-apparent and Prince of Wales
he visited Canada and made a very
favorable impression' upon the people. In tbe present political crisis
in England he will have opportunity to prove his capacity not only
as king but also as statesman. If,
like his father, or his illustrious
grandmother, he is able to command'
tbe confidence of his subjects, then,
no matter what political tempests
may arise, he will cope with them
satisfactorily. However, there is
ample room for the belief that he
will rise to the occasion and prove
a wise ruler with many of tbe'aff -
ble traits of his father. Canadians
will give to him the same loyal
adherence that was given the late
king and will wish bim long life
and a happy and prosperous reign.
God Save the King !
The following extract from the
London Observer regarding King
George is timely and gives a home
estimate of hi;n. It says : 'He is
better understood in other parts of
the Empire than at horce, but his
subjects in Great Britain will soon
know his worth, his serious self, his
patriotism, his pa?sion for the imperial ideal, the directness and candor of his nature, his sympathy
and courage. Owing to his self-
imposed quiet role, some believe him
of reactionary mind, others as likely
to set his own impression on affairs.
Both are absurd errors. King
George was indoctrined with the
true meaning of empire during his
early world tours. With all the
fervor with his belief in Empire,
His Majesty is not likely to forget
that twentieth century kingship
demands sociai service, and will be
in a special sense the monarch of
the masses.'
The London Times says : 'King
George V. will come to the throne
with all the knowledge of public
affairs and all the training which it
is possible to impart to an heir apparent.     We have  lost  a beloved
and a great constitutional King,
but he has left us a successor in
whom we may confidently repose
our trust.' Thus, it will be seen,
our King begins his reign under
very favorable auspices and with
promise of success.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
.   (New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:   1228.
CHAPTERS:   25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geol-
°*?y- 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 the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper 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 cannoi
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook givrs statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed n.'ine 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 eacri
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE: $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you ?
