WEALTH OF MINERAL
Sub-Bituminous Coal injrLarge
Area Producing Very
Superior Fuel.
Splendid Coking Coal at Granite Creek
or Coalmont—Brick Clays
and Molybdenite.
Coal—Coal is probably-the most vain
able of the known -ftiineral 'resources of
the "district. The ages 6f coki'"bearing
rocks are known, the one Cretaceous and
the other Oligsegaae in age. Only one of
these, however, namely the Oligocene,
has-so,far proved to'be productive.
I Cretaceous rqcT&s.are found in the valley
of the Fraser river, and also in a wide
belt bf rocks extending from the head pf
the Pasaytqa.: river to the head of the
Tulameen. I-a-the latter belt, .float coal
is reported to have been discovered on
Roche river and also on the upper waters
of the Tulameen, but no" seams have yet
been found in place. It is quite possible
that coal was never formed in these
rocks; but it is significant that extensive
coal beds h_v.e1:baen Workedsiri rocks of
this age in eastern British Columbia, on
Vancouver Island, and j in the northern
pait of the province.
•?' Good Domestic and Gas Coal.
Oligocene rocks occur in several smill
isolated basins throughout this region.
The rocksin these basins consit of sandstones, shales, conglomerates and coal.
Such basins are situated at Princeton,
Granite Creek, Nicola, Quilchena, Kamloops, Enderby, Nicoamen, Okanagan
Lake and. Wnite Lake. Each of these
Oligocene' basins contains some coal, and
most of them contain several workable
seams.- The coal is generally a lignite of
high grade, making an excellant fuel for
domestic purposes or for gas. Some of
the ba_ns-contain bituminous coals, such
as the railways require for steam raising,
artd these generally yield a firm coherent
coke that will be used by smelters when
occasion arises. The fixed carbon in
these coals varies from 40 to 60 per Gefltlf
and the water from 1.3 to about 7 per
cent. In most of them the ash is fairly
high.
The coal formation of the Princeton
basin covers an area of about 50 square
miles, and includes a considerable though
yet unknown quantity of coal. The
rocks are inclined at low angles and are
not much disturbed. A drill hole pear
the mouth of the Tulameen river sunk to
depth of 280 feet, passed through a total
of 34 feet 5 inches of coal. In this depth
three worakable seams of respectively 4
feet 6 inches,.6 feet 7 inches, and 18 feet
6 inches thick, were encountered. The
depth of this basin is at least 1,000 feet,
aud it is  prob_ble thatj it may  contain
other seams besides these enumerated.
The coal is classed as a high grade lignite, excellent for domestic purposes, but
non-coking. tf
Coking, Steam and Smithy Coal.
At Granite Greek the coal basin covers
about eight square miles, and here the
rocks have been tilted and lie at
angles of abont as degn__ff" ' At-4eas_-*4
workatjie" seams are known, varying in
thickness from 4 feet to 6 feet 6 inches.
The coal is bituminous, ahd of good
steaming quality. It also yields a bright,
firm coke but is high in ash.
Clays suitable for the manufacture of
bricks have not yet been largely exploited
in this district The presence of suitable
jelajg*' for this purpose, however are
known, though their working depends
for their success on their proximity to a
railway or the neighborhood of a good
local market.
£ Molybdenite in small particles has been
'observed in the gold ores of Hedlev, and
fin granite porphyry at the head of Bear
Creek. It occurs also in some quantity
at Champion Creek, wher _A.it has been
formed as a contact mineral- 911 the in-
tpisicii—of—granite- into limestone. It
also appears in small.-, veins associated
with the granite.
THE HOSPITAL CONCERT.
The program for the hospital benefit
concert includes vocal and instrumental
solos, duets and comic recitations. Mrs.
J. A; Brown has a comprenensive repertoire of song which will afford her scope
for excellent musical attainments. Mrs
Smith and daughters of Hedley are well
known accomplished musicians ,-. Mr. aud
MisST-Daly have won laurels wherever
they have appeared and Miss Wheeler
and Mr. Sauve are rifted entertainers.
The program is lengthy and au early be
ginning is desired. There should be a
bumper house and the cause is worthy.

PRINCETON BRASS BAND.
Probably the most flourishing institution in Princeton at the present time is
the band recently organized. It has a
membership, of 14 and talent is outcropping in places little suspected-. As is
apropos in a band there is harmony of
sound and spirit in this one, hence the
beaming countenance of Manager Rainbow. It is expected tbeband will make
its public debut thp^fst of July, which
will add materiaHy to the attractions of.
that day. Pr___f___£oulthard is conductor
and the new members are making good
progress.
MINES AND MINING.
Hueh Campbell, one of the old 4gers, f
now 75 years of age^fnd as .spry as an
eel"; has recently te&en out his4Qth_jnin-
ing license, a ro^rd hard to beat.
Placer miners are invited not to waste
their black sand concentrates but to ship
them-to Geo. W. McGhee, Metallurgical
Works, La Grange, Illinois.
C. W. Thompson, diamond expert, of
•Eilub-Tl-y, -South   Afrjca,   went  up to
Tulameen ]ast.wee^__d  will  make an\ -
examination of Olivine mountain.
Dr. Cameron,,an old timer in this section and Atlin /is examining placer
ground on the Upper Tulameen for the
Princeton Gol^/and Platinum Co. He is
accompanied by his wife.
The stampede to Steamboat has been
delayed by cold weather and cold feet.
However, there isAo doubt, about the
mineral riches of that camp and mining
on a permanent basis is sure to be estab- •,
lished there. Between Princeton and
Steamboat a conntry of vast mineral possibilities awaits the prospector.
Archie Cooper and Dennis Dwyer have
recently struck very rich free milling ore
in Coquihalla pass. At Summit City the
Star Mining Co. of Indianapolis is about

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The charge made against the
Hon. Frank Oliver, Minister of the
Interior, of having received money
from the Canadian Northern Railway Co. for exchanging land for
them is not likely to prove more
serious than the reckless assertion
of a malicious person who is bent
on revenge for some supposed political grievance. Those who are
intimately acquainted with the minister have no hesitation in expressing unqualified disbelief in the
charge. As a young man and pioneer of Edmonton Frank Oliver was
known as the soul of honor in his
business transactions and it is due
to that early developed characteristic which won for him the confi"
dence and esteem of so many. He
has literally hewn his way to the
top by honest methods aud it is not
probable he would now in his ad
vanced years make sacrifice of an
honorable name and career for the
sake of money. Of his own volition :jje has asked for investigatfon
into the charge and on the evidence
adduced Star expects to see him
entirely exonerated.
should know when an employee is
incompetent or unsatisfactory without waiting for a specific charge
from the public. Governments
should take lessons in the management of employees from railway
companies and other large i'fiflus-
trial concerns then there Would be
much-improved service.
The Vernon News is a Conservative organ and strong supporter of
the provincial _ go ver n ment.: put; u

tp express them. In a recent issue
it comments in forcible tends on1
the superintendent of the pr,6t.in-!
cial police who, it says, 'has long,
outlived'his usefulness.' Star is in
hearty accord with the News in
its efforts to remedy a grievance of
the public. When a public servant
has outlived his usefulness it is time
he should be relegated to some place
or condition where the people would
not suffer on account of his useless-
uess- In ordinary business management of employees failure to
give satisfaction is sufficient cause
for dismissal. It is different, how
ever, with governments for they
seem to hang onto a public servant
more tenaciously the less satisfacr
tipn. be gives. It is not to be wondered _t that all manner of corrup-
ti_A_," 'hig.h'h__.ded conduct, rank inefficiency and 'discourtesy should
result from officials who know they
are immune, from dismissal. This
is one of'the unfortunate things in
connection with party government.
A heeler can hold a.position so long
as he will 'divvy' with his superior
and the public, whe are the sufferers, can whistle.    The.government
Not with any intention of disturbing the peace and harmony existing among the press-jOf the Similkameen was mention made of the
Hedley Gazette in a leader on reciprocity two weeks ago in Star j
hence it js_a_pleasure to note-that
that intention,, .is, reciprocated .by
the Gazette in its reply. Only one
objection may be offered to tbeman-
ner in which Gazette "presents its
statement and that is its' apologetic
strain regarding Star's lack of time
to follow Hansard. If there i_ 'anything calculated to disturb'one's
equauanimity more than another it
is the subtle apology offered by an
opponent for seeming flaws in his
adversary's argument. However,
we are glad the Gazette 'came back,'
!as it relieves the monotony and
keeps the people in touch with a
very live subject, i The Gazette did
not disprove that Sir Johrr m„de
an appeal to the country on the eve
of an election with proposals for
reciprocity with the United States.
And it winds up by asking Star to
read what Z,__A. Lash, a, Liberal,
says about Sir. Wilfrid. Everybody
knows that^____'-''Lash-is a Toronto
millionaire, i»'_(.wrt wealthy on the
earnings of the iftiasses of the peo
pie, and he,; liJf,&.,tuost millionaires,
does not wairt Jany change in our

States fearing it might diminish his
r___-.£t_.' R'fs'Stf very fine for Mr.
Lash and the millionaire manufacturers to join in a propaganda that
aims to make the rich richer and
the poor poorer. They will denounce and brand as disloyal anything that will improve the conditions of the farmers ahd working-
men. Reciprocity makes for the
general good, while protection will
build up a few millionaires and
monopolists at the expense of the
many
