early placer miners along the Tulameen
tbe dredging company now holding lease
of the ground will profit by oversight of
these early-argonauts.
Bight Man, Bight Place.
Mr_.Camsell, the QoamTfon geologist,
first to make this discovery of diamonds,
has verbally tfiSCribedthgVTulameen section of surpassing interest to him and
the geological department is fortunate in
having one so competent and painstaking to examine this section. It is hoped
the minister of mines will continue to
assign Mr. Camsell to this section until
a complete structural survey is made, giving full details for the guidance _»f prospectors and investors.
Earth's Treasure Vaults.
Olivine mountain is about 26 miles
from Princeton, via road to Tulameen and
trail to the diamond field. It has long
been the Mecca of prospectors owing to
the highly mineralized formation and
exceptional characteristics but it is only
in recent summers that scientific investigation has begun to unlock the treasure
nature has snugly stored away and which
runs all the way from shaggy asbestos to
the most.'.popular of all gems—the diamond It is color, size and transparency
that determines the value of diamonds.
They are very useful in rock drilling machines, for cutting glass and diamond
dust is valuable to jewellers. There are
a billion dollars invested in diamonds.
All May Wear Diamonds.
The telegraphic announcement in the
daily newspapers that diamonds had been
discovered on Olivine mountain caused
some excitement in Princeton and saddles and snowshoes were looked _5T**No

hours This is not correct ; for a
i-inch fire nozzle, with the pressure
we have here in Princeton requires
200 gallons per minute, or 12,000
gallons per hour. Therefore, one
nozzle in 5 hours- would require
60,000 gallons (which is the capacity of the tanks). The duration
of this supply can be greatly lengthened by pumping and arrangements
are made whereby, at tbe shortest
possible notice, a further supply of
200 gallons per ./minute can be
pumped into jtfre tanks. This, I
consider, gives the town at present
a reasonable supply of water for
fire purposes. With the growth of
the town and with the hearty cooperation and support of its inhabitants the Princeton Waterworks
Co. will be found ever ready to enlarge and extend their systems to
§j?e8t their requirements.

Ground Tested by Drill Proves Satisfactory and Great Industry
May Besult.
The Platinuni-Gold Fields, Limited, of
Vancouver, which has some 20 miles of
the Similkameen and Tulame_en rivers on
lease from l_'6"~gbvernme_t, after a very
thorohgh test, of the auriferous ground
at tbe forks of the rivers here and in the
vicinity have ceased drilling and the mav
chine is being stored until required after
high water.
Ground is Good for Dredging.
About forty drill holes were sunk
resulting in such sat_Sf_ctorv returns that
will warrant the construction of c dredge
for the purpose ofjrecovering the platinum now known to be in the bars and
alluvial deposits generally within the
lease areas of the rivers. While there is
a dearth of detailed information for pub
lication enough is known to verify the
statement that values are satisfactory for
dredging purposes. The drill affords
absolutely reliable data from which to
base- average values and »hus reduce
placer mining by machinery to a science
even more accurate than by the primitive
hand process.
QJ_ The drill has demonstrated that bedrock is deeper- than supposed, probably
"YfrPC'"g tW-lV f-fin ffound the* forks.
In any case the pay-dirt with scientific
treatment in a modern dredge.will be
found to be more extensive than suspected by oldtime placermen who had not the
appliances for testing at depth.
Industry Large and Lasting.
*A beginning has now been made in
what is not unlikely to become a great
industry. In other countries, p&rticu^
larly New Zealand and California, vast
capital is invested in gold dredging, hundreds of machines costing from $30,000
to $100,000 being operated in this permanent and profitable industry. The area
of dredgable ground in Princeton district can only be, even approximately, es
timated, but lying within the river banks
there are several hundred acres. If the
bottoms and benches are included many,
times more acres will be added, in all an
area large enough for the founding of a
practically permanent industry. There
is also Granite creek and a number of
other auriferous streams which could be
worked.
Platinum High Priced.
.In the early placer days the rivers and
creeks were skimmed over in the rnsh
for big pay.   Platinum, or 'white gold,'
was then a drug it haying been bought
as low. as 50c. ind $2 per oz. Miners
wasted it in their quest for the more valuable goictN,Now,\ however,platinum is
*worth $38 per MKand there is no doubt
it will be the cmef value obtained by
•dredging on the uppej; Tulameen and its
tributaries. Platinum in place has not
been found in commercial quantities as
yet but the Dominion geologist is each
summer trying to solve its hidden location, believed to be in the vicinity of
Champion, Slate, Eagle and Kelly
creeks.
Experienced Engineers.
The B. C. Drilling and Dodging Co.
of Vancouver has the contract for all the

A True Prophet.
Princeton and district afford almost
every variety of mining, which proves the
prediction made by that eminent geologist,. Dr. Dawson, many years ago : That
unless all indications went astray there
would be found rich and extensive min-
e_r_l, _Blfo1_r_un^-Is^cno_'. Every year
new' light is thrown upon the hitherto
dark recesses of nature in Princeton district. Exploration and resultant discovery will open the way for development
and the establishment of vast metal pro
ducing industries. In the great evolv/2
tion now at hand Princeton must play an
important part if the spirit of progress
be not strangled with apathy and sloth.
As vigilance is the price of liberty so success is bought with industry and buoyant
hope.) I
