Princeton basin contains 800,000,000 tons of fine coal
Think all you speak, but speak not all you think.
In the centre of a vast ore and coal producing district, where the soil and climate do not despise the big rosy apple or the succulent berry,   .:MM
stands pretty Princeton, which nature has designed as a great distributing point—No social class distinctions here, the simple life prevails.

THE BOARD OF TRADE
Ore Samples  in Urgent Demand for Display at
the Expos.
Resolution Urging Necessity of Good
Mineral Displays — Better
Court Facilities.
At the regular meeting of the Board of
Trade Monday evening there were present Messrs. Avery, Brown, Conn, Groffman, Murdock, McDougall, Matlow,
Wyllieand  Wright.
Communications were read from H. B.
Brown, Bulldog Mines, Hedley, re collection of ore samples for the Expo at
Vancouver on the 15th to 20th insts., and
at the Provincial Exhibition to be held
at New Westminster October 4th to 8th.
Mr. Browu stated that the Traffic Manager of the Great Northern Railway Co.
had made him a proposition to collect
such ores as might become tonnage producers. He will visit the best camps in
Princeton district and endeavor to procure large samples.
From L. K. Armstrong, 'Superintendent of the mineral department of the
Spokane Inserstate Fair, saying that he
would be very, much disappointed if advantage was not taken to advertise the
mineral resources of Princeton and district and thus secure the necessary capital to develop and produce. The Fair
will be held from October 3rd to 9th.
From Heaton's Agency, Toronto, asking for revision of the writeup of Princeton as it appeared in the Commercial
Handbook of Canada, 1910 edition.
The Boar_ passed a resolution urging
residents generally of the district, mine
owners and prospectors in particular, to
contribute mineral samples to be placed
on exhibition at Spokane, Vancouver
and New Westminster fairs. With the
combined efforts of everyone interested
in the progress of Princeton and district
it is hoped that a good, representative
display of ore will be forthcoming.
The Board recognized the importance
of a horse and cattle fair being held in
Princeton in the Fall and endorsed the
movement now being made for that purpose.
A reminder was tendered the Board in
regard to the action already taken for
the erection of Dominion public buildings and the necessity for continued vigilance in relation thereto, especially as
tbe next session of parliament now ap
proaches.
The question of holding couuty court
quarterly instead of half yearly us at
present was discussed by the Board and
the secretary instructed to write registrars in Okanagan for information.
Board adjourned.
CEMENT CAPITALISTS
Visit   o^^J_arge   Stockholders
'roperty   Located
Near Town.
Plant will Cost Quarter of Million
Initial Output 1000 Barrels
Per Diem.
L. W. Shatford,- M.P.P.; John George,
capitalist; J. A. Harvey, K.C., and L W.
Stone, financier, made up a quartette of
heavyweights arriving by Crockett's fast
auto line last Wednesday. Business of
importance necessitated a quick run, the
magnates covering the distance from
Vancouver in about 15 hours of actual
travelling time, coming via Spences
Bridge and Merritt. Ordinarily, this
route requires nearly two and a half days'
travel, so, it will be observed, the coast
is gradually drawing nearer to the Similkameen.
The party came to look over the property of the new formed company to
manufacture Portland cement in the
suburbs of Princeton. All the geutle-
men are interested financially in the proposed works which will involve an out-
lav of $250,000.
It is understood a sawmill will be put
into commission to supply the lumber for
erective purposes and for mining.
Certificate of Incorporation will shortly
issue, when further particulars of public
interest will be known. It is stated that
the initial plant to be erected will have
a capacity of 1000 barrels of cement per
day, to be doubled as the market demands. A spur will be built from the
main line of the Great Northern to the
works, abont a mile and a half.
The establishment of this large industry near Princeton means much for the!
town and district. The large payroll and
the cheaper cement for building purposes
are factors of great importance to a growing town such as Princeton is.
POPULAR AND SUCCESSFUL.
The member for Similkameen riding
during his short visit to this portion of
his constituency last week inspected the
public works being carried out by Supervisor Turner. Princeton and district
have no cause for complaint in the matter of road appropriations, Mr. Shatford
having lived up to his pledges and all
present and prospective improvements
will be carried out. His interest in the
welfare of this district is manifest by the
splendid appropriation of $2000 he obtained from the government for the hospital and his own generous donation although a non-resident. Mr. Shatford is
a director of the new bank of Vancouver
besides having large investments in various companies and private enterprises.
DALLYING WITH TIME
President's Procrastinating Policy Building Railway
to Coast.
Slow Methods have Characterized V.,
V. & E. Construction All
the Way.
As to the truth of the report that all
work would stop on the railway between
Princeton and Tulameen as soon as the
grade was completed 1st October, there
are no means of verifying. If it should
be true and the final completion of the
railway to the coast be delayed in consequence there will be a strenuous howl of
objection offered from one end of the
province to the other. It is easy for a
dilatory railway president to manufacture
spurious excuses for delay in construction, but he will find it hard to convince
the people of their genuinity Must the
Similkameen and the whole of southern
B.C, languish in the throes of business
depresssion, see its enterprises killed and
development delayed because some railroad autocrat wants to play a waiting
game ? Star warns President Hill that he
is playing with Greek fire and inviting
both opposition and competition by his
dallying policy.
Three coal companies and a large cement works are looking forward^hrough
their officials to the early completion of
the V.,V. & E. The market for their
products is largely dependent on this
road.
The Nicola Valley*News says that railway contractors on the Kettle Valley
line would put 1000 men to work if they
cjuld get them.
J. F. Floyd is at work in Coquihalla
Pass with a survey party trying to reduce
the V.,V. & E. grade.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
C. O. French was suddenly summoned
to Spokane today on a large mining deal.
'Davy' Crockett's anto line has adopted
the motto: 'Be sure you're right, then
go ahead.' He is usually right and goes
ahead some, as passengers testify who
travel to Merritt with him.
■ • Gordon Murdock has finished China

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:   25.
SCOPE: The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology-, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloySj
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 copcer mines.
The metallurgist needs the book fot
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 cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine 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 each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.

or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
