VALUABLE ORE.

m
Copper Mountain Again Shows
Splendid Sample.
If any mining man or prospector had
any preconceived notion that high grade
copper-gold ore could be found only in
far-off Spain, Mexico, or Butte, he may
have his delusion exposed by seeing the
latest strike on No. 4, Copper Mountain,
development work on which has now
reached a shaft depth of 70 feet and the
work advancing steadily with the force
emplo3-ed by E. F. Voigt.
No. 4 is located west of Voigt's Camp,
toward the Mountain proper and within
the zone which has now added fresh
fame to the widely known Copper Mountain, with its many hundreds of mineral
claims. The sample shown is from a lead
which outcrops 180 feet wide and runs 85
per cent copper, and gold, $73. The
ore consists of chalcopyrites and copper
glance the formation being lime.
It is fully believed that as in the case
of ore of this cla",s in other camps and
particularly at Butte, depth will show a
greater purity of glance deposit. Whatever conditions are met with in developing, thus far the ore has increased in
value as depth was obtained.
For exhibition purposes this ore is so
subject to oxydization that it cannot be
displayed and preserved in all its native
prettiness and form. An effort, will,
however, be made to have a sample on
view at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle. In the reward which
Mr. Voigt seem* now about to annex, it
has come by patient and enduring struggle.    May he long enjoy it.
BASEBALL SEASON ON.
Princeton ball players have had a little warming up on the Diamond, and
feel confident that they, can win the
Similkameen Valley Championship this
season if they are giv,en any kind of support from the people that benefit from
these public holiday exhibitions.
The boys should appear in uniforms,
like other teams in the valley, and their
base ball equipment thould be replenished.
Miss Wells, who has been visiting with
her sister, Mrs. A.J. Marlow, for several
months past returned to her home in
Kamloops last week.
Mrs. Peter Swanson left for the coast
by the Nicola stage last Thursday, to
visit relatives and friends for a few week.
The Hotel Tulameen has received a
new coat of paint which adds greatly to
its appearance.
Curly Poterson, of Camp No. 6, ipent a
few days in town visiting with friends,
last week.
Rev. A. M. Miller, chairmaa of the
Methodist Okanagan mission field, was

Pyman. He is much impressed with the
Leauty and advantages of Princetoa.
MEMBER ON A TOUR
Inquires Into Needs of* Localities with View to Making
Road Improvements.
Boad from Main Trunk Highway is
to be Graded and Shaded for
Heavy Traffic.
Last week L. W. Shatford, M.P.P.,
made an official tour of this end of his
constituency, being accompanied by Road
Superintendent Deardoff. The member
stated that his visit was for the purpose
of personally studying the wants of the
various localities, upon which he would
irame estimates for roads or other improvements. This preliminary trip will
be followed shortly by another in which
the actual works will be aadertaken and
appropriations used.
Mr. Shatford was successful in obtaining the respectable sum of $60,000 from
the House for Similkameen electoral district. With this money fairly apportioned Princeton and adjoining sections
will not have cause to complain. Urgent
new roads and important repairs are
needed, some of which the member has
definitely stated he will kave done. If
one considers the large following which
he has here and his repeated majorities
at the polls it is a matter of some wonder
that so little has Oeen done where so
much remains to be done in public improvements. ' Gratitude tor mercies received ' should be always acknowledged
and the representative who fails in this
duty will soon lose the confidence of his
supporters.
In a week or so work it expected to
begin on the road leading through town
and which may be considered a part of
the Copper Mountain road leading from
the main trunk road at the Tulameen
bridge. This work has been a long time
urgeclat public meetings and in the Dress.
Its proper completion will redound to
the credit of all concerned and remove
an outstanding grievance.
IMMIGBANTS COMING.
W. D. Scott, superintendent of immi
gration, has beenabvised by W. J. White,
inspector of United States agencies, who
is now in Spokane, that the prospects for
immigiation from the Pacifie coast states
to Canada are excellent. He says that
the Canadian immigration office at Spokane is now crowded with land seekers
and their families who are anxious to get
land in Canada. For the first three
months of this year, 1260 left for Canada,
an increase of 50 per cent over the same
period of 1908. There has been an increase of over 10 per cent in the amount
of settlers'effects shipped into the dominion.
THE COPPER MARKET
Fluctuating Prices are Expected Until Demand is
Strengthened.
Another Copper Famine Predicted in
Next Two Years—Surplus
Copper Going.
A dispatch from Boston says that the
United Metals Selling company during
February sold between 100,000,000 and
120,000,000 pounds of copper.
Copper Situation Will Grow Better.
- The bulk of the deliveries will probably be made before Sune 1st. When the
Copper Producers' association makes
public its statement covering the current
month it should show a big reduction in
stocks in producers' hands.
. It is stated that contracts entered into
for the account of American manufacturers greatly exceed general estimates. An
officialcof one of the agencies handling
over 100,000,000 pounds of copper a year
says that of his company's recent heavy
sales fnlly one half were for home consumption.
There continues a fair demand Lake
and casting copper; the former grade is
obtainable at 13^ cents a pound. The
The producers of Lake have much of
their production taken each year taicen
by regular customers who, although not
running on full time, are taking goodly
quantities each month.
Copper Buying Seems to be Srtonger
Concerning   copper   production    and
consumption  the Wall Street Summary
says:
The selling agent oi the largest copper
producing interest state that most of the
western and southwestern producers are
well sold up for prompts and are fairly
well engaged for futures.
The largest Arizona and Mexico copper
mining interests report that their sales
within a few days have been well up to
the tonnages disposed of in the season
that marked the earlier stages of the last
boom. One of the southwestern producers has unfilled Oiders for 26,000,000
pounds of copper to be shipped within a
month. Nearly all the producers and
consumers believe that prices for electrolytic will waver for a few weeks between
12% and 13X cents a pound.
Says Copper Situation is not so Bad.
Horace J. Stevens, author of Copper
Handbook, takes an optimistic view of
the copper situation, although he admits
there is no prospect of immediate relief.
Mr. Stevens recently said:
"In my judgment, the situarion is not
so black as many imagine. There is a
considerable accumulation of uncon-
sumed copper in this country and abroad,.
but return to normal business conditions
in the United States will absorb this surplus quite rapidly, and all things considered, I think the cut in price was the
part of wisdom, as it will be the better
for the metal market to pass into actual
use, at reduced prices rather, than to pile
up furthur.
" From my reading of the statistics of
production and consumption, I am led to
anticipate another copper famine—or
what will be called such—probably with-,
in the next two years, as the world's increase in output has been much below
normal for three vears past. This will
mean another great big boom, followed
by another smash. It is the same old
story over and over again, world with-.
out end."
GBANITE CREEK NEWS.
Gold Dredge to be Beplaced by One
of Greater Capacity.
.(From Our Special Correspondent.}
Roy Cannon, who worked in Granite
Creek last summer for awhile, came in
the first of last week and took the greater
part of the dredger outfit. The dredge is
to be shipped to the northern part of
Vancouver island for immediate use. Mr.
Cannon stBted that the dredge was too
light for the work here and that a larger
one would replace it in the near future.
We earnestly hope so.
J. W. McCann has got back from Spokane and intends to go up Newton creek
in a few days to continue work. He has
been suffering from a severe' attack of la
grippe but is very much improved.
C. Debarro and J. Amberty have
started active work up the creek where
they are driving a tunnel.
Word comes from Otter Flat that Mr.
Henderson, of the Otter Flat hotel, is
much improved in health. His son Austin, leaves the first of the week to take a
position in a Vancouver bank.' A stag
dance was held at theGranite creek hotle,
on Tuesday, April 6th, among those
present being R. Cannon, Seattle, W.
Garrison, Princeton; B. S. Wilson, Frank
Sophie, Keremeas; T. Murphy, D. Ross,
P. Russel and R. R. Lawrence. L. Mar-
cotte the geniel host, did the honors.
p The leaves are coming out on the trees
at Welldo and tke soup spring is merrily
bubbling.
The Princeton milk dairy, Gordon
Murdoch, proprietor, has installed a
swift delivery for their customers, the
milk buggy supplanting the old style
hand method. It is another evidence of
the revolutions of the wheels of progress iu town.
The Ladies Aid will meet at the home
of Mrs. A. J. Marlow.
Max Wilso* and wife arrived from
Chilliwack last week and will reside here.
A number of strangers have arrived in

NOTES AND'COMMENTS.
Luther Burbanlr,'"*Th'g-,plant wizard, has now,- sjjt^stinct varieties
of plums with which_he4s experimenting, any one. of them, he believes, superior'to any^now known
sto the world. Wjlt'he be good
•enough to now turti-'J his attention
to political plufns;' Hy which every
constituency, or part of it, will receive its just apportionment of
money withojirhaving to barter its
independence?' A plum for Prince
ton in the shape of a telephone exchange would be very acceptable
and proper.
"Ashcroft, the Gateway to Northern Britisb O&lumbiSt" is the title
of a handsomely illustrated booklet
published by the Ashcroft Print
Co. It is brimful of valuable information concerning the resources
of Ashcroft district, as well as Cariboo, Quesnel, Fort George, Buckley and Nechaco, the famous interior districts to the north, to which
Ashcroft is the gateway.
At least one act of real statesmanship will live in our memories
and that is the manifest earnestness of the member for Similkameen riding to leave something in
return for the taxpayer's good
money andjJ4v/hlch he proposes shall
be the improvement of the road between the two rivers from bridge to
bridge. Many a footsore and eyesore person and the tugging, stumbling horse, will welcome the member's proposition.
Have- we seen the last .of Joe
Martin in .his recent departure for
England ? A political exile from
his country,' sour and' disappointed.
Not a tear drop or a sifeh" follows
him. Well, that is the reward of
a man who will not try to tnaJsje
friends. Good-bye, Joe. With all
your faults, the Star extends best
wishes.
Farmers' Institutes are common
in every part of the province where
agriculture is an industry. There
are some forty farmers in Princeton
district, which number is required
to form an institute. A letter to J
R.' M. Palmer, Deputy Min. Ag.,'
Victoria, will bring all information.!

Name of Person.
Athletic grounds are a necessity
in every large or small community,
for, it is physical recreation and
healthy amusement which lay the
foundation for a sound mind. The
young and growing bodies of boys
and girls are never so healthy as
when in sport their energies are
allowed vigorous play. Then the
adults must also have athletic enjoyment, for !Iall work and no play
would produce a lot of dullards.
So the evidence is overwhelming
ot the providing of such ground
or field where sport' may be held.
Princeton is sadly deficient in these
requirements'.' Some steps should
be taken to secure good grounds
before some of the available fiats
or benches are in the hands of the
speculator. An Athletic Association would give form and purpose
to any project for the encouragement of athleticism and this is one
