PROMISING
MINES  AND   MINING
C. M. Snowden, Sam Moore and A E.
McCoun have been at work on the Roany
placer claim and are sinking and drifting
on a tunnel. Values are expected at bedrock which is expected to be reached
soon. .-w^%
The United Empire Coal mine, East
Princeton, is making regular shipments
of coal to Nelson and Washington points.
Sam Spencer and wife moved to Hedlev
last week, where the former is employed
in the stamp mill of the Hedley Gold
Mining Co.
Jim Lacey was in town this week from
Hedley renewing old acquaintanceship
Wo:k is to be rushed on the big flume for
the Hedley Gold Mining Co. The flume
is three miles long, 7 x 8 in the clear, and
will require a lot of lumber in construction. The dam is in course of construction and three working shifts-wili be employed.
Mr. Cessford was brought down from
Coppermountain last Friday morning and
taken to the hospital with a broken ankle.
H'e slipped on. ice and in falling fractured
a bone. He is employed by the B. C.
Copper Co.
B. Barlow has taken the position of fire
boss at the United Empire coal mine.
Big Profits in Mining
There will be no extra dividend for the
Consolidated shareholders, although the
profits for the last fiscal year were practically a million dollars, or 18 per cent, on
the shares issued. At the meeting held
in Toronto on Tuesday morning, there
was a strong inclination on the pert of
some to place stock ou a permanent 10
per cent, basis, but the directors prefer to
adhere, for the present, to the more conservative policy of the past, and the usual
8 per cent, dividend payable quarterly,
will continue. President Matthews read
the annual report, showing the splendid
financial results which he emphasized
with the reminder thsjt it was only five
years ago that a bank overdraft of a million and a half existed. After allowing
$150,000 in round figures for development,
and wiping off $200,000 approximately
for depreciation, the profit of the Consolidated company for the past year was
equivalent to nearly 18 per cent upon the
shares issued-, which are-$5,800,000.
Similkameen Mineralogy
[Continued from last week.]
'In 1905 thei British Columbia Copper
Company took options on  ten or twelve
claims around f H       3 the Snn?et,
and work was carried on for about eleven
months. A diamond drill wasbroughtin
and much deep drilling done, but the results were not made known to the public'
"Hvdraulic mtniug.—In 1893 some prospecting ane surveying was done on the
i-ast side of the Similkameen river, above
Princeton, by parties associated with W.
C. McDougall, with a view to working
some of the benches stretching back from
the river by hydraulic methods. Gold
was found'in all the test pits, but the bed
rock was not sufficiently high above the
level of ihe stream to afford a good dump.
This, with the fact that a ditch, seven
miles in length, to carry water from the
Similkameen river on to the ground,
would only give a head of 116 feet, forced
the promoters to abandon their project.'
'In 1895 the Anglo-American Company
was formed y Capt. S. T. Scott, with the
object of working some ground situated
011 the west-side of Ihe Similkameen river,
just above the mouth of Whipsaw creek.
A ditch two miles in length brought
water from Whipsaw creek, and under a
head of 320 feet this was supplied to two
No. 5 Monitors at the foot of the bench
Sluicing was carried on for a period of
eight days, when it was found that the
bedrock here also was too low to afford
a dump for the tailings, and they were
constantly blocking the channel and
forcing the water back over the flat. The
expense of keeping the sluice boxes free
from the tailings, and the fact that bedrock was not reached in the pit, caused
the company to abandon the work and go
into liquidation.'
'The most successful attempt at hydraulicing was that undertaken by W. J.
Waterman in 1895 on some ground about
three miles south of Princeton. This
ground had formerly yielded from $5.00
to $10.00 to the hand, and had been
worked both by whites and Chinese.
Water was obtained from a spring and

VOLUME XIV
This issue of Star completes the
fourteenth year of its existence and
the fifty-second number tor 1913.
IDuring all these years *i\ has en-
1 .deavOred to chronicle correctly all
v*ae important events and truthfully
/et forth the natural inducements
for the investor and homeseeker.
Its one aim has been to build up
the town and district on their
merits. In its own humble way it
has striven for the rights of the
people generally and advocated
progress and reforms. Having
done these things to the best of its
poor ability Star asks for continued
support of its subscribers and advertisers. In this age no town
making any pretensions of progress
can afford to be without a newspaper and without a healthy patronage of subadifibers and advertisers,
its two chief sources of revenue, it
caunot live. By strict economy
and hard work Star -has weathered
years of depression and disjM»point-
ment. In that time two of its
neighbors have passed on to the
journalistic boneyard while it remains twinkling, dimly it may be
at times, yet always able to stand
1 off the sheriff and proverbial wolf,
^^-"Cossidijfc'ing the limited field, sparse
opulation and delayed railway
iirogress Star has much to be thank-
£ful for. The loyal support of advertisers has made the paper possi-
lile, without another journalistic
epitaph would have been written
long ere this. With increased patronage and expanding population
the paper will be found to keep well
in advance of all requirements as in
the past. No other town of like
size in Canada supports a newspaper, worthy of the name, having
over four hundred inches of space.
Many commendatory letters have
been received during all these years
and not a word of complaint, which
is something to feel encouraged
over. The foregoing is not written
in an egotistic vein but for the
^yrposeof inducing those who are
ot subscribers or advertisers to
ecome patrons and assure them
Aey are getting their money's
worth. The coming year, 1914,
looks brighter   than   any   of  the
fourteen nearly ended. Mining,
which is the backbone of the district, is now on an assured basis.
The elimination of doubt aud uncertainty as to mining makes the
prospect peculiarly encouraging.
To all a very happy and prosperous
new year. Shine on, O Star of
Similkameen !
NOTES AND COMMENTS
It is time that some binding restrictions aud limitations were put
upon those railway companies asking for further extension of time in
which to build their proposed road.
It is one of the farcical procedures
of the Dominion railway committee
to make 'cast iron' stipulations for
the companies and then at the end
of the term stated for building to
undo all they had previously legislated on. Railway companies
'come back' regularly for favors
from the railway committee and
they invariably get them. The
people of the Simlikameen have
been waiting for twenty years for
direct)railway connection with the
coast.. They have been promised,
fooled and cajoled until they are
heartily sick of the whole business.
Another, and another extension of
time has been asked for completion
of lines that could be built in a
small fraction of the time applied
for. Endless extensions of time,
ruinous delay, progress held up,
discontented people, business stagnant, hopes deferred, all the result
of insensate procrastination. Is
there no remedy ? The people
through their representatives, grant
bonuses and give concessions receiving in return disappointment
and broken agreements from the
railway companies. The people
are up against it hard enough fighting the physical difficulties which
all new countries present and it is
too much to bear the needless obstacles which the railways put in
the path of progress. Owing to the
picayune policy ofthe Kettle Valley
company Princeton coal is shut out
of the Okanagan district where
thousands of tons should have been
shipped this winter if railway construction had been carried on with
any business push. The Great
Northern is even a greater stumbling block to progress by its penny-
wise, pound foolish policy, in reducing its daily train to three a
week and making everybody lay
over at night at Oroville. If the
railway companies want tonnage
they must help to develop the
country not retard its growth by a
miserable. cheeseparing, skinny
policy. Railway" companies, like
individuals, cannot hope to make
profits always in a new country just
at the initial stages of development.
To whine at trifling expenses and
be niggardly and mean for the purpose of saving a few dollars at the
cost ol public spirited persons betrays a small, penurious soul. A
critical time has been reached in
the history of the Similkameen.
For railroad companies or individuals to cheesepare, halt and delay now
is to turn back the hands on the
clock of progress. No retrograde
policy now.    'Onward/ is the word.

stored in a reservoir immediately above
the bench to be worked.   A self-acting
gate to the reservoir was built with the
intention of using the' water as a bucking
hydraulic.     The   w^ter   was   stored   at
night behind an old beaver dam above
the reservoir, and during the day was al
lowed to run into the reservoir which  it
filled two or three times an hour.   The
gate acted automatically and let out a
a head of about 2,000 miners inches for
seven or eight minutes.    When the reservoir was empty the gate closed, and the
boulders, etc., in the pit were cleared up
and the ground got ready for the next run.
In   November,   1895.  a   partial clean up
gave results of from twenty-five to thirty-
five cents per cubic yard of ground moved
and  paid expenses.    The next year the
property was sold to the Vermillion Forks
Mining and development  Co.,  now the
Princeton   Coal   and   Land   Co.     More
water was brought from Stevenson creek
and  a  small   monitor  installed under, a
hundred foot head.   Two runs were made
in 1898 and the results obtained gave ten
to fifteen cents per cubic yard of ground
moved.    The amount water was not sufficient to move the heavy wash, and trial
surveys  were  run   to  bring more water
from  Nine-mile creek.    The amount of
workable ground, however, was not large
enough to warrant the expense of such a
ditch and the work was dropped.'
'The river bars at the tn'outh'of Friday
creek fifteen miles above Princton were
at one time found to be very 'rich.    Here
a trial pit was opened up.   A ditch one-
half mile in lengths\vas dug and a short
pipe line with a monitor installed.    Work
was carried on for a part of one season
and in the next spring when operations
were about to be commenced it was found
that the  whole  ditch  system   had been
washed away into the stream. The claims
were then abandoned and-have lain idle
ever since.'
'On the Tulameen river the earliest at
tempt at dypraulicing was made by a
group of Vancouver men who built a
flume and ditch from Eagle creek with
the intention of recovering the platinum
from a bench a short distance below this
point. The bench was small and was
soon washed out, with what results was
not ascertained.'
'On Granite creek, from which probably
more placer go^d was'recovered than'any
other   part of the Similkameen district,
some bench claims were opened no by
Capt.  Scott,  Robert  Stevenson,   W.   E.
Hogg and others.    A flume four miles in
length was laid and  work began on the
Swan  claim and at its upper end.'  The
gold  here  is  very coarse and   probably
much was recovered, but.the  company
shortly after went into; liquidation aud
the court is said to have cleaned up about
$900.00 from the sluice boxes.  Mr. Hogg
afterwards worked a small pit four miles
below the mouth of Granite creek  and
washed out the gravel from an old high
channel ofthe Tulameen river.    It is be
lieved to have paid for the season, but the
pit was filled  up with  wash from the
mountain side the next spring, and never
reopened.'
'Prilling.—Boring operations for lignite
began in 19OT, and have been prosecuted
by several parties interested in the development of the Princeton coal basin. The
Vermillion Forks Mining and Develop
ment Company is the largest .holder of
coal claims and it has sunk six bore holes
to test its properties. Two others have
been sunk by Blakemore and one by
Sharp ; and with the exception of Sharp's
bore hole all have been sunk in the valley
of the Sonth Similkameen river between
Princeton and Ashnola.' |pS»S

IN-COW-MAS-KET
From   Page   1.
Reft the solid rock in twain,—then
The deep lake pent in the mountains,.
Down—downward  dashed   to  join  the
stream,
Tore its way on through the valley
And formed the great Similk-ameen.
Madly dashing, like a wild horse,
That hath broke its curbing rein, it
Rushes swiftly, tearing downward,
Swells Columbia, joins the main.
How one time upon the mountain,
Where he had gone to hunt the deer,
He had lost his band of horses,
Amidst the mountain's summer snow.
For thongh warm and bright the weather
Without a warning rose a storm.
Suddenly across the mountains
There swept a gust of freezing wind,
Driving lead-grey clouds before it;
Then suddenly the snow came down
Burying the men and horses ;
Vainly did he try to save them.
He tried himself to break a road.
With his snow-shoes went before them,
Sinking—still sinking deeply down ;
Ever wallowing before them,
Weaken'd, starving, stumbling after,
On came his poor dejected band,
Ever getting weaker, fewer—
Until at last but one remained ;
He, a sturdy dark gray stallion.
The grandsire sang of Chippaco :
' Once upon the Mount Chippaco Jags
There liveda monster grim and dread,
Auful as that dreadful mountain
When thunder clouds enveil its head.
Awful was his devilish laughter
And fierce and scorniul was his ire,
When he found men on his mountain
Where he hides 'midst clouds and fire.
Women had he taken captive
And kept them on that mountain lone ;
Men he mocked with fiendish laughter
Who sought to take the women home.'
Sem-min-at-coe smiling listened
To all the wondrous tales he told.
In the lodge of In-cow mas-ket
Lived his young wife little Chin-chin.  '
She was famous for her beauty,
For her.lithe and slender figure,
And for her large and lustrous eyes.
In cow-mas-ket gave her father
Many norses, mauy kine, all
For this beauteous dark-eyed maiden ;
But she loved not In-cow-mas-ket,
She cherished not his old grandsire,
Thought of nothing but her beauty,
Cared for nothing but her pleasure.
Mounted on her fiery broncho
See, see her dashing o'er the hills,
Driving in her herds of cattle,
And laughing—jesting with the boys.
Snatching at a long 'reata,
She swings it lightly o'er her head ;
Lassoes, catches, overthrows one,
Laughing she gives her horse his head ;
Shouts as on he swiftly gallops,
She makes him yet more madly run ;
What cares she for Sem-minat-coe,
Now toiling, working hard at home'?
What cares she if Sem-min-at-coe
Does the work she has left undone ?
Sem-min-at-coe tans the buckskins,
Gets the wood and gets the water,

When the wmter snows were melting
From the forested the mountain
From the hills and from the valley
And when the streams began to rise,
In-cow-mas-ket hunted beaver ;
Set his traps in swampy meadows
He set them by the beaver dams
Stretched their skins on bended willows,
Kept their tails for little Chin-chin
When the whiter snow was melted
By the south wind's balmy breath, then
In cow mas-ket hunted grizzly'
Just waking from their winter sleep •
Near thei: dwelling place he found them
Close to the mountain's rocky caves'
^fo-eow-flws-ket slew the grizzly	
He took the meat, he took the skin
Saved the paws for dainty Chin-chin.
In-cow-mas-ket hunted red deer
In the mountains, in the valleys •
Chin-chin gaily, rode beside him ' -
With.his long musket oaher knee
Cheer-d him with her lively prattle.
In a hollow ofthe mountain
Where feeding, sheltered from the sun,
They would find large herds of red deer
Pretty Chin-chin held the horses
While In-cow-mas-ket shot the deer
When at eve returning homeward,
With their weary horses laden

Like'her mother Sem-min-at-coe   '
She was gentle, she was kind; thus
All who knew her ever loved her
For her goodness and her beauty.
Fair, fair was In-cow-mas-ket's child
And her lovely flowing tresses
Fell about her like a garment,
And her dark eyes beamed with beaut3
Iu the long, long days of summer,
When the warm-rays of the sun had
