MINING VERY BRI.Hi
Voigt Camp Permanent, whole
Copper Mountain will
be Productive.
Leadville Camp Busy with Mining
and Preparations for Extensive
Development Work.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. are
producing large quantities of coal, their
output being limited only by a scarcity
of qualified coal miners. The same high
grade quality of sub-bituminons fuel that
marked earlier shipments is now being
mined from a 13-foot face of tne shiny
black diamonds. The coal mining indus
try never looked more favorable for this
company, indicated by the widening
market and increased orders.
The United Empire Co. expect to ship
about 200 tons of coal daily, and Manager Galliac is planning tipple improvements to meet the growing demauds.
B C Copper Co. at Voigt camp are
keeping up a continuous gait of activity
in the development of their immense
properties and another diamond drill will
be in operation on the east side of the
home camp. The company is concentrating their work on the Automatic,
Frisco and No. 1 claims, and with very
satisfactory results.
F. Weekes, consulting engineer for the
B. C Copper Co. at Voigt camp, is indisposed with lagrippe. He is an extremely
busy man and has kept up exploratory
work with marked energy and ability.
Some very promising strikes have been
made on the .da B. and Priucess Maud
within the past ten days, and the permanent camp buildings to serve these properties are just about completed.
C Saunders, Billy Fearless and Charley
Powell have the contract for supplying
wood fuel to the Voigt camp and are cutting on the Verde
A. H. Cannon, general merchant at
.Vnigtcamp is doing good busin ss and
ke.ps everything requisite for the men
Some idea of the supplies required for
food and clothing may be gatheied from
the fact that 30.000 pounds of these commodities were freighted to this camp la-t
month. Mr. Cannon is prospective deputy postmaster for Vo-gt Camp P.O.
The diamond drill contractor, W. C.
Mitchell, has increased his forces and is
working full capacity, three eight hour
shifts per day. The payroll of Voigt
camp is one of the props to business in
Princeton district which is much appreciated.
An interesting item in connection with
the development of Voigt camp is the
ust- of black diamond for drilling purposes, the cost of these small but effective
stones being in the neighborhood of $15,-
000 since operations began last summ
Andy Jensen came down from Treason
Mountain mine at Leadville last we;
and reports energetic operations. He
finds a scarcity of pack horses, so great
is the demand for them to get in supplies
and material for the companies intending
to work all winter. Snow to the depth
of about 18 inches has already fallen in
the higher altitudes. Winter may set in
earnestly at any time in these skyscrap-
ing regions and it is this contingency
which is causing a rush at the eleventh
hour.
Charles Seaman and Carl Bender, of
Greenwood, were the successful tenderers for the 600-foot tunnel to be driven
by the Treasure Mountain Co. They
will push the work until completed.
John Carlson, of Princeton, is foreman
in charge of the work on a 200-foot tunnel for the Indiana group. He will work
three shifts.
The David Weston mineral claim,
owned by Ed Tingley and J. G. Thynne
has been bonded to Spokane capitalists.
T. J. Corwin, J. D. MacDonald and others, of Seattle, are looking over placer
leases held by the former and associates
along the Tulameen and Similkameen
rivers. From tests made by drilling and
actual panning on bars, the pay dirt is,
rich in gold and platinum and offers aj
good field for mining on an extensive!
scale.
An agent of the Guggenheims, it is reported, has been quietly investigating the
possibilities of placer mining in this district. Within the past two years much
interest in placer mining . has been
awakened in Princeton district, owing to
the undoubted presence of gold and plat
inum in paying quantities on the bars
and benches of rivers and creeks.
A. C. Edwards, of Spokane, has taken
a force of men up to Leadville for the
purpose of developing the silver-lead
properties in which he is largely interested with other Spokane capitalists.
More buildings for the Treasure Monn
tain Co. are well under way, and include
a blacksmith shop,  magazine  and storehouse.    Nine men  and  a team are employed on these surface operations.
O. Jeldness has bonded the Lambert
mineral property and negotiations are
being made for others.
CONSERVATIVES,  ATTENTION.
The provincial conservative convention will be held at Revelstoke on the
24th and 25th inst. A delegate from
Princeton will be appointed at a meeting'
of the local Conservative Association to
be held Friday evening. Members of the"
association are invited to attend.
Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Thynne, the well
known and esteemed old time ranchers
of Otter Valley, are in town. Mr.'Thynne
reports bright prospects with two railways and the revival of mining.
THF1NDER ARRIVES
Pioneer of Great Transcontinental Motor Road is
Going Well.
Sawmill Bnrned and Small Quantity
of Lumber, Without Insurance
to Cover.
Thomas W. Wilby, who is making a
transcontinental auto trip from Halifax
to Vancouver, as pathfinder for the
Canadian highway, arrived in Prince
ton today. The pathfinder Left Halifax on August 27th with the/fntention of
crossing the continent inj_Tx weeks, and,
unless something unforeseen occurs, he
will reach Vancouver in the stipulated
time. He will \i^/e a good road from
Princeton to Nicola, which is becoming familiar to all local motorists. At
Spence's bridge he will likely load his
car and cross the Hope mountain on the
C.P.R., and the Fraser valley has a good
road for the final stretch.
SAWMILL   BURNED.
. On Sunday morning last, about 4 a.m.,
the mill owned by the Princeton Lumber
Co., situate about four miles southeast of
Princeton, on the Wolf creek road, was
burned to the ground. The fire is sup
po_ed to have been caused by smouldering remains from the previous day's
stoking, and was purely accidental and
unforeseen. The flame had made devastating progress before discovered at that
early hour, and all effort was directed to
prevention of spread to the lumber piles
and outbuildings. Some 15,000 feet of
lnmber^-however, were destroyed, th
total loss\of plant, etc.y^eing a matt
as yet of conjecture, sfnce it is presumed
the boilerfe and possibly some of the machinery may be/restored to use. The estimated vWu^rof the mill building and
machinery was $12,000. At times from
25 to 30 men were employed. In the
yard three-quarters of a million feet of
merchantable lumber are piled and ready
for delivery. There was no insurance,
the rate of 10 p c. being considered excessive " The precaution of an efficient
watch service, until recently, was maintained The burden of the loss will fall
on the manager, W. C. McDougall, who
has devoted much time and labor to the
development of this much needed industry.
^BASKET BALL CLUB.
ball, given by the Ladies' Basket
c__}> last- Friday evening was an im-
ense success and everybody was delighted with the manner in which the
arrangements were carried out. It augurs
well for the future of the club when at
the beginning of their club life they are
received with such marked public favor
aud encouragement. The club will accept and issne challenges to any neighboring clubs, and some good sport may
be expected this winter from matches.
The net proceeds of the ball was $67/
Music by the Princeton orchestra was excellent, to which some sixty couples
gracefully paid homage to Terpsichore in
the cadences of rythmic motion.
HAWAIIAN MUSICAL CO.
The performance of the Hawaiian Mil'
sical Co. on Monday night was well
patronized. In their native tongue and
dress the musicians proved quite interesting The guitar performances of the
leader were exceptionally fine and the
feature of the evening. The voices were
lacking in those essentials of interpreta
tion and pure rendition which soul stir
the listener, the monotone of the vocal
selections being commonplace and barren. The pantomimic acting ot the clown
was good, clever and catchy and produced irresistable bursts of laughter.
GOODBYE, SWEET SUMMER.
The weather turned cold and wet on
Monday, and on Tuesday morning a
a mantle of beautiful snow covered the
higher hills. Youngsters are counting
the days until they can coast and skate,
and the oldsters look forward to the
bright, cheery days of invigorating winter. The Similkameen is blessed with a
climate always inviting and anticipative
to all, no matter what the season of year
may be. Come, glorious winter, spotless
white and clean, bereft of 'crobe, bacilla,
'swat the fly,' and all the lurking dangers of poor mortal, material mind!
TWBDDLE-RICHTER.
The wedding of two well known and
^popular residents of the Siniilkameen was
solemnized at St. Andrews R. C. church,
Victoria, on the 24th ult., Haliburton
Tweddle to Mrs. Florence E. Richter,
widow of the late Frank Richtepfof Rere-
tneos. Mr. Tweddle is pronator of the
Grand Central hotel, Keremeos, and Mrs.
Tweddle is the owmej.of a large laud and
\ cattle estate. Star extends congratulations and bids the happy couple many
years of felicitous married life.
RAILWAY POINTS.
Guthrie & Co., contractors for the section of 42 miles on the V. V. & E. from
.the present -end of the track, about a
mile beyond Coalmont, will shortly have
a thousand men at work. It is their intention to have camp buildings and all
preliminary work well advanced before
hard weather comes. Sub-contractors are
at the front preparing for grading.
A locomotive crew and steani shovel,
outfit arrived Sunday and will' go to the
end of the track from whence a dash of
about three miles will be made for Tula?
meen, the base of supplies during construction.

rods in fair numbers, and the venison is
of fine quality, Grouse have been pep
pered at so much near town that they

would slaughter them to the last bird.

'Citizens of no mean city' is a
tjuoted phrase of ready application
by residents of Princeton. All point
with pride to the natural advantages
in and surrounding the town. Faith
in its great future has never lost
grip on the minds and purses of investors. But mere faith and plausible remarks, though self satisfying
tor some who lack that energizing
spirit which breeds action, will not
build a city or develop a country.
There must be continuous work and
publicity, crusades aiming to induce
capital and impress upon others tie
opportunities for sound and safe investment. Western cities are built
on the plain and convincing logic of
.facts presented to those iu search of
• homes or investment. In this 'show
.me' age it is not sufficient to make
profession of one's faith, it must be
backed by works, or, in common
phrase, the goods must be produced.
With all the endless mineral aud
other natural resources of which
Princeton is the center, it would be
suicidal to allow these to remain
non-productive for want of the energy necessary to make them known
to the world. Every device known
topublicity promoters is used by progressive towns and districts to attract attention. Exhibitions are,
beyond all question, the most convincing proof of natural wealth and
fertility. The great work done by
newspapers and pamphlets through
the medium of illustration and write-
up cannot be overestimated, but the
final touch to all these can be given
only by the actual production and
exhibition of the ore, the agricultural product of fruit, grain or vegetable, or whatsoever it may be.
Now, it is an undoubted fact that
in this district there are many good
mineral propositions unknown to
the public simply because no one
has ever taken pains or sufficient interest to place samples of the ore
where they would arrest the attention of expert, miner or investor.
Princeton requires today a firstclass
home exhibit of all the minerals
produced in this section. It would
be the best attraction for capitalist,
expert mining man, investor and
prospector   that could possibly   be
devised. Samples of not less than
fifty pounds from each lead, arranged, classified and labeled, so
that any person could know what
they were and their locations, should
be assembled and placed on permanent exhibition in some central and
conspicuous place. As an advertisement it would be unique and
most valuable. In Spokane, Vancouver and Victoria permanent exhibits of minerals found here should
be established as well as at home.
Every miner and prospector, mine
owner and resident of the district is
interested in this question and would
profit by its favorable -solution.
Who, among our public spirited
citizens will take this matter up and
make of it the success it deserved
The columns of Star are fiee to aid
in the establishment of these exhibits, it remains for residents to father
the project and help it along by
every means possible. What say
you, gentlemen?
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
With the completion of the V.,V.
& E. and the K..V. railways, Princeton will be on two main lines of
transportation, and one hundred
and fifty miles from seaports. Then
tne great automobile road runs
right through the town from end to
end of the province. Princeton is
on routes that afford beautiful scenery, fishing and hunting. Position
unexcelled and resources unlimited.
What more could mortals want?
The Duke of Connaught has won
his way among Canadians through
his democratic manner and that certain characteristic of his brother,
the late king, and revered mother,
by which they are all held in affectionate remembrance. Long live the
Duke of Connaueht!
It is said that another elixir of
life has been discovered, and our
days on this old earth may now be
prolonged indefinitely. This may
suit some people who never figure
on paying a bill until death makes
them 'cough up' by their affairs being settled through the public administrator. Elixir or no elixir,
living or dead, cash is king and is
the only 'system.'
The minister of justice for Canada has declared for home rule. Is
this a case of zeal outrunning discretion?
'I see by the Star that   does
not advertise. Perhaps he has
moved away. Could you recommend some one with whom I could
deal?' This is from a subscriber.
The intimation is obvious to advertise your business.
The editor of Eyeopener is about
to get an eye closed for playing the
jackal of slander with a legal light.
Why not use a horsewhip and save
costs of court? A slandering editor
generally 'gets whats coming to
him.'

SCIENCE AND INVENTION.
There was recently exhibited in Philadelphia the invention of Dr. Isadore Kit-
see, an invention which is a very creditable attempt to produce talking moving
pictures. Dr. Kitsee first attacked the
problem in 1905. Just how Dr. Kitsee
has succeeded in synchronizing aphono
graph with a film we are not as yet able
to reveal; but in a future number we hope
to publish an article in which the invention will be discussed in more or less detail.
It is gratifying to note that the TJ. S.
congress, before its final adjournment in
August, passed almost unanimously an
amendment to the post office appropriation bill, providing for three kinds of
parcels post, two of which are to have a
weight limit of eleven pounds, and one a
weight limit of four ounces, at different
rates, to become operative Jan. I, 1913.—

Replying to a communication from the
secretary of the board of harbor commis'
sioners, Los Angeles, Cal.,  Col. Goethels

j 30, 1913.—Scientific American.
At the Harvard college observatory the
most extensive astronomical labor ever
undertaken is now in progress. Up to
the preseut time, the largest and most
complete star catalogue in existence has
been the Draper.catalogue, which indexes
about 10,000 stars, with careful details
concerning their spectra. This catalogue
was compiled^ by Mrs. Williamina Paton
Fleming at Harvard before 1891. Since
that year, the increasing size of telescopes
and improvements in stellar photography
have so greatly increased the number of
stars shown upon ihe photographic
plates that an entirely new edition of the
Draper catalogue, enlarged and giving
the record o. each star to recent years
seemed imperative. Prof. Edward C.
Pickering, director of the Harvard ob
servatory,' has contemplated such au edi-
for many months, and in October, 1911,
the work was begun. Since Mrs. Flem
ing's death, in May, 1911, Miss Annie J
Cannon has been appointed curator of
the astronomical photographs succeeding
Mrs Fleming, and Miss Cannon is in
charge of the catalogue work. She is directing its progress so ably that what
several distinguished astronomers feared
they might not live to see accomplished
will probably be completed within five
years. She has organized the research
into divisions and sections, each of which
is conducted by one or other of her
women assistants. A vast collection of
stellar photographs, giving a complete
record of the heavens during many years,
is available at Harvard through the cooperation of its Cambridge and Arequipa
stations, so that abounding material is
furnished for the catalogue. The work
represents an infinite series of mathematical calculations, preliminary card
cataloguing, notations, charting, etc.,
which depends upon the utmost care in
studying and comparing photographic
plates, identifying stars, and determining
their degrees of brightness, qualities and
classes of spectrnm. For such work
women, says Prof. Pickering, have proved
their especial adaptability. About 5,000
stars each month are indexed on the
cards.—Scientific American.
