MINING REPORT FOR
PROVINCE IS MOST
ii-ENCOURAGING-IS
MI1.ES  AND  MINING
The report ofthe provincial department
of mines for the year ending December
31, 1912, shows that the mineral production of the province for last year far sur
pass.d that of all previous years, having
reached the great sum of $32,440,000 in
value, an increase of nearly $9,000,000
over the preceeding year and more than
$6,000,000 over 1910, which had previously been the banner year.
Details for the past three years are-
Placer gold, 1910, $540,000; 1911, $462,
000; 1912, $555,000. The placer gold is
produced almost exclusively in Atlin and
Cariboo, the former having yielded $290,
000 and the latter $238,000 last year.
Lode gold,   1910 $5,533,380;   1911, $4.
725.513; 1912, $5,322,442. Oi the product
of 1912 Rossland is credited with $2/729,
949, the Boundary with $2,-67,229 and
Nelson with $361,994. About 75 per
cent, of this gold is obtained from the
smelting and copper ores; of the remainder $775,000 was produced by the Nickle
Plate mine at Hedley from free milling
quartz, which yielded on an average ab
out $11 per ton.
Silver: 1910, $1,245,380; 1911, $958,293
1912, $1,810,045. Most of this silver is
produced from the lead bearing ores, the
Slocan district having produced 61 per
cent, and the Fort Steele mining division
12 per cent of the yield of 1912, the remainder being the silver-lead lead mines
of Nelson and Lardeau mining division
and from the copper ores of Rossland,
Boundary and coast districts.
Lead, 1910, $1,245,016; 1911, $1,069,
521; 1912, $1,805,657. Fort Steele led off
in 1912 in the production of this metal
with 40.46 per cent., Slocan following
with 37.75, Ainsworth with jo 83 per
cent, the remainder being furnished by
other localities, including Nelson and
Lardeau mining divisions and the new
mines being opened up in the north.
Copper: 1910, $4,871,512; 1911 $4,571,
644; 1912,$8,405,627. The value of copper is got at by taking the average price
for the year. The Boundary produced
64.70 per cent, of the yield of 1912, the
Coast and Cassiar district 30.16 and Ros-
land 5.03 per cent.
Zinc; 1910, $192,473; 1911, $129,092;
1912. 15.316,139. The mineralogist says:
'The various processes designed to separate the values of lead-zinc ores of the
Slocan which have within the past few
years been experimented with have not
as yet reached a stage of commercial application.'
1 Coal: 1910, $9,800,161; 1911, $7,675,717
1912, $9,200 814. The tonnage of marketable coal mined in 1912 was 2,628,804
tons in addition to which 396,905 tons
were made into coke yielding 264,333
tons valued at $i.'585%998. This brings
the total value of the output of the collieries of the province for the year $10,
786,812. The output of coal by districts
in 1912 was as follows, Vancouver Island,
1,558,240 tons; Nicola and Princeton
206,257 tons; East Kootenay 1,261,212.
Gold Dredging Alluvials
The placer fields  of British Columbia
have yielded gold to the value of $72,000,
000 and many have been worked
only by the crude methods of the iudiv-
idual placer miner; so that there would
appear to be rich rewards awaiting the
handling of old placers by such highly
developed' methods as dredging. Both
the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers
and many creeks offer a splendid field
for placer gold mining.
R. A. Lambert has a flume at work on
Granite Creek and expects to be washing
gold in'a-few days. Good repoits are expected from this camp as this part of the
creek has never been worked.
1 J. F. Knudson and H. B.Mausette have
located claims containing Iceland spai
on the Ashnola river. This mineral is a
tiansparent, crystalline calcite and gets
its name from Iceland where is is found
in large crystals.
Leadville is active with everyone dofhg
assesment work on individual claims. A
4000 foot contract has been let on the Iy-
anhoe. Good showings are made in the
Ranger basin, four miles from the mouth]
of Sutter creek. i?i|§fi

FORMATION SPECIMENS
Editor Star.—Sir, Will you inform
yoAr readers that we will be glad to receive specimens of the varied formations
as well as the ores as we have a scheme
of grouping each section by itself and
have it show its local conditions. I have
made a reserve for Princeton of space,
and trust I can fill it. Let us all boost
for the Similkameen and get a bumper
exhibit. -H. B. BROWN

PERSONAL
Mr. and Mrs. S. Knill, of E. Princeton,
have gone to Vancouver for the benefit of
the latter's health and may take a sea
voyage to the old country before returning. Mr. Knill is an investor in the district and is pleased with the great possib
ilities of the country. He will increase
his investments before direct railway
connection is completed with the coast.
F. M. Gillespie, postmaster at Hedley,
was in town Saturday going on to meet
his family at Ninemile for a week-end
stay. ._%&
Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Oliver, of Owen
Sound, Ont., are visiting  Mr.   and   Mrs.
Kirkpatrick, the latter being a sister of
Mrs. Oliver. Mr. Oliver is a large contractor and quarry owner doing extensive business in the larger cities and is on
a pleasure and vacation trip. He appreciates the great natural resources of
this section and is a probable investor.
Eandmaster Wirt of Oroville is in town
and will probably become a resident. He

orchestral performances and may be the
leader of Princeton band.
J. A. Osborne, late superintendent of
construction at the cement works leaves
with his family tomorrow for the east.
THE CEMENT WORKS
The B. C. Portland Cement Co. is a
living organization in E Princeton now
manufacturing a first class article of cement. Although in the initial stage of
production and having the usual minor
difficulties and breakages of new machinery these will be overcome and the fact
demonstrated that a. great permanent industry is established ou a sure basis.
A. A. Robertson, superintendent, has
been very busy since starting up systematizing the various departments and
arranging details for successful management. He has had a long practical experience in cement factories at Newcastle,
Eng., and at Montreal and Calgary. The
information thus obtained will be
brought into full and matured use at the
E. Princeton works.
The quality of the cement so far produced has withstood the most severe tests
of strength and solidity and the superintendent backs it with his own guarantee
that it is as good as the best produced ou
this continent. This speaks well for the
raw materials, all of which, except the
gypsum which comes from the beds at
Welldo, are found at E. Princeton. No
fear of competition can at all be entertained for the Elk brand of cement nov.
ready for use. The first carload of cement was shipped to Nelson on Thursday. .-S.vK;
IMPROVING ELECTRIC LIGHT.
What is said to be the most important
discovery in electric lighting since Mr.
Edison developed the incandescent lamp,
over thirty years ago, is reported from the
laboratories ofthe Genera' Electric Company of the United States. It has been
found that a lamp filament made of tungsten will produce light with an, expenditure of half the energy now required if
the globe in which it is enclosed is filled
with an inert gas such as nitrogen at a
pressure about that of the surrounding atmosphere. The discovery ofthe remarkable powers of tungsten for the production of electric light with a relatively
small expenditure of energy has already
greatly reduced the cost of electric lighting. It is estimated that the new lamp
will cut the consumption of current to
one half watt per candle power.

$8 to $8.25 for the Wyotping product, the
difference in freight rates making the
latter coal higher. There is said to be
about $1 difierence in the cost of slack
and mine run, and there is 25 cents more
duty on lump coal for family use from
Cana"da than on slack Or steam. Prices
at which steam coal is sold to busiu.ss
blocks are: For mine run, $5.25, or $5.75
to $6.25 delivered. This coal costst at
the mine in the Crow's Nest district:
Slack, $2; mine run, $2.25 to $2.35, and
lump $3 to $3.25 a ton. The last retails
at $8.75 to $9 25 a ton f. o. b. Spokane.
The freight rate on coal from the Crow's
Nest Pass District ranges from $2.15 to
$2 25 a ton, and the duty is 15 cents on
slack aud 40 cents on mine run and
lump. On this basis the lump coal costs
from $5 65 to $5.80 laid down in Spokane
and as it is claimed that this must be
screened, and the screenings sold at a
low rate, this loss is estimated at 25 cents
a ton. Taking the -benefit of this, the
highest cost of Canadian coal is $6 05 a
ton.

geologists and mining engineers of the
whole civilized world. The session of
the Congress will be held in Toronto on
August 7 to 14 inclusive, during which
papers of great general geological interest will be read and discussed. The most
attractive feature, however, is the opportunity that will be afforded to visit the
leading mining districts and points of
greatest geological interest in the country. To this end a great number of excursions have been arranged for, and a
series of guide books have been prepared
by the Geological Survey. Chas. Cam-
sell will conduct a party through the
Similkameen and Nicola districts.
•The richest strike since the Klondike'
is tha sentiment of those who have visited the new placer diggings in the Sush-
anna river. Pans running from 75 c. to
$5, and two men" taking out $2500 a day
by crude methods are reported. Hundreds are rushing to the scene from all
parts of the territory No doubt any
longer exists as to the authenticity of the
strike. Pay has also been found on the
Bonanza, Eldorado and other tributaries
of the Sushanna, pans ranging from 25c.
upward being common. The diggings
are shallow bedrock, lying but four to
five feet from the surface. The hills are
rolling and well worn, while the country offers an extensive area of promising
ground.
Notwithstanding the experiences which
some Canadians have been having in
western coal securities, the coal land of
the west continues to change hands.
Last week the Financial News bureau announced the purchase of a large section
by German interests, and now the purchase is announced of a large section of
80,000 acres, near Canmore, the price of
which is stated to be $2,000,000. This
syndicate, which is an English one, intends to build a branch line to Calgary
and hopes to be able to deliver coal this
fall.
There are few men as well informed as
to general business conditions, particularly in regard to the copper industry, as
Senator W A. Clark. He says that the
supply of copper on hand at the present
time is but normal, and that if he were
not well satisfied with the market conditions he would not be spending $3,000,
000 in the erection of a new smelter, and
making various ahd extensive improvements about the Uuited Verde. Arizona.
Several profess.ors are now en route for
Willow Bunch, in Sask., for the purpose
of examining the prehistoric skeleton ot
a man that was unearthed a few weeks
ago by a farmer.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Acting on the golden rule to 'love thy
neighbor a thyself will give women the
same privileges and rights as men—will
give them votes and voice in legislation.
Since woman isas much human as man
no exclusive rights belong to either—
votes for women is a sane and logical proposition..
Be sure you are right then go ahead—
the furrow may be long and lonely but if
straight all is well.
Divine mind controls the universe, is
all and there is no other power. What a
puny tiling mortal man is.
The reign of peace and contentment
can only be established by peaceful and
happy thoughts. Every person can contribute to world wide peace by being
at peace within—the kingdom of peace
is, within you.
Sickly thoughts produce a sickly body
—as a man thinks so is he.
Gold is good in its place, but brave and
patriotic men are better than all the gold.
—Abraham Lincoln.
The heathen bows down to wood and
stone; the highly civilized bow to fashion
and the cravings of sensuality. Which is
the better?
Luxuries are for the rich. The senseless poor ape mannerisms and affect
wealth though debt stares at them in
the monthly message. Pride and poverty
are fit companions.
Some day everyone will do unto his
neighbor as the golden rule urges, then
we will see how much happiness we have
missed
Impossible to think evil or do wrong
without the law of compensation repaying to a split hairbreadth. That is justice.

A Scotsman who had worked for many
years on the railroads among the Highlands of Scotland went to the United
States in his later years and settled on a

of the far west.
Soon after his arrival there was a pro-

The Scotsman was applied to as a man of
experience in such matters.
•Hoot, mon,' he said to the spokesman
of the'delegation, 'ye canna build a railwav across this country.'
