Diamonds, platinum and gold in Princeton district.
The emptiest life is that which knows not God.
Princeton district belongs to that best and last west which is attracting; the attention of the world—Unlimited mineral resources, ideal
climate and home of big game, fish and fowl—Best route to Steamboat mining camp; prospector's paradise—Cement works building.

WEALTH OF MINERAL
Geologist Describes Resources
of DistrictMid Xi__ces   .
i .Contain Rich  Platinum and
Gold Deposits—Silver and
Lead Ores.
From tbe Journal of the_0!iy______ia___t_. -
ing Instituterthe- subioined extracts have
been made from data compiled bv Chas.
Camsell, Dominion geologist, of the iuin-
' etal resources of this district and published by the permission of the Director
of the Geological Survey of Canada :
Previous Platinum Product. -*■
Gold is the principal valuable metal of
the placers', but in a few localities some
n .tix___copj_er and.silver have been found
The Tulameen _istrr__r*_ftrwever, conjguis
placers which hold much platinum in
association with the gold. The resources
are not yet exhausted. The platinum
output of the Tulameen district to date
has been variously estimated at from
11,ooo to 20,000' ounces. Within recent
years there has been a gradual decrease
in yield; but a revival of activitj^may be
expected cs a result of improved com
munication. facilities_ following railway
[building. The productive area covers
| abont. 18 miles of the Tulameen river between . Champion Creek and Qrjgjtf
Creek, and includes most of the tributaries of the Tulameen between these
two points
Free milling gold ores have been found
and to some extent, have been worked at
Granite Creek in the Tulameen district,
at Fairview, near Osoyoos Lake, at Roche
river and at the Golden Zone camp, near
the head of Twentyrnile Creek.
Eich Veins of Gold.
On the eastern side of Granite Creek
and on the divide, between this and Nire
UMile Creek, some.very rich veins of gold
jlbearing quartz cut the green schists of
the Nicola series. The>:veins are, how
ever, narrow and the gold is not evenly
distributed. Veins *jpf this character are
partly at least the source of the rich
placers of^C_Panjt^G_ee_y^*
"Near the mouth of Roche river, a
branch of the Similkameen, south of
Princeton, a few small gold bearing
quartz veins cut chlorite and hornblende
schists. These veins are only a few
inches wide, and carry pyrite, chalcopy-
rite and tetrahedrite as the ore minerals.
Gold tullerides are also stated to be
fjund in these veins. The region is at
present accessible only by pack trail, but
in spite of chis a small shipment of ore
was made a few years ago, and is stated
to have given excellent returns in
golJ.
jjj.    Silver and Lead Ore.
Although there are a number of localities in this district in which rich silver
ores and lower grade silver-lead ores!
have beerj found, they- have not been exploited. The most important of these
localities are Summit Camp on the head
waters of the Tulameen River; Silver
Creek, near Hope; Skagit River and
Stump Lake. The deposits, however,
have not been developed on account of
the present lack of -Transportation facilities. Native silver has also been.found at
several points in the district.
A discovery of silver bearing galena
is reported to have been, made recently
on Whipsaw Creek about 25 miles from
Princeton. Some importance is attachtd
to the discovery; but no technical, examination df it has yet been made.
Copper ores are the most abundant and
'(Widespread of all the meta lie ores in tl.e
'.district. Their geological distribution
fcovers virtually every known formation
of rocks. -At Copper Mountain ores are
found occurring,pn the contact of monzonite with limestones. The ores appear
in the limestone as ill defined bodies
near the contact of the monzonite, or else
in fissures traversing both the limestone
and the monzonite.

THE HOSPITAL CONCERT.
Everyone in any manner   connected
with the concert given under the aegis of
the  Ladies' Hospiial  Auxiliary  last Fri
day night has reason to be gratified ore
the success achieved both from a financia
and an  entertainment  viewpoint.    Th
gross receipts  were   $61    aud   the   net
amount for    hospital aid $57.25.     The
Auxiliary has again proven its great usefulness and influence for good in the philanthropic work in  which it is so nobly
engaged. '
Of the concert it may be said, without
fear of reasonable contradiction, that it
was the best yet heard in Princeton. The
avoidance of tbe classic in music ; the
spontaneous and sometimes exuberant
applause, the cause and the low prices,
50c, 25c, all combined to make the entertainment delightful from the first to
the last number.
, Where all did so well and encores so
profuse yet merited it would be invidious
to criticize or compare. If Star may be
permitted to specialize somewhat mention may be made of Miss Lumsden who
sang in clear and sweet voice, winning
the audience with perfect control of voice
and self and proving fcer to be a finished
vocalist.   Mrs. Howse in  two character
readings immensely pleased everybody
and is destined to be a favorite with au-
diences here. Miss Coulthard and Mr.
Gregory with mandolin and guitar and
little Miss Cunningham were accorded
deafening encores and Mi*. Wright-captivated the j audience with comic songs.
Mr. Thomas in a splendid baritone and

V.V., & E. SHOULD BE BUILT.
Ernest. Waterman, of Princeton, who
has been at the Hotel Vancouver the past
week, brings the information that the
Provincial government has made an appropriation for the construction of a
pack trail from the town of Princeton, to:
Steamboat Mojwftain Camp, a distance of
55 miles. [Work on, the trail has commenced. This will obviate a roundabont
journey to Hope Mountain. This new
route will'be of immense" service to the
parties living in the Kootenays and'
Similkameen districts.    ^ -mif
The^imilkameen district is enjoying
quite a boom owing to the activity in the'
■coal fields. The output at Princeton is
in the- neighborhood "of 100 tons daily,
and this is to be increased in the near
future to 500 tons Gold is another factor
in the make-up of the district. A syndicate which has beenjtesting the ground
along the Similkameen and Tulameen
rivers reports very favorably. Bars in the
river are credited with an average of
from 75 cents to $1.00 gold per cubic
yard, a very good average, considering
that gravel in California paying five cents
per cubic yard is worked at a profit.
In speaking of the lack of direct railway communication between the Similkameen district and Vancouver, Mr.
Waterman states that a great deal of trade.
is diverted to the United States.—Province.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Truly paternal legislation is that
by which the Dominion parliament
has made it possible for every person to provide against want in old
age. Taking one phase alone of
the dire effects of poverty and the
despondency it creates, a large proportion of the suicides, no doubt,
have their origin in the want which
stares some poor middle-aged people in the face. Tbe alleviation of
distress and want is a matter which
has haunted governments in all
countries and our own is not a whit
behind in discovering | means that
I will, if taken advantage of, reduce
the probabilities of want and penury
to the least common multiple of a
chance or accident. In the new
westland, particularly in the Similkameen, there are no evidences of
want and every person is well provided for out of the bounties of
nature. But it is the part of wisdom to provide for the rainy day,
although it may never come. By
the payment of $t, 50c. or 25c. per
week into the Canadian Government Annuities, Ottawa, provision
is made for a comforting income in
old days of the annuitant. For all
particulars apply to S. T. Bastedo,
Government Superintendent, Ottawa, to whom letters go free of postage. '■     ■	
Star has no apology to offer for
again referring to tbe splendid
location offered here for a mining
school. With almost every kind
of mineral found hereabouts and
coal, lode and placer mining, and
the manufacture of cement soon to
be accomplished, there is a wide
field for research and prospecting
presented to the student. The location of a mining school here would
afford an unrivalled field for practical demonstration among the various ores and placers, clays, mineral
waters, lime rocks, coal, diamonds,
jasper, &c. Added to these inducements is the beautiful, healthy climate adapted particularly for the
necessities of young student life.
It has been hinted that the govern-
ment is disposed to have the mining school near the university to be
built at Point Grey, near Vancouver. With all deference to the
minister responsible for the suggestion Star does not think that the
proposed location would be wise or
in the interests of the public who
pay for it or to the best advantage
of a  mining  education  for young
students. I'i;t|?_
A large majority of newspaper
readers in this province favor the
clean journal as compared with the
abusive, libellous, name-calling
sheet that depends on notoriety rather than real merit for its circulation. The daily press and all the
weeklies published in British Columbia, with the one notable exception of the Sunset printed in Vancouver, are clean and fit for any
person's perusal. It is that exception which proves the rule. The
newspapers reflect the current opinion and thought of the people in
clean and wholesome language and
it is only _when a newspaper descends to low invective and scurrility, degrading the profession of
journalism, that public attention is
directed to the necessity for its reform. A low state of morals and
manners must result from an unbridled tongue or pen. The law
prohibits obscenity or profanity in
public hearing and it is equally pronounced in regard to lying defama^
tions printed in vulgar and demoralizing billingsgate. Both constitute public nuisances and menace
the well-being of the social fabric.
Rude and uncouth names, printed
as one frequently observes in the
paper mentioned, are not in the
vocabulary of the gentleman. In
behalf of decency and clean journalism the foul newspaper should
be avoided as a pest and if it is not
prohibited through the mails it can
be debarred admittance into respect?
able company. Tbe character of
the home and the individual is
known bv the literature taken. If
clean journalism is appreciated only
clean journals will be patronized
and encouragement given to that
respectful, courteous social intercourse which exalts a community
and also the nation.
There is a very welcome report
in circulation that a through passenger train - will -be-operated from
Spokane to Princeton beginning ist
of June. It is almost too .good to
be true. It is now over a year and
a half since the first regular train
arrived here and there have been
a dozen rumors about this same old
push-and-pull train which takes a
day and a night and half a day to
crawl up the Jimhilkameen valley
to its destination. The slowtst
train service in the world is said to
be down in Mexico where all hands
have been known to go to sleep
between stations and the train would
have to be cancelled. The train
hands on the Great Northern take
a snooze at Oroville and not a
wheel turns until they get well rested up and then they pull up to
Princeton, fifty miles or so, and
then they pull back again. Now,
if Jim Hill can't give a through
quick run between Spokane and
Princeton he should get the Mexi"
cans to manage i_. ly__- fjr
