PLACER MINING
<_.OLD  AND   PLATINUM
Copper   is  Strong at Sixteen
Cents—Coal Miners Strike
on Island.
The fifteenth general meeting of
the Western Branch of the Canadian
a; joint meeting with members of the
Mining Institute will be held in Rossland on Thursday, May 22. It will be
Spokane Local section of the American Institute of Mining Engineers.
Following are the outstanding facts
in connection with the coal miners
dispute with the employers on Vancouver Island: Two thousand men
had an enforced holiday since May 1.
Eight hundred men have been on
strike at Cumberland and Ladysmith
for the last seven months. The mine
managers declare that the men, having voted against the existing agreement will remain locked out until labor affairs are conducted by an exclusively Canadian miners union. Not
a pound of coal is being taken out in
the two mines at Nanaimo. Machinery at the mines is shut down, and is
being put in shape for a long period
of idleness.
Copper Prospects are Good.
The following culled from the
"Weekly Copper Letter of J. L.
Walker in the current issue of the
Boston Commercial: Copper is strong
at sixteen cents for lake, 15 3-4 cents
for electrolytic and 15 5-8 cents for
casting brands. The demand continues good both for domestic consumption and export. Producers are sold
ahead and the outlook is all that could
be desired. Whatever reaction there
may have hen thus far in other lines
of industry, on account of tariff agitation, no let up is noticeable in copper mining. The producing companies are operating at capacity and are
planning to increase their output.
The report of the British Columbia
Copper company for January and February, copies of which have been received, state that its smelter at Greenwood produced during the period 1,-
388,573 pounds of blister copper, 2924
ounces of gold, and 16,703 ounces of
silver, valued at approximately $300,-
000. January was credited with the
heaviest output of blister copper, a
total of 720,260 pounds having been
shipped.
Don't forget to renew your mining licence before midnight, May 31.
R. A. Lambert, the veteran placer
miner, has again replaced the dam on
Granite creek near the north fork
which was j washed away by high
water last year. He has made the
present dam secure as possible having
anchored it in the solid rock on either
side. The dimensions are: 80 feet
long, 10 feet deep, 12 1-2 feet wide,
and an apron of 30 feet. Much interest is taken in Mr. Lambert's work,
which if proven successful  will give
an immense impetus to placer mining
throughout the district. Gold and
platinum are known to be in the
creeks and rivers and it is hoped Mr.
Lambert may demonstrate the successful mining of these placers. His
flume is 950 feet long, 5 1-2x3 feet
inside, which will carry the creek at
low water.
E. Marston. of Spokane, was in East
Princeton recently, attending a meeting
ofthe United Empire Company.
Princeton Coal and Land Co. have received orders as a result of the big coal
strike at the coast.

ILLUMINATED ADS
S. E. Whiting and H. J. Lindsay, re_
presenting the Northwest Register Co..
Limited, Winnipeg, were in town this
week soliciting advertisements for an
electric settee to be placed in the lobby
of the hotel Princeton. The ads. are
placed in a circular frame above the seats
and illuminated from within by electric
lights. In connection with the advertising a library is kept for general use of
guests and citizens. This library will be
uptoday with the latest literature and
will be renewed as the times demand.
Messrs. Whiang and Lindsay are bright,
progressive young men and have met
with a large patronage here.
IMPROVING STOCK.
Realizing that inability to secure
the use of wellhred male animals is at
the present time one of the greatest
difficulties standing in the way of live
stock development in many parts of
Canada, particularly in the newly settled districts, the Dominion Department of Agriculture, through the Live
Stock Branch, is this year undertaking a widespread distribution of pure
bred stallions, bulls, rams and boars.
The original cost of the animals will
be born by the Department and they
will be placed in the hands of such local organizations as agree to the conditions governing the distribution. In
a word these sires will remain the
property of the Department, but the
local associations will be responsible
Continued on page 3.
receive both the Dominion and pro
.incial subsidies, amounting to about
$10,500 per mile. The V. V & E. does
not ask for susidy but will have voice
in operating and will have full running rights over the line; also it will
have a sayso in awarding of contracts
for construction and rights of supervision. Tenders will be called for
soon and work is expected to begin
about the middle of June.
Grading on the V. V. & E. in Otter
valley, from Tulameen to Otter summit, is going on steadily.
W. H. Burns has finished locating^
on the K. V. to near Semerad's andAs
now running a preliminary tojvarq
Aspen Grove, westward. He is camped
at'J-UKe Gibson's ranch.
Steel has been laid to Spuzzum on
the C. N. R. and it is expected to reach
Kamloops by the end of the year.
The first test hole for the K. V. R.
bridge at Hope has now reached a
depth of 147 feet. After passing
through a deposit of barren matter
the pump is again bringing up specks
of gold in the gravel. Bed-rock, it is
thought, cannot be for away.
The grade is completed on the K. V.
to camp 21, near Osprey lake, 34 miles
northeast from Princeton. Sub contractors Carlson and Burns are about
to tender for some 14~n_____-of grade
between Osprey lake and Semerad's.
L. M. Rice & Co. have got the main
contract to the latter point.
The big trestle across Trout creek, near
Snmmerlajft. on the K.V. will be in
shape todrntnit trains over it in early July.
Construction work on the K. V. is
£j_mpletely tied up from Kelowna to
'Naramata, a distance of 47 miles. One
contractor is working a/gang of Russians this side of Nju__mata, but the
strikers have annojificed their intention of sending ar delegation to talk
to these Russians. Trouble has not
yet spread to the Summerland side
of the lake, where general conditions
in the camps are reported by men to
be much better, and where construction is much further advanced.
As a probable forecast of the railroad situation affecting Princeton and
district it is said that the Kettle Vp
ley line will have running rights o\
the V. V. & E. beginning at the ce
ent works at East Princeton and ex
tending to Coalmont. In lieu of this
privilege it will give the V. V. & E.
running rights over its lines to
Princeton and to Copper mountain
when completed. The K. V. line to
Copper mountain is expected to tie in
with the V. V. & E. at the end of spur
to the Princeton Coal and Land Co's
coal mine.
TRANSPROVINCIAL ROAD.
The completiou of this great provincial
artery into town gives one an idea ofthe
substantial nature of its construction. It
is doubtful if the old Roman roads, which
are the wonder of the world for durability, could have been built any better in
the same time.
Following the old Hope road from its
intersection with Vermilion avenue the
T.P.R. ascends in graceful curve and
easy gradient until it gains the first
bench at the hospital. Wide roadbed,
firm and smooth, gentlv sloping iuwards,
the driver or pedestrian cannot fail to be
impressed with the finish and/scientific
construction of the modern,___d.
Road building machinery and the
trained and experienced surpervisor have
made possible th^'construction of a trunk
road tfiat wiR#e creditable alike to the
goverm_n£}*fand all connected with  it.   '
Supervisor W. A. McLean has a payroll
^f nearly 6o men, which will be increased
Ao about ioo as soon as the headquarters
camp is established at Nineun^T to
which- point movement was made on
Thursday. The pay is $3 per day of nine
hours. Bridges over Nmeinile and Whip-
saw are about ready for traffic.
Road Superintendent Turner and Engineer Cleveland made an inspection of
the completed road this week.
The scenic effect of the road is very
striking in its approach to town. Tourists in their cars will have many beautiful views for their mental and pocket
kodacks as they near town from either
east or west.
GREAT POWWOW.
Spokane, Wash., May ?V.—To promote closer commercial relations between all parts of the Inland Empire a congress of commercial and industrial interests will be held in Spokane during the Pow Wow, June 16
to 21. Among the subjects to be discussed are the. expected change in
business conditions following opening
the Panama canal, Palouse irrigation
project, Quincy valley project, logged-
off land question, farm marketing,
community development and county
agricultural agents. The Inland Empire Development league probably
will be organized at the conference,
which is being arranged by H. C.
Sampson, manager of last year's
National Apple show.

TULAMEEN TUMTUM.
L. W. Shatford and road superintendent Turner were here recently.
They were beseiged with prayers and
petitions for construction of roads
and trails.
C. S. Jennings, operating on Cedar
creek, is to get an armstrong ferry
I hung on wire and worked by ropes.
Reilly and Jensen will have the old
Sutter creek trail cut out. They have
got the mother lode of the belt. It
carries all that the fissures do and
then some.
Micky McGonigal is cleaning out
the Bear creek road. Five men have
gone into the Indiana.
The old timers who know the
country are still locating.
Prof. Marks is going to build on his
property at the mouth of Sutter creek.
Tom Lee has got chrome iron that
runs $6 in platinum and diamond dust
of great value.
There is no use of strangers going
into Leadville to prospect for two
months-yet.
J. A. Schubert has got the contract
on the Indiana tunnel. There is
plenty of snow in this district.
PURE BRED STALLION.
The stallion recently brought to
Princeton for service in this district
has  a  certificate  of registry  as  fol-
ws: name, Lubbens Captain; bred
D.   Kohlen   Campe,   Berne,   Ger-
_.ny; imported by Frank lams, St.
Paul, Nebraska, an Aug. 24, 1905; sire
Ruthard (1255); dam, Allida (5032).
The certificate of registry is issued
ty the Oldenburg Coach Horse Association of America. The horse is also
registered at Ottawa, Canada. Farmers and others have a good breed with
which to improve their stock. This
is a long felt want supplied.
LOCAL AND GENSRAL.
The moving pictures at Princess
theatre are drawing good houses numerically and the patrons are satisfied and appreciative. The picture illustrating rescue work in a coal mine
disaster was interesting and instructive, giving one an idea of the perils
besetting underground workers. Then
the comical side of life was well illustrated in the great burlesque wrestling match between Hack and Schmidt.
T_e three bouts were full of striking
situations and caused roars of laughter.    The movies are all right.
Every parent and ratepayer should be
interested in school matters before the
annual meeting in  July.
J. H Jackson has sold his barn, livery
and stage business at Tulameen to W. S.
Garrison, Princeton. Joe Wigmore holds
ihe ribbons and throws the silk on the
new Princeton-Tulameen stage.
J. H. Wagner has taken the clothes
cleaning business lately conducted by
Fenry L. Nelson and will be found in
the premises, Britton block, formerly
occupied by the latter.
Never mind the knockers—they cannot stop the wheels of progress nor injure

DANCE AT COALMONT.
The second annual bachelor's ball was
successfully brought off in the Coalmont
Hotel on Monday evening, when there
was a large attendance of terpsichoreai.s
from Princeton, Tulameen and nearby
points and a very enjoyable time was
spent in dancing to the strains of the
Princeton string orchestra composed of
Miss Layton, J. O., Mrs. and Miss Coulthard Dancing commenced at nine
o'clock and was continued with spirit till
3.30, when the merry gathering dispersed
their various ways. At midnight an ex
cellent recherche supper was served by
the bachelors, on whom fell all expenses
for the evening. The committee was as
follows : T. F. Whiteman, E. Pringle,
W. Rossiter and W. Abson. The next
dance here has been fixed for June 3rd,
the King's birthday, and will be preceded bv a lacrosse match for a purse of
$100.—Com.

for their proper maintainance and
management under the general supervision of Officers of the Live Stock
Branch. In the case of stallions, the
members of the associations will also
be required to pay a fee covering an
annual insurance premium.
All animals distributed will be
bought from home breeders and will
be Canadian bred. As far as possible,
they Will be purchased in the-province
in which they are to be placed. In
this way Canadian breeders will receive encouragement and their market
will be incre.ased not only directly but
also indirectly through the emphasis
given throughout the country to the
value of pure bred sires. It may be
added that it is not the intention to
place the animals in districts where
suitable male animals of the same
class are already owned by private individuals. The aim is rather to aid
sections where pure bred sires are
lacking and as well to encourage new
communities in following a proper and
intelligent system in breeding.
(All bulls distributed will be purchased subject to the tuberculin test
and only stallions which have passed
a rigid .veterinary inspection for
soundness will be selected.
tfn order to take advantage of this
form of assistance, it will be necessary for interested parties, in any section, to undertake the organization of
a local association in whose hands
such sires as are required may be
placed. Complete information regarding the rules and regulations governing the distribution may be made upon application to the Live Stock Commissioner, Ottawa. Whenever possible
an Officer of the Branch will render
assistance in the perfecting of the
necessary local organization.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The improvement of the breed of
horses has long been a recognized
necessity in this ■ section? Some
years ago the matter was brought
to public notice throijgh the board
of trade. Through the commendable enterprise of a few private citizens a pure bred stallion has been
imported recently for service in
this section. The stock sired by
this horse have won great favor in
the states. Farmers and other
horse breeders in this district have
now a fine opportunity to better
their stock with a splendid type of
animal suitable for general use."
The days of theliorse are by no
means numbered, as some predicted
when the chug-chug, buzz wagon
and guzzy-fuzzy came with their
bad odors and villainous eyes darting through space by night. The
borse responds to man's voice and
kindness forming a bond of mutual
affection utterly absent in the gasoline go-devil. The horse is here to
stay and he must be beautiful,
strong and fleet.
sonal welfare, her home, her children, her property. To treat her
as if she were incapable, irrational,
or unfit, stultifies and retards the
progress of humanity. Wherever
woman hears the call ot duty no
act of parliament should stand in
her way. Star is not in sympathy
with riotous militancy, but it has
more respect for the one who is
ready to suffer, aye die, for a cause
than the chicken-hearted premier
who recently denied ^quality of
right to woman.
The senseless opposition to 'votes
for women' has its foundation in
selfish uncharitableness and egotistic superiority of man—'lord of all
creation.' He has an unholy fear
of woman sharing in the glories
and honors of national achievements in the betterment of humanity. Moreover he fears that woman
may supplant him in the field of
legislation which he now so jealously and exclusively monopolizes.
Coward ! Is not woman the better
half of humanity? At least she is
man's equal, both created in God's
spiritual image and likeness. Is
that not enough to forever settle the
question of equality of the sexes ?
Woman's sphere is so indissolubly
bound up with that of man that it
is impossible to legislate without
both being affected. No man with
either chivalrous or generous principles would refuse his mother and
s ster the same liberty he enjoys.
T.ierefore, the right of woman to
use her voice and to vote is inalienable. As a part \of the human
family woman is entitled to a voice
in everything that concerns he per-
The ever changing view obtained
from the roads in and around the
town are a source of delight and
surprise to all. Beautiful perspective stretching miles away to the
green hills and the everlasting snow
bound peaks, surprising vistas
through the trees, the music of the
rippling rivers, the ground covered
with lovely wildflowers, the appetizing breath of the pines, all make
man thankful to still be permitted
to be on 'deck.' The views put in
illustrated folder would not only be
an attractive advertisement but
would be a souvenir worthy of
presentation to one's close friend or
to the king. Now that the town is
emerging from primeval conditions
to citified ambitions it would not be
amiss to assist nature in her elaborate beautification. Planting of
ornamental trees along the streets
and the fitting out of a public square
are readily suggested to minds of
citizens favoring attractiveness and
beauty.
Strides toward universal peace
are long and swift these days.

and peace conferences are events of
the passing day. Men high in
the world's esteem, those gifted in
statecraft and all 'who seek peace
and pursue it' are in some measure
contributing to the rising of the
sun of universal. War is a wicked
humbug. Anything born of jealousy, malice or greed is evil, hence
war is an evil; it is a huge crime
from beginning to end. The encouragement of the military spirit
is a wrong. Physical training,
discipline, bravery or anything good
soldiers are taught can be learned
by peaceful methods and without
the use of sword, knife, bayonet,
gun or other weapon. Canada is
about to contribute a huge sum of
money which she must borrow from
those she presents it to and which
she must stagger under for years to
pay, to^be used in building warships soon to be relegated to the
scrap heap. A contribution of
$^5,000,000 toward the cause of
universal peace would be of permanent benefit and something our children would bless us for, but invested in emergencies and war scares to
please the jingoes that blessing
would be turned to cursing. Canada for peace!

The manufacture of cement will begin in a few
weeks. A permanent payroll and a growing town
with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two

Oven Results From A
Gurney-Oxford Range
The value of a stove to a woman is measured
by the successful results in cooking- obtained
from the oven. With this primary object in
view, stove experts have invented means of absolute control over the distribution of heat to
every part of the range.
The Gurhey-Oxford is constructed with a
Divided Flue that carries the heat to the back
of the stove through two different divisions.
By this scientific arrangement the two back
lids of the stove are given equal cooking value
and the oven is thoroughly surrounded by a
steady even   heat.
With a Gurney-Oxford, it is never necessary to open the oven door several times during the baking of a pan of biscuits to turn
them around next the heat.
Eiscuits, pastry, cake, or bread all bake evenly,
rise evenly, and brown evenly without any attention whatever from the cook.
A simple device aptly called the Economizer
regulates the exact temperature of the oven
by moving a small lever around a series of
six notches. A woman soon learns the important value of each notch, one of which immediately checks the hottest fire and keeps it
low until she requires it again.
«g|) A wonderful cooking reputation is made and

The City of Toronto may buy out
the Street Railway Company and also

for $27,000,000. The companies have
offered to sell out at that price and
the city is securing legislation to enable it to take over the two systems.
The Electric Light Company is a competitor of the City's Hydro-Electric
enterprise and there have been years
of controversy between the City and
the Street Railway Company. Sir
William Mackenzie wields the control
in both companies. The legislation
provides for the issue of debentures by

TIRED OF MILITARISM.
Public opinion in Italy, at least
among the lower classes, shows signs
of weariness at the increasing expenditure by the government on military
armaments and colonial expansion.
It had been stated at the beginning of
the Tripolitan campaign that the
treasury was in a position to meet the
exigences of the longest war without
having recourse to increased taxation.
The people have found, it is stated,
that though no direct taxation had
been imposed on them, the government
has obtained the money it needed by
means of disguised loans 'the last one
amounting to four hundred million
lire, and by the appropriation of the
excess of income tax until 1930. The
cost of living has increased rapidly
and unemployment is rife. The discontent which these conditions have
fostered has added many supporters to
the ranks of the Socialists, whose party program includes the strongest opposition to militarism and imperialism.
THE SINS OF WAR.
The Socialist leader, Liebknicht, in
the German Reichstag accused a Berlin armament firm of sending emissaries to provide a certain section of the
French press with material for agitating against Germany. He also accused the Krupps with employing secret agents to corrupt German officers
and officials of the Prussian war office
in order to obtain information of
forthcoming contracts and also an insight into the offers of competing
firms. The Minister of War admitted
that one of the Krupp officials had
bribed some Government officials to
reveal certain information.- He expressed disbelief in the charge of stirring up trouble between France and
Germany. The feeling caused by the
charges, however, has overshadowed
every other subject before the public.
