m
B,
C.  Copper  Co's Energetic
Policy in Proving Vast
Properties Here.
Silver-Lead Camps Active—Leadville
Attracts Writers and Many
Practical Persons-
The B.C. Copper Co. will begin at once
development work on a largely increased
scale, doubling the force of men now
employed and otherwise pushing forward
investigation of their vast mineral areas
at Voigt camp and Copper mountain.
No other company in the province holds
such immense ore reserves as is believed
to be contained in these contiguous
camps. The old Sunset and Voigt camp
mineral claims will be the busy scenes of
new work to be rapidly advanced.
Thomas Rogers, of Mountain View,
Cal., and recently from Desmet, Idaho,
is visiting this section after an absence of
7 or 8 years. He has considerable mining interests here and is showing good
samples of gypsum taken from his claim
near Welldo Mr Rogers was associated
with A. Gallinger and other Oshkoeh,
Wis., parties on the Cousin Jack, Boulder
creek. He left for Pesmet on Wednesday.
John T. Blackburn, mine owner aud
operator, of Spokane, arrived in town
Tuesday on hi** way to Leadville, via
Tulaneen. For some dozen years he was
engaged in mining near Twisp, Wash.
Mr. Blackburn will spend the summer in
the district and will carry on expensive
development work at Leadville, where
he has acquired mineral interests.
The annual report of the Standard
silver-lead mine at Silverton, B. O,
for 1912, sent out to stockholders by
Secretary Charles Hussey, shows that
the company earned a net profit of
$544,043, of which $425,000 was distributed to shareholders in dividends,
leaving a balance in the treasury of
$165,123, a surplus of $46,080, carried
over from 1911, being included in this
amount.
April proved an exceptionally good
month for holders of stock of American metal mines and metallurgical
works, for according to reports made
to the Mining and Engineering World
no less than $11,890,848 was disbursed
in dividends, 63 companies contributing,   fcffp
Plans are being laid for calling a
meeting in Nelson of all interested in
mining for the purpose of forming an
association of mining men and prospectors. Chief among the objects of
the proposed association will be to
establish means for placing the owners of mineral claims in touch with
capitalists who are seeking promising properties, and to appoint a permanent secretary, who will have a list
of claims, which are for sale and who
will be in a position to supply reliable
information of a specific nature regarding the various sections of the
Kootenay-Boundary   mining   districts.
Hon. James Dunsmuir, the largest
stockholder in the Coronation mines;
H. B. Thompson, president of the corporation, and B. J. Perry, director, are
due to arrive in Lilloet in a few days
In order to be present at the starting
of the 10-stamp mill at Coronation on
June 1. Splendid progress is being
made at the mines, a large amount of
free milling ore of high value being
on the dumps ready for crushing. This
will be treated this year.
D. A. Thomas, a Welsh coal magnate
employing 50,000 meu, i' at Merritt and
will examine coal properties with a view
to purchase. A merger with other coal
properties is said to be his object.
Fred Keffer and H. Johns of the B C.
Copper Co. were in town this week on
mining business.
E. P. Wheeler of Conconully, Wash.,
was in town recently and went up to
Friday creek to his mineral property
there. He is looking forward to the
completion of the tranprovincial road
to Friday creek. With bornite of such
high value and other copper ores there
is bound to be a camp. Mr. Wheeler
deserves rich reward for his persevering labors and there is no doubt
he will get it when transportation
comes.
An error in a mining paragraph of
last week's issue states that Reilly
and Jensen were at work on the Xmas
Eox mineral claims. This is not true
as they are at work on the Carbonate.
Star regrets the error.
LEADVILLE CHUNKS
Tulameen, May 23.—Your correspondent returned from Leadville last
night. The weather has been bad all
this month until now. The trail is
solid but there are some bunches of
snow. I expect to take horses to the
mouth of Sutter creek in three or four
days. From there we will have to
pack our supplies three miles on our
backs to the Carbonate mine. Twenty-
four miles from here the Carbonate
lead is giving promise of an immense
amount of profitable ore.
There are five men at the Indiana.
Three days since there were about 26
inches of good concentrating ore in
the face of the adit. The snow will average four feet deep there yet.
There are three men at the Treasure mountain mine. J. C. Edwards,
who is in charge, is well pleased and
work is progressing satisfactorily.
Patsy Clark is expected here soon.
He is planning big work on the Ross
claims.
There are about 35 men working on
the wagon road. I figure it will take
_5 men four summers to make the
road through. There is a lot of heavy
work to be done. The engineer could
revise the route with profit. I am not
finding fault with his former work;
he did not have the time necessary to
look over the country and survey the
road to save cost.
PRINCESS THEATRE.
The moving picture show at the
Princess has been of exceptionally
high merit during the past week. Dignan Bros, introduced specialties which
are at once marvels of the art of
moving illustrations, and instructive
as well as amusing. Showgoers appreciate the efforts of the management to please. To be uptodate hear
the latest music and see fashion and
event at the Princess.
TOWN AND DISTM
Dominion Day Celebration is
in Committee Stage
of Progress.
Invitation to All Loyal Inhabitants
of Similkameen to Come and
Enjoy Sports.
Dominion Day celebration committees are hard at work and the best
program ever provided is shaping.
Already about $800 have been subscribed for the various events. The
invitation committee extend special
request to every resident of the Similkameen valley and neighboring
towns to come and participate in the
fun and help celebrate the national
day.    Come.
Rev. T. A. Osborne, it will be learned
with regret, is about to leave Princeton,
having been transferred to White Rock,
a sea side watering re ort of much beauty
near Blaine on the International boundary. He will be succeeded by Rev. Mr.
Chadwell. During Mr. Osborne's residence here he has made many lasting
friendships and is esteemed as a valued
citizen, a faithful and capable preacher
of the gospel of good cheer and heavenly
hopes. Both be and Mrs. Osborne have
the good wishes of every citizen.
Mrs. A. Archibald left for her home at
Edmonton last Monday, having visited
a week with her sister, Mrs. How e. She
admires the natural beauty of Princeton
and her well known talent for painting
may transfer some of it to canvas. Mrs.
Archibald was a student of the masters
in Paris, France, and her works have
been selected by such famed art con
noisseursas the late J. pierpont Morgan
also Sir William Van Home, whose galleries tl'ev now adorn.
Billy Knight has returned from a visit
with Fred Watnpole on Fivemile and is
much improved in health after a long
siege of illness. His many friends hope
to see him fully recovered soon.
Miss Ruby Howse, Charlie Howse and
J. Crowley paid a 'flying' visit here last
Sunday in the family rar. Mr. Howse is
manager of the Merritt Mercantile Co.,
having given over research in aeronautics.
VICTORIA DAY AT KEREMEOS
The celebration of Victoria Day at
Keremeos was a great attraction and
proved a grand success in sports,
dance and entertainment generally.
With its orchards, beautiful homes,
lovely valley and affable people Keremeos is always attractive. The occasion was thoroughly enjoyed by the
large contingent from Princeton.Some
of the events were as follows:
Baseball—Oroville beat Hedley 13
to 11; Penticton beat Oroville 7 to 5.
Lacrosse—Princeton won from Keremeos 4 to 2. Rob. Carmichael, referee.    The game was swift and en
joyed by spectators. Brooks, McCurdy and Innis were ordered to the
fence for making a rough field, otherwise the game was played according
to lacrosse law.
Eklund, the wrestler, put down four
opponents and won out.
The Penticton band provided the
music.
The lacrosse boys were entertained
by J. A. Brown at his beautiful home.
Mr. Brown is an enthusiastic lover
of the game.
MINING INSTITUTE.
That although the mines of Rossland, since the Le Roi made its initial
trial shipment of ore to Butte in 1891,
have produced metals to the value of
over $55,000,000, and that although
tho shaft of the Centre Star mine has
attained a vertical depth of 2,300 feet,
the bottom of the ore bodies has not
yet been reached, was the striking
statement made at the opening of the
15th general meeting of the western
branch of the Canadian Mining institute in Knights of Columbus hall by
M. E. Purcell, manager of the Centre
Star mine and chairman of the insti-
tue. Additional interest is given to
the series of meetings by reason of
the fact that the sessions are being
held jointly with the Spokane branch
of the American Mining institute. The
importance of the part which was
played by Spokane capitalists in the
early. development of the Rossland
mines and by this camp in assisting
materially in the upbuilding of the
inland empire metropolis was referred to by speakers at the meeting.
NEWSPAPER EDITOR VISITS.
L. C. Bransom, a frontier newspaper
editor and proprietor, arrived in town on
an exploratory and outing trip. He has
a hobby for hunting, trapping and fishing and brought along a couple of smart
dogs with which to tree bear, mountain
lions, cougar, goats and other wi d animals. He never runs to tall timber himself,
having had the pleasure and satisfaction
of standing off a mob at Tonopah, Nev.,
which threatened to demolish him and
bis plant because he fearlessly exposed a
gang of holdups and thugs. Mr. Bransom ran two daily newspapers at once at
Tonopah and Goldfield, Nevada, and is a
live wire with the quill. He had the late
John Huston, printer, legislator and editor on his staff in Goldfield and surely
there was 'something doing' all the time,
not a minute that lagged, not a second
that did not scintillate. John, of course,
is now resting nicely (no editor deser\-
ed heaven more than he) while L. C. is
ready for other newspaper fields. Mr.
Bransom owned the Dawson Yukon
Nugget, Medford Times, Ore., as well as
the Nevada ventures. At present his
family resides in Victoria, B. C, bnt he
may remove to this district. He went to
Tnlameen' Wednesdav and will visit
Leadville and other mining camps. Mr
Bransom is delighted with Princeton and
the climate of the Similkameen. He was
shown over the Star office and seemed
quite interested in the plant and the

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
KETTLE VALLEY RESURVEY
Further delay in the construction of
the Kettle Valley Railway through the
Coquihalla River Valley is unavoidable. The last survey, made by C. J.
Seymour, was practically completed
before the conclusion of the agreement between the Ktttle. Valley and
V. V. & E. companies. As an indirect
consequence of that agrement a re-
survey has been ordered by A. Mc-
Culloch, chief engineer, of 11 miles ot
the road from Hope east. The work
is beginning at once under G. C.
Clough. Camp will be pitched at the
upper end of the section, 11 miles
from Hope.
It will be remembered that by the
agreement made, the K. V. R. company is to build and operate 57 miles
of road from Hope to Otter Summit.
At the last-named point connection
will be made with the V. V. & E. line
from Princeton by way of Tulameen.
The Kettle Valley line from Merritt
westward to the summit is already
nearly built.
It is at the Hope end of the line that
a problem is presented. The grade
must be high enough to join on to the
relocated C. P. R. main line by the
bridge across the Fraser, and must
also afford the V. V. & E. company an
easy connection with the Canadian
Northern tracks in or near Hope.
These objects, it is expected, may
both be attained by relocating the line
through the canyon of the Coquihalla.
How long the delay will be can
hardly be stated in advance. A ser-
vey of 11 miles is not in itself a formidable undertaking but this re-survey may prove so. Three times the
Coquihalla valley has been surveyed
by. railway engineers and the line
through the canyon has been practically the same each time. It is difficult to find, a feasible alternative route
line and yet ' that is what is now
sought.
Naturally a change in the line of the
railway as it enters Hope may affect
the approach to the bridge but the
change, if any, will probably be very
slight.
The bridge crew is continuing the
sinking of test holes. It was probably
never contemplated that the building
of piers would begin before the late
autumn of the present year.
Pending the re-survey of the line
there can be no call for tenders for
construction.—Yale Review.
Careful inquiry has resulted in assurances from the majority of the
growers in the districts that the frosts
experienced here have not done any
damage to the fruit crop. At present the outlook could hardly be better
and there is every prospect for a
bumper yield.
Sunday real estate deals will not
stand in law in Alberta. That was
the effect of a decision handed down
yesterday by Chief Justice Harvey.
Alfred B. Swinsted brought suit
against Gustave Anderson, seeking to
annul an agreement in connection
with a real estate transaction made
on Sunday, and the decision was rendered in the plaintiff's favor.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
An organization of miners and
prospectors in other districts has
been effected for their benefit and
use, while in the Similkameen no
such body seems to have been
thought of lately. Local associations
allied with a central or district body
could accomplish much necessary
good in directing the attention of
investors to legitimate propositions
and in an advisory way furnish such
reliable information as might be
required. Cooperative effort to secure legislation in the interests of
the mining industry generally is
the most effective way to impress
legislators. A local mining association at Princeton would serve as a
nucleus for the larger district organization.    Can it be doue ?

REMEDY J?OR HIGH COST OF
LIVING
Commissions a-plenty these days.
Has one with full power and high
pressure ever considered the cause
of the high cost of living as intimately related with the railroads ?
Endless complaints by individuals
and public bodies are made regarding excessive freight, passenger and
express rates. The farce of permitting railroad companies to raise
their rates on some articles when
compelled to reduce them on others
is most ludicrous as well as annoying. If the cost of articles of food
is increased fifty per cent, or more
while conveyed by the railroads it
is evident that the profits as between the producer, manufacturer,
railroad company, wholesale and
retail merchants and the consumer
has been unbalanced. Some one is
not getting value for his money.
The cost of living ought to be regulated by the price of labor of the
masses and not by some extraneous
or  non-producing   cause,   such  as
Every day one is reminded of the
trend of the times to form societies,
secret and fraternal orders, associations, companies, corporations, syndicates, trusts, mergers, pools, political rings and church combines.
Organization, concentration, preparation, these are the watchwords of the hour. What does it
all mean ? Are men finding out the
folly of disunion, seoaratenessand
suicidal competition ? If one may
read the signs aright the near future
will unfold a complete revolution in
regard to personal, national and
international relations. The world
is improving, notwithstanding the
pessimists, although vice and corruption are more flagrant. The
spirit of unity manifest in visible
unions is abroad. In union is
strength and peace. 'That they all
may be one' are words full of
meaning for this day, the fruit of
them being found in united effort
along fraternal, commercial and religious lines. Unity is oneness,
peace, separtion is loneliness, un-
happiness, war.
EAST   PRINCETON
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
railways will serve transportation.

WAR IS BRUTISH, NOT MANLY
That venerable Latin proverb, "Si
vis pacem para bellum," has been used
to drape so many disgraceful situations that the world has got to regard
it almost as a truism. The world's
memory is short, and its knowledge
of history insignificant. If it were not
for this, it might remember that ever
since there were men on the .globe,
they have been preparing, to fight
without in any way preserving' peace.
This was bad enough in the days of
"Caesar's thrasonical brag," or when
Alexander was sighing for more
worlds to conquor. In the days, however, when Caesar and Alexander have
given place to Undershaft and Lazarus, men have given up Latin and
"Si vis pacem, para bellum" is paraphrased as national insurance, or security against war risks.
The truth is that the maxim if you
wish for war prepare for peace, has
been the making of Undershaft and
Lazarus.   If you wish for peace, however, you had better set to work to
get rid  of the passions  which make
for. war.     The   perfecting   of   armaments does not show a great belief in
peace, and though the world constantly hears that the more effective arms
become the more impossible it will be
to use them, the fact remains that the
improvement of arms of precision has
decreased  rather  than  increased the
percentage   of   casualties.     The   destruction  in the   armies  of  Marlborough and Eugene was greater in proportion  than  in those  of Wellington
and Napoleon, just as the losses sustained   by   Wellington   and   Napoleon
were greater than those sustained by
Moltke and MacMahon. ' It is not in
actual fighting that the real horror of
war  is  seen.    It was  in the  retreat
from Moscow and not at Borodino that
the  French  suffered  most,  and  anybody who will study Kinglake's  diagrams of the diminishing Russian columns on the march to Sebastopol will
learn to appreciate this very clearly.
If there were anything to show that
preparing   for   war  had   ever   led   to
anything but more  preparations,  the
proverb might be regarded with more
respect.    Unfortunately, the preparations are more like Danton's audacity
than   anything   else.     "What  we   require  in  order   to. conquor,"  Danton
declared, "is  audacity,  and yet more
audacity,   j and     always     audacity!"
"What we require to preserve peace,"
says the modern statesman, "is  preparation,   and  yet  more  preparation,
and always preparation!"    Yet what
prevented   war   when  Austria   siezed
Bosnia    and    Herzegovina    was    the
simple  fact that Russia  was  unprepared.    If Russia had been prepared
either  Bosnia  or  Herzegovina would
not have been annexed, or else there
would  have  been  a war.    Logically,
you might argue that what saved war
on  this   occasion  was   the   fact   that
Russia was exhausted by the war with
Japan, and therefore that the way to
prevent war is to go to war.   There is
one way, and one way only, to preserve peace, and that is by a higher
civilization.    A civilization not manifested in the power to produce dreadnoughts on the sea and dirigibles in
the sky, but by destroying in humanity
the   lust  of  possession,  hallowed  by
the term imperial..   The desire to retain a place in the sun'is as prolific of
quarrel  as the desire to obtain one,
and  it  originated  in  that  aboriginal
imperialist to whom Rousseau bitterly
declared it first occurred to set up a
ring fence and to say, "This_is mine!"

Gasoline and benzine will
clean soiled clothing, gloves,
etc., but it will also explode
and is most inflammable.
NYAI/S KLE-NEM will do
all that Gasoline or Benzine
will do in the way of cleaning
but it will neither burn nor
explode.
It also leaves a dainty odor
of carnations.
Anyone who ever used Kle-Nem
will never go back to the old fashioned way.
Kle-Nem is only a quarter a
bottle.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
The future and the past are stock
subjects for those who love to worry
and be miserable. Take no thought
for the morrow: who can live the
past over again?
Man is here today and away tomorrow and it is good he can take!
nothing with him; otherwise some
'hog' would take all and leave nothing
for the poor.
Be friendly, not intimate, with
strangers. To force acquaintanceship
i' worse than cold reserve, neither
begets respect and respect is the rock
all good mixers stand on.
Good manners consist in giving offense to no one—love all, do good to
enemies.
If you care to know the best that
our literature can give in simple.noble
prose—mark, learn, and inwardly digest the Holy Scriptures in the English tongue.—Frederic Harrison.
Common sense is doing the sensible
thing and saying the right word when
tempted to be silly or nonsensical.
Wisdom is priceless, always beautiful.
Work Is medicine and long life to
the. clean minded.
Life is eternal, undefinable God,
All, ever active. Death is an enemy,
evil, opposed to life. Life is spirit,
unseen; death is decaying flesh, matter, seen. Death may be conquered
by crucifying flesh and putting on
spirit.
Speak the word of praise, of encouragement: It mSakes you bigger
and helps in life's struggle.
We must all pass through the fiery
trial before we get home, heaven. All
are pilgrims here.
The knocker, like sour land, produces noxious weeds.
We can only have the highest happiness by having wide thoughts and
much feeling for the rest of the world.
—George Eliott.
