Mining is the leading industry of the Similkameen and is capable of vast development, not a tenth of it being, as yet, prospected—It
is the Prospector's Paradise, easy of access and virtually unlimited in area—Manufacturing facilities are excellent—Healthy climate.

QUEST FOR PLATINUM
Geologist Explores and Investigates the  Tulameen
Mineral Belt.
District Rich in Minerals Offers Good
Investment for Capital—Good
for Placers.
Charles Camsell, Dominion geologist,
was in town Monday, haying come down
from GTanite Creek, to which point he
had recently removed his part}- from the
Otter Flat section. He has about finished the season's field..work, leaving
last of the week via Nicola for Ottawa.
He has a larger amount of specimens
this year than he has ever taken out
before and will be engaged all winter in
study of them.
Mr. Camsell finds the work very interesting in the Tu'ameen or Otter Flat section, the geologic conditions being rarely
met with in any mineral country. His
investigations are more particulary for
the determination of the origin and
source of platinum found in the Tula-
atneen river and tributaries Difficulty
has been found in establishing correlative ages owing to the absence of certain
fossiliferous deposits. In such case the
geologist must rely on structural conditions for data and this Mr. Camsell has
done at the expense of infinite pains and
labor.
The probability of finding platinum in
place in sufficient quantity to make it of
economic value is remote. The theory
is that it is widespread or pocketty and
is not evenly distributed or it would
have been discovered before. This is the
opinion of some laymen which the scientific investigations of Mr. Camsell may
wholly upset.
The commercial value of platinum is
so high that very low grade ore is profitable. Its presence in the alluvial deposits of the Tulameen and Similkameen
rivers and in Granite creek rather point
to cutting the formation somewhere, thus
freeing the nuggets and dust found in
these waters by golddiggers. There is
little doubt that at no distant day platinum mining, both ore and placer, will
be successfully carried on here. Capital
and brains combined are all that is re-*
quired.
LIKES SIMILKAMEEN BEST.
J. D. Lumsden, manager of the A. E.
Howse Co., here, arrived last Wednesday
fiom a holiday trip which included Vernon, where he visited sisters ; Vancouver,
where he seems to have a loadstone

RAILWAY RUMBLINfiS
Revision of  Portion of   Line
Begins in Otter Valley
Last Week.
Pushing Work all Along the Line for
Final Spnrt to Finish—Regular
Service Soon.
The survey party under C. F. Russell
which went up to Dan McKay's place
last week are revising the V.,V. & E.
from that point toward Princeton. This
is not taken to indicate abandonment of
the tunnel route. It may mean anything
in.the range of a million probabilities
which Uncle Jim is not telling to every
one just now. What the public want is
quick construction of tbe railway to the
coast. It matters not to them whether
the road goes through Mac's backyard,
the tunnel, the air or down some old
turnpike. The road is wauted quickly
and badly. If it is not forthcoming the
people must know why.
The tracklayfers are expected to arrive
at Princeton in about a week and are
now about a mile west of Bromley's.
It is about 12 miles from here to Bromley's.
Work on the spur to the V.F.M. Co's
coal tipple is being pushed with all speed
so that the arrival of the locomotive will
find splendid steaming coal in the bunkers ready for its use.
There is no indication of an advance
being made in construction beyond
Princeton. The g ading will be all done
in about three weeks.
The first week in December is said to
be the time set for regular trains to arrive in Princeton and the beginning of
a new order of mail, express, passenger
and freight service.
Stringing the telegraph wire, building
fences, freight sheds and stations are
all now in progress and ; the long looked
for and sighed for railway will soon be a
reality and a blessing forever if a square
deal is given on rates.
'BRTJCE' ON THE WING.
J. PjgfdcConnell, the Bruce of Satur-
dajSptfnset, was in town last week col-
Ij^ptrng information about the Similkameen for his paper. He is fortunate in
having the 'blessed wherewithal' and the
energy to make these news gathering
expeditions. The Sunset occupies a
sphere unique in journalism—it has no
strings on it and fairly scintillates with
home thrusts at men and things. J. P.
has inhaled the ozone of the west so long
that his pen scarcely touches paper without bright, pungent exhalations ornamenting its pages There ought to be
more Sunsets in Canada.
MINES AND MINIM
Whipsaw   has   Earmarks   of
Big Camp, now Needs
the Capital.
Coal Shipping from Princeton only a
Matter of Days — Miners
at Work.
The Tulameen Coal & Coke Co. has
sold its coal holdings on the North Fork
of Granite Creek for $200,000. Work
will begin shortly.
Charlie Lambert will soon be down to
bedrock on Granite creek. He has already takeu some gold nuggets from the
rim, also platinum.
A gang of carpenters are at work on
the coal tipple and miners are engaged
in the coal mine. At first about fifty
tons per day will be required by the
railway.
; R. Fitzgerald was in town from Whip-
saw last week and is satisfied that the
new camp will be a permanent one. One
of the peculiarities of the mineral deposits there is the scattered ore to be
found in the wash. Apparently stringers
of iron, silver and lead ores, throngh
oxidization, have been deposited, indicating proximity of the mother lode.-
Ben Baker went up to Whipsaw last
Thursday to prospect on his claim. He
has not fully recovered from injuries received from a stumbling horse, but the
magnetic influence of ore, especially the
kind he has on his claim, drew him away
to the hills.
Hugh Kennedy was in town this week
showing some beautiful samples of amethyst which he discovered near the Similkameen above Frida>' Creek. The
stones are in clusters, of a very pretty
pale violet. As a gem the amethyst is
esteemed very highly by connoisseurs
and held in superstition by others as a
preventative of intoxication. Aside
from the rare value of these stones another illustration is afforded of the profusion with which Nature has endowed
Princeton district in minerals.
S.S. CHILDREN'S DAT.
The annual Sunday' School Children's
Day observed throughout Canada on the
26th inst., was held at Princeton on that
day at n a m. There was a fair attendance of children and friends at the service. 'Tell me the Old, Old Story' was
effectively sung by Misses Gladys and
Doris Lyall. The pastor gave a short
address on 'What has the Bible done for
Us.' The collection was for Sunday
School work among the French and the
Indians of Labrador, as well as other
parts of Canada, and amounted to $7.05.

Mrs. Dr. Westwood arrived yesterday
from Coleman, Alberta.
Kamloops citizens have given the board-'
of trade $500 for publicity purposes.
All arrangements are completed for the
Orangemen's ball to be held on October
ist. This dance will be one of the best
given in the Similkameen for some time.
Those who have not received ah invitation should get one from one of the committee, uamely: Avery, jr., P. Russell,
Len Huston. W. Wilson, W. Martin. The
Committee having had such a large list
of names someone might have been forgotten. Admission, ladies fret, gentlemen $1.00.—Com.

Mrs. Hugh Hunter leaves for the coast
via Nicola on Thursday on a visit to her
mother for about six weeks.
Messrs. Coote, Wilsons, Evans and
Girvan returned last week to Chilliwack
after seeing the Similkameen, Nicola
and. Okanagan districts. They all said
•great country* in summing up what they
had observed. They all took back horses
Mr. Girvan purchasing a fine half entire
one for breeding purposes.
Star has received a letter from a wife
in the Middle Similkameen asking it to
intercede for her and publish certain of
her grievances. Had the Star the wisdom of a Solomon it would not care to
attempt adjustment of domestic disturbances. It has troubles enough in exposing public wrongs and political evils
without mixing up in family affairs.
A. Hickling arrived from Rossland on
Monday on his annual visit to Canadian

LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE
METHODS CONTRASTED.
The willingness with which private members and  ministers of the
Conservative  government  of B.C.
conform  to  the wishes of the sov-
ereigri people is in striking and sensible contrast to the insensate, stubborn  opposition of certain Liberal
. representatives and  the officials ot
at least one  department at Ottawa.
I^et one' illustration suffice.    Many,
months  ago   rightful  request was
made b$fcitizens  of Princeton   for
a telephone exchange,  the  same as
had been given to other towns along
the government line.    It is familiar
history to all how the superintendent of the line  wrote  to the Board
of Trade asking  for  the  name of
some  recommended  person  to become agent here; how, on receiving
that name from the Board he^ without any explanation aud apparently
on his own initiative,, made,a totally
different appointment; how the required number of subscribers for an
exchange  were   obtained  about  a
year ago and still it is not in operation ; how  this  big, little superintendent  ignores  the  people's convenience and  evidently expects his
underlings  to  do  the same ; how,
contrary  to  the  expressed wish of
the post office inspector, he  locates
telephone  for public use    in  post
office  where every word  of a private message may  be heard by bystanders : All this* andtnuch more
indicates  a sad want of tact ati'd a
total  absence- »of common courtesy
or a desire to meet tbe popular wish
in  rhe"'conduct  of  institutions  or
works owned by the people.
Contrast  the  liberal  fungi that
cling  in   deadly  embrace   to   the
the government and gives the people eminent satisfaction.    How different  with  the Superintendent of
the telephone line?    He ignorantly
slights the Board of Trade, confers
with  no one except  those of the
fungi  specie  in  his  own  poliHJS|
circle,  promises and never fulfils,
in real Napoleonic style makes a
man telephone  agent  although he
does not want  the job, and is generally    unpopular  because   of   his
mismanagement  of  the  telephone
line.    Of course a good deal of this
mismanagement    may   be   due  to
overwork, (it is said Stevens manages or controls private owned telephone systems in  Peachland, Sum-
merland and Penticton.)
Readers can form their own conclusions   after  making comparison
of   tbe   Liberal  and  Conservative
methods  of serving  the  public in
this district.    On the  Liberal  side
domineering,   dogmatic   officialism
with   inefficient   service:   on   the
Conservative  side  courtesy, attention   and   general  satisfaction with
the.conduct of public'works.    Is it
any    wonder "that    disintegration
should be  so plainly observable in
Liberal circles during the late mem-
brers reign of four  years, while he
and   his   henchmen    overrode  the
wishes  of the people ?    Liberal, as
Star is, it is not blind to its duty to
point out errors of its party leaders
for    permitting   a   condition   that
would wreck any party.    Seceding
Liberals may be found  by the hundred   in    every    district   of   Yale-
Cariboo,   aye,   in   every   district of
the province.    What  is the cause ?
Not because of any change   in   political view or allegiance but because
of the  rottenness, 1 incapacity   arid
insufferable 'arrogance  of sbnie'of
the officials . and at  least one member! of fobe'late 'solid seven.'

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Tbe man who leads must not wince at
the pin pricks he is sure to get in the
back by his jealous enemies.
If you are   depressed,  read  the 27th j
Psalm.   If vour purse is empty, read the!
37th Psalm.    If  you   are   losing confidence in people, read the 13th of I. Co--
rinthians.    If neighbors   seem unkind,
read the 15th  of John.   If you are discouraged about your work read the 126th
Pseltu.   If yon find  the world growing
small and yourself great,  read the 19th
Psalm.   If you cannot have your own j
way in everything, say nothing, and read I
the 3rd of James.   If you are all out of j
sorts, read the 12th of Hebrews and also'
read the Star you have paid for and not
a borrowed one.
The knocker and backcapper must be
aware of that old truism : With what
measure you mete it shall be measured to
you again with some interest added.
