WHIPSAW ALL RIGHT
Camp Makes Good  in High
Assays and Inviting
to CapiMi^l
Wagon Road would Facilitate Development—Ore May be Hauled
to Princeton. "^ra
Whipsaw has sprung into public notice
purely on its merits and every week is
prolific with solid, tangible results which
add to the*fascination and attractiveness
of the camp. There is not'a "'wildcat' in
the whole camp, ore being traceable to
every location. If ever thereMvas a mining camp that could 'make good' on so
little prospecting and development it
must have been due to the handiwork
of nature and not to manual labor. Beginning at the top of the ground and
with every mark of continuity as prospect holes are sunk, there is no lack of
quautity and quality. The experienced
eye readily dejects the va:ious and infal-
l.ble signs which denote a 'poor man's
camp.' One has only to look and be
convinced that here is both latent and
conspicuous mineral wealth. Capital
usually follows in the wake of progressive, intelligent labor and Whipsaw is
luckv in having little to do to induce
this handmaid of labor to invest.
Sam Spencer Jaifd associates^'owning
the S & M and M & S mineral claims
h ive recently received assays from the
Denver Metallurgical Co. which most
satisfactorily settles the question of values
thus far on these claims. Assay for five
metals resulted as follows: Tellurium?
nonej'ggold, 68c!; silver, 310 ozs., $155 ;
copper^i p.c, #4.80; lead, 68 p.c.$54.40;
or a total value of $214.20 per ton. Other
assays from the same unpicked ore give
relatively good results with a higher percentage of gold. These claims are on
the north side of Whipsaw Creek opposite the well known Twenty Four Hour
claim owned ,by Knight and Day. The
ledge is 100 feet wide.
Whipsaw requires a good wagon road
to enable the cheaper forwardling of
supplies and for the transportation of ore
to Princeton, the nearest railway point.
This matter ought to command the attention of the Board of Trade at its next
session,

Sunset Han Drops Into Spokane and
Says Things to Reporter on
Live Subjects.
GRANITE CREEK NEWS.
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
R A. Lambert has closed down operations on  Granite Creek gold lease and
gone to the coast.
F. P.  Cook   is taking stumps out of
McBride St., Welldo.
Miller   and   Hallowell  have stopped
golddigging for the season.
The following interview in the.Spokesman-Review is., another illustration of
J. P. McConnell's deepMnterest in everything pertaining to the progress ilf^J^e
Similkameen, and-which he has so earnestly set forth in the Saturday Sunset
Iromltime to time:
" ThefwOrking of the rich coal.mine
at "Princeton, B.C., is likely to have the
effect of reducing the price of coal in
Spokane from jSl.50 to $2 per ton,!' said
John P. McConnell, editor of the Saturday
Sunset at Vancouver, B.C., who. was in
the city yesterday.
"I was at the mines only a few days
ago and several carloads of fuel were
ready to be shipped. The company, was
waiting only for the cars. It is expected
that within a short tinie/itrain loads of
coal will be shipped out.
"All that country around Princeton
and Hedley is rich in mineral-wealth.
Only e"ight miles'northwest of Princeton
there are other valuable deposits of coal
which will be mined at no distant date
I went through the mine with a Dominion
geologist and We found, seams of great
width. This property lately was bought
by a syndicate of Vancouver capitalists.
They got it for a mere, song, payings only;
$225,000: They have-^rrfganized the
North Forks Coal Mining'Company. ■
" There are also great~copper deposits
in that vicinity. I went.through every
copper mine in the district. There has
been a general awakening up there since
the opening of the Victoria, Vancouver
& Eastern' railroad.' Abont ■ K-eremeos;
Hedley and Princeton the country is
rich in timber and there are many fine
water power sites. Keremeos is the hub
of a productive fruit country and above
Princeton the dairying industry thrives.
" It is my belief that when the Great
Northern builds its line from Brewster to
Wenatchee, Spokane will get a vast trade
with Princeton and other adjacent Canadian towns. I do not believe that it is
the intention of James T- Hill ever to
build the V.,V. &E« line into Vancouver.
If he should it wauld give Vancouver a
chance to get some of this trade and we
are entitled to it.
" When the eastern capitalists who
recently bought the Nickel Plate mine
from the Daly estate begin to work the
property it will produce millions in gold.
It is still immensely rich in gold
deposits, though it was purchased at a
nominal price, about 1725,000.
FIRST COAL SHIPPED
Two Carloads for Hedley Gold
Mines Co. Fifjst Over
V.,V,&E.Line.
V.F.M. Co. will be Ready to Supply
Consumers Abroad—Spur not
yet Completed.
The first shipment of coal from the
Vermilion Forks Co's mine is bfejrijj made
now to the Hedley Gold Mines Co. at
Hedley. This shipment is a trial order
|of two carloads and if satisfactory will
be used as the motive power in thestamp
mill at Hedley, coal supplanting the
water power now in use. With the expected enlargement to double its present
capacity of the stamp mill a large daily
tonnage of coal will be required from the
Princeton mines.
r Work on the new tipple being erected
py the V.F.M. Co. is making favorable
progress. Hoisting machinery and other
equipment necessary for modern coal
mining will be installed as soon as delivery can be effected.
Supt. Graham has minersjjat work supplying the local coal markerand making
necessary underground preparations for
mining on an extensive scale.
j Work onthe railway spur to the coal
mine is being, pushed along with vigor.
It is expected to be complete in about
two weeks.
rHIDt A!p GRAND TRDNK
?",jffAY JOIN.
| Rival surveying parties representing
the Canadian Northern and'Grand Trunk
Pacific railways are having a lively time
getting a line from Kamloops to Vancouver along the south bank of the
fraser river.
Through the Fraser canyon, east of
Yale, where the Canadian Pacific runs
along the west bank, there is room for
only one line on the eastern side, and
this has been taken by th&first survey of
■the Canadian Northern. For this reason
the Grand Trunkg/-is now looking for a
iltne running directly south from Kamloops across country between Nicola and
the Similkameen and finally striking
the Eraser west of the Hope mountains.
Three survey parties are now in the
field running trial lines- for a proposed
route via Nicola and Similkameen.
•This route might possibly indicate a
plan of the Grand Trunk Pacific to join
forces with the Vancouver, Victoria &
Eastern, a Hill road, and unite with it in
building a joint line across the mountains
and thence to Vancouver.

all engaged in fruit cultivation and
is creditable in matter and makeup.
It is published at Vancouver and is

W. J. Bryan, late Democratic
candidate for U. S. presidency, received a very flattering welcome in
Vancouver on the occasion of his
recent lecture on behalf of the
Y.M.C.A. Mr. Bryan is the greatest singlehanded uplift among the
moral forces of the day and that is
why Canadians so heartily welcome
and admire him—he is not exclusively American, he belongs to the
world.	
What is this hideous thing called
'death' that steals the little flowers
from us and turns home from smiling sunshine into utter gloom ?
Why are these innocent and spotless white torn away by this ruthless monster ? It may be to wean
those left behind from earth and
create the desire to be with the departed little ones. But for the pre-
ciousness of love and sympathy of
the living the lonely mother would
'gladly fly away to her darling. It
is as plain as noonday that earth is
not our home : beyond the grave is
the blessed hope of meeting never
to part.
Midnight; sorrow and loneliness ;
Darkness and fear my soul distress ;
Dread lest never the morn again
Shine on the darkened ways of men ;
While for the light I sigh and yearn—
Do, overhead the white stars burn ;
Aud darkness ist>eautiful—all the night
Smiles in their sweet and tranquil light.
Now the battle cry of political
war is heard throughout the land.
Guaging Mr. Shatford, M.P.P. by
his promises and performances very
few will want to exchange him for
an untried representative. He hss
made good and stayed good.
