MINING MEN ON MOVE
TOWARD CAMPS IN
LIMELIGHT H
MOTES  ANI.   MOII. €.
Col. Robert Stevenson left last Monday
in answer to an urgent telegram to meet
prominent mining men at Vancouver
now making a trip through the province.
He will try to induce them to come to
Princeton, if possible, for the purpose of
showing them some of the abundant re-
ources of the Similkameen.
Ralph S. G. Stokes, representing the
Onadian Mining and -Exploration Company, limited, of 43 Exchange Place,
New York, arrived in Princeton last
Saturday. He came to meet the geologists and Mr. Camsell and visit with them
tht various camps and prospects. His
disappointment was great when he
learned that the trip of the geologists
had been cancelled. After consulting
vears ofthe Star's files he decided that
tht- country was well worth investigating
without the geologists and in company
with E. F. Voigt visited Voigt Camp and
Copper Mountain. From here, he goes
to Alaska to report on certain properties
there before hard winter weather sets iu.
He will reserve time tc pay a second visit
here as soon as possible. The Canadian
Mining and Exploration Company is one
ofthe strongest financial and investing
companies in America, among its directors being such men as Sir Edmund Walk-
e , P. A. Rockefeller, Sir William MacKenzie, Sir E. B. Osier, J. R. DeLamar,
etc.
S. C. McLean, of the geological department, Ottawa, is establishing triang-
ulation points in Princeton district, for
the purpose of making a detaijed mineral
map of the country later on. Mr. Cam-
sell is expected here in a week or two to
proceed with his regular geological
work,
J. Knudson and H. B. Mausette have
returned from their Iceland spar deposit
at Ashnola and brought some samples.
Besides the splendid qualities of this spar
for the manufacture of cement it is used
for glazing highgrades of earthenware
and porcelain. Iceland spar in a Dure
state is worth $6 per pound.
' P. W. Gregory, P. L. S., is making a
large map of Copper Mountain, Voigt
Camp and Kennedy Mountain.
J. L. Retallack. mining investor, visited Voigt Camp, Copper Mountain, Whip-
saw camp aud Leadville. His time was
very limited as he had an engagement in
Vancouver. He is collecting a lot of
mining data, maps and general information to he used as the basis of investment.
Am.,ng the changes reported in the re
organization of the Columbia Coal &
Coke Co., Coalmont, are the retirement
of Director W. L. Parish and Manager G.
L. Fraser. It is said that work will be
carried on toward making the mine an
errly producer of coal and coke.
RAILWAY POINTS.
President J.J.Warren and Chief Engineer McCullough of the Kettle Valley
were on last Monday's train going to
Coalmont.
- The Burns and Stevens survey parties
are still locating line between Aspen
Grove and Fivemile creek.
The railway commission has ordered
V. V. & E. officials to push the work of
construction with more energy. More
men are being put on the job.
One hundred men are now employed
as carpenters and bridge framers in the
Kettle Valley yards at Carmi.
The steel gang on the Kettle Valley
line have now reached a point'fifteen
miles beyond Carmi.
It is estimated that $500,000 will be
disbursed in wages at Hope in connect
tion with the construction of the raUwayf
in Coquihalla pass.
A stone no bigger than a man's head
rolled off the e'mbankmeut onto the V.
V. & E. track just as the daily train was
passing on Saturday a mile below Princeton and caused a smashup that will cost
the railway about $200. Brakeman Sil-
vernail was severely bruised and shaken
up but is recovering nicely at his home
Oroville. Two flat cars and the cowcatcher were damaged. The wreckage
delayed the train some twelve hours and
some ofthe mail matter was hung up until Monday forenoon.
J. H. Kennedy, chief of construction
on the V. V.& E., was in town Wednesday accompanied by L. M. Hale and
Supt. McDcffigall.
OBITUARY.
The passing away of Mrs. J. Gersing
yesterday afternoon removes one whom
to know was a pleasure. "Always kindly
and cheerful, though suffering from a
snpposedly incurable complaint, she
made many friends. She was a native of
Stockholm, Sweeden, and had a sister,
Mrs. Anderson, here. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. J. A Gillam.
and was largely attended. Star voices
very general sympathy fo_ the bereaved
husband and sister.
Born—On Friday 22nd inst., the wife

TOWN AND  DISTRICT
The Princess moving picture show has
been running under difficulties, the engine acting in a manner that would provoke profanity in a saint. It will run
lovely on trial in the day but when required to do its nocturnal stunt it gets
nasty and bucks occasionally. It is npt
unlikely that the trouble has now been
overcome and this popular amusement
again drawing full houses.
From a source which can be relied
upon and authoritative a great danger
to young boys exists in the gathering of
empty bottles. Temptation to steal them
is always present when the bottles are
found on back premises, stair landings,
etc., and the drink habit may be easily
formed in young boys from sippings in
bottles. In th ir eagerness to obtain bot •
ties boys have been observed loitering in
the company of drinkers in secluded
places ready to snatch the empties, Our
informant points otit these real dangers
for the boys' sakes, leaving the matter
entirely with the parents to remedy.
Work on the Hope-Princeton section
of the transprovincial road has been ordered to stop tomorrow, Aug. 30, on the
Hope end at Silver creek: Five miles
have been graded out of 34 to build from
Hope. Of the 34 to build from Princeton about 15 miles have been graded and
cleared. It is not known when work
will stop at the Princeton end. Money
is tight.
Next Monday, Sept. i, is Labor Day
and a lawful holiday. The . celebration
in Hedley is sure to be well patronized.
J. A. Freeman has proven the adaptability of the soil and climate at his suburban home to grow very fine / vegetables
and suiall fruits in abundance. Cur um-
be__vmarrow, citrons, French beans, sugar oeet, sunberry, broad beans, celery
all grow to perfection. Flowers flourish
in beautiful profusion and a certain
wealth of color, among them being asters, English lavender.mignonette, phlox
Drummondii, sweet sultan and sweet
peas. Mr. and Mrs. Freeman are enthusiastic gardeners and their experimentations will be of general interest and
value.

The British parliament was prorogued
on the 15th, and will not reconvene until
February next unless something extraordinary happens.
Turkey now defies the big powers and
will keep her claws tightly around Ad-
rianople.
The horrors of war were appaling in the
Balkans, where orgies, massacres and rapine characterized the Bulgarian soldiery.
An important change in the TJ. S. parcel post service went into effect August'
15th, increasing the weight of packages
that may be sent short distauces, and decreasing the rates on packages delivered
within a few miles of the post office
where they are mailed. Previously the j
weight limit has been eleven pounds, but
hereafter the post office department will
carry packages that weigh as high as
twenty pounds for delivery in the second
zone.
Mr. Lloyd George, during a speech on
the finance bill in the House of Commons, gave grave warning to Europe in
the course of a passionate attack upon
the*) development of armaments. The
nations, he declared, were scaring one
another to death, and in no country was
there a party which dared face the unpopularity of making a change or accepting the responsibility of undertaking a
reduction.
The result of the census made in Italy
in 1911 has just beeri published by the
government. It shows a total population
of 34,681,387 and illiterates constitute 38
percent of it. The region that gives the
smallest per centage of illiterates is Piedmont, with 11 percent., while the maximum is reached by Calabria, with 70 per
cent.
Italy will take part in the Panama-

Mears, representing the New York Evening Sun, has reduced the record by nearly four days below that made by A.

achievement was greatly assisted by the
hearty co-operation of the various transportation companies, who by means of
special trains endeavored to reduce delays due to unavoidable accidents

ASSISTANCE WELL PLACED
The province of Alberta is taking
liberal measures tp provide the highest, type of agriculturist for tilling
its rich, broad acres. Intensified
farming is necessary to preserve the
.productive qualities of the soil, for
if only wheat and other grains are
grown the soil will soon deteriorate.
Mixed farming is the system which
replenishes the soil and provides
those necessary articles of food such
as beef, pork, mutton, poultry, butter and eggs. Not only does mixed
or intensified farming replenish the
soil but it must fill the purse with
money which now goes to other
countries for food supplies. It is
to stay this outflow of money and
impoverishment of the soil that the
neighbor province of Alberta is!
about to provide free teaching in
the art of mixed farming.
British Columbia might well profit from the example set by Alberta.
No other province consumes foreign
and outside food products to the
extent per capita that B. C. does.
Whatever steps may be taken to
stop the drain will be well repaid in
increased wealth and thrift. In this
connection the thought is presented
that a portable college or school
giving practical demonstrations of
the adaptability of wet and dry,
cool and hot, lowland and highland
districts, would answer all purposes.
The college being portable a new
district could be selected each growing seasou, thus covering the varying climates and soil peculiarities
of the productive portions of the
province.
What  is   thus, skeletonized with
reference to agriculture may with
equal merit be applied to mining.
Owing to the physical structure of
this-province mining will constitute,
its backbone, be the main resource
upon which other and allied industries will depend. Only the fringe
of mining has been touched so far.
Enough is known, however, to warrant the expenditure of public
money in further encouragement of
private enterprise and the establishment of a mining school for the
education of men and women in
those technical branches requisite
for discovery and extraction of
.minerals.    In  some  countries  the
government provides free assays for
prospectors and tuition in mining at
and even below cost. In Australia
portable assay kits are given in
charge of competent assayers who
travel about the country affording
valuable information to anyone having likely samples. In the Similkameen there are thousands of promising samples found in near and
remote corners which should be
tested but owing to the expense of
time and money are thrown aside.
Prospectors in the hills, not those
of the armchair variety, are deserving of every reasonable assistance
and encouragement and it is doubtful if a more practical way could be
devised than in the manner described. Our governments bonus,
subsidize, protect and- grant special
privileges to big railway and mining corporations and professional
bodies : why not bonus and legislate a little for the honest farmer
and the poor prospector ?
Conditions for a mining school at
Princeton cannot be excelled. Here
are coal, ore and placers, and a field
of varied mineral resources which
we venture to say cannot be duplicated in extent or variety in any
one part of the world. Some recognition of this fact should be taken
by the federal and provincial ministers of mines. The idea is progressive, in practice increased revenues and growing population.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The rumor originating from interested and opposing outside districts that the transprovincial road
would not be completed via Princeton and Hope mountains is one,
without a shred of foundation. A
direct route to the coast and one
which will give access to a rich
mineral, timber and grazing section is under construction now and
cannot be changed. It is the route
sanctioned by the government and
emphatically endorsed by the Minister of public works. Change that
route to please .Vernon, Kamloops
and Merritt! Ridiculous! Look at
a man and see the zigzag route that
would be necessary to touch these
places and cross the province. The
present route is good enough for
the Similkameen ; if it is changed
one hairbreadth out of its natural
and proper course there will be one
of the biggest, highest kicks ever
recorded on the pages of profane
history.    Now!
The armament .craze is still as
' insensate' as ever. How long
will the nation impoverish its people in huge military preparations,
ready to spring at its neighbor as a
wild animal leaps at its prey ? The
navy building folly of two big nations should cease before the treasuries are empty.
It is time the Mexican civil war
was regulated by game laws.

DRILLING CONTEST
Editor Star—Sir : Considerable indignation has been caused on Copper
mountain by the rules governing the
rock drilling contest at Hedley Labor
Day celebration. . By these rules they
exclude the Copper mountain team from
that contest and the general opinion here
is that that was the object. The team
here have been practising with a set of
steel used by a He'dley team at the
Princeton first of July celebration, on the
good faith that they were eligible in any
contest. They cannot now get auother
set of steel in time so have been obliged
to drop out of the contest.
Not being an expert on such matters I
cannot vouch for it, but am of the opinion
'that as a general rule in rock drilling
contests -a set of steel is bona, fide, provided theffl-ijIM-ng qnu is ^ inch.on'' the
bit. Hedley has lost nothing through
previous contests with Copper mountain
sa_d could well afford to let them enter
for this one.
Some amusement was caused here by.
the article which appeared in the Hedley
Gazette on the challenge contest of July
rath. We were not aware tbat hammer
concussion and water soakage had the
effect on the Tock which the author of
that article so learnedly explained. Hedley won that contest through sheer bull
luck as any one who has seen the two
teams in action knows. Trusting you
will find room in your valued paper for
this, I am,
Sincerely yours

AN UNTRUTHFUL EDITORIAL
Star has been requested to give ;'.i.
following publication so that the puhiic
ma\ be corrected of any false impressions
made by the article quoted. A newspaper ought to be very gnarded in its
comments regarding financial conditions
during these times of stringency:
'Moose Jaw, Sask., July 29.— The City
Council has passed a resolution unanimously condemning a local paper, The
Evening Times, for its front page editorial jon the financial conditions of the city
In part, the resolution reads as follows:
"That this Council desires to place on
record its strong disapproval on the article published recently, owing to its gross
misstatements of local conditions, wherein the credit ot the city and .its business
men is impugned, and that a copy of this
resolution be forwarded to the Board of
Trade with the request that support be
given this motion with a view to restoring confidence in the city which has been
seriously impaired by the publication
aforesaid."_
'Moose Jaw Sask., July 29.-—Mayor
Pascoe emphatically denies the report;
published in a local paper announcing;
that the city's bankers have refused to
accept cheques drawn by the city. "Anv
inconvenience that has been experienced;
in connection with the city'y financial
arrangements has been caused by our inability to disposg of the city's debentures," said the Mayor.'
