PRINCETON CELEBRATION  Big Crowd From Similkameen Valley  Helps  Princeton  Honor Canada's  Natal   Day  More expert thinking  has gone into themaking  of the Monarch than any-  type writer sold. That is  why it demands little or  no thought from the owner or the user. That is  why it is the typewriter  your best stenographer  deserves and your poorest-  stenographer needs.  The Monarch Typewriter  Company, Ltd.  98 King Street West, Toronto.  A. MEGRAW, local Agent  VANCOUVER  EXHIBITION  Augu st  15th to 20th, 1910  VANCOUVER, B.C.  $30,000 IN PRIZES AND  PREMIUMS  Dominion Day afforded opportunity  for a fine outing and as the Sports  Committee at Princeton had .decided  on a one" day celebration there was  every encouragement tor those who  could get away to take advantage of  the traiti service which ' was changed  for the day to suit excursionists.  The ecursion train ��������� from the south  carried about 200 excursionists from  Oroville, Keremeos and Hedley, and  these with the .number who drove  from here to be in time for the forenoon sports aud to remain for the  dance, represented a large outside attendance from down the valley in ad-  titiou to the many who drove in from  the west, and as a result the town of  Princeton was filled with pleasure-  seekers.  The weather was all that could be  desired for the earlier part of the day,  and it did not commence to rain until  well on in the afternoon when it interrupted the baseball, game, at the  seventh inning but by that time the  game had become so one-sided that it  had lost interest.  The crowd was orderly and the services of the Oroville brass band lent  additional interest and enjoyment.  THE TllAP SHOOTING  Only two teams entered for the  Shatford cup, the Keremeos shooters  who.were holders of the cup having  no team in the field and thus allowing  it to go by default. The contesting  teams were Hedley and Princeton and  the latter won easily, taking 77 birds  out of 100 while Hedley secured hut 40.  The individual scores were:  GRANITE CREEK COAL  Strong  Company  Takes Hold and Important Developments May be  - Looked For  TOO FEW MAIL CLERKS  Specially Low Hates from all  points on Railways and Boats.

But the most interesting part of it  was the shoot for the individual prizes  Although Keremeos had no team in  the cup contest Ed. Richter was there  and tied with "Waterman for first  place, breaking 22 out of 25. It became necessary for them to shoot off  to decide it, Waterman leading off.  and getting his bird and Richter followed and did likewise and thi.s went  on for seven consecutive shots each  and Waterman goins the eighth consecutive shot without missing but  Richter-.missed the eighth and left  Waterman winner of the first prize  with Richter and Irwin for second  and third.  HASEBALL  The only teams in the baseball tournament were Oroville and Princeton,  but the latter were no match for the  players from Oroville who won the  game by a score of 10 to 0.

He is full of  enthusiasm for the old company which  is the prime favorite with the insuring  public of Canada, being its tho only  purely mutual Canadian Company  licensed to do business in Canada. As  such it is the only Canadian company  entirely owned and controlled hy its  policy holders and distributing every  cent of its profits among its policyholders.     This company  is now in its  forty-first year during which time it  has increased its annual income from  $5,000 to $2,000,000 and its interest income each year now exceeds its death  losses by over .$275,000. That is the  kind of a company to get in on while  you have youth and health on your  side to enable you to get in.  ADVERTISE   IN   THE    GAZETTE  Contracts  For   Coast Section  Let and  Construction  Camp  Put  In���������Vancouver Headquarters For  Coast District.  VANCOUVER, June 29���������Operations  on the construction of tke Canadian  Northern in the province practically  started this morning whim a gang of  40 men was sent from Vancouver to  prepare railway camps at Port Mann  and other points. The men were engaged by C. V. dimming:., construction agent for the Northern Construction company of Winnipeg, which has  the contract for 00 miles oast of New  Westminster.  The Canadian Northern interests on  the coast will make headquarters at  Vancouver having engaged two floors  of the Burns block for offices. A.D.  McRae, managing director of the  Dunsmuir collieries company states  that the offices of that concern will be.  transferred from Victoria to these  quarters.  (Nelson News)  W. L. Parish, formerly a prominent  grain broker of Winnipeg, and more  recently one of tlie principal figures in  the Western Canada Flour Mills of St.  Boniface and Brandon, passed through  Nelson this week, Avith his family,  bound for Princeton on the V. V...&  E. railway, the line which tlie Great  Northern is building to Vancouver  through southern British Columbia.  Mr. Parish is now out of the grain  trade, and has turned his attention  to the cifcil measures of this province,  and he proposes to spend the next  three months, with his family at the  site of the Tulameen coal measures,  in the Similkameen, in which, with  Winnipeg and Vancouver associates,  he is now heavily interested.   '  '"The Columbia Coal & Coke company, Limited, is . the incorporated  name of our company"said Mr. Parish  "which has an authorized capital  stock of $2,000,000. It is the intention  of the company to float a bond issue  of $500,000 in the early future, and in  fact, when T left Winnipeg, I understood that a purchaser had practically  been obtained for it already. The directors of the company are James W.  Bettes, of Winnipeg; T. J. Johnston,  Daniel Donald and .T. E. Gray, of Vancouver, and myself.  BUYS OUT TULAMEEN p  Last September we purchased the  large coal holdings of .the Tulameen  Coal & Coke company. Limited, at  Princeton, comprising a tract of 3,520  acres of bituminous coal lands. The  seam is about 15 feet thick, and comes  to the surface about 800 feet above the  valley. About 4 000 feet of entries are  now in existence, and the company  proposes now to tunnel into the seam  from the foot of the slope. L. P. Fraser, who opened the International  mine at Coleman, has been engaged as  manager and he will push the work  of development rapidly. A complete  modern plant will be installed and we.  expect within a year to be raising 500  tons a day. When it reaches a full  capacity, this figure will become .1,500  tons a day.  "We employed some very able engineers to go over the property, Alex.  Falls, of Vancouver; Fred B.Smith,  of Edmonton, and W. L. Hamilton, of  Frank, A.lta. As a result we know  that the coal is a good grade of bituminous coal, good for either steam or  coking purposes. The estimates of  our coal content vary from 40,000,000  to 120,000,000 tons.  COMMERCIAL- PROPOSITION  "We believe we have, a fine commercial proposition. By Dec. 1st we  will have Great Northern steel laid to  our property, on Granite creek, and  that.will bring us 100 miles nearer to  Spokane than is Lethbridge, while we  will, Avith the completion of the V. V.  & E., be only 130 miles from the coast.  Now, Spokane is willing to contract  for the output of the entire mines in  the Lethbridge district at good figures  and apart from the markets nearer at  home, we are practically assured a fine  market across the line.  "Apart from our own proposition,"  concluded Mr. Parish, "British Columbia, is a land of wonderful resources  and her cue, it seems to me, is to attract the capital that is the first essential to then- development."  This is Mr. Parish's second visit to  the company's property at Princeton,  he having gone over it last fall with  President Bettes.  Letters for Upper Country Go to Coast  and are then Re-shipped  Province  Because   there   are   t-)o   few   mail  clerks handling the business on the  government mail cars on Canadian  Pacific trains in the West, British Co- .  lumhia people are just now getting a  poor service in portions of their Eastern Canadian,-American and old coun-T/  try mail.  A train which arrived this morning  brought 100 sacks of mail' destined for  various places in British-Columbia  from Field west, and which should  have been handled east of the British  Columbia boundary line. The railway  mail clerks are supposed to handle all  mail destined for this province, before  the. train reaches Field. Thus a package for that place is put off as the trai n  comes through. But on thisoccasi on  as on several <������thers recently, all the  mail is brought to Vancouver in bulk  and here sorted. A letter destined for  Field gets back there about three d,.ys  late.  The matter is not a new subject of  complaint. On four or five trains during the last three weeks from forty to  eighty sacks of surplus 111,-iil have  reached here to be handled by the  mail clerks who happened to be in the  city at the time���������a system that is  neither fair to the public nor the mail  clerks.  WIRELESS FOR STEAMERS  President Taft Signs Bills Make Apparatus Compulsory for Vessels  Vancouver Province June 30th  A special United Wireless message  to The Province states that President  Taft has signed tlie Wireless Telegraph Bill making it compulsory for  boats leaving and entering American  ports to equip themselves with wireless apparatus. All vessels licensed to  carry 50 passengers or having a crew  of ten men or more must be fitced  within one year.  If the millions provided by stockholders had been put into factory  equipment, the .Company'would now  he in position to reap the full harvest  from the business which the passing  of this compulsory bill will ensure.  RAILWAY CARS IN  SUMMERLAND  Summer-land Review-  On Sunday last, about noon, the  steamer York brought down the first  barge load of cars to Summer-land.  These consisted of the piledriver, three  cars, for the workers and four others  containing lumber, etc. They tied up  at the wharf and a big crowd gathered  to witness this historical arrival,  which in years to come will he one of  the events which they will tell the  children.  Work will now be rushed forward  and cars in Suninierland will be a very  common sight in the near future. The  barge is capable of bringing eight ears  at a time, each with a capacity of 00,-  000 lbs., so that fuel durin g the next  winter will no doubt consist chiefly of  coal.  MASONIC GRAND OFFICERS  THE PRINGLE COMPANY  The   Prinijle  Stock   Co. will   open a.  short season at Eraser's Hall on Thursday, July 7th, this excellent organization is   the   oldest  stock  company   in  Canada,   having played all  tlie larger  cities in the eastern and western provinces.

It is reported that Stewart <fc Welch  have secured the contract for the Kettle "Valley line from Midway^to Penticton and work begins out of Midway  this week. '  The local passenger traffic on the  V. V. <fe E; in this valley keeps up  wonderfully and is a constant surprise  to.many' who expected.it to be very  light until the road is completed  ; through to the coast.  -Road supervisor" Turner was in town  last week looking over the work in  .progress, here and expressed no-dissatisfaction with same. If the.government gets as good value for all the  work being done over the province as  they are getting here they will bevcry  fortunate.  Armstrong is agitating incorporation. They have been organized municipally for the last IS years as a part  of the municipality of Spallumclieen,  but now they want to go. into housc-  . keeping of their own account as a  separate ��������� urban municipality and  sece.sh from the old co-partnership.  Mrs. Richter's beautiful dower garden at Keremeos is noted over the  whole valley for the beauty and variety of its flowers, and any festive  occasion from a. June wedding to an  October banquet requiring artistic adornment can always count on suitable  floral decoration. ,  "AVhat happened to Jones and  "Reaping the Harvest" are. the other  plays to be pub on by the Pringle  ���������Stock Co. after the first night on  which they open with "The Convict's  Daughter". The Pringle Stock Co.  are well known on the coast and  through the Kootonay and Bonndary  districts where they a.re favorites and  can always command good houses.  An old landmark has disappeared in  the demolition of the old bridge on  Haynes St., between the Grand Union  .and New Zealand hotels, the old dry  creek bottom being now filled in and  the roadway widened. Lest we should  forget the crazy old structure its  memory has been perpetuated by Mr.  Winkle)- who by using the timbers  and planks from it to extend the sidewalk on towards the new bridge has  turned an unsafe wagon bridge into a  "solid Muldoon" sidewalk.  During his recent trip east, Angus  Stewart, engineer at the power house,  had the privilege of visiting some fine  power plants and manufacturing industries of various kinds in Nova  Scotia and Ontario. In the former  province he was through the steel  ���������works at Sidney, but what interested  him most was the four days he spent  in the Niagara peninsula, going through  the big Electrical power plants at the  Falls and the factories at Well and including the Cordage works and Electric Smelter.  John Pringle. of the Pringle Stock  Co., was in town the latter end of last  week making arrangements for his  company which opens here to-night  (Thursday) in the play "Tlie Convict's  Daughter". He was still a bit crippled  after his accident described in last issue by our Keremeos correspondent,  and he was very fortunate indeed that  he got off so easily. Now if it bail  been tliat Clanam fellow who was  here a fortnight ago, and he had lit  on that hump of cantaiikerousness.  there would have been some eternal  fitness about the thing, but for "a  good sort" and a clever artist like  Pringle to get such a mauling was  rather too bad.  Where  every   business in a town is  represented   by an. ad.

The secret to do that is to think  what you  want the public to know  about  your   business   and   foithwith  proceed    to  make    your   advertising  space tell  them  that in  the pitliie>t  way yoir know how.  Mr. Camsell has, returned to the  Tiilainec-n where he is doing Mime  more special geological work in connection with platinum and coal deposits, that will take him abouttfiveor  six weeks niid'on completion of it he  may be able to spend a few days here  looking over niore recent developments on the Nickel Place which will  afford further" data that ..may furnish  iiiaterial for a supplementary paper  on the camp. ,  Miss Fraser, nurse, at the Hedley  Hospital has recently been awarded  the/irold medal, having stood at the  head of her class when she graduated  as nurse from the Vancouver General  Hospital. She was offered transportation .tov attend the closing exercises  held there a few days ago but could  i lot in tin age to get away. St ran ge to  say,, in these days when we are all  given more or less to blowing our own  horns, Miss Fraser said nothing to  anyone here of the honor she had won  aikl liadthe news not come to town  from other, sources, her modesty would  have prevented recognition on the  part! of her friends in Hedley of the  honor which her knowledge and skill  had enabled her to win.

French, Secretary and Manager - HEDLEY, B.C.  rill  mr  ���������On Monday last Peter Sten who had  his   kliee cap   shattered   about   two  months ago and has been in the hospital ever since, was taken  out by Fred  Fulcher and. F. Ericson at his request  and conveyed  to the general hospital  in  Spokane  where it is; expected the  leg  will have  to   be amputated.    To  meet the expense connected with his  ������������������removal a, subscription list' was circulated   up afc the mine and in Hedley  and  something   over   $500   collected.  The removal was generally believed to  have been  an unnecessary  expense as  the amputation could have been quite  as well dona here and the nurses here  would give   him better attention than  he can  possibly hope for in the hospital in  Spokane  where nurses  will be  too busy to  give the special attention  to any particular   patient which could  "nowlie given him here.    However, it  was  his wish  and   the,  wish gratified  may do him as much good as closer attention   here  and the  discontent that  always goes with a wish thwarted.  Another evidence of superintendent  Jones', determination to  have a plant  that can be counted on for the highest  degree of  efficiency   is   the   changes  completed last week at centra! station  on the  gravity  tram.    To do this no  more machinery had to be procured���������  merely a. common  sense adaptation of  what appliances were  to hand and by  means of these an alternative arrangement in the  headgear is secured  by  which    those    provoking    periodical  hang-ups on  the tramway that have  been   occurring   with   such irregular  regularity,  will  in  the future be obviated.    A wheel which was discarded  in Lamb's  regime  because it  was not  working satisfactorily owing to faulty  installation has now been rebored and  replaced  and an  extra, cable attached  by which the  load can be switched on  to an  alternative gear in case tho old  offender goes on strike.    The monthly  tonnage has increased very materially  over   anything that    has   heretofore  been done and  this has  put an  extra  duty upon   the tramway.    When this  has been   done Avith   the same plant a  still  greater  task   will be  thrown on  the tramway   with the  installation of  the tube  mills  and  other  equipment  which   has  boon  designed to increase  the'output and reduce ribe loss in saving to a minimum,  and to  meet  this  extra duty Mr. Jones  has been devoting more attention to the head-gears,  with a,  view to   being prepared for all  contingencies.

Erosion of Quartz Veins Not the Sole  Source of Auriferous Alluvial Strata  The Pringle. Stock Company commenced a three nights' stand in the  town hall last evening by presenting  the "Convict's Daughter" to a small  audience. From a. financial standpoint the opening evening was a decided failure but as an advertisement  of the clean, wholesome class of performance which this company presents  it beats all the large hills and dodgers  scattered around town and should  draw good houses for the remaining  nights when they present "Reapiug  the Harvest" and "What Happened  to Jones". Their itinerary takes them  from here up the valley and to our  friends at Hedley and Princeton, who  enjoy a good evening's entertainment  we would say "don't iniss a night."  Keremeos was a deserted town on  Friday, July 1st, the loyal citizens,  who did not take in the celebrations  held at either Princeton or Penticton  attended the picnic at Ashnola. Those  who spent the day at Princeton were  vastly pleased, perhaps as much with  the quick and comfortable means of  conveyance which they were able to  enjoy instead of the long dusty drive  of the old days, as with the excellent  day's sport provided. In the latter  our town was not well represented  neither the baseball team nor gun  club taking part, while many of the  best horses from here were taken to  Penticton t" compete. However everybody who spent the day in the upper  valley was well satisfied.  Along a wild  mountain   trail,   by a  wild foaming stream, the  brave little  band   laden with spoils  struggled on.  For  miles  they had  hurried  beneath  towering cliff and rugged peak till the  last ravine was passed  and  the  final  raging  torrent was  forded,   and they  reined    in    their loam-flecked   steeds  under the  lofty pines of  the Ashnola.  Here,- where the  luscious  Olalla berries hung  in massive  clusters  on   the  bushes was their rendezvous, and they  numbered      seventy     sturdy     souls.  But  this  was   no  cohort  of   lawless  freebooters  or reckless   bandits,   but  the   Kerenieos   Sunday  School    that  sought a holiday on the Ashnola, July  1st.    How the children enjoyed them-  ���������selves on that glorious day!   They fed  on the juicy berries, and waded in the  creeks.     A. banquet was spread under  the    shady   trees   midst   shouts   and  laughter.     Football was tried but the  cacti   pierced  the pigskin,   but  there  were  other games  galore;  there were  races and  contests and  prizes for  the  winners, a passing shower hut added  to the fun.     With the exception of an  accident or two when  the rigs crossed  a deep but warm ditch the day was a  must successful   one and the   heavy  showei that came as the picnic broke  up was not sufficient to dampen  the  good cheer.  The current theory of the formation  of gold-bearing alluvial deposits assumes that the gold existed-originally  in the central neucleiis of the earth in  thtv forms of sulphide and telluride,  which subsequently became dissolved  in the waters of hot springs and were  deposited together with gelatinous silica. Thus were formed veins of auriferous quartz which, in consequence of  erosion, gave rise to alluvial strata  containing particles of metallic gold.  Mr. Fieux, however asserts that the  erosion of outcropping auriferous veins  of quartz does not account i'or all deposits of metallic gold. He finds that  some gold bearing strata show no trace  of quartz, but consist wholly of clay  with fragments of diorite or diabase,  and moreover .are so situated as to  preclude the'existence of quartz veins.  He has seen beds of streams become  richer in gold after every rain, though  they showed no trace of quartz. Finally, in certain auriferous strata which  contain much <|oartz, not a particle of  gold is found in the quartz, though  some gold occurs in the diabase which  accupies it.  Hence. Fieux concludes that the erosion of quartz veins cannot be the sole  source, of auriferous alluvial strata  and, furthermore, that the almost  constant, presence, in those, strata, of  heavy basic rocks, containing diorite,  amphibolic schist and diabase, indicates that native gold is one of the  subsidiary ingredients  of those rocks.  According to this new theory, therefore, certain of the heavy eriiptive.  rocks have carried.with them in their  eruption some of the gold existing in  the metallic state in the central nucleus of the earth. After reaching the  surface, these rocks were oxidized by  contact with the air and eroded by  water, which washed away the lighter  materials and left the heavier, including the gold.  . This Mr. Fieux regards as the true  theorv ol* the formation of gold-bearing alluvial strata, in general, the erosion of quartz veins being only an occasional cause of the enrichment of  those strata.  The above which is taken from a  mining paper will excite no wonder in  Camp Hedlev which with an output  of over three millions in gold can safely say that not an ounce of it has  come from a quartz vein deposit and  of the millions that must have been  eroded off and gone down the Siniilkameen from the Nickle Plate hill a very  large portion of it has also come from  auriferous sedimentary and eruptive  rocks and the smaller part of it from  auriferous quartz ledges.
