very low freight rate for the wagon haul
between Peniicton__and Princeton. Mr.
E. Wheeler quotes a ratet-fTPs per ton,
or \% cents per lb. iTns rate, with the
reduced classification the C. P. R. is expected to offer between coast points and
Penticton, will materially reduce the
of supplies. Mr. Wheeler also quotes
the following rates on lumber from the
Princeton sawmill: To Hedley City, $ io
per iooo feet; 15 Mile, $12 per 1000 feet,
and Keremeos, $14 per 1000 feet. This
price will enable Keremeos people to lay
down rough lumber for $26 per 1000,
which is a little cheaper than they have
heen paying.
J. Tierney, of Nelson, B.C., registered
at the Hotel Tulameen on Monday night.
He expects to be in the district for some
time, having arranged to visit the principal mining camps, and incidently to
examine some of tfce coal measures. He
has been connected with the Lethbridge
Coal Co.
R. E. Smith drove a special in from
Kamloops this week, with Frank Richardson, representing John W. Peck & Co., of

The Railway Session.
A late report from Victoria states
that a special railway session of tbe
provincial legislature will take place
the
Coast-Boundary Railway, and y
will be accomplishing something
that will be of more practical benefit
to Vancouver than even a visit from
the Heir Apparent to the Imperial
Throne.
If
brings down its straight C. P. R.
monopoly policy, and attempts to
hand over all subsidies granted by
the Loan Bill to that corporation.
British Columbia muse be developed by the construction of the several lines of railway, which are recommended for aid in the Loan Bill
passed last session, but the idea of
forever keeping out lines independent of and competing with the
Canadian Pacific Railway will not
be tolerated by the right-minded
electors of the province.
The Royal Visit.
Vancouver papers are bewailing
the fact that their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of
Cornwall, are not billed to visit the
city on the Canadian trip.
Vancouver always wakes up in
time to discover the fact that some
one has done what Vancouver
might have done, as witness the
history of the Kootenay trade, the
Yukon trade, and numerous other
instances where push and grit applied at the proper time would have
resulted in direct benefit to the
city.
Don't forget the Similkameen
country, Vancouver ; we are right
at your very door, and the sooner
you help us to obtain a direct line
of railway from the Pacific coast,
the sooner will you benefit by the
large amount of business your merchants are bound to do in our country.
Keep the railroad question prominently to tbe front, don't allow the
agitation to die down, because it has
been shelved for Jthe time being,
but use your best *S©rts to bring
about the early construction of the
Our Goal Resources.
The coal basin of the Similka-
meon and Tulameen rivers covers
large area of country which  has
been well prospected this spring.
A number of claims have been
staked showing good surface crop-
pings with every indication of strong
seams underlying the wash. But a
great many claims have also been
staked with absolutely no indications of coal on the ground, the reason for staking being, presumably,
the proximity to adjoining claims
which have surface croppings.
What we wish to point out is,
that while the coal fields offer any
amount of good properties, which
have fair showings, a number of
the claims have really no value, excepting a possibility of coal being
found by boring, or an adjoining
seam extending into the location.
Several of those barren surface
locations have been offered for sale
on tbe outside market, however,
and we write this as a word of
warning to intending purchasers,
advising close inspection or enquiry
into the value of the properties offered.
One of the worst troubles a new
camp has to contend with is, that
during an excitement or boom,
numerous unscrupulous persons are
quick to take undue advantage of it
and try .and dispose of worthless
locations.
The Similkameen possesses any
quantity of mineral and coal properties, with really promising showings, without introducing the
element of " wildcating," which
often does incalculable harm to a
new camp.
Thus says the volumin*
valorous, vivacious, violent and valuable
''' Joe " Martin : " I will defend Vancouver against that vile, vixenish, ven-
id  voraciously volup
tuous V., V. & E.  villainly.

The wooer of business must use printei

" But Joseph Martin has more political
horse sense in a minute than such :
as Helnicfcen and Curtis can acquire
lifetime. He turned Curtis down, and
by so doing clipped  the claws of thi
Helmcken strikers."—Nelson Tribune.
John Houston's paper, in its bitter
animosity towards Smith Curtis, has actually taken to praising Joe Martin. Oh,
John ! John! your political career is
surely making a Joseph's (Martin's) coat
for you—a ratnbow-hued coat.
ttt
The Nelson Tribune's knowledge of
the split among the members of the provincial bouse on the railway question is
very meagre. A late editorial purporting
to give the history of the occurrence is
full of such phrases as ? " So it is said,"
"Is said to have been," etc., etc. John
Houston could confer a benefit on the
electors ofthe Nelson riding by publishing an exact account of his stand on the
railway and other questions, accompanied
by his reasons for taking the stand he
did.

The Star acknowledges with pleasure
the receipt of an early copy of the Delineator for July. This well known
fashion magazine has shown great enterprise in producing a most artistic and
beautifully illustrated number. The
color work is especially worthy of mention, the cuts of the Pan American Exhibition at Buffalo being magnificent
samples of the high standard reached by
modern color printers. The Butterick
Publishing Co. have printed an edition
of 625,000 copies, and every lady in the
Similkameen country will do well to see
that she gets one.

Mackenzie   &   Mann Purchase
Vancouver Island Property.
It is reported on good authority that
Col. Hayes' mines at Alberni. on
west coast of Vancouver Island, has been
bonded by Mackenzie & Mann for $600,-
000. The first payment on the property
is to be made on July 15th. The property is one of the largest on Vancouver Is-
land, and altogether one ofthe best on
the coast. The ore product/is mostly copper, with a little silver and gold >n it.
The immediate plans of the new owners
include the putting in of a tramway from
the mine to salt water, and a smelter will
probably be constructed next year if the
property is a success. It is said that the
deal was arranged by Hugh Sutherland,

a great amount of interesting information
about the different tribes of Indians located at Similkameen, Nicola, Spence's

Indians in the district. From his long
association with them he has unearthed a
surprising amount of knowledge of their
past and present mode of living, which

sketches and diagrams, makes most interesting reading.
