Mr. Geo. Rogers left on Sunday's stage^

he intends prospecting with a diamond

From Spence's Bridge Mr. Rogers goes

WANTED-A ROAD.
It is well within the memory of many
who read this how easy it ha* been in the
past to secure appropriations from our
governments for the sole benefit of individuals who had a pull, and when we
contrast this with the efforts made in past
years to secure a road for the settlers living between Princeton and Aspen Grove
on One Mile Creek, it seems impossible
to believe we are living under the rule of
responsible government.
The Star, in urging upon our representative, Denis Murphy, M. P. P., the
great necessity of securing a sufficient
sum this session to construct a road at
least to Burns' ranch, has the endorsa-
tion of  the electors of  this very import

he had reached a point where nature compelled him to build a piece
of level road—and he wept.

"Reports from Ottawa are to the effect that the Dominion government
has decided and will shortly announce its selection of coal lands in
the Crow's Nest Pass. From all
that can be learned the coal areas
selected are favorably situated, especially as regarding the quality of
the coal, and an opening for its sue
cessful operation.
'' So valuable are the lands.select

recoup the government for its subsidy of $3,000,000 to the B. C.

of several million dollars.

A NICE JOB.
Running a newspaper is a nice
job. If we publish jokes, people
will say we are rattle-brained ; if
we don't, we are an old' fossil. It
-we publish original matter, they
say we do not give enough selections ; if we give selections, they
say we are too lazy to write. If we
do not go to church we are heathens ; if we do we are hypocrits. If
we remain in the office, we ought
to get out and hustle lor locals ; if
we go out we are not attending
our. business.
The
ead
the ore still holds its value.
A strike was made on the' Iron
Horse on Ten Mile last week. In
drifting at the 50 foot level a foot
of solid shipping ore was ecounter-
ed which has remained with them
ever since.
