PRINCETON'S  POUTICS
Candidates Murphy and Beebe Address a Crowded Meeting:.

Chairman of the neetlng--A Lively Interest
Was Taken In the Issues of the Day.
£~c
A large audience gathe
of tlrenew hotel last Saturday . evening
to hear Mr. Denis Murphy and the Hon.
G. W. Beebe address them on political
issues.   Mr. T. Murphy of Granite Creek
Mr. D.  Murphy was introduced and
ladies present on the interest they took
in the present election, he began his address with a lengthy explanation of how

contradicted • several other statements
which he claimed the Provincial Secretary had made, and offered to bet $100
on each with the^Hon. Gentleman. In
fact, with such frequency did the offer to
put up fioo occur in Mr. Murphy's
speech that the few supporters he had in.
the audience began to wonder if he was-
not over estimating his pile.
In opposing the building of a govern-
mentrailroad trom the coast to Kootenay
Mr. Murphy's strong argument was that
the line would be an expensive one and
the government would be unable to borrow money enough to build it. He claimed the road would cost $9,000,000 to build
and increased taxation would be the result. He also laid stress upon the point
that the railroad could not be built to the
International boundary line, but would
have to stop one-half a mile from any
connecting point. Although he believed
in the wonderful richness of the Similkameen country he did not think a railroad
would pay, as there would not be sufficient traffic to support it. He was sure
that the Similkameen ores would be
smelted in the country and not at the Pacific coast. If the line was built tllS-e
would be no chance of making conrjec-
tion with the C. P. R. at Midway.
He then referred to the Torrens registry system, claiming that it was good if
/frmade optional, but it was two  expensive

at forma£i£nofa new party with a strong

of the province.
In concluding he pledged himself to

Similkameen country if returned, as he
expected to be, as the representative for
West Yale.
The chairman then introduced the
Hon. Mr. Beebe, who was loudly cheered.
ThL PtuumJal {Secretary opened his ad-
dress with, a short explanation of why
he was unable to arrange a series of
meetings with Mr. Murphy.
The conducting of the business of
the country required the presence
of three cabinet ministers at Victoria,
and he might have been called'on at any
time to attend. He was not a platform
orator like Mr. Murphy, but would try
and see as many of the electors as possible before the 9th of June. Regarding
the railroad question he stated that if the
government were sustained the railroad
would be built without delay. He ridiculed the idea of the railroad having to
stop one-half a mile from the boundary
ade
The Hon. gentleman touched up
Asiatic immigration question explaining
fully the stand the government would
take upon the matter. He drew attention to the large increase in Japanese and
Chinese on the Pacific coast and/pointed
out the dangers which threatened the
province from such a source.
Speaking of the labor vote he drew attention to the fact that with the exception of the two labor candidates who
mad been nominated in Vancouver, the
miners and other working men in the
province were giving the government
their unqualified support. Mr. Beebe
made a short concise speech refuting his
opponents arguments completely and
convinced his hearers that he thoroughly
understood the requirements of the Similkameen country. He was frequently applauded, the audience showing keen appreciation of the business-like manner in
which he disposed of Mr, Murphy's contentions.     In concluding he called on
Mr. Anderson took up the governments
railroad policy as the strong factor for
the electors of Princeton and district to
consider in the present election. He
proved conclusively that the construction of a railroad was not only feasible
but was the life of the whole country,
and the only means of developing its
immense mineral resources. The policy
adopted by the C. P. R. in building new
lines was not a progressive one, and the
early development of the Similkameen
would only be obtained by the building
of the government road. Nine million
dollars was a small sum for the province
to spend and even if the line cost twice
that amount the benefit that would accrue, not only to the Similkameen and
Boundary countries, but to the Province

A Successful Operation. X
ssful operation has been
performed in Princeton by Doctors
Whillans and Sutton, ably assisted by
Dr. McPhail, of Granite Creek, who
although not practising in B. C. keeps in
close touch with his profession. Mr. T.
Musgrave, of the Indian Reserve survey
department under Mr. Deveraux, has been
suffering lately from a severe attack of
appendicitis. He was brought to Princeton early this week and put under Dr.
Whillan's care, who at once advised that
an operation was necessary. Dr. Suttsu*
of Nicola was called in, and on ThursdajN
morning the operation took place. The
patient is recovering rapidly and will
soon be able to be around again. He is
receiving the greatest care and attention
from the physicians in charge. The
operation is one of the most difficult and
delicate performed in surgical practice
and reflects great credit on the doctors
who undertook it, as Mr. Musgrave could
not have received more skillful treatment
in any of the large city hospitals.
Working the Coal.
The V. F. M. & D.   Co.  have started
from Bridge street. Mr. W. J. Waterman has offered the coal to the citizens
at the very low figure of feso per ton.
At this price coal is certainly ■ cHeaper

will be induced to use it at that price.

Mackintosh's Mistake.
Ex-Governor Mackintosh appears
to have gotten himself very thoroughly disliked by mining people
generally by the extraordinary
course lie took in reference to the
Sunset property in the Similkameen
country. He had an option on
majority interest at one time, and
the money was up to pay for it, the
amount being $40,000, but for some
reason the deal did not go through.
Later on he took the trouble to
write to some newspaper giving the
property a bad name. As a matter
of fact the Sunset has been reported
on favorably by some very competent mining experts, and it is by no

New Copper Syndicate.
It has just been learned according the New York Times, that a
new consolidation of copper properties is soon to come into the field.
It will take over a number of Mexican and United States copper mines
and be known primarily as the Pan-
American Copper Syndicate Company. One of the men interested
in the syndicate said it was now
sure of success and that the company would be incorporated with a
nominal capitalization in New
Jersey, probably within the next
ten days. "It will be put on a conservative basis," said he. "The
aggregate capitalization of the companies to be merged is over $70,000,-
000, and the new company which
takes them all in will be capitalized
at only $15,000,000 to $18,000,000.
We intend shortly to apply to have
the stock listed here and on the
London exchange. Besides mine
owners, a number of bankers and
railway men are going into it. We
now have two experts examining
the properties in South America
and the reports of Professor Ricketts
of Columbia will also be utilized."

A MEMORABLE 9TK OF JUNE.
Today will be one of the red letter days in the history of British
Columbia. It will decide the basis
on which political campaigns will
be fought in future elections. It
will decide whether the electors of
the province want a strong progressive government or are willing to
allow the affairs of the country to
be bandied as they have been in the
past, by a monopolistic government
who have never legislated for the
best interests of the people. When
the immense, resources of the province are considered, when comparisons are made with other countries
far less bountifully supplied by
nature with the means to build up
great industries within their own
boundaries, when a small portion
of the country has proven the extent of its mineral wealth through
the enterprise of American capital,
pluck and enterprise, then surely it
is time for the people of this province to realize the necessity of returning to power a progressive government, pledged to foster the development of the latent mineral
wealth which the country possesses.
If we have a great province, as
we say we have, then let the people
of the province prove their faith in
it by endorsing the policy of the
first enterprising government that
has yet offered its services to the
country.
MISERABLE MAIL SERVICE.
New districts in the province of
British Columbia have been sadly
overlooked by the Postal authorities
at Ottawa in granting of adequate
postal facilities. The Dominion
government seem to think that this
province does not require any attention from the department regulating
the mail service, simply because the
interior is handicapped by a member who is utterly useless in pressing the needs of his constituency on
the postmaster-general. The Princeton mail service is not only entirely
inadequate inasmuch as the country
receives mailonly once ajweek. but
frequently letters are delayed in
transmission, because the mail service in the interior of the province
is not properly arranged. It is
quite a common occurence for important mail to arrive in Princeton
over a week late, and strange (
may seem the postal authorities
pay no attention whatever to the
numerous complaints which have
been sent them regarding the delay.
It is task enough to develop any
section of the province without being hampered with a postal department that refuse to recognise the
importance of paying due attention
to the need of growing districts.
British Columbia has been crying
out for years for proper postal facilities and the Dominion government
have refused to listen to her just
demands.
PUNGENT POLITICAL POINTER.
On Sunday morning, May 27th,
the News-Advertiser proved conclusively that it is no more sincere
iiuitscriticisms of the government's
railway policy than are any others
of the calamity howlers. It publishes a full-page article descriptive
of the marvellous richness of the
Similkameen country, and showed
beyond preadventure the enormous
economic value of Mr. Martin's
Kootenay railway policy to the
farmers of the Fraser valley and
the merchants, and people of the
Coast cities. It is quite useless for
the News-Advertiser, or any other
advocate of a blank policy, to attempt to retract that article and say
it is only an advertisement; the
facts are there as plain as a mountain, that almost the first section of
the proposed road is ' 'rich beyond
the dreams of avarice," The leading Conservative daily on the Mainland says so, and it surely believes
what it says itself.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
A vote for Beebe is a vote to induce capital to invest in your mines.
A vote for  Beebe is a vote for
your own interest.
Wake up Princeton and give your
support to the only policy that will
develop the country in which you
live.
] vote for Beebe is a vote for increased value in your agricultural
lands and for increased markets for
your produce.
If there was only one chance in
ten of the Martin government being able to carry out their railroad
policy, it is the duty of every elector in the Similkameen country to
vote for the one chance.
, Do. you own a prospect? Are
you interested in the mining development of the Similkameen ? Have
you located a pre-emptton? Do
you expect to make your living in
the Similkameen country ? If you
answer yes, you are bound to vote
for the railroad policy of the Martin
government.

Copper Camps Located There in Surprising Magnitude.
A. B. Clabon, of Rossland, is in the
citv, in the interest of the Quebec Boundary Mining Company. In speaking of
the West, he says a number of the new
districts are coming up very rapidly. In
Brown's Camp, where the Quebec-Boun-
dary is operating, a remarkably uniform
deposit of high-grade gold and copper
Has been found, and there is every indication that the properties will be successfully developed by the wealthy Quebec-
■kers behind the company.    In the Lar-
■ deau district two railways are being push-
I ed into the silver-lead centres, and heavy
I shipments will be received before very
I long. Two smelters are being erected in
I the Boundary country, and that of the
I Granby Company has already begun to
I roast its ores. The Greenwood smelter
I should be completed and in operation
before the end of the summer. A district
which has many surprises in store is the |
Similkameen. This district will be open- j
ed by the proposed   railway from the
I Kootenay to the coast. Already there
are in it copper camps of surprising magnitude, some of which, like, .the Prince-
I ton, are dignified with the names of towns, i
The movement in this new territory is I
I only beginning, but there can be little
* doubt that when the facilities for travel
are better population will pour in as it
I did in the Rossland camp.
J The Spokane & Northern have inaugurated a double train service between
Spokane and British Columbia points.
The regular passenger train north bound
will leave Spokane at 10:35 a. m. and returning will arrive at 7:10 p. m. The
new train will leave Spokane at 10:30 and
arrive from the north at 7:05 a. m. This
train will carry a standard sleeper, an
accommodation which patrons of the
Broad have long prayed for.
