must have improved mail
service.    The citizens of Fairview and
Keremeos are now urging the Domin on
government to arrange a tri-weekly me
service to Keremeos via Fairview.    L
the people of Princeton join with the
and demand that the service be conti:
ued through to Princeton.   The mail ce
be brought from Keremeos to Princetc
in one day which would allow mail from
the Boundary district to reach us in three
days instead of eight to ten days by the
present route.     Mr.  Bostock has been
repeatedly   urged to impress upon the
postal authorities the necessity of giving
this district increased mail  facilitie:
so far without result.     If he could be
persuaded to demand from   the   j
master-general a recognition of the needs
of  his constituency  there would be
further difficulty, but it is evident that
our member is very dilatory in presenting such matters to the authorities.   A
concentrated effort should be made at
once by the entire community between
Princeton   and Fairview,   to force the
government to recognize the urgencey ofl
granting the service asked.
Queen's Birthday Sports.
At a meeting held last night a splendi
programme of sports was arranged for'
Thursday, May 24th. Handbills will be

THE SIMILKAMEEN STAR
MINING SUITS AND LAWS.
It may strike the average observ
er that Butte mining men are the
most litiguous aggregation of mine
operators *ver thrown together in a
western mining district. That is
a mistake. They are nothing of the
sort. As a body they are honest,
intelligent, enterprising and law-
abiding. But they are tenacious*
of their rights, simply demanding
that which they conserve belongs to
them and do not hesitate to appeal
to the courts to secure them; Tnere
is nothing wrong in this. If wrong |
exists anywnere it 'may be found in
the law itself, or in the interpreta-
suits are, in one sense, a compli
ment, in another they are a sad
commentary upon our mining laws,
or the ignorance of mining upon
the part of its mine operators. Until one or both be corrected by time
and dearly bought experiences, the
Investing and speculating world
may continue to hear of injunctions
and restraining orders and all other
kinds of mining suits at law in the
courts of Silver Bow county. If
Butte were a wild-cat or a played
out mining camp its courts would
be employed in appointing receivers
for broken business firms and disposing of their murder and divorce
cases. No mining laws would be
wanted for Butte and mining suits
would be a thing of the past.

But in His infinite wisdom the
Creator has raised a mighty host
which men call "mining experts,"
who with models ana maps and
samples of rock and vein formation,
are prepared to testify that one
man's claim belongs to another until both judge and jury heartily
wish that internal disturbances of
earthly matter had been confined to
"Darkest Africa" or beneath the
deepest seas. But the experts and
the lawyers gain a great victory for
one party or the other and give
place to another aggregation of litigants and experts and learned doc-
tdrsgf'the law to battle in a like
"suit in which a different verdict
may be rendered. And during all
this time the same old law remains
.upon our statute books, as silent,
upon the more essential points at
issue, as the tomb of the capulets.
Mining is a science as exact as
mathematics, but it is not thoroughly understood. Knowledge
alone will simplify it. Until that is
gained mining men must worry
along as best they can, taking the
bitter with the sweety justice or injustice, as judges or juries may mete
it out. But in a mining district
like Butte, where a foot of ground
may contain a fortune, mine owners guard their holding with jealous eyes and any encroachment upon what they conceive to be their
rights is fought with the legal knife

weak and ineffectual representatives
like Hewitt Bostock, M. P.
A wealth of money and' a still
greater affluence of good intentions
have not prevented Mr. Bostock
from generating into a partisan of
the most abject and servile type.
The Laurier Government does
nothing for followers who are ready
to sacrifice everything for party.
Two years ago Mr. Bostock would
have been in a pistol at the head of
his leaders and demand that they
recognise the importance of th(
public principle involved in the
private bills to permit the construe
tion of a railroad without expense
to the country.
The Laurier government advocated its function of leadership, and
allowed a C. P. R. lobby to control the action of Parliament two
years ago. The government was
no better yesterday. The Opposition could not do worse ; and the
result was another outrage on the
rights of an important district
