An Easy, Practical and Short Route
to Princeton and the Similkameen
Mines.

-Mr. Denis Murphy, M. P. P., is paying
his promised visit to Princeton after his
labors at the last session of the provincial
parliament. He rode in from Hope, B.

very enthusiastic about the feasibility of
building a good wagon road from Hope
to Princeton. He says it will be ten
times easier to build a road to the Similkameen-than   it was   to   build, the   old
ndtfcesi
nd of shorter durat
road to Cariboo.
In speaking of the t
Murpny is of the opinion that from $3,oc<
to $5,000 will be sufficient to put it ii
first class condition. He was surprised
to find the grade from the summ:
Princeton such a gradual descent
easy to build.
Mr. Jas. Hislop, P. L. S., who is
engaged in surveying the road, is finding
no difficulty in keeping the gi
to the maximum point allowed—hr the
government. viz.r 10 per cent,
is progressing rapidly and the
the section from the summit d<
end of the old road will be completed
early next week.
The probable cost of completing

is estimated^aL faotooo. This

The Pacific coast merchants seem to be
slow to realize the benefits th<^ will' -naturally derive from the construction of
the Hope road. Although they have had
the matter thoroughly explained to them
and comparisons drawn with their experience   of   the   development   of   the

their usual ljjfeswarm style, contenting
themselves witWffe remark, "Oh yes!
we think the road is a necessary one."
Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster have shown little or no energy in
building up the southern section of the
province, and it is only after it is too late,
the coast cities will make   a  spasmi

Realty Sold.
Several important transfers in real
estate are reported this week. George
McCroskery has disposed of 50 feet of his
block on Bridge street for the sum of J>io
per front foot, Mr. Hugh Cowan, barber,
purchasing 25 feet and Messrs. Rennie &
Bell, merchants, 25 feet. The Vermilion
Forks Co. have also made "a few sales,
and it is probable that the company will
raise the price of their inside business
lots on the ist of next month.
Conservative Candidate.
Mr. A. H. McNeill, barrister of Rossland, B. C, received the nomination of
Conservative candidate for Yale-Cariboo-
Kootenay at the coming Dominion elections. John A, Mara, Price Ellison, and
R. Green were also placed in nomination,
but Mr. McNeilPs election was declared
unanimous. Mr. McNeill is well and
favorably known in the province, having
been engaged in the law business at
Vancouver before moving to Rossland.
Rossland and Nelson have each nominated an enterprising young barrister, so
Kootenay is bound to elect the next
member for the Dominion parliament.
May the best man win !
strict
than any other portion of the riding, and
he was happy to say that he had beei
successful in getting it.
He would first explain certain votes c
his at the late session. First. Thej£ft
tie river railway charter. He recognized
the imperative necessity of railway communication for this district, and he voted
against the Kettle river bill because the
V. & E. people, who will prohaMs-be
the first company to build from the coast
to Princeton, had opposed the charter.
Re the Chinese question. The government had passed legislation which prevented Chinese or Japanese from working
on public works, also an act preventing
anyone from coming into the country
who could not read or write some E
pean language. He had voted against
Mr. Mclnnes' bill and would vote against
it again if it came up tomorrow. It was
entirely too radical and would have had
a paralyzing effect on the industries of
the province. On the eight hour law,
Mr. Murphy declared most emphatically
that he would always support it as it
stood on the statute books.
Local matters were then discussed, the
burning question of the day, viz., the location of the government .buildings and
school-being the. chief points of interest
to thofee present. In reference to these
matters, Mr. Murphy remarked that he
had promised before his election that the
town of Princeton would receive his first
attention and he had kept his word.
Almost the whole of the appropriation
for the riding had gone to Princeton and
district.
He explained the position of the government regarding the   Keremeos   road,
The location of the government buildings was next entered into, and on this
subject Mr. Murphy invited discussion.
Mr. Arthur Hickling, as a delegate and
as representative of the townsite company, made a short, concise speech, explaining why the buildings should be
built at Princeton and made a motion to

A» crowd of American soldiers id
the Philippines attended church service in their honor, and were perhaps more amused than scandalized
to see on a flaring banner an American eagle bearing in his beak* a
streamer on which was this legand:
"Use only So-and-so's condensed
milk." An irreverent artist had
enlarged a picture which he saw on
a milk can and the good padre was
easily convinced that the whole
design was American in the extreme. Therefore he had the banner hung over the altar, hoping
thereby to gratify the soldiers

However, we have faith in Mr.

district.    	
WE WANT GOOD ROADS.
It is with full knowledge of these
present conditions and of the fact
that no better investment offers
itselj to the consideration of the

a "good roads" campaign and in
connection therewith has called a
convention to be held in Kamloops
on Thursday, the 27th instant, for
the organization of a Provincial
Qood Roads Association.
I The movement will unquestionably have the sympathy, as it should
command the co-operation, of every
true British Columbian. Similar
good roads associations have proven
a power for practical reform in the
older province of Ontario, and no
