Chief Supt. Killeen and Foreman Hwork on some of bis mining-property

Chas. Revely oil
of the week, the former gentlemen
having just completed a thorough
inspection of tne work being done
on the new road. They report
work progressing very favorable for
the number of men inlisted, but
find it will be necessary to greatly
enlarge the force if the road is to be
completed in any seasonable time.
Foreman Goldsborough will be removed from Five Mile where he
has started the building of a bridge,
and placed ^in charge of a force below Twenty Mile. Mr. Bromley
expects to finish up the section he
is now working, on in a few days,
and will start a new section just below his ranch. A third crew will
be placed between the above two
forces, and the work pushed with
all possible speeed. i
It is the intention to leave the'
bridge building until the entire
road is finished, except possibly the
one at Five Mile. A brirjge and
connecting road has been built by
the Hedley townsite -people, at a
-cost of several thousand dollars,
which will obviate a great deal of
expense to the government.
A great deal of the road between
Twenty Mile and'Keremeos will
. have to be gone over, as it has been
done in such a ship-shod manm
that it would be folly to call it
completed road. This side of Five
Mile several rock slides will have to
be cleared away, when the road will
then be passable to Bromley's ranch,
twelve miles from Princeton. With
the exception of the hill just this
side of Five Mile, the above piece
of road is practically level, and
will compare favorably with the
best highways in the province.
It is thought that wjth the added
force work on the road can be finished by the first of May, thus enabling the early running of stages
from Keremeos to Princeton.
/   Harry Duncan
A. E. Howse's store have been busy taking stock the past week.
,   Luke Gibson  and F. Boulter left for
the former's ranch on   Five Mile   the
middle of the week.
Joe FjfakarriaiOf Twenty Mile came up
the forepart of the week to look after his
interests in this vicinity.
A Mr. Nichols, representing Vancouver
capital has been investigating Otter Flat
coal properties the past week.
— Lanu^itjwho has^some valuable
mining proporty on Kennedy mountain,
ment and development work.
, J. F. Hard wick, who went out to South
Africa with the Army yMedical corps as
dispenser, is sick a^Bipemfontein with
enteric fever. HeMs a brother to E. E.
Hard wick of this place.
I Bert Irwin returned the middle part of
the week from Kamloops and Nicola districts where he has been doing assessment work for several months, y. Bert
says he came in early to be ahead ofthe
rush which he expects to be in shortly.
L. Alex. Sharp, a Rossland mining
man, has been in Princeton and vicinity
for several days investigating Similkameen coal properties. He reports all
kinds of excitement on the outside over
the railroad question.
Chris. Meind, of Loomis, Wash., was
transacting business in Princeton the first
of the week. He reports prospects very
bright for Loomis this season. A large
compressor and concentrator are two improvements that are booked for this year.
\ J. H. Jackson returned from a several
jdays visit to his ranch at Otter Flat yes-
jterday. He reports wat both himself
land Jack Cunningham b^ave succeeded in
'finishing ^domiciles on their respective
ranches and wilVnow put their attention
to minor improvements.
.' Bright and early on Friday morning
jFrench & Day, having secured the con-
'tiact, started a force of men on the work
of grading a road from the Similkameen
bridge to the top of the bench above. It
is expected that the work will be com-
1 pie ted by a week from today.
When questioned, while in Princeton,
in regard to the building of a new bridge
across the Tulameen, Mr. Killeen shook,
his head and little satisfaction could be
got from him. He evidently, however,
does not seem to think that tie present
one is absolutely beyond repairing.
A deplorable accident happened at McAlpine Bros.' Saw Mill on Thursday, by
Joe Wigmore, better known as Joe Dewdney, having his leg broken.-)"- It seems
that he was in the act of rolling a log
over with a canting hopk) when his foot
slipped through the\ planking he was
standing on, the\ log kotning over with
such force as to i/eak the leg at the lower portion of the ankle. ^Th-. Whillans
was called to set the break, which was
found to be a very bad one^ and it will
be some time before the patient will
again be able to walk.
Outside News.
An Well Supplied With Coke.
All kinds of fake stories are being originated by the C. P. R. organs in their in-
dearor to make a plausable case for themselves. The following, however, shows
one of the lies that were nailed.
Greenwood, March I—The telegraphic
dispatch in the Nelson Miner, respecting
the diversion of thirty cars of coke from
the Trail smelter to the Greenwood smelter is absolutely misleading. Finding
they were overstocked the former have
arranged with tbe Greenwood people to
relieve them of twenty cars, which will
give Greenwood 1,000 ton surplus.
NEIGHBORLY NOTES.
The report comes that the bond on the
Kingston and Rollo group, at Twenty
Mile, has been taken up by Mr. Patrick's
company, and active development work
will be carried on during the summer.
The mining on Kruger mountain in the
Okanogan country, has recently received
a great impetus by tbe strike made upon
the Dividend, which was thrown over
last year by a_g Ji^r]pn «-»f arppnwn^
Work had scarce recommenced on this
this property when a fine body of ore, 16
feet wide was struck within 17 feet from
the place where work was discontinued
last fall. The owners are consequently
much elated
1 The new town of Hedley, at Twenty
Mile creek, from all reports, is a hummer.
It is estimated that something like $3,000
have been spent by the townsite people
ifor the new Twenty Mile creek bridge,
and the road connecting the town with
Ithe Keremeos-Princeton road. A two
thousand dollar store building will be
commenced immediately. Other proposed improvements are only waiting the
completion of the road to Princeton, so
as to enable them to secure lumber.
The new plant pf the Mother Lode
mine near Greenwood has been installed.
The sorting belt was put in motion yesterday. The mine is now in a position
to ship 650 tons of ore per day, which
will be done as soon as the smelter is
prepared to handle that amount.
Railroad Question Still Frying—The
Crow's Nest Southern Bill in the
Hands of the Ry. Committee.
The railroad question as far as
the Coast-Kootenay proposition is
concerned is still simmering at
the capital city. It seems generally understood, however, that the
C. P. R. have offered to build the
road without a subsidy. Victoria
is fairly alive with charter mongers
and lobyists.
The Crow's Nest Southern Railway Charter was considered in the
Railway committee this morning,
and the pre-amble passed on a vote
of 13 to 4. Mr. Jaffray, Vice-President of the Coal Company, and Mr.
Drewry, Manager of the St. Eugene
mine, appeared before the Committee and replied to questions relative
to the business of the Company and
the necessity for the proposed road.
It is said that the Mining Committee will recommend the that an
amendment be made to the Placer
Mining Act, providing that placer
shall be Crown granted.

THE SIHILHAMEEN STAR
The man who finds fault with hi
leighbor exposes one of his own.
Wise is the man who can keep
ppearances up and expenses down.
The greatest book of the century,
ays an exchange, is a check book
-to which we heartily acqueisce.
Instead of giving the expression
a bicycle flavor by remarking a man
has wheels, the up-to-date terms is
he's off on his automobile.
People are so impressed with the
wondrous possibilities of the new
century they are asking where they
will end. About the only answers
at hand is they'll end in precisely
a hundred years from date.
John Houston still keeps the
Nelson Tribune columns filled witl
the C. P. R.-Hill controversy. No
doubt John's patriotic (?) sentiments
had ought to be highly appreciated
by the Tribune readers, but we'd
be willing to wager that nine people out of ten read them with disgust.       	
We have lately heard an occas-
sion comment about the length of
time the men under Foreman Bromley are taking for their work, but
every complaint emanates from some
one who is an avowed enemy of
good roads. A comparison of the
work being done under the above
foreman and that done on other
- portions of the road, will bring the
only conclusion that can be arrived at by a comparison of a road
and a trail.
The age is progressive, productive, materalistic. It aims, not at
the ideal, but at the practical, not
at the highest development of the
few, but at the highest happiness of
the greatest number. Its object is
the welfare of the average man, and
it naturally desires that he shall get
the benefit of its exertions before
he dies. Therefore the age "gets a
move on" and preaches the gospel
of "hustle." The result is beneficial to the average man—to the
greatest number.
Every little while we notice some
item in the coast papers which, although amusing, shows how easy
the truth can be covered up and
without, apparently, any falsification. A recent news item in the
Colonist which is credited to a resident of Allison would lead the uninformed to the conclusion that this
so-called burg has several residents.
As a matter of fact, to the best of
our knowledge, it has a total population of 2, consisting of a man and
wife, who, keep watch on the town-
site stakes in case they get tired of
waiting for the boom and try to
walk off.      ;-,	
One of the greatest need of Princeton today is a jwell-organized association to promote the business interests. A Tax-payers^Ajsociation
would probably brifig^the greatest
response from /thVpeople. Such
associations have been carried on
successfully in different parts of the
province, and have been a great assistance to the communities for
which they acted. One of the main
benefits would come from the work
ofthe corresponding secretary whose
duty it would be to answer all
quiry as to the districts resources
from interested parties on the out
side.
Trying to run a paper single
handed is an undertaking which
very few newspaper men care to try
more than once. The powers who
have had semi-occasional charge of
the dispensing of intellectual refreshment to Star readers for the
past year, has again fallen into misfortune. We call your attention to
this fact, not because we desire any
sympathy, but because we think
explantion is due the Star readers
for lack of reading matter. At
present we nre editor, manager,
typo, pressman and—deadl—all in
one—by no means an enviable pos-
sition. However, as soon as the
management returns, sufficient mechanical assistance will be brought
in for a general, enlargement of the
Star's news columns.

We are not ai\extraordinarly bad
community, butAnce and awhile,
such disgustiiaf incidents as occurred on Tuesday, remind us forcefully that we have police protection
in name only. It may be wisdom
on the part of a provincial constable
to seek safety in his hflr"** twjj miles
away when he sees trouble brewing,
but it assuredly does not show a
large amount of courage. It is
about time that a person was placed
in this position with at least sufficient stamina to take care of the
common drunks. There is all together too much vile and indecent
language used on the street by a
number of men who make it a practice of getting drunk whenever the
opportunity presents itself, — a
state of affairs which is intolerable
to those who have homes and families in Princeton. A day or two
in close confinement in the cave at
the upper end of Vermilion avenue
would probably convince some of
these individuals that the principal
street in Princeton was not the
proper place to give free exhibitions
or to sober up in.
The Rossland Miner says there
are millions to burn in the coal
fields of East Kootenay. If the
statistican is not fooling us there
are a few hundred millions to burn
in the Similkameen also.—Pioneer.

Through the Week.
Among the dinerent improvements going on in and around
Princeton this week we noticed
that a.new side-walk is being built
in front of the Jackson: a new
picket fence in front Chas. Richter's
residence; a new well on H. Hunter's property near town; and a
new fence a around B. Thomas'
ranch.

The "delegates" started on their
way to the coast Sunday morning
with the praiseworthy purpose of
trying to hurry up the coming of
the railroad, and incidentally to become better acquainted with the
seaboard towns. They will no
doubt be received with open arms
and a hearty welcome wherever
they go, still we cannot help feeling
some anxiet}' for their safety until
the again land in Princeton,
present we are fraid they are what
might be called 'delegates at large.'
A celestial, commonly k:
the Jew Chjnaman, came in" town
one day this week with every
dication of a general 'clean up.'
By the miscellaneous assortment
of'change he must have recently
been high man at the Chinese
Monte_Cailo-abov^ town. In trying to get his wealth in a more
compact form he displayed over a
hundred dojjars in gold dust, a
pocket full of silver, a big roll of
greens, and a good sized sack of
•American eagles. Chinese labor
lovers are evidently not all dead
yet around here.

There is much more news goes
into the editor's ears than ever
trickles out through his pencil, says
the Silvertonian. Some people have
peculiar ideas of the duties of a
newspaper and if we were to begin
doing what we are asked several
times a week, in the way of personal roasts, without even suggesting payment, the mails could not
handle our correspondence from
lawyers threatening libel.
While the editor is not in business for his health, neither is he in
business to place his bodily safety
at the disposal of all who desire to
have their personal quarrels taken
up. ' 'Advertise him from one end
of British Columbia to the other,"
said a vengeance seeker in the second stage of intoxication to us recently;  advertise him plenty—if it
con'I cost anything ! Say it was a
sober man from Nelson told." And
before we could steer him to the
entrance he had pied a galley of
type and broken a piece from our
towel.

THE C. P. R, THROWING DTTST.
In the Eyes ofthe Public on the, Smelter Coke and Coal Question.
A prominent and well-posted citizen of Rossland, writing to a frienc
in Cascade, says, on the above subject:
"An attempt is being made to
throw dust in the eyes of the public
by the C. P. R. organs, at Nelson
especially, in regard to the production and shipment of coal and coke
to the United States market to the
prejudice of our own smelters I
refineries.' We have the positive
public assurance of the Crow's Nest
Coal Co. that they have always
supplied all the smelters of B. C
and other industries, and that they
will continue to do so; but they
charge that the C. P. R. have by
delays, and lack of transportation
facilities, both as~to cars and power
kept tlie smelters practically on as
narrow allowance as they could.
Mr. H. W. C. Jackson tells me that
he saw tbe corresspondence which
passed between Capt. Troup anc
the Trail smelter in regard to the
short supply of coal and coke furnished them, and in all this correspondence not a word of complaint
was made by the C. P. R. that they
were not furnished ample coke anc
coal for the'smelter by the Crow's
Nest Coal Company, but that the
dimcuty was in the shortage ofl
power and cars; in any event, both
the dominion and the local governments have ample powers to protect:
tbe interests of British Columbia in
this respect."
Mr. Brewers Report of the Kamloops
District.
Active operations have been carried on in only the Kamloops anc
Similkameen divisions of this district. In the former division the
most extensive development work
has been done on the Iron Mask
and Lucky Strike mineral claims,
the property ofthe British Columbia Exploration Syndicate. This
work has been done with a view to
determining the value of the claims
and block out ore in sight; and the
writer is informed the results obtained have been very satisfactory;
Development work has also been
done on the Tenderfoot, Kimberly
and Phyton mineral claims, the
former being located about fifteen
miles westerly from the town ofl
Kamloops, and the two latter a few
miles northeasterly from the town,
and in the same mineral zone, are
situated the Iron Mask and Lucky
Strike. Work has been progressing on the Python for the past few
years for the purpose of determining the value of the property.
The future possibilities of the
Kamloops Division yet remain to
be solved. The mineral zones possess some unique features. Nearly
all the work up to the present time
has been carried to a comparatively
shallow depth, and the writer has
not made a sufficiently close study
of the mineral zones in the division,
to warrant him in expressing any
decided opinion as to the future
prospects.—Engineering and Mining Journal.
It is said that a company has recently been formed by Pittsburg and
Alleghany men, under a Deleware
charter, for the purpose'ofacquiring
mining property in British Columbia. Their capital stock is $400,-
000. Several gold properties are
now being examined in the Boundary district for the company.
