GRAND BALL IN THE EVENING.
Fatal Drowning Accident.
On Monday last Thomas Sloan and
Samuel Brown tried to cross Roche i
in a crudely built boat, upsetting the
boat in the attempt, Brown losing his
life and Sloan escaping by a mere chance.
Sloan and a man named Wm. Bolen met
together in Nelson, B. C. about a month
ago and decided to spend the sun:
prospecting in the Similkameen country.
Bolen had left Brown and Sloan in camp
while he came to Princeton for suppli
and Brown being anxious to cross t'
river as soon as posS ible, induced Sloan
to make the attempt with him early Monday morning. The boat was .carried to
a spot where the landing place looked
promising,' Brown taking charge of thi
trip. While crossing he stood up in thi
boat to use his oar as a paddle in thi
swift water. The . boat being topheavy
upset in mid-stream. Sloan was unable
to swim and Brown shouted to him to
grasp a branch on the bank of the r
He managed to do so just as he had given
flip all hope of getting out, retaining his
hold - until he had gathered sufficient
strength to cra.wl„ out on. the bank.
Brown was not so fortunate as .the current swept him out to mid-stream and
although a strong Swimmer the icy waters
evidently cramped him and carried hi:
to certain death. Sloan searched all day
trying to recover the body of his unfortunate partner, but without success. Very
little is known abput Brown's history,
He came to Nelson last fall and worked
on a ranch on Kootenay lake all wii
cutting wood. He is supposed to hail
from some point on the Ottawa rive
he was an experienced logger and had
often spoken of his early life in that
tion. His partners are making a careful
search for the body, but it is hardly p
ible they will find it.
After
Jeffries vs. Corbett.
fter having all the best of the" fight,
Corbett's carelessness again defeated
him. He boxed magnificently, making
the big heavyweight look like a novice
and'up-to the 17th round had things
pretty muchjhis own way. Jeffries stood
the punishment well, but could, make no
headway against Corbetts defense. In a
mix up in the 23rd round Jeffries got
home £ short arm jolt on the chin which
sent Corbett to the floor like a log. He
was clearly out. Corbett was a great
favorite with the crowd arid was repeatedly cheered even after his defeat.
i Lacrosse Championship.
sw Westmuttter completely outplayed Vancouver in the final match for the
B. C. Lacrosse'^ampionsmp*ast/"SaXiir-
day, winning by a score of 4 games to 1.
The winners played a magnificent combination game. Vancouver has protest-
ed the gatne_on account^ of._the Peele
Bros^ playing for Westminster.
Princeton today has four well-stocked
stores, three commodious hotels, two
blacksmith shops, three livery stables,
two butcher shops, assay office, two real
estate and mining offices, gun, tin and
plumbing shop, two laundries, restaurant,
newstand, two barber shops, newspaper
and job printing plant, lawyers, doctors,
surveyors and government offices. The
city is rapidly growing up in every direction. A new hardware store will be
constructed on Bridge street shortly, a
number of residences are already arranged for and altogether the general outlook |
is very encouraging. Additional stage
service from both Spences Bridge jind
the Boundary country makes it miSch
easier for travellers to reach the city.
Work in the different mining" camps
goes steadily on. Development of claims
is proving daily the wonderful extent and
richness of-the ore bodies in the Similkameen district. As soon as the^rdvirieial .
elections are over a number of mining
men and capitalists will visit the country
and there is no doubt that a very large
amount of capital will shortly be invested in the mines. The mountains surrounding Princeton are full of prospectors and new discoveries are being recorded daily. With the advent of a government railroad from the Pacific coast
through the Similkameen to the Boundary country Princeton will make wonderful strides and will shortly be as Nelson
is to the Kootenays; the railroad, banking, cdmmercial, financial and government center of the entire Similkameen
district.
THE SIMUKAMEEN BRIDGE.
[ Construction work on the new bridge',
is progressing favorably. The abutment
on the opposite side of the river is being
built, a cable has been stretched across
the river and a ferry boat established for
the convenience^pf the men working.
! The iron and other material has been
Ordered and as soon as the high water
subsides the piers will be put in. It will
not be long before the route to Copper
mountain will be shortened four miles.
The Political Pot.
X
Mr. A. J. Palmer, J. P., of Salmon Arm
will contest North Yale in the government interest.
: Hon. Smith Curtis is having a walk
over in the Rossland riding.
• W. B. Mclnneshas resigned his seat in
the Dominion" Parliament.
Ex-Speaker Foster now acknowledges
that the Martin government is certain
to carry 10 to 15 seats at the coming
election. Bets are being made that there
will be 25 government candidates chosen
by the people on the ^h^of June.

VOICES FROM THE PEN.
A late copy of the Starof Hope, a
paper published by the CMRrlLts^rH^Stng
Sing, contains much qf interest.   Among
Other things, it runs a funny   column,
which goes to prove that even in stripes
there is some humor.
The following are from the paper:
It is better to lock the stable door
after the horse is stolen than  not to lock
it at all—it might save the cow.
OOO
When a man is being hanged, it ca
be said that he is at the end of his rope.
OOO
A mandolin player and a ditch diggt
are alike in that they each use a pick.
OOO
What   goes   with  every striped - suit
that's given out here ?   A watch.
OO O
Why are some of the jokes in the St;
of Hope like prison   bread ?    Becaus
they are hard to digest.
OOO
Brakeman—The   engineer of No. 999
was discharged this morning.
Conductor—What for?
Brakeman—For leading a fast life.
OOO
Mrs. Newlywed—John, you told me a
big fib this morning.
John—Why, what do you mean ?
Mrs.  Newlywed—You   told   me   the
butcher on the next street kept the best
dressed turkeys in the neighborhood.
John—So he does.
Mrs. Newlywed—Why, John ! You
know you are fibbing 1 I went there
this morning, and not one of his turkeys
had a feather on.

"I began my career as an office boy,"
said Willie, "and I remember how proud
I was the' first time I cashed a check at
thejbank."
"The first time I cashed a check at the
bank," gloomily responded his, listener,
"I had all the pride knocked out of me
by getting ten years."
Coring a Cold.
Mr. Blifkins had a cold,
It settled in his head.
"Always hits the weakest spot."
Funny friends all said.
Mr. Blifkins coughed and wheezed,
Shivere, sneezey, and shook,'
Listened to his friends' advice—
This is what he took:
Box of nnti-kamnia,
Douched his nose with brine,
*   Mustard plaster on his chest,
Camphor balls,

TID-BITS.
"Mamma," exclaimed Nan as the family grocer left a turkey on the kitchen
table, "the turkey's legs are shingled
clear up to the meat."—Judge.
"Some folks," said Uncle Eben, "doan'
'pear ter take no pride in speakin' de
troof 'ceppin' when it gwine ter huht

"I likes ter gib advice," Said Uncle
Eben. "Dar ain* nuffin' mo' satisfying'

Prom Sporting Times.
It is reported that Kruger, seeing the
number of men arriving at the Cape,
thonght we must be short of men in England. He accordingly wired to an agent
in London:
"Are there any men left in London?"
—Kruger.
Agent: "Millions."
Kruger: "Try Mancaster."
Agent: 'Shoals of'em."
Kruger: "Hear the Wigan men are
devils to fight.   Try Wigan.''
Agent (who a-rives at Wigan when the
men are coming up from the coal pits):
"Stop the war at once. They are coming from hell—eight at a time."
Anti.fcbrine pills,
Porous plaster on his back,'
Spirits frumenti,
Menthol inhalation tube,
Bra

Emulsion of cod liver oil,
Ugh!
Some strong beef soup.
Every remedy they urged
Mr. Blifkins tried ;
Now they say they cured the cold,
But Mr. Blifkins died.

THE POWER OF THE PRESS.
How many votes will the "World'*"
a-lvxcacy of Mr. Martin influence? How
many votes will the "News-Advertiser's"
advocacy of Mr. Cotton's position influence ? How many votes will we lose
by reason of our having no party organ ?
In my opinion not a single vote—Why?
Because the power of the press to influence the votes of a great party contending for a great principle is practically nil.
—Taken from the address of Charles
Wilson, Q. C, delivered at Vancouver,
April 17th, 1900.
Mr. Wilson in making the above
statement is either deliberately
false to his own honest opinion, or
is so narrow-minded and antiquated
in his views that he is entirely unfit for the position to which he aspires, the leader of the conservative
party. We are inclined to believe
that Mr. Wilson tries to underrate
the power of the press as a moulder
of public opinion simply because his
party is not supported by any of the
leading papers in the province.
Surely he must be politician enough
to know that over one-third of the
vote usually cast at any political
election is entirely a changeable
one. The supporter of "party"
will of course always vote with the
party, but taking the total number
of votes polled by either side how
many are fixed party votes ? Certainly not over 60 per cent. Mr.
Wilson in his address gives one the
impression that he is simply depending on the vote of straight party
conservatives. In this idea he may
be right, however, as it would be
useless for Mr. Wilson to appeal to
outside electors for support with
such a weak policy, party and lead
er. 	
politics in British Columbia.
As the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
of the conservative party he was
not a success. He played a strong
hand for the leadership of the c
servative party, but rinding he was
not in favor and that Mr. Wilson
was the choice of the Pacific coast
faction, he tried to rally around his
standard the remnant of his old
party. It was a forlorn hope, the
followers of Mr. Semlin were disgusted with the dual role Mr. Cotton was endeavoring to fill. Where
are his supporters now? How
many adherents has he to the old
provincial party ? Not more than
three candidates at the present time
acknowledge him as their leader.
Deserted, friendless, alone, he presents to the people of British Columbia a sorry spectacle, a double faced
politician who has betrayed his
party and who has reaped a just reward for his unfaithfulness to his
colleagues.
A POLITICAL BACK NUMBER.
Mr. F. C. Cotton is politically
dead. As long as he was in the
opposition background fighting the
Turner government he was looked |
upon as being possessed of sound
judgment and as one of the strongmen in his party. A little power,
as well as a little knowledge, is
sometimes a dangerous thing, however, and Mr. Cotton became the
dictator of the Semlin administration, an autocrat from whose decision there was no appeal, the real
and only wrecker of his own party,
and the destroyer of provincial party
UP IN ROSSLAND.
C. H. Mackintosh is running for
the legislature in Rossland and will
probably be still running on the 10th
of June. He is a nice man and
wears a bouquet with wonderful
grace, but Charley's place on this
earth is beside the rich promoter
and the fat capitalist who has designs upon the public domain. He
is a pleasant fellow, but his trail
does not run into the camp where
the hard-handed sons of toil fry
their bacon. It rather runs to the
mansions where the fizzy foams in
the glasses of the classes, and the
masses never come. Talking about
Mac puts us in mind of the time
when he ran a paper in Strathroy.
He was quite a politician in those
days around Middlesex. One
evening in company with Harry
Gorman he held a meeting in Bid-
dulph. This was a great place for
the Irish. The meeting had not
progressed very far when a free
fight began, and the lights were
knocked out. When peace and
light had been restored, Mac was
found pinned down by a window
through which he had attempted
an exit. Gorman released him and
the proceedings proceeded without
any further incidents. History repeats itself, and it is possible Charley
may get pinned down by the window of popular opinion in Rossland.—New Denver Ledge.
IS IT ANY WONDER?
Tne Star thoroughly endorses the
stand taken by the Phoenix Pioneer in the following editorial.
First, let the people of Princeton
and the Similkameen consider their
own needs as being of paramount
importance to them individually,
then it is time enough to study the
good of the province. The Hon.
G. W. Beebe is the first candidate
to take a live interest in the community and the people here will
show their appreciation of a progressive government when they
register their vote at the polls.
Recently the Nelson Miner took the
Grand Porks Miner to task for advocating the election of a candidate with a
policy favoring the interests of the Boundary country, and thinks that, if all sections acted in the same manner, the good
of the province as a whole would be lost
sight of, and it would suffer in propor-
If the editor of the Nelson paper had
lived longer in the province he would
know that long before Kootenay and Yale
became so important in provincial affairs,
from wealth, population and development, our politics were entirely between
the "Island" (meaning Victoria and other
towns on that island) and the "Mainland" (meaning Vancouver, New Westminister, etc.). This was all very well as
long as these were the only "pebbles on
the beach." But in the course of time,
this section grew in importance and
clamored for just recognition at the hands
of the legislature at Victoria. This was
n tardil, and in extremely small
doses, as the politicians in power saw fit,
their sweet pleasure, or when they
could not well avoid it Redistribution
was put off from time to time, and it is
generally acknowledged that the present basis of representation is an outrage.
There can be no argument on this point.
It is admitted.
Is it any wonder, then, that the people
of the Boundary are tired of being mis-
presented or half represented ? Is it
any wonder that they demand our multifarious interests shall be looked after by
member of our own ? Is it any wonder
that they insist that the present candidates in Rossland riding—Hon. C. H.
Mackintosh and Hon. Smith Curtis—to
which the Boundary is yet unfortunately
attached, shall pledge themselves to look
after the needs of Boundary at the provincial capital, the first of which is a rep-
We have been forced into this position,
and the Grand Porks Miner is right.
Self preservation is popularly supposed
to be the first law, and if we do not look
for ourselves we have learned by past
experience that others will not look out
for us as they should.

Ais one of the largest mines in America
I had an English expert from London, up
with me to buy the mine if he could; he
- is wild over the property, and is going to
get it if money can buy it. Mr. Rutter,
of Spokane, is also here trying to fix up
the deal with the Spokane parties, but as
they did not get their money in time
they will have to step back and wait
■their turn ; we have given the English
■ company one week's option to make the
■first payment; they are to pay $45,000
more than we were to get from the Spo-

time wili be shorter and the payments
larger; the woods are full of buyers at
the present time; by going into this syn-

DON'T CROAK.
llowing good advice from the!
Spokane Chronicle should be digested by
some of the old croaks around Princeton
and especially by a few new grunters who
have visited the city during the past-
week. Princeton has an super-abundance
|>f the croaking element and can get
Along nicely without any further addition
lo their ranks. This is what the Chroni-
cle says to a Portland croaker v, ho wanted a reason and a remedy for dull times
an Portland:
I   You poor thing !
You want a reason ? You want a remedy?   Well, take it.
Quit your grunting. Get in and hustle.
Don't go around croaking like a bullfrog
with dyspepsia. You've got a good town;
don't be ashamed of it. If you haven't
confidence in it—if you're not too proud I
of it to utter wailful whjmpenngs like j
that—then get out of it on the first freight'
train or sailboat you see, and don't come i
Don't come here, either. We've had
some folks like you up here—mighty few
of 'em, though, thank fortune, and we
don't offer any inducements for them to
stay. There have been people in Chicago
who thought th/e^windy City didn't need
anything but a white fence and a job lot
of tomb-stones to be a first-class cemetery,
but they died and Chicago didn't.
Reasons? Remedy? Here's one for
all the kickers. Take off your green
glasses—get a mirror and practice smiling at it until you get so you can do it
easy—scrape the moss off your own back
first and then tackle your neighbor's;
say good things about your town and
your friends and the preacher or keep
your mouth shut—and see how long it
takes you to catch yourself wondering
how you were ever lucky enough to get
in half so good a world as this is after all.
TO THE
Provincial Electors ot
 THE	
WEST RIDING OF YALE
Gentlemen:—I come before the people of this constituency as a member of
the government in perfect harmony with
and having the full confidence of my
colleagues, approving fully of the government platform as the ablest that has ever
been presented to the people of this province. I am a liberal out and out and
have no interest with any person or
party that is willing to steer the province
in to the hands of the old clique and factions of conservatives that have for so
many years been controlling the govern-
I solicit the support of the people at
the forthcoming election on a clean,
clearcut statement of policy to be purused
so that people can readily understand my
position. I do not intend to impose upon the public as an independent or oppositionist, as I know that the wishes of
the people are to be considered rather
than allowing my personal motives or
ambitions to overide their wills. It is
intention to see as many voters of
this riding as soon as possible. I consider myself a worker rather than a talk-
*, yet I will at some time during the
present campaign state my views more
fully to the people at public meetings to
be held at such places as will be conven-
for them. I have the honor to be
gentlemen,
Your most obedient servant,
GEO. W. BEEBE.
