Keremeos Road.
Work on the Keremeos-Princeton road
has received another set-back, by orders
ported the first of the week that those on
the other end of the road had also been
taken ofl", but later on this was found to
have been false, as several parties coining
np from Keremeos 'say that work is still
being pushed ahead at that end of the
road and that the people in that section
evinced a great deal of surprise and in-
"dignation at the fact that work had been
discontinued on the upper portion of the
road.    No satisfactory reason has been
and the short cold "snap of th:
days, had abated before the orders were
given. It is claimed that withtwoweeks
more.vnith_Jthe-fuiTe Llnri^jya^aT work
wr.ni^ hav fi"'o1iH—tlT> road so that
teams could have gone through. It is reported that the remaining crew have
orders to push on into this district as
soon as they get their portion done. It
is to be hoped this is true, as it seems to
be the only source of relief to be had
from this situation of delays and pro-
-  crastination.
Mr. A. B. Slater returned from his
hunting trip to Ashnola last evening,
where he was successful in procuring aim
the finest hearts-of that much prized an-
imal'JT'uie Big Horn," that country has
produced. The horns measure fullj 18
inches and Mr. Slater feels that he is
anipl^ repaid for his trip. He leaves on
tomorrow's stage for his home in England, travelling via Vancouver and San
Francisco. He expects to sail from New
York in time to reach home for Christmas, when he will meet his brother who
has just returned from the South African
campaign. Mr. Slater will probably
visit Princeton again next summer and
repeat his hunting trip.
Vancouver Waking Up.
It is with great satisfaction that
The Province notes today the formation of the Vancouver Citizen's
Association for the express purpose
of advancing the interests of this
city. The suggestion that citizens
should so organize was made in
these columns some time ago and
it is gratifying to observe that it
has now been acted upon.
The new association  has  plenty
of useful work at hand,  and  it  is
trusted that no effort will be spared
towards making its work a success.
The necessity  of direct steamship
communication with the north, the
establishment of the mint  in  Van-
N   couver, and direct railway  connec-
VV tion with the Similkameen,   Kere-
VNneos  and  Kootenay   districts are
fi Yee serviceable  planks  in a pro-
gn Vsive platform.
\ Ml three are absolutely needed if
this city is ever to become the great
comi nercial port which its best
frien\ ds believe it destined to be,
and ik \o citizen can consider any effort tJW>o great' in the endeavor to
obtAJr\ them.

tions for a royal good time on
1 eve in the Harris-Mcintosh
hall. It is the intention to have a programme of songs and recitations after
which will come the High Jinks for the
young ones which will consist of a genuine Santa Claus, with a complete out-fit
of toys, candies, nuts and popcorn, and
may be an apple thrown in for the good
boys and girls.- Every boy and girl from
Otter Flat to 20-Mile is invited to come,
and will receive some token of remetn-
berance of the day of Christ's birth. The
older ones are also cordially invited and
probably if they are right good they will
receive some candy also. After the
Chrstmas tree there will be a grand ball
and lunch for which 50 cents   will be
School Question Again.
The school question was revived again
by the arrival on last-Saturday's stage of
Mr. Wm. Burns, ckief Superintendent of
Schools. Mr. Burns was driven down to
the Allison townsite, and on returning to
Princeton was shown the proposed school
site at this place and Princeton's advantage as a central location for a school.
Inspector Burns is satisfied that. the
Princeton location will answer the immediate requirements of the district. A
temporary building can be found for the
school and a teacher selected pending the
completion of the new school house.
The government will forward the necessary djptfetions for the election of the
School Trustees, and as soon as they are
appointed, a teacher can be chosen to
carry on Princeton's educational system.
Personal flention.
In this issne we publish by request an
article on "Good Roads," which we are
only too glad to give space in our columns.
We are very much in need of roads of
any description and we have an idea that
even a bad road would be acceptable in
preference to none" at all. This portion
of the country should co-operate in every
way possible in the movement, which is
bound to be of great benefit to the whole
Work was started the middle of the
week in getting out the timbers for the

Another application for a railway charter has been received
at the Star office. The new charter provides for a line of railway commencing at Vancouver thence running to Westminister, crossing the Fraser river and proceeding to Hope on the
south bank, thence following the Coquekahla, Cold Water,
Otter and Tulameen rivers to Princeton, thence to Grand
Forks via the Similkameen River, Osooyos Lake Kettle
River and Midway. The application also asks power to build
branches to Nicola Lake and.to the head waters of the Tulameen. The new charter practically covers the best route of
the much talked of Coast and Kootenay line and will receive
the support of every resident in the district.
K/^  Government Buildings.
ynjthis issue will be found an advertisement for bids for the^-building of the
Government buildinga^Princeton. The
story will be one story high, with a large
basement, 46x45 in dimentions. It is
thought by some that owing to cost of
material in this part of the   country, the
plans arifl gpwifiparipnfi fgntintfrp carried
out <Vvr fin» Tnffnpy appropriate Considerable of tlie material will have to be
shipped in from outside points, which
will cause delay and a great deal of extra expense.
It is to be regretted that those who
drew up the plans could not have foreseen these difficulties and made the plans
according to the circumstances. It is
pretty hard for those at. the coast to
realize that Princeton is in an issolated
condition and that the cost of such items
as oak, countejs^cedar posts,  etc,   when
have been far out of proporH '>.p their
real value.   •
Travellers to Hartford Junction over
the wagon road, by day or night, should

of the drivers for Vaughan & Mclnnis,
whose slaughter house is near the Junction; was enroute thither when two big
specimens of the felis Canadiensis, or
lynx, barred the road and would not give
way. Returning to town 'for firearms,
the brave butcher gave chase to the animals and succeeded in shooting one—

Councils, addressed meetings of the rate

distinctly local, and while the suggestions were drawn largely from a general
[>lan, yet they appeared to be dealing
with that particular Municipality, and
suggestions made for the change of system and methods, appeared so pertinent
and'reasonable that in a very short time
a few by-laws to bring about these
changes were introduced' and carried.

in urging others to follow, so that you

"It appears to me that your chief object should be to educate the people in
how roads should be made and the economy of doing work so far as possible in a
finished manner, consistent with the requirements of travel; what kind of implements should be employed to do the
work easily, cheaply and well; how
these should be operated ; and create a
general interest in the question, and a
sympathy in improvement as rapidly as
possible, consistent with other consider-

for you to make use of all the associations in the Province, You should have
no difficulty in enlisting the active support of every organized body, commercial, industrial and agricultural. Your
present Department of Government in
charge of roads should be used not only
to assist you in carrying on this work of
education but should follow up the practical end by giving exhibitions in the
different parts of the Province in practical road making. Short sections of a
street in towns and villages, and short
ons of roads in the more populous
communities should be made and due

There were 35 men on the Snowshoe
payroll last month.
Rich ore has teen encountered, on the
Remington, in Summit camp. .
Another small spur was put in at the
. roar of Old Ironsides shaft house No 2
last week.
The Buckhorn in Deadvtood camp, is
expected to resume operations about the
first of next month.

Buckhorn ore, from the Granby smelter

The drift being run on the 100-foot
level of the Rambler, near Eholt, struck

The Boundary Falls smelter has secured a contract for 2,000 tons of ore from
the Carmi, np West Fork.
This week the C. P. R. boarding train
came up to Phoenix, and the men are
now busy putting in a sidetrack at the
Snowshoe, to facilitate shipments.
L. C. Crawford, who visited the R.

Last Saturday was pay day at the office
of the Miner-Graves syndicate, when
over 250 .men received their monthly
checks, amounting to something like
$30,000.
The Sunset and Crown Silver, in Dead-
wood camp, owned by the Montreal-
Boundary Creek Mining Co., is to be
taken over and* worked by the Montreal-
Boston Copper Co.—Pioneer.
A consolidation of no small importance of several well known properties in
this camp, is not improbable, says the
Pioneer. The properties included are
•the Gold Drop, Rawhide ^Monarch, Tatn-
arac and one or two adjoining fractions.
Details of the proposed new company are
not yet given oui. The claims referred
to adjoin the Snowshoe, which is now being successfully operated. The properties are all favorably known of among
mining men familiar with this section,
and all have phenomenal showings.
The Gold Drop is owned by the Gold
Drop Mining Co., of which Thos. C.
Bxainerd (president of the Hamilton
Powder Co.) is president. It- has had
nearly 3,000 feet of development work
done, but it is claimed that much of this
was not to the best of advantage. The
Rawhide is owned by the Dominion Copper Co., and has a 500.foot tunnel in
country rock. Here, also, it is asserted,
he work was not done where the best
showing is made. The Monarch and
Tamarac have only prospect shafts, but,
like the other adjoining claims, have
fine surface showings.

From Utah Mr.. Williams journed to
Denver He -had not registered at a
hotel io minuses, before his identity
was known, and be was besieged by
newspaper reporters, anxious to learn

Coloiado_Springs, and passed' several
very pleasant days there. Then hie visited Cripple Creek and Victor. In the

inspected a number while he was away,
but none of them were better equipped
