CUTTING IT SHORT
ELECTION DAY W@tt
The Provincial General Elections Will be Heltf on October 3rd—McBride's
Fateful Day.
The announcement made by proclamation that the date of the provincial elections had been-fixed for October 3rd and
nominations ori September 19th is r
in line with the unfair tactics pursued
by the McBride government'js}itfg£;',tlie
day he formed his ministry. It was
nounced by the newspaper organs of the
government a month ago that Octpbs
31st would be polltajatday and voters
generally  understood that would be the
The real and apparent.purpose' of this
coarse deception  in " Dick's"  dictui
to  disconcert  the  Liberals  and cap
them by strategy  if possible.   The i
or political party guilty of deceit'1 §0 base
can hardly win the confidence of anyone,
since  he   or. they  may"trick  friends
the same manner.
The Liberals have not- been caught
napping, they only despise the meal
entrap them. Electors will now observe
that there is scarcely a political offence
the enormity of which would deter eithei
doubtful " Dick " or his ministry from
doing.
. Almost positive of victory in this riding as the Liberals are, there can be nc
relaxation from "eternal vigilance," foi
who can tell the snares and ambuscades
of the political desperadoes at Jan
Bay ? Every voter in this riding should
either hear or interview the Liberal
didate, W. A. McLean,„ within the...next
three weeks, and thus form an intelligent
Qpinion of the merits of the two parties

Unusual Weather.
The term "dry belt" could not be applied to this district with any regard for
truth during the past six months as there
has scarcely been a week without; \&
thunderstorm or a drizzling rain. No
recollection of- so much wet weather and-
average low temperature cany]f^|3nj^|
among the older residents. Withal, however, the climate is healthy, invigorat-'
ing and recuperative, being especially favorable for asthmatic or catarrhal complaints.   Ranchers have splendid crops,
the only diffi<5BrtQj*|e{SJjJ5to save tbemj
properly, but should the weather change
for the better, late as it is, a large quantity of hay . and grain will yet be garnered. All livestock are in the pink of
condition and a poor animal would be
a curiosity. Cattle literally wallow in
grass. All kinds of small fruits and garden produce are abundant but the market
for them is limited. Recent hard frosts
and" & little thin ice in places, togeth
with snow on the Hope mountains a
chilling samples of the unusual weather
here. Some weather prophets predict'a
fine" autumn and an open winter—may
they not prove false.
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
Brief News Notes and Personal Mention of the Moving Throng.
A. Gallinge^oJyBoulder creek was in
town'yesterday and reports development
work going on at the Cousin Jack. He
had little to say about the mine or its
prospects. Evidently he believes and
practises the old- adage : "Say nothing,
but saw wood."
C. F.   Law   of  Vancouver arrived
Otter Flat last Saturday.    He is exam:
ing his investmentg--there with a view
further development. v'He' will work his
Bear creek property all winter.
G. L. Mason has received a missionary
appointment at Glenemma, Okanagan
district, not Grande Prairie as erroneously
stated last week. Mr. Mason has household effects, etc., to dispose of at his
ranch prior to departure ist October.
The marriage of Miss Annie Revely,
sister of Messrs. Fred, and Charles Revely
of Hedley and. Penjl^QiJ^[ to Dr Farish
in Vancouver on Sept. 2, was a notable
, society event, both of the principals being
popular and highly esteemed.
F. P. Cook and family with Henry
Woodward, father of Mrs. Cook, \
in Princeton Wednesday on a visit.
Woodward is one of the earliest pioneers
of the country. He is over 80 years old,
and .only for a little deafness is in good
jhealth of mind and body. Mr. Woodward is an example of the remarkable
.longevity of life to which this climate
,so conducive.
The Cousin Jack ore recently assayed
at the Granby smelter returns gold, 2 ozs.,
copper, 6 per cent., and silver, in all
about $50 per ton. The Cousin Jack and
the Nickel Plate seem .tg. be related, so
far as values go. The contract for a
.100-foot tunnel has been let to P. Burns.
Rev. J. Stewart has received notice
from the Presbyterian home mission
board of his transfer to Fairview and
Okanagan Falls mission field. He will
begin his labors there on the first Sunday
in October. Mr. Stewart has been here
but a few months and rather regretfully
accepts his marching orders since having
made many friends here and enjoyed
the natural beauties of Princeton and
' lity.
LABOR HAS PUYDAY
HEDLEY  EN FETE
SfpSpays of Sport and Pas=
time—Citizens are Excellent Hosts-Uncle Sam
Sends Cousins.
Labor Day was celebrated at Hedley
by a large concourse of people from all
parts of the Similkameen riding. Some
two or three coach loads of merrymaking
American cousins came from Loomis,
Wash., to join in the festivities and fra
ternize with the good people of Hedley.
The weather was not the usual bright
sky and cheerful sun characteristic of
the.Vklley. This was attributed to the
comet which has recently been observed
to flirt with Old Sol by the astronomers.
Hedley may be said to have "done
lS2ir Sroiid" in entertainment, sport and
pastime. The great mines of the Nickel
Plate and the immense works of the Yah
Reduction Co. were an instructive attraction and an object lesson of what the
whole district is capable of.
The services of D. Bowetf'is conductor
of the various events and those of the
secretary-treasurer, F. H. French,
tributed largely to the success of the day
while the judges gave decided satisfac
tion to the public and contestants gen-

Letters to the " Star."
The Star is in receipt of numerous
letters inquiring about Princeton and the
contiguous districts. To partially supply,
at least, the desired information two lines
are inserted in the heading of the front
page giving briefly resources and requirements of the country. • Suggestions from
readers as to the best manner of supplying general information in the space referred to will be gladly received. Of
course the best way to keep informed
about this country is to become a subscriber to the paper. The Star has consistently and to the best of its ability
striven for the interests of all, giving
only such news as is deemed reliable and
of general concern. Its struggle for
a mere existence has never beclouded its
faith in the great future of the Similkameen, a realization of which will surely
be felt with the building of the railway.
Thus, without egotism or vanity, the
Star, thankfully appreciative of past
support, believes it is deserving of much
better patronage both at home and
abroad and respectfully solicits an increase of subscriptions and advertising;
"Col." J. Downing, veteran of the
Fenian raid, in which he was shot at 13
times, none having stopped him, has got
a few days' furlough from the A. E.
Howse Co. to visit his family in Vancouver. He is thoroughly equipped for the
journey over the mountains with weapons of all designs, in fact he may be
likened to a portable arsenal. He hopes
to fall in with a grizzly or two and some
cougars and vows that he won't be treed
by anything having four feet. Au revoir
"Col."
Mrs. Chas. Richter is the guest of Mrs.
Luke Gibson for a few days.
J. A. Mohr has recently located a coal
claim on the north bank of the Tulameen
and underlying the townsite of Otter
Flat. He discovered it eight years ago
by an outcrop three feet wide which he
covered up, keeping an "eye" on it for
future use. It is an extension of Collins
Gulch.

MINING ASSOCIATION.
The executive of the British Co*!
lumbia Mining Association at its
recent session in Rossland made
common sense suggestions regard?
ing the disposition of the people's
coal areas by the government. It
also passed a common sense resolution to elicit from political candidates their standing in relation to
the mining industry. As a rule,
associations and other public bodies
fear to specify a certain line of
•conduct for the government to pursue lest tt might embarrass it or
incur the ill will of legislators.
That fear is not well founded. For,
why should a government be loth
to receive friendly counsel on anything of public interest, such as the
reservation of coal lands from private or monopolistic exploitation ?
X level headed and influential body
of men, such as the mining executive, are in a ■ position to give the
government pointers which would
morally and materially assist in
beneficial legislation.
It is refreshing, therefore, to know
that the Mining Association is not
lacking in courage to indicate, and
if necessary dictate, to any government so void of reason as to part
with our coal areas to great monopolies which operate them to the
detriment of the mining industry.
The Association does not look at
things through colored or political
glasses, hence its businesslike action
will have the hearty appreciation of J
all outside of the monopolist or
professional politician.
Another commendable function of J
the executive was the propounding
of nine simple questions to candidates, .all vital to successful mine
operations. To conduct an intelligent campaign a candidate must receive and impart information relative to public interests. Voters
should know the exact bearings of
prospective legislators on all that
pertains to the welfare of the country. No candidate !£an afford to
evade or Jignpre questions which
are of particular concern to all in
the Similkameen and other mining
districts.
From the very nature and constitution of the Association it will
have to deal with political matters
so far as they affect mining. Its
usefulness largely depends on its
common sense recommendations
made from time to time to the government and legislators generally
and its total abstinence from everything that savors of partizan politics. It will, no doubt, go on adding to its numbers and widening its
sphere of influence until no government will dare to slough off the
rights and heritages of the people
in return for monopolistic bribes
or grafter perquisites.
The imputation made by certain
newspapers that the Association
had manifested a purely political
bias at its Rossland session cannot
be substantiated. Those editors are
so brain-warped and suspicious
that nothing to them seems pure,
honest and of good intent. But
there is not time to wait on them.
Every man who desires to be in the
van of progress and up-to-date
in all that affects mining should be
a member of the Mining Association and thus aid in securing reforms and improved legislation.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
W. A. McLean, the Liberal candidate for the Similkameen, knows
the requirements of this dist^c^jn!
all its details having been a resident
here and in the Kootenays for many
years. He has been a railroad contractor and his knowledge and experience in this line will be of great
service in the legislature on the
debates regarding the Coast-Kootenay. He is thoroughly conusant
with mining and being a working-
man is in sympathy with miners
and all workingmen. Ready in
speech and of sound judgment he
will be a valuable acquisition to the
new house.
Bringing on the provincial elections a month earner._ than was
anticipated will not alter the waning confidence of the electors in the
McBride government. It will, however, have two good effects—one
will shorten the life of the present
decadent administration and the
second is the beginning of a new
era of party government under
Liberal auspices.

MINING RESOLUTIONS.
Active Campaign Proposed by Provincial Association.
The executive of the Mining Associa'J
tion of British Columbia has resolved to
carry the war for reforms in connection
'with mining legislation into practical
politics.
It was moved by Messrs. Gait and
Howse that every candidate for election
to the legislature in the provincial elections be interrogated as to whether he
was in favor of the objects aimed at by
the association, and as t:o whether1 he
would support theaims of the organization by his vote and influence if elected.
This was in a general sense, but the following were particularized :     I
1. To repeal the 2 per cent. tax.
2. To amend the Mineral Act, stfmto
provide "that failure to keep up a free
miner's license shall not operate as a
complete forfeiture of rights acquired
under it, but that some reasonable previsions be adopted for extension of time
. winfili which the certificate must be renewed.
3. To entifie|3ier &m
claims to tyife^use of the
claims, for any purpose,
position of the royalty no
4. Crown grants on mineral cl
be reduced from #25 to $16.
5. To inquire into the operati
Boiler Inspection Act, with a view of
ascertaining to what extent the said act
works unnecessary   expense   upon - the
s of mineral
mber on such
fthout the im-
a of the
operators and owners of steam boilers,'
and to remove, by ^mendmeqt, any just
grievance.
6. To amend the Placer MininglA.ct,
■enaBleTiolders of placer claims tosecrare
title thereto by crown grants.
7. To pass a conciliation act for the
settlement of labor troubles.
8. To revise and consolidate the acts
relating to quartz and placer mining, to
remove numerous anomalies in the e:
ing acts, and to simplify the laws relating
ton
9. The desirability of opening Indian
reserves throughout the province, for
mining purposes.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
Very Appropriate Questions.
Editor Star—Sir: As the political
contest is now fairly started and we, the
electors, expect the Hon. Richard McBride here discussing the Coast-Kootenay
railroad, the main plank in his platform,
we hope he will bring in with him the
Hon. ex-governor Dewdney, his political
godfather, and for whom he stumped the
New Westminster district against Aulay
Morrison, M.P.
The ex-gov. should explain to the
electorate who it was employed him to
frame such a damaging report of the resources of the Similkameen district. The
Hon. Richard was minister of mines
when the survey was made by the Hon.
ex-gov. Dewdney. Was it Shaughnessy ,the
C.P.R. president, who made the report
above referred to, with Dewdney's signature attached ? Was it made to discourage Tim Hill from coming over the Hope
mountains with his railway ? We elec
tors believe that the C.P.R. was at the
bottom of that damaging report.
We should also ask the Hon. Premier
and Minister of Lands and Works why
laborers on the public roads in this
trict only get $2.50 per day when they
are paid $3.00 per day in the Boundary,
Slocan and Rossland districts. Living
much higher in the Similkameen district
owing to the long haul of freight by
wagon. We know that laboring
will resent this discrimination in wages
at the polls in favor of the Liberal cai
didate on the 31st October.
Balw)T Box.
A Good Cause.
The Rossland meeting of the executive
of the Provincial Mining Association has
been productive  of much   good.    The
association has made it plain that it does
not for a moment intend to conform to
the creed of any political party oi
tion, but that any candidate at the forthcoming provincial elections must act
conformity with the aims of the Provi
cial Mining Association, if he hopes
have the support of the members of the
association and be successful in his
didature.    No man   can   expect  t
elected who does not positively declare
himself as being   in   favor of the pro-
nounciamento of the association.
By continuing to pursue such a policy
as this the Provincial Mining Association
will undoubtedly gain great strength
British Columbia. By doing anything
else the association would stultify itself
and make itself ridiculous and its present
aims wholly abortive.
The Provincial Mining Association is
composed of men of every political party
in British Columbia, and all those who
have joined the association seem inclined
to place the urgent needs of the country
first and politics quite as a secondary con
sideration. As the association has already a large and very generally distributed membership, which will, ii
probability, be doubled within the next
six months, it is destined to be an '
portant factor in creating a healthy public spirit that hitherto has been conspicuous by its absence.
Under a non-party system of government a truly scandalous state of affairs
obtained. Under the recently adopted
party line system we have no positive
assurance that either side will do its
whole duty to the people without fear or
favor. It should, therefore, be plainly
apparent to all that the Provincial Mining Association deserves great credit and
the most loyal support of everybody.—
Rossland Miner.
