PRINCETON, MAY 9,  1903.
RAN FIRST TRAIN
On
Fraser   River Branch of
Great Northern.
The rails are laid on the Great Northern extension to the mouth of the Fraser
River, and the first worktrain to make
the through trip went over the line yesterday from Cloverdale to Port Guichon,
says the Vancouver Province of April 28.
'* The length of the new line is about
sixteen miles, and it will be formally
opened in a few days. Work has been
rushed, in order to get the line completed before the ist of May in order to take
advantage of the by-law passed by the
city of Victoria to aid the Victoria-Terminal scheme, of which this is a part.
The line has been built by Guthrie &
Company.
" The steamer Victorian, which has
been overhauled in Victoria, will start
the service some time this week, it is expected, in order that the ferry part of the
contract may be fulfilled as well. The
dock at Port Guichon is still under construction."
Word comes from the Boundary of
preparations being made for work on
Great Northern between Grand Forks
and Phoenix. The larger part of the
right-of-way—some 24 miles—has been
secured and much of it paid for and the
deeds delivered, including the Granby
smelter spur.
Jas. J. Hill, president of the Great Northern, has only just returned from a trip
to Europe, and the definite plans of location are probably now being submitted
to him for approval. He will give
final word to proceed.
GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
' Smith Curtis wants the passage of the
Vernon & Nelson Company Act made
conditional on ascertaining at what price
the entire undertaking can be acquired

The May issue of the British Columbia
Mining Record published at Victoria,
contains a very full account of the big
mining convention held in the capital
city last February, which was attended
by over 300 delegates from all porti
of the Province. The convention article
is suitably embellished with cuts <rf the
oflBcers and members of the executive,
including one of A. E. Howse of Nicola
Lake, the executive representative of the
Nicola and Similkameen districts.
WILL HOLD DEBATE
On Question, " Is Marriage <
Failure ? "
At the meeting of the Princeton branch 1
of the Provincial Mining Association on
the evening of the 6th inst., it was decided to hold an open meeting on Friday
15th, and to vary the program by
holding a debate on the question, " Is
marriage a failure ?" Messrs. Ernest
Waterman and F. W. Groves will uphold
the advantages of the matrimonial state,
while Wm. Knight and G. E. Winkler
will present the other side of the question.
The meeting will be held in the dining
room of the'Hotel Tulameen, and the
public is cordially invited—especially the;
The meeting hour is 8 p. m. An inter-*
esting time—for the married men—may
be confidently expected, unless Mr.
Knight's plans totally miscarry.
In order to get through with some important business, a meeting of the members of the association will be held Monday evening, April nth, at 8 p. m.
The principal matters to be discussed
are the bylaws and rules of order, draw
up by a special committee last week,
resolution respecting the Provincial
Mineralogist which was laid on the table
at the last meeting, and a motion relating to the appointment and duties of
-mine inspectors, which will be introduced   by the Vice-President, Wm. Knight.
A full attendance of  members   is  earnestly requested   at   the   Monday night
meeting.   No one   that is   not "dead
the world " will   miss  the Friday night
meeting for love or money.
MAIL SERVICE

This Week.
Slowly but surely in spite of the many
drawbacks to which it has been subjected through scheming railway cliques and
shortsighted governments, this district is
progressing.
is not so very long since it was considered so unimportant that only one
mail a month was allowed it. From this
infantile stage it grew until it was given
a weekly service, and this week another
step forward was made by the inauguration of a second mail a week, coming in
via Penticton, and serving as well as
Princeton, other points in the Similkameen between here and the Okanagan.
The first mail was a very light one, the
post office people having evidently failed'
to forward mail accumulating at Spence's
Bridge and Kamloops, but no doubt this
will be better attended to in future.

AFTER THE PROVINCIAL MINERALOGIST.
A committee consisting of President
Keen and A. E. Howse, representing the
Provincial Mining Association, waited
upon the Provincial Mineralogist at Victoria and laid various matters before him.
The interview was made a very frank
one, and opinions on various matters
were freely exchanged. The result was
quite satisfactory, and the committee believe that Mr. Robertson will be agreeable to meet their wishes, in many particulars. One of the subjects under discussion was the advisability of getting
comprehensive quarterly reports upon
the mining industry rather than the
present annual report. This is a mi
which the committee press for. ]
dental with these quarterly reports, they
ask for a little more optimism than
usually shown in Mr. Robertson's i
ports. This, it is believed, would be
the best interests of the country. The
report should be prepared in such a 1
ner as to give a good idea of the cou
treated of in it. Men having practical
knowledge of the mines can always be
relied upon to assist in this work,
preparation of quarterly reports ■ would,
in the opinion of the association, keep
up to date information on the mining
dustry available for the public and would
attract capital to the province.
Geo. R. Philp returned on Sunday']
stage to Nicola Lake.
Messrs. Burr and Jones are about to do
assessment .work on the Key West and

THE ROYAL COMMISSION.
. Royal commissions are usually
regarded as an expedient and harmless way for a government,—suspected of corruption and having
much to conceal,—to investigate its
own acts and find itself innocent.
The experience of the Prior and
Dunsmuir governments however,
would lead to the conclusion that
either royal commissions have their
drawbacks as whitewash brushes,or
else that the Victoria clique lacks
expertness in handling its creature.
Both the Curtis and Oliver commissions have proved veritable Fraiik-
ensteins to their creators.
Prior, to save himself, seems
willing to sacrifice Eberts and
Wells, but the latter object most
strenuously to being sacrificed, and
will probably pull their leader into
the mire along with them rather
than go down alone.
It appears incredible that the
Premier could be so long associated
with such men without becoming
cognizant of their evil deeds, and it
will be difficult indeed for him to
convince the public of his innocence.
The revelations of crookedness
made, or strongly indicated by the
evidence given before the cemmit-
tee, do more than simply implicate
the members of the cabinet. They
reflect severely on several members
of the opposition.
It will be remembered that Joseph Martin, who hopes as leader of
the provincial liberals to be the
next Premier of the Province, supported and defended the Columbia
& Western land grant last session.
Does it appear probable that John
Oliver discovered what Martin fail-
itdta see ? Either we must" 'aSffit
this unlikely possibility, or else
Martin stands convicted of attempting to aid the C. P. R in one of the
biggest grab games in the history
of a grabbing corporation. No one
acquainted with the devious ways
of politicians in general, will believe he lent his aid to the C. P. R.
without receiving a substantial
quid pro quo.
3 LOVE OF POWER.
Ambition and love of power are
not to be ruthlessly condemned as
evil traits in a man. On the contrary Ruskin classes them as a
blessing to-theTacewhen exercised
for good purposes. That they are
often associated with extreme selfishness and prostituted to the ignoble end of seeking only the ad-
antage of their possessor instead
of the welfare of his fellows, is a lamentable fact which British Columbia in particular, of all the Canadian provinces, has learned from bitter experience.
This Province is cursed with a
plethora of self-seeking political
leaders.
In a legislature composed of 38
members, it is difficult to say
whether there are not more leaders
(?) than followers. With most of
these self-constituted captains of
statecraft, the idea seems to be
that they will be " all or nothing."
As an inevitable result they are us-
illy jjjjj nothing," and soon pass into the ranks of the " has beens."
But for evidence of perverted desires for power there is no necessity
as a rule to look at our local legislature. Almost any small community will show men refusing to
work in harmony with their neighbors for the ooject of achieving
some useful purpose, simply and
solely because they were not selected as the leaders of the movement.
Such men do not greatly injure the
se to which they refuse their
more often they injure only
themselves.
EXCHANGE  COMMENTS.
That was a narrow squeak that
the Prior government had at Victoria last week, when it took the
speaker's vote to carry on a divis-
Some one recently asked
where Smith Curtis had been. It
was his resolution that brought the
matter up and very nearly defeated
the   government.—Phoenix   Pion-
Hon. Mr. Wells has made an utter failure in his attempt to show
why he kept those $10,000,000
deeds back from the C. P. R., and
his friend and colleague, Hon. Mr.
Eberts, looking as wise and secretive as owl, says, " I can't tell why.
Ask Wells." Mr. Wells replieth
not, and our venerable lieutenant-
governor   seemingly doesn't know
what to do about the government's
Cancellation Bill, which was intended to make a way out for Mr.We^ls
after his egregious blundering.
There are those who say that behind the whole matter there lurks
the proverbial huge African gentleman of the woodpile.—Vancouver
Independent.
A Pennsylvania lawyer once put
in on behalf of a client, whose cow
had been killed on a railroad track
the following plea, which we com
mead to the Committee of the
Hoiise of Commons on Cattle
Guards : " If the train had been
run as it should have been ran, or
if the bell had been rung as it
should have been rang, or if the
whistle had been blown as it should
have been blew, both of which they
did neither, the cow would not
have been injured when she was
killed."—Toronto Globe.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
Prejudiced Critics.
The Vancouver Province and oth-
w er apologists for the Prior government are very much exercised over
the fact that Smith Curtis and a
few other honest members in the
legislature are successfully,frustrating the efforts of the government to
hand over the province to the ten-
T der mercies of the Canadian Pacific
railway. Their course is nothing
but obstruction in the eyes of these
organs. The great majority of the
people heartily commend that sort
of obstruction. Were it not for the
faithful efforts of Smith Curtis,
John Oliver and one or two other
members, the C. P. R. would today
be the owners of additional millions
of acres of valuable lands which it
never earned. In a legislature in
which graft reigns supreme, where
members of the government and
members of the legislature are always quick to advance the interests
of big corporations and always
slow to protect the interests of the
people, a few honest men- like
Smith Curtis and John Oliver can
do and do much in safe-guarding
the public interest. They need not
worry about the criticism of C.P.R.
newspapers and the government organs, because they will enjoy what j
is of much greater importance, the
appreciation of the people of British
Columbia.
There is no novelty in the course
pursued by the Province. Men of
integrity in public life, men who
have been the most aggressive in
withstanding the onslaughts of
greedy and unscrupulous corporations have always been targets forthe abuse of corporation journals. It was chiefly due
to the restless energy and great
ability of Smith Curtis that the
northern part of the province was
saved last year, and the same source
can be thanked for the preservation
of the southeastern portion this
year. It is results that count.
Smith Curtis has remained true and
is always found fighting the battles
of the people.—Boundary Creek
Times     	
A Story With a Bad Moral.
In a prosperous town in   Mexico
lives   a   merchant   whose   wealth
grew out of a combination of good
luck and drunkenness. An uncontrollable desire for drink cost him
position after position, and he drifted down to Mexico and became a
news agent. He sold lottery tickets. He had to report on drawing
day what unsold tickets he had and
forward them. He got drunk the
day before one of the big.drawings.
Two days later he sobered up and
found himself in possession of several hundred dollars' worth of unsold tickets. He did not possess
$10 in the world. He examined
the list and found that a number of
the unsold tickets had drawn prizes
aggregating $35,000 in gold. He
collected the winnings, paid for the.
unsold tickets and took an oath of
perpetual total abstinence. That
was years ago. He has never
touched liquor since and is today a
wealthy man. The moral is bad,
but the story is too good to suppress.
More Valuable Things Lost.
When the judge makes a joke
everyone must laugh. That is a
matter of course. Sometimes, however, the joke is really funny, as in
the following instance:
During the hearing of a case a
man was moving about in the rear
of the court, moving chairs and disturbing things generally.
"Young man," the judge said,
at length, looking at him sternly,
" You are making a great deal of
noise."
" My lord," was the reply. "The
fact is that I have lost my overcoat,
and I am endeavoring to find it."
" Well," was the ready comment,
" people often lose whole suits in
here without making half as much
disturbance."

Propnties of Copper.
The tensile strength of copper is
dependent on the size of the crystal unit, the larger, longer crystals
making a much stronger fibre than
the smaller, granular ones. Con-
euctivity, on the other hand, is dependent on the chemical purity ofl
the metal. High conductivity can
therefore be attained in any copper
by subjecting it to electrolysis, that
is, decomposing the metal in an
acid bath by means of an electric
current and redeposing it, after
which it is melted and cast into in
gots, bars or other forms for the
jobber or manufacturer.
The blister copper output of the
Granby smelter is refined by electricity. The copper anodes or cakes
are suspended in an acid bath
subjected to a high voltage. The
cakes are decomposed, the metal
passes into solution and all the foreign elements fall to the bottom of
the tank. The copper, however,
carried by the electrical current to
tlje negative pole in the bath.where
the current is passing out. There
the copper is redeposited as a cathode in a chemically pure state. It
is entirely free from foreign elements and ranks 101 or even higher in conductivity. That is, it is i
per cent, or more better than the
standard demands. But the crystals built up in the electrical deposition are much smaller and more
granular than those existing in
the Michigan native copper, and
therefore the tensile strength and
ductility are relatively lower.—
