A NEW COAL CO'Y
To   Operate in   Similkameen
Organized in Spokane.
Mr. Frank Bailey of Similkameen City,
arrived in Princeton last Saturday, having just returned from a two month's
trip to Spokane and the Boundary country.
Interviewed for the Star, Mr. Bailey
stated that during his visit to Spokane he
found that the business men of the city
were somewhat. chary about interesting
themselves in investments in the Similkameen or any other mining district,
owing to the fact of their having had severe losses in their dealings with Republic mining stocks, but notwithstanding
this, he succeeded in placing several Similkameen City town lots with prominent
Spokane people.
While in Spokane he succeeded in
^forming & syndicate for the purpose of
^fjrganizing a Coal and Townsite Co.,
which has recently purchased a parcel of
land north of Princeton from Mrs. Allison, the objects of this company being
to develop their extensive coal holdings
ithev
inity.
The company will be formed under the
laws of British Columbia with a particularly broad charter, and the promoters
stock is already on the market in Spokane and the Boundary, and it is expected that most of the treasury stock will be
sold in New York and Eastern Canada.
The present intentions are to organize
as quickly as possible in order to take advantage of the boom which it is generally acknowledged will take place in this
district in the coming summer.
The company has seven square miles of
coal lands well situated in the Princeton
coal basin, which they intend to prospect with a bore drill in order to determine the value of their holdings.
The immediate construction of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific Railways through the Simr
ilkameen Valley, is already attracting
considerable attention throughout Canada and the United States, especially
among the class of capitalists, both large
and small, who are looking for a thoroughly safe investment.
Mr. Bailey believes Princeton has been
endowed by nature to become one of the
largest cities of the interior, situated as it
is in the centre of a vast coal basin which,
when developed, will give employment
to thousands of miners.
Mr. Bailey states he met several Similkameen friends in Spokane, amongst
whom were A. Jacobson and O. Johnson,
who sold their interest in the Copper
Cliff and Mound mineral claims in Camp
Hedley to the Nickel Plate Company.
They are now building a brick block on
PKACIKALLY DISFRANCHISED
Is Hedley City Through Action of Returning
Officer Rowlands*
D. W. Rowlands, the recently appointed returning officer for West Yale came
in last Saturday on the stage, on business
connected with the election taking place
on the 26th of next month.
Mr. C. E. Thomas, the postmaster, was
authorized to act as deputy returning
officer for thi", polling place.
Mr. Rowlands returned to Ashcroft
Sunday morning on the outgoing stage.
While here he was interviewed by a couple
of prominent residents regarding the necessity for making Hedley City a polling
place, and the fact was pointed out to
him that a large number of the voters in
this part of the riding were now living in
Hedley, and it would be a difficult matter
for them to vote here.
Mr. Rowlands claimed that he had no
authority to make Hedley a polling
place, and could only do so by an order-
in-council.
This is looked upon as a flimsy excuse
by the people of Princeton, and the action of the returning officer is regarded
as an evidence of the government's desire to reduce the Similkameen vote as
low as possible, feeling no doubt it has
little to hope for in the way of support
from this portion of the constituency—a
feeling that is founded on good grounds.
The act defining the boundaries of this
riding shows plainly that Hedley City
in West Yale, although   for some   une
plainable reason the voters there in past
elections   have voted for the   East Yale
candidates for the legislature.
As the vote in Hedley camp has been
a very small one in former elections.very
little attention was paid to this anomalous condition of affairs, but now that
Hedley has become a place of some importance, this continued neglect is difficult to understand, except for the advantage it might give the government in a
close contest.
Main Street, Spokane, with the proceeds.
He also saw Mr. Wheeler, who was on
his way to New York to float his Friday
Creek properties.
LITTLE  SYMPATHY.
Down at the coast the newspapers are
speculating on the recent alleged utterances of James J. Hill, to the effect that
he did not intend to bnild his line
through to the coast on the V., V. & E.
charter, but would tap the Boundary and
the Similkameen, says the Phoenix Pioneer. As the coast business men have
been so apathetic in years past about direct Coast-Kootenay connections, they
will not receive much sympathy from
the interior. What is needed here is direct connection with a competing railway, and it is now assured. Had the
coast people quit chasing rainbows some
years since, they would be be&er off today. However, between the Grand
Trunk, the Canada Northern, Mackenzie
& Mann and Mr. Hill, to say nothing of
a land giving government, they may see
the fruition of their belated hopes.
Luke Gibson received last week the
sad intelligence that a brother of his living in the Atlin country was lost last
November while on a trip with two mail
carriers, and it was greatly feared had
perished, as no word had since beea received of him,

A new writ  has   been   issued   for the

The following extract is from the Mining and Scientific Press of the 10th inst,
published at San Francisco:
" The Osoyoos and Similkameen Coal
and Exploration Co., of Spokane, Wash.,
has secured 6400 acres of coal land in the
Similkameen country, and will start development work in the spring. The
company has also secured the Princeton
townsite."
Mr. Ernest Waterman, resident manager of the Vermilion Forks Mining &
Development Co., when seen regarding
this, declared there was not one iota of
truth in the statement that the Spokane
Co. had acquired the townsite of Princeton. It is still the property of the Vermilion Forks Co.

the business like manner in which it has
handled mails and passengers for this

OFFICIAL APATHY.
The Dominion government appears to be making no move to improve the mail service in this district. Petition after petition has fallen by the wayside unheeded by the
member for Yale-Cariboo and the
postal authorities. The only sign
that a knowledge of our pressing
requirements had penetrated to Ottawa, was the advertising some
time ago for tenders for the carrying of mails twice a week from Penticton. It was thought then that
the first steps had been taken towards the providing of a better service, but it appears that the lowest
tender was altogether too low for
the work; so instead of awarding
the contract to a higher bidder, the
matter was allowed to drop.
.As a consequence Hedley City,
which has become quite a centre of
activity during the past few months,
is absolutely without mail facilities
of any kind, and the Upper Similkameen is still dependent on the
inadequate once-a-week service
from Spence's Bridge.
Some are inclined to blame the
Post Office Inspector for not having
placed the matter in a ..sufficiently strong light before the Ottawa
authorities. ..He- lias—been in this
section often enough to know the
great need for improvement.
it is said the change depends almost entirely on his recommendation.
If such be the case it is to be hoped there will be an end to the paralyzing apathy that has marked the
government's course in this matter,
and that something definite will be
done—and done quickly.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
With the refusal of John Clapper-
ton   to   represent   the    unpopular
cause of the   Prior   government
this riding, the necessity arises   for
the finding of another victim for the
sacrifice.    Why [ did   the   Premier
overlook   Princeton ?   There are a
number of  aspiring   politicians
this burg, one   of whom might be
induced to   contest   the seat for a
small matter of $5000 or so and expenses.
The order making the writ for
the West Yale election returnable
on March 2nd, means that men and
horses must be procured that will
make the trip from Princeton to
Spence's Bridge, a distance of 122
miles in two days. This trip usually occupies three days, and it will
require good men and horses to ac-
iplish it in two. , It also means
the expenditure of a considerable
sum of money that might easily
have been avoided by a different
arrangement of the dates, so that
the stage could have : been utilized
convey the ballot boxes to Spec-
e's Bridge. While a comparatively
small matter, it shows a disposition
the government's part to spend
the people's money in a careless and
extravagant manner, which carried
nto larger transactions would mean
serious loss to the provincial treasury.

President Miner Makes Announcement | Prominent Copper Men are
in it-
Montreal, Jan. 15.—The annual
meeting of the shareholders of tne
Granby Consolidated Mining Com'
pany was held today when five new
directors were appointed and president Miner announced that through
the sale of 125,000 shares of treasury stock at $4 per share, the company had been practically freed
from debt; and that unless some
thing out of the ordinary occurred,
a dividend would be paid during
the present year.
Mr. Miner stated that two i
furnaces would be established by
August, and full equipment would
be completed by March or April
following.
The week before last, four furnaces had treated 10,115 tons of ore
at cost including freight and com
mission of $2.65, a figure which he
believes in the near future would
be reduced to $2.50.
New directors elected are John
Stanton, copper statistician ; Wm.
Nicholls, president of Nicholls'
Chemical Co.; Jacob Langeloth,
president American Metal Co.;
George M. Luther, general manager Nicholls' Chemical Co., New
York, and C. S. Houghton, fir
cial agent, of Boston.
Copper   Advancing.
Several   months   ago   the   j
ones in copper market circles stated
that   toward   the end  of  the y
1902, there was likely to be an
vance  in the   market   price of the
brown metal of from one to three
cents per pourd. However, 1902
passed into history without the
prophesied advance taking place,
the average figure fluc.uating between 10^ and n}4 cents per
pound. Since the first of this year
there has been a perceptible improvement, and the outlook is
brighter for the copper market.
With the increasing demand for the
commodity and the alleged shortage of stocks on hand, it appears as
though the 14 cent price might be
reached       by      spring. Such
a price would allow a fair margin
of profit in the Boundary, where
now the profit must be, compara
tively speaking, small. The optimists predict a great future of copper.
May they prove to be true prophets
both in and out of their own country.—Phoenix Pioneer.

Why She Quit The 'Phone.
" The young woman employed as
a stenographer had a beau named
Will, to whom she talked some
twenty-five times a day," says the
Boston Recorder. "The lawyer
who labored under the impression
that he was paying for the stenographer's time was not pleased that
Maggie should drop her work
rush frantically to the telephone
every time the bell rang, and stand
there for fifteen minutes debating
whether or not Will ought to have
told Clara that secret which he
knew well enough was none of
Clara's Business. One day the law
yer left his oflice, and, going to another telephone in the building,
called up his own office. Of course
Maggie rushed frantically to the
'phone, and answered.
" 'Hello,' said the lawyer, in a
muffled voice. ' This is a lineman
testing the wire. Kindly stand one
foot in front of the receiver and say
hello.'
" Maggie obeyed.
"'Thank you. Now stand two
feet to one side and say hello.'
" Maggie complied.
" ' Thank you. Now stand two
feet on the other side and say hello.'
"It was done.
" ' Thank you. Now stand on
your head and say hello.'
" Maggie seems to be somewhat
backward in answering the telephone now."
Coal Outcrop for Fuel.
The properties of the Nicola Valley Coal and Iron Company, which
are being developed by Vancouver
capital, are looking well. Many
residents in the district are taking
out coal for winter consumption,
the company allowing them to do
so at their own expense. One
man, who took out 50 tons for private use, says it is of the very
finest quality for household purposes.
