PRINCETON, FEB. 14, 1903.
CAMP McKINNEY.
Cariboo Produced 8400 Ounces of Gold in J 902.
Work at Camp McKinney during 1902,
was restricted chiefly to the Cariboo-Mc-
Kinney Mining & Milling Company's
Cariboo mine which has maintained the
creditable record of the several previous
years. The following statistics for the
year   ended   November 30, 1902, are   of-
Ore crushed, 15,616 tons ; bullion produced, 8,400 ounces ; concentrates produced, 550 tons ; value of bullion, $112,-
300; value of concentrates, $17,381 ;
drifting done, 1,005 feet; raising done,
190 feet; average number of men employed, 50; dividend paid, 4 per cent.
The tonnage of ore mined and milled
the previous year, as shown in the company's last annual report, was 16,862
tons, yielding 9,439 ounces of gold and
428 tons of concentrates.
MINING ASSOCIATION.
Meetings were held last week at Hedley and Nicola Lake for the purpose of organizing branches of the Provincial Mining Association. At the latter place Messrs
A. E. Howse and J. E. Bate were selected
as delegates to attend the convention at
Victoria on the 25th inst., and it is understood the Hedley branch will shortly
appoint a delegate for the same purpose.
The Princeton people took so little interest in the matter that only a corporals
guard turned out to the meeting called
for the evening of the nth. inst. and no
business was transacted,
The feeling among business men here
seems to be that the benefits to be derived from such an association are not
sufficient to repay the expense that
would of necessity be incurred. The
plan to Crown grant placer claims meets
with little favor in this section and the
two per cent, tax is not regarded as a
very heavy burden on the mining industry, except perhaps in the case of the
very low grade mines.

RAILWAY  NEWS.
Great Northern and C. P. R.
Make Agreement.
According to Seattle dispatches published by a number of coast papers, the
ending of the fight between the Canadian
Pacific and the Great Nprthern, which is
now announced, assures many miles of
railway construction, both in this province and the State of Washington, and
will remove an obstacle to the building
of the line from Midway to Vancouver.
This is the main object of the Great Northern, and it will now push its line westward from Midway, passing through the
Similkameen and crossing the Fraser
River on the new bridge which is now
being constructed, and thus give Vancouver the competitive line long, wished,
for.
By the terms of an agreement announced in Seattle, these railways waive their
rights to individual territory heretofore
respected, so far as it was impossible for
one to invade that of the other, and in
the settlement the Canadian Pacific is to
enter the wheat fields of Washington, to
secure a share of the increasing tonnage,
and the Great Northern is to webtrack
the Canadian Pacific's territory in British
Columbia from whatever point it may
wish and to where it can secure a franJ
chise, without the latter's interference.^
WILL SPEND A MILLION.
R. M. Marpole, general superintendent
of the Pacific division of the C. P. R. announced recently on returning from a
visit to Montreal that the company was
preparing to spend a million dollars during 1903 in this Province in making improvements of various kinds.
Mr. Marpole could say nothing definite
regarding the extension of the Columbia
& Western from Midway into the Similkameen during the present year, but
stated that he personally favored the
Spence's Bridge route as being the
cheapest and most practicable.
MAIL SERVICE.
It appears that at last the Dominion
government has been aroused to the necessity of a mail service between this
place and Penticton, and is making arrangements for providing one in a very
sho£t_timep
The action of the authorities in this
matter will be much appreciated, especially by the Hedley people who have so
far been without mail facilities of any
kind. -/-
DISCOVERED AT LAST
Candidate Willing to Represent
Government in West Yale.
Dr. George Sanson, of Ashcroft, is out
as the government candidate for West
Yale. His address to the electors will be
found on another page of this issue of the
Star, and he is preparing to visit this
portion of the constituency at an early
date.
Owing to the difficulty the government
has had in inducing anyone to represent
its unpopular cause, it appeared for a
time as though ex-Premier Semlin would
be returned by acclamation. It will suit
the electors better to have a contest, as it
will give an opportunity for the discussion of public affairs that cannot fail to be
beneficial, while at the same time it will
make little difference in the ultimate result—the opposition candidate being certain to go in by a handsome majority.
Dr. Sanson has little to be proud of in
becoming the government nominee, the
honor having been cheapened by being
peddled up and down the Nicola Valley
for several weeks before the Ashcroft aspirant was discovered.
HEDLEY PEOPLE  INDIGNANT.
' A visitor from Hedley says the residents of that place are indignant over the
action of Returning Officer Rowlands in
refusing to make it a polling place in the
approaching " buy " election.
The impression prevails there that the
action of the returning officer was dictated by the government to which he owed
his appointment, and which hopes to gain
by disfranchising the people of that town.
Such contemptible tactics merit the
disapproval of all right thinking people.
BURRARD ELECTION.
Word has been received from Nicola
that the latest reports concerning the
Burrard election held on the 4th inst.
give Macpherson, the Liberal candidate,
a majority of 88 over Chris. Foley, the
Labor man. Atlin is yet to hear from,
but is expected to increase Macpherson's
majority. No particulars were received
regarding the number of votes polled by
ex-Lieut.-Gov. Mclnnes the independent
Liberal.
Invitations have been issued for the
ball at Hedley on the 20th inst., and all
preparations are being made to give visitors an enjoyable time. Quite a number
of Princeton people have signified their
intention of attending.
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
Brief News Notes of Princeton
and   Vicinity.
John H. Smith, of Sterling Creek, was
a visitor to town Monday.
W. S. Wilson was up from Hedley on \
Wednesday last. He has been engaged }
for some time on the contract for L. W, ;
Shatford's store at that place and reports !
having lately completed it.
Mrs.  Coulthard  mother of Mr. J. H. '
Coulthard, of Keremeos,  died very suddenly at her home there last week.
Dr F. Rolls, of Rossland, came in last
Saturday on the stage and left early in
the week for Hedley City where he intends residing in the future. He has let
a contract to W. S. Wilson for the erection of a drug store and office on a couple
of lots purchased some time since.
D. W. Young received on Saturday the
d news of the death of his mother in
Minnesota.
W. H. Wheeler met with a painful accident last Thursday while freighting on
the road between here and Cook's sawmill on One-Mile creek. He was breaking the road in front of his horses and
had the misfortune to have one of them
srep on him above the ankle bruising
him severely and making the attention
of the doctor necessary. He is now
covering nicely and will be able to take
the road again in a few days.
Lowery's Claim," a New Denver
publication, famous throughout the
length and breadth of B. C. has been denied the use of the mails by the postal
authorities at Ottawa. Surh ultra Puritanism emanates from men with narrow
foreheads who are so prudish that the
bare legs of a table would shock them.
The Slate Creek platinum claim in the
Similkameen country, owned by Mr
Blair of Vancouver, J. M. Bowhead of
London, and a number of Similkameen

. SUBSCRIPTION RATES
It is impossible to escape the conclusion that the Premier is subservient to the railway corporations,
and that his success in this constituency will mean Southern B. C. for
the C. P. R., Central B. C. for Mc-
Kenzie & Mann, and Northern B.
C. for the Grand Trunk.
As for British Columbians, they
can get off the face of the earth.
They certainly deserve no better
fate if they are so blind to their own
interests as to support the present
makeshift government.

THE PREMIER'S ADDRESS.
Voters in this riding received last
mail a seven page pamphlet,
dressed to the electors of West Yale,
giving the views of Premier Prior
.on the legislation his • government
considers necessary for the well being of the Province, and which it
will endeavor to enact if sustained
by the electors,
The Premier thinks the county
does not want a general election,
but a period of peace and prosperity under his beuificent (?) guidance.
He tells us that the postponement of the West Yale election
through the mysterious disappearance of the writ was no fault of hi?,
but strangely enough he fails to inform us whose fault it was. As the
government could be the only possible gainer by the delay, the conclusion is obvious—denials to the
contrary notwithstanding.
After dodging the writ affair, the
Premier gets along fairly well until
he strikes the question of subsid es
to railways. He seems to feel that
he is on treacherous ground here,
andT)rings out an array of aged and
< ecrepit arguments in. support of
] is case that are a reflection on the
intelligence of the electors
There is no doubt the Premier
sees plainly that the. vast majority
of the people are strongly opposed
to the subsidy system. Why then
does he continue to advocate it ?
Is it not poor policy on his part
to favor the giving of the public domain to bonus seekers when the
voters are against it, and he is dependent for the existence of his
government on the support of the
electorate ?   j

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
To the Electors ot the
west vole Electoral District.
Gentlemen:—
In. response to the solicitation
of a large number of electors in all
parts of this District, I beg to announce myself a candidate in the
pending bye-election.
I shall take an early opportunity
of meeting you and laying before
you fully my views upon the different public questions at issue in
Provincial politics. In the meantime, as an indication of my position, I may briefly state that I
recognize the prime importance of
having greater railway facilities in
this Province, and will, accordingly, do all in my power to assist in
the immediate construction of railways. The assistance, however,
that is given by the Province must
be in such form as not to increase
taxation, while it must be accompanied by such conditions as will
make the railway, when built and
operated, a real benefit to the
country ; in other words, the Government must retain sufficient control of the railway and property of
the Railway Company as to prevent any more of sucb railway
monopolies as we now, unfortunately, suffer from.
As regards our great mining industry, I consider the Government
can do much to restore confidence
in the investing public, and to that
end will insist upon the Government repealing the two per cent,
mining tax and issuing Crown
grants for hydraulic properties.
The question of immigration is also most important and should receive careful attention. While
tens of thousands of people are
pouring into the North-West. Territories it is a reflection upon conditions in this Province that our
immigration is so small. This is
especially so when we consider the
enormous wealth of our Province
and the natural inducements of
climate, soil, timber and mines. I
am thoroughly in accord with the
proposition which has been suggested by Premier Prior: to have a
thorough exploratory survey made
of the Province, so that we will be
in a position to accord intending
settlers the fullest information as to
where they can best locate. While
immigration, however, should thus
be encouraged, it is also most desirable that due attention be paid
to the class of immigrants. More
particularly is it imperative that
Asiatics should be prohibited from
our country. I shall use every ef- j
fort to prevent the immigration and j
limit the employment of this class.
The appropriations accorded this
large and important District in
past years, for roads, bridges and
public buildings, have not been
adequate to the needs of the District,
and I intend to urge that the present necessities of the District in
these matters be attended to at
once.
In conclusion, I may say that I
consider the above objects can be
most promptly and surely attained
at the hands of the present Government, and accordingly I intend
to support it as far as is consistent
with complete loyalty to  the above
Soliciting  your  support  and influence,   and   hoping  to   bave the
pleasure of seeing you individual^
before election day.
Believe me,
Yours faithfully,
GEORGE SANSON,
Ashcroft, B. C,

WITHOUT A SUBSIDY.
Grand Trunk Pacific Will Build in
Any Event.
The announcement is made in
railroad circles, that the Grand
Trunk Pacific, as the new company
known which will construct another road across Canada, will ask
the government for a cash and land
subsidy, but intends to build the
road whether it gets either or
neither.    This is regarded as very
portant, and indicates the great
faith far-seeing men have in the
future of Canada.
