VANCOUVER BOARD OF TRADE.
Annual Report Neatly Printed and
Full of Interesting Hatter.
The sixteenth annual report of the
Vancouver board of trade is an artistic
work of the News-Advertiser presses.
The cuts, clear and sharp, give one an
idea of the big things in nature and commerce which this young, giant city of the
west has within its limits.
Vancouver is the western metropolis ofl
Canada, as such its great destiny is with,
out question. The Similkameen is the
right arm of this progressive city, but
there is no railway through which to
transfuse commercial life between the
two the limb is atrophied. An infl
tial body like the Vancouver board ofl
trade can, and no doubt will, use its best
efforts in resuscitating the muscular power of aforesaid limb and thus round out
the athletic body of the growing city it
represents.
The report is full of interesting matter
from cover to cover and should be read
by every business man in the country,
The Organ Fund.
In accordance with a paragraph in last
week's Star it may now be stated that
$28 has been subscribed towards th<
organ fund. Of this sum $20 has been
paid to Mr. Mason for the organ. With
the balance, along with a few more dollars promised, lamps, &c, are to be
bought. It may be again stated that the
organ will remain undenominational
property, and as it is to be placed at the
teacher's disposal for school purposes,
the school trustees will, at their first
meeting, be asked to take charge of it.
It is pleasant to know that so widespread
an interest has been taken in the matter,
and that the fund has been so heartily
subscribed to.
Another Testimonial.
A letter received by F R. Whitwell
from W. B. Willoughby, mine broker of
Portland, Or., states that he will be here
again shortly and that during his b iefl
visit a month ago he saw enough ore to
convince him that Princeton is destined
to be a great mining camp. The samples
of ore from here which he exhibited to
prominent mining men at Portland
elicited much favorable comment. The
coal and metal being virtually alongside
each other in this mining camp leads Mr.
Willoughby to believe it will be the
cheapest mine operated and smelter camp
in the world.
A General Banking Business
A general banking business transacted
by the Bank of Hamilton. Capital
$2,000,000. Reserve Fund $1,700,000.
Interest allowed on Savings Bank deposits of one dollar and upwards from
date of deposit to date of withdrawal.

One of the Most Important Coal Discoveries in the
Whole Western Section of British Columbia—Exposed Seam 4 ft* Thick
Traced Seven Miles*
Mention was made in last week's Star of the great coal field recently dis-
rered in the Coldwater basin, within four miles of Nicola Lake. Of the
of coal there no one familiar with .the country had any doubt. But it
was only a week or two ago that the actual discovery of a high class bitumi'
nous coal was made. By referring to the second page of this paper there will be
found proof of the fact that there is coal, according to locations made and mo
follow, in abundance. The coal is described as a clean, coherent coking
very similar to that found in other parts of Nicola district.
As fast as development and exploration can be made there will, no doubt,
be a corresponding increase in the coal area. Prospectors are looking over
some new adjoining territory and there is uo doubt of further strikes being mad<
The Nicola district, in which are the Coldwater measures, and the vast Similkameen coal and metalliferous mining region, are contiguous. They contain 1
in variety and quantity of mineral than can be shown on any part of the globe; yet
for want of railway transportation it remains untouched. Capital was ready to
build the road but the non-capitalized politician burked the project and the c
try remains, practically, in the same condition it was prior to man's advent.
A Holiday Trip.
Miss Whillans, the popular teacher of
the Princeton public school, returned on
Wednesday last from a visit to relatives
near Beaver lake, Alberta, some forty
miles south-east of Edmonton. Since
leaving here for her holidays Miss Whillans has travelled some three hundred
miles by stage route, half that distance
by lake steamer and almost a thousand
miles by rail. Truly, this is a country
of magnificent distances.
The whole journey was one of exceptional interest and variety. The rapid
changes from grand perspective to beautiful vista, from majestic mountain to
lovely valley, were as seen through a
kaleidoscope. Perhaps the most interesting part of the journey, the young
lady believes, was through the opulent
Okanagan. There orchard, meadow
and field of glinting grain, the thrifty
homes and smiling countenances of the
people betokened a soil of great fertility
■a "land of Canaan."
The throng of settlers going into the
Northwest was never equalled. The
overflow of settlers beyond the outstretching railroads is often forty and fifty miles.
The hotels are overcrowded and a great
t of business prosperity is now
sweeping over the country. The crops
nost bountiful and the mosquitoes
most certainly plentiful, evidences of
which Miss Whillans brought back and
therefore, very glad to be in picturesque Princeton once again.
"It Looks Good to Me."
Peter Swanson and Chas. Hansen,
iners of Nelson, were in town Tuesday,
and became subscribers to the STAR.
They arrived from Aspen Grove, where
they had been doing assessment work for
the past five weeks. On one claim they
sunk a shaft 20 feet. One of their cli
adjoins the celebrated Portland mine
another the Red Bird. They had with
them some very peculiar rock which resembled granite subject to vulcanic influence. However, Peter says: "It looks
good to me " and he will have it assayed
at once confident that it contains good
values. Both are enthusiastic over theii
properties and believe Aspen Grove to be
one of the most promising camps they
have seen.
Sulphide of Silver Strike.
Charlie Connell arrived from Summit
creek, about thirty miles up the Tula
meen, on Tuesday last. He had beei
doing assessment work on his claim
there and in doing so he struck a 5-foot
lead of sulphide of silver ore which with
gold values will average $80 per ton. An
open cut of 12 feet is in ore that distance.
The Empress on which the strike was
made is now ready to ship ore. On the
Celtic Chief a tunnel is in 20 feet and a
breast of high grade ore has been struck.
Mr. Connell has no doubt whatever as to
the future of Summit creek, and says:
All I ask is a railroad, the ore speaks
for itself."
CONSERVATIVE    CONVENTION.
Fairview  Convention   Characterized
by Unity, Amity and Comity.
The Conservatives of the Similkameen
riding met in convention at Fairview on
August 15. There was a large number of
delegates in attendance from all parts of
the riding.
Mr. Coulthard was elected chairman
and after stating the object of the meeting and reviewing the political situation,
called for nominations. Thos. H. Murphy of Granite creek in a forceful speech
nominated L. W. Shatford of Fairview
as the standard-bearer of the Liberal-
Conservative party, the nomination being
seconded by Frank Richter of Keremeos.
Mr. Murphy announced to the convention receipt of a letter from H- Nicholson of Camp McKinney withdrawing his
name as a candidate and expressing hearty
endorsation of the Conservative platform
and best wishes for the candidature of
Mr. Shatford.
There being no other nomination that
of Mr. Shatford was put to the convention and"carried unanimously.
Mr. Shatford addressed the meeting in
a rousing speech and was glad to know
the present contest was on party lines,
which he believed would give more
stable government. The Conservative
platform was a businesslike one and as
such it would commend itself to the people of this province. He would give his
best effort to furthering transportation
and carrying out the pledge of the Conservative party to the people of the province. His business interests would have
to be sacrificed in entering the political
arena but he wonld enter the contest with
the determination to carry the riding of
Similkameen by all honorable means for
McBride aud good government.
Mr. Murphy further discussed the
transportation question and urged all to
work hand in hand for the election of
Mr. Shatford.
Mr. McDougall, delegate for Olalla,
assured the meeting of a walkover for
the Conservative candidate there and the
delegates from Granite Creek, Princeton,
Tulameen, Anarchist Mountain, Camp
McKinney and Kettle river reported sim-
The convention adjourned after passing the following resolution : That we
endorse the present premier of the pro-
e, Mr. McBride, and the- platform of
the Conservative party.

POLLUTED POLITICS.
Political scandals are so common
throughout the whole civilized
world in these piping days of bitter
controversy and party animus that
a thoughtful person often wonders
what the end will be. Intrigue
and corruption have so polluted the
very atmosphere of most legislative
halls that an honest man will not
enter there through fear of contamination. The spirit of unholy
rivalry and fierce jealousy between
opposing political parties is often
outdone in impetuous hatred and
gross abuse of each other by members of one party.
Today all the machinery for political deviltry is working overtime
and at high pressure. From the
time of the primary meetings for
the election of delegates to the
conventions proper and on to the
day of election the machine is advocating private, personal and ultra
partisan considerations which have
the effect of thwarting the purpose
of choosing the most popular and
capable man as the representative
of the party in the election. There
are few conventions in which this
is not painfully evident. And when
the rift is made within the party
then all the vituperation, rancor
and villification forces its way in
torrential tide upon the people and
they turn in sickening disgust from
the party and its cause.
Men having the true welfare of
the country and party at heart will
never obtrude themselves and their
selfish aims to the ejetent of causing
disruption of the party. Personal
pique denotes a small mind in any
sphere of life and those who yield
to it should never aspire to anything
higher than that of poundkeeper in
the public service. When strife
and jealousy prompt men to do that
which is contrary to the dictates of
conscience and reason wisdom flees
and chaos reigns.
Better do away with conventions
altogether if they only serve to disintegrate and resort to the old style
of bunching the candidates in a fair
field with no favor and let them
run as they please. For if the political game is to be played with any
honor or deceny it must in its rudimentary stages be   free from any
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Wisely or not, the Star has refrained from any participation in
the internecive strife now going on
over the result of the Liberal convention a month ago. Indeed, the
Star had no  hand in its genesis
id therefore had little or no reason
to become embroiled. In all humility and with all deference to the
disputants the suggestion is made
that they meet together and talk
the matter over, selecting the president of the provincial Liberal association or any other competent
person as arbiter, and cease quarrelling like a lot of Kilkenny cats.
aspersion of crookedness. The
candidate who secures nomination
by political magic or jealous alii
ances will carry the taint all through
his political life. He will not bring
to his party that vitality and support which spring from pure motives
but will ever be grafting for himself and friends. Laying the foundation of government by party
free from all impurity, be it at convention or caucus, must have a
wholesome influence on those who
are immediately concerned, upon
the citizens and the government.
Few people are aware of the
extent of agricultural land in the
vicinity of Princeton. There is a
lot of bench land with rich and productive soil which only lacks irrigation. As the method of irrigation
by electric force becomes cheaper
these lands could all be utilized for
agricultural purposes. Already
irrigation by electricity is being
carried on in B.C. Here the two
rs, Similkameen and Tulameen
afford unlimited water power.

Jas. Haddock of Ashcroft was in town
last Saturday buying hides and skins.
He is one of the largest exporters in the
province and has the reputation of paying the highest prices.
Clouds of pretty blackbirds swooped into
town early the other morn and went helping themselves to anything they required.
In the great economy of nature no doubt
a visitation of these feathered innocents
is more a blessing than otherwise for they
often rid the country of grievous pests.
W. C. Lyall, Princeton manager of the
A. E. Howse Co.,  went to   Hedley
business on Monday last.
F. W. Groves, P L.S., left for Bear
creek and Summit camps on Monday last
to survey for D. Ross. He will be away
about ten days.
John Dalby was in town this week
and went to Hedley on Monday.
Chas. Richter and N. Huston went
Vancouver via Hope trail and Chilliwack
on Monday last. They had a band of
forty spanking horses, all in good condition and will, no doubt, get top notch
prices for them.
G. M. Watt, of Victoria, B.C., came
over the trail on a biice and went

If anyone doubts the adaptability of
the soil and climate here for hop growing let him turn his eyes on the splendid
arbors that en wreath the fronts of dwellings about the town. The vines are literally loaded with hops—no irrigation
being necessary. The immense possibilities of the Similkameen in fruit, vine
and vegetable are but faintly appreciated
and scarcely yet discovered.
Robert Stevenson went to Keremeos
on Tuesday last, returning Friday.
Ronald Hewat, of the Jackson hotel,
who has been a sufferer from an attack of
sciatica for the past fortnight has fully

BEAUTIFUL HOME BY AND BY.
The Sun: Is It Heaven ?   May Not
Science Prove It Eternal Abode ?
In view of the fact that science is ever
getting nearer the source of life and as
the sun is generally believed to be the
great generator of all life it may be es-1
tablished by the aid of science to be the
home of that great Eternal Life from
which no human being has escaped a
longing for at times. The following is
from the pen of G. W. Warder in the
Booklover's Magazine:
" What is the physical geography of
the sun? Has it mountains lakes and
rivers? Has it trees and shrubs and
flowers ? Has it variegated landscapes of I
hill, copse and valley ? Has it bending
heavens of luminous light and rainbow
tints of gorgeous beauty ? Has it peerless cities of smiling grandeur, inhabited
ty a noble people of angelic goodness,
with all the graces and fascinations of
human personalities, with loving hearts,
pure lives and joyous, aspiring souls ? I
believe it has all of these, and more than
I could paint with all the glowing sweep
of fancy or the gorgeous flowers of rhetoric. It is like our earth, only more
beautiful, more glorious, more divine.
I contend, therefore, that the sun is
inhabited. There are no waste places in
the universe, and nature is ever economic
of space and power. Great and brilliant
worlds were   never   made simply t
burned up for the benefit of a few little,
insignificant worlds like ours.
The planets are human hatcheries, and
the suns the places of their maturity and
perfection. The worlds are God's human
and the suns His perennial or
chards of eternal life and fruition. I believe that souls are born in this world,
that this is their first theatre of action,!
and where they take on the habiliments
of earth-dust and star-dust, for all things
'riginally came  from the sun and will
finally return to the sun.   The seed that
planted here will ripen in the brighter
:alms of the sun. In other words the
earth and planets are the birthplaces of
human souls. They have their origin in
the divine miracle of earth life ; they are
the product of planetary forces. Man's
body is the visible manifestation of invisible atoms and forces, woven around an
invisible, spiritual body. And when the
visible manifestations drop away into
their invisible elements, the soul asserts
its eternal energy and soars away to the
eternal sources of all light and life."
Sir William Crookes, F.R.S., the em
nent scientist, is experimenting with
view to showing the relation between
psychical and physical waves. Marconi
has demonstrated the presence of etheric

12 Sound Planks Upon Which Liberals Will Bally for Victory.
The Liberal platform, as adopted at
Provincial  Liberal   Convention  held  at
Vancouver, is as follows:
immediate redistribution of the
constituencies of the province on the
basis of population, but allowinga smaller
unit of population per seat for the outlying districts.
2. Government ownership, Dominion,
provincial and municipal, of public services of utilities is sound and should be
carried out in British Columbia.
3. Should it be advisable at
to grant aid to a railway company such
shall be in cash and not in land and nc
bonus of any kind shall be given without definite and effective means being
taken to safeguard the interests of the
province in the management of the road,
control of the freight and passenger rates
and provision made against such railway
having any liability against it except for
actual cost.
4. Immediate construction of the Coast-
Kootenay railway, the Cariboo railway,
the extension of the island railway, a
tailway from Alberni to a point on the
east coast of the island, a road in the
northern part of the province from the
coast to the eastern boundary with an
extension to the northern boundary, the
railway from Vernon to Midway by north
fork of Kettle river, with necessary
brianch lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcement of the act now in
force compelling the scaling of logs by
government scalers.
6. That such legislation should be
enacted as will result in making the
lands included   in   the   various dyking
eas available for cultivation as quickly
possible and secure prompt payments
assessments when due.
7. That the government should keep
touch with the conditions in conn<
on with mining, protecting said indi
try against combines and trusts and if
necessary for the purpose build and operate smelters and refineries. No reasonable change should be made in the mining laws without full notice to all parties
interested, giving full opportunity for
discussion and criticism.
8. As the province can only adi
by the   settlement within its borders of
thrifty and   prosperous  citizens,
Orientals never  become citizens in any
proper sense of the word, we declare it
to be the duty of the government to di
courage Oriental immigration and ei
ployment by   every   means   within   its
power, and we appeal to our fellow Liberals throughout the Dominion to aid
in our efforts to protect ourselves against
the ruinous competition of men having -
standard   of   decency   and comfort ire
mensely below that of civilized peoph
and  who   shirk   every duty and oblig£
tion   of citizenship   which the law will,
allow them to escape.
9. The government ought to prevent
the waste and suffering caused by strikes
and lockouts, and an earnest effort ought
to be made to provide some means of
preventing such strikes and lockouts, and
we approve the adoption of compulsory
arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the prov
is in need of revision. Taxation should
bear upon privilege rather than upon industry, and no addition should be made
to the debt of the province except for
public works properly chargeable to capi-
