LOCAL AND PERSONAL
Brief News Notes of Princeton
and   Vicinity.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Johnson of Hedley
City, drove up from that place on Tuesday last.
Hans Richter and Wm. Lowe of Keremeos, spent   the    week, in the    vicinity
.  of Princeton collecting  cattle from the
'.  ranges.   The early snow will compel the
cattlemen   to begin   feeding this season
earlier than usual.
J. M. Hitchings, W. Knigh', and F.
Wampole, who have been hunting on
Wolf Creek for a few days, report having
killed five deer.
Messrs. Lockyer and Findlay of the
Hudson's Bay Co., left Monday morning
on the Nicola stage on their way to Van-
Owing to the heavy fall of snow last
week the stage-from Nicola was about 30
hours late. The delay was caused by the
driver returning for sleighs after finding
the road impassable to wheels. Such a
heavy and early fall of snow has not
been   known   in this   district for   some
W. A. Davis of this place, familiarly
known as " Podunk," who is at present
in Vancouver, is said to have fallen heir
to several thousand dollars through the
death of his father. Two brothers and a
sister received  similar amounts.
The many friends of M. Cruickshanks
will be sorry to hear that he had a leg
broken recently by falling off a new
house on which he was working near
Chilliwack^. j
Mr. W. J. Lawrence" has rented the
Grand Union Hotel at Hedley City, and
* is moving down to occupy it.
C. P. Seale, who has been working for
some months for the Ashnola Coal Co.,
left on Sunday last for Sandon, where he
intends spending the winter.
The Ashnola Smelter Co. have made
their second payment on the Copper
Bluff and Copper Cliff claims on Copper
Mountain, which they purchased some
months ago from Messrs. Aldous, Jackson and Mills.
McRostie, the Fairv
rested for stealing registered mail from
the office there, is reported to have been
sentenced to,six years imprisonment.
A. E. Lewis of this place, has gone on
a short visit to Nicola and Kamloops.
W. I. Linton.representiag Kelly,Doug-
las & Co., wholesale grocers of Vancouver, came in last Sunday from Nicola on
the stage.
JAS.J.HILLEXPECTB
To Visit Boundary In Connection with Coast-Kootenay.
A letter received from Mr. Alex. F.
MacDonald, a prominent railway contractor of Grand Forks, contains the
news that President Jas. J. Hill of the
Great Northern Railway Co., is expected
to visit the Boundary shortly, for the
purpose of starting work on the Coast-
Kootenay. Mr. MacDonald says the action of the rai}way committee of the
privy council in allowing the V., V. & E.
to cross the Kettle Valley line, has made
a decided change in the outlook, and
that Grand Forks people feel sure the
road will begin building west this fall.
A SAD JOURNEY.
Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong, who   live on
the Similkameen River-18 miles below
Fai^5ew, drove up from their home to
Princeton on Wednesday, a distance of
63 miles, on their way to Nicola Lake,
where they go in response to a telegram
conveying the sad intelligence that their
son, Mr. Jos. Armstrong, was seriously
ill and not expected to live. They left
here Thursday morning with the intention of going through to Nicola that day,
a distance of 72. miles.
Mr. Jos. Armstrong is a partner with
Bate Bros, of Aspen Grove camp, who recently made some large deals with Amerr
ican capitalists.
It is to be hoped that his illness will
not prove so serious a* anticipated, and
that he may live long to enjoy the good
fortune which he has worked so hard for
the past three years.
W. F. Revely and T. J. Swansbrough,
were up from Hedley City for a day t>r
two this week.
J. F. Dickson and McLean left yesterday for Hedley City, where they have a
contract for hauling ties for the tramway.
The Chief of Police of Calgary, N. W.
T., came in from Nicola on ttie stage last
Sunday and returned Monday morning.
The obiect of his visit is not generally
known.
(■ Mr. Chas. Richter is building a butch-
!er shop at Hedley City.
Messrs. Willarson and Johnson returned Sunday from Aspen Grove camp,
where they have been doing assessment
work on three claims situated near the
Georgia group, belonging to Messrs. A.
E. Howse, F. A. Howse and G. R. Philp.
I C. Clay shot two fine bucks this week
near his ranch on Wolf Creek.
GUIDES   RETURN
Who Accompanied A. E. Baldwin Across Hope Mountains.
Messrs. Gibson and Lee, the guides
who accompanied A. E. Baldwin, the
Great Northernenpneer into the Hope
Mountains in search of a suitable railway
pass, returned on Tuesday last over the
Hope trail from the Fraser Valley.
The party left here on the 7th of Oct.,
and spent nearly a month exploring different pasees near the International
Boundary line.
It is impossible as yet to learn the result of Mr. Baldwin's observations, but
from descriptions of the country traversed it would seem highly probable that
his report will be of a favorable character, regarding the. feasibility of getting
through to the Fraser by crossing from
the Skagit to the Chilliwack River.
One of the guides reports having passed through some very-fine cedar areas in
the valley of th£_Skagtt, and also some
likely looking country for prospectors to
The return trip was accomplished with
considerable difficulty on account of the
heavy snow fall on the summit of the
Hope range. Drifts between six and
eight feet deep were passed through.

GRANITE CREEK FIRE
Home   of   Mr. F. P.   Cook
Partially Destroyed.
A fire occurred at Granite Creek last
Tuesday that threatened for a time to
reach serious proportions. It began in
the kitchen of Mr. F. P. Cook's   residen-
made rapid headway, until it occurred to
some one to tear thejoof of the kitchen
off. Wheirfhis was done the temporary
fire brigade were able to overcome the
flames, but not before everything of value in that portion of the house had been
almost totally destroyed.
DOWNFALL  OF MONOPOLY.
The Boundary Creek Time's, speaking
of the action of the railway committee in
allowing the V., V. & E. to cross the
Kettle Valley line says :
" The victory of the Great Northern
Railway means the downfall sooner or* j
later of the rponopoly of hauling ore to .
Boundary smelters, hitherto enjoyed by
the C. P. R."~~An idea of the magnitude
of thistraffic, including the transportation of coke, matte, etc., may be gained
from the fact that-the contribution of the
Granby company to the C. P. R. is now
at the rate of f 600^000 per annum.
"'Jim Hill's proposed invasion of the
Boundary mining camps will tend to
stimulate mining operations, and will
ultimately result in a sweeping reduction in the transportation charges as regards both ore and coke.
" The surveys for the various spurs and
extensions in this district were complet:
ed six months ago.
" There are no longer any obstacles in
the way of the Great Northern -b'uilfdijig? I
its proposed line from the boundary to
Vancouver, B. C, traversing the Similkameen district, where coal, gold and copper abound. Locating engineers are
now at work in the Similkameen."
J. V. Lee left Friday morning for Gar-
trell, on Okanagan Lake, to work for the
Ashnola Smelter Co.
Messrs. Willarson and Johnson have
purchased a lot behind the townsite of-
fice, on which they are building a house.
Mr. T. C. Revely is busy these days assisting " the government " in getting out
the assessment notices.
A party of hunters are leaving Hedley I
in a   few days  to hunt   bighorn   in the
Ashnola mountains.
Three freight teams, bringing goods
from Nicola 'for A. E. Howse, reached
here yesterday morning.

ROYAL COMMISSION.
The Royal Commission appointed to inquire into the causes of accidents in British Columbia coal
mines has arrived at some important conclusions. In the following
excerpt from an editorial in the
Vancouver World, it will be noticed that the Commission realized
the great danger from coal dust in
a dry mine ja danger that was
poTnted out very strongly by Alexander Sharp, M. E., in an interview given the Star last June :
" This province has just been
the scene of the work of a Royal
Commission appointed to enquire
into the workings of the colleries,
and to find out how far the conditions which obtain are met by the
provisions of the Coal Mines Regulation Act. It cost over three hundred miners in the provincial mines
their lives before this commission
was appointed, but it hoped that as
a result .of the evidence given,
changes will be made in the statutes which will make less hazardous the calling of the coal miner.
If this is accomplished the victims
will not have died in vain, though,
as the Fernie Free Press says : 'The
price they were called upon to pay
to ensure the safety of their fellows
was a terrible one.'
" One of the most important
questions settled by the enquiry is
that coal dust is of a highly explosive nature, and therefore dry and
dusty mines must be well watered.
There have been experts to declare
that coal dust was not explosive ;
this commission has declared otherwise.
" From the evidence given by
Mr.   Ralph   Smith, M. P., himself
for many years a working coal miner, it would appear that the employ-
mentof_ibreigne»wvho have nc
knowledge of the English language
is Ifpositive danger! StartMng^vas
his comparison of the death rolls in
Great Britain and in British Columbia. He showed that during
the ten years from 1892 to 1901,
the death roll in Great Britain
showed .55 per cent, as due to col-
y explosions, while in British
Columbia it was 6.61. Mr. Smith
placed the blame on the inexperienced men who are allowed to work
in the coal mines of this province.
In Britain, said he, coal mining is
a trade ; here hundreds of men are
taken into a mine who have absolutely no knowledge of the work.
Witnesses also favored the supplying of miners with an instrument
which would detect 1.5 per cent.

V., V. & E. CROSSING.
The people of the Boundary
rejoicing greatly over the decision
of the railway committee of the
privy council, by which the V., V.
& E. is allovged to cross the Kettle
ValleKjjne. It will mean the building of a four mile spur into the Granby smelter as well as an extension
of the main line to Phoenix, Greenwood and Midway. The Rossland
Miner says : " Grand Forks is to
be congratulated. The congratulation, in fact, should be extended
to the whole Boundary country.
The Hill road will undoubtedly be
extended to Greenwood and Phoenix in the spring. We may also
expect him to build to the Coast,
passing through the Similkameen
country, opening up one of the
richest sections of the province,
that is now practically bottled up.
Mr. Hill will have the road constructed before the bonus-hunters
get through looking for land
grants."
A prominent mine owner of this
district who recently interviewed
President Hill of the Great North-
, states that he was greatly surprised at the intimate knowledge
Hill had of the resources of this
section. This accounts for his anxiety to build the Coast-Kootenay.
Had Sir Thomas Shaughnessy tak-
he same pains to inform himself j
regarding this district, the C. P. R.
would have had a road built from
Midway to the Coast two years ago

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
Justice Mixed With Humor.
^SSj^W* I" small town in the United
States lives an elderly German,
who, because of the high esteem in
f *' which he is held in the community,
has   been   elected   justice   of   the
peace.    The old gentleman was re-
<V     " cently called upon to decide a most
perplexing question.
One of his neighbors is the possessor of a dog. The dog, although
not actually vicious, delights iu
running out of the gate and barking savagely at passers by. This had
been the source of great annoyance
to the neighbors, especially to one,
who vowed he would get even
with " the pesky critter." Recently this neighbor was returning from
a shooting trip, gun in hand. j He
was set upon by the dog, whereupon he raised his weapon and fired
at the brute. His aim was not
very good, and the dog ran yelping,
minus his caudal appendage.
The owner of the dog had his
neighbor haled before the old just-
jjJ&aP ice on a charge of cruelty to animals, and the court-room was
- crowded with the partizans of Doth
men. The justice heard the charge,
and then the defence that the dog
was a dangerous animal and a menace to the neighborhood. Tie old
German then cleared his throat and
delivered the dictum .
" Der man—he has been guilty
of gruelty to animals." And one
side of the court-room applauded
the justice of the decision.
'' But der tog—he was a vicious
tog." And the other side voiced
its approval. l£S$P|ip
" I will fine der man five tollars."
Another murmur in the court-room.
" But I will gif him anodder shot
at der tog." And both sides cheered.
Scottish Home Rulers.
At a meeting in Glasgow recent
ly, Mr. Robert Blatchford presiding, Mr. R. B. Graham spoke of
the need of a new political party,
distinct from the two old parties.
What could they expect from members of parties that had been doing
nothing but supplant one another
for the last 150 years without ever
placing to.the credit side more than
20 laws which were a credit to the
nation or an advantage to the population ? In Scotland they must
have a national parliament and a
Scottish house of commons to raise
the fallen and endeavor to banish
poverty, as might be done by wise
rulers and careful legislation. One
of the causes of the present unsatisfactory condition of society was the
universal snobbism that prevailed
over the whole Anglo-Saxon   race.
A Big Difference.
A few years ago the mines around
Rossland could not afford to ship
ore valued at less than $16 per ton..
The chargesr16r Ireightand smelter treatment amounted to $14. Later, these charges were decreased to
$11 per ton, and about a year ago
the smelters reduced the rate for
freight and smelting to $6.50 per
ton. A recent contract made by
the War Eagle and Centre Star
mines with the smelter enables
them to ship ore valued at $5 per
ton, although . they ship a quantity
of high-grade ore with the low
grade. The terms of the contract
between those mines and the smelter are $4.50 per ton for freight and
treatment. With the new Elmore
process there promises to be a great-
reduction
base ores.

New Smelting Process
Mr. D. D. Mann, of Mackenzie
& Mann, and the solicitor for the
firm, Mr. j. N. Greenshields, K.C.,
are coming to British Columbia,
for the purpose of making an important move in the firm's mining
interests in the west. They are
coming specially at the instigation
of a syndicate of Pittsburg capitalists, who are interested in a new j
process of smelting ores and the reduction of gold values from low
grade copper properties. Hon. W.
C. Wells, Commissioner of Lands
and Works may return with them.
It is proabble that certain railway
negotiations between the company
and the government will be opened j
during the western trip.-—Inland

It Couldn't Be Worse.
Mrs. Mellem is one of those inoffensive persons who are continually dreading that they may, by
sotne mischance, hurt the feelings
of others. Added to this, she has
had considerable trouble in getting
a suitable cook, and does not wish
to offend her.
"John," she said to the manservant, on the morning following
the party, " do you happen WkfflSW
whether—that is—I mean, can you
find out, without asking the cook,
whether the tinned salmon was all
eaten last night ? You see, I don't
wish to ask her because she may
have eaten it, and then she would

good soul.
"If you please, ma'am," replied
the man, " the new cook has eaten
the tinned salmon ; and if you was
to say anything to her you couldn't

she is."-
