GROWTH OF THE TOWN,
Activity in the Building Line
During the Presei
Month.
Princeton's growth—in the build:
line—has been considerably advanced
since the opening of the present month.
The notably fine weather, and the ~eason
able figures quoted by dealers in lumbei
have proved to b 5 two potent factors ir
the encouragement of this much desired
end. The permanency of any town
be recognized in the number of its ]
ate residences, and in this respect Pii
ton is the only town west of Greenwood,
that can truthfull" boas', of being a home
Beside th* business block being put up

Across the way at the Hotel Jackson, a
commodious frostproof root and storehouse has been completed. On Mr.
Jackson's lots fronting on Harold Street,
a deep well is being sunk. It is prop

water may always be had.
Mr. Barber's new building, when coi
pleted, will be one of the most  subsia
tial—for  its  size—1 usiness  premis--

AT ASHNOLA.
A ST49; Representative was out at the
City of Ashnola early in the
week. The Similkameen Valley Coal
Company is represented on the ground
by director H. H. Pitts. Under him is a
force of eight men. The company is
running a tunnel <o tap a coal seam immediately beneath   the   townsite.      T£e
of theSimilkamee,; .\ , • . ,s it,
15 feet. On the townsite proper, a -<.
is digging a ditch to drain the s
lake on the bench immediately above the
site. Mr. Pitts states that 150 lots hav
been laid out on the level bencn"."""3Hie
prices range from $175 to $225. The
cotnp'arry—h'as—done ~CxceiTe*nt^work in
widening and grading the roadjea.ding

RAILROAD NEWS.
The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern
Railway surveyors are/now heading west-
ward to Princetdb./ Some time befo.:a
Xmas, weather peWnitting, they will be
camped in town. As is well known, for
months past the Great Northern V Railway, the American connection of the V.,
V. & E., has had a force of engineers in
the field surveying westward from Midway. This survey has been completed as
far as the mouth of the Similkamee 1
river, wh.:- it em^ies into the Okanogan river, a few miles north of Oro. J.
H. Kennedy, engineer-in-chief, informed
a Star representative that tne grade between Midway and Princeton would be
kept down to a. one pejJcefl*i for .tae^ln-''
distance. To accom~/:sh this, a
longfci route has been found necessary,
route already laid out is as follows:,
n Midway to Sidley lake, via Rock
Creek and Bolster, with one loop 44 miles.
Westward across a high plateau ,,to the
Okanogan river, where a considerable
drop is necessary-before reaching the river at' Oro. This is overcome by swinging directly south for a distance of 75
miles, and looping back at a lower 2 it'-
tude, and gradually descending .to the
bank'of'the river "at ""Oro. "The* Okanogan is crossed a few miles north—ju^

THE METROPOLIS OF THE
SIMILKAMEEN.
Since Princeton was first plattec
as a townsite, it has been recognized as the future town of the Simil
kameen district. Its location is
central; its citizens are enterprising, and its businsss houses unequalled west of Greenwood. With
an immense tributary region, rich
in metals, coal measures, ranching,
farming, timber and fruit growing
lands, there can be no gainsaying
its wonderful future. Its position
was recognized by the government
in the erection of a County Court
building as the official headquarters
for the district. Its rapid growth
has so far placed it in the lead that
it has absolutely nothing to fear
from competitive neighbors. Every
new townsite that springs up in the
district, adds just so much more to
its commercial supremacy. With
the advent of a railroad it will become more than ever the supply
point for.the Similkameen. If ever
an opportunity presented itself for
investment here, surely now is the
time, before the genuine boom (for
Princeton has never had a boom)
strikes, it. The Star has preparer
a list ot possible business openings
for those willing to take their chances and grow up with the metropo
lis of the Similkameen.
First however, for the genera
benefit of the outside public, it is
tight to give a list of those already
represented here. A careful perusal of the same must convince anyone, that here in Princeton has been
founded the nucleus of a town, that
for its age and size cannot be equalled anywhere in the Province. This
is the list :—
■B 4 General mercantile stored
3 Hotels.
2 Butcher shops.
f    i Tin and gunsmith.   Y
4 Livery and feed stables,
i News stand,
i Barber shop,
3 Laundries.
i Lawyer. V^
i Doctor. i /\
i Mining engineer.
i Provincial land surveyor.
i Real estate office.
i Printing and newspaper office,
i Bakery..
i Blacksmith shop.
4 Contractors and builders.
4 Lumber dealers.
i Coal dealer.
i Wood yard.
i Assay office, and a
Government oifi.ee.
At present   the   following   businesses are unrepresented :—
^-.BaTTkT   -
Hardware.,S  s? ,
Tlrtio-o-ier f&f*
Druggist.
7"
jBrtwery.
—Jeweler and watchmaker..
Tailor.
Cigar and tobacconist.
Shoemaker.
Harness and saddlery.
__J£estattrSntT
■^TneSTAR only points out openings for the investment of capital in
mercantile pursuits. Space prohibits any mention of the possibilities for investment in the mines,
both metal and coal : in fruit growing and dairying; in lumber and
the manufacture of brick. Openings there are by the score. At
every point of the compass within
but a short radius of the town there
is land, and splendid land too, for.
the homesteader and settler. The
Similkameen   is  a virgin   country
'aiting capital, muscle and enterprise.
POSTAL SERVICE.
At last William Galliher, M. P.
for this constituency has been heard
from. On his return to Nelson
from Ottawa, he accorded the Miner an interview. On the subject of
postal facilities the paper says :—
' Mr. Galliher discussed with the
postal department the advisability
of sending the mail from Golden to
Windermere twice a week hereafter,
taking off the through mail from
Fort Steele to Golden. He also
urged putting on a stage carrying
mail between Krugers and Princeton, with post offices on the way at
Hedley and other places."
It is sincerely to be hoped that
the long promised Similkameen
Valley mail route will be put into
force at as early a date as possible.
BOARD OF TRADE.
The formation of a Board of
Trade, as outlined in last week's
Star should receive the careful attention of the business men of this
community. The amount of good
it can do in advertising Princeton
and its resources, would more than
repay the original cost necessary to
its formation.
