THE BOARD OF TRADE
REXOAL LICENSES
Important Communications and
Decision to Address Weekly Letters Abroad to
Capital Centers.
At the meeting of the board of trade
Tuesday evening a communication from
Acton, Ontario, asking for information
regarding Princeton, and letters from
Aulay Morrison, M.P. for New Westminster district, acknowledging receipt of
petition re Dominion railway subsidy and
promising to do what laid in his power
in its behalf; also a letter from John F.
Smith, secretary of the Kamloops board
of trade, imparting useful information as
to constitution of board bf trade and
proffering a copy of bylaws.
The presentation of the weekly letter
! setting out the advantages for the
vestment of money in the Similkameen
was made by the president, C. E. The
It was decided to publish these 1<
having the endorsement of the board
in the local and an importan
newspaper with the view of giving it the
widest publicity possible.
Some railway information was laid
before the board by the secretary and ir
the debate which ensued it was the hopefully expressed opinion of all that 1904
would see the culmination of all railway
difficulties in the Similkameen. It was
noted that the Vancouver board of trade
had taken up the railroad question and
had passed resolutions in co
with those already adopted by the
Princeton board. The generally conceived notion that special legislation was
now required to enable the V.V. & E.
people to build was shown to be erroneous inasmuch as the charter conveyed all
rights and privileges and that was now
in possession  of a certain railway mag-
The discussion arising from a suggestion to record an objection to the doubling in price of coal licenses brought out
a lot of unbiased comment from every
member present. With scarcely an exception the members are all interested in
coal. The opinion prevailed that no
impediment in the way of a high license
should be placed on the prospector, for
he was the medium through whom the
presence of coal was generally made
known and a large fee would deter effort
in discovery. It was mentioned that
surface rights to coal claims should carry
with them only the actual requirements
of operation, the land should be free to
settlers on usual conditions. It was also
represented that as an alternative for
retaining the present coal license fee
higher wild land tax would be in order.
The board adjourned for one week.
GREAT SIMILKAMEEN
A BED OF ORE
Half Has Not Been Told of
Its Riches—Awaiting the
Iron Horse—Healthful Climate.
Editor Star—Sir: Now that petitions are in circulation asking Dominion
and Provincial governments to aid in
construction of Coast to Kootenay railroad, it may not be out of place to give
a few reasons why the road should be
built. We have very large and numerous mineral deposits in the upper Similkameen, both high and low grade, which
when developed will give employment
to thousands and make this section the
most important in the province. Copper mountain has a tremendous outcrop
of copper ore covering a ve
and for the greater part of a very much
higher grade than is found in the Boundary district, and, when there is a cer
tainty of a railroad there will be no diffi
culty in finding capital for development
purposes. On the Tulameen river, more
especially on Bear and Boulder creeks,
there are many high grade mineral properties, strong leads of good width, easily
traceable for a long distance and of values that will satisfy the most
tive. We have also agricultural
which will more than equal other sec
tions which have railroad connection
And, last but not least, we have one oi
the most glorious and healthful climate:
on the face of the globe—usually light
snowfall in the winter and in summi
bright warm weather, which, togeth*
with the beautiful scenery, will make the
Similkameen one of the ideal resorts ol
the future. Yours truly,
Chari.es E. Thomas.
Princeton, Dec, 15.
Liberal Association.
At a meeting   of the Liberal association held on  Thursday evening it was
resolved: "That renewed confidence be
expressed in the Liberal government at
Ottawa and that its transcontinental railway policy be   heartily endorsed, also
that the support of this association is
tendered for the coming contest."   The
meeting also considered the question of
delegates to the Kamloops convention on
nary 13th, 1904, and decided to act in
son with Hedley in the matter if the
latter would consent.
Lagrippe has bombarded the town and
the 'devil' is a prisoner with some of our
[most esteemed citizens.

COAST TO KOOTENAY
RAILWAY WANTED
Vancouver   Board  of   Trade
Pass Resolutions Urging
Government to Favor
Two Roads.
The Vancouver board of trade at
regular meeting recently entrusted the
framing of a resolution to the provincial
government by a special committee asking the legislature to consider the necessity for the immediate construction of a
direct coast to Kootenay line and the
line from Spence's Bridge to Nicola.
The question of a direct coast to Kootenay railway through the Similkameen
valley was brought to the attention of
the Vancouver board of trade by
pondence emanating from the Princeton
board. The assistance of the Va
and Victoria boards of trade was invited
in the work of furthering early constri
tion of the railway. The Vancou<
board has promptly responded at its first
meeting after the invitation and nc
doubt the   Victoria board will do like-
"In reply to the Princeton board" says
the Vancouver Province, "there will be
sent a' copy of a resolution the Vancouver board passed some months ago favoring the construction of a Coast-Kootenay
line. At ihe time of passing the resolution the Vancouver board practically
pledged itself to push the matter whenever possible, and will again bring the
subject to the attention of the govern-
"By permission, A. B. Clabon, a member of the Rossland board, briefly addressed the meeting regarding the Simil
kameen country, through which he had
recently travelled. The people there, he
said, were keenly alive to the necessity
for transportation facilities and thought
the coast merchants, who would receive
equal benefits, should render them more
assistance. While at Hedley he attended
a crowded public meeting, at which petitions to the government to aid a railway
were drawn up. He told of the great
expense being incurred at the Nickel
Plate and said that if such an expenditure under present conditions was wi
ranted the country must be very rich
minerals, and he had the best authority
for knowing that it was. If only a railway were built the country would soon
be opened up, and Vancouver would gain
a large trade. If the Coast-Kootenay
direct line were not possible for financial
every effort should be made to
the Spence's Bridge line."
The chairman, in thanking Mr. Clabon
for his address, said he had been through
the district and was much impressed with
its isolation and vast possibilities.

Christmas Lives.
Those who have received petitions
re railway should lose no time in having
them signed and returned.
The public school Xmas tree entertainment begins at 7 o'clock next Wednesday evening. The programme is long
and varied. It is expected that genial
Judge Murphy will impersonate Father ''
Christmas on the occasion. Ladies are
all busy with pantry work and children
are on the tiptoe of expectation.
■ ■ A. F. Gwin writes to the board of trade
from Victoria that Mr.Shatford, M.L.A.,
is pushing the Coast Kootenay railway
proposition with energy and he fully expects to have definite results shortly.
How best to resuscitate the local Miners' Association is among the various subjects to be discussed at the next meeting
of the board of trade. Miners please attend.
C. Willerson and P. Johnson have returned to winter quarters from Copper
mountain where they had been developing their extensive mineral holdings.
Not desiring to make them blush, public
opinion has it that they are the future
Rothschilds or Rockefellers of the Similkameen. Undoubtedly they have mineral enough to make them rank with the
gold bugs of Lombard or Wall street,,
and their friends are a host in all camps.
Contributions of literature to the board'
of trade reading room will be thankfully
acknowledged by the secretary.
. A public meeting at Olalla on Dec. 2
was held to endorse recent meetings held
at Hedley and Princeton on behalf of
coast to Kootenay railway. Want of
space compels the details of it to be reserved for next week's issue.

SOCIAL CONDITIONS.
Philosophic as the above heading
may sound it is intended only to
convey some slight indication of
the trend of social life in so far as
it is affected by conditions which
prevail on the fringe of western
■civilization. There is a something,
be it real, fictitious or romantic,
which attracts men to isolated
places, so frequently found in a days'
journey in the Similkameen. Here
aud there are to be found the
ranchers' isolated homes or the
prospectors' lonely cabins, each having an engraven history in hard
and sharp cut letters that tell of the
"wearying daily toil, of the eager
look up or down the trail for friendly form and voice, or of the gladsome prospect the future lightens
the burdens of the lonely toiler.
All these have a real significance
which mold and fashion men into
a social condition which in the end
makes the history of a country or
locality.
One would think that frontier
life with its happy abandonment of
form and ceremony and its offhand
hospitality would generate a spirit
of chivalrous regard for all that
pertains to social happiness. The
isolated condition of the people
with their once or twice-a-week
outside world communication seems
rather to sharpen the fangs of
envy and sweeten the morsel of
infamy on which the village gossip
thrives. Not among those far removed from the haunts of men, nor
yet among those who follow honest
toil are the poisoned shafts of slander and raillery shot forth—in the
village marts and select social functions they are volleyed forth with
all the deadliness of intent that actuates the man behind the gun.
Honest labor and industry find no
•time to indulge in the nauseous
habit of gossip. The idler, the vicious, the tattler : these are the life
destroyers and persecutors, these
are the enemies of social happiness.
The man who robs another of his
purse takes trash, but the man who
steals from another his good name
has taken a priceless treasure—
Shakespearian and truth.
It is too bad that so much time
is spent in this valley in defamatory
chatter. Here every physical resource of man is required to stem
the natural obstacles in the way of
human comfort and progress. It is
not enough that men should stand
by one another in some particular
hour of distress or misfortune, but
the helping hand should be already
extended in anticipation of its need.
The voice of calumny never yet
healed the sloughing wound made
by the stab of venom ed tongue, nor
has the retold tale of accusing guilt
brightened the pathway of any poor
sin-afflicted mortal. Never man
trode this wide earth, much less
the Similkameen, but bore in his
person the Adamic stain. The missionary or the merchant never lived
upon whom the touch of infallibility
fell with such might as to remove
the tendency downwards, for upwards is a struggle and immunity
from weaknesses will not enable
men to avoid that struggle whereby the goal is attained, for without struggle there is no victory.
The narrow-minded, back-biting
soul who has never come into contact with the world and tasted of its
sweet aud bitter can never fully
appreciate a fault or forgive one.
Those who most strongly denounce
others are invariably the victims of
guilt more heinous than that of the
accused. Besides, their ignorance
except for what they gather out of
the ordinary twiddle-twaddle novel,
would hardly enable them to distinguish a fault from a virtue, if
even that would be sufficient. Men
of the Similkameen your brother
has faults as well as you and the
remedy lies in a forgiving spirit;
women, your sister in scarlet it may
be had never known the broad highway but for the unforgiving scorn
—reach out the hand in forgiving
touch, so may all be forgiven.
Before the Star reaches its readers again another Christmas will
have flown into the great past and
another opportunity to extend the
nnual greetings will have been
irrevocably gone. If there are any
to whom offence was unintentionally
given in its pages during the year
the humble pardon is begged and if
there be any to whom an apology
of any kind is due the figurative
and the real hand is extended—to
all a very happy Christmas.
