Editor Star—Sir: I saw an artic
in the Star headed "A Man to Repi
sent Us," in which the writer states, "he
must be fearless, strong
tool of his party, placing the interest of
his constituents and the country at large
above  those   of  partyism,"   and   other
things in the same strain.   He goes on to
tell us that Dr. A. C. Sinclair is the man.
I,   as   a   Liberal,   have   nothing to say
against Dr. Sinclair.    But I wish to ask
Mr. Northey if he is a Liberal and how
long is it since he became <
and he wishes the Liberal
for Dr. Sinclair, he had better get in li
and join some of the Liberal clubs and
work for his nomination.   Because the
Liberals will not accept any man as thei:
candidate who does not get his
tion from the convention, and
being a slave to partyism,  I think the
Liberals prefer a straight one to a flop-
per,  or a representative; who is pledged
to no party or nothing.    We have hs
taste of  that in the past.    Or, does
Northey intend to run his man as a I
eral-Conservative, Liberal-Socialist, o
a straight Liberal.   The Liberals will
stand for any more coalitions.   We have
had enough   of   that in our provincial
governments in the past few years   Hop
ing Mr Northey will give  us.sonie liglt
on the subject, I remain, yours truly,
A Straight Liberal,.
Stabbed His Partner.
A cutting affray took place near Keremeos on the night of the 4th inst. Bap
tiste Surprise and another half breed
named Harry Dick were riding along the
road together when Harry proceeded to
carve his bosom friend. The police are
after Harry but it is doubtful if they get
him. He has only been a short time
of the penitentiary where he had
finished a two years' sentence for horse
stealing.
Weather has been mild and comfortable for the past month, differing very
much from that of a year ago. However,
there is plenty of time yet for an abundance of snow.
Coal is in good demand down the river.
A coal and wood yard at Hedley ought
to be a good investment.
The Board of Trade meeting on Wednesday evening was well attended and
the meetings grow in importance at each
successsive gathering. Imperial preferential tariff and reciprocity with Uncle
Sam are to be considered at a future
meeting.
The weekly rehearsals of the Jolly Glee
Club by conductress Miss Moore have
lost nothing in utility and attractiveness.
Former members of the D.D.'s now somewhat estranged by distance and occupation will return to their new found love
at the first opportunity. Princeton ! thy
attractions are not equalled anywhere !    j
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
Brief News Notes and Personal Mention of People Passing.,
A. F. Gwin, now at the coast, has been
negotiating the sale of some Vancouver
island mines. Mr. Gwin has acquired
some mining interests in this section and
will in all probability develop them upon
his return.
Coal licenses are to be doubled in price
which makes them $100. It will stop
'wildcats' and help out the provincial
deficits somewhat.
Ernest Thomas is visiting relatives
here having arrived from California some
two weeks ago. His faith in the Similkameen is still as great as ever and he
heard many inquities about it
Harry Charters of Aspen Grove had a
horse stolen recently which he recovered
at Fairview from a man named Banford.
'Prof.' Wigmore has been engaged tc
characterize Santa Claus at the Xmas
tree entertainment to be given for scholars in the Thomas hall. The 'Prof.'
has a reputation for being the most comical man in the Similkameen which will
be given full scope on the occasion re-
There were several dogs poisoned a
week ago about the town and the query
now is: Who did it ? Whateyer could
have prompted the deed cruelty was at
the bottom. For who but an obdurate
unfeeling being would take away the life
of an innocent dumb brute to wreak a
spite upon its owner. It is hoped the
perpetrators may soon be brought to
justice and prevent further deeds of this
J. H. Jackson, formerly of the Jackson
hotel, this town, has resumed management of this popular hotel, having taken
control in the early part of the week.
T. H. Parr, P.L.S., has completed his
coal surveys and recently surveyed Sam
Peers' ranch.
J. H. Bromley is having his dwelling
refitted inside and out. Mr. Bromley has
a splendid ranch and is up-to-date in
farming methods, growing fruit and vegetables for local markets.
The Xmas tree entertainment is making very favorable progress under the
energetic management of the teacher,
Miss J. Moore. Mrs. Hewat will receive
contributions in furtherance of the entertainment.
Electric light was first used at Hedley
l Saturday night last the dynamo being
driven by steam power. The flume is
expected to be complete by the first of
new year. Steam tests now being
made of Princeton coal at the Daly Re-
ion Works are highly satisfactory,

NICOLA LIBERAL ASSOCIATION,
Urge Immediate Action in View of
Impending Campaign.
At a meeting of the Nicola Liberal
Association held on the ist inst., the following resolution was unanimously
adopted:
"That in view of a Dominion election
being held in the near future, we deem it
expedient that a convention of the Liberals of Yale-Cariboo district be called
date in the Liberal interests. We have
received circular letters from the Kam
loops Liberal Association and the Greenwood Liberal Association bearing upon
the same subject and we agree with thei
that Kamloops would be a suitable plac
for holding the convention, but wish to
emphasize that in justice to the candi
date who will be selected that we an
strongly of the opinion that no time
should be lost in holding a convention,
This is urgent, not only on account of |
the probability of a very early campaign
but also from the fact that the constituency of Yale-Cariboo is one of the largest ridings in British Columbia and
ample time should be given our a
date to canvas the district. It is
opinion that the basis of representation
should be one delegate for each fifty votes
polled at the recent provincial election
and that such delegates shall have credentials from the Liberal associations
having jurisdiction over the polling subdivision they represent, and that proxies
be allowed but that no delegate be entitled to more than five proxies. To facilitate matters this 'association is willing
that the call for the convention should
be made by the Kamloops Liberal A
ciation along the lines suggested in this
Railway Meeting.
There was a'hot time in Olalla the
other evening when some resolutions
for the purpose of petitioning the provincial and Dominion governments for a
railroad from the coast to Kootenay
through the Similkameen valley, and
asking for a bonus from both governments were presented for discussion.
Some   of     the    audience     claimed   it
a little too soon to jump on Mr. Shat-
ford, M.L.A., to redeem his election
pledges. Others said a pledge was always
redeemable, and   "sooner   the better."
'as generally agreed that if the Provincial government would remove obstacles the Great Northern would not delay
building a road and without a bonus.
W. C: McDougall acted as chairman and
the meeting was full of interest through-
an extended report of which is unavoidably crowded out.
Tr^^Camborne Miner in East Kootenay has been acquired by G. R. Northey.

Petition From Nicola.
The following petition is being circulated throughout the whole of Nicola
and Aspen Grove and will be sent immediately to the legislative assembly at
Victoria:
To the Honorable the Legisla tive Assembly of the province of British Column
bia in parliament convened :
We, the undersigned residents of Nicola, pray that your Honorable Body will
at this session assist by a substantial guarantee the project for railway extension
from Spence's Bridge via Nicola into the
Similkameen, and especially that portion
of it   to   which   the  Dominion government at its recent session gave a subsidy.
Twelve years ago,  when the vast resources of this section  of the province
were but partially known, a former legislature resolved to give a liberal guaran-
Most valuable discoveries have been
mad; since that time. Large deposits of
copper, extensive coal measures and great
bodies of valuable iron ore are known to-
Those resources cannot be made available without transportation.
Capital is ready for investment as soon
as railway construction is assured. Ample traffic will be provided on the completion of the railway.
Your petitioners are firmly persuaded
that, if the railway is assisted in a few
years large industries will be in operation and  the   population increased by
thoi
inds.
Yonr petitioners, therefore, earnestly
request that this scheme may have your
support, and they shall, as in duty bound,,
forever pray.
Crossed the Great Divide.
Louis Marcil, an old timer in British
Columbia, and a '49er in California, died
at his ranch on Keremeos creek, on December 4th, after a short illness. He
came around the Horn to California
being then 21 years old. He was 76
years old at the time of his death. He
was one of the lucky prospectors of
Granite creek. During that excitement
he made $2000 with a gold pan in about
six weeks time. He was also, in the
stampede to Wild Horse creek, East
Kootenay. He leaves a wife and two
sons to mourn his loss.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The extensive business carried
on by the department stores drains
this district of a very perceptible
share of its net earnings. In this
respect perhaps Princeton suffers
neither more nor less than other
towns. The fact is, however, that
a lot of dollars are sent away from
here never to find their way back.
For every dollar exported to eastern department stores there is that
.much less of purchasing power
withdrawn that ought to remain for
■circulation in this vicinity. Princeton has need of ail her dollars in
the development of local institu^
tions rather than building up huge
departmental stores in the east.
It is a subject which has been much
in the public mind is that of trade
with departmental stores. No
amount of argument either pro or
con seems to have had any effect
upon the growth of the departmental store. Its development seemed
contingent upon the published
prices, for really that is the basis of
all legitimate business transactions,
which govern, truth to say, the
whole realm of commerce. People
will ask the prices of things. So
long as they have discriminative
powers they will exercise them.
When the local dealer publishes
his prices as the departmental man
does his there will be a satisfaction
which can only result from comparative prices. All things being
equal the home store is to be preferred ; and the hope of this community must centre in unison of
effort to make Princeton a departmental success.
For years the cry has gone up
from British Columbia that there
has not been sufficient home production for local demands. Butter,
cheese, flour, pork constitute real
necessities of life and it is these
products which this province has
had to continually import from the
east. So long as these conditions
exist there will always be a scarcity
of cash among the farmers of this
country. The balance of trade is
against them so long as the staples
mentioned have to be imported.
There is but one solution to the
problem and that is for the farmers
to increase capacities. The remarkable prices of 50c. per dozen for
eggs and 25c. per pound for bacon
can only be accounted for by non-
production in the districts affected.
Farmers, awaken, and supply the
various mining camps with vegetables, dairy and meat rather than
allow them to import to the discredit of the province and district.

since overhearing a conversation between

can't help smiling whenever he hears
anybody spoken of as "a model man."
It appears that one of the young women
was perusing a book, and her companion

GRAFTER POLITICIANS.
Professional Men Do Not Hake the
Best Legislators.
It is becoming more and more evident
that Canadian business men must lay
aside their partizanship and study politic* from the business standpoint only,
says the Canadian Magazine, adding:
"The long session at Ottawa was designed by professional politicians and
grafters to scare business men out of parliament. These wily individuals desire
to keep the business men and independents at home so that the professionals
will have entire control of the country's
revenues. They know that there are few
business men who can afford to spend
eight months of the year in Ottawa and
that a few eight-month sessions will
drive the business men out of parliament.
The attempt should be frustrated. This
can only be done by business men using
their influence with the newspapers and
the electors to frown down this contemptible trickery. The majority of the next
House should be business men pledged
to shorter sessions—business men of both
Conservative and Liberal leanings. The
battle must begin in the conve

Canada is Most Temperate.
Canadians are one of the most temperate people in the world, according to
statistics just publisned, and the French
are the most bibulously inclined. A
computation shows that the French consume about 18 quarts of alcoholic beverages per year per head of population ;
Switzerland 13^; Italy and Denmark 10;
England, Germany and Austria 9; Holland 6; United States 5; Canada 2.
Twenty-five years of temperance work in
England has only reduced the percentage from 10 to9. The remarkable record
of Canada for abstemiousness is 1
creditable to our people, and an object
lesson to the world.
King Edward Mines.
W. A. Haining, of Fairview, Similkameen, managing director of the King
Edward Mines, Ltd,, was in Vancouver
recently and was, of course, seen by the
omnipresent reporter. Mr. Haining, who
has been engaged in mining for the past
twenty-two years, speaks very encouragingly for the prospects of these mines.
A company has just been formed for the
opening up and development of the property of which the following are the
officers: R. H. Parkinson, president; H.

The Nicola Railway.
Messrs. E. A. Jukes and G. A. Begy,
promoters of the Nicola Valley railway,
and C. H. Keefer, their engineer, returned from Victoria where they interviewed the provincial government regarding aid to the project. They are well
satisfied with the result of their interview. The Dominion government has
already granted a subsidy to the railway,
and with the expected provincial aid in
the shape of a guarantee on the bonds,
no difficulty is anticipated in securing
the necessary capital to build the road.
In fact, before leaving for the east Mr.
Begy stated that he confidently anticipated actual construction work would be
started early in the spring of next year. I
