PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, JUNE J 7, 1905.
$2 a Year, in Advance
Legal Happenings.
In the magistrate's court on Thursday
before J's.P. Groves and Thomas the adjourned case of Watt vs. Rabbitt, trespass, was heard. The Department of
Lands and Works issued two records of
preemption for the same land to both
parties, hence the trouble. Case dismissed. This is a case in which the
Solomonic wisdom of the Chief Commissioner of Lands alone will suffice.
Before license commissioners Thomas,
Megraw and Cook on Thursday transfer
of hotel license from J. Wallace to A.
Bryant was granted. New licenses were
issued to John Cosgrove, Similkameen
City; C. J. Peterson, Hedley and Wm.
C. McLean, Ashnola. Court will beheld
at Hedley on 27th inst. to consider application of A. Jackson for license there.
J. Jameson was committed for trial on
June 10th at Fairview before Stipendiary
Lambly for attempted rape. Application
has been made for bail. Case will probably be heard at Kamloops fall assizes.
The Gladstone is a Mine.
E. P. Wheeler, of Conconnully, Wash.,
arrived in town last week on his way to
Friday creek, where he has miners McMullen and Crowley at work developing
the Gladstone. Some very pretty peacock copper ore is now showing in the
tunnel and the prospect is very promising that body and values have been attained. An open cut 30 feet in depth has
been made on a 7 foot vein of high grade
ore, which is now tapped at 100 feet in
depth by tunnel. Drifting has begun in
this ore which yields $ri in gold and 8
per cent copper. There is a width of 250
feet of low grade ore on the claim which
has all the .natural accesories for easy
production. The mineral zone consists
of granite, syenite and trap, the two last
named being well mineralized. A large
amount of work was done on the Gladstone some years ago from which assays
running as high as 60 per cent in copper
have been obtained. A company has
been formed with Mr. Wheeler president,
J. L. Spath, secretary, and known as the
Columbia Copper Mining Co. The Gladstone is one of many mines in this section ready to ship whenever "Jim" Hill's
ore cars arrive. Work will continue all
summer and Mr. Wheeler expects with
further development to confirm the general opinion here that the Gladstone is a
valuable property. He returned home
Thursday and will be an occasional visitor here in the coming months.
G. W. Howe, agent for the British
Columbia Directory and Business Gmae
arrived in Princeton yesterday for the
purpose of gathering general information
to be used in compiling this useful book.
It will give the name and address of every
business house in this district. Every
facility should be given the agent to enable him to accomplish needed object.
BOUNDLESS IN HOPE
Railway Situation at Ottawa
Unchanged but Mr. Ross
Remains Hopeful.
Bye Electionss Prove Liberal Party's
Sound Policy Regarding the
School Question.
There is hope now that the deadlock in
railway legislation at Ottawa for the past
month may be broken. While the two
important bye elections of London and
Oxford were on it was barely possible to
secure a quorum in the house and the
railway committee was in even worse
plight. Those elections are now over
and members are now in their places.
The committee may be expected to dispose of those vexatious charter amendments immediately. There is a well
founded report abroad that the two Great
Northern engineer parties now here will
begin survey of the Similkameen and
Tuiameen river routes west of Princeton
as soon as a favorable decision of the
committee is received.
The election in London of Hon. C. S.
Hyman, minister of public works, by a
majority of 250 over Gray and of Smith
in Oxford over Wallace by a majority of
383, with chances of increased majorities
when full returns are in, is a knock-out
blow against Conservatives. Hon. Mr.
Hyman had. only 15 of majority in last
general election. These victories are a
substantial vincication of Liberal principles as affecting the autonomy of newly
formed provinces, and they are also the
reward of a wise, honest and impartial
premier. What more can the rabble
press and politicians say in attack of the
school question ?
Enow a Good Thing when they See It.
While other towns are throwing nosegays at themselves Princeton prefers to
let others sing its praises. The following
from the Loomis Prospector is :eal nice
and not a bit overdrawn : "J. J. Bennett
and A. S. Long returned last Friday evening from a trip up the Similkameen
valley as far north as Princeton, B. C;
Aside from the pleasure of the drive
through the beautiful valley they saw
much to interest them from a business
point of view. They stopped at Hedley
and were permitted to go through the
extensive plant of the Daly Reducttoi
Co., one of the most complete ln^ne
province. They found Hedley a growing
and promising camp, but for beauty of
location consider Princeton to be the best
point on the upper Similkameen, surrounded by coal and other mineral deposits. They are of the opinion that
Princeton is the coming town of British
Columbia."

W. C. McLean and family arrived in
Princeton on Monday last from Nelson
and will go into residence as soon as his
furniture arrives. As a railroad contractor he quite naturallv takes a great interest in the projected lines into the Similkameen. He is most sanguine that two
lines will be built. What gives him such
firm conviction is the fact that every
foot of the country affords tonnage in
minerals of some kind. His large interests in the district will demand his personal attention and as a fellow citizen he
will be found in the vanguard of progress. Mr. McLean will take a seat at
the next board of trade meeting.
Portland's Great Exposition.
With a view to honoring the great province of British Columbia arrangements
have been made by the managers of the
Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition
at Portland to set apart the days beginning Monday, July 3 and ending Saturday, July 8 as "British Columbia Week."
A "Dominion of Canada Day" has already been arranged for Saturday, July
ist. Every British Columbian will appreciate the courtesy extended and by
attendance and good will prove their sincere friendship. It is unfortunate that
the Similkameen had not a representative mineral display at the exhibition
but there were great difficulties in the
way of making collections and it was
deemed the wiser course by the board of
trade to make none if not wholly typical
of the district.
Drowned in the Similkameen.
Last Sunday a promising and likable
young man named Tommy Robinson was
drowned in the Similkameen near Allison. He was in the employ of the Hedley Lumber Co. as river driver and was
engaged in breaking a jam of logs with
comrades when it gave away suddenly
and the boat in which they jumped being
struck with a log pitched all into the chill
water. Though a good swimmer poor
Robinson never reached shore with the
others and sank beneath the swift running waters never to rise again. It is
supposed that he took cramp and thus

servative or belong to that  hybrid
species of journal whose opinions
are   manufactured   to   catch   the
crumbs which fall from  the  hands
of  the   overfed   corruptionist and
bloated railway  monopolist.     The
flip-flop attitude of any  person  or
newspaper   on   matters   of  public
policy   can   hardly   carry   weight
with thoughtful and  upright men,
but their influence on unsuspecting
or ignorant bodies often delays and
hampers progress.    All  the arguments used by the  newspapers  opposed  to the   construction   of the
V. V. & E.   by   those  holding its
charter  are   as   tinkling   cymbals
when   their   origin  and   aim   are
known.    The Province, the Colonist, the Nelson Tribune and all of
that ilk are controlled by  monopolists or are managed in the interests
of self and graft.    The Colonist is
owned by that Conservative millionaire and high priest of monopoly,
James Dunsmuir;  the  Province  is
managed for purely monetary considerations,   and   as   such   is,   no
doubt, is a success, but its editorials
convey no idea of solicitude for the
public weal—it is nothing more nor
less than the   mouthpiece   of  the
C.  P. R.;   the   Nelson    Tribune,
which has lately been filled with  a
flatulent patriotism, is tbe organ of
a self-willed individual who is ready
to lend his columns  to   a   mighty
railway corporation and thus hinder
development in  the Similkameen.
Mr.   Houston worked  might and
main for that foreign enterprise, the
Nelson and Fort Shepherd railway,
but now he opposes a similar railway into a district in which he has
no interest.    What has caused  his
change in attitude readers are  well
able to judge when he defends  the
C. P. R., but why  not  oppose the
building of the C. P. R. into Spokane on the same grounds ?
The newspapers alluded to argue
that if the Great Northern is al-
Daly Reduction Co., the Granby
Co., and the B. C. Copper Co.
Everybody knows the excellent
reputation of these companies for
business and all they ask and all
they require is the V. V. & E. to
enable them to carry out their projected improvements and developments.
Were ever more foolish and utterly
nonsensical arguments put forth by
a hireling   press  than those of the
papers  mentioned?     Is  the great
Similkameen mineral  district, with
millions of money already invested
in it, to remain a bear pasture and
home of the yelping coyote because
an ignoble press and an all-devouring monopoly   want   it  made the
prey  of their   own  greed and rapacity ?    Unfortunately for B.C., its
government and  the   press  at  its
disposal  have  never really desired
progress and a  full provincial exchequer or  there would have been
railways    into   the   Similkameen,
Cariboo and other rich mineral districts in   the   vast interior northwards long ere now.
President Hill is the great apostle
of low gradients in  railway building.    On  his lines  constructed in
B.C. he is able to haul double the
load of his competitor  and that is
very mean  and  unpatriotic of him
for it will lower freight rates to the
shipper and drive the Canadian road
into a corner—hence the  hirelings
howl.    He does  not ask a cent of
subsidy or concession of any kind,
he only asks the reasonable permission to deflect his line south of the
international boundary to obviate a
mountain.
With easy grades Mr. Hill is able
to put a line with steep grades or
iumpoffs out of business. That is
what is happening in the Boundary
and in East and West Kootenay.
He is also tbe pioneer of non-
bonussed railways in B.C., being

Unique Saloon Advertisement.
The following unique saloon advertisement appeared in a Tennessee newspaper
and has been widely copied by the press
of the United States and Canada:
"Friends and Neighbors; Having just
opened a commodious shop for the sale of
liquid fire, I embrace this opportunity oi
informing you that on Saturday next I
shall commence business of making
drunkards, paupers and beggars, for the
sober, industrious and respectable portion of the community to support. I
shall deal in familiar spirits which will
incite men to deeds of ridt, robbery and
bloodshed by so doing; diminish their
comfort, augment the expenses and endanger the welfare of the community.
I shall undertake at short notice and
for a small sum, and with" great expedition to prepare victims for the poorhouse,
the prison and the gallows.
.   I will furnish an article which will increase the amount of fatal accidents, and
multiply the  number of distressing diseases, and render those which iare harm
less incurable.   I   shall   deal   in dru^t
which will deprive some of life, most of
property, and all of peace; which will
cause fathers to become thieves, wives
widows, children orphans, and all mendicants.    I will cause mothers to forget
their offspring and cruelty  to take the
place of love.     I will sometimes even
corrupt the ministers of religion and ob
struct the progress of the gospil, defile
the purity of the church and cause soir
itual and   eternal   death.     And   if any
should be so impertinent as to a-k why i,
have the audacity to bring such accumu
lajive misery upon such a ccmpirativeh
happy   people,   my   honest    reply   is,
"money."-
The spirit trade is lucrative and some
professing christians give it their cheerful
countenance. I live in a land of liberty,
I have a license, and if I do not bring
these evils upon you, somebody else will.
I purchased the right to demolish the
character, destroy the health, shorten the
lives and ruin the souls of those who
choose to honor me with their custom. J
pledge myself to do all that I have herein
promised. Those who wish any of the
evils above specified brought upon thetn
selves, or their dearest friends, rre re
quested to meet me at my bar, where I
will, for a few cents, furnish them with a
certain means of doing so."

quirements of the Act as to residence
may be satisfied by residence upon the
said land.
