GRAND TRDNK PACIFIC.
—V
SE?g£
A National Requisite for the Progress
of the Country.
The whole of Canada has been awakened to the necessity for a second trans
continental railway. Its building will
open up the great northland to settlement and development, besides giving
competition in land and ocean rates to
the various markets of the world. Un
like the Canadian Pacific during its construction, which purchased its equipment
outside of Canada, the rails, locomotives
and cars for the Grand Trunk Pacific will
be made in Canadian manufactories, thus
distributing many millions of dollars
among the various industries. Construction will begin at the Pacific coast terminus as soon as work begins in the east,
which will be in the early spring of next
year. The large number of laborers required in its construction will tend to
increase wages all over the Dominion.
Even the Similkameen, remote as it is,
will share in the general welfare consequent upon the vast expenditure of quite
one hundred and fifty millions of dollars
when all. is complete. As was to be expected the Conservative opposition to
this scheme is prompted by its relationship to the C.P.R. but the great mass
of the people are in favor of a second
transcontinental line and will support
the government's railway policy.
Goat Held Dogs at Bay.
Up at Otter Flat the denizens,of that
sporting resort seem never to be at a loss^ i
for some excitement. With the hillsj
abounding in all kinds of big game and
Otter lake teeming with fowl and fish
there is no lack of1 adventure to recount
when tillicums meet under the hospitable,
roof of boniface DeBarro. Early the
other morning everybody was awakened^
with a new sensation caused by the unearthly yelps of all sorts and conditions!
of dogs at a splendid buck goat on a
big wood pile in the rear of the hotel,
Every window flew up and a face presented to watch the fun of a scrambling,
barking pack of curs as they charged and
recoiled at his lordship on the pile An
onlooker was about to level his rifle at
the goat but boniface stayed his hand.
The goat grew tired of the howling mob
and made a dash for them with such good
effect that some are thought to be still
a-running, while he is monarch of all he
surveys in his mountain home. It is supposed the forest fires had driven him to
the lake to escape the danger of which
all wild animals are so sensitive.

Bridge Burned Near Otter Flat-
lent Wind Uproots Trees-
Hunting Season.
-Vio
Monday being Labor day it is a lawful
holiday throughout the Dominion.
The first bridge south of Otter Flat
was burned on the 25th ult., thus causing
delay in the arrival of the mail on Saturday last. It has since been replaced and
the road is now all clear of debris brought
down by burning timber. The welcome
rain of Sunday and Monday has stopped
the forest fires and relieved anxiety as to
further damage.
The wind storm of last Sunday after
noon did, some damage by upsetting
fences, trees and a windmill. The wind
came from the southwest in a succession
of whirlwinds which lifted everything
portable in its course. At one time the
air was filled with the gyrating branches
of trees and other loose material^
The close season for grouse and prairie
chicken ended on the 31st August and
remains open till 1st January. For deer,
goat and sheep the close season is from
15th December to 31st Angust.
F. P. Cook of Granite creek returned
this week from a summer's visit to England.
Messrs. Begy and Merritt of St. Catharines, Ont.. made a flying trip from Penticton to Nicola this week in connection
with the Nicola, Kamloops and Similkameen railway, of which they are p;o-
moters. They say the road will be built
when the bonds are guaranteed and a
bonus granted by the local government.
Visitors Made Record Time.
Arthur Hickling, T. G. Claudet and J.
(Bainbridge, of London, Eng., arrived in
Princeton Tuesday night from Penticton
having covered the distance of 70 miles
over a mountainous road in one day^It
was only by relays of horses and skilful
driving that this record time was accomplished. Mr. Hickling, as managing director of the Vermilion Forks Mining
Co., is here on his annual visit. He is a
man of affairs and as such has many enterprises in hand throughout the Dominion and elsewhere which demand personal supervision and much travelling.
However, neither the cares of business
nor the cycles of time seem to affect his
tenure on life. He is always welcomed
to Princeton and will be the guest of Mr.
and Mrs. Waterman for the next couple
ot months. Mr. Claudet is a native of
this province though a resident of London nearly all his life. He is a brother
of the Mr. Claudet who introduced the
Elm6re oil process of smelting into the
Rossland district. Mr. Bainbridge is a
son of one of the largest shareholders in
the V.F*M. Co. and is in this country
seeing a bit of frontier life and hunting
big game.

day celebration .now so near at hand.
A substantial addition is being made to
the Commercial hotel to meet the requirements of an ever-increasing patronage. This addition will also be ready by
Labor day.
Additions and other improvements to
various buildings in town keep the avail-

MINING NOTES.
Splendid Specimen   from   Summit-
Native Copper Showing.
T. A. Rogers, of Boulder creek, leaves
on Sunday for California owing to pressing business engagements. He is highly
pleased with the development of the
Cousin Jack on which some 300 feet of
tunnelling has been made.
Dan Ross is considered a lucky man.
He has a sample of ore which is going to
the Spokane fair that represents a mine
at Summit camp which assays 100 ounces
of silver to the ton, besides gold and lead
values. The ore is galena interspersed
with zinc sulphide in a quartz gangue.
Mr. Ross has exposed considerable body
by an open cut and feels confident that
development will prove it to be a mine
in fact. Summit camp is about 30 miles
northwest of Princeton and is in a section abounding with minerals.
Claude Snowden has been engaged by
the executive of the board of trade to
collect specimens of mineral for the Spokane fair.
All mineral specimens intended for the
Spokane fair should be delivered at once
to the government agent's office.
Wm. Britton and Dan Coutenay came
in from Champion creek on Wednesday
where they have mineral locations. They
(show some pretty specimens of native
copper taken from a sixty-foot ledge.
I Mr. Britton  has other properties in that
able carpenters   busy   and   it seems as
though   a   building   boom   had   struck^ section  on   which   he   has done a large
amount  of  work   and   which  have  all
the ear marks of mines.
W. Yolen Williams, formerly manager
of the Granby smelter, was at Bear creek
recently inspecting mineral properties
there in which he is interested. He is
well satisfied with his investment and
thinks Bear creek district ideal for prospecting-
C. B. Harris has nearly finished grain
harvesting and is well pleased with the
results as the grain was saved in prime
condition and is of good yield. He will
have about a thousand bushels of grain
for sale and will shortly begin threshing
with a machine he acquired from Jack
Thynne.
Sizing Dp the Country.
G. Brandt, of the firm of Johnson &
Brandt, railway contractors on the Phoenix branch of the V.V. & E. and now
under construction by the Great Northern, came in by last Saturday's stage.
His attention was directed to the Similkameen by its reputed wealth in minerals and by the*projected route of the
railway from Midway west to the coast.
Mr. Brandt is much pleased with Princeton and vicinity and predicts a great future for it and, as if to verify his faith he
has invested in various properties. He
sees nothing to prevent railway construction going on into the Similkameen as
soon as the several contracts in the
Boundary are completed this fall. He
will go over the proposed route on his
way to Grand Forks.
C. O. French returned from Nicola on
Tuesday bringing with him some fine
samples of ore and some luscious fruit
either of which is enough to make any
man smack his lips.

A. E. HOWSE-il
SIR WILFRID LAURIER.
No other personality, living or
dead, in this wide Dominion has
* ever been held in such high esteem
and profound respect by the people
as the present premier of all Canada, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Other
premiers had an ephemeral popularity born of certain idiosyncracies,
but Sir Wilfrid's is founded on the
enduring characteristics ol goodness
and genuine worth. In private life
the personification of unaffected politeness, in public life he conquers
his most vicious antagonist with
charming courtesy no less than by
his brilliant parries of debate. As
an orator none have excelled and
but few have equalled in the Canadian house of commons, while by
foreign critics he is compared with
the foremost statesmen of other
countries. In England the leading
paper said of him : " Laurier's
name must live in the annals of the
British Empire," this in recognition
of his loyalty and ability in the
cause of an united empire. The
honors showered upon him while
in England and France and upon
his return to his native Canada
were the spontaneous expressions
of sincere friends arid admirers.
Out of all the strife of over thirty
years of political life he stands
unique today, in the history of
Canadian premiers as one unblemished by the seductive influences
of party, place or power. He has
never deviated in all his honorable
course on the turbulent sea of politics from those principles of truth
and honesty which have defied the
fierce onslaughts of opponents and
shut the mouth of bitterest enemy.
To all these estimable qualities is
added his genius for statecraft
which far transcends that of his
cotemporaries and * so eminently j
qualifies him for the leadership of
the great governing party of a
country which is progressing" at a
marvellous rate.
If the past record of a public
man be any indication of his future
£ course, and it is, no misgivings will
disturb the minds of the people as
to wise and economic government
if Sir Wilfrid be spared to serve his
country. In the sixty-third year of
life he links two generations of
Canadians together which have had
ample  opportunity   of testing  the
capabilities   of  the  two great political   parties—Liberal   and  Conservative.    Himself a  living exposition   of   Liberal  doctrine   be has
practised the little that was worthy
of emulation in the national policy
enunciated by his immediate predecessors ;   for a   Liberal  cannot  be
hidebound or  narrow.    But he has
originated   a greater and better national policy than was ever dreamed
of by the  Conservatives.    For the
first time in the history of any colony he gave  the motherland preferential  trade  in spite of the growls
of foreign governments ;   he  instituted   a   two-cent  rate  of postage
throughout the Dominion and within the  empire,   all which indicates
the'laudable desire to unify the peoples, races and kindreds now forming the vast British empire. Though
begotten  of an  alien race  his loyalty   is   undisputed,  for   he thinks
and acts imperially and thus proves
his attachment to the crown.   With
him preferential   trade with Britain
counts for  more in   preserving imperial unity than battleships or contributions  of money  for  war purposes and that opinion is concurred
in by all true Liberals, for,  to  arm
is to menace, as is observed in Europe today.
Within a year the people of Canada will again be asked to endorse
the Liberal government at Ottawa
with Sir Wilfrid Laurier as premier.
Is he worthy of confidence, judged
in the light of his past record ? Has
he proved a statesman commensurate with the growing needs of the
country ? Is his railway policy
in the interests of the Dominion ?
There can be but one answer to
these questions and it is in the
affirmative. Electors of Similkameen and of Yale-Cariboo will do
well not to reverse the verdict of
former years—Liberalism and progress alone can satisfy their needs.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It has been reported by the Dominion analyst that out of 74 samples of jams and jellies analyzed by
him only 14 were found to be pure.
Enough poison is consumed by eating inferior jam to warrant immediate steps being taken by the government to stop its manufacture and
consumption. If the vile stuff must
be made it could be foisted upon
the Thibetans with good effect as
they are the only nation with whom
the British are at war at present.'
Did anyone say there was to
have been a summer railway session, or was it a-dream that Richard had?
Three doctors and an undertaker
have run foul of the law in Victoria for making away with a cadaver contrary to regulations. Friends
of the dead man went to the record
office to look him up but found nothing, hence, legal proceedings.

LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
G. B. Tucker of Portland, Or., arrived
in Princeton on Tuesday last on his first
visit. He came to look over the countrj'
and on first impressions has decided to
invest. Mr. Tucker is in touch with capi-
/ talists whose attention  has been directed
to the Similkameen by reason of its vast
resources.
J, Jim Jameson  proved his well known
staying qualities as buckario on the back
of a wild cayuse Thursday evening. The
brute bucked- stiff-legged, sideways, endways, humped-the-hoop and finally turned
a somersault, but Jim never left the saddle. It was $5 well earned and Jim asked
tillicums to "take something" on the
strength of the reward, which they were
all pleased to do.
W. H. Kinnear, guest of Mr. and Mrs.
Voigt, Copper mountain, for the past
month, returned to Portland, Or., by
Wednesday's stage.
F. Beglinger of Oshkosh, Wis., secretary of the Boulder Mining Co., arrived
at the Cousin Jack camp last Saturday
and was in town yesterday. Mr. Beglinger has never been so far from a railway before and the novelty produces
a mental effect akin to being lost. He is
very favorably impressed with the coun-
- try and its resources.
A quiet wedding took place recently
at Vernon in which the popular assayer
of the Olalla Copper Mining Co., J. Mac-
donald, was united in marriage to Mrs.
Beadles, who has many friends at Keremeos, where she has taught school for
some time. The Star, with many friends
of the happy couple, congratulate.
It is satisfactory to note that work has
been resumed on Copper mountain road
by foreman Goldsborough, whose services
it is hoped will be retained in building
roads to other mining camps when this
one is completed. The government is
pledged to give roads and trails to mining camps and no time should be lost in
making good those promises.
Gus Pouwels, Charlie Bonniver and
Billy Fearless arrived in from a prospecting trip and report the fires quenched
by the recent rains.
For assaulting J. Blackburn Archie
Raspberry was fined $100 and he and J.
Blackburn bound over to keep the peace

Humorous.
"By George, that Mrs. Ka FHppe is a
stunning woman, isn't she?" "I should
think so. She hit rne with her automobile the other day and it was three hours
before I woke up."
Jinks—I've ridden on this line for five
months and never offered a woman a seat.
Jenks—How do you manage it? Jinks
—Never had a seat to offer.
Captain—Sergeant, note down Private
Dobbs three days on bread and water for
slovenly turning out on parade. Sergeant—Beg pardon, captain, that won't
make the slightest difference to him.
He's a vegetarian. Captain — What!
Then put him on meat and soup for three
days.
This story is told of a Washington
school principal who was trying to make
clear to his class the fundamental doctrines of the Declaration of Independence : "Now, boys," he said, "I will
give you each three ordinary buttons.
Here they are. You must think of the
first one as representing Life, of the second one as representing liberty, and the
third one as representing the Pursuit of
Happiness. Next Sunday I will ask you
each to produce the three buttons and
tell me what they represent." The following Sunday, in accordance with his
plan, the teacher interrogated his class
on the subject of the buttons. "Now
Jacky," he said to the youngest member,
"produce your three buttons and tell me
what they stand for." Whereupon the
youngster began to weep. "I ain't got
'em all," he sobbed, holding out two of
the buttons. "Here's Life an' here's
Liberty, but mommer sewed the Pursuit
of Happiness on my pants."
She—It is said that women are neater
and cleaner than men. He—And yet
you'll go right out on the street with a
long train and make a sweeping denial
of that statement.
Ernestine—How did your automobile
elopement turn out ? Myrtilla—Awfully
sad. Ernestine—How was that? Myrtilla—Why, Harry had only $10 when we
started and after some rural Sheriff fined
Mm the full amount for fast riding he
didn't-HaVe any left for the license or
preacher.
J. Pierpont Morgan is gifted with a
great deal more of humor than is generally known. Not long ago, while in London, he was introduced to a woman who
made some pretensions to peerage. 'Pardon me," said the woman, laughingly,
"to which Morgans do you belong?"
"Oh, we are an independent branch,"
replied Mr. Morgan, slyly, "but we date
back to the Norman kings." "Ah, then
you have a coat of arms?" Mr. Morgan
dug down into his pocket and brought
forth a shining American $20 gold piece.
"This," he said, "is our coat of arms; a
few other families have adopted the same
emblem. But," he continued, confidentially, "we are gathering them in as fast
as possible."

50 cents isn't much,
Yet it will buy about the nicest pound of tea you ever brewed. We
have a little better tea at a little better price, but the majority"
of tea drinkers don't care to pay more than 50 cents a pound,
especially when they can get such a nice blend as our Ceylon at
that price. This tea is bought especially for us, we mix it to suit,
and sell it only in bulk. You can have as much as you want of it
at 50 cents a pound.

NICOLA LAKE AND PRINCETON
September 3, 1904
THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
CONSERVATIVE FORECAST.
Liberals Will Have Victory in   the
General Elections.
As to prospects of the Liberal party in
the country generally when the appeal
shall be taken to the people Liberals
have no misgivings whatever. Making
due allowance for the illusiveness of political sentiment, they do not apprehend;
how they can possibly be defeated. The
Toronto News, edited by J. S. Willison,
the property of a Conservative, says it
does not see where the Conservatives can
expect to make gains to justify hopes of
success. It. thinks the Tories may manage to hold a majority in Ontario, but it
points out that Ontario "seems to have
lost its old ascendancy in national affairs." The News further says: "But
while the opposition will carry. Ontario-;
even if the Grand Trunk should enter
the contest in support of the ministerial
candidates, the Liberal forces in Quebec
seem to be unbroken. Mr. Tarte has
ceased to b.e a political factor : Sir Wilfrid Laurier's supremacy stands unchallenged. It ;is conceded also that Mr.
Fielding, even though he must face the
leader of theiopposition, has lost none of
his strength in Nova Scotia and that large
Conservative gains there are improbable.'
In New Brunswick the government may
do as well as four years ago. Mr. Em-
merson, although he has done better in
parliament than was expected, is not
such a past master in the science of electioneering as MrSS-iBlair, .n£r has he the
force and authority, in New Brunswick
which the former minister of railways
exercised. The Liberals of Prince Edward island must feel the loss of Sir
Louis Davies, but the island is naturally
Liberal, and the chances are that its representation in parliament will remain
practically unchanged. The Conservatives seem to look for their chief gains
in Ontario, in New Brunswick and in the
west. It seems to be admitted that in
Manitoba the voters' lists were neglected
by the Liberals, and that the Conservatives are likely to improve their position.
In. the territories the government has
nominated excellent candidates, and
Liberals seem confident that they will
carry the bulk of the seats."
The News believes British Columbia is
one of the most uncertain quantities in
the situation, an opinion which shows it
is anxious to give the Conservative party
the benefit 'of every doubt. Our contemporary is badly informed upon the
political situation here. British Columbia is as solidly Liberal as it was in 1900.
The contrast between the treatment, the
province has received from the present
government and the neglect of our interests under a former regime has operated
principally to produce this result, but the
policy of the McBride administration in
opposing the lead bounty and all other
movements proposed for the benefit of
the province as a whole, simply because
they originated with Liberal representatives and were accepted by a Liberal government, has not been the least of the
factors in making British Columbia solid
in its support of Sir Wilfrid Laurier,—
Victoria Times.
Knicker—He's made a fortune by his
pert. Bocker—Novelist or poet ? Knick-
er—Neither.    He's a pork packer.
Photographer—Now, sir, if you'll look
a little less as though you had a bill to
meet and a little more as though you'd
just been left a legacy^ yon'11 be a picture.
"She uses slang !" said the cultured
young woman in a tone of deep disapproval. "That isn't the worst of it," answered Miss Cayenne. "She uses slang
that hasn't yet received the sanction of
smart society."
