and become a citizen of Canada.
F; P. Cook vs. E. E. Hardwick, for
debt, was the only case brought before
Judge Spinks at the county court Case
enlarged.
The Okanagan Herald has been recently started at Vernon and is a most
welcome exchange, being bright, original
and mechanically superior to any paper
in that section.
Ambrose McDermott, of Hedley, was
in town Thursday making application
before the commissioners for a license for
the Similkameen hotel at Hedley.    Mr.
• McDermott is a successful hotel manager
• and is personally popular with guests and

GeorR. Philp, the courteous and efficient secretary-treasurer of the A. E.
Howse Co., left for Nicola last Monday.
A bet of $500 against $50 has been laid
in the riding.by twmgentlemen of strong
political faiths that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will be the next premier.
The A. E. Howse Co. of Nicola and
Princeton have purchased a carload of
coal oil for customers. They have also
on the way from eastern manufacturers a
large stock of staple and fancy goods
for Christmas and winter.
Joe Fitzharris came down from Elliott
creek last Sunday where he has been
working all summer on his mineral properties adjoining the Cousin Jack. He
has no doubt whatever as to the result of
future developments of the camp. Sufficient is now known to warrant the statement that there are 'oceans of ore' of
good grade and easily accessible.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., has gone to
Montreal on business connected with the
purchase of the T. Ellis estate at Penticton.
/At the
Government School^

the re-election of the old board of trustees was unanimous. The school is now
fully organized as a government sustained institution in complete ownership
of the building and site. 'Xhe interest on
the mortgage, $40.25, was partially raised
by subscription, the following being a list

to the center of the site and erect an addition to the present totally inadequate
school room.
MINING PARAGRAPHS RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Mining Industry is Backbone
of Province and is in
Healthy State.
The Nickel Plate at Hedley is Rich
Beyond Fabled Story—LeRoi's
Monthly Profit.
A cablegram to London from Rossland
says: "Shipped from the mine, to _the
North port smelter during past month,
8312 tons of specially selected ore, containing dio'vounces of gold. 3911 ounces
of silver and 199,000 pounds of copper.
•Estimated profit on this ore, afterdeduct-
ing cost of mining, smelting, realization
and depreciation, $28,500; expenditure
on development work during the month,
$5.5oo."
The Ymir mine - reports a profit of
$1,611 for the month of August. An expenditure of $1,232 for the same period
was made on development work."
The flume which supplies the water
power for the Daly Reduction Co. at
Hedley, was recently broken by a detached boulder falling upon it, causing a
shut down of some hours. When it is
computed that the gold output of the
mill averages a little more than $10 per
minute it is easy to understand the importance of a few hours cessation of work.
So far as known no similar plant in the
world can at all compare with the Daly
Co's. 4.0-stamp mill in gold product. Yet
there is little ado in mining circles about
the phenomenal value of Nickel Plate
ore. There are "others" in the Similkameen which only require capital to prove
it. The Daly mill is one in which the
gods could grind most surely and richly.
The Granby Mining and Smelting Co.
is now controlled by Boston and New
York capitalists, 950,000 shares having
gone to them, while 380,000 remain in
Canadian hands Net profits for the year
ending Oct. 1 were $283,000.
Railway Ties will be Required.
A party of gentlemen who are largely
interested in timber in this province and
Washington arrived in town Wednesday
evening via Hedley. Their names are
P. D. McKellar, Bellingham; G. B. Campbell, Glencoe, Ont.; J. McGregor, Enderby, B.C.; H.Healey, Bellingham.Wash.
They outfitted here for a cruise to the
headwaters of the Tuiameen tributaries
returning here to refit for explorations
into the Hope mountains and Roche river
country. Though reticent as to their requirements in j the line of timber it is
understood they are in search of railway
tie material. Indications are not lacking
that considerable activity in lumbering
operations near Princeton will relieve the
monotony this coming winter.
President Hill Interested in the
Hudson Bay Route to
Old Country.
C.P.R. Goes Into Spokane while the
Great Northern Strikes Out
for Similkameen.
J. J. Hill is now said to be giving earn
est attention to the development of the
Hudson Bay route to Europe. This route
will help him use the steamships he has
been building and give him an independent line of rail and ocean transporta
tion to the European markets.
In retaliation for the Great Northern
coming into the Similkameen it is almost
certain the C.P.R. will enter Spokane
over the Corbin road.
Reliable information has been received
that a grading contract west of Midway
has been let on the V.V. & E. Surveys
are now completed to the boundary north
of Night Hawk. Ranching properties
are in demand along the route.
Heard Many Inquiries.
R. Neil and   Judge   Spinks of Ver
non came up from Hedley last Friday
where the judge was scheduled to hold
court.    Mr. Neil  is the enterprising liv
eryman at Vernon and reports that town
as forging ahead rapidly.   There has been
a large'influx   of  well-to-do Manitoba
farmers in  that section and the price of
farm lands has doubled in consequence
Owing to  the  unueual  drouth this year
agricultural  products   are   much  below
average but fruit is bountiful.    He heard
many inquiries about the Similkameen
from persons who desired small holdings
for mixed farming.    Mr. Neil sees a great
future in store for Princeton and may establish   a branch  of his large  business
here in due time.
Sizing the Coal Measures.
Lewis Stockett and Paul Reisinger of
Great Falls, Mont., arrived in Princeton
last Sunday, having come from Loomis,
Wash., by special conveyances. They
are consulting coal experts and their mis-,
sioii tiere is to investigate the measures
as to extent and quality. Mr. Stockett
found the Princeton coal basin to contain
an area of twenty square miles. As to
quality he had no hesitation in saying it
was first class. From Princeton the gentlemen went to Collins' gulch, about 25
miles up the TuTameen, which they will
also investigate as to extent and quality
of coal there, passing on to the well
known Nicola coal fields. Mr. Stockett
sees great possibilities in agriculture for
this district as the soil is fertile and only
requires irrigation. He thought the
great and varied resources of the SimiP
)0m
kameen ■ ought soon to induce railway
construction which must precede mining
operations on a large scale, rjlrfccohversa-
tion Mr. Stockett's technical knowledge
of the earth proves nlosx interesting and
instructive, especially so were nisremarks

THE OPPOSITION LEADER.
Whatever the Conservative party
may  have  been  in the days of its
great leader,  Sir John A. Macdon-
ald, it is now the  weakest political
organization sih.ce Canada became a
Dominion.     Since  that statesman
passed  away   there   has  been   no
I leader  worthy  of the  name in the
party.    Dissension, feud and heresy
characterized  the  short-lived Tory
ministries  which   followed  in  the
■  wake  of Sir John's  decease,   until
the    last   premier,   Sir  Mackenzie
Bowell,   described   his own cabinet
as  nothing  less  than   " a nest  of
traitors."
Without  a  policy, execpt one of
obstruction ; without   an   aim,   except  selfish   ambition ; the present
Conservative leader lacks the essential qualifications for premier.    Mr.
Borden   has    never   risen   to   the
height of formulating a great measure for the public good upon which
to appeal to  the reason of the people.     Rather would   he  appeal to
the  voter  through   some   trick   of
debate, some  slip  of the tongue of
his  opponent, wherewith   to wrest
a  meaning    altogether   foreign   to
that intended.    That kind of thing
may please the  Tory rabble but it
is not  statesmanship nor is it honorable.
As shown by the debates on the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway Mr.
Borden is merely a quibbling critic
floating upon a sea of words and as
shifty as the sands on the shore.
First, he opposed it because he
said the country through which it
passed was not capable of sustaining a railway. Finding that argument shattered by the Liberals he
attacks the cost of the road with
no better success. Then he advocates the use of the Dake Superior
section of the Canadian Pacific railway (a Conservative ally) as a link
. in the Grand Trunk.Pacific. Now,
as a last resort, in recent speeches
since the campaign began he expatiates on the merits of a government
owned road from the Atlantic to the
Pacific.
Driven to the last ditch the Conservative leader is about to make
his last and fatal leap. He cannot
hope to lead even a subservient
• party with a jumbled policy of attack and retreat. Soon his own
men will lose confidence in him and
another  "nest of traitors"  will be
unearthed.      Thus,    for   want   of
ability and honesty of purpose Mr.
Borden  must pass off the scene of
leadership  and  his   aspirations  to
the premiership doomed to remorseful disappointment.   Compared with
Premier Laurier there is all the difference  between  a  ward politician
and the statesman ; between a gentleman   of   an  unspotted    political
career   of thirty   years and the apprentice  of dubious ' methods   and
scant ability.    Tbe electors of Yale-
Cariboo  cannot   err  in   again   endorsing    Premier    Laurier   whose
preferential tariff has- made him as
popular in Britain as in Canada and
whose  aim is   to preserve unity of
the  empire  and   make  Canada  a
great nation within it.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The elevation of Aulay Morrison,
barrister, of New Westminster, to
the Supreme Court gives entire satisfaction to all who appreciate sterling, worth and ability. From a
poor country boy to a seat on the
highest judicial bench in the. province is a record he may well be
proud of. The Star hopes that he
may be long spared to fill the position he is so well qualified to adorn.
As  proof of the statement  that
neither  the  C.P.R.   nor   the Conservatives favor the construction of
the Grand Trunk  Pacific Mr. Borden said in the house of commons :
" I do   not   propose  the immediate
construction   of  a transcontinental
line.    I believe at some time in the
future it might be necessary to have
a  transcontinental   line   built   and
operated   at   tbe cost of the people
of   this   country."      Mr.   Borden's
lieutenant, R. B. Osier, the millionaire M.P. for Toronto, is a director
of the  C.P.R.,   therefore   it   goes
without saying that he and his company are  opposed   to a competitive
line of railway.
NOTICE is hereby given that sixty days after
date I intend to apply to the Chief Commissioner
of Lands and Works for permission to purchase
640 acres of.mountain pasture lard, situated and

NOTICE.
The cost to the Dominion for the
building of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway is limited to  the eastern
division,   between   Winnipeg   and
Moncton, and that, according to Mr.
Borden's   own reckoning, is to cost
only about $75,000,000.    The government   has  not    undertaken   to
spend a  dollar   between  Winnipeg
and  the  Pacific  ocean on the construction  of the line.    It  guarantees bonds to  the amount of three-
fourths of the cost of construction, I
but the  company  is to find all the
capital and, except for the first seven
years on the mountain section, pay
all the interest as well as repay the
principal.    The eastern or government  section  will be leased to the
company  at  an annual rental of 3
per cent, on the cost of construction,
$75,000,000,   which  would yield a
revenue of $2,250,000  every  year

which bind us to the mother country,
and fully endorsing a policy which means
so much to the western portion of the
Dominion, and more particularly to the
district of Yale-Cariboo, I await with
confidence, your verdict.
Yours very sincerely.

AN ENGLISHMAN'S VIEW.
laurier Gave Deeds, Not Promises-
English Imports Into Canada.
It is a matter for regret that so many
public men of Canada are deliberately
dishonest in their public utterances. The
people have a right to know the truth
and to expect something better from public men than distorted statements. Geo.
Eulias Foster, he who was once a shining
light in the Tory ranks, but whose services have lately been rejected by every
constituency whose favor he has sought,
had the bad taste at the manufacturer's
banquet to charge Sir Wilfrid Laurier
with insincerity in adopting preferential
trade with the mother country, aud he
was rightly sat upon ,by Sir Howard Vincent, an eminent Englishman, who was
present.   Sir Howard said :
11 met Sir Wilfrid on the occasion of
the Imperial conference. As soon as the
Laurier government came into power and
its hands were free, a substantial preference was given England. His (Sir Wilfrid) words were memorable when he announced in parliament that British goods
would pass into Canada hereafter on more
favorable terms-than foreign goods. This
concession had been given freely. It was
a generous act. and he did not think it
was possible after that to ray that Canada
had made no offer. Sir wilfrid had given
deeds instead of promises. He felt he
could say the result thus far had-been
satisfactory to Canada. In proof of which
ibe gave the figures that in 1896 goods im-
-ported to Canada from Great Britain
amounted to ^"29,000,000. In 1903, six
years after the preference was granted,
the imports to Canada reached ^"58,000,-
000. Moreover, Canada's exports to
■Great Britain in 1896 were ^"62,000,000,
while in 1903 these had reached ^"125,
■ 000,000—more than double."

"What do you think of brass bands?"
asked he, thinking of the free concerts
at the park. "Brass bands are better

gazing at the third finger of her left hand,

Bourke Cockran was asked by a St.
Louis reporter to give the public some
advice on the art of public speaking. "A
youth," Mr. Cockran answered, smiling,
"once went with your question to an old
Englishman who had made a good success as a lecturer. " ' How may I become, sir,' said the youth, 'a successful
public speaker like yourself?' The old
lecturer laughed. ' Tha wants to be a
public speaker, do tha, lad?' he said.
'An' tha think Awm the chap to put tha

lad, Ah am. Now hark tha. When tha

THE    SIMILKAMEEN'   ST A R
A SPLENDID RECORD.
Unity and Prosperity   are  Canada's
Blessings Today.
The progress of Canada, socially and
commercially.under Liberal rule, is something not only the Liberal party, but the
nation as a whole, Conservative and Liberal, has reason to be proud of. During
the Liberal regime Canadian exports have
risen from $110,000,000 in 1896 to $214,-
000,000 in 1903, that is, they have increased nearly as much during the seven
years of Liberal rule as they have in all
the long precegingjperiod. Imports have
more than doubled in the same seven
years. The exodus of emigration, which
had taken across the boundary 1,200,000
native born Canadians, has .been converted into a tide of immigration iuto
the country, scores of thousands of these
Canadians or their descendants returning
to their motherland.
Greatest of all, the evils of race and
religious prejudice, which, under Tory
rule, threatened to curse this fair laud,
even to result in civil war, have been
overcome by the splendid tact and statesmanship of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Liberal leader, ably seconded by his loyal
supporters, and English and French,
Protestant and Catholic, live together in
harmony, save for the discreditable appeals to race and religious prejudice that
the Tory press and speakers make from
titne to'time' ^n the hope of stirring up
sectional or religious strife in their des-
. perate endeavor to regain the power of
government—a power, there is uo ijuaf^
antee that they would exercise, if they
got it, any better than before, when the
birthright of, the people was despoiled
for the enrichment of the family compacts of those days.' With the Liberal
government of Canada also originated
the first practical steps toward imperial
federation, 'when Canada instituted a
preferential tariff policy towards the
mother country.—Okanagan Herald, Vernon. 1/
Post Office Department Surplus.
The annual report of the Post Office
department shows a surplus of $304,771
for the year aud this in the face of reduced postage rates, improved mail service and increases of salaries. Sir Wm.
Mulock, the postmaster-general for Canada, is to be congratulated on his record.
From a condition of deficits and unsatisfactory service, Sir William-has brought
the postal department to the position of
the most efficiently conducted depart
ment of the public service. ff.
It is a wonder the Tories don't blame
the Liberals for the high prices for wheat
which mean continued prosperity on the
prairie and a big demand for British Columbia lumber this fall.
