Ashnola, Which Was and Is.
R. S. Lennie, counsel for the Ashnola
Smelter Co., stated recently at Nelson
that the decision of the county court
judge in Ashnola vs. McArthur would be
appealed. It was chosen by him as a test
case out of a large number of similar actions. He did not know until the trial
that the McArthur information could be
obtained from D. R. Young, whose connection with the company was severed
nearly 2 years ago. McArthur had only a
half interest, in all the other cases the
interests were undivided. Moreover he
had a special verbal agreement with D.
R. Yonng, the agent. All the contracts
were assigned by Young to the Ashnola
Smelter Co., Ltd., as soon as it was
formed, therefore he could not accept
this judgment as determining the other
actions and others will be entered' at
once. Here is a sample of what usually
is the aftermath of an overdone townsite
boom. Ashnola is a.most eligible location for a town and will be the centre of
a large ore producing section when the
railway passes through it, but the futility
of booming a town without transportation is fully demonstrated by. the above
crop of legal cases. Ashnola's position
in the vicinity of Princeton makes it possible to at least receive now some of the
reflected greatness of the latter and some
day it may prove a convenient suburb to
the 'old town' and metropolis of the
Similkameen.

Insurrectionists at Warsaw attacked the

a general mix-up in Europe.

There are one or two cases of measles

The postmaster-general's report for the
past year has been received and shows
the Princeton office is in a healthy condition even if it is an advanced outpost
of civilization. The postmaster's salary
is too smdll for the responsibility and

be made.
RAILROAD CONTRACT
Power from Similkameen Falls
to be Utilized for Railway Building.
Survey   Follows   Myers  Creek from
Midway,   Thence   Northward
Through Similkameen.
Corroborative of information received
through private channels as well as press
despatches there are plans quietly maturing for an onward move ■■ to the Similkameen by the Canadian Pacific and the
Great Northern railways. The accumulation of construction equipment by both
companies at strategic points indicates
an early invasion and vigorous attack
upon the natural obstacles to all railway
building. Engineers Kennedy and Whitcomb of the Great Northern have been
summoned to headquarters at St. Paul for
consultation, presumably to furnish estimates and data for the season's operations. The V.V. & E. is cross-sectioned
west of Midway, the line being now
ready for the contractor beyond. Anarchist mountain. It is stated in Vancouver that the C.P,R. will soon put a party
in the field to locate an air line from
Ruby creek on the inain road to Penticton, there to connect vyith the projected
extension of the Shuswap & Okanagan,
a part of tbe C.P.R. system. By this
route President Shaughnessy hopes to
save nearly five hours in transcontinental
travel by avoiding the huge elbow via
the present main line through Ashcroft
and Kamloops. The proposed line will
touch Princeton, thus making it the converging point of no less than three proposed lines, including the Nicola, Kamloops & Similkameen, the charter for
which has recently been sold to New
York people, one of whom is the mighty
Hill.
J. D. Farrell, western deputy of President Hill, is now at Victoria for the purpose of conferring with the provincial
goverument regarding the route of the
V.V. & E. It is well-known that President Hill wants to obviate the Hope
mountains and the non-paying route
westward of themv If given permission
to deviate down the Skagit into Washington he will forego a provincial bonus
but otherwise he will request a large
bonus. Mr. Farrell will be present during the early part of the session to begin
next Thursday.
The Spokesman-Review says that J.
M. Hagerty, president of the Similka-.

W. J. Snodgrass of Okanagan Falls
was in town last Saturday. He has the
oversight of a construction gang on the
telephone line and has made good progress notwithstanding inclement weather.
Rev J. A. Fowlie, the esteemed Presbyterian missionary here, received a very
pleasant surprise at his home on Fen-
church avenue on Tuesday evening when
a number of ladies and gentlemen took
possession of his domicile and presented
him with all manner of toothsome edibles. The rev. gentleman thanked the
donors from a full heart for the full
larder. A pleasant conversazione and
musicale followed, everybody feeling on
departure that it was good to have been
there.
A number of the fellows in this section
are laying plans to take in the big Portland exhibition next summer. If no
other means are available some will take
passage on the promenade deck of a cay-
use, others will 'hike' and one man
says he can make the distance on a raft
down the Columbia river. It will be the
biggest thing ever known in the west,
"so git you ready and come along."
Bill Scruby arrived back in Princeton
last week. The 'old town' looks good to
him and he has so much faith in it that
he will-invest and wait for the boom.
He has-travelled up and down the west
and half the seas over but has found no
place with the money making prospect
that Princeton has. At present he will
make his headquarters here and probably
embark in housekeeping before many
moons have elapsed.
Wm. Henderson, superintendent of
Dominion telephones, came in from Penticton last Friday going on to Nicola by
special conveyance on Saturday. He
says that 'phones will shortly be provided for patrons here and expects the
whole line to be in operation within a
fortnight.
Copper mountain is receiving considerable attention just now owing to the
jimportant deals recently made with properties in this famed camp. Local parties sre known to have received substantial sums in preliminary payment but as
other deals are contingent upon the final
issue of the first, names and particulars
are withheld. Outside inquiries for mineral properties are keener than formerly
which may be attributed to the more
hopeful outlook for a railway.
Champion Creek Camp.
Editor Star—Sir: Thinking that
many of jour readers would be interested in mining news from Champion
creek I send a brief sketch of the camp
and its surrounding". I made a location
here two years ago and could have made
more but as I was cautious about assays
I thought one was enough, until I had
four assays made which gave values in
gold from $8 to $32 per ton and }4 oz. in
platinum. I crosscutted the ledge about
60 feet and 9 feet deep between trachite
and granite walls. The strike of the
ledge is north-west by south-east and dips
to the west at an angle of 80 degrees.
Only two locations are made as yet to
the north of the Gold-Platinum adjoining which is the Legal Tender. There
are only six locations made as yet on the
ledge, one of which, the Huckleberry,
assays $65 per ton in gold and platinum.
Wm. Brittain has a group of claims
about a half mile to the east of the
Legal Tender, the character of his ore
being diorite and horn blend. He has
crosscutted the ledges in seven different
places, exposing ore bodies 300 feet in
width and sampling about $7 in copper
and $2 in gold. There has not been
much prosprcting done on this belt yet
and I am sure it continues into the rich
mines of Bear creek, a distance of six
miles. There is room for 290 prospectors here for the next three years as you
can go to any point of the compass from
this camp and find rich minerals. The
camp is situated about ten miles west of
Otter Flat on the Tuiameen river and
Champion creek and about 18 miles from
the towering peaks of Summit camp
which look down on the rich mineral deposits as well as the finest fishing and
hunting grounds in B.C. It is the promised land of the prospector. We are
sure to have a 'hot time' here next
spring, so saddle up your horse, come
along and be in the swim. Champion
creek is about 35 miles from Princeton.
Yours truly,
Prospector.
Champion Creek, Jan. 28.
Thursday was woodchuck day. It is
an old tradition that the woodchuck
comes out of his hole on the 2nd day of
February and if he can see his shadow
he will go back for another six week's
snooze, if he. can't see his shadow he
will only take a four week's layoff. The
woodchuck saw his shadow on Thursday
and no doubt he felt the 28 degress below
zero before he went back to his lair.
Invitations are out for a bachelors' ball
to be given in Princeton on Tuesday next,
7th inst. Good music and a fine floor
have been secured and the supper will be
all that palate could desire. Come, and
bring your wives and sweethearts.
The ice harvest is over, so there is no
further use for the giant frost king in
Princeton.

RAILWAY LEGISLATION.
In no part of the province will
the session of the local legislature
which begins next Thursday be of
more interest than to the Similkameen. The long-promised railway
policy of the McBride administration, which was so obtrusively
hawked about during the autumn
political manoeuvres of 1903 by
the hireling press and touters is
at last to be presented to the legislature for full and definite consideration—so the government organs
say. True, this identical policy
so far as it affected the Similkameen, was to have been considered
at a special summer session, but
owing to the drouth, the excessive
Heat and sheer forgetfulness of the
honorable premier summer had sped
on its eternal flight, autumn vanished into an everlasting past, only
cold, crisp winter recalled to the
honorable gentleman his fleeting
pledges made to the house a year
ago as to his "railway policy."
Now, however, Richard is himself
once more. Of a certainty, he says
he will introduce his railway measure—no more promises to stave off
the fatal day of defeat.
It will be  of intense  interest to
the thousands of outside investors
as well as to residents of the Similkameen to observe the subtle influence of monopoly upon the railway
programme of  the premier.     He
must   defend  the   "all-Canadian,"
"all-British" route in patriotic language although, as everyone knows,
there will be small tonnage west of
Hope range and that part of the
route is not  a business proposition.
His insistence on   this route will
have the effect of delaying construction  up  to the time limit of five
years and  a  large bonus is almost
sure to  be demanded by the company building*.    President Hill has
offered  to  build  into the Similkameen free of bonus if he be permitted to reach bis B.C. terminus over
foreign territory.    Considering the
depressed financial condition of the
provincial treasury the Hill proposition will commend itself t||most
economists, besides,   he  is  already
at the doorway of tbe province with
contractors' outfits ready  to build.
The Star would suggest that Mr.
Hill be given permission to go where
he pleases   in  reaching Canadian
tidewater. The main objective
point is the Similkameen with its
boundless mineral resources and
vast revenue producing possibilities.
For those who have invested
capital and labor in this district
further delay in railway construction means loss and privation.
For those who have staked their
all in the country delay means
not only the physical terminus of
their activity ; it means wrecked
hope and death to its offspring-
enterprise. Under the influence of
monopoly it is not improbable another summer railway session may
be promised. Can that subterfuge
be worked again on the Liberals
and Socialists ? Can any promises
be accepted from an administration
which has so flagrantly broken
former vows ? The whole Similkameen is groaning under the blunders and incompetency of past and
present provincial governments regarding a coast-Similkameen railway. The provincial treasury
would be soon recouped for any
subsidy it might grant to any legitimate railway corporation building
into this district. Resources which
are now undeveloped and practically worthless would cause revenue
to flow into the empty exchequer
at Victoria on the completion of a
railway.    Why delay longer ?
The people here, of all political
beliefs are not so insensate as not
to appreciate any genuine effort on
the part of the legislature to have
a railway constructed into the
Similkameen. What the people
require is the vitalizing breeze of
activity and not the deadly and insufferable "hot air" of peanut legislators.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Nelson branch of the Provincial Mining Association has
passed a. resolution declaring that
the 2 per cent, mineral tax is inequitable and urging the government to modify the same so that
wages and the cost of freight and
treatment would be deducted from
the gross value. It seems a most
reasonable suggestion. In no other
industry is taxation levied against
wages.
Our American cousins are the
greatest exhibitors in the world.
Their international exhibitions
are the best of the age and fully
attest Uncle Sam's marvellous powers of productiveness, ingenuity
and organization. Portland, Oregon, is to have a grand exhibition

Lewis and Clark. The exhibition
will represent an expenditure of
$7,500,000, will occupy 402 acres,
and will be open from June i to

them in driving a tunnel at Snanker's
Bend. Power must be ready on April I."
This message gives authority to the rumors in circulation to the effect that the
V.V. & E. is to build into Okanagan
county. in the early spring. At a point
near Similkameen Falls called Snanker's
Bend a tunnel 1800 feet long is to be
driven and it is for that work the power
from the Similkameen Falls plant is to
be used. The contract price for the current is said to be $100 per horse power
per annum. This is the first definite
contract made on the long delayed line
to Princeton and the coast'.
Surveyors have been at work throughout the winter and grade stakes for the
road have been placed. The road will
follow the Myers creek country to the
Okanagan river. At this point the road
will cross the stream and will follow a
northerly course through the Similkameen valley. About a: hundred heavy
work teams are being fed a full allowance
of grain at Oroville by the railroad company, from which the reasonable deduction is made that actual construction will
commence at the earliest possible time.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
A party of Vancouver men interested
with Chas. F. Law in Similkameen fruit
lands was recently at Keremeos. The
close proximity of fruit land to the mineral areas has induced the above gentlemen to invest as a ready and nearby market is assured when development of the
mines goes on. Mr. Law owns some
choice mineral and agricultural properties near Princeton which will yet make
him an opulent man.
F. W. Groves, P.L.S., has gone to Keremeos to survey irrigation ditches for a
company owning the old Coulthard
ranch on which small fruit holdings will
be laid off for sale.
The Star has received from the geological department, Washington, D.C.,
through courtesy of C. E. Barnard, C.E.,
a "Geological Reconnaissance Across the
Cascade Range near the Forty-Ninth
Parallel." The book will be of interest
to explorers and prospectors and will be
loaned to the board of trade for a short
time where it may be consulted. Mr.
Barnard is heartily thauked for this valuable treatise.
Wm. Martin, residing on his ranch
on One-Mile, was taken seriously ill recently while all alone, and but for the
timely arrival of friends he may have
perished. Under the care of Dr. Schon
he is fast regaining health and strength.

HUMOROUS.
Pecuham—You can't eat? Why,
what's the matter with you? Younger—
Well, to be perfldtly frank with you, I'm
so much in love I don't feel like eating
anything, Peckham—Huh ! After you
marry-the girl you'll be the same way,
only it'll be indigestion then.
"I thought yon made a New Year's
resolution not to drink any more." "I
did." "But here you are drinking as
much as ever." "Well, that isn't any
more, is it?"
Beggar—Kind sir, could you help a
victim of the trusts? I am starving.
Citizen—How are the trusts responsible?
Beggan—They shut down the factory
where my wife had a job, sir.
"Paw," asked little Johnny, "what's
a compromise?" "That, my son," replied the wise father, "depends on whom
it's made with. For instance; if I made
a compromise with a business man I go
about half way. But if I make a compromise with your mother, why, I—er—I
go all the way."
Mrs. Canby—Oh, Titus, the baby has
swallowed a hairpin ! Mr. Canby—That's
it; just as I expected. Now you'll want
money to buy some more. It's nothing
bit money, money, money in this house
the whole blessed time.
The wife of an Irish landlord lost her
purse in the Ladies' gallery of the house
of commons. Mrs. Gladstone, who had
been sitting near her, after kindly assisting in the ineffectual search, observed :
"I hope there was net much in it."
"No; it was a nice little purse I had had
for a long time; but, thanks to your husband, there was nothing in it."
Mr. Cityflatt (reading)—The widow of
that 'commuter' who was killed in the
railroad wreck has been awarded sixty
thousand dollars damages. Mrs. City-
tiatt—There—and I've been vainly try-
i ig to induce you to move to the suburbs
for years—you mean thing.
Miss Snowflake—What did Jim Jackson git married for? Miss Washtub—
Lawd only knows! He keeps right on
workin'!
Homer (to cabman)—Say, I want you
to drive down to the depot at noon and
call for my mother-in-law. Take her up
to the house and I'll give you $1. Cabman—Very well, sir. But suppose she
doesn't come? Homer—Oh, then I'll
give you $2.
"Which do you think counts for the
most in life—money or brains?" "Well,"
answered Miss Cayenne, "I see so many
people who manage to get on with so
little of either that I am beginning to
lose my respect for both."
A Boston lady had given her market
man her daily order over the telephone,
and later in the day decided to change it
a little and countermand an order she
had given for some liver. Ringing up
her market man she said : "You remember that I gave an order for a pound of
liver a while ago?" "Yes," was the
reply. "Well, I find I do not need it,
and you need not send it." Before she
could put down the receiver she heard
the market man say to some one in the
store: "Take out Mrs. Blank's liver.
She says she can get along without it."
Cause   and Effect.     Mifkins—Wasn't
Benedict's death  rather sudden and un
expected ? Bifkins—Well, it was sudden,
but not necessarily unexpected.   His wife
had just graduated from a cooking school.
In answer to advertisement for a person
to take care of a church choir and organ:
"Sir: I noticed your advertisement for an
organist and music teacher, either lady or
gentleman. Having been both for several years, I offer you my services.
