BOARD OF TRADE.
I
Ore Specimens   for   Vancouver—The
Telephone Line.
After routine at the Board of Trade
meeting Thursday evening ways and
means were discussed for the defraying
of expenses in collecting and shipping
ore specimens to the Vancouver Tourist
Association. On behalf of the A. E.
Howse Co. W. C. Lyall tendered free
transport for the specimens to Spence's
. Bridge. The secretary will notify the
Tourist Association and R. Marpole of
the shipment and ask that the Board be
relieved of further care and expense on
delivery of specimens at Spence's Bridge.
A vote of thanks was tendered all those;
who had contributed specimens and the
Board apologized to the public for not
carrying out the intention to have a
mineral exhibit at Spokane fair.
President Thomas intimated his readiness to ask L. W. Shatford, M.L.A., on
behalf of the Board, for the use of a portion of the court house building for public assemblages.
The secretary was instructed to communicate with Duncan Ross, Greenwood,
the Liberal candidate, re telephone line.'
In answer to inquiry E. Waterman said
that the V.F.M. Co. had donated two
more lots for school purposes and that
the department of education was ready
to take possession of building on agreed
price and satisfaction of mortgage.
Arthur Hickling, a member of the
Board residing in London, Eng., being
present for the first time addressed the
members in very encouraging terms. He
was pleased to note the robust vitality of
the Board and the evidences of its use
fulness in dealing with matters of public
concern. Compared with other boards of
trade which rarely me&and accomplished
little he thought the Princeton Board was
in a position to afford pointers for them.
He urged continued vigor and in no case
to permit trivial comment of disinterested
ones to affect the present status of the
Board. He cited the Rossland board as
one example of the injurious effects of
lack of zeal and cohesion of members.
Mr. Hickling's remarks were heartily appreciated and endorsed by a vote of
thanks.
; Election of officers, the president's address and reports will claim the attention
of the Board at the first annual meeting
in November next.
Messrs. Fred Buscombe, C.P.R. Superintendent Beasley and Assistant Freight
Agent Kirkpatrick were at Nicola last
week and were shown about the country
as far as Aspen Grove by A. E. Howse.
The two railway men were surprised at
the enormous mineral resources of the
district. They had no" thought that the
Nicola possessed the varied sources of
wealth revealed, to whom up to their visit
it was verily a terra incognita. It pays
even railway men to travel afield.
DOCTRINE IS SOUND
Shall the Trade of the Simil*
kameen go to Spokane
or Vancouver ?
Apathy of the Coast Cities Regarding
Opportunities for Acquiring
Interior Trade.
The frigid indifference so noticeable in
coast people regarding the field for business extension which the Kootenays and
the Similkameen present is past understanding. Not a move nor a hint have
the civic bodies there made toward expediting the building of the railway by the
Great Northern, neither has any systematic effort been made to secure the
trade soon to develop. If they were half
awake they would have a large share of
the smelter business, by so doing trade
would necessarily follow the ore. The
doctrine which certain of the coast papers
preach that the trade of the province
belongs to the people in it is sound, but
there must be effort to divert it from foreign competitive cities. The following
letter to the Province is of interest:
"Editor Province,—Should the ores of
the Similkameen be hauled to the Granby
for treatment as outlined in your issue of
the 23rd inst. the business interests of
Vancouver would miss an opportunity
for trade expansion that they cannot
afford to lose. Only those personally fa--
miliar with the valley of the Similkameen have a conception of the future in
store for the valley, and the prosperity it
will bring to the city that furnishes the
supplies. Shall it be Vancouver or Spokane? With rail connections with the
district all the advantages are with Vancouver ; ample banking capital, supply
houses with large stocks, ocean rates for
shipments of bare ore, and a pleasant
place to rest from labor at the mines.
Spokane recovered from the 1893 panic
with the aid of Rossland money, and the
mines of the Boundary today have much
to do with her prosperity. The Boundary
ores are low grade and must be treated
on the ground. The ore bodies of the
Similkameen are as extensive but high
grade, and the first season of a railway
will see many shippers from those who
have stayed by their prospective wealth,
and this trade will be hard to divert when
once established.
It is for the interest of every resident
of the coast to see that this mineral
wealth should come out on this side of
the range. The building of the C.P.R to
Nicola and Princeton coalfields would
solve the problem of opening up tnis
great country. The V.V. & E. proposes
to build a direct line over the Hope summit to Vancouver, but at the»present time

Roads Need Repairing Before Frost
Sets In—Prospectors Show Fine
Ore Specimens.
Charles E. Will, late of the U.S. boundary survey, has located ten coal claims
ssituated on Nine-Mile creek, near Ashnola. Mr. Will has probably overlooked
the statute which requires publication of
[notices in the local paper as well as the
/official Gazette.
"Jimmy" Orr has determined to make
another trip in search of his lost mine
before winter sets in on the summit of
the Hope mountains. He has retained
Bill Allison and Sam Spencer as escorts
on the expedition. Mr. Orr met another
old Cariboo friend and octogenarian miner in the person of Mr. Bourassa, who is
placer mining on Friday creek. They
had not met before for many long years
but "Jimmy's" still keen vision detected
the familiar form of his tillicum and so
they had along "wawa" about old times,
parting with a 'wee bit drappie' for old acquaintance sake.
Tommy Day was called to the bedside
>of his brother Charles at the Nickel Plate
imine, Hedley, who received serious injuries in an accident on the ore tramway
last week. Latest reports state the pa-
ttientis doing well.
Pete Johnson and Bert Bryant are doing
assessment work on Copper mountain.
The last of the U.S.  boundary survey
party passed through Princeton on Thursday on their way to Loomis, Wash., where
they  will  complete a  small unfinished
^portion of the line and be discharged*
The condition of the road between
here and Granite creek is so bad that
accidents are only averted by the utmost
care. The bridge over China creek has
a hole in the flooring which might pre-
cipate man or beast over its unguarded
side onto the rocks beneath and the
bridge burned last August near Otter Flat
has not yet been replaced. All the
roads are in desperate need of a general
overhauling before frost makes it imprac
ticable. If Mr. Shatford is in the country would he kindly devote a little attention to the needs of his long suffering
and faithful constituents at this end of his
riding?
Ronald Hewat returned from Loomis,
Wash., on Tuesday where he had gone
with a load of U.S. boundary outfit. He
says that Great Northern engineers are
busy driving pegs on the V.V. & E. and
have the line located near Night Hawk,
just south of the international boundary.
It is   also   reported    that   right-of-way
agents are   negotiating  for  land on the
route.
Claude Snowden recently exhibited a
ten-pound specimen of almost pure native
copper taken from J. Bates's claim at
Aspen Grove. It may be seen at the
Jackson hotel cabinet.
C. O. French brought down some.rJGrT:
free milling ore from Granite creek which
is being assayed.
Dan Coutenay has recently uncovered
some very fine ore on the Gold-Platinum
on Champion creek. It contains iron
cubes of a brass-yellow color with quartz
intermixed. This class of ore is usually I
high grade and there are indications of i
a large body.
It is more than a month since the appropriation cf $ 13,500 was,' made for the
telephone line from Nicola to Penticton
since when there has been a deathly
tilence regarding it. After years of waiting it does seem a little like 'rubbing it
in' to wait on some laggard official for a
start on this important work. If prompt
action be taken in this matter there is no
reason why the line should not be in
operation this winter.
Jim Campbell has put up an addition
to his domicile and all he lacks now is
the partner tp make his life one waveless
sea of happiness.
C. R. Philp, of the A. E. Howse Co. at
Nicola, is in town for a few days.
Now the. campaign is on.between the
Liberals and Conservatives. There is no
doubt Sir Wilfrid Laurier will be victorious, for "thrice armed is he whose cause
is just" and has a progressive railway
policy.

$60 worth of hay destroyed by breachy I

The Tulameen/Sunday School.
A Sunday scjhpol has been started the
object of whicnis to maintain some visible sign of civilization and Christianity
in the absence of a missionary. There
can be a great amount of good done by
such simple methods as singing, reading
and conversing upon scriptural subjects
and it is hoped there will be a good attendance of old and young for an hour
each Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Contributions
of literature from friends of the Sunday
school, near or far, are invited, the
object in view being the foundation of a
public library. The "Tuiameen Sunday
school," (that is its name) begins with a
roll of about a dozen scholars, is non-sectarian, and is fortunate in having secured
the services of Miss Edith Dalby as
secretary-treasurer, to whom all communications may be addressed.

A MODEL NEWSPAPER.
The Toronto Globe is the only
party newspaper of any prominence
in Canada which boldly denounces
corrupt political practices whether
of liberal or Conservative parentage. "Though it is the organ of the
liberal party it does not shirk its
duty in earnest denunciation of
.those liberals found guilty of corrupt practices in a provincial election trial at Sault Ste. Marie. It
says : "The Liberals of Ontario
have good reason to be ashamed and
indignant because of the revelations
of political crime made in the election court at Sault Ste. Marie. *
* * That this'nefarious traffic ra
votes, this disgusting collusion with
pluggers and moral debauchees, was
conducted in the interest of the
Liberal candidate and ostensibly for
the sake of the Liberal party make
.it all the more intolerable to intelligent and self-respecting Liberals,
not only in the constituency but
throughout the province. No decent Liberal will defend it, or make
apology for it, or minimize its
crime. All who are responsible for
it deserve not only the utmost punishment provided by law, but also
the unreserved and indignant repudiation of- all who- have voice or
responsibility in the Liberal
party.". ff&-.
When there is a bold and fearless
press throughout the Dominion such
as the Globe, corruption will soon
vanish and the grafter and the parasite will have disappeared from the
the election scene. All honor and
power to editor Macdonald of the
Globe in his crusade against evil
within the camp. The mote in the
Tory eye can only be effectually removed by a clarified vision of those
who seek its removal. Every Liberal in the Similkameen will say
aye to the efforts of the Globe in
cleansing the party of corruption-
ists. And the challenge goes out
now to the Conservative press in
this province and the Dominion to
cleanse their Augean stable, the
accumulated vice in which is so
obnoxious as to cause honest men
a tremor lest the whole party become contaminated. Is there one
newspaper in the Conservative camp
which dares follow in the footsteps
of the Globe and thus elevate the
drooping  standard of political mo
rality in Canada ? The most abject
partizan cannot detiy the necessity
for reform and it remains for the
Tory press to carry out their professions for purity of elections in
the present campaign.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Remember November 3rd. _ That
is the date of the Dominion general
elections. Owing to the vast extent of the riding of Yale-Cariboo
election day has always been and is
now postponed to a date yet to be
set after the general elections—it
will probably be in early December.
The dominating feature of the camj-
paign is the Grand Trunk Pacific
transcontinental railway. It is not
conceivable that any considerable:
number of the electors of the Sim-f
ilkameen will oppose the G.T.P;
They know only too well the need
of a railway in this district, hence,'
their support of and sympathy with
the G.T.P. is a matter of reason
and fellow feeling combined.
The Boundary Creek' Times, of
Greenwood, recently began its ninth
year of usefulness and congratu-:
lates itself that all its competitors
have passed in their checks and
that the sheriff has never paid it an
official call. Lucky Times ! Its co-
temporary in the Similkameen has
never died, but what is far more,
agonizing it is now passing through
a period of living death, with only
its 'eyebrows' on which to dangle
over a yawning grave. What a
warning to the progenitors of unborn 'rags' in the wireless and trackless Similkameen ! Happy Times !
Its columns are bright and fresh
with news and advertisements without either of which it must have
long since .passed to that bourne
from whence no newspaper, nor
even the 'devil' may return. Now,
as if to add fame to prosperity editor Ross is in the field for political
honors, and be is certain to win
them. He has a thorough acquaintance with the needs of the Similkameen and has all that Scotch tenacity of purpose which enables him
to fetch what he goes for no matter
what the obstacles maybe. The
voice of one in the wilderness is
wafted on ethereal wings in congratulations to editor and Times.
Good Times !       i^M^M

the permanent official at Kamloops assizes
but he also as a peace officer acts promptly
in case of disturbance. He arrested a
newcomer on Tuesday who had taken
an overdose of ''old rye" and broke a
window in the A. E. Howse Co's store.
Soon after the prisoner's lodgment in the
'skookum' bouse smoke was observed
issuing from it which proved to be the
work of the inebriate, he having started
a bonfire with his blankets. The fire was
put out before it did serious damage. On
arraignment before magistrates Waterman and Groves prisoner gave the name
Walter Conville and was fined #22. The
trial magistrate said: "He thought this a
fitting opportunity to bring to the knowledge of the Princeton people the law
upou the subject of supplying, .liquor to
intoxicated people. The statute reads:
jj&ItCsball be unlawful for any licensed or
other person to furnish any liquor to an
intoxicated person, and anyone who violates this section shall be liable, on summary conviction, to a penalty of not less
than CTlSB^ydollffBB sior more than fifty
dollars—T891, c. 21, s. 4.'."

Olivia—Is it true, Edith, that Larker
kissed you before he picked you up in
that runaway? Edith—Yes, dear; you
know he is studying to be a doctor and
that was first aid to the injured.
Marcil Prevost, the French novelist,
was entertaining a certain bishop at dinner. He tells the story himself: "My
butler, an elderly man, had brought in
from a friend's house an inexperienced
"lad to help him in the dining room, and
it seems that this lad, during the laying
of the cloth, annoyed the butler beyond
endurance with question'slas^to his duties.
'How shall I hold the plates ?' 'Do I
serve< ihe dish|sr jp^rthj' fight or on the
left sicie of the guests?' 'Must the
bishop be served first or second?' So he
continued interminably, and at last the
impatient butler said: 'All you will need
to do is to stand behind the bishop's
jchair, and-.-.whenever his lordship puts
down his glass you must reach over and
wipe his mouth with a napkin.' That,
as the butler expected, silenced his assistant. But the young man actually took
the butler's ironical re'markffor a serious
order. As soon as dinner began he stationed himself behind the bishop, waited
until his lordship had drunk and put
down his glass, and then, as deliberately
as his nervousness would permit, he
opened out a large napkin and wiped the
dignified old gentleman's mouth. Imagine my horror." i
"What kind of a letter did your husband write when he was away?" "He
started, 'My Precious Treasure,' and ended by sending 'love.'" "How did you
.answer?" "I started with 'My Precious
Treasurer,' and ended with 'Send me ten
'dollars.'" j#
"It was on a train going from New
York to Washington," said Albert Barnes
of Toledo. "Among the passengers was
a newly married couple, who made themselves known as such to so great an extent that the occupants of the car began
to make sarcastic remarks about them.
The bride and groom stood the remarks
for some time, but finally the latter, who
Mtfas a man of tremendous size, broke out
in the following language at his tormentors : * Yes, .we're married—just married.
We are going ioo miles farther, and are
going to spoon all the way. If you don't
like it you can get out and walk. She's
my violet and I'm her sheltering oak!'
During the remainder of the journey this
couple were left in peace."
Mrs. New—Yes, most of the servant
girls are as independent and as impudent
as they can be. Now, I believe^Js^pest

Conservatives Support Government.
The Laurier government, in theforth-
cotning contest, is going to get a very
considerable support from Conservatives
who are pleased with its policy. The
Grand Trunk Pacific proposition is of
course the issue that is attracting most
support of this character, but its action
in other matters is also benefitting the
government. Recently Mr, Tasse, a well
known business man of Montreal and
widely known throughout the west, declared his intention to support Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Geo. E. Tuckett, head of
the George E. Tuckett & Sons Co. of
Hamilton, said to a reporter : "You may
say that I am a Tory, but I'm going to
support the government through thick
and thin. Thousands of Conservatives
whose names will never get into print are
preparing to follow the examples of Mr.
Tasse and Mr. Tuckett. Business men
who, though allied to the Conservative
party, are not taking an active part in
politics, know very well that the best interests of the country will be served by
five years more of Liberal administration
and the building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific. Not all, but a very considerable
proportion of them, will drop their ballots at the next election for the Liberal
candidates. This is no time for a change
of government.—Winnipeg Free Press.
Not a Strong Opposition.
There is one consideration in favor of
an election this year that should not be
overlooked. The country has had quite
enough of the Conservative opposition
as at present constituted. Events of the
ten months' session of 1903 and the six
months' session of 1904 have quite satisfied the public that the opposition is in
urgent need of new blood. Were an
election to be held this fall it is quite
possible that a discriminating electorate
might kill off (politically, of course,
some of the more hopeless Conservative
bores and give Mr. Borden a few capable
lieutenants who would be of some service
in discharging the very necessary functions of an opposition. Think of a reformed house of commons minus the raucous voice of Dr. Sproule; the smooth,
unending flow of talk from Clancy; the
clownish coarseness of Rufus Pope; the
autobiographical eulogies of Sam Hugh s
and the martial declarations of S. E.
Gourley! How pleased the country
would be! How grateful Mr. Borden!
With capable lieutenants about him, Mr.
Borden might possibly during the next
five years of opposition make some progress towards the premiership. But he
can never hope to be charged with the
responsibilities of office while men of the
Sproule-Clancy calibre surround hini.
The present opposition, leaving Mr. Borden aside, is a dead level of mediocrity,
and Mr. Borden himself does not come
off very well in comparison with Sir Wilfrid Laurier.—Rossland Miner.
