Railway Rumblings.
Railway prospects brighten as the days
roll by. Before another week has elapsed
it is expected that contracts will have
been let. The movements of engineets
and contractors indicate that tenders and
estimates are well on in preparation.
From J. D. "Farrell, President Hill's
western representative, the announcement is made that re-surveys are being
carried on with the view of securing the
most favorable grades, and that: "We
expect the definite route will be shortly
announced and that the line will be practically completed this year." Chief En
gineer Kennedy was in Princeton Friday
bat he is a man of action and of few
words, so nothing could be learned from
him.
The presence of W. C. McLean in
Princeton and his confidential partner
J. McDonald lends color to the report in
a Kamloops paper that they are looking
over the route of the C.P.R. with a view
to future contracts. Mr. McLean has
built many miles of road for the C.P R.
The real- significance of his mission here
as a railway builder will not be known
for a week or so but enough has tran
spired in the way of business transactions
to place C.P.R. construction beyond the
pale of mere conjecture.
Trappers Had Good Luck.
H. Olin and Paul Johnson, trappers,
arrived in town recently from their winter haunts on the1 Hope range and Roche
river. They have had a successful season's catch of fur which they were unable to remove until the snow goes, thus
•making better footing for their pack
horses. Snow on Hope summit was only
about 7 feet deep this winter; in former
years it was 20, the comparison showing
a light snowfall this season. The depth
of snow on Hope summit on the 19th
was 4 feet, the opening of the Hope trail
to travel would thus appear to be earlier
this season if no cold weather intervened
at that altitude. During the winter the
trappers travelled on skis, some davs covering as many as 30 miles along their trap
line. They returned to their headquarters on Thursday.
Anglican Religious Services.
Ven. Dr. Pentreath, archdeacon of Columbia, will conduct services, Sunday
(tomorrow) in the court house at 11 a.m.
and 7:30 p.m The archdeacon is superintendent of Anglican missions in the
diocese of New Westminster. During his
stay he will organize a church of Eng
1 aid parish. The following Sunday he
will preach in Hedley and organize the
church there. Both places are within
the limits of the diocese of New Westminster. It is expected that a resident
clergyman will shortly be placed in the
district. The rite of christening will be
observed at the morning service tomorrow.
SUNSET TO DEVELOP
Historic  Property   Undergoes
Minute  Inspection and
Close Analysis.
$50,000 will be  Spent in Development—Other   Properties  are
Inquired About.
The new Sunset people who have been
examining their property on Copper
mountain during the past week came
down on Monday leaving experts Mem-
man, Kellerschon and Schneider to continue researches and make thorough investigation. F. L. Underwood, president
of the B.C. Copper Co., W. H. Thomas,
Fred Keefer and W. Anderson were the
returning party and left for Greenwood
on Tuesday. Mr. Underwood was pleased
with all that he saw, the immensity of
ore on the mountain being an uncommon
revelation to him Within the next fifteen months it is expected that $50,000
will be spent in developing the propert}'.
A five-drill compressor will be installed
as soon as possible.
The Sunset group consists of eleven
mine:al claims which constitute a mineral kingdom within themselves R. AJ
Brown first located the Sunset in 1888
since when it has had its ups and downs
but at last its merits are being recognized
and it will undoubtedly justify all that
has been said iu praise of it. Other properties in the vicinity of the Sunset are
possessed of its characteristics and are
being enquired after by investors." That
Copper mountain will in a year or two
resound with great mining works is no
idle dream ;■ the echoing sounds of blast
and drill already making a welcome realization of hopes assured.
Similkameen Valley Coal Company.
The annual meeting of the Similkameen Valley Coal Co. was held in Nelson r-cently. President Wilson made a
■statement that the total liabilities were
under $4,000, of which about $3,500 represented principal and interest due to W.
C. McLean under his mortgage. The
assets consisted of 350 acres of crown-
granted land, including the Ashnola
townsite; 1,980 acres of coal lands under
lease, a saw and planing mill, a half interest in a drilling outfit and a mortgage
on a brewery. The cash realization of
of all the property would more than meet
the liabilities. There was also an unsatisfied judgment against the dismissed
manager, D. R. Young, for several hundred dollars. It was ordered that 100,000
shares of the 400,000 still remaining in
the treasnn' be issued at 10 cents for the
purpose of paying off the mortgage and
other liabilities. W. Blakemore was
elected president aud R. J. Steel secretary.

R. F. Tolmie, deputy minister of mines,
Victoria, arrived in town Wednesday and
registered at the Hotel Jackson. Mr.
Tolmie is-well qualified to fill the position he occupies having served an apprenticeship in various mining official
capacities throughout the province and
was very popular aa mining recorder at
Nelson. As commissioner for the court
of inquiry here he conducted it with eminent fairness and a real desire to do justice to all concerned. This is his first

in a camp and attracts many strangers to
the country.
Banking Facilities at Hedley.
As will be observed by reference to advertisement on third page the bank of
British North America has opened a
branch at Hedley under the management
of G. H. Winter. The large pay roll at
Hedley together with the increasing volume of commercial transactions there
in connection with mining have long
made the deficiency of a bank keenly
felt. Its advent will be appreciated by
the whole business community of the
Similkameen, the inconvenience of long
distance banking being thus overcome.
This bank is one of the safest institutions
in existence and is founded on a long
and honorable career.

PULL TOGETHER.
The great influx of capital and
people into the Similkameen is the
natural sequel of railway construction. Towns and camps will spring
up in places unsusceptible and the
old established ones will take on
new life and energy. So long as
legitimate means are employed to
induce investment there will be a
steady march of progress and accumulation of wealth. If, however,
an abnormal rivalry and booming
methods are brought into play between the various interests a reaction will inevitably set in from
which there must be slow recovery.
That is the history in brief of bourn
towns. It should be the aim of all
who seriously desire to benefit by
the present revival to turn over as
much of their property as possible
in short time thus permitting and
^encouraging many persons to become interested. Nothing is so
detrimental as the standstill attitude of those who try to thrive on
the energy of others.
There would   not   be  a vacant
lot  in  the  business centre of any
rising   town  if   everyone   owning
real estate  there  were actuated by
the broad principle of improving it
for the  sake of the town and thus
immeasurably    benefitting   himself
more than by  waiting until others
improved    their   property   around
his.    The business of a whole street
has been known to be shifted to another by the waiting policy of those
who were either too  timid to build
or wanted to profit on tbe enhanced
value given by their more progressive  neighbors.    Princeton   has not
yet  reached  the  building stage in
its  now  promising  existence, but,
when  soon   it   must  come,   every
available    business   lot  should  be
made  to   do  its  duty in having a
building  upon   it.    If this be done
nothing can shift  the centre or disturb the foundation already laid for
ja large and progressive city,
fflttjfinceton  being  the oldest town
in   the  Similkameen  and  government  headquarters for the district,
it has  a  great  lead over any competitors.     Other   towns    will,    of
course,   arise   as   the  natural outcome  of   general   prosperity.    Let
" there be generous rivalry in all that
pertains  to   the  development  and
advancement of the Similkameen,
in doing this there is no necessity
for disparaging the prospects of a
neighboring and possibly a competing town. The knocker is an
abomination and a public nuisance.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is a great pity that one of the
coast cities, at least, of this province does not wake up to the im-
1 ortance of having a mining exchange. Mining men congregate
where mining intelligence is readily
procured. They want to be in
touch with the element which is
congenial to their business tastes
and unless there is something to
attract them in numbers they go
elsewhere. If there were mining
and mineral attractions at, say Vancouver, there would be no difficulty
in weaning away from certain
cities of the neighboring states the
large hotel and other trade which
they now receive from B.C. There
is also an attractiveness about a sea
coast city which an inland one does
not possess as a resort.
J. A. Macdonald, Liberal leader
in the local legislature, describes
the recent session as follows : "I
doubt it there ever was a session of
parliament more barren of results
than the one just closed. In the
coast and island cities as well as in
the interior there is a feeling of intense disappointment and disgust
even among the government's most
ardent adherents. After the promises made and so often repeated
that the government would deal
with the railway situation in a
comprehensive measure, and especially after the government's admission of the urgency of action
when the premier promised a summer session last year, everybody
felt sure that the session just closed
would be notable for its work in
promoting railway construction in
those districts which need them
most. Instead of coming down to
the house with a railway policy the
government spent the whole session
backing and filling ; pulled this way
and that by the band of railway
promoters which filled the lobbies
and finally had to confess that it
could formulate no policy and that
for another year a direct line to the
coast from Kootenay was doomed.

of actual settlers who require the timber
for their own use.
Settlers and others may also obtain permits to cut up to 100 cords of wood for
sale without competition.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
His Courage Failed.
Editor Star—Sir:   A   hero stepped
into local fame  a short time ago at Otter
Flat.    There will   be no heraldic decora
tion, and  his  name will not embellish a
page in his  country's history.    The gov
eminent will   not   be asked to grant Wm
a pension, but we, the people of this upper  country   (somewhat  given    to hero
worship) will see that he is clothed with
a leather  medal.    The  other  day when
the   Terrible  Swede  threatened   to take
the  Otter  Flat Hotel   by  force of arms,
Slinky Jim was a guest and being a good
deal of a swashbuckler he  told the proprietor  not  to  fear  as he would capture
the insurgent and   bring him  into camp.
With that intent he borrowed a gun from
old Scotty.    It was a trusty weapon, ancient  it  is true, seeing that one of Scot-
ty's   ancestors  carried   it at the battle of
"Bothwell   Brig,"  and  it  was, perhaps,
better suited for clubbing than shooting
Jim walked the floor, puffing himself up
like a harvest toad, and tooting his horn.
But  when  the  Terrible approached and
opened fire,   poor Jim, like "Bob Acres*'
allowed   his  courage  to  ooze out of hit
finger  ends,   dropped   on  all fours and
made  a  clean   break   through   the back
door  for  the  brush   on the bank of the
Otter and hid  himself in an old muskrat
house.    When   the   trouble was over and
Jim   had   assumed   his  normal  size the
muskrat den had to be   broken up to gtt
him out.    He  will   live  to fight another
day.    What  is agitating the public n:i;;d
up here   is  how  small a hole a man can
crawl into in the hour of danger.
Otter Flat, April 19 Miner
