Nature has Endowed Similkameen with Vast Riches.
None So Blind to Reason as those who Stubbornly Resist It.
Having all the Natural Resources for Making the People Prosperous it is almost Criminal for Governments  to Passively Witness the Similkameen Made the Plaything of Rival and Procrastinating Railway Corporations—United Effort of the People and Legislators Can End it.'

RAILWAY RUMBLINGS1
Coal and Other Minerals are!
Eagerly Sought by Nelson   (
Mining Men.
Railway Contractors in the Boundary
Move Stock Westward for the
Spring's Work.
W. J. Wilson, of the firm of P. Burns
& Co., butchers, mine owners and general speculators, accompanied by A.
Sharp, M.E., and F. B. Burns was in
town Monday having driven from Greenwood in a conveyance. They went to
Boulder creek to examine* a gold proposition which Mr. Burns had the foresight
to secure a few years ago. It is a mine
ready to ship as soon as the railway is
built. The party also restaked some
2,600 acres of coal lands on Nine-mile
creek. From their hurried manner it
was evident their business was of great
moment and the securing of the coal
land would seem to justify any amount
of haste, as it is considered very valuable. Mr. Wilson stales that there is no
doubt about railway construction in the
spring. He thinks Princeton an ideal
townsite and may possibly invest here in
a business site. Mr. Wilson is the Co.
in the firm, which owns 37 retail butcher
shops in B,C. and have mines extending
from Mexico to Kootenay and the Similkameen. While it seems somewhat incongruous in a business which deals in
ore and sausages yet it is wealth producing, for the P. Burns Co. are millionaires and have an honorable reputation.
Mr. Wilson states that railway engineers
are still working on Anarchist mountain
to find an easier grade.
J. W. Stewart's work horses, which
were used in the construction of the
Great Northern railway between Grand
Forks and Phoenix are being wintered
on Sidley mountain. Forty head were
taken there last week and the balance
will go into winter quarters as soon as
work is fully completed. The plant used
in the construction of the road will aiso
be left in the Boundary during the
winter months. It is expected that in
early spring the Great Northern will begin active construction from Midway
westward and for this reason the plant
used in the Boundary this year will remain here, and the heavy expense of
moving the outfit will thus be saved.
S. M. Martin of Grand Forks has been
awarded the contract to erect all station
and other buildings on the Great Northern now building in the Boundary district. The contract calls for the erection
of eighteen different buildings, the largest of which will be the station at Phoenix.
Pat Welch and Burns & Jordan rail
way contractors, in the Boundary have
sent out about 80 head of horses and 150
tons of hay were purchased to winter the
stock at Anarchist mountain. The outfit
will be handy to construction whenever
the order is given to proceed with the
work in the Similkameen.
Johnson & Brandt, who have had an
extensive contract, are breaking up camp
at Oro Denoro and will move their plant
westward from Midway.
Night work has been started on unfinished portions of construction in order
to keep out of the way of tracklayers
who are expected to eat their Christmas
dinner in Phoenix.
The Board of Trade.
At the board of trade meeting on Thurs
day evening, President Groves in the
chair, after reading and adoption of min
utes of previous session and enrolling
new members, discussed motion re sub-
agency of land department in Princeton.
The necessity for it was pointed out to
obviate entanglements aud delays in connection with applications and registra
tions of land. The secretary stated that
he was already in communication with
the government on the subject. It was
decided to remain in present board of
trade rooms for the winter. Treasurer
Cowan made a report that the board was
in the comforting condition of possessing
a surplus and new members were being
a Ided. Votes of thanks were tendered
R. Marpole, C.P.R. superintendent, and
A. F. Howse for franking the ore specimens to Vancouver.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Railway Policy Buried at the
Last Session will Soon
be Exhumed.
Lawyers Looking this Way—Assessment Work—Princeton Coal
has Preference.
The Election Returns.
The election returns show that the
riding of Yale-Cariboo has returned Mr.
Ross, the Liberal candidate, by about 200
majority and Kootenay has elected Mr.
Galliher by about 800, causing both Socialists, Mills and Barker, to lose their
deposits of $200 each. The vote in this
whole constituency was small, nearly
1000 less than it would have been had
every elector voted. The Liberal vote is
700 short of the returns sent in by Liberal canvassers and Mr. Burrell's vote is
short 100 thus showing that the riding is
overwhelmingly Grit. Too many took
it for granted that Mr. Ross was a winner
or the majority would have been trebled.
The rehearsals by the young people,
under the training of Mrs. Lyall and
Miss Dalby, are well attended and give
promise of affording high class entertainment and amusement for all who attend the Christmas tree. A message from
Santa Claus states that beyond a small
frog in his throat he is well and happy
and hopes his beloved children are all
well and having good fun. He thinks
he will travel this year on wheels as the
snow is scant and his reindeer have not
come down from the mountain summits
as yet.
The local legislature, according to
present plans of the government, will
meet about January 20th. It will be deferred till a later date if attorney-general
Wilson is not back from England then.
The government expects to have a railway policy to present to the house, also a
plan for a commission to go into the assessment bills.
Willerson & Johnson are doing assessment work at Copper mountain on the
Smuggler and Johnson in Combination
camp. The work consists chiefly in deepening the shaft. Every assessment done
in the Combination camp and in fact on
the whole of Copper mountain, adds to
the already abundant proof of the immense gold-copper deposits there, hence
the benefit arising from continuous operations in any camp.
E. F. Voigt came home on Wednesday
from a trip to the coast.
T. A. Connolly has laid in his supplies
(for the winter and will continue development  work   on  his   mineral  properties
near Otter Flat.
Illustrating the salubrious climate that
prevails in  the Similkameen Jim Snow-
vden dug "spuds" on the first day of December, thus  showing  that frost has not
penetrated the ground to any depth.
Frequent shipments of coal are made
.from the V.F.M. Co's mine here to Pen-
Jticton. The consignments, though ne-
'cessarily small, owing to cost of wagon
(transportation, indicates the fuel value of
the coal here when other coal can be laid
(down at Penticton much cheaper.
Word has been received that a qualified medical gentleman of some years
experience is about to remove to Princeton.
Two communications from lawyers
have been recently received by citizens
inquiring as to professional inducements
in Princeton. There is a splendid opportunity for an energetic man to lay the
foundation of a large and lucrative future
practice here.
The first of the shooting matches was
held on Thursday and was fairly well
attended. Messrs. Macfarlane, Groves
and Waterman were winners. Tnere will
be another match next Thursday and
everybody is welcome to try their luck.
The Dominion parliament has been
summoned to meet on January nth.
Santa Claus has written to the A. E.
Howse Co.   that   he   will be pleased to
make his headquarters with this old establishment as it keeps Christmas presents of all kinds for the lads and lassies
and grownups too.    Come and see.
Bert Bryant is  doing assessment work
on Reco fraction on Copper mountain.
Former Princetonian Wedded.
The following taken from the Brant-
ford Expositor of Nov. 10 will be read
with interest by friends and acquaintances of the groom here, in the Boundary
and at Rossland : "On Wednesday afternoon a quiet event was solemnized at
" 'Bieldv Knowes,' " the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. Carlyle, when their eldest
daughter, Helen, was united in marriage
to James Hislop, C.E., formerly of this
county, but recently of the Grand Trunk
Pacific at Edmonton, Alberta. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. Anderson, of St. Andrew's. The bride, who
was given away by her father, was daintily gowned in white and carried a shower
bouquet of white roses. She was attended
by her sister, and A. Hislop, M.P.P., supported the groom. Many valuable presents were received. After an elegant dejeuner Mr. and Mrs. Hislop left on a wedding tour for Montreal and eastern points
after which they will make their home in
the west." The Star unites with others
in wishing the happy couple a long and
prosperous married life.
Presbyterian Missionary.
Rev. A. J. Fowlie arrived in town last
Saturday to take up the work of an ordained missionary in the Similkameen
for the Presbyterian church.' His service
in the school house last Sunday was well
attended and he made a Very favorable
impression on his hearers. Where his
permanent location will be is not at present known but it is hoped that he will
reside in Princeton. His district extends
to Fairview and he is at present looking
over the field with a view to make a
schedule of services and become acquainted with the people. Mr. Fowlie
is a graduate of Princeton, N.J., theological college and was also a student at
Queen's, Kingston.
The Telephone Line.
The telephone line between Princeton
and Hedley is finished with pole setting
and is now ready for the wire hangers.
Foremen Ross and Murphy have made
it their business to have the work done
well and speedily before heavy frost occurred. From Hedley to Keremeos foreman Macdonald will be done in advance
of the wirefnen and foreman Snodgrass
has the Okanagan Falls branch nearly
complete. The wire in bulk is being distributed from both ends. There is little
doubt that New Year greetings will'be
exchanged over the wire, an innovation
which will be gratefully appreciated by
the inhabitants of this great lone district.   Hello I

THE PRESS.
Dr. Goldwin  Smith  has on several occasions  by his writings and
in his addresses to newspaper men,
discussed     the    growing    danger
threatening  public  life  and public
interest    through    the   control   of
newspapers  passing into the hands
of railway and  other corporations.
The power of the press in stimulating and directing public opinion on
great  public   issues  is  admittedly
great.     The  influences   behind   a
newspaper    largely   determine   its
potency  for  good  or bad.    If any
newspaper has to trim  its editorial
sails to catch the business breeze of
this or that  corporation or individual its influence is gone and its hold
on the respect and confidence of its
readers  is  slender indeed.    When
a newspaper is so poverty stricken
that  it   must  shape  its  course   to
.suit the whims of some controlling
-influence    behind    the   scenes  its
career of public  usefulness is at ah
end and its editorials are as so much
hogwash.    Unfortunately too many
newspapers in British Columbia are
dominated by the exigencies of the
purse  and  the railways make  an
easy  prey  of them.     Hence   it  is
that the  coast  papers dare not put
up  a  strenuous  fight  for a direct
coast to Kootenay  railway.    Capital has secured such control of them
that they are either dumb or open-
mouthed as the button is pressed.
The approaching sessions of both
federal and provincial houses will
be what is termed 'railway sessions'
not 'summer sessions.' Both members representing the Similkameen
will require to be fortified with all
the public sentiment and all the influence available to stem adverse
rival intrigues of political tricksters
and lobbyists. Everything depends
on the harmony and unity of the
citizens of the various towns and
the district generally. If a house
divided against itself cannot stand
it is equally true that a divided
community cannot. To preserve
that harmony necessary to success
every person will have to sacrifice
something of pride, selfishness and
narrowness, for no great achievement was ever made where these
noxious weeds were allowed to
grow.
A  newspaper  dominated by the
monopolist or   corporation whose
interests are opposed to the interests of the public is a real danger
and against it every intelligent man
should set his face. On the other
hand, the newspaper that fights the
battle of the people and is loyal
to the community, no matter what
its politics," nor what its shortcomings or mistakes may be in minor
matters, should have the heart}'
support of all.

Government ownership   of telephones and telegraphs will receive
the  attention  of Dominion legislators  as  foreshadowed  by the premier in a  campaign speech.    It is
a question on which there ought to

cheapest and most convenient means
of communication   tacilitates  business and enlarges the field for transaction  in  every  walk  of life.    In

Anxious Inquirer—Is it true that for
fifteen shillings I can insure my house for
^a thousand pounds? Clerk—Quite true
i madam, if your house burns down we
pay you a thousand pounds. Anxious
Inquirer—And do you make any inquiries as to how the fire originated ? Clerk
—Certainly. We make the most careful
inquiries. Anxious Inquirer—Ah ! I
thought there was a catch in it somewhere.
Practically all the electors in the Tenth
electoral district in New York city are
Hebrews or Germans. One of the exceptions, somewhat "under the weather,"
called at the place of registry and was
asked his name. "Pathrick O'Hooli-
gan," said he. "What floor do you live
on?" "On the top, begorra, where the
'"'Irish ought to be. Sure, d'ye think I'd
be afther livin' under a Dootchman ?"
"Are you a naturalized citizen " asked
the chairman. Whereupon Pat with a
quick flash of indignation, came back
with the answer : "Natural citizen, is it
ye want to know ? Begorra, do Oi look
loike a freak ?"
"Ah!" she sighed, as they stood on the
wooden bridge watching the moon rise
over Wolf creek, "I could sit and gaze at
the moon for hours." "Would I were
the man in it," said the fellow with one
hand on the railing. "Then I would
need a powerful telescope to bring you as
near as possible," she said, as she gently
reclined her head upon his ample shoulder.
Cox—Do you believe people can tell
fortunes by cards? Box—No; but I'm
-dead certain  they can lose fortunes that
s way.
Teacher—Suppose your father gave
your mother twenty dollars and then
took five dollars back again. What would
that make? Tommy—A.11 kinds of trouble.
Holden—Both of your children are
getting along. They'll soon have to decide upon their life careers. Belden—
Oh, that's all settled long ago, Tom has
made up his mind to be a retired millionaire, and Henrietta thinks she is cut out
for a rich widow.
Father (who has been called upon in
the city and asked for his daughter's
hand)—Louise, do you know what a sol
emn thing it is to be married ? Louise—
Oh, yes, pa, but it is a good deal more
solemn being single.

Australian Railways Pay Now.
Th'omas Tait',"formerly superlhTehd'eiit"
of transportation for the C.P.R., who
assumed control of the government railways in the state of Victoria, Australia,
in June, 1903, has at length successfully
demonstrated that the Victoria railways
can be self-sustaining, and for the first
time in fifteen years the railways in'question have paid their way, there b^ng a
surplus of ^510 at the end of the financial year in place of a deficit as in'pre-
ceding years.
In 1900 the deficit was ^SovSo'8, in
rooi-2 it was ^163,227, and'in 1902-3It
amounted to ^304,694. The surplus-this
year is a small onebut when the previous years' records are considered it Will
be'1 readily seen what a hard task'Mr.
Tait has accomplished in the short time
hehas been in charge. This is especiMis
the case when it is mentioned tliaWhei

The production of bituminous coal in
th£ United States last year was 285,000,-

niversary of,the bittfi of August Borsig,
ofjGermany.. Beginning as a carpenter,
he', as a man learned: drawing and mechanics in a trade school; became foreman of a foundry ; started one himself;
developed it into a machine shop ; turned
out, his first loc6thotive 1^1841 and%iS

A new type of fuel has been devised by
two gas engineers of Southend:, England,
the^ outcome of several years' patient in
.vesugation and .experiments. The fuel
is manufactured from what has hitherto
been considered a wdste product of chemical manufaature. This fuel is intended,
to supplant the asbestos or fire clay balls
which are at present utilized in gas stove
stove fires. It absorbs the blue Bunsen
flame, which at present escapes, and converts it into heat.
A remarkable clock has been made by
one Christian Martin, who lived in the
Black Forest; Germany. . On the face
may be read the seconds, the minutjfe,
the hours, the days, the weeks, the
months, the fjbur seasons, and the common aud leap,years. Harmonious music
accompanies ithe movement of each object. Situated in the center of the front
is {-he time-dial or clock-face proper. An
angel at th$ ibottom of the central section tell.: off'tjie minutes on a gong. In
the central frame of the third section are
two figures of which one strikes the quarters, while the other, with the finger of
her right hand, points to the quarter just
struck, providing in this way a visible as
well as audiblfe signal. The lowest frame
of the same section displays successively
the figures of an infant, a^ youth, a full
grown tnan, and a persori of ripe old age,
corresponding with the quarter struck,
intending thus to exemplify the four*&ge|s
instead of the time-honore\ljgse$eji ages
of man's life. D?ath, in the third frame
of the fifth section, sounds the full hour.
As soon;as the hour is struck, the twelve
apostles appear in an oval frame just
above the clbck-fa'ce, one after the Other,
each salutingjChrist, who is placed in the
frame directly above them, and receiving
a blessing frojtnHim. After playing their
part they withdraw from view, and a
cherub guards the doorway. The day of
the  month  is shown  on the dial in the
second space of the third section. __The
maker computed the leap years up to
the year 99,999.
