TWO RAILWAYS RACE
Great Northern and C. P. R.
Preparing for Simultaneous Invasion.
Actions are Suited to Words, which
Makes the Railway Problem
More Hopeful.
From!'many sources there are reports
which are confirmative of the general
opinion that the Great Northern will build
its road into the Similkameen this year
and independent of local legislation.
Advices received from a gentleman who
interviewed President Hill in New York
are to the effect that the road will be
built, for an "absolute certainty," this
year, and that it will be in Princeton this
time next year.
A report has been in circulation that
100 miles of contract had been let west of
Midway, but neither the source nor authenticity of it could be traced.
A letter received from the cattle buyer'
for P. Purns & Co., a brother of C. B.
Harris, states that he will be in the Similkameen this spring to make purchases.
His firm provides beef for the Great
Northern contractors.
The C.P.R. is making active preparations to build from Spence's Bridge to
Midway and there is every probability of
a race between the two great rivals.
HEDLEY POINTERS.
Sparklets   from   this   Rich Mining
Centre—Sunday Closing1.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
Chief of Police Haynes is enforcing the
Sunday closing law and drinks are scarce
on that day in consequence.
The gentleman with a military title who
writes the little chunks of think for the
Gazette is greatly agitated over the establishment of a school of mines at Princeton. Alljfthe mining magazines and influential papers of Canada favor this
school of mines, but now, alas and alack
it's all off with this educational institution for the Hedley Gazette says it must
not be built.
A military man who has been a mining reporter,, a road boss, and is now a
justice of the peace, license commissioner
and would gladly accept any other office
in the gift of the first Conservative government B.C. ever had, seems greatly put
out over the change in postmastership at
Princeton, but then, what the 'Maj.' says
won't do any harm for one can walk outside of that paper's circulation in two
minutes and a half.
The Hedley Gazette is the greatest
newspaper printed between Bradshaw's
and the saw mill. It recently stated that
A. E. Howse was hobnobbing with So
cialists at Victoria. This was not intended that way but meant to convey the idea
that he would not associate with the la-
boring'class. Old Jack Thibbs, who has
resided in the province for 50 years, said,
after reading the article, that the "prospectors and'laboring men of the interior
never had a better friend than A. E.
Howse." Fortunately, this story is confirmed and corroborated.
The Napoleonic genius of the Gazette
who does most of the thinking for this
camp and is not afraid to tell you so, is
talking of retrenchment and economy in
office. When he was road boss up the
West Fork and sat on a rock and watched
men working did he believe in economy
then ? Thousands of dollars were spent
on the roads in that country and the only
use made of them was when the 'Major'
and his niule went hunting wildcats. Finally he packed his blankets and hit the
high places over the road into this camp.
What is Beaverdell's gain, is Hedley's
loss.
The military think artist who did not
exactly find the national policy, but failed
to put the late Sir John next to his job,
says Premier McBride is a profound
scholar. If it is true, Dewdney Dick
must be running the affairs of this country in one of the dead languages.
Garfield Mohr, of Schubert's store, has
gone to Enderby. He will not return
alone—he will have the stage driver with
him.
Two Fatal Accidents.
A stranger namedQuillan, of Glasgow,
Scotland, coming to Princeton had the
misfortune to lose his life from falling
off a loaded f-eight wagon near P. Mar
quette's on the Nicola road. It appears
that he, with a fellow traveller, and
Johnny Chuckaluck, the Indian teamster,
were intoxicated and in coming down
grade the unfortunate man lost his seat
and fell on his head, dislocating his neck.
Inquest was held by coroner Macphail on
Wednesday and a verdict in accordance
with the facts rendered. The Indian was
sentenced to six months' imprisonment
and fined $25 for drunkenness by magistrate Murray at Nicola.
Another similar fatal accident occurred
near Coutlee this week when a klootch-
man named Maria fell off a freight wagon
and was run over by the wheels, crushing
life out at once—particulars are not at
hand.
Subscribe for the Star and be in the
swim. Read the following extract from
a letter from one of the largest public
libraries in the province : "With the exception of the Colonist, Victoria, the
STAR is one of the best read of those
published in British Columbia, excepting
also the local city papers, which is to be
expected."
The petition sent to Hedley last week
returned with a splendid roll of names
thanks to 'Strong Mac' and citizens.
FALSE STATEMENTS
Mischief Making Editor Wal=
lows in Miry Slough of
Base Slander.
''Lacks Confirmation," he  Says, Yet
Gives Scurrilous Report Color
of Truth.
Oh condition that no future attention
will be given to coarse personalities and
base insinuations emanating from the
Hedley press, the indulgence of Star
readers is invited while refutation is
made of them and some misleading items.
The ignoble motive which prompted the
writer of them is very clumsily concealed, while their false and malicious
import are as plain as the noonday sun,
all of which call for denial and exposure
lest the imposture should gain credence
with unsuspecting persons. The callow
editor of that paper must be a hardened
and contemptible sinner when he will
attempt to villify and slur not only one
person but a whole community of people.
Why he should try to disturb the friendly
relations which have always existed between the people of Hedley and Princeton by creating sectional animosities can
only be accounted for on the score of
ignorance and a morbid desire to bring
the paper he runs into notoriety. Maddened with a wouhded self-conceit because no one paid but little attention to
his twaddle about a mining school, which
is being ably advocated by a number of
journals, he makes low and deceptive allusion to the manager of the Star. In
doing so the underlying sneer flungat So
cialists is wholly unwarranted, for they
are a body of respectable and conscientious men to belong to whom is as creditable as to unite with any political organization and for whose opinions the ordinary decencies, at least, of every honorable editor are accorded—but, not so with
the Hedley paper. The aspersions cast
upon the Star manager are made with
the evident intention of branding him as
a turncoat and holding him up to obloquy and scorn. What are the facts ill Mr.
Howse has not wavered in his loyalty to
the Liberals by so much as a hairbreadth
of which his paper is abundant proof;
he was not in Victoria at the opening of
the legislature, nor for a week later; he
is not on 'extremely good terms' with the
socialist members for he is opposed to
much of their doctrine, notwithstanding
the Hedley paper's false statements to
the contrary.
Among respectable journalists the man
who would waylay the character of unoffending parties is read out of the ranks
as a traitor is drummed out of his corps,
there to be the object of strong denudations and of scorn.   From him the usual
courtesies and amenities of Hie newspaper profession are withdrawn. This
ostracism may reform the mud-slinging
editor for a time but like the incorrigible
swine he often returns to his wallow with
fiercer attack until the prison door closes
hehind him and he is lost to view and
memory. A newspaper is a dangerous
weapon in the hands of the untutored
and conceited, evidence of which is observed in the Hedley effusion. It may
in its unchecked career poison the minds
of the unwary and malign the characters
of others until the whole locality where
it is published partakes of the vile odor
of its contents and in consequence suffers
in reputation. "Fools rush in where
angels fear to tread," a more fitting application of which has not been observed
in many years of journalistic life on metropolitan and other papers than is to
be found with Hedley's yellowish newspaper. The Star will never resort to villi-
ficationand slander for those are the weapons of the traducer and backcapperin
any walk of life and are not considered
argument by sensible men.
Regarding . the change in postmaster-
ship here it was recommended by the
central Liberal Association, there being
no organization in Princeton, and wasdue
to the M.P's and its initiative solely and
to the fact that the late postmaster had
served in the Dominion campaign as the
agent of the elected member's opponent,
and as everyone knows,an agent is selected for his political party leanings and
wide influence. The fact that he was
agent is attested by the certificate deposited by him with the deputy returning officer and placed in the ballot box
on polling day. His removal was for
political reasons only and is no reflection
whatever upon his trustworthiness or
competency, both of which are acknowledged by the P.O. department and the
general, public, while as a fellow citizen
he is esteemed irrespective of political
party.
"The sneer at the diminished population
of Princeton and the suggested means of
adding a few boarders is as a kick at a
man when he is down and is cowardly.
It is true that Princeton is a wreck as
compared with its robust condition of
yore. But it is no fault of the people
here who have struggled and persevered
against hardship and privation and political combination and monopoly. Rather are they to be encouraged than to
have the ungenerous remarks of the
Hedley man thrown at them.
Mr. Shatford, M. P. P., can scarcely
hope to have his popularity increased by
permitting the conduct of his organ to
descend to tactics which are at total variance with the code governing respectable
journalism. Finally, the "boiler-plate"
editor might, with more profit and edification print some garbled mining
report containing long, technical names
and then he could pose as an expert.

IMPKOVEMENT OF ROADS.
The petition addressed to the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works and put in circulation by
the Board of Trade for the purpose
of securing an appropriation from
the provincial government to reduce the steeper grades on the main
trunk road between Princeton and
Hedley and between Princeton and
Granite creek is one to which all
may well subscribe. When the
difficulties and dangers of passenger and freight traffic have been
once experienced on this road there
can be but one conclusion as to the
necessity for immediate remedy.
In one or two places the grade is so
steep that freighters must regulate
the weight of their loads so that
they may overcome them, although
for the remaining distance of sotre
sixty or seventy miles haulage the
grades are much lighter and could
thus admit of heavier loading were
it not for the particularly heavy
grades pointed out.
It must be obvious to the merest
novice in road making that the
builders of this road in the first
instance gave no heed to grades,
the evident intention being to sacrifice safety and easy draft for lesser
cost of a higher grade and circuitous route. The days of following
deer paths and bridle trails in constructing roads is past. Now, with
the aid of a little common sense and
a level, direct and even grades are
obtained and former mistakes may
be rectified. The demands of increased traffie nowadays are such
that the old styles of road making
are obsolete and discarded. Instead
of carrying a road over a bluff or a
hill as was done in former days the
side cut is made, which renders
speed, safety and easy haul capable of being put into effect.
With the increase of freighting
between Hedley and Princeton, due
largely to the demand for coal
mined in the latter place, the real
need of improved road conditions is
very apparent. In fact the 3'oung
and struggling life of the coal industry, small though it is, now depends upon shipping facilities.
Hedley would gladly take of the
coal produced here if the freight
rates were reduced. At present it
costs about $10 to lay a ton of coal
down at that distance of 25 miles
but a large reduction would result,
no doubt, from levelling the road
and minor improvements. The
reasonable request of the petitioners
having been fully established the
next consideration is that of money
and the iustice of the demand for
it. The same reasons for improvement of the Hedley portion of the
road are applicable to that of Granite creek and would tend to lessen
freight rates on that route also.
The revenue derived by the government from the coal resources of
Princeton district, on a low estimate
of forty coal claims being held by
license and lease, is in the neighborhood of $4,000. These figures
are, of course, subject to correction
as the only means of ascertaining
a correct statement lies with the
Department of Lands and Works.
For practical purposes the estimate
is near enough and affords the government forcible proof of the iustice of the requisition, when from
one source alone there is ample revenue in one year to cover the estip
mated cost of the improvements.
The Commissioner of Lands and
Works under advisement of Mr.
Shatford, M.P.P. for Similkameen,
will, no doubt, recommend the improvements desired and so necessary.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
As was mentioned in the Star
some time ago, there was only one
paper at that time which opposed
the establishment of a mining
school—that statement has not been
disproved notwithstanding the barbaric screeches of the Hedley paper.
Like ail dyspeptic laggards in the
march of progress its editor sees
lions standing in the way and all
manner of visionary difficulties because the Star advocates a school
and pointed out the merits of Princeton as a location. On the authority
of a professor in the Kingston mining school, whose name may be had
on application at this office, this
town was pronounced an excellent
location owing to its central situation in a vast and varied mineral
field, but no one but a man on the
borders of idiocy could construe the
Star articles as urging the establishment of a school here before a
railway and its accompanying conveniences arrived. As to cost and
comparisons the Hedley scribe's
remarks are equally inane with all
his suggestions. What analogy is
there between the agricultural province of Ontario and the mining
province of B.C. as to their need
of a mining school ? Students from
Kingston and Montreal come in car
loads annually at great.cost to study
mineral conditions in B.C. How
much better to have a school on the
spot ? The member for Yale-Cariboo will endeavor to get a Domin-
i ion appropriation and this province
ought to put up enough cash to
make a beginning at least. There
is money required for roads, as the
Hedley man truly remarks. When
was this province in any other condition than that of want of them,
yet luxurious parliament buildings
costing a million and a half of dollars were erected? Roads were
wanted before a mining school was
thought of and will be required for
a hundred years after it is established, but those reasons are not sufficient to "balk progress and education." If the present government
at Victoria will not assist in the
establishment of a mining school
they ought to give place to better
men.
