PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1905.
$2 a Year, in Advance
Bankers ' Take in' the Country.
Campbell Sweeney, inspector of bank
of Montreal agencies and Manager Henderson of the Vernon branch accompanied by H. DeVeber, mining man, were
in town yesterday. They drove up to
Copper mountain and there saw ore to
satisfy the most fastidious. Mr. Sweeney
is really enamored of the Similkameen
and thinks Princeton a fit dwelling place
for the gods. He pointed to the verdant
hills and benches and pictured homes for
the million yet to come with the railroad
which he believed was not far distant.
As to the establishment of a bank here
he was decidedly non-commital, preferring to await the arrival of more people
and the accumulation of data on which
to base a report to his directors The
party were well pleased with all they
saw.
Capitalist Investigates.
Col. Weir, of New York, arrived in
town Monday, driving in special conveyance from Greenwood, where he left the
railroad. The Col. is one of the leading
personages in that great artery of finance,
Wall street, and comes here to make a
personal investigation of investment opportunities in the district and at Copper
mountain in particular. He is one of the
pillars of the B.C. Copper Co. which i;
now reaching out to this section. This
company has a smelter at Greenwood and
expect to build another at Midway. It
is possible another will be built in this
vicinity as the company's Sunset interests
would fully justify. A force of a dozen
men under foreman Morrison is now at
work proving this property and it will be
increased to 25 as soon as accommodation is afforded.
Improving with Depth.
Snowden Bros, have had good luck in
sinking on the Oriole during the past
week having made a strike of exceedingly fine looking ore. It bears out the reputation always held by the Oriole since
its discovery of improving with depth.
The shaft is now down twenty-five feet
and all in ore. The ore contains small
values in gold and silver and 5 per cent,
in copper. The Oriole was located in
1897 and adjoins the Helen Gardiner, another promising property near the now
famous Sunset. With an ore dyke of 150
feet in width the Oriole may reasonably
be expected to develop into a mine of
permanent productiveness and value.
Engineer Turner and foreman Morri
son arrived Sunday night with wives and'
children from Greenwood and  left for
the Sunset mine on the following day.
• Mr. Hunter, head of the Hunter-Ken"
dricks Co., general merchants in the
Boundary, was in town Monday. He ex«
pects to return in about thirty days.
Messrs. Rowlands and Lunn of Ashcroft are visitors here, the former will
probably remain permanently.
THE BOARD OF TRADE
New Members Added and Delinquent Ones Invited
to Liquidate.
Electric Lighting and Water Systems
Required — Provincial Constable Wanted.
At the board of trade meeting Thursday night, during: routine, as a result of
the sparse attendance the question of a
much needed revival among the members and the acquisition of new ones was
discussed. The treasurer made a financial statement which showed the board
to be in a solvent condition. The view
prevailed, however, that mere solvency
was not enough, the board required
money to provide needed furnishings,
books, maps, printing, etc. The delinquent list of members was read, it being
altogether out of proportion a motion
was made that a statement with a note
of urgency appended be served on all in
arrears. Revision of membership roll
was suggested, the matter of erasures
from it through delinquency being left
to the persons concerned and a committee.
Communications from L. W. Shatford,
M.P.P., were read, first, informing the
board that he would do his utmost to procure an appropriation for lessening the
grades on road between Hedley and
Princeton, and, second, that he could
hold out no hope for . a grant of money
to be spent on street improvements in
Princeton, such a proposition being unheard of before by him. In a former debate on the latter question it was stated
that Golden and Ymir had received government aid for street improvements and
that, in any case, a reasonable return for
taxes paid was all that was desired in
Princeton, which is unincorporated.
The board was notified that the lack of
a resident assayer in Princeton was a
serious drawback. The consensus of
opinion was that the announcement of an
opening for an assayer in the Star would
be sufficient. At^&x<%VZ'*'
Without dissent members^expressed
'the immediate need of a resident provincial constable in Princeton. The secretary was instructed to notify Mr. Shatford accordingly ; also stating that none
»but a man of good physique and otherwise efficient would be acceptable.
The necessity for electric light and4
water systems being pointed out, the in-^
formation was elicited that already a sub;
sidiary company of the Vermilion Forks
Mining and Development Co. and known
as the Princeton Electric Power Co., had
been formed with a capital of #100,000,
also that the Princeton Water Works Co.

work on the well known Diamond Dot,
Copper mountain, and is applying for a
crown grant.
C. H. Wolff arrived in Princeton from
Spokane on Monday. He was here last

Observant Mining Man.
W. G. Tanner, of Seattle, was at Copper mountain during the week looking
over mineral properties there with a view
to possible investments. In the short
time he has been here he has been busy
familiarizing himself with the country
and fully recognizes its immense mineral
possibilities in coal, ore and placer mining and states that prospecting is yet in
its infancy inasmuch as there are large
areas of untouched ground. Having had
wide experience in mining in the west
he has no hesitation in predicting a prosperous future for this district when rail
communication is provided. He has
large mining interests at the coast.

badly shaken up and suffered from contusions. Drs. Schon and McEwen were
in attendance upon the patient as quickly
as possible though some thirty miles
away and he was removed to Dr. Schon's
office here The fracture is near the
ankle. Mr. Shaw is a witness in the
Olympia mining case at Kamloops and
will leave Sunday by stage on what must
necessarily be a painful journey accompanied by his assistant, Mr. Rice. All
that medical skill can devise is being
done to relieve suffering. Mr. Shaw's

PRINCETON.
The vast and diversified resources of mineral, timber and agriculture and the enormous hydroelectric power to be derived from
falls in tbe rivers and streams will
surely make Princeton and the district tributary to it a most inviting
field for settlement and investment.
Timber in the foothills of the Hope
range is said to be of good quality
and abundant and will be manufactured here and the agricultural
lands are fertile with proper irrigation. From their now crude and
undeveloped condition a wonderful transformation must take place
with the coming railways.
With all the advantages of a
healthful and equable climate ; its
beautiful vales ; hunting grounds ;
its money-making possibilities, it is
bound to attract the capitalist, the
small investor, the promoter, the
homeseeker, and those in search
of health and recreation. Already,
We hear the tread of pioneers,
Of cities yet to be ;
The first low wash of waves where soon
Shall roll the human sea.
When comparison is made with
other mining districts Princeton
powers skyward above them in those
things which pertain to comfort,
pleasure and even the necessaries of
life. The deathly cold of Yukon
nor the scorching rays of Nevada
have no terrors for residents of the
Similkameen. At Tonopah and
Goldfield, Nev., water costs 25 cents
a bucket and the burning heat of
the desert is almost unbearable
—here, at Princeton, wild food and
water may be had without money
and without price.
All the. attributes of civilization,
minus many of its worst features,
may be found in the social life of
Princeton. A well conducted public school with an efficient principal
provides free education for the youth
of the community ; religious worship and Sunday school afford that
moral and spiritual instruction without which man would revert to the
barbaric customs of the uncivilized
tribes—Princeton is, happily, well
supplied in preaching and teachij|||
The founding of a public library has
been undertaken by a committee
who would be glad to receive any
assistance in  money  or literature
from those of a philanthropic cast
of mind. A board of trade was
established about a year ago and it
has proved its value and importance
over and over again until it has
become an inseparable factor in the
progressive life of the town. All
that is required is unity of purpose
and combined action among its citizens to make it the city nature destined it to be. As with individuals so with towns in prosperous condition and of bright prospects;
jealous eyes and the hammer of the
knocker invariably accompany such.
Princeton has had these in her less
palmy days and will have them, no
doubt, to the end of the chapter.
From this time forth she will gather
strength as she grows and ber de-
famers will sit down in despair.

BOARD OF TRADE
[Concluded from page 1.]
had been organized with a capital of
$25,000 It was explained that the stock
of these companies would be offered first
to citizens and the local investing public,
then to outsiders if any remained. A
site for a water reservoir has been located.
In the discussion on tbe prospective distribution and increasing consumption of
water by residents of Princeton comparison was made with Vancouver, where
the quantity consumed per capita is surprisingly low for a temperate city. Water, pure and abundant, will be provided
for Princeton,
President Groves introduced new members: Dr Schon and G. E. Winkler and
B. Bryant was proposed and accepted.
Board adjourned.
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
Jas. D'Arcy came over from Summer-
land last week and reports everything
booming in that rising town. The influx
of capital continues and advancing prices
indicate that values are not permanent
and therefore now is the buying time.
Fruit land is selling from $200 to $300 an
acre. Mr. Agur of the Massey-Harris
Co. is building a residence costing $15 000
and others are in readiness to construct.
A. D. Worgan, the energetic agent of
the London and Lancashire Assurance
Co. was in town Friday.
Mrs. Parks, Miss Grace Lyall, C F.
Law, Neil McLeod and J. G. Macdonald
of the A. E. Howse Co. are passengers on
the stage today.
F. W. Groves, P.L.S., R. Stevenson, F.
Wampole and H. Hunter have gone to
Kamloops as witnesses on the Olympia
mining case.

HUMOROUS.
Accosted party—Aren't you ashamed
to beg for ten cents ? Weary Willie—Yes
Sir; when I sees dese college presidents
beggin' for millions it makes me feel like
an amateur.
"Ethelnida, darling," murmured the
enraptured young man, "this is the happiest moment of my life. I came here
this evening hoping, yet fearing, I could
not put it off any longer. I felt that I
must know my fate. The suspense was
killing me. But now—I swear it by this
lovely head resting so confidingly on my
shoulder, by the kiss on your sweet lips.
I—but what was that clicking noise I
heard just then ?" "Nothing, Walter ;
nothing but papa. He's a lawyer, you
know, but he amuses himself with all
sorts of queer fads. He's practising on
us with his kodak. Go on, Walter, dear
What were you about to swear?"
Mr. Headstall—That horse you bought
yesterday is a vicious looking animal. Is
he kind ? Mr. Cropper—Kind ? I should
think so. Why, when he came out of
the stable he stood upon his hind legs
and tried to embrace me.
A hard working fancy goods dealer had
ransacked the whole shop in his efforts to
please an old lady who wanted to purchase a present—"anything real nice"—
foi her granddaughter. For the fifteenth
time she picked up and critically examined a neat little satchel. "Are you
quite sure that this is genuine alligator
skin ?" she inquired "Positive, madam,"
quoth the dealer. 'T shot that alligator
myself." "It looks rather soiled," said
the lady. "That, madam, is where it
struck the ground when it tumbled off
the tree."
Daughter—I cannot give Jack up, father. I shall die if I do. Father—You
must never see him again. I will buy
you a new set of diamonds. Daughter—
Well, dear father, I suppose I must try
and be brave. When will you take me
to choose the diamonds ?
Physician (looking into his anteroom
where a number of his patients are wai-
ing)—Who has been waiting the longest?
Tailor (who has called to present his bill)
I have, doctor; I delivered the clothes
to you three years ago.
Friend—I suppose the  baby is fond of
you ?   Papa—Fond  of  me ?     Why,   he
sleeps all dav when I'm not at home and
stays  up  all  night just to enjoy my so
ciety !
Manager—You do not inject enough
contempt, spite and venom into that
word. Actress—I can do no better.
Manager—Nonsense! Speak it just as
you say "plush" when you meet a rival
in an imitation sealskin.
