Fires ars raging all over the district
now. Unless there is rain in plenty very
soon no part of it will escape for the
ground is like tinder and the least breath
of wind fans the fire into ravenous flames
which stop at nothing. So far the damage has been slight beyond the destruction of timber and grass. Some burned
trees falling across the roads and trails
have caused some inconvenience to tra

The suggestion is offered that an effort
to procure the use of the court house for
religious and other public assemblies
should be made when the premier and
the member are here. Princeton has
been all too modest in seeking her rights

with the premier should be fully exercised to impress him with the necessity
of certain improvements and requirements.
B.G. Bachelor Seeks a Wife.
Some months ago, when Mr. Edgar
Wallace was engaged in wiiting a series
of articles in the Daily Mail on the homeless poor of London, he received a letter
from a laborer in British Columbia who
made a remarkable offer. This was nothing more nor less than an offer to marry
any homeless girl whom Mr. Wallace
might choose for him. The only stipulation was that she should be an honest
woman. Wr. Wallace regretted tnat he
could not go further into the matter until
the generous Canadian had furnished
him with—(1) Satisfactory references, including one from his local clergyman.
(2) Money for the girl's fare and for preliminary expenses. (3) His photo for the
satisfaction of his wife-to-be. All these
things came to hand recently and Mr.
Wallace now seeks some girl in distressed
circumstances who desires a start in a new
land as a poor man's wife. He is satisfied from the references that the girl will
be well cared for, and will become mistress of a comfortable if humble establishment.
A communication was received by this
paper recently, evidently in female handwriting, unsigned, which comments on
the apparel of a beef merchant in this
district. This moral weekly has no desire to get tangled up in small social matters or personalities, but if the writer will
call at the sanctum the offices of mediator, counsellor and peacemaker will be
proffered.
HEDLEY PARAGRAPHS
Stamp Mill Running Steadily
and no Shortage of
Good Ore.
Hedley People Modest in their Wishes
for a Bailway and Some
Needed Bain.
Hedley, Aug 16.—The tramway, owing
to a broken shaft, has not been running
for the last ten days. The shaft having
now arrived it is understood everything
will be running in a day or two. Fortunately a large amount of ore was in the
bins at the mill, which was thus enabled
to riln steadily during the time the
tramway was out of order.
A gentleman closely connected with
the Daly Reduction Co. is novv in town.
It is understood that a new tipple and
some other improvements are in contemplation.
Hedley can boast of having the most
unique water supply in B.C. It furnishes
warm water during the day and cold at
night. To explain what may be thought
to be a conundrum we will add that the
pipes through which the water comes are
at present laid upon the surface of the
ground. ^
Our baseball boys are confident of victory on the 5th prox. when they meet the
Enderby team.
The two most fervently expressed
wishes of townspeople are for a railway
and rain. The confident feeling of the
knowing ones is that neither can be long
delayed. Skip.
Caution to Wholesale Firms.
Merchants in Princeton have a goodly
number of well founded kicks at the
careless manner in which their orders for
goods are filled by the wholesale firms.
To begin with—the goods are not put up
securely enough to withstand the wear
and tear of almost a week's journey from
the railroad in a springless freight wagon.
The dust and great heat make it necessary that all perishable goods should have
special care and attention in packing.
Bad packing has caused more strong language than the moral law calls for and
shippers need not be surprised when they
go tapping at the gate of the celestial
city to find that bad packing is a serious
hindrance to admission. But the most
grievous offence, and one for which there
is neither excuse nor palliation, is in
filling orders wrong. Nothing could be
more exasperating to a merchant than to
have his orders mistaken, omitted, neglected, or substituted without specific instructions. In the case of machinery
extra precaution should be taken to prevent any error.    To mention one case
only the mowing machine of a resident
here was idle all summer for want of a
part of the machine which had not been
sent. Shippers ought, in their own interests, to be more careful in filling orders, especially when the distance is so
great from a railroad and delay means
inconvenience and loss.
Favorable Impressions.
H. A. Brown and wife arrived in
Princeton Thursday from Aspen Grove
where he has mining interests. He is of
the opinion shared by many that the
Grove lacks only transportation to make
it one of the great camps of the country.
Mr. Brown has been in western mining
fields, extending from Butte to I he Similkameen, for a number of years. His attention had been directed to the Similkameen b}T verbal and printed reports he
had obtained while in Montana. He
came, saw, and has been conquered—that
is to say, the district exceeds his expectations beyond measure. The contact of
large coal and ore areas was a revelation
to him in some respects. His wide latitude of mining experience together with
his intimate acquaintance of the rise and
progress of western mining towns lead
him to believe that Princeton is destined
to be a large city in the centre of a great
mining field. Its position demonstrates
that, while its beauty of location makes
it desirable for homes for both rich and
poor. Mr. Brown thinks that the railway companies mean business now—with
construction, smelters and other Indus-,
tries will keep pace.
W. C. McDougall of Olalla was in
town Thursday in connection with his
mineral properties on the outskirts of
Princeton. He expects to soon put on
men for the purpose of proving the extent and quality of deposits which already have assayed high in gold and copper. It is understood that Hedley parties are negotiating for a working bond
on the property.
The programme for Labor day sports
at. Hedley will afford amusement for the
most exacting spectator besides giving
opportunity for testing the mettle of
horse and athlete in the various competitions. The baseball match and the
drilling contest have prizes of $150 and-
$100 respectively, the remaining events
having the same liberal proportion of
money reward as their importance demands.   All are cordially invited.
Once more the rumor is repeated that
a newspaper is to be started at Hedley.
Inebriate—'Scuse me, woo' you min'
tellin' me which is the other side of the
stree' ? Soberman—Why, over the road
of course. Inebriate—Thanksh awf'ly.
I was over there jes' now an'tha' fool of
a prospector tol' me it was this side.
Dr. Cumming, dentist, of Chelan, will
be in Hedley on the 5th Sept. Why not
come to Princeton and locate, doctor ?

TWO SEBVILE NEWSPAPERS.
The two anti-Hill railway newspapers in Vancouver have a green-
eyed disrelish for that gentleman's
movements towards the Similkameen. They are quite exasperated
and nonplussed to note the utter indifference with which President Hill
treats their gratuitous advice. The
president of the council in the McBride cabinet through his newspaper in Vancouver- states that Mr.
Hill will never build via Hope
mountains owing to the great cost.
That statement is at par with the
one made in the same paper as to
the railway president having a
controlling interest in the Granby
smelter, which has been refuted in
official circles until there remains
ho foundation for it whatever.
Equally absurd and foundationless
are all the arguments of the two
papers referred to against the Great
Northern people building into the
Similkameen. Moreover, their
ignorance of palpable, facts, so often
stated by reputable engineers, that
the Hope mountains offer no serious obstacle to railway construction,
is reprehensible and injurious, because a newspaper is supposed to
have some knowledge of the subject it treats for the guidance of public action and sentiment.
Notwithstanding   their  repeated
admonitions   Mr. Hill says nothing
but keeps right on  "sawing wood"
—he is pre-eminently   a  business
man ;   the  pair  of newspapers belong  to   the   genus   grafter.     He.
probably    has   more    information
about a railway through the Similkameen stored  away in one of his
many brain cells'^H^fethe combined
battery of brains  which those two
papers represent could hope to contain.    How ludicrous to those who
are on  the spot- and know something of its vast  resources and the
comparative  ease  of  railway construction  in   the  Similkameen are
those mutterings of the Vancouver
scribes.    Mr.  Hill has had a corps
of men, all  told, gathering details
of construction, mapping the route,
estimating tonnage and testing the
coal and ore deposits of the Simile
kameen, while  the editors baye as
little knowledge of it as they have
of Mars.
Since the president oi the council
sounds the alarum of foreign invasion by Mr. Hill he ought to be
patriotic enough to offer some means
of defence. Has he no alternative
railway scheme up his sleeve which
he could produce at the long-promised and much debated summer
railway session? His paper was
the first to announce that summer
session as the great panacea for all
our railway ills, now it never mentions it. The people have lost all
confidence in the premier, the president of the council and his paper,
for their promises and predictiona
have all come to nought. Their
dog-in-the-manger politics are not
calculated to develop this isolated
district. If the newspapers had the
interests of the country in view
they would encourage any and
every legitimate effort to open up
the country, but being the servile
organs of a giant monopoly no good
may be expected of them. The
Star, owing to its limited time,
hopes to have no further occasion to allude in its valuable
space to the disparaging remarks of
its meddlesome contemporaries on
railway construction in the Similkameen, and would urge that the
varied talents of these victims of
early and late indiscretions be centred on such familiar topics. as
"The War," or "The Weather."

MATRIMONIAL AGENCIES.
The  extract  from  an advertisement    of   a   matrimonial    agency
printed on another page  truthfully
states  the  great scarcity of marriageable  women  in the great west.
Those who have been on   the western   frontiers  of  civilization, such
as the Similkameen, know the great
disparity of women and the ill effect
it has   upon the  social  well being
of the community as well as the deterrent  result  upon progress.    To
remedy these  defects and even up
the sexes   has  been the  object of
various   colonization schemes  and
agencies.     In large cities matrimonial agencies thrive upon an ignorant
and  over  credulous   class  of prospective husbands and wives. Money is the  actuating principle in all
their  marital  bargains  which any
person  may  prove by experiment.
There should be a law prohibiting
such  advertisements in local newspapers  and  fhe  circulation  of so-
called matrimonial literature. Then
those human vultures would be deprived of a  livelihood and the field-
cleared for legitimate action by the
government  toward remedying the
great dearth of wives  in the country.    There  is also a serious scarcity of female domestics.    The Chinese  and Japs   have  usurped the
place of the   servant   girl ' in the
home and in the  hotel.    The government could, with  great benefit
to all concerned . establish a matrimonial and domestic supply bureau
for the province.

LOCAL NEWS NOTES,
C. Willerson and P. Johnson arrived
from Aspen Grove on Tuesday where
they have been doing assessment work
on their mining properties. They report
fires raging in that vicinity and on One-
Mile creek.
A jaunting car filled with a rollicking
lot of fair maidens and a young gentleman was observed on Vermilion avenue
the other day making 2:40 time on the
home stretch. As the rig is only intended to carry two of course there was a
breakdown and it had to be taken to the
Vulcan's hospital. The old saying that
"two is company" will be applied in future to the jaunts of the car: So says jehu
and one maid, at least, will not object.
Geo. E. Winkler has a descriptive article of Hedley mining camp in the current number of the Mining Record which
fully-corroborates the opinion of mining
experts that it is one of the richest mineral sections in the Similkameen district.
Mr. Winkler has compressed a lot of information into a small space, illustrated
with cuts, the whole being well worthy
of perusal by all interested in mining
and its progress.
Bill Johnson, packer for the U. S.
boundary survey, came in Wednesday for
supplies for the camp at the intersection
of the Pasayton river with the international line. Five men go out with
Mr. Johnson to work on the survey.
Dr. and Mrs. Whillans of Hedley were
in Princeton last Sunday.
J. T. Swansborough, an old-timer of
Princeton, is visiting tillicums here after
an absence in various parts of the province. He has been in poor health recently and is at present a ward of a
provincial officer. .

Matrimonial Agencies.
The following advertisement appearing
in some of the papers in B.C. is given
space in the Star for the purpose of directing the attention of the authorities
and others to the swindling nuisance of
matrimonial agencies generally:
"There are some hundreds of thousands
more men than women in the central and
western states of America and Canada.
As a result thousands of honorable men
—farmers, miners and others—living in
those districts cannot get wives within
their own circle of acquaintances. But
in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales
there are a million more women than
men and thousands of good, attractive^
girls—many of them daughters of farmers and all of them qualified to make excellent wives—who have no desire to become old maids at home, would willingly
emigrate to: America, could they be assured that they were going to meet
, worthy men as husbands on the other
side of the Atlantic. We are able to give
good men introductions to such girls. If
you wish to get an introduction please
write us with such particulars of yourself
(age, nationality, occupation and circumstances) as a sensible girl would reasonably expect to get and we shall at once
write you in reply. Tell us what kind of
a wife, age, nationality aud experience
you expect to get. You will also'enclose
our fee of $5. A further fee of $45 will
be due to us within one month after'marriage, thus making $50 altogether. It is
not at all necessary that you should be a
wealthy man. But it is necessary that
yo.u are a man who would make a kind
and good husband to a good wife. If you
are not such a man please do not write
us.    Address, &c. London, Eng."

Yet it will buy about the nicest pound of tea you ever brewed. We
have a little better tea at a little better price, but the majority
of tea drinkers don't care to pay more than 50 cents a pound,
especially when they can get such a nice blend as our Ceylon at
that price. This tea is bought especially for us, we mix it to suit,,
and sell it only in bulk. You can have as much as you want of it
at 50 cents a pound. ^

Nicola Coal is in Demand.
George Beaver has returned to Spokane
gp|| from a trip to Nicola coal fields, where,
f in  company  with Jesse Bucholtz, secre-
!j|PS tary of the Nicola Coal & Iron company,
-^^^Jf be examined the claims recently acquired
jP~ by the company.    "Our company," said
Mr. Beaver, "has secured six full sections
upon which the coal outcrops at several
places. These samples I brought back
from a four foot vein exposed on the side
hill by a slide. An agent of the Canadian Pacific railway has been in the district some time making examinations,
and has secured bonds on 19,000 acres of
land. The road has a diamond drill at
work which, at one point, was drilled
through two coal veins, one of four and
the other of six feet in thickness, and
both within 100 feet of the surface."—
Spokesman-Review.
The Best Agoing1.
Lord Dundonald, the late commander-
in-chief of the Canadian militia, was interviewed on his arrival at Liverpool,
recently, and said that it would be inadvisable for him to make any statement
regarding the cause of his departure from
Canada. He had decided not to say anything until he reported himself at the
War office. It was not a fact that he had
expedited his return home owing to a
message from the secretary of war. He
added that "the Canadian people are the
best in the world."

Humorous.
A little girl who made frequent use of
the word "guess" was one day reproved
for it by her teacher, who said : "Don't
say 'guess,' Mary; say 'presume.'" A
few days later one of Mary's friend, coming up to her, remarked: "1 think your
cape is pretty, and my mother wants
your mother to lend her the pattern, because she is going to make me one like
it." "My mother has no pattern," was
the prompt reply; she cut it by presume."
In his parish magazine the vicar of a
well known church in the south of England says : "Perhaps some of you noticed
the singularity in the last banns of marriage published in our church, namely,
between Charles Rose and Rose Charles.
The bride lost her surname Charles, but
married a Charles Rose, and so became
not only Rose Rose, but also Mrs. Charles
Rose instead of Miss Rose Charles."
Father Ducey i's laughingly relating a
recent experience of his. He was walking along Fourth avenue, when he saw a
little boy crying. As he stopped to inquire the cause of the tears he was forestalled by a small girl, who asked sympathetically : "What ails j-ou, boy? Why
are you crying so hard?" "Because
mother's gone to heaven, sobbed the
child. "Oh, don't fret so," replied the
girl, consolingly ; "maybeshe hasn't."
"Zeb," said the colored man's employer, "I'm afraid you are getting a
little lazy." "No, suh," was the earnest
reply. "I isn't lazy, I kin do as much
work as any two o' dese other men, but
I's tryin' to keep f'um showin' off."
Lord Puddenhead—I can't quite understand those poet fellows when they talk
of an "aching void." Seems to me to be
beastly rot, by Jove ! The dear creature
—Haven't you ever had headache, Charlie?
"Truth," remarked the moralizer, "is
stranger than fiction." "Yes," rejoined
the demoralizer, "and the majority of
men seem to be shy of associating with
strangers."
"They tell me," said the j'outh, "that
men who work live longest. Do you believe it?" "Well," replied the sage, "it
depends a good deal on whom they try
to work".
