Low Water in Rivers Favorable for
Gold Washing—Geologists
in Similkameen.
The Similkameen and Tuiameen rivers
are4ower than ever known by the oldest
resident. The conditions for bar and
other placer diggings are very favorable
owing to the low water. Chinamen are
gold washing.but "John" is too canning
to tell what luck he is having.
The Vermilion  Forks Mining Co. are
agents for the Elmore oil process of smelting, particulars of which  may be had on

Fred Baker, the obliging driver on the
Penticton stage route, has been under
medical care for the past week with an
abcess in his head. Driver Roadhouse is
relieving meanwhile.
Rev. J. Lang will conduct public worship tomorrow in the school house at 3:30
p.m.   Sunday school at 2:30.
Prof. A. Lakes and son of Denver, Col.,
were visitors to Princeton on Wednesday
going on to Hedley on Thursday's stage.
The professor is making a personal investigation of the mineral resources of
the country on behalf of clients in Co'-
orado. He was extemely reticent as to
his mission or his impressions and seemed
to have a "holy" fear of the man behind
the pencil. No doubt he had important
business on nand which if divulged
would interfere with his plans and operations. At some convenient season in the
near future it is hoped he will be at liberty to "loosen up" for the benefit of the
public generally and Princeton in particular.
The average daily attendance for eight
school days in August was 15.
L. G. Barron in writing to parties here
states that the mining congress which he
attended in Portland was a grand success.
It was the greatest body of mining men
ever met in the United StateS;aud will be
the means of setting the mining industry
on a very high planer The samples of
ore sent from Princeton to the congress
in care of Mr. Barron were delayed en
route and arrived too late.
A letter received from an old subscriber
to the Star in which he pays for the
coming volume, and says: "I am^deeply
interested in your section, and like many
others I am waiting anxiously for that
long-talked of railroad. I am pleased to
hear that the people in the Similkameen
' will soon have the opportunity of sending their voices over the wires."
A. H. James, M.B., and son are visitors
to Princeton   this   week,   having been
drawn hither by the mineral wealth of
the district which now attracts people
from all parts of the globe. Mr. James
has a wide experience in mining in South
Africa and Australia. He is looking up
geological facts and otherwise acquainting himself with the country with a view
to the practise of his profession.
Billy Small has so far recovered from
his serious runaway accident of last fall
as to be able to perform the duties of
wine clerk.
GEOLOGIST SEES GOAL. AREAS.
Has Firm Belief in Mineral Wealth
of this District.
M. B* Baker, M.A., B.Sc, assistant lecturer in the school of mines, Kingston,
Ont., came in on last Saturday's stage
He has been examining the coal areas of
Nicola and he is here to report upon the
quality and extent of the Princeton coal
measures to eastern capitalists. As a
geologist Mr. Baker has held important
positions with the Ontario government
and large mining and manufacturing concerns. He considers the Similkameen.
remarkably rich in metals and was aston-i
ished at the variety and character of the
mineral specimens in the Jackson hotel
cabinet. The picturesque location of
Princeton appealed to his strong sense of
scenic beauty. When interrogated as to
its fitness for locating a school of mines
here he said : "Ideal, when transportation is afforded." He explained that
Kingston was selected for a school of
mines owing to its proximity to mineral
deposits and said that Princeton was infinitely better off in offering such a wide
range of minerals for practical research
by students. He left for Otter Flat on
Wednesday and goes east Sunday.
Railway Notes.
The Canadian Pacific railway directors
have recently announced the issue of new
stock amounting to $25,000,000. A meeting of shareholders will be held in Montreal on October 5th to ratify the issue.
It is intended to expend all this monev
on new road. It is doubtful if any of the
money will be spent in the Similkameen
as the C.P.R. has all it can shoulder in
the wheat belt of the northwest territories.
Besides, a new competitor, the Grand
Trunk Pacific, will tax all its energy and
resources to keep it from invading C.P.R.
territory. Just at present the only hope
of the Similkameen lies in the Great
Northern which has a corps of engineers
at work west of Midway. The C.P.R.;
has not driven a peg as yet. Private information has been received that actual
construction will begin west of Midway
into the Similkameen as soon as the
Boundary contracts are finished.
The Grand Forks and Phoenix branch
of the Great Northern and also the Curlew and Midway will be graded within
sixty days.
HEDLEY PARAGRAPHS
Labor Day Observed in Hedley
with Sport, Pastime
and Dance.
The   Baseball Hatch  Won  by the
Home Team—Drilling Contest Exciting.
Hedley, {?ept. 6.—Fine weather greeted
the pleasure seekers on Labor day, and
while nature smiled everyone seemed in
good humor and bent on having a day of
pleasure.
The Hedley baseball team again proved
their superiority by defeating the Enderby team by a score of 21 to 6. Although the game was.ear% so one-sided
as to leave no doubt as to the result yet
the Enderby boys, with the hearts of true
sportsmen, pluckily^held on until the
last.
In horse racing Bert Allison's Jess easily won the first and principal race and
he also won the saddle horse race with,
his horse Johnnie. The cowboy race
went to Hans Richter's Gray, with P.
Green's horse a close second.
In athletic sports the X"m^e an<^ IO°
yards races, also the broad jump, went to
Manuel. The high jump and the hop-
step-and-jump were won by Vic Ryder.
The other athletic events were keenly
contested and the prizes captured by well
known residents of Hedley and the surrounding country.
The drilling contest was the most ex-'
citing event on the programme. Three
I teams were entered, made up of well
I jcnown miners from the hill. The first
money was won by Borhman and Berks
ith a record of 31^ inches, the second
y Wilson and Sherwood with a record
f 29^5 inches. McKinnon Bros., made
very creditable showing of 27 inches.
The able manner in which Messrs! Sher-
wood and Berks in their respective teams
wielded the hammer drew many expressions of admiration from the interested
spectators.
The ball was a decided success. The
music consisted of a violin, cornet and
piano and was all that could be desired.
Skip.
firmly located by "its fine natural situation, its commercial importance as a mining centre, its established government
offices and court house and the fact that
no railway company can afford to ignore
it, there ought "to be no halting in the
minds of the educational authorities to
recommend a first class school house
being erected in the immediate future.
It is up to the local representative to endorse the action of the school trustees in
this matter.
TAKING STOCK OF MINERALS.
Similkameen is Unrivalled for Railroad and Smelter Profits.
Charles  H.   Wolf,   geologist   for   the
Granby smelter, Grand Forks, arrived in
(Princeton last Sunday from Hedley.   He
bs here   to  examine and  report on the
-mineral deposits of the district.    Already
me has covered   the   ground   from  the
Sboundary  up to this point and left on
'Wednesday for Roche river, working back
Uo  Princeton  via  Copper and Kennedy
mountains.    The Tuiameen and Boulder
districts will   be visited  also in both of
/which  Granby   people are said to have
large  holdings.    There  is no doubt that
[the Granby  directorate have in view the
{building of a large smelter near Princeton, confirmatory evidence of which is
in the possession of persons who have
eligible smelter sites and no doubt the
real object of Mr. Wolff's mission is to
determine certain required preliminaries
to actual construction.    As is well known
PresidentJBUll__ofthe  Great_Norlhern is
' interested in Granby stock.   He has the
faculty  of creating tonnage  for his road
and ore tonnage has no equal for profits.
The   reasonable deduction is, therefore,
that Mr.  Hill is now securing further
data for his guidance in Similkameen enterprises, ijcj^-

A Government School.
School inspector Gordon was in Princeton Wednesday for the purpose of making a report to the department of Education regarding the establishment of a
government unassisted school here. It
is believed that the government will' be
wisely advised in building a much larger
structure than that now in use both for
present and future needs. The outlook
for a largely increased school population
within a few months is due to various
signs of the  times.    As  Princeton  is
Guarding Against Fire.
/ Editor Star—Sir: In order to pre-
vent any misunderstanding and unpleasantness would you kindly inform the
citizens of Princeton through the medium of your valuable paper that a thorough inspection of all stoves, chimnies,
etc., will be made shortly, and that now,
before the necessity of lighting stoves
commences, is the time to make any
alterations that have been already recommended by the fire wardens. Anything of a dangerous nature will be condemned and the law strictlyenforced on
all those who fail to comply with itJ'afffj;
Your humble servant",
E. Barr Hau,.

Princeton, Sept. I.
President Hill asks no favors from the
B.C. government and requires no bonus.
Notwithstanding that fact some government supporters are trying to take credit
for the advent of the Great Northern into
the Similkameen—it won't go down.

LOYALTY TO THE SIMILKAMEEN.
The   SiBiilkameen   has   all  the
natural resources necessary for making a prosperous country with populous and wealthy cities.    The attention of capitalists, companies and
investors generally has been turned
•toward it but there is not the progress which? ought to cb aracterize
a new country.    Making due allowance for lack of railway, telephone
and  the mere   pittance of government appropriations for roads, trails
and  other   improvements,   there is
a something which retards private
and individual  enterprise of those
who are already resident here.   The
oft-told  possibilities  of the district
may have lulled some into an attitude of indifference regarding their
responsibilities and obligations as
citizens.    If there be lack of energy
and public spirit  on   the  part of
the  people,   no  matter how richly
endowed by nature a town or country may be, it will languish and be
outrun in the race.    All are familiar
with    examples   of   farmers   and
others beginning with equally good
soil,   opportunities  or  capital and
yet through lack  of energy, industry or enthusiasm some are left out of
sight in the competition.    As  with
individuals so   with communities,
towns, districts and countries—once
courage,  vitality  or  industry give
place to despondency, inactivity or
laziness then their plight is bad indeed.    If there is a public institution in the town, district or community which aims at the general welfare assist it by moral support if not
by money  contribution, but do not
knock it.    Finally, all those neighborhoods, sections  and individuals
which have  the reputation of paying their honest debts promptly, and
as promised    have  the best  asset
that it is possible  to have and is a
mighty  factor  in the aggregate of
prosperity.
The following extract bearing, on
the need of local enterprise is from
a trade journal: " Hundreds of
towns have died just because the
people of the place were penurious,-
easily discouraged, pessimistic or
disgruntled and were lacking in enthusiasm, public spirit and confidence in themselves, in their neighbors and their town. Lots of people are altogether too willing to
slide down and give up.   Such men
decline to participate in any public
enterprise or movement for the betterment of conditions or for the general good.
" Now enthusiasm and enterprise
were never wasted ; they are contagious.    Hundreds and thousands
of towns have been made and built
up into trade and industrial centres
of importance by  the enthusiasm,
public spirit   and  enterprise of  a
comparatively few  men.    Enthusiasm, bubbling over and enterprise
unquenchable  is   what  is wanted,
and the more that any community
has of these cardinal  virtues, the
better off that community will be,
the greater its prosperity, the more
certain  and  rapid  its growth, and
the less keenly  its periods of depression will be felt.    It is the people that make a town or build up a
city.    Everyone'knows of instances
of towns  and  cities which had excellent    natural    advantages,   but
which,  for some  reason  or other,
failed to move   forward    as they
should have.    And we. all know of
many towns without any particular
natural advantages which have created advantages and   grown into
thriving cities.    Fortunate, indeed,
is that town which has a large body
of public spirited, enterprising and
enthusiastic  business men and citizens.
" So stand up for your town.
Merchants, business men, get together, pull together and for the
good of your town. Tell the world
of the advantages, although they
may be few. Start enterprises that
will employ people. Develop such
surrounding resources as there may
be. And farmers, patronize your
home merchants. They can do as
well by you as any outsider can and
the chances are that they will do
better by you than such outsiders
will."

LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
Ben Baker and Jim Snowden have gone
prospecting on the Roche river divide.
A score of Uncle Sam's mules were
loaded with supplies from local merchants this week and sent forward to the
boundary surveyors. It is expected that
work will be stopped for this season by
the first of October.
A "lamentable muddle" is the aftermath of the Grand Forks carnival recently held there. According to a statement of the finance committee the liabilities exceed receipts by $1,200. A fine
crop of lawsuits is in sight.
Claude Snowden fears nothing that
crawls or walks and is a man of many
parts. He usually follows prospecting
but he will tackle any j'ob with a day's
wage in it. In the recent rush he was
head waiter in the Jackson. The mineral
instinct, always strong, got him into some
funny plights when repeating the bill of
fare. Thus he would get bacon, ham
and eggs interlarded with diorite, ande-
site or apatite and he invariably accompanied hot cakes with float. But zinc
soup paralyzed everybody. Claude is so
highly mineralized that his very breath
assays largely in sulphurets when he is
mad. He is never more at home, however, than when roaming the hills on his
thick Corinthian legs or in nightly bivouac, 'joshed' to sleep he stretches himself out with nothing but mountain dew
for pillow or cover.
Vic Ryder and Johnny Stevenson leave
■ shortly for Chilliwack via Hope pass.

VBob Burdette, the humorist, offers some
tamely advice to those who wish to own
a(farm. He says: " My homeless friend
with the chromatic nose, while you are
stirring up sugar in a ten cent glass of
gin, let me give you a fact to wash down
with it. You may say you have longed
for years for the free, independent life of
a farmer, but you have never been able
to get enough money to buy a farm. But
there is where you are mistaken. For
some years you have been drinkihg a
good improved farm at the rate of ioo
square feet at a gulp. If you doubt this
statement figure it out yourself. Estimate, for convenience, the land at $43.56
an acre, you will see that it brings the
land just one mill per square foot. Now
pour down the fiery stuff and imagine
you are swallowing a strawberry patch.
Call in five of your friends and have
them help you gulp down that 500 foot
garden. Get on a. spree some day and
see how long it will take to swallow pasture land enough to feed a cow. Put
down that glass of gin
—300 feet of good,
$43.56 per acre.
They sat together on Bridge street
watching the moon rise over the distant
hill. They had been silent for some time
and there was nothing to disturb the serenity of the occasion but the momentary
growl of "Scraps" and the meow of the
feline on the fence opposite. She was a
beautiful girl and he was in the prime of
manhood with a gently curling moustache. He moved, uneasily. It was
apparent that, something was on his mind.
He looked at her furtively. He deter;
mined at last to make the plunge and
turned Jiis face resolutely toward hers.
"Dear," he said, "I am going to ask you
a question that I have never asked before. I hope it will not shock you. You
will notice by the stars that the evening
is advancing. There is not a sound now
and .it is evident that your father and
mother have retired for the night. There
is no one to disturb us. All is 'just lovely.' The pale moonlight is sufficient and
the stars shed their glinting rays in tije
right proportion. A soft, .sentimental
feeling that I have not been able to overcome is stealing over me. I hope it has
over you too. Now, what I want to ask
you is this: Considering all the circumstances I have mentioned, do you think
it would be quite proper for me to kiss
3'ou ?" The beautiful creature at his side
turned impulsively and laid a delicate
hand on his arm. "Do you know what-1
really think?" she said earnestly.
"Yes." "Then, considering everything,
I don't think it would be proper for you
not to kiss me."

Methods of English Agency to Victimize Bachelors Shown Tip-
Corroborating the comment made in
the Star of August 20 on "Matrimonial
Agencies," the commissioner of immigra
tion for Manitoba, J. Obed Smith, states
that he is about to stop the work of this
agency      The   Winnipeg Free Press of
Aug. 20 says:   "The Free Press, which
has always scrutinized with the utmost
care all advertising matter seeking a place
in its pages, and which constantly rejects
matter deemed for any reason objectionable, on receiving the advertisement referred to immediately entered into correspondence with  the commissioner of
immigration with a view to ascertaining
whether this firm offering the matter had
a bona fide existence and were actually
prepared to carry out the agreement specified.   The commissioner  referred the
inquiry to the London office, which made
a thorough investigation of the affairs of
the matrimonial  bureau, employing for
this purpose   the   officers   of Scotland
Yard, the centre of all police authority
in London.    The reply of the English
authorities was received in the city yesterday by the commissioner, and is to the
effect that the corporation which has been
already extensively advertised in British
Columbia and Manitoba papers is wholly
fraudulent, undeserving of the slightest
public confidence, and   entirely unprepared to serve the public in any capacity.
The commissioner desires the Free Press
to warn all readers of the entire unreliability of the   firm and any reader who
may have been unfortunate enough to
enter into any negotiations with the company may understand that nothing what
ever is to be looked for from them in the
way of the fulfilment of any contract.
It is a true successor to the numberless
fake concerns which have sought to defraud the unsuspicious public, and whose
advertising matter has been accepted by
many confidingnewspapers."
