Princeton Coal Basin is 42 sq. miles in extent.
True friendship is found only in truthful and unselfish persons.
We hear the tread of pioneers,
Of cities yet to be;
The first low wash of waves where soon
Shall roll the human sea.

Two  Weddings   Relieve   the
Social Relapse After
the Holidays.
Politics  Prove  Somewhat Strenuous
for Mr. Shatford—Reported he
will*Retire.
WEDDING AT NICOLA.
■ D Morrison, superintendent for B.C.
Co., will leave in a fortnight on a visit to
his mother in Nova Scotia.
The published retirement ot L. W.
Shatford, M.P.P., after the present session
has led to the announcement of two possible candidates for the vacancy : C. E.
Thomas, Princeton, and E. Bullock-
Webster, Kdreineos.
The Star, as with all the interior newspapers, has given much space to the Sun
day Alliance, an institution which is
doing much to secure a common Rest
Day for workingmen and all classes of
society. Opposition to the Alliance
comes chiefly from greedy employers and
soulless companies.
INSPECTS DRILL OPERATIONS.
Fred. Keffer, manager for the B.C
Copper Co., arrived in Princeton last
Sunday night- on his way to Copper
mountain to inspect the drilling opera
tiions on the Princess May one of the
Sunset group under bond to his company.
Mr. Keffer is such a busy man that he
has no time to talk to reporters but it is
understood that satisfactory results are
being obtained from borings. Considerable native copper has been pierced by
the drill. He expressed pleasure at seeing some very fine ore in Voigt's camp.
The B.C. Copper Co. is making extensive
improvements at their smelter and mines
in the Boundary.
FELL TO CUPID'S AIM.
J. J. Marks and Miss Blanche Brown
were united in marriage at the Methodist
church, Hedley, on Thursday night at 8
o'clock at which there was a large attendance of friends of the popular couple,,
The demonstrations of the audience as-
the final words of the minister made the
happy pair man and wife took on a lively
aspect. Rice and confetti were peppered
at them until the floor was ankle deep in
places, while outside salvoes of hunting
artillery mingled with the music of the
tom-jon, the huegag and the guzzy-fuzzy
greeted the smiling pair. A hundred
guests sat down with Mr. Marks and
bride at the hotel Similkameen to a splendid supper after which dancing was kept
up until chanticleer left the roost and
roseate morn peeped over the hills upon
a thrice happy pair. The Star extends
hearty congratulations.
Princeton   Couple   Make Hymeneal
Vows there Last Monday.
There were few who knew the full import of the departure last Sunday morn
ing of a happy young couple from Princeton to Nicola. The distance is 71 miles
and the road winds through pass and canyon, now on top of high plateau then
quickly descending into valley, along
beautiful lake and rippling stream until
fairest Nicola nestled in a lap of exquisite charm is reached. A more picturesque route could scarcely be suggested
for those journeying to hymen's altar, for
such was the joyous mission of Mr. J. G.
McDonnell and Miss Lyall.
The wedding was celebrated at "Pine-
hurst," the fine residence of Mr. A. E.
Howse, immediate friends and relatives
being present. The ceremony was conducted by Rev. Geo. A. Mason, the bride
being attended by Mrs. F. A. Howse and
the bridegroom supported by Mr. F. A.
Howse, while the bride was given away
by Mr. A. E. Howse. Lohengrin's beautiful wedding march was the musical accompaniment of the interesting occasion
which pat tor Mason cut down to the
shortest form comoatible with solemnity
and the Presbyterian marriage ritual.
The bride was very becomingly attired
and looked supremely happy.
The wedding was at 6 o'clock p.m.
after which supper and then the bridal
party drove in the resplendent lunar
light to quiet Quilchena. Before departing a large party of serenaders with
deep-lunged voices and various implements of music gave them a hearty send-
off, following them with rice showers and
the old lime symbols of good luck, the
slipper, old shoe and the rabbit's paw.
Le aving Quilchena next morning they
drove to Kamloops where a week will be
spent returning to Princeton tomorrow
uight when an ovation will be tendered
them in frontier style. The journey will
include some three hundred miles of
driving, but love braves every difficulty
and laughs at distances, which is typical
of most occidental weddings owing to a
paucity of parsons—Princeton is without
one.
H . The bride is second daughter of W. C.
Lyall, manager of the Princeton branch
of the A. E- Howse Co., L'd, and the
groom is son of J. G. McDonnell of Toronto and is descended from the Highland clan of that name, distinguished on
bloody Culloden's field and later as
United Empire Loyalists defended the
old 'meteor' flag against revolutionists.
He attended Upper Canada College at
the same time as F. A. Howse, on whose
invitation he came to Princeton., thus
meeting his wife and becoming the principal in the happy event above recorded.
The Star joins with many other congratu-
lators and wishes Mr. and Mrs. McDonnell a loqg and happy married life.
LORD'S DAY ALLIANCE
Compliments   Exchanged   Between Fiery Editor and
Irate Preacher.
Contrastive Opinions as to Manner of
Observing the Sabbath, or
Best Day.
Editor Star—Sir : In the Lord's Day
Advocate, Nov., 1905, there appears an
article "The Lord's Day among the
Mountains and on th- Prairies," written
bo the Associate Secretary. The whole
article would be too lengthy for insertion
in your columns, but the following sentences are sufficient to show its spirit toward the West generally, and the miners
in particular :
"True, it was not always the quiet and
worshipful sabbath of older parts of Canada, but in the newest prairie towns, and
in the busiest mining centers there was
an evident respect for the Day. In the
most Sabbathless places there.are those
who heartily helped the Alliance and
stood steadfastly for the maintenance of
the Rest Day as the inherent right of the
citizens and an absolute necessity to the
nation. And there were some towns
where the methods of keeping the day
would be an example to many places in
Eastern Canada.
"The miners differently observe the
Sabbath. The coal miners in the Pass
towns have demanded and obtained freedom from work on Sundays, and in many
silver-lead mines the toilers have their
Rest Day. But in some mines they work
every day alike. Some miners argue
that they have to pay board for every
day and consequently they must work
every day. It must be very poor work
where six days' wages will not pay seven
days' board bill. But without exception
these men after a few months' work
would collect their entire wages and repair to the saloons, gambling dens and
places of vile resort, where in a few days
their hard-earned money would all be
speet."
The Nelson Daily News of Nov. 30
prints the following : "Surely the Associate Secretary of the Lord's Day Alliance Hoes not expect to make converts to
the cause he advocates by the publication of grossly inaccurate statements con-
oerning the silver lead miners of this
province. Yet we find in his report published in the last number of the Lord's
Day Advocate, the statement that in some
mines the men work seven days a week,
and "' without exception these men,
after a few mouth's work, would collect
their entire wages and repair to the
saloons, gambling dens, and places of
vile resort, where in a few days their
hard earned money would all be spent.' "
The man who will deliberately pen scan
dalous libels of this nature ought to be
in jail or in a lunatic asylum."
The editor who would deliberately and
maliciously misrepresent the statements
of any person in this way ought not to
be in a lunatic asylum ; but ought to be
in jail.
By publishing this letter in your valuable paper you will greatly oblige.
T. Albert Moore,
Associate Secretarv, L.D.A.
Mr. Deane, editor of the Daily News,
Nelson, is an active opponent of the
Lord's Day Alliance and has sent a letter
of Rev. H. S. Akehurst's (Church of
England) to the newspapers for publication. Space for extracts only can be found
in the Star, as follows :
"Dear Sir,—There have been sent to
me forms of petitions to the senate and
commons of Canada seeking the enactment of legislation on Sunday observance. * * * These petitions, besides
making illegal the Sunday indulgence
in many innocent recreations, will deprive many working people of the only
opportunity they now enjoy of spending
a few hours in the healthful open air of
the country, and so escaping for a brief
spell the soul-deadening surroundings of
their daily life. * * * Let us in all
lawful and expedient ways try to ensure
to every man his weekly day of rest,
though that may not in all cases or on
all occasions coincide with the Sunday."
The bishops of the church of England
have published a pastoral letter on Sunday observance and the work of the
Lord's Day Alliance, as follows :
"For the further preservation of the
purity and sweetness of christian life, we
would urge on all who 'love the Lord
Jesus' to leave nothing undone by voice,
by influence, by example, to preserve the
sacredness of the Lord's Day. One dreads
to think what the fashionable mode of
regarding and using that day will lead to
and we warn the christian manhood and
womanhood of the church that when
fashion is allowed to usurp the throne of
Christ, when the day is used for excited
pleasure, and wholly divorced from worship, the divine object of the day is lost,
and Christ is dishonored, when above all
he should be glorified. * * * In connection with this we would commend to
the church the work of the Lord's Day
Alliance of Canada. We would welcome
and aid any Godly effort of this description, and knowing the devoted earnestness displayed by the Alliance in this
respect, we pray God's blessing to rest
upon its labors."
[Regarding Sunday observance, the
Star as now edited holds to the Biblical
or sacred Sunday as opposed to the innovations of men. All the 'innocent recreation' necessary for health or enjoyment
may be found on that day in the quiet
stroll or walk in which to commune with
friend or nature. The Alliance has for
vice presidents, Hon. R. L. Borden, K.C.,
M.P^artd Hon. H. R, Einmerson, M,PJ

MINING INDUSTRY GROWS.
The jump in increase of mineral
output of British Columbia for last
year must cause the most hardened
pessimist or knocker to weep tears
of gratitude. Time was when the
croakers said there " was little pay
ore north of the 49th parallel and
that the people Were too slow anyway to develop it. From being a
mere placer gold producing country
of not a score years ago with an
output of about two million dollars
per year, this province last year
produced minerals to the value of
$21,000,000, an increase of $2,000,-
006 over 1904. Those figures fully
establish the fact that the mining
industry has reached a period which
may be termed the manhood of its
existence and has passed out ot its
teens'so far as production and value
are concerned. The province now
stands in. the front rank of lode
mining countries j and only the
fringes of its vast mineral belts
have been touched.
The Similkameen, Atlin, Cariboo,
Cassiar, Omineca and Big Bend districts are only known by name to
the world. Adventurous gold-
hunters discovered the yellow metal
in these districts and large quantities of it were obtained by primitive modes of mining. But ma
chine mining by skilled operators
is very limited in any of them and
• must remain so until the railroads
make transportation of heavy minr
ing appliances possible. What the
gold dredge will do for the Similkar
meen where the rivers and creeks
are known to be rich in gold can
only be estimated by comparison
with other countries. This branch
of gold mining will yet be a great
source of wealth to the province for
all the elements are present to make
it so. But the great hope of these
districts lies in their lode mining
capabilities. Perhaps none of them
is quite so fortunate as the Simrlka--
meen; which will soon have a railway to develop its vast metallifer-.,
ous- deposits and extensile., coal
measures.
It is most gratifying to note that
the increase of last year's output
gives promise of being exceeded in
1906. Nearly all smelters are being
enlarged, mines will be further developed and working staff increased,
while many new mines will be
brought to the shipping stage. The
high prices now realized for all
metals is sure to act as an incentive
to further production, in fact prices
may be said to regulate and control
the industry. Copper is higher
now than for years, $18.50 to $19,
a price that yields large profits and
which can only be maintained by
the excessive demand which now
and for years is predicted to characterize this metal.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The provincial-legislature opened
Thursday, nth" inst., and was
adjourned to Monday when the
speech from the throne would be
considered. After the opening ceremonies Socialist "HaWthornthwaite
played to the galleries by introducing an " Act to Extend the Franchise to Wofen," which was ruled
out of order by the Speaker. The'
Speech is very lengthy and is void
of any striking features. It contains a lot of congratulatory matter
for the very ministers who framed
the speech. Self adulation is a
prominent trait of the McBride
cabinet who, in the bouse and out
of it shake hands with themselves
and pass around the loud-smelling
bouquet with the utmost sang froid
and nerve. The railway policy of
the government is a blank and no
hint is given of the nature of the
legislation, if any, to foster communication with isolated mining districts. • Mr. McBride had opportunity to prove himself an adept in
statecraft had he enunciated a clean
cut railway policy. If be had said
that there would be no more subsidies to railways and upon that
foundation built up a policy he
would have earned the gratitude of
the people and popularized his government. He has not the courage
to fight the bonus-beggars and so
the corridors of the house will be
filled with lobbyists all the session.
Amendments to the Municipal
Clauses Act, the Game Act and the
Land Act are announced and the
suggestion made that more liberal
expenditure for public works is
contemplated.
Gold dredging, as an industry, is
expanding in a remarkable manner
In the scientific way in which it is
conducted now there is probably no
safer mode of mining gold and success is sure to follow when . men of
experience have control of it. The
field for gold dredging in the district from Princeton up the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers, also
Granite ' creek; is practically inexhaustible., Dredging ground maybe obtained''-by lease from 'the provincial government, j Pay. dirt is
found in the bars and benches along
the rivers, many of which produced
handsome returns for the placer
miners of early days.

"I can't understand," said the visitor
in Washington, "why our senator voted
for that bill. I heard him say, not six
months, that he had conscientious scruples against it." "I know he had," answered the Washington correspondent,
"but he—er—took something for that
feeling, and got ovar it."
Little Boy—Anv sign of my moustache

An Irishman leaned over the counter
in a jewellery store and said to the clerk,
"Give me one of your best wedding rings."
"Eighteen Karats ?" he was asked. "No,

Crimsonbeak—I see a .man named
Drinkwater has just made application to
the court for permission to change his
name. Yeast—Why ? What's the matter with Drinkwater for a name ? Crimsonbeak—He's a Kentucky man.
There's no use saying
That you can't get cash.
There's no good delaying
For fear of being rash,
But butt right in
And catch on the fly

Where Nature has done well
And the lots will all sell
