Large and Well Assorted Stocks Carried by Local Merchants Strictly
TJp-to-Date.
Now that Christinas is only a short way
off and people are purchasing their holiday supplies, and sending gifts to friends
and relatives both far and near, the Star
is taking advantage of the occasion to
give the merchants a sort of Xmas gift in
the way of calling special attention to
the manner in which they have prepared
to cater to this trade. Princetoa has
stotes that any town might well be proud
of, carrying stocks that can supply the
demands of the most exacting buyer,
in wearing apparel, edibles, etc., as well
as suitable Xmas presents for men. women and children. There is small excuse for sending your money out of town
to purchase articles that can be had
at home; it is a bad practice and means
building up outside concerns at the expense of our own merchants.
The A. E. Howse Co., Ltd.
This store as usual carries a large stock
of standard goods in the grocery, dry-
goods, and hardware lines. A slock of
millinery, confectionery and children's
toys is also carried. In the grocery department you can find anything you
may wish for in the way of canned
goods fresh from the manufacturer.
All the latest and best breakfast foods are
found on the shelves, put up in attractive packages, giving the buyer a wide
range to choose from. A choice assortment of breakfast hams and bacons is
also keep on hand. The housewife in
se'i&eh of the necessary ingredients for
building plum puddings and Xmas cakes
C4n find a fresh supply of these waiting
to be made use of. Jams, jellies, pickles,
nuts, oranges and raisins are here in
abundance. Christie's sodas and tea
cakes invite inspection. And if there is
anything you don't see just ask for it
On the drygoods side of the house are
to be found the celebrated H. B. K. brand
which guarantees satisfaction. A wide
range of ready made clothing, hats, caps,
gloves, shirts, sweaters, and hosiery is
to be found for both old and young.
A large and uptodate stock of footwear is
kept on hand from the heavy working
boot to the stylish shoe. Rubber goods
are on the shelves also.
The hardware department includes
most everything that is to be found in
the city store. A small line of crockery
and glassware is also carried.
j^If,you want to know what lines of
qafifiinery are carried just drop in and in
quire of the smiling and obliging manager. This big store makes a specialty of
outfitting miners, loggers, etc.
Thomas   Brothers,
The Star takes pleasure in directing
the attention of the public to the advertisement of Thomas Bros'., general merchants, on the third page, in which they
announce that they carry everything of
the best in their line. Among other
choice articles to be found in this store is
the well known Eden Bank creamery
butter, probably the best butter made in
the Province, a fresh supply of which is
always kept on hand. Canned meats
fish, and fruit are shown in abundance
and are of the best brands. Biscuits,
cakes, candies, nuts, etc., can also be
had here, and fresh citron peel, lemon
peel, raisins and all kinds of spices are
offering.
A well assorted line of drygoods is al
ways to be seen at this store; boot and
shoes are ou tbe shelves in variety, also
rubber goods. The famous Hudson Bay
blanket is in evidence and finds a ready
sale. This firm carries hardware in
most of its branches, and saddles, etc.,,
are also handled. Thomas Brothers look;
upon it as a pleasure to be at your service, so don't hesitate about asking to;
i examine their stock.
Cook & Company.
■ This firm has also seen the advantagej
of having their business kept before the|
public eye, and attention is directed to
their announcement on page 3. This is
the pioneer store of Princeton, and al 1
though not so large as some others, a)
well stocked store in groceries, drygoSds'
hardware and general merchandise is
to be found, and those desiring any of
these will be well paid in giving this
firm a call. They make special mention
of their stock of rubber goods, a full
line of which is carried. Christmas toys
have not been overlooked, and the little
ones can have their dreams realized if
their parents will call at this store. A
small stock of wearing apparel for the
gentler sex is also kept. Cook & Co.
will appreciate a call from you.
J. B. Campbell, Druggist.
The citizens of Princeton are justly
proud of their drug store and of the man
who has shown his enterprise in furnishing for the benefit of the public such
an uptodate pharmacy in our midst.
The City Drug Store carries a stock unequalled in any town in the interior
of British Columbia, and anyone in need
of attention in this line can rest assured
of receiving the best that monev can buy.
Mr. Campbell carries as a side line an
assortment of the very latest things in
manicure sets, toilet sets, fancy perfumes,
and atomizers, as well as a complete
stock of children's 1 oys. He is showing
a special lot of Lowney's chocolates, done
up in the most bewitching packages imaginable, which   baffle   description.     If
the covering is an indication of the contents, there is a treat in store for anyone
who buys them. Handkerchief cases,
card cases, cigar cases, dainty Xmas
cards, fancy and humorous post cards are
here in profusion and of the newest patterns. Fancy stationery can be had also.
The finest pipes, tobacco and cigars can
be seen and it is no trouble for Mr.
Campbell to show 3'ou his goods.
If you are in search of a suitable and
welcome present for father, mother, sister, brother, your wife or sweetheart,
drop in at the City Drug Store and make
your wants known, and if you don't get
what you want, it wont be Campbell's
fault.

XMAS TEEE  ENTEBTAINMENT.
- The Xmas-tre&-enlertainment will take
place in the Court House on Friday evening next, the 21st inst. and promises to
be a most enjoyable affair for both old
and young. Santa Claus has sent word
that he will be on hand with his whiskers and presents enough and to spare,
and many a little heart will sweil with
joy when the Xmas tree groaning under
its load of good things is presented to
view. The programme to be presented
by the older ones promises to be all that
could be desired. Mrs. Waterman and
several other local vocalists are down for
a number, and if you want to enjoy, yourself and help the kiddies to the same be
sure and take in the entertainment.

Jack Thynne, the well known rancher
on the Nicola road, left on Sunday last
on a visit to tbe old sod, and will spend
Christmas at the home of his boyhood
days. A large number of his friends
made the event an excuse for a surprise
party on the Thursday evening previous
and Jack was wished all kinds of nice
things on his trip.
COPPER    MOUNTAIN
Property Bonded by the   Dominion Copper Co.—Work
to Start at Once.
E. F. Voigt Puts Through Deal with
This Big Company—No Means will
be Spared in Development.
E. F. Voigt returned from Vancouver
on Sunday, after an absence of several
weeks, and he brings back with him
good news to the people of Princeton.
He has bonded group No. r4, comprising
three claims and a fraction, situated on
;Copper mountain, to the Dominion Cop-
.per Co., a corporation of sound financial
standing and at present operating in the
Phoenix, Deadwood, Wellington, and
Summit camps. James Lindsay made a
report on the group 14 a few months ago
and it was upon his recommendation
that the deal was made. Representatives
,of the Dominion Copper Co. are ex
pected to arrive in Princeton at once
when arrangements will be made to start
development work immediately and a
force of men will be Dut to work.
If this property turns out as good as
expected, it will mean more to Princeton
than may seem at first sight. What has
been lacking in the past has been the
lack of money and enterprise to take
bold and show the value of the copper
deposits in this section. Once this is
done, any amount of money will be
found ready and willing to come in and
take a chance.
! Mr. Voigt has stayed with Coppe?'
mountain for a good many years, at no,
small expense, never wavering in his belief that she would come to her own, and
it is to be hoped that success has at last
crowned his labors.
THE FIBEMEN'S BALL.
The date for the firemen's hall has
been set the 2nd of January and the committee in charge are sparing no paius to
•make it a huge success. Excellent music
has been secured for the occasion, and a
lunch will be served at midnight.. Qmite
a number of Hedleyites have announced
their intention to be present. The
proceeds will be devoted to purchasing
necessary apparatus for the brigade,
and its the duty of every citizen to dig
up the price of a ticket and show you^
appreciation of the Volunteer Fire Bri-
Brigade.
Word reached Princeton on Sunday of
the finding of an Indian woman hanged
to a tree in the vicinity of Aspen Grove.
From what could be learned it appears
the woman was a. Boston Bar Indian and
becoming tired of this" strenuous life
committed, suicide.

REVISED   CUSTOMS   TARIFF.
The revised customs tariff, upon
which the  Dominion   Government
has been working for   three   years
past, was presented   to   Parliament
on Thursday, Nov. 29th,   by  Hon.
Mr. Fielding, Minister of Finance,
and is made  up  of   three  separate
columns:    (1)   British* preferential
tariff.    (2) intermediate   tariff.  (3)
general tariff.    The first applies  as
at present to Great Britain and   the
British Colonies which  already enjoy its benefits.    It is not proposed
to bring the intermediate tariff into
use at once, but it will be held   for
the purpose of negotiation with foreign countries who may wish to do
business with   Canada   on   a   fair
scale, the idea being to hold it as a
standing offer to all  foreign  countries desiring  reciprocal   tariff   arrangements with the Dominion, by
which means it   is   hoped   that   a
large increase of Canadian markets
abroad may be secured.    The  general tariff applies, for   the  present,
to all foreign  countries  and  those
parts of the British   empire   which
have declined hitherto to trade with
Canada upon a reciprocal basis.
A flat  preference   rate   of   one-
third off in favor of Great Britain is
abandoned, each item in   the   customs classification being dealt with
individually.    The Finance   Minister reiterated  his desire   to   divert
•■trade as far as may be from foreign
into British channels, the new tariff
being formed 50   as   to   encourage
ths sale of British iron   and   steel
goods  in  this   country.    For   the
purpose of   convenience   the   new
tariff    abolishes   the   cumbersome
fractions, a   change   that   will   no
doubt be much appreciated by those
engaged in custom offices.    The intermediate tariff as a rule   is   about
10 per cent, less than   the   general
tariff schedule.   The surtax against
Germany is retained, with tbe hope
expressed   however   that   negotia-
tions*will lead to its withdrawal   at
an early date.
The duty, on agricultural implements is reduced from 20 to 17^
per cent.; on windmills from 25 to
20 per cent. The duty on unclean-
ed rice is wiped out. Oranges,
lemons and limes are placed on the
free list.    Thejsleel bounties are ex-
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The 10th ordinary general meeting of the British Columbia Electric Railway Co. Ltd. was held recently in London, and shows that
company to be in a most flourishing
condition. Speaking of the general
outlook in British Columbia, the
chairman made some interesting
and important references, from
which we briefly quote:
"In spite of the fact that British
Columbia had failed  to   secure   its
fair proportion of the development
and   confidence with   which   other
parts of Canada  had been   favored
by European capitalists, he had the
same unbounded faith in  its future
that he had always   had,   and   the
same complete confidence   that   the
Province was destined to  support a
large and   thriving   population    of
happy   people.     It  could   not   be
otherwise with a country possessing
such vast coal and iron ore deposits,
such magnificent  forests  and  such
unlimited    water     powers.        The
prosperity of  British Columbia bad
not   yet   begun.    *     *     *     The
prosperity    of    British     Columbia
would date from the time   when   it
commenced    to   attract   capital   in
large sums from the old world   investing  countries.
charge was reproduced in other
Government organs, presumably
"with a view to making political
capital." The Daily News telegraphed Mr. Macdonald for an ex
planatiou of the case. His-reply is
brief aud to the point and entirely
exposes the malicious nature'of the
attack made upon him.

(Sgd.)      J. A. MACDONALD.
The   Cumberland Enterprise, referring to the  Premier's   statement
at Cobble Hill that the operation of
the new school.act is satisfactory to
the   public,   points   out    that   the
schools will cost the town of   Cumberland $1,800  this   year.    Under
the old act the city contributed   for
the support of the schools in   1905,
$664.65.    But in   1906   under   the
new act which McBride is so pleased with,    the  city   will   contribute
about $i,8oo.    How do   the   rate
payers like full   control?   asks   the
Enterprise.

^^ The people of
British Columbia would, therefore,
do well to think twice before they
sent forth to the world senseless resolutions and meaningless by-laws
of a threatening ' and antagonistic
nature to capital. * * * In
conclusion, he would add a'word of
caution. There was not a speculative boom at present in the Dom
inion.but he had not said there
was not going to be. The Canadian market had hitherto been
kept clean and wholesome, but
they were threatened, when money
got cheaper, with a deluge of promotions involving most of the
worst practices invented during the
Kaffir mania."
One of the first   things   that   a
stranger  finds   himself up  against
in coming to Princeton in search of
land is the absence of a   land office,
where reliable  information can    be
had, and annoying delays  and   unnecessary  expense  are   caused   on
that account.    Just fancy travelling
6o miles to Fairview,   the office for
this district, especially at this  time
of year  in   search    of  information
that should he  had   here.      If   we
had a real live member to represent
us, one who  would   make   it   his
business to look after the undivided
interests   of   the   constituency, we
might hope to  have   such    matters
brought to   the   attention   of   the
Government.     As   it   is, unfortunately, we are represented  by a man
\|vho   has   no   interests   here,  and
thefefore he does not bother himself
with the requirements of this section.
NOTICE.
The following is a fair sample of
the methods used by the press supporting that peculiar Conservative-
Socialist combination, the McBride
Government, in their feverish desire to cast reflections on the Liberals. It also shows how much reliance is to be placed on them. The
Nelson News nails the basest kind
of political lie, as follows: The
Cran brook Prospector editorially
charged that J. A. Macdonald, leader of the Opposition, had visited
Fernie during the coal strike with
a view to making political capital
out of the miners' misfortune. This
Grand Forks has troubles of its
own in the Hindus line. Hundreds
of these lean and lanky fellows
have found their way to that town
and are now busy freezing and
starving to death. If the man
who induced these people to flock
to British Columbia could be located, it might help some.

BEAR CREEK CAMP
Promises   to   Become    a Big
Dividend Payer   in the
Near Future.
The Province of the 6th inst. publishes
the following interesting piece of news:
Wbat is said by local mining men to be
one of the biggest strikes of high grade
ore made in British Columbia in recent
years in reported from Bear Creek this
morning in a letter received by W. H.
Armstrong, vice-president of the Similkameen Mining & Smelting Co., from the
mine superintendent. A week ago the
superintendent wrote that the vein had
widened from four to six feet and that a
decided change was coming in the formation. At that time he could not speak
with assurance as to the ultimate width,
as the change was not sufficiently pronounced. In the letter received this
morning however the ore has crossed the
foot-wall and the shaft is now in solid
high grade ore. The shaft is six feet
across and there is still two feet of ore to
the hanging wall, making a solid body
eight feet wide.
At the present rate of progress the
company will have at least half a million
dollars' worth of ore blocked-out within
the next six months, although the present works come under the head of exploration rather than mining. The exploration work is now in itself representing a handsome profit, assuring the fact
that when stoping and shipping commences Jthese profits can be increased
immediately Average assays show the
ore to run about seventy dollars per ton,
fifty dollars in gold and ten dollars each
in silver and copper.

A CLOSE SHAVE.
To be saved by a single shot from   his
"rifle from the death grasp of a big  black
bear was the thrilling experience of Ed.
Munroe of the Kettle Valley line railway
C^mp now  stationed   at   Lynch   Creek.
Last Saturday Munroe  was out hunting
, ifor deer, when all at once he came right
on top of a bear.    He had   two shots in
his rifle and fired one   of   them   at   the
bear which was not  more   than   fifteen
feet away.    The Shot took effect, but not
fatally, and the bear turned on the hunter    By this time   Munro   realized   the
seriousness of the situation and that his
life depended on  the  remaining shot, so
he carefully took aim and   fired   just   as
the bear was about .to rise   on   his   hind
legs to gi.vfevhis   victim   the   death   embrace.'- Fortunately for the   hunter   the
shot took effect, having   penetrated   the
bear's hear, and he fell dead at  his  captor's feet.    The   animal,  measured   over
six feet in length and weighed   over   six
hundred pounds.
Great difficulty is experienced in getting freight in especially over the Nicola
road the past few weeks. Annoying delays have caused a great deal of) inconvenience to merchants and others who
are dependent on freighters for their
source of supply. The bad state of the
roads prevent anything like time being
made, and some of the freighters refuse
to take their teams out.

Three wuULUieu named E. A. Eldridge,

employed the Government bridge across
the Thompson river iu*t west of Ashcroft,
■were drowned last week by being thrown
into the swift and icy waters, through
the breaking of a cable which held fast a
scow on which the men were working.
Seven men were thrown into the water,
two of whom managed to crawl quickly
to safety. Two others were rescued by
