Princeton First, Last and Always.
Published in the interest of Princeton and Similkameen district.

SIGNIFICANT REMARKS
Made by Mining Magnate on Labor
Situation in Province—Reduced
Wage Hinted at.
W. D. Matthews, president of the Canadian Consolidated Milling and Smelting
Company, who was at the coast lately, in
company with Sir Thomas Shaughnessy,
had something to say on the labor conditions of the provinch which is worthy
of note. He stated that British Columbia should be interested in having labor
conditions which would enable capital
ists to meet on equal terms, and the ex
isting conditions were exactly the opposite from what should prevail. In face
of this fact there had been a depression
in business along.lines in which the province was interested making the situation
increaingly difficult. Silver had recently
dropped seven cents per ounce, lead had
gone down $15 per ton, and copper was
12 cents below former quotations. The
lumber business was also uncertain. Taking all these facts into account there
must shortly be a readjustment of wages
to meet the changed conditions and the
sooner this necessity was realized and accepted by all classes the better -iti-would
be for the future of the province.
It is quite certain that on the expiration of the present scale of wages agreement a great many) if not all, the mining
companies in the province will announce
their inability to keep up the present
scale and will ask their men to work on
a reduced scale.
more than a decade that ii" has been pub
lished. Newspaper payrolls, however,
cannot be met without lh£ full suppdritipf
the community, and, as that has not
been forthcomng, 'It^is deemed wise to
cease running a daily before the sheriff
has an opportunity of taking advantage
ofthe situation."
The defunct newspaper was established
by Mr. John R. Reavis, and later passed
under the control of Mr. F. Augustus
Heinze, the Butte copper king, then operating at Rossland and Trail. As his
mouthpiece it waged a bitter fight against
the C. P. R. The editorial chair has
been filled by several brilliant men, including C. E. Race and Col. Egan.
THE FINANCIAL  CRISIS
ROSSLAND MINER  EXPIRES.
The Rossland Miner, a daily which for
the past ten years has rendered a valuable service in exploiting the mineral resources of British Columbia, and especi
ally of the Kootenays, suspended publication on Tuesday last. The reasons for
this action are best given in its own
words: "Because of the fact that a large
number of business men of Rossland do
not believe in advertising, and apparently have no interest in supporting a daily
newspaper, the Rossland Miner will today suspend publication. * * * Out
of nearly ioo separate and distinct places
of business in this city, including hotels,
not more than 30 advertise in the local
paper. The Miner has been unceasing
in its efforts to advance the welfare of
the city in which it is published. No
newspaper office in the Dominion pays
higher wages than the Miner, and next
to the mines, its disbursements for wages
rank first. The suspension of the Daily
Miner is most regrettable, from the
standpoint of the best interests of the city
and of the mining industry generally of
Kootenay and Yale, and we sincerely believe this paper has done much to upbuild and foster, the  industry during  the
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
It is estimated that the coal* output of
the United States will amount hits year
to $ 550,000,000, the pig-it on product to
5450,000,000 and the copper to $200,000,-
000. .    .   ?&$

In the United States Commented
by  Leading Financier—Hard
Times Predicted.
on
The financial crisis existing in the
United States is having its effect' felt in
the business world, and before confidence
is restored hard times will likely occur.
Major Henry Higginson, a leading banker of Boston, says regarding the financial
situation: "The financial conditions existing to day are due to a combination of
causes. Chief among them is the publicity given the methods of some of the
large operators and ihe fear engendered
by the big stick policy of the administration. We are right in the midst now
of a panic worse than the panic of 1893,
so far as the stock market is concerned.
It has lasted longer. I look to see it
effect industrial conditions. It may not
go to the extreme of hard times, but I
look to see that. I look to see business
dull and times slack The amount of
money and the amount of money must
■be equalized no matter how painful the
'process, if we want the financial conditions straightened out."
The London Morning Post believes
that the financial troubles in America are
■accumulating too rapidly for temporary
palliatives to have much effect, and it
would, be better for everyofle concerned
that the crisis should be hastened instead of delaved.      {ml
The. Daily Mail reminds its readers
$$8$ tnere is no need to suspect the sound
American banks. This paper says there
is a wide gulf between the conservative
American banks and modern trust de-
fejKlopment. It is the speculators who
aire tumbling in the debacle, and their
fall gradually is clearing the atmosphere. Even the soundest concerns may
be temporarily affected, the paper says,
but it would be an absurd error to suppose that because some reckless gamblers
are in difficulties, the United States, from,
a financial and commercial point of view;''
is going to pieces.
What's  the  matter with   the   firemen

FROM OLD  CARIBOO.
R, Stevenson returned on Sunday last
from Cariboo after an absence of six
weeks, and says he is glad to j he back in
Princeton again. While there he met
several ol his old friends of the days of
the great Cariboo gold excitement in
rhe *6o's, when Williams creek thronged
with thousands of gold seekers from all
parts of the world. Out of the origiual
ninety who invaded Cariboo in 1862, but
three remain—Robt. Stevenson, W. Hod-
inson and Jno. Pinkerton, the two latter
being residents of Barkerville. When
these three met, after   a   separation   of
years, the scene can be better imagined
than described. Mr. Stevenson visited
the grave of his old friend and partner of
forty years ago, "Cariboo' Cameron and
noted the resting place of other old
friends of pioneer days when law and order was maintained by the iron hand of
the late Chief Justice Begbie. To commemorate the occasion of their meeting the three remaining links of the advance guard of 62, Messrs. Stevenson,
Hodinson and Pinkerton, had their pictures taken in a group, which they will
cherish to the last day. At a dinner held
by them tales of the strenuous days oif
okl were told and toasts were drunk in
silence to the memories of comrades
long since gone to their reward.
Mr. Stevenson's object in making the
trip was to hunt for a large mica deposit
he discovered forty years ago on Snow-
shoe mountain. Although he spent some
17 days in the search he was unsuccessful
Next July he intends going back and
renewing his efforts and he is confident
of ultimate success.
Parliaments Called.
The Dominion Government will be
called for business next month,and from
present indications the session will be a
short one. No doubt a great deal will be
heard about Asiatic immigration and its
solution. The Conservatives are hoping*
to make a great deal of political capital
out of it in the hope of defeating the
Government at the next election, which
will likely be held next March,
i The Provincial Government has been
called for dispatch of business on Janu--
ary 15th, and the all-absorbing Asiatic,
question gives promise of being the chief
topic there also. Premier McBride has
been asked to resign by the anti-Asiatic
leagues of Vancouver and Victoria or
else force the Lieut.-Governor to make
law the exclusion bill of last session.
So there promises to be liye}y times in
both houses. The public wiil watch with
interest the outcome.
Ruined by Woman's Tongue.
"Heinze ruined by woman's tongue."
Those five words, report says, carry the 1
predictions made years ago in Montana
when he first became a financial and
political power. To those who were
wont to burn the midnight oil until the
wee small hours of the morning; to those
who found joy in-.burni«g the candle at
both ends and to the night cabbies and
all-night hawks, Heinze was known as a
Shrewd man, but he carried the brand
that spells downfall—susceptibility to the
gay wiles of feminity.

HYPOCRITICAL CANT.
(Toronto   Globe.)
In the midst of the last general
election Mr. Borden made the public announcement that  those   contributing to the Conservative  campaign fund need not look for  Government favors  as   a   return.    He
has since had a  good  deal  to   say
about electoral  purity, and a western admirer, ih View of   these  self-
righiteous claims, applied to him the
words in which the poet  spoke   of
Sir Galahad,   "My strength   is   as
the strength   of  ten, because   my
heart is pure."    The   same   paper
went on to say:    "If Borden carries
the next Dominion  election   it will
he bbecausedeep down in the hearts
of the electors there is an ineradicable though sometimes  suppressed
sentiment   ih   favor   of   truth   as
against falsehood, straightforwardness as against chicanery, integrity
as  against  graft."     It  is   painful
even tdfii 'ftoliticaljppponent to  find
these tableaux of Mr, Borden as the;,
renouncer of the snares, and lures of
the world, Mr. Borden as Sir Galahad, Mr. Borden as the personification of truth', sirs^fgntforahess   and
inregrity,"sjidiienl^fade into  noth;
ingness before one straight shaft of
honest   light.     Mr.   Pugsley   has
made the charge that at   least $25,-
008 frOmC&itside went   into   Nova
Scotia ' constituency  and   that   at
least balf a   million   dollars   were
subscribed hr that election by a few
rich5 men to carry the constitueWcfe's''
try tfiWsea.J   Even 'jf"'it were   not
Known that Mr. Borden had a more
certain knowledge of the existence
of this; fund, it would re!ju'ire' a  lot
of faith in- his present declarations
to believe that any suchl'sum as this
cofirld be injectedvint6 the constituencies in bis own .immediate neighborhood without his  knowledge—
without the knowledge of the leader of the Conservative party.    He
ma^F bb told af once that tlie people,
oFtms country are not so simple as
t<^.tjelj<iye o story of this kind.   His
very silence in  face  of Hon,   Mr.
Pugsley's challenge wirl~"be  taken
as a-confession that he cannot apny,
the'charges made. |^
One-can conceive of such charges*
being treated with silence if ~tSey
emahat'ed from some obscure perr
sonage in the Liberal ranks, but
when they are preferred   by a  gen
tleman who is one of   the   leading
lawyers of the Dominion, the former Premier of   his province, and at
this moment  holding   one   of   the
most   important   and    responsible
portfolios iu the Dominion Cabinet,
it is useless for Mr. Borden to   attempt to put the  matter  down   by
ignoring it.    A refusal to   accept
Mr. Pugsley's challenge is a virtual
acknowledgment that  the   accusation is well founded and cannot  be
denied.      Sir   Galahad's   strerigur
was as the strength of ten, not ;..b<W
cause his  heart was pure, but,..be-
cause he had a half million corruption fund at his back  to   pull   his
supporters through.
In view of this what shall be said
of the man who has made  the  corruption  of   his opponents the chief
theme  of  his  denunciation ?   i He
professes to  be  burning with  zeal
for electoral purity, nor does he approach it in the character of a convert.    There are no confessions, no
references to past   peccadilloes   on
his part or on the part of any of his
lieutenants.    His cry for   electoral
purity is  wholly occasioned, so   he
would have us believe, by the wickedness   of   his   opponents.      This
would be called hypocrisy, a vice of
character that   has  ever   been   regarded as one of the most odious of
which a public man can te  guilty.
The cause of   political   purity will
never be forwarded by hypocritical
pretences that evil practices  appertain wholly to one  side while   the
other is angelically free from them.
Mr. Borden knew of 500,000  reasons that contradicted this view, and
;his jpretended zeal for purity ;n elections must therefore be regarded as
cant, or is at all events  of very recent birth:

Copper Co. and the Dominion Co. interests is likely to effected before long, according to Grand Forks advices. A
meeting of all the high officials of both
companies is to be held in the Boundary
in a few days when the matter will
likely be settled. The low price of copper and a certainty of success with combined interests have led to this final step
of the two big companies.

The printers in Canada will be unable
to take advantage of the printers' home
at Colorado Springs, Col., which they
help to maintain. A printer from Canada who had all the necessary papers to
have him admitted to the home was
turned back at Port Huron, Mich., a few
days ago because of the law which went
into effect on July i prohibiting the entrance into the United States of all people unfit to earn a living, through sickness or other causes. This will probably
mean within a short time the erection of
a home for Canadian printers.
