PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
T-WEEXLY MAIL SEBVICE.
rR. Greenfield, P. O. inspector, was
Princeton Wednesday in his official
capacity and also for the purpose of accumulating such data as will enable him
to report on the best route for another
mail a week to Princeton. As a result of
his investigation a tri-weekly mail service will be established in about a month
which is expected to answer all requirements until the daily train is inaugurated by the completion of the railway
to this point. Mr. Greenfield, was appointed inspector on the death of his
predecessor, a well deserved promotion
after thirty-three years' service in the
post office department of Canada. He
v is thoroughly conversant with every de-
I tail of postal work. After the recent
!? mail robbery on the C.P.R. he had all the
petty losses, amounting to #15.50, checked
and his report posted to Ottawa within
two days of the occurrence, which is
proof of a very efficient state of organiz
ation. Mr. Greenfield was a printer in
the employ of Hunter, Rose & Co. in
Quebec-for some years, there learning to
decipher hieroglyphic writing which in
his life occupation has been of great use
in reading indistinct addresses on letters.
RAPID RISE IN VALUE.
- W. H. Thomas, has sold his farm of
320 acres on tbe south bank of the Similkameen, about a mile and a half from
town, to C. M. Kingston and B. Lequime,
of Grand Forks, for the sum of #10,000.
The railroad line runs through it and it
is a most accessible property from any
point of communication, having two
bridges along thr river which afford con -
nectiqn with the hub of the district—
Princeton. This land affords a very striking illustration of the increase in values
caused by the construction of a railway.
At one time it was sold for #10, again it
was offered at #200 and refused, later it
was purchased for #300; now, after about
ten years, it reaches the comforting sum
above quoted. It is an indication of the
great potentialities at work in this new
country paving the way for great industries and large towns. Mr. Thomas has
earned his good luck and is now in a position to win some more of it by judicious
investment in town or suburban pro-
^perty. ItJJs not known what the pur.
chasers intend doing with the property,
but as they are keen business men it is
not likely they will hold it long.
SEARCHING FOR PASS
Pathfinders in Hope Mountains
Explore for Better Defile
for Railway.
Eailway Committee  will Beport on
Disputed Right-of-Way—Grade
Being Finished.
Messrs. Baldwin and Amburn, railway
engineers, left last Saturday with Luke
Gibson as guide to explore the upper
reaches of the Tulameen river and the
Hope mountains. It is understood that
the engineers will endeavor to find a
lower pass than the Coquihalla, which
has been already surveyed but found to
*be expensive in construction and operation. How far the present explorations
will extend is not known, but it is said
that a thorough reconnaisance of everv
known pass, including the Skagit, will
be made. In any case two more secretive'
and reliable pathfinders than the gentlemen named could not be obtained anywhere and if a better pass exists they will
find it.
The railway committee meets today at
Ottawa when the right of-way dispute at
Hedley will be heard and finally disposed of. Whatever the decision may-be
it is not at all probable that the interests
of the country and Hedley will be sacrificed to appease the blind infatuation
of grafter monopolists.
Contractors between Midway and Oroville are paying off their men as they
finish grading. Until the end of the
track is nearer new work farther west it
is not probable sub-contractors will be
anxious to take fresh contracts in view of
the longer haul of'supplies.
There is a great scarcity of railway
laborers at present which has made it
necessary to send an employment agent
to the big cities of Europe to procure the
help required.
SCHOOL VACATION.
The school closing exercises prior to
the summer vacation will take place on
Friday, June 29th, in the court house at
8 p.m. A good programme is being prepared, including Mr?. Jarley's waxworks
and other attractions. No charge for
admission will be made but any contribution towards incidental expenses will
be welcome and may be paid to Miss
Schon or any of the trustees.
The Victoria Colonist in a long editorial treats the Star's article very airily
which referred to statements made in the
press as to outlaws residing here. It is
no laughing matter to have aspersions
cast upon a respectable community and
the staid, old Colonist ought to set a better example to its younger confreres.
So long, Bro, Gosnell.
At a meeting held under Presbyterian
auspices on Tuesday evening the following board of managers was elected : Murdoch, McDougall, Bell, Hunter and
Wright. First meeting of the board will
be held Monday night. -
P. D. McDonald, brother of J. McDonald on Five-Mile, has been awarded
the contract of installing an electric light
plant at Ladner.
NUBIAN GROUP DEAL
Report Made   and Capital is
Assured when Testing
is Completed.
Prominent   Financiers   and   Expert
Mining Men will Examine
the Property.
W. Dawson McGregor, M.E., of Victoria, arrived in Princeton recently on a
professional visit and will be here for
some considerable time. He is immediately concerned with the Nubian group
of mineral claims on Kennedy mountain
which J. F. Leland has at considerable
labor and undaunted'hope brought to
the notice of financiers. It is intended
to install an ore testing plant to ascertain
correct average values of the Nubian,
Brooklyn, Magnetic and Ingersoll Bell,
which constitute the Nubian group. On
the favorable result of the tests capital
is ready to proceed with development of
the Nubian and the construction of a
smelter. Other properties will be examined and tested with a view to purchase and operation. The ore testing
apparatus is an innovation in this section
and seems a common sense and busines-
like method of determining values and
smelting qualities of large quantities of
ore at or in the vicinity of a mine. Mr.
Leland is deserving of every credit for
having persevered in spite of knocks and
discouragement for thus far having been
instrumental in combining capital and
skill looking to the development of vast
hidden wealth. The Star will be pleased
to report progress of the undertaking and
bids the promoters godspeed.
LOOKING FOB INFORMATION.
Editor StAr—Sir: As a prospector
and one who is interested in mineral
properties in this district I would like to
know why the Dominion geologist sent
into this district to examine and report
on the country from Ashnola to the international boundary has not begun in
that section. I believe I am right in
saying that no -other part of the country
is so much in need of scientific investigation and from which greater results
are promised. I understand the country
referred to was the destination of the
party but it seems that another section
is to receive first attention.
Prospector.
G. Evert Baker arrived on Revely's
flyer on Wednesday and went to Copper
mountain on Thursday. He will go to
Pilot Bay in East Kootenay, where he
is much interested in the new double
blast Blanchard-Williams furnace which
smelts with raw. coal and is being tested
there.
ASPEN GROVE NOTES.
Forty-three copper mining claims, including six groups, changed hands this
month in Aspen Grove camp. The
vendors are Bates Bros. & Co., who have
disposed of their extensive mining interests to a big Montreal and Toronto syndicate who have floated "Copper, Limited " with a large capitalization.
The C.P.R. is rushing construction
from the Nicola valley toward Aspen
Grove copper deposits.
A solid piece of metallic or native copper, weighing 675 lbs., was recently shipped from the Sovereign to Montreal.
Fifteen miners are now working on the
Sovereign group and have a lot of high
grade copper sacked and ready for ship- -
ment when transportation is available.
. Copper experts who have examined the
camp declare that Aspen Grove is as
rich in copper as Cobalt is in silver.
On the 13th inst. there was quite a joyful gathering of wives, prospectors, miners, ranchers, sweethearts and beans at
the new school house. A good purpose
was served by the dance which was to
procure out of the proceeds a supply of
lead pencils and bamboo canes for the
use of the scholars and the popular teacher. The dance netted $38, which sum
was duplicated by the McCullough's who
did not patronize it. Supper was served
at a large camp fire, a la mode.
TOTTR OF INSPECTION.
Judge Tunstall, S.M., and gold commissioner for Yale district paid his annual official visit to Princeton, one of the
sub-agencies, last Saturday, coming via
Nicola on the stage. He is pleased with
the outlook for increased development,
of the mines since the railroad is no
longer a matter of doubt or conjecture.
He has watched the progress of British
Columbia for nearly fifty years and thinks
the present is the most encouraging time
of all. Every day is pregnant with some
new scheme for the development of our
vast natural resources. Prosperity is
general and contentment is the rule.
The Judge is asialwart, skookum 'young'
man of over seventy years. He was one
of a large party of goldhunters that
hiked across the plains to Cariboo, 200a
miles, in the early sixties. In the service of his country he has given every
satisfaction under all kinds of governments and is popular with the public.
Tfie Judge was accompanied by his son,
Dr. Tunstall, of Kamloops, who was delighted with Princeton and the illimitable possibilities of the Similkameen as a
whole.  They returned on Sunday's stage.
The increasing demand for copper and
the fact that no substitute has been found
for it for electrical purposes proves that
the copper age is at hand. The Similkameen is the iargest^ copper bearing district in Canada and. is believed to be the
^richest*.

IMPROVE TOWN PROPERTY.
"Everything comes to those who
wait." That is an old truism often
misconstrued and misapplied. The
waiting here implied does not mean
sitting idly by and waiting on the
efforts of others to increase values
hoping thereby to acquire an unearned profit. True prosperity cannot rest, upon such a basis. In
Princeton there is a large amount
df> real estate held by "non-residents
who make no effort to improve it
and will not sell except at exorbitant prices. A do-nothing policy
is the most effective way of strangling a young town that can be
found. Of course there, is no law
to compel .a man to sell or improve
his property : the remedy lies only
in conditional purchase or sale
'from the original owners. In the
absence of any safeguard to prevent locking property up from sale
or improvement probably the next
best step would be municipal incorporation. Some pressure might
then be imposed in assessment
on unimproved property which-
would be beneficial.
There is too much real estate in
Princeton held for purely speculative purposes—too many persons
are acting as the dog in the manger.
While these conditions obtain there
is bound to be depression and tardy
growth. The building and improvements now going on are most welcome signs of confidence in the
future but there is no inspiration
in a vacant and unimproved lot.
Most eligible business property on
:the main streets stand today as they
were created, without a vestige of
.improvement. The least owners
could do is to ^clear or fence them
thus adding to the appearance of
the -lots in the absence of build-'
ings. And wherever paint or whitewash can be used .with good effect
it should not be spared, thus adding
to that picturesque natural beauty
which so tends to enhance values.
Jjstreet and road improvements are
valuable assets and cannot .fail to
return money judiciously -spent
many fold over. The cleanliness
and attractive appearance of a town
stamps indelibly on the minds cf
visitors a desire to know more
. about  it  with a  possible view to
residence or investment.
The final disposition of the railway location through Princeton relieves the town of an embarrassing
question. Until that matter was
disposed of there was an unrest
among property owners which militated ^against the progress of the
town. Indeed it was often made
the excuse for delay in buildings and
other improvements. There is a
great dearth of dwellings here at
the present moment. People who
would become residents hesitate because of a scarcity of suitable
houses. There is, therefore, splendid opportunity for investment in
dwelling houses, residential lots
being fair priced in all parts of the
town. Business structures are also
in demand.
-;1K)TES AND COMMENTS.
Dominion Day, the great national
holiday of Canada, is drawing near,;
falling on Sunday, one week from
tomorrow. Where celebrations are
to be held the following day, Monday, will be observed. As Princeton has not made any strenuous
effort to celebrate with, sports or
fireworks it would not be inappropriate to mark the loyalty and appreciation of the day by citizens
assembling in the open air and hear
a patriotic oration. This could be
supplemented by singing the national anthem and such other patriotic airs as might be suggested ending with loyal cheers for the King.
The total foreign trade of Canada
for the year ending 30th June will
reach the enormous figure of $550,-
000,000, an increase of about $80,-
000,000 over the former year.
There was an increase of $3,789,-
701 in mineral exports.
When Premier McBride and Com
missioner Green address an audience they do not stint the taffy
which they make on the spot to suit
the particular locality which they
are visiting. When in Princeton
last fall with Mr. Shatford, M P.P.,
they handed out great chunks of
the sickening stuff to the audience
and then proceeded to help each
other to some. Mr. Shatford said
he brought the railway to the Similkameen, now the premier is over
at Wilmer giving taffy and railways
to the people there. Hear him :
" I know you want the railway,
" (Kootenay Central). You want
" it badly. You deserve it, you
" need it, you have a right to it and
" your resources justifies and de-
"mandit. And you shall have a
" railway, and I see no reason why
"you should not have two rail-
" ways. It will not be so very
" long until you will have two rail-
" ways." Dick, the Jollier, carries
a good supply of nerve wherever
he goes, but his political days are
numbered .and soon will be at an
jend.
