ATTACK BOTH ENDS
Construction Begins at Cloverdale Eastward to the
Hope Range.
Bail Head is Said to be at MoIsoil
—Strenuous Railroad Building      >.
to Portland.
From authentic sources it is learned
that work has begun on the V., V. & E.
from Cloverdale east. The importance
of this statement may be realized in the
fact that* construction from both ends of
the route means a great saving of time in
the completion of the road. President
Hill made the announcement last summer at Winnipeg that he would have the
semi-transcontinental line from that city
to the coast built before any other line
and that means he must attack from both
ends. The beginning at Cloverdale is
welcome news.
The concentration of Mr. Hill's construction forces on the Portland-Seattle
line, in his fight with Harriman, has, no
doubt, affected progress on the V., V. &
E;, but the critical point in the battle will
soon be over and more attention to the
work here will follow.
F. H. Mann came  in   on Wednesday's
. stage from Midway and went but £o Mil
liken's  survey   camp,  where he will be
transitman.
Latest advices state that steel has been
laid to Molson. There is a shortage of
spikers but better progress is expected to
be made to Oroville.
In the event of the Similkameen route
being selected the'first contract to be let
will consist of about 50 miles of expensive tote road for hauling supplies over.
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
Pete Swanson and L. A. Manly returned on Sunday from their trip to the
Similkameen. They expressed the belief
that Princeton, with its abundant natural
resources and favorable location, will be
the future"''city in the Similicameen.—!
Midway Star.
Robert Stevenson, the pioneer prospector and explorer of the Similkameen,
has been suffering from the kick of' a colt
on the lumbar region of his back and is
scarcely* "able 'tJ5,'move' about. '"But for
a sound constitntion",JMr. Stevenson, who
is nearing the proverbial span of life,
would not be able to still search the hills
for the eqer-alluring metait'^^oNyteye^,
when the railroad comes his numerous
friends hope to find his permanent ad-f
Mress on Easy "street .'?
H. P. Christie,, assistant commissioner
lands and   works,   Ashcroft,   arrived in
Similkameen being one, and is now making tBe*BVst visit in connection with his
rfew duty. He left for' Otter Valley on
Tuesday, from there going on to Nicola

The intimation that a printer-journalist
would arrive last Saturday to work on the
Star proved to be premature. Whoever
the gentleman may be he is expected
to arrive today. The present incumbent
therefore bids him a cordial welcome.
Mr. Brown, lawyer from Vernon, was
in town this week on legal business.

hours conducted by-Rev. E. D. Smith
THE TULAMEEN HOTEL. '
The Tulameen ho el, erected by Geo.
McCoskery and brother duringthe past
summer, is soon to be opened to the
public. The building has good accom
modation for commercial men and the
travelling public geuerally. The proprietor's have shown by their enterprise'
<!hatthey have no doubt of the progress
of Princeton While the large and comfortable accommodation it affords may
be slightly in excess of present demands
there is warrant for it ih the bright prospects of irfcTea^ecl business in the near
future. George needs no introduction to
the public, being an old hotel man in the
Similkameen, and is well and favorably
known. ..Jjfie date of opening will be
announced by advertisement.

FRIENDLY RELATIONS.
The Spokesman-Review commenting
on the'recent visit of the Spokane Chamber of Commerce tg/th'e Boundary'says :
"That closer commercial union between
Spokane and B C. will result from the
tvlsit-of the Spokane business men to the
'rich country acrp'ss the boundary line is
a perfectly natural and reasonable sup
position. This peisonal intercourse will
tend to make stronger the friendly business relations which tiav'e' heretofore ex-
rstSoV; The1* western enterprise which is
f&sc&rng of Spokane a great city is in
hearty and sincere sympathy with the
spirit which is^inaking of the adjacent
countnji,$tie' of the greatest mineral producing regions of the -American conti-j
nent." Shl&e, cousiri", shake ! We want
your wide-awake men to come to Princeton and give poffiters oh ho«v,,{o build up
a'town. We Wtoft your friendship and
your capital. Above all we want you1
to impart' that spirit  which does things
MINES AND MINERALS
Mining Industry and Mineral
Resources Need Capital
to Develop.
Season was Fruitful in Discovery and
Only Fringe of Similkameen
Yet Touched.
Specimens of ore from Champion and
Eagle creeks, recently shown, contain
gold, silver and platinum. This section
of countryHte thought to be the source of
the placers on the Tulameen river. It
presents a fine field for close prospecting
which will, no doubt, well repay those in
search of high grade propositions.
W. C. McDougall is sinking on the
United Empire in expectation of stfik
ing the main ore body. The U.E. is a
vast proposition and Mr. ^McDougall is
energetically pushing the primary stages
of development on it so that shipping
may begin as soon as expected facilities
may offer.
T. A. Connolly came down from Otter
Flat last week on his way to Nighthawk
where he expects to be mining this win-
-feK : He has done a lot of development
and explorative-work this season on his
mineral properties. Like many other
owners he is waiting for transportation
to enable him to ship.
Joe Fitzharris has finished the summer's work on his mining claims above
©£f?er Flat and left for the coast last week
where he expects to put in the winter.
Joe has proved his mining properties to
be of undoubtedly rich ore, lacking the
one essential—a railroad—to make them
revenue producing.
Robert Stinson left about a week ago
for'Mt. Pleasant, aJ-s\iburb of Vancouver,
which address he expecis to adopt for the
next six months. He has valuable interests in mineral claims on Copper
mountain arid is patiently waiting for
the V.,V. & E'.'Vd bring about that general deveTBp^fftfSnt and progress of the
mining-industry which is sure to follow.
•When next Mr. Stinson comes to Princeton he hopes to ride behind one of Jim
Hill's "fiery steeds."
Messrs. French, Day and Tway exhibit
'scfrrie fine specitnens of galena which
th%3?€ilcTiv^red'while prospecting in the
Skagit country recently. They struck a
40-foot lead of it which could be traced
considerable distance. The- distance
from transportation is too great to make
locations.
The largest gold nuggets ever found
were the Welcome and Welcome Stranger. The 'first, weighing 2,217 onnces,
was found in Ballarat, Victoria ; and the
second, 2,268 ounces in! weight, was found
at Dunnolly, Victoria, in 1869.   In both
cases  the  fortunate   finder  nett
$40,000 bv one turn of the^pt^K.
C. F. Law, the^wSTl known Bear creek
mining niaffl has recently installed a
boile: and hoisting gear on the St.
George and Liverpool group and is also
erecting bunk and cook houses. Extensive development work will be carried
on.this winter.
Wages earned in the mining industry
for the month of August in the Boundary
reached the record total of $215,000.
The Dominion Copper Co. has nearly
400 men in its employ.
PERSEVERANDO VINCIT.
E. F. Voigt, of Voigt's camp, Copper
mountain, is proceeding wittt development of some of his mining properties
and has engaged practical miners for
that purpose. It is understood that Mr.
Voigt will tap his large ore bodies by a
tunnel driven from the Similkameen
river. This would give him immense
advantage over a shaft and the comparatively more expensive mode ot hoisting
ore through it. The tunnel, it is thought,
will be in ore for the greater part of a
mile and will help, if not altogether, pay
for itself with the output. Development
On a large scaleTisjalmost'prohibited unftl
the arrival:of the railroad and the cheapening of freight on heavy machinery.
Mr. Voigt has stayed with Copper mountain for some seven years and expended
a fortune in the camp. His undaunted
perseverance amid the opposing forces of
nature and humanity is deserving of success, which no one will begrudge. The
undoubted merit of some of the copper-
gold properties in Voigt's camp has been
vouched for by experts and others; and
as:with;Uie whole of iGopperihnountain,
a smelter is all that is required to prove
them wealth producing.    .
ASLEEP SIX YEARS.
Illustrative of the great tenacity of life
with which frogs are'endowed one of
these croakers has recently come Back to
activeiiliie after being in a statcofjeoma
for nigh four months. His habit for the
last three springs has been to take up
residence in the cool shade under the
'piazza' of the Star office. Frogs must
have moisture to enable them to toddle
around, lacking- this oun.jbatrachian
friend took a snooze in the beginning
of the recent great drouth from which
he did not awaken for over three months.
It took several rain showers to bring him
"to" but now he bobs up every afternoon
with a low, guttural song, which with
the buzz: of the bee and the fizz of the
flea, make things quite lively around the
fixed Star. Yes, a railroad is needed at
once to put an end to the six years'
snooze of trie toadies and the f(t)ogies.
Frogs have been known to live over a
hundred years and fogies always outlive.-

EFFECTS OF ADVERTISING.
The proved beneficial results from
judicious advertising by the Dominion government in attracting multitudes of first class immigrants to
Canada is well worth a trial by
townsite companies, who, it is supposed, wish to attract people to invest in their real estate property.
•Whether from motives of economy.
,spite, indifference, or out of pure
ignorance, recently it has been noted
that a moribund c ombination in
Princeton has ceased advertising in
the Star. To say the least, such a
step reflects unfavorably on the enterprise and business calibre of the
managerial and directorial outfit
here. It also does an injustice
and injury to those who have
bought property here on the glowing invitations held out in the advertisement formerly running in
this paper. However rich a town
or country may be in natural resources it is possible to seriously
retard its development by a picayune policy similar to that instanced
above. Had it not been for liberal
advertising by the Dominion government the west would still have
been a great lone land. The following from Canada's greatest journal is to the point :
" It is gradually dawning on our
friends south  of the line that Canada  is  potentially another United
States, and  that  at the end of the
: century  there   may   be as great a
population in the Dominion as there
is in the republic today.    The methods adopted  by the L,aurier government   to    attract     settlers   are
praised  unreservedly by American
experts who have been looking into
the question of the rapid settlement
of the Canadian  west.    Wilbur G.
Miller,   a   Washington journalist,
who has been  touring in the west,
says  in  the  Editor and Publisher
that " Canada is undergoing a transformation.     Printer's   ink  is   the
lever  by  which  the work is being
accomplished.     Every  portion   of
the  Dominion  from coast to coast
and  from the  49th to  almost the
52nd  parallel is throbbing with a
vitality that  promises to make it a
counterpart  of the  United States.
Of course there have been prosperous cities., rich   agricultural lands,
abundant   forests    and    minerals,
splendid climate,   great irailroads,
big game, and magnificent scenery.
Some of these have beenin^exist-
ence for centuries. It remained,
however, for an enterprising Government to utilize the dominant
force in civilization to bring to public notice the great resources of an
empire. Well is the work being
done, for no other country on the
face of the globe is receiving the
advertising that Canada is getting.
No other government than the one
to the north of us has ever before
adopted such a policy of publicity;
nor has any corporation before
operated a plan of land exploitation
so untiringly, effectively and elaborately."
When the Tories sullenly criticize
the Liberal immigration policy, and
declare that primarily the credit for
the opening up of the west must go
to the party that completed the first
Canadian transcontinental, the obvious answer is that the Canadian
Pacific railway was in operation for
over ten years before 1896, and that
printers' ink is bringing more people into the Canadian west every
two years than the Tory Immigration department brought in between
1885 and 1896."
Advertising has undoubtedly been
the mightiest agency in western development and it is false economy
and shallow policy for a townsite
company to withdraw its advertisement from the local paper. The
spirit of the age is publicity.
Every progressive town has its
newspaper and is patronized by live
townsite people. Dry rot has surely
set in when a townsite company
orders its advertisement to stop.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Lord Strathcona has predicted
that Canada will have a population
of 80,000,000 before the close of
the twentieth century. There are
young Canadians who will live long
enough to see whether the prophecy
is likely to be fulfilled. Its fulfilment would not be more wonderful
than the developments that have
made up the history of Canada in
the 86 years of Lord Strathcona's
busy life. If the prediction had
been made in 1820 that the little
struggling colonies of Upper and
Lower Canada would develop into
a Dominion stretching from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, and that the
supposed frozen wastes of the
Northwest would be gridironed
with railways and would be attracting settlers from all parts of the
world, it would have been .considered quite as sanguine a forecast as
the prediction which Lord Strathcona has made.
