FAVOES LABOR PARTY.
*•"
n
Other Countries Awakening to the
Necessity of Organization
Political.
Editor Star—Jir : While I am not
a voter in this country I would feel it my
duty to become one if a genuine Labor
party should be organized. It is much
the same here as in Uncle Sam's, or
"God's," country — the poor man is
crowded to the wall and the big trusts
and corporations take everything ihey
can get their claws on. But for the foreign element in the United States there
would have been a Labor party in the
field long ago. Wheie there is such a
diversity of tongues there is difficulty in
getting workingmen united upon a plan
of operation. However, as this foreign
element becomes educated and assimilated with the good American there will
be nothing in the way of organizing a
political labor party. There must be a
Labor party there to obtain the rights of
the working classes or there will have to
be another civil war; that is the conclusion of all serious minded men who
know the condition the poor man is kept
in for the purposes of graft by the corporations.
I am pleased to see that in England
the bloodless method of obtaining the
rights of the laborers is making good progress. The first laboringman has been
admitted into the ministerial cabinet of
the Liberal party, which must have been
a great shock to. the musty aristocracy
and the so-called nobility, Then there
are more than a dozen Labor members ot
Parliament who have shown themselves
to be the equal of all comers in debate
and legislative ability. In France Labor
Is asserting its rights and with the help
of other parties is being emancipated
from the priests, the capitalists and a
non-producing nobility. Germany, Russia and other countries where autocracy
and tyrrany prevail are doing little for
the bettering of the condition of the laborers, but the seeds of revolution are
beginning to sprout there and the downfall of an effete system is not to be long
delayed.
There are a lot of my compatriots
(Americans) . in the Similkameen who
would gladly join a labor party but who
hesitate to join either of the two big par
ties. I hope that immediate steps will be
taken to form a Labor party and issue a
manifesto to the workers of B. C. Labor
is broad enough to include people of all
nationalities, it is deep enough to get at
the root of oppression aud wrong, it is
the only way to oppose the greedy, all-
devouring corporations who have a
cinch on the old political, parties. Let
there be a Labor party in every country,
state and province.   Yours truly,
LABORITE.

CRUISE OF THE NEPTUNE.
The Star has received a handsomely
bound edition of the report on the Dominion Government expedition to Hudson
Bay and the Arctic Island on board the
D. G S. Neptune, by A. P. Low, director
of the geological survey, and issued from
the Dominion Government printing
office. The report contains a narrative of the voyage of the D. G. S
Neptune, during the seasons 1903 04, to
the northern parts ot Hudson bay, and to
the northeastern Arctic islands. Following this, under their respective headings,
are a short historical account of- earlier
explorations and discoveries in northeastern Arctic America; a geographical sketch
together with summaries of what is at
present known of the inhabitants and
geology of the unorganized northeaste n
territories of the Dominion; short descriptions of the important whaling and seal
ing industries; and opinions as to the
possible navigation of Hudson strait and
Hudson bay.
The edition is profusely illustrated
throughout and altogether the publication is highly interesting and instructive.
A large map is included showing corrections in the coastline and marks the
course followed-by the Neptune.
CARD OF THANKS.
To the electors who gave me such cordial receptions and to those who gave
me their support in the recent political
contest in Similkameen riding, I wish to
express my sincere thanks and appreciation. A vote in a good cause, though it
does not triumph at the moment, is not
thrown away. SMITH CURTIS.
Feb. 4th   1907.
Several election protests are already in
sight. It is understood that the Socialists of Fernie will try to upset the election of Ross, the Conservative candidate,
who was only returned by a small majority over their candidate, Moore. In
Richmond, J. W. Weart, Liberal, is talking of taking steps to unseat Cotton.
Delta Conservatives are planning t'he
same move against John Oliver on behalf
of their defeated candidate. It is stated
that McBride will resign in Dewdney to
give place to Manson, who was defeated
in Alberni. Eberts, it is said, not Bowser, is slated for Attorney General.
Other cities and towns are beginning
already to arrange for the coming sporting season, and there is no reason why
Princeton should be behind. Baseball,
football and other popular games should
boom here and rattling good teams got
together.
The Rev. Mr. Macdonald preached his
first sermon in Princeton on Sunday last
to a large congregation and made a
very favorable impression.
AN APPRECIATION.
Smith Curtis Fell in Honorable   Defeat, but Must Rise Again
to Victory.
Elsewhere in the Star will he found a
card of Ihankj to thoes who by vote and
influence supported Smith Curtis in the
recent election campaign. His friends
^throughout the whole riding have been
more firmly knit to him by 'his manly
jfighting qualities and con !uct gen ■ ally
throughout a most strenuous campaign-
He is a credit to himself, the Liberals
and his country and his defeat will be
recorded in history as far more glorious
.than the victory of his opponent, Mr.
Shatford.
His friends early realized in the contest that he was up against a hard proposition in campaigning. He had only
.three weeks to canvass a laige and
sparsely settled riding without a railway.
In about that time he travelled some 500
miles with horses-and «leighs in the most
inclement wheather and over ever filling
roads with snow. He had just returned
from the hospital when he was called
into the field by convention and night
nor day did he spare himself for the
cause he espoused. His opponent had
all the advantage of familiarity with the
voters whom he had canvassed in season
and out of season, besides he had men
in the public service who were often on
the road for political and party purposes.
.' Mr. Curtis is one of the few public
speakers who commands the individual
attention of his hearers from start to finish ofhis speech. He is always in earn
est and never descends to drivel. As a
fluent easy speaker, he is the equal of the
best platform orators in Canada alid as a
debater he would be an ornunent to any
legislative body. By friend and foe he is
the acknowledged superior of Mr. Shat
f. rd in everything that goes to make a
capable legislator. As a representathe
of the Similkameen he wonld, at least,
have the respect of all. The fickleness of
time and opportunity may }et, sooner
than expected, place him as uk m'.er foi
some constituency. His defeat here i.-
attributed to C. P. R inflinnre and tin-
desire of many voters to have a local man
even if he were not capable or fair.
DEATH OF LADY GRENFELL.
Lady Victoria Grenfell, eldest daughter
of His  Excellency  Earl  Grey,  dided at
government  house   shortly   after   mid

OUR OPPORTUNITY.
Now that the elections are over
and we are settling down once more
to business, at this particular time
of year it will not be amiss to take
stock, so to speak, and examine our
requirements for the coming season,
a season that promises much for tl e
whole Similkameen valley and
Princeton in particular. Long de-
la3red railway communication will
be given us, bringing with it cheaper and more satisfactory trausporta
tion, making it possible  for  capital
to come in and develop the rich
mineral resources at our door. It
will lesson the cost of living and
put us in direct connection with
outside commercial centres. In
-short, it is the sine quo non in our
development.
With the advent of the railway
will also come a demand for Princeton coal, not only from British Columbia points, but from across the
border, where a large and profitable
market awaits it, entailing the employment ofa large number of laborers who will make this town their
permanent place of residence, this
one industry alone being sufficient
to insure the future of Princeton.
With labor in derrani, an ideal
climate and a most perfect and picturesque townsite, those cesiring a
pleasant and profitable place of
abode will be induced to settle here.
Nature having blessed us with a
lavish hand it now becomes the
duty of those having their interests
here, those desirous of seeing prosperity ofa solid and laating nature
smile on us, to join hands and
work together with one common
end in view—to make Princeton an
up-to-date and prosperous city.
The initial step in this direction
should   be   :n"f rporation    at     the
propriety  of   public   ownership  of
waterworks and   light systems, especially when they can  be installed
at comparatively small   cost,   as   is
the case here.    Let us build up our
town 0:1 a   proper   foundation, and
the   desir.-d   population  will  come
as a matter of course.    The  question is, is Princeton to   occupy the
position she is  destined   to   hold ?
If she is  we must wake up and take
hold unitedly and determinedly and
work   with   a   will.     Neighboring
towns will be found   only to  ready
to jump in and   snatch what   properly belongs to us if we remain in a
lethargic condition too long.
Our opportunity is at hand, shall
we seize it. ?

Times.
Something really original iu labor union methods for carrying on
a strike is about to be adopted by
the union printers of Chicago, who
have had a long standing fight with
the Western Methodist Book concern, says an exchange. A series
of revival meetings will be inaugurated by the Methodist churches in
Chicago, and the union printers
have decided to send pickets to the
meetings for the purpose of "prajrer
and exhortation," in an effort to
melt the hearts of the church publishing agents. The "conversion"
of the publishing agents, the general good of the union and the reinstatement of locked-out printers
will be the main features of tbe supplications, and there will assuredly
be a large amount of interest in tbe
possible outcome. The plan contemplates one of the most unique
innovations in the methods of organized labor that have yet been
introduced. It is too serious a proposition to be treated humorously,
and yet there may be some who
will watch the effort with amusement and curiosity. The idea of
using prayer as an instrument to
settle labor disputes has not heretofore been tried. Who knows but
what this may be the beginning of
a plan of campaign that will revolutionize the whole industrial situation?
Any available Dominion Lands within
the Railway Belt in British Columbia,
may be homesteaded by any person who
is the sole head of a family, or any male
over 18 years of age, to the extent of one-
quarter section of 160 acres, more or less.
Entry must be made personally at the
local land office for the district in which
the land is situate.
The homesteader is required to perform
the conditions connected therewith undei
one of the following plans:
1. At least six months' residence upon
and cultivation of the land in each year
for three years.
2. If the father (or mother, if the tath
er is deceased), of   the homesteader,  resides upon a farm in the  vicinity of  the
land entered for, the requirements as  to
residence may be satisfied  by such  per
sou residing with the father or mother.
3. If the settler has his permanent residence upon   farming land owned by him
in the vicinity  of his homestead, the re
quirements as to residence  mav be satisfied by residence upon the said land.
Six months' notice in writing should
be given to the Commissioner of Dominion Lands at Ottawa of intention to apply
for patent.
Coal lands may be purchased at $10 per
acre for soft coal and $20 for anthracite.
Not more than 320 acres can be acquired
by one individual or'company. Royalty
at the rate of ten cents per ton of 2 000
pounds shall be collected on the gross
output. W. W. CORY,

Editor Star—Sir:    In your publication   of  last week   there   is   an   article
signed   "Workingman"   which   I   think
ought to be answered in  the  interests of
workingmen.    I should   think, from   the
tone of the article, thr.t  the   writer   was
one of those  dissatisfied, disgruntled   individuals who are never at   ease   unless
they have a rag to chew or a bone to pick
with someone or some  thing.    The con
dition of the workingmen of BritishjPCoI
unibia is ltrbst favorable for them as   this
is undoubtedly a   poor   math's   country.
Good wages prevail and.  if workingmen
would only^be as careful and j'udicious in
spending their money as the  capitalist i
with his there would   be   less   room   for
whining    and   a;itating   for   something
they only think they want.
It  is  well   known- that  workingmefi^
even when organized, are as  uncontrollable by their leaders on   political   or   ,co
