Coal basin of Princeton is practically inexhaustible.-
Prompt, practical sympathy is a blessing to giver and receiver.
Princeton is the centre of a great coal, ore and placer district; it is on the proposed main line of the Great Northern, which is the shortest _
possible route between Winnipeg and Vancouver—Fish and game in abundance—Climate is unexcelled—Terminus of two stage routes.

TEAPPEES EETUEN.
- Johnson and O'Lynn, trappers, arrived
•in Princeton last week with part of their
season's fnr catch, the balance having
been packed to Hope for shipment by
rail to eastern furriers. They were fairly
successful, having caught a large number
of the commoner kinds, also securing
some rare and beautiful pelts of the fox,
wolf, marten and mink. Hitherto, beaver
has been one of the most profitable fur
bearing animals but the restrictions that
• the government has imposed to preserve
it from extinction have closed it to the
trapper and shut off one of his most p o
lific sources of revenue. After purchasing supplies the trappers returned t6
camp, about 30 miles west of here on the
summit of Hope mountains. The trappers state there is not as much snow as
in former years along the summit, but
still enough to cause high water if continuous warm weather sets in. The long
unshorn hair of the trappers showed
plainly that they had not had access to
those well known implements of civilization : the razor and scissors. Are they
trying to grow fur ?

"Maj," cried the little mandarin, as he
wiggled uneasily in his chair, and the
man who answered to that name shuffled
into his august presence in a military"
goose walk, stood at attention and salaamed, saying: "Brother to the Sun
and Protector of your people, your servant is here and ready to do your be■
bests."
"Maj," said the little mandarin, "stop
that kind of guff, it will not bring a raiie
of salary ; we are looking for cheap labor
just now. But tell me how I stand with
the people." The Maj answered: "The
common white trash are sitting on the
fence with their backs turned toward you.
But the light of your benign countenance will incline them toward you as
your Brother, the Sun, forces the sunflower to turn around and look upon the
V glory of his face.    The people on the
reservation are standing pat. Squacum
holds the fort and we hold Squacum—you
know how." ''Then," said the little
$&$&. man as he looked sharply at Maj, "See
that he gets his three bottles of medicine
-a week, and no broaching of cargo on the
way." At this insinuation the Maj's
nose flushed a dark red.
He said : "I need not tell you, the
Chinese are with you to a man." "But,,;
said the little mandarin, "the odor of
opium has already got into my prune
orchard and people will not buy the
fruit." "Then," said the Maj, "we must
fumigate the orchard through the press.
I will dip my pen in acid and incinerate
your traducers." "Maj," cried the mandarin, "keep your pen away from the
acid bottle, it is as pointless now as one
of your own jokes."

ON TO ASPEN GROVE
C.P.R. Surveyors Camped in
Vicinity of the Town
of Nicola.
Contract Let and Immediate Construction will Begin to Nicola and
Aspen Grove.
Actions speak louder than words—and
the C P.R. surveyors now camped on the
Pooley ranch at Nicola together with the
reliable report that six miles of contract
had been let east of Coutlee are eloquent
facts which no amount of doubt or dispute can destroy. Reconnaissance parties
have been up Quilchena creek and as far
as Aspen Grove. To that very hopeful
copper camp it is certain the C.P.R. will
build ; beyond that point it is mere con
jecture what the railway company propose to do. However, the general belief
is that the C.P.R. will make a competing
point of Princeton and bid for a share of
the tonnage which, otherwise would all
be gobbled by its big rival, the Great
Northern.
Plans for station and yards at Nicola
have been made.
A. E. Baldwin and W. Amburn, with
G.N, survey outfit are expected to arrive
today. Camp will be pitched beyond
the townsite and a line will be run up
therSimilkameen.probably as far as Roche
river.
STAE IS THANKED.
The following despatch was received by
the Star from the liberated prisoners who
have just finished their sentence in connection with the disturbance occasioned
by the'employment of Chinese by I,. W.
Shatford, M.P.P., and his brother as managing directors at Penticton of the Southern Okanagan Land Co:
'• Kamloops, B. C, April 25—To satisfy
the political animosity ot the Chinese-
loving Shatford clique we have served
our time and were released from jail here
today. As the Star was the only Similkameen or Okanagan paper fair enough
to give an unbiassed report of the trial
and the true why and wherefore of our
conviction, we wish to express our appreciation of its course and to publicly thank
it for its independence in the matter.
"(Signed)—J. H. Mitchell, D. F. Gladden, G. E. Winkler and J. Edmonds."
Farmers and others would be glad if
the weather clerk would cause a gentle
rain to descend upon the parched earth
and freshen things tip a bit.
The Bank of Commerce has very generously donated $25,000 to the sufferers
by the 'Frisco holocaust.
F. P. Christie, government agent at
Ashcroft was in town this week.
THE FRISCO DISASTER
From 200,000 to 300,000 People Destitute of Food
and Clothing.
Whole Civilized World Sends Eelief
—Princeton will Contribute
to Fund.
Latest news from San Francisco states
that two or three hundred thousand peo
pie are homeless and without regular
food or change of raiment. Danger of a
pestilence breaking out among the huddled masses^is imminent. Thousands of
refugees have gone to other cities. The
whole civilized world sends aid and many
magnificent donations are recorded.
The work of rebuilding the city will
begin at once.
The collection of the Tulameen S.S.
tomorrow will be devoted to the relief of
the sufferers in the San Francisco earthquake and scholars or anyone inclined
to contribute are invited to do so in the
usual way, the total of which will be announced at the close. There are many
agencies through which relief money,
may be sent and the school will make
selection of one which will be deemed
safe and quick to reach the distresied.
THE ENEMT DEFIED.
After a controverssy lasting two months
in which the Star has refuted time and
again the false assertions of the Gazette
re the P.O. paragraph, it (the Gazette)
still goes on with its wearisome repetitions instead of trying to prove its-statements. It wilLnot be sufficient to satisfy
the public or the Star for the Gazette to
say that the paragraph was dishonest,
meaningless and intended to deceive—
these statements must be proven. The
Gazette's word is valueless without proof,
as the following will show ;
Gazette April 19—"Its (the Star) paragraph of Jan. 29th was a dishonest paragraph published with intent to deceive
the public, for it has refused to take the
negative to that proposition."
Referring to the first three lines of the
above quotation the Star of March 3 says:
"Perverse and wilfully blind to the literal
and true meaning of the paragraph as he
(Gazette editor) is the Star emphatically
objects to his thrusting a spurious meaning down its mouth." If that is not
negative enough to the Gazette's false
assertion that the paragraph "was intend
ed to deceive the public," &c, the Star
here and now defies the Gazette to prove
either dishonesty or deception. As the
Gazette began the controversy and is the
aggressor or plaintiff the Star is prepared
to defend the paragraph to the uttermost
Moreover, if tte Gazette has a spark of
honor or  self-respect   left,  after all its
braggadocio, it will now proceed to prove
its rash statements as to "dishonesty,"
&c, and not try to back away from the
Star's challenge of Feb. 17 by saying
there is nothing itHt to arbitrate.
The Star is sorry that so much space
has been used in a profitless discussion
for its readers But it had a duty to perform in defending Princeton, and its own
character, from the pernicious attacks of
the Gazette, therefore, reply was and is
necessary in exposing the purpose of the
enemy.
EECEIVED FAMINE MONEY.
Acknowledgment of the receipt of $13
from the Tulameen Sunday School for
the relief of famine-stricken Japanese
has been received from the treasurer of
the famine fund at Toronto. A postscript to the letter, in answer to some
queries by the secretary of the Tulameen
S.S., states that the matter of having a
library in connection with the above S.S.
will receive the attention of the secretary
of the Ontario S.S. Association. It is
intended to create a library in Princeton
containing good and helpful literature,
subject to control of the S.S., to accomplish which outside aid will be solicited.
The great value of good books on the
impressionable minds of the young can
scarcely be overestimated and the presence of a library in any community will
prove helpful to all, as well-as being an
outward sign of advancement.
SOME MINING OPTIONS.
Editor Star—Sir: Your contributor
of April 14th, who wrote the article
headed "Buyers and Sellers," is, in my
opinion, trying to create a false impression in regard to the prospectors of this
camp. He says "no sane investor or experienced miner will pay money to the
owner of a dead prospect until the merits
or demerits are known by some developments." Now, I do not know just what
he means by the expression "dead prospect," but if he will come to Copper
mountain he can get working bonds on
all of the most promising claims without
paying a cent to the claim owner and
have a sufficient length of time to test
the ground before making a payment.
The usual run of intending investors who
have been through this country have
been willing to take an option for six
months or a year, not binding themselves
to do any work or make any payments.
Of course they had unlimited money
behind them, but I have always noticed
that when they got the option they had
to let it lapse, and their excuse was that
the property had not sufficient merit.
But the truth of the matter is: they were
trying to turn the property to some one
else at three times the price they were
paying. It would look better if your
contributor would sign his name then he
could be convinced that his views are
wrong. Yours truly,
C. M. Snowdbn.

I ,Qne gf.the best and largest assets

-water  power.     It would probably
be no exaggeration  to say that the
energy now running to waste in the
rivers  and  creeks  of this  district
■would  be  sufficient  to  turn every
shaft a'nd'Wheel1 in"*the whole"'pro-
'viribe. ' Nature Has pVtivided' everything   here' with   a lavish "hand to
facilitate the production of ore  aud
the7 extraction *-m   values from  it.
JCbal is abundant and   essential  for
the production of heat and the gen-
era,tibjrj .,of .auxiliary   force.      But
power in.ithe 'cheapesfand least in-
-corrvenient' form   trickles  from'the-
^side's' of ' mountains   ih" sparkling
springs, in foaming streamlets, and
in the  creeks   great torrents of energy are  ceaselessly  splashing onward' to  join   the rivers, which in
turn s'end forth a mighty volume of
unharnessed, power from their swift
running ..waters.     The   estimated
average fall in  the  Tulameen and
•Similkameen rivers west of Princeton is 20 feet per mile.    Here  then
is all the water power necessary for
present  and  future  industrial purposes and  all 4cJr] rtteytrfiereftaking.

is competition in transportation.
They don't care a button who carries their freight so long as they

some Conservative newspapers that

their conception is of Mr. Hill's

THE "HILL INVASION.''
The,.." Hill,invasion " of Canada'

.from  the  crushing heel of monopoly.    He paved the  way for relieving the people from the  unbearable

lowjgg precau'tgpns by owners of horses
and others interested will do much to
prevent the spread of the disease and the
establishment of fresh centres of infection.,, 'j,.^.	
1. Horses or mules having a nasal discharge or other suspicions symptoms
should not be admitted to livery or feed
stables or yards, -"bWcksrhith shops,
church OK, school sheds, railway stock
yards, private-, stables or other places
where they are likely to come into direct
or indirect cc5ntaci':with .apiiipals of the
equine species.
2. All stables, yards or sheds used for
the accommodation of horses . o,r mules
should, ' be regularjy and ,frequ$ptly
cleansed* fend disinfected in the manner
prescribed below.
3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly, and burning all ilebrisHthe in
terior shoul.d be well^gone over with hot
steatn.'.Y^'&r boiling* water", aflding/ to the
latter at least one quATt Qjf crude carbolic
acid to each five gallons after which the
entire surface should be thickly coated
with a hot solution of fresh lime wash,
to"which" crude CariTolic acid has been
added in the above mentioned proportion.
Outbuildings, fences, and tying posts
with which infected animals have been in
contact, should also, when possible, be
thoroughly treated in a similar manner.
All'o'rdinary harness and stable utensils
which havef been in c.ontapt,wJifch infected
anirnals or infected .premises, should be
thoroughly soaked in a-hot solution of
crude carbclic acid of a strength 'of one
part to twentyj.4'.i$HB§i 3$;<3vi
Materials which might be, injured-by
the above treatment, such as valuable
harness, robes cushions, etc., which have
been in contact with infection, should be
placed in' an air tight room, and'fumi-
gated with Formaldehyde after which
they .should be thoroughly cleaned.   ,
4. ,In stables where outbreaks have occurred or 'where'diseased anifuals'ha'v'e,
inartyertantly or*otherwise^ .beeri'stabled,
even temporarily,! the cle^nsingand,disinfection should,, ,be especially thorough
andin such pases it is safest to remove

of wood : iron articles can baireudere'd
hai'ty-less..jby /passing-theim throjagh fire
or by immersing them for sptne time in
boiling water. All litter from suspected
animals'-should be "burned'bt carefully
fenced'tlnti'l'used. •\1'*<-./■••/ t,   .'.
5. Farmers;:and others .should, whenever possib]e, avoid admitting strange
horses and mules to the premises occupied bv' their 6wn animals especially of
the same species. It is a good plan to
reserve an isolated "building tor outside
horses diu tansies,} but wlaK/re. this is impossible they may be accommodated in
cow stables, cattle not being subject to
glanders infection. Such' horses' and
mules should be watered from special
pails, which, together with all other stable
utensils used on or about them, should
be carefully cleansed and disinfected be-s
fore being used for other animals. Stalls
occupied by strange horses or mules
should be well cleansed and disinfected
and, if at all possible, left unoccupied for
some time.
6. Where new horses or mules are purchased in or from districts where glanders exists, they should, unless, carefully
tested with Mallein prior to purchase, be
^tabled  apart and   closely  watched  for
some time before being  brought in con
tact 'with  other animals of the  equine
species.-,, -$§>'■/   | • .   ,c
7. It must be borne in mind that while
nasal discharge, or ulceration, enlarged
glands, the presence of farcy buds, unaccountable swelling:'of the limbs and
general unthriftiness, often characterize
cases of Glanders, the disease exists in
many animals without, for the time being
any external manifestation whatever, the
only means of detection in such cases
being the Mallein test, and that these
occult or latent cases are in some respects
the most dangerous because unsuspected.
Our experience shows that it is possible
for animals of thjs class to convey infection to others without themselves devel
oping acute symptoms. It is therefore
plain that great caution should be exer
cited in the purchase or handling of
strange horses  or mules   especially in
those districts ^where  the 00$&<z has become $sj|fiblished.
8. jp|£;*carcases of animals dyifig from
or $9mgihter§d as being afFegled with
GlOTtlers'* should, when ." poilrble, be
burned or, failyjg this, burie^ilat least six
feet health the surface.
"^. Owners of premises where outbreaks

that iSspectofs, cannot recommend release fgsin quarantine unless disinfection
has biH^i. carfjjed out in a satisfactory
manneagand thM compensation for animals sl||gghtefip£r cannot be paid until a
certificate of-cie*nsing and^MsiriSctiou
has been received by the Minister of Agriculture.
10. Horse owners should have no hesitation in reporting to this Department or
to its inspectors the' existence of actual
or suspected casesiof Glanders, The .disease has been spreading rapidly of late
years and it is a matter of public interest
that every fresh centre ofrinfection should
be discovered and dealt with as promptly

"Hullo, old chap! Haven't seen you
for an age. Where have you been.?"
"Away in the couiitry electioneering."
"Making speeches ?" 'Yes. I was frequently called on to respond." "What
did you mostly say?" "Thank you. I
don't mind if I do."
She—Don't you consider it woman's
work to talk ? He—Certainly, but the
trouble is, "woman's work is fiever done.
"They say that alcohol will clean silver
up nicely," remarked the man who acquires facts. "It will," agreed the red-
nosed individual; "it cleaned up all-my

A man whose house adjoined the railway kept a goat tethered in his garden.
A friend asked him. one day what was
the use of the goat. "Use of the gqat!"
he.replied ; "man, that goat keeps me in
coals. Never a train passes but the fireman throws a bit of coal at it."
Mrs. Style—I want a hat, but it must
be in the latest style. Shopman—Kindly
take a chair, madam, and wait a few
minutes ; the fashion is just changing.
Some lady visitors going through a
penitentiary under the escort of the
superintendent, came to a room in which
three women were sewing. "Dear me,"
whispered one of the visitors, "what
vicious-looking creatures ! Pray, what
are they here for?" "Because they have
no other home. This is our sittiug room;
and they are my wife and two daughters,"
blandly replied the superintendent.
Madge—Does the young clergyman
she's engaged to sermonize much in his
lovemaking? Marjorie—Well, when he
kisses her good night she says he does it
firstly, secondly, thirdly, and so on.
