LIBERALS IN SESSION
Local Liberals Receive Assurance that Platinum Expert
Will Investigate.
Daily Mail to Keremeos and Direct
Service to Boundary and Spokane.
Ore Exhibit.
At the Liberal Association meeting
held last night there were several communications read, some of which are of
public interest and merit publication.
Dr. Mathison, president of Greenwood
Liberal Association, was present and on
introduat^oji by President Campbell gave
ashort speech 'full of that sound sense
and optimism for which he is noted, 'lytr.
N. Bangs, of Spokane, also gave the
Association a pleasant-fell. He isSSothu-
siastic regarding the founding of a permanent exhibit of Similkameen ores at
Spokane, a matter which the Association
is heartily in sympathy with but which-
plossibly does not come within the purview of its constitution.
Touching a communication from Chairman Smith of the Yale-Cariboo District
Liberal Association asking for opinibrJW
the Princeton A*5s|<|jation as^ to date of
nominating corWerHion for' Dbjninion
elections, it wasf^resolved : PTnaJ. the
Princeton Liberaf^ssociation ig df unanimous opinion that the interests of the
Liberal party of Yale-Cariboo will be
best conserved by choosing a date of
nominating convention at least five
months ahead, say during the Easter va-
catiodjof Parliament. That the names of
prospective candidates be in the hands of
the secretary at least one week before
date of convention and that the same be
published in the newspapers of the riding. That to secure absolute fairness and
justice to all candidates at the convention
a committee shall be appointed to see
that no tampering is done with delegates
after proceedings have begun and that
only one vote or ballot be taken."
The Association dealt with the problem of road communication in this dis
trict and resolved : "That the Princeton
Liberal Association begs to express their
earnest appreciation of the successful efforts of hi W. Shatford, M. P. P., in improving the main highways in Princeton
district. In furtherance of this progressive
policy this Association takes tne liberty
to respectfully suggest to him the necessity for early completrqgta wagon roadjto%
Roche river and the construction of pfo-
misek sidewalks in Princeton. The importance ofthe lumbering, as well as the
mining industry, now demands that good
roads be built along the rivers to assist
in the development of the varied resources of this section."
Resolution sent to Mr. Shatford.
The Association also passed a resolution
addressed to the., Hon.. Rodolphe Letn-
ieux, Postmaster General, intimating the
need, of a daily mail from Keremeos, tHS
present terminus of the V., V. & E., to
Princeton and pointing out the advantages to business men and the public generally in having prompt and quick communication with the Boundary and Spok
ane by this route, where under the present P.O. service it takes two weeks to get
a letter reply. A daily mail and stage
will greatly encourage travellers to come
to Princeton and now that railway con
struction is under way its need is doubly
apparent.
A motion was passed advisingJSuper-
intendent Stevens of the telephone line
of the necessity for a wire connection
with the V., V. & E. at Kereujeos.
Afiej^the transaction of some private
business the Association adjourned to
meet a montlti hence for the election of
officers. mmm^i
ED&TINUM EXPERT PROMISED.
I Realizing the advisability of having a
thorough examination made of the
platinum fields of the Tulameen district
by the Dominion Geological Department,
and the placing in the hands of the pub
lie reliable data concerning this valuable

Princeton Liberal Association, ever elert
in matters pertaining to and in the interests ofthe publipatpetitioned the Dominion Minister of Mines, Hon. Wm. Templeman, to have Mr. Chas. Camsell, Dominion geologist, examine and report on1
the platinum prospects in the Tulameen
dfsmct, where platinum has been known

Victoria, B. C, Oct., 14, 1907.
B. S. Kennedy, Esq.,
Sec'y. Princeton Liberal Association,

I will be glad to refer your request to
the officersyrf the department and I' riiay
say that an effort will be^made to meet
the wishes of the Association.   -

Judge Brown held County Court on
Saty|rday morning and disposed of the
cases on the slate by noon. The case of
D. O. Day vs. C. O. French, for a settlement of several old standing accounts,

ofa tangle, and the judge straightened it
out by finding for the plaintiff in the
sum of $69.08.
The other case, A. E. Howse Co., Ltd.,
ts. J. A. Bombard for debt, was disposed

LUCKY ESCAPE.
. If Kit Summers hadn't been borjj under a lucky star he certainly would have
met his death on Monday last, At noon
of Monday Kit went into his stabl^Jio
watei and feed a couple'Qf^steeds WjfdJas
he was proceeding with a bucket .oj water
to one of the stalls he slipped, and fell
under the horse's feet. Tti^splashing of
jva^er and the noise m'dde by the fall of
the bucket frightened'the horse and he
did as any horse Would do under similar
circunistahcte—kicked, and it was noth-
ingishi^tpdf miraculous that Kit was not
kicked to dealth. As it was he received
,a badly bruised arm and a bump on the
face. Kit's many friends are congratulating him on his lucky escape.

AH IMPORTANT CASE.
(Continued from page 1.)
was one ofthe real pioneers of the Okanagan,  Similkameen   and   Kootenay districts.    He came to Osoyoos, B. C, in the
service of  the  Imperial Government 'in
i860.    For many years he  was  the  sole
representative of the Government in these
large districts, and many wert the hardships he endured travelling over an  unbroken country in the discharge  of  his
duties.    Realizing  the  favorable   conditions of the Okanagan district for cattle
raising, T. C. Haynes,  or   rather  Judge
Haynes, as he was called and known  by
all, went into the stock  raising business
and for this purpose, from time  to  time,
purchased immense tracts of land till  in
1888, date of his  untimely death  on  the
Dewdney trail, he had 21,000 acres   over
which nearly 4,000   cattle   and   a large
bunch of horses roamed at will.   In July,
1888,   Judge   Haynes,   while   returning
from Victoria, B. C., over the Hope trail,
succumbed    to   an  attack   of   appendicitis at Princeton, B. C.    As there  were
no wagon roads in those days, Jack Neil
suggested taking the  body in   a   canoe
down the Similkameen river  to  the  old
Custom Fort.    This  was done,  but   not
without many  difficuliies.     From  there
to Osoyoos a wagon was used to  convey
the body to its last resting place^-ou  the
shores of a lake which he so dearly loved.

CHINA'S AWAKENING.
The historian of a hundred years from
now will probably quite  confidently tell
his class that  the   most   remarkable woman of the  early part of the  twentieth
century was Tsu   Hsi, dowager Empress
and real   ruler  of   China, and   that   the
greatest event of   the   period   iu   world
politics was her  proclamation  announc
ing the changing ofthe fyrm of Government from a despotism toa constitutional
monarchy.    China has for a week or   so
had a  responsible   Cabinet.     She   is   to
have a Parliament as soon as  the   neces
sary machinery can  be  orovided.    Compulsory education has been provided  for
and local self-government is a part ofthe
great plan  of   leformation.    When  Tsu
Hsi, after abetting the Boxer movement,
in the hope of expelling the white  man
from the empire, had  to flee from Pekin
and seek refuge in the   far   interior, she
evidently made up her   mind   that  the
white man held   iLe   better   cdrds    She
proposes now to maintain the integrity of
China by bringing her people up to western standards of  civilization, instead   of
exterminating the "foreign devils."   The
new way is distinctly an improvement on
the old.    Tsu Hsi is now almost seventy-
four; and in her case wisdom has accompanied old age.
