this issue ,tend'ers,are being invited by
the Government ,fyr the erection of a
two-oom framescbool house in Princeton,
tenders to be received up to noon of
Monday, 3rd- June. By some blunder
only one tender form arrived with the
plans and specificati.ons which will likely
cause the rime for receiving tenders to
£e extended to allow of these necessary
papers to arrive.      \
As seen on paper the plans show a one
story two rouin building, the class rooms
being 27x36, well finished and plastered,

two teachers will be put on the staff and

outhouses are planned for. Altogether
the building will make a presentable ap
pearance when completed.

RAILROAD BRIDGE  DELAYED.
: P. Swanson returned,home from Grand
Forks yesterday afternoon after an absence of several,days. Mr Swanson reports that work on. the Armstrong bridge
has been suspended until after high water
which is rather discouraging news to the
people of the Similkameen. This delay
means that the rails will not reach Kere
meos untill some time in August and
puts out of the question the chances for
railway communication to Princeton this
year. From what Mr. Swanson could
learn construction work would be com
menced to Princeton in the fall.
Mrs. P..Swanson has received the sad
news ofthe death of her brother, George
Higgins, at Phoenix, Ariz., on  the  27th.
The largest, most representative and
most harmonious convention which ever
assembled in Ireland, says a despatch, repudiated the bill for a limited Irish
Council, tvhich was all the Liberal Government had to offer in fulfilment of its
campaign promises. This action kills
the hope of any Home Rule legislation
by the present parliament.
NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS.
The time for receiving tenders for construction of school house at Princeton
has been extended for one week from
3rd June to 10th June.    By order of
Lands and Works Dept.
F. W. GROVES,
Secy. Princeton School Trustees.
MINING NOTES.
W. A. Flagei, one of the pioneers of
the Red river country, and for years a
hotelkeeper in Winnipeg, passed up to
Bear creek last week wheie he.is interested in mining properties. He considers himself lucky to hold mining ground
in this important and promising section,
which he will develop and prove. Mr.
Flager has also mining properties in the
Slocan where he has been located for
the past few years.
Near Camp McKinney in the lower
Similkameen  the    LeRoi   has   recently
been bonded for 130,000. Assays give 8
per cent, copper, $3 in gold and 4 ozs. in
silver. The property is four miles from
the V., V. & E. railway and is connected
with it by a good wagon road.
Manganese ore is much sought after,
the production of it being limited to few
mining districts. Samples of manganese have been found in the Princeton district but as yet no ledge has been discovered. Prospectors would do well to give
their attention to this oie as it is valuable and at present scarce.
INCREASED IMMIGRATION.
Immigration returns show that during '
the nine months ending March last there
were 8,406 arrivals in British Columbia,
2,000 more than the Maritime provinces
received, double what Saskatchewan got
and fiue times more than Alberta. The
only provinces which exceeded British
Columbia' were Manitoba, Quebec and
Ontario, the latter being highest in the
list.
W. F. LUXTON DEAD.
W. F. Luxtpn, who founded the Win
nipeg Free Press in 1872, died at Winnipeg on May 20th. He was one of the
best known men among the Fort Garry
pioneers and assisted in laying the foundations of civic and provincial government there. His good qualities and his
energy in working for the public good
gained and kept him the esteem of the
community.
VICTORIA DAY OBSERVED.
General Holiday Spent in Sport, Social
Reunion and Dance.
; Friday, May the 24th, passed off in
Princeton very pleasantly and those who
took in the sport were well pleased. The
ball game proved a rather one sided affair, the home team winning by a large
margin. The Tulameen Wolves were
greatly handicapped by the absence of
several of their star players, but made
the best of a bad job and remained game
to the last, although playing a losing
game. Chas Henderson, their pitcher,
played a rattling good game in spite of
poor support. The local fans played
good ball in spots, the batting of J. R.
Campbell and Jack Macdonell being feature of the game. The return match
will likely be played at Tulameen on
July ist.
Sam McCoskery umpired tbe game
and gave general satisfaction.
After the ball game a purse was made
up for a horse race in which some half
dozen steeds lined up. A good stard was
made the string getting away in fine
style with Stranger in the lead which
position he held to the finish. C. F. Law's
Romeo getting se.cond money, with A,
Johnston's Beauty third.
The ball in the evening attracted a
large numder of dancers and a most enjoyable evening was spent.

AT THE FOOT OF THE THRONE.
Just as some people were beginning to think something had happened to Premier McBride—that
the "foot of the throne" had
drawn back and administered to
him a " swift kick " or something
of that kind—Finance Minister
Tatlow announces that he has received a cablegram saying that his
chief is all right and that his business is proceeding satisfactorily.
This information is sufficiently indefinite to arouse some degree of
curiosity, because although we have
sought diligently in the newspapers
of Eastern Canada, which daily receive dispatches containing news of
the doings of Canadian notables in
the Imperial capital and in tbe press
of London, which is giving special
prominence to the movements and
actions of colonial visitors, we have
been unable to find anything indicating that Premier McBride has
been doing obeisance at the "foot of
the throne" or interviewing the
Colonial Secretary or any of the
other Imperial Ministers with reference to the details of Jiis mission.
Of course we understand that there
is a gocd deal of strong red tape to
break through in approaching the
throne ol Great Britain or any of
the avenues of communication
which lead thereto, and we are willing to make allowances for such
difficulties At the same time we
are bound to take cognizance of the
fact that Mr. McBride has been iu
London for more than a month now
and he ought to be in a position to
report with some degree of definite-
ness the progress he is making and
the prospects of securing better
terms for British Columbia. Surely
it cannot be that the Premier finds
himself completely outside of the
circle of colonial lions, that he is
being ignored entirely by the press,
or that he is taking advantage of a
unique opportunity to have a "good
time" at the expense of the people
of British Columbia. It will be remembered that there were scoffers
in the province—"cynics" the sup-
pcrters of the government would
probably call them—who held that
such was the real object of Mr.
McBride's trip ; that other mem:
bers of the administration had gone
to London on previous occasions
and had nothing to show in the
matter of accomplishments save
bills ot considerable expense, and
that the Prenier   was simply going
to London because his turn had
come, the question of lodging an
appeal at the " foot of the throne "
being merely a convenient excuse
for the jaunt. It may be that our
representative will come back a successful plenipotentiary and put all
his critics to confusion, but, notwithstanding, or rather because of,
his cablegram to his colleague Mr.
Tatlow, we have our doubts.—Victoria Times.
J. DANAHER & CO.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
At last, there are some signs of
awakening at Victoria. The long
promised school house for Princeton is about to materialize, at least
tenders for it are being advertised.
The building should be ready for
occupation at the end of the summer vacation if reasonable energy
and push is observed by the Department of Lands and Works. While
no fault can be found with the site
of the old school house under present conditions, it must be obvious
to the most nearsighted person that
with the expansion of the town it
would be a serious blunder to put
tbe proposed new building there.
The railway line is at the rear of
the old school building, and it is
quite probable that the station will
be in that vicinity. As everyone
knows a school should be as free
from disturbance as possible aud to
secure that it must be' removed from
the business quarter—apart from
that consideration land is too valuable for school purposes anywhere
near Vermilion avenue. It is hoped
that the new building will have a
flag staff and belfry, combining the
sentimental and useful, giving tone
and dignity to the building which
may yet give birth to some Shakespeare or patriot Tell.

The new Department of Mines,
Ottawa, under Minister Temple-
man will shortly issue a report on
the "Mining and Metallurgical Industry of Canada." The report is
issued in response to a large num
ber of inquiries from all parts of
the world about mining and its
allied industries in Canada. As
the ministerial representative of the
greatest mining and mineral province (B.C.). in the Dominion Hon.
Mr. Templeman will do a needed
service and one which the McBride
government has neglected since its
advent to power. The report will
cover the whole country, and it is
hoped that those in charge of mines
and industries, and others, will furnish every facility to representatives of tbe Department of Mines
to enable a full and useful report to
be made. Among other information given the following are some
of the subjects treated : Number of
men employed, wages; name of
company, capital, shares, officers,
head offiee, date of incorporation ;
transportation; cost of mining;

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
A FLOOD NOT LIKELY.
Unless an exceptionally warm period
should occur, says the Province, there
now seems to be no possibility of dangerous tioud conditions on the Fraser, the
Columbia, or any ot the other large rivets iu the Province. Telegraphic advices
received from points along the Columbia
and Eraser rivers show that the water is
now from three to ten feet lower at various places than it was at the corresponding date in 1894, the year of the great
flo.xls in this Province, when an enorm
ou.i amount of damage was done throughout the country. During the- past ten
days the weather has been just warm
enough to start the snows melting gradu
ally and though the rivers and streams
have risen considerably the waters are
passing off gradually.
The same concitions may be said to ex
ist in the Similkameen and  from present
indications there is not likely 10   be  any
damage from floods this year

NOTICE  TO  CONTRACTORS.
Stomach trouble is but a symptom of. and not
to itself a true disease. We think of Dyspepsia.
Heartburn, and Indigestion as real diseases, yet
they are symptoms oniy of a certain specific
Herve sickness—nothing else.
It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Shooljl'
to the creation of that now very popular Stomach
Remedy—Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Going direct
to thejstomach nerves, alone brought that success
and.favor to Dr. Shoop and his Restorative. Without that original and highly vital principle, no
such lasting accomplishments were ever to be had.
For stomach distress, bloating, biliousness, bad
breath and sallow complexion, try Dr. Shoop's
Eestorative—Tablets or Liquid—and see for yourself what it can and will do. We sell and cheer*
