PRINCETON, B.G, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
V. V. & IKaMaY
j CONSTRUCTION
Work Going Steadily on and
Gopd Progress Being
Made.
With More Men Available Things
Will be Bushed and Princeton
Beached by Spring.
Construction is going on apace on the
V. V. & E., and the first' of the week saw
the rails laid to Molson, Iri the past
great difficulty has been experienced in
securing labor, but with the; harvest
about over more men will be available
for this work and better progress will be
made. It is expected that headquarters
will soon be moved to Keremeos and
grading commenced between that point
and Hedley. From Keremeos the main
camp will be moved to Princeton, and
this town will continue to be headquarters until the line is completed to the
coast. This will mean a great deal to
Princeton, and when the puff, puff of the
- steam horse is actually heard there will
"£8fcthings doing in town that night. Just
how soon this will occur, of course it is
hard to say, but one of the V. V. & E.
officials recently said, ''We'll be in
Princeton sooner than you think."
When the road is completed to the
coast. Princeton, owing to her advantageous position, is bound to become the distributing point for this section, and the
dream of those who have had faith in
the town and stayed with it will be
realized.
DEATH OP THE JONES TWINS.
Mr. and Mrs. J H. Jones mourn the
loss of their twin babies, which died
within a few weeks of one another. Little
Jimmy, aged 7 months died on August
3rd, and little Jack passed away on Sept.
21st, aged 8 months aud 20 days. The
family moved here from Hed.ey some
time ago, thinking that probably the
change would improve the health of the
children, but they gradually weakened
and died. They were buried side by side
beneath the pines across the Similkameen south-east from Princeton. The
Rev. Messrs. E. H. Bartlett, M. A., and
D. F. Smith, B. A., conducted the funeral services. Mrs. Jones, who is worn out
by constant watching, intends leaving
for the East as soon as her health will
permit. In their bereavement Mr. and
Mrs. Jones have the sympathy of the
community.
HEW SCHOOL HOUSE HEEDED.
On account of lack of space in the
school house tufe pupils will be taught in
the Court House until suitable educational quarters are provided. Lately it has
been found necessary to conduct the
school on a sort of relay proposition, one
half of the pupils attending in the morning and the balance taking it up in the
afternoon. This scheme has been most
unsatisfactory all round. The Government, however, has promised to attend
to this matter in the spring and erect an
up-to date school building. It is sincerely
hoped they won't forget it.

HOTEI JACKSON SOID.
This Well Known Hostelry Bought
by Outside Capital.
The Hotel Jackson, owned and operated by the proprietor, John H. Jackson,
changed hands on Tuesday, the purchaser being Peter Swanson, of Midway,
on behalf of himself and L. A. Manly, of
Grand Forks. These gentlemen operate
several hotels in this part of the couqtry.
The price, paid is understood to be in tbe
neighborhood of #7,000. This deal has
been pending for some time, Mr. Swan-
son having been in here a few weeks ago
in this connection. Owing to the new
proprietors being unable to take charge
until the new year, on account of press of
business elsewhere, only the bar was
taken over, with Ed. Graham in charge.
Edward is the right man in the right
place. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson will continue to run the dining room till January.
Under their management the Jackson
Hotel has made an enviable reputation
for itself with regaid to the board provided.
Mr. Swanson, who knows a thing or
two, believes Princeton has a great future, and he is not the only one who
thinks so.
PABEWELL SEBMOH.
The Rev. D. F. Smith, B. A., who has
been laboring in this field in the interests
of the Presbyterian Church for the past
five months, preached his farewell sermon on Sunday night last, to a large congregation. Mr. Smith goes to far off India, his station being in the heart of the
famine district and being an expert
farmer and a first class mechanic, he will
be able to do a vast amount of good in
that section. Since Rev. Mr. Smith's arrival here he has made many friends by
his open hearted manner and kindly
ways, and it is deeply regretted by all
that he was removed from this field.
Mr. Smith left on Tuesday for the coast
by way of Hope. On reaching there he
will proceed to Winnipeg, and from this
point he goes to the Otkney Islands,
to visit his mother, whom he has not
seen for seventeen years. Then the long
journey to India will be made. His
manjr friends in Princeton wish him
success.
Before leaving he was presented with
a puise.
GENEBAL ELECTION IN SIGHT. 1
The Victoria Times is quite positive
that the House will be dissolved and an
appeal made to the country some time
this winter, notwithstanding Premier
McBride's statement to the contrary.
The Times says: "Nevertheless and not
withstanding, we reiterate that which
has already been stated in our columns:
that the Government will not again meet
the Legislature; that an understanding
has been reached with the Lieut.-Goy-
ernor and that a dissolution will be granted when it is asked for; that every possible preparation has been made for a
general election, and that the constitu
ents will1 be appealed to before the end
of the present year."
In any circumstance, it behooves the
Liberals to sit up and take notice, and
not be caught napping when the time
does come. raj

Search for   the "Lost Mine"
Still Goes On—Prospects
of Success.
Development and Assessment Work
in Various Camps—Encouraging Showings.
J. Oswald Coulthard arrived from the
coast last Saturday, to inspect the work
now going on at the Roanie mine, on
the Tulameen river, where he has six
men at work,- trying to find what is
known as the "lost mine." This mine
has a history that dates back to 1886. At
that time a gang of Chinamen were washing for gold when they came upon a ledge
of rich looking ore. An assay was secured by Mr. Cook which, however,
showed very poor returns, and nothing
more was done with it. In 1888 Mr.
Coulthard became acquainted with a
Chinaman who had made the discovery
and who had in his possession a piece of
the ore. Believing it to be rich, Mr.
Coulthard had an assay made, and to his
astonishment it ran #200 in gold to the
ton, with a light showing of platinum.
The ground was staked and an attempt
made to locate the ledge, but without
success. Owing to low state of the river
this year renewed efforts are being made
to unearth this treasure, and Mr. Conlth-
ard is quite confident of finding it. At
any rate he intends staying with the
search until success crowns his efforts.   .
Uhler and Cox, who have a group of 8
claims on Holmes mountain, were in
town on Wednesday purchasing supplies.
Thev have been busy doing assessment
work, and report good showings, recent
assays running high in copper, with
gold and silver.
J. Snowdon and D, O. Day left Tuesday
to do assessment work on the King Solo
mon, Copper mountain.   They expect to
be gone three weeks, and   further   men
tion will be made of this promising location on their return.
George Aldousys in from Blue Ribbon
mountain. George brought in some fine
samples of ore which assayed good in
gold and copper. It is his intention to
put a small force of men to work this
winter, so as to be in a good position to
push operations in the spring.
Messrs. Bonnivier and.Ponwels arrived
from Roche river the first of the week.
These gentlemen are not saying much
but it is pretty well understood they have
something good. They left again on
Thursday for their camp and promised on
their return to have something worth
publishing.

THE TURNING POINT.
In the  history of every  country
there has been a turning  point—a
point that marked a  new  order of
I things.      This   change   has   been
brought about in   various   ways.
. In the. case of our own   glorious
Canada  this  point  may be justly
said to have been -turned with  the
advent; of- the Laurier administration.    Realizing the vast resources
■   of the country and the necessity,
if we were  to  advance  with any
degree of progress, for the proper
.development of pur natural wealth,
% laudable means were taken to open
up the country and attract  the  attention of the world to the unlimit4
ed opportunities for   the   safe   and
profitable   investment   of    capital.
How   successfully   this   has   been
done    is    well    known    to    all.
Capital calls labor, and labor means
the gathering together of men and
women,  in  consequence of which
cities are built.
With  the  assurance  of railway
connection with the  outside world
in the near future   this   district   is
reaching the turning  point  in   its
history.-   With the advent of cheap
and  proper facilities  for  shipping
and the introduction  of capital   to
develdp the mineral -wealth  which
is known to exist in this  neighborhood, the Similkameen Valley will
make rapid strides.    Tbe town  of
Princeton, which issituated ih the
. heart of the mineral belt, and owing
to the advantages  of her situation
as a distributing point, is  destined
to become a -great city.   Nature has
endowed hei; with a beautiful site on
which to  built a city—a  location
unequalled anywhere.
Let us see to it then that  no opportunity is lost in  advancing   our
interests, and let   us   place before
the world the many advantages to
be had here.    A newspaper is  undoubtedly   the    medium    through
which this can  best  be, done and
the Star intends do so to the best of
its ability.    To do this successfully
the unanimous support of the  com
munity must be had.    There must
be one common object in view—the
advancement of our town.
Canada's customs revenue is still
climbing. The increase for the
month of August over the same
period last year was $402,936. The
revenue for the. month was $4,615,-
95»-	
Thursday, October 18, has been
proclaimed Thanksgiving Day.
By the time another Thanksgiving
Day will have come aroun/l Prince-
tonites will have abundant reasons
for being truly thankful.'"
R. G.McPherson, M. P., of Vancouver, and W.J. Galliher,  M„ P.,
of Kootenay, waited on Sir Wilfrid
Iv^urier last week and  asked   that
Hindoos, who are now arriving  in
this Province in large numoers, be
shut out of Canada.    They  asked
that the clause in the  Immigration
Act   under   which   "undesirables"
are not permitted to arrive  in Canada, be applied to them.    McPher-
son says that 1300 have already arrived and they are coming by every
steamer.     -The   Immigration   Department is now investigating  the
matter.     It   might   seem   strange
to object to  these people   entering
this country in view of the fact that
they are  British subjects and  the
majority  of them army  reservists,
but it cannot be  dehied that   their
looks and general   make    up   are
against them.    They come  from a
country infested with  disease,   and
more   than   likely  they   carry the
germs with them.    It would   be a
most serious state of affairs should
an outbreak of bubonic plague take
place in this Province.    They have
one  champion,   however,   in-Vancouver, in the person of Col. Faulk
Warren.     Col.   Warren   has   seen
service in India with  these  people
and naturally should know whereof
he speaks. -  He claims  they  are  a
cleanly race, and goes as far  as  to
say they are in every way fit to assimilate with our own people. . The
gallant   Colonel   will   have   some
trouble in making the  most  of  us
see it in that way.
