Coal mining: is sure to be permanent industry here^
The miserable person hunts for slights and invariably finds them
It is quite common to speak of Princeton as the prospective Pittsburg: of British Columbia and the reason for thus referring: to it lies in the fact
that it has all the characteristic surrounding? of its notable exemplar—Princeton Is bound to be a great metal manufacturing: centre and coal city.

STODAY SCHOOL PICNIC.
Monday was observed as Dominion Day
in a quiet and unobtrusive manner by
Princetonians. Some sought tbe shady
rills, lagging along the grassy banks with
bared feet and ankles splashing' in the
cool, sweet water, talking about "the
greatest thing on earth " or the very
latest phase of the railway question.
Followers of Izaak, the Walton, hied
away to the rivers there to lure the speckled beauties from their sparkling palaces
to the fry pan. The larger number of
holiday-makers, however, attended the
Sunday School picnic (which was held in
the shade of the pine and the poplar
on a low bank of the swift-running Similkameen. The thermometer registered
95 ° in the shade but no discomfort was
felt owing to the cool, vitalizing zephyrs
which wafted up stream while the picnic
lasted. Here youth, beauty, old, young,
married and single disported themselves
in various forms of merriment. In the
boys' races Ernest Amburn and Walter
Rennie won prizes. The ladies' race was
very amusing and exciting, the starter
finding it very difficult to get the frisky
ones to toe the scratch. Mrs. Amburn
won in good style with Mrs. Larrabee
and a bunch of swifties a few jumps behind. There was an abundance of cake,
sandwiches, ice cream and drinkables,
many baskets being gathered up after all
were filled. The swings were in con-,
tinual demand and the ropes stood the
strain of some heavyweights without the
slightest snap. Miss Edna Lyall favored
the assemblage with beautiful vocal choruses and selections. It was the first
Sunday school picnic ever held in Princeton, its success being a guarantee of more
to follow.
CLIMATE IS HEALTHY. .
Dr. H. A. Knight, of Minneapolis,
Dak., relative of Mr. and Mrs. D. Young,
founders of the Similkameen dairy, is a
guest at their home, Wolf creek. The
Dr. has not been enjoying as good health
as is his wont, caused by overwork, so he
came to the Similkameen for well-earned
rest and recuperation. He had heard
of the fine climate and splendid prospects
in this section which riveted his intention to come in the face of inconvenient
travelling facilities to this remote quarter.
The Dt. is both delighted and benefitted
with the country and climate. The healing ozone from the higher snow-clad
peaks together with the sweet, appetizing breath of the pines have already
made the Dr. feel a new man, all which
may lead to his permanent residence in
this district of great natural allurements.
Mr. and Mrs. Young are most hospitable
entertainers and always keep on tap a
Tegular flow of humor and rich milk,
which our forefathers described as the
medicine of the gods.
Election of a school trustee will ba
held next Saturday, July 14.
THE BOARD OF TRADE
Tri-Weekly Mail Service for
Princeton is Endorsed
by Board.
Immediate Need of Handy Printed
Information of this Section
is Emphasized.
At the board of trade meeting Thursday evening there were present President
Waterman, C. Summers, H. Webb, H,
Cowan, W. C. Lyall, J. R. Campbell, D
M. Kydd, A. E. Jackson, Dr. Schon and
J. M. Wright.
The vacant secretaryship of the board
was the first matter dealt with after routine and resulted in the election of A. E.
Jackson, who thanked the board for the
honor conferred on him and promised to
be attentive to the duties of his office.
Discussion on the need of a tri-weekly
mail service for Princeton elicited unanimous expression of opinion in favor of a
third mail in addition to those already
received. It was pointed out that the
business interests of Princeton would be
best conserved by a twice-a-week mail
service via Nicola and a resolution giving
effect to this and also embodying the
sentiment of the board as to the necessity
of a thrice-a-week mail was ordered to
be sent to the Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux,
postmaster-general.
Communication from J. M. Moore, An-
glin, Wash., asking the board to reply to
a long list of questions pertaining to the
climate, cost of living, land laws, agricultural and mineral resources, &c, and
stating that he represented several parties
of settlers desirous of coming to Princeton. The letter caused a discussion of
the question how best to deal with the
numerous inquiries made to citizens and
the board regarding this country. After
various suggestions as to the compilation,
printing and dissemination of literature
in folder and other forms the idea was
conceived of publishing a standing advertisement in the Star giving succinct
information, such as would be useful to
homeseekers,investors, prospectors, farmers, business men, manufacturers, mechanics, laborers, &c. A committee was
nominated to inquire into and report
thereon at next meeting.
The attention of the board was again
directed to the inadequate and totally
unfit quarters, by courtesy called a
"school house," for teacher and children
to huddle in winter or summer. For
some hidden reason the board did not
take action. The petition for a new
school house was referred to, but it seems
to have got stuck somewhere. Lack of
flags for the school house and public
buildings was the subject of interrogatories.
Board adjourned for one month.
TWO NATIONAL DAYS
Thirty-Ninth Birthday of the
Dominion, 130th for the
United States.
No Nation can Show Equal Progress
in so Few Years' Life as that
of Canada.
What the Canucks lack in patriotic enthusiasm is more than offset by some of
Uncle Sam's eagle-squeezers here. There
was not a shot fired on Dominion Day
by way of celebration, only a few fluttering flags proclaimed the 39th birthday of
the Dominion. Independence Day was
ushered in with a feu de joie and ushered
out with a terrific discharge of dynamite
while the full-orbed moon furnished a
sublime pyrotechnic display. The railway is the one thing needful to ma ice
celebrations go off with zest and next
year our neighbors from as far as Spokane will be invited to come at our expense in a V.,V. & E. special and partake
of a barrel of fun with some frontier hospitality thrown in. In a few years there-
will be no need of separate national days
—one will suffice. The gradual absorption of the United States by Canada is
going on by the immense immigration of
Americans who become most loyal subjects of the' King. Many thousands of
Canadians are in the U.S. holding htgh
positions as financiers, statesmen and
educationists and these are moulding
opinion into a mutual union or marriage
of the two countries. When that occurs,
one flag and one celebration day will be
ample and one united and happy family
will reach from the pole to the equator.
4/    IMIS-CLARK WEDDING.
The wedding announcement of Win-
nifred, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
L. A. Clark, Green Mountain, to David
J. Innis, of Keremeos, has just been received. The marriage knot was tied at
the home of the bride's parents on the
27th ult. particulars of which have not
yet arrived. The bride is a well known
young lady in the Similkameen and
Okanagan districts and is held in high
esteem by all acquaintances, her happy
manner having won for her the sobriquet
"Winsome." Her musical attainments
make her a favorite at public and social
functions and the popular young couple
enter into their new found home with
best wishes from a host of friends. The
Star extends hearty congratulations.
A larger smelter than the Granby is
reported for the Boundary.
That the Guggenheims, the largest individual dealers in copper in the world,
have had agents here recently, is a fact.
YANKS WHOOP 'ER DP.
Editor Star—Sir: Now that Uncle
Sam is doing his house-cleaning man y
good people believe that the hog in Armour's has subverted the spirit of American liberty, or at least killed the spirit of
patriotism that was behind it. But anyone living within ten. or twelve miles of
Granite creek or Welldo would this morning have realized that the spirit of '76
is not dead but only taking a short nap,
and is ready to break into active assist-
anc on important occasions.
This morning, before the golden orb of
day called the working world from its
slumbers, a series of detonations could
be heard so loud and reverberant as to
shake the solid fouddations of the earth,
ann as the sound rolled in echo along the
mountain sides it carried the glad tidings
to our mountain dwellers that the genius
of American liberty was again upon her
throne. The bugle called tbe gunners
and, Hurrah! boys around the flagstaff,
where the British and American flags
were unfurled to the breeze. This called
for anottner salute and this time the people in the distant hamlet of Princeton
awoke to the fact that it was the Fourth
of July and took up the refrain. Col.
French, a veteran of many campaigns,
delivered the oration. It was a stirring
address and inspired the boys with so
much enthusiasm that they had to adjourn to the hostelry of that staunch
patrio.t DeBarro to moisten other clay
and cool their ardor in a flowing bowl.
Yours truly,
British to thb backbone.
Granite Creek, July 4, 1906.
SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.
The entertainment given by the school
children at the close of the term last
week was enjoyed by a large audience.
The fun produced by Mrs. Jarley 's wax
works and some of the other numbers on
the program was unmistakably appreciated by all. The scholars showed careful training by their teacher, Miss Schon,
who was assisted by Mrs. Lyall, Mrs.
Amburn and Mr. Waterman. Handsome proceeds in cash were netted from
the sale of ice cream. Rolls of honor
were awarded to Ralph Murdoch for pco-
ficiency; Marie Murdoch for deportment and Jack Lyall for punctuality and
regularity. Prizes weie awarded to Edna
Lyall, Ruby McMullen, Doris Lyall',
Charlie Murdoch and Ray Bombard.
Two long communications have been
received at this office for publication.
The staff of the Star is working overtime
to give readers a variety, but how can
this continue if its pages are to be clogged
with heavy, cumbersome articles? As
Artemas Ward would say: Bile it down,
gentlemen, bile it down, please.
The saw mill owned by W. C. McLean at Ashnola has been sold and removed to Allison by Waddell Bros.

H      NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Dry, hot weather may be expect-
' ed for the next two months accom-
'panied by the yearly recurring dan-
- gers from fire. Millions of dollars
.worth of. timber and the temporary
j destruction- of valuable grazing land
• have fallen  prey  to fire within the
last decade in this province.    And
- all owing to the criminal neglect or
; carelessness of some person making
.'c'ampfire or clearing land out of sea-
'sori with fire.    The law is stringent
ilin^regard to setting out fires at this
-season of the year and no one can
plead ignorance of it asthe press of
•the province are continually warning the public of its provisions. A
half-lit match, stub of cigar and the
dregs of a pipe carelessly thrown to
.the ground have./{been known to
ignite the vegetable matter made
highly inflammable by the scorching rays of the sun. . Provincial
constables  are instructed to prose-
,cute all offenders.
The alarming death rate of infants in England has led to a large
conference to consider' means of
abating the evil. John Burns, president of the local government
board occupied the chair. "In the
days when there were no canned
meats and children were fed naturally," said Mr. Burns, "there was
no such sacrifice of child life." He
said that he believed he wonld not
be exaggerating in saying that
100,000 lives were sacrificed yearly
through neglect, carelessness and
ignprance. Drinking among women, he also said, was one of the
most serious tragedies which had
ever1- confronted the con nfry—-it was
daily increasing the mortality of
j.children under five years of age
It was a national disgrace and de
manded immediate attention.
i If ever a department of government required overhauling it is that
of the Lands and Works. If ever
a department required businesslike
administration it is that over which
the : Hon. Bob Green presides.
Scarcely a man having 'business
transactions with, that department
but has' some complaint to make.
In the purchase of land by settlers
and others it often happens that a
buyer will be kept waiting months
in uncertainty as to whether he is
in correspondence with the right
official, or whether his money in
part payment will be confiscated for
some trivial cause. Apparently
there is one law for the Medes and-
another for the Persians, for while
some are given all manner of latitude others are more strictly dealt
with. Some have had the money
deposited with the department for
their deeds for -nearly a year but
without satisfaction, others get tne3$
deeds without delay. One would
naturally look to the government as
a model of good business practice
and honor. But since the adventurers " male and female " have had
a finger- in the departmental "pie"
the conduct of public business is
disgraceful. And it is not to be
wondered at" for these identical adventurers while they floated high
in Princeton for a year made a rank
failure of business and left under a
cloud of bills, mortgages and hopeless promises. While the Andersons are shrewd and no doubt will
make money out of public and private land sales, they are hardly the
class of people for a minister to seek
the advice of or consort with.
Down in Kentucky they'do things
different to what is customary in
most places. For what was seemingly the contemptuous disregard of
society ethics a young man who
was given to flirtations with married women was taken out of bed
at an early hour of morning and
made" to put on a fancy costume of
tar and feathers. He was then set
upon a mule and told not to stop
until he was well across the border.
The Kentuckians are so handy with
a trigger or a hemp noose that one
is hardly prepared to receive word
of the comparatively mild and genteel tar treatment with credence.
In all the other states and even in
Canada the indiscreet male offender
is invariably made the target for
some gun play, then a post mortem
and police court and all is over.
All the government organs are
busy these days trying to convince
the Liberals that there will be no
general election this fall. That old
homely phrase: "Actions speak
louder than words," is just as true
today as when first coined. The
twin ministers, McBride and Green,
have just made a political tour of
the province,, now "lieutenant"
Hawthornthwaite has got the tip
and he is on a campaign stumping
trip. Then there is the starting of
a party organ at Nelson at a time
when business does not warrant it.
Everybody knows that the Premier
deceived the public by pulling.off
the last general election a month
earlier than announced in . his organs, so that there is no reliance to
be placed on any statement emanating from that source. Liberals can
only prepare and await the sound-
ving of the tocsin of battle.

Benevolent old gentleman (rescuing
one small boy from the pummeling of
two others)—What are you hurting this
boy for ? "Because he made so many mistakes in his arithmetic this morning."
"But what business was that of yours ?"
"Why, he let us copv our answers from
his."
Employer—Jimmy, I let you off yesterday afternoon because you said you
had some necessary work to do, aud one
of my clerks says he saw you an hour or
two later at the ball game. Office Boy—
Yes, sir, I was rootin' fur de home team.
Judge (to prisoner just condemned to
death)—You have the legal right to express a last wish, and if it is possible it
will be granted. Prisoner (a barber)—I
should like just once more to shave the
prosecuting attorney.
Ragson  Tatters—What does dese society papers mean by a "man-about-town ?"-
Weary  Willie—Well, Ragsy,  that's no
thin* in the world but a hobo that always
manages to have the price.
The wife of a certain wealthy statesman from the west is said not to have
always enjoyed her present luxurious
state and prominence. Her friends are
frequently much amused bj her real
apropos observations. Once someone
ventured to remark to her that General
So-and-So was certainly a bellicose man.
The western lady's eyes bulged with astonishment. "You don' tell me!" she
exclaimed. "Of course, not having met
him, I couldn't say. But I thought from
his picture that he was very thin! "
"Charlie looked very, sick when he returned from the races," said Mrs. Tork-
!ns. "What was the trouble?" "He
said his system was out of order."
