800,000,000 tons of superior coal in Princeton basin.
True greatness consists in being great in little things.
'Enormous hydro-electric power in the swift running; rivers and streams in and about Princeton—Coal, ore and placer mining industries, when
developed, will require many thousands of workingmen—Climate is perfect; doctors subsidized by provincial government; no graveyard.

SCHOOL HOUSE TOO SMALL.
A petition addressed to the trustees of
Princeton school district is being circulated among parents and taxpayers "in
which prayer is made for a larger school
building. It is pointed out that the insufficiency of air space in the building
now used for twenty-five scholars is a
menace to health. The signatories ask
that the trustees will proceed with due
haste in the matter so that a proper
schooi house may be provided by the end
of the summer vacation. The necessity
for a larger building is readily noticed
by a visit to the school during a session,
the close, vitiated atmosphere and the
accommodation being strongly in evidence. Provision must be made in the
proposed building for a rapid increase of
school population due to the onward
tread of civilization and the approach of
the railway.
SEEING THE COUNTRY.
Price Ellison, M.P.P., and J. C. Camp
bell, of Vernon, arrived in Princeton
Thursday morning from Otter Flat
They drove from Vernon via Grande
Prairie and Nicola to Aspen Grove where
they are interested in a group of mining
claims of which the celebrated Copper
Standard is chief. They have unbounded
faith in the Grove as a mining camp. Its
only drawback for the time being is lack
of transportation, which they think will
soon be supplied by the C.P.R. Mr. Ellison was in Princeton many years ago.
He sees many changes, but the beauty of
the place remains as of yore. "Great
country ! Mineral everywhere : I have
always believed since the first day I saw
it that a splendid future was in store for
it," ejaculated Mr. Ellison as he turned
over some attractive mineral specimens
and asked to be given one of red paint.
He is one of the big land lords of the
Okanagan and can't help being a mil
lionaire with the demand for small fruit
holdings still increasing. In the legislature he sits to the right of Mr. Speaker
but is an independent Liberal Conservative, so much so that he often gives the
premier a bad spell of nervous prostration when he touches on certain railway
questions. Mr. Campbell may establish
4 a business here a little later.
INMATES FOR A ZOO.
J. Gray and A. Allison captured four
coyote pups recently which they intend
to make pets of and train for their own
amusement, They know where there is
a quarry of about a dozen or more which
they may be able to dispose of at good
prices. Dr. Cecil French, naturalist, of
Washington, D.C., advertises for grizzly
and white bear cubs, inland white bears,
marten, otter, beaver, goats, wild swans,
geese, cranes and other wild animals and
birds. The coyote might look well in a
zoological park but he is certainly no
attraction here except for a bullet.

Third Man Receives 25^5<ears, Thus
Closing the Prison Door on
Blighted Life.
The second trial of the train robbers
was caused by disagreement of jurors on
first trial and the case was reheard, end
ing.in life sentence for Edwards and
Dunn, and twenty-five years for Colqu-
houn. No fresh evidence was adduced
at the second trial, which was without
incident. The prisoners were asked if
they had anything to say before sentence
was passed, to which they replied in the
negative. Judge Irving then said : "The
case against you was very clear. I agree
with the verdict and the sentence of this
court is that you, George Edwards, be
confined in the penitentiary for life, you
William Dunn for life, and you Louis
Colquhoun, for twenty-five years."
Dunn broke down when sentence was
passed but the other two took it philosophically. The prisoners were put on
the train which bore them to the penitentiary at New Westminster, where two
of them will end their natural days and
the other will, if he lives, taste freedom
again at the end of twenty-five years.
AS OTHERS SEE US
The following from the Loomis Prospector would be apt to tickle the vanity
of people in less favored places, but
Princetonians are so accustomed to bouquets of this kind that they just smile,
say " thank you," and no ado : "Harry
Harris returned .Tuesday from his trip
into British Columbia. He went on as
far as Princeton. He did not care to go
beyond. Princeton is good enough for
him. It is a town that has won his heart,
and possibly weaned him from the United
States. He says it is the most beautiful
place he ever saw. They are not afraid
of paint up there. [There is a mountain of it just above the town—Star Ed.]
And people believe in lawns, and flowers, and pretty surroundings. He seems
never to get tired of singing the praises
of Princeton."
Rev. E. R. Bartlett, M.A., will conduct
divine service in the court house, tomorrow, as follows: Matins, at 11:30a.m.,
followed by holy communion ; evensong,
7:30 p.m.
Con Faircloth and Andy Schuttler have
uncovered a 30 foot lead of copper sulphide ore with well defined walls on the
Skaist river. They have had assays running as high as $50. It is their intention
to work on it all summer.
TRACK LAYING BEGUN
Where are those Boasters Now ?  Who
Said C.P.R. would be in Similkameen Too.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of V.,
V. & E. construction, was in Princeton
last Monday inspecting survey work and
conferring with his staff here. He expects that construction will actually begin west of Keremeos this month. Grad
ing is almost completed between Midway and Oroville.
Train loads of steel rails are arriving
at Midway every day and are stacked in
the yard, which is rapidly filling with
material for bridges and trestles to be
put in place as the track reaches the point
where they are to be used. All bridge
timbers and castings are fitted at Midway
by a gang of mechanics and then sent
on to their destination where a steam
derrick car places them in the structure.
The tracklaying machine has begun laying steel on side tracks about Midway
and will be laying on the main line west
first of next week. Barring accidents
and unexpected delays rolling stock will
be in Oroville not later than August.
About 2,000 graders with contractors
will soon be ready to move forward to
new contracts, presumably west of Keremeos. It is not improbable that the
C.P.R. may attempt a holdup at Hedley
of the V.,V. & E. by beginning construction there when the Hill contractors put
in an appearance with their graders. The
C.P.R. has almost invariably contested
the right of its competitor to cross its
line and as often failed when the matter
was argued in court or before the railway
commission. Hedley may yet see some
very lively days should the dirt fly from
Opposing shovels at the same time.
Engineer Amburn is surveying a spur
to the Vermilion Forks Co's coal mine.
Chief Engineer Hogeland is expected
in the Similkameen soon.
The V.,V. & E. will be laid with 90 lb.
steel rails.
It is understood that agreements for
purchase of right-of way via the tunnel
on J. Gulliford's ranch have been made
between the owners aiid the railway company.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of
the C.P.R., has been back from the old
country for nearly a month and the people of the Nicola and Similkameen districts are anxiously waiting for that vigorous policy of railway construction
which was said to be hanging fire until
he   returned.    If. the boast made, by
C.P.R. officials that their road would be
built here as quickly as any other it is
about time something was doing.
START UP COUSIN JACK.
A. Gallinger arrived in town last Saturday from Oshkosh, Wis., and will at
once begin the season's development
work ou the Cousin Jack at Boulder
creek. This mine has had a large
amount of work done on it in past years
which has confirmed the opinion of experts that a large body of high grade ore
exists at depth. Mr. Gallinger has engaged miners for the summer and will
further prove the property with the view
of installing machinery when railway
transportation is at hand. T. A. Rogers,
of Mountain View, Cal., associated with
Mr. Gallinger in mining properties, will
not come to Princeton this year owing to
earthquake disaster which caused him a
loss of $50,000 in the destruction of his
large store. Mr. Rogers has a lot of
friends here who will regret to hear of
his misfortune.
OBITUARY.
Died—At Princeton, May 24, 1906, the
Hedley Baseball Club, after a short illness of nine innings.
Friends and acquaintances please accept this intimation. Funeral private.
No flowers.   Hedley Gazette please copy.
IN MBMORIAM.
Pride goeth forth before a fall,
And, 'tis sad for Hedley to recall,
The memory of that game of ball
They played and lost at Princeton.
In  loving   memory  of the  Hedley Baseball
Club, ■who departed from the ball field, May 24,
1906, and according to the Hedley k Gazette are
now playing their games on paper.        '   •a*
"And verily I say unto all ye Frtjftagton
ites : They shall rise again from the dead
and smite you, even through the columns
of the Gazette."—Gospel according  to
Megraw.
The Princeton Baseball Club extends
to Hedley its heartfelt sympathy in their
recent sad bereavement, viz : The loss of
that easy, easy game with Princeton.—
Contributed by J. G. Macdoneix-
Quite a flurry of excitement has been
caused by the exhibition of some very
fine looking specimens of ore taken from
O'Lynn and Johnson's mineral claim on
Roche river. The ore is heavily mineralized and apparently contains nickel
and iron with good indications of other
values. Until assays have been made,
however, its worth is problematical.
The marriage of R. S. Collins, a popular young man of Hedley, to Miss Barbara Watt, of England, was recently solemnized at Winnipeg, where the groom
received the bride on her way from the
homeland. Star joins with many friends
in wishing the joyous couple an unruffled
voyage o'er the sea of Ifffe.
A. F. McDonald, of Grand Forks, one
of the unpaid contractors on the Midway
& Vernon railway, arrived in Princeton
Monday on a business visit.

FREE TRADE IN RAILWAYS.
It  is an  indication  of the high
appreciation  of  the   resources    of
. Princeton district when the railway
. king of   the  continent  invests at
: a close  estimate $100,000 in  land
' in this section.    No greater recommendation could be given Princeton
than the fact  of these large invests
ments  having  been  made  by one
; who has had all kinds of experts
and specialists  on  the  ground  to
report   on   those  resources.     The
. far  sighted   President of the Great
Northern  by  purchasing now does
it more  cheaply  than   he  would a
-year  later  and  he    also lays  the
' foundation  for  future tonnage out
of his possessions.    There are people  who  knock   Mr. Hill's  enterprise and are jealous of his success.
They shout "Canada for the Canadians" and rave  because  of their
impotence    to  despoil  him  of his
wealth.    So far as President Hill is
concerned he  has shown more loyalty to Canada  in the development
and  upbuilding  of it than  all his
narrow-minded detractors combined.
American capital is equally as good
and just as welcome as any other in
the  development  of the Princeton
district.
It must be gratifying to the people of Canada to see President Hill,
a citizen of the United States, investing millions of money in the
country. He has set a splendid
■example of enterprise and public-
spiritedness which might well be
copied by Canadian railway magnates and corporation. How different his policy to that of some
bonus-hunting Canadian railway
presidents who have bled the people white that they might swell the
coffers of their companies. Not
content with a large cash bonus
these rapacious gentlemen ask for
and get land grants which they
never earned; they make use of
threats to frighten municipal cor
porations and governments into
giving them freedom from taxation
for as many as twenty years ; they
always have a beggar standing at
the door of parliament asking some
favor or concession for their hungry company. President Hill has
never asked a dollar from the people of Canada. He offers to spend
$30,000,000 in developing.the coun
try west of Winnipeg to the coast
if parliament will only grant him
the ordinary privileges without any
subsidy. He has already ordered
26,000 tons of steel rails from Canadian rolling mills which could
as well have been procured in his
own country. Yet some monopolistic and hireling newspapers are
always busy trying to persuade the
public that Mr. Hill is going to rob
Canada of its trade and divert it
south of the international boundary line.
If there is a market for Canadian
produce south of the international
line Mr. Hill is the man to haul it
as cheaply as anybody. There is
a possibility of the V., V. & E.;
going to the coast through Washington as it has to be constructed
and operated on a business basis.
The grades as at present known in
Hope mountains can be bettered
and for about fifty miles beyond
that range there is not enough tonnage in prospect to pay for axle
grease that distance. Under those
conditions it would not be surprising if the line went south into
Washington where there is tonnage
all the way. All the knocker press
would howl if the line should deviate. These knocker-graft newspapers see no harm in Canadian
railroads going after trade into
American territory but it is all
wrong when an American road
dares to enter Canada in competition with existing systems and bid
for traffic.
It would be the maddest act of
man to put a straw in the way of
Mr. Hill's great undertaking.
Every industry in the country will
benefit by the inflow of this foreign
capital. If Canada cannot, for the
time being, have free commercial
trade, it can in lieu thereof at least
have free trade in railways.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Some malicious attacks have been
made on the member for Yale-
Cariboo by one or two of the more
rabid partizan press. He is charged
with various sins of omission and
commission which have no foundation in fact. It is alleged that he
has neglected the interests of his
constituents by not replying to certain correspondence. Mr. Ross has
won golden opinions from many
independent sources for the energy
and promptitude with which he has
conducted legislative' matters affecting his constituency. The telephone line, improved mail service
and important railway legislation
are all due to the tact and perseverance of Mr. Ross. The extension
of the telephone line to Copper
mountain and the Boundary was
not deemed advisable at the time
they were asked for and time has
justified the advice given the department.
It is the duty of the game ward
ens and justices of the peace in this
section to see that offenders of
the game laws are promptly dealt
with. Reports of deer slaughter
for bear bait and grouse for baiting
small traps are common.
