DOMINION DAY, 1907
Nothing to Mar the Celebration—Everybody Enjoyed Events.
Princeton has every reason to feel
proud of the celebration the presented to
the public on July i and 2. Considering
the size of the town and the somewhat
dull times the citizens are deserving of
great credit for the generous manner in
which they subscribed to the celebration
fund. With the railway here next year
bringing with it prosperity on all hands
there is every hope that Princeton will
present a programme second to none in
the interior. There is just one cause for
complaint regarding the sports of this
year, and that.is the lack of proper or
ganization and the necessity of having
someone at the head of affairs who will
see that the programme is properly carried out and not allowed to drag. People like to see the different events pulled
off with snap keeping up the interest and
excitement.
The first item on the programme was
the base running, which was won by J.
R. Campbell, in 15 sec, with Sam Gibson second, 18 sec.
The Caledonian sports were then called
as follows: Running broad jump—ist,
J. R. Campbell, 17^ feet; 2nd, Indian
Tommy. Standing broad jump—ist, J.
R.Campbell, 9 ft. 4 in.; 2nd, Tommy.
Running hop, step and jump—ist. Tommy. 37 ft. 4 in. Boys race—ist, Austin
Henderson; 2nd, Sibley. This race was
afterwards run over when young Sibley
defeated Henderson. The girls race was
won by Theresa Col. This wound up the
sport for the forenoon.
After lunch the baseball match, between a picked team from Keremeos and
Hedley went up against the Princeton
team. There was a lot of unnecessary
time lost in starting the match, it being
2:30 before the first ball was pitched.
The locals had an easy time of it, winning
by 15 runs to 5. Some good ball was
played, but it was too one-sided from the
spectators point of view.
At the conclusion of the ball game the
first horse, free for all, was called, four
horses facing the starter. After a lot of
skirmishing they got away finishing witn
Ricter's Sir Henry in the lead. The second heat went to Al Johnston's grey 3-
year-old, after an exciting finish. The
third heat was taken by Sir Henry. The
pony race, 2 in 3, was run between the
heats of the first race and was captured
in two straights by Ricter's McGinty.
The hour being late the remaining
heats in the free-for all were postponed
till Tuesday morning, when after the
best race of the day Johnston's colt won
r by a nose. This necessitated another
trial and was won by Sir Henry in a close
finish. The saddle horse race was taken
by Ricter's Panhandle Pete. The cowboy race and bucking contest went to an
Indian named Witchie, and the klooch-
man's race to Quilchana belle. The last
last race of the day—the ladies—was won
by Mrs. W. Thomas on McGinty. with
Mrs. Godsoe, on Howse's Blackie, a good
second. The large crowd who witnessed
the sport were more than pleased with
the races. After lunch the drilling contest was put on, and only one team entering they were compelled to drill 30 inches
in 15 minutes for first money. Their
drills were poor quality and they only
succeeded in making 14 3-4 inches, taking
second money. Owing to lack of space a
more extended report is held over.
CHAMPION CREEK NOTES.
Platinum in Place—Country of High
Grade Propositions.
The upper Tulameen country, in the
Champion creek section particularly, is
attracting considerable attention just now
owing to the presence of platinum and
other rare minerals. Professional men
from various parts of the world have examined the ore deposits containing platinum and also the gravel beds. Platinum in place was first found by Dan
Coutenay, who, according to his own
statement, has traced it to where it can
be extracted in commercial quantities.
A group of claims located by "Prof."
Coutenay and partners last year has been
bonded to Colorado financiers for $80,
000.
Messrs. Coutenay, Smith and Riley are
camped on the divide between Champion
and Slate creeks, better known as Coute
nay mountain. They are running a
crosscut on one of their platinum claims,
having completed 20 feet. The walls are
ol serpentine and diorite.
J. Riley owns a group of claims to the
south of the Coutenay proposition. Tom
Lee and Harris and Britain are located on
the north and have fine showings.
The general impression is that a drop
in the bucket has not been found in comparison with what remains to be discovered. The country is all vacant for 30
miles south of Mt. Coutenay.
Prospectors are advised not to bring in
horses yet as there will be no feed for
three weeks. Outfits can be packed in
from Otter Flat or Granite cieek.
Those who have seen this country dub*
it the promised land of the prospector
and the paradise' of the scientist and
sportsman.
Among those who represented Hedley
at the sports were: Fred Revely, J. G.
Shier, Roy Jamieson, Jack Edmunds, W.
C. Winkler, F. H. French, Jno. Jackson,
H. Swan.
Dr. Whillans of Hedley was summoned to Toronto on Tuesday where his
family is, owing to his little boy having
been seriously scalded. Dr. Schon will
attend emergency cases at Hedley during
his absence.

^ALEXANDER, THE PROPHET.
"What Princeton has a prophet few peo-
p&e^seem to be aware. Like the late
notorious J. Alexander Dowie our prophet's name is Alexander also. He has
been in retirement at Nine-Mile for some
years but recently received an inspired
message from the angel Gabriel to branch
out into the prophetic business. His
statements are lucid and show little of
that dementia which was so marked in
the Chicago "Elijah,"
His prophecy that Vancouver would
have fire and brimstone poured out on it
if its citizens did not quit bucking the
Great Northern and the V.,V. & E. rail
way is a cold or hot warning, as they may
take it, which all will hope may be the
means of infusing new life into tbe sad,
slow inhabitants of the city by the sea
and awaken them to a proper appreciation of the resources of the Similkameen.
The "ghost of Nine-Mile," or Al'ex=-
ander II, says that King Edward will"
shortly cede Ireland to the Irish and that*
Scotland and Wales will be freed from
Saxon rule and prophecies that Canada
will be an independent nation within the
next 25 years. He also forecasts a change
in the present government of B.C.,
McBride having reached the zenith of
his fame his downfall may be expected
at any time. The Princeton P O., he
says, will soon be restored to C. E.
Thomas and Nine-Mile will, as soon as
the cabins are built, become headquarters for mining experts and the angel
Gabriel. So ends the prophecies of Alexander for the present.    What next?
MISREPRESENTATION.
Political Animus Causes Low Grade
Press to Prevaricate.
The Hedley Gazette of the 13th publishes the following item from the Greenwood Ledge: "In a criminal action before His Honor Judge Brown, under the
Speedp Trials Act, it came out in evidence that Smith Curtis bad got the
price of two ranches from the witness,
presumabl}' with a view to find a purchaser. The ranches were in the Similkameen district.. The negotiations took
place a few days previous to the election.
Since the election, strange to say, the
bottom has dropped out ofthe deal."
The intention of the Gazette in publishing this article was of course to cast
reflections on Smith Curtis and make it
appear that Curtis had endeavored to
corrupt a voter in his behalf in the recent elections. When a little light is
thrown on the situation the scene is
entirely changed. A man by name of
Sinclair wished to open up a store on
Anarchist mountain ane not having the
ready cash wherewith to stock it, borrowed a $1,000 from Mrs. Gillespie, who
resides on Anarchist mountain, to buy
goods with. Sinclair goes to the coast
and comes back again without goods or
monev, whereupon he was summoned to
account for his actions. In his evidence,
before Judge Brown he stated he was
good for more than the amount in property, which consisted of a ranch in the
Similkameen. When asked the worth of
it he gave the opinion of Smith Curtis as
to its value, the latter gentleman having
offered to find a purchaser for the land
at the price stated. To those who know
the Gazette no astonishment will be expressed at its feverish desire to print anything that would in any way refleet on
the man who dared to oppose its master
in the political contest so recently passed.
The truth is far from its purpose.

QUESTION OF FACTS.
The Hedley Gazette has become
notorious for its wilful exaggeration of facts and perversion of the
truth generally. In a recent issue
it said : " Mr. Shatford was accused
by Smith Curtis last winter, of seeking to bribe the electors of that section (Five-Mile) by the vulgar expenditure of public money on the
roads leading to their ranches in
order to catch their votes." Mr.
Curtis never criticised Mr. Shatford
for an attempt to give the Five-
Mile settlers a road, he only scored
the representative for negligence in
giving One-Mile settlers and the
travelling public a through road to
Aspen Grove and Nicola. Besides
shortening the road to these points
by about fifteen miles from Princeton it would open up a rich mineral
and . agricultural section. This
road has been agitated for by the
settlers and mineral owners affected
for the last ten years. And it did
look I fishy 1 that Mr. Shatford
being fully cognizant of this agitation in his expiring four-year term
of representation should order construction of the road as far as the
last voter lived on the eve of' a general election. The Gazette editor
should take an occasional look at
a map and note the geographical
position-of One and Five-Mile In
that way he would not be so liable
to make confusive statements and
also those at variance with fact.
One-Mile is the road Mr. Curtis
criticised and not withont cause.
Now, the Five-Mile settlers are
waiting patiently for a road. Will
the Gazette as fervently advocate a
road for those settlers as it jumped
to the futile defence of Mr. Shatford.
jumped to $25 an ounce, where it
remained until Sept. i, 1906, when
it leaped to the unprecedented value
of $34 an ounce. Mr. Horton's
report also shows that the production of platinum in the United
States increased from 200 ounces in
1904 to 318 ounces in 1905. This
report is published as an advance
chapter of the annual volume,
"Mineral Resources of the United
States, 1905," and is distributed
free of charge, on application to the
United States Geological Survey.
There is reason for believing that
the present high price in copper will
continue says the Mining Reporter.
First, the restlessness of labor in a
majority of the large copper mining and smelting countries resulting in a decreased output for the
first quarter of 1907 as compared
with the corresponding period of
last year. Second,, the available
supply of the metal is comparatively small. Third, the foreigtf
demand for the metal has greatly
increased since the first of the year.
Fourth, the electrical apparatus in
manufacturing industries show an
increased business and withal a
larger consumption of copper.
Fifth, the largest operators are ih
unanimous accord as to the maintenance of both the demand for and
the present price of the metal.
The Coieman, Alb., coal and
coke plant is now working full capacity and 1,600 tons of coal are
being raised daily. About 1,300
tons of this are being sold for steam
purposes, the remainder being converted into coke which is sold to
smelters in the Boundary and Kootenay. Great energy has been
shown in the development of this
new property.
NOTES AND, COMMENTS.
The year 1907 saw a phenomenal rise in the price of platinum and
a greatly increased production in
the United States. The annual report of the United States Geological Survey on the production of
platinum, prepared this year by F.
W. Horton, contains details of exceptional interest. It shows that
early in March, 1905, the price of
ingot platinum advanced from
$19.50 an ounce to $21 an ounce,
surpassing gold in value. On April
i, 1905, the price fell to $2o.50^and
remained firm at this quotation
until  February   1,   1906,   when it
Let me mail you free, to prove merit,
samples of my Dr. Shoop's Restorative,
and my book on either dyspepsia, the
heart, or the kidneys. Address me, Dr.
Shoop, Racine, Wis. Troubles of the
stomach, heart or kidneys, are merely
symptoms of a deeper ailment. Dont
make the common error of treating symptoms only. Symptom treatment is treating the result of your ailment and not
the cause. Weak stomach nerves—the
inside nerves—means stomach weakness,
always. And the heart and kidneys as
well, have their controlling or inside
nerves. Weaken these nerves and you
inevitably have weak vital organs. Here
is where Dr. Shoop's Restorative has
made its fame. No other remedy ever
claims to treat the "inside nerves." Also
for bloating, biliousness, bad breath or
complexion, use Dr. Shoop's Restorative.
Write for my free book now. Dr. Shoop's
Restorative sold by J. R. Campbell.
Piles get quick and certain relief from
Dr. Shoop's Magic Ointment. Please
note it is made alone for Piles, and its
action is positive and certain. Itching,
painful, protruding or blind piles disappear like magic by its use. Large nickel-
capped glass jars 50 cents. Sold by J. R.

Weak Kidneys, surely point to weak kidney
Nerves. The Kidneys, like the, Heart, and the
Stomach, find their weakness, not in the organ
itself, but in the nerves that control and guide
and strengthen them. Dr. Shoop's Restorative is
a medicine specifically prepared to reach these
controlling nerves. To doctor the Kidneys alone,
is futile. It is a waste of time, and of money as
well.
If your back aches or is weak, if the urine
scalds, or is dark and strong, if you have symptoms
of Brights or other distressing or dangerous kidney disease, try Dr. Shoop's Restorative a month—
