PRINCETON, B.C, SATURDAY, MARCH 3J, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
ARE LOYAL AND TRUE!
Liberal Associations Organized
are Now in Thorough
Working Order.
Resolution of Confidence.in Leaders
and Promise Loyal Support of
. Those Statesmen.
| At the meeting of the Princeton Liberal Association on Thursday evening
the revision and- adoption of a constitution and bylaws occupied the attention
of members during greater part of ses
sion—the final revision being deferred
to subsequent meeting. The treasurer
was authorized to purchase stationery
and books.
The following resolution wa.s. introduced and passed unanimously : " Resolved that the Princeton Liberal Association is in hearty and loyal accord with
the leader of the government of Canada,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and with thre leader
of the Opposition in this province, J. A.
"Macdonald, M.P.P., and we pledge our
support and adherence to both ; their
successful efforts to promote the general
welfare and honest government of the
country being worthy of all praise."
The meeting adjourned till Saturday,
April 7th, at 2 p.m., when those living
in the vicinity of Princeton are invited
to attend also.   •
A strong Liberal Association has been
formed at Hedley with the following
officers: President, Dr. Whillans; Vice-
President, J. Campbell; Sec.-Treas., J.
Love.
Major ! Why did you throw down the
shovel or the bayonet and take up the
pen? .By what strange delusion or in
fiuence came you to think you could
write or even . scribble ? Do you ever
read over the garbage stuck in the Gazette
and see what a mass of jnmbled, self-
contradictory rubbish and falsification
there is in it about the Princeton post
office paragraph and the Star ?
To make doubly good the challenge
of the Star of Feb. 17, $100 has been deposited in reliable and disinterested hands
—the Canadian Bank of Commerce. It
is up to the Gazette to accept it or violate
every rule of the game and code of
honor. The Star was first to make a
challenge and made no attempt at bluff
ing by putting the money in the hands
of a pal as the Gazette did.
The Gazette is either knocking some
person or family or looking for trouble in
every issue. Assassin-like it sees "stabs"
for Fairview and tries to foment trouble
with its citizens. It is not pleased with
the geography of the Similkameen and
wants to change the designation of places,
and so on its hogwash of vanity and dis
honesty is evident in every sentence.
Back to your shovel, Major, or perhaps
Mr. Shatford would give you a job herding Chinese.    Au revoir.
MAN OR MOUSE-WHICH?
m
Gallant " Major " Dare not Face Star's
Challenge and Sneaks to Cover.
In last week's Gazette the following
scare head appears : " There is no Backdown "—"The Gazette's Money is in the
Hands of Government Agent Hunter to
Back Up its Position"—"Now Let the;
^jtar Put Up or Shut Up."
The gallant "Major." when penning
those bragging words no doubt chuckled
to himself and said : ' Ah, I have him
on the hip now; this is unanswerable
argument; this is- finality indeed ; he
will never ope his mouth again on the
subject. "_$jyi|v
Poor, poor Major! Still living in a
fool's paradise. Since the days when you
sat on a- stump as road boss looking at
/honest men work you .have not been a
sane man. Though you still live on government pap as of yore yet we fear the
smell of printer's ink and the corking
cares of editorship have addled your
think chamber and ruined that fine, military bearing, once the pride of the Royal
Backdown regiment.   Poor, brain-warped
ROADS NEED REPAIRS

WEDDING BELLS.
The wedding announcement of Miss
Madeleine Augusta Perry to Mr. Edwin
Barr Hall has been received. The happy
event took place at Napanee on the 21st
inst. at 2 o'clock, p.m. The bride is a
stranger to Princeton but as the wife of
a respected^pioneer citizen is assured of
a hearty welcome from a host of his
jfriends. Mr. Hall's pretty residence on
the banks of the Similkameen is all in
readiness for the home-coming, the fresh
blooming spring flowers around the house
waiting to salute the happy pair with
sweetest stniles.^-Mr. and_Mrs. Hall are
now making a continental honeymoon
tour and will reach Princeton in the early
part of April. The Star extends hearty
congratulations. ; gj
HELP FOR THE STARVING.
The terrible famine that is raging in
Japan has placed a million people on the
death roll of starvation and the pleadings for help appeal to the sympathies
of all humanity. This pitiful condition
is no fault of this brave and industrious
people but is due to failure of the rice
crop. The Dominion government has
donated $25,000 to relieve the Japanese
in their national calamity which all too
soon befell them after- a bloody, costly,
yet victorious war. Organized effort is
being made in Canada and the United
States to allay the pangs of hunger and
suffering. The children and adults of
the Tulameen Sunday School ahd'trthers
are invited to contribute tomorrow at the
school toward the "famine fund," which
will be sent to the Treasurer of the Ontario Sunday School Association, Toronto.
Travellers and teamsters complain of
the condition of the trunk road which
badly needs attention now. After the
frost came out of the ground the hanging boulders and loosened pebbles with
earth came down the steep sides of cuts
and filled the wagon tracks 'It is almost-
impossible ' for freighters to pass these
obstructions, so they frequently have to
do road repairing on their own account.
The new minister of public works has
an opportunity to make a record in this
section if he will only have the roads
kept in good repair.    Will he do it ?
C Clay catne up from Keremeos on
Monday on a business visit. He reports
business quiet in the lower section of the
Similkameen. but it is only the lull that
precedes all renewed animation and the
awakening dawn of a livelier day. Come
again Mr. Clay.
Dr. Schon   has  received'a letter from
Archdeacon  Pentreath  stating that Rev.
E.  R.   Bartlett,   M.A.,  of Fernie,. is expected to minister  to the parish embrac
ing  Princeton   and   Hedleyi     The  rev.
gentleman has a family and  will  likely
reside here if a dwelling can be had. The
date of his arrival is not fixed.
/   The cable and   wire necessary to con
nect by  telephone Penticton  with Kelowna is being laid and strung and is expected to be in operation in about a fortnight.
Regular monthly meeting of the board
of trade will be held next Thursday at 8
p.m. The election of a secretary and
other important matters require attention.
PRINCETON BASEBALL CLUB.
The organization of a baseball club
was perfected at a meeting held on Tuesday night in the board of trade rooms.
On motion of Messte. Ryder and Camp
bell, J. H.Jackson was elected president.
Geo. Wardle was appointed manager and
(J. R. Campbell, captain ^subscription
committee, Messrs. Campbell, Summers
and Wardle; sec.-treasurer, J. G. Mac-
donnell; membership fee, $1. It is expected that matches will be arranged with
other clubs in the Similkameen during
the coming summer. The Princeton
baseball club is an established fact and
anyone wishing to join will find the membership roll at J. R. Campbell's drug
store.
Reply to  Presiding Military Genius
on the Gazette.
Open jitter to the " Major : "
Dear "Major"—Your reply in the
March 22nd issue of the Gazette to my
letter in the Star, reached me last mail.
I regret that my arguments were not coherent enough for your comprehension
(which is probably the reason you made
such a. weak attempt, at answering them')
but I am informed that many of ttie Hedley people appreciated them greatly in
spite of their incohere'ncy.(?)
You are mistaken, dear "Maj." in
thinking that I was angry when I wrote
the letter in question—or ever have been
angry in connection with this matter: I
have enjoyed our little controversy exceedingly. The Star and Gazette reader's
are enjoying it also I am told, so if you
are getting any pleasure from it, it is a
most enjoyable affair to all concerned.
So you would have us believe that the
editor of a paper has no choice but to use
the headlines furnished by" a correspondent. I suppose the position a contribution will occupy in a paper is also decided
by the contributor ! It is really sad to
think of how little the poor editors have-
to say nowadays about the makeup of
their papers.
We are also to believe that you have
reformed and quit all your evil ways
(professionally speauing) including that
of publishing anonymous contributions.
Hold up your hand and call on high
heaven to witness the vow. Major. People who have known you a long time
think you are about as likely to run a
clean, independent paper as is.the leopard to change his spots, or the proverbial sow's ear to be made into a silk
purse. But then you know there is always a possibility of people being mistaken. At any rate while there is life
there is hope and I for one would be loth
to discourage a sincere effort on your
part to reform.
I am pleased to note that you had no
intention of closing the Star to me but
simply wished to punish me for getting
"gay" and being too "cheeky." What
an alt*Hfficient excuse for stooping to
what everyone, not an absolutely blind
paitizan, recognized as a contemptible
act!
Evidently the crime of crimes in your
eyes is to get "cheeky" to the mighty
moulder of public opinion who sways
public sentiment by his oracle-like utterances from the- sanctum of the Gazette
print shop. The heinousness of my
offense has just commenced to dawn upon
me: but I would plead in extenuation
for my wrongdoing the fact that I did not
realize the enormity of my crime. I
imagined I was simply butting into a
very mediocre pen pusher, running a
small country weekly in the interest of a

THE STAR'S BIRTHDAY.
The years roll by. For those in
middle life the scroll of time is being
folded up with startling rapidity.
Fifty-two weeks and fifty-two numbers of the Star have gone into an
irrecoverable past. Whatever mistakes have been made in the volume
just closed they cannot be remedied
by murmuring regrets. But the
aim and purpose of the Star will
continue to be, until at least, another pen shall guide it, to fearlessly stamp out evil and correct error
coming within its purview and to
attract to this country a vigorous
and progressive class of people. Any
newspaper that does not thus aim
'twere better never to have been
born. No other medium has quite
the influence for good or ill as the
press and realizing this fact the Star
will be arrayed with those who desire a better observance of the laws
of the land and an uninterrupted
flow of justice from those whose
duties are to enforce or administer
those laws. To this end it will
aim at the purification of the legislatures. These are the great fountains of corruption which if allowed
to go on unchecked by the press
will permeate every business institution, the bench and society generally.
While maintaining a loyal adherence to its political party the Star
will not hesitate to expose error
or corruption in a Liberal government when necessary. Independence of the right sort in a newspaper cannot be otherwise than a
source of strength to a party but
an independence in man or newspaper which sits on the fence waiting for the highest bid is despicable and always brings contempt for
those who assume that attitude.
Rather that the Star's light should
go out altogether than forsake its
independence. Recent events have
shown that fully one third of the
party press of this province have
not got an independent fibre in their
makeup. Their attempt to smother
a great scandal was really the hardest blow they could have hit the
Conservative party. Had they
honestly criticized the government
and caused the expulsion of the
offenders even Liberals would have
admired their courage and the public generally approved their course.
The abject servility of a press will
sap the foundation of any political
party and cause it to crumble—of
the truth of which there is abundant evidence within the past
month.
What hopes and fears, what trials
and privations, what loneliness and
discouragement the Star has encountered since first it became one
of the innumerable heavenly bodies
which shed their sparkling light on
a groping humanity. Seven long
years of waiting amid an awful
stillness is a trying experience.
So quiet at times has it been that
even the sound of footsteps has
startled the "devil" in his sanctum and caused his thinnish locks
to stand out like quills on a porcupine. But all this and more goes
with journalism on the far west
borders, of civilization. Soon the
iron horse will round the curve of
time then all aboard for prosperous
days. Another birthday for the
Star will find the railroad at its
door receiving and discharging its
daily mails. Old hardships and
grievances will be forgotten in the
hurry and bustle of the new era
now dawning.
CERTIFICATE OF THE REGISTRA
TION OF AN EXTRA-PROVINCIAL, COMPANY.
I Companies Act, 1897."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The great calamity which has
overtaken our nearest western
neighbor, Japan, where the impending death roll from famine threatens
to exceed all losses of life in the
recent war, will cause profound
sympathy throughout the British
empire. The touch of friendship
between Britain and Japan has been
strengthened by a treaty recently
ratified and she is now the only
ally of the British Empire. Japan
is the most progressive nation in
the world. She is a large consumer
of Canadian produce and manufactures as well as of copper and the
precious metals. The pitiful wail
of this famine stricken nation is
sure to reach many sympathizing
friends throughout the world and
Princeton is sure not to turn a deaf
ear to the appeals of the brave little
brown men.
Since the resignation of attorney-
general Wilson was announced the
conservative press of the province
have been busy nominating Mr.
Wilson's successor, and pretty nigh
every tory lawyer in the house has
been suggested in turn. The Cran-
brook Herald referring to Fernie's
M.P.P., says : "W. R. Ross will
never be attorney-general. To accept the portfolio he would have to
go back to his constituency for confirmation and he never could be
elected there again."—News.
The question of acquiring a
dumping ground for Princeton to
prevent fouling the rivers and wells
demands immediate attention.
I hereby certify that the " Oregon &
British Columbia Mining and Developing
Co., Ltd.," has this day been registered
as an Extra-Provincial Company under
the " Companies Act, 1897," to carry out
or effect all or any of the objects of the
Company to which the legislative authority of the Legislature of British Columbia extends.
The head office of the Company is
situate at the City of Portland, Multnomah County, State of Oregon.
The amount of the capital of the Company is one hundred and fifty thousand
dollars, divided into one million five
hundred thousand shares of ten cents
each.
The head office of the Company in this
Province is situate at Copper Mountain,
Princeton, B. C, and Robert Cramer,
miner, whose address is the same, is the
attorney for the Company (not empowered to issue or transfer stock).
The Company is limited.
Given under my hand and seal of office
at Victoria, Province of British Columbia,
this 26th day, of January, one thousand
nine hundred and six
[i.s.] S. Y. WOOTTON,
Registrar of Joint Stock Companies.
Thevobjects for which the Company has
been established and registered are :—
To develop mining claims and to
operate mines and mining properties for
any of the previous metals, and to engage
in said business only, with power to do
all things pertaining thereto in the mineral States and Territories of the United

its Board of Directors for the time being
deems necessary to advance the interest
of the Company, or may, /rotn time to
time, by its by-laws, resolutions or otherwise determine necessary or convenient

It is said that Lessing, the German author, when he became absorbed in his
work, was the most absent minded man
that ever lived. One time he called at
his own house and asked if Prof Lessing
was at home. As it was dark the servant
did not recognize him, and said : "He is
not in." -"Oh, very well," said Lessing
"I will call another time."
Joseph Jefferson was a strong believer
in early marriages, and never missed an
opportunity to impress his convictions
upon young men. In an address at Yale
he said :-"I abominate bachelors. The
older they grow the more conceited they
become. I was talking to one, and I
asked him why he did not marry. He
parried the question by telling about dif
ferent young women he had known, finding some fault with each one. But it
appeared that all of them had married.
"You are in danger of getting left," I
said to him. "You had better hurry up
before it is too late." " 'Oh,' said the
bachelor, 'there aie justfas good fish left
in the sea.' " 'I know that,' I said, 'but
the bait—isn't there danger of the bait
becoming stale ?"
Moliere, the playwright, was discussing
marriage with a courtier. "Why is it,"
said the courtier, "that in some countries
a king may assume the crown af the age
of fourteen, but cannot marry until
eighteen ?" "Because it is more difficult
to mle a wife than a kingdom," was his
»eply.
In a murder case tried before a certain
judge, counsel for the defendant urged :
"It is better that ninety and nine guilty
persons escape than that one innocent
- man should suffer. In his charge to the
jury the judge admitted the soundness of
the proposition, but added : "Gentlemen,
I want you to understand that the ninety-
and-nine have already escaped."
"I tell you, man was not meant to live
alone. The young man in business who
is not married is seriously handicapped.'
"That's what! £fot being able to put
his property in . his wife's name, he's at
the mercy of his creditors."
