DOMINION COPPER CO
Representative Looking   Over
Ground on Copper Mountain—Will Likely
Invest—Consulting Engineer to
rive at Once and Make Exhaustive Examination.
Ar-
W. C. Thomas, smelter superintendent
for the Dominion Copper Co., with headquarters at Boundary Falls, arrived in
Princeton by special conveyance, accom
panied by Mr. Wilson, of P. Burns &
Company.
Mr. Thomas made a special trip in for
the purpose of looking over options held
by his company on Copper mountain, the
property of E. F. Voigt Although a
somewhat brief examination was made by
Mr. Thomas he expressed himself as well
pleased with the property and stated
that on his return home the company's
consulting engineer, Maurice M. Johnson, would be sent in to make a thorough
examination ofthe ground.
When questioned as to his opinion of
the copper prospects and the chances of
the Dominion Copper Co. becoming interested here, Mr. Thomas replied that
from what he had seen during his short
visit had very   favorably impressed  him.
At present he could not state what his
company woud do regarding operating
here, but if circumstances warranted it,
they would come in. as they were always
open to do business.
One thing, however, Mr. Thomas, was
quite frank in admitting, and that was
that Princeton was one of the most picturesque and charmingly situated places
he had yet seen and though this was his
first visit to Princeton he was of the
opinion that great things were in store
for the town, especially when transportation facilities were given us by rail.
Mr. Thomas left for Hedley on Friday
evening at 6 o'clock on his way home.

And Other Signs of Foul Play—Arrests Follow-Comparative Freight
Rates on C. P. R.
Nelson, May 14.—David Hosker, brother of D. J. Hosker, of Kamloops, was
found dead in the St. Elmo Hotel at
Trail, last night. His neck was broken
and other wounds were in evidence.
Gustave Douchard is under arrest on suspicion of being implicated in his death.
Natural Advantages.
Winnipeg, May 14.—Jas. S. Ewart, a
distinguished Canadian lawyer, is back
in Winnipeg. He is interested in the
question of freight rates on the C. P. R.
;and especially comparative rates granted
from W'nnipeg west and Vancouver east.
He contends that if Winnipeg has any
advantage it is a natural advantage and
not one conferred by the railway company. To run from Winnipeg west is
easy and the run from Vancouver east
eifficult and expensive.
Death of Vancouver Pioneer.
• Vancouver, May 14.—Dr. John C. Carroll, one of the pioneers of Vancouver,
passed away last evening.
Scotch Bank Clerks.
Toronto, May 14.—A number of young
Scotchmen arrived here yesterday for the

Divine service will be held in the
Court House on Sunday evening, Rev
Mr. Macdonald officiating.
Otter Creek and the Tulameen are rising rapidly.
Fire broke out this afternoon at about
2 o'clock on J. M. Wright's premises and
with a high wind blowing threatened to
prove disastrous. The fire brigade was
summoned, but by the time they arrived
the flames had been extinguished.
As a result of a conference between
Grand Trunk officials and Premier Mc-
Pride it is probable that an agreement
satisfactory to both parties will be arrived
at with reference to the occupation by
the railway ofthe Indian lands on Kaien
Island.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
A meeting of the board of managers of
the Presbyterian church will be held in
the Court House on Monday, the 20th, at
8 p.m.
A. F. McDonald, of Grand Forks, paid
Princeton a visit last week. Mr. McDonald is well known here and is interested
in several mining properties in this vicinity. He returned home on Saturday
morning.
E. F. Voigt left on a short visit to the
coast last Saturday.
J. R. Rennie left for Nicola on Wednesday morning.
Podunk Davis returned to town Monday over the Hope trail from Cedar Valley, having guided the Holman party
over the mountains from Tulameen City
to that point. The trip occupied some
four days and proved most difficult and
dangerous and Podunk reports some
thrilling experiences.
MAY TWENTY - FOUR
Will be Celebrated in Princeton-=Baseball and  Other
Events.
Tulameen   to Play Locals—Horse vs-
Man Race—Grand Dance in
the Evening.
Friday, the 24th of-May will be celebrated in Princeton by a baseball match/
between the local Tigers and the Tulameen City Wolves in the opening game
ofthe season. Both teams have been
practicing overtime for the past month
and ball of gilt edged variety should be
delivered when they meet. The Tulameen bunch will be accompanied down
by their backers and a big crowd is expected in town to take in the sport. The
team to uphold the!honors of Princeton
will be chosen from the following players: Campbell, Macdonell, Hughes.
Summers, Gibson, Young, Davis, New-
march, Huston, Kennedy, Bangs, Wam-
pole, Ryder, Carlson, Jas. Wallace aud
Pete Swanson.
Probably one of the most interesting
events of the day will be a matched race
for a distance of twenty-five yards to
decide whether Albert Johnston's horse
can cover the ground faster than a local
foot racer. The race is causing a good
deal of discussion and opinions are about
even as to the result. This event will
be pulled off prior to the ball game, at
about 2 o'clock.
In the evening a dance will be held in
the Court House at 8:30 o'clock. Excellent music has been secured and refresh
ments will be served. Tickets for the
dance have been placed at $1 and will be
on sale at Campbell's drug store and the
general stores. D- C. Wynne and J. R.
Campbell are looking after the music,
and Geo. Wardle, A. E. Jackson and H.
G. Godsoe are in charge of the refreshments, while the baseball committee is
composed of J. G. Macdonell, J. R.
Campbell and Thos. Hughes.
Although the day is not being observed
as a general celebration, a good time is
in store for evervone.
WHIPSAW CREEK BRIDGE.
Travellers over the Kennedy mountain
and Roach river trail report the bridge
over Whipsaw creek in a most dangerous
condition and unless immediate attention
is given it the bridge will be swept away
with the high water. This is the main
source of travel to Kennedy mountain
and just at this time of year is being constantly used by prospectors and others
and those supposed to look after these
matters should lose no time in getting
busy and give this matter attention.

Canada   has   decided   to   give Strangest of all t.he features of
<jreat Britain an 'intellectual preference,' to use the words of the Hon.
Rodolphe Lemieux, Postmaster-
General. The tendency has been
in evidence for some years, but the
month of May will see the realization of perfected arrangements.
"At the  present  moment newspapers and periodicals mailed from
Great Britain to Canada are charged a rate of eight  cents   a pound.
This is a prohibitive rate, and  for
years an agitation for reduction has
been  proceeding.    To  secure   that
reduction   it   was   necessary    that
Canada and Great  Britain   should
co operate.    Canada has  been willing for some time, but  the  Britis.i
Postmaster-General found it harder
to get into that frame of mind.' He
had   more   difficulties   to   contend
with,  more  postal   regulations   to
consider.      Finally,   however,   an
agreement has been reached whereby this class of postal matter will be
sent to Canada at   one-quarter  the
present rates.    People in this country will now be able to subscribe for
British newspapers and   periodicals
without being  taxed   from   one   to
five dollars a year for pottage.
"The thanks   of the   nation   are
due  to  Sir   William   Mulock,   Sir
Gilbert Parker, the Canadian Press
Association, the present Postmaster-
General of Canada and Great   Britain, and to a number of others who
have helped in   the  great   reform.
Sir William Mulock  was  the   first
official on this side to   take  it   up,
and Sir Gilbert Parker led   in   the
agitation in Great Britain.
"The 'preference' has still to be
explained. This new rate of two
cents a pound is higher than' the
rate charged on United States publications, which are m i ed to Canada at one cent a pound. Canada,
therefcr
movement is the circumstance that
a French-Canadian Premier and ;
French-Canadian Postmaster-Gei -
eral were called upon to bear the
burden of the delicate negotiation,
which were part of the final act ii.
this postal drama."
