ODDFELLOWS ORGANIZE.
Lodge cf this Benevolent. Order to lie
Instituted in Princeton.
The Oddfellows of Princeton arid district have^for some time past:had. in process of, organization'a' lodge of'that well
§ known and useful order. Application
to the Grand Master offS&ritish Columbia
has. been made fox a. dispensation to institute a lodge about the roiddle'of April
in the hall above the S.tar office, Bridge
street. The charter members are as follows :: D.>'M. French, S. McCoskery, P.
Y. Smith, J.'BurreH, H. S. Godsoe, N.
Huston, J! G.CainpbeH and D. Sketchley.
The  lodge  will  be  officially   known as
'o'Np. 52 of the Independent Order of Oddfellows of North America^'.^ip    v'p
Oddfellows were founded as a fraternal
society first in  1812 in.'"England at Man
Chester,   from    whence  the .designation
Manchester  Unity originated and'which
has a  membership  of  1,000,000.    It ..is
.more than  a half century  ago since the
separate  organization   of the  Independ
ent Order in the United States—its rami
flcations now extend over the two Americas and   the isl'e&^of.the/sea, numbering
■ 31,000,000 of members.   ..Oddfellowship is
h'ow,worldwide' in 'behevolence'and -brotherhood   haying.  ils.: lodges,   in  farther
« India, in Turkey,- Africa, Siberia and the

afford'i.a market for logs as well as employ a'i'St of men.
The woricing tunnel now being driven
at the United Empire on One-Mile is in a
distance of 260 . feet. This tunnel,, for
reasons peculiar to the property, is a
(diagonal crosscut, cutting the coal formation, which adjoins the igneous rocks
(which latter enclose the ore body) diagonally. In the.last 70 feet two seams of
coal have been cut in this tunnel,.each
Seam having about 4 feet of good, clean
coal.' The face of the tunnel is now approaching the contact, with the big ore
body, which it is' expected will be cut
into in kbput another 100 feet. Ore will
then be'extracted and stored.ih readjjrress

CHILD TOOK SULPHURIC ACID;;
Liquid Burns Lips and Tongue—Hopes
of no Permanent Disfigurement.
A very distressing accident happened
on Wednesday to the charming little
two-year old daughter of L- C. Wynne
while she was in her father's laboratory.
It appears the little one had, unnoticed,
laid hold of a small cup of sulphuric
acid, evidently intending to taste it. In
.doing so her lips and tongue were burnt
to a blister and spilling it on her coat
the powerful stuff ate its way through the
cloth, burning the skin in several places.
The child suffered intensely until Dr.
Schon gave her relief and in a few hours
ishe was pronounced out of. danger.
"Biddy" is a general favorite and all will
!be glad to hear of her complete recovery from tbe cruel burns. Sulphuric acid
is the chemical name'for.' 'oil of vitriol'
;and is very dangerous aud destructive of
^organic matter.
Apropos of the above accident it maybe stated that as a safeguard against like
occurences resulting from poisons or dangerous liquids of any kind a lock and
key bottle has been recently invented
'which is recommended by physicians,
druggists and toxicologists. The stopper
locks automatically and cannot be released, except by the key, which may be
carried in.' a. pocket or attached to the
bottle. .They ccst very little more than
a welhfinished ordinary bottle.
CANADIAN MINING INSTITUTE.
The following are the officers of the
Canadian Mining Institute who were
elected at the recent meeting in Toronto:
President, Frederick Keffer, Greenwood,
B. C; vice presidents, Dr. J. Bonsall
Porter, Montreal, W. G. Miller, Toronto,
'and W. Fleet Robertson, Victoria, B. C;
secretary, H. Mortimer Lamb, Montreal]
treasurer, J. Stevenson Brown, Montreal.
FISH ARE NOT PROTECTED.
The attention of residents of One-Mile
has been drawn to the serious depletion
of fish in that stream, which has led them
to make searching inquiry as to the probable or real cause. Their efforts have not
resulted in a thoroughly satisfactory solution of the question. It is now up to the
proper authorities to make investigation
and remedy the mischief complained of.
The settlers on One-Mile are not alone
in their grievance, for it seems that the
residents along the Similkameen have a
similar kick. The poisonous acids released from the reduction works at Hedley are having a deadly effect upon the
fish of the Similkameen river and unless
£his nuisance is removed there will be
very serious results to the piscatorial life
of this section. With the proposed gun
license, preserves and more stringent fish
and game regulations there is abundance
of law in. sight—whose duty is it to enforce the law ?
OUR GREAT RESOURCES.
At the meeting ofthe Associated Boards
of Trade, held in Greenwood last week,
President G. O. Buchanan added an appendix to his annual address, in which
he estimated the value of the mineral
and lumber produced in southern Kootenay and Yale, including the' Similkameen, during the year 1906 as follows:
Total value of minerals, $16,954,975;
Lumber, 147,000,000 ft, $2,044,000; or a
grand total of $18,998,975.

I RAILWAY IS COMING !"
Crossing divides, scaling mountain ranges, tunnelling the hills and
bridging the rivers and canyons a
path has ueen found for the 'iron
horse' through the Similkameen to
the Pacific coast. It has been a
long time since the first survey of
this district was made for a railway.
To those who have been waiting for
construction of the road the time
seems to have been unnecessarily
drawn out. Delays and disappointments due to political crises and
shuffling marked the early career of
the projected line. Finally, after
many rumors and mere guessing,
railway construction began from
Midway west about a year ago and
the V , V. & E. became a living,
moving actuality—its decade of
sleep was ended. The people of
Princeton and other parts of the
Similkameen had every reason to
think that the days of disappointment and procrastination were at
an end. They were told through
the usually veracious medium of
the press that construction would
be rushed to Princeton, where there
was abundance of fodder (coal) for
Uncle Jim's horses.' No less authorities than the vice-president and
chief engineer of the Great Northern stated that steel would be laid
to Oroville in September last and
to Princeton by February. How
far these anticipations were wide of
realization is too well known to
repeat.
So far as can be predicted within
the limits of accuracy, even with
less progress than was made last
year, the raiis should be at Princeton by September. The scarcity of
labor, war or financial stringency
are contingencies always to be reckoned with in building railways, but
any or all of these are so remote in
consideration with the V., V. & E.
that no anxiety is caused. Nearly
one hundred miles of grading was
done last year, which leaves a wide
margin for hope that the distance
of some forty miles from Keremeos
to Princeton will be built this season. While official announcements
are subject to errors of judgment
as with all humanity there is eminent reason for believing that the
latest statement from the engineer-
in-chief  will   be verified.    H; savs
that steel will be in Princeton in
August and has also given a standing order to the Vermilion Forks
Co. for the delivery of fifty tons,
daily, of coal to the Great Northern for its own use on arrival at
Princeton.        Iftj?;
Everything considered the prospects could not be much brighter
than at present. A more favorable
time for investment could not be
desired—when there is no.excitement and sensational prices unheard
of. Real estate, agricultural lands,
coal and copper claims.timber areas,
townsites, and mill and smelter sites
are all in the market now at first
cost. With vast possibilities and
immense known mineral resources
every inducement that a new and
rich country could offer to the investor is here. Two railways are
tapping at the door of the Similkameen and these with the quickened
pulsations of commerce which follow must induce capital and population to flow this way. The end of
doubt and despondency is at hand.
Tbe busiuess of the man with the
'hammer' is gone and the dyspeptic
pessimist will soon have to retreat
to the hills or the backwoods. Forward, Princeton !

NOTES  AND COMMENTS.
Among a number of resolutions
passed by the Associated Boards of
Trade at the convention held at
Greenwood recently was one urging
tbe Provincial government to make
an appropriation for the purpose of
exhibiting ore samples at the
Alaska-Yukon exposition to beheld
in Seattle this year. Regarding
the Sunday Observance Act the
Boards wish to restrict labor as
much as possible to six days a week
but submit that the government
should not enforce the measure till
all interests were consulted onthe
more difficult points involved. The
Dominion Labor Bill for the prevention of strikes and lockouts was
also considered and its early enforcement recommended. Resolutions regarding the export of coal
and coke ; the Kootenay Central
railway ; the lead bounty ; public
ownership of telephones and a "bet
ter Imperial news service from London " were adopted. The aid of
the Princeton board of trade could
well be extended to the furtheranc:
of some of these important resolutions.
With the Education bill, Home
Rule, the remodelling-of the House
of Lords, the conference of the colonial premiers and the New Theology there is plenty of food for
thought and talk in the 'tight little
isle' beyond the big pond.
These muddy days it is very consoling and helpful to have even the
promise of a sidewalk ! What
about Bridge Street ? Oh, it will
keep till next election campaign.

GEOLOGICAL   REPORT   ON  THE
SIMILKAMEEN.
[Continued from last issue.]
The second class contains larger ore
bodies, lying parallel to the strike of the
schists These may be either quartz veins
or mineralized bands in the schists. These
carry some gold, aud the copper and iron
sulphides; the highest values are in cop
per.
Only two claims have been Crown-
granted and surveyed, and the amount of
development work done on all of them is
not sufficient to prove the ore bodies, or
test their permanence. The surveyed
claims are the Pasayton and the Sailor
Jack. On both these are small fissures;
on the Pasayton a fissure four inches
wide, from which the samples were taken
to test for tellurides; and on the Sailor
Jack a fissure two feet wide cutting across
a hornblende schist.
The greatest ainoun': of work has  been
done on ihe Red Star and Anaconda dims
On these there is a belt of soft  talc  and
chloritic schist about 400 feet wide, striking 125 deg. dipping vertically, and lying
between mica schists.    It  appears to  be
traversed by a fault  plane,  along which
bunches and lenses of white feldspar and
quartz have been found, and  which were
firs" worked for their gold  content.     On
development the vein  ran  into the  talc
schist, which proved to be highly mineralized with copper carbonates and cuprite,
and which was  farther on   replaced  by
bornite and   chalcopyrite.     Along  with
these    were    pyrite    and    arsenopyrite,
siderite and some blende.     A  shaft  has
been sunk in the  tunnel   to  a  depth  of
sixty feet, but this had to be abandoned
on accunt ofthe gases.  Some native copper occurs  as sheets in  little slips and
fault planes in the schist.
Several other claims have been staked
in this district, and though there are
some indications of high grade ore occurring, the only work done on them has
just sufficient to enable the Copper Mountain owners to hold their claim.

Stomach trouble is .but a symptom of, and not
In itself a true disease. We think of Dyspepsia,
Heartburn, and Indigestion as real diseases, yet
they are symptoms' only of a certain specific
Nerve sickness—nothing else.
It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Shoop
in the creation of that now very popular Stomach
Remedy—Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Going direct
to the stomach nerves, alone brought that success
and favor to Dr. Shoop and his Restorative. Without that original and highly vital principle, no
such lasting accomplishments were ever to be had.
For stomach distress, bloating, biliousness, bad
breath and sallow complexion, try Dr. Shoop's
Restorative—Tablets or Liauid—and see for yourself what it can and will do. We sell and cheerfully recommend
Dr. Shoop's
Restorative

REMARKABLE STUNTS.
The wonderful Japanese athlete. Min-
oru Fujii, of Tokio university, Japan,
will compete either in the Olympic
world's championships in England or in
the American championships to be held
at Jamestown, Va., in September. This
swarthy athlete is credited with pole
vaulting the remarkable height of 12
feet 9 inches over a bar. In addition to
this the officials of the Tokio university
swear under oath that he ran 100 yards
in 9 2-5 seconds. Neither of the records
claimed for the Japanese athlete has been
approached in this country. Coaches ot
the American colleges held up their
hands in horror when the subject is
broached to them, and several confess
'that they would go miles to see this man
do these stunts so magnificently.
WELCOME INNOVATION.
There is coming over the water this
way from Paris a new fashion that will
be greeted with loud cries of joy by some
twenty millions of husband . Gowns,
shirt waists, lace waists, silk waists, and
tight-fitting jackets are going to button
up in front. The princess gown witR-its
two yards of studding bone is now
going out. We afe to return to the sane
method of hooking up, which is certainly
fine for all the great army of benedicts
who have been playing the role of lady's
maid. This was announced at the spring
exhibition of the Dressmakers' Association the other day in New York. "Yes"'
the speaker declared, "the heartily reviled, cussed and cussedly back buttoner
and spine hooker is no longer smart."
Able statisticians tell us that only oue
woman out of 5,000 is blessed with a
lady's mail. Therefore there is only one
husband in every 4,990 who may recline
at ease while the wife of his bosom is
being hooked up.
Dr. Alfred Stockton, M. P., St. John,
N. B., died at Ottawa last week. For a
quarter of a century Dr. Stockon had
been Identified with the political life of
his native province and ranked high as a
man and a politician.
