PRINCETON, B.C.,   WEDNESDAY, AUGUUST 7, 1907.        $2 a Year, in Advance
Holds Regular Monthly Meet
ing and Clears Up Considerable Business.
Secretary Wynne's  designation  Re
ceived with Regret—Mineral Exhibit at Spokane and Seattle.
The Board of Trade held its regular
monthly meeting on Thursday night and
disposed of considerable business, with
the following membere present: President B. S. Kennedy, E- Waterman, A. E. I
Jackson, J. M. Wright, W. S. Wilson, H.
Cowan, F. P." Cook, and Alex. Bell.
Secretary Wynne having resigned, E.
Waterman consented to fill the position
temporarily. All spoke in high piai.se of
the efficient way in which Mr. Wynne
had filled the position aud regret was expressed at his removal from town.
Mr. Wiight drew the Board's attention
to the dangerous bush fire raging .^^
Granite pointing to the great, amount
of damage that would result therefrom in
the loss of valuable timber. The attention of the fire warden for this district
will be drawn to the tnattei and an effort
made to prevent the careless kindling of
forest fires.
The question of sending a mineral exhibit this fall to the Spokane Inter-State
Fair and also to the Alaska Yukon Exposition, was discussed at length and an
effort will be made along this line, it
being looked upon as one of the best advertisements the Similkameen could
have.
The Board also looked upon with appreciation the different road work now
being carried on in this section by the
Government, the carrying out of election
promises made by our member, Mr. Shatford.
She meeting then adjourned.

CORRECTS FALSE  IMPRESSIONS.
Liberal   Association    Gives    Public
Statement re Post Office.
Editor Star—Sir:    The Princeton Liberal   Association   has   been   accused   of
many things which it is not guilty of by
those who are crowing at  what   appears,
tos^kem, its  downfall   and   defeat.    As
thenk^e many versions of the  causes of
tlj^aecent proposed changes iu the post
office, all of which are more   or  less   bi-
a sed   and   prejudiced   by the   political
creed ofthe authors  of them, or  by the
sympathies and social circle of friends of
the principals or  by the principals themselves, we the   undersigned, believe  that
the interests of the public will   be   promoted and   all   parties   benefitted   by a
thorough understanding and true exposition ofthe matter and the relation which
the Liberal Association had with it.
The purpose of the  Liberal   organiza-
ti n.       according      io       its      constitu
t;pn, is to discuss and take  action   upon
all questions  affecting  the  general welfare of   the   people   residing within   its
    jurisdiction and all matters pertaining to
near and affecting the Liberal party iu the district of Princeton. A quorum at any
meeting of the'Association shall consist
of not less than three members. It will
thus be seen that the Association was
within its rights and scope in dealing
with the post office question, affecting as
it does the welfare cf the people and the
Liberal party. Matter for publication is
left to the discretion of each Association.
Naturally, and of course, the channel
through ■ which the Association should
reach the Government would be through
the member of the House of Commons,
hon. president of the Princeton Associa
tion.
The present nnstrrjas^pr.   being  one  of
two suggested, got his   appointmenfc**Qn
the, advice ofa friend of Mr. Ross^&frr.
there being no  Liberal"" 'organization   in
Princeton at that, time.    Since   his   appointment continuous  complaints   have
been made by persons, irrespective of political party, some of which are   as   follows;    Frequent errors in delivering mail
—persons getting mail that  did   not   be
long to them;   slow distribution  of mail
after artival   causing   inconvenience   to
those going long distances and  unnecessary delay to others;   delivering mail   to
(excepting ladies) those out  of  turn   at
the wicket, by passing it over  the  heads
||f those in rotation;   waiting on  customers  of  store, showing  preference,  while
persons at   the wicket   remain   waiting;
dumping mail on floor of store on  three
occasions in a discourteous manner giving offence to parties receiving  it;   slow
iu  making out   money  orders, thereby
causing people to transfer their patronage
to the bank;   not keeping the office open
regulation time and  frequently absent at
various hours, especially before moving

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
The  Reco  Bond  Taken  Up
and Work Started=Granite
Creek Placer Mining
Being Prosecuted by Mr. Lambert on
Extensive Scale—Promising Property on One-Mile.
The Reco, located in Combination
Camp, Copper mountain, bonded recently
to Spokane capitalists, will shortly be
the scene of active mining operations.
Although the exact figure of the bond
could not be .earned it is understood to
be in the neighborhood of $40,000 and
includes the north arid south extensions.
J. E. McCauley, who represents the new
owners, has started a small force of men
to work and expects to increase his.force
as soon as necessary arrangements now
uiiciei way are completed.
Jack O'Neill and Geo. Aldous,   owners
of a most promising group  of claims  on
Blue Ribbon mountain, situated  ou   the
divide between   One-Mile and  Summers j
Creek, have just completed a 36 ft.  shaft
which shows a good body of ore carrying
cooper and gold.     They  intend  sinking
some 50 feet  and  then   drifting, in   this
way opening up the property and  showing to advantage the worth of the mine.
Chas. Lambert, who owns a mile and a
half lease on Granite   Creek,   is   making
good progress with his dam which he  is
building on the creek at  the north  fork.
Lumber for fluming 11,000 feet is  all  on
the ground, having been hauled  on   tra-
voys a distance of five miles over a mountainous trail by Dan  McKay.    The  tiail
was only  a   narrow one  with   very steep
grades but Mr. Lambert  improved   it  so
that a horse could draw eleven  boards at
a load.    It is up  to  the  Government  to
reward Mr. Lambert*for his  expenditure
in making the trail passable for loads and
which will be of great service  to  miners
and prospectors   in   that   district.     Mr.
Lambert expects to have  everything . in
shape for washing gold at low water next
summer.    Beinga practical  miner and a
professional teacher of   it   in   Klondike
days he is well equipped with experience
besides having made considerable wealth
gold mining in Atlin which he  is investing on Granite Creek.

NEWSPAPER  WINS.
In the libel suit of R E Gjeen, ex-
Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works,
against the World, verdict was given for
the defendant with costs. Judge Clement
referred in scathing terms to Sir Adolph
Caron's actions in connection with his
bribe to Green, saying "such a man
should have the insignia of royal favor
stripped from him. ' He also scored
Green.

Archie McLean, of Central Park, near
Vancouver, is spending a portion of the
school holidays in the Similkameen, the
guest of Mr. and Mrs. G. Murdoch.
Mrs. H. L. Godsoe and family left yesterday on a visit to relatives at Trout
Lake, B. C.
Mr. and Mrs. L C. Wynne removed to
Hedley yesterday where they will reside
in future.
A child of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Manning
was accident!}' killed on Wednesday last
by the overturning of a wagon in which
father and mother also were occupants,
all being pitched out with the above fatal
result; the accident taking place on the
Nicola road between Granite Creek and.
Otter Flat.
J. C. Clark, the well known jeweler of
Hedley, paid Princeton a business visit
on Monday.
The rn)'Stery surrounding the disappearance of Mrs. Nicholson from Hedley
over a week ago, has been cleared up by
the finding of her body in the Similkameen river at what is known as Brushy
Bottom, a few miles below Hedley, on
Sunday last. It is supposed the unfortunate woman, becoming weary of life,,
sought  relief by committing suicide.
Posters are out announcing a grand
celebration at Hedley on Labor Day, September 2nd, and will last two days. ■ A
most attractive programme of sports has
been arranged for which the handsome
sum of $1500 has been subscribed.
The postponed pool tournament will
open in the Princeton parlors to-night.
The handsome meerschaum offered for
competition should induce all lovers of
the game to take a chance.
The drop in the temperature the last
few days is a welcome relief from the late
extremely warm weather.
Mr. Mildmay, of Penticton, was in
town on Monday on his way to Hope.
He is out in the interests of several publications, including the Vancouver Province, writing up this section of the
country.
Mrs. P. Swanson left last Thursday on
a visit to her grandparents at Nanaimo.
The bridge over the Similkameen at
Allison is to be taken over by the Government and necessary repairs made. The
road from that point to Copper mountain
will also receive attention.
The acquittal of Wm. D. Haywood,
secretary-treasurer of the Western Federation of Miners, on the charge of murdering Governor Steuneuberg, meets with
general favor. A great many of the labor
organizations in British Columbia celebrated the occasion appropriately.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Under the above heading the To-
Tonto Globe, the foretnost paper in
Canada, publishes an able article on
the question of the Japanese  invasion   to   British   Columbia,  which
demonstrates that the eastern rrind
is at last grasping the seriousness of
this wholesale immigration   of Asiatics to this Province   „^^^^__,^
says:    "The strong protest  of Mr.
R. G. Macpherson, M.   P.,   against
delivering western Canada  to   the
Asiatics voices a sentiment   that is
quite prevalent in British Columbia.
He declares  that  Japanese  coolies
are as great an injury and as  great
a menace as   Chinese  coolies,   and
that both should be subjected to the
laws now imposing an exclusion tax.
on Chinese onl}\    That a large majority in an important   Province   is
strongly and even violently opposed
to Japanese immigration while  the
Japs are coming in great   numbers
is a matter which neither  the   Pro
vincial, Dominion nor Imperial authorities can   afford   to   disregard.
The sudden rise of the Japanese as
a nation and the way in which that
great   achievement has been accomplished give the matter   a   new   aspect, both locally and from an   Imperial standpoint.    That the   Chin
ese are a menace and an   injury we
have   abundant   proof        *    *    *
The Japs as a people seem more inclined   than   the Chinese to   adopt
western ideals and conform to western destraiuts.    But we   must   remember that so far we have attracted only the better elements.    When
the Japanese  padrone, encouraged
by the absence of Chine.-e competition, begins bringing in the lowest
classes of   laborers   from   the   city
slums we may have as troublesome
an invasion as that of the Chinese.
And   they will   be   protected   by a
powenul nation whose friendship is
essentia! to Britain's necessary position ;u/iong the nations.    So   far as
assimilation is concerned, they seem
likely to remain as distinct and separate as  the Cinnese.    They  seem
to have a I ipacity for lifeapart from
the domestic relationships that   are
essentials of existence among western r.:ces.    It is questionable if two
non-assimilating races can   live   in
the same country without one being
in subjection   to   the   other.    The
problems involved ai e rertainlv seri-

This is in part what the Tornto
World, Conservative, had to say
recently, in referring to Sir Wilfrid
Iyaurier's action at tbe Colonial
Conference:
"Sir Wilfrid   Laurier,   as a  Canadian
looming larger in the eyes of the world,
deserves the heartiest possible  reception
from his fellow-countrymen.    Abroad he
has acquitted himself well.    With  a sure
hand he directed his course at the Colonial  Conference, and  whether   we   agree
with him or not, we must all confess that
he held himself with   the  dignity, with
the grand air, and with the directness of
the experienced statesman.    In   manner,
in mind and in   peisonalty, he  appealed
to the imagination of the people of  the
The   Globe [ Old Land, and he returns to Canada  the.
biggest Canadian   they have  ever   setn.
Upon his party his hold is strong.    Cabinet  ministers,   members  of Parliament
and party managers fondly speak of him
as The Chief.    And their chief he is, towering head and shoulders above  them in
all   that  makes   for statesmanship.     In

Pain in the head—pain anywhere, has its causa
Pain is congestion, pain is blood presrure—nothing
■ else usually. At least, so says Dr. Shoop, andtd
prove it he has created a littie pink tablet. Thav
tablet—called Dr. Shoop's Kjadache Tablet-
coaxes blood pressure away from pain centers.,
Its effect is charming, pleasingly delightful. Gently>(
though safely, it surelyoq-jalizes the blood cire*
lation.
If you have a headache, it's blood pressure.
If it's painful periods with, women, same cause.
If you are sleepless, restless, nervous, it's blood
congestion—blood pressure. That surely is a
certainty, for Dr. Shoop's Headache Tablets stop:
it in 20 minutes, and the tablets simply distribute
the unnatural blood pressure.
Bruise your finger, and doesn't it get red, and
swell, aud pain you? Of course it does. It's con.
gest.on, blood pressure. You'll find it where pain
is—always.   It's simply Common Sense.
