Princeton coal is used solely for local blacksmithfngp.
The millenium will put meddlesome persons out of a job.
That Princeton has been discovered is no longer^lt'rhatter of conjecture; the press of a continent has referred to it in editorial and despatch
which have been read by a multitude—The rising tide 6i|prosperity which Is setting this way will lead to wealth and Independence.

PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
LOCAL AND GENERAIg|
Zero weather in March is an unusual
state of the elements, yet that is what
occurred this week after a most delight
ful winter. Cloudless skies prevail and
spring must soon burst forth in all its
beauty.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Waterman returned
on Wednesday from their California .trip
which they enjoyed very much. The
holiday was the first they "had outside of
Princeton in some years, the change
being much appreciated ; but they longed
to be back to the sunny Similkameen-
with its - bright climate and brighter
prospects.
Wm. Gosnell, ..manager of the Princeton brewery, who is now at Nelson, has
shipped the machinery and-apparatus to
occupy the fine, large building now being
finished on Vermilion avenue. Mr. Gosnell expects to arrive here next Saturday.
Jimmy Chenhall, the old reliable 'whip'
on Stewart's royal mail line to Nicola,
Avas a passenger on last Saturday's coach
and spent this week Visiting and recuperating his health. He was recently at
Mountain View, Cal., where he Was entertained by T. A. Rogers, the well known
mining man, who will be here in May to
resumej; mining operations. Jimmy's
numerous friends will be glad to see him
fully restored to health and gliding along
the old stage route with his hands fullof
'ribbons' and his foot upon the brake
miking.good time.
ALL ALONG Tflj LINE
Railway Construction is Progressing well Both Day
and Night.
Engineers Locate Wharf Site at Penticton—Laborers Scarce and
Work Plenty.
LOOKS LIKE ELECTIONS.
The following commissioners for tak
ing affidavits in the Supreme Court for
the purpose of acting under the "Provincial Elections Act" have been appointed : Geo. E. Winkler and R. B.
White of Penticton ; C. Hairsine of Hedley ; A. D. Hardie and W. C. Bate of
Fairview; HvA. Turner and'Geo. GjoTcU>
borough of Princeton. Mr. Winkler is
a prominent Socialist and a possible candidate for the legislature in the next
elections. His appointment is due to
'Premier' Hawthornthwaite's well known
mesmeric influence over 'Deputy'-Premier
McBride.
POSSIBLE MINOR DELAYS.
Several bridges between Myers cregk
and Molson will 'delay tracklaying on
the V..V. & E. as Ae superstructure
of these bridges is rarely laid down and
put" on until brought up on the track.
Each of these bridges will in all proba
bility hold up th° track laying fot a
week, but most Jikely the ballasting will
be kept well up so as to permit of traffic
as soon as possible after the trains arrive,
and after the track is ballasted to Molson.
That will likely be the terminus for a few
weeks ; tor the bridging of the Okanagan
and Similkameen at Oroville will take
too long to . warrant them in holding
Midway as the terminus until trains can
run into Oroville.
' C.P.R. engineers have recently^lSeen at
Penticton looking for the best site for a
wharf. It looks as if the C.P.R. meant
business at the lake terminus and would
soon begin actual work of railway
construction.
Work on the V. V. & E. is progressing
as rapidly as circumstances will permit.
Every effort is being put forth and day
and night shifts are working on several
portions of the road between Midway and
Molson. The new depot at Midway is
now in use.       &«■*"-
At the Myers creek tunnel, about six
miles west of Midway, about 300 feet
have beeu;6pened. Shifts are now excavating at both ends and making rapid
progress. When complete the tunnel
will be some 800 feet in length.
The completion of this work- has been
one of the first object-, of the engineers,
for until this was finished lit^tecould be
done in the way of track laying, and now
that the end is within reasonable sight it
i-;txpected that the work 0/ laying the
steel will start about May 1st.
Another engineering feat of great importance was the erection of the long
semi-circle trestle which takes the road
across the valley at Myers creek, approaching within twenty feet 'of the
American boundary before the curve
turns to the basin of Rock creek.
Between Keremeos and Princeton the
work will be pushed forward as rapidly
as possible. Large gangs of men will be
put on and every effort made to rush the
work to completion.
Engineer Amburn is revising the V.,
V. & E. line above Princeton on the
Tulameen river. This portion of the
road will be of great scenic beauty and
presents some engineering difficulties in
construction. ;-%)^ll
It is reported that a survey will be
made up the Tulameen river to its source
which affords an alternative route to the
coast over Hope mountains. The pass is
said to be easy through the mountains
by this location.
The money orders and postal notes
paid at. the Princeton post office indicate
the growing importance of this section
when compared with other places. The
total paid was $4877, or nearly $400 more,
than the next highest office in the
Similkameen last year.. *•  j
SMELTS WITH COAL
Blanchard - Williams    Double
Blast Furnac^/Proves a
p&enuine Success.
Trial Enn at Pilot Bay was Very Satisfactory—Princeton Coal May
Be Suitable.
From time to time reports of experi
ments with the Blanchard-Williams double blast coal consuming furnace have
appeared fn the press of the west, but not
until recently have tangible and complete results been obtained from actual)
stnelti,ng with coal in -this Qjrnace. At
Pilot Bay a very successful run was'made
at the Ferneau smelter with.the Blanchard-Williams furnace. The trial run was
so satisfactory that a new 126 tonfturnace
has been ordered-to be erected iaimedi
ately, the water jacket for which has already been ordered in the east. By the
Blanchard-Williams process coal is sub
stituted for coke in about one half of the
quantity in ordinary copper and lead ores
and where the ore is a sulphide by using
the sulphur in combustion, the percentage is still further reduced* As the cost
of coal is less than half the price of coke
it is certain that a very^large reduction
in the cost of smelting will be effected-
in cheaper fuel, while additional savings
will be made in doing away with crushing and roasting of the ores. Whether
Princeton coal is in every way suitable
for this new process of smelting remains
to be demonstrated. G. E. Baker, who
is president of the company owning the
Blanchard & Williams furnace, "when
here last fall was of the opinion that the
coal here would serve the purpose, but
could not decide definitely until an actual
smelting test was made with it As soon
as a full report of the Pilot Bay and Butte
smelter runs can be obtained it will appear in these columns.
It is understood that the Granby Co. is
favorably dispo^d toward the new process and may install^a-furnace to test the
ores of that company Already the Butte
Reduction Works of Butte, Mont., is'
taking down one of the old furnaces to
make room for a Blanchard-Williams.
Following is a copy of a fetter written by
C. Ferneau, general manager of the Ca
nadian Metal Co., at Nelson, B.C., who
has used and is still using one of the
Blanchard Williams furnaces:
g Improved Smelter & Mining Co.
Portland, Ore.
"Gentlemen—In reply to your letter
"of the 14th inst. I am pleased to state
that the trial run of your furnace was
highly satisfactory. It proved that coal
can be used instead of coke, and that the
gas resulting from the coal was completely
burned in the secondary stack.   Through
out the test the slag ran very hot. I consider your furnace as especially a'dapted
for copper matte making.
Yours truly,
_C. Ferneau,
General Manager."
On request of the Butte Reduction
Works Co. of Butte, Montana, the following statement concerning the Blanchard & Williams double blast furnace is
made by the Improved Mining and Smelting Co., sole owners of the above named
furnace :
" The/furnacejconsists of two stacks
set en/1. to end or side by side known as-
the Primary and secondary stacks. They
'are/so arrariged' that the bottom of the
tWo stacks are connected allowing what
-iff known or termed an archway between
them. Each stack is provided with two
rows of air tuyers on each side, and are.so
arranged that a complete combustion of
the smoke aud gases is had at the bottom
of the two stacks.
The primary stack is provided with a
double bell top feed so as to make it air
tight. The secondary stack is open and
connected to the down take or flue chambers the same as any- ordinary blast
furnace. The primary stack is charged
with mixed coal and ore charge and the
secondary stack with the ore charge
only. -
A down blast is produced in the primary stack and at the upper row of tuyers
the coal is practically made into coke;
also the fusing of the ore is started. 'At
the second row of tuyers in the primary
stack complete lushion of the piimary
charge is had. The gases which are
driven off in making coke and the smoke
from the coal in the primary stack, pass
on into the secondary stack, and between
the lower tuyers in the primary stack and
the bottom row of tuyers in the secondary
stack complete combustion of the smoke
and carbon monoxide is had. Ores that
contain a quantity of sulphur can be
smelted in this style of furnace with little
or no fuel by. properly supplying the air
and by use of the second row of tuyers
in the secondary stack sufficient air is
applied to convert the sulphur into tah
phuric acid.
Such tremandous heat is generated by
.the combustion of the smoke and gases
that two and three charges of ore are
smelted in the secondary stack, to one in
the secondary stack, to one'in the* primary stack; and the primary stack is
smelting as much or more than any
stack now in use.
We do not ask for any special kind of
ores as the worst combination known
has been successfully* smelted in this
style of furnace. Ore containing 70 per
cent, silica and only 3 per cent, sulphur
was readily smelted in both stacks, and
with this ore the secondary stack ran
two charges to one in the primary stack
and the slag ran very hot and apparently
as thin as water, also rendering a com-

CERtffi|SXTE OF THE REGISTRA
TION OF AN EXTRA-PROVINCIAL COMPANY.
" Companies Act, 1897."
WAGON EOADS WANTED.
The provincial estimates for the
current year give the revenue for
that period at $2,647,976 and the
expenditure $2,837,916, thus creating a deficit of about $190,000.
The principal items of expenditure
-are public works, $677,810 ; education, $409,075. The Similkameen
riding has had more favorable consideration this year than last, thanks
to the agitation for better terms and
larger appropriations forv roads
which have been persistently advocated since last year's estimates
were made. During 1905 many
.petitions from settlers and resolutions from the board of trade have
been sent to the government urgiag
the necessities of Princeton district
which, it is hoped, with the increased appropriation, will now be
expended to the satisfaction of all
concerned and in relief of those
necessities.
In this part of Mr. Shatford's
constituency there has been scant
justice done to the taxpayers and
other contributors to the revenue
in the past. The amount of money
received by the government from
coal licenses and leases in the vicinity of Princeton, at the moderate
estimate of fifty of these, would
yield $5,000 annually. From metalliferous mining about $3,000 is the
annual contribution and the other-
natural sources of revenue : timber,
land and water will, it is believed,
amount to $5,000. Trade and
hotel licenses, personal property and
poll taxes and incidental sources of
revenue would, it is calculated, produce $3,000 more. Here then are
$16,000 total, at a moderate estimate, contributed by the Princeton
section exclusively, in return lor
which a mere pittance is spent on
road maintenance and building of
new ones.
Out of the appropriation of $20,-
000 made for the Similkameen district this year the road up One-
Mile and that to Five-Mile settlers
should receive a sum sufficient to
afford taxpayers in those sections
A means of communication with
their marketing places. Without a
wagon road those settlers are badly
handicapped in disposing of their
produce and cannot develop their
/arms as they   would  like.     The
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
When the Dominion government
levied a head tax of $500 on the
Chinese coming into Canada, which
practically meant exclusion, it settled the vexed question politically
and socially. Since then there has
been no agitation against the Chinese who remained in the country
after the 'Exclusion Act' bad been
passed. Public opinion was satisfied at the end of a long agitation
and the abatement of an intolerable
nuisance. There are no more Chinese riots in either Canada or the
United States since immigration has
been stopped and all cities and
towns are now wide open and unrestricted to the Mongolian in so
far as he complies with the civic
statutes and is otherwise law-abiding. The reason for this is not far
to seek. The public mind is at rest
so far as the yellow peril threatened
and no uneasiness is caused by their
presence in any locality as their
number is fast diminish/rig. The
employment of Chinese by all classes
of white people is now practised so
generally that it attracts little attention and workingmen do not
complain as bitterly as they did
formerly. The Chinese are a passing race in British Columbia and in
a few years will have disappeared
from the scene here leaving behind
no regrets for their departure.
. What seems to be a fair way of
deciding whether the Midway &
Vernon railway is entitled to a subsidy is left to the decision of Chief
Justice Hunter by the government.
At the same time it looks strange
that Premier McBride either could
not or would not give the decision
himself and save the country the
expense. An order-in-council was
signed recently which gave the
chief justice authority to make the
decision, the government agreeing
to pay the subsidy if such decision
be favorable to the company.
The Kaien land grant deal has
been investigated by a government
appointed committee which has, as
was to be expected, exonerated the
Hon. Robert Green from any blame
whatsoever in connection with this
ever memorable transaction. The
minority and majority reports will
be published and the public will
then be able to render a verdict.
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 whicb 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 ttansfer stock).
The Company is limited.

Synopsis of Regulations Governing
the Disposal of Dominion Lands
within, the Railway Belt in the
Province of British Columbia.
A LICENSE to cut timber can be acquired only at pubHc competition. A
rental of $5 per square mile is charged
for all timber berths excepting those situated west of Yale for which the rental is
at the rate of 5 cents per acre per annum.
In addition to the rental, dues at the
following rates are charged: Sawn lumber, 50 cents per thousand feet B.M. Railway ties, eight and nine feet long, 1%
and x% cents each. Shingle bolts, 25
cents a cord. All other products, 5 per
cent, on the sales.
A license is issued so soon as a berth is
granted, but in unsurveyed territory no
timber can be cut on a berth until the
licensee has.made a survey thereof.   'i$$&
Permits to cut timber are also granted
at public competition, except in the case
of actual settlers who require the timber
for their own use.
Settlers and others may also obtain permits to cut up to 100 cords of wood for
sale without competition.
The dues payable under a permit are
#150 per thousand feet B.M., for square
timber and saw logs of any wood except
oak; from % to i)4 cents per lineal foot
for building logs; from 12% to 25 cents
per cord for wood; 1 cent for fence posts;
3 cents for railway ties; and 50 cents per
cord on shingle bolts.
Leases for grazing purposes are issued
for a term of 21 years at a rental of two
cents an acre per annum.
Coal lands may be purchased at $10 per
acre fo- soft coal and $20 for anthracite.
Not more than 320 acres may be acquired
by one individual or company.
Royalty at the rate of 10 cents per ton
of 2000 pounds is collected on the gross
output
Entries for land for agricultural pur
poses may be made personally atthe local
land office for the district in which the
land to be taken is situated, or if the
homesteader desires, he may, on application to the minister of the interior at
Ottawa, the commissioner of immigration at Winnipeg, or the local agent for
the district within which the land is situated, receive authority for some one to
make entry tor him.
A fee of $10 is charged for a homestead
entry.
A settler who has received an entry for
a homestead is required to perform the
conditions connected therewith -under
one of the following plans :
1. At least six months' residence upon
and cultivation of the land in each year
during the term of three years. It is the
practice of the department to require a
settler to bring 15 acres under cultivation
but if he prefers he may substitute stock,
and 20 head of cattle, to be actually his
own property, with buildings for their
occupation, will be accepted instead of
the cultivation.
2. If the father (or mother, if the father is deceased), of any person who is
eligible to make a homestead entry under
the provisions of the act, resides upon a
farm in the vicinity of the land entered
for by such person as a homestead, the
requirements of the act as to residence
prior to obtaining patent may be satisfied
by such person residing with the father
or mother.
3: If the settler has his permanent
residence upon farming land owned by
him in the vicinity of his homestead, the
requirements as to .residence may be satisfied by residence upon the said land.
Application for a patent should be made
at the end of three years before the local
agent, sub-agent or a homestead inspector.
Six months' notice in writing should
be given to the Commissioner of Dominion Lands at Ottawa of intention to apply
for patent. W. W. CORY.

How a Man May Lighten the Bur-
I dens of Life with Natural Food.
Editor Star—Sir : Our winter's sleep
was rudely broken in upon last week by
the arrival of a gasoline chug-chug bearing two men. One was only an ordinary
sort of fellow—he was the engineer, or
something in a foreign language* which
means the same thing—but the other one
merits some description. To say he was
stout would hardly fill the bill. He was
fat and two cunning little eyes looked out
at you from a wrinkle of the same ma
terial. His nose, what there was of it,
was short and turned up at the point exposing two large nostrils,. a long upper
Hp, large mouth and a sawed off chin
which gave him the appearance of belonging to the Hog family. His grass
tanglers were large and seemed to be
afflicted with bunions or kidney complaint, and yet he shuffled around with
a good deal of restless energy while he
^expressed his opinion of our benighted
condition in not knowing enough to help
ourselves to the good things Nature had
placed within our reach.
vVe were at a loss to know what position he occupied in the economy of nature, or more properly speaking human
nature, until he faced the bar and calkd
for a .'solitary.' Then we knew he was
a real "estate man from the coast. He
brought a bucket full of water from the
Welldo chicken soup spring and when he
had seasoned it with pepper and salt he
passed it around—it was his treat. -And
I must say that the soup was all right,
so far as taste went. He says that inside
of a year he will have it "on every hotel
table from San Francisco to Cape Nome
and nobody will know that it is not the
genuine article Until the coroner has the
stomach of some deceased guest analyzed
who has been fattenetl^to the point of
starvation on this famous mineral water.

Fortunate is the store that has the
reputation for dependability.
Fortunate is the public that has
such a store in its midst. Mutual
confidence between a store and its
buying public means growth.
This store has grown, and is growing on just these lines.
