Market for Princeton Coal will expand with railway
The progressive citizen's motto : I Boost, don't knock."
The total of money orders and postal notes paid at Princeton P.O. last year was $4877, or nearly $400 more than the next highest office in the
Similkameen, which indicates the growing importance of this section as compared with other places—Natural resources are unequalled.

The Oro Denoro mine in the Boundary
has been bonded to the B.C. Copper Co.
The figure has not been made public.
The average price for electrolytic copper itrTVlarch was 18.361 cents.
Chas. Mitchener, mining man, went

in a few days.
W. C. McDougall is sinking a shaft in
ore on the United Empire.
Uhler and Cox are hard at work on the

J. Noble, mining expert, has been at
Copper mountain for the past ten days
making thorough surface examinations
of the whole mountain.
Geo. Aldous returned from Seattle last

E. F. Voigt has paid off nearly all of
his laboring staff in his mineral camp
a number of whom have been in town
for a few days on their way to other mining camps. ~
Editor Star—Sir: I noticed in an
eastern paper that the business men of
the Boundary district were about to un
dertake energetic means to advertise that
section. It occurs to me that it could
not be other than advantageous if the
commercial interests of the Similkameen
would unite upon a course of this kind
with reference to their own district. An
inexpensive means of accomplishing this
isjiow being overlooked. Every envelope that leaves the Similkameen shouid
advertise your wealthy district. The
word "Similkameen" printed diagonally
across the back of every envelope, with
a few words concerning its situation and
resources, would serve this purpose.
Business houses should readily unite on
a scheme of this kind. Their own business card might appear on the front of
the envelope. The general public would
also use these envelopes if they could be
obtained. Yours truly,
Ggo. R. Phiw.
Toronto, April 6, 1906.
The fire brigade received an instalment
of the fire-fighting appliances ordered
some time ago. Wheels for the hook and
ladder cart are expected to arrive any
day. The proposed water works, when
completed, will give Princeton adequate
fire protection and enhance the value of
the town for residential purposes.

City a Tottering and Fallen Mass of Ruins
Without Light, or Water to Stay
Devouring Flames*
Present Estimated Number of Killed, 2,500; Injured Cannot

Exceed $100,000,000; Details not

The first news of the great earthquake disaster at San Francisco
was received in a press despatch to the Star at 2_p.m. on Wednesday.
On that day, while yet the big city was muffled in the stillness of early
morn and a multitude of its citizens were wrapped in sleep, thousands
of whom in a twinkling passed into that deeper sleep that knows no
awaking, the great calamity stole upon them and a city was virtually
razed to the ground.
No warning of the catastrophe was given beyond a few slight premonitory tremors followed by a terrific quake which felled thousands
of buildings and entombed their occupants. The city hall and all the
other civic and government buildings are a vast pile of ruins. Other
magnificent structures, such as the Call, Examiner, Masonic Temple and
Postal Exchange are a tangled mass of steel, brick and mortar. The
old Palace hotel, familiar to travellers from the Similkameen, alone
remains of the flower of 'Frisco's magnificent hotels.
As if dissatisfied with the destruction caused by the earthquake the
destroying angel swept the waterfront from Battery to Front street with
a huge tidal wave, demolishing docks, shipping, warehouses and everything in its path. All the electric power and light plants are in ruins
and the city is in darkness but for the lurid glare of unfought flames.
The wreck of rail and telegraphic facilities in and about the city
makes communication difficult, thus delaying details of the disaster, but
enough is known to make it certain that it is one of the most appalling
misfortunes of modern times. It will easily outrank that convulsion of
nature by which Vesuvius devastated many small villages so recently
and may be compared with the frightful losses of life at Lisbon and
Calabria a century ago when 40,000 and 60,000 people were swallowed
up in a yawning earth and otherwise killed.
While it is impossible to procure accurate details the despatch states
that 2,500 is a conservative estimate of the killed and that no approximate idea of the number of injured can be given, there is reason to
believe that in the final reckoning all present estimates will be largely
Martial law prevails in the desolate city and any person found looting is immediately shot. San Francisco has a population of about 400-
000 of which 50,000 are Chinese, besides many other foreigners.
Thos. Sloan, an old-timer of Princeton,
arrived on Wednesday after about three
year's absence. His faith in this district
has never waned an iota and he comes
back from Ontario filled with bright ex
pectations which he will endeavor to
realize out of the great natural wealth in
this section.
G. Ranch, brewer, has arrived from
Milwaukee to work in Princeton brewery.
The baseball 'tools' arrived last Saturday and regular practices by the club are
in order.
Provincial Constable Hewat has been
appointed sanitary inspector for Princeton district and will immediately enter
upon his duties.
The Appeal to Reason newspaper is
.prohibited in Canadian mails.
J. R. Campbell, druggist, has been
brightening the front of his store with
paint and with the new awning has now
very cosy premises. Inside fittings and
admirable display of stock makes the
City Drug Store- a most inviting place to
do business in.
A. Irwin, Indian agent, arrived in town
Thursday on his way to Hedley. He is
accompanied by Mrs. Irwin and will visit
their-sons resident in the Similkameen.
Mr. Irwin was caught in the gold stampede to this country and was at Granite
creek in the old placer days. As Indian
agent he has proved to be a faithful and
efficient officer and retains the confidence
of his wards' as well as that of the Department of Indian Affairs.
Travellers and freighters over the Nicola road give unstinted credit to the
road overseer of the Otter Valley section
for having kept his portion in such good
condition in spite of the rugged nature
of the country traversed. It must be a
source of gratification to the commissioner of works to have an employee
who not only merits commendation but
reflects credit on the department he so
faithfully serves.
C. E. Thomas and Cook & Co. have recently freshened up their store fronts
with paint and a cottage on Fenchurch
Av. is being transformed with some rainbow coloring.
Hugh Cowan has raised his barber shop
Up and placed solid new underpinning
beneath, which adds to the attractiveness
of this popular resort for those requiring
attention to their hirsute growth and
to bodily cleanliness. The building was
elevated by Tink French in such way as
to interrupt business as little as possible.
Mr. Cowan is putting up an addition to
the shop which will enable him to put
additional chairs in the tonsorial department and thus provide for the increase
of customers during railway construction.
The commercial value of tungsten,
owing to its insufficient supply and increasing demand, makes it worthy of all
prospectors'' attention, especially as it is
believed to exist in the Similkameen
where conditions are favorable for it.
It is found in four different characters of
ore, the most common being wolframite,
a darkish crystallized mineral, which is
often present in a granite intrusion. It
i? also in hubernite, which is found in a
dark serpentine formation and resembles
the first ore. It is present in scheelite,
which is nearly as heavy as lead ores;
the fourth is a massive black mineral and
is found in a dioritic horn blende. Tungsten has become of renewed interest in
recent years owing to its use in the man-
factUre of so-called self-hardening rapid
tool steels. It is now worth about $450
per ton..

a timely  warning* to.'horse; owners

the noblest of man's brute friends—
the   horse.    In   all, civilized countries statutes are framed for the destruction of glandered   horses.    In
this respect Canada is  fortunate in
having  a  Department - of Agriculture  which    is  being   imitated   in
other countries   in  the propagation
of the industry generally and which
has  adopted  the   latest ■•scientific
methods  of detection   and prevention   of glanders.   'The  compensation allowed owners'of slaughtered

Glanders is readily transmitted
to man and to all of the equine
species but dogs-and cattle are-not
subject to it. Pus, from a glanders
ed horse is very contagious coming
in contact with the broken skin of
a man or by any means in which
the germs gain access to the blood.
So far as known no case of glanders
has been reported in the Similkameen but its presence in .adjoining
districts makes precautionary mea^

lingering and loathsome disease
gaining a foothold.

chains, thence north 20 chains, thence east 25,
chains to point of commencement.
Otter Valley, Jan  8, 1906.
April 21, 1906
In districts where the existeuce of
Glanders is suspected and especially in
neighborhoods where actual. outbreaks
have occurred the adoption of the fol
lowing precautions by owners of horses
and others interested will do much to
prevent Uie,spread of the disease and the
establishment of fresh centres of infection.
i. Horses or mules having a nasal discharge or other suspicions symptoms
should not be admitted to livery or feed
stables or yards, blacksmith shops,
church or school sheds, railway stock
yards, private stables or other places
where they are likely to come into direct
or indirect contact with animals of the
equine species.
2. All stabl»s, yards or sheds used for
the accommodation of horses or mules
should be regularly and frequently
cleansed and disinfected in the manner
prescribed below.
3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly, and burning all debris, the interior should be well gone over with hot
steam, or boiling water, adding to the
latter at least one quart of crude carbolic
acid to eacli'five gallons after which the
entire surface should be thickly coated
with a hot solution of fresh lime wash,
to which crude carbolic acid has been
added in the above mentioned proportion.
Outbuildings,  fences,  and tying posts ,
with which infected animals have been in
contact,  should  also,   when possible, be
thoroughly treated in a similar manner.
All ordinary harness and stable utensils
which have been in contact with infected
animals or infected premises, should be
thoroughly soaked in a hot solution of
crude carbclic acid of a strength of one
part to twenty.
Materials which might be injured by
the above treatment, such as valuable
harness, robes cushions, etc., which have
been in contact with infection, should be
placed in an air tight room and fumigated with Formaldehyde after which
they should be. thoroughly cleaned.
4. In stables where outbreaks have occurred or where diseased animals have,
inadvertantly or otherwise, been stabled,
even temporarily, the cleansing and disinfection should be especially thorough
and in such cases it is safest to remove
and burn feed boxes and mangers when
of wood : i.rou articles can be tendered
harmless  by   passing  them through fire
- or by immersing them for some time in
boiling water. All litter from suspected
animals shou'd be burned or carefully
fenced until used.
5. Farmers and others should, whenever possible, avoid admitting strange
horses aud mules to the premises occupied by their own animals especially of
the same species. It is a good plan Jo
reserve an isolated building for outside
horses or mules, but where this is impossible they may be accommodated in
cow stables, cattle not being subject to
g'anders infection Such horses and
mules should be watered from special
pails, which, together with all other stable
utensils used on or about them, should
be carefully cleansed and disinfected before being used for other animals. Stalls
occupied by strange horses or mules'
should be well cleansed and disinfected
and, if at all possible, left unoccupied for
some time.
6. Where new horses or mules are pur-
i h if ed in or from  districts where gland
ers exists, they should, unless carefully
tested with Mallein prior to purchase, be
stabled apart and closely watched for
some time before being brought in con
tact with other animals of the equine
7. It must be borne in mind that while
nasal discharge, or ulceration, enlarged
glands, the presence of farcy buds, unaccountable swelling of the limbs and
general unthriftiness, often characterize
cases of Glanders, the disease exists in
many animals without, for the lime being
any external manifestation whatever, the
only means of detection in such cases
beiug the Mallein test, and that these
occult or latent cases are in some lespec s
the most dangerous because unsuspected.
Our experience shows that it is possible
for animals of this class to convey infection to others without themselves devel
oping acute symptoms. It is therefore
plain that great caution should be exer
cited in the purchase or handling of
strange horses or mules especially in
those districts where the disease has become established.
8. The carcases of animals dying from
or slaughtered as being affected with
Glanders should, when possille, be
burned or, failing this, buried at least six
feet beneath the surface.
9. Owners of premises where outbreal s
have been dealt with should bear in mil d
that Inspectors cannot recommend release from quarantine unless disinfection
has been carried out in a satisfactory
manner and that compensation for animals slaughtered cannot be paid until a
certificate of cleansing and disinfection
has been received by the Minister of Ag
10. Horse owners should have no hesitation in reporting to this Department or
to its inspectors the existence of actual
or suspected cases of Glanders. The disease has been spreading rapidly of late
years and it is a matter of public interest
that every fresh centre of infection should
be discovered and dealt with-as promptly
as possible J. G. RUTHERFORD,
