Coal mining is sure to be permanent industry here.
The miserable person hunts for slights and invariably finds them
!
It is quite common to speak of Princeton as the prospective Pittsburg of British Columbia and the reason for thus referring: to it lies in the fact
that it has all the characteristic surroundings of its notable exemplar—Princeton Is bound to be a great metal manufacturing: centre and coal city.
Vol. vii.   No. 16.
PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, JULY H, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
ON WITH (THE STEEL
Tracklaying to Keremeos by
First October then on
to.Princeton.
Coal Supply for Railway will be Pro*
cored Here—Contractors Begin
at Nicola.
The V.,V. & E. is expected to be operating freight and passenger trains to
Oroville by ist October.. Steel will reach
that point about ist September and ballasting will require a month to complete.
About ten miles of track have been laid
west of Midway, leaving about 50 miles
to lay to Oroville.
■ 'idE&btn Oroville to Keremeos there will,
be nothing in the way to retard track-
laying, to'which latter point steel will be
laid by ist October and a month later
regular passenger and freight services
. are expected to be established.
The building of camps and clearing
right-of-way between Keremeos and
Princeton will begin shortly, but little 01
no grading will be done until the rails
are at Oroville. Keremeos is expected
to be a supply base until Princeton is
reached. Here, President Hill is anxious to get as soon as possible for the
coal-available for fuel and which the Vermilion Forks Co. are now preparing to
supply. Until Princeton is reached the
coal supply will be drawn from Fernie
a distance of about 300 miles.
"Sunset" Brown has stopped grading
on the Kettle Valley line which runs
over his property near Volcanic mountain. He wants {60 an acre for the land
in the right-of-way and the company will
not pay it.
Contractors are now at Nicola to begin
grading on the short stretch between that
place, and Coutlee. Surveyors are now
within six miles of Aspen Grove with the
located line.
EXCITEMENT IN HEDLEY.
Editor Star—Sir: The citizens of
Hedley were awakened from their usual
repose by the toot of the mill whistle,
discharge of firearms and explosions of
dynamite on the morning of July 4. It
was first supposed to be an attempt to
holdup the mill but later proved to have
been the commencement of the celebration by residents from across the line who
were satisfied with Canadian coin for
their labor but could not accept her holidays.
As the sun arose on the horizon the
courage of the celebrants fell and when
the procession fell in line for the picnic
grounds only two Yankees were seen,
surrounded by a group of Canucks. _
Query :  Would it not work to the wel
fare of the community for united action
in all pnblic matters. The future of
Hedley has been '■' injured by social and
sentimental matters and it is time to call
a halt, close up the ranks and all push
Hedley to the front, and return the kickers across the line. Yours truly,
Hedley, July 7,1906. H.
VISIT OF MINING EXPERT.
J. D. Springer, representing the well
known firm of Finch & Campbell, mine
investors, Spokane, has been in this section visiting several mining camps on
behalf of his principals. Mr. Springer
is not here on a pleasure trip nor yet for
his health—purely business. If there is
any offering on a business basis his firm
will be only too pleased to become interested. Finch & Campbell make a
specialty of developing'embryo mines
and prospects into producing and revet-
nue earning properties. Their experience covers a wide range in time and territory, being operators for many years
in the western states and British Columbia. Mr. Springer is a mining expert of
many years' standing and knows the
mining fields of the west by rote and
visitation. He has formed a good opinion of the Similkameen on this his first
visit.
BRUIN UP A TREE.
Some sport was had last Sunday with a
big black bear which Mrs. Daly and
daughters espied as they were riding
down the Nicola road on the outskirts of
town. As the ladies closed in on bruin
giving a few loud huzzas and making a
hissing sound with their lips he lost his
head (mentally) and foolishly ran up a
stunted pine. Some armed gentlemen,
one with a kodak, came on the scene and
proffered help in the despatch of his
bearship which, of coarse, was'accepted.
On request of one of the fair ones the
bear was snapped by the kodak man just
as the deadly trigger was pulled. The
animal fell a lifeless heap his dying regret, no doubt, being that he got himself
into snch a jackpot by listening to the
ladies when he could by turning a somersault over the hill easily be gone.
GOOD CLASS OP SETTLER,
Paul Laplante is building a storey and
a half log house, 20x30, on his ranch at
Five-Mile, and is clearing and fencing
so that when he returns next spring with
a large outfit and stock he will be prepared to embark extensively into ranching. Recently he bought the crop on
Charlie Burch's ranch, lot 1185, from C
A. Mears, who has had it rented. From
the same party he has also purchased two
cows, a bull calf and two yearling calves.
Mr. Laplante has been a successful rancher in Washington but the brighter prospects here have induced him to pull up
stakes and come to the sun-kissed Similkameen.
TOWN AND DISTRICT
News Rake Works all Right
but There is Little to
Bunch Up.
Settlers Ooming this Way from Maine
—Trout Plentiful in Rivers
and Hungry.
• Leo McMullen had a narrow escape
from the loss of sight in his right eye
recently. A fine particle of steel flew
from under a hammer blow striking the'
pupil causing .acute pain and infiamma
tion. Dr. Schon skilfully removed the
dangerous irritant and the restored optic
is on duty as before.
Jack Edmunds with a bunch of cowboy
assistants has been branding young stock
for Mrs. Daly this week and says he
never saw cattle in better form.
Summers & Wardle have put a first-
class refrigerator in their butcher shop
which ensures perfect preservation of
meat these scorching days and is also in
line with the spirit of the firm to be
up-to-date in every respect.
Fred Revely drove his new mail and
passenger coach on Wednesday from
Hedley. It is a covered rig and has an
air of comfort and stability so inviting to
travellers.
Mat Stewart drove a special in on Sunday last, bringing with him the recovered
mail sack accidentally dropped from the
regular coach on its last trip. While
here Mr. Stewart inducted J. R. Campbell of the City Drug Store as express
agent for .his stage line. The former
agent, C. E. Thomas, held the agency for
years and only relinquished it through
lack of time to attend to it.
D. O. Day and D. M. French took a
stroll up the Tulameen the other day and
each cast a fly on its bosom. Result:
One shy of three score speckled beauties.
Time: One hour, 35 minutes.   Thanks.
John Gillies left last week for Midway
where he expects to meet his family and
also that of Mr. Burrell. They have
come from far-away Maine, U.S., to join
their husbands here: A Mr. Cox and his
family are expected in the party, all of
whom will become residents of this section.
J. Dake of Nelson and for several years
a co-laborer on newspapers with the irrepressible John Houston, is in town on m
pleasure trip.
J. Lundy and J. Riddell have located a
nicely situated piece of ground adjoin-,
ing Tulameen City which has been vacant
for years.
Everyone will regret to hear of the
serious illness of L. W. Shatford, M.P.P.
for the Similkameen.    He is troubled
with a chronic illness which recently has
developed to an acute stage. He has
gone to New York to consult specialists
from whence all hope to hear of bis complete recovery.
Messrs. Baldwin & Amburn, Great
Northern engineers, are expected to arrive today. They have been in the Hope
mountains for dear a month exploring
for railway passes. It is reported a party
of G.N. surveyors is working from Chilliwack eastwards along the base of Chilliwack mountains in the endeavor to discover a new route and easier pass than
that already located.
L. G. MacHaffie, manager bans. B.N.A.,
Hedley, and Dr. McEwen of same place,
passed through Princeton last Saturday
en route to Vancouver via Hope Pass.
CROP OP GOOD OLD RYE.
John Gulliford has a field of rye,which
is heading out and gives promise of aa
enormous yield. The grain stands about
seven feet high and as straight as straw
can grow. It is a pretty-sight to behold,
nodding and waving in the gentle
breezes and Mr. Gulliford takes reasonable pride in showing it to visitors. It
would make a very fine photograph or
form an interesting subject for a landscape paintet which could be utilized as
an illustration of the great and varied
resources of this section. Two dozen
stalks from a single seed are shown on
the sample to be seen at the Star office
an indication of great strength of soil.
Mr. Gulliford has also a splendid crop of
clover which is so prolific that it has
lodged.
SOUNDS A LITTLE "FISHY."
Trout are so plentiful and hungry up at
Welldo that a thirsty traveller carrying
fishing flies entwined about his hat band
bent over to scoop' up some water in his
tile that he might wet his parched lips.
He never dreamed of the luck in store for
him for on lifting his hat out of the water
there were six of the finny tribe dangling from as many books and- one extra
large male caught onto the brim of the
hat evidently determined not to be left
out of the school. On the same day a
wealthy gentleman from Portland, Ore.,
returning from the Rising Snn gold-
platinnm mineral claim, on which he has
secured a 30-day option, stopped at a
purling brook to quaff some of Nature's
purest and best. In stooping down to
sip the water a big, fat trout taking it
cool in the bottom espied the large diamond which the gentleman wore on his
tie. He gave his tail one flop and leaped
for the sparkler but the owner was too
quick and caught fishie under the gill
landing him well ashore. Jndge Murphy
saw the fish weighed, when it just tipped
the scales at 7 lbs. $% ozs The owner
of the gem says that he has caught more
than trout with it—probably he means
'suckers.'

hops  on  the: Minister of ^Railways;
'and'winds' up by  saying^theiwhole;

doing so if follows  the  example of

What are the facts" regarding the
construction of,.|he railway west of
.   Keremeos ?. i The Star is in possess.-
ion of information fromt -authoritative sources  which  shows  there is
no foundation  what&ver  in the report of a so-called " delay " or ho'lcl-
■   up.    President Hill.affirms and reiterates  his  statements   made last
year  that  it  was-aud'is his inten:
tion to push' on  with construction
and that on no part of the line will
work  be  allowed to lag.    He expects  to   have  trains-, running  to
Vancouver   within    the   time announced.     As . the  V..V. &E.   is
,ii£pt a  government  aided or subsidized,road  it  must  be  built with
some regard to  economy and businesslike  management.    The iriter-

Secondly : there has been no delay caused by Mr. Ross, the Minister of Railways, the Railway

construction'. Certain matter's in.

when, he supports a monopolistic
government in giving away 800,000

"Hold  on: Take  this one!" exclaimed
