THE GRIM  REAPER
Visits Princeton and Two Untimely Deaths Result=One
Self-inflicted.
Mrs. Finlay Drops Dead from Horse
from Heart Failure—J. G. McDonald Shoots Himself.
*'In the midst of life we are in death."
The full meaning of these words has been
brought home to the residents of Princeton the last week with full force, in the
sudden and tragic death of Mrs. Finlay
and J. G. McDonald.
Last Thursday the death of Mrs. Finlay, relict of the late Mat Finlay, who
died on June 21st last, in New Westminster, came suddenly and without a moment's warning. Mrs. Finlay, in company with ber daughter, Jeannette, and
J. E. McCauley, was on her way to the
Reco mine, Copper mountain, where she
had engaged to act as cook for Mr. Mc-
Cauley's camp during the winter. When
within a few miles of her destination,
and apparently without any warning,
Mrs. Finlay fell from her horse, touched
by the hand of death. The body was
removed to Princeton and on Saturday
the remains were interred in the cemetery.
In the absence of a clergyman, Mr.
A. Murchie appropriately officiated at
the grave.
The late Mrs. Finlay's maiden name
■was Matilda Lawrence, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Lawrence, of Yale, B. C., where
she was born some fort} years ago. She
moved to Princeton with her husband
about fourteen years ago, where she con
tinued to live to the time of her death.
An only child, Jeannette, aged 17, survives her parents, and much sympathy is
felt for her in the trying circumstances
in which she has been called upon to
pass through. She will likely proceed
east to reside with her father s relatives,
at Ingersoll, Ont>- In the meantime Miss
§ Finlay is staying with her aunt, Mrs. W.
I. Holmes, of Granite Creek.
%
By his own hand J. G. McDonald, on
Monday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock, met
death by blowing out his brains with a
30-30 carbine rifle and launched his soul
on the sea of eternity. Mr. McDonald
was employed at the Reco mine and was
an intimate friend of the late Mrs. Finlay, to whom it is understood he was engaged to be married. He grieved over
her death and sought to drown his sorrows by drink, with the result that he
became crazed under its influence. On
Sunday afternoon a friend persuaded him
to return to the mine, accompanying him
3n the trip, thinking that once he was
Vack to work he would brace up  and
shake off his depression.
When a short distance from Princeton
Mr. McDonald gave expression to suicidal
intention and when Ashnola was reached
he got possession of a gun and made an
attempt on his life, but the weapon was
taken from him before the fatal step was
taken. Next morning McDonald seemed
to be in his right mind and quite rational
and the trip to the mine was continued
without any further signs of trouble
At 5 o'clock Monday afternoon he was
sitting outside the camp talking to J. E
McCauley, when he arose and walking
into the tent took a drink of liquor
from a bottle which hie bad Mr. McCauley was busy and did not take notice
of his actions, thinking him unlikely to
do anything irrational. Shortly afterwards, however, he was startled by the
report of a shot and upon investigation
he was horrified to. find McDonald had
shot himself through the head. The
gun was evidentlv discharged in the unfortunate victim's mouth passing out
through the back of the head, inflicting
a most terrible and ghastly wound.
Mr. McCauley at once proceeded to
Princeton and notified the authorities.
The arm of the law decided that a coroner s inquest was unnecessary. Friends
of the deceased wishing to see him given
a respectable butial brought the body to
town this morning and the funeral took
place in the afternoon.
Little is known here of the' late Mr.
McDonald beyond the fact that he was a
druggist and came to Princeton from
Calgary a couple of years ago. He ap
peared to be a very decent young man,
but strong drink and other evils had
been instrumental in undermining his
better self with the result that he met a
sad and untimely end.
" DOWN ON THE FARM."
The Goldbank dairy farm, Five-mile
not onlv' produces an excellent quality of
butter, but its proprietors, Gibson Bros.>
take a warranted pride in its grain growing. Some stalks of wheat and oats, to
be seen at the Stai, show great grain productiveness of the soil. A stalk of oats
with 160 grains and one of wheat with
125, plump an,d bright, also timothy 5 ft,
10 in. in height, leaves no room for doubt
as to the ground being prolific.
SELF-BINDER WORKS WELL.
Arthur Reith has been very busy of
late with his self-binder cutting his own
and neighbor's crops. The machine is a
Massey-Harris and gives good satisfaction. The grain and hay crops of Five-
Mile are bumper this year, which coupled with the good prices make 'Hodge'
smile all over. Mr. Reith is one ofthe
progressive farmers of that section, has
up-to-date machinery and a fine farm in
a high state of cultivation.
RAILWAY WORK ON
To Princeton This Fall  As=
sured—Will Reach Here
Next Year.
Construction Gamps Being Organized
Along the Line in Preparation for
Immediate Work.
A. F. McDonald returned from Keremeos Monday and reports railway construction on the move. Camps are being
organized and work to Hedley will be
s.arted once these arrangements are completed. Contractor Welch is quoted as
saying that work to Princeton will be
proceeded with as fast as labor can be
secured and gives it as his opinion that
the rails will be here by next fall.
^ The first regular passenger train to
Keremeos is slated for Sunday next. The
alfalfa town will be right in it.
HINDOOS RUN OUT.
The citizens of Bellingham, Washington, evidently believe in a "white man's"
town, and do not hesitate to employ any
kind of means to that end. Of late the
Hindoos have been invading Bellingham
in hordes, finding ready employment in
the mills, taking the place of the whites.
On Thursday last a mob of half a thousand men, many of them done out of their
livelihood by the dusky invaders, organized a movement to drive the Hindoo from
the city and they succeeded in making
things lively for a while. The mills were
visited and everything in the shape of a
Hindoo was attacked both fore and aft
and some 150 natives of India, beaten,
naked or half clothed, were got in line
and ordered to march and keep on marching until a more congenial abiding place
was found. And they marched. The
police were powerless to stop the mob in
their crusade. That's the way Uncle
Sam does budness.
0£-     BONY STAMP MILL.
y'TDoc" Davis's stamp mill on Granite
creek has been idle for some months
owing to what seems a misunderstanding
with Hart Bros., who have a bond on a
free-milling gold proposition near the
north fork. The mill is well adapted for
its purpose and being light (1,000 lbs.) is
readily transported in the hills. For development and ore testing it is all that
could be expected of a small mill.
"Doc" has had many years experience
in mining and milling and parties employing him and his outfit will receive
competent service.
Tbe weather man must have slipped a
cog the last couple ef days. From bright
sunny days a sudden change has been
made to cold windy weather.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Frank Bailey, old time prospector and
promoter, is convalescing from a recent
severe attack of inflammatory rheumatism and will soon be ready to hit the
bills agaiu.
J. Gillis, clerk at the A. E. Howse Co's
store, left on Thursday last for the coa.«t.
While here Mr. Gillis made many friends,
and was a most capable and obliging
employee.
Sam Spencer and wife returned last,
week from their mine, Hope mountains,,
where they have been working during
the greater part of the summer. There
is a splendid showing on the propertv
which has both body and values to recommend it to the capitalist.
On Monday, Sept. 2nd, at All Saints''
Chmch, Edmonton, Alta., by the Ven-
Archdeacon Carey, Edward Aubrey
Schon, eldest son of Dr. Schon, of Princeton, B. C, was married to Norah, eldest
surviving daughter of H. P. Tardrew,
Esq., of Ufracombe, Devon, England.   ,
N. Bangs left for Spokane yesterday
on a business visit and will return next
week.
D. R. Tait, of Grand Forks, left for
home yesterday morning.
J. Oswald Coulthard and Mrs. Coulthard and family arrived from the coast on
Thursday last over the Hope trail and
will take up their residence in Princeton.
Miss Mamie Popple, Mrs Coulthard's
neice, accompanied them in and will
spend the winter here.
H. Hunter is showing a sample of apple of the Wealthy variety, grown' on his.
property between Princeton and Allison,,
which proves that under proper care and
attention this class of fruit can be grown
in this section to compare favorably with.,
the best of them.   His crop, though not.
as heavy as last year, is of a larger and.
better quality.
Mr. Winslow, Great Northern mining;
expert, paid   a   visit to  Princeton last
week and   took   samples  from   various
properties out with him.
MINING NOTES.
Mr. KirkpBtrick returned from a short
visit to Law's camp on Bear creek. He
reports that the work on the mine is progressing favorably. A contract has been
let to P. Devine for a 300-foot tunnel on
the St. Lawrence at which distance the
lead Is expected to be struck. This camp
is rapidly getting into a shape to ship,
and should prove a big dividend payer.
J. Oswald Coulthard will work a smalL
force on his property on Friday creek
the coming winter, in development work.
If the present high grade ore proves in
quantity work on a large scale will be
commenced in the spring and by the
time the railway'is here the mine will be
ready for business.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
I A report has gained considerable
credibility  that  Duncan  Ross, the
representative  for  Yale-Cariboo in
the Commons, will retire from public  life  ag4  devote  his undivideS
1;ime ,to;thjeicpnduct of a newspaper
-at  >Prince    Rupgrt.     Should  Mr.
Ross* not seek re-election after  the
forthcoming "^dissolution it is probably on the  suggestion  of his party
or' leader.     Mr.   Ross  has been a
stormy petrel in, the ;IJouse at times
and it ,js just  possible  that  he will
relinquish  the  arena of debate for
the   peaceful   solitudes   of   Prince
Rupert.     It   is   understood   that a
number of candidates are available
including  Denis Murphy, well and
favorably known to Princetonians ;
J. D. Swanson, barrister,   of Kam
loops, a  sterling, and  capable man
who  commands- the  respect of all
partita, and Dr. Macdonald, an able
and'energetic  young   man of Vernon.    If unanimity should prevail
ih   the  Liberal  ranks   any  one of
those  named  or  Mr.  Ross  would
be returned   but   the  seeds of dis-
rsension,   so   carelessly   allowed   to
take root for want of the diplomatic
hand  shake  and  cultivated unity,
Mnay jeopardize the seat.    We shall
see I..,.       ' HHl
smelters  for  want of coke are not
re-assuring.    There  may  be  a recurrence of the coke shortage due
to various causes.    At present an
alternative supply  of coke cannot
be  obtained,   except  by  long and
costly  hauls.     The    Crow's  Nest
collieries have a monopoly of coke
making in the interior of B.C. and
the  smelter  people  are anxious to
overcome their dependency on one
source  of supply.    It  is  probably
not   very   generally    known  that
within  fifteen  miles  of   Princeton
and   near  Tulameen, on the"north
fork  of   Granite  creek  there  is-a
coking  coal   of   undoubted   merit.
It has been tried   in every vvay and
always with best  results.    Here is
opportunity  for a smelter company
or a combination of them to acquire
a never-failing  supply of first class
coke.    In  another year the V., V.
&  E-,   or.a branch   of it,   will be
running close  to  this coal and the
coke producing industry could then
be established without hindrancee.

Tp^be.a "white"' or a brownBrit-
ish'Columbia ? That is the ques-
t on ! The Star is in favOr of the
j urest and best white immigration
that can be obtained and would exclude all Asiatics to secure that desirable end. The Asiatic, being
1 eathen, can never assimilate with
our high western type of civilization which is most exacting in
maintaining the superiority of the
white race. It is no time to philosophize, the danger is at our door
There is nothing worthy of imitation in a heathen that we do
not already possess, so the door
ought to be barred to their entrance. White immigrants from the
northern parts of Europe give the
b^st results in Canada where tbe
rigors of winter are more congenial
to them. From the eastern provinces there is little hope of any
extensive emigration to the west as
there is & low birth rate or total
birrenness due to the demands of
fashion and to disease.
Reports  from  the Boundary regarding  the   recent  tie-up  of tbe
The awful  swiftness with which
punishment  and   death  are measured.out  to those who live in continued   and  open   violation of  the
moral and civil law has  been forcibly  illustrated  of (late.     Flagrant
wrong-doing   may   be "tolerated or
even winked   at   by the authorities
but sooner or later it cannot escape
the  AU-steing  Eye.    The  laws of
Nature and decency cry out against
that which destroys  the'sacredhes's
and  chastity   of   home! "' And  we
often note how   the unseen protecting arm is thrown around the youth
amid an atmosphere of vile temptation.    Home   is  the first and  most
sacred institution   of earth and the
libertine  who  destroys  it or helps
to cannot   fail   of an  early  or late
reward.    Wrong-doing of any.kjnd
always entails- punishment in some
manner, that is: an inexorable law
which discovers  secret lawbreakers
no matter where.    Suicide, murder,
the gallows and the  "p,en"   awaits
all such.
Weak Kidneys, surely point to weak-kidney
Nerres. The Kidneys, like the Heart, and the.
Stomach, find their weakness, not in the org&n'
itself, butii the nerves that control and?guide,
land strengtnen them. Dr. Shoop's Restorative is

SMILES.
A story is current concerning a
professor who is reputed to be
slightly absent-minded. The learned man had arranged to escort his
wife one evening to the theatre. "I
don't like the tie you have on. I
wish you would go up stairs and
put on another," said his wife. Tte
professor tranquilly obeyed. Moment after moment elapsed, until
finally the impatient wife went up
stairs to learn the cause of delay.
In his room she found her husband
undressed and getting into bed.
Habit had been too much for him
when he took off his tie.
Landlord—Sir, the other tenants
will not stay in the flat if you insist
on playing the cornet. Mr. Toots
—I'm glad of that. The}7 were
very annoying.
Mabel (aged 6)—Ain't you afraid
of our big dog ? The Parson (very
thin)—No, my dear. He would
not make mnch of a meal off me.
Mabel—Oh, but he likes bones best.

Oldest Established Paper in the Similkameen District
The Star may properly lay claim to being an important factor in making known the vast mineral
resources of the Princeton District and the consequent attraction of capital for the development of
its extensive copper=go!d propositions and the country generally. With the encouragement and
patronage of the public the Star proposes to redouble its efforts for the promotion of the interests of
the whole district. It is hoped to maintain its present form of eight pages and increase with the
installment of an expensive Mergenthaler Linotype and electric presses. While the Star aims to
give general satisfaction it cannot please all and wouldn't if it could. Subscription price from now
to the end of 1908—$2.00.   Send in your name and "dough" and help a good cause along.
