Coal basin of Princeton is practically inexhaustible.
Prompt, practical sympathy is a blessing to giver and receiver.
Princeton is the centre of a great coal, ore and placer district; it is on the proposed main line of the Great Northern, which is the shortest
possible route between Winnipeg  and Vancouver—Fish and game in abundance—Climate is unexcelled—Terminus of two stage routes.
Vol. vii.   No. 6.
PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, MAY 5, J906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
WILL ENTER HEDLEY
V., V. & E. in all Likelihood
will Divert Main Line
to Town.
Line in Direct Operation to Coast in
Two and a Half Years—Rails
to Deliver.
Duncan Ross, M.P., has presented the
petition of the Hedley board of trade to
the Minister of Railways, Ottawa, favoring the application of the V.,V. & E. to
gain direct entrance into the town instead of keeping on the south side of the
Similkameen river a mile away. The
application is resisted by the C.P.R. but
Mr. Ross is confident the Minister will
grant it as the opposing company had no
railway much nearer than a hundred
miles of Hedley and might never build
to it. Chief Engineer Kennedy is at
Ottawa in behalf of the V.,V. & E.
The president of the V.,V. & E. rail
way, John Hendry, has stated that trains
over this line will be running into Vancouver in about two years and a half. He
denies the assertion made in a Belling
ham paper that Mr. Hill would divert the
' road through Skagit canyon to Belling
ham instead of crossing Hope mountains
direct to Vancouver. Surveys have been
made via Coquihalla pass but parties are
still working to discover, if possible, an
, easier route. In addition to this, he says
that surveys are almost completed between Cloverdale and Hope and as soon
as the location is determined construction
will begin. He said that 6000 tons ot
rails had been ordered from the Domin
ion steel works, Cape Breton, to be delivered at Port Guichon, Fraser river, on
the first of September for tlie Cloverdale
end. In view of these fact*? Mr. Hendry
says the nonsensical rumors that President Hill intended to drain B.C. mineral
resources into Washington utterly fail of
foundation.
Judge Townsend, of Rossland, has been
'appointed  right-of-way agent for the V.,
V. & E. from  Cloverdale to the summit
of Hope mountains and will work eastwards,  igii
Engineer Amburn, and party are still
driving pegs in and about Princeton.
It is a hopeless task now to even guess
which of the many routes will be finally
selected.
LIQUOR LICENCE ACT.
The following amendment to the
' "Liquor Licence Act, 1900," has been
enacted by adding section iia thereto:
"iia. Only three licences to sell liquor
by retail shall be granted or issued for
any locality or portion of a locality, unless and until the population of such
locality exceeds five hundred, and there
after only one additional licence in respect of each additional one thousand of
the population actually resident within
the limits of such locality may be granted:
Provided always, that nothing herein
contained shall be deemed to cancel or
prevent the reuewal or transfer of any
liquor licence granted and issued prior
to the passing of this Act, but nevertheless in any locality where the number of
liquor licences heretofore granted or
issued exceeds the number limitefl by
this Act, no new liquor licences shall be
granted until the population of such
locality shall comply with the provisions
of this Act."
Section 42 is amended as follows : "And
provided, also, that an appeal from the
decision of the said Commissioners shall
lie in all cases both as to law and fact.
Such appeal shall lie to the County Judge
of the county or district in which the
premises for which a licence applied for
is situate: Provided that the appellant
shall within one week after the decision
complained of, give a written notice to
the Chief Licence Inspector of such
appeal."
HE SHIRKED THE VOTE.
Referring to the communication of H.
A. Turner published in the Star of April
7th and reprinted in the Gazette of April
19th, in which exception is made to the
fact that Mr. Shatford "went out into the
lobby when the division bell rang" on
the Eight-Hour Smelter Bill, the following extract from the Star correspondent's
letter is both conclusive and definite:
"You will note Shatford refrained from
voting. He was in the house but went
out into the lobby when the division bell
rang. Last session he voted for the bill.
This year he funked the situation " The
Star correspondent is a parliamentary
reporter of long service and excellent
record for reliability. From his seat in
the house no better opportunity for seeing and hearing all that transpires is
afforded and it is not at all probable that
he made a mistake. In any case, the
vital point is that Mr. Shatford shirked
the vote—which he did.
GEOLOGIST COMING.
Word has been received from Ottawa
that Chas. Camsell, geologist, will be
sent by the department of the Interior
to the Similkameen this season for the
purpose of investigating and reporting
on the geological characteristics of this
district. The work this year is preliminary to a thorough mapping of the mineral deposits as far as known, which will
be of great value to prospectors in locating leads and the probable occurrence of
certain minerals. With the great variety
of minerals known to exist here any
scientific help which the government
may give in finding them will be repaid
many fold in benefit to the whole country.

WC.P.E. AND NICOLA.
The several owners of the townsite^pfS
Nicola have about closed a deal with officials of the C.P.R. for a large portion of
their real estate. An option is in process of negotiation in which the company
will agree to make Nicola headquarters
for all railroad construction in the district. The importance of the deal is
certain to give impetus to all business
and increase values of all property thus
addingimmeasurably to the general prosperity of the whole district. A report is
in circulation in Princeton that C.P.R.
people have bought the mining interests
of J. Bates at Aspen Grove, which adds
to the general belief that the railway will
build to that camp at an early date.
COAL CO. WAKES DP.
The fifth annual meeting of the Similkameen Valley' Coal Co. was held at
Nelson recently, the only shareholders
from Princeton being W. C. McLean,
railway contractor and W. Gosnell, manager of the Princeton brewery. A new
board of directors was elected, viz : W,
Swannell, H. Goodeve, G. Nelson, G.
Tierney, E. Morrison, S. Brydges and
W. Gosnell, chairman. It is the intention of the new board to bring their valuable property to the producing stage
and be in readiness to deliver coal to the
V.,V. & E. when it reaches their mine.
W. Swannell, Nelson, is secretary of the
new board.
HOTEL CHANGES HANDS.
W. J. Henderson, formerly of the Hotel
Hedley at Hedley, has bought the Otter
Flat hotel from Charlie DeBarro and will
enter into occupation of it the first of
August. He will spend a considerable
sum on improvements to the premises
and otherwise make the hotel attractive
to all patrons. The natural beauty ~of
the grounds and the proximity of Otter
lake with its beautifully mirrored surface and famed fishing has attracted tourists in the past and with the convenience
of a railway skirting its shores this trade
will increase rapidly. The present popular proprietor, Mr. DeBarro, and the
lessee, Mr. Lundy, have made the hotel
a favorite resort of mining men and this
trade will also laigely increase with the
development of the rich mineral section
adjacent to Otter Flat. Mr. Henderson
has made a good buy.

PRINCETON IS CENTRAL.
The significance of a railway, or
railways, into the Similkameen can
hardly be realized or predicted at
the present time. Where it now
takes days to reach with mail will
then be done in a few hours. For
instance : Vancouver will be reached
in less than five hours which nowr
takes about eighty; Nelson and
Greenwood are distant about four
days from Princeton by rail and
steamer which wjdl be shortened by
the V.,"vY& E. to within a half
dozen hours. With the completion
of-the Hill system to Winnipeg
Princeton will be within two days'
touch of the bread basket of the
empire—the great prairie wheat
belt. These considerations of easy
access to important outside points
along with the proposed junction of
the Tulameen and Similkameen
railway routes of the Great Northern will make Princeton a divisional
centre of leading consequence. If,
as has been hinted by a minister of
the government that the C.P.R.
would build via Quilchena creek
into the Similkameen district, then
a third railway line would knock
at the gates of Princeton for admission. Eliminating all speculation regarding proposed routes and
railways the one outstanding feature
of greatest import is the purchase
• and negotiations for tracts of land
in and about Princeton by the Great
Northern.
EMIGRANTS TO CANADA.
The Star is in receipt of a long
communication dealing with the
immigration of a class of undesirables into Canada from the old
country. The writer, F. Richards,
of Vancouver, says : " Some of the
English newspapers venture the
assertion that ' it would be selfish
and almost barbarous to shut the
doors of Canada, when there is room
to provide for more than a hundred
million people, especially when we
have only a twentieth part of that
number in the^Dominion.' This is
not the (question. It is rather a
question whether or not these immigrants would ;be a charge upon
the few people in Canada already
working hardtto improve their condition.    We have already closed the
THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
May 5, 1906
"door to a most industrious class of
persons. We have placed a head
tax of $500 upon the Chinese who
do work and are not a tax upon the
people. * * Now, sir, if we
permit the English authorities to
shunt their burdens upon our shoulders then we are making our
chances for social improvement
more difficult. They have persisted in making the old country the
dumping ground for Europe with
the result that they have now thousands of working people walking
about the country seeking work,
while aliens are doing it for less
than a living wage. It should be
known that we do not object to an
industrious immigrant, but we do
object to shiftless paupers.    * * "
There is no doubt that many of
the older countries would be glad
to send their undesirable subjects to
Canada and thus obviate the ever-
recurring problem of dealing with
them at home. It is not fair nor
honorable, however, for any nation
to foist upon another its physically
and socially unfit people and it is
the duty ot the Dominion government to protect citizens from imposition of the kind Mr. Richards
alludes to. A standard should be
set for all immigrants, failing to
pass which would debar them from
landing. The crowded cities of the
old lands do not produce, as a rule,
persons of resourceful characteristics among the poorer class. They
have been dependent all their lives
and can ill adapt themselves to the
western way where everybody
thinks and acts independently. A
training school in which the rudiments of agriculture, farm life, lumbering and laboring generally could
be taught would fit intending immigrants for homemaking in western
Canada. No matter how poor an
immigrant may be the door should
be wide open to those of good character and with an abundance of
muscle for capital. This class
would be welcome in the Similkameen where there is scarcity of
woodsmen, railway builders and
laboring men generally.
Strenuous opposition to the application of the V., V. & E. to
deflect its line from the south side
of the Similkameen river to the
town of Hedley on the north is
offered by the C.P.R. at Ottawa.
The minister of railways, Hon. Mr.
Emerson, before whom the application is made, will have the sentiment of every fairminded resident
of the Similkameen in his favor
should he grant the reasonable request. It would be a great hardship to the citizens of Hedley if
they were denied railway connection merely to suit the whims of
an opposing corporation which has
given no earnest of constructing
beyond running a line seven or
eight years ago. The C.P.R. is
too slow.
WARNING - GLANDERS.
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 the spread of the disease and the
establishment of fresh centres of infection.
1. 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 stables, 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 hof
steam, or boiling water, adding to the
latter at least one quart of crude carbolic
acid to each 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 : iron articles can be rendered
harmless by passing them through fire
or by immersing them for some time in
boiling water. All litter, from suspected
animals should be burned or carefully
fenced until used.
5. Farmers and others should, whenever possible, avoid admitting strange
horses and mules to the premises occupied by their own animals especially of
the same species. It is a good plan to
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
glanders 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 purchased in or from districts where glanders 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
species.
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^time being
any external manifestation whatever, the
only means of detection in such cases
being the Mallein test, and that these
occult or latent cases are in some respects
the most dangerousJSecause 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
cieed 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 possible, be
burned or, failing this)*;buried at least six
feet beneath the surface.
9. Owners of premises where outbreaks.
have been dealt with should bear in mind*
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 Agriculture.
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,
Veterinary Director-General.
