LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Snowden & McMnllen are down about
40.feet with the shaft they are sinking for
the Vermilion Forks Co.   Their cont-r.net
—,™^3-iacm flili is expected in the Boundary this week and will run out to the
end of steel on the V.,V. & E. He will
not come to Princeton this trip as the
roads are a trifle dusty.
Engineer Amburn left on Tuesday to
make a reconnaisance of the Similkameen and Roche river routes and also to
discover a feasible pass through the southern part of Hope mountains for the V.,
V. & E. railway.
The weather is very dry and hot with
warm, wilting winds. The thermometer
has been as high as 98 ° in the shade.
Now is the time to be careful of outdoor
fires.
E. Cox and family and Frank Gillis
and family arrived last Saturday from
Maine. Mr. Cox is a carpenter and will
be a permanent resident here.
J. G. MacDonell and Finlay Fraser
attended Masonic installation in Hedley
Thursday night. What's the matter with
starting*a lodge in Princeton ?
Dog days have begun and  will last for
. another month.   Is that why everything
is so doggedly quiet these days ?

THEY CAME AND SAW.
R. B. Lamb, manager of the Daly Reduction Co., Hedley, was in Princeton
Thursday enjoying the pastoral beauties
of this section and taking in the excitement of frontier city life. He was accompanied by W. H. Weed, of the U.S.
geological department, who came here in
the interests of that scientific institution.
He was desirous of obtaining information
of platinum deposits which are known
to be in this district. Placer miners in
the early days recovered considerable
quantities of the "white gold" but very
little serious attention has been given to
platinum prospecting or mining. Occasionally Chinamen bring in granules of
platinum with their gold dust. Expert
and systematic prospecting for platinum
near the Hope mountains it is thought
would be well rewarded. Mr. Lamb
was interested in the coal deposits which
• exist here and probably has an eye to the
. future for   a   supply of this fuel to his
company.   They returned to Hedley yes-
: terday.
THE SCHOOL MEETING
Urgent Need of New School
House Emphasized by
Trustee Board.
Rapid Increase of Scholars  Due to
New Arrivals — Annual
Report Read.
Only a few ratepayers turned up at
the annual school meeting last Saturday
which was presided over by C. E. Thomas
with F. W. Groves, secretary. The report of the school trustees was received
and adopted and is as follows: "The
trustees of Princeton public school beg
to submit their report for the six months
ending June 1906 The number of children on register is 25 ; average daily attendance for June 24.33. This shows a
gratifying increase of pupils for the six
months as the attendance for January was
15 66 and number on register 18. Tbe
average attendance of pupils is good,
being only one less than the maximum.
The trustees wish to call your attention
to the overcrowded and unsanitary condition of the school house, it being designed to accommodate only 20 children,
and also to the necessity for some action
being taken to provide increased accommodation before the fall term commences
as there ate now over 30 children of
school age in the district and some 33
under, and several families on their way
to reside in Princeton.
Your trustees on taking office last January entered into communication with
the superintendent of education re erection of a new school building with the
result that the superintendent stated it
was the intention of the department to
provide a regular school building for the
district and that the erection of it would
be commenced next spiing. Your trust
ees beg to point out to you that some
action must be taken for increasing the
accommodation before next spring, as
with the approach of railroad construction and the number of families now on
their way it will be impossible to accom
modate the increased number of children
in the district.
Attached is a statement of receipts and
expenditure, in it the trustees have received #75 from the Education department and paid out in teachers' salary the
sum of JS75-23 and bills still owing to the
amount of $8.25."
The amount to be raised for teachers'
salary arid contingencies for current year
is #275. C. E. Thomas was elected a
trustee for this year and H. Cowan was
chosen as auditor. A petition to the
government for immediate action re a
new school house was presented and sent
to the department by the secretary. It
was suggested that a public meeting be
held to strengthen by resolution the
efforts of the trustees to provide better
accommodat ion.
BAD AND fiOOD LUCK
California Earthquake has its
Sad Phase Relieved by
Lucky Strike.
Cousin Jack Rich in Telluride Ore
Develops Vast Body After
Persevering Work.
T. A. Rogers, of Mountain View, Cal.,
arrived in town last Saturday from his
home having come in conuection with
his large mining interests in this district.
He is the first eye witness of the great
earthquake disaster of April 18 to reach
this town. To a Star representative he
exhibited some very interesting views
of the destruction caused by the quake
besides giving a vivid description of his
personal experience and of the calamity
generally. His large brick building in
which he carried a stock of general
merchandise worth $30,000, was demolished causing damage equal to 50 per
cent, of the whole. Out of sixteen in the
building at the time of the collapse only
one person was seriously hurt, a marvellous escape in view of the fact that
scarcely one brick was left standing on
another out of about 400,000. Mr. Rogers
own dwelling escaped serious injury. Put
evidences of mysterious escape were not
lacking. In his bedroom a large buteau
containing many hundredweight of bed
linen, etc., which no two men could
handle, was lifted by what might be
termed a seismic kick clean over Mr.
Rogers' bed and deposited upright on
the opposite side of the room. A short
distance from his town the earth opened
six feet wide for a distance of sixteen
miles. While Mr. Rogers has suffered
great loss the sting of it has largely been
removed by practical sympathy from
citizens who have generously patronized
him and extended the helping hand in
many ways. There is no earthquake insurance on his store or contents but the
German-American Fire Ins. Co. in which
he was insured has nobly given $2,000
to him. It is this unselfish attitude of
citizens generally which has given cour
age to the afflicted ones and Mr. Rogers
is building better than before. He thinks
'Frisco will again resume its former greatness cheered on to it by the open-handed
bounty and encouraging words of the
whole world.
Almost coincident with Mr. Rogers'
misfortune in California comes the good
news that a great strike has been recently
made on the Cousin Jack at Boulder
creek. Mr. Rogers is largely interested
in the Cousin Jack, on which and some
minor properties he has spent $20,000.
It was to see this latest strike that he
snatched a few days from rebuilding operations alluded to.   His partner, Mr. Gal
linger, is elated with the showing of the
Cousin Jack which, as to body and value
($25 Per ton) is one of the richest mines
in the Similkameen. Mr. Rogers returns
home with a lightsome heart, many others
having Stock in the mine sharing with
him in the glad prospect.
SEARCH FOR LOST LEAD.
J. O. Coulthard left on Thursday for
his home at Sapperton, a suburb of New
Westminster, where he may be addressed.
He expects to return in about a couple of
months to look after his mining interests
here. The contract for finding the Lost
Lead mineral claim is well under way,
the wing dam on the Tulameen being the
first and most important to be undertaken. Last year the dam was carried
away by high water in the fall. Better
luck is expected this year as no heavy
fall rains are anticipated. Mr. Coulthard well deserves a rich reward for his
plucky venture in trying to recover the
Lost Lead, which is said by old-timers to
be of fabulous wealth in free gold.
AN APPEAL TO NATURALISTS-
Editor Star—Sir : The Natural History Society has undertaken the work of
establishing a wild flower garden in this
city. We have secured a most eligible
s<"te in Beacon Hill park and the city authorities have promised to make us two
small rocky ponds. Our aim is to secure
a representative collection of the many
beautiful wild flowers and shrubs native
of this province.
We now appeal to anyone who is interested in the floia of his particular
locality to help us. We want this fall
only those subjects that will thrive on
rocks and in dry situations, as we shall
not have water until next season.
Our funds are limited and we cannot
offer to pay for plants bnt will gladly pay
freight charges.    It is a  labor of fove on
our part and  we shall  be glad to hear
from anyone able and  willing to help us
in the good work.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The annual meeting held last
Saturday of the Princeton school
district was not as well attended as
the importance of matters to be
considered demanded. Apathy on
the part of taxpayers regarding
educational facilities and accommodation at Princeton cripples the
efforts being made by the. department to remedy some evils under
the old system. The new School
Act requires study, and intelligent
discussion at the annual and other
meetings. Some of its clauses are
hazy and difficult of interpretation
as was shown atthe recent meet-
lr/g.' On one thing, however, all
were united and that was increased
accommodation for scholars. The
building now serving as a school
house is totally inadequate for the
purpose. Every inch of space is
utilized to afford seating room, even
the stove being removed to afford
seats for two. At the end of the
summer vacation a number of new
scholars will be presented for admission,' who will of necessity be
turned away if either temporary or
permanent accommodation be not
provided in the interim. From now
forward the tendency to increase
school population will be enhanced
by the tread of progress due to the
■advancing railway. In any case
the tinder  box  which now serves
; as a school house is a disgrace to
the town and   a positive hindrance
j to its growth.    Parents will be loth
. to bring their children here while
there is lack of accommodation and
the government knowing this will
be held responsible therefor.
The B.C. Mining Exchange is
a. publication supposed to be devoted exclusively to mining as its
• name would seem to indicate. "But
it scarcely ever fails to use the small
space set apart for original or editorial matter in boosting the McBride administration. In so doing
it betrays the reader who naturally
expects a mining journal to stick to
its sphere. This partiality for the
"first Conservative government B.C.
has ever had" is hardly becoming
for a mining periodical, especially
when that government collaborates
with  adventurers  of a  low  moral
type-      _________
Every  successful   business  man
bears testimony to the merits of
advertising. In these days of competition no man engaged in business does himself justice who does
not advertise, large or small,' in
some newspaper. It must be intelligently done." Besides,- the newspaper is a public asset. Its value
to a community as an advertising
agency is in proportion to the patronage accorded it. The out-of-
town purchaser always notes a fresh
and readable advertisement and if
he is well served by the party selling, the familiar ad. will always direct him to that house or address—it becomes the sign to him
which points the way. Regarding
the mail order business the Cran-
brook. Herald has this to say : ' 'The
newspaper man saw a farmer friend
of his receiving a set of harness
from the freight office, the consignment coming^from a Winnipeg mail
order house, and remonstrating with
him, attempted to prove that he was
making a mistake, as many of the
local dealers would furnish him
with the same or better goods just
as cheap, and keep the profit at
home. ' "But this is the first time
that I have heard that there was a
harness shop in this town. I have
taken your paper for five years and
have never seen a line of advertising in it about such an institution
in all the time I have been a subscriber. But, you see, the Winnipeg house has kept me posted all
the time.' "
NOTICE.
The game of bowls, or bowling,
is being revived in eastern Canada.
It was the game of our granddad-
dies but fell into disuse through the
introduction of more strenuous
sport, such as baseball, lacrosse and
football. Bowling is a simple game
yet affording all the exercise neces
sary to be healthful. A piece of
flat ground 40x60 feet square is
required of which there is plentj'
in and about Princeton. Bowling
in the summer and curling in.the
winter would be ample exercise to
drive away ennui and even some of
the ills that flesh is heir to. Who
will set the ball rolling ?
It is hoped that President Hill
will adopt a more euphonious name
than Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern for i his new transcontinental
line. How would Princeton, Winnipeg & Vancouver Railway Co.
suit "Uncle Jim?" .
According to the last census there
were 1,181,255 Canadians in the.
United States, a little more than 11
per cent, of the total foreign born
population. Of the above number
781 were journalists, lawyers 1891,
clergymen. 2000, physicians .3800,
teachers ( and college professors 13,-
000, literary and scientific, people
528. Two railway presidents, J..J.
Hill and S. R. Callaway are native

Mrs. Nuwed—Here's the bread I started
to make today. Isn't it too annoying ?
Mr. Nuwed—Why, it isn't baked at all.
Mrs. Nuwed—I know it isn't ; that's just
it I put plenty of baking powder in it,
but it doesn't seem to have worked.
■'Bridget," said the literary woman, "I
wish you would go down to the library"
and bring me 'Flavius Josephus.'" The
new girl left the room to execute the
commission. Presently a terrific noise
was heard on the stairway, and Bridget
pushed the door open with her foot a
moment later, dragging in by the collar
a large and reluctant Newfoundland dog.
"Here he is, Mrs. Dinnis," she said, "tut
ye oughtn't to have sint me fr 'im. It's
a man's job.' The baste thried to bite
me, an' I had to fight 'im iv'ry fut o' the
way !"
Marriage Broker — The prospective
bride is not pretty, but owns a debt free
building. Suitor—Have you a . photograph ? Broker—Certainly ; here she is.
•Suitor—No, of the house.
The wife of a Gordon Highlander re
ceived an invitation to visit him at the
barracks in Edinburgh and took with her
their six-year old daughter. When they
arrived the husband was on sentry duty,
so could not be approached. The child
eyed her daddy with a rather sorrowful
but amazed expression as he passed up
and down the square shouldering his rifle
and wearing a kilt. She had never before seen him thus arrayed. Presently,
with a solemn look.on her face, the child
loudly exclaimed: "Mammy, when
daddy finds the man who stole his breeks
will he give me that little frock ?"
Friend — Didn't your husband rave
when you showed him the dressmaker's
bill ? Wife—Rather. Friend—And how
did you quiet him ? Wife—I showed him
the milliner's account, and then he became simpiy speechless.
Father—Do you think it is a good thing
to spank a child ? Doctor—Well, it often
relieves the parent of a bad fit of temper.
