a
PRINCETON LIBERAL
Association Meet and Petition
Dominion Member for a
Change in Postoffice.
The Princeton Liberal Association met
Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock in . the
Star block to consider the advisability of
petitioning the member for Yale-Cariboo,
Duncan Ross, to have the different Dominion Government offices in Princeton,
such as postmaster, telephone agent and
excise-man consolidated and placed in
charge of an officer and situated independent of any mercautile business.
President J. R. Campbell occupied the
chair with the following members present: Arthur Reith, vice-president; B. S.
Kennedy, secretary; J. M. Wright, Alex.
Bell, H. L. Godsoe, L. C. Wynne. The
president stated briefly the object of the
meeting and asked the meeting to show
by expi ession and vote whether the ad
dress, which he would ask the secietary
to read, should be forwarded to Mr. Ross
or not. Mr. Campbell wished to contradict a rumor that had been circulated
to the effect that he was in search of the
postniastership. He was not now nor never
had been looking for the situation.
The address reads as follows:
Duncan Ross, Esq., M. P. for Yale-
Cariboo—The Princeton Liberal As
sociation in meeting duly assembled this
17th day of June, 1907, recommends in
regard to the postoffice of this town that
it be not associated or kept in connection
with any mercantile business;
That the three Dominion Government
positions of postmaster, excise-man, and
telephone agent, for the present at least,
be amalgamated and managed by one
man;
That the member, Mr. Ross, be respectively urged to point out to the Government the necessity for a Dominion Government building in Princeton, adapted
to its uses;
That owing to the refusal of the present postmaster, before the executive committee of the Princeton Board of Trade,
to take charge of the telephone in addition to the other two offices, we urge
that Mr. L. C. Wynne be appointed as
postmaster as soon as possible.
Mr. Wright here suggested that the
Government be asked to make Princeton
a customs port and include it in the address, which was adopted.
Mr. Bell, postmaster, stated that he
had not refused to take the telephone,
notwithstanding several present had understood him to say so, and after some
discussion it was decided not to press the
point. He further stated that he had
conducted the postoffice to the best of
his ability and had endeavored to serve
the public faithfully.
It was decided by the   meeting  that
there were good grounds for a change of
postmaster and that the office should be
removed and placed entirely separate
from any mercantile business. In the
interests of the public it was decided to
have the new office so arranged that box
holders should have access to the same
up to a reasonable hour after the general
office had closed.
Mr. L. C. Wynne's application for the
position of postmaster, etc., was re.id and
on motion favorably received.
There being no other business to transact the meeting adjourned.
The above is necessarily a brief report
of what took place at the meeting but is
quite sufficient to let the public see that
the Princeton Liberal Association is alive
to the interests of the general public and
that they do not hesitate to act in these
interests in an open and above board
manner. Mr. Bell has no doubt fulfilled
the duties of postmaster to the best of his
ability, but in the public interests a
change is advisable especially in the location, where it will be possible lo have
access to private boxes after general
hours and in separating it from any store
or store owner ; also in making one man
responsible for the satisfactory conduct of
the Dominion government offices and
positions in Princeton, and if he fails to
give efficient and proper service another
will. The idea of having a customs
port established here is a good one and
i: will not be the fault of the Liberals of
Princeton if it is not secured.
ON TO KEREMEOS.
E. F. Voigt returned on Monday
from Portland after an absence of several
weeks on business. Mr. Voigt reports
having met with unpleasant weather
most of the time and was glad to get
back to the banana belt. Returning by
way of Spokane and Oroville he was
able to see what was being done along
the line of the V.,V. & E. The damage
to the Armstrong bridge caused by the
recent high water has been repaired and
rail laying to Keremeos was expected to
commence on Tuesday and from present
indications trains will be running to that
point by August. What will happen after
that no one seems to know.
A meeting of Princeton Liberal association will be held tomorrow even ing at 8.
A. Murchie, photographer, has his new
studio on Bridge street complete and is
now ready to attend to all orders in his
line.
Mr. Johnson arrived from Nelson on
Monday to take charge of the brewery
here.
Mr. Faulds, general manager of the
Nicola Coal and Coke Co , was a passenger on the Nicola stage to-day.
Pay your provincial taxes now and save"
the rebate.
Public worship will be held in the
court house Sunday night at 7:30.
JULY 1 CELEBRATION
Committees    Appointed    and
Prospects Bright  for Excellent Sport.
The Dominion Day celebration committee met last night in the Princeton
pool parlors to further complete arrangements for the sports on that day. Subcommittees were appointed with the following as chairmen: Baseball and Caledonian sports, J. R. Campbell; horse
racing. Kit Summers; rocn drilling, Jim
C-itiipbell; decoration, J. Swansborough;
dance, Geo. Wardle. A. E.Jackson was
made treasurer and Bill Martin was selected as marshal for the day. J. Macdonell was chosen captain of the baseball club for 1907. The decision to add a
drilling contest to the programme is a
good one and the handsome purse of $ 125
that has been hung up should attract a
lrrge number of competitors.
Everything points to a most successful
day of sport and the energetic committees appointed will leave no stone unturned to make it a red letter day in
Princeton.
PRESBYTERIAN MISSIONS.
The meeting addressed by Dr. Herd-
man, Presbyterian superintendent of missions, Monday night, was interested in
his remarks, having reference mainly to
the upbuilding and maintenance of. the
church here. He sought the co-operation
of christians generally in maintaining
a healthy moral atmosphere in the community by attending to their religious
duties and commended the Sunday school
to their attention and support as a means
of awakening in children a desire to learn
of and sCrve their Creator. At the meeting of the board of managers it was de.
cided that a report would issue Irom them
in a few weeks regarding this field and its
missionary supply. It was also decided
to have public worship eveiy Sunday alternating morning or afternoon with evening. 	
Work has been commenced from Penticton stringing the telephone wire on
new poles and when the work has been
completed to Nicola a great improvement
in the service may be looked for. The
work of erecting new poles has been under the watchful eye of D. A. Carmichael
who has proved himself a most efficient
officer.
Thos. McFarlane, F.R.S.C, Dominion
analyst, and one of Canada's foremost
scientists, dropped dead at Ottawa last
week.
Conservatives are active all over the
Dominion preparing for battle; even
Princeton is said to be aspiring for an
association to be of some public use on
the lines of the local Liberal association.

Miss Ethel Thynne, who is now in a
Vancouver hospital, having undergone
an operation for appendicitis, is hastening toward, what everybody hopes, a full
recovery. The case of Miss Thynne has
been a pefplexTn'g one for the doctors
who disagreed as to the nature of it, but
it now appears on the evidences of
surgery recently supplied that Dr. Schon
was correct in his diagnosis of it.

Trout are plentiful in the rivers and
streams and everybody with tackle is
practising the art that made Izaak, the
Walton, famous. A good crop of fishing
yarns is springing up, which, by the end
of the season will, no doubt, include
some "whoppers." Some parties are
planning an excursion to a lake on the
headwaters of the Skagit where the fish
were so plentiful last year that the water
rose 6 feet on the arrival at night of one
school. Be that as it may there is good
sport in all the streams now.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 1907.
TO ATTAIN OLD AGE.
The great desire to be permitted
to roam the earth  to  an   advanced
age  is  common to the  great   majority of men and women, and it is
undoubtedly right that they should
cherish such a  desire.    Ever  since
the time of the  flood and probably
before, all kinds of ideas have been
advanced  tending  to  the  keeping
alive of ' the  vital   spark   in   the
human  frame   and   the world   has
been furnished with many examples
of ripe old ages.    Tbe question naturally arises what   is  essential to
longevity?
Alphonse Daudet, in one  ol  his
stories, has a  character, a very old
man, who is famous because be happens to be the oldest member of the
French Academy.    He   is   deluged
with letters asking him   as   to   his
habits, his diet, his hours  of sleep
and the like.    Hundreds of people
imagine that   if   they live   as   he
lived   they   would attain   his   longevity.    At first the letters   annoy
the old gentleman, but in   the end
they furnish him with inexhaustible
amusement.    To every correspondent he gives a   different  reply.    In
one letter he describes himself as a
lifelong vegetarian;   in   another  he
professes to have  eaten, for  years,
nothing but meat;   to   a   third correspondent he gravely declares that
for fiftv years he has lived on a diet
of raw carrots and milk.
The Toronto World, referring to
this vexed question of what to  eat
and what no to, says:   Some people
believe that to live long you  mnst
eat rye, oat or graham   bread, anything but white.    Others say it   is
not what you eat, but  how you eat
it.    They cite   Mr.   Gladstone   as
counting the number of chews   he
gave every mouthful of food before
he swallowed it.    But  now  comes
Dr. Wiley, the chief of pure food
experts of the United States, who
declares it to be a disgrace for anyone to die except for  old  age, and
he recommends us to bolt our food.
"All flesh-eating animals do so," he
says.     In   the   matter   of   eating,
drinking, sleeping, bathing and exercise we find no end of schools and
prescriptions.   If anything is wrong
with you, nature will signal  by inflicting pain.    Your stomach knows
what is good  for  you.    It   is   the
best   counsellor. Meanwhile   a
cheerful  disposition will  predigest
It would be safe to say, says the
Phoenix Pioneer, that there is
steady employment to-day for from
400 to 500 more men in the mines
and smelters of the Boundary at
the best of wages paid in any part
of Canada or the west for similar
work.

It is deserving  of note, says  an
exchange, that many of the schools
in Great Britain held  Empire  Day
ceremonies, when  the proceedings
were much  the   same   as   similiar
celebrations in    Canada.     Stirring
speeches were delivered, in  most of
which  full   justice  was  done   the
Great Britain "over the seas," and
the doings of  the Colonial  Conference brought into prominence. Empire Day is of Canadian birth and it
is gratifying to see that its  usefulness is  already so  generally recog:
nized.

Mr. James Woods,   president  of
the Ottawa Board of Trade, in   his
inaugural address to the Board, the
other day, says that the complaints
that British  investors   do   not   appreciate   Canadian   enterprises   are
totally unfounded.    England holds
Dominion   Provincial   Government
and municipal bonds and   securities
to the value  of   $350,000,000 and
over $700,000,000 in  securities, of
railways, banks, and  other  undertakings, besides millions invested in
private  enterprises   and  in   mortgages.    In order to do Cauada justice and to place the true facts   before English capitalists, Mr. Woods
suggests    that     tbe     Government
should establish, in connection with
the High Commissioner's office  in
London,    an    information    bureau
where prospective   investors   might
secure   authentic   information   regarding Canadian enterprises. This
would tend to prevent the  flotation
ot wild-cat  schemes which injured
the country.
Notice is hereby given that sixty days
after date I intend to apply to the Hon.
Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works
to purchase 80 acres of pasture land, situate in the Nicola division of Yale district
and described as follows: Commencing
atthe S. W. corner of lot 1194. thence
south 40 chains; east 20 chains; north 40
chains; west 20 chains, to point of commencement.

Shoop,  Racine,  Wis.    Troubles   of  the
stomach, heart  or kidneys,  are   merely
symptoms of  a   deeper   ailment.    Dont
make the common error of treating symptoms only.    Symptom treatment is treating the result of your ailment  and   not
the cause.     Weak   stomach  nerves—the
inside nerves—means stomach weakness,
always.    And the heart and  kidneys  as
well, have   their   controlling   or   inside
nerves.    Weaken these  nerves and  you
inevitably have weak vital organs.   Here
is where  Dr.   Shoop's   Restorative   has
made its fame.    No   other   remedy ever
claims to treat the "inside nerves."   Also
for bloating, biliousness,   bad  breath   or
complexion, use Dr. Shoop's Restorative.

In  a  recent   issue of  the Vancouvi r
Province appears the following  despatch
under date of Tacoma:    "A great   many
inquiries   have   been  coming   into   the
Great Northern offices of late requesting
information as to transportation facilities
to Keremeos, B. C ,   where   settlers   are
