Grand Trunk  Pacific Enters
Into Competition with the
Canadian Pacific.
Will Get Share of Telegraph Business
as well as Command Fart of the
Trans-Canada Freight.
The Grand Trunk Pacific is going into
the telegraph business. An application
appears in the Canada Gazette for an act
of incorporation by the Grand Trunk
Pacific Telegraph company. Power is
also asked for wireless and cable busi
ness. Canada is gradually choking off
monopoly, the baneful effects of it hav
ing retarded the whole country and the
Similkameen in particular. The company or the individual who undertakes
to monopolize at once becomes an enemy
of the public weal.
Mr. Cranshaw's party of surveyors ran
a preliminary line along Vermilion ave
nue to a point beyond E. Waterman's
residence where the distance is least to
the Tulameen river. This route would
necessitate building of a tunnel a quarter
mile long through to the Tulameen, at
the same time it would obviate some
serious curves by the all-Tulameen line
just west of town. It is a question of
cost and utility which way will be chosen.
In any case it is hoped that Vermilion
avenue with its magnificent proportions
may be spared the unsightliness of an
ore or coal train bumping and puffiing
along its whole picturesque length. How
would Broadway, the Strand or the Rue
de la Paix look under such conditions ?
There is room enough along the Similka
pieen for the road and it is hoped tha'
President Hill, after reading these "few^
remarks" will ahift the Vermilion avenue
line a chain or two south.
' P. H. Burnham has been appointed
district freight and passenger agent 01
the Gsjjw| Northern railway, his duties
'• Vicnding over the Kootenays and from
->kane to Princeton. His headquarters
at Grand Forks.
#'-,yApplication will be made at the next
session of the Dominion parliament to
incorporate "The Vancouver & Northwestern Railway Co." to build a line of
railway from Vancouver eastward to Pitt
river, then to Harrison river, on to 141-
looet thence northerly to the 6oth degree
of latitude, with power to operate steamboats.
Hon. R. G. Tatlow has returned to Victoria after having with Premier McBride
interviewed Presidents Hill, Shaughnessy
and Morse. He says that 1906 will be
a big railway building year.
The annual general meeting of the
Boulder Mining Co. will be held at
Oshkosh, Wis., on the 2nd January, 1906,
for the purpose of electing officers and
receiving reports. This company owns
the Cousin Jack mine situated on Boulder
creek above Otter Flat. The Cousin
Jack has been experted .and developed
to such an extent as to prove its worthi
ness for the installation of a large operating plant. This will be decided at the
meeting next Tuesday. A large number
of stockholders here will be pleased to
learn that expert reports of the mine are
favorable and that an average assay of
$17.50 in gold has been obtained.
Angus Lamont was a passenger on
Thursday's stage, bound for Ontario,
going by way of Rossland. He goes to
his native home at Eramosa, near Guelph,
which he left some 44 years ago and will
also visit relatives at Woodstock. Mr.
Lamont is one of the pioneers of British
Columbia and was one of a hardy band
of goldhunters who tramped into Cariboo
during the first big stampede, packing
blankets and grub on their backs for
over 200 miles and depending largely for
meat by their unerring aim with the
rifle. He will spend the winter amid
the scenes of his youth returning to
Princeton where he hopes to enjoy the
remaining years of his natural life. Mr.
Lamont has sold his ranch to Louis W.
Hill, vice president of the Great Northern Railway Co., the price paid being
over $n,ooo for 320 acres. Many friends
of Mr. Lamont wished him goodbye and
a happy New Year as the sterling old
gentleman departed.
f D. M. French and J. Tway arrived in
'town last Saturday by stage from Nicola
and left on Monday for Copper and Kennedy mountains. Mr. French has mineral properties in thie district which he
is desirous of developing. For that purpose he has secured the services of an
expert and one who represents eastern
capital to inspect and report upon them.
Mr. Tway is pleased with the mineral
outlook of this section and • will carry
.away with him a lot of samples for assay.
While here, as a sort of side issue, he will
investigate chances in real estate with a
view to erecting a large building on it
for spring business which promises to be
brisk. Mr. Tway goes from here to
Granite creek to examine mineral and
other ground. He is very much im
pressed with the possibilities of this district and will return again when he has
more time at his disposal. Mr. French
expects to resume his citizenship of
Princeton after about four years absence,
his present hurried trip precluding a
visit with many old tilicums hereabouts.
He expects to return in two weeks.
Festivities of Christmastide Followed by Dearth of
Local News.
Regular Meeting of Board of Trade-
Princeton is Musical Town-
Write 19-0-6.
Court of revision opens at 11 o'clock
today in the court house.
Christmas Day was observed in an unusually quiet manner in Princeton. Invited guests at the hotels and in the
homes enjoyed bountiful repasts which
with the merry conversation, songs and
music made the day pass very happily.
Board of trade meeting will be held
next Thursday evening when a full attendance is desired as there is important
business on hand. It will be the first
regular meeting of 1906.
( The hospital ball at Hedley was a great
'financial and social success, the net receipts being estimated at close to $500.
Bob Cramer has received a letter from
Jack McFarlane in south eastern California in which he describes that country
in plain and emphatic terms. Evidently
Mr. McFarlane would readily exchange
the blistering heat, bad water and little

crisp ozone, sunny days, lashings of pure
water and grand prospects of the Similkameen. Come back Jack and settle
down !

Suffering from the horrors of delirium \
tremens and  laboring under strong de-   I
lusions of a fearful character John Swans-
borough attempted  suicide  last Sunday
night  by   cutting   his  throat.    He  was
alone at the time in the house belonging
to Geo. Aldous on his ranch and but for     \
his  timely  discovery  by J. O'Neil  an*&5£
subsequent attention of constable Hewat
who quickly  brought  Dr.  Schon to the
bedside, he must have perished from loss
of blood.    The temporarily insane  man
had slashed his throat with a razor leaving a gaping  flesh   wound and making-a
small  orifice   in   the  windpipe, luckily If
missing  the jugular, veins.    He was removed to the  lock-up and  there placed
under the vigilant eye of ''big Bill" Martin.   If no complicating illness sets in
the  patient  will  soon   recover and poor
Swansborough  will have another opportunity to reform, which his many friends
hope to see him do.
Gus Pouwels, or "Beige," as he is
known to his tillicums, is a generotrs^
hearted soul. He caught a coyote in a
bear trap he had set for a big black bear
which was lurking around his camp and
instead of despatching the thief then
and there as he now wishes he had done
and been made richer the bounty of
$2.50, he made an effort to make the
coyote- a prisoner. A second thought
struck him which spurred him on to more
determined effort to corral the brute.
He conceived the philanthropic idea of
sending it to his native Belgium there
to be presented to the big zoo at Brussels. Taking his lariat off his shoulder
he gave it a twirl and caught this 'dog of
the desert' by a hind foot. Then the
struggle began. The coyote was over
and under "Beige" fifty times, until
finally the brute was bound by its hind
legs and Gus started to drive him home.
He had only gone the length of the lariat
when the animal turned around and sat
down where it ought to and snapped the
tough lariat between its teeth, at the same
time putting its paw to its nose and giving a grin man fashion. It bounded out
of sight quickly leaving "Beige" uttering
some strong words in two languages.
Moral: Don't ever monkey with a coyote
but kill him. and kill him quick, and
claim the bounty before the carcase is

The immutable laws of time have
• riaye brought   the   year   1905  to
within   a   few   hours   of  its  close.
All the world stands'on the threshold of another year in gladsome expectancy for  the  advent  of Anno
Domini   1906.    Looking backward
through   the   vista  of days   at the
declining year great events stud thje
-time  with   the  frequency  of'milestones on life's broad highway. The
close of a great war with honorable
terms' of peace   had   scarcely been
recorded   when   the   embers   of   a
- bloody revolution were fanned into
the blaze of battle and murder, and
the throne of a once mighty line of
rhbnarchs   weakened  to a swift ap-
, proaching   deathfall.     The   end of
the year finds all the great nations
of earth armed to the teeth and still:
arming with  the   most destructive}
■weapons  of   war   which   inventive^
genius can  suggest, until? it seems1;
that peace   hangs by a hair-trigger-
which   the slightest diplomatic jar
may at any  time set off and cause
universal   war.      But   the victories
of peace in  the past year-outweigh
those   of   w,ar.     The   triumphs   of
literature,   commerce,   science   and
the    learned   professions   generally
have not been  equalled in any one
year so far in this young century.
If progress and enterprise have
marked the year 1905 to the outside
world, in the Similkameen there
have also been advancement and
persevering endeavor in the development of its vast natural resources. T,be., prominent mining
sections of■■ this district are now
undergoing -thorough test. Development has shown that immense
.ore bodies are common and in great
variety. Withal there is an abundance of cheap power and material
for the operation of mines or any
manufacturing "industry; Some
large mining transactions have been,
consummated during the year and,
others are in - progress. The interest manifested in the Similkameen
has had nnusual proof in the visita-
jtions of many mining men and,
experts during last summer. ..All
of these men were deeply impressed
sjvith the latent resources and vast
"Nullities of the district and all
^l the lack of transportation'
expected to return when the railway afforded more speedy means of
transit." "
Coal   lands  have  been in active
dfeiand all the  past year.'   Sellers
prefer holding  until  the railway is
ready to ship,   expecting  then  to
see a  sharp  advance in prices for
eligible'claims    situated   near' the
iirte of'>raiiway.    Nearly   all of the
Princeton eO.atfbas'in is now covered
with lease   or license and'therecan
belittle doubt of the ultimate suc-
cess, of   these   holdings   when   in
actual   production—the-first   class
quality'of the  coal ensures it.    At
present there is only-one coal'1 mine
in operation", its output   being confined to local Consumption  throug'h
the- inadequacy   of   transportation
facilities in ordinary wagons.
Agriculture is fully established a:s
a profitable and successful industry
in the Similkameen. Last season's
crop 'was the biggest on record.
When all the cultivable land is
brought into subjection of the
plough there will be enough and
to spare for a population of half a
million. In the southeastern pdrr
tion of the Similkameen^ riding
hundreds of acres of J desert land
only require water to make.them
most. productive of fruit and farm;
stuff: ,. Irrigation works on a large
scale-will be forthcoming as soon as'
the=population increases to a point
to demand the product of the now,
waste acres. The. quality ' of the
soil is unexcelled for mixed farming, its . adaptability for dairying
and grazing being especially good.
Farming aiid fruit .raising: in the
Similkameen are very much in their
infancy while cattle raising is as old
as the country is settled and is very
profitable.   ■■■' ■• M
The building of the telephone
line into the 'Similkameen in 1905
by the Dominion government and
extending its ramifications to the
Okanagan has proved to be a most
valuable convenience. - It has lessened the despairing isolation with
which this country has hitherto
been afflicted and facilitates business
wonderfully with all' parts of the
outside world..   ^$£3
Atotbis time last year the Star
predicted that railway construction
would be begun in ,the Similkameen "in 1905. That prediction has
been fully verified, the pessimists
and knockers to the contrary, notwithstanding. A year hence the
rails).;wi,li3nbe; .in. Princeton if they
can be manufactured fast enough.
1906 will be^ the most prosperous
and: progressive year yet attained
in tiriiSj: district, but the following
years will be the greatest in the
history of mining development.
That every person. interested in
the Similkameen may share in the
prosperity now advancing, is. the
earnest, -wish  of the  Star and bids
