The contractors were delayed in their
work by oVerdue^jfrfcight' wagons with
material, everything considered, however,
good rr°gress wagf ^made. Everything
about the buildjng seems substanti^jijdid'
of good workmanship. Outside conveniences have been provided and there
is accjbni.tnodatiqn for a much larger lium

To make the building thoroughly modern and up-to-date it should have a fur

and well, fence and that long talked cf
sidewalk. The cost of building and'out
houses isreported to be  a little less than

Rev. J T. Conn will deliver his fortnightly lecture, Friday evening next at
7:45, in the court house. The subject,
"Moses, the child, shepherd and leader,"
will be given in that attractive manner
peculiar to the lecturer The life story
of Moses  from  his  hidden cradle in the
Fast   Diminishing   Pioneers of  the
Golden Harvest of Long Ago.
Editor Star—Sir: In' your paper of
Otober 30th, yot^qeiitioned my visit to
old Cariboo and in d.oing so you made
^.Statetnent which caUs_for correction.
You made it read tffjj^out of the original
90 who invaded Cariboo in 1862 but three
remain, myself W. Hodgkinson, aird J.
Pinkerton. It should have rtad out of
the 90 who remained arid wintered in
Cariboo that>year we three are, as far as
is known,'the-only ones living today.
Of the 90 .who remained the first winter
in Cariboo seven were women—Mrs.
Winnard, Scotch Jennie,'afterwards"Jllrs.
Allan, the big hearted Scotch woman
who is so kindly remembered by the
earlv men of-Cariboo, Lizzie Roddie, who-
bulrushes  to  bis  grave  "beside  Nebo's
lonely mount," is full of romance, if one jniarried A. D. Mclaness, of Fort Alexan
may be allowed the expression in connection with a life so sacred. In all that
wonderful book, the Bible, no more in
teresting personage outside of the Divine
Man can be found than that of Moses.
The lecture is sure  to be  brimful  of in-
der. Mrs. Richard Cameron, Mrs. Ben-
Van Volkenburgh, a Mrs. Donnelly, Mrs.
John A. Cameron, wife of Cariboo Cameron, and a French woman. Mrs. John A.
Cameron died on October 23rd.-and Cameron and myself   took   the   body to Vic-
formation and no one who desires to be Lt°ria, the return trip taking 66 days, and
informed about the lawgiver and pro- for 14 days of which it was more than 40
phet, Moses, can afford to  miss  this op-   degrees below zero.
portunity of increasing the mental store.
No admission fee ; collection at the close.
The "Holy City" will be sung by the
rev. lecturer and instrumental selections
by the Symphony Club are promised.
TILL BURGLARIZED.
: On Sunday morning between 1 and ' 2
o'clock the Princeton Hotel was broken
into and the cash drawer behind the bar
■was broken down and the contents strewn
on the floor. Mr. James Wallace, the
proprietor, had occasion to beup^at that
hour and hearing a noise in he barroom
proceeded to investigate. Proceeding
around the corner of the building on to
Bridge street he: noticed a man coming
out of the hall door entrance and breaking into a run disappeared in the space
between' his house and the Great Northern Hotel. • TgilS )>$&&&$$:
- Instead of following the fugitive" Mr.
Wallace entered his hotel and found that
the bar door leading from the hall had
been forced opened and the" cash drawer
disturbed as stated. The thief whoever
he was was evidently disturbed in j his
work by hearing Mr. Wallace approaching and made his escape without getting
away with any money.
Mr. Wallace had a suspect arrested,
the case coming up for hearing on Monday before C. E Thomas and E. Waterman, J. P.'s. After hearing considerable
evidence, the court decided there was
not proof enough for a conviction and
dismissed the case.
M. Stickney and Miss M. Stickney,
nephew and niece of Mr. W. H. Hager-
man, arrived from Salem Oregon, last
week on a visit to their uncle here.
In 1862 the great rush to Cariboo took
4>lace, and through the toll bridges and.
way houses who tried to keep .count, it,
was,thought that fully 8,000 people went
to Cariboo that season. On September
26th n big snow storm took place, some
two and a half feet falling, and as a consequence about 500 pack animals perished. This scared the people and . they
left by the thousands. In three weeks'
time only 90 of us remained. But of the
thousands who went to Cariboo in 1862
and took active partin the mines I think
there must still be about 100 living. On
my.recent visit to Cariboo I met sixteen
of the real old timers in BarkervjH§,f flfl-;
on Williams' creek,"and some are sti|L-
quite active. Aridirew Kelley and Mrs-
Kelley I found running their hotel and
store just as they were 40 years ago, and
ai£..Still quite active. Rogers, ex-M.P.P.,
James Boycey Chas. House, Dave Edwards, and my brother John, J;be present
sheriff, are all hale and hearty and enjoying life. I also met seven Mdifjiands
on Keithley creek.'
When the first news of the discovery of
gold appeared in the papers I was customs house officer at Osooyos lake, and
the gold fever taking a strong hold on
me I resigned the position and started •
for Cariboo, reaching there in the fall of
1861. Sam Pearce. of Princeton, moved
into Cariboo during the slimmer of 1861.
It was on the 22nd of' Aug".,■ i862,':that
Jno. A. Cameron and myself staked the
well knpwn Cameron claim on Wiffiams
creek, from which about one million do'.-,
lars was taken.
Yours truly,
ROBT. STEVENSON.

NOTES AND  COMMENTS.
The recent bye-elections  in   On
tario move the Montreal Star to remark that there is  nothing in their
results to  indicate   any change   in
political sentiment.    The Star suggests the reason for the   failure   of
the Conservatives to tnajte headway
•when it says:    "The   Opposition—
contrary to   all   tradition—has   become the timid  party, substituting
mild suggestion for positive aggression and doing Its  official   'oppbs-
ina' in   a   half-hearted way.    It   is
breaking no new ground  with  any
implement more formidable than an
-erratic  golf   club, and   leaves   the
people  guessing   what   they would
gain if they were to work a political
revolution and left the Conservative
party to power."
A short time ago Mr. Fielding was
able to announce that the surplus of
the past fiscal year had more than
wiped out the debt increase of the
past ten years, and that Canada's
debt to-day is less than it was when
the Tories went out of office, while
in the meanwhile great public
works have been carried on, and
the percentage of duty on imports
have been lowered. Ask the Tory
orators to contrast Fielding and
Foster budgets.—Ex.
**a*m+m*m**m*m*
Judge Clement handed down a
decision the other day in Vancouver which if upheld means th t
each divorce granted in British Columbia in the last thirty-six years
has been illegal. If the courts of
appeal uphold his view of the law
jt is altogether probableiUhat special
.legislation will be passed by the
■Government at Victoria and O.tawa
jnaking divorces legal.
The Vancouver City Council recently passed a memorial to the
Provincial Legislature calling their
attention to the lack of systematic
knowledge of the resources of the
province and the consequent failuie
to attract white immigrants, closing
with the tecam.rrendat.ion that the
Government inaugurate a policy
that will induce a desirable white
immigration into this province and
afford the^-:on arrival such official
and accurate information of the opportunities our natural resources
offer as settlors in other provinces
obtain:
The net debt of Ca'nada in 1878
when the Cdriservatiye party took
office. \\'as $140,360,000.- In 1896,
when the deluge came, it was $258,-
497,000, or an average increase of
six and a half mi-llibn dollars a
year.7 In the ten years from 1896
to 1906 the debt increase-was ;,$8,-
445,000, the total debt being. $267,
042,000 in-1906
It is estimated, says an exchange,
that nine  hundred   million   dollars
has been paid by American parents
for titled husbands for their daughters.    This of   course   has   been   a
drain upon the   financial resources
of the United States and  the worst
of it is that a good deal  more   than
half of  this money seems   to   have
been  invested   very   poorly, as tl.e
records of the divorce courts show.
It is   hardly to   be   expected   that
when the most sacred   relation   in
life is made a matter of   barter and
sale that the transaction is likely to
be successful.    On the one side, tl.e
American girls sell tbeu.selves for a
title, and on the other   tl.e.-se   members of the   foieign nobility dispose
of an interest  in   their    names   for
hard cash.   . Tnese commercial mai-
riages are -certainly disgraceful and
it would not be   an   easy matter   tj
snow   how   much    better   moralli
these won;en are who take   part   in
tham than their outcast sisters. The
loss of  this ni.he   hundred   million
dollars is   nothing when  compared
with the loss of national self respect
these unions have brought,about.
