Gus Hewat left last week for London,
Eng., where he is likely to enter the

A. Murchie, photographer, has gone to
Penticton on a business visit, returning
here later to erect a studio. Hisr views
are among the finest to be procured, his
work having found much acceptance with
the local government in their illustrated
publications. When Mr. . Murchie has
completed a tour of the Similkameen he
.--will have enough views to make a superb
album of the district and which would
be a striking illustrated advertisement.
* Angus Stewart of the Hedley Lumber
Co., was in town Tuesday.
Blackbirds are the earliest of our feathered friends to put in an appearance
this winter. The balminess of spring, if
continued a few more days, will, no
doubt, cause the return of robin, bluejay,
crow and chickadee, the goose and the
duck following a little later. A few
stanzas from the spring poet will now be
in order.
'Doc" Bouchier came up from Penticton last Sunday where he was chef for
W. A. McLean on his big irrigation con-
tract. Doc had the misfortune to slash
his fingers with a meat knife and will
have an enforced rest for a few weeks at
hi? home at Ashnola.
The main trunk road js in very bad
condition, caused by recent thaws and
heavy rains. Boulder and mudslides
have in many places filled tip the inside
track until there is danger of upsetting.
The road superintendent is invariably
watchful and his attention having been
directed to the matter of clearing and
repairing no doubt it will be done without further complaint from teamsters or
travellers.
HEDLEY'S RICH MINE.
It is reported on good authority that
an offer of $5 000,000 has been made and
refused for the Nickel Plate mine at
Hedley. M. K. Rodgers, the former
'manager and expert of the Daly Reduc
tion Co., who developed and proved the
worth of the Nickel Plate, is at the head
of the syndicate making the propositidh>;
Mr. Rodgers is now in New York and
will shortly return to Hedley to look
after his interests, among which is the
land acquired from the Indians for
smelter purposes and which is held in his
own name for those purposes. It is not
improbable that Mr. Rodgers may, if the
Nickel Plate deal fails^-organize a power
ful mining and smelting company. There
are other Nickel Plates and no one is
more fully aware of the fa^ than Mr.
Rodgers.
THE PIRE BRIGADE.
At the meeting of the fire brigade last
Monday night C Summers was elected
deputy chief and committees appointed
to procure hook and ladder cart and fire
alarm location, also storage accommodation. Secretary Cowan was instructed
to invite the co-operation of the board of
trade in procuring a donation from the
government for the purchase of fire
fighting equipment. The contribution
list toward the purchasing "fund is in the
hands of secretary-treasurer Cowan who
will be pleased to accept further cash
subscriptions. It need scarcely be urged
that everyone having" interests here
should make a cash gift to the fund, for
all will profit either directly or indirectly
by a fire brigade, so send along the cash
without further delav.
CHEAP SMELTING POWER.
The B.C. Copper Co. will increase the
smelter capacity at Greenwood to 2060
tons daily by September if the electric
power companies will supply the necessary "juice." It will jj entail a cost of
$750,000 to increase the smelter capacity
that extent. At present the B C. is treating about 700 tons per day, which,
owing to the lack of cheap power, cannot be increased. In the Boundary the
one great drawback to smelting has been
shortage of water and cheap fuel. To
operate by water or electricity is a third
cheaper than by steam and in these respects the district about Princeton cannot be excelled. When once harnessed
the falls in the Similkameen river could
supply almost unlimited power, besides
which there is abundance of cheap coal.
What more could be desired for smelter
locations and the mineral a certainty ?
OBITUARIES.
The wife of the Hon. Edgar Dewdney
died recently in Victoria after a long
illness. Deceased was a sister of Mrs.
Allison of this town.
J. H. Coulthard, an oldtime and respected rancher of Keremeos died in
Victoria recently as the result of a surgical operation.
The death of the wife of Dr. McEwen-
of Hedley from consumption occurred
recently at her home there. Deceased
was very highly esteemed by all who
knew her and sincere sympathy is expressed for the husband in his sad bereavement.   -
SOME USEFUL HINTS
Stock Companies Analyzed and

Wm. Shown Up.
Mining Pakirs  and Their Methods
Exposed—Similkameen Rich in
Mineral Resources.
Editor Star—Sir:-An era of great
confidence is setting in towards the-min-
ing interests and all other industries in
the great •'financial centers of the east.
The reasons are plain to those who'keep
pace with the trend of events—a number
of communications to the writer adds
strength to this statement. Two great
competing lines of railroad struggling
to reach the Pacific coast, passing through
the heart of the Similtcameen, one of the
richest districts in mineral and other
natural resources, will still further force
a recognition of-these great factors upon
the notice of the outside world. This
stimulus will be intensified by an ideal
climate, extensive bodies of timber and
coal measures, vast water power that can
be utilized on all sides, a soil of such
wonderful fertility that its varied produc
tive capacity will soon be the marvel of
the Northwest.
As to the great mining industrv its permanency is now established at many
points. The fever of a few years ago.has
passed with the depression that followed
and is replaced by intelligent exploration productive of splendid results.
Great contiguous ore bodies that were
erroneously supposed to be confined to
the surface have been exposed at approximately the same time below the depth
of a 1000 and 1200 feet in two of the Ross-
land mines, a number in and around Slo-
can, one at Ymir, with the Granby paying big regular dividends on a low grade
ore that will last for many years. The
basis for the same grand results exist at
a number of points within the confines
of the Yale district. The fact that ore
bodies have a general tendency to extend to great depths is the most powerful advertisement that a district can possibly have and invites .investment of
capital on a large scale.
With all their faults stock companies
have produced those good results. But
the various schemes of fake manipulators and their companies, founded on the
credulity of the masses, by cheap nonassessable stock, sold to develop a hole
in the wash or the air, reveal some of the
most remarkable and singular phases of
human nature ever recorded in the book
of life. Nothing has the confidence and
assurance of ignorance so much as when
it is based upon luck. This makes the
stock business the paradise of the fakir".
He appeals to the eye and the imagination ; reason  is  not supposed to be pres
ent. Yet no better method was ever devised to enable poor or rich to develop
an industry than a well managed stock
company if all the forces composing it
are united and in earnest and will see
that the funds received for the sale of
stock are honestly and intelligently applied. The reverse of this is where the
abuse and sorrow come in. Blind faith
may be a desirable factor in religious
guidance but not for the directors of a
mine. There must be a vigilant application of gray matter all the time and ore
in sight. Many of the best mines in the
United States and some of the great cooperative industries of the world have
been developed by poor stockholders.
The Hercules mine at Wallace, Idaho,
-was developed into one of the greatest
lead mines of the district by a few miners a dairyman, railroad men and a school
teacher. The pioneers of the famous
Coolgarlie district were tailors, miners
and carpenters "and are all millionaires
with only $1,500 to begin with.
There are two forms of stock known as"
assessable and nonassessable. Somehow
the unitiated have got it into their heads
that assessable stock is a freeze out game
in favor of the man who happens to have
more faith and money than the other
fellows Now the same result can be
brought about under one form as well as
the other, with many advantages in favor
of assessable stock. -
Assessable stock is simply founded'
upon the principle that any person who
is willing to receive the profits that accrue
from a mine or other enterprise should
be willing to bear a proportionate share
of all legitimate outlay for improvements
necessary to the ultimate success of the
business. But most people are not satisfied with this plan. They want all the
profits with risk or burden. There may
be one or two men in an assessable corrf-
pany with means. Dead work is to be
done on a mine to make it a success.
The treasury stock is exhausted, the
holders of small or no means are assessed
in lieu of money they put up a certain
amount of stock. They repeat this until
it is all gone. The mine is a failure.
They lose only their stock, while the
man of means loses his money. In this
case the man of faith, money and pluck is
froze out. We will assume that the poor
shareholder has 5,000 shares left and a
good mine is developed. Those few
shares are worth a safe full of nonassessable stock in a poorly developed
mine with the stock scattered from
Maine to Florida. Assessable stock carries responsibility with it. Good business men of means will buy it sooner for
this reason. Stockholders who are being
assessed will watch the management of a
mine with far deeper interest and there
is less chance of extravagance. Nonassessable stock can be had by the ton in
any city. The stock is usually scattered. §
There is squabble, legal  entanglements,.

LABOR'S RIGHTFUL PLACE.
After centuries of enforced seclusion and   retirement  into  the back
seats of the British   house of commons   Labor  has  come to her own
and   now occupies  a  seat  on  the
foremost  row   in   the  person  of a
mechanical    engineer,    the   Right
Hon.  John   Burns.    He  is  one of
about thirty   Labor  members who
have been returned  to the house of
commons in the recent general elec-j
tions.    He   visited British Colum-'
bia last  fall  and gave out to interviewers   that   he  was  in  favor of
radical changes being  made in the
form  of Britain's  government and
that, in his  opinion,   the time was
not  far  in   the  future  when mon-
archial  rule   would   give  place to
that  of democracy.    He  does not
believe in   hereditary rulers, nor in
a titled legislative  institution, such
as the house of lords, nor in a privileged class—all these must go.    On
this side of the Atlantic many sympathizers  will   be  found  with the
movement  to   give  Labor its  full
share  of responsibility in the government  of the  country   and thus
level up the inequalities  that have
so long existed between   the  titled
aristocracy and the " lower" classes.
The  nobility   of  a  country  originated in  ancient  tribal  and feudal
conditions which have no cause for
perpetuation   into  this enlightened
age  and  the  man  or party which
aims to remove these relics of barbarism is the friend of humanity in
general.    If John  Burns  and  his
followers can^ remove  the house of
lords  the  last obstacle to constitutional reform will have disappeared
and  triumphant    democracy    will
break away from those old customs
and    hereditary    privileges  which
tend to enrich a few at the expense
of the  many.    A social revolution
no less important than that of government will be effected by lopping
off the power of the lords.    Where
now are  found the  poor and obse
quious  middle classes, apeing  and
salaaming    the   titled  aristocracy,
there will be  but one class of the
true   nobility,   the   passport   into
which  will consist of good character.    The  people of the Similka?
meen will watch with great interest
the efforts of John  Burns and his |
ADVERTISE THE DISTRICT.
If advertising has made fortunes
for business men, and they admit it
themselves, there is no valid reason
why a town should not benefit similarly from that cause.    Other towns
have  tried  and proved the efficacy
of advertising and  there ought to
be  no   hesitancy   on   the part of
Princeton  in  making  an effort to
secure  a share  of the capital and
immigration   that is  flowing westward in   increasing   volume   each
succeeding    year.     No   town  has
ever become populous and prosperous   without   hustling   to  acquire
them, just as an  individual or firm
has  to  hustle for business.     The
person who sits idly  down waiting
for opportunities or business to come
his way   will  soon  find'himself in
the rear of the procession.    Princeton   must   hustle.     The   best descriptive   literature   obtainable   of
this  section  showing  the  mineral
resources  and    advantages  should
be sent to every mine investor and
capitalist whose address can be procured and then general distribution
made  in    every   city.     Initiation
should  be extended to representatives of the press to come and visit
this section   for  the purpose of fur-'
nisbing readers  with the latest information of this  new-and important district.
Residents    of   Princeton  should
be particularly  attentive to strangers   in   affording them facilities for
information and to never fail in impressing them   with  the  great advantages  of coal  and  lode mining
in making this  a  smelting  center.
Compare  it  with  other towns and
show wherein   its  supremacy lies.
Every  citizen  of Princeton should
boost the town by word   and deed.
Home industries  and  stores ought
always  to  be patronized in preference  to  sending   outside.    Acting
upon  these  hints no amount of rivalry  or jealousy  can   injuriously
affect   Princeton     in     its   onward
march.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
SOME USEFUL HINTS.
[Concluded from page j.]
no quorum to do business, the property
is dead, it cannot be leased and there are
a lot of poor stockholders scattered over
the country waiting to get something for
nothing.
A  mine  requires additional  expenditure of funds to put it on a paying basis.
The man of limited   means  will not and
cannot  be  compelled  to  contribute his
share.   The  few   who  have  money and
courage become  tired of the burden and
give up.    No  one  is interested.    Little
of the money has been put into the mine
but likely squandered.    The mine cannot
be sold  or leased.    Very  likely  a good
prospect  is strangled  or it was no prospect to begin with.    No  one is responsible.    The  mine becomes a dead issue.
Everybody  is  froze out without money
enough  in  the  treasury  to make a post
mortem  examination.     And  yet people
will buy a stock  certificate because they
have  "hunch"_ or   some   other  mental
affliction  to  the  extent of thousands of
dollars who would not buy a grub  stake
for a man in a good prospect and become
an actual  owner—such  is life.    Remember that assessable stock appeals to pluck,
intelligence,  enterprise,  and  is usually
successful ; and that non assessable stock
appeals to blind faith,  ignorance, imagination  and  gullibility.     It  ''holds  the

When Bilkins was away from, home on
a long' business trip he got a letter from
his wife that still puzzles him. It ended
'thus: 'Baby is well, and lots brighter
than he used- to be. Hoping you are the
same, I remain your loving wife."
Dr. Kallowmell (after a thorough examination)—There is nothing at all the
matter with you. All you need is a little
rest.    Caller—Thank you.    Well, I must
be     Dr. Kallowmell—But  thanks,,
'my'good man, will not pay my office
rent. Caller—Maybe not, but that's all I
"got for overhauling your watch the other
day and finding that all it needed was
winding.
After a'wordy argument in which neither scored, two Irishmen decided to
fight it out. It was agreed that when
either said "I've enough," the fight
should cease. Afte. they had been at it
about ten minutes one of them fell, and
immediately yelled "Enough ! I've
enough!" But his opponent kept on
pounding him until a man who was
watching them said: "Why don't you
let-hirnup? He says he's got enough-."
"I kiuw he says so," said the victor, between punches, "but he's such a liar you
can't believe a word he says.
"Why do you-teach your children to
recite and sing ?" "Well," answered the
practical woman. "thereJias to be some
way of starting people ■ who come to see
you and forget when it's time to go
home."
