TBE BOARD OF TRADE
Interesting and Profitable Session—Preferential Tariff
is Endorsed.
Committee   Appointed   to Assist
Celebration 1st July—Slate
Creek Eoad.
in
At the regular monthly meeting of the
Princeton board of trade on last Thursday night there was considerable business transacted and an interesting session
held, the following members being in
attendance : Wynne, Jackson, Summers,
Murdoch, Waterman, Campbell, Swanson, Huston, McCoskery, Hall, Bell,
Godsoe and Wright. Iu the absence of
President Kennedy Vice-President Jackson toOK thcchair.
After routine -communications were
read from the Red River Valley Brick
Co. of Grand Forks, N.D., re the possibilities and resources for establishing the
brickmaking industry here ; secretary to
reply favorably. From Telephone Superintendent Stevens in reply to recommendations from the board re better accommodation for privacy in the telephone office here. From J. Parker, Chicago, asking information as to the possibility and probability of road connection being made with the Slate creek,
Wash., district; secretary- to reply, pointing out the need of transportation with
Princeton which is the great coal, ore
and commercial hub of the Similkameen. From L. C. Wynne, secretary of
the board, tendering his resignation, due
to expected absence. Mr. Wynne consented to act until his departure, the
vacancy to be filled next session of the
board.
Discussion of the central telephone
problem elicited the information that the
member for Yale-Cariboo, for the efficiency and convenience of the public was
in favor of consolidating or giving to
any one person who would creditably
fill the positions, those of postmaster,
exciseman and telephone agent. On
motion the matter was referred to the
executive committee.
A. E. Jackson, manager of the bank of
Commerce, was elected to the position of
treasurer to the board, made vacant by
removal of H. T. Newmarch to Penticton.
Printing of certain stationery for board
was ordered.
Resolved—That the Princeton board of
trade is in accord with the movement
aiming at imperial unity through a preferential tariff throughout the British
dominions, thus binding the Empire together with the bond of commerce as
opposed to the high protective tariff walls
erected   by  rival  nations: That Canada
having failed to acquire reciprocal trade
relations, as formerly, with the United
States, it is her duty to encourage by
bounty or bonus the establishment of
manufacturing industries for the product
of which we are now dependent on foreign countries: That the government
shonld subsidize the home produced literary, scientific, techuical and educational
journals or magazines, nearly all of which
is now imported : That Canadian ports
only be used for import and export with
Great Britain and the colonies: That
legislation requiring all benevolent societies, fraternal orders, unions and all
organizations operating in Canada to
establish headquarters in this country/
be enacted by the house of commons.
Resolution carried unanimously.
Permission was granted to bring before the board the matter of celebrating
Dominion Day in a manner worthy of
the occasion. It was agreed on mature
deliberation that the board would lend
its prestige and goodwill besides give of
its material bounty and assist toward
the success of the occasion.. A celebration committee composed of Messrs.
Swanson, Godsoe, McCoskery and Summers.
Location of the proposed new school
house was consideied, the prevalent
opinion being that the present site would
do now, although it was pointed out that
the location would soon have to be
changed as the business quarter and
railroad encroached upon and surrounded the school grounds.
Board adjourned.
LAW ON GRUBSTAKE.
The grubstake, one of the most honored of institutions, has met a reversal in
an American court decision. Ever since
1849 the system of grubstaking by prospectors for the privilege of sharing in
whateyer he finds had been in vogue,
and more than one great fortune has
come to homestayers who have outfitted
mine-hunters. In the case just decided
a miner, John Gates, who, on a grubstake
Of $1,000, found a fortune of $750,000, has
won a verdict declaring that the grub-
staker cannot collect.
The United States Court of Appeals
rendered the decision sustaining the District Court of Alaska in a suit brought
against him by Isaac C. Marks of San
Francisco. The action was instituted to
recover #150,000 on agreement made by
Marks and Gates in Seattle on April 27,
1902. The agreement was that in consideration of #1,000 paid by Marks to
Gates the latter was to transfer to the
former 20 per cent, of all property which
should be acquired either by location,
purchase or otherwise in Alaska by said
Gates.
SETTLERS COMPLAIN
Suffer Hardship for  Want of
Road to Haul Produce
and Implements.
Culpable. Neglect of Struggling Settlers—Surplus  Revenue Yet
"No Money."
/ X\ Johnson is a struggling and hard-
jworking settler on Five-Mile, who with
others has a well grounded grievance
for the wilful and apparently studied
neglect of that section by the government at Victoria and the "member for
Hedley." There is only a trail up the
Five-Mile, over which Mr Johnson and
his co-settlers have had to pack on horses
backs harrows, ploughs and other implements, besides food and last, but by no
means least, sick women and children.
The cost of the road asked for would not
be a fleabite compared with the enormous and disproportionate outlay ($17,-
000) on the Hedley-Nickel Plate read
which ends in the air. For a few hundred dollars the Five-Mile settlers could
be made happy and relieved of intolerable burdens which may be likened to'
those of Egyptian bondage. If there be
a remaining modicum of shame or spirit
in the government or its advisers the
petitions of the commnnity as well as the
personal supplications of. the settlers will
be answered-with an adequate appropriation. The government press shout about
a surplus of revenue ; let them advocate
the expenditure of a portion of it for the
Five-Mile settlers and In Princeton where
the road to Copper mountain is a disgrace and condemned by all using it.
George Goldsborough, road foreman,
took a gang of men over the Hope trail
this week for the purpose of putting the
trail in repair.
LOGGING CAMPS CLOSE.
At a meeting of the B. C. Loggers' Association in Vancouver last week it was
decided to close down the logging camps
indefinitely, the shutdown to take effect
on June 29. It will effect sixty-nine
camps having a total output of 33.250,000
feet per month. This action is taken on
account ofthe small demand, high wages
and increased cost of supplies. It will
throw out of employment 2,000 men receiving salaries aggregating from #175.-
000 to #200,000 per month. The camps
will start again whenever the market
warrants it.
DOMINION DAY CELEBEATION.
July ist, Canada's national holiday will
be celebrated in Princeton on a grand
scale this year, as will be seen by the
special advertisement in ■ this issue. A
meeting was held on Saturday evening
of those interested in holding a celebration here on that day and it was decided
to carry the idea into effect. Committees
were appointed to look after the different
sports and the ball to be held in the
evening.
The collecting committee report meeting with great success and confidently
expect to have five hundred dollars or
more to distribute in prize money. A
purse of #125 has been hung up for the
free-for-all horse race, which should attract the best horses in the valley. Other
good priz is are. also offered and a big
string of hoises is look for. Foot races,
jumping, etc., for both men and children
are included in the programme. The
baseball game between Princeton and
Keremeos should prove a big drawing
card in itself.
The prospects are bright for the best
celebration ever held in Princeton, and
that's saying a good deal.
LOCAL AND GENEEAL.
Geo. Wardle returned from Nicola on
Monday, where he went to attend the
funeral of Mrs. Howarth.
Ralph Murdoch, one of the progressive
scholars of Princeton public school, has
gone to Penticton to attend the high
school exam., which takes place this
week.
Rev. Dr. Herdman, Presbyterian superintendent of missions, is expected in
Princeton next week, his arrival in Hedley being fixed for Saturday where he
will remain over Sunday. Rev. D. J.
Macdonald will meet him and confer
upon the future of his field. Dr. Herd-
man will be heard in Princeton in all
likelihood but of the time and subject
later announcement will be made. No
service will be held in Princeton next
Sunday,
Reports from Champion creek continue
to be most favorable as to the richness of
that mineral section. Messrs Bennett,
Coutenay, McDougall and Brittain are
satisfied that a big mining camp will
result from a thorough development of
their properties and exploration ofthe
Champion creek district.   MS
O. Rain is in town from Bear creek
where he has been working on the mining property owned by the Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. of the
Boundary. A lot of development work
has been done, including a 300 foot tunnel all in ore.
The Princeton Hotel, the pioneer house
of Princeton, has an advertisement on
the third page, to which attention is
drawn. Also the Hotel Tulameen, just
open, has a notice on page four. This
hotel is one ofthe largest in the Similkameen valley and will undoubtedly receive its share ot public patronage.
Lucky Todd was in town this week
seeing the sights and renewing old acquaintances. He reports having struck
it rich on his claim adjoining the Red
Eagle on Connelley mountain, no less
than six feet of high grade copper pre
having been bumped up against.

LAURIER COMMENDED.
In dealing with the attitude of
the majority of Tory papers in trying to belittle Canada's Premier in
his action at the recent Imperial
Conference, the Winnipeg Free
Press pertinently asks: "Where
was the political horse-sense of the
opposition newspapers when they
decided upon their campaign of be-
littlement of Sir Wilfrid as Canada's
representative in the Imperial Conference? They could have done
nothing which would so completely
convict them in the eves of the public of pettiness and meanness of
spirit. Sir Wilfrid was a national,
not a party, representative at the
conference, and throughout tbe
whole conference he did nothing
that did not reflect credit and distinction upon the country which
sent him there. Though not a
matter of any moment, it is never
theless regrettable that certain
newspapers in Canada should have
considered the time and occasion
suitable for making a display of
their embittered feelings towards
Sir Wilfrid."
. The Toronto World, a strong
Conservative paper, however, stands
out as an exception and publishes a
leading article in commendation of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's action, which
is worthy of note. It is a source of
satisfaction to know that at least
one Tory paper has the courage to
speak the truth without fear from
the hand that holds the lash. It is
to be regretted there are so few papers of this stamp to be found in
the ranks.
The World  says:     "Now   that
the Imperial Conference is   of   the
past and the dust of controversy has
had time to  settle, tbe   wisdom   of
the course pursued by the Canadian
Premier becomes   more  clearly apparent.    No one  can   say that  the
circumstances under which   it  convened were altogether favorable so
far at least as regards the matter of
an  inter-imperial preference.    Discussion of this subject could not be
avoided,   even     though     the    action     of     the     British     Government had been   plainly disclosed in
advance and the problem presented
to the representatives  of   the   new
Britains was to place themselves on
record that while reaffirming  their
desire for a preferential  trade  system they could not be charged with
interference in the domestic politics
of the United Kingdom. The position was thus a delicate one, and
any error in judgment might have
imperilled the success of the conference and provoked bitter recriminations.
"That so deplorable an issue was
averted and the desired end attained with the least possible
amount of friction must justly be
placed to the credit of Sir Wilfrid
L/aurler. At the conference he
took unquestionably the leading
place and his reputation as an imperial statesman of the first rank
has been correspondingly enhanced.
What added greath' to the weight
of influence he exerted is the fact
that his line of policy was not only
in entire accordance with the vast
majority of the people of Canada,
but with the general and particular
interests ot the empire aud the imperial states.
"From tbe cabled summary of
the interviews had with Sir Wilfrid
I^aurier by the Paris correspondents
of the London Standard and London Daily Express, it appears that
the Canadian Premier is giving evu
dence of his hope that Britain will
yet fall into line with the other
British states that favor the principle of preferential trade. In. the
negotiation of trade treaties it is
proposed to include only Britain's
least dangerous competitors, thus as
far as possible maintaining the value
ofthe preference granted by Canada
to British imports. This policy has
been prompted by his belief that
Britain will ultimateiy concur in a
preferential trade arrangement, and
he is unwilling to incur any obligations which may prevent the consummation of the commercial union
of the empire. Here again Sir
Wilfrid Laurier is displaying that
same sane imperialfsm which characterized his attitude during the
session of the conference. The
Standard's Paris correspondent had
reason to acknowledge the Canadian
Premier's confidence in the future
of his. country and his loyalty to the
empire."

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—mean* stomach weakness,
always.    And the heart and  kidneys  as
well, have   their   controlling   or   inside
nerves.    Weaken these  nerves and  3*ou
inevitably have weak vital organs.   Here
is where   Dr.   Shoop's   Restorative   has
