Warns Public not   to   Take   Notice
of Rumors—Hampered  by Unforeseen Circumstances. . #$*$fsj
To be or not to be. that's the.question '■■
Whether we are to have, railway construction to Princeton this yeh't~:'::bri
whether we shall have to ealuiiy-,«il
down'and wait for another year;' fo'xyibe
long promised and long defen-dfl; "b'less '
ings of rail way transportation, is -.tiie
problem that makes men grow weia£ji
and clogs the wbeelsof p'ro'g ess. If'.JJSw
were' to believe half the coTjfiicti-.n'gJsuu^
ors, rumors that are more numeroirsjaSag-
the flowers in May, a mixup would' in
all probability take place, j fs ;•'
Chief Engineer Hogeland, while -in
Seattle recently, is reported as saying!
that his com Dan y had no intention, what
ever of delaying jjrie work on 'the V.. V..
& E. . Del-ays', tie said had occurred and
were likely to occur, as the result,of un
foreseen difficulties, but notwithstanding
these it was the intention of his company
to push on the work as fast as circumstances would, permit, and. that the public
would do well to pay no attention to anv
rumors to the contrary. •'.-  '.       •'
This statement coming as'a't- does from
one in authority, is good nefo ,jtpv. the
people in the Similkameen, ivtfS." have
been anxiously watching the''"progress
made on this road ' Slow headway has
certainly been made, but when it is t iken
into consideration that delays have occurred that were entirely beyond the
company's control, as scarcity of labor,
lack of material, and want of fuel owing
to the coal miners' strikes, it will be
seen that all possible progress has been
. made.
The track reached the Armstrong
bridge Saturday night and on Monday
the piledriver got to work driving piles
for the approach. Barring accidents the
bridge should be completed in three or
four weeks, and Keremeos reached by
June 15. Whether construction will
then be proceeded with to Princeton re
inains to be seen, but there is no good
reason as yet advanced why it will not.
In the meantime let us believe it will.
SALE OF COAL LANDS.
Since January 4th of the- present year
coal lands, chiefly in the province of Alberta, aggregating too,000 acres, have
been disposed of by the Dominion Gov-
r ernment. The number of parcels sold
^ has been 327, the price in each case being
$7 an acre. The majority of parcels consist of 320 acres although there are some
of smaller dimensions.

OUR CANADIAN PREMIER.
THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
THE    SIMILKAMEEN   ST A K
May 8, 1907
The following article, taken from
the Rossland Miner, a Conservative
paper, is worthy of reproduction,
voicing as it does the opinion of a
political opponent of Canada's Premier, Sir Wilfrid L,aurier. The
Miner's glowing tribute (curtailed
somewhat for want of space) will
meet with the approval of every
one, be he friend or foe, politically,
of Canada's first citizen :
Canadians have reason to be
proud of the Hon. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. It would be an honor to
any country to have such a man.
The subjects of this self-governing
British dependency feel a deep pride
in seeing one of their fellow citizens,
of French extraction, display such
conspicuous ability, aud through
his talents attain to one of the
highest positions in the gift of the
British crown.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier undoubttdly
is the most striking and forcible
man in public life in Canada today.
He is a man whose reputation,
although he has been for many
years connected with public affairs,
is unsullied. He unquestionably,
too, is a loyal Canadian, loyal to
the flag and loyal to the country.
"" Though he loves the land he lives
in now,
He ever bears in heart and brow
That where his fathers died."
And all honor to him that reverences the land   of his  forefathers,
good old France.
When in opposition he never!
acted as a mere partizan, and his
intervention in debate was all the
more influential, as it was always
understood that he advocated a
policy .because he believed it to be
right, and not because of any effect
it might have in bringing himself
and his colleagues into power.
As the leader of the House he
-stands head and shoulders above
his colleagues, pleasing in debate,
of scholarly diction, and with a fluency of English and beauty of ex
pression that might bring the blush
of shame to many an Englishman
At times displaying the highest
gifts of oratory he ever comtrands
a respectful hearing. He never
disdains to take the advice or profit
by tbe criticism of those in opposition.
When the word goes round that
Laurier is about to speak, the li-
Bgjfry and committee rooms are
soon deserted. Everybody wants
to hear him becaase they know that
he has something to say which will
be interesting, entertaining and instructive; or that he will give the
subject under discussion a new coloring.
There can be hardly a higher
tributsto a man's abilities as a debater than the fact that his rising
to address the House should create
such an effect. This command
over the House he has ever held
since he became one of its members,
and no one can hold a more honorable or desirable position.
* * * He has a striking personalty, an individuality that stamp
him as a person of high qualities.
The career of Laurier can be
held up to the ambitious young as
an example of what may be achieved by Canadian strength with ordinary advantages. Schools gave him
nothing; society gave him nothing;
but he had a firm resolution, a moral character and a good intelligence
and by these alone he has attained
distinction. But the mainspring of
his power and the truest evidence
of his greatness lies in the nobility
of his aims, in the fervor of his convictions, iu the stainless rectitude
which guides his action and which
has won for him the confidence of
all Canadians.
Although opposed to him politically we can not but pay this tribute to his sterling character and
abilities.
; Canadians, irrespective of politics,
will view his course in the present
conference of Colonial Premiers
with the greatest interest and pride,
and well they may, for he is unquestionably the ablest and most
conspicuous figure in that assembly
of able and gallent men.
