BASEBALL AT TULAMEEN.
The Princeton baseball team will
journey to Tulameen Cily on Sunrlav, the
28th, to try conclusions with the latter
team. The Tulameen players are anxious
to wipe out the defeat they suffered at
Princeton in the opening game of the
season on May 24th and have been practicing with that end in view for some
time. Reports from there say they are
in fine form and they can be depended
on to hand out the real dope. The local
team will leave earlv in the morning re
turning the same evening. The players
to represent Princeton will probably be:
Campbell", Macdonnell, Gibson. Young,
Rvder, Hughes, Kit Summers, Gordon,
L. Huston.
A number of supporters  of the  team
w'll take advantage of the trip   and   accompany the  bovs.    The Tulameen  fel
lows are real good sports aud   they can
be depended on to do the right thing.
Princeton Receiving Attention
Chief Officials  of Great Northern   Railway
Follow President Hill's Visit Here===
Good Results will Follow*
STORING  COAL UNDER WATER.
The idea of keeping fuel for fires in a
perpetually flooded condition is novel to
this country, although the practice is
familiar to the English. The best way
of storing coal is one ofthe serious problems that confront the modern manufacturer. The frequency of strikes in the
mining regions, the shor'age of cars on
the railways, labor difficulties of the
transportation companies, are among the
causes that contribute to the uncertainty
ofthe coal supply aud make it imperative
that a large stock of fuel should be kept
constantly on hand, in order that the
wheels of industry may not cease to turn
On the other hand, the danger of spontaneous combustion must be faced, and
carefully executed tests have shown that
when coal is exposed to the air nearly 30
per cent, of the heating value is lost
within the short space of six weeks. Experiments made by the British Admiralty
at Portsmouth, England, have shown
that if the coal is stored in bins that are
kept flooded both ofthe above objections
are obviate'd. In fact, in a period of storage lasting from six months to a year
only 2 per cent, of its heating value was
lost and the experiment was successful in
every other way.
This method is now being tried in this
country by the Hawthorne Works of the
Western Electric Company of Chicago—
one ofthe most up-to date of our industrial establishments. Two storage bins,
one of 4,000 and the other 10,000 tons capacity, both located below the normal
ground level, have been constructed.
Into these coal may be dumped from cars
and removed when it is needed by means
of a locomotive crane fitted with a grab
bucket.—Mining Reporter.
Summers and Wardle, butchers are
erecting a handsome two-storey stable at
the rear of their butcher shop on Bridge
street.
That the time is near at hand for important railway development in the Sim
ilkarnen would seem to be proved by the
attention that is now being given to this
part of the country by men high up in
the railway world Last week the Star
chronicled the visit of no less a personage
than the president of the Great Northern
Railway, Louis W. Hill, who was accompanied by Chief Engineer Hogeland.
Mr. Hill came, saw, and went away convinced that the Similkameen was possessed of wonderful resources that were lying
dormant for the want of railway facilities.
'His visit is bound to tend to the construction of his road through this valley at the
earliest possible moment. What Mr. Hill
saw in Princeton satisfied him that there
should be tonnage the moment he reached
this point. He stated that had it tiot
been for unforeseen obstacles, obstacles
that had crippled for a time operations,
his rcftd would have been in Princeton at
the present date. The work would be
proceeded with at the earliest possible
moment, said the president, and there is
encouragement in that.
This week witnesses another visit from
Great Northern Railway magnates, in
the parsonnel of W. W. Broughton, gen
eral traffic manager; W. P. Kenney, assistant traffic manager; M. J. Costello,
industrial agent, with head offices at St.
Paul; Max Bass, immigration agent,
Chicago, and H. M. Adams, assistant
traffic manager at Seattle. W. T. Clark,
who has made a name for himself in connection with irrigation work in Win-
atchee, accompanied them in. The party
arrived in Princeton yesterday afternoon
at 5:30 o'clock, having left Keremeos at
4 a. m. the same morning. On the way
up a stop was made at Hedley for lunch
and a visit was paid the Nickle Plate
mine.
The party are out on a general tour of
inspection and are on their way home
from the coast, where they report business flourishing. The evident motive of
the trip in here was to become personally
acquainted with existing conditions enabling them to intelligently lay the matter before the directors. Mr. Broughton
speaks glowingly of what he has seen
here and says Princeton will not seem so
far away after this. Although the office
at St. Paul was furnished with maps and
all kinds of information touching  the
Similkameen, he jokingly remarked that
he had imagined it somewhere in the region ofthe north pole. When ones takes
into account the ignorance of even the
coast people regarding the Similkameen,
this is not to be wondered at.
After dinner Messrs. Costello, Max
Bass, and Clark drove up the Similkameen as far as Stevenson's ranch, lately-
purchased by the Great Northern, while
Messrs. Broughton, Kenney, and Adams
visited the coal mine, at which they were
greatly pleased.
Ea>h member of the party has gained
new ideas of the Similkameen which cannot but fail to Dear good results. And
they all expressed the belief that Princeton, owing to her advantageous situation, has a bright future. On being
questioned regarding constiuction from
Keremeos to Princeton this year, Mr.
Broughton and the other officials were
somewhat reticent, saying there was
nothing to give out beyond what Mr.
Hill had stated when here last week.
The party pulled out at an early hour
this morning on the return journey to
itheir various headquarters.
IMMIGRANTS FOR B. C.
At the annual meeting of the Victoria
Board of Trade held recently, Minister of
Finance Tatlow announced that the Government had completed definite arrangements with the Salvation Army for
bringing immigrants to British Columbia
this year. He explained the difficulty in
getting the immigrants past Ontario and
Manitoba, where the demand for agricultural laborers is great, but by advancing
a part of the passage money this difficulty
has at last been overcome. The labor
will be agricultural and domestic.
G. T. P. PROGRESS.
Progress made during the past twelve
months on the Grand Trunk Pacific road
between Saskatoon and Edmanton gives
more reassuring prospects of an early
completion than the work has hitherto
indicated. About 1,200 men and 900
teams of horses are employed on the
work. Seventy-five miles of road is
graded from Saskatoon west, and with
the large force employed now it is expected that over 100 miles west from
Saskatoon will be completed  by August

INVESTS IN PRINCETON.
N. Bangs, who arrived from Spokane
a week ago last Saturd y, in connection
with his timber interests here, left yesterday afternoon to look over some of the-
limits, accompanied by his son, W G..
Bangs, C. O. French, and S. Moore-
Mr. Bangs will then.go over the Hope-
trail to the coast, returning to Spokane
via Vancouver and Portland. Before
leaving Princeton he purchased several
lots and on his return here in a few week
will erect a building and open an office
when he will be able to personally supervise the extensive lumbering operations
which his company intend to carry on
here. Mr. Bangs looks upon Princeton as
a great industrial center, and coming
from a man of his wide experience and
observation, carrys weight. The operations of his company will mean a big
thing for Princeton, and he can be depended upon to speak a good word for
the Similkameen and Princeton in particular among our American cousins,
from whom we must look to in a great
measure for the development of the great
latent resources of this district.

OUR MINERAL PRODUCTION
The annual report on the mining
industry of   the Province   for   the
year euding Dec. 31, 1906, just issued by the Provincial Government,
contains a vast amount of interesting and useful information, and the
Provincial Mineralogist, Wm. Fleet
Robertson, is deserving of credit for
the completeness of the work.
The value of the mineral products of the Province show a
steady increase, the production for
1906 being '$24,980,546, which is
ir.2 per cent, greater than that of
the preceding year and 42 8 per
cent, greater than it was three years
ago. The returns show that the
increase this year is due chiefly to
the Boundary and coast districts.
Kast Kootenay and Cariboo about
held their own, while West Kootenay and L/illopet show a considerable decrease.
The tonnage of ore mined, exclusive of coal, was 1,963,872, 15
per cent, greater than 1905, the
number of mines shipping being
put down at 154, and of these only
77 shipped over 100 tons each.
The gross output cf the coal
mines for the year was 1,899,076
tons, which, with 17,230 tons taken
from stock, makes a total consumption of 1,916,306 tons. Of this total
amount, 1,361,728 tons weresold as
coal, of which 681,899 tons were for
home consumption and 679,829 tons
were exported, while 381,773 tons
were used in making coke. The
amount of coke made was 199,227
tons, which, together with 11,670
tons taken from stock, made the
sales for the year 210,897 tons.
The production of placer gold for
the year was $948,400, a decrease
of 2.2 per cent, from 1905, while
that produced 'from lode mining was
$4 630,639, of which 95 per cent,
was recovered from the smelting oi
copper-bearing ores.
Silver was nuiita to the amount
of 2,990,262 uuiReh, valued at $1,-
879,320, a slight .decrease from the
preceding year.
The amount of lead produced in
1906 was 52,408,217 pounds, valued
at $2,667,578, a decrease of 4,172,-
486 pounds froth-. 19135. The greater of the production comes from the
Fort Steel division.
The copper output in 1905 was
the largest the Province had ever
made, but the production of 1906
.eclipses it by 5,298,237 pounds, an
increase of 12 32 per cent., while
the value of the total product this
year is $2,412,343 in excess of the
preceding year, an increase of 41
per cent. The production for r9o6
was 42,990,488 pounds, valued at
$8,288,565. The increase is chiefly
attributable to the Boundary district, although there is an increase
in the coast district, but Rossland
shows a decrease.
There was no iron ore mined in
the Province during the year on account of there being no market for
it on the Pacific coast. The production of zinc ore was small, only
some 654 tons, and the industry
has been practically a stand still.
Platinum continues to be found
in small quantities in various parts
of the Province, notably in the
Simiikameen district, on the Ques-
nel river in Cariboo, on Thibert
creek in Cassiar, and in the Yukon.
The latest find was at Lillooet,
where a few on rices of crude plat
ium sand were saved by a prospector washing for gold.
Tbe mining recorder's report for
tbe Similkameen mining division is
contained in the report and is somewhat brief, merely touching on
development work being done on a
few claims at Bear Creek. Revenue
collected for the year was $5,170.05,
made up as follows: Free miners'
certificates, $1,464.90; mining receipts general, $2,934.15; acreage
tax mineral claims, $771.

Weak Women
- To weak and ailing women, there is at least one
way to help. But with that way. two treatments,
must be combined. One is local, one is constitutional, but both are important,  both essential.
Dr. Shoop's Night Cure is the Local.   I
Dr. Shoop's Restorative, the Constitutional.
The former—Dr. Shoop's Niglit Cure—is a topical
mucous membrane suppository remedy, while Dr.
Shoop's Restorative is wholly an internal treatment. The Restorative reaches throughout the
entire system, seeking the repair of all nerve,
all tissue, and all blood ailments.
The "Night Cure", as its name implies, does its
work while you sleep. It soothes sore and inflamed mucous surfaces, heals local weaknesses and
discharges, while the Restorative, eases nervous
excitement, gives renewed vigor and ambition,
builds up wasted tissues, bringing about renewed
strength, vigor, and energy. Take Dr. Shoop's
Restorative—Tablets or Liquid—as a general tonic
to the system.   For positive local help, use as well
