GRADING ON 90 MILES
Construction now Extends to
Keremeos and Surveys
Rushed West.
Steel will be Laid Into Similkameen
in April—Troubles are Ended
at Midway.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the
V.,V & E., while here last week with A.
E. Baldwin made plans of the station site
and switch yards. To reach the coal
mine of the V.F.M. Co. a switch will be
put in off the main line where it leaves
the south bank of the Similkameen.
Engineer Crenshaw, with his party now
working on the Wolf creek survey, is expected in Princeton next week to begin
location work westward on railway line.
A. E. Baldwin, chief of railway survey
staff, has been on a tour of inspection
Over the work of engineers Ambourn and
Tracy. Mr. Tracy will be at Hope with
his line in a short time and Mr. Ambourn
has reached the main wagon road east of
Hope Summit thus dispensing with Luke
Gibson's pack train for the present.
Grading has, begun at Armstrong's, below Keremeos,
Latest reports from Midway are to the
effect that quietude now reigns since
Sheriff Wood took his departure and the
hired army of the C.P.R. disbanded.
These irregular troops were paid $4. per
day during their term of service and were
such a tough lot that not even a Palstaff
would be seen marching with them.
The laying   of steel   this side of the
boundary,  on official calculation, is ex
peeted to be in April.
Pete Larson, the millionaire railway
contractor, is dying of cancer of the
liver at Helena, Mont. He is interested
in some heavy V.,V. & E. contracts.
FILLED BEAK WITH LEAD.
Bob Cramer and Sam Moore had some
"divarshun" with a big black bear on
Copper mountain last week in which it
looked as if somebody wanted to do the
"tree act." The positions of Bob, Sam
and the bear formed an equilateral triangle of which his bearship was the apex.
Firing begun from Sam's corner when the
bear closed up a few paces to see what
Bob Was doing, then both hunters got
busy unloading t^p.r magazines. The
bear was so fat that the bullets glanced
from under his skin leaving his vitals unscathed. By the time bruin was within
25 feet of Mr. Cramer his magazine was
empty and the bear still a-coming. Then
was done some lightning calculations as
to the distance to a limb on a friendly
tree ; meanwhile Sam's deadly aim with
his last   reserve   shot  sent the enraged
brute to earth. Mr. Cramer could feel
the hot breath of the animal on the back
of his.neck when he got his desert. The
bear weighed 440 lbs. and yielded two
pails of oil besides making fine muck-amuck of the carcase.
C.P.R. COMMISSIONER.
W. Pearce, assistant C.P.R. land commissioner, was a passenger on last Saturday's stage from Spence's Bridge. On
his arrival he immediately set out for
Allison with a guide. Whether his visit
has any bea«iug of public interest time
aloile will disclose. One thing is certain,
he found the townsite with its streets all
laid out with geometrical precision, but
like many other travellers he was forced
to exclaim "Allis(on), where art thou?"
As land commissioner be has been selecting the lands granted the Columbia &
Western, which is owned by the C.P.R
His headquarters are at Calgary where
he is superintendent of a big irrigation
scheme for the C.P.R.

s [Continued from last week.]
Editor Star—Sir : They cared little
for the superficial shams and hypocrisies
of an ape like society, caring less about
the cut of a man's clothes or the way he
held his fork than his principles. They
only wanted to know that he was a man,
or wanted to be one, tolerating and often
enjoying the comyany of a man who
would squander money, but to steal or
wilfully waste food were among the worst
crimes in their calendar. Like the
groups of great poets of all ages nocreed
could claim them ; religion, race, nationality, previous social, condition, all were
one to them until it became impossible to
tell a Jew from a. Gen-tile if he had lived
long among them. They did not build
large houses for meirwith small souls to
live in—small houses inhabited by men
with large souls suited them better and
was apt to make a better world to live in.
They had no cathedrals, jails or poor-
houses and were the missionaries- of freedom, humanity and justice.
They did not preach much, but their
sermons were good deeds. Their self
sacrifices and heroic acts in etorm and
flood would fill volumes. Their religion-
was as broad and old as humanity; too
broad for any creed, it embraced all the
fundamental principles of human happiness—it was not for one day iu the week
only, they carried it around with them
all days and kept it in their vest pockets
close to the heart, on tap, where they
could get at it quickly without any theological red tape. They worked for themselves and lived for others, mingling joy
with their toil. Work tnat we love is not
work.
The first sound that greeted the ear of
the stranger who came to their cabin was
to rest and eat. The' earth has produced
no better men than these pioneers of the
west. They had the highest form of
charity—charity toward the faults and
failings of others and if all the good
deeds they have done for each other and
for others were recorded it would make
the best book in literature. Many sleep
beneath the soil of the hills that gives
each flower its birth. A few still live.
Even now, as in the past, whenever you
meet one of them he is the same bright,
genial, charitable gentleman, in'every
sense that the term implies. To have
met and known them helps to make life
worth living.
All the recent events certainly indicate
of one or more good towns in the Similkameen district. Mines, fruit and good
soil, make a strong combination and there
is tangible proof on all sides that we are
in the center of one of the best apple
belts in the entire northwest, with a climate unsurpassed anywhere and no opportunity should be lost to lay stress on
these facts in big letters.
Nothing advertises and supports all the
other resources like a few successful
mines. Here and all over the coast there
is a tendency in advertising to overbuild
the town during the initial stages of un- •
developed resources and produce an artificial growth ; the result is too much
town, little or no employment, no pay
roll, no opportunities for men of small
means, little money in circulation aria
many disappointed men ; all of ."which
in the long juh react against the place
and which in the end often means failure.
Monuments of this common delusion
exist all around us A boom in the
midst of undeveloped mines and soil
is like a man on a spree, simply a case of
temporary insanity—a delicious sensation
while it lasts, but the sobering up process will double discount the delusive
joy of the past. I do not wish to see
Princeton fall into thiserror.
Push the natural resources to the front
or get men here who can and will. No
section ever possessed more of these than
exist here. Climate, timber, coal, vast
water power, the best of soil, and some
of the greatest bodies of gold and copper
ore in the world and cheap power to work
them. Bring these factors to the notice
of the world and the town will take care
of itself. It requires only two well directed simple forces to do this, not
hoards of money, but determination and
the united enterprise of a few men. A
few broad gauged, liberal-minded, pro •
gressive men, not wealth, are the types
of men who make all the big mining,
camps, towns and permanent cities. Enterprising men and methods with little
or no means have made the western continent what it is today. Adolph Sutro
had $200 of borrowed money when he
went to Washington to obtain a franchise
for his great tunnel that drained the Corn-
stock mines and that, too, against the
combined power of three banks.
Men who are worth anything are attracted by enterprise. We like a sparkling, rapid stream, better than a sluggish
pool. In every locality there is a class of
business men who stand in their shop
doors, like the ancient Jew, eager to grab
the result of mine or farm but who never
risk a dollar in either, or even aid in
their development. They are narrow
and mean. Their influence means stagnation and decay, vacant lots and houses.
Their existence acts like a millstone on
the neck of industrial progress and ultimately strangles it.

The blowing in.of the Dominion
Copper Co's Boundary Falls smelter
makes a third   smelter in operation
in   the   Boundary    district^      The
Similkameen district  could keep a
half dozen smelters   going if there
were rail  communication—but the
railways are coming, sure.

The election  of the  Hon. A. B.
Aylesworth, postmaster-general, by
over  500   majority   in North York
is another emphatic answer to that
puling press   which proclaimed the
Autonomy   bill   an outrage and an
imposition upon   the  people.    The
Alberta    elections     paralyzed   the
howling Tory press, then   the}' saw
a. glim   of hope  and  in their usual
ranting.style shouted, ."North York
:'will condemn   the   bill .and   send
Aylesworth back   to his briefs and
big fees."   ■ Aylesworth   is   victorious "and . now   the   howlers   say :
''Saskatchewan   and   Haultaiu  are
one  in . denunciations* qf-^'Preitiier
Laurier  and   his,.-'''Autonomy *brli,
victory is ours !"'.' The.'result of the
elections   today   in   the    new  pro-
, vince  of Saskatchewan .will not be
...known in Princeton before.Mondia3f-
but there is no doubt as to'the outcome.    Premier  Scott   will have a
good,   workable' majority :o'M^iber-
, als in the   new legislatUre'afid that
is all that is  required   to Safeguard
the people's interests arid prevent a
ravenous^paek of Tory office hunters from   raiding, the treasury.    It
is   hoped   tbat  Saskatchewan   will;
Send a healthy and   vigorous opposition' to the new house for there is
danger of irregularities where there
is lack of monitory  discipline from
opponents. 4$^ :j§§#Jj
The demand for copper is increasing and with it the price is
also advancing. It is predicted
that copper will not be less than
17 cents during 1906.
One thing the Conservatives must
now and forever hold their peace
about and that is their effort to
make the 'foreign element response
ble for L/iberal victories irr the
Northwest. In the recent Alberta
elections the only foreigner elected
was a Conservative Mennonite
named Hebert and, in all the constituencies the "Dotiks" and other
------      —~—.^-^- .
foreigners voted the Conservative
ticket. The- howling tory-press will
now have to invent some new and
ignoble cause for the remarkable
run of Liberal successes everywhere. Whatever the enemies of
Liberalism may say the fact is very
plain that Liberal Canada is now
the most prosperous country on
earth.
The directors of the War Eagle
and .Centre Star have decided to
amalgamate which will conduce to
more profitable working of both.

Considerable .discussion   on   the
subject of Sujii|ay observance is at
present  going   on in   the   press in
which preacher and lay-ran set forth
their   views   in   more  or  less convincing terms.    It is somewhat "surprising   how'.-- great the diversity of
Opinions ;is_on such a  simple  command as this :  " Six days shalt t-hqu
\abor   and. do   all thatthott hast to
do, but the'seventh is the Lord thy

some dispute   the day&generaily recognized, as the  Jews, and observe

they are chiefly concerned with the
spiritual   and   not   the   letter..of its

The   horse   and   the  steam engine

the right proportion-of- rest to.labor
for man and' beast.    For 'the  man

the ..day -of rest- will not have any

can   furnish   abundant- reasons for

religious, common sense -and. legal
interpretation of Sunday is to make
it a day of rest.    Everybody- is entitled  to that ' rest'\a:nd  it !must be

Synopsis  of Regulations   Governing
the Disposal of Dominion Lands
within the Railway Belt in
the Province of British Columbia.
A LICENSE to cut-timber can be acquired only at public competition. A
rental of $5 per square mile is charged
for all timber berths excepting those situated west of Yale for which the rental is
at the rate of 5 cents per acre per annum.
In additiou to the rental dues at the
following rates are charged : Sawn ium-
ber, 50 cents per thousand feet B.M. Railway ties, eight and nine feet long, i)4
and 1% cents each. Shingle bolts, 25
cents a cord. All other products, 5 per
cent on the sales.
A license is issued so soon as a berth is
granted, but in unsurveyed territory no
timber can be cut on a berth until the
licensee has made a survey thereof.
Permits to cut timber are also granted
at public competition, except in the case
of actual settlers who require the timber
for their own use.
Settlers and others may also obtain permits to cut up to 100 cords of wood for
sale without competition.
The dues ' payable under a permit are
$1.50 per thousand feet B.M., for square
timber and saw logs of any wood except
oak; from 14 to xy2 cents per lineal foot
for building logs ; from X2}4 to 25 cents
per cord for wood; 1 cent for fence posts;
3 cents for railway ties; and 50 cents per
cord on shingle bolts.
Leases for grazing purposes are issued
for a term of twenty one years at a rental
of two cents an acre per annum.
Coal lands niay be purchased at $ro per
acre for soft coal and $20 for anthracite.
Not more than 320 acres may be acquired
by one individual or company.
Royalty at,the" rate of 10 cents per ton
of- 2,000 pounds is c611ected on the gross
output.
Entries for land for agricultural purposes may be' made personally at the local
land Office for the district in which the
land to be taken is situated, or if the
homesteader desires, he may, on application to the minister of the interior at
Ottawa, the commissioner of immigration at Winnipeg, or the local agent for
the district within which the land is situated, receive authority for some one to
make entry tor him.
A fee of $10 is charged for for a home^
stead entry. -
A settler who has received an entry for
a homestead is required to perform the
conditions connected therewith under
one of the following plans:
1. At least six months' residence upon
and cultivation of the land in each year
during the term of three years. It is the
practice of .the department to require a
settler to bring 15 acres under cultivation, but if he prefers he may substitute
stock; and 20 head of cattle, to be actually his own property, with buildings for
their occupation, will be accepted instead
of the cultivation.
2. If the. father (or mother, if the father is deceased) of. any person who is
eligible to make a homestead entry under
the provisions of the act, resides upon a
farm in the vicinity of the land entered
for by such person -as a homestead, the
requirements of the Act as to residence
prior to obtaining patent may be satisfied
by such person residing with the father
or mother.
. 3. If the settler has his permanent residence upon farming land owned by him
in the vicinity of his homestead, the requirements of the Act as to residence
may be satisfied by residence upon the
said land.
Application for a patent should be made
at the end of three years before the local
agent, sub agent or a homestead inspector.
Before making an application for a
patent the settler must give six months'
notice in writing to the commissioner of
Dominion lands at Ottawa, of his intention to do so.
