ANDERSON
I0RITY
For  Report   That Tulameen
Route Has Been   Finally Selected.
Right-of-way Through  Town  Closed
for—Trains to Princeton in
Six Months.
The question that has agitated the public mini! and caused all kind of o.pinions
to be expressed ever since it was announced that Jim Hill intended to build
a line of railway into the Similkameen
and on to the coast by way of the Hope
mouutains, has been what route would
be followed to the coast—the Tulameen
or tbe Similkameen. Survey parties
have teen in the field for some years endeavoring to find the most feasible line
aud little was known as to the outcome of
their work, although there are a few
wise one who now say "I told you so."
Major Anderson, purchasing agent for
the Great Northern Railway, who arrived in town oh Sunday, is the authority
for the statement that this question has
now been settled and that what is known
as the Tulameen route has been decided
on as the one to be followed to the coast.
While here the Major closed for the
right-of way through the town and also
secured running rights through a portion
of Gulliford's ranch, which goes to show
that the railway will run to this point
and then tunnel to the Similkameen.
The land secured foil the Townsite
Company includes part of block 26 and
the whole of blocks 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32,
33, lying between Endcliffe and Burton
avenues.
With the route to the coast decided on
and the right-of-way through the town
settled, it is stated that construction from
Oroville (to which point the rails will
be laid within a fortnight) will be pushed
with all possible speed with every reasonable prospect of reaching Princeton
within the next six months. As everyone
knows this will mean big things for
Princeton, as she will  be   railway head
quarters until connection is made to the
coast, during which time thousands of
dollars will be spent here.
The exact location of the railway station has not yet been decided, although
it is pretty well understood that it will
situated ou Vermillion avenue.
LICENSE COMMISSIONERS.
Although the Star does  not expect the
Provincial Government to distribute their
printing patronage with it, still when it
comes to a matter of publishing important public notices, that concern the people in this district, they might be excused for doing so. It's a great wonder
they even go so far as having these notices posted up in the Postoffice—a place
controlled by a Liberal Government. The
very idea. The Star, being a paper that
is run in the interests of the general public, and being quite willing to publish
anything in that line, does not mind
doing a little cheap advertising for tbe
Government even though it be Conservative.
A special meeting of the Board of License Commissioners for the Nicola Licensing District will be held in the Court
House here ou Monday, Oct. 29th, at 4
o'clock p. n.i., to consider the following
applications for liquor licenses: Transfers—Wm. C. McLean, Ashnola Hotel,
Ashnola, to Hugh Campbell; Jno. A.
Lundy, Otter Flat Hotel, Tulameen City,
to Wm. J. Henderson. Renewals—Hugh
Campbell, Ashnola Hotel; Wm. J. Henderson, Otter Flat Hotel.
JUST A  JOKE.
The Hedley Gazette is a funny little
paper, edited by a funny little man—
just a joke—MAJOR A. Megraw. This
Mr. Joke says "it is of no interest to the
public who owns the Gazette." Should
say not. But he wan s to know "how
much of the stock of the Okanagan is
owned by the Kennedys." A most interesting thing for the public to knoiv !
Jokey admits his interest in the Gazette
"is ABOUT equal to that of all the other
stockholders combined." What's his
share? If it had-been any less he would
have said so. "ABOUT all the other
stock holders combined" have the sympathy of the entire community.
THE TOWNSITE
CO. PROMISE
Much   Needed Improvements
Without   Delay--Water
Works, Etc.
With These Improvements Princeton
Will be Up-to-Date Town-Inviting to Outside Capital.
Mr. Hickling, one of the directors of
the Vermillion Forks Company, was interviewed by a representative of the Star
regarding his company's intentions re
the immediate undertaking of several
most urgent requirements, such as. an
u.>-to-4afe water works system, electric
iight, grading of streets, laying of sidewalks, etc. Mr. Hickling stated, now
that the right-of-way question had been
settled, the Vermillion Forks Company
were prepared to go ahead with the
required improvements as soon as the
necessaiy arrangements were made.
His chief object in going to the coast, at
this time was for the purpose of having
the water works company put on a proper business basis, when one-third of
the stock will be offered to the people of
Princeton. While in Vancouver he intended looking in the question of the
' best style of pipe to use, size, etc. The
site for the reservoir has been selected on
the hill on Billiter avenue, mains from
which will be brought along Bridge
street and Vermillion avenue.
As the railway company had agreed to
run a spur to the coal mine simultaneous
with their, line reaching here, Hickling
stated that it was his company's intention
to open up the mine early in the spring
and give employment to a large number
of men.

reported, among other things, having
been offered for sale a bear and a mountain goat from Chas. E. Clay, of Prince

price and couldn't buy. What's the matter with our park commissioners securing these animals. They would fit in
real nice with several other specimens
now running at large in Princeton, and
with a little training the bunch ought .0
do some clever stunts. Besides a properly conducted zoo would be a great attraction for tourists.

PRINCETON'S FUTURE.
It will be good news to all who
have an interest in the future welfare of Princeton to know that the
Great Northern Railway right-of-
way through the town has been settled aud that construction to this
point will be pushed during the
..winter with every reasonable prospect of the rails being laid to here
within the next six months. When
'this is accomplished Princeton will
become and remain railway headquarters until the line reaches the
coast. During this time thousands
of dollars will be disbursed here,
meaning prosperous times for us all.
That Princeton should be the chief
railway and commercial center in
the Similkameen no one will question, but to ensure this beyond the
shadow of a doubt, the citizens and
the townsite company in particular
have a duty to perform, and we
are glad to state that the Vermillion
Forks Company, through Mr.
Hickling, has promised to give immediate attention to one of the
most urgent needs of the community—a proper and efficient water
works system. We might also suggest that it would be a good idea to
lay sidewalks on the principal
streets which would help greatly to
give the town an up-to date appearance to strangers, not to mention
tbe convenience to the present residents. The town that wins is the
one that is possessed of citizens who
have confidence in its future, men
who invest their capita] in it, and
Dy so doing invite and encourage
others to do likewise,
is nothing that strikes a stranger so
forcibly as local enterprise. Let us
cast aside our little personal differences and join hands in making
Princeton the city she should be.
If we fail to do our duty in this respect we may wake up to find that
what rightly belonged to us has
been, lost:—lost through lack of enterprise in taking advantage of our
opportunities.
vincial liberals, will be there and
will assist in properly organizing
this district. Delegates are being
sent from all. points in the riding
and it is up to the liberals of Princeton to wake up and see that they
are represented on this occasion.
Although it is now pretty well understood that the McBride Government will meet in another session
of tbe House early in the new year,
it is more than likely that an appeal will be made to the country
next fall at the latest. It therefore
behooves the Liberals of this electoral district to get on a proper
fighting basis and not be found unarmed when the time does come.
The sanitary conditions in Princeton need attention. True there is
no outbreak of fever of any kind,
but that seems to be just a matter
of luck. TN'phoid has been raging
in neighboring towns and all on
account of defective sanitary conditions. We have a health officer
here and he should see to it
that proper and immediate steps.
are taken to guard the health of
the community by inaugurating a
system for removing all objectionable refuse and have it taken to the
dumping ground set aside for that
purpose. With winter coming on
and more or less rain falling, the
wells—the source from which the
town draws its water supply—are
bound to be become- contaminated
through seepage, thus becoming
the means for spreading disease in
every quarter. The health officer
is possessed of the proper authority
to have this matter attended to and
he should take the necessary steps
without delay.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Elsewhere will be found a notice
calling the attention of local liberals to the meeting to be held on
Saturday evening at 3 o'clock in
the Star office for tbe purpose of
selecting one or more delegates to
represent them at the big Liberal
gathering at Fairview on Thursday,
Oct 25th. Mr. J. A. Macdonald,
K. C, M. P. P., leader of the Pro-
. Why is the Conservative press
so mum on the disclosures that are
being made by the Insurance Commission at Toronto? Is it because
George Eulas Foster, Minister of
Finance in tbe last Conservative
Administration, the man who pretended to hold himself above reproach, the man who during the
recent session of the Dominion Parliament shouted graft until he was
black in the face, the man who
made such painful efforts to prove
graft in connection with Hon. Clifford Sifton's administration of the
Yukon and his dealings with the
Saskatchewan Land Co. (charges
which fell flat) is on the rack, and
his true character is being brought
to light? It was through Duncan
Ross, M. P., that Foster and his
Therej»nest 0f 1Taflers anr\  their  schemes
were bruught to public notice, and
since then some startling revelations
have been made. As head of the
Union Trust Co., a company organized by the Independent Order
of Foresters, evidently for the purpose of speculating with I. O. F.
funds, without the risk of one
cent of his own money, Foster
speculated with the funds of the
widows and fatherless, making
enormous profits thereby. On one
deal alone, through Geo. W. Fowler, Conservative M. P , this gang
of Foster grafters helped themselves
to $55,000 more of I. O. F. money
than was necessary for the purchase
of a certain property. A direct steal
of a small fortune. And these are
the men who will take the stump
and shout about the virtues of the
Conservative party. A nice gang
they would be to have access to the
Dominion treasury.
