Princeton coal is famous as a domestic fuel.
No sentiment, however beautiful, can compare with a lovely deed
44 There never was a day so misty and gray
That the blue was not somewhere above it;
There is never a mountain-top ever so bleak,
That some little flower does not love It."   .

VISIT OF PALEONTOLOGIST.
Lawrence M Lainbe," palaeontologist,
assisted., try Mr. Wilson, has made a collection of fossils in and about 'Princeton
during tbe week, having arrived here
last Saturday from Cariboo and going out
via . Penticton on TljiirSday. He found
this section rich in fossils but was unable
to visit the somewhat remarkable deposits up One-Mile. Palaeontology is one of
the most interesting of sciences as by it
the student is able to re-people and re-
inhabit the earth as it was millions of
years ago with man and beast. It also
explains the correlation of. plants with
mineral' formation and deposits and this
portion of Mr. Lambe's researches here
will be of interest and value when published to all engaged in'discoveries of
minerals. The fossils collected here will
be studied during the couiing winter at
Ottawa. The member for Yale Cariboo
is taking a deep interest in the geological work in progress and it isunderstood
he will urge that. a .structural survey be
made of the Similkameen at an early
date. ;      mt,;<
STILL HAS BUOYANT FAITH
Smith Curtis, ex-M;P.P., of Rossland,
was in town Wednesday on his way to
Roche river, where he is interested in
some high grade mineral properties. It
is some four or five years since Mr. Curtis
was here. Meanwhile he has not ob
served any striking-changes here nor has
he reason to alter bis optimistic opinion
so often expressed of this section of the
great Similkameen. He regrets the unfortunate blow which, mining received
by the failure of negotiations between
the B.C. Copper and Sunset peoples. Mr.
Underwood and his expert entertain high
Opinions of the Sunset, only the attitude
of the mine officials, caused a break in the
overtures. Mr. Curtis has been recently
empowered by the Sunset directors to
make terms with purchasers. His success in this line is well established and
a deal for this celebrated property, may
one not hope, soon be recorded.
Mr. Curtis's time is largely devoted to
mining, only once in a long while does
he return to his first love—politics. His
speech' at Ymir a few months ago made
an indelible impression on the electorate
of the province and was not challenged
by any government organs or politicians.
That faculty of driving truth home and
silencing the enemy is his forte in the
House and on the platform and makes
the oft applied phrase "Nestor of debate"
doubly appropriate in his case.
Mrs. W. W. Amburn and children are
guests of Mrs. Voigt, Copper mountain.
C. O. French is said to be locating a

Skagit Pass.
Chief Engineer Says Steel will be at
Keremeos this Fall—Laying
Track Slowly.
The .preliminary surveyjof the V., V.
& E. on the Similkameen - route is making good progress this fine weather. Mr.
Amburn's large party is being victualled
from Princeton with Snowden Bros, pack
train. Another surveyor is reported to
be on the way from St. Paul and will take
the field with a party, thus hastening the
work to a finish' before deep snow is met
with on the summits.
Chief Engineer Kennedy states that
steel will be at Keremeos this fall. Construction would begin from the coast end
if laborers could be obtained but there
are none available. Newspapers everywhere complain of the extraordinary
dearth of laborers.      |SSwt ;*■''?
I;. E. Shields1 states that the grading to
Keremeos is nearly completed <and that
the 1700 foot tunnel at Oroville will be
finished this week. Tracklaying is making slow progress- and Mr. Shields does
not look for any change until after harvest when men will be more plentiful.
The steam shovel near Myers creek has
been closed down for want of men. Out
of 50 laborers shipped from Spokane only
17 showed up at Midway.
Prom the summit of Hope mountains,
Coquihalla pass, to Hope is 38 miles, on
which there is about x% miles of tunnelling. The longest tunnel is nearly 3000
feet in length. The Skagit pass is re-j
ported to be 500 feet higher than the Coquihalla and Silver creek a succession of
canyons.
Work on the North Fork of Kettle
river has been stopped and no further
grading is likely to be done this year.
The Great Northern is said to be dick-,
ering for the Midway & Vernon charter.
PASSED WITH HONOBS.
George A; M. Dickson, son of Robert
B. Dickson of One Mile, according to
the Ayr Advertiser, has recently passed
his preliminary examination in Arts in

Mathematics; nth place on general bursary list; 2nd class honors certificates in
Latin and Greek ; 3rd class honors certificates in Mathematics; M.A. degree

W. C. McDougall has returned from

with legal matters affecting his interests
in the United Empire mine. Everything
that was in dispute has been settled out

to the development of this very promising property. Mr. McDougall's well

If there should be auy doubt in the
minds of incredulous persons regarding
the apple-growing qualities of climate
and soil in the district of Princeton a
look at Hugh Hunter's orchard will dis
pel it altogether. Some of his trees have
overborne, making it necessary to pick:
the fruit to relieve stress on the burdened

of fruit. In the same orchard there has
been a prolific yield of small fruits.

This is the first time such an inspection
has been made here. The department is

the province for the purpose of making
known the advantages and operation of
the system which is about to be introduced in all the progressive countries of
the world.

WEATHEB AND CBOPS.
The drouth which has prevailed for
more than a month, accompanied by
warm winds, has bleached the hills to a
decided gray. In some instances crops
have been injured, but only where irrigation was not sufficient or absent altogether. The weather could not be excelled for hay and grain saving and farmers are making all haste though short of
help. Rain would be most welcome to
stay the fires and moderate the cracking
heat, besides giving the needed moisture
to all vegetation. In the aggregate an
average yield of all crops is promised.
Beef cattle are all in prime condition,
there being sufficient bottom feed to prevent any serious shrinkage. Rain, may
be reasonably expected about tbe last
quarter of this moon although at present
writing the sky is cloudless and brassy.
A WONBBOUS THING..
A wag has dubbed the Hedley Gazette
the "Nine Days Wonder" since it wasted
columns in abuse of the Minister of Railways, the Liberal government, Mr. Ross
and the Star, for the alleged "delay" in
issuing the order to build the V.,V. & E.
into Hedley. It so happened that the
necessary order was issued Nine Days
before the Gazette began its furious but
impotent attack. A wise man would
have made sure of that fact before giving vent to the rankest bluster and false
statements ever printed. Now, the Gazette is derided by friend and foe for its
stupidity and misrepresentation.. Has
the editor of this "Nine Days Wonder"
the gentility to apologise ? It is doubtful.

ravening beasts of prey break out

hope that  the Liberal premier will
turn  a  deaf ear   to    their  hollow
pleadings, thus preserving for them
a favorite  bone  of contention and
j one which has a popular ring to it.
The various deputations which have
gone  to Ottawa* to seek redress of
British Columbia grievances  in the
past were composed of men whose
political fibre was.so«tiff and brist-
,,  ling  that immediately   they came
j 1  in contact with  Liberal ministers
a  feeling  of. diffidence,, if not  of
actual hostihtj*, was  provoked..  If
this province   is   ever  to have its
, wrongs removed it can  only be accomplished by friendly and concilia^-
tory  persons  who  are  gifted with
some  diplomatic  tact.    A  deputation of Tory warriors  seeking certain benefits from a Liberal government,   or from  any, government to
which   they   are  opposed,   cannot
hope to obtain the concessions that
a friendly . embassy could.     There
is only one logical conclusion to the
whole  subject of provincial rights.
If they are  ever  to be gained during the present long lived regime
of Liberals  at Ottawa harmonious
relations  must   be established between the two capitals.    Very probably the only solution of and remedy
for  provincial   grievances' will  be
found in,, electing a government in
touch and sympathy with Ottawa*
It is a  matter  for serious thought
and reflection by all voters between
now and polling day of the coming
provincial  elections.    On'their decision   hangs  the  satisfactory  settlement   of   all   controversy;  the
adjustment of the Dominion subsidy; the  opening of some Indian
Preservations to purchase and settlement ; control of the fisheries, &c.

it strike this company as a little unusual
hat a professional humorist should be
funny?" When the laughter that greeted sally had subsided Mark drawled out:
