TRIAIT OF "RbBBER
Disagreement of Jury Renders,
Null First Hearing of
Train Bandits.
Second Trial in Progress—Prisoners
Ably Defended—Edwards is
" Old Bill."
The trial of the train robbers at Kamloops has attracted a large crowd of the
idle curious to the court room every day
of the trial besides a number of detectives and witnesses from the United States
whose business was to identify the leader
of the gang. Judge Irving sat on the
bench and twelve attentive jurors listened
to the evidence as elicited by crown
prosecutor Fulton and A. D. Macintyre,
counsel for the prisoners. The brilliant
defence put up by lawyer Macintyre-was
the best criminal pleading ever heard in
•Kamloops and if the.accused did not gain
their freedom it was not for lack of an
able presentation of their case. After
hearing the learned counsel's address on
behalf of the prisoners the jury retired
but were unable to find a verdict for or
against, through disagreement, and were
accordingly dismissed. A new trial is
now proceeding as the Star goes to press
particulars of which must be deferred
until next issue.
It has been learned since the indictment of the prisoners that the real object of their plunder was a gold brick
shipped from the Daly Reduction Co. at
Hedley on the day previous to the robbery. Confederates of the trio of robbers
apprised them of the shipment of the
prick, which was worth about #20,000.
but they made the blunder of cutting off
the postal for the baggage car where the
gold remained undisturbed.
The identification of Edwards as the
notorious Bill Miner, on whose head are
rewards amounting to $ 15,000, has been
established beyond all doubt by certain
body marks and tattooing. It has been
stated in the press that he was a Canadian, but his vernacular, manner and appearance all indicated that he was a
southerner, and he had said so himself, if
that amounts to anything. As to his
socialistic ideas announced by a coast
paper, he never openly declared himself
to those who met him frequently here,
but his actions seem to indicate that he
believed in a division of wealth in which
"Old Bill" would get rather more than
half. He always expressed great antipathy for capital, but here again his actions
pointed to an unlawful desire to become
a capitalist quickly. He was a sort of
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and lived a
double life while here.
It is evident that there is an organized
gang   of  robbers   operating   along   the
C.P.R. having in collusion with them
employees of the road who are in a position to give tips, Regarding the serious
reflection cast upon Princeton and district by the remarks of a C.P.R. official
published in a sensational coast journal
that a lot of outlaws and bad men were
living in seclusion here under assumed
names, there is no foundation for such
assertion. Because Edwards made this
section his rendezvous since 1904 and
his accomplice, Dunn, lived here a few
years, no stigma can attach to Princeton
or neighborhood. Most mining camps
have a following of tough characters but
Princeton is singularly free from this
element. Edward*?' suavity of manner
paved the way to his introduction into
the highest society in Princeton and he
waltzed and polkaied at social functions
as blithely as the most innocent. In this
he was not a whit behind Jabe Balfour
and 'Billy' Hooley who robbed widows
jind orphans by nefarious schemes and
,yet floated around with the aristocracy
pf England. The police records of
Princeton, if there are any, will show
that this is a law-abiding, peace loving
and quiet community and any insinua
tions to the contrary by a high railway
official, whose name is withheld this time,
or by any yejlow newspaper, will be
promptly denied and disproved.
GOT IN ON GROUND FLOOR.
Messrs. Wilmot and Featherstone were
recent arrivals from Wallace, Idaho, having come to examine mineral interests
here. They realize the importance and
advantage of being early on the ground
to annex a share of nature's gifts. Great
as Idaho is in mineral wealth the visitors
think the Similkameen will surpass it in
variety of resource and industries when
it has attained the same stage of development. They are interested in a group
of coal claims on which there is an outcrop seam of 15 feet in thickness and
on which they will immediately spend
money in preparation for shipping. Mr.
Featherstone is negotiating for a town
site in which St. Paul capital is expected
to dominate. Both gentlemen express
great faith in this section which they
prove by investing in its resources and
inviting friends to do likewise. They
left on Thursday for Spokane, going via
Midway.
PARISH MEETING.
The annual church meeting of St.
Cuthbert's parish was held in the court
house on Monday last, Rev. E. R. Bart-
lett,minister, in the chair. Dr. Schon and
R. Hewat having declined a second term
as churchwardens E. Waterman and E.
B. Hall were elected as clergyman's and
people's wardens, respectively. Messrs.
Hewat, Schon, Groves, C. E. Thomas,
Lyall and A. E. Jackson were elected
sidesmen and also constitute the church
committee. Mr. Waterman was appointed-lay delegate to the synod.
T0Wfl AND DISTRICT
Pertinent Paragraphs   Penned
for Pensive Perusal by
a Penitent.
Glorious Rain   and Sunshine Makes
the Heart of Hodge Rejoice
and Enlarge.
Paul Laplante arrived yesterday with
his family and farming outfit from Col-
ville, Wash., and will settle on his land
in the Five-Mile district. He states that
a number of neighbors and others will
shortly follow him here.
Crops and pasturage are in fine condition and ranchers and cattlemen are all
in the best of spirit.
Ben Baker received word from his old
tillicum, Van Mills, dated at Cobalt, Ont.,
where he is in the employ of capitalists
buying, mineral properties. Van is an
o.d and respected pioneer of Princeton
and is keeping in touch with it that he
may take advantage ef the golden opportunities which he so well knows are in
this district.
Snowden Bros, have driven a tunnel on
the B.C. Collieries Co's coal property on
the western borders of the town and are
have exposed a 6-foot seam of excellent
coal.
Hughie Campbell has received a letter
from a relative in France stating that the
weather has been very cold, so much so
that the Parisians were paid a damaging
visit from Jack Frost recently. The Star
invites the inhabitants of 'La Belle
France' to come to the sunny Similkameen where the climate is salubrious all
the year round. Maybe Mr. Campbell
could do some immigration woric in gay
Paris or induce some French 'dough' to
come this way for investment.
Tom Hughes has recently built a snug
rectory for the Rev. Mr. Bartlett on a lot
near the Similkameen along the tunnel
route of the V..V. & E.
Smith Curtis, ex-M.P.P., is expected to
arrive in Princeton shortly on mining
business.
Robert Stevenson, the veteran prospector and frontiersman, with Messrs.
Campbell and Johnson, has been ready
for some days with pack outfit to go to
the hills but has been delayed by rain.
Mr. Stevenson notes a great change in
the climate since he came here in the
early days. Then the blue vault of hea
ven was scarcely ever overcast from May
to October, now, the clouds seem never
to roll by for any extended time.
W. C. McDougall arrived from Vancouver last Saturday. He. is developing
the United Empire with energy, which
mining men are not slow, to say has the
earmarks of a big mine. His Ipersever-
ing effort in proving this mineral property to be of undoubted merit is deserving of generous reward. Mr. McDougall states that Vancouver is making
great strides in wealth and population
and must soon become a large city of
vast commercial importance. He is concerned in litigation which called him
to  Vancouver but was postponed until
July.
A. Gallinger, of Oshkosh, Wis., will
arrive at Otter Flat today and will begin
work on the Cousin Jack at once. He
will require some practical miners.
E. P. Wheeler came in from Concon-
nully, Wash., this week and went up to
Friday creek.
Neil McFadden was summoned to Kamloops to identify his horse supposed to "
be in possession  of train robbers at the
time of their capture.

Rev. D. F. Smith, B.A.
PATRIARCH OF THE CHURCH.
Rev. Canon Tremayne, of Mitnico,
Ont., father of Mrs. W. C. Lyall, arrived
in Princeton Wednesday on a visit to his
relatives. He has been rector of the
church at Mimico for some thirty years
and is now journeying in the west on
a holiday, visiting his children, grandchildren and great-grand-children in B.C,
He was very much impressed with the
broad prairies, the sea of mountains and
beautiful valleys which he saw the first
time. The reverend gentleman admires
Princeton and foresees a great future
for it when the treasure vaults of rich
ore are unlocked with drill and dynamite
and the panting steed of commerce whistles at the railway station. From here
he will go to the coast, visiting relatives
there and on to Metlakahtla and Prince
Rupert where his son, Dr. Tremayne, is'
practising.
TWO MEETINGS.
A meeting to take steps toward celebrating Dominion day was held in the
board of trade rooms on Wednesday evening, C. E. Thomas in the chair and D.
M. Kydd, secretary. Messrs. Summers,
Wardle and Campbell were appointed a
committee to procure ways and means
for sports. The meeting adjourned until
Monday evening to receive the report
of the committee. At the close of the
above meeting another was held to discuss fire brigade matters, in which the
site for a building and the assembling of
fire apparatus were topics. The hook
and ladder cait was ordered to be got
in readiness and another ladder procured
for emergent occasions, for which further public subscriptions may be required;.

ELECTRICAL SMELTING.
Smelting by electricity has been
in successful operation in Sweden
and France for three or four years
and for as many months it has been
in use in  Canada.    The process is
of  such remarkable economic advantage  in smelting iron ores and
;^|he manufacture of steel that it is
likely to become universal for those
purposes.  At Sault Stu. Marie,Ont.,
electric furnaces of special design
•have been installed for the production of pig iron  from hematite ore.
The experimental  stage  has been
passed in electrical smelting of iron
and nickel ores, its adaptability for
other ores  has  not  been so thoroughly tested.    Canada has boundless stores of iron ore, some of them
in   the   Similkameen,   which will
make it one of the greatest iron and
steel   producing  countries in the
world. '|||p»$«&
The increasing scarcity of timber
in the older countries  has turned
the  attention  of scientists and experimenters to  a cheap and better
substitute—it  has   been   found in
electrically   produced steel.     The
days of wood are numbered,  the
steel age is dawning.    For structural purposes steel  has  no equal,
its only drawback  hitherto being
the cost of production.    Electricity
has  overcome the  high price and
another triumph  of science  is recorded.    In the Similkameen there
are large deposits of iron ore contiguous  to  both  water power and
coal for the generation of electrical
energy.     Under   these   conditions
more favorable   smelting facilities
could hardly be found.
tive  teaching  and  principles they
cherish  the doctrine of protection
to and beyond the limit—they would
prevent expenditure of $30,000,000
in construction of the railway for
the mere whim   of  opposing the
Liberal doctrine of free  trade in
railways.    The people of  Canada
are tired of railway monopoly and
welcome competition with  enthusiastic joy.    Come on Mr. Hill with
your   railway.     The   citizens   of
Princeton are ready with banquet
and   monument   to   commemorate
the victories over mountains and
men of the first railway man of the
world.

Dated May 2,1906.
Canada was never so prosperous
as at present.    New fields of enterprise  are opening  up apntinually
as the result of a remarkable influx
of settlers on  the  broad plains of
the west.    Twenty-five years ago
the  northwest   territories   were a
great lone land   with  nothing to
denote life but the wandering tribes
of Indians  and the curling smoke
from their teepees.   Today scenes
of great activity may be observed
at the railway stations as the great
sea of humanity treks to new found
homes.     Soon   Princeton  will   be
caught in the swirl of immigration
for now the first  low echoes of the
iron steed are heard  in the circumambient air.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The opposition of some Conservative politicians and newspapers to
President Hill's railway project to
connect Winnipeg with Vancouver
via Princeton is so blindly stupid
that one wonders if lunacy is not
the real cause of it. They wail
about the folly and weakness of the
Liberal government .for encouraging Mr. Hill to build railways without subsidy or grant. They say
his road will divert trade to the
United States to the ruin of Canadian railways and they see all manner of evil bogeys cropping out of
the proposition.   True .to Conserva-
It is proposed in the house of
commons at Ottawa to make voting
compulsory, the penalty for failing
to vote, except for reasonable cause,
being fixed at disfranchisement for
six years. Men who are so indifferent to the rights, privileges and
responsibilities of citizenship as to
not vote should have some spur to
induce them to exercise this important duty. If compulsory education is good for the nation compulsory responsibility should be
good also. As a rule those who do
not vote are either purchasable or
chronic fault-finders. They criticise those who do vote and endeavor to impress persons with their
superior wisdom after the battle has
been fought. Compulsory voting
will lessen the tendency to corruption by removing some, at least;
from "off" the fence," Anything
that will tend to purify elections is
well worth a trial.
CERTIFICATE OF THE REGISTRATION OF AN EXTRA-PROVINCIAL
COMPANY. 	
"Companies Act, 1897."
I HEREBY CERTIFY that the "Holland Gold-Copper Mining Company" has
this day been registered as an Extra
Provincial Company under the "Companies Act, 1897," to carry out or effect all
or any of the objects of the Company to
which the legislative authority of the
Legislature of British Columbia extends.
The head office of the Company is situate at Spokane, Spokane County, State
of Washington.
The amount of the capital of the Company is one million dollars, divided into
one million shares of one dollar each.
The head office of the Compan}- in this
province is situate at Princeton, and W.
C. Lyall, Merchant, whose address is
Princeton, is the attorney for the Company.
The time of the existence of the Company is fifty years from the 27th day of
November, 1905.
Given under my hand and seal of office
at Victoria, Province of British Columbia, this 23rd day of April, one thousand
nine hundred and six.
[L.S.] S. Y. WOOTTON,
Registrar of Joint Stock Companies.
. The objects for which the company has
been established and registered are, for
the purpose of locating, purchasing, developing! and trading in mining claims
containing valuabie mineral deposits, and
doing each and every act and thing in
anywise connected with, or pertaining
to, mining operations.
There are some good reasons for
believing that the provincial elections will be brought on this fall.
A McBride dal% newspaper will
soon be started in Nelson, which
cannot support one good paper, the
News. The Socialists are becoming obstreporous and dictatorial,
so much so, that they now demand
a seat in the cabinet; and many
Conservatives threaten to leave the
party altogether if the premier does
not cut them out. The Kaien
Island and Columbia & Western
deals smell louder with age—Rich-.
ard's .only hope is early dissolution. ]
WARNING - GLANDERS.
In districts where the existeuce of
Glanders is suspected and especially in
neighborhoods where actual outbreaks
have occurred the adoption ofsjhe fol
lowing precautions by owners of horses
and others interested will do much to
prevent the spread of the disease and the
establishment of fresh centres of infection.
1. Horses or mules having a nasal discharge or other suspicions symptoms
should not be admitted to livery or feed
stables or yards, blacksmith shops,
church or school sheds, railway stock
yards, private stables or other places
where they are likely to come into direct
or indirect contact with animals of the
equine species.
2. All stables, yards or sheds used for
the accommodation of horses or mules
should be regularly and frequently
cleansed and disinfected in the mannerl
prescribed below.
3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly, and burning all debris, the interior should be well gone over with hot
steam, or boiling water, adding to the
latter at least one quart of crude carbolic
acid to each five gallons after which the
entire surface should be thickly coated
with a hot solution of fresh lime wash,
to which crude carbolic acid has been
added in the above mentioned proportion.
Outbuildings, fences, and tying posts
with which infected animals have been in
contact, should also, when possible, be j
thoroughly treated in a similar manner.

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Robert Stinson has returned from the
Okanagan  and   reports   dry weather in
that   valley.     The   Similkameen   looks
- good to him even if the railroad is a little
slow making the curves. ]J
McCoskery Bros, are making good progress on their big hotel which is now
receiving the roof.
Some vague rumors have been going
around that placer diggings giving $15
to the pan have been discovered on Bear
creek. It is well known that in the
watershed of the Tulameen and tributaries there has been good money made
in former days and there is no doubt
some rich ground was overlooked in the
rush then.
The log drive of the Hedley Lumber
-Co. on the Similkameen river is progressing nicely, the water being at a
stage which makes it both safe and free
of jams.
Attention is directed to the adv't of
Cook & Co. in this column.
D. G. Hackney of Hedley was in town
taking in the sports last week. He was
in Alberta during the spring noting the
marvellous development of that country.
But he sees greater possibilities for the
Similkameen aud came back fully persuaded that business chances are superior
here. He is likely to become a permanent resident of Princeton.
Alex. Robinson, deputy minister of
education, was in town this week on an
official tour of the district.
A number of Mormon emigrants from
Utah passed through Princeton this week
with horses, wagons, farm implements
and household effects-on their way to
Bulkley valley where they intend to
settle.
Engineer Amburn has got beyond Ash-
nola with the railway survey and will
soon be in the canyons of the Similkameen river.
Geo. Aldous has recently finished his
assessment work on the Lone Star and

SMILES.
Hear the madly cheering thousands
As the ball is deftly whirled.
Ah ! the hand that does the pitching
Is the hand that rules the world.
"Is  Wilkins  as good  as  his  word?"
"Bveiy bit.    But  I have  never heard of
his word being good for anything."
Solitude is a matter of taste. It has
been the subject of much discussion.
Volumes have been written in praise or
condemnation of it. But perhaps the
real value of solitude has never been so
subtly aud so accurately expressed-as by
- the girl who was asked if she liked being
alone. "That depends," she answered
sweetly, "on whom I am alone with."
A smart young fellow called out to a
farmer who was sowing seed in bis field,
"Well done, old fellow, you sow ; I reap
the fruits." "Maybe you will," said the
farmer, "for I'm .sowing hemp."
"I'd like that tooth, please," said the
small boy, after the dentist had extracted
the little torment. "Certainly, my little
man. But why do you want it ?" asked
the dentist. "Well, sir," responded the
gratified boy, "I'm going to take it home
and I'm going to stuff it full of sugar.
Then I'm going to put it on a plate, and"
—with a triumphant grin—"watch it
ache."
"I didn't know he had a child." "O,
yes ; he must have one, and I suppose i'ts
at least six months old." "Ah ! You've
seen it?" "No, but when I was in his
office the other day I asked if he had any
ice water, and he said absent-mindedly :
'So him wants a jinky water, does 'ims?"
An Arkansas farmer received a j note
from a young man who had been attentive to his daughter, and which read as
follows : "Dear Sur, Wood like to astyou
for yore dorter's hand in marage. Me
and she are in luv and i think I nede a
wife. Yures, Henry." The farmer grab
bed a postal card and immediately wrote
"Friend Henry,—You don't knead awife
yu nede a spellin buke. Git I and stud}'
it a year and then write me."
