CH Similkameen.
Last year the S'ar gave the merchants
a general write-up at Cfarfstmas which
was much appreciated and this year the
same will be done Owing to the lack
of space it will necessarily be brief, but
willbe sufficient to give the riublic an
idea, of the good things to be had in the
various stores
THE  BIG STORE
T&e-^rE. Howse Co., Ltd., are this
year; carrying the largest stock of holiday-
goods since doing business in Princeton
and onejwhich would do credit to any
city establishment. Their stock of Xmas
toys, etc., is simply immense, *verv con-
ceivab'ljtgftn ihe way of heart-gladners for
the little ones of both sex being in.evi
donee And the'older folks can find
abundance of useful articles on which to
feast the eye and satisfv the taste. Their
stock of glassware, Chinaware, etc , is
complete and there is great variety to
choose from. Those looking for an\ thing

lifetime to stock up. Nuts, candies, and

j. r'. Campbkll,

shaving sets, leather hand bags, writing
desks, picture books, Lowney's chocolates, done up in artistic packages, he is
carrying a small but well assorted stock
of silverware, including cake dishes, biscuit jars, tea trays, and card receivers. A
line of solid gold pin-!, lockets, etc., as
well as silver and gun-metal watches can
be had. It would take up too much
space to fully describe all the good
things to be had here. Suffice is to say-
that were Santa Clause Pq take a peep in
at this store he would turn green with
envy.-f;i^3
THOMAS   BROS.,

•is certain that Mr. Bell aims to be abreast
of the times in modern and up-to-date
g.oods and equipment,; the installation of
a powerful gasoline lamp turns.night into
day in this commodious store. In all

THE BOARD OF TRADE
Specfal Meeting to Consider the
Resignation of Two
Members.
Board Decides to Have Banquet and
will Invite Hedley Board ta
$&•-        Coaflaberation.       v.
A special meeting of the Board of
Trade was held on Fiiday night last, and
from point of attendance it was one of
the most successful ever held. It would
seem that the only way to get the citizens
to'turn out to these meetings is just to
whisper that there is a "row'' in sight,
with.prospects of something doing, so to
speak, and a full house can be depended
on. C. K. Thomas, who was elected presi
dent at tlie~last regular meeting, occupied the chair. Mr. Thomas explained
the object of the meeting, and ac the
same time took occasion to state that he
thanked the members for the honor they
had done him, but having had the honor
on a former occasion, and being unable
to properly attend to the duties of the
office owing \o busipess reasons, he
would request the board to accept his
resignation.
Several names were proposed, and A#
Bell being the only one willing to stand
he was elected to fill the position and
took the chair.
The first business taken up was the
resignation of Mr. Wright. Mr. Kennedy
moved that it be not accepted explaining at some length the cause, of Mr.
Wright s action, and condemned the introduction into the Board of Trade of political, personal, or any other such elements, which if allowed would be the
means of defeating the purpose for which
it was fprmed- Members feeling that
these things were being used against
them would righ ly resign, and it was
the Board's business to stamp this kind
of thing out. Mr. Cook seconded the
motion and it was carried
The question of holding a banquet was
taken up and thp idea seemed to meet
with approval, it being decided to "blow
in" the entire amount of monev on hand
for thisr^purgpse. The date has not yet
been decided on. The meeting then adjourned, but not before a hearty vote of
thanks was tendered Mr. Hugh Hunter
for his public spiritedness in providing
for the use of the Board of Trade and
other functions of a public, nature an up-,
to date gaoline lamp.

HIYD POfLACHT
Editor Star—Sir: .Having heard ofthe
action of the Board of Trade in voting
the last penny in the treasurer's hands
for a banquet I was reminded of a spendthrift acquaintance who blew his last
bean on an expensive dinner, remarking
that if he must starve he would at least
have pleasant recollections of one full
stomach. The Board, by its reckless expenditure of money for a banquet that
has no significance is much in the condition of the spendthrift. Princeton has
need of every dollar in the. Board's treasury. There are a dozen ways to spend
the money required for a banquet which
would be of permanent benefit to the
town. A booklet descriptive of Princeton and district, a fire alarm bell, a sidewalk, an elevated gaoline lamp for town
lighting, a libraiy, an ad. in a large eastern daily enumerating' the resources of
the district, clearing and acquiring
ground for games, athletic sports and
races, contribution toward lighting, heating arid cleaning the hall in which the
Board meets, procuring site for hospital,
etc.,- any one of which would be in
the line of progress and development. I,
with a number of other citizens, seriously
hope that the Board will reconsider the
banquet scheme and adopt some more
progressive project for getting rid of the
funds at its disposal. Remember, the
eyes of thousands of prospective investors and homeseekers are upon Princeton
and its citizens will be weighed either
favorably or not by their public acts.
Yours truly,
PRO BONO PUBLICO.
Summers & Wardle, the meat merchants, have the finest turkeys and geese
that ever came to town. Leave your order now and be sure of getting one, for
they are going fast. *
Don't forget that the bean guessing
contest at the Big Store closes # on the
24th. A 50 ct. cash purchase entitles
you to a guess. *

If we are correctly informed Mr.
Dunsmuir will not be long in office.
How long Mr. McBride remains at
the head of the government, however, depends on the capacity of the
party chieftans to hoodwink the

we are more concerned with those
long-drawn negotiations at Tokio.
It has been announced, and we
hope it is true, that Japan .will allow no more emigration to North
America. This is very well so far
as it goes, but it cannot of itself be

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
Late reports from Grand Forks would
indicate that there is not much chance of
a settlement being affected between the
miners union and the Granby people regarding the reduction in the wage scale.
The company are willing to open up but
will only employ men who are willing
to accept the reduction. Word has Oeen
received from union headquarters at
Denver, Col., stating that the executive
board will support the miners to maintain the present scale. There i< a likelihood of trouble at the Nickle Plate mine
over the wage proposition, the union
miners imt being likely to stand for the
cut that is imminent.
A turkey shoot has been arranged to
take a few days before Xmas. One will
also be held on Dec. 31st, and the ladies
are invited to participate.
U. F. Voigt returned from a visit to
coast cities today. He reports business
there somewhat dull.
Mrs. B, S. Kennedv and children returned-today from a vis'c to the coast.
Posters and tickets are out for a grand
masquerade ball to be held on the evening of Dec. 31. This promises to be the
most successful affair of the kind yet held
here and an energetic committee is put
ting the finishing touches to the arrangements. Tickets have been placed at $2
a couple ahd be had at Campbell's drug
store and at the hotels.

that the question of the extension mi the
renewal life of timber licenses will be
one ofthe most important upon which a
decision will be arrived at.    j
