A Coal Smelter is a likely possibility at Princeton-
Courage, in the dark hours, points to the noonday of success.
The total of money orders and postal notes paid at Princeton P.O. last year was $4877, or nearly $400 more than the next highest office in the
Similkameen, which Indicates the growing importance of this section as compared with other places—Natural resources are unequalled.

PENTICTON LABOR TROUBLE.
The removal of the Chinese engaged
by managing-director Shatford, M.P.P.,
and his brother, of the Southern Okanagan Land Co., has resulted in the trial
and sentence of six of the forty or fifty
who were instrumental in having the
Chinks deported from Penticton. Three
justices of the peace occupied the bench
the presiding justice being Mr. Wade,
late postmaster of the town. The finding of the J's P. was a fine of $25 or in
default 30 days in Kamloops jail. Two
of the accused paid the fine, the other
four preferring jail to "laying down to
Shatford."
The magistrates' 'clemency* gave the
accused a week in which to pay the fine
but it was not accepted. On leaving
court the crowd cheered prisoners and
quickly subscribed enough money to pay
all expenses, including return fares from
Kamloops.
It is not probable that the last of this
cause celebre has been heard, since a
vital principle affecting workingmen and
others is at issue by the introduction of
a low grade of labor which tends to de
preciate the white man's wage and opportunity for home-building. It is rumored
that one of the trial magistrates is interested in a pecuniary way in the S. O. L.
Co., which, if true, would quash the
verdict and possibly enab.e the prisoners
to recover heavy damages.
Meanwhile the "Chinks" have been
brought back and put to work, and according to newspaper report Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., will keep them there if it
takes the whole British army to protect
them.
CIRCULAR FROM POLICE.
A circular from the Provincial Police
department has been received at this
office in which it is stated that the mails
are being used to spread indecent postal
picture cards throughout the land. It is
a criminal offence for any person to make
such cards or offer them for sale. Section 179 of the criminal code of Canada
says : "Every one is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to two years' im-
plisonment who knowingly, without lawful justification or excuse, manufactures,
sells, or exposes for sale or to public view',
or distributes or circulates, or causes to
be distributed or circulated, any obscene
book, or other printed, typewritten, or
otherwise written matter, or any picture
photograph, model or other object tending to corrupt morals." Provincial police
have been instructed to fake proceedings
against all persons exposing for sale such
cards.
T. J. Smith and J. M. Robinson came
ovjer from Summerland last Saturday on
their way to Nicola. Mr. Smith is interested in coal in the Similkameen and
Nicola and Mr. Robinson is the success*
ful fruit land and townsite promoter in
the Okanagan valley.
NICOU TO PRINCETON
Railroad May be Extended to
Similkameen Before End
of Year.
Strong Combination of Two Big Railway Corporations with Termini
at Vancouver.
There is considerable speculation regarding the intentions of the C.P.R. to
build from Nicola to Princeton this year.
H.J. Cambie, chief engineer in B. C. of
the C.P.R. is making an examination of
the proposed route and his report will
settle the question of building, j Nothing
however, can be definitely announced
until President Shaughnessy arrives from
England this week when, no doubt, his
decision will be made public.
The Canadian Northern and the Great
Northern have joined forces in opposition
to the C.P.R. and the former will reach
Vancouver via the Yellowhead Pass from
Edmonton using links in the Hill system
to get into that city.
Chief Engineer Hogeland of the Great
Northern says that rail laying will begin
from Midway on the 1st of May and that
progress will average a mile a day. He
thinks 100 miles of the road west of
Midway will have steel not later than
August.
The townsite of Princeton is now a
network of railway survey stakes planted
by Mr. Amburn's party which is working
in this vicinity.
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
The meeting of Canadians last Friday
night for the purpose of organizing a
society was not as well attended as the
importance of the object demanded.
Other attractions may have caused the
slight attendance and another meeting
will be necessary at some more convenient season. Speaking of a society reminds us that no lodge of any of the
popular societies has been established
here. What are the Freemasons, Oddfellows and Foresters thinking about?
Paul Laplante, of Colville, Wash'., was
in town this week intending to make investment in real estate and farm lands.
He is a general contractor and will engage in business here should he locate.
Last year at this time lawn tennis was
in full swing, this year baseball is all the
"go" and next year it will likely be automobile polo. There are enough snappy
young men in this town to keep the first
two games going and the young ladies
will no doubt, take a hand at tennis if
a court(ing) is provided.
Wedding rumors are abroad. The Star
likes to be up-to-date and would be
obliged if someone will give further particulars of the two coming events.
IT IS A "TRUE COAL"
Princeton Coal Analyzed and
Tested in Geological Department, Ottawa.
No Doubt Now as to Its Excellent
Qualities and the Quantity is
Almost Unlimited.
When the Geological Department sent
Sidney Ells to Princeton last fall he was
instructed to procure samples of the coal
from the mine here for various laboratory
tests and analyses and also to collect such
information as would enable the Department at Ottawa to make an accurate report on the 'measure' of this district.
Through no fault of Mr. Ells important
information is lacking. to make a com
plete report, which will be published this
year. The laboratorial investigations of
the coal have been most thorough and
the result makes it of very high quality.
In future it will be classed as a "true
coal" having the qualities of age and the
necessary properties to constitute a first
class coal.
PERRY-HALL.
From the Napanee, Ont., Beaver of
March 23 : "A quiet but very pretty wedding was consummated at the home of
the bride's mother, Mrs. J. Rud. Perry,
on Wednesday at 2 p.m. Owing to the
recent death of the bride's grandmother
only members and relatives of the family
and a few friends were present. The contracting parties were Miss Madeleine
Augusta Perry and Mr. Edwin Barr Hall
of Princeton, B.C. The bride, who was
given away by her uncle, W. Tempieton,
was becomingly attired in a Dresden silk
dress with chiffon and lace trimming and
wore a cream leghorn hat trimmed with
pink roses and ribbon and carried a
shower bouquet of white sweet peas.
Miss Pearl Perry, the bride's sister, was
maid of honor, while little Miss Violet
Perry was flower girl, the groom being
supported by C. Templeton, The bride's
going away gown • was of navy blue,
trimmed with black braid and Persian
velvet and blue sailor hat to match.
"The bride is one of Napanee's most
popular daughters and the fortunate
groom is to be congratulated on his ex
cellent choice. The bride was the recipient of a beautiful and costly array of
presents. The groom's present to the
bride was a handsome gold bracelet set
with amethysts; to the bridesmaid, a gold
pin set with amethysts ; to the best man,
a topaz stick pin, and to the little flower
girl a silver necklace. The happy couple took the train for their home in the
far west amid showers of rice and best
wishes from a host of friends. They will
spend a few days at Toronto, Winnipeg,
Brandon, Regina (with the bride's uncle
Commissioner Perry, N.W.M.P.) and Calgary, en route."
Mr. and Mrs. Hall arrived in Princeton
last Sunday evening by special conveyance from Penticton. They are the recipients of many congratulations from
fellow citizens and are at present snugly
ensconced at Hallhurst, their pretty suburban home.
WHO BROUGHT THE RAILWAY?
Editor Star—Sir: "White-Eyed"
Hogan, the railroad contractor, came up
from the Boundary yesterday. He says
he saw a little man with a foreign complexion trying to tote a railroad on his
back up through the Similkameen valley.
The job looked so big and hopeless for so
small a man to carry through that Hogan
advised him to throw it down and allow
a big fellow named Hill to pack it the
balance of the way.
But the little man, although sweating
at the nose like a woodpecker, refused to
put down the load, for, said he, "I promised the country that I would bring the
railroad in and now I am working 12
hours a day to fulfil that pledge. If it
was not for the long hours that I have to
work, myself, on this job, I would have
voted for the eight-hour shift."
"Here," said Hogan, as he produced
his flask, "take a drop of this, it will
lighten the load." "I am not looking
for light loads," said the little man, I expect to carry the country when I get
through with this." "Then take the
whole flask," said Hogan, "you will need
it." But the little man declined, saying
that he "done all of his work on cold
water." "Bedad then," said Hogan,
"that is the reason your work is so
sloppy," and Hogan left him in disgust."

HANDY PROSPECTOR'S TOOL.
James McMahon, of Enderby, has invented a prospector's 'combination tool'
which will greatly reduce the weight and
bulk of a prospector's outfit of tools.
The Progress of that town describing it,
says the invention is in the shape of a
single head, having at one end a pick,
and the opposite end so constructed that
a variety of tools can be attached thereon
in a moment. To permit of this the head
is recessed, and the various tools are provided with a neck, terminating in an enlargement of circular form, which enlargement is adapted to rest in the recess
in the head. The tool is held in place
by a set screw. The weight of an- outfit
of separate tools is about 35 pounds,
while the combination set weighs but
8}4 pounds and as to cost there will be a
saving of one-third. It is proposed to
put the tool on. the market in three forms.
Thought intended mainly for prospectors
it will' be found' useful for trail and road-
makers, gardeners and farmers as it contains an.adze, axe, hammer, mattock and
pick,.

THE CHINESE RACKET.
From information at hand it is
not doubted that the law has been
meted out to certain citizens of
Penticton " with a vengeance " for
having taken part in the Chinese
expulsion on the 21st ult. The,
trial proceedings have' not been
received at this hour (Wednesday
morning) but enough is known to
form a reasonable conception of this,
now historic case in its cause and
its effect. Unusual interest attaches;
to the incident from the fact that a
legislator and representative of the
people of the Similkameen is co-
responsible for the importation of
a..very objectionable class of labcr
among the white, civilized and pro
gressive residents in or about Penticton. As a public man and managing director of a large and pros-
' perous corporation, the Southern
Okanagan Land Co., Mr. Shatford,
M.P.P., daringly opposed the well
known wishes of workingmen and
business men generally and drew
upon himself the justifiable criticism
of an affronted and injured community. 'ftHs
The employment of a. gang of
Chinese by the S. O. L. Co., while a
perfectly legal business affair, provoked a known-'strong social resent-'
m'ent into action among many respectable citizens of Penticton.
They quietly and without any riotous demonstration whatsoever, and
as the Star is informed, without
even intimidation,:invited the Chinese to return from whence they
Came—to .which they peaceably,
without opposition and apparently
of their own will and accord consented. For merchants and others
in business and for poor white men
dependent on a fair day's wage for
a living their attitude toward the
objectionable Chinks was most moderate and as such commendable.
The removal of Chinese from other
places has often been accompanied
with violence and force but in the
present instance there was absence
of both. In only a few instances
"in this province have prosecutions
with attendant fine or imprisonment
been enforced for the exclusion of
Chinese from any locality and it is
a generally recognized right of citizens  of  this  free  country to  per
emptorily expel undesirable characters of any color, without bodily
injury, for the protection of social
respectability or the prevention of
harm to existing trade and,financial
conditions.
The presence of any number of
heathens in any civilized community is a menace to the social well
being of the people and injures
trade to the extent of depriving
white labor consumers of the means
to earn a living. A heathen will
live in huddled quarters and on
food that would famish a civilized
person. As a well informed politician, supposed guide and friend
of the workingman, whose vote he
is desirous of, Mr. Shatford offered
a gratuitous insult to the community by preferring non-voting Mongolians to those who were full citizens and exercised the right of the
ballot. He need not hope to palm
off any excuse for his conduct in
this matter. It is without parallel
or precedent, and it is not the first
time that the. .managers of this big
corporation have tried to do things
over the heads of the people. The
surreptitious removal of the post
office a year ago is well recollected
and requires no further comment.
In view-- of Mr. Shatford's attitude on the Eight-Hour Smelter
Bill and his pro-Chinese conduct
the workingmen and business men
of Penticton who have been fined
or imprisoned, acted under excep-
t'onal provocation and mitigating
circumstances.' In the opinion of
conscientious laymen based on reliable information the case should
have been dismissed and thus saved
Mr. Shatford a very awkward situation and the accused a very harsh
if not unwarranted sentence.
CERTIFICATE OF THE REGISTRA
TION OF AN EXTRA^PROVIN-
CIAL COMPANY.
" Companies Act, 1897."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
■ Chief Justice Hunter has recently
done what the McBride government
shirked the responsibility of doing.-
He decided that the Midway &
Vernon Railway Co. was fully entitled to the government subsidy
which, owing to the influence of a
great railway corporation which has
always stood in the way of opening
up the Similkameen and other portions of the province, was delayed
and deprived contractors and laborers of their money for months.
How long are the people of this
province to suffer a corporation-
ridden, Socialist-fearing government ? Not until the Liberals are
given an opportunity to establish
stable government will there be any
change. The Midway & Vernon
will how be completed and no
thanks to the McBride administration.
Liberalism is'the fashion now in
politics. From one end of the
British empire to the other it is in
vogue. Soon B C. will fall in line
and then the empire will get a boost
to be remembered.
I hereby certify that the " Oregon &
British Columbia Mining and Developing
Co., Ltd.," 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 Nevada & California railroad wanders about a bit in the mountains, and its
trains go at a leisurely rate. A mining
man who travels the road much tells of
this illuminating incident regarding an
eastern visitor on the train "He called
the Conductor," relates the miner, "while,
he was passing down the aisle, and said :
"Conductor, how far is it to Hawthorne ?"
" 'Fifty miles,' said the conductor. "Only
fifty?" repeated the passenger. "You
been on this road very long ?"    "Twenty-
- five year's, said the conductor. " 'Is that
so?" said the passenger. "Is this your
second trip?" "Then the conductor
wauted to fight."
This is one of Bourke Cockran's Irish
- stories: "There was an Irish schoolmaster who was examining a class in geog-
rophy one day. 'Now my lad,'he said
to a clever little chap, 'tell us what latitude is.' The clever little chap smiled
and winked. " 'Latittude?' he said;
'Oh, sir, there's none o' that in Ireland.
Sure, the English don't allow us any,
sir!'"
Patient (to nurse)—Will you be my
wife when I recover? Nurse—Certainly.
Patient—Then you love me ? Nurse—Oh
no, that's merely part of the treatment
1 must keep my patients cheerful I promised this morning" to run away with a
man who had lost both his legs !
A Bostonian was talking about the late
Henry Harland, and said : "Harland was
a graceful, gallant soul, even in his boyhood days he turned the prettiest compli'
ments. In his boyhood he studied Latin
under a charming young lady. This
young lady, calling him up in class one
morning, said : 'Henry name some of
the chief beauties of education.' The
boy smiling into his teacher's pretty
eyes, answered : "Schoolmistresses "
