Prominent citizens were so incensed at
this invasion of "the heathen that a deputation was formed and escorted the Mongolians to the C. P. R. boat and sent
^back. Not content with voting against
the 8-hour bill Mr. Shatford seems now,
by the importation of cheap coolies, to
have a particular grudge against white
labor. In contrast with the S. O. Co.
the Chemainus Lumber Co. has recently
discharged all Chinamen in its employ
deciding that white labor is cheaper and
better in the long run.

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
It is reported that 30,000 railwav laborers win be shipped from the %ast to the
Northwest and B. C. bv the various rail-'
way companies constructing road.
Sunday school for the warmer season
will be held in the court house, beginning on Sunday, April 1st, at 2:30 p.m.
Everybody invited. Singing practises
for children during week. y
Application will be made by Geo. Mc-
Coskery for a hotel license at the sitting
of the license commissioners to be held
on April 6th at Hedley. The applicant
will erect a hotel on the property adjoining Cook & Co's on Bridge St. and will
name it the "Tulameen."
Dr. and Mrs. Whillans of Hedley were
yisitors to Princeton last Sunday, returning Monday afternoon.
Mrs. A. Bell arrived home Wednesday
from Vernon where she had been visiting
for a few weeics.
T. Prevost, mining engineer and expert
of New York. {Craved on Wednesday and
proceeded to Voigt'sjcamp, Copper mountain.
Judge Murphy of Granite cree"k is in
town on mining business and incidentally
having a good time with a host of tilli-
cums. In spite of scores of years the
Judge prances around like a filly in fly
time stopping here and there to relate
some comical episode in his life as frontiersman. His political leanings have
received such a rude shock recently by
certain disclosures at the capital that he
stands strictly ifi "de middle ob de road."
Happy days and many of them, Judge!
Highest record price for Granby stock
was reached recently when $11 50 was
paid by some heavy buyers in New York.
It is reported that Granby will shortly be
put on a 12 percent, dividend basis. The
production of Granby capper, it is generally understood, now costs 9 cents per
lb., which would give net profits of
51175.000 monthly in an 18 cent market,
or annual profits of about $2,000,000.
Evidently, there is wealth in copper.
A. H. Hart, of Portland, is expected in
Princeton about the middle of April when
it is presumed development work on a
large scale will begin on the Rising Sun
at Granite creek.
It will be known in a day or two
whether the B. C. Copper Co. will resume operations on Copper Mountain.
A meeting of the Sunset officials is being
held at Grand Forks the result of which
will determine the future of the mine so
far as the B. C. people are concerned.
Fred. Keffer, manager of the B. C.
Copper Co., was at the Apex group re
cently inspecting the exploratory work
on this promising property.
For tne month of February the total
tonnage of ore shipped in the Boundary
amounted to over 105,000 tons. The
number ot men employed in the pro
duction and reduction of this big tonnage
is over 2,000. The payroll for the month
was $200,000. The prospects of the Similkameen are even brighter than the
Boundary which has very low grade ore.
AWAITS INSTRUCTIONS.
D. Morrison arrived home from New
York, Halifax and Toronto on Wednesday^ having been about a month absent.
But for a severe cold and an attack of
measles he enjoyed the trip. While in
New York Mr. Morrison was directly informed that President Hill of the Great
Northern officially announced that the
track would be laid to Princeton next
January. As to the resumption of work
on the Sunset Mr. Morrison had no definite information to impart. He expected
full instructions from Greenwood, where
General Manager Underwood is, within
the next 48 hours. If the B.C. Copper
Co. accepts the sale terms of the Sunset
people Messrs. Morrison and Turner will
retain their respective positions here,
otherwise they will remove to either
Eholt or Greenwood with their families.
The latter 'would be unwelcome tidings
to Princetonians both from business and
social standpoints.
READY FOR THE FRAY! CANUCKS WILL UNITE
Liberals Organize for the Approaching Dissolution of
the Government.
Princeton Liberal Association Formed,
j Under Gratifying Auspices—
. Efficient Organizer.
A well attended meeting of Liberals
was held in the board of trade rooms on
Wednesday night at which the organizer,
R. W. Grigor of Rossland was in attendance. He urged the formation of a
local Liberal association as a means of
strengthening and solidifying the party
and rendering effective aid to parliamentary candidates. It would also be the
official channel through which local
needs would be advocated and the patronage of this section distributed by Liberal
representatives. The various local associations throughout the Similkameen
will have the privilege of sending dele
gates to a districjbfcouncil, the place of its
first meeting being fixed by the organizer. The Liberal party is- fortunate in
having Mr. Grigor accept the arduous
task of organization for a territory an
empire in extent and his ability to unite
dissentient forces into one systematic
whole is fully appreciated in many places
where local difficulties existed.
The Princeton Liberal Association was
organized and the following officers installed on Wednesday night, the election
and appointment of other officers and
committeemen being deferred until the
adjourned meeting on Thursday, 29th
inst.: Honorary President, Duncan Ross,
M.P.; President, W. C. Lyall; Secretary,
Lewis Thomson ; Executive Committee^
J. R. Campbell, J. G. Macdonell, W.
Broadfoot, Geo. Aldous, H. Webb, Sain
Spencer, J. M. Wright and officers of the
association.
At the close of the proceedings a vote of
thanks was tendered Organizer Grigor
and John Love of Hedley for having contributed so largely to the success of the
meeting and for their loyal efforts in behalf of Liberalism generally.
DEATH OF MRS. BARNARD.
It will be learned with very sincere
regret by many friends here of the death
of Mrs. E. C. Barnard at St. Paul on the
1st March, resulting from a surgical operation. Deceased lady was beloved wife
of E. C. Barnard, of the U. S. boundary
survey, who was here for some months
last year in connection therewith. Mrs.
Barnard was charming in personality and
won the esteem of all who met her. For
her husband expressions of deepest sympathy are offered in this hour of his sore
affliction. '  -
Society for the Promotion of
Equal Rights and Love
of Country.
Organization Meeting will be Held
and Foundation Laid in Broad
National Spirit.
The organization of a society for the
further promotion of patriotic national
sentiment, mutual help and loyalty to
each other in all things pertaining to
their welfare was suggested some four or
five years ago by Canadians resident in
Princeton and vicinity. More or less
dormant since the time named the question of organization has been recently
revived and seems now to have assumed
tangible jrfape in the annoucement that
a meetrafPwill be held on Friday night,
30th instT All who are Canadians by
birth or naturalization are invited to attend. The promoters of the idea have
in view the formation of a society on
lines similar to those of the Sons of
England in this province. The scope bf
the society as intimated to the Star will'
include alt&fhe benefits, governmental"
patronage and favor which is the due of"
Canadians, without trespassing on the
rights of others, and will aini to secure
fair recognition of the claims of birthright and naturalization. The full purpose of the society will be more definitely
stated in the constitution. So far as \
known this is the first society of the
kincL ever mooted in Canada and its
growth will be watched with keen interest. It is hoped" that the membership
clause will be broad enough to admit the
fair sex. 5*¥?
RAILROAD SIGNALS.
Engineer Amburn has pitched camp in
town with his party of railway surveyois
and is engaged revising and relocating
the line hereabouts.
There is no doubt that the C. P. R. will
build from Midway to Penticton this
summer and a beginning has been made
by Contractor Gallagher on a 5-mile
stretch of grade west of Midway.
Large tie contracts, amounting to $32,-
500, have been let along the V. V. & E-
between Midway and Oroville. The ties.
are all hand made by axemen who receive
12 cents each, the contractor laying them
down on the right-of-way for 24 cents
apiece. Tie timber is not very plentiful
about Princeton but up the rivers' sources
theie is no lack.
From Keremeos to the Boundary line
work is almost at a standstill for want of
men.   Contractors Carlson, Burns & Jordan and Johnson & Welch are expected-1
in the Similkameen as soon as they have |
finished near Midway.

FOREWARNED, FOREARMED.
As the murky clouds ou the horizon   accompanied   by   the low, distant rumblings  of thunder indicate
the  approach   of storm, so  do the
stealthy movements of the Conservative  government  at Victoria foreshadow the  outbreak of a political
•campaign   leading ud to the culminating storm   of a  general election
day.     The  collectors  of votes for
various   districts   in   the   province
have   been  flitting   back and forth
to the capital, many faithful  tories
have been recently   appointed commissioners   for     taking    affidavits
under the Provincial Elections Act,
the large  increase  in the expenditure of public   money  and   the oft
repeated    statement  of   prominent
Conservatives and press that a general election  was not contemplated
this year.    All these things indicate
that  the  elections   will   be precipitated  and  come  as  a thief in the
night.
The last provincial elections
should be a warning to Liberals.
Then the polling da}' was moved
fromthe date originally set to one
thirty days sooner, By so doing
Premier JVfcBride proved that he
was an accomplished trickster and
would stifle public discussion of his
policy to gain a snap verdict from
the voter. The man who will thus
juggle with dates will connive with
grafters, a bloated railway corporation and a millionaire speculator to
thwart the honest intentions and
convictions of the people at the
polls or rob them of their heritage
of land or other natural wealth.
The Liberals have wisely determined not to be outflanked or
eaught in any ruse of the enemy.
Organizers of both parties are in
the field, the first to visit Princeton (this week) being a Liberal.
Whether the elections take place
three months or a year hence every
Liberal worthy of the name will
use the talents given him in defense
of his party's principles and in the
conversion of others to the view
that a loose and profligate government should no longer be entrusted
with the destinies of this vast and
naturally rich province.
Never have Liberals been supplied with a better quality of campaign  ammunition   on the eve of a
great  and  decisive  victory.     The
recent land scandal in   which grafters, male  and   female, received the
price of their   iniquitous  collusion
with a   member of the government
is shot and shell sufficient  to cause
the downfall  of the  strongest tory
cabinet.    The  utter depravityof a
ministry  which will associate with
and seek the counsels  of renegade
mongers in questionable practises is
cap and fuse that will cause the explosion of the McBride  administration.     This  administration  which
manufactures  a  surplus with " hot
air " and   makes a   farce of justice
in the Fernie ballot box affair offers
an easy mark  for the Liberal  gunners.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
If British Columbia is ever to receive better terms from  the Dominion it must come through the intercession of a friendly provincial government.    The  present  first   Conservative  government   of this province  is  decidedly   antagonistic to
the Liberal government at   Ottawa
and can accomplish nothing toward
obtaining    an   increased    subsidy.
The taxpayers   of the province are
losers   by   the   friction existing between the province and the Dominion.    The   removal  of this friction
can   only   be  accomplished  at   the
ballot box. I
Premier McBride insists, at the
cost of his reputation as a public
man, which of course is not worth
a great deal, that the government
in the Kaien island deal acted directly with the G.T.P. Co. If that
be so, how was it that Mr. Anderson negotiated with Mr. Morse for
the sale of the property to the G.
T.P. for the sum of $40,000.—Victoria Times.
A certified copy of the  reasons
that have led the   Hon. Chas. Wilson   to   resign   from  the   McBride
cabinet is not obtainable ; but close
political   friends  of his assert with
emphasis   that   he   disapproves  of
the course of the government in the
Kaien    island     and   Columbia   &
Western   thefts,   and   that he is incensed at the failure of the government to collect the $475,000 of taxes
that are overdue from the Canadian
Pacific Railway Co. and A. Heinze.
Mr. Wilson's departure is a distinct
loss to the government and it is not
believed to be possible for a ministerial  supporter  to  be returned in
any  important  constituency   to fill
the vacant  post.    The  resignation
of Mr. Green is believed  to be imminent and Mr. McBride's own resignation, which will mean the disappearance of the last fluttering rag
of the  Petticoats,   cannot   be  long
delayed.—Vancouver World.

The Missus—Mary Arm, please explain
to me how 'tis that I saw you kissing a
young man in the kitchen last night
The Maid—Sure,. I dunno how it is,
ma'am, onless yez were lookin' through
the kayhole.
"Come now," said the little sergeant-
at arms, "you've got to go out, ye know."
"No," said Casey ; "I'll not go outonliss
ye force me agin me will, an' ye can't do
that onliss I'm willin'."
"I'm glad Billy had the sense to marry
a settled old niaidy said Grandma Wink-
um at the wedding. "Why, grandma?"
asked the son. "Well, gals is hity-tity,
and widders is kinder overrulin' and up-
settin', but old maids is thankful and
willin' to please !"
A vinegar-faced old woman, travelling
on top of an I.C.C. car, remonstrated
in vaitfwith the big Irishman who was
distributing his tobacco smoke among the
outside passengers.. He listened without,
making retort, till the woman, losing.her
patience, exclaimed : "You old brute, if
you were my husband, I'd give you poison !" Giving a complacent puff to his
pipe, Pat looked at her steadily and replied : "Begorra, if I was your husband
I'd gladly take it!"
"Harry, what is an Indian's wife
called ?" asked the teacher. "A squaw."
"Correct ; now what is an Indian's baby
called?"    "A squawler."
Jim—Bothered by a piano next door?
Well, I have a dog which always howls
when my wife sings, and it stops her.
Jam—Lend me that dog? Jim—Can't
spare it.
Algy—Do you think,* my love, that
your father will consent to our marriage ?
Angely—Of course, papa wilt be very
sorry to lose me, darling. Algy—But I
will say to him that instead ofllosing a
daughter he will gain a son. Angely—I
wouldn]t do that love if you really want
me. Papa has three such sons living at
home now, and he's a little bit touchy on
that point.
Snosher—What kind of a specialist
would you consult for a pain in the back?
Josher—A bacteriologist, of cour e !
