BENEDICTS WIN OUT
At   Baseball  Against   Timid
Bachelors—Some Brilliant
Playing.
Excited   Fans    Behaved   Well   and
Rooters Yelled for Joy at Sensational Flays.
On Saturday afternoon last the benedicts of Princeton defeated the bachelors
in a short but well contested g«me of
baseball by the score of 93 to 11 Our
popular ex-townsman Bill Miner officiated as referee and gave satisfactKKi. Pete
Swanson kept tab on the/'^b«re. The
umpire called the teams to the center of
the diamond and explained to the spec
tators that the contest would be four innings for a' decision, Marquis of Queens-
bury rules, hitting in clinches barred,
contestants to break clean on referee's
command. The benedicts won the toss
and elected to take the field. As they
filed out to their different positions the
fans named them the "chain-gang'! and
when the first bachelor trotted up to the
plate carrying a post maul to nunish the
sphere they promptly labelled them the
1,'spike team." The game was full of
brilliant plays a«d it was impossible to
pick any of the players for special mention. The ever : present '"Dell" Young,
although a member of the "chain-gang."
took pity on the "spikes" and assayed to
help them out with some of his celebrat-
hay-fork shoots. But the benedicts had
them hopelessly outclassed and at the
close of the fourth innings had such a
lead that Bill Miner called the game and
gave the decision to the husbands and
fathers.
Just before the game manager Asp of
the benedicts bet manager August Carlson
of the mavericks a ton of hay to a ton of
Swede turnips that his team would win.
Bill miner was appointed stake holder
and we are sorry to say got away with
the stakes.
notes op the; game.
Pete Swanson wore a pink bathing
suit, which was very becoming.
F. P. Cook appeared in a green and
gold night gown, spiked boots and carrying a long handled shovel.,
E. Waterman wore a smile and a well
arranged necktie and red stockings
The way Jim Wright ran bases would
make Tom Longboat look like a weak
sister at a church social.
Gus Johnson of the   brewery came   to
.^the-scratch with a case of efferescent hop
and cooled the fevered brows.
"Run daddy, run" and "remember
Tulameen George,'   seemed  to   be   the
popular cry of the fans,
Next Saturday afternoon there will be
a "real" game of baseball between the
pick of the players, married vs. single.
You single men keep your feet warm and
dor't fail to turn up.
■ For the benefit-of the Vancouver papers
we may say that as Bill Miner had an important engagement with the C. P. R.
he left hurriedly by special stage immediately after the game. For further im-
formation as to who won, etc., applv to

FFJZE APFLES  AND  POTATOES.
Last week the Star received a sample
of apples and potatoes from the Bromley
ranch that are worthy of mention. One
apple of the Alexandria variety, weighing
one pound and measuring 14X inches in
circumference is certainly a beauty and
would be hard to beat anywhere. The
other variety, a Cranberry Pippin, is of
good size and of excellent flavor. One
potato weighs close to three pounds and
!is as good as it looks. Just another evidence of what can be done in the agricultural line in this section. The Alexandria tree is a product of M. J Henry s
well known nursery, Westminster road,
Vancouver, whose advertisement can he
seen on page two of this paper. The potato seed also came from here. We are
exceedrrfgly grateful to Miss Bromley for
a handsome bouquet of pansies, geraniums and nasturtiums, grown in the open
and they are prize .winners in their respective class.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1907.
UP TO MR. BORDEN.
Dr. Pugsley, the lately appointed
Minister of Public Works in the
Laurier Government, in the place
of Mr. Hyman, resigned, delivered
an address at St. John on the eve
of his election that will no doubt
interest Mr. Borden, the "purity"
Conservative leader. Dr. Pugsley
stated that the Conservative party
spent over half a million dollars in;
corrupt practices to defeat Laurier}
ih 1904, and in a single constituency
a small fortune was spent to gain|
their end. We quote in part Mr.
Pugsley's speech from the St. John
Sun as follows: "Dr. Pugsley next
took up Mr. Borden's charges of
electoral purity. The Conservative
leader, he said, is going around the
country speaking as if he were entirely innocent of his own party
having spent any money. He was
willing to admit that money had
been spent in his elections. He
would not be hypocritical about it.
We air want electoral purity, but
should not act the hypocrite about
it. My view of the matter is that
it would be well for Mr. Borden to
turn his attention to his own party
first. If he himself is not willing to
telly perhaps he could get some of
his leading friends to state what
amount of money had been expended throughout Canada to secure the
return of Conservative candidates in
1904. The amount would startle
the people of this country as they
were never startled before. It might
be said he gave no evidence of this
charge. "If Mr. Borden has any
doubt about it,'' said the speaker,
"I invite him to have an action
brought against me and I will prove
it. The evidence will then be
forthcoming before the public."
The Conservatives had been playing with fire, but they were now
getting it back from the Hon. Mr.
Aylesworth and others. The best
way to get electoral purity is to try
and apply the remedy to both parties.
The Sun comments on the address as follows: A direct challenge to the Conservate leader which
he cannot afford to ignore was given
by Hon. Mr* Pugsley in the course
of his admirable discussion of Canadian political conditions last night.
For weeks Mr. Borden has. been
touring the country making scandalous accusations against the Gov-

ernment and claiming for himself
and party a monopoly of all good
political intentions and practices.
In his speeches the Libersls are
portrayed as steeped to the lips in
the grossest corruption, while all
Conservatives appear in robes of
spotless white. To a recent intimation made by Hon. A. B. Aylesworth to the effect that improper
practices had also been used in the
Conservative interests at election
times, prrctices by which Mr. Borden had profited and which were
carried on with his knowledge, the
Conservative leader retorted with
violent denunciation ofthe Minister
of Justice and a melodramatic demand for him to produce his proofs.
Now the glove has been thrown
at Mr. Borden's feet and the public
will look to see him accept thegage,
if he is as good as his professions.
In order that Mr. Borden may have
no excuse for not taking up the
challenge the Sun has accepted responsibility for the statements made
by Dr. Pugsley and published in its
columns. It now invites Mr. Borden to sue for libel that the details
may become known.

Pain everywhere, pain in the head,
painful periods, neuralgia, toothache, all
pains can be promptly stopped by a thoroughly safe little pink candy tablet,
known by druggists everywhere as Dr.
Shoop's headache tablets. Pain simply
means congestion—undue blood pressure
at the point where pain exists. Dr.
Shoop's headache tablets quickly equalize this unnatural blood pressure, and
pain immediately departs. Write Dr.
Shoop, Racine, Wis., and get a free trial
package.   Large box 25 cts.
To check a cold quickly, get from your
druggist some little candy cold tablets
called Preventics. Druggists everywhere
are now dispensing Preventics, for they
are not only safe, but decidedly certain
and prompt. Preventics contain no
quinine, no laxative, nothing harsh nor
sickening. Taken at the "sneeze stage"
Preventics will prevent pneumonia, bronchitis, la grippe, etc. Hence the name,
Preventics. Good for feverish children,
48 Preventics 25 cents. Trial boxes 5 cts.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
A change is being made in the manner
of disposing of the timber stretches owned
by the Dominion in the  Northwest and
he railway belt   in   British   Columbia.
Until recently the practice has been for
ndividuals or companies to do cruising
and undertake exploration on their own
account and then make application to
the Minister of the Interior to have the
stretches of timber land which they could
designate, advertised and put up for public competition. It is said at the department that in the past when there was not
great profits in lumbering operations,
this was a satisfactory system as it encouraged and promoted lumber operations in a part of the country where lum
ber was needed. It had the drawback of
having the choicest portion of the timber
Stretchss put up and disposed of and left
the persons who got them in a position to
control the less remunerative timber
stretches in the vicinity, as few bidders
could be obtained for them when they
were advertised and they dropped into
the hands of the first parties on the field
at low rates.
For some time the Hon. Frank Oliver
has declined to put up timber berths on
request. A new eystem is being worked
out which it is believed will give the government more return from their timber
assets and will work out for the benefit
of the consumer. It is probable that in
future the Government will do tbe cruising attd decide what lots will be put up
for competition. The berths will be arranged so the choice timber will be offered in connection with the stretches
which are less thickly wooded.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Daily trains commenced running into
Keremeos this week.
Judge Brown will preside at the County
Court here on October 19th.
During the past eight years the Standard Gil Company has made four hundred
and ninety millions of dollars, which puts
most of us into the shade more than a
hundred feet.
- At Camp McKinney 30 men are working in the Cariboo mine and mill. In
addition to gold there is a large body of
zinc ore in the Cariboo.
A branch of the E. T. bank will be
opened in Keremeos.
The early mining history of the Similkameen dates back as far as -i860, when
the Similkameen and its tributaries were
worked for placer gold. The first copper
property worked was the old Allison
mine, which was worked for a short time
and a shipment of ore sent by pack train
via the Hope trail to San Francisco;
smelter returns gave about 37 per cent,
copper, but owing to the heavy expense
incidental to mining, transportation and
treatment, development work was stopped and nothing has been done with the
property since that time. The old company is still in existence, and is now
being developed under the management
of J. Oswald Coulthard, and it may not
be long before it takes its place among
'the copper producing mines of B. C.
The district was not heard from again
until the days of the placer excitement
at Granite creek in 1885, when several
claims produced large quantities of gold
and platinum. From that time until
1895 placer mining was the only industiy
the country possessed, several hydraulic
companies operating the more inaccessible portions had large plants. *- * *
In the summer of 1898 a great number of
prospectors were attracted to the Simil
kameen. This was followed by the big
rush of 1899. Mineral claims of ore
totalling 1194 were recorded tn two years.

TOWN OF PRINCETON SEVEN YEARS AGO
Interesting News Items  Clipped   from   the
M Star of March, 1900.
The Gulliford cottage on Vermillion
avenue is now finished.
Chas. Harris, our artist-assayer, has
completed the purchase of two fine lots
on Vermillion avenue and intends building thereon.
Mr. G. Murdoch has completed the
fencing of his property on Billiter avenue
He intends bringing his wife and family
to Princeton, and is building a handsome
residence for their occupation.
Dr. Whillans' office is now completad.
The doctor has a commodious consulting
room and surgery on the ground floor,
the upper story being used as a spacious
living room.
A. E Howse has started the construction of a large new store on Harold avenue. Business at the Howse store is
rushing, and it will not be surprising if
the new store house is followed by a new
store.
Mr. Ernest Waterman, agent   for   the
Princeton Townsite Co, will build a
bungalow cottage at the extreme end of
Vermillion avenue, on his return from
California, where he and his wife have
been spending the winter.
J. Charles Mcintosh, Princeton's first
lawyer, intends erecting a commodious
office building adjoining the Star office
on Bridge street, and will be glad to rent
a suite of offices to some other enterprising legal luminary. Charlie evidently
courts opposition on the grounds that it
takes two to make a quarrel.
Cap. Henry has secured the contract
for ex-Governor Dewdney's villa and
stable. The "Governor" hae decided to
make his home in our section and is
building a handsome villa in one of
Princeton's future suburbs. He has already given a hint of invitations to a
house-warming and everyone is looking
forward to the day when the "Governor"
will come to stay.
