SUNSET PROSPECTS.
It is reported that Smith Curtis has
been made managing director of the
South Yale Copper Co. owning the Sunset group on Copper mountain. Mr.
Curtis has recently bonded the Oro De-
noro in the Boundary to the B.C. Copper
-Co. It is believed that he will conduct
the affairs of the company to a successful issue and that a transfer of the property, already on foot, may be effected
soon. The Sunset is one of the best developed properties in the Similkameen
and it would be a boon to the wheJe
countrj- if it were put on a producing
basis. In the hands of an energetic company the Sunset would, beyond doubt,
prove a moneymaker equal to anything
in. southern B.C,
PREHISTORIC MAN.
Editor Star—Sir: Mounds of a peculiar shape dot the valley of the Otter
and people have generally ascribed their
formation to glacial action, while others
have thought they were the handiwork
of a prehistoric race whose business it
was to build mounds- in the river valleys
to perpetuate their fondness for labor—
the Swedes are supposed to be their de-
sceridants.
But all doubt as to what the mounds
were intended for has been set at rest by
the recent discovery by Prof Riddle in
the tnounjl at Otter Flat of a huge skeleton'. Which goes to show that the
mounds, like the pyramids, were used as
burial places for t£ue-xulers of a forgotten
age. The head measurement of this prehistoric monster is 26X inches, while
that of the ordinary man of our rimes is
but 21*4 inches (except in cases of
swelled heads, such as officials are sometimes afflicted with, then they are much
larger.) The jaw of this monster b.ead
is 6X inches across at the base. The
teeth are in a good state of preservation
and look as if when assisted by the in*
dicated H.P. of the jaw they might even
worry through a piece of our spring beef,
or set the obstructions offered by the
grub of a mining boarding house at defiance The eyes were set obliquely in
the head. No doubt this was a wise provision of nature for the protection and
^ preservation of early man. For, at the
time he inhabited the earth, monsters of
the reptillian family roamed both the
air and land in search of prey (notably
the pteranodon and the dinosaur) and it
behooved man to look two or three ways
for safety at the same time when they
were around as they were as rapacious as
modern syndicates.
Professor Riddle thinks that when this
ancient specimen of the human race
roamed through the Tulameen and Otter
valleys he must have stood at least ten
feet in height with a stretch of arm that
could reach through a modern fence and
take in the second row of corn.   The

VICTORIA DAY SPORT
Princeton vs. Hedley Baseball
Match was Won by
Home Team.
Game was Keenly Contested and Won
by Score of 13 to 15—Very
Happy Day.
Weather conditions were ideal on Victoria day' for the observance of a time-
honored event which is perpetuated in
memory of our late beloved Queen and
her birthday. The 24th of May, 1819,
will long live in the hearts of loyal subjects throughout the empire as giving
birth to a wile and affectionate sovereign,
who died January 22, 1901, at the advanced age of 82 years.
Princeton donned its best attire on
Victoria day and the surrounding hills
loaned their richest garb of gieen for the
occasion. Hedley, with its usual friendship, joined hands with the "'old town"
In sport and dance, while from Granite
"creek, Otter valley, Wolf creek and the
nearby sections numbers came to participate in the merrymaking. The baseball
game was the chief attraction and was
much enjoyed ty the spectators. A
much more extensive programme of
sports could have been provided but the
proximity of Dominion day and the impromptu nature of the arrangements for
the 24th somewhat deterred effort. The
committee, however, are to be congratulated on the success of the day's ce.ebra-
tion.
The dance given by St. Cuthbert's
guild at night was well attended, the
net proceeds of which with the demand
for ice cream gave a handsome profit to
the ladies. The guild was disappointed
in procuring a violinist for the dance, a
vital necessity for devotees of the art
terpsichorean.
The baseball match in the afternoon
was an evenly contested game resulting in a well deserved victory for Princeton. The score was 15 to 13 and was the
cause of considerable currency being exchanged between the two towns. Barring a couple of innings whenPrince-
ton's pitching staff weakened, the home
team played excellent ball and if the
boys will only practise they will always
be able to uphold their colors with credit
on the diamond. The brunt of the game
for the home team was borne by the
battery, Macdonell and Lundy, who did
effective work throughout. Campbell
and Scott made some really brilliant
play. Manyerrors jwergjnj-d«jonboth
sides. These can only be avoided by
persistent practise. For the Hedley team

made rattling good play and caused the

NEW COAL SMELTER
Tested at Pilot Bay gives Proof
of Filling Expectations
of Inventors.
Ores and Coal of Princeton District
Favorably Spoken of for the
New Treatment.
Ernest Waterman returned on Monday
from a visit to the coal mines at Fernie
and the Pilot Bay smelter. He had many
interrogations about Princeton and the
Similkameen generally, most of which
came from persons who have been watching this district in its struggle for railway transportation. Mr. Waterman was
a guest of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.
being courteously shown over their extensive coal mines at the various workings and the large coking plant in Fernie.
He was much impressed with the extent
of the operations of the company in land
and coal, and admired the perfected organization and management of so great
a concern.
At Pilot Bay Mr. Waterman observed
the double blast Blanchard-Williams coal
smelting furnace, an invention which is
likely to supersede the old process. The
principle is so simple that it commends
itself to smeltermen and the results so
far are very satisfactory. The manager
of the Pilot Bay smelter is sanguine of
the final and complete success of the
double blast furnace when some of the
minor details are perfected by experiment. The class of ore treated at Pilot
Bay is not favorable for testing the merits
of the furnace, the extreme heat generated being better adapted for low grade
copper ores rather than zinc. ' The manager of the smelter expresses a firm belief that the ores and coal in and about
Princeton are well suited for the purposes
of the double blast furnace and he will
make tests of samples sent from here to
further confirm that belief.
Mr. Waterman states that the Vermilion Forks Co. will soon -begin the development of their coal mine on an extensive scale by driving tunnel work and
sinking an air shaft. It is the intention
of the company to be in a position to
meet all demands for coal when the railroad reaches Princeton.
sjf    ERRORS CORRECTED:
Editor Star—Sir : Will you kindly
insert the following:
" When a man is down give him a thrust,
Trample the beggar into the dust."
This seems to be the aim of the
veracious editor of the Hedley Gazette
when he writes slanderously of an unfortunate man of whom be knows nothing
save that he is accused of. assisting in
holding n/a CTP\R. train.
It i"» usual to consider a man innoo
until he is proved guilty, and in common
justice this man is entitled to that consideration, but the editoi of the Gazette
seems to think meet to " trample the
beggar into the dust " and cover him up
with malicious lies. He writes thus:
I Billy Dunn whom the writer sent tQ
Kamloops under the Vagrancy act,
worked for some time at the Nickel Plate
mine, and when he did not work he
loafed at Hedley." This is a. downright
falsehood. Billy Dunn was a man who
always worked and worked hard for an
honest living, but I do not think that he
ever worked at the Nickel Plate mine.
When not working he hunted, trapped,
and prospected but never was a loafer.
He prospected on the Ashnola and discovered some claims in which Mr.
Rodgers holds interests. As Billy Dunn
or John Grell had the misfortune to lose
his mother when he was two years old,
his father placed him in a Catholic Orphanage where he remained till he was
twelve when he was adopted by a man
named Dunn who gave him the name of
Billy Dunn—it was in this way he got
two names, or as you put it in the Star,
"an alias." I have known Billy Dunn
well for the last seven years, and during
that time have never known him guilty
of a mean or dishonest action, and others
who have known him for fifteen years
say the same. Kind hearted, impulsive,
reckless and sometimes inspired by a
dare-devil spirit, Billy Dunn may have
been drawn into a scheme to hold up the
C.P.R., but not for plunder nor greed of
gain, for he would have given his last
dollar or shared his last crust with any
man poorer than himself. I ask for
justice to an unfortunate man and that
even if he be guilty of one crime, that he
should not be maligned. Another statement is made about Billy Dunn that I
wish to contradict, that is that he has a
" trace of Indian blood in his veins, and
would likely be a pliant tool in the hands
of a designing man." The fact is that
Billy Dunn is of German extraction, both
of his parents migrated from Germany to
the States.
\ Perhaps the editor of the Gazette is
[not aware of the fact that there are two
IBilly Dunns and both singularly enough
[nicknamed "Shoity," and the one he
refers to as a vagrant is not the one who
mas formerly foreman on the Allison
ranch. Both men were in Cariboo. I
have sent this statement to yon knowing
your love of justice and that you would
not willingly blacken a mans' character.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Nobody's faith in the mitieral resources of the Princeton district
has ever wavered for want of proof
of their existence. No one doubts
that Princeton will be a great mining and smelting centre. Evidences
lie all around which point to a large
city in the next decade as the result of the development and operation of the mines. Periods of depression and discouragement have
been the portion of every mining
camp. Princeton has felt these in
bygone days. Now, however, the
bright sun of prosperity is dawning. Delays, which could not be
avoided," have kept the railway behind, but they are now at an end.
The right-of-way to and beyond
Princeton is practically settled.
Grading contracts will be let in a
few days. A new era and a new
order of things commercial and
social will begin. The confidence
which resident owners of mining
and real estate property have can
be imparted to newcomers by practical illustrations of their faith in
building, improving and developing.       I .
: The good work done by Duncan
Ross, M.P., in fighting for the
V.,V. & E. has been acknowledged
by the people and press of Yale-
Cariboo. It will be a pleasure to
his constituents to note that he is
•'again being applauded all over the
^Dominion for his able speech in the
debate on the North Atlantic Trading Co's contract" with the Dominion government. The contract was
thought to be unfair and corrupt
by the Tory leader in the house
(Borden) so he set his scavenger
(Foster) to do the dirty work he
would not do himself. Foster filled
many pages of Hansard with the
slime his chief bade him emit. He
wallowed in innuendo and cast low
imputations at the ministry and the
Liberal party. Mr. Ross replied to
Foster, proved the soundness of the
contract and pointed to the rapidly
filling prairies with settlers resulting from the energetic immigration
policy of the government in connection with, the North Atlantic
Co. He neatly and effectively
turned the tables on the wry-faced
Foster as he exposed one graft after
another which the member for
North Noronto was implicated in.
Of all men in the house Foster
should be the last to attempt mud-
slinging, since his own political
career is far from creditable. It is
well known that his constituents in
his native province sickened of him
and threw him out bodily. North
Toronto took him in out of the
cold from sheer pity and it is sick
of him, if reports are true. Borden is also a castaway from Nova
Scotia and only found charitable
refuge in the back townships of
Ontario until the next elections.
These two brothers in exile and
wandering refugees are catching at
straws in the vain hope of getting
their claws into the treasury chest.
It is safe to say that they will end
their lives in political banishment
and the Fosterian reign of graft is
a thing of the past, never to be revived. ..■ WkM
LICENSE NOTICE.
It is much to the credit of the
member for Yale-Cariboo and the
satisfaction of the great majority of
his constituents that he should so
mercilessly expose the methods of
Foster and his group in land and
mining companies when the Tories
ruled at Ottawa. Some of Foster's
scavenging friends of the press do
not relish the exposure made by
Mr. Ross and attempt to bedaub
him in retaliation. What can these
muck editors think of Foster whom
Sir Mackenzie Bowell describes as
a "traitor" and the "head of a nest
of traitors?" That description is
from the ex-premier of the Conservative party and colleague of
Foster. No comment or explanation is required to make it stick
"closer than a brother."
The annual report of the provincial department of mines for the
year 1905 has been received and is
a most interesting volume. There
is a big increase in the mining industry, the totat value of mineral
products reaching $22,461,325, an
increase over the preceding year,
1904, of $3,483,966, or 18 per cent.
The tonnage of ore mined increased
about 5 per cent, and a small increase in the number of shipping
mines from 142 to 146. There was
a decrease of 13 per cent, in the
output of placer gold which is the
smallest since 1901, which was
caused by the drying up of water
supply. The value of coal produced showed an increase of over
11 per cent. The report contains
22 pages of illustrations and altogether is a very creditablejjwork of
the printing art.
The total value of trade for the
Dominion of Canada ending the
ten months with April amounted to
$435,742,955, an increase of $63,-
801,543 over tne same period last
year. Every branch of trade shows
an increase.
Take notice that I, Mrs. Alice James, of the
Granite Cieekhotel, intend to make application
to the License Commissioners for Nicola district
for permission to transfer her hotel license of
the said hotel at Granite Creek to Chas. DeBarro

WARNING - GLANDERS.
In districts where j the existeuce of
Glanders is suspected and especially in
neighborhoods where actual outbreaks
have occurred the adoption of the 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 manner
prescribed below.
3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly, and burning all debris, the in
terior 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
thoroughly treated in a similar manner.

SMILES.
Mark Twain at a dinner in New Yoik,
told a story from his native town of Hannibal, Mo. "There are in the world,"
he .said, "a good many men like Jonathan
Scarborough of Hannibal. He was one
of those men, with nothing evil absolutely known, against them, who are yet
looked on, and no doubt justly, withsusT
picion. It was thought of Scarborough
that, for a poor man, Jie ate too much
chicken. And one day the blow fell He
was arrested for chicken stealing. A witness was called to testify about Scarborough's character. 'Did you ever know
this man to steal poultry ?' asked the
lawyer for the defence. 'No, I never
did,' aaid the witness. 'But this is what
I do know ; if I was a chicken, "and Jonathan Scarborough was about, I'd roost
high.'"
"This somewhat grasping spirit," said
Senator Burrows, in the course gf a recent argument, "reminds me of a lady
who dropped in the other day at a certain, bank. Going to the paying teller's
window, she opened her pocketbook,
took xjnt a check and pushed it under the
brass grating. 'Cash this, please,' she
' said. But the paying teller, after one
glance at the check, pushed it back to
the woman again. 'I can't cash it, madam,'he said. 'It isn't filled in.' 'There
is my husband's signature on it,' the
woman said, excitedly. 'Yes, I know,'
admitted the teller, 'but there _ is no
amount.' 'Oh, never mind that,' said
the woman impatiently. 'Give me what
there is.'
Teacher—Johnny,I don't believe you've
studied your geography. Johnny—No,
mum ; I heard -pa say the- map of the
world was changin' every day, and I
thought I'd wait a few years till things
get settled. '
I Bad Habits—"It would be a very bad
thing if farmers ever got control of the
national finances." "Why so?" "Because from sheer force of habit they
would want to be always watering the
stock.
