PRINCETON, B.C.,  WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 1907.
$2 a Year, in Advance
INTERVIEWED IN THE "PEN.'
Bill Miner,   Alias   ' Edwards'  takes
Life Easy and Increases Weight.
Biil Miner, alias George Edwards, who
was widely known in this section and
had" entree to Princeton's best society,
was recently visited by Sergt. Wilson,
N.W.M.P., at the "pen," New Westminl
ster. The Sergt., it will be recollected^
overhauled Bill and his pals in an attempt to escape after their train robbery
at Ducks, on the C.P.R. about a year ag> .
The old bandit said he was well treated
and that all outside engagements were
cancelled for the present.
The old fellow is employed in the
prison brickyard, which seeuis to agree
with him. as his "corporosity,'' and consequently his shadow, are increasing
while the beautiful summer days go by.
With that chivalry and lack of revenge
which alwa3"s characterized him he presented his capturer with his fine Luger
rifle aud wrote an order therefor to an
old friend in Okanagan. "Guess I will
sign this 'Edwards'," said Miner as he
wrote the order. With all his faults Bill
was polite and courteous and never was i
known to descend to petty larceny. He
played for big game and would scorn to
be classed with the 5 cent short change
artiste No doubt Bill has repented of
his many train robberies, his next holdup will probably be the ferr}' across the
river Styx.    So long, old man.
"Shorty" Dunn, who was also given a
life sentence, did not greet the officer so
cordially, but was sullen and morose.
Colquhoun, the last of the trio of robbers
seen by the Sergeant, is a 20 year man
and will have a trade when'he exits.

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Messrs N. Bangs, C. O. French, and
A. McAbee arrived in from Spokane on
Saturday evening. The extreme heat
and somewhat tiresome stage journey
from Oroville to Keremeos had the effect
of temporarily indisposing Mr. Bangs
and necessitated a short lay-over at the
latter place. Although greatly improved
it will be several days before Mr. Bangs
will be enjoying his usual vigorous
health.
Luke Gibson has rented his ranch to
Mr. Sibley, lately from Maine. Luke
will spend the most of his time looking
after his mining interests.
Wm. Brown, of Rock Creek, passed
through town last week on his way home
from Champion Creek, where he has been
doing assessment work on- his claims
there. Mr. Brown predicts great things
for that camp.
There will be a grand pool tournament
in the Princeton pool and billiard rooms,
commencing on Monday evening next,
when lovers of the cue will contest for a
handsome meerschaum pipe donated by
the proprietors.
Louis W. Hill, president of the Great
I Notthern Railway, accompanied by Chief
Engineer Hogeland, visited Princeton
yesterday afternoon, making the' run
from Keremeos, to which place they arrived by special train, in an automobile.
When word came over the wire from
iHedley that the Great Northern piesi
ident had arrived there and was on his
|Way here in an auto, no little excitement
jwas caused, as it was felt that something
'important aud definite would be learned
with regard to railway construction to
-Princeton, and whether or not it was tbe
iatention to proceed with it this fait.
Shortly after four o'clock the party ar- j
rived, the familiar chug-chug of the motor car sounding good to the ears of those
who had deserted civilization for the
simpler life in Piiucetou. The railway
magnates at once proceeded to the office
ofthe Vermillion Forks Co., where they
were taken in band by the resident manager, Mr. E. Waterman, and no time was
lost in proceeding to the coal mine under
development by the townsite company.
After a brief inspection, of the mine
the party returned to town and pulled up
at the Star office.
In conversation with the Star representative Mr. Hill stated he was making a
tour of inspection of his company's operations in this part of the country, a
trip he had planned to make at any
earlier date, but owing to. press of business he had found impossible to accomplish sooner. Asked as to his impressions ofthe Similkameen on this his first
visit, Mr. Hill said he was surprised and
pleased beyond expression at what he
had seen, and although he had gained a
fair knowledge of the country through
the columns of the Star, of which he was
a constant reader, he had now no hesita
tion in saying that the Star was really too
modest in its praise of the country.
On being asked the intentions of the
railway company respecting construction
to Princeton, he stated that .at present it
was difficult to say what would be done
on this part of the road. The
great difficulty they had  to contend with
was the scarcity of labor and at present it
was impossible to secure men enough to
meet the demands along the main lines.
The recent law suit his road had had
with the Harriman people  had been  the
mean:; of tieing their hands and caused
the money market to tighten up, preventing the necessary funds being secured for
expansion otherwise than what was abr.o
lutety necessary. Had it not been for
this and the opposition that had to be
contended with from the C. P. R., the
road would now be in Princeton.
Wishing to get a definite answer respecting work from Keremeos to Princeton this fall, the question was put to Mr
Hill straight, to which he replied in a
perfectly candid manner that we need
not look for it this year. He further
stated though that the rails would undoubtedly be here within a year.
Mr. Hill was asked the truth of the report that Jay P. Graves had bought   up a
latge block  of Crow's Nest  coal  stock,
allying his holdings with the  Hill  interests, tl ereby securing control of the company, to   which   he   laughingly  replied
that Graves was talking hot  air, and was
evidently trying to benefit his credit.
I  _ It uow being 5 o'clock Mr. Hill touched
^the lever of his flyer and the first auto to
race the streets of Princeton was  on   its
Hvay to Hedley.    The distinguished party
remained there over night, proceeding to
Keremeos this morning, where the train
was boarded and  a   start   for Vancouver
was made, where Mr. Hill goes to inspect
operations at that end.
Very Pleasant and Enjoyable Time-
Library Needs Donations
The Sunday School picnic yesterday,
from the view ooints of weather, program'^
grounds and refreshments, was an unqualified success. Sports, witnessed by,
perhaps, an undemonstrative crowd, were
nevertheless, interesting and varied and
drew out the muscular abilities of keen
competitors. Most noticeable were the
achievements of Rhea Murdoch and
Ruby McMullen in athletics, while the
ladies, all strong runners, have reason to
feel proud of the sprinting of Mrs. Godsoe and Mrs. Groves, to whom the race
of the swift went. Swings and music
were freely enjoyed and left not a moment of unfilled pleasure. The children,
the flowers that strew life's pathway, entered into the spirit Of the occasion with
much zest, and happy abandon. Expression of hearty thanks by the Sunday
School authorities is extended to all who
contributed byitheir presence and delicacies to the success of the occasion, also
I to those merchants who generously gave
prizes and largely reduced prices. The
Sunday School library, it is hoped, will
be augmented by the attention directed
to it now, an appeal to the public for
support, and contributions of good literature, being solicited. A. Murchie, photographer, and winner of the men s race,
took a snap of the large crowd at tea and
has views on sale.
The Hon. Edward Dewdney arrived in
Princeton last Wednesday on a short
visit. Despite his advanced years Mr.
Dewdney is as active as a man in the
prime of life. It is his intention to visit
the Old Country in the fall. Mr. Dewdney was accompanied in by his neice,
Miss Elfrida Allison, who is on a visit to
her mother.
C. C. Tilley, manager of the Pearless
Hotel, Oroville, and H. W. Harris, of
Lootnis, Wash., were visitors to Princeton last week on a pleasure and business
trip.
K. G. Hankinson, private secretary to
J. H. Kennedy, accompanied by Geo.
Masser and A. Logan, business men of
Grand Forks, drove up to Princeton on
Sunday on a pleasure and business visit.
They made a record trip, having left
Grand Forks on Saturday afternoon at 5
o'clock. They returned home Tuesday
morning well pleased with their outing.
MINING NOTES.
H. H. Claudet, of the firm of Claudet
& Wynne, Princeton and Rossland, has
recently installed an Elmore plant at the
Giant mine near Spillamacheen landing.
The plant is of 40 tons capacity with
crushers and ball mills.
The Guggenheims are having all kinds
of trouble in Alaska over a question of
right-of-way, and a short time ago a fatal
conflict' took place between their men
and those ofthe Bruner party, who claim
the right-of-way over which the Guggenheims are endeavoring to lay track.
Armed men have been stationed at the
points commanding the disputed ground
and wholesale bloodshed promises unless
the authorities take a hand in the matter.
J. W. Cook and Arthur W. Jenks, of
Portland, Or., who have been looking
over E. F. Voigt's property on Copper
mountain, left for home Tuesday afternoon.
The annual report of the Minister of
Mines for the year ending Dec. 31st,
1906, has just been received. It is full of
valuable information and is beautifully
illustrated, reflecting much credit on the
government printing bureau.
The following new wage scale has been
put into effect in the Rossland mining
district: Miners, $4 per day, shovelers
$3.25, timbermen $4, shaft men $4.50.

WILL COPPER PBICES GO DOWN
Consumers and producers alike
have had unusual interest of late in
the probable prices of metallic copper for the last half of 1907. For
a month or so past comparatively
little copper has been sold to the
large consumers, they having placed
orders earlier in the year for their
needs up to midsummer. With the
general shrinkage in securities of
all kinds that has been prevalent
since March, when the New York
stock market went to pieces, there
has been a feeling among large consumers of copper that the high
prices prevailing for the metal
should come down a little, and they
have been gradually shading off
from 25 and 26 cents per pound to
22 and 23 cents. The metal selling
agencies, however, point to the fact
that copper production is not keeping up with consumption, and,
therefore, there can be no great cut
in the prices of the red metal for
the present. As there was no considerable demand for the metal for
immediate use, the market has been
sluggish.
Now, however, some of the big
•consumers must soon come into the*
■market and get copper for whatever
it will cost, to fill contracts they
have on hand, and it will be known
"'before long which way the market
"will go. It is interesting to note,
in this connection, that all of the
dividend paying copper producers
have been holding large cash reserves, and if copper stays at or
around 20 cents per pound, to say
nothing of a higher figure, they will
keep up the present dividend rate,
with a continued healthy cash reserve. In other words, double the
dividends could have been paid that
were actually distributed. Though
copper may sag, there is reason to
think that it wiil continue at a satisfactory price for some time to
come.—Ex.
NOTES AUD COMMENTS.
If the Hon. Mr. McBride wishes
to retain the advantage he gained
in London for the Province he will
cease to exhibit himself as a politician of a purely partizan type. It
is as the Premier of British Columbia, the representative of a Province
which includes men of all views and
parties, that he is passing through
Canada and in that capacity it is in
his power to make plain to tbe east
the position of this Province on the
better terms question. It is most
unfortunate that he has chosen instead to make himself slightly ridiculous and to identify himself in the
eastern mind, not with the results
of his mission to London, but with
utterances on the political situation
which betray ignorance of, or blindness to, the cold facts of Conservative disorganization.—World.
The great Conservative party in
the Dominion are evidently in a
badly disorgauized condition, if one
is to judge by the various articles
appearing in Tory newspapers.
The present leader of the party, R.
L. Bordon, is not looked upon as a
sufficienty strong man to lead the
shattered Conservative forces to
victory and there is a movement on
foot to displace him. The great
and only George Eulseless Foster*
who figured so prominent"}' some
time ago in an unsavory way before the insurence commission in the
east, has a great longing to pose as
Premier of Canada, and he can be
trusted to knife Bordon if he found
it to his advantage to do so. Mention is made of the Hon. F. W. G.
Haultain, ex-Premier of Saskatchewan, as possessing the requisite
qalifications for leadership, and last
but not least, our own Premier McBride is also mentioned in this connection. The Conservative party
are groaning under tbe restraints of
prolonged opposition and are becoming desperate for another opportunity to enrich themselves and
friends from the public treasury.
Not that it is of any moment who
is chosen as leader, it will be interesting to note the outcome of this
agitation for a more vigorous man
to lead the great Conservative party
on to victory, or rather defeat, at
the not far distant Dominion elections.

Heart Strength
Heart Strength, or Heart Weakness, means Nerva
Strength, or Nerve Weakness—nothing more. Positively, not one weak heart in a hundred is, in itself, actually diseased. It is almost always a
hidden tiny little nerve that really is all at fault.'
This obscure nerve—the Cardiac, or Heart Nerve
—simply needs, and must have, more power, more
stability, more controlling, more governing
Strength. Without that the Heart must continue
to fail, and the stomach and kidneys also have
these same controlling nerves.
This clearly explains why. as a medicine, Dr.
Shoop s Restorative has in the past done so much
for weak and ailing Hearts. Dr. shoop first sought
the cause of all this painful, palpitating, suffocating heart distress. Dr. Shoop's Restorative—this
popular prescription—is alone directed to these
weak and wasting nerve centers. It builds:
it. strengthens; it offers real, genuine heart help.
If you would have strong Hearts, strong digestion, strengthen these .nerves — re-establish
them as needed, with

37 2 per cent, ovei the "average daily attendance for'tlifi previous year.
As you are all aware the old. school
house, having become too small to ac
com nodate the children attending
school, the Governmontgave the trustee's
the use ofthe court room in the Government building as a temporary'school
room, whe.e school has been held since
last fall. The Government, through the
Lands and Wor.cs . Department, have
called for tenders for a two-roomed
school building with accommodation for
80 children, which is to be erected this
fall. It was suggested to your trustee.-
that.the new school house should not b«.
erected on the present school property,
but on one of the benches above Vermillion avenue, and that an exchange oi
property might be made with the town-
site company. Owing to the lack of wa
ter on these benches your trustees did
not deem it advisable to take any action
in the matter.
Your attention is called to the lack of
a play ground adjoining the present
school site, which is only sufficient to
accommodate the school buildings, and
the need of procuring  more land   for   a
play ground.    Your trustees  would
gest that you purchase for this  pu
the three lots behind the  present   scho 1
