INTERESJIMRjPORT
Of Public Schools Just Issued
Shows Educational   Progress Generally.
Timely Hints by  Inspector Gordon
re Proper Teaching—The Princeton School.
The 35th annual report of the Public
Schools of British Columbia for 1905 06
has just been published and is. full of
useful information to those interested in
educational matters. The report shows
a healthy increase in the daily attendance of scholars in the various schools
throughout the Province and on the
whole marked improvement was shown
in the efficiency of the schools, which is
gratifying to all cencfrned. The total
cost to the Provincial Government for all
purposes of education during the }-ear
was I444.227.97 In addition to this
amount the incorporated cities spent
over and above the per capita grants received from the treasury was $244,197.68)
or a grand total cost for education of
$688,740.56.
The inspectors for the different inspectorates or school districts in their reports
furnish some well timed and useful hints
to school trustees and people generally
regarding the management of local
schools and particularly the selection of
a teacher-,
. Inspector Jt S. Gordon, unaer whose
jurisdiction Princeton comes, speaks
pointedly ononis important question as
follows" "It is to be hoped that people
generally and trust®^iM^)articular, will
come to rea-lize"frhe"wisdotn of paying a
good salary for a good .teacher, rather
than being- satisfied wren a second or
third rate teacher secured for less money.
Let the people who desire competent
teachers offer good salaries and good
teachers will be encouraged to teach on
in good schools; while the poor and incompetent will teach in places where less
skill may do because less appreciated, or
be forced into callings where they may
be of some use. 'A well equipped school
and.-lhe.besiteacher possible for the best
salary we can raise' should be the motco
of Every school district. When it does
good results must follow."
This is good, sound advice, but unfortunately it has not been the course followed here, as the following will show:
"Princeton—Inspected September 19th,
1905; pupils present, 15 The teacher
lacks both trailing and experience'
W«rk is poorly done. Absence of sysiSemi
produces idleness, confusion and careless
work. More immediate study by -the*
_teacher is necessary if she is to succeed."
To say the least this a most unsatisfactory condition and there is apparently no
excuse for it. Plenty of comneteiujeach-
ers can be secured if desired.   The trus
tees state they were not aware of the
incompetency of the teacher and declare
that there has never been any properly
laid complaint against her. Par-;
ents on the other hand state they were
fnffy aware of the disorder existing at
the school, and on more than one occa
sion had spoken to the trustees regarding
it. Now that the matter has been officii
ally placed before the trustees it is to be
hoped steps will be. taken immediately to
engage a properly qualified teacher, even
if it does cost a few' extra dollars, and
make the school a credit to the town.
Since the above was in type it has been
learned that the trustees held a mee'ting
and decided that-a change would have to
be made at the expiration of the present

WORD "GENTLEMAN" DEFHpjD.
Editor Star—Sir: In one of our in
stitutions of learning in the Similkameen
the other day the definition of the \fm$
''gentleman" was given as : "A man who
does not work." Through the medium
of your paper would you kindly throw
some light on the subject and oblige,
PARENT.
Princeton, Feb. 20, '07
[According to Sir Thomas Smith, a
learned English authority living in the
18th century: 'the King doth ordinarily
only make knights and create barons, or
higher degrees; for gentlemen they be
made good cheap in this kingdom; for
whosoever studieth the laws of the realm,
jsvho studieth in the universities, who pro
fesseth the liberal sciences, and (to be
short) who can live idly and without
manual labor, shall be taken for a gentleman. The. modern meaning of the
word, as applied most generally by some
eighty millions of people on this conti
nent, is a man of good and gentle manner, careful not to wound the feelings of
others, a generous, manly person, in
short, a man of good character and good
repute among his fellows. The silly notion that a man cannot be a gentleman
who works with his hands is only retain
ed by those who would like to set up
j clawsses" here as in some of the senile
countries of-Burope. A man of honor
and good principles, though he dig with

are no test of gentility or nobility, for

nered persons have wealth«'to burn.'';
Riches-tnay buy titles and procure class!

great west good character alone makes

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY
of Similkameen by Mr. Cam-
sell, Dominion Geologist==
Valuable Report.
LABOR IS KING.
A summary report of the geological
survey department of Canada for 1906
has just come to hand and contains a
most interesting teport on the Similkameen district by Chas. Camsell, in charge
of the surveys in this district. Lack oi
space preventing the publication of the
report in one issue it will be run in
serial form till completed.    Mr.  Camsell
says: r^rf-uo
The district in which the field work
was this season earned out was that portion of the Similkameen Mining division
of British Clumbia, lying about and to
tiio south of the town of Princeton; the
o.bject being to commence a topographic
and geologic survey of a sheet, which
shall embrace the whole of the Similka
meen district, to be eventually published
on a scale of four miles to the ince with
a contour interval of 200 feet. Interest in
this section of southern British Columbia
has been greatly increased in the last year
or two by the probability of its being
shortly traversed by one, if not two, sep
arate lines of railway; and although it has
'long been known to contain valuable de
:posits of gold, silver, copper, platinum
and coal, the lack of lines of communication with markets for these products
prevented'any extensive development of
these deposits. With the advent of the
railway, however, the country has a promising future, and already some of the
principal claim owners are making preparations to open up their properties
with a view to the shipping of ore in the
near future.
The lack of any detailed geologic information has bee a great drawback to
the prospectors in the district, for up to
this year no attempt has been made by
this Department to dOTnuch geological
work since • the publication of Dr.
Dawson's map in 1877. (Dr Dawson'0
also spent a part of the season of 1888 in
a study of the rocks of the Tulameen
riven)  .     •..':*; v
.'  Thefield work requisite for the compila-
of a suitable map of the  whole district
must of necessity occupy several seasons,
so that, to satisfy  the immediate  claims'-
of the  district,  it'was deemed   best  to:
confine the  work  of this sessioi t    the I
more important sections where economic
minerals had been deicovered and miner
al claims located.    Conimenyiiig on the |
boundary line where it crosses the Pa|a$-
ton, and tying on to two prominent aion- j

Organization and United Effort Will
Place Labor Party in Power.
Editor Star—Sir: Since writing you
on the subject of forming a Labor party
in this Province. Articles have appeared^
in the large dailies favoring the idea
The beginning of all political movements, difficult at first, soon g'arns' the
requisite niofirentum if backed by merit
and the sentiment of the public or that
portion of the public which it is intended
to directly benefit. This movement is in
the interests of labor and if all working^,-"
men will give it the attention and sup~-
port it deserves the're can be no question
of its success.
Now. as to procedure, it will be necessary to secure at the outset a Labor organ, which no doubt can be obtained
from among the existing dailies, some of
which have already expressed sympathy
land encouragement for a Labor party,
'hue next step is the choice of a leader
and the formation of a Provincial Labblry
Association after which the organization
of local associations can be undertaken.
All workingmen not on the voters list:
should immediately see that their names
are placed there, as by-elections made
necessary by deaths and resignations^ra,
of common occurrence and a Labor candidates should be in the field with his
cohorts of supporters wherever there is a
vacant constituency.
Like all movements that ajnjat reform
and the betterment of the masses opposi-
jt;on will crop out against theLaboi party
from its natural enemies and   even   from
laborers themselves.    In  the  Star  I see
that  'One who works" opposes a   Labor
part) and some of its suggested   planks.
Well, I pity the man who, in spite yf the
forces of   progress and  enlightment   observed on every hand, still clings to   the
sweating system with its  proved permfcr-"
ous effects on health. Long slavery h8uir%-'
of labor were imposed on the poor ignor-;
ant tpilers of the middle and   later   centuries, but the intelligent workingman of
the 20th  century is   immovably opposed
to them.    I   cannot  believe   "One   who
works" is a workingman and  give utterance to such moss gn.wn, absurd   senti
ments as he writes—they are the emanations of a soured  and   mildewed   mind
from which there is no hope of recovery
except by a surgical operation  to  let   in
the sunlight of progress.    Labor is kiif^J
Y< urs truly,
WORKINGMAN.

SUNDAY  OBSERVANCE.
The Sunday Observance law
passed last session by the Dominion
Government, which is to become
operative on March ist next was
the outcome of agitation by workingmen and by prominent persons
in every walk of life. In every
Christian country there are now at
work powerful influences for the
preservation of the sanctity of Sunday as intended by the Creator of
all things, and lawgivers now are
agreed that the wisdom of a Day of
Rest is apparent in tbe better tone
and condition of the nation which
•est observes God's commands in
this respect. All nature demands a
day of rest and there cannot possibly be any valid objection to a
human being having one in every
seventh.
In England a manifesto on Sunday observance has been jointly issued by the Rev J. Scott Lidgett,
representing the non-established
Protestant churches, the Archbishop
of Canterbury for the established
church, and the Archbishop of
Westminster for the Roman Catholic church. The manifesto is moderate in tone, aiming at the welfare
of humanity as a whole. It is as
follows:
"As representatives of various
Christian bodies in England, we
desire to call the attention of our
fellow countrymen to the combined
efforts which are being made to set
forth explicitly and forcibly the
principle of Sunday observance. We
believe it to be literally impossible
to exaggerate the importance of
this matter to the well-being of the
nation. It is not merely that one
day's rest in seven contributes vastly
to the physicial and mental efficiency of men, women and children,
and tends to make our home life
more truly what English home life
ought to be There is more tnan
this. Under the sacred sanction
which attaches to ■ he Lord's Day,
it is intended that all should have
opportunity, in the worship of Almighty God, to escape from the
grip of ordinary cares and occupa*
tions into regions of higher thought
and nobler aspiration. We are convinced that on adequate and reasonable Sunday observance depends in
no small measure the possibility of
promoting in England the deeper,
the more sacred, and the more enduring interests in our common
life."
Works of necessity and mercy are
always to be performed and are
sanctioned and encouraged by the
law but other works are prohibited,
some of which are:
Sec. 2. It shall not be lawful for
any person on the Lord's Day, except as provided herein' or in any
Provincial act or law now or hereafter in force, to sell or offer for sale
or purchase any goods, chattels, or
other personal property, or any real
estate, or to carry on or transact
any business of his ordinary busi
ness of his ordinary calling, or in
connection with such calling, or for
gain to do, or employ any other
person to do, on that day any work,
hus'ness, or labor.
Sec. 5. It shall not be lawful for
any person, on the Lord's Day, except as provided in any Provincial
act or law now or hereafter in force,
to engage in any public game or
contest for gain, or for any prize or
reward, or to be present thereat, or
to provide, engage in, or be present
at any performance or public meeting, elsewhere than in a church, at
which any fee is charged, direct or
indirectly, either for admission to
such performance or meeting, or to
any place within which the same is
provided, or for any service or
privilege thereat.
Sec. 8. It shall not be lawful for
any person on the Lord's Day to
shoot with or use any gun, rifle or
other similar engine, either for gain
or in such a manner or in such
places as to disturb other persons
in attendance at public worship; or
in the observation of that day.
Sec. 9. It shall not be lawful for
any person to bring into Canada for
sale or distribution, or to sell or distribute within Canada, on the Lord's
Day, any foreign newspaper or publication classified as a newspaper
Sec 10. Any person who violates
any of the provisions of this act
shall for each offence be liable, on
summary conviction, to a fine, not
less than one dollar and not exceed
ing forty dollars, together with the
cost of prosecution.
Sec. 15. No action or prosecution
for a violation of this act shall be
commenced without the leave of
the Attorney-General for the province in which the offence is alleged
to have been committed, nor after
the expiration of sixty days from
the time of the commission of the
alleged offence.
Sec. 16 This shall come into
force on the first day of March, one
thousand nine hundred and seven.
The Dominion Sunday law was
not framed without much opposition from manufacturing and railway companies, from members of
Parliament on  both  sides   of  the
House who believe in a continental,
wide open or sporty Sunday, ignoring its religious aspect almost entirely; and from a large portion of
the newspaper press who favor the
Sunday publication as a matter of
business and who denounce a close
Lord's Day on the grounds of pleasure and as an interference with the
freedom of tbe citizen. Whatever
these varying opinions as to the
day amount to, there is no doubt
that nearly all Canadians are agreed
on the general observance of it as a
day of rest and cessation from labor,
they also as a Christian and civilized people believe in it as divinely
appointed and therefore a spiritual
and physical olessing. A Sabbathless country is not far removed from
barbarism, the analogy being equally
applicable to the individual. A rest
day in each week is the call of nature in every man and beast, it is
the voice of God from Sinai in un-
mistable terms : "Six days shalt
thou labor," &c.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Attorney - General Sir John L.
Walton, in the Campbell-Banner-
man Government, speaking at
Leeds, quite recently, foreshadowed
the Government's programme for a
reform of the House of Lords, saying that the "grim and serious
work" upon wfiich the Liberals
were entering "would mean a revolution and involve two or three dis-
olutions." Tbe House of Lords
being composed for most part of a
fossilized and decaying aristocracy
is out of harmony with modern
democratic institutions and must be
relegated to a back seat where its
members can no longer hamper and
defeat the will of the people.
The Hedly Gazette, in the exuberance of its joy over the victory
of the McBride Government, exclaims "Long live the goose that
lays the golden egg?" The application of this apothegm may not be
clear to the average student of political subjects. Is the public the
goose, and who is it that is carry
ing off the golden egg? And will
the goose be sorry in the course of
a few years that it laid golden eggs
for the exclusive nurture of a very
few persons and corporations who
are waxing exceedingly fat upon
the proceeds of the exploitation of
the natural resources of British Columbia? The people of Victoria
know some of the parties who exclaimed with the Gazette on the
evening of the 2nd February,
"Long live the goose that lays the
golden egg!" and the tact of their
rejoicing did not impress the public
with the idea that there was any
substantial reason for throwing up
hats.—Times.

Princeton, taking in a belt nVe nrffe^On
either side of the Similkameen river.
The mineralized areas of Roche river,
Copper and Kennedy mountain camps
were connected together on this skeleton,
and the geology of these camps studied
more carefully than the rest of the court
try. The boundaries of the Tertiary coal
basin about Princeton were defined, and
this, with tbe Copper mountain camp
was plotted on a topographic map oi half
a mile to the inch with 100 contours.
The early part of June was very wet,
but no rain fell from the end of June Until early in September, so that the bush
fires which started at the end of July remained unchecked for several weeks,
during which the pall of smoke rendered
it impossible to carry on the triangulation. For this reason the original inten-
tkjn of carrying the triangulation up the
Tulameen river from Princeton had: to be
abandoned, and the important camps of
Bejir creek, Boulder creek and Champion
creek in this section were only done
geologically, and not connected up with
the other camps.
Both iirthe topographical and geological work Mr. J. A. Allen rendered material aid and made a very efficient assist*
am.
On May 28, I arrived, at Penticton
where a oack train and outfit were obtained, and from here the journey of
seventy-five miles to Princeton was made
on horsebuck. The latter place was selected as headquarters for the season.
Though it is quite possible to continue
the field work in.the eastern part of the
district well into October, operations
were suspended in September, and on
25th of that month I left Pincton for
Rossland, Phoenix and Greenwood,
where some days were spent in a comparative examination of their ore bodies
with those which I found in the Siuiilk; •
meen district.
Physiography — The Similkameen
river forks at the town "pf Princeton, the
west branch being known as the Tulameen and the south branch as the south
Similkameen. Twenty miles :Mp the
south Tulameen again forks, dividing
intcThe Fasaytoh, but in recent years it
has become customary to refer to this
branch of the river as the Roche, while
in reality it should retain its original
name of south Similkameen.
Both the Roche and the Pasayton rivers
draw their water from the high range of
mountains lying on and to the south of
the International Boundry line?, their
branches interlocking with those of the
Skagit drainage, and the Methow which
flows directly southward into Columbia.
The basin occupied by these two streams
is enclosed between two spurs of the
Cascade range of mountains, which d-
vide in the State of Washinton, the trie
Cascades or Hozameen range forming tbe
divide between the   Roche   and   Skagit
rivers and running up northward to the
west of the Tulameen river; while the
eastern Cascades or Okanagan range
strikes slightly east of north and lies to
the west of the Pasayton and Ashnola
rivers* The western of these two spurs
is the more persistent and stronger range,
and its summits show little or no diminution it* elevation or ruggedness of relief
beyond the limits of this sheet tp tbe
north. . The. eastern range, however,
from summits at tte boundary line with
elevations of 8L500 feet, dwindles down
north of the Similkameen river to eleva-
tions oJRkpoo feet.

C P. R. MOVEMENTS.
Mr. R. Marpole, of the C.P.R., in an
interview the other day regarding the
company's operations in the west this
year, tbe^eartension of the road from
Nicola in tbe direction of Princeton was
touched-on. In answer Mr. Marpole is
reported ajs. saying: "Well, nothing has
been decided upon yet in regard to that
work. In the spring when all the snow
is off the ground in the Nicola country,
we will put a force of surveyors in the
field. Of course the ground has already
been gone oner,, but since former surveys were made local conditions have altered. Now provision will have to be
made for the reaching of the sections
where development of important mineral
deposits is under way."
THE GUGGENHEIM*
There is what might be termed a boom,
going on in prospecting for copper-gold
ores at tbe southern end of Vancouver island. The Guggenheimer interests have
secured a bond on an extensive area at
Sooke owned by a syndicate "Headed by
Daniel Campbeel, of Colwood, which fact
has apparently acted as an incentive to
many others who are interested in mining.
Monnt Skirt, near Goldstream, is the
locality most in favorat present. There is
quite a lot of assessment work being done
and the claims are showing up,extremely
well.

APPALLING ACCIDENT.
One of the greatest marine disasters for
many years occurred on the night of
Wednesday, Feb 13, when the Joy liner
Larchmont collided with the four-masted
schooner Harry Knowlton near Block Island. R, I. Out of nearly two hundred
passengers on the steamer it is feared only
twelve survive, many of the passengers
being drowned like rats in a trap. The
crew of the schooner escaped, but suffei-
ed fearful hardships before seaching shore
There was a fierce gale blowing at the
time of the accident, and with the temperature several degrees below zero the
