BRIDGE IS DELAYED
Four Bents of New Railway
Bridge Goes Out on the
Rising Tide.
Construction to Princeton Expected as
Soon as the Tracklayers are
at Keremeos.
.The V., V. & E. bridge at Armstrong
which was well advanced with the false
work necessary for the superstructure has
had a serious setback to its ultimate completion by the carrying away uf four
bents of piling, recently driven, by high
water in the Similkameen river. The
pile driver had finished with the channel
of the river and was at work on the ap
proach when the mishap occurred. It is
j not expected that the delay will be long
but all hinges on the stage of water,
which at present is receding
It is only 12 miles from the bridge to
Keremeos, which would have been reached by the middle of June with the track
layers. So near and yet so far, the railroad drags its weary length toward
Princeton still distant some fifty miles
from the end of the track and the
nearest rail connection jet obtained.
Once the track is at Keremeos it is only
a matter of routine until a daily mail and
reduced freight service are inaugurated.
At present freight and passengers are
being delivered at Chepaco, a station just
north of the interna.ional boundary.
It may reasonably be expected that
business will receive a filip throughout
the whole upper Similkameen with the
rails at Keremeos. So many evidences
of construction being proceeded with
to Princeton are apparent that the general belief is that contractors will be
breaking ground as soon as Keremeos is
made a base for hauling material and
supplies.
BAD COIN AT COAST.
Almost every bank in Vancouver has
samples of counterfeit coin which is circulating freely in two-bit (25c) pieces.
|8|£>It is believed to be the work of an artist
i over the border. So far, Princeton has
not experienced any alarm from an influx
of spurious coin, the chief concern being
that a shortage of good money might
occur. However, there is nothing to
fear while there is, plenty of gold and
silver here with which to make genuine
coin.
FINDING SHORTER ROUTE.
Engineers of the Grand Trunk Pacific
are now bending all their energies to the
survey of an entitely new line across the
central part of British Columbia. Several parties are out and it is expected that
if a feasible route   is obtained over 80
miles of track will be saved and a fine
country tapped. An important feature
ofthe new survey is that it proposes to
carry the main line a hundred miles to
the south of the village of Hazelton.
The new survey runs from the Telquah
river westward through the Copper river
valley and it is proposed to meet and
cross the Skeena river at Kitsalas can
yon. The belief of people in the north
is that this will be the route finally
selected. The Copper river district is
rich in minerals.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Jas. Reith, of Reith & Tweddle, proprietors ofthe Keremeos Hotel, drove up
to Princeton on Monday on a short visit
to his brother, leturniug next day. Mr.
Reith was accompanied by R. Elmhirst,
manager of the Armstrong ranch at that
place. This was Mr. Elmhirt's first visit
to Princeton and he expressed himself as
delighted with the town and vicinity and
he looked to see a large population established here in the near future.
P. Swanson, proprietor of the Great
Northern Hotel, left on Monday morning
on a business trip to Grand Forks.
Mr- J- A. Sibley and family arrived
from Millinocket, Maine, on Saturdav
and intends making Princeton his home,
for the summer.
Princeton Lodge I. O. O. F. No. will
be instituted next  Tuesday without fail.
M. L- Gordon was a passenger on Mon
day's stage from Hedley. having arrived
from Fernie to take the position of teller
in the Canadian Bank of Commerce, in
place of H. T. Newmarch, who is being
removed to Penticton. General regret is
expressed at the departure of Mr. New-
march in both social and sporting circles.
Lyall & Macdonell, general merchants,
are having their store painted which will
add greatly to the appearance of the
building.
A Winnioeg despatch of the 15th says
flour was advanced ;o cents per hundred
on all grades as the direct result of wheat
prices going soaring. This is the second
jump inside ofa week.
Great Northern passenger trains to
Midway are crowded every day with people heading west over the V., V. & E.,
many of whom are homeseekers.   1
Some of Premier McBride's faithful
friends and boosters are anxious to know
if he has yet arrived at the foot of the
throne in London where he set out for
about a month ago. His secretary, Mr.
McRae, is a newspaper man and it seems
strange that he should fail to herald the
great man's arrival to admirers in B.C.
Probably the premier and his secretary
have not recovered from sea sickness (?)
N. A. Bangs, of Spokane, is expected
to arrive in Princeton this week to look
over his timber interests here.
It is about time the proper authorities
got busy and appointed a scavenger.
CELEBRATE THE DAY
Victoria Day will be Loyally
Observed by Citizens and
Country Cousins.
Everybody Invited to   Enjoy Sports
and Dance—Man vs. Horse in
Straightaway Race.
Friday will be the 24th of Mav, known
the world over as the birthday of the
late Queen Victoria—Victoria the Good.
The day will be observed throughout the
British possessions by celebrations of one
character or another, and although there
has been no elaborate programme drawn
up for that day the people of Princeton
have arranged for a good day's sport.
There will be a baseball match, Princeton
vs. Tulameen, and a matched race for a
(iistance of twenty-five yards between
man and horse. The day will be wound
up with a dance in the Court House, for
which excellent music has been provided.
The local fans are getting into fine
shape and will keep the Tulameen
Wolves guessing. Advices from the lake
:town say barrels of money will be^fiand
to back their bunch of balj^tossers, so
sure are they of winning and they are
bringing along a big crowd of rooters.
This will be the first match of the season
and both teams are anxious to win. Ar-
rangemeuts have been made to serve refreshments on the grounds and visitors to
town can rest assured of getting their
moneys worth.
•Lay down the shovel and the hoe for

result in the formation of the International Tobacco Co., whose objects shall
be the growing of tobacco on a large
scale and eventually the establishment of
a great cigar factory in Kelowna or the
Mission district.

A RECORD TO BE PROUD OF.
A government that has been in
power eleven years and is stronger
in its personnel and mere deeply
rooted in the confidence of the pub
lie after the expiration of such a
term, must have gained its enviable
position by an unbroken line of
pledges faithfully kept. This is the
position of the Liberal Dominion
government today. When the
affairs of the country, which for
years previously had been so mismanaged by the Conservatives that
business was at a standstill, emigration had practically ceased, tbe population, for some cause never satisfactorily explained, was dwindling,
or at the best remaining stationary,
and consequent slow progress and
development of the whole country,
then the Liberals were called upon
to administer the affairs of the Dominion.
Previous   to    1896   a   number of
scandalous transactions had been
unearthed and expesed to light. It
had been found that public money
had been squandered without adequate return. Men in power had
used their office and influence in
directions calculated to bring advantage to themselves, and in their
public transactions had not consulted the welfare ot the people. Public interest had been scandalously
neglected for private gain, and even
the Conservative cabinet was so
divided against itself that the leader
of the then government described
his own colleagues as a " nest of
traitors." Under these circumstances there could be but one result, and that distinctly unfavorable and to the prejudice of the people generally.
After tbe clean sweep made in
1896 by the Liberals under the distinguished leadership of that great
Canadian, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, conditions changed as if b}r magic. He
called to his councils the best men
the country produced, and from
that time to the present, prosperity
reigned where distress previously
abounded, deficits were turned into
surpluses, the business of the country became vitalized, industrial concerns provided work for the artisan
and laborer, and peace and contentment succeeded dissatisfaction and
unrest. Such results could.only be
achieved by honest, economical
management   of public affairs, cou
pled with an intelligent public policy, wisely administered. That the
people of Canada appreciated this
was demonstrated very forcibly at
the general elections of 1900 and
1904, when the Liberals, with their
record of trust faithfully kept, were
before the people asking for a renewal of public confidence. The
overwhelming majorities given to
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's government
on those two occasions are matters
of history.
The Liberals during their first
year of office succeeded to a Conservative deficit of $519,981, but
by next year all this had changed,
and from 1896 to date the Liberal
administration of public affairs has
resulted in the foilowing substantial
surpluses :
1897 8 $ 1,722,712
1898-9    4.837.749
1899 1900    8,054.714
1900 1     5>648>333
1901-2    7,291,398
190a 3  14,345.166
1903-4  15.036,984
1904-5     7.893>o89
1905 6  17,898,719
1906-7  15,500,000
Total  $93,218,864
This     satisfactory   condition   of
affairs can only be accounted for by
intelligent and honest management
of the country's' business.    It supplies  in   addition   the best possible
evidence  of the   prosperous condition of the commercial affairs of the
Dominion     Even the Similkameen,
though  retarded  from growth and
development by the lack of railway
communication     has    reaped    the
benefits  of Liberal  administration
in having telephone connection with
the  outside  world    and    provided
with an expensive, yet efficient and
satisfactory   mail   service.      Postal
facilities are being continualh' added and improved  upon.    Increases
iu the salaries of postmasters   have
been made, all of which   and more
has been done in the face of largely
reduced   rates of postage.    It   is a
well known belief of those who are
in a position to form accurate opinions   that   no  railway  would have
been under construction in the Similkameen today if a Liberal government   had   not   been   in  power at
Ottawa.    Sorre of the more blatant
and    untruthful   Tory   newspapers
and politicians  would  rob the Liberals of any glory or  praise for the
construction of the V.,V. & E. and
bestow  them    upon  some  obscure
jay representative in tbe B.C. legislature.    The policy of tbe Liberals
is constructive, as witness the building of the  government   transcontinental railroad to  connect with the
Grand Trunk Pacific and the recent
master stroke  of Sir   Wilfrid Laurier   in   securing   the adoption of a
motion in the Imperial Conference,
London, favoring an all British subsidized  steamship  line  from Eng-
iand to  Australia  via Halifax and
Vancouver, of which space  forbids
further comment now.
