ROUTES OF V.V., & E.
Coast Newspapers Conjure up
Bogey of Road Going
Across Line.
Charter Calls for All-Canadian Route
to Coast—Graders Creep np
the Valley.
. A great deal of space-filling is now
going on in some newspapers regrarding
the route to be taken by the V.V., & E ,
now building in the Similkameen, after
it leaves Princeton. Some stoutly assert
that Hill will never cross the Hope summit but will bend southward across the
international boundary and make a junction with one of his existing lines, run
ning east and west.
The charter of the V.V...& E. calls for
an all-Canadian route. Amendments to
the charter were asked for and granted
in the Railway Committee of parliament
which enabled Mr. Hill to cross and re
cross the boundary line so that he might
overcome insurmountable physical difB
culties in the construction of the railroad
from Midway to Chopaca, where it enters
B C. after making a detour in Washington to obviate Anarchist mountain.
The main line of the V.V., & E. to Van
couver has been surveyed, located and
registered west of Princeton up the Tulameen River, through the Coquihalla Pass
via Hope. A preliminary survey has
been made up the Similkameen, over the
Hope mountains via Hope, as an alternative route. Both are all-Canadian. A
reconnaisance of a route via the Pasayton
River across the international boundary
and down the Skagit was made by Hol-
man Bros., but nothing further has been
done. It is believed that this route is
impracticable within reasonable cost and
is not taken serious thought of.
It would be necessary to obtain further
legislation to enable Hill to cross the
boundary and reach the coast via the
Skagit and Everett. In any case it is
believed that eastern M.P.'s would solidly
oppose any deviation of the line *br such
a long distance.
Coast newspapers need not borrow any
trouble at this late date where the tonnage of the Similkameen will go to.
They did not help the Similkameenites
to get a railway but buciced ''Uncle Jim"
at every turn of the road when he was
seeking legislaion to build into the Similkameen and to Vancouver in opposition
to the C.P.R. Mr. Hill wiil long be
hailed as the saviour of the Similkameen
in contradistinction to those C.P R. organs which tried to kill it. People here
are fair traders and will trade with those
who trade with them. At present Spok
ane capital looks very good to Prince-
tonians while coast money is not in sight.
If the coast newspapers will be good
enough to leave our railway matters alone
and mind their affairs at home the Star
will say some nice things about them.
Grading will shortly begin at Princeton. The right-of-way clearing being
nearly completed to Hedley. No right-
of-way has been purchased west of
Princeton. Between 150 and 200 men
are at work on coustruction. If work
were pushed the rails could be easily laid
to Princeton by the end of the year.
PRINCETON TENNIS CLUB.
The tennis season opened last Saturday on the grounds of the Princeton Tennis Club. Quite a number of spectators;
viewed the play from the rustic fence.
In tl.e personnel of the club no less than
in the materiel there is every requisite
for its success and the auspicious opening
gives promise of much social and athletic
pleasure as well as conducing to that state
of hj-giene so much sought after by the
ambitious and ever increasing human
finiily of today. Perhaps a tournament
ma3* be arranged with Kamloops, Vancouver or Victoria as it is said Princeton
is the only town in the Similkameen
that affords a tennis club.
OVERDUE SUBSCRIPTIONS.
The Star would like to see the color of
the collateral of some of its delinquent
subscribers. A few people in this neck
of woods seem to think that they should
have the Star gratis, having read it for
years without putting up a 'bean'—the
end of forbearance and patience has been
reached and other less indulgent measures adopted. The Star cannot live on
wind, it must have a little gas, and that
means the devil's to pay. Pay now and
ease your conscience.
TOWN AND DISTRICT NEWS.
Marriage licenses are now issued by
Gordon Harris, Penticton, which makes
it a little more convenient for prospective
benedicts in Princeton. But why not
one of our own citizens be appointed
issuer of these interesting, and withal,
most important documents.
Judge Brown held county court last
Friday, the, only case being an appeal
from magistrates' decision re theft charge
against Ah Sam. Appeal sustained,
conviction quashed. B. S. Kennedy,
'Q.C.,' for appellant.
Jas. Clarke, watchmaker, of Hedley,
was in town Tuesday on a visit. He reports things active in his town, with the
exception of the board of trade, which
he thinks has got gallopping consumption. Disease among boards of trade
seems to be highly infectious.
The Misses Schon of Spokane will
shortly spend their vacation at home,
Princeton.
Mrs, Ronald Hewat is expected to arrive from Alberta this week where she
has had a long and enjoyable visit.
THE MINING WORLD
Metal Market Firm, Coppers
Advancing and Prduct
Is Increasing.
B C. Copper Co. Resumes Operations
in Boundary—Miner Tunnels
All Alone.
: Resumption of work at the British Columbia Copper Co's mines and smelter at
Greenwood, after a long close down, is
the best bit of news from that town for
many moons. Nearly seven hundred
men will find employment at once.
■ Robert Stevenson, the veteran miner
and prospector, received word on Saturday that a big strike had been made on
the Myomi, Nickel Plate Mountain. He
immediately left town to superintend
further operations.
Mining in Kootenav generall}- is more
satisfactory than was thought possible
during the financial stringency of last
fall.
M. K. Rodgers, the first man to develop
and prove the riches of the Nickel Plate
mine at Hedley, says that he has assayed
all tbe mining districts from Mexico to
Alaska but has found nothing to equal
the Nickel Plate. It is reported that Mr.
Rodgers was in Hedley in connection
with some pending litigation with the
Daly Reduction Co.
Europe is again buying copper and the
price again  advances in London.    Cop
per is now hovering about 13c. but is ex
pected to soon advance to 14c per lb.
P. Y. Smith came down from Granite
Creek last week and reports some three
feet of snow Bear Creek way.
J. E. McCauley, who is himself an investor in the Princeton district and also
represents considerable Spokane capital,
has been steadily at work with a gang of
men for about a year on Copper Mountain on the Combination group. He has
spent several thousand dollars in development work, thus giving employment
and disbursing money for supplies. He
has unbounded faith in this district and
is buying mineral properties. Recently
he bought 640 acres of coal land near
Princeton at what is considered a veo'
cheap bargain, the surface rights as wild
land alone being worth $1500, three-
fourths of price of lease.
The Vermilion Forks Co. is shipping
20 tons of coal to the Adams-Weeks
gold and platinum dredger at Granite
Creek.
E. E. Griffiths located the Westmount
in the Slocan in 1896. Since that time
he has driven, all alone, a thousand-foot
tunnel. For months at a time he neither
saw a human form nor heard another's
voice.   It is thought he has got a bonanza and he deserves it.
Free Miners' Certificates must be renewed before the end of May—$5 will
satisfy the law's demands.
Martin and Smith, members of Phoenix Miners' Union, No. 8, were recently
killed by a falling ledge in stope No. 61
300-fo"t level of the Granby mine. Martin was a native of New Zealand and had
only recently married a young bride at
Fairview ; Smith was a native of England.
The prospects for a rich camp at Find-
lay River are unusually good, but starvation threatens the camp owing to scarcity
of supplies.
Peter Johnson is at Kennedy Mountain doing assessment work.
FIRE BELL REGULATIONS.
Now that the fire bell has been installed, Fire Chief, J. R.Campbell has
given the Star the following regulations
for publication which citizens should
paste up for reference :
For fire alarm purposes the town is
divided into two wards. Ward I consists
of that portion lying between Billiter
Ave. and Tulameen River. Ward 2, all
that part between Billiter Ave. and Similkameen River.
Four sharp taps on the bell, with slight
pause between each four, will indicate
that the fire is in Ward i. Two sharp
taps, with pause between each two, will
locate the fire in Ward 2.
Continuous moderate ringing of the
bell will be used for meetings of any
kind, for public demonstrations or for
giving the correct time daily. Tolling
for the dead will be one stroke of the
bell with measured intervals of ten seconds.
Tampering with the bell by any person
ringing it needlessly, in'frohc, is not permitted and is liable to prosecution.
Princeton has now a fire alarm system
that is not equalled in any town of its
size in Canada and the Fire Brigade is
deserving of much credit for having persistently worked to such good purpose. •
ADVERTISING RESOURCES.
Fifty thousand dollars will be spent by
the Spokane Chamber of Commerce in
advertising the resources of Spokane and
district. Spokanners have spent more
than $60,000 in the last two years in inducing capital and population to come
into the country and develop its resources. It is claimed that there is room for
50,000,000 of people in the 150,000 square
miles of country tributary to Spokane.
The Princeton Board of Trade might do
well to take notice and follow the example of Spokane—not in spending $50,000
but as much as she could without taking
chances on the sheriff. It pays to advertise.

important factor that advertising
plays in his affairs. Every town

it is hoped, is not to be the fate of
Princeton.-
As to the necessity of business
people advertising a letter received
at the Star office in connection with
an order for groceries to local
houses, will exemplify :. " * * *
" I can't find that he advertises in

POWER OF PRINTER'S INK.
Among the many towns and cities
to " wake up " to the necessity of:
a live publicity campaigu is dear
old, sleepy New Westminster, the
hibernating town on the banks of
Father Fraser and the home of the
"salmon-bellies." It is not a score,
of years since the grass of its mainjy°nd aI1 doubt- Next to the duty
street, afforded good pasturage for;of everyone subscribing for his
the strolling herds of cattle and1 home PaPer comes the duty of help-
cayuse. The smoke of the teepee inS it to show up the town and dis-
curled in beautiful wreaths from thejtrict b>' advertising and filling its
business centre while the dusky j columns with news from every camp
maidens and bucks lolled about in 1 and section. Are citizens patron
the most careless fashion ; even tbej izinS their local paper as they
whites  wasted  niuca- of their time) ought?    It is not a question of who
is proprietor or who is editor. Is
the paper needed ? Is it of any
benefit ? Will it help to build up
the town and country ? These are
the vital questions which, if answered in the affirmative ought to
be followed.by a subscription paid
in advance or an ad. The power
of printer's ink and the need of a
newspaper has been demonstrated.
Will the miners, prospectors, farmers, mechanics, merchants, hotel-
keepers, companies, board of trade
and government rise to their opportunities and patronize their local
newspaper, cr will they neglect it
and languish, and grumble, and
knock and pine away under the
withering competition of other
towns ? Like New Westminster,
Princeton should shake off its heavy
slumber so full of nightmares and
"high hosses," and lay   the found-
in yawning and stretching and
backeapping-their neighbors- Now
all is to be changed. Thousands
of dollars are to be spent in ink—
printer's ink—the recognized transforming power of the age. Without advertising in these progressive
days a city, or a town, or a business
might as well be buried. New
Westminster, as a fresh water port
.and natural center of the agricultural and fishing industries ought
never to have allowed Vancouver to
steal a march upon it. But it did,
and at this late day is waking up
to recover its lost business aud population. Beautifully situated, with
two large government institutions
and big lumber manufacturing industries, it remained only with the
citizens of Westminster to maintain a progressive pace and rival
Vancouver.    But   they  fell   asleep
in the  which  moss grew   all over  ation of a great mining camp,
them—an object lesson and warning 1
to all inactive  and nonprogressive
communities.
The power of printer's ink to
lift out of obscurity arid bring about
business activity has been long
admitted by governments, corporations and individuals. Without extensive advertising the great wheat
belts of the northwest would still
have been the hunting ground of
the Indian and the rolling tide of
immigration now sweeping over
those northwestern plains, a thing
unknown. Special editions of newspapers and pocket folders ,are the
most popular forms of advertising
towns or districts, while the regular advertisement of every business
in a city or town is not only necessary for the life of the local paper
but is the only recognized means
whereby an outside reader may size
up the town. Every successful business man admits the necessary and

Some people think the telephone
line was built for ornamentation or
as a toy for that great master genius
who manages it.    It looks like it.
.Some succulent campaign fodder
re telephone line may be had on application to Wee, Yu, Uss & Co.
There is a distinction between a
Liberal and a Rossite, It won't be
known what or how much it is until
thelast'VOte has beeri/counted.
Princeton, the first to agitate- for
the telephone line, is now neglected
and forgotten. Ah, it was ever
thus. Ingratitude ! the commonest
of poor, poor humanity's faults.
Let's see. How many times has
this telephone line been built ? And
the repairs and expenses and returns.    Who knows ?

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
A GEE AT NEWSPAPER.
Toronto Globe in Its 65th Year is the
Ablest Paper in Canada.
Among the most valued of the weekly
exchanges received by the Star none is
more welcome than the Toronto Globe
with its splendid Illustrated Magazine
Section. Its original articles cover every
field of industry and production. Recently its illustrated articles of the great
manufacturing concerns of Canada with
biographical sketches of the Captains of
Industry who founded or control them,
have been very interesting and full of
information for every class of reader. It
is the recognized '"bible" of the Ontario
farmer, who consults its able articles on
farming and agriculture generally. Its
contributions on fruit growing, forestry
and allied subjects make it of especial
value to the fruit growers of the Similka
meen. The Weekly Globe and Canada
Farmer, including the Illustrated Maga
zine section, is the best Dollar-Per-Year
paper in Canada, if not in the world.
The Daily Globe is indeed Canada's
national newspaper, the "Times" of
the Dominion lis editorials are read by
every well informed editor, who goes to
them for inspiration and instruction on
all possible subjects. The beauty cf its
Liberalism lies in its willingness to turn
on the searchlight on its own party as
well as on the Conservatives. lis secret
of power and influence lies in that fact.
It is the ablest edited of all Canadian
journals and is read and quoted by members of parliament, ministers and writers
geneially, besides the largest constituency
of daily readers in Canada. Clean and
wholesome, its uplifting power is beyond
question. Its mechanical makeup is not
quite up to date and it needs new type
faces as well as the latest in heading
styles. It ought also to devote a page to
mining in the weely issue and stitch the
whole edition together. The above is
written in answer to a letter asking the
Star's opinion of the Globe.
RAILWAY JOLTS.
C.P R. Engineer Carry is expected to
arrive shortly aud resume the work he
left unfinished last fall. Mr. Carry will
have a large party and will employ a pack
train most of the time. The objective
uoint of his preliminary survey is Trout
Creek, Okana^an Lake, It is thought
the C.P.R. will parallel the V.V., & E.
from Otter Valley to Five-Mile, up which
it will run to gain the divide to Trout
Creek. Sir Thomas always said that the
C P.R. would be in the Similkameen as
soon as any other road, but it is evident
he has missed his guess by a few inches.
A little competition wojld do no harm in
building, anyway.
Geo. Cunningham, superintendent of
railway construction for the contractors,
was in town yesterday Mr. Cunningham is 'strkt'y lminess' and has nothing
to hand out in the form of news to hungry reporters. The V.V., & E. is building. We all know that ; but when it
will be completed to Princeton is beyond
the ken of man. Mr. Cunningham will
please hurry it along, lest we forget what
ihe snort of the old 'iron hoss' is like.

Tou must be above suspicion before you
have any right to suspect others.
The smallest man is the stingy man.
It's better to forget an jnjury than to
forgive it.
There is nothing to be gained by being
a knocker.
Some men and a few women are
strong enough to keep their faces closed.
Many a man has the courage of a crawfish.
The owl is the wisest looking bird and
the most.
A wife is either the making of a man
or the unmaking of him
A girl's face is her fortune if she is
able to land a millionaire.
Many a man fails to make good because he loves his ease too much.
The hobo has neither future nor past,
therefore he is content with the present.
Fortune occasionally smiles on a man,
but more often it indulges in a grin and
puts her finger to her nose.
When it comes to speaking in praise
of their neighbors very few people are
there with the goods.
A man- may build a palatial house but
without a loving, gentle wife he will
Mever have a home there.
Many a girl who thinks she is too good
to do housework believes that hei mother isn't.

PRINCE RUPERT.
A Good Place to Stay Away from Now
Unless One has Plenty of Coin.
As there are a number of persons in
Princeton and throughout the Similkameen who are cogitating on the possibilities of Prince Rupert with a view to
migrating there it will be in order to
publish any reliable information con
cerning it. In the first place Prince
Rupert does not possess a tithe of the
natuial resources that Princeton does.
Secondly, its climate is so moist that
everything is covered with moss—it is
even said that the Indians have moss on
their ears and are web-footed. A gentleman recently returned from there says
it rained almost continually during his
etav, and travel at Prince Rupert was invariably made in a canoe. The mossy
nature of the soil holds the water. The
necessary equipment for a person going
to Prince Rupert consists of an oiled suit,
a tent, and a canoe.
He needs cash almost as much as the
equipment so that he can wait until the
townsite is thrown open and lots put on
the market some time next fall. The
only hottl is always filled to overflowing.
Prices for supplies are high and the one
or two stores do a large business with
big profits Horses cannot walk on the
treacherous soil and planks have to be
laid for them.
f Everything is still in a etude state and
there is not much to indicate that here
is the terminus of a great transconti
nental line of railway. It is estimated
that already over a thousand men are
now looking for business and specula
live openings where there are none, at
least, for the time being.
It takes 48 hours to reach Prince Rupert from Vancouver and costs about $20
fare and food.
