OUR COAL ALL flfiHT
Misleading   Statements  as to
the Quality of It are
Gently Refuted.
I Knocking " Defeats  Its  Own Ends
and Princeton Coal Gains
in Comparison.
Editor Star—Sir: My attention lias
"be^n drawn to a letier which appeared in
tne daily News-Advertiser of May 31st,
entitled '^Similkameen Coal," and signed
by a Mr. Barclay Bonthrone, Who is
apparently interested in aome Tulameen
coal properties. This letter would have
received atteution earlier but for my al-
s nee.
The people of Princeton, no doubt, feel
duly grateful to Mr. Bonthrone for not,
as he calls it, ' knocking " the Princeton coal field. 'But there is a feeling of
anxiety as to where he obtained the '' representative samples" irom which he
gave two analyses.
With all due deferer.ee to Mr. Bon
throne those analyses are by no mean^
representative of the coal mined by n y
company on their property adjoining .the
town of Princeton.
Mr. J. O'Sullivan lias also made analyses for  us  aud   I   will now quote him as
follows:
'• E. Waterman, Esq., Princeton, B C.
"DearSir:  Enclosed   I send   result of
analysis  of the.  sample  of coal receiyed
from   you  on  the  10th inst     I find the
coal is cannel of good quality ; it is very
valuable  for  the   maaufacture of gas as
well as for domestic purposes:
"Moisture *»»..  1040
Volatile Cotnbusiiole  38.35
Fixed Caibon  47.30'
Ash    3.50
Sulphur     0.45
" Yours faithfully,
"J. O'Suiaivan.
" Feb. 18, 1904."
In 1901 Mr. W. F. Robertson, the Pro
vincial mineralogist, reported on our pro
perty as follows:
" In the tunnel near the face a sample
was cut from the rib from top to bottom,
across about 8 feet of coal, free from large
shale bands, but with occasional small
ones included. This might be said to be
a .airly average sample of the coal as it
would be mined, and not a picked sample by any means.    It gave on analysis:
" Moisture mLJ  H-97
Volatile Combustible  3049
Fixed Carbon   49-21
Ash     8 33 "
I quite agree with Mr. Bonthorne whe n
he says that he never heard that high
heating quality was a drawback to a coal
for domestic purposes, and that is what
renders the Princeton coal, with a calorific of nearly 12,000 B.T U's, so valuable.
If the Tulameen coal is so vastly supe
rior to that of Princeton, how was it that
Messrs. Weeks &  Adams  when  running
their  dredne  at Granite Creek preferred

ANOTHER NEWSPAPER.
Volume 1. No. 1 of the Fraser Valley
Record, published at Mission City, B.C.,
by J. A. Bates, is the latest newspaper
birth to be recorded. Brother Bjtes was
known to the Star 'imp' many years ago
whorr; he met as a pilgrim journeying to
Jerusalem or Jericho, no matter which.
Our Brother is a man of fine parts, able
and trenchant as a writer, and as we
knew him, truthful, a rare quality among
writers of that day Well, here's best
wishes for the Record and its genial edi
tor.  ^^^
FUBLIC SCHOOL NOTES.
At the beginning of next school term
the Canadian flag will float from every
school house in the province, 400 having
been received by the government for distribution.
All school children will undergo vaccination by Dr. Schon after vacation.
This sane precaution is made bv the government to prevent spread of dreaded
smallpox which is becoming quite prevalent in some districts and difficult to cope
w.th.
Free school books will be issued by
the Department of Education to scholars after tl e summer vacation.
Election ot school trustee on the nth.
Parents having any interest in the management of school matters and the engagement of a qualified and otherwise
satisfactory teacher should attend. The
salary paid, $75 per month, should command a high class male or female teacher.
The finishing touches are being put on
the large building erected by William
Thomas on the corner of Bridge street
and Angela Avenue. The ground floor
of the building is intended for stores,
there being two fine, capacious apartments well suited for almost any busi
ness requiring central location. The
second storey will be a public hall, com
plete for the various uses which the name
implies. The seating accommodation
will approximate 500 Its size, 40x66.
with 14-foot ceiling, ensures comfort and
good acoustic properties.    The prosceni-
provement to Kenley Ave.
Messrs. Sykesand Bloomfield have each
erected dwellings which they intend enlarging in the near future but will now
suit present requirements.
CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.
Editor Star—Sir: After riding a
horse some eight or ten miles an individual tied the animal to a post at noon
and betook himself to pleasure. At 1:15
a.m. that night this poor beast was untied and probably ridden hard some five
miles and turned out. Between the time
the dumb beast was tied to the post and
again untied no food or water was offered
to it.
Boast about good government! Where
is our constable?

DETECTION OF PLAGUE.
The Provincial Board of Health has
issued instructions for the detection and
treatment of bubonic plague, clauses 1,
3 and 4 of which read in part as follows :
All sick Chinese, Japanese, Sikhs or other
Orientals  must give   notice  of their ilium is  ample for  any likely demands at | ness to the  Health Officer or Police Con.,
present by  actors,   ante   rooms being on 1 stable.    In rural municipalities the Medr
either side:    The floor is well adapted for   ical  Health   Officer or the Chairman or
dancing, a large unbroken space being

two exits. The hall is a credit to the
town and Mr. Thomas is deserving of
success for his  enterprise.    The hall will

death of any Chinese, Japanese, Sikhs,, or -
other Oriental  and  in  outlying districts--
the Government Agent or Provincial Con-
be dedicated to the goddess Terpsichore j stable shall be notified within twelve
the first time on the occasion of the Do hours of such death or as soon as possi-
minion Day ball. I ble.
The  livery  stable  erected   bv Broom
field & Garrison is an extensive addition
to buildings on Bridge stieet. To the
large hewn timber building which forms
the main stable there has been added a
carriage shed, the whole forming a block
of ample proportions for prospective business for some time to come This firm
was in business in Midway but seeing the
importance to which Princeton must
attain as a mining centre they decided to
remove from the former place. They are
experienced liveryjnen and Mr. Garrison,
who manages the business, with his family are a welcome acquisition to the citizenship of Princeton.
The frame dwelling owned and built
by Win Wilson, now occupied by Dr.
Schon, has been recently painted and
finished. It has a charming situation on
the bank of the Tulameen at the foot of
Billiter Ave., and, without doubt, is one
of the-prettiest homes in the Similka-'
meen. |
Charles Saunders has recently com-1
pleted his comfortable anil substantial
dwelling on Billiter Ave. With its fresh
coat of paint and verandahs it presents
a cosy appearance which must enhance
vaiues and add to the improvement of the
town.
J. L Huston will soon have his house
ready for occupation and when complete

TOWN AND DISTRICT NEWS.
J. O. Coulthard arrived home from the
coast last Wednesday accompanied by
Miss Mattie Popple who will spend holidays with his family.
Governor Dewdney was a passengjer on
the outgoing Nicola stage last Thursday.
The Misses Schon, nurses, of Spokane,
arrived Friday to spend their holidays at

The stork has been a bnsy bird, so ^ar
this year with its visitations in Princeton district and is 'making good' for the
country generally. Its latest call was at
the home of J. G. Macdonell last Thursday, and now there is rejoicing, over a
fine baby daughter.
J. B. Kennedy, CE , is re-locating, a
portion of the V.,V. & E. line running
across the Similkameen bridge. To obviate a dangerous crossing and an awkward £rade the change is made.
E. P. Wheeler left on Monday's stage
for Conconully, Wash.
A fishing party went up to Osprey lake
last week and from all accounts they hSU
prime sport. Allowing for discrepancies,
dreams and hallucinations the Star is of
opinion that there are some nice fish in
that beautiful lake, but to attempt to
make a fellow believe that there are sea
serpents, whales and bovalapusses there,
is stretching a fine point too far.

DOMINION DAY.
Another milestone in the history
of Canada is reached on this, the
41st Dominion Day since Confederation. In looking backward to
the Canada of some forty years ago
marvellous changes have taken
place in material advancement as
~well as in the social, educational
and political conditions of the country. From a few scattered provinces ill governed and money poor
there is the united Dominion of
Canada of today stretching from
•ocean to ocean, a distance of over
.3,500 miles, and from the international boundary on the south to the
JNorth Pole, nearly 2,000 miles.
It embraces one-third of the area
of the British Empire. Its three
districts, Ungava, Franklin aud
Mackenzie are larger than China,
which has a population of 400,000,-
000. Canada is larger in area than,
the United States and Alaska combined by 128,211 square miles and
has nearly a million square miles
of- unexplored land in the north.
With 13,000 miles of coast line it
equals half the circumference of the
earth. It is thirty times larger
than Great Britain aud Ireland,
twice the size of India, eighteen
times the size of France or Germany.
With such truly magnificent distances and immense areas of land
and water as compared with other
countries, the possibilities of Canada in natural products, manufactures and commerce generally are
virtually illimitable. Just the
fringes of its habitable and productive areas have been touched. Who
now could foretell with any accuracy the result of the development
of these vast unexplored tracts to
the north ? The best that one can
do is to make a comparative estimate with other new countries.
The unparalleled growth and expansion of our neighbor, the United States, affords an illustration of
what may be anticipated in Canada.
Immigrants are the one great factor
in the  development  of new lauds
and now
We hear the tread of pioneers,
Of cities yet to be ;
The first low wash of waves where soon
Shall roll the human sea.
Last year nearly 300.000 immigrants arrived in Canada, that figure in all likelihood being largely
exceeded this year.. Such hosts
of humanity arriving every year
together  with the natural increase
of population, it is not too great a
stretch of prophetic vision to say
that at the end of this century Canada will have one hundred millions
of a sturdy population. This vast
multitude of Canadians will work
out their own destiny by sheer
force of numbers and the momentum
which accrues to large bodies. A
peaceful political revolution will
take place as a result of the preponderating population and wealth
of the Dominion and the seat of
the Empire will be shifted from
London to Ottawa.
For a country having in the
neighborhood of 6,000,000 of people her transportation facilities are
the best in t_e world, the railway
mileage per population being more
than any other country. In actual
railway mileage Canada ranks 8th
in the world, having 22,452 miles,
or nearly as much as Great Bri
tain.
In products of the mines Canada
had an output of eighty million dollars' worth in 1906, of which British Columbia's share totalled twenty-four and a half millions. Over
$100,000,000 are invested in Canadian mining. British Columbia
is larger than the British Isles, Denmark, Switzerland and Italy com
bined. As described by Byron E.
Walker, general manager of the
Bank of Commerce, " B. C. is not
a sea of mountains, but a world of
valleys " The Star may be permitted to add that it beats tbe world in
majestic mountain scenery, in exquisite river and lake views, in sport
with rod and gun and in handsome
and healthful girls.
With the foregoing facts before
Canadians it is no wonder that they
have a wholesome pride in, and
patriotism for their magnificent
country. No musty aristocracies
nor class genealogies to hinder the
growth and expansion of that great
common brotherhood which they
have been taught to strive after and
,which is the basis of the best social
ism or any ism that aims to make
men likable and helpful tp each
other. Nations built on a solid
united basis of the units or individuals will last- So let us unite as
Canadians.
The usual annual celebration of
Dominion Day in Princeton is an
evidence of that glow of patriotism
which actuates loyal men in every
nation. It is a privilege to be
born in a country where liberty,
equality and patriotism are inculcated. Every Canadian can exclaim " Civis Canadensis sum,"
as the old Roman did of his country. Proud to be a Canadian and
proud of his King : God save
him.
On behalf of citizens the Star
bids a hearty welcome to visitors
on this national birthday, wishing
them also happy memories of the
day we celebrate.

In conclusion I would say that Mr.

A good coking coal will be of immense

hope that he will get most favorable reports from the shipment he sent to
