PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER J5, 1909.       $2 a Year in Advance
Vol. X. No. 38.
THE BOARD OF TRADE
Resolution    re    Experimental
Farm Adopted, to be
Sent Minister.
Suggested Reward for Arrest and Conviction of Persons Causing
Forest Fires.
At the meeting of the Board of Trade
held last Monday night, postponed from
Labor Day, the following communication
was read from the secretary of the Westminster Board of Trade :
" Secretary Princeton Board of Trade :
Sir,—Many thanks for your letter, as also
for oamphlet, which I have studied with
interest. I shall be glad if you will keep
me well informed with regard to your
necessities in order that I may, if possible, "move my Board to support your
actiona. I am satisfied, on the railway
question, at least, that you have a strong
position and one which may be strengthened for the advantage of our respective
districts. I am closely watching the
Star and as soon as conditions are far
enough advanced, or at any time you
may so suggest, will get our transportation committee to work. I should be
glad to know something about the coal
question also."
Communications from the secretary of
the Spokane Interstate Fair respecting
mineral exhibits were read, as also from
the same source inviting members of
the Board in good standing to attend the
big fair as guests of the executive.
It was pointed out that as New Westminster would be a fresk water port for
ocean shipping the interests of Princeton
and the whole Similkameen would be
well served in making it our shipping
point for coal, ore and fruit. The secretary was invited to convey the thanks, of
the Board to its sister board of New
Westminster for the kindly interest manifested in Princeton.
The question of more adequate means
for the detection of lawbreakers who
wantonly or carelessly cause fires which
destroy timber and other necessary natural products, was brought up and a resolution favoring the offer of a reward of
$500 by the federal and provincial governments, conjointly, for the conviction
of offenders, was ordered to be sent to
Premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and Premier, Hon. Richard McBride.
Resolution to be forwarded to the Minister of Agriculture was read: Resolved,
That the Princeton Board of Trade, believing that this district is well suited for
the establishment of an experimental
farm in the dry belt, respectfully requests
that an expert, or inspector, be authorized to visit this section and examine several farms eligible for the purposes of an
experimental station.
A congratulatory message from the
Board to Commander Peary on hisXdi&j!
covery of the North Pole and the scientific, trade, and commercial benefits to
follow so great an adventure, will be
sent.
Board adjourned, to meet again on
Monday, October 4th.
TRIALS OF MAN BEHIND
QUILL.
A sense of loneliness has crept over tl e
staff of this paper lately, caused by the
departure of our neigbors, the chicks-
dees. Just above the editor's thinktank
between the outer and inner walls,
they built two nests which, judging from
t'le racket kicked up wheu the old birds
brought home a worm there must have
been a hundred chicks. They went away
some days ago, fine feathers, racket and
all, and are dearly uii.-sed. But listen !
Even while the type is spelling these
words sounds of a newly arrived tenant
in the bird's 1 est- are heard. It is a
bushy ta'l rat! Either the thinktank
or that rat will have to more quarters
and a fight is now on.
FARM LAND DEAL, MORE
IN SIGHT.
Messrs. Avery & Arery, real estate and
insurance brokers, report that considerable inquiry is being made for farming
land. Their most recent sale was the
320-acre farm of C. Burch, One-Mile, to
Percy E. Rowlands. The price, $4,000,
was very satisfactory to all parties concerned. This land is very favorably situated for water supply and capable of producing a large tonnage in crops when
all brought under cultivation. Percy
and Billy Green now own a block of over
1200 acres which embraces considerable
timber land. The Burch property is
about four miles from town.
Max Wilson came in from Chilliwack
via Hope Pass on Sunday and will probably settle here, the coast climate not
being suited for his rheumatic tendencies. He was accompanied by H. P.
Wilson, • manager of the Royal Bank)
Chilliwack; L. C. Coote, capitalist; H.
Girvan, hardware merchant; Al Evans
and his son.
J. Snider and family arrived last week
and are residing on Billiter Av. Mr.
Snider will be stage conductor between
Princeton and Nicola.
F. P Cook, telephone operator at Granite was in town yesterday. He reports
fires raging all around Granite creek and
Welldo. Firefighters are holding the
devouring in check.
C. V. O. Chatterton, 'Chatty,' representing R. P. Rithet Co., was in town
last week.
A. Waddell, on visit to his brother,
left last week for the coast.
MINES AND MINING
Whipsaw Camp Promising as
Development Goes
on There.
Vermilion Forks Co. Preparing to Produce Coal on Spipping Scale-
Superintendent Here.
Billy Knight came down from Whip-
saw Saturday last and is confident that
the recent silver-lead strike there will be
followed by the development and operation of a good mine. He has proven the
existence of a lead from 10 to 25 feet
wide for 1500 feet, assaying 5^ per
cent lead and j}4 ozs. silver, taken from
the Lucky Pair. Some fifteen claims are
now staked and more to follow.
Thirty claims have been bonded to the
B.C. Copper Co  at Kamloops.
. Charles Graham, coal mine superintendent for the Vermilion Forks Co., arrived last Wednesday and is now on duty
at the mine. A lot of preliminary work
must be done before coal is produced on
ala:ge shipping scale. Actual mining,
except for the town market, will not be
begun until improved machinery is in
stalled and the railway in operation.
Mr. Graham is acquainted with every
detail of coal mining having .been an
underground apprentice, graduating to
his present position after long service.
He has also had technical training which
qualifies him as a member of the provincial board of mining examiners. He
is very pleased with Princeton and will
probably make it his oermanent abode.
The V.F.M. Co. are making preparations for the erection of a tipple at the
coal mine, the work to be superintended
by E. Barr Hall, the company's mechanical engineer.
W. Yolen Williams, Granby mining
expert, was recently at Bear Creek, coming to Princeton on his way to the Boundary.
LIKE PRINCETON BUT PREFER
ENGLISH CLIMATE.
Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Thomas left on
Monday last for England, going via Penticton and Okanagan Lake, expecting to
reach home a little before quarter day,
Michaelmas, Sept. 29. They have enjoyed their visit, but of course at their
great age, eighty, they could not think
of exchanging 'dear, old England' for
the 'wild and woolly west.' Whether it
is because people here retain perpetual
youth or that they never live to grow
old, matters little, the average westerner
takes a deep interest in extreme old age,
linking up the slow and ancient past with
the modern and quick revolving wheels
of progress. Mr. Thomas may well be
pardoned for preferring the moist climate of England to the dry mountain
ozone of Princeton—if he had lived here
a few years he could not be driven away.
Star bids them safe and pleasant jouruey
home.
TOWN AND DISTRICT*
Word has been received from Charley
Harris, with his brother on the Columbia
river, Washington, that he is slowly
mending in health and that either he or
his brother will be in Princeton soon.
Mr. and Mrs. P. Swanson are on tour
of the coast and will take in the A.Y.P.
before returning.
F. L. Parsons, M.E., Olalla, was in
town iast'week sizing up the mining situation.
Manager Marlow, Bank of Commerce,
is taking three weeks' well deserved holiday, going into the wild lake country at
the source of One-Mile. He is prepared
for all kinds of game and would not
object to a grizzly or two crossing his
path (without bruin seeing him, of
course.) Duiing Mr. Marlow's absence
he will be relieved by Inspector Mcintosh. Mrs. Marlowiwill be a member of
the expeditionary outing.
The Vermilion Forks Co. have a gang
of men at work improving the road up
the Similkameen river to their suburban
property.
Soon a guide book will be required for
Princeton. A man with a team of horses
and a plough was recently found wandering around looking for'Billhitter' or
'Billiken' St. A boom is here or in the
air.
Miss E. J. Carson arrived today from
Pavilion and begins her duties as public
school teacher tomorrow.
D. O. Day, with his visiting brother
and sister, returned last week from a
mountain trip which took in all the
grand scenic wonders and the world's
best fishing lakes and rivers.
Hank Snibley has been on Five-Mile
recently prospecting for mineral, land
and fur.
J. E. Kennedy, C.E., was in town last
Saturday.
Judge Murphy came down from Granite last Wednesday on one of his semi,
occasional visits. He is looking better
and laughs heartier than ever before.
During the summer he foremanized a lot
of government road and pack bridge
building which, needless to say, is giving best satisfaction.
Podunk Davis arrived back from the
coast and the A.Y.P. on Sunday. He
thinks that the Exposition is better than
the much talked of Chicago show.
J. O. Coulthard and family are on the
way over the Hope mountains to Princeton.!

FISH AND GAME ON EYERY
MAN'S TABLE.
It is unfortunate  that  the game
laws of British Columbia should be
subject to so  much  criticism  as to
changes  and  doubt as to meaning.
Since the game of this country enters largely into  food cousumptiou
it is important that the law regulating it should  cause  a minimum of
friction   and   irritation  instead  of
creating an annual outburst of complaint.    For better information and
understanding  of the  law reasons
in succinct form for changes should
be published with the advertisement
of the provincial game warden announcing said  changes.    The language of the  advertisement  ought1
to be in simplest  phraseology, void
of legal or   technical  terms.    Very
few hunters, prospectors  or travellers  pack  dictionaries  with them.
Instead of piecing out the province
into  a  number  of districts with a
different law for each it would save
much   confusion   and    inadvertant
infractions  of the   law if one were
framed   for  the whole province, or"
at most two,   divided  into the wet
, and dry belts by the Cascade range.
The.climatic conditions  and habits
ot game do not warrant more  than
one or two  districts, thus eliminating  fine  definitions  of boundaries
and   a  constant source of guess or
puzzle to   the   hunter  or fisherman
iu  the    vicinity of  an  imaginary
boundary.    Star would suggest the
least    possible   restrictions  in  the
taking of game and fish.    A people
having  a  plentiful supply of these
foods, leaving out the healthy sport
and expert use of firearms afforded,
will  undoubtedly   become superior
'mentally    and   physically.'     The
propagation  of fish  and  game by
artificial  means  would a thousand
fold  repay  the. government in the
attraction  for   tourists,   sportsmen
and hom,eseeker and in the general
betterment  of  food  supply.    And
no country possesses   the  natural
facilities  to  a  like  degree.    Here
are innumerable mountains, rivers,
lakes, creeks, valleys,   ideal homes
for food producing birds, beasts and
fishes.     Any  reasonable  expenditure along this line would be commended  by  the  people  generally,
in  opposition  to   the    harrassing,
cheeseparing policy now in vogue.
':%£   NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Lord Strathcona is beloved and
admired by Canadians—beloved for
his kind and sympathetic nature in
generous giving to education and
care of the sick, as well as many
other charities—admired because
from plain Mr. Smith in an obscure
Hudson Bay Co's post he has risen
to many honors.- HisjctLtle is, of
course, a mere bauble when weighed
with his noble deeds. No man living knows the Northwest. better
for it was there his millions were
made and himself linked with its
political and economic history in
striking figure. Lord Strathcona is
now over 89 years old and Star-
wishes him yet many more years of
usefulness and vigor. As Commissioner for Canada in Loudon he has
always entertained with splendid
hospitality all Canadians having
frindly intercourse with him. .
Alex. Laird, general manager of
the Canadian Bank of Commerce,
says there will be $75,000,000 of
surplus grain moni_'y for investment
by the farmers of western Canada
this year. At least one million of
that amount should sift into the
Similkameen. But it won't come
without solicitation.
How charming and encouraging
it is. to meet a person filled with
cheerful optimism. Compare him
with the pitiable pessimist who is
always cursing his own and others'
kick. Every town or.city should
have an optimists' club. Will you
join ?

That will be a good spec for Cook
and Peary to lecture from the same
platform each proving that the other
was never at at the poie.-
There   is   a   class   of newspaper
scribblers, as   in   every  other walk
of life, those who  cannot discuss a
subject   on   its   merits  and  for the
mutual benefit   and  information of
all concerned.    The  moment anyone  expresses    views  contrary   to
theirs  they   become  offensive  and
personal,  their  sole   aim   being to
drown   their  opponent in a torrent
of words   without   regard   to truth
or the  commonest   etiquette.     For
the fleeting pleasure it   gives  them
to  triumph   until  replied  to they
break the ordinary rules of decent
argument.    Star   recently ventured
an opinion on the  soundness of the
Washington   state  laws   regarding
marriage, and other enactments, ad:
mitting many  defects  in them but
commending them for  their goodly
aim and intent.    In return for that
humble  opinion  it  was quite deluged with 'words' containing not a
scintilla  of  enlightenment  on   the
subject.     On  the contrary   it was
half quoted  and  told  that no one
would read it or. believe it.    Star is
constructive  and still hopes for the
greatest measure of success  to  the
Washington reform legislation, opposed by our destructive critics.   In
future Star will  not  give heed to
any critic who  cannot  write sensibly and in good taste—its space is
too valuable.
