time is fast approaching when development will prove all that has been said in favor of this country—Now, is investing time.

MINES AND MINING
SilveraLead Properties Wanted
in Developing Stage
at Present.
Whipsaw Camp Offers Good Inducements for Capital—Work at
United Empire.
Owing to the low price of copper there
is today a strong demand for silver-lead
properties partially developed and requiring big capital.
The Hedley Goldmines Co. employ
about 150miners. Jwhap/would Princeton do with such a bi£rT>ayroll ?
Leo McMullen returned from the
Boundary Tuesday and reports favorably
on mining conditions in that section.
His samples of ore from the Glacier Peak
country, Skagit, were eagerly viewed by
mining men, the native silver showing
plainly. The ""assay gave 23 ozs silver.
Yz oz. gold, and 30 p.c. lead. All that
the owners McMullen and Snowden,
want now is a wagon road, the ore will
do the rest.
Chas. Graham, superintendent of the
Princeton Coal aud Land Co's mine, will
leave tomorrow for Nanaimo, having re
signed his position here. During his
term much improvement and development were carried out underground. As
an official he was both popular and efficient and carries away with him the esteem and good wishes of citizens.
Sam Spencer and wife came in from
Whipsaw Monday and speaks glowingly
of his mineral property there. He expects to put in the winter at work in
the camp. Some very fine specimens of
zinc ore, very high grade, from his property, will be sent to the Nelson Expo
and from there to the Spokane Fair.
Billy Knight found gold in his well
while cleaning it out the other day. No
use in talking, if a man's luck runs that
way, he will find gold and silver any old
place. Up in Whipsaw Knight & Day
have found the real thing and all they
want is a road to begin hauling to
Princeton for shipment to the smelter.
Jack Crowley is down from Whipsaw
the first time in months, and is enthusiastic over the prospects of that camp.
James Holden, of Hosmer, arrived yesterday to assume the duties of superintendent of the Princeton Coal and Land
Co's mine, made vacant by Mr. Graham's
resignation.
COLD WAVE IS GENERAL.
This seems to be an off year all over
the western half of the continent, insofar
as climate and crops are affected.   The
recent sudden   drop   in   temperature in
Princeton was general all over the west.
In Denver, Col., a thousand miles south
of Princeton, the temperature iowered
13 degrees in 10 minutes, and 49 in 7
hours. According to United States Weather Forecaster Brandenburg, the sudden
change in temperature was caused by
atmospheric disturbances resulting from
the contest between the hot air from the
fire-swept districts and the snow covered
mountains of the continental divide. At
6 p.m. in Cheyenne, Wyo., the thermom
eter registered 38, the lowest on the
weather map. In view of the foregoing
it is not at all surprising that frost was
felt at Princeton, but this is not the normal condition of the climate here, as some
would try to make out.
THE UNITED EMPIRE.
Railway Spur to be Laid for Cement
Works and Coal Mine.
The United Empire is runn^g t. T<_*
shifts every 24 h""rs "% the new tunnel,
thetild. one having been abandoned on
account of the dangerous nature of the
soil in caving. The United Empire will
be ready to ship coal as soon as the spur
is laid from the main line of the V.,V;
& E. to the mine. The coal will be
mined at a depthj__fabout_2oo feet and is
of a splendid quality, being sitoiTSf to
the Princeton fuel.
The cement works to be constructed
are located near the coal mine and will
consume some_fifty tons of its product
each day for roasting and steaming purposes. While the cement works is a separate proposition and will operate under
a Dominion company charter yet some
of the United Empire people are identified with its inception and will further
the scheme vigorously.
In connection with these two large undertakings of mining and manufacturing
a townsite will be laid out and thus the
foundation begun on which to rear a
large frontier—city. All the adjuncts of
a real live town will be introduced and
its proximity to Princeton instead of
beiug a detriment will act as a wholesome incentive to development and activity, the citizens of both places dwelling in harmony and unity of purpose,
building up the country generally, thus
aiding individual prosperity and progress, iwt.
Grand Forks Gazette : When you hear
a man sneering at the local paper because it is not big, cheap and newsy as
the city papers, you can safely bet he is
either in debt to the paper or he does not
squander any of his wealth in assisting
to make it better and that generally the
paper has done more for him than he has
for it. The man who cannot appreciate
the local newspaper at its worth in boosting alone is about as much value to a
town as a delinquent tax list.
Bridge street sidewalks are being built
by the yard to be worn out by the foot.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Labor Day is next on Annual
Program—Forest Fires
Die Down.
Waterworks   Construction   in   Full
Swing—Hospital Building is
Fine Structure.
Labor Day will be celebrated next
Monday in Hedley and an inviting program of sports has been issued. A number of Princetonians are going as spec
tators, while a shooting and football contingent will go down to show how it is
done.
Forest fires that turned the heavens
black with smoke have died out and
the atmosphere is again normal.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry of Vancouver arrived last Saturday over the Hope trail
on a visit to Mr. and Mrs. McDougall.
They met with - two or three inches of
fresh snow on the summit. Mr. Henry
is one of the faculty of McGill.
It is a subject of repeated query why
there should be any difference in the
rent of telephone instruments along the
government line. In some tciwns it is
said that the rent is as low as $ 1 per
month.   Why this discrimination ?
J. R. Campbell has gone to Ft. George
and expects to start up in the drug business there.
H. Massonat, still ill in a Spokane hospital from the effects of a second surgical
operation, has not made as good progress
as was hoped and Mrs. Massonat has re
turned from his bedside to conduct the
jewelry and watchmaking business.
Podunk Davis has re-covered the
bridges at Twelve and Fourteen mile
creeks on the Hope trail, which makes
good going to the Summit. He is now
putting up a bridge at the '23' on the
Sumallow.
Bo.ard of trade regular meeting will be
postponed on account of Labor Day
from next Monday evening to the following Monday at 8 o'clock.
Tony Ditzio, the Italian who stabbed
his compatriot, Dominic Motia, at Mad-
den's No. 2 camp two weeks ago, is still
held on remand by Magistrate Thomas,
pending the recovery of the wounded
man. Special Constable Martin arrested the prisoner.
Constable Ewart has under surveillance
a horse thief who, it is believed, ran off a
horse in a band being driven toward
Ashcroft.
The civic waterworks being laid down
by the Princetou Coal & Land Co., will
soon have the pipe distributed throughout the business center. The reservoir
tanks have the substructure in place and |
the receiving and distributing mains will
shortly be connected.' The pumping
machinery ana tanks remain to be installed.
R. G. Belvidere left yesterday for Penticton, where he has a good position. He
reports that town quite lively and prosperous owing to the railway possibilities
of the near future.
Some persons spend minutes in charity
and months advertising it.
Miss Manly, teacher, returned today
from her vacation trip to Edmonton, Alberta and Clinton.
Bert Irwin is making good headway on
the hospital and will have it ready well
within the specified time.
Superintendent Morgan of the Great
Northern accompanied by other officials'
and mining men, was in town Saturday
in his private car and took a look over
the Princeton Coal and Land Co's coal
mine.
GAME REGULATIONS.
The following regulations for shboting
and hunting game will be of interest to
local sportsmen :
Blue and willow grouse and ptarmigan
may be killed between the 1st of September and 31st of December. Prairie chicken during the month of October, only.
Duck, geese and snipe may be killed
between the 1st of September and the
28th of February.
The above fowl may be offered for sale
during the months of October and November only.
Deer may be killed between the 1st of
September and the 15th of December.
Deer may be sold between the 1st of
September and November 15th.
No boy under 16 years of age is allowed to carry firearms unaccompanied
by parent or guardian.
1 PIERRE OF THE PLAINS.'
The play, 'Pierre of the Plains,' rendered before a large audience last Friday
night, was full of interest, especially to
those who are familiar with thehalfbreed
of the plains, the naked walls of the
roadhouse, the riders and the usual characters one would find hanging atound'an
outpost or fort of some twenty and five
years ago. The author comes very near
to drawing the real life of all his impersonations. Pierre is probably higher
minded than the typical halfbreed, for
the commingling of the redskin and
paleface usually produced in their progeny the worst features of both. Harold
Nelson made a very real and effective
halfbreed in language and manner, and
Grace Johnson was a capital 'Jen.'
The author of 'Pierre of the Plains,' Sir
Gilbert Parker, should be able to find
material for a good breezy play depicting
the simple, western, life in the Similkameen, where Rattlesnake Pete, Bill
Miner and Major this and Colonel that,
have made history. Altogether the show
was exceptionally good.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Independent of every shade of
political belief a hearty reception is
given everywhere to Premier Laurier, now the guest of this province. That is at it should be, and
further, it is due him as a faithful,
eminent and competent statesman.
He has devoted a long life to the
service ot his country in which he
has been singularl}' free from any
personal taint. His conduct has
been exemplary for the army of
public servants under him.

We have money
T* _!_  -
How unlike Sir Wilfrid the mass
of those in service of the Dominion ? What exposures of graft aud
thieving in the departments at
Ottawa, of which everyone has
read. And if it occurs under the
very nose of ministers at the capital, where the leaven of corruption
seems to be centralized, what must
the rottenness and incompetency be
in.public offices far away from the
seat of government ? In some of
the departments the ministers
are powerless to check evils and the
public have to suffer.
One instance out of many may be
-cited where officialism dominates
and the minister has to obey. The
superintendent of the Dominion
telephone line, Mr. Stevens, holds
two positions, one for the government and the other for a private
line, drawing pay from both. How
can this man serve two masters?
Naturally, where his affections are,
that is where his money is invested, he will render the best service.
The public know how well their
interests and convenience have been
served.
Sir Wilfrid laid great stress on
the Oriental question in his Vancouver speech indicating that it was
the cause of Liberal losses in B.C.
The Oriental question is important
and the restrictive law as it now is
gives general satisfaction in B.C.
The 'question' was not an issue in
last general election. But Sir Wilfrid is statesman enough to now
make it an issue, so as not to disclose the real cause of Liberals falling away. That 'real cause' is
graft, bossism, favoritism, poor public service resulting from incompetent servants, 'coarse work' of the
previous Liberal M P's, etc. And
there will be a greater falling away
if the Augean stables are not cleaned out before next election.

TARMING AND FRUIT GROWING
AT HIGH ALTITUDES.
Some complaining ones in and around
Prippgton who declare fruit and vegetables cannot be grown here owintj to tbe
altitude should not speak unadvisedly or
unknowingly. No one but a 'freak'
would condemn the country that has
been kind to him because the frost nipped his spuds in a 2x4 garden or played

feet.) :

laud indicates that improved lands situated 3500 feet above sea level and over

revenue producers in a remarkable way.
A few miles from Rossland Mr. Peters
has a farm of 250 acres of which 50 are
improved. From this 50 he has sold 125
tons of hay at $26 per ton, and from a
raspberry patch he has sold 300 crates of
■the fruitvaf $3  per crate.   Some weeks

Fruit growers in Rossland district are
making preparations to send a splendid
exhibit of fruit grown at high elevations
to the Vancouver apple show. Last Sunday the sum of $200 was raised in a few
minutes as a contribution towards the
expenses in connection with this event.'
The knocker of Princeton and district

fruit growing here, as there are in othtr
