Onlyone Princeton, center of great miileral resources.
LKAMEEM
Deeds, not Words, are what a person is measured by. £%4^r
With a number of large enterprises under way, others well within the realms of certainty ; with land values appreciating, railroads building
and development all around, what fairer prospect could be desired ?—Vast mineral wealth quite untouched—Homes for the million—Reciprocity.
Vol. XII. No. 9.
PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1911. $2 a Year in Advance
MEMBER MAKES GOOD
Estimates for Similkameen are
$132,000 for Roads
and Trails.
Mr. Shatford Addresses House on Live
Topics, Emphasizing Delay
on V„V. & E.
!  That the Similkameen electoral district
has again received fair recognition of its
needs  for  toads  and  streets will not be
denied in view of the large appropriation
made in the estimates of expenditure for
£_he'year ending  31st   March, 1912.    The
provincial government, acting upon the
. recommendations of the member for Sim-
- ilkameen, Mr. Shatford, voted the magnificent sum of $138,000 to.-be  expended
under the head of 'roads, streets and
* wharves '    If to   this amount  is  added
the expenditure for hospitals, public
' schools,  provincial   police,   government
ofBc-Vi'^tc, a grand total of over $150,-
: 000 will be obiained..
The Growing Time.
Last year the appropriation was % 102,-
000, the large increase this year being
due to general expansion in mining, agriculture _n*n natural resources throughout the district. The total vote for the
province is $12,103,597; last year it was
$9,019,559. The estimated revenue for
the fiscal year ending 31st March, 1912,
is $8,192,101, a wide disparity being evi
dent between estimated receipts and ex
penditure. This, however, is due rather
to a policy than to actual' conditions as
borne out by last year's surplus of $5,-.
224,747, and the anticipated surplus of
the present year. The government mus)
be congratulated on their wise, progres
sive and economical administration.
Premier and People.
The premier is a tried and proven legis
lator in whom the people have abounding confidence He is a booster of the
right sort, one who does 'not get giddy
when boosted to the pinnacle of provincial fame. Star, in all hnmility, utters
only this caution to him : That he receive no more of those quarreling Liberal members vtho run to his protecting
dare after a family jar. Perhaps the present Liberal leader in the house is amicably inclined and will not fall out with
any more of'his followers.    Eh !
Member Fulfils Promises.
Mi. Shatford has so completely filled
his duties and  the   expectations of his
jr.. _.. jl _ - »   . .
constituents that one hears from men of!|ed in turpentine, over the plaCe where it
divergent political views words of high Jjis desired to cut the glass, light it and
praise. The estimates are eloquent of Msprinkle the glass with cold water, where-
his willingness to serve and promote thejiipon a slight pressure will suffice to
interests of his constituency. No greater! break it sharply along the line followed

be offered than is contained in the six
simple figures quoted above. His views
are always sound and practical, of which
the following are excerpts:
Eich in Minerals.
'He said that he was very glad to see
that the provincial mining output was
increasing yearlv, He thought the min
eral resources of his own district were
well known to members of the House,
because he had on more than one occa
sion brought it to their attention. In the
early sixties Granite ^j^Jl^, at one end of
his constituency and Rock Creek at the
other, were among the first districts to
attract placer miners, and today the Nickel Plate mine of his district was the
largest producers of-gold in the province.
The district had also large gold mines,
notably at Princeton and _t Granite
Creek, where there were companies at
present carrying on large development
work. He found, however, in the last
mining report issued by the government
that the maphad not shown „he Hedley
camp. - He had brought this to the at-
Tention of the provincial mineralogist,
but for some reason he had seen fit to ignore it, and so he would ask the minister
of mines to take a note of it, and see that
the next department map showed Hedley
on it.'
That Deadening Delay.
'Turning next to railway construction;
Mr. Shatford said that the building of
the Kettle River Valley lire, the Cana''
dian Northern Pacific and the V. V. & E.
would mean much to the'people of British Colunibia. In his own constituency
they had been greatly disappointed in the
Great Northern. Five years ago thev had
been told by the officials of the Great
Northern that in four or five years the$
would have their railway through to th|
coast, but for some reason they had seeq
fit to delay it, and he regretted that the
Dominion government had extended
their charter for five years, as he considered that three years should have been
sufficent. So far as the Kettle River Val
ley railway was concerned, he thought
they would have their line completed
within the time stipulated. This line
would not only bring much business and
prosperiry to the Similkameen and other
districts to be opened up by it, but it
would also bring much business to the
coast cities, business that now went to
Spokane ahd other cities across the line.'
The sun is swinging north again,
The days are growing longer ;
Jack Frost m.y still cling to the pane,
But hope each day grows stronger.

CEMENT HOUSES NOW
Buildings Made Wholly from
Cement are Fireproof
and Lasting.
Large Cement Works at Princeton is
About to be Started—Bonds
Selling Rapidly.
Evidently Edison, the inventor, has'
solved the problem of cheap houses made
of cement. In Montreal a'contract for
500 houses built of cement from top to
bottom and fire proof has been entered
into, the-price being cheaper than for
any other building material. This is the
beginning of the cement a'ge, the wooden!
age is rapidly passing away.
Princeto'n .is fortunate in having located,
at its door a large cement works which!
will not only employ a large number ofj
men but.will supply the town with ce^
ment min„s railway freight charges.
With the arrival of Mr. Osborne work
on the B.C. Portland Cement ,Co's plant
will begin. The stock in this company
is selling rapidly and the enterprise is
bound to be a money-maker from the
stast.lds.-,

GOLD DREDIGING. PROBABLE.
Wm. B'ry left for Vancouver yesterday
on a short business trip. The placer testing drill which he has engaged on the
river leases has sunk holes in about a
dozen places and is now about a mile
below the forks of the rivers. No information is given out as to the result of
prospecting the rivers for gold and platinum but it is known that Mr. Fry has
recently added largely to his leaseholds
abd a report is current that values to the
amount of a dollar per cubic yard have'_>.J

OPERA SINGERS COMING.
The famous English Opera Singers,
headed by Juniata Rush, prima donna,
and Chas. Picqnet, tenor, will be heard
here Monday, March 6th at I. O. O. F.
hall in their sparkling musical comedy
success, "Managing Mildred." The play
deals with the troubles of a young man
and his college chum in convincing the
young ladies in whom they are interested
that a stage career is not half as exciting
as a visit to the pastor and a life of matrimony in a four room flat. The various
complications arising from the deceptions
the young plotters are forced to employ
furnish amusement of the right kind for
an entire evening.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Reciprocity, or the freest kind of
free trade, would not hurt the consumer in Princeton. See some of
the prices: Bacon, per lb., 35c;
lard, per lb., 25c; salt pork, 25c;
butter, 40c; eggs, per doz., 60c;
apples, per box, 48 lbs , $2; potatoes, per lb., 2^c: flour, per cwt.,
$4.20. Fruit has always been very
high in price here, peaches, plums,
apricots and pears from 10 to 15
cents per pound, and grapes 20c.
British Columbia does not produce
enough of any one article of food
to meet the requirements of home
consumption and per capita it pays
nearly double into the customs revenue collected from eastern provinces. Reciprocity will go a long
way toward settling the question of
provincial rights and equalizing the
burdens imposed by high tariff.
Premier McBride has become grey-
haired with agitation over provin
cial rights, now he may have it
restored to its primal raven beauty
if he will endorse reciprocity. But
he is like thousands of ultra Con
servatives who place party before
country.
Because Uncle Sam has proposed
to Miss Canada it does not follow
that he will gobble the gal. He
has always observed the Monroe
doctrine and must do so still.
Reciprocity has given the ranters
and taunters another opportunity
to wave the old flag for political
party purposes. It is the old game
and the old trick, but it must fail,
as it always has, because it is not
founded on fact. Those newspapers opposing reciprocity with
the United States, true to their monopolistic instincts, claim for their
party all the loyalty and the others
they condemn as traitors, ready to
sell their country for a trifle. No
right minded citizen or honorable
Canadian would accuse his fellow
subjects of disloyalty because they
desired freer trade with their neighbors. Loyalty is not based on dollars and cents, nor upon any considerations of free and fair trade in
which both countries give and receive value for concessions agreed
upon and assented to. Loyalty
springs from the soul, from love of
home and country aud the editor
who accuses others of placing a
price on their loyalty is himself
guilty of that same thing, for it
must be in his heart or he would
not have uttered it. Like the
Pharisee of old, 'holier than thou,'
so the prating loyalist who flaunts
the flag on ever so slight pretext—
he is not to be trusted alone near
a hen roost on a dark night.
The Ottawa Citizen, an old line
Tory newspaper, says regarding
reciprocity : 'Nothing in the agreement would seem to justify the
statements in opposition to it, that
'it will weaken the imperial tie' or
' result in Canada's annexation to
the United States.'
