HOTEL BURNS DOWN
Great  Northern Destroyed in
Short Order, Incurs
Heavy Loss.
Large and Modern Building will Replace Old Landmark, to be
Erected Soon.
	
One of the largest fiies that Princeton
has ever known occurred last Bfiday
morning, March ist, when the Great
Northern hotel and a small buildirg
occupied l>y the Eastern Townships Bank,
both owned by Peter Swanson, were
u.teily desiroyed by fire. The fire started
about the roof where it came in contact
with the brick chimney, aud when first
observed, shortly after 5 o'clock by the
Chinese cook, could have been put out
witn a few buckets of water. Unlortu
nately there was no water in the water
works pipes belonging to the hotel and
the fire gained considerable headway
b.fore the generr.l alarm was sounded on
the town fire bell   jjjj-jt;
Dry Water Mains
The fire brigade and citizens generally
being aioused and the hose laid from the
hydrants on Bridge street it was expected
that the fire, still in its incipient stages,
would be quickly staunched and the
1 roperty saved. To tl}£ greqt amazement
of all there was no water in the mains
and therefore nothing to fight the fast
advancing flames. To save the buildings
was now a forlorn hope and all effort was
directed to saving of stock and effects.
As the fire reached the front of thai
hotel the heat was most intense -ent
dangering the Princeton drug store and
the new A E. Howse company's block
On the opposite side of the street, also
threatening the Thomas block 150 feet
away on the same side of the street as the
burning hotel. The heat scorched these
buildings, and it was only by the most
strenuous efforts that they were preserved.
A small supply of \ ater was obtained
from nearby wells with which to saturate
blankets hung over the outer walls and
this with a providential back draught of
air stopped advance of the fire fiend.
Water in the Tanks.
Without a drop of water under pressure to quell the roaring flame ALJE&s
painfully evident to the dumb and powerless onlookers that the whole town was
a. the mercy of the devouring element.
The question on everybody's tongue wasT
'What is the matter with tbe waterworks?' From officials of the Princeton
Waterwotks company it is learned that
there was three feet of water in the tauks
at 6 o'clock on the morning of the fire.
With that amount of water in the tanks
there should have been about 90  pounds
of pressure at any of. the hydrants on
Bridge street. It is a mystery to them
why no water was available as the mains
were all found perfectly intact. There
was ice in the tanks and that fact may.
perhaps, offer a solution of the unfortunate c mdition on the occasion in
question-.
The burning of the Great Northern
hotel removes a landmark in Princeton,
it being the oldest house in the business
It was originally the Hotel Jackson,
built by J. H. Jackson some dozen years
ago, the walls being cf logs, an annex
being added later by Manly & Swanson '
Three or four vears ago Mr Jackson so d
to Manly & Swanson, the latter finally
becoming sole proprietor. The buildiug
in which the Eastern Townships bank
was located w ould have been vacated on
Friday as that bank is now merged into
tie bank of Commerce. Bevond a little
office furniture the loss to the bank is
nominal, everything of particular value
being secure in the big safe. The total
loss will be in the neighborhood of $17,-
000, the insurance, it is understood, cov
tring $10,000.
Notes
Although the fire bell was rune with
vigor theie were a number of people who
never heard it. The local ion of the bell
probably hinders vibration, a matter that
Chief Gellatly will, no doubt, consider.
As a preventative of any lack of  wa
for future fires a close inquiry should  ffe
made   regarding   dry   water   pipes   last
Friday morning
Mr. Swanson intends to rebuild on a
much larger scale and will begin as soon
as adjustment of losses is made.
A striking coincidence is noticed in the
burning of three big hotels in Princeton,
all being burnt iu the first two weeks of
March. The first one burned was the
old Tulameen on March 2, 1904; the
second on March 12, 1911, and the Great
Northern on March r, 1912.
The Hole in the-Wall restaurant went
up in smoke. Although only about 8x10
in size many a hungry man had found
comfort and strength for the battle of life
within its portal.
Chief Gellatly and the fife brigade did
all in their power and are deserving eve;y
assistance and encouragement. ***-**
The many friends of Mr. and Mrs.
Swanson and their house full of guests
express sincere sympathy for their great
loss and serious inconvenience.
On last Monday forenoon the pump
house belongingj^-the^rinceton Waier-
works company was burned, giving fise
to a .st-rious comp!"Tc_iiuil"*s_'ould a fire
originate. The pumpiug machinery is
out of commission until repaired or a new
outfit installed. In the meantime extreme
precaution against any outbreak of fire
should be taken. The company give
notice that the water service will be cut
off for the present.

MINES AND MINING
Big   Placer Operations to be
Begun on Old Channel
Newton Creek.
Whipsaw  and Voigt  Camps Active
with Development—Ore is
Very Promising.
/'l-.iwash creek is giving promise of becoming a future mining camp of import
ance. The whole country is mineralized
and affords good prospecting. It is not
far fiom the Kettle Valley railway which
will build into this Section this year.
Tne B. C. Copper company,^ Voigt
camp, have no feet of crosscutting, all in
ore, on No. 14, and 600 feet of drifting
and csosscutting on No. 18. On the
Falum good ore is struck and all showings are very encouraging.
Knight & Day have struck a new shoot
of ore on the Lucky Pair, Whipsaw,which
assays 2 per cent copper, gold $1.20,
silver and lead values bringing total to
$40 per ton. The tunnel is now in 165
feet with no feet depth. They have 60
tons of choice ore in their bins and aie
anxious to obtain transportation.
The Princeton Coal & Land company
sent two big chunks of coal to the Spokane convention. It is supposed they
were burned or lost on Ihe way.
The Inland Development Compinyis
pushing work on their galena property
at Siwash creek. A tunnel and a large
open cut has been staftfcd. E. E. Coley
has charge of the <^ork.
When the old man Chance struck rich
■gold diggings in Granite creek in '85 little
mid he know, or any of his followers,
that it was fed by an 0I4. „ij.v . , .ch-'.n.pe'
tfar greater than the old river channel of
California, which only produces gold. It
was not for them to find. Yet they
worked part of it on a drifting claim
kno^jj^as the Pogue. abater VJB*xobert
Stevenson—worked' a part of it as a hydraulic claim, just aboye Granite creek,
thinking it was the old channel of
Granite creek. It seems to have beeri
left for an old prospector by the name of
j, W, Mnflann tn trnr. nut *••.<* flfaflnflf'l'
aud-be has traced it for more than fifty
miles, having been four seasons doing it.
Wherever it has been cut by a creek, or
river it produced rich placer gold and
platinum. Only a small part of the old
channel did the creeks ana ...vers take;
the greater part of/he old channel being
still in place. Thjeraaci_nt channel may
have once taken the pfilce of the Fraser
river and alsp"p_ay be thesrfme old channel that fed the Cariboefplacer mines, as
it has a southeast course. Nearly all
placers are fed by old channels. Even in
Alaska they had them  and   invariably
they are much richer than the creekf.
As there are several companies going to
s art work on the old channel with
hydraulic plant and dredges on the river
as soon as spring opens up, the Tulameen
and tributaries will soon show the world
that we have in British Columbia both
platinum aud gold in large quantities,
and in two or three years we will give
Russia a close race for the first place in
platinum.
"W^ORE SAMPLES WANTED

THE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
REAL IMPERIALISM.
Editor Star—Sir:    I, in common  with
many others, have read with amusement
the  report   published in   a recent  issue
of a resolution   passed,   nem.  con.,  at  a
meeting of our Orange  friends,  express
ing  sympathy with   the   Protestants  of
Ireland in their fight against home mle,
and further expressing the hope that they
would   be   successful   in their  effort to
maintain civil and  .eligious  liberty  and
keep   Ireland  as   a part  of the   British
empire.    Tbe   terms   of this   resolution
imply   that   home   rule   is   a   religious
question, the aim and'object ol which  is
to strike a  blow at  Protestantism   from
the effect of which she  will  ultimately
succumb  and  which,   therefore,  simply
means the administering  of her  quietus
in so far as Ireland is concerned.    I ven
ture to submit, sir,  that  such   a  view  is
utterly  erroneous.     Home  rule  has   no
religious   significance    whatsover,    save
such as  is manufactured   and  imported
into it by irreligious fanatics and political
partisans.      The    very    history    of  the
movement is in itself evidence of this for
one of the most  brilliant  leaders  of  the
m .vement, the man who  by  his  genius
and patriotism was instrumental in bringing it within the range of practical   politics, was himself a Protestant     I refer of
course  to   Parnell.    It<? advocates   have
been in the past, as are they  today,  men
of every station in  life, representatives of
every class and creed in the United Kingdom.    To judge by the resolution of our
O.'ange friends one would suppose  they,
and they alone, are the custodians oflaw
and   order, civil   and   religious   liberty.
We can, I imagine, easily dispose of this
pref-umptious  claim.    To  give  a   rectnt
concrete example typical of Orangeism's
'equal   rights  for  all   and  special privi
leges   for   none,''   some   two    or   three
months ago a large meeting of  unionists
(or   disruplionists,   to   give them   their
proper  title)   was  held  in   the   north of
Ireland for the purpose of discussing the
question.    It   was   reported (cum grano
salis) that some  two  hundred   thousand
people   attended,   including,   of course,
every Orange brass band in  the country
Now, the significant fact is .hat, althorgh
resolutions of the most   disloyal   and   rebellious character (thrs. of armed resist
ance and defiance of the 1 iw if, and when,
it became   operative), were passed,   this
- m eting was permitted   without   rerrion
strance   or   interference  of any kind on
the part of the supporters of horn:  rule.
But when the North  of Irelard   Liberal
Council    (oh    yes,  there   are   Liberals,
many of them, in the  north of Ireland)
invited one of the  most brilliant  members  of His  Majesty's  government, Mr.
Churchill, to visit   Belfast   and   address
them ou the burning topic  of the hour
immediately on it becoming known that
the   invitation   had   been accepted  and
that Mr. Churchill would speak in Belfast
on February 8, the   big  drum   was  once
more dragged forth and  howls  of indignation   wert  up   from  the   enlightened
Orangemen.    Mr.  Churchill  was not to
be permitted to speak, and fo prevent his
doing  so  the  blood  of   loyal   Irishmen
(Orangemen) would be  poured   out  and
not till the last  representative  aud  stalwart supporter  of the  union   had   been
shot down and cruelly  butchered should
it be possible for such  a  meeting to  be
held.    So the bluff was carried on   till  it
was seen the manner of man they had lo
deal with  when the   climb   down took
place.    The Orange and  kindred  associations began falling over each  other in
indecent haste so anxious  had  they  become to pass resolutions of non-interference, etc., and the  big   empty   bubble
burst.    It is clear ^these partisans  would
have, had they dared, stopped the meet-

THE FIRE :  ITS LESSON.
If eternal vigilance is the price of
liberty it is also the price of safety.
The disastrous fire of last Friday
morning has thrust the lesson home
to all citizens th it unwearying care
and watchfulness are necessary if
the town is to be preserved from the
ravages of fire and consequent business disruption Just when the
town could least afford the loss of a
large hotel, owing to the congested
condition of them all, one is snuffed
out in an hour through accident and
an inoperative water system. The
origin of the fire seems to have been
from either a defective chimney or
a stray spark, and the cause of the
failure of the water supply seems to
have resulted from the sealing of
the tanks with a coating of ice
thus destroying vent as in the case
of an airtight barrel or can of any
liquid. No blame can attach to
anyone for either the fire or tbe
lack of water. It was purely accidental and unforeseen. Under the
extraordinary conditions the whole
town might easily have been erased.
But the lesson of eternal vigilance
and thoughtfulness loses none of its
force through the accidental nature
of tbe occurrence. Hydraulics is a
very abstruse and technical subject
and there are often contingencies
arising from a waterworks system

patronage. As an encouragement
and compliment he should be returned by acclamation and the great
expense and trouble of an  election
saved.
Up-to the-tninute reports are to
the effect that no one will oppose
Mr. Shatford. That is as it should
be, and will add dignity and respect
to the Liberals and Socialists.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The edict has gone forth and the,
elections will be held on Thursd
28th inst.. nominations on the 14th.
If reason prevails there will be no
election in the Similkameen. Mr.
Shatford has made exceedingly
good, is deservedly popular and is
not a bitter partisan. In his constituency his opponents, be they
Liberal or Socialist, are not discriminated against and all get employment and a fair distribution  of
Duue. Ross says the Liberal
party is shackled. He is right, aud
he more than anyone brought about
that condition in the one term he
represented Yale-Cariboo by his
juggling methods and absolute incapacity for reform. So long as
the Liberal party harbors such men
as he in its councils the shackles
will remain and Liberalism in this
province will amount to a big Q.

ABOUT POULTRY RAISING
BY X  C.  BROOKE
In presenting our 1912 announcement
for thoroughbred White Leghorn egg
settings I wish to thank the many patrons
for their favors extended me during the
time engaged iu the poultry business at
Keremeos, and in soliciting further support I wish to say that since my association with Dr John We.-twood in the
firm of Westwood & Brooke at Princeton,
many advantages for the production of
first-class stock and eggs have been de
rived, and which include unlimited
range for the stock under ideal conditions, as well as the introduction of
some of the finest blood obtainable on
the American continent to our stock.
This year our birds are better than
ever before and year by year we shall
endeavor to breed up to a higher standard. Our ambition is two-'old: To
produce birds that are persistent and
consistent layers, and that also fulfil the
standard requirement of physical beauty.
In the matter of laying we are succeeding astonishingly, as our egg records
show for December, Januarv and Febru
ary. Our egg yield for those months,
when eggs have been highest, has been
over 60 per cent.
As to beauty, we are proud of our
birds and of the ribbons they have won
during the past year in the hottest competition of the western states. This-is
tbe very best evidence we could give of
the combined qualities of our stock.
We notice also that our best looking
birds are invariably our best lajers. By
best layers we mean birds that approach
or pass the 200 egg per year mark, and
we. have chosen for our 1912 rnatings
birds that will more than average 2co
eggs and are bred from stock with records
One can ea.ily figure out the gross income from a hen that lays 200 eggs \ er
\ ear or over, when the average price for
11 w laid eggs in British Columbia for the
year is four cents each.
We breed and shall devote our time to
White Leghorns, because they are without doubt the leading egg producing
variety; and to substantiate this claim I
refer you to the leading poultry farms in
America that are out for market eggs and
are also ou a paying basis, you will find
they are stocked with   White   Leghorns.
Tu get the right strain is just as essential as to get the right variety, but my
own'experience has taught me, and also
convinced, that it makes no difference
how good tbe stock may be the eggs are
from, if the chicks do not get the proper
food and care they will never mature into
prize winners or even good layers.
In conclusion, let me assure anyone
about to embark in the poultry business
that it is just like any. other business:
What you get out ot it depends entirely
on what you put into it. It isn't a case
of just throw out the feed and gather in
the eggs. The very best stock is only
half the battle, care and attention is the
other half. The combination that wins
is good stock plus intelligent handling
You can take good stock and they will
do well even under poor conditions, but
you cannot make poor stock do well under any conditions.
Iu our 1912 matings we offer you tbe
stock and are confident if yon fulfil your
part we shall have another satisfied
customer.
Assuring you from past experience
that the kind that pays is the best, and
again thanking you far past favors, assuring you of prompt attention to future
ones.

to the average, being boned
on the biasinstead of straight
up and down like other
corsets. It is this difference
in the way they are made,
which makes them so strikingly easy and comfortable,
and those who have never
worn a Bias Filled have yet
to know what the right
corset will do for them. Its
bouings and clasps will not
rust, and the fabric will not
tear with the hardest and
trost constant use. Every

everything about them is

THE     SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
REAL, IMPERIALISM
From 3rd page.
ing by the introduction of scenes of
rowdyism and hooliganism such as clean
and right minded citizens sh.ink from
with loathing and disgust, making an end
once for all of the Britisher's unalienable
right of free speech and civil liberty In
view of these facts the position of our
Orange friends, posing as the defenders
of either religious or civil liberty, is
surely one of canting hypocrisy.
What, however, makes sensible people
lee tired is the fact of a body of men
utterly ignorant of important questions
affecting, vitally, imperial unity and ex
pansion, and incapable, by reason of their
lack of knowledge, to form, much less to
pronounce, opinions, flagrantly violating
the principle of good citizenship by passing resolutions that are fundamentally
false, and by sending messages of sympathy to men whose raison d'etre would
seem to be the perpeluntion of strife.
Stripped of irreligious cant what is the
present position regarding home rule?
It is simplv that the present a .visers pf
His Majesty feel that it is imperative,
first, on the ground ot expediency and,
secondly, on that of common justice the
Irish question should be disposed of
On either counts the arguments are overwhelming. Taken on the ground of expediency it is vital in the interest of the
state that the present congestion in the
parliamentary machine at Westminster
should be removed To that end, there
fore and as a beginning, the government
P'opose to get rid of one of the chief
causes of congestion by handing over to
the Irish people authority to legislate
and govern in all matters of a purely
Irish character. On the other hand it is
a gued that Ireland has not been and is
not being governed on lines calculated to
give best results and that the natural re
sources of the country have not been and
are not being developed to the best advantage. To quote the words of probably
the greatest statesman Canada has pro
duced: "English government in Ireland
is a blot upon the escutcheon of British
statesmanship." Whilst in the opinion
of the imperial government the granting
of autonomy simply means the winning
over of the Iiish people not only in Ireland but throughout the world; the
c-eating of a spirit of such absolute loyalty
and devotion as will enrich the nation
anrt the empire more than would the
acquisition of many divisions of military
and many warships of the Dreadnought
type. That being so I think every lover
of our empire should rejoice that the
titne is so near at hand when the old
hatch t shall have been buried and a new
era opened up; when every Irishman can
greet his brother Englishman and fellow
subjects throughout the world with a
toast which shall be their common and
glorious heritage: '"One king, one flag,
one empire, united we stand, divided
we fall "    Yours very truly,
Imperialist.
