THE BOARD OF TRADE
Better Police—Protection and
Enforcement of Laws by
Proper Authority.
Big Crop of Correspondence—Ore Exhibit at Spokane—Advertise
the Similkameen.
The regular meeting of the Board of
Trade held on Monday night dealt with
several important matters, the following
members being in attendance : Marlow,
Waterman, Thurburn Conn, Brown, Lazier, Hall, Avery, Murdoch and Wright.
Communications were read as foilows:
From the deputy of the Minister of
Marine and Fisheries, Ottawa, acknowledging receipt of communication of 7 th
June, forwarding copy of resolution of
the Board on the subject of Naval Defence and thanking for same.
From R.; L. Broadbent, Seattle, A.Y.P.,
stating that Princeton ore exhibits had
arrived and were on exhibition, also saying : 'We have a splendid exhibit from
B.C.' A vote of thanks was tendered
Mr. Broadbent for dutiful attentions and
pains in following delayed ore samples
and for his kindly interest in, and information for, the Board.
From Heaton's Commercial Agency,
Toronto, re writeup in the 'Commercial
Handbook.' The Board instructed tbe
Secretary to take small space as specified
and to furnish the matter for writeup.
To Sow Seeds of Information.
From G. S. Lawrence, re advertising
scheme, suggesting cooperation of Board
with Hedley and Keremeos boards in
issue of book descriptive of all the varied
resource* of the Similkameen. In the
discussion which ensued the weight of
opinion favored some such scheme of
publicity but that the financing difficulties could scarcely be overcome, the
amount required for a first class work of
10,000 copies with plenteous illustrations
would be approximately $1500. Further
action delayedKuntil promoters communicate.   *
From L. K. Armstrong, Mineral Department, Spokane Fair, inviting an ore
exhibit for the exposition to be held September 20 to 25. Committee appointed
to act.
From A. E. Fleming, Box 119, New
Westminster, inquiring about prices of
farm lands and requesting general information of town and country. Secre-
ytry to reply.
From Bush & Co., Seattle, re ore samples.   Matter adjusted.
Town Must have Good Name.
The attention of the Board was directed
to the lack of police protection and the
consequent prevalence of disorderliness
and drunkenness on the public streets.
It was pointed out that the constable,
with much of his time in service at the
government office, could not well attend
to his duty of preserving the peace by
patrolling the streets. The necessity for
an officer whose whole time would be
devoted to enforcement of the law was
strongly empasized by the whole board.
The whole subject was referred to the
magistrates with the respectful request of
the Board to at once take such steps as
would remove from the public streets
such bestial exhibitions and foul language
as had been prevalent in the past.
Committee on literature for railway
bulletins have not done anything yet.
Board adjourned at late hour.
LIME AND BRICK.
H. B. Brown was in town Monday and
incidentally drew a piece of limestone
from his pocket which interested some
bystanders very much. The fact that
lime has to be freighted here and costs
about $35 per ton makes it a subject of
deep interest. Mr. Brown is a good
American with the business facnlty prominent and well developed and while a
man would be making a 'pass' or two at
a mosquito on the tip of his nose, he (Mr.
Brown) had a depot established in Princeton from which his lime and btick, too,
will be delivered. A man of few words
and to the point he briefly stated that
he will be able to supply local demands
with Ai lime and brick in about another
month.

TOWN AND DISTBICT.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce will

inst.
Read the advertisement of the Royal
Medicated Stock Food Co. on the 3rd
pagt.
The entire staff of this paper celebrated
Dominion Day, resulting in a lot of personals and local news being left out.
Jim Snowden has begun work on his
new house.
Mrs. Daly and family, of Keremeos,
are encamped here during roundup of
cattle.
Dominion Day in Princeton was religiously observed, as usual, business
being generally suspended and everyone
bent on that loyal observance of the
national day which marks the patriot.
The celebration this year partook more
of the nature of a reunion, or family
gathering, not many' strangers being
present and the usual fanfaronade absent.
The weather was perfect and warm
enough to make one seek the shade
which could not always be found.
All the events were thoroughly enjoyed and nothing transpired to mar the
pleasure of the day. The grand civic
ball in the Oddfellows' hall in the evening was attended by the youth and
beauty of the district and was the best
ever held in Princeton. Keremeos and
Hedley gave their quotas of visitors, but
Otter Valley showed a marked falling off
due largely to other attractions and sundry causes. The prize of $100 offered for
baseball was not competed for, there
being no entries. Last year the same
amount drew three teams into the tournament, but this year there apparently was
little interest taken in the prize or the
sport.
Visitors Won at Figeon Shoot.
The trap shooting contest for the Shatford trophy was close, resulting in the
Hedley team winning by the narrow
score of 3 birds, twenty-five birds being
allowed each competitor. The score was
as follows:
Hedley—French, 12; Harris, 20 ; Rolls,
19; Whillans,* 15.   Total, 66.
Princeton—Irwin, 16 ; Lazier, 12; Waterman, 23 ; Lumsden, 12.   Total, 63.
First and second special prizes, a pair
of gold cuff links and gold tie pin given
by J. R. Campbell for the highest scores,
won by E. Waterman and Mr. Harris.
Horse Baces Close and Exciting.
The horse races were the chief attraction ; the track, management and every
other condition being favorable for good
sport.   Following is a list of the winners :
Six hundred yards race, W. Garrison's
Cultus Baldy 1st, $85 ; 2nd, Hans Rich-
ter's McGinty, $25.
Cowboy race, F. Garrison's Johnny

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The  Similkacaeen Valley has  a
:larger variety  of natural resources
than any  other  similar  area in all
■Canada.    Yet  there  is little being
done  to  induce  capital  tcacquire
and develop  them.    There is work
for the  boards  of trade  along the
line of advertising   and unless it is
undertaken  by  them  there  is not
much likelihood of anything being
done.    Information is being sought
in every mail by  outsiders, but too
often the replies  of individuals are
biassed by self interest  and in total
disregard . of  the  general  good ot
the  district.     The  newspapers  in
the Similkameen are  doing all that
is possible  with  their limited bona
j fide subscribers and advertising sup-
.port to present a  weekly resume of
local facts ;. perhaps they are in advance  of the  times and as yet unappreciated ; but it is  through  the
.medium  of books  or   booklets  as
permanent   reference literature that
attention is riveted on any section.
within specified hours and prohibiting depraved women from frequenting bars, the prevention of
hereditary disease by permitting
only the physically fit to unite in
marriage, the compulsory observance of a Sunday rest day, these
and many more sections of the law
are good and beneficial. Of course
any radical law will meet with opposition and will be . ridiculed, by
the lukewarm jellyfish who cannot
stem the current of a certain class
of public opinion. Washington Has
made a good beginning ; all honor
and success to her. What is British' Colombia doing ? ;j i -'■ f
■ffihe report of the. Minister of
Mine*, B.C., for the year 1908 contains much valuable information
of the mineral resources, raeir development and product. The report is well illustrated and in every
way a credit to the department.
For the S'iinilisam.een Mining Division the Mining- Recorder gives a
synoptic review"of the coal and
metallic claims in Princeton and
vicinity. Tbe fact of railroad
transportation being still absent ib:
mentioned and the inference made
that mining will receive much benefit from its completion. The total
mineral production for 1908 was
$23,851,277 making a grand total
production for the past half century
of $323.377.559-

r There was annncrease of over 900,-

There are signs of an approach
ing prrrincial general election. It.
is the opinion of many who are
usually politically wise that they
will take place in the latter part of
the autumn. It is not likely there
will be an election in the Similkameen, at least, there is hardly any
occasioa for one.
Curious fashion that among the
