Important Mining Deal in Process—
I Railway Projected to Steamboat
Mountain Camp.
T. J. Corwin, of Vancouver, who is
interested in the gold-platinum placers
of this district left Monday after an examination of _ln_ "field for mining. His
company will prospect here during the
winter aud, atiidy tbe ..best method of recovering the precious metals.
E. P. Galliac recently scSld* a quarter
interest in his coal property on Onemile
for $12,500.
The Granite-Poorman, one of the oldest mines in the Kootenays, is about to
resume shipping after a long shut-down.
One of the largest miniug deals in the
Similkameen, in which the Gnggen-
heitns are principals, is reported to be
about completed.
Steamboat Mountain gold camp is the
drawing card for Vancouver capital.
Whipsaw is active among mining men,
and enquiries are coming freely.
I. N. Dally, coal expert, of Seattle, was
in town last week and made inspection
of some coal propositions in this section.
A. H. Kelly, of Nelson, a well known
mining man in the Kootenay country, is
a visitor to Princeton and is being chaperoned over different mining propositions by W. C. McLean. Mr. Kelly is
very much impressed with our vast mineral resources.
The 'mining town of Florence, N.S.,
was recently flame swept, doing damage
to the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Co.
amounting to $100,000.
Col. Stevenson, the veteran prospector,
goldhunter and pioneer, returned Monday from Hedley hospital feeling fit and
skookum, as of yore.
POWER FROM * WHITE COAL.' ,
Another enterprise of great value _o_
Princeton is shortly to be launched in
this section, the preliminary stages of
which are now being advanced. It has
long been a well known fact that the
Similkameen river affords the finest
water facilities in the country for the development of power The natural fall of
the river and its large volume will give
power sufficient to supply all requirements. At first, the development of
3000 horse power is all that will be provided. Hydro-electric power is the
handiest, cheapest, safest and most reliable. W. C. McDougall is at the head of
. ^he project and is already applying for
water rights. The awakening into business activity caused by the generation-of
power from 'white coal' is a welcome
feature wherever it has been introduced
and Princeton will not, in all likelihood,
prove an exception.
KING IS COMING.
King Keunedy, the renowned conjuror
and ventriloquist, will give one of his
unique exhibitions in Princeton on Wednesday, Nov. 30. Many thousands of
feet of new moving picture films will be
a part of the show. King makes the
rather pathetic announcement that this
will probably be his last appearance, as
he 'is not so young as he used to be.'
His show is clean and interesting and
cannot fail to please. See him on this
his goodbye tour and you will always
have something pleasant to think about.
Aduits 50c; children 25c.
EXCESSIVE COAL TARIFF.
The Nelson board of trade has taken
up the question of freight rates on coal
from the producing points. Gait coal
costs Nelson dealers at the mine $3 55
and adding $310 freight and 35c. for
hauling, the actual cost at the bunkers
at Nelson is $7 per ton. Retailed in less
than carload lots at $8.25 per ton delivered, there is a margin of $1.25. out of
which comes the cost of delivery and the
profit. In the case of the Ashcroft mine
at Lethbridge, the original cost is $3 75
per ton, the other charges being the
same the dealer has $1.05 for profit and
delivery. Coal from Bankhead on the
main line retails at $10.50 in Nelson,
costing $5.50 at the mine, the freight
rate being $3 50 aud handling charges as
usual. The rate from Lethbridge bore
no relation whatever to the competitive
rate from Princeton, for, under the pres
ent tariff, when Princeton coal begins to
come in by the Great Northern it will, be
carried for $2.50 per ton. The coal tariff
is to be made the subject of investigation
by the railway commission.
ENERGETIC BUSINESS MEN.
R. Cross and J. H. Tillsley have recently been added to the personnel composing the officials of the United Empire
Co. Both gentlemen are prominent business men of Spokane and are financially
interested in enterprises which will beneficially affect Princeton and the whole
district. It is the intention of the U.E.
Co. to develop its copper property on
Onemile, next its coal mine, and Mr.
Cross will superintend the work. It
now looks as if Onemile would shortly
become a bnsy spot with the operations
of the U.E. and subsidiary companies.
There is room enough for all.
O H. Carle, the grocer, received an
mmense supply of fruit and vegetables
the other day from Keremeos. No order

FOR CHARITY'S SAKE.
. The Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary was
organized last Thursday under very favorable auguries as to its future usefulness and success, those present entering
into the work with an enthnsiasm that
cannot fail to inspire others with a desire
to help in the charitable and noble cause.
As the name implies, the organization is
for the purpose of helping to furnish and
provide the many necessary articles required for the proper equipment dMbe
hospital. The officers elected are : President, Mrs. McDougall; Vice-President,
Mrs. Waddell; Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs.
Marlow ; the other ladies present being
Mesdames Howse, Nelson, Hall, Huston,
and Miss Schisler. It is expected that a
large membership will accrue to the
Auxiliary as all ladies are invited to take
part in this philanthropic work.
MINING NEWS WANTED.
E, Jacobs, the well known mining editor and reviewer asks Star to state that
he will be pleased to receive any information relative to the progress and development of mines and of the prospect
for mining operations. The information
given will have wide pnblicity. He asks
that mining men give him all the information possible so that due prominence may be given to this important
district. Communications should be addressed to E.Jacobs, Nelson, B.C. and
ought to reach him not later than the ist
of December. This is a good opportunity to advertise this country and possibly be the means of introducing much
needed capital.

UNIVERSAL FREE TRADE.
Free trade is natural trade. Protected trade is unnatural, fictitious,
forced. Free trade puts everyone
on equal footing ; protection favors
some to the disadvantage of others,
it is class legislation. No man, nor
law, should say : Thou shalt not,
under penalty of a tariff, trade with
the Americans, the French, Germans or British. A man's privilege to buy where he pleases is his
birthright and any interference
with it by the state destroys his
liberty and makes of him a vassal.
What man would suffer dictation
as to where he shall buy his goods
in a given town ? Protection is
destructive of healthy competition.
It fosters combines, trusts and gigantic mergers which swallow all
within reach of its monopolistic
tentacles. At the rate which Sir
Wilfrid Laurier has travelled toward his promised goal of free
trade during the last fourteen years
ot his premiership, no man now
living can hope to see free trade
consummated. It remains for the
Conservatives to adopt the new and
winning battle cry : Universal Free
Trade, and wrest Canada from the
grip of unfaithful servants. In tbe
ordinary course of progress and
enlightenment Universal Free
Trade must come. In the world's
politics no other question has the
stupendous benefits to bestow upon
the human race. It is the one
way in which to settle the mania
for huge, impoverishing armaments
and to bring about that universal
peace which all right hearted persons look forward to, hope and
pray for. Star commends free trade
to Conservative leaders, for its importance completely overshadqws
the politician's toy—reciprocity.and
will effectually dispose of naval,
conscription and all present military
or warlike problems.
comparison with Princeton in the
matter of cleanliness. The system
of sanitation, which includes scavenging, is carried out on prescribed
statutory lines and with the recent
addition of waterworks the town
has the necessary equipment for
maintaining the cleanliness and
health of the community. The result of building operations at the
close of the year will be found much
in advance of any previous year,
this, in itself being conclusive proof
that the town is coming into its
own by right of its industrial and
commercial advantages.
The census of all Canada to be
taken next June will give British
Columbia a population of at least
300,000 or more. The basis of representation being 25,000 that number will in proportion to population
give this province a representation
of 12 members in the House of
Commons. Yale-Cariboo will, in
all probability, be divided into two
natural ridings, Yale and Cariboo.
With the increased membership
it ought to be made clear at Ottawa
that our equal and fair rights as a
province should no longer be denied.
Per capita, B, C. contributes more
than the other provinces to the
Dominion's revenue and this is one
of the matters requiring adjustment
along with a fairer proportion of
expenditure on public buildings
and works.
In Britain under free trade tte
development of its commerce has
been by leaps and bounds. That
ought to be answer enough to those
little Canadians who see nothing
but dire results from the operation
of free trade in this country. The
protective tariff rut is hard for the
'slow coaches' to get out of.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is not necessary to resort to
tabulated statistics to show that
Princeton is moving onward in the
march of progress which is so strikingly evident throughout the country as a whole. Other towns less
ripe in years are probably more advanced through the influence of
booming tactics. A casual survey
of the town is only necessary to
prove that the spirit of progress
is not dormant in citizens. Without boasting, it is believed |that no
other town  of its size wiil stand
Ralph Smith, M P., in an interview at Merritt, promised that the
town would have the federal buildings which had been urgently asked
for. Mr. Smith is the Liberal organizer and he knows a thing or
two. Come this way, Mr. Smith,
Princeton wants federal buildings
too. 	
The postoffice service in Canada
is honeycombed with inefficiency,
says the Greenwood Ledge. Yes,
it is fast losing all the honey, soon
there will be nothing left but the
comb, some bee bread and the slow
old drones buzzing around.

LONG ROAD FOR TOURISTS.
' A recent telegram from Winnipeg says:
A beginning has been made in the movement to establish Manitoba's section of
the proposed western highway, but beyond informal discussions of the project
little action has been taken. The idea
is to construct a first class highway from
the great.lakes to the Pacific coast and it
is understood here that the scheme is
already under way in Alberta and British Columbia. Automobile enthusiasts
are, of course, deeply interested aud it is
proposed to call a conference of various
public bodies to push the scheme along.
