ROADS TO MINING SECTIONS
ABE WANTED.
It is urged by some persons who know
the country well that a road should be
built on Copper mountain which would
connect the various camps with the present terminus of the 'Copper Mountain
road.' Possibly this road could be ex
tended to Roche river and thence to the
international boundary line, where it
would connect with a projected road from
the Slate Creek country. Any money
invested in roads opening up mining sections is sound business as the government
is soon repaid with revenue acciuing
from the operation of mines. Mr. Shat
ford has always shown a sincere disposition to helo the mining industry, inso
much that his plans cover road construe
tion to everv mining camp within the
district of Similkameen and his program
is ouly limited by the generous allowance
of money made available by the govern-
in nt. Friday Creek is one of the camps
along the proposed route of the inter-
provincial road, has a large tonnage
o" high grade ore in sight and would be
a ready shipper as soon as machinery
could be freighted on a wagon road. The
Red Star at Roche "River is also in an
advauced stage of development and would
soon be a producer with transportation
a id a smelter.'*
HORSE  RAN  AWAY AND
MAN KILLED.
A very sad accident, resulting in the
death of_J:_WJ_Si£wart occurred last Sun-
dav evening while he was returning from
town to the United Empire camp, where
he was employed as miner. It appears
that the two wheeled cart in which he
w is riding partially upset^throwing the
unfortunate man out, his feet catching
firmly in the box. The horse bee
frightened and dragged the helpless form
over rough ground, his head and shoulders striking any obstacles which the
animal in his mad flight did not attempt
to obviate. The accident occurred at
the crossing of One-Mile Cretk and was
observed first by Mrs. Jackson, then by
her husband, both of whom strove valiantly to prevent/the accident. The deceased was well known and liked by his
employers and fellow workmen. He
owned a ranch near Fivemile. and leaves
a wife and four children in the east. The
funeral on Tuesday was largely attended
the obsequies being conducted by L.O.L.
No. 2102, of which deceased was a member, the Rev. Mr. Conn offering prayer
and benediction. He' was a native of
Nova Scotia and had been in these parts
about five years.
GELLATLY-MARSHALL.
A quiet wedding was solemnized on
Friday'last, the contracting parties being
Miss Dora Marshall of Innisfail, Alberta,
and .Mr. James ueilatly or~PTirrceton,
B.C. The groom isThe popular local
manager and salesman for the P. Burns
Co., and the bride was one of the most
estimable young ladies in the prairie province. Rev. J. Thurburn-Conu tied the
nuptial knot at the Presbyterian manse,
the happy couple immediately taking
residence on Billiter Avenue. Star extends best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Gel-

HURRY ALONG THE RAILWAY
TO COAST.
It is a matter of great importance
to the  people  of the Similkameen
and  those   of  the   Kootenay  and
Boundary as weli, to  have  the V.,
V. & E. completed to the coast at
the very earliest possible date.    All
these past  years  of suspense  and
waiting and consequent loss of time
and money  have well nigh driven
the people to despair of early connection with the coast.    When one
realizes  the  tremendous disadvantage  these  districts   are subject to
through lack  of direct transportation to seaboard it is  little wonder
that   some   uneasiness   should  be
manifest in those who have invested
and settled  here in  expectation of
early completion of this line.    The
progress of the  country is retarded
by  every  day's   delay in construction.     To  be  obliged  to   make a
detour of six   or   seven   hundred
miles  to  reach  Vancouver  by the
existing all rail  route is not a very
great improvement ou the old stage
coach and freight  wagon Toute via
Nicola and the C.P.R.    Storekcep
ers say there is very little difference
between freight charges of the railway and those of the wagon freighter,   indeed  some  still   employ  the
latter.    Then, as to passengers and
mails, it takes three days and nights
to reach Vancouver" under the present layover, jerkwater system.    Oh
the completion ol tbe line over Hope
mountains,   instead  of  three days
and nights a little   more than three
hours would be taken to  tidewater
and to Vancouver  about six hours
So, there is very  good   reason why
complaints   are  coming  thick and
fast regarding the  tardiness of railroad   construction.     Coast  peop'e
are  looking   anxiously   forward to
the time when   they  will have railroad connection   with   the Similkameen  and   all  southern  B. C. east
of Hope  mountains.    A   large  reciprocal  trade  will  spring   up between the  two sections  and many
welltodo business  men and others
no doubt, would be glad to have tbe
opportunity   of   acquiring    a   few
acres of ground on  which to build
a country home in one of the healthiest  climates   in  the  world.    The
completion of the  railroad   to the
coast means  great  development of
mineral,   fruit  and agricultural resources besides benefitting commercial interests in  the wholesale and
manufacturing   centers.     There is
no  desire   to  minimize  the  great
work President Hill has so far accomplished in the construction of
He is the first and
believe, to build a
railroad in Canada without a bonus.
Having done that he has earned our
gratitude and goodwill.
