MATRIMONIAL.
A very happy wedding took place
yesterday at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
S. R. Gibson, when Mr. George Unsoeld
and Miss Isabel Blanche Trehearne both
of Princeton, were united in marriage l»y
the Rev. R. J. McLean, B.A. A small
company of immediate friends were pres
eut. Lunch was served, after which the
happy couple departed by train for Spokane and Seattle. Tbe bride looked
handsome in a very becoming traveliug
suit and was the recipient of many gifts.
The staff of the A. E. Howse Co.'s department stores gave the happy pair a
pleasant send off. Among a host of congratulations Star bids Mr. and Mrs. Unsoeld complete happiness throughout the
journey of life.
LOCAL AND GENEBAL.
Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Howse have returned from a trip to Nelson   last   week.
J. Malone arrived from Nelson last
week after visiting his family there. He
reports .prosperity in the Kootenay, due
to active mining and general progress.
Miss Nelene J. Sloane, dramatic soprano and reader, pupil from Royal con
servatory of Milan, Italy, will appear in
concert recital under the patronage of
the Ladies' AuxiliarA, at Mr. Dignan's.
picture house Friday night. Miss Sloane
will sing in English, Scotch, Italian and
Hawaiian, and has promised to intersperse popular songs that will appeal to'
everybody. The usual moving pictures
will be shown.    Admission 75c
I. A. Dinsmore, as license inspector,
has been inspecting hotels in this district during the past week.
The Princeton hotel is gradually as
suming order and comfort. In a house of
such large proportions a small army of
workingmen can not get things into position in a day. Mr. Swanson hopes to be
ready next week for reception of guests.
E. Waterman and R. W. Moeran are
deer stalking among the Finlay glens and
have, at last accounts, captured three
fine animals.
J. W. Whitely, organizer for the Orange
order, arrived Monday, and will address
a public meeting tonight.
POLICE   COURT.
Before C. E Thomas, J. P., the case ol
F P. Cook, proprietor of the Coalmont
Courier, vs. E Clark, printer, was heard
Tuesday evening in the court house. K.
C. Brown appearing ou behalf of plaintiff,
and Hilyer for defendant The defendant is charged, among other things,
with appropriating the properly of Mr.
Cook, who seeks to recover and restrain.
The case was enlarged to Monday, 25th,
as it requires two trial magistrates, Mr.
Waterman, J.P., being absent from town.
As the matter is sub judlce, comment
upon it is deferred until after trial.
MINES AND MINING
Big Placer Dredging Proposition on Similkameen
River Bed.
Great  Mining Congress at Spokane
Begins Next Monday, Lasting
Four Days.
F. H. Osgood and Wm. Willis have put
a placer drill in operation on the Similkameen river near Chopaka with which
they intend to thoroughly prospect the
river from its mouth to eight miles above,
extending into British Columbia. These
gentlemen are practical mining men and
have the 'sinews of war' to carry on extensive mining. The river contains gold
and platinum, as everybody knows, but
the difficulty has been to werkitotra
commercial and economic scale. These
gentlemen propose to solve the difficulty,
and Star wishes them good luck for their
enterprise. Prospecting will continue all
winter, and a dredge will follow in the
spring. Both gentlemen come here
through Mr. Corwin's inducements.
W. Lewis, of Vancouver, will shortly
begin prospecting claims owned bv E.
MahonandT.J. Corwin. These claims
extend about forty miles down the river
and are believed to be among the best
placers found along the Similkameen.
In a building 100x210 feet in the clear,
delegates to the American Mining congress, which meets in Spokane from November 25 to 29, will become part of the
biggest mining camp ever attempted in
the west, or probably in the entire coun
try. Scenery to cost $2000 is now being
prepared under the direction of C. W
York, manager of the Auditorium thea
ter, and on Thanksgiving night 'Taylor
Gulch,' named in honor ofthe president
of the congress, will blossom forth as the
latest mining boom camp. Everything
that used to go with the mining excite
ment of the wild and wooly west will be
there, and delegates can confidently look
forward to an entertainment that is absolutely unique. Special car service has
been provided to transport the crowds,
and every public organization in the city
is now bending its energies towards giving the visitors the record time of their
lives. 'Taylor Gulch' will be open two
nights. On Thanksgiving night ladies
will be admitted, while the affair of Friday night will be strictly 'stag.'
T. J. Corwin, of Seattle, arrived last
week on mining business.
Mr. Weekes, M.E., Voigt Camp, was in
town this week on his way to Spokane.
He was accompanied by Mrs. Weekes.
Miss Eaton, Seattle, has spent several
davs in town.
WHY?
We had no idea of our importance until the Coalmont Courier devoted a whole
front page last week to 'Wright,' the
'Princeton sciibe.' Not even kings, emperors or presidents could command a
whole title page of attention. We are
accused of taking a fall out of a dead
'dog.' The Cur-rier man knows his-
proper description, so often has he been
called 'yellow cur' and 'dog.' It is the
custom among newspapers to note the
birth or death of any of the craft, therefore, there was nothing out of the way in
Star refeiring to the Cur-rier. Of course,
the whole page of abnse directed at us is
but a tissue of lies. Coming from a char
acter like Clark, who, in,the course of a
year^has been twice in the criniina1_roiirt,
and who himself says he may end np in
the 'pen,' this page of falsehoods carry no
weight and we only laugh at them as the
fulminations of an object of pity. An irresponsible man without means may
slander hundreds of respectable people,
taking refuge behind the fact that he
has nothing to pay damages with, and
this seems to be the position of the Currier man. Clark says we were 'scared to
death' to reply to his former criticisms.
Well, we are not in the habit of paying
any attention to idiotic frothings, and we
are sure he will pardon us for not giving
him some free advertising and notoriety
on that score, but to refresh his memory
and show that he has an innate irrepressible desire to lie, we will refer him to
some plain spoken and trenchant editorials in Star of July, August and more recently. He talks of putting 'us out of
business.' Seriously, we think he could
not put a licked valler rooster out of business, much less any human being. The
first issue of the Cur-rier was clean and
decent, and this paper made a favorable
comment thereon, but since then it has
been continually vomiting filth and lies,
so much so that the Cur-rier was 'refused'
by manylto whom it was sent, aqd. neUhar
the Hedlev Gazette norStar would ex-
change. Clark says Star was 'boosting
for Laurier' before the elections last fall
and after the result was known changed
to the winning side. While this paper
was owned bv its former proprietor it I
was Liberal; when it was sold and the
transfer papers signed, near the end of'
September, 1911. its political policy was
changed in aacordance with the controlling interests therein. It will remain
Conservative so long as its owners wish.
The writer will not play traitor to the
interests of owners, as the Cur rier man
does with his principal. Regarding
Clark's statement that he has been Conservative all his life, we think the party
in the old country or Canada will not
thank him for thus gratuitously slandering them. He has never changed his
political opinions' Well! Well! An old
philosopher  has said 'that a wise man

THE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
LOCAL AND GENEBAL.
The mild weather has kept  the streets
and  roads  in a muddy condition      Chi
nook winds are drying them today.
For Xmas and New Year gifts just see
the stock of the Princeton drug and book
store.    No end of variety to select  from.
Chief Constahle Dinsuiorehas instructed
Constable Rogers to enf./rce the terms of
the Wide Tires Act. Much of the present miry condition of the streets is at
tributed to the use of narrow tires and it
is to remedy this condition that the act
will be enforced.
Mrs. Unsoeld, nee Miss Trehearne, was
the recipient of a verv pretty shower party at the basket ball club rooms on
Monday la _. The young ladies very
thoughtfully showered some pretty mementoes of club associations in  anticipa
tion of a happy event.    "Who'll be next?'
is a question frequently asked.
Tbe Oddfellows' ball on Friday, Nov.
29, will be largely attended. This annual
function gives genuine pleasure and is
sure to be well patronized.
Basket ball practices are regularly at
tended and some good matches are soon
expected.  |
The Ladies' Hospital Aid has an
nounced their annual masquerade ball, to
be held on New Year's eve. Bear this
charitable event in mind and provide a
ticket for yourself and wife, or it maybe sweetheart.
A letter from the Walker Press, Eudei-

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Kettle Valley Railway Company's application  for  a charter to
cover   a   bran, h   from   a   point on
■"Summers < reek  to Voigt camp and
'Copper ir ountain will cause consider, it>le   sp t ulation   as to the route.
The interests of Princeton demand
.ha. this branch line shall serve the
town.      While   the   main  line is to
touch Princeton, according  to present expectations  and the three surveys already made, the   branch line
will be important   in affording con
venient means   for  usual traffic, including   ore   tonnage.      The   Hon.
member for Yale Cariboo, Mr. Burrell,   will,   no   doubt,   see   that the
interests of Princeton aro protected
whenjthe charter   application  is before the   railway  rommitttee.     As
it   now   looks   there   will   be  two
branch lines, V..V   & E. and K.V
serving Voigt camp, with the probability   that   four   lines of   railway
will   focus   at   Princeton.    The topography   of.the  country suggests
this town as a railroad center.
What horrible scenes of carnage
and destruction are depicted in the
daily press as the result of the Eu
ropean war. And now China is
rolling up her sleeves to maul the
Russian bear. Universal peace,
and the millenium dawn our good
local pastor never wearies talking
about, seem farther away than ever.
Peace thinking is the only remedy.
Try it.
WHY?
From 5th Page.
will   change   his   opinions; but  a   fool,
never.'   'Wright' has never sunk his individualism so low nor   lost a sense of
honor and self respect which would sacrifice his personal liberty of thought  and
action in voting as to become hide bound
heeler  of  any  political   paity—his con
science  shall   be  his  guide, and when a
political party adopts what he thinks are
wrong measures he   will oppose them.
What would become of a nation  if there
■were not enough voters  of independent
thought to stand for honor and just government?   The elections last fall showed
rnanv thousands of Liberals voting  Conservative, and just recently, in the United
States,  manv  republicans voted for the
democratic   candidate.     These   are   th§
voters who save any nation from decay.
Clark has not sufficient stamina to think
for himself, if he had the brains, so he
blindly    ollows.   He says he has testi
monials   to prove his services   to party
and that he has refused editorial positions
because the  paper's politics did not suit
him.   What pure guff from a scribbler
who could not command a position on
anything outside the Coalmont Cur rier,
and who is at best a tramp of a very ordinary class.   Testimonials cut little figure, it is the man with  'the goods' who
counts.   Men are judged  by what they
are, not by  what some old, spurious or
begged testimonial may say about them.
Clark takes a fling at Christian Science
because the   writer is a   student   of it.
Every well informed editor in the country
has studied it somewhat and commented
on it in tbe columns of his paper.   It has
made wonderful strides  throughout the
world and numbers among  its believers
those in every walk of life.   In  spite of
all adverse criticism, it is proving by its
results that it is right in its interpretation
of the scriptures.   Its principle is to regenerate and heal, proven by many thousands of witnesses; to  love  all, even our
enemies.    The writer is a poor, weak adherent of this new found truth; but he believes in it and is not afraid  to fly his
colors, although he does not   always   do
them   the   credit   he should.    He  will,
however,   press on   till  victory   is   won
over flesh  and   matter.    We could wish
Clark   no   fu ther   harm   than   that   he
should studv the Christian   Science test
book, and we are sure that he would be
a   better man   physically, mentally and
morally, and in a position to intelligently discuss a religion that he now seeks to
^*nder.    No  man in this  country of religious toleration  and  freedom  has any
right to sneer  at a  religion,  creed or no
creed.    All   think  and act on  matters of
religion   without   interference  and  it is
only  a   very    ignorant,   stupid  and   ill
bred man who will sneer at   people with
differing   views to  those  he  may hold
Instead of quoting  Latin phrases "found
in the 'T. Eeaton   boiler  plate' he piints
Clark should read up a bit befre sneering
The    Star   has    never    knocked    Coal-

continue to expose fakir Clark in the interests of the public.    We deny the utter
ly false statements that this   paper ever
published unauthorized ads., as the Cur
rier did, and then have the  insufferable
gall to bill  for them; we  never refused
any decent communication   for  publication, and no man has ever worked for us
without getting his full pay.    The  Coalmont gunner, bum printer-yeggman was
first   introduced   to  the  writer about  a
year ago, whom he promptly 'struck'  for
small change at different  times  amounting to $3; he then asked for a loan of $27
to redeem  a  suit of clothes in 'soak' in
Spokane—must  have   been a swell suit
for a hobo—and then he asked   for sufficient   to cover  freight   charges  on   the
Cur-rier  printing   plant.    Of course, he
may find easy marks all around,  but not
with   'McGillicudy,'   who   refused   the
soak and freight loans.   This" is 'why'
Clark tried to gnf Star 'out of business'
by running unauthorized ads., and circulating his sheet filled with scurrility and
T. Eaton dope imported by  fast  freight,
dispensed as 'news'  circulating  in every
home.    In apologizing to leaders for ex
ceeding our first intention  to reply with
two or three terse, yet forcible, sentencis
it mav be stated that trappers sometimes
have to 'smoke out'" a   malodorous little
animal to protect themselves.   The sar^e
process is used in journalism to protect
decent members and while the 'smoke' is
distasteful    it   is   wholesome in  effect.
We  hope  not  to heed  any reply to this
as any  weekly  newspaper cannot  well
afford to give up space for that which is
not news and   whether   the Coalmont
Courier is published one, none or a thousand times will not 'scare' anyone.

CASH GIFTS ABANDONED.
'We do not propose a cash gift. We
propose to build Canadian battleships
and lend them to the British government. We propose to take this course
because it promises the most and swiftest
efficiency. If our battleships could help
the empire most by lying in Halifax ha<-
I or, we would want them to lie there.
We want to do the most we can at the
earliest possible moment in a supremely
effective nianuer. That is our policy.'—
Montreal Star.
'Well, now, if this is our contempo
rary's policj, we are not so very far
apart. We have been contending that a
cash contribut on would not help Great
Britain in an emergency, while it would
delay the building of ships for a Canadian fleet. We have been contending
that the best thing to do,- whether for an
emergency or a permanent policy, was to
build ships, or order them to be built, at
once, under the terms of the Canadian
naval service law.
'That law makes full provision for an
emergency, and for lending our ships toi
the British government when necessary
That law also asserts the principle of
Canadian control, of control by the government and parliament of Canada.
There can be no objection to that except
from those who distrust the government
and parliament of Canada, distrust their
honesty and their patriotism, or hate
Canadian self government.
'There fs nothing in the naval service
law limiting the size of our fleet, or prescribing the kind of ships to be built.
Mr Borden may order any kind of ships
he pleases under that law.
'All he has to do is to enlarge the
present fleet, and use the law that is now
on the statute book. What is the objection to that course?'—London Advertiser

INCCTON
In the center of a coal and ore producing dis=
trict, situated at the junction of the Tulameen and
Similkameen rivers.
Agricultural and grazing lands, suitable for
sheep, cattle and horse raising, poultry farming, etc.
Climate is dry and healthful, an agreeable
change for those living at the coast, or in humid atmospheres.
Scenery, fishing, hunting and shooting unexcelled for the painter and sportsman.
The future of PRINCETON is assured. The rise
in real estate and farm land values will be repeated
here as in other centers.
Railroad connection with* the coast and the
Okanogan will give impetus to development and
production.
