 Once used always used : Princeton coal.
[lAMEBN
After clouds, sunshine; after storm, calm; after hope, fruition.
Copper has regained its normal position among metals arid is certain of continuous demand—Princeton is the center of a great copper
bearing district and the mining industry will focus here—Coal,  iron, copper, lead, zinc, silver, gold and platinum among the products.

VOI-T CAMP LEADS
Biggest  Mine Held by the B.
C. Copper Co. Now
Being Developed.
Authority on Copper Writes Regarding Voigt Camp—Smelter
is Likely.
_4i_i__$,i
B. C   COPPER CO.
In the Boston Commercial George
Walktr says :
British Columbia Copper earned about
$71,000 in March. Profits were given out
a> $56,000 at the end of the month; but
the appreciation of its copper in transit
from British Columbia to the refinery,
au advance of over a cent a pound in the
price of the metal, made it necessary to
revise the figures as stated. Unless
British Columbia C pper directors decide
to purchase Voigt camp at Princeton and pays for it out of earnings, the
company will soon be in a position to re-
s ime dividends.
T.ie Voigt promises to make a bigger
and more profit a,, le mine than any one
that the company now owns Sometime
ago I stated that ore had been encoun
tered in this rroperty which carried 8
per cent copper and $n gold per ton
Further work leads the management to
bejieve that a very large body of ore is
being develc ped which will average
about 3 per cent copper and $3 to $8 a
ton in gold.
It has been reported recently that in
the event of a big mine being developed
there a smelter will be erected at the
Voigt property This may be under consideration, but I don't believe such a plan
will be adopted. The Voigt ore carries
an excess of iron and lime aud is just
w'aat British Columbia needs to flux the
ores now being treated in its Boundary
smelter. Bv mixing these ores with its
pesent charge smelting costs per ton
would be reduced and the recovery of
copper increased, a double benefit.
The Voigt property is close to the railroad and about 100 miles from the
smelter. It would seem that a freight
rate of 75 cents a ton or less could be
arranged. Ifso it would be very much
more economical to ship the ore to the
company's present smelter than to build
a new one.
The o.e zone in the Voigt property is
287 feet wide. There is a considerable
tonnage of silicates and carbonates of
good grade on the surface, and the workings at a depth of 90 to 100 feet are in
primary sulphides. This development
opens up possibilities for the British Col
umbia Copper company which should
cause its stocks to sell higher Current
earnings must be at the rate of nearly
$1.50 a share for its stock annually
LIKES PRINCETON
Visitor   Favorably   Impressed With
Town and Prospects.
Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Townsend of London, England, who have been making
the social tour through China and Japan,
have been paying a short visit to Princeton en route back to England. Mr.
Townsend, who for the past thirty years
has been manager of the Hong Kong and
Shanghai bank at London and New
York, being a shareholder in the Prince
ton Coal & Land Co., has been much in
terested in this his first sight of the property. He informs us that he considers
the place still comparatively isolated and
for that reason undeveloped, but its
natural advantages and attractions in his
opinion mark it out for an important
town as soon as the railway connections
to the Jkanagan valley and to the Pacific
coast are completed. In the meantime
the coal company, without any 'puffing,'
have quietly and in the most thorough
manner developed their property and are
now supplving an excellent coal and with
the uptodate plant they have installed
will be able to meet next season's de
mand, which is expected to exceed 500
tons per day They have also installed a
very efficient water supply for the town.
Asked as to his opinion of the prospects
of the town Mr. Townsend said that he
hid never seen a town which, to his
mind, had brighter or more assured pros
pects ahead of it. It at present seemed
to be behind the demand in every direction.
Not only as a business center was the
town bound to grow, being surrounded
by a good agricultural district and important industrial enterprises, but he
thought it would also become a most
attractive resort for people seeking sport,
pleasure or rest in this fine climat: and
amidst this most beautiful scenery. He
stated that in addition to the railroads in
course of construction the government is
making a motor road from Vancouver
through Princeton and had no doubt it
would be a means of making Princetpn
better known and appreciated.
MINES AND MINING:
J. C. Reilly of Railroad creek   was
town Thursday and  expresses optimistic
opinion of that section   but  does not  at
present care to talk to the press  for pub
lication, but later on will  show .some of
the real stuff in quantity.
C. H. Thompson, diamond expert, arrived last week in the Olivine diamond
field, Tulameen district, and will continue
his researches there this summer.
M. J. Turnbull, mining expert, went
up .to Whipsaw camp on Friday last and
was shown mineral claims by Sam Spencer. It is understood Mr. Turnbull was
much impressed with all that he saw.
-He left for Trail and will return soon.'
RIVAL ROADS BUILD
Rightofway on V.,V. & E. is
Being Bought and
Contract Let.
Great   Northern   President Outlines
Policv of Expansion in B C.
and Northwest.
I
. There is little to add to the railwav
news published last week, the consensus
of opinion in railway circles being stroug
in the belief that unusual activity will
soon be observed in construction by both
the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific
companies. President Hill did not
divulge any of his plans while here. He
stated that his company would complete
the V. V. & E. as soon as possible.
D. J. Hall, rightofway agent for the
V. V. & E-, is reported to have bought
Jack Thynne's ranch for a divisional
terminus in €>tter v_lley.
Foley, Welch & Stewart are said to
have .he contract for construction of 41
miles from Coalmont.
The Great Northern railroad will immediately beg"in"strengthening its position
in the northwest, by a campaign of ex
pansion and development not witnessed
since the days, when James J. Hill and
Edward H. Harriman engaged in their
spectacular race for supremacy in the
northwestern railroad world. This definite announcement was made Thursday,
in Spokane, by Carl R. Gray, of Spokane
and Portland, tB_P n'Sg^¥___h_cit of the
Great .Northern railroad, who 'succeeds
Loms WrStTilTMay19. This announcement means that millions of dollars in
extending lines into virgin territory in
Washington and Oregon and British
Columbia, will be expended under the
guiding hand of the newly elected executive. During the year new appropriations, calling for development of territory in this state, Oregon and British
Columbia, will be made immediately
after a formal meeting of the newly
elected president with the new board of
directors —Spokane Chronicle.
The first locomotive over the Canadian
Northern is expected at Hope today.
The party consisted of L. W. Hill, who
has resigned the position he long held
president of the Great Northern company,
which took effect last Sunday; C. R.
Gray, who was recently elected president
to fill the vacancy made by the resigna
tion of Mr. Hill; H. A Jackson, assistant
traffic manager, St. Paul; M. J. Costello,
assistant traffic manager, Seattle; E. C.
Leedy, general immigration agent, St.
Paul; F. W. Graham, general immigration
agent, Seattle; C. C. Morrison, L. T. Mc
Donald and E. G. Hardgrave of St. Paul,
holding responsible positions in the
officia. army of the road.

LOCAL AND GENERAL
Road Superintendent H. A. Turner arrived in town last Thursday in his 24-h.p.
McLaughlin-Buick auto, provided by the
government for his use. The auto will
be a great economizer of time and add to
the general efficiency required by the
superintendent. Mr. Turner has road
gangs scattered all over the district improving and building anew. The transprovincial road will shortly be under
construction, perhaps by contract.
Miss Pavey, sister of Mrs. M. S. Wil
son, is visiting here.
G. L. Fraser and J. T. Tohnston of the
Columbia Coal & Coke Co.,' Coalmont,
went down to Spokane last Monday.
Mrs. W. H. Hagerman has shown Star
three potatoes weighing 5^ pounds, a
sample of five tons grown on three
quarters of an acre on her Onemile ranch.
The potatoes are firm and without
blemish, being the product of non-irrigated land, and are the best possible evidence of the adaptability of the soil for
such a remarkable yield. For seed purposes they are hard to surpass.
J. L. Huston has opened ice cream parlors in the Irwin block, Bridge street,
where also may be obtained cigars, pipes
and tobaccos. A real necessity is met by
the supply of fresh ice cream from the
creamery at Curlew, Wash., and the
public are sure to appreciate the con
venience especially during the long, hot
days of summer. Ice cream—we. all love
it aud the children beg for it. In connection with the parlors Mr. Huston will
have a reading room in which informa
tion from blue books, maps, etc., regarding the resources of the country, will be
afforded. These rooms will also befound
convenient for committee meetings and
board gatherings.
Quite a number of drummers were in
town this week, and secured good orders
from our busy merchants.
Mrs. J. Gersing has opened neat barber
parlors on the street just off Vermilion
avenue near the court house. The loca
tion is one sure to prove inviting and
agreeable to many customers with its
arbor of trees and green sward. Mrs
Gersing learned the tonsorial art in
Stockholm aud guarantees satisfaction to
all her patrons, both ladies and
gentlemen She is the first lady
barber to establish in Princeton and will,
no doubt, receive a generous share of
patronage.
G. A. Staples, traveling freight agent
of the C. P. R., with headquarters at

TENNIS CLUB DANCE
The dance given last Friday night by
the ladies of Princeton tennis club was a
huge success and was thoroughly enjoyed
by the 150 or more present. Great credit
is reflected on the ladies' committee
which managed the dance, and the
decorations were both in good taste and
appropriate. The music supplied by
Knight's orchestra was in its usual good
form and the Professor delighted all with
its quality. C. M. Snowden very acceptably conducted the ceremonial part of
the occasion in the early part of the
evening. The tennis club benefits financially by the dance and are thankful for
the generous patronage extended to them.

As Dominion day is Princeton's annual
celebration no observance of the 24th,
other than as a holiday, will be held.
Many citizens will fraternize with neighboring towns and others will commune
with the ever impressive hills and the
wild flowers or perhaps lure the lazy trout
from its liquid lair..
It is expected that a convenient train
service will be given between Coalmont
and Princeton on Victoria day, but the
time schedule is not yet arranged.

24th inst., Coalmont begins its loyal celebration and invites everybody and his
friends to be present.
At Keremeos preparations have been
made for due observance of Victoria day.
The program of events include baseball,
$100;   trapshooting,    horseracing,    etc.,

CAPT. JACK CRAWFORD, THE POET SCOUT
I never like to see a man a-rastlin' with
the dumps,
'Cause in  the game o'  life he doesn't
alwavs catch the trumps;
But I can always cotton to a free and easy
cuss
As takes his dose and thanks the Lord it
isn't any wuss.
There ain't no use o1 kickin' and swearin'
at your luck,
Yer can't correct he trouble, more'n you
can drown a duck.
Remember when beneath the load your
suflferin' head is bowed,
That God'11 sprinkle sunshine in the trail
of every cloud.
If   you   should   see   a   fellowman with
trouble's flag unfurled,
And lookin' like he didn't have a friend
in all the world,
Go   up   and slap him on the back and
holler "How d' you do?"
And grasp his hand so warm he'll know
he has a friend in you.
Then ax him what's a-hurtin'  him,  and [
laugh his cares away, ;
And tell  him  that the darkest night is j
just afore the day.
Don't talk in graveyard palaver, but say
it right out loud,
That God'll sprinkle sunshine in the trail
of every cloud.
This world at best is but a hash  of pleasure and of pain;
Some   days are bright and sunny, and
some all sloshed with rain;
And that's just how it ought to be,  for
when the clouds roll by
We'll   know  just   how to 'predate the
bright and smilin' sky.
So learn to take it as it conies, and don't
■' sweat at the pores
Because the Lord-'s opinion doesn't coin
cide with yours;
But   alwavs   keep   rememberin',   when
cares your path enshroud,
That God has lots of sunshine to spill
behind the cloud.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
Those who are striving to make a town
better socially, more prosperous and of
good repute will be met with opposition
from the do-nothings, be nothings and
are nothings.
Idleness and mischief are twin evils—
keep busy and keep sweet.
Nine times out of ten the knocker is a
product of jealousy and ignorance.
Good nature, like sourness, can be
cultivated—smile and speak the word of
cheer and the world will reciprocate. As
you measure to others so it will be measured to you in return.
The Pharisee of old was long faced,
hypocritical, thanking God that he or
she was not like their neighbors. Their
descendants are not as 3'et extinct, and
the Pharisee bids fair to remain some
years.
Cheer up! There never was a cloud
without a glint of sunshine somewhere
upon it.
A friend in word is not always a friend
in deed.
The pessimistic critic never gets into
the collar and pulls—he simply bucks.
The public spirited man lives in the
memories of fellow citizens while the
knocker is soon forgotten
HOW  TO  WASTE   MONEY,   AND
WHERE TO SAVE IT
Under the above heading there appears
a very interesting article in a recent
number of " T. P.'s Weekly." The btst
way to waste money, it is suggested, is to
keep it in the pocket. Then, whenever
one sees a thing which he fancies he
would like he can buy it at once; other,
wise, he may forget it, or, having had
time to think it over, conclude that he
can get along without it.
With the money in one's pocket we are
always ready to receive the  genius  with
" The talk that will  make  a  man   think
that ne needs
The thing that he doesn't; the  talk   that
breeds
So subtly  the fear  that  he'll   count  for
nought
.n the swim till that  uptodate  frill   he's
bought."
Some useful suggestions are also made
as to how tnoney may be saved, the chief
of which is to be systematic in the expenditure of it, to make a careful estimate under such headings as household
expendituies, food, rent, fuel, clothes,
etc , not forgetting something for the
"rainy day." And for this purpose the
writer would no doubt, had he been
writing for the eyes of Canadians only,
have rec nnn. e lded the Canadian Government Annunities System as giving the
largest possible return with the best possible security. By investing a fraction of
your income in this way, whether you be
man or woman, insure an old age of freedom from want or dependence. Ask your
postmaster for literature on the subject,
or write to the Superintendent of Annunities, Ottawa, who will tell you all
you wish to know about the system, and
how you should proceed to make the
provision suggested.

|The Town ol opportunity
The rails have been  laid  into  the town and Coalmont is now the new
terminus,   the  base  of operations for  the next  forty miles of railway
building.
Before six months have passed there should be a payroll in Coalmont of
between  350  and  400  men : This  means population, which naturally
means good business.
IF YOU ARE WISE YOU will  invest in a little Coalmont real estate
now while tbe choice is still good.
Don't let this opportunity slip  along  with  the  others  which have got
past you.    Write for our circular and  price list ; a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

WITH  INVESTORS
Sell them Princeton Real Estate
Make Money out of Old Earth
'T-'HE probabilities of success in real estate speculation are in pro-
■*■ portion to your faith in the possibilities of a town or country*
Princeton has possibilities==some say her possibilities are illimitable. It
would be a blind, unreasonable faith, for one to invest, say, in the great
Sahara desert or inside the Arctic circle. It is different with Princeton
to most_tow_i_____the position, the possibilities, the resources all are prima
facie, self=evident==a blind man can see them with his mental eye.
Opportunity rarely knocks more than once or twice at your door and
lightning never strikes twice in the same place. This analogy illustrates
how carefully one should exercise sound judgment in the when, how and
where of investment in real estate. There is land for everyone if the
other fellow does not gobble more than his share. Remember, single
tax is coming, and then land values will jump skyward. Princeton is
the center of coal, ore and placer mining. Good grazing and agricultural
land. Beautiful climate, fishing, hunting. Two railroads will afford
transportation. Electric light, waterworks, hospital, etc. Write the
Princeton Coal & Land Co., or better still, come and see for yourself
WRITE   OR    CONSULT    THE
Princeton Coal & Land Go.

Owners of Townsite and the Best Domestic Coal produced
