MINES AND MINING.
Jesse Miller, of Wenatchee, Wash., is
in town on mining business.
Cox & Uhler have returned from a
visit to Oroville, Loomis and other
voints. They state that Princeton
looks good to them after sizing up
ether places. Work on the Wenatchee branch of the Great Northern is
Leing pushed vigorously. Their mining properties on Fivemile are looking
fine and assays are satisfactory.
Oscar Lachmund and Fred Keffer,
Loth of the B. C. Copper Co., returned
from Copper mountain last Sunday
and left for Greenwood.
The site for a concentrater at Ash-
no.a is one of the considerations included in the development of Copper
i..ountain and Voi->+ camps.
negligent and criminally careless as
to endanger life and the destruction
of property and valuable forests. The
penalty for willfully setting fire to
forest or woodland during the close
season runs from two years imprisonment to fourteen years in the penitentiary. The public generally will'
have very little sympathy for anyone
caught starting a fire after all these
warnings and precautions. All that
the law prescribes should be given
firebugs who will not follow the plain
and simple forest fire regulations.
Mr. Coulthard's beat extends from
Princeton to Twentymile creek, south
to the international boundary, west
to the railway belt, north to the head
of Otter lake. The close season extends from May 1st to October 1st
during which time no fire may be
started without obtaining a permit
from the district warden.
CEMENT WORKS SOON START
The British Columbia Pottlcnd Cement
works at East Princeton will be ready to
manufacture cement in the next week or
two. The day cannot, as yet, be definite
ly set. Quite a number of people, prom
inent in business and professional circles,
are  coming  from   outside  points  to   be

for them for chimnys and other building purposes. Just now there is a
dearth of brick of any kind. Brick

Enough cement to construct the proposed ocean-to-ocean highway was recently donated by members of an organization of cement manufacturers
in session in Chicago. Each member
agreed to give one per cent of his annual output for three years. The subscription is estimated to be worth two
million five hundred housand dollars.

BEWARE OF FIRES
J. O. Courtland, forest fire~*_*rffen c
for Princeton district, has had sevefa*"
fires already this season, all^t_p_re-
sult of carelessness. Ncjt-____ch damage was done as jt__y^were early discovered and promptly put out. It is
too bad after all the warnings and
notices published in newspapers and
posted all over the district that some
i ersons   should   be   found   so   utterly
all the creeks booming. The summits
are still clothed in their mantle of
white but must give way to Sol's solvent rays.
Tuesday, June 3, was King's birthday and was quietly observed, the
banks and stores being closed all day.
The postoffice was opened for an hour
or so.
The Princeton brass band is making
excellent progress since reorganization and the adoption of rules and regulations. New talent is coming to
light and practice is all that is required to put the band in public playing condition.. A band stand was promised sometime ago to enable the
band to properly discourse music but
for some reason or other it is not yet
beyond the promising stage. Open
air concerts will be given and on
Dominion Day a busy time is on order.
A meetir~- of the Princeton Racing
and Athletic Association was held last

. Bert Thomas, district road foreman,
went to Penticton last week. He has
several gangs of road builders at work

FARM PRODUCTS NEEDED
The nation, country or_district
whiqh is self existent, or nearly so,
contains the elements for prosperous
and substantial growth. Wherever
there is abundant production of the
necessaries of life contentment and
progress result. In mining, manufacturing or maritime countries the
absence of land products is offset
by industries producing an equivalent in payrolls. No district, town
•or.country can exist without either
a payroll or the produce of the soil.
Illustration of the point suggested
may be found no farther away than
Princeton and district. As yet no
permanent payroll of sufficient importance to cause increase of popu-;
lation and business on a modern
progressive scale has developed—
it must come with the transfusion
of pew blood and capita^—meanwhile the establishment of small
industries must be encouraged and
means devised for producing, as far
as possible, our own food supplies.
Instead of importing butter from
New Zealand and U.S., eggs and
poultry from foreign and outside
domestic points, grain and hay from
neighboring provinces and states,
horses, cattle, beef, mutton and
pork from other countries, enough
should, and could, be produced in
the Similkameen district to supply
home consumers. It is this everlasting outgo of money in the past
that has curtailed progress, stifled
enterprise and sapped the very life
of the community. Until the payroll comes, as come it must, every
resource and opportunity should be
made the most of. Advantage of
the liberal aid offered by the provincial government should be unhesitatingly seized by the farmers
and fruitgrowers of the Similkameen. Cheap money and enough
to serve any sound project is guaranteed. United effort on the part
of farmers would result in the erection of a creamery ; a very . necessary and profitable business in all
districts. Every part of the Similkameen could, no doubt, be induced
to contribute toward the required
milk supply and a free site for a
term of years is offered in a central
part of Princeton. A creamery
with the usual by-products, buttermilk, ice cream and skimmed milk
would keep large sums of money at
home which now are sent away
never to return. There are thousands of acres of land lying idle
all over the district. It ought to
be producing. With the inexpensive stump pulling machine land
can be quickly cleared for cultivation. Mixed farming is a vital necessity for this conntry. The market to be found in the mining camps
and towns for everything the farmer
can raise is the best in the world.
Every inducement is here for the
big or small acreage farmers and it
is their business obligation to see
that the local market, at least, is
well supplied.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
For many palpable reasons there
is need of reform in the constitution and procedure of cur legislative
bodies. From the senate down evidence is not lacking that great waste
of time and money is a fixed condition owing to the latitude of debate
and the tedious and unbusinesslike
conduct of public affairs. The senate is a nommated assembly and is
fashioned after the house of lords of
Britain an hereditary body. Senators are appointed by the Liberal
or Conservative party in power and
qnite naturally only those who have
served their party receive a seat in
the upper chamber. Composed of
defeated party candidates for the
commons and old political 'war-
horses' there is no doubt the senate
is highly responsive to the crack of
the dominating party whip. The
wishes of party, not country, are
bound to weigh heavily in a body of
partizans dealing with purely po-
fitical, and therefore contentious,1
questions. An elected senate would,
at least, be free from the charge of
servility ; it would be under no obligation to premiers or ex-premiers.
In the commons endless speeches
for mere political effect, punctuated
with personal grievances and animosities, are spread on Hansard for
future reference and further debate.
Debates growing out of jibes and
sneers of members have cost the
country several hundred thousand
dollars in the past three or four
years, and the riotous scenes in both
the Canadian and British houses are
disgusting and disgraceful. Star
suggests government by a president
and board of directors, similar to
large companies, elected annually
by the people. Government by a
system of initiative and referendum
whereby the people, and not a few
politicians with grafter followers,
would control public affairs, is a
simple and sensible form. Reform
must come, the people are ready for
it now.

Location and naiurai advantages
and facilities hav. much, to d<- with
the making of a good town, but the
writer is inclined to b.lieve that fflo
energy and spirit of its citizens have
as much to do with it.
Hundreds of towns have passed to
the commercial boneyard just because
the people of the place were. penurious, easily discouraged, or disgruntled pessimistic, and lacking in
enthusiasm, public spirit and confidence in themselves, their neighbors,
and their town. Lots of people are
too willing to sit down,-give up and
say, "oh this town has no resources,
no support, never will amount to anything, anyway, and is sure going to
the bow-wows." And such men help
to send it there. They make this unworthy belief of theirs an excuse, to
themselves at least, for declining to
participate in any public enterprise
or movement for the betterment of
conditions.
Enthusiasm and enterprise were
never wasted; they . are contagious.
Hundreds and thousands of towns
have been made and built up into
trade and industrial centers of importance largely by the enthusiasm,
public spirit and enterprise of their
citizens. Enthusiasm, bubbling over,
and enterprise, unquenchable are
what is wanted, and the more any
community has of these cardinal virtues the better off the community will
be, the greater its prosperity, the
more cerain and rapid its growth, and
the less keenly its periods of depression will be felt.
There seems to be plenty of boosting going on throughout the Pacific
northwest, especially in the larger
cities; some people believe there has
been too much. However this may be,
what is wanted and badly needed loyally—right here in Molson— is hot
the booming or encouraging of 'wild-'
catting," but the boosting that helps
along every- legitimate and practical
enterprise; the steady and consistent
optimism-jthat can be depended upon
the same in times of adversity as in
times of prosperity.    m
It is the people that make a town
or community. Everyone knows o£
instances of towns which seemed to
have excellent natural advantages and
opportunities, but ' which for some
reason or other failed to move forward as they should have done, and
all know of many towns without any
particular natural advantages which
have created advantages and grown
into thriving cities. Fortunate indeed
is the town which has a body of public
spirited, enterprising and optimistic
citizens who wil" pull J-"ether for results as a whole. The Leader believes
Molson has such a bunch of boosters,
even though th'eir number' may be
small, and that the only thing nee-
ess? ry to accomplish results is to get
them to pulling together with genuine
bulldo" stick-to-it-ivness.
Make Molson and vicinity your first
consideration. Merchants, business
ai n farmers, get toer. ther, pull together and work for the advancement
of your home town and community.
Tell the outside country the advantages it offers, for it is conceeded by
all familiar with' local conditions- that
this is one of the richest sections in
the entire 'northwest. Start enterprises that will employ people; develop the rich and varied resources of
"the hill country." Farmers, patronize your home merchants—they will
always do as well by you as any; outsider can, and the chances are they
will do better. And merchants, patronize your local newspaper. Many
business men do not seem- to realize
what their local paper is doing for
them and the town, and how much
more they could and would do if given
a loyal  and united  support.—Leader.

TRADE RELATIONS BETWEEN
UNITED STATES AND
CANADA.
It must .be apparent to all observant and thoughtful people that in the
political, social or commercial relationship between the United States
and the Dominion of Canada the keeping of a profit and loss account will
be throughout the future as impossible
as it would be to keep a similar account between the several states on
one side of the border or between tfi.e
several provinces on the other side,
i'he fiction of conflicting international interests will, of course, be maintained in some quarters so long as an
imaginary line separates the two
countries. But this fiction is bound
to fade out in the light of such facts
as those brought out the other day in
the Canadian Parliament by the minister of finance, William Thomas
White, in the course of his speech on
the budget.
One of these facts was to the effect
that 140,143 immigrants entered Canada from the United States last year
and that they brought into the Dominion $140,000,000. Here might be
found an opportunity to enter a great
profit for -t Canada. But the minister did not stop with this. He
showed how the importations from the
United States into. Canada -during the
same period had increased by more
than $105,000,000, while the' exports
into the United States from Canada
had increased by more than $47,000,-
000. He referred to trade figures to
show that during the past six years
importations from the United States
into Canada had more than doubled
As against this, he was only able to
show, to be sure, that in the same
time Canadian exports to the United
Sates had increased by only 50 per
cent, but .with great clear-sightedness
he quickly painted out that he immigration into Canada from the United
States* with the incidental transfer
of $140,000,000 of American working
capital, to say nothing of American
industry and skill, more than -compensated for the failure of Canada to
make as good a*showing as the United
States in the commercial transactions
between the two nations.
It is not necessary to become sentimental in dealing with the growing
intimacy of trade relationship between the United States and the Dominion in order to bring forward the
point that what benefits or hurts the
one hereafter, must benefit or hurt
the other.' No political or economic
or geographical lines can be drawn
or maintained that will prevent the
ebb and flow of commercial sympathy
across them. Specifically, Canada
may gain where the United Stafes
loses, and vice versa, generally, trade
relationship is bound to be as close
between the two countries as it is between Quebec and Manitoba, or between Massachusetts and Illinois.
Each country will reflect the other's
prosperity,. as each must share1 in the
other's adversity.—Christian Science
Monitor.
Don't run down your own town. Be
loyal to its institutions as you are to
your personal interests. Don't condemn its enterprises and at the same
time withhold your suppert and patronage, which would aid in making
the enterprises a creditable success.
Arid this sentiment will also apply to
the treatment of your' home paper as
well as to other business.—Summer-
land Review.'
Whether to put cattle, wheat and
oats on the free list or to put a duty
on these products, is one of the absorbing problems of the senate finance
committee just now in revising the
Underwood tariff bill for senate consideration.
Every once in a while someone intimates that we' ought to "rip someone
up the back." Say they deserve it,
and they don't see why we don't do it
Friends, we are not in the roasting
business. Apply at a crematory. If
you have it in for someone, go to him
and fight it out like a man. Don't try
to mix the printer up in your grievances. He has troubles of his own.
None of we poor mortals here below
are perfect, not by a long shot, and
other people may think that you yourself deserve special attention.—Summerland Review.

Among the contributions to the discussion as to the relative success in
life of girls in factories or offices and
those in home, one by a writer in the
Delineator gives figures from different sources to show that with the increase of industrial work by women
outside the homes there has been a
steady decrease of women's names on
the court records. The inference of
this writer is that the change to industrialism for women, their going
out into the world to earn their living
as men do has meant a distinct advance.

Mr. Mayers informs ns tbat he regrets
his not being able to remain any longer
than the end of the month, as it appears
impossible to maintain a household in
Princeton on the slender stipend now
being paid. He had thought of bringing
the family to settle but has been obliged
to alter his plans.
Christian Science lesson-sermon subject next Sunday: 'God the only cause
and creator.' Happy is he that hath the
God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is
in the Lord his God: Which made
heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that
therein is: which keepeth truth for ever.
—Psalms 146 : 5, 6.
