IT IS DOMINION DAY
Princeton   Celebrates and Invites Neighbors to See
the Sport.
Program Embraces all Usual Features
with Good Prize Money for
Various Events.
At the public meeting Tuesday night
it was unanimously decided to celebrate
Dominion Day, following the custom of
Princetonians since the town had an existence. C. E Thomas was elected chairman and explained the object of the
meeting.
The appointment of a Soliciting Committee resulted in liberal subscriptions
from those present. It-was figured out
that no difficulty would be experienced
in obtaining $500 for the celebration.
Printing and General Committees were
appointed, reserve being made for special
committees to be named later who will
work out the details.
The leading features of the celebration
are horse racing, baseball and grand ball.
About $350 will be devoted to horse racing. In the 600 yards freeforall jjSloois
first money and $35 second, other races
proportionate.
Baseball prize, $100, open to allcomers.
This event will probably draw out the
best talent to be found in many miles
around.
Caledonian games and children's sports
will afford everyone a chance to compete.
Everybody in.vited and a good time
promised. Come and see some of the
scenic beauty and natural resources of
Coalopolis.
For further information see poster-
programmes and watch the Star for special aunouncements.
This Dominion Day will witness the
last of the old order of celebrations, the
railway affording cheap transit, cayuse
transportation will be abandoned next
year.

Correspondent Denies Statements in
Okanagan Falls Notes.
Editor Star—Sir: I notice in your
issue of .May 19th that you seem to have
a correspondent at' Okanagan Falls, that
handles the truth rather carelessly. I
have no American citizens working here
with me, but I have a so called 'Bluenose'
who is a British subject and an intending
settler. I was not aware that such weie
prohibited from work here in B.C.
I will further state that all settlers in
the neighborhood that have inquired foil
work have been able to obtain same.
Therefore, I trust that in future your cor-S
respondent will allow his name to be
printed with his notes or give up the job
to someone that will take the trouble to
find out the real facts of the case.
Neh, McLban.
Okanagan Falls, May 28, 1909.
[The writer of the above letter has requested the Star to give him the name of
our correspondent. It is a rule in well
conducted newspaper offices not to publish the names of news correspondents,
the reasons for which are various and
pb vious. The Star and the London Times
have invariably adhered to this rule, the
latter disclosing names only when obliged
to in the high courts of the land. In the
case of the Star it has always managed to
keep out of court either from action of
libel or debt, and if some subscribers
would only pay up arrearges this nightmare of debt would never amount to anything more than a bad dream, if that.—

FREEMASONS EN FETE
Lodge Instituted and Brethren
^Foregather Around the
Banquet Table.
Prince of Wales, Supreme Grand Master—Masonry Hundreds of
Years Old.
Princeton has another fraternal society
the Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons
having instituted Similkameen Lodge
last Friday night, June 4th, in the Masonic Hall, Britton block, working under
jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of B.C.
Some months ago steps were taken by
local Freemasons to establish a lodge in
Princeton, a dispensation having been
granted b> the Grand Lodge. The D.D.
G.M., A. Megraw, Hedley, of No 9 Masonic District, embracing the lodges of
the Similkameen and Okanagan as far
north as Enderby, performed the rites
and ceremonies of institution.
The history of Freemasonry dates from
:mediaeval times, beyond which there is
little authentic matter on which to base
reliability for statements alleging its
origin to have been at the time of building Solomons Temple,-"the Tower of
.Babel or the Hanging Gardens of Babv-
lon. Unquestionably it is the oldest fraternal society in existence, numbering
among its members distinguished men
of all ranks from rulers to the humble
artisan, only one female freemason having been enrolled. It is founded in the
practice of 'moral and social virtue;' its
distinguishing characteristic is charity in
iu its most extended sense, and brotherly
love, relief and truth are inculcated by
its precepts. The oldest lodges in existence are York, England, A.D. 926, and
Kilwinning Lodge, Scotland, A.D. 1150;
-in America the first Grand Lode was instituted about 1730, althongh prior to
this Masons met in lodges without charters. The order is prohibited in some
countries where the Greek and Latin
religions prevail but it may be practically
considered a world-wide organization, its
membership in Canada and the United
States alone numbering in 1903, 962,438.
Knights Templar, Scottish Rite and the
Mystic Shrine are Masonic, the latter
developing the social side of the Craft
in entertainment.
Similkameen Lodge begins under favorable auspic.es both of present and prospective membership. Its first officers
areas follows: W.M., F. Pyman; S.W.,
Dr. Lazier ; J.W., C. A. Saunders ; Treas.,
Geo. Nathan; Sec, Perley Russell; S.D.,
Thos. Day; J.D., W. J. Kirkpatrick;

RUMBLE OF TRAILS
 -gwW
Steel, Bridging, ^Ties, Track
Machine and Men
at Keremeos.
Four Bridges Across Similkameen, One
at 20-Mile—Rails Here on
October 15th.
Patience is one of the cardinal virtues
and perfection in it can only be attained
by constant practice. Every time the
Star receives one of those exasperating
wireless and liarless statements about
tracklaying it digests it as mere food for
patience. Those of us who have patiently
waited for remittances that never came,
are now prepared to wait for the snort of
the iron horse until we turn into Egyptian or Canadian mummies.
The latest authoritative report re track-
laying is that it will begin on the 1st of
July and the first crossing of the Similkameen River will be made on the 10th ;
second crossing on the 15th, third crossing on 1st August, reaching Princeton on
the 15th October. Ballasting will be
completed on 1st November, the road
immediately thereafter being turned over
to the operating department of the Great
Northern and Princeton put in touch
with the rest of the great, throbbing,
pulsating world. j
It is beyond doubt that the tracklaying
outfit is at Keremeos  and  that the gangs -
of bridge and  trackmen are all ready to
begin   work.     The   Chronicle   of   that
place is a good guesser and usually relia- j

THE GAME ACT.

Constable Hewat. in answer to many
inquirers regarding the alleged right of
prospectors or free miners to kill game
out of season, has handed the Star the
following letter from the Provincial Game
Waiden:
" R. Hewat, Esq., Provincial Constable, Princeton, B.C. Sir: With regard
to your enquiry re free miners being allowed to kill game at any time of the
year in an organized district I geg to
inform you that the Game Act distinctly
limits their privileges to unorganized dis -
tricts.
"Should you happen to hear of any
infringements of the Game Act by any
free miner in an organized district I beg
to instruct you to prosecute immediately
and to continue to do so unless you hear
from me to the contrary. I am. Sir,' your
obedient servant, A. Bryan Williams,
J.P., Provincial Game and Forest Warden."

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Dominion  Day is rapidly drawing nigh   and  as  this is the day
Princeton celebrates every citizen
should do something  to  make the
occasion  successful and worthy of
the town.   There has been a noticej-,
able tendency in past years to leave
the  burden   of the work  to a few
public spirited citizens who,  as a
rule, are the busiest people around.
These  celebrations  are an annual
necessity,  the  direct and indirect
benefits  of which  cannot   be  estimated  in  mere dollars and cents,
things not  to  be  despised, yet, by
no means of supreme consideration.
Let every citizen get into the collar
and work with a will; success will
then crown their efforts.  •
ignores conversion should be burnt,
and preaching without conversion
in it is a useless thing.    Smith was
$a.oo I 'n deadly earnest and preached the
whole gospel,   no matter who got
hurt.    A few Smiths and the occupation of pulpiteers would be gone,
their places being filled by an evangelistic, converted ministry and such
a thing as a decadent pulpit would
not be talked of.    Gipsy Smith had
faith and  worked hard—result, an
abundance of  fruit.     He  did not
deal in platitudes or negations when
exposing the sins and vices of today.    More Smiths wanted for the
whitening harvest.

The Star's  advocacy of the University  and   Mining School being
located  in    Princeton   has  evoked
considerable knocking from some of
the  'know-it-alls.'    It would be a
pleasure and a curio of literature to
have these wise men put their views
in print.    Very little hope was entertained  by  the  Star  that  those
institutions  would be located here,
but the least it could do was to present the  advantages and claims of
Princeton as   had   been  done   by
other newspapers for their respective towns.    The  Star may. have to
plow a lonely furrow  in upholding
the claims of the town on  government attention, but it  has  nothing
to fear from those  who  are known
never to fail in knocking  anything
that  does  not  emanate from  their
craniums.
Gipsy Smith, the evangelist, has
been preaching  to  immense  audiences in Toronto, filling  and  running over the largest auditorium in
the city with an eager, gospel hungry crowd.    It must  be a stickler
for the D.D.'s   and other college
trained  divines  to see  the unlettered gipsy drawing throngs  of all
sorts of men   every twice a day.
Then, the fruit.   Thousands of conversions, reforming and transforming men  burdened  with a load of
sin and putting it new song in their
mouths.    What is the secret of the
Gipsy's swaying power?   Is it personal magnetism,   tricks of speech,
eloquence,     learned     discourses ?
None of these.    His influence was
first of all due to the Spirit breathing,    expounding j  and    praying
through him : it works only in converted persons.    Any theology that •
In this age of free education   and
special schools for preparing people
for all sorts of occupations, it is certainly queer that the most  important business of all is so  thoroughly
neglected.    There   are  schools  for
barbers, bricklayers, brewers,bakers
and ballet-dancers — and it is quite
right that only  competent  persons
should   deal   with   beards,   bricks,
beer,   buns  and  ballets;   but   how
about babies?    Girls who grow  up
at home learn more  or  less  about
housekeeping, and, if there  happen
to be younger children,  something
about babies.    But the girls do not
grow up at home now;   they  work
in stores, factories, schools  and offices, never giving a serious thought
to  the  husbands  and   babies  that
they will have to take care of Foon
The first result of this is  tbe  large
crop of squalling babies and swearing   husbands   everywhere   to   be
found.    Unless the wife works hard
and learnsquickly, hubby frequently   takes   to  drink,   and   baby   to
dying.      A   New   Yorker   named
Schroder    is    trying    to    improve
things on a small scale   by starting
a school for young married women,
where they can learn their business.
This seems to' be the most  expensive and inconvenient way of  doing
it.    The proper time to teach  girls
their bnsiness is when they  are  at
school.    It would   be  funny,   if it
were not so tragic, to think that we
prepare girls to feed husbands  and
dress babies by teaching them  history and grammar.    There are domestic science courses in many cities,
forming part  of the school  work,
but  they  only  teach   a  few of the
things that  girls ought  to  know.
Still, they   are   doing good work,
and they are .increasing rapidly; the
time will come when marriage certificates,   like  teachers'   certificates,
will only be given to those who ceu
pass an examination on the business
they are going to engage in — tbe
most   important   business   in    the
world.—Com.

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
A. Megraw, of the Hedley Gazette, was
in town last week, on Masonic business.
He paid a friendly call to his brother
slave and was quite reminiscent. The
'Major' is looking more comfortable and
prosperous than for years, probably reflecting the facts that delinquents are
doing the right thing and hard times a
thing of the buried past in rich Camp
Hedley.
H. V, O. Chatterton, representing
Rithet & Co., was in town last week. He
is the same evergenial.
W. Wilson arrived from the coast last
week.
Tennis season is fully on and some
fine play rra3' be seen on club days.
Increased membership invited, the fees
being : Ladies, $3; gentlemen $5.
Trap shooting cup presented by L. W.
Shatford, M.P.P., is for competition between Hedley, Keremeos and Princeton
on celebration days.    'Git yer gun.'
What about a monster procession of
societies, tradesmen, tillicums and citizens generally on Dominion Day ? A
clown or two and some character performers would make fun for all.
Podunk Davis reports 7 feet of snow
in Hope mountains and lots of it on the

Envy is almost the only vice that is
practical at all times and in.every place,
the only passion that can . never lie qniet
for want of irritation : its effects, therefore, are everywhere discoverable, and its
attempts always to be dreaded.—Dr.

It is easy to run a business or anything
else on jawbone, but there comes" a day
when tbe creditor must be paid and then
friendship ceases. Pay as you go, thus
avoiding strained relations and preserving independence.
You find yourself refreshed by the
presence of cheerful people; why not
make an earnest effort to confer that
pleasure'on others. Refrain from saying
•cutting' or gloomy things and the result
will be pleasure aud happiness.
Give us, O give us the man or woman
