Use Princeton coal and avoid wheezy pipes, gassy odor
Mortal mind, sin, begets disease, death; Divine Mind cures all.
Poets may sing of beautiful flower gardens and pretty parks in the Old World, but of course they know nothing of the grandeur
of sunkissed Similkameen scenery, nor of its marvellous mineral resources—Let the poets and capitalists come and both will protit.

TBE BOARD OF TRADE
Spokane Fair Wants Miner; 1
Exhibits from Princeton .
and District.
Question of Smelter and Site Debated,
Princeton Camp being in Most
Central Situation.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Board ot Trade was he'd Monday night.
Present, Messrs. Avery, Brown, K. C;
Brown, W. C; Conn, Groffman, Lumsden, Marlow, Willarson Wylhe and
Wright. Minutes of previous meeting
read and adopted. ^^4 ^J\^^j[
Communications were read ■'froai the
Superintendent of the Spokane Intei-
state Fair, L. K. Armstrong, inviting the
BoaroStf> send mineral exhibits. It is the
intention of the management of the Fair
to make the mineral department the
leading feature and they ask mine owners and prospectors to enter into the
spirit of the plan and boost the mineral
along. The neeessity of a representative
mineral display at the Fair was admitted
by members, the following committee
being appointed to make arrangements
for same: Messrs. Groffman, Lumsden,
Marlow and Willarson.
From the Toronto Daily Star re descriptive matter of Princeton for publication. Secretary Avery replied that he
had forwarded a board of _tjade booklet.
The notice of motion re smelter by
J. D. Lumsden was discussed at considerable length, resulting in the appointment of C. Willarson as correspondent
with those interested in the smelting
business. A number of eligible locations
are available near Princeton for a smelter
structure.
A. S. Wyllie was elected a member of
the Board.
Board adjourned.
and respectfully solicit further contributions from those who have not yet subscribed. Donations will be thankfully
received and dulv acknowledged by tbe
secretary of the Board, A. J. Marlow, at
the Bauk of Commerce.
DISCOVERY OF COAL BASIN ]
ON SUNDAY CREEK.
The discovery of another coal basin is
the latest topic among mineral gossips
and is proving an interesting subject.
It proves what has been generally con
ceded by geologists and prospectors that
a succession of coal basins was forrped by
upheavals o£_eartb_aj,ong the east slope
of Hope mountains. The Sunday Creek
basin recentlv found by prospectors C. &
J. Snowden, L. McMullen and C. T>owell.
is some 2£~miles southwest of Princeton
near the Similkameen river. Outcrop-
pings of the coal submitted to experts
have been pronounced bituminous, but a
thorough test will be made when a seam
has been uncovered All the usual indications of coal in body are present and
miners are now  at  work for the purpose
, of making a  showing.     Sixteen claims
I have been staked.
GOOD WORK BEING DONE BY
GOVERNMENT.
Road work is in full swing in and
around town, giving employment to a lot
I of men and making needed improvements and repaiis. Bert Thomas is doing
some grading in town which, when completed, will make one of the finest thoroughfares in the province. The provincial government, under advisement of
Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., is certainly prov
ing its willingness to advance the inter
esls of the country. In this respect the
Dominion government has an excellent
example to follow and do something for
the benefit of the town and district.
TRUSTEES OF HOSPITAL CALL
FOR TENDERS.
At the meeting of the Hospital Trustee
Board today it was decided to call for
tenders for the erection of a building on
the site donated by Iht Vermilion Forks
Co. The plans, furnished by C. Graham,
show a building 38x53, 1 storey, cottage,
with a capacity for ten patients and room
space for all the various requirements of
a small, yet uptodate, hospital. The
building is planned from suggested ideas
of members of the board and physicians
and is the embodiment of comfort, convenience and economic operation. A
verandahi2 feet wide extends across the
fronts-TheTJuTrdTmrwill BSve ^s  feet of
"win nav"
lawn space in front besides ample ground
surrounding for walks and ornamental
purposes. Chairman Waterman and the
members of the   Board  are"~iiopeful  of>
THE NATIONAL HOLIDAY.
Dominion Day falls on Friday this year
and is only about three weeks away. If
there is anything done in the line of a
celebration work must begin at once.
The usual public meeting and appointment of committees are necessary as a
starter. If we cannot have a balloon
ascension, perhaps some one will rise to
the occasion and deliver a patriotic oration. In any case a baseball tournament,
races, athletic sports and fireworks are
needed to make the day memorable.
Of course this is an 'off' year for celebrations all over the empire owing to the
lamented death of the late King, but
there can be uo disrespect shown in patriotic observance of the national holiday. It is understood a surplus approximating $160 is in the Bank of Commeice
on deoosit from last vear's celebration.
The Empire Cafe on Vermilion Av. is
now open to the public. See adv't on
3rd page.
THE WEEKLY CRIST
Chief Engineer of Kettle Valley
Railway Inspects the
Surveyed Line.
Celebrated  Historian   and  Publicist
Dies—Tenders for Hospital
Are Called.
H. D. Lumsden, chief engineer of the
pKettle Valley railway, which will have a
six mile spur to Princeton, recently made
a trip over the route from Penticton to
Aspen Grove, thence to Merritt and up
the Coldwater.The line will be located
at once preparatory to construction. Actual construction will begin early in July.
This line is bonussed $9400 per mile for
the entire distance of 250 miles by both
Dominion and provincial governments.
Angus Lamont is improving in health
and spirits since taking new treatment
for his serious complaint. His oldtime
tillicums hope to see him around in usual
good form shortly.
Hugh Campbell received the sad intelligence last week that his nephew,
Herbert Bond, had met death while prospecting on the west coast of Vancouver
Island. The young man had a particularly bright and promising career cut all
too short by his accidental death. He
was a graduate of Newfoundland University, Rhodes scholar, and a mining
engineer! Mr. Campbell feels very keenly the loss of his nephew, whom he had
expected a visit from this summer.
J E Kennedy, C.E., arrived from Vancouver recently and is in charge of the
railway tunnel construction.
C. H. Broughton, D.L.S , with a party,
has gone up to Summit Camp to survey
mineral claims for a number of owners.
CoLStevenson is in the party as guide,
and although over 70 years old he can
give many young—fellows 'cards and
spades' in mountaineering.
Miss Fiaser, Granite Creek, was the
guest recently of Mrs. L. Huston, Kenley
Av.
If you won't boost, don't knock those
with enterprise and public spirit, for they
are the ones who build up and improve
the town socially aud materially.
Next Saturday afternoon, weather permitting, will be the formal opening day
of the Tennis Club. All interested are
invited to attend. Tea will be served on
the Club grounds.
Jack Way, lineman and telephone expert, was in town repairing the Dominion government line last Thursday. The
electric storm on Sunday dislocated some
connections and burned a battery out.
Through no fault of Star the following
names, of officers were omitted from the
list published last week of the new Re-,
bekah Lodge: Mrs. J. O. Coulthard, Warden ; Mrs. Thnrburn-Conn, Chaplain;
Mrs. Saunders, Conductor. Tbe Lodge
already has a membership of 24 and has
begun under very promising circumstances.
Both Mrs. W. D. Gordon and Mrs-
Swanson have been beard from since
leaving here for the old land, having arrived at Liverpool. Mrs. Gordon goes to-
rignbimpnan, Scotlar"^ visiting relatives.
A. Hickling, director-manager of the
Vermilion Forks Co., is expected to arrive next week.
The continued article on Tulameen
Platinum and a letter from 'Prospector'
will appear next week.
Prof. Goldwin Smith, eminent historian
and litterateur, is dead, at Toronto.
M. A. Nelmes, a Chilliwack real estate^
dealer, with his family, are visiting Mr,
and Mrs. M. Wilson.
Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Howse are anticipating a visit from old country relatives
and friends in a couple of weeks.—Nicola
Valley News.
A. L. White and wife left this week oar
a visit to Greenwood.
SERVICES OF SECRETARY
APPRECIATED.
One of those pleasing little functions-
which take the 'rough edge' off life and
illustrates-the eternal fitness of things
took place the other day in the consulting office of the Bank of Commerce,
when E; Waterman on behalf of the.
Board of Trade presented Manager Mar-"
low a beautiful solid silver cigarette case.
It was a slight appreciation of Mr. Mar-
low's long, faithful and unselfish services
as secretary of the Board now reluctantly
terminated by other pressing duties. The
gift is a cunningly devised example of
the silversmith's art being suitably inscribed and initialled 'A. J. M.' Mr.
Marlow feelingly replied thanking the
members present and all who were responsible for the handsome presentation^
THE MUSICAL ECKHARDTS
MAKE GOOD.
For two hours last Saturday night Oddfellows' Hall was peopled with a large;
interested, amused and intelligent audi--
ence, the Eckhardt Musicians and Swiss
Bell Ringers proving to be all that the
press had said in praise of them. 'Clean •
and clever' was the general expression
applied to them ; to particularize being
difficult where all the members of the
company were specialists in their role.
An air of refinement and purity pervaded-
the whole entertainment, the artistic
background throwing into bold relief the
splendid talents of the performers. Manager Lumsden will always have full
houses with such companies to play_
The Eckhardts will be welcome back.

NEEDED REFORMS, BUT NO
ONE TO MAKE THEM.
Complaints are so general and
strenuous from persons of all shades
of political belief regarding the
management and operation of the
Dominion government telephone
line that it seems strange no efiort
as made to remedy the wrongs. The
.Nicola Valley Board of Trade recently passed a strong vote of cen-
-sure on Superintendent Stevens and
asked that another man be placed
-in charge of that particular district.
A telephone exchange was promised
Merritt long ago but there is no
more sign of its installation than
the day it was asked for. It seems
^that Superintendent Stevens is either
.'too busy with private telephone
lines or wilfully and spitefully neglects his duty as a public servant.
Whatever the cause or the motive
may be there is absolutely no reason for the government to permit
an injustice or wrong to be imposed
on any portion of the people.
And these remarks, directed more
particularly to the Department of
Public Works, are applicable also
to other departments where wrong
methods of administration and
operation exist. Any official or
bis subordinate who does not give
general satisfaction to the public
should be treated just the same as
an employe of any private concern
—dismissed. No foreman, P O.
inspector, telephone superintendent
or Ordinary public servant is worth
his salt who does not grasp the fact
that he is responsible to tbe people
-who pay him and whom he serves.
When an employe of the public
gets the notion that he is the government and that his convenience
is of more importance than that of
the masses, it is time for a radical
change. Of course the Conservatives of Yale-Cariboo inwardly rejoice at the muddle, and the incompetency of some Liberal appointees,
knowing that such conditions always make votes for them and that
at the next general election Mr.
Burrell, M.P., will have instead of
806, probably 1800 majority.
^ NOTES AND COMMENTS.
>. The improvemeuts going on in
and around Princeton are eloquent
of the prospects which all citizens
entertain of this section. No doubt
every effort now put up for the advancement of the town will have
its certain reward in attractiveness
and increased population.
The question of a smelter brought
to the attention of the Board of
Trade is one of vital importance to
all interests in the Similkameen.
On the choice of a location for a
smelter depemds much of its suc-
•oess.    Two great mineral sections
converge at Princeton and coking
coal is within a few miles—capital
can do the rest.
It takes a long time to get old
countries out of a rut—at last, the
embargo on Canadian cattle is to go.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.
The metallurgist needs the book fot
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what,- and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannol
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine desctiptions on the
other, coyejjing the-copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE : $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS: The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all

or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you?
