/ RAILWAY OFFICIALS VISET. \
J. J. Warren, president of the Kettle
Valley Railway Co., and A-"McC_llongh>
chief engineer, were in Princeton last
Thursday, en route from Penticton to
Merritt. No importance is attached to.
their presence beyond the fact that they
are as mere officials attending to their
duties in connection with the construe
tion of the road. They inspected the"
BC cement works at Onemile and went
to Fivemile, where the preliminary sur-.
vey of the line reaches out toward Sum
merland. It is evident that the C.P.R.,
which is behind the K. V ', is' considering
the advisability of paralleling its old
competitor and come down Otter valley
to Coalmont and the Tulameen valley to
Princeton for coal, coke, ore and cement
tonnage. In that event the line would
ascend Fivemile from its junction with
the Simiikametn river. In any case the
next contract let from the Merritt end of
the line _ill'decide the route.
THE MAGIC OF COAL

From Our Own Correspondent.
• .Coalmont", Aug.   5,  1911.—The   Coal-,
mont postemice was opej_3d^_n  the  ist
inst.   Jsaac McTavislj/is^JMtmaster arid'
there is daij£sei_£____v___l.
J. J". Warren, pres.-and Mr. McCullough,
chief engineer of the Kettle River Valley
railroad arrived at Coalmont this a. m.
After examining the property and the
work that is being prosecuted by the
Columbia Coal" & Coke Co, they were
greatly impressed with the possibilities
. of tonnage and it _s believed that before
long thtf/BTulanieen river will be traversed
by this line of rail way, which will afford
another outlet for the product of the
coal mine.
During the past week Coalmont has
been visited by a number of investment
seekers,- arid^tbe lots on the Coalmont
townsite, which ate being handled by
Williatn^pn & Turner are being rapidly
disposed of., „
It is quite evident that the minerals of
this district are receiving increased atteiu
tion as engineers representing large interests-have been here during the past
few days examining properties, which
are likely to be placed under option. It
is reported that the large mountain known
-_s the porphyry or red bluffs, near Welldo, v>hich are higMy mineralized,
will be thoroughly prospected in the
near future by eastern capitalists.
The railroad work between Princeton^
and Coalmont is being pushed rapidly
towards completion, and it is expected
that vtrains will be running into Coalmont within a month. As soon as the
rails reach here it is expected that the
contracts will be let for 40 miles of grading to be completed this fall. This will
make Coalmont a busy town while that
work is going on. The coal company is
now employing 100 hands.
The Coalmont hotel contract has been
awarded to P. -McRae^_*id~^_?\_ Anderson, and the basernentSjs-iow under construction. The hotel will be first class
in every respect, and one of the best .Between Spokane and Vancouver.
G. L, Fraser, manager, and W. L.
Parrish, Sec-Treas., of the Columbia
Coal & Coke Co., visited Princeton and
called at the B.C. Cement works. They
were surprised with the immens possibilities in connection. with the develop^.
ment of this plant, aud with the possibility of a smelter being established to
take care of the copper ores adjacent _to
the locality, and look forward to a good
demand for coal and coke from Coalmont.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the
V.~V. & E. Ry., was a visitor in this district' duritlg the' past week ana states that
the final survey to ths summit has been
made and contracts for grading are likely
to be let in the near future. The company have a force, of surveyors at work
between the summit and Hope and there
is every cossib-lity that Coalmont will
have direct railway communication with
Vancouver within/18 months: which will
give irupftus towards the development of
southern B. Cr
Hon. C. H. Campbell, Attordey General, of Manitoba, and director of the
coal company, who has just returned
frpm London,.E. C_will visit the mine
shortly in company witfar!"the president
j. W. Bettes, of Winnepeg.
The tunnel which will be diiven into
the coal seam is now 1300 feet long and
is being rapidly pushed to completion.
The timber for the; tramline is now being prepared and j ttie:-: Erection of the
tipple and tramline will soon be commenced. i«_fc.

of the Liberal paf^_TOiyaleeC»i_^pjin,(,
the forthcoming election. onSept.*«St/
His name will come before the convention to be held in Kamloops next Monday, 14th inst., and  it  is  quite probable
he  will be the choice.   Mr. Macintyre
is a strong 'man  politically, of unquestioned ability, an   ardent friend of reciprocity and one who would as a member
of parliament safeguard the interests of
all his constituents.
.-BAND CONCERT AND BALL.
The band concert and grand ball which
are advertised for Friday, Aug. 18th, will
be an event in the social world to which
many are now looking forward. From
outside points the entertainment will be
well patronized and the local patronage
is bound to be generous. The band has
proven an oasis in the desert of social
life and public appreciation is sure to be
manifest in large attendance. Reserve
the date and sassche all.

DAMAGING DELAY.
Again  there is the discouraging
prospect of an idle winter and another period of many weary months
of delay in constructing the V.,V.
& E.   Dragging along at  a pace
that would shame  the proverbial
snail this railroad seems now to be
' merely   marking   time,   frittering
away golden  opportunities for the
development of the great  natural
resources of the Similkameen and
other districts through  which the
road  is  supposed  to pass.    Many
persons have invested  their all in
the Similkameen, having seen the
railroad at one time under actual
construction    as    an   inducement.
They now   regret the   confidence
placed by them in   the projected
V.,V. and point to other sections
where progress and success have
gone hand in   hand.    Construction
of the Kettle Valley line drags on
in much  tljg^agp a^gfc/Both of
these roads have  th^r same destination, Vancouver, and  the residents
of   the  Similkameen   want   quick
connection  with this growing seaport.    Since both roads have legislative rights  and  concessions from
_»oth the  Dominion  and provincial
governments  it  is only  right that
the people director interested should
expect the ministers of railways to
safeguard their requirements.    The
early completion of these roads is a
vital necessity.   No more flirting
with  time  by  the railroad companies  will  be  tolerated.    The  pro
vincial and   Dominion  authorities
are the  custodians of the  people's
rights and   they must compel the
railroad companies to complete in
reasonable time.
tremely   important   bearing   upon
Princeton   and   the  Similkameen
generally.     The first is : Are you
in favor of the immediate completion of the V.,v. & E. railway and
will you use all  your influence to
procure the same if elected ?   Second : Will you favor the removal
of all duty on coal and its product ?
These questions answered  in the
affirmative by a sincere and reliable
candidate will cover our most necessitous claims  upon  any candidate, be he Liberal or Conservative.
With free coal  and direct railway
transportation to the coast this district would bound into prominence
and prosperity at one leap.
*^**l***l*^\l**^t^^
THE NEW TOWN
Why not have universal peace ?
Even if some giddy emperor has to
be 'licked' to obtain it.
Woman suffrage is drawing nearer with every election. So many
votes are now influenced by booze
and promises of remuneration of
one kind or another that publicists
are agreed that the cleansing and
purifying influence of women is
needed at the polls. How many
candidates in this election are in
favor of women voters ?
Sickness is the product of sin,
It is impossible to remedy evil with
evil. The Great Physician healed
wholly, permanently.
Reading an editorial in the Press
it is observed that pessimism is
rampant in Penticton. Well, if
that is the extent of its troubles
what must be thought of a town
that is afflicted with knockitis.
Optimism and the ability to put
away all doubt or fear will work
wonders in new towns. Any place
is just what citizens choose to make
it. Pessimistic persons are usually ,
tbe result of disappointment in
love, social status or success and
produces a morbid state of mind
bordering on insanity or chronic
hypochondria. Better to be an optimist.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Reciprocity and the wider market
with a nation of eighty millions of
consumers.
The European war cloud has
again rolled away and the horizon
appears bright ■once more. But it
is difficult to forecast twenty-four
hours what the political weather
will be while the storm king resides at Berlin. If all the other
nations would do as Britain, France
.and the .United States have done
there would be none left for the
storm   king   to quarr.l with.
In a guess as to whether the millennium or the direct railway to
the coast would materialize first it
looks as if chances were about even.
The C.P.R. president and the autocrat of the G.N.R. are apparently
in collusion to delay construction
just as long as the people will allow themselves to be jollied. A
big petition for the next sitting of
parliament would at least ventilate
the tardiness of the railway pro-
crastinators.

country boulevards.    There is
exhilarating pleasure in

gassy chug-chug.
