THE BOARD OF TRADE
Westminster   Boafd Requests
Information Relating to
Railway Projects.
Great Northern as Medium for Inducing Capital—Man's Choice to
Settle Here.
The regular meeting of the Board of
Trade was held Monday night, at which
there was a good, representative attendance and important matters brought
up. After routine communications were
read as follows:
From the secretary of the New Westminster Board of Trade asking for details
of the proposed railway routes through
Princeton and district and stating that
* it would be in the interest of onr citizens to support the projects with all our
power, and with a view to action with
local boards of trade or other progressive
bodies.' Secretary to reply, giving what
information he deems requisite.
From G. S. Lawrence, of the B. C-
Fruitlands Co , Keremeos, re advertising
the Similkameen valley unitedly with
Hedley and Keremeos. He also said:
' The Great Northern will do a lot for us
if we supply the reading matter; this
company has a staff of men that are busy
all the time enlisting capitai in the valley.' Mr. Lawrence stated that a very
fine article on the resources of the Similkameen by an English journalist had
appeared in a Winnipeg paper and the
same writer, Mr. Duthie, will contribute
special articles to British journals on our
vast mineral resources. Secretary Marlow will reply.
From H. B. Abdy, Vancouver, requesting maps and literature about Princeton
and stating that he was a reader of the
Star, and, although a resident of the
United States for the past eight years he
had made up his mind to settle in the
•Princeton country.'
Under the head of reports Magistrate
Waterman reported by proxy that he had
not written to the member owing to his
(Mr. Shatford) illness. Regarding enforcement of the law relating to peace,
order and decorum on the streets the
constable had been requested to give full
force and effect to it. It was learned that
Princeton would soon have a government
agent, as in some other towns, and some
change was contemplated then in the
matter of constabulary.
Mr. Nathan addressed the Board re
waterworks, urging municipal ownership
and early action.
Messrs Pyman and Upshall also addressed the Board, the former regretting
severance from the Board and departure
from town to his former home. He would
always have a good word for Princeton
and had faith in the future of this country. The latter, as a stranger and visitor,
admired Princeton for its beauty and
the evidences of progress; its coal mine
was a source of much interest to him.
He believed in the great resources as a
means of prosperity.
Board adjourned.
SPECIAL SCHOOL MEETING.
At the special meeting of ratepayers
held on Monday last to elect a trustee in
place of J. O. Conlthard, resigned, H. H.
Avery, sr , was unanimously chosen. He
will also act as secretary to the Board.
The resignation of teacher Cochrane
was read, and steps already taken bv the
trustees to fill the vacancy were stated to
the meeting.
The motion to add three lots in rear
of the school for playground was carried
without disseut. The terms as submitted
by the manager of the V.F.M. Co , art
$600 for lots 27, 28 and 29 in block 24;
#50 down, #50 next July, balance in equal
annual payments of Jioo witn interest at
8 p c. Should the option from now until
next July be not allowed to expire then
the first $50 will apply toward purchase
price. Deed may be obtained any time
on payment of principal and interest.
OLD MARE BELATED HIM.
A. Murchie, photographer, has written
from Westbank, stating that he will be
back in Princeton soon. He would have
been here months ago but his foxy old
brown mare ran away with a band of
wild horses and left him afoot. He will
come, anyway, even if the old thing
don't have enough horse sense to return
where she always got a square deal and
only an occasional 'long oat.' Mr. Murchie is pleased to hear of the steady progress made in Princeton. Like many
others he may be trsubled with wan-
derfoot, but 'as sure as figs is figs'- they
all return to the old town. Something
magnetic about the place, and it isn't
iron that draws them, either. Times
may be kind of quiet for a few days in
the year but that does not injure the
glorious prospect. Hark ! Is that the
neigh of one of Jim Hill's horses coming
around the curve? Now the headlight
of progress dispels the gloom. How
d'ye do, Mr. Murchie ?
Orville Wright is a bird—he recently
broke all records and 'fills the bill' for
Uncle Sam.
The tracklayers are coming along well
and fully expect to be in Hedley by the
15th inst.
At Omaha, Neb., tests of a new serum
for prevention of typhoid have been very
successful. Two persons drank freely of
stagnant water in which one million
typhoid germs had been placed. After
seven days they have been declared immune and the serum a certain preventa
tive.
HOPE RAILWAY PASS
Sunset Editor on the Spot with
Engineer and Knows
the Facts.
Vancouver   Daily   Press Ignore the
Hope Mountain Eoutes for
Ulterior Reasons.
The Saturday Sunset of July 24 contains much interesting matter relating to
the railway situation in the Similkameen
and Nicola districts. Its editor recently
made a reconnaissance of the available
Hope Mountain passes with a civil engineer and what he says in the Sunset has
the ring of fact backed by scientific investigation. In truth, the Sunset is the
only newspaper in Vancouver unhampered by political strings or railway influence. Its pronouncements may, therefore, be accepted as credible and in the
interests of the people. The Star will
reprint the Sunset articles seriatim and
in installments, made necessary by its
capacity.   It savs:
" It is amazing and painful with what
cheerful idiocy the Coast newspapers in
season and out of season, editorially and
in their news columns, condemn the possibility of a practical railwav route
through the Hope Mountains. It is incomprehensible that the coast newspapers
should so cavalierly dismiss as impracticable a route which means so mnch to
the interests of this province and particularly of Vancouver. No railway connection which Vancouver has in contemplation is more valuable to the future of
this city's growth and trade than that of
the Similkameen and Nicola, which alsp
means that of the Boundary and Koote-
nay."

GRANITE CREEK CRICKLETS.
(Prom Our Special Correspondent.!
Granite Creek, July 31.—The funeral of
the late Charles DeBarro was held from
his residence on Wednesday last, and
was attended by a large concourse of
friends from up and down the valley.
The floral tributes were numerous and
beautiful. Granite feels his death severely.
W. H. Holmes cut his foot in the instep on Friday with an axe but is fast
improving. He finished clearing the
trail up Granite to within about a mile
of Badger caeek. It is to be hoped the
government will appropriate enough
next time so that it can be cleared as far
as Champion creek, making an easy
route to the Summit.
A proposed road, of paramount importance to this section, is that leading to the
North Fork coal mines. The road is not
expensive to build.   It would make the
use of coal practicable for the whole of
the Tulameen, Granite and Otter Valley
sections; nobody can afford it now-and
pack it out on horses. Blacksmiths all
over the Similkameen district would be
glad to get this coal for their forges.
This is an opportunity for the member to-
do a great good at small cost.
The Granite creek suffragists, led by
Mrs. F. P. Cook, held a picnic on Welldo
townsite last Thursday. The male population is preparing to emigrate.
F. Stewart, partner of Charlie Lam-
beit, severely cut his wrist, necessitating
his return to the coast. His son Tommy,
and Noel Lambert accompanied him.
Dan Ross has returned from the Summit where he was doing his assessment
work.
Berries are very plentiful on WeHdo.
There is a rumor from New York that
some wealthy Americans would like to
get a hold on this townsite for fruit
growing. !/"l^4'> 'srf
A party  was held at the residence of*
W. H. Holmes on Saturday.   Music and
dancing were indulged in until morn,
ing.
HORSES TOOK FRENCH LEAVE.
Just as Summers & Wardle were unloading a van load of some of their far
famed bunch grass beef yesterday morning the horses got restless and bolted,
but were held in check for some distance-
by the nervy attempt of O. Rain to stop
the flying steeds. The horses gained
such momentum with the load that O.
had his iron grasp broken and the horses
sped around the block, being caught by
Mr. Summers, who skilfully yanked them
into position at the old stand and the
unloading continued. All's well that
ends well, no damage being sustained
and Sir Loin none the worse of his fast
ride.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
A. Broomfield, C. Willarson, Gus Johnson and O. Anderson were passengers
to Keremeos on a 'flying' special this
morning, where they will catch the daily
train for Chopaca (Chewterbacker) and
other wayside points.
Mr. and Mrs. Pyman leave on Monday
for Enderby, their old stamping ground.
They have made many friends here who
are loth to part with them.
It is a law of inevitable compensation
that just as the knocker knocks so he gets
knocked. The same law applies to a
booster. Be a booster and the world will
boost you!
Hon. W. J. Bowser, attorney-general,
is back from Europe.
J. H. Kennedy, chief of construction
on the V.,V. & E. was in town last week
making inspection of the work in progress here. Mr. H. Cowan of Montreal
accompanied him.
Mayor McLean of Ashnola was in
town Tuesday.

SOME POLITICAL REFLECTIONS.
The visit of the Minister of Public Works, Hon. W. Pugsley, and
the Secretary of State, Hon. C.
Murphy, can have none other than
good results for the ministers and
the province. B.C. has been a sort
of terra incognita to most Dominion ministers, as evidenced by their
"ejaculations of surprise at the magnitude, resources and progress of
the country. Each minister is a
representative-at-large of the Dominion, is well paid and has no
travelling expenses. It ought to
be incumbent, therefore, for each
minister to visit the provinces annually and thus familiaize themselves with the people and their
needs in an impressive way, such as
neither blue books nor newspapers
•can convej'.
Hon. Mr. Pugsley has expressed
& strong desire to assist any public
■work for the general good which
possesses merit. Notwithstanding
:the fact that B.C. is overwhelmingly
Conservative in representation at
^Ottawa, Minister Pugsley is broad
guage enough to forget reverses and
.defeats and in spite of these and
Tory jealousy, make plans for improvement of the Narrows at Vancouver and the Fraser river. This
is statesmanship. His visit to this
province cannot fail to result in
good—both in winning high opinions of himself from the people and
the carrying out of necessary improvements.
The Minister of Public Works
came unscathed through the fiery
ordeal of intense hatred and malignity of enemies in and out of the
House who, apparently, had determined on his overthrow and political ruin. He is all the better of
.the hail of criticism, and the rank
^partiality of a quasi-judicial commission appointed to, if possible,
pick some hole in his coat. They
=all failed miserably and the hon.
minister is today, next to Premier
Laurier, the strongest member of
the cabinet. Instead of weakening
the man whose ability they feared,
his enemies have made him all the
stronger—such is the effect of slander in any walk of life when silently
borne or patiently combatted.
No ministerial cabinet since the
•day of Confederation will stand
comparison either in the aggregate,
or individually, with tbe present
Laurier government. Though assailed with every kind of political
weapon,  from the sandbag to the
bomb, nothing has been brought to
the door of any of the minisrera
now serving which in any way imperils their character or administrative ability. If the work of
eliminating graft from the departments proceeds until all are cleansed
and remodelled and the banishment
of that nauseous word 'patronage'
from the official vocabulary is accomplished, then the foundations of
Liberal rule will have been securely
laid. The people have had a surfeit of graft in the past quarter of a
century and they will rally to the
banner of any leader who stands
for righteous, honorable government.
In Yale-Cariboo, Liberals have
had no cause to regret sending Mr.
Burrell, a Conservative, to Ottawa,
instead of the former Liberal member. He is seen to be a valuable
acquisition to the House. His
speeches are informative and untainted with that partizau flavor
which betrays the small politician.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Smelting is so closely allied to
mining that any indication of progress in the one affects the other.
The Trail smelter is having prosperous days, even with the low
price of metals, and must now increase its capacity to double if it
would treat all the ore and base
bullion offering.
Our somewhat erratic contemporary, the Chronicle, opposes the
new 'blue laws' of Washington and
struggles to take a 'fall' out of the
Star for venturing to commend them
as a whole in their intention and
tendency. Mr. Chronicle says that
a certain place is paved with good
intentions, thus inferentially arguing that a law of good intent and
tendency should be condemned anyway, or because this 'certain place
is paved with good intentions j
Well, friend Chronicle, your logic
is poor, your conclusion bad and
your intention and tendency worse.
On the same ground, one may reasonably infer, local option is opposed, or any other law that aims
to reform and uplift. It is difficult
to know some people's opinions—
whether they stand for good law,
loose law or none at all.
Hon. Dr. Pugsley stated at Victoria that the Dominion government would build drydocks capable
of accommodating the largest battleships on both the Atlantic and
Pacific seaboards. A Canadian
navy is the wise conclusion of the
government. Why not build and
man it in Canada?
Dr. Young, provinciSl minister
of education, states that the government will establish a teacher's
superannuation fund. . Why not
raise the salaries and thus attract
brainy and able men.

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 cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering 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
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you?

As the stocks of copper on hand decrease it is inevitable that the price will
