Excellent coal for domestic use '—Princeton coal.
Praise and I oior hunting persons never get the real articles.
Princeton is destined to be a railway divisional point; Nature says so, and so do engineers—Its location marks it as the commercial
metropolis of the Interior—Good climate; Health resort; Sportsmen's paradise , Minerals abound: Homeseekers' haven.

HIGH SCHOOL EXAMS.
Princeton School Near Top, Creditable
to Teacher and Scholars.
The pupils of Princeton school made a
remarkably good showing in the High
School Entrance examinations held here
last May. Not only did all four pass, a
most unnsual thing for a common school,
but their marks were in most cases well
above the average of successful candidates, only four children in the province
getting better marks than the head pupil,
Ralph Murdoch. The marks ate as follow1?:
. Ralph B. Murdoch, 784 ; Ruby L. McMullen, 752; Marie S. Murdoch, 650;
Gladys Lyall, 579.
No other common school sent up as
good a class as this, and oniy two or
three of the graded schools did better.
These results were obtained without
overworking the pupils at all, home work
being kept down to a minimum. Principal Cochrane must be congiatulated on
the excellent showing of his pupils, reflecting, as it does, the highest credit
upon him as teacher and also proving the
intellectual faculties of the scholars—
the Star wishes them continued success
and progress.
Mr. Cochrane leaves in a day or two
for the coast, making his third trip over
the mountains afoot in a month. He
finds that the work and worry of the
past year have weakened his nerves so
that he will have to give up teaching for
a time at least. It is hoped that he will
be fully restored in health and thus be
permitted to resume his noble profession
as principal of Princeton school. He
takes with him the highest respect and
good wishes of all.
ROAD TO COPPER MOUNTAIN.
Geo. Goldsbrough, government road
foreman, has completed the Copper
Mountain road, which is now ready for
the heaviest traffic. This road now supplies a want long felt, and Mr. Shatford
has shown good judgment in spending
the money necessary to placing it in condition for hauling supplies, ore and machinery. Development of the world
known mineral resources of Copper
Mountain has always been hampered by
great expense of freighting over a road
which was never fully completed. Indeed, it is surprising that so much work
on the various mineral claims there
should have been done in the face of
such difficult and expensive transportation.
Owing to the resignation of D. Cochrane, B.A., a teacher, male or female, is
required for Princeton school. The salary is $75 per month. Applications may
be sent to Board of School Trustees.
Neil McFadden, it. is understood, has
the contract for laying the sidewalk to
the court house.

Engineers in Coquihalla Pass, Already
Located by Great Northern
Years Ago.
A big pack train passed through town
on Sunday in charge of Mr. Guthrie of
Nicola, bound for Hope. The outfit will
be used for packing supplies to a party of
C.P.R. engineers working in the Coquihalla Pass. It is a matter of common report that the President of the
C.P R., Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, is very
anxious to have an alternative route for
tbe C.P R., beginning at Ruby Creek,
below Hope, crossing the Fraser and
following the Coquihalla over Hope
mountains, thence in a nearly straight
line across country to Penticton, thence
along Okanagan Lake to the Landing,
there connecting with the Sicamous
branch. This route would be a great
saving in mileage across continent besides obviating difficult- grades and expensive maintenance for high speed.
This is the route indicated by Sir Thomas
in a speech at Rossland some time ago.
The C.P.R. may yet easily be first to give
Princeton direct connection with the
jcoas™*
The V.,V. &E. is located through Coquihalla Pass, but, excepting one or two
narrow defiles, there is room for two or
more tracks. Of course the railway company that gets busy first with the earth
in the Pass is the one to merit the confidence and support of the people. If the
C.P.R. means business the mine owners
and other tonnage producers in the Similkameen will heartily welcome them.
The tardiness with which the V.,V. & E.
is being built lends suspicion that it will
be many years, if ever, before it reaches
the coast.   Whether it be Hill, Shaugh-

KAMLOOPS S'PORTS A DAILY.
The Inland Sentinel of Kamloops has
begnn issue of a daily, which indicates a
high and progressive spirit on behalf of
Bro. Wade, the proprietor, and also shows
that the town is advancing and ambitious. A town that affords a healthy,
respectable and influential paper has an
asset of inestimable value, in fact it is
impossible to have a town or city in these
enlightened days of the 20th century
without a daily or weekly press. The
Star congratulates the Sentinel and hopes
that its widened sphere will add to its
editor's treasure here and hereater. It is
not improbable that Princeton will also
have a daily newspaper in the near future.

'Governor' Dewdney left for the coast
via Nicola last Thursday after a week's
stay in this section.
Lowell Petrie, of St. Joseph, Mo., is
visiting his uncle, Jim Snowden, and recuperating his health in this bracing climate.
The body of a dead man was found at
the back of a building on Macphail's
ranch, Otter Valley. Constable Clark of
Nicola took charge of the remains. A
paper found in the clothing leads to the
supposition that the man's name was
O'Neil.
G. Blair, of Mackay SmifH^Blair & Co.,
Vancouver, wholesale drygoods, was at
Otter Flat and Granite last week, aiso
with his daughter and young lady companion visited Princeton and were guests
at Maplehurst.
Charlie Day came in from Highland
Valley last week and reports brightest
prospects in that camp. It is there that
Day & Knight own the well known
Twenty-Four Hour claim.
It is estimated that 200,000 applications
will be made up to" August 5th for homestead entries in the three U. S. government reservations which will be
thrown open to settlers. The drawing
will be made in Coeur d'Alene city, beginning August 9. The successful applicants will be notified of their numbers
by the land office there. Entries for the
lands will begin April 1. 1910.
FULL OF YEARS AND RESPECT.
J. C. Tunstall, Gold Commissioner, of
Kamloops, came in on the Nicola stage
last week, leaving Thursday on return.
This is the 'Judge's' farewell official visit,
the commissionership now being transferred to the local mining recorder, H.
Hunter, insofar as his territory extends.
The 'Judge' is looking hale and hearty,
notwithstanding many years of strenuous
life on the frontier, over thirty of
which have been spent iu government
service. He has been a Terr popular
official and is well deserving of superannuation. A host of friends will wish
him long years of enjoyment in this the
evening of his life.
SIMILKAMEEN SAWMILL.
New and Convenient Location for Big
Mill—Large Orders.
The Similkameen Lumber Co. recently
removed its sawmill plant to the new
location on the south side of the Similkameen, a short distance below Allison. In'
the new location a great advantage.has
been obtained in the important matter
of convenience. Logs may be delivered
to the mill from the river and the lumber
delivered immediately to the cars on a
sidetrack in the millyard. This will save
team haulage to Princeton and other
places when the long looked for V.,V. &
E. is in operation. Orders for all kinds
of lumber are being received and the mill
will be taxed to its full capacity for some
time to come in filling them.
CHARITY COVERS PILE OF SIN.
The C.P.R. Co. has given the sum of
$2500 to educate the sou of Constable
Decker, who was killed by a train robV-
ber. The money has been placed with
the Royal Trust Co. at Vancouver. This
will be distinct from the reward of $5000
held up for the capture of the bandits,
one-third of which the family of Decker
will receive, together with one-third of
the government reward of $2500.
The monnted police and specials have
been called off the chase of the robbers
and quiet detective work substituted. It
is reported that a clue has been found-in
Nicola and detectives are now working
from Princeton to Spences Bridge on it.
OBITUARY.
The fast thinning ranks of the old
argonauts or goldhunters :who came to
B.C. in the early days was lessened by
one on Monday night in the death of
Charles DeBarro, at the home of his old
friend, D. McKay, Otter Valley. The
deceased was one of the first placer miners on Granite Creek and struck it rich.
He went to South America and South
Africa in search of bigger diggings.spend^
ing most of his little fortune, returning?
to Granite Creek in broken health, which
he never regained. He was a man whose
word was 'as good as gold' and had many
friends. Little is known of his early life
or relatives. He was about 60 years of
age. Funeral today at 11 o'clock at
Granite Creek.   Requiescat in pace.
The Hawkeye Fuel Co., of Seattle, recently made a burning test of Princeton
coal and were so highly pleased with its
calorific qualities that they have sent for
a few hundred pounds with which, it is
presumed, to make analytical investigation.
As opposed to optimism the cold fact
stands out boldly that capital must be
induced to come or it won't come at all.
Railroad building is slow now compared with 25 years ago when thousands
of men were employed on construction.

PROVIDE FOR NECESSARIES AND
COMFORTS IN OLD AGE.
A booklet issued by authority of
the Dominion Government from the
Right Hon. Sir Richard Cartwright,
Minister- in charge, sets forth the
plan and examples of government
annuities. The primary object of
the father (Sir Richard) of the
scheme is to secure independence,
comfort and happiness in old age.
Any person from the age of 5 years
to 80 is eligible. No health conditions or medical examination are
required, as in the case of ordinary
life insurance. Annuity' meaus
an annual payment of money but
Sir Richard improves on that by
making the payments quarterly, beginning aft the age of 55. The system gives the annuitant full benefit
of the investment, there being no
rakeoffs, high salaried directors,
or embezzling agents and managers
to eat the widow's or other deserving .person's rightful profits. No
wildcat speculations with the money
of the annuitant ; no such word as
'fail' as long as the Government of
Canada stands.
No Socialism, however advanced
and practicable, could do better
for the aged and infirm ; for none
but the helpless, or the utterly
improvident and prodigal need now
go without comforts in old age.
It is the nearest to getting something for nothing, without being
termed 'charity,' that the Star has
yet observed, and should appeal to
the socialist, the benevolent and
the humanitarian. The system differs from pensions or gratuities in
that the annuitant gives full value
for every cent he receives. The
Government is making commendable effort to relieve and comfort a
very deserving class of citizens and
jsvery newspaper should be glad .of
rthe opportunity of making the public acquainted with its advantages.
Following are extracts from the interesting booklet, which, with card,
may be obtained from postmasters :
"The Government will assist yon—
dt will look after your instalments—it has
advantages for investment which a private individual cannot enjoy—it will act
as your banker—it will do all this for you
absolutely free of charge, and you need
have no fear that your savings will be lost
by dishonest or extravagant management.
Many men have been ruined, or have
seen their hard-earned savings disappear
by improvident investment or by rushing
into unwise speculations. You will be
saved from such disaster and humiliation
If you invest your savings with the Government for the purchase of annuity.
But the Government has done more
than merely to place the facilities within
your reach for making this provision.. It
has provided by statute that you cannot
be deprived of your annuity in any manner, by any person or by any process of
law.
A society, or an association of persons,
being a body corporate for fraternal, benevolent, religious or other lawful purposes, may contract for annuities for its
members.
A few examples : Beginning at 20 years
of age, and paying 25 cents a week until
he is 60, may provide an annuity or income for the remainder of his life of
$129.91.
A man beginning at 25, and pa3'ing 25
cents a week until he is 60, will receive
#99-34 at 60.
A man beginning at 30, and paying 25
cents a week until he is 60, will receive
$74.73 at 60.
A man beginning at 20 with a cash
payment of $10, paying 25 cents a week,
and adding $10 every 5 years until he is
60 will receive an annuity of $151.96 ui
the age of 60.1
If you should die before the annuity
becomes payable, all payments made
with compound interest at 3 per cent per
annum will be returned to your heirs."
Under the provisions of the Annuities Act every man, woman and
child may be insured against want
and poverty in old age. It assures
that independence which is the
source of much contentment in old
age. The merits of the scheme are
undoubted aud must appeal to a
large ciientele throughout tbe Dominion. It must become popular
because there is not a shadow of a
risk and no one shares in the profit
but the annuitant.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Election of a school trustee to
fill a vacancy ou tbe Board is called
for August 2nd. It is hard to understand why parents with children
attending school are so reluctant in
turning up at school meetings. Of
all people they ought to manifest
some interest in school matters, for
the school vitally affects the character and efficiency of the scholar
now and in later lite. The qualifications for, and duties of, trustee
are so simple that a child might
undertake them if permitted by law
yet there is a strange indifference
of parents toward the position.
Any school should have frequent
visits from the trustees and parents
generally. jfjfe--
The Star is not hunting for controversy, but it roust object to the
slander uttered by the Enderby
Press that 'the religious passion is
akin to the sensual passion,' &c.
For downright insult to all the
millions of believing Christians nothing has ever reached this sanctum quite so vulgar and quite so
false. What (a)kinship is there
between light and darkness, decency
and vulgarity, tbe average religious
person and the libertine, morality
and immorality ? The Press belongs to the black and yellow class.

THE PHILOSOPHY OP LIPE.
It often takes a keavj load to get some
people's knees into kneeling position.
More than diamonds, silver or gold tbe
virtue of humility adorns. It is the passport into good society and makes lovable
the homeliest person. The company of
the proud, imperious person is never
courted.
In every flock a few are off color—no
snowdrift without specks of dirt.
The knocker is about the only bird of
piey' that befouls his own nest. In attempting to besmear his betters with
