RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Largest Electric Railway Plan.
in Canada to be Built
near Chilliwack.
Vast Water Powers in Similkameen
Running Waste—V..V. & E. is
forging Ahead.
Work will soon be started on what will
be the largest and most expensive power
plant in Canada by the British Columbia
Electric Railway Co in the Chilliwack
district. The work will involve an expenditure of £10,000,000 and the plant
will produce ovei; 110,000 horse power of
electrical energy. The site of the proposed plant is a 100-acre tract, located a
short distance northeast of the Popcum
Indian reserve, and the sources of power
to be tapped are Jones lake and ChjllL-
wack lake. Engineers are now at work
in the Jones lake district. The eutire
work will take two and a half years to
construct.
Immense water powers are available in
the Princtton disttict for all purposes.
It is up to manufacturers and others to
harness the rivers and streams here and
save the millions of horse power now
running waste, j
J. H. Kennedy, construction engineer
of the V.,V. & E., came up from Vancouver last Friday and is looking over
the work in progress. Everything points
to early completion of the line as far as
contracted for. Though short of timber
on the tunnel now this work will not
delay the ultimate finishing of the road
to Otter Flat. Later on. the tunnel may
concreted. Construction is going on in
the vicinity of Sumas lake, but considerable porrions of that country are under
water. Mr Kennedy thinks that construction will continne right along until
the whole road is completed.
President Warren of the Kettle Valley
railway has stated that work begins at
once on the line and that Penticton will
be a divisional point.
BASEBALL, DOMINION DAT.
The baseball tournament is, of course,
the leading feature of the day, and with
that becoming pride which every citizen
takes in the Princeton team it is confidently expected that the $100 purse will
be placed to their credit at the end of
the series. Pitcher Farrell is in the pink
of condition and Catcher Clnte never
Jets anything withih reach pass his mitt.
Johnny Campbell is not exoected to be
present and his loss, though serious, is
not altogether irreparable. All.the members will give a creditable account of
themselves and  if  no professionals are
'wrung in' on them by the visitors there
is no doubt about the 'mou.'
BROTHERS MEET AFTER
LONG PARTING.
D^A*^Vilson of I,os Angeles, Cal., bro-
tSer of William and Maxwell—Wilson,
arrived on last week's Nicola stage. This
is the first time the three brothers have
been together in twenty-two years. The
Wilson brothers hail from the far famed
county of Bruce. Ont.. where their father,
who was one of its pioneers, still resides.
Mr. Wilson has been visiting friends on
the coast and in the Fraser vylley. He
much prefers the upper country with ks
dry climate and unlimited resources, and
predicts a prosperous future for Princeton. He will return here with his family
after a visit to the prairie provinces.
THE DAY WE CELEBRATE.
Big Crowds Coming from. District and
'Uncle Sam' Also.
The Dominion Day celebration committees are working like beavers and
the general results are most gratifying
and encouraging.
They are coming ! Wives, sweethearts
and tillicums. From end to end of the
Jimhilkameen valley they are coming to
smoke the pipe of peace and jubilate
generally, also see the 'elephant.'
It is a good idea to begin the celebration early in the morning and to do this
a loud salvo should be fired at 5 o'clock
a m. This is the official announcement
for everyone to get ready, also it answers
as a salute to the national flag, without
which a country's birthday is tame.  '
The cWaning of the streets is a good
move and when the sidewalks are completed no finer tho:oughfares can be
found.
Decorations are essential and every
private and public building should re*
ceive some attention along this line.
Secretary Carmichael is doing herculean service in promoting and arranging
the day's doings.
The races are expected to attract some
swift steeds and good sport is anticipated
among horsemen.
The ball will be a fitting climax to the
day's sport. 'Ladies bow; gents bowwow ; swing 'em as hard as ye can !'
On behalf of Publicity Committee Star
thanks the Hedley Gazette and the Oroville Gazette for their boostful references
to our celebration. Brethren, your compliments are fully appreciated.
The excursion train will arrive at one
o'clock and will be held over until the
evening, the time of departure being
yet unfixed by railway officials.
When a bachelor rents a family house
and furnishes it, what is the inference ?
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Need of Convenient Court Sittings—Improving Roads
Makes Good.
Crops Promise Abundant Yield and
j Hodge' is Happy—Stock Lakes
With Fish.
Hear 'em Sing—The cool and balmy
days are grand, and now with titeless
skill, the 'skeeto levies tribute and, presents his bloody bill.
Gordon Murdock has finished the road
along tHe Tulameen river as far as the
proposed waterwork5ToT"Ttre V.F.M. Co.
This road will, no doubt, be extended to
the ranchers beyond, affording not only
a very pleasant river drive but a convenient means of traffic.
The regnlar meeting of the board of
trade will be held next Monday evening
at 8.
A fire was discovered in Welldo on
Sunday last which, though not endangering the principal building there,
threatened to destroy valnable timber.
Warden Coulthard has gone to the scene
and upon investigation will have the
lawbreakers punished. An outbreak of
fire during the dry season is a heavy expense on the government to control, besides the great loss of timber and the
danger to life and homes. An example
should be made of offenders.
The road improvements going on under
supervision of /%:—Muidcck__and H.
TJiomas-are well advanced and ereditable
to the government and all concerned.
With all the road construction in this
vicinity and consequent employment of
a large number of men, and no election
in sight, Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., shows a
real desire to forward the interests of his
constituents;
The latesi subscription to the hospital
fund was received too late to be put
under the regular head and is from W.
C. McDougall, $15.
Billy Knight came down from Whip-
saw camp yesterday, it being his first
holiday since last New Year. The tunnel on the Lucky Pair is now driven
about 200 feet. It is hard going, but the
indications are favorable for striking the
lead anywhere in the next 25 or 30 feet.
Knight & Day are undaunted in their
labors, and no doubt their fondest hopes
will soon be realized.
Miss Hill has opened millinery and
dressmaking parlors on the second flat of
the Howse Co's block, Bridge street,
where she may be professionally consulted. Coming from such centers of
fashion as Paris and London Miss Hill
is a modiste of  exceptional   qualifica
tions, which the ladies of Princeton and
district are sure to appreciate.
Dr. Blair, of Spokane, Wash., was in
town Thursday, and was pleased with
the evidences of progress. He is largely
interested in mining here.
Groffman & Rose have concluded the
sale of the Piggott ranch' on One-Mile to
Dr. Robert McCafferv of Chilliwack.
The same firm recently sold also Lot 5,
Block 22, Princeton townsite.
POLICE PROTECTION WANTED.
A fight on the Bank of Commerce corner yesterday drew a crowd of eager
onlookers. The mill, while it lasted,
was fast and furious, and but for the
timely intervention of Magistrate Waterman the_garmerits^of the combatants
would not Vie sufficient to make a shroud)
for a dead crow. If men must fight why
not choose some place where ladies and
children cannot observe it ? There igno
proper police protection in Princeton and
respectable citizens are tired ot~asking
'Who is responsible ?'
FIAT JTJSTITIA.
The necessity for quarterly sittings of
the county court and the expense in
attending the assizes at Kamloops are
matters of grievance which should be
remedied as soon as possible. The Similkameen district is important enough
now to have more convenient and less
expensive justice dispensed. Moreover,
many people suffer wrong and injustice
knowing the tardiness and expense in
reaching the proper court. Could the
board of trade do anything to solve the
difficulty ?
COAL IS GOOD FOR RAILWAY.^
One important reason why Princeton
coal will be. generally used on railways
and especially on passenger trains is
owing to its clean and almost smokeless
qualities. Riding behind a locomotive
consuming dirty coal a passenger soon
becomes grimy and takes on the complexion of a stoker in hades. This filthy and
unhealthy condition can be obviated by
burning Princeton coal, high in thermal
qualities, low in refuse.
PROMOTED AND REMEMBERED.
Constable Hewat and family left on
Satunfay last, tnr Fairvirw where they
will in future reside, owing to his appointment as mining recorder and deputy
assessor for that district, duties to begin
from 1st July. Mr. Hewat has been constable here for five years.^during which
time he has been prominent in church
work and a respected citizen, this being
recognized by the presentation of a case
of solid silver knives and forks by friends
here. The good wishes of the community follow Mr. and Mrs. Hewat and children to their new home in the peach
belt.   -

DOMINION DAY.
Friday next, July 1st, is the day
we celebrate. By tacit consent of
sister towns throughout the Similkameen Dominion Day is conceded
to Princeton as a sort of birthright,
the custom being to unite with it
in loyal celebration of the day.
This year the railroad, lacking in
former years, affords easy access
for all in tbe southeastern parts of
the yalley and also our good neighbors in the state of Washington.
All things considered, there is every
indication of a most successful celebration. It will be a pleasure, no
doubt, for every citizen to constitute himself or herself a committee
of one to welcome visitors and in
every possible way help the Various
committees and celebration officials
in the discharge of their onerous
duties.
When the 'first Dominion Day
was celebrated in Canada forty two
,ypars ago, there was a population
of little over three millions of people and the increase for many years
was trifling, the. young men and
"'thousands of families being attracted
to the United States by the wonderful expansion and development
of the states west of the Mississippi
river. Now, the tide of immigration is rolling back into our last
and best west and what was a few
years ago a great lone land is now
, alive with the greatest trek of humanity ever known. The census
to be taken next year is expected to
reach seven and a half millions,
which, at the present rate of increase may easily reach fifteen millions of people in the next ten
years. If the ratio of ir.c ease be
maintained for another twenty-five
years there will be a population of
fifty millions, which, owing to climatic conditions, will be the hardiest
and brainiest of races.
The Dominion opens its gates to
all nations and peoples, giving to
all desirable immigrants . a free
homestead and the rights of citizenship in the best governed and
freeest country in the world. Not
yet more than one per cent, of the
available wheat lands under cultivation and a vast unknown hinterland stretching out into Arctic seas
to the very pole itself, give one a
faint idea of the room for innumerable millions yet to come and make
homes in this western Canaan.
The problem of assimilating and
Canadianizing the white and swarthy foreign races which come to tbe
great west has already been solved.
Canadian ideals of education, progress, government, socialism, civil
and religious liberty have leavened
the whole lump and a new nation
is about to take its place among the
others of earth.
And while every Canadian is
proud of his national birthday
he nevertheless looks forward to
that greater day when the present
system of disjointed empire will
give place to one solid and united
Anglo-Saxondom, with one imperiai
or central government, welding the
whole into a grand, world embracing confederation. Our American
cousins are included in this proposition, thus solving the question of
universal peace and possibly of
universal free trade. In working
out this destiny the colonies must
each do their part without hampering suggestions from any source
and if they want a homemade navy
it is their business, since they pay
for it. It remains for some broad-
minded Beaconsfield, Dincoin, Laurier, Roosevelt or the late Goldwin
Smith to work out this great problem of the unification of the now'
scattered Anglo-Saxon race.
Every loyal son and daughter of
the Empire as well as intelligent alien citizeus within our borders will join in due observance of
Dominion Day and an earnest 'God
Save the King.'
