THE BOARD OF TRADE
Communications from M. P's
re Duty on Coal—More
Pamphlets Wanted.
Eoard Endorses Petition of ' Col.' Stevenson and Others re Road via
Summit Camp.
' The Board of Trade held its regular
meeting Monday evening, Piesident Mc
Dougall in the chair. The minutes being
read and adopted communications were
received as follows :
From Department of Interior. Emigration Branch, London, Eng., acknowledging receipt of 20 copies of .B. of T. pamphlet advertising Princeton and district.
The letter is signed by the Assistant Superintendent of Emigration who, among
other things, says 'we can make good use
of any number of similar pamphlets
which you may .send.'
From Martin Burrell, M.P., acknowledging receipt of resolution by Board
re abolition of duly on coal. . ' The matter shall receive my early attention and I
will endeavor to ascertain what the feeling of the Government is on this question and see what can be done in regard
to advancing your interests,' the concluding remarks of Mr. Burrell's letter.
From Ralph Smith, M.P.: 'I received
the resolution re duty on coal passed by
Board and can assure y&.u that I will do
my best to support vour proposal. I am
in entire accord with the views expressed
in resolution.'
From the Similkameen Farmers Exchange invitiug Princeton Board to cooperate with them in sending exhibits to
the A.-Y.-P. The Board having already
made other arrangements the invitation
was respectfully declined.
A resolution was passed unanimously
endorsing the petition of 'Col.' Stevenson and many others for a road across
Hope mountains via Summit Camp and
the Tulameen river to its intersection
with the trunk road at Otter Flat, copies
of which to be sent to Commissioner of
Works, L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., and the
'Colonel.'
The time for receiving mineral exhibits
foi the A.-Y. P. was extended to May 1
Board adjourned:
OUR NEIGHBOR PROVINCE.
Sam Gibson, as a result of his observations in a recent visit to Alberta, thinks
the whole Similkameen should be better
advertised. Few people that he met had
any idea where this country was located
or dreamed of its vast mineral wealth.
In view of Mr. Gibson's statement, corroborated by the evidence of other facts,
the urgency of a campaign of publicity
is apparent.   He speaks  very highly of
the progressive spirit of the Albertans
Wherever he went the conversation invariably hinged upon railways. In the
legislature he listend to an informing debate on railwa>s. The government decided to guarantee bonds on 1,781 miles
of railway, all within the province. Mr
Gibson experienced 61 deg. below zero
over there, and yet it is the greatest grain
growing country in the world. Edmonton, which 25 years ago was only a collection of teepees and a H.B. Co.'s fort,
is today one of the most modern cities to
;be found anywhere. He thinks the Similkameen equal to the best in resources
NEW BUSINESS.
F. Pyman, watchmaker, jeweller and
optician, arrived Friday last from End-
etby, and will open up business in the
Star building. His attention was drawn
toward Princeton by the reports of its
coal and other mineral resources and the
ipproach of the V.,V. & E. railway.
Having an opportunity to sell out he at
once determined to come here. Mr. Pyman is originallv from Belleville, Ont.,
but has spent many years in the west
much of which was right on the frontier,
in mining camps and prairie boom towns.
He comes from Enderby with eulogistic
addresses from the Public School Board
and the Sunday School, aud is a prominent Freemason.
MINING JOURNAL.
The Star is in receipt of a new and
welcojie exchange, the Copper Curb and
Mining Outlook, which, as its name implies, is devoted to Copper and other
mining news. Office is 24 Broad St., New
York. The engagement of J. T.Jenkins as
head of this New York paper clearly establishes the publishers' sincerity in declaring that their policy is to make the
paper the leading authority in the mining world. Mr. Jenkins has well earned
his raputation as one of the few writers
in this qranch of journalism whose filter?
ances are regarded as practically official.
The newspaper with which he has now
allied himself was started as a small but
newsy circular, issued for the information of the customers of the brokerage
house of O. F. Jonasson & Co , of New
York, but it was conducted with such enterprise and so utterly without partisanship that it out grew its early envoirment.
The Outlook now maintains a staff of
special correspondents in every American, Mexican and Canadian mineral district, all sending in the latest obtainable
information through the mails as well as
by wire. It has grown to be a paper of
thirty-two pages, sometimes profusely ill
ustrated and always striving to give the
rr.ost accurate and recent news of the
mining sphere. It boosts no particular
section, camp or propertv, but is strictly
a disseminator of facts of interest to investors and others watchful of the development of the greatest of American industries.
VOLUNTEER FIREMEN
Useful Hints on Maintenance
and Formation of a
^;f Fire Brigade.
Fire Chief Urges Due Recognition of
Volunteers' Services; No
Poll Tax.
The following synopsis of a paper read
before a convention of Fire Chiefs by one
who was chief of a volunteer fire brigade
will probably be interesting and instructive to many Princetonians ' who aim to
have ample fire protection :
" In the smaller cities and towns it is
not possible to pa}- men to extinguish
fires. We organize to protect one another, and the corporation of the place
generalh- pays for the equipment. As a
rule it is not the property owners who
turn out to fight a fire ; but, we secure a
force of men who take hold and interest
themselves in the fire department, regardless of the time lost or the clothing
destroyed. The only real benefit derived
is exemption from jury duty and, perhaps, road tax or pull tax.
It is always a hard task, and some
iimes a very unthankful one, to organize
and keep together a volunteer fire.department. Where we have more than
ond company there is a certain rivalry,
which makes the members quick to respond to a fire alarm ; but'where there is
but one company the head of the department is held responsible for almost anything: He must inspect and care for the
apparatus, and induce members to take
an interest in something which a major
ity of them are not concerned in. The
fire alarriyirouses everyone, and we always fihdjsiiough people to take the apparatus to the fire ; but when it comes to
handling hose and ladders systematically
only the firjemeu who attend drills know
anything about it. During recent years
a number of'British Columbia cities paid
their firemen, some having two full-sized
fire departments, and some a part-paid
system. Where we still have volunteers
it would be proper for every owner of
burnable property to have his name on
the roll and contribute to their support.
A good plan for having the firemen handy
is to set aside a room or rooms, as the
case maK be, in the firehall, which should
be give rent free to the members of the
department.
Another great question with a volunteer fire department is discipline. When
the members elect officers they should do
everything in their power to aid them.
Take a lot of men at a fire, and when
one of them acts independently, more
damage is done than if they had stayed
away altogether. The reason why cities
with paid firemen, require but few men,
is because they are trained and are un-
per the strictest discipline. It would also be well foi insurance companies, as
well as property owners, to recognize the
firemen when they do good work at a
fire. When the firemen give an entertainment they should be patronized by
every loyal citizen. It is not known by
those in cities and towns where we hav»
volunteer fire departments, that the saying ranges from $4000 to $5000 annually.
What we do voluntarily the other
places must pay for. We do not content that a  volunteer fire  department is

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
C. L. Cummings is closing his blacksmith shop at Keremeos and moving with
his family to Princeton.
Garrison & Broom field are hauling two
large steam boilers from Fairview for use
in the new sawmill of the Similkameen
Lumber Co.
Trapper Leavitt came in Monday from
his line in the Roche River section,
bringing with him a fine bunch of fur,
consisting of 16 lynx, 2 foxes, 1 coyote
and 2 fisher. This fur is all prime and
high priced. Mr. Leavitt has long since
passed the 'prentice stage of his profiesh
besides his strings of -pelts prove him no
amateur. He reports 4 ft. 2 ins. of snow
at Cambie Creek ; 3 ft. at Three Forks ;
2 ft. 3 ins. at the mouth of Roche River ;
2 ft. 6 ins. at Sunday Creek ; 2 ft. at
Whipsaw.
Spring, gentle Spring! Now is the
croak of the bull frog and the caw of the
crow due throughout the land.
Every day sees the roadbed lengthening toward the Similkameen bridge.
Some 35,000 yards of earth are to be removed from the cut west of the Indian
reserve, all of which will be required for
the grade to the bridge.
That J. O. Coulthard is a lover of music
the violin, mandolin, guitar, piano and
even his clock, abundantly testify. To
these he has recently added a fine Conn
cornet and the latest improved Edison
Home phonograph. Surrounded by these
musical instruments life must surely be
one continuous symphony. Mr. and
Mrs. Coulthard are in no wise parsimonious of their talents, their musicales being
much enjoyed.
B. Stone Kennedy, erstwhile editor of
this great weekly luminant, has 'struck
ile' in real estate at the coast. Editors
deserve to strike something after serving
a term on a frontier newspaper. Stay
with it B. and leave a pile to the younger
B's when the old B. crosses the dark
river.
Keremeos Centre is about to have a
town hall 40x50 feet with a stage 40x20.
It is intended to open it with a grand

SAMPLES FOR EXPOSITION.
TheFTts really no time to spare
in^wbicJb, to collect mineral samples
foe.the Alaska-Yukoii-Pacific Exposition at Seattle. If everything
is put off to the last month, then
some important matter will be overlooked, some mining section neglected or some natural resource unrepresented. Members of the committee appointed by the Board of
Trade are earnestly striving to have
the best exhibit possible and are
endeavoring to persuade everyone
of the necessity for a most comprehensive display. Failure or success of the collection of exhibits
of Princeton and district will depend entirely upon the cooperation
of every individual miner, prospector, claim owner, and every person
having now, or prospective, invested
interests in this section. At present some claims are inaccessible on
account of snow but every day now
is lessening this difficulty. There
are others quite handy, the samples
from which could be delivered at
any time. Those owners of claims
Ujying on the outside should lose
no time in making arrangements
to have samples procured from their
properties. Who will be first to
leave samples with the Secretary of
the Board of Trade at Bank Commerce ?
UNIVERSITY AND MINING
SCHOOL.
Editor Star — Sir : Where
should the Provincial University,
with the mining school that must
soon be added to it, be placed ?
The experience of many universities shows that it should not be in
or near a large city, because of the
bad effects of city life on boys who
think they are men, and who are
not under any control at all, out of
class hours. Too many bright
young students succumb every year
to temptations to which no boy
ought to be expoed, but which can
not be escaped in any large city.
There are excellent mining schools
in Canada, particularly at McGill
and Kingston, but none of them are
near any mines. They have very
expensive experimental equipment,
but all the ores they use it on have
to be brought hundreds of miles—
most of them from British Columbia.
A school of mines without any
mines near it is like an agricultural
college without a farm, and the idea
of having one anywhere   in   the
Coast region, when it could be put
right up here among the mines, is
too absurd to need discussion.
The city of Nelson is sending a
deputation to Victoria, to push its
claims as a university stte. With
all due respect to Nelson, it is too
large, and possibly too 'wide open'
for a university town. Besides,
though it has mines, it has not anything like the variety of minerals
that Princeton can boast. Nowhere else in the province can you
study coal, copper, lead, quartz
and placer gold, platinum and mer-!
cury in place. Besides there can
be no doubt that in a [few years a
smelter will be built near here.
With these advantages students at
Princeton could get for nothing
practical experience that costs the!
supporters of McGill many thous-»
ands of dollars to imitate. j
Princeton may possibly not be
the]Jrichest mineral region of the)
province, but certainly it has more!
kinds of minerals than any other i
district, and so is the best for stud-(
ents. Skiddoo.    I
after thirty years of, age. It is the duty
of the government to abate all evils.
As to the manner of doing it it will ever
be matter of contention, but it must be
done. First, find out the cause of the
evil, then remove it.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Mexicans find Canadian
wheat much better than the Kansas product. They know a good
thing when they see it. There is a
lot of land around Princeton that
could by irrigation or 'dry farming'
grow wheat for Mexico. The cost
of raising the wheat might be greater here than in Alberta, but the
much cheaper freight rate via Vancouver would make up for that.
Hon. R. G Tatlow says he hopes that
the goveanment will be able next session
to make a further reduction in the direct
taxation, which includes the revenue,income, snd personal property taxes. This
statement will be heartily welcomed by
the taxpayers of this province. The absurdity of British Columbians, with the
richest natural resources in Canada, paying more direct taxes than any other Canadians, cannot be ended too soon.

"Local option " is tht question of the
hour throughout this and other lands.'
It is a question which in one form or another has been the subject of controversy
for centuries, probably since the first re-
coided instance of drunkenness, that of
the intemperate Noah. As long as sin is
in the world there will be intemperance!
—the glutton, drunkard, sensualist and
the cigarette, hypo, and dope fiends.
Even temperance people in their advocacy of the cause are very iutemperate.
They are often lopsided, talking and acting as if they were drunken. Many of
them have never tasted grog, know nothing of its effects personally, inwardly?
yet speak with all the positiveness of one
having experience. This misguided zeal
is ridiculed by the tipplers and moderate drinkers who might otherwise be influenced by sound reasoning. 'Be temperate in all things' is good doctrine and
worthy of all acceptance and cannot be
improved on by temperance extremists
and their followers. That drink is a
curse no one knows belter than the
drunkard. Without doubt it is the great
est evil of the a^e, bringing mountains of
misery in its train and whisking away
to an early eternity many of our Jjright-r
est young men—few drunkards are made

LIVE GAME AT BIG FAIR.
One of the big attractions On the Pay
Streak at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition will be the Weshington State Live
Game Exhibit.
Five acres of virgin forest have been
set aside for this purpose, where the pat-
rohs b"fthe Exposition will have the opportunity of seeing the rarest collection of
game animals eyer exhibited in the Unit
ed States'.'
Every animal will be cataloged with
the owner's name and address, giving
those who Wish to dispose of their animals an opportunity to place them with an
exhibit that will be seen by thousands of
visitors.
Mr. Arthur Dexter, the Assistant Director of this Department, states that a
large number of animals from Alaska,
including two cub. bears from Kadiak'Is-"

of iron in Sweden, where it is a commercial success. He believes this process
will be of the greatest importance to Canada in view of the enormots deposits of

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
THE PASSING MOMENT.
The meeting of the world's parliamentary congress at Ottawa in August will
be a notable event for Canada. One of
the features of this gathering will be a
tour of the Dominion. It is to be hoped
that the proper steps will be taken to
have the Similkameen valley included in
the trip, iustead of being side-tracked, as
so often happens in affairs of this kind.
That the C.P.R. is in earnest in the
matter of making Vancouver a grain
shipping port is shown by its announce -
ment that it is ready to start building
grain elevators there. 'Uncle Jim* will
no doubt do the same when his line is
complete from Winnipeg to the coast.
Hauling grain over the Coast Mountains
will take a lot of Princeton coal.
Two hundred and seventy letters registered in Canadian postoffices and cont
aining sums of money in various amounts
up to $5,000 did not reach their destination during the fiscal year 1908, according to official reports. Besides this 1,009
letters which contained money, but
which were not registered, also failed to
get to the parties to whom they were addressed.
