 Development of Princeton includS||ipme_ter nearby.
Think no evil, then actions will be right, bearing lovely fruit.
Construction of the B.C. Portland Cement  works in fall swing,—Coalmont, with its immense deposits of coking coal, is a town of
great possibilities—Hedley, world-renowned for gold, and Keremeos unexcelled for fruit, the Similkameen is indeed a land of plenty.

THE BOARD OF TRADE
Maps   Showing Country and
Trail to Steamboat
in Demand.
Heed of Customs Sub Port of Entry as
at Hedley Again. Emphasized
—Board Eulogized.
The regular meeting of the board of
trade was held last Monday night in the
court house. Communications were read
from the Hon. Frank Oliver, minister of
the interior, re land in the railway help
Several letters were received asking for'
maps, information about the district, etc.,
all of which were replied to by the secretary. Oa request of Great Northern
Passenger Agent at Seattle ago maps of
Steamboat and trail to it were sent him.
Accounts: For printing maps, advertising and descriptive letterpress, $15 ;
Heaton's Agency, .32 ; Similkameen Star,
printing, $2.75 ; A. E. Howse Co., gasoline, $2 50 ; all accounts ordered paid.
Board's Big Boost.
The board expressed regret at the departure of Vice-President Murdock and
Secretary Groffman, both valued and reg
ular attendants. The secretary made
use of the opportunity to remark that
he knew of no institution which offered
tlje helpful advantages for progress that
the board did and all that Princeton and
district had received in public improvements and expenditures for the general
good could be traced to its origin in the
board of trade. It was deserving of
much better support than it was receiving at present.
K. C._Brown was unanimously elected
secretary for remainder of term.
The board was pleased to informally
discuss the celebration of King George's
birthday ou Friday, June 2nd, members,
expressing loyal sentiments and recommending to citizens generally early consideration of the proposal.
Two New Members.
On motion C. V. Semerad and P.JJL
Gregory Ns^ere elected membe'rs~of the
board.
President Lumsden reported having
pressed upon M. J. Costello, Great Northern official, the necessity for a telephone at the railway station. He was
informed that the phone\ could be installed thefOTOr"^ the convenience of the
public on condition that the apmpany be
at no expense in connection therewith.
The board entrusted the m_tter with the
President who will endeavor to arrange
for this great convenience and economizer
of time and patience.
Consideration of the well nigh intolerable nuisance resulting from delay and
inconvenience caused by the absence of
a customs sub port of/entry in Princeton
was again before~-Hfe board with an instance cited. **
While unpledged to any definite action
and being somewhat outside of its sphere
of usefulness, the board fully recognized
the importance of a citizens' brass band.
It was generally conceded that a band
would give tone to the town and prove a
great attraction^. O__j£^_>-u-- 1^.-
Owing to the small attemJSnce, seven
members, a resolution favoring reciprocity with the United States was not put.
Board adjourned.
HEAVY COSTS AGAINST'SUNSET
Judgment was handed dowjii-n the Supreme Court yesterday afternoon giving
;costs against the defendants in the recent
libel action brought.ags_nst Messrs.Ford
& McConnell, proprietors and publishers
of the Vancouyer~Saturday Sunset by
J. S. Emerson.
This case it will be remembered was
heard in the Supreme_J__»t_rt about two
weeks ago before Mr. Justice Gregory
and a special jury, and judgment render
ed for the plaintiff, awarding him five
cents in lieu_ofthe^conte^ptai___jimages
The___ion brought by Mr. Emmerson
was on au article that appeared in the
Saturday Sunset criticizing in very strong
terms the erection of a high board fence
on one side of Mr. EmerSOn^S property
orfthe corner oT Davie _a_d rar_. r_
streets. While the damages were infinit-
esmal the cost will_a mount to $1,000 or
so—Province. —

PRINCETON BRASS BAND.
Editor Star.—Sir: If rurndrs prove
true, the people of Princeton^will soon
be ableVo^ft on their v. ranrlaa and listen
to the music of the band. For the past
three years Princeton has possed sufficient
musical talent to organize a band but not
until the arrival of H. Rainbow from
Greenwood a month ago~___ any Interest
beTntakefTTnu. Mj\ Rainbow, who is
an experienced bandsman, and player on
drums and clarinet, has already induced
some of theboys to send for an instrument. Len Huston shonld soon learn the
clarineff Geddes Lyall with an alto, and
wlien Charlie Semerad blows into a double
B Bass stand clear of the bell end.
Tohn Knudson has volunteered to beat
the drums. Eric Anderson should master
the eiyjhonium quickly. Ralph Murdock prefers tenor while Melville Waddell
goes down to Tuba. There is yet a number to be consulted. The experienced
talent available are Billy Knight who can
cut the air with a piccolo, Oswald Coulthard, an experienced bandsman, ist cornet?- Sam Gibson, also an experienced
bandsman, and solo cornetist. John
Nathan, B flat cJaitQgt- With proper organization and training this combined
talent should in a few months play any
popular music.       Yours truly,
Musicai, Observer.
Princeton, B. C, May 2nd. 1911.
[Music is an indispensable feature of
the age. In one form or another it is
found at every turn and all admit the
pleasure it affords. As there is talent in
Princeton it would be unworthy of citi
zens to neglect support of the proposed
brass band. About $200 will be required
to put the band on a playing basis. As
they say in Rome : 'Bis dat qui cito dat'
—he that gives promptly gives-
twice.—Ed.1

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The China'^Famine Relief Committee, of which the Governor-
General is patron, has addressed a
circular to editors throughout the
Dominion asking their cooperation
in an appeal for help for the famine
stricken provinces of Anhui and
Kiangsu where nearly three million
people are perishing. One Dollar
and Fifty Cents will Save a Human
Iyife ! The next crop will not be
available for these dying Chinese
before the ist of July, the last crop
having been destroyed by flood.
Believing in that charity which
knows no difference between the
white and colored races and recognizing the brotherhood of all mankind many will gladly give to allay
that mighty wail of suffering coming from China. Chinamen have
already contributed liberally from
Princeton and small amounts from
whites were sent to Vancouver but
the present one is a national appeal
to raise one hundred thousand dollars. Money may be sent direct to
the Treasurer, S. J. Moore, 445
King St, W., Toronto, or if sent
through the Star will be acknowledged in its columns.
The enemies of progress and reciprocity are saying 'let well enough
alone, Canada is prosperous now.'
A good business man will not content himself with staying in a rut
but is ever on the alert to expand
_iis trade. He knows that trade
begets trade and the more and freer
outlets there are correspondingly
will be the increase of revenue and
profits. Free trade courts competition and glories in the survival of
only those who are worthy and fit.
Protection pampers the few to the
hurt of the many ; it makes a few
wealthy monopolists at the expense
of the consumers and it destroys the
liberty of the subject to buy in the
cheapest market. If Canadians are
not competent to compete with the
world protection will never make
them able. World wide free trade
is a little in advance of the times, it
may be, but it must come if the
leading English speaking nations
adopt it.
Russia is the home of despotism
and Italy gave birth to the black-
handers. British Columbians have
always taken a worthy pride in
giving every man a 'square deal'
and anything that savors of despot
ism or black hand methods is not
.tolerated.   One" of the dangers of
large majorities in legislatures is
the tendency to domineer and set
up lordly authorityfby some unbalanced minister. Nothing in
social or political life, coiild be more
distasteful than the^SeTt importance
of some upstart, who lacking the
characteristics of a gentleman, seeks
to stamp his presence on all with
whom he comes in t°uch. Tyr-
rany belongs to the dark ages. In
this province no man can be condemned unheard and no man can
be dismissed from the public service on the sayso of any accuser
without the opportunity of defence.
That is fair play and justice.
Here is a sample of some of the
vicious things printed by editors
who are weak mentally and morally : 'Telling the truth is not always wise. Those who adhere to
this policy invariably die in the
poor house.' As it prosperity were
contingent on lying and that truth
telling tended to poverty. This is
depravity with a vengeance and is
enough to cause the blush of shame
on all truth loving persons for the
man who could write such stuff.
What of the many prosperous business concerns whose owners are the
embodiment of truth, honor and
uprightness, and' who are the respected of any community or nation, the liars or-the truth tellers ?
Spring with all its rejuvenating
and quickening influences is here—
Princeton is growing naturally and
healthy.'.W
