HE PILOTS THE SKY.
Rev. G. R. B. Kinney, of the Hedley-
Keremeos Methodist circuit, is a visitor
to Princeton, forming new acquaintances
and renewing old. Mr. Kinney, besides
being a devoted and likable Christian
gentleman, has hobbies the same as other
mortals. One is to collect geological
curios, of which he has a large and interesting assemblage; the other is to
scale peaks. He is a sky pilot in a real
sense, having approached the heavens
nearer than  most people.   Mr. Kinney
son, (16,000 ft. ?) and has covered many
o.her peaks. Like the rest of us, he has
yet to climb Parnassus and woo the
m lses, but if he attempts it he will sure
',et there.' He is still a nice young
bachelor with a longing for home life.
OBITUABY.
The funeral of the late Mrs-Summers
was held yesterday, a large number of
friends attending at the house and joining in the cortege to the cemetery on the
hill. The deceased had been a long sufferer from cancer and the end was not
unexpected, coming at 6 o'clock Monday
mo mng. She was born in England 62
years ago and leaves two sons and three
daughters, who have the sincere sympathy of the whole commiinity. Deceased
wajofa lovable personality, endearing
herself to all acquainted with her during
her sojourn here.
6EEAT STORM ALL OVEE.
Stops Trains and Stages: Causes much
jit   Hardship and Delay.
TtteN ttage due from Nicola last Wednesday has been cancelled. It is extremely doubtful if the stage due today
will arrive on time
G. B^ Armstrong, the Merritt postmaster and general merchant, was in town
last week on a business visit, coming via
che Nicola trunk road. He had an adventurous trip, dne to the great storm of"
the 27th ult., antijvag fjyp dayg making a
journey whichusually occupies less than
two. When he left home there was no
sign of storm and mounted on a fine saddle horse the trip promised pleasure and
comfort. Not so, however, for the wind
arose, the snow fell. the trees cracked
and danger lurked at every curve and
declivity. Mr Armstrong reached Jack
Thynne's weary and worn toward midnight. The storm continued. Mr. Armstrong could neither advance nor retreat,
nor could he wire for assistance, the telephone line being buried and out of commission. He wrapped his feet in gunny-
sacks (improvised saowshoes) and started
for Princeton. The struggle of and for
his life then began. When he reached
Otter Flat he was 'all in.' The stage
brought him down and after the usual
inward remedies had been copiously
applied he was soon able to talk politics
and business.
The force and effect of the great storm
did not reach Princeton directly, but the
absence of mails for nearly a week told
only too well of damage and delay.
The Great Northern's western system
is seriously deranged by flood and storm.
The daily express to Princeton was cancelled last Saturday, but turned up on
Sunday with a big mail and a lot of passengers.
RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Good Progress Made All Along
the Line—Snow and Frost
to Combat.
Oroville-Penticton Line to Build and
C.P.R. Too—Tunnel will be
Rushed Ahead.
Railroad contractors are making good
progress with the preliminary work of
building camps and laying down supplies. Good roads have favored hauling
rails and equipment for construction.
There is snow all along the line, which
delays earth work, rock and tunnel contracts being least effected Once the
ground is in condition for pick and shovel
use 800 men will be employed on the 18
miles under contract.
Prsss statements, outside, have been
given currency to the effect that the 18
miles would be completed by July 1st..
Practical men do not give much credence
to this statement. It is known, however,
that the Great Northern is urging the
work along with all speed. The work is
heavy and difficult, with three or four
bridges and two tunnels. If the locomotive reaches Welldo station, 10 miles
west of Princeton, by the first of November, it will be good going.
Th«>following sub-coutractors are at
F. Wilson, 3 miles ; W: McPhee,
mile ; Jas. Welch, 3 miles ; Madden &
Hankinson, 4 miles. The remaining portion is soon to be sublet if not already
so
The Oroville-Penticton line is being
located-by Engineer Russell. This line
is^bout 40 miles in length, and it is said
will be built this year, as it is comparatively easy building.
In the two weeks that have passed
since the steam shovel_ began r>n jhr approach to the tunnel in the western suburbs of thefow2 a large amount of earth
has been removed, which is beiug used
to reclaim overflown ground. The tunnel proper is_i050 feet long and will take
at least four months to complete working full time from both ends.
It is a matter of general report that
the C.P.R. will begin construction over
Hope mountains, via Coquihalla pass,
this year. .-
WRITER IS BROAD-VIEWED.
Frank Bailey of Merritt recently published an informative letter in the Merritt Herald containing some kindly references to Princeton. Mr. Bailey is
broadminded enough to praise other
towns, although his interests are centred
more particularly in another section. It
is such generosity that counts in welding
the human family into a compact whole
instead of which one often sees the seeds
of strife and discord sown between towns I
and district. While it would not be cor-,
rect to describe Mr. Bailey as an evangelist yet he may be said to be a missionary spreading the gospel of good will
and harmonv.
JKEW PAPER AT MERRITT.
The Nicola Valley News, published at
Merritt, is the latest journalistic enterprise received and added to our exchange
list. It is Conservative in politics and
booster in principle. It looks healthy
and bids fair to stay. Two newspapers
m a town the size of Merritt must lead
to awful competition and we look forward
to a war of annihilation and the survival
of the fittest. Keep the hatchet well
buried, brethren, and elevate the flaming
torch of knowledge so that its light will
penetrate the darkest mind. The News
is neat in appearance and its matter well
chosen.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Weather Mild and Spring is Coming
with Old Crow.
By the terms of the railway bills introduced in the provincial legislature both
the Canadian Northern and Kettle Valley lines must make a good start this
year. The Kettle Valley will build 25.
miles.
A lot of local and mining matter is
crowded out of this week's issue.
Hugh Cowan returned from the coast
on Monday much improved in health.
Luke Gibson returned last Saturday
from the lower country, where he was
engaged with Russell's railway survey
party. Spring and the labor inseparable
from a farm at this season of the year
have caused his return. He reports little
snow around Osoyoos but considerable
zero weather. He beard the Princeton
coal highly recommended by consumers
at Oroville.
Greenwood will have a new public
building for postoffice and customs. The
location is on the site of the Pioneer
hotel, Government street and the total
cost will be about $20,000. The Liberal
association of Greenwood is at last rewarded for its agitation in this behalf. If
they had not asked, they would not have
received.
J. Peterson, of Grand Forks, is a visitor to Princeton.
At the Grand Lodge of the Orange
Association held in Kamloops recently a
political platform was adopted which
will be published soon. Rev. R. J. Mc-
Intyre is the new Grand Master and W.
Brett is the Grand Secretary. There are
2105 lodges of the order in Canada with
a membership of 700,000. • The total
membership for the. empire is over two

present conditions and future prospects. With the development contingent upon railway construction
and fulfilment of the policy of the

Finance Minister Bowser will have
another very encouraging statement
to make next year.
. THE ESTIMATES FOR 1910-11..
It will be a pleasure to.every taxpayer in the province, and to those
iu the Similkameen particularly, to
read the budget speech of the Hon.
W. J. Bowser, Minister of Finance.
It is evident that the Premier, instead of losing, has rather gained/
in the resignation of his former
finance minister. The minister was
not only able to present dry facts
in a lucid manner but he clothed
his figures with an eloquence which
smacked of the mighty Gladstone.
As a first effort in presenting a
budget Mr. Bowser has brought
credit to the McBride ministry and
fulfilled the high expectations of
his political friends. With so favorable a beginning there is the
happy augury of continuance and
of even still greater achievements
in -his direction of the financial
affairs of this great and growing
province.
Of course B.C. is now riding on
the crest of a wave of -prosperity
and progress in common with all
the western provinces. This is due
io the development of the west from
its raw state to the cultivated and
producing stage. Development of
a country is largely the result of a
-policy having origin with the government and endorsed by the people. Mr. Bowser was' enabled to
make a very favorable financial
statement by reason of the development of the country.
During the nir.e months from
June 30, 1908 to March 31, 1909,
the public debt has been reduced by
£932,310. The surplus of net receipts, over expenditures during the
same period has been $920,000, cr
if carried out proportionately for
the whole year would amount to
$1,230,000. A very noteworthy-
fact in connection with the estimates is the large increase in expenditure on public works. For
the Similkameen electoral district
some $20,000 in excess of last year's
appropriation will be expended.
None but the 'prejudiced, brain
warped political partizan will try to
to') Mr. Shatford of his full credit
fir having obtained the magnificent
sum stated. He has caused an outburst of applause from, not only
■ his supporters, but from others outside the pale of his party. 'Well
done, Shatford,' is the brief but
well deserved eulogium heard on
. every side.
lljjjS'Mr. Bowser has made a most
satisfactory   statement  both  as  to
APPROPRIATIONS NEEDED.
In the allocation of money for
roads and bridges due regard must
be given to the necessities of the
locality and the value to the community of the improvements contemplated. In the evolution of the
Similkameen, first, was the pack
trail and fords ; second, roads and
bridges ; third, the railway. Some
seven or eight roads and two or
three trails now lead to Princeton
from the various sections roundabout. All of these avenues of
communication need more or less
repairing In Princeton, where the
Ashnola wagon road and Hope trail
begin, there is urgent need for
grading and improving this highway from its intersection witb
the Copper mountain road. In the
spring it is almost impassable with
mud and mire and in the summer
it is a miniature Sahara from which
rise great volumes of dust to envelop passers by and the houses in
their path. Whoever the government road superintendent maybe
this year he will have this matter to
report upon along with other detai'.s
ot improvements. As the town is
.unincorporated and still a ward of
the government it has a legitimate
right to a portion of the revenue
collected from it. The need ol
improvements will be felt more this
year than at any other period of its
existence, owing to the ,.general
progress and commercial expansion
consequent upon the arrival of the
railway. A boost from the government now will enable Miss Princeton to put ou airs of independence
all the sooner and thus relieve the
government of its further care.
Probably no division or section
of the Similkameen- riding contributes more revenue than that of
Princeton district. Approximately
some $20,000 are annually derived
from the timber, land, licenses,
taxes aud mineral resources. It is
no question for argument as to the
amount of money to be refunded in
appropriations. The broad principle has been established long ago
that a new. country is entitled to all
its revenue minus cost of government. Star now pleads earnestly
for recognition of this principle in
the appropriations to be made for
this, section. Roads are required
very much for Whipsaw, Friday
Creek, Roche River, North Fork
of Granite, Upper Tulameen, Summit and to the international boundary via the P. sayton river. As in
the past reliance is placed on the
good judgment of Mr. Shatford to
do the 'right thing' with each section.
