MISSED HOLES IN MINING.
Accidents, their Cause  and How to;
be Averted.
To the Editor of the Star,—Sir: To
.make tny remedy plain, I must first ex
plain as briefly as possible the cause of a
vast number of these accidents. As
t ight hours constitute a day's \ ork in a
mine most mining is now carried on by
three eight hour shifts. Suppose then,
f>r instance, three eight hour shifts are
working in a tunnel, One of them go
to work at their regular time and find
the tunnel clear. Tney set up the
machine and commence drilling. During their shift of eight hours they dril
seven holes. Bear in mind these holes
aie not charged and fired by the men
who drilled them The second shift ar:
rives and teheves the first. On. examination the* decide it will take six more
holes to complete what is known as a
full round, j The machine being already
set up they are able during their shift of
eight hours to drill these six holes and
blast. They not only charge and fire the
six holes they themselves have drilled,
but the seven also which the previous
shift drilled. Before charging the holes
they place tbe lamping rod in each hole
to find the depth and, angle they are
drilled iu order to decide how much
powder each hole requires. You plainly
see these two men are the only persons
who know the exact location of each
hole, its depth, the amount of powder in
each and tbe amount < f tamping placed
on top of the powder. Suppose on
blasting, one of the holes miss fire. Admit this shift complies with the law (and
regulations of the company) by leaving
notice in the proper place of a missed
hole in a certain tunnel. If thev meet
Ihe third shift coming to work their only
salute is "Look out for a missed hole."
I grant the third shift is fully aware of
a missed bole in the tunnel in which
they are working. As they drilled none
of the holes they have but a faint idea of
the locationv6r angle of either, and are
absolutely ignorant of the amount of
powder and tamping used. They also
realize the company cannot affbrt to pay
them for searching for missed holes, so
ofien commence work be ore a diligent
search has been made "with fatal results."
Had the second shift been forced to re
main (knowing every hole in detail)
would in all probability prove the location of the missed hole in a few minutes
thereby saving the lives ..f the third
shift. My remedy then is this: The
only persons allowed by law to search
for missed holes shall be those who
charged and fired the same. This would
force every miner, for his own protection, to use every precaution in charging
holes whereas at present some are careless knowing that they do .not have to
search them up. I believe this remedy,
if properly enforced, will reduce these
accidents  to the  least   possible  number
until some scientist dicovers a safer explosive o: a different method of excavating rock.        PRACTICAL   MINER.
[The letter of " Practical Miner " will
be read with interest by all who would be
glad to see an abatement of the terrible
toll of life resulting from missed holes
and other causes in mines. The Star
willingly offers space to practical miners
or aiiyo'ne having remedial suggestions to
mike in further discussion of the subject.—Ep.]
OEANGE INSTALLATION.
J. W. Whitely, of Vancouver,, provincial organizer of the Orange Association,
organized a Royal Scarlet Chapter with a
charter membership of 25, on the 9th
inst. Following is a list of officers elected for the ensuing year: W. C. in C.

Perley Russ^ik/5nd Con., H. H. Avery,
Jr.; InwyHei-VW. W. Martin; Out. Her.,
Chas. Byrd.
On Saturday evening three new members added to the roll. On Sunday evening the members to tbe number of forty
attended services in the Presbyterian
church and lisiened to an interesting and
instructive sermon by J. R Craig, from
the text, "Render therefore unto Caetar
the things that are Caeser's, and unto
God the things that are God's." Mr.
Whitely also spoke briefly explaining
the principles for which the Orange As-
^01 ia'.ion stand. After marching back to
the hall, a hearty vote of thanks was extended to Rev. Bro Craig for the excell
ent address which he had given to the
brethern. On Tuesday evening a precep-
tory of the Royal Black Institution, of
Ireland was organized by Mr. Whiteley
with a charter membership of 28. The
officers elected for the ensuing year are
as follows: W. Preceptor, J. Knudson:
Dep. Preceptor, C. L. Cummings. Chap.
T. A. Osborne; Registrar, Perley Russell-

W. W. MarTfh', E. Henderson, R. Martin,
B. Barlow, E. Hembree and C. V. Semerad.
Through the organization ot the pre-
ceptory, an Orangeman can now obtain
the highest degree in connettion with
the Association without leaving the
valley. At the meeting on Saturday a
resolution was passed unanimously, expressing sympathy with the Protestants
of Ireland in their fight against home
rule, and-hoping they would be Success-
full in their effort to maintain civil and
religeous liberty and keep Ireland as a
part of the British Empire. Mr. White-
ley left on Wednesday's train for his
home in Vancouver.—Com.

ELECTIONS PREDICTED
There are rumors of a provincial
(general election but nothing authoritative has been pronounced by the
government. Come when it may
Similkameen is ready for the fray.
The Conservative party in this district has gained immensely in influence and popularity since the
last Provincial and Dominion elections. The sitting member in the
Provincial house, I,. W. Shatford,
has given such general satisfaction
to all that it would be folly to attempt his defeat at the polls and it
is not at all improbable he will be
returned by acclamation. In the
last election Mr. Elmhirst lost his
deposit and the Liberals were routed
so badly that there remains of them
now the merest fragment of a
frazzle. In the Dominion house
the   Hon. Martin   Burrell has   so
outshone all preceding members for
Yale-Cariboo that his party will
gain in strength and stability so
long as he represents this electoral
district. Premier McBride has
made decidedly good on the merits
of his past railway policy and his
present pronouncement in regard to
railways will still further increase
the general esteem and confidence
in which he is held. For all the
good the opposition, a Liberal and
two Socialists, are iu the assembly,
it would be at least economical to
return all the members by acclamation. In any case Premier McBride
can only add three more to his
majority in the house.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The British government has
promised a measure of woman enfranchisement and the Countess of
Warwick begins a campaign in the
United States and Canada in behalf
of woman suffrage. The rights of
our sisters and mothers are surely
about to be recognized.
The need of public buildings and
an improved postal service for
Princeton has been again brought
to the attention of the board of
trade. It was matters such as these
that turned the Princeton Liberal
majority in 1904 to a wizened
minority in each succeeding election
since. That ought to be warning
enough.
Wales and Scotland, like Ireland,
are now.asking for self-governmant.
The old land is awakening.
From a private source Star learns
that in the estimates to be brought
down today the Similkameen is well
provided for as in former years.
Premier McBride announced his
railway policy yesterday in the
house and it means much for
Princeton, as it does for the whole
country. The Kettle Valley rail
way receives a cash grant of $10^00
pet^mi-je_^nd_must--berrom^,eted by
1915*-—The route of the road is
definitely located up the Tulameen
to Coalmont, Tulameen, Aspen
Grove and Coldwater. The premier's policy will involve an expenditure of $40,000,000.

The Bias principle of construction is quite different
to the average, being boned
on the bias instead of straight
up and down like other
corsets. It is this difference
in the way they are made,
which makes them so strikingly easy and comfortable,
and those who have never
worn a Bias Filled have yet
to know what the right
corset will do for them. Its
bouings and clasps will not
rust, and the fabric will not
tear with the hardest and
most constant use. Every
yard of material is accurately tested for strength, and
everything about them is
guaranteed by the makers.

I    The Town of opportunity
The rails have been laid into the town and Coalmont is now the new
terminus, the base of operations for the next forty miles of railway
building.
Before six months have passed there should be a payroll in Coalmont of
between 350 and 400 men : This means population, which naturally
means good business.
IF YOU ARE WISE YOU will invest in a little Coalmont real estate
now while the choice is still good.
Don't let this opportunity slip along with the others which have got
past you. Write for our circular and price list ; a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

PROVIDE FOR OLD AGE.
"Asa man soweth so shall he reap;"
and youth is the time in which he must
do his sowing if the granary is not to be
empty when old age overtakes h m' as it
surely will if he lives long enough. The
making of money and the saving ot
money, as distinguished from the miserly
love of money, should be the ambition
of everyone; but it does not necessarily
follow.that if you make money that you
will have it in your old' age, as many a
one time millionaire has died in the poor
.house. But if you take advantage of the
Canadian Government Annuities system,
and out of your wages, salary or income
pay the amount fixed to be paid each
week, month or year, or as otherwise arranged, provision for old age may le
made with absolute certainty and at
much less cost than on any other safe
plan. You mav lose everything else you
own but the Annuity cannot be lost or
taken from you by any process of law, no
matter how lrng you may live. Ask
■your postmaster for literature ou the
subject, or write for the same to the
Superintendent of Annuities' Ottawa, to
whom all letters may be addressed free
of postage.

The Door of   Opportunity is
Wide Open.
The 'West* affords many examples of .fortunes
made from ground floor investments. Winnipeg1,
Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver had a similar
beginning to that of Princeton. Fortunes' have
been made in real estate from a very small investment. Princeton, which includes East Princeton,
has undoubtedly the best prospects of any town
on the map. Invest while the town is yet in its
infancy and see prices steadily rise.

According to the laws of industrial progress ahd the experience of founders of western towns,
there must be a tangible, genuine basis on which to establish the future tity. No amount of
coaxing can bring blood out of a stone, nor can the greatest scientist extract sunbeams from a
