 Coal, Copper, Gold, Backbonej>f Princeton District.

Be careful to say nothing that may be the regret of a lifetime,-
In variety of resource, in climate and scene, in hunting and fishing, Princeton district cannot fee surpassed—V.,V. & E. railroad now
building on outskirts of town—Payroll must came with the operation of coai, iron, copoer and placer mines—140 miles to tidewater.

RAILROAD AND COAL
Surveyors at  Work on Line
to Join with V.,V. & E.
at Oroville.
Another  Large Field   in which
Market Our Coal—Duty
Will Go.
to
Sixteen surveyors arrived in Oroville
recently to survey the route between that
town and Wenatchee for the Great Northern Railway. This road when completed
will shorten the route from Princeton to
the coast and afford an alternative line to
ttie chief cities of Washington. It will
also allow Princeton a much wider field
in which to supply her excellent coal to
a people who have no choice at present
but a poor quality mined in the state or
imported from Washington. The principal demand for Princeton coal must
come, however, from B. C. coast cities
where a good domestic coal cannot be
had from the local product. When the
V.,V. & E. is built along its present
located line via the Tulameen then the
coal of this section will have unimpeded
outlet to all markets.
A despatch from Washington, D.C.,
s ij's that coal is almost certain' to be
placed on the free list. The agitation
begun by Princeton Board of Trade for
removal of coal duty is also bearing fruit
at Ottawa.
FIVEMILE. FODDER, jg
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
Neil Huston of Princeton and J. La-
plante of ColvHle, Wash., spent Sunday
at Grandview ranch. Mr. Laplante has
icturned for a short visit to Fivemile.
He has large "farming interests in this
section and predicts great prosperity for
the whole Similkameen this year. He
says this is the 'only' country. B
Mr. and Mrs. S. Gibson have returned
from a two months' visit to the Northwest.
A patty of Luke Gibson's friends surprised (?) him last Wednesday evening
and a good old-fashioned country dance
that you read about, took place. Mr.
Gibson's 'den' had been previously decorated with evergreens and after every
one 'thawed out,' from the long sleigh
ride, they were invited out and the fun
was fast and finious when Mr. Levallee
tuned his famous violin and started up
the music. T. King was prompter and
managed the affair with 'elegance and
grace' as well as dancing a Highland
fling occasionally. At 12 o'clock, while
ladies were preparing coffee Mr. Svkes
kindly volunteered to bring a pail of
water from the pump. He was given
minute directions to find the  pump but
instead he strayed into the blacksmith
shop and pumpe i the bellows some time
before he discovered his mistake. Peter
Swanson presided with dignity at the
festive board. Among the friends to
participate were : Mr. and Mrs. Swanson,
Mr. and Mrs. Huston, Mr. and Mrs
Sykes, Mr. and Mrs. Hughes, Mesdames
Cook and Bell, Misses Levallee, Biers,
and Gaetdier, Messrs. King, Vans, Levallee, W. Gibson, C. Summers, T. Levallee, D M. French.
MARRIED MAN'S BURDEN.
Editor Star—Sir : There is one class
of citizens that has never yet got justice
from the Laurier government, the Mc-
Bride government, or anv other. Yet
this class is the most valuable to the community—the heads of families. What
would be the good of mines with no one
to work them ? of governments, with
nobody to tax ? of schools and churches,
with nobody to attend them? The man
with a family provides the materiel for
these and hundreds of other enterprises:
and he gets for it, a great deal less than
nothing. The world will not even take
his product at cost: he is at continuous
expense and the chances are that he
never gets a cent back.
Perhaps 'two can live as cheaply as
one,' and perhaps not. Certainly four
or five can't. Bachelors, don't complain
of your school tax. It's the least you
can do toward ' helping in the development of your country. You ought to be
made to do ten times as much.
Yours truly,
'We are Seven.'
TOWN AND ©STRICT.
Dan Munro has the contract for removing the, diamond drill recently sold
by the Ashnola Coal Co. to Messrs. McMillan and Westcott of Vancouver, who
are here getting it ready for shipment.
It is understood that ths drill will be
used on Vancouver It land.
Now is the time to let the local member know the needs of this district. Any
section requiring roads or other improvements should make it known while the
representative is at the capital attending
to his public duties.
Dick Fitzgerald was at his mine on
Granite Creek the other day and found
his tunnel strewn with dead wood rats.
He tninks the cold snap did it. Blessing
on Jack Frost if he would only kill them
all and rid' the country of a horrible
nuisance. 'Fitz' expects to have some
fine samples of free milling ore with the
gold visible to the naked eye ready for
the A.-Y.-P.
The necessity for a mounted policeman
has been frequently urged in the interests of public peace and the capture of
mounted thieves in various parts of the
Similkameen. Stock owners are the
principal complainants. Mr. Shatford
will no doubt give this matter prompt
and serious consideration.
LOCAL AND (iENERAL
First Shipment of Tracklaying
Material is at Keremeos
Freight Yard.
Watchmaker and Lawyer have Good
Business Openings Here—The
A.-Y.-P. Show.
The first shipment of material for the
track west of here arrived on Tuesday
of last week and consisted of two' car
loads of angle bars and spikes from the
Hamilton Steel and Iron Co.—Keremeos
Trumpet.
There is a fine opening for a watchmaker in Princeton now that the town is
shortly to take on new and progressive
life.   Man with family preferred.
Stevens's telephone line repairers were
in town Sunday looking over the wire.
The exchange, over which there was
some talk and a few names signed to a
paper, has not yet materialized. It is
doubtful if it was seriously intended to
put in an exchange at all, for now the
Supe. is trving to wiggle out of it by
saying that the money is not available.
What is the'unpaid representative' doing
that Princeton should bt thus neglected ?
Anyway, the V..V. & E. telegraph and
telephone service will soon be here.
J. Caldwell, at one time foreman logger
here, died last Friday at Hedley.
The marriage of Robert Jameson to
May Smith was celebrated at the Rogers'
ranch, Fivemile, last Friday, Rev. Thurburn-Conn officiating.
The Executive Committee of the Board
of Trade met last Saturday to consider a
proposal of the Farmers' Institute at
Keremeos for a joint exhibition at the
great Seattle Exposition next June. The
Committee thanked the Institute and
declined the proposal on the ground that
plans for a mineral exhibit were about
matured.
C. Semerad, baker and confectioner,
will in a few days open a restaurant and
shop in Wardle & Thomas's building on
Bridge street.
S. Gibson and wife returned Monday
from a visit to relatives in Alberta. They
had a very enjoyable time but are glad
to be back in the sunny Similkameen
away from the home of Jack Frost.
Mr., Mrs. and Miss Thynne of Otter
Valley, have been on a visit this winter
to friends and relatives at Fort Pelly,
Saskatchewan.
Trapping may be termed a profession,
a science, if you will. A man must be
a close student of nature; keen in all his
senses and brave enough to tackle anything from a flea to a grizzly if he would
be a successful  trapper.    But amateurs
will undertake it sometimes with the
result that a 'bushy tail' or some other
harmless animal jumps into their ttrap-
and jumps out while the best method of
taking its life is being argufied. No
wonder the 'boys' came home without
any fur, except what they grew while-
away !
Word has been received from Jack
Macfarlane in Mexico, where he is expert for a large mining company. He
inquires about many old friends here and!
it is not unlikely that he will retrace his
steps this way next summer.
J. B. Wood is still bailiff for Sheriff
Wood and is proving a very capable
officer.
In connection with the escape of Bill'
Miner from New Westminster peniten -
tiary J. D. Taylor, M.P , will cause a
thoiough investigation to be made at
Ottawa a ad the guilty parties exposed,
all of- which will make interesting reading.
It is evident that lawyers are scarce iu
B.C. or one-would have located in Princeton long ago. There is a fine field here
for a young man to build up a large practice. He must be capable and public
spirited—of course he will be honest—
then he will make a barrel of money.
The largest copper mine, and in fact -
the largest'mine in the world, is the Calumet and Hecla, in the northern peninsula of Michigan. This property bas-

A blackbird with a white tail is said to
have been seen at Welldo recently and
the local weatherwise think it portends
an early spring.
Road and tie inspector, printer and
poet MacSwain is likely to blow into •
Princeton any day, some of his advance

When last seen he was in a swamp west

Peck, why don't you settle down and

NOW, THE BACHELORS?0
Everything that can be done has now -
passed the formative stage of the Bachelors' Ball.   The bachelors and their spin--
ster friends are enthusiastic in. their preparatory work.   They say it is to be the
equal,  if not surpass,   anything of the-
kind ever attempted here.   Up and down:
the valley and over the hills parties are
being formed for the occasion and as the
roads are in the finest condition there
will be many a jolly sleigh load in attendance Friday   night.     Manager Cowan
has got the I.O.O.F. hall in fine shape
for  those  who trip the light fantastic.
The supper, the music and the management, all assure a good time, and all as .
free as the flowers in May.

THE BIG EXPOSITION.
Expositions  are  becoming more
and more popular as educative  and
business mediums  and for the exchange of social courtesies between
the peoples  of the  earth.    Besides
the  harmony  and  goodwill which
they promote iu  friendly  competition for prizes the  results  in  commercial expansion more than offset
the  large^ expense  and  trouble in
collecting the exhibits and impressively  and  properly   housing them.
No  nation,   community  or district
can  afford  to  be 'unrepresented at
a  large   world    exposition.     The
logical inference is  that if a people
or a district has  anything  worthy
of exhibition   it  ought   to be, and
will, be placed  on   view  at a large
and convenient  exposition, such as
the    Alaska-Yukou-Pacific  to   be
held  at   Seattle  from  June 1st to
October 31st.
It is a matter of regret aud some
humiliation that Princeton and contiguous section with all their wealth
of   varied  natural   resources  have
never had   a  really representative
display   at  any exhibition.    Sheer
indifference and  apathy are largely
responsible for this.    And it cannot
be  a   matter  of after  complaint if
other sections reap the reward that
. -should be  ours, while  with  folded
hands we idly allow it.    That there
is vast wealth here in   coal and ore
not even the sourest  pessimist  or
unmitigated  knocker  can successfully deny.    But it must be demon-
. 'strated -beyond .mere newspaper assertion  or  individual  boosting : it
requires proof in actual  production
and exhibition to convince capitalist and  investor.    " Show me,"   is
the password into  all  sound speculation ; it is  the  key  that unlocks
•  the treasury  vaults of the big corporations, banks and capitalists.
The foregoing remarks   are quite
commonplace and to the progressive
.  citizen unnecessary.    But the Star's
message  and humble' desire is to
arouse citizens generally to a proper
appreciation    of   the    opportunity
presented for  advertising  this district  at  the A.-Y.-P., Seattle.    In
all likelihood  no  such  convenient
exhibition will occur again  within
the next decade, for it is not possible to find the  money or create the
interest,   except  at  long intervals,
in an exposition covering the same
ground as the previous one.
While Princeton district is known
the world over  as  mineral bearing

it is essential that something more
than a mere superficial acquaintance should be formed with it. It
cannot be done, however, without
actual contact with its minerals' and
other resources. The exposition
or exhibition, since the first one in
1852, in London, Eng., is increasingly recognized as the best and
most effectual means of making
known the resources of a district

COPPER
HANDBOOK^
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING: Copper history, geology, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, .exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copoer mines
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE : $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you ?

wan and it is believed confidently, Brit-
ist&Columbia will shortly take advantage
of jthe jopportunity to display the re-
sources-that have made her famous from
world's end to world's end. It is to be
an exposition of the "whole Northwest,
not of any fractional part of it and down
at this end of the line "B.C." looks
just like " Wash."
Special Canadian celebrations are being arranged, but af yet none except ten-
tave dates have been given. The exposition directors are in communication
with the officials at' Ottawa and definite
announcement of the special days will be
made. 'As they stand now British Columbia .week has been fixed from June 14
to June 19, inclusive. These dates have
been selected for the reason tBat the
period iadjoins the Inland Empire week
and tljie resources, productions, future
aud all else of the of the two are so closely related that it was deemed good sense
to. make it practically a continuous celebration by the one general district.
Dominion of Canada Day has been set
for June 10, on which date the opening
of the Canadian building^ill be celebra
ted and there will be one more big Dominion Day on July 1; Canada's real dav
to celebrate. A big lacrosse tournament
is also being arranged, but the detail®
are not sufficiently worked out to warrant
anything like definite announcement.
There is a very strong interest in the
great game on this side is the line and it
is more than probable that a team will be
made up of many former well known
Canadian players who are here and ach
ing to get out their sticks.
The- exposition is now about ninety
per cent complete, speaking ot its prin
cipal huildhigsy and assurance is doubly
sure that it will be complete in all de
tails and opened on June 1st, as was ffrst
announced.
