No choked or dirty stovepipes from Princeton coal
Sin causes disease, therefore the same remedy applies to both.
With the completion of the railway, now building, to Vancouver there will be a demand for country homes in the salubrious Similkameen ; this is a pointer to remember—Portland Cement works on large scale already plann d; smelter and coke ovens in near future.

PRINCETON EN FETE
Dominion Day Duly Honored
—Sister Towns Join
in Gaieties.
Wins Cup Shooting, Loses Baseball,
but Recovers in Races—Crowd
Biggest Tet.
With the royal salute of twenty-one
guns at 5:30 a.m. on Dominion Day began
the most memorable celebration ever held
in Princeton. The weather was perfeit
up to mid afternoon, then a scudding
shower drove the crowds to shelter, after
which the sports continued to the finish.
Nothing transpired during the day to
mar the social and patriotic occasion
and everybody went away feeling that it
was good to be there. From over the
mountains, up the valleys and down the
draws came a throng of courijry cousins
while a train load of Oroville, Keremeos
and Hedley excursionists swelled the
crowd to large proportions.
Band Flayed Well, Also Ball Team.
Nothing but pleasant memories remain
of the day for all those who were willing
to enter into the spiri' of the occasion
and who wanted Io be happy and make
others happy also. Our Washington
visitors added much to the enthusiasm
of the occasion, in fact, without the Oroville contingent of band, baseball team
s and the fraternizing ladies and gentlemen accompanying, it would have been
difficult to realize the expectations of the
officials and committees regarding the
net results and success of the whole
affair. While the Oroville baseball team
did well and won a very decisive victory
it is to the band that most Princetonians
will accord the generous meed of praise.
The music was fine and of course there
was no opportunity for betting on it, as
on the ball game—the band was a general
favorite and will be a welcome guest of
the coal and ore metropolis at any time
in the future.
In the trapshooting contest Princeton
won by a score of 76 to 49 for Hedley,
the Shatford cup thus remaining with
Priuceton. In the individual shooting
contest E. Waterman won first prize, $25;
E. Richter, 2nd, $15 ; A. E. Irwin, 3rd,
$10.
Sports Keenly Competed.
In the athletic sports competition was
keen and the winners earned their money
in each event. Beginning in the forenoon the first item was a boy's race won
by Oren Knight; 2nd, Tommy Bromfield;
girls' race, Grace Norman, Mary Semerad ; theee legged race, Ryder and Richter, Corrigan and Smith ; boys' three
legged race, Mills and Knight, McLean
and Holmes.     Hop-step-and-jump,   is^
Vic Ryder; 2nd, Horace Brewer; running long jump, V. Ryder, H. Brewer;
100 yards dash, F. A. Bluett, Gus Clerf;
220-yards dash, D. G. McCurdy, Jack
Smith; putting the shot, Bob Jamieson,
H   Brewer.
In the horse races, freeforall, first
money was taken by Moose, owned by P.
Burns Co.; 2nd, Baker's black mare.
Saddle horse race, first, C. Summers'
JLoattiew Cowboy race, first, C. Summers' Johnny Bull. Consolation race,
first, Charlie Murdock.
The credit for the success of the celebration must be chiefly given to the general committee of citizens who planned
the whole affair and to the untiring energies of Chairman Lumsden and Secretary Carmichael.
Admitting that the baseball match was
lopsided, due largely to our boys being
unpractised, the materiel of the home
.team is fully equal to that of the visitors.
Pitcher Farrell simply outclassed his
rival from Oroville but he lacked support from untrained fielders. It is believed that the Princeton team could
easily win from the visitors with some
hard practise.
Popular Journalist in Crowd.
Among the Oroville contingent was
that veteran of the west, Frank M. Dallam, pioneer journalist and politician
He is editor of the OroVHle*'Gazi(!le7 a
paper that reflects all the news in terse,
well written articles and was the founder
of the Spokane Spokesman Review, now
one of the most influential papers in the
■northwest. Mr. Dallam positively refuses to be old, is just 63 years young, and
takes as much fnn out 01' baseball as
when he twirled the sphere or flung the
bat as a starter on a home tun. He is
pleased with Priuceton and is quite optimistic as to its resources and future Mr.
Dallam has a host of friends in his state
and is a possible senaigk.in tht nextelec-
tions. After looking over the machinery
of the Star and chatting with its imp he
said goodbye, leaving the impression
behind that though a boundary line separates it cannot prevent friendly associations.   Come again, Bro. Dallam.
When the ball favored, the hair-lifting
cheers of the Orovillians seemed to just
naturally wither the hopes and ambitions of our fellows. 'What gr^atjhests
and/Hnpgs those ladies have,' said a. spec-:
tator, pointing to the cheering Americans. o\Ak#
Cheering seems to be a 'lost art' with
us. It is inspirational and ought to be
cultivated.
J. A. Brown of Keremeos was umpire
of the ball game and gave satisfaction
to both winners and losers. HSe is probably the first umpire in history [to placate
the feelings of all concerned.
Huston Bros, did a fine stunt in the
decoration  of the band  wagorj with the

THE BOARD OF TRADE
Need of Publicity and Ore Exhibits to Attract Capital
to District.
Board will Act in Respect of Better
■ Court Facilities.—Athletic
Grounds Endorsed.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Princeton Board of Trade was held Monday evening. After routine communi
cations were lead as follows :
From Judge Tunstall,- expressing ap-
preciatioii of the .President's invitation
to attend a meeting of the board. He
savs: I occupied for many years the
position of goid commissioner for the
Similkameen mining division, in whose
prosperity I feel very much interested.
From the Publicity Department of the
Vancouver Fxhibition Association urging
mineral display. The exhibition will be
opened by Sir Wilfrid Laurier on Aug.
16th and will continue for five days.
From H. B. Brown, Hedley, stating
that in connection with the traffic department of the Great Northern railway he
ii gathering a line of ore samples to be
exhibited at Vancouver and New Westminster fairs and then some of the samples will go east for office display. He
savs that if 'we can get our ores exhibited and get as many boosters as possible
for the Similkameen we can hold other
sections level.' He states that he will
be in this section soon to make ore collections.
Mineral Exhibits Advertise.
From L. K. Armstiong, superintendent
of mineral department, Spokane Interstate Fair, replying to a letter from Secretary Avery re mineral exhibit from
P inceton district. He says : 'I think
that the recent opening of your country
by the extension of the Great Northern
railway system will greatly advantage
you if you give the country and resources
the publicity which they deserve. With
your coal, copper, and gold mines and
your other mineral prospects it is an attractive field for investment of capital.
I shall be pleased to keep iu touch with
you and would urge tlytt you make the
mineral collection comprehensive, sending photos, maps, data, etc'
The question of increased court facilities was brought to the notice of the
board. It was pointed out that instead
of county court being held twice a year
as at present it should be held quarterly.
The necessity for an assize court in the
Similkameen riding is also apparent.
The secretary was instructed to obtain
further information to be laid before the
board next meeting.
The movement to procure suitable
grounds for a race track, athletic sports,
games, picnics and park purposes met
with the hearty endorsation of the members of the board.
On motion Percy E. Rowlands was
elected a member of the board.
Board adjourned.
COAL BARON—WHEAT KING.
W. L. Parish and family atrived last
week from Winnipeg and are now at
Granite CrSek. He is secretary-treasurer
■OT the Columbia Coal & Coke Co., owners of some 5000 acres of coal and other
lands on the North Fork of Granite
creek and on the Tulameen river. The
coal is coking and suitable for blacksmith's use. It is estimated there are
120,000,000 tons in the measure. Mr.
Parish is a grain broker and partner in
the Western Canada Flour Co.
THE SHERRYS.
High class comedians, musicians, dancers and musical sketch artists. Don't fail
to see them in their latest comedy play,
entitled "Jackson's Honeymoon," "The
Night Before Election," "Breaking Into
Vaudeville."    Each one a scream.
The Sherrys have been on the road for
years and have built up a reputation that
is all the recommendation they require.
Latest songs, new music, good dancing
and clever magic. No waits. Your
money back if not satisfied. At the
Oddfellow's Hall, Wednesday, July 13.
A social dance after the show. A.i music.
RAILWAX RUMORS.
It is learned from the coast that Jim
Hill will build a branch line down the
Coldwatex~to-Merritt to get his share of
the coal tonnage and as a checkmate to
the C.P.R. It is also reported that a big
push will be made as soon as steel is laid
to Tuiameen and that the V.,V. & E.
will be in Merritt in twelve months. In
view of the fact that the C.P.R. will tap
Princeton through the Kettle Valley line,
it is not surprising to learn of the Great
Northern stretching out to the rich Nicola valley.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
The Similkameen hotel, owned by A.
B. Fowler ^Co.^will be fully equipped
for the reception of guests on Monday
next. At present 100ms only are available.
Chas. Camsell, Dominion geologist, is
at work with his party on Granite creek.
H. H. Avery has let the contract to
A. E. Fowler for the erection of a building 50x50 on the corner of Fenchurch
Av. and Bridge St. The structure will
contain three stores, is one story with
12-foot ceiling.
A public meeting will be held in the
court house on Friday evening next, 8th
inst., at 8 p.m., to consider ways and
means of securiug grounds suitable for
race track and athletic sports. All citizens interested ate expected to attend.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One thing which roust have been
forcibly  impressed   upon   all  who
attended the celebration on Dominion  Day was the lack  of suitable
grounds  for    the  proper carrying
out and exhibition  of the  various
events on  the program.    Tbe first
consideration  is  good and handily
located  grounds  for   'staging'  the
usual  sports,    races     and    games
at celebrations, picnics or other demonstrations, and secondly, provision for the comfort and convenience
of the spectators,   which  includes
sheltered  seating,   booths,  closets,
water, &c.    Without the grounds,
no matter  how  attractive  tbe program  may be,   there cannot  be a
due appreciation of the events, and
the occasion loses much of its spectacular  interest.     More  important
still  is  the handicap  put upon all
performances    and   games by  the
poor  condition of grounds.     And
the fact   of   onlookers  having  to
stand throughout  a  long program
is wearisome enough  to  unfit  one
for,any enjoyment or pleasure.    If
Princeton, is  to  maintain   a  good
reputation for  celebrations it must
immediately  provide  a  race track
and  athletic   grounds   within  the
town, iimifs  or  as close as possible
to it.    It is now  in  order to call a
public   meeting    and   discuss   the
whole question of park reservation
and athletic grounds.
better guess at facts than the Guardian scribe ought to be under the
guardianship of the Society for the
propagation of truth. A 'dozen
shanties,' and 'spruce clearing.'
This borders on villification and
Star demands retraction with humble apology. The jay who serves
miscellaneous hash on the Guardian should come to Princeton and
give bis readers some columns of
fact regarding the wonderful resources of this district, thus pointing the English investor to wealth
and prosperity. Try again, Guardian.

As an instance of the.(smote
corners of earth to which Star
sooner or later finds it way the following clipping from the Guardian,
a weakly paper printed in one of
the back townships of England at
a place called Manchester, will
readily show. It says : ' Princeton,
a city of a dozen shanties set in a
spruce clearing at the confluence of
the Similkameen and Tu(l)ameen
rivers in the extreme south of British Columbia, publishes a tjaii/v
newspaper of two sheets, and. has
done so for eleven years past. The
Similkameen Star in a recent issue
recorded the arrival of the first regular train at Princeton, which pulled
into the station (we are told) containing quite a number of passengers. The prolonged tootaloot of
the whistle announced the arrival
of the train as she sailed into the
depot,' &c, &c. 'Princeton a city
of a dozen shanties set in a spruce
clearing' is rich, if highly inaccurate and imaginative. Any newspaper editor who could not make a
