WANTS MORE TIME
Kettle Valley Railway Co. will
Apply to Government
for Delay.
Penticton Municipal Council andBoard
of Trade Ask Cooperation of
Princeton People.
The following letter addressed to 'His
Worship, the Mayor and Council,' iu the
belief that Princeton was incorporated,
which, of course, it is not, is published
without comment for the information of
the public. Whether action in the matter is taken or not the public must be the
arbiters of their own interests and decide
whether they would or would not be
benefitted by the delay asked for iu the
construction of the Kettle Valley railway. The Kettle Valley line has already-
been under construction several year-
and is in receipt of some $10,000 per
mile subsidy from the Dominion and
provincial governments:
Gentlemen.—At  a special   meeting of
the council of the  corporation—__L_Pen-
ticti<_tT_feld in the  municipal offices  on
November  27th, 1911, the Resolution at
tached hereto was  moved, seconded  and
passed unanimously, and I am instructed
by said council to request your honorable
body   will   endorse   this   resolution   by
passing a similiar resolution asking that
the governuitnt will, not^grant  the said
railwa"y-__y-______p-extension of time for
the completion of their lines.
Your earnest consideration of this important matter is most respectfully
solicited.
I have the honor to be, gentlemen,
your obedient servant.
J. Gardner,  Mun. Clerk.
RESOLUTION.
' That whereas, The Kettle River Valley
Railway has entered into an agreement
made on the se_Qnd^c_ty-_f May, 1911,
with the District Municipality of _?en-
ticton to (a) build its line of railway
through Penticton (b) make_Egnticton a
divisio__t~-p_i_„ on said railway (c) to
construct necessary roundhouses, machine
shops, etc., and (d) commence actual
construction of said railway through
Penticton within two months from the
date thereof and to proceed expeditiously
with all due despatch with construction
of said railway and to complete the said
railway and works in this lnunincipality
within the time specified.
And whereas, in our opinion the said
railway has not proceeded with the said
works and construction expeditiously
and with all due despatch and commenced active construction of the said
railway within the time agreed upon.
And whereas, a large amount of capital
has been invested in Penticton and district in various business enterprises, in
expectation of the construction of the
said railwa> within the time agreed upon.
And whereas, the District Municipality
of Penticton has paid the Kettle River
Valley a large bonus and granted certain
exemptions and privileges as consideration under the above agreement for the
speedy construction of the said railway
and works and within the time specified
As whereas, a notice has appeared in
the "Penticton Herald" to the effect that
the said railway intends Io apply to the
forthcoming session of the Parliament of
Canada for an extension of lime for the
completion of its lines and branches
under construction.
And whereas, the granting of any ex-
tention of time for the construction and
completion of the said railway will mean
a'heavy loss to the fruit growers, business
men and others in this town and district.
Now, therefore be it resolved, that the
Federal Government of Canada, and the
Legislature of this Province be respect
fully asked not to grant any extension of
time tor the construction and completion
of the said Kettle River Valley railway
under construction.'
The extension of time-required by the
Kettle Valley Railway appears in an advertisement in the Penticton Press which
reads : ' and extending tne time within
which it may construct the railways and
branches which it has been heretofore
authorized to construct.'
EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton.—W. H. Carsly has
finished up a neat cottage on ninlth  ave.
The pile driver finished the approach
to the north end of the Similkameen
bridge yesterday. The machine will be
trove 1 to the first bridge on tha'oneinile
creek and will have the safall bridges
ready for the steel at the sa_ie time as fhe
la'ge one. ¥-•'• i-
The big fill leading to the bridge was
fihished on Saturday night.
E. P. Gaillac, Supt. of the United Empire coal mine returned on Saturday from
a short visit to Spokane.
The B. C. Portland Cement Company
have commenced work on the foundations for the machinery which is to be
installed in the factory. Some of the
machines are now on the road.
M. Irwin has been appointed temporary
_gi_i _£V for the Great Northern at he
stationTTere, taking trre~-pl_ce of H. C.
Snyder, resigned, who goes to Michigan.
J. H. Drurnrnond, recently of Grand
Forks and Fernie, has accepted a position
with the A. E. Howse Co.
G. H. Whiteman has received a position in the office of the Princeton Coal
& Land Co. and will be a citizen of ' no
mean city.'
MINES AND MINING
Silver-Lead-Zinc Industry will
Receive Attention of
B.C. Members.
Princeton Coal & Land Co's Extensive
Improvements—Mining on
the Whipsaw.
Three coal mine s, D. Wurmirovitch,
a Servian, aged 25; R. Dishart, Scotchman, aged 28 and Alex. Thompson, aged
17; were suffocated on Sunday night at
Middlesboro mines.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. are
now in the midst of great changes and
improvements which involve a complete
installation of modern mining machinery. When all is in order the facilities
for coal mining will be first- class and a
large increase in tonnage output result.
New buildings include an uptodate machine shop where custom work will be
done and repains /made for the mine.
Superintendent Holden expects to have
the new equipment in full operation in a
few days.
Samples of silver lead ore from the
Lueky Pair mav be seen at the Star mineral department.
-B.C. members of parliament will take
action to obtain legislation for encouragement of the  silver lead-zinc industry.
As work proceeds on the Lucky Pair
at Whipsaw camp the ore improves.
Samples recently taken from the face of
the tunnel show concentration and now
the galena appears in well defined ribs
or veinlets. At present there are about
twenty feet of depth from the surface,
the oxidization being less marked with
the increase of definite ore values. Development work will be pushed by
Knight & Day all winter and their bin
will then contain a large amount of valuable ore.
A GREAT HIGHWAY.
Altho the Canadian Highway Association has only been in existence for one
month, the work it has accompished in
this short spHce of time is conclusive
proof that the organization will be an
important factor in the development cf
this country by the building of good
roads.
Letters of encouragement have been
received by the officers from many cities
in the east, and from Hazelton, Dawson
and Alberni, the latter the western terminus of the proposed Canadian highway.
W. W. Foster, Deputy Mipinister of
Public Works, in a letter tcj^W. J. Kerr,
Prgsident of the association, outlines the
following route as the most practicable
for the construction of British Columbia's
portion of the Canadian  highway:   Al
berni to Victoria via Nanaimo; Vancouver
Westminister, Hope, Princeton, Rossland
thence to Trail, crossing the Columbia
by the new bridge now in course of construction, and via Summit Creek, along
the old Dewdney trail to Crestou, thence
following the main trunk road into Alberta.
While this route cannot be considered
final until all the reports from the surveyors and engineers have been submitted to the Department of Public
Wotks, it is not likely that any import-
any deviation will be made
By his reference in his speech from the
throne at the opening of the house of
commons on November 16th, His Royal
Highness, the Duke of Connaught put
the stamp of royal approval on the plan
to construct a Canadian highway that
will stretch from coast to coast. His in-
tifaation that the federal and provincial
governments would work hand in hand
with a view to improving the highways
of Canada has already been of great assistance to ihe men who are taking an
active part in the work of the Canadian
Highway Association, showing as it does
that it only needs proper representation
to the authorities in order to secure at
once the commencement of this great
national enterprise.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
A Christmas entertainment for the
children of the Presbyterian Sunday
school will be held on Friday evening,
Dec 23 Keep this date open. Fuller
particulars later.
Skating at the Owl began today and
this popular pastime is now in full swing.
R. Fitzgeyald came down from the
heads of ninemile and Granite Creeks,
where he has been U«f{_3ing, having
caught four lynx ajfd a fisher. The
weather has beetymild. Deer in large
numbers have been loitering about
southern slopes of the mountains where
there is not much snow and feed easily
obtained. He thinks that the fact of deer
remaining so high up at this time of
year indicates an open win er He found
the snow too light for good snow-shoeing.
Do your Christmas shopping early and
relieve the workers of any strain or rush
during the immediate holiday season.
The road now being constructed by the
Princeton Coal & Land Co. to reach their
property on the benches is in a forward
state and will aflVrd a fiine view of the
varied scenery around and in the town.
The game warden, C. Schisler, has been
on the alert for infrklgement of the
Game Act and mad< seizure of a fawn
about to be sent oert of the country. Mr.
Schisler is determined to put an end to
illegal hunting.
Hockey is again coming to the fore and

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
More in pity than in  shame  will
labor   bow   its   head   over  the disgrace caused  by the  startling confession of the   McNamara  brothers
at Los Angeles.    It is a blot on   all
humanity that moral conditions are
such as to make  it   possible for the
leaven  of crime to work stealthily
in   labor   unions   or in the highest
financial and society circles, ending
always  in   ghastly   climax   on the
scaffold  or  in   felon's cell     Labor
loses   none   of its  dignity  because
blatant demagogues and villains are
found  occasionally   in   its    ranks.
No true unionist will falter through
the   misdeeds   of   his  fellows;   on
the  contrary   he will   wage war of
extermination   on every suggestion
■of wrongdoing within  his   particular   sphere  of influence   and   with
greater   vigor   than   ever fight for
that unionism whose principles are
founded ou liberty, justice, brother
hood.
VIRTUES OF THE ONION.
Onions are   really sweeteners  of  the
breath after the local effects have passed
away, as they correct j^omach-d-tsorders
and carry off the accumulated poisons^ of
of    the  sys__ST    They  provide a blood
purifie.r____iat all may  freely use,  ana  do
perfect work   in   constipation   troubles.
As  a   vermifuge,   the onion   cannot  be
surpassed, and eaten raw will often check
a violent cohj  in   111. ]]?pA     One  small
onion eaten before retiring every night is
a   well-known  dpctor's  prescription  for
numero.us affections of thehead, and is
highly   recommended   for sleeplessness
It acts on the nerves in   a  soothing way,
without the injurious   ffects of the drugs
often applied.    The  heart of  the  onion
heated and placed  in the  ear will   often
relieve the agony of ear ache,   while  the
syrup produced ftoth sprinkling a  sliced
onion with sugar aud   baking is  said to
work   wonders in   a   croupy  child.—Selected

SURROUNDING
SCIENCE AND INVENTION.
Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of
Agriculture, will move for a commission to inquire into the conditions of agriculture throughout the
Dominion. In the Similkameen
there is much need of scientific
farming. Horse, cattle, sheep, hog
and poultry raising are capable of
immense improvement and expan
sion here, saving many a thousand
dollars now finding its way into
foreign pockets.
THE B.C. YEAR BOOK.
'The Year Book of British Columbia'
recently issued, reflects the highest credit
upon the compiler, R. E. Gosnell. Having ably filled the editorial chair on the
Vancouver News-Advertiser over twenty
years ago, Mr. Gosnell has done much
public work for governments and cities
qualifications which fit him for the im.
portnant work under review. One °f
the most interesting sections of the work
is the historical review, which tells all
about the early history of the Province.
The information with regard to the natural wealth of B. C. should prove very interesting, and the story of the progress
of the Province will no doubt surprise
those who have not bten in a position
to secure authentic information on this
point. It is now eight years since Mr.
Gosnell issued his last Year Book, and a
great many important events have trans
p'.red in this Province since that time. In
his present publication, containing about
360 pages, the publisher has completely
Road Machine--This invention pro:
vides a scraping blade and supporting
frame connected directly with the draft

wheels and means for varying their
angle of opeation; provides for the

eratioh whereof serves to vary the lift

The Great Inventor, Edison, On
S „EEP.—Many people sleep too long,
and over-sleeping, contrary to accepttd
ideas, so far from being refreshing,
renders one sluggish and slothful. Hard
work, work in which you are thoroughly
in erested, is more stimulating and re
freshing than sleep for sleep's sake. For
thirty years I slept only four hours a day
an 1 I have had lots of assistants at var
ious limes that did the s.ame thing We
all felt fine.
Big Fortunes in Little Inventions.
—The patent for a typewriter lay dormant for half a centuary in France be
fore it ever came into use. Then a man
by the name of Sholes made a machine
iu this country and called it Remington.
Another man named Brown made a different kind of a typewriter and called it
the Smith. The patantees immortalized
other men by their work. They made
millions and also made it much more
pleasant for the editor who has to read
copy.
The man who invented tin cans made
it necessary for somebody to invent an
opener. This was done and the money
corralled. A can openar is not a laborious thing in using, but the public is always ready to pay for things that are
made easier. So, just recently, an inventive genius made a can with a seam
just below the top and when the owner
wants it open he has but to strike it a
blow where the seam breaks and the top
is off. A single Chicago packer ordered
ten millions of these cans as an experiment and others followed suit. The in
ventor has a fortune, and the thirg is but
just begun. I

Here are some of the Reasons :
East Princeton is surrounded by huge de=
posits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important flinerals.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a Iig=
nite coal of the best quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred employees. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For transportation, East Princeton will
have, in the near future, the Great Northern
and the Kettle Valley lines, both of which,
will pass through the townsite.
East Princeton is beautifully situated on
the Similkameen River, with an abundance
of water power available. The new city has
every facter for growth into a big industrial
centre.
It presents a rare opportunity for invest=
ment.    Get full particulars immediately.

COALMONT
I The Town ol Opportunity   l§§§
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.

ROD AND GUN.
_ For the big game bunting month Rod
and Gun in Canada, published by W. J.
Taylor, Woodstock, Ont., still keeps big
game stones well to the front in the November issue. Hunters on their annual
vacation bent, those in camp and those
returning, after fine experiences and with
many pleasant recollections of recent and
former outings, will all welcome the
wealth of good stories contained in the
latest issue. Mr. Bonnvcastle Dale opens
the number wilh one of his British Col
umbia studies, which he makes so fasci
nating to all lovers of the outdoors.
More is heard about the wolves and still
more about the moose, a large head hav
ing been secured by Mr. Rankin. A
variety from the big game stories is introduced by one relating the adventures
of a duck shooting exp.dition n Saskat
chewan and a combined fishing and
hunting trip in Novj Scotia Angling
readers should not miss the symposium
by past masters in the art in some interesting fishing querjest. The aiticles on
the Wild Passenger Pigeon and the surveying of a new Alpine dbtrict by A. O.
Wheeler .should by no means be overlooked. As usual there is so much
good material running through the whole
ps the pages that it is impossible to men
tion more than a few of the most conspi
cious good things in store for all readers

According to the laws of industrial progress and the experience of founders of western towns,
there must be a tangible, genuine basis on which to establish the future city. No amount of
coaxing can bring blood out of a stone, nor can the greatest scientist extract sunbeams from a
cucumber. Every man makes his own destiny==his own fortune==nothing comes by so=called
good luck.   The door is wide ajar for all who have pluck and a little capital.   Investigate Now!
