No offensive odor to Princeton coal; it is healthful.
| He labors in vain who studies to please all."
Princeton is the business centre 'for a large area of country and is beautifully situated at the forks of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers—Coal, Copper, Iran, Gold, Silver and Platinum are  some  of the minerals found in this  district—Railroad is building.

ORE SAMPLES TO SHIP
Cases Ready for Alaska-Yukon
Exposition and Yet   \
More Req uired .-
Samples are Good, But Some Sections
as Yet Unrepresented—Why
this Apathy.
Want Good Exhibit.
It is certain that a good exhibit of coal
and ore from this section at the gieat
Seattle Exposition will do more to direct
capital this way than any other-scheme
to be devised. In fact it is the only way
to convince an investor that there is any
mineral here wor'.h investigating If the
owners of mineral have not sufficient confidence in their ore to place it on view or
enterprise enough to send a sample, it
need not surprise them to finrt that no
written or verbal inquiries are made regarding their properties. There has not
been as hearty -a .response, .to the call for
ore samples as was expected. Some of
the camps are as yet wholU- unrepresent
edand it would be a disparaging blow to
the whole distiict if this be not remedied.
This district is known the world over as
rich in mineral?. A poor mineral exhibit will belie that statement and disapr
point many mining men and investors
who will attend the Exposition expecting to see a representative display from
Princeton and district. . As a final appeal
the Star uiges that individual owners
make a supreme effort to contribute to
the success of the local exhibit at the
A.-Y -P. The 15th of May is the last day
on which to ship samples to Seattle.
Claims Sampled.
Thanks to the energy aud public spirit
of E. Thomas and C. Saunders three
<;ases,of ore samples are now ready to ship
to Keremeos by first freight wagon. The
following is a list of their contents and
the locality : From Copper Mountain—
Nos. 4, 14, 18, Victor, Canadian Belle,
Jennie Silkman, Ada B, Sunrise, Silver
Dollar, Reco, Smuggler, Humboldt, Copper Farm, Oriole, Sunset, Gardiner, Red
Eagle, Princess .May. Triangle. From
Kennedy Mountain—Mogul, Red Buck,
Gladstone. FnJm Fivemile—Blue Ridge,
Long Jim, Gladstone*, Bull/Dog, Stevenson. Summit. From ttie Skagit—Skagit, Belmont. From Granite Creek—
Gold Crown. From Roche River—Red'
Star.    Total, 32 samples
As this number is only about half that
for which space is allowed at the Expo
sjlion it will be observed that as many
more samples are required. It is understood that a special sample will ba sent
from Roche River as soon as the snow
melts. Coal from the V F.M. Co's mine,
coal  briquets from  the United Empire,
coking coal from the North Fork of Granite Creek, platinum nuggets from Granite are yet to be sent. No samples have
been received, as yet from Bear, Boulder
or Friday Creeks, Summit Camp and the
Upper Tulameen, all of which should be
represented. h-*B
ANCH NEAR TOWN.
?»twood, of Coleman-, .-Alberta,
p- town last week and is over-
ng wofk on his ranch, including fruit
tree planting, fencing, etc..'' Heappre"-
cintes the genial climate of the Similkameen, coming from an altitude of some
4000 feet on the eact slope of the Rockies.
He is much impressed with the climatic
and physical adaptability of this country for agriculture and horticulture, both
of which do not seem to have that appreciation from the residents which their
value would seem to warrant. -Ba^ck to
the soil we must all go in allotted time,
but cultivating it is another proposition
and Dr. Wcstwood is forestalling the
grim reaper by engaging in that most
healthful, pleasant and remunerative occupation :. fruit growing. It' would be
difficult to find a more suitable location
fo'r an orchard, along the bank of, trie
Similkameen on a flat of somfe fifty acres
and within a few feet of water it will be
largely jsub-irrigated. & , good,.'local
market is awaiting the product of 'this
orchard. ■ ■ •

Ji:'.'' THIS COUNTRY BEST. / L'
Billy Knight retnrned recentlv from a
visit to his sister in California, spending
most of the winter with her and helping
himself to the best agoing in the orange
belt. Fruit is plentiful in that country
yet it sells as high as in Princeton where
there is no transportation. Everything
considered he much prefers Princeton
and district, which he sayi holds out
superior inducements . for the working-
man and investor. He saw many idle
men, who would have been glad to accept
any kind of work. In a few days Mr.
Knight and his partner, C. Day, will go
to their mineral claims in Highland Val
ley for the purpose of doing their annual
assessments. Knight & Day are hustling prospectors and will be heard from
in connection with some big strikes^
A COMBINED TRIP.
Ernest Waterman returned from the
coast on Sunday, where he went on pleasure, health and business. He had many
inquiries about the Similkameen and met
many old ttme Princetonians. Vancouver is booming and real estate still goes
skywards. Mr. Waterman was credibly-
informed that tracklaying would nof
begin until after high water in latter part
of July. He returns looking and feeling
much better having taken the 'cure' at
the famed Harrison Hot Springs, which
is thronged with visitors from all parts
of the country.
Stores and Office Building. ' .. :
Wm. Britton has the framework of his
new building well under way, being situated on lot 2, block 8, Bridge St. Its
size it 35x50, two storeys, with ;4-foo,t
'ceiling in the lower and 9 feet in the
upper store). The ground floor will be
partitioned to afford two stores. A stairway leads from the street up the centre
of the building to the second floor, the
front part of which will be suited for
offices, the rear portion, 18x35, being already taken by the Freemasons for lodge
purposes. The building is in 'the geographical centre of the town'and therefore well adapted for business purposes.
Neil.'MeFa'Men is, carpenter architect of
construction, the whol,e . being done Dy
days' work under Mr. Britton's personal
supervision. When finished it will be
an important addition to the business
structures of the town..' i
'     'Bank of'Commerce.
■ The building now in course of erection
for E. B. Hall by Bert Irwin, who has the
contract, is making good progress and is
now under cover. It is understood the
building has been leased by the Canadian Bank of Commerce the plans being
designed for banking convenience. The
building is 24x40, two storeys, flat roof,
basement and furnace room. The lower
storey will contain public business quarters, a consulting room and manager's
private apartments, while upstairs will be
suited for family residence, the whole
being well provided with light from some
dozen of large windows. When fittings
are in place the bank will <bp the equal
if not superior, in accommodation and
convenience, to any similar institution in
this part of the province. Contractor
Irwin expects to be finished about the
25th June and the bank will occupy about
a week later. The location, at the corner
of Billiter Av. and Bridge St. is central
and convenient.
Kenley Av. Dwellings.
A. B. Syues has erected an unique, yet
tasteful, residence on Kepley Av.'", containing seven 'rooms, hall, bathroom, verandah, alcove and wardrobes. Every
inch of space is utilized, giving the interior an air of snugness and convenience
so much desired in modern architecture.
Mr. Sykes built and designed his house
his handiwork being in evidence everywhere.
Huston Bros, and Mr. Sykes have car
ried out extensive improvements on Ken-r
ley Av in levelling the roadway and in
grading' arid beautifying their adjoining
properties. Len Huston has platited
some ornamental trees ,,an4.'Otherwise
added to the general appearance, of his
neatf.and well kept premises. Kenley
Av. is fast becoming a residential quarter,
'^ther dwellings being in contemplation
this summer. '

WHY DELAY ?
Whatever the cause of delay may
be in  completing the  V.,V. & E.
to Princeton, it is certain that public sentiment  is gaining ground in
favor of a real, instead  of a fictitious time limit to construction of
railways.     Charters,   as tboy are
now framed, are very plastic docu
ments,    possessing     qualities    of
stretching  and   sidestepping quite
beyond reason.    On the strength of
public  utterances    mad«  by  high
officials  of the  Great Northern investors and business men were led
to believe that the railway would be
completed to this point by May ist.
During  the elections last fall the
General  Manager   of    the    Great
Northern  definitely stated that the
track would be laid to Princeton by
early   May.     By  the terms of the
charter the V.,V. & E. should be
completed to   the coast by   1910.
As a matter of fact May is here and
the railway over forty miles distant
with not a spike driven nor a tracklayer  on  the  horizon.    The  year
1909 will soon be half spent, making it  utterly  impossible  to reach
the  coast  on charter time ; in fact,
pushed ever so hard, through trains
to the  coast  could  not be running
before 1912.
With the foregoing facts before
our eyes and with no desire whatever to antagonize railway and other
"interests the attention of the Minister of Railways is directed to them
in the hope that steps to accelerate
railway construction may be taken
and the terms of the charter lived
up to. It is nine years since the
first railway charter covering the
Similkameen was issued. During
all these years people have invested
in the hope and belief that unusual
delay in constructing the road
would not be in the program. But
disappointment after disappointment
and dela}' upon delay has taken
place until patience is well nigh
exhausted. Every industry that
this country is capable of supporting is hanging upon the progress
of the railway and its final completion. Stagnation in mercantile and
other business, virtual closing down
of mining and development work
are the result of inexplicable delay
of the road. In view of these conditions appeal is made to both the
government and President Hill to
complete tbe V.,V. & E. to the coast
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Victoria Post, issued from
the Colonist office recently and the
Gazette, run by Duncan Ross, soon
to appear in Vancouver, are the
latest additions to the evening field
of newspapers. It takes money to
run a newspaper and it used to take
brains also but tbe Gazette is a
contradiction of both.
Provincial Elections  Act.
Take notice that I have received objections in
writing to the undermentioned person's names
being retained on the list of voters for the Similkameen Electorial District.
Name of Person.
Attorney-General Bowser is now
touring in Europe. Unlike Castro,
(Castor Oil) he is sure of a welcome
wherever he goes : Even some Grits
would unbend so far as to recognize
him at, say Monte Carlo, if he happened to win.
On May 4th "Fightin' Joe"
Martin will know whether he will
have a seat in the British House of
Commons for Stratford-on-Avon or
be relegated to the cold shades of
defeat. Whichever it is, Joe is sure
to bear with equanimity. His admirable pluck and nerve in 'sailing
into' an English political battle as
soon as his foot touches the shore
is eminently characteristic of the
man. The House of Lords, which
seems to be the only body of hereditary legislators in the world;
Free Trade, of which Britain is the
proud exemplar of all nations, and
Woman Suffrage, which is bound
to come in all countries where civilization advances, are the three
horses on which the Star hopes Joe
will ride to victory and fame.
G. A. Harris; who figured as
advance agent in the Liberal campaign last fall is going to Japan as
commercial agent for Canada. His
experience as a 'drummer' is now
likely to, be of some service in
drumming up trade with the Japs.
It does' not appear to be thoroughly known that there is a law
prohibiting sale of cigarettes to
youths. The spectacle of a lad
with a coffin nail between his teeth
and smoke issuing from his nose is
not one calculated to inspire hope
for his future moral and physical
well being.
It is now Judge Mclnnes instead
of plain "Billy" as everybody knew
him on the political stump. His
political career and sudden transformation to the bench is a complete reversal of the old saw: From
the sublime to tbe ridiculous.
The great trek of settlers from
the United States to the wheatlands
of the Northwest is expected to
reach a total of 100,000 souls this
year, bringing with them in cash
and effects about $70,000,000.
at the earliest  possible  date, thus!     A constitutional Turkey,  not a
opening up a  country of vast min-1 stuffed one.    Take it off tbe map.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
April 28, i9°9
THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
If people would commend as quickly
as they condemn what a different town
this would be ?
Music is good for the soul—it refines
the young and cheers the old.
There are grouchers, knockers, kickers and backcappers in every camp—no
matter what is proposed they op-pose.
It is the only way they can get anyone
to give them even a moment's attention.
Pity them rather than despise.
The man who will steal an egg won't
overlook a sheep on a dark night.
Sunshine in the heart must illuminate
the face—open wide the windows to this
seat of life that the face may reflect some
of it s happiness, shedding its rays upon
those around.
Poverty and pride make wakeful nights
for those thns afflicted.
Some men cannot lead and they will
not follow, so they are always out in the
cold ; another kind want to do it all and
wear all the glory, ignoring all help.
Both classes, generally are lost in the
Crowd that has no use for the self-centred, self-important. When a man sees
that the water does not follow him, he
should follow the water.
The child in thejijqradle is the man or
-woman of later life.
The world is always ready" to receive
the man with a message. Sensible words
«nd ideas, make men pause and think.
It is the secret, unconfessed sin, that
blights and withers. There is no hope
for the transgressor who does not penitently ask forgiveness.
When a man ii so busy he hasn't time
to kiss the babv goodbye it is certain he
should take a day off.
I Let no day pass without giving the cup
of cold "water, which is equivalent to
doing something kindly to man or beasfc
