This is the f railway age l of the Similkameen; see the development to accompany it and invest before high altitudes are reached

PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1910.        $2 a Year in Advance
Vol. XI. No. 9.
EXECUTIVE AT WORK
Committee in Session, Act on
Hospital  and   other
Public Issues.
Resolution Passed for Dominion Public Building and Petition
to Ottawa.
The Executive Committee of the Board
of Trade met on Monday night, W. C.
Brown iu the chajr, there being present
Messrs. Avery, Bell, Brown Lumsden.
Marlow, Murdock, Wardle and Wright
The rules of order and debate submitted
by a sub committee we:e adopted.
J. D. Lumsden reported on behalf of
the hospital committee that he had received a further reply from L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., giving assurance of his
earnest desire to help the hospital along
insofar as government aid could be obtained. After due deliberation, the hospital committee was urged to proceed
without delay, call a public meeting and
start a subscription list toward the hospital building. The Vermiliou Forks Co.
had already given a sile, six lots in fine
location, valued at $1500, and residents
of Princeton and district would be solicited to make up the balance of $1000,
leaking a _suni of $2500, which it was
expected the government would supplement with an equal amount, as in other
places, the total outlay, minus equipment
being estimated at $5000.
Resolution and Petition.
The following resolution, to accompany
a petition from the general public for a
Dominion public building in Princeton
was endorsed by the committee : ' Resolved, That the growing importance of
Princeton demands separate housing,
distinct from store or other business, for
the postoffice, telephone exchange, inland revenue inspector and sub collector
of customs, and this committee respectfully urges immediate action in satisfaction of the public wish and convenience.'
It was pointed out in the debate ensuing that better accommodation for the
general public and P.O. box holders in
having access to boxes at all reasonable hours as in other places, is required.
In the matter of telephones it was shown
that applicants for them are subject to
unnecessary delay. The very marked
discrepancy in telephone rental here and
at Nicola was alluded to, Princeton subscribers paying double those of Nicola.
The Executive committee will report
at. the next meeting of the Board of
Trade, March 7. Committee adjourned
sine die.
LUMBER CO. ENLARGING.
The Similkameen Lumber Co., has
bought the sawmill and lumber owned
by FTP. Cook, tne business thus trans
ferred being carried on by the first named
It is the intention of the Similkameen
Lumber Co. to enlarge their facilities for
the building trade and for this purpose
have secured six lots near the railway
station, which will be used as—a-Jjjmber
yard. This company will keep in stock"
STTkinds of wood material used in buildings, as well as hardware for structural
purposes.
RAILWAY RUMBLINGS.
Incorporation of the town of Merritt
has been postponed by decision of the
people of that growing burg.
Large Quantities of Supplies Moving
to the Pront.
J. A. Macaipin, chief of commissary
for J W. Stewart & Co., the big railwav
contractors, is one of the busiest of men
these days Large quantities of supplies
are received dailv by rail and then sent
on to the various sub contractors now
strung out along the eighteen miles of
line recently let. Excellent sleighing
affords good haulage.
The steam shovel began work last
Monday on the arproach to the tunnel
In a few days Hill's artillery will attack
the rock 'forts' beiween here and Granite
creek and the whole Jimhillkameen valley will resound with-the bombardment.
Let 'er go !    We are waitin', yes, waitin'.
The Vancouver Province of the nth
inst. in its report of the proceedings of
the Legislature says:
"Mr. Shatford, Similkameen, asked
leave to present a petition for a private
bill for the incorporation of the Penticton
Railway company. As announced" in the
Province yesterday this bill will confer
power for the construction of a line of
railway from Penticton southward
through the lower Okanagan valley to
the international boundary line. It is no
secret that the V. V. & E. Railway—
which is the_Great Northern railway in
British Columbia—is behind the application. Connection will be made at Oroville, Wash., with the V.V. & E. railway"
The party of Great Northern surveyors
working this way from Oroville are now
this side of Fairview. The party comprising about sixteen in number, are
taking plenty of time in their work,
which is evidence that the survey now
being made is final. The route between
Oroville and this point is probably the
easiest for railway building of any section
in the province, and, should construction
start in the spring, the end of summer
should see railway communication estab
lished between Penticton aud Oroville.
MINES AND MINING
Spokane Market Glutted with
Coal and Combination
is Suspected.
Big Goal Deal in Nicola and others on
Tapis—Wagon Loads of Silver
for China.
The coal market in Spokane is in a
disturbed^ condition just now owing to
the sudden filling of September orders,
causing a glut. A regular and continuous supply of coal is the normal condition of the Spokane market, but, fiom
some cause not yet made plain a vast
volume has been poured into the city
from the coal mines cf Wyoming and
other fields. There is good ground for
suspecting combined action of producers
and dealers to prevent inroads of Princeton coal on what they possibly construe
as their preserve. They have reason to
fear the encroachment of Princeton coal
owing to its superior qualities but sooner
or later this combine must be ousted
from their stronghold. Once used, always
used, is the chorus one hears from con
sumers of Princeton coal.
Options have recently been taken on a
large number of Nicola coal properties,
including those of John and James Smith,
Henry Lindley and Barclay   Bonthrone.
The Midway coal mine tunnel is now
in over 140 feet.
The C.N.P. Coal Co. will shortly re-
open the mines at Morrissey.
Ninty-two vessels are tied up in Sydney
Harbor, N.S.W. as a result of a coal strike.
Three wagon loads of silver were shipped from Trail for China last week.
Work on the Swede group, at Poplar,
is shortly to be worked by a wealthy
syndicate.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
F. E. Groffman, Similkameen Lands
and Mines, left for Spokane today.
Is Halley's comet responsible for this
late cold dip? Or did Cook monkey

A dance party at the home of Mr, and
Mrs. J. F. Waddell on Friday ,night at
Allison was largely attended by friends
of theirs. Two sleighloads of merrymakers from town, besides private rigs,
enjoyed the ride in the crisp, moonlit
atmosphere, returning just as chanticleer
began to flop his wings and crow at early
dawn. Everybody voted that it was a
pleasant and enjoyable occasion, affording proof of the popularity of host and
hostess who are now removing to Princeton.
Avery & Avery sold at mortgage sale
on the 17th inst, the house and lot of
Block 11, for $500, William H. Lambert,,
purchaser.
Walter Martin aud wife are removing

Summit since the 1st of January. He
has quit trapping for the present.
W. G., Norrie was in town last week

FAVORS SEPARATE BUILDING.
Regarding the isolation of government
offices from stores or other business, no
less an authority than the late member
for Yale-Cariboo, D. Ross, writing to the
Liberal Association in 1907, said : 'If a
suitable building can be obtained I shall
be very glad to do what I can to have all
the government offices placed in one
building under the charge of one man.
This policy has been successfully carried
into effect elsewhere and I am confident
that it can be made effective in Princeton. It has also the distinct advantage
of being such a policy as will commend
itself to the public'   Further comment-
is unnecessary.

iAYING THE FOUNDATIONS
OF A TOWN.
Tbe year 1909 was the best in a
•commercial and progressive sense
•in the history of Princeton. Large
increases in the volume of trade,
building operations and public improvements were noted. All these
are:mere processes through'which
the foundation of every town and
city must pass. Nothing more
surely points to the prosperity or
importance of a place than .the
progress made in its infanc)'. Just
as the child is healthy, growing
and well cared for, so will its manhood be vigorous and strong.
Still in its infancy and its growth
retarded for years back by the long
looked for railway, Princeton now,
makes its bow to the world and
takes its part in the western drama
of development.
If vigilance is the price of victory
so also is well directed energy the
price of success. Having once, as
residents and taxpayers, put our
hands to the civic plough, there
must be no folding of hands or idle
lamenting over what might have
been. Towns and cities do not
grow by chance or good luck.
■Ceaseless care and attention must
be given to all that pertains to their
welfare, and development. In an
unorganized community, until municipal self-government arrives,
every taxpayer and citizen is or
■ought to' be an unsworn alderman
working for the common interests
as though he had a thousand votes
behind him. Cohesion of this kind
must and will win.
As a distributing center with vast
coal   and  ore   resources   Princeton
has   unrivalled    and   unquestioned
opportunities.     Nature   has   done
her part ; it remains for citizens to
do theirs.    Some  matters  that demand immediate attention  are  the
hospital,   grading  of streets,  sidewalks  and  Dominion public building, (it is generally understood that
an auxiliary  company of the V. F.
M. Co. is organized for the purpose
of installing  waterworks  and electric light  this year).    Every sane
citizen  admits   the   necessity  of a
hospital.     Every   town  with  any
pretensions toward modern civilization has its hospital  for the proper
care and  attention of patients, rich
or poor.    On humanitarian grounds
alone there is  sufficient reason for
building a  hospital  but  there are
business reasons  also  which must
ibe considered.    As an asset  of the
town it will well repay the investment. The fact of a hospital being
in a town gives it a standing and
is an inducing factor to people to
reside here in the sense that schools
and churches are. The hospita'
proposition now before the people
of Princeton and district is worthy
of their generosity and best
efforts. The grading of streets
and building of sidewalks must be
carried out. As the town is and
always has been a large contributor
of taxes into the provincial coffers
it is our undoubted right to expect
if not all, at least a goodly proportion of them, returned for needed
road and street improvements. It
does not require any imagination
to see dust ankle deep on Vermil:
ion avenue next summer and clouds
of it whisked through the air to
the discomfort of all. In past seasons vehicles and passengers have
been so enveloped in this dust as to
be completely obscured from view
What will it be this year with'a
very heavy traffic from the railway
station ? Sidewalks along Bridge
street and the completion of that on
Vermilion avenue to the school
house and the station are absolutely
necessary. The need of a DomiriT
ion public building for the convenient and proper service of the peo^
pie has been apparent for some
time and men of all shades of politics have been outspoken on the
subject.
The initiative for the improvements above mentioned must come
from the citizens themselves in the
usual form of a "petition tojthe provincial and federal governments.
If there be no asking there oan: be
little hope of receiving. United
action will produce the desired results.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
In some of the eastern cities an
agitation has begun to stop the big
hat nuisance at all meetings. Women are to be respectfully invited
to lower their big headgear at the
doors of churches, theatres, &c,
or wear smaller hats. Why not
return to the old style and go bareheaded? I

nadian is 'dead easy' who upholds
such an idea. It is not sentiment,
but business, that knits Britain to
her colonies, then why should Canada grow so suddenly sentimental?
Only in case of decrepitude should
the children provide for the parent,
the greatest Lawgiver saying that
the paremt should 'lay up' for the
children. The British-embargo on
Canadian cattle is a fine example cf
business before sentiment. The
Monroe doctrine renders Canada
immune from subjugation or annexation by any foreign power and we
have no reason to take part in a

Apparently a large majority ol

of $150,000 has been proposed for
a naval college at Halifax as a

are also proposed. The German

clap-trap which the jingoes are

thereby to slip into power through

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Those who have time to bum never
throw anv light about them.
Great opportunities never come by
chance. All things work according to
law.
Nothing- in this world that is worth
doing is really impossible.
A lot of people are turning greyhaired
and sallow minding other people's business and criticizing their superiors
The philosophy of life is such a deep
study that mere theory can never explain
—:it must be lived and experienced.
A' man may think his misdeeds are
undiscovered. The law of compensation
silently gets busy when nnfaii or crooked
acts are committed.
Some young persons cannot give even
a lame excuse for carrying a cane.
We would all go to heaven if we could
manufacture our own religion.
Even a newspaper editor, who is supposed to be all things to all men, cannot
please himself and everybody.
You can't always teli from his shoes
whether a man is 'well heeled' or not.
