RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Grading in Progress   with a
Small Force of Men
and Outfits.
Ought to be Three Thousand Men at
Work where There are So
Few Now.
About three miles from Princeton down
the Similkameen river, the dirt is flying
on V.V. & E construction. Teams and
scrapers are hard at work throwing up
the earth to grade mark from Normans'
place to Shepherds' flat.
A tented village has been pitched on
the south side of the river near Holmes'
flat, which is the headquarters of Ericson
& Co. There are about 25 men employed
and more will be added when the work
is farther advanced.
Most of this contract is earthwork, there
being only about three quarters of a mile
ut r^ck cut. At the present rate of pro-
giess it will be six months before the job
is finished and ready for the rails.
There is not the slightest intimation of
tracklaying at Keremeos. The grade is
practically finished and unprotected as
far as Hedley and no fellow can under
stand why raillaying is not begun. Of
course its Jim's business aud his way of
building railroads, nevertheless he seems
to "get there."
The subcontractors at work between,
here and Hedlev are as follows : Larson
& Co., Freeden & Co., H. E. Richardson,
Johnson & Co., Williams & Co, and
Ericsou & Co.
'ASLEEP' ON THE'HILL.
earnest prayer for the widow and fatherless, the singing of " Foiever with the
Lord," the farewell look, and the winding procession up the hills to the new
God's-acre where the last rites were performed were all solemn and impressive.
It was the largest funeral ever seen in the
camp. Sympathy of a whole community
are extended to the bereaved ones. His
countrymen in these parts will read
with iuterest the following extract from
an English paper which was found among
deceased's effects:
" Mr George Fish.—This gentleman is
not unknown in Gorleston. He was one
of the first to assist in giving a little extra
life to the young people of this town, and
figured some years back as the assistant
manager of the Gorleston United Friends
Dramatic Aid S jciety, whose debut took
place in the St. Mary's Schoolroom, Yarmouth. He was the founder of the
Harriers' Club, and secretary for several
years of the Athletic Club. He has
saved two local lives, is well-known in
gymnastic and athletic circles, and will
be missed by friends of the same. He
has recently spent some time in various
positions in Southport. Manchester, Liv
erpool and other Lancastrian towns, and
is now on his way to Toronto in company
with Mr. H. Beddeson. We wish Mr.
Fish a long and successful career in the
new world."
Death Removes Sterling and Much
Esteemed Fellow Citizen.
The sudden death on Sunday of G.
W. Fish, late manager of the A. E. Howse'
Co., is sad and lamentable—sad that none
of his dear ones was nigh when life
passed away and lamentable in that the
sorrow of a town is laid upon the tomb
of a much esteemed fellow citizen. It
' would be superfluous to recite his many
sterling qualities for local readers—they
knew him. But the loved ones in the old
land will be comforted to know that in
this frontier town of the new west there are
many who recognize and appreciate
ihe worth of a true gentleman. Such
the deceased was. Kindly, to all alike ;
of choice language, honesty and truthfulness impressed on every word and
deed, whom to know was to esteem.
Every mark of respect was shown at the
obsequies. On the verandah of the house
he last saw the sunlight streaming in the
flower bedecked coffin was placed, beside
which Rev. Mr. Conn preached to the
people assembled   in   the street.     The
A GRIEVANCE TO REMEDY.
" At last and at length the vigorous
protests of the Similkameen Star have
prevailed and Princeton has telephone
connection."—Keremeos Trumpet. The
Star has another grievance which it will
now hammer away at until remedied. It
is the unreasonable and unaccountable
action of D. Ross, M.P., in withholding
telephone connection from the A. E.
Howse Co. Why is not the money of
this Co. as good as others who are not
denied phones? Mr. Ross is hardly a fit
man to represent the people, when, for
purely personal reasons aud animosity he
refuses to allow a phone to this Co. An
M.P. should be more dignified than to
stoop to rjetty revenge of that kind.
Wake up, Ross, from your slumbers and
do the decent thing toward this mercan
tile company.
ROBBERS KILL MIDWAY MAN.
Tuesday evening about nine o'clock
two masked men-—supposed to be the two
hold-ups who have been operating in the
district—entered C. L. Thomet's hotel at
Midway. Just as they entered the door
he reached for his gun beneath the bar
and he and the bandits commenced
shooting. Two bullets struck Thomet
and it is believed one of the hold-ups was
wounded. Thomet was 48 years old and
a native of Switzerland. He had been a
hunter and prospector before coming to
Midway and had been iu that district
about 16 years. The bandits have, so
1ar, eluded the police.
6RA1N CROP IS GOOD
Farmers will Have Full Granaries and the Quality
is Average.
Creamery and Cheese Factory have
Fine Field for Operation,
and Market.
Farmers have finished cutting gra'n,
the stacking and threshing now only remaining to be done. With the present
fine weather harvest will soon be ended
and "Hodge" is smiling at the prospect
of a generous grain yield. Owing to the
long continuea hot and dry weather with
wilting winds straw will be short, but
grain is good sample and average in
quantity. There will be plenty of oats
and wheat, hay and other farm produce
to meet local demands. Considerable
hay was left over from last year and will
be available for the railroad construction
outfits on the V.,V. & E. Grass has im
proved with the recent rains, and the cattle on a thousand hills are in superfine
condition for beef and dairy. Princeton
district is acquiring fame for the fine
quality of butter made by the farmers ;
which is largely due to the bunch grass
and the care in making by excellent
dairywives. A creamery or cheese factory is sure to be established in the not
long distant vista of time, adding another
industry to the country and proving that
this section is almost limitless in resource.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Events are Few, the Passing Throng
Goes Gaily Along.
Mrs. J. O. Coulthard and daughter,
Gladys, leave on Thursday for' Yale
where the latter 'will enter All-Hallows
Girls' School. Mrs. Coulthard expects
to return in two weeks.
Mr. Bremner drove his "bile" up from
Hedley on Monday and had a new contraption put on the duphunny by Tink
French. Our auto editor is out of town
so readers will excuse those technical
names. It costs $15 to make the round
trip to Hedley with this "bile," which is
more just now than business warrants.
Mr. Shaw's survey party came in from
the Skagit in charge of L. Mead, on
Sunday last. The party goes to Welldo
today where there are two thousand lots
awaiting purchasers when surveyed.
F. A. Howse, of the A. E. Howse Co.,
Nicola, came to town Sunday, returning Tuesday. He had hoped to see the
late Mr. Fish alive but was not privileged. Mr. Howse has cabled his father
who is touring in Scotland, to visit Mrs.
Fish and break the sad  news to her.   A
telephone message received yesterday
from Vernon hospital indicates a more
hopeful condition of J. D. Lumsden, manager of the Princeton branch of the
Howse Co.
Robert Stinson, of Vancouver, was in
town . last week on his way out by the
"short cut," over Hope mountains. He
reports a lot of street and other improvements in progress in Vancouver. Mr.
Stinson has unbounded faith in the potentialities of Princeton and vicinity and
is anxiously looking forward to the day
when rail connection will be made with
the mining camps hereaway.
Bill Scruby is building bridges down
the line and, consequently, is making
money.
Mrs. Tree, Miss Tree and Miss Hunter
were passengers on Thursday's outbound
Nicola stage. The first two named were
returning home to Dakotah after a long
and enjoyable visit with daughter and
sister, Mrs. L. Huston.
J. G. Macdonell and Frank Garrison
have gone huckelberrying on west slope
of Hope range.
Hugh Finnegan, the 'mayor' of Five-
Mile, is making extendi}* improvements
on his farm.
Rev. Mr. Conn leaves about the 9th
inst. for Winnipeg on what he is pleased
to call a 'holiday,' but what the society
editor of the Star designates as the second of the three greatest events in life.
Announcement later.
A good time is expected by those going
to Hedley to participate in Labor Day
celebration. It' is well that citizens of
the two towns should meet at demonstrations and celebrations and there fraternize in that broad spirit which eliminates and 'cuts out' much of the frictiou
in life. Let us celebrate and be neighborly.
T. J. King brought up the government
patent road grader from Keremeos last
week, the machine being intended for
use by' foreman S. Gibson on road construction toward the Five-Mile.
Harry Allison has gone to Keremeos
for a large consignment of merchandise
for local storekeepers.
HARNESS AND SADDLE SHOP.
C. V. Prosser, of Keremeos, arrived
in town last week with a harness and
saddlery ontfit and also boot and shoe-
making equipment. He represents the
Similkameen Valley Saddlery Co., which
has shops at Keremeos and Hedley also.
Mr. Prosser will attend promptly to all
work entrusted to him, whether it be the
making of beautifully mounted harness
or the building of a 17-cayuse power
broncho-busting saddle—buckarios make
a note of this and give him an order.
The shop is located in the 'old log cabin'
opposite the Howse Co's big store on
Bridge Street.   See ad. on third page.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is reported that Chicago capital is now available for the Green-
wood-Phcenix tunnel and that work
will begin this fall. This tunnel
is intended to tap the mineral section between the two mining camps
of Greenwood and Phoenix. From
the main tunnel laterals will be
driven. The cost of the undertaking will be in the neighborhood
of $3,000,000 but it will cheapen
the production of ore and thus
prove a profitable investment. It
would be a grand thing if Copper
Mountain were tunnelled in like
manner and it seems a pity that
some scheme cannot be evolved
to make cheaper mining possible in
that camp.
eral Electric, Western Electric and
Connecticut brass interests. The
demand for the metal is legitimate.
The General Electric company when
operating in full capacity, consumes
5,000,000 pounds of copper per
month. Last fall its consumption
was down as low as 1,500,000
pounds per month, while it is now
between 3,000,000 and 4,000,000
pounds per month. This will explain the increasing demand for the
metal and why the price is advancing." The price of copper is gradually ascending from 11c. last fall
to I3^c. now. It is believed that
14-cent copper is only a question of
a few days.

PRORIETOR
NOTICE.
The  Nicola   Herald  has  a bad
pain because somebody has written
an article  in the London Statist to
the effect that  Canada has no right
to.exclude  the Japs and Hindoos.
They  must  be  hard  up for something to do, out  there, when they
take  to  reading the Statist.    The
Herald  does not quote any   of the
Statist's    article,    presumably   because it's not worth repeating ; the
•Star dees n6t quote any of the Herald's  article  for  exactly  the same
reason.    When the Herald is quite
finished  throwing bad  English at
good  Englishmen  who will never
read' it,  perhaps it will condescend
to explain   who   would  keep  the'
Japs out  of Canada, if they really
wanted  to  get  in.    No doubt the
editor and his  devil would help to
defend  Spence's   Bridge   or  some
other strategic point ; the Star and
its imp would cheerfully keep guard
on the Hope trail,   especially if the
trouble  happened  in   huckleberry
time.    But  Vancouver  Island and
.the IyOwer  Fraser valley could not
be defended long by any land forces'
■Canada  could raise,  against innumerable Japs landing wherever they
pleased.    B.C. is Safe because Britannia  rules  the  waves:—at  great
expense to herself, and  none at all
to us.    Under the circumstances, it
. won't do  any  harm to let the men
that  do   the paying lecture  us a
little.    We don't need to  pay  any
attention.   Evidently  the silly season is on at Nicola.
In discussing metal prices, the
ihead of one of the leading copper
selling agencies in New York is
quoted as saying : "The recent
.buying of copper has not been by
the small consumer but by the Gen-
Princeton is as healthy a town as
there  is  in  tbe  province and it is
especially  for  that reason that  we
must be careful to  preserve a clean
bill of health.    Recently some  apprehension has been felt on account
of two cases of fever  which  have
occurred here  recently,   the first of
a malignant type, but  the infection
has been attributed to a single well
which has been closed, so that there
is  not  much  further danger.    At
the same  time  it  must be remembered that  this  is the time of year
when any dirt that has accumulated
in the dry season is washed into the
ground by the rain and may find its
way  into   wells.     Of   course  the
more water  is  taken out of a well
the better it is, and it  is  not a bad
plan to draw a dozen pails of water
every day,   and  throw them away,
before  using  any.    To prevent an
epidemic of any disease scrupulous
cleanliness must be observed inside
and   outside  of the  person.     The
daily flushing of the sewers of the
bid}' with copious draughts of pure
water are as necessary as the washing   out   of the    sewers   of a town
or city.    Too  little  good   water is
drunk  nowadays,    resulting   from
which is the fertile soil for microbes
and all the  large  family of distase
germs.     The free use of disinfectants in all receptacles  or depositories of offal is  an enemy to disease-
spreading of untold  worth.     Fly-
killing should be encouraged by the
government, as is done in the case I
of the  coyote, that  kills  chickens
and other domestic stock.    For, it
is  conceded  that  flies disseminate
disease,   and  death, among hnman
beings.    And is  not  one of them
of more value  than a chicken ?    A
bounty on flies at so much per quart
should prevent  much  sickness and
often'its necessarj' corollary, death.
With three alert government health
officials  in Princeton the source of
disease can quickly  be located and
precautionary steps  to remove it at
once taken.

Ross, M.P., has not been a.howling

MINES AND MINING.-
The supply of coke for smelters in the
Boundary is giving some uneasiness.
Smelter managers have been informed bv
the Fernie coke makers that they will
be readyto deliver coke soon, the work
of repairing the damage done by the fire
going on rapidly.
The smelter and mines of the Dominion Copper Co. in the Boundary have
been tied up two weeks for lack of coke.
The company arranged for: a supply of
coke from the coast, but the C.P.R. did
not deliver it on time and the smelter
went dark. aftfc
Only five furnaces have been in operation at the Granby. but it is expected to
soon operate at full capacity as the coke
begins to arrive from Fernie in usual
supply.
.The only mining company in the
Boundary not affected by the coke
shgrtage from the Crow's Nest Pass is
thl B.C. Copper, whose ore shipments
anE smelter treatment for the past week
ranged around the highwater mark.
