COLLECTING EXHIBITS.
R. L. Broadbent, of the Geological
Survey Department of mines, is at Nelson, gathering specimens of ores, etc.,
for the A.-Y -P. exposition at Seattle.
After the exposition the specimens will
be placed in the new national museum
at Ottawa as a permanen display of the
mineral resources of western Canada.
The Princeton Board of Trade, like
other boards in B. C, has appointed a
committee to receive samples, but the
samples are not coming in as they should
Vit.
Mr. Broadbent will visit the Boundary
country next, and expects to be in
Princeton about the beginning of next
month. All samples should be in the
committee's hands before he arrives. *
RETURNED TOURISTS.
Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Howse arrived
home Monday after about nine months
©£ European travel. They thoroughly
enjoyed the trip and, many friends will
be pleased to know, have been benefitted
physically by the continuous changes of
scene and climate. The tour included
all. that was of deeper interest to travelers in Europe, Egypt and the Holy Land,
the latter two countries having to be foregone the pleasures of a visit until a special tour was arranged. Both tourists
were glad to breathe the free air of the
west once more, which they would not
exchange for the musty, smoke and fog
lUden atmosphere of the Old World for
any consideration.
RAILWAY RUMBUNGSlLOCAL AND GENERAL
ATTRACTED THITHER.
Br. Lazier, recently of Moosejaw, Sask.,
arrived in town Sunday and will remain
to follow the practice of his profession.
He has had considerable experience in
the west, covering a large portion of B.
G. and the territories. It was, therefore,
not at all singular that he should meet
severaUformer acquaintances here whom
he had not seen in years, He is much
impressed with the possibilities of Princeton and district and came here believing
it to offer the best opportunities of any
frontier town in the known world. He
will cast in his lot with other citizens and J
identify himself with the progress of the
town He is a prominent Freemason,
athletic, and palron of outdoor spofls and
pastimes. The Dr. is a graduate of

Heaps   of Tracklaying Material at

Yet Driven".
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., has bought
a lot on Westminster Av., Vancouver, for
$15,000. Five years ago this property
was sold for $3,500.
The number of Orientals in B.C. on
January 1. was 38.285 ; of these 17,229
were Chinese, 5,131 Hindus aud 15,848
•Jipanese.
Premier McBride has decided to submit the question of 'local option' to a
plebiscite vole so that toe desire of the
electorate of the province may be ascertained.
Princeton has been taken, captured,
not by an enemy, but by our solid old
friend, Uncle Jim. His forces are encamped in, around and about the town,
a forward movement having been made
last week. Dirt is-flying from the different cuts into the earthworks over which,
sooner or later, puffirjg aud snorting, the
low, rumbling tread «f the iron horse
will echo up and down the Jimhillkameen
valley.
A recurring report is again revived that
a big push will be made on construction
as soon as the spring opens. No right-
of-way has been bought west of Princeton as yet. The coking coai on North
Fork of Granite must be tapped viathe
Tulameen.
Such has been the unceitainty of railway construction for the past seven years
that the Star hesitates to make any forecast when the rails will be here, prefer
ring to let the horoscope of time tell its
own unerring "tale of delay and slumberous methods. The rails ought to have
been here seven years ago—1they ought
to be here in less than seven months.
Piles of tracklaying material are accumulating at the end of the track, Keremeos, and a move westward is expected
any day. The grade is ready for steel as
far as Hedley. Two bodges in that
stretch are the only foreseen obstructions
to progress. In the latter part of the
good old summer time a man with his
ear to the ground may possibly hear the
train rounding the canyon curves, but—
In the interim people are beginning to
arrive in Princeton ahead of the railway,

THE FINK SMELTER.
• E. P. Wheeler, who has a rich copper
property on Friday Creek, has discovered
molybdenum in the Mineral Hill district,
Washington. He takes great interest in
a new process smelter, the Fink, which,
he is convinced would be suitable for
developing the mineral resources of this
section. It has been successfully tried at
Garfield, Utah. It is claimed that this
process, which is the "invention of Edward Fink of Milwaukee, Wis., will work
a complete revolution^ smelting copper

A dozen eggs weighing 1^ lbs. is the

by the Penticton Press. The English
standard of eggs is ten to the pound.
One and three-fourths pounds to the

7)4 ozs. above the standard weight. If
chicken ranchers and hens would cultivate size a little more consumers would
have less kick at the small, "wizened up

J. O. Coulthard went up to Granite
Creek last week on mining business and
incidentally took in the dance at Tulameen in the Otter Flat Hotel. It was
a great success and it was unfortunate
that a counter attraction" kept reveral
prominent Princetouians from taking
part in the gaieties.
It is reported that Jim Hill is making
inquiry for business property on central
part of Bridge Street. What be wants
to do with it has not yet transpired but
it is presumed he will again embark in
the candy and news vocation.

Bill Scruby when last heard from was
heading for Princeton via Osoyoos, Coyote Coulee, Wild Horse Pass and Five-

* It is very probable that brickmaking
will be a live industry here next summer
the number of proposed buildings requiring more or less brick in their completion. It is fortunate, therefore, that a
plant owned by Messrs. Coulthard & Gow
is ready for operating on a scale sufficient
to meet all orders. For septic tanks,
sewer and water pipe the raw material is
here in any quantity.
Bill Thomas is erecting a residence
on two acres of ground he purchased
from J. O. Coulthard recently adjoining
the Allison homestead east of town.
Beit Irwin returned last week from a
visit to Toronto and other eastern points.
Contrary to some prognostications he
came as he went—single and blessed.
He was glad to be back in Princeton,
away from the hungry and unemployed
multitudes of the large cities—here there
is no poverty and everybody 'chews' well
and regularly. What is taken as a strong
prognostication of Mr. Irwin's intentions
and love of home life is the fact of his
clearing ground on Kenley Av. on which
he will erect a 'cottage for two.'
ENCOURAGE DEVELOPERS.
J. E. McCauley is now running adouble
shift on the Reco, Copper Mountain,
giving steady employment to eight men..
He has supplies for several months on
hand and looks hopefully forward to uninterrupted development work for the
coming spring and summer. Mr. McCauley deserves to uncover a great big
mine for the enterprise and stick-to-itive-
ness he has shown. Being a man of
action and one who 'does things' Mr.
McCauley has a horde of critics and
knockers, but he keeps right on 'sawin'
.wood.' His wages bill alone is probably
more than all of his detractors combined
will ever be worth, besides he patronizes-
the stores with large grocery bills. He
is rather to be commended and encouraged, by these means inducing more men
like him with capital to come into the
country.

. The Board of Trade is to be congratulated on the success attending
its efforts in securing the removal
of the obnoxious duty on coal both
in Canada and  the  United States.
A few details have  yet  to  be considered  by  the  legislators of both
countries but of the final passage of
the measure removing the duty  no
-one seems to have any doubt. With
•such encouragement attending the
efforts of the Board it would not be
impertinent    nor   unreasonable   to
suggest that  its  influence be exercised   in   another   channel  where
grievous  mismanagement  and  incompetency cause the public to suffer much annoyance and loss.    Ref
erence  is  made  to the public telephone line, which   the people own,
and which is controlled by the Department of Public Works, Canada.
The Board  being   the  only public
body in this section which  apparently has any life it is in a position
to  command  redress  by  a proper
.presentation of facts  in connection
therewith.     By    inviting    specifio
charges to be -made~attested by afE-t
davit  the    government   would  be
bound to make the radical changes
necessary  in   the   iuterests  of the
public.    Thus the Board would become the medium of righting wrong
aud   make this    telephone line a
public convenience instead of, as it
is now, a public nuisance.    Certain
it is-that no private company would
tolerate the gross incapacity of its
superintendent   or   the negligence
and discourtesy of lesser menials in
its service.    Let this line be run on
business principles,   accessible during stated hours  for ordinary messages and for emergencies at higher
rates, absolute secresy of all transmissions, prompt  deliverance of all
messages    and   calls,  sound  proof
rooms or stalls for conversation and
punishment   of eavesdroppers, ar.d
discourteous  servants, then it will
be able to report profit instead of
loss at the end of each year.    It is
a long   time since Princeton was
promised a telephone exchange as
a sequence of the  necessary  number of subscribers being  obtained.
Why  this  exasperating  delay,  or
why was the promise made if there
were no likelihood of its fulfilment ?
Under these trying circumstances
the most ardent advocates of government ownership of public utilities are dumb as oysters.    It was
this telephone muddle which largely
accounted for the ignominious defeat of Ross in Princeton and in
other places along the line. Urf^fss
remedy is made this telephone line
may yet cause"~the defeat of the
minister responsible for its conduct.
Or, upon investigation of the system upon, which it is operated, the
peculations and perquisites in con
nection therewith, it is not doubted
that enough to cause a ministry to
topple may be unearthed. Meanwhile the owners of the line, the
people, have to staffer-, the  superiii-!

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Almost thre,er"quarters of the in-j
mates of the ±5rrli3h' Columbia insane asylum are foreign born. This
means eitheJ that foreigners are
more liable to go crazy than Canadians or that people outside this province are imposing on our charity
by shipping friendless imbeciles to
British Columbia for the taxpayers
of this province to. support. In
either case it would be well for the
Provincial Government to inspect
foreigners from the East as those
from other countries are inspected.
The time to keep undesirables out
is before they come in.

NOTICE.
\
The thought of having Princeton
incorporated as a towu or rural
municipality is one that often occurs to everyone who believes in
Princeton — that ,is,^o every reader
of the Star. It will come in time,
of course, and will be bailed as a
sign that Princeton has cast its
swaddling clothes; that it is no[
longer merely a town with a future,
but one with .a great-, and growing
present. But the time is not yet.With
our present population, any benefit
that might come from the privilege
of handling our own taxes would
be counterbalanced b3' the expense
of management. Reeve, councillors and clerk, especially the las*,
would cost more than they would
be worth to us just yet.
SIXTY D.kYS AFTER DATE I inrend to
apply to the Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works for permission to purchase the following
described property, situated 011 the Tulameen
River one mile below Granite Creek.
Commencing at a post marked S. W. Corner,

DRY FARMING.
Series of Articles,  Beginning  with

From the Grand Forks Gazette, which
has secured the services of a practical
farmer of many years experience; the
following observations regarding dry
farming are copied :
' First thing in the spring as soon as
the frost is out of the ground and before

DRY FARMING.
may not be necessary to harrow every ten
days or two weeks providing the ground
is harrowed dsrectly after a rain, particular care beihg taken to get over all the
ground before the surface has become
dry.
During a dry hot spell it is necessary
to examine the ground often to see if a
cruet has formed under the mulch. If a
crust is found it is necessary to immediately doubld disc to break the crust.
This method produeed a conditson .last
year that durirg the driest and hottest
time two inches below the surface the
soil was so wet that unless the cultivator
teeth were well polished the soil adhered
to them.
While there can be no definite rnles
exactly when to cultivate it is well to
bear in mind the following:
1. That ground harrowed, disked or
cultivated directly after a rain before the
surface has become dry will hold the
moisture much longer than at any other
time.'
2. If the ground has a lot of weed
seeds in it, harrowing about every ten
days'will kill practically all the seed*
that germinate, and there ought to be no
nacessity to use the hoe.
3. If a dust mulch is formed and the
weather is extremely hot and dry, a
crust is apt lo form under the dust mulch
which needs to be broken up as soon at
found.
