DOMINION DAY NOTES
Big Crowds But Day Marred
by Soaking Rains and
Wet Grounds.
Sports Were Best Under Weather Conditions for Years and Visitors
are Gratified.
Owing to rains and storms the Dominion Day sports were greatly handicapped.
Baseball and some of the other sports
were held on the school grounds on Vermilion Av. instead of the Princeton
Racing and Athletic grounds The first
event was a bard fought baseball game
between Princeton and Keremeos, _sthey
won the toss. This was a very exciting
gime, full of snappy incidents and bril
liant pla.. A large crowd witnessed the
game and the tver varying fortunes of
the battle received the significant root or
fan of the spectators. Princeton won,
tjie score standing 3, o. At the close of
the game and throughoi)|. rain and slippery ground hampered the sports. The
Coalmont team came down to play, but
were disappointed in having to wait for
tlie following day. The belting was
lively on the game.
The ball in the evening was a great
success, there being over 100 couples
present and both Prof. Knight's orchestra
and band conductor S. R. Gibson are
to be congratulated for the able manner
i%n which all arrangements were carried
put. The Princeton and District band
will benefit approximately $90 from the
ball.
|i*V Baseball a Leading Feature-
On'Tuesday morning Princeton played
Coalmont bnt as several of the Coalmont
players had left other good players were
substitujtejl. The Coalmont lineup was
as follows: McDaniell, pitcher; Bartell,
.catcher ; M. Dal^J^SHjSse ; T Daly, 2nd:
base ; I?. Henderson, 3rd; C. Henderson,
short stop; Horswell, right field; Kootz,
center, Rash, left. Princeton: petrie,
pitcher; Quinn, catcher; Mitchell, ist
'base; McLean, 2nd base ; McKenna, 3rd;
•;Cook, right field; Russell, left; Tobsom,
_>hort stop; Dignan, centre field. Score,
K to 7 in favor of Coalmont.
Princeton played a very good game to
isbegin with, scoring three runs in the first
.innings but fell down towards the <>nd.
Coalmont was lucky in being able to obtain the services of Tommy Daly who
was at one time star pitcher in Portland,
^Oregon, and is said to rank among professionals. The prize, $100 lies under
• protest, but whatever disposition is made
of it will, no doubt, be in accord with
honor and equity.
Spectacular Baces.
The Princeton Racing & Athletic As
sociation successfully held their first race
meeting on the new track and grounds,
situated on what is now known as Princetou Heights. Everybody was agreeably
surprised to see such a remarkable trans
formation from virgin forest to race track
and athletic grounds in such sqort time.
The heavy rains rather had the effect of
improving the track than damaging, for
its surface was crusty and smooth, yet
resilient to the touch of hoof of flying
steeds. The grand stand was packed
with the youth, beauty and fashion of
Princeton and district, the fair admirers
of the 'king of sports' presenting „ pretty
sight with the latest modes and colors
against the dark green background of
pines. The half mile of oval track is
graded and levelled and the brush and
timber cut off the center affording all
the space for future generations to witness
famous games and races.
In the freeforall race Alexcease won
first money, $75; C- Allison, 2nd, $25
The most amusing event of the day
was the slow race, won by Dell Young,
$10. The cowboy race was interesting
and was won by W. Garrison's horse, $20;
Geo. Allison, 2nd, $10. The tandem race
was a novelty and was won by Tom Tin
basket $20; W. Garrison, 2nd, $10.
Ladies' Race Very Exciting.
The Ladies' race was the leading fea
ture of the day and its spectacular effect
caused much enthusiasm. The contest
ants were Mrs. Eftnj.onds, on a large dark
bay hotse and Miss Sinclair on a wild
iron grey. From the start the grey began j
bucking, the bay leading. The exhibition of bucking continued for more or
less half way around the trnck and both
ladies showed wonderful horsemansh'p
but in the final .flinch the little grey re
covered from its bad temper and made
up for lost time by reaching the winning
post several lengths ahead of the dark
bay, the first prize, $10, going to Miss
Sinclair.
•..'.Xhete was only one real outlaw bucking horse entered in the bucking contes*,
owned by Bill Allison, and ridden to a
standstill by Tom Melvlile. This horse,
old enough toknow.better, kept on bucking down the.track and took to the timber. Other cowbpysVjtried to make their
steeds buck but there was nothin' doi _'.
Miller was first at the winning stake,
$20, followed by Holmes, $10, in the half
mile race.
Putting the Shot—Angus McDougall,
.5; 38 ft. m
Strenuous Tugowar.
At the close of the sports great excitement was caused over the tugowar, best
2 out of 3, Princeton v The World Tl e
lineup was, Princeton : Garrison, Clerf,;
Thompson, Dignan, Smith, Chester, Mitchell. Tho World: W. Jameson, J. Jameson, R. Jameson, Allison, Lewis, Marston, Wren. In the first heat Princeton
had a comparatively easy victory, but the
second was a very hard tussle, Princeton
slowly losing ground until the tremeri-
dpus cheerings picked the Princeton
team up and they recovered their lost
ground, finally having a walkover. The
Princeton team undoubtedly won both
heats although it was much disputed.
The beautiful silver cup presented by the
A. E. Howse Co., L'd, to the winning
team will thus remain iu town.
Brieflets-
The Princeton District band played excellent selections from their stand near
the judges' box. Prof. Gibson has proven
his ability to mould musicians out of the
untaught state into good players. Qf
course there-are competent and seasoned
musicians in the band who are the backbone of it but it is the student members]
who must be encouraged. The band is
to be complimented and congratulated
for the important part they took in the
celebration.
Photographs of some of the principal
events were taken by J. T. Priest and will
make handsome souvenirs of the celebration.
Not an accident nor an incident to mar
the occasion. The police had little to do
yet doing their duty.
In spite of the rain and threatening
weather the attendance "from Tulameen,
Coalmont, Granite Cree_;,^Hedley and
Keremeos was the largest yet and show 'd
a fine spirit of friendship and neighbor
Iiness—may it always continue.

METHODIST CHURCH OPENING
Tand CONCERT.
Will you kindly announce in your val.

Princeton MethSotst church. The building will be dedicated by the chairman of
the Okanagan district, Rev. Samuel J
Green, of Armstrong, B.C., at 3 p.m., followed by the sacrament of the Lord's

a distance, also local talented ministers

churches. There will be special music
rendered by Mrs. S. L. Smith and her
gifted daughters of Hedley. Mr. Daly
of Keremeos is also expected to play on
the_?ipliu. A special service will be held
in the Oddfellow|s hall, Princeton, where
there will be good music and bright singing. On Tuesday, July 16th, there will

supper supplied by the ladies of the district. At 8 p.m. a musical program will
be carried out by the above musicians
and solos will be rendered by Mrs. J. A.

collection will be taken on behalf of the
church building fund. All subscriptions
no matter how small, will be gratefully
received and acknowledged by the Rey.

JIM GONE AFISHIN*
J. H. Kennedy, engineer of construction on the V., V. & E., was"in town recently, having travelled over the line
from Hope to P'riiTwtbrf.' Tbe liue is
ready for the contractors but as Jim is
having good luck salmon fishing down in
New Brunswick it is not improbable that
construction will be delayed until he has
whipped the last scckeye from Richl-
buctoo to PaspebiaC. All right, Jim, if
you think we can't do a little fishin' too,
and with C.P.R. bait.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
J. B. Desrosiers,' builder and contractor, of Greeawrood, is in town on a business vi§i*>and will locate permanently
ort time.
The Orangemen of Princeton Lodge
will celebrate the 12th of July with a program of sports and grand ball The demonstration will be on a large scale, other
lodges throughout the district participating.
Allan K. Stuart, C.E.,of Hope, walked
into town over the Hope trail on Monday
last. He says he had a most interesting
trip in spite of the wet weather. He is
very much taken with the possibilities q.
Princeton and expects to put in a month
in the vicinity.
Miss Burpee, teacher, went to Penticton on Tuesday to spend holidays.
Eric Anderson took a run down the
line on Tuesday and will probably hear
the eagle scream on July 4.

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN
All the staff of Star being loyal and
dutiful subjects of King George celebrated the national holiday, in fact took
two holidays. Editors, reporters, bookkeepers, i rinters pressmen and imps are
only human 'clay' needing rest and re
cuperation the same as the beatifully
plumed bird with its eye of innocence
and reflected love, or as the hog which
requires a siesta to make fat. With this
explanation we hope patrons will make
kindly allowance for defects and delays
The evolution of the one manjiewspaper
is now taking place and soon we hope to
s?e linotvpes and rotary presses take the
place of the pioneer plant and the 'old
man' gi„e1'-0r<__]"_6' younger, be.ter and
abler men.
W_.B..Marks, well known in Princeton
in connection with his popular dancing
classes last winter, was in town today
coming from the upper Tulameen, where
he has betn doing assessment work on a
group of five mineral claims. He reports
good prospects for a mining boom in that
section.
Miss Ruby Howse, of Nicola, was a
visitor to relatives and friends here during the Dominion Day festivities, travelling with Mrs E. G. Warren who)was
summoned to her husband's bedside r s
the result of an accident. The passage
from Nicola was made in the record time
of five hours actual running and this
over a rough mountain road at the dead
or night. The car is a Russell-Buick driv
en by Chauffeur Howse and is the same
one reported smashed to smithereens in
a flipflop on the Jackson MerrittCoal-
mont scenic route.
R. W. Morrison, of the bank of Commerce, left last week for New Westminster having been transferred to the branch
at that city. During his residence here
he made many friends and gave every
9 itisfaction to the bank's patrons.

A READER OBJECTS.
Editor Star—Sir: An editorial in
your issue of the 19th inst. reveals the
fact that distance does not lend enchantment in regard to some of the efforts at
law making of your cousins, the sons bf
your Uncle Samuel.
You claim that our Owen bill, if passed,
will be a piece of ' class legislation,'
then, 'if a citizen whose conscience refuses vaccination or any other prescribed
remedy, resists the law he may be thrown
into jail. Thus in a country of much
boasted freedom it is possible to tyrannize
giving legal sanction to all kinds of oppression, including medical, lawyer's and
ecclesiastical trust or established church.'
You further say, 'the principle of protection or class legislation is at variance
with true liberty and that freedom which
all intelligent citizens delight in.'
Now kindly pardon this rising to explain : That possibly we are not 'intelligent citizens' enough to consider at all
freedom and liberty as defined by you.
but only pity that partially insane, drunk,

RAILWAY SUBSIDY.
Passing over the very general
criticisms made in the communica-
.tion 'A Reader Objects,' Star takes
opportunity to deny that the Great
Northern railway has ever been discriminated against by the governments of this country in the matter
of subsidy. It happens to be in
the knowledge of Star that a certain M.P. and a well known lobbyist made an excursion to the Wall
street office of the Great Northern
president inviting him to apply to
parliament for the usual bonus for
building railways. President Hill
replied that it was against his principles to ask for or accept a bonus.
For doing so he has been frequently
commended in  these -columns and
[exalted as a model for Canadian
railway presidents. His example
is unique id the history of railway
financing in this country. What
is the most objectionable feature in
Mr. Hill's railway policy lies not so
much in. downright plunder of the
people's money but in exasperating
delays in construction. Forever
putting off the day when executive
ability should be exercised, wearing out the patience and the means
of thousands of investors, he seems
ever on the verge of doing something yet waiting for the final step.
Indifferent as to the needs of the
people he toys with time as the boy
with bubbles. Although there is
nominally a new head to the Great
Northern the old master haunts the
presidential quarters and the old
precrastinating policy remains.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Democrats are as obstrepor-
ous and noisy in convention as the
Republicans, but is not the national
bird somewhat of a noisy rooster
about Independence morning.
Our congratulations, Mr. Bryan,
your 'day' is coming if you live
long enough and the American people ever recognize your real worth.

or ignorant citizen, be he rich or poor,
I high or low, black or white, who thinks
his personal liberty is interfered with if
we are obliged, possibly, with severe
measures, to restrain and prevent him
from endangering the life, liberty and
pursuit of happiness of, it may be a thousand other citizens. This principle we
apply all along down the line of careless
indifference and crime. And we are willing to pay our money to our citizens in
any of the walks of life whose duty it is
to attend to such matters. There may
be some mistakes and abuses of trust
among us. But where is there perfection or heaven, on earth, in Canada?
It is entirely irrelevant and uncalled
for to mention 'ecclesiastical trust or established church' as being our failings.
I,ook the other way for your 'intelligent
citizens' who have the 'freedom to delight in' the likes o' that. You say 'in
Canada there is no whimper of paternalism in government. Every profession or
calling is allowed to work out its own
destiny on its merits.' Where does the
money come from which as subsidy
goes into the big pockets of some of your
wealthy corporations, the C P.R., for instance.
Possibiy if Mr.  Hill  could have had
access to similar lubrication in the place
of a lot of discouragements and oppositions, your occasions in the past would
^ave been less to 'whimper' at him.
We can see how others see us, but may
the Great Horned Owl and half the spirits inspire our critics to see us right,
Wright. With wishes of the very best,
I remain your humble reader..

The Paint That Is Easiest To Apply
is surely the paint you ought to buy when there's anything
you want to paint.   M-L Pure Paint spreads so
evenly and   easily that  it   satisfactorily covers
more surface than most other paints.
PURE PAINT
Best You Can Buy
Mel
also leaves the
smoothest, glossier surface—and takes the least paint to do a good
job. Wears longest, too. Any surface* it covers
will not need re-painting for the longest possible
time. That's why M-L Pure Paint is by
far the most economical paint you can buy.
Try it. Note the clear, clean colors and the
beautiful gloss it gives. Only purest materials and skilful mixing can
make paint like that!
n^HE exceptional durability of M-L
■*■ Pure Paint is due to a special ingredient which we alone have learned how
to mix with other pure materials to make
a paint that is not easily affected by extremes of wear or weather. You get the
biggest money'8 worth in M-L Pure Paints.
Made in 47 colors for all paint uses by
Imperial Varnish & Color Co., Limited,
Toronto.
USE M-L FLAT WALL COLORS to obtain
pleasing and artistic treatment of walls and ceilings.
Best for up-to-date stencil decoration—sanitary,
washable, durable; very economical. 16 shades.
Easily applied.     Full directions with can.

Sell them Princeton Real Estate
Maki? Money out of Old Earth
'T"rHE probabilities of success in real estate speculation are in pro=
■■■ portion to your faith in the possibilities of a town or country'
Princeton has possibilities==some say her possibilities are "illimitable. It
would be a blind, unreasonable faith, for one to invest, say, in the great
Sahara desert or inside the Arctic circle. It is different with Princeton
to most .toy. ns==the position, the possibiMies, the resources all are prima'
facie, self=evident==a blind man can see them with his mental eye.
Opportunity rarely knocks more than once or twice at your door and
lightning never strikes twice in the same place. This analogy illustrates
how carefully one should exercise sound judgment in the when, how and
whereof investment in real estate. There is land for everyone if the'
other fellow does not gobble more than his share. Remember, single
tax is coming, and then land values will jump skyward. Princeton is
the center of coal, ore and placer mining. Good grazing arid agricultural
land. Beautiful climate, fishing, hunting. Two railroads-will afford
transportation. Electric light, waterworks, hospital, etc. Write the
Princeton Coal & Land Co., or better still, come and see for yourself
