GRAND TRUNK ROAD
Route now Being Located over
Hope Mountains for
Wagon Road.
Last Connecting Link in Interprovincial Road—Routes of Great
Scenic Grandeur.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., and Road Su
.perintendent Turner arrived in town Fri
day ou an official visit to Princeton district. There have been large expendi
tnres on roads in this section and it was
to satisfy a very natural desire of the
member to see that all was going well
that the trip was made. Needless to say
he found everything highly satisfactory.
The roads are in fine condition and with
the improvements in progress, together
with new roads under construction and
in contemplation, there is no doubt about
the wagon and trail transportation interests of this section being thoroughly and
efficiently managed.
The interprovincial trunk road is an
undertaking In which  Mr. Shatford is
very much interested.   The last remain
ing link to be located in this 300 mile
T_a___|j|»f -_. tnr. An    Pril_*P.__   anfl HppC,
In the selection of a route over Hope
mountains such considerations as snow-
fall, grade, mining, agricultural and
other interests to be served, have all to
be carefully weighed and advisedly
thought out. As now contemplated the
road will be wide enough at the narrowest point to permit of wagons or antos
passing. It will need to be as direct as
possible to avoid the possibility of any
expensive straightening afterwards and
to evade the competition of a possible
shorter route through Washington state.
The road must be as nearly perfect a:
is possible in a mountainous country, th
tributary or tap roads being adapted
the uses of mining camps principally. -. fa
The location/of the trunk road is very
Kkely to pa_s through the mountains at
the lowest/elevation. According to railway authorities the lowest pass is fouud
along the old boundary trail thence
down Silver Creek to the Fraser river
One feature ofTfitS" route that must not
be minimized is the remarkable scenic
grandeur of the sierra mountain range,
clad in everlasting white, with glacier fed
streams and lakelets teeming with the
toothsome trout.
The government has engaged E. Cleveland, C.E., who has had large experience in location of roads throughout the
province, to report on the feasibility of
the routes under consideration. He, in
company withT_w»k<Gibson, who has a
thorough knowledge t_f~t__r trails and
mountains passes, arrived in Princeton
Sunday from Hope and is now engaged
examining routes. The government will
not be satisfied with anything short of
the very best route to be obtained and
Mr. Cleveland, with his acknowledged
ability, will secure the very best route
available.
SETTLERS FILLING UP FIVE-
MILE DISTRICT.
As a sure indication of the growth of
Fivemile district a movement has begun
looking toward the early establishment
of a school house and postoffice there*
One of those deeply interested in the
movemet, S R. Gibson, has received a
letter from the Department of Education
asking for data, thus lending encouragement to the hope of settlers for obtaining one. There are some sixteen children of school age, enough to enlist
the department's favorable consideration
for a school building. A petition accompanied by the usual information will
doubtless be sent to Ottawa for a post-
office. The filling up of Fivemile section with settlers and also along the line
of the Kettle Valley railway is a fitting
and all sufficient answer to the statement of the rabid Saturday Sunset during election time that this country was of
little or no account. The Fivemile district is full of resources and must yet
contain a large population.
TEN YEARS AGO.
[From Similkameen Star of 1900.]
A late report from Rossland states that

Westminster Columbian, arrived on
Wednesdays stage. He will be connected with the Star office, and expects to
identify himself with Princeton's future
history.—[He identified all right, and is
ow living on a princely income from the
roceeds of real estate sales.—Ed.]
Mrs. James has lately taken over the
Granite Creek hotel and gave a supper
and dance to celebrate the event. The
music was supplied by Dan Contenay and
P. Prendergrast and was excellent.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Regarding the suggestion made
in these columns a short time ago
that the Board of Trade exercise
its influence in securing the completion of the V., V. & E. at as
early a date as possible, the Westminster Columbian in endorsing the
idea urges that all the Fraser Valley boards of trade should take a
hand in the matter. The suggestion of the Columbian is most timely and ought to be received with
favor by the boards. By concerted
action of the boards the 'subject
could be presented in a more impressive manner to both the government and the railway commission. It is a great drawback to
the progress of the whole province
to have'the' construction of the
V.,V. S-'E-'d'elaved beyond all reason, and in such exasperating piecemeals. Prompted industries largely
dependent upon; seaboard connection''are '-.-.-.red from energetic
constructive' work   owing   to  the
slow  methods of President Hill in
_   tt{V-
railway building. Some gentle
jurging on the part of the government or railway commission would
no doubt, do good and hasten the
<lay when Princeton would be five
hours' ride from the coast, instead
-of fifty-five as at present.
Lord Strathcona, ever doing some
kind and noble deed, and always
alert to promote love of country
.among the young has again shown
his sincere attachment for Canada
•by presenting a Nelson shield to
•each of the public schools for competition among the scholars writing
an essay oh some sailor subject.
The Dominion government aud all
the departments ot education of the
various provinces are cooperating
in this educational and patriotic
enterprise. The shields are real
works of art, suggestive of unity
as in the oak and maple leaves in
•each corner, the successful scholar
being entitled to hold one for a year.
They are made of copper from the
historic old ships, Victory and Fou-
■droyant, which, under command of
Admiral Nelson, won glorious Trafalgar. Princeton public school
should apply for a shield, addressing
enquiries and communications to
Rev. Alfred Hall, 64 Wellesley St ,

Foreign Sailors' Society of London,
Eng., in connection with the Nel-
:Son centenary, are distributing

The four western provinces of
Canada and nearly every state west
of the Missouri river will have exhibits of dry land products at the
Dry Farming Expo and Interstate
Fair to be held at Spokane, October
3 to 9. From Canada about 350
delegates are expected. The great
drouth all over the west during the
past summer has been a severe one
and the lesson before all these farmers is, that they must adopt better
methods of tiilage and moisture
conservation. The program is to
be of a very practical nature.
Farmers in the dry belt, including
Princeton district, will be able to
pick up some useful hints at this
congress.
The date of the next census for
Mortality, Disability and Compensation is ist June next year, which
is the same as the date for Population. It is a record for one year,
and gives the information concerning all persons to whom the schedule relates for the year counting to
the hour of midnight of 31st May,
1911. Personal description of every
person who has died in the year, or
suffered disability by accident or
sickness and has received compensation therefor is required in the
schedule, and for more complete
identification reference is made to
his family or household in the first
schedule. The name and sex of
each person, and whether single or
married, widowed, divorced or legally separated. Under the heading of mortality records will be
entered showing the month of death
in the census year, the disease or
cause of death as described by the
Bertillon nomenclature, the place
of death if it occurred away from
home, and the name and address of
the attending physician. Disability
and Compensation relate to accident or sickness and under these
heads records will be entered of the
nature of loss or injury caused by
accident in the year, cause of tbe
accident, weeks of disability due to
sickness or accident, and loss of
salary or other earnings caused by
sickness or accident. Compensation made to employees is recorded
under three heads : The voluntary
allowance of employer for lost time;
Compensation for loss of life by
accident and compensation by insurance.
The curfew law is being enforced
in Revelstoke and will shortly be
in force in Enderby. What Princeton wants is a law to stop the unearthly bowls and yells of dogs and
cats in the 'wee sma hours.'

Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copoer mines.
The metallurgist needs the book foi
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannol
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE : $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you?
