No danger from deadly gases burning Princeton coal.
LKAmmn
The right kind of faith in a town is not of the 'do-nothing' sort.;
Land of promise! Land of hops! | In the strong hearts of thy people, | The miner lured by hidden wealth, | Boundless wealth still undiscovered.
Dreams of future greatness rise       Where the love of country lies.       Gold and diamonds—precious ores;     Where the mountain torrent roars.

EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton, Jan. 28 —A petition is
being circulated requesting that a post-
office be opened in East Princeton. Already a large number of signatures have
been obtained and no doubt a postoffice
will'be established at once.
__. H. Davey, of Salmon Arm,  B. C,
has bought two lots on Sth avenue and
will build soon.
The cement spur is all ready for the
laying of the steel
J. P. Thornber, of Summerland, B. C ,
recently bought a lot on 7th avenue and
intends to build.
MINES AND MINING.
■ Voigt camp is the scene of much mining activity. The B C Copper Co is
pushing on development andhexploratory
work and the results are said to be more
than satisfactory. Renewed life and faith
in Copper mountain is manifest and the
time is fast approaching when owners of
mineral properties will s_ll on a reason
able basis and contribute to the general
output of ore.
George M. Gibbs, a mining broker of
Vancouver, and others, including Henry
K. Owens, of Seattle, and James D
Sword, a'mining engineer, who has been
a resident of British Columbia for many
years, are planning the formation of a
C >mgany to establish and operate a plant
iu or near Vancouver to m'anufactu c
iron and steel. \The properjyi which was
located and secure__hy Mr. _>word, is on
Louise island, one of The Queen Charlotte
group, and includes nine claims, which
are adjoining aad which cover approximately 400 acres.
The ill effects of the prolonged coal
miners' strike are fast disappearing and
business is reviving rapidly. The output
of the Crow"s Nest Pass Coal Co., is now
the largest in the history of the company.
At Coal Creek alone  the production  is
between   3,000   and   4,000   tons   daily
Michel camp is   working half time, but
No. 8 mine, it is reported will be reopen
ed shortly.
RAILWAY POINTS.
The bridges are all expected to be fin*
ished between Princeton and Coalmont
by the loth of Februarj.
During the year 191*1 the Canadian
Pacific railway established 41 new towns
in the prairie provinces of Manitol a,
Saskatchewan, and Alberta. This year
with the large number of new branch
lines and extensions, it is probable that
the railway will establish more new
towns.
The C.P R. will double track its line
from Vancouver tc Hammond and from
Hope to~L(j*n_)iif_.
The question of the hour in Hope is
"Will the building of the V. V. & E
railway be begun this year?" The ques
tion can be answered authoritively only
by the executave head of the Great
Northern railway company. Possibly
the matter will be mentioned during the
present session of the legislature. Certainly all indications are favorable.
White's appreciation sale begins next
Monday morning.   Don't miss it.

TAX COMMISSION REPORT.
The report of the royal commission on taxation has been made
public and its sweeping recommendations will, no doubt, meet with
general approval by the taxpayers.
When the commission was here
one witness strongly denounced the
poll tax and the unfair method of
assessing all wild lands without regard to distinctive values. The
commission wipes out the poll tax
and will have wild lands assessed
on a valualation consistent with
equity and fairness. The suggestion made to the commission when
in Princeton that individual wedth
should not exceed $50,000, over
that amount being subject to confiscation by tire state, seem to have
been tacitly agreed to  by the adop
tion of a supertax on ail in excess
of that amount. Considered from
an economic viewpoint the commission has rendered a great service in
that it has freed the poor of chafing
tax burdens and placed them where
they will be least felt ; from just,
moral and socialistic standpoints
tbe benefits will tend to minimize
hardship and discontent. Following is summary of recommendations:
At Victoria on Monday last the legislature received the report of the royal commission on taxation which sat -in Princeton on Saturday, 14th Octr. last. With
the consent < f the legislature the report
proposes to abolish the poll tax ; the personal property tax and the tax on im
prcvements ; to. increase the exemption
.on incomes to $1500 with $200 additional
for each child uuder 18 years, and an
additional $1500 where the income is de
rived wholly from agriculture ; it pro
poses the readjustment of the income tax
with a supertax on incomes above ^50,
000 ; the readjustment of succession
duties with an increase in the case ef
large estates ; a reduction in the coke tax
from 15 to 10 cents per ton ; a thorough
reassessment of the province with periodical reassessments and an increase in
the staff of assessors. It recommends
the assessment of wild Jand at its actual
value and anticipates a possible reduction
in the rate of taxation all round after
new and complete assessment rolls have
been prepared.
SCIENCE AND INVENTION.
One-Thousand Foot Ship Is Ordered.—It is stated by a high official of lie
White Star Company that  an order  has
been definitely placed with Harland &
Wolff, Belfast, for the construction of a
ship of the ''Adriatic" type, which will
be one thousand feet in length. The
vessel will be driven at 18 knots by a
combination of reciprocating engines
and turbines. She will have a ratio of
beam to length of one to ten, and therefore her breadth will be 100 feet If the
ship sails to this port she must dock at
South Brooklyn, where alone are piers of
sufficient length to accommodate her.
Telephoning From England To
Switzerland.—The American consul at
Birmingham reports that the completion
of a new submarine! cable between Eng
land and France has resulted in the sue
cessful telephonic transmission of messages between Great Britain and Switzerland. Satisfactory commercial conversations are now carried on between England and Geneva, via Paris and Lyons,
and with Basel, via Paris and Belfort.
:s_9__or4rs
The Endurance Op Spanis_9_Ior3es
—The American consul at Jerez de- la
Fronteia, the most noted center for horse
breeding in Andalusia, ascribes the well
known toughness and endurance of the
horses of that region in part to the dim
ate, but principally to their feeding on a
rich wild clover, called "zulla," which
grows only in tlf ."province of Cadiz, and
which is claimed to be the fineSt food in
the world for horses. It is never culti
vateii bui grov s wild, to a lieigth of 3 to
4 feet, preferring the same chalky or
clayey scil that produces the famous
Jerez, or sherry, wines.
CEMENT FURNITURE.
Some time ago the startling announcement was made that  Thomas A.   Edison
was working on  a scheme  for "pouring
concrete houses," in other words, that he
planned to set up forms for a practically
complete house, and cast the house in
these forms by pumping them full of
very fluid concrete mixture. Thus, in
about 21 days, which is the time estimated
it would take for the complete house to
be cast, not only would the walls, floors
and roof be in place, but even decorations, cornices, but bath and laundry
tubs and plumbing.
While this scheme Las not yet fully
materialized, Mr. Edison is making considerable progress with it, and in the
meantime has conceived the idea of building furniture of concrete, for use in bis
concrete houses, the advantage of con.
crete furniture lying in its cheapness.
He has already built a sample piece of
furniture It is a phonograph cabinet,
finished with white enamel and gold
trim
The harsh grain that we associate with
ordinary concrete structures is missing,
and the cabinet compares very favorably
with expensive wooden cabinets. The
cost of this cabinet is but #10. Mr. Edison explains that this will not be the
telling price, and he does not venture to
name the store price of the cabinet, and
he has no idea how much the middle
man may require for his share of tbe
profits. In order to test the ability of
this piece of furniture to stand the rough
handling of freight men, he recently sent
the furniture to Chicago and back.
He explains that it is not necessary to
have a white finish on all concrete furniture, but that it may be stained to look
exactly like any kind ot wood. When
Mr. Edison reaches success with his concrete houses and is able to build them for
$t,o6byHe[expectsto be able to completely
furnish such a house with concrete beds,
tables, etc., at about $200.

HfFORMATION WANTED.
^__bout twenty years ago, a gentleman
/from New York was hunting with Indians
in British Columbia. They took him to
a deer lick which was well known by
them, and he was induced lo take a
•sample of the deposit back to New York
with him. It was analysed and found to
contain salt, whi_b_ the^Indians thought
_>__~me_icine. The New vortc gentleman haTUeen dead some years, and the
locality is unknown. The deposit is a
brown earthy material, and will no doubt
be found on a sibehill where is it protected by a covering of clay or sandstone. As the deposit is highly soluble
in water, it is probably in the dry belt of
British Columbia. An easy test would
be to weigh a pound of earth-and put in
water. The water should take np the
salt in the earth and leave a residue
equal to one quarter of the original sample. Any information which would lead
to the discovery of the deposit will be
rewarded by the payment of the sum
of $500 by Chas. F. Law, Box 116, Vancouver, B. C.

Iy: "If I could save the money I spend
in advertising, I have common sense
enough to do so But I am not only In
bnsiness now, but expect to continue in
business several years longer, and I value the cumulative effect of my advertising salesmanship. If our product was
all sold until 1913, I would still continue
adAertising, because I believe in creating
a waiting list."

The Town ol opportunity
The rails have been  laid  into  the town and Coalmont is now the new
terminus,   the  base   of operations for   the  next   forty miles of railway
building.
Before six months have passed there should be a payroll in Coalmont of
between   350  and  400  men : This  means population, which naturally
means good business.
IF YOU ARE WISE YOU will  invest in a little Coalmont real estate
now while the choice is still good.
Don't let this opportnnily slip  along  with  the  others  which have got
past you.    Write for our circular and  price list ; a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
POULTRY ASSOCIATION.
The British Columbia poultry association closed its second annual meeting at
a well attended banquet last Thursday
with speeches reviewing a successful year.
Cooperation had been found to work out
well and addresses given under the au
spices of the provincial department of
agriculture in different parts of the province were much appreciated and pro
duced good results. A number of associations were formed during the past year
and several applications not dealt with
were now on file. Affiliation with these
new associations imposed a financial bur
den on the British Columbia association
which it will be the duty of the incoming
board of directors to provide for It
would appear that the government would
be asked to make a larger grant for the
promotion of the poultry industry. In
support of the request from the association it can be pointed out that tbe production of eggs and other poultry products has doubled within the past year.
