 B.C. PORTLAND CEMENT CO. PIONEERS WAY FOR MANUFACTORIES
CEMENT WORKS ARE
IN OPERATION AT
■I. I PRINCETON
A WELCOME INDUSTRY
The wheels of a great manufacturing
industry have been set in motion in East
Princeton and the hum of machinery is
heard in the laud delighting the hearts
of investors and encouraging all who
have made their homes here. It is more
than two years since the British Columbia
Portland Cement Co. began construction
of the buildings and plant that began
this week to turn out the finished product. The buildings are of most substantial structural material, stone and
cement, and their great size will afford
ample room for increase of plant to
double and treble present initial capacity.
Raw Materials Nea^
The main factory buildit^rT_K6o_434
feet; eugine and boiler house,*6oxn8;
gringing coal and drying house, 36x64;
stock house 60x200. In themain building is a large rock crusher nJqp'ch receives
the raw material from the limestone
qnarry, about 800 feet away and the shale
500 feet distant. The coal required for
steaming and iu the manufacture of
cement is taken from the mine about
1500 feet away. It is this close proximity of raw materials which ruaffes the
location of the plant ideal from an/economic view point. It is said, .and is,'no
doubt, true and open for verification
that cement can be made ftieaper at East
Princeton than any other place on the
continent. Practically there is no haulage of raw material, it literally runs into
the plant by gravity.
Erom Rock to Cement.
Fiom the hammer mill and crusher
the process of manufacture is simple,
yet carried out with perfect exactness as
to proportions of ingredients, the weighing and testiug being a matter of detail
and for private information.
A huge rotary kiln receives the powdered materials and is there subjected to
great heat, passing on to storage bins,
emmerick mill aud separator. Tube
mills reduce the cement to a required
fineness and a cooling process reduce* to
a proper temperature.
At one end of the building the raw
materials are received in.to the insatiable
maw of ponderous machines, gradually
being digested and mixed until at the
other end of the long building the finish-
s £cfjf>i_duct is turned out, sacked aud de-
gpsjigd in the stock building. Since
Jui3_Jjtabout 5 days, some #5000 worth
of cerg^nt has been made the result of
trial rSps. WhetK as with all new plants,
the machinery is settled in its designed
work and running smoothly there will
be a regular output of over 500 barrels
every twenty-fonr hours.
The engine is a Corliss', cross compound 650 h. -p. made by;;vGdldie & McCullough, Gait, Ont., and is a magnificent piece of mechanism. Electricity
for motor and lighting purposes is generated by this engine. No customers
outside of the plant can be supplied with
'juice' the generator having a full load to
furnish the works. When the railway is
completed to Vancouver the capacity of
the whole plant will be enlarged from
500 to 2100 bairels daily.
Tested and Proven Quality.
Laboratory tests of all theceinent'made
are conducted by D. Chads, chemist and
F. Budd, assistant. These insure an even
grade and strength. East Princeton cement is now on the market and may be
obtained locally for about half the price
paid for the imported article. The popular notion that cement requires ageing
is not true. Good cement can be immediately used;
]. A. Osborne, superintendent of construction, has completed his engagement
for the erection of the buildings and
plant. He is eminently fitted for the
work he has had to accomplish and has
made a very creditable showing. From
here tfe jfoes to Blairmore to erect another cement plant the present works
there being insufficient to supply the
demand. The output of the new plant
iu Blairmore is already engaged" -by' one
of the big railway companies. Superintendent Robinson is now in charge ofthe
East Princeton works.
Calgary Realty and Cement Did It.
W.J. Budd, who has a large block of
stock in the B. C. Portland Cement Co.,
has finished his contract with them and
is now turning over to the operating
officials the finished structural and installed works. He has already built several
large cement plants and is about to erect
two more. He is owner of an eight-
thousand acre ranch in Alberta, has
J,arge blocks of real estate,, lives in a
50,ooo-dollar residence, is largely interested iu seven live industrial companies,
and has cleaned up>$70o,000 cash in the,
eight years he has been in Calgary. Mri
Budd may be justly styled the - .Cement1
King' of the west. Withal he is affable
and pleasing in manner, modest, reticent'
4anas_»ming, yet strictly straight business.
COPPER SMELTER AT

rived'Jscently on a short visit from Star
City, |____., where he is engaged- in real

brothefr for 22 years.

MIKES   AND  MIXING
'Our initial outlay for the improvements now being carried out at Granby Bay will represent an investment
of $3,500,000 all of which has. been
provided for by the board of directors'
said .T. P. Graves, general manager
of the*" Ui'„nbj^__lo___^aatycr"***'This
sum will cover the cost Of properties,
development, a srpelter with .1 capacity of 2,00.0 tons daily a converter,
dan) and pover he use, a railway connecting the nine and smelter and c;e
docks. We have 1,000 men employed
now, mainly in Smelter construction
work and expect to have the new
plant in operation early in January
of next year. The permanent force
will not fall short of the same figure.'
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. put
more miners at work recently.
The Granby Bay smelter will be the
most modern plantf^Sf its kind ever
built on this continent, and it is expected to produce copper at from one
and a half cents to two cents per
pound cheaper than in the Boundary
district. According to an estimate of
Engineer O. B. Smith, the ore now in
sight in the mines at Granby Bay is
about 8,000,000 tons from which it is
expected recovery of values to double
those secured from mines at Phoenix,
B. C.
J. E. Spur in his "Geology Applied
to Mining" says: "There is no general rule as to whether veins and
other ore bodies grow richer or poorer in depth. Sometimes they may
grow richer, sometimes poorer or
richer, then poorer, then richer again.
Sometimes the distribution of val.tgs''
may be fairly equable fo consideMBre
depth. Each case must be taken op
and investigated sepaj$V-ly before
probabilities  can be arrived  at."
E. P. Wheeler, the Friday creek
mine owner, was in town-Jjjpminion
Day, leaving for his home at Conconully Wash. He is pleased to sec
the trunk road construction drawing
nearer to Friday creek as its completion means much for this camp. '"
The United Empire coal mine "is now
being managed by R. Marston.
ENCOURAGING WORDS.
Editor Star—Sir: I am much impressed with the town of Princeton and I am here to look into
the proposed new bridge which will
be erected as soon as there is low
water. Also? I am looking into the
construction of the transprovincial
highway which is progressing very
favorably through the Similkameen
J and Yale districts. This new road will
baf a great boon to the Similkameen
district, bring tourists, and will help
i_» the towns in the valley. XhQjsQp&.
wi-fr^ctSJiipleted, will be talked of
far and wide as we have the material
fn the Similkameen district to construct  first  class  roads  and  with   a
road.superintendent such as we have
we are bound to have a road to be
proud of. I have no doubt when this
portion of the transprovincial road is
completed that it will compare well
with the best roads in the country!
I am sure we do not realize the immense amount of good the valley will
benefit by this new road with its:
splendid grades and surfacing. The
grades do not exceed 8 per cent, that,
being the maximum all through-from
the Pacific coast. I am very pleased'
at the progress made on construction, and at the prosperous air of
Princeton.
Yours obediently,

CUT NOXIOUS WEEDS
Editor Star, Sir:—I would be
obliged if you would kindly allow me,
through the medium of your paper to
call tbe attention of farmers throughout the Province to the necessity of
conducting a vigorous campaign
-against the spread of noxious weeds
in the- Province. This constitutes _
grave menace to the development of
agriculture, and it is very essential
that a determined effort be made at
the present time to combat the evil
before it gets too big to handle. It is
denlorable to see in many good agricultural districts in the Province the
alarming extent to which the Canadian thistle has spread. This is one
of the very worst weeds in existence,
and probably the hardest to control;-
The following course of treatment
which should be pursued for the eradr
ication of Canadian thistle is recom-11.

branch of the Federal Department of.

ploughed deep in summer just as the
flowers open, or the flowering stems
may be mowed down and the land
ploughed as soon as the new growth
appears. As new stems are thrown
up they must be cut off with abroad-
sheared cultivator, at intervals during the summer and autumn. Deep
ploughing in the autumn has been
found useful in supressing thistles in
Manitoba. The chief safeguard
against Canada thistle and similar
deep-rooted perennials is undoubtedly
a regular short rotation of crops with
thorough cultivation. A three year
rotation including two cuttings of
early red clover for the first year followed by deep fall ploughing for hoed
crops with clean cultivation and a
cereal crop for the third will suppress
it.
For permanent pastures and wild
lands where this course of treatment
is not feasible, a plan which is followed by many with great success is
to keep the plants cut off right at the
crown and never allow them to flower.
This course, if pursued faithfully will
in a few years' time destroy this pest.
All Provincial constables and fire
wardens have again this year been
appointed agents for the department
in the enforcement of the provisions
of the Noxious W|eeds Act, and have
been instructed in case of non-compliance with notices served on owners to institute prosecutions. This
in itself, however, is not all that is
necessary. It is imperative that the
cooperation of the farmers themselves
be secured The provisions of the
l.oxious Weeds Act are stringent
enough, but its proper enforcement
cannot be effected to the best advantage unless the farmers do their
share, and see that their neighbors
take steps to destroy weeds before
they seed. I trust therefore that we
! .f.y have united action along these
lines, and that effective work will be
done this year towards the suppres-
j ion of those weeds which are proving such a menace to successful ag-
ricultureal development in different
parts of the Province.
Thanking   you   in   anticipation   for
your courtesy in inserting this letter,
Yours very truly

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The annual crop of flag incidents
is  prolific  this year of scraps and
blackeyes.    In most cases it is the
result of some crazed being loaded
with  booze  and  patriotism.     National birthdays stir np memories of
foreigners in  a  strange land and it
is little wonder  that an ardent love
fcr the  homeland  may   sometimes
lead  to  flag  waving indiscretions.
Who  hps   not  felt  the impulse to
cheer at  sight of his native flag in
a foreign land ?    It is a rational and
honorable feeling.     On  Dominion
Day in Boston, Mass., we read that
thousands of Canadians marched to
picnic grounds carrying  Canadian
flags,   and  without  molestation or
hurt.    The spirit of friendship and
true  neighborliness is thus shown.
Frothy, blatant and ungenuine patriots are often most sensitive, seeing insult where none was intended
and accusing wrongfully.

Winston Churchill says he wants
peace and wishes to end the insensate folly of building warships that
in five or six years are obsolete.
And yet he wants Canada to join
him in this senseless folly. Winston is the heaviest lightweight politician in Britain. Cut it out, boy,
and sirike for universal peace.
THE CEMENT WORKS.
Reference  in  these  columns has
I been  already made to the great reserves of water  power and coal to
be obtained  here for manufacturing
purposes.    Having the raw materials at hand for manufacturing there
is no cheaper place in the world for
establishment of industries.    Lumber,  rough  or hewn timber, are in
abundance  for   buildings   and now
that cement is made on th_ spot the
conditions  for erecting houses, factories,  stores,   etc., are most favorable.     The  cement   industry just
started in East Princeton has a very
bright future  owing  to  the great
demand for  the product and to the
.proximity of all  the raw materials.
It is an illustration of what may be
done in the manufacture of fire and
building  brick,   paint and pottery,
the raw   materials  for  which   are
also fotind here.    The present price
of cement laid down in Princeton is
about $6 per bbl., which will be cut
in half as soon  as delivery is made
by the  B. C.  Portland Cement Co.
To sum up : there is everything to
encourage  and facilitate the investment  of  capital  in   Princeton district.    The railway  companies,  if
slowly, are surely coming with adequate  transportation,   and  the big
metaliferous mining  companies are
here  in  the  preliminary  stages of
purchasing, developing and exploring  mineral properties.     Without
fear of contradiction it can be truthfully  affirmed  that  success awaits
any man   or  company with moderate means and  the necessary pluck
and energy to open up any natural
resource  or   establish  an industry
of any kind here.
Few realize the immense advantage to a locality having its own,
and therefore cheaper, building materials, its own water power and its
coal. These are essentials in building a city. All are here in abundant proportions and they are a
standing challenge  to investors to
make use of them.    Men with any

business acumen would not turn local lodge of Oddfellows an official visit

Lacrosse did not gain by the importation of several wandering stars
from New Westminster to play in
the Hope team on Dominion Day.
The purse was intended for purely
local teams of amateurs, not for
professionals who play the game
for pelf. Lacrosse does not lend
itself to tbat mercenary spirit which
characterizes some other games ; it
must be kept inviolate, pure and
the true sporting instinct preserved.
In future the sporting editor will
publish names ot those guilty of
professionalism thus barring them
from the game.
EAST   PRINCETON
Themanufacture of cement will begin in a few
weeks. A permanent payroll and a growing town
with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries nOw in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two
railways will serve transportation.

DAMAGED FRUIT
Ediior Star:—We are ex^erifm-in.'?
a great deal of trouble in deiiin;; with
th<; in. p.c liou of foreign S$»kf£p "ow
(Miming to hand which show .serious
injury from Sun Scald- many oi tne
dealers designate it "Storage Scald."
At any rate the fruit thus infected is
commercially injured and should not
be shipped into this Province, for in
addition to the fruit being unsightly,
the keeping quality is greatly impaired. The tissues soon break down
after the fruit has been unwrapped
and exposed for sale, and the con-
summer who buys such fruit must
suffer loss and disappointment.
In order to meet such conditions
the Provincial Legislature has. recently amended the Horticultural act
by adding the following subsections:
r>8a "The power of members of the
board, their inspectors and agents to
inspect and enter premises and destroy infected property shall be
deemed to extend to and include the
inspection, rejection and destruction
of trees, plants, fruits, hops hop-
plants, grain, peas, beans roots tubers, vegetables, and seeds which
have been damaged by frost or otherwise injured." (An Act to Amend the
Agricultural  Associations  Act,  1913.)
It will be seen from the foregoing
that fruit which has been damaged
by frost or otherwise injured is not
permitted to be sold or distributed in
British Columbia. Sun Scald is a
serious injury, and the sale thereof is
is prohibited. The same applies to
frozen oranges and citrus fruit' generally.
In order to avoid all contention and
disputes which may arise, out of the
administration of this law and to
prevent financial loss and disappointment to all concerned you will do
well to notify shippers and carrying
companies, respectively, that the Hor-
ticultrral laws of British Columbia,
including the amendment referred to
will in all cases be strictly enforces
in every port of entry in this province.
The British Columbia consumer,
pays very liberally good honest Canadian cash for every pound of fruit
that he buys, and is entitled to all
the protection that wholesome Horticultural Law, faithfully and impar-
tialy administered, can give him. He
has been taught to regard our certificate of inspection as a guarantee that
the fruit which he buys is all that it
is represented to be, clean and sound.
This guarantee muse be made good
at any cost. This can only be done
by the prompt condemnation of all
fruit showing such injury.
I have the honor to be,
Sir
.'■.* obedient servant

FOREIGN FLAG INCIDENT
Editor Star—Sir: Yesterday I
spent in your very cosy town of
Princeton, having enjoyed an auto
trip up the valley from Keremeos the
evening before. I claim the privilege
of a visitor in entering a word of protest against the common use of the
American flag. I saw several persons
(females) whom I would have thought
respectable were they not adorned
with the American flag alone which
act made them despicable, and could
be termed nothing but brazen effrontery, and they should be summarily dealt With. In the hope that
this will reach the eyes of some of
ihe offenders I would like tc -:_k tbem
v. hat was their reason in flagrantly
yjojajirjg tbe common law of courtesy
t'i tlie ..uintry in vvM^li they are residing and makinsr their living? If
their stay was only temporary, surely
some consideration is due the country for its hospitality. Had it been
the fourth of July I would not say a
word as I cannot conceive a person
not being endowed with the sentiment
expressed by Scott:
'Is there a man with soul so dead
Who ne'er to himself has said:
'This is my own my native land.'
Most respectfully,
HUGH  WILLIAMS.

A VITAL QUESTION
From a correspondent in the National
Food Magazine :
I was greatly interested and pleased by the article in your. November issue headed "Dietetics versus Drugs."
by Professor Rutherford—interested
in the statements and authorities
given pleased to see that your pub
lication has independence enough to
give your readers a word of truth
regarding the allopathic or drug doctors. Notwithstanding their powerful
(more or less) political association,
or machine, I was reminded of your
article today when I happened to
come across an editorial in the Paw-
tucket, R. I., Chronicle, and I thought
you might appreciate the irony of the
last two lines particularly. It follows :
"Speaking of disease, here is another deplorable confession from no
less an authority than tne Medical
Record. In spit of the army of phjsi-
cians, their discoveries, and their
hecatombs of vivisected guinea-pigs,
we may doubt, says the Medical Record whether the sum total of diseases
is any less than it was before the
medical profession reached its present
high standing. Preventive medicine
has made 'little headway,' and 'in the
opinion of some medical men diseases are on the increase.' In the
deeper recesses of our consciousness
we have suspected something of the
kind ourselves, but such heterodoxy
on the part of a layman would have
exposed him to excommunication with
bell, book, and candle, or at least
.with bacteria, serums, and antitoxins.
But v.ith the Medical Re;ord behind
i.h, we can afford to _re«p out into
the open."
No doctor who has investigated tbe
subject deeply enough to be capable
of rendering an intelligent opinion,
will claim   that the practise of medi-

Six of the most prominent militant
suffragettes found guilty" of conspiring to maliciously injure property
were found guilty in London on Tuesday, and sentenced by Judge Philli-
mofe to various terms of imprisonment, varying from eighteen weeks
to six months, with hard labor added.
Miss Annie Kenny who received the
severest sentence made an impassioned address for the defence, closing
as follows: 'I am a rebel—a rebel I
shall remain until women receive the
vote. If like Miss Davison it should
be necessary for me to sacrifice my
life, then I shall die.' 7&M

A VITAL QUESTION
cine is, or eyer has bee:_ a science,
or an exact science. Science means
"full, complete," "exact or systematic
knowledge." Where are the drugs of
fifty years ago,—or ten yoars ago, for
that matter? Are thoy not .on .tantly
changing? Is not the experimenting
or guessing going on continuously?
Has it not always been so, ever sme.
the days of Hippocrates? Has there
in all these hundreds, or rather thousands, of years been found a positive
drug specific for one single ailment?
No, not one. Where, then is the
science, or'exact knowledge of drugs?
If it is not now an exploded theory
that any drug or medicine can of itself cure, how many hundred years
longer are we to be experimented
upon before the public will cease to
furnish the subjects? If drugs are
such a good thing as the doctor
claims, why is it, as he admits, that
the use of them is lessening? If good,
why should we not have more of them
instead of less?
I do not see that Dr. Atkinson helps
the cause of medicine by bringing in
the name of Jesus, the Christ, as
"another and greater, Physician."
Jesus did not advocate the use of
drugs or medicine in any instance,
although he cured all kinds of ail-
m .nts. Furthermre. he gave explicit
directions to his students how to obtain the same results as he did but
he absolutely repudiated the use of
medicine or drugs. I should think
the line of thought brought up by
this allusion would be somewhat of
the nature of a boomerang, as there
is not a line in the gospels that can
be construed into Scriptural authority
for the use of medicines; on the contrary, there are many lines In the
gospels which go to prove that tlu
use of material means jf any kind
is orofitle.-S. It might be recalled to
lr.ind also, that Luke himself, at on \
time a doctor, gave up the practise
of materia medica and took up tho
method of Jesus, explaining that h.
was able to get better results by the
latter method.
