Direct railway transportation is vital
SIMILKAMEEN LOOKS
GOOD TO EXPERT
GEOLOGIST
MINES  AND  MINERALS.
Chas. Camsell, geologist, gave good
reason for the faith that is in hirn as to
the Similkameen becoming a much more
extensive gold camp than now, while its"
permanence as a producer is assured.
Copper and coal production on an extend
sive scale will follow the construction of
the railways now in hand. Another
silver lead nroducing section will be
added to the Slocan and Southeast
Kootenay.—Vancouver Mining Record.
I Dick Fitzgerald is prospecting placer
ground on the divide between Ninemile
and Fifteenmile creeks. He is finding
some coarse grains of gold but expects
better results at depth of the wash. He
reports little snow. Deer that came
d'own from the mountain summits a
month ago- have quite all returned, no
doubt getting better feed at height. The
woods and open spaces are full of them.
Col. Robert Stevenson went to Hedley
camp this week where he is interested on
Riordan mountain in mining claims.
Frank Bailey, M. E., is recovering
nicely from his accident and will be out
of the hospital shortly.
F. R. Weekes, consulting mining engineer for the B. C. Copper Co., arrived
from New York last week and went to
Copper mountain.
The cement works are running fnll
time and there is considerable demand
for this time of year for the output.
W. C. McLean and J. Cook are pro
specting for coal on the Princeton-
Chilliwack Coal Co's ground on China
creek.
For the year to date the shipments
ef zinc ore and concentrates from the
Slogan total 3,767 tons.
The Canadian Mining & Exploration
company next year will spend a large
amount in development work in British
Columbia.
Cheaper and better coal for Vancouver. That will be one of the many
blessings conferred upon Vancouver with
the completion of the Kettle Valley
Railway, now under construction, is the
opinion of E. A. Beeston, secretary for
many years past of the Nelson, B. C,
Board of Trade. ■ Mr. Beeston is staying
at the Hotel Vancouver while in the city
on a business trip and expects to return
to Nelson shortly. 'When the railway is
opened up' remarked Mr. Beeston, 'the
Nicomen and Similkameen coal fields
will be able to compete with the Vancouver Island mines in supplying Vancouver with that  product.   The railway
will bring Nelson and these coal fields
within 24 hours' journey of Vancouver
and then the new fields will be able to
ward off any coal famine that might
attack this city. The rail rate will not
be very high and as the coal is very
accessible in the Similkameen country
the price per ton will be cut in half
here.' That is Mr. Bee ton's prediction,
and as secretary of the Nelson Board of
Trade he is in a position to know. Besides he is in a pioneer in that boundary
country.—World.
ELECTRIC LIGHTING
^The Princeton Coa! and Land Co.
advise that the contractors for the
electric light installation will be in town
on Friday, and work will be commenced
immediately. Everything is in readiness
for them, and the light should be on
during the early part of January. The
Company state that they have received a
large number of applications for the
light, and several houses are already
making arrangements for wiring immediately. As advised last week, it has
been found necessary to revise the rate
schedule recently issued, and the new
system of rating, which will te issned
shortly, should prove most attractive.
INADEQUACY   OF   MANY   EETUEN
AIRWAYS
By Francis Glover
[From the ' Coal Age,' Jan. 3, 1913.]
In these days of modern progress,
when most problems seem so thoroughly understood, it is really appalling that mine explosions should come
around as regularly as the "Hardy
Annual." For 20 years or more, after
every explosion, an inquiry has been
made as to its cause, and the usual
result has been to place the blame on
an ignition of gas caused by a defective lamp, a blownout shot or the
negligence of someone.
Rarely has any further inquiry been
made. In looking for ultimate causes,
it is remarkable that the condition of
the return entry has not been duly
considered. For at many mines today
which have a fine equipment on the
surface and adequate haulage airways,
you will find the other ventilating passages incapable of performing the
work demanded of them without excessive resistance.
In some cases they were not large
enough to carry the air when first
driven but frequently they are large
enough but too crooked, and the air
i| much impeded in its progress. It
has not apoeared necessary to drive
them straight because, as soon as a
section is completed, the rails will be
removed. 'I&M-'
This fact not only explains why we
permit the heading to be crooked, but
also why it is allowed to become full
of fallen rock. Once the road is torn
up, it becomes impossible to clear up
the heading without excessive expense.
It therefore fast becomes full of a
mass of broken slabs of roof, through
which the air cannot find its way at
any speed.
In some  mines where  such  caves

CHRISTMAS IS IN THE
AIR: JOYOUS DAY
•f NEARING
TOWN AND DISTRICT
Arrangements have been made for
the Xmas Tree on Tuesday evening,
December 23rd, in the Oddfellows' hall.
It is expected that Santa Claus will make
his appearance that evening in Princeton
and all the children are expected to
come and see their good old friend. A
program is being prepared by the
children and the older folks are also
invited.
J. A. Freeman and Ernest Waterman
have gone to Kennedy mountain on a
deer hunting trip.
Neil McFadden leaves for Penticton
tnis week to work on bridge construction
there. His long experience and skill in
constructing railway and traffic bridges
makes him soughT'for on these structures
near and far. He expects to be absent
most of the winter.
J. A. Brown, customs broker, of Keremeos, arrived in town yesterday.
The transfer of the Tulameen hotel to
Kirkpatrick and Coulthard was made
this week, J. Malone selling his interests
to Mr. Coulthard. The deal amounted
to $15,000 and is considered a reasonable
price for a half interest in this valuable
property.
J. F. Waddell is making building improvements to be used for additional
machinery in his planing mill. .
C. L. Guest has returned from a week's
visit at Tullahard fur farm. The captive
lynx is doing nicely and has a great
appetite.
Homer McLean and Bert Russell have
been in the hills prospecting and hunting.   They are generally lucky.
B Barlow, of Keremeos, will with his
family reside in Princeton this winter.
Geo. Cawston delivered another carload of cattle foods and grain brought
from Bridesville.
The Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary at
their monthly meeting yesterday moved
a vote of thanks to Messrs. Dignan Bros,
for the use of Princess theatre on Monday and Tuesday evenings of last week
when the sums of $49.50 and $3175 respectively were made.
W. J. Hagerman, Onemile farmer, has
potatoes of which a beautiful sample indicates unequalled soil and climate, and
they cook and taste as good as they look.
The Princess moving picture theatre
is proving an attractive resort for large
audiences The program is high class as
a rule and affords instructive, as well as
humorous and romantic'love scenes.    By
some the kissing scenes may be thought
somewhat extensive. In Scotland hand
kissing is in vogue- and it looks better in
the movies. The Princess is always
popular and diverts the mind from the
'grind.'
RAILWAY POINTS.
V. V. & E. contractors are working
half force.
If the K. V. contracts talked of so
much have been let no one knows of it
as yet. Mr. Warren said when here that
a move would be made in about ten days.
Owing to an agreement made between
cont* actors in all portions ofthe province,
wages on construction work have been
lowered from $2.75 and $3 per day to
$2.50 and $2.75. As a result quite a
number of foreigners engaged in work
in and about Penticton, quit work and
left for Oroville at the beginning of the
week.—Penticton Herald.

UNIVERSAL BIBLE SUNDAY.
The idea of a universal Bible Sunday is
that on one and the same day throughout
the whole Christian world the Holy
Scriptures shall be the subject of special
consideration, not only in the Churches
and Sunday Schools and wherever people
congregate, but in the press, and that
each recurring anniversary shall be the
occasion for reviewing the position of
the Bible in the world, the progress of
its circulation and translation into the
various languages, and its relation to all
conditions of national and individual
life. In such an annual review the discoveries which are every year throwing
some new light on the recotds of Holy
Writ can be laid before the people, so
that the Word of God may be more
deeply studied as its truth is more clearly
attested to the intelligence of mankind.
The observance of a Bible Sunday has
already made substantial progress in'
various parts of the world. It has been
observed for some years sporadically in
Great Britain, the United States, Canada,
Australasia, South America and in the
mission churches of North Africa. It has-
been established in places in China,
while in Korei it is celebrated on a
national scale, and  was  last year made

 IMMORAL PUBLICITY
Editor Star—Sir : Considerable com
ment, in the papers.and elsewhere, has
been occasioned by the publication from
Paris of Sylvia Pankhurst's paper 'The
Suffragette.' This paper takes as its
object the 'exposure' of all kinds of vice,
real and supposed, and appearsMo expect
(or pretends to) that by the w(de spread
publication of such stuff—for stuff it is—
it will remedy these evils. That such
literature does far more harm to the bulk
of the people, especially the younger
people, than 'good' is quite apparent to
anyone who gives the mi t.er a moment's
thought. We have always been in favor
of equal suffrage for both sexes but we
cannot but feel antagonized toward
persons, who for purposes of self-aggrandizement and self-advertising —for such
publications can have no possible connection with the question of women's
suffrage—stoop to the depths of spreading
degrading, and almost we might say
obscene, literature under the pretext of
attempting to expose and combat vice.
It is a popular fad at present this exposure
of vice Our pres', magazines and stage
have been catering lo tne popular
demand for it, and now it would seem if
we are to believe the leading daily
papers, Sylvia has followed their lead
and taken advantage of the public's
craze for this sort of filth, dragging into
it the cause of woman's suffrage. Surely
Miss Pankhurst is goiug too far.
Yours truly,
Citizen.

UNIVERSAL BIBLE SUNDAY
From   Page   1.
the occasion of general thanksgiving to
commemorate the completion of the
Bible in the Korean language In parts
of India it has become an important
annual event, and in a number of cases
the Hindoos and Mohammedans join the
Christians in paying honor to the Bible
and its teachings.
These observances have taken place  at
various times of the year,  and  what is
now wanted is to co ordinate them into a
common date, so  that  Christians  everywhere may be one in this as they are one
in   the   celebration   of Christmas.    The
chuaches  of New  York  have for  some
years had a Bible Day on the first Sunday
in December.    In a cycle of seven  years
this would fall four times on   the  second
Sunday   in   Advent   (the  third  Sunday
before Christmas), on which the  Episcopal Church  of the   United   States,   and
the   Anglican   Church   throughout   tbe
British   Empire,   specially  refer  to  the
Holy.   Scriptures.    Such   a    conjunction
with an already   widely  recognized  anniversary  seems   to   make   this   an  appropriate time for the annual   review   of
the Bible, and this date does not conflict
with any generally  established  anniversary of other bodies of Christians.
The third Sunday before Christmas
falls this year on the 7th of December.'
Let us therefore join on that date in
exalting the Word of God.—Com.

FORMULA FOR SUCCESS
The following prescription for the 'success of Princeton' during 1914 can be
taken in large or small doses as any citizen may see fit. First of all Boost: Then
let A stand for Aspiration ; B for more
Boost; C for Courage ; E for Enterprise,
O for Optimism ; P the larger Payroll in
Princeton ; R for Right ; S for Success
Keep these letters and their meaning in
in mind and 1914 will be a year of
progress and success. P.S —Pay no attention to the croakers, critics and knockers, these never show enterprise and never
yet added to the real progress of any
town.

THE BIBLE
The intimation given in another
column for the  general observation
of  a  ' Bible Sunday j   will  be   received with   gratification  by all interested in the  scriptures and especially by those who believe in them
as a guide for this present life  and
to that abode   of eternal   happiness
—heaven.      No   other   book   can
at  all   compete  with  its antiquity
and    authoritativeness.     Histories,
poetry and   books of learning have
come  and  gone  but  the Bible remains, as fresh today as when written.      Men   may   reject its  truths,
scoff at  its  teachings,   deny  it in
toto, as tbe   infidel,   still it  is the
b x>k  of   all books.     It  holds  its
impregnable and absolutely   unique
position  because  it  unfolds life as
no other  book can—it is  life.    So
simple tbat any wayfarer  may   understand, it he be an earnest seeker
after  truth,   and   yet so deep as to
confound  tbe  mighty learned, the
disputatious   divinity   doctors lack-
iug  spiritual   insight.     Within its
pages is   the  unfailing prescription
for sickness,    sin   and   death,   for
every evil, sorrow and poverty.   As
a mere book it outruns any in world
wide circulation, 1,200,000,000 copies having been  already distributed
and the   work    continues    in  the
hands of some  eighty  Bible societies.     No   person,   however   poor,
need  be  without  a   copy, for it is
without   money   or   price   to them.
Founded on absolute truth the Bible
is thoroughly scientific and demonstrable.     Jesus   was  the   greatest
scientist   who   ever   lived   for   he
proved all his works and he said to
those who believed on him that they
could  do  the  works  that  he did.
Take the  Bible  out  of the world,
what follows ?    Nothing to inspire
to loving  deed, no hope of eternal
happiness, no meeting of dear ones
gone, no  aim beyond the petsshing
things of time, no   Star   to guide
across life's troubled days and dark
nights,    savagery,    life    a  blank.
Heathen or pagan   lands reached a
certain  height  of civilization then
stopped,     Under    Bible   influence
they are  in the way of eternal progress and  the  more abundant life.
The mother saying goodbye  to her
boy gives her dearest kiss, loving
tears and presses the Bible to him
knowing that he is safe listening
to its voice. All that life is worth
living for, all that the thing called
'death' is supposed to unveil, all
that is enduring, immutable, lasts
forever, worth knowing, is contained
in this Word of God. Interpreted
•nd appreciated in the light of divine spirit it eliminates, fear, doubt,
anger, hatred, jealousy, pride, cov-
etousness, all fleshly lusts and
pleasures, making of man a new,
healthy creature. It solves every
problem of life when followed and
demonstrated, asking of no one to
blindly accept its teachings without proving them. Living the life
of the Master the healing power is
given as promised. This power,
dormant through centuries of unbelief and trust in 'other gods' ot
matter, is again active and will uproot the errors of mere form and
ceremony, pharisaism. Scientific
Christianity is what the people
and the mam from Missouri want.
It 'shows' them faith by works, renews physical strength, dispels
the horrible nightmare of a molten,
sizzling hell, without lessening the
decree that sinners shall be repaid
to the uttermost farthing for all
their guilt. This would be an
empty world without the Bible and
that christian science which demonstrates, proves and makes practical
its teachings. Let be not only universal 'Bible Sundays' but Bible
Wednesdays and every other day of
the week. Let men sincerely and
reverently converse about the Bible
wherever they may congregate and
at all times, for its truth is priceless and beyond all compare.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Of all the remedies suggested for
the high cost of living no one has
touched on the reduction of the
bill of fare. High living is responsible for many ills, including a deflated purse. Back to the simple
life, simple foods, beats high prices.
Plain mush, a cup of hot water and
the blessing is an old Presbyterian
breakfast, soup and an oaten cake
or two for midday, 'parritch' and
beans for supper. This fare may
not suit high livers and high kickers but it will certainly reduce the
cost.
Retrenchment all along the line
of finance has deadened speculation
and enterprise all over the world.
This spasm of economy and extraordinary caution will have some
effect on Christmas trade. Whatever the result may be it is hoped
Santa Claus will have enough to
make everyone happy.
Emperor William generally has
some trouble on hand. Now it is
the elder boy, who gives promise
of being as obstreporous as the 'old
man.'

INADEQUACY   OF   MANY RETURN
AIRWAYS.
From   Page   i..
have occurred, it has been customary
to break up the rock into smaller
sizes with dynamite, so that it will lie
smoothly on the floor and give the
air an opportunity to travel without
obstruction over it. But in many
mines even this is not done, and the
airways not being used for haulage,
traveling or piping, and so not used or
open for inspection fill with rock, yet,
because the airways are not explored,
the reason why the air is hard to
move it not easily apparent.
A larger water gage is used and
much of the air is lost which would
otherwise go to the face. The practice of leveling the rock by dynamite,
to which I have referred is dangerous
and not to be encouraged,* because a
body of gas in a gaseous mine might
come along the heading at any time
and be ignited by the open shots.
At a colliery in England, of which
I was the assistant general manager
for a long time, the output for the
last 30 years has been from 2000 to
3000 tons per 8-hr. day. The depth of
the lowest bed at the shaft is about
2250 ft., and as the present workings
are about 3000 ft. from the shaft bottom and the seam is dipping 1 ft. in 7,
the depth from the surface is about
2680 feet.
The bottom seam is very gassy and
at different times had been ignited at
most of the adjoining collieries, but
at this particular mine during the
whole period of 30 years, not the
slightest mishap has occurred. Mues-
eler lamps were used, and this light,
while not perhaps one of the best from
an illuminating standpoint, is more
than ordinarily safe, because it goes
out when held a little out of .the perpendicular. Thus, lamp glasses are
not often cracked.
No shotfiring was allowed while the
men were in the mines, and the rules
and regulations were strictly enforced.
All coal dust was removed from the
main roads and the auxiliary gangways.
But I do not attribute the safety of
the mine to any of the above conditions and safety regulations. I have
no doubt that occasionly a defective
lamp had been used during the 30
years, and that some shots had blown
out. Its safeness from gas explosions
was .due to the efficient and systematic
way in which the mine was laid out
and had been worked from its commencement, to its splendid airways, so
designed and maintained that any gas
which was liberated speedily found its
way to the surface accompanied by
sufficient air to dilute it.
During my employment at this mine,
one of the overmen and myself were
sent to a near-by colliery, which had
been working about six years, and
where they had all the latest "tackle."
We "went to inspect a fine endless rope
haulage, which had recently been installed. On the surface, the colliery
was well laid out, and there was a
fine ventilation fan.
But when we got down to the bottom
of the main haulage incline, we noticed traces of gas. In the workings,
we found quite a body of it and, suspecting the cause, we inspected the return airway and found it not all that
it should be.' Some three or four years
later this mine exploded and killed
between 200 and 300 men, and everyone seemed to wonder how it happened, for the mines in that. district
are not subject to spontaneous combustion.
It takes two things to cause an explosion, the fire and the fuel. If you
remove the fuel, the explosion cannot
take place, even if the fire is applied.

TASTE  IN MUSIC
Reginald de Koven comes to the
front of the hustings with the remark
that the popular song of today is
immeasurably better than its forerunner of a generatiqn ago. The
opinion may be authoritative, but
then Reggie happens to be one of the
foremost music butchers of this period, so that it's just possible he may
be cutting a chop off a favorite rib. t
Not having any musical critic of
international reputation within hailing distance, The News doesn't feel
exactly competent to slam the theory
of the gentleman with the duitable
name, but judging from the labels
pasted on the things that sell for
music nowadays, they don't appear to
stack up more than half way to the
titles of the hits a generation back.
Viewed from an aesthetic standpoint, it most certainly seems that
the name, "Silver Threads Among the
Gold" has it over "The Calico Rag,"
calico being an ordinary, kitchen apron sort of stuff and silver strands
intermingling with gilt suggesting
something classy. Then compare
"Itcha Ka Bibble" with "Juanita."
The former, which is one of the recent noise fruits from the musical orchard, sounds more like a corn salve,
or a cure for' the mange. On the
other hand "Juanita" has a soft,
moony, refined mushiness about it
that is bound to catch the fellow or
the girl who prefers holding hands
behind the palm bank to tangoing
under the tungstens. Then again
stand "Sweet Alice Ben Bolt" up beside "Casey Jones." Nobody would
deny that Casey is a grand old name
without running the risk of having a
miniature home rule affair on his
hands, and there are too many Joneses for any single person to take a
chance at criticising that handle, but
at that "Casey Jones," as a cover
description, lacks the drawing room
perfume which "Sweet Alice" exudes.
In the old days the "Swanee River"
seemed to do pretty well at supplying
ttie demand for moisture in music
while "Home, Sweet Home" had a few
friends and "When You and I Were
Young, Maggie" appealed to the then
risinsr generation, but nowadays that
sort of melody doesn't get even "cof-
.f^e and—" for the man who writes it.
The modern popular hit must have a
start like the exhaust of a racing auto.
Once under way it is supposed to hop
and skip a few lines, stop in jerks
like a poodle with the hiccoughs,
change time once or twice after the
fashion of the rookie squad in the
summer militia camp and wind up
with a rush or a slide that leaves the
operator fashed and the hearers deaf.
But then, after all. Reggie de Koven may be Tight and if stuff from the
musical junk heap like "Everybody
Loves a Chicken" .can be transmuted
into collateral for banking purposes,
his argument holds water on the basis
that a song's value is judged by the
foin it puts into a composer's right
hand trousers' pocket.—New Westminster News.
