REPAIRING THE ROADS.
Geo. Goldsborongh has been doing a
. lot of necessary work on the main trunk
road toward Hedley with his gang of
skilled roadbuilders. The cribbing on
the riverside and the revetment work on
the upper side of the road near Holmes'
flat are of substantial workmanship and
will will preserve the roadbed. The
."loop" below Bromley's has been cut
out and a troublesome piece of road thus
done away. Foreman Goldsborongh will
put in a bridge at the "36" on the Hope
irail, something that travellers will appreciate. Foreman Gibson has started
work on the Five-Mile road with a, gang
of practical men in this line. G. Murdoch is building a road to his ranch by
which a much lighter grade will be obtained than bv the old route.
OPTIMISM THAT COUNTS.
,L. A. Mnnley, ot Mauley & Swanson,
proprietors of the Great Northern hotel,
was in town a few days recently on a
business visit. He has large interests in
various parts of the country, at present
making his headquarters *in Coleman,
Alberta. He repons the wheat crop at
1'incher, in that section, as averaging 45
bushels to the acre. Coalman is noted
for coal and its product, coke. Business
is good; The people are prosperous.
He predicts similar conditions, only on
a larger scale, when, the payroll reaches
Princeton. With the vast diversified resources tributary to it the outlook is very
encouraging. Mr. Manley suits action to
his word. The enlargement "f the Great
Northern to double its capacity, with
good accommodation for all classes of
travellers, proves that Messrs. Manley &
Twanson have an abiding faith in the
lown. Other improvements and other
investments will be made by the firm as
the times warrant.
LABOR DAY AT HEDLEY.
The Labor Day celebration at Hedley
was a grand success and was witnessed
by visitors from all over the district and
as far away as Spokane. The rock drilling contest proved the most interesting
event, being won by Griffin and Trimble,
30 5-16ins., $150 ; second, Bowerman aud
Cpnnolly, 24 15-16 ins ,'$50 ; third, Carlson and Waddell, 23^ inches. The last
team was unfortunate in having much
broken steel. In baseball Hedley won
5, Princeton, o; Hedley, 7, Nighthawk,
o. In the horse races Garrison's Baldy
showed a clean pair of heels to them all
and brought back to Princeton'a nice
bunch .of prize monev. Dame . Fortune
smiled on a couple of the bo}rs and all
things considered Priuceton made good
at the sports.
RECO, SOON A MINE
Trials of Patience and Ingenuity   in Developing
This Mine.
Tunnel Would Greatly Assist in De
velopment and Production on
Copper Mountain.
■ Messrs. Avery & Avery report that all
the houses on their list for rent have been
taken. Inquiries for others have been
received.
i Development work on the Reco, Copper Mountain, is ' still)) in progress after
about two years of continuous work.
The difficulties and obstacles encountered
are but a repetition, of the history of all
mining effort in advance of the railway,
Discouragement in unforseen natural
conditions of the ground that might have
been obviated with the aid of machinery
and disheartening delays arising from
various 'causes were met with in the
work on the Reco. But the perseverance
and energy with which the superintendent, J. E. McCauley, has prosecuted the
work leaves no room to doubt that a great
mine will be found if tbe indications are
trustworthy and he carries out proposed
operations. ;   -■-■
: The tunnel on which Mr. McCauley
has concentrated his hopes and most of
his labor is now driven 230 feet. The
country rock was of almost impenetrable
hardness, defying steel in a very provoking way. Good ventilation was also a
hindrance to progress.
! In another 10 or 12 feet Mr. McCauley
expects to tap the lead of the Reco which
outcropped 175 feet farthei up the moun-
tiin. Mining men and others who have
visited the Reco speak in very hopeful
terms of the prospect. Some tfiink»it
will prove to be the means of adding
much fame and substantial prestige to
the whole of Copper Mountain as a mining region.
Now that water power has been secured
the feasibility of driving a large working
tunnel under Copper Mountain as its
view presents is admitted generally. No
engineering difficulty stands in the way.
And to finance the undertaking would
seem to be a comparatively easy thing
when the mineral zone tapped is almost
sure to be exceedingly remunerative.
The tunnel proper would be 2600 feet in
length from the Similkameen river at
Ashnola and it is estimated to cost $250,-
000. The installation of electric power
and Burleigh drills would be necessary;
Of course a detailed estimate would be
made by an engineer arid all the data
gathered to make it an absolutely safe
investment. Mr. McCauley will be
pleased to enter into communication with
owners of mining property on Copper
Mountain with a wiew to getting this
tunnel completed and in operation as
soon as*possible.

OCTOGENARIAN KILLED.
;The accidental death of Henry Wood-
Wjard. one of the earliest settlers in Nicola, at the advanced age of 87 years, will
be learned with ;;sorrow by a very wide
circle of friends.^ The deceased gentleman was residing at Kamloops and while
passing along the railroad was struck
with a tram and instantly killed. At
the inquest no blame was attached to the
tijain hands . or 1 anvone. -Deceased was-
quite deaf and despite warnings continued to walk on the track until the
fatal occurrence. He leaves a large
f4mily, of whom Mrs. F. P. Cook of this-
town is a member; and who has the sympathy of many friends.
Information tp the effect that active
operations will soon be resumed on the
United Empire mining property has
reached this office within the past few
days. Th e United Empire. Co. has a large
Extent of ore and coal opened. The
object of tbe present work is, it is understood, to place the mine in a shipping
condition at the earliest date rendered
possible by the completion of the V.,V.

ACCIDENT ON TRUNK ROAD.
What  might  easily  have  been a very-
serious   accident   occurred   to  a load of'
Priucetonians returning ftom the Hedley
sports.    In    making  the   "loop"  below
Bromley's  the  curve   proved   too short/
for high speed,  overturning the heavy.
rig and   spilling  the   occupants  like  a.
"quart  of   mussels."      Nearly all were-
more or less injured,  the  most serious-
case being that of "Bobbie" Stevensorrj.
whose life was threatened by very severe-
contusions and   a dislocated   shoulder.
He was taken  to Hedley and is reported,
to be making rapid recovery.   The team
attached to the rig broke loose and ran'
full tilt into a gig occupied by Hughie-
Campbell and   Angus Damont.     Hugh'
lit like an  autumn  leaf on the ground'
but Angus was not so fortunate and received a few bruises.,   Thus were these
three old  tillicums,  all nearly seventy
years old,  thrown  out of their rigs and;
escaped with their lives.   Many friends-
throughout the province will be glad to
know that these old Cariboo golddiggers-
are still in the flesh after their untoward
adventures.
C. M. Shaw, P.L.S., has gone up the-
line of the V.,V. & E. to do- some important work for the Great Northern,
after which he has some long delayed,
work at Welldo.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One hears all kinds of reasons
and excuses for the delay in constructing the V.,V. & E. It is due
to the Presidential elections ; it is
attributed to the "squeeze" Uncle
Jim got while wrestling with the
Northern Securities and his great
competitor and enemy, Hard man ;
it is alleged that Hill wants legislation to enable him to go south into
Washington after leaving Princeton ; these and many other conjectures are given out. That some
scheme for the benefit of the political grafter will be launched at the
next session of the Ottawa house
is very probable. If there is anything a grafter will smack his lips
over it is a railway bonus and the
idea is prevalent that the Great
Northern is now only marking time
on construction for the opportunity
to obtain a subsidy as the C.P.R.
does. Meanwhile the people in the
Jimhillkameen Valley have to suffer
.for the delay.
If any place has been made the
victim of vile political machinations
it is Princeton. First, the provincial government and certain influential newspapers put obstacles in
the way of Hill and the V.,V &
E. ; then the railway briskly began
building and has now slowed down
to an almost imperceptible pace,
constructing about 80 miles in two
years and six months. At the rate
rate of progress mentioned it will
be another year before the rails are
laid this far and at least ten years
before they reach the coast. The
charter for the V.,V. & E. put a
time limit of five years on the construction of the road. It has about
two more years to run and Mr.
Hill will then have to get another
■one of those obnoxious extensions.
He should be made to live up to
the terms of his charter.
they rail at Hill and the federal
government for not carrying out
the wishes of the voter. Life in a
frontier hamlet has enough of internecine friction and hardship without being frittered away in comparative solitude and inaction while
waiting on some Wall-Streeter. If
Hill cannot build the road any faster
than he is doing then the government should take it in hand, complete it and own it, and that is what
will happen if the Conservatives
are returned to power.
The season for outdoor games,
sports and races is about closed and
citizens of Princeton are again reminded of the need of proper recreation grounds and race track.
Without a proper place for these
adjuncts of civilization there will
be little hope of making them attractive or successful. The ground
might be acquired by lease or purchase or, better still, by gift. Suitable locations near the town are to
be found, two of which are especially suggestive. The Allison and
Asp flats are the most eligible and
would save any hill climbing.
These grounds would require little
grading and are exceptionally handy
to town. There is another site in
what is known as Hitch ings' Hollow, a little more than a mile from
town. This site is a natural amphitheatre and one of the most picturesque situations around. It remains with the citizens to provide
a track and grounds for next year,
which can and ought to be done
without delay.
People in the Similkameen have
-waited with splendid patience and
fortitude for the coming of the railway. Weeks, months and years
have rolled by. in anxious expectancy. Still it comes not. Every
eye has been peering for some speck
of hope on the distant horizon.
As the thirsty traveller on the desert hastens to an oasis so do the
people here welcome any sign of
the railway's approach. Some green
spot on the desolate waste of time
has lured them on and on until in
-sheer disgust and disappointment
The Boundary Creek Times, as
is well known, is the personal organ of D. Ross, M.P. Evidently
the Times is chicken-hearted over
the prospect of its remarkable chief
being elected. It says : "Any back
east editor who doesn't know that
British Columbia will send at least
five Liberals to the next Federal
Parliament is not acquainted with
the situation." In the words of
Ross's hireling,Supt. Stevens, there
is a "veiled suggestion" in this that
he does not expect to be one of the
five. That premonitory voice within which accuses him of many little
meannesses has deprived him of
the little courage he ever had. Mr.
Ross is not deserving of victory
after his treatment of true Liberals
in respect of telephone and other
matters. In Cariboo he threw down
his staunchest friends that an eastern syndicate might have a certain
contract. If a man will ambush his
own friends it is safe to predict he
will not 'make good' for his constituents or his party. Sooner or
later he will bring the blush of
shame to his closest friend.
today, and suffers grievously, from
beer and bigotry. * * The beer
lords and the State Church parsons
are working hand-in-glove against
the government, which is fighting
for the well-being of the nation as
a whole above the miserable interests of an unscrupulous trade and a
privileged church."

MINES AND MINING.
The Boston Commercial in a review of
t e metal market does not predict 15-cent
copper until after the presidential election. Practically, there is no surplus
copper now. Within twelve months it is
expected that the demand will exceed'
the supply and the metal will be selling
at 16 or 17 cents before the end of next
year.
The Golden Zone in Camp Hedley has
been bonded to G. P. Jones, superintendent of the Nickel Plate mine for #60,000.
The Mining Exhibit at the Spokane
Fair will be a great attraction but it cannot possibly be complete without an exhibit from Princeton. Spokane is our
best and wealthiest neighbor.
