HOPE GRADES EASY
Chief Engineer States that no
Great Iptfffculty Exists
in Mountains.
Grading Well Advanced and the Rails
Coming Along—Night Shifts
I'LVi" E on Duty.
Chief Engineer. Hogeland of the. Gt,
Northern recently stated at Vancouver
that he had two,'survey parties at Work
in the Hope mountains and he was sure
a revised survey would secure a grade of
one per cent on westbound and two per
cent on eastbound traffic. He said there
was nothing insurmountable about the.
Hope mountains, as some people supposed.. >"fi Eg
A' bridjje^on jtoe, y.iV, & E. between.
Keremeos and Orovrlle was destroyed by
fire on Monday. A train in attempting
to pass over it while burning caught fire,
no serious damage being done.
Night shifts are at work on some of the
larg^cnts to prevent any possible delay
to tracklaying. The traclcis reported to
be two days ahead of schedule time.
BOAgiDSW TRAJ)E REPORTS
UNSATISFACTORY.
The annual reports of the Vancouver
and Victoria boards of trade have been
received. They contain a lot-of information about their respective cities and devote several pages to the far away gold
fields of Ingenicka and the north. But
the Similkameen, which is only 150miles
from Vancouyer, has vast resources,' and
is, by the law of natural trade route
tributary tq  both Victoria and .Vancou-
.  *K(. '':■ >
ver, receives no attention whatever. It
is this self-sufficieEt air of public bodies
.and daily newspapers at the coast which
tend to alienate the interior districts
from Vancouver and Victoria. In the
struggle which is now going ojn for the
development! of the Similkameen and
the early railway connection with the
seaboard, a little outside .encouragement
. and attention would be^appreciated and
remembered. This cold indifference will
drive trade»frQjp the coast toothet places,
even thoug§ they be foreign.
KNIGHT OF QUILL SEES AND
DOES THINGS.
J. P. McConnell, 'Bruce,' of the Saturday Sunset, and-Wife, arrived yesterday from Vancouver via the Hope mountains. Mr. McConnell is one of the
leading journalists of the -province and
-in his bold and fearless way has done
much to rectify grievances and wrongs.
He wields the only untrammelled pen iu
Vancouver, exposing .graS^and all other
ills,   political,   social and commercial.
In recent issues he is making good by
exposing fallacies with reference to railway construction across Hope mountains
and by actual reconnaisance of some of
the passes he is in a position to ward off
the effects of ah antagonistic press element who favor C.P.R. monopoly. The
Sunset is a free lance and a most welcome instrument in tbe cure of public
ills.
ATTENTION  DIRECTED  TO
SIMILKAMEEN.
R Fitzgerald arrived back from Spokane last^week where he had gone for a
short holiday. He had manyvinquiries
about the Similkameen and particularly
about the time the railway would be at
Princeton. ..'.Fitz' is n<>t the man to let
the opportunity slip for doing a little
immigration work, so he impressed on
all. his hearers the advantages of this
countrv for homemaking.and investment
He met quite a -iiuinber of Princetonians
down there-, ^and they all seemed to be
'floating high.' Of course they were not
up'in balloous but simply shootiug the
chutes, and.other innocent amusements.
Mr. Fitzgerald o wns some good-free mill-
ing propositions on Granite Creek; at
present he is pj-ofepectirig on trie Whip-
saw. " 0   '
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
As an illustration of the desirability of
Princeton as a place to live in over forty
teachers applied for the vacant position
in the puplic school. Applications from
various parts of the continent, from Cambridge and London university men and
from M A's, B„A's and/life certificated
persons all over Canada: ^
A. Faulds, M.E., Nicola, ...was recentbjr,
at the North Fork coal mine, takingsamr.
pies and inspectiug the workings..
Charley Carfson arrived back from the
coast last Wednesday where he had been
holidaying. He reports good times and
many travellers, the tourist trade being
exceptionally good this year. Princeton
looks good to him and he will settle down
and make a fortune here. He thinks the
Canadian exhibit very good at the A,y •
P. and spent several days viewing the
whole exposition.
J. W. Whiteley, provincial organizer
of the Loyal Orange Association, delivered an address last night in the I.O.O.F.
hall on the 'Principles of the Orange
Association and the" Necessity for Its
Existence.'  Ther^ras a good attendance.
The Presbytery of Kamloops will meet
at Armstrong, B.-Cf,; Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. Rev. Mr. Conn
[will leave Friday to attend. Devotional
exercises may be arranged for during his
absence on Sunday.
W. S. Wilson has gone to the south
fork of the Tulameen to do assessment
work on his mineral property which he
hopes "to see shipping before long. I .   .
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Though an  , off' Year Crops
will Average well in
this Section.
Large Number of Teachers Apply for
Princeton Sohool—Telephone '*&*_
Exchange Here.
Ernest Waterman, resident manager, of
the V.F.M. Co., arrived back from the
coast last Saturday and reports that the
cities are'ih prosperous condition. He
has engaged a superintendent for the
coal mine and will begin producing tonnage soon. He attended the A.Y.P. and
speaks very highly of it.
E- P. Galliac, a Spokane mining man,
was in town last week and has been examining mineral properties in this^ec^
tion with a view to purchase and operation. He thinks this town is beautifully
and handily located. He has not seen a
country .with such a variety of minerals
as are found hereabouts.
W. T>Atherton, provincial fire warden,
was in town Saturday on official business
No serious fires are reported. Cool, dewy
nights have done much to prevent fire
from spreading, although the ground is
very dry.
Miss E. Pauline Johnson, the celebrated Mohawk poet-entertainer, with
Walter McRaye, impersonator, may give
Princeton one of theirtfffique entertainments in the latter ttrft of September.
J. A. 'McAlpine, Keremeos, with his
brother-in-law, Dr. McColl, of Tilbury,
Out., was in town Monday. Mr. McAlpine is chief of the commissariat on railway construction and was in quest of a
house. He expects to move here soon
along with other officials.
Mr. Kern, a tramping printer speaking
five different languages passed through
recently, westbound, over the Hope
mountains. Being a great lover of nature
he took this route because of its scenic
beauty and the fishing.
Dominion parliament is expected to
meet about the 18th November.
FRUIT  AND VEGETABLES
REVIEWED.
If there are any skeptics who doubt
the possibilities of soil and climate in
Princeton district a trip out to One and
Five Mile sections, to Wolf Creek and
Ashnola or a look at Hugh Hunter's
garden, Maplehurst, will convince them
that there is no foundation for unbelief.
In the latter garden may be seen citrons,
corn, pumpkins, tomatoes, besides the
coarser vegetables. Here potatoes grow
to perfection as to quality and in yield
the ground seems to almost burst with
their number and size.   Other roots are
equally prolific and small fruits in great
profusion may be seen. With spacious
lawn and new ornamental fence Maplehurst will then have assumed some of the
stateliness of a conntry seat.
Down on the Westwood farm the fruit
trees are looking healthy and there-is
good assurance of the success of the
orchard. There will be a small percentage of loss this j-ear, but on the whole,.,
considering that this is an off year all'
over, the promise of this orchard is excellent. Mr. Nathan, who has charge of
the orchard, has a fine crop of potatoes
of good quality and yield.
TELEPHONE EXCHANGE FOR
PRMCETON.
Thanks to a little pressure and some-
earnest agitation for recognition of the
rights of Princeton, the telephone ex—
'cjhange is about to be instilled. Under-
Foreman Woodburn a force of men ar
rived on Saturday to erect the poles and-t
otherwise complete the exchange. It:
will be a great convenience for snbscrihjrj
ers and place Princeton on equall footing
with other towns. Since Minister Pugsley has had his attention! ~>direetedi to ttie
needs of Princeton he has lost no time
with the appropriation made'available by
recent session. It is hoped a sum will be
placed in the appropriations for next year
sufficient to enable Copper mountain and
Ashnola being supplied with telephone
connection to Princeton.
CUSTOM OFFICE FOR POSTAL.
..PACKAGES.
A customs office for postal packages
has been established at Penticton with
Mr. E. O. Atkinson, postmaster, in charge-.^
Packages addressed to Penticton coming
through-.the mails from other countries
will, therefore, be cleared at this point
instead of at Vernon as in the past. .
The establishment ofittis office is the
direct outcome of a yfsit in June by W.
Marchant, of Victom, Dominion Inspector of Customsy/The Penticton Board of
Trade must, however, be given the credit
for previously pressing upon the Department of Customs the need of the office.
When in Penticton, Mr. Marchand assured the Press that he would recommend the establishment of. this branch
of the customs service. .     >\-.\
Here is another step forward and,.another year or two hence should see the
establishment of an office embracing all
departments of the service. Join the
Board of Trade and help in the advancement of your town.—Penticton Press.
[Another instance above   afforded  of
the _use of  boards of trade.     Customs
and other facilities for public use aud
convenience may be obtained for Prince- "
ton if the people want them.   Join tut-
board of trade and pull for the one great '
end of building up Princeton and district—Ed.]

EFFICACY OF PRINTER'S INK.
While it is undoubtedly true that
Princeton and district have merits
in mining and other resources which
will command the attention of capitalists it is not to be inferred that
citizens may  sit idly down with
folded bands and expect outsiders
and the newcomer to do all.    It is
not enough   for   the capitalist  to
know that this is a promising field
Sot investment.    He must be incited,   inspired,    persuaded,    convinced that now is   tbe  day of opportunity which, if neglected, may
never  return.     Other   towns  and
districts are competing for the capital that Princeton is hoping for and
it often happens there is not enough
to go  all  around, so  some locality
ihas to go without.    It is a fact that
some   men    are   gifted salesmen,
others drive custorrersaway, and it
:is the same with towns and districts
as   with   individuals.     The  town
making the  best presentment of its
resources  and  opportunities is the
one to first  attract  the attention of
capital.
This is an age in which printer's
ink is all powerful. No large and
■ successful business can be conducted
or reared without its aid. No enterprise dependent upon public patronage can be floated or operated
-without advertising. New towus,
such as Princeton, must first have
as a means of publicity a live newspaper. It is the western way to
plant a newspaper wherever a town-
site has been laid out and the competition is keen to induce investors
to embrace the varied opportunities of these respective towns. If
.any place is to keep abreast of the
times or pace with aggressive and
goahead neighbors it must support
a good newspaper as well as make
use of the ordinary means of advertising in booklets, pamphlets
and other original methods of distributing information. It took a
mountain of newspaper and other
publications to start the wave of
immigration into Manitoba. The
Dominion government, Canadian
Pacific Railway Company, towns,
land companies and individuals
spent an incalculable sum of money
and very earnest effort in convincing people the world over that the
'Great Lone Land' of the Northwest was not a frozen, barren and
inhospitable country to five in.
The fruit of all that effort and
money spent is observed today in
one of the greatest treks of human
ity that the world has ever seen.
See tbe development in miles of
waving grain, railroads, towns,
cities and capitols. But tbese did
not materialize until tbe earth bad
been literally plastered with printer's ink.       "' -"-.*.
The resources of the.Similkameen
are undoubted and its merits proven
by many. The 'goods' are here
and ready for delivery. It is our
dut}' and yours too, to convince,
persuade and induce the capitalist
to invest. It can be best done
through the medium, of-the press
and the use of printer's ink.   '
NOTICE.
BRAINS, SCIENCE, MONEY.
All the Vancouver papers contain very minute notes   of the sayings and doings of the big railroad
officials  gathered there during the
past fortnight.     These   Titans of
the great railway systems which are
knocking at the door of Vancouver
for admission  are  among the leading railway experts  and represent
the brains,   science and money  to
be used in^building up-a huge terminal  system for the Great Northern,   V.,V.   &  E.,   Grand   Trunk
Pacific, Northern   Pacific and possibly the  Canadian  Northern.    In
this combination of interests there
is surely enough potentiality to prevail on the good  sense  of the,City
Council of Vancouver to grant them!
necessary  facilities  for  a joint terminal.    If the Star may be permitted  to  offer  a  suggestion  at this
juncture   it  would  be   to warn the
City  Council  of tbe   danger of an
obstructive policy to favor the C P
R.. which has always  looked upon
Vancouver as a  sort , of reserve, or
preserve.    It would  be the essence
of folly to deny  any reasonable request for a terminus  merely  to appease the  hungry octopus that has
already  been    given  $200,000,000
by the people of Canada.    If Van
couver  realizes  or  appreciates the
importance of maintaining a friendly
attitude toward the Similkameen it
will encourage  by every means in
its power the connecting up of the
unfinished portions  of the V.,V. &
£. and the acquisition of a suitable
terminal.    Progress, not hindrance,
and equal privileges to all, should
be the unvarying principle guiding
the Council in its treatment of railways.

the Chief Commissioner of Lands for a license to
