Be careful to say nothing that may be the regret pi a lifetime.
In variety of resource, in climate and scene, in hunting and fishing, Princeton district cannot be surpassed—V.,V. & E. railroad now
building on outskirts of t:>wn—Payroll must came with the operation of coal, iron, copper and placer mines—rJ40 miles to tidewater.

PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1909.       "1$2 a Year in Advance
NEW COAL COMPANY
Property Contains Bituminous
and Semi - Anthracite
Commercial Coal.
Located Near Princeton, Along Railway Line, B g Outcrop, has
Immense Tonnage.
The following from the Nelson Daily
News shows that the coal   possibilities of
Princeton basin, embracing some twenty-
six square  miles,   are  practically unlim
ited in tonnage :
" A company with the title of the Oso-
yoos Mining Co?, Ltd., has been lately
formed to iaite over the group of coal
properties about 4)4 miles west of Princeton in the Similkameen valley. The
officers of the new undertaking are W
Gosnell, president ; S. M. Brydges, vice
president ; I. G. Nelson, treasurer ; W.
Waldie, managing director, and W. E.
Truesdale, C. W. Busk, Dr. F. E. Morris in, S. M. Brydges.^LG Nelson, and
W. Gosnell, dirirctors.
. The property owned by this company
consists of about 1920 acres of land.
The capitalization of the enterprise has
been fixed at $750,000 in 1,500 000 shares
<<f 50 cents each. It has not yet been
definitely decided to place any of the
stock on the market though it is possible^
that some part of it may be issued latei.
The following particulars are gleaned,
from a report by Alexander Faulds,
M.E.:
" The property is situated between the
Similkameen and Tulameen rivers and is,
as above stated, about 4)4 miles from the
town of Princeton. The north end of
the company's land is connected with
the Princeton wagon road, ancTthe Tulameen river cuts through one end of the
properly and shows a very definite regularity in the fine exposures of exceedingly well bedded coal seams. About a
quarter of a mile from the trail previously referred to a branch trail leads up
Findley creek, where a huge outcrop of
coal is exposed. Considerable drilling
has already been done and there is every
evidence that the property is exceedingly
rich in coal of a high grade.
" Borehole No. 1, drilled to a depth of
863 feet, passed through 17 seams of coal
with an aggiegate thickness of 50 feet 6
inches. The thickest was 9 feet while
the records demonstrated that, most, if
not all, of the workable seams are within
300 feet of the surface. Another borehole taken to'a^dferjrirbf about 1000 feet,
at the 687 foot level passed through a
seam 10 • feet in thickness. Near the
southeastern end of the propertya borehole put down by Alex. Sharp, ME.,
showed an aggregate thickness of coal of
4-4 feet, the best seams being reached at
the depths of 523 and 603 feet with a
seam thickness of 9 feet and 7 feet respectively. The indications of this seam
point to its running into the Osooyos
property and it is intended to make borings for the purpose of testing this theory
as soon as the necessary arrangements as
to machinery have been crmpleted All
indications point to a regular series of
seams throughout the whole property
available for economic mining, as such
coal seams are generally found in well
defined areas such as have been preserved
from denuding agencies hy their sheltered positions among the olden rocks.
" Alex. Sharp, M E , speaking of this
property, says : 'These deposits are ten
times as extensive as those of the famous
Wellington section. The upper seams
are semi bituminous, the middle bituminous and the lower seams semi-anthra
cite coal. The seams vary in thickness
from 5 feet to 9 feet and are of about the
right thickness for economical working
I regard the measures as very valu
able.'
Mr. Fauld's estimate of the quantity of
coal lying in the pioper.ty,,.from the ind -
I cations already discovered and ignoring
any other seams of commercial importance, is 38.500000 tons. Allowing for
loss in working, etc., an output of 250.-
000 tons per annum could be maintained
for 120 years. The estimated profit is $1
per ton. With regard to the value of the
coal it is seen from a table in Mr. Fauld's
report that tjie. Princeton coal contains
8.20 per cent. asnTas"~compare'a with 9 40
for Nanaimo aiid 1490 for Rosslyn,
Wash. The quality ojF jthe coal generally is stated to be equal, if not-superior,
to most of the bituminous coals of Pennsylvania. Compared with Cardiff coal
the Princeton variety with regard to
moisture evaporates 12.6 of water per
pound as against 10.69 for the Englith
eoal. With regard to transportation the
property is admirably situated as it is
now certain that 111 the near future the
V ,V. & E. railway will run a track which
infill,probably.pass alongside the Osoyoos
mines."
BACHELORS' BALL$
Hours Glide All Too Swiftly—Enjoyable Time for Guests.
The Bachelors' Ball last Friday night
was an eminent success from every stanc* •
point. Many regular ball goers state
emphatically that the B.B. was the best
yet and. much credit is due to those responsible for it. The music by Messrs.
Garrison and Simmonds gave satisfaction
to all and the floor manager, S.iGibson,
performed his duties with his usual
verve and acceptance. Patronesses Mes-
dames Waddell, Marlow and Waterman
made everyone at home by their charming courtesies and attentions, while the
Reception Committee, Messrs. Lums.den,
D. O and C. O. Day, Ross, E.Thomas
and Willarson bore  their onerous duties
with' 'consummate tact and politesse.
Caterer Crisfield again proved himself a
chef of excellent taste and the specialist
who 'built' the cream puffs certainly was
a gastronomic artist. Mr. Brooks of
Tulameen gave a humorous character
skit with violin and jig which stirred up
the risibilities of^he more than 50 couples—he is $n old time minstrel whom
all hope to hear again. Everybody says
the B's are 'all right' and hope,they (wi}l
do it some more. The finances wer,e
more than equal to the strain so the generous B's bonussed employees for the
occasion. Tulameen was largest represented from distant points, Hedley falling off somewhat and Keremeos also
owing to threatening weather and the
absence of^'fair lnna.'

BANK COMMERCE.
Annual   Report  Optimistic and Encouraging—Large Profits..
The Stai has rereived the annual report
of the Canadian Bank of Commerce up
to 30th Nov., 1908, which shows that
this great financial institution with its
vast system, of agencies and monetary
ramifications in all parts of the world is
in prosperous condition. Profits to the
amount of 11,627,332.78, resulted from
last year's business.- These figures are
eloquent of progress throughout the
country, keeping in view the fact that
there are some twenty o,t.her banking
establishments in Canada. What quota
of those profits Princeton branch contributed the report does not state, but it
may reasonably be inferred that" the
President is well pleased with the layout
here or he would say so—he never even
mentions Princeton. The President predicts good business for 1909 and more
profits. Well, with the railway into this
town the bank is bound to get a boost as
well as other people. With new bank
premises the agency here will be well,
equipped for the good times coming.
PROVINCIAL ESTIMATES.
Some of the items brought down by
the government last week in the estimates are striking and of considerable
interest to the taxpayer. For instance :
$250,000 for a new courthouse at Vancouver seems a very large sum arid $121,000
for a new hospital for insane shows the
necessity for prevention of lunacy and
the importation of the mentally weak.
The appropriation for new roa.ds in the
Similkameen, $60,000, looks good in view
of the necessity for opening up new
country to wagon traffic. Okanagan receives $80,000 for new roads and Dewd-
ney $55,000.
R. B. Broadbent is collecting mineral
exhibits for the A.-Y. P.
J. H. McMullen of Fernie has been
appointed iuspector of provincial police
under Supt. Hussey.
Regular meeting of the Board of Trade
will be held on Monday evening at 7:3a
in the court house.
Bert Bryant returned last week for a
short visit after more than, three years'
absence. He has been railway contracting in vatious parts and is now'having a
brief holiday. Princeton 'looks good' to
him and he predicts good times for the
whole district. He says that Mr. Baldwin, formerly located here, is now chief
engineer of a coast line.
■ Dell Sykes is making good progress on
his dwelling house.  "
. Avery & Avery have sold the Bealy
lot on Bridge Street on which it is proposed to erect small buildings suitable
for offices or any business.
T. Lavalley has moved  into his new 1
house on Hillside Ave. j^» i
A very large cougar was found dead on
Welldo last week, its position indicating  -
that it was about to leap on its prev when
death in a mysterious manner overtook '
it.    Mr. Lawrence,  who discovered the
animal, describes its position  as indicat- .
ing a supreme effort.Jts fore legs being
outstretched full  length, while its hind
legs were bent for a spring.   The body
evidently became suddenly rigid for there
it stood in the attitude described.     It
would have made a famous snapshot but
the beautifully mild  weather at, Welldo
causecr  decomposition and the carcase
collapsed soon after discovery.
Thos. La valley, recently of Portland,
Ore,, Is visiting""1 with his parents here
prior to resuming his studies in Chiro-
Spinology, a new process for curing dis- i
ease without drug or knife. On graduation he expects to open an office in
Princeton! ifti J. Lwalley, his brother,
enjoys a large practice in Chiro-Sptnology
in Portland.
Out of 104 cars of tracklaying material

THE UNIVERSITY SITE.
The location of the British Columbia University is the next problem to be solved in the establishment of this necessary institution.
The government, to relieve themselves of a duty they ought to perform, have unwisely left it to a commission of prominent educationists
in eastern Canada. In the location
of such an institution three essential things must be considered, viz :
healthfulness, convenience and climate. What knowledge or experience have these learned, 'wise men
of the east' of local conditions in
B.C. which make them better able
to j udge of the best location for our
university ? In any case it is to be
desired that this institution will not
be located away at one end of the
province, like the parliament buildings, the penitentiary and insane
hospital. Without any selfish motive whatsoever the Star is honestly
of opinion that Princeton fills all
the requirements for a university
site. It is one of the healthiest
towns in the world, its climate as
near perfection as is possible on
this mundane sphere, and by the
time the building could be erected
it will have .railroad connection
east, west and south. The coast
climate is not suited for students
it being heavy and dull, and for
nine months in the year is not
available for exercise and outdoor
recreation. Then the scenery here
is of the more inspiring kind for
students, nature itself conspiring to
lure the student into the realms of
poetic fancy and Divine adoration.
In all likelihood a mining school
will be a department of the University and in this important branch
Princeton offers unexcelled facilities for study and research in the
varied mineral deposits at its door.
It is not yet too late for Premier
McBride to recall his premature decision to appoint a commission of
eastern 'wise men' aud himself select Princeton as the roost healthy,
central and convenient, and climatically fit place for the University in
this province. Mr. Shatford, M.P.
P., could, no doubt, give further
reasons why the institution should
be located here.
sale of trout under three pounds in
weight, and catching of trout under eight inches in length, many a
table will be deprived of this tasty
and healthful food. Instead of
such drastic regulations the gov-1
ernment would better serve the people by devising some means of
keeping lakes and streams plentifully stocked and replenished so
that there would be trout for everybody ad libitum. By charging a
small license fee the expense of
building and maintaining a hatchery would be met and a plentiful \
supply of trout at all times assured, j

Princeton, B. €.
The   bill  before   the   Commons
introduced by Minister Aylesworth
which deals with rakeoffs and com-J
missions on  government contracts!
and purchase of supplies generally,'
is a move that will  be commended
by all  honest people.    It has been j
shown by recent investigation that)
tips and rakeoffs are quite common]
among public servants and it is the
aim of this bill to put an end to thei
dishonest   practices.     The   public!
servant who takes a tip in the per-,
formance  of his  duties  is  already;
bribed   to  do something he should
not  and  favor  the donor.    When
the tipster wants a  particular favor
and  large  contracts  are concerned
then he gives a commission  on the
deal, providing the servant  secures
him   what he  wants.    It  has been
discovered that  large corporations
have been guilty  of bribing a government  official,   requiring him to
falsify   returns   that   the   country
might  be defrauded.    Even members  of parliament  are  not  above
suspicion of accepting  tips.    Some
of them after serving a term in parliament are able to live in height of
fashion, without occupation or visible  means of support.    The  only
deduction  to  be  made  is that the
country is robbed that certain legislation  may   be  furthered—in   the
case of bonusses  this  is especially
true.    Now all  this crooked worki
is to be severely punished and stopped by the Aylesworth bill.

Editor Star—Sir: In a late  number
of your paper you pleaded for local news.
If part of that furnished under the heading 'Fivemile Fodder' be of the sort j'ou
wish, then I do not  think  it can be said
■th'tt the Star   manifests  much  love for
good taste or even fair play.   An epithet
used to describe a pass on Onetnile creek
is also meant, it is well known, to caricature a person.    Will you  in fairness give
that person a chance to  reply and to resent what  he cannot help feeling is an
insult?    If so, please  publish tlm letter.
It is well to furnish interesting local news
but to  foment  ili  feeling between mem
bers of the community by printing scur
rility like that referred to will never popularize   the   Star   or   any   other  paper.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Happiness is the result of a real desire
to make others happy: Also, to be virtuous is to be happy.
Death often results from, loss of self
control; bad habits slay many millions
every year.
The home of a peace loving man is
turned into a hell by a scolding wife.
The dog we feed and pet will sometime
turn on its master and patron. To help
some persons invites their contempt and
abuse—such is ingratitude.
If you covet riches then flee contentment, honesty, charity and every virtue.
Tongue wagging is a disease readily
cured by the ducking stool.
The intellectual guage of a company
is the tone of its conversation.
Deep water is not riled by throwing
stones in it—only the shallow are highly
sensitive.
-Patience indicates wisdom.
"'Knocking' is the weapon of the weak,
■the shield of the crafty.
