RAILWAYS TO BUILD
Coquihalla Dispute   is Settled
Awaits Signature of
Railway Board.
Construction is a Matter of Few Days
in Starting; will be Pushed
to Completion.
Vancouver, B.C., July 15—Through
the officials of the civil government an
arrangement whereby the Great Northern
• and Kettle Valley lines' the latter crossing the Canadain Pacific railway will
jointly operate a single line of track from
the summit of Hope mountain to Hope is
being arranged. This will mean a friendly settlement of the dispute between the
livals which for months past have had
applications before the Dominion railway
board for approval of their respectivie
routes down the Coquihalla river. It
will obviate the building of two separate
lines and thus save several millions of dollars as the construction work is of a very
expensive character Both roads are de
sirous of building, separate lines, the
Kettle Valley line having priority of lo-
cat'oa, leaving the worst side of the river
to its rival. The earring out of this, program, however, would involve several
sections on the lower reaches of the Co
quihalla, a serious drawback on -the-
mountain line from an operating standpoint. The Great Northern was willing
to make a compromise by building its
own line parallel to and on the same
grade as the Kettle Valley line. The belief is expressed that the single track line
will answer all traffic requirements for
many years to come. The basis of settle
ment now about effecte 1 will probably be
ratiffed by the railway commission durHTjf
its coming weste n tour. .-!.•>!
Sir Richard McBride addressing .the
Victoria board of trade recently said that
he had been assured by Louis Hill, chair--
man of the Great Northern railway company, that the V. V. & E. was to be pushed to completion at once. It is now midsummer, 1912., Some seven years ago
since work began on the 140 miles of line
now completed. At that rate of construction when will the next sixty miles to
Hope be finished? N it a shovelful of
„dirt, so far this summer, has been lifted.
Yes, the work needs some pushing.
j. M. Doyle, who was in Princeton last
Friday and who has been for some time
connected with the Great Northern railway as assistant superintendent of the
Marcus division, has been appointed superintendent of tuat division to succeed R.
C Morgan, who"resigned to go with the
Canadian Pacific railroad as superintendent of terminals at Fort William. B.
Lungtry,  formerly   trainmaster   of . the
Monta_'a division, and for years connect
ed with the Great Northern in various
capacities, will succeed Mr. Doyle as assistant superintendent of the Marcns division. Mr. Doyle will make his head"
quarters at Marcus. Mr. Langtry has
been connected -with the company for
about fifteen years and has been assigned
to special duty on branch lines and various other divisions during the last three
months.

BATTLE  OF BOYNE
Demonstration the Largest Yet
in the District—Speeches
All Good.
Orangemen  Commemorate Historical
Event with Procession and
Special Services.
CONCERT A_ID SUPPER
The pretty Methodist church in East
Priuceton, now fnlly dedicated by splen:
didlservices and sermons on Sunday last,
was the scene of an enjoyable concert
and supper on Tuesday evening. There
■was a large attendance, rigs and busses
conveying all who desired to be present.
The ministers preseut were Rev. S. J.
Green, Armstrong, B. C; Rev." Mark
Jukes, Princeton; Rev. J. McKenzie
Keremeos; Rev. G. A. Wilson, Coalmont;
R. G. Stewart, student missionary, Piinceton; and Rev.T, A Osborne, the pastor.
The speeches were, as a whole, excellent,
embracing prophecy, humor, religious
philosophy, spirituality and business,
all emphasizing the importance of religious worship anl the need of righteous
living. Rev. Mr. Green made a strong
appeal for support of the church and enlo-
gized the Rev. Mr. Osborne whom he pronounced as a great mau among the people, one who had already accomplished
much and would continue to do so. As
chairman of the district Mr. Green.staled
that tne Metho.l'st church as a body was
behind the .pastot-in hjsj:hurch bulling
efforts and that before long another
church-would be built in the old town of
Princeton He stated there was a debt of
about $500 on the church and solicited
generous contributions A collection of
$62 was taken up near the close.
The ladies provided an elaborate bill
of fare and many were the toothsome
things served at the chicken supper.
Whether it was the open air, the appetizing breath of the pines, the constitutional demand for food sustenance, or the inviting array of edibles everybody seemed i
to eat heartily and the chickens disappeared with amazing rapidity. The supper
was a credit to all interested in the cooking and serving.
The concert, with Rev. T. A. Osborne
as. an ideal chairmanj and the splendid
program, was undoubtedly much appreciated and reflected credit  on all  taking
Continued on 3rd page.
"The celebration of the battle of the
Boyne by the Orangemen of Princeton
and Similkameen distjict was the largest
and most successful ever carried out here-
From Keremeos, Hedley, Tulameen, Granite creek and country sections large con.
tingents came to manifest their loyalty
to the cause of Protestantism and their
faith in the bible which is the groundwork of the Orange order.
Flags were flying from every mast arid
arches in various placef gave the town a
holiday aspect. The Princeton and Dis
trict band gave the occasion that setting
of vivacious music which creates enthnsL
asm and lends spirit to all having part in
public proceedings. A half holiday was
generally observed ane this gave opportunity for a large crowd to attend the
speechinaking and sports held on jhe,
grounds near the school house. A procession was formed at the Orange hall
and'marched to the station to meet brethren arriving on the on^Qp.clock train
from the lower valley. *:-The procession
reformed later in the day and paoceeded to
the grounds, where addresses were made
by Rev. Samuel J. Green, Methodist
minister at Armstrong, Rev. T. A Osborne, Methodist and Rev. Mark Jukes,
Anglican,, the speakers being presented
by the chairman, J. A. Osborne, whose
introductory remarks were to the point
and well received.
The dominant sentiment of the speak
ers made for a strong faith in the bible,
its promises and comands; clean in body
and living examples of the truth the father of Protestantism died for. The' secret of Britains greatness is righteousness
and all were urged to practise what they
preach. On the hishorical side the struggles and victories of Prostestants were
pointed to asjftiaving gaiTned religious
freedom and the stalwarts of the faith
were extolled for the great benefits they
had conferred on the world.
Excelsior Loyal Orauge Lodge of/pflh*
ceton has grown from a few members in
its early life to be a stroug, vigorous, organization of some three score members,
including men of the various callings of
life. Perley Russell is the worshipful
master and John Knudson is master in
the black perceptory degree. It is the
hope of the lodge to h .vejits own building
and room shortly. Throughout the Do-
midion of Canada Orangeism has growu
by leaps and bounds during the past few
years and has a political weight and influence recoynized and valued by the various parties seeking support of voters.
The baseball match between Princeton
V.'Kereineos-Hedley resulted in a victory
for Princeton 23 to 15. The batteries
were: Princeton, Elmer Henderson, H.
H. Ayery*"and E. Marston; for Keremeos-
Hedley, Huuter and McGillivary.
POLICE COURT.
■^Before C. E. Thomas, J.P., last Saturday, the charge of assault against W. D.
Young, laid by E. Clark, writer for the
Coalmont Courier, was heard. Defendant admitted the chara_'and paid his fine
of $10 and costs. 'Tire case arose out of
a slanderous article in the above named
paper re a ba_eball match, defendant
stating that he had no other means of redress. The magistrate intimated tbfcre
was provocation. The complainant Clark
said he did not write the article but he
undertook responsibilitj .
The charge of unlawfully carrying fife-
arms on his person was theu laid against
Clark by Constable Rogers. Clark admitted charge and asked for delay until
Wednesday that he might consult a law
yer. The case was adjourned but Clark,
owing to indisposition, conld not appear
and a further delay was granted one week
to Wednesday, Tfily 24.
LAID TO REST.
All that was mortal of Alex. Daniel
Ross, who passed away at the general-
hospital last Friday morning, was laid
away at the cemetery Sunday afternoon.
_4i_-ftmeral sermon by Mr. J. A. Stewart,
Presbyterian missionary student, was
well attended, many coming from Granite
Creek, where the deceased restded, ann
the upper country. The late Mr. Ross
was a pioneer of the countrv, following
chiefly prospecting and at the time of his
decease had mineral property bonded in
Sumiriit camp valued at about fifty thousand dollars. The deceased was held in
high esteen for his integrity and honesty
and a large number of friends gathered
to pay a last tribute of respect to the departed. The pall bearers were Robert
Stevenson, T. H. Murphy, John McDonald, P. Russell, F. P. Cook, T. Harrigan.
The executors of the will of deceased are
Hugh Hunter and J. B. Wood. Several
floral emblems were placed on the handsome casket, the arrangements being .
made by D. M. French, undertaker and
funeral director. Deceased was a native
of Nova Scotia and was 66 years old. A
memorial service was held at Coalmont

CONCERT AND SUPPER.
From First Page
part in it. The accomplished Misses,
Smith, of Hedley, rendered an instrumental duet as introductory, followed by
Miss Daly of Keremeos, with a song, 'O
piomise me,' which was heard with delight and genuine applause . Miss Daly
has a full, rich voice and that technique
which stamp her as a. vocalist far beyound
the mediocre. Miss Irwin in a piano
selection was well received and proved
her thorough knowledge of the instrument
Recitations by little Miss Rodgers of
Seattle brought uproarious applause. A
violin solo by Wm. Daly of Keremeos
immensely pleased the audience and
showed the musical skill of the performer
to good advantage. Mr.Daly may be styled
the 'Paganini of the Similkameen.' Mrs.
Brown of Keremeos sang 'Roses,' perfectly rendered, and with the musical ability
of a tboroughtly trained artiste. Mrs.
Brown is heard altogether too seldom in
Princeton and it would be fortunate if
her voici and teaching could be heard
regularly. The instrumeutal quartette,
Mrs. S. L Smith, Cello; Miss M Smith,
piano; Miss G. Smith, organ and W. Daly,
violin, was the event of the evening and
produced a well deserved encore—sweet
and low, beautiful in harmony and melc-
. dy the musical strains of this quartett
made a lasting impression on the audience.
Mrs. Brown and Miss Dalv sang 'For all
eternity,' which was highly appreciated,
the Misses Smith again delighted the
the audience with an instrumental selection. 'God Save the King' and the benediction brought the proceedings to a close.
EAST PRINCETON  NOTES.
The East Princeton Methodist church
was opened on Sunday. Rev. Samuel J.
Green preached the dedicatory sermon

A crew has been put at work near Merritt brushing out right-of-way from the
loop up the Coldwater to the summit of
the Coquihalla. More men would be put
to work every day if they could be found.
A party is now down to within a mile-
and-a-half of the loop, having completed
the work from the Coquihalla end.
When the connection is made with the
completed section of the road this party
will work down the Coquihalla into Hope.
The crew who are re-opening the road
for ballasting are now nearing Merritt,
and it is expected that ballasting can be
begun in a short time.

LAYOVER AT OROVILLE.
The editorial in Star of May 29,
A Slow Coach,' referring to the layover at Oroville, has at least, the
effect ofevoking an explanation from
the railway authorities. This' explanation does not offer any solution of the nuisance complained of
at Oroville, nor does it hold out
any hope of redress until the V. V.
&E- is completed in two, three say
five years, when through trains
would be obliged to run in any case.
The railway officials report in favor
■of the present layover arrd that
means opposition to any change.
It is not the wish of the people of
Princeton or the Similkmeen district to antagonize the railway company by requesting an exhaustive
examination into the matter by the
board of railway commissioners for
Canada, rather would they rely on
the keen, good business tact of the
railway authorities to rectify a grievance so glaringly apparent. The
delay to passengers, mail,/^express
and freight has an injurions effect
on trade generally; it also has a
serious detrimental effect in public
sentiment, as well as in receipts, up
on the Great Northern. Large
numbers of travellers prefer to take
the Hope trail, camping out a
night, or take the Princeton-Merritt-
Vancouver Auto-train service, via
the C. P. R., rather than submit to
the arbitrary delay at Oroville. Of
course the Great Northern people
know their affairs best and if they
are losing business, no doubt they
have good reason to do so. It is
understood the Princeton board of
trade has taken the matter up with
the railway commissioners .and if
the board be backed by public sentiment there may yet be some relief
obtained from the aggravating layover.. Following is the letter from
the General Manager of the Great
Northern to the Secretary of the
board of railway commissioners for
Canada:
'Dear Sir: Referring to yonr letter of recent date, with which you enclosed clipping from the Similkameeu Star, dated
May 29, complaining of layover at Oroville of passengers mail, freight and express.
'At the present time our passenger tram
256 arrives at Oroville at 7:40 in the evening, and train 306 leaves Oroville for
Princeton at 8:00 a. m. the following
morning, reaching Similkameen at 10:05
a. m. returning train 397 leaves Priuceton
at 2:30 p. m., arriving at Oroville at 6.30
the following morning.
'If the people between Oroville and
Princeton prefer night service to the pre
sent day service, we can make through
connection at Oroville, handling the train
on through to Priuceton at night, but
our General Superintendent Scott, who
has investigated the matter since receipt
of your letter, states that the people on
the Oroville line do not want any changei
in  the present service.
•'By putting this train on at night, it
would accommodate a few through passengers, but it would inconvenience, very
much, the local passengers, and would also mean the installation of night service
at six of our stations between Oroville
aud Princeton, and the placing of an
American Customs Officer at Chopaka;
and I feel'satisfied that the- general public who are now using our line would:
strenuously object to night service in that,
territory'.
Yours truly
(Sgd) !. M. Gruber.
St. Paul, June 28, 1912.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Star has recently received a letter
from a gentleman who desires to
make public the fact that he is billed
for an account which he. never contracted, from a paper partly printed
at Coalmont. Similar complaints are
numerous. It is nothing less than
a holdup for any person, to present
an account that he knows is bogus,
an imposition and fraud in that it
has never been ordered or consented to in any way. No law will,
compel a man to pay an account to
which he is not a parly. There is
a class of newspaper which by its
tone of abuse, intimidation and
criticism wring from timid people
payment of spurious accounts.
There is no occasion to fear such
dishonorable methods, for no court
would allow an account which has
no legal force, no standing on the
well known phrase ' it takes two to
make a bargain.' And then as to
the mild abuse and its insignificant
source one rather smiles than frowns
at it. Beacon lights always attract
moths and other vermin and these
insectivorous horde will bow one
silly attentions because of the light
and preeminent'excellencies radiating from within. Insects are of
some use in the economy of nature,
scavenging and feeding on the refuse of tbe gutter, hence the 'guttersnipe' as applied to the slanderous,
vulgar and ignorant writer of personal abuse and to scandal mongers generally. Insects of this latter
stripe are poisonous working in
the dark and attacking in the back.
They are easily destroyed—just pity
them in their unhappy condition
and they will vanish from memory
and thought into evanescent nothingness. Pity is love in action—
try it.

A PEN PICTURE.
The people of Western Ontario were
shocked a few da3-s by reading in a contemporary the announcement that a-former 'merchant prince' of K. had died in
ihe House of Refuge aged 77 years. In a
short biographical sketch it was observed
that he was a nephew of the late Senator
and about a quater a century ago was one
of the big dry goods men of B. That he
should have passed away on a poor house
cot is a sad but striking instance of the
irony of fate. It was said that never being married he was not ruined by the extravagance and ingratitude of his family,
and that not beihf a drinker King Alcohol never played a part in his undoing.
Nevertheless, the years came and he was
relieved of his wealth, and wrecked in
health and wrecked in fortune he was
obliged some two years ago to make that
saddest of all trips 'Ove. the Hill to the
Poor House.'
What stronger example than the above
could any man require or dlsire as to the
desirability of a safe meaus of investment
such as the Canadain Government's Annuity System, under which absolutely
sure provision may be made by every
man, woman and child domiciled in Canada against .want and poverty? Inj his
declining yaars, when his physical and
mental powers may have failed, when in
cpnsequencehe may be no longer capable
of earning a livelihood or of looking'after
his affairs, when perhaps all those near
and dear to him have passed away, he
will if he has purchased a Government
Annuity have the haunting fear of destitution in old age forever dispelled.
That little messenger, his Annuiiy che
que, will go to him every- three_ months
carrying with it comfort aud happiness.
It will be a steadfast friedd- It will ne
ver desert him.
Awake young man and young woman
to your oppartunity, and act on he advice of Sir Walter Raleigh given over
300 years ago but none the less sane to
day, namely, to ,use,thy youth so that
tho mayest have comfort to remember it
when it hath forsaken thee and sigh and
grieve at the account thereof,' ahd act today.
Apply to your Postmaster or write to
the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa
for information in regard to this most ad
vauUgeous system of saving.

THE ILLS OF YESTERDAY.
Yes, let them pass, the ills of yesterday—
The deed unlovely and the speech unjust,
The whispered hint—betrayal of our trust
That struck Faith's chalice from our lips
away.
Aud trailed her graceful garments in the
dust;
Our own default—the good we might have
done,
The battles lost that patience might have
won
The "word in season" that we did not sa>!
But let them pass, the things that grieved
us   sore
Behind his   back God casts  the  sins  of
men,
Repented of, remembering them no more;
Aud shall not we  who have  been  born
again,
And by his wondrous grace to him brought
nigh,
Hold fast the good, and let the evil die?
—Mrs. M  A. Maitland.

NEW WESTMINSTER  PROGRESSIVE ASSOCIATION.
One hundred dollars apparently look
good to most people in Canada judging
from the resnlts obtained by the New
West Mininster slogan competition which
has been running a month baout now. Slo
gan .of all kinds, short catchwords poems
that are almost epic in length, have been
received by the Secretary of the Progressive Association from all over the continent; West as far as Victoria, B. C, and
East to old St. John's, New Brunswick.
After all, a slogan is a simple thing to
write; just four or five words is all that is
wanted 'with New Westinster or Fraser
making one or two of them. And for
this the New Westminster Progressive
Association is offering a first prize of $100

DECLINING BIRTH RATE.
Prussia is goiug the way of France in
the matter of declining population, if the
figures for the past year are any guidance, though there were _tfv.!. tjidlboM
marriages than in the year- before, the
bilfths wje*e _oij«too less liian 1910 ^n'd 86,-
000 less than 1908. Race suicide is therefore again a theme for the animated debates of Prussia sociologists, who attribute
the conditions of affairs to 'the soaring
cost of living. In Germeny generally
the same truth applies in varying degree,
according to locality. Whereas the Ger
man birthrate in 1875 was 42.6 per 1000
the last figures for 12 months barely 31
per 1000.
