MINES AND MINING
Princeton Coal   has Increased
Demand Wherever Its
Merits Known.
Important Mining Deal in Progress
on Copper Mountain—Voigt
Camp Busy
S Mr. Whilenian, of the Princeton   Coal
.arid   Land   Co.,   has just  returned from
visiting   the   company's   agents   in   the
Boundary  country,   and reports  that in
every case business is booming.    All   the
afcents speak   enthusiastically about the
improvement in the coal since the installation   of  the new  plant,  aud informed
Mr.   W__l.i_atr -"that   there   is a steady
growth in the demand fo: Princeton-coal
\iy  the  public,  and there is no question
hill  what   t_e coal is well   established as
the   best-~d<>______« fuel   selling in   the
Boundary country.
Lorenzo Alexander, expert for a
wealthy. s> ndicate ot operators of Vic-
toiia, airived in Princeton on Frida}-
last on mining business. He went to
Copper mountain on Saturday, accompanied by W.J Kirkpatrick and J. O.
Coulthard, representatives and part owners of thirty two, mineral claims situate
between Voigt's camp and the Similkameen river. He returned Monday, apparently well pleased with all that he'
had observed, and will report to his coin*1
pany at once. Should this proposed deal
mature,, as expected, an amount of over
$50,000 will be distributed among local
parlies.
Fred Weeks, consulting engineer and
expert for the_B. C. Copper Co., has gone
to Greenwood to submit his final report
on the various mining propositions negotiated by this company.
During the early part of the fall, owing
to a shortage of ex pei ienced miners, the
Princeton Coal and Land company were
unable to adequately cope with the
greatly increased demand, and as a consequence many of the Boundary agents
were without coal for some time; but,
having in mind the splendid tonnage
they have already handled this season,
most of the agents are building their own
bins, and intend to get well stocked up
early next fall against a similar shortage.
Voigt Camp postoffice has been established, with H. B. Cannon a-s postmaster.
The Princeton-Voigt Camp Stage company has the contract .or carrying the
mail daily, except Sunday.
W. C Mitchell, the diamond drill contractor for the B. C. Copper Co., recently
teceived orders to move a drill from the
Princess Maud to Voigt Camp, about a
mile distant Inside of eighteen hours
the drill was taken apart and  loaded on
sleighs, set up, and 34 feet drilled. This
is considered record work, and proves
that the contractor and his crew have
their business down to a fine point.
During the month of Jctober the
Princeton Coal and Land company
shipped over 4500 tons of coal, anil have
far exceeded this total in November Un
fortunately, the mine has been closed
down four times this month, owing to
the railroad company not having kept
them properly supplied with emptv box
cars. There is no excuse for this neglect
ou their part, as the coal company does
more than any one to help along this di
vision of the railroad, the freight value of
the October shipments alone being well
over $ 10,000.
Vic. Voigt has four heavy draught
teams busy at the camp all days. Be
t.w.eu Voigt camp and Princeton the
road is badly onto, repair in some places
owing to the heavy traffic.
-._T___J_. C. Copper Co. is working full
capacity at Voigt Catup, all the drills
six, being in firstclass o.e.
A caslr pncj&-has been asked from Mrs.
J-Q^enfUhard, part ow ner of theVAllison
'Wne, Copper Mountain, located in 1883,
and a deal is quite probable. The ore of
this mine is in the picture class aud is
veiy rich in gold and gray copper.
C. S. Jennings  of Leadville  and Mike
Gaynor of Tulameen   were  in   town  re
cently and   report   the   mining  outlook
very bright 111 their sections.

COALMONT   BREVITIES.
Coalmont, Nov. 25 —Mrs. L.A.Schafer,
mother of Mrs. S R. Tilson, arrived this
week to take up permanent residence
here.
The Coalmont theatrical talent is com
ing to the front this week and arrange
menls are completed for the staging of
the lively little three-act comedy farce,
'The Girl From Porto Rico.' It is expected to pull off the play during the
holidays.
Before we forget it, mention must be
made of the exhibition of public spirit
and town patriotism shown by the committee in charge of arrangements for a
Christmas tree. After collecting by public subscription an amount in the neigh-
boihood of one hundred dollars from the
business men and residents this committee shipped the whole amouut to Timothy
Eaton for their toys, decorations, confeoM
tionery, etc.,'when every article they ofj
dered could be supplied by the merchants
here, who donated liberally to the subscription. It is more than likely that the
next bearer of a Christmas subscription
will be politely told to go to Eaton.
A  FINE   CONCERT.
Those who heard the recital by Miss
Sloane and saw the moving pictures interspersed in the program of the entertainment given under the auspices of the
Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary, speak in the
highest  terms of the pleasures afforded.
There was a generous attendance at Dignan hall, and the audience was appreciative of Miss Sloane's talent, who was
ably assisted by Mrs. E. Waterman, pre
si ling at the piano. Miss Sloane gave
some beautiful Scotch favorites in song
and ncilal, and sang Hawaiian like a native. Throughout the evening not a moment whs lost in interest, Miss Sloane
winning much deserved applause. She
is sure of a welcome here again. The
Dignan hall has proven to be well
adapted for concerts, its acoustic properties assisting the voice in its varied cadences from a whisper to the loftiest G.

The address giveu by Organizer J. W.
Whitely last Wednesday evening on the
'Aims and Objects of the Orange Order'
was well attended. The chairman, Rev.
T. A. Osborne, made an interesting introductory speech, and the speaker of the
evening was listened to with marked attention. The address was mainly to inform the public of the aims of the order
and to correct any erroneous imptessions
they might have. The order is political,
benevolent and religious, taking the
Bible as its guide and defending Protestant faith. Its members are enjoined to
attend public worship and lead righteous

CONTBOVERSY GOES ON.
Editor Star—Sir: The letter by Mr.
Jukes in your issue of the 30th of October
reminds me very much of a dog chasing
its own tail, he moves in a circle and
neyer arrives at anything. But I must
say certain portions are humorous, though
unintentional.
Listen to the following: 'When God
created man, everything that he created
was very good.' Please pay particular
attention to that statement. Now read
what follows: 'Of the origin of evil we
have no knowledge, it was present in the
world at man's creation.' Now, sir, if
that would not cause you to laugh, what
will? Here is a man supposed to be
deeply read, and a teacher, writing nonsense. First of all, he tel'.s us that at the
creation everything was very good. Secondly, he savs, of the origin of evil we
have no knowledge, and thirdly, it was
present in the world at man's creation
If Ii is statements are true, it follows as a
logical conclusion that evil being present
in the world at man's creation and every-

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A large amount of pulp wood is
standing in this district, awaiting
enterprise to convert it into paper.
But for the welcome, mellowlignt
of fair Iuna Princeton streets would
be in dangerous darkness for tbe
most part of the month. Two or
three well placed lights wouid be of
immense benefit and send the appalling darkness into the uncanny
regions, where 4t belongs.
for the suppression of vice and im
morality. Governments wink at
sensuality in many of its glaring
forms and consequently those charged with enforcement of the statutes
regulating vice are lax in the performance of their duties.
The climate of the Similkameen
is one of its best assets and should
be attractive for the bleached, an_e
mic and washen people of the
coast. Here glorious winter gives
zt-st to life and causes the thick,
rich, red blood of citizens to pulsate with that tingling sensitiveness which defies cold and the
strenuous exertion of outdoor
sports.
More stringent enforcerrent of
the law regarding undesirable immigrants coming into Canada is
urgently demanded. Not only are
the infectious evils of alien races
apparent in many of the poorer
arrivals but among those of our
own tongue are the mentally unbalanced and deficient, instances
being known of them drifting into
the newspaper business. Less of
the undesirables and more of the
thrifty, honest class, many of whom
are settled near Princeton, is the
kind of immigrant Canada is most
in need of.
Legislation that aims to increase
population by placing a bonus on
babies is decidedly freakish, if not
repulsive. Australia by her recent
enactment offering $25 for every
baby born has put a commercial
value upon the most sacred of all
human duties—motherhood. And
the dear little baby, God's image
and likeness, to have a price put on
its head seems sacrilegious, an outrage upon our affections. O, the
commercialism of a nation that
would rob motherhood of its purity
and modesty and price the innocent
child. Those nations now seeking
to increase population as the farmer
similarly increases his flocks would
show a more enlightened spirit if
they  would  use  the bonus money
The advertisement on another
page calling for tenders for a public
building at Greenwood reminds
citizens of Princeton of their spasmodic efforts to obtain a public
building to house postoffice, customs and telephone exchange. It
is repealled that under Liberal rule
and representation a public building
was promised and tbe then member
of parliament for Yale-Cariboo was
in thorough accord with the request
made by the Liberal association for
one. But the member's promises
proved to be worthless and he lost
his political life. Whether the
Conservative association will ever
exert itself to the extent of obtaining a promise for the much needed
public building remains to be seen.
In any case if the Hon. Mr. Burrell promises it will be fulfilled.
One of the first things a stranger
arriving in Princeton talks about is
the train service. Irregular in its
arrival and departure, with a sort
of catch-as-catch-r.an happy-go-
lucky regulation as to punctuality
the train pulls in or out quite
regardless of the advertised time
table. The stranger after criticizing the poke-along train then utters
strong denunciation of the aggravating layover at Oroville and asks
why the people submit to such an
invasion of their right to be served
without many hours' delay at a
wayside village. He is informed
that Princetonians are the proudest
and most independent people on
earth and would not humble thorn-
selves to ask a favor from Jim Hill
or any bill. Star has frequently
referred to these grievances and in
June last received a reply from
Railway Commissioner Goodeve
and General Manager Grueber re
delay of the 'Molasses, Limited' at
Oroville, whereby and wherefore
said train came to a dead stop for
the space of twelve hours, more or
less. It is up to the Great Northern to do the right thing with the
people, for have not the people been
generous and tolerant with the railway company ? The townsite owners gave liberally of their ground
to the railway, why should not a
little reciprocity be shown and some
concessions made by the president
of the Great Northern ? Anything
he may do to promote progress and
prosperity will not fail of appreciation by the people. Otherwise the
people will naturally lean to the
competing Kettle Valley line for
relief from a desperate situation
and in resentment of an unaccommodating spirit on the part of the
Great Northern management.

From   Page 3.
thing was very good at man's creation,
evil is very good. How can that be? But
that is not all, oh dear, no! In the next
sentence he plunges deeper into the toils
and gets helplessly tangled up. Read
this again: 'God gave man one law for
his guidance, this was disregarded, the
inevitable consequences followed, the
punishment resulted from lack of fear,
had fear exercised i'.s proper influence,
there would have been obedience, as an
acknowlegement of higher knowledge
and more perfect attainment.' Now, sir,
if I say Mr. Jukes does not thoroughly
understand what he has wiitten I would
leave myself open to some very hard
criticism; if, on the other hand, we accept it as it is evidentlv meant what are
we to understand from it?
He   criticises  God  for making a faults-
law and  holds him   responsible for   our
shortcomings.    Next   thing   we   hear   of
he   will   have   thrown  him away and cm
I out a new one.    Welf,   he  wiil not estab
. lish   a   precedent.    The   Israelites of old
I made a practice   of  changing their gods
j people and nations before  their time and
I since   have  done  the  same,  evenin our
[ time the evolution of religion goes on
j     But wherein   does Mr. Jukes criticise?
j In so far as God made a law and . did not
put   fear into   the-  punishment,  as   Mr.
Jukes says 'punishment resulted through
lack of fear,'   then throws the blame on
God   for Our shortcomings  and faults by
saying,   'Had fear exercised iis.proper influence there would have been obedience
as  an   acknowledgement  of knowledge
and more perfect attainment.'
The whole letter might be "gone over
and treated in a similar manner, but why
do it? The onlv reply I can get is I am
either telling fiction and truth mixed or
changing my base, and no effort made to
point out wherein I am doing so.
Now, Mr. Editor, I must thank you for
your courtesy in publishing my letters,
and beg to inform Mr. Jukes when he is
prepared to be honest I will, with your
permission resnme the discussion, but I
refuse to continue to beat a dead dog
around the bush.    Yours truly,
Jno. Nathan.

SCIENCE AND INVENTION.
So great was the effect of the Bessemer
process upon the steel business that the
production in England jumped from 50,-
000 tons a year to 4,000,000 tons immediately after its introduction, and so
great was the effect of the cheaper methods of refinement upon price (hat steel
declined from .300 a ton to $40 a ton.
C. Francis Jenkins is one of the inventors of that familiar entertainer of the
ninety millions, which is now to be seen
in every town and hamlet of the nation,
the moving picture. For four years he
worked upon the moving picture idea be
fore he hit upon the key to the whole
situation which made the productions as
they are seen today actually possible. It
all depended upon the size of a hole in a
shutter, and that which Jenkins made
was the right size. Because of this his
machine worked. Yet this great invention was a thiug which led its maker immediately into unlimited worry and har-
rassment. In the first place he attempted
to popularize the moving picture and put
it on as a show as it is now put on in so
many thousands of theaters. This proved
a herculean task. The moving picture
was a thiug so novel that there w>s nothing with which to compare it. The public   could   not be reached by a word of
Cor tinued on page 7.

mouth explanation of it. An advertisement could not be written that would
carry home an appreciation of what this
thing was. The people could not understand thai it was anything more than a
magic lantern machine through which
one picture after another was drawn.
The first moving picture show that was
ever put on and asked for public patronage Was at the Cotton States' exposition
in Atlanta, in 1895. People would not
pay admission to the show; so finally the
doors were thrown open to the public
aud the) were asked to leave a quarter at
the box office after the show if they considered thev had been entertained to that
value.   .
Alfred Nobel, the man who has done
the mass of the world's work toward the
development of commercial explosives
and has thereby m_de modern mining,
canal buildidg, railroad building and
kindred industries possible, suffered untold discern-agements and temporary defeats before he finally attained success
In the end, however, he amassed a huge
fortune, $12,000,000 of which he set
aside and provided that the income from
it should each year be distributed in
prizes to ihe men of the world who did
most for progress.
