FOE CLEAN JOURNALISM.
Ill Tempered ' Bruce' and His Yellow
Ethics Subject for Reform.
Thanks to 'Bruce' Star is receiving
some attention now in such polite and
endearing terms as 'potwolloper,' 'nondescript,' 'shrimp,' 'idiot,' and 'pulpy
brains.' The other week he was calling
the editors of other papers similar names
and it fell to the lot of the gentleman
who edits tbe Ft. George Herald to give
Bruce his quie"tus*^'>twor_rof_s of four
letters each. Star has _iBw__T5eTfer way
of dealing with a character like Bruce,
who has slandered many persons from the
premier of the province and his ministry
down to tbe humblest subject. Star admits that it is belittling to pay any attention to the Sunset man and readers are
asked to pardon this enforced offence.
Our position is similar to that of the
plaintiff in the recent libel suit against
Bruce, in which the former won and was
awarded nominal damages, thus virtually
censuring him for having given any
heed to the irresponsible writer. Bruce's
unintended humot/toward the Star may
cause us to smile but there is a serious
side to ii. The big column of abusiye
stuff hurled at the Star and others is
hardly fit for boys and girls to read and
is neither instructive nor elevating for
older persons. In the interests of clean
journalism, clean home and clean social
life no one can afford to couutenance a
paper which plays the part of a muck
rake. Error cannot be remedied by
patronizing it. Personally the Star is
not concerned about the knocks or praise
of scribblers who fortify a weak morale
with excessive use of fireworks and
firewater, but if Bruce will abandon both
he mav 3'-1 command respect and influence with the thoughtful public. This is
s _d with no intention of provoking another column of virulent abuse in Sunset
but with the sole aim of helping to main
tain the dignity of the press and making
all journals in this province a power for
good. Will you help, Bruce, in raising
the tone of your paper to the standard
indicated, battling for the riaht in language clean and eloquent, holding high
the torch that its rays nj^yjdispel all
darkness, and aarrv><ftrjahe message of
cheer and good vtiljl tt> burdenedyorothers
working out the) problems of existence ?
PROSPECTOR WHO KNOWS.
Editor Star.-—Sir: 'Bruce' of Saturday Sunset, has taken exceptions to my communication of
two weeks ago. That letter was written for the
benefit of the prospector and to tell him the only
route to Steamboat mountain on which there was
horse feed. I have just returned from that district and the trail is now open so pack horses can
be taken over. The feed will be good in about two
weeks. 'Bruce' accuses me of boosting for Spokane and not Vancouver- It would be uselessLto]
expect any money from Vancouver for dewflop-j
ment of Steamboat or any other mininyiSampI
The so-called capitalists of Vanconvcr arejf only J
lot of mortgaged real estate speculators. Frorifl
the heat 'Bruce' has shown in his article one
would imagine that he had been caught in a lie.
The B. C. Fruit^Magazine inelegantly but truthfully depicts him as being a 'pimple posterior to
mankind*' Yours truly.

THE ATHLETIC WORLD.
The April number of that interesting Canadian
publication "The Athletic World" has just reached
this office. A perusal of its pages and a glance
at the many illustrations give free proof that in
the covering not only of Canadian but also of universal sports and general pastimes, this magazine
is more than fulfilling past promises and marking
out a future of certain and unqualified success as
a national periodical for Canadian followers of
sports of all sorts.
All eastern board of trade has adopted
the slogan : 'Boost, and if you can't boost
don't knock.'

BUILDINGS GOING UP
Largest Record in History of
Town Denotes Busy
Times Ahead.
Princeton Must Become Great Distributing Centre for Surrounding
Mineral Camps.
. Buildings in progress and completed represent a larger expenditure so far this year than fur any
simtw•period in any previous year.
Hastijr^i'gathered information discloses unusual building activity
present and prospective, all indi.
eating a big step forward in the life,
and prosperity of the town and district. Confidence in the permanence and stability of Princeton as
a centre and distributing point for
ail the upper Similkameen country
is taking deeper root every day.
Other towns may spring up in this
section, which every progressivist
welcomes in that spirit of healthy
boost which says there is room
enough for all, but there can be
only one centre and that is the natural and logical one—Princeton.
A store block on lot i, block g,
Bridge St., has been begun by contractor A. E. Irwin, who bought
the lot from F. J. Finucane, Spokane, for $J_J^5. through H. H.
Avery. _*_e building is 36x66 with
a cellar 25 feet square and will be
occupied by O. H. Carle, grocer.
Mrs. Allison is having a cottage
built 30x36 with verandahs, kitchen, pantry and bath room, on her
beautiful plot on north sidg of the
Tulameen river. Contractor Irwin
has carpenters at work on it.
The Tulameen hotel is receiving
a large addition including septic
tanks. Contractors X^_____Knudson
and Mr. Garlarneau are doing the
work.
The new Great Northern hotel
70x70 feet, for Manly & Swanson,
the addition to the Similkameen
hotel for J. N. Nelson and the new
Princeton hotel to replace that de
stroyed by fire, are some of the
buildfrigs to be ere'eted.
Other buildings are as follows:
N. McFadden, 2-storey house; J. F.
Waddell, house, 2-storey and attic ;
P. Johnson, house ; W. C. McDougall, addition to supply store ; G
Freeman, cottage ; J. W. Stitt, cottage; C. Day and Bert Irwin, addition to house. fflfc

PRINCETON AND PROGRESS.
F. E. Groffman returned from a trip to
Vancouver last week and reports prosperity and progress very much in evidence. During his short absence he noticed a decided improvement in building
and business circles and thinks that
Princetou is now fairly "launched upon
the great wave of prosperity sweeping
over the province. It will be learned
with regret by many here that Mr. Groffman will be absent again for several
months. His time and ability have always
been unsparingly given toward anything
that pertained to the welfare of the towu,
therefore he will   be much missed.
TRAIL TO STEAMBOAT.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., and Road Superintendent Turner paid a hurried visit
to Princeton between trains last week
for the purpose of considering and executing certain public works required in
this section. Mr. Shatford is very optimistic regarding the development of this
portion of his constituency'and notes the
progress observable on every hand. Mr.
Turner started a gang at work on the
Sleamboat trail in charge of foreman J.
Snowden. The road superintendent ___f
beenrjtisy in the east end Of the Similkameen and both he and Mr. Shatford will
return here shortly to complete plans for
the season's public works.
FAVORS RECIPROCITY.
Assistant Traffic Manager M. J. Costello
and V. Kistler, District Agent of the
Great Northern, called at the Star office
last week and interviewed the imp, who
showed them the machinery and dilated
on the mysterious functions of the devil
and the role he played in the inky art.
Mr, Costello js__an _ers__while editor and
talked freely on reciprocity, which he
hopes will become law. He expects railway construction to proceed this summer,
thinks our railway laws are superior to
those of Uncle Sam and said one railway
station would be ample for the needs of
Princeton and district.
Mr. and Mrs. G. Murdock returned
last Friday from a very interesting trip
into the Okanagan as far as Enderby,
where they met Mr. and Mrs. Pyman,
who wished to be remembered to friends
here. The development of the Okanagan is marvellous and land is selling'
from $50 to $100 per acre. Settlers are
arriving in large numbers and hotels and
steamboats are crowded. It is not improbable that Mr. Murdock and family
mav remove to that country, so strong
are the inducements for land speculation.
An inquirer wants to know if that
'60 ton' safe recently installed in the
Bank of Commerce is for diamonds from
Olivine mountain. We opine that the
bank will not overlook these gems if
they are brought in quantities not exceeding the weight ot. the safe.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Princeton and district have been
so often extolled by visitors that it
seems superfluous to further quote
from them. An early resident of
Rossland, and one__iio knows the
Boundary and Kootenays well says
that this section has all the earmarks of a vast mineral camp, and,
better than all words he is coming
here to locate and invest.
The reciprocity bill has passed
the United States house of representatives by a vote of 265 to 89.
It is altogether likely that the bill
will pass the senate and be ratified
by the President, becoming law as
soon as the Dominion has passed it.
It is a step on the long road to universal free trade and, it is hoped,
to universal peace and disarmament.
Star is in receipt of a circular
from the Vancouver Political Equality League which aims to obtain the
ballot for women. It says : 'We
are anxious to enlist your sympathy
and financial assistance in this noble
cause: the welfare of woman in
particular and humanity in general.'
They are welcome to both. Any
person knowing the corruptive influences at work in much of the
politics of all countries having origin at the ballot box will have small
excuse to refuse women the ballot
and their purifying tendency in
every walk of life. Politics will be
that much better by the presence of
the leaven of womanly influence
at the ballot box, heightening the
present standard of representation
and adding respectability and
moral tone to government generally.
Critics and opponents of Christian Science who predicted early
dissolution of that body after the
passing of the revered leader, Mrs.
Eddy, will probably be amazed to
know that there is not the slightest
sign of decadence. In fact there is
abundant proof that the Scientists
are gaining in influence and numbers every day. Churches are being
erected all over the land, members
. are flocking to its fold, even
in Princeton where, until recently
there was not a Scientist, a real in-
trest is observed in its teachings by
those brought into, touch simultaneously with the Bible and the
wholesome Christian Science literature. Dr. W. F. W. Wilding, M.
R.C.S., with a number of medical
doctors,  has   abandoned medicine
for divine healing. In Edinburgh,
Scotland, he recently in public
stated that he had spent many years
in medicine, twelve;of which were
in Lancashire. He says: ' A eare^
ful study of the teaching of Christian Science revealed tbe method
and law by which such healing is
accomplished, and gradually I became convinced that it was the same
method as that taught and practised by Jesus. Further study and
examination of the healing works
of Christian Science eventually led
me to give up medical practice. *'
Christian Science is attracting the
multitude because it does the work
the Master did iu healing suffering
humanity of sin and disease—failure to do His work must result in
religious atrophy, the empty pew
and national corruption. Sin and
disease are twins, as taught by the
great Physician, and the mnltipli
cation of diseases now observed is
but a reflex of the low spiritual condition of humanity. Hope lies in
Christian Science to spiritually uplift and divinely heal rather than
trust in idols made of syrup, oil,
extracts, 'dope' and the thousand
inventions of man. Evidently a
new era in Christianity is dawning
and surely it ought to be welcome
by all who pray 'Thy kingdom
come.'
