Roadfrim Hope to Tulameen Burden
of Untiring Effort by Col.
Stevenson.
work for the development of the-Simil-
kameen and himself sharing in the prosperity to follow. He owns valuable mineral properties here which may easily
bring another fortune—may it be so.
Our esteemed citizen and fellow frontiersman, Col. Robert Stevenson, has
been doing splendid service for the Similkameen during his winter's sojourn in
coast cities. He has been before civic
corporations and in the newspapers plead
ing the cause of this-district, carrying his
urgent appeals for necessary rond construction to the threshold of parliament.
It is characteristic of his indomitable
spirit so often tested in goldhunting and
exploring the wilds of B. C, that he
should go direct to the source of things
Having fortified himself with a large
petition he has obtained from the government a promise of assistance and investigation into the merits of the proposed road from Hope to Tulameen.
This road would open up a rich mineral
section and is an absolute necessity for
the progress and development of the
country.
Col Stevenson was recently in Seattle
where-he must have struck an enterprising bunch of reporters for the big dailies
publish a historical sketch of him beginning at '59 in the last cenfury down to
the present year of grace. The sketch
is prefaced by a long flash heading and
a photograph of the now aged pioneer.
The Star will have pleasure in reprinting
this thrilling biography when its pages
are enlarged, for the present it must be
content with one or two minor extracts.
The Col. tells with apparent nonchalance
how he could have possessed ihe heart of-
Seattle, which today is worth one hundred million dollars.   He says :
" I had $500 in my possession which
Henry L. Yesler tried to get me to invest,
offering me fifty fots'for the sum. These
lots now cover the .section around the
Butler hotel, but I refused the deal." '
Secondly : " On June 2 we crossed over
the summit, bringing all our animals. *
* * We were all very tired, our
blankets were wet and had been for several, weeks. . When Collins called the
roll that night thirty-two answered in a
whisper. I alone was able to raise my
voice to its natural tone. * * * The
captain prophesied by the side of the
huge fire we had' started that I would live
to see every one-of the party under the
grass—a fact which has been verified for
the past fifteen years."
The Col: is now 7aNyears of age, robust,
optimistic and bids fair to enjoy many
years,. performing,much useful missionary |i
IMPROVE THE ROAD.
Tbe necessity for spending some of the
taxes paid by citizens to the government
in improving the road between the two
bridges and extending the sidewalks, is
painfully apparent to all pedestrians.
Ladies are most aggrieved and are deserving of much better consideration. As
for the men who tolerate such diity conditions of travel it would not be too much
if they were subject to the ordeal of
walking barefoot through the mud and
slush every hour of the day and twice at
night. Maybe a petition to Obtain our
rights is the next act of humiliation in
the farce of government partiality.
ADVERTISE THE COUNTRY.
Writer Wants Similkameen Brought
to Front at Seattle Fair.
: Editor Star—Sir: I beg to address
you on two or three matters which should
be of interest to each one of the different
interests of your town and district relative to its development. Speaking for the
Beautiful Valley Land Co. of Keremeos.
let me say that we are in hearty accord
with the Board of Trade of Keremeos and
with the other progressive elements of
that place in their program for pushing
the advertisement of the whole Similkameen as to its latent Jresources, both
mineral, agricultural and industrial.
.We are advocating the co operation of
the whole valle3', Princeton, Hedley and
Keremeos, in at once issuing a booklet
or bulletin giving eveiy phase of the
principal resources of the valley and
pointing out in particular -the unlimited
opportunities in mining and agriculture
Such a book to be provided by the .contribution of all the vested interests of the
valley, and by this we mean ranchers,
miners, lumber men, mercantile interests
and citizens.
We can see no reason how Princeton
and Hedley can afford to withold from
working hand in hand with Keremeos
toward supplying a general exhibit of
the different native products of the Valley for the Alaska-Yukon Fair at Seattle.
We know that the upper valley is going
to supply-some minerals for the All Canada mineral exhibit but there is no excuse for not being able to seize this rare
chance to plage,before the outside world
the rich mineral and agricultural wealth
of the valley, and for the nominal outlay
of a very few hundred dollars surely there
will be enough local fore-sightedness to
grasp the fact that this is the proper time
and greatest chance. itt. their history to

The Edenbank Creamery Co. of Chilli-
wack has distributed over $57,000 profits
from last year's operations. The compa^
ny made almost quarter of a million
pounds of butter in the year,the average
selling price being 29^ cents.
Kamloops people are talking of starting
a Canadian Club there. Why not have
one in Princeton? It would serve two
good purposes — to fostet patriotic seuti-
ment, and to let the rest of Canada know
about Princeton.
The local house has prorogued and
some wise heads are busy predicting that
a general election is at hand. The House
has another session coming to it before
it can die naturally.
I -Samples for A.-Y.-P. exhibition should

Of 780 young ladies who fainted in B.
G. during 1908, 693 were gallantly caught
in the arms of yo'nng men close by. No
record is available of the remainder, but
it may be fairly assumed that the young
men were a trifle tardy and unappreciative
of the situation.
Some difficulties to be encountered in
procuring ore samples for the A.-Y.-P.
But now is the golden opportunity for
this district, and it must not be neglected.
Bring along the samples and let the other
fellow do the heavy grunting.
H. V. O. Chatterson, representing R
P. Rithet & Co., was in town Monday.
He is the same 'Chatty' who mauaged
the A. E. Howse Co's business two or
three years ago, if anything, he is younger now, the result of looking on the optimistic side of life. Some day he may
be one of Princeton's 'merchant princes,'
having a good word and warm corner in
his heart for the 'old town.'
Miss Lowndes came from Hedley yesterday to instruct her musical class.
At least sixty ore samples, besides the
coal, should be sent from this section.
All samples go on permanent exhibition
in the National Museum at Ottawa.
PREFATORY.
The Star is sending out a lot of subscription accounts this week the total of
which will, when collected, relieve it of
a heavy burden of indebtedness. It is
no secret that, the Star is a losing propo
sition, although it is run on lines of
economy unequalled in newspaperdom.
This state of its business affairs is largely
due to neglectful subscribers, those who
are able to pay but careless about their
account with their paper. The Star has
how reached a critical point in its career.
It has to pay its bills and will require
every cent due it to perform this necessary and honorable obligation. Each
subscriber in arrears is respectfully asked
to meet the small amount due individually but which in the aggregate is a large
sum. Bills are made out to the 1st of
January, 1910, thus making all subscriptions due and payable at the beginning
of each year.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
People Passing to and fro and Cur
' rent Events Here and There.
E. Waterman left for the coast yesterday and will be absent about a month.
Bert Irwin is assembling material for'
his new. house and expects to have it'
ready for the early summer rush.
Princeton  Tennis Club   was recently
reorganized  for the coming season with ;
E. Waterman as President and A. J. Mar-
low, Secretary.   It  is expected that new
grounds will be procured, in the mean- "
time the old one will fill the bi.l.
J. R. Campbell is haying the City Drug
StOTe painted and now it has a neat and
attractive appearance.
Ore samples for the Seattle fair are beginning to arrive, the latest being a sample of free milling gold ore from Granite
Creek.
Mr. and Mrs. Swanson wish to' express
hearty thanks, through the Star, to all
those, who by their presence contributed
to the enjoyable 'surprise party' given
.last Friday night. The occasion marked
the cordial relations existing between
the host, hostess and a large number of
citizens. Prof. Simmonds rosined the
bow while the merry dancers did homage
to the goddess Terpsichore., until the
wee sma' hours ayont the twal.
H. M. V. Adams has gone to Kamloops
after spending the winter here. He is so
much enamored with the town that it is
understood he has made such agreeable
arrangements aajwill enable him to enjoy
home life and finally 'settle down' here
upon his return in the early autumn.
Vic Ryder came in on yesterday's
stage and repoitsgood times at the coast.
Jas. A. Stack, prospector, of Golden,
Wash., was in town yesterday having
visited several mining properties in this
locality. He has great faith in the mineral resources of this section and predicts
a great revival when transportation is
given,
S. P. Gow, brickmaker, left last Thursday for Nicola where he will engage in
the manufacture of brick and lime for
local parties.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Bill Miner, or, as he was better
known in Princeton by the alias,
' Mr. Edwards,' says that he is not
in the least ashamed of his train
robbing habits. This, he confessed
to a parson prior to his escape.
Of course if everyone were to think
and act as Bill does there would
soon not be enough lucre to go
around.    Then, what ?
On another page will be found a
letter advising the cooperation of
business men  and residents generally of Princeton, Hedley and Keremeos   districts    in   publishing   a
booklet containing information of
the resources of the whole Similkameen Valley for  distribution at the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition at
Seattle.     No sane man will deny
the necessity   for   literature,  descriptive and informative, regarding the Similkameen.    This is the
Advertising Age.    To   be out of
the fashion  of advertising is to be
unknown and  unrecognized.    No
lurking doubt  in  any man's mind
gifted with ordinary perceptiveness
as to  the  possibilities  of the  soil,
the wealth of mineral and favorable climate of the Similkameen.   If
these conditions do not attract the
investor and homeseeker something
is wrong—something wrong with
the people already on the ground.
They are sleeping while the tide of
immigration is sweeping past their
doors  to places that advertise and
burn into the memories of men the
fact that they have something good
to offer.    Our correspondent is an
exponent and advocate of a principle—publicity—which is becoming
more and more popular.    It is impossible in these days to attract the
attention  of capital or any class of
investor   without first impressing
them with   the genuine worth of
what is to be disposed of.    The
Similkameen has a remarkable variety of resource and it  will take
every legitimate and effective means
of advertising to make it known.
It is up to the people, the boards of
trade, or other  bodies to take steps
to secure adequate advertising  at
the A.-Y.-P., Seattle.
No consideration of any advertising schemes of the Similkameen
should omit special and regular editions of the newspapers in the district. Files of all these papers
should be kept in some frequented
place for reference by visitors to advertisements and other information
sought. Special' editions of each
of the three newspapers, tbe Hedley Gazette, Keremeos Trumpet and
Similkameen Star, giving fair and
impartial information of the whole
valley, and circulated in thousands,
would reach a wide field of invest-j
ors who might not be attracted by J
any other form   of information—

A Few Useful Pointers on How to
Grow Potatoes.
As soon as the potatoes are planted
harrow the ground. If the potatoes have
been ploughed in a good plan is to harrow what were planted in the morning
before going to dinner, same in the afternoon before going to supper, using the
harrow with the teeth slanted back.
Harrow at intervals of about ten days
until the harrow injures the growing
plants then a small tooth weeder can be
used.
When the potato plants are too large
to use a harrow or weeder then use a cultivator. The ordinary five-tooth one
horse cultivator appears to be the best
implement, and the first cultivating
should be the deepest, about three inches
deep; then the centre or hind tooth should
be taken off and a sweep put on its place.
This sweep can be so adjusted that the
cultivator can be run at any depth desired and no cultivating, except the first,
should be deeper than two inches.
This matter of depth is very important, as a field that has been harrowed
every ten days or so from the time of

DRY FARMING.
planting will be ill fine condition ; there
will be about an inch and a half of soi
mulch and below that the sub-soil will
be firm and moist and it.is here that the
feeding roots of the plants will be found.
On examining a field last year on the
20th June, the main feeding roois were
found at a depth of two and a half inches,
and the average length of them was 2
feet 3 inches from the plant to the place
where they'broke.
If a sweep is used, don t hill up tbe
potatoes; the sweep will do a slight hilling which will be found sufficient, and
very few of the tubers will be found sun
scalded. The more level a field is kept
the less it will dry out, while the higher
ground is ridged the more it will dry out.
The last cultivating should be directly
after tbe rain if possible. If the ground
is very foul with weed seeds it will be
necessary to go over the f eld after tl e
last cultivating and hoe out what few
weeds have survived.
