Telephone Question to the Front and
Celebration Deficit Wiped
Off Books.
The adjourned regular meeting of the
Board of Trade was held last Monday
night, there being present President Bell,
Secretary Harlow and Messrs. Waterman,
Cook, Cowan, Coulthard, Murdoch, Summers, McDougall, Smith, Avery, Wilson,
Lumsden, Hall, Conn,- Swanson and
Wright.
After routine the business for which
the meeting was called was proceeded
with, viz : To consider the advisability of
appropriating a certain sum of money,
#69, out of the '"unds of the Board, to
the payment of deficit arising from the
expenses incurred by the various committees in the celebration of Dominion
Day.
Two motions, for and against the proposition, were submitted to the meeting
for discussion, the consensus of opinion
being largelv in favor  of wiping out the
show: Peter Swanson, $20; Tulanfeen
Hotel, $12. E. Waterman, $10; C. Summers, $&; Huston Bros., $5; J. R. Campbell, $4.40; G. Murdoch, {2,75; J. F.
Lumsden, $2.55 ; Avery, jr., $v, Ross. $1;
Marlow, $1; Bell, $1 and Wright, $1; a
total of $69.70, thus wiping out without
a grunt, the obnoxious debt.
A strong plea was made for waterworks
and increased fire protection, the necessity for which was largely concurred in,
but the member proposing these having
suddenly to quit the hall and "wash his
hands " the matter received such a jolt
that all were speechless and the subject
dropped until next meeting.
A hearty vote of thanks was voted to

IRRIGATION CONVENTION:
Subject of Vital Interest to Agriculturists in the Dry Belt.
The attention of all those interested in
irrigation is directed to the convention to
;be held in Vernon, beginning on Monday, August loth. The meeting will be
attended by men who have had scientific
training as well as practical experience
in irrigation and whose opinioiis on the
subject have been consulted on many of
the largest works in the country. Papers

ury of the Board. The motions did not
cbmetoavote, the action of the meeting in subscribing money sufficient to
discharge the celebration indebtedness!
nullifying the purpose and intent of the
motions. As members of the Board are
all citizens it was deemed proper that as
such and not as members of the Board
they were responsible for deficit incurred.
Besides, the Board, now that it had been
given a new lease of life, had a dutv to
perform in the publication of literature
making known the vast and varied resources of this district. It also, as an
organized body, will assume the guardianship °f the rights and interests of the
district, promulgate and devise methods
for its advancement, have the oversight
of matters requiring legislative attention
at Ottawa or Victoria and by all rational
means exercising its influence in behalf
of harmonious social and economic conditions and conducting an aggressive
campaign for the introduction of capital
and the planting of settlers. To carry
out a policy or program of the nature indicated would require money and it was
thought good business "to hold what we
have," some $40, and spread the gospel
of liberty, mineral wealth and happy
homes iu this section with that sum.
The Board trusted in the generosity of
citizens blotting out the 'stain' of debt
contracted for celebration—in that trust
a beautiful illustration of 'bearing one
another's buidens' was afforded in response, as the following subscriptions will

the Western Canada Irrigation Association, from whom further particulars may]

The most noteworthy piece of railway
intelligence that has been made public
for some months is the announcement of
a bonus-given by the Dominion government to the Midway & Vernon, or what
is virtually the C.P.R , from Carnii to
Penticton, 50 miles, and from Nicola to
Penticton, 100 miles, the route for this
latter stretch being now surveyed by
Engineer Carry.
Whether Liberal or Conservative government the policy of bleeding the people white to bloat the legislator and lob
byist goes on. Bonus is a synonym of
blood—all kinds of leeches, bloodsuckers,
feed on the bonus—not a penny of it
goes into the actual construction of the
road. Uncle Jim is building the V.,V.
& E., snail fashion it is true, without a
dollar of bonus. Why not any other
road do the same ?
• A total of 655 miles of railway will be
bonussed in this province, costing the
people $4,500,000.
Geo. Cunningham, superintendent of
construction, states that a camp for rock
work on the line will be established in
two weeks near Allison.
There is  no  sign  of tracklaving and
no one seem^tp know anything regard

TO DEAL WITH COAL LANDS.
An effort will be made to stir up sufficient public sentiment to enable the government to throw open coal lands to settlement. It is a glaring fact that the
lands so held comprise a large proportion of the eligible acreage within the
limits of Princeton district. It would
be a great benefit to the town and the
district also if these lands were thrown
open to the settler by the government.
This is a question which the Board of
Trade might -interpose its goodly offices
i with benefit to the commuuity and credit
to itself.
An unconfirmed rumor has been in circulation that the B. C. Copper Co. would
resume work on Copper Mountain and
would also lake up other propositions.
Boys who destroy bird's nests with
young in them evince a vicious quality
that should be eradicated by the leathern

Cautions for Campers in the Porest
Should be Carefully Read.
Before the recent rains a forest fire was
raging in the vicinity of Otter Flat and
the valley, which, but for the timely
downfall of rain may have done "incalculable damage. It is to prevent needless
destruction of our forests that governments are making strenuous efforts to
overcome the devastating flames by wardens, patrolmen, fire guardians and stringent laws. The Canadian Forestry Association is also doing a good work along
the same line by the issuance of bulletins occasionally.
Forest fires are caused, in only too
many instances, by- campers and tourists
who leave their fires unguarded or are in
other ways careless about their fires. The
sams may be said of prospectors, survey
ors, and travellers. Many of these people would be the'last in the world to wilfully destroy timber in this way, but yet
a lack of care on the part of some has
had a most lamentable result.   There a:e
THE UNITED EMPIRE.
Manager Returns from East—Wonders at Slow Progress of Railway.
W, C. McDougall arrived from the east
last week after an absence of about two
months. He left Mrs. McDougall at Pt.
Dover, her former home, where it was
hoped her health, though poor, would be
built up. Mining business called Mr.
McDougall to Montreal, and there he
saw financial conditions at short range.
Various causes have led up to tightness
of speculative money, probably due,
chiefly, to a disturbed political atmosphere in Canada and the United States.
In any case, there is plenty of money.
When the reserve of investors is once
removed or relaxed there will be enough
capital readily found for B. C , and
Princeton with the whole Similkameen
district will get her share.
As manager of the United Empire Mr;
McDougall returns with greater confidence, if that were possible, in the proposition he has labored so faithfully and-,
well to develop and will, no doubt, con-j
trnue to do so until it becomes a shipping

of malicious firing but they are rare.
On the discovery of a fire or in the case
of its getting beyond control of campers,
or others, starting it, it is necessary to
notify the nearest warden or constable.

object should ever be thrown down in

Prosperity "and Cherries.
Robert Stevenson, pioneer and explorer, returned last Wednesday from Chilli-
wack, where he had been attending bis
daughter's wedding. A large number of v
immediate friends and relatives were
present and the bridal gifts were numerous. Mr. Stevenson states that Chilli-
iwack is now passing through a cycle of
unusual prosperity. Ranches are being-
divided and re-divided, until the whole
valley is practically orchard, garden and?
small grain acreage. Dairying is the'
backbone of the country, its chief source
of wealth. Mr. Stevenson presented tbe
Star with a box of beautiful cherries, a
sample of what is grown in that modern'
Canaan. They were the Oxeye variety,
fleshy, yet full of juice that tickled one's
palate long after the cherry had passed ■
that organ on its vitalizing and poem—,
inspiring course. Ahem ! Thanks. Mr.
Stevenson left on Friday for his mines

WHY NOT PUT A PHONE HERE ?
The fact that no telephone for the
transaction of public business has
been allowed Princeton by command of the superintendent since
July ist is having a bad effect on
the town generally. Men whose
time is very valuable will not come
to Princeton and be out of touch
with their business interests. They
wish to consult their principals or
their partners while on the ground
here but are unable to do so without a phone. Last week a millwright froui Spokane came here
depending on certain conditions but
was disappointed. He wished to
confer with interested parties but
could not without going to Hedley
or Granite where there are public
phones. He chose the former, being
on the line of the daily stage. It
will take him three or four days,
by his own statement, to get back
to Princeton and go on with the
business in hand. Loss of time,
loss of hotel trade, loss of prestige
•or business reputation of the town,
' loss of equal, footing with other
towns in the Similkameen and loss
of our rights as citizens and taxpayers : these are some of the ills
occasioned by the absence of a public phone in Princeton. It is not
treating the town fairly or without
prejudice to thus discriminate. Is
there no remedy, or do citizens intend to meekly submit to such contemptible sidetracking? Now that
the Board of Trade has underwent
at least, temporary resurrection it
could present some resolutions to
the Premier of Canada and the Department of Public Works which
might relieve the situation. In any
case the least citizens could do is
to enter public protest against the
exclusion of Princeton from the
benefits of a public phone. The
rights of manhood can thus be asserted by the protestants, by which
they may gain the respect of their
fellows, if not the ear of the super,
at Summerland. There is no difficulty, in getting an agent; it all lies
with the authorities.
PLIES AND DISEASE.
At this season of the year everyone has to undergo the annoyance
and serious nuisance of those " horrid flies." In spreading the germs
of disease house flies are a menace
to health and it is with a view to
warning and prevention that the
Chicago Health Department has
recently . published   some valuable
information,  extracts  from which
are given as follows :
'' For several years physicians
have been studying flies as carriers
of disease germs and more especially the probable part they play
in the spread of typhoid fever and
other intestinai diseases.- Investigations already made disclose the
fact that flies undoubtedly carry the
germs of disease on their feet, and
this makes them far more danger-
eras than mosquitoes.
Asus well known, flies swarm and
breed it! filth. During the summer
months they are everywhere ; stables, barns, garbage boxes, decaying animal matter of all kinds
swarm with them. From these
places they migrate to our homes
and are crawling over the viands in
process of cooking in the kitchen
and following them even to the
dining room tables.
In New York city a commission
of scientific men has traced the increase of typhoid fever during the
summer months to the prevalence
of the common house fly. It was
found that the activity of the fly is
in proportion to the temperature ;
and the time during which it is
most active and, of course, most
numerous, corresponds exactly with
the season of the greatest ; prevalence of typhoid and other intestinal diseases.
Dysentery and typhoid disappeared when proper disinfection had
beon enforced. In several instances
outbreaks of typhoid were traced
directly to transmission by flies by
use of staining fluids which demonstrated the transit of the flies from
filth direct to the kitchen.
The house fly is not born in the
house. A few flies have each winter hidden in cracks and crevices.
When the warm weather comes
they creep out and the female fly
seeks a proper and convenient place,
generally a manure pile, where it
deposits about 150 small white eggs.
In warm weather those eggs will
hatch iu eight hours. Their growth
is made in the form of larvae or
maggots. Inside of ten days they
develop into flies ready to lay more
eggs, from which come more flies.
I It is asserted that 95 per cent of
all the house flies are born amid
horss manure, and that the remain-:
ing 5 per cent are born in similar
substances. With these facts in
mind, it is apparent that flies can
most readily be destroyed while in
the larvae stage. Stable manure
that has been thoroughly disinfected
with chloride of lime will not breed
them. But this is expensive. The
better way is to have all manure
promptly removed from the residence district. But as flies breed
from the egg to the fly in less than
ten days, all stable manure should
be removed at least twice a week.
This is important, as no manure
means no flies."
