seen in the Bank of Commerce window.
Operations at Voigt mines have been
indefinitely suspended by the Biitish
Columbia Copper Company, and the
mine managers have been summoned to
report to their superiors in Greenwood.
&.C , and at the general offices in New
YoV\k^g£jiQ__c__;g t-~<-_v'ic-S received early
this week from Vancouver, B.C. The
order to stop work has created considerable surprise in Canadian mining circles,
particular^- in view of the vigor with
which development of the properties at
Voigt camp has been prosecuted for the
last year, and no explanation of the
sudden termination of activity can be
secured from the company —Phoenix
Review
The Voigt camp mining deal has not
v. t > eached a definite settlement It is
1 ii._j.v_i that some delay has been caused
bv arrangement of terms If the B.C.
Copper Co should drop negotiations, it is
believed another company will purchase.
The United Empire Co. is now actively
mining coal, and with further develop-
vnient-'.^.'tonnage output will be largely
increased.
Mr Simmons is the new manager of
the United Empire Co.'s coal mine.
The British Columbia Copper Co. pro
duced   in   October  1,022,904   pound   of
copper,   compered   with  921.364  in Sep
tember and 946,364 pounds in August.
_R. B Barlow is the new fire boss at
t-b.e coal mine of the United'Empire Co.
The British Columbia Copper Co.'s
directors have declared the usual quarterly dividend of 15 cents a share. This
calls for the distribution of $88,756, and
will make a total of $1.10 per share;
fi615,394. disbursed by the company since
organization.
As a result of the recent meeting of
Cumberland miners a resolution has been
transmitted in duplicate to Sir Richard
McBride and H. G. Parson, chairman of
the recently constituted royal commission
©n labor, requesting that the commission
visit Cumberland at the earliest possible
opportunity and investigate all cansesand
circumstances of the present industrial
struggle in the collieries there. It is intimated that if the assurance is given
that the commission will look into the
matters in dispute between the operators
and the men with as little delay as
possible, the men will at once return to
work The members of the Commission
have expressed themselves as endorsing
the Cumberland application. The Commission holds it first meeting on the
29th ult.
E. Berrvman and F. Schmidt were in
town yesterday from Voigt camp. Drills
are still working on some of the minera'
properties, and there is much to encour
a}.e the belief that the B C. Co will carry
out the deal f.>r .0 gi. camp and other
claims.
RAILWAY POINTS.
It l"oks as though there was enough
construction material piled up in the
yards at this place to build a railroad
clear across the state.—Oroville Gazette.
At the Kettle Valley Railway Co. have
over three thousand men at work on the
construction of their line between the
Kootenay's, the Okanagan, Similkameen
and Hope at the west of the monutains.
Twelve hundred of these are at work on
the section ju-t east of the Okanagan,
while the others are scatered over the
line of construction, including a crew on
the Hope Mountain section. It is expected that within a few months this
number will be increased to five thousand.
Contractors report that it is easier to get
men now than it has been for some time
past. The present work entails an expenditure of over a quarter million dollars a
mouth, and the employment ol one
hundred and forty draughtsmen and
engineers. Track laying has-been nearly
completed between Penticton and Trout
Creek, and will be finished as far as Trout
Creek before the New Year.. Pending
the completion of the large steel bridge
at this point, further track laying operations will be held up A second locomo
tive arrived last Ftiday and will be put
on th"»t section when blasting operations;
will be commenced in real earnest
Grading between Naramata, and Pentic
ton is about half finished. Further hp
the grade blasting operations are being
carried on day and night. To the northeast of Naramata and between that point
and the Summit, the rock work is said to
be quite as heavy as considerable portion
of the C.P.R. main line.—Summerland

The annual masquerade ball given by
the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary has
again past into local history. Once more
the ladies have proven equal to the big
task necessary for providing and arranging the details for the occasion. Everyone
enjoyed the amusement thoroughly.
Prof. Knight's orchestra, with its usual
excellence and five instruments, set thr
pace for the rythm of motion, which
lasted until nature again proclaimed the
New Year dawn. Strong contingents of
merrymakers came from outside points,
while the immediate district was well
represented. The hall was crowded to
capacity, and the financial results will be
found satisfactory.

the door  to try to  locale  the  fire, when
Dell said, Vladies and  gentlemen I wish

LEFT IN THE BANKS-
A blue book tabled in Commons gives

banks. It shows that some thousands
of depositors throughout Canada have for
some reason or other left with the banks
a total of $676,147, to which no one has
laid claim for years. The unclaimed
balances run from a few cents up t<>
several thousand dollars, upward . of a
$_-ore bei^g over two thousand dollars

five thousand dollars.
committed for trial but escaped soon
after. The chief witness against them,
an aged Chinaman, was found lying
alongside the road with his head battered
in. This crime, too, was laid against
them. Last June Constable Kindness of
Clinton, heard the two men were in the
vicinity and went out with a number of
assistants to bring them in. They ambushed Kindness and killed him. Then
followed a long chase, which resulted in
nothing, for the Indian fugitives were
aided by all the Indians in the district.
The police tried other methods with the
result that the men are again in jail.

School reopens next Monday, January

pleasant holiday, largely due to the
beautiful weather.
The grand annual ball given by the
local Orange Dodge on th. evening of
Friday, 20th ult., was a social finale to
approaching end of the year not to be
forgotten. Brethren and guests from all
over the Similkameen were there in
goodly number, all departing with the
feeling that it was the best yet.
New year's morning at 6 o'clock the
thermometer touched two degrees above
zero, the lowest yet at that generally
coldest hour.

OUR PRESENT NEEDS.
Some problems to be solved
during the year just begun include
sanitary improvement, fire protection, electric lighting and incorpor-
always better than cure. With the
nucleus of a well equipped fire
brigade on hand, it only remains
for citizens to instil the life necessary for any emergency. Frequent
practices and inspection of apparatus
and water supply are necessary.
No guesswork or chances should be
allowed in connection with the
fire fighting system.
Electricity for domestic and
street illumination is an absolute
necessity. ' Let there be light'
has echoed down the ages from
remotest time. Only the spiritually
blind object to the light of intelligence or that light which uncovers
dark deeds. A town without a
general system of lighting is badly
handicapped. The danger inseparable from liquid illumiuants has
caused electricity to leap into favor.
ation. Taken in their order ofj Insurance companies welcome it
importance sanitation or cleanliness i and consumers prefer it for its
stands first. Princeton has been ready adaptation to use, its cleanli-
singularly free from any contagious! ness and non-igniting properties,
disease, a condition due to the self I It  is  understood  that  a company
draining nature of the soil, pure
water and a sun blessed climate.
Sewerage rr.ust, however, as a
means of proper sanitation for an
increasing population, be provided
sooner or later. It is vital to the
welfare of a growing town that its
sewerage should promote such a
state of cleanliness that disease
would have no place to lurk or
chance to propagate. Once a town
or city attains a reputation for un-
< leanliness, and consequent contagious of sickness, people will keep
aloof from them as a place of
residence Some towns have been
incalculablydamaged by recurrences
of typhoid or other epidemic
plagues Cleanliness of person,
street and premises is the deadly
enemy of disease. In an unincorporated town such as Princeton, it
■wis difficult to obtain concerted
/action among citizens on any public
is about to install an electric lighting plant for the town, if so, it will
add much to our progress and
convenience.
Incorporation as a municipality
has been frequently dwelt upon in
these columns and there is nothing
to add to former expessions beyond
the fact that the time is close at
hand for municipal organization.
It will all depend upon the popula
tion and the popular demand for it.
Star believes that the interest of the
community would be best served
when there is a population of not
less than fifteen hundred. Under
government care the town has been
well provided for, leaving no ground
tor reasonable complaint; but that
is not relevant to the subject.
Self-government is inborn with all
independent and intelligent people,
and Princetonians will have the
manly desire to manage their own
project.     If there   is   not   already | affairs as soon as they can do so on
some   statutory  provision   to   meet
such   cases,    it  is   advisable   that
the  government  consider  the important question of sewerage with
a view to prevention of disease in
,such   localities   mentioned.     Since
cleanliness is one of the attributes
Jl.f godliness   it   needs   no   further
tcommendation, but as it has the
mdorsation of civilized man generally, scientists  in   particular   there
ra   no   escape   from    drainage   or
sewerage.    Some, at least prelimin-
Iary. steps should be taken this year
lowards its establishment.
Fire protection without a high
itate of organization is not always
eliable and efficient. It is, however,
n the power of the public to make
iny fire brigade effective. If
leglect and indifference on the part
if owners of buildings or rather
urnable property of value are
llowed to go on unchecked, some
ay there will come a serious loss
nd bitter retribution.  Prevention is
the required scale.
NOTES  AND  COMMENTS.
At this distance from the scene
of the Turko-Bulgar scrap it is
hardly to be expected that anything
Star may say or do will be appreciated by either belligerent or assist in
the proposed change of the map.
However, if we may venture a suggestion it will be along the following
lines : a leg of the old bird [Turkey]
for Montenegro, a wing and a leg
for Bulgaria, eyes [Adriatic] for
Servia, wing for Greece, the remainder of the carcase to be kicked
out of Europe.
Our old 'friend ' Castro, ex-president of Venezuela, is back again.
He is the biggest unjailed thief
in the world, having stole more
than half the revenue of his country.
Star dnbs him 'Castor Oil' because
his name causes one to make wry
faces.     Put him out!

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
If you would be loved you must love.
See the children how innocent they are
in their amusements. Adults might well
imitate them, induleing only in harmless
pleasures.
Genuine, unaffected woman is always
beautiful and commands loving respect.
Fault finders and sneerers never accomplish anything of benefit—their conversation tends toward mischief and
trouble.
A true friend will always tell oue iu the
proper spirit of their shortcomings.
The untrue 'friend' will talk about about
you, not to you, if you are in error.
Put jour heel on a fretful, Haggling
spirit as one would to a serpent.
The struggle to do right, be right, at
all times, is prayer without ceasing.
No lady or gentlemen will wound the
feelings.if another—they are not revengeful, sarcastic or cutting in their conversations.
Death has no terror for those who live
in the spirit—the flesh mint be crucified.
Mentally big men stand in similar
relation to their detractors that a mastiff
does to a \-elping cur.
The h.Hihen worship idols of wood and
stone—the 'christianized' heathen highly
civilize 1 worships idols made of smoke
puffed through the no-=e, strong liquids,
pills, plasters and pleasures that are
sensual.
Ignorance an.l sensitiveness are pirt-,
ners.
COME TO CANADA !
The American emigration into western
Canada will total no less than 200,000 for
the fiscal year of 1911-12 is the prediction
of W. J. White, head of Canadian agricul
ture with offices in the United States, who
is in Ottawa this week. This is an increase for the year of 70,000. He predicts
another big rush this coming spring as
the crop of western Canada for the last
season has been a great advertisement.
M .ny American settlers from the west
have been yisiting in their home states
and have been booming Canada. The
rush to the west is becoming so large
that many of the states are becoming
alarmed.
This year four states hav refused
Canada space at state fairs. They were
Illinois. Indiana, Ohio and New York.
South Dakota was considering a similar
action, but decided that to put a ban on
Canada wou'd only be an additional

PRINCETON
In the center of a coal and ore producing district, situated at the junction of the Tulameen and
Similkameen rivers.
Agricultural and grazing lands, suitable for
sheep,, cattle and horse raising, poultry farming, etc.
Climate is dry and healthful, an agreeable
change for those living at the coast, or in humid atmospheres.
Scenery, fishing, hunting and shooting unexcelled for the painter and sportsman.
The future of PRINCETON is assured. The rise
in real estate and farm land values will be repeated
here as in other centers.
Railroad connection with the coast and the
Okanogan will give impetus to development and
production.
For maps and information apply
