BANK OF MONTEEAL.
The opening of a branch of the bank
of Montreal in Princeton recalls the fact
that thi. bank is the oldes; financial institution in Canada and is inseparably
associated with its history and the progress and development of the great commercial enterprises of the Dominion. Its
branch here foreshadows the coming of
industries and rajiw_ys, both of which
are necessary ajju.are the means by which
populous centers are created. Princeton
attracted Vt\e attention of the bank of
Montreal officials some seven or eight
years ago, being visited then ty inspector Campbell Sweeney, who was much

expressed it at the dinner of the Mining
Men's Club, Thursday of this week.
As this convention will be a representative gathering of mining men from all
the minining states west of the Mississippi river, it is fair to presume that any
action taken on questions of needed legislation will have weight with tlie state
legislatures, and with Congress at Wash-
inton. All papers presented by the
principal speakers will receive considera
tion in detail, and the broadest discussion
will be permitted on all phases of the
mining industry.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
With the coming of two new
binks arid the movement in real
estate Princetonians pnt on an optimistic air that is good to see. If
there is anyone afflicted with pessimism it is probably due to the
constitutional grouch inherent in
them and which beclouds their
every prospect. Nothing obscures
the mental vision of those who
really want to see and the person
•who does not see Prosperity now
staring at him is wilfully blind.
It would be an easy matter for a
combination of real estate owner.,
and financiers to start a boom in
Priuceton. The aftermath of such
booms usually result in business
stagnation and deserted buildings
and streets. No such boom is
courted in Princeton.

the   bank   had  opened fourteen   branch
offi|es during its first  year of existance
ands. f#at  the majority of   the   branches
araji>-Jw on a paying  basis,  even at   this
early date.    He also  informed the shareholders that the stock of the bank is well
distributed (there   being 656  shareholders) and is all practically  held by  those
who are largely interested in the province
of   British  Columbia.   The deposits, as
compared  with  the previous statement,
showed  an increase  of   more   than  one
hundred per  cent.    "I need brieby  add
that the bank is at  last in  a position  to
advance rapidly in  its general   business
and   earning    power,"   concluded    Mr.
Dewar, "and, if we all determine to con
tinue to sustain and support our bank in
this the  first   few years  of  its struggle,
success is assured." b_.,

CITY  LOTS  ARE  BEING  OFFERED  FOR
SALE FOR THE FIRST TlflE.
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LANDS WILL GREATLY INCREASE
Here are some of the Reasons :
East Princeton is surrounded by huge de=
posits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important flinerals.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a lig=
nite coal.of the best quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred employees. The Princeton Coal __ Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For transportation, East Princeton will
have, in the near future, the Great Northern
and the Kettle Valley lines, both of which,
will pass through the townsite.
East Princeton is beautifully situated on
the Similkameen River, with an abundance
of water power available. The new city has
every facter for growth into a big industrial
centre.
It presents a rare opportunity for invest-
ment.    Get full particulars immediately.

The Town of opportunity
The rails have been   laid   into  the town and Coalmont is now the new
terroinus,   the  base  of operations for  the next  forty miles of railway
building.
Before six months have passed there should be a payroll in Coalmont of
between   350  and  400  men : This  means population, which naturally
means good business.
IF YOU ARE WISE YOU will  invest in a little Coalmont real estate
now while the choice is still good.
Don't let this opportnnily slip   along  with   the  others   which have got
past you.    Write for our circular and  price list ;. a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

REMORSE DID IT.
Ottawa, Jan 9.—An item of news has
been going through the press latelv to
the effect that the postmaster atMitdmay
has committed suicide because he was
threatened with dismissal. The postoffice
department is authority for the following
statement of the facts of the case:
"The Mildmay postmaster was in no
way threatened and had not been com
municated with by this department since
the advent of the present government.
On Dec. 23d, a complaint was received
that this postmaster had opened a registered letter which is a crimnal act. The
postoffice inspector was instructed to in
vestigate the matter at once and the
postmaster admitted his guilt, asking for
lieniency and mercy. The pos'master
committed suicide even before the inspector's report reached Ottawa and consequently before the department had occasion to take action."

good luck.   The door is wide ajar for all who have pluck and a little capital.    Investigate Now!
