meeting of those interested in baseball

President. J. A. McAlpine ; Vice-President and sporting editor, J, M. Wright;
Secretary, J. R. Campbell ; Treasurer.

Mr. Campbell was requested to furnish a
list of the living and active baseball
players and patrons in and around
Princeton. A hearty vote of thanks was
tendered the Oddfellows for the use of
their hall.
The committee to secure grounds have
reported that a suitable location has been
procured both as regards convenience
and adaptability and are located between
Vermilion Av. and the school building.
Already the grounds are being improved
for strenuous practise.
It is expected that a match will be arranged with some good aggregation,

with the public to patronize and support
it.
Farrell. Campbell, et al, will be there
with the goods when called for delivery.

Boys, be punctual at all meetings and
practises, then victory and glory will be
yours. /Strike, one.!
GREAT DEAL IN COPPER
PROPOSITIONS.
E. F Voigt has In course of negotiation one of the largest mining deals ever
made in the Similkameen. It involves
a motley value of $2,000,000 and includes
besides some fifty mineral claims, the
erection ,of_ a smelter and construction of
a tramway system. It has been long recognized by mining men that Copper
mountain, with its vast medium grade
ore deposits, has all the component mineral resources for making a great industry out of mining and smelting.    It was
Continued on 3rd pace.

search of special medical advice. He
was much fatigued with the journey but
is now recovering somewhat although he
is still very weak. Many inquiries by
friends and their earnest wishes for bis
recovery wiil help to lighten the burden

FRUIT ONE OF OUR GREAT
RESOURCES.
The fruit ranch owned and operated
by Dr. Westwood and J. Nathan, is of
course, in its infancy as yet, and is just
receiving its final touches from the plow
and cultivator. The trees planted last
Xearlaws-a44 growing, barring a small percentage of loss which occurs everywhere.
The orchard ground on the lower bench
will be planted with potatoes, the quality
of which last year could not be improved
upon. On the upper bench clearing has
been in progress and some fifteen acres
are in readiness for crop and fruit trees.
This ground will require irrigation and
will be supplied with water pumped from
the river to a height of aboutjSflJieet.
It is probable that two thousand trees
will be planted as a beginning and then
other acres will be added as required and
experience directs.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Mark Twain has been laid away
I amid the tears and smiles of the
reading world. For who can recall his 'Jumping Frog' and other
tales without a broad smile or loud
chuckle. A great humorist and a
man of most honorable character
he still lives in the hearts and minds
of millions and will pass on to other
millions of succeeding generations.
Humor, such as Mark Twain's, is
needed in this sombre world of
greed and grab and religious hatreds and hypocrisies. Lack of good
humor saddens life. The remedy
lies in cultivating a jovial spirit and
reading Mark's healthy, humorous
literature.
It looks as though Lord Kitchener, field marshal of the British army,
intentionally gave Canada the 'cold
shoulder' in visiting America. It
it were not so he could easily have
allayed all apprehension by a simple
statement to the press. Star can
hardly credit a man in his position
with being wantonly offensive or
lacking in good taste by visiting a
neighboring foreign nation and
passing by one of the family of
Empire. As a gentleman soldier
and high official of the empire he
should not fail to recognize his relatives in the common household.
Perhaps Canadians are too unceremonious and did not make
enough fuss and invite him to club
banquets, or other flapdoodle functions. Explanations may yet explain.
Some move ought soon to be
made toward the acquisition of
athletic grounds for the purpose of
encouraging all legitimate sport.
Without these grounds a town is
handicapped in the competitive race
for trade.' Sports are a vital attraction for young people and old
'uns do not disdain them, and as
an advertising medium have always
played an important part. The
ancient Greeks and Romans were
proud ol their athletes and encouraged them by building great stadiums and coliseums. Princeton
cannot hope to emulate Athens or
Rome in vast structures but it is her
privilege and duty to provide, at
least, grounds. Tbe nation, or the
community, that does not encourage athletic amusements is losing
its 'grip.'
that one hundred miles of the Kettle Valley Railway will be under
construction this summer, which,
if true, will be very welcome in-
formrtion. It is certain, however,
that twenty-five miles will be completed, the contract for which is
about to be let. This is a crushing
answer to those who knocked and
jeered the promise of Premier
McBride to have the K.V.R. in
actual construction this year. It
also proves how unreliable are the
prophecies of the pessimistic press
which permit party zeal to drown
reason in a wordy sea of abuse.
Because Star ventured to remark
that R. L. Borden was lacking in
'personal magnetism' the Nicola
Valley News gets wrathy and says
'it ill becomes any journal to direct
an attackagainst him.' Sorry, Mr.
News, but when a leader fails to
harmonize the growling elements of
his party he is lacking in some of
the qualities which make an efficient head, call them by what name
one will.
Some three or four years ago the
question of an experimental horse
breeding station in the Similkameen
was brought np in the Princeton
board of trade, but interest in it
lagged and it dropped out of mind
Some newcomers in this section
have seen the possibilities of the
district along this line and are of
opinion that the Dominion government would assist if the matter were
thoioughly agitated. Who will
move r AAsDj?    \\ js~>
Now that the commissioners for
selecting the site of the university
have been nominated they will, no
doubt, come to Princeton and investigate its claims. Because Princeton has many, if not all, the required natural and other conditions
for a university it is hoped coast
cities will not knockit. Comealong
Messieurs commissionaire and stay
a week and be convinced of our
ideal climate, the inspirational hills
and beautiful natural surroundings.

GENERAL NEWS.
Chilliwack has decided to build a hospital which shall be adapted more particularly for the treatment of emergency
patients. It will be large enough for the
accommodation of twelve patients at one
time and will cost about $8000, of which
about $5000 is now in sight.
The Kettle Valley Railway has called
for tenders for building a 25-mile section
from Merritt to Coldwater. From this
latter point the line crosses Hope mountains to a point on Fraser river. The
total distance of the K.V.R. subsidized
by the Dominion government is 250 miles
and connects Midway with Merritt.
It is reported that P. Burns has an J

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE: $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS: The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you ?
