Anthracite coal at "depth in Princeton basin.
Not pedigree, but good reputation proves the man.
The statement is made, and successful refutation challenged, that Princetohj district has more and greater variety of minerals than
any other mining section in the world—Princeton will be junction point of two railways, also divisional point—Coking coal.

RAILS AND BRIDGES
Tracklaying Delayed by Pile
Driving—Fair Progress
is Made.
Nothing to Indicate Continuance of
Road to Coast now—Steel at
Ashnola Creek.
Clearing the ground for divisional facilities will shortly begin here.
Piles for the permanent bridge over
the Similkameen river at the foot of
Bridge street are now being got out by
French & Carlson for the V., V. & F.
A horse power pile driver will be here
about the 1st of August to commence tl e
work of piling which, when finished,
will be used for a roadway on which to
haul the earth to be removed from the
cut nearby. An immense quantity of
earth will be required to fill in around
the station giounds in town. When the
track is here the permanent bridge structure will be proceeded with.
There are three pile drivers now at
work between Keremeos and Princeton,
two being steam and one horse power.
One of the steam drivers is at Ashnola
creek and the other is at the second crossing of the Similkameen at Brushbottom.
The horse driver is at Hedley, where a
thousand feet of piling is required to
cross Twenty-Mile gulch.
Steel is now laid to Ashnola creek, six
Utiles from Keremeos. It will be delayed
there for two weeks and will then push
on to the second crossing.
Nothing has transpired within a year
to indicate that the V.,V. & E. will be
immediately pushed on to the coast via
surveye.d route through Coquihalla Pass.
If the Great Northern won't,'no doubt
the Canadian Northern would be glad to
use that route and extend branch to
Princeton for some of the coal and ore
tonnage now waiting transportation.

Saunders, and Messrs. Lumsden, Garrison and Lazier.

TRY THEIR LUCK.
INSTALLED AND SUPPED.
Installation night is usually observed
by Oddfellows with festivities, the occasion, last Thursday evening, being marked
by the invitation of non-members to the
social and supper. The invited guests of
members, after the installation ceremony,
were enteitained with dancing and games
lasting to the midnight hour. Adjournment was then made to the supper table
laden with tempting delicacies provided
by caterer Semerad. The dining room
was appropriately decorated with emblems of the order and a magnificent
cake had cunningly worked devices with
the letters I. O. O.F. imprinted on it.
Many favorable remarks were heard of
the elegant spread and the good time
provided by wearers of the mystic three
Me*ssrs. C O. French, Ben Baker, Dell
Svkes, Tom King, and Frank Ryder left
last week for Spokane where they will
registeo/for the big drawing for land to
be tljjwwn open to public competition
and which was until recently held by
Indians as a reserve. Our best wish for
the boys is that they may all win, but
failing in that our next wish is that some
one of them may bring back the $150,-
000 which the N P. is -said to offer for the
drawing which secures first choice. Draw
boys, draw hard !
NEED HIM HERE.
F Pyman has received word of the loss
by fire of about $200 in store property
which he left in Enderby when leaving
for Princeton.As a result ot this fire,
wfiicn was lhcendiary, and for which the
watchmaker of that place is now in jail,
Mr. Pyman has been importuned to return to Enderby. He will know definitely in a few da3's whether he will remain here or return to his old stamping
ground. Were Mr. Pyman's future
movements left to a vote of the citizens
he would not 'move.' for he has proved
too valuable in fraternal and social circles to part with now.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Public worship in the court house Sunday at 11 and 7:30.—Rev. Mr. Conn.
Principal Cochrane left Princeton at 7
p.m., Wednesday, June 30, and arrived at
Hope 4 p.m., Friday. Not bad going on
a mountain trail and one night's sleeping
out at the root of some tree.
Dr. and Mrs. Whillaifs and little
daughter, Frances, w»«r*!n town Thursday and attendjBtrthe Oddfellows' social
in the evening.
Dr. Lazier has been appointed ooroner
for Princeton district.
Victor Voigt arrived home from Portland on Saturday ancLwlll spend his college vacation with»ifis parents at Voigt-
ville, Copper Mountain.
H. Reinercke has arrived from Ottawa
and will proceed with the topographical
survey of the Tulameen district, begun
last summer.
Col Stevenson and his men went up to
Otter Flat last Saturday to meet J. P.
McConnell. of the Saturday Sunset, Vancouver.
MINES AND MINING
Probable Copper will Touch
15-Cent Mark Within
Thirty Days.
Making Steel hy Electricity Proved
Success—Large Iron Deposits
in District.
Charley Saunders is at work on his
Copper Mountain mineral claims and is
gratified with results. He could begin
shipping tomorrow if rail transportation
were available. When the rails reach
Princeton Mr. Saunders will begin shipping ore to one of the Boundary smelters
Here is evidence of the necessity for
earl^ transportation and this is by no
means an isolated instance. There are
at least a dozen properties in Princeton
district that could begin shipping, on a
small scale perhaps, if there were facilities.
It is reported that the B.C. Copper Co.
has arranged with the Dominion Copper
Co. to treat its ores at their smelter.
This is good news for Gieenwood.
Electric smelting has been proven a
great success in Sweden aud Norwav.
Dr. Haanel, Director of Mines, Ottawa,
says that an immense field is opened up
in Canada by it. Having the iron ore
the next requisite is water power—Princeton district has abundance of both.
Last week' a big body of $87-ore was
struck on the Blue Bird, Rossland.
Pierp Morgan j and Ikey Guggenheim
have fitted up a floating palace and are
visiting mining camps in Alaska and
Yukon. The Similkameen will knock
the spots off either of the two territories
named. Why not have the Board of
Trade call a special meeting and invite
the gentlemen to come here and see
something for their money.
The statement is made in the Los Angeles Mining Review that owing to surplus copper decreasing at a fast rate
15-cent copper may be expected in August and   16-cent in September.
Le Roi dividends were declared in
London recently at 50c. per share.
OBITUARY.
After a long illness culminating in
death Tuesday, 6th inst., W. J. Henderson, of Tulameen passed to his rest surrounded by family and friends. The
funeral service was held on Thursday last
at which a large number of people were
present, testifying the respect in which
deceased was held. Rev. Mr. Conn addressed the assembly at the home and
graveside, the obsequies being in charge
of the Oddfellows who observed the last
impressive rites of the order over the
remains. The late Mr. Henderson
was widely known throughout the
Similkameen, having been engaged in
the hotel business at Hedley and Tulameen. He was 48 years 11 months old,
born at Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh,
Ireland, came to Canada with parents at
five years of age and resided in Stratford
for years, where he married Miss Lillian
Rowland, who survives him with three
sons, Charles, Elmo and Austin. To
the bereaved ones the Star extends heartfelt sympathv.
ANIMAL FOODS AND REMEDIES.
Jas. Beck, travelling agent for the Royal Medicated Food Co., was in town recently in thei interests of his company
and made arrangements for the sale of
the foods and remedies here. Owners of
horses, cattle, poultry, dogs, and all live
slock may now procure these goods
which have been the standard in the
British army for more than half a century
and are used extensively in the United
States. A laboratory for the manufacture of the various animal medicines and
foods has been established in Vaucouver,
making them according to the formula
prescribed by Dr. Moodie, the discoverer,
many years ago.   Give them a trial.
PUBLIC SCHOOL EXAMS.
The examination at the close of Princeton school for the summer vacation resulted in the following awards :

Storks are becoming quite plentiful
throughout the Similkameen, one bringing joy and gladness to the home of Sam
Gibson last Monday. Boy. Congratulations.
Prof. Cooper, the blind phrenologist,
arrived in Princeton last Thursday but
did not perform, or headread. The hall
being engaged by the I.O.O.F. rather
irritated the Prof., who with a fine blend
of humor and sarcasm remarked that
'the town did not look good to him* and
went away somewhat abruptly. Come
again, Prof., there are some heads here
that need 'fixin,' including the ed's, of
course.

LAW AND ORDER.
Law is a wonderful and curious
Sthing. The people elect and pay
men to make laws at great expense
aud with much ado and circumlocution they are placed in statute
books there to be wrangled about
by bumptious lawyers and bewigged
judges. But the singular part of it
is that the government, after going
to much expense, debate, the ministers and Mr. Speaker looking very
grave and very wise in making law
should allow that law to lapse or
take on the character of a farce.
In the early days in the west and
now men have bad to organize for
self protection and. to see that the
laws were properly adminrstered.
The government and its officers
were indifferent regarding their
own respectability, c*ring nothing
for the moral welfare of the people as a whole, permitting most
flagrant violations of tbe law, thus
inviting crime and immorality.
Their culpable disregard of duty
and of the oath which bound them
to enforce law and order made a
iravesty and a farce of justice.as
administered by them. These conditions led to the formation of Vigilance committees, or Vigilantes
and 'Judge I/ynch' did tbe rest.
Few communities have any desire
for Vigilantes or lynch law although it must be admitted the}' did
much good in correcting wrongs
which the police and magisterial
authorities winked at or were afraid
to attack. Bvery good subject ad-
miits that our provincial laws for
the suppression of vice, control of
the liquor business and preservation
•of the peace are fair and just. No
objection to their enforcement can
be made with reason, for, the licensee knew the conditions, and the
bawd, the drunkard, the gambler
and dope fiend know the penalty
for their indulgence in offences
against the law. It is surprising,
therefore, that lawbreakers and
their friends or any portion of the
general public should cry out
against the very laws for which they,
.as voters, send men to parliament to
make. and. enforce—they are neither logical nor consistent.
If the government and the provincial constabulary had enforced
the law regarding ' wide open'
towns from the first there would be
no occasion lor the grumbling now
heard because the ' lid' is being put
on  throughout   the  Similkameen.
As guardians of the morals and
general welfare of the people the
provincial government mnst provide ample police protection for all
unorganized towns or districts. Its
offieers should be the best men pro-
■curable, knowing their duty and
performing it without prompting,
fear, or favor. Too often men are
made constables for political or
sympathetic reasons, who lack every
qualification for the position except
that of being able to draw their
pay. It is through tbe inefficiency
of police and lack of confidence in
them that citizens arm themselves
in towns where lawbreaking is
rampant, tolerated and allowed to
go unpunished. This state of
things gives rise to vigilantes and
lynching bees in some places.
Princeton has always enjoyed a
good reputation at home and
abroad, its criminal calendar being
very light. But, as the Board of
Trade pointed out at its last meeting, it is the minor offences which
constitute a serious and undoubted
grievance and call for radical reform. L,aw and order are the mainstays of every town, without them
real thrift and true progress must
be seriously hampered. Disorder
and loose administration of law
will not conduce to the increase of
the respectable population of any
town. .In the metamorphosis which
is gradually taking place in the
'wild and woolly' west, no one will
long for the old. 'wide open' days
except those who made money out
of the loose law and tbe loose victim. Shooting holes through stove
pipes and lqmps, or throwing gold
nuggets or rocks through a costly
mirror may be exciting but not
good business.
The action ot the Board in requesting the magistrates to take
means for the suppression of lawlessness and the strong pronouncement of one of the magistrates present, will have the thankful endor-
sation of every parent and the approbation of all who desire to see a
'clean,' inviting and progressive
town. It is said that there are
certain 'necessary evils' in every
town. By no law, rule of logic,
divine or human authority, can it
be proven there is necessity for any
evil. Only those who sympathize
with these 'necessary evils' find defense for them, for the weight of
authoritative medical opinion and
the dictum of the greatest of all
lawgivers are against them.
The impression may have gone
abroad that Princeton is a 'wide
open' town. The fact that the
owners of liquor licenses have been
asked by the constable to conform
more strictly to the License law, is
not to imply that they are any
greater offenders than may be found
in other places. But there have
been drunks and disorderliness on
the streets, which is now stopped.

WHAT IS SAUCE FOR THE GOOSE
IS SAUCE FOR THE GANDER
You have, no doubt, run across a merchant who continually bemoans the practice of buying from the department stores
at Winnipeg and Toronto. He is in with
us always and we don't blame him or any
one else for protesting against the practice. People should patronize the local
merchants—and what we want to impress at this minute, they should get
their envelopes and letter paper and othc r
■printing from the local printer. It is a
funny thing, but it is true nevertheless,
that some of the people that howl most
about building up the town, patronizing
home industries and throwing Eaton's
and Simpson's catalogues in the furnace,
are the first persons to give an order to
the travelling stationery man, who will
supply them at a figure a trifle less than
the local  printer.   Some of these  mer
chants will, doubtless, say, 'O, that is a
dirty hint for me.' The fact of them
saying it was intended for them is the
best of evidence
—Ballarat Bazoo.
that  they are guilty.
The fool stirs up mischief which forty
wise men cannot put down.
A good neighbor is better than a distant kinsman.
FIRE ALARMS, &c.
Four sharp taps on the bell, with slight
pause between each four, will indicate
that the fire is in Ward 1. Two sharp

THE    S
AIEEN   STAR
GOVERNMENT REPORT.
Coal on North Fork of Granite Creek
Will be in Great Demand.
In his report to the Minister of Mines
Charles Camsell, of the Geological Survey and now at work near Otter Flat,
says : A new discovery Of tertiary coal,
of a fairly high grade, was made a couple of years ago on the north fork of
Granite Creek. An English company
obtained a bond on a group of these
claims and spent several thousand dollars iu the work of driving tunnels and
making crosscuts to expose tbe different
beds. Owing to inability to secure an
extension of time on their bond from the
owners, with a view of making thorough
coking tests, operations were suspended
last spring and nothing further has been
done. The work of this company, how-
eyer,' was sufficient to show the great
economic importance of this coal field.
which, though somewhat smaller in ex
tent than the Princeton coal field, contains a coal which will be in great demand for steam purposes as soon as a
railway reaches the Tulameen.
