BIG CEMENT WORKS
East Princeton Takes on New
Life and Will Develop
Thrifty Town.
Modern   Structures,   Park,   Athletic
Grounds, Waterworks, &c, all
Help District.
The birth of a 1 <rge industry, such as
the JB. C. Portland Cement Co. at East
P.-iuee'6n, coincident with the planning
and building o a town containing allied
industiies and conveniences for Ihe purposes of modem civilization, prove beyond all doubt the vast resources
of this district When the parent industry, cement making, was organized and launched by a company of
well known financiers, it was foreseen
th .t a town would inevitably follow. The
pioneer of the great development taking
place in E«t Princeton was the United
Empire Co., which opened up the coal
and copper deposits and make known the
immense limestone and shale bodies of
superior quality for the manufacture of
cement. The buildings are about complete and ihe machinery is arriving, so
that by the first of the new year it is reasonably expected cement making will
begin. Coal mining on a large scale,
also copper ore production, will begin as
soon as a large new company completes
the deal for the United Empire's property As soon as the cement works are
turning out five hundred barrels of product per day an i the coal mine in operation and producing at least three hnndred
tons daily, a large payroll is assured.
This payroll will grow with the development of easilv accessible resources, such
as copper ore, brick clay and timber.
East Princeton will have its own water
works and electricity for lighting and
power. Its foundation is laid on manufacturing and producing industries and
the merit of extensive r..w resources, the
whole served by two competing lines of
railway. It will in no wise injuriously
affect the old town of Princeton, but will
aid in the development of the district
generally; the desire of its promoters being to work in harmony with existing
interests and for the prosperity of all.
The foregoing is the cause, the effect is
Eist Princeton, the townsite of which
has been recently put in the hands o'the
East Princeton Realty Co. for disposition
and sale. This company will spend some
foity thousand dollars in buildings and
improvements and in advertising the
merits of the town as a place for investment One of the first structures will be
a Targe three stoiev hotel on the corner
of Main av. and Cement street, with hotel entrance and stores on Main avenue,
the whole being 100x120 feet.   The ho
tel will be modern in every lespect af-
lording private baths, electric lights,
greenhouse, pool room, lavatory and
elaborate barroom. A steam laundry will
be operated in connection with the hotel
and will also leceive custom work from
the surrounding district. A grocery store
and post office hardware and drug stored,
livery stable, lumber yard, plumber,
painter and papetbanger, all will be es
tablished here in due time. CR.Briggs,
secretary treasurer of the B. C. Portland
Cement Co , will donate a building for
immediate use lor a public school, and a
reserve often acres has been made on the
flat near the Similkameen river which
Will serve as a park, and grounds forath-
letic sports will be provided on the upper
bench.
The East Princeton Realty Co., general agents for the townsite, have their
head office at 330 Rogers' block, Vancouver, and the resident agent is D. G
McCurdy. As soon as cuts, views, halftones, publicity literature and printing
are ready tbe company will begin selling
lots. A large advertisement will appear
in newspapers dealing in.detail with the
price, terms of sale, etc. Already some
beautiful views have been published by
the East Princet 'it Realty Co , showing
pretty scents on the Tulameen river, and
giving a large illustration of the B C
Portland Cement Co.'s buildings Their
publicity scheme will h^ve a beneficial
effect on the whole of the Similkameen
district by directing attention this way.
A portable sawmill has been ordered,
and a fruit cannery wiil be erected next
year. No more necessity for rotting of
fruit in the Okanagan when the Kettle
Valley line is completed and Keremeos
would be supplied with the means to dis
pose of its surplus fruit. East Princeton
is destined to be an industrial center, and
its claims for investment by the public
are fully warranted.
CURATIVE  MINERAL   WATERS
^he/probability Qf a sanitarium being
estaroS^hed at Roany Camp, eight miles
frotnr Princeton, on the Tulameen river,
served by the V. V. & E., is now taking
definite form in a proposed stock company. The mineral springs, six in number, are located there and are saia to con-
tain valuable curative properties. The
analysis of the water, recently obtained,
is as follows, and is expressed in grains
per U. S. gallons:
Silica and.insoluble     I 10
Iron  and   aluminium oxides        04
Sodium sulphate      579
Calcium "ulphate  6957
Maenesium Sulphate   1326
Magnesium  carbonate  11 43
Total grains per U  S gallon 101 19
The only other springs of this kind are
at Carlsbad, Germany, and Apenta, Hun
gary. Fcr liver disorder and other numerous complaiuts these waters are famed
the world over. The Roany springs are
owned by J. O. Coulthard, who has been
asked to nam? terms for them and fifty
acres of ground. /^
KETTLE VALLEY LINE
Contract Let .from   Coldwater
Junction to Coalmont,
Premier States.
Engineer Savs V.,V. & E. will Push
Construction with Several
Steam Shovels.
That a contract has just been let for
the building of that section of the Kettle
Valley lines between Coalmont and Cold-
water Junction; that he had the assurance
of Sir Thomas Shaughnessy that the Kootenay Central railway would be completed before the end of next year; that
during the next five years upwards of
$150,000,000 would be expended on rail
way coustruction in the province, and
that at no distant date the Canadian
Northern railway would enter Golden
and Eevelstoke from the Yellow Head
pass through the Canoe river eountry,
and that the activity of the provincial
government was responsible largely for
this happy state of affairs, were the feature remarks of Sir Richard McBride at a
banquet tendered him by th; Golden
board of trade last week.
J.J.Warren, president of the Kettle
Valley Railway Co., is expected here this
week.
J. H. Kennedy, assistant engineer of
the V.V.&E. railway, which is the Great
Northern line enroute from the Boundary
to Vancouver, was in Grand Forks Monday on his way to Tulameen and Coalmont, the steel head, where he will go
over the line now being h-rfilt between
Coalmont and CoquahaIla>__mmit. 'mere
will be five or six big Syfeani shovels put
to work there in a short time,' said Mr.
Kennedy. 'One of these will probably
be taken from Vancouver, where the
the work which it had to do is completed.
The others will be brought in from other
points on the line It is our intention to
push the work as rapidly as possible.'—
Gazette.
SEES TOWN GROW.
Weslev Gibson, an early resident of
Princeton district, was in town yesterday, after an absence of three years. He
was agieeably surprised at the progress
shown in that time He brought a bunc-b
of horses frnry Hone to be wintered on
Grandview ranch, both owned by his
brtrtber Luke, who carries on a large
freighting, packing and ferry business in
that thriving and prospective railway
center on the Fraser Mr Gibson states
that some four miles of T.P R. road were
built from the Hope side this season.
When he came over the summit there
were 18 inches of snow, and he is likely
to be the last traveler on return today for
the season of 1912, as snow is falling fast,
and 16 feet on the level is not uncommon.
IN WOMAN'S REALM.
The Pennsylvania Federation of Woman's Clubs has put woman suffrage on its
program as one of the live questions to
be discussed at the annual meeting in
Williamsport, and the civic clubs of the
state are inserting it in their year books.
The chairman of the Massachusetts
Democratic State Committee, in a public
address at Haverhill, a few days ago, declared himself in favor of woman's suffrage, and said that the time had come
when the franchise should be extended
to women.
Winston Churchill, the distinguished
author, who has been nominated for governor of New Hampshire on the progressive ticket, is an active suffragist, and a
member of the New Hampshire Men's
League for Woman Suffrage. Mr. and
Mrs. Churchill toured the state in behalf
of votes for women during the recent
campaign in New Hampshire.
The annual Social Democratic convention which has just closed at Stockholm
unanimously passed a woman suffrage
resolution; which pledged the party,s
members in the Swedish parliament to
fight for the woman suffrage bill as one
of the most important issues of the coming session.
THE WIDE WORLD
The big steel industries of Canada are
asking for a higher tariff on imported
steel, claiming that they could not compete with the underselling competition of
the United States Steel trust. Finance
Minister White looks favorably on the
further protection of the Canadian indus
tries.
Lord Roberts, in spite of his 80 years,
is touring England in advocacy of conscription, or national military service.
Many take exception-to his method and
to his spread of the fear of Germany's
warlike intentions.
The Dominion government has 13 hy.
drographic survey parties at work in
British Columbia collecting data of the
amount of water power available on rivers and streams.
Medicine men say flies caused spread of j
infantile paralysis to monkeys. Oh! those
awful flies.
Neil Thompson saved the situation at I
Chopaka when the engine on the 'Mo- Op
lasses LimitedVbroke down. Resource-
ful and geniurlike, he took a bolt out of
a dump car and some hay wire, repairing the lame engine so that the train
could pull out. Jim Hill should give
him a life pass.
.  The  Princeton  hotel is now receiving
its furniture and will open soon.

SPEAK THE ' GOOD WORD.'
The optimism with which nearly
everyone  looks upon the future of
Princeton and dtstrict is a great incentive to investors and homebuild-
ers.    Nothing  could   be more  inspiring   to   a  stranger   within the
gates than to   note  a tone of glow -
iug enthusiasm among citizens.    It
is   this tone   which encourages the
establishment    of   great   industries
and builds  big cities.    Along with
all  genuine   optimism   there is the
fundamental   and  innate   belief   in
the   worth  and   truth of the thing
spoken   of, otherwise   it would fall
fiat on the ears xSKlisteners and  fail
in-conviction'i> Having the natural
resources   in   such   evident   abundance ; climate,   scenery   and game
to suit tastes  of the  most exacting
persons,    ttu-re    remains   only   the
necessity   for   appropriate publicity
to bring results.    One form of publicity   that overtops   any   other   is
the   personal   'good word'   of each
resident, extolling and demonstrating   the  great   possibilities   of  the
town and district and giving praise
and    honor    to   those   who   have
by   their   industry,   business   foresight   and  honest   effort developed
and made known those possibilities.
It is not in the nature of a knocker
to build up a town or country—it is
the optimist who builds and inspires
and is  always   in  the  van of progress.    The poor, splenetic knocker
with downcast look and  wandering
speech, and  the  carping critic who
never does  anything   but criticize,
are found in every community : the
flies   on  the  wheels of reform and
progress.     It   is  the   shoulder to
shoulder principle  in  the goahead
people that counts; this is the constructive element that brushes aside
the parasitic creature and pushes on
to victory and the successful end.
fearful  and   terrified    condition   of
mind.    They   are   scared    'out   of
their boots'   lest   the   bogie man of
Germany gobbles them up.    In the
last  stages   of   senility   and   decay
Lord   'Bobs' and Lord 'Charlie' are
crying and whining about the poor
condition of the army and navy and
Sir Rodmond Says : 'England is on
her   knees   begging  Canada for assistance.'    How silly all this quaking fear appears  when it is remembered that Britain  has far less public debt   than   any  of the great nations and is the mouey lender to all
the world.    Assistance from all the
colonies  came   freely   to the aid of
the British   troops  in quelling the
stubborn, bellicose Boer.    The same
spirit  exists  now among the 'colonials' and though they are too poor
to  contribute   money,   (having to.
borrow   continually    from   the   old
land)   still  they  are  ready  to lay
down  their   lives  as  on   the blood
stained' veldt   and   help defend the
empire.     Britain   needs  our  loyal
sons far more   than our dollars and
many believe  she   is too proud and
independent to accept a gift of money from  poor  colonials.     Britain's
unparalleled   wealth   and   independence are seen   in  the fact that she
never   borrows   from other nations.
It is not   money   she requires from
the  colonies.     She  requires  their
cooperation   and   that  can only be
obtained with undeviating certainty
by admitting them into her councils
and  according   an   equal  sayso to
every member of the   family of empire.    Fear of any enemy is an admission   of weakness or inferiority.
The  gentlemen   mentioned   above
are   weakling scaremongers, not to
be    classed   with    Kitchener   and
Fisher, whose quiet attitude is born
of   a   consciousness   which   knows
neither   fear   nor   gloomy despondency. 'Wik

THE BRAVE ARE HOT FEARFUL.
When the doctrine of universal
peace is advocated with tbe zeal that
the subject deserves there will be
a scampering to cover of the sycophant pressand those statesmen who

Wake up, Canada !
With  ever increasing  volume it
is   being   demonstrated   that   good
thoughts are the power of omnipotent,'  ever   present  Mind,   displacing misery  for   happiness, sickness
for health, poverty for plenty, ignorance  for  wisdom,   hate for  love.
-Never close the door in the face of
angel   visitants — good   thoughts.
There  is   no life,   truth, or intelligence in matter, then why attribute
to it   any   power or potency while
there is omnipotent God.    Scientific
Christianity  proves  itself by  signs
following, it is not a  dead  religion
giving   no   proof of divine  origin.
The spiritual   age is here and man
is  beginning   to  realize  that he is
spirit, made in the image  and likeness  of Spirit,   God.    The demonstrations of spirit must soon become
the all absorbing topic.

DOES FEAR TURN TO HATRED?
Editor Star—pir : My attention
has been draw, to your correspondent's
letter under the date of September II, in
reply to a previous one of mine. It bad
been overlooked, as I was away from
home at the time of the issue. In reply
I would say that the questiou is a large
one and difficult to explain in the short
space allowed in this correspondence.
Your correspondent has shifted the base
from which he started. There is a principle in all law that punishment follows
transgression, not that the law delights
in causing pain, but as a corrective. A
father corrects a child for its good, not
for the sake of causing pain; if a child being grown np neglects the principles
that underlay the direction of the father,
he inevitably comes uuder the principles
of other laws.
When God created man, every thing
that he made was 'very good.' Of the
origin of evil we have no knowledge, it
was present in the world at man's creation. God gave man one law for his
guidance, this was disregarded, the in-
I evitable consequences followed, the pun-
' ishment lesulted from lack of fear; had
, fear exercised its proper influence, there
would have been obedience, as an ac-
j knowledgement of a higher knowledge
j and more perfect attainment. When fear
has wrought its perfect work, it brings
forth love; the more perfect the fear, the
greater the love; when men shall have
learned to love their neighbors as themselves, there will be no need of laws; but
while men will, in the absence of love,
seek to exalt themselves at the expense
of their neighbors, laws will be necessary. If men would only be guided
by the laws of God, there would be per
feet harmony in the world; hut while
men will follow the temptation of the
under world, laws will be necessary. A
man who places no constraint upon himself will never know what it is to walk in
the perfect law of God.
If Mr. Nathan   could   only accept this
fact,  he  would  stand on a surer foundation.    Yours truly. Mark Tuk.ES.

The Influence of the Cinematograph.—
A  striking illustration   of the influence
of the  ubiquitous  cinematograph is  reported by the American consulate at Belgrade.    American fashions have recently
become very popular with the young men
of that  cit\; there  is an unprecedented
demand ai the local shops for hats, boots
and   ether   wearing   apparel   similar to
that   in   vogue  in the United States; and
the American style  of hair cutting has
come into  favor.    These innovations are
unmistakably   the result  of the  exhibition of moving pictures of American ori-
erin.    The obvious  moral   of all this, as
consul   points  out,  is that the cinematograph might be used to great advantage in advertising all kinds of American
products. For instance, pictures of American agricultural machinery in  operation
would probably  create a  great  demand
for the thing itself.
