 „IF""
g Princeton coal is precious, hence the term 'black diamonds.'
There is danger in extremes, moderation is always safer.
Coal is the backbone  and mainstay of Princeton and six different coal companies are wise to this fact—Thousands of miners will
yet be emplcyed in this district in the production of coal and the manufacture of coke—Metalliferous mines in the vicinity.

an end for the winter. The remaining

will be resumed next June.
SINKING SHAFT TO COAL
STRATA.
The work of sinking a shaft on the
Chiiliwzck-Princeton Coal Co's property
is steadily making progress toward the
underlying strata of coal. Manager W
Wilson is making an excellent ?ob of the
shaft which must yet be the means of
conveying a large tonnage of coal to the
surface as weil as stand the test of time.
Stratum of sandstone and shale, in which
are small protruding fissures of coal, are
successively encountered, all indicative
of approach to the existing coal body.
The depth now attained, something over
sixty feet, leaves some thirty feet to go
before the river level is reached, immediately under which coal may be expected. But it is the merest guesswork to
say within a few feet where the coal lies.
It is there and Mr. Wilson is properly
going after it.
CARLSON-KING.
At the Similkameen hotel, Hedley, at
5 o'clock, Monday, 21st inst., the marriage of Mr. C. A. Carlson to Miss
Matilla King, was celebrated in the presence of intimate friends. Miss A. Creel-
man made a dainty bridesmaid, while Mr.
Frank Dollemore ably supported the
groom during the momentous occasion.
The contrabting parties are popular
Princetonians and will have the congratulations of many friends, to which Star
contributes earnest wishes for a long and
happy married life. Rev. Geo. Kinney
tied the marital knot.
A CORRECTION AND EXPLANATION.
David Whitney is the name that should
read instead of P. Guin^n as erroneously
mentioned in last week's Star in connection with a scalding accident. In ex
pressing apology to Mr Guinan and the
transference of onr sympathy to Mr.
Whitney it may be stated that the Star
has not been able for some years to employ that much abused yet usefnl person,
the proofreader, hence the occasional and
sometimes serious, errors which readers
may by close scrutiny discover at rare
intervals. In the publication of the Star
one man has to do the work of three.
Economy is stretched to the limit. In
the preparation of reading matter neither
pen nor paper is used, the human machine called 'typo' just sits before his
case and transfers thought hot from the
tinpanum containing the grey matter to
cold type. While this process is the very
essence of economy, it is subject to inaccuracies and error that only the keen
eyed proofreader can detect.
SHAKESPEARE'S IDEAL COMEDY
—' TWELFTH NIGHT.'
Students and lovers of the immortal
Shakespeare in Princeton will have the
rare opportnnity of seeing and hearing
that most picturesque and delightful
of comedies, Twelfth Night,' next Sat
urday night, 261I1 inst , under the direction of C. P. Walker Presented by a
Company of experienced Shakespearian
actors, with a most elaborate costume
and scenic eqnipmcnt, 'Twelfth Night is
ideal entertainment. The company are
the famous English players with Wm.
Yule, the popular Canadian comedian,
and Violet Eddv. a young actress, especially engaged for the roles of Sir Toby
Belch and Viola.
THE ATHLETIC WORLD.
The November number of The Athletic World, published by W. T- Taylor,
Limited, Woodstock, Ont., which has
just reached this office, is an exceptionally good one, and seems to indicate that
the policy of steady improvement which
this magazine has so far carried out so
well, will continue in the future. The
various occurrences of interest in the
Canadian sporting world are well described and attention is also paid to
events in other countries, while practically every branch of sport is covered.
Lovers of athletics will do well to get
this number, in which will be found
something to interest everyone, whatever
particular field of sport he favors.
NEWSPAPER AT HOPE.
No. 1 of the Hope News is the latest
addition to the newspaper kingdom* it
is a bright four-page paper, the Articles
bearing the impress of a hand^that has
pushed tbe editorial pen before. Hope
is stamped in every line of its composition. Star hopes that rhis new evangel
of hope, just cradled in Hope, will ever
hold high the torch which brings hope
to the weary and light to all. The old
town of Hope is at last wakening to the
tread of goldhunters bound for Steamboat mountaih.   Good luck, brother May.
Evangelistic services are running in
the boundary towns. Why not also in
Princeton and put life in.the 'dry bones.'
THE WEEKLY GRIST

Road Building in
this Section.
Deer Plentiful and Moving to Lower
Altitudes—Watchmaker
Opens Up.
The Bank of Commerce has issued a
handy vest pocket edition coutainiug
memoranda space, calendar and hints
on banking, all of which gives the booklet a value which customers are sure to
appreciate.
The social held at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Marlow in aid of the hospital fund,
was a great success from every standpoint. The proceeds amounted to $43.65
net.
The recent snowstorm drov . deer out
of their mouutain retreats and many of
them fell to the aim of hunters from
town. Venison this year is fat, sweet,
tender and juicy, a food fit for the gods.
Truly, the Similkameen is a favored district, with its abundance of fish and
game and grand mountain ranges. Here
are peaks unconquered by man, the home
of the goat and grizzly. The Alpine
club of Canada ought to have a try at
some of the virgin peaks of Hope mountains before the prospector in his mad,
quest for gold desecrates them with pick
and shovel.
Mrs. and Miss Tree left last week for
a visit to relatives in Wisconsin.
Rev. G. R. B. Kinney, of Keremeos,
preached in the I.O.O.F. hall last Sun
day evening, it being the occasion of his
monthly visit. Four preachers of the
gospel held forth last Sunday in Princeton. Surely good, ripe fruit should follow this abundant seed scattering.
E. Waterman has moved his family
into the second story apartments of the
Princeton Coal & Land Co's offices.
NOVEMBER ROD AND GUN.
While big game hunting supplies tbe
dominant note in the November number
of Rod and Gun in Canada, published
by W. J. Taylor, Limited, Woodstock,
Out., there is in the same issue, plentv of
material for sportsmen who are not able,
for various reasons, to go after moose,
sheep, goat, deer or bear. In the opening article, Bonnycastle Dale tells how
Indian boys make clever hunters, trappers and fishermen and with what skill
they decimate the inhabitants of the
forest. Fxploration in the Nepigon
country; fishing aud mountaineering
topics, with many other papers and some
fine verses, fill a number which should
find its   way   into all hunting   camps.
Sportsmen, wherever they may be found,
can enjoy some pleasant half hours by
dipping into its contents, assured that'
from beginning to end they will find
much to attract and interest them. The
completeness of the issne in covering the
whole wide field of Canadian sport gives
it distinction and goes far to account for
the standing the Magazine has won and
continues to deserve.
PUBLIC ROADS AND OTHER
WORKS.
H. A. Turner, government road superintendent, was in town this week looking
over the season's work in this section.
He has many applications from individuals for improvements in front of their
property or place of business, so many
that if a tithe of them were granted the
general good would be sacrificed for some
selfish person's benefit. Mr. Turner
readily distinguishes between the legitimate needs of the public and the designing self-seeker whose claims for improvements are of purely personal interest.
Road construction is about over for this
year. Theamonnt of appropriations and
the work accomplished show a high state
of efficiency and a real desire to provide
this district with facilities for development of its mineral and agricultural resources.
OBITUARY.
Word has been received of the death of
Hugh Cowan at San Francisco, where he
had gone from Princeton about a month
ago hoping to be benefitted by the California climate. He was afflicted with.
Bright's disease for the past two years
and his de_th was not unexpected. De,-
cease^was a pioneer of Princeton, carrying on the buifness of barber during
his residence here. A large number of
friends will miss the familiar form and
good citizen. The remains will arrive
this week when interment will be coh-
ducted by Oddfellows, of which order he
was a dutiful brother. To relatives in
Scotland Star extends sincere sympathy.
WATCHMAKERI AND JEWELER.
L. T. Joudrey has taken over the
watch aud jewelry business formerly conducted by H. A. Massonat, who had to
leave on account of ill health, and is
prepared to execute all orders. Mr. Joudrey is a graduate of the Canadian Horological Institute and for the past year
has been associated with his brother.also
in the jewelry business at Chilliwack.
Prior to that he was in the employ of
Ryrie Bros., Toronto. He is putting m
a god stock and intends giving special
attention to the repair business—In Mas-
onat's old stand, French building.
Three big pack trains rre running out
of Hope regularly to the great gold camp

Hon. Frank Oliver,  Minister of
the Interior, was recently banqueted by the employees of his department,   a    mark of  the  esteem  in

it was  thirty  3-ears  ago wheu he
was boss of one  poor  lone  printer

printed in six-point on paper about
foolscap in size.    In those days he
used  considerable   hard language,

not concerned as to such an agreement, but it is vitally concerned in
having quick construction and a direct route. There must not be any
unnecessary delay or the powers of
gentle, yet firm, persuasion will
itave to be exercised by the government. Premier Laurier has given

was a workingmau on the Winnipeg Free Press in the early days
and when he struck out with his
bride in a prairie schooner into the
great lone west he was accumulating those characteristics which have
marked him as a man of perseverance, force and honesty, never
seeming to forget the ranks from
which he came. Our wish is that
in these later days his life maybe
one continuous banquet of victory,
chicken, progress, spring pig and
free trade.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Sunset 'Bruce' feels badly because he and poor old John Oliver
could not influence any sane voters
in support of their railroad scheme
during last election. If that great
lucubration of these . mastodonic
minds had carried there would not
have been a Canadian Northern
spending millions of dollars in construction and development of the
country, not a shovelful of muck
would have been lifted,except what
Bruce would throw at those who
differed from him, no Port Mann,
no expansion, no nothing. Alas !
poor Bruce, what tears he has shed
over the Similkameen, and no sympathetic hand to wipe them away.
Take a tumble, Bruce ! Forget the
past and your silly imaginative
toboggan slide built by the government down Hope mountains; forget all the untruthful things you
penned about the Kettle Valley
railway. Do not break out into a
rash because none of your dire
prophecies were fulfilled. The future is rosy, Bruce, and the country
was never more prosperous.     Be
The time to advertise is all the
time. Stopping an ad. to save
money is like stopping a clock to
save time. Advertising compels
people to think of you. If advertising is not a profitable investment
why do so many successful business
meu in all lines keep continuously
at it ? Are they in error or are
you ? 'Why cut off your nose to
spite your face. Advertising builds
up a town. To refuse to advertise
because the paper is owned by So-
and-so is so childish and narrow
that it creates a grin among the
go-aheads. The wide-awake business man advertises, first, because
it is of direct benefit to himself,
secondly, because it benefits the
town as reflected through the newspaper.

GOOD ADVICE.
The following from the Vancouver
Mail is well worthy of careful attention
by both men and women and particularly
ot those who Live (spell it with a capital L) in the Jimhilkameeu valley :
If von are a member of the Board of
Trade or the Civic Improvement League
or a regiment or a chnrch or a fraternity
lodge, be an active member. Don't put
your name down and put your money
up and then give it no further thought.
Don't join unless you are willing and
ready to help by active service. Don't
be a drone or a fignrehead ; don't be a
kicker and a knocker ; do something to
advance its objects. Work on a committee and work hard. If you are a member
of the Board of Trade, be an active member ; shoulder some of the responsibilities
of membership. Paying your fees helps
of course ; but pay them promptly and
then place yourself and services at the
disposal of council and executive and
work for the general good.
