. Miss C. J. Manly is engaged to teach
in public school, beginning as soon as
she arrives, which is expected any day,
from Halifax, N.S. She holds a first
class~certi6cats_and is a music teacher,
r^
The large appropriations made by the
government at the recent sitting of the
local legislature for public works is now
available for actual service in the construction of roads, bridges, &c. Hon.
Mr. Taylor, Minister of Public Works,
besides spending $40,000 on improved
road making machinery will engage men
qualified in the art of road making, so
that any construction or improvements
will be of a permanent character.
The inter-provincial trunk road program will have the snug sum of $50,-000
to spend in beginning this great road
across the province to Alberta.*" The Colonist says regarding it: ' Passing first
through Delta and Chilliwack the trunk
road in question will primarily utilize
the famous Westminster-Yale highway
to the his^ric town of Hope. Thence
access is gained by the old Sappers and
Miners' road, still in good condition, to
the Hope mountains. There is then a
slight hiatus in the plan, in consequence
of the necessity of obtaining further informative data as to the lowest possible
gradients on the east side of Hope mountains, the department having already
secured its necessary information with
regard to comparative snowfall and kindred essential details. The section thus
requiring a further prosecution of engineer's investigations durin g the approach-
ing summer, lies between Hope and
Princeton, from which latter embryo city
connection will be had with Trail by
roads already constructed.'
That Mr. Shatford, the member for
Similkameen, fully deserves the congratulations that he is daily receiving from
his constituents upon his success in securing adequate appropriatious for the development of his great district is evidenced by the apportionments for roads
alone, which include_&5ooo for the
Princeton-Copper Mountain road ; #2dOo
for a toad from Five-Mile creek to
Princeton ; $3000 for the Granite creek
road ; $6000 for the Nine-Mile road;
$5000 for the Princeton-Fish lake road.
plot too suggestive and too realistic where
a mere hint would have been ample.
Human depravity needs not to be flaunted
from the stage, enough of that is observable in any town. The play was well
staged and admirably acted. The Eck-
hardt's are a clever, clean company and
when they come again it is hoped they
will present comedy and vaudeville specialties.
NIGHTHAWK NOTES.
THE PLAYS BY ECKHARDTS.
The Eckhardt Theatrical company
played two nights last week in the I.O.
O.F. hall to large and appreciative audiences. The first play, 'Brown 's in Town,'
evoked continuous laughter and was thoroughly enjoyed. 'Paid in Full' is rather
heavy and serious, with a long drawn out

(From Our Special Correspondent.)
Nighthawk, Wash., March 24.—Almost
all the cattle ranchers at the boundary
and lower Similkameen have turned their
stock out. The range is in fine condir-
tion, grass being quite five inches high.
Ploughing and seeding are in full swing
now.
As the suspension foot bridge across the
Similkameen river at Nighthawk was
being repaired and tightened up on Tuesday last it suddenly turned turtle
Luckily no one was on the bridge at the
time. Pedestrians have to resort to the
ferry again.
Measles have been prevalent lately at
Oroville, but patients are now nearly all
convalescent.
The Similkameen river has raised considerably and is very muddy, consequently mosquitoes are beginning to
show, and make themselves disagreeable.
Archie McDonald, a miner who worked
at the Nightnawk mine, killed himself at
Loom \s Saturday night by a revolve
shot through the head. He* had received
a lettej from his sister earlier in the day
and seemed depressed after reading it.
While playing cards in the afternoon he
remarked that he would never deal
again. He was unmarried. The body
will be sent east, where relatives live, for
burial.
' It is to be regretted, if the rumor be
true, that the Okanagan Electric Railway from Nighthawk to Conconnlly is
likely to fall through, as some of the people are asking too much for their rightofway. Indian Edwards, who lives about
six miles from Nighthawk, demands
$4000 for fmriighlufway through his orchard, which consists of 83 bearing fruit
trees. I have the abeve on good authority.
Bert Irwin was a welcome visitor to the
lower Similkameen recently.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., has arrived at
Penticton from his parliamentary duties
at Victoria. He is expected to come to

I We have money
&.   To^invest in any sound proposition
will be no tariff war between the
cfrrited States and Canada will be
-received with gratitude by every
intelligent and peace-loving subject
in both countries. It is a great
triumph of diplomacy on the part
of the Hon. Mr. Fielding, the
Canadian representative, to have
presented his case at the conference
with President Taft in such^a way
as to give no cause for offence, and
at the same time firmly uphold the
rights . of his country. On the
other hand it is a tribute o£ wisdom
and great statesmanship, as becomes
a powerful and enlightened nation,
for President Taft to treat the whole
question in1 a spirit of friendship
and fair'play. He says : ' The relations between these two countries
have been all wrong. Instead of
indifference or suspicion or unfriendliness there should be as much
freedom of trade between our two
peoples as is consistent with the
fiscal' policies of the two countries-.
I do not ask who^w^s^i^ty^wrong
in the past, but for myself; and my
Administration I can say-that we
have nothing but' respect and ad
miration for the way Canadians are
taking hold of their problems and
developing their status in the Empire^;
With a common language, com-
mou aspirations and common interests .regarding trade there-.is every
reason for the friendliest relations
between Canada and the United
States. If ever two nations had
good reasons for razing the tariff
walbbetween them it is these two
countries. The • adoption of reciprocal free trade between the United
States and Canada'^would wipe out
the  cause   for   nine-tenths  of   the
1
friction now occurring and would
place them on a basis tending toward everlasting peace. With such
a President as Taft and the conciliatory spirit of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and his cabinet, who in the past
have gone more than half way to
meet the U.S. in settlement of tariff
and other international disputes'
Star commends to the consideration of both governments the early
adoption of reciprocal free trade,
giving to the world a real lesson in
neighborly friendship and good will:
and exemplifying the doctrine of
universal free trade and with it
fallows uriversal peace. There is
no  doubt   that   with free trade l.e-
patrontee home,, industries is not
entitled to any sympathy when citizens send their cash to eastern department stores. First do the thing
that you want other people to do.
then you have the double leverage
in power of example and forcible
argument.

The B.C. government, in line
with its usual progressiveness, is;
about to establish a bureau of publicity and appoint a publicity commissioner. The object is to attract;
settlers, investors and industries.
That the government appreciates
advertising it is proposed to establish publicity offices in Winnipeg,
Toronto and Montreal, in cfrarge of
competent officials.,, w^p.r,w,ill arlver,-

Here is an opportunity for the
Princeton board of tradt' !to place
softie literature regarding this district where it will do most good and
obtain wide distribution. n
Two auto stages, capable of carrying twenty passengers each and
makiug an average of 15 miles or
more an hour, will begin service on
the Cariboo road about May 1st.
In ten hours these autos will travel
to Soda Creek, which now takes
two days by horse stage. This is
a pointer for some of the stage lines
operating, in tp.Princeton.
The Dominion government has
appropriated $50,000 to be used in
experimenting with the smelting of
zinc. Through' 'Unscientific methods of treating zinc.ores great loss
is experienced and it is to avoid
this that experiments, are to be
made^ the outcome of which will
be awaited with' interest by owners
of zinc propositions in Princeton
district.
.To'Dr. Macdonaid, editor of the
Globe, Toronto, President Taft recently said : ' I want you to tell Sir
Wilfrid Laurier that if this tariff
difficulty is bridged I shall be prepared to take the responsibility for
reopening negotiations for reciprocal free trade, which he opened
years ago. * * If he'll meet me
I'll go more than half way to find
a better basis for trade.' Well said,
Peacemaker Taft. A few more like

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
When a person's patriotism or loyalty
to their town does not reach the pocket
it is shallow stuff and does not amount to
much.
In your own lrtfcle sphere and in your{
own modest way help to make someone
better and-brighter—life is too short and
too serious -to be lived withont making
an effort to,.uplift the fallen, comfort the
sick and afflicted and generally to make
the burden lighten
If your room is well lighted some glim
