WHY WASTE TIME?
Tardy Construction of V.,V.
& E. Delays Progress
of Country.
Canadian Northern and Kettle Valley
Lines  Push Work —Spur to
United Empire.
J. H. Kennedy, chief construction engineer of the V.,V. & E., arrived in town
last Thursday, having made the journey
from Hope via Coquihalla Pass and down
Otter Valley. He admitted that a large
reduction in the force of laborers had
been made on this end as well as on the
Abbotsford end. It was due to instructions from the office of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, railway contractors, Seattle.
Grading-had been well advanced along
Sutnas prairie and around the north
shore of Sumas lake when the order
came. One hundred men will be retained
on each end ; no new work being permitted for the present.
No engineer or other employee of the
Great Northern or any other railway company is supposed to know anything for
publication when a question of policy is
involved Behind the policy of the
Great Northern stands President Hill and
he is as dumb as a sphinx just now.
But tbe people of southern B.C. want to
know what is the cause of the delay in
construction. Through parliament they
have given Mr. Hill a charter and it is
no light matter for him to tear that docn-
ment in shreds, the spirit and essence of
which is time. The V.,V. & E. must be
built continuously and speedily, for it
was never intended that construction
should proceed leisurely and at the
caprice of some disgruntled railway president. It is poor revenge for President
Hill to delay construction of the V.,V.
& E. because of adverse railway legislation in the United States—a statement
which seems to have gained credence
with the press. The prosperity of this
country depends on the early completion of the V.,V. & E. to the coast, and
too much time has already been frittered
away in building some 150 miles in 5
years. Star would urge upon the Board
of Trade the necessity of resolving on
this question and, as they say in western
parlanee, 'rope' Jim Hill until he makes
better time on construction.
The Canadian Northern and the C P.P..
• (K.V.R.) are both pushing construction
with all the help available. It is estimated the C N. will have 90 miles of
grading done this fall and 25 on the K.
V. by the C.P.R.
While Mr. Kennedy, C. E., was here
last week he made a reconnaissance of
the proposed spur from the main line of
the V.,V. & E. at Allison to the United
Empire coal mine and the projected
cement works on Onemile. The distance
is about 1!_ miles.
AUTO ANNIHILATES DISTANCE.
Whizz ! zip ! and a clond of dust in its
wake, was the way an auto passenger car
went through town Tuesday to catch the
Great Northern train ready to pull out
from the station. Messrs. Gregory.
Hincks, Rankin and Cleveland were the
passengers while Charley Howse was at
the wheel and 'Dayj___Qtocl_et__i_t-)n the
safety valve. It was a spectacular run
against—time, the—Whole journey of 71
miles being covered in 4 hours, 30 minutes and 17 seconds. There was not a
hitch or delay, the machine doing its
climbing and curving with perfect relia
bility and ease, proofs of the Russell's
splendid mechanism and durability. The
usual time taken to drive in a buggy to
Merritt is one and a half davs.

Granite Creek, Aug. 22.—W. L. Parrish and family left for Winnipeg last
week via Vancouver. Mr. and Mrs.
Fraser accompanied them to Vancouver
where their daughter Marjorie will te
placed in school.
O. L. Knight of Rossland, N. Kelsey
and B. Mills of Oroville, arrived in Granite Saturday last to tnstall a diamond
drill on the property of the Columbia
Coal & Coke Co.
W. P. Norrie leaves tomorrow for Coleman, Alb., but will not return alone.
A good step in the right direction.
Mr. Nelms, Miss Reece and Miss Smedley, ot Chilliwack, were visitors to Granite on Sunday.
H. O. Heimbecker of Winnipeg arrived
in Granite on the 19th to take the position of bookkeeper for the C.C.C. Co.
A party of five left Granite on Saturday for Bear lake returning Sunday night
with beaming countenances and 3 fish.
As a result of the hard ride Mr. Clute is

Lead well Defined   and Traced for
2,200 Eeet—Rich Strike in
Skagit Country*
Ben Baker has shown the existence of
two leads on Whipsaw claim, which ad?
joins the Lucky Pair group on the north.
Knight & Day have always believed that
two leads traversed this group, but it remained for Ben Baker to prove it, which
he has conclusively done in his assessment work. The leads enter the Lucky
Pair about 250 feet apart. Naturally
enough, the owners of the Lucky Pair
are pleased with the discovery as it enhances the value of their property.
They intend to follow up Ben's good
work and trace this second lead through
the Lucky Pair group. One of the leads
carries pure galena. The main lead of
the Lucky Pair is now traceable 2200
feet.
Dick Fitzgerald was in town Monday
from Whipsaw camp, where he has been
working on the Centre Star group. He
has strnck a big dyke of ore, running
through which are streaks of pure galena.
There are evidences that the ore body,
which, in all probability will prove to be"
the mother lode, is not far away. He
has done considerable open cutting and
is now at work on a tunnel, with wnich
he hopes to tap the lead. Fitz is a hard
worker and is deserving generous reward
out of earth's treasure vaults.
Jim Snowden and Leo McMullen are
elated over their recent discovery of a
silver lead in the Skagit country, where
they have been prospecting. Their locations were made just south of the inter
national boundary line in Washington
and are, doubtless, continuations of the
celebrated silver-lead property owned by
Luke Gibson on the B. C. side of the

' PIEEEE OF THE PLAINS.'
Dramatized from a Story of Pioneer
Life on the Western Plains.
With the presentation of 'Pierre of the
Plains' by the Harold Nelson Company
at the I.O.O.F. hall next Friday, Aug.
26, the pinnacle of local interest has been
reached. Mr. Nelson is Canada's foremost actor-dramatist, is the pioneer producer of palatable entertainment of the
educational and highly moral sort, and is
perhaps the only star who has the advancement of theatrical matters in this
section of the country at heart.   This
was demonstrated when he closed his run
of unprecedented success August 1st at
the Beck theatre, Bellingham.
The Beck theatre and the Garrick.
theatre at San Francisco have been put
at Mr. Nelson'z disposal as producing
houses and at high admission prices his
efforts have won favor aud unlimited engagements. Despite these alluring inducements he has induced his manager,
G. G. Garrette, to arrange his time so as
to permit of the present tour.
'Pierre of the Plains' is Mr. Nelson's
masterpiece. It deals with stirring scenes
on the border in the days of the early
settlers. Pierre, played by Mr. Nelson,
is a half breed who has been much maligned by enemies in the eyeVbf Jen,
the daughter of a road house settler.
Pierre loves the girl devotedly without
telling her, until he has proven his cour-
ageousness in a tragedy that serves as a
thrilling climax. The end Sr a happy
one for all concerned. In the excellent
supporting company Miss Grace Johnson,
the beautiful young leading lady, who
won many laurels with the Nelson Company iu 'Frisco and Bellingham, gives a
beautiful rendering of the character of
'Jen.' Reserved seats $_vgeneral admission 75c, children 25c, at_ the A. E.

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Bill Scruby was recently seen ,in, Spokane and seemed to be enjoying life.
That must have been an interesting
'game of lawn tennis reported from Merritt between Tommy Day of Princeton
and Peck MacSwain, What time they
were not chasing the ball they were
argufying social, economic and political
questions, until finally the Princeton man
gave his opponent what the French call
a 'coup de grass' thus ending the game
before it was finished.
P. W. Gregory, P.L.S., arrived in town
Tuesday from Vancouver.
R. Soutter is at Tulameen frescoing
the Tulameen hotel. He is much missed
in Piinceton by tillicums.
O. Rain is somewhat under the weather
with a touch of rheumatism which laid
him up.
Every knock is a boost from the chronic
knocker.
When you see a bachelor filling a house
with home comforts, no doubt he is contemplating an important change in his
mode of life. .

Geo. Cunningham, superintendent fo*;

THE  INTERPROVINCIAL   ROAD.
The selection of a route for the
interprovincial road is a matter of
great importance to the district
through which it will pass. It is
the link which will connect Hope
with Princeton that offers considerable difficulty in locating, not only
on account of the mountainous
nature of the country but also to
satisfy the various interests affected
by the location of the road. At
present the Minister of Works, assisted by Mr. Shatford, M.P.P.,
is securing such information as will
make the route chosen the very best
available and absolutely safeguard
all interests. Explorations are now
being made to this end, which with
data already at hand will enable
the locating engineer to proceed
with. undeviating certainty ag to
the best route.
It is generally admitted that west
and south ot Princeton, in the watershed of the Similkameen river,
including the valleys of the Roche
and Pasayton, there are immense
and varied natural resources which
rrequire a wagon road to assist in
making productive. Then, there
is the important consideration of
elevation over Hope mountains.
Low grades and snowfall are factors
of vital concern in crossing a mountain range and these can best be
obtained or avoided by following
least elevation. According to the
■railway survey the lowest pass in
the Hope range is found via the
southern route which leads to Hope
following Silver creek.
The deciding principle in locating
the interprovincial trunk road between Princeton and Hope will, no
doubt, be directness and benefit to
local interests. It is expected that
a large automobile traffic will develop aud that ore and other freight
will be hauled on it. A water grade
should be maintained wherever pos-
, sible, the rivers and creeks affording a downhill pull for all tributary tonnage. The best road is
the cheapest and if laid out properly
will never require changing. The
old  style  of tortuous,  up-hill and
' down-dale road, which usually followed the line of least resistance in
construction, is a source of annoyance, and is subject to costly and
•continuous betterment and improvement. Even if the initial cost of
a road be more, providing it is
located where nature and common
sense design it to be, it is cheaper
-because of its  permanency and far
more satisfactory for  travellers and
freighters.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The best citizens are those who
have pride in every form of civic
progress. Anything for the general weal will have their sympathy
and support.
Greed aud graft are responsible
for many a politician's downfall and
complete obliteration. In private
life the way is strewn with moral
wrecks from the same causes.
What are you doing to remedy
these evils ?
Don't begrudge the enterprising
and industrious man his dollars—
make a few yourself.

samples of the ore which outcrops on
their claims, in which native silver, chal-
copyrites and lead oxide are plainly seen.
This section of country is very much
broken and almost inaccessible with
pack horses, but it has a highly mineralized cast and is an attractive field for
prospectors.
Pouwels & Bonniver are mining on the
Red Star at Roche river and now have
about $7,000 in ore on the dump. They
have got a mine, but there is neither
smelter, railroad or wagon road to help
them out.
R. Stevenson's claim, the Sardis lies
between the Centre Star and the S &. M
and is undoubtedly in Hue with the lead
which is believed to underlie the whole
string of claims along the Whipsaw valley.
Billy Fearless has done a pile of work
on the Long Chance and is encouraged
with the prospects. In his case faith and
works will have their good effect and the
whole country profit by his humble
labors.
Sam Spencer and Jack Crowley are at
work on the S & M group and are satisfied with the showings.
J. E. McCauley is making good progress toward the lead on the Rero, Copper mountain. He has been faithfully
drilling away for the past two years in a
tunnel, with which he hopes to soon
strike the lead. He has given steady
employment to miners and every business in Princeton has felt the benefit of
his large expenditures. Like all legitimate enterpriscjand success the Reco and
its operator have had to endure knocks
when encouragement should have been
forthcoming.
Within the past month there has been
a trek of miners and prospectors into the
country lying between the heads of the
Roche and Skagit rivers. Some rich
free milling ore bespattered with gold
caused the stampede. The country is
known to be gold producing in placer as
well as ore and these facts produce the
regular periodic stampede. Some day in
ana around Steamboat mountain will be
a great mining camp.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Good laws will not amount to much if
the execution of them is entrusted to
enemies instead of their friends and supporters.
There are over 3000 languages in the
■world and still it is difficult to find words
sufficiently expressive of one's disgust
for the man who is so lazy that he has to
be pap-fed at the public expense. Such
is politics.
Suspicion is accountable for nine tenths
of social friction.
Women rarely confess faults ; men do
vwhen they are cornered.
Notice the obsequious affability of those
who  are  merely  time servers and place'.
