THE BOARD OF TRADE
Resolutions re Canada's Contribution to Defence
of Empire - Xi,
And One Reminding Minister of Public Works of Need of Telephone
Exchange Here
The regular meeting of the Princeton
Board of Trade was held Monday evening, President McDougall iu the chair.
After routine communications were read
from Chas. A Stoess, C. E-, regarding
blue prints for outline map of Princeton
district and enclosing account for jii,
which was ordered paid.
The President explained that the map
was intended to be placed beside the
mineral exhibit at the Seattle Exposition, serving as a guide to the location of
the minerals, the altitudes, &c, demonstrating that all roads lead to Princeton
with a downhill pull.
Communication from C. S. S'.evens,
Stevens, Superintendent of Dominion
Government telephone line, replying to
the Board's request for a telephone exchange, stating that no estimates had
been passed for it and that he would advise tbe Board on receipt of -any definite
information that will be authoritative.'
The Board deemed it wise, that in view
of the government establishing ex
changes in other places, a resolution
should be again sent to the'Minister of
Public Works, Ottawa, calling his. attention to the treatment Princeton is receiving in this matter, although the necessary
subscribers were obtained long ago and
an exchange promised. The secretar}-
of the Liberal Association was invited to
cooperate with the Board in its endeavor
to secure an exchange.
Report of Executive Committee re
shipping 430 lbs. of ore samples to the
Seattle Exposition, and of a further shipment, also bill of $4 30 on samples sent,
all received and report adopted.
The following resolution, after some
good natnred discussion likening Canada
to a grown ion in his father's house learning self reliance and cultivating a spirit'
of proper independence, aims to develop
shipbuilding and, the kindred industries
of iron mining and steel manufacture,
the raw material, including almost
smokeless coal, being found in abundance in Princeton district. The resolution was carried with only one dissentient
voice:
Resolved : The Princeton Board of
Trade respectfully urges upon the Government at Ottawa that in any considerations of defence of the British Empire
it is of highest importance that Canada
should learn self reliance to the extent
of building her own warships, equipping
and manning   them ;   and,  that in the
event of an attack on any portion ot the
Empire- Canada's contribution- to the
general defence shall consist of her navy
and such land forces as may be necessary,-all subject to Imperial command.
The distribution of 24 Stars at reduced
rate during tourist season, at prominent
points, and the insertion of a free ad. in
it pointing'to the surrounding resources,
were passed nem con.
Remarks on .the necessity for overcoming a chronic pessimism all too prevalent
in Princeton and urging every member
of the Board to constitute himself a
'booster club' of one, were approved.
Dr.. Lazier and F Pyman too* their
seats as new member? and J. Nathan was
proposed and accepted.
Board adjourned.
LOYALTY, SO-CALLED, RUN MAD.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
||tftlding, Road and Other Improvements Give Town
Busy Aspect.
Coal Wanted at Spokane, but Must
Wait on Transportation j
From Here.
Business Instinct Strong in Mai, Loyalty of Secondary Importance.
One of the chief sqeakers at the public
meeting in Vancouver, where they de
cided that Canada shonld at once give a
'Dreadnought to the Imperial Navy, was
a certain BelMrving, prominent. in the
salmon canning industry. It maybe interesting to compare this gentleman's
behavior now, aud at the^iime of the fish
ermen's strike, some year., ago.
Now, he is anxious for ships to defend
the Empire from foreigners: then, he got
Government guard boats and militia to
protect his foreign fishermen against the
British-born strike™. *Npw, he wants
Canada to pay for its defense: then, he
would not even pay for his own defence,
but shouldered the cost" off onto the farmers of Richmond municipality. Now, he
is anxious that the British Navy should
sweep the sea: then, and since then, he
has done his best to make it impossible
for the British Navy so get recruits here,
by driving white fishermen out of the
business.
'Consistency is * jewel' that Bell-Irving
does not seem able to afford — unless he
thinks that now, as then, his duty is to
shout for protection, and let some one
else pay. If imperialism has no better
champions than Bell-Irving, perhaps we
had better let it 'fade away and gradually
die.'—Com.
TO BE OB NOT TO BE ?
Baseball or no baseball thisyear? That
is the question. What is the matter
with the senior ball artists? A meeting
should be called and the club thoroughly
reorganized. In these days of prosperity,
railroad building and merry widow hats
a town without a baseball team is like a
wagon with three wheels—pretty rocky.
A ball team brings in many a dollar to
the town, therefore it behooves everv
merchant, hotel man and citizen to give
financial assistance' and encouragemeut
to the local nine, who are hard up but
easily satisfied. Call a meeting and let
every citizen turn out. Princeton has
the materiel.
Visitors to Princeton say that more
building is going on here than in the
Boundary country or in West Kootenay.
Just watch Princeton grow.
Painters are at work on the Oddfellows'
hall. When finished the^building will
present an attractive appearance.
James T. Hillis of Vancouver, who. is
interested-in placer grofcrra fin this -sk-
tion, arrived in Princeton/Sunday. At
present he is enjoying an outing fishingl
and looking over the district.
E. Waterman, while in Spokane recently, was interrogated as to the probability of Princeton coal being-delivered
in .that city for next winter's use. He
reminded the parties of the desire of his
cotnpany to supply coal to the cities, but
all would depend on the time construction and operation of the V.,V. & E.
to Princeton. A market'for this coal is
no longer a matter for conjecture when
transportation is afforded.yj
- Earth , is being removed from lot 2,
block 9, to fill in the low places in front
of Dr. Whillans' residence.
J Peck MacSwain, who is making his
second tour around the world, blew into
Princeton on the front end of a strong
wind last Saturday. Since his last appearance here he has visited many
places, including Allison. His face resembled a shredded wheat biscuit, bearing a month's growth of alfalfa. Peck is
on his way to the A. Y. P. fair at Seattle.
Mr. and ' Mrs. D. McRae of Alberta
were visitors to Princeton the latter part
of last week. Mr. McRae may invest in
this district.
H. M. Moir of Vancouver came in on
Tuesday's stage to see what a real live
town looked like'. Mr. Moir is installing
'gasoline lighting plants throughout
British Columbia.
Monday afternoon, while the wind was
blowing a terrific gale, • fire started on
D'Arcy mountain and soon the flames
spread rapidly over the hill. It is not
known how the fire originated.
Dr. Jackson, dentist, of Penticton, will
be in Princeton on May 13th.
after high water. Mr, Lambert's many'
years experience in the gold fields of this
province well qualify him for the work
of fluming andgronnd sluicing the creek.
The ground is undoubtedly rich, but its
location in a canyon makes it difficult of
access and can be worked only at a low
stage of water. With all the gold recovered from Granite Creek, big values in
platinum have been the rule and the
virgin ground now to be worked is not
•likely to be an exception. Much interest is locally manifest in this woik and
everybody hopes 'Charlie' will make a
good, big fortune, as a reward', for his
pluck and enterprise.
HILL AND BODGEBS
PLACEBING ON GBANITE.
Chas. Lambert arrived on Wednesday
from Vancouver, where he spent last winter. He begins work soon on Granite
Creek, making ready for placer mining
A Probable Cause of Delay in  Construction of V ,V. & E.
M. K. Rodgers arrived in Hedley last
week, evidently in connection with the
inventory now being made of the Nickel
?Plate mine. To him, more than any
other man, may be ascribed tbe honor of
discovering, developing and making the
Nickel Plate one of the great mines of
the world. If Mr. Rodgers had been
allowed to follow his bent while manager of the mine, and reduction works it
is not improbable that a larger reduction
plant with a smelter in full blast would
have resulted. But he was ousted from
his position bv connivance'of Daly interests and the mine and works lapsed into
a mere money making machine, its successive managers giving no thought to
expansion,, or improvement. It is well
known that Mr. Rodgers during his regime acquired the Indian reserve on certain conditions fromihe Dominion government, one of which was the erection
of a smelter on this ground adjoining
the town of Hedley. There is not a
vestige of a sign of a smelter being built.
Peoplefare asking: Why does not the
government enforce the conditions? The
member lor Yale-Cariboo is justified in
making this matter a subject of parliamentary investigation. It would.be interesting to know who are the beneficiaries of this Indian reserve deaf.
Some people surmise that Mr. Rodgers
is merely an agent for James J. HiH and
that the process of 'freezing out' and
buying out the Daly people is now being
invoked. In any case it is a fact that Mr.
Rodgers is an old friend and employee
of the 'Railroad King* and it is a fact
that Mr. Rodgers has had some, legal
unpleasantness with the Dalys involving
millions of dollars. It is said by one in
close touch with Rodgers-Hill that the
lingering policy in constructing the
V.,V. & E. is due to the game being
played for the prospective change of con -
trol of the Nickel Plate and allied interests. With Rodgers at the helm and Hill
on the bridge there would undoubtedly
be enlargement and development in.and
around camp Hedley.

DEFENCE OF THE EMPIBE.
The mushroom agitation recently
begun by the jingoes in certain
parts of Canada to imitate New
Zealand in presenting a battleship
to the Mother Country is dying as
rapidly as its forced growth gave it
a sickly life. It could not be otherwise. In the first place there is no
foundation to the scare. Because
Germany is building battleships it
does not follow that she will pounce
upon England and hold her in vassalage. Man for man the British
tar has no superior. In the last
analysis it is the man behind the
gun that decides the battle and since
the days of the Spanish armada, of
Trafalgar and other sea engagements, Britain's gunners have
shown themselves to be the best in
the world. Even if Germany had
as many ,Dr«adnaughts' as Britain
there should be no cause for alarm.
It betrays unnecessary fear and a
certain weakness to allow an agitation like the present one to take pos
session of a people, for which governments are much to blame. Rather let premiers encourage peaceful sentiment instead of fanning the
flames of war. Mr. Asquith and
his colleagues would be far more
creditably employed in effacing the
hell of misery staring them in the
face and resultant from dire poverty.
The pitiful wail of London's poor,
without home, shelter, or decent
food, calls aloud for a stop to this
mad craze for battleships costing
hundreds of millions of dollars.
Having done the honorable and
right thing with its poor and oppressed, the great Arbiter of battles
will defend that nation or government, as history has shown, from
the bloodthirsty and aggressive.
Long before Germany will attack
England she wili have to reckon
with internal troubles, her haughty
and eccentric ruler paving the way
for a more democratic form of government.
In view of the reaction which
has begun in opposition to the impetuous haste of the jingoes and
fireeaters who demanded immediate
contribution of cold cash to build
one or more 'Dreadnaughts,' it is
refreshing to observe the first article of the Star on the subject of
'Defence' substantiated by our esteemed cotemporary, the Edinburgh
Scotsman, (Unionist.) It says :
"The Empire, armed for defence,
not only at its centre but in every
extremity, and supporting its armaments by the cheerful self-sacrifice
of all its members, would gain immeasurably in power and stability ;
and this autonomous principle
would be capable of an infinite expansion, such as could mot be hoped
for under a system of contributions,
however generous." Those words
are both reasonable and logical.
Two Ministers from Ottawa will
confer with the British government
bow best to defend Canada, thus to
contribute to the defence of the
whole Empire.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
TheFernie ledger man has had
to eat 'crow' and submit to a fine of
$100 for unjustly cmrcizing and
imputing improp^^-ntotives to a
judge of the^Sounty Court. It is
true that some judges are not self
respecting and therefore do not
command that respect they otherwise would. But a certain dignity
and respect must be maintained for
the bench or there would soon be
a farce of all law. It would be a
great misfortune, however, if- newspapers were censored from any criticism, as, in the fear of exposure
lies niuch protection from judges,
who are onlyjiuman and therefore
liable to err,
£Fhe ublquilous Bill Miner re-
ntly bobbed-'up at Ottawa, right
under the very nose of the Department of Justice. Bill has not yet
made himself known in these parts,
where he spent money and happy
days, until he flew into.the arms of
the law and then flew out..

The total trade of Canada has
increased $178,600,000 since 1903.
And still some people grumble because the liberal government at
Ottawa has not caused a greater
expansion. If it had been a billion
increase they would have said two.

SUPPORT LOCAL PAPEE.
When you hear a man sneering at the
local paper because it is not as big, cheap
and newsy as the city papers, you can
safely bet that he does not squander any
of his wealth in assisting to make it better, and that generally the paper has done
more for him than he has for it. The
man who cannot see tbe benefits arising
from, a local newspaper is about as much
yalus to a- town as a delinquent tax list.

BOOST, DON'T KNOCK.
You cannot make a successful board of
trade by attending a few meetings during
the year. Work between meetings.
Talk up the country and your town.
Tell the truth. That is enough, but for
goodness sake tell it. Get your friends
to become members. Get them to talk.
Get them to write to their friends in the
east, in the old country and in the states.
In other woids do what you can for the
district.—Cranbrook Herald.
PROOF, IS IN TEYING.
The storekeeper who does not advertise and who does not systematize his
business might as well put up his shutters. Judicious advertising means financial success. Never in the history of the
commercial world has advertising occupied so dominant a place as it does today.
