Vaccination   to   be   Practised
with Great Discretion
and Care.
No Immediate Danger from Smallpox
so Conscience Clause can he
Freely Invoked.
Editor Star—Sir : Vaccination prevents smallpox. When Dr. Jenner invented the operation, the medical men
were very strongly ' from Missouri,' and
the usefulness of the process had to be
very thoroughly proven before they wou!d
have anything to do with it. It was vaccination that first checked the ravages of
smallpox, though there can-be no doubt
that increased cleanliness,'both personal
and public, isolation hospitals and disin-
iection have limited the disease so that
now vaccination is seldom necessary.
The government has a right to force
people to get vaccinated, to stop the
spread of an epidemic, just as it has the
right to blow up houses to stop the spread
of a fire. In both cases of course the
remedy should be applied with discretion, or the cure might be worse than the
disease.
If anyone is to be vaccinated, it should
be the school childreu. They come frcm
ml sorts of homes, sit together for hours
in schools not always well ventilated,
and wipe their hands on the same towel,
so that if there is any disease among
them it gets a fine chance to spread.
But where is the epidemic ?   There is

G. W. Fish, manager for A. E. Hovise

the past few days seriously indisposed.
Many kindly inquiries from friends bt-

Jack Thynne and Billy Wilson killed
a she bear and three cubs last week irr
which both gentleman had good sport
with a dash of danger thrown in. The
old bear wanted to hug Mr. Wilson and
was about to put her hairy arms around
in a last fond squeeze when Mr. Thynne,
who is a deadshot, appeared on a hill
about 600 yards away. He aimed, she
fell, broken heart, Billy rose, life spared,
friends shake, cigars around. Bears beware, Jack Thynne.
Tihk French has leased the pool and
billiard parlor from Meesrs. Thomas and

COAL DEAL HUNG UP
Bondholders Will  not   Relax
on Terms of Coal at
North Fork.
Too Bad, Coking Coal, as It is, Should
Remain in Disuse when it is
in Demand.
It is reported on good authority that
the deal pending between the Erl Syndicate and the owners of the North Fork
of Granite coal field has been declared
off. It aopears that Mr. Bonthrone, managing-engineer for the syndicate, wanted
ah extension of time on the bond for the
purpose of driving a 700 foot tunnel on
the Granite Creek side of the field and
thus determine the coal area more definitely. It appears that the bondholders
declined the engineer's reasonable propo
sition, leaving him and the public to
guess the reasons for refusal. Deductions
in cases of this kind are not always safe
and reliable, but two reasons offer some
light: Either the 700 feet of development
was feared, lest it would not "develop,"
or there is a "nigger In the fence" in
the shape of a big railway corporation.
It would be an unfortunate thing for the
Sirnilkameen it the North Folk coal,
which is believed to be of good coking
quality, should, through the intrigue of
a railway octopus, be allowed to remain
where it now is, underground. Coking
coal in tbe heart of a district that contains an unlimited supply of smelting
ores is an advantage not found in any
other part of the world, yet th~se are
the actual mineral conditions here.
PUBLIC TELEPHONE AT LAST.
At last—fruit of the agitation begun
some months ago tor a public telephone
was observed by the placing of-a phone
in the store of A. Bell, agent, last Saturday
by Dominion government emplovees sent
from Hedley, thus ending a senseless delay. A public telephone should have been
given Princeton long ago. It would
have saved a lot of inconvenience to
those having uigent business to transact.
The shabby, ungentlemanly treatment of
the board of trade by D. Ross, M.P., in
ignoring its recommendation of an agent
after the board had been requested to
make one and the acceptance of the
agency by the president of the board
who lovingly endorsed the board's appointee, are matters now in the limelight
of conversation and disapproval.

FIRES ARE ALL OUT
Flames   Spread  Over   Large
Area of Country, but
Little Damage.
Best Timhered Sections Escaped and
Welcome Rainfall Averted
Further Damage.
A combination of circumstances last
week averted what might have been a
cklainity. The drouth and a scorching
sun had made everything on the ground
as inflammable as it could well be. It
only required a tiny spark or even the
focussed rays of the sun to start a blaze.
From the Fraser river along Hope mountain summit eastward to the Tulameen
River and Bear Creek the whole country
was reported to be a sea of flame. Im
mense volumes of smoke rolled skyward
until the canopy of heaven was draped
in deepest mourning. Flames leaped
from peak to peak and towering crags
put on their brightest array while a million torches flitted here and there on the
nightly breeze which sels in from the
westward sea. Terraces of flame on the
sides of mountains were not unlike the
lighted stories of a metropolitan skyscraper and in the blackness of night one
could almost discern the disrobing forms
of tired beings seeking sleep behind the
panes. As a spectacular scene, incomparable, awesome, bewitchingly weird!
But the rain came and with it lowering nightclouds. The annual harvest
of garnering flame was over and the
fire wardens and fire fighters who made
a valiant stand against the enemy left
the scenes for their happy homes.
MAN COURTS TROUBLE.
" Summerland Review " is the title or
name of a newspaper recently started at
Summerland, in the flourishing Okanagan district. It is a credit to the Review
Company and to the manager, especially,
J. F. Watkins. The man behind the pen
is eyidently no 'prentice hand, its leaders being choice in diction, subject and
literary tasce. It advocates clean politics,
with a Conservative bias, if one can read
beneath the surface. It aims to secure a
high moral standard among members of
parliament and will, independently, hew
to the line, let the chips fall where they
may. Bravo ! Bro. Watkins. Would to
heaven there were more quilldrivers like
you. The Review is an inviting,-clean
looking newspaper, deserving of a large
patronage.
W. J. Garrison, agent for Frederick A.
Kribs, timder dealer, is in town on business for his principal. Mr. Garrison's
headquarters are at Portland, Ore.
MISTAKES DO OCCUR
C.P.R. Survey Buy Some Sup
plies in Town But
Not All.
Hope Entertained that all Trade Possible will be Given Princeton
these Days.
It appears that the Star was mfsin-
formed regarding the purchase of snpr
lies from Princeton storekeepers by the
C P.R. The railway people are now pu:«
chasing from local stores, 10 what extent;
of the total required for the camp, has
not been ascertained. The Star gladly
makes this modified and corrected statement, compared with that of last week,,
and hopes that its mistaken remarks will
not cause either temporary or permanent
depression of stock on London 'Change •
or Amsterdam 'dam.' With these few
remarks, (apologetic), the apocryphal
statement alluded to is withdrawn and
the threatened knock out blow to the
C.P.R. is rescinded. Sir Tom and the-
King of the Jimhillkameen Valley are
old tillicums of ours and the Star has no-
desire to hurt either of them. Send in a
few more big, heavy orders to the stores,
if you please, Tom, and Jim, you old.
procrastinator, can't you hurry along
a "Snorting Billy," so that .the children
can have a ride on him about Xmas.
Now, its up to you fellows. If you don't-
do what's right the Star will give you
another side-wollaper on the 'bread
basket.'
PIONEERS FADING AWAY.
One of the old pioneers of B.C., recently passed away at Armstrong in the
person of Mr. Schubert, father of J. A.
Schubert, the popular merchant of Hedley. The elder Mr. Schubert crossed the
plains with a company of goldhunters
coming to the Fraser diggings in the
50's. J. A. was then a baby in-arms and
showed some of the 'wire' that has been,
of good service to' the man in later life.
Indians harrassed the expedition aud'it
was not without many an encounter and
adventure that the decimated band, including mothers and children, arrived
down the Fraser from Tete Jeaune Cache.
Mr. Schubert settled in the Spallum-
cheen district where Armstrong now is.
He died at the ripe old age of 92, highly
respected and esteemed by all who knew
him.

Tuesday, September 7 and 8 will be the

end of the valley.

SIMILKAMEEN DISTRICT.
[Continued from last week.]
In, under and in the vicinity of
Princeton lies the coal that has
attracted the attention of consumers at all points within 300 miles
east, west and south. Nothing but
railroad transportation will ever set
in motion the machinery necessary
for mining the vast coal measures
in the Princeton basin. The quality
of the Coal, sub-bituminous; gives
it an adaptability for general use
superior to those coals which contain peculiar properties and which
therefore, are specially suited,for
a particular purpose.
Geologists and mining experts
are of opinion that coal will be
found at great depth, under the
hills^spf eruptive formation, which
will be either anthracite or coking.
Be that as it' may, the surface coal
now being mined for local consumption, has all the heating properties
of a first class article and among
soft coals cannot be excelled:.for
domestic purposes. vIt has been
thoroughly tested under local boilers, giving continuous and ample
proof of excellent steam generating
qualities. It has the further recommendations of being easily and
cheaply mined.
A gentleman who is recognized
as an authority on coal fields and
their development has given his
matured opinion on the possibilities of the coal industry in Prince-
tori district. He assumes that there
is coking coal, which, in the light
of tests made with the North Fork
of Granite Creek article, is a well
founded and reasonable assumption.-  ,
He says : " With coking bituminous coal, you will be able to control the smelting trade of the Boundary district and the coast, as no
coke of first rate quality is produced west of Fernie. The distance to the coast would not be
sufficient to.-prevent Princeton coe 1
from competing successfully with
that of Vancouver Island, which is
both costly and difficult to mine.
The distance from Princeton to
Grand Forks being 150 miles the
railway rate per ton should not exceed $1.50 as against $2.75 from
Fernie. If Princeton coal were
sold at the same price as the Crow's
Nest, viz., $2, f.o.b. at works, it
could deliver it in the Boundary
country - at $3.50, a figure with
which they could not possibly compete."
It is evident, therefore, that the
location of the Princeton coal basin
commands an almost undisputed
market when the question of distances, ' quality, price and cost of
mining are considered. As Fernie
became a town of 5000 people in a
few years after the discovery and
development of its coal mines so the
reasonable anticipation may be entertained that Princeton will do
even better. With a coal market
assured, the production and reduction of metalliferous ores in and
near the " city " of Princeton, the
industries following the development of timber and agricultnral
resources, no one but a dyspeptic
croaker could fail to see progress,
expansion and a large population
within fthe next few years.
But the destiny of a town or
district largely rests with the people residing there. The residents
of Princeton and-the whole Similkameen- district must keep pace
with the standard of progress as
fixed by that of other places in the
province. Once become laggards-
in tbe procession there will be found
an ever ready spirit and action in
men to crowd us out altogether.
Millions of investors and mining
men in the old country and all over
this continent do not know there is
a Similkameeu or a Princeton. To
make them acquainted with it re
quires special advertising. The
newspaper, at best, can only herald
the name and pave the way for a
permanent acquaintanceship. Of
course, no town is considered alive
these days without a newspaper.
But the pamphlet, booklet or folder
accompanied with maps and copious
illustrations is conceded by professional advertising agencies as the
Only means of impressing probable
investors. A book or pamphlet is
something to be referred to and
preserved, while a newspaper is destructible and its matter ephemeral
iu character.
Loyalty to town or district is one
of the first obligations of its residents. Without hearty co-operation and united effort very little can
be accomplished. Home institutions and business concerns should
be patronized aud fair treatment
accorded all around. At a little
town at the coast it transpired at a
public meeting to consider the diversion of trade to outside points,
that a number who protested loudly
against the patronage of departmental stores were themselves in
the habit of sending an order to
them "occasionally." They got
their watch repairing, boot making and printing done at the departmental house although these businesses were represented in the town,
and the offending ones, forsooth,
kept stores. When the high priests
of the "trade-at-home" doctrine are
guilty what can they expect of the
layman customer.

no smallpox here. It could only get
here from Hope, Nicola or Keremeos,
and there is none at any of those places.
There are railway construction camjs
down the valley. These might become
sources of danger, but .-if the provincial
health authorities pay any attention to
their business, ther° will be no danger of
smallpox getting into this part of the
province at all
Vaccination is not a healthy thing in
itself. No one supposes that it adds any
strength to the body. It merely concentrates the strength already in the body 'o
resist one particular disease, and so must
lessen the resistance to other diseases.
It does not strike me as good practise to
weaken most, of our health fortifications
in order to pnt extra g tards at a point
very unlikely to be attacked, so I think
that if I had a child at school I would
take advantage of the "conscientious objection" clause and send the teacher a
note like this: "Sir, I do not want my
child to be vaccinated as there is no
smallpox anywhere near here, and I
think it is wrong to make the children
suffer when there is no danger."

The five-year-old daughter of a Brooklyn man has had such a large experience
with dolls that she feels herself to be
something of a connoisseur in children.
Recently there came a real live baby
into the house.
When ii was put into her arms the five-
year-old surveyed it with a critical eye.
"Isn' it a nice baby?" asked the
nurse.
"Yes, it's nice," answered the youngster, hesitatingly. "It's nice, but it's
head's loose."

Book on Copper* ii
The miner needs the book.for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copber mines
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper'consumer needs the book
for every chapter it^contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor iu copper shares cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on. one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE: $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can 3Ton afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you?

MINES AND MINING.
Gvpsum deposits near Spatsum on 1_,i
C.P.R., will be developed by J. Claverie
and associates.
The payroll of the P.C. Copper Co. fori
the last month was $45,000, and for the;
Dominion Copper Co. $20,000. When 1
Princeton has payrolls as large there will I
be fortunes in real estate.
The  last   payroll   of the   Crow's Nest j
Pass Coal   Co. was $191,000.    Coalmines
at Princeton are idle for want of railway.
The  Granbv  mines can deliver to the
smelter 5000 tons of ore every 24 hours.
