Princeton coal is cleaner than wood for domestic use.
Better do than dream, better be than seem.
Development of the varied resources tributary to Princeton requires capital—Scientific investigation has proveu vast
mineral deposits—Natnre has supplied every requisite for producing the raw  material and  manufacturing it cheaply.

R COAL IS BEST
Good Satisfaction for Heating,
Cooking Steaming and
is Clean.
Lull of Summer Demand Causes Reduction in Output—Town
Electric Light.
The Vermilion Forks Co. recently
reduced the working staff at their coal
mine and now employ miners euougb to
meet the requirements of the district market. This temporary cessation is inevitable in new mines until an established
market is obtained. During the lull of
summer coal consumption it is expected
some improvements will be made which
will facilitate shipping both in speed and
general economy. A boxcar loader is
a necessary part of the equipment of
coal mining and this is to be installed by
the V.F.M. Co. An uptodate screening
plant, including a sorting table, is also
to Be erected. For the operation of the
mine the motive power, steam or electricity, has not yet been permanently
decided upon.
Wherever Princeton coal has been given
a fair trial it has met witb pronounced
favor for domestic- use and as a steam
fuel the Republic Mining Co., Wash.,
Bruce White, manager, finds it to be a
superior article. Considering the difficulties of introducing a ney, ..coal, the
opposition it must encounterfrom the
dealers in other coals, and minor causes,
there is every reason for satisfaction.
The ready and large demand for this coal
when it first began to be shipped last
winter augurs well for it when the season
for receiving orders comes around again.
Experts who have visited the mine say
that there is every reason to believe that
it will be a great shipper.
The Vermilion Forks Co. have under
advisement the installation of a large
"^trifi ^fthtins; plant with which to
supply the town. Electrician R. Naylor
has already put in an electric service at
the mine, which with additions and extensions may easily fill all the requirements of the townspeople.
FIRE AT ASHNOLA.
The house occapiedJjy_Angus Lamont
and wife at Ashnolawas destroyed by
fireTasfweek, consumingthS contents
and two dogs before the work of saving
the property could be accomplished.
Wm. McLean and J McKay did all in
their power to stay the flames and succeeded in saving the farm implements.
A stack of good hay was destroyed and
also a storehouse. The fire originated
from a defective stovepipe and in twenty
minutes the whole was iu ashes.   As Mr.
Lamont is on a visit east it is not possible
to tell the exact value of the loss, it being
estimated at about $1000. The house is
part of the Lamont estate purchased by
President HilU of the Great_Northeni
Railway Co.   No insurance.

Sterling   Old   Timers Meet  Highly
y Respected Sheriff of Cariboo.
Shejffi Stevenson of Barkerville, Cari-
boo district, was a visitor to his brother,
'Col.' Robert, for a few days recently
and expressed much pleasure on seeing
Princeton for the first time. With a long
mining experience in Cariboo he readily
foresaw the great possibilities of Princeton and district and was shown by his
brother the piocess of development of
what is believed to be a great copper;
mine, owned by R. Stevenson and Spokane associates,    rfafot-r
It is x a.6 years since Sheriff John Stevenson went to Cariboo in the great trek
for gold that included the flower of the
sturdy manhood of many countries. He
has not forgotten his first love, old Cariboo, and is still loyal to it, being fully!
persuaded that a great wealth of gold is
yet to be taken from its treasure vaults.
Both John and Robert mined in Cariboo
and made good. Both endowed with
iron constitutions and perfect physique
they withstood the rigors and hardships
of mining life, and now at three score
and ten are enjoying excellent health.
But they have witnessed a long procession of departed tillicums over the Great
Divide, among whom were the renowned
'Cariboo' Cameron of Cornwall, Out.,
Ror^ext Shepherd. Brockville. Ont.. Robert Hollo way, editor and miner. In the
Uarkerville hospital now lies at death's
door, Geo. Cowan, aged 80, of Brockville, Ont., a former member of the provincial legislature and very able man in
his prime. Messrs. Stevenson are natives
of Vanklrek Hillf near Ottawa.
With the brothers Stevenson in Cariboo were Angus Lamont, Hug^h Campbell
andSamuel Pearce, residing near Princetou. Some day IHe history of Cariboo
will be written, then many names will
adorn its page who are now spending the
evening of their lives in comparative
obscurity. May they all be spared many
years of useful and happy life.
The unusual extreme heat and dry
spell for this time of the year have been
the primary causes for serious damage
both by fire and water in Princeton district. From Princeton to Granite Creek
the country has been burned over and
much damage done, the extent of which
can only be ascertained by actual investigation. Provincial Fire Warden Atherton has been notified of the dangerous
conditions by his deputy, Sam Spencer,
who is taking every precaution to have
the danger averted. Firefighters are
now at work but the devouring element
is so widespread that nothing short of a
drenching rain can effectively cope with
it. Toward Copper mountain volumes
of smoke have been arising tor the past
two days, destroying timber and whatever
else may be in its path. The prevalent
westerly high wind has increased the
danger, for the travelling fire leaps from
tree to tiee and scurries along the ground
making fuel of the very inflammable
tinder wood and last year's decaying
long grass. Hope is strong, and the
lowering clouds to the west indicate, that
raiii is probable within the next few
hours from this writing.
The close season for setting fires to
clear ground, in terms of the Bush Fires
Act, does not begin until May, after
which a heavy penalty is provided for
filing without a permit. The responsibility for damages by fire, however, is
not lessened by the fact that the close
season is not on. Who is responsible for
these fires and consequent damages is a
subject for investigation and as the matter is, in a measure, sub judice, no good
.purpose will be served by attributing it
to any one or company through the press.
During recent years a great waste of the
forest wealth of Princeton district has
been going on and it is certainly time it
was stopped.
It was fully expected that very high
water would result from the rapidly
rising temperature prevailing the past
few days. Rivers and creeks have risen
to the full height of their banks, pouring
their muddy waters in torrential haste
ocaanwards. Driftwood and sawlogs
make a very interesting, yet doleful, pro
cession down the rivers, the latter having been cut last winter and placed on
the banks for the Similkameen Lumber
Co. This high water is a month in ad
vance of other years.

UNIVERSAL FREE TRADE
AND PEACE.
The universal free trade doctrine,
now a speck in the political sky no
larger than a man's hand, is bound
to become a live issue in and between the nations of the earth.
With the growth of international
complications and the multiplication
of peace agencies, it seems singular
.that no organized effort has been
made, so far as Star is aware, to
attack the source of quite all the
War talk and armaments that spell
financial ruin — high protective
tariffs are at the bottom of-all the
unrest, agitation and friction. II
one nation is favored, however
slight, by another in its tariff
treaty, then all the others are offended and the air becomes surcharged with dreadnought talk and
war scares without end. Remove
high protective tariffs and the enormous expenditures for navies will
cease. . ^ji
; The essence of free trade lies in
giving the subject liberty to buy in
the cheapest market. Protection
limits the purchasing area and prescribes certain conditions under
which the subject shall trade. Simply stated free trade promotes and
encourages friendly relations between nations, whereas, protection
hy its cold reserve and restrictions
hinders friendship and inculcates
a spirit of envy and jealousy. Under universal free trade a natural
and spontaneous friendship would
spring up as the result of honorable, free and unrestricted trade
relations between nations. Protection discourages that free intercourse which begets confidence ;
.subjugates friendship to narrowing
political principles and makes of it
■a question of diplomacy or expediency. To the philosophic mind
there can be no doubt as to the
superiority of free trade over protection, in fact it is so generally admitted that it is a wonder so little
has been done to have it established
throughout the world.
As England is the home of free
trade and as she has always been in
the lead of all other nations in
christianizing and colonizing the
world, it would be a retrograde step
in the welfare of the human family
to now recede from her glorious
position and adopt the selfish principles involved in protection. If
peace is ever to come to this world
it will not be helped along by high
protective duties.    As  the greatest
civilizing force  of recent centuries
Britain has a  proud  career to look
back upon.    What could still more
add to that high and noble prestige
than her contribution to the world's
peace along the lines of free trade ?
Are there  not  statesmen- of sufficient breadth of view and  lofty purpose to advocate a cause which will
disarm  tbe nations  and - stop   the
mad  thirst   for  war ?     Since  the
solution  of universal   peace  hangs
so heavily on the  adoption of ••uni-
versal  free  trade would it not be a
wise  move  on  the part of governments  to inaugurate  some  movement tending toward international
concert in the matter ?  From social,
political and industrial standpoints,
as well  as  the world's  peace,.lt is
worthy  of   the   best   efforts of all
who aim at the general good.    To
this end Star would invite  newspapers throughout tbe world to bring
the question of universal free trade
prominently before their readers.

LANDS THAT ARE IDLE, YET
PRODUCTIVE.
It has become a system with some
land owning companies to clear the
land and put it in condition ready
for the homeseeker and settler.
The C.P.R. is doing this in the
Northwest, with the difference that
irrigation instead of clearing: is
necessary. In the Similkameen
there are many thousands of acres
which require both irrigation and
clearing, the initial, cost of which
is too much for the ordinary settler.
If some railway company, say the
Great Northern, would acquire the
large acreage now lying idle in this
district and make it into ready
made farms, with the purchase price
low and spread over a number of
years, it would be good business
both for the railroad company and
the country. The large number
of acres held idle under coal lease
in Princeton district is detrimental
to progress. No blame can be attached to the lessees of coal land,
that rests upon former governments
at Victoria. It may be possible for
Premier McBride to remove the
hindrance to settling and cultivating these lands. In any case the
land is idle and that constitutes a
first class cause for a kick. The
cry of the Similkameen is for people and-;capital and nothing should
be left undone to induce both to
come.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
In the agitation begun by Star
for universal free trade it is understood that political partyism will
have no part nor share in it. The
question is of such transcendent
importance to the human race that
political partizanship must be lost
to view in its very insignificance
and impotency.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE. '
He who gains most money or notoriety
may be an utter failure as a man.
The hedgehog is slow moving and lives
a lonely life—human hedgehogs do not
contribute to progress they simply knock
and knock without stopping the onward
march of the go-aheads.
Even the barbarians are improving—
they talk of horsewhipping anybody that
won't do as they do.
Let sunshine into all your ways, works
and words.
The person with a reputation for lying
can  never   hope  to  have any influence
for good upon others.
. Many a mau'slife  is insured for many:
times its real value.
The critics of newspapers are like the
crickets—they make a creaking sound
and that is all it amounts to.
Live and let live, even if you can't
command anj more attention than a hole
in. a doughnut.

1 MORAL,
A ducjsf'which stuck faithfully to business during the summer and laid several
dozens of large, fawn colored eggs, complained that she wasn't appreciated.
'See that hen over there,' she said. 'She
hasn't laid as many eggs as I have, nor as
big, but she has books written about her
and verses composed in ner honor, while
nobody is saying a word about me.'
The trouble with you is,' said the wise
old rooster that was standing near, 'that
you don,t tell the public what you have
done. You lay an egg and wadd'e off
without saying a word, but that sister of
mine never lays an egg without letting
everyone in the neighborhood know all
about it. If you want to cut any ice in
his community you must learn to advec-
ae.'
