Princeton coal is the best; ussd once, used always.
LKAMEEN
No man can be great unless truthful.
m
Opportunity shakes every man by the hand and bids him welcome to the bounties of nature in Princeton district—Undoubtedly the
time is fast approaching; when development will prove all that has been said in favor of this country—Now, is investing time.

MINES AND MINING
Whipsaw Makes Good with
^Development;  Rich
Ore Samples.
Opportunity for Lime and Brick Man'
ufacture—Copper Market is
Growing Strong.
Free milling ore assaying $150 per ton
in gold has been struck at Steamboat
Mountain, about 15 lniles^buth of Hopi.
The excitement over the firsj/discovery
has abated. It is tj_e gep_ral opinion
that further discoveries will be made and
other stampedes/take jflace, as the country has only/been/_ikitnmed over and
prospecting Is diffi-ult. .
Although there is plenty of excellent
limestone around Princeton no one seems
to grasp the opportunity thus presented
for the manufacture of lime. There is
always a steady demand for both lime
and brick and they should be produced
at home.
Summing up evidential facts as known
and taking into consideration the amount
of work that has been done there is every
reason to believe that Whipsaw is a permanent camp. The. mineralized area of
high grade ore has been defined and explored by experienced men, whose opinions tend to establish the existence of
mines, though still in the formative stages
yet none the less real and valuable. A
large amount of work has been done this
year in Whipsaw by Messrs. Baker, Crowley, Fitzgerald, Spencer, Knight & Day,
Fearless, McMullen and French, all of
whom are highly satisfied with results.
Sam Spencer has done a large amount of
work in crosscuts and tunnelling and has
some very fine samples 01 silver-lead ore
taken from the lead. He has zinc ore
which, under the new process of treatment must prove very valuable, also lead
and zinc carbonates easily mined and
virtually ready for shipment. With a
wagon road into Whipsaw ore shipping
could at once begin.
The copper metal market is gradually
improving. Curtailment of output is
having its good effect and in this way
consumption will soon be able to clean
up all the present copper supplies and
put the metal market in an extremely
strong position.
A. G. Freuch, a well known consulting
metallurgical chemist is in Nelson for
the purpose of experimenting with the
refractory silver-lead-zinc ores found in
the Kootenay. He is very hopeful of
discovering a profitable treatment for the
low grade ores, having already experimented with those of Slocan.
W. Yolen Williams is in Rossland in
the interests of the Granby Co. conduct
ing an examination of the Cliff mine,
With the stoping of ote still going on at
the old LeRoi, the Consolidated Co.
working four mines of its local group,
thejosie, LeRoi No. 2, Velvet, Nickel-
plate and I.X.L., Rossland is an active
camp
A NEW MAGAZINE.
Star is in receipt of the August number of -The Athletic World,' published
bv W. J. Taylor, Limited, Woodstock,
Ont., a publication that is in every way
creditable to those in charge. It super
cedes the old 'Outdoor Canada' magazine. Besides ■ the change of title the
size has been increased and the contents
augmented. The 'Athletic World' is
among ,the best publications issued in
Canada. The sporting editor of Star,
though a little sti F and rusty on athletii s
will always welcome 'The Athletic World*
to his sanctum as a reminder of bygone
days and to be up-to-date in the world of
athletic achievement. Every yonng man
should have a copy of it.
CLOSE SEASON ON BEAR.
A close season for bea. exists now in
B.C. from mid July to September and
already several convictions have been
secured. While bruin is not as destructive as the coyote or as dangerous to human life as the cougar, yet he can hardly
be considered safe, useful or ornamental.
Excepting cubs bear meat is scarcely
an edible food and the skin, uulike that
of deer, is not valuable for wearing material. There is such a thing as making
protection too protective for savage animals, whose home should be beyond the
pale of civilization. All things considered there is no doubt that the close season on bear is at least premature.
Jr PARVUM PARVA DESENT.
The Star is threatened with libel. In
these guileless columns a week or so
ago an item appeared in which allusion
was made to a respected citizen of Princeton engaging in a friendly game with
an esteemed citizen of Merritt. The
complainant claims heavy damages. His
reputation suffered insomuch and insofar
so he says, that it indefinitely delayed
his debut injja-high—society. He concludes as follows: 'Have placed the matter in the hands of my legal advisers to
adjust. The piece appeared just as I was
going to but into Merritt's finest society,
and it is the blow that 'killed fayther.'
'I have the honor, to be, unkind sir,
his
Mr.   $   MacSwain,
mark'
[How sensitive some people seem ?
Still, let justice be done to the great as
well as to the small.—Ed.]
W. G. Norrie and bride of Granite
Creek, passed through town last week
from Rossland, where he was married-
Star extends hearty congratulations.
HEDLEY LABOR DAY
Princeton   Scoops   Important
Prizes, Winning most
Coveted Ones.
Big Contingents from All Over Valley
—Hedleyites in Front Rank
of Entertainers.
Labor Day was royally celebrated at
Hedley, the weather, the crowd, the program, all combining to make the occ_»-
sion memorable and enjoyable. As Star
goes to press Tuesday it was not possible
to get complete results.
The chief event, baseball match, was
won by Princeton, 4 to 3. Prize JS100 in
cash.
In the shooting contest Princeton won
with 70 points, Hedley, 56. The Shatford cup still remains with Princeton.
Bert Irwin won in individual shooting,
scoring 24 out of possible 25 points.
Mrs. M. Ewart won ladies' race with
Starlight. Seas won the freeforall with
Baldy, formerly owned by W. Garrison.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Gordon and Mrs. Murdock, Marie and
Royal, and Miss Norah Lyall returned
Monday night from Hope where they
had been outing and where they met
Mrs. Mnrdock returning from a pleasant
visit to the coast. Ripe strawberries were
picked on the summit.
W. C. Brown, for nearly two years
teller in the Bank: of Commerce, left on
Saturday last for Kamloops. From a
social point of view it is unfortunate that
bank regulations could uot have spared
Mr. Brown another two years to Princeton, where he was justly popular. Always obliging, courteous and competent,
he carries away the best wishes of many
friends. An informal dance party was
arranged for him, at which he was tendered gold locket and cufflinks.
F. C. Laird, of Spokane, is in town on
a business visit.
Mrs. W. S. Garrison arrived home yesterday from a visit to Seattle.
Bailey-Scott—In -St. James' church
Vancoujre t, on the 1st irfet., Frank Bailey
to Mis^Hllda R. W. ScpttT^The honey
moon will be spen,ff_ England. Star
wishes the happy* couple joy and prosperity throughout-Hfe's journey.
The term 'goldbug' is a fictitious one
applied to men of wealth, but the real
thing, a proper gold bug with yello__
belly and gold feet was seen on Sam
Spencer's house recently. Just emerging from the chrysalis state a dozen or
more of these interesting bugs clung to
the wall, as independent and comfortable
as any human goldbug could be. In the
absence of an assay our bugologist thinks
their chief value will consist in dissection by some naturalist like Seton Thomson who could write a book about them.
Andy Rankin, who has been medical
attendant for Dr. McEwen on railwav
construction, was given a royal sendoT
last Friday night, a dance and presentation of a gold charm, intimating th.
esteem in which he is held here by _
large number of friends. He goes to-
Merritt to engage in the drug business.
MODERN WOODMEN CAMP.
Princeton may justly lay claim to being'
a home for secret societies. Besidesf-
Orangemeri, Freemasons, Oddfellows and.
Rebekahs another order is seeking admission into the social and fratern.il
arena. The Modern Woodmen of America, with over 1,000,000 members, will
organize here, Walter ' Davis, assistant
deputy, having been authorized to receive applications and supply literature
to all desiring It. The, initiation fee is
$5 and not less than fifteen members can
institute a lodge. The Order furnishes
sound life insurance at cost. Mr. Davis"
resides on Kenley Av. and will gladly
respond to inquiries.
TEN TEARS AGO.
[From Similkameen Star of 1900.]'
Frank Bailey, owner of the townsite. at
Similkameen City,t was in town this week
as enthusiastic as ever over the prospects
of that camp.
Judge Spinks held the first sitting of
the county court on Monday last.
George McCoskery" disposed of 50 feet
of his block on Bridge St. for the sum of
$10 per foot frontage, H. Cowan purchasing 25 feet and Rennie & Bell 25 feet.
Robert Stevenson ari_ son arrived in
town from Summit camp on Wednesday.
The ore in this camp .rlins $200 per ton
in gold and silver.
W. J. Waterman returned from Victoria and reports favorably for the delegation to secure money appropriations
for the town and district.
Messrs. A. Hickling, E. Waterman and
'Judge' Macintosh will meet the government and ask for the early completion
of the Princeton-Keremeos wagon roa ..
Mrs.  J. Anderson  left for Victoria via '
the Hope trail on Wednesday last.
'Sunset' Brown returned from Grand
Fotks Wednesday.
A. E. Howse arrived from Nicola on
Saturday's stage and reports all well in
the valley.
The latest fad in Princeton is hunting
duck by moonlight.
The construction of a line of railway
between Vancouver, the Similkameen
and Kootenay is a project that should
appeal to every loyal British Columbian.

TAXING IMPROVEMENTS.
That the principle of single tax
is being applied more and more in
•cities and municipalities generally
is cause for gratification to all who
hold to the justice of such a mode
of  taxation.     In   Vancouver  the
abolition of the tax on improvements has, no doubt, given great
impetus-to building.    Manifestly it
would be unfair to attribute all tbe
building activity there to single tax
but it must be considered as a factor
with its due proportion of incentive
to that end.   Single tax  not only
encourages   construction  of buildings but it tends to a better class of
structure.     As   for the theory of
single tax in all its bearings Star is
not prepared   to  endorse  them in
entirety, the changes advocated by
its promulgators being not only revolutionary but reactionary in many
respects.    Since,   however,   it  is a
fundamental principle of single tax
to remove the iniquitous system in
old and crowded countries whereby
a few of the so-called 'nobilit}-' monopolize  ownership in   the   land,
there  could  be  no reasonable objection to  it.    Land  for the people
and people  for the land, not land
for a few titled or non-titled landlords, has been handed down from
remote history.    When  Princeton
is incorporated a clause in its charter removing all  hampering taxes
on improvements will be in line with
the best thought and action of a
progressive and intelligent community.   Is it too much to expect that
provincial and federal governments
will adopt the progressive and economic principle that all improvements should be free from any discouragement or burden in the form
of tax?
THE BIBLE.
The debate in the Methodist conference at Victoria on Higher Criticism shows the wide disparity of
opinion and belief held by ministers and laymen of the same denomination. One of the brethren
is accused of heterodoxy and his
teaching denounced, on his side
being ranged some of the great and
learned of the church. Orthodox
religionists have received many a
jolt in recent times from the higher
critics and modernists. It all goes
to prove that with nearly two thousand years of study and research
the Bible still is the subject ofmuch
controversy, unfathomed and misunderstood by even ministers, pro
fessors and D.D's. All of which
does not in the least change or affect
the great truths of this wonderful
book—truths as well understood
and grasped by the mind of the
humble fisherman as by that of a
learned Paul. The Bible deals
witb and is founded upon infinity,
the eternal future of man. And
as God is a spirit, authority tor
the Book, creator of man in His
own image aud likeness, therefore
His word can only be understood,
appreciated and assimilated by the
spiritually minded—the carnal mind
cannot understand Him. The carnal minds of the Methodist chnrch
and of the world generally will find
reason wherewith to accuse one another, to doubt, fear, wrangle, accept portions of scripture and reject
other such. The spiritual man accepts the Bible wholly, thus excluding all dispute, but the dustman
made out of the dust, is always
ready for an argument. Scientific
study and practice of the scriptures
is the only way, since it proves
them with signs following : in the
purer life, in the healing of disease,
the sure hope of eternal life and in
love toward all.

notes AND COMMENTS.
A great deal has been said and
written about patronizing home
storekeepers instead of sending to
the outside departmental store. As
a matter of loyalty to the town and
desire to see it progress every dollar spent in living requisites and
maintenance should have its ulti
mate,, if not present, goal in the
town where it issues from. Living
and earning in one town and building up another is not loyalty, it is
not good business. Of course the
fault does not altogether lie with
the customer. Storekeepers do not
always patronize home institutions.
In the matter of encouraging the
home newspaper little is done in
advertising and printed stationery
is purchased elsewhere. In return
for the newspaper's refusal to print
advertisements for departmental
stores it receives nothing from local
stores—rather one-sided loyalty.
And here let it be remarked that
all advertisements, having their
originating cause in this section,
should be advertised here, be they
coal, land or county court notices.
The newspaper is here to serve just
purposes.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
. ■" Anyone  who habitually   deuies  facts
■will soon be unable to state one.
■   Religious teaching and healing the sick
should go  hand in  hand as in the days
of Christ—it is the scriptural way.
The measure of a gift is in proportion
to the all we possess.
Prosperity tries character more than
■adversity—it is safer steering against the
tide than with it.
Trouble never weakens you save when
you flee from it—face it boldly and firmly
and it will do you good—providing >ou
did not hunt for it.
He who gives promptly and quickly
gives twice,   he  who   hesitates to give;
is miserly. [
Before you accuse another examine
yourself and see if you are not somewhat
of a hypocrite.
