OUR COAL TRADUCED
Unjust Comment in Local Paper re Qualities of Our
Excellent Fuel.
Princeton Coal gives Satisfaction on
Locomotives and Superior for
Domestic Purposes
*
The Keremeos Chronicle, usually accurate and well informed, quotes the
remarks of F. C, Laird, of Spokane ie-
garding Princeton coal as follows : 'Of
tbe Princeton coal Mr. Laird says it is a
good, clean breaking and clean burning
coal, but assays high in ash. He thinks
it will need to be put into Spokane at a
lower price than the coal now used there
in order to secure a market.' When in
Princeton Mr. Laird consulted the fyle of
the Star of Feb. 14, 1904. He saw three
published assays of the coal running 3.90,
5.70 and 7.00 in ash. Those figures will
stand comparison with the best coal delivered inSpokane, But it is in thermal
units or fixed carbon that the excellence
of coal is tested. Princefco"n coal assays
from 54.07 to 74.58 in fixed carbon. If
the Chronicle will ..Kindly publish the
fignres givin the Star will be satisfied
there was no intention on the part of our
contemporary to knock, even a little bit.

PREMIER GIVES THANKS.
Gives Assurance of His Earnest Wish
to Develop Province and thus
Promote Prosperity,
Star has received the following letter
from Premier McBride which it gladly
publishes. It is hoped it will have a
mollifying influence upon Grit quibblers
and pessimists who see nothing but dire
calamity in the great landslide, snowslide
or rockslide, which buried the 'Libs' last
Thursday when the polls closed :
"lam deeply, very deeply, grateful to
the joeople of British Columbia for the
recognition which the government and
my policy have received at the polls.
The result did not come wholly as a surprise, for I was convinced from the indications that the Attorney-rGeneral and I
met with all over the country during our
tour that it would be virtually a clean
sweep for the Conservative policy in
British Columbia.
"The people of the Province have
shown» unreservedly their confidence in
the proposal to bring in the Canadian
Northern railway line and to extend the
Kettle River Valley railway.
" Between now and the session of the
legislature, which it is expected will
open on January 20th, no time will be
lost in concluding the final agreement
to be submitted to parliament containing
specifically all of the terms that I have
promised to the people. The railwaj
legislation will have first place in the
sessional program and the bills will be
passed as expeditiously as possible.
" This may be taken as the commencement by the. government of a very substantial and progressive policy of development by railway building.
" I want especially to thank the Conservative press throughout the province
and all Ihe speakers who assisted on the
platform during the just ended campaign,
the workers whose unremitting industry
contributed to success, and lastly I want
to acknowledge to the country the efficient and invaluable services rendered
during the campaign by my colleague,
the Hon. W. J. Bowser. No leader could
have a more faithful and energetic lieutenant than I possess in the Attorney-
General.- W*0?!
" Encouraged and supported, by the
strongly expressed confidence of the people, I hope to so carry on the public
affairs of B.C. as to secure for the province the fullest and largest measure of
substantial progress and prosperity.
(Signed), R. McBride."
RAILWAY BUILDING TO GO ON.
V.,V. & E. will Build from Both Ends
—Bailway Notes.
Word has been received in Keremeos
that the G.N.R. Co.'s right-of-way agent
has orders to proceed at once to the upper valley and complete the purchases of
right of way along the survey west of
Princeton ; also that the contracts foi* a
considerable distance will be let at once
so that work can be continued during the
winter in those portions where it is mostly rock work.
A despatch from New Westminster
states that a party of Great Northern engineers who have been in that city awaiting orders, received word on the 17th
inst to finish the survey of the line eastward from Abbotsford, the present ter
minus of the V. V. & E. Only a few de
tails remain to be comnleted.
It will be a welcome annocncement to
the people of the Similkameen that the
work of building is to be carried on with
out even stopping for the winter ; for
though they have not as a rule shared the
pessimism as to the Hope route that had
seized many outsiders—even the Premier
himself—yet they had become used to
long interruptions in the work, and
would not have been surprised at further
delay.—Keremeos Chronicle.
Chief of construction, J. H. Kennedy,
is reported to be under orders to proceed
to Abbotsford, the present end of construction from the coast. L. M. Hale
will be resident engineer here. Construction will begin from Abbotsford east
and from Princeton westwards.
Steel is expected to be laid on the coal
spur in about a week.
'TWAS BIG VICTORY
Liberal Hosts Smitten Hip and
Thigh: Loquacious John
Bites Dust.
Similkameen   Betains Shaftord and
Wisdom with Prosperity and
Progress Prevail.
: Liberal party in British Columbia is a
thing of the past. Scarcely a remnant
left of a once useful and powerful party.
Dissension, caused by arrogance and corruption, has worked its deadly mission
breaking the backbone of the party. The
result is not a surprise to those who saw
the party controlled by the vulture class
of politician.
The railway policy hatched by McConnell snow 'Setting Sun' misled a few
in the Similkameen and proved to be the
rout of poor old John Oliver in his ho.me
constituency and in Victoria. On wjhom
now will the mantle of leader fall ? Better give it to the Socialists.
Mr. Shatford has again shown that he
is approved by the people. He has a
very flattering majority, which will encourage him to carry on the good work
begun. Following are some of the returns, the government being credited
with 37 out of 42 seats, the Liberals holding 2 and the Socialists 3 seats :
Shatford      Elmhirst

Beaverdell '. 8 2

The official count may change the foregoing figures somewhat but not enough
to alter the fact that Mr. Elmhirst is
so hopelessly 'snowed under' that he will
hardly dig out in time for the next election in 1913. As predicted, he will lose
his deposit and the country put to an
unnecessary expense, besides the loss of
time and money spent by electors in
attending the polls.
Local   Option   in   Princeton   polling
division stood 51 for and/52 against.
Vancouver and   Victoria   returned a
'solid five' and a 'solid four' respectively
in support of the government, as follows :
Conservatives.
Bowser 5411 ;   MacGowam 4451;   Mc-
Guire 4776 ; Watson 4087 ; Tisdale 4087;

den elected ; Delta, Mackenzie elected ;
Dewdney, Manson elected; Chilliwack,
Sam Carley elected; Ymir, Schofield
elected ; Okanagan, Ellison elected-,'
maj. 400.
NOTES.
The need of reorganizing the Liberal
party is evident. New blood must be
infused in its veins,- now clogged with
party parasites. Men of ability and
honor are required to reconstruct, otherwise the party will die with the incubus
of would-be politicians and manipulators. Ottawa can do much to restore the
old prestige and glorv/of the party.
Pat Welch's man/Ross, has had an irrefutable answer bo his mud throwing at
Bowser in the %r/at majority the minister
received. Pat Vhould not allow his man
to quit mud throwing on the G.T.P. for
the purpose of throwing mud at gentlemen vastly his superior.
Mr. Shatford has cause for a worthy
pride, and the people are proud of him.
What a sorry figure some people cut in
carrying water on both shoulders at one
and the same time?
Princeton is an honor to the constituency. Although a 'dead set' was made
to win it, electors stood firm for Mr. Shatford and progress. But for outside vote.rs
in favor of Elmhirst Princeton would
have rolled up thirty majority.
Mr. Shatford gave a fine address at ttfe"
close of his campaign Wednesday.night.
A large audience greeted him and gave a
very attentive hearing. Major Megraw
and W, C McDougall also addressed the
meeting.   Ernest Waterman presided.
J. O. Madden, C.E., leaves on a visit to
Minnesota today, returning about New
Vear. He has been connected with V.,
V. & E. construction and will resume
work after a holiday.
Regular trains are expected to be running by the 10th inst., connecting at
Oroville temporarily.
The station building is making good
progress.   An  engineer's office will also
be erected^ near the station at the head""

THE VOICE OP THE PEOPLE.
Great victory ! Progress triumphant ! Railway policy and
development mightily endorsed by
the people of the Similkameen.
Mr". Shatford is to be sincerely congratulated for his splendid victory.
Growing in popularity and in the
■confidence of the people he has a
greater majority and for the third
time is returned as representative of the Sicilkameen. His
record could not be successfully
assailed by his opponents and his
ability to conduct the affairs of the
constituency in a manner reflecting
■credit upon himself aud his supporters remains undisputed. Some
"attempt to bespatter his standing
by attacking an official, miserably
failed. Mr. Shatford comes out of
the fray measuring the highest in
public esteem, commanding the respect of his enemies and proving a
representative of whom all may be
proud. He conducted an honorable campaign and never for a moment gave way to slander, vituperation or insinuation. He will now
have the opportunity he so much
desired to further the interests of
the whole district and finish the
work he had so earnestly begun in
building roads, bridges and trails
for the development of our great
mineral and other resources.' Star
congratulates him on his splendid
victory and wishes him restoration
to former physical strength, after
long illness.
HOW WILL GREAT VICTORY
AFFECT PREMIER?
The mandate of the people was
so emphatic on the McBride railway
policy last Thursday that the Premier will not have any occasion to
delay in giving effect to that mandate and to that policy. It is not
recorded in Canadian history where,
any leader of a government has
received a more flattering expression of confidence in him and his
policy than has been accorded Premier McBride. In giving this
hearty expression the voice of the
people was mighty in condemning
the L/iberal campaign of blind opposition, of retrogression and villifi-
•cation.    This  province has been so
long throttled with a succession of
incompetent and non-progressive
governments that the great mass of
the people were looking for a deliverer, one who had a message pregnant with progress and development. Mr. McBride had tfife courage to launch his railway policy in
the face of cabinet dissension, fo!*"
which he not only won the admiration of the people -but gained their
confidence. He has, by his good
statecraft in the past, shown that
he is capable of grasping bigger
things. And the people have said
to him in unmistakable terms : 'Go
ahead.'
Premier McBride stands in the
unique position of a leader without
any opposition. The Liberals have
been virtually wiped out of the
province, and as a party in the
legislative assembly they are prac-,
tically extinguished. Their only
hope now is to coalesce with the
Socialists under 'Comrade Haw-
thornthwaite,' and offer such opposition as they may The utter rout
and annihilation of the provincial
Liberal party will have the effect of
testing Premier McBride to his
fullest ability in party generalship.
He is certainly in a position to
wield authority with a strong arm
and an. iron grip if he so desires.
But it is not to be expected of him
for he has always shown good taste
and fine tact in party affairs.
Already some of the defeated
ones are bemoaning tbe fate of the
province for sending such an overwhelming majority of Conservatives to the House.. They are very
apprehensive of dire results and
smell corruption long before there
is a sign of any. It is well always
to consider from whence come these
unfounded suspicious. Blue ruin
Liberals just now are affected with
that plague, political dyspepsia; resulting from an overdose of something hard to swallow.
There is no reason why Premier
McBride should not give as honest
and capable administration with a
House full of supporters as with an
opposition mentally weak though
strong in numbers. In any case
his position is now so strong that
he will be able to give the public
the very best civil service they have
ever had and reorganize the provincial police force so that proper
protection and due enforcement of
the laws will be afforded. Star expects great things from Premier
McBride, bringing contentment and
prosperity to the people and adding
glory and honor to his already brilliant career.

OUR COAL TRADUCED.
From 1st Page.
Mr. Laiid should not be unduly alarmed
about Princeton coal finding a market.
It is the general opinion of mining men,
dealers and consumers here that this coal
is superior to any coal but anthracite for
domestic purposes. It gives off little
smoke, is not gaseous, never clogs chim-
nies or stovepipes, does not destroy stoves
or soil the finest linen on clothes lines
by falling soot. It is an ideal coal for
the home.
It is understood that the, railway people are well satisfied with Princeton coal
for use in their locomotives. They will
require some 50 tons daily when the line
is ready for regular service.
The .Hedley Gold Mines Co. will use
Princeton coal exclusively for steaming
as soon as the coal mine spur is ready to
enable shipping. There is no lack of
market for this fuel in the Boundary,
Spokane and Big Bend districts. The
Oroville-Wenatchee linewill, when completed, permit direct shipments to the
coast as well as to intermediate points.
Tbe Vermilion Forks Co have made
good progress with the installation of
their hoisting and mining plant. By the
new year it is expected that fifty miners
will be employed, this force being increased until 400 tons daily are produced,
Additions to that tonnage will require
increased power and plant.
that half the work was done by  the end
of the first week in October.
Once it was possible to buy radium at
$2 a milligramme ; now the the market
price is $90 a milligramme, equal to
$2,500,000 an ounce.
The bridge has been finished across the
Similkameen and the statton yard is
being put in shape for regular traffic.

The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits aud copper 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 in 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 57.50 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 he returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can yon afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you ?

AEROPLANE IN PROSPECTING.
The utility of flying machines in  mit-
"vS»»ing seems rather far fetched nevertheless,
the statement  already  appears in  print
that certain copper interests are considering it as a  possible means for locating
copper deposits lying in places at prestnt
practically inaccessible.   As a means of
of amusement, as an implement of war,
and, more remotely and to a limited extent, as a means of transportation of passengers and  ireight,  the  aeroplane  and
/-/-oiie dirigible balloon are  sure  to find   a
y rapidly-widening field of usefulness,  but
it is doubtful if the prospector will find
either to be superior  to  a pair of good
stout legs or the old reliable burro as a
means of locomation in rough country.—
