The Coast is waiting for fine, Princeton domestic coal
We hear the tread of pioneers,
Of cities yet to be;
Vol. XI. No. 6.
Self righteous persons, blind to own faults, see many in others
The first low wash of waves where soon
Shall roll the human sea.
PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1910.        $2 a Year in Advance
SEES PROSPEROUS DATS FOR
PRINCETON DISTRICT.
Hon. E. Dewdne? came up from Victoria last week, leaving for home on
Monday last. The 'Governor' is in fine
health and spirits after his trip to the
Old Country., More than any other man
in the province he has opportunity for
learning the trend of events and the
business prospects generally throughout
the Dominion, besides his wide knowledge of the political and commercial
history of B.C. make his opinion valuable and reliable. He thinks Princeton
and district are on the brink of prosperous days, due very largely to the keen
interest taken in the coal and ore resources of this section. He notes the
la:k of Dominion government buildings
here, aud thought waterworks, electric
lighting and good sanitation necessary
for a giowing and progressive place. It
is proposed to increase facilities for the
manufacture of lumber by the Similkameen Lumber Co., in which .Governor
Dewdney is largely, interested, the addition of an uptodate dry kiln being one
improvement and an extensive cribwork
to enclose log pond is also to be carried
out. The Governor expects to return to
Princeton shortly. He is so favorably
impressed with conditions here, together
with the excellence of the climate, that
he may take up permanent residence in
ihis section before long.
RESOLUTION REGARDING IRISH
SELF GOVERNMENT.
That much inte est is taken in British
r-olltics, even in far removed <!Princeton.
may be observed by the following resolution passed by Orange Lodge No. 2102
at its last session, Jan. c5th : " Resolved
—That we, members of Loyal Orange
Lodge, No. 2102, Princeton, B. C, believing in self government in local matters as a solution of many troubles now
perplexing British statesmen regarding
Ireland, and having in view the peace,
comfort aud welfare of our brethren in
that country, beg to respectfully recommend for the consideration of His Maj-
jesty's government in gtajiting a measure
of hgme_rul£, that two self governing
legislative bodies be formed, thus separating the dominant and opposing religious elements, thereby promoting
peace and harmony." Copies of the
resolution were ordered to be sent to the
Worshipful Grand Master of British
North America, to the Colonial and Home
Secretaries, and to the Hon. Joseph Martin, member elect for St. Pancras East,
London.
A party of mining engineers are at
Granite Creek taking levels and defining
tie North Fork coal basin preparatory
to putting the mine. in shape for operation when the railroad reaches that point
Lewis Hind, M.E., Victoria, was in
town yesterday on mining business.
RAILWAY AND COAL
Time Proves All Things: No
Doubt Whatever About
Hope Route.
Vancouver Must Benefit Largely by
Completion of Road, Bringing
Similkameen Trade.
Jim Hill's, ^statement that he would
build his railway line over Hope Mountain is about to be realized. It was
learned this morning from A. E. Howse,
who has just returned from -Princeton
and the Similkameen ^district that the
Great Northern has let the contract for
another 18 miles of road from Princeton.
Some time ago it was announced that
the contract for 50 miles of road from the
Abbotsford side had been let to Foley,
Welsh & Co., who have secured this contract, and together with the latest con
tract let there is now left but a distance
of 34 miles of road to be constructed over
the Horje_Mojiniairi to form the connecting link in the line.
Mr. Howse states that the people of
Vancouver and vicinity cannot realize
what the new line will mean to them
commercially, aud that there was a tremendously large reason back of Hill's
daring feet of engineering is seen from a
few facts about the country as related by
Mr. Howse.
"The new line,,' he said, "will throw a
large part, if not the greater part, of the
Similkameen trade to Vancouver,' and
will open one of the richest coal-bearing
districts in the entire country. This
trade at present is being diverted to
Spokane, Washington, which is benefitting greatly thereby. However, Vancouver is the logical point of outlet for
the thousands and thousands of tons of
coal that must be sent out from the district. The coal itself is lignite, of the
best imaginable quality for house use,
and there are 20,000 acres of it untouch
ed as yet. The entire town of Princeton
is underlaid by a great coal seam, the
wealth of which can hardly be realized.

HOSPITAL COMMITTEE MEET.
A private letter received by J. D. Lumsden, member of the Princeton hospital
committee, from L. W. Shatford, M.P.P.,
urges immediate action in supplying him
with data and amount required in order
to place a sum in the estimates now being
compiled for the fiscal year. A full meeting of the members of the hospital com
mittee is called at 5 o'clock in the office
of the Bank of Commerce (Tuesday,
Feb. 1.) This matter is very urgent and
the thanks of the community are due
Mr. Shatford for his kindly interest.
THE WEEKLY GRIST
Personal, General and District
News Boiled Down to
Pithy Paragraphs.
Robins Came a Little Early but Hal-
ley's Comet Arrives on Time
in West.
'The robins and crows came a little
early last week, atsuch of zero weather
having caught them uhawares. Who.
does not welcome these feathered friends,
and who would not scatter grain or
crumbs for them on a frosty morning?
Turn your optics toward the western
horizon about sunset and try to locate
the old man Halley's comet. It is approaching the earth at a speed of about a
million miles a day and will be nearest
Princeton some time in May.
The smoker to be held in the I.O.O.F.
hall on Friday evening is expected to
produce some real fun and a good time
is anticipated. Clean sport, boxing and
wr*stling, step dancing are on the program. Refreshments will be served.
This is the first smoker held in Princeton
and on its good management will depend
largely the success and popularity of
future ones. See it and then be in a position to know whereof }-ou speak.
Geo. H. Broughton, D.L.S., left onf
Monday for Penticton, having been en'-
gaged ;in this section surveying several
properties. He will be at Princeton again:
as soon as business demands his presence.;
It is reported that agents of the Great
Northern have purchased^JL_Rahbitt's
ranch  above Granite_Creek.   It is said
that the ground will be required for the
location of coke ovens for the treatment
of North Fork coal.

A. Murchie left for Westbank, in the
Okanagan di^triCRp yesterday, and expects to return in the early spring.
H. Massonat, watchmaker and jeweler,
threatened with appendicitis, has been
detained at Keremeos for the past week
or two on medical advice in the hope that
an operation might be averted. He is
making fair progress, which, it is hoped
will lead to quick recovery.
'Chatty' Chattertou, representing R. P.
Rithet & Co., was in town last week.
He is the same old familiar spirit and
always looks forward to the time when
he will settle down here.
Col. Stevenson returned Saturday from
a trip to Spokane, and chief coast cities.
He met many old tillicums who made
urgent inquiries about this section.   He
predicts a boom in Similkameen minerals this year.
F. E. Groffman, of Groffman & Rose,
Similkameen Lands and Mines, went
down to Spokane yesterday on a business
visit and expects to return Monday next.
W. J. Sanardge, of Coleman, Alb., coal
expert, was in town yesterday and went
up-to Granite Creek.
Mr. Marshall, of Spokane, interested
in the United Empire mining deal, was
in town recently.
Board of Trade meeting next Monday
night at 8 o'clock.
RUNAWAY ACCIDENT.
An accident that might easily have had
a very serious ending, occurred to Gor-
aon.Murdoch last Thursday while coming down the trunk road near China
creek. He had a sleigh load of wood,
which got beyond his control, the horses
being unwilling or unable to check the
speed which resulted in upsetting the
whole outfit. Mr. Murdoch was badly
bruised and cut, receiving a fracture of
the jaw and a rib. His nephew, on the
load with him. jumped in time to escape
injury. It will be some days>before the
patient is able to be about. Many friends
will be glad to hear of his complete recovery.
WAH VETERAN MAY YET BE
MODERN CRCESUS.
H. Averv, sr., is a lucky man. As a
veteran of the historic Fenian raid in
1866, in which he served his country with
gallantry and distinction throughout a
long, strenuous and bloody campaign,
he was presented by the government
(Cons.) with 160 acres of fertile agricultural land in noithern Ontario near the
line of the transcontinental now building from ocean to ocean. The title carries with it all mineral deposits. Mr.
Avery's land is in the Porcupine district,
which gives promise or rivalling 'the
celebrated Cobalt silver mines. (Drejn
some discoveries run as high as $1,000
per and an old fashioned stampede of
miners and prospectors is on. Mr. Avery
has inquiries about his property but he
is not anxious to sell. The whole acreage may yet prove to be ore producing,
in which case Mr. Avery would be rich
enough to buy and sell such men as
Jim Hill and Andy Carnegie. May it be
so.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Municipal ownership is  fast becoming popular in  every  civilized
country.    In  eastern  Canada  and
4he Old Country,  wherever the ex-
-jjeriment has been tried, much satis
faction has   resulted.    In the small
town* of Prescott in Ontario a year's
trial  of   municipal    ownership   of
water and  light  has just proven a
profitable and  in  every way satisfactory  venture.     The necessaries
,gf..,life, ' such  as  water and light,
<:and   travelling   facilities,   ought to
be So-cheap thai the poorest citizen
Would not be stinted.
It seems  now  that  Britain is to
i: be again put id  the  political  campaign crucible and submitted to the
'fiery  test  of purification.    It is to
be regretted that   the working class
of Brftagn  will  not  accept  or endorse- a  policy which  aims to remove  certain  inequalities  in taxation,   and   make  of   the  house ot
lords a workable and sensible legisr
latiy'e institution.    The will of the
people .as expressed in the bouse of
■ commons'becomes  a   burlesque of
the most farcical  kind when a collection  of   non-elected   aristocrats
apply , the    veto.     Our   Canadian
senate  is  farcical    enough    as   an
appointed body but  it  must not be
compared with a pedigreed, hereditary   house,   composed   largely  of
men who have  no  other qualification for legislator than that of being
their father's son.
There can be no real unity of the
.British empire . among its widely
separated colonies unless there is
something more tangible than mere
sentiment. A, business compact as
well as a defeusive alliance must
be formed if. the unity of the Empire is to be maintained. John Bull
cannot expect his sons and daughters across the seas to see things as
he does through his old age lenses.
Ev'er^ since the Boston tea party
John has been more indulgent with
his children, but he must treat them
as equal's and adroit them to his
counsel chamber if he would have
their support in times of German
or other equally ludicrous invasion,
A large number of strangers and
returning  pioneers are expected in
Princeton   this   year.     This   year
is the deciding one, for the development and progress of the town and
district'will give some tangible clue
to thefuture.    Much hinges on the
individual efforts of citizens to impress visitors with the   permanency
of the  town.     Sidewalks,   electric
light, waterworks  and street grading are necessary.     It would be a
misfortune  to  allow promising investors  to gain   a pessimistic view
of the town   for  want  of   a  little
enterprise. The government should
improve its own property here with
fences  and sidewalks and continue
the good work  of grading between
the   Similkameen   and   Tulameen
bridges.    Last year,  when grading
was in progress an oversight of tbe
road    superintendent  permitted  a
hump in   this   road  that destroys a
beautiful   perspective   from   bridge
to bridge.    At  slight cost this can
be removed and a culvert so placed
as to remove the  accumulating waters of a freshet.    Sidewalks to the
station and to the bridges  are very
needful and thesemust be provided
for   in   some   manner,   even to the
extent  of incorporating  the town.
Adequate fire protection  and strict
sanitary   regulations   demand early
aud serious   consideration.      What
remains   to   be done in regard to a
general hospital will be determined
and   announced   by   the   board   of
trade.
