Oscar Lachmund has been appointed
general manager of the B.C. Copper
company, and took charge of affairs in
Greenwood this week.
The possible location oe a smelter in
Princeton district is giving rise to considerable individual opinion as to a suitable site. The necessity for one is undoubted. A. smelter receiving custom ore
must be central and with down grade
hauls. Many ideal locations can be
fo_ind near Princeton.
The B C. Copper Company is making
gi od progress with preliminary work on
Copper mountain claims bonded some
time ago. Full gangs of men are at
work and with an anticipated early
spring much will be accomplished in
proving the various mineral properties.
W. A. Williams, smelter superintendent of the Granby company, was in
Grand Forks recently, returning from
Hidden Creek mine, where the Ganby is
preparing to construct a 2,000 ton per
day smelter. He reports that preliminary
work is making good progress. Mr.
Williams leaves for the east ou business
connected with the Granby.
Bornite, copper, iron and sulphur,
' peacock copper ore ' was named after

The Princeton Coal & Land Co. continues large shir vents of coal to Vancouver and interior points. No sign in
abatement of the large demand in the
early winter has been observed.
Upwards of eight hundred different
minerals are known to the mineralogists
and it was evidently ' quite a job ' to find
names not previously taken for use in
other branches of science.
A company has been formed with
Spokane capital to purchase the United
Empire and operate it as soon as possible
for the supply of coal to the B C. Portland
Cement Co., and ship to outside points
A considerable force of coal miners are
now at work developing and putting the
mine in shape for extensive operation.
From   a   number    of   well   informed
sources it is learned that the Voigt camp
deal is nearing consummation and that a |
definite announcement may be made any
BANK OF VANCOUVER.
Annual meeting of the Bank of Vancouver was held on the 14th inst., at
Vancouver. The report showed a pros
perous year and referred to plans for the
future.
There was an unusually large attendance, and L W. Shatford, M P P. for the
Smilkameen, general manager, presided-
Following the reading of the director's
report, the president, R. T. McLennan,
stated that the position of the bank had
been strength.ned materially during the
year in keeping loans down and bringing
the liquid assets up to an acknowledged
point of safety, thus placing the whole
organization in a healthy state.
This satisfactory condition was mainly
due to the efforts of the vice president
and the general manager. At the beginning of last \-ear on the solicitation of
the directors, Mr Shatford had consented
to resume the management of the bank
for a year, and it was greatly due to his
efforts that the advancement had taken
place.
He alluded to the fact that Charles G;
Pennock had been appointed Mr. Shat
ford's successor, and referred to th.
future of the banking institution, stating
that the prospects were bright owing to
the condition of British Columbia and
the West in general.
Votes of thanks to the  retiring directors, the general manager and staff con
eluded the meeting.
Mr. Shatford was the recipient of two
handsome presentations in token of his
popularity   among the staff at the bank,
both of which   he  acknowledged in feli
citous terms.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
P. Burns & Co., Ltd., will erect a much
larger and more uptodate buildings and

The annual report of the retiring
president of the board of trade at Penticton states that a site has been selected
for new Dominion public buildings.

GRADE MOVES SLOWLY
Grading Stopped by Injunction
to Obtain Settlement of
Rightofway Price
E E. Colley and his party of Kettle
Valley railway surveyors are working on
the Copper mountain side of the Similkameen near Smelter lake.
The grade is nearing completion as far
as Osprey lake, 20 miles from Piinceton.
No further contracts have been let as
there appears to b some doubt which
way the line of the K.V. will reach
Princeton, although three or four routes
are available.
A report has been circulated that the
Kettle Vallev and V.V. & E. will together
use the built portion from Princeton to
Coalmont, It is not probable though
possible.
Work on the K.V. has been stopped
at Okanagan lake, owing to an injunction
served by Capt. Stevens, with whom the
railway company does not agree as to
price of land for rightofway. The matter
will be settled by arbitration.

EXPLANATORY.
Editor Star—Sir: Will you be kind'
enough to allow me through the medium
of your esteemed journal to give publicity
to the fact concerning my hall, known as
the Princeton Opera House, An injunction "Vas placed l_P_H t__- building by
Provincial Constable H. M^jLoggrs, on
December 27th, at the instigation of some,
individual, and the Ladies' Auxiliary of
the Princetou _u_ptt_,l actltrg—on Const.
H.TV1. Rogers1 directions decided not to
take the hall for their Masquerade ball
on December 31.
Wishing to do justice both to the
public and myself, I requested Mr. King
to make a thorough examination of the
building.) The resultySs you know, was
that he found . t perfectly sound in every
respect and capable of bearing any strain
likely to Be-plft on it.
I then communicated with Chief
Constable Dinsmore and asked for an
investigation. -S.ollowingthis he came to
Princeton and removed the injunction,
telling me to proceed as before, and that
he would stand between myself and any
difficulty that might arise through the
injunction.
In the meantime I should be grateful
if you will make these facts known to
prevent any misapprehension arising in
the minds of the people of Princeton and
vicinity. Thanking you, I am, sir,
faithfully yours, W. H. Thomas.

LOOKING BACKWARD.
A correspondent sends the  followiug
clipping  from  the   Saturday  Sunset   of
October  16th,  1909       The  reader   may
form his own  deductions and smile or
frown   as   he   pleases   at   the   promised
through train  service  from  Spokane to
Princeton.   There is no prospect or sign
or whisper that   the abominable layover
at Oroville will be eliminated, although
it is three years since the Saturday Sun
set  made  the  statement.    At  that time
the track  was  laid  to   Keremeos,   and
grading   was    slowly   coming    toward
Princeton.   The Oroville layover is still
working   to   the   disadvantage   towards
of Princeton  and   other   towns   in   the
Similkameen, and it should be stopped :
' From Keremeos, the traveller takes a
daily train to Oroville at 2 p.m.     There
as at Spence's Bridge he waits overnight
to catch a train at 6 a m. for Spokane an
where he arrives the following afternoon
at 5 35-   The G.N.R. has promised to run
a through train from Princeton to Spokane as soon  as the  line  is completed,
which   will  be  in the  course of a FEW
weeks.   The distance from Keremeos to
Spokane is 265 miles.    From Spokane to
Seattle there is a main line service of the
Griat Northern  the distance being 339
miles and the time being thirteen hour:-.
From Seattle to Vancouver  is  157 miles
and the time is under eight hours.   So
that with the   present service  travelling
day and night one may go from Keremeos
to Vancouver in about two  days.     Probably eight or ten hours will be clipped
off this when the through service between
Spokane and Princeton is established and
the  all   night   stopover   at   Oroville   is
eliminated.    But  Spokane has  still  the
best of Vancouver by about twen.yseven
hours.     Seattle has the advantage of the
time between that city and Vancouver '
PRESERVE FORESTS.
European countries are spending
millious annually in au effort to make
fertile many valleys which are at present
being subject alternately to deluge and
draught, and consequently unfit for
agriculture. If the province of British
Columbia is to maintain the lead which
she has already attained in fruit pro
ducing, it is essential that no fires be
allowed to lick the one retentitive influence, the forest, off the mountain slopes.
As a result of the many urgent demand .
from fruit growers in the Okanagan
vallev, the Forest Branch has determined
that a very strict patrol shall be maintained during the dry months, and the
Fire Protection branch of the Dominion
Railwav Commission has issued an order
for more efficient patrols along the lines
of railways

One of the greatest points in successful
winter poultry management is to keep
on the hustle, keep them scratching and
always on the hunt for small grain or
seed    thrown    among    the    scratching
material.
Thar close confinement that chickens
have jy undergo during the winter must
be compensated for by providing good
food, gren food, clean houses and abundant exercise. Just as walking is the most
healthful exercise a man can indulge in,
so is scratching to a chicken. See that
all your chickens are scratching.
Keep your hens dry, cold does not
affect them as much as damp. The combination of cold and damp is fatal.
Chickens will stand a great deal of dry
cold but will die off like flies in a damp
henhouse.
Hot spices containing cayanne pepper
are only fit for using at the end of the
laying season to urge on a lot of old hens
to lay up their last clutches of eggs
previous to making the acquaintance of
the executioner. Mustard acting more
on the digestive is safer to use than
cayanne, and is said not to injure the
liver in  the same way as cayanne un
doubtedly does.
Do not forget clean water, charcoal,
grit, oyster shell and gieen food are
essentials, not luxuries, if the chickens
are to be a pa- ing proposition.
The  feed   must be  considered if you
expect  a profit from a flock.    Sprouted
oats makes a cheap green food and is a
good egg producer.      Feed once a day as
much  as  they   will  eat  up   clean.     By
sprou.iim  them  the  palatability  of the
oats is increased considerably.    The ordinary   method  is  to soak the grain in
water   about    io   hours,   drain   off   the
water   and empty  the   oats into  a  box
having   small    holes    in    the    bottom.
Sprinkle them night and morning with
hut   water   and   when   the   oats   begin
to  sprout  spread them into other boxes,
having them ahout  two inches deep in
each    bos:,   and    sprinkle  twice   a   day
with  wS^tn  w_\er.      When   the  sprouts
•»re two inches U.ng begin feeding them
and rtlsq*^j_nin sprouting another lot so to
have   them   ready when the  first are all

WAVE OF DEVELOPMENT.
Though it may be tardily coming
it is nevertheless surely moving
toward the Similkameen, and the
development so long held by adverse causes is certainly in sight.
With coal companies either producing or about to, a large ore
mining company anchored and
prepared to expend large sums of
money on permanent work, a
cement plant nearing completion
and another railway constructing,
there is ground for.the hope that
this year will witness unusual
activities. Besides these larger
enterprises there are innumerable
smaller ones aggregating, much in
money and influx of population.
Mines, timber and agriculture are
the bases of prosperity ar.d progress
in many countries possessing only
one of these resources. All three
are to be found in the Similkaireen
accompanied by those important
assets of scenery, hunting, fishing
and a splendid climate. Great
commercial centers have been built
up in Alberta and the other prairie
provinces solely on the one resource
of agriculture. Analogous reasoning would not withold from the
Similkameen district like prosperity
and development with a variety of
resources that cause expressions of
surprise from the visitor. Wherever
one turns the eye some mineral or
other raw supply may be found.
For production and manufacture
a never ending power is found in
the water of rivers and streams and
in the coal measures. Tbe Similkameen has immense possibilities.
It is close to the great seaports if
direct railway connection were
given. Keremeos, Sidley, Okanagan Falls and tributary country
produce the best of fruits and farm
crops to be found anywhere. Hedley
is the far famed gold camp of the
Similkameen. It is a one company
camp whose sole aim is to pile up
big dividends for disbursal in a
foreign country and bleed the town
and district white in doing so. A
company with the wealth of ore
that is mined at Hedley, ought
to spend some of its hoardings iu
developing and smelting, assisting
the town, miner and prospector and
helping on the progress so much
needed in this new country. A
country that exists for the sole
purpose of breeding foreign money
bugs is not much benefit to the
Similkameen. With new blood,
new spirit and a progressive policy
the Hedley company would induce
a large population to flow into the
town. The whole valley of the
Similkameen is rich in resources.
Princeton, East Princetou, Coalmont, Tulameen, Otter Valley and
Ashnola are in that stage of existence and development which de
mand attention. The towns and
various sections of the Similkameen
disirict should work together in
perfect harmony and endeavor to
awaken dormant companies holding,
it may be, large tracts of coal
mining and agricultural land, thus
stifling enterprise and keeping
arable ground from cultivation.
There are some 20,000 acres of
good land tied up in the vicinity of
Princeton, and it is about time it
was producing. The wave of development is retarded by a dog-in-
the-manger policy, and the people
are the losers. Everyone join in
the procession marching from
poverty to prosperity, the stragglers
must fall to the rear.
NOTES  AND  COMMENTS.
Nine-tenths ot the people in
Canada will say 'well done' to
J. H. Burnham for his motion in
the commons to abolish honorary
titles. A relic of feudalism it ought
not to be allowed to take root in a
democratic country. No class distinctions or titles have any real
merit or worth when money can
buy them, as is so often the case.
A chair of metaphysics should
not be overlooked in the new university curriculum for this province. The orthodox theological
schools have so long taught materi
alism that the world is steeped in
it and consequent religious retrogression. The day is breaking
when spirit is demonstrated and
defined with as much precision as
any mathematical problem. The
origin of thought, the power of
mind over matter and spiritual healing will be better understood if studied with metaphysical aid. Humanity is peering toward spirit
more and more having found materialism insufficient, unsatisfying.
Universal peace and disarmament
will Le so much nearer when women are given their rightful place
alongside lordly, selfish man in the
body politique. Mothers iove their
boys too well to make food for shot
and shell of them. Some jingoes
say war is necessary. Is any evil
necessary ? No ! Woman suffrage
must come if we are to advance and
pull out of a miry rut.

' So you have been to France again,
Mrs. Comeup?' 'Yes, seems like we
can't keep from dear Paris. Indeed, my
daughter say's we're regular Parasites.'
Minister—' Is your poor father any
better, my dear?
Little Girl—' Oh, yes. He's is so much
better that muvver's stopped prayin' for
him and gone to jawin' him again '
[ How many of these got out of here? '
asked the angry farmer.
' I don't know,' replied the new hired
man, rubbing his eyes. 'After I had
watched five or six of 'em jump over the
fence I seemed to lose the count, for that
always puts me to sleep.'
Two dear ladies were discussing hus
bands. Said  the first :   I  have been
married   three    times. Each   of   my
husbands is dead though. They were
all cremated.'
' Her friend was a dear old maiden
lady. She listened attentively to her
friend, and when she had concluded the
sad story of her life she said : ' How
wonderful are the ways of Providence !
Heie I've lived all these years and have
never been able to get oue husband and
you've had husbands to burn.'
The Doctor—' How is the patient this
morning ? '
The patient's wife—' I think he's better
but he seems to be worrying about something.'
The Doctor—' Hum ! Yes. Jnst tell
him I won't send it in for a mouth That
ought to freshen him up some.'
' Well George ' said the president of
ihe company to old George, 'how goes it.'
'Fair  and   tniddlin'   sir.'   George   an
swered.    And he continued to currycomb
a  bay horse.    'Me and   this  here ho'ss,'
George said, suddenly, 'has worked Tor
your firm sixteen years.'
' Well.well,'said the president thinking
a little guiltily of George's, seventeen
dollar salary. 'And I suppose you ai'e
pretty highly valued George, eh? H'in.'
said George, ' the both of us was tool-
sick last week, and they got a doctor, for
the hoss. but just docked my pay '
