PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1909. $2 a Year in Advance,,
THE BOARD OF TRADE
Resolution Adopted Urging Removal of Coal Duty
in Canada.
Reciprocal Free Trade for Coal Means
Increased Foreign Demand for
Princeton Product.   .
that quarter with pleasure. J. J. Hill is
a powerful advocate of free trade in coal
and all other articles of commerce. A
copv of the resolution will be forwarded
to him and also to the Mayor of Spokane
who has recently voiced the general
opinion of his citizens as to the necessity
of obtaining free coal from B.C.
The Board adjourned.
At the monthly meeting of the Board
of Trade on Monday evening, after routine, communications were read and a
resolution adopted.
The Consolidated Gas and Electric
Co. of Chicago wrote, asking to he favored with a trial order of their Boulevard Arc Street Lamp and offering to
install one lamp for 30 days.free of all
charge.    Letter ordered fyled.
From Albert Amy, 257 Oak St , San
Francisco, inquiring on behalf of a parly
of four ior free homestead land and stating that they would be in British Columbia in the spring. Secretary Marlow replied.
The following resolution was introduced and adopted by unanimous consent : " That in the interests and welfare of the people of Canada, and for the
removal of any impediment to the advantageous foreign marketing of British
Columbia coal, it is respectfully urged
that the Dominion governmen at its nexi
session U.ke such action as will secure
reciprocal free trade in coal with the
United States, (a) That the coal measures of Princeton depend largelv for their
development and operation on the foreign demand of their product, ^b) That
the removal of-ho>.h duties between Can
ada and the United States on coal would,
it is believed, cheapen this necessary
article and thus be of the greatest good
to thfc greatest number."'
Remarks on the resolution by members
showed that both high protectionists as
well as disciples of Cobden, Conservative and Liberal, were equally urgent and
earnest in thiir expressed desire to have
reciprocal free trade in coal noith and
south of the international line. It was
pointed out that at Oroville, Wash., the
present price of coal was $9 per ton and
at Spokane it was $8 and inferior coal at
that. With the railway completed to
Princeton and the duty removed those
prices would be reduced about 25 per
c;nt., and allowing for competition, it
would be very much cheaper than even
the reduction stated
A copy of the resolution will be forwarded to some of the B.C members at
Ottawa, the original being sent to the
member for Yale Cariboo, Martin Burrell, MP. A committee of United Statts
Congress has been appointed to report
on the matter and, no doubt. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier will  receive any overtures from
LIKES THE DRY BELT.
J. D. Lutnsuen, manager for the A. E.
Howse Co . returned last week after an
absence c f five months; due to illness
Recently he whs at Vancouver taking
special treatment and made t-uch progress that he is enabled to get into har
ness with his wonted vigor. Mr. Lums-
den is very pleased to be back again in
Princeton, away from the fog, mist, and
dewy skies of the coast. He could never
get accustomed to the diving suits worn
there, and now, more than ever, he appreciates the dry belt with its vaulted
blue skies and bracing atmosphere. He
looks forward to a busy commercial year,
all branches of trade being affected by
the onward sweep of prosperity, due to
a continental revival and the distribution
of a lot of Manitoba wheat monev. Many
friends are glad to see him back and in
restored health.
THAT SWITCHBOARD.
It is about a month ago since there was
a little commotion over the announcement by Superintendent Stevens that he
would be pleased to put in a switchboard
here for the accommodation of the public. So far as known nothing further has
been done, beyond the announcement.
If Mr. Stevens is not careful wireless will
be installed here before he shakes off
that drowsiness which blights the whole
system and keeps receipts down. The
Marine Department has recently had an
investigation and some necessary 'fumigation' performed. What will be the
result of a similar course in the Public
Works Department?
Angus Stewart, millwright and machinist, has been a visitor to Princeton
for the past few days, having recently
been laid off by the shut down of the
Daly Reduction Co. at Hedley. He has
erected removed and rebuilt some large
saw mills in the interior of B.C.
DaveGerow, ex-Sergeant R.N.W.M.P.,
has located in Princeton recently, having
heard of the great natural resources of
this district. He admires this climate
and the situation of Princeton. The
Sergeant is a veteran of the Riel revolution in 1885 and was seriously wounded
in one of the sanguine battles fought
with the pesky redskins. As is well
known 'president' Riel lost his head, or
rather had his neck broken for his unbridled lootlust.

GRIP OF FROST KING
Unusual   Weather    Surprises
Oldest Inhabitant and
the Prophets.
PRINCETON DIRECTORY.
Hard Frost all Over Northwest States
and Canada—Serious Distress
Not Reported.
Latest telegrams show that the frost
king was busy outside of the Similkameen banana belt. At Portland and
Seattle the thermometer read 12 and 15
degrees below zero and 'the Columbia
river is icebound. Snow storms prevail
all along the coast.
Spokane and other interior points in
Washington have had exceptionally cold
weather, the thermometer ranging from
25 degrees to 35 below zero. At Belling-
ham the water pipes are frozen.
At Grand Forks 28 below zero was the
coldest in nine years. Nelson is a noted
warm place with the lake to moderate,
its coldest being 5 deg. below. Rossland
touched 25 as did many other Kootenay
points.
Granite Creek, 54 ; Aspen Grove, 62 ;
Laggan, 59 ; Regina. 45 and Calgary 50
show that the cold wave is general.
Up to recently meadow larks have been
frequenting the Five Mile section. Since
Jack Frost has been cutting up such
pranks they became disgusted and
" flewed " away.
Local weather prophets, who are always wise after it happens, say that they
knew there would be a cold.snap by the
congregating of -bushy tails' in large
numbers, and the frequency of weddings
during the past few months.
The meteorological editor now regrets
that he did not put a proviso in his forecast of the weather last week and save
bis reputation for veracity. The weather
has been 'balmy' alright, alright, in spots
within a circle of six feet in diameter,
having a red hot stove for its centie. By
changing position often it was possible
to preserve the spinal column from the
subtle attacks of frostbitis.
Now, the ice harvest.
Just think of it, 83 below zero at Edmonton. At 60 a dog's bark is said to
freeze, at 80 there is no bark and no dog.
Many are cold but few are frozen—a
parodical statement, yet true.
Did anyone say that the Jimhillka-
meen had not yet emerged from the glacial period or that it had made a dash for
the pole.   49 below freezo and all is well.
The weather is now back to normal,
above zero and still rising.

COAL NOT TO BE BLAMED.
While  stoves  made  in   the east
may be perfectly adapted to the use
of the coal produced in  those parts
.yet  for   the   purpose   of   burning
. the  sub-bituminous Princeton coal
they require some  simple modifications.     It    would   seem  that  the
stoves made  in  Hamilton, Toronto
and London, which  are most generally  in  use  here, were designed
for burning hard coal, whereas, the
Princeton coal  is soft.    From experience gained  there  is good rea-
•son to believe, that both the firebox
•or base  and  the  grate are at fault.
A large grate  area   with  plenty of
•draught and a firebox or base without .any   convergence   toward   the
bottom   will   remedy the difficulty.
In stoves  thus  constructed  and in
use here there is perfect combustion
without any slag or clinker..   Base
burning  stoves   usually   narrow at
the bottom which tends to compress
our coal  as  it settles, it being soft
and   somewhat   fusible.      In   very
cold weather,   when  heavy feeding
is required, it would  appear that a
base larger at   the  bottom than .the
top would admit of increased grate
area   and   avoid   compression  from
the sides,   preventing  any   portion
of the burning mass   from   solidifying  and    destroying   the  draught.
Stated   briefly,   the   two  requisites
in   heating  stoves, at least, are increased    grate   area   and   bases as
at present used inverted.    The Star
does   not   presume   to go   into the
technicalities   of heat  and draught
in stoves, that is left   for the expert
designer of them.    What this journal aims   at   is   to call attention to
self-evident  defects • and avert any
derogatory  remarks  about Princeton coal when it is blameless.    Our
coal is an ideal domestic fuel, withr
out    gas,    almost   smokeless,   and
high in fixed carbon.    It, therefore,
should not be  maligned  because of
unsuitable stoves.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
According to the Hon. G. P.
Graham, Minister of Railways, the
government intends to change the
management of the Intercolonial
railway, with a view to making it
pay. This is of interest to British
Columbians, as we are taxed like
all other Canadians, to pay for this
government-owned railway. Other
railways make money for their
ownere, but the Intercolonial has
cost the people of Canada an average  of about  three million dollars
The British   Government is having   a   bard   time of it  these days.
The suffragettes   are   always interrupting their   debates   with shrieks
of "Votes for Women !" and when
Premier   Asquith  does get a measure discussed and passed the House
of throws   it   down.     The  suflr; -
gettes   have   got   so   tiresome   that
when a member of the governmeut
addresses a public   meeting no women are admitted   to  the hall.    As
to the Lords, no   less a person than
the   Chancellor  of the   Exchequer
says  they have   'usurped  the sov—'
ereignty that no   king   has claimed,
since  Charles  I.'     The   late .Mr.
Charles One, it will be remembered,
died  suddenly in the year 1649, as
the result of having bis head chopped  off   for  interfering  with    the
Parliament   of that day.    There is
no reason   why   women should not
have votes, but  there  are plenty of
arguments against it; the most important is,   that they don't want it
—at an)' rate the great majority are
indifferent  about  it.    If they ever
do want   it—well,    every    married
man   knows   what   happens sooner
or later when a woman wants anything.    If the   British government
believed that the noisy  suffragettes
represented a quarter of the women
of England  they  would give them
votes tomorrow.    In  the meantime
consider   Toronto.     In   that  city
there  are almost ten thousand women who have  votes  in municipal
elections,    They  are all taxpayers

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
THE NEWSPAPER GUY,
I see a man pushing his way through the
lines
Of cops where the  work of the   "fire
fiend" shines.
"The chief?"  I inquire—but a fireman
replies :
"Oh, no!   Why,   that's   one   of those
newspaper guys. '
I see a man walk through the door of a
show,
Where great crowds are blocked by the
sign "s. r. o."
"Is this man the star that no ticket he
buys?"
" Star nothin'! He's one of these newspaper guys."
I  see   a   man   start  bn   the   trail of a
crook,
And he scorns the police, but he brings'
him to book.
"Sherlock Holmes?"   I   inquire—some
one cries:
"Sherlock H— !   Naw, he's one of dese
newspaper guys."
And some   day   I'll pass by the great
"Gates of Gold,"
And see a man pass through unquestioned
and bold.
"A saint?"   I'll   ask   and   old   Peier'll
reply :
"No, he carries a pass—he's a newspaper
guy."

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
B. C. ORCHARDS.
Fruit Growing One of Our Leading
Industries, still in Infancy.
The ho.ticultural office has issued a
revised edition of the Spraying Bulletin.
The formulae given in this bulletin have
PfU been tested and are thoroughly reliable. Spraying has long been recognized as an important detail in the fruit
business, and the energy and thoroughness with which the provincial government deals with matters pertaining to its
interests are commendable.
In a letter accompanying the bulletin
Thomas Cunningham, provincial inspector of fruit pests, says :
" The present value of the orchards of
British Columbia has reached the enormous sum of fifteen million dollars, and
they are increasing in value at the rate of,
not less than 25 per cent, annually. It is
quite safe to estimate the value of these
orchards five years hence at thirty million
dollars.
"In view of this marvellous development every-man in this province who has
the slightest regard for the permanent
prosperity of this beautiful and highly
favored country, to spare no effort to
keep our orchards and gardens clean, and
the quality of our fruit up to the highesi
standard.
'• This can only be done by close
attention to thorough cultivation, pruning, and the intelligent use of insecticides
and fungicides.
" It is with a view to assist you that
this bulletin is placed in your hands.
If at any lime you feel the need of special
information to enable you to meet unusual conditions, all the assistance possible will be gladly given you on application at this office."
