WATERWORKS BECUN
Vermilion Forks Co. Make a
Preliminary Start with
water System.
In Operation Within a Tear, Displacing Wells and Meeting Need j
of Citizens.
The begiuning of construction of the
Princeton water works by the Vermilion
Forks Co. on Monday was a welcome
topic for citizens. Very largely these
necessary works contribute to the growth
of towns, in fact, modern civilization
cannot do without them. As part of the
preliminary program a road will be made
along the Tulameen river to the site of
the pumping station. Foreman Golds-
borough is in charge ot the roadmaking
and E. Barr Hall will superintend the
generai construction of the water works
system. Details of the system will,
no doubt, be announced later, but for
the present enough is known to satisfy
the public mind that an nptodate service
will be installed. The old fashioned and
unsanitary wells at best must soon give
place to the healthful mode of supplying
water to towns and cities. All citizens
will gladly welcome and patron lze the
Princoton water works.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
The Moving  Throng,   Arrivals and
Departures of People Passing.
Luke Gibson returned last week from
Chilliwack, which place is now growing
with great rapidity.
Peter Swanson has gone to Spokane
for a few days' visit.
Geo. H. Broughton, D.L.S. and P.L.S.,
arrived in town Monday on professional
business and will be here for a few days.
Lewis Hind, M.E., Victoria, is in town
on mining business and expects to remain a few days.
Thos. Sloan left Monday for Vancou
yes on a business and pleasure visit.
Mrs. Van Rose, of Hedley, was a visitor to Princeton last week.
K. G. McNellie, district passenger
agent of the C.P.R. at Nelson was in
town, recently.
J. G. Macdonell has gone to Vancouver
where the attractiveness of real estate is
proving too great to withstand. He expects to locate there.
Hugh Kennedy arrived Monday from
outside points.
J. A. Brown, editor of the late Chronicle at Keremeos, was in town last week
on a business visit.
R. H.JCarmichael and
Motyiay/from  Keremeos,   where he has
been naanager of the E.T. bank, and will
wife arrived on
reside on Kenley Av. Both are popular
in the social arena and Mr. Carmichael's
severance from the board of trade there
gave that body a severe wrench which
caused expressions of regret followed by
a warm vote of thanks for his valuable
services as secretary ot the board'.
In explanation of the absence of a
school teacher for past two weeks and
of the fuitber delay now seemingly unavoidable, Mr. Avery, secretary of the
S-hool board, states that be has ■ eceived
a telegram from Miss Manly saying that
owing to sickness she would not be able
to leave for Princeton before tomorrow.
As she has to cross the continent it is
not likely school will open for another
week or ten days.
I Aylmer Hill, and wife of Welland,
Out., were recently guests of Mrs. Schisler and Mrs. Snowden. Mr. Hill will,
in all probability make his residence
here.
LARGE BOARDING HOUSE.
Fowler, Nelson & Lundgren are making go^oTprogresT^ri the large^ building
which they are erecting on Vermilion
Avenue for board and lodging purposes.
Mr. Nelson has already had experience
iu building hotels and finds it of much
service in planning the preser/t structure.
An office, sitting room and stairway form
the front of the ground floor, behind
being the dining room, kitchen, pantry,
bath room and two rooms at first to be
used as commercial sample rooms. Tbe
second floor will be divided into some
twenty^oncroesis.   The whole building,
32x86, two storeys, will be- finished with
the best workmansnip and material and
will have almost sound proof rooms. In
the construction of these rooms about 8
tons of wood fibre plaster will be used,
which at the present freight _jrates costs
nearly $300 laid down.
PLANING MILL RUNNING.
J. F. Waddell, manager of the Similkameen Lumber Co., has installed planing machinery on the company's ground
near the railway station. It is aimed to
meet a growing demand for dressed lumber and being located in the heart of
town is handy ,to; building operations
present and prospective. Special orders
for planed lumber, and everything in the
building line will be supplied as soon as
the company have premises in shape for
carrying a large stock. The sawmill at
Allison will keep the Princeton yard in
stock where it will be manufactured into
the desired product and delivered to customers. Manager Waddell is a practical
millman of wide experience with whom
it is a pleasure to deal. He has a down
town office in the Britton block.

A large safe weighing 6000 lbs. was recently placed in the Eastern Townships
bank, corner Bridge St. and Harold Av.
Manager Carmichael now feels that he
is safe from the attacks of fire or burglar,
and indeed the formidable proportions of
the safe, with massive doors and steel
bars, warrants that security. The bank
is now complete in every respect and has
comfortable quarters.
J. Morris, a Spokane mining man, arrived yesterday,
RESTAURANT-LODGING HOUSE.
Martin Lundin and H. L. Holmberg'
have begun ronssruction of a restaurant

will afford ample accommodation for a
large patronage. The'building is being
constructed in a substantial wayand when
completed will be a decided improvement
to the town.

COAL COMPANY MEETS.
The first annual meeting of the Osoyoos Coal Co., originally the Similkameen,
was 'recently Held in^Nelson. ' The following were elected directors: S. M.
Brydges, I. G. Nelson, Wm. Gosnell, J.
A. Gilker, Dr. Morrison. W. Waldie and
H. E. Goodeve. The company is composed of Nelson men and is a close corporation, no stock"1* being on sale. The
property of the company consists of 1,920
acres of crown granted coal lands, 3^
miles south-west from Princeton on the
Similkameen river. It is proposed to
develop the property as quickly as possible, work commencing about May 1st,
the hope being to ship coal to Nelson
by 1st October.—Colonist. ^, ,

CATERWAUL OF CATS.
Whether it is because this is spring and
all nature is in consequence rejuvenating
that there is an epidemic of cats in town
or whether it is the attractions of high
living that cause them to congregate
here is a matter for the naturalist to
solve. After a man has said his prayers
and retired to his 'virtnous couch' it cannot enhance his religious aspirations or
elevate the tone of his somewhat stag- •
nant spirituality to have a mixed assembly of cats in his backyard chanting
some awful medley in "keys from A;to G
stac-ca't-to. Last night seventee/ cafs "4.
and a moaning cur kept up a glorious
charivari until all hope of sleep was
abandoned. Neither shoes nor/shewing'
seem to have any efletft on thei4 wretched
animals. The only redress now seems to
lie in legislation limiting *ne number of
cats pro rata or pro cat/ to the human
population. iJyy^fy^

LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE
OF PRINCETON.
That an era of substantial progress and prosperity has set in all
over the province of British Columbia, including, of course, the
Similkameen and Princeton district,
one has only to look around for
proof. With the mileage of railway under construction and that
to be immediately undertaken there
can be: no mistake in predicting vast
expansion in every sphere of industrial production. One has only to
recall the great- strides made in the
provinces east of the Rockies to
reasonably assume that a like condition awaits the finished railways
in this province. The prairies for
wheat and British Columbia for
minerals, the one a necessary concomitant of the other. With these
necessary natural resources in abundance and the transportation for
them at hand, what remains but
development and expansion ? It is
a natural law that trade follows in
the footsteps of cultivation and development and, with the increase
of acreage tilled and the opening
up of mines in Princeton district,
no mau, however pessimistic, could
fail to find reason for present and
future confidence.
Nearly every western town and
district has had its period of discouragement and business depression. Princeton is now emerging
from a long seige of discouragement
and adverse circumstances due to
political jugglery, causing delay in
the construction of the railway.
No discouragement, however, has
changed any intelligent man's views
with regard to the still latent potentialities of the country. Those
who have weathered the "stress of
of life on the frontier for the past
seven or eight years in the Similkameen have an abiding faith in the
future of Princeton. Indeed, the
town is founded on the surest of all
hopes, viz : Centrality surrounded
Ly infinite resource.
Thus, there are assurances of a
genuine character which mould the
town into a city and make it a real
factor in the progress of the'district.
The problems of rounicipal.govern-
ment are sure to overtake this and
every other town. Water works,
thanks to the enterprise of the
Vermilion Forks Co., will shortly
be begun and followed later with
electric light. Sewerage, street paving and    hospital   accommodation
are problems either partly solved or
awaiting solution. It is only by
facing these various problems with
resolute wills and united effort that
successful city- building can be undertaken and carried out to completion.
The hospital, now in its preliminary stage, must be carried on to
a finish. As a means of giving
permanency to a town and adding
to its reputation there are few
things of more value than a hospital properly equipped and conducted. It is the earnest hope of the
board of managers to have the
hospital completed in the early
summer. It will depend largely on
the prompt response of the people
for subscriptions to the hospital
fund when the building will be
opened for the reception of patients.
But in any case the necessity for a
hospital having been generally admitted there is only one thing to do
—build it.
♦      ^ ♦!♦
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is a fact, admitted by some of
the leading Tory press, that mutiny
exists against R. L> Borden, the
Conservative leader. Borden is a
good party man, able, but lacking
that necessary quality, personal
magnetism. Had the member for
Yale-Cariboo the necessary expert
ence he would make an able leader
and thus be iu iine for the premiership.
All's well, at least for another
mouth. Halley's comet will be
nearest the earth about May 10th.
Should the tail of this celestial visitant hit dear old mother earth there
will be something doing. Gas,
scientists say, will do its deadly
work when the contact takes place.
We know some people on whom
gas could not possibly 'fiz.' They
are even unimpressed with a hard
hint to pay their subscriptions to
the Star. Such people could not
possibly be affected by such a volatile, vapid thing as gas.    Oh, no.
Major Megraw, the warrior editor of the Gazette, has hit ' Occult
Science' a deadly blow. He says
'Man was given the five senses for
a full enjoyment of all there is in
this iife and these five are enough
for him.' We should like to know
who made the Major dictator as to
what is good and sufficient for man?
Has he practised the ' Occult.' Did
he ever gaze with that insane stare
at the crystal? Five senses, eh !
Well, the rule in this world is to
get all one can, and if a man wants
more than five senses, let him help
himself. We are astonished at the
Major putting a limit on sense or
senses. !<$v»ji:
; There is no use trying to evade
the question of 'women's rights.'
Better give them all they ask ahd
a little more.   _ _ "byv" „ \

Religion exposes sin ; prayerful devotion conquers it.
Many a man who has failed in business
has made a fortune out of politics.
The difference between a knocker and
a pessimist is that the one lies from force
of habit and the other has not yet familiarised '■'• himself' with the principles of
truth and wisdom.
