Princeton Coal—Clean and best heating.
As a rule bad habits are stronger than good resolutions.
This is the ' railway age' of the Similkameen; see the development to accompany it and invest before high altitudes are reached
in prices—Normal progress of this district is good enough; so called booms are unhealthy and subject to reactionary iaws.

BUSINESS IS GROWING
New  Stores Spring into Life
and a Second Bank
is Opened.
Prospects Good for Busy Seasons-Town
is Advancing and Future
is Bright.
Following are some of the recently
established business occupations in
Princeton, a slight idea, of the expansion in commercial circles being thus
conveyed to distant readers as well as
those in the outlying district:
P. Burns & Co., butchers, meat contractors, wholesale and retail, have acquired the business recently carried on
by Messrs. Summers & Wardle. This
company is so well kryzfwn all over the
west that no introduction is'necessary.
This ^"T>pap.Y ^lag <hops in every center
in B C. Mining is also a strong point in
the P. Burns Co. and the presence of
so much financial strength is an indication of the favor with which .this section
is viewed by capitalists and business
men generally.
The Eastern Townships Bank is almost
rsady to open its doors Jm Princeton in
the building on the northwest corner of
Harold and Bridge streets owned by
Manly & Swanson. Mr. Carmichael,
agent of the bank at Keremeos, is making all arrangements for opening. This
bank is used iargely by J. W. Stewart &
Co., the big railroad contractors. Two
banks in a town the size of Princeton is
very commendatory of its possibilities.
The E.T. is here to stay.
C. Willarson & Co., gents' furnishings,
is the latest sign hung out to tb^gaze of
ihe public. Situated in the Rriuon block,
with a bright and attractive store, there
is nothing more to be desired as a stand.
There is room for a store of this kind
in Princeton and Mr. Willarson may be
considered lucky in starting when he did
as other parties had their business eye on
this town for like purposes. Success to
the new firm.
A. L. White, the furniture and second
hand dealer, is noy foiepared to serve
the public with evervthhjg and anything
from a piano to a Rothes pin. In the
few days that he has had his goods on
sale business has been satisfactory and,
as Mi. White has faith in advertising he
will have that steady growth and increase
so much desired by every business man.
Plans for a new bwnn>ry f^be located
on China crejk, inst wast of Qnowm
Yuen's store, are now in-pfeparation and
work is expected to >pgm shortly. The
Nelson Brewing Co. Bought some eleven
acres from Mrs. Allison on which to erect
a new and large brewery,  business hav
ing outgrown the old premises on Vermilion avenue. Rudolph Gorsulowsky,
the proficient brewer for the Nelson Co.,
is looking forward to a busy season.
Messrs. Fowler, Graham & Johnson
are about to build a large 36-roomed
boarding' house on Vermilion Av., two
lots west from the courthouse. These
gentlemen are recent arrivals from Nelson and, being carpenters, will erect the
building themselves.
PEOPEBLY QUALIFIED HEIBS
ABE WANTED.
The estate of the late Angns McLeod,
now about to be wound up by the sale of
thP^W''1 f rrfrlr—r-Micfal '-rings into question the distribution of the -proceeds
among the lawful heirs and devisees of
the will of deceased. So lar, no properly
established claims have been received by
the executors. Before a settlement cau
be made heirs must give proof of their
idemity and due verification of their
right of inheritance. Messrs. Murchie
and Murdock, executors, will be glad to
receive duly authenticated applications
for participation in the property of the
testator. Supposed beirs are said to live
in Scotland and Manitoba. The estate
will be distributed, having regard only
to those duly entitled and properly verified.
! SMELTER MAY COME-PLACEB
MINING UP BIVEB-
' E. E. Emmons, recently in P inceton,
states that certain smelter promoters at
the coast are looking this way for au
opportunity to establish. He suggests
that as an inducement to building a
smelter more mineral properties should
be developed to the shipping stage and
to do this it will be necessary to bring
capitalist and prospector in touch. In
the event of this being done the question of prices will be readily arranged
where values are proven and a disposition to sell is made manifest. A vast
field still remains to be prospected in
this section and a large number of prospectors may be expected^ here this year
Mr. Emmons has secured a lot of placer
ground in the Tulameen section, which
he will work out on the cofferdam principle, of which he is the pioneer in this
section.   .

Again, Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., has made
good for the Similkameen. The largest
appropriation yet made for this district,
$100,800, is the amount under the head
of Public Works which will be found in
the estimates for 1910. The expenditure
of this large sum must prove a strong
incentive to progress and encourage the
stiuggling, newer sections to renewed"
activity.

MAIL IBEEGULAR FBOM THE
COAST.
The mail has been unusually freaky of
late. .Last Saturday there were no coast
papers. Monday the Vancouver papers
did not show up. Ever since the daily
mail has been established to Princeton
the receipt of newspapers has been most
irregular and unsatisfactory. Some.days
as many as three separate editions arrive
in a bunch, more frequently two. Presuming that the daily papers mail their
editions every day as printed there is no
good reason, why these papers should not
be delivered as regularly as posted. An
efficient postal service should be given as
the people pay for it and expect it. If
this unsatisfactory and uncalled for condition is caused by the incompetence of
some public servant the usual remedy
ought to be applied. Probably the inspector will act.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
' In view of the unlimited supply
of ore and the "existence of coking
coal in this section it is not surprising that reports of smelter projects are heard frequently. It is
the undoubted intention of the
Columbia Coal & Coke Co. to begin
the manufacture of coke as soon as
possible, the North Fork coal possessing all the qualities for a first
class article. Having the ore and
the coking coal the prospects for
two great industries being established in this vicinity are very
bright. It would be difficult to
find ore and coking coal in such'
close relation.and ready juxtaposition as is found here, in any other
part ot tbe world. Dr. Dawson,
the eminent geologist, did not
overdraw mineral conditions here
when he said a dozen years ago
S that unless, geology went altogether astra}* this would prove to
be a great mining district.'
Strenuous efforts are being made
at the coast to secure the location
of the university at or near some of
the cities there. No greater mistake could be made than selecting
a site for such an important institution, involving a large expenditure
of the people's money, in a climate
at once depressing aud therefore
unfit for student life. Star has
emphasized repeatedly the advantages which nature has provided for
a university and its allied school of
mines in Princeton district. Field
demonstration for all kinds of mining, and favorable mineral conditions for • geological research are
at the door of any educational institution that may build here. The
coast climate is cloudy, humid, enervating. For astronomical study
and ordinary observation in connection with university work the coast
climate is not-at all adapted ; here
the atmosphere is clear and dry, and
withal perfectly healthy. Before
assent is given to any choice invitation is given the commissioners
charged with the selection to come
and examine this section.
It is generally believed among
railway men in touch with construction movements that the C.P.
R. will make a beginning this year
on its line over Hope mountains.
As announced in the press some
months ago it is certain that the
C.P.R. intends building from the
main  line  at Ruby creek, crossing
the Fraser river below Hope and
continuing eastwards through Coquihalla Pass down the Coldwater
and Otter creeks, then, over the
surveyed route of the Kettle Valley line to Summerland and Penticton. It is well known that a party
of C.P.R. engineers surveyed this
route two years ago and there is no
doubt the K.V. and C.P.R. are
one. The line of the Kettle Valley road is about seven miles from
Princeton at its nearest point and it
is this fact which makes it of especial interest to this town and immediate district. As is well known
it is a part of the provincial government's comprehensive railway
policy to extend railway facilities
and foster competition. In giving
a bonus to the K. V. line the government will, no doubt, make it one
of the terms to build a spur into
Princeton, thus giving direct communication with the Okanagan and
Nfcafa districts.
Sk.        —
/'Tbe. petition circulated by the
Board of Trade recently for concentrating the postoffice, telephone
office, and the office of inland revenue inspector in a building separate from store or other occupation,
met with a very gratifying response
from the public. The petition also
asks for the appointment of a sub
collector of customs at this point
and tbe erection of a Dominion
public building. The late Liberal
member for Yale-Cariboo favored a
proposition embracing most, if not
all, of those mentioned. If the
government has the interests of the
people in view there will be no reluctance in affording ample room
and facilities .generally for the
prompt and efficient service of the
public.
Quite a flutter of opposition is
being raised to the order of the
federal government closing the lobbies of postoffices on Sundays, thus
preventing access of boxhoiders to
their mail. There is no lobby to
the Princeton P.O. and there is no
access to mail between 12 and i
o'clock any day. It has long been
apparent that the office here needed
modernizing. On principle Star
believes in a Sunday rest day for
man, beast and machine aud if the
open lobby enforces work on any
of these, bang the door and keep it
shut. Nature's laws are the laws
of God, they are inexorable and no
violation of them can be made
without full recompense. Any intelligent driver will say that his
engine, or it may be horse, is all
the better for one day's rest in
seven. How much more must this
be true of man ? A nation will
rapidly degenerate if there is no
rest day on its calendar for the poor
public servant or other employee.
In the east all lobbies are closed on
Sundays but open the whole day to
ten o'clock p.m. for box holders.

PROMINENT BANKER SPEAKS.
Bofore leaving for Toronto last week,
B. F. Walker, president of the Canadian
Bank'of Commerce, who was in Montreal
recently attending the meeting of the
Canadian Bankers'association, said the
outlook for a sound business ahd financial
year had never been better in the Dominion. Being.asked what he thought of
the guarantee system adopted by the
governments of the new provinces in the
west in aiding new railways, Mr. Walker
replied that they would be safe as long
as they confined themselves to assisting
good railways, danger only presenting
itself when wildcat projects came to the
fore for government assistance. He be-1
lieved, however, that the roads at pres-;
■ent aided or about to be assisted by the f
governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan-
were necessary for the development of j
those provinces.

PROMINENT BANKER SPEAKS.
From 4th page.
western country continued to grow during the next five years as it had done in
past,   banking   accommodations    would
not be sufficient to cope with the requirements  of  the business conditions,  Mr.
Walker was asked what he thought about
the contention.    To this the president of
the Bank of Commerce stated that no
doubt the suggestion went even  further,
and he advocated not only additional ex
pansion of banking accommodation, but
additional banks as well.     The  number
of banks, he declared, did not make  any
difference, but the question  arose, would
we be   able   to   borrow   the   necessary
money abroad to keep up with our business requirements?    That was  the question.    However, the country was in- fine
shape, the credit of the Dominion  was
first-class, so with a good crop this year
lie did not apprehend difficulty.
