TUNNEL AT WHIPSAW
Lucky Pair Shows well in Silver-Lead Carbonates
Near Ledge.
Coal Seam at Last Reached on the
United Empire—Supplies to
North Fork.
Knight & Day are hard at work on the
Lncky Pair, Whipsaw Camp, and have
made splendid progress since Christmas,
at which time they were in 35 teet and
are now at the 117 foot post. R. Fitzgerald was at Whipsaw recently in the
interests of outside parties and saw the
Lucky Pair tunnel, which he describes
as a fine piece of work, and is built to
afford ample accommodation for all
working purposes. The face of the tunnel is now close to the lead, unless the
usual indications fail, and the owners
think that in another ten feet they will
have cut into the vein. Considerable
carbonates containing lead and silver
have been passed, the exposure now
tending toward more solid and regular
stratification. The seepage of water has
begun and the washed face presents a
very pretty appearance glistening with
cubes of galena. As soon as the lead i
•truck Knigh & Day will take a hoi id
which they certainly have earned.
The United Empire Co. have at last
reached the coal seam which they have
been tunnelling for during tbe past few
months. The coal is handily located and
can be brought to the track for loading
railway cars, by gravity. It is said to
be the intention of the company to begin
shipping as soon as possible and will require a spur to connect with tbe V.,V. &
E. before long.
G. Chataway has incorporated bis min
ing interests in Highland Valley into a
company with 500,000 shares of the 0ar
value of $1 per. Butte and Detrolt^capi-
tal is behind the enterprise.
Tbe Columbia Coal & Coke Co. has
packers at work delivering supplies to
the North Fork coal mine, where development work will be . carried on this
summer and the. mine put in shape for
shipping wheU the railway reaches Welldo. Manager Fraser will pnsh the work
of connecting tbe mine with tbe railway,
and a lively summer is predicted around
old Granite Creek.
A LIVE AGENT.
Eckhardt Company has One—Troupe
here Tonight—See Them.
Col. J. E. Caven, at one time manager
of the Kansas Daily Times and more
recently editor and manager of the Denver Evening Times was in Princeton last
week as tbe  press representative of the
splendid Eckhardt theatrical company
that goes to the I.O.O.F. Hall for two
nights, commencing tonight, March 30th.
The Col. is an old typo and in a visit tp
the Star he proved his ability to 'stick
type' by setting a thousand ems in quick
time. It was the first time he had stood
up to a case in fifteen years, yet his work
was perfect. The Col. is 75 years old,
has been in two big wars and is now en
gaged in tbe combat of life as advance
agent for the Eckhardt theatrical company. The Col. is made of good 'leather'
and in spite of his age is as'nippy'as
they make them nowadays. His company is first class and ought to be largely
patronized.
SEAL ESTATE SALES.
Transactions Wanted for Publication
—Business Increasing.
Any transaction in real estate, farm
lands or mining property is respectfully
asked to be handed in to Star for publication so that outside investors may see
and act accordingly—invest.
Groffman & Rose have sold to Martin

first class restaurant on the lots west of
the post office.
he ranch owned by the late Angus
McLeod has been .sold by the executors,

Wright.
■ Avery & Avery put through a deal last
Saturday in which F. J. Finucane sold to
Wm. Britton Lot 1, Block 8.
Gordon Murdock has purchased the
property recently owned by T. King on
Kenley Av.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Rufus Tree, brother of Mrs. L. Huston,
arrived last week on a visit, going from
here to the prairie provinces, thence
home in Dakota. He has been at Los
Angeles, Cal., ou a health and pleasure
trip and is favorably impressed with
Princeton and its future prospects.
J. H. Kennedy, chief of construction
on the V.,V. & E , was in town recently
in connection with the work between
here and Otter Flat. It is reported that
a bridge wili be taken out of the line
and Mr. Kennedy is here to consult
about it.
Thos. Niven, of Vancouver, was in
town recently on a bnsiness visit.
W. G. Murray, Vancouver, was in town
last week and was surprised to see the
evidences of prosperity and progress
since his last visit. He is now an itinerant real estate broker and reports Vancouver realty still a-booming. All his
people are removing from Nicola to Vancouver.
A knock is as good as a boost from the

Wide Tires Act Not Popular—Eckhardt Theatrical Troupe
Play Tonight.
Angus Lamont, one of the oldest and
most esteemed pioneers of this section,
has not been in good health lately and is
now under medical advice. A host of
friends from old Cariboo to the coast will
wish him restored health and yet long
years to come.
Sheriff Stevenson of Cariboo, brother
of our own Col. Robert, is taking a holiday at the coast after many years service
in the wild north.
A. C. Wells of Chilliwack, dairyman
and stockbreeder, is dangerously ill.
. W. C. McDougall is recovering nicely
from his serious accident of a month ago
in which he was badly shaken up and
compelled to take to bed. Many friends
will be glad to see him around again
with his usual nimbleness.
Board of trade meets next Monday
night at 8 sharp in the court house.
Broomfield & • Garrison have been
awarded the contract for carrying the
mail from tbe station to the postoffice.

importance. Regarding a separate building for postoffice, &c, the Inspector said
he saw no reason why Princeton should
not have public buildings, in view of its
present and future importance.
It is hinted that a lacrpsse_club is to
be organized this spring and devotees of
the roaring game are invited to assist in
any way possible.
Luke Gibson left recently for the coast

E. E. Emmons, of Vancouver, is in
town on mining business.
See the Eckhardt Theatrical Co. at the
I.O.O.F. Hall, this Wednesday night and
enjoy a delightful and refreshing performance. The Boundary and Kootenay
papers speak in high praise of this Company. If you want to forget trouble and
have a good, hearty laugh, come to the
play.
A daily service will be inaugurated on.
the Nicola branch of <the C.P.R. after
April 1st.
It is claimed by those who use the
roads with wagons that there is no necessity for the enforcement of the Wide
Tires Act iu this district. The roads are
generally on a rocTs.V'foundation and the
need of wide tires is not so pressing as
on the ordinary dirt turnpike, besides,
this country is in the dry belt and therefore its roads are not subject to injurious
effects of rains.
See the Eckhardt's and spend a happy
time you will not forget.
HOSPITAL MEETING.
Good Attendance, and Subscriptions
are Encouraging.
The meeting Monday night to consider
I the advisability of establishing a hospital in Princeton was well, attended and
the sentiment of it was favorable toward
such an institution. J. D. Lumsden was
chairman and W. C. Brown was elected
secretary. The chairman having explained the origin of the hospital movement and the necessity for this institution, read letters from Dr. Young, Provincial -Secretary, aud . Mr. Shatford,
M.P.P., promising their assistance in
obtaining a grant of $2,500 from the government. *"~—s
The following resolution was introduced ' and. carried unanimously: ' That
this meeting, duly called by public notice
is in favor of a hospital being established
in Princeton, the cost of which not to
exceed $5000; that subscriptions for
raising $1000 be received from citizens
and residents of Princeton and district;
that assistance be invited'from philanthropic men of wealth iu this or any
country.' ,-r--?*r
In tbe discussion of the resolution it
was stated that $1000 would be required
by subscription, which with the site valued at $1500 would secure an equal
amount from the government, viz: $2500,
or a total of $5000 invested in building
and grounds.' It is hoped that some
generous wealthy friend will contribute
the equipment necessary in the operation
of the hospital.
The meeting appointed a board of
managers consisting of seven members,
including three trustees to be elected by
the board, with power to solicit subscriptions and build and equip the hospital.
The board was also given power to increase its number to ten at any time. In
selecting members of the board only
those present or consenting were chosen, as follows: Messrs. Waterman,
Lumsden, Marlow, Graham, Willarson,
Fraser and Wright. The board will be
elected annually.
The amount subscribed at the meeting,
$340, represents some fifteen names and
is very encouraging for the success ot the
project.
A vote of thanks, accompanied by
cheers, was tendered the Vermilion Forks
Co., through Mr. Waterman, lor their
generous donation of a site fog the hospital^A vote 01 thanks to the chairman
ended the meeting, and everyone felt,
that a good work had been accomplished
in thus providing for the care of sick
and afflicted humanity.

NOTjES AND COMMENTS.
It will be very satisfactory to all
Canadians having a national spirit
and breathing the air of ihdepen-
defriW'which comes of reserve
strength and ability to note the
dignified firmness with which the
Dominion government has! withstood the threatened tariff war of
Uncle'Sam. Big as the nation is
it is ill becoming to attempt to force
a smaller country into a deal,tha%
would unjustly favor the larger.
Canada asks no favors from the
United States, simply a-square deaU
No self respecting Canadian will
bend the knee.to any^. country that
will not trade on equal terms. Canada buys $20>etooo',ooo worth from
the United otates yearl)-, double
the amount! Bought from Canada
by the U.S. Yet a section of the
American politicians are) clamoring
for higher duties on.'Canadian goods
imported into that' country. Glad
to have our trade but do not want
to reciprocate. Apply that hoggish
principle to individual dealingsjn
any town and it will be foundMfitl-
workable. Retaliation* is»1rre onl>"
cure for those who would''hog' it
in Xowns,or,between nations,.,,,.
in such •spectfie terms as 'Love al"
men,' 'Do unto others as you would
have them do to you,' &c. The
essence of free trade is friendship.
Its spirit is in" harmony with the
idea to do away with war and all
that engenders it.
.jjj-ermany saw the folly of at-
tempU'ngato fioerce Canada by means
of a discriminative tariff. The
government of Sir "Wilfrid Laurier
returned the cofnpliment by imposing an additional duty or surtax on
German-imports. .The recent action
6fa.the German governmejife irf'low-^
ering the tariff le'tfierP'iag'ainst this
country showsJSat'only by humiliating experience can some peoples
aud nations be taught the lesson of
reciprocal fair play iu business, or
trade. Little Canada brought'the
aggressive German  down  oft:' his
00 .1..   »       .'    • •'fui;-;;.'
high tariff wall by a simple do^e pi
his own medicine. And any;,na-
tion that will not trade ■ with us on
honorable and fair terms must be
treated similarly.
It is worth repeating that in
Princeton district there is every-
thingvfor the cheap and expeditious
treatment of minerals : Coking coal,
water power and the fluxings are
here in abundauce, which, with the
wide variety of ores t'oabe*found,
makes certain the profitable operation of smelteBs.>Vt4k.smelt£t established, say at the forks of the rivers, would net require to haul its
coke, njore than , intgen miles and
ore could be obtained within a cou-
pjfe o£guiles, or up to Copper mountain, ten miles distant. It is not
possible anywhere in any country
to find ore and coke in such close
proximity to each other. Here,
then, are surely inducements enough
to warrant building a smelter and
capital invested in this industry
would be certain of a very profitable return.

A more excellent way of settling
and preventing international friction arising from high tariffs is the
adoption of universal free trade.
How to bring about this happy consummation has given Star some
considerable thought and anxiety.
So far it stands alone in its advocacy of so great a stride toward-
universal peace and disarmament
of the nations. But the doctrine
of universal peace and free trade is

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
I will never presume, because I am a.
man; I will never despair, because I
have a God.—Spurgeon.
Knockers are the product of ignorance,
vanity and jealousy.   Boost, donH knock.
Be sure that the person who is thoroughly unpopular' and disliked has not
the social qualities nor the brains to be
anything but a bore.
We all like to be praised, but it is a
. dangerous thing to do to the lightheaded
and giddy minded.
If you open the door to a little vice,
bigger ones will squeeze in.
There are times and circumstances
when 'yes' or 'no' from a person will indicate worth of character more than ten
thousand words of evasive answer; ■
True friendship is the golden coin that
brightens with the using.
According to your version of the story
no, other one can - be right. It is better
not "to form -judgment until the other
side is heard.
To some love is intoxicating and turns
their heads into silly simperings and
ill-mannered behavior.
The silent man' may be overlooked
now, he will get a hearing later.
