DAY DULY OBSERVED
Dominion Day made Glorious
Fair Women and
Brave Men.
by
Ball Game, Races, Athletic Sports, and
the Band Make Celebration
Gleeful Time.
Weather, crowd, sports, the band, and
a spirit of loyal enthusiasm all conduced
to a very successful Dominion Day celebration. Citizens may, on the whole,
feel a certain pride in being able to draw
a" crowd together and present-'such in
ducements in tbe program and in the
town itself as has from year to year
attracted a large, intelligent and patriotic
assemblage. Nothing occurred to mat
the general good, feeling of the crowd
to which the harmonizing influence of
the band largely contributed. In fact
the celebration would have beeu tame
indeed but for the martial and patriotic
band music wafted to the hills and echoed
back to the surging throngs of merrymakers.. Citizens of Princeton heartily
thank visitors for their attendance and
gladsome social qualities and hope to see
them all again a year hence.
Among a large contingent from Hedley were Major A. Megraw, F. M Gillespie, the Misses Smith, H. A. .Hincks and
C. Sproule ; from Keremeos, Mr. and
Mrs. J. A. Brown, Mrs. Miss and Maurice Daly.-JMiss Corrigan yind J. S Cooper. Granite creek, Coalmont, Tulameen,

soul and foot stirring. It is hoped the
committee will do it some more..

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Mrs. Coles, sister of Nurse Thomas,
the efheient matron of Princeton general
hospital, has arrived from England and
will visit relatives here. She will meet
her husband also' coming from England
around the Horn and eventually may seij
tie in these parts. She is delighted with
our climate and scenery, seeing much of
the latter from a seat in her brother's
high power, speedy antt' elegant automobile. j?P
Mrs. Hewat and children of Fairvffi®
areguests of Mrs. Hall and were pfesiem
at the grand celebration. Their attachment for Princeton since removing has
increased-and they long for the green
[hmfi'the gentle zephyrs and the social
endearments for which Princeton stands
unrivalled.      _£_.]
W. Davis and family have gone to Nelson on a visit during the slack time in
plastering business and will return when
this branch of the building trade booms
in the near future.
LrFeck McSwain, traveller, raconteur,
n&rtaster, mind reader, printer, &c, is
■iffeDorted to be on passage over Hope
mountains and may be expected to drop
into Princeton at any moment. It is
about two years since he was here but
memories of him are still as fresh and
aromatic as _.e spices of Araby. Welcome, brother, welcome, and what is the
latest thou bast seen afi_ heard in thy
pilgrimages across the; vasty deep and
up the dizzy peaks/ of this old orb?
[Since the foregoing^was put in cold type
Peck has arrived. Citizens, have cour
age!—J. P. M.]
J. Snowden and party of trail builders
returned, from their labors yesterday.
Thaj^Ml was constructed to within a few
m#£s.from Steamboat camp. The country is verv rugged and it would be so
expensive to complete to Steamboat that
possibly it would not pay in the present
undeveloped, and eni might say, uncertain, condition of thay much talked of
camp. The trail will, however, be useful for prospectors and in construction of
the interprovincial trunk road.
IMPROVE THE HORSE
Dominion Government will Aid
Propagation of Better
Horse Breeds.
Not Enough of High Class Horses to
Meet Demand—Siniilkameen
is Suitable,
During recent years many appeals
have been made to the Hon. Sydney
Fishery Minister of Agriculture, by horsemen anxious to brihg.about an improvement in the quality of our light horse
stock and who are of opinion that for
this purpose an infusion of thoroughbred
blood is essential. Recognizing the force1
pf these appeals as well as the,fmportance
of the subject. Mr.'Fisher has_decided to
grant assistance under certain specified
conditions to persons maintaining thoro-
bred stallions for service in the various
provinces. -jp;i*ai
. In deciding upon this step the Minister
has been largely influenced by .the fact
that while stallions of other recognized
breeds when in capable hands..are as a
rule fairly profitable, this is seldom the
case with regard to the thoroughbreds,
the advantage of breeding to horses of
this class being unfortunately not fnllj
realized by tbe present generation of
Canadian farmers.
• The lac_ in our light horses of the
quality derivable only from the infusion
of thoroughbred blood is the subject of
adverse comment by all European horse
men who visit the Dominion with a view
to investigating its possibilities as a field
for the purchase of horses whether for
military purposes or for ordinary saddle
or harness use. In this connection it
should be remembered that while horses
for the last named, or in fact, for any of
these purposes, may well be bred from
sires other than thoroughbred, it is of
importance that on the side of the dam
there should, in order to produce the
best results, be, in such cases, a strong
admixture of thoroughbred blood.
The coditions under which assistance
will be given are as follows:
1. All horses on account/of which ai
is  given by   the  Department   must ty.
registered   in  thei Thoroughbred   Stud
Book   of  the   Canadian   National   Live
Stock Records.
2. Horses should be of good size, quality and conformation and shall be free
from all hereditary unsoundness; these
conditions to be insured by submission
annually to a thorough, carefull examination either at the hands- of the Veterinary Director General or such other members ot the veterinary staff of the Department, or other persons as the Minister may from time to time appoint for
this purpose.
3. Horses so approved shall be duly
and properly advertised to stand for,
service of mares, under the ordinary and
general conditions usual in the districts
in which they are to be kept, at an an-
naual service fee (except in the case of
thoroughbred mares) of not more ttiaji
$10 to insure, such service fee to become
due and payable only when mares prov$?
to be in foal.
4. Any   person, firm  or   corporation'
owning or controlling any thoroughbred
stallion ini: regard to which all   of the
conditions above set forth shall have "been
duly   and properly   fulfilled, shall,   on'
production of satisfactory evidence therei*
of and of the fact that a reasoable' num-'
berof mares, other than. thoroughbreo?
mares, have been served  during the sea-'
son, be entitled to receive at the close "of.
each   such season the  sum   of  $250.00
from the funds of the Live Stock Branch.:
If, in the event of a horse dying or be-'
coming incapacitated for service during
the season, an approved-substitute: is* immediately  placed in  the   same  district,'
the ____!5__- may, after due consideration
of  the circumstances, authorize the payment of the subsidy above mentioned.
5. The  necessary forms  will be  furn-;
ished on  application to  the   Veterniary'
Director  General and  Live Stock  Com-'
missioner,   Department  of  Agriculture,
Ottawa.

FIGHTING BUSH FIBES.
The provincial government is
convinced that the most vigorous
action is necessary to protect the
timber resources of this province
and in furtherance of this policy no
permits will be issued during the
summer. Following is a synopsis
of a circular recently issued :
No matter how efficient the patrol system may be it is inevitable that fires will
occur. The Government desires to make
it very clear that the duty of the owners
of timber and operating lumbermen is tc
protect their own property. The Ontario
Government not only compels every
stumpage owner to pay for fighting fir^s,
but it throws on him also the costs of,
patrolling his limits. Washington and
Idaho lumbermen have organized their,
own voluntary associations for fire fighting purposes, and assess themselves 2 or
2Y cents per acre each season. In
shouldering the entire cost of fire patrol
throughout British Columbia this summer, the Government is, therefor, doing
more than other governments, and it'
should be clearly understood by all concerned that, except in circumstances detailed below, the cost of fighting fire to
protect their own property must be borne
by the private parties concerned. Whtn
wardens have to hire men to fight fire on
private property the Government expects
that the owners should pay the cost, as
indicated below. The attention of tim
ber owners, lumbermen and other persons
owning property or employing labor in or
near timbered districts is, therefor, drawn
to the following regulations:—
1. Bush fires originating in or near any
work conducted by the owner, his agents
contractors, or employees, must be fought
at the expense of such owner, agent or
contractor. The Government will lend
the assistance of its wardens gratis.
2. A proportion of the ccst, not exceeding in any case, one half the actual
expense of fighting a bush fire that can
be proved not to have originated in the
manner mentioned iu (1), will be borne
this summer by the Government, as a
temporary measure of meeting existing
emergencies.
In this matter of forest protection, the
Government is acting on the common
sense principle that it is far better to prevent fire than to flight fire, and that the.
big expenditure should be on the patrol
work. But at the same time the Government feels it very necessary to draw the
attention of operators to the fact that, as
a class, owners of timber have devoted
less money and trouble to fire protection
than the owners of any other kind of
valuable property; and that gross care
lessness by workmen in the use of fiie
and the use of poor out of date spark
arresters are far too often the causes of
bad forest fires. The Government calls
upon the operators of the Province to
help the cause of forest protection by insisting that the modern fire preventing
appliances be used properly by their
workmen,
vantages for a smelter as Princeton
and vicinity do. Best coking coal
at Coalmont, 13 miles distant, and
abundance of high grade sub-bituminous coal in the Princeton basin,
together with a wide variety of ores
all around are certainly enough to
induce capital to erect a smelter
in this section.
Some people have no sense ot the
rights of others. Recently a man
fenced off his neighbor's field and
turned his animals in without ever
asking permission. Another man
or men cut timber along a road, although the law forbids it. Gall and
greed are developed in some to an
unbearable extent and produce trou-.
ble for their owners.
Probably   no other  place on the
contineut presents such unique ad-
