Orangemen Celebrate Battle of
Boyne and Triumph of
King William.
Speechmaking,  Sports,   Parade and
Ball—Hedley Brethren Join
in 'Doings.'
The celebration of the Battle of the
Boyne was duly observed by the Orangemen of Princeton and Hedley assembln g
here and forming procession to the
grounds ou Fenchurch Av., where the
oration wasoeTivered by Rev. Bro.
Kinney. C. L. Cummings, W.M., occupied the chair and alter well chosen,
introductory remarks of welcome, was
followed by the speakers, Bro. Jamieson,
W.M. of Hedley lodge, who, iu a neat
speech extolled Orangeism, and Rev.
±(ro. Kinney, who delivered a rousing
address, replete with sound doctrine aud
good advice. The rev. gentleman is a
powerful speaker and impresses an audience with his sincerity. He is popular
with all Protestants and has attaim d
fame as having been first to conquer Mt.
Robson, one of the higher peaks of the
Canadian Rockies.
The Orangemen of Princeton are to be
commended for their zeal in having
brought together so many of the brethren and for the success of their first celebration. With four secret ^societies
as a oeginning Princeton is destined to
become a head centre for their annual
celebrations, picnics, &c. Next year it
is hoped that suitable grounds will be
available for Orange and all other demonstrations.
In the principal sports events Hedley
won in the tug-of war ; Vic Ryder won
in the long and high jumps; Mrs. Mc-
Corkle in the married women's race and
R Jameson beat putting; the shot. The
children's races created much amusement.
The ball in the evening was well patronized and the music provided py the
Princeton orchestra tnucn appreciated.
'Big Bill Martin as director of ceremonies makes good.
A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS.
] Hans Lof had the misfortune to lose
a hand by explosion while at work on
the railway grade west of Princeton last
Wednesday. He returned too soon to a
charge that he supposed had missed fire.
Hans had only two more days' work to
finish his contract when the accident
occurred. Being a hard working, industrious and likable man much sympathy
is expressed for him in this very serious
accident. He was taken to Hedley hospital and attended by "Dr. McEwen.
Andy Gray, in the employ of Madden
& Hankinson, railway contractors, had
his leg broken last week by a log rolling
on him.
Jas. McKay, while bulldozing rocks on
the railway the other day had his arm
badly lacerated. Dr. Mc^Caffery attended
both he and Mr. Gray and sent them to
Hedley hospital.
I Maurice Daly, of Keremeos, while riding a runaway horse bareback rounding
up others was thrown by the stumbling
animal which fell on him, breaking his
forearm near the wrist. The accident
occurred last Sunday and was attended
by Dr. McCaffery, who reduced the fracture, and the patient is now doing as
well as can be expected.
THE PRINGLE COMPANY.
The P.ingle Stock Company will open
a short season at the I.O.O.F. Hall on
Thursday, (tomorrow) July 14th. This
excellent organization is the oldest stock
company in Canada, having played all

t rn provinces. Thev have just finished a
•■ix week's engagement in Victoria and
are playing the mountain towns during
the summer. The Pringle Co. are plav-
ing at popular prices. Their repertoire
conMsts of the latest uptodate comedies
and dramas. There are no long waits
between the acts, as they will introduce
high class vaudevile, thus making tr e
performance continuous. The openirg
play will be 'The Convict's Daughter.'

NEW HOTEL OPENED.
The opening of the Similkameen
hotel last Monday makes another important addition to the public houses of
Princeton. It is situated on Vermilion
Av., just west of the court housKand as
that street is one of the main arteries of
town the position will always be eligible
and convenient. The house is plastered
and the floors deadened, so that transmission of sound from one apartment to
another will practically be overcome.
Every comfort of guests was studied in
the construction and that this has beeu
attained an inspection will certainly
prove. The rooms are first class and the
table will be supplied with the best the
market affords. A commercial sample
room is provided. Splendid light is
furnished throughout.

Fires have been devastating forests in
Michigan and other states, also in Canada.
It would be a great misfortune to have
our forests destroyed and possibly other
property, if not life, along with them.
Every precaution is being taken to prevent fires and anybody starting one will
be severely dealt with.
Mrs. Olding and sister, mother and
aunt of Mrs. HTHmnter, are visiting her-

Fire Chief Campbell was called' out
about 1 a.m. Sunday morning to put out
a blazing lamp in the Clay building on
Bridge street. Some person carelessly
left the lamp turned too high and it was
only the promptness of the chief bursting the door in that aveited an explosion
and probable fire.
At the meeting held last Friday evening to consider a^iroposition for the ac
quisition of athletic grounds and race
track the following committee was appointed to act, and report* at a future
meeting: W. Garrison, Chairman ; Bert

MINES AND MINING.
Princeton is admittedly a fine location
for a smelter. Coking coal and ore in
abundance. Star will gladly answer any
correspondents regarding the establishment of this industry.
Billy Knight came down from Whip-
saw Monday and as instrumentalist was
present at the Orange ball. He reports
work still in progress on the Lucky Pair
with favorable indications of approach
to ledge. Knight & Day have done a
lot of really hard development work on
their property and are deserving the reward they are so perseveringly in search
of.
Ben Baker, Billy Fearless and L. McMullen are at Whipsaw, doing assessment
work on their claims. Ben has uncovered a ledge, but the others seem to have
encountered deeper wash.
Jack Crowley and Tuck French were
down recently from Whipsaw and report
good s"howings on Sam Spencer's claim
where development work is in progress.

money. Pending a full exposure

no good can come of bitter personal
attacks in the press. The law of
Canada is sufficient in cases of this
kind. It is strange how easily some
people can be buncoed, for Wireless
employed all the well known inflation methods of fraudulent schemes.
A GOOD ADVERTISEMENT.
One of the many beneficial re-
salts derived from the celebration
of Dominion Day as recently carried out in Princeton, is observed in
the good advertising which the
town and district received. Strangers, who had'only heard of Princeton before, now came to see and
prove the things which they had
heard and read. So favorable an
impression had been carried away
by visitors that it is not improbable
investments or commercial relations
may follow. From sister towns in
the valley it was expected that a
strong delegation would come and
help demonstrate the day, but it
..remained for our American cousins
and brothers to not only enthuse
and demonstrate but boost also.
The Oroville Gazette, represented
by Editor Dallam at the celebration,
gave two and a half big columns of
matter relating to Princeton and
tbe sports. ' It says : 'There is no
town along the B.C. border, on that
side of the line, that has richer resources and brighter promise of
making a city of great magnitude
than Princeton. It is surrounded
by and built upon a vast coal field.
It is not a coking coal, but a most
excellent fuel for domestic use. Besides the coal there are vast deposits
of high grade copper ore in the
immediate vicinity. Men of means
are beginning to realize the importance of Princeton as a field for investment. Several American companies are gaining a foothold, and
henceforward development with accompanying results will be much
more rapid. From its naturally
advantageous location and the extensive and exceptionally rich mineral resources existing so near at
hand, to a disinterested observer it
would; seem that nothing can prevent Princeton from forging to the
front and becoming one of the most
important cities along the Great
Northern road.' The foregoing is
of great value, coming from one
who has no pecuniary interest in
the country. As an advertisement,
by those who intelligently appreciate and practise advertising, the
Gazette has well repaid the trouble
and expense of the celebration.
The Nicola Valley board of trade
stirred up Telephone Supt. Stevens
and now Merritt will have an exchange and lineman. Board of
trade resolutions are great correctives and there should be more of
them where public grievances and
nuisances are permitted by the government.

SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology- geography, chemistry, mineralogy,

districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the

afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
