Our coal unexcelled for heating and cleanliness.
Do not try to have the last word.
Dr. Dawson, eminent geologist, explored Princeton District and said that if geology did not go altogether astray this country would
prove to be very rich in minerals: That prediction is being verified every day—Capital, smelters, coke ovens, cement works coming.

THE WATER SYSTEM
Pipes Now Being Laid Down
to Business Centre of
the Town.
Electric Light is Also to be Installed
Princeton then in Limelight
of Progress.
The Princeton Land and Coal Co., has
recently received the wooden pipe for
the waterworks to be installed this fall.
Trenches for the reception of the pipe
are now being dug along the streets and
the reservoirs will be completed with the
least possible delay.
To reap the full benefit derivable from
a system of waterworks it is necessary
for a town to provide the necessary hose
and other apparatus required for fire protection. With the pressure which the
system will afford and an efficient fire
brigade an ordinary fire will have very
little chance to spread. It remains with
the citizens to take the necessary steps
to procure hose, etc., and to reorganize
the fire brigade.
It is understood that electric light is
also to be furnished the town by the
above company in terms of their charter.
With the two necessary articles, light and
water, on tap, Princeton will te fully
uptodate and abreast of much older
towns.
LONG ATJTOMOBLILE TRIP.
Party Saw Peach Belt,  now   Strike
Great Mineral Zone.
Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Howse. Miss Ruby
and chauffeur Charley, theiy son and
daughte , arrived Sunday.m their automobile en tour of the Similkameen,
Okanagan, Spallumcheen, Kamloops and
Nirola districts, covering about 600 miles
when they reach home today. Mr.
Howse was a delegate to the Irrigation
Convention at Kamloops, proceeding
from there across country to Enderby.
Vernon, Kelowna, Summerland, Penticton, Keremeos, Hedley and Princeton.
Mr. Howse describes the development of
the Okanagan as marvellous. Residences
that would grace any city dot that district all over and are set in orchard plots
producing frnit in great profusion and
which Mr. Howse believes outrivals anything he saw in Southern Italy. The
Baptist college at Summerland is a stately
structure and its capacity is taxed with
students. Beautiful churches and good
school houses are observed, all evidences
of wealth, good taste and culture.
The Interprovincial Boad.
The whole trip was most enjoyable, interesting    and    instructive,   the   scenic
beauty of rugged nature far transcending
many of the Old World touring routes.
With the completion of the irjtepprovin-
cial trunk road by the provincial govern-
ment Mr. Howse thinks that the natural
grandeur of mountain, lake, river and
valley which this route will open up to
view of automobile tourists will prove to
be a big asset and one of the best advertisements the country could have. *The
roads, on the whole, are in good condition for auto traffic, the very sane suggestion being made by Mrs. Howse that
finger boards be placed at the junction
of roads, thus saving travellers any doubt
or perplexity as to the proper route to
be taken, j The car used on the trip is
the Rnssell, the only machine made altogether in Canada, manufactured by the
Canada Cycle & M__or_Co.. who also
make the Daimler-Knight Silent Engine.
The Russell is geared to run 75 nines an
hour, a speed that gives one the sensa
tion of flying and eliminating the proverbial high spot from consideration at
all. Such a speed would, of course; be
somewhat lyigafe making the turn at
Death Curve or piercing Hellgate. At a
speed of over 30 miles an hour Mr.
Howse, sr., and the ladies prefer good,
old fashioned walkiug, eren if the road is
dusty. The average speed ovei mountainous roads and maintained throughout the
present 600-mile run was 15 miles per
hour Not the slightest breakdown occurred on the trip, although between
Summerland and Penttcton"the chauffeur
had his skill tested bringing the car
across country where there is no road
and the hills are steep, a Tecoid wllll'ir
other manufacturers may well envy.
VISIT OF EARLY PIONEER.
Hon. E. Dewdney arrived in town last
Thursday from Victoria coming via Spokane. He reports general prosperity in
the province and an abundant harvest
now partially lngatheredy/Having large
timber, sawmill and i^A interests in this
section he is, quite naturally, much concerned in the progress and development
of the district. He has always shown
his goodwill toward Princeton in furthering any project of public benefit.
As a pioneer of this country he has its
history in detail and probably no man
living has a more intimate knowledge of
its resources and general features. A
gentleman of the old school Governor
Dewdney links the sterling pioneers of
forty years ago with the present generation, fiis reminiscences covering that
period with the varied phases 'of frontier
life. A host of friends will wish him
many long years of active life yet to
come.
J. A. Turner, road superintendent, was
in town this week securing information
re the route of the interprovincial trunk
road the final location of which must
soon be made. Mr. Turner has a large
district to cover and is a very busy official, serving the government faithfully
aud giving most general satisfaction.

'ACROSS THE BAR.'
Death of Old   Cariboo Miner After
\y Protracted Illness.
Last Thursday night at 12 o'clock one
of the oldest of the pioneers of the province in the person of Angus Lamont
took his last long ride over the Great
Divide. Deceased had been ill for about
two years, gradually declining until he
literally fell asleep, apparently without
mental or physical pain. His end was
peace, for so he lived, without an enemy.
An honest and just citizen, good neighbor, his money and his hand were always
ready to help. Born at Eramosa, Ont.,
some 72 years ago, he came to British
Columbia as a young man, when the gold
fever was at its height. He went to Cariboo in the early sixties mingling in the
great stampede of goldhunters which
was then taking place,  finally, after a

IMPORTANT INVENTION.
Charles Howse,is the inventor of a device for econmizing power in driving
automobiles and has applied for the patent. From a rough description of it
a vast improvement is effected in driving
mechanism, simplifying movement and
reducing wasti energy to a minimum.
Experts have ftroarounced the invention
practicable and rully up to the claims of
the inventor. Mr. Howse will introduce
his patent into various conntries from
which it is very probable he will add
fortune to fame and be enabled to further
pursue' mining and mechanical research
at McGill University.
A PROLIFIC GARDEN.
Maplehurst, the home of Mr. aud Mrs.
Hugh Hunter, just outside of the suburbs of Princeton, is an inviting and picturesque place at this time of the year.
Inviting, because there is an abounding
wealth of luscious fruit which one is always welcome to sample; and picturesque owing to the banks of flowers and
fruit shrubbery which surround the
mansion. Maplehurst is at its best this
time of the year, for now the roseate
apple, big berry and currants galore
are bending limbs with their weight, also
corn and pumpkin, squash and citron,
vine and stalk, all proclaim the adaptability of soil and climate for garden products. But it is in Irish spuds that soil
energy is so apparent ; a dozen big potatoes being the average to a stalk. Mr.
and Mrs. Hunter are generous hosts, delighting to show appreciative visitors
around and always cheering a sick room
with ever refulgent flowers. Maplehurst
takes its name from a beautiful row of
maples along the front of the estate.
RAILWAY  CONTRACTOR  HERE.
Pat Welch, of the firm of Foley,
Welch & Stewart, the big railway contractors, was iu town Wednesday of last
week in connection with the contract
now about completed between here and
Tulameen. He expects to have the grading completed within schedule time, 1st
October. As to further construction beyond the present end of the grade near
Tulameen Mr. Welch had nothing to say.
He thinks, however, that railway con-
struction in general will be slackened off
in the States as a result of restrictive
legislation recently made operative in
the American republic. The conclusion
of Mr. Welch's contract necessitated the
reduction of the laboring force. He did
not know when tracklaying would be
started.

NEW LIQUOR LICENSE ACT.
Any law or movement tending to
mitigate  the  evils  of intoxicating
drink and  drunkenness  must have
the  approval    and   endorsation of
every right' thinking  person.    No
man who entertains  high ideals of
morality or  common respectability
and'who  has  any  regard  for his
fellow  creatures  would  resist any
.honest or conscientious effort to stay
the wreck and ruin caused by strong
drink.    As to the method of reform
of our liquor laws aud  the removal
of enticements  and  social customs
leading  up  to  the  drinking habit
there will always  be  differences of
opinion according to  the  drinking
or   non-drinking   tastes  of   those
expressing judgment on the question.    It is assumed, of course, that
no one is hypocritical enough to say
•one thing and act another.
•  Of the necessity of drastic regulations  regarding the  liquor business  one  has  only  to look at the
prison roll or visit the police courts.
Judges and juries  and  the public
generally are  aware  of the 'awful
examples' every community or town
affords  by  reason  of   the  baneful
.-effects of whiskey drinking.    Railroad companies object to its use by
employees,   and  positions  of trust
in governments and banks can only
be held by sober persons.    The Act
now  in  force prohibits  any  hotel
keeper from selling liquor to a dipsomaniac,  or  to  a man  under the
visible influence of it, to any minor
or Indian, to any man who  wastes
his wages in drink to  the injury of
his health, respect  or detriment of
his  family, to  any vagrant, tramp
,  or prostitute.    A clause forbids the
sale of liquor  to  any chauffeur on
duty,   this    being   prompted,   no
doubt, by  the number of accidents
due to   drunken  drivers  of automobiles.    No woman can be served
with liquor in a bar, and no gambling is to be carried on or slot machines used on . hotel premises.    If
a husband drinks  to  the injury of
his wife and family she may go
confidentially or secretly to a con-
able or   chief of police who must
warn   hotelkeepers  not  to  supply
him with liquor  under heavy penalties.     Formerly    three    licenses
were  granted  in  a town with 500
population  but  now three licenses
cannot be obtained until there are
a  1000,  but  after it  has  reached
one thousand  white adult males a
.fourth   license   may   be   granted.
a district of less than 500 people
was $75 ; under this Act it will be
$125. The superintendent of police will have absolute power to
suspend  or  cancel a license at any
time.
The foregoing resume of tbe Act
would indicate a desire on the part
of the government to. curtail the
evils of strong drink. It remains
to be seen whether constables and
others charged with the enforcement
of the law will perform their duties
unreservedly and without fear or
favor. At least a fair trial should
be given the Act before any measure of the ultra-temperance people is brought into action.
The new Liquor Act now in force
since August 1st  is good and has a
wholesome tendency  in regulating
the liquor business.    That the mantrap  saloon    has  been  practically
eliminated will  afford   much relief
to anxious' mothers who have 'wandering  boys,'   besides ridding  the
country of a malignant type of pest
spots in which many forms of vice
had  root.     But  wherever a bar is
found  and  the  treating system in
vogue    there   will  certainly  be  a
fnll    crop    of   concomitant   evils.
Under  the  influence  of  vivacious
company  and   exhilarating   drink
over indulgence is easy and money
loses all value, home and dear ones
are  forgotten,   the  mind  rendered
impervious    to   good  impressions,
self respect departs, these and much
more germinate  and are fostered at
the bar.    No  wonder most parents
have a dread of them and the treating practice.
No  law  made by imperfect man
can effectually   deal with the moral
reform of   the  confirmed inebriate 1
Saving,   permanent  reformation in I
him can   only  be (accomplished by
that subtle something within which
destroys the appetite.    Some call it
will power, strong mindedness, self
control,   environment—we   believe
it to be  nothing short  of the spirit
