HOOD OLD CHRISTMAS
Stores   Stocked with Splendid
Xmas Array for Santa
and Friends.
Perfect Weather Presages Joyous Day

Is Lacking.
Following its annual custom the Star
makes special mention of its advertising
patrons who are engaged in the Christmas mid New Year supply tra(lj£WIt is
the hope and ambition of the Star to be
fully abreast of the times and to issue as
good a newspaper as is to he found in any
place the size of Princeton. To this end
it will endeavor to publish a special edition about the time of rail laying here
which will treat of the mineral and other
resources besides giving a concise de
■scription of each industry and business,
the whole making a comprehensive review of the progress and development
of Princetoifdistrict. . Following may be
found some useful Hints for purchasers,
mention being first made 01 the old and
reliable firm cf
Thomas Bros.
A notable improvement in the front of
the   store   building   attracts  the eye on
■entering and, in adding to the appearance it also increases light and sp§ce,
both necessary for the effective display of
goods. These gentlemen have a large
stock    of  general   merchandise   besides
- such goods as the most fastidious housewife or hotel chef requires at this season
<>f the year. Confectionery and all the
toothsome things for parties and teas may
be found   in  variety at this store.    Back
•of all of Thomas  Bros,  business transac
lions stands an honorable record extending  to  the earliest historv of Princeton.
They are  looking forward to the advent
•of the railway and increased population.
D. M. French, or " Tink's "
Princeton Pool and Billiard Parlor is
a favorite resort for followers of the cue.
where one may enjoy a quiet game or
listen to Paderewski or Boloff ky on one
of Edison's "pianos" Cigars, tobacco,
nuts, candy, fiuit, oysters and soft drinks
are to be had at Tink's aud at reasonable
prices.    Have a business talk with him.
J. R. Campbell.
The City Drug Store was recently described in these columns on its removal
to new premises. This store is right up-
to date both in equipment and stock and
everything looks 'spick and span,' Everything for the toiler te, the boudoir.the
parlor, anything for artistic ornamentation or personal use may be obtained in
wide variety at the City Drug Store.
No mere enumeration of the Christmas
goods will suffice, they must be seen to
be appreciated. Call early and make
your purchases.
The A E. Howse Co., limited.
The "Big Store" is carrying a larger
stock of Christmas and holiday goods
this season than ever before. No rea-
sonable taste or fashion but can be satisfied in the large assortment of goods on
view. China and glassware, toys and a
large range of presentation articles are
here in rare profusion. In fancy groceries the stock would do credit to many a
city store. Wearing apparel for all ages
of the great human family and edibles
to satisfy the epicure or gourmand may
be seen on every hand. The store is furnished with every convenience for raijiri
service and comfort of customers, It
will be a delight for the manager and
assistant to attend to your wants.
-Summers & Wardle. •
Butchers, fleshers and fish dealers have
an important part to play during the
festivities of Christmastide. Tbe ^wve
firm have spared no effort to provide
every table with a bountiful Xmas dinner, it only remains with the customer to
make choice and purchase. Turkey, the
'sking of birds," goose, that our ar$asj
tors adored and some of them resembled
beef, beef, rich and tender, baron and
sirloin, all to be had of Summers &
Wardle, the pioneer butchers.- Call and
see ihe display of many palate ticklers.
CHRISTMAS TREE.
i The Christmas Tree and Entertainment
for the children of the district to be held
in Oddfellows Hall on Xmas Eve? beginning at 7 o'clock, is well forward with
necessary arrangements and there is no
doubt of its success. Contributions have
been generous and prompt by the public
generally, some $90 00 having been collected in money and goods. Eatables
ma> be handed in to the committee on
Thursday afteruoon at the hall. Also, it
is hoped that sufficient cups, plafes and
spoons will be brought to meet requirements, The program wiJl be short and
entertaining, the dominant feature being
to make it a children's night. Santa will
have something for all the children, even
the sick and disabled ones who cannot
be present.
ODDFELLOWS HALL.
Officers elect of Princeton Lodge, No.
52, 1. O. O. F., are as follows : Bro. L.
J. Huston, N.G ; Bro. J. O. Coalthard,
V. G ; Bro. H. Cowan, Rec. Secretary ;
Bro. P. Rowlands, Treasurer. Instai|ja|-
tion will take place on the 7th Jan-anfe
at which resident and sojourning Rebi k-
ahs, as well as other guests, will be welcomed. The new quarters to which the
Oddfellows now remove afford spacious
accommodation for the most elaborate
ceremonial Bro. H. Cowan is manager
of the "Oddfellows Hall,'' to whom all
applications for its rental should be sub
mitted.
MINES AND MINING
Coal, One of the Great Staples
of the Similkameen,
is Plentiful.
Rumored Change in Management of
Daly Reduction Co.—North
Fork Coal.
It is reported that M. K. Rodgers it-
likely to become again superintendent of
the Daly Reduction Co. and Yale Mining Co at Hedley. His rating among
mining men is AI and as a citizen he it
public spirited and deservedly oopulai
and esteemed. His furniture has begun
co arrive.
J. Anderson, in charge of a small foice.
is prospecting <~n the coal claims owned
by Great Northern officials. This prop
erty was located by Wi Boyle, two years-
ago, and now, it is understood, the .Stevenson claim is included in the group held
by these same parties. The prospecting
no.w going on is in conformity with tht
law regarding coal licenses.
Considerable interest is taken in the
North Fork' of Granite coal mines, development work on which was abruptly
stopped last summer. It is not known
.what disposition will be made of this-
property it being understood that the
owners are 11 pt unanimous on any proposal and a deadlock is°probable, which
only the key of litigation can open.
C. DeBarro and J. Amberty have been
prospecting on old placer diggings 01;
Granite Creek and have found good paj
dirt.
The mining recorder's office will be
closed on Christmas Day and the following day, the 26th, also on New Years
Day and the 2nd day of January.
The Mines Department at Ottawa has
issued a geological map of Princeton coal
basin and Copper Mountain. It is intended to illustrate 3 report by Charles
Camsell who has during the past three
seasons made extensive surveys and examinations of the mineral deposits ^of
Princeton district.
Development of the 15-foot vein of coal
on Nine Mile Creek has begun with a
drift of 200 feet for determining the thickness and quality of the coal. The work
is being carried on by J. O'Leary for*
himself and Idaho associates. As soon
as transportation is given these owners
have a selected market for every pound
of coal they can produce.
There is plenty of deer in the country
but hunters complain that it has been a
poor season for them as the mild weather
has enticed them to remain in higher
haunts. Christmas mowitch will be
absent in not a few larders.
THE MASQUERADE BALL.
At a general meeting of married men
to promote the masquerade ball to be
given on New Years Eve it was decided
to spare neither pains nor reasonable expense in securing the best music and providing the various etceteras which go to
make a successful ball. From present
indications this ball will be a record
breaker in point of attendance. Everything that can be done to make the guests
of the married people comfortable and
happy is being attended to. Oddfellows
Hall affords ample floor space for a large
concourse of merrymakers, it is up to
ithem to do the rest and make fun and
frolic till tired nature bids them sleep
and dream of-the pleasures of life.*
The husbands of Princeton offer the
following prizes to be awarded by three
judges: Mrs. Schon, Mr. Hunter, Mr.
Cochrane:
1. The belle of the ball, (without mask)
—Pair of white kid gloves, by F. P.
Cook. 2. For the best disguise—Box of
Cad bury's chocolates, by Thomas Bros.
5. For the prettiest ladys' costume—Bottle of perfume, by J. R. Campbell.

COASTING ACCIDENT.
The first serious accident of this sea--,
son to happen on tbe coasting hill: occurred last Friday, when a young son of
W. Allison had his leg broken at the
chigh. It appears the young sufferer was -
new to the course and steered wild, causing his sled to collide with a telephone
pole on Bridge Street. It is a wonder'
tibe poor little fellow was not killed outright as the terrific velocity attained '
is at its highest when the sled is passing
tbe pole. Had the impact been at any
vital point the la'd must surely have been
killed on the spot. It would be too bad
to spoil the children's sport for the sake
of an unsightly telephone pole and the
sooner it is removed, the chances of crippling os killing somebody's darling will
have been immeasurably minimized.
Will someone kindly have' that: pole
removed for the balance of the coasting
season, after which,it could be-replanted
again. Dr. Schon attended the young
patient, 7 years old, and he is now doing
well.
Princeton school is closed for the*_oli-
days, to reopen on Monday, Jan. 4, 1909.
The school is growing steadily, there
being now 28 pupils in regular attendance
—four more than in any previous year.
Several more pupils are expected after
the New Year.
The Star completes another year with
this issue, No. 52.

CHRISTMAS.
' Christmas is the day par excellence a^all the days in the year.
The spirit of friendship and bro-
'•therliness is more in evidence on
that day than any other. It is then
the prodigal son and wayward
daughter turn their loving thoughts,
if not their footsteps, toward the
-old home ; friends estranged now
long to be restored to the pleasant
intercourse of yore ; mutual concessions are made, old scores wiped
out, the hatchet gives place to the
pipe of peace and the true Christmas spirit takes possession of everyone. To prove that these are no
empty and meaningless phrases the
Star will lead the way by asking
forgiveness for any personal wrongs
it may have inflicted or injustice
carelessly done. It will gladly
rectify any substantial grievance it
may have caused, if pointed out, and
make public acknowledgment thereof. Thus, it is hoped, the Star
may become a sort of clearing-house
for the settlement of old social accounts and grievances and thus
'make good' for the peace, unity
and happiness, not only of our own
local constituency, but of the whole
world. This principle is recommended to brethren of the quill,
who, in commenting upon it may
suggest the details of a scheme to
promote social harmony and reconciliation of discordant elements and
outright enemies. Instead of a
yearly clearance it could be made
every month, week or day.
Christmas commemorates the
greatest event of all time. The
ancients looked down the coming
centuries toward it in feverish hope,
the moderns look back to it with
reverence and gratitude. It is the
day on which all dates pivot, from
which all time of Christian peoples
is now reckoned. No other event
in history possesses a shadow of its
vast and far—reaching importance.
Men may try to make light of a
Saviour, cast doubt upon His nativity, assume a bravado and swear
by His name because they cannot
make oath by any greater, thus unconsciously attesting their belief in
God by their very profanity, scoff
at those who strive to follow in His
footsteps, yet He still is the central
Figure of all days and the greatest
living, comforting hope and influence iu the world—substitute some
other for Him and we fall to the
level of the barbarian, who does
not  know   progress,   invention   or
reform.
The Star sends earnest greetings
to all for a very happy Christmas
and many more of them to follow.

.   NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Hon. Frank Oliver has made
a statement regarding a large increase in American investors in B.
C. iii 1909 and his intention to
assist the province in every way
possible. This does not look like
the dire revenge predicted by the
late member at his banquet. Mr.
Ross  also   said  it  was  hard for a.
Scotchman to forgive.   Hon. Mr. Civil and nining Engineer
Oliver is as much Scotch as Duncan,
but he is a statesman and broad-
minded.

1 point of commencement
every individual, celebrates on the
25th of December is a point in history from which the religious,social,
literary and art world of our planet
changed its axis. From this time
human history takes a new departure. The human race since the
first Christmas has been gradually
rising to a higher plane of civilization. This upward direction of
humanity focalizes in the Person
who, by the most wonderful life
ever lived brought about this
change; was born on Christmas day.
It is not enough for anyone to criti-.
"ize the method by which Jesu?
Christ was declared to have come
into the world. We ought to go a
step farther, if we could do so, and
suggest a method which would have
beeu clear of every difficulty and
which yet would have obviously
covered the whole ground and accomplished the one supreme design.
We can honor Him best by acknowledging His divine character
and following His example. All
Christians rejoice at this season.
Every handshake means " Rejoice
with me, for unto us is born this
day a Saviour which is Christ the
L,ord." It is only by realizing this
conviction that our Christmas feasts,
and our family gatherings have
their true meaning. I^et our Christmas feast be, first, one of Christ.
This is the root of all our joy.
Our hearts will be filled with peace.
We will not be slow to express our
good will; we will forgive, as we
hope to be forgiven, and Christmas
will make us all better men aud
women. In this hope and spirit
Mr. and Mrs. Conn join in wishing
you all a very merry Christmas.
Yours sincerely,

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
J. H. Kennedy, C.E., was in town this
week on -'professional visit.
Eben Vans has laid down a solid foundation for a residence on his lot at the
corner of Tapton Av. and Bridge Street.
It looks ominous for young men to put
up dwellings but it also shows good judgment and an appreciation of the economic aspect of living.
Xmas gifts to suit every taste as well as
every purse. We shall be pleased to
have you inspect our tables. You will
find what you want right there. Come
early and come often, we're always glad
to see you—The Howse Co.
The Oddfellows have taken a two-year
lease of the hall owned bv W.Thomas
and have errtered into occupation. The
hall-will be rented by the Oddfellows for
all legitimate purposes.
A marriage at the Presbyterian manse
will be celebrated today by Rev. Mr.
Conn.
Attention is directed to the change in
the Owl Skating Rink ad. to be found on
the 3rd page. The ad. appearing on the
2nd page was printed before the change
was brought in and is of no effect. The
ice is in splendid condition and is well
patronized by old and young. Pie prizes,
hockey and other features have made
the rink a favorite resort and produced
some good skaters.
A telephone exchange for Princeton !
Well, well. Another instance of locking
the stable door, &c. It is reported that
the superintendent has given notire of a
change after New Year. In all proba
bility the exchange will be given a central location and where it will be easy of
access at all times.
The checker club is contemplating a
midwinter tournament.
The Sunday School social next Wednesday night' is well advanced with the
informal program which will be provided for mind and body. A review of
the work done by the school, its aims
and its influence would make interesting
matter and possibly enlarge the roll. It
is the ambition of the Sunday School \
workers to collect a good library and
make it available for public use.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce sends
its Christmas greetings to patrons of the
institution on a pretty card bearing the
names of all the staff of the Princeton
branch. This bank does not countenance
frenzied or high finance so its-standing
is as firm as that of Gibraltar. Its net
profits for the year ending 30th November last amounted to $1,627,532.67.
Fresh cranberries, for the Turkey, at
the Big Store.
Harry Swan was in town last week and
will probably tender on some coutracts
to be let shortly.
Dr. McDonald, the returning officer for
Yale Cariboo, was  to have  held a final
recount of the ballots at Kamloops'last
Thursday but owing to the absence oi six
boxes the recount has been adjourned for
another week.
E/W. Groves, P.I. S., has been laying
out grade of Fenchurch Av. up the hill
to the beautiful residential plateau belonging to the V. F. M. Co.
A wireless from Welldo states that a
flock of spring birds are there and will
probably remain all winter. Welldo has

warm 'Italic' skies that both man and
bird love to linger long in its salubrious

j-fMany of the truly great men of Canada
are self made, with only a common school
education.     How(§ye^,,   they ' graduated
with highest honors iri the university of
life and are now railroad   kings, steel
magnates   and   barons   of finance.   Although they never entered a college door
as students yet they command the highest honor degrees and affix several letters
to their names.   Such is the philosophy
«of life and snch is the power of money.
Not a few of the world's benefactors
have warmed their bare feet frosty mornings in a Canadian barnyard where the
- cows have lain overnight.
The undertaker is the most welcome
visitant for those who are waiting for the
close-fisted skinflint to shuffle off. The
person  who dies hardest is the money-
• lover—he cannot feel that he has a real
friend on earth, much less in heaven.
The love of money is surely the root of
• all evil.
Knocking is the pessimist's hobby, the
loafer's ambition, the conceited man's
way of announcing his superiority, the
despondent man's weapon and a silly
person's habit.    Boost, don't knock.
Better to throw bouquets th_n to hand
out sour 'lemons.'
The person who has not enough public
spirit to contribute to public enterprises
should emigrate.

Those in close  touch  with copper affairs-
