The home friend and cook's delight: Princeton coal.
It is manly to be independent; mulish to be stubborn, s/
The Similkameen valley is so varied in resources that it cannot fail to suit all classes of men: Mineral land for prospectors and
miners; farming, fruitgrowing and grazing land for the agriculturist; timber land for the mill man; homes for the million:
Vol. XI. No. 40.
PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1910.
$2 a Year in Advance
COAL IS OUR STAflE
Large Area of   Coal Ground
Which will Afford Fuel
For Ages. .
Changing Name of Company—Coal is
of Best Domestic duality-
Good Supply.
Changing the name of the Vermilion
Forks'Mining and Development Co. to
that of the Princeton Coal and Land Co.
call's for some passing remarks. Under the former name the company has
been in existence in Princeton foi about
eleven years, the latter name having been
only recently acquired by legislative act.
The Princeton Coal and Land Co., L'd,
with head office in London, England,
is managed   in  Princeton   by E. Water-
,man, agent, other officials of the company being E. S Neave, secretary, 15
Gt. St. Helens St., London, Eng., and A.
Hickling,    managing-director,     Norfolk
• Lodge, Streatham, Loudon, England.
Market Will Widen.
The coal mine is now shipping steadily
and everything points to a steady increase in output. When it is considered
that the consuming area for Princeton
coal is limited, owing to the unfinished
state of the V.,V. & E., it is, under the
circumstances, producing all that is demanded of it. A visit to the mine well
repays anyone not familiar with coal
miuing, for then one gets an idea of the
great labor and expense in opening up
and developing a new mine. Here one
sees the wonderfnl provision made in
nature's storehouse for the comfort and
necessities of humanity. Millions of
t ms of energy deposited here awaiting
the sturdy miner's muscle to bring to
surface and distribute wherever the needs
of man demand.
Bight-Feet of Coal in Pace.
Under the courteous guidance of Robert
Nayioiv-w-ho came here_from Nanaimo to
install the lighting plant, electric signals
and telephone, and whose general knowledge of electricity, steam pumps, engines, boilers, etc., makes him generally
useful around a coal mining plant, a
party of ladies and gentlemen were recently initiated into the mysteries of the
science of coal mining. Mr. Naylor,
with infinite pain, and kindness, explained many things, from the power of
heat in baking bannocks down to the
latest, discoveries in the realms of hydrostatics. The dynamo room, in utter
darkness as one entered was transformed
into a flood of dazzling light; electric
signals reaching from the mine to the
engine and hoist room in charge of Mr.
Gordon, a born engineer, careful and
competent;   through the telephone the
party were introduced to E. B Hall who
as engineer-in-chief receives reports and
directs the operation of the mine.
James Holden is superintendent of the
mine, recently succeeding Chas. Graham,
who is now superintendent oi ine Mia-
dlesboro coal mines, employing 350 men.
Mr. Holden comes from Hosmer. where
he gave the fullest measure of satisfac
tion.
The Princeton Coal and,. Land Co.,
has a very valuable coal property, which
virtually has illimitable possibilities in
production. An eight foot seam of pure
coal is now presented in the face of the
workings and there are other strata underlying. The present and future of
Princeton largely depends upon the
coal mining in and around Princeton.
At present the mine is working one full
shift and as the winter draws on a large
demand may be expected, together wilh
an increased payroll.
THE GOSPEL OF PEACE.
Rev. G. R. B. Kinney, Methodist, conducted service in Oddfellows' hall Sunday night, a large audience giving close
attention to an earnest, soul appealing
sermon. His sincerity and honest pur
pose to do good are apparent, and these
with self elimination in the pulpit are
most tefreshing and appreciated by the
church going public. His monthlv visits
here will, no doubt, be looked forward
to with interest, resulting in spiritual
growth, unity where discord lurked and
having those fruits which tend to harmony and happiness. To such preaching
no one, be he pagan or theosophist, socialist or scientist, could possibly take
any reasonable objection. Mr.' Kinney
stated that he did not come here to create
any discord, that there were good and
bad ministers, and that he was pleased
to see so many present. Outspoken,
without afiectation or love of pelf, sincere, Mr. Kinney is sure to wear well
here, in consonance with his record at
c_her places.
PORTLAND CEMENT WORKS.
C. R. Briggs, secretary-treasurer of the
British Columbia Portland Cement Co.,

THE BLARE OF THE j SUNSET/
The Saturday Sunset editor is a
rantin', tearin' example of those
afflicted with that dread disease
cacoethes scribendi. Every time
he says anything about the V.,V.
& E. he seems to get an attack of
writers' colic, cramp or worms,
something that just seems to turn
him sour toward everyone and
everything that crosses his narrow
little trail. It is too bad that a
paper which is mechanically nice
and tasty should be marred from
week to week with the mental apparitions of a dreamer. Instead of
reason, consistency of argument and
the respect that is due to all honestly expressed opinion, the Sunset
man employs raillery, bombast and
ethics which savor • of the barnyard. A newspaper that opens its
vials of abuse upon all who do not
express opinions agreeing with it
•cannot command .respect nor carry,
any weight.with intelligent $gr§otiSj
If there were even gleams of humor to offset the mad frothings of
this prolific, yet quixotic scribbler,
there would be some feyef to the
stress of our plaint ; but humor
there is none and wit is absent.
Star has no desire for notoriety,
does not want its fair name trailed
in the dust of the front page of
Saturday Sunset and unless left
quite alone in the future it will resort, not to the sinuosities of legal
^entanglements in long drawn trial,
[but to the short and swift arbitra-
Iment afforded by coffee and pistols
'straight.
THE CATJSE, THE EFFECT.
Because the Hedley Gazette and
the Star supported the broad guage
railway policy of Premier McBride
during last election campaign and
opposed John Oliver and the Saturday Sunset's narrow guage
scheme of connecting up the Similkameen with the coast, the latter
never loses an opportunity to show
its petty pique. One of its wide
columns in the issue of Sept. 17th
was filled with stuff wholly irrelevant of the question raised by the
Star, which suggested that pressure
be brought to bear on the Dominion government through the board
•of trade to urge upon Mr. Hill the
early completion of the V.,V. & E.
Everyone knows that Mr. Hill is
within the bounds of the letter of
his charter. But the spirit of it
is in consonance with the general
jpublic opinion   that   the   railway
would be built along ordinary business lines,   having once begun it
would  be speedily  completed and
brought   into   earning   condition.
But  Mr. Hill does not build tbe
V.,V. & E.   on ordinary business
lines ; he builds a while then rests
a while,    builds   some more then
takes a long breath, builds another
stretch  then  stops  from sheer exhaustion.    Now Mr. Hiil has other
railway projects in  Canada and he
will  require*.'legislation  to   build
them.    Until  he  shows a disposition  to complete  tbe  V..V. & E.
continuously and  speedily the government would be well advised by
the various boards of trade to withhold any further 'legislation  in. his
behalf.    This, in effect, is what the
Star first suggested and this is what
the Sunset endeavored to ridicule.
If, as it alleges, it is  the  friend of
the Similkameen  why does  it not
put aside  that  horrible  growl and
nasty personalities when the interests of this  district  are at  stake ?
Star  ventures   to   suggest  to our
contemporary  to  cease  being  destructive   and  a  mere  faultfinder;
rather be constructive, extolling the
resources of the beautiful Similkameen  and  praising  her editors for
their untiring boost and labor in the
uplift of humanity generally.
M,. NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Teddy of the hippopotami and
rhino in Africa is now turning his
guns ou big game in the United
States. Recently he "poured some
hot shot into that hydra headed
monster, the trust. His little bullets hardly grazed the thick skin of
the enormous beast. However,
he will probably use a revolutionary bomb on the brute during the
hunt and thus gain tbe plaudits of
the people. If Star may be allowed, it would suggest that Teddy
make his next shot at the great
Americ&n pig-—the grafter,   j
Sir Wilfrid Laurier is again at
the capital after his trip to the west
covering some ten thousand miles.
The question is being asked : what
will be the political effect of his
tri" ? So far as his winning back
the lost and strayed Liberals is concerned it is doubtful if one vote has
been reclaimed. B. C. has been
sadly neglected in the matter of
appropriations that eastern provinces might be pandered to and
kept in line. Princeton will be irrevocably Conservative unless justice is done.
With the completion of the waterworks Princeton will be right up
to date in improvements and it will
be incumbent on the citizens to
patronize this priceless boon of good
and pure water. .The waterworks
are an asset of the! town which cannot fail as an inducement to people
to reside here.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
September 28, 1910.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
The reason why people succeed who
mind their own business is because there
is so little competition-in their line.
The smile of some is merely the veneer
used to conceal envy.
No man has a great mission who slights
little ministries.
You cannot live for people without hying with them.
. Lessons learned in the cradle last to
the grave.
The person who neither recedes nor
progresses in religion is a spiritual
corpse.
Cast no pearls before swine nor waste
time in trying to make a mule appreciate
reason or common sense.
