THE BOARD OF TRADE
First Meeting in Many Moons
was Well Attended by
Its Members.
" Resurgam " Seem Appropriate Motto
now for Board—New Members
are Enrolled.
The first Board of Trade meeting in
the past five months was held Monday
evening with a large number of members present, the. President in the chair.
No communications nor minutes were
read. The meeting was called to consider moie particularly a requisition from
the executive ot the Dominion Day celebration fcr assistance in covering their
deficit of $55. The Board expressed willingness to liquidate the amount, the
secretary being instructed to notify all
members in arrears that the money might
be handed over. The meeting adjourned
to meet again next Monday night.
■ Following new members were elected :
H. H. Avery, R. S. Ross, J. D. Lunisd=n
and A. J. Marlow,' who was appointed
permanent secretary of the Board.
varieties, finally selecting those which
proved to be hardy, sweet, firm, medium
large and excellent in flavor, in short, a
berry fit for the' gods to munch. In the
time the quart of these berries presented
to the 'devil' were on the table, at every
second-beat of the clock something said
"ke-chug," "ke-chug," in our throat and
we knew a couple of berries had dropped
into that basket which Nature has provided for the whole human family.
Thanks, Mrs. Hagerman.
ON DOWN GRADE.
Tom Hughes and Nen Huston had a
little 'divarsion* Sunday by the upsetting
of a load of hay which thev were bringing down the'grade on the Ashnola road.
The loss of a few patches of cuticle and
some black and blue spots are about the
extent of the damages. They have no
desire to enter the acrobatic arena from
the top of a load of hay overlooking a
steep bank 100 feet down. " Keep in^de
middle ob de road" is good advice which
can be applied to many phases of life as
well as to its incidents'.

ANNUAL SCHOOL MEETING.
At the annual school meeting last Saturday there was a good attendance of
parents and others interested in education. J. Oswald Coulthard was elected
school trustee and secretary for the ensu-
■ ing term of three years and Ernest Waterman was elected auditor for the school
year. The sum of $600 was voted to meet
current expenses and part salary of teacher. The secretary reported fcr the Board
a credit balance of $14.26 for year.   The
■ secretary was instructed to write the
Department of Education re purchase of
additional playground; also to express
appreciation of this meeting for the free
school books provided by the local government. The necessity for a fence to
enclose grounds was also urged.
TAKES "DOUGH" TO PRINT.
The Star office building is receiving a
fresh coat of paint by contractor D. O.
Day. It may be remarked by some
jocular friend" that a little more paint of
a bright color would look well in the
Star itself. It takes money to buy paint
of any kind and if all the Star's delinquent subscribers would pay up some encouragement would be held out to print
it in a beautiful crimson red.   Savee !
SEES GRAND OPPORTUNITIES.
G. E. Torgensen, C.E., P.L.S., of Vancouver, was in town last Sunday, coming
down from Otter Valley, where he has
been surveying land for several parties.
It is his first visit to Princeton and he is
so much impressed with its beauty and
the possibilities of its mineral resources
that he may locate permanently here.
In any case he will reach out for business
in this section.
BERRIES DISAPPEARED.
. Some delicious strawberries were laid
on the sanctum table of this great news
distributor by Mrs. Hagerman, grown on
her One-Mile ranch. They were "bred"
by Mr.  Hagerman,  who crossed several
FIRE ON GRANITE CREEK.
The fire last week by which the dwelling house of W. H. Holmes, Granite
Creek, was destroyed is thought to have
originated from the stovepipe. There
was little help to fight the fire, Mr.
Holmes being away at the time. Most of
the contents were saved but the house
was a total loss. As soon as the result of
the fire was learned a subscriotiou list
was started by F. P. Cook which netted
in a little while the neat sum of $ioj in
cash, 3000 feet of lumber, and $10 in
goods, gratitude for all which Mr.
Holmes acknowledges as follows :
"Editor Star—Sir: Please allow me
space in your columns to thank my
friends for their kind sympathy in my
misfortune. I accept their gifts in the
spirit they were given.
Yours very truly,
W. H. H01.MES,
Granite Creek, July 11.
Tulameen, July 8.—This town was well
represented at Princeton on July ist and
2nd and everybody had the time of their
lives.  ,
Barclay Bonthrone was in town Thursday and Saturday looking over his coal
property.    Everything is in good shape.
C. F. Law has a car load of machinery
at Coutlee for placer mining purposes.
Work on the trail to Boulder and
Elliott Creeks is expected to be started
shortly.
• Judge Murphy spent Dominion Day at
Tulameen fishing on Otter1;-; Lake. He
made the biggest catch of the season.
Some of the Tulameen bunch got home
fo-sleep, others slept on Saw Mill Flat.
The bush fires around Tulameen have
been very bad this week.
R. O. Blondin of Bellinghatn, Wash.,
arrived on Friday. He intends starting
to placer on his old ground that he staked
22 years ago on Slate Creek. At that
time he could not make it pay as everything was so very hard to pack in, but
the times have changed and he expect
to make a profit now.
Another lead has been struck on the
Similkameen Mining and Smelting Co's
property on Bear Creek. The ore looks
good.
L. C. Barnes, Coutenay Mountain, has
been on the sick list for a week.

germ propagation. Dysentery and'kindred complaints are frequently caused by
impure water. The. health official urges
the cleaning • of wells now as a preservative of that good health with which
Princeton is blessed and has so long enjoyed. There are wells here which may
never have been cleaned. Clean them
all out and probably save a doctor's bill
or maybe funeral expenses.
WHERE'S THE TENNIS NET.
The old mythical cow that has done
so much mischief and damage in the
world has at last appeared in Princeton.
Her latest prank is to swallow the lawn
tennis net, ratline, brass eyelets, rivets
and knots, all at one big gulp. A man
heard her doing it, at least he says so.
This old cow with the crumpled horn
that jumped over the moon, that kicked
over the pail that drowned the milkmaid,
that knocked down the lamp that burnt
up Chicago, that stole the net ought to
be put in pound and pounded till she
coughs up. As luck would have it the
tennis club got another net in town and
the exciting games of late have suffered
little interruption on account of 'bossy.'
The club will take in its clothes every
night hereafter.
MAKING MORE ROOM.
P. Swanson has begun work on the
large addition to the Great Northern
Hotel, which, when completed will give
much needed accommodation for his increasing business. Excavation for the
wine cellar is about done, and the
foundation, is in the preparatory stages.
This annex will measure 30x80, two
storeys high and will contain the bar
and lunch counter among other necessary rcom spaces for a good and comfortable hotel. Mr. Swanson has had a long
experience in hotel management, which
enables him to foresee advantages to be
gained in catering to the public taste and
comfort. The short order buffet will be
an innovation in town and is sure to be
well patronized.
Mrs. Olding, her sister, Mrs. Renton,
and Masters Edwin and Norman Olding,
all near relatives of Mrs. Hugh Hunter,
are her guests, having arrived from Ross-
land on Saturday last.

CLEAN WELLS OUT.
Caution is advised by Mr. Hunter,
government agent and official of the Provincial Board of Health, regarding the
cleanliness of wells during the hot weather now so prevalent. Wells should be
perfectly clean at all times of the year
but especially now when decomposition'
is quicker and water more susceptible of
IT LOOKS THAT WAY.
Charlie Willarson, cash registrar for
the A. E. Howse Co., left for the coast
last Thursday. Ostensibly he went holidaying ; really, it is believed he went on
a far more serious and import2nt mission.
The movements, too, of a bunch of belles
travelling in the same coach, lends color
or, as the lawyers term it, "reasonable
suspicion" that Mr. Willarson is going
to reform and lead a better life—a married life, if the reader will. Congratulations later.
J. O. Coulthard has bought from Geo.
Aldous, Miss Bevans and J. Budd the
west half of lot 8, block 3, and lot 9,.

the old Tulameen hotel site. The price
was $2500, cash. Mr. Coulthard will
erect a residence on a portion of ground.

BRYAN, THE MAN OF THE HOUR.
The nominations for President of
the United  States  by the two governing parties  have resulted in the
choice  of   Taft,   Republican,   and
Bryan,    Democrat.      Between  the
two  men  there  are  no great outstanding national issues separating
them.    Policies  of political parties
do not differ  much  in any country
upori   the' internal   affairs of state.
It is in regard to foreign  relations
or  some  great  upheaval  affecting
social conditions  that  the lines of
party are made  clear  and distinct.
Both ncninees   would  administer
the  affairs   of state   with  zeal and
patriotism.     It is, therefore,  very
largely,  a  question   of personality
as  between  the    two    candidates,
Taft and Bryan.    The Star has no
ambition to influence votes one way
or the other, if it could, and it may
be told to mind its own business for
a iittle  gratuitous  advice, but it is
built that way  and cannot help it.
Taft is only the  shadow of Roosevelt.    We have  learned to " pass "
when it comes to shadows; it is the
real thing, not  a substitute, which
men require in a governor or president.    As   Roosevelt   II.   Mr. Taft
would have neither originality nor
individuality, completely overshadowed by his great  predecessor and
political wet nurse.    Bryan, on the
other hand, is without political godfather, insofar,   alone,   lofty, towering, the greatest American outside
of the  retiring president,  unblemished  and remarkakbly able.    He
is a great moral  force  in example
and  precept.     Who could  not  be
proud of him  as a • member of the
great human  family ?    Mossbacks,
hidebound  partizans,   little Republicans and  antiquated placehunters
will oppose him but the broadmind-
ed liberal citizen will welcome him
as a panacea for the ills begotten by
lack   of   change.     Unique in personality, character   and history, he
is easily  the most attractive figure
today of all the uncrowned and unseated rulers  in the world.    If he
is not elected he should be.
for its suppression in some countries. New York state has recently
enacted a law which does away
with race track betting and an agitation on the same line is being conducted in other states and countries.
As to the right or wrong of betting
or gambling the greatest of all lawgivers settled the point forever in
his : Thou shalt not covet, &c, and
covetousness is simply a longing
desire to get your neighbor's "long
green" or anything else he may
possess, for nothing. Gambling or
betting being wrong in principle
no discussion or argument in their
favor can stand. It would be vastly
in the interests of clean sport and
its enjoyableness if betting were
ruled off the field of sport altogether. It tends to commercialize
sport. The moment money enters
into it the true spirit ofsport departs. Prizes and purses are proper incentives to competition, but
betting or gambling on the field by
babbling 'tin horns' and horns that
are not tin debases the game and
creates undue excitement amounting to nervousness in some players.
As one player put it in a recent ball
game dispute : " I must protect the
people who are betting on me and
our team." Meaning that they
must win by 'hook'or by crook' and
as is often the case, get a divvy of
the spoils. Sport of that kind'is
not clean and spectators who patronize athletics for the pleasure in
them become disgusted. If betting
or gambling is a necessary evil it
must not be allowed to contaminate
our sports but kept in its proper
place under surveillance of those
appointed to regulate it. Let there
be a clean field of sport, nothing
but sport. The Trumpet has done
a good Work in directing attention
to the subject in its issue of 7th.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
July 15 1908
SHORT AND PITHY.
Follow fashion and pay heavy tribute
-to folly.
The hoary head is a crown of glory,
-&C, but what about the good old pate
that is so smooth that a skeeter cannot
-stand upright on it to present his bill.
The glory of a people is in being able
to point to some good men in the nation.
How many good are iu the Similkameen?
A game won by unfair means robs
sport of real enjoyment and crowns the
victors with thistles instead of laurel.
The young man who plays games with
ihe determination to be strictly fair is
raising the standard of athletics higher
and higher besides getting most satisfaction from it.
Cheating is the result of a depraved
mind or heart. It is the parent of theft
and elder brother of lying. Don't trifle
with it, lest the hands or tongue bring
disgrace or disrespect.
The man who sees no good in others is
no good.
The sensitive person is also self-j
conceited.
Beware of the suspicious person—what j
one accuses others of is apt to be the very
thing he is himself guilty of.
When a woman says her husband is j
■out she probably means that he is 'all in.'

Len Huston has his shapely dwelling
roofed and will soon be ready to moye

have many imitators.

of Marriage Licenses for this district.
This will be welcome news to those who
were laboring under the impression that
they would have to send outside for
theirs and thus be subject to hitches and
delays, even robbery of the mail sack.
Now they can make up their minds to
many any time, get the license five minutes after, bring the  parson on the way
back, hit the stage in the morning on a
honevmoon trip round the world aad no
one will be any wiser of the event save
the parties more immediately interested.
Mr. Hunter will do quite a business in
.this line in the immediate present if indications count at all.

[As they might have been written.]
Here lies a man who seemed to think
His troubles he could drown in drink.
(He succeeded.)
Here lies a chap quite free from strife,
Who dared to contradict his wife.
(She's married again )
A hypnotist below doth lie
Who looked a tiger in the eye.
• . (And the tiger won.)
Dear friends, here lie the bones of one
Who always carried a deadly gun.
(The other man drew first.)
Below a man quite safely lies'
Who jumped a chap just twice his size.
((Take warning.) <
Kind frinds,stop here and please take note J
Here lies the fellow who rocked the boat.
(Companions were rescued.)
