CHRISTMAS CHEER
Stores   Well  Supplied   With
Uptodate  Stocks   of
Xmas Goods.
Superb Weather, Good Sleighing and
Winter Sports—Joyous Season
and Prosperity.
The recurring Christmas season, with
its attendant joys and good cheer, inspires all to generous deeds and little
kindnesses, and to help promote that
peace and good will on which happiness
alone can be founded. Thanks and'good
wishes go a long wav toward lessening
the jars and jolts to which life is subject.
It is in a spirit of thankfulness that Star
extends to ail its patrons genuine gratitude for their continued custom and support Following the general habit of
newspapers to acknowledge the cordial
business relations existing between them
and advertisers who specialize somewhat
f >r the Ch istmas trade Star presents
Inief write up of the mercautile houses,
beginning n alphabetical older. To all
i iiizfiisa very happy Christinas:
P. Burns & Co.
This firm name is familiar to consumers of meat and the food products all over
the west. From abbatoir and cold storage plants immense quantities of beef,
p>rk, muttou. poultry and fish are distributed everywhere to the retail shops.
This company preserves and prepares
meat in its various edible forms and to
s ilisfy the tastes of the human family
The Princeton branch of this great firm
is managed by J. Gellatly, ever obliging
and capable, and who has on sale a large
stock of Christmas meats, etc.
Sid S. Bettman.
Mr. Bettman has only recently opened
his jewelry, optical and watch repairing
business, yet in that short time he has
been favored with a large share of patronage. He has special qualifications as
optician and anyone consulting him will
have the benefit of his practical experi
ience and scientific treatment. Mr. Bettman expects to make Princeton his permanent home, and in due time will carry
a large stock of goods required in the
trade.
F. P. Cook.
In the early pioneer days, when gold
digging was the only industry in the
country, Mr. Cook conducted one general store in Granite Creek, now he has
three. o:ie each at Granite, Coalmont and
Princeton, the last named being man-
agr-d by P Russell, who has by courteous
treatment and fair dealing built up a
large and increasing trade. Mr. Cook is
keeping pace with the evolution 'if time,
his enterprise finding scope in the news
paper field and in a large store building
at Coalmont. Call and inspect his Christmas stock.
Len Huston.
That there is demand for a cigar, book
and news stand is amply demonstrated
by the increasing stock and partronage
which Mr. Huston has. Tobaccos, con
fectionerv, fruit, daily and weekly newspapers, photographic views, books and
magazines appeal to Christmas buyers,
whether for their own use oi as a gift to
friend or relative, near or far away.
Christmas numbers of illustrated papers
and local photographic views are handy
remembrances for sending away. See the
goo Is and make your purchases early
A. E. Howse Co., Ld.
Departmental stores are a great convenience for shoppers and a distinct advantage to the town possessing one. N<>
more need to send to tbe big departmental stores in the ea-. for food, furniture;
wearing apparel and the countless number of things required by citizens. A
glance at the betutiful and artistic display of eatables and wearables behind
the large plate glass front of the A. E.
Howse Co's building will convince one
lie is in touch with the latest and most
uptodate that the genius of man can produce. Clothing for all in metropolitan
styles and guaranteed to fit, groceries
fresh from the fictories and the grower,
and an array of most tempting Christmas
goods are found here in great profusion.
See the goods and be convinced.
L. T. Joudry.

been tn business here for three or four
years, ard at Christmas he has always
made a specially of fine silverware, glassware and jewelry suitable for presentations and ordinary home use. In his
new location on Vermilion avenue he
has ample room for display of his fine
stock. An inspection ot his goods will
repay anyone lockingforseasonablegifts.
Princeton Drug & Book Store.
Christmas goods in great variety and
nicely displayed will attract the attention
of customers of the Princeton Drug &
Book Store. Fancy articles aue observed
in striking array Perfumes, confectionery, cigars, views, books, writing material, toys, Christmas cards, all these and
much more will appeal to the purchaser
who is bent on making gifts to a friend
or sweetheait. The Princeton Drug &
Book Store is an emporium of expanding trade, anil under the new management of Geo. G. Lyall has won an honorable place among tbe business institutions of the town. Go and see the goods
and you are not at all likely to be disappointed in any purchase >on may make.
Thomas  Bros.
This firm'name is familiar to every one
in the Similkameen, and they enjoy a
reputation for reliability which holds customers   and   creates   mutual  good will.

chairs, buffets, dressers, etc., any of
which wonld bean appropriate and seasonable gift, are shown in generous display. In the window a choice of useful
articles may be made, and no oue could
-egret purchase of any of these for wifey
or intended. Manager Heron impresses
customers with a fairness and honesty
that is convincing. If he says that an
article is good, it is so. In making your
shopping rounds for Christmas purchases
you should see White's furniture store.
It will pay yon.
PAN-AMERICAN  MINSTRELSY.
Next Monday night, 23rd inst., at the
Princeton opera house, Buckner's Colored
Male Octette will present a program of
unparalleled musical and humorous entertainment. Old negro plantation songs
full of pathos and spirit, southeru dancing and pastimes reproduced with the
vivacity characteristic of the native negro, instrumental music with vocal accompaniment that charms, the whole being a refined and classy diversion which
is certain to give pleasure. This com
pany is under contract with J. Cosgrove,
the aame as the English Bell Ringers,
recently here, and only the best is staged.
Don't miss it.
MINES AND MINING.
Under the provisions of the Coal Mines
Regulation Act and Amending Acts tbe
following were elected a board ofexam-
iners'last Saturday at Princeton: David
Forsyth; first alternate J. Horrocks; second alternate, W. Forsyth.
The Golden Chariot mine, near Oroville, will ship a carload of ore to the
Granby smelter.
W. G. Mitchell, of Voigt Camp, gave a
banquet last week at tbe Hotel Princeton
to a number of employes drilling for the
B. C. Copper Co.
I. H. Hallett, legal adviser for the B.C.
Copper Co., was in town Monday.
T. J. Corwin, placer mining man, is in
town.
The United Empire Co. will ship
about three cars of coal a week, beginning
next week.
C.  L. Tilley, real estate broker is in
town and expects to locate here.
RAILWAYS ARE SLOW
Construction is Difficult on the
Kettle Valley Near
the Lake.
Conference  at  Victoria Between the
Great Northern and Canadian.
Pacific Officials.
Construction work on the K.V railway
from Summerland to the Summit is toak-
ibg good progress Weather conditions
have been favorable, and the only thing
that has militated against rapid advance,
has been the scarcity of labor. In course
of time the road will be finished and a
shorter way to the coast cities will be enjoyed by the long suffering people of the
Okanagan. It is extremely fortunate that
we are a people pre-eminent in the realm
of morality and religion, otherwise the
slow time that will inevitably be made
on this particular line of railway, owing
to uniformly heavy grades and excep-.
tionallv sharp curves, might conduce to
blasphemy and profanity.—Summerland
Review.
E. E. Coley, chief of the K. V. survey,
party, ran a line to the V., V. & E. station, then crossed tp the south side of the
Similkameen, and is pushing on toward
Voigt camp.
What may be termed a peace conference is now being held at Victoria, the
principal signatories being the Canadian
Pacific and the Great Northern railways.
It is reported, unofficiallv, that these big
roads are settling the terms of the Coquihalla pass construction and running
rights over it. Whatever the result, no
time should be lost in parleying—the
people are longing to see this road finished.
Next year onght to be a banner year
around Princeton for railway work, but
the companies are so slow and snailisb
that hope is deferred sometimes and the
heart sickens.
TRANSPROVINCIAL ROAD
W. A. McLean, in charge of the T.P.R.
(transprovincial read) construction, is
having timber hauled on sleighs to Nine-
mile for the bridge he is erecting there.
It is hoped that his camp will continue
all winter, which, of course, largely depends on the weather and snowfall. Not
a day should be lost to insure early completion of this road to Hope. The benefit
to be derived fiomthis great trunk artery,
not only for Princeton district but the
whole country, is of vital importance to
progress.    	
Scholar promotions, exams, and Xmas
tr»e program will be published next
week.

B. C. FORESTRY NOTES.
The chief forester of the province announced recently the earnest desire ot
the forest branch iu Victoria to assist
those who require information on any
phase of the forest industry.
Russia began a forest policy in 1615,
and had forest reserves in 1687. She
possesses today the greatest store of timber in the world.
One forest in France pays over twenty
million dollars annually. Such a thing
as a fire is, of course, unknown.
There is a town in Europe whose citizens receive a dividend over and above
the municipal expenses. Wise use of the
surrounding fores has made it a peuna-
nent and growing revenue producer.
HONORABLE PEACE.
Ambassador Bryce told the committee
for the celehration of the centenary of
peace between the English speaking peoples at a dinner in New York recently
that nearly all wars had been due to human folly or human passion, and dwelt on
how much better it was to celebrate the
wisdom which had ended a war and
avoided any subsequent conflict rather
than the want and skill and wisdom
which made wars possible. Mr. Bryce
described what had been accomplished
during his official stay in Washington to
remove differences between the United
States and Great Britain, and to avoid
differences in the future He reviewed
the three arbitrations and several treaties
leading to a settlement of the Canadian
boundary dispute, the Newfoundland
fisheries question, the matter of the use
of the waters on the boundary and minor
points long at issue, and continued:
'All these treaties furnish an admirable
illustration of the dictum once delivered
by Mr. Root that where two nations and
governments desire to come to a fy.r
agreement it is always possible for them
to do so. With good will anything can
be accomplished.'

QUITE RIGHT.
Never find fault because a newspaper
fails to give every scrap of news, if you
are one of the people who never give,
the editpr any information. An editor
ise't a medium or a mind reader, but he
gets the news the same way the milkman gets his milk, by pumping. This is
true especially of that class of items
known a 'local' or 'personal.' Rightly
they are nst 'puffery' or "taffy ' but simply personal mention, given for the benefit of local readers and if you have a
.friend or relative visiting you, let us
know and we will be glad to give the
item proper notice. Pnt any bit of news
worth printing in the way of cur pencil
pushers.—Summerland Review.

and it is supposed was caused by defective insulation of a stove pipe.
LINING CONGRESS AT SPOKANE
The delegates will lung remember the
treatment they received at the hands of
the mining and business interests of the
city of Spokane. After enjoying five
days of hospitality in the city as guests
of the local mining men and the chamber of commerce, a two days' excursion
wa made to the silver lead camp of the
Co;nr d'Alenes. At Harrison, Kellogg
aud Wallace receptions were given in
true western style. But this social side
did not prevent the inspection of the
great properties that have produced
1250,000,000 (figures by Wallace board
of trrde), and are paying out half a million per month for labor, and there is no
sign of a curtailment of output.
E P. Wheeler of Friday Creek was
with the writer on the streets of Wallace
after visiting the Bunker Hill mill, one
of the finest plants in the world of its
kind, at Kellogg, the Hecla mine at
Burke, where there is the largest electric
hoist in the world, that takes a loaded
skip .of 15 tons balanced and raises'it
1200 feet to ihe surface and returns the
empty skip in one minute. The Hecla is
following an ore body that varies from
one inch to 18 feet i.i width, hoisting 400
tons per day and clearing a profit of $6o,-
000 per month.
At the Morning mine one of the basest
ores known to the mining world, silver,
zinc and lead so blended a- to make con
centration by water a failure, now with
tube mill grinding and oil flotatation a
98 per cent is made and a profit of $10,
000 per month comes from the refuse
that was turned down the creek. No
one can doubt who has seen the showing at Whipsaw, and then viewed this
camp as we have, that there are not
mines the equal of any we  have  viewed
Princeton will be to that camp and
those others that come into being what
Wallace is to the Coeur d'Alenes, the
meeting place of all the miners of the
Coeur d'Alenes who make use of their
own villages to supply their staple wants
The writer was in these camps twenty-
five years ago and saw the rivalry of the
then straggling settlements for place, and
with the object lesson before him of the
supremacy of Wallace, the central town,
cau say, as he hasoften in print, 'Princeton is to be the hub of mining in the
Similkamten.'
In Wallace, Idaho, I met a reader of
the Star, and after looking at the ores I
was showing, said, "Are you the Bulldog
Brown I hive seen mentioned in the
Star in relation to exhibits of ore fir the
Vancouver exhibition? Those Princeton
ores are going to make a good camp. I
know the Leadville ores, and these others
are a great addition. Princeton is to be
a mining center, and that is the place of
residence for you.' H B. BROWN.

blending, harmony and shading is away
above the average, aud I feel safe in saying that thev will draw capacity business
anywhere.—Signed: Morris Theater, per

AMERICAN RAW   FURS   BRING
HIGHEST PRICES IN HISTORY.
A. B. Shubert, Inc., Chicaeo, U.S.A.,
the largest house in the world dealing
exclusively in American' raw furs, in a
letter to the editor, says in part as follows:
'Raw furs are bringing extremely high
prices. Why not? Boom times are on.
Bumper crops have been harvested. Men
are employed everywhere at good wages.
Never in history was a dollar wor h so
little. Raw furs are bringing the high
est prices eyer known, and any trapper
with a few traps can surely make good
wages—because ther consumer is buying
furs, for the simple reason that they are
more fashionable this season than ever
before.
THE WIDE WORLD
The export trade of the United States
with Canada now averages one million
dollars a day; three years ago the average
was five hundred thousand dollars per
day.
A ton of gold, worth approximately
four hundred thousand dollars, was recently received from Dawson, Yukon, by
steamship.

GREETING.
Before another issue of the Star,
Christmas, 1912, will have passed
into history. The day is so time-
honored, and revered as marking
the greatest event of all ages in the
birth of the Saviour of the world,
that brief reference is only here
made. From this momentous event
all time is reckoned by the significant letters ' B.C.' and 'A.D.' ' To
readers of Star, to all patrons,
and everybody, 'A very happy
Christmas.'
PEACE OR WAR?
[Continued from last week.]
mends him for his forethought in
this respect. But no amount of
diplomatic strategy will offset the
warlike attitude and principle involved in the proposed contribution
°f $35,000,000 toward a navy:
Knowing that Canada was and is
perfectly safe from outside attack,
so long as she preserves a peaceful,
friendly and courteous bearing toward the nations, the government
should have hesitated, balked before
taking a leap in the dark, The
-.political exigencies of the home
government ought not to be allowed
any weight in a matter of this kind.
Britain is the moneylender of the
-world and she has some four
hundred millions of subjects to draw
from. Emergency, there is none.
A madness seems to have seized
statesmen and warriors the world
over. An epidemic war scare is shaking the'. with fear until their very
knees rattle together. An old man
like Sir Wilfrid Laurier shaking his
fist and beating the air at some
suppositional enemy is not a spectacle worthy of one who makes
some song of his peacemaking
desires. Canada   has   no   more
need of an army and navy than
a canine has need of two tails.
A few thousand of mounted police,
and some swift gunboats to catch
smugglers and fish poachers are all
that are required. Britain knew
this years ago and withdrew every
soldier and warship from Canada,
leaving her to protect her own
interests as best she could, and in
her   own   way.        Now,   however,
aided and abetted by the gun-
makers and some obsolete officers,
want a lift over their muddy ditch,
they find many plausible reasons for
Canada arming to the teeth and
participating with them. in the
naval extravaganza. They say they
want our moral support, and they
do not refuse financial assistance.
We borrow the money from them
to give it back, and with interest.
Canada is so poor and proud that
she must borrow from the very
people she makes her ostentatious
gifts to. Better wait until she can
pay her accumulating debts before
making presents costing many
millions.
The proposed huge contribution
would be much better employed in
opening up an immense hinterland,
building     trans-continental    highways,     developing    vast     natural
resources, peopling the great   lone
land   and   cultivating   the  arts  of
peace rather than war.    From non-
political and impartial standpoints,
naval or military establishment has
no justification   in   Canada.     Our
destiny    lies     along    commercial,
educational and religious paths.    If
we are to be great, and there is no
reason why we shonld not with a
soil begging for a hundred million
settlers, it will not come about by
uncivilized,   cruel   and   barbarous
war.      The sword must disappear
in  the  ploughshare.    This  is the
dictum of a great statesman, scientific christian and   the  prophet   of
all  ages.       Social   and   economic
questions demand our thought and
treasure   if we   are   to   make   real
progress.     Humanity   must   keep
pace with the spiritual promptings
toward betterment, otherwise physical   and    moral    decadence   will
come, and tbe nation crumble as old
Greece and Rome.    Peace hath her
victories   greater   than  war.—Pax
vobiscum.

MORNING  THOUGHTS.
] When this good day is done, oh, may
I to myself in candor say—
In counting up it, loss and gain—
"It was not lived in vain."
Somewhere between the rosy flower
Of dawn and evening's twilight hour,
From some one's long, long'path.oh, may
I roll a stone away.
May I, in kindly word or deed.
Bring solace to some one's deep need;
Make some one's sense of right more true.
His sky a fairer blue.
This day—it cannot come again;
Therefore, all I would do for men
Let me do now, in Heaven's smile,"
That Life may be worth while

THE  PHILOSOPHY  OF  LIFE.
If a child does not know submission
and obedience at six years of age, the
reformatory door is already ajar for hitii.
Never withhold the well  chosen   word
of praise—it will encourage to  better  effort; besides, it is good   for the giver as
[ well as the receiver. •
Cheer up! Cultivate the cheerful mood.
I Sing; 01, if you cannot rto that, 'whustle.'
! Miserable or happy, every person h^s
j it in their power to be either.
Beware of backbiting; for the accuser
is precisely the image of the thoughts he
utter.
Optimism prolongs one's days and
makes life enjoyable; pessimism souts
and wizens the soul and body. Boost,
don't knock.
Glory in your neighbor's prosperity
a.id you will prosper with him.
War is hell—the result of envy, hatred,
jealousy, lying, doubt, fear and greed.
In all the human family the character
which i_ smooth in jour presence and behind your back draws the stilefcto of malice, none is more despicable or objec
tionable. Judas is the most spurned, and
yet pitiable, character in all scriptural
history
It is possible now by the revelations of
chrisii.iii science to trace disease and
diaguo. e it from the standpoint of sin
The g eat Physician said to the healed
one 'sin no more, lest a worse thing befall thee.'
