PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1909.

AS OTHERS SEE IT
Princeton   Only   Five Hours
from Coast When Rails
are Laid.
Divisional Points Equidistant—Coast
Papers shonld Urge Pushing
of Construction.
. The following article from the Grand
Forks Gazette is so apropos that space is
readily found for it. It says: "The
Similkameen Star reports 13^ acres
bought by the Great Northern in Princeton and expects a divisional point established there.    It looks likely.
'* The Saturday Sunset of Vancouver,
which has been urging for direct communication from the Boundary to Vancouver, without noticing this purchase, uses
Princeton as a point of view from which
to argue fnrther. The distance from Vai -
couver to Princeton is about five hours
run, or 125 miles; from Princeton to
Grand Forks is about the Same.
"Grand Forks is now the distributing
point for goods coming in from the States
into the Boundary ; the train crews also
change here and a general agent has resided here, as is the case with the C.P.R.
From these it is natural to suppose that
Grand Forks will be the first divisional
point over the boundary line and Princeton will be the next, half way to Vancouver.
"Vancouver is losing much valuable
trade by the present arrangement. With
a nine or ten hour run to Vancouver the
whole Boundary trade would be done
there instead of much of it going to
Spokane as at present. Why the other
co 1st papers do not push this is hard to
see.
SURVEY OF C. N RAILWAY.
A start has been made on the location
of the Canadian Northern line between
Kamloops and the coast. One party of
fifteen men is working down the Fraser
from Lyttot, and another party has started up from Yale, on the opposite bank
to that occupied by the C. P. R. From
the junction of the Thompson and the
Fraser, the C.N.R. will take the same
side as the C.P.R., running on a lower
level, and crossing under the approach
to ths cantilever bridge at Cisco flat.
It is expected that the location survey
from Yellowhead Pass to the Coast will
be completed before the end of the year.
THE BIG CELEBRATION.
The celebration on Dominion Day is
going to be one of the best ever held in
Princeton.*. Contingents . from outside
points are expected and private letters
received from friends indicate that a lot
. of merrymakers will be present to par
ticipate in the fun and if possible make
the lion roar louder than before. The
Printing and Publicity Committee have
literally sown the country with posters
and advertising literature, so that no one
need say they 'didn't know.' Some fast
racing is promised from owners of local
steeds and 'dark horses' may be strongly
in evidence that dav. Hedley and Kere-
emeos baseball teams are expected to take
part in the tournament which will result
in some team taking down the $100 cash
prize.
A CAUSE OF DIVORCE.
Probably the most prolific source of
divorce is that disagreeable habit of
snoring in sleep with which we have all
had more or less experience. An inventor has on exhibition at the A.Y.P. a
snore silencer, which works on the cold
storage -principle and can be emptied
every morning of the accumulated snores,
ready for use next night. Wonder if
this inventor would turn his attention to
a contrivance for warming feet. Equipped with snore silencers and foot heaters
there must be a great decrease in family
jars and divorces. We live in'a wonderful age.
PRINCETON OUN CLUB.
The formation of a Gun Club last Friday evening marks an important addition
to the sporting field of Princeton. There
was a good turnout of crack shots and
enthusiasts who will, no doubt, give a
creditable record of themselves in the
forthcoming shoot for the Shatford cup
on Dominion Day. The following officers
were elected : President, E. Waterman ;
Secretary, Dr. Lazier ; Committee, J. D.
Lumsden, D. M. French, Bert Irwin.
Fifteen members are enrolled and more
in sight. Ladies are invited to join.
The entrance fee has been fixed at $2.
' LORD RASPBERY.'
Dead to all sense of propriety and the
eternal fitness of things that toriest of
Tory newspapers, the Vancouver Province, recently printed Lord Rosebery's
name as ' Lord Raspbery.' What contemptible spleen and spite would thus
change a name fragrant and pretty for
one that is always seedy, and sour more
or less. Because his lordship is a Liberal
it is no reason why the Province should
thus desecrate a name that is high on the
scroll of fame and somewhat notorious
for recent war scare utterances. Take it
back, Province.
H. B. Brown of Hedley was in town
last week on a business visit. He shows
some excellent ore from his mining property near Hedley. He is optimistic and
the kind of man that ought to win and
will win.   He has faith and he works.
School meeting will be held on the
10th of July.

Tenders must be addressed to C. S. Stevens, Summerland, B.C.
A big beaver was observed in the Similkameen river near MeLean's camp tbe

MAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF
EMPIRE SOLID.
:. One good result ofett? Anglo-
German.jwar scare.,, is the.interest
aroused among thougUtAAifln-d pat*
riotic Canadians regarding? construction of warships and guns in Canada. Hitherto all, or nearly so, of
the gunboats and cruisers required
for customs and fisheries protection
and ocean.going mercantile ships
have beaq built .in Britain. There
is an abundance of - raw material in
Canada 'for the manufacture of
everything requiredviB':the building
and equipment ',of? warships. To
purchase a navy in the old country
sufficient to defend Canada's vast
seaboard and a thousand or more
miles of lake shore, would mean an
expenditure of at least two hun-
■dre^l and fifty millions of dollars.
Then, there are those who advocate
the gift outright of- a-lafge sum of
mbftey' for ::rdhstruction "of Dread-
^noaVghtS'-imBrmi*/1 costing ten mil-
^Op^.^do"llar;s apiece, and handing
theia.over:.to the English for use as
'they see fit. cia-iathn
;\ In the earlier .stages ,of the recent
war scare' the Star expressed disap-
proy&Tv6f any scheme of defence
wjiich iell^ short offfpstering cur
■own iudustrifis land developing our
great natural resources. , It is' a
matter of some gratification tpiearjj
that the Dominion government now
takes the same view and is, favor-
•ably receiving representations fcr
the establishment- of 'a national
arsenal and shipyards &nd drydocks
on the Atlantic and' Pacific, coasts.
It would be a great and serious
blunder Jto spend^tnillions of money
.for warships built,, and manned-in
•England and donated to her, for
the mere spectacle it would create,
aud for which Canada would in
return receive loud clapping of
hands and probably the thanks of
•parliament. The gift of money or
•Dreadnoughts to Britain is only an
■outburst of emotional loyalty which
cannot survive the calm, sober
thought and action of those who
jdesir,^ the., progress- of Canada as
•.well as.its proper protection.
There are in Canada a few L,ittle
Englandersan'd Little Canucks who
•aim at self glorification and the
tawdry praise of the passing throng,
.who prefer the plaudits of the gallery to the. undemonstrative approbation of well balanced, thoughtful
not have the glitter of sensationalism. Canada is no longer a child
in d^d'.s house, it is full grown in
stature and manhood, and, as with
all dutiful sons will, is in the past,
defend the old folks from devouring
enemies. In doing this she mtjsrbe
allowed to take such steps as will
make her self reliant,, and able to
defend herlelf.
A great deal is said ' about the
Dt of gratitude Canada owes Britain'for defending it. History does
not show- that Canada- ever . provoked a war or instigated trouble
of any kind without settling it,
virtually, with her own money and
with her; own- blood. 'Business and
political reasons prompt nations to
conqhest, annex and colonize, and
as ii' colony Canada has responded
to all'the-responsibilities oftar self-
:governing-, dominion,' relieving' the
mother country of garrisons and
military occupation generally.- As
a business investment„Ga.D.ada has
been, and is, a good customer of
Englandls manufactured products,
borrowing immense sums of money
on gilt edge?" security and providing
homes and employment for its overcrowded masses, and "as a field for
investment none better. .
. To^boast of one's loyalty to home
and country is- superfluous and obnoxious. No Canadian of intelligence "prates about his country or
assumts a superior, air.before people,.of another birth, nor will he
tolerate needless "affronts, from the
stranger' to the^soil. • He-. Claims
equality with' the better class of
nations, asking no favor but't?H5e\
left alone in -.workijigjQut.the probV
lems of nationhood. In ..building,
equiipping: and manning, its own
fleet it will gi've'an impetus- tOfiLrtf-
perial unity and create indiisWfes
without which no country can "compete for commerciahsupremacy. It
is hoped that the Canadian trinis^
ters at the coming conference will
urge that Canada builds, maintains
and equips its.cown. navy, to beni'sed'
for defence of theEmpire-asa whole
and any portion thereof.- .

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Interior Department has issued a pamphlet .entitled 'Canada's
Western Heritage,' being a description of British Columbia, its farms,
forests, fisheries, , fruit growing,
mining, etc. A resource map has
also been issued by the same Department for - free distribution to
anyone writing for-them.
j Good character shows better and
is better than all the fashionable
mannerisms of so-called' society.
If fashion decrees that toast shall
be eaten butter side down is that to
say that they who 'feed' that way
are better or superior to those who
eat toast butter side up ? Yet there
are silly people who hold, thero-
people. These classes of people\ selves aloof from those who do not
pooh-pooh even loyalty which does I do so-and-so, or as they do.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
ODDS AND ENDS.
C. S. Steveus, Superintendent of the
Lake Shore Telephone Co., and Superintendent of the Dominion Government
Telephone Line Co. has recently bought
a fine automobile. Nothing slow about
C. S.
Charles Camsell, Dominion geologist,
is .expected to arrive soon to complete
the work begun last summer at Otter
Flat, in the platinum zone.
British companies will spend $15,000,-
000 in developing mining properties in
the state of Washington. Just a trifle
slow in B.C. or a like amount would be
invested in the development of mining
and other resources.
A party of miners made a cleanup of
$1200 iu gold last winter in the Big Bend.
The law in B.C. provides for turning to
the left in meeting another vehicle. In
all the other provinces the law says
turn to the right.
The Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel is now
in 100 feet and averaging five feet per
day.

ODDS AND ENDS.
Admiral Charles Beresford, addressing
a gathering of Australians on the naval
question recently, urged that the colonies instead of contributing towards the
building of a Dreadnought, should build
cruisers to protect their trade and com
merce, and to form the nucleus of navies
of their own. This, he said, should not
b.e difficult for the colonies. What the
British Empire wanted was a navy that
was able to go out and attack and protect
routes. He considered that "our insane
advertisement of Dreadnoughts"offended
} other nations and involved Europe in
terribly exgensive naval competitions.
The Nickel Plate mine at Hedley has
been bonded bj^the Daly estate to M. K.
Rogers, who was instrumental in  bringing the property as a prospect to  the  at-
jterltion of the late Marcus Daly, for sev
Jleral million dollars.   The identity of the
s parties to whom Mr. Rogers is now  trying to sell the property  is a secret,  but
their   agents   and   experts   are   on   the
.ground directing diamond drilling oper
atidjis that will determine whether they
take hold of it or not.
