 No stuffy or sooty pipes ; no gas from Princeton coal.
T 'ft. \$ij$, -tc? keep sweet: Motto for 1910.
Everything points to Princeton being a divisional and junction terminus of the V., V. &E.; it is the natural converging centre for
rivers, roads and trails and Its location is admittedly the choicest in the Similkameen Valley as a distributing point—Buy now.

facilitate weddings, whether of local or
foreign origin. And that reminds us
that two very promising weddings are
now in sight in local circles. Both are
popular and well known couples.

RAILROAD BUILDERS

Sub Contractors Beady and Grading
Implements on Ground—Dirt
Fly Soon.
Patrick Welch, principal of the big
railroad contracting firm of P. Welch &
Co., arrived in town yesterday over the
V.,V. & E. His firm, one of the largest
earth moving concerns in the world, has
recently been awarded the contract for
building the remaining portions of the
road. The summit of Hope mountains
is not yet under contract, there being two
routes available and under expert consideration, but it is quite probable the above
firm will get it.
Mr. Welch was accompanied by R. B.
Porter, A. Kellett, J. McAlpin and Geo.
Cunningham, officials of the company.
After luncheon at the Great Northern
hotel the party drove up the Tulameen
river as far as Welldo and Granite Creek,
making cursory inspection of the line to
be built and locating camps.
While the day is not fixed for actual
construction to begin it is settled that
operations will commence as soon as the
preliminary arrangements are completed.
The tunnel on the western limits of the
town will probably be the first work undertaken, and most of the equipment is
on the station grounds.
Sub-contractors Hankinson, McLean
and McDonald are in town and their
presence may be taken as an indication
that dirt will be flying and trees falling
soon.

Princeton coal has gained snWh an
enviable reputation that it is in great
demand and prospectors are locating
claims wherever there are any indicatior s
of it. From Rossland ind the Boundary
papers comments on its excellence may
be taken. At present the demand is
increasing rapidly and the underground
force is being continually added to
With the completion of the V.,V. & E
to the coast Princeton coal will have a
big market opened up to it and it will
undoubtedly have the preference over
the dirty fuel used there. As an illustration of the cleanliness of Princeton
coal a consumer states that he has had
no occasion to clean his stovepipes after
two years of continuous use of the coal
in his stoves. The future demand for'this
coal is assured.
Divine service  on  Sunday at  11 and

It is no longer a matter of conjecture
or doubt as to the immediate building of
the V.,V. & E., thus connecting Princeton with the coast and solving the great
problem of transportation. The uncompleted section is not considered by prai —
tical men, who know the country, as
seriously difficult, which with a reasonable push ought to permit of through
trains being run to Vancouver by the 1st
January, 1912. Following are some particulars taken from the Vancouver Province relating to the contracts recently
let :
Construction of the V.,V. & E. railway I
from Abbotsford to Hope, a distance of
approximately 50 miles, will be in full
swing within the next month, or at least
as soon as the contractor can get his outfits on the ground. Information to this
effect was secured in connection, with the
announcement that the contract for the
building of this stretch of the road which
is to link the coast with the Kootenay
and Boundary districts had been awarded
to Mr. P. Welch of Spokane.
Incorporated in the contract is a clause
to the effect that, all things being equal,
all supplies to be used in connection with
construction shall be bought in British
Columbia. The Vancouver board of
trade has been notified of the existence
of this stipulation in tbe contract.
The contract was let from the head
offices of the Great Northern railway in
erally known, a subsidiary company of
the former railway. Coast officials of the
Great Northern were yesterday afternoon
notified of the awarding of the contract.
Mr. Welch is a member of the contracting firm of Foley, Welsh & Stewart,
which is now engaged on Grand Trunk
Pacific construction work from Prince
Rupert eastward. The same firm built
the existing line of the V.V. & E. from
Marcus, Wash., in Princeton, a distance
of approximately 500 miles
The amount of money involved in the
contract was not given out for publication, but it is known that none of the
work between Abbotsford and Hope will
be costly owing to the generally level
nature of the country traversed, practi
cally all of it being flat benches flanking
the Fraser river. It is expected that this
section of the railway will be finished
next September.
It was generally understood  that the
contract for the construction of 18 miles
of railway from Princeton to Otter Flat,
on the Coldwater river east of Hope pass,
would be awarded at the time the work
between Abbotsford and Hope was let,
but no word of this is contained in the
message from St. Paul.
The news has been confirmed that the
construction of the V.,V. & E. will be
carried on simultaneously from both
ends, Princeton and Abbotsford. The
firm of J^ W. Stewart 8& Co. has been
awarded the contract to build the V.,V.
& E. to Otter plat, a distance ot 18 miles
from Princeton, and the same firm, which
is identical with Foley, Welch & Stewart,
will build from Abbotsford to Hope, a
distance of 57 miles. West from Hope
grading will begin as soon as at other
points.
PBINCETON LOOKS GOOD TO
VISITING PIONEEB.
A. E. Howse of Nicola, arrived in town
last Thursday on his annual inspection
trip, covering his large mercantile, real
estate, mineral, lands and newspaper interests. He is pleased with ttie evidences
of progress and the very substantial
increase in the A. E. Howse Co's business during the past year. The Company
expects a much larger increase of business this year and will supplement their
already large warehousing facilities with
a new building near the railroad station.
Some important changes in the Co's
affairs are contemplated, but not on account of the personnel here who have
given every satisfaction to the public and
Mr. Howse. He left for the coast via
Spokane yesterday.

STBDCTION OF V.,y.' & E.
Notice has been given by the
member for Yale-Cariboo, Mr. Burrell, that application will be made
for an extension of the V ,V. & E.
charter shortly to expire. It is not
likely, nor would it be reasonable,
that any opposition will develop in
the railway committee of the house
©f commons against said extension,
seeing that President Hill has produced the evidence of completed
line in proof of his bona fide intention to carry out the terms of the
original charter and build through
to the coast. Insistence must, however, be made regarding the short
limitation of time to be given. It
is too bad that the time and opportunities of the inhabitants of the
Similkameen, as well as of thousands of investors, should be frittered away in waiting upon slow
construction and completion of this
road to the coast. At the rate of
construction from Midway to
Princeton, some four or five years
for about 140 miles, it would at least
be 1915 before trains would be running to the coast. Two years are
ample in which to build the remaining link between Princeton and
Abbotsford, a distance of about 140
miles. Mr. Burrell, M.P., will, no
doubt, urge the limitation of time
mentioned and thus ward off deadly
delay, which has had such injurious
^effect in the past five years.
clfmate and productivity of the soil
are bound to induce men with
independent means to locate here
for the mere inherent pleasure,
comfort and healthfulness to be
derived from them. It will be possible then for the coast business
man of means to escape the prevalent rains and fogs every week end
and hie away to the sun kissed
Similkameen.
BECIPBOCITY   BETWEEN  VANCOUVER AND PBINCETON.
The Vancouver daily papers are.
at last, beginning to awaken to the
fact that there is such a place as
Princeton and a Similkameen district. Scarcely an issue of these
well edited, enterprising newspapers without some article or reference to this country and the railway now -about to link Vancouver
with it. Within five hours' run of
Princeton over the V., V. & E.
when completed Vancouver will
profit with an immensity far beyond
any present speculation. The tourist and com-cercial traffic that will
spring up between the two places
will more than justify any effort to
promote harmony and goodwill between them and the early completion of the road. Two totally different climates, wet and dry, and
the varying scenic grandeurs of sea
arid mountain will produce a great
passenger    traffic.      Further,    the
NOTES AND COMMENTS.    J
Regarding the attitude of the
Hedley | Gazette in saying that
cunceton was ' inclined to favor
the idea of making the (Hedley)
hospital a district institution ' there
is evidently some misunderstanding.
Preliminary steps were taken several months ago toward the construction of a hospital in Princeton,
a site for which has already been
donated by the Vermilion Forks
Co. All success is wished Hedley
in its laudable ambition to have a
'district institution' but the Gazette
surely will not complain if Princeton carries out its project, to do
which will require the utmost of
its resources and energy besides
governmental assistance.

The Saturday Sunset still keeps
jabbering away in its monkeyfied
manner about the 'servile' Similkameen press. No intelligent person in this part of the country cares
for Bruce's praise or denunciation.
If he wants to accomplish any good
and useful purpose toward building
up and developing the country it
cannot be done by knocking contemporaries and lamenting because
electors did not take his advice in
the recent elections. It is hoped
Bruce will yet see the error of his
way and be constructive instead of
destructive. May it be suggested
that instead of wasting space in
useless controversy both Sunset
aud Star join in a boost of the
country generally and the Similkameen in particular.
In the present year Princeton
will have many things to attend to
which concern the welfare of tbe
town and district. Harmonious
work of the citizens in all that pertains to progress is necessary. A
divided house cannot stand, nor
can a divided community. Where
there is a seeming clash of interests
the spirit of compromise and honorable arbitrament should prevail.
It may even happen that self efface-
ment will be necessary to avoid sectionalism-and rivalry. E pluribus
