 Coal is one unfailing resource of Princeton
Life is endless, without beginning: the dust body vanishes.
14th Year   No. 46
PRINCETON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1913.
PER YEAR : $2 Cash,
Single Copy 5c.
Glorious Climate, Winter Sports, Big Game: Coal, Ore, Placers
COAL, COPPER, GOLD,
SILVEJHEAD, IRON
IN DISTRICT
MINES  AND  MINING
Princeton district has a large variety
of minerals which include platinum,
gold, silver, lead, iron, copper coal
paints, gypsum, clays and at Olivine
mountain, near Tulameen, diamonds
have been found. It is doubtful if in
the whole world there is as wide range
of minerals in a like area.
The United Empire coal mine of East
Princeton shipped two carloads of coal to
Spokane on Wednesday and has a steady
demand for its output.
The Coalmont ] Callieries Co. are
building a wagon road to the north
bank of Granite creek where the development of the mines permit extraction. It is stated that enough
coal to supply local needs will be taken out and one or two carloads shipped for testing purposes. Until the
tramway or railroad is completed the
wagon road will serve all purposes.
Engineers for the B. C. Copper Co.
have been at Ashnola and Whipsaw recently in connection with the big dam
and proposed power site. It is expected a move will be made shortly leading to construction.
G. H. Whiteman, of the Princeton
Coal and Land Co., has returned from
an extended business trip.
R. A. Lambert went to the coast
last week having suspended operations on his placer lease on Granite
creek for the season. He is well
pleased with the prospects and recovered some fine samples of gold
and platinum in a small hole he sunk
to bedrock. There is considerable
stripping to be done yet and it will
take another season to put everything
in shape for washing for the gold and
platinum on the bottom.
The B. C. cement works at East
Princeton have been closed down for
want of coal and will utilize the time
in  repairs.
The United Empire coal mine will
soon be in shape to supply the cement
works- and East Princeton domestic
orders besides shipping, to outside
points. E. P. Galliac is superintendent.
The road to the new Coalmont camp
on the west side of the hill will soon
be completed. A restaurant and bunk
house will be run there by Lew Ruddy.
The B.- C. Copper Co. has made its
third payment upon its option on the
Eureka group of claims near Nelson.
United States investments in Canada aggregate $500,000,000, of which
$65,000,000 is in mining in British Columbia and $125,000,000 in mills and
timber also in this province.
F. Satchell Clark, engineer for the
B. C. Drilling and Dredging Company,
has gone to Quesnel to put the dredge
of the Watertight Dipper Dredge Company in shape for a trial next spring.
Negotiations have been closed by an
English syndicate for the purchase of
extensive coal land and mining properties in the New River district of
West Virginia at a price said to approximate fifty million dollars. About
five hundred and fifty thousand acres
of land and ninety-six collieries are
involved in the transaction.
R. G. Stokes, of the Canadian Mining
and Exploration Company, has been at
Portland Canal examinating the Her-
:fcules^.and other properties.
The bureau of statistics of the
American Iron and Steel Institiite has
received direct from the manufacturers complete statistics for the production of pig iron in Canada in the,
first six months of 1913. The amount
was 545,981 gross tons.
MOVING  PICTUBES.
The Princess theatre picture show
is exhibiting a fine line of subjects
notably the animal pictures, which
include snakes. Huge,reptiles in their
native lair were shown as in actual
life, causing many audible shudders to
be heard among the audience. Animal pictures, public works, exhibitions, land and seascapes, city, 'tfarjrj!
and orchard views ,game natural
scenery, comics, wild west adventures,
etc., win the audience and draw intense attention. Such pictures are
educational and make wholesome entertainment. The selections presented
at the Princess are on the whole good
and clear and there can be but little
complaint from the public censor, if
any. Thursday night the three-reel feature 'The Boomerang,' was put on extra
and was much appreciated by a large
audience.
WOMAN SUFFRAGE
Lloyd George, in reply to a deputation at Swindon, said he does not despair of a measure giving the parliamentary suffrage to women being carried in a short time, but not during
the present parliament. He said that
the militant tactics adopted by a section of the women had converted many
persons' indifference for the cause of
woman suffrage into something like
bitter hostility. The militant section
of the suffragettes had created a Situation which was the worst he had ever
seen for woman suffrage in parliament. He said he was glad to see that.
the spirit of militancy was withering.
In conclusion, he told the women to
undertake pilgrimages, for 'thatTis how
the women have won votes in other
countries.'
THE WIDE WORLD.
The possibility of India taking a
leading position as a silk exporting
country is once more proposed by
Commissioner Booth-Tucker in the annual feport on the silk center of the
Salvatoin Army in India and -Ceylon.
Delegates to the seventy-ninth convention of the Delta Upsilon faternity
meeting in Rochester, N. Y., last week,
voted to bar from membership after
1917 any college freshman who had
been a member of a high school or
preparatory school secret fraternity
It was also agreed to urge the Pan-
Hellenic council to take similar action
to govern college fraternities in the
country.   •
KETTLE VALLEY LAST
LINK, 60 MILES,
K ISLET    1
RAILWAY POINTS.
Tenders for the construction of the
connecting link of the Kettle Valley
railway from Ospray lake to a point
60 mlies west are being opened by
President Warren, who, with Mr. McCullough, chief engineer, has just returned to the city after conducting an
inspection of the proposed line. Bids
for alternative routes have been invited.
Discussing the progress of the work
along' the Kettle valley, Mr. Warren
said that of 295 miles of track to be
laid between Midway and Hope, steel
had been installed for more than 100
miles, and-almost 200 miles of grading is completed. In addition to the
Boundary, Kootenay, Kettle valley
and Okanogan districts, 25 miles 'of
line has been finished from Meritt to
Coldwater junction;J||7Machine shops
and round houses have been established at Penticton, and good progress is
being made all along the route. Direct
railway communication between Pen-
iticton and Kpotenay is expected to be
established by the middle of next
summer.
Mr. Warren is anxious to complete the railway as rapidly as possible. Some of the work is very heavy
and in one section there are 17 tunnels. The average cost of building
up the Coquhalla valley is $100,000 per
mile, according to engineer's estimates. When : completed the Kettle
Valley Railway will give Vancouver
direct connection with the Okanogan
valley and the great coal and ore producing Similkameen district.
Contractors for grading on the Kettle Valley railway have been examining the routes leading to Princeton
and Aspen Grove.
The presidents and managers of the
Great Northern and affiliated roads
have visited Princeton this week.
Their stay was short and had no significance except that it was J .J. Hill's
first visit to these parts.

MERELY SUGGESTIVE
The suggestion is made that the old
buildings near the Tulameen bridge
should be either improved or removed
as the Penticton owner sees fit. With
the completion of the new bridge and
embankment it would be too bad to
have the sightly effect marred by unsightly buildings. The suggestion is
also made that the sidewalk on Bridge
street be extended to the Similkameen
bridge, thus giving unbroken connection throughout the length of the
street, a boon to all miners and others
going to the coal mine or beyond.-
With the clearing away of trees and
brush near the Similkameen bridge the
view of Bridge street would be vastly
improved and the striking effect would
be particularly favorable for travellers
on passing trains.

THE   DEFECTIVE   CLASSES.
A bulletin just issued by the Census Department at Ottawa gives statistics relative to "the infirmities of
the people." For the first time in
census-taking in. Canada an effort has
heen made to differentiate as between
the insane and the idiotic or-feebleminded. The number of blind.in 1911
was 3,238, of deaf and dumb 4,584, of
insane 17,702, and of defectives of 28,-
611, of whom 15,530 were males and
13,081 females. From 1901 to 1911 the
population increased by 34.17 per cent;
for the same period the total number
of infirm increased from 26,148 to
28,611, an increase of 9.32 per cent,
in that decade. The statistics of the
blind show that the number has been
steadily decreasing since 1891. For
each census period there were 100
males to every 75 females incapacitated through blindness.

The government of New Zealand decided on Oct. 28th to build a navy
of its own on the same lines as that
of the Commonwealth of Australia,
and to discontinue its subsidy to the
Imperial British Navy. The Premier,
Mr. Massey, in announcing the reversal
of the present system, explained that
the decision of the government to assume theL greater responsibility was
due to the inability of the British Admiralty to carry out its agreement of
1909 and station two cruisers of the
Bristol type of_ 4,800 tons displacement
in New Zealand waters, the Dominion
bearing the cost of their upkeep.

USELESS NOISES.
The campaign against useless noises
is not confined to the big cities. A
correspondent who signs himself "Distracted," has his peaceful slumbers
disturbed by the unmusical tinkle of
the cow bells and airs his grievance in
the Columbia Valley Times:
"The incessant tintinnabulation of
these discarded meat cans attached to
the necks of j our local herds is a
nerveracking business and although I
have been a lover of fresh milk since
birth, I am prepared to revert to the
canned variety at any time, should destruction prove the only remedy.
These disordant chimes may sound
soothing and poetic enough in the
romantic environment of Alpine
heights, with Swiss milkmaids and
Cook's tourists roaming harmlessly
about in the background, but I plead
that in a busy commercial centre like
Athalmer such unmelodious clatter-
ings are entirely out of place."
China has granted to Japan an important concession for the extension
of her railroads in southern Manchuria, which- will open up a great
agricultural district. The new line is
to start_at the city of Chinchow.

A PORTABLE COURT.
Lord Haldane's proposal to make
the judicial committee of the  privy
council a movable  court sitting  in
the various capitals of the colonies
is not at all likely  to  prove  satisfactory.    He mistakes the  feelings
and opinions of thinking men if he
believes that his scheme will  prove
a solution of the difficulty of having
a court of last  appeal  for  the  colonies in far distant  London.    It is
not only a question of convenience
that the final court  should be permanently located in the  capital  of
each colony but it is a matter of self
respect   and   ability.    It   is   most
humilitating and inconsistent  with
the principles  of freedom   and democracy to be forced to go outside
the dominion for legal  decision   or
verdict.    As  if  the colonials were
not  capable  of adjudicating  their
own  legal  cases and trials.    Lord
Haldane's proposition is void of any
merit so far as Star is  able  to  see
and  its  vision  is  founded  on the
common sense view  thatv.a people
or country must have self government, home  rule  in  every detail,
control its own affairs and settle all
questions    concerning    right    and
justice for  the  individual, municipality, corporation or state.    To be
tied.to mother by her apron strings
will   not  develop  the  child.    The
child must learn to  thihk and  act
for itself if it is going to be  of any
importance    or    account.    If    the
mother country wants to draw  her
sons and daughters of empire more
closely to her "it cau   be  done  ouly
1 by taking them  into  full  partnership and treating them  as  if they
were   not   inferiors,   incapable   of
giving fair court decision.    Britain
is awakening to the facts   that   the
people must rule and govern,   own
the land and be freed from classism.
Equal rights and privileges  to  all,
freedom    of   conscience   and   disestablishment of church,   abolition
of hereditary legislators and empty
titles, these are  among the  things
that will draw the  colonies  to  the
motherland.  Lord Haldane's travelling  court  would-be  a   very  expensive affair if one is to judge  by
the bills of judges while on ordinary
circuit duty.    No, it will not do for
people imbued with democratic
tendencies to give up their sovereign
right to settle all their legal disputes
and political difficulties. Less of
'red tape' and bewigged benchers,
more of common sense and simplicity
are required in administering the
laws. The representative of the
throne is at Ottawa and that should
be sufficient guarantee for justice
to all subjects usiug the supreme
court, which should be final and
absolute.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
There is yet hope that  universal
suffrage may be gained in  Britain.
One of the ministers has stated that
the'queslion will be  introduced  in
the house of commons at  an  early
date notwithstanding the damaging
effect to the cause by. the  outrages
of     fighting    suffragettes.     That
woman should have the same rights
and privileges as any other human
being ought to  be  sufficiently  self
evident to our legislators in Canada
as to cause them to wipe away  the
stain   of   discrimination   and   preference accorded the  male  population.    It   is  a  shame  and  a  blot
upon our supposed Christianity and
civilization that man  should  deny
woman equality while  the Creator
made   them   equal  'and    without
respect of person, bone of our  bone
and flesh of our flesh.    It is tyranny
in its worst form, if not a crime, to
force  laws  upon a  portion  of ihe
people without permitting  a  voice
in the  framing  of them.    Certain
evils  peculiar to the   weaker   sex
will never be met and overcome so
long as men alone are  allowed  to
legislate  upon  them.    War,   with
all its horrid concomitants and  the
graft of weapon 3nd warship makers,
will continue so long as  sole right
to make it  conceded  to  men  who
care not.for the widow and  orphan
and who would be the last  to  risk
their own skins on the  firing  line.
Canada ought not to falter   on  the
question of votes  for  women  but
show the rest of the world that  she
does not depreciate mother, wife or
sister.    Universal   suffrage   would
mean a long step toward  universal
peace—dare the province of British
Columbia show the way ?
Every eye is now trained on
Washington, awaiting the decision
of President Wilson regarding his
rude neighbor, Mexico'. So far the
president has conducted his cause
admirably. He does not want war
and if he had an intelligent and
reasonable adversary to deal with
there would be a settlement of the
difficulty within forty-eight hours.
It may be necessary for the United
States to reform and reconstitute
Mexico, in which case she would
have to invade and occupy as with
Cuba and the Philippines,, much to
the benefit of all concerned.

Judge Murphy is said to be putting
on war paint and whetting his hatchet
for the approaching provincial elections.
I Bob Cramer and Tuck French state
that native silver has been struck on
the Granite Creek Gold group. The
tunnel is in 33 feet.
In the estimates brought down at
Victoria last week the government
grants $12,000 for Similkameen roads,
trails and bridges. (That looks small
compared with the magnificient sum
granted this year, $375,000.—Ed.
E. Barr Hall - returned from Kelowna last Sunday where it was reported that he had gone on an interesting
mission.
A test is being made of the Princeton coal at the Daly Reduction works,
Hedley. It is proving satisfactory for
steam purposes.
Dan Couteny has spent a very pleasant winter among old Tullicums at
Butte, Mont.,' and is now getting ready
for the hills to prospect.
The board of trade passed a resolution favoring the construction of a
telephone line through the Similkameen to connect with the Boundary
country arid thence to Spokane, also
the extension of the sidewalk from the
school house.
Fifteen tons of coal were shipped
last Monday by the Vermilion Forks

S. R. Gibson of Chilliwack, arrived
last Saturday on a visit to his brother
Luke. He greatly appreciates the dry
bracing atmosphere of Princeton in
contrast with the depressing climate
at the coast.
Kit Summers lassoed a cayote last
Saturday on the outskirts of town.
The brute was so cantankerous and
bent on suicide that Kit sent him to
his 'long home, by a 'short cut.'
Miss Eliza A. Bromley returned
from Pembroke, Ont., last Week and
will spend her "holidays at home
Bromleyville.
The board of trade sent memoranda
to D. Ross, M. P., and L. W. Shatford
M. P. P., directing their attention to
the necessity for a school of mines
and pointing out the advantages pf
Princeton for it.
A team of oxen on the streets of Princeton yesterday reminded one of the good

about a woman drowning herself. The
teacher asked a boy to read agaiii.
He began : 'She threw herself into
the river. Her husband, horror-
stricken, rushed to the bank—' The
teacher interrupted : 'Now tell me
why the husband rushed to the
bank ?' Quick and sharp his answer :
'Please, ma'am to get the insurance
money.'
Robert, was about to have another
birthday. In the past the fnn-making
had always been so hard and prolonged
that it left him fatigued at night. So
this year, before he went to bed the
night before, when he had "said his
prayers, he began over again. His
mother, surprised, asked him : 'Why
are you saying yonr prayers twice,
Robert ?'
'Oh,' replied Robert, 'tomorrow night
I shall be too tired to say them at all !'
A gentleman who had been in the
city only three days, but who had been
paying attention to a prominent belle,
wanted to propose but was afraid he
would be thought too hasty. He deli-
catly approached the subject as follows :-
'If I were to speak to you of marriage
after having only made your acquaintance three dags ago what would you say
to it ?'
'Well, I should say never put o'ff till
tomorrow that which you should have
donetyhe day belore yesterday.'
Mark Twain was spending a summer
in a small town while a subscription   was
being raised by the citizens' for the
building of a new Jfence around a very
old and dilapitated cemetry. Mark was
asked several times for a contribution,
but each request was refused. Upon
being asked for an explanation of his
want of interest he replied :—'I see no
reason for it. Those, who are in the
cemetry can't get out, and those that are
out don't want to get in.'
It was a Scotchman from Dundee, en
route to the Canadian west, who stood on
the platform at North Bay during the
hunting season. Seeing some large
animals lying there, he approached a
native with :
'What might you call that?'
'A moose,' was the reply.
' A mouse ! My conscience, if that's a
mouse, what must their rats be like ?'
And he took the next train back to
Montreal.
MONEY IN TRAPPING FUES.
The money picked up by the trappers
in a season is something that would
make a great many people sit up and
take notice. Fifteen years ago 75 cents
was good value for a skunk, $1 was considered a high quotation for a mink and
10 to 15 cents was all anyone ever expected for a muskrat. Compare these
prices with present day values, $4 to - $5
for black sknnk, JS6 and $10 for a prime
mink and 50 to 60 cents for spring musk-
rats. The foregoing is from the statement of A. B. Shubert, Inc., of Chicage,
one of the largest houses in the world
dealing in raw furs
