Princeton coal is precious, hence the term 'black diamonds.'
To All: A happy New Year.
Coal is the backbone  and mainstay of Princeton and six different coal companies are wise to this fact—Thousands of miners will
yet be employed in this district in the production of coal and the manufacture of coke—Metalliferous mines In the vicinity.
PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 28, 1910.        $2 a Year in Advance

MINES AND MINING
Kettle Valley Railway (CP.R.)
Wants Share of the
Coal Tonnage.
Fare Bituminous Coal Expected to be
Produced from Hines in
this Basin.
Thirteen-cent copper is the rulingprice
on the Boston market This is the first
big rally from a long slump. It is ex
pected to move still higher.
By advertisement of the Kettle Valley
Railway Co. it will be observed that this
company is also after the coal tonnage to
come from Granite creek basin,    y/
Nelson is moving to have a school of
mines in Kootenay. What is Princeton
doing aloug this line ?
The B.C. Copper Co's smelter made a
profit of $35,000 in Nov.
There is every reason to believe that
bituminous coal will be struck in Princeton basin. Further development is expected to prove this as the indications are
very favorable. Sub-bituminous is the
classification of the coal now produced
but it is certainly changing to a pure
bituminous quality.
Manager W. Wilson of the Chilliwack -
Princeton Coal Co., is making good headway with the shaft, although water is an
obstacle now in considerable quantity.
A good workable seam of coal has been
passed in order that a much larger vein
may be tapped. The shaft is now down
abont one hundred feet.
HOSPITAL MASQUERADE BALL
The big social event and feature of the
season's gaieties is the masquerade ball
to be given by the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary Friday night, 30th inst., in the
I.O.O.F. hall. Everything is in readiness for tbe occasion. The Ladies have
put energy and real enthusiasm into the
preparatory work and that spells success
for any undertaking. Having done their
part it remains with the public to show
their appreciation in the purchase of
tickets, and if possible by personal attendance. The hospital building is
completed and is a credit to the town and
district. Patrons of the ball will help a
worthy cause besides enjoy the pleasures
which usually accompany a first class
masquerade.   Come!
ONE OF THE PIONEERS.
Col. Robert Stevenson is enjoying
Christmastide with his family at Chilliwack and will probably spend the winter
there. On his way out he was interviewed by the editor of the Oroville Gazette,  with the result that he oceupies
large space in tbe columns of that paper.
His reminiscences are full of thrilling
incidents and hardships bordering upon
the tragic. It is Star's ambition to publish a biographical skitch of Col. Stevenson, relating incidents in the polite,
yet expressive if unvarnished language
of the frontier. As pioneer, goldhunter
and reconteur, belonging to the old
school and generation of sterling men,
Col. Stevenson has borne his part well
in helping to lay the foundations firmly
of a great province and by his discoveries in the mineral field be has been an
important factor in making known to the
world the vast riches of this country.
Star wishes him many happy and prosperous New Years.
HEW HOTEL MANAGEMENT.
The Similkameen hotel has recently
changed proprietorship, J. N. Nelson now
being sole owner and manager. This
house is new and well furnished and
affords every convenience and comfort.
The house is plastered, which ensures
quiet and repose for the tired traveller
and weary wor»er Spacious reading and
sitting room, supplied with the current
products of the press. Mr. and Mrs.
Nelson are popular hosts, giving that unreserved attention to patrons which
makes them feel at home. Sample rooms
in connection. Read the ad. in next
issue.   /    	
|>EATH OF EARLY SETTLER.
The death of Frank Xavier Richter at
Victoria on Christmas day removes one
of the first settlers iu the Similkameen
valley and one who was probably most
identified with its history and development. He had reached the allotted three
score and ten years, at last passing away
from the effects of heart trouble. He
was on his way to California accompanied by his wife but was taken seriously ill at Victoria, from which he never
rallied. Deceased was married twice and
leaves a large family. His home at Keremeos consisted of a large estate of meadow and orchard, also large herds of cattle and sheep and bands of horses. Land
held by the deceased in the vicinity of
Prineeton is valuable. The estimated
value of the whole estate is a little more
than a million dollars.
CHURCH SERVICES.
There will be but one service held at
7:30 p.m. in the schoolhouse next Sunday
by Rev. A. E. Bruce. Christmas carols
aud hymns will be sung. Service will be
held at Granite Creek next Sunday at
10:30 a.m.—Christmas celebration of the
Holy Communion.
Public worship and Sunday School in
courthouse, Sunday, by W. T. Mills.
W. Garrison, violin; W. Knight, piccolo ; pianists and other local talent will
furnish music at the masquerade ball.
Supper will be served in the Britton bl'k.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Superb  Weather adds to the
Pleasures of Holidays
and Festivities-
Christmas Trade was Good and the
Day Observed with Time-
Honored Customs.
Monday being a holiday the regular
meeting of the board of trade will be
postponed until the following Monday,
January 9th.
Mrs. Garrison and Mrs. Galletly have
collected the sum of $59,00 as a turkey
fund for the hospital ball, the former
lady also has sold some hundred dollars
worth of tickets to the masquerade.
W. H. Hagerman is spending holidays
visiting daughters in Rossland and Washington.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Watterman and Dolly,
left yesterday, the former for Spokane
aud the two latter for California on an
extended visit to relatives.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Holden spent Christmas in Hedley.
The Owl skating rink is running night
and day and has become a fashionable
resort for the youth and beauty of Princeton. Skating is the best exercise and
developer, sending the blood tingling
through all the body, giving that cherry
coloring which denotes perfect circulation and vigorous health.
O. H. Carle went down to Keremeos
on Saturday to spend Xmas.
Contractor Irwin is spending holidays
at home in Kamloops.
W. Garrison and N. Huston have each
added stylish sleighs to their liveries and
with a span of light-steppers, the 'bells,
beautiful bells,' keeping time to them,
a joy ride may be taken that beats the
odorous auto all to pieces. The roads
are perfect now for sleighing parties.
The world has a certain admiration for
a booster, even if his enthusiasm carries
him beyond the lines of exact veracity.
The knocker has been defined as a thing
which hangs on the outside of a door,
and when it comes to his obsequies few
are to be fouud to do him reverence.—
Province.
STITT-LUCAS.
The marriage of Mr. William J. Stitt
of Princeton to Miss Mary Lucas, of Belfast, Ireland, was celebrated on Tuesday
evening, Dec. 27th, the Rev. Arthur E.
Bruce officiating. The groom is well
known in these parts having been shift
boss on the big railway tunnel and latterly holding respousible positions in
mines.    A number of tillicums of  the
groom gave a charivari in the evening,
making much noise and hilarity with
implements of musick, notably the cow
bell, tom-jon and guzzy-fuzzy. The bride
last saw 'Jim' Stilt nineteen years ago
but her love never faltered through the
long, waiting years and she crossed the
'western ocean' that she might prove her
constancy. Star wishes the happy couple many years of happiness aud prosperity.
MUSIC AND DRAMA.
For years G. C. Eckhardt, the comedian of the Musical Eckhardt family, has
been recognized as one of the most versatile performers on the entertainment
platform. A, natnral comedian, his good
humor seemed to bubble over in whatever he did. Others in the organization
are Mae George, comedienne ; Matt.
Grieg, comedian, and Leona Repine,
vocalist. Princeton playgoers know the
Eckhardts to be clean and clever. The
program is refined, interesting and ful)
of innocent fun. This is one of tbe
Walker attractions you cannot afford to
miss. In the I.O.O.F. hall on Thursday,
Jan. 5th, 1911.
BEST OF HOLIDAYS.
Christmas day was duly observed by
religious services in both the Presbyterian
and Anglican churches, appropriate
hymns and sermons being given in commemoration of the world's greatest event.
Monday being the statutory holiday the
day was given over to feasting and social
enjoyment. The roads being in fine condition sleighing parties were plentiful,
one load with Piper Forsyth and his bagpipes eulivened the occasion with sonl-
stirring Scotch music. The weather was
inspirational, i.e., it made the heart glad
and thankful that we live in such a glorious elimate.
PUZZLES THE MEDICOES.
Charlie Day received word recently
that his brother D. O. had gone to Rochester, Minn., for specialist treatment after
experimenting with almost every remedy
fiom boiled sand to the most mysterious
concoction in materia medica. Thus far
his case has baffled all the medicine men
consulted. The surgeons at Rochester
have already disagreed in their diagnoses
and it seems that reliance now hangs
upon the revelations of the scalpel. D.
O. has many friends here who will be
very glad to hear of his recovery from
a long and most distressing stomach complaint.
The cigarette heart, moving picture
eye and boozey hand cause the rejection
of more than 75 per cent of recruits
offering for the Canadian navy. Are we
as a people drifting to premature graves ?
The most important elements in our
life are those which we, generally speaking, regard as trifles.

J
1910-1911-
The year 1910 is fast fading away
and in these  its  dying  hours it is
fitting  that   a   look  backward be
taken for the purpose of estimating
the relative  positions of 1 rinceton
|||iow  and  a year ago.    During the
year a  marked  increase  in  every
line  of   business  is   recorded and
there has been  a corresponding advance  in  land  and real estate values.    A tone of positive  optimism
is expressed by all who are engaged
in any   business  enterprise and by
those who are in  any   manner contributing to the advancement of tte
town and country.    Last year theie
was no railroad into  Princeton and
consequently small inducement was
held out to   promoters of industrial
enterprise.     Since,   however,    the
first train  arrived, just a year ago,
there has been a  steady advance in
everything   that   goes   to  make   a
country prosperous and 1910 marks
the beginning of a new era.    Without railway transportation the town
and district had  scarcely  anything
more substantial than hope to build
upon and everything was stagnant
from a business standpoint.
The year now  dawning. 1911, is
full  of promise.    New mining and
manufacturing  industries, the generation of hydro-electric power, the
establishment   of   a  cement works
and the inception of a smelter  are
all  within   the  range of certainty,
now that the railroad affords the all
needful transportation.    With these
leading   enterprises   in   the    foreground  there  are also many lesser
projects  which  will take form and
mature into producing factors, contributing to the general wealth and
prosperity of the whole country.
To all Star extends the sincere
wish that 1911 may be happy and
prosperous.
