Princeton coal is clean and best for domestic use.
Suspicious mortals are precisely what they accuse others of.
Trade follows enterprise, and enterprise is the outcome of business tact and vigor—A general movement upward is the tendency of
the times and prospects are b.tter than ever—Princeton Coal and Land Co. making large addition to plant, other industries likewise.

ROADS AND TRAILS,
Member for Similkameen an|
Road Superintendent
on Tour.
Over Fifteen Hundred Miles to Supervise, Besides Big Payroll
of Workmen.
Last week L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., and
road superintendent H. A. Turner, accompanied by R. Boeing, of Hedley, made a
tour of inspection of the roads, trails and
bridges in Princeton district. A larjje
amount ot road work has been done inj
this part of the Similkameen, and it wa
fitting that a review of it should be made
by those responsible. As everyone knows,
Mr. Shatford takes the keenest interest in
the development and piogress of his constituency and has a constant pride in seeing that the wants of settlers, miners and
prospectors, as well as citizens of towns,
are attended to. In this he is assisted
by Mr Turner, whose executive ability
overcomes physical obstacles and solves
tnSny a knotty problem regarding th
route where divergent interests are to bfi
weighed. Mr. Turner is a courteous an
obliging official and knows his Similkf
meen from end to end.
Should Have an Automobile.
The amount of responsibility devolving
upon the road superintendent may be inferred when it is stated that he has 1,500
miles of roads and trails to supervise both
in construction and repair. He has a
large number of men in his employ and
lias the disbursement of over $100,000 iu
the various works subject to his oontrol.
It will be observed that his position is no
sinecure, travelling night and day and in
all weathers to attend his onerous duties.
To facilitate the performance of this exacting labor it is proposed t__.pr_.i_p ah
automobile for  the  superintendent,  not
ell.
only here but in other districts as
Tbe proposition commends itself to all
who give any thought to the necessity of
covering such a long mileage with prompt
ness and speed.
' Good Koads Taylor,' Apropos.
Mr. Shatford will endeavor to secure a
larger appropriation for the coming year.
He realizes that to keep pace with the
growing requirements of the Siinil •: ameen
increased expenditure is an absolute
necessity. And he is fortunate in having
a minister of public works who is in sympathy with his own ideas of progressive-
ness. ' Good Roads Taylor' is synonym
ous with progress and development. The
transprovincial trunk road is the minister's monument. It will open a short
route from Princeton to Vancouver and
give access that the railway companies
are slow to recognize.    It is expected to
be open for travel in the early part of 1913

portions of the Sinrlkanj&en. ^They
were the first to take an automobile
to Voigt Camp, demonstrating that it will
"not be-uUU'y moons before Copper moun
tain '."ill be conquered by the ubiquitous
motor. A large amount of new road work
is projected for this section next year. A
great deal has been done this year in
Princeton and vicinity. Roads, bridges,
trails and sidewalks are evidence of the
member's forethought and good will, aud
merits the approbation which follows
honest, conscientious service.
RAILWAY POINTS.
The V., V. & E will be at the fifth and
last crossing of the Tulameen this week.
The difficulty re tracklaying across the
Roanie mineral camp has been satisfactorily settled to all concerned.
It is not definitely kjlown the extent of
yardage :equired at Welldo,. but the
ground has been jnirchased for a station
site and sidetracHc. The site for a bank
has alsq been reserved at Welldo.
Premier McBride has pressed upon the
Kettle Valley people the necessity, of
reaching Princeton with their line, and
surveys will shortly be made down the
Otter and Tulameen river for that purpose. /Mr. Demuth is said to be assigned
to this wCik. " '> ^
TOWN AND DISTBICT.""
JDfae Princeton Coal & Land Co. began
yesterday grading Fenchurch avenue to
their choice residential property overlooking the town and rivers.    For prettiness
of location this ground is withouta peer.
■J* rs_j_ / WW \
Now the music of the hafnimer resounds
from every part of the town.    Who said
Princeton  would not be a city of 10,000
souls whQi afext censusjj_a/ taken ?
sjr &*, _>^ij " f G O^Sl*.
What about the band?   Where is Billy
Knight, ex-leader?   Professor, the people
are longing for that silver-toned cornet.
Mesdames Bysouth & Turner will open
a millinery store in the French block,
not a short order counter, as erroneously
stated in the Star of last week.
As a sure indication of the growth of
Princeton, the school population has
doubled in about a year, the present
number on the roll being fifty. Miss McCaffery will soon require an assistant.
The annual meeting of the Ladies'
Hospital Auxiliary will be held in the
court house on November 2, for the purpose of electing officers and transaction of
other business. All members are urgently
requested to attend.
Indian summer, glorious and inspiring,
for the past few weeks. These are the
days of the sere and yellow leaf bringing
to mind the approach of winter and
beautiful snow.

Goodly Land.
B.C. Increases from 178,637 to 362,-
768—Princeton in Short Clothes
for Awhile.
The census of Canada, recently taken,
is somewhat disappointuijf, due to the fact
that many forecasts/of the result gave
more than eightynillions, whereas there
are but "],\oojboo of population. The
figures for the towns and villages are not
yet available, only the larger cities and
provinces being given. Princeton, according to estimates made by local statisticians, will have a population of abont five
hundred fouls, which. including'me 1m-
mediate district, will bring the population toabout 1,500. Followiug is the.
report ot tne census given by the Hon.
Martin "Burrell, Minister of Agriculture :
Ottawa, Oct. 19.—The provincial census figures for 19:1 were made public today. They show a population of about
7,100,000, which number will be slightly
increased when the full returns have
been received. Four electoral districts
have not yet made complete returns, viz:
Cumberland, in Nova Scotia, Regina and
Baltleford, in Saskatchewan, and Yaie
Cariboo, in British Columbia, which is
estimated to give a population of 70,006.
The population for 1911, less the districts
not reported, is 7,081,869, as against
5,37X,3I5 >n 1901. The population by

THE GREAT SCENIC ROBfE.
F. W. Glover, C.E., in chaiVeSrf the
government survey patty Bacating the
transprovincial automobile road, has some
very fine photo views taken along the
route. The magnificent scenery along
this route will make it a favorite for tourists. Among the views is a very striking
one showing pack horses crossing a turbulent stream on^a cedar tree. Surefooted
cayuses for mountain work perform wou-
derful feats in climbing and fording-
streams. Mr. Glover killerl a large 500
lb. black hear with prime hair, and will
add it to his many trophies of the cbase,
using it for a rug in his library. The
meat was delicious.
MINES AND MINING.
Knight & Day pulled out on Friday
with a pack train of supplies which they
are taking to the Lucky Pair, Whipsaw
camp. They expect to be at work all
winter on their promising property. Two
more claims were recently located by the

Pair group, which points to increasing
confidence in this camp.

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
October 25, 1911,
TWINKLE LITTLE STAR.
Editor Star—Sir : I hear that the Star,
which has for some time past been interesting many people, has,, owing to recent
changes in the atmosphere, gained greater
brilliancy and is becoming a familiar object in other places besides that in which
it was first discovered. Those in authority
have named it the Similkameen Star.
Long may it shine ! May I propose a
' Poet's Corner' in the constellation and
start it with the enclosed verses? I am,
sir, yours faithfully,
A Star Gazer.
EVENING.
Twilight is come ;
The day is gone ;
The workers go home ;
Their work is done.
Soft fall the shadows
Across the hills ;
Night steals on apace,
For so God wills.
.-     A  f- _a   <A-7* QVv^?ft
sleep; WTSaryTOiTers,   j
Shut fast your eyes ;
Perhaps you may waken
In Paradise.
The moon smiles round
On the world asleep;
All is calm—not a sound «
On the silence deep.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
THE PHILOSOPHY OF LirE-
The best remedy for the blues,' depression and discouragement is to do some
kindly, noble deed.
Tbe world is hungering for truth and
light.   Why are churches empty ?
Truth is indestruct ible ; a lie destroys,
exposes itself sooner or later.
What parent would afflict a child with
disease and the bed of pain ? And yet
some peculiarly pious people accuse the
Great Father of sending disease and affliction while praising him for love and
mercy. How caii a fountain send forth
sweet and bitter water, or how can a
divided house stand ? God is all good,
and cannot be the author of doubt, fear,
disease, pain, evil of any kind.
If we would be loved we must love.
If you have a grudge forget it. The
sour, unlikable person is always trying to
get even
If you are not big enough to overlook
an affront ^froni the ignorant, you put
yourself on a par with them.
Look for the good in a person and never
search with a miscroscope for flaws or
faults.
If you cannot boost, don't knock.
Lying is a disease with some persons
and is so natural for them that, like lep
rosy, anyontS may detect it by their appearance.
Humility; one of the greatest virtues,
yet rare in these days of boast and con
ceit.

THE GOVERNOR GENERAL.
The Duke of Connaught, new
Governor General for Canada, has
taken up the reins of authority laid
down so recently by his eminent
predecessor, Earl Grey. Canadians
have warmed to the Duke already,
not because of his royal blood and
relations, but because he is a manly
man, one of the people. I. ke his
brother, the late King Edward, he
is gifted with that great good sense
and genial manner which wi
every time, not only from kings,
princes and governors, but also with
the community of mankind. The
opportunities for doing good by example and precept are innumerable
to a governor who aspires to something more than the mere functional performance of duties. He is the
first gentleman in the land, and, as
such, his elevating and uplifting influence among the people is, or
ought to be, exercised to the full.
He will discountenance all snobbishness and servility which a certain obsequious class with more
money than brains will endeavor to
make prominent at social events
With such me 1 as Dufferin, Lome
and Grey, the Duke of Connaught
will add lustre to the history of the
Dominion and strengthen the ties of
kinship which bind the empire to
gether. Star bids the Duke of Connaught and family sincere welcome,
and may their stay ou rich Canadian
soil be.one of unalloyed happ;ness
INDIAN RESERVATIONS
It is well that a <"■ ovement has
been already made by tne Conservative Association of Enderby looking
toward a settles, ent of the Indian
reserve question, now so long a bone
of contention and friction between
the federal and 'provincial governments. Some of the best laud iu
the province is tied up in Indian
reservations, unproductive and, in
some cases, a positive hindrance to
progress and development. It is
with a view to throwing the lands
open to public use and proper cultivation that agitation is now begun.
Many thousands of acres of good
land are held by the Indians, some
of it in the vicinity of cities and
towns, balk ex-tention of these growing places, other large tracts are
held in agricultural sections u'ntilled
yet surrounded by the highly cultivated f„r*_s of the whites. Some
reserves are held by lease Irom the
Dominion government, but the
terms and conditions are such that
enterprise is thwarted or discouraged, and it would be much to the
advantage of the country if these
lands were turned over to the leaseholders and an absolute title given
for^consideratidn. Then the land
could be sold to small holders and
made productive and useful. The
reversionary right held by the province in these lands has been in
dispute by the Dominion, but, now
that both federal and provincial
governments are friendly, there will,
no doubt, be found a satisfactory
solution of the trouble.
LOCAL AND GENERAL

L- Cooper, working in the Princeton
Coal & Land Co.'s mine, was injured by
_ blast hanging; fire last week and was
taken to the hospital. It was feared that
his eyes had been seriously injured, but
examination by Dr. McCaffery dispelled
any apprehension, the patient suffering
more from shock and powder burning.

It will supply _ long felt want.
The big mass meeting held by Gladstone local, at Fernie, on the 13th inst.,
after hearing the report of the delegates,
sent to the convention at Lethbridge, unanimously endorsed the action of the convention. Just what the action of that convention was has not been made public by
the miners, but the action of this local today is taken as an additional indication
of the near approach to an understanding
between operators and miners. There
were 700 to 800 miners at the meeting,
and there seems an evident desire to make
heavy sacrifice of what they demand as
their lights on the part of nearly every
one.
Geo. E. Winkler, a'n oldKtirae Prince-
tonian, now of Victoria, is/a moving spirit
in the Cascade Mining/Co., its property

Last week about 2 500 14-foot holes it
the Mother Lode mine, owned by the
B.C. Copper Co., near.Gre/n-wood, were
filled with dynamite Xnd' exploded by
electricity. More than Vi tons of dynamite were used and the blast broke down
_53r?*than 100,000 tons of ore and rock.
This blast is said to be the greatest in the
history of underground mining.

SURROUNDING
PRINCETON
The New City With The Payroll
Give you the opportunity for one of the
SOUNDEST INVESTMENTS
In British Columbia.
_.:_■:_.;_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_>
CITY  LOTS  ARE  BEING OFFERED  FOR
SALE FOR THE FIRST TlflE.
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LANDS WILL GREATLY INCREASE
Here are some of the Reasons :
East Princeton is surrounded by huge de=
posits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important flinerals.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a lig=
nite coal of the best quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred em=
ployees. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For transportation, East Princeton will
have, in the near future, the Great Northern
and the Kettle Valley lines, both of which,
will pass through the townsite.
East Princeton is beautifully situated on
the Similkameen River, with an abundance
of water power available. The new city has
every facter for growth into a big industrial
centre.
It presents a rare opportunity for investment.    Get full particulars immediately.

SCIENCE AND INVENTION.
Stbri .izrNG Earth Around Posts.
Patent post holes have long been humorously referred to in connection with
machines for grinding smoke, left hand
wheel barrows, and other imaginary in
ventions. It has remained, however, for
a Budapest inventor to make what is probably an important improvement relating
particularly to post holes, seeking to thus
preserve the wood of the posts. Instead
of applying preservatives to the wooden
posts, railway ties, sleepers aud other
wood exposed to the action of the earth,
he treats the earth which surrounds the
wooden post in such manner as to destroy
all insects, germ and fungus life by soaking the earth with a suitable sterilizing
liquid. The process is termed ' Peristeri-
lization," and is claimed to be especially
useful in rural and other remote districts
in which it is inconvenient to obtain wood
which has been treated with creosote of
similar preservative.
A Fireworks Auxiliary.—In patent,
No 1,003,411, to Haden Herbert Bales, of
Ashcroft, B C, we find an airship frame
with a battery of pyrotechnical rocket
cylinders, adapted to operate as an auxiliary to the main propelling mechanism.
Means are provided for adjusting the
position of the rockets to regulate the
direction of the discharge, and also a
selective mechanism for firing any particular one or all of the rockets, as occasion
may require.
An Opportunity for the Farmer.
The profitable cultivation of basket willow in the United States and Canada is
an opportunity that should not be over
looked by farmers who are anxious to add
to their income by the cultivation of a
crop on land that is now lying idle. The
demand for basket willow as an article
for manufacturing basket ware and furniture is constantly growing, In this connection it is interesting to know that the
United States is a very large purchaser of
basket willow rods from France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Austria
while there are millions of acres of waste
or undeveloped lands in America capable
of producing enough besket Willows to
supply the world. There is an annual
importation of approximately one miliion
counds of basket willow rods ready for
the basket makers' use. Approximately
four times this amount is imported in
the form of,' manufactured basket| ware
and willow furniture. The total value of
this material is about $300,000, which
might as well be paid to Canadian- and
American farmers, if they knew how to
grow the crop successfully.

Coalmont
A legitimate
||In vest ment If
Today
MOST PEOPLE want to invest their money where
they are reasonably sure of a good return. If tbe
investment is to be made in real estate there are several
things to be considered : The situation of tbe town, climatic
conditions, transportation facilities, and primarily the
amount of the monthly payroll. When these questions are
asked regarding Coalmont they may all be answered to the
credit of the town. The situation and climatic conditions
are ideal ; the main line of the V.,V. & E. railway runs
through the town on its way to Vancouver.
The Columbia Coal & Coke Co. operating here have practically an inexhaustible supply of a pure bituminous coal.
They are installing immediately a plant which will handle
2000 tons of coal in 8 hours—this means employment for between
800 and 900 men all told.
Figure out this payroll and see how many coal mining towns
in B C. can beat it.
In a very short time Coalmont will necessarily have a population of from 2000 to 2500 people. Will this cause real estate to rise?
We all know the answer. Then take the opportunity that presents
itself now—buy first hand and reap the benefit of this increase.
The prices and terms are such that anyone can afford to inves
to the extent of one or two lots. They range from $175 to $550, on
terms of % cash, balance over 18 months.

BIG COAL MEASURES
(Continued from last issue)
Appraisai, and Tit_,bs.
The value of 160 million tons of bituminous coal in situ in your property for
one coal seam 4 feet thick should be not
less than $60 per acre, and anthracite not
less than $180 per acre, exclusive of agricultural and timber values, if crown
granted.
These are most important facts, absolutely essential to the appraisal of the
property towards industrial enterprise. I
These 18,194 acres, or thereby, are an
excellent and adequate commercial assemblage for colliery operations, capable
of producing a daily output of 1,000 tons
for about 640 years.   A}~l?uJ '
The Nicolo Valley Coal & Coke Co.,
Ltd., for an area of 2,661 acres received
$240,000 in cash $500,000 in stock of the
operating company, being over $90 per
acre in, cash, or a little under $280 per
acre in valuation.
Taking the capitalization at $2,000,000
at 12J5| per cent, gives $250,000 per annum,
and taking an output of 1,000 tons daily,
or 250,000 tons annually, at a profit of $1
per ton, would produce $250,000 per
annum, or the capital recouped in eight
years, adding another year for contingencies, making niuejvyears, or say altogether, at the utmost, a'period of ten
years.
Taking the estimated tonnage of 160
millions during the lifetime of the mine
at $1 per ton would give a clear profit pf
$160,000,000, or $80 return for every dollar invested, which would be 8,000 per
cent.
The assembled area of 18,194 acres reported on are held under licenses and
partly under lease from the provincial
government, which includes the coal
rights and surface with unpurchased or
unleased timber thereon.

demonstrating the true facts as they can
readily be proved to exist, in so far as the
observations enable these to be defined.
There are several unique locations on
the property for elegant townsites and an
ideal one adjoining No. 8 Tunnel on out-
,/ crop of No. 3 Coal seam 8ft. thick, close to
| railway, on Lot 244, the suggested key of
the situation for developing and opening
up this coalfield, technically and economically by following and mining the coal
seams from the 'grass roots,' in their de-
descending order consistent with market
able value.
If opened up in this way judiciously,
there should be no question as to excellent financial results from an operating
colliery consistent with a good market-J
able price at colliery, thereby becoming
a profitable enterprise of considerable
potential wealth with promising future
possibilities in assuring a good income
for several generations beyond the
present.
That  there  is  in   the   country  ample!
capital  ready and more than  willing to j
invest   in any   property  showing profit
able values from definite development is
beyond   question,   therefore   we   should
give every person so disposed the assur
ance, as far as practicable, that not only
while  invested  in  industrial  enterprise,
but after he has embodied the results of
that enterprise in  property, he shall be
sure in the enjoyment of ii.
The surrounding values of any commercial importance demonstrated by
actual ' collier}' operations have been
made at Princeton in the colliery of the
Vermilion Forks Mining and Develop
menrJCo..which, adjoining your property,
with the excellent indices from ihe
numerous coal outcrop and boreholes,
makes it practically apparent that your
property possesses the necessary perman
ency in warranting investment of capital
adequate to operate them as going collieries, and, as efficiency and economy
along the lines indicated is rapidly super
seding the crude ot antiquated and ex
pensive methods of the past, new properties, like this one, seem eminently adapt
ed for the installation of modern methods
at the outset.
The data and reasons for favorable conclusions have been carefully laid before
you in the text of this report, promising
very profitable returns of $1 per ton of
coal of 2,000 lbs., or a return of $80 for
every dollar invested, which is 8,000 ptr
cent., and would result in redeeming the
original capital in a comparatively short
period of about ten years.
These  profits can  be augmented from j
agricultural  pursuits and fiom townsites
and timber.
These coals are high class lignites of
Oligocene Age of the Tertiary Period,
land, from .ievelopment, may be found as
bituminous and anthracite in places where
they come under the volcanic influences.
Thev are of very good qualities for
blacksmithing, domestic use, gas-making
and steam raising, burning freely with a
partially clear flame requiring a moderate
draught, leaving not any great per cent-
ages of brown-yellowish ash
It is therefore evident that your pro
perty is excellently situated and of sufficient commercial magnitude with its
transportation facilities, its economical
raining', of the four coal seams therein,
with several unique locations for elegant
townsites thereon, and, if not the best, at
least one of the best coalfields inland from
the Pacific coast for many purposes, showing the necessary warrantable permanency as an excellent investment of capital,
promising very profitable returns, and
assuring that coal is king and will be for
a considerable period the premier industrial asset of the province, and is therefore
absolutely indispensab'e for over a cen
tury at least—notwithstanding the  pro
gress of oil as fuel—until some inventive'
genius discovers some commercially possible way of supplanting the use of coal.
In my judgment your property is extremely valuable because of its largp area
and its being the key to the situation of
the most valuable area of the Princeton
coalfield, from its west side and proposed
location on Lot 244, as described in the
text.    Respectfully submitted by
ALEXANDER FAULDS.

report made for the Princeton Collieries
Co , owners of some 18.000 acres of coal
land in this basin. A I»aidlaW, Box 319,
