Rivers and creeks of Princeton District* Gold Bearing
When envy and gossip get busy keep your front door locked.
Princeton is a Division point of the V.,V. & E. and will be its western terminus during: construction^ probably two years, toward
the coast—It will also be the junction point for Ashnola branch and is converging point of roads and rivers; it is the centre and hub.

RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Pace is Slow, yet  Steady, and
Grading is Perceptibly
Nearing End.
Jimhillkameen   Valley   has   Plenty
Tonnage and Only Lacks
the Capital.
Eighty per cent of the grading between
Hedley and Princeton is now completed.
Engineer Kennedy was in town last
week inspecting construction work on
the V.,V. & E. and looking over the
ground relative to future operations.
He has the plans and specifications for
the station to be erected at Princeton and
will receive tenders from local builders
for its construction as soon as the'rails
arrive heie. He went up the line to
Welldo and from there made reconnai-
sance of the country up Granite Creek as
far as the North Fork coking coal mines
He had nothing definite to state regarding the time when the rails would reach
Princeton. Tracklaying from Keremeos
is expected to begin when there will be
no hazard from high water.
The grade has reached a point near the
Similkameen bridge where it must cross
the river and to do this a temporary
structure for the passage of dump cars
will be made. The big cut is quickly
enlarging in response to explosive and
muscular forces directed by the Austrian
ganger. After high water grading will
begin on the townside of the Similkameen.
The location of the roundhouse and
wye near the tunnel indicates that Princeton will be an important terminal point
during construction of Ashnola branch
and the main line up the Tulameen—it
will also be staff and divisional headquarters during building and subsequent
operation.
Grading the various spurs and side
tracks necessary for handling tht coal
output of the V.F.M. Co. will soon begin.
It is reported that double shifts will be
put on one or two of thejheavier cuts on
the line between Princeton and Hedley.
This is done to obviate any delay when
tracklaying is in full swing.
DELAYS TRACKLAYING.
The probability of extreme high water
during June increases as the cold weather
drags along. Very little snow has disappeared from the higher altitudes and
all that is required to fill the rivers to the
brim is a hot sun for a few days. A sudden and prolonged spell of hot weather
will produce very high water any spring
as there is no lack of snow and glacier
with which to feed it. The debris which
accompanies high   water is a source of
great danger to bridges and it is the fear
of it which is causing delay in tracklay
ing. No false work for bridges could
withstand the swift running Similkameen
^b'elirihg trees, logs and rubbage, hence
the wisdom of delay is obvious.
OKANAGAN FALLS NOTES
From Our Critical Correspondent.
Okanagan Falls, May io.—Mr. R. B.
Bassett and Miss M. Mr.Lellan have
joined hands in wedlock and after ashort
honeymoon up the lake will take up residence at the Falls. We all join hands
and give a 'tiger* for Dick
The Hotel Alexandra, under the management of Messrs Hine & Arnott, has
taken on a new coat of paint and is looking and doing well.
Our genial and obliging postmaster,
Jno. McLellan, has put an addition to his
house but he did not make the money
to pay for it out of government road
work.
• W. J Waterman har begun to change
the road from north to south side of
creek, or from bad to worse.
A. J. Smyth is planting 3000 fruit trees
at Peach Cliff.
Telephone Superintendent Stevens is
erecting several tents preparatory to more
substantial buildings, on the new town
site, Kaleden, on Dog Lake.
D. Gillespie has had a spring cleanup
in his orchard. Judging from the bloom
on the trees, egad ! but the neighbors
will have many a good feed of peaches
and cream this year, as in former years.
Y. C. Kitely and Tom Shuttleworth
are bucking rock on the road, and now
we hope not to be thrown out of our rig
while riding over it.
Our smiling member and his right
bower paid Ok. Falls a visit and started
Big Neil on the new Green Lake road.
But you must be a Yank or a Bluenose
or you'll not get work, for no settlers
and but few voters need apply.
MINING REPORT.
Chas. Camsell, Geologist, is expected
to arrive soon to complete the work he
began last year. In'the summary report
just issued by the Department of Mines
it says, referring to the Tulameen river
section, "that it is the only district in
Canada where platinum gravels have been
worked on a commercial scale. Railway
facilities for this section are projected,
and with the solution of the transportation problem it is expected that this por
tion of the country will be actively developed. The present work is in anticipation of this." Platinum is also found
in Granite Creek and the Similkameen
river. r *4'j
D. O. Day is coming around right smart
after one of those oldtime attacks of
'williamousness.' He has faith in the
sand cure and his numerous-friends hope
he will not be disappointed.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Snow at High Altitudes Has
Scarcely Felt Rays of
Old Sol.
People Passing to and fro and Current Events of the Day Here
and There
Big works in preparation for the cutting of lumber are being carried out by
the Similkameen Lumber Co.,J. F. Waddell, manager. A full description will
appear later.
Angus Lamont nnd Hughie Campbell
were« in town Monday from Ashnola,
looking hale and vigorous and still active
though nearing the wise man's allotted
span of life. Angus still farms on his
old homestead, which he sold to Louis
Hill, President of the Great Northern,
some two years ago. Both gentlemen are
old Cariboo goldhunters and are patiently
waiting on the railway to make another
big strike.   Good luck, boys !
Mark Leavitt, hunter and trapper, has
wound up his season's operations and
leaves for the east on a short visit. He
reports the snow all gone in the low valleys, but at least three feet of it remains
up to about 3500 feet above sea level.
Bears, as with all else, are backward this
year, not yet awakening from their long
nap. His partner, Rich Ryder, will stay
in camp for a fortnight and will interview bruin with his derringer when he
pokes  his nose out of his winter's lair.
J. Edward Kennedy, C.E-, is going to
the coast on a well deserved holiday of
about two months. He will take in the
great Seattle Exposition, which is already
attracting large numbers for the opening
on June 1st. Mr. Kennedy is employed
on V.,V. & E. construction and is very
popular in fraternal and social circles.
He is son of J. H. Kennedy, C.E., chief
of construction on V.,V. & E.
R. S. Ross, teller in tbe Bank of Commerce, received instructions recently to
report at the inspector's office, Vancouver. Not quite a year a citizen of this
'no mean city' Mr. Ross farewells at a
time when his fine business and social
qualities have begun to ripen into that
true appreciation which is born of real
worth and geuuinity. He is followed
with a load of good wishes. Mr. Ross is
succeeded by W. C. Brown, of the branch
in Victoria.

Keremeos has issued a Victoria Day
program of the celebration which it will
hold on that day. This is the recognized
annual gala day of the Keremeosians and
they entertain their visitors to the best
that is going on occasions of this kind.
Good, clean sport will be put on the field.
The attractions being such as to induce
the youth and beauty of the valley and
■ many old ones to attend. Keremeos,
with its lovely swards, blooming flowers,
growing orchards and luxuriant alfalfa
meadows, is always interesting and inviting. Quite a ryimber from the Upper
Similkameen expect to attend.
VICTORIA DAY.
Next Monday being a statutory holiday
the following proclamation is issued for
the guidance of the public: "We, the
undersigned, have decided to close our
stores for business on Victoria Day, Monday next,  24th inst.   A. E- Howse Co.,
PROVINCE IS ALL RIGHT.
Governor Dewdney, who is expected to
arrive in Princeton any day, has recently
returned from the old country. He says'
that this province never before loomed
so largely in the eyes of the British in -.
yestor. Inquiries with regard to every
class of industry are being received and
immigration into the province'should be
heavy. He says that B. C. fruit was a
favorite in the London market but it was
hard to procure as, apparently, dealers
disposed of it elsewhere.
TULAMEEN NUGGETS.
From Our Own Correspondent.
Tulameen, May 14.—W. J. Riddell returned this week from Bunyan City.
Jack reports that the pine cone crop is
good.
Chas. F. Law and wife of Vancouver
arrived 3'esterday. He intends putting
iu a placer diamond drill on his property
at Slate Creek and will also continue development of the Similkameeu Mining
and Smelting Co's property on Bear
Creek, where another good strike of ore
has been made, similar in character to-
the Swede group, lately bought by the
Granby Co.
J. Lang, 'Sailor Jack,' came down from
Bear Creek today.
Wm. Flager has bonded the Shamrock
group on Rabbit Mountain for $20,000.
It is thought that Vancouver people are
behind the deal.
Geo. Benny of Coutlee is registered at
the Hotel Otter Flat.
A party is expected here this week to
look over the coal, with a prospect of
buying it.
W. H. Holmes and gang are gradually-
putting the road in shape.
Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Henderson returned
from Vancouver last Tuesday, Messrs.
Tingley and Batstone bringing them
down from Otter Valley. Mr. Henderson.looks and feels a little better.
H. Allison, and W. H. Webb pf Mer-

BEST ROUTE POR CANADIAN
NORTHERN ROAD.
.It is no longer a matter of doubt
that a railway will be built down
the North Thompson to Karcloops
frbm the Yellowhead Pass in the
Rockies. There are said to be
three lines anxious to build by that
route, two of which, the G.T.P.
and the C.P.R. already have termini on the Pacific coast. In the interests of the people and the development of the country there can
■scarcely be too many railways.
Competition is a great factor in the
life of any people, indeed, it is the
most effective spur to enterprise and,
without enterprise there is decay.
The Canadian Northern, the moving spirits of which are Mackenzie
& Mann, is one of the three lines
alluded to and will be a welcome
addition to the railways of the province.
After reaching Kamloops it will
follow the line of least resistance
and most tonnage. That line runs
through the Nicola valley, noted
for its mineral, agriculture and cattle raising, then up the Coldwater
to its junction with the V.,V. & E.
^crossing the Hope Mountains via
Coquihalla Pass, along the Fraser
;River to New Westminster and
^Vancouver. If it acquires running
■powers over the V.,V & E. it will
in no wise militate against the interests of the people. This route is
perfectly feasible and workable with
its little more than two per cent,
over mountain grade. It will be
expensive construction through the
Pass, with its six thousand feet of
tunnelling, but a glance at the map
will show that it is the most direct
route to Vancouver and will mean a
saving in mileage and time of ransit
far exceeding the alternative route
clown the north bank of the Thompson and the west bank of the Fraser
to Vancouver.
There is an affinity of interests
between the Canadian Northern and
the Great Northern and it seems
highly probable that these eornpa-
; nies may join forces from the point
of juncture westward. In any case
the provincial government should
not consent to any request for aid
from the Canadian Northern people
until they guaranteed the route
would serve the Nicola and Similkameen valleys. In the rumored
union of the C.N.R. andG.NR.j
to construct to the coast it can only',
be earnestly  hoped that it will be I
SLOW RAILWAY CONSTDCTION.
The importance of railroad transportation in opening up new districts can scarcely be overestimated.
Until the Coast-Kootenay railway
was projected some ten or twelve
years ago the Similkameen was a
sort of no man's land with a few
white and yellow men scattered up
and down the rivers and creeks digging for the ever-alluring gold.
Granite Creek, alone, had attracted
a large number of goldhunters, due
to the strikes of gold and platinum
in the placers of that section. But
no lasting interest was taken in the
Similkameen until it was announced
that a railway would be constructed
through it. Then the potentialities
of the district loomed largeV Geologists and mining men investigated
the presumed vast mineral resources
and found there was no exaggeration in the extent and variety of
nature's wealth.
Capital followed the prospector
in developing and proving coal and
ore deposits, until in the Princeton
section alone there has been an estimated expenditure of over three
millions of dollars. At Hedley
some five millions have been" spent
in -actual mining equipment and
development. Keremeos, Olalla.
Bear- Creek and other points have
had an outlay of another two millions in mining and agricultural development, making a. total investment of ten millions of dollars.
This amount represents the inspiration given out from the proposed
construction of the V.,V. & E. to
the coast.
If the railroad.had been built at
the usual pace there would undoubtedly have been many more
millions spent, but the tardy policy
of the railway builders discouraged
investors, with the result that there'
is less and less capital flowing this
way. Princeton is years behind in
progress; instead of an incorpor
rated town ot say two thousand in-'
habitants, it musters only a few
hundreds. N° °ne bas l°st confidence in the future of the country
but all condemn the shadow cast
over it by the dalliance of ttr railway owners.

The very latest is that Duncan Ross is
going to start a newspaper in Vancouver
The World was not subservient enough
to Boss Kelly and the Liberal machine at
the last election, having some opinions
of its own and some- regard for public
opinion, so Ross is to be set up to com:
pete with it. The Star wishes Duncan
all the success he deserves, namely just
what he got at the last election. But has
the Liberal party really sunk so low that
it can not get a better man than Ross to
run a paper for it?
The divorce law of Canada is thought
to be rather lax, or abused—compare it
with our neighbors!

GOODBYE! GOD BLESS YOU!
I like the AngloVSaxon speech
So straight in all its dealings,
It takes a hold and seems to reach
Way down into your feelings.
That some folks deem it rude I know,
And therefore they abuse it.
But I have aever found it so:
Before all else I choose it.
I don't object that men should air
The Gallic they have paid for,
With 'Au revoir,' 'Adieu, ma chere,'
For that's what" French was made for ;
But when a crony takes your hand
At parting to address you
He drops all foreign lingo and
He says: 'Goodby! God bless you !'
I love the words perhaps because
-When I was leaving mother
Standing at last in solemn pause
We looked at one another,
And I—I saw in mother's eyes
The love she could not tell me—
A love eternal as the skies*
Whatever fate befel me.
She put her arms about my neck
And soothed the pain of leaving
And though her heart was like to break,
She spoke no word of grieving;
She let no tears bedim her eyes,
For fear that might distress me ;
But, kissing me, she said good by
And asked our God to bless me.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
EXPOSITION NOTES-
Seattle Hotel and Restaurant Keepers
Fledge Themselves Not to
Raise Prices,
Seattle, Wash., May 14.—Visitors at
the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition,
which opens at Seattle, June 1, and
closes October 16, will be able to dine to
their satisfaction at the city's leading
cafes and testaurants at normal prices.
To leave no doubt as to the working out
of this commendable spirit on the part of
Seattle's caterers, they recently met and
voted as a body an agreement binding all
restaurant, cafe, grill and hotel nen to
maintain the present prices throughout
the Exposition time, and no member of
the organization to which the caterers
belong will be allowed to take advantage
of the opportunity to reap additional
profits, as has been done, despite protests,
in previous exposition cities.
Some enthusiastic antiquarian at the
national capital has gone back three mil
lion years to fish up an exhibit for the
Exposition. . A letter from the government exposition agent describes it as a
'tuumtnied dinosaur, or trachodon,' buf
even if it is worse than that, it will be
an acceptable addition to the other old
timers who will gather b> the lakeside
when the gates open on June 1st.
