Railway Activities.
The political and business atmosphere
having been cleared of ali fog by the
lesult of the recent elections the Simil-
Jtameen and, in fact, the whole of British Colnmbia, are active with railway
projects. Many millions of dollars will
in a few years be spent in the building
of these necessary adjuncts of progress
and prosperity. There is no reason why
this province should not be the leading
one of the Dominion. It vastly excels
any other in natural resources and has
a long seaboard. The V., V. & E. is
about to forge its last link in the line to
the coast, thus affording outlet to the
immense mineral wealth of the Similkameen.   Truly the fututre is roseate.
Line Is Inspected.
The final act in the drama of railroad
construction, begun some four years ago
on the V.,V. & E. between Midway and
Princeton, was the examination of the
road between Keremeos and Princeton
last week by H. A. K. Drnry, Dominion
government inspector of railways. His
duty is to report on \he safety and solidity
of construction generally and of bridges
in particular. He will make a very favorable report of the portion inspected,
having expressed satisfaction with all
that he saw.
Well Constructed Road.
The building of the V..V. & E. has
been carried out with a thoroughness
which makes it one of the best roadbeds
on the continent. Its grades are the
best obtainable, withstanding competitive rates by the leading transcontinental lines. Iu its perfect construction
there is evidence of intention to verify
the statement made by President J. J.
Hill a year or two ago at a Winnipeg
banquet that he would build from there
across the prairie to the Pacific coast by
the most direct route with low grades.
The V.,V. & E. is a link in the proposed
direct route. As a tonnage producing
route it is without a peer, crossing a
fertile wheat belt for 860 miles, then
through the Rocky and Selkirk mountains for some 400 miles with coal and
ore producing tonnage all the way.
Apostle of Low Grades.
: As the apostle of low grades and big
loads Mr. Hill has circumvented toboggan slides. What he cannot ciawl over
quicklv and handily he goes through.
With the elimination of a hump or two
between Oroville and Midway the V.,
V. & E. will have the lowest mountain
grade in B.C.
Hope mountains have never been considered impracticable for railway purposes, but they served the purpose of
being the politician's bugaboo. There
are three lines ready to negotiate Coquihalla Pass and whether they build conjointly or separately through it is of no
concern to the public. The nearest route
to Vancouver, the great seaport of the
west, is the commercial chute for the
grain of the prairies and the mineral tonnage of the mountains. The completion
of the Panama canal in 1915 will witness
the beginning of a stupendous ocean
borne trade from Vancouver. Railway
presidents see it and act accordingly.
Rightofway Agents Coming.
Following is from Vancouver World :
"The Great Northern now has agents
out purchasing the right of way on the
proposed route from Abbotsford to the
Hope Mountains, and from Princeton to
Hope Mountains."
This was the pronouncement made this
morning by Mr. John R. Snapp, general
right of way agent of the Great Northern
railway. Mr. Snapp has just returned
from Chicago, where he was in consultation with the headquarters' staff of the
Great Northern.
The result of the conference was his
getting instructions to get right of way
purchase agents out at once along the
trail location lines. These men are now
busy, and in the same territory are the
engineers who are making the final observations that will determine the exact
location of the line and its grades. The
trial location lines and the field notes of
the engineers were enough to satisfy the
department heads of the Great Northern
that a feasible route had been found and
there is every indication that the construction gangs will be close on the heels
of the final survey men.
The line fiom this end now is complete
from Vancouver to Abbotsford. It is
evidently the intention of the company
to commence construction from both
ends of the gap now between Abbotsford
and Princeton. The rich mineral veins
of the similkameen seem at last likely to
be able to send forth their wealth which
has so far been tied up for want of transportation facilities.
The New Order of Things.
It is expected that tomorrow will see
the first regular train in Princeton. It
should have been here seven years ago.
Its arrival, though heralded with no dis
play, not even the Board of Trade taking
cognizance of it, is the signal for the
onward march after years of marking
time. From this time all commercial
progress must date ; the beginning of
the era of development assumes form ;
prosperity results from accessibility to
the treasure fields of ore and coal and
the foundations of a city are made pos
sible and highly probable.
The contractors have all completed the
work of grading, the coal spur being the
last to be finished. Steel will be laid to
the Vermilion Forks Co's tipple in a day
or two. The station yard is complete
with extensive sidings an 1 tbe building
of the station is now in progress. All the
accessories of a large station and yard
are being provided. A separate building
for the use of engineers on construction
west of Princeton will be erected on
Vermilion Av., near the cave. The
site of the round house, supply depot and
large circular track for turning whole
trains, as well as engines, are located on
what is locally known as Waterman's
Flat. Here the transformation almost
amounts to desecration, for the beautiful
sylvan glades, so often the resort of picnickers and cooing parties, have been
cleared away and burned, making room
for rails and timber and the other inartistic materials required for railway construction.
Expert Engineers.
The engineering staff, officials and
contractors of the Great Northern employed here in recent years have been
and are, gentlemen with whom it is a
pleasure to do business and have social
intercourse. Many thousands of dollars
have been disbursed here by them, to the
benefit of the whole community. In
Messrs. Kennedy and Baldwin the Great
Northern have two expert pathfinders
who cannot be excelled in any country.
While it has been difficult to procure any
public information from engineers it is
due not so much to self restraint as the
amenities which their high positions
impose. As chief of the engineer staff
here Mr. Kennedy is held in high esteem
by all subject to his orders.
LORDS REJECT BUDGET.
Britain in the Throes of Constitutional
Deadlock Just Now.
The house of commons by a vote of.'
349 to 134 passed the resolution of premier Asquith to the effect that in rejecting the government's budget bill, the
house of lords has committed a breach of
the constitution and unsurpassed the
rights of the house of commons. Arthur
Henderson, leader of the labor party in
the house of commons, announced that
the government would have tne whole
hearted support of the laborites. Premier
Asquith announced in the house of commons that the government had 'advised
the king to dissolve parliament and that
his majesty had accepted the invitation.
The premier added that if the liberals
were returned to power, the first act of
the government would be the re-enactment of all taxes for which provision was
made in the budget rejected by the house
of lords.
GREAT NORTHERN ACTIVE.
The Spokesman Review of recent date
contains the following regarding a new
Great Northern route to the coast. By
some this toute is thought to have some
relation to the V. V. & E. now building
to the Coast. Time alone will reveal
what this relation will amount to.
Twisp, Wash., Dec, 1.—A. F. Whitcomb
chief engineer of the western division- of
the Great Northern, with headquarters
in Spokane, paid the Methow Valley a
visit in connection with the Great Northern survey party, which has a survey
completed from Pateros, on the Columbia, up to the Methow river to a point
ten miles above this place. After making
a careful examination of the survey, the
country in general and the conditions
prevailing with regard to the continuance
of the work, Mr. Whitcomb said he had
instructed that the survey be continued
about ten miles further up stream, to
early winters river. When that point is
reached, the party will work back on the
survey, making permanent location on
the line. The party, of about fifteen
men, will be occupied until spring with
the work outlined by Mr. Witcotab.
Mr. Whitcomb admitted that a party is
locating a cutoff from the main line in
the vicinity 'of Blue Stem, running
through the Davenport country to the
Columbia river. With the survey of the
Great Northern Skagit river line completed up the west side of the Cascades
and the survey from the main line across
the Columbia and to a connection with
the Columbia river line, in conjuction
with the survey now being made through
the Methow valley connecting the two
surveys, the conclusion forces itself
many declare, that the Great Northern is
at last taking steps to carry out its intention of long standing to build a new
main line from Spokane to the Coast.

■ THE RALtWAY AND ITS DEVELOPING POWER.
iAn event which marks a' new
era of progress and development for'
the SimTTkameen is at hand.-"before another week is efotfed Princeton will have been linked up with
the., iso/oqo   miles   of   railway in
Canada .and    the   United  States.
Regular train service with all the
advantages of speed and comfort
for the passenger, the prompt and
safe handling,-t>f**ft'eigiht, besides the
telegraph, e-spness-arad*mail-connection which*' "will' supersede the "old
ana" "'slow' s'tyle^of communication.
The . days of the stage coach and
big-freight,, wagon are numbered.
Time last ofi thei>'skinners' will soon
haVe'laid down his whip and uttered
his'nnal curse at fh'e'strihg of horse's
struggling up grade or around some,
dangerous curve. The glamor and.
luring 'elements which enter- into
frontier life of mining camps' disappear with the ;adwan'ce of the iron
horse.. Wanderlust takes ou a new
form and instead of the kicking
cay use the elegant railroad ceacb
is-- employed. ■ •-..     • J'" ■" " '■•■
The coming of theV.,V. &*E'. (o
Priqcetou has already given a notable impetus to coal mining. Where
one miner constituted the payroll
for years in supplying the local
demand for coal a hundred men will
shortly be employed. Besifle'"t'he'
Vermilion' Forks 'Co', which is the
pioneer, there are three other companies which are preparing to operate. ••iTbesef include the compan-y
which" will manufacture 'coke -from
the North' Fork coal'.'; It fs'Within
the. limit of every reasonable possibility ;that two or .three .thousand
coal miners' will find employment
here in a year 'or two. Then there
are the adjacent 'ore 'mining c'arhps
which areT bound to contribute immensely to 1 the general payroll of
this district. Cement, brick, ilime,
paint, gold and platinum dredging,
lumber and many other industries,
including, rancpiqg^and,jr.uit gr'ow,-
ing will begin and expand in the
wake  of the railway, j
The yast and varied mineral resources of Princeton district are
perhaps, the richest in the world.
The great Dr. Dawson, geologist
and author, after a yisit.ta this .-field,
said that unless geology-had'gone
altogether a:sttay this district wobld
prove to be' brie'of the richest in the
world. Other geologists agree that
it is a most interesting and promising fie'e for :r.vest?g*V,jo*.'.    Er.oir-1
has been done to convince the most
skeptical person that this is a field
oflering , exceptional .^jnjducemept^
for capital. One thing is certain.
The V., V. and E- would never
have been built but for the tonnage
its directorate foresaw in and about
Princeton,! '
He would be a bold man  to predict the growth of Princeton in the
next  few years.    The v., V. & E.
will  continue  construction  to  the
coast via the recently much disputed
Coquihalla  Pass.    The Kettle Valley-is-not a 'hot air' line, but a real
and  tangible   enterprise  that  will
afford  access  to some splendid ore
bodies  along its  route.   This road
must touch'Princeton as a matter of
business policy and  in  redemption
of a political  promise.     With-^Ee
record of a  hundred' western mining camps and  towns before us, no
one  can  deny  that the outlook is
exceedingly rosy and encouraging.
The;.,.railroad • has  made all things
possible   in   a   commercial  sense;
Nature has  provided a' tn'Ost'M'brtM
able   place   to   build a e'it$ on and
the   western   spirit   of   progress, is
dominant   in,,tb,e,p/eopj£,.and iiji,tjbje

ment and lessens that (dignity'vt'hhih

the- bitterness of political family
quarrels, such as J.P. hos ou hand,
but it absolutely refuses to touch
upon purely personal matters. A

The Lords have rejected the
budget and a constitutional crisis is
now on. in England. The Lords
ar'e' a! relic of feudal times and, it is
believed, the only hereditary body
of legislators in the world. Star
has no desire to 'butt in' on thjs
question, (it-h-as*had enough politics
recently), but. if the real aristocracy
of England .and the pseudo aristocracy of Canada will excuse, it
would venture to suggest that the
Lords'b'e abolished and reconstituted
on modern- lines. Star would go a

A supplement to page four is issued
owing to changes in coal notices.
Locally, the belief is  general that  the
Great Northern will build the  new main

informotion that has "leaked"'from  for
mer surveyors, that  a  line  could  build
£^>otn  Spokane  to tidewater,    traversing
Prhe Methow vally,  eighty  milee shorter
than- any  present route  at  a cost  of a

That the First Thought Mine at Orient
is one of the richest producing properties
in the Northwest haslong been  know to
mining men, but definate  information as
to the value of the gold-bearing ore taken
out  has  never   been  available   for   the
public.     It is owned almost  entirely  by
Pat Burns, the Canadian cattle king, who
is content to take his earnings  from the
mine and is not anxious to sell any share
of it.    A sedulous guard is maintained at
the mine to prevent outsiders examining
it.    Last year the  net  earnings  of the
mine, in the sum of $500,000 for the year
were distributed to the shareholders

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Good intentions will not help a man
along the way if he takes the wrong
road.
It is impossible to build up character]
on the ones you smash. \
Those who criticise the lives of others
forget that they hav^'faults too, but they
cannot see them in their eagerness to
denounce
Once it is known that a person practices deception then is all influence for
good departed. A deceiver cannot respect himself, although he thinks he is
clever.
To say that any evil is necessary is a
contradiction in terms.   How could anything not good   be  good or necessary for'
humanity?   Yet there are seme who say
there is necessary evil.
Beware   of those   who   are   oily   and
smooth to your face but behind your back
are always ready with the hatrtner.   The!
good  Book classes   them  as 'wolves in |
sheep's clothing,'   the sneakiest of all'
animals.
The woman  who tries to conceal herj
Age is old enough to know better.

MINES AND MINING.
I The Crows Nest Pass Coal Co. has recently completed a new steel tipple at tie
Michel, B.C., mines, which has a capacity of delivering iooo tons of coal per
hour, the largest single tipple on the
continent.
Pitchblende is valued for its uranium
aud radium contents. It is found in vein
Vmatter in stringers varying from knife-
blade thickness to several inches. In
color it is pitch black, velvety black,
brownish sometimes with a grayish or
greenish cast. It is not s:ratcheu by a
knifeblade unless weathered. It is believed to be plentiful in the upper Sitni'-
kameen and prospectors should be on the
lookout for it.
