Coal and Ore to make Princeton Industrial Centre.
Clean Men : Not Party.   Let Conscience Dictate on Ballot.
It is evident that if Princeton ever advances it will not be by the help of Ross—Performances, not Promises, are what Voters now demand
from Representatives—Government Ministers are sworn to do justice to every citizen and section, failing in which they may be Impeached.
Vol. ix. No. 46.

ORE ATTRACTS ATTENTION.
Princeton District to the Fore with
Kineral Exhibits at Spokane.
The mineral exhibit seakfrom Princeton to the Spokane Fair last month has
had the effect of directing attention to
this district. Writing to a friend here
E. P. Wheeler ".tates that "he is confident tne Similkameen exhibit will eventually bring some capital into the camp.
One half of my time was spent in showing people the ore, as it was directly o\ -
posite the Okanagan display. The Roche
river group has a diploma which will be
sent to Messrs. Pouwels & Bonniver. I
took the twenty-five-dollar silver cup for
the best display for the Columbia Copper
Mining Co. There would have been one
more diploma given if the names of the
claims on Copper Mountain had been
given. Some of the i large pieces were
exceptionally good. W. C. McDougall's
specimens showed . up fine. I hope next
year we may get a collection that will
do credit to the camp and if they will
all take hold in time and get from 50 to
100 pounds of good specimens from all
the best showings, surely-as good an exhibit can be made as from any other min
ing section." It will be seen that Mr.
Wheeler is doing a splendid work for the
mineral owners of this section and is
deserving of every encouragement and
the gratitude iof-all interested in. the pro
gress of Princeton and district.

of Many Expert Pilgrimages
for Capitalists.
The Dolphin mine, Olalla, is expected
to resume opeiations soon.
A number of coal experts have been
recently examining the'North Fork of
Granite coal deposits. , A Pennsylvania
company is said to be negotiating for the
purchase of a portion of the property.
The deepest shaft around Butte, Montana, is at the High Ore mine. It is
2,900'feet deep, and the deepest level is
2,500 feet. Some ore. from the deepest
level assays 60 per cent, copper.
Tlie concentrator at the Montezuma

the winter. He will drift luto an old
creek bed where the indications are jjood'
for coarse gold.
The production of gold iu the Klondike this year will exceed that of 1907
by $500,000.
FEW RANDOM IDEAS
Socialism Compared with the
Other  Great Parties
in Politics.
Correspondent Thinks that Socialists
Agitate Reforms which Others
!•!««,> Carry Out.
Editor Star—Sir: All Socialists
talk nonsense. At least, that is the impression one gets by attending Socialist
meetings. I have a suspicion myself
that Socialists do not talk any worse nonsense than Liberal or Conservative
orators; the difference is that we have
heard the Conservative nonsense and,
saving your.presence, the Liberal rubbish
so often that we get the idea that there is
some sense in them, while the Socialist
jargon is so new that we do not take in
even what sense there is in it.
Certainlv there is much to be said on
che Socialist side. It is evidently not
right that most of us should work hard
for a living, while a few (not the most
useful to the world, and certainly not tb,e
most honest) accumulate huge fortunes.
It is evidently not right that some should
be fated by their birth to life-long drudg-
erg for a bare living, others to pleasant;
and easy work and large pay, and others
again to no work at all and more money;
than they can waste. If tne Socialists
have for this state of affairs a remedy that
is not worse than the disease, by all
means let them administer it: but would

Vote for the Good of Your Town. Your
Country—Vote for Burrell.
Electors should remember that there is
a secret ballot in this election. It is
secret. The votes cannot be traced as
they could when the numbered ballot
was used. A man can vote as he wishes
without being called to account afterwards. Remember this ! A secret
ballot. Elections in the east have been
notoriously crooked. Agents and scrutineers should be ever vigilant in the
polling station, never leaving it without
a reliable substitute. Every ballot deposited in the box should be carefully
checked up to the right voter on the list,
thus guarding against impersonation and
voting absentees or dead men. Unknown
voters are, unfortunately, liable to be
snspected and can fairly be challenged.
For any act of crookedness the penalty
is very severe. As it is a deferred election it will assuredly be an honest:
and fairly conducted poll by the officials
assisted by His Majesty's loyal subjects of
every and any political creed.
REASONS FOR VOTERS.
Burrell Stands for   the Interests of
the Province and All Parties.
The following are some of the reasons
why  Martin   Burrell,   the   Conservative
candidate, should be elected as the peo
pie's representative on November 12.
i.—He is a clean and patriotic Canadian of moreJthan a quarter century's
residence, with unquestionable character,
ability and sincerely honest in his desire
to represent the interests of all classes.
2.—He will continue to advocate the
just demands of this province for a readjustment of its subsidies which will, when
accomplished do more for,- the development of this pr^jn^e than any other
legislation that could be pasaed at
Ottawa ; in other words he will insist
upon '" better terms."   '
3-—He will demand fair play and .fair
treatment for all persons in the matter of
telephone accommodation. He belielves
that every voter and .taxpayer should
have their rights respected, receive equal
'privileges, enjoy the same courtesy and
command the same rights as a government supporter.
4-—Vote for Burrell and show your
disapproval of the tactics of his opponent
opponent in delaying the election until
after all others had taken place, thereby
taking an unfair advantage of the Conservative candidate.
5.—Sir Wilfrid Laurier has all' the
majority, if not more than he needs, for
honest government. Five able opposition
members from B.C. will accomplish more
than a Liberal contingent of slavish government supporters.
GOOD TIME COMING.
Liberal veterans and law recruits, if
any, are respectfully invited to meat any
time after Thursday next for the purposes
of reunion, reorganization and preparation for next campaign. After which a
Liberal Love-Feast will be held, presided
over by some Old Line Reformer. Lunch
will be served, consisting of cold crow,
nice tongue, chaw-chaw, Grit jokelets
and party hard-tack. A short program,
introducing political somersaults, campaign legerdemain, pyrotechnics, blue
fire, political hades and the white man's
burden—yellow labor. Music—Thetom-
jon, huegag, guzzy fuzzy, tinkling cym—'
bals, closing with the song "Rattle His
Bones." Beverage—Sweet oil.—J. ' *i\[
Wright, unpermanent sec. Princeton Liberal Association.
Manly & Swanson, with their accustomed enterprise, will give full returns
of the election in Yale-Cariboo ion
Great Northern bulletins on Thursday
night. Free lunch and everybody welcome.
A social dance will be given in the
Thomas Hall Thursday night. Come, and

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Your vote on Thursday, if cast
for Mr. Burrell, is an expression of
condemnation of the deferred elec
tion crime. Vote for Ross and you
sanction this wrong, which is destructive of your rights and liberties as a citizen.
rather to be commended for hiring
them when they were famished.
The fact of this being a deferred
election has taken all politics out of
it. It is now a question of which
is the better man. That is easy to
decide, for Burrell measures much
higher than his opponent as a
speaker, as a citizen, as a producer,
as a representative, and in his ability
to plead the cause of the people in
the House.
Ross advocates  giving bonus to
railways—Burrell opposes it.
The stock argument of Liberal
canvassers "we cannot get anything if we do not support Ross,"
is an old, threadbare and worn out
plea. A cause is in a hopeless condition when its supporters resort
to such base appeals. The very
nature of such argument is a reflection upon those using it. It has
all the elements of bribery in it
and proven bribery is a crime.
Besides, there is nothing the Dominion government can or will give
us as a town or district. The telephone line is built and Ross has
and will, if elected, continue to run
it in the same unsatisfactory way.
He has no use for Princeton as an
M.P., then why should the voters
here support him ?

Numbers of people have stated
that they will not patronize the telephone line so long as it is run in
the manner it now is. Burrell is
the only man to bring about reforms and cause an investigation
into its rotten condition. Eleit
Burrell and find out how your
.money is being squandered. Ross
will never call for an investigation

would implicate him.

No Conservative government has
taken advantage of deferred elections in Yale-Cariboo. Only one
real reason why Ross wanted it.
He knew he had done nothing to
make himself popular in the past
four years so he took advantage of
it to help him into parliament. But
voters are "onto" bim and will
mark their ballots for Burrell.
When Ross threw mud at Burrell he did not reckon on it sticking
to himselL Ross employs Chinamen who are not British subjects
and who have never borne arms for
Britain. The Hindus are subjects
of the King and are among his
bravest   soldiers.     Mr. Burrell is

FEW RANDOM THOUGHTS.
From 1st page.
they please explain it first, so that we
can understand just what sort of medicine they want us to swallow ?
The earliest reference I find to the
Socialist party is in I Samuel, 22 ; 2 ;—
" Every one that was in distress, and
every one that was in debt, and everyone
that was discontented "flocked to David's
standard.    It will be remembered that
the  Socialists of that day succeeded in
1
electijttg their candidate to the throne.
Socialists first appear in English history some 530 years ago, under one Wat
Tyler'; 1 know they were. Socialists,
because the most reliable historian of the
time sa3*s,: " Full two thirds of these
people knew not what they wanted." If
that doesn't describe the Socislist party I
miss my guess. These " wicked repels,";
at first demanded that the Government
should account for the money raised by
taxation. This, however, was felt\to be
quite too radical a demand, and those
Socialists were quite satisfied with being
released from slavery to their landlords.
This same question of slavery to landlords caused the French revolution and
the recent troubles in Russia.
In more recent times, Socialism, which
may be defined as ' the cause of the
poor,' has made wonderful progress.
What would our great-grandfathers have
said of Factory Acts forbidding the em
ploynient of children? or of free and
compulsory education ? or of laws against
'combinations in restraint of trade?'
All these are really Socialistic but they
were not produced by Socialist governments. ^
Even, as I believe all the other things
Socialists look for will come, but not by
any victory of the Socialist party. It is
the fate of that party always to be beaten,
yet always to force its rjolicy on its conquerors. The reason for this I know, but
may not tell, having written too much
already. Yours sincerely,
Nov. 5. Skiddoo.
