Princeton coal is cleaner than wood for domestic use.
Better do than dream, better be than seem.
Development bf the varied resources tributary to Princeton requires capital—Scientific investigation has proveu vast
mineral deposits—Natnre has .supplied every requisite for producing the raw material ahd manufacturing it cheaply.

GOOD WATERSYSTEM
Reservoir Tanks on Western
Suburbs of Town
;j     to Supply.
Big Head of Water Sufficient for all
Purposes—Water Turned on
This Summer.
The most interesting bit of information
recently published was that- in reference
to waterworks in last week's Star. Additional datum is kindly furnished by E.
Waterman, manager, who hopes and expects to have the waterworksfi>n operation
this summer v/^
The pumping station will be located
on the Tulameen river, the water filter
ing into a large well, from, whence it is
pumped into two stage : reservoir tanks
with a capacity of about 50,000 gallons.
The tanks are served through a 5-inch
pipe, the water-being lifted 180 feet high:
An 8-inch main delivers the water irom
the tanks along Billiter avenue to Bridge
street, along it from bridge to bridge.
An alternative maiU-from the tanks will
be laid on Granite street to its intersection with Vermilion Av. thence along it
and connecting with the Bridge ^street
main. Thii system amply provides for
accident and will preserve a continuous
supply. On Bridge street there will be
about 180 feet of head, which will be
sufficient for present fire purposes.
Tbe stave pipe is wire wound and is
coated with . tar inside and out. When
completed Princeton will have as good
if not better waterworks than any place
of its size iu the province
ing at the moon. The wigwam and the
teepee have given place to stately residence and business block and the bum of
industay is heard on every side Gov.
Dewdney is a loyal friend of Princeton
although he is interested in another place
near by. He is broad enough and big
enough to recognize merit wherever he
sees it. His efforts to secure Dominion
public buildings in Princeton are highly
appreciated by every mentalifjp sound
citizen and it will be largely due to him
that the early erection of them willbe
undertaken. _.v
PIONEER HAS SEEN MANY
CHANGES.
Hon. E. Dewdney came up from the
coast last Friday and stayed until Monday. His large interests here requite
personal attention and this was one of
his occasional visits. Each returning
trip to Princeton unfolds new vistas of
the future greatness of this camp with
its vast mineral resources and central
situation. Gov. Dewdnex knows this
country from its priniefcii slate, whon the
savage cannibals wor/rqjgohole a good,
I fat white man with 'as much relish as
au epicure would down "turtle soup or
pate de foie gras, until now it has a railway and is modernized with high society
and religious culture. He has seen the
transmigration of the dangerous and uncouth barbarian end witnessed the transforming power of steam in displacing the
pack train and freight wagon. He saw
our picturesqe townsite when it was the
home only of the drummer biue grouse
and his family, of the owl and his lonely
toots, and of the sneaking coyote howl-
CONSULTS WITH HIS CONSTITUENTS.
;L. W; Shatford, M,P^P., accompanied
by H. A. Turner, the new road superin
tendent, spent three-orrourdays recently
in Princeton and vicinity. Their visit
was for the purpose of obtaining an ap
proximate estimate for the work required
and looking into the further needs o&tfae.;
taxpayers regarding roads and"■. trails.
The executive committee opthe board of
trade and the hospital committee, introduced by Ernest Waterman, conferred with Mr. Shatford?f'ithe'!'latter receiving every assurance of ''the' money
grant from the government and the
former promised certain road improvements, &c, which., when completed will
be of inestimabie benefit and add to the
public convenienc and value of property.
Mr. Shatford has done and is doing the
right thing by the people in recognizing
their just claims for roads, etc., the sum
of $100.800 being yr»t«-H f»r ,li» flllSafct
together with the supplementary amount
of jfci^ooo for bridges, or a total of nearly
fro^jTirys Mr. Turner, road superintendent, is well known here and Mr. Shatford is considered fortunate in securing
the services of so capable a gentleman.
Mr. Tnrrjer js an assayer by profession,
but has been deputy_governtnent agent
at Fairview. where his headquarters will
be.
HOPE. BEYOND THE MOUNTAINS.
Luke Gibson and George Wardle have
completed arrangements for removing
to Hope and will there establish^, livery
aijd_butcher business. Hope has a mild
attack ofboom tever and is looking forward to busy days this summer. With
the Great Northern, C.P.R. and Canadian'
Northern touching Hope it is bound to
become a place of considerable importance. It has good naturaliSjirroundings
for tourists and sportsmen and is near
the coast cities. Messrs. Gibson and
Wardle combine all the qualities for successful business management and leave
Princeton with the best wishes of a host
of friends.
As soon as the plans are received tenders will be called for the erection of
the general hospital.

was buried by Princeton Lodge on Sunday, a large number of brethren and
friends attending the last impressive riiei
of the brotherhood. Deceased came to
America when a lad from Ayr, Sco'-
land. He is said to have owned property
in Winnipeg worth $60,000 and his real
estate and mineral claims here would
probably amount to ' $8,000. He died
intestate.
DEATH CAUSED BY ACUTE
BKIGHT'S DISEASE.
' The sudden death of James Campbell,
miner and prospector, on Saturday last,
removes a famiiar figure from our midst.
He had been ailing for some time but
had never sought medical advice until
the night previous to his death. Of a
robust constitution he little thought his
illness was so serious and death so near.
Dr. Lazier was summoned and found him
suffering from acute Bright's disease.
Having done all that was possible to re-
REAL NAME MUST ACCOMPANY LETTER.
A communication has been received by
the Star, which cannot be published, because of the neglect of the writer to
affix name to.tbe article. Star will be
pleased to publish any letter ot public
interest so long as the simple rule of
appending the real name of the author
of the article is observed. The name attached to the article may be real or fictitious, it matteis not to the publisher, but
the author must accompany the letter
with his name as a matter of good faith
and for reference and protection in the
event of libel. Where personal reflections and insinuations are made Star will
insist on the writer's name being published.
PLAY BALL, OR ANY OLD
GAME.
It is well known that a lot of good ball
'timber' is simply 'running to seed,' as
the rubes say, for want of a little action.
Princeton has always had a baseball team
and if this season is allowed to pass without one it will sound rather badly for
the mineral metropolis of the Similkameen. It has been usual to celebrate
Victoria Day, (24th May) with a game
and other sports thrown in. It is only
a short time to the day and no time should
be lost. Boys, are you going to allow
your town to develop into a sort of
Sleepy Hollow?    Play ball!
flim-Dalby and A. W. Elliott of Vic-
Srjrfwere visitors to Princeton last week.
A guilty conscience needs no accuser,
the person having such a conscience is
always accusing himself or herself and
thinking they are the ones referred to.

audience. The rev. gentleman in his

PROPHET AND HIGH PRiEST.
James J. Hill, tbe great railway
magnate and financial wizard, is
something of a prophet, false or
true. Ever since Star first knew
him as purser on a flat boat running
into Fort Benton he has been prophesying, invariably painting the
future in glowing colors. He saw
many years ago the great possibilities of the Northwest and with that
happy optimism which has saved
him in many a financial squeeze
and discouragement, kept right on
'sawing wood' when other people
were busy knocking and calling
him all sorts of names. In the
beginning he was industrious and
economical and these qualities coupled with go6d, hard sense have
made him the railroad king of the
continent and great authority on
present labor and commercial problems. When Mr. Hill discovered
the 'Jimhilkameen' valley he was
quick to see its possibilities and at
once he determined to lay 'hands
on the railway charter which was
then going a-begging. His wisdom
has never been questioned on the
construction of a railroad into the
Similkameen and on to the coast.
The enormous coal and ore tonnage
alone to develop here was conclusive
enough to a man of Mr. Hill's foresight. He has built and is building the line without a dollar of
bonus or any governmental assistance whatsoever. If it were not
for the vast resources and the undoubtedly bright future of the Similkameen Mr. Hill's prophetic vision would have fallen far short of
expending some $14,000,000, the
amount already spent in construction. Now, if this country is good
enough for a man who is in no
sense a wildcatter, it ought surely
to be good enough for any investor
who is willing to give the matter
intelligent consideration. Mr. Hill
has private investments in Princeton district, outside of the railway,
and his good judgment cannot be
controverted by the most strenuous
knocker. Thus, and in many other
respects, he may be considered a
true prophet, high priest of progress and railway king.
ceiled on the editor's desk. It is
a welcome annual visitor to the
Star, containing much valuable
information in addition to the description of no less than 7,751 copper mines and copper mining companies in all parts of the world.
The mine descriptions are the same
as in the prececl;ing"%olume, except
that 800 new titles»-ll|iv$ been added, covering descriptions not contained in any previous edition.
The chapter of statistics containing
upwards of forty tables treating of
copper from almost every conceivable standpoint, has been fully revised and brought as nearly as possible to date.
Other chapters of the book, 24 in
number, treat of the subject of
copper from a great variety of viewpoints, including the history, chemistry, mineralogy, metallurgy and,
uses of the metal, and this section
ot the book also has chapters devoted to substitutes, alloys, brands
and grades, aud a copious glossary.
The plan on which the book is sold
remains the same as in the past,
the publisher sending the book by
mail, fully prepaid, to anyjaddress
ordered, without advance payment
of any sort and subject to approval
after a week's inspection. The
price is $5.00. Anyone interested
in copper, as producer, consumer
or investor in shares, should write
to Mr. Stevens for a copy of the
Copper Handbook.
