Once used always used : Princeton coal.
LKAMKN
After clouds, sunshine; after storm, calm; after hope, fruition.
Copper has regained its normal position among metals and is certain of continuous demand—Princeton is the center of a great copper
bearing district and the mining industry will focus here—Coal, iron, copper, lead, zinc, silver, gold and platinum among the products.

Copper, 16 50.
At Voigt camp the B. C. C_pper Co. is
making good progress with development
work, a force of between forty and fifty
men being employed. Drilling below
the first level on No. 14 is going on with
satisfactory results. The main tunnel on
the east side is driving toward the ore
body on 14 and will be some 2300 feet in
length when completed, It is the largest
ore mining tunnel in the country and
will accommodate a double track when
the mine is producing. First class ore is
uncovered and most favorable conditions
point to extensive operations

Voigt, drove in their private car to Voigt
camp on Monday and saw the important
mining operations there. Some of the
visitors have pecuniary . interests in the
district and are pleased with the general
outlook.
J. F. Coats, engineer for the Princeton
Collieries Co., has a gang of men at work
doing assessments on their extensive coal
holdings.
A. E. Livingstone and Jas. F. Hixson,
of Portland, Ore., and C. F. Daniels, of
McMynnville, Ore., were visitors here
during the week and were shown around
by J. F. Coats.% They were much impressed with the evidences of mineral,
particularly of the coal showings. It is
not improbable thatthese gentlemen may
become investors here in which case thev
will be frequent visitors.
Fred KefFer, miuing engineer for the
B.C. Copper Co., J. E. McAllister, gen
eral manager, and E. G. Warren, smelter
superintendent, are at Voigt camp, having driven from Greenwood in their auto

One of the largest mining deals consummated in the Similkameen district
has been announced in the Hedley Gazette of this week, the buyers being the
Hedley Gold  Mines Co.,  the sellers L.

ard, L. G. MacHaffie,, H. A. Turner, the
price, $150,000.

week and is planning operations with
Newton creek placers.
*  NEW BANK QUARTERS.
Choice business location is necessary
for banking institutions and the Bank
of Montreal through its manager, B. L.
Smith, is fortunate in having secured
commodious quarters in the new premises
being erected by P. Swanson. The bank
will occupy the ground floor space at
the corner or__f__ge streei and Harold
av. 25x55 feet. A brick vault and other
uptodate bank accessories will be found
here. The bank officials have confidence
in the future of the Similkameen and are
prepared to do their share furtheiing development of the district. The bank expects to be in its new home about the
first of Octobei.
PipifCETON WATERWORKS.
' ^^C__ Princeton Waterworks Co. installed
^iboiler at the pumping station recently
which now places them in a position to
meet ordinary^ demands and also cope
with emergencies The water supply of
Princeton is excellent in quality and in
volume and pressure sufficient to fight
fire and answer irrigation purposes. In
addition to the main pumping station on
the Tulameen river an auxiliary pump
and connections will be maintained on
the Similkameen. There are few, if any,
towns of the size of Princeton as well
protected and provided with water. Its
value from a sanitary consideration alone
is inestimable and it is up to citizens to
encourage the waterworks company in
every possible way. Consumers in a relatively small town must be limited in
number and that affords a good reason
for everyone becoming a patron. As
the town grows shares will increase in
value and profit and this kind of investment is usually safe and' considered 'gilt
edge.'
INTERPROVINCIAL ROAD.
Road Superintendent H. A. Turner was
in town this week and announced that
work on the interprovincial road would
begin Friday when W. A. McLean of
Hedley will establish a camp and begin
actual grading on this most important
and necessary highway. This link will
bring Hope within three or four hours
motor run from Princeton and will be pf
inestimable benefit to the whole section
of countiy it traverses end the province
generally. About forty or fifty men will
be employed by Mr. McLean who has
had much experience in road building
and is considered just the man for the
position, Mr. Ingram will attend to
the resident engineer duties for A. E.
Cleveland, consulting engineer.
DOMlNIONDAYDOINflS
The Day We Celebrate, National in Aim, Imperial
in Sentiment.
Attractive Program with Prize List
$1000.00—Invitation Given
to Everybody.
The public meeting last Friday night
to discuss Dominion Day celebration
matters was well attended and the proceedings were characterized with patr iot
ism, enthusiasm and snappy suggestions.
W. C. McDougall occupied the chair and
Perley Russell was secretary. The following standing committees were appointed :
Finance—J. D. Andtas, A. E. Irwin, T.
Day. -
Racing—W. Garrison, C. Summers, H-
H. Thomas, N. McFadden, J, Gellatly.
Sports—W. D. Young, T. Dignan, W.
Wilson.
Citizens' ball—-T. Dtuuimond, J. L.
Huston, G. G. Lyall, C. Willarson.
Trap shooting—J. J. Priest, E. Waterman, A. E. Irwin.
Reception—All citizens.
Marshal—J. Gellatly.
The finance committee have met with
most encouraging success, citizens almost
to a man subscribing liberally toward the
celebration fund. The list is still open
for donations, to which no one is exempt
and all residents of the town and dis
trict are cordially invited to contribute
some amount and share both in the
letter and spirit of the festal occasion.
The program is not ready for publica
tion but it is known that prominence
will be given horse racing and baseball
the latter being assured a prize of $100
by voice of the meeting. Then there
will be a bucking contest, pony race for
boys and girls, ladies' and gentlemens'
and cowboy races, slow race, &c. A full
line .of usual athletic sports will be presented including if possible hose reel
race and fire brigade competitions.
Piizes amounting to $1000 are expected
to be awarded. The Princeton band
under the leadership of Prof. Gibson will
provide music and lend that eclat without which no celebration is comp ete.
The invitation to come and fraternize
and celebrate goes out to sister towns and
communities, to every individual, and to
our cousins across the imaginary line a
hearty welcome is assured. Come tilli
cums and shake off dull care.
THE BIO BEE.
The Big 'Bee' was well patronized and
a lot of good work accomplished toward
putting the grounds in shape for Dominion Day celebration. The committee
thank the public for their generous re
sponse to the invitation to the Big Bee
and they are also thankful for promises.
If there are any persons who feel that
they were neglected or overlooked in the
invitation they still have opportunity to
contribute toward the good work and
help along a project that will be of gen
eral benefit to the whole district. This
bee has been such a splendid success that
it is proposed to have another Big Bee
and clear the grounds of small brush for
park purposes. In this work men and
boys will do the heavy work while the
ladies will lend their presence as an incentive to the good work. Meantime
the clerk of works, Tommy Day, will be
pleased to receive applications for stock
it being optional for them to pay for
same in labor.
NEIGHBOR EDITOR VISITS.
A. Mv.£raw, editor and proprietor of
the Hedley Gazette was a visitor to
Princeton last Friday and Saturday and
observed the general progress both here
and at East Princeton He speaks en-
couragingly of Hedley and predicts increased mining activity in that famous
gold camp. Of the Hedley Gold Mines-
Co. the 'Major' had only words of praise
and points with pride to their generous
treatment of the town and helpful policy
in the community. He drinks deeply of
the cup of inspiration which flows from
golf, the fountain of real ecstasy and true-
pleasure, and should the Major be translated to a sphere in his country's service
far above the grovelling, grinding labors
of editor a host of brethren and fffends I
will say 'well done, good aud faithful,
enter into rich emoluments and may the I
sun of affluence and luxury shine upon
you-evermore !
NEW HOTEL BUILDING.
The foundations of the Great Northern hotel are nearly finished and the

to carry additional storeys when required.
A plate glass front on Bridge street and
Harold Av., marble vestibule and tile
flooring are some of the striking features
of architecture, the whole building corresponding with modern equipment,
wired for electricity and telephone service in rooms, hot water heat, baths, toilettes, drawing ro. m, all finished with
beautiful coast fir. Twenty guest rooms
will have private baths. Every comfort
aud convenience has been planned for I
the travelling public who will receive

PARK, RACECOURSE  AND ATHLETIC GROUNDS.
The purchase of forty acres of
ground by the Princeton Racing
& Athletic Association for the purposes of sport and recreation is in
line with the spirit of the age. In
all communities, towns and cities
provision of some sort is made for
racing, ball games, athletic sports
and recreation and Princeton is not
to be an exception to this general
rule. In laying out the forty acres
an 'eye to the beautiful' must not
be overlooked, to be repented of
later on should the natural beauty
of the grounds be defaced or destroyed. The trees are nature's
splendid gifts to parks and in carrying out improvements it is always
the part of wisdom to spare the
tree. If the landscape requires artificial touches of improvement it
should be done only by the practised hand and if possible after mature deliberation and consultation.
Princeton's first athletic grounds
and public park are intended to
supply a long felt want, affording
not only the space required for the
specific objects named in the preamble of agreement and articles of incorporation but as. a place of resort
and recreation, for public meetings
and demonstrations, as free to the
ipfant in its carriage as to tbe
mayor of the town in his autocar
Water is an urgent necessity for
beautifying the. grounds as well as
supplying the public thirst and that
of animals. If an agricultural exhibition is held this fall an abundant supply of water will be required. The Association will, no
doubt, give this matter early and
due consideration. Finally, it is pf
the utmost importance that all deeds
and documents or papers of any
description should be vised by a
lawyer before ratification, thus minimizing disputes and legal tangle.
Every stockholder in the A ssocia-
tion should see that he is amply
secured as in any ordinary investment and the principle of 'one man,
one vote' should obtain as a preventative of any  monopolistic ten
dency now or in the future. As
the value of the property immensely
increases'the dangers of litigation
resulting from flaws also increase
and no safeguard should be omitted
in the protection of investors and
the heritage of the 'people in this
public requisite or utility.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The rise in the price of copper is
one of the most significant signs of
returning good times and expansion in mining that could be hoped
for. There is every prospect of
mining on a large scale in Princeton district and with it the building
of a smelter will be necessary. Iu
the large development operations
now being carried on by the B.C.
Copper Co. at Voigt camp there is
everything to suggest the foundation of a great industry in this
vicinity. There is also coal mining
to be developed, from which a large
and permanent industry is expected
to grow when the railways reach
the coast cities. No one has any
occasion to repine if development
and progress occasionally lag, the
future is radiant with splendid possibilities.
The political atmosphere of Europe smells strongly of powder
these days, giving Star some uneasiness lest its advocacy of universal peace should have been in vain.
There is hope, however, that something will happen £o change the
attitude of that sausage loving, fire
eating ruler, the Emperor of Germany, who kicks up more row than
all the others combined. ' His temper must be curbed and as the Merritt board of trade seems to have
certain occult influence with governments it might be wisdom to pass a
resolution asking the German government to give its mad ruler a
dose of ducking stool thrice daily
until he came to a proper sense of
his duty toward mankind. This
suggestion is not prompted by any
spirit of jealousy because the Merritt board gets appropriations for
public buildings but simply to emphasize the fact that any government will concede a point or two
if they are asked witb urgency and
force. Universal peace will be so
much nearer when public buildings
are given Princeton and an uptodate service granted.
Scenery attracts tourists and tourists spend money—what about our
great scenic attractions ?
We see some of the all devour-'
ing American trusts stigmatized as
an octopus. If, may it be asked,
the American male is octopussian
in his nature, is the sissification
of the American girl less probable
during leap year ?    We think,not?

SOME STRAIGHT SHOTS.
Editor Star—Sir : In reference to an
editorial in the Coalmont Courier of May
20th we would inform the writer that he
is entirely mistaken ; that it was not an
Englishman who wrote the letter of May
15, but a native born Canadian of United
Empire Loyalist stock, who is not
ashamed of his forefathers, they having
carved a nation out of a wilderness and
fought shoulder to shoulder with the
British troops. The Coalmont editor
says that Canadians are tickled to get a
cut at an Englishman. We brand that
assertion as a cowardly falsehood. Who
were our forefathers?—but English, Irish
and Scotch. As to 'libelous remarks,'
we are not in tbe habit of saying things
we cannot prove. He does not seem to
like the shoe string hint, but the cap
seemed to fit. The slander of the Courier on South African troops finds an answer in the speech of Lord Roberts and
British history. If this miscalled editor
will give the name of the Englishman he
referred to and name the time and place
we will be most happy to accommodate
him. Instead of broadswords a bottle of
Scotch would suit him better, and as to
'brains,' well, his writings show how
sparingly he was dealt with. It is a dirty
bird that fouls its own nest and if the
Courier writer would take good advice
he would move up among the Eskimo
and take his rattletrap plant along.
Thanking vou for printing my last letter
and hoping you will find space for this,
I am yours truly,
Canadian Common Sense.

BE A BOOSTER
Do you know there's lots o' people
Settin' round in every town,
Growlin' like a broody chicken,
Knockin' every good thing down?
Don't you be that kind o' cattle,
'Cause they ain't no use on earth,
You just be a booster rooster,
SM& Crow and boost for all you're worth.
If your town needs boostin,' boost 'er ;
Don t hold back and wait to see.
If some other fellow's willin'—
Sail right in, this country's free.
No one's got a mortgage on it,
It's just yours as much as his,
If your town is shy on boosters,
You get in the boostin' biz.
It things just don't seem to suit you
'  And the world seems kinder wrong,
What's the matter with a-boostin'
Just to help the thing along?
'Cause if things should slop again'
We'd be in a sorry plight;
Yon just keep that horn ablowin'
Boost'er up with all your might.
If you know some feller's failin's,
Just forget 'em, 'cause you know
That same feller's got some good points,
Them's the ones you want to show.
' Cast your loaves out ou the waters,
They'll come back" 's a sayin' true,
Maybe, too, they'll come back 'buttered'
When some feller boosts tor you.

'TT'HE probabilities of success in real estate speculation are in pro=
■^ portion to your faith in the possibilities of a town or country.
Princeton has possibilities"=some say her possibilities are illimitable. It
would be a blind, unreasonable faith, for one to invest, say, in the great
Sahara desert or inside the Arctic circle. It is different with Princeton
to mosttowns==the position, the possibilities, the resources all are prima
facie, self=evident==a blind man can see them with his mental eye.
Opportunity rarely knocks more than once or twice at your door and
lightning never strikes twice in the same place. This analogy illustrates
how carefully one should exercise sound judgment in the when, how and
where of investment in real estate. There is land for everyone if the
other fellow does not gobble more than his share. Remember, single
tax is coming, and then land values will jump skyward. Princeton is
the center of coal, ore and placer mining. Good grazing and agricultural
land. Beautiful climate, fishing, hunting. Two railroads will afford
transportation. Electric light, waterworks, hospital, etc. Write the
Princeton Coal & Land Co., or better still, come and see for yourself

Princeton Coal & Land Go.
