ROADS ARE ALL RIGHT
Member for Similkameen and
Officials Inspct Roads
of District.
The    T.P.R.' will Aid   Mightily in
Mining Development Beside
Bring Tourists
Probably the most striking things to
impress a stranger visiting the Similka-
nieen district and princeton are the good
roads and streets observed at every turn.
Tourists in their cars from Washington
and other parts of the United States are
emphatic in their praises of the highways
over which they come. They want to
know, with their native inquisitiveness
and wideawake curiosity to profit from
information obtainable, why the Similkameen has so much better roads than their
states afford. It is all in the system.
The minister of public works, the representative of the district In the legislature
and the road superintendent with his
foremen, all work with the end in view
to produce the best results with that
economy which always characterizes genuine effort and conscientious service. Mr.
Shatford, M.P.P., personally inspects the
roads, and takes pains to see that the
public interests are protected and guarded.
His animating desire is to render unto
the people the things that are the people's, to give full measure for the confi
dence they have reposed in him and to
carry out a progressive policy commensurate with the vast resources nature has
endowed the district. He is ably assisted
bv the road superintendent, whose tact
and business ability are recognized and
whose personality fit him in a marked
degree lor the problems confironting his
office when opposing interests have to be
dealt with. Taxpayers have no com
plaint within reason in the improved
streets and new sidewalks, or in the con
sttuction of roads to mining camps, the
large general appropriation of $190,000
being expended on roads, streets and
bridges judiciously and with prompti
tude.
Transprovincial Fine Highway.
L. W. Shatford, M P.P.; J P. Forde,
provincial government engineer, and H.
A. Turner, road superintendent, were in
here ou Friday on an inspection trip
through the district. They motored from
Penticton, and after a visit to Coalmont
and Tulameen returned to Princeton.
Fror. here they made the first auto trip
over the completed portion of .the transprovincial highway west of town, and inspected the work now being done under
Foreman W. A McLean. They expressed
themselves as being well satisfied with
this work, and also with the condition of
all the  roads 'throughout  the   district,
which  show an enormous  improvement
recently.
The Simikameen district is fortunate in
having some of the best roads in Canada
already, and many miles more in pros-
,pect, and if our member, Mr. Shatford,
keeps up the good work of getting large,
appropriations for ns, and Supt. Turner
continues to expend the money so well,
we will veiy soon have as good, if not
better, roads than any other part of Brit-1
ish Columbia., which also means that our
roads will be among the best on the continent. We are all doing our best to get
railway connection with the coast at an
early date, and the progress and advance
ment of our district depend largely on
this railway connectiou, which fortunately is now in sight; but good roads are
fully as important as railways, and the
completed transprovincial road, or T.P.R.,
as it is now being called, will help us
fully as much, and, perhaps, considerably
more, even than the long looked for rail
ways, as it will mean tl"at the wealthiest
class of toUrists will soon be passing
through our town in their hundreds and
thousands every year, and these people
will-necessarily leave large amounts of
money here. Very few of us yet realize
just how much benefit the good roads
policy of the government means to us.
but as we look into the matter more
closely we will be the readier to appre
ciate what our local member is doing for
us in the securing of such large appropriations for the Similkameen district,
and we will also be the more anxious to
urge him on to still greater endeavors in
this line; because, though we are pleased
with what he has already done for us, we
should not be so satisfied as to sit down
contentedly forever, but should, like
Oliver, keep on asking for more, until
every part of our district is fully opened
up to settlers, miners, prospectors and
others, so that we can take full advantage of the natural wealth so plentifully
scattered around.
NEW ILLUSTRATED PAPER.
'The Limit' is the name of a new born
weekly illustrated newspaper published
in Vancouver, and its first number seems
just to have reached the limit in mechanical and editorial makeup. Whatever its
mission mav be it will be judged by the
power of the pen and the reflected life
of today in clean and clever illustration.
Some of the Vancouver papers are critical 'ad nauseam,' abusing and yellow in
spirit The Limit can set them all agoing
if it sticks to clean comics and constructive criticism, not abuse. Star bids it
welcome to the editor's table and concludes with best wishes for its success.
Two dollars per year.
The Royal Hawaiian Musical Co., consisting of eight performers, will be at the
I.O.O.F. hall, Princeton, on Monday

MINES AND MINING
Coal Market Improves, Adding
to Payroll Strength of
P.C- & L. Co.
Princeton District Awakens Interest
in Mining Men and Capital
Will Follow.
Chas.   Camsell,   Dominion   geologist,
was at Okanagan Falls recently examin
ing a vein of asbestos, and later went to
a point on Okanagan lake to investigate
a coal deposit there.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is feeling the effect of approaching winter,
manifest in an increasing tonnage output. Supt. Holden will immediately add
fifty miners to the pavroll to meet the
demand for winter fuel, and the large
standing orders in Vaucouver. This company is now in firstclass shape to deliver
500 vtons daily. By actual test and use,
Princeton coal is the best domestic fuel
yet produced in British Columbia. It is
absolutely clean and of good heating
quality, and is bound to find a market on
its merits.
There are 450 men employed by the
Granby company at its Hidden creek
properties. A conservative estimate places
the ore in sight at 5,000,000 tons. There
is great activity in building operations
and development work in the camp.
Fine specimens of native bismuth are
in demand at a premium on the market
price for the metal. A few choice specimens have been obtained from Cobalt,
Ontario.
B. M. Barney, a well known mining
engineer, representing the London Exploration and Development Co., of London, Eng., is making a trip through B.C
with a view to investment, and will be in
Princeton shortly.
O. Jeldness and C. S. Jennings of Spo
kane arrived in town today, and proceeded to Leadville, where they will at
once put a force of men at work on the
B. C. Leadville mine. John Blackburn
will have charge of the work.
The B. C- Copper Co. will put on an
other diamond drill, making six in all,
on their properties at Voigt camp. Fngl-
neer Keffer is expected this week.
W. B. Dornberg. superintendent of the
Treasure Mountain mine at Leadville,
was in town on business this week, and
reports progress in this ptomising camp.
He is pleased with the prospect of early
completion of a road to the camp, and
does not fail to give credit to whom credit
is due for the promptness of thus affording early transportation. When development warrants, railway connection will
be  forthcoming; meantime, nothing less
than hard work aud the judicious expenditure of money will put this camp on a
shipping basis.
RAILWAY POINTS.
The past week has been marked by unusual goings and coinings of railway contractors and engineers. J. H. Kennedy,
chief engineer of the V. V. & E. coristrnc •
tion, was at the front and made a flying
trip back to Penticton, then returned to
Princeton and went to the front again
with a car full of contractors. Of the 42
miles to he constructed, Jacobson & Co.
have 16 and J. G. McLean has 5. The
remainder will be let at once, Guthrie &
Co. reserving a few miles J. J. McDonald has the contract for building culverts.
A. F. McDonald and K. G. Hankinson
are probable contractors for grading
toward the summit J. Moore, rightofway
agent, is also at the front.
L. M. Hale and family will reside at
the front during construction.
The Canadian Northern will shortly
let a contract for construction of 131
miles from Kamloops to Kelowna. The
Great Northern will meet the Canadian
Northern either at Penticton or Kelowna.
The Kettle Valley is slowly coming
toward Princeton, reaching this point
some time next year.
A. McDonald, a railroad contractor of
wide experience throughout the west
^nd an early resident of Princeton, was
in town last week on his way to the front
of railway construction. Recently Mr.
McDonald has had contracts for the
C P.R. near Abernl, on the west coast of
Vancouver island, and is likely to take a
slice of grading on the V.V. & E. for the
coming winter. He notes improvements
in and about Princeton since he was here,,
some five years ago, an predicts a prosperous future for the town.
. BUSINESS AND PLEASURE.
L.'W. Shatford, M.P.P., was a visitor
to Princeton last Friday, and is looking
and feeling fine. Although his life is
one of strenuous activity, being identified
with many companies and interests, he is
not forgetful of his constituents or his
duties as legislator. As president of the
bank of Vancouver he has given assiduous attention to this new institution,
bringing it into the front rank of
moneyed concerns. In social circles
both he and Mrs. Shatford are prominent
and were honored by the Duke and
Duchess of Connaught with attendance
at a formal dinner given in Vancouver.
He expects to be in Princeton again in
the course of a month.
R. Garnham Harvey, of Vancouver, is
a probable resident of the town now vis
iting here.
G. H. Sproule, constable, relieving Constable Rogers, goes to Kamloops Saturday to be preset-1 at the trial of A. Mc-
Gillivray, indicted for 'rolling' a man at
Hedley.

THE   PUBLIC   SERVICE.
For the forty-third time, Star
wants to know why, in the public
interest, nothing is being done
toward the construction of Dominion
public buildings in Princeton It is
a matter of general knowledge and
numerous complaints that the town
is deserving of much better accomodation for post office and telephone
services. If the progress of the
town is not to be retarded some im
provement ought to be forthcoming.
Princeton is so much behind other
towns in asserting its rights that it
has won some unfavorable distinction for its out of date methods in
regard to public service. It is not
necessary to go into details, any one
may see and judge for himself. Already outlying places have petitioned
for postal facilities and that accommodation which the government
has not given through the Princeton offices. The board of trade and
the political associations have a duty
to perform if they are to justify their
existence, and that duty lies in
prompting our legislative representatives to the necessity for the very
best public service that can be rendered. The Dominion house will
soon meet, and no time should be
".lost to impress the government for
an appropriation for public buildings. In the matter of public convenience the government ought not
to be behind private institutions; in
fact, the government should set an
example in all that pertains to businesslike methods. The Hon. Mr.
Burrell will only be too pleased to
help in the progress of Princeton if
he has public sentiment behind him.
ignorance stood in the way of betterment. Now, however, thanks to
an enlightened age and an intelligent press women will take their
place beside men in all that concerns
humanity, irrespective of sex. Our
lawmakers have gone as far as they
are able in remedying the social
evil and temperance questions, both
of deep concern to women and the
national life—it is unreasonable to
expect them to remedy evils they
are addicted to. Possibly the woman
suffrage question would make bet
ter headway if the objectionable
violence accompanying it were left
out. But history says that no great
reform was ever accomplished without the inevitable blood as the seal
of earnestness and righteousness of
cause. The women of the Similkameen and the whole province should
stand firmly together in what is
their undoubted right—the ballot.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Now the war cloud has shifted to
the Balkans and all Europe is giving a barbaric warwhoop. Is it not
silly and farcical?
WOMAN   SUFFRAGE.
No reasonable argument has ever
been produced to show why woman
should not vote. No sane man will
say that the average of women is
not equal to the average of male
voters in intelligence, judgment and
morality. No person of age should
be deprived of the fundamental
right to be consulted on any legislative question affecting his or her
welfare. In the days when women
were treated as beasts of burden
and altogether inferior to lordly
man, they meekly submitted to oppression and wrong, because their
Fossils discovered near Edmonton, tbe dispatches read. Psychologists tell us that living fossils are
found in every community opposing
reform, improvement and progress.
Qnite citified Princeton now looks
with its sidewalks and graded
streets; yet, time was when these
improvements were opposed. The
wheels of progress grind slowly and
they crush the mossback into his
original dust and sleeping shell.
The London Lancet disapproves
the habit of smokers to blow smoke
out of the nose, and says a deadly
poison, furfural, lurks in every puff
out of the human chimney. Boys
are warned to leave tobacco out of
their list of luxuries if they want to
grow larger than a mere 'stunt.'
The old school of Canadian statesmen are passing away, and it is
with deep regret that Sir Richard
Cartwright, who spent a half century in public service, is no longer
in the political life of Canada. His
death removes one who could be an
opponent, yet genteel, courteous
and affable. First a Conservative,
then a Liberal, he tought a good
fight, earnestly striving for his
country's good. He won a place
among statesmen because he never
faltered to do what he believed was
the best under the circumstances.
He had the courage to stand by his
principles, a rare characteristic in
the majority of politicians, and was
ever ready to sink self for national
welfare. Canada has lost a man of
spotless character and unsullied
name, and the people are so much
the poorer.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
Paradoxical as it may seem, it is, never
theless, true that extreme ignorance is
more often found in college taught per
sons then in any other walk of life. Universities are factories for turning out
asses and human derelicts.
Prayer is spirit longing for wisdom and
that truth which makes one free from
sin, sickness and death.
Eveu if you have no musical talent,
you can hum any old tune which drives
out care and worry and sets up harmony.
Always look on the bright side of life.
'Forgetting those things that are be.
hind,' said the old apostle. Too many
brood over lost opportunities and a dead
past. Cheer up! Brace yourself for the
future and do right.
Get the habu of boosting, and yon will
find yourself boosted.
Your standing as a lady or gentleman
is not determined by money, clothes, oc
cupaticn or outward appearance, but b3'
your capacity to love. Love lends polish,
likability; hate is ill-mannered and jar-
some.
Think right and you will always do
right. Thought always precedes action.
Put out the evil thought before it matures in wrong deed.
Woman was created the equal of man;
therefore, she should enjoy all the rights
and ptivileges of men.
