THE BOARD OF TRADE
Resolutions for Completion of
Roads Connecting up
Outside Points.
Trail to Big Goldfields in Skagit Section Would Make Good
for Princeton.
The regular meeting of the Board of
Trade was held Monday night, important matters relative to the progress o
Princeton and district being discussed
and legislated upon. The minntes of
previous meeting being confirmed the
-election of S. C Briggs, Secretary of the
B.C. Portland Cement Co., to a seat at
the board was proceeded with and unanimously declared.
Bill of the Similkameen Star for printing posters re public meeting to reorganize fire brigade, ordered paid.
Action of the president in pledging JSio
toward purchase of fire hose, subject to
endorsation of board, was approved. .
The following resolutions regarding
' the completion of Onemile road, so that
direct communication with Nicola might
be established, effecting a saving of some
fifteen miles in travel ; and the building
of the remaining link to connect the
Okanagan with the Similkameen district
via Fivemile, were unanimously adopted
by the board :
Resolved : That the Princetou board
of trade respectfully desires the Hon.
Commissioner of Public Works, Mr.
Taylor, and the member for Similkameen
riding, Mr. Shatford, to place amounts
in the estimates of the forthcoming session sufficient to cover cost of completion of the Onemile and Fivemile roads./
Direct Road to Okanagan.
In the deliberations of the board it was
emphasized that the Fivemile road, now
almost finished to Osprey lake, about
20 miles from Princeton, left an uufin-
ished liuk of about 35 miles to connect
with the Trout creek road on the Okanagan side, and that with the building of
this road a continuous route for auto
tourists would be given from the coast
over the projected interprovincial trunk
road to Vernon, besides it would be of
immense advantage to settlers along the
line of the Kettle Valley raijway now
building from both ends. The Onemile
road is a long standing necessity and requires a link of about ten miles to complete, which, when done, will afford
quick transit and intercommunication
between Nicola, Similkameen and Okanagan.
Nicola Must be Linked Up.
It was pointed out that Mr. Shatford
had completed the Onemile and Fivemile
roads to the boundaries of his riding
and that it was up to the members for
Yale and Okanagan ridings to procure
appropriations for building the roads to
connect. To this end the secretary was
instructed to write Nicola, Penticton and
Summerland boards of trade, also the
municipal councils of Summerland and
Penticton requesting their cooperation
toward the construction of these necessary links in the development of the
country.
Trail to Great Goldfields.
Resolved : That the Hon. Commissioner ot Public Works and the member
for Similkameen riding be respectfully
urged to have a sum appropriated sufficient to make a trail from the head of
Roche river to the Steamboat mountain
mining section, a distance of about five
miles.
This trail, when completed, will put
Princeton in touch with this great mining section, which now promises to be
one oi the world's historic goldfields.
It is distant from Princeton via trail to
the head of Roche river, about 50 miles.
This route is nearest for prospectors from
the east and south and affords some of
the best prospecting ground in B.C It
is roughly estimated that the trail will
not cost more than $500.
• The secretary was instructed to post
a memorandum to Martin Burrell, M.P.,
regarding the erection of federal buildings in Princeton for the proper accommodation of the public, regarding which
an almost unanimously signed petition
was sent to him last year.
The questions of incorporation and
athletic giounds was brought to the
attention of the board, action being deferred for the present.
Board adjourned.
THE WEEKLY GRIST
Reorganization of Fire Brigade
Necessary for Proper
Fire Fighting.
Citizens Subscribe Toward Purchase
of the Best Brand of
Fire Hose.
EHfeE HOSE NEEDED FOB TOWN
/__. A Simmons, representing the Vancouver Raibber Co., selling agents for the
Gutta Percha & Rubber Co., Toronto,
was in town last week soliciting orders.
More than usual importance attaches to
Mr. Simmons' visit as he took up the
matter of increased fire protection for
the town and made an energetic canvass
of citizens for the purpose of purchasing
fire hose. He was successful in securing
subscriptions amounting to $400 in a
short while, an additional $100 being required to furnish the requisite number
of feet of hose. For the present abouy|
500 feet of hose will suffice, which, with
an ample distribution of hydrants over
the water system will provide good fire
protection within the town area. Further subscriptions will be received at the
A. E. Howse Co's store, where also may
be paid the money already due, this
firm having' consented to act as agents
for Mr. Simmons in the matter.
A.T.Anthony, District Deputy of the
Modern Woodmen of America, arrived
yesterday and will institute a lodge on
Thursday night in the I.O.O.F. hall.
The waterworks system will soon be in
readiness for operation as good progress
has been made in laying down distributing pipes Householders and business
concerns generally are customers of the
system and are glad to dispense with the
wells, always subject to the dangers of,
contamination.
^SThe tunnel on the V.,V. & E. on the
western boundary of town will be completed Ahis week. The grade is now
practipally completed to Cardiff. A lot
of men are now employed riprapping,
Nobody seems to know anything about
bridge building or tracklaying.
Every lady is expected to join in the
work of the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary.
It is an association, the charitable nature
of which makes common cause for, all
who love and pity the sick, suffering and
dying. The hospital in any town is an
evidence of the better spirit in humaniiy
and tends to bring about that great brotherhood of man in which all should
take pari.
Indifference toward any cause neither
thinks, talks nor acts ; in brief, it cuts
no ice.
Frank Bailey, M.E., arrived by stage
from Merritt last Thursday and went on
to Hedley, where he has mining interests. He reports Merritt lively and a
prodigious development of that district
is going on. Mr. Bailey is optimistic and
full of hope for the future of mining in
this section. He will be in the Similkameen for two or three months.
G, D. Fraser, manager of the Columbia Coal & Coke Co., Cardiff, was in
town Saturday on a business visit. The
company is pushing the preliminary
work of developing their great property.
'Many tons of machinery and material
are being hauled by wagon from both
Princeton and Merritt. The diamond
drill is working steadily and the sawmill
is preparing material for buildings. A
gang of men are driving the tunnel and
with many other projects to the fore Cardiff is a bustling embryonic town.
Nelson is raising #5000 for publicity
work.
Dell Yjying has mohed into his fine
new house on Billiter Av., which is still
in the hands of contractor Irwin adding
a spacious verandah which  lends   sym
metry to the  whole   structure.     Fvery
- .
convenience is provided in the internal
arrangement of the house which has a,n
artistic and comfortahle appearance.
Real estate is booming in Hope, values
having more than doubled in the past
three months. As tnnch as $2500 is
asked for corner lots in what is expected
to become the business center.
The weather of late has been decidedly
fall-like with a spice of winter thrown
in. First covering of snow last week
but it all disappeared in a few hours.
Weather prophets have been busy predicting a hard winter. The Star meteorologist predicts a mild winter with lots
of sunshine. He does not know why he
predicts that but it just seems to look that
way to him after some 40-50-60 or 70
falls he has observed on this terrestial
sphere. It will be a mild winter, with
just enough snow and frost for the boys
and girls to skate and tobaggan down the
hills.
A great influx of miners and prospectors is expected into the Steamboat mountain section in the early spring. There
are fifty square miles of virgin country
in which to prospect yet.
B.C. PORTLAND CEMENT CO.
A meeting of the directors of the British Columbia Portland Cement Co. was
recently held in Vancouver at which it
was decided to go ahead with just as
much of the preliminary work toward
establishing the factorv as could be done
this winter. Plans for buildings and
equipment are being prepared and will
be presented to the directors at their next
meeting some time this month. It is
known that Great Northern railway people have had analyses made of the raw
cement products at Onemiie and they are
entirely satisfied with the results obtained and will soon begin the construction of the railway spur. Bonds of the
B.C. Portland Cement Co. are selling
rapidly, the first one hundred thousand
dollars of them, with which is given 50
per cent, in stock, having been nearly
disposed of. Intending purchasers will
not have another opportunity to procure
stock on such favorable terms.
EIRE BRIGADE WANTED.
The question of a thoroughly organized fire brigade is now before the citizens and should be upheld by them in
every possible way. Princeton has the
reputation of being one of the most
cleanly towns, it now has the opportunity to become well protected from the
ravages of fire. The waterworks system
affords a pressure on Bridge St. of about
100 lbs. to the square inch, enough to
throw a stream over the highest building
in town. Equipped with the very best
brand of hose made, the Paragon, it is
possible to fight any ordinary fire wiih
success, it remains with the citizens to
organize.

INCORPORATION.
Without attempting to force the
question of incorporation upon the
citizens of Princeton the fact remains, nevertheless, that in the
natural course of growth and events
the matter must soon be grappled
with. It is in the nature of man
to organize and adopt some form of
tribal or civic government. The
rude barbarian will choose his headman and the lower animals have
their leaders. It is not the purpose
of this paragraph to discuss the
merits of muncipal government, or
of its various forms by commission,
board of control or the ordinary
aldermanic board and mayor, it is
rather to point out the necessity for
meeting the looming responsibility
and present the subject in such form
as will assist in its proper consideration and digestion. One of the
first things to be decided will be the
area to be included in the incorporation. To save any friction in the
future and possible antagonism of
interests it would be well to make
the boundaries of the town so large
that no additions would be requisite for some years. For the purposes of incorporation tbe present
existing western boundary of the
townsite might remain where it is,
the other boundaries extending from
Allison budge north two miles
south one half mile, both north and
south lines reaching to the western
boundary. These limits would dispose of any possible conflict of
townsite interests and unite the
immediate sections concerned into
one compact, and let us hope, harmonious, whole. It seems that
municipal'government by commission with addendum and referendum clauses, is successful wherever
tried. But the success of any form
of municipal government is, and
must always be, due very largely to
the diplomatic, executive and industrial ability of the mayor or
other elected head.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The need ot athletic grounds and
a race track combined with a park
and pleasure area has been emphasized more than once, a committee
having been appointed to secure
them last summer. If that committee is still alive it would be in
order for them to report. There is
no time like the present to acquire
the land for the purposes stated. In
another year or so it will be impossible to obtain the ground in a con
venient quarter and the usual regret will ensue that the earlier opportunity was not embraced. It
may be suggested that as Princeton
will expand eastwards from, its
present center the better location
for a park and athletic grounds
would be in that direction. Any
location west of Onemile creek is
within easy access if near the roads
running from town. If ground is
not available through gift or purchase it is probable a long term
lease could be obtained. Now is
the time for action.
At a recent meetiug of the Vernon Board of Trade one of the
members, Mr. Smith, directed attention to the ' rotten' nature of
the telephone service furnished by
the Dominion government in the
district. He said : 'You pay for
ten or fifteen minutes on the phone
and then have to write a letter.'
This is but a sample of tbe mismanagement and conditions that
prevail over the whole system. Mr.
Stevens, the superintendent, holds
a similar position on a private
owned telephone line, but the government dare not disturb him in
his dual capacity. There is no discipline in the public service, each
servant being master unto himself.
The public works and postoffice departments are honeycombed with
inefficiency and incompetency. It
was this disgraceful condition of
the public service which drove
many old time Liberals into revolt
in B.C. last election. 'Rottenness'
is the proven conditioh of tbe various departments of the Dominion
government. Sir Wilfrid is no
longer master of his own house
for his menials do as they please.
It is time for a radical change.|
Tbe most distasteful form of
criticism is that which has its root
in malevolent ignorance. Persons
wholly ignorant of the stupendous
importance of subjects glibly condemn them because they are incapable of appreciating their worth
or understanding their methods.
The Vancouver World makes light
of Christian Science and endeavors
to discredit it in the eyes of its
readers without first having tested
the power or truth of its teachings :
Wisely or unwisely the World does
not, or cannot, prove its statements
from that standard authority, the
Bible, but calls in the aid of some
obscure pamphleteer. So far as
Star has learned Christian Scientists are the only professed believers
in scripture who are practically carrying out its teachings ; in spiritual
regeneration, heaiing the sick and
cleansing the leprous, in faith and
works generally. Jesus said to the
messengers Go and tell John the
sick are healed, the lame walk, &c.
Through C.S. thousands, including
doctors and ministers, have been
saved and healed by divine power.
