I Money Makes the Mare Go |
She will have Roads to
Go On!
Construction and Repairs with Goodly
Sums to be the Program for
this Summer.
Road building and repairing will be
pushed this summer with unusual energy
in this section. Appropriations have
been made for completion of unfinished
work of last year and the beginning of
new roads where *ound necessary. The
amount of appropriations for public
works in Similkameen riding is nearly
$70,000. Roads and bridges will con
sume the most of this sum. Mr. Shat
ford puts considerable stress upon his
having secured this large amount. The
"Star gladly concedes that he has done and
is doing well for his constituents and will
continue to laud him in spite of narrow-
minded critics so long as he makes good
for the Similkameen.
Foreman Goldsborough will shortly
put the Hope trail in good condition for
summer travel.
Foreman. S. Gibson will shortly start
work on the Five-Mile r_ad, giving the
settlers in that section a'bang-up good,
road, which they have been a long time,
obtaining.  .
The One-Mile road, it is unofficially
statid, will be completed to the boundaries of the riding. This is an important
work and ought tn be pushed to a finish
to connect with Nicola without any further delay.
A road to the North Fork coal mines
will be built this summer and will be
run from the most advantageous point
on the trunk road.
Jas. D'Arcy has begun  work on the
new road  which  will obviate the heavy
grade near Allison  on  the Wolf Creek
'Jtjighway.   He has a number of men at
work and pays $3 for a 9-hour day.
PIONEER OF PIONEERS.
"Governor" Dewdney Visits Princeton and takes Look at Allison.
Hon, E. Dewdney arrived in town last
Wednesday from the coast, having come
in connection with his large interests in
this section. He is quite sanguine of the
future of the Similkameen and points to
the time many years ago when he was
first impressed with the great natural
possibilities of this section. A confirmed
advocate of the development of the
country he sees no reason whv capital
and transportation, once established in
the Princeton district, should not make
very rapid progress in manufactures and
the opening up of mines.    In connection
with railway explorations and the laying
oufWiroadjr'and trails for the provincial
government the hon. gentleman has been
ovpi'li great part of British Columbia but
(he evidences of his faith in this district
ovey all others are found in the large
interests he has hereabouts.
The Hon. Mr. Dewdney has seen nearly
a half century of frontier life and is probably the best informed person on B C.
generally than any other man living.
He was for about a dozen years prominent in the Conservative political arena
but retained, and still holds, the respect
and friendship of those who are opposed
t> hi:n in party thought and action. As
Lieutenant-Governor ot this province he
administered affairs . with consummate
diplomacy and a dignity that gave gov
ernment house an unique record. He
was Lieut.-Governor of the Northwest
Territories and also Minister of the Interior in Sir John Macdonald's cabinet.
Well nigh the allotted span of life the
Governor is still as fresh as a daisy, is
active and has splendid eyesight—may
he long continue to enjoy these blessings.      Ife-SB ___________•■_
WHEN THE COOS CAME HAME.
How Two Couples Went a-Cooing and
-fixed up Fun and Romance.
From Hedley comes a distressful tale
of rivalry or revelry in which two cou
pies of lovers are the actors. It appears
that the parties were guests at a-suour
ban inn and while-the gentleman with
a Grecian cognomen was cooing in the
garden with his lady the other gentleman,
who is a captain of finance, and his lady
leapt into the stylish rig behind a spanking horse belonging to the party of the
first part and drove away leaving a crip
pled horse and a squeaky dog cart for the
garden parties to get home with. They
say the air about that inn was brimstonic
and full of electrical discharges when the
Grecian found his rig gone. He said he
would be scorched before he would nde
through town behind such a nag and in
such a rig as the one left in exchange.
But he did. It wass too late for anybody
to see him and his sweetheart hobbling
into town. Of course it was a mean '
trick, but the Star man having had some
experience along this line, strongly advises courting couples not to coo
in a garden. Now their friends sing:
" -When the Coos Came Hame " and everybody give~. them the jolly ha ! ha ! If
the railway had been built this incident
would never have occurred and readers
would have been spared some painful
r jading. Is Uncle Jim short a few dimes
that he don't build faster ! Has he been
playing jackblack and lost a few ?
BEST ROUTE TO GXP.
North Thompson River Natural Inlet for Supplies to
Railway Camps.
Similkameen Has  Access for Cattle
and Fruit to Market on Line
of Construction.
Just now there are strenuous attempts
being made by Revelstoke and Golden
boards of trade, corporation and individ
jual interests also, to wrest the trade route
to the G.T.P. from its natural course via
Kamloops arid the North Thompson River
to the Columbia River via Big Bend and
portages. The North Thompson route is
much preferable because it offers induce^
ments to settlers for nearly its whole
distance, and, therefore, the money spent
in making it fit for freight wagons would
be of permanent benefit. The Big Bend
route does not attract settlers for the sufficient reason that arable land is not to
be found, there.
The Similkameen is tributary to the
North Thompson route in that beef cattle can be driven all the way to construction camps on the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Governor Dewdney surveyed this route
thirty years ago and knows it to be
perfectly feasible for transportation. The
government should have no hesitation in
putting this route iuto shape.
TULAMEEN TTJMTUM.

SNOWDEN-EVERETT.
Popular June Wedding with Honeymoon Trip Over Mountains.
The first of the June weddings and of
others covering the summer months as
fir as mid-August was celebrated at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. J.-G. C. Schisler,
near town, on Wednesday, 17th June at
6 p. m., the high contacting parties
being Mr. James Snowden of Princeton
and Bertha May Everett of Welland,
Ontario. The nuptial knot was securely
tied by Rev. J. Thurburn-Conn in the
presence of relatives and immediate-
friends.
The bride was very prettily attired and
looked happy in her new, yet solemn
role. She was attended by Miss Myrtle
Schisler as bridesmaid, while the groom
was supported by his brother, Mr- Claude-
Snowden, as best man. The wedding
supper was delectable in its every feature
and a fitting climax to the impressive
occasion. It was the Rev. Mr. Conn's
first marriage celebration in America and
will be followed by the customary presentation of a ^handsome Bible,, by him
to the bride.
Mrs. Snowden is an accomplished
young lady of recent acquaintance in the-
Similkameen, a cousin of Mrs. Schisler,.
with whom She and. her mother haye
been visiting ; the groom is one of the
early prospectors in this section who has
large mineral holdings and is well known
by a large circle of friends. The happy
couple left on a honeymoon trip on horseback over the Hope mountains and expect to be back in time for the grand
two days' celebration beginning on Dominion Day. The Star in returning
thanks for complimentary wedding cake
offers sincere congratulations and wishes
Mr. and Mrs. Snowden a long, happy and
prosperous married life.
Ernest Waterman, manager of the
V.F.M. Co., returned from the coast last
week. He was pleased to note progress
of Vancouver and Victoria. Citizens of
these places seemed indifferent regarding
the mineral wealth of the Similkameen.
But in Spokane people were all alert at-
the mention of tbe talismanic Similkameen.    [Coast people are asleep.—En.]
One week from today is Dominion Dayi
—the day Princeton celebrates—corneal!..

.KOOTENAY NOMINATION.
Smith Curtis, having accepted the
mnanimous nomination of the Lib-
"eral convention for Kootenay, is
receiving congratulations from a
wide circle of friends as well as encomiums from political opponents.
It must be gratifying to him, now
that he has s*et sail, to find both
wind and usually adverse currents
working together for good and in
his favor. By his sincere and faithful representation of the people in
the local legislature he won the
good will of all, and now, while he
enters the broader field of Dominion politics, there is but one expression from those whose opinions
count : That his valuable services
may be given to the state as unreservedly as in the provincial assembly—he is needed in the House
of Commons.
Mr. Curtis is  not a servile party
man.    Nothing could  be  more repugnant  to  him than to delete his
•better self and sink to the level^of a
mere  party   automaton.     This  is
the  sure sign  and   distinguishing
feature  of the man  of   ability ; it
also marks him as one amenable to
the still, small  voice of conscience,
ready  to  denounce   corruption  or
wrong  doing   in   his  party  or his
leader.    Herein   lies  the safeguard
of tbe rights  and  liberties  of the
people.    Men of sufficient strength
mentally  and    morally  to  combat
pernicious   political   conduct have
not been in the majority   in  either
of   the  great    political  parties  in
Canada.    A career of splendid isolation cannot emanate from a weakling, for either he will be engrafted
with one or the other of the parties
electoral opinion and is s certain
and powerful influence with many
to vote for the winning party. It
is an evil begun by the Conservatives and perpetuated by the Liberals. But, as Liberalism has always stood for remedy and reform
it is not possible for it to further
countenance this wrong or otherwise it must abandon all pretension
to observance of its principles. It
is not argument to say : "The Conservatives did it." It may do for
schoolboys to carry a point in that
manner, but not for men entrusted
with nation building. There is no
logical necessity, never was, for delayed elections, as in Yale-Cariboo
and elsewhere. In these days of
quick transit, of telephone and telegraph lines almost everywhere, besides the legislative means of making nomination day to suit all distances, ill is a mere travesty of fair
play to give the candidate of the
winning party such an advantage
over his opponent. Reformer that
he is, Mr. Curtis has begun a good
work, in which he will have the
support of all well meaning persons, Liberal and Conservative.
There are scarcely two opinions
regarding the certainty of Mr. Cur-
tis's election. He is a " horse" to
work. Does not require initiation
into campaigning and knows the
political history of hi? "ountry '1 ke
a book.' He is a fimsuod speaker,
and of unquestioned ability. He
will come back at the end of his
parliamentary term stronger than
when he first took his seat, gaining
in the confidence and esteem of his
constituents as he unfolds his public, life. No symptoms of head-
swelling have ever developed in
him and is not above heeding well
meant advice from anyone. The
Star wishes him every success.

NOTICE.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is a long time since the question of a mining school was first
brought to the attention of the
people of B.C. It is a wonder that
a matter of such outstanding importance should be so long neg-
or his political light will be snuffed Jkcted. A little headway has been
out altogether. How many mem- j made, but it is scarcely perceptible.
bers of parliament are there whose
voices are never heard and who
vote thumbs up or down as the
whip is held ? Mr. ' Curtis is not
one of those persons who cannot
give a good reason for his political
faith and acts. He has a manly
independence which has won him
many admirers.
Already that independence is
manifest on the very threshold of
his campaign. He asks that the
election in Kootenay riding be held
on the same day as in all other ridings where electors are not subject
to the illegitimate influence of deferred polling. He knows and everybody knows that a postponed
day of election is an unfair  test of

piest  place   on   earth ;    its   purity and j
sanctity will  be flirted with only by the
morally blind and corrupt.
Some ignorant persons cannot discern
the difference between well merited
praise and flattery—jealous, selfish, envious, even malicious, these persons want
praise but never get it.
Say the kind word of honest, merited
praise to foe as well as friend—it makes
-a bigger and broader man of the giver
and encourages the receiver along a lonely
and bleak path.
Strew some flowers, shed some light,
make some heart lighter, encourage to
do duty—we pass this way but once.
Wrong doing of public officials and
the corruptionist politician cannot be
absolved or hid by a servile supporter—
the very stones will cry out against them.
A person's age grows very rapidly
when it is a subject for debate by his or
her enemies.
Some fellows who blow their own horn
imagine they are the whole band.
We may be content with our lot in life
but how about that place over the Great
Divide ? i
One woman's idea of economy is to]
take an old $io-hat and fix it over ataj
cost of #15 so that it will look like new.   i

A POPULAR CANDIDATE.
The nomination of Smith Curtis as the
Liberal  candidate for Kootenay in the
House of Commons is received by persons of all  political creeds with much ■
favor.    Even the ultra-Conservative Pro-'
vince has a commendable regard for him \
and does not hesitate to say so : "In the I
selection of Smith Curtis as their candi-!
date in the federal elections the Liberals
of Kootenay have shown good iudgment,'
There  is no   prominent Liberal in that
constituency, who possesses the same excellent record that Mr. Curtis does.   He
has the  reputation, which no one will
deny him, of haviug acted in good faith
between labor and capital on several occasions.   He is regarded as the friend of.
labor while he is, in fact, a representative '<
of capital.   He has been a good friend of.
the  upper   country,    having   been   the 1
means of bringing in  money for invest-1
ment  in  mining  properties  in that dis I
trict.    It is   well known  that he cculd'
have had the Liberal nomination in 1904]
for Yale-Cariboo if he had chosen to ac-,
cept it.
