GRAND TRUNK ROAD
Princeton District will Benefit
Much   by Highway
to Coast.
Automobile Eoutes Through Interior
Most Charming—Great Aid
to Development.
Speaking to a representative of the
Daily News at Nelson Hon Thos. Taylor, Minister of Works, said: "I am
strongly of the belief that the best way
in which to aid in the development of
this great province is by means of a sys
tem of good roads connecting with the
main interprovincial trunk road, thereby
giving the settlers and townspeople a
means of cheap access in and out of the
different localities.,
Road from Ocean to Prairie.
The greatest project which the provincial government has on hand at present,
and one whtch will, when completed,
take its place as an engineering feat with
tbe famous roads of the Roman Empire,
is the transprovincial road from the Alberta boundary line to the coast. This
work is of an interprovincial nature, the
two governments of British Columbia
. and Alberta, working in conjunction
towards the construction of a highway
between Calgary and Vancouver. The
road from Calgary lo the Crow's Nest
and from the Crow _> Nest to Creston,
with the exception of a gap of six miles
between Kitchener and Goatfell, is already completed.
links of Road Already Built.
Regarding this great undertaking Mr.
Taylor stated that commencing from the
west end of the highway, there is already
in existence a road from Vancouver to
Hope, a distance of one hundred miles.
From Hope to a point 53 miles east is
another road which was built by the
Royal Engineers in the early sixties.
This has been reported in excellent condition with the exception of some of the
bridges which need repairs. From the
end of this old road, which is known as
23-mile point, Mr. Cleveland, P.L.S., is
locating a route to some point on the
Nicola-Priuceton road. From Princeton
there is already good road connection to
Cascade iu the Boundary country and to
beyond Vernon in the Okanagan district.
Alternative Routes.
Engineers will shortly locate a road to
connect with Trail from Cascade on the
one hand and from Vernon on the other.
This will give an alternative route between Princeton and Trail, permitting
the traveller to go either through t_fe
mining and fertile orchard sections of the
Similkameen and  Okanagan or the min
ing camps of the Boundary.
Magnificent Tourist Trips.
The completion of this grand trunk
highway will make one of the finest
automobile tours to be found anywhere
in the world, besides making accessible
a lot of good land in Princeton district
and giving transportation to mining
camps now isolated and idle. Princeton
must benefit immensely from the opening up of this route, since it is the diverging point for the alternative routes
and the converging place of numerous
trails, roads and two rivers, affording important connections with suirounding
country. A short lateral road to the
international boundary line from the
Roche river district would prove a great
feeder and offer an alternative route to
the coast through Washington
He Can 'Come Back.'
Minister of Works, Hon. T. Taylor, is
enthusiastic in his handling of this great
undertaking and the development of the
province generally by roadbullding. He
hasshown superior ability in working
out the various schemes for opening up
the country and making it attractive for
visitors and settlers. It is such men that
add strength to the government and inspire the confidence of the people in
Premier McBride to shape the destinies
of this province by selecting only capable men to fill cabinet positions. Such
men always 'come back' in every contest
and in spite of the fumings of a guttei-7
snipe press which see failure and crookedness in any project thev do not happen
to espouse.
Auto Line to Coast.
The interprovincial road can be in
operation for the summer traffic of 1912.
It would thus put to shame the snail
like Jim Hill uow crawling up the Tulameen valley with the V.,V. & E on his
shoulders, seemingly too much for him
to pack. With the building of the interprovincial road to the coast an auto service will be regularly installed which
will reduce the time now required by
the railroad from three days to one to
Vancouver. May the work of 'Good
Roads' Taylor never slacken is the prayer
of the jimhilkameen.
Frank Dolletnore, mine host of the
Similkameen hotel, Hedley, was in town
yesterday.
W. D. Lawson, manager of the Eastern
Townships bank, Keremeos, will not act
as accountant here, as stated in the Star
last week, being only transferred temporarily to assist Mr. Carmichael, and will
be transferred shortly as manager of an-
othesfbranch.
^Robert Stevenson was taken to the
hospital at Hedley last week suffering
from a carbuncle, which caused him
much pain. A myriad of friends all over
the province will be glad to see him
around again.

F. Revely left for Vancouver last Saturday having, after about a dozen years'

to be t .pped by the Kettle Valley railway now in course of construction from
Midway and Merritt. The Fivemile
countrv bulks largely in the eyes of prospective homeseekers and investors.
V    HOW IT HAPPENED.
The fact that the last two editions of
Star were of the same date seems to have
afforded some jokers an opportunity tor
poking fun, while, on the other hand it
is seriously commented upon by those
who have learned to look on its pages
as being as accurate and reliable as its
heavenly namesakes in their circuit
through space. In the hurry and excitement incidental to sending the last form-
to press the galley slave changed the date
a week ahead instead of leaving it at
normal, the mistake being discovered
by the editor just as the 'devil' was throwing off the last quire from the press, too
late to remedy. The unfortunate error
is not likely to be perpetrated again in
the next thousand years, at least by the
galley slave, who has been fired, and the
whole office staff has been warned to not
let the dates get mixed again on pain of
excommunication. Lest there should be
any fear of missing a number Star informs subscribers in arrears that they will
receive 52 numbers this year as formerly.
RAILWAY OFFICIALS VISIT.
General Manager Grueber and Chief
Engineer Hogeland of the Great Northern, with President Elliot of the Northern Pacific as their guest, were chief of
a party, arriving on a special train early
Sunday moruing. President Elliot takes
an abiding interest in Princeton and he
is reported to be looking for coal ground
in this section. Messrs. Grueber and
Hogeland went over the extension of the
V..V. & E. to Tulameen. As the grade
is in the last stages of completion it is
probable a report of acceptance will issue
and nothing further be done until next
spring. No hint of new work was given
out, the outlook now indicating that the
V.,V. & E. will be given a long rest.
Meanwhile the C.P.R. is building the
Kettle Valley line from both ends and
Princeton is not without hope.   -
GRANITE CREEK NEWS.
From Our Own Correspondent.
Granite Creek, Oct. 22—Frank Garrison and Gus Clerf arrived Monday evening with two large boilers for the compressor at the Columbia Coal & Coke
Co's works. Most of the buildings on
Cardiff townsite have been erected and
are awaiting the finishing touches.
Judge Murphy arrived home last week
from Pike's mountain.
Thos. Rabbits is erecting a modern 10-
roomed honse on Rabbitt Creek.
Mrs. J. C. Catlett will take charge of
the boarding house at the C.C. & C. Co's
works.
James Brown is now occupying the
new dwelling recently erected by R.
Lawrence.
Louis Marcotte arrived home from a
visit to the Spokane fair the first of the
week.
The 4-C's Co. has started the work on
the offices and dwelling houses on the
ground formerly owned by T. Rabbitt.
A strange animal, long and low set,
about the height of a coyote and which
lives in water, was seen several times recently down 'in the bottom owned by
Mrs. James. Several shots have been
fired at it by our best marksmen but it
seems to dodge the bullets just at the
right time. Its right name is not known
but the descriptive one, 'amphibious
bivalopus' is locally applied to it and answers the purpose. It seems to loiter
around the soup springs at Welldo a
great deal. It is believed to be the same
animal that treed 'long' Hitchings and
his son on a dark night in November five
years ago.

NOTICE.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The general appearance of a town
at first sight to a visitor often decides in his or her mind the probability of becoming permanent residents. With a favorable impression of location, scenic aspect and
business prospects to begin on an
intending purchaser is more than
half won. The cleanliness and
neatness of streets, the painted
buiidings and tidy yards, the orderliness and attractiveness of the people, the pure water supply and fire
protection, the religious and educational facilities, the prevailing good
moral and social qualities of citizens, all make a grand asset, the
value of which cannot be estimated
in dollars and cents. Princeton has
this asset. Besides there is a glorious climate, unbounded mineral
wealth, fishing and hunting and
scenic grandeur which cannot be
surpassed in all the world. No
traveller in countries famed for
scenery has ever seen anything to
equal our Hope range of sierras
with glaciers, lakes and streams.
And all within a few hours' ride of
the big cities at the coast when the
V.,V. & E. is completed.
The hospital now nearing completion is an investment of the
people of this district which puts
Princeton on a plane with the most
advanced towns in the province
As a meaus for the relief ot suffering humanity the modern hospital
cannot be dispensed with. It has
the proper equipment for coping
with disease or accident and is the
only place where high class trained
nursing is enabled to carry out the
physician's order with complete
satisfaction to all concerned. In
brief, the hospital is indispensable
for all those who trust in material
remedy. It will require the united
help of all in Princeton district to
equip and maintain this institution,
and everyone should consider it a
real privilege as well as a duty to
contribute toward that end.
It seems likely that the interprovincial trunk road will be complete
by the end of 1912. Hon. Thos.
Taylor, minister of public works,
is vigorously pushing the work and
the coming session of the legislature will probably see a large appropriation of money for the purpose. Tbe government cannot fail
to make good on this great public
work.

Rescue stations with improved methods
for saving life are being established at
