Princeton coal is ' king;' 800,000,000 tons of it.
To all: A very happy Christmas and Star's good wishes.
Everything points to Princeton being a divisional and junction terminus of the V., V. &E.; it is the natural converging centre for
rivers, roads and trails and Its location is admittedly the choicest in the Similkameen Valley as a distributing point—Buy now.

TENDERS CALLED FOR
Construction   Between
and  Abbotsford   on
theV„V.&E.
Hope
Regular Train Service Expected to
Princeton Tomorrow—Station
Near Completion.
Tenders areiAow being called for the.
construction of'the V., V & E. line between Abbotsford and Hope, a distance
of 78 miles, and also between Princeton'
and Tulameen. The gap between Tulameen and Hope is to be covered, it is expected, by the proposed eight mile tunnel.
Messrs. Charles F Folliott of Guthrie &
Co. of St. Paul, and J. A. Kellett of
Foley, Welsh & Stewart are now iri
Vancouver iu connection with the ten-;
dering and J. H Kennedy, chief enginj
eer of the Great Northern Railway company is also in Vancouver,
The engineer's office for the accommodation of the.staff employed on V.'.V. &
E. construction west of Princeton, has
been completed. Engineer Hale will be
chief of staff and have charge of the
grading work as far as Tulameen. From
present indications it looks as if Jim
Hill's artillery would again be peppering
,away at the rock fortresses as soon as the
j holiday armistice was over.
All the contractors' equipment is now
in the yard, ready for use westwards.
Engineer Russell, now revising the
line between  Granite Creek and Prince-
s ton, is expected to finish this week.   No
Crightofway has been purchased as yet.
The Russell  party will proceed to Oro-
, ville and run a line up the Okanagan
river to Penticton. The Great Northern
is alive to the great productiveness of the
fertile Okanagan  valley when cultivated
' and is shaping for the fruit tonnage to be
hauled to the Northwest provinces and
the Koote nays.    It   will  be a welcome
competitor to the C.P R.
Regular trains are expected to begin
running tomorrow, connecting "with the
through  train  for Spokane at Oroville.
The station building is about ready for
occupation.
j||| TOWN AND DISTRICT.
The Sunday School Christmas entertainment is to take plaice on Tuesday

an old fashioned Christmas treat in trie
Court house. Parents are expected to
provide baskets as usual.

letters of acceptance in answer to invitations to  the  masquerade ball on New
Year's Eve'. * The event promises to be
the most successful of the kind ever held
in the Similkameen valley.
Fresh made candy at Princeton Bakery
and Confectionery.
Christmas buyers should have compassion on the clerks in the stores by not
leaving to the last day their shopping.
Those-who serve behind the counter will
be unable to enjoy their holiday with
the rest of the people if they have to
work till midnight the previous night.
A Burns Club, composed of admirers
of 'Nature's Poet,' is talked of and will,
it is expected, be organized in time for
the celebrated bard's anniversary, 25th
January, 1910.
Miss Olding, sister of Mrs Hunter, is
a visitor at Maplehurst, having arrived
on Sunday from Grandforks.
Fresh mixed candy at 25c. per lb.' At

Don't forget the concert in aid of the
public school organ fund. Piper Forsyth will make his debut before a Princeton audience and Miss Gladys Coulthard
will dance to.the music of Scottish bag-
'"pipes. Music, drama and recitations in
great variety. Miss Carson, teacher, is
sparing no effort to make the' occasion a
grand success. Conic, all. Admission,
50c.j'childftftv under 14 years of age, 25c.

in Princeton to fix up building.
S. R. Gibson and family of Goldbank
farm, Fivemile, and .uncle Wesley expect to spend Christmas in Chilliwack
and at thexoast visiting relatives.
Dell Young and wife arrived home last
Wednesday from a very pleasant visit
extending as far east as Minneapolis,
'Sainte Paulee,' Chicago, and the old
Wabash down in O-hi-o. They are glad
to be" back on Happy Valley farm, where
there are no such terrors as flying machines, autos or buzz saws.
Railroad contractors Hankinson, Cunningham and McDonald have gone to
Spokane and on return expect to make
the dirt fly on the line westwards.
A CHRISTMAS CARD.
Christmas bells are ringing,
All mankind are wishing,
Each to have a very merry time.
To you and yours come greetings,
From us and ours now meeting;
At this dear old Christmas Time.
To our friends of the east of the Valley,
Fj*om the friends of the west of the same,
Comes the love like of old time rally,
Ot the love that never knew wane.
To you, as to all your dear ones.
. From hearts that are ever aglow.
May the health and the wealth of the past years,
From God, our Provider, 'still flow.    '
Rev. J. Thubburn-Conn.*
Princeton, B.C.,
Xmas, 1909,
CHRISTMAS IN TOWN
Stores well Supplied with Requisites for Inner and
Outer Man.
Business is Good and the Outlook Fine
for Coming Year—Shops are
well Stocked.
Star will not depart from its annual
custom of making special mention of its
advertising patrons engaged in the Christmas and New Year supply trade. Following may be found some useful hints
for purchasers, mention being first made
of the
City Drug Store-
in new and commodious quarters and
centrallyjrlocated this store has all the
advantages accruing to a large and well
kept stock. Mr. Campbell, the proprietor, has a large and increasing trade and
keeps a stock of drugs, stationery and
fancy goods that would do credit to a
larger town. Holiday and presentation
goods in great variety.
C. V. Semerad & Co.
This firm of chefs, bakers, confectioners and restaurateurs have catered for
the public many years here and elsewhere. They have a most eligible stand
for business in the Thomas block and
for the holidays and every day in the
year offer choice home made candies and
pastry, fruit and bread which cannot be
surpassed.   Give them a call.
The A. E. Howse Co,, L'd.   .
The 'Big Store' is about closing the
year with a splendid increase in business
for the past twelve months, due to efficient management and courteous treatment
of customers, besides having the goods
people want. The store this year is very
attractive, both in the display of holiday
goods and the tastily decorated interior.
Call and see, then make a guess at the
amount of money in the bottle.
Summers & Wardle.
The old reliable butchers and" purveyors of' fish and flesh. The gobbler and
his wife may be found here in all their
glory, ready for the oven and then to
the Christmas dinner table. There is no
lack of good meats, the animals being
home raised and in splendid condition.
Steak that will 'melt in your mouth' and
roasts that are perfecto-delicio are now
on view at the Princeton Meat Market. ,
H. Massonat.
The jeweler, engr&ver and optician is
a recent acquisition to Princeton. He
has built up a good business and is much
encouraged with the prospects. A very
select stock of jewelry and watches are
on view. Suitable presentation gifts are
very tempting, whether of gold or silver.
Mr.  Massonat has a   neatly   decorated
store and  customers may be assured of
most courteous service.
HOCAL AND GENERAL.
J. T. Johnson, vice-president of the
Columbia Coal & Coke Co.. and G. L.
Fraser, of Lethbridge, Alberta, were in
Granite recently looking over the North-v
Fork coal property with a yiew wfc starting work immediately after the holidays.
J. A. Brown, editor of the Keremeos
Chronicle, was in   town Sunday, having
^**-fcen a run up on one of those catcb-
as-catch-can trains on the V.,Y. & B.
Mr. Brown is a booster for the wholes
Similkameen    and  rightly  enough   for
.Keremeos in particular. He publishes a-
clean, newsy patter deserving of the best
local patronage and snpno t. He states-
lhat the Keremeosians are anxiously
waiting for Princeton coal to be depvered
in carloads. •
Engineer Hale of the V.,V. & E., and.
family, arrived on Sunday and will be in
residence here during construction.
The guessing competition in the. A. E
Howse Co's store will end on Thursday,
tomorrow, at 5 o'clock, js*hen the judges
will count the guesses and the prizes
be awarded. Last year Tommy. King
won the highest prize.
Among those unfortunate candidates
who lost their deposits at the recent elections were A. Thompson in Dewdney, J. .."
Landmark 'in Revelstoke, R. Elmhirst ia
the Similkameen and DeHart in the
Okanagan. Where, oh where is that
'influential Liberal push' we heard so
much about before the elections—Record.
Hugh Cowan  is expected  home from-..
Portland sanitarium this waek.
Uhler & Cox are at work on their fine
mineral property on Fivemile, showing
some exceptionally good ore. They have ..
been the medium of attracting experts ■
and capital to Princeton district and are
surely deserving of success in making a
mining camp of Fivemile;
Christmas services on Sunday next at
11 a.m. and 7.30 p.m.
CvSchisler of Fivemile has bnilt a town
residence on Kenley Av. for the accommodation of his children attending

CHRISTMAS BAY.
Christmas ! Happiest day in the
year. Observed throughout all
Christendom by religions and social
usages and customs. It is the one
day of the year when fathers and
mothers, brothers and sisters look
for the return of those members of
the family who are afflicted with
wanderlust. Family and other
social reunions are reserved for
Christmas, when gifts and other
tokens of love and friendship are
made a part of the joyous occasion.
It is the one, supreme day of all
the year when the heart is moved
to do generous and kindly deeds.
When everybody wants to be happy
and in some way is willing to conduce to the happiness of others. O,
that the Christmas spirit would per-
• vade the whole year.    .,'£{ijj
Few people, in the anticipation
and whirl of Christmas festivities,
ever considenfthe originating factor
of^all that the day represents and
the joy it brings. | Beyond all question, Christmas,- as the natal day of
Christ, is the most momentous day
of all time and all civilized history*
The ancient's looked forward to "it
and we look back to it. It is the
day ;of deliverance from the slavery
of sin for all who believe in and
confess Him before men. No other
Name written that has the power
and attractiveness of Christ. It is
the Name men profane and swear
by because there is none greater,
thus unconsciously rendering homage to the greatest Personage the
world has ever known.
Christmas will have due observance in Princeton. Every home
and every table will be supplied with
the things which make for comfort
and happiness. The children live
in a land of plenty and no: one of
them will be forgotten or lack in
those things which recall memories
of the day. Star extends very best
wishes to all, hoping this Christmas
will be one of their best and happiest.
OLD COUNTRY ELECTIONS.
The general elections now in
progress in Britain are of especial
interest to Canada and all the
other self-governing colonies within
the empire. A.principle is involved
in them which is dear to all liberty
loving peoples and which is essential to government by the people
and for tbe people—it is the principle of responsible • government.
The house of lords is not a respon
sible  body,   members   having   the
power to  legislate  and  make laws
affecting  the  Empire  through inheritance  or   the mere accident of
birth.    They  are   not   responsible
to anybody  and  are subject to no
authority.   They are supreme, having the power to  veto any measure
the Commons may pass.    It is this
veto power, exercised by the always
Conservative house of lords  upon
the Liberals,  that has given rise to
a grave crisis.    The  great mass of
the  people, it  is  believed, will no
longer  tolerate the  interference of
an irresponsible  nobility with  the
representatives   of the  electors  in
the  house of commons.    The idea
of. a class of people, many of whom
are without merit or ability, taking,
part  in   legislation    on   no   other
qualification  than  that  his  father
was a peer is particularly repugnant
to the westerner, who cares nothing
about ancestry,  titles or class.    To
him the  man of merit  and ability,
chosen • by  the electors, is alone.fit
to  make   laws.     The   lords  have
privileges denied   their fellow subjects in not being liable to arrest or
imprisonment   at any time  of their
lives,  or of any   peeress,   for  any
civil   offence,   a   monstrosity  that
would not   be   tolerated  in Canada
for an hour, i KAy"P^r /">■£   >.*'
So long as there is a privileged
class of peers artd an established
church Canadians will hesitate, if
not absolutely refuse, to be brought
into closer relations with the old
country. They do not want to be
subjected in anyWay to "the domi-
nancy of an aristocratic body ot
hereditary- legislators, a. considerable proportion of Whom are imbecile'or otherwise Unfit to make or
unmake laws for a progressive and
intelligent nation. .The 'common
people' outnumber the lords by
many millions. , Yet the lords rule.
A very unjust and a very painful
case'of tbe minority governing the
majority. '"If Ibis blot be removed
in the forthcoming elections then
Canada will the mpre readily take
up her share of the burdens of
Empire and cooperate with the
motherland in fighting a common
enemy;
NOTICE,
THE KETTLE RIVER VALLEY RAILWAY
CO. will apply to the Parliament of Canada at its
next session for an Act authorizing the construction of an extension of its line from a point on
its authorized railway near Coldwater River, by
the most feasible route to the navigable waters
of the Fraser River, in the Province of British
Columbia, for an extension ot time for the commencement and completion of its railway line
heretofore authorized by the Parliament of
Canada, and for other purposes.
• E. C. MYERS,
Secretary,
Kettle River Valley Railway Co.,
Dated at Toronto the 30th day of October, 1909.
NOTES AND. COMMENTS.
The question of a Canadian navy
or contribution in cash toward
building warships for the British
navy will soon be decided by the
Dominion .parliament. It is to be
hoped that no time will be wasted
in deciding what ought to be self
evident to every loyal Canadian,
viz: A Canadian fleet built, owned,
manned and controlled by Canada.
No cash contribution without representation in the British House
of Commons. That money and
those warships it would buildmight
be used to our disadvantage if there
were not the safeguard of parliamentary representation.

The difference between a bore and a
gossip is slight. Bores talk about themselves, what they have said or done, and
gossips talk about others.
The combination of bore, gossip and
knocker in one person is about as disagreeable a makeup as can be found.
The guilty person is the one who takes
affront without a specific charge being
made against them. Suspicious persons
are sensitive of their own faults.
Religion emphasizes the evils of sin ;
culture emphasizes its grossness.
Only cowards make insinuations;   it*
requires courage   to speak boldly and
truthfully at all times.
No person can practice deception with-
the tell-tale stain being observed in some
form.
Anybody can find fault, but it requires i
ability to be a critic. •
Goodness and goodiness are different.   .
It's the man who uses his head that)
'getsthere with both feet.' j
A woman can always flatter a man by)
asking his advice.
'Every man is the architect of his own 1
fortune' ; but   so   many of us draw bad
plans. I
It is good philosophy to be happy at I
all times. Cultivate cheeriness and the I
whole year will be one prolonged Christ
mas day.
