V.V.&E. TO BUILD NOW-CEMEBT WORKS-BRIGHT OUTLOOK
E
RAILWAY MEN ON JOB
Contractors  Look Over Line
and will Tender for
its Construction.
Y.V. & E. Must be Finished in Year—
Tulameen Headquarters and
Snpply Base.
Rumors and reports have been flying
around, contradictory and otherwise, regarding the construction of the V. V. &
£. At this moment nothing definite nor
authoritative can be learned beyond the
cold fact that constructeon will begin.
As a p inter and preliminary to actual
operations tbe engineer in charge of construction, J. H. Kennedy, and. a party of
contractors have made personal inspection of tbe line from the present end of
track to mile 45 of new work: at the
summit in Coquihalla Pass.
Following are the names of the contractors going over the line last Wednesday: R. B Porter, Spdkand; C. W. Wen
erhoff, Minneapolis; M*. Woldson, Spok
and; G. A. Carlson, Spokane; W. L. Dean
Mi.soula; I, H. Ellison, Minneapolis; A.
W. Sagel, Spokane ; J Twohy, Portland;
A. McDougall, of Guthrie & Co., St
Paul; — Lafolliet, of Sims & Shield, St
Panl; and J. Kellett, of Stewart & Welch,
Vancouver.
The first grading and track to be immediately done will be about three miles to
Tulameen, which will be the base, The
Coquihalla section will be built and
owned conjointly by the C.P.R. and Gt,
Northern, and it is reported that the
time limit for the V.,V. & E. is one year
in which to complete.
C. W. Buck and his party of Kettle Val
ve> surveyors are camped at China
creek in thi- suburbs of town, The locat-
e I line as near Peterson's ranch, which,
fi r the present will not be continued un
til certain preliminary lines aie run. No
clue to the permanent location of the
line through Princeton is known
MINES AND MINING.
Platinum Experts Representing Capital will Purchase Placers.
Low wateT in all "the rivers and creeks
helps the placer min^jg this season.
C; F. Law, with New York capitalists,
is visiting the Granite creek and Tulameen placers.
Swede placer miners on Granite creek
have been taking good values in coarse
gold, three and four dollar nuggets be
ing quite plentiful, and a fine platinum
nugget also recovered.
Frank Bailey, M E. returned last Monday from a. trip  up  Granite   creek   and
Tulameen river where he was engaged
showing placers to J. E. Colby, of the
firm of Baker & Co , platinum dealers,
New York, and A. B. Coussmaker, representing the largest platinum dealers in
the world, Johntson, Matthy & Co , of
Hatton Gardens, London, Eng. Both
gentlemen are experts in the employ of
their respective firms visiting various
parts of the world in search of the ever
precious platinum. The alluvial de-
posits-of the Tulameen district contain
gold and platiuum and are the most ex '
tensive iu America. With the object of obtaining cantrol by purchase of these deposits the gentlemen named have been
surveying and estimating the extent and
probable value of the bars and benches
known to be platinum bearing. Should
a deal be consummated with the various
owners of gold-platinum leases and
mi.ieis' claims a large hydraulic and
dredging industry will be established and
the recovery of these precious metals will
be proceeded with on a large scale. Mr.
Bailey was partly instrumental in inducing ihese representatives of capital to
visit Princeton district and Tulameen.
Wm Britton is driving a tunnel on the
Britton mineral claims in gold-platinum
ore, upper Tulameen.
Robert Keffer of the B. C. Copper Co j
Gr.enwood, was in town Friday on his
way to Tnlani.en and Bear creek where
he will examine mineral properties. He
_R_TlS?__*attending college at Pullmau,
Wa h. taking a mining course, thus following in the footsteps of bis father, who
is consulting engineer and mining expert
for the B. C Copper Co. Mr. Keffer, jr.,
among other accompiisbments, wields a
facile pen, at one time being editor of
the Anaconda news. It was according to
the eternal fitness of things, therefore,
and an act 01 fraternal courtesy that he
shonld call on the 'mineral', editor, of
Star and briefly occupy the old familiar
editorial chair while discoursing on problems and probabilities of past, present
and future. We wish him a great care, r
in this great country.
Percy G. Wright has been gazetted
secretary to the board of miners exam
iners of Princeton.
Fred Keffer, manager of the B. C,.
smelter and mining engineer, went to
Voigt camp last Friday,
CEMENT TOWN GOES
East Princeton Busy and Bright
with Prospects Due to
Big Platit.
Produce Cement by New Year and
Quality will be of Best Made
in World.
The spur to the B. C. Portland Cement
Co's works was finished yesterday and
East Princeton is now on the highwav to
progress and development after a long
and serions delay. It took the railway
commission to settle the technical question causing the delay and secretary C R
Briggs, no doubt feels easier now that
the cement company -can complete the
plant without further hindrance.
Superintendent Osborne is quite confident that the making of cement will be
in full blast by the first of the year 1913.
Allowing about 90 days for the cement
to cure or ripen it would appear that an
abundant supply will be ready to market
with the begining of next years' building
season.
The raw materials for making the ce
ment are prononnced first quality after
careful and many analyses. The demand
for it is expected to tax the full capacity
of the plant from the first as the cement
will be of the highest grade and owing
to the remarkable proximity of coal,
cheap fuel, all the raw constituents of
cement, this product will be in position to
challenge competition.
Under the new and hopeful conditions
East Princeton must attract population
and immediately respond to the impulse
of glowing prospects. The town will be
a large contributor to the revenues' of
the government and to the general wealth
of the province. Its promotes are en
titled to a gf odly share of the prosperity
couspicuous in all progressive towns.
PRINCETON DISTRICT BAND.
Always welcome and appreciated the
Thursday evening open air band concerts
are well patronized. When the proposed
band stand is erected the concerts will be
longer and the players more advantageously placed.   Following is the program:
March, 3rd Battallion W. S. Ripley
Andante and Waltz... W. S Riplev
Serenade, Violet. ...J W. S. Ripley
March and Two-step, Commander...Hall
Waltz, Easter Mori/. W. S. Ripley

March, Great Republic Chas. Southwell

BOLD, BAD BEAR.
Homer McLean and Bert Russell, well
known as McLean & Russell, the hustling real estate dealers, took a nanitch up
the river tbe other and got the surprise
of their life. Thev were in a jungle spying
out the land when the faithful dog with
them gave a sniff and' a fearful howl evidently scenting a bear. All they had
with them was a George, Washington bat-
c let with which they wished to make a
quadrilateral post. Both the young men
said they were not afraid, but this as
sertion'proved premaluije for a great big
black bear came ambling toward them
so boldly that they took the nearest tree,
climbing to a friendly j limb. Homer
hanging to it, not unlike the object lesson of a southern lynching party, but
with a mighty muscular effort he got astride just in time to see bruin disappear
over the hill with tbe dog naggling his
heels. Ne,xt time McLean & Russell
will take something more formidable
than a hatchet with them.
LABOR DAY.
The observance of Labor Day is a fixed
annual event that enables the uncrowned kings of labor to take a dav 'off'and join
in the sports and festivities usual for the
occasion. Tulameen and Hedley will
both celebrate, the posters announcing
varied programs with certain features
pecu lar to each. At Tulameen aquatic
sports on beautiful Otter lake will be a
strong drawing card along with other attractions while Hedlev will offer enticing
prizes aud probably pull off some big
record breaking events.
SUPERIOR SCHOOL.
The superior school in Hedley having
received sanction of the department of
education at ViofSfta  will  open  on the'
4th of September with the required  quorum of scholars. A superiotschool is merely
introductory to a high school requiring
half the number of scholars to begin with. *
The location of a high school isdetermin-
ed by the number of scholars offering from,
a given section, population and importance of the proposed  locality.    The  ad -
vantages of a high school in a   town are
too obvions to require mention.

CONCERT—VAUDEVILLE.
Insufficient advertising, inclement
weather and a suneit of entertainments
contributed toward the unremunerative
house played to last Saturday night by
En tic Wagneri and Miss Mable Best.
The baritone of Mons. Wagneii is full,
rich and of great compass but he was
handicapped in having to play his own
accompaniments, something no singer
however competent and confident can
well attempt before a critical public.
Miss Best bore the palm of the evening
in her dramatic numbers and proved a
comedienne of no ordinary ability.
Properly staged and advertised this company should be successful and popular.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Nature has endowed Princeton
and district wittv a wealth of water
power and an abundance of fuel,
coal and wood, which should be of
strong inducement, to manufacturing industries. The distribution of
cheap hydro-electric power over the
district for the opention of mines,
smelters and other industries is a
chief factor in the successful production of our raw resources and
the making of them into articles of
commerce.^The rivers and creeks
are charged with millions of horse
rower waiting to be harnessed by
.-one man.or company for the purposes indicated. Who will be first
10 take advantage of this gilt edge
investment ?
connection with their own city and
lacking the capital lying idle in
their tanks to build up  industries.
The 25th  annual  report  of the
Vancouver   board   of trade   is   not
such an illuninating   production as
one   might  expect  from  so  large
and somewhat influential body:    It
barely makes reference to the Similkameen and its  vast  resources  in
coal, coke, copper,  iron,   gold  and
platinum,   fruit    and   argiculture.
The city of Vancouver is  only   150
miles from the Similkameen yet its
board ol trade  and  its  newspapers
scercely  mention the  great  tributary resource, lying dormant  here
and all because of their dull apathy
in urging on the completion of the
railways  and   giving  publicity  to
this field for investment and exploration.    Vancouverites will yet  regret their cold blooded   indiflerence
toward,  and  neglect  of, a  district
that offers more to them  in  investment and   contributory  commerce
than any other district in  the  province.    The  editorials of the   big
coast dailies could be made very interesting and beneficial to all if occasional reference were made to the
Similkameen and other interior districts,  giving   publicity  and information that would  attract  capital.
But the  newspaper  editors   rather
deal with some non-committal, non-
controversial,    nonsensical   subject
than bestir their brainfagged bumps
in promoting the interests of struggling contiguous, districts.    Selfish
and narrow minded inslitutious and
newspapers are worse than  useless
when they cease to  urge  improvement and progress and legitimately
boost the development and resources
of districts lacking  direct railway
Hell is commanding considerable
attention just now. Two kinds of
theory or speculation regarding it
championed by the literalist, or fire
and brimstone adherent on the
one side, and the anti-eternal boil
ing lakeof-fire on tne other. Unfortunately there is much levity in discussing so serious a subject and
that detracts from the purpose of
many who take no stock in the
religious aspect of the question but
who are concerned chiefly in hell's
location and the geologic conditions
which surround and make up the
supposed eternal home of the damned. The center of the earth is
said to be a great molten mass and
some preachers and laymen are
strongly of opinion that this is thel
future abode of the wicked. Thej
believers in a material hell seem tol
be in a minority according to some!
authorities. Canon Henson ol j
Westminster Abbey repudiates the
eternal torment doctrine of the 'dark
ages' and the famous Rev. R. J.
Campbell of London,Eng..representing the nonconformist view says
that he does not know any educated
clergyman there who believes in
eternal punishment. Rev. A. L.
Odell, a St. Louis pastor says he
does not know of any Presbyterian
minister who believes or preaches
this literal hell aud Rabbi Rosen-
treter, Jew, the Methodist Episcopal church aud the _.. C. clergy are
generally opposed to it.

In Prance agitation is made to
abolish advertising with posters

.he senseiess notion of plastering
the whole country with big bills
and paint is now looked upon as
the least effective form of advertising and many of the largest publicity agencies are now patronizing the
newspapers to an extent never
known before. By experts and
advertising firms it is known that
a passing glance at posters on a
lence, bill board, or building neither impresses the passers by nor
fixes the attention of busy people.
In the house or office the newspaper is always ready for reference and the advertisement therein can always be consulted ana
discussed. The conclusion, therefore, is that newspapers offer the
best form of advertising to be obtained, and as they do a lot of
publicity work gratis it is only
natural they should be well patronized. Advertise in the newspapers !

Other features of a range, such as convenience,
economy and appearance, are, of course also indispensable, but the prime necessity in a range is results in
cooking. The Gurney-Oxford gives results—not now

Every Gurney-Oxford is a source of continual satisfaction to its owner. Day after day, year after year, it

An attempt to traverse Canada from
Halifax to Vancouver is to he made this
fall by Herbert Gilley, of New Westminister, who is making this trip in the in
terest of tne Canadian Highway Associa
tion, flying the pennant of that organisation on his Canadian- built machine
It is Mr. Gilley's intention to make Halifax his starting point, although he is a
resident of the Pacific Coast
No man.'perhaps, is better acquainted
with the roads in the    different  parts cf

to the many years spent in lumbering enterprises in British Columbia he has a
wide knowleage of road conditujnsjn the
Hasten. Provinces,  where he spent the
i.est part of his life.    He  believes that
the most difficult trip for an  automobil.
in all British Columbia is over the Hope

been attempted.    A  road is  being  buill

That the size of all United States currency and national bank notes will be reduced by one third and their designs
revolutionized, for the sake of economy
to the government, convenience to the
public, and safety against counterfeiting,
has been practically decided by Secretary of the Traesury MacVeagh. It is
