Westminster Board of Trade Wants
Sailroad Extension—Budget
of Correspondence.
At the regular meeting of the Board of
Trade last Monday night, President McDougall in the chair, communications
were read as follows :
From A. B. Campbell, 2009 E. Empire
Ave., Spokane, Wash., who says : "Gen-
t'emeu, I am looking for a location with
a good future ahead of it to open up in
the hardware business. I have friends
who want to go into the feed business
and also a general contractor and builder.
What are the chances in these lines, or
are they already represented ? What are
the chances of the country generally and
what is doing in farming and fruit raising? What is the mining outlook, &c?
Have you a sawmill ? Send copy of your
newspaner," &c.~
From the Secretary of New Westminster Board of Trade: "I am pleased to
inform you that at a regular meeting of
this Board it was unanimously resolved,
'That this Board endorses the steps taken
by the Secretary and that he be authorized to support the Princeton Board of
Trade in its efforts to open up their district by the extension of railway facilities."
From the Monetary Times, requesting
.Information regarding certain manufactures and industries, giving estimate of
capital invested, &c.
From R. L. Broadbent, Canadian Exhibition, AY.P., Seattle, acknowledging
receipt of thanks of the Board and stating that he would see that due prominence is given to the mineral specimens
from this section in the National Museum
at Ottawa.
The question of precautionary measures for prevention of contagious diseases
was discussed and the advisability of a
public hospital being established was
considered at length. It was shown that
the lack of hospital accommodation and
trained nursing was a lamentable condition in these modern and civilized days.
In emergency cases life was very much
endangered by long transportation to
a hospital. Recent cases had shown this.
Immediate steps toward securing a hospital were urged and a committee appointed to awaken public interest in the movement. The following committee was
appointed to arrange for a public meeting, correspond with Mr. Shatford, M.P.,
and wealthy philanthropists and report
at next meeting of the Board : President
McDougall and Secretary Marlow, ex-
officio members; Dr. Lazier, H. H.
Avery, J D. Lumsden and J. M. Wright.
The Board was of opinion that water
filters for public places and especially
schools, would be beneficial.
Board adjourned.
« J0HNS0N-MACRAYE GOODBYE
ENTERTAINMENT.
The Johnson-McRaye entertainment
held Wednesday and Thursday nights,
proved a high class intellectual treat.
Miss Johnson gave recitals of her own
poems full of Indian legendary lore and
soul stirring scene, showing her emotional and declamatory powers with
fine effect. Her delineations of character show that as an actress she is able to
-produce the required effect and both
amuse and instruct. Her delineation of
a class of Canadians who ape English
manners and affect English airs was received with continuous laughter. There
is a healthy patriotism pervading much
of Miss Johnson's repertoire, making it
all the more appreciated. Mr. McRaye
in his impersonations of the French-
Canadian habitant did well and Miss
Webling, though little seen, did well
also. The whole entertainment was deserving of much better patronage. This
is the farewell tour of these entertainers.
Miss Johnson retiring to married life and
Mr. McRaye going into the wider field
of vaudeville in Vancouver.
THE STANDARD'S SOUVENIR
NUMBER.
The Montreal Standard s special number has come to hand, and is a most creditable production. It has a magnificent
cover in colors, painted by one of America's best known artists. The number
contains nearly 150 half tone plates
devoted to subjects of general interest,
and has two superb panoramic views of
Montreal suitable for framing. The
printing is first class, and we understand
that many thousands of. the issue have
been sent to friends abroad.
ILLEGAL KILLING DEER ON
TULAMEEN.
* Complaint is made by a number of
persons that Indians are slaughtering
deer on the headwaters of the Tnlameen.
It is also said they use dogs, contrary to
the law therefor provided. Whoever is
game warden for the district should get
busy and see that our dusky countrymen
hunt in accordance with the statute. If
the slaughter of deer is not checked it
will not be long until the hills will be
depleted of these pretty and excellent
animals.   Warden, save the deer.
Miss Lowndes, of Hedley, has been
visiting friends here prior to leaving for
'Merrie' England and the Continent.
Jack Swansborough is painting the

Commerce left yesterday for Vancouver

Mr. and Mrs. Swanson, of the Great
Northern Hotel, arrived back from the
coast last Wednesday after.having had
a very enjoyable holiday and renewing
old acquaintances. They were interested
very much in the A.Y.P. which is proving a great success.
L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., writes, to  a
friend from New York city that he was
then on his way to Halifax, N.S., to visit
relatives. He expects to be in the, Similkameen by October 20th and his friends

after several surgical operations.
ELECTION CAMPAIGN NOW
IN SIGHT.
A Victoria despatch says that "in the
event of an.agreement being reached for
the extension of the Canadian Northern
railway into British Columbia before the
end of the year, Premier McBride intimated this morning that the legislature
will be dissolved and an appeal made to
the country in November or December,
in order that no delay in construction
shall occur." ?% -*£
GRANITE CREEK NEWS.
(From Our Special Correspondent.!
Granite Creek, October 4—Messrs.
Anthony and Copeley were here last
week. They are Vancouver mining men
and are looking over the property of H,
McCallister, upon which they have a
bond.
Inspector Mcintosh of the Bank of
Commerce, Priuceton, paid Granite a
short visit on Sunday last.
Mr. Camsell, Dominion geologist, finished the season's work last week. His
party camped on Welldo, where there is
plenty of water and grass for beast and
fish, game and natural soup for man.
W. H. Holmes has received orders
from B. Bonthorne at Vancouver to immediately get the North Fork coal camp
in condition for mining. The new owners are said to have headquarters in St.
Paul.
Lonis Marcotte, of the Granite Creek
hotel, attended the Orange dance at
Princeton last week.
Messrs. Hollo well and Miller came in
on last week's stage and are now working on the creek.
Philip Holmes will shortly arrive to
spend the winter with his uncle.
Coal is reported to have been found on
Black Mike's place, Otter Flat.
ORANGE BALL BEGAN DANCING SEASON.
The Orange ball held in the Oddfellows' hall last Friday night was one of
the most successful dances ever held in
Princeton's social history. Orangemen
may well pride themselves on the work
of their committee, which resulted in a
social and financial success and earned
for themselves the rep. of being able to
produce good amnsement. The Princeton orchestra, led by Prof. Knight, comprised also Mr. and Mrs. Coulthard ahd
Mrs. Lyall, rendered the finest of dance
music. The Princeton orchestra is an
excellent musical combination and is sure
to be well patronized this winter.

RAILWAY REACHES PRINCETON, AT LAST.
Before another Star is issued the
tracklayers    with    their   hammers
and clanging steel  rails  will, have
arrived at the outer ga|es of Princeton.    Momentous event ;  yet stealing into town before one can realize
•its  presence  or importance.    Like
some gnome out of the mists of the
past coines this terrible engine of
commerce and civilization to awaken people out  of their sleep.    Tbe
free, devilmaycare  life of the frontier must give way to  the panting,
hissing,    throbbing,    tooting  iron
horse with his daily load of capital,
homeseekers  and  the other requisites  of a  developing community.
It is four years   since construction
began  on  the   130-mile  stretch of
the V.,V. & E.  between  Princeton
and  Midway—a   little  more  than
thirty  miles  a  year !    But it's no
use  kicking  now. ■  If better  time
is not made from here to the coast
there  will  be one  long  and loud
bowl,  which  may result in confiscation of the  whole  line and 'Jim'
T-robv~
Now every eye is trained toward
the curve above the canyon and
the figurative ear is to the ground
to catch the first approach of the
locomotive. What a thrill of joy,
or it may be of sorrow to some of
the old, old stagers who dislike
progress and civilization, will suffuse the souls of those who have
longingly waited for the'first sight
of a locomotive in many years..
Let us as citizens make a loud noise
noise on the huegag,, tomjon and
giizzyfuzzy in welcome to the iron
horse. If Mr. -Hill or his representative should be around Star
bids him welcome to a half hour's
freedom of the town. All aboard !
Let 'er go.
THE GROWING TIME.
That a wave of prosperity in succession to a period of depression
and financial stringency is now
passing over the Dominion nobody
will deny. Those faithful barometers of progress, the -banks, indicate fine and clear financial weather
for a long time ahead. For the
month of August deposits in them
show an increase ot $12,000,000
over the preceding month, and
$123,000,000 increase for the past
twelve months. The business deposits, payable on demand, amounted to $228,397,848, and the time
deposits    to    $472,581,848.     The
time deposits^are a  certain  indication of returning prosperity.
The  enormous  yield of grain in
the  provinces east of^the Rockies
has generated'a widespread bujXgg
ancy  which  is  felt even in remote
places  like  Princeton.    The pulse
of-people here is beating high with
hope.    Capital,   always  timid, has
begun  to  show  an increased faith
through inquiries and actual negotiations   for    properties   involving
deals of many thousands of dollars
each.    These are but the faint rays
of light  that  precede  the dawn of
better days for  the  wEole Similkameen. l,vtlfACi2>
Other indications of progress, are
in  evidence  at  almost everyi.turn".
The Vermilion   Forks  Co , owners
of Princeton townsite, have made a
beginning toward the  construction
of a   waterworks  system  and  it is
understood propositions for' electric
lighting will shortly be made.    The
introduction, of-waterworks for domestic, sanitary and   fire protective
purposes  is  an  absolute necessit)'.
In taking early   steps   to  meet this
necessitous  demand' the    V.F.M.
people  are doing   all   that   reason
could exact and their action is sure1
to be appreciated by  all stable citi--
zens.    The same company has now
a full force  of men at work on tbe
above   ground, buildings'and plant
necessary for the cheap and expeditious   handling'of a large tonnage
of coal.   - .Th;rj
The Vermilion Forks Co. largely
holds the destiny of Princeton-in
its keeping, its possessions1 and interests far outweighing all-others.
Its conservatism, of past years,
viewed in the'light of tiaae cog*
nate with th& construction of the
railway, has been amply justified.
'A waiting policy sometimes savors
more.of business tact and good
judgment than unguarded progress
causing retrenchment if not actual
retreat later on. Slowly at first,
but surely, the V.F.M. Co., and all
progressive citizens, will reap that
-deserved reward which comes from
honest, persevering application to
any legitimate purpose. Beyond
all donbt the resources' of thisTdi$|
triet cannot fail to make a city of
Princeton. Other places haying
not a tithe of our mineral wealth
have become great centres of industry and population. The day is
dawning.

" Under the system of appointing po-'
litical heelers, because they are snch, the
provincial police force has degenerated
into an incapable, useless body of men,
in whose- hands ''the administration of
justice and detection of crime have become a public scandal."—Mail-Herald,
Revelstokc.
• [It is openly- alleged , that in some of
the^ftiterior mining towns the saloons,
the  'tenderloin' habitues, and gamblers
j pay a regular rake-off to the .police. .. In
one town a saloon is owned by the pro-»
vmcial policeman and the other saloons
complain of favoritism. This state of
things is a constant source of reproach
for the citizens, the magistrates, the newspapers printed and published in those
towns, the chief of the provincial police,
"and the government. If the fountains
for the suppress&n of crime, disorder
and lawbreaking are corrupt soon all
kinds of abominations w.ill*cesult. Turn
on the searchlight.

At Middlesboro the Nicola Valley Coal
Co. is putting in a 20-drill compressor
and will increase the output to 1000 tons
per day.
Owing to the coal combination at the
coast $7.50 is the ruling price per ton.
Princeton "coal can be laid down to the
consumer in Vancouver for $5 when the
railway is completed.
