Vancouver City Council Knocks Proposition for Joint Terminal on
False Creek.
Vancouver city council will turn down
the proposal of the Great Northern and
three other roads for a joint terminal
station on 61 acres of mud flats on False
Creek. C.P.R 'influence,' like yeast, is
causing things to rise around that terminal site. Owing to obstruction it is not
improbable that the Great Northern with
its allies will seek a fresh water termiuus
along the Fraser.
Three survey parties are said to be in
the vicinity of Hope and Coquihalla Passs
working like beavers. The Great Northern is locating west of Hope, the C.P.R.
is running a preliminary down the Coquihalla and a Grand Trunk party is feeling its way through the gap somewhere. If this report be true there is
every probability of the big presidents
locking horns. In the mixup it is almost
certain the C.P.R. will make a jab for
the G.N. in its legislative parts and strike
a bee line for Princeton coal fields.
The railroad payroll is increasing every
day in the vicinity of Princeton. The
big cut in the care of the Austro-Ital-
ian gang is delivering earth over the
tempoiary bridge on the station flat.
A large consignment of Swedes arrived
last Friday to work on the railway grade
west of the town station. They are all
stalwart fellows and good workmen.
A rumor is afloat that a contract has
been let on the V.,V. & E west of town.
As there is neither circumstantial, corroborative nor prima facie evidence to
sustain that rumor, it must be considered
a mere 'rumor without foundation.' As
a matter of fact no rightofway has been
bought nor any cleared or cross sectioned,
necessary forerunners of the actual work
of construction.
SPY OUT LAND FOB EARLY
INVESTMENT.
A. A. Cruickshank, Sam Cawley and J.
Johnson, all of Chilliwack, were in town
last week on a short visit. It was their
first sight of Princeton and were much
pleased with its appearance and natural
advantages. 'You will have a big city
here in the near future,' said Mr. Cruickshank, and his opinion is worth having,
in view of the fact that he has been a
successful investor. In Chilliwack his
prescience and sound judgment of land
values have put him in a position to write
six figures in lawful money after his name.
He and his associates will keep in touch
with Princeton through the Star. They
were shown some of the mineral deposits
of this section by Billy Wilson.
RICH IN MINERALS: CLEANEST TOWN.
W. E. Duncan, M. E., of Merritt, was
in town last week on mining business.
He expects to establish a branch office
here in connection with his firm, Duncan
& Anthony. He is consulting engineer
for coal' capitalists .investing in Nicola.
Mr. Duncan comes from Cardiff, Wales,
where he was, metaphorically of course,
bred in, and fed on, coal. He has been
all over Canada and many other parts of
the world but has seen no district to compare with the Similkameen-Nicola in
variety of mineral wealth. 1}\ his opinion great mining and other development
will come with the railway. He thinks
Princeton a pretty place and tbe cleanest
in the interior.
yBRICK TO SATISFY ALL LOCAL
IjS^ DEMANDS.
Groves & Cain have recently burned a
kiln of 40,000 brick which are said to be
of excellent quality by those who are
good judges. A good quality of brick
has for along time been a necessity here
and now no order, however big, will be
turned away. The plant and the material
are capable of answering any immediate
demands and the experience of the makers ensures a good article. Messrs.
Groves and Cain came from Nelson and
will permanently locate here. Their first
delivery of brick in town was made to the
Vermilion Forks Co. for a chimney for
new offices. For large orders reduced
quotations will be made.
DAYS OF CAVORTING CAYUSE
NUMBERED.
A big band of cayuses was driven last
week through Princeton, en route to
Vancouver. They were all colors, sizes
and shapes, some of them looking fit to
kick tbe horns off the moon, and others
sly and sleepy enough to indicate lurking
deviltry when wanted to work. Our
horse editor knows the cayuse from the
sole of his foot to the highest point of his
hurricane deck. He has shoved him up
hill, pushed him down, swam rivers with
him and rode near three hundred miles
on emergency before breakfast (on the
fourth day.) Withal, one cannot help
liking the handy brute. But his days
are numbered for the chug-chug is here
and some uncany, wingless bisds are in
the air.
The new sidewalk is much appreciated
by citizens. The question is often asked:
Why not have a sidewalk from bridge to
bridge on the east side of Bridge Street ?
It would be a good idea to repair all-the
old sidewalks and crossings.
LOCAL AND (iENERAL
Heat Wave Runs Mercury up
into Nineties—Hot and
Dry Spell.
Times Improving with  Advance of
Railway Construction—Crops
Are Big,
Dry, hot weather has parched the
ground and burnt hill grass a light
brown. Running fires with heavy volumes of smoke rolling high were observed lately on Kennedy mountain and
Tulameen way. Too much care cannot
be exercised now in setting fires for clearing ground, camping or even lighting a
cig or a pipe.
J. Dalby of Victoria was a visitor to
Princeton this week. He owns 300 acres
of meadow land near Princeton which
he will improve and put in productive
shape. This land is bound to be a great
source of revenue with the assured market for hay here.
Grain harvesting is now in full swing
and better crops were never known.
Mrs. A. J. Marlow returned via Hope
Pass on Monday night from a very pleasant visit at the coast, including the A.
YP.
It is authoritatively stated that the
north pole has been discovered by a good
Yank.   Aud still the heat is scorching.
Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Conn returned Monday, the latter from a much enjoyed visit
to friends in Hedley and the former from
the. Presbytery meeting at Armstrong.
F. G. Benson and C. M. Rodman, rep-
lesenting the Norris Safe & Lock Co.,
arrived last week on a 50 h.p. Winton
touring car. They left Quilchena at 8
o'clock in the morning coming via Merritt, arriving here at 6 p.m., about 100
miles. This is good going over a road
that resembles waves of the sea in a 60
knot gale. Mr. Benson is patentee of a
pocket screw driver and pencil guard
which he is about to put on market.
After about a month of enjoyable and
interesting visit Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
will goodbye to their sons next week, returning to England. They have made
many friends here who will be glad to
hear of their safe return.
Jas. Reith, recently returned from El
Paso, Texas, where he had been for his
health, received congratulations of many
friends on his improved condition after
a long and serious seige of illness. He is
visiting his brother on Five-Mile.
County court will be held in Princeton
on Saturday, Oct. 9th.
Another of those ludicrous ertors which
'adorn' the Star occasionally was made in
last issue—the word  'septuagint' being
made to do duty for 'septuagenarian.' A
proofreader is certainly needed on the
staff. But our friendly critics take the
sting out of error by their good natured
puns at Our expense. Who wonld not be
an ed. on a frontear weakly !?
Owing to the regular meeting night
of Board of Trade falling on Labor Day
it will be postponed for one week to
next Monday night.
J. E. McCauley of the Reco, Copper
Mountain, has returned from Spokane
and is hard at work with his gang.
It is understood that the change in supply referred to last week, affecting this
missionary field, will consist in Hedley
and Keremeos being served by the missionary already stationed at the latter
place, and Princeton, with outlyiug camps
will constitute another field.
Deer killing may be practised up to-
the 15th Dec, not Nov. 15, as erroneously
stated in last issue.
Charles Graham of Nanaimo is expected to arrive this week, having accepted
the position of coal mine superintendeut
for the Vermilion Forks Co. The work
of developing and operating the mine
will begin shortly.
Messrs. Uhler andMox arrived from the
coast Monday and ^cnt up to their mine
on Five-Mile. They predict a turn in
the tide for this district and' expect mining men and capital willcomein increasing nurubeis and quantity as soon as the
railway is carrying passengers.
Charley Carlson, M. K. French and
F. Wampole were in Coquihalla Pass last
week on a cruise of investigation.
Hanning and Johnson are developing
a fine body of ore on the Independence
group, Bear Creek.
Much interest still centers around
the new find on the Whipsaw. It will
take some time to prove the ground and
put it in shape for capital. Messrs. Day
and Knight, Fitzgerald and Fearless are
open cutting on their claims.
HEDLEY LABOR DAY WAS]
BIO SUCCESS.
Labor Day celebration at Hedley is reported to have been a great success in
numbers attending and in entertainment.
There was a large contingent from Princeton who would uphold tbe name and
fame of the 'old town.' As the Star is
about to twinkle the 400th time a full
report will be delayed.
In the Freeforall race at the Hedley
Labor Day sports W. Garrison's racer
won the chief event and $100. Miss
Lowe's horse, Keremeos, Miss Innis up,
took first money in ladies' saddle horse
race.
Hedley, with a composite team, won
the baseball match, 20 to 4.   Prize $100.
Particulars of the other events were
not available, our wireless still being out
of tune.

IELAY INSTEAD OF PROMPT
ACCEPTANCE.
The Vancouver City Council is
hesitating  and  in  doubt  over the
proposition made    by   the   Great
Northern  for joint terminal facilities on False  creek tide  flats.    It
ought to be a  question of easy  solution for  a body of business men
who are supposed to be clearmindcd
and decisive when a matter of such
vatt  importance  to the progress of
the city is  presented.     And,   not)
only  is  the city interested in the
proposition but  every  town along
the line  of the railways  is vitally
concerned  in  convenient and adequate terminal facilities.    It is evident  from  the tone of the discussions that the citizens generally and
the City Council  in  particular'are
very  much  self centred  and  over
estimate  their importance.     They
forget that the greatest commercial
city in the world is inland and that
New Westminster  is almost identical with it  as  a.fresh water terminus.     The   stinking mud  flats of
Palse creekwere unimportant until
the railroad  proposition loomed up
and   then there  were millions in it
for private owners aud the city corporation.    It is  a part of the C.P.
R. policy to  obstruct, and if possible  eliminate,  competition.     It  is
■not improbable that  its  opposition
will take form, as already indicated,
in the City Council.    Well, if there
is a remnant  of ordinary business
sagacity left in the citizens of Vancouver  they will  see that no rival
railway  company   drives   away  a
proposition which will be of incalu-
lable benefit to the city.    The C.P.
R. is a pap fed  corporation  which
has   been   milking   Vancouver   by
free   taxation,  appropriations  and
concessions without number.    The
Great  Northern  has  never asked
nor received a cent of bonus or grant
of land from the Province, Dominion or city.    If no inducement will
be given to  a combination of railways  undertaking  huge   terminal
works with the expenditure of vast
sums of money surely  no  reasonable body of men would  embarrass
these railway companies with trifling  objections,  delays  or   sinister
proposals. New Westminster would
be  a   suitable  terminal   point  for
Princeton and Boundary cities, and
is L-bout twelve miles nearer.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
In the agitation begun a few
weeks ago for better police protection it has been said by an official
that the editorial, 'Law and Order,'
appearing in the Star, ' ought not
to have been written.' Reconsideration of the article complained of
serves only to verity the assertions
and deductions therein made, therefore this paper has neither apology
nor retraction to make. On the
contrary, it will make the further
statement that disorder and indecency had become so glaring that,
merchants and others complained
of the injurious effect it had on
business; parents having regard
for the moral welfare of their children and gentlemen who respect
ladies, were all pronounced opponents of the lack of police surveillance. Whether any of these com-,
plainants ran away from their statements in the presence of a police
investigator matters not, the facts
remain. Until this town is incor
porated il is a ward of the provin
cial government and must have that
protection which common decency
and the ordinary ethics of civilization demand.
It is about time for citizens to
consider some suitable manner of
marking the historic entry of the
rails within town limits, thus giv-
iug that connection so often predicted and sighed for. Is there no
local poet to commemorate the event
in immortal rhyme ? And is there
no bust to unveil, no orator to proclaim the virtues of the iron horse ?
Between now and the coming revolution in this district, caused by
the railway, there is only one attitude for all : 'Labor and wait.'

In selecting a location for an ex-
perimentar'farm in the dry belt it
will be necessary to consider the
adaptability of the place or section
for giving lessons in the whole
range of farming. Star ventures
the opinion that no other section in
the interior presents such and so
varied natural features in proper
relation and proportion for the experimentation and study of' mixed
farming. With a good elevation
above sea level, noted dairying possibilities, suitability of climate and
pasturage for horse and cattle raising, poultiy," fruit_ raising, irrigation, overcoming early frosts and
vegetable, grain, and hay raising,
Princeton district possesses all the
requirements which are typical of
the whole interior but which cannot
be found in any one place in such
variety. There is a Dominion meteorological station here which the
Minister of Agriculture may consult for his guidance.

A HOME CURFEW.
Every family should have a curfew bell
and it should 'ring tonight' and all other
nights if needed. The curfews are inexpensive and can be made at home. Take
a piece of siding two feet long and whittle one end to a handle. Take the child
that needs the curfew and bend it over a
barrel. Now take the siding and use it
as a clapper. Put it on hot, dividing the
strokes evenly, and see that none miss.
Good for a boy or girl up to eighteen.
Three applications are warranted to cure
the most pronounced case of street loafing that exists. The music is said to be
more effective than singing: 'Where is
My Wandering Boy Tonight.'—Selected.

'Myrtle,' asked her indulgent uncle,
'how did you manage to spend so much
money while you were at that summer
resort ?'
'I lost the most of it at bridge, uncle,'
answered the petted neice.
'At bridge ! Why, child, yon promised |
me that you wouldn't learn to play that i
game!' f
'I didn't learn it, Uncle George, i!
didn't half learn it. That's why I lost i
so much money,' I

MINES AND MINING.
Capitalists from Minneapolis have recently bought the Blair and Voght coal
properties in Nicola. The properties
eonsist of 8bo acres lying to the north of
the Nicola Valley Coal and Coke Co's
property, and west of the Diamond Vale
coal mine. The interests of the operating company will be in the hands of W.
E. Duncan, M.E.
Big mining deals are in progress in
•Kamloops and that camp is looking better than in many years.
Birkerville is having a very hopeful
season in mining transactions and there
is an agitation for a railway to link it up
with civilization.
The Granby will soon be able with its
enlarged capacity to treat 5000 tons of
ore daily. It will then be the third
largest smelter on the continent.
