SO NEAR YET SO FAR
Railway Dallies Along while
other Places Hunger
For Coal.
Once at Princeton There Would be
Tonnage and Development of
the Mines.
Railroad construction is 'mooching.'
along with a gang of about 150 men
spread over some 25 miles of right of-
way. At the present rate of progress it
will take fifty years to complete the V.,
V. & E. to the coast and then most of
present day cititizens of Princeton will
have become mummies embalmed in the
fire-resisting clay to be found underneath
the town. T.he outlook is not encouraging.
Other towns and  cities are waiting on
the completion of the line to Princeton
as tbe following paragraph in the Spokane
; Spokesman-Review of recent date will
show :
" Coal for domestic use, costing $12 a
ton here last winter will be reduced to
$5 or $56* a ton as soon as transportation^
is secured by the extension of the V.,Vj
& E. railroad to the Princeton, (B.C.)
coal fields."
It is understood a large order for trestle
timber has been left with the Similkameen Lumber Co. and also that a small
gang of rockmen and tunnelmen will
boon b; at work near town.
FUN ON THE DIAMOND.
What promises to be an interesting ball
game will be played next Saturday at
2:30 sharp, Married v. Single, lining up
on their respective sides. From what our-
sporting editor can hear, (he had his ear
to the ground, not to a telephone) a well,
contested match is in sight. I Citizens
should take a half day off and witness
this event as a team will'be picked from
those competing to represent Princeton
1 at Hedley on Labor Day. There is a
movement afoot to equip the J)oys with
uniforms so that they can make a tidy
appearance on the diamond at Hedley.
They certainly deserve the support of the
citizens for winning the series here on
Dominion Day, thereby cleaning up considerable prize lucre and making money
for'investors' on the result. The team
will ma_e a good record in outside places
if properly encouraged at home. Stand
by them. Three cheers for the Princeton
Baseball Team.
TELEPHONE IS WANTED.
J. O. Coulthard and S. P. Gow are busy
getting things in shape in their brickyard
in connection with which the former
left for the coast via Hope Mountains on
Saturday last. Mr. Coulthard would
have no  urgent  need  of going if there
were telephone communication. He has
a brickmaking machine on the way from
Vancouver but as he could only trace it
from here by mail he concluded it surer
and as expeditious to go in search of it
himself. The unexplainable negligence
of the superintendent of the line, of the
member for Yale-Cariboo and of the Department of Public Works will not help
the Liberal cause at next elections and is
a source of great annoyance and humiliation to staunch and proven Liberals in
this section.
RELICS OF EARLY DATS.
Collecting Pictures of Pioneers  and
Early History for Archives.
The Provincial Government has begun
the work of collecting material relative
to the early days of B. C, which will in
elude relics Of historical interest, such as
scenic pictures, photographs of noted
pioneers, manuscripts, etc. R. E. Gos-
nell, the well known editor and Provincial Archivist and E. O. Scholefield, Provincial Librarian,, are visiting various
portions of the province making selection of such worthy matter and things as
may seem to them of value for a permanent exhibition in the government museum at Victoria. The result'of their
efforts will be placed on view-at the exhibition at Westminster, this fall. The1
collectors would find the Similkameen
interesting in Indian archaeology and
legendary subjects. In Princeton and
vicinity some very prettv scenic pictures;
could be obtained from A. Murchie, our
local photographer of high repute, besides there are photos of the old pioneers
and early day goldhu'nters which, of
course, would include such familiar
names as Robert Stevenson, Judge Murphy, James .Wallace and Mrs. Allison,
the latter, it is said, has written some interesting pages on Indian life and habits.
There is als.o considerable material awaiting, the writer on peculiar mineral formations, of rare animals, curious vegetables and some queer people.
MATTER OF BUSINESS.
A good suggestion by agentleman who!
looks on the practical and utilitarian'
sides of things has been made regarding
the telephone line in town. Since the
Superintendent won't put in a telephone
for public use in Princeton he proposes
that the laundries, hotels and private'
families lease the wire from the government for drying clothes on. A public,
clothes line with all kinds of garments
on it fluttering in the breeze would be a
unique spectacle and might prove an
attraction for tourists. Happy thought!
Let us have a public clothes line Mr.
Supe., if you please, and increase the
revenue of the country !

THE ACCOMMODATING EDITOR.
A correspondent wants to know, among
other things : " How can a Liberal editor
write for a Conservative newspaper?"
That's easv. How can a lawyer plead the
case   of a   man   he   knows is guilty or
wrong ? There are two sides to every
question and a capable man can argue
from either side with force and reason.
The Hon. D. W, Higgins, ex-speaker of
the local house and a noted Tory, was
editor .of the Grit'y Vancouver World
and Editor Lugrin of the Tory Colonist
was, and we believe is, a Liberal.
LOOKING OVER RIDING,
Liberal-Conservative Candidate Pays
First Visit of Campaign.
Martin Burrell, the Liberal-O^oHserv-—
tive candidate for Yale-Cariboo, Was in
town Monday, leaving on Tuesday for
Hedley and;..the Boundary. His visit is
of a socio-politico nature,' hard campaigning and speechmaking'coming later
with the accumulated forde of oratorical
aigument and persuasion for which heT&K'
noted. To know and meet Mr. Burrell
is a pleasure, differing as he does, from
the ordinary candidate, who affects to
know it all and a little more. He fully,
expects'to win Yale-Cariboo in the contest which is now assuredly drawing nigh.
Two things are certain, Mr. Burrell has
gained in his popularity.and he has not
alienated a single supporter during the
past four years. As how',' Yale-Cafibdo
election in 1904 was deferred until after
the Dominion general elections. In common with . all political students and candid voters Mr. Burrell realizes that, an
honest and fair expression of the ballot
cannot be obtained in a deferred election.
AltaOst needless to 'say, he will, if elected
immediately wipe off the .statute"giving
Yale-Cariboo the privilege of holding ifs
election two weeks after the others are
'held. There is no reasonable justification for postponement and ' Mr. Burrell
commends" the action of Smith Curtis in
Kootenay, who has discarded the deferred .
custom there and placed his opponent,
Mr. Goodeve, on equal and fair running
chances. The Conservative candidate for
Yale-Cariboo is a man of unimpeachable-
character, his • personal rectitude being
an asset which is coming, more and more
into demand by the free, independent
and intelligent electorate throughout
Canada and the world.
.PROROGATION AND ELECTIONS.
Prorogation of the Commons at Ottawa
has been made and members are all busy
now putting on war paint. Elections are
likely to be held this fall; that is, if Ihe
crops are generally good throughout
theDominion. Poor crops are a deter-:*
mining factpr in the postponement pf
elections and it may be that the elections
will not be held until next spring, after
another short session of the House. As
the Star does not enjoy the usual confi
dence or patronage of the government at
Ottawa, thanks to the member, it will
have to embark in the business of prophesying.

A LIVE BOARD OF TRADE.
The Board of Trade having been
once more resuscitated, snatched
from the very jaws of death, as it
were, it will be the duty of every
member to work faithfully for the
success of this institution and the
general good of the town. It is
too much to hope or expect that
men will all agree on any given
subject or matter, but all can at
least respect the honest opinions of
a fellow member no matter how
divergent their views may be. It
is doubtful if ever a board of trade
had such trials and struggles for
existence as that of Princeton. In
its darkest hours there was always
a nucleus of resolute members to
rally round it and put it on its
"feet" once more. With an influx
of new blood and harmony prevailing the Board again sets sail
under fair auspices. One of the
most pressing needs of Princeton
today is advertising literature. Thi_
is a matter that is of importance to
not only the members but to all
citizens and residents of the district.
Princeton is the only town in the
Similkameen that has done nothing
in the way of special advertising
and publicity. It need not surprise
anyone, therefore, if settlers and
intending investors get 'off' at the
towns which have sufficient energy
and enterprise to give a special invitation in booklet or folder form.
It is the custom nowadays for every
town making pretensions to progress to have its boosting club, its
board of trade, its commerce club,
its publicity committee, its promotion committee, &c, any one of
which would be sufficient for the
needs of a small town. The printing of an illustrated booklet by a
first class establishment will cost
".less than if done in a poor shop,
."hence, it will be well to patronize
the best bouse in the trade.
each addressed paper at the office
of publication and the subsequent
undoing of package and cancellation of stamp by the postmaster are
altogether too tedious for 20th century postal methods generally. The
one-cent charge is a discrimination
against the weekly newspaper, inasmuch as the daily has no such
burden. In its sphere the weekly
is just as important as the daily.
It publishes matter issued by the
government without charge and it
disseminates much literature of public use and information which the
government would otherwise be at
the expense of distributing. The
weekly of many hundreds or thousands of a circulation or even in a
small newspaper such as the Star
where one poor mortal has to "fight
beasts," stick type, lick an occasional refractory reader, lick stamps
and write satisfactory marriage descriptions and .obituaries, as well as
criticise the government, it is too
great an imposition to expect the
struggling weekly to submit to this
further duty of licking stamps on
every paper sent to the United
States. With such a large staff of
experts one would think that the
P.O. Department could "overcome
the cumbersome method of licking
stamps on newspapers by some
readier process. It would be far
simpler and much more satisfactory
to bulk each issue. In justice, however, the P.O. Department should
not try to make a profit out of any
class of newspapers. They are the
only recognized disseminators of
news and their efforts are mainly
directed to the advancement of the
public good.
CUMBERSOME POSTAL REGULATIONS.
After a year's trial of the postai
regulation requiring a one cent
stamp on all weekly papers posted
from the office of publication to the
United States it is, in the humble
opinion of the Star, a very awkward and cumbersome way of increasing the revenue or of mitigating any of the evils of advertising foreign goods or the suppression of the inflow of indecent literature.    The affixing of a stamp to
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One of the best means of learning the alive or dead condition of
a town is by merely glancing at the
advertising columns of its newspaper. A scrawney, ill paid advertising patronage has a bad effect
on outside readers. It is the only
means they have of taking the
measure of the people who reside
where it is printed. To them it is
the telescope with which they view
the distant townspeople and as sure
as death and taxes they will be
guided by what they see in the
local paper. It is a retrogressive
policy to cut off one's nose to spite
the face. A town cannot thrive
unless there are advertisers representative of every business and publicity given to every resource. It
is a condition of western progress
that it should be so. Gentle reader
far away, do not think that Princeton, though shy of many outward
signs of progress, is not a good
town to invest in.

(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology- _e°graphy, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is coucededly
the
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts'
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copDer mines.
The metallurgist needs the book for,
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells'
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannot'
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of con-'
densed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper milling shares.

money, but order the book sent you, all

PEOPLE WILL TALK.
You   may   get through the world, but
'twill be very slow
If gyou   listen   to   all   that   is   said   as
you go;
You'll be worried and  fretted and kept
in a stew,
For   meddlesome     tongues   must   have
something to do—
And people will talk.
If quiet and modest, you'll have it presumed
That   your   humble   position   is    only
assumed,
You're "a wolf in sheep's clothing, or else
you're a fool;
But   don't get excited,, keep perfectly J
cool—
For people will talk.
If  threadbare your dress and old-fashioned your hat—
Someone    will   surely    take   notice   of
that,
And  hint rather strong that you can't j
pay your way;
But don't get excited whatever they say,.
For people will talk. j

Four sharp taps on the bell, with slight
pause between each four, will indicate
that the fire is in Ward I. Two sharp

locate the fire in Ward 2.
Continuous moderate ringing of the
bell will be used for meetings of any
kind, for public demonstrations or for
giving the correct time daily. Toiling
for the dead will be one stroke of the
bell with measured intervals of ten seconds, ad.
