COAL IN BIG DEMAND
Every Mine Taxed to Fullest
Capacity to Meet Need
of Prairies.
Vermilion  Forks Co. Want Cars  to
Begin Shipping—Princeton Coal
Equals Best.
Superintendent Graham, of the V F
M. Co., has recently visited some of the
coal camps of B C. and Alberta and finds
an enormous demand for domestic fuel
in an ever increasing market. The prairie provinces, so rapidly filling with settlers, tax the coal output to the limit
Should the winter be severe Mr. Graham
predicts a coal famine, so great is the
demand now. The V.F.M. Co. will be
ready to ship coal as soon as cars are
available. Princeton coal will stand
competition with any'ttrat Mr. Graham
saw in his travels and is superior to most
of that supplied to Spokane.
Mining operations are expected to begin
shortly at the-North Fork coalmines.
Manager Fraser recently arrived and a
small working frrce will soon be employed in building a road and otherwise
making ready for actual coal production
and coking.
Bonniver and Fearless have finished
their contract of extending the tunnel
50 feet on the Columbia Copper Co's
mine, Friday Creek. This property is
being developed in anticipation of shipping facilities next year.

to know the business occupations represented in Princeton the following, subject to correction, is published for the
guidance of enquirers abroad : 4 general
stores ; 3 hotels ; 3 bakers ; 1 restaurant;
2 fruit and candy stores ; 1 drug and stationery store ; 2 livery stables; 1 blacksmith shop ; 1 bank ; 1 butcher shop ; 1

1 second hand store, coming. It will be

CAPITAL IS WANTED.
Tobacco chewers are known to have
weakened eyesight, and no wonder. A
dog running along the street the other
day caught a volume of expectoration
jn his right eye from a chewer. At first
the poor brute shook his head till his ears
cracked like the flipper on a horses fidd-
dle, then he yelped and just as the copperas got its work in he stood stiff for a
second and then commenced turning a
series of revolutions and corners the like
of which was never witnessed before.
Spitting is prohibited by law in certain
places Star would make it an offence
to squirt tobacco juice within seven miles
of any living ereature. It is the copperas
which affects the eyesight of chewers.
Note how highly mineralized everything
is in this country, even the trees are cop-
perized. Capital ii required to develop
our great mineral resources.    Advt.
WANTS POTATO MABKET.
Editor Star—Sir : I do not know
whether you have a board of trade in
Princeton or not, ao I take the liberty of
asking you to be kind enough to either
let me know if there is such a body iii
your town, or, if not, to diectmeto
somebody who can answer the following
questions :
In the Similkameen Star of the 17th
ult. I read: 'First ca-loail of potatoes
was landed in Princeton last week.'
Now, I should like to know : Who
bought them? What are they worth?
Where did they come from ? This will
show if it is possible for us to ship potatoes to tne Similkameen. Thanking you
in anticipation, lam yours truly,
A. MULLER.
Bridesville, Pec. 4, 1909.
[There is a board of trade—see ad. in
Star. We respectfully suggest correspondence with advertisers in this paper as
to possibility of selling potatoes here.
Perhaps some reader will furnish all the
information required.—Ed.]
\SEEXS WIDER FIELD.
Dr.^Wp-Jllans was in town Sunday bidding gcfodbye prior to leaving Hedley for
the coast. He was the first doctor to
locate in Princeton and among the earliest in the rush of fortune hunters to these
parts a decade ago. For several years he
has been physician at the mines and mill
of the Daly Reduction Co., now the
Hedley Gold Mines Go., besides having
a lucrative practice ill the town, to which
he removed from ^Princeton some seven
or eight years S$go. Dr. Whillans is an
earnest and successful practitioner, enjoying the loyal confidence of a large
clientele throughout the Similkameen
and carries with him the sincere respect
of the people generally and the best
wishes of many staunch friends. His
family will reside in Victoria this winter
while he expects to make a trip to the
Orient or the Antipodes, making Prince
Rupert the ultimate objective point. Dr.
McEwen takes over his practice pro tem.

John Ruskin said there was no room

struggle for a place; but surely it will
prevail.
Christmas, with its regular crop of festivities, is drawing near. The unity with

SANTA CLAUS HEARD FROM.
A wireless metaphorical message has
been received from Santa Claus headquarters away up at the. head of Granite
Creek among the tall pines and the magnificent moss covered spruce. He says
he has had a bad cold but expects to be
in good shape for Christmas. He regrets
that he has received no notice of the
usual public Christmas tree for his
beloved children. However, he will
come on the swift winged Boreas with
ten reindeer laden with good things for
the children, which he will distribute at
the homes of good boys and girls. Next
year he may come in one of those things
they call flying machine or 'aero.' Star
advises him to stick to the reindeer and
bells ; they are more poetic or romantic
and less liable to headers. God bless old
Santa and all his dear little children.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The coming year of 1910, now a
couple of weeks distant, will mark
the new era of progress made possible by the advent- of the railway.
At present there are indications of
coal and ore mining activity which
will give employment to a large
number of men and cause the disbursement of great sums of money
for equipment and supplies. There
are some mining deals of the first
magnitude now being quietly carried into effect and others are in
the primary stages of negotiation.
Real estate is fairly active for this
time of year and residential buildings are springing up on tbe back
streets. The construction of the
railway west of Princeton is an
assured thing and means that this
place will be the base of supplies
and official headquarters. So that,
the most. hardened pessimist must
admit that the prospects are good
and the progressive situation one of
inviting excellence, rarely equalled
The investor and homebuilder could
scarcely have better opportunities
than are now presented in Princeton.
It is difficult to   understand why
an institution such  as  tbe board oi
trade has not a larger  membership.
It is the only  means of presenting
the requirements of the   district  in
systematic  form  and  with the en-
dorsation of a body composed of the
best business talent  and most progressive    citizens   in   every   town,
city or district throughout the country has  an   important influence on
the government or any company or
corporation with which it may have
to make  representations  in behalf
of the   general   public.     It   is the
one  body  in   Princeton which.has
accomplished  things  by resolution
to  the   Dominion  and   Provincial
governments.    Yet, strange to say,
it is knocked  by  those  who have
benefitted by its efforts toward  the
improvement of the town   and the
betterment  of   the  whole  district
There are farmers and mining men
who  should  be   active members cf
the board, protecting their own  interests and influencing measures fcr
the general good.
places. All travellers have experienced that feeling of loneliness and
gloom which spring from the unattractive conditions of a town.
Sidewalks, water works ahd electric
light are necessary for the convenience, comfort and health of the
people. If these necessary and
essential things for town life are
lacking in Princeton the effect will
be found in slow growth and a puny,
struggling community. The most
pressing need is for sidewalks on
both sides of Bridge Street from
bridge to bridge and the extension
along Vermilion Av. to the railway
station. Waterworks are promised
in the spring.
The appointment of J. A. Mac-
donald, K.C., to the chief justiceship of the new court of appeal
removes a pillar of the Liberal party
to a mOre sereue sphere and one,
no doubt, more congenial to his
quiet temperament. His loss to
the Liberal party will, be irreparable, for it was by his eminent respectability and clean life that he
gave tone to the party and attracted
to it men of like calibre. To know
Chief Justice Macdonald is to know
a gentleman of rare worth of character, whose presence is an inspiration and a blessing. The other
members of the appellate court are
W. A. Galliher, Vancouver, and
Justices Martin and Irving transferred from the Supreme Court.
To fill the vacancies on the Supreme Court bench Denis Mur*. hy,
Ashcroft, and F. B. Gregory, Victoria/ have been appointed. All
the new appointees were stalwarts
in the Liberal ranks, the inference
being that partizan politics are necessary as a stepping stone to the
bench, a condition that ought not
to be.

Lord Strathcona has given a large sum
of money to be used.it> the improvement
of the physical and intellectual capabilities of children while^at "school. He also
hopes to foster a spirit of patriotism in
the boys, leading them to realize that the
first duty of a free citizen is to be prepared to defend his country—to which
end all boys should, as far as possible, be
given an opportunity of acquiring a fair
acquaintance, while at school, with military drill and rifle shooting. His Lordship does not seek to make the military
training compulsory, leaving that for
parents to decide. ji-''-
