TUNNEL IS FEASIBLE
Engineer Discovers N£w Route
for V.,V. & E. with
Easy Grade.
:<ft         ,     Jj
Tunnel, Eight Miles-Long, Saves 30
Miles, Making It 124 Miles
to Vancouver.
J. H. Kennedy and his party returned
last Wednesday from making an exploratory survey for a new route for the V.,
V. & E. It is understood that the expedition was entirely successful, due to the
tenacity with which Mr. Kennedy has
always held to this route and also to his
sound judgment and ability as an engineer. ,
The new, or 'tunnel route' as it will be
better known and described, diverges
from the old' located route at Otter Flat
following the Tulameen .river to the
mouth of Eagle creek, thence along the
creek for about I mile, where the tunnel
begins and extends for eight miles to the
Coquihalla. "I'llft funnel will have a
grade Uf aCout I per cent, which furnishes
a complete solution of the problem confronting engineers with over a 2 per cent
grade and a long, circuitous route via
Otter valley and the Coldwater.
"*Tm¥,tunnel**,route will reduce the distance between Princeton and Vancouver
from 154 to 124 miles, a net saving of 30
miles. Its cost will not be less than
$1,500,600, that figure being made possible by a recent invention which bores
tunnels at the average rate of one foot
per hour. It would take about 5 years to
build boring from both ends and the
middle. During its construction a temporary line could be'-built to accommodate pressing need of early connection
with the coast. It is expected the line of
the tunnel will foe located immediately.
When built this tnnnel will be the
longest in America, followed by the
Hoosac, 4% miles; Cascade, on N.P. railway, 9,850 feet in length. In Europe
the Simplon is the longest tunnel in the
world, being, iz.4 miles long, and the
Mont Cenis, 7.6 miles.
GRANITE CREEK HEWS.
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
Granite Creek, Aug. 30.—D. Tyrrell
paid Granite a visit last week to look
over some mining property in the interest of a coast company. He, Jtated that
it was his intention to return in a short
while and put some men to work.
A. E. Paulds, M.E., of Vancouver, and
Mr. Gray were in Granite for two days
last week. They spent the time looking
over the coal property and getting samples from different parts of the works.
Mr. Paulds stated that work would be
resumed at the North Fork mines in the
near future.   'We still live in hopes.'
R. A. Lambert has finished the new
flume and dam which takes the place of
the one washed out during high water.
He will soon begin to sink for bed rock,
after which will come the harvest of
gold. •   •    .
! Mr. and Mrs. Brookes returned to Tur
lameen on Saturday last. Mrs, Jas.Brown
has-«0*ed-for-"the-balance ofthe-Tseason
to tbe.pioperty of R. A. Lambert.
A social evening was recently spent at
the Granite hotel. Dancing and other
pastimes were kept up until a late hour.
Owing to dry weather the soup springs
at Welldo can hardly raise a bubble.
Mrs. F. P. Cook is visiting at the'camp
of R. A. Lambert.
H. McCallister has recently returned
from Champion Creek where he has been
working.
ORANGE LODGE INSTITUTED.
The iugtftation of an""Orange Lodge
in JWW!eeton last Wednesday night by
fimvacxsX Organizer WJutjbley marks- a
record for societies or associations in
towns of this size, there being now three
of the large fraternal orders located here.
The Orange Order is a secret political
organization which aims to support and
defend the King and the Protestant religion. The first lodge of Orangemen
was organized in Loughgall, Co. Armagh,
Ireland, in 1795. The Order is about
300,000 strong in Canada and reaches out
to all' English speaking countries. A
Lodge has been established at Keremeos
and another will be established soon at
Hedley. Following are the officers of
Princeton Lodge : C. iL./Cummings, W.
M.; V. L. Tway, D.M.;lXev. J. Thurburn
Conn, Chaplain; P. Russell, R.S. & F.S.;
J. L. Huston, T.; W. W. Martin, L.; W.

SEPTTJAGINT TO MARRY.
Hon. E. Dewdney has left for England
on an important mission ; one in which
a host of friends in two hemispheres will
wish him every happiness. He will take
unto himself a wife from among the
daughters of Japheth " now resident, in
the British Isles. On his return he will
spend a portion of the honeymoon in
this section. Across the Atlantic ocean
[and across the sea of matrimony the Star
bids him bon voyage. 'Governor* Dewdney is rising of seventy years of age, but
he is vigorous and well preserved and
like many of his old tillicums has good
'leather' in his constitution.
Constable Dinsmore left for Midway
yesterday
The pack bridge at 12-Mile creek, on
Hope trail, is reported to be iu unsafe
condition.
MINES AND MINING
LeadrMolybdenum with Other
Values ire Ore Found
Near Whipsaw.
Tulameen   and Summit Camp give
Great Promise of Developing
Into Mines.
i Sam Spencer was in town Monday
from the Marion group of mineral claims
on which he has been working for the
past month. At a depth of 22 feet he
uncovered wulfenite ore, samples "of
which he produced. He is confident of
having struck a mine that .will compare
favorably with the big mines in extent
and value. The ore is high grade in
lead and molybdenum with which are
associated other mineral values. Wulfenite is composed of molybdenum 34.25
and lead 64.42. Tungsten in some form
is usually found with this .class of ore.
The Marion group is in the same mineral
field as the silver-lead strike recently
made on the Whipsaw. The attention
of prospectors has been directed to this
field and many claims have been staked.
A mining camp of undoubted prominence and worth is in the making here,
requiring capital to develop and railway
transportation to market the product.
Charley Connell brought down some
very fine looking silver-lead ore from
Summit camp last week, taken from the
Celtic Chief. He has been doing some
work on it recently and is much encouraged with the showing of ore, w'hich
runs as high as $4°° per ton." ' Mr. Connell is in a position to ship ore as soon as
transportation is afforded.
.' Wm. and Max Wilson have taken
some exceptionally good ore from the
Iron Mask, situated on the south fork of
the Tulameen river, five miles above the
falls. The ore is copper-gold, containing
also values in silver and platinum. A
large body of this ore is evidently in
the dyke which is observed on the eastern slope of Hope mountains, extending
many miles along the base of tbe range.
Copper glance is found in the samples
which may be taken to indicate concentration at depth. The recently discovered new - route for the V.,V. & E. will
give transportation within a few miles
for the or*S ■
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Labor Day j will be celebrated next
Monday and Tuesday in Hedley. It is a
legal holiday.
Including the Board of Trade Princeton has ten organizations, viz: Oddfellows, Freemasons, Orangemen, Liberal
Association, Conservative Association,
Ladies Aid, Tennis Club, Fire Brigade,
Gun Club, Board of Trade. This is going
some for a town our size and denotes
unity and progress.
Following in the wake of the agitation
begun by the Board of Trade in July last
for better police protection, Constable L
A. Dinsmore, of Midway, acting under
orders of his chief, arrived last Wednesday to investigate the recommendations
made by the Board. Thanks to Mr.
Shatford and the. efficiency of "Constable
Dinsmore "a happy solution of the vexed
question of better 'police protection' has
been found.
Gordon Murdoch has. begun work on
the pack bridge at Ashnola and will employ several men for about a month in
constructing it.
As a result of representations and
the wishes of principals concerned itjis
expected that a change will soon be made
in the supply of Princeton-Hedley Presbyterian missionary field.
GAME LAWS, IN BRIEF.    %
The shooting and hunting season is
to open on the dates undermentioned and
sportsmen are advised to observe them
as wardens are instructed to enforce the
law. The Game Protection Act states
that it is unlawful to kill Mountain
Sheep until the 31st Aug., 1911. Duck;
Geese and Snipe may be shot after the
1st Sept. to 28th Feb. Grouse of all
kinds, except Prairie Chicken, may be
shot from the 15th Oct. to 31st Dec. Deer
may be killed from 1st Sept. to 15th Nov.
ANOTHER NEWSPAPER,
Nicoja Advertiser, Vol. I, No. I, is the
latest/exchange received at the Star office.
It nrpublished at Middlesboro and will
no doubt, serve the interests of that
place and the whole'country with credit
to'all parties. It has a good, live patronage from advertisers and as a consequence
its pages are plump with local news and
other reading matter. It contains eight
pages the same size as those of tbe Star
and is altogether a neat and thrifty looking newspaper.
MONET LOOSENS DP.
Charley Willarson arrived last Wednesday from a short vacation at the coast,
during which he saw the A.Y.P. and
many other attractions. Vancouver is
undergoing a marvellous transformation,
Mr. Willarson says, and is destined to be
the 'Frisco of the north. He expresses
unabated faith in Princeton district and
looks for a revival in mining and commercial circles. Since the great panic
when many 'rubes' buried their money
in the ground, money is beginning to
loosen up, in fact it is so loose and elusive that one can hardly hold it while
taking a holiday. Mr. Willarson returned alone, contrary to rumors'which
gave rise to a high social flutter. Better
lnck next time. Bail's;

WHERE TO LOCATE EXPERIMENTAL FARM.
As it looks now Princeton is not
likely to get either the proposed
university or the mining school,
—the reason assigned being that it is
too far from the capital. This reason could not possibly apply were
the V.,V. & E. constructed to the
-coast. Well, if Princeton cannot
make its claim good in the eyes of
the commissioners . appointed to
select a universitjwsitey it ought not
-to deter citizens from making effort
"to acquire some of thi! good things
going the 'rounds.' It has been
decided by tbe Dominion government to establish another experi
mental farm in this province. An
effort is being made by certain
newspapers and public bodies to get"
the farm located at the coast, in the
wet^hett, in which the present one
at.Agassiz is located. It is difficult
to find any other reason for locating a second farm in the wet belt
than that of. hoggishness on the
part of those referred to. All the
experimentation necessary to test
the soil and humid climate west of
the Cascade range may be done
and is effectively done at Agassiz.
It would be folly to waste money on
another farm that could not demonstrate anything further than the
one in use by. reason of the similarity of climate, soil and general
•conditions. - tujik
Princeton is situated in the dry
belt, which extends all over the
interior. Its soil and climate present a totally different phase of
agricultural conditions and possibilities to that of the coast with its
much less acreage. Farming, including fruit producing, is depend
ent on irrigation here and the lessons to be learned regarding this
important adjunct of soil cultivation can best be imparted by practical demonstrations in the dry belt.
Princeton district offers unequalled
advantages for location of the experimental farm. The railroad is
here and the town is geographically
central. The Board of Trade can
help in this matter.
REFORM IN OUR LEGISLATIVE BODIES.
In the coming session of parliament it is sincerely hoped that
legislation looking toward complete
change in the constitution of the
Senate and of radical reforms in the
House of Commons will, at least,
be discussed, if not enacted. Any
tyro knows that tbesystem of mak
ing senators is a most precarious
one. Under the existing custom
as soon as a new government takes
up the reins the work of changing
the party complexion of the senate-
begins. From being all tories, now
it is being turned into a grit debating society. Nothing that the
House of Commons may now do in
which party and political supremacy
is involved, but will be sanctioned
by the Senate. The same thing
would obtain with any other party
in power. It is to eliminate the
dangers of collusion and compact
during crises, when the welfare of
the country may be sacrificed for
the advantages of party, that tbe
alarum is now sounded for recon-
stitution.
Canada is now putting on the
robes of nationhood and she can
avoid the evils which have har-
rassed other countries through lack
of properly constituted governing
bodies. Human .nature is such that
the purity and efficiency of any
public servant, be he a leader or
humble employe, often fails when
the temptatiou to take from the
public what he would not dareto
take from private" individuals and
corporations. Why doos it cost
nearly double to run, say a government telephone line, that a private,
owned one does, and why are the
business methods of any government inferior to those of the corporation or individual ? Simply
this : the government" official giffij
erally holds his position through
tavoritism, just as the senator does,
and not upon merit. He knows
that the people, the public; are long-
suffering and do not oust servants
for the first or even the hundredth
offence ; he wastes time and money
if he does not actually steal and
these lead to lax, careless and dilatory, business methods. No commercial enterprise coii|d thrive if
conducted like some of our gov-}
ernmental departments. And here
lie some of the chief reasons for
opposition to government ownership of public utilities.
As formerly, suggested in these
columns : Canada is too much governed. There are too many legislators and too many political bosses.
By reducing members of parliament
and senators one half and paying
them a fair day's wage for a fair
day's stipulated work, as is done
with any workingman, there wW 65?
some hope of getting value for the
money the people put into government. In the senate and commons
a few of the members do the work
the remainder drawing pay for
—nothing. The people are not receiving value for the cost of legislation ; the same thing permeates
every branch of public service from
the fountain head down. Sir Wilfrid L-aurier knows the necessity
for legislative reform. Will he dare
to make a step in this directihn ?

September i, 1909.
THE PHILOSOPHY OP LIPE.
The forked tongue of slander is never
so happy as when it is besliming some
person whose wholesome character is the
envy of the vicious.
•Philosophy of life' is putting into practise those virtues which emanate from the
heart—practise, or believe, what you
preach if you would have followers, or
converts.
It is the only way some people can get
even the faintest notice—knock.
• True criticism is known by its ability
to build better and dig deeper than the
person or thing criticized.
• It is not only very bad manners but a
sign of lack of culture to talk or write
of oneself, except in business or love
.affairs.
\ The editorial 'we' and 'I' are obsolete
.—anything that savors of egoism is not
i employed where literary style has prece-
. jdence over intrusive vanity.
• Obedience is a lost art—only heh-
-■■flecked husbands and dull babies are
.obedient.
; One may size-up the brains beneath by
■the style of the hat.
j Better to reserve opinion thau blurt
out something that will stamp you as
both ignorant and blunt.
