PROVINCIAL HOUSE IS
BUSY WITH THE
MILK SUPPLY
CAUSE   OF    EPIDEMICS
Revision of Civil Service Salaries—Members Attend
Party Meetings
(Staff Correspondence of Star)
Victoria, B C, Feb. 4 —The cow, that
noble animal s.cretingthe glandular fluid
with which we dilute our coffee, her
master ihe agriculturist and the milkman,
all came in fora grilling in the House on
Monday, when the report of the Milk
Commission, appointed over six months
ago to investigate the operation and
source of supply of this important and
necessary food, was presented for the
consideration of the members.
The worship of the golden calf in
Egypt, it is said, called down a severe
retribution upon the heads of the erring
Israelites, but it was shown that the milk
of the calf's mother had brought down
scarlet fever upon New Westminsterites,
and the milk has also been responsible
for a very heavy death rate among infants,
the province over.
In the case of New Westminster Scarlet
Fever epidemic, a report compiled by Dr.
McQuarrie, the medical health officer
for that city was read in which he attributed the presence of the disease
directly to impure milk supplied by a
farm in Surrey municipality.
Dr. McQuarrie stated that on Saturday,
January 4, one case of scarlatina had
been reported to him, and from that date
to the 17th inst. 48 more cases had been
brought in. Tracing the source cf con
tagion he had found that three milk
dealers in the city had been securing
milk from a certain farm in Surrey, and
o_ visiting this place he had found two
children of the proprietor in an advanced
stage of the disease. He.had immediately
quarantined the place and destroyed the
morning supply of milk which.j^as just
going out to New Westminster.
The mortality of among infants as
compared with the total death rate of all
ages throughout the province was most
startling, according to the statistics
compiled by tbe commission, it being
shown that during the year 1912 the
visitations of tbe grim reaper to the
various cities had been in many cases
at the instance of impure milk, which
bad done its work among the little ones
The following is the total death rate as
compared with infant deaths attributable
to impure milk: Vancouver, 49 Qut of
1.719;   Victoria,   18  out   of   617;    New
Westminster, 8 out of 506 ; Kamloops, 18
out of 551 ; Nanaimo, 8 out of 272.
Among the recommendations brought
in by the commission were: rigid inspection of slaughtered cattle, supervision of
supply and methods of production, transportation, and storage, restriction of importation in low grade products, and the
appointment of sufficient analysts to carry
out the necessary work, and who were
also to be empowered to mike compulsory
tests. The slaughter of cattle affected
with tubercular diseases, and compensation to the owners of such cattle, were
other proposals brought in by the
commission.
Another important amendment to ex
istiug legislation was brought in by the
attorney-general, on Monday, in the form
of several alterations to the Act governing
the operation of pool rooms. In this a
flat rate of $50 for license in place of the
old rate of $5 per table was recommended.
Mr. Bowser pointing out that the amendment had been brought in to meet the
requirements of conditions arising from
the manner in which these places of
business were conducted.
On Tuesday, whilst the members from
Vancouver were visiting the m .inland for
the purpose of attending the a'nnual
meeting of their party organization, the
Hon. Dr. Young succeeded in havlug his
bill to amend the Civil Service Act,
passed its second reading.
This bill provides for an entire revision
of the salaries paid to civil servants
throughout the piovince. Under the
present act junior clerks and stenographers enter the service at the salary of
$35 Per month, receiving annually a rise
of $4 per month thereafter until a
maximum of $75 is reached. The new
act will allow these juniors to enter at a
salary of $60, with an annual increase
of $5 per month until a maximum of
$80 is reached. Provision is also made
for extra renutneration for first and
second class clerks as well.
Sir Richard McBride, supported the
amendment in an eloquent speech, called
forth in reply to statements made by
Mr. Parker Williams, the member for
Newcastle.
A BOLD COUGAR.
A. F. McKanzie, the 'Laird cfTnlla
hard,' is a dead shot, otherwise a sad tale
would h .ve resulted from an encounter
with a big cougar last week. While
cutting wood near home a cougar sprang
onto the end of the tree he felled and
began making faces at him, crouching
the while and licking his jaws as if
hungry. The laird usually packs his
trusty rifle and this time it saved him a
serious misup Grabbing the weapon he
took de.dly aim, plunking the feline
monster one tn the mouth knocking out
a tooth and carrying awa\ the rear of the
animal's head—cougar was a corpse.
The beast measured 8 ft. 3 in. from tip to
tip and has fine fur. Mr. McKenzie will
obtain the bountv, $15, besides selling the
the skin for about $20.
MINING POLICY MAY
INCREASE OUTPUT
MANY MILLIONS
BIG GEOLOGICAL MEET
Voigt Camp Deal Incomplete,
Mining News Scarce,
Local Notes
Mining Committee of the legislature is
urged to adopt a policy that will increase
the mineral output of the province from
foo.ooo.ooo to $100,000,000 a year.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. keep
a steady output of about 300 tons of coal
daily. When the Wenatchee branch of
the Great Northern is finished a big
country will be opened up for Princeton.
Fred Keffer mining engineer and
geologist for the B.C. Copper Co., was at
Voigt camp and Copper mountain this
week on an official visit to the company's
properties. Drilling and assay work are
going on steadily and the ground tested
for body. The ore is somewhat refractory
and the values largely hinge on smelting
qualities Referring to the Voigt camp
deal, Mr Keffer stated that it was still
' up in the air.'
E. F. Voigt returned from tbe coast and
went to Voigt Camp last Friday.
By a move in the form of a petition
which starts at the head of the lakes
another attempt is being made to induce
the Dominion government to reduce permanently tbe duty on cement from 50
cents a barrel. Tbe petition, which is
said to have a large number of signatures
of both contractors andconsumer through-
the Canadian prairie west, is to be
presented to the government early in the
spring.
The annual general meeting of the B.C.
Portland Cement Co., was held in Vancouver yesterday.
Oscar Lachmund, the new general
manager of the B C Copper Co. at Greenwood, was in Princeton on his first visit
to these parts in the early p.rt of the
week. Before coming to Greenwood he
was at Salt Lake city, Utah, in charge of
mining operations for the Guggenheims.
The geological congress of delegate
from all parts of the world at Toronto
next summer, will be of great importance
to all mineral sections of the country. A
party of them will be conducted through
the Similkameen. Some effort will, no
doubt, be made to afford them every information regarding Princeton and
district Samples   of   ore   and   other
minerals should be assembled here for
their inspection, then they will be in
shape to carry with them tangible impressions of the country.
REAL ESTATE NOTES.
D. M. French has sold his lot and
building on Bridge street, next to A. E.
Howse & Co., to a Penticton party
through McLean & Russell, real estate
agents.
J. B. Wood sold his house and two lots
on Endcliffe avenue, to D. M. French,
who will occupy it as a residence.
The sale of lots I and 2, block 10, for
$5,200 cash, is perhaps the high water
mark of prices for real estate in Princeton.
It is an indication of what may be ex
pected when property is in boom
demand.
Major T. E. Naish has purchased the
French block through McLean & Russell,
the real estate agents.
McLean & Russell have put through
several real estate deals recently, among
them being lots 17 and 18, block 24, $600
cash ; and lots 27 and 30, block 19, $1150
Five lots in Ashnola were recently sold
to local parties through the agents,
McLean & Russell.
RAILWAY POINTS.
Weidenhoff and Jacobson, contractors
on the V., V. & E. beyond Coalmont,
have two steam shovels at work, and also
employ a considerable fcrce of graders:
The sevete weather and snow has hin"
dered construction.
The Great Northern has agreed to
complete the Oroville—Wenatchee
branch in 1913. When done the Oroville
people are going to celebrate the event.
E. E. Coley is still surveying routes for
the Kettle Valley around Copper
mountain.
Canada built nearly as many miles of
railway in 1912 as the United States.
And still the cry is for more in the
Similkameen.
Two hundred thousand U.S. farmers
are coming to Canada this year. What a
harvest for the railways carrying them
and their effects.
J. V.Welch, an old time railroad contractor, died at Port Arthur on Feb. r.
During the 12 months ended December
30 last, 1,034 miles of new railroad were
built and put in operation in Alberta
according to official figures given out by
Premier Sifton, who stated that' on Dec.
30 there were 3,020 miles of railroad in
Alberta. These figures show a remarkable increase over those of the past few
years. In 1910 there were only 1,668
miles of railroad in Alberta. In 1911
this had increased to 1,986 and at the end
of 1912 to 3,020. The standing of the
three roads in the province on December
30 last was as follows: Canadian Pacfic,
1,470 miles; Canadian Northern, 912
miles ; Grand Trunk Pacific, 638 miles.
Geo. J. Bury, vice-president of the
C.P.R., has gone a pleasure cruise in the
southern Pacific and will be absent about
two months.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN
STAR
Fa .ruary 7, 1913
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Frank Bailey. M.E., has gone to the
coast where he will have his pamphlet,
descriptive of the resources of the Similkameen, printed. Mr. Bailey is a well-
known hustler and booster and is deserving every encouragement for his laudable
enterprise. There should be more men
animated with his spirit and then hard
times would turn into good time.
L. Marcotte, manager of the Coalmont
hotel, was in town recently on a business
visit.
W. A. McLean, has recovered from
rheumatic indisposition and is at the
front with his construction gang on the
transprovincial trunk road. In spite of
years he is spry as a colt in a clover field,
and bids fair to live a century. His
opinions on public questions are esteemed
and on social-religions matters they are
characterized by breadth and depth of
thought. He is finishing a big bridge
and it the weather prrmits hopes to keep
up roadbuilding till spring, when the
work will be pushed all summer
Ten below zero Wednesday morning is
probably the last cold dip for 1913
Taking the weather average for the
winter, so far, it has been 'just right.'
Rev. Mark Jukes expects to leave the
end of this mouth, when probably Rev J.
Williams will resume his pastorate.
The Oddfellows' annual ball on Feb. 14
is a matter of considerable social interest
and is sure to be well patronized.
An old black crow, the first of the
season observed in town, flew down the
river on a recent cold morning. There
whs a sort of grinding, creaky sound at
flap of his wings, which may have been
caused by the frosty breeze while on his
airy flight.   If possible to communicate
with birds our sporting editor would
advise them to keep away until next
full moon.
The French block, owned by Major
T. E. Naish, has been leased by the
agents McLean & (Russell, to King &
Gibson, who will take possession Feb. 15.
Bill Scruby came in Monday, from
' Parklands,' his country seat seven miles
from town.
Hughie Campbell, veteran of Cariboo
and a hundred mining camps, was in
town from Ashnola on Sunday.
King & Gibson, the well known
lumber, builders' hardware, paint and oil
dealers, will shortly move into more
central premises on Bridge street, where
they will be pleased to serve the public
as in the past.
Bailiff J. B. Wood sold the remnant of
the Elite Cafe in satisfaction of debt
contracted by the fleeing Moores.
Star is in receipt of a long letter from
Wm. Murray, describing the country
round Meadow Lake, Sask., where he is
now visiting his son. The letter is in
fulfilment of a promise to many friends
around Princeton and will appear in due
time.
The Knights of Pythias will institute a
lodge   in    Princeton    soon. Enough
Pythians are already here to begin, and
with the influx of population a strong
lodge is assured.
John Freeman, of the Bank of Commerce, Keremeos, is taking holidays here
and enjoying winter sports, skiing, &c.

WHY THE NEWSPAPER ?
Frontier newspapers have a
strenuous time making 'ends meet'
and many an editor-proprietor
knows that be is simply wasting
his time. It is all right to have
an eye on the future and 'stay
with it,' but what could be more
disheartening than hope deferred
along with a meagre dole of sub-
cribers, and advertising or jobbing
patronage that would make the
proverbial church mouse weep. Of
course it is a mistake to commence
a newspaper in a town of less than
fifteen hundred population. It requires that many people for a field
or base, because, of that number,
there will always be a certain
disgruntled class who send away
for their printing " and , prefer to
subscribe for an outside paper rather
than the one printed at home. No
matter how loyal tbe paper may be
to the town and district and use its
poor ability to forward each indi
vidual's welfare, there is an element
who never cease to decry and
knock effort toward improving
conditions. They will offer a
dozen whining excuses if asked to
subscribe and thus help in the very
necessary encouragement required
to promote general advancement
and prosperity.
Newsgathering in a small town
is one-of the most difficult problems
confronting an editor. How to
avoid being commonplace in publishing trivial affairs, how to clothe
sentences in such garb that no one
can take reasonable offense, how to
courageously ' stand for certain
political, moral and social principles
without losing the confidence and
support of a single reader or
patron, how to lead opinions of a,
mixed, sensitive community to a
common end, and how to make the
paper a clean and creditable medium
for obtaining rights and redress
of grievances. Those are some of
the cares that give the editorial
l.rain exercise. Ask a man for an
. interview which would be of public
interest, and ofteu will he give an
evasive answer or make a promise
he never intends to fulfil, and the
men who never give an item of news
to the reporter are generally first to
criticise, Advertisers pay less on
the country weekly than any other
publication, and although^ they
should furnish copy for their ads.
promptly and regularly to freshen
and brighten the space, they seem
to think that the hard working
compositor should write their copy
as weli. Every newspaper reader
watches the advertisements and the
fresh ad. always brings good results
to the buyer and seller.
The distant reader sizes up a
town by the quality of the reading
matter and ads. in a. newspaper.
To that extent every citizen has a
duty to perform. He may by
friendly converse arid suggestion to
the editor, if not by subscription or
advertisement, help to make the
paper a credit and energizing force
in building up the town. A live
newspaper must represent the
thought and progress of the times,
must be a true reflection of the
constituency it represents. It has
'been truly said that certain newspapers have built up cities. In this
age, publicity backed by truth,
is one of the greatest, if not the
greatest, elements in attracting the
attention of the multitude. No
other means has been so successfully
devised to induce people to assemble
and invest. The newspaper reaches
the nethermost parts of earth and
people follow its trail, take stock in
its articles and are guided by its
reports. A live, healthy newspaper
is one of the best assets a town can
have. To make it such the population must be there, and a
generous support given. Some
newspapers are in advance of the
town and are only marking time
until citizens catch up and catch on.
NOTES  AND  COMMENTS.
The Minister of Justice has the
best public sentiment behind him
in his proposed increase of punishment for 'white slavers.' These
dark spots of humanity must not
be allowed to corrupt society with
their villainous commerce.
A correspondent sends Star a
parody which reflects unfavorably
on a neighboring town. Its publication is respectfully declined,
because no good can result from the
pessimistic spirit in which it is
written.
Attorney-general Bowser is on
the right scent when he makes the
law more stringent regarding the
carrying of firearms. The day is
past when any fellow who was fool
enough could carry a gun and
pull it on an enemy. Arbitration
is the proper way to settle all
disputes and that will help toward
universal peace.
Woman suffrage stands to gain
immeasurably by the adoption of
peaceable instead of warlike tactics.
Unwomanly women, like unmanly
men, burden any cause and bring
it into disrepute. By all means
give women votes, but not at the
price of disorder.

INTEBNATIONAL GEOLOGICAL
CONGRESS.
Within the last twenty or twenty-five
years, the science of geology has developed
in a direction that has brought it into
direct and servicable association with
those classes of commercial enterprise
that are dependent on engineering.
While this is especially true in respect of
mining, it applies almost equally to railroading, municipal engineering, and
other activities of a like nature. The
dependence of mining on geology is
attested, for example, a geologist is now
invariably included on the permanent
staff" of every mining corporation of importance : and the demand in recent
years for the services of capable men to
occupy such positions has been quite out
of proportion to the supply. It is recognized universally, in short, that the debt
of the mining industry to geology is
enormous, and the obligation continues
to increase steadily. This largelv 'explains the circumstance that the invitation
to the International Geological Congress
to hold the next meeting in Canada, was
made, not only at the instance of the
Canadian and Ontario Governments, and
the Royal Society of Canada, but at that
of the Canadian Mining Institute, an
association representative, in a truly
national sense, of the mining industry of
this country. It is believed that thi
meeting will immensely benefit mining
in the Dominion. From th.e educational
and scientific standpoints, much is to be
expected from the interchange of views
on Canadian conditions and problems
by men of international reputations. On
purely commercial grounds, the interest
and attention that will be directed to the
mineral resources aud to the opportunities
for the investment of capital in mining
undertakings in Canada, in themselves
fully justify the extensive preparations
that are being made and the expense
incurred in the anticipation of the event.
Judging from the character of the attendance in the past, almost every civilized
nation will be represented at the Canadian
meeting by men of recognized eminence,
including distinguished government
officials, geologists and mining engineers
in consulting practise, geographers, great
educationalists and writers of text-books.
Thus surely never a better, a more effective opportunity has presented itself of
providing for the widespread disseminations of authorative information on
Canadian resources and potentialities.
Ou these grounds, a general appeal for
sympathetic co-operation is made to all
classes and to the mining community in
particular. The Congress has held many
meetings in other countries.    In all, it

Richard McBride,
has been welcomed with open arms.
That record must be at least maintained.
Meanwhile, before proceeding to recount what progress has been made so far
with the arrangements for the meeting
and for the instruction and entertainment
of the visitors, a word or two should be
said concerning the International Congress itself. In the year 1876 at the
International Exhibition at Philadelphia,
there was dispayed a collection of geo
logical maps and sections of both
America and Enrope. It had the effect
of impressing on geologists who saw it
the advantage of providing opportunities
and means for comparative study ; and in
consequence, in August 1876, at the
annual meeting of the American Association for tne Advancement of Science, at
Buffalo, under the Presidency of Prof.
William. B. Rogers, the project of the
foundation of the Congress was broached
received favorable, and a committee was
appointed to arrange for the first meeting,
held two years later in Paris. It is worthy
of remark that the secretary of the com
mittee in question was that distinguished
chemist and geologist, Dr. T. Sterry
Hunt, who from 1847 to 187a was chemist
and mineralogist to the Geological Survey
of Canada. The objects of the Congress
may be very brief!}' and snccintly summarised in the general statement that by
means of periodical meetings the results
of knowledge acquired in any one
country are given a universal application
and significance. The Congress endeavors to provide, for example, for the
adoption oc uniform systems of mapping,
nomenclature and classification of rocks,
fossils and minerals; and in other
directions broadens the boundaries and
extends the usefulness of geological
science. One achievement, in particular
may be mentioned, is the compilation
of a geological map of Europe, shortly to
be issued ; and it is now proposed to
undertake the preparation of a simiiar
geological map of the world.
