PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1909.
$2 a Year in Advance
CAMPAIGN NOW ON
Appeal to the Country on Railway   Policy — Two
Ministers Resign.
' Honest John' Differs Little from the
Premier on Railway Policy
Just Announced.
The B C. legislature has been dissolved
and elections are fixed for the 25th prox.
The announcement follows an agreement
between the Canadian Northern Railway Co. and the government. The Co.
agrees to build 600 miles from Yellow-
head Pass to the coast and across Vancouver Island. The government will
guarantee the interest on $35 000 per
mile at 4 per cent. An agreement has
also been made with the Kettle Valley
Railway Co. (C.P.R.) for the construction
of a line from Midway to Nicola, already
surveyed. This line will reach Princeton
by a branch up One-Mile about six miles
in length. This line has a bonus frrom
the Dominion and Mr. McBride proposes
to bonus it at the rate of $5000 per mile,
or a total Dominion and Provincial bonus
of $9000 per mile.
The guarantee of bonds does not entail
*any expenditure and is simply carrying
out a policy adopted by the Liberal provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
On 'general principles' Star objects to
bonussing and in it finds the only reprehensible feature of Mr. McBride's otherwise progressive railway policy.
In John Oliver's manifesto just issued
he makes the same mistake as the Premier
in promising a railway bonus.
Tbe resignation of Ministers Tatlow
and Fulton has every appearance of
pique since they have offered no good
reason for desertion at an awkward time.
Viewed from a Liberal standpoint the
Premier loses nothing, but rather gains,
by their secession.
The first gun of the campaign will be
fired at Kamloops on Nov. 1 by the premier and attorney-general.
The Socialists are active on Vancouver
Island.
The McBride government will be returned again.
EX
LADIES' AID 'MAKE GOOD' ON
THANKSGIVING DAY.
The Thanksgiving Dinnergiven by the
Ladies' Aid in the Britton block Monday
evening was an unqualified success. Receipts amounting to $56.40 could'not fail
to gratify the Ladies, wh\o are/tleserving
of the many praises accorde^T them from
all sources. The dining room was tastefully arrayed and the tables fairly creaked
with the good things provided. Nothing was omitted to make the guests
happy and while the inner man was refreshed with many toothsome things the
soul was regaled with sweet strains of
music. After dinner an impromptu concert was held the contributors being Mr.
and Mrs. Waterman, Mrs. Marlow, Dr.
Lazier, Mr. Evans and Rev. Mr. Conn,
the enjoyable occasion closing with 'God
Save the King.' Rev. Mr. Conn introduced the various numbers in his happiest vein, at the conclusion expressing
many thanks on behalf of the Ladies to
those who had contributed in any manner to the evening's success and especially remembering Mr. Britton for his
generously placing the building at their
disposal for the dinner and conceit.
SIMILKAMEEN LUMBER CO'S
NEW MILL.
A visit to the Similkameen Lumber
Co's mill -must convince anyone of the
great amoirnt of preparatory labor necessary for the construction and operation of
a sawmill ahead of railway transportation. The hauling of heavy machinery
and material, clearing ground, construction of cribbing and anchor piers, the
building of the mill proper, bunkhouse,
stable, office, boarding house and dwelling, all representing a large outlay of
capital and labor before any cutting of
lumber could be made.
The mill site could not have been better chosen. With the railway on the
one han4-^and the river on the other
there is every requisite for the manufacture and shipping of lumber. A natural
basin affords storage for logs', from there
the log is hauled up a sUtle into the mill
and manufactured lntp''the various kinds
of lumber required for local trade. The
mill has a cutting capacity of about
20,000 feet per day, besides other machinery for finishing the sawn material.
Manager .Waddell is a practical mill
man and employs the best skilled labor to
be found, resulting in a fine product.
All kinds of lumber are kept on hand
at the mill and at the yard in town. The
mill requires trom 16 to~2o men" to operate and as necessary this force will be increased and the premises enlarged. The
local market is expected to extend with
the increased population and everything
considered there are prosperous days
ahead for this industry.

THE SUN KISSED VALLEY OP
SIMILKAMEEM.
A folder, full of information about the
horticultural and agricultural resources
of the Similkameen, particularly of Keremeos, has been issued by the board of
trade there. Everybody should know,
with this latest additiou to literature, that
the Similkameen affords exceptional inducements for fruitgrowing aud kindred'
industries. Here one may enjoy the
happy and simple life under almost clouds
less skies by acquiring a few acres of"
land. The demand for fruit will always
te large from the mining camps, which
assures a home market.
POLITICAL HEELER DID NOT
FILL BILL.
Canadian trade commissioner Harris,
formerly on the Vernon Okanagan staff,
and recently representing Canada in
Tapan, has been recalled for indiscreet
sayings and doings.' As for his doings
Mr. Harris had an inveterate habit of
chewing gum which the Mikado could
not endure, and regarding his sayings—
Well, those who met him as advance
agent and sack carrier for the late politically deceased member for Yale-Cariboo
know that his knowledge of men and
things was decidedly limited. He is one
of the many painful instances of a heeler
receiving appointment without the slightest qualification for the position. Is it
not time to stop this iniquity both in
Dominion and Provincial politics?
^(^jT Nathan has cleared five acres of land
n Dr. Westwood's fruit farm on the-
sesond bench above the river. It is
beautifully situated and with the aid of
water to be rammed from the river there
will be big crops from the excellent soil-
The young orchard on the river flat is
looking fine and 'Nathan's spuds' grown
among the young trees have acquired a
local fame for edibility.
Jos. Manly returned on Saturday from
Princeton. While there he secured the
agency for the Princeton coal and is.
making arrangements to place it on the
market at Grand Forks.—Gazette.
The key to a noble life is to see clearly
and then to act in absolute obedience to-
the highest vision.

THE ELECTIONS.
Thursday, Nov. n and Thursday
Nov.   25 ; these are the   dates to
which  all  eyes  will  be turned as
nomination  day   and   polling day
respectively in the provincial elections officially  announced from the
^capital.    The  last  provincial elections were held on  February 2nd,
1-907, so that the natural life of tbe
House recently dissolved by proclamation had not expired.    In bringing  the  eleciions  on  so soon it is
understood  that   Premier McBride
intends to  launch a railway policy
involving subsidies, and  other assistance to various lines of railroad
throughout   the   province.     This
policy will be made known and dis-
-cussed  in   detail in   the political
campaign   now   begun.     On  this
.policy  and  local option in its application to the sale of liquor hang
the  main  issues  of the campaign.
No other questions are of sufficient
importance or   urgency   in themselves  to justify an appeal  to the
people at this unusual time. .
While Star has opposed the present government in the past, adhering  to  and  still  believing  iu  tbe
principles  of L/iberalism, it waives
party for  what  it considers is best
for  the people  and  relies  on  the
ability and  integrity  of those now
at  tbe  helm for  a continuance of
good government.    Mere fault finding    and   mere   criticism  are  not
-sufficient to dethrone a government,
for  who  or  what ministry   could
stand if  stern judgment   without
discretion prevailed.    Then, measuring up the parties as they stood
in the House  by the standards of
profiiciency and administrative tact
it must  be admitted that  the Liberals verged upon impotency.    The
Opposition leader^ Mr. Macdonald,
was and  is  an eminently respectable man,   an  ornament to his profession and an excellent citizen.   He
lacked in zeal and attack, two qualities  which   his  successor   may be
said to  have in plethoric quantity.
There are, however, more exeellent
reasons for  supporting  the present
representative of the Sitoilkameen,
thereby  temporarily,   at  least, endorsing the government.
The Civil Service of this province
had fallen into a miry rut, another
name for an elongated grave, and
complaints were numeious and bitter. A sort of bureaucracy existed
in which officials acted as though
they held position by rights divine.
Delays in  departmental work often
caused loss of time and money to
those having business with the government.    Civil Service reform has
begun  by  grading  employees and
fixing standards of merit and promotion ; old servants are being superannuated and   the  service improved  in many, ways.    Mr. Shatford has now represented the Similkameen   two   terms,   in  both of
which the Star strenuously opposed
him.    He  has given general satisfaction, fulfilling his pledges in this
section and conducting public business in a manner creditable'to himself and his   party.     Star, has no
axe  to  grind  or  favor to ask.    It
simply  gives  honor  and  credit to
whom honor and credit is due.
For the aforementioned reasons
and others to be later given this
paper will encourage the return of
Mr. Shatford by acclamation.
After six years of clean representation no greater tribute could be
given to real merit than his unopposed return.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
October 27, 1909
THE PHILOSOPHY OP LIFE.
Wise Solomon advised the sluggard to
g) 10 the ant and consider her ways.
.Bat there are-sluggards in B.C."who continually go to rich uncles and consider
his means.
To have the reputation of being a
knocker is to lose all influence and respect of acquaintances.
Persons with least ability like to be
in the limelight and want to 'run' things
whereas the able and capable are never
pushful of themselves.
■ Knockers   are  warts on  the hands of
progress—unsightly and useless.
The person  who speaks disparagingly
of his town or its private institutions is [
sowing the seeds of his own hurt, if not
ruin.
PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS ACT.
Take notice that I have received objections in
writing: to the undermentioned person's names
retained on the $|ft of Voters for the Similkameen

MINES AND MINING.
Platinum is likely to be raised in price
according to the measures which the Russian producers are taking. About 95 per
cent of all the platinum in the world
comes from the mines at Nijni Taguil.
The mines are operated by English,
French, German and Russian companies,
but there is now a movement in Bussia
to keep the platinum production in the
hands of the Russians solely. The price
of platinum is sure to rise. Its present
quotation is $26 per ounee.
The Cammell, Eaird Co. of Birkenhead,
Sheffield and Coventry, England, shipbuilders and miners, are about to establish in B C.
The Harrison Hot Springs are in danger. Valuable mineral has been found
around the springs, claims have been
staked and now a desperate legal struggle threatens between the holders of the
mineral rights aud the owners of the
springs. J. O. Coulthard, of Princeton,
is interested in the mineral locations.
1800 tons per day is the output of the
Coal Creek coal mines in .1.-. c ".«.
The Granby smelter is now treating
4000 tons of ore per day and still increasing its capacity.
