the location of its line in Coquihalla pass
A counter application was placed by the

surveyed lines in the pass and owing to
the danger of snowslides it is doubtful if
there is room for two loads. Each company claims priority of location and

report and if possible a decision would be
rendered permitting both companies to
use the pass.

Eight Elected by Acclamation
Nomination Day Portends
Sweeping Victory,
Similkameen   Honors  Member with
Another Term—Mr. Shatford
Extends Thanks.
Last Thursday, nomination day. Will
be memorable in the annals of election
campaigns in this province. Eight Conservative members of the recently dissolved legislature were returned without
opposition, two of whom were ministers
in the McBride government. With such
a lead it is almost foregone that the government will be returned on the 28th
instant with as great majority as in the
last house.
■   Following are those returned by accla
mation:    T. \y_ {^hprford,  Similkameen;
I*. W. SHATFORD
Member nine years for Similkameen.
S. A. Cawley, Chilliwack; J. G. Wood,
Alberni; Neil F. McKay, Kaslo; Hon. H.
E. Young, Atlin; Hon. Thomas Taylor,
Revelstoke; T. D. Caven, Cranbrook, and
E. Miller, Grand Forks.
No opposition to the return of the
.member for Similkameen developed op
nomination day. From the first intimation of the election it was felt that in view
of his splendid services no opponent
could possibly hope to be returned,
therefore the election of Mr. Shatford
by acclamation was not a surprise but the
legitimate outcome of faithful representation of this constituency. Mr. Shatford
sends the following message of thanks to
the voters of the Similkameen :
' Vancouver, B.C., March 15, 1912.
' Editor Star, Priuceton : Permit me
through the medium of your journal to
extend to the electors of the Similkameen
district, my warmest thanks and appreciation for their unanimous endorsement of
my election to parliament. My earnest
endeavor will always be to merit this
confidence and responsibility by doing
everything possible for the development
of the Similkameen and the well being of
my constituents
'(Signed) 'L. W. Shatford.'
CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION
The following report of the meeting of
the  Princeton   Conservative   association
was received too late for publication last .
week :
'A meeting of the association was held
in the court house on thi evening of the
nth inst. There.wasJa large turnout and
many new names were added to the
membership roll.
' C. E. Thomas was re elected president
and W C. McDougall secretary for the
coming year. P. Russell and G. Wardle
were elected vice president and second
vice-president respectlvel .•.
' Mr. Coulthard, who had attended the
district convention held at Keremeos on
the 8th inst. for the purpose of nominating L. W. Shatford as the conservative
candidate at the forthcoming election,
gave a most interesting account of the
proceedings at the convention, stating
that the nomination given Mr. Shatford
was enthusiastically unanimous and that
his return as member for the district was
assured. Mr Coulthard was given a most
hearty vote of thanks for the very lucid
report which he gave the meeting.
' The secretary, at the suggestion of the
president, gave an account of what had
already been done by the Princeton Con
servative association, in the way of placing tbe requirements of Princeton and
adjacent sections before Mr. Shatford
and the legislature. App opriations for
roads, streets and bridges and new provincial buildings for Princeton had been
asked for and satisfactory replies received,
followed later by the large appropriations
for the district authorized by the legislature.
' Application had also been made to
the federal authorities, through Hon.
Mr Burrell, urging the establishment of
a port of entry at Princeton, adequate
federal buildings and improved telephone
and postal facilities. A better aud more
direct mail route to the coast via Coal-
mont and Meruit had also been urged.
These matters were now being taken
under consideration by the federal
authorities with excellent prospects of
the recommendations made by this association being carried into effect.  .
' The necessity for maintaining a strong
Conservative organization in Princeton
in order to effectually continue the work
already commenced by the association
was referred to and endorsed by those
present.

HONOK TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.
The election of L. W. Shatford
by acclamation is a deserved com
pliment to one who has given much
earnest attention to the welfare of
his constituents. Similkameen is
fortunate in having a representative
whose conscientious services have
resulted in public works which conduce to the rapid development of
the whole-district. With the prospect now of continued progress ;tnd
the early completion of railways to
the coast there is incentive to
capital coming this way. This
province is now enjoying expansion
in every industry and the resultant
prosperity and contentment of the
people is due almost wholly to the
railway policy which Mr. Shatford
fkvors. Star merely voices the
sentiment of more than nine tenths
of the electors of the Similkameen
when it expresses the hope that Mr.
Shatford may be long spared to
represent the district and support
the progressive government now
shaping the great future of •**.he
province.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Countess of Warwick has
arrived in New York on a lecture
tour. She announces that she is a
Socialist. Well, well! Extremes
meet sometimes. How odd that
Socialists and blue-blooded aristocrats should hob-nob. It was ever
thusj^
A week from tomorrow and the
ty&ttle will bej^pver. Premier McBride is safe in the saddle even
although his enemies predict a fall.
On, Richard, to further achievements and thy country's good*
 wW.
ThM some foesnetiworthy of his
s'eel should occupy a few opposition
seats is no doubt/the wish of Premier McBride. Sh. strong, healthy
opposition is good in a legislature,
and if not ing more it adds interest
to the debates.
It is current opinion that Britain
is on the verge of a great revolution.    The coal strike  has  aroused
slumbering thought of pubiic ownership, not only of the coal mines,
but of other public utilities.
AMERICAN  MILLS IN  CANADA
The United Flour Mills of Minneapolis
are branching out into Canada, having
bought the'plant of the Saskatoon Milling company at Saskatoon. This is the
firstcibneern that the company has taken
over on this side of the line and Saskatoon
will be the Canadian headquarters. It is
also proposed to establish a plant in
Regina.
OOKS" BUYING LAND.
\j0w contingent of Russians arrived
j*0me Grand Forks valley this week from
Saskatchewan and have purchased four
ten-acre tracts of unimproved Jand from
H. F. Broad and others adjoining his
ranch east of the city. For three of the
tracts they paid at the rate of $100 per
acre, while for the fourth they paid $125
per acre, the total transaction amounting
to #425°-
' On motion the president appointed a
program committee to select speakers
and otherwise arrange programs at future
meetings of this association. The president, vice-presidents, secretary, and
Messrs. Carmichael, Waterman, Gibson,
Coulthard, Schisler, Swanson, H. H.
Thomas, McFadden and W. H Thomas
were appointed members of this committee..:
'A  vote  of thanks  was  tendered  the
secretary for his services, after which the
association adjoulned   to meet again  in.,
the court house on  Friday, 22nd  inst. at'
8 p. m.
Isaac Eastwood, Merritt's first mayor,
was married in Vancouver last wee_~'lo
Miss C. Dowiing.
. When a duck lays an egg she just
waddles off as if nothing had happened.
When a hen lays an egg there's some
noise about it. The hen advertises.
Hence the demand for the hen's egg in
stead of the duck's.
CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION.
From 1 st Page.
" 'Mr. Broomfield brought up the matter
of a semi monthly pay dav and its establishment by law, but as it appeared -hat
t le 11 a'.ter had already been dealt with
by the legislature no action was taken."
THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
The person who thinks he cannot
win has already lost.
Pharisees are as plentiful now a1. 2000
years ago if" one ma}'judge by the holier-
than-thou attitude of spuiious critics and
fault finders.
'A city set upon a hill cannot be hid.'
Judicious advertising is equivalent to the
town or city set upon a hill. Is Princeton
on a hill or a flat?
When wife will gad, husband is sad.
Cowards, like wolves attack in packs,
singly thev slink away from an opponent.
The person most to be suspected and
watched is the one who is ever*suspicious
of wrong doing in others.
The happiest and most productive hen
does the most scratching—idleness and
misery go hand in hand.
The   false   accuser   never   proves   his
assertion of graft or guilt of any kind, he
hides behind insinuation and damnable
slander.

-Record Track Laying.—It is to the
American engineer aud contractor that
the world is indebted for its first les&ns
in rapid construction of railroads and
particularly in rapid track laying. The
lesson as taught on our western prairies
has led to systematic methods ol railroad
ctjnsl^uction, particularly with a view to
time and labor saving, in other countries
where extensive lines are being built
Thus, we notice that recently a record
was 6% miles of main track and 1200
feet of siding laid with rails in one day.
The work was done under British engineers on the Baro Kana railway in no:th-
ern Nigeria.
Concrete Telegraph Poles in New
Zealand.—Reinforced concrete telegraph poles are being used by the Postal
Telegragh department of New Zealand
on ihe line between Auckland and Hamilton. Over 1200 of the poles have been
set up. They measure 26 feet high and
taper from 6x8 inches at the base to 6x6
inches at the top. The poles are claimed
to be only slightly heavier than the
wooden poles they have replaced.
Electric Ovens in Vienna —Electric ovens for bread baking are beginning
to make their appearance in-some of the
large cities of Europe, and the central
electric stations are promoting their use.
The Vienna electric plant is making arrangements with the bakers' syndicate to
have electiic ovens adopted widely
throughout the c.itv, and it offers to
supply the current for this use at special
reduced rates. As the bakers' ovens run
all night this provides an outlet for current during the hours when the load is
normally low. Th_re will soon be a trial
oven put in operation in order to test the
method.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
FIRE DAMP ALARM FOR MINES.
For totne time past efforts have been
made in Great Britain toward the evolution of some simple device whereby the
miner might be provided with a means of
detecting instantaneously the presence of
fire damp in a mine. Some time ago an
ingenious appliance was evolved for ful
filling this requirement, but the information thus gathered was communicated
only to certain points in the mine, where
warning was given audibly and visually.
J. B. Atkinson, the government inspector
of mines fcr the Newcastle district of
Great Britain, was impressed with the
serviceability of this apparatns and suggested that it should be modified if pos
sible toward a portable form, which every
miner might be able to carry about with
him. The suggestion was adopted, and
in the course of a recent meeting of the
North of England Institute of Mining
and Mechanical Engineers, a device designed upon these lines was demonstrated and described
This latest apparatus is a combination
of an efficient warning device and the
miner's electric lamp. The apparatus is
made in different forms to suit vatious
requirements, but in every instance the
fundamental principle is the same.

Bias Corsets
The Bias princ iple of construction is quite different
to the average, being boned
on the bias instead of straight
up and down like other
corsets. It is this difference
iu the way they are made,
which makes them so strikingly easy and comfortable,
and those who have never
worn a Bias Filled have yet
to know what the right
corset will do for them. Its
bouings and clasps will not
rust, and the fabric will not
tear with the hardest and
most constant use. Every
yard of material is accurately tested for strength, and
everything about them is
guaranteed by the  makers.

The Town ol opportunity
The rails have been  laid  into  the town and Coalmont is now the new
terminus,   the  base  of operations for  the next  forty miles of railway

between   350  and  400  men : This  means population, which naturally
means good business.
IF YOU ARE WISE YOU will  invest in a little Coalmont real estate
now while the choice is still good.
Don't let this opportnnily slip  along  with   the  others   which have go1
past you.    Write for our circular and  price list ; a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

According to the laws of industrial progress and the experience of founders of western towns,
there must be a tangible, genuine basis on which to establish the future city. No amount of
coaxing can bring blood out of a stone, nor can the greatest scientist extract sunbeams from a
cucumber. Every man makes his own destiny==his own fortune==nothing comes by so=called
good luck.   The doorfis wide ajar for all who have pluck and a little capital.    Investigate Now!
