'Under the direction of the contractors, two thousand men are laboring
along the line of the Kettle Valley
construction from Penticton to the
hydraulic summit and there are no
signs of strikes or trouble of anykind.'
Such was the statement officially
given to the Penticton Herald yesterday through the offices of the Kettle
Valley Railway company. The informant further stated that no trouble
whatever was experienced in securing
men, who were coming in looking for
employment in numbers.
Work is to be commenced on the
grade west of Osprey Lake, forty
n.iles west of Penticton, as soon as
the snow is off the ground, when this
liik, which is to connect with Merritt,
will be pushed forward with all possible expedition.
Bids have been received during the
past week for the erection of a round
house and machine shop in the company's yards at Penticton. This contract will be awarded at the beginning
of the week and under the contract
wi-l have to be completed before August 1st.
The round house will contain six
stalls and will call for an expenditure
or approximately $50,000.
The commencement of the ballasting and tracking of the Kettie Valley
section will take place about the first
0. April. Four carloads of steel arrived last week, which is to be utilized
in tie construction of the Trout creek
1:ridge. The false work of this structure will be commenced as soon as
possible.
Track laying and ballasting to Osprey lake will be commenced. about
June first.

E E. Coley. CE , in charge of the
Kettle Valley railway survey partv now
locating the line from Voigt camf> and
Copper mountain to Princeton, is camped
two miles this side of Smelter lake. The
country traversed by the line is difficult
and a choice of two routes is offered.
Location is made to within six miles
from town This line can easily be made
to serve Ashnola and Kennedy mountain,
where tonnage in coal and ore may be
obtained.
The first carload of machinery for construction of the K. V. railway bridge
across the Fraser river arrived at Hope
stalion last week.
Kettle Valley surveyors in Coquihalla

About 2,000 feet of prospecting, in the
shape of shafts, drifts and tunnels
have been made in proving the continuity of No. 3 coal seam. Thomas L.
3rophy, M. E., who recently examined
the property, says: The location is
ideal, giving shipping facilities over
two railways, and being within short
distances of three large smelters, in
addition to many prosperous and
growing towns, where there are ready
markets. The coal is a high grade
bituminous and produces the finest
quality of steelgray coke. It is an excellent steam coal and nothing better
could be found for domestic purposes,
as it is clean and free from noxious
odors. A railway spur will be built
to the portal of the tunnel.

A man walking down the main street
of Welldo last week noticed what he
thinks was a Zippelin airship from Ger
many, such as recently landed in France
It may have been the intention to drop
a bomb on the bank building there, as
this building is an increasing attraction
for tourists and has been burglarized until there is nothing left but the trees a
man named French built it with in the
boom days. The war craze has reachtd
the Similkameen and Zips are in the air.
It is reported that knighthoods are to

WANTS BOUNTY RAISED.
Editor Star—Sir: During recent visits to neighbors on Onemile creek I
noticed with horror the ravages made
by coyotes on yearling deer. I saw
four killed within a few days, two on
Blue lake, one on O. Bargeson's ranch
and the other on J. Burns' ranch. The
bounty given by the government, $3.00,
is hardly worth one's while to endure
the hardship of mountain climbing
and risk to hunt these miserable and
destructive coyotes. All the settlers
hope to see the bounty raised to eight
or ten dollars a head, thus protecting
deer and other game as well as chickens, etc., of the rancher. I would also
suggest that a bounty be put on the
notorious blue hawk, a very destructive bird and nuisance to farmers.
Yours truly,
W. m SCRUBY.

company paid on account of new properties and in exploration and development $229,489.
'The company has also under option
numerous properties upon which payments are to be made during the current fiscal year, and the board deems
it best to use available net revenue for
that purpose, which is thought essential for the purpose of supplementing
ore reserves, and, therefore, considers
it expedient to defer distribution to

CHIROPRACTICN EURO-
PATflY IDEA
Chiropractic-Neuropathy, unlike other
methods of healing, does not treat s-ymp-
toms or manifestations of disease, but removes the cause, permitting nature to
exercise her powers and functions unimpaired. As a Science C-N. is based
and founded upon a correct understanding of the nervous system.
It is an Anatomical fact that the brain,
tbe great dynamo of the human anatomy,
controls all functions of the body. The
spinal cord is a great bundle of nerves
that passes downward from the brain
through a canal in the spine which is
made up of twenty-four small movable
segments called vertebrae.
There are small openings called foramina between all of these twenty-four vertebrae. Through these foramina pass
branches of the great spinal cord. These
branches are spinal nerves. They communicate indirectly with the sympathetic
system, thus connecting with the entire
nervous system by this arrangement and
connects all tissues and organs of the
body, showing that if any of these nerves
[supplying any tissue or organ] being impaired would in turn cause malnutrition,
[disease].
Thus. C.-N. maintains that were the
nerves unrestricted all organsof the body
would fnnctionate properly and all tissue
would be in a [healthy state].
To the Skeptics:
Be fair to yourself and broad minded
enough to investigate,for in these modern
days one cannot doubt anything, at least,
when it has a good foundation.
If you should become interested ask or
write for literature, and f will gladly sup
ply you with the same.
A C-N. successfully treats Constipation.
Costiveness, Deafness, Female Troubles

Under the head of new business Mr.
C. R. Briggs the secretary and treasurer gave an address pertinent to the
general condition of the company's
affairs and pointed out the future
prospects for the cement industry in
British Columbia. Part of his remarks
were as follows:
'All the buildings are now completed, whih are necessary to operate the
plant. This includes the main factory building 60x434 feet, the engine
and boiler house 60x118, the coal
drying house 35x65, and the stock
house 60x200. All the above buildings are constructed of solid masonry
walls and trussed roofs covered with
galvanized iron. The office and laboratory building, which is partly
frame, is also finished and is now occupied. In addition to the above there
are a number of frame buildings, consisting of a frame dwelling, a cook
house, bunk house, and a large barn,
which can be used as a garage. It is
planned to build a separate blacksmith and machine shop, as soon as
the capacity of the plant is enlarged,
but for the present the unoccupied
space in the boiler house will be used
for this purpose. There is now installed in the boiler house, four 150
H. P. boilers and there is additional
space for jthree more of like capacity.
There is hdw installed'in the engine
house a 650 H. P. cross compound
condensing, Corliss engine. There is
also 'space for another engine of like
capacity, or a steam turbine having
1,000 H. P. capacity. Some three or
f-hr miles north of our plant, some
Vancouver parties have taken water
rights on Fivemile creek and they
claim they will be able to develop
something like 2,500 H. P., and will
be willing to sell us electric power af
a very reasonable figure as soon as
they develop the same. In.the main
factory building there. is „ room, far
three, 8x125 foot rotary kilns,' for' the
present we are installing only one.
With the first kiln installed there will
be sufficient drying, grinding and'
conveying machinery to operate two
kilns. When all three rotary kilnjs
are finally iistall_d,"w6J will hav%"a
maximum daily capacity of about
2,100 barrels of cement. At an additional cost of about $40,000.00 we will

B.C. PORTLAND CEMENT CO-
The annual report of the B. C.
Portland Cement Co., East Princeton, now published in this paper, is
the history of a large enterprise and
will make interesting reading for
ail who would like to see the development of this district hastened
along. A vein of optimism runs
through the whole report—optimism founded on realities and the
hard facts demonstrated by results.
The directors and officials of the
company are practical business men
who, having confidence in the present value and future worth of their
property, inspire stockholders with
similar faith and hopes. Difficulties and the usual delays inseparable from large undertakings have
been met and overcome. The
wheels of this industry will in
about a month be turning out a
first class quality of cement. Numerous tests have proven the limitless supply of raw material to be of
superior quality and the plant for
its production and manufacture is
of the latest improved pattern and
design.
To have an industry of this kind
in the Similkameen district will be
of undoubted benefit to all residents.
A.t the very door of the elder town
of Princeton it cannot fail to stimulate commercial conditions and en-
1 irge the sphere of trade. With
the present demand and market in
sight for cement an unfluctuating
payroll is expected. East Princeton will grow from the impetus of
industrial enterprise a.nd whatever
benefits it will benefit the whole of
Princeton district and the province.
The head office of the B.C. Portland Cement Co. will be in East
Princeton and the homes of work-
ingroen and families will constitute
population and wealth sufficient to
warrant municipal organization*
B^. welding the old and new towns
into one corporate whole the path
of progress will be simplified and
harmony promoted. Considerable
Princeton capital is invested in
cem.ent bonds by citizens who want
industries established and the prosperity of the community accelerated. The B. C. Portland Cement
Co. is, therefore, deserving the
goodwill    and    encouragement   of
every resident of the district.
To finance a large undertaking
in lace of a depressed money market
has tested the ability and resourcefulness of the directors and officials of the company. Financial
obligations have been met, stock is
at par, and investors are satisfied.
Delays were encountered and dividend day postponed, thereby. But
no one thinks of selling histionds
in view of the bright future for
cement. The plant will soon be in
operation and a permanent payroll
established, to that extent, at least,
the B.C. Portland Cement Co. will
be a public\ benefactor and a most
welcome institution in the progress
of the country.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Every town making any pretensions to modern life and activity has
some soit of organization through
which citizens may unitedly voice
their public requirements and take
such steps as may be deemed wise
for their protection and advancement. Before a town can be incorporated it has no guiding head nor
executive body. Often critical
problems have to be met and solved
in some haphazard way by those
self-constituted authorities who always obtrude iu a manner that results in dissatisfaction. With a
Progress club, Commercial club or
Business Men's association there
would be opportunity for discussion
and decision. The interchange of
opinions and the social intercourse
cultivated by the assemblage of citizens monthly or bi-monthly would
be of great value in shaping the
destiny of the town. Collective
effort to promote the interests of a
community is always better than
isolated endeavor and vastly better
than none at all.    ' Get together.'
When the military ahd naval
craze has subsided in Europe the
great powers might turn their at
tention and money as well toward
the extermination of evil spirits.
These spirits, or devils, have so
multiplied in the old countries that
unless something be done with them
soon the whole of Europe will be
hell, if it is net already so. These
spirits are no bigger than a flitting
thought at first, which, if unchecked, expand into villainous deeds.
The rulers and governments might
.change their own. thoughts into
peaceful channels and then- divert
the people's similarly. Thought is
the greatest dynamo for good or
evil, peace or war, in the world and
it'ean be regulated to suit the will..
It is a great trial of patience and
endurance to wait on the long promised, long talked of railway connection with the coast. Both the
C.P.R. and Great Northern are so
slow that the snail is as chain lightning compared with them.

EAST    PRINCETON
The manufacture of cement will begin in a few
weeks. A permanent payroll and a growing town
with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two
railways will serve transportation.

be able to double the capacity of our
plant and this will require the addition of one rotary kiln and possibly
one or two grinding machines. The
coal drying and grinding house Is
now finished and equipped with sufficient machinery to supply pulverized
coal for three rotary kilns. The
stock house is divided into eleven
compartments having a capacity of
5,000 barrels each. There is sufficient
vacant ground adjoining the stock
house so that this building can be
easily extended to give us a total storage capacity of 100,000 barrels. . We
also have ample vacant ground to
store large quantities of cement clinker, so that the plant need never be
shut down for lack of storage capacity.
machinery in Place.
About four-fifths of the machinery
is now at the plant and is nearly all
in place and ready to begin operation.
The rotary kiln and electric generator should arrive any day. The balance of the machinery consisting of
the motors, the rock pulverizer, clay
disintegrator and gyratory crusher
are all ready to ship from the factory.
It will take about four car loads of
kiln blocks to line the rotary kiln,
and these are now being shipped from
the factory at Clayburn, B. C. W,e are
now placing the order for electric
supplies and belting, but as^these can
be furnished locally it will not be necessary to ship these materials until
the plant is ready to operate. During
the past summer, we burnt in our own
kilns, 250,000 common brick of good
quality from the clay on our property.
This brick has been used for boiler
and drying machinery settings. Including the cost of the b^Ick machine,
we will be able to save about $10.00
per thousand on the cost of these
brick, as they would have to be
shipped in from outside points. It is
also interesting to note that we burnt
an excellent grade of lime from the
limestone which we are using in the
manufacture of our cement. The lime
was used for the foundations and
walls of all the buildings. ■ The con
crete piers and foundations for the
machinery are all laid. We were
obliged to ship- in cement at a cost of
about $5.50' per barrel to make our
concrete. We have used more than
five cars of cement
The limestone quarry is how being
rapidly opened up and will soon be in
shape, to supply us with sufficient
rock to meet the needs of the first
kiln, which will amount to four hundred cubic yards per day.
After stripping the six-hundred
foot face of our lime deposit of all
trees, dirt and loose rock, we made
use of a large part of the lime rock
'n erecting the walls of our buildings,
which was taken from the new quarry.
It will be necessary to waste a large
amount of first class rock before the
quarry will be sufficiently opened up
to furnish us vthe necessary daily
quantity of rock for our kiln and also
to make it safe for workmen. The
shale and clay deposit can be worked
with much less expense and trouble
as the clay can be taken from the surface of the deposit as well as from the
tunnel. The United Empire Company
have now carried on development in
their coal tunnel sufficiently to furnish us with all the coal that we will
demand for our use. It will take from
60 to 75 tons of coal per day to fire
the steam boilers and the rotary kiln.
Two Railways Can Use Spur.
The spur and bridge which connects our plant and the coal mine of
the United Empire Co. with the Great
Northern Railway is now completed
and all our machinery and supplies
are being brought to the doors of our
buildings. Since the completion of
the spur, the coal mine is now being
operated and a good-grade of domestic coal is being shipped" to Spokane
and other points on the Great Northern Railway. Two additional sidings,
one to the stock house, and one to the
boiler and coal drying house has also
been built. The Kettle Valley Railway survey crosses our spur in two
places  and when .this  road- is  built,

The charter of the company was
received on the ninth of September,
1910, and final organization completed
the latter part of the" same month.
The officers first selected were practically the same as those now in control. All are well known and successful business men of Vancouver.
The 80 acres of land which ^contain
the limestone and shale deposit was
bought from Mr. John George for 1,850
shares of the company's stock, no cash
being paid him.
Coal from United Empire.
Although there is a deposit of coal
on the company's own land they are
buying their coal from the United Empire Company whose deposits on the
adjoining property have been opened.
The contract price with this company
for coal needed in the manufacture of
cement is $1.25 per ton for slack coal
and $2.00 per ton for mine run. It is
a lignite unusually high in carbon and
volatile matter and consequently
makes a fine coal for the calcination
or burning of the raw materials necessary for the manufacture of cement.
, The limestone and shale are of first
jjquality and have been tested out in
jteeveral laboratories and at the works
lof the Rocky Moutain Cement Co. at
(Blairmore, Alberta. The Great Northern Ry. Co. went so far as to take the
raw materials from the property and
have a thorough test made in St. Paul
.without the cement company's knowledge before they completed tjie spur
land their chemist found them entirely
satisfactory, for the manufacture of
the highest grade of Portland cement.
There is sufficient material on the
property to keep the works running
for hundreds of years with a capacity
of 2,000 barrels per day.
In the fall of 1910, Mr. John George
who was selected managBr^-tbe-eefn-
pany, was authorized to sell the bonds
and stock of the company. Outside
of this no fiscal agent has been appointed by the company to dispose of
their -bonds and stock. Quite a number of bonds have been disposed of by
the secretary, and by Mr. H. M. Budd,
a brother of one of the directors of
the company, and also by some of
the directors. In consequence of this
they find that their organization expenses have been very low as compared with other companies of a similar character. They have had to give
no large amount of stock in addition
to commissions to place their bonds
on the market. Since October 1910,
$315,000.00 of their Bonds have been
fully subscribed, which leaves them in
the neighborhood of $20,000.00 to place

They do not expect to sell more than
$3.5,000.00 of the $400,000.00 worth of
bonds which they are permitted to issue according to their bylaws. However, if conditions arise over which
they have no control, they might possibly place $350,000.00 of the present
issue. With those $335,000.00 of bonds
issued according to the nresent basis
of sale, they would not issife more
than 1,700 shares of stock. This
amount added to the amount of shares
given for the property would make a
total issue of not more than 3,600
shares of the 5,000 shares for which
they are capitalized. These figures
are mentioned to call attention to the
fact that the profits accruing to the
purchasers of the bonds and stock
would enable handsome dividends to
be declared.
