S&NNEXATION BUGABOO.
Hollowness of Flag Waving and the
Truth. About the Silly Question.
- Conservative speakers and press are
endeavoring to obscure the real benefits
of reciprocity with the greatest bugbear
that was ever foisted upon the public,
which they term annexation, loss of political identity, absorption, &c. There
was no cry of annexation when the great
Tory leader, Sir John A. JMacdonald, proposed reciprocity with the .United States
but the moment a Liberal prime minister
advocates reciprocity he is denounced as
annexationist, traitor and what not Such
opposition to reciprocity is silly and opposed to the best interests of the people
of the Similkameen aud all Canada.
It may be well to quote President
Taft's own words on the subject of 'annexation. They ate open to no misconstruction or misrepresentation. Bven R.
L. Borden cannot- distort them.. Mr.
Taft, in his address to the American
Newspaper Publishers' Association at
New York on April 27tl&last made use of
the following words :
'w'-HJis amusing, and I am not sure that
it has not some, elements of consolation
in it, to find that a_T the buncombe and
all the exaggeration and misrepresentation in politics and all the political
ghosts are not confined to our" own
country aridjfchat there has entered into
the discussion iii C__ada, and as a reason
lor defeating the adoption of this contractby the Canadian Parliamen, a fear
that we desire to annex the Dominion;
and _ihe 'dreams of Americans with irresponsible, imagination?, who like to
talk of the starry flag's floating from
Panama to-the pole, are exhibited by the
opponents of the Canadian pact in Canada as the declaration of a real policy by
this country aud as an announcement of
our purpose to pushpotmcal control over
our neighbor of the north.
'Why should we not have a closer
union with Canada? Think of the absurdity of separating Manitoba and
Minneapolis by so great a distance as
Manitoba and Liverpool when certainly
Providence intended that their separation
socially and commercially, should only
be that of their geographical J distance.
Canadians have furnished us a large number of our best citizens. We are giving
thetU a large number of the pick of our
young farmers. Let us open the gateways
between us.
'The talk of annexation is all bosh.
Every one who knows anything about it
realizes that it is bosh. To make the
possibility of the annexation of Canada
to(t.ie United States a basis for objection
to it ps toward their greater- economic
and commercial union should be treated
as one of the jokes^of- the platform, and
shouid not entet:into the consideration
of serious men engaged in solving a serious problem     Caoadausjte great, strong
youth, anxious to test his muscles, rejoicing in the race he is ready to run.
The United States has all it can attend
to with the territory and trade that God
intended betvfeen us. Let the political
'governments remain as they are. Let us
abolish arbitrary and artificial obstructions to our association with our friends
upon the north and derive the mutual
profit that it will certainly bring.'
Is that language not plain and honest
and straighforward enough to suit any
Canadian ? Where in history is there an
instance of annexation following improved and friendly trade relations with
a neighboring nation ? The Tcry cry of
annexation is so shallow that.it has not a
leg to stand on.
CONSERVATIVE^PLATFORM.
i. A thorough reorganization of the
method by which public expenditurt is
supervised. The increase in what _s
___i6\vh as ordlii'ary cojyij-llable expends
lure from $21,500,000 in 4896, to nearly.
$74,060,000 in fo_S, is proof of extravagance bevond any possible denial.»*».".'
2.    The granting of their  natural  re
sources to the prairie provinces.
. 3.    The  construction   of the   Hudson
Bay Railway, and its operation by an in
dependent commission.
4. The control and operation by the
state, of terminal elevators.
5. The necessarv encouragement for
e.-lalilishing and carrying on the chilled
meat industry.
6. The establishment of a permanent
tariff comrrnssion.
• 7. The granting of substantial assistance towards the improvement of our
public highways.
8.'. The extension of free rural mail delivery.     !*!<Jm
9. The extension of civil service reform.
10. The granting of liberal asssstance
to the provinces for the purpose of supplementing and extending the work of
agricultural education and for the improvement of agriculture. •
And, lastly, it pledges itself to a course
of policy and administration which will
maintain independent and unimpaired
the contToLof our own afFaiis by ihe parliament of Canada ; a policy which, while
affordingnio just cause for complaint to
any foreign nation, will find its highest
ideal in the autonomous development of
Canada as anation within tlie British
Empire.

PATHFINDING BY AUTO.
Party Reaches Princeton on the Way
North to Hazelton.
Whst is probably one of the most important pathfinding tours undertaken on
the Pacific coast in several years, was inaugurated on Monday, August 28, when
a Flanders "20" carrying a party of three
Seattle men left that city on a trip of
pearly Tjooo milei^lnto the -heart ot the
wtfttErness of northern British Columbia'.
Carrying a message from Mayor Dill
ing, of Seattle, to the mayor of Hazelton
B. C, E. F. Sands, manager of the E M-
F Northwest Company of Seattle, has
set out to win the handsome gold medal
hung up a year ago by the Pacific High-
wa_g_Association for the first car to reach
■ fc-Tglfrm _y TPps overland route. This
little city, only about sixty miles from
the Alaskan boundary, for more thau~
fifty years has condncted all its traffic
wrth the outside world through.the medium of boats.
. For some time the government of B.C.
has been preparing to build a road to
Hazelton and nifich interest is taken in
the progress of the car which arrived in
Princeton Tuesday evening ou its way
through the northern wilds to Hazelton.
In Snoqualmie Pass. Wash., the road was
so bad that it took 13 hours to get through
the car answering all demands for the
rough work. Mr. Sands is accompanied
by D. F. Batcheller, mechanician ; W.
T. Curtis, photographer; the expedition
being taken for the purpose of opening
lip a new auto touring route.

FOOD PRICES REDUCED.
Among many reductions in the price
of food made by reciprocity the following are striking examples. Bacon, lard
and many other articles have also received substantial reductions :
Cheese, per lb., present day, 3c ; duty
under reciprocity, free.
;  Sweet  potatoes, -per. bushel,   present
duty, ioc ; duty under reciprocity, free.
Salmon, prepared, present duty, 30 per
cent: duty undet reciprocity, freejw'
Oysters in bulk, per gallon, ioc : duty
under reciprocity, free.
Lobsters, frfe'sh. 25 per cent; duty under
reciprocity, free.
BEATS SWITZERLAND.
H. B. Fryberger, a leading lawyer of
Duluth, Minn., and A. H. Featherstone,
a prominent attorney of Wallace, Idaho,
were, in town recently on their way to
the Skagit" where they have large land
holdings, with whiSTi' they*were very
much pleased and for which they con-
jtrfljute a large amount annually to the
public treasury. They were piloted by
JC. O French, whom Mr. Fryberger says
is the champion camp biscuit builder of
North-America. The party went over the
sky trail to Skagit valley.and both Mr.
Featherstone and Mr. Fryberger, who
have seen the Alps and the Himalayas,
declare that the scenery of the Skagit
surpasses all.
RECIPROCITY RECIPES.
Reciprocity demands an intelligent vote
and no true citizen will submit to the dictation of any fraternal organization, political boss or party. Vote for the good of
the country and not for the Manufacturers' Association and millionaire trusts.
Political flag-waving and lip loyalty
are never practised by the true patriot;
they are the hypotritic weapons of those
void of all principle and honor on election matters.
Oh, my country and my flag, what
political crimes have been commuted in
thy name.
All workingmen know that it is extremely difficult to obtain an advance of
wages in proportion to the rise in food
prices. When bacon jumps from 20 cents
per lb. to 35 cents per lb. there is no corresponding increase of wages. The big
millionaire Chicago and Toronto pork
packers get the huge profits, and many
poor consumers are obliged to leave out
bacon from the breakfast.

TAKING STOCK.
There are reasons for the general
impression that a great mining centre will be the future of Princeton
and its environs. And in mentioning Princeton it is always understood that East Princeton is included and is a full partner in the work
of building up a large industrial
and commercial centre. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. are now increasing their plant to an output of
between four and five hundred tons <-_u-_-u .***. n__cviug uuyuie, wnen

PAST AND PRESENT.
A distinct forward movement is
observed in the industrial and commercial  institutions  which are the
life   of    Princeton    and    district.
Looking backward over a period of
eight or ten y«_yrs  there is striking
contrast  with    the dull,  lethargic
times which prevailed then and the
brisk business conditions which now
impress one at every turn.    Princeton  and  its   allied  town  of East !
Princeton  are  undoubtedly on the
high  road  to  prosperity.     In the
older  town, where  the grass grew
in the middle of the  streets before

employ a  big number of working-
men and thus  create  a city which
once established will go on increasing of its own  momentum  or  importance.    The Princeton Collieries
Co.  holding some   18,000 acres of
coal land, including  the productive
surface, is  not  likely to waste any
time  in  obtaining  dividends from
its large investment and there is indication   of an  early  start  by this
company in the  real  work of coal
mining.     The  United Empire Co.
has both  coal and  copper to mine
and will  be  large producers in the
immediate  future.    The   Platinum
Goldfields Co.  will employ considerable labor  prospecting placers in
and near Princeton  preparatory to
intended dredging on a large scale.
The sale of Voigt camp to a large
mining  and  smelting syndicate is
the beginning  of what promises to
be a  very  big   and   important industry.     The   Princeton   Lumber
Mills,    Ltd.,    is   a  well managed
industry,   expanding  as   the local
requirements demand   and  having
a field  all  its own  which  will require a vast  quantity  of lumber.
The Columbia  Coal & Coke Co. at
Coalrront,   though fourteen  miles

Coalmont
A legitimate
Investment
Today
MOST PEOPLE want to invest their money where
they are reasonably sure of a good return. If the
investment is to be made in real estate there are severa
things to be considered : The situation of the town, climatic
conditions, transportation facilities, and primarily the
amount of the monthly payroll. When these questions are
asked regarding Coalmont they may all be answered to the
credit of the town. The situation and climatic conditions
are ideal ; the main line of the V.,V. & E. railway runs
through the town on its way to Vancouver.
The Columbia Coal & Coke Co. operating here have practically an inexhaustible supply of a pure bituminous coal.
They are installing immediately a plant which will handle
2000 tons of coal in 8 hours—this means employment for between
800 and 900 men all told.
Figure out this payroll and see how many coal mining towns
in B.C. can beat it.
In a very short time Coalmont will necessarily have a population of from 2000 to 2500 people. Will this cause real estate to rise ?
We all know the answer. Then take the opportunity that presents
itself now—-buy first hand and reap the benefit of this increase.
The prices and terms are such that anyone can afford to inves
to the extent of one or two lots. They range from $175 to $550, on
terms of % cash, balance over 18 months.
