Iron, Coal, Copper, Gold, Platinum—Come and See.
No sentiment, however beautiful, can compare with a lovely deed
u There never was a day so misty and gray
That the blue was not somewhere above it;
There is never a mountain top ever so bleak,
That some little flower does not love it."

THE ALASKA-YUKON
This Exhibition at Seattle will
be well Represented
l^'IS   from Dominion.
Government will Erect Large Building in which to Show Exhibits
of Canada.
The government of Canada will construct a "bni'rding at the Alaska-Yukon-
. Pacific exposition, to be held in Seattle,
June 1 to October ]6, 1909, inclusive, covering a ground space of 300 by 150 feet.
Win. Hutchinson, Canadian exhibition
commissioner, who is now in London,
has been notified by the Dominion government to leave for Seattle as soon as
.possible to select the site and make
arrangements for the construction of the
building. It has been definitely known
for some time that the government cf
Canada would participate in the big fair,
but this is the first official information
regarding the scope of the plans.
In a letter to President J. E. Chilberg,
Commissioner Hutchinson states that it
will not be possible for him to leave
London before January I, aud requests
the exposition management to select a
site that would be best available for
Canada. He also requests ground plans
of the exposition in order that the outline
of the building may be worked out before his arrival in Seattle.
The announcement that the goven -
ment of Canada will be represented on
such a large scale as the size of the site
desired indicates, has aroused general in
terest throughout the stale of Washing
ton, It is apparently the intention to
make a complete exhibit of all the varied
lesources of Canada, and the building
will also house the display from the
Yukon territory. The space which it is
proposed to cover will be the largest
occupied by any one building on the
grounds.
The mild climatic conditions of the
Puget Souiid country—Seattle never
suffers from extremes in heat or cold—
makes it possible to construct buildings
in.the winter without any great difficulties, and the Canadian government will
have no trouble in completing its exhibit
palace two months in advance of the
opening of the fair if the work is started
in January.
There are three available sites that
may be used for the Canadian building.
One is located adjoining machinery hall
on one side and the forestry building on
the other, and overlooking Lake Washington. Another is a large tract next to
the California state building, and also
overlooking Lake. Washington ; the third
is  below  the   geyser basin and   at the
lower end of the string of main exhibit!
palaces, overlooking both Lake Washington and Lake Union.
The choice of one of these' three
locations will be offered to Canada
through Commissioner Hutchinson
Ground plans and all the necessary data
have been prepared and forwarded to
him in London-, and it is expected the
commissioner will be in shape to call for
bids for the construction of the building
within a short time after his arrival in
Seattle. ^Sr^f
The Canadian exhibit will include a
display of our agriculture aud horticulture. Our mining resources will be
shown and special attention will be given
to dairying, and some of the finest stock
in tbe world will be shown in this
display.
In his letter Commissioner Hutchinson
states that the work of collecting the
various exhibits has been under way for
several months,' a_d the entire display
will be assembled three months in advance of the opening of the exposition.
THE BOABD OF TBADE.
Annual Meeting and Election of Officers for Ensuing Year.
The regular annual meeting; of the
Board of Trade was held last Monday, at
which the following members weie present : Messrs. Marlow, Ross, Conn, Avery,
Bell, Cochrane, Charlton, McDougall and
Wright.
Officer's elected ■ for ensuing year are :
President, W. C. McDbugall ; Vice-
President, J. M. Wright ; Secretary and
Treasurer, A. J. Marlow ; the Executive
Committee was appointed by the President, as follows: Messrs. Hall, Waterman, Cochrane, Charlton and Wright.
Communications from the Provincial
Secretary, Victoria, advising retention of
a lawyer for incorporating purposes and
enclosing statute bearing on municipal
incorporation ; from L. W. Shatford, M.
P.P., re road to cemetery, and many letters to secretary from inquirers all over
the continent and asking for copies of
Board of Trade booklet.
The remaining copies of the descriptive booklets of Princeton and district
were ordered by the Board to be distributed throughout America and Great
Britain.
Discussion of a proposed exhibit of
ore at the Alaska-Yukon Exposition in
Seattle next year elicited a generally expressed sentiment favorable to the proposition. It is the wish of the Board to
cooperate with the public in making a
good ore exhibit at Seattle.
President McDougall offered some very
good suggestions as to the work and
scope of the Board and expressed bis-
thanks for the honor conferred upon him
as their new president. He urged compensatory action by the  Board for free

SEED FOR FARMERS
Dominion Government Distributes Free Seed of the
Best Varieties.
Inducement   to Farmers to Improve
Quality of Grain, Potatoes and
Ensilage Corn.
By instruction of the Hon. Minister of
Agriculture a distribution is being made
this season of samples of superior sorts of
grain and potatoes to Canadian farmers
for the improvement of seed. The stoc k
for distribution has been secured mainly
from the Experimental Farms at Indian'
Head, Task., and Brandon, Man. The
samples consist of oats, spring wheat,1
barley, peas, Indian corn (for ensilage
only) and potatoes. The quantity of
oats sent is 4 lbs., and of wheat or barley 5
lbs., sufficient in each case to sow one-
twentieth of an acre. The samples of
Indian corn, peas and potatoes weigh 3
lbs. each. A quantity of each of the fol
lowing varieties has been seenred for this
distribution :—
Oats —Banner, Danish Island, Wide-
Awake, White Giant, Thousand Dollar,
Improved L'igowo, all white varieties.
Wheat.—Red varieties, Red Fife
(Beardless), Chelsea, Marquis, Stanley
and Percy (early beardless), Preston,
Huron and Pringle's Champlain (early
bearded). White varieties. White Fife
(beardless), Bobs (early beardless). •
BARI.EY-—Six-rowed.—Mensury, Odessa, and Mansfield. Two rowed.—Invincible and Canadian Thorpe.
Fiei<d Peas.—Arthur and Golden
Vine.
Indian Corn (for ensilage).—Early
sorts, Angel of Midnight, Compton's
Early and Longfellow; later varieties,
Selected- Learning, Early Mastodon and
White Cap Yellow Dent.
j Potatoes.—Early varieties, Rochester
Rose and Irish Cobbler. Medium to
late varieties, Carman No. 1, Money
Maker, Gold Coin and Dooley. The
later varieties are, as a rule, more productive than the earlier kinds.
Only one sample can be sent to each
applicant, hence if an individual receives
a sample of oats he cannot also receive
one of wheat, barley, peas, Indian corn
or potatoes. Lists of names from one individual, or applications for more than
one sample for one household, cannot be
entertained. The samples will be sent
free of charge through the mail.
Applications should be addressed to
the Director of Experimental Farms,
Ottawa, and may be sent in any time
from the ist of December to the 15th of
Februaiy, a'ter which the lists will be
closed, so that the samples asked for may
be sent out in good time for   sowing.
Applicants should mention the variety
they prefer, with a second sort as an alternative. Applications will be filled in
the order in which they are received so
long as the supply of seed lasts. Farmers are advised to apply early to avoid
possible disappointment. Those applying for Indian corn or potatoes should
bear in mind that the corn is not usually
distributed until April, and that potatoes
cannot be mailed until danger from frost
in transit is over. No postage is required
on mail matter addressed to the Central
Experimental Farm, Ottawa.
Wm. Saunders, .
Director of Experimental Farms.
MINERAL EXHIBITS.
R. W. Brock, Deputy Minister' of
Mines at Ottawa, writes as follows to the
President of the Nelson Board of Trade
regarding the ore exhibit at the Alaska-
Yukon Exposition at Seattle in 1909 :—
Dear Sir—I am sufficiently advanced
with the arrangements with the agricultural depsrtment regarding the mineral
exhibit at Seattle for' the work to begin.
Not a great deal of time remains so that
no delays must occur. The boards of
trade may make arrangements for the
collection. The exhibit at the close of
the Seattle exhibition will be brought to
Ottawa for permanent exhibition in the
splendid new national museum. Of
course, we want, fhe agricultuial department wants and you in British Columbia
want the best possible exhibit.
The specimens should be one cubic foot
in size. A few very large specimens of
good quality would be first-class things
to have, one for instance of silver-lead
ore, one of copper-gold ore, etc. There
should also be specimens illustrating the

THE FLAG QUESTION.
Editor Star—Sir: Any one who tries
to get a new idea into people's heads is
sure to get into trouble. Most people
hate the trouble of thinking as much as
thev hate a cold bath, and the less they
know about a subject the more they despise any new ideas about it. For instance : From Galileo, who narrowly escaped being burned for saying that the
earth was round, to Darwin, every advance in science has been fought by the
church, which has nothing at all to do
with science. On the other hand, every
advance in theology finds its most imolac-
able enemies not in the pulpit, but in
the pew.
Even so, various people, including
some who do not know which side up a
flag should be flown, have objected to
my remarks on the so called Canadian
flag (which is not the flag of Canada at
all, but only an ensign that our trading
ships carry) as being disloyal to Canada.
If they would take the trouble to think,

OUE VABIED RESOURCES—
The great diversity of resources
with which Princeton district is
blessed may occasionally prove to
be a stumbling block to some intending investor abroad, who has
not made a personal investigation
of this country. Mining and agriculture seem to him utterly incongruous in one district. He thinks
that a mining section is incapable
of sustaining two or more resources
and without further investigation
or inquiry he loses interest and,
perhaps, the best opportunity of his
life for money-making.
Reference in detail has been made
heretofore in the Star to our varied
resources. It is a theme, however,
by no means exhausted. For new^
Tig-it" is continually being thrown
upon these resources by experience
gained'in other places aud expen-
^meritafibn at home. A few years
ago it' was a common belief that
fruit generally could not be produced here owing to climatic conditions due to altitude. The hollow-'
ness of that belief has been thoroughly exposed. No one doubts
now .that apples can be grown to
•perfection in Princeton district.
Peaches, pears and other less
hardy fruits have not been subject
to vixperimental cultivation, as with
apples, nevertheless, it is the opinion of many persons acquainted
with fruit growing that most of the
semi tropical fruits can be grown
here upon ground judiciously selected. Wild,, and small garden
fruits grow with unusual profusion
and offer a field in themselves for
the establishment of the canning,
packing- and drying industries.
There is scarcely any limit, to the
fruit industry here when once all
doubt is dispelled as to growth and
production. ,
While this country is essentially
mineral aud must depend on it as
the source of its wealth, there are
those other natural resources which
must not be underestimated. A
country's wealth is measured by its
resources. Agriculture, fruit production, cattle raising and the manufacture of lumber are all secondary
in consideration of our vast mineral resources but all combined
make a total of natural wealth that
•cannot be surpassed anywhere on
this continent.
It  is  with    pleasure,   therefore,
that the Star  receives  information
that a scheme  is  being  evolved to
produce fruit on.a large-scale in this
vicinity. When the plans are perfected due publicity will be given to
the undertaking as well as every
encouragement extended toward
its success.
To have hundreds of acres of
wild land turned into productive
fruit acreage within a few miles of
Princeton is an enterprise of unusual concern to citizens and consumers generally. The reasonably
anticipated expansion of our mining population resultant from tbe
production of coal as soon as transportation 'is given and the devel-i
opment of the ore deposits to bef
found ever}'where, will create a|
good and steady home market.

The question " Why do not men,
women and young persons attend
public worship in larger numbers?"
is being asked in religious circles
the world over. Scarcely a well
filled place of worship anywhere.
Is it the fault of so-called christians
not living as they profess, bringing
ridicule'upon their church and religion by slander-mongering and
selfishness ? Is some olcigy, osophy
or ism preached instead of the old,
soul-stirring, converting,, reforming
and magnetic gospel ? Are church
members and all who*call themselves christians..exhibiting by their
daily life and conversation the faith
and hope they profess to have?
Is not the scoffer a by-product of
the self-righteous person ? The
Great Exemplar . and Teacher told
the people to lift Him up and He
would draw all men unto Him.
There is the remedy for empty
churches. If there were lifting instead of pulling and hauling and
sneering among professing christians there would be no lack of attendance. Earnestly get into the
lifting attitude with bended knees
and, back. Never mind your neighbor's faults. Root up your own
before you criticise and tattle. Who
will lift ? |

I think the best plan will be for the
boards of trade to notify the managers
who can supply such material of what is
wanted, the excellence desired, etc., and
ask them to be on the lookout for such
material, for it is not always to be picked
up at a moment's notice. Then, when
we have a little time to select material we
can send Mr. Broadbent out to select the
exhibit material from these picked samples. So far as possible all parts of the

you get the various boards of trade busy

TfiE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
The brazen look* has back of it the
crooked characfietithat knows not shame
and cares not what/people think.
Wallflowers do not always deserve ridicule : they should cultivate attractiveness and those social qualities which
provoke sympathy and love.    Inhere  are
wallflowers outside the ball room.

An exchange says : Small men with
small purposes do not make a community
lively and progressive. The man who
. never contributes to public enterprise or
voluntarily assists any public enterprises
is not worth coaxing to remain in a town,
and should he decide to move it is always
a matter of congratulation. It is units
and not mere cyphers that count lor
something.    Be a unit!
Bold, ill-mannered youths are the product of the home, and>home is the product of the parents. Everybody likes
well-behaved children, hence their many
friends. SsAss

The difference between the true and
false person, the backbiter and the friend,
is that the one will tell you kindly of

THE FLAG QUESTION.
From 1st page.
(which they won't) they will see that the
s toe is on the other foot. I am a Canadian and proud of it. I believe that
Canada has a future second to none, and
that whether in industry, commerce or
war, Canadians have no cause to be
ashamed of themselves or their country.
It is; exactly for this reason that I do
not want to see my country represented
by a flag that would be a disgrace to the
negro republic of San Domingo. The
Star wants to know if I can propose a
better flag, to which I would like to reoly
that no one could propose a worse one.
What is the emblem of Canada ?
Everybody knows, from the school child*-
ren who sing " The Maple Leaf Forever,"
to the Boers, who learned to have a deep
respect for any soldier who wore a maple
-leaf on his helmet. The maple grows in
every province of Canada, and is looked
on ever> where as the Canadian tree : why
not put it on the flag? A laage maple
leaf, replacing the present dime museum
on the fly of the flag, would give us an
ensign at once simple, beautiful, easily
recognized, completely understood and
universally respected.
The Laurier Government claim to have
made Canada a nation. Why then dc
they not «ive us a flag that a great nation
need not be ashamed of? Is it because
they are too busy spending the peopled
money ?

FIRE ALARMS, &c.
Four sharp taps on the bell, with slight
pause between each four, will indicatt
that the fire is in Ward I. Two sharp
taps, with pause between each two, will
locate the fire in Ward 2.
Continuous moderate ringing of the
bell will be used for meetings of any
kind, for public demonstrations or foi
giving the correct time daily. Toiling
for the dead will be one stroke of the
bell with measured intervals of ten seconds, ad.

Stomach trouble is but a symptom cf. and nol
in itself a true disease. We think of Dyspepsia.
Heartburn, and lndigest'on as real diseases, yet
they are symptoms only of a certain specific
Nerve sickness—nothing else.
It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Shoop
In the creation of that now very popular Stomach
Remedy—Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Going direct'
to the stomach nerves, alone brought that success'
and favor to Dr. Shoop and his Restorative. Without that original and highly vital principle, no
Buch lasting accomplishments were ever to be had.
For stomach distress, bloating, biliousuessi'baa'

Restorative—Tablets or Liquid—and see for your-
self what it can and will do. We sell and cheerfully recommend
