SLOW RAILWAY- BUILDING.
No Indications of Advance on the Last
Remaining Link. s
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer/), the
V. V. & E. railway, has announced that
the Great Northern railway ba£definitely
abandoned the idea of bufldlng a line
between Sumas Landing eym Hope, par-
all el ing the Canadian _Jor|hern line, but
through an arrangement with Sir William
MacKenzie will use that line for a distance
of thirty-eight miles. The Great Northern .__Tprobably reciprocate by permitting the Canadian line to use its tracks
between Vancouver and Port Kells, at
III least until the latter has builtiits line be-
l/Uween Port Maun and Port Kells.
During his month's tour, Mr. Kennedy
secured the approval of the board of
railway commissioners at Ottawa of the
plans of the V. V. & E. railway for forty
one miles from Tulameen to the source
of t__T~_oqi__alla_-_ver. W__Te at St.
Paul, Mr. Kennedy was authorized to
call for tenders for the construction of
nine wooden bridges on the line between
Abbottsford and Sumas Landing, in the
building of which some five million feet
of timber will be used.
No instructions for the construction of
the line from Tulameen to the summit
have yet been issued. The work will be
heavy. The impression prevails that ij
will not be undertaken until next year,
as the outfits of railway contractors work
ing have been withdrawn from railhead
to Tulameen.—Province.
*
[The railhead is still at Princeton and
there is not a sign of tracklaying on the
completed grade to Tulameen. J. Mac-
alpine, chief of commissary for Stewart
& Welch, railway contractors, is the last
of the firm's employees remaining here.
A lot of contractors' rails and implements are rusting nicely in the yard, all
on account of Jim. Will he ever get this
last link built?—Ed.]
DOMINION DAT.
Owing to improvements on Vermilion
Av. no-jaces or sports cari" beheld on it
as in -f_r_____ years. Dominion Day is
drawing, near and no suitable grounds
have been fourd. It will not redound to
the credit of Princeton to permit her
day to pass without proper celebration.
Outsiders are planning to spend the day
with citizens and it will be a disappointment if there is nothin' doin'. Seeing
that the gentlemen are hardly equal to
the task of providing a day's menu of
celebration sports perhaps the ladies
would suggest and assist them out of the
dilemma. An old fashioned picnic with
games, baseball, foot races, swings, band,
bucking horse exhibition, squaw races,
daylight danre, calithumpian procession,
feudejoie, balloon or kite ascension, fireworks, barbecue, &c.'." would help pass
the 'il_y we celebrate.'

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Population of Princeton must Show
Steady Growth.
S. L. Smith, of the Hedley Gold Mines
Co., was a visitor to Princeton last week,
the first time he had set foot in the great
coal town of the Similkameen. As with
all strangers, the first thing that impressed him was the natural beauty of the
town. With the great and varied resources surrounding Mr. Smith appreciates the possibilities of development.
Mr. Cleveland, D.L.S , is working up
Silver creek on the west slope, endeavoring to fiud a route for the interprovincial
trunk road over Hope monntains.
At the concert the other evening there
was considerable te-hee'ing and audible'
whispering,-"__uch to the annoyance of
performers. The habit of te-heeing and.
tittering . at public gatherings is a borrowed custom from the Cannibal islands,
where the natives te hee just before feasting on a good, fat, tender missionary.
The habit is spreading in America and
one not infrequently observes it even
at religious services.

more salient parts may be touched, leaving to the audience their generous meed

all she won prolonged applause, to which.",
she cordially responded.
.Miss Daly as a pupil reflects great cre__>
it upon her teacher (Mrs. Brown) and
gives much promise. A bright future is
in store for this young lady, ttSr musical
talent and voice leaving no doubt as to'
her already discovered and latent
ability. She won many deserved encomiums.
The Misses Marjorie and Gertrude
Smith charmed the audience with their
exquisite instrumental selections, one
being played with the left hand alone
which showed unusual skill and ability.
,The gifted young ladies have a certain
touch aud mastery of the piano which
command appreciation and genuine applause.
Mr. Daly gave two numbers on the
violin, for which he was encored. His
style and execution are classic, creating
a favorable impression on his auditors
who wili always welcome him. In the
cello duet with Mrs. Smith both were
loudly applauded.
Little Miss Wheeler gave recitations
in such quaint and humorous style that
won the hearts and plaudits of all.
Mr. Sauve is right at home'with [the
jargon of the habitant and his readings
were well received. It is hoped he will
appear again.
Mr. Waterman was, iu his usual good

to Mrs. Brown and all her company for

LONDJONTIMES' BAD BREAK
A paper posing as the leader of
independent English political ideas
and  thought, yclept  the Times, of
London, displays a narrow, islandish
spirit when it accuses Sir Wilfrid
Laurier  of using  a  'fine syrup of
words'    in   speaking   of   imperial
unity.    For  any   newspaper    possessing  the  generally   paraded intelligence and honor of the Times
to  sneer  at  Sir Wilfrid's protestations of loyalty to the empire after
he has given so many proofs of his
sincerity, shows  a carping,  prejudiced,    if   not    malicious,     spirit
From whom came the preferential
tariff,  imperial  penny postage, the
blood of patriotic sons on the veldt
and many  other loyal tokens tending toward  imperial  unity and the
consolidation of the  empire ?    The
Canadian premier initiated and gave
effect  to   legislation    which   made
these things    actual   links  in the
problem of a geographically seatter-
«d  yet  indivisible  empire.     Now,
•the Times with  very  bad manners
fairiy insults the man  who is guest
■of London  and  the   British nation
and strives to weaken  his prestige
_n  the  imperial  conference.     Tbe
hypocrisy of the Times in flaunting
an  ostensible  independence and at
the same   time   pandering   to the
anti   progressive Tories  and fogey
fiscal   reformers,   is unmistakable.
As the elder and possibly  more independent of several children in the
family  of  empire  neither  Canada
nor its Premier will bend the knee
to any section of the British public
who  require  servility  or cringing
as a test  of loyalty.    Equality and
a full partnership are the only terms
on  which  a  solid foundation for a
great A nglo-Saxon empire may be
laid.     On   these  terms  it may be
possible to include the United States,
our  strayed  elder  brother,  in the
with  it some day  attempt  to flog
him ?    When the sou sits in council with his father there is common
cause    and  united action ;  denied
that the son either leaves  the parental  roof and sets  up for himself
or remains at home little better than
the hireling.    Sir Wilfrid as a dutiful son, has averred his loyalty time
and again, and his works prove it.
He has offered all any self respecting premier could and he is waiting
for the mother  country to manifest
some  preference for her own children.    Britain does a  rattling good
business with her colonies in lending money and trade and if it were
not for these mere sentiment would
not bind.    Business is business, and
all governments  cater   to it.    Star
has  guardedly  refrained from any
remark  that  would  embarrass the
members of the imperial conference
or jeopardize  the pending arbitration peace pact between Britain and
the United States, but it  cannot al
low the opportunity to pass to condemn the  Times  for its petty, personal attack  upon Sir Wilfrid Laurier.    He   is the leading statesman
of the empire, working for the common   weal   of united empirists   and
all humanity; he is opposed to militarism, a fading fad of the jingoes
and such blatant  newspapers as the
Times.      Imperial   unity   from tbe
pen   of a   Times scribe   is nothing
more than a   party   warhoop, lacking in that sincerity which convirt:-
and   converts,   yet   provoking  animosity   and   agitation.     Our part
i;ig advice   to  the   Times is not to
trifle with this   great question, cutting • out   al!   personal animus and
forgetting   that   Canada  is   a mere
playground   of partizan   politieiai.s
striving to hold or gain the reins oi
power.    It is   now a nation within
an empire,   to which dignified position it has   been   elevated   by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and if his words are
given   due  consideration  the que,,
tions of united  empire, reciprocity
and universal   peace will  soon be
solved.
