MINES AND WINING
Ascending Copper will Help to
Put  Mineral Claims
in Demand.
Canada Cannot   Meet   Demand for
Cement—Ore Exhibit Requested
for Vancouver.
Copper. 17.00.
Mr. and Mrs. S. Spencer went up to
Whipsaw yesterday and will be there for
some time on their silver lead properties.
J. S. Reynolds, ruining editor for the
Nelson Daily News, was in town this
week collecting mining matter for a
writeup
Knight & Day have struck a new lead
on the Lucky Pair and aie drifting on it
with good prospects. The ore, silver-
lead, is almost pure metal.
R Hedley, M.E., isat Bear Creek making inspection of Law's camp.
The Piinceton Coal & Land Co. expect
a revival in demand for coal after the
ist July, when half yearlv orders are
usually renewed.
R. Stinson, owner of the Princess
Maud mineral claim, Copper mountain,
is a recent arrival from Vancouver.
Cement is so scant in supply in the
west that the government has reduced
the duty very low to admit of impoits
from the United States
'Editor Star—Sir : Will you give me
space to repeat a few good things I heard
at the coast about the Similkameen:
Copper is king at present. It is the first
theme of mining conversation. Then
comes : ' What about the reported gold
in the ores at Voigt Camp? Will thev
hold ? If they do, there are few copper
propeiti s in the world to compare with
them.' Copper mining men the world
over are on the lookout for copper with
gold values. Now, this present season, is
the time to show the world that this is
only one of many Similkameen coppers
which can furnish an extensive ore body.
Copper ores rich in gold are not scarce,
but it is the exception when immense
bodies carry such gold values as given
out re Voigt Camp. On behalf of the
exhibition management and the Miners'
club of Vancouver the Princeton board
of trade is invited to collect an exhibit of
ores to be put on permanent exhibit in
Vancouver. It is for the interest of every
resident of Priuceton to see this is as
complete as possible. Mine development,
. railroad construction, the cement and
other industrials are all calling attention
to the opportunities for money making in
Princeton. -Vancouver is at last looking
outside her city limits to invest spare
cash      Let   us   encourage   capital   and
we will be benefitted and they will
thank us f.r putting them in the way of
getting in on the best investments of the
last decade Let us boost for the Similkameen, simply tell the truth about our
conditions and we will win.'—H. B.
Brown.
THE CELEBRATION.
Dominion Day celebration matters are
moving along with slow but sure stride.
The various committees are putting up
the best program yet presented in Prince
ton aud it will not be their fault if there
be any lack of amusement or entertainment on the day we celebrate. It is up
to the citizens to help the committees
carry out the duties assumed bv them.
The crowd is coming from near and far.
Many persons who have never seen
Princeton will be here on Dominion
Day. They are coming as much to see
the town as to take in the celebration.
And so it comes about that the celebration will react in a business way and
benefit all concerned.
Clearing the race track and athletic
grounds is making good progress and
there is every prospect of the grounds
being in readiness by Dominion Day.
O. Rain has been very successful in getting rid of the stumps with blasting explosives and great reports daily salute
citizens, telling with good effect the
wonder working transformation that is
going on and where soon panting steeds
and rough riders will hold the assembled
multitude in breathless expectancy.
FLAYS COURIER SCRIBE.
Editor Star—Sir: I read with disgust a 'leading article,' or was it a 'letter
from the editor? ' of the Coalmont Courier, iu which he expends the vials of his
wrath and much printer's ink in maligning a certain type of Englishman, which
he has a dre.id may drift into the vicinity
of Coalmont and Tulameen. His letter
is couched in such terms that the average
Canadian, who is educated and has a distinct knowledge of the world coupled
with ordinary refinement, would express
his regre that a go-ahead town like Coalmont should start its first newspaper b)
giving prominence to a correspondence
which is in very bad taste and which is
not calculated to give a Britisher a fair
show should he ever think of settling
down anywhere in tbe neighborhood of
Tulameen and Coalmont. I may say I
am not an Englishman, nor a Canadian,
but I have mixed a great deal with both,
and I may say that for every thousand
Englishmen I have met in different parts
of the world only one per thousand was
an impossible person and not very desirable as a neighbor or acquaintance.
'Tarn bien' the Canadian. The editor of
the Courier writes as tbo' a flood of very
objectionable Anglicans was about to
jjpur into the Tulameen district and suggests,  with   some   heat,   that the flood

RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Great Northern to Make Big
Push on Construction
Very Soon.
Railway Officials on Tour Extending
to Interior—Contracts Let in
Coquihalla Pass.
Premier McBride has recently stated
that important development works will
be undertaken by the Great Northern
railwav company in the next few weeks.
This is taken to mean extension of the
V.,V. & E. to Ashnola and building in
Coquihalla pass.
Louis W. Hill, former president of the
Great Northern railway company, having introduced his successor over the
system in a flying trip made about a
month ago, is preparing for another trip
which will include the Coquihalla pass
and the extensions of the V.,V. & E.
Mr. Hill will be accompanied by Mr.
Costello, assistant traffic manager, and
the journey will extend as far as Fort
George.
The locating survey party on the Kettle
Valley line in charge of Mr. Brookes
is in the vicinity of Otter Valley slowly
coming toward Princeton.
Maj. Anderson, rightofway agent for
the Great Northern, has been flitting
about Oroville leading editor Dallam to
predict something doing in railway building on the Wenatchee branch. If Jim is
as slow in Wash, as he is in B.C. there is
a big chance of us all taking the aerial
route before he drives a spike on these
links.    O, Jim, you're slow !
The Hope Review says that contracts
have been signed for grading by both
the Kettle Valley and V..V. & E. lines
in Coquihalla pass. The provincial government, it says, has issued orders to
certain road officials to facilitate the
work of the contractor..
The Great Northern railway company
have begun levelling the ground near
the station and alongside the track for
the purpose of erecting thereon freight
sheds     Hans Lof is doing the work.
PRINCETON TO VANCOUVER.
J. Bfjackson, proprietor of the Coal
mont Merritt auto service, in catering for
the travelling public has spared nothing
to assure speed, comfort and pleasure.
These essentials of travel along with the
safety and care provided by properly
qualified chaffeurs is certain to make this
route popular. Moreover the route is
described by travellers as rich in scenic
beauty, each quick following curve presenting some phase of perspective that is
attractive and interesting. At Coalmont,
Tulameen and   Merritt   the hotels give
first class accommodation, while at
'Thynne's' there are home food and comforts and that charm of the farm which
lingers in memory to many later days.
For tourists, hunters, anglers, prospectors, homeseekers, the Coalmont-Merritt
route has a peculiar fascination, lake and
stream, mountain and meadow blending
into a harmonious and picturesque whole.
Whether settlers or tourists all are welcome to partake of the good things and
already a fine tvpe of people from the
old country are established along this
route. From Princeton and Coalmont to
Vancouver in one day is. going 'sonief
compared with three days via the V.,V.
& E-, but Jackson uses only the Russell
high power palace car with which you
'get there' on time every time. In the
early part of July a daily service will be
begun and then all trains will be met
each wav.
BEAR TOGS AT BIG TOE.
Bear disturbed miners at Lost Cabin
Camp and Henry Skoning failing to
shoot bruin tied a piece of beef to one
end of a string and his big toe to the
other with the result after midnight that
the whole camp was astir with the screams
of Skoning being dragged hipityhop, toe
and all, toward the bush. Skoning has
now hit upon another method and will
take a month off to get even with that
black bear. He is building a scaffold
well up toward the top in a big tree.
There will be no string to a bunk of
fresh meat which he will personally
place at the foot of that tree each night
before going aloft to the scaffold. On
the scaffold he will have an assortment
of firearms with which he hopes to get
decidedly even with Mr. Bear. Skoning
means business, for his toe still pains
him and his friends have the horse laugh
on him the way the matter now stands.
Results are anxiouslv awaited.
EAST PRINCETON NOTES.

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
JUNB 12, I9I2j
June 12,1912
THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
LOCAL AND GENERAL
A. E. Howse of Nicola was in town
last weekend coming via Jackson's quick
transit auto route to Coalmout, thence
to Priuceton on Jim Hill's Oroville flyer
The road between Coalmont and Merritt
is in excellent condition, due to the
services of E. Tingley, and the time
made by auto is an immense saving com
pared with the old style fourinhand. Mr.
Howse has large interests in this section
and, rightly enough, is anxious to see
the railways connect up with the coast.
Fort George is a town now of some
2000 souls and business is good. It is
the center of railway activity and a large
increase of population is certain in the
immediate future. At the annual meeting of the Fort George board of trade
reported in the Herald of May 25, the
election of officers created lively interest,
each office being hotly contested. J. R.
Campbell, former resident of Princeton
proved his popularity by being elected to
the presidency of the board and one of
his first acts will be to deal with increased
school accommodation.
Col Lowery, sage, editor and philosopher of the Ledge, Greenwood, was in
town Saturday on a combined business
and pleasure trip. He was at Coalmont
where he supplied the newspaper with
one of his ever ready frontier plants.
The Col. looks prosperous and only reflects the general condition in Greenwood where there is a permanent payroll
and well established smelting and mining industries. He is a walking encyclopedia of Kootenay and knows the old
timers from A to Z, having been some
23 years in the country.

INEXCUSABLE DELAY.
The demands of civilization and
progress today are most noticeable
in quick transit and inter-communication. High rates of speed are
required to annihilate time as far
as possible. No one is willing to
waste a mile or even a step in circuitous travel. The shortest available route is always chosen and
whether it be construction of the
ordinary wagon road or railway
the distance between local and terminal points is reduced to the lowest possible minimum. If progress
and development are to be maintained and encouraged wagon roads
are necessary to connect contiguous
districts, affording farmers, miners
and others access  to  markets and
supplies by the most direct route.
The foregoing statements are all so
self evident and palpable that it
seems unnecessary to make them.
Star's only excuse for making them
is to again, for the seventieth time,
refer.to the unreasonable and unwarranted delay in the completion
of the Princeton-Nicola wagon road
via Onemile creek. Mr. Shatford,
M.P.P., promptly and with his
usual readiness to assist the settler
and miner, thus developing the
whole country, has caused the con-
strijiction of the Onemile road to
the boundary of his district, ending nowhere until the completion
of the Nicola end. A. Lucas, the
member for .Yale, is responsible for
the unfinished condition of the
Nicola portion and to him will accrue the stigma of having denied
settlers and miners a proper road
and of having delayed progress.
No legislator should for a moment
hesitate to build a link of some five
or six miles, or many more if needed, to connect two important districts with their central distributing
points and intervening revenue producing country. The Onemile road
will save fifteen miles detour by
the old roundabout trunk road,
a fact weighty enough in itself to
admit of no argument whatsoever
against completion of the road.
No public interest can possibly suf
fer from the direct route, for that
is in line with public convenience
and benefit and facilitates that intercommunication which begets
trade and growth. Now, Mr. Lucas,
why this delay ?
THE CREDIT SYSTEM. .
Instances are not infrequent of
the exploitations of adventurers
who taking advantage of the fact
that they are strangers in town and
their dishonest characters unknown
run accounts with all and sundry
who care to give them credit. The
usual course pursued by these
rogues is to impress the victim
with the legitimacy of their purpose or business and then by smooth
deception play upon their charity
\nd request either a cash loan or
goods. It may always be taken as
a correct inference that the person
who is not particular in purchasing
is not particular about paying and
the one who is profuse with promises to pay, but does not, is as a
rule meditating escape from a just
obligation. The credit system is
bad in that it affords dishonest persons an easy way to obtain possession, remove credit and nine-tenths
of the worry and litigation prevalent will disappear. In olden days
a debtor went to prison, nowadays
he merely goes to another country.
Princeton has had some recent experience  with  fugitive  frauds and
others who have not reached the
fugitive stage but manifest a positive dislike for paying an honest
debt. At present the law is too
slow to catch the person who
has the reputation of breaking
promises to pay, in some barbarous
countries the punishment is social
ostracism, but that is slow and
scarcely drastic enough to effect re-'
form in a thickskinned debtor. The
credit system now in vogue has
little to recommend its continuance.
The cash basis would eliminate the
spendthrift, careless, buyer and
tend toward thrift and happiness.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
J. D. Andras, manager Bank of Commerce, is erecting a handsome house in
a picturesque location on Knob Hill.
Bert Irwin has the contract.
E. Boeing, of Hedley was a visitor to
Princeton yesterday.
Recently a Vancouver editor was fined
for being an inmate and frequenter of
a disorderly house. Another is branded
as a petty thief and board bill jumper.
What kind of opinions must libertines
of this stamp express ? The press of B.
C. is clean and decent usually and it is
only when brainless irresponsibles butt
into the newspaper business that the
clean ones stand out more vividly. The
public demand a cltan press, not a slandering, foul one, void of wit, humor or
sense.
A rake is not a fit husband and that is
sufficient reason for his wife to abandon
him. The old man's home is too good a
place for such.

be diverted to Victoria, where such species apparently flourish.
That some   Englishman  has taken  a
severe  rise   out  of the Courier editor is
very evident, but whether he is to other
'men' an  objectionable type is a matter
for the opinion  of others.   The Courier
man  is bitter at   that   much maligned
force, the 'Iconas.'    I may say that having been  all  through the South African
war and having met a great many of the
Imperial Yeomanry (iho' not of them) I
am in   a   position   to   say that the first
bunch of I.Y's who went out did excellent service,  which can  be testified by
the reports of both   Lords Roberts and
Kitchener.    Personally, I know one yeomanry trooper (he was a first class man
to  hounds and  steeplechase  rider) who
-.got the V.C , and yet another, an officer,
who was recommended  for the V.C. but
did   not  get  it   because  he had already
been  recommended  for   the D.S.O.     I
may  be   wrong  but  I  don't think they
were   'poltroons,'   or   as the Coalmont
Couriej and Tulameen  Record   has  it,
'haw,  haw  boys.'     Mistakes there were
in  plenty during the war, but the I.Y
was not tlie  only   corps to make them.
Curiously enough the I.Y. men who were
with Methiien  were  mostly,London and
Liverpool corner boys, without an H. to
their name and could not have said 'haw'
if they had tried.   The editor also draws
a vividly imaginative picture of Kitchener's driving out I. Y. officers from their
hotels in Capetown, Durban and Jo'burg
at the point of the sword ' That is a 'terminological inexactitude' emanating from
the overworked, or shall I say overheated
brain  of the editor,  who winds up his
plethora of bunkum  with a reference to
his ancestral  historical records,-in which
ihe whole house of one Clark was present
at Cressy and Poictiers with the Black
Prince.   It is history that the English
■army during  that campaign  was much
hampered   by   its   enormous   crowd   of
camp followers. Scotchman.

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
building.
Before six months have passed there should be a payroll in Coalmont of
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. t
Don't let this opportunity slip along with the others which have go
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.

I Make Money out of Old Earthf
'HT'HE probabilities of success in real estate speculation are in pro=
•*■ portion to your faith in the possibilities of a town or country-
Princeton has possibilities==*some say her possibilities are illimitable. It
would be a blind, unreasonable faith, for one to invest, say, in the great
Sahara desert or inside the Arctic circle. It is different with Princeton
to most towns=-the position, the possibilities, the resources all are prima
facie, self-evident==a blind man can see them with his mental eye.
Opportunity rarely knocks more than once or twice at your door and
lightning never strikes twice in the same place. This analogy illustrates
how carefully one should exercise sound judgment in the when, how and
