S LAST TRAMP.
jDhn^Houston, Journalist, Legislator.
Traveller, Crosses Big Divide.
Knowing the character, habits and per
sonal idiosyncrasies of John Houston, who
recently died on his way out from Fort
George to obtain medical attention. Star
desires to add its tribute ot respect to
one who has made considerable history
in this province and the neighboring republic. He was a tmau of strong convictions, dogged, energetic, a true friend
and bitter enemy, generous to a fault.
He always called a spade a spade in writing or in speech, and this frequently provoked war. But there was an Irish
strain in him and a row in no way dis-
c~>uraged or depressed him. As mayor of
Nelson and in the provincial legislature
as representative he was always in his
usual element, "hot water.' But he was
honest, truthful and conscientious and
these qualities with his ability and supreme iearlessness won him many admirers and staunch friends. Faults he
had, and many, but he was honest enough
to confess them—his worst was always
visible. As a fellojyvvorkman Star has
only kind reco]!ections^5F~Trfmari<I extends to his widow and relatives sincere
sympathy.
John Houston was bocn near Toronto
6i y4ais_ago. He served his apprenticeship to the printing business in,Mejupbis,
Tenn. He and the Hon. Wm. Temple-
man were fellow workmen there. The
deceased was a noted tramp and had cox -
ered the west more than once on foot.
He  started   the  .Truth,   at  Donald,   the

at New Westminster, Empire at Prince

FIRE  CAUSED  SMALL DAMAGE.
An alarm of fire was turned in Monday from the Bohemian Lodge, Vermilion Av , occupied by R. Soutter, which
luckily was discovered intltBe to prevent
any extensive damage. The fire originated from the stovepipe leading through
the roof. The fire brigade and many
others responded to the call of the bell
the incipient flames being quickly subdued. Fire Chief Campbell and Bert
Irwin did excellent service and all who
rendered any assistance are gratefully
remembered by Mr. Soutter, who has a
large collection of useful and ornamental
house belongings which he would be very
loth to have destroyed by fire.

guarantee of the same courteous service
as formerly. The P. Burns Co. is an institution with a continental reputation
for doing big things as butchers and providers and fortune seems to smile on all
their undertakings.

The medical health officer suggests that

known the porosity of the ground in this

considered.

soon. All the constituent parts of a good
cement are to be found here.
Within thirty days an important mining deal, including a smelter, is expected
to be put through. The deal will rank
closely to that of the Nickel Plate in
point of importance and will be of great
benefit to Princeton district.
TWO BANKS IN PRINCETON.
The large safe for the Eastern Townships Bank, not being yet in position,
the doors of the building are not yet
open to the public. As honey attracts
bees so 'beesness' attracts banks. Two
banks in Princeton looks as though
money was abont to 'loosen up,' but the
rumor of a third bank is more than,the
most optimistic could hope for. Of.
course there is no law to prevent banks
starting here. It is a free country. And
there is gold and silver here, two very
needful articles in the running.of a bank.
Banks are not like newspapers. Money
is their life, whereas the paper lives on
the critic's cold crumbs, standoffs, uupaid
subscriptions and bills, and free announcements, puffs, &c„ &c. Welcome,
banks.

PROMISES FULFILLED.
News that another railway line
will tap Princeton is good news and
will be received with genuine satisfaction, by all citizens. In the discussion on the Kettle River Valley
bill introduced in the provincial
house during the session just closed,
Premier McBride explained that an
arrangement had been reached with
the railway company to the effect
that a branch line would be built
into Princeton. During the campaign last fall there were aspersions
cast upon the announcement made
then in speeches by the Premier and
Mr. Shatford regarding the branch
to Princeton and malicious enemies
said that it was only a 'vote catching dodge.' They also said that
the K.V. railway would not be built
and that the whole thing was 'put
up' for poHtical purposes. Well,
there are always those ready to besmirch the characters of their superiors and attribute foul motives
for honest effort—both the Premier
and Mr. Shatford ran the gamut of
these mud throwers and today tbey
stand out boldly in the light of
time as having lived up to their
promises. Twenty-five miles of the
Kettle Valley will be built in a year
as the result of the Premier taking
care of the interests of the people
and Mr. Shatford has been no less
alert in behalf of his constituents
and will, no doubt, see that the
branch to Princeton is ready to
operate upon the completion of the
main line between Nicola and Pen-
ticton.
STOP THE EVIL.
There are good grounds for the
action of the Board of Trade in endorsing the resolution of the Crat-
brook Board suggesting to the Attorney-General an amendment to
the Municipal Clauses Act wherein
a license fee of $100 shall be charged
itinerant real estate agents. It is
an evil of which the public are generally unaware that the life blood
of small towns is being sapped by
these omnivorous pests who swoop
down upon unsuspecting persons
in the country. The ever ready
map and glib tongue are not too
scrupulous in describing the land
or the lot to be sold. In many
cases sheer misrepresentation and
distortion of facts are used to lure
on the investor. Glowing accounts
of fortunes made are rehearsed and
the final consent of the poor investor  is  obtained under pressure
of words. If the Attorney-General
will remedy this he, will relieve the
country of a nuisance and save
many a poor person the.fruits of
wildcat speculation. Another aspect of the question is the loyalty
which is due from every citizen
to his or her own town or district.
While there is good and safe in
vestment at or near home there is
no reason for going outside, especially when the property cannot be
examined at once and the element
of chance is beyond reasonable
speculation. Many thousands of
dollars are being tied up in coast
city property which ought to be
invested in Princeton and other interior towns.
A USEFUL SESSION.
The first session of the present
provincial legislature ended last
Thursday. It was probably the
most unique assemblage of legislators ever seen in any man's country. An Opposition of four in a
house of forty-two and those four
subdivided into groups of two each.
The Opposition, so called, in this
case is a mere formality, a mere
accident, for, if they had not been
elected the legislative proceedings
would have resulted just the same.
Premier McBride is the first to demonstrate the possibility of governing well without an Opposition and
this leads up to the suggestion that
it is possible to govern righteously
without a second political party.
If the Premier can prove in the
next three sessions that it is possible to govern this province without
asecond party and thus demonstrate
the superfluity of an Opposition he
will have erected a monument to
his memory that will outlast the
ages. There is a large element of
the serio-comic in the powerless
Opposition holding down seats at
Victoria. A lot of useful legislation has been made law this session.
Premier McBride is on the highway
to fame if not to fortune:
EXTENSION OE TIME.
The extension of time recently
granted to the V^. & E. railway
by the Hous//»t Commons is in
line with^pu'rj'ent thought and approval. Mr: Burrell, M. P., thoroughly and truthfully represented
his constituents when he stated that
he did not wish to interrupt construction to the coast by offering
any opposition to the extension of
the charter limits. He said that
he was anxious to see the road
completed as soon as possible from
Princeton westward as it was of
great importance to southern B.C.
More than $14,000,000 have now
been spent in construction and he
understood it was the intention of
the contractors to push the work.
Mr. Lennox, M. P., said that the
company had evidently shown good
faith and that was the chief r-oirt
to be considered.

BIG REDUCTION IN TAXES.
NOTICE.
Lessening the  Burdens of the Taxpayer Makes Good Beading.
The people of the Similkameen will
have much less to pay in taxes this year
than formerly owing to the legislation
enacted during the session brought to a
close last Thursday, loth inst Until
June 30 of this year a discount of 25 per
cent, will be given on all taxes paid, in
distinction to a 10 per cent discount last
year. Any person having paid their
taxes prior to the enactment of the
change will be refunded the difference
in discount.
On personal property the tax rate has
been reduced from 3-5 to 1-2 per cent. •
and as assessment notices for the year's
taxes have all been issued and the taxes
are due, it is impossible to have the new
rate come into effect until the assessment
is made this year, hence, the 25 per cent,
discount is made to adjust the difference.

BIG REDUCTION IN TAXES.
From 4th page.
The assessment this year will exempt
farmers' personal property up to JjSiooo
from taxation, in former years it was only
#500 worth exempted. The tax rate on
incomes between $1000 and $2000 per
annum h; s been reduced from 1% to I
per cent.; on incomes between $2000 and
£3000 from lj£ to 1% per cent.
The reduction in taxation will jog the
revenue down a point or two, but the
government will regain all loss in the
asceuding value of properties. Regarding the poll tax of $3 which some have
in one way and another evaded for years
it is so enacted that all arrears may be
collected.
