THE BOARD OF TRADE
Condemns Criminal Neglect of
Princeton by Someone
Re Telephone.
Publicity Committee   Appointed   to
Edit and Print Polder Soon
as Possible.
At the regular meeting of the Board of
Trade Monday night there was a good
attendance and important matters dealt
with. A long communication from C. S.
Stevens, Superintendent of the Dominion
telephone line,~expressihg regret for the
absence of a public phone in Princeton
and disclaiming responsibility therefor.
He Stated he had documentary evidence
to prove where the blame rested,
Mr. Stevens urged the establishment
of a telephone exchange in Princeton,
and said he wag{<jSgillipg\. to help bring
about any immediate solution of the
present diffichliy. He further stated that
it the Board would recommend a man to
D. Ross, M.P*, he (Stevens)had no doubt
that an agent would, be appointed and
the officc'-'reopened. He thought the
appointment.jjif.a. good agent would be
the means of increasing the revenue of
the office.
A long discussion ensffea in which
the opinion was freely expressed that
Princeton is prejudicially treated by some
person havjng .influence or authority in
the telephone management. The damage done to the town and the serious inconvenience to business was emphasized
the tone of all the speeches being resent,
ful and condemnatory of the unfair treat?
ment handed out to this community in
the matter of telephone accommodation. *
Mr. Waterman pointed out that the
Vermilion Fork's Co. had, by the'erection
of a private telephone line connecting
the mine, office, ,&c., laid the foundation
for a local exchange which the company,
no doubt, would extend when the field
was afforded.
A motion recommending H. H. Avery,
jr., to D Ross, M.P., for the position of
telephone agent was unanimously endorsed. Mr. Lumsden asked that line
connection be given as formerly to the
Howse Co., and that the Board include
this in the motion of recommendation—
agreed to. He stated that through personal pique and spite telephone communication had been withdrawn from the
company.
The question o' a folder for advertising all the resources of Princeton district was heartily concurred in by all'the
members. A general committee," to be
subdivided, was formed for the purpose
of outlining the work and allotting the
sub-committees their subjects, which will
treat of .placer, ore and coal mining, agriculture, horticulture, grazing, water
power, smelter possibilities, fire and
builders' brick, cement, natural paint,
luniber and timber, hunting, fishing,
shooting, trapping, scenery, historical
sketch, railways, roads, people, commercial institutions,  religion,  social condi-

FRUIT TREES LOADED.
Climate and Soil Give- Evidence of
Their Productiveness.  .
Hugh Hunter's garden and orchard are
well worth a special trip to his country
seat to have an adequate conception of
the possibilities of frr^it.raising and vegetable growing. Tomatoes and cucumbers, raspberries and currants, early and
late apples, these, and many other kinds
were growing** 1" perfection. Some of
the apple trees were so heavily laden
that some qfjthj&jgongegted Simbs had to
be relieved of their superabundant burden. If there should be any doubting
Thomas or hesitating Hezekiah regarding
the growth of the tender sorts of vegetables and the perfection of apples it is
only necessary to see Mr. Hunter's place
from the main trunk road .and which has
been so imperfectly and brieflv described.
There are other gardens and orchards in
jKisjKectkJn Which . would equally well
repay the visit of all interested in the
fruit and vegetable ''industry. Well situated lands in .this district have been demonstrated to contain fruit growing pro.
perties and the requisite climatic environment^ fos successful fruit and vegetable
production.- ¥

GOLDHUNTEB, ON GRANITE.
Charles Lambert and wife were in'to'wn
last Wednesday from Granite Creek.
He is busy with bis big placer mining
proposition at the North ■• Fork and now
that the water, is low and • lowering no
time will be lost' i'n'digging'for that ever
seductive' metal: Gold. Six hundred
feet of the creek will be flumed at first
and that amount of ground worked out
then it will be shifted on as required.
The distance to bedrock is the query Mr.
Lambert has to answer. It is there the
gold and plajinum lodged in the long
ago and he proposes to dislodge some of
it for his own use and benefit—(hope he
gets a ton of it.) Mr. Lambert is an
old Atlin miner and made a snug fortune
there. He is an expert miner and conducted a placer mining school in the
Klondyke days, some of his pupils being
almost able to find gold by scent. Some
very pretty souvenirs of Atlin in the form
of nugget watch chains, Mr. Lambert
carries with him and are most interesting. He is an earnest advocate of a
wagon' road along Granite Creek, a work
that the government is willing to undertake when some of the tardy ones make
up their minds they want it.
Ju=t as those premonitory' signs of
earthquaxe are unmistakable and distinct so also is it with the'building of the
railway to Princetqn, signs of which are
equally evident and one may be sure,
much more pleasant 'to take.' At last,
preparations for actual grading have
begun.
Superintendent of construction, Geo.
Cunningham, was in town Tuesday ordering material for a camp to be started
'on the Similkameen River about three
miles below town. This camp will serve
two heavy rock cuts, one on either side.
| Another camp for • earthwork will be
built.near Allison and still another nigh

It will take about seven months to

no public telephone connection with
Princeton these painful incidents would
be avoided. Mr1. Fitzgerald has the sincere sympathy of many friends, which
is also extended to family of deceased in
the loss of father and breadwinner. The
family, mother and five children, resides
at Suma's, Wash., where" Mr. Fitzgerald
died on'July 23rd.
PROGRESS IS OBSERVED.
WILD FRUIT PLENTIFUL.
Parties from the hills and Hope Mountains give it out that there will be
'oceans' of wild fruit this year. Someone has a forturre' staring them in the
face who will embark in the canning or
'drying of wild .fruits, especially huckleberries, which now cost at least 25 or 30
cents per tin of one pint. A good tonic
wine is produced from the olalla and as
a dietetic fruit in the form of "soap-
olalla" it is said to be beneficial in constipation and of some merit in spurring
on a jaded or lazy liver. The pill editor
now leaves the reader to act as he wills,
the simple curatives and the simple life
are his if he desires.
Trip Through the Similkameen, Land
of Minerals and other Resources.
Ernest Thomas arrived from Penticton-
last week on a visit and was pleased to>
note the evidences of progress in the
substantial buildings that are now
in course of erection • and those that
have , bee_n„ erected. , His faith in the
great undeveloped .natural resources of
this country has never wavered a little
bit. The times "are fairly good in Penticton, and Keremeos is now passing
through the primary stages of a far-
reaching revolutionary movement affecting the social.and agricultural conditions*
in that prolific section. Newcomers with,
money and new ideas are peoplirigiiaiTr
the Penticton-Kerenieos country. Fruit
and beef are Ihe spine aud staples of the
district. k*. ...
Hedley -is, Mr. Thomas says, a much,
improved tojyu' from a business standpoint since he. .last saw it. No doubt
about its future; the gold is there and
wherever this alluring stuff is there will
be something'- doing and no empty din—
. ner -pails . standing around with a bad'
smell in.them. Of course it's wrong to
■covet, but if Princeton had the Nickel.
! Plate and the Daly Reduction payroll it
would be a town of a few thousand people, at least. Two hundred delegates
are coming to Penticton the second weeir-
of August to inspect irrigation methods
and otherwise get in touch with the people and their fruit culture.
; Mi. Thomas returned to Penticton on.
Monday. He says that Geo. Winkler,
an old time Princtonian, is in the hills
searching for a lost mine, his quest now-
baying extended over a period of four
years.
MESSAGE WAS TOO LATE.
R. Fitzgerald has had a sad experience
through the absence of a public telephone in Princeton. A message from a
dying brother having to go to Hedley for
transmission by post to Princeton took
so long in transit that he was not able to
reach the sick one before his life departed and thus too late to meet him alive.
If the manager of the line would make
it known  on  the  outside that theie was

In   the   forthcoming   Dominion
elections a Socialist candidate will
be in the field along with the Liberal and   Conservative   aspirants.
While it is not at all probable that
a Socialist will  be elected  he will
at least, have the pleasure of harassing the flanks of the other parties.    It is  generally admitted that
the Socialist voto cuts into the Liberal ranks more than  that of the
Conservative and as it is a part of
their creed to oppose tbe party in
power they undoubtedly will cut
some " ice " at the polls next fall.
editor requires a degree of intellectual muscularity  not only beyond
the college professor's reach but also
beyond his comprehension. A good
editor must have tbe casuistic skill
of a Huxley, the rippling humor of
a Johnnie Ray, the abysmal learning of a Virchow, the eloquence of
a Webster, and the powerful sweep
and whoop of a Gladstone.     He
must read write and speak every
ancient and modern language, with
all the dialects thereof.    He must
understand    politics,    archaeology
and plain sewing.   ~He must be gentle enough to judge a triolet and
strong enough to balance a footstick
on his nose.    He must know every
human  being worth knowing from
Tadmor iu the wilderness to the
hills of  Yubadam.      He must be
sober,   patient  and beautiful.    He
must wear good clothes, shavedaily
and love children.
wrongs justly complained of by
Manitoba Liberals remain unredressed." Evidently the Free Press
and the Star are in the same boat,
each having unredressed grievances
of the people to champion and each
forced to defend its action by the
only honorable course open : Continue in the good work and let the
ballots do the rest.

In England the problem of Sunday labor is receiving serious consideration. The House of Lords
has recently passed the Weekly
Rest Day Bill which provides for
every workingman a Sunday rest
from toil. By this law greedy corporations and individuals would be
obiiged to " rest up." Incessant
work is even more dangerous to the
physical and moral existence of
man than none at all.

It was to prevent pollution of the

the government. So far, Princeton enjoys the reputation of being
cleanly and free from any endemic
disease. It would be false economy
on the part of citizens to withhold

would be false justice to permit any
evasion of the law by those who
are perfectly able to pay. for the
necessary scavenging.

loftiest patriotism comes only from

The manner in which the Dominion telephone line has been built

permit a government-owned utiugl
to be run any old way so far as reports and receipts are concerned,
and to use the line as a means of
" getting even" with anyone who
happens to incur the ill will of those
in control of it, would be an unanswerable argument against government ownership and have a tendency to breed corruption of the.

.■some people are so "hungry for 'dough"
that they cannot rest Sunday or Monday.
Every tub rests on its own bottom: the
jjreacber cannot "make good" for his
flock.
Girls want a beau, so that the other
girl won't get him.
Laziness and sickness, different terms

Our legislatures   are mere schools of

Politics is a game, so they say who
"Carry a card up the sleeve.
Put corrupt men in parliament and parliament will rob the people that they
may be steeped and pickled in corruption—blinded to all shame.

PEOPLE WILL TALK.
[Continued from last week.]
If jou belong to the   Board  of  Trade
don't think to escape,
For   they'll criticize  you and sneer at
your fine shape,
They say your long-standing debts yon 1
should not overlook
Before you join a crowd that won't "wash
hands" like a cook.
But people will talk.
Now, the ball team looks shabby, but it
plays with care,
Princeton   don't   mind   it,   as you are
.surely aware,
Uniforms cost    money:    Well !   what's
the use, (
An  unsupported   team   will   go   to the?
deuce.
So people will talk.
And then  if you show the least public
spirit or boldness of heart,
With a  slight    determination   to   take J
your own part,
They  will call you conceited, vain and
an upstart, ,
But be kind, stick to the truth and run j
your own cart. ■ j
For people will talk.
Continued in next week's Star. '
