Once used always used : Princeton coal.
LKAMttN
After clouds, sunshine; after storm, calm; after hope, fruition.
Copper has regained its normal position among metals and is certain of continuous demand—Princeton is the center of a great copper
bearing district and the mining industry will focus here—Coal, iron, copper, lead, zinc, silver, gold and platinum among the products.

MINES AND MINING
Copper   Strong  and Tending
Upward  Adds Hope
For Future.
Dominion Geologist Selecting Points
of Interest to be Visited by
Notable Men.
Copper, 16.25.
Fred Keffer, mining engineer for the
B.C. Copper Co , was in town Friday,
having arrived from Voigt camp, where
development of the mineral there is
being carried out vigorously. Everything is moving satisfactorily in the
eamp and a diamond drill now installed
is expected to reveal ore bodies at depth.
A payment in satisfaction of bond terms
has been recently made, from which it
may be inferred that Voigt camp is a permanent, producing mine. Mr. Keffer
went to Coalmont on Saturday.
Hugh McRae was in town from Kennedy mountain on Thursday and reports
progress on the Fraser group Three
tunnels and an open cut have been made
and theie is good ore in sight. The
interprovincial road and railway construction to Ashnola will help to solve
the problem of transportation for the
Fraser group and other mineral properties. Mr. McRae and brothers have done
a lot of development work and with the
coming of a smelter will, no doubt, make
good.
J. F. Coats, mining engineer for the
Princeton Collieries Co., arrived yester
day from Spokane and will do some as
sessment work.
Charles Camsell, Dominion geologist,
and his assistant, B Rose, graduate of
Vale, arrived in town yesterday on a
special mission from the Dominion government to prepare a tour for members
pf the International Congress of Geologists who will convene at Toronto next
year. About 2000 geologists will attend
from all parts of the world and they will
be shown all over Canada in parties conducted by those familiar with their respective districts. Mr Camsell will cori-
drfct a party through the Similkameen,
among whom will be J. F. Kemp author
of treatise on Tulameen platinum, and
W. Lindgren, head of the Economic
branch of the U. S Survey. In Princeton and district the party will be shown
typical coal, ore and placer deposits, in
eluding platinum gravels and diamond
bearing chromite on Olivine mountain,
upper Tulameen. Mr. Camsell will cover
the district between Midway and Vancouver, selecting points of interest and
mapping route for the visiting geologists
He goes from Princeton to Coalmont,
Tulameen, Merritt, and other points, re
turning to visit Copper mountain and
other camps, finally winding up the season at Lillooet. Mr. Camsell is la "popular and efficient public official, ever ready
to impart or receive information.
The British Columbia Department of
Mines is .continually making efforts to
provide for the safety of coal miners.
Two rescue training stations will be established at Nanaimo and Fernie.
RAILWAY POINTS.
D. J. Hall, rightofway agent for the
V.,V & E., left for Seattle last Thursday, having completed purchases of land
owned by private parlies with satisfaction to all concerned. The line is all
ready for the contractors from Hope to
Coalmont.
Twohy Bros, have a 30 mile contract
on the Kettle Valley from the Merritt
end toward Princeton.
Chief Engineer Kennedy is reported
10 have ordered construction to begin in
Coquihalla pass on the V ,V. & E.
W. A. McLean of H°dley has a contract for clearing and grading on the V.
V. & E. beyond Coalmont.
ENGLISH RANCHERS TUMBLING
^1/ INTO TULAMEEN.'
Editor Star—Sir: Au article appeared in the Coalmont Courier, BljflJtftd
on wrapping paper, dated May 6th, the
title or which is 'English Ranchers
Tumbling into the Tulameen.' I think
the scurrilous writer of that libel on Englishmen is very liable to do the John the
Baptist stunt himself and take a forced
dip in the Tulameen river This smudgy
pieceot wrapping paper howls about the
'haw-haw' variety of Englishmen. We
would like the Cur(rier) scribbler, if not
encroaching upon his valuable time, to
give us a list of the different varieties of
Englishmen and designate the breed he
belongs to, and whether he imagines if
he is more than a 'beanless' unit to declare the feelings cf Tulameen residents
regarding these poor Englishmen and
blackmail and exile them, to Victoria
through this wrapping paper of Coalmont. You do credit to yourself and the
community in which you reside, sir, by
ignoring the Coalmont inkslinger but we
must defend ourselves for fear some unsuspecting ones may be deceived.
We in Tulameen and Otter Valley welcome any outsiders regardless of nationality who come in here to spend their
money in developing the natural resour
ces of the country. The Cur tier man
or 'devil' would be much better occupied
in boosttngthe country, instead of knocking any class of settlers, and in this I
can recommend him to follow other Similkameen papers in their bright, newsy
andboostful pages. I understand that a
Mr. Chef with more money than brains is
the guiding star and dictator of the Coal-

RACE TRACK IS A GO
Money Up: Grounds to be Put
in Shape for 1st July by
Big 'Bee/
' Princeton Racing & Athletic Association' is Name Adopted for
New Organization.
. A meeting was h Id Monday night in
the court house to hear a report of the
committee appointed to raise money for
the purchase of grounds suitable for race
meetings, sports, celebrations, agricultural exhibitions or any legitimate public
use to which it may be put. The necessary amount to complete the first payment has been raised and the committee
suggested ways and means for putting
the grounds in shape at once for the annual celebration on Dominion Day, ist
July. It was decided to have an old
fashioned 'bee,' inviting the public generally to participate setting apart two
days, next Sunday and Monday, June
2nd and 3rd, for the work which will be
under the direction of a committee
Owing to peculiarities of the statute, the
chairman of the meeting, J. D. Andras,
explained that a name other than the
'Similkameen Agricultura. Association'
adopted at a former meeting, would have
to be changed. On motion the name
'Princeton Racing and Athletic Association' was selected. It is presumed, however, that an agricultural association will
be maintained as an encouragement to
this expanding industry. Oh and after
June 3rd work or material will be accept
ed in payment for stock in the association, affording everyone an opportunity
to help along the good work. A public
meeting to plan for Dominion Day cele
bration was called for Friday night, 31st
instant.
The association is capitalized at $10,000,
divided into 100 shares of jfioo each. In
all probability stock will be offeied to
the public, the proceeds, along with the
usual government grant for agricultural
associations will be used for clearing the
ground and erection of the necessary
grand stand and buildings. The la_d is
situated on the northeast corner of lot
1823, Kamloops division The terms are
25 per cent on signing of subscription
list, 20 per cent on 30th Oct., 1912; 20
■per cent on 30th April, 1913; balance of
35 per cent on call after ist May, 1913.

THE CELEBRATIONS ■
There was a considerable0 exodus of
Princetonians to Coalmont and Ketfimeti.
on Victoria Day. The celebrations at
both places were in keeping with the
patriotic spirit throughout Canada and
serve to commemorate the birthday and
illustrious life of a very dear lady, the
late Queen Victoria. The day was fine
and the little breeze unfurled the glorious flag that has led the world in civilizing and commercial influence, and
prompted the salute of five hundred millions of loyal subjects.
At Coalmont the baseball game loomed
large on the horizon of sport and Capt.
Young with his team of spirited colts
brought back fame and victory to the old
town. The Coalmont team got in spme
pretty work but Princeton would pile up
score upon score until it stdod 14 tc 4
and there it remains until the return
match on Dominion Day. The swag,
$75, helped some.
The tugowar Coalmont v. the Worlds
was won by the home team and all the
sports created keen interest and enjoyment.
The ball in the new and elegant Coalmont hotel was a grand success ; Manager Marcotte leaving nothing undone to
provide comfort and pleasure for his numerous guests. Music for the ball was
furnished by Prof Knight, piccolo ; W.
Garrison, riolin ; Miss E. Lyall; piano ;
Archie Legg, trombone. Knight's orchestra is an irresistible feature and no
ball is complete without it.
At Keremeos a large crowd assembled
from the immediate section,,and as far as
the Boundary and Washington. The
Oroville band was there to enliven the
■occasion and a general good time is reported by the Princeton contingent}
The baseball match was won by the Penticton team, prize, fioo.
J. H. Jackson of Tulatneen has purchased a first class Russell auto which he
has put on the Coalmont-Merritt run.
Charlie Howse is chauffeur, a fact which
spells quick and s .fe transit for passen
gers.
Rev. T. A. Osborne, Methodist minister, has returned from conference at Victoria where he was ordained and is now
fully qualified to perform all the rites required by law, including marriages,
births, &c. Mr. Osborne was very successful in passing his exams., receiving a
very high percentage of the total required. He will be stationed here for
another year.

A SLOW COACH.
How muctTlonger will the Great
Northern continue that layover
nuisance at Oroville ? For the past
two years there has been no end of
inconvenience, expense, lost time
and delayed mail caused by the
ten or twelve hours wasted at the
above town. It is a grievance of
such glaring and provoking qualities that it need only be mentioned
to be denounced. Repeated efforts
by public bodies coupled with strong
denunciation from all travellers fail
to impress the railway authorities
with the necessity for remedy. No
matter what loss the public suffer
the railway must not lose a single
opportunity to skimp its service in
its greed for gain.    No reasonable
argument can be put up to justify
this gross abuse of public rights.
The railway company roars and
charges heavy demurrage for delays on the part of its customers
but it is perfectly stolid and indifferent when asked to remedy any
cause of complaint by the public.
Having failed to obtain redress for
the abominable stopover at Oroville
it is up to the people to send a
strong remonstrance to the railway
commission of Canada. This maj'
be done by a well signed petition
or by resolutions adopted at public
meetings. The Similkameen district has suffered enough from dilatory construction of the V.,V. &
E_ without these aggravating hindrances to progress. Railroad management that makes passengers stop
and take a sleep in some wayside
tavern before ending a journey of
only a few miles at farthest is both
antique and unique and worthy of
some old granny. Hello ! Jim.
Wake up ! !
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
' Conservation § is the name of a
4-page publication issued by the
Commission of Conservation, Ottawa, and is brimful of useful hints
for every man. Send your name
and address.
G. Bernard Shaw  is  having  his
hair pulled by the literati the world
over for his notorious and extravagant criticisms. London is full of
these literary oddities, not a few
having drifted to Canada. Finding
that they cannot gain attention in
the ordinary way they write horrible stuff about persons or even the
Titanic disaster. Any man who
cannot master a craving for notoriety should never write for publication, for he is mentally unsafe and
unsound, an object to be pitied rather than-anathematized.
Now, it is the sandeaters' turn.
As a cure for indigestion sand is
recommended as the finest dope by

SIMILKAMEEN   AGRICULTURAL
ASSOCIATION.
The success, so far, attending the
formation of the Similkameen Agricultural association is encouraging to those
who are interested in the development of
all that pertains to the farm. No thinking person doubts the existence of dormant wealth yet to be realized in agriculture in this district. Horse, cattle, sheep,
hog and poultry raising need the encouragement that this association will afford
ilnd it it accomplished no more than to
give certain emphasis to hese branches
of agriculture its mission- would be
largely fulfilled. 'But the association
aims to cover the whole range of agriculture in its fostering care.
Then,  there  is  the  consideration of a
race track and athletic grounds, necessary for the amusement and attraction of
visitors and the general public. The
young men, and the boys and girls of
every town must have recreation and that
physical exercise which develops brain
and brawn. To do all these, grounds
suitable for- sports and race meetings
must be provided. The opportunity to
secure the requisite accommodation under
the aegis of a live agricultural association
is ripe and with the proposed exhibitions
of farm produce and animals there may
be also exhibitions of speed and agility.
As a speculative investment the forty
acres of land to be purchased at $2400 is
gilt edge.

From First Page.
mont wrapping sheet, if so, it is not the
first time that this same individual has
nosed around for trouble and found it by
offending respectable persons. Instead
of a bright and newsy home made paper
this Coalmont parcel .cover is printed in
some eastern city, maybe at Tim Eaton's,
and shipped to Coalmont as slow freight
—oh, yes, news coming in a freight car
must be uptodate in these electric days.
Haw ! haw! Such news may suit the
slow ones but not the intelligent reader.
' To have and to hold' is a very good
motto. The grouchers are a small side
issue ; you have them in Princeton and
they are saying 'sic 'em' to the Cur-rier
man. Neither abuse of Englishmen nor
vulgar reference by Canadian girl will
do any good. We want newspapers to
build up with loqal news and not fill up
with back east 'boiler plate' or slop about
that 'most wonderful organization the
mounted police.' Local news is always
interesting and it need not be such twaddle as 'Mr. Soandso took a glass of beer
when in Coalmont' or the editor 'has an
ossified liver,' etc.
When Mr. Duncan, who is away at
present and who represents the B.C.
Southern Lands and Mines, was here he
had onlv good to say for the treatment
and accommodation he received while
in Tulameen. 'These blooming Englishmen' that are so painful to the Canadian girl are spending good money in
this country andJj^JtfcTavishwillhave
much better use for his wrapping paper
when the country is settledcy them.

BUMPER CROP FOR OKANAGAN
R. M. Winslow, \the provincial horticulturist, brings baclf to Victoria a'glow-
mg account of the prospects of the
Okanagan district, where he has been attending the British Columbia fruit
growers' conference. The Okanagan is
expecting a bumper crop of vegetables
and fruit. He says little winter injury
has been done ind nearly every peach
tree is said to have had a good crop,
while at Peachland apricots are already
one inch long. Cherries are setting.
Many of the trees should yield an estimate of a quarter of a ton. Apples and
peaches will need, considerable thinning
to retain good sized fruit. There is an
enormous increase in the acreage of land
under potatoes, onions and tomatoes, arid
the present estimate is that the crop 3 _eld
of this district will be double that of last
year. The Canadian Pacific railway has
• placed a contract for 700 tons of potatoes
for their dining car, no tuber to be over
one and a half or under one pound.
Special seed has been set for this crop,
which will be grown in the Okanagan.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
There are persons so stingv that they
will not tell a joke at their own expense.
When a general accusation is made
without naming any person it is only the
guilty ones who whine and kick and feel
hurt. It is a decoy employed by dttec-
tives to obtain clues to crookedness and
works out in social circles with good
effect. ' If the cap fits let them wear it'
is a trite and forceful saying ; if not
guilty no attention will be paid to the
'cap.'
Of creeds and doctrines there are
a-plenty : A working religion that saves
and heals is the need of today.
It is much easier for a wife to have her
fortune told than to acquire one through
a negligent husband.
It is impossible to be so level headed
that a hat won't-fit—swellheads are the
■most difficult to size in the whole rarge
of humanity.
In the ideal home love, prayer and
God are there and no matter what storms
may beat upon it the eternal foundations
of faith and hope remain unshaken.
Shallow persons glory in the downfall of anyone and proclaim it in large
headlines, but the limelight will some
day scorch t_eie cruel creatures to a
cinder.

The Town of 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 Coaltront real estate
now while the choice is still good.
Don't let this opportnnity  slip  along  with   the  others   which have got
past you.    Write for our circular and  price list ; a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 5o-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

WITH  INVESTORS
Sell them Princeton Real Estate
Make Money out of Old Earth
'"rfHE 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 mosttowns==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
where of investment in real estate. There is land for everyone if the
other fellow does not gobble more than his share. Remember,* single
tax is coming, and then land values will jump skyward. Princeton is
the center of coal, ore and placer mining. Good grazing and agricultural
land. Beautiful climate, fishing, hunting. Two railroads will afford
transportation. Electric light, waterworks, hospital, etc. Write the
Princeton Coal & Land Co., or better still, come and see for yourself
