KETTLE VALLEY LINE
Construction   is  Certain   and
b& Road for Traffic in
Three Years.     vx"
Branch to Princeton will Help Some
and Secure Large Tonnage
Along Route.
A telegraphic item has been going the
rounds of the press to the effect that con.
struction will begin early in May on the
Kettle Valley line. Construction gangs
are starting from three points, Merritt,
Penticton and Midway. It will be finished iu three years.
That there is going to be great activity
in railroad construction this year is the
conclusion of every observant man. The
old rivalry between the Great Northern
and the C.P.R. is about to receive an
impetus in the contact of interests of tbe
two companies in the Similkameen and
■the route over Hope mountains via Coquihalla Pass. It is quite likely both
roads will work overtime to gain a little
advantage of its rival. •5C-*-»fc-<»-<v /
Princeton has everything to gain from
the construction of the Kettle Valley
line with its branch to this point. Development along this line will disclose
a weaith of mineral and agricultural
resources of vast importance and value.
HIGH CLASS TROUPE.
Eckhardt Company to Play Here—See
Them and Forget Care.
Commencing Wednesday night, March
30th, the splendid Eckhardt company
in an excellent selection of two high class
plays goes to the I.O.O.F. hall, this town
for an engagement of two nights. The
first night's offering will be'Paid In Full,'
and if you fail to see it you will have
missed a wonderful performance of a very
interesting comedy. It is one of the distinguished and immediate successes that>
swept into favor. There is a succession
of psycological surprises, an intense an
dercurrent that keeps one quite apa.it
from the delight in the scorching satire,
the double-edged humor, in the sparkling
lines. Judging from conventional dramatic standards, as is written in the recognized key of Jpure comedy, is one of
the best of modern times. The play will
be beautifully mounted and excellently
acted. The costumes worn by the ladies
of the company are said to be the handsomest ever seen on the stage. The com.
pany comes to Princeton with very highest recommendation from the press of the
Stater and Canada. This attraction is
guaranteed or money most cheerfully refunded. Prices — General Admission
75c. Reserved Seats $i.oo, on sale at
The A. E. Howse Co's. Change of plays
nightly.'A Grass Widow' Thursday night.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
A short but interesting program, to be
given by the school children, Thursday
evening, 24th of March, 8 p m., sharp, in

Come one, come all, and spend a pleasant hour, and help pay the balance of the
$16 due on the organ.—Cose.

MINES AND MINING
Smelter Location at or Near
Princeton would be
Most Central.
Mineral Shows, well on   One-Mile—
Princeton Mining Co. Work
Toward Lead.
About sixteen miles from Princeton on
One—Milc_Creek. wm.' Murray has a
group of six mineral claims on which he
has done considerable prospecting and
development work. Hematite iron, 52
pe cent, constitutes the ore bodyT"TS"
driving a tunnel 112 feet stringers of
galena were struck carrying 19 ozs. of
silver per ton, beside $2.10 in gold and
about $3 in copper. Three leads are dis*,
tinctly traceable through the group.
Associated with tbe hematite are gold
values amounting to $1.65. The claims
are fortunately situated in respect of
proposed transportation, for the surveyed
line of the C.P.R. extends right across
the gronp. A smelter and the inevitable
railwway will do the trick and make this
property a great producer. May it be
so.
Princeton and its immediate-vicinity
have every natural resource for the establishment of a smelter. The fact of
coking coal being mined within a few
miles of Princeton and the unlimited
quantity of ore within a ten-mile radius
of town should be satisfactory to the
most exacting smelter promoter. The
situation for a smelter here is ideal in
regard to handiness, being at the confluence of two rivers and approachable
from various quarters by railway lines.

work since last October, two tunnels
having been driven. About 100 feet is
the distance attained on the lower tunnel, the lead still being an elusive quantity, but whtch may be struck at any
time. Assays from carbonates ou the
dump realized |8t_per_tgn. Steel rails
and a steel car are part of the equipment
and will be used in the shipment of ore
to the Granby smelter. The Princeton
Mining Co's property is undoubtedly a
mine in the literal and actual meaniugof
the word and is very favorably located.
DELIBERATE SUICIDE.
A very sad and deliberate case of suicide causing a shudder of horror to run
through the community, was committed
last week when Nels Johnson destroyed
his owu life. He had been in town about
a week after working the winter at Bear
Creek mines. Returning to the work at
the mine with Thos. Parks, he carried
out his premeditated act by placing ar-1
stick of dynamite under his head in a !
lying posture, lighting the fuse with a_
candle, thus blowing off his head. A
note in his diary disposing of his pro-
petty to relatives and announcing his
coming death showed clearly his intention to end his life. Dr. Lazier, coroner,
held inquest, the verdict of the jury being
suicide, superinduced by alchoholism.
Deceased was well known and had many
friends. Every respect was shown the
deceased, a large number attending the
funeral. A brother from Washington
'was present at the graveside.

Hospital, To Be or Not To Be, which
the People will Decide.
The advertisement on the third page
calling 'a public meeting next Monday
night for the purpose of taking steps to
establish a hospital is, in a literal and
physical sense, a very vital question. No
town of present or prospective importance can afford to be without such an
essential institution as a hospital. In the
modern and scientific treatment of disease,, accidents or any form of sickness,
the hospital is the only place where the
care of patients may be properly Undertaken. Not only is this true, but it is the
duty of man to his fellow and also in self
protection to make proper provision for
the medical treatment of ills to which
humanity is subject. Most encouraging
progress has been made in the initial
stages of the hospital movement. The
Vermilion Forks Co. has donated six lots
in a very suitable place for the building
and Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., has written
very encouragingly regarding government' assistance. The board of trade
having initiated the movement for a hospital and brought it to the stage where
it must receive the approval or rejection
of the people, will heartily assist as far
as its powers permit, if the public
endorse the project. The attendance of
the public at the meeting will indicate
the measure of interest taken, but anyone
unable to attend will please write to Mr.
Marlow, secretary, pro tern, suggesting
or assisting in any way toward the success
of the meeting and the ultimate object to
be obtained.
L-G/MacHafEe, manager of the bank
of^VN.A. at Hedley is leaving that
tfranch for another, as yet unknown, and
will be succeeded by Mr. Hincks, formerly teller at Hedley.

UNIVERSAL EREE TRADE.
It is a s.igq .pfrreturning sanity
that a considerable portion of the
British press and people are now
laugmng at themselves for their
senseless fear of the Germans dur-
-ing the recent elections. The question of a warlike invasion of Britain cannot be'resurrected for future
political purposes with any effect or
influence on the mind of the intelligent voter. The only invasion
that the British Empire need have
any fear of is the commercial one
from Germany. A competitor for
the world's trade, Germany is just
beginning to reach out into the
markets of the i different countries
and in doing' this she has had to
build warships to protect her sea
going commerce.
The real fear of the British is
born out of envy of the German
enterprise which pushes their manufactured goods into every market
and thus narrows the sphere of the
English manufacturer. In religion,
government, christianizing, civilizing-and colonizing effort, the Germans are emulating the British.
German. go,ods are being bought
and sold in England and, no doubt,
some of the most rabid Tory ajiti-
Germanists are at this moment
wearing socks 'made in Germany.'
Business economy before sentiment
or patriotism rules in England as
in the Similkameen or any other
portion of this green earth. It
matters little where, or who makes
the goods, if they are as good and
cheaper than the homemade article,
that settles the question in the
mind of the purchaser.
If the British want to keep out
German goods they must produce
better and cheaper than ^.the., foreigner. To substitute free trade
with tariff reform or high-protective
wall will breed a host of evils. ' See
the great combines, trusts, mergers
and what not that follow in the
train of protection. In the highly
protected United States there are
labor problems as serious as in the
free trade country. Out-of-works
are as plentiful proportionate!}' in
the U. S. as they are in the older
countries. Protection (tariff reform) is not the panacea for many
of the ills and troubles which the
leaders of tariff reform preach. It
opens the door wide to the legislatures for the lobbyist and grafter,
gives an unnatural or fictitious
value to goods   which   the seller is
not slow to appreciate;
The principle of protection is
wrong in that it tends to monoply,
draws the line for the subject as*to
where he shall buy, destroys that
competition from without which is
stimulative of invention, and makes
the rich ri'cherTrad the poor poorer.
Free trade, on the other hand, gives
the fullest liberty to the subject to
buy and sell in the cheapest markets, it decentralizes wealth and
is opposed to combinations, trusts
and monopoly.
If, instead of the insensate agitation for huge navies, statesmen,
publicists and journalists would
divert their efforts toward universal
free trade, something that would
outride the raging seas and defy all
the explosives and expletives of
.thenwar-scarists, would result. It
is the surest and safest way to
demolish international prejudices
and animosities. Ninety per cent,
of the causes ot~war will disappear
before the friendly influence of free
trade. The commingling of the
nations in unimpeded and unrestricted trade is the best safeguard
of peace ; it is illustrated in the
daily life of individuals that business has its friend making side.
Just now there is some difficulty
between the United States and Canada over the tariff between the two
countries, all ; of. which would have
had no -existence but for,the.pqlicy
of protection. I Star hopes to..<eon>
tinue th£ agit'dtion for universal
free trade until the day dawns and
universal peace, jnstea$r of arming
with huge navies, will have,been
proclaimed from 'every legislature
in the land.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
If one thing requires immediate
attention more than another it is
the improvement of streets. It is
doubtful if there was ever a road
way left in its natural condition
and carrying a large amount of
traffic which could sustain as heavy
loads as Vermilion Av. All this
road needs is grading and rounding
up the center, top dressing it with
gravel sufficient to give it firmness
and solidity. It will be necessary
to have this work done in the early
spring to derive any benefit from it
this summer. There are sidewalks
to be built and these can only be
made by assistance from the government.-
The movement toward construction of a hospital in Princeton is
one that will be approved by every
good citizen and resident of the district. Its necessity and its usefulness are so self evident that comment need not be made. Every
man and woman, and even children
may do something toward the hospital. It is one of those institutions that appeals to every charitably disposed person and it is a real
grivilege to give,toward it.

of southwestern British Columbia, and
this source has proved to be the most
productive of all thus far developed on
the North American continent. The area
of chief interest is in the valley of Slate
Creek and along the Tulameen river.'
This property will prove to be an active
competitor with the Russian Ural fields
and Colombia in South America. Platinum, when refined, is worth $35 per oz.
The finding of platinum in place in the
Tulameen and Champion Creek section
is not improbable as the formation indicates good possibilities for the prospector
who will carefully go over the ground.
Placer platinum undoubtedly originates
in this section and is washed into the
rivers.
