Several Recommendations by
Executive of the Board
of Trade.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., spent some
three days last week iu Princeton district
in iking final arrangements for the various road improvements. While he could
not promise any change in the grade at
the 'rock slide' west of Princeton owing
to the V.,V. & E. line requiring all the
space around the bluff, yet he would try
to have the railway line modified so ao,
if possible, to make room for the trunk
r .ad.
The road from bridge to bridge through
Princeton will be improved and proper
access to the court house given with, pro
bably, a fence and bettered grounds to
that structure. A gold commissionership
has been promised in connectiou with the
mining recorder's office and Mr. Shatfurd
will endeavor to have a. sub-agency of
the land department established here for
the information and guidance of land
seekers and settlers. All these matters
with provision for high school exams,
here, were brought to his attention by
members of the executive of the board
of trade, which body will, at his suggestion, keep him informed of requirements
coming wiihin its scope.
A petition to have a bridge at Ashnola
to connect Copper Mountain with the
trunk road was largely signed and for
'warded to Mr. Shatford at Penti.ton.
When built this bridge will be found a
great convenience.
Mr. Shatford leaves Penticton shortly
for New York to undergo special surgical
treatment, by which his many friends
here will wish him complete recovery.
"SAP'S RUNNING."
Some clippings, taken from The Globe
of the past few days, would iudicate that
Sap Season.is on in Canada once more—
with every indication of a good strong
run. Of course, caution is desirable during Sap Season, as at all other times of
the year, and it might be foolish to give
a contract for a new barn because sap is
running again. It would be more foolish,
however, to fail to have on hand a good
supply of of spiles and buckets and ket
ties. C&mmon sense suggests that every
man zhould do his part to make sure of
his own share of the sugar. He owec it
to his country, his family, himself.
If it bt true that Canada has begun an
other era of commercial and industrial
development, every business man should
see to it ihat his affairs are shaped to
make the most of the opportunities.
In these preparations " Publicity"
must play an important part. It does in
the affairs of practically every well-regulated enterprise today as the kettle is of
the sugar-maker's plant, The world's
great industrial successes demonsttate its
effectiveness beyond the need of argument.
Theie are scheuies and devices without
number offered today under the guise of
" Publicity " The presence of the spurious only proves the existence of the
genuine, and throughout the world today
the one outstanding and unrivalled medium for reaching the people is the
Daily Press.
For over sixty five yeais The Globe
has been the leader in the journalism of
the Dominion. If at all interested—in
this sap question—drop us a line.

MINING NEWS
PLANT FRUIT TREES.
Dr Westwood, of Coleman, Alb., is
having some 600 apple trees of the Wagner and Jonathan varieties planted on
his ranch about a 1000 yards from Bridge
Street, on the river bottom. The trees
came from Burrell's nursery, Grand
Forks, and were in prime condition, a
state quite opposite to the imported article. The work of planting, fencing and
management of the embryo orchard is
(intrusted to J. Nathan, who, with his
family will reside here.
Hugh Hunter and H. Thomas are also
planting a lot of fruit trees this spring,
and altogether there is every prospect of
a large orchard acreage here in a few
years. 	
TOOK AN OATH
No one would ever suspect Col. Stevenson of disloyalty but as he has some
mineral claims on Uncle Sam's side of
the 49th parallel the following telegram
will explain his recent action in becom
ing a citizen of the U. S.:
" North) Yamma* Wash., April 12.—
Robert mx^pnso^r/ aaefT^o, one of the
earliest Mj^neers o^this valley, having
passed through ifere 40 years ago. has
just declared bis intention to become a
citizen of the United States before Clerk
Edward E. Cleaver of the federal court
here. He gives his residence as Van-
cauver, and renounces his allegiance to
Britain, but he had been in this country
as much as in Canada during all his residence in this western country."
Dr. Whillans of Hedley was in town
Monday on a professional visit.
Gerow & Co. have put in some massive
cribbing along the Similkameen river to
prevent erosion of the banks. The job
is a particular one and the right men are

Review Shows Industry in Progressive
State Now*
Gold Dredging on Fraser River
May yet be Source of
Great Wealth.
In London the directors of the Le Roi
mine at Rossland, will raise $300,000 to
further develop that mine. A shaft will
be sunk 2,650 feet.
• In 1907 the profits from precious metals
exceeded all dividsnds paid by all banks
in the United States. The profits from
copper mines exceeded all dividends from
all railroa Is in the United States. Sixty-
five per cent, of the carrying business of
the nation originated from arises. Can
the enemy of the industry answer this?
Arizon'*? copper production for February of this year is estimated at 26.500,000
pounds, which is at the rate of 318,000,-
000 pounds a year. The fact, assuming it
to be such, is an interesting one, as it
makes Arizona an easy first on the list of
copper producing regions—not alone of
the continent, but of the world. The
chief contributors to the February output were : Copper Queen, with 9,150,000
pounds ; Calumet and Arizona, 4,000,000,
and the United Terde, with over 3,000,-
000 pounds. The remainder came from
copper mines over the Territory.
The mines at Middlesboro are shipping
more coal than ever at the present time.
April promises to be the record month in
the history of the company's operations.
From the 1st to the 6th, inclusive, 103
cars were pulled out of the collieries. At
this rata the total shipments for April
would amount to approximately 16,000
tons. During February and March something over 18,000 tons ware billed out of
the local yards.—Nicola Herald.
A 36-ounce gold nugget, valued at $600,
and found in the Peace river district now
lies in the vault of the geological survey
at Ottawa.
The Virginia Dredging Co., which
has a 15 mile lease extending from a
point above Yale to Hope, on the Fraser,
will resume operations soon.
5,000 FACTS ABOUT CANADA.
The public will welcome the 1909 revised edition of this valuable booklet,
which has been hapily described as a
tabloid encyclopedia of Canada. It is
unique and clever in its arrangement as
workedout by its compiler, Mr. Frank
Yeigh, of Toronto, the well known writer
and lecturer.     30,000 copies   have   al
ready been sold. The resources, wealth
and business of the country are given in
a concrete form—a fact in a sentence.
Mr. Hamar Greenwood, M. P. for York,
England, says : " It is an eye-opener to
even a keen Canadian like myself." A
coppy may be had for 25 cents from the
Canadian Facts Publishing Co., 667 Spa-
dina Ave., Toronto.
TWO ERRORS.
It seems almost needless to correct such'
a palpable' error as was made in last
week's Star, a typographical mistake
making copper glance 85 p.c , whereas its
composition, as any mining man knows,
is sulphur, 20,2, and copper, 79.8.
Also, in the Star of April 7 another
error, quite excusable in typography, in
which the fixed carbon of Princeton coal
is made to read '6o' instead of 50. The
analyses of the coal run from 49 to 54 in
fixed carbon and from 3 to 8 in ash, which
makes it a veo* desirable fuel for domestic use, besides, it has those smokeless
and gasless qualities, low in ash, which
make it a superior coal.
I.O.O.F. ANNIVERSARY.
Special anniversary services commetn-
morating the foundation of the Inddpen-
dendent Order of Oddfellows will be held
throughout the world next Sunday for
the 88th time. Princeton/Lodge, No. 52,

SPURIOUS LOYALTY.
It is quite evident from the tone
of some of the ultra Tory papers
that the question of presenting a
battleship or its equivalent in money
to Great Britain is one of political
expediency rather than true loyalty.
They do not argue from sincere and
honest motives. This is made plain
.by the invariable aspersion flung
at the Premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
and the implied taunt that Liberals
as a party are not as loyal as Conservatives. The Premier of Canada is the last man in the world to
whom the slightest accusation of
disloyalty could truthfully apply.
Look at his record. During his
premiership he has done more
than any predecessor to cement the
empire into a compact whole. His
Imperial preference tariff, cable and
All-Red projects, proposed two-
cent postage within the empire as
well as his personal devotion to and
following of Britain's foremost
statesmen, his well known love of
British institutions and traditions,
his flattering welcomes from public
bodies in Britain arid the honors
conferred on him by his sovereign;
all these and more surely establish
his loyalty on an unshakable foundation..
In face of these facts one newspaper states that he is not to be
trusted nor believed. In one column it denounces Sir Wilfrid for
waiting on public sentiment to back
him in sending troops to South
Africa, in another column it says
that public sentiment must be behind any law to make it effective.
The animus so very evident in this
writer is but a sample of the yelping critics of Sir Wilfrid and the
Liberal Government and to save
him and his paper further shame
and ignominy the name is reserved
for the present. To attempt to besmirch the character of the Premier by imputations of traitorism
is a species of Black Hand journalism that ought to be rare in any
civilized country.
notice  would  have  been  taken of
the Gazette but for the opportunity
it affords to make  a remark or two
about  prigs    in journalism.    Nothing tickles the vanity of this class
more than an adulatory skit or mere
mention  of   the  newspaper    they
represent.    The  capable  and  true
journalist  is  not  concerned about
the credit  of his  articles.    He has
much  satisfaction   in  seeing  them
coveted     and    purloined—genuine
indications of their worth—for his
aim is to have them cover as wide a
field as possible, thus accomplishing
the greater  good.     Self is  eliminated from every sentence, the public good is his only ambition.    No
article of any  literary  or  intrinsic
merit, or communication or writing
either suggested   or  inspired,   has
ever  appeared  in   the Star  during
its  present   management,   without
giving due credit for same—it does
not   use  another's  brains  without
due    acknowledgment.      But  Star
articles  without  number have appeared in other papers, particularly
at the coast, without a hint of their
origin.    Indeed, it is not infrequent
they  are   disguised   as  dispatches
with a date  line.     No objection is
made to copying Star articles without  giving credit.    One condition,
however, is respectfully  urged and
that is,   when convenient, to insert
the word   " Princeton " somewhere
in the article.    If the  Star is lacking in   honor, as   the Gazette say?,
it is probably due to   tbe   wounded
pride of our cotera. rather than any
default in journalistic ethics on our
part.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Squirming, kicking and frothing
Castro, or 'Castor Oil,' as he is now
dubbed, has been kicked out of
every country and soon will have
no resting place for the sole of his
foot. As a duty to humanity the
Star will continue to flail 'Oil' until
he restores at least two-thirds of
the $60,000,000 be stole.
A MATTER OF HONOR.
The Grand Forks Gazette is a
little testy in its remarks that the
Star had appropriated its articles
on 'Dry:Farming' without giving
due credit. Had the Gazette man
read  every   issue  of the  Star,   as
Some decided!}' torrid debate has
been going on in the Commons of
late, strong language and vituperation prevailing to such an extent
as to make the chamber a perfect
pandemonium. It would pay the
government to have some of those
bollicose members attend a meeting
of the Princeton Board of Trade
as an object lesson for them in the
etiquette of discussion and the quick
and businesslike dispatch of the
multitudinous matters brought before it.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
EXPOSITION NOTES.
Seattle, Wash., April 17.—One of the
revelations of the past month in the development of the Alaska-Yukon Pacific
Exposition has been the sudden appearance of two buildings, one of them
anionfi the largest on the grounds, near
the Music Pavilion on the left side of
Rainier Vista at the foot of the Court of
Honor. The tlvo structures seemed to
arise as if by magic, and a few days after
they were first observed, theentire framework was in place and scores of workmen were bu«y with exterior and inter
icr finishing. The workers on the exposition grounds, who had supposed that
all of the large buildings were already
constructed, hastened to enquire about
the new buildings and learned that they
are the Canadian Government building,
and the Grand Trunk Railway  building.
The Grand Tiunk building, next the
Canadian structule is a smaller affair,
but very attractive in design, and will
exploit the wonderful region which this
railroad is opening m the Dominion.

PHOENIX-GBEENWOOD.
Big Tnnnel to Usite Cities and Tap
Vast Mineral Deposits.
The ratepayers of Greerigood recently
voted- $50,000 towards the big tunnel
that will tap the mineral belt between
Greenwood and Phoenix at a depth of
about 2,000 feet. The following from
the Phoenix Pioneer regarding this big
tunnel will be read with interest in this
section as a similar tunnel is proposed to
tap Copper mountain:
" The construction of the big Greenwood-Phoenix tramway has already commenced. The machinery and plant is
already on the ground and operationi begun, The plant formerly used at the
Crescent mine has been pressed into service, and current from the Bonnington
Falls electric company will supply
power. A syndicate of New York and
Chicago capitalists have underwritten
the amoent required to construct the
bore and results should soon be obtained.
The undertaking is one that involves
no great difficulties and the ground" is
proven, so that those here who are conversant with the properties along the
route of the bore or tunnel h»ve little
doubt of its success. The belt or min
er lized zone that the bore crosscuts is
one that has had considerable work done
on it in a more or less crude and expensive way, yet ir has produced over $900,
000.
The citizens of Greenwood have had a
year to consider the feasibilitv and probable success of the bore, and their unanimous endorsation of the project will undoubtedly carry one who is not familiar
with the camp.
The exploring at the Greenwood and
Phoenix camps to the depth of over 2,000
feet will start deep mining in the
Boundry district and open up immense
possibilities for mining and will undoubtedly  attract the attention  of  the

mining world.   The tunnel wili   reach
the number one vein of the Strathmore
mine, from which very rich ore has been
shipped, it eight hundred feet,   and will
crosscut  seventeen   other   veins   in the
first section of the bore, which is six
thousand feet.   These veins have been
oroven in   depth   from   100 to 600 feet.
Some eight tnousand  tons have    been
shipped from  this  belt   aud   averaged 1
over $100.    In  the  past,  owing  to the
crude and small  way they have   been
operating, the mining has been expensive, costing over $40 per ton, and freight
A and smelting charges have averaged $15
per ton.
The   company   with   a    consolidation
of mining proprrties,  and a deep tunnel
-to handle  and   mine  the ore, can easily
reduce the cost of mining to  $10  per ton
' and the cost of freight and  smelting can
be reduced to  $7   or $8  a ton.    In time
the   company   will   probably   have suf
ficient tonnage to  build its own smelter,
i. A lead smelter  at  Greenwood   for high-
grade ores would get a great deal of cus
torn or and stimulate the development of
gold and silver mining all over the Boundry country.
The tunnel will be built large enough
to carry ten ihousand tons per da> , and
beyond the first section will carry ore on
a tonnage and freight basis. It will not
. only be a tunnel but a iramway also, for
the carrying of ores from the difierenl
mines contiguous to the route of the
bore."
