LAND FOR SETTLERS
IS FREE-CREMATE
It THE DEAD
(Staff Correspondence of Star)
Victoria, Feb. 17.—Members of tbe
provincial legislature were regal .d on
Tuesday with two very eloquent addresses
delivered by Hon. W. R. Ross, minister
of lands, in connection with the presentation of the respective bills regarding the
inclusion of additional territory in the
Strathcona park, and also for the reservation of 882 acres in the vicinity of Mt.
Robson, which is to be utilized as the
newest playground for- British Columbians.
The bill provides for an extension of
Strathcona park amounting to 204 sq.
miles, bringing up the total area to 704
sq. miles. Mr. Ross explained that the
high altitude of Mt. Robson park unfitted it for agricultural use, but that resources in the form of marble quarries
and other mineral wealth had been discovered within its boundaries and would
be utilized as soon as it was feasible to do
so. His description of the scenic beau
ties bespoke familiarity and appreciation
of the marvels wrought by nature in this
spot, so far removed from civilization,
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., has presided
over the activities of the private bills
committee in the absence of the chairman, E. Miller, M.P.pN
Echoes of the coal miners' strike at
Cumberland reverberated through the
house on Wednesday in a long speech by
the opposition leader, Parker Williams,
M.P.P., who sought to introduce a reso
lutton calling fot a committee to investigate the issues at variance between the
Canadian Collieries [Dunsmuir Ltd] and
the employees of the company, now
striking Tracing the origin of the
strike, as he alleged, to discrimination on
the part of the company against two men
who were employed on a gas committee
in No. 2 Extension rnine, Mr. Williams
cited some ancient history. He said the
company had discharged one of the members of this gas committee outright, and
the other would doubtless have been dis
charged, had not the strike occurred.
It behooved Premier Sir Richard McBride, in- his capacity as minister of mines
to deny the sofU impeachment alleged by
the member from Newcastle that .the
government was in any way responsible,
or had it in their power to terminate the
strike.
Sir Richard pointed out that in view of
the very large investment which the Canadian Collieries had at Cumberland and
Extension and because of the fact that
the company had already lost over half a
million dollars as the result of the strike
it was extremely unlikely that they should
indulge in petty discrimination or spite
against two minor employees of the mine
when by so doing they would invite further loss. He could also state positively
that the company were willing to take
back the men at any time providing the
International ^Iine Workers, a union
with headquarters at Indianapolis, were
not recognized as controlling their action
in the matter. Mr. Williams' resolution
was defeated by a vote of 35 to 2.
The carrying of air guns by the rising
generation is forbidden in the Offensive
Weapons bill fathered by the attorney-
general, Hon. Mr. Bowser. It seems that
these weapons are dangerous to sight
when in careless hands. Hence the
clause.
The negligence of the clergy and medical professions in registering vital statistics was commented upon caustically bj
the hon. the provincial secretary on
Thursday. Citing one particular instance
of neglect which had been brought to
his attention hon. Dr. Young related an
instance where a well known clergyman
brought in the accumulated births, deaths
and marriages which had occurred in his
parish during the past 21 years. The
clergy and 'he medical professions he
dec ared should realize, or be made to
realize the importance of registering
these s atistlcs to ensure the legitimacy
of children or to protect the rights of
property, He intended to prosecute to
the full extent of the law any future case
of neglect coming to his knowledge.
Hon, Dr. Young introduced a measure
to validate the burning of human remains, known as the 'Cremation Act.'
The minister of education recommends
the Act as a sanitary and scientific means
of disposing of the dead.
The Land Act has been amended by
the Hon. W. R. Ross and after March 31,
proximo, preemptors may take land on
payment of $2 for the record and $10 as
crown grant fee. The land and the cost
of survey are given without charge. After occupation for three years and making permanent improvements to the value
of $5 per acre, including the clearing and
bringing under cultivation of at least
five acres, the applicant shall be entitled
to receive a certificate of improvement
under Form No. 4. It is further enacted
that all persons in arrears under any
former Act or this Act shall upon due
notice in the official Gazette pay same to
the minister or forfeit all right and such
money as shall have been paid. All minerals, oil and natural gis are reserved to
the crown. The acreage taken will be
regulated by the lieutenant-governor in
council.
Neil Thompson is selling his household
effects preparatory to removing to Riverside, Wash , where he will embark in the
blacksmith business. Both Mr. and Mrs,
Thompson will be missed in social, fraternal and athletic circles and their departure will be regretted by a host of
friends.
BIG MINING CAPITAL
C0MING==PR0FITS
•   ARE HUGE
The development of Leadville mining
camp and the importance attaching to it
through the investment of capital have
made it imperative that wagon transportation should be afforded those operating
in that camp. The Princeton conservative association and the board of trade'
have endorsed the proposal for a road and
it will in all likelihood be built this summer by the department of public works.
Johnnie Carlson and Andy Jensen have
a group of twenty mineral claims near
the Ross mining property, Leadville.
W.H.Taylor, representing Patsy Clark,
the Montana millionaire mining man, is
iu Princeton. He has acquired some in
terest in mineral claims at Leadville and
will, no doubt, consider legitimate-propositions in any camp. Mr. Taylor will
bring his family here and make business
excursions to camps as required.
During the last six months of 1912
the Granby yielded profits amounting to
$796,054. The company closed the year
with a balance* of cash and copper on
hand of $1,095,575. >^||fj
The purchase of Voigt camp by the
B.C. Copper Co. has been advanced to a
stage where both parties to the deal are
no longer iu doubt as to the issue. The
formalities of closing the transaction are
now progressing.
LOCAL AND GENEBAL.
King & Gibson have removed their
store to the Naish block, Bridge street,
formerly occupied bv D. M. French.
They will be pleased to show their customers builders' hardware and supplies
in connection with the building trade.
Rev. T. A. Osborne and family leave
for England in the early summer, having
had urgent invitations to revisit the old
land and probably remain. Frontier religious work has many drawbacks and is
often discouraging. Good efficient men
do not remain on missionary outposts, always being called to more appreciative
fields. Mr. Osborne has' made man v|
friends and is held in very high regard
by brethren of local orders.
Auditor Walker of the P. Burns Co. Ld,
was in town yesterday.
The Picture Show is well patronized
aBd all are pleased with the programs,
.vhich include high class drama.
Geo. Barman of Conconully, Wash.,
was in town this week and likes the prospects so well that he will locate with his
family.
Rev. Mark Jukes will  preach his fare
well sermon in the church of England
next Snnday, to which all are cordially
invited. Mr. Jukes expects to leave on
Monday for his home in Vancouver. *He
has faithfully labored among his flock
for the past nine months, not always with
the encouragement he deserved, yet persistently and patiently preaching the
Word. Mr. Jukes ■ takes with him high
respect and good wishes of the community.
RAILWAY POINTS.
The Great Northern railway company
binds itself to build and complete the.
line from Oroville to Wenatchee by December 31st, this year. This will bring
Princeton nearer to the coast than it has
ever been, saving, probably two or three
hundred miles.
Tracklaying has reached Tonasket on
the Wenatchee branch of the G N.
With only two steam shovels at work
and the differences between the V.,V. &
E. and Kettle Valley companies still
unsettled, it is rather hopeless that
either road will be completed within the
time announced so boastingly last fall.
Jim Hill is in the troglodyte class when
quick action is required and TomShaugh-
uessy resembles a lychnobyte, sleeping
when he ought to be working. Wake
up ! Wake up !
HOCKEY IS 'THE' GAME.
Still another victoiy was added to the
triumphal spring won by theJ.rince.on *^^(rj
hockey club and the match played last
Friday is probably the culmination of
the season's sport. A lsrge crowd witnessed the game and the enthusiasm was
catching. The ice was slow and the
game disappointing as a sp.ctacular attraction, it/spite of which there was brilliant play in spots?** Carmichael and
Armstrong^rfor Keremeos redeemed the
game from lassitude or inertia our own
players giving particular attention to the
rules and the opportunity afforded for
practise on 'hot,' slush ice. Hockey is
our national winter game and as such is
without a peer in interest and excitement,
besides, it generates that^spirit of friendly
rivalry which characterizes true sportsmen. Next winter should see a hockey
league formed in the Similkameeu district. Score: 2-0. Followiug is the
lineup:

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
February 21, 1913
THE SIMILKAMEEN STAR
"   (J.n. WRIGHT)
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY
At PRINCETON, B.C., by
Mere reference must suffice today
in reply to our esteemed cotem., the
Hedley    Gazette,    which  scarcely
accords Star justice in its political,
humorous,    philosophic,   economic
and scientific editorial of last week.
Technically  and  from an ex parte
viewpoint the Gazette's defense of
the Hedley Gold Mines Co. is sane
and safe  in ,its own behalf, but the
great principle involved in absentee
ownership, whereby   none   of   the
profits  are returned  or invested in
enterprise  that would help Hedlay
and district, is entirely lost sight of.
Absentee landhogs made  one little
island ' the most distressed country
that ever you   did see.'    What has
become of the   land   granted to the
preceding    company,   now   owned,
we believe,  by the   H.G.M. Co. ?
Before the Gazette was, Star urged
the government   to   grant this land
for smelter and other industrial purposes.    If this   fine  soil were held
by honest settlers it would  support
more  than   foreign fungi, cacti and
rattlesnakes   and   be   a   blessing to
Hedley and district.    The question
of absentee  ownership  with   a dc-
nothing policy   that  'bleeds white'
is one   which  Star  intends forcing
on the Dominion and Imperial governments.    Akin to this question is
the enormous per capita tax  from
unions  and fraternal orders, 'bleeding  white'   by  going  to a foreign
country never to return.    Will Gazette  favor protection  that benefits
all,   instead   of    that    corrupting,
mushy stuff which centralizeswealth
and   limits trade  with   high tariff.
Yes,   or   no,   Gazette,  without further argument.

ThLii     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
The annual ball given by the Rebekah
lodge last Friday night was.one ot the
best ever held in the 'old town.' The
hall was comfortably filled with willing
waltzers who neither wearied nor halted
-to the inspiring strains of music from
^/'rof. Legg's orchestra. The Rebekah
ladies and gentlemen may well be congratulated for the success of the function.
Guests from Coalmont, Keremeos, Hedley, Tulameen and Granite creek were in
attendance.
The spring-poet is due to arrive—crows
are here.
P. Burns & Co. and Len Huston have
sort of sandwiched the Star between two
ice houses containing many tons of solid
aqua pura. The 'devil' thinka that he
has a good chance of keeping cool dur.
ing next dog davs and will improve the
opportunity to reduce the temperature of
his tinpanum while grinding out heavy
editorial on the railway delay.
Guthrie & Co , V.,V. & E. contractors,
have secured the services of Dr. McCaffrey for their employees and will seud
patients to Princeton general hospital.
Miss Nora Lyall was a visitor from
Hedley recently.
Frank Chitty, formerly lightning press
operator and compositor on the Star, has
started a new paper in Molson, Wash.,
making two that he has begun in that
town during past "six months. Frank is
hard to beat/when it comes to'startin*
somethin' and may he win at the finish.
It is reported that Welldo townsite will
be put on the market in the early summer. It contains some very attractive
acreage and its famed soup spring has
caused considerable local comment.
