 !,   Sixty feet of Coal under Princeton—'Coalopolis.'
Toil is the price of Success; Adversity is the trial of Principle.
Princeton and district present varied opportunities for investment^and that man would, indeed, be hard to please who turned back from
here without finding anything to suit him—Mineral resources practically unlimited—Grazing, farm, garden and orchard valley lands.

Tracklaying is proceeding at a fair rate
on the V., V. & E. The first bridge over
the Similkameen, from Keremeos, will
be ready for train passage on July 4th
Ballasting will begin as ".oon.as ten miles
of track is laid, the assetnl ling of men,
cars, steam shovel and a small village on
wheels being made now for that pur
pose.
Grading is going on at the usual pace
and there is no doubt tliat the contractors will keep welt in advance of the tail
layers.
Contractor Hankinson will shortly
throw a temporary bridge across the Sim-
ilkauieeu, thus delivering dirt in town
for yard and station area. The spur to
the V.F.M. Co's coal mine will be commenced soon.
The Wenatchee branch of the V.,V.

Brewster.
J. J. Hill, prophet and railroad wizard,
says that Canada will have a population
of fifty millions in 1950.
Division Engineer Hale will shortly
remove to Princeton.
The Railway Journal states that the
Hill people will spend $15,000,000 on
construction in the west this year. What
proportion of that sum the V...V. & E.
will receive is not mentioned but it is
estimated that $3,000,000 will be required
to build the link from Princeton to near
Cloverdale.
SOME DIFFICULTIES RUNNING
FRONTIER PAPER.
■ The Star has hitherto referred to the
fact of its columns being mainly devoted
to local news, leaving the news of the
world to filter into the community by
the semi weekly and daily press. To
maintain its prestige as a local paper it-
must be provided with local news. Next
to the advertiser and the paidup subscriber the best supporter jof, the Star
and public spirited person is the one who
gives mining, real estate or ordinary local
items tor publication. The Star must
get its news from others direct as it can
only afford a staff of one and he has to
sweep out, 'eat pie,' wash inky rollers,
answer saucy letters from delinquents,
entertain interviewers and vice versa,
fill the 'editorial chair,' study political
and other kinds of economy, write
something on the most abstruse subjects
of the age, set type, keep right ear to
the ground to catch railway rumblings
and read the Gazette at least three times
to find one measly 2-line item of. news.
Never one derogatory remark nor harsh
criticism of the Star has ever been heard
by the editor, on the contrary some genuine 'bouquetf' have been received from
near and far on the good work it has and
is doing. But the Star is not content
with merely doing well, it wants to do
better, improve.   Reader, will you help?
FINE ORE SAMPLES FOR THE
A Y.P. EXPOSITION.
A splendid ore sample for the A Y.P.
at Seattle has been received from tl
Red Star, owned by -Pouwels & Bouji
ver. It is a little late coming down
owing to the difficult packing over a
r >ugh trail. But its value and size. 95
lbs , will more than compensate the government for any delay in its arrival
This ore runs 26 per cent, in copper, 6
ozs. of silver and $3 gold, per ton. It it.
strongly impregnated with sulphur and
arsenic, and a large quantity of copper
s dphides in solution drains through the
tunnel, jthe commercial value of which
cinnot be fully exploited without rail
transportation In Butte, Montana, and
at the RioTinto mines in Spain the sulphides of copper in solution are utilized
for the conversion of iron into copper bv
immersion. Messrs. Pouwels & Bonni-
ver have done a lot of development work
and have shown the existence of a lead
about 400 feet wide.
Col. Stevenson is also sending fine ore
samples from Summit camp and Five-
Mile. ^Mi
LACKING SOMEWHAT IN FACT
AND REALITY.
A telegram going the rounds of the
daily press says : "James J. Hill has informed Mayor Jamieson of Calgary that
he is 'rushing' the completion of his
'Penticton branch' with the object of
getting a strong foothold on the Rocky
mountain section of Canada, and then be
able to reach out into the prairie provinces. Mr. Hill said the peop'e of western Canada need not be surprised if they
found that he had swooped down into
their territory, as that is his intention."
[As far as people here are aware, there
is no Penticton branch building or contemplated ; there is no rushing of construction anywhere, and as for Uncle
Jim swooping down, that is probably a
joke. The main line of the V.,V. & E.
is building to Princeton and will^cdn-
tinue to build to the coast—that is all
there is 'to it.'—Ed.]
Wm. Britton arrived from Seattle recently, whither he went as a witness in a
legal case. He speaks well of the A.Y.P.
as a whole. The mineral section was not
open to the public and would be delayed
for some days owing to the large number
of samples. The Princeton samples had
arrived.
TWO TRAINS HELD UP

Scene of Double

hey say lightning never strikes twice
the same place. It is different with
train robbers. Uucks, on the C.P.R., is
again the scene of a train holdup, two,
in fact.
Constable Hewat received very meagre
instructions from his chief that a holdup
had taken place at Ducks on Monday
night about 11 o'clock. .^.W
', It appears that two trains, either cross
iug or a section following the main train,
were held by the bold bandits and plundered. No further particulars are available now.
Scouts will cover the whole country
as was done in the Bill Miner holdup of
May, 1906. Fortunately, no one living
in this section is suspected of any connection with these holdups. Miner and
one of his pals lived here two years prior
to 1906.
QUICK ACTION OF BRIGADE
STOPS FIRE.
The fire bell rang out an alarm last
Friday about noon, caused by a small
blaze on the roof ot the Chinese laundry
at the rear of the Thomas block. A
defective stove pipe runniug through the
roof and a big fire in the stove did the
damage. The fire brigade responded to
the call with commendable alacrity and
Chief Campbell isproud of the materiel
at his command. More than ever the
wisdom of purchasing a fire alarm bell
is manifest, which with the proposed
water works to be installed, will give
Princeton uptodate fire protection. Inspection of every chimney and stovepipe
should be matte by the fire wardens, if
not already done.
PRINCETON WILL MAKE THE
LION ROAR.
The celebration of Dominion Day has
assumed such proportions now that it is
certain a good time is in store for all who
visit Princeton that day. It is the last
time the 'old town' will celebrate under
primitive conditions, for next year there
will be railroad trains to bring the crowds
instead of the kicking cayuse as now.
The race track has been put in good condition and good sport is expected. All
the attractions will be carried out in
their entirety. It is urged that the town
be decorated along the business streets
and that all publie buildings be suitably
'dressed with flags and bunting.   Friends
from all parts °of the Similkameen arc
invited to be present and Umake the day
memorable. Sweethearts and wives,
come ; tillicums chako potlach.
PRECAUTIONARY STEPS TO
STAY SMALLPOX.
Dr. Fagan, secretary of the provincial
board of health, writing to Dr. Duncan,
Vernon, says : "In view of the fact that
smallpox is present at many points in
the province, I beg to call your attention
to the following sections in the smallpox
regulations:
it. When smallpox is present in the-
province, any physician who is called to.
visit a person suffering from chickenpox
shall immediately give written notice to
the medical health officer.
10. Phy»icians, teachers and householders shall notify the medical health officer
of the presence, or suspected presence,
of chickenpox."
TOWN AND DISTRICT NEWS
PARAGRAPHED.
A delightful shower of rain on Sunday
gave another boost to the. crops, which
are now in splendid condition.
Manager and Mrs. Marlow have moved
to their commanding residential quarters-
in the Hall block, over the Bank of Commerce. The bank quarters will soon be
in readiness for occupation.
The Britton block is fast receiving its
final touches from foreman Neil Mc-
Fadden.
Miss Laura Irwin, sister of Bert, is.a
graduate of.Toronto Conservatory of
Music and leaves for England shortly.
Gibson's lake, up Five-Mile, is the
angler's Mecca just now. Some pretty
big fish yarns have been spun by visitors
to this lake. The sea serpent and whale
stories are usually sprung at all new fishing resoits, so far, however, Gibson's has
escaped. But look out for the fellow
.who talks about mermaids.
Albert and Nels Johnson arrived from
the coast last Wednesday, where they
had been all winter. They are going to
work on A's mineral claims, Bear creek.
While at the coast Albert sent a man to
the Washington state prison for having
stolen money entrusted to him.
School closes next week, Wednesday,
for the summer holidays. Public examinations, to which parents and others interested are invited, will be held from the
hour of 11 a.m. to 12. Principal Cochrane will visit at the coast returning at
the close of the vacation to-ies'ume his
arduous duties.
Ritchie Bros., of Summerland,' were
visitors to-Princeton last week, coming
across country via Five-Mile creek. They
are townsite promoters, real estate speculators and all round investors and capitalists. They were much pleased with'
Princeton and will come again.

OLD THINGS PASSING AWAY.
A remarkable chapter in the history of the Similkameen valley and
district  is  being unfolded  in  this
year of  grace,   1909.    So   far as
human foresight can penetrate it is
certain that  the close of the year
will find  Princeton   in touch with
the outside world by the operation
of tbe Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern  Railway,  built  by  the  Great
Northern.    The history of western
development shows  that the  ' iron
horse' is the greatest factor in the
progress of new countries:    Some
of the oldtimers on the frontier bewail the dawn of a new era of progress and competition.    They hate
to part with  the  free-and-easy life
and the  days of romance  and adventure.     But   the    world  would
stand still if these persons had their
way.     So,  a  physical  and   social
revolution  is at hand in the Similkameen.     The  railroad is  slowly
and stealthily transforming  the old
into a new order of things. '
Varions problems  confront every'
new   community.      Municipal organization and  the thousand complex questions  to  be dealt with in
laying the  foundations  broad  and
. deep for a city will  call for honest,
honorable and capable men—-men of
good  repute.    The latest methods
of making known to the world the
immense  resources, of this district
must  be  adopted.    Harmony  and
united  action On every matter pertaining to the public welfare is very
essential.     Competitors   in   every
line  of business, even  that  of the
newspaper, will, doubtless, come to
Princeton—welcome   them    rather
than discourage.  Throw pessimism,
which is only jealousy and a torpid
liver combined and is utterly vile,
to the winds when conversing with
the visitor and inspire him with the
and  progress  be the aim ot every
confidence you possess.    Let unity
citizen.
best paying business left to the  express companies,  instead of being
done by the government, as it is in
England and other European countries?   Evidently because the owners of these companies, being  high
railway officials, are able to protect
their graft in the usual way.    And
these people had the  nerve  to  call
Bill Miner a robber!    Honest  men
do not steal from express  companies, or from  train-robbers,   and  for
the same reasons: that it  might  be
bad for tbe health, and that it certainly would be bad for the  morals;
it  would  degrade   the thief to  the
level  of Bill,   though not  tbe  far
deeper degradation of the express
grafter.

It is an axiom among progressive
business men that tBeroad to success
leads through  the advertising columns oOheypress.    Many a  man
attributes  hia wealth to judicious
advertising.   #In   fact no  man can
be successftrr in   mercantile, manufacturing or  other business pursuit
dependent on public patronage nth-
out   advertising. .   Yet   tl*re* are
men   who, .knowing this, yet sttrW
tify  their  trade   and  injure  their
prospects for expansion by refusing
to publish their business.    Another
and important  aspect of the question   of advertising   is   to be found
in the  improved appearance of the
local paper when properly supported
by   every   eligible  business  in the
town.    Public spiritcdness alone, if
not ; for  business reasons,   •should
prompt  every  commercial concern
to put an  ad.  small  or big in the
local paper.    Everyone knows that
the  appearance ,of a newspaper   is
only the reflection  made upon it by
the constituents or citizens it represents.    The   Star is conscious of its
faults, failures and errors but of one
thing it cannot   be   fairly accused :
neglect of the interests of the town
and dstrict.    In  season  and out of
season,   without   prejudice  toward
any  or   selfish    ambition,   it   has
always aimed  to promote the general good of the whole community.
Iu this service of the public it has
dropped into a 'hole' nine  hundred
dollars deep, in other words it has a
debt of that amount.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A recent investigation by the
Railway Commission shows that
the profits of Canadian express
companies amount to anywhere
from 92 to 100 per cent a year on
the investment. No wonder it
costs more to send things by express
than by mail.    The Post-office De-
The Saturday Sunset seems to be
the only newspaper in Vancouver
that gives space to the Similkameen
in its editorial columns. While the
other papers are reeling off rot by
the yard on subjects of no practical
use or benefit to the average British Columbian,the Sunset (it should
be named Sunrise) is drawing attention to some wrong, or helping
to upbuild the province. The sun
will not set, but ever rise, on our
confrere while the good work continues. Vancouver dailies will yet
be stung with regret that they neglected, that city's  interests  by not

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geol-
°gy- geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
distiicts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copcer mines.
The metallurgist needs the book fot
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannol
afford to -be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of th«
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper uiiuing shares.
PRICE : $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all

or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you?

The anti-cigarette law went into effect
in the state of Washington at midnight
on June 11. The A.Y.P. exposition police will enforce the law strictly. No
one will be permitted to smoke a cigarette on the grounds.
Kamloops has organized a Citizen's
Moral and Social Reform League. The
o'yject is to create a healthy moral tone
in civic affairs to discourage abuses of
any kind in the enjoyment of privileges
granted by the city, to promote social
a id instructive gatherings for both the
■ ild and the young, at which papers will
b • read and discussed on various topics
of interest.
At Phoenix last week a saloonkeeper
was fined $20 for selling on Sunday,
which goes further to show that the day
of open laws is over, and, as the Fernie
Ledger outs it, "the tinhorn is being
forced to the mat."—Grand Forks Gazet.
The editor discovered that without
pinching himself in any way he had
: saved $100. Then he pinched himself—
• and awoke.
