TOWN BUILDING UP
Evidences of Progress in Many
Structures   Projected
and Building.
New Premises for Canadian Bank of
Commerce and V. F.M. Co's
New Offices.
T. Lavalley has recently completed his
residence on Sunset Av. where he has also
erected "a   stable  for   his horses.    The
house presents a comfortable and endur
ing appearance, its verandah giving pro
pot tion to the whole.
Neil McFadden has nculy finished his
cosy residence on Penryn Av., the loca
tiou being favored with proximity to the
proposed railway station. The carpentry
is all of the best and the symmetry of
the house indicates good taste and comfortable rooms.
D. O. Day has the contract for excavating for. the foundation of the new
building being erected on the corner of
Bridge St. and Billiter Ave. and which
will be occupied by the Canadian Bank
of Commerce.    He is making good pro-
.jgtftss and   will   soon   be  ready for the
tKjuSws. The building will be 25x35,
t>¥0 ^tojeys, frame, affording ample  ac-
, conjmodation for this large financial institution and fine residential quarters for
Manager  Marlow.     The building is ex
pected to be ready for occupation  on or
about the 1st July.
W111. Britton has begun work on his
1 irge excavation necessary for the new
building to be erected on  Bridge St., lot
■ '2, block 8. Huston Bros, have the team
work in   removing the earth,  which is
I done by scraper and deposited on the
street.   The building will be 35x50 and
, contain on the 2roun<t floor sufficient
space for two stores, the upper storey will
be arranged for office apartments, the
whole bniiding being a substantial structure and a credit to the town. Mr. Britton is right in line with progress and sees
a prosperous future for Princeton.
Bert Irwin has the contract for carrying out improvements on Dr. Whillans'
former residence on Bridge St., near
Kenley Av. When done, the structure
will be much better appearing and afford
shop front with living quarters for family
behind. Mr. Irwin is ably assisted in
bis work by Peter Johnson, consulting
contractor and general improvement
agent for Princeton and district.
Dell Sykes is finishing up his fine new
residence on Kenley Av. which will be
one of the prettiest houses in town when
finished.
The Vermilion Forks Mining Co. have
completed their new offices, affording
1 '10m for a large staff of officials when
their collieries are  iu shipping state.    It
I
can hardly be expected that this company
will undertake further developmenttwKhj
the railway only a question of a few
months in distance and facilities for handling heavy mining machinery vastly improved. A subsidiary company of the
V F.M. Co. will, it is credibly reported,
begin waterworks construction as soon as
the railway can deliver the 'goods.'
" W. Thomas has well under way a fine
residence on the north side of the Similkameen opposite the forks of the two
rivers It has an ideal situation and will
have easy access when bridges span the
rivers at various points.
There are a number of buildings projected for the -coming lummer, It is believed that the end of the ysar will see
greater building operations than has yet
been recorded.
PRINCETON BOARD TRADE
Resolutions re Telephone Exchange and Land and
Water Office.
The regular meeting of the Board of
Trade was held on Monday evening,
President McDougall in the chair. Present, Messrs. Murdoch, Willarson, Conn,
Campbell, Avery, Lumsden, Marlow, Mc-
Dongall, Groves, Cochrane and^.Wnght
After routine communications were read
as iollows:   '
From ij W. Shatford, M.P.P.: I beg
to acknowledge receipt of yours of the
10th inst., enclosing resolution passed by
your Board with regard to a wagon road
from Hope to Tulameen. In reply I beg
to say that the Minister of Public Works
has promised to investigate the matter
fully and if conditions warrant the building of the road same will be commenced
in the near future.
From Thomas Taylor, Minister of Public Works: I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of your letter embodying
resolution with reference to the building
of a wagon road over Hope Mountains
and to say in' reply this is now under
consideration.
From Dep't Interior, Canada, Emigration Branch, ir Charing Cross, London,

of pamphlets dealing with your locality.
* * At any time you have other supplies available of this kind perhaps you
will be good enough to send a quantity

The following resolution to be sent to

RAILWAY COMING ON
Grade is Seventy-Five Percent
Built Between Hedley
and Princeton.
Route Cannot be Altered from All-
Canadian to One South of the
.*$ ^Boundary Line.
. Railway construction is making better
progress than many persons had any idea
of, it being estimated by good authority
that 75 per cent, of the grade between
Hedley and Princeton is now completed.
All the camps have been pitched for the
final work, the contractors having no
■more to do when theirvpresent grading is
finished. With present rate of progress
the remaining 25 per cent, of construction should be completed by July 1st.
No one seems to know when tracklaying will begin from Keremeos. All the
metal is repotted to be delivered at iKere-
meos. Ties, bridge and trestle timber
aie being made by Porter Bros, at their
sawmill near Auarchist mountain and no
doubt can be delivered from there as fast
as required in tracklaying. With these
data readers can form their own conclusions as to the date of arrival here of the
track. It would be idle for the Star to
speculate; it .has done that before and
failed.
West of Princeton not a sign of construction is visible. There are rumors
that a. big push will be made to the coast
when construction is ordered. In any
case Princeton will be the base of supply
and divisional point. All doubt as to
the Coquihalla Pass being used is removed by assurances from Ottawa that
an all-Canadian route is imperative.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Leave your order early for 'Hot Cross
Buns' on Good Friday. Princeton Bakery, Semerad & Co.
R. Lawrence was in town Tuesday on
a business visit from Granite Creek.
O. Rain is relieving Gus Johnson at
the brewery until his shoulder fully re-
c jvers.
Princeton school is growing steadily,
and it may not be long before another
teacher is needed. The monthly report
shows that 36 children have attended
this school year, as against 25 last year.
The attendance for March only averaged
25 85, on account of bad roads and colds
resulting from wet feet, but even this is
considerably better than the highest
monthly average of the last school yea:.
Bill Scruby is reported to be doing well
in Washington.
R. A. Brown, known here as Sunset
Brown, alias Doc Brown, says he has a
sure cure for consumption.   According to
the Grand Forks Gazette, Sunset's remedy has cured many who bad been given
up by the doctors, and he has a sheaf of
testimonials to that effect. The Star is
glad to hear of an old acquaintance again
but is not much-interested in the 'cure',
as consumption is absolutely unknown
here. Prevention is better than cure;
live in Princeton and avoid lung trouble.
J. O. and Mrs. Coulthard left Princeton last week for the coast, visiting friends
on the way at Keremeos and Wenatchee.
Mrs. Coulthard will visit with Miss Popple.at Blaine, Wash , during the summer
and take in the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Exposition frequently. ■ Mr. Coulthard
will be busy attending to his valuable
mining and other interests. He will
have some splendid samples o{ ore on
view at the A.-Y.-P., Seattle, and has a
scheme for affording this section some
unique but effective advertising.
PLENTY OF 600D COAL
President Louis Hill   Inquires
About Supply for Road
to Operate.
The following extracts from a long interview in tbe. Vancouver Province will
be of interest to readers of the Star:
"President Louis Hill of the Great
Northern Railway recently wrote me
asking what amount of daily coal we
could supply the V. V. & E. railway
when it reaches Princeton. I replied
that we could ensure sufficient to mee-
every requirement," said Ernest Waterman of Princeton, manager of the Vermilion Forks Mining & Development Col,
who is at the Hotel Vancouver.
. , This company owns two square miles
of coal lands adjacent to Princeton. Six
seams of semi-bituminous coal described
by the Dominion geological survey reports as excellent for domestic and steaming purposes, have been proved by means
of diamond drilling operations.
This coal is uow being used at Princer
ton and at other points throughout the
Similkameen for domestic purposes. It
sells for $3 a ton. Mr. Waterman is con
fieent that he will be able to furnish coal
for all the towns easterly as far as Spokr
ane as soon as the railway reaches Princeton. He also foresees possibilities for
competing in Vancouver once the same
road has been extended over the Hopfe
Mountains. The coal is said to run over
60 per cent, in fixed carbon.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is many moons since Princeton
was told to get the necessary number of subscribers for a telephone
exchange by Supt. Stevens. The
moons seem likely to wax and wane
many times yet before the exchange is established. Did Stevens
really mean what he promised, or
was he jollying the people, hoping
in his simple way that he would not
be found out ? Were it not that
this line costs seven or eight thousand dollars yearly to run it would
be a most laughable comedy. . The
few Liberals remaining after one
term of Rossism in Yale-Cariboo
are being decimated by the unsatisfactory conduct of this telephone
line and unfulfilled promises. If
the government will accept friendly
■advice they will sell the telephone
line to some company willing to
give the public decent service.
It is quite astonishing the outburst of  gush    some   newspapers
are addicted to when some patriotic
question looms up.    They scramble
to see which can outdo the other in
fulsome    adulation   and   professed
loyalty.   Some  of  them  are now
agonizing about  the 'duty' of Canada to present  a Dreadnought battleship to  England.    We read that
England  is  the  richest country in
the world  and  that  London is the
money bags of all creation  and yet
^Canada  in  comparative poverty is
surged  by  these blatant newspaper
gushers to contribute some six or
seven millions of dollars, a dollar
from every man, woman and  child
in the country,  toward increasing
the British  navy.    It is very much
like a poor man  depriving himself
of the  necessaries   of life  that  he
may present a costly  gift to a rich
person and gain his favor.    A more
sensible proposition is that to create
a Canadian navy on lines similar to
that of our   militia,  both distinct
arms of the service, yet cooperative
and  ready   to  assist  the Imperial
forces  when  the  empire is threatened with  a common enemy.    If
Canada puts money in one or more
battleships she   ought   to control
them—that is  business.    To give
them outright—that is sentimental
gush.    Canadians  are  loyal to the
empire,   proof  of which   may   be
found on many a battlefield.*
the cause of education have been
recently supplemented by a generous donation in behalf of physical
culture and training in the public
schools of Canada. His lordship
made his vast fortune in Canada
and, unlike some others, he holds
that fact in grateful recollection. It
is such acts of kindnessjthat endear
man to man. Canadians wish this
kindly old octogenarian many
happy days.

request the Board points to the fact that
the Superintendent of the telephone line
promised an exchange about iour months
ago on condition that sufficient subscribers were obtained. Eighteen subscribers
have been procured and this Board is of
opinion that an exchange would meet
the conditions here and give satisfaction
to all patrons of the line.
Suggestions were offered re formation
of a local telephone exchange, the sentiment, however, prevailing that the government should install one at present.
Following resolution regarding the establishment of a L/and and Water recording office here was passed without dissent: Resolved : That the Provincial Government make the Mining Recording
office at Princeton • a Land and Water
recording office ; also to appoint a Gold
Commissioner, to be Assistant Commissioner of Lands and Works in Princeton.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
As between a balky mule and a chronic
human 'kicker' give us the first named.'
A woman of oitir acquaintance *says,
young women could choose a good husband by watching how a youngman fagr
haves when dinner is' late. And herhtiS"*
band says young men could discriminate
in wives by noticing how frequently the
above, test is employed in the homes they
visit.
■ Sensitiveness and- suspicion can be
cured by education and travel.
The new religion is love—it is as old
as mankind but fresh every day as the
rising sun. Some kind, lovely deed done
cannot fail of generous reward—try it.
But it must be done in utter forgetful-
ness of self, not letting the one hand
Tknow what the other does.
There are people who play 'The Lost
Chord' that never should have found it.
The proverbial glass house is the home
of the knocker, but he is so 'thick' in his
upper slope that he does not realize""he is
seen in and through.
Wiping out old scores by the cordial
handshake, the friendly 'goodday' or
kindly act, though it costs, a supreme
effort, is crucifixicpio* Ihe flesh—this,is
the death from which springs life eternal
through faith in. the^Redeetnep. ^
Trouble naturally comes to those who
go a-hunting it, when" found' it paj'Sj^en-i
fold.
How ioolish some people are to think
they can deceive their fellows. Human
nature is an open book any intelligent
person can read and understand.—iir
Misery loves miserable company—that
is why the knocker knocks his betters.
