Hedley Gold Mining Co. is

few days after he sold it in Cape Town
for $56 000. This diamond was afterwards known as the famous 'Star of
South Africa ' It weighe 1 84^ carats in
rough and a stone of unsurpassed
brillancy. This was the beginning of the
South African diamond mining, for in
less than a few months 15,000 persons
were prospecting.
A complete outfit of the Draeger rescue
apparatus for use in case of coal mine
accidents has been recently received by
the Princeton Coal & Land Co. This
apparatus is recommended by govern
ment inspectors of mines, and tbe Com
pany now -has a duplicate set of these
necessary appliances for rescue purposes.
Regarding the purchase pf Voigt camp
mineral properties by the B C Copper
Co , no details have been given out, but
within a few davs the final signatures are
expected to the document which will
make the Comp-iny owner.
The gold dredging company which has
leased five miles of the Fraser river above
H .pe, has its dredge and equipment
under construction at New Westminster,
and will begin operations at coon as they
can be brought up the river and the
best permanent location for them
determined.—West Yale Review.
The Hedle}- Gaz tte says re the Hedley
Gobi Mining Co : 'It has always been
understood that the tonnage month by
month for the year was well up, ami thai
the recovery was good. To pay out
$360,0110 in dividends in a single year is
certainly a wonderful performance and
when its is known that the sum of
$836 520 has already been disbursed by
the new company in dividends and that
the total amount which they paid for the
mine a little over three years ago was
less than that, the present owners are
certainly in an enviable position. But
the best part of it is that the real per
fnrmances of the mine in the way of pro I
duction are apparently only beginning
More is known now of the reserve of ore
than was ever known before and the
c.ming year is sure to witness great ex
pan sion in the operations of the company.'
In 1867 John O'Reilly a trader in South
Africa stopped for the night at the house
of a farmer. He noticed that the farmer's
children were playing with some pebbles
they had found in the river. O'Reilly
took one of the pebbles to Cape Town
where an authority called it a diamond of
22)4 carats ami paid O'Reilly $3 000 for
the stone. The farmer at whose house
O'Reilly stayed remembered that he had
seen an enormous stone in the hands of a
Kaffir witch doctor and Ira ling bis entire
Jive stock to the Kaffir for the stone.    A

XMAS TREE AT COALMONT.
The Christmas tree celebration at
Coalmont on the evenfng of 24th, proved
a very decided success. This was to be
expected from the fact that contributions,
amounting to about $130, were given by
the residents of town and district. The
attenMance on this festive occasion was
equally creditable, the schoolroom being
filled to overflowing. An excellent pro
gran.'almost exclusively in the hands of
the children, was submitted. The tree
was richly decorated with presents, and
after these had been distributed a vote of
thanks to the organizers was passed on
motion of Rev. R. J. McLean. Miss
McQueen deserves evety credit for the
excellence of the program.
Christmas day was ideal weather and
many enjoyed they sleighing.
Conferences between the Kettle Valley
Railway Company and the Great North
em, or the Victoria, Vancouver and
Eastern as the subsidiary organization
of the latter is called on this side of
the boundary line, which have been in
progress for ten days past, were brought
to a conclusion last Friday at Victoria,
when President J. J. Warren of the
K V.R and Vice-president Gilman of the
G N R., with their engineers and head
officials, met at the Provincial buildings
and finally disposed of preliminaries that
are expected to lead up to an arrange
ment between the two railway systems
for the construction and operation of that
section of their lines from Kootenay to
the coast, known as the Hope mountain
division of the respective roads.
It is proposed that all formalities shall
be completed by January 15, and it is
expected that an agreement will be
reached for the joint use of a single track
through Coquihalla pass and then eastward to Coalmont.
The trackage in question wiil be about
fifty miles in length, involving very
expensive construction as it is almost
altogether rock work. The country is
understood to be rich in both mineral and
timber wealth, and rapid and extensive
development is looked for as a re-ult of
the completion of transportation facilities.
After their conference, Messrs. Warren
and Gilman had a short, interview with
the Prime Minister, to whom they
reported the outcome of their several
conferences ; Mr. Gillman left during the
afternoon for Seattle en route East, and
Mr. Warren took his departure for the
Upper country in the evening.
Sir Richard McBride also had a short
interview with Mr. Gilman yesterday in
respect to the adjustment of the Victoria
and Sidney Railway affairs, Mr. Gilman
reiterating that it is the determination of
the Great Northern to pay much more
attention to British Columbia and its
necessities for transportation facilities,
both on the mainland and on the Van-
Island, than it has given in the pas .
E. E. Coley's susvey party is camped

CHRISTMAS TREE, 1912.
The Christmas tree, initiated and
Carried to a successful issue by a few
public spirited citizens, aided by the
generous contributions of townspeople,
was held Thursday evening last, 19th
inst , and was largely attended. T8e
chair was taken by the Rev. R.J. McLean,
who contributed largely to the pleasure
of the occasion by his native Irish wit,
anecdote and well timed remarks. He
was ablv assisted by Miss Scott, whose
services were in demand as conductor,
and by Miss Irwin who gave her musical
accomplishments freely. The thanks of
the children and the public generally are
extended to those mentioned for their
labor of active love.
The program was delightfully rendered
to the audience of some 300, and caused
much merriment     It was as follows :
Recitations—Hazel Bombard, Dolly
Waterman, Edna Evans, Linda Os orne,
Beulah Pascoe, Kathleen Kirkpatick,
Edward Jones, Vernon Nelson, Linton
Osborne, David Jones, Ernest Garrison,
Carl Gibson, Maurice Wright and Bruce
McLean.
Vocal and instrumental selections-
Ida Huston, Kathleen Kirkpatrick, Mary
Young, Naomi Leighton, Effie McLean,
Lilian Bolin.
Three choruses in which all the
ch.ldren sang, entitled 'A merry Christ
mas,' ' It came upon the midnight clear,'
and ' Christmas all the year-'
Dialogue—Eleven boys and girls,
'Xmas in Naughty Land.'
On the tree—a present and a candy
sack for all the kiddies was presented
by good old Santa, who was present in
all his glory.
A vote of thanks by the Rev. M. Jukes
and W. C. McDougall was tendered all
who had by contribution or labor assisted
in the success of the occasion.
' God save the King '
SLANDER REFUTED.
A Merritt newspaper says ' that the
Christmas tree committee at Princeton
sent to Uncle Tim's for their presents.'
The reporter is sadly mixed as it was
another town where that occurred. Star
resents emphatically any such slanderous'
imputation cast at the ladies composing
that committee, and asks said newspaper
to apologize or be subject to a charge of
libel.
Grouchers are the fungi of society just

H. N. Rogers, Provincial Constable.
I, T- Clark King of the town of Prince-
ion in tne province of British Columbia,
"I > solemnly declare that having, on the
- ith day of December, A.D., 1912, ex-
ft nined the building known as Thomas'
1 ill, situate in Bridge street in Princeton,
;>.C. I wish to make the following
report, viz :—I inspected very carefully
; be said building from foundation to roof,
a.id found the building we 1 constructed,
• ind of good materials of sufficient dimensions adequate to sustain the strain of any
tssembly that would be contained therin.
Considering that the building has been
used for five years I find no settlement of
the foundations of same, all sills, posts
and foootings being in good condition.
There are two exits to the building,
one in front being four and half feet
wide, and one in the rear being three
feet wide.
The building is two stories high, and
the floor of the hall is thirteen feet four
inches an the south side where windows
six in number are ituated. There are
also six windows in front of building
which are same distance to the sidewalk.
And I make this solemn declaration
conscientiously believing it to be true
and knowing that it is of the same force
and effect as if made under oath, and by
virtue ol the Canada Evidence Act.

I9I2-I9I3.
It is not without gratification
that a review of the closing year,
iqi2, is made and a forecast of the
opening new year, 1913, thrown on
the canvas of the future. Steady
progress has marked the past year
and the future of Princeton and
disrrict is no longer in doubt. A
stage in our growth has been reached wherein existence is no longer
dependent on one industry or any
one enterprise. If certain deals do
not mature, or certain industries
do not build and flourish there are
others ready to take their places
and push on the general development. Competition in every line
of business is a sure sign of expansion and as such it is welcome.
An honorable competitor is a valuable asset of any thrifty town. No
man, no institution can live without the support, it may he indirect, of all classes and conditions
of men. The broadminded business man, mechanic, miner and laborer recognizes the power of unity
and as a loyal citizen he will patronize home institutions rather than
send money away. This is the
governing principle on which big
thrifty towns and cities are built.
Princeton is making progress and it
is due to the loyalty and cohesion
of her citizens. The past year has
been the best in volume of business
transacted; it has far outstripped
any year in building operations,
and the population of the town and
district has about coul led. With
an encouraging retrospect such as 1
has been indicated in a few hurried and di.-jointed sentences surely
the horizon of the tuture glows
with the prospect Jbtis refltcted.
Nineteen-thiftein opens with an
unclouded sky. The pulse of the
people beats strongly with hope and
alluring expectation. Great projects, now in their preliminary and
formative stage, will take on the
g.rb of actuality. New resources
and new fields for enterprise will
enlarge scope of the investor. Increase of opportunities always precede the crowd in search of homes,
business and occupation. No other
town and district can at all compare  with   Princeton   in variety of
resources, in proof of which a few
are quoted : Gold and platinum
placers, Tulameen diamond field,
semi-bituroinous coal in Priuceton
and district, coking coal at Coalmont, copper-gold mining in several
camps, silver-lead at Whipsaw and
Leadville, gypsum, mineral paint,
asbestos, tungsten, iron, clays and
limestone. Include, if you please,
among those resources, a charming
climate, agricultural land, sheep
and cattle pasturage, lumber and
pulp timher, cement, horse raising,
poultry, dairying, fish, big and
small game, winter and summer
sports, and scenery that transcends
famed tourist resorts in the old
world. He would be exceedingly
fastidious who could not find here
opportunity and inducement for
homebuilding or investment. The
town of Princeton has every convenience and comfort in the hotel
accommodation and its stores are
uptodate. Tourists, and all travelers, will find their every need pro
vided for. With three of the biggest financial institutions in America located here no one but a white
livered pessimist could doubt the
stability of the district or the inducements that led them here. The
bank of Commerce was first to establish, next the bank of Montreal,
then the Royal, all of which have
attested their confidence by investment in real estate or by perroauent
location. Many towns, and even
cities, would be glad to have three
such solid and ably conducted insti
tutions, whereas they are obliged to
endure second class banks or perhaps one third rater. Every Prince-
tonian points with pride to the
banks here and within himself says
the 'best is none too good.' The
presence here of these institutions
is an incentive to capitalists and
companies and must add to the tone
of the town and district.
The completion of the transprovincial trunk road and the shortening of the distance by rail to the
coast are now within calculable
measure of time and during 191 ■
will be pushed to the desired end
and give the Similkameen that connection which all have been so patiently waiting for. Important
mining deals and railway construction will make 1913 a busy year.
Buildings will, no doubt, go up as
in the past year and altogether a
prosperous year is dawning. To
all Star extends best wishes.
Misrepresentation and meanness
are special gifts of some editors and
the Grand Forks Sun has several
times falsely accused Star. Here is
its latest:
The Similkameen Star, which during
the federal elections, worked the annexation bogey to the limit, now makes the
following candid confession : ' They [the
Canadians] are not suspicious of their
neighbors [the Americans] at any time
excepting at elections, and then only for
vote catching.'

AS OTHERS SEE US.
Those who have by calling to deal with
public questions and the sentimental side
of life, know well the truth of the saying
' That a prophet is not without honor save
in his own country.' Often those who
profit by one's unselfish efforts will
smite the hand that gives, and the least
appreciative are usually least benefit to a
community. Star has rarely, if ever,
published comments from other newspapers, but as there is sound doctrine and
a principle in the following, we make
bold to publish it. The Merritt Heiald
says:
'An Honorabi/e Stand.'
'We were delighted to see, in the issue
of the Similkameen Star of November
20th, a long article in answer to the
effusion of the Coalmont Courier, in
which the editor of the Star makes an
honorable and straightforward avowal
af his belief in the teachings of Christian
Science and expresses a wish that Clark
would study a ubject before he under
takes to refute its hypotheses.
While personally we are not adherents
of that faith, under that name at any rate,
we are firm believers, as is Wright, in the
superiority of mind over matter, and we
consider it a sign of the times when an
editor is not afraid to make known his
[belief on a subject through the medium
of the public press.
'. The triumph of the more spiritual
doctrines over the grossly materialistic
trend of thought that has marked the ast
fifty years is becoming more evident every
day and we are convinced, as is the
editor of the Star, that the day when such
doctrines will, form the only recognised
religion, is not far distant.
Spirituality is the essence of Christianity, Buddhism, Confncianism and nearly
^kll the other world wide religions and the
majority of modern teaching is anv-
thirg but spiritualistic, appealing as it
does principally to the more material
side of man's nature.
Again we beg to express our admiration
of the wiv in which Mr. Wright has stuck
to his guns and we consider that, to say
the least of it, his reply is worthy of a
more noble opponent.'
