LOYAL CELEBRATION
Dominion Day Duly Observed
With Sport, Pastime
and Reunion.
Keremeos, Hedley, Granite, Tulameen
and Surrounding Sections
Well Represented.
Dominion Day, ih Princeton, proved to
be perfect in conditions which go to
make a successful celebration. The
weather may have been a trifle warm,
tne programme may have been minus
one or two items and the executive work
of the various committees may have been
deficient in some respects, yet on the
whole, the occasion will be written down
in the history of the town as one loyally
observed and enjoyed. There was a
goodly crowd, country cousins and neighboring townspeople coining in two and
four-horse loads. Hedley and Keremeos
showed their usual friendly spirit by the
big contingents of prominent social and
athletic personages representative of their
respective towns, the same being true of
.Tulameen and Granite.
Future celebration committees may
profit by experience of the past in many
details, one of which will be strict adherence to the programme of events:
Nothing will harrass a crowd more or
give greater occasion to fault finding than
the dilatory carrying out of the programme and, as in some instances, wiping out of some of the advertised events
altogether.
Every credit is given those who bore
the heat and burden of the celebration
work ; they were not assisted adequately.
Dominion Day is the one recognized
celebration day of Princeton and ic must
not be allowed to lapse .or fall into in
different administration. The first thing to
be done is to provide suitable athletic
grounds and race track. If the Board of
Trade were alive these matters could be
discussed and definite results obtained
but since it is lifeless,agitationand organization will have to emanate from the
citizens by forming a Sports Association.
In the interest of legitimate and clean
spo/t such an Association would be cf
much service, thereby contributing much
to the amusement and enjoyment of the
public by enforcing rules and regulating
all matters in connection with sport and
celebrations.
The baseball tournament for a prize of
$100 cash was the leading feature of the
first day's events. It was begun with a
game between Hedley and Keremeos.
There was little excitement or enthusiasm throughout this game as it was.evident Hedley was outclassed, going down
to honorable defeat with a score of 20 to
4,   It was different when Princeton began
to 'play ball' with Keremeos. The game
whs keenly interesting while it lasted,
but unfortunately the Keremeosians rer
tired at the end of the third innings,
scoring one run to five for Princeton.
Keremeos had two men bors de combat
and this with Charleton s cannon.ball
pitching seemed to spread dismay among
the visitors. There were some disputes
as there always are, but the umpires acquitted themselves with general satisfac
tion to the spectators. The teams all
played a gentleman's game and parted
with the best of good feeling
Most of the races were on Vermilion
avenue, which had been prepared for the
purpose, with the exception of the half
mile Great Northern stakes and the
Ladies' race for the Rithet Cup. These
took place at the One-Mile track, and
w^re witnessed by a patient and good
natured crowd.
The winners of the different events
.'were as follows:
Tulameen Stakes, X mile, free for
all, J. A. Smith, Steptoe ist; W. Garrison, Sanko, 2nd: W. Garrison, Grey
Dick, 3rd.
Great Northern Stakes, ^ mile, free
for all: J. A/__ancock, Rose Leaf, ist; N.
Knowles, Scamper, 2nd; W. Garrison,
Sanco, 3rd; C. Allison, Johnnie, 4th.
Saddle Horse Race: % mile W. Garrison. Dollie. won.
Pony Race, X mile: J Jameson •
Pansy, 1st; W. Garrison, Rock, 2nd; A.
Henderson, Dancing Kid, 3rd
Cowboy Race : G. AllUon, Nettie, ist;
W. Richter, Johnnie Bull, 2nd.
Ladies Race : Miss Ethel Thynne, L.
Gibson's two-year-old, ist; Miss Marie
Murdoch, Charlie Murdoch's Dan Patch,
2nd.
A side race, horse for horse, was won
by W. Garrison who captured the horse
run by W. Richter.
Rock Drilling Contest: Tim Griffin
and Dan Kepler, ist; Luke Gibson and
J. A. Hancock, 2nd ; J. Carlson and C.
Birch 3rd.
In the dancing contests there was a
lively interest taken in which many couples entered. Mrs. Daly, of Keremeos,
Mr J. Love, of Hedley, and Mr. Chas.
Lambert, of Granite Creek, were selected
to act as judges in the waltzing.contest in
which the first prize was awarded to
Mrs. Rotherham, of Hedley, and Mr.
Sam Gibson. Mrs. W. Garrison and Mr.
F. Garrison secured the second. For
the best Two Step, Mrs. E. Waterman
and T. Daly carried off first prize while
Mrs. W. Garrison and Mr. F. Garrison
received the second.
The hall was beautifully decorated
with bunting, flags and evergreens, and
lighted with gasoline, which with its
large floor space, only gladdened the
hearts of the lovers of the art and every
one went home at a late hour feeling
tired and well satisfied. The music was
excellert, Messrs. Simmonds and Hill, of
Hedley, being the musicians.
RAILWAY IS NEEDED
Mining is Now at Standstill
for Want of Delayed
Ready Access.
Mine at Friday Creek Would Ship if
the Railroad Were Built to
That Point.
E. P Wheeler was in town recently,
having come down from Friday Creek,
where he has large mining interests. He
is pleased with the result of operations
this year and has now an unshaken faith
that a great mine will be opened up there
as soon as transportation is afforded.
A new "crosscut tunnel has been started
on the property, which is now in 48 feet,
the next 20 feet being the distance in
which the main vein of high grade
boruite ore is expected to be tapped
After piercing the high grade vein it is
intended to cut a granite dyke some 75
feet in width, then into a 300 foot dyke
of low grade ore, from which tonnage
will be produced *br the coming railroads
and smelters. '
On the north side of Friday Creek a
7-foot vein ot high grade ore has been
exposed In running this tunnel 34. feet;
oflow grade ore was cut th^t will aver
age 4 per cent. From indications, the
d.\ke is over 200. feet, wide at this
point.
Extensive development work will start
as soon as a guarantee of transportation
is forthcoming to carry the large bodies
of low grade ore now in sight The lack
of a wagon road to the camp and as
far south as Roche river is one of the
hardest propositions miners have to contend with in developing their claims, and
will soon place the matter before the
Mr Shatford, M.P.P, and ask for assistance
in building a good wagon road to the
district.
With easy transportation the Columbia
Copper Mining Co., with which Mr.
Wheeler is prominentlv identified, could
furnish from 100 to 300 tons of ore per
day when properly developed. A wagon
road is built as far as Ashnola, which may
be considered the gateway to all this section of country. But to get machinery
beyond thi°. point is almost an impossibility without a road.
REAL ESTATE FIRM.
H. H. Avery and son have, for the
past year, been travelling around the
newly opened parts of Canada, and after a
careful selection, have decided to make
their home here, because they think that
Princeton has a brighter and more prosperous future before it than any other
newly opened up territory in Canada.
"Why !" said Mr. Avery, sr., "you have
the prettiest townsite in the Dominion
and everything to make one of the mos.t jj
prosperous cities in the world. Good
climate, coal and timber lands, minerals,
^ood water supply, stock ranches and the
finest fruit lands in B.C. What 'more
could a place want? Oh yes; and we
will have a railway in here in less than a
year." Messrs. Avery have lived in Nelson for the last twelve years and both are
well known throughout the Kootenays.

COKING AND NON-COKING COAL.
1 Editor Star—Sir: Regarding the letter of Mr Waterman, re coal, in your
last issue I wish to state that when
Messrs. Weeks & Adams gave a contract
for coal at Princeton they were not aware
that it was procurable at Granite Creek.
The Princeton coal was delivered here
before they gave the North Fork coal a
test. I took the contract to delivet them
a ton for trial, which was the only North
Fork coal they used. They pronounced.'
it a far superior coal to that of Princeton.
But their furnace was not adapted to ar
coal of such heating properties: It was
too hard on the grate bars. It would
have to be mixsd with some inferior quality, like the Princeton coal.
Mr. Weeks wanted me to take the contract to deliver them coal for ihe season
from the mines here. They paid ine
$12 for the ton I delivered, which was a
larger sum than they paid for the Princeton article. I think Mr. Waterman should
not believe all the stories he hears but
come and see our mines himself.
Yours truly,
W. H. HotMES.
Granite Creek, July 4.
[It is right and proper that men should
favor and defend the coal or any other
product of their immediate locality. No
good purpose can be served, however,
by recriminative communications to the
press. Rational people are very much
pleased that the North Fork coal will
coke and that the Princeton coal gives
such eminent satisfaction for steaming
and domestic purposes. There is a market for both when the railway is built to
the mines.—Ed.]
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Miss Hunter of Nicola is in town, the
guest of Miss Tree.'Kenley Avenue.
Word was received by Government
Agent Hunter yesterday afternoon that
the home of W. H. Holmes, Granite
Creek, had been destroyed by fire. Particulars could not be learned.
Telephone messages for Princeton have'
now to be sent to Hedlev and mailed
from there to Princeton. The public;
telephone manager is certainly a whirlwind.
Mrs. Jas. Snowden and her mother,,
accompanied by Miss Myrtle Schisler,
have gone on a visit to their old home at
Welland, Ontario. They will return io.

OUR COAL MISREPRESENTED.
It is  unfortunate that a few persons in this world are so highly sensitive  that they   take offence   on
the flimsiest pretext and build up
provocation where   none   was intended.    Least of all one would not
expect  an  educated, travelled person to manifest a weakness for controversy  and  publicity because an
innocent remark could be construed
into    some    cherished    suspicion.
Looking for trouble or argument is
not usually  a  successful  means of
convincing others of the superiority
of yourself or  the  thing  you possess.    These remarks are suggested
by the  appearance  of an article in
a coast newspaper  reflecting rather
unfairly  on  the quality of Princeton coal and which was dealt with
in a letter in last issue by the Manager of the  Vermilion   Forks Co.,
who fully vindicates the fuel which
has made this town and the Similkameen'famous. ■
The Star has conscientiously compared the North Fork or Tulameen
coal  with . that  of Princeton based
solely on what information could be
obtained on the ground.    Its article
was copied into the coast paper and
gave rise to what in the light of the
. published analyses of last week, was
an unwarranted 'fling' at Princeton
coal.     More    important   still   the
Dominion geologist  in  this section
states that the classification, lignite,
as applied  to   Princeton  coal does
not   do  it justice     He  says that
while his   department    recognizes
only    the   standard classifications,
anthracite, bituminous  arid lignite,
there should be some better way of
describing a coal which technically
may be termed  lignite, yet having
a commercial value equal to either
of the others.    In the United States
the term 'sub-bituminous* is applied
to  coal being  lignite  in character
but possessing qualities rendering it
little,   if any,   inferior to the best
domestic or steaming coal
By one expert, it is believed that
anthracite will be found in the
Princeton coal basin. So far, however, neither anthracite nor bituminous or coking coal has been discovered. On two things, however,
all impartial persons are agreed.
And those are the cleanliness and
non-destructible heat producing factors which make the Princeton coal
peculiarly preferable for domestic
purposes. Some coals warp and
burn out stoves and if strong  in
certain gases are very destructive of
stovepipe, making them unsafe and
requiring continuous attention to
avert fires.
Princeton coal has sufficient merit
of its  own  without  attempting to
borrow any by knocking its nearest
neighbor.    The North Fork coal is
beyond   all  doubt a    coking  coal
and the Star wants to be on record
as   giving it  the fullest measure of
credit  in  that  respect.    Princeton
coal is non-coking. . But in saying
that license is  not given  any promoter or M.E. to  'blackeye' it.    It
will be a duty of ours, to parry any
such attempt  and  in doing so will
strike above the belt and not try to
belittle a  neighbor's article.    The
columns  of  a  newspaper are   too
valuable and life is too short to engage in long drawn controversy as
to the overtopping qualities of some
particular   coal   or  other  mineral.
What  this district noeds is men of
generous  mould,   constructive, not
destructive  knockers.    All energy
and effort  are required to build up,
and make  known  the splendid resources  now  awaiting the enlivening touch of capital.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Would it not be the proper caper
for a committee of citizens to meet
and hold an inquest on the late
unlamented Princeton Board of
Trade ? There are one or two fine
maps and some railway guides that
might be sold at auction. Then
there is the deposit in the bank of
some $50. That could be applied
to the liquidation of celebration
bills now overdue. Whatever is
left could ,be used in holding a wake,
and burial obsequies in the ceme
tery of oblivion.
The telephone for public use is
silent and thereby hangs a tale.
The question now is : Who's to
blame ? And they will all proceed
to blame the other fellow.

The provincial government is in
such good financial  standing, having  surplus   revenue and  general
prosperity  all around,   that a step
forward  in  the  encouragement of
mining and tbe  discovery of mineral should be made.    The Star has

A lie is self-condemning for it makes
the author look and act guilty.
No woman would like to have her husband behave as do other men at whom
she makes eyes. .
Truthfulness must be a great virtue for
notice how low a person sinks in the esti
mation of others when the reputation of
" liar " is acquired.
Deception cannot last. It will unmask
itself because it is wrong—murder will
out.
Truth is mighty and must prevail. No
one need fear the outcome if truth is on
their side.
The mills of the gods grind slow but
sure. Secret wrongdoing is sure to be
discovered no matter how cunning one
may be.   '
Most husbands would rather mind
the baby occasionally than mind his wife
semi-occasional ly.
The world  may owe you a living, but!
try and collect it and it will have as many i
excuses on  tap as a man who is asked to
pay a bill.

THE PUT-IT-OFFS.
My friend have yon heard of the town of
Yawn,
On the banks of the river Slow,
Where blooms the Waitawhile flower fair,
Where the Sometimeorother scents the
air,
And the soft Goeasys grow ?
It lies in the valley of Whatsthense
In the province of Letterslide ;
That tired feeling is native there,
It's the home of the listless Idontcare,
Where the Pntitoffs abide.
They smile when asked to advertise,
And say they will do it tomorrow,
And so they delay from day unto dav,
Puttingoff cycles up and leads them J
away,
And they soon   have to starve, beg or
borrrow.
DECIDEDLY FRIENDLY.
Ranter—I thought this paper was'
friendly to me.
Editor—So it is. What's the matter;
now? I
Ranter—I made a speech at the ban-1
quet last night, and you didn't print a I
line of it. '
Editor—Well? What further proof {
did yon want of our friendship ?
