ing rapidly to the investing public.
A large force of men are now at
work preparing the foundations,
clearing and building, the whole
site presenting a scene of activity
that portends the birth of a great
industry and the dawn of greater
prosperity for Princeton and district.
Construction to be Rushed.
By courtesy ot C. R. Briggs, the
energetic secretary, it was learned
by Star representative that the actual production of cement would
begin nn_ the ist of Nov., the contract for completTStr-Tjf buildings
and installation oi plant with W.
J. Budd being fixed for that day.
Mr. Budd, who is an expert constructor and manufacturer, also
agrees  to  operate  the plant for 30
East Princeton.    The machine shop
is planned to be the best money and
skill can produce so that all repairs,
can be  done  at  home, and outsid
customers accommodated.
The assay office  will handle cus
torn   work   from   prospectors   an
"Others desirtirg^tests  of   minerals.
This  branch   will  be run on commercial lines and will prove a great
public convenience.

The spur will be commenced immediately and may probably include a traffic

all the component parts of cement

the works, the cost of production
will be less than usual, and there
will be no necessity to ally with
any merger.
Everything Uptodate.
The manufacture of Portland cement

\design, specially chosen by Mr.
IBudd. A large Corliss engine of
P50 h.p. will at first be installed to
pe duplicated until 1500. h.p. is de-
[veloped. A 500 kilowatt dynamo
will generate electricity for power
and light for the cement works and
also  for    distribution   throughout
sories of what is intended to be a model
factory town. Considerable Princeton capital is already invested in the
cement bonds and more will follow. The
unity of interest thus brought about will
dispel all chance of suicifl___nv_lry and
cement the cl___T_Ti_to one harmonious
whole, having the sole aim of advancing
the general welfare and building one

made by parties as yet unknown to the
public, and by many believed to be without foundation or fact, a well signed.pe-
titipn has been sent to the proper authorities asking that an investigation be held
to the end that fair play and even handed justice may be accorded all parties
and that the accused may know as a matter of right who his accusers are. Magistrates Waterman and Thomas have appealed for an investigation in behalf of
Constable Ewart.
Major Anderson, looking as fresh as a
daisy, arrived yesterday   in  connection
with  Gt.  Northern  land   matters.     He
knows nothing of resumption of work on
the V..V. & E., and leaves  here for the
west end on rightofway from Sumas.   Hea
confirms the report that the V.,V. & E. j
will run  from Chilliwack  to Hope overf

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The   mineral    ex__ipi-i_>n  to  be
. heid in connection Wi^Pa the geueral
exposition itCVancouver from Aug.
28th to Sept. 4th will afford a fine
opportunity for the display of the
precious and base minerals for
which the Similkameen is justly
celebrated. If enough interest can
be aroused among -mine owners,
prospectors and all others having
the progress of the country at heart
to have a comprehensive display of
the mineral wealth of the district
at this exhibition great good will
have been accomplished ami fhe
mining industry receive,an impetus
that would be of immense benefit;
Vancouver is now a moneyed center
and it is to tbe financiers there that
the Similkameen must depend for
its development. A permanent exhibit of average ores from the district of Princeton would be a splendid advertisement and more than
volumes of writeup would convince
investors of its worth. Some diamonds and a few platinum nuggets
from the Tulameen section would
make the exhibit unique and prove
I an attraction of unusual merit!

Living in democratic Canada and
under the flag that stands' fojr| liberty, justice, equality and fair play
anything, that savors of despotism,
persecution of injustice is stamped
out quickly by the iron ___1 of public opinion. Therefore, when an
officer of the government peremptorily asks for the resignation of a
subordinate, he must in all fairness
hot only give the reason for that
request but he must furnish proof
if required. To dismiss a peace
officer with an unearned cloud on
his character debars him . from future employment as such and leaves
a staih "that Wftects f his livelihood
an/J social status to his hurt and
injury. ,.Tbe fullest, investigation
must be-given the accused, this
is all that honor and fair play demands.
A Rossland tradesman was recently fined $10 for selling tobacco to a
' boy under 16 years of age, although
the boy said it was for an elder
brother. A boy found using tobacco can be summoned and fined. No
boy under 18 can frequent a pool
room, being subject to a fine. Giving liquor to a man whose name is
on the prohibited list is subject to
a fine of $100. No minor (under
21 years) can be served with intoxicating liquor.
