LAND, FRUIT, MONEY
Settler in   Similkameen  Sells
Ranch for Handsome,
Big Figures.
Apricots, Large   and Luscious,  Figs
and Common Fruits Grow
in Profusion.
. Mr. and Mrs. D. Gillespie, of Okanagan Falls, their daughters Ethel, Nellie,
Mrs. Lawrence and daughter Thelma and
A. B. Lawrence were at the Great North
em on Sunday. Excepting Mr. Gilles
pie none of the party had seen Prince
ton before although they had read of its
beauty and great surrounding mineral
resomces. The town surpassed their expectations—it seemed so cosy and roomy
compared with other places located in
narrow defiles with mountains all around.
Mr. Gillespie located at Okanagan Falls
tome eight or nine years ago on what was
then thought to be a starvation ranch.
Illustrative of his and his wife's good
judgment and their combined industry
that ranch with some adjoining acreage
purchased will soon be sold for $18,000,
Io Mr. Ritchie of Summerland. The
fruit yield this year is abundant. Mrs.
Gillespie gathered apricots this season so
large that they could not be put in a Gem
fruit jar whole. Sub-tropical fruits are
grown in this section, Y. C. Kitely pro
ducing matured figs from his fine orchard. Rev. Jas. Lang, formerly of
Princeton, recently sold his ranch near
the Falls for $12,000. it probably cost him
about $2,000 six years ago. Mr. Gillespie has cattle and horses of thoroughbred
stock which he is desirous of acquiring
pasturage for The hills and valley.,
about Prince'on look inviting to him and
lie may locate here. Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence reside at Taanich, V.I., their ranch
there being valued at $12,000, for which
S5 000 was paid. It will be seen that the
Similkameen is a. good country to settle
in, its fruit being equal to the best in the
world and its climate paradisical.
SUPERINTENDENT COMING.
A personal letter to the Star from C. S.
Stevens, Superintendent of the Dominion telephone line, states that he will be
in Princeton soon on official business.
Like all public servants who do not take
pains to give the people efficient service
he has been subject to much 'higher'
criticism. He is perfectly competent to
manage the line, but from some unknown
but surmised cause, he seems to have
lapsed into a deep unconcern and let
things go as they would. It is believed
that Mr. Stevens will only last through
this political campaign as a hard working
Liberal booster has been spotted for his
job if the Grits should be returned, if not i
a Penticton Tory is looked, upon with
'avor. Wherever the blame rests for the
serious condition of telephone matters it
is necessary for the people, who own the
line, to know who should be punished
and a full expose made. Perhaps Mr.
Stevens would give the board of trade
a talk on recent events here. Both he
and Mr. Ross would have had a better
tale to tell had their visits been oftener
this way.
SETTLERS WANT ROAD.
The Star is in receipt of a letter from
"Settler" at White Lake, in which he
complains that he cannot get any newspaper to print his grievances as they are
all friendly to Mr. Shatford, M.P.P.,
whom he feems to think a great offender. The sum of the letter <"s that Mr.
Shatford, accqrding to "'Settler," promised in the fall of 1906 that a road
should be built to connect Maroon Valley with the Keremeos road, for which
an appropriation of $300 was made, of
which only $120 has been spent up to
date. The road will cost $2,500 to build",
and will save a day in a trip to the Keremeos market. "Settler" has a grievance
and, no doubt, like all other grievances
that are well founded it will be rectified
in due time. Legitimate and continuous
agitation will do the trick.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Labor Day falling on Mondav last board
of trade will meet next Monday. Full
attendance requested to discuss matters
pertaining to health, &c.
Large number of celebrators went to
Hedley for Labor Day snorts. The weather was ideal. The Star engaged a special reporter for the occasion but up to
the time of going to press not a scrap nor
a whisper was received. It may be he
got a sunstroke, or bit with a rattler, or
most likely he was "taken sick to his
stomach" at the way the Nighthawkers
did things. The news will keep anyway
till next issue and thus spread the excitement out a little.
R. B. Dickson returned home from the
Royal Columbian Hospital where he has
been undergoing surgical treatment. He
speaki in high terms of praise of Drs.
Rothwell and Hall, his attending surgeons, and also of the institution. His
neighbors and friends will be glad to
know of his convalescence after a hard
siege of illness. Mr. Dickson is accompanied by his brother, of Sunderland,
England.
J. B. Haddad, the well known watchmaker and jeweller, whose periodical
visits here are much appreciated by patrons, arrived on last Wednesday's stage.
Consult him about your jewellery and
watch, Office and repair works in the
French fruit and pool rooms, Bridge St.
J. O. Coulthard has begun his new residence, 24x52, W. Thomas, contractor.
ANNUAL INSPECTION
Managing-Director of Vermilion Forks Co. on his
Yearly Tour.
Business Depression in Old Country
Attributed to Socialistic Ideas
of Cabinet.
Managing-director A. Hickling of the
Vermilion Forks Mining and Development Co. arrived in town last Saturday
on his annual tour of inspection. While
in Rossland he was interviewed by the
Miner, which is as follows :
"ArthurHickling, the well known capitalist, is in the city and will be here for
the next week, after which he will go to
Princeton to look after his collieries and
other interests there. He arrived in New
York from London six week's since and
in the interim has visited St. Paul, Minneapolis, Minn., London, Ont., and other
places.
In speaking of conditions in the Old
Country he said that the people over
there have been giving themselves up to
events of different kinds and to enjoying
themselves. There has been a succession
of interesting affairs, including the Pan-
Anglican Synod, he said, which drew
churchmen from many portions of the
world. The horse show this year was the
most successful ever held. "Then we had
the entente cordiale, otherwise known as
the French exhibit, which drew immensely and was a great success, to say
nothing of the Marathon games and
traces which caused the assembling of
immensely large audiences and in which
athletes from a number of the leading
.countries participated.
"How about business? There is nothing doing much, nor will there be until
the present Socialistic government of
Great Britain has been retired. The people have no confidence in it. As a result
there is a dearth of new investments and
it is difficult to launch the most promising enterprises. Say a man intends to
invest-in breweries, which are among the
best paying form of industrial enterprises.
He now hesitates about parting with his
cash for brewery shares, and for the reason that he fears that the present government may take a, notion to confiscate
what he has invested in. Of course there
is the house of lords, which is not socialistic and which is a safeguard. Everybody, apparently, is against the government, and in the by elections the government is losing, even constituencies that
have been Liberal for many years, and it
should not be a great while before the
present government is retired.
Speaking about railway conditions in
the Similkameen section, Mr. Hickling
stated that the Great  Northern branch
which is being extended into that section is making rather slow progress. The
25 miles between Keremeos and Hedlev
has been graded and now the graders are
engaged on the 25-mile stretch that separates Hedley and Princeton. Owing to
the difficulty experienced in handling
the tracklaying machine it has been concluded to not use it on the 25 miles between Keremeos and Hedley but to wait
until it cau be employed to put down the
steel on the 50 miles between Keremeos
and Princeton. Just as soon as the road
is completed to Princeton Mr. Hickling'
and his associates will begin outputting
coal from the collieries of the Vermilion
Forks Mining and Development Company. The coal is excellent for household and steam making purposes and it is
anticipated that there will be a large
quantitv of it ma-keted on both sides of
the line. The Great Northern branch is
being extended to a junction with the
main' line at Wenatchee and Mr. Hick:
ling expects that along this branch there
will be a considerable market for the output of the Princeton collieries. It will
also find markets in the Okanagan and
Similkameen and in Rossland."
THE CAMPAIGN IS ON.
G. A. Harris, of the Vernon Okanagan,
with his wife, was in town two days last
week, leaving on Sundav for Nicola. He
is a political scout and forerunner of the
great Duncan of Woodgre*h. Mr. Harris is a gentleman of suave manner, at
one time traveller for a balloon factory
in Detroit, Mich., which accounts for the
gas quite noticeable in his conversation,,
then he descended to newspaper work
and now he is on the road again soliciting for the firm of Laurier & Co., who-
are selling off stock as they expect to go-
out of business about Nov. 3. Mr. Har
ris talked volubly but asked not to be-
quoted in the Star.
A " GREAT " MAN.
Duncan Ross, M.P., is a great statesman and telephone manager; a sort of
two in one. He won't give the Howse
Co. telephone connection because a member of it huffed him a little once. That
is pin-head politics and shallow statecraft rolled into downright meanness.
More telephoue revenue is derived from
the Howse Co. than any other bnsiness
house in town. Yet their phone is cut
off the main line. There are some good.
Liberals in the Co. and in its emplov and
Mr. Ross disgusts them by refusing to
give phone connection. And yet we are
told this great man expects to be premier
of Canada.   Ye gods ! what gall !
C. P. Charleton, of the A. E. Howse
Co., Nicola, was a passenger by the Nicola stage last week. He will be located
here for some considerable time and is a
prominent acquisition to the baseball
club.

RE PUBLIC TELEPHONE. •
The Star is in receipt of a letter,
as under, from C. S. Stevens, superintendent of the telephone line, regarding the recent, appointment of
telephone agent here. ' Space is
gladly given it. Reference in the
letter is made to an article in the
Star, which is also published, so
.that the reader may make his own
comparisons, form his own cbnclu-,
sions and make his own deductions.
With that loyalty for one another
notorious among government em
ployees when one of their number
is under public judgment or censure
the superintendent comes, nodoubt,
upon request, to the relief of his
beleaguered agent. May not Mr.
Stevens be actuated by the idea
that owing to his own unpopularity
and poor management he, too, will
sooner or later require stout defence?
If he be too vain or bumptious to
call in aid he would, at least, like
to see a few mourners around on
the day of his official execution and
• funeral. In any case it would
smooth the way to his self dug
grave if all his., agents would burn
the incense of eulogy to stifle the
■odor of his deeds. Panegyric-
squibs of Mr Stevens will be given
generous space in the Star. Now
for his kind letter :
Editor Star—Sir : A copy of your
issue of Aug. 26th has come into my
hands and I note upon your front page,
under caption "Public Telephone at last,"
you have something to say relative to the
appointment of Mr. Bell as agent, and
note you have a veiled suggestion
that WHII.E Mr. Bell, was President
of the Board of Trade, endorsing
the appointment of that body's re
commendation, he had accepted the
agency himself.
I feel that I should take some notice of
this statement, and by so doing clear Mr.
Bell of any such imputation. As soon as
I received the recommendation' of Mr
Bell as agent I started my men at once to
install the agency, not even waiting for a
mail by which I could advise Mr. Bell of
his appointment. He therefore knew
nothing of his appointment until my
men arrived, bearing the letter conveying the information. 1 will not be
thought to be divulging private corre
spondence If .1 tell you that at this mo
ment I have upon my table a letter from
Mr. Bell, asking if something cannot be
■done to follow out the wishes of the
Board of Trade and have the agency
transferred to Mr. Avery. Personally I
have no choice in the matter, as they are
both strangers to me.
This office will see to clearing its own
skirts when the proper time comes, in so
far as the closing of the office at Princeton is concerned, and I have no doubt
that Dnncan  Ross,  M.P., is quite capa
ble of defending himself when the occasion arises.
I am not in the habit '-f taking note of
any criticism of thts department made
through the press, but I felt that you
were wronging Mr. Bell in the eyes of
the people of your community should an
explanation from me be not forthcoming.
I hope you will give this letter the same
publicity as you did the article in question. Faithfully yours,
Chas. S. Stevens,
Superintendent.
Summerland, Aug. 31, 1908.
The article containing the 'veiled
suggestion,' so called by Mr. Stevens, is printed below. The Star
was, and is, of opinion that the
article referred to was the most
unveiled, plain piece of English it
had penned in many months. It is
an old truism that if you want to
discover malice where there is none
a "tool" full of suspicion and
falsity must be employed. It is sur-,
prising that Mr. Stevens should
lend himself to any such ignominious purpose. But here is the article :
"Public Telephone at last: At last—
fruit of the agitation begun some months
ago for a public telephone was observed
by the placing of a phone in the store of
A. Bell, agent, last Saturday by Dominion government employees sent from
Hedley, thus ending a senseless delay.
A public telephone should have been
given Princeton long ago. It would have
saved a lot of inconvenience to those having urgent business to transact. The
shabby, ungentlemanly treatment of the
board of trade by D. Ross, M.P., in
ignoring its recommendation of an agent
after the board had been requested to
make one AND THE ACCEPTANCE
OF THE AGENCY BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD WHO LOVINGLY ENDORSED THE BOARD'S
APPOINTEE, are matters now in the
limelight of conversation and disapproval."     |rfj^
The President did accept the
agency and the President did
unreservedly support, the motion of Messrs. Waterman and Hall
endorsing and recommending to
Duncan Ross, M.P., H. H. Avery,
jr., for agent. The President does
not deny those two emphatic, unveiled statements. There are many
witnesses to corroborate them.
Now Mr. Stevens kindly show
the public where the 'veiled suggestion' lies in the above. Can any of
your employees show it, can any
three sensible men in the district
show it, can any court or tribunal
show it ? They cannot, because
there* is nothing veiled. There is
no wrong imputed or intended toward any man. It is fact told in
the plainest, unvarnished English.
But you, Stevens, take two definite
statements of fact, distort them and
read into them malice, envy and
deception. O, perverter of truth
Kinsman of Munchausen ! No
wonder the Saturday Sunset flayed
you recently in such scathing terms
A " superintendent " without authority to select an agent. A mere
tool for Ross and his ilk. No self
respecting person  would  have the
job without full authority.
Mr. Stevens says he can clear his
skirts—that will be believed when
it is done. Meantime, as champion
and defender, will he tell the public why it is that his agent here,
though professing in words a desire
to have the telephone agency transferred to Mr. Avery, yet by his
actions tenaciously hangs onto the
job? Actions speak louder than
words, as all the world knows.
Why does he not resign ? There
is no law, ancient or modern, to
make him keep it if ho does not
want to. Please explain, Mr. Stevens, this inconsistency of action
and word. Analyze it, if you will.
And here let it be said that the
postmaster cannot be 'fired' if he
pitches the telephone out of his
office. The P. O. inspector and
other authorities have stated that a
postmaster can only be dismissed
on the substantiated charges of dis
honesty, incompetency and political
partizanship—tbe present incumbent is not an offender in any of
these.
While Mr. S. is pulling abovt
acorns out of the fire, will he or
any one of his employees point to
a single utterance in the Star under its present manager, where the
telephone agent now, or at any
time, has been "wronged" by it.
Mr. Avery is the person wronged.
He is the rightful appointee and has
a private apartment for the tele
phone. The statement is made that
he is a Tory and therefore should
not fill a small, picayune Liberal
billet. Tories had it before. But
Mr. Avery, jr., is not long of voting age, and has never been identified with any -party. The stupid
Liberal heelers had an opportunity
to make a good Grit of.him but
the "dose" he gotfrom them is not
likely to make him enroll under
their banner.
It is the duty of a public journal
to stand between the people and
imposition and expose it—the Star
will continue to do this without fear
or favor. It invites Mr. Stevens or
any of his employees to reply. The
Star is in possession of a mass of
correspondence relating to telephone
and other matters which it will publish if occasion requires. Brief
letters are invited.

zent Peak, and she stood above him some
twenty feet. "What ho ! " he gasped.
"What do you see ?" j
"Far, far below," she cried, "I see a
long, white streak, stretching like a paper
ribbon back almost to our hotel!"
"Ha, ha!" he ejaculated. "I'll bet
it's that blessed hotel bill overtaking us !"
And they proceeded onward and upward.

- MINES AND MINING.
The supply of co_e„|br smel^ejcs in the
Boundary is giving some uneasiness.
Smelter managers have been informed by
the Fernie coke makers that they will
be ready to deliver coke soon, the work
of repairing the damage done by the fire
going on rapidly.
The smelter and mines of the Dominion Copper Co. in the Boundary have
been tied up two weeks for lack of coke.
The company arranged for a supply of
coke from the coast, but the C.P.R. did
not deliver it on time and the smelter
went dark.
Only five furnaces have been in operation at the Granby but it is expected to,
soon operate.at full capacity as the coke <
begins to  arrive   from Fernie in usual
supply.
The only    mining   company   in   the
Boundary    not    affected   by   the   coke
shortage from the  Crow's Nest Pass is
the  B.C. Copper,  whose ore shipments |
and smelter treatment for the past week'
ranged around the highwater mark.
