Princeton coal is precious, hence the term 'black diamonds.'
There is danger in extremes, moderation is always safer.

Coal is the backbone and mainstay of Princeton and six different coal companies are wise to this fact—Thousands of miners will
yet be employed in this district in the production of coal and the manufacture of coke—Metalliferous mines In the vicinity.

Vancouver Board Trade Alive
to Interests of Interior
of Province.
Bonus may Induce President Hill to
Complete Railway Without
further Delay.
The daily press report that the Vancouver bocrd of trade endorsed the resolution of the Princeton board urging the
government to accelerate construction of
the V. ,V. & E. As a result it is expected the government will grant the usual
bonus per mile to induce speedy construction of the remaining section to connect
Vancouver with the Similkameen.
The Vancouver board of trade is asking cooperation of the Princeton board
in an effort to have a provincial department of agriculture and immigration established with a view tor settlers acquiring onr agricultural land and also urging
tbe Dominion government to open up for
settlers tbe arable lands in the railway
belt.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of V.,
V. & E. construction, is making inspection of the completed grade to Cardiff.
Contractors have been ordered to return
equipment to Princeton, which does not
look encouraging for an early start on the
remaining grade over Hope mountains.

Col. Robert Stevenson has consented to
give the Oroville Gazette facts relating to
the early days of that section of Washington with which he is familiar. The
Col, is about the last survivor of that
sturdy band of frontiersmen who first
crossed   the Cascades, enduriug untold
hardships and having more than once to
lick the savage redskins to a frazzle. The
Col's reminiscences of those goldhunting
days must prove interesting.
B R. Barlow of Hedley is now fire
boss in Princeton Coal and Land Co's
mine.

PROHIBITION V. LIQUOR ACT.
In Chilliwack a temperance campaign
is on and the fight is strenuous between
the bar aud prohibition parties. So far
as the new Liquor Act has been tested in
the Similkameen it has given general satisfaction and there is nd public sentiment in favor of prohibition. Th's satisfactory condition is due to the excellence
of the Liquor Act and its proper and
consciencious enforcement by constables,
chiefs and inspectors. In the matter of
saving and reforming human derelicts by
placing them on the prohibited list the
Act is golden, priceless, and these same
interdicted individuals in possession of
their new, respectable manhood and better senses, glad even of the enforced opportunity to reform, will yet rise np and
call the lawmakers ' blessed.'
STAMPEDE FOR LAND.
Illustrative of the extreme tension and
sensitiveness which' pervadss this camp
it is only necessary for someone to state
with emphasis that a big placer or ore
strike has been made somewhere and the
whole town is agog or agoing. The latest wild stampede was last Monday, when
a man with an axe on his shoulder going
toward Wolf creek told another that the
government had opened to locators all
coal land held by coal licensees. It was
only a few minutes till the cry was 'get
ye into the hills !' and horses, saddles and
axes were soon in big demand. Everv-
thing was staked, the graveyard and
crown granted land not being exempt by
the excited crowd. There is 'nothin'
doin' now in landstaking, since the law
does not affect old coal holdings.
By the new ruling of the government
regarding coal licenses to issue it has
been decided to not permit licensees to
purchase any greater portion of the surface rights than may be decided by the
chief commissioner to be actually necessary for legitimate.niining purposes.

SALE OP WORK AND DANCE.
In connection with the Ladies Guild of
the Church of England in Princeton and
with the object of raising funds to erect
a church building, a highly successful
sale of work and dance was held today.
The sale was splendidly attended and
generously patronized by the Princeton
people. The usual smaller items, such
as the art gallery, fish pond and fortune
telling, afforded much fun and amusement. The proceedings closed with a
highly amusing auction of 'Shadow Pictures' and a dance, which was much enjoyed by a large audience. Mention
should be made of the admirable leadership of Mrs Marlow, to whose energy
and zeal much of the success of the sale-
is due. The rector desires al_o to thank
Mesdames Watermau, Lyall, Bromfield,
Holden and Prosser, and the other good
friends who who so zealously assistdd in
making the Bazaar so successful. Thanks
are also due to Mr. Waterma Mho added
much to the interest in the proceadings
by appearing in the highly amusing role
as auctioneer of the Shadow Pictures.
The financial result was satisfactory for a
first effort, the net proceeds being considerably over $100.—Com.
