BUILDING NOTES.
J. Rnudson has the walls of his cement
block residence completed and is at work
on the superstructure. The building has
a most substantial and imposing appearance, and with the manufacture of
cement in East Princeton this material
is bound to be cheap and in much vogue.
The Hotel Princeton, as it will be
known when opened, about the middle
of November, is in the last stages of fin
ishing. Mr. Swanson has spared nothing to make it the equal of the best, and
the house is sure to be well patronized
from the first.
!. Scherbaeur has improved and mod-
e-inized th» old Barber buildings, which
he purchased last summer. They are
now comfortable and in a location that
makes them valuable.
IN EAST PRINCETON
B.C. Portland  Cement Co. is
Shaping Toward the
Final Work.
Cement is Expected to be on Delivery
in Early Spring—Hotel to
be Built.
East Princeton, Oct. 23 —Representatives of the Peace River Realty company
are in town today, looking over their
holdings in the district, and the East
Princ.tou townsite, for which they will
act as agents. Important announcements regarding developments on the
townsite will be made in a few days.
W. J. Budd  left  for Calgary  on Mon
day.
C. R. Briggs, secretary-treasurer of
the British Columbia Portland Cement
company, is in town for a few days on
business.
East Princeton is to have a large 40
room hotel in the near future. It will
be of cement, aud has a fine appearance,
from the illustration shown.
The wheels of industry and the massive machinery will turn out cement at
the beginning of the coming year. As
it matures it will be ready for delivery in
the early spring. At the present time
the full capacity output of the plant
could be readily sold.
The future of East Princeton is very
hopeful and bright. Added to the permanent industry of cement making are
the coal and ore mining deposits soon to
be operated by a large Spokane company
on completion of the deal with the pioneer United Empire Co.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Douglas Stewart, recently of Vancou
ver, but fo»merly of Glascow,  Scotland,
is a  new member of Ithe Bank of Mon
treal.
R. Pitts, of Sheffield, Eng., brother-in
law of James Holden, has arrived and
will bring his family in later on.
The Vienna Boarding House, Miss
Schotzko, proprietress, is open for guests.
This house is fitted with modern conven-
ieneces and is well adapted for firstclass
trade. Miss Pchotzko learned her pro-
fessiou in old Vienna, the capital of Aus
tria, a city noted for good cookin gand
gastronomic tastes. The Vienna is centrally located, and will be found home
like for ladies and gentlemen.
Large flocks of geese aud ducks have
begun flight to southern climes The
familiar 'honk! honk!' of the g.nders, as
they call to their partners to line up, is
heard frequently during the day, and on
into   moonlight.     They   alight   on   the
lakes for food and rest, and, possibly, to
fill some hunter's pot.
A meeting of citizens is called for next
Wednesday evening, October 30, to consider the question of an efficient fire
fighting service. All the big fires in
Princeton have occurred in cold weather,
due, no doubt, to the increase in heavy
firing. A tend the meeting and help in
the matter of adequate fire protection.

Princeton. Tickets $1. Good musio and

current events and happenings throughout the world as recorded in Pathe's illustrated weekly are also thrown on the
screen. The Parisian fashions are interesting.
The big street roller at work-is making'^
a good job and shows what can be accomplished with uptodate road making
machinery. Present and future generations will bless 'Good Roads Taylor' for
his discreet expenditures.
PRINCETON HOSPITAL.
From time to time gifts to the hospital
have been made by friends of the sick
and of the institution. It is the intention
to acknowledge all donations through the
press, a custom observed otherwheres, for
the encouragement of those who, give,
and as an incentive to all charitably disposed. The matron is pleased to gratefully acknowledge receipt of 15 quarts of

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
We can all learn something from even
the ant.    The person who loves to speak
of self is not aware that one is estimated
by deeds not words. The ant says nothing, of course; but its works call forth
our praises.
A little deed of kindness, may
Thy ransom be from cares of day;
The scales of mercy, balanced true,
Each kindness gives back to you.
The knowitalls never take advice but
are quick to give it in large and emphatic
doses.
Cheer up! Adversity is only a means
of making one appreciate prosperity. To
be always prosperous life would lack tbe
spice of variety.
Good cooking is a requisite in a good
wife. No daughter is fit for the duties of
life who cannot make good bread and
prepare an acceptable meal.
The man who cannot recollect his
wife's birthday is not generous and will
sooner or later regret his negligence.
Life, if happy, must be strewn with generous deeds in the home, from whence
radiates good.
Knocking is disease of an impoverished
mind, cured by intelligent thought.
The day of the brotherhood o man
will not be hastened by nations arming
in a nonsensical race for superiority.
The battleship builders, powder and gun
makers, with a hireling press, incite envv
and jealousy for their own purposes

GREEN WITH JEALOUSY.
Under the heading, 'Princeton
Will Not Get Railroad,' the Nicola
Valley News gleefully remarks that
the main reason for sidestepping
this town is 'that the Merritt coal
mines have passed the development
stage and are bona fide shippers of
an excellent grade of steam coal.'
Why the Kettle Valley should leave
out Princeton because steam coal is
produced at Merritt is one of those
things that no one can understand
but the excellent editor-logician who
pilots the News through slush and
dead water. There is plenty of room
-f_p" both Merritt and Princeton. No
need then for the News to argufy to
the disadvantage of Princeton. The
facts are that three or four preliminary lines have already been run
through Princeton by tbeKettle Valley people: the locating line is within four miles west, on the Tulameen
river, coming this way, and, more
important than all, Mr. Shatford
M P.P., pressed an agreement with
the K. V. Co. that the line should
serve Princeton. The government
of British Columbia bonused the
Kettle Valley on condition that it
would serve East Princeton, Princetou, Coalmont and Tulameen, and
in face of all this evidence, tbe
News states that Princeton will not
get the railroad in question. There
is more tonnage awaiting the Kettle Valley at the points named than
can be hoped for at Merritt, which,
beyond its merchandise and coal,
has little or nothing to offer. Coal,
ore, cement and a large mixed traffic will accrue to the Kettle Valley
railroad the minute it is completed
via Princeton. The fact that two
of the largest railway companies on
the continent are competing for this
tonnage is probably sour grapes to
our friend. The only consolation
Star can offer him is that some day
electric lines will radiate from
Princeton, and, if Merritt grows,
one will probably reach the lonely
burg where the cow slips blossom
every morning.
A Canadian built navy will spend
the money in the country and develop our resources—this is truest
patriotism.
MOVING UP!
Next week Star will remove to
larger quarters on Billiter avenue,
in what was formerly known.as the
Cliff house, so named because of the
cliff-like surroundings. The demands of the times require increased
accommodation, the old quarters
being too cramped for the mechanical staff, and we are sure the circumscribed, stuffy room had a certain jerky and snappish effect on
the editorial opinions set forth in
'ten-point' from week to week and
from year to year. When the reader
is informed that in this small room,
10x24, it afforded space for the
editor's sanctum, business office,
composing room,-press room, mailing department, store room, bed
room, dark lantern society, literary club and political consultation
room, he will ha^e some idea of the
exigencies in frontier newspaper
life. If the Star shows improvement commensurate with its new,
enlarged and lofty quarters, then
readers may expect lofty ideals, expansive politics and careful treatment of all subjects from the genesis of man down to the latest style
of bonnet. Next week's issue may
be delayed, owing to removal of
the heavy machinery, type, stock
and the editorial chair; but, in less
than a week or two, the Star will
be settled down and ready to execute all orders for subscriptions and
job work. The future home of the
paper has been planned for the center of the town on Bridge street, on
which will rise a 'sky-scraper' of
cement, steel and marble; meanwhile, the'staff will be conte_ct~as.
cliff dwellers. From this height
many items and subjects for trenchant, scalding editorialet may be
caught on the fly as the scribe looks
from his vantage point on the stream
ot passing humanity. Shine on,

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Americans,or Sammylanders,
are an excitable people, resembling
the national bird with ruffied feath
ers and fuss. Last week it was red
sox; on the fifth of November it
will be 'old sox' for the man that
wins. Uncle Sam always has something to keep him a-guessing, and
surely will never die of ennui, anyway.
As a believer and defender of all
those who wish to exercise the right
of woman suffrage, Star hopes that
for tbe sake of the cause only legitimate agitation will be carried on by
the leaders in this sacred movement.
It undignifies woman, and the whole
question of votes for them, to use
violence or to be playfully tweaking
some politician's nose. Votes for
women will come all the quicker, as
come they must, if they will only
labor and wait. Be patient then,
dear sisters, truth and right will
triumph.

A   CRAVEN  SLANDERER.
e abject apology given by the editor
of the Calgary Eye-Opener for abuse
handed oue to E. P. Davis, lawyer, is an
illustration of the utter cravenness of - a
degenerate specimen of humanity. This
man is recognized as a character assassin,
and, like all of his class, has had to eat
the humblest kind of pie. Bombast and
slander do not count for much, and the
person using them is sooner or later
forced to admit that he is a liar. Foi.
lowing is Edwards' pusillanimous apol
ogy:
'E. P. Davis, Esq., K.C., Calgary:
'Sir—I beg to offer you my sincerest
apology for a vile attack on you which
appeared in the Calgary Eye Opener (of
which I am publisher) under date of
August 8, 1912, for the publication of
which I was yesterday committed for
trial on the charge ot criminal libel.
There was not a particle of. foundation in
fact for that attack and I never believed
there was. Neither has there been any
foundation in fact for that attack, and I
never believed there was. Neither has
there been anv foundation in fact for the
various other attacks on you which have
appeared in the same paper during the
last four years.
'I have never known you peisonally,
and never have had any dealings with
you, and my sole motive for these attacks
was that I thought you had critirised me
and my paper too severely in an address
you tuade to a jury some four years ago.
'I   promise  not  to mention your name
again  or  to  refer to vou in any way, di
rectly or indirectly, iu any future number
of the  Calgary Eye-Opener or any other
paper that may be published by me.
'I authorize you to publish this apology
in any way you maj' see fit. Yours
truly. R. C. Edwards.'
The charge on which Edwards has"
been committed is one of criminal libel
and uiust_£P to trial in spi.e of the above
apology, unless the attorney general of
Alberta gives his consent lo its withdrawal.—Calgary News.

Princeton Coat and Land Go.
__
PRINCETON
In the center of a coal and ore producing district, situated at the junction of the Tulameen and
Similkameen rivers.
Agricultural and grazing lands, suitable for
sheep, cattle and horse raising, poultry farming, etc.
Climate is dry and healthful, an agreeable
change for those living at the coast, or in humid at=
mospheres.
Scenery, fishing, hunting and shooting unexcelled for the painter and sportsman.
The future of PRINCETON is assured. The rise
in real estate and farm land values will be repeated
here as in other centers.
Railroad connection with the coast and the
Okanogan will give impetus to development and
production.
