 With the Railway comes Coal Mining and the Payroll
The competent person does not talk of himself: He Is content to let his work speak for him.
Progress and development hinge on the one great need of the country, transportation—It is almost an absolute certainty that the V.,V.
& E will be in operation here before the close of the year—Investment will never be more favorable than now—Come and see.

RAILROAD DIVISIONS
Princeton a Junction and Divis
ional Point Make a
Sure Payroll.
V.,V. & E., Through Great Northern,
Acquires Valuable Acreage
From V.F.M. Co.
A deal of more than ordinary signi
cance has recently been consummated
between the Great Northern and the
Vermilion Forks Mining Co. rep,esented
by Krnest Waterrran, manager. It con
sists of the purchase of 13X acres of land
ou the west boundary of tht townsite,
near the proposed Tulameen tunnel, by
the railway company. Such large ground
space at this particular point, in connection wi'h extensive tree grants of land
already given by the V.F.M. Co., is an
index of future requirements on an extensive scale.
It is undoubtedly the intention of the
Great Northern to make of Princeton a
divisional point in the transference of
its traffic. This will necessitate car repair shops, roundhouse and all the ac
cessories of a sub-terminal point. The
area of ground already acquired by the
railway gives an importance to Princeton
which can hardly be overestimated. It
means a large payroll to begin with
and gives that stability so much desired
by the investor and homebuilder. Then
there can be no doubt of a junction with
the main line by a branch tapping the
southwestern coal and ore deposits.
These are all considerations that give
value to all town properties and cause
those rising tendencies which denote
progress and development.
As was anticipated the Vermilion Forks
Co. advanced the price of their lots on
1st June from 10 to 12 per cent, more
than formerly. The demand for real
estate is steady and prices are firm. Individual owners are not at all zealous in
pushing sales. The time, and other con
ditions are not favorable for large deals
but a better opportunity for men with
small means to secure a home lot or one
for business will never be presented
again. It does not require acute foresight
to predict a general rise in all land values
as the means of transportation and development draw nigh.
Grading will shortly begin on the spur
leading to the V.F.M. Co's coal mine
shaft. When this is completed the rails
will enable the delivery of machinery
and required equipment for loading»lSil*
road cars with coal.

A.Y.P. Formally Opened with
Great Eclat Before an
Immense Crowds
President Taft Touches Button at Na-
4tb tional Capitol and Wheels
Begin Bevolving.
Seattle, Wash., June 1. — [Special]
Promptly at noon, today President William H. Taft pressed an electric key in
the Capitol at Washington, and the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition was
formally opened to guests from every
part of the world.
The opening exercises were conducted
in the presence of a quarter of a million
of people. The enormous crowd stood
silent and awed as the solemn words of
invocation were uttered by the Right
Rev. Bishop Edward J. O'Dea, bishop of
Seattle. Not a flag or strip of bunting
was displayed from the thousand flag
Staffs and domes ; the entire exposition
city awaited with suppressed eagerness
the touch of the President's hand. With
the first stroke of the bell announcing
the arrival of high noon, the deep sounding whistle from the University power
house taken from the Russian gunboat
that announced the transfer of Alaska to
the United States years ago, gave response to the flash from Washington,
and every wheel of the exposition machinery was set in motion.
The address of weleome was delivered
by Director-General Nadeau, followed by
Hon Sir J. Bryce, British Ambassador to
the United States, Hon. Jas. J, Hill, President of the Great Northern Railway
Co. and others.
Invitations to the editors of B.C. have
been issued in which all tbe courtesies
usually extended to the press will be
available on presentation of credentials.
THE PUBLIC SCHOOL.
The enrolment of the public school is
40, as against 26 last year, an increase of
over 50 per cent. Inspector Miller visited the school on May 19 and found it in
a reasonably satisfactory condition. He
made some recommendations as to the
time table and arrangement of work, &c.
which are being carefully carried out.
The usual public examination will be
held on Wednesday, June 30, as the law
now requires school to be kept up till the
end of the month, instead of till the last
Fiiday, as formerly. The school keeps
on growing in spite of the natural falling off after the recent entrance examinations. The daily attendance for May
averaged 26.38, an increase of almost 20
per cent, over the same month last ye..r,
when there were no examinations.
RAILROAD OFFICIALS
Inspect Bridge Sites and Grade
on Quick Trip Over
the Line.
No Definite Time Stated for Tracklay-
. ing to Begin—All Depends on
High Water.
Chief Engineer Hogeland of the Great
Northern, J. H. Kennedy, C.E., and J..
Porter of the firm of Porter Bros., tie
and bridge timber contractors, were at
the Great Northern Hotel last Thursday
night, having driven from Keremeos on
a hurried inspection of the grade. Mr.
Hogeland gave close attention to the
four bridge sites which the V..V. & E.
requires in crossing the Similkameen:
river between Princeton and Kererneos-
The steel for these bridges is now in
course of delivery and will be ready for
tracklaying when it begins.
Of the day and date when the tracklayers will commence to lay'steel west of
Keremeos no man seems to know. It is
not likely that anything will be done .
before the water subsides in the river
and that depends on the amount of snow
in the mountains and the time it takes to
melt it, which depends on the heat of Old
Sol, which depends on the concatenation
of the planets, which depends on the*
wireless orders from Uncle Jim, who depends on himself and. does about as he
pleases' with governments and people.
The grass is growing nicely on the grade
made more than a year ago and it looks
as if the Great Northern would have a
big bunch of hay to market after high
water. Probably the next excuse for
delay will be too low water to float timber for bridges. In face of all probabilities it has been stated by one of the high
contractors that tracklaying begins on
the 10th inst., sure.JLand that construction west of Princeton will be pushed on
immediately over the Hope mountains
to the coast.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Govern<J^0ewdney was registered at
the^greafNorthern recently.
Mr. and Mrs.. Marlow gave a dance
party last Friday night which was, by
general consent, the best this year.
Seven feet of snow on Hope summit

UNIVERSITY AND MINING
SCHOOL.
Certain newspapers madejjght of
the Star's advocacy of the location
of  the   Provincial    University   at
Princeton.     Those  papers showed
"an ill^concealed jealousy of the reasons   proffered    for   choosing  this
town ; mxirjeover,   they  did not advance  anytfiifng  but presumptuous
bombast   in   favor   of  their   own
towns.    In selecting  a  university
site three conditions are essential,
viz : healthful climate, convenience
and proper environment.    Without
a shadow of doubt,  the climate of
Princeton  is as  healthy as any in
the world, the seasons being so well
■defined  as  to  relieve them of any
•monotony, ,and  yet all possessing
those equable qualities which prolong  life  and'make  it  enjoyable.
An absolutely healthy and invigorating climate is vital  for tbe young
student  life.     Convenience means
centrality aud> adaptability for ease
of communication.     Railroad con
veyance with postal, telephone and I
telegraph communications   are admittedly requisite and all these will
be supplied here betore  the  end of
the year.    The  moral,   social and
natural environment of Princeton is
very  favorable.    The  existence of
^so-called 'necessary evils' are subjected to  a  wholesome fear of the
law and public sentiment here embodies all that  is  rational  for the
teaching   and   due   observance  of
Christian    belief   and    principles.
The location  of universities  in or
near large cities has  been the undoing of many a young  man, especially those of country birth and'
rearing.    Then, there arethe natural  resources  here   which  offer  a
wide  field  for investigation, study
aud research.    All  classes of mining,   geological   structure,   experimentation with economic substances
and  the acquisition  of knowledge
first hand  from mother earth have
unexcelled  facilities for pursuit by
the  student  in  Princeton  district.
A mining school in connection with
the university must be maintained
and equipped.    If located in a mining section  the  advantages would
be so obvious as not to require mention.    Premier McBride cannot fail
to appreciate the importance of suggestions  made,   and reliance must
be placed on him   to select the very
bast location, in doing this the merits of Princeton will recommend the!
construction of the University building here.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One of the immediate results of
mineral exhibitions is the awakening of interest in men who never
could be influenced  in any degree
except by   'ocular demonstration,'
or seeing the real thing.    Correspondence will  follow theA.Y.P.
exposition    at   Seattle."    If  mine
owners and prospectors here would
only realize the efficacy of a board
or union through which they could
advise and consult each other as to
grouping, prices,  conditions,  etc.,
and appoint a secretary who would
promptly attend to correspondence,
better result's would  be   obtained
than by straggling and delayed answers  of  individuals  to  inquirers
abroad.    A local  mining   association would also be of great service
iu diffusing  information about the
various camps.     United  and harmonious action would always  have
the-  effect    of  inviting   investors,
whereas  th^e  difficulty  of   dealing
with isolated and independent owners often repels capital and thus delays  development and progress, an
injury to  every citizen  of the district.

The. attempt  ,to    commercialize
Sunday by introducingbasebulfwith
all its attendant evils, of gambling
or betting,   carousing,   and   sbJon,
has been  resented  by the people of
North   Vancouver.    Sunday law is
very explicit in Canada, prohibiting
all games where admission   is paid
to  witness   them.    The   law   was
framed to choke off the money grabbers who are  not content with raking in   the shekels  six days in the
week but must needs make a special
haul  on   Sunday.     When   people
become so greedy that they will not
take  a   'day off'   in  a  week from
money-getting then   the law. wisely
provides for  their case and applies
force,. if necessary;  to^make them j
obedient.'    Canadians do not relish
the   'cbntiriehtaP   Sunday so much
in evidence  in  other countries and
any lowering of the sacred standard
of tbe day will not be  tolerated by
the intelligent  mass of them.    An
eight-hour work day and a Sunday
rest day is the natural and inherited
right  of every   human   being  and
Will become universal with the advancement of civilization and Christianity.

HOPE TO OTTER FLAT." '
From First Page.
struction would immediately begin, so
that by the. end of the season the road
would be complete to Summit Camp, 24
miles. Next season the road would be
BrUshed to Otter FlatVor Tulameen.
Col. Stevenson spent all of last winter
iu pursuit of this projected road, receiving, very flattering endorsation of his
object from the Princeton and Vancouver
boards of trade, the Mayor and City
Council of Vancouver, Tourist Association, the Reeve and Council of Chilli
wack, anda largely signed petition.
There is no doubt in the mind of the
promoter as to a feasible route being
found. The road should have been built
25 years ago, then there would have been
development and a busy camp where now
roam the grizzlyand the coyote, and where
now the sweet scented skunk cabbage
with the jungle of devil clubs and salmon berries jUjjibrd food. and cover for
fowl and beast.
Col. Stevenson, or 'Bobbie,£jgs he is
familiarly known among old lillicums,-}
states that Summit Camp is 12 miles from
the V.,V. & E. at Coquihalla Pass and 3
miles from Railroad Pass. The ore averages $140 per ton. A shipment of 1700;
lbs. of this ore to the Tacoma smelter
gave in returns 215 ozs. in silver, $12 in
gold, 70 per cent, in lead and 4 per cent,
in copper.. When the road is built the
ore will stand hauling by wagon to Hope1
thence by" rail to Tacoma or Ladysmith
smelters. Along the proposed, road is
land suitable for a colony of settlers.
The Colonel denies that he changed)
his allegiance to King Edward for that'
of Uncle Sam. It would 'go hard' with
the man who originated that yarn if he'
could find him. He suspects a land
booster in the Yakima valley which be
visited for the purpose of seeing its de
velopment, having passed through it
some 40 years ago when there was not a
white man to be found there. 'I have;
no time,' said the^ol.. 'for farming at
7Q-Xears of age. I and my family own
a beautiful farm in Chilliwack, but I am
too busy with mining matters to attend
to anything else. I intend to play my
last deal in mining right here. Two
companies will be organized this season
to develop and operate mines that I
own and in four months quite a gang of
men will be at work.'       *,>>,/

new—
A foolish depression—why shonld yon
feel blue?—*^
A doubt  as   to  whether  this really is
you—
That's the Grippe I
Strange visions at night, that deprive yon
of rest—
That's the grippe!
A taste in your mouth and a weight on
your chest—
That's the Grippe!
A tired sensation that runs through yonr
veins,
A queer combination of hiches and of
pains,
A rapid admission of absence of brains.
That's the Grippe!
A marvelous weakness comes on in a
day
That's the Grippe!
A petulant wonder "How long will it
stay ?"
That's the Grippe!
A season of fever, a season of freeze,
A quivering weakness that's felt as you
sneeze—
Say, if ever there was a cussed disease,
It's the Grippe!'

it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines

afford to be without - it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
