DISTRICT NOTES.
Mr. Green, 0, E,r found the skeleton
of a soorplon on a sandy bank near
Kettle River not long since, Lai us
hope it lived a happy existence in the
pre-Adamlte iu,ri'.
Throe mill's of the trail from Camp
iMi Kinney  lo  Rock creek  is in a bail
condition, owing to fallen timber and
other obstructions, it would require
a small expenditure to get it flxod for
pack horses,
A petition was forwarded to Victoria some lime ago, signed by residents of Pentictou and Pairview, asking that a bridge be built between Mr
Ellis' house and the Penticton hotel,
where one of the creeks, though dry
during the rest of the year, rises dangerously high during tho early spring.
At the present time there is nut one
single money order ollien in tliu Lower
Okanagan. This is a source of considerable inconvenience to residents and
should be remedied without delay.
No lime should he lost in petitioning
the postal authorities for tho establishment of money order offices at Fair-
view, Osoyoos and Boundary creek.
There are still several bands of wild
horses in the lower country, whi-'h, if
they were exterminated, never would
be missed. In other words they are a
source of direct loss to stockmen and
an unmitigated nuisance, and permission should he granted by the Government to destroy them oil sight. II, is a
strange fact that they nearly all have
matted tails.
Last week a siwash came within an
ace of being drowned while crossing
the moron horseback at, Grand Prairie,
The horse turned round and round in
the stream and finally drifted ashore
half a mile further below. The red
man hung onto the horse's tail for a
time and then managed to swim
ashore, More bridges are required in
this part of the country, but that is no
reason why the settlers should have to
build them at their own expense.
A matter which claims the attention
of those in atlf hot'lty, and which should
be settled definitely without delny, is
the prevalent custom of land-holders l»
alter the roads made by the Government and on which public money has
been spent, so as to suit their own convenience. There have been many notable instances of this, both iu tho Upper
and lower Okanagan, and in nine eases
nut of ten a poor and circuitous road
lias been substituted for a short and
good one. The Government lias certainly been very lenient in the mailer
and has allowed almost any changes to
be made that the parties making them
found to their advantage. In the majority of these instances the change
has been made to save double fencing.
As, however, the public roads are supposed to be for the convenience of the
general public, the least that could be
done would be to insure the building of
a road equally as well made as the one
fenced in. Otherwise. Ibe public must
of necessity pay fur the rebuilding of
roads that they have already paid for,
which is obviously unjust, A great,
many of the public roads throughout
the district are not gazetted, but this
appears to make little difference, as
gazetted roads have also been changed
to suit private convenience.
Messrs, Jos, Schol|e!dand R, Denzler,
two well known Boundary creek milling men, were in Fairview last, week.
The former is part owner, together
with Messrs. Atwood and Lefevre, of
the Number 7 mine at, Al wood's camp,
and with Mr. Denzler In tho Nleiii-
windcr, in the Greenwood camp. He
also owns a third interest In the Little
(Iiant fraction, whicli lies between tbo
Number 7 and the New York. There
are three distinct, leads on ll|e Number
7 carrying gold and silver concentrating ore. One of those has been Iraeul
800 feet and another IKXI feet, and over
$1,200 spent in development work on
same. TheHleniwinderisnowtoqwpll
known to need description, and was
lately bonded for a high figure, On
reluming to Boundary creek Mr,
,Srliol(eld will coiil ini.ie development
work on the Mountain Rose in the
Summit camp, about four miles from
Greenwood. This is a copper sulphide
proposition carrying gold. Besides being interested |t\ srtnie of th« claims
above mentioned, Mr, Denzler is part
owner of the North Star, Red ('loud,
Snowshoo and War Eagle and others
in the Greenwood camp. These carry
sulphide ore rich ill copper and gold.
The ore in all these claims, improves
with development. On bis paturn lo
the camp Mr. Denzler will sink i\ deep
shaft on tbo War Ragle, Mr. T. D.
Johuson, of Mai'ci|s, holds an interest
in this claim,
British Columbia, baa probably bud
siHrtfoicnt boom tawiisite.slaid out. within its limits for some time to como, especially In eases where no effort has
boon madp (<i develop the natural resources of the property In question.
That the lucre laying out a plotof land
into town lots will not necessarily
cause it to grow in!" a town is well ex-
emplifled (too well in fact) by a visit txi
Okanagan Falls, This "rising city"
now can boast of a resident population
of three souls, and as many bodies,
Even the celebrated Hotel Holman,
which resembles a series of bathing
sheds, is now iinlennanted, The survey pegs, however, si ill remind the passer by that he is treading on town lots,
probably the property of parlies hundreds of miles distant, aud an mid copy
of the prospectus of the townsitc company picked up on the ground makes
him smile ironically, when be reads of
the proposed Industries, railway stations and other statements therein contained, Yet there is little doubt that
file place will eventually become a
point of greater Importance than it is
at present, but selling town lots will
not help make ii. so. When the new
steamer runs on Dog lake the greater
portion of the freight from the Upper
Okanagan will pass that way, and
when the wnterpower provided by nature on the townsitc is randy put to
some use, Okanagan Falls may li so
the name it is continually called by tho
people of the district.
Encouraging news comes from (lie
placer mines at and above the crossing
of Rock creek. Mcrsrs Rankin and
Turley have struck solid grave] and are
more than pleased, Just above the
south fork, at the Gold Cup (formerly
the Homostako), Messrs. (i. Buyer, D,
Bowen, G. Hofinastor, .1. Lewis, J,
Blaugh and others interested have already come across considerable color
and are feeling good. They commenced
rk only this spring, and have run a
ground sluice to wash off tho top dirt.
A clean-up will be made shortly.
Above Ibis claim, at White's liar, Mr.
A. Donahue, an old Cariboo and Granite creek miner, is staled to be Inking
out good pay. This claim has already
been worked throe times, and in tho
early days paid two ounces to tho man
per day. Still further up the creek a
Chinese company has been working for
several years. Very coarse gold, some
nuggets running as higli as $1(1 and $18,
lias come out of liieirclaiins, Tlieclaini
highest up the creek was located last,
fall by Messrs. Kline, McDougall and
others. Thev have been waiting for
Ihe snow to go off to commence work,
and will probably make, a start, next
week.
Those Interested in fruit culture who
entertain the idea of planting out trees
in the Lower okanngan cannot do bet-
lei than pay a visit to the orchard of
Mr. Francois Suprenaut (Frank Surprise) in the Kcreuieos Valley. Al'tep
seeing the manner in which these tree:)
thrive and blossom, any doubts as to
the possibilities of successful culture
in this sect ion will a! one vanish und
the visitor will be soon convinced that
the Lower Okanagan is par excellence
the most favored district for fruit
growing in the Province Tbe orchard
is small, ;io! covering more than four
acres in extent, but in it there are
peach, apricot, plum, prune, apple,
pear, cherry and oilier trees in full-
bloom. The majority aro poach trees,
some of which arc grafts and others
grown from pits. They have all borne
a heavy crop tbo past three years,
always ripening well, and the blossom
this season gives promise of it being
still better than the preceding ones,
The aai'AO may be said of tiio apricots.
The apple, plum, cherry and other trees,
are of various varieties, both early and
late, and all seem to hear equally well.
The careful manner iu which I hey have
been pruned and attended to has much
to do with Hit' success met with. There
are also a few vines, the grapes op
whicli have ripened In the open air. Mr.
R. Cawston has also a flourishing orchard in the same valley. 1|. is a pity
there are not more of them.
At the present, timr- ranchers coming
lo Fall-view from Kereineos and other
parts of tile Similkameeii valley with a,
waggon, have to travel by Mr. Frank
Hichler's, and almost lo Osoyoos, a (lis-,
toiico of twenty-foui'inllcs, round three
sides of a square. Asa road could well
be built iqi the eieek to the West of Mr,
Manuel Bavcello's ranch, thence by tho
Clear Water lakes to the north end of
the camp, which would not be mora
than 'en miles long, and would be a
clear saving of a day, and of benefit to
both the mining and farming■ community, the matter is well worth looking
Into this season. The least*the Govern^
nient could do in. the matter would bo
to send an engineer lo report on the
approximate cost of construction, At.
the present time the trail which runs
almost over Ihe same ground is always
used in the summer and fall by parties
going on on horseback. A fence is bo-.
Ing put across this trail at the entrance
to the. valley. There cap. benoobjets
tiuu to this provided that a gate i«
placed so that the travelling public can
pass, (bough t|ie closing up of publiQ
highways with fences by private hu^
owners in certain portions of the dis*.
trict is a matter which should no longer,
be allowed. Y

THURSDAY, MAY It, 1894,
GOOD NEWS IFTRUK,
We  clip   the   following   from   the
|, loiuiston Journal j -
"Two ear-loads of naitow-guage T
rails have been received at Wemitehee
and way bills for about 5(1 car-loads
more iron and new locomotives have
been received by the freight agent at
(lial place. The Iron and inaehlnos are
billed lo Francis ii. Cook.   It,  is  his
intention io ai once commence tho construction of a iiari'ow-giiage railroad
Up Ibe west bank of file Columbia
river to Swansea, thence north on the
Okltnagan river to a point directly east
of Loomiston, thence to this city by
way of Wilggon Road coulee. This
news is exceedingly gratifying, and the
chances are that by November Loom-
jslon will lie enjoying railroad connection with the outside world."
This is gratifying news, if correct, to
the people of the Okanagan country on
ho, li sides of the line, and it Is to be
hoped that the railway will bo continued up to the boundary line at
Osoyoos lake. Whether that would
force tl»o 0,P,R, to build southwards
to that point or not is uncurtain, but at
any rate the Lower Okanagan on the
B. C. side would enjoy the benefits of a
a competing point, and no longer suffer
from the ridiculously high freight rates
at present ill forco over the S. & 0. and
C.l'.R. Though peuplo in this province would naturally prefer, if possible, to help out a Canadian institution,
Still the policy of high rates has not
rendered the C.P.R. popular in this
Section of the country, and it is only
natural to suppose that, if the line in
question runs up to Osoyoos, that a
very large percentage of the passenger
pud freight traffic would go south-
Wards and not northwards as at present. Goods can at present be bonded
through via the Statesfrojn Victoria to
Kettle river cheaper tliau they can be
laid down at Penticton, and when the
new railway is built a similar course
will undoubtedly be adopted by the
lower country merchants unless a material reduction in freight rales is made
by the C.P.R. It is interesting to note
that the second link ill the chain of the
Alaska railway route so forcibly explained by Mr, 0, K, Purry, 0, E,,
when in charge of the construction of
the S. k 0. railway, is now about to be
forged. The route advocated by Mr.
Perry was up the Okanagan valley to
connect with the S, & 0., thence via
Kamloops and the North Thompson
and Chilcotin plains, and it appears
from present Indications that his ideas
are liable to be realized sooner than
even he himself anticipated.
Now that the general provincial eloc.
tlons are near at had it is certainly
tinui for some movement to bo made in
the district towards the selection of a
Candidate or candidates to represent
this constituency, There is nothing to
lie gained by apathy in tilings political,
Itnd if the district is to be properly
represented in the next provincial
legislature tJhe sooner thti selection of
It thoroughly representative man is
made the better. Such being the case,
|t is to be hoped that any parties aspiring to political honors will announce
themselves without delay and pom.
Iiiunicate their views either at public
meetings or through the columns of
the local press. There is certainly, in
any case, no necessity for an election
by acclamation, As far as we are
aware, it is still uncurtain whether
Hon. Mr. Vernon will again ask for
the support of his constituents, op
niPrPly assist In the election of a Government candidate, Several gentle-
liiuu pressed to stand in the Upper
Okanagan have refused, and there appears to be less talk of running a candidate from the Kettle liver district,
Its 11 protest against the manner in
Which that section of the country has
been neglected of past years, HUH
thorn Is no tolling what may happen-
|t is generally the most unexpected
which dons Like place- and the soonor
the tbe voters have the names and
political views of the candidates placed
biifore llmm, l|ic more likelihood will
there be of a suitable man being
elected.
White Valley Notes.
I notice that efforts are made to
lower the rate of current wages In the
Okanagan by introducing main linn
and coast figures for laborers' work,
If a corresponding decrease in the cost
of food and clothing were Instituted,
the move might lie justified. Two dollars and fifty cents has been the pay
for a laborer for day work, boarding
himself, and I see that the city council
of Vernon have lowered that standard
to $2 for street work, so that after paying almut $0 per week for board, and
Wear and tear of clothing, hut little
Kiat'glll in left for tho hardest worked
fit workers, Credit is due to Alderman Shatford fop his attempt to main-
lain the old figure,

creek mines, The enterprising captain
It ilU/llt'W r'.vs!l!!!C»pperatjnrlsf'0i' ''"'
.slimmer. "Nil desperauduiu" is his
motto.
I notice In an Eastern Canadian
paper that "judging from the frequent
favorable mention of Canada of late
by the English press that Canada is beginning to attract attention in the old
country," In my humble opinion it is
about high time that such should be
the case. After a century and a half
of possession and occupation it is being
found out at last that there is a country where over-populated Britain can
Unburden itself to the great benefit of
the old country as well as the new
There is something radically wroiq.
with our emigration department. If
our emigration olllces throughout
(ireat Britain and Ireland are run in
the same manner as in '78, when your
corre pendent had occasion lo transact
some business iu the Dublin office, they
nilghl as well be closed up altogether,
Lumby and White Valley are attracting the attention of outsiders, Several
visitors have been looking up the country with a view to locating. The chances arc good for the opening of a large
general store in Lumby in tne near
future,
Osoyoos Notes.
(From our own correspondent,!
An advance party of emigrants ar
rived at Osoyoos to-day, consisting of
three families with four covered waggons loaded with farming implements
and household goods, and also a number of horses and cattle. They intend
to seek homes in the lower or upper
Okanagan, and failing, to proceed to
the N. W. T. They come from Umatilla County, Oregon.
It would seoni that Beegan has successfully eluded the authorities, as it is
reported he was seen to board the train
tho other day at Wilber.
It is rather hard on intending settlers coining into Canada to have to
comply with the quarantine law ou
stock. It subjects them to a great
amount of annoyance and expense,
and is really not necessary, as it is a
well known fact that no contagious
disease of any kind exists among cattle
in the Western States.
I am Informed that the quartz mill at
Loomiston, which has been lying idle
for some time past, has been leased by
parties wit intend soon to put it in
operation again,
When tho fact of wild t'eeso nesting
in the trees iq this neighborhood has
been mentioned, people on the outside
have been slow to credit the atopy. A
few days ago a still stranger circumstance was brought to light by one of
our residents, who, on ascending a tree
to roll a gouse nest, discovered to his
surprise that the goose and Osprey had
nested together. It would be interesting to know which of the two birds
would rear tills strange family.

daughter.
LOCAL ITEMS.
Half the population of the camp took
in the Oro races last Tuesday.
Mr. R. Oawston, of the B, C, Cattle
company, was in camp Saturday.
A large body of good ore has linen
struck on the Morris extension of tile
Joe Dandy.
Mr. Johnson is spending a week at
Vernon. Mr. Prather is taking his
place on the stage,
Mr. F. Gome passed through Fair-
view from Penticton on his way to
Boundary creek on Monday.
■ Last Sunday a Klootchnian living in
the camp shot herself through the foot
with a revolver. It appears she was
drunk at the time.
The first issue of The Advance was
published at Fairview on the same day
that tbe first stampmill was set in motion at Camp McKinney. This district
is not dead yet by any means.
Three men left the camp to cross the
line last week owing considerable
money to local storekeepers. Characters of this kind are welcome to a permanent residence in Uncle Sam's domains.
Mr. Manson McMillan is setting an
example in the gardening line to the
other boys in the camp. He claims he
can raise better garden stuff than any
one else—barring out Mr. Moffat, of
course.
Mr. David Leblanc, who for some
tinie past carried on a business as butcher in the building adjoining the
Golden Gate hotel, left on Wednesday
for Vernon, en route to Vancouver,
where he has secured a position as bartender in the Manor house.
Two herds have been started in tbe
camp, one by Mr. T. Robinson, who
has his Karral on Reed creek, about
half a mile above Dr. Boyce's house;
the other by Mr. A. Cosens, who uses
Mr. J. Anderson's old stamping ground.
Both have secured a number of horses.
The owners of the Morning Star are
about to ship twelve tans of concentrates to the Tacoma smelter. They
run as high as $280 to the ton. The
carload rate from Penticton to Tacoma is $11 per ton for not less than
twelve tons, and U. S. lines quote a
carload rate on eight tons.
The main cropping of the Brown
Bear, hitherto unworked, aud considered not worth working, is now being
opened up. The ledge, about eight
feet wide, appears to contain two
streaks of well mineralized galena ore,
and tbe chances are that several tons
will lie runtlirough the mill as a test,
Mr. Morris, of Fairview, goes prospecting next month in the Sheep Creek
camp, which lies between Grand
Prairie and Trail, north of the Dowd-
jiey trail, and about eleven miles
west of the Columbia, The well known
0, K. claim was located by Mr. Morris
three summers ago and since sold to
Spokane parties. It is an extension of
the I. X. L., the first location struck in
the camp by John Cole. Mr. Morris
baa immense faith in Sheep creek.
The owners of the Silver Crown
mine (Messrs. Blewett and Hammond,
of Seattle) are expected to arrive
shortly in camp, with a view to developing their property, which is no
longer in litigation, They also own an
interest in the Joe Dundy and the Morris extension, in partnership with Mr.
T. Davis. The Joe Dandy turned out
good bullion in the early days of the
♦.'amp, and a new strike lately made
proves these claims to have been underrated,
Mr. Toronce, mining expert, left Fair-
view on Wednesday for Montreal. He
was very reticent us to the opinion
formed by him of tbe various claims
be examined in the several camps, yet
be unhesitatingly stated that the bodies
of ore hastily examined by him in
Camp McKinney and Boundary creek
Appeared to him extremely rich, He
*lso spoke highly of certain property
in this camp which he did not authorize this paper to mention.
The Smuggler is turning out sonic
fine ore—a claim bought from 0, E.
Campbell by Tljos, Elliot. Mr, Fred
Gwatkjqs, who is now managing the
work done, says be thinks it some of
the best rock in the camp. Mr. Gwat-
kins is the pioneer miner of Fairview
and ought to know, Tho ledge matter
fs widening out, and prospects at 40
feet in depth, where they now are, are
flattering for Jfr. T. Elliot to leave the
camp worth $50,000.
Mr. J, Shubert, road superintendent,
returned from Kettle river last week.
While there he inspected the various
proposed routes over the Boundary
mountain. He stated his opinion that
the one passing by the Skylark, though
considerably the longest, affords the
best grades, and would also furnish a
/ temporary outlet to the Copper Camp
and that the other, selected by Mr.
Burnyeat, O, E„ which passes between
the two groups of camps, though the
shortest possible route, would offer
more difficulties iu construction. The
question will be decided on his return
Within a, week, when lenders for the
construction of portions of tbe road
work will be advertised for. Work
was begun last Tuesday on tbe Camp
McKinney portion of the road whore
it was left off last fall—about eleven
miles from Fairview, several men bo-
in;.; employed. The completion of the
rock work on Vasseau lake will be
commenced in about a week, when a
gang of men will be put on under the
supervision of Mr. Kehoe. It will take
about three weeks to get this finished.
Wednesday the 25th, Mr. Bullock-
Webster found a halfhreed named
Dick Keoghan hopelessly drunk at the
Indian village at Inkameep, in the
early hours of' the morning. He arrested him and he was tried the following morning before Messrs. Lainbley
and Sidley, J. P.'s, at Osoyoos, for having intoxicants in his possession on a
reserve, He admitted being drunk,
but, stated that he did not know that
he was on the reservation. For this
offence he was fined $50 and costs or
in default one month's imprisonment.
He was further charged, under the
cattle act, with cutting off the ear of a
sucking calf belonging to an Indian
rancher named Batiste—his father's
earmark, He pleaded guilty to the
second charge and was fined $100, or in
default three months' imprisonment,
THE ORO RACES.
Grey Dick the Winner or a Well-Contested
Event.
(Special to The Advancb.I
Oro, May 2.—The matched race, a
800-yard dash, for $250 a side, between
between J. Long's Grey Dick and 11.
Seibert's Barney, of whicli notice was
given in the last issue of The Advance, come off at Oro May 1st, under
very favorable circumstances, and it
was quite apparent by the large number of peoplo assembled to witness the
event that it had been looked forward
to with a goodly amount of interest.
The horses having been paraded, Mr.
Stanton, witii his white pinto and long
whip, was requested by the judges to
constitute himself master of ceremonies, which duties he performed in
his usual happy and pleasant manner,
and soon cleared the track. Mr. W.
Granger acted as starter and sent them
away without loss of time. So evenly
matched were the horses that many
were in doubt as to whicli won, but
after a consultation by the judges
Grey Dick was declared the victor, and
the people from Loomiston gave vent
to their feelings in tho usual manner.
Messrs. Stevenson, Ballier und Lath-
rop acted as judges.
The day's sport was brought to a
close with a 75-yard foot race between
F. B. Barney and Charles Richter for a
purse, but as some mistake took place
at the start the judge, Mr. Stanton,
decided it no race, and it was decided
to run the same over again to-day.
Owing to the ill feeling existing between white people in this district aud
the Indians of the Colville reserve,
there was not a siwash nor dusky
maiden of the plains to lie seen.
Kelowna Notes.
(From our own correspondent.!
The Government has begun repairing
the roads iu this section, and the force
is now engaged on the main road, near
Mr. Dell's property, where the new
road, gazetted last spring, starts in to
reach the steamer landing and Kelowna generally. It is to be hoped that
they will continue the work in the
right direction, for " westward the star
of empire takes its way," and why not
roads. There is a giod deal of complaint about the manner in which the
new road has been shifted about, most
of the remonstrance coming from the
ranchers in the northern portion of the
valley, who feel it most. For a time it
was difficult to know whete the road
was, but just at the moment there is
one, though how long it may stay there
it is difficult to say,
An inquest was held on the 21st Inst.
hy Coroner McGowan on the the body
of young Welby, the unfortunate
young man who was drowned in the
lake tho 10th, Mr. Walker, who was
the companion of the young man, at
the time of tbe accident, gave the only
evidence bearing on the case, which
was to the effect that deceased must
have been taken with cramps, or had
somo affection of the heart. The funeral took place Sunday, 22nd hist., and
was largely attended, although the
young man was not extensively ac<
qnainted in tho valley. A Church of
England minister was not available for
the occasion, and Mr. Mair, of Kelowna, kindly consented to read the
burial survice. A number of floral
offerings were sent by some of the
ladies of the Mission,
Mrs. Eli Lequime and Mrs. Bernard
Lequime, after a sojourn of nearly
three months in San Francisco, returned last week, accompanied by the
father of the latter lady, Mr. Jas. Dowl-
(ng. Mr, Dowling is; one of the old
pioneers |n this country, having gone

HYDRAULIC MINING"
Qranite Creek and the Slmllkameen Rlvor to
bo Worked.
Mr. It. Stevenson, a former partner
of tbe celebrated Cariboo Cameron, has
formed a company to develop the valuable hydraulic placer diggings on the
benches above Granite creek, and is
now, with other parties interested, in
the east placing stuck on the market.
The company has been registered as
"The Stevenson Gold and Platinum
Hydraulic Mining Company," of which
Mr. Stevenson is president and xMr. W.
M. Hogg secretary.
For at least three miles along Granite creek the benches contain good pay,
and it is for working the n that the
company has been organized. They
hot only contain gold, but also platinum, which can be saved at the same
place and time, being the heavier of
the two metals. For the working of
the benches it, will be necessary to construct flumes and ditches for a few
miles, so as to obtain sufficient elevation for pressure, and as the primary
expenses will necessarily be large it. has
been found expedient to call in outside
capital. It is a well-known fact that
close to the river, where accessible to
water, these benches have yielded large
returns.
Last year quite an excitement was
created by the fact that a number of
eastern capitalists bad become interested in the development of largo tracts
of hydraulic ground near the junction
of the Similkameeu and Tulameen
rivers. It is now understood that the
investigation made of the property
proved that there is a large quantity of
gold in the gravel on the benches alaiut
fifty feet above the bed of the Similka-
nieen, and that active operations on a
large scale will be commenced and carried on this season. A flume or ditch
will have to be constructed for a distance of about five miles.
Vernon Notes.
Not seeing any correspondence from
Vernon in your first issue, I thought a
few notes would be appreciated.
The weather has been very favorable
and a very large acreage is lieing sown
in the valley this spring. Messrs. C.
O'Keefe, Mark Hill, Price Ellison, E,
H. Woods, Q. Faulkner and L. Gir-
ouard will be through seeding, or nearly
so, this week. Mr. McClusky, on the
B. X. ranch, has got in all his crop,
Quite a number of settlors have located on the commonage and are busy
breaking, seeding and putting in their
crops.
A large orchard is being set out on
the B. X. ranch.
The fruit trees on the Coldstream
ranch are looking remarkably well,
In mining matters there is not liiu.'h
to say. dipt. Shorts was in from Har
ris creek last week and reports heavy
snow in the mountains. He is work
ing up a new scheme and one of great
value to fruit-growers—the extermination of the gopher. He says he has
struck it this time and judging from
his mysterious manner I think he has.
On Monday, Kith hist., the ratepayers
of Vernon, by a large majority, decided to hang up $5,000 for the erection
of a 60-barrel flour mill, with eondl
lions. It is very doubtful if any one
can lie found with the necessary capital, who would be foolish enough to
comply with one of the conditions—to
run nine months every year. A flour
mill is a commercial enterprise, the
same as any other industry, regulated
by supply and demand. I think the
city council will find it a difficult matter to find any one willing to comply
with the conditions they have attached
to the bonus.
Now that the flour mill by-law is disposed of, I think it is time we wero
making a move towards fire protection
of some kind. As we stand now, we
are helpless whenever a fire occurs. Tho
by-law introduced by the council of
last year was defeated. I believe it
was a mistake to vote it down. Its opponents have nothing better to offer
now, and the members of the present
council who opposed it are ashamed to
introduce it again. Such is the irony
of fate.
Mi's. Grecnliow and Mr. Girouard, to
the surprise of every one, have placed
thirty acres of their land on the market in half-acre lots, at $1000 an aero;
no building conditions; terms not
known. Barnard avenue is continued
west and narrowed down to 110 feet,
with a jog on the off side. Two streets
running north and south will be called
after the owners, Girouard and Green-
how avenues. There will lie a lane in
the centre, which should be called De
Lorier's alley if it is crooked. However, it is, taken on the whole, an improvement on old Frank's townsitc,
and will sell—by and by, E.
Make Sure of Your Vote.
Blank application forms for the registration of provincial voters can be had
at The Advance office. In connection with this matter information furnished by the collector at Vernon may
prove of interest.
The old register was closed on the
21st day of March, 181)1, and all names
of persons not known to be resident, in
the district were dropped therefrom,
leaving those who have complied with
the provisions of the Provincial Voters' Act, and whose names have been
posted for two months on the list of
persons claiming to vote, and are
known to be resident in the district.
The names of those persons who have
not been posted for two months prior
to 2lst March, 1801, shall not be added
to the register until the two months
expire. Also those who send their
applications now must lie posted two
months liefnre their names can lie
placed ou the register.
"The names comprising the new register, as well as those taken from the
old list, will shortly he published, thus
giving people a chance to see whether
their names are on or not.
"If any residents are dropped from
the preliminary list that will be published, thoy can lie replaced upon the
collector being satisfied that they are
entitled lo lie op,

"Then tlie doclor is an idiot, and III tell

I refuse to sympathise with you, Mrs, Bow-
ler—absolutely and teetotaliy reiuao to
utter une word of pity."
Mm. Bowser had nothing to say In reply.
Mr. Bowser ate his dinner alone, took ad
vantage of the occasion to drive a few nails
and make a great noise, and hy and by
went off to his club and wai gone until
midnight, Next morning Mrs. Iloweer
fell n bit hull, r and made • heroic attempt
to be about until he started for the office.
The only reference he made to her illness
was to say:
"If you live to be 800 yearn old. yon may
possibly loam euueiliiug about the lawn
of health and be able to keep oat of bed
three days iu tlw work,"
Mrs. Bowser was alt right at the end of

•aid. Then one afternoon at three o'clock
a carriage drove np, and a itrauger im-
s.sted Mr, Bowier Into the house He
was looking pale ami ghastly, and hli chin
quivered and hii knees wobbled.
"What is it, Mr. Bowier?" eke exclaimed
as ihe met him at the door,
"Bed—doctor—death I" he gaiped in re
ply,
Mn, Bowier got him to lied and examined him for bullet hole! or knife
wounds. There were none. He had no
broken limbs. He hadn't fallen off a
home or been half drowned. When she
had satisfied herself ou these point*, ihe
asked;
"How were yon takenr
"W with a c chilli" he gasped-, "with
a ochill aud a b backache I"
"I thought m, Mr, Bowser; you hare
the grip—a teoond attack. Ai I have
•ome medicine left there'i no need to lend
for the Doctor, I'll hare you all right in a
day or two."
"Get the Dootor at once," wailed Mr.
Bowier, "or I'm a dead man I Such a
backache I   So coldl   Mn   Bowier if I
should ddie, I hope "
Emotion overcame Mr. Bowier, and he
could say no more. The Doctor came and
pronounced i. a second attack of grip, but
a very in Id one, When be had departed,
Mn. Bowser didn't aoense Mr, Bowser
with putting on till summer flannel* a
mouth Uio loon; with forgetting his umbrella and getting soaked through, with
leaving hit rubbers at home and hiving
damp feet all day. She didn't express her
winner that he hadn't died years ago nor
predict that when he reached Ihe age of
Methuselah lie would know belter than to
roll in snowbanks or stand around iu mud
puddles. She didn't kick over chairs or
slam doors or leave him alone. When Mr,
Bowier shed tears, she wiped them away
When he moaned, ihi held hit hud.
When ho said he felt that the grim specter
wai near and wanted to kiss tin baby good-
by, ihe cheered him with Ihe prediction
that he would be * great deal better next
day,
Mr. Bowser didn't get npnextday, though
the Doctor said he could. He lay in bed and
sighed and tittered sorrowful moaui and
groans, He wanted loasl and preserves; he
had to have help to turn over; he worried
about a relapse; be had to have • damp
cloth on his forehoad; he wanted to have a
council of doclori, and he road the copy of
bis last will aud testament over three
times. He was all right next morning,
however, Whin Mn, Bowier tiked him
how he felt he replied;
"How do I feel? Why, as right a* *
trivet, of course. When a man takes the
oare of himself thai I do; when he hai the
nerre anil will power 1 have, he can throw
off most anything, You would have'died,
Mn. Bowser, but I was scarcely affected.
It was just a play spoil, I'd like to be
real sick once just to see how it would
leem, Cholera, 1 suppose it was, hat outside of feeling a liitle tired 1 wasn't at all

And the dutiful Mrs. Bowser looked at
him and swallowed it all and never said *

Our correspondent from While valioy

" 1 wonder if ever It will come to pass
that the Okanagan country will have
direct railway communication with the
Kootenay mining district by a route
other than the C.P.H. The. Kootenay
country is being rapidly developed;
(owns and cities are springing up in

i;tinii need agricultural products of

safely say that tho bulk of I his trade is
done with our neighbors across the
line, fifol over a hundred miles distant

j, i;„ in agricultural products, we certainly should make an effort In secure
I his market, which lays iu our own
province, aye, at our very door, A
feasible route has been discovered via
While valley, Cherry and Mosquito
frcelis to the Columbia, near Naknsp;
and another down the Fire valley to
near Jfobson,"

lie is said lo have done well. The same
method lias long since been tried near

One of (he most liaulifiil sights in
tho coir.i'rv pan qnw be seen at the
fruit ranch of the late Okanagan

vines, ton, arc looking beautiful.
The Kettle, lliver district b".s two
mails a wee.lc from tbe Coiled States
and only one from flic Canadian side.
Tbe latter dues not represent one-tenth
of tho entire mail matter. Though the
settlers have to subsidize the line to
Marcus, still they save money by doing

there are people who assort lh;i,t the,

The snow is rapidly melting off the
