There was a general round-up of

the Okanagan and Simlkameen bands

The white-tall deer, which do not,
appear to wander further north than
the Mission valley, do considerable
damage to orchards by bniiisingiiif
the branches of young trees, both in

enough to keep them out would prove
a profitable Investment.

The names of several well-kni wu

during whatever crops can lie. made to
grow, while the good, the Okanagan
valley, close at hand, is lying idle and
literally going tfl waste, Such is tl|e
pernicious effect of land monopoly,
When, the first settlers located
ranches in the Kettle river valley it
was commonly agreed by the largo
land holders In the southern Okanagan
that they could never make a living in
that region. If those who made that
prophesy were to compare the two districts at present they would be forced
to admit that the gift of prophesy was
not iu them. As the land in Kettle
river is held in comparatively small
blocks, the settlement is n flourishing
one, and promises to be more so before
long, when ite. mineral wealth is developed.
There niv vtivj-lavgc U'ljcb lanilsaliiiig
the Siniilkameen valley, the soil und
situation of which are all that could lie
desired. They are, however, lying
almost entirely unproductive for want
of water. As there is an immense fall
to tho Siniilkameen river there is little
doubt that, large tracts could be placed
under systems of irrigation, which
would necessitate the outlay of considerable capital, but small In proportion
to the increased value of the property
when so Improved. At present thedis-
Irict is far from a railway and the land
is held iii large blocks, a very insignificant portion even of the bottom lands
being under cultivation, but in the
event of railway and marketing facilities over reaching this valley there is
liable I ii lie an even greater transformation lake place than iu many of the
most favored sections of tho Okanogan

pens the belter will it be for all parties
interested,

Immigrants have been vnt'i'liragod by
the It, ('. Government to settle In ibis
province, yet al, the same time little or
no Information of a practical kind has
ever been given until quite recently to
parties really desirous to do so. Everyone, for instance, who has resided for
any length of time iu the Okanngati
district, knows perfectly wed that for
yours Kick everything but »n encouraging reception has been given the
seeker after local Information at the
land ofB.ce, Although hundreds and
thousands n( acres have since been
purchased and pre-empted the repawns always the same, that there was,
to the knowledge of the officials, "no
land left worth Inking up in the district." Things are certainly belter
now, but slill they might, without
doubt, be improved, on by tho |ssuc of
a map showing the various portions
still vacant iu the districts already partially settled up. This might not suit
the ideas of certain large land owners,

ick Creek mountain,
Mr. Coryell, 0, E„ has made a pre-
liminary survey of the mountain east
of Osiiymw lake for the Government,
with, n view lo ascertaining the cost of
building it. passable waggon road on
the 11. C, side, lie considers ho has

It is certainly time that a game pro-,
tectjou society was formed in the
Okanagan district. This country has
lung been noted as the best sporting
region in British Columbia, but as the
present provincial game laws are very
lax and, never enforced, there is every
likelihood of tho district losing one of
its chief ui tractions. If such an organi
ization were start oil this season a great
deal might lie accomplished in the way
of agitating for fresh legislation, and if
its members were scattered throughout

Now thai (be Lower Okanagan Is
steadily progressing, and Dial tho activity in Ihe various mining camps, especially in 11"' Kettle river seel inn,
points to a i.iill further Increase of
population ;n l he m i r futurt. II would
lie well for the Government lo look a
little ahead in ihe matterof l",':'l appointments fur administrative pur-
hoses, At. Ibe presold time the gold
Commissioner Is tflsq mining recorder,

Nonstable at Rock Crook, At Penticton there is. in addition,n permaiu ully
ret'iiiied sjjicc.jol constable, Those appointments may certainly have been
suitable and sulTieieitl in past years,
but it Is tho generally expressed opinion thai, as tilings now stand, they
could bob? improved mi. Whether a
gold comniisniiiUei Should also lie a
mining reccrdor is a matter for the
Government tu decide, hul it certainly
appears"Ir, be c,.; pnojnply, and .is the
(•ecorder's work at Osoyoos is now
dune In a great extent by the constable,
it would appear only-right that the
party filling Hie dulii-s nhonld hold the
pHlce, and' Mr. Lambly be relieved of
work that be has no lime tu attend to.
* The matter uf appointing an additional deputy register of Hie county
court for the Buck Creek and Kettle

consideration uf the Attorney-Gcner-

unjust that Iho'pedplo uf that district

at Osoyoos before many casus can be
tried, and ibis involves much unnecessary loss of time In local justices who
live at long distances andalsoto the
constables hmployed, i( isto be hoped
that Ibe' Chief' Comiriissionor, when
down in this soctlmi of Ibe country
with a view tu winning votes, will
give these mallei's a little uf bis attention,
public, ui whether it is nol so. We imagine I hat. the case in .lie-linn will
prove a hard nut for ibe Chief Commissioner to decide, especially ui election lime,as hisdeojsiou iniisl uf necessity give offence In one party or the
other.
Wo call the attention of the pen-
pie of the Lower Okanagan In
the fact thai ati effort will be made I his
year to have the agricultural an l mineral products of tho district prbpprly
represented at the annual fall show at
Vernon. This has never been dune before, partly for tho reason that very
few of the residents of this seel inn
were members of the society, but
chiefly because the distance from whicli
the exhibits have to be sent appeared
to bo too great Until the Lower
Okanagan, however, advances sufficiently to be able tu support n separate
institution of this kind it would certainly be shortsighted to ullowmerofo-
cal feeling toprovenl this district being
represented at the nearest exhibition,

Chlncso Case at Osoyoos.
(in Monday, 30th April, .Mr. Mac-
myiiii and Constable Bullock-Webster
atTe i,-d a Chinaman named Lit Kwong,
al ('odd' ciurk, a tributary uf Kettle
river, twenty-five miles above Rock
creek, un a wttrruntchurglug him with
housebreaking at Kcroineos on Huh of
April. Kwong, when arrested, was
jus! complel ing hispreparal ions tu take
in the mountains In evade arrest, and
v, :e provided with ,i loaded, revolver in
his pocket,' which lieeiideavni'ed tu use.
The constables woro fortunate in uiak-
iug this arrest, as word was sent by a
halfbreed to Kwong, by certain Chinese and while residents of Ruck creek,
Unit he was wauled, and Ibe latter
may rest quite assured Unit, un the
authorities made themselves aware of
uf all the particulars uf the plot, it will
not be forgotten.
The prisoner was brought lu Osoyoos
and tried last Friday before Messrs.
Reynolds and Lainliley, .1. P.'s, under
the summary convictions act, un a
charge of having a loaded weapon on
his pel son, when arrested on n war
rant charging him with au Indictable
offence, and was sentenced tu one
month's imprisonment.
He was further tried before Mr.
Lambliy, .1. P., an a charge of housebreaking at KiTcmeiis and stealing
from another celestial, Lee Sing, three
cans uf opium, three dollars in silver
and two gold nuggets on 10th April.
The case was an Interesting one, there
being two Chinese and one Chinook and
Siwnsh interpreter, Ihe principal evi-
tlonco being given hy an Indian in Si-
wash, which was translated into Chinook, I ben from Chinook into English
and from bjnglish into Lliiiii.se. The
well kiimvii Ah See acted as counsel
for ibe prisoner, 'Ibe evidence, purely
circumstantial, wasi to Ibe offeol that
Kwong was seen by an Indian during
Lee Sing's absence tu break upeii Ihe
cabin door with an axe, enter tiie cabin
and then ride away, lie was committed fur trial.

The renowned Mary Smith was in
,canip yesterday and stated that the
dispute as to tbo ownership of Ihe
,Okanagan Smith ranch would be settled definitely within a month, anil she
expected to win the case.
A philosopher who visited this district lately made the sage observation
that there were only three classes of
Jiars, to wit: Ihe liar, tbed—d liar, and
the mining expert. This is rather
rough on mining experts. Tbe lisli
liar can now take a back seat.
Mr. Palmerston, qf Jlouiiikuy Creek,
was in Fairview on Monday and Tuesday attending to tbe survey of the
Last Chance mineral claim, in which
he holds an interest. He reports everything flourishing in his section of the
country, four stages running at present
to Marcus.
Mr. A. Franz left last Saturday for
Loomiston where he will work bis

James Grant was arrested yesterday

disturbed the peace of the camp during the past week.
Mr, W, T. Thompson returned to Fair-
view from Boundary mountain yesterday. While there be purchased fur

He states that lie has received instructions to commence further development work on these claims without delay.
The kluotclnnan who was shot in the
foot has been moved to the Inkauiecp
reserve, She accused a well known
local miner of having shut her and a
warrant was issued fur his arrest. He
managed to cross tho line aud itappeors
now pretty evident that he intends to
keep 00 the other side, While here,
however, he staled openly that as he
tvns perfectly innocent, and had seen
the woman shoot herself, he was perfectly willing to be arrested. The end
of the alfair is not yet.
Mr. W, A, Conklc was in the camp

Kline, of the Golden (Into hotel, who
is acting as secretary, has already secured a large number of Bubscrlpl inns,
and a good purse will be offered fur the
principal events,   Full particulars will
be published in uur next issue. It is

large trout have been captured lately,
We are glad to hear that Mr, R. N.
Dunilas, of Kelowna, and Mr. W. E.
May, uf Vernon, are both able to gel
around again after lung illness.
A road is needed up the north fork
Of Kettle River past the rapids, a mile
and a half beyond Grand Forks, where
several settlers have located recently.
Mr. Mac Thompson lies seriously ill
at Ingram's ranch, and is not expected
to recover. He is an old Montana and
B, C, miner, and seventy-eight years of

Mr. William Postlll, of Duck Lake,
is going shortly to drive his cattle over
to the Bear Creek ranges, where they

half miles above the mouth of Ruck
Creek. Mr, Gibbs is also making great
Improvements on his land on the same

reported from t he Skylark. Those conversant with the high character of this
ore will near with pleasure of the success attending the efforts of Messrs.
Ilulbi'iiiik and Walters to develop their

Though the season is exceptionally
backward, the Kettle River district
and the Lower Okanagan arc looking
lovely just at present, People fond nl'

every mndern convenience.
Mr, Van Horno and pthor (MM!,
made a flying trip uver the S, k O.
during Ibis week. They are nn their
regular annual Inspection tour uver

that whoever saw them up north
pointed, nut ihe Injustice uf the freight
rales iu force on the lake steamer.
Snow has disappeared nil' the majority of the camps un Boundary mountain, and in the Atwood ami White
camps the development work carried
on by Messrs, Wake, Alwniid, Douglas, iMcCurinick, Gome, White and
others shows up well, tho main ledge
being traceable for miles. Although
the ore bodies do nut appear Iu boso
extensive as in tbe Greenwood camp,

the Great Northern crosses the Columbia. This will only he possible during
high wiiI.it for an eigliteen-ineh stern-
wheeler. Last season the river was successfully navigated as far north as
Alma,'about forty utiles north of Oro,
It has been figured that with, a com-
paralively smail expenditure the river
could be made passable as far as
Osoyoos Lake,
Vernon Notes.
(From our own correspondent.)
Vernon, May 7.—Some strange
things have happened this past week.
Our city fathers advertised I'm' grading
and gravelling Barnard avenue, and on
opening the tenders Simmons Bros',
was found to be the lowesl audit was
accepted, They afterwards threw it
up, .Vow, iu jusl ice In all, thi' next
lowest should have received the job,
Wlia! did some nl' the council do?
Why, they peddled It around, anil nut
finding any lakers, decided tu split
the contract, asking fur tenders' to
grade and supply the gravel iu separate tenders, and in their wisdom will
hire men tu spread the gravel themselves. I will send an account of I bo
saving effected by this penny wise ami
pound foolish transaction later on.
As in law and custom in li. ('., where
a mad (unless gazetted) runs through
a ranch, l ho owner is allowed, on making an equally good one. In change it,
This was dune by O, O'Keofo bctweon
here anil Ihe head of the lake,    It is a
well known fad thai a side-hill road is
nearly always the best and must economical in Ibis country. A complalut
was laid beforo our city council hy a
nioii who never drove uver I he road referred In. Nqw, Ibis road i.. not iu Ihe
City uf Vernon at all, and ui', osa corporation, havo nn more tu say in the
mailer than ivo havo abSvtt tho road
from Dog Lake to Kpttlo River. Vet
it was moved and carried Unit we enter
our protest to the Chief Commissioner
of bands mul Works, Some of those
same city fathers wore trying last year
lo force a road through Mr, O'Kcofe's
meadow, in order to boom tho part of
the town they are most interested in,
I would say to them : "enforce the bylaws you have put un the statute
bunks of our corporation; stop building
sidewalks on streets where nn one
lives; buy uur lumber by tender the
next tfme you want any, and don't
build a 0-foot sidewalk and a 4-foot
crossing, Get amove nn, and get an
engine tn protect us from a conflagration. Never mind whether Long bake
water is guild or uut; we can't afford
waterworks at present. Quit fooling
with .Mr. Ellis re flour mill; get sonic
one else, and let us have the mill in
time fur this year's crop."
1 fully agree with the sentiments expressed iu your columns as to our representative in the local house, lie
should he a resident of our riding.
Probably the strongest man in this
end is Donald Graham. Whether he
would accept (be nomination or not I
do nut know, Mr. J. M. Martin, Mr.
T. MoK.'Lainbley and Mr, Ellison were
spoken uf some lime ago, Of course
Mr, Ellison is shelved now, I think a
convention of the taxpayers should be
called and a local candidate chosen In
represent us in the next parliament,
The Government is now nn dial, and
it remains with those who may be fortunate enough to havo their names nn
the voters'list to say who will govern
us during the next fouryoars -Ihe people or Vancouver Island,

Altogether I believe little to ho desired

"The scrub must gol" That is tho
kind of a talk wo should like to see
dinned into the ears of every farmer in

is the kind of on injunction every young
man rising to the farmer's vocation
ought to have deeply impressed upon
his mind every day of his education
until all scrubs have disappeared from

A District Which Should bo Surveyed This

already Battled, up for a distance of
about eight miles from its junction
with the piajn river nnd, according to
(he statements of the few who have
explored this region, there appears to
tie room for about seventy-live more
families up the river. From the tuwn-
sito nf (li'itnil Forks, tin: valley of the
river is very narrow for a distance of
pinup tbpec miles, nt which point, after

(Jie valley of the river maintains an
avepage width of a little under two

thickly timbered with white pine and

We have authority for stating that
since the return of Mr. Bullock-Webster from Loomiston no effort lias been
made to arrest Beegan, nor is it intended take any further action in the
iililHlT,
There ure seven Bottlers up Kcremeos
creek, with room for a few more,
Mr, Frank Hicks, who, for the past
three weeks has, with three other millers, been dning development work for
Captain Adams, pf Muntrcal, on the
hitter's claims on tho Kruger mountain, wns in Fairview this week, He
stated Unit most of the work bud been
dime on the Divide and Diana, two
free milling gold propositions carrying
considerable copper—located by Robert
Cordeck, It is probable that more
work, sufficient to secure a crown
grant, will be done this season. The
Divide is considered the best pf these
claims, and on it there are ty,'o ledges,
each averaging live feet in width. On
one of these a shaft over twenty feet
deep bus been sunk. There urn iilinnt
thirty tuns of ore on the dump. Only
surface work has so far been dope pn
ibe Diana, Captain Adams also owns
four claims in the Black Horse group
nn the same mountain, All these locations are on the north slope. The
majority of the others are on the other
side. Capt. Adams is expected to arrive in Fairview to-day,
