Klin Island Deal Off and «.T. P.
j  Will Not Build West for Years.
Tho Vanconver Worhl on Tuesday pnblisheil the startling announcement that the deal for the
Kiiit-n Island terminus between
ItheG. T, P. and the Federal gov-
eminent had been deolared off ami >
, that owing to dlffloulties of finance
the ti. T. P, would not build west|
■ from Edmonton forseyernl years.
I In tho nieantinii! the Canadian
Northern, backed by a strong American syndicate, will push their
i line into Port Simpson.
Since the publication of this re-
' port, however, a denial has been
Imade by Sir Wilfrid Lanrier, who
! slates that the Kaien Island ileal
! has not been declared off, also from
' F. W. Morse, vice president of the
}G. T. P.,sating that the road will
j be completed within th 3 time called
j for injthe contract,
The V. V. ft E. Progressing.
Many of our readers are interest-
iia the construction of  the  Gretit
Northern Railway into the Similk-
nuieen.     The  latest   information
nvnil able concerning the new rout'
is that construction work is being
pushed forward as rapidly as possible.   Both day and night gangs
; are being employed and the nuni-
' ber of men  has  been largely in-
J creased.   Every effort is being put
forth to facilitate the work and it
j is expected that the grnding and
; tunneling  will   be  completed  to
, KeremeoB by .Tune 1st.   If this is
I accqinpJiBhed the steel should be
laid soon after and the road open
for traffic by early autumn.   Mr.
White, who is in  charge  of  the
i work at Midway, is doing all in his
i power to speedily finish the road.
It is expected that the  C. P. R.
will start  grading  on  their  line
! from Midway  west  in  the  near
'.future.
The Switzerland of Canada.
C. B. Schmidt, the Pueblo agricultural expert who wits commissioned to examine and report upon
the Oknnngim district for the
Midway & Vernon Railway, has
written n letter to Trice .Ellison.
M, P. P., in which he gives this
province great praise, from which
the following is extracted:
"If there is a Switzerland to be
found on this continent, it is
British Columbia, with its mountains, its lakes and streams, its
navigation and its climate, only it
is ten times larger than Switzerland, nnd has in nddittion to scenery- which practically constitutes
the only resources of Switzerland—
a great variety of tangible resources, which make the country
attractive, not only to the tourists
but also to the investor, the merchant, the manufacturer and the
farmer. The magnificent foresls
of merchantable timber, the prolific soil of its valleys and mountain slopes, the undeveloped
wealth in precious minerals and of
bnser metals, the wealth of sea and
fresh water fish, and the great ad-
vantage of its geographical location nnd harbor facilities for the
coast and orientnl trades. In short
British Columbia, in my opinion,
holds within its lap such a future
of affluence and international influ-
encn which only the most sanguine
can concieve for a new country.
I envy her people and all those
who may embrace the opportpnity
to anticipate and participate in
the future of British Columbia.
Would Iwere one of them,"

assured. The arrangements are already being made for beginning
work on a new and modern boat to

be included in the municipality,
some sixty persons being present.
Mr. Wright addressed the meeting
in a very comperhensive statement
of the experience of the ratepayers
of Spallumcheen, paying particular
attention to the matter of finances,
the assessment, collection and expenditure of the local taxes. The
many questions put by those in
attendance showed a keen interest
in affairs of local interest. Before
the close of the meeting it was
unanimously voted that the residents of the proposed municipality
apply to the government for incorporation, and . arrangements were
made for the «i*culation of the
necessary petitions.
The service, according to the ritual
of the Anglican church, was made
especially interesting and pleasing
because of its being wholly choral.

Armstrong & Leverington.
The ADVANCE and Free Press for
evening proved an exceptionally
gocil success, and too itun-li credit
cannot well be given the members
of the company and Mr. Lapworth
fur the excellent matter in which
the play was presented.
The play itself is one full of interest throughout and with excellent scenery so fittingly provided
for each scene   it at ntiee   proved
very popular with the audience.
The dramatization is that of  it
prosperous rttrnlite whose wile lie-
oauseof the Buddeu acquirement
of wealth aspires to the alluring
life of the city, where sin- may be
enabled to enj ly the pleasures of
society. As is often the case the
coveted society of the city Bought
by the would-be fashionable wife
and mother against the desires of
the husband and daughter, the
"Mascot", does not prove so sue
cessful as hoped and the speculation of Caleb Baldwin, together
with the doings of tlie influential
and. once jilted. Ben Flood, bring
abont the financial ruin of the
family and they are finally glad to
return to the old homestead where
their happiness is again  restored.
The leading role, that of Mr. and
Mrs. Baldwin, was played by W.
Wolfenden and Mrs. Violet Dickie,
both of whom did great credit to
their respective parts. Mrs. Dickie
especially carried ber part well
through all the varying stages of
her aspiring position and later as
the reconciled woman of the farm.
In Nan. the father's ever present
Mascot, Miss Ruth Asson proved
herself most efficient in her capacity as the confidential adviser of
her father and the manner in which
she scorned the attentions of the
stammering English dude, to whom
her mother sought to marry her, in
order to remain true to an early
lover of their rural home.
Mrs. Van Spread, the New York
Society Belle, a difficult part, was
filled by Miss Opal Fisher. The
captivating widow, Jehonnet. was
also impersonated by her. in which
part she made a splendid appearance.
Ben Flood, at first the tramp and
later the prosperous New York
financier, was ably taken by Joe
McDonald, who made a strong
hit with the audience in the manner in which he acquitted himself
in this role.
The stammering English dude,
the would-be suitor of Miss Nan-
nette, was taken by R. H. Hill
nnd was very well presented,
(). MePherson is deserving of
special mention for the manner in
which he filled the part of Deacon
Smartweed, and while all the parts
were well plaped, it is perhaps only fair to say that -Mr. MePherson
ably proved himself to be the right
person in the right place and fulfilled his role the best of any member of the troupe. His attentions
to the widow and his rustic manner on the occasion of his visit to
the city, together with his cautious
regard for "what'd the parson say"
provokes! the hearty applause of
the audience.
Arthur Sherwood, the lawyer's
clerk, and the gallant lover of Nan.
was taken by Jus. Held and the
reputation of the troupe well bus-
tnined by the manner in which he
fulfilled his role.
Dr. Windsall and the slippery
lawyer. Uriah Fox, were supplied
respectively by A. ti. Armitage
and R. W. Kelly. While the crit-
icism has since been mnde thai
both appeared too much simply as
their everyday selves, their parts
were admirably suited to them anil
we doubt if two amateurs could
have been found to do better justice to these two parts of the caste.
The humor of the play was provided by the Inimitable backwoods
lad, Jimsey, represented by J. g.
Asson in a truly humorous anil bi -
coming manner,
