Anticipating the completion of

closed his livery barn, taking the
horses and outfit over to his ranch

stable until recently, intends to go
to the Coast.
The herds of cattle have been
brought down from the summer
ranges, arriving at the Lowe and
Daly ranches on Monday. Thos.
Daly left yesterday for Greenwood
with a bunch of 75. The cattle are
in the pink of condition, the pasture
this summer having been exceptionally good, owing to the heavy rainfall in May and June.
Maurice Daly's experimental turn
Of mind involved him in a ralher
serious accident last week. He
was concocting a steam engine, one
of the ingredients of which was a
fruit can, and was attempting to affix a whistle to the can, when the
steam burst out and severely scalded his face. Beyond the pain and
the necessity of going blindfolded a
few days, it is hoped there will be
no lasting ill effects. Maurice will
probably take a whirl at a flying
machine next.
The volume   of imports at the i And the Boring of Hope Tunnel
outport of Keremeos for the first
half of the fiscal year 1909-10 shows
a large increase over the corresponding period last year—in fact it
is well on to twice as much for the
half year as it was for the whole of
the previous year. This of course
is not a normal increase; it is accounted for to a considerable degree by importations for railway
construction work. But aside from
that there is a marked increase in
the inflow of ordinary merchandise.
The actual outlay of money at
Keremeos for U.S. goods alone, for
half a year less two weeks, has
been $116,325.    The figures are:

A party of G. N. R. surveyors is
outfitting this week and taking the
field ahove Princeton. The party,
numbering about sixteen, is headed
by C. F. Russell of Spokane, who
will have charge of the work on the
ground, under the general direction
of Engineer Kennedy. Their sphere
of operations will be along the line
of the old survey, starting at the
Coquahalla summit, down the Cold-
water across Otter Creek summit,
and down Otter Creek and the Similkameen; the object of starting at
the summit being to get in as much
work as possible this season. On
the old survey the greatest grade on
this side of the summit is 1 per cent.
It will be the aim of this party to
j get a maximum grade of 0.8 per
I cent, it it can be done without too
much additional expense.

The London Morning Post sa\ s :
"An entertainment of an iiuusii.il
kind was provided at tho Sioinway
Hall last evening by Miss E. Pauline Johnson, who is descended from
a former member of the Iroquois
nation of Red Indians, from wIi.mii
she derives her native name of
Tekahionwake, recited, or rather
enacted, a number of Indian stories
of which she is the author. These
little pieces are powerfully descriptive and they gain considerably by
lhe admirable manner in which they
are interpreted. Miss Johnson has
a dramatic manner, and she carries
out her work with the aid of much
picturesque, natural, and remarkably effective gesture."
could be done without much inconvenience, and from the evident intention of the company to push the
line it would seem probable that an
attack on the rock work will be
made in the winter.
Fatal Accident
Peter Oleson, a cableman on one
of the ballasting trains on the construction work, fell under the wheels
of the train on Wednesday morning
about 10 o'clock, and was injured
so that he died a few hours later.
One of his duties was io pull a
lever which causes the side doors of
the cars to open and allow the
gravel to spill. While pulling the
lever his hand slipped and he fell so
that his foot was caught under a
wheel, and the wheel crushed his
leg from foot to knee. Dr. McEwen was summoned, but before
he arrived the man had died, probably from shock as much as from
the actual injury. Deceased was a
steady and reliable man, and accustomed to the work, having been on
the same job in thc former construction period.
Governor Johnson of  Minnesota
died on Tuesday. FAIRVIEW
Major Megraw, Hedley, J. R.
Jackson, Midway, and Frank Richter, Keremeos, were the cream of
the Old-timers' gathering at Fair-
view on the night of Friday, Sept.
17th. The attendance of the duly
qualified members was not up to
the usual mark. The Fairview
members with their friends brought
the number at the banquet to a
score or more. The tables were
prepared in Host Jones'best style,
and the refreshments were
thoroughly enjoyed. The old
stories of pioneer life in British
Columbia were given with fresh
enthusiasm, and a very pleasant
evening was spent. The next reunion of the Old-timers will be held
at Greenwood. Mr. Barcelo and
son were a day late for the banquet,
but spent a pleasant day in town,
returning to Keremeos on   Sunday.
The Rev. Mr. Cameron on Sunday intimated that until supply
could be sent for Fairview and .Okanagan Falls by the Presbytery,
he would hold occasional Sunday
morning services at these places.
Work is making satisfactory
progress in the public school, and
the average attendance, 23, is encouraging.
After a strenuous battle with the
bush fire in the Mountain southwest of Boone's ranch it was under
control. Smoke is still in evidence
but the danger line is past.
The :;ale of last week made havoc
of the fruit. The windfalls were
many and the best pears were
carried away.
Part of the metal covering of the
cyanide building at the Stemwinder
was removed by a purchaser. It is
evident that the time for the reopening of this mine is not near.
James Grant, Marron Valley,aired
his political grievances here last
week. He struck a Stonewall Jackson and was an easy victim. If
Jim would talk less his neighbors in
the Marron Valley would be likely
to fare better.
Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Legatt of
Midway registered at the Golden
Gate on Sunday evening. Mr.
Leggatt after attending to water
right business at the Land Office
returned   to   Oroville  on    Monday
The telephone line between Fair-
view and Keremeos will soon be on
the bum unless some attention is
given to it. Half a dozen poles are
down, many are leaning over the
trail at an angle of 45 degrees, and
the road is not safe.
Hugh Graham has fine peaches
growing on his ranch here without
irrigation. They are of good size
and of the best B.C. flavour.
Patton & Sons report no loss of
the fruit trees planted by them last
year. Careful cultivation of the
soil without irrigation carried them
through their second year.

Career of Judge Spinks.
| Kamloops Standard.]
The retirement from the bench of
His Honor Judge William Ward
Spinks marks the removal of one
ofthe pioneers of Kamloops. In
failing health for the past four or
five years, Judge Spinks has found
it necessary to lay down his judicial
duties and to seek the salubrious
climate of Pasadena, Cal., for the
remainder of his life.
It was early in the year of 1884
when Judge Spinks first came to
Kamloops to practice law. There
were but fifty white people here at
that time and the Indians were considerably stronger in number than
they are today. He was the first
lawyer in the upper country east of
the coast and his practice extended
over an immense district.
Five years after his coming he
was appointed to the bench as county judge—a position which he has
held for twenty years with honor to
himself and the fullest measure of
satisfaction to the public. He was
the first judge in the upper country
on the county bench and his judicial
district gave him jurisdiction over
all the interior.
Some idea of the hardships and
difficulties which he encountered in
pursuit of his duties can be gained
when it is known that he travelled
on horseback over a circuit extending 600 miles from Kamloops
through the south country to Nicola,
Princeton, Keremeos, Fairview,
Camp McKinney, Midway, Grand
Forks and over the divide into
Rossland and back by way of Penticton and the Okanagan valley.
Judge Spinks is held in the highest esteem by the bar as well as the
general public. He was notable
for his kindly and courteous demeanour on the bench and his judgments
always displayed good sound sense
and were based on equity.
His resignation, which has been
in the hands ofthe department for
some time past, takes effect at the
close of the present judicial year in
December, though His Honor has
presided at his last court in Kamloops.
At the city council last night
Mayor Robinson took advantage of
the opportunity to pay tribute to the
retiring judge. "As an old resident
of Kamloops and as a pioneer the
citizens of Kamloops will deeply regret Judge Spinks' retirement from
the bench," observed His Worship.
"He leaves the bench in the highest
esteem of the public for he has discharged the onerous duties devolving upon him with eminent satisfaction." A brief review of the notable career moulded by His Honor
and Mayor Robinson closed with a
well expressed wish that in Pasadena Judge Spinks would find renewed health and that he would
long be spared to enjoy the remaining years of his life.

That the C.P.R. Will Not Build
Over Hope Mountains
"Will the C.P.R. establish a
more direct route to the Coast Irom
the Kootenays as soon as practicable
that is, when surveys are made?"
was the query made of Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, president ofthe C.P.
R., on his arrival in Vancouver on
a trip of inspection to the Coast.
Sir Thomas replied as soon as
practicable, which meant when the
right grade was found, the company
would be prepared to push through
the line to Vancouver. "The project will mean much for both the
development of the Kootenays and
Vancouver," he said, "as it will
mean quicker and cheaper transit of
goods, since the grades when decided upon will be lower than those
ot the northerly route. A continuation of the Crow's Nest line from
Midway to Nicola may become a
live issue in the future but it has
not been decided upon. There are
many surveys being made, but more
will have to be made before we can
decide on the proper route."
Replying to other queries Shaughnessy said his road had no thought
of building over Hope mountains.
Mentioning Hill's eight mile tunnel
scheme, he said his line preferred
to keep in the open. When the
C.P.R. line from the Houndary *>al
built it would be by a direct route."
Vancouver should naturally be
the distributing depot for the entire
upper country and this idea was
being taken into Bt count. Shaughnessy definitely promised that as
soon as the tourist rush was over
steps would be taken to reconstruct
the Vancouver hotel on a magnificent scale, the scheme taking two
years to carry out.
He said that the electrification of
the mountain lines had been taken
up only so far as securing data was
concerned. Carrying out the idea
was far from imminent. There
were no new developments in the
question of the Kootenay Central
from Golden to Fort Steele. After
stating that it was not the intention
of the company to rebuild the Vancouver depot, Shaughnessy said:
"We have other matters of more
vital importance to attend to in
British Columbia. Vancouver will
share in most of these, but to disclosure them al this juncture would
be premature."
On ocean traffic he said the question of a better service on the Pacific was being given consideration,
through removing the Atlantic Empresses to that line. The policy the
company was entering was to bid
for the Mexican trade. Concerning
the grain trade via the Pacific route
Shaughnessy said that business
would follow the easiest line. Provision had been made for a sacking
plant at Vancouver as well as for
storage but the trade was not coming that way.
Vice-president   Whyte   said   that
the company was giving proportionate rates to Vancouver as to
Fort William. He believed grain
was not coming this way because
the cost of taking from Calgary to
Liverpool by the Tehuantepec route
or around the Horn was ten cents a
bushel dearer than by the eastern
route. The latter cost he figured
out at 24.24 cents per bushel, as
against 34.45 by Vancouver.

A Sinister Proposal.
Thp KpwniMK ChrnniHp !run away from *°°d wages and de"
me neremeos vnroniue.|centtreatment   At any ratc the
condition is now that the working
gangs are very short-handed, and
"feelers" are thrown out that are
designed to prepare the way for a
relaxation of the fair-wage and
white-labor clauses of the company's
agreement, and the importation of
coolie labor on a large scale—probably Japanese. They would need
to be landed direct at Prince Rupert, for to land them at Vancouver
would precipitate civil strife and international complications.
The Trades and Labor Council
of Vancouver, scenting danger and
speaking for labor in the west,
has telegraphed a vehement protest
to Sir Wilfrid. "We desire to
notify your government," it says,
"that we will not peacefully stand
for the proposed further wholesale importation of Oriental labor into this
province at the behest of merciless,
profit-seeking railway contractors.
If the working conditions were made
fit for animals, there are lots of
available jobless men in Canada.
We demand fulfilment of election
promises and such as will disprove
that government is but the executive committee for corporate interests. Better no G.T. P. than to
add to the huge non-voting Oriental
population which already controls
the fishing and lumbering resources
of this province. Further importations will aggravate a serious
menace. We refuse to be reduced
to an Oriental standard of living.
Sir Wilfrid is naturally incensed
al the tone of this message. He
replies: "Quite disregarding the
offensive language, I beg to inform
you that no request has been made
to this government by anybody for
the importation of Asiatic labor."
This of course does nothing to clear
the air. It gives no indication of
the government's intentions.     Anx-
If it is true that the G. T. P. contemplate asking for permission to
import Oriental labor to build the
western section of their line—and
all the indications seem to point
that way—-then there are troublous
times in store for British Columbia
in the near future. From the beginning of the G. T. P. project—in
fact since before it was begun—the
company has followed a consistent
policy of asking for concessions at
every point, and it would only be in
line with that policy to include free
trade in labor in their list of demands. They have good ground
for expecting that it would be granted. Sir Wilfrid has shown every
disposition to be compliant with
them on other points. He lias
shown every disposition to over-ride
the people's determination to make
this province a white man's country.
He has little to lose in the way ot
immediate political support, for his
following from this province is next
to nothing, and iiis tollowers in the
east are apparently too Mctlonal in
their outlook to be made tO understand by anything -.hort of a cataclysm that the Oriental question is
a vital national question. On the
other hand Sir Wilfrid is a man of
great political sagacity and has
something of a statesman's breadth
of vision, and it may be hoped lhat
he will hesitate to take a step which
might  lead  to  the  gravest  conse- j jety will prevail until   the  expected

for their men that the latter are simply driven away, thus providing a
pretext for representing that the

It is not likely that any such Me-
phistophelian policy has been pursued. But neither can the contractors' claim be very well accepted, that they cannot gtt •ftOUftl
white men even with high WWgm
and good conditions. Laborers in
plenty have poured into Prince Rupert, eager and willing to work,
and after trying it have escaped as
soon as they could make their way
out. A constant stream of work-
seekers went in, meeting as constant a stream of "broke" and disgusted men coming out. It is all
very well to say that they were hard
to please, but that explanation is
not convincing. Canadian railway
laborers are not afraid of necessary
hardships, and are not the  men  to
While there seems to be no
ground for the rumors, so persistently circulated, that a provincial
election may he expected this fall,
there is one thing that no person
who lakes an interest in the affairs
of the province should neglect. That
is lo see that he is registered as a
voter. There must be a large number of qualified voters in this district, whose names are not yet on
the register. Such parties should
remember that the next Court of
Revision is held on Monday, November first, and that the Act requires that the names of those making application shall be in the hands
of the Registrar thirty days before
this court is held. The qualifications for a voter in this province are
that he be a British subject, 21 years
of age, a resident of the province
for six months, and a resident of
the electoral district for one month
at least.

W. A. Robertson, of Queen
Charlotte Islands, says the present
summer is the rainiest he   has   ever
known there in 25 years. "Just to
give you an idea of how it rained,"
he says, "1 may tell you that there
were only six days out of seventy
that it did not rain—and even then
it was cloudy and threatening. I
never saw such weather in my life,
and 1 hope I never shall again. Of
course it invariably rains there to
some extent in the summer, but
there has been no season on record
as bad as this one."
The new Hriand Ministry in
France ia totally opposed to emigration from that country tt> Canada, as evidenced by a circular addressed to the mayors and sub-prefects in the Republic, asking them
to do all in their power to prevedt
people from coming here. The circular says that clerks meet with all
kinds of hardships in Canada if they
cannot speak English, and manual
labor of the rudest kind is the only
work to be had. The climate of
Canada is emphasized as being a redoubtable enemy to the agricultural
class, and the scarcity of roads and
transportation facilities is dwelt upon. The official circular urges that
steps should be taken to stay the
campaign being waged to induce
the French to come to Canada.
A number of old friends of Judge
Spinks gathered at the court house
chambers in Vernon and presented
him with a sterling silver tea service on the occasion of his retirement from the bench. Price Ellison, who made the address, remarked that Judge Spinks' long
term of service had been an
arduous one, as in old days when
his circuit covered the large unsettled districts of Vale and Kootenav he had ridden more miles than
all the other judges in British Columbia put together, lu the course
of his reply the Judge observed that
some of his trips on horseback had
been nearly six hundred miles in
length, and it had been necessary
for a judge in those days to be a
good horseman whether he was a
good lawyer or not.

great development contracts, embracing 15,(XK) acres of breaking,
u ir« being undertaken. The total
SmOttOt paid lor this work by nonresident landowners is over $200,-
! (XX). Twwty steam and gasoline
plows did the major portion of the
breaking, but the demand for plowing is so keen that at least twenty
additional power-plows are being
purchased by those desiring to assist in next year's development. In
1910 the development department
will handle at least 25,000 acres.
The work undertaken is principally
breaking, disking and seeding; but
Ihe company will also erect fences,
drill wells, build barns and houses
and even secure the necessary horses and implements that settlers
may require.

We   are   having  grand   weather
right along.     It   is no  longer too
hot for outdoor work, but just  the
right kind of weather  for  outdoor
enjoyment,  with   no  drawbacks  in
the shape of mosquitos, high winds
or dusty roads, for all these are absent; while the bright sunshine,  the
azure sky, the cooling ripple of the
faint but welcome  breeze,   and   the
varied tints of  the   autumn   panorama all tend  to  make  existence  a
real undiluted pleasure and   elevate
the senses of the average individual,
like the smell of old   wine  just   uncorked after fifty years of  ripening.
Whatever may   be  the  drawbacks
encountered by dwellers in the Similkameen the weather is not   among
them, for it can hardly  be   excelled
in any   other   section   of  the   habitable globe.

but also in trotting out their hobbies and reminiscences of the past.

heart as they were fifty years ago.

Billy Duer returned home last

accompanied by something more

R. G. Sidley of Sidley writes to
the Chronicle to the effect that the
circumstances surrounding the seizure of Stanton's teams were incorrectly stated in the item that appeared in our last issue. As to
that, we can only say that our Information was from parties directly

there was no reason for doubting
that thev had it right. If they misstated it an injustice has been done CLEANED AND PRESSED
