With the arrival of the stage
coaches from Penticton and Hedley and the train from Oroville yesterday, a cold, wet blanket was
spread over the oldtimers' reunion
to be held last evening. It was
confidently expected that the stage
lines from the Upper Valley and
the Okanagan would bring in a
good representation of the old pioneers and that the members of the
organization, all of whom with one
or two exceptions, live in the boundary country, would have backed
up their generous action in giving
this meeting to Keremeos, by attending in numbers and lending life
and meaning to the proceedings.
But such was not the case. Major
Megraw was the sole representative
from the Upper Valley and J. H.
East from the boundary, while the
Okanagan sent nary a one.
At the time of writing (Thursday
afternoon) every thing looks decidedly blue for the success of the occasion, but it remains to be seen
what oldtimers, who have been j
used to adverse conditions all   their
lives, wi:i make of the situation. It The work of connecting the Great

So exaggerated are the reports
of the typhoid cases in Keremeos
that a statement of the facts can
only prove beneficial. The only
new cases to report this week are
Fred Prosser and O. P. Howe, the
latter being a traveling clothing
man who may have contracted the
illness elsewhere, but was taken
sick here and sent to the hospital at
Grand Forks. The total number of
cases to date is six.

with the moving pictures at the

As Viewed by Mr. Ring:.
Among the visitors in the valley
at present is Mr. Wm. Ring, the
guest of Mrs. W. II. Armstrong of
Vancouver and Keremeos. He
finds the climate here so agreeable
that he has decided to make his
visit an extended one, and will remain long enough to see the water
flowing through the new irrigation
system, an engineering feat in
which he evinces considerable interest.
Mr. Ring has favored the Trumpet with some of his impressions of
Keremeos district, and having heen a
large property holder in the Santa
Clara and Sonoma valleys of California, in which country he has
lived for twenty years, as well as an
extensive traveler abroad, his opinion is deserving of considerable
weight.
"Keremeos," says Mr. Ring, "is
to-day in the condition of an unpolished diamond of unknown value,
but when watered and planted will
prove one of the richest gems in
British Columbia. I make this statement after having tested the climate, witnessed the wonderful fertility of the soil, the superiority of the
fruit and the substantial, permanent
nature eif the work of development
now under way.
"The system of irrigation that is
being installed by Mr. C. A. Stoess
is without doubt one ot the most
perfect this country has ever had.
Added to tr-is is an unfailing source
of supply, the grant consideration
in any system of irrigation.
"In visiting the orchards, some
of which have stood the test for 30
or 40 years, the trees hav ing been
brought in over the Hope trail in
the early days, one marvels at their
size and quality and freedom from
pests of any variety. Peach trees,
which if in other countries, would
long ago have been described as fit
only for firewood, still continue to
hear fruit of a quality, quantity, si/e
and flavor that I have never seen
equalled during my 20 years in California; the coloring and flavor of
these peaches belonging exclusively
to the rare climatic conditions existing here.
"It seemed strange to me that I
was not able to reach Keremeos
over the C.P.R.; that it has been
left tor an American company to
open up the way for peop'e to reach
what is undoubtedly one of British
Columbia's richest districts, rich in
mineral wealth and agricultural and
horticultural resources and with a
climate that in all my travels in
Europe, America, Australia and
New Zealand I have not seen surpassed.
"That your own national railway,
bonused by the people of Canada
and supposed to be for the benefit
of Canadians, should have left it for
a foreign company to develop one of
Canada's choicest gardens, is nothing new in railway history.     It was
the Santa Fe that made Los Angeles, in fact California, after it had
been held back for many years by
Collis Huntington of the Southern
Pacific Company.
"With direct railway   connection
the   Similkameen   would only   be a
few hours' run from Vancouver, the
seaport of the Pacific. It would
become a favorite resort in which
the people of the coast cities could
spend their week ends, exchanging
for a time the humidity of the seaboard for the bright warm sunshine.
Lastly, and by 00 means least, it
would make it possible for the
people of the commercial capital of
the province to have their tables
supplied with the choicest of fruits,
peaches and grapes of rare flav or
and coloring, fully matured on tree
and vine, and delivered on the market with the very dew still on them."

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER IH, 1008.
Opening for a Nursery.
With the completion ofthe Keremeos Land Company's big irrigation scheme now well in sight, and
the rapid transformation of the
Lower Similkameen from a pastoral
country into one of Hritish Columbia's most famous fruit districts,
which is sure to follow, there is at
the present time a splendid opening
for a nursery at this point.
The field has been occupied in an
indifferent way by I branch of an
American nursery bul now there appears a strong probability of their
quitting altogether, owing to the
fact that they cannot find ready to
hand just what thev require in the
way of improved land.
What is needed here is a company with the necessary capital and
energy to lake a hand in the development of lhe valley, now onlv commencing, obtain a suitable location
for a nursery (there are many in the
valley) and make the necessary improvements for themselves. For
the company that will do this and
be prepared to supply all demands
of the valley for nursery stock there
is an opportunity for safe and highly profitable investment.
This year saw a considerable
acreage planted and it was necessary to bring in trees from the outside. What will it be in a few-
years' time r1
We are aware of the   widespread
practise of hushing up such   things
but it never succeeds   in  deceiving
j anyone.     Keremeos  is   not   unique
in regard to its visitation   of fever.
j Very few young towns are exempt
j but  the  conditions  which   are res-
i ponsible are  generally   well   within
the  control   of  the residents  ot   a
place.
Once more let us urge upon our
citizens their individual responsibility in observing proper sanitary
precautions and the necessity for
providing for general use a supply
of water for domestic purposes that
is above suspicion. In this connection it may be said that the natural
source of supply would appear to be
from the creek on the Webster estate. It is convenient and there is
no possible chance of pollution of
the source above. We do not
maintain that the time is ripe for
such a system, but we are getting
information as to the cost and will
let our readers know in due course.
In the meantime provision should
be made for present needs.
Sepeaking at a political meeting
in Vancouver last week, W. W.
Mc Innis, liberal candidate, remarked that the coast to Kootenay railroad would bring the Similkameen
valley within five hours distance of
Vancouver instead of three days as
at present.
We are told that it is poor policy
to publish the fact that we have
typhoid in town; that it will deter
people from coming here to make
their homes; that in other towns the
press don't do it; that it would he
much better to sit mum, etc. etc.
Stuff and rubbish. It is the
people of Keremeos who have set at
defiance the most elementary laws
of sanitation, who use stagnant
surface water for domestic purposes
regardless of Ihe impurities it contains, and neglect other equally important precautions for health, who
are doing the town a positive injury, and it is in the hope of stirring
them into some sort of acl ion aiul
securing a better condition ol affairs that we have taken the mat letup.
There is not one good reason
why Keremeos should not be one of
the healthiest places in the province!
there are many why it should. Hut
its citizens will find that it will be
much better in the end lo face the
situation openly and squarely than
to sit passive and depend upon concealment ot the facts to maintain
our fair name abroad.

Mr. L, Holman had on exhibition
on Saturday a tobacco plant 8 feet
hifjh, which had made all its growth
from the seedling in 6 weeks. He
has another fully a foot higher
which he is saving for the fall fair.
The plants were grown under canvas, the plan advocated by Mr. Felix Charlan, the tobacco expert of
the Dominion government, and
which has proved very successful
here. Many of the leaves grown
under this system measure 32 inches in width by 40 inches in length,
and are characterised by remarkably line ribs, meaning a small proportion of waste.—Kelowna Courier.
On Saturday evening Chief of
Police Kdvvards and Constable Bailie, accompanied by Special Constables Kerr and Quin, made a raid
on the premises across the creek,
back of the skating rink, used as a
house of ill-fame, and arrested the
keeper and two inmates, taking the
names of several parties present to
be used as evidence, if necessary.
The case came up for trial yesterday, but was adjourned until Friday-
next, the prisoners being allowed
out on bail —Vernon Okanagan.

There is one gentleman running
in the present contest whose election seems to be universally conceited
and that candidate is Mr. Martin
Burrell in Vale-Cariboo. Mr. Burrell is one of the most polished
speakers in Canada, and his election
would add greatly to the debating
strength of the House of Commons.

More interesting than his probable appearance as Dominion parliamentary candidate will be the debut
of Mr. Joseph Martin as plaintiff in
a law suit in the supreme court. A
writ has been entered and served
on the C.P.R. claiming damages
for assault on Sept. 4. This was
the lively occasion when one of the
C. P. R.'s big police roughly handled the portly advocate as he was
making his way on the wharf to the
Victoria boat, then discharging her
passengers. He was supposed to
be on forbidden space and a scuffle
followed. Msssrs. Burns and Wai- ■
kern have heen instructed by Mr.
