iers' Reunion,
cr I	
r^pur ilQuks are due to Mr. J. R.
JOTksonJMipway, secretary of the
Kettle ft«V#r and South Okanagan
Pioneers Mociety, for an   invitation
attei)<Ktheir annual reunion at the
l«I Hotel,Keremeos, on Thursday next, Sept. 17th.
This is the first time the reunion
has been called for Keremeos and
no doubt the oldtimers of this valley will fully appreciate the honor
and will all be on hand to welcome
their old tilicums ofthe early days
and do what they can to make their
visit here a pleasant one.
There has been some confusion in
regard to the date of the reunion,
which, however, is to be held on
Thursday, Sept. 17th. The business meeting is called tor five o'clock
and the banquet for seven.
As regards eligibility for membership, and the right to be present at these reunions, all that ap-
pears to be required is a residence
of twelve years in the district included in the Kettle river and south
Okanagan (including the Similka-!
meen) valleys. We understand
that formerly a residence prior to
the high water in 1894 was required
but that has since been extended to
include those who came in in '96 or
prior. The Trumpet extends a note
of welcome to the oldtimers and
trusts that their meeting at Keremeos will be one of unalloyed happiness.
Work on the Ditch.
E. L Bogart and his gang of
workmen are now busily engaged
putting in the first stretch of pipe
for the big irrigation ditch. They
have pitched catnp at a spot convenient to their work about a mile and
a half above town. Mr. Bogart
expects to be joined this week by
his brother, who has been laid up
with an injured eye.
The contract for Ihe bridge across
the river has been closed with Harry
Swan, and it is expected pile driving will be commenced this week.
The gang of Italians, engaged
across the river tin the reserve, are
rapidly pushing the ditch to the
point of intake. There remains a
considerable stretch, however, yet
to be done on the reserve on this
side of the river.. While a good
deal of it should Le comparatively
easy there are places where it will
be slow going and additional force
will be necessary lo complete it by
the end of November.
W. J. Ryan, the man who ran
amuck at the Model livery stable
last week, has demanded a speedy
trial. His case will be heard at
VemOfl in the near future.
Labor Day at Hedley.
All trails led to Hedley on Monday. It was the centre of attraction for the Similkameen and even
beyond. In the program of sports
and entertainment arranged by an
energetic celebration committee
there was something to attract
everyone. Keremeos was practically deserted for two days by all
who could possibly get away and
could find means of conveyance to
the neighboring town.
The baseball tournament and
horse racing were the features of
the celebration. In the former a
purse of $200 was put up for competition and then $300 was spent in
bringing in players from Spokane
and elsewhere to keep the money in
Hedley. In the horse races every
event had a large field and was
keenly contested.
Of the winners from Keremeos
Hans Richter with Spanker got
third money in the open race, first
in the pony race with McGinty and
first in the boys' race with Black
Beauty, Charlie Allison up. In the
ladies' race May Smitheran took
first, Miss Everett second and Florence Sinclair third.
In the cowboys' race Tommy
Terabasket with two entries captured first and second. Charley
Shuttleworth of Okanagan Falls did
well with his roan, winning the
matched race against Frank Royer
and taking first in the saddle race.
Garrison of Penticton won the big
money in the open event.
At the traps Hedley again gave
evidence of their prowess, and in
competition with Fairview retained
the Shatford cup won at Keremeos
on the 24th. The highest individual score was made by F. H. French
with 20 out of a possible 25. Ed.
Richter was second with 19, while
four contestants were tied for third
with 18 each. In the shoot off Harris won out.
Considerable interest centered in
the rock drilling contest.for which a
big purse had been hung up. In
this, Tim tirilTin and Billy Trembly
were the winners, though their success was possibly due as much to
the hard luck of their opponents in
the breaking of drills as to any
prowess on their own part.
In baseball it was easy picking
for Hedley's Hired Help. They
won the first game from Princeton
on Monday afternoon by a score of
6-0 and on Tuesday administered
an even worse drubbing to the ambitious Nighthawkers, defeating
them 7-0. For two days Hedley
could boast of having a real ball
The dance given in Fraternity
Hall   on   the  evening  of the   first
day's celebration was a decided
success hut with a larger hall would
have been much more enjoyable.
Up The Ashnola.
A party consisting of W. H. Stover, Arthur and Albert Mattice and
Jack Bouillard left here on Saturday on a hunting, fishing and exploring trip up the Ashnola. They
were driven as far as the canyon
from where they intended making
the rest of the trip on foot; their
camping outfit being carried on a
pack horse. Mr. Bouillard has received word from the Oregon Nursery Co. to report at Salem, in consequence of which the party were
timing themselves to get back today. Mr. Stover has heard that
away up among the clouds, on the
peak of one ofthe higher mountains
of the Ashnola watershed, reposes
an extinct volcano, and despite his
three score years and ten, intends
to explore for himself. He undertook the difficult feat of scaling the
lofty heights with as much energy
and pleasurable anticipation as a
youth of twenty. We hope to present to our readers a full account of
the trip in Mr. Stover's own dashing narrative. They anticipated some excellent sport with rod
and gun.
Later.—The party returned o.i
Tuesday evening, carrying their
game in their vest pockets, and
without the crater of the extinct
volcano. Jack Bouillard's haste to
get off to Salem is given out as the
reason for the abbreviated trip, but
we have heard it whispered that the
real reason is that the pace set by
J. W. in climbing the hills was too
strenuous for the other members e>f
the party.
Three gentlemen, representing
the express department of the C.
P. R were in Keremeos on Tuesday and after a brief survey of the
valley left via Penticton. We understand that the object of this trip
was to gain some idea ofthe amount
of shipping from ihis point, and if
possible divert it over the C. P. R.
lines via Midway.
Two more cases of typhoid de\ eloped during the past week Mrs.
P. Marks and R. H. Carmichael.
Mr. Carmichael was taken ill on
Sunday and on Monday left for the
hospital at Grand Forks, being accompanied as far as Oroville by
J. J. Armstrong and all the way by
Mike Costello. Mrs. Marks is
sharing a room with Mrs. Keeler
over the restaurant, which is temporarily closed. Moth are doing
well under lhe skilful nursing of
Mrs. Saunders. Mr. Meausette is
making favorable progress and his
little daughter is now  convalescent. Box Social.
The following program was rendered at the box social given at the
lown hall on Friday evening by the
ladies of the Church Aid Society.
It would be far from truthful to say
that all the numbers were rendered
in faultless style, but the large audience that had turned out was not
in a critical mood and the program
was thoroughly enjoyed from start
to finish, everyone taking part (even
lo Pete in the role of conductor) receiving liberal applause.
Instrumental duet, Mrs. Frith
and Miss I.owndes; dialogue, "Out
All Around"; vocal duet, Mrs. Frith
and Mrs. Brown; recitation, Miss
Oriel Meausette; solo, "There let
me Rest," Mr. Milburn; recitation,
Mrs. Pairell; dialogue, "Personating Elders;" solo, "The Swallows,"
Mrs. Hrown, encore, "Play in Your
Own Back Yard"; recitation, Mrs.
Carl; dialogue, "Trip to Chicago."
Rev. Mr. Cameron performed the
duties of chairman in happy style
and at the conclusion of the program called upon Mr. Menary to
auction off the brilliant array of
lunch boxes provided by the ladies.
While less fluent than most auctioneers we have listened to, Mr. Menary proved effective in getting the
coin as evidenced by the net receipt
of $63.05. This amount was increased by $2.00 hv little Helen
Richter from the sale of flowers.
Mrs. Frith and Miss I.owndes
performed the difficult task of selecting the prize-winning boxes and
made their award as follows : 1st,
Miss Jessie Phelps; 2nd, Miss Bessie Richter; 3rd, Miss Annie Moon-
lhe bidding throughout was animated and when a gentleman wanted to partake of the refreshments
provided by a certain young lady in

The box social over and the
MO** ready lo disperse, those, so
disposed, commenced arrangements
to wind up the evening with an impromptu dance, and il was rather
Unfortunate thai the scruples of a
few should have prevented their
doing sii, as many ol those who attended the function and spent their,
money freely, were inclined to think |
that it was, lo say the least, rather
inconsiderate treatment.
Abdul A/iz, Sultan ol Morocco,
has given up the struggle and relinquished the throne to his usurping
kinsman, Mulai llafid. In the
words of the poet, Abdul Aziz becomes Abdul as was.
Arthur Hickling, who has large
coal interests at Princeton, passed
through here on Friday on his way
up the valley. Mr. Hickling is impatient at the slow progress lhe V.
N. & E. is making in connecting
Princeton with the outside and thereby paving lhe way fa development
ofthe coal industry al thai point.
Quiet on the Shuswap.
Victoria, Sept. 5. -The difficulty
with the Indians at Salmon Arm
has been settled by superintendent
of provincial police, Hussey, without appeal to force, and a dangerous situation has been averted
through the tact and skillful handling of the Indians by the veteran
police officer.
Rescuing those of their tribe who
were sent to jail for an infraction of
the game laws, the Indians of the
district then assumed a threatening
attitude. Chief Hussey was sent
out by the government to quiet the
disturbances aud on his approach
the Indians fled. He sent out runners informing them that they must
come in and hold a pow-wow, and
such was their confidence in him
that the delinquents came. As a
result of the conference, the chiefs
have agreed to pay a fine, the
braves implicated in the rescue
have surrendered themselves to the
law, and all have promised to respect the fishery regulations in future. The Indians who effected the
rescue, in view of the surrender,
will not be prosecuted by the crown,
attorney general Bowser has announced.

Better Sanitation Needed.
A   health   officer   with   authority
and ability to enforce proper   unit-1
ary conditions is needed in Keremeos at the present time.
It is premature to agitate for ex- |
pensive systems of sewerage and
water supplv but much may be done
lo improve existing conditions by
individual effort and a little concerted action.
A deep well, cased so as to get
below the surface water, would be
inexpensive, and by being centrally
located c mid be made to answer I
the purrose of the village for tha
Thorough cleaning and disinfection of hack yards, the proper use I
of screens to exclude flies and the
boiling of all water used for drink-]
ing purposes will greatly mitigate
if not entirely remove the danger ot
It is better for the people of Keremeos to admit the fact that sanit-|
ary conditions are not what they
should be, and put forth an honest
effort lo improve them, than lo sit
mum and passive for fear the reputation of our town may suffer
abroad. Keremeos should be one
ofthe healthiest places in the province, and no doubt will be if proper
sanitary conditions are observed.
A difference of opinion exists as
to the relative merits of bench and |
bottom lands for fruit culture. Many
BU of lhe opinion, in fact, that fruit
cannot be grown to advantage on
our bottom land, bul the experience of old time ranchers all points
to the contrary. Nowhere do lhe
trees thrive belter or the fruit reach
greater perfection than in the bottom land orchards which we have
visited in the lower \ alley. On Friday evening Win. Manery brought
to this office a half dozen apples of
the "Wealthy" variety which averaged 14 inches in circumference and
17 ounces in weight. They were
all nicely colored and, though we
Cannot recommend the Wealthy as
a mercantile apple, the incident
proves beyond reasonable room for
doubt the value ol our rich bottom
lands for purpose of fruit culture.
The Trumpet appears litis week
as a six-pa^e paper instead of an
eight as formerly. We offer no
apology. A certain proportion between advertising and news matter
must be observed. Many of our
citizens have caught on to the fact
that a real live newspaper is a great
factor in advertising a district and
assisling   in   its   development    and
have accorded the Trumpet a liberal support. Others appear to regard us as a philanthropic institution, devoting its best energies to
advancing their interests and requiring nothing in return. As soon
as this latter class change their
mind, and are willing to do the fair
thing, we shall be pleased to restore
the paper to its former size. In
the meantime we must reduce our
staff and with less space at our disposal endeavor to do what we can
to hasten the development of the
district, a development which is
bound to come, which the lethargic
may retard but cannot stop.
During the month of July 11,332
immigrants arrived in Canada as
compared with 26,341 for the same

compared with 195,760 for the nma
period a year ago. For the six
monlhs to June 30, 437 immigrants
