Last Saturday Mr. A. Robertson
left on our desk a sample of "l>o-

perior to the previous sample we
had seen and was as attractive in
appearance as it was exquisite in
flavor. We do not wonder that
people who can afford it readily
pay five dollars a box for these
apples in preference to buying others
at lower prices. Mr. Robertson
has ordered fifty trees of this variety
for spring planting.
J. J. Marks ofthe "Golden Zone"
mine of Hedley, passed up the valley yesterday on his return from
Nelson, where he has been in consultation with his brothers, arranging for the sale ol" stock and the
working of the mine on an extensive scale. Mr. Marks is inclined
to credit tht" rumor that M. K.
Rogers, with J. J. Hill as his right
bower, is negotiating for the purchase of the Nickel Plate. He is
most optimistic over the immediate
future of this valley.
Hedley citi/ens complain ofthe
high express rates which they have
to pay on parcels coming via Penticton, and fondly hope that once
lhe steel reaches their town that the
hold-up will be over. Such has not
heen the experience in Keremeos.

come via Penticton and we have lo

possible.    Once the   Dominion  ex-

over to another company, no matter what the cost or inconvenience
to the public. The redress, as suggested hv the Gazette, lies in using
the mails whenever possible and in

outside to he c.i rclul and ship via

2<) WHY MINING FAILS.
Palmer Mountain Prospector
Ceases Publication Some
Plain Facts About Mining;
Methods.
The Palmer Mountain Prospector, (Loomis, Wash.) one of the
brightest, newsiest, most readable,
local papers that has heen coming
to our exchange table ceased publication last week. Editor Dallam
in his valedictory says : "We do-
sire to state that the suspension of
the Prospector is in DO way a business failure. It is simply a case of
abandoning a field where the support does not warrant a continuance
end moving to another and nearby
locality, where a living at least is
promised for the labor performed."
He re-affiims his faith in the bright
future of the camp in whose interests he has labored so faithfully for
the last eleven years without adequate compensation, and in closing
{jives his views on the mining
methods which have prevailed in
the camp.
"People at a distance" he says
"should not feel for a moment that
vve have lost faith in the mineral
richness of this immediate locality
because the paper has ceased publication. Our belief in the present
presence ot mineral and the ultimate
production of the precious metals
in large and paving quantities is
just as firm now as it has always
been since first becoming familiar
with the surface and underground
showings that can be seen by anyone who will take the trouble ot
visiting the many claims and prospects  in  this  neighborhood.     We
have seen ledges where thev crop,
we have seen lhem when cut at
depth, and we have seen lhem iu
shaft and tunnel where exposed.
We have had assays made at our
own expense. We have heard the
opinion eapreseed by men who have
spent years of their lives following
mining, both as miners working
for wage, and as promoters and
operators, and hence (eel that we
are in a position to speak with some
knowledge of the subject. It is
doubtful if stronger ledges, more of
lhem, anil battel showings ,,111 be
found anywhere in Ihe west. Mote-
ovei the values are present. Gold,
silver, Clipper and lead exist in the
Surrounding hills, anil, as this paper
has so often insisted, the lime will
come when these ores will be SI*
tracted in lafgS quantities yielding
large fortunes lo lhe operators.
This can only be expected when
mining is carried on intelligently hymen who know the business of mining, which has not been lhe case in
years past.
"The sin and pity of it to us, as
we look back "pon the years since
our arrival in the county, is the ignorant methods ot operation that
have been in vogue, resulting in a
frightful waste ol mono, which,
had it been propcil)  applied,   would
have developed mines. Ignorance,
resulting in the woeful waste of
capital contributed by eastern investors, is little short of criminal,
and there are monuments to the
folly of intrusting such expenditures to men without knowledge of
mining to be seen on every hand.
Companies are organized to open
up certain mining properties, and
then men who never saw a mine
are intrusted vvith the work. Nothing but failure could be expected.
It would be simply a miracle if a
mine could be made under such
conditions. This stupidity has done
more to bring' discredit upon mining
in Washington than any other
cause, and so long as it continues
to prevail failure only can be expected. Our sympathy goes out to
the man who has been induced to
invest his means, too often all his
little horde, in mining stocks, to
have it thrown away by incompetent operators. As stated above the
mineral is here only waiting system
attcts research hy men who know
the business to produce weajth for
those so fortunate as to be interested. From every indication we
believe that much will be accomplished this year toward making producing mines. We believe that in
the future greater eaie will be taken in selecting managers, and if it
is success is sure to follow. We
are as sincerely confident in the
richness of the country, though
forced to leave the immediate vicinity for a time at least through circumstances over which we have no
control, as at any time during our
long residence in it."

G. MILBURN. Distribution of School Prizes.
A very enjoyable evening was
spent at the school bouse on Friday
evening, the occasion being the distribution of prizes among the children. Though the capacity of the
school house was fully taxed there
was accommodation for all, extra
seats having been provided.
Willi the exception of a tableau
the program was a repetition, in
part, of the one given earlier in the
town hall. lhe presents showed
excellent    taste   and   judgement    in
selection and comprised  something
lor each pupil. They were handed
lo lhe happy recipients by Mr. !•'.
Richter, whose   patriarchal  bearing
and affable manner added  effect  to
the ceremony. Hatlie Innis and
Maurice Paly each received prizes,
voted by the children ofthe school,
lo the most popular girl and boy.
Following the distribution of
prizes was a neat litte speech by
Mr. Stoess, eulogistic of the excellent results accomplished by Miss
PergUSSOO as teacher and thanking
her on behalf of those present for
the splendid entertainment provided.
The floor vvas then cleared and the
customary dance indulged in until
lhe "witching hour." Two four-'
horse   sleigh loads   of   people   from
tenderfeel who, without any   know*
ledge of the country or experience
in mountaineering, are tempted to
gO alone on exploring trips in thc
hills.     The Courier says :
"Frozen limbs are rarely heard
ot in this locality, but a case occurred on Bear creek last week which
mav cost lhe sufferer a loot. A
young man named Lister, who lives
some distance up the lake, took a
walk in the direction of Bear Creek
on Wednesday and lost his way.
He spent until dark trying to find
the trail homewards, and then had
to walk round all night to keep from
freesing, as he had no matches.
He spent next day in the same manner, and, becoming exhausted, lay
down to sleep at ni^ht and his feet
froze. He did not seem to be
aware of what had befallen him and,
after he had succeeded in reaching
Mr. Cliilders' house at the mouth of
Bear Creek on Friday, he incautiously subjected his feet to thawing
out by heat. Mr. Childers had no
boat and was unable to take Lister
across the lake till Saturday, when
he vvas removed to the hospital, and
at last accounts was doing well,
though there is danger that he may
lose one foot."

Fire at Penticton.
About 7:30 on Wednesday even*
ini, a lire broke out in IC. S.   Lake's
photographic studio above hia grocery store in the l.ee Block. The
whole inside of the upper Hat was
aflame before the fire vvas discovered and all efforts at Extinguishing it
prov ed of no avail.
lhe sounding of  the   gong   soon
brought a large crowd of willing
workers, and also a large crowd of
those not so willing. Attention
was turned to saving the stock of
groceries and to removing the furniture from Mr. and    Mrs.    Malcom
Campbell's home which adjoined
the l.ee Block. Both buildings
were completely destroyed. Nothing was saved Irom lhe photographic studio anil only pail  of   the
grocery stock was got out.
Water being close at hand, the
bucket brigade was enabled to ilo
very effective work, and lo its efforts
arc undoubtedly due the fad that
ihe Penticton Hardware as well as
the Cariees ami   Rathvon  building
still stand. As it was the intense
heat totally Wrecked the (,rlass  front
of the latter building.
The loss is partly covered bv Insurance.

Shut in by the mountains and only to be
reached by stage, the Valley was not known. Now the Railway is completed to Keremeos and they are busy grading on
to the Coast. When completed this will place the Valley
within 180 miles of Vancouver.
We have laid out a Town Site at Keremeos, and the surrounding land in 3, 5 and 10 acre plots. A
COMPLETE SYSTEM OF IRRIGATION is under construction and is expected to be completed this fall.

Dr. Jackson of Penticton arrived
on Tuesday and has been spending
the interval at the Hotel Keremeos.
Twenty tons of powder vvas exploded in one blast at Prince
Rupert last week. No wonder the
people at the coast had a "shock."
Stock-taking is now over and vve
find some remnants and odd lines
that must be cleaned out. Price no
object.    Keremeos Commercial Co.
Mis. George Loudon and children of l.oomis, who have been visiting at the home of the former's
daughter, Mrs. F. Richter, returned home on  Tuesday.
The Penticton stajje failed to ar-
tive on time again yesterday, b'.-t
whether it was owing to the steamer being delayed or to other causes
is not known at the time of writing.
Ur. Rankin, medicine man lor the
ci. X. construction camps up the
valley, who has been on a holiilav
trip to his hor.i* in Halifax, returned on Tuesday to i .sume his duties.
R. G. Shier of lledlev passed
through Keremeos on Monday,    lie
i- taking advantage of the comparative quietness in the camp for a
visit to his wife and family at the
coast.
Mi. li. M. Murphy and daughter
of Carberry and Mrs. G. C. Armstrong of Winnipeg arrived via the
V.V. 0 l'.. on Saturday, and altera
couple of weeks' visit with friends
here will proceed to the coast.
Several sleigh loads of VOUItg
people, and others, numbering iii all
between titty and sixty, paid a
"surprise" visit to the home of
Mrs. Daly on Wednesday evening
and spent a most enjoyable time at
cards and dancing.
A large crate ot choice fowl ar-
lived by express ycslcidav and was
"assed on up to the Central Hotel
where they will form part of the
menu at the swell dinner to he ^iv •

tomorrow evening.
Ihis is the "between" season in
mercantile business; between thc
winter trade and preparation foi the
spring. It is usually dull and for
this reason vve are offering exceptional values as an inducement to
trade.     Keremeos  Commercial Co.
Mr. K. I.owe, after an extended
visit with his mother, left for home
at Victoria last week just in time
to be held up en route by the  slides
on the (i. N. track near Seattle.
Hick might just as well have remained here a few days longer and
had another rubber or two.
It is not too early to begin plans
for an exhibit at the big Alaska*
Yukon-Pacific fair at Seattle next
summer and for any other fairs that
come within our reach. If the tide
of settlement is to be directed to
our valley this year vve must carry
on extensive systematic advertising
abroad.
Mrs. I.owe has received the
diploma awarded her exhibit of
apples at the Spokane fair and is
naturally very pleased with it. Included vvith the award, however, is
a prize which is to say the least a
little smbarrasing. It is $50 worth
of Burbank'l rhubarb roots, or
enough, we should surmise, to
pretty nearly plant the whole vallev.
