It cannot be said that the sports
held here on Monday were in every
respect an unqualified success. The
difficulties attending an initial celebration were too great to be entirely smoothed away. A new race
track and baseball field had to be
cleared, local clubs organized to
compete in the various events, and
numerous other details, which will
not present themselves on future occasions, all had to be dealt with in
a limited   time.    Besides  this,   the
f weather man took a hand and did
what he could to thwart the efforts
of the committee for it day's enjoyment. All day long a stiff gale
blew down the valley and stirred up
a cloud of dust on the athletic-
grounds that greatly inconvenienced both contestants and onlookers.
For days previous the weather had
been of the   made-to-order  variety,
■ and it was unfortunate that it
should have chang-ed just when it
However, a little wind and dust
cannot dampen western enthusiasm
when on pleasure bent, and early in
the forenoon load after load began
to arrive from the surrounding district and neighboring- towns.     Hed-
j ley contributed a handsome quota
including a gun club and baseball
team, the livery men of that town
and Keremeos having all the passengers their combined forces could
accommodate. Fairview was over
en masse while the V.V. & K. train,
which brought baseball teams and
their supporters from Oroville and
Nighthawk, was packed to the
At the station a number of vehicles were in readiness to convey visitors to the Centre, where a matched race for large stakes was being
run by horses owned by Thomas
and Armstrong. In the meantime
the draw for the baseball tournament was made and resulted in
Hedley being drawn against Night-
hawk and Oroville against Keremeos.
Hedley and Nighthawk took the
field first, the former team looking
spink and span in their neat blue
uniforms and putting up a game at
the start that made them look like
winners. Keremeos had difficulty
in collecting a nine, and the team
that finally faced the Oroville professionals on the diamond were at
the disadvantage of having had absolutely 00 practice  together.     The
new ball ground proved a little slow
on account of the light sandy nature
of the soil but otherwise was in
good condition. Following is a list
ofthe players and a summary of the

Immediately upon the  conclusion
' of the g line   with   Keremeos,   the
, Oroville  team  took  on the Night-
', hawkers  in   the   final  game.    The
line-up of both teams was the same
as in their preceding games.    In the
opening innings neither side  scored
I but in their half of the second   Oro-
j ville bunched their hits and assisted
by a pass and a few juicy errors got
three men over the plate, enough to
win the game and to spare.

Though the new track was not
one on which records were likely to
be smashed, there was keen interest
shown in the races and most of the
events, the cowboys race in particu-
| lar, were keenly contested. The relay race and several minor events
were not pulled off until the next
dap.     Following are the  winners :
Open race H. Richter (Ciinty)

Three teams, representing- Hedley, Fairview and Keremeos competed at the traps for the trophy to be
donated by L. VV. Shatford. By-
special request we refrain from publishing the scores, except to say
that Hedley, with 64 out of 100,
have the right to first possession of
the trophy, while the best individual score was made by F. French,
with 19 out of 25. The competing
teams were as follows : Harris,
Rolls, French, Boeing, Hedley;
Dalrymple, H. and C. Jones, Aulds,
Fairview; Kwart, Traub, Meausette,
Frith, Keremeos.
The winners are subject to chal-
ledge at their own town by any team
in the Electoral Division of Similkameen after the expiration of thirty
days or at any celebration held in
the towns represented by teams
which enter the competition.
The dance given under the auspices of the Athletic Association in
the evening was very largely attended and in every way a complete
success. Princeton, Hedley, Fair-
view and Oroville were all represented and, spacious as our town hall
is, for once it was crowded. Oroville orchestra supplied the music
and refreshments were served by-
Mr. and Mrs. Keeler at fheir new

Notes and Comments.
The new election law in Saskatchewan includes Chinamen along
with lunatics, convicts, etc., among
the classes not entitled to vote. As
a large number of Chinamen in the
Province are naturalized, it is not
unlikely that  they   will   dispute the
validity of the act.
Hitherto it has been the policy of
the owners of the graal turbine
steamships, Mauretania and Lusitania, to maintain secrecy as to
details, especially of power and coal
consumption. Lately, however,
some figures have been given out,
which show that tbe Lusitania, the
greatest and swiftest of all liners,
with a speed ot about 30 miles an
hour, develops 68,850 horsepower.
'Phis requires almost  exactly   1000
tons of coal a day, so thai the leviathan weighs 5000 tons less at the
end of a voyage than at the beginning in itself tbe weight ot ■ big
chip's cargo.
One reason why foreigners are
preferred on public and other works
to English, Scotch and Irish was
given by Crown Attorney Corlev ot
Toronto in the police court. Wm.
Plewes, foreman for Kelly \- Co.,
contractors, was charged with fraud
in having accepted from a number
" Italians a dollar each to give
them work, and then having discharged them, after they had worked lor a short  time.     Crown   Altor-
nev Corley, said all foreigners were
in the habit of paying foremen to
obtain  their jobs.     British   subjects
would not do this, sii that foreigners secured the preference. Magistrate   Kingsford    remarked   that   it
looked very crooked.
11 is announced thai President
Roosevelt has signed the bill directing the restoration to gold ami sil-
v ei coins ol the motto  " In Cod we
trusts"   ordered   bj   him   stricken
from the gold coin, some months
ago, on the ground thai lhe law did
not authorise its use. The President's action in lirst ordering the
erasion ol ihe mono raised quite a
furor for a time ; and il is worthy
of note that the arguments both
pro and con were nearly always
based on tbe same ground that no
one  worth   mentioning   advocated
the elision from atheistic motives,
iuch as have impelled Ihe French
lo ignore systematically all acknowledgment of  the   Creator   in  public
affairs.    On the contrary,  it  was
rather from regard  for   the   sacred-
ness ofthe name that objection was
made to its constant and mechanical use in common and often sordid
affairs. On similar grounds many
good people object to the too facile
"Sti help me God" used in petty
law affairs. Bul lhe V. S. Semite
in its wisdom has decreed the
restoration of the motto on the
i coins, with the assent of the President and apparently ofthe people.
The Manchester Guardian, vine of
the most influential of the great
British dailies, comments thus on
tbe Manitoba Hag act : " An outcome ot the self-conscious patriotism which is universal in Canada,
and which so often strikes the British newcomer as something forced
and unreal, is a curious law lately
passed by the Province of Manitoba
ordering the Union Jack to be
hoisted over all public schools during lhe hours of work. If any
school diatrict neglects to Ily the
national Hag it will lose the grant
from the government a serious
penalty. One result ofthe law will
be thai the hauling down of the
Union Jack will have the most
agreeable associations in lhe minds
of lhe children."
So many hot-country plants have
been successfully tested in Southwestern B. C. that the experiments
in lhat line have gone to extremes.
A test is being made at the Coast
in growing cotton, from a tree that
has proved successful in South
Africa. Warm valleys, with light
sandy soil, are required for its
growth, inst such it soil as is found
in the Similkameen. In Egypt this
variety ofthe cotton plant is grown
on an   enormous   scale.     As it    will
nearly always grow where peaches
grow, there appears to be no reason why the Similkameen should not
be tilled for it.     But   as  the   vallcv
is so well adapted to other profit-
abie pursuits, it is likely that cotton-glowing will be left to the tropics for it while yet.
Chief Justice Meredith of Ontario,
addressing the grand jury at Brampton assizes,   made  some emphatic
remarks on the character of part of
Can.ula's immigration. There seems
to be a unanimity ot opinion, be
said, that the people such as are
being dumped into this country are
oi a different character and will not
blind well with the people ot this
COUntry.     The door should be closed
ugainsl the Introduction of degenerates, Recently a prominent physician pointed oui to  him  thai  over
id) per cent, of these immigrants
are afflicted with dementia-precox,
which means that their mentality is
exceedingly low and of the degenerate type. They are the most incurable class; and likely to live a
number of years al  ibe expense of
the country. The judge hoped the
grand jurors would speak out at
every opportunity, aiul that the
Dominion and Provincial Governments would redouble their efforts
lo keep out this elass.

600,000 Acres a Year for Railway Ties Alone.
Railroads of Western Canada are
consuming vast quantities of material at present. C. B. I'ssher, assistant passenger traffic manager ot
tlie C.P.R., Winnipeg, estimates the
animal expenditure on ties, etc., at
about fifty million dollars. Mr.
I'ssher states that in the construction of new track and for renewals,
the steam and street railways used,
in \'KX>, over one hundred million
cross-ties. The average price paid
was 48 cents per tie. Approximately three-fourths of the ties were
hewed, and one-fourth sawed.
Oak, the chief wood used for ties,
furnished   more   than   44 per cent.,
nearly one-half of the whole number,
while   the    southern    pines,   which
rank second, contribute about   one-
I sixth.     Douglas fir and   cedar,   the ,
j next two, with approximately equal
| quantities, supply less   than one-fif-
I teenth   apiece.     Chestnut,  cypress,
Western pine, tamarac, hemlock and
redwood are all of  importance,  but
no one of them furnishes more than
a small proportion.
Oak and southern pine stand high-
\ est in both total and average value;
the average value of each is 61 cts.
Chestnut ranks next, followed by-
cedar. Hemlock, at 28 cents, is the
cheapest tie reported.
More than thtee-fourths of all ties
are hewed; and with every wood
from which ties are made, except
Douglas fir and western pine, the
number of hewed ties is greater
than the number sawed.
About ten times as many Douglas
fir ties are sawed as are hewed. Of
the oak ties a little over one-sixth,
and of the southern pine ties, less
than one-third are sawed. In contrast to the southern pi ■*> is the
western pine, of which mc- than |
I one-half ties are sawed. In gener-j
al, when lumber has a relatively
i low value, the proportion of sawed
ties increases because the market
for ties is always active, while that
for lumber is frequently sluggish.
All western species are affected by
this conditiod, for stumpage is abundant and its value relatively low.
Ten per cent, of the ties purchased were treated with preservatives,
either before they were purchased
or at the treating plant of the railroad company. At least ten railroad companies are operating their
own plants for the preservation of
their construction material.
Of the many forms in which wood
is used, ties are fourth in cost, sawed lumber being first, firewood second, and shingles and laths third.
It has been calculated that the
amount of wood used each year in
ties is equivalent to the product of
oOO.OOO acres of forest, and that to
maintain every tie in the track, two
trees must be growing.
With nearly 300,000 miles of railroad trackage, and approximately
2,80(1  ties   to   the   mile,   there are
over   800,000,000   lies   constant'y
subject to wear aiul decay.
The railroads report that in the
form ol ties, cellar lasts I 1 years,
cypress ten years, and redwood nine
years. These woods, however, lack
the desired weight and hardness,
When it is considered then, thai
the service ot the longest lived tie
timbers in general use chestnut,
white oak, tamarac, spruce and
Douglas fir -is but seven years,
while with some, as the black oaks,
it is but four years,whereas a treated tie with equipment to lessen
wear will last fifteen years, it is apparent how much the railroads can
save if preservative treatment of
ties is universally adopted. The
laving in the drain upon the forests
is of even greater moment.
