Easter Ball.
The ball on Easter Monday with
which the new hall at the (.'outre
was opened was in every respect an
entire success, although there was
some disappointment at the non-arrival of a number of people from a
distance who had signified their intention at being present and had
even bespoken rooms for the day.
The spacious hall was profusely
decorated with fla^s, evergreens
and Chinese lanterns, while upon
the Stage were crossed a Union
Jack and Stars and Stripes, a Canadian custom of courtesy that no
amount of flag-intolerance on the
other side of the line seems to affect. The Boor was in perfect condition. The music was furnished
by Prof. Remington, a finished artist on the violin; Mrs. J. Ci. Irving,
pianist, and Frank Bartell, cornet-
ist, who fulfilled   well   the   promise
ofthe management to provide "the
best music to be obtained." In thc
course of the evening an excellent
supper was served at the Central
hotel. The guests numbered about
150—mostly from the town and
vicinity, though there was a fair attendance from Hedley -and a highly enjoyable time was spent by all
till the small hours of thc   morning.
Dooley on Prize-Fighters.
"In th' old days 'twas diff'rent."
said Mr. Dooley. "Thin a prizefighter had to nrurruh fr a livin',

years he kep' a tavern thai th' jook

"lu thlffl times there was no hard

Some of our citizens tire busy
gardening. Others are not doing
much in that line, as they anticipate
being so actively engaged in mining this summer that they will have
no time to spare for gardening.
Then are two or three claim-
owners here who expect to have
their claims visited by prospective
purchasers some time during the
Coming summer. Let us hope they
will not be disappointed.
George Ham returned here on
Monday from the Boundarv, where
he has been working during the
winter. He will commence doing
assessment work on his claims on
Independence Mountain as soon as
the snow permits. This will probably be earlier than usual as the
snowfall at the summit was not
particularly heavy this winter.
Jim Corrie and Jack Elliott arc
outfitting for their trip to Fort
George, Cariboo, and expect to
leave early next month. They will

Word has been received from
Jim Black, who left here for Prince
Rupert about a year ago, saying
that he intends coming back in a
few weeks' time. He expects to be
on hand when the Apex starts work.
John Buchail has gone out to his
ranch on Trout Creek, where he intends to spend the next two Of
three months.
Some of that S<>0,000 is being
spent on the wagon road between
Keremeos and Olalla. A row of
shade trees each side of the road
would make a tine boulevard. The
men are making a good job of it.
Between fifteen and twenty Olal-
laians attended the grand Easier

Keremeos gained a new household at the expense of Kelowna on
Wednesday when Malcolm C. McAuley, one of our popular citizens,
was united in marriage to Lillian
Maud Bower, only daughter of Mr.
D. I). Bower, at the latter's residence in Kelowna. The ceremony
was performed at 10 a. m. by Rev.
Mr. Wright, Methodist minister.
In the afternoon the happy couple
left on the steamer Okanagan for
Penticton, and yesterday morning
drove over from the latter place.
Last evening a number of their
friends gathered at Mr. Keeler's
and enjoyed a wedding supper.
Mr. and Mrs. McAuley were the
recipients of many presents and
congratulations from a wide circle
of friends in the Okanagan and the
Similkameen. They will take up
their residence in the Keremeos
Land Co. building on Seventh Ave.
The Mexican Route.
The shipment of wheat in quantities to the Pacific seaboard brings
into prominence a trade route hitherto little known to Canada—that
across the Tehuantepec isthmus in
Mexico. At present the grain is
nearly all shipped in sailing vessels
by the enormously long Cape Horn
route, which takes nearly half a
year, but even at that is cheaper
than the long rail and water hail
across Canada and the Atlantic.
The Tehuantepec route will, it is
said by the owners, soon be in a
position to offer better rates even
than the Cape route. Also, it is
shorter by many hundreds of miles
than even the Panama canal route.
When the canal is opened there
will be three competitive routes,
which ought, with the competitive
railway lines soon to be in operation across B.C., draw westward a
large proportion ol the prairie output that now Mows eastward.
The work of turning the water
into the irrigation canal is proceeding satisfactorily. It is of course
let in gradually lor a lirst trial, in
order to pie the piping time to
tighten and to test the ditch bottom
at every point. By yesterday morn
ing the water was in the last stretch
o( big piping, which extends to the
edge of the Keremeos bench, and it
is expected that to-day it will enter
the last stretch oi open ditch
in the canal. The fine earth, once
it is soaked, holds in the water remarkably well, though, as was to
have been expected, an occasional
soft spot sinks a little anil has to he

Vigilant Cunningham.
Tweniy thousand fruit trees were
brought to Vancouver in one load
by J. Niblock of Notch Hill, who
telegraphed Mr. Thomas Cunningham, provincial fruit inspector, asking him to be prepared to inspect
them. Every fruit tree that comes
into the province must first pass
through the fumigation process in
Vancouver, where each tree is given a separate and careful inspection
before the owner is allowed to take
it away for planting. It was necessary on Saturday last to destroy
about 5000 infected trees, and about
652 on Tuesday.
Mr. Cunningham says that greater quantities ot nursery stock are
coming in this spring than ever before. Trees are closely watched
for what is known as European
scale, which is similar to the San
Jose scale. The gipsy moth and
the brown-tailed moth are also
close'y watched for. The gipsy
moth is the most dangerous of all,
as it not only attack?; fruit trees,
but trees of almost any species.
According to a late report of the
inspection department of New
Hampshire, this gipsy moth strips
trees as bare as in winter. The
fumigation process and   careful   in-

A Review representative was told
a yarn yesterday which is hard to
swallow, and yet the narrator has a
reputation for veracity. The story
goes that new settlers in the district

planted s large proportion oi them

carefully pruned the roots and are
al a loss to know why the trees are
not thriving.     Summerland Review.
After locking Bll Brown, the porter, in an icebox in the basement,
where he was held for two hours a
prisoner, two armed aud masked
burglars robbed the cash register
in the Tavern saloon, Spokane, of
$17(> at an early hour in the morning. The burglars entered the
room and surprised and overpowered Hi own, who was cleaning up the
saloon. At the point of a revolver
they drove him to the basement and
locked him in the big refrigerator
which was filled with ice. Had he
not been discovered it is believed he
would have succumbed to the cold
within a short time. He kept himself warm by burning matches and
cigarette papers, but the smoke
from these nearly smothered him.

That Canada is carefully "hand*
picking" her new population is proven by the statistics of the Immigration department for the fiscal year
just closed. The deportations for
the year exceeded 1,700, as against
855 in the preceding twelvemonths.
The number of immigrants rejected
at ports of entry exceeded 5,000
compared with 1,272 in the previous
year. Another interesting fact is
that while in the previous fiscal year
7,452 Japanese entered Canada,
last year by virtue of agreement between Lemieux and the Tokio government less than 500  Japs   landed
in Canada.

An altercation between V. J. Rose
ofthe Hotel lledlev and Constable
Sproule last week led lo a fight and

action that Rose resented so far as
to confer a black eve on the officer.

great flag staff. The culprit was
not tied but commanded to take off

stripes calling forth yells for mercy.
The fact that there are so many
Chinese now coming on the inbound
steamers is creating the impression
anion!; those who do not know that
there is a great influx of Orientals
into this province. As a matter of
fact the $500 tax is quite prohibitive as far as coolies are concerned.
Most of those arriving are people
who went home to celebrate the
Chinese New Year. Usually the
one or two new immigrants are
boys or girls who are the children
of merchants now living here, and
who have been living with their
mothers in China. Now and then
a Chinese merchant decides to come
here, but this is an uncommon
thing. The Oriental immigration
is a thing of the past as long as the
present regulations are in  force.

Plan showing the line of irrigation installed by the  Keremeos  Land  Company,  Similkameen  Valley, B. C.
The Keremeos Land Co., in announcing the completion of their irrigation system that will cover their
entire properties with an unlimited supply of the purest of water yet brought to the home of an irrigated
country, feel that the properties offered by them are
such as will command the attention of all homeseekers.
Situated as Keremeos is on the main line of the
Great Northern Railroad now being extended to Vancouver places her on the direct highway to the far
East and West.
Having a climate that is distinctly her own, it
stands today   unexcelled   for   its   sunny   climate   both
winter and summer and has proved itself as being particularly adapted to the raising of apples, peaches,
pears, plums and cherries, grapes and melons, while
vegetables exceed all conditions usually obtained both
in quantity and size.
In competition at Spokane the only exhibit sent
took first prize, while at the Provincial Fair at New
Westminster out of 100 pounds of assorted fruits Keremeos captured some 23 prizes.
The upper portion of the valley, including Hedley
and Princeton, both rich in their mining industries,
offers the local market means of disposing of all produce.
The  properties  are   being  offered   in   1,  3,  5 and   10  acre   Blocks  with   a   wel
now doing an active business.
Our terms are liberal.    One-third cash.    Balance in 3 payments at 7 per cent.
Acreage properties are from $200 to $300 an acre.    Town lots from $100 to $300.
