and it was his intention this fall to
build a fine dwelling and move here
permanently. His untimely death
vvill be a distinct loss to the community as well as to his family and
business associates.
The funeral was held at Vancouver on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. C.
C. Owen officiating. Deceased
was about 45 years of age. His
wife and little daughter survive
him. His father and mother are
also living at the Coast, and four

be seriously ill, and the unexpected
news of his demise came as a shock
to his friends here.
Though the cause of his death
has not been stated, it is thought to
be traceable to a slight accident—
if it can be called an accident—that
occurred while he was in Keremeos
this summer. On the 3rd of July,
as he vvas stepping from a carriage
to the ground, he felt a sharp
twinge in the leg, which he thought
at the time vvas nothing more than
a strain of the muscle or I rheumatic
twinge, but which appeared after-
waids to bo duo to the rupture of a
blood vessel. The effects of this
ultimately reached his heart, but
suddenly, for he appeared to be
quite well a few hours before his
death.
Mr. Woodrow was a native of
England, but entered the butcher
business in Vancouver about twenty
years ago, and prospered so that he
vvas able to retire four or five years
ago with a large estate, the administration of which has taken up
much of his time since then. Heing
an intimate friend of W. H. Armstrong, he became associated with
the latter in the organization of
the Keremeos Land Co., in which
he was a large stockholder and an
active director. His personal interest in the valley was such that
he had determined to make his
home here, and to that end planted
thirty acres in fruit, much of which
will come into bearing next year.

Mr. and Mrs. Swanson of Princeton were in town on Tuesday on
their way to Seattle.
U. S. officers have seized at Motion 1500 ties that were to be
brought up and used in the upper
Similkameen. It is claimed they
were cut on U. S. homestead   land.
Another change in game regulations is announced in the current
B. C. Gazette. Grouse (except
prairie chicken) may be shot in this
district from Sept. 10 (to-day) to
Dec. 31, 1909.
Jas. Reith returned on Monday
after a visit to his brother above
Princeton. He had intended to remain longer, but found the extremes
of temperature in that region too
trying to be pleasant.
Several Hedleyites went through
on Wednesday en route to the
Coast. Mr. Megraw of Camp McKinney, Miss Megraw, and Mrs. J.
D. Brass went by the V. V. & E.,
and Mrs. Dr. Whillans, Mr. and
Mrs. W. A. McLean and Miss Alice
McLean via the Okanagan.
Dr. McKwen, while out hunting
vvith Mannie Barcelo up the Ashnola
on Saturday, inadvertently supplied
himself with some surgical work.
He was trying to ride his horse up
a steep hill when the animal slipped
and fell. The doctor jumped clear,
hut fell with his arm across a ridge
of rock, and the horse fell on him.
His arm was gashed, his face cut
and his ankle sprained. The hunters returned 10 town on Sunday
morning.
FOR SALE.
The biggest snap in the Similkameen Valley—Ranch containing
over 300 acres, almost all bottom
land, cutting at present about 100
tons of hay, can easily be made
to cut 300 tons. For sale on easy
terms by L. R. Chase, Olalla, B.C.
Labor Day was for Hedley this
year a sort of Epoch Day—Labor
Day, Railway day and Nickel Plate
day rolled in one, or rather two, for
one day was not long enough to
contain all the rejoicings. The attendance was large, of people from
both up and down the valley, and of
horses larger; one old-timer remarked that he had never seen so many
horses in one place before. Besides
those vvho drove up from Keremeos,
about 120 went up on the contractors' work train, the first excursion
train to the camp. The throng of
excursionists from Oroville numbered 3, at whom 2 were musicians engaged to play for the dance in the
evening.
The passengers were disembarked
at the putative station grounds at
the west end, and as there were no
conveyances at hand had a very hot
and dusty walk of three-quarters oi
a mile or so to get "down-town,"
where they arrived too late to Mt
the rock-drilling contest, much to
the disappointment of many of them.
This contest vvas regarded as one of
the best attractions ofthe day, and
it was considered to be a misplay on
the part of the management to pull
it off before the arrival of a large
section of the audience. The drilling contest was won by Faulds
brothers of the Nickel Plate, who
pierced through 34J^ inches of hard
rock in 15 minutes.
Of the baseball part of the program, it must be said that it was
crudely handled and unsatisfactory
all through. An arrangement had
been made for Keremeos to have a
team in the competition and on
Monday several players from here
went up expecting to take part.
On arrival they found that the Hedleyites had displaced the arrangement with one of their own. Lack-
| ing the material for a team themselves, they proposed a Hedley-
Koreiiioos team as the only way to
meet the formidable Croat Northern
vvith any chance of success. Having got the consent of three of the
Keremeos men who went up the
day before, this plan was carried
out, and a so-called Similkameen
team formed, four, from Kereineos
and five from Hedley, the main
strength of which was in the Keremeos contingent. By this astute
scheme the Hedleyites roped in the
glory and prize money that they
could not have otherwise secured,
and that would have probably come
down the valley if the schedule first
agreed on had been carried out.
The game was interrupted  by   rag-

chewing at different times and delayed so that only seven innings
were played. The umpire, E. D.
Boeing, while undoubtedly fair in
intention, was not an expert at the
business, and his decisions gave
rise to many disputes. The game
was virtually settled by a string of
7 runs made by the Similkameens
in the 2nd innings. The Hedley-
Keremeos team were: T. Daly, p,
Hettrick, c, Holbrook, lb, Chapin,
2b, McLean, ss, Hertell, 3b, W.
Daly, tf, Grant cf, Knowles, If.
The score by innings was:
Similkameen—0 7 0 4 13  1—16
G.  Northern—0 0 2 0 0 3 0—5
A good deal of interest was shown
in the ladies' saddle race, especially
by the Keremeos contingent, as all
the competitors except one were
Keremeos ladies. The entrants
were : Miss Ella Innis, Miss Annie
Innis, Miss Kirby, Miss Daly, Mrs.
H. Richter, Miss May Smilheram,
Keremeos; Miss Brant, Penticton.
In an exciting race Miss Ella Innis,
on Miss Lowe's Starlight, came in
first, winning for the owner a beautiful silver cup. Miss Florence
Daly was a close second, and Mrs.
Richter third, winning a fine gold
and silver medal respectively.
In the shooting contest on Tues-
the Keremeos marksmen won all
along the line. The gun club team
captured the Shatford cup from
Hedley by a score of 69 to 58, and
in the individual shoot the first,
second and third prizes were taken
by Keremeos shots. The team
score was:
Keremeos Hedley
E. Richter        19    F. French       19
E. M. Crooker 16    L. Rolls 15
H. Meausette 18    Dr. Whillans 14
H. Armstrong 16    B. Harris        10
69 58
The score in the individual shoot
was: Ed. Richter 22, C. Armstrong 20, H. Armstrong 19, E.
Waterman 18.
Wm. Kruger of Penticton won
the 5-mile race in 30)4 minutes,
with Jo Marcel second. Jo kept
ahead till near the end, when his
opponent made a strong spurt which
upset his calculations. Jo won from
Kruger in a 10-mile race at Penticton not long ago, and his failure to
win at Hedley was apparently from
a mistake in generalship rather than
from lack of steam.

Placards were posted in Hedley
to the effect that any dogs intruding
on the race track would be shot
without trial. The dogs took no
chances, but kept away.
If any proof were needed that
Jimmy Riordan was an old-timer, it
might be cited that on Monday, going to Hedley, he rode on a railway
train for the first time in twenty
years.
An attempt was made  early   Friday   morning   to   break   into   the
jewelry store  of A. C. Liphart,   in
' Fernie, which was,   however,   frus-
! trated by the   vigilance of the   police.    The burglars were endeavor-
i *nti t0 Ka'n ;m entrance   through   a
! window in the rear of the   building
I when   they   were  discovered  by  a
policeman   who   was   making   his
usual rounds.    The official promptly gave chase and pursued them for
some distance when they eluded him
and   made   their   escape.        It   is
thought that the burglars were professional crooks who were  unaware
of the fact that the city maintains a
police patrol at night  which   keeps
a close watch  on  the  buildings  in
the business section of the city.

The Ashcroft Journal states that
what looks to be one the richest
discoveries ever made in Cariboo in
the line of quart/ has recently been
unearthed by Messrs. Armstrong
and Arnold, two quail/ men who
have for the past Iwo months been
prospecting in the Cariboo district.
The vein in question is situated at

George Girty, the old miner near

savs the Oroville Gazette, a grand-
son of Simon Girty, the Renegade,
a noted historical character who in
early davs cast in his lot with the
Indians and waged murderous war
on lhe whiles. Naturally George
rarely referred to the relationship,
and it waa known to few. George
was a in.in of excellent character,

Dominion fruit inspector Maxwell
Smith has forwarded his resignation
to Ottawa, to take effect Oct. 1.
It is understood that the resignation
is based on  the   expected   congress
of the department which will detail
fruit inspectors for special work in
circumscribed areas instead of for
the general educational work hither-
He proffered the maximum fine,
which was accepted, and the gams
wardens then proceeded to the
taxidermist's and confiscated the
heads. It had been proposed also
to proceed against the governor-
general, but investigation failed to
show that he had killed any game.
His excellency did not know that
goats were included in the game
unlawful to shoot. He expresses
great delight at the strict enforcement of the laws protecting them,
and is pleased to see that the laws
exist.

A Visitor's Views.
Writing from Princeton, Bruce,
of the Sunset, thus sizes up the
change ofthe situation in the Similkameen brought about hy the building of the railway : "The railway
situation as viewed from this side
of the Hope mountains is interesting and would he instructive to the
commercial interests of Vancouver
if they paid attention to it long
enough to understand it. The
Similkameen is almost a* completely isolated in sentiment from Vancouver as it is by lack of transportation, Similkameen regards Vancouver as the special preserve of the
C.P.R. and it looks upon the C.P.R.
as its pet enemy which > been toi
years using its best endeavors ,o
keep out all other railways while
doing nothing i'< tie \i iv at furnishing transportation itself.
"lim Hill on the ..ther hand is
regarded as the transportation
savior of the diatrict. ri< is the
man who is 1 >i•:'•"'-,tf a railway into
the district. I' ta true he has liccn
exasperatini.lv ilOM but lis is here
at last. His jjr.uk is up to the
town. The pile d.iver '.as the
trestle for the bridge at tlie city's
entrance ready Vr tn. Stringers.
Within three month., rains v nl be
running in and out ol here to the
outside      world    Spokane. \'o
more will the residents Ik 'iependent
upon the Nicola stage oi <he Hiillc
stage for out-comminic.iiion. Jim
Hill has done and is doing this for
the Similkameen in spite of the opposition of the L". P. R. to the extension of Ins charter t mr ve irs ago.
Therefore Jim Hill is tlie friend and
the C.P.R. is the en,.r») if the district. That is th' view of the
people and you can't blame them.
They have waited five, ten, t.venty,
even forty years for a railway.
Their mining claims hive lain fallow, their lands have been idle, their
hay has had no markc., their mail
service been intermiti C I and precarious, supplies have been costly
because of expensiv, and crude
methods of packing If m in. All
these conditions Jit.. Hill is changing Now the mine- >" ope the
farms will produce, tl. p.ople wid
find occupations, thi homes will
become such in rt. ity. .similkameen will bask in tin sunshine of
the advantages whit I accrue from
steam transportation The contrast
with the conditions of yesterday are
so sharp that the peoj-'r- would be
wooden indeed if they ^id not appreciate the change and less the
hand that wrought it.
"The   resentment    against   Jim
Hill's tardiness of the last two or
three years fades away in the smoke
of the blasts by which the right of
way is being cut through the hills.
The murmurs of disapproval are
drowned in the clash and rattle of
freight cars as they round the corners ir io Hedley and Princeton.
This d strict is now Jliu Hill's preserve. He will own the trade of
this di.-;tricf by right of first occupation. Sokane will benefit hugely by this trade. Princeton coal
mines are already figuring on a
market for thtir coal in Spokane.
Store stock? of all sorts will be
brought hen;. M, r of the goods
in the stores >ear American brands.
American ti hacco is sold as freely
as Canadian. American goods of
all binds take equal place with
Canadian. Americai sawmill products have completely driven out
those ot the Coast mills. Jim Hill's
line will be a veritable sluice of
trade from   this   district   into   Spo-
jkane. '
That i , the road is a feeder for
Spokan   so long as its terminus is in
I the valley- When the road gets
through to the Coast, it should not
be beyond the ability of Vancouver
to turn the current the other way.
On the one hand will be the advantage of established trade connections, on the   other  the  advantage
i of disianc* and time, and of tariff
protection. The. trade of the
Simi'kameen will be Vancouver's

Canada is without douht the premier Dominion, but not in every respect. In a numiier of lines of comparison Australia shows to advantage. Geographically it is absolutely   ind-pendent,   in  contrast   with
lour long interlocking border. It
has no strong and menacing neigh-
j bor. Its population is 96 per cent.
Hritish.    Its   growth   is  swift,   its
• wealth great, its people highly intelligent and denii'-ratii. Sixty years
ago the population of Australia was
4<X),000 and there were no railways.
Now the inhabitants number  nearly
'4,500,000.    They have £\12,000,-

Nicola Stage Wrecked
Nicola, B. C. Sept. 6.—When
coaling down Pooley's hill into
Nicola on Friday, one ofthe horses
on the Nicola-Princeton stage got
one leg over the pole. The other
horses took fright and started down
the hill at breakneck speed. The
driver was thrown from the rig and
the lines fell down among the
horses' feet. The four horses ran
about a quarter of a mile, when the
stage struck a large rock and upset.
The passengers were thrown out
and some of them severely shaken
up and bruised. J. W. Whiteley,
of Vancouver, in jumping to clear
himself of the horses had his ankle
sprained and his hip severely
bruised. Mr. and Mrs. L. H.
Brooke, of Tulameen, were severely
shaken up, and H. Smith of Nicola
also received a severe shaking. The
horses piled up in a gully, one on
top of thc other, with the stage
over them. The stage was literally
sn.ashed, and it is miraculous how
any of the passengers escaped with
their lives.

The following- interesting budget
of notes, written for the Chronicle
by a Keremeosian while on a trip up
the Okanagan valley, unfortunately
arrived too late for last week's issue.
Writing from Okanagan Landing
under date Aug. 30, our correspondent says:
I landed from the steamer Okanagan at 10a.m., and the C.P.R.
train will not leave here for Vernon
till noon or later. The C.P.R.
steamers are good, but this long
wait at nowhere is enough to excite
the angry passions of passengers
and to discount the boasted management ofthe C.P.R. with railway
companies. Competition is the life
of comfort. 1 hope that Keremeos
will have more than one railroad.
I made the little journey from
Keremeos to Fairview with the
mining encyclopedia for that
district, and from him I received
valuable information, not only about
many of the abandoned mineral
claims around Stemwinder Mountain, but about the land that was
taken up by men in the far distant
past for homesteads, but on which
they only cut down and sold the
timber and then left them. Some of
these sections are at a high altitude,
but are fairly good for hay, coarse
grain and pasture. This year several land-seekers passed through
this distriet on their way to the
cold regions ofthe north. If they
should revisit this district after a
strenuous tight for existence in the
north they may find fine ranches in
these mountains and be moved to
kick themselves for their want of
foresight.
miles north-east of Fairview, and
will bear inspection. The shaft is
down a considerable depth in the
ore and from the shaft for two hundred feet the course of the ledge is
well marked on the surface of the
hill. The assayer's report for the
ore at the surface and at the bottom
of the shaft are most encouraging.
The situation of Juno is most favourable for dump and mill site. The
clouds are beginning to break.
Mr. Shatford of the Southern
Okanagan Land Co., with two
L'sonian capitalists viewed the bench
lands from the LB. line to Fairview
last week. This soil is number one
and there is no better climate in
Hritish Columbia for fruit. The
Usonians came, they saw, and they
may conquer all the difficulties in
the way of a complete irrigation
system for the Lower Okanagan
Valley. It is a question of an expenditure of a million dollars. The
time will come when the Valley will
be a fruit-grower's delight.
J. K. Robinson, Fairview, having
sold his ranch to the Brown Bros.,
went north by way of Penticton.—
Mr. and Mrs. A. Piper returned to
Fairview from Washington and are
living in the Nichol Cottage. Mr.
Piper is preparing to build a house
on his ranch.—The Rev. Mr. Cameron was in town on Friday and
drove to Okanagan Falls on Saturday.— Mr. Brown and family after
spending a few holidays on their
ranch near the Cliff returned to
Fairview on Thursday. — E. G.

hopes were disappointed, but it WH
fair and honorable prospecting.
The "Joe Dandy" Was worked on
such evidence and afterward bonded
for $50,000. For a time this mine
gave good returns and several ten
thousand dollar bricks were sent
out from it before the ledge was
lost. The Joe Dandy paid for itself.
In the future some of these abandoned claims may yield good returns
and make millionaires. Even now
their ore indicates that in a short
time there will be two claims in
that class.    So mote it be.

400   French-Canadians   for  the
Fraser River Mills
The time fixed for the arrival of
the French Canadians at the Fraser
River Mills from the province of
Cjuebec, has been delayed for one
month on account of the fact that
there is not yet accommodation for
them. They were due to arrive here
in September, but their departure
from Quebec was delayed for this
reason. They will now leave their
homes on September 23, in special
cars provided by the Fraser River
Lumber Company and will come direct to New Westminster over the
C. P. R. They will arrive here about
October 7.
Elaborate preparations are being
made at Millside for the reception
of this party. In order to provide
ample accommodation 40 cottages
.ue being erected on lhe Company's
properly near the mill. Each cottage is placed on a one acre lot aiul
the tenant is given an opportunity
to purchase this property on easy
payments. When fully paid for the
employee has a home of his own.
In the event of his leaving the mill
before the property is fully paid for
the company will repurchase the j
property allowing the tenant tin
amount equal to what he has paid
with interest. In addition to these
cottages a large hotel capable ol
accommodating 223 people is being
erected and will be ready for use by
Octobtr 1st.
Needless to say advantages of this
kind are proving attractive to
the French-Canadian mill hands
and lumbermen, and Mr. Thereaux
and Father O'Boyle are finding
little difficulty in securing good
men. The chance of a steady job
at higher wages and with a home
available on easy terms in a country
just now entering on a new era ol
prosperity il sufficient to induce almost any one to leave home.
Some 400 persons have been in-
il'iced tO make the trip and will arrive here at the end of the month.
The party includes about 75 workmen with thti- families, the men all
being experienced in lumber mill
work in the northern part ot Cjuebec. The Fraser River Mills will
operate for an indefinite time both
night and day and a considerable
addition to the regular sta/T is required. A part of the men will
supply lhe addition required while
the others will replace Hindus, who
.ire found lo be undesirable citizens
in manv cif.es. Another part) tt
French Canadians will be brought
out to the mill later in the year and
this will be continued until nothing
but white labor is employed at these
mills.   Columbian,

Foster on Naval Defence
Halifax, Aug. 23.- Hon. G. K.
Foster addressed a large audience
tonight, delivering a strictly nonpartisan address on an imperial
subject. His subject was "Aspects of Canadian Nationality, with
special reference to naval defence,
and Canada's relation to the
Fmpire.
Canadians should strive for independence as part ofthe great allies
in a worldwide power. Canada's
duty and privilege to take pail in
the defence of the empire was eloquently portrayed.
ln closing Mr. Foster dwelt
strongly on the foolishness of the
cry against militarism. The bloodiest wars of the world had occurred
in the last fifty years, and Canada
must have a share in the world's
militarism or be brushed aside.
Canada must be armed or trampled
upon.

Harry Frame of Kelowna, recently of the Orchard City Record, is at
present on the staff of the Chronicle.
* Provincial Constable Joseph Wilson, stationed at Creston, died in
the hospital at Cranbrook from
pneumonia,    after   a   brief  illness.
Returning to his ranch the other
day after an absence of a couple of
weeks, R. C. Armstrong was surprised to find one of his apple trees
in full and gorgeous bloom. The
tree is a four-year-old, and blossomed this spring, but without fruiting.
While Lord Strathcona and a
party were driving out trom Vernon
to the Coldstream ranch on Saturday, the horses ran away and the
carriage upset. W. R. Megaw of
Vernon had his leg broken. Strath-
cona's right arm was slightly
bruised.
It is reported that in Prince Rupert Lord Crey showed his interest
by becoming the owner of several
lots there. This is believed to be
His Excellency's second purchase of
property in this province. When
he passed this way previously he
purchased a ranch in the Kootenay
Lake district.
An entire reorganization of the
fruit inspection stations along the
international boundary line has been
effected by Thomas Cunningham,
provincial inspector of fruit pests.
New nation! have been created at
Cascade, Kini_-._jate, Myncaster and
Bridesville. It is likely quarantine
stations will be created at Osoyoos
ttnd Keremeos.
It was thought a short time tgo
that there would be no session of
the County Court in this district
this fall, hut a case has been entered for trial, and it is now announced,
as will be seen by advertisement,
that a sitting will be held on Tuesday Oct. 12. As a matter of convenience to the parties the court will
be held at Penticton.
A new town, to be called Carbon-
dale, has been platted by the Mc-
liillivary Creek Coal and Coke
Company, in the Crow's Nest district. Rumor has it that the entire
output of the coal mine lias been
contracted for by one of the new
transcontinental railroads, all of
which are known to have their Wywt
on promising properties in the Crow
district.
L. Ci. MacHaffie, Homer McLean
iind Miss Myrtle McLean of Hedley
were in town yesterday on a holiday trip. They were on their way
to the Coast, and after visiting
Seattle and other points will make a
tour of the Kootenays and other
eastern sections ofthe province before returning home. R. A. Chester of Victoria is taking Mr. Mac-
Haffie's place in the B. N. A. bank
during the latter'.s absence.
A magistrate's court is called for
to-day, to hear a  charge   preferred
by I). Gillespie against Frank
Connors. The hitter was employed
until recently at the livery stable,
and it is charged that he kept money
that should have gone to the proprietor. Connors defends his actions and has employed Lawyer
Patten of Hedley, as counsel. The
prosecution has secured the services
of W. T. Giihan, of Penticton.
At the meeting of Presbytery recently held at Armstrong it was decided to make a rearrangement of
the parishes in this district. Rev.
Mr. Cameron will drop out Okanagan Falls and Fairview, and take
in Hedley instead. It has not yet
been decided whether he will hold
service on alternate Sundays here
and at Hedley, or both the same
day. Rev. Mr. Thurburn-Conn, instead of Hedley, will attend to territory further up above Princeton.
The New Westminster Board of
Trade hopes that with the completion of the V. V. & E. Railway
through the Hope Pass route, the
COal companies in the Similkameen
and Nicola Valley regions will ship
their product to that city, which
will be made a coaling base for the
large steamship companies operating on the Coast. The expectation
is that the port will be a terminal
point for the Canadian Northern
and Grand Trunk Bad that New
Westminster will become a coaling
centre for ocean traffic.
A broken rail was responsible for
a had wreck on the Great Northern
railway near Fernie on Saturday
morning shortly after 11 o'clock,
and its a result five cars of coal
were ditched and reduced to kindling wood. The train, composed of
a long siring of coal cars, bound
south, had just cleared the bridge
across the Elk river at West Fernie
when a spread or hroken rail threw
live of the cars over the embankment, but fortunately the engine
and tender remained on the track.
A braktmaa was standing on one
of the cars when it was derailed but
he succeeded in  jumping lo   safety.
