Estimates Furnished,

Parish Formed.
The meeting of the  members of
the Church of England held on
Monday night last was well attended. The forming of a Parish to be
known as St. Johns Mission, Keremeos, and the election of officers to
carry on the work was the chief
business of the meeting. It was
decided that no action to secure a
local incumbent would be taken
until the spring, hut in the meantime an eifort will be made to secure ]
a monthly visit from Mr. Cleland of
Penticton, a sum  to   cover   his   ex- |
penses being guaranteed.
The following officers were elected :    Wardens, T. VV. Coleman and !
\V. M. Frith; vestrymen,    R.    Elm-
hirst.and R.  II. Carmichael.
Police Court News.
The crop of police court cases before magistrate Coleman during the
past week was unusually heavy and
included  a   couple   of  charges of
assault and   batten,   the   result   of
too much boose.
Frank Thornton had Billy Cohen
subpoenaed in s dispute oxer some
hay but it was settled out of court
by the latter giving up the hay and
each contributing an equal share
towards the costs.
S. Breden, otherwise known as
"Alkali Ike," had joe Marcel on the
carpet for having attached himself
to some wood, which it appears he
was perfectly entitled to. It was a
rather complicated case, involving
several parties and the transfer of a
bill of sale of the disputed fuel. The
court succeeded in untangling the
snarl and each, apparently, j,rot what
was coming to him.

G. N. Officials in Town.
r. II. Burnham, district  passenger and   freight   sgent   of Grand
Forks, was in Keremeos on Tues-
day between trains on one ol his
regular visits. On th* same train
was James Poylc, asst. supt., of
Spokane, anil C. II. Moriarity, road
master, who combined a tour of inspection with the annual examination of the G. N. employees here.
The examination was based on instructions contained in new books
recently issued by the company to
employees, and proved easy to the
■gent and section foreman here.
Ring Kennedy, veteran show
man, ventriloquist, conjuror and
lime-light artist, who has appeared
before Keremeos audiences, at more
or less regular intervals, during the
last decade, gave one of his popular
performances in the town hall on
Wednesday evening to a fair sized
audience. Ring is now a fruit
rancher in the neighboring state of
Washington and seems to have relegated his former profession to the
position of side-line, but at that he!
gives one of the best and most
mirth-provoking performances of
ils kind that it has been our pleasure
to attend. Neither his voice nor
his hand has lost any of its cunning ;
and for his moving pictures he has

A little disappointment was teit,
when toward the end of the closing

proves more than sufficient  for the1
entire performance, suddenly gave

darkness to form their own conjectures as tO whether or not "Tow-
ser" was ever restored to his owner.
King travels In his own conveyance and left here for Medley and
Princeton. While here he was the

Hindoo Plot.
Tuesday's Vancouver World publishes a sensational story that Hritish secret service men have recently unearthed Hindus who are directing their efforts toward an uprising
in India. It is stated that native
spies have been working under tIndirection of two white officers all
along the coast for several months.
They have found  the  headquarters
of the revolutionary party located
here and live Sikhs of hi(,rh council
are known to be implicated. Three
formerly worked in Vancouver mills
but all have now crossed the border.
It is stated that one leader when
cornered by lhe officers made fl
Statement tO obtain his release.
Customs Receipts.
Customs receipts for the outport
of Keremeos show a falling off for
the month of November compared
vvith preceding months, the result
no doubt of the approach  of   winter
and less activity in construction
work up the valley. The BgurCfl
for   the   month are :     Free   foods,
1635.00; dutiable, $2393.00; duty
collected, W99.7S.
Elect Officers.

election of officers in the town ha"ll
on Tuesday evening, when the following  officers vv ere elected :
Master C". I.. Cummings.

Rec. Secretary D.   McCurdy.
Fin. Secretary F. Mills.
Treasurer P. Bromley.
Lecturer P. J. Innis.
During the past year the lodge
has added a number of new members to its roll and is now in a prosperous and thriving condition. It
is probable that future meetings
may all be held in the town hall,
arrangements to that effect beinjj
under way.

enjoyable time tripping the light
fantastic until the hands of the dock
warned them of the approach of
Sunday mottling.
On Monday and Tuesday Mr.
and Mrs. Elmhirst moved their effects up tO the hotel and now are
comfortably settled in their new
home. Mi. Elmhirst's long residence in the valley, and thorough
intimacy vvith th - residents, lit him
for the enterprise in which he is
launching, while the presence ot
Mrs. Elmhirst at the Central will
supply all that was lacking to make

The Canadian Market For Canadian Fruit   More Gold Medals.
An attempt to drive out foreign
fruits from Hritish Columbia coast
cities and the Canadian praitie provinces, ,-md to supplant this foreign
fruit with the product grown in the
interior of Hritish Columbia, is the
aim of the British Columbia Prull
Growers'   association,   which   this
week started an agitation to interest
influential bodies in  lhe   movement.
'The Vancouver and Victoria
boards of trade will be among the
first to discuss this question with a
view lo procuring a reduction in
llie freight and express rates from
the interior oi the province, and the
boards of trade and other organizations of the middle west will immediately lake up the matter with a
similar object in view.
11 is claimed that, at present rales,
the margin of profit to the fruil
grower after paying expenses is so
small as to be unrcmuneratiie and
this is said to be specially true of
the tender fruits, such as peaches,
grapes and tomatoes (Webster clas-
es the tomatoes among the Iruits.)
If favorable rates could be procured it is confidently believed that
fruit  grown   in   Hritish   Columbia
WOUld soon drive out the product of
foreign competitors, while the fruit
industry of this province would
grow to enormous proportions, and
thus assist in retaining part of the
nation's wealth within Canadian

pleased with the result of the elections in Vale-Cariboo, lie referred
to the disadvantage which Princeton is subject lo from lack ot

makes   the   journey   as   long   troni
there to Prinoeton as from  Victoria
to Oroville. The Governor leaves
shortly for England on an extended
visit, returning next spring.   A host
of friends wish him seasonable compliments and a pleasant voyage.

Home-seekers or excursionists from the
East have a choice of routes to Keremeos. The Great Northern Railway, which taps the Prairie Provinces at numerous
points, furnishes a quick, comfortable and convenient means
of reaching the Similkameen at rates the same as to corresponding points on the C.P.R. Or excursionists may come as
far as Midway over the Crow's Nest branch of the C.P.R. and
the remaining 90 miles over the Great Northern.

The touch of wintry weather
which the Similkameen has been experiencing this week is a reminder
that the   season   is   advancing   and
that Christmas, with its festivities,
will soon be here. On Tuesday the
mercury dropped to 10 above zero.
So far no snow has fallen at Keremeos and the weather is so clear
and bright that the erispness is
agreeable rather than otherwise.
The recent cold davs h ive caused
a coating of ice to form on places
on the river where there is no current and the youth of Keremeos are
indulging in the rare pastime of skating. At Hedley the cold sn; p has
so diminished the   supply   ot   Water
that the Daly   Reduction  Company
has had to shut down for lack of
power. Construction work cut the
railroad and irrigation ditch, however, vvill not be interrupted.
