The movement of new settlers to
the Similkameen has been steadily
increasing since it started early in
the spring, and of late every few-
days sees the advent of fresh parties
of land-seekers. What is more to
the point is that so large a proportion of them decide here to end their
quest, even after they have traveled
through Other districts much more
actively boomed and advertised.
Their choice of Keremeos as an
abiding- place is all the more convincing a tribute to its attractive
qualities from the fact that it is
made deliberately and after full opportunity of comparison vvith other
well known regions that would
seem hard to surpass for beauty
and fertility.
A party of five came in last
Thursday with Messrs Lawrence
and McTavish of the IL C. Fruit
Land Co. They were Hugh M.
Shaw, J. Blake, Geo. Blake, Walter Watt and Joseph Segar, all from
Manton, Alta., or its vicinity. He-
fore they returned home on Monday
four out ofthe live had bought lots
in the Shatford subdivision just
west of the town.
The new purchasers are men of
substance who are buying with a
view to making their homes here as
soon as their lands are brought to
the proper stage of culture. Mr.
Shaw has recently retired from the
real estate business, in which he
was engaged on an extensive scale
at Nanton—and from his experience
in real estate it may be presumed
that he knew what he vvas about
when he came to buy land for his
own use. Mr. Watt and the
Messrs Blake are successful rancher*; of the Nanton district who aim
to leave the plains for a pleasanter
abode in the valley of fruit. Mr.
Segar, while pleased as the others
were vvith the location visited, has
not yet come to a decision to invest.
Mr. Shaw lias engaged Mr. Win.
Cameron, one of the recent settlers
in the neighborhood, to plant and
care for his plot until such time as
he is ready to move to it.
Another party Irom Ihe Nanton
district is expected soon, on the
same errand that drew last week's
visitors.
T. S. Drcnnan, of Alameda,
Sask., mention of whom was made
last week, has purchased land both
from the Keremeos Land Co. and
from the H. C. Fruit Land Co.—
from the former a tract within the
townsite and from the latter a plot
of 20 acres in the Shatford subdivision. He returned to Vancouver
on Monday, accompanied by Mr.
Knowling, who has purchased some
properly but will remain for the
present at his home at the coast.
Mr. Harrison, of Oxbow, Sask.,
is another ofthe visitors this week,
having- had his attention called to
the district through the recent arrivals from Alameda. Mr. Harrison was formerly in the furniture
business, but has disposed of his
business and of his household effects as well, and is now with his
wile and children seeking a location
for a new home.
OLALLA.
An authenticated statement from
one of those interested in the property is to the effect that the Apex
vvill start work on June 1st, provided the snow permits. This is good
news, as there are several miners
in this camp who have done no
work since the Bullion shut down
last December. There is a possibility that one or two nearby claims
may employ two or three men each
in development work.
On Monday W'elbv 's old Concord
stage coach going to Penticton was
loaded inside and out, one passenger being perched on the top, j
where, probably, man had never
ridden before. There were several
mining men among the crowd.
Close behind the stage vvas a four-
hot se wagonette packed with land-
seekers from the Northwest, who
have been inspecting the fruit lands
neat Keiemeos. Being at the hub
ofthe fruit land boom, you probably know the result of their visit. It
is a great pity the weather was so
inclement during a great deal of
their visit.
If copper would only go up to 17
cents and stay there, there would
soon be some activity in copper
claims, not only in the Similkameen
but all over the province. But vvith
all these new wireless inventions it
begins to look as if old King Cop-1
per had been dealt a mortal blow in ;
lhe solar plexus. However, the]
new , or re-discovery of the process
at tempering copper to thc hardness
ot steel may give the old metal a
new lease of life. Let us hope so.
But has that important secret of
the ancients actually been discovered i
I have it on good authority that
there are four or five men at the
Daly Reduction Co's mill bus)
sampling the Nickel Plate ores, and,
on not quite so good authority, that
the said sampling is being done for
Jim Hill.    (Juien sabe ?
Some day the smellers of the
Boundary will want our iron, and
we have vast bodies of iron that
usually carry from $1.30 to $.1.50 in
gold. Some of these ledges of,
pyrrhotite also carry small quantities ot silier and copper, and I have
also had traces of nickel. So the
gold values in the  iron   would   pay
for mining, and if transportation
were cheapened by tramways connecting the properties with the railway the smelter people would soon
be over here inspecting some of our
best-grade iron caps.
These ores would not be smelted
for the iron they contain, but as a
flux to assist the smelting of richer
and more refractory ores. There is,
however, a good sized vein of hematite iron ore about two miles north
of Olalla on the mountain south of
Cedar Creek. This red hematite is
the iron of commerce and carries
about 70 per cent, iron, whereas
pyrrhotite (magnetic iron pyrites)
carries about 57 per cent. iron.
Some day our iron ore may be
utilized for the manufacture of iron.
Again, quien sabe?
Percy Marks is making a roadway into his ranch on the east side
of Keremeos creek. Jim Corrie
and Jack Klliott came down from
the ranch on Monday night, having
"slashed" through the brush along
the fence line between the Smither-
atn ranch on the north and the
Cohen ranch on the south, taking
15 feet on each side of the fence.
This will give Mr. Marks .10 feet
road width access to his ranch, but
at present only ten feet will he
either "corduroyed" or filled in with
rock and rubble, of which there is
plenty close at hand.
Preparing for the 24th.
At a meeting of citizens held in
the Town Hall on Monday evening
further steps were taken to prepare
for a celebration in Keremeos on
the 24th of May. J. J. Armstrong
vvas elected chairman and (i. Mil-
burn secretary. A program of
sports and amusements was outlined, sufficient to occupy the best
part of the day, and committees
struck to look after the details connected with them. Races of various
kinds will be held, as vv ell as athletic contests, trap shooting, baseball, and other amusements, to
conclude with a ball in the evening.
It is also expected that the Oroville
band will be engaged for the day.
The railway authorities will be asked to make special train-time for
the Convenience of visitors from
down the vallev.
Several liberal subscriptions towards the expenses of the dav have
been promised, and it is hoped that
all citizens will contribute liberally
to make up good purses.

of the English climate and was
obliged lo move lo a drier country.
He was well advised when he chose
the genial Similkameen.
A meeting of bachelors of the
town and vicinity was held on Saturday evening to complete arrangements for the ball to be given by
them on the 30th inst. Some
changes were made in the personnel of the committees. It was decided to get the Oroville orchestra
if convenient. A difference of opinion had arisen as to the best place
lo hold the ball, and a vote vvas
taken, with the result that the hall
at the Centre was chosen, the
majority of those present considering that the most convenient spot
lor the occasion.
The   adjourned    hearing    of   the
charge against  II. M.  Stevens, of

Te ll"' editor of the Chronicle :
In your editorial under the above
heading you stigmatize my letter on
the mining amendments as a "bogev

a malicious statement on your part
or else you penned it thoughtlessly,
because you knew it was not a
"bogey of my Imagination." Vou
knew I cut that paragraph anent
the new mining law from a Vancouver paper, because I showed
you the cutting and you read it in
my presence before I wrote the letter for publication. It vvas not my
imagination at all, but the thoughtless stupidity of a Vancouver editor.
Since I wrote that letter I have
Obtained a copy ofthe amendments

But if his vision of a lot of surveyors "seeing" the Premier and the

not a bogey of the imagination, we
are at a loss how else to characterize it.—Bo.]

ADJOINING THE TOWN OF
KEREMEOS, B.C.
The Victoria Times tells a story
that will be appreciated by all who
have experienced the nuisance of
hens in a garden. A young lady
near Beaumont planted a dollar's
worth of fancy sweet peas. Soon
afterwards she saw an old hen busily scratching them up and eating
them. She gave chase and captured the trespasser, beheaded it,
opened its crop, and in a few minutes the seeds were in the ground
again, apparently none the worse
for their travels.

affray on the Indian reserve near

Dr. McPadyen and \V. M. McKay, of San Krancisco, both old
friends of Wm. Ring, arrived in
Keremeos yesterday and will spend
some time here as his guests. The
doctor has tor a long time been engaged in the practise ol dentistry at

A telegram from Tacoma, Wash.,
announcing the death oi his mother,
was recoiled by K. I.. Bogart on
Saturdav, and with Mrs. Bogart he
left at once lor the south. Death
Was due to blood poisoning,   caused
by treatment of a corn, which amputation of lhe loo and then ot llie

Rev,  Mr.   CatneitHI,   in   response

tii gel spliced.     Keremeoa  having
no issuer of marriage licenses, they
were obliged to go to fairview instead. Mr. Shatford, who was in

Water has now been turned into
the irrigation canal for its whole
length) with the result that it has
stood the test well and been pronounced in satisfactory working
order. Its completion marks a distinct Stage   in   the   development   of
the Keremeos district; in tact it
may be said to be the real beginning of development for the major
part oi it. Up to now good progress has been made in settlement
and planting in a sporadic way, but
until now comparatively little could
be done in that direction on the big
subdivisions to be served by the
canal. Now that these lands are
fully ready to be settled and worked,
the  companies  handling   lhem   will
conduct a vigorous   campaign   to
gel them occupied as speedily as
possible, and from the readiness
with which large sections of them
have been already taken up, it will
only be a matter of a very short'
time till the last acre is taken in
hand and put to its destined use.
The great spiral tunnels between
Field and Hector, costing S1.500,-

of between twenty and   thiriy   miles

line of the C.P.R.   is  now  tremen*
' dons, and as soon as the new tunnels ate in use the cost of operation
vvill be ieduced to   much   less   than
half the present expenditure.

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 Pair at New
Westminster out of 100 pounds of assorted fruits Keremeos captured some 2.1 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,  $-  5 and   10  acre   Blocks   with   a   well   laid   out townsite
now doing an active business.
Our terms arc liberal.    One-third cash.     Balance in 3 payments at 7 per cent.
