VV. J. Stover, who left the valley
last December intending to make a
lengthy sojourn in Southern California, and possibly take up a permanent residence there, surprised
his Keremeos friends by alighting
at the depot here yesterday morning. He was anything but enthusiastic about the climate of the south
country and   stated   that  it  was  a
d sight colder there than  here,
or at least that he felt it more. The
country there, at present, he described as one vast puddle and he
was glad to get back once more
into the bright sunshine.
Prior to going away he had placed his fruit lot with the Land Company to sell for him, and though he
had written some days ago asking
them to take it off the market, it
was not till he reached here and
learned that it had not been sold
that he felt relieved.
His brief visit to some of the
most lauded districts of the Pacific-
States has but increased his already
high opinion of the climate and possibilities of this favored valley. So
it will prove with anyone who
moves out after living here a year.
They will be glad to return.
Burrell Creates Favorable Impression in Federal House.
In the Federal House last week
the members from British Columbia
were all on the floor and "were listened to with great attention by
Premier Laurier" according to eastern exchanges. Mr. Burrell's
speech on conditions here was considered excellent, many eastern
members on both sides declaring
that they had not understood the
situation fully and were pleased to
see it so ably and fairly dealt with.
The position taken by this province
in reference to the Chinese and Japs
as differing from that taken in reference to Hindus vvas dealt with
by Mr. Burrell and the claims of the
province for better treatment from
Ottawa were strongly presented.
A letter to a prominent Victoria
resident from one in the Ottawa
House declares that "Yale-Cariboo
made no error in its choice of a
member in the interests of the district and the province generally."—

South African Confederation.
The British domains of South
Africa, so recently the scene of war
between Kngland and the Dutch,
now form the stage of a movement
for unity which promises to be one
of the most remarkable conciliations
in history, adding to the British
empire a great confederation ranking almost wilh Australia and Canada in importance. Representatives
of the four colonies have been in
conference several weeks on a plan
of union.
Cecil Rhodes probably had little
idea before he died that within ten
years after the destruction of Hutch
independence in South Africa a
COWpany dominated by such hostile
spirits as Dr. Jameson, who led the
, raid which brought on the war,
president Stein of the Orange Free
State and the two great Boer generals Botha and DeWet, would be
Conferring amicably for the purpose
of welding the Dutch and Uitland-
ers into a semi-independent nation
under the Biitish flag. More noteworthy still is the fact that the
British progress has been marked
by harmony and is likely to be concluded with success.

Another Cold Wave East of
The Rockies.
A dispatch dated Washington
Jan. 30th, says : With a temperature falling rapidly in its path and
snow and sleet in many sections,
marking its sweep eastward, the
centre of the storm that has raged
with great force through practically
all the country east of the Rocky
mountains, today is centered over
New Kngland. Throughout the
west and largely in the south there
is a cold snap and the weather
bureau today predicts freezing temperature in the fruit belt of Florida.
I Snow has fallen west of there as far
las the Mississippi river, north of
j Florida. It will be much colder in
the eastern states tonight and tomorrow. In the far west intense
cold is reported, 24 degrees below
zero being reached in the northwest.
Peter Veregin, the Doukhobor
leader, visited Grand Forks last
week after a search for land in the
Okanagan and Similkameen districts, aud he immediately decided
on obtaining land here. Negotiations were opened for the Coryell
ranch of 900 acres for $..9,000, but
the deal was not closed at the last
report. While this indicates the
value of land here, it is not desirable that a band of these people
locate here. They are a drag on
progress and of no advantage to the
district, as they import all their
needs by wholesale. They are far
from being desirable along moral
lines also.--(irand Forks Gazette.
Local and General.

After a pleasant fortnight's visit
to friends here, Mr. G. B. Murphy,
Miss Murphy and Mrs. G. C. Armstrong leave today via Penticton
and the C P. R. for Vancouver,
where they will spend a few weeks
with relatives before returning to
their homes in Manitoba.
The committee in charge of the
entertainment to be given under the
auspices of the Ladies' Guild in the
town hall on Friday evening, the
12th inst., are working hard to
make it a grand success. The
stage is being enlarged and otherwise fitted up for the occasion. For
full particulars see announcement
in columns of this issue.
On Wednesday of last week the
S. S. Okanagan was unable to
make the Penticton wharf and passengers and mail had to be unloaded at Summerland. This was responsible for Thursday's mail from
- Penticton and intermediate points
not reaching here till 6:30 p. m.,
and as a result a bunch of correspondence from Olalla was received
at this office too late for publication.
Sixteen surveyors arrived in Oroville on Wednesday night and yesterday set out on the work of surveying the route for the proposed
branch of the Great Northern between that point and Wenatchee.
A similar party of surveyors are operating from the Wenatchee end.
This cut-off, when completed, vvill
place Keremeos within 200 miles ol
Wenatchee and will shorten the distance from here to Seattle by about
225 miles.
One of the most enjoyable social
events of the many that have marked thc present season in Keremeos
was the dance given by the host
and hostess ofthe Hotel Keremeos
on Friday evening last. The spacious dining room was temporarily
thrown into a dancing room and an
j excellent one it proved. Dainty refreshments were served by Ihe hostess and her daughters, who were
most tactful in looking after the
comfort and entertainment of their
many guests. Among those from
a distance present were : Mr. and
Miss Murphy, Carberry, Man.;
Mrs. G. C. Armstrong, Winnipeg;
Miss I.owndes, Medley, who very

they don't intend the claim to remain undisturbed very long.

Big doings marked the close of
the celebration ofthe Chinese New
Vear in Keremeos on Saturday evening last. The rivalry which exists between the residents of the
upper and lower towns apparently
extends to the chinks, and Tommy
Sing and Ching Kee, the high
mucky mucks among their respective parties vied to out-do each
other in the splendor of their demonstrations. After all there is
much that is human in the pig-tail.
Ching decided to spend his money
on a dinner for his white friends at
the Central hotel and the excellence
of the repast and his liberality in
sending forth invitations stamp him
as a prince at entertaining. The
services of a special chef had been
secured for the occasion and in the
large airy dining room of the Central Hotel plates were set for 52
guests and every one was taken.
At the conclusion of dinner a brilliant display of fireworks was given
in front of the hotel. In the lower
town Tommy Sing, apparently feeling that his prestige vvas suffering,
kept up an incessant din of fireworks, resembling the crackling of
musketry, for over an hour. If
there is anything in the Chinese belief which prompts their actions on
these occasions the celestials of
Keremeos certainly should be exempt from any attention from the
"evil one" for the year 1909.

FI.IOAY,  FI.H1UARY ,S,  1909,
There can he little room for doubt
thai the vear 1909 will be one of
unprecedented activity in the Similkameen,    The wonderful miner-
paths, that it is not easily worked
from there. Neither is it always
desirable, freight rates considered,
fur business men here to deal with
Vancouver houses. Spokane, by
reason of its greater accessibility
from here under existing conditions,
is bound to receive it portion of the
trade of the Similkameen. Once
the connecting link in the V. V. &
H. is completed, however, and the
freight hall from Vancouver to Keremeos is reduced from 750 to 200
miles it will naturally become our
trading place and a market for outproduce.
