The meeting being held on the evening of court day many from Keremeos    and    other    outside    points
were present R. Elmhirst occupied the chair and introduced as the
lirst speaker, Dennis Murphy, a
well known politician of Ashcroft.
Duncan Rosa followed with his
campaign speech, showing why he

Surplus of Canned Goods.
A despatch from Piclou, Oat., tO
the Victoria 'Times says there vv ill
he little money in canned goods
this year. 'This is the opinion of
the member of one of the largest
independent canning concerns in
the country.
'The trouble arises from two
sources. Last season the pack was
a fair one, but the prices were high*
er than usual. There was not, as
a rule, so keen a demand on wholesale houses, and wholesalers in
many instances have considerable
stock on hand from a year ago.
Till these are gone, the wholesalers

"It is no exageratkm to say  that
this valley is producing apples that
will compare with those of any in
Canada, and some of the vaiieties
have won admiration from the
growers of Ontario, who have argued in the past that fruit grown

of its riv a!s. they now -admit they
are wrong. A large number of
Ontario men with good truit-grovv-
ing experience and others from the
orchard districts nf the States are
settling in the Similkameen valley,
and it is going ahead in satisfactory
style. Earl Gray has purchased a
large tract of fruit-growing land in
British Columbia and is developing
it, following the example of Lord
Aberdeen. Karl Grey said : "It
is not only a profitable business, it
is a fascinating art."

Through Train Service.
After being assured by no lesser
an authority than Mr. Craig, general passenger agent of the Great
Northern, that if the people of- this
valley wished a through train service from Spokane, and would send
in a petition to that effect, there
would not be the slightest difficulty
in securing it, citizens here are beginning to wonder why there is no
sign of something doing. It is now
nearly seven weeks since such a
petition, signed by nearly every
able bodied citizen in the Similkameen, from Chopaca to Princeton,
was forwarded to the General Passenger Agent, but up to date it has
not been accorded the courtesy of a
Was Mr. Craig merely jesting
when he P"t us to the trouble of
circulating that petition throughout
the length and breadth ofthe valley
or has he decided that his promise
was a rash one which could not
conveniently be carried out ? If the
former, the jest is devoid of all
humor; if the latter, an explanation
would be appreciated, or at least
the courtesy of a reply.
Cost of G.T.P.
In the construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific the Dominion government undertook two main obligations viz :
1st. To guarantee bonds for three-
quarters of the cost of the line to be
built by the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway from Winnipeg to the
Pacific Coast.
2nd, To build a line of railway
from Winnipeg eastward to Monc-
ton via Quebec, and to lease it to
the (irand Trunk Pacific kailway
(."ompany at an annual rental of 3
per cent, ofthe construction cost,
the rental, however, not to begin
till seven years after the work was
As regards the cost to the country
the following estimate submitted bv
Mr. Graham, minister of railway*
and canals, during the last session,
may be considered as fairly accurate:

Cost of terminals        4,000,000

Compared with these figures,
DunCWI Ross' estimate of the actual
cost to the people of Canada, 2li
million dollars, looks small Indeed,
Notes and Comments.
On another page of this issue
will be found a communication from
Wm. Ring in which he advocates
the transfer of the court house and
the government agent's office from
Fairview to Keremeos. If, as the
writer suggests, it is only necessary
for the people of Keremeos to ask,
and "presto, change," the thing is
done, then the request should go
out by first mail. Certainly the
matter is deserving of earnest consideration on the part of residents of
"the hub."

During the past week there was
a general shuffle in the livery intei-
ests in Keremeos. There was rumor of P. J. Innis purchasing J. F,
Rover's livery business ami st.age
equipment aiul merging the two
into one and Dougald Gillespie
purchasing the barn for use in his
freighting and draying business.
Such an arrangement would appear
lo have much in its favor, but rivalry apparently crept in and the
sequel is that Gillespie has purchased ami will operate Rover's
business in connection with his
own, and Innis has secured the contract of freighting the concentrates
ofthe Daly Reduction C'o. It is
Rover's intention, as soon as lie
has his affairs wound up here, to
move lo Kelowna, where he intends
establishing a large and strictly up-
to-date livery business. We regret
his departure from Keremeos because Frank ia a hustler of the
right sort. In Mr. Gillespie, however, he leaves a successor whose
thorough familiarity with the essential details of the business ami
whose wide acquaintance will be a
guarantee ot lus success.
