have to be taken oil.
It is very properly suggested that
a meteorological station should he
established   at    Keremeos,   aiul   no
doubt the Government would do so
if it was asked. There is little expense attached to a local station,
except lor lhe cost of instruments,
and doubtless almost any settled

the trifle of time and attention required lo lake the records.
Mr. and Mrs. t'rookei arrived in
Keremeos on Saturday, having been

caused unusual damage to the railway bridges and roads.

Thev are delighted with the Similkameen and purpose investing in
fruit lots here.
Wheat in Manitoba will be all
put in six weeks ahead of last year,
and there will be a 25 per cent.
larger area seeded to the prime
cereal. The crop will be in the
ground two weeks earlier than the
average year, and earlier than any
recorded season. Two weeks al
this etui is a fortnight's immunit)
from September frosts. In a word,
seeding was never more favorable.
Mm the harvest is a long way off.

arrangem its for the -lib of Mav
celebration have made good progress toward securing lhe lirst requisite a sufficiency ot money.
Those   who   have   subscribed   have
coma down liberally,  aiul  there is
nil reason to doubt that these vet

'The gale from the west on Frida)
breaks the record for Keremeos.
Late in the afternoon clouds of dust
were in evidence, and fences were
i peat in  many   places.     'The   flume
or trestle across Keremeos Creek
at James  Etmhirst's  fruit   lot   was
badly Wrecked.      Trees were broken
bv the gale, aiul   Supervisoi  Dear-
doll's force will be   kept   bus)   lor  a
few days clearing awa) obstructions
on ihe King's highway. The storm
was general throughout the west.
,md reports of serious damage come
from main points, especially in the
Stales.
Pete Miomlcv has left al this office
an article which he found on the
Street, and as it is made of iron ot
steel, and Mr. Mromlev, though a
master of the iron trade, cannot
jfive il a name, we are rather at a
loss i to how to Tuul lhe owner.
It maV be described as | bar of  en
ameled or painted metal, the main
pari about 2 feet long, I inch
wide and I pica thick. It is slightly curved, and has a sort ot a cur -
eyCUC on one end and some kind ol
contraption on the other end. An
inscription is stamped on it, " Pal.
9-14)3," which, though the meaning
is not very clear, would seem to indicate that it belongs to an Irishman. Guesses as to its nature
range from a brake lor a babv-carriage lo a hood-brace for a motor
car. The owner may recover by
calling and making an affidavit as
to what the thin^ is intended for.

"Performance is better than promises," said Mr. Hill in discussing
the Greal Northern project for building a line from Winnipeg to Vancouver through Canadian territory.
"A beginning has been made. At
intermediate points we have many
mites of completed road that would
furnish links in lhe proposed  route.
We have first-:lass   terminals   at
Winnipeg, and have also reached
Brandon, in the wheat-growing
belt. But the construction of such
a road will ake time. 'That's why
I don't like lo make promises. We
divl not 'ii mie to extend the V.Y.

Princeton 'his year, and yet we will
reach that point before Christmas,
Difficulty is being experienced in securing the proper gradients over the

"Perhaps you will not believe it,
but our engineer* had to hang on by
means of ropes in making their surveys down the valley of the Coquihalla il is a veritable box canyon.
Rest assured of one thing. All these
engineering dime ilties will be overcome, and before very long I again
prefer performance to promises we
will have a direct line from Vancouver to the Similkameen, Boundary and Kootenays." Vancouver

According to the Seattle 'Times,
M. K. Rodgers, for fifteen years a
special representative of the Anaconda Mining Company, the personal friend of Marcus Daly, representative of the Guggenheimi in Alaska
ami former mining adviser lor James
J. Hill, has brought suit tii recover
quarter interest in the Nickle Plate
mine at Hedley, estimated lo be
worth more than $4,000,000. An
oiler to sell lhe mine at a 84,000,000
valuation was turned down recently.
The. case will have to be fought before British courts, tor ||K. property
is located on Jatne . J. Hill's new
Victoria, Vancouucr and Eastern
Railroad, now building through
British Columbia.
Rodgers claims in his suit thai he
was a mining engineer sent ott bv
M.iiiiis |)alj during his lifetime to
find profitable   mining    propositions
on the basis of 75 aiul  25 pet   cent
split.     Rodgers   paid  a   quarter   ol
hi    expenses anil as   an   illustration
of his work for Da!y, he travelled
135,000 mie. vvilhin three years to
find a profitable minin},' venture.
Ho travelled 36,000 miles in Mexico
alone.
Heavy falls of '.now occurred in

and the   temperature   was   close  to
the freeaing point.
Electric Road  Between Night-
hawk and Brewster.
II.i.iihI Poffcl Sum.]
Spokane, April 23, Lol. A. M.
Dewey, president and general manager of the Okanagan Electric Railway company, has received advices
from Charles M. Meeker, a represent dive of English capitalists, that
a $3,000,000bond issue will be taken over oy lhe foreign investors.
The money will be used in the construction of a standard guage electric railroad between Nighthawk
.md Brewster, in Okanagan county,
Washington, and eventually will be
extended to Spokane from Brewster,
175  miles.     Mr.    Dewey   gave   out
this statement :
"The road will extend from Night-
hawk, in the northern part of Okan-
Bgan county, to Mrewster, in the extreme southern part of the county,
the head of navigation of the Columbia river. Construction work
will be started at the middle and at
both ends of the line before July 1,
if we can get the necessary labor,
and it is expected that passenger
and freight trains will be running in
eighteen months from the time work
is begun. The road, including,
equipment, will cost$30,000 a mile.
"We have already secured contracts for a larj^e part of the right
of way, and have I site for a power plant at Blue Lake, which will
develop 5600 horsepower. An auxiliary plant will be erected at the
conjunction of the two forks of Simon creek, near C'oncoiuilly. Trust, earn has a fall of 1200 feet in the
Peacock mountains. After the water is used to generate electrical
power, it will be turned back into
a reservoir lor irrigating purposes.
"The road, as planned now, will
start at Simi kameen river and run
on the west side of Palmer lake to
l.oomis. 11 will then go past the
(J. S. mine and smelter site, and
from the northeast side ot Fish lake
we will have a water grade to the
head of Johnson creek. From there-
it will pass directly through the centre of the United States irrigation
project and along the west   hank ot
the Okanagan river to Brewster."
The Okanagan country has vv ithin
its confines several of the largest
mines in Washington, the owners of
which are negotiating with the company lor the haulage of 60 cars of
ore a day. Tributary to the line
also is said to be six hundred million feet ol timber anil sixty thousand head ol cattle and one hundred
thousand sheep, in addition lo thousands of fruit trees.
A rocksllde in the deep rav ine near
Campbell i nek, near Phoenix, has
uncovered a 14-foot seam of bituminous coal. The discovery has caused a sensation. The slide dislodged huge chunks of coal, many of
them half a Ion in Weight, and precipitated them into the ravine.

J
T. O. Oliver, who recently re«
turned from tour years of prospecting on the Mackenzie, Peace and Le
Lard rivers, during which  time  he
crossed the Karren Land* lo the
lirst cache ot the Franklin expedition, brings news to Seattle ot gold
discoveries which he says surpass
the early finds in the Klondyke. He
will head I party that will leave
Seattle early next month on the return to these discoveries.
Further than to state that his discoveries were on tireat Slave lake,
Mr. Oliver declined lo go Oil into
details of the location of the now
gold fields. lie confirms the recent
reports received of the big gold
strike at lleischel Island and predicts a big rush into the Mackenzie
river country thia year. Mr. Oliver
said:
"The greatest gold diggings in
the world are in the Mackenzie river
country. The strike al lleischel
Island is one of the biggest discoveries of recent years, bul the richest fields will he found in the Barren Lands, near Great Slave Lake.
I have prospected lor gold since I
was |j vear- old and I 'rive heen in
all the host known mining camps
during that time, including two
years spent in the Klondyke, hut
the Mackenzie river country surpasses ,11 the places tli.it have ever
heen di . overed.
"lhe wonders of this wild region
will astound the world when it he-
comes known.. This vear there-
will he a big rush into this country,
hul it will he larger next vear and
the year following."
When asked regarding ihe values
of lhe gold finds which he made and
the location, Mr. Oliver declined to
gO int.- detail -.
"I do not care lo discuss locations and values at this time," he
said,    "hut    the   world   will hear of
gold  finds  in  th, Mackenzie river
countrv thai will go to eveiv section of the globe before anothei
year.
"Thocountii is evtienielv ditti-
CUll to prospect and I his. j,  ssj]   id,,i
haa prevented ihe  greal  gold  dis.
oveiies   before,      I  went    into   this
lountrv in 1907, hv wav of Peace
river, sinking that stream at Peace
met crossing. We went down the
Peace rlvei in boats about 7(H) miles
to Vermillion falls, and from there
on to Fort Smith, an old Hudson
It.iv trading post. The onl) difficult pait oi the river lo navigate
was sixteen miles before reaching
Fort Smith, which wc were forced
to portag< on account of the rapids.
From this point it is two hundred
miles   to   Great    Slave   lake On
Great Slave lake, thirty miles from
Peace liver, is Salt river. We pios-
pected np this nver thirty miles .md
found -n't beds where we were ah'c
to di out sufficient salt to cure a

Fain iew,  Vpril 28,
Mr.   Russell,   managing director
of the Stemwinder  mine,  who ha-.
been in the old country with a view
to  securing   ihe  capital   necessar}
lor the carrying on o\ lhe work
here, arrived in Montreal   last week
and is expected to arrive in Fair-
view any day, when suspense as
regards future proceedings at the
mine will soon he at an end.
There is considerable smoke in
the valley at present, cau ed hy employees of the Southern Okanagan
Land Company burning the rank
Vegetation in the coulees at the
north end of the lake. It begins to
look as if the improvements of the
company for the vear 1908 in this
district will end in "smoke."
News ot' the sudden death of
Christopher Martin, while engaged
ai staking at the Granby mine.,
Phoenix, was received here on Monday, lhe intelligence having heen
brought in by J. F. Royer of Keremeos,   who  also   drove    Mrs.   Allen
and   her   daughter,    Mr-.   Loonie,
mother and sister of the wile of the
deceased, to Oroville on their way

FRIDAY, MAN' I.  1908.
lhe well meant efforts of the
postal authorities to gel over the
difficulty and inconvenience arising
from having two Keremeos post
offices, succeed in obviating one
trouble only to create another.
Formerly the procedure was to have
the Stage mail assorted at the Centre
at noon and that belonging lo the
Station taken down just after noon.
Now that the new Carrying contract calls for a continuous trip
through to the Station, the mail is
assorted  there and that belonging
to the Centre taken back which
only shift the inconv enie.ice from
the new t.vvv.i to the old. The tact
is that the difficulty   will   never   he
overcome  xo long as two distinct
offices remain with names so similar. Per ons writing do not, and
never   will,   and   can  hardly he CX-
expected to remember ami di criminate between Keremeos Centre and
I'.eremeo . Station; nor is it particular y desirable that they should
ever learn to do so. Either name
has a back-country sound, and it
was an unfortunate move on the
pari ot the p.vstal authorities to fas-
ten such names on a locality destined at no distant date tO become
an important town aside from the
Obvious inconvenience ot such a
c tun , a ideonfu in,,' double nomenclature. In the meantime the onlv
alternative seems to be  for one  of
the sections lo adopt another name,
or, failing that, to put up with norne
inconvenience until the process of
growth  and  improvement   merges
lhem in one.
Again the negotiations with the
Ashnola Indians for a rii^bt ol Wav
across the Reserve for the Keremeos I a ul Co.'s irrigation ditch
have fallen through, ami a further
annoying dels) is incurred.    Mort
than     once      the      conipanv       have
thought  thev  had neCUred   lhe   con-
I ol tIn   red men,  hit   each   lime
lhe latter,  hi ailed hy  .\s|i:iola John,
have returned to theii original attitude ol ol" tinale refusal. Last
week    Indian    A^enl     livvin,   under
instructions from Ottawa, made an
effort to bring them to reason, lint
was obliged to leave without accomplishing his purpo e;   and   now
the matter stands just where it began.    The Land Company will make
another effort tO deal direct v with
the Indian^. If lhat should not
lUCCeed, the only course would appear lo be an appeal lo tbe   federal
Government for a direct exercise ot
its authority.
The states of Indians   in H. C. is
a peculiar one one lhat has caused
and is causing trouble, and will
continue to do so until il is material!}   altered.     1'nder   lhe   terms   of
union  with Canada,  the  Province
undertook to set aside lands for the
Indians, who, however, were to he-
come wards of the Dominion. There
is no clear indication in ihe articles
of union, nor, so far as we know,
in any subsequent agreement, as to
how those lands are to be alter-
wards dealt with, or as lo whether
federal control of the Indians was
to carry with it any control over
the lands. Naturally the two Governments now in power hold divergent v iews on this point, especially
as thev are politically opposed.
Ottawa, it is understood, would
sanction a sale of the lands provided the proceeds were turned over
to the federal treasury to be held
in trust for the benefit of the Indians. The I'rovince, of course, objects to such a disposal of provincial
assets ; and no settlement is likely
lo be reached  so  long   as   the   Iwo
Governments are of opposing parties. A settlement there must he,
though, before very many years,
lhe breaking up of the Similkameen bv larj^e blocks ot wilderness,
aggregating thousands ol acres in
extent, untaxed, without roads, and
a bar lo settlement, cannot be tolerated forever.
farmers, freighters and stai_c
men should keep in mind the new
Wide Tire Act, which is to come
into force in this part of the Province on Jan. It, 1909. Although
they have several monlhs in which
lo prepare for the change, the tendency will be to leave it till near
the end of the vear and overwhelm
ihe shops  wilh   work   all   at   once.
Give the wheelwrights a chance to
gel the bulk of it done during the
summer months, when they are not
rushed with other work, and when
they will have time and inclination
to do it better and more carefully
than when they arc hurried. The
main provisioi S of lhe new Act are:
"It shall be Unlawful for any WagtNl
or vehicle carrying ii load of mora
than two thousand pounds lo he
drawn oi driven on any public highway unless th- tiies ol such Wagon
or vehicle shall be ;it least four
inches in width." " It shall be unlaw lul lor any person or persons lo
drag logs oi limber over or along
any public hi^hvv av. "
"Bruce," ihe able leading writer
ol Saturday Sunset, nives a detailed  account  ol what  he declares to
be the line hi .ton    ol   the   Struggle
for the V. V. \- K. charter, or what
he calls   "Ihestoiv   ol   the   betrayal
by Templeman, Koss and Macpher-

the It. C. members turned around
and opposed it, so lhat it was lost ;
that they then fought for a charter
tor Hill (who proposed to build
without a subsidy but did not bind
himself to build to   the   coast),   and
presumably got a quid pro quo for
their services ; and lhat by their
action they practically annexed the
Similkameen to the State of Washington. The railway, he declares,
will never be built through to the
coast, I Mil's policy in all his building to Canada being solely to feed
his main line. "No douht Hill will
build to the headquarters of the
Coldwater and down to the Nicola
coal mines. The tonnage of these
mines to the Boundary smelters and
to the Pugct Sound coast will be
enormous. The trade oi lhe country through which il passes on its
way to lhe Boundary, past Aspen
drove, past Granite, past Hear
Creek, through Princeton, on lo
Hedley, the magnificent orchards of
Keremeos all these will pay tribute
to a United States railway and help
to   enrich   Spokane    and    Seattle."
This is interesting.     On ihe other

assurance that " before very long

Why Cucumbers for Picklca Are
Hard To Grow.
A writer in Saturday Sunset says :
In tlie Keremeoa, a newer district
than the Okanagan, development is
going rapidly ahead. Tbe Armstrong ditch, involving an outlay   of
$100,000, will serve hundreds of
acres of magnificent fruit  benches.
This llistrict is bound to occupy a
premier   place   in   tbe   horticultural
industry of the province. Ibe products ot" vine and tree are marvellous. Pumpkins weighing 150 lbs.,
melons ol enormous proportions,
tomatoes, eight of wliich laid side
bv side cover a yard slick, cucumbers and all Other sorts of small
fruits, besides subtropical fruits such
as prune--, peaches, olives, etc.,
thrive with wonderful success.
In a recent conversation with a
ranchei in that district lhe suggestion was made that the conversion
of the succulent cucumber into pickles should be a lucrative business in
thai valley, lie seriously interposed
this objection. "I'm not sure about
lhat. The tact is the cucumbers
are too small at night and too big
in Ihe morning for tbe best kinds of
pickles." Perhaps by a system of
shading  the blossoms a systematic
rancher could lime the fructifying
of  the blossom   so   that   the   exact
growth required for a jar of sweet
gerkins coil 1 be secured. In any
event, his difficulty will not be regarded as one likely to seriously
tell against the future of the pickle
industry of Keremeos, nor yet ol
its splendid future as a fruit anil
vegetable district.

KEREMEOS, B. C. SIMILKAMEEN WINE.
Viticulture in the Valley a Promising Enterprise.
Fore*sighted fruit-growers In the
• Similkameen,   manv   of whom  arc
just now laving out their   plots, are
taking   care   not to plant too   large
an area in the more perishable fruits.
lender and i|iiick-jrroviini,r varieties
such as strawberries and peaches
are highly profitable where there is
a large and reliable market, but
growers in this district should rather choose as staples such kinds as
will bear comparatively long shipment and long keeping. Apples, of
course, is the chief of these. Then-
arc, however, many others lhat are
9*1 sale ami profitable and it is not
wise to pat all your eggs in one
basket.
One line lhe success of which is
entirely independent of prompt shipments and temporary market conditions is the growing of grapes for
wine. 11 is a highly profitable and
steady business, and one not likely
to be overdone. Suitable areas for
it, loo, are strictly limited : for a
country thai may grow table grapes
lo perfection is not always adapted
to wine grapes as, for instance,
lhe Niagara districl and Delaware.
These districts, though they produce   the   fruit   in   such    enormous
quantities that  they overload the
markets near'v every year, nevertheless produce scarcely any wine,
bul import from Europe or California.
Though this subject has   received
litt'e attention compared with other
branches of fruit growing, all the
ev idence yet to hand groes to show
thai    the    hail    belt    ot   B.   C.     the
Kootenav, Okanagan and Similkameen are particularly well adapted for viticulture. The experiments
conducted on the Richter ranch,
while not carried out on a commercial scale, have shown conclasiv elv
that the choicest of wine can be produced here, and the yield from the
Tokay, Black Hamburg and other
grapes is prono meed hi connois-
•euis to be equal io the highest
grades ot  European wines.
Iwo veais ago a lieitnan   viticul-
lurist    began   growing    grapes    on
some rock-covered land on Crowfoi
bay, Kootenai lake, just bevoud the
terminus ot the tireat Northern direct line from lhe stales. Mis success lias been Mich lhat grape cul-
I nc has been taken up   hi    another
German, wii,< is settling a colon} at
Proctor,   vvheie   i<ki Germans  will
-.tail growing grapes on a commercial scale, wi111 ihe idea of making
the Kootenai vv inc. The land has
been bought and is being cleared.
A vv titer in the Saturday Sunset
says on this subject I
The vanting of wine will soon be
another industry in Ihis province.
At Keremeos and other parts of the
Interior excellent grapes can be
grown, and an Italian who has been
Cultivating theni for the past two
yean    upon    his     Kootenay    ranch
makes lhe simliug statement that
afler ihis ycai ihe culture of grapes
will net him $3,000 an acre. 1 see
no   reason,   although    I   am   not   a
wine expert, why this glorious  and
highly favored province should not
produce an excellent wine,    In Italy
vv ine is sold for from one cent a
glass upwards and champagne costs
10 cents a bottle. Here in the
Holden West the lizzie costs about
ten times that much and only millionaires and bank clerks can afford
to pop the corks. I am aware that
vv ine is a mocker, but drank in moderation it cannot hurt very much,
probably not as much as hard water which the people in the mountains have to drink. The vineyard
may yet become popular amid the
sun-kissed mountains of the greatest gem in the cluster of Canada's
provinces.
