Jas. Elmhirst's big field of potatoes is a source of wonderment to
the diggers. They began turning
out 3, 4 and 5 lb. tubers, and put
them aside as curiosities, but soon
found that the whole field runs to
those sizes. There is nothing
freakish about the crop—it is all
sound and high grade.
The new building heing erected
by D. J. Innis, next the weigh scales, as a harness shop for F. Prosser,
has assumed shape. It will be a
story-and-a-half structure, with
square front, in the prevailing style
of border architecture, and with a
large shop window. Ed Lee and
Earl Howse are the builders.
Wm. P. Reams of Vernon, representing the Vernon News, is
making the rounds of the Similkameen in the interest of that paper.
The News is one of the oldest papers of the interior, and in the early
days was the only one in a vast district; and though the territory in
which it once held exclusive sway
now contains numerous publications,
the old reliable still enjoys a large
circulation beyond its immediate
local field.
F. Sauve is putting up a business block on the lot west of the
Chronicle office, to occupy the full
width of thc lot. The building will
be 30 x 30 ft., of one storey, with a
high front, and will he divided into
two shops or offices, one 12 ft. and
the other 14 It. in width, with a
4 ft. passage between. Each part
will have a handsome plate-glass
front. One part will be used for
his own purposes, and the other
will be to let. J. Knudson and E.
Mills are the builders.
A dance vvill be held this evening
in the town hall under the auspices
of the baseball club. The club are
taking pains to have everything
connected with the affair of the
best to be obtained, and they are
anxious that it should be a success,
both for its own sake and because
they wish to make up the wherewithal to meet their obligations for
the season. Good music and supper will be provided. Tickets $1.50.
The patronesses are Mrs. Kirby,
Mrs. Lowe, Mrs. Armstrong and
Mrs.  Coleman.
Premier Announces His Railway
Policy—Subsidy for Midway-
Nicola Line via Similkameen
—C. N. R. Agreement.
Victoria, Oct. 19—The British
Columbia legislature dissolves tomorrow.
Nominations take place Nov. 11
and elections Nov. 25.
The announcement follows an
agreement signed between the government and the Canadian Northern
railway, whereby the latter engage
to construct 600 miles of railway
from the Yellowhead pass to Vancouver within four years from date.
The government on their part guarantee the bonds at 4 per cent, and
as security take a first mortgage on
the road in this province. The
plans of the Canadian Northern as
specified in the agreement also include the construction ot a railroad
across Vancouver Island to Barclay
Sound, where the company intends
to establish an ocean port.
D. D. Mann, vice-president of the
Canadian Northern, met the executive of the Government today and
the above satisfactory agreement
vvas reached. The company will
build southward) from the Yellowhead Pass to a point near New
Westminster,     thence    connecting
vvith   Vancouver.       It   will   pass
with the C.N.R. for the construction^
of a road from the Yellowhead Pass
to Kamloops by way of the North
Thompson river, from Kamloops to
New Westminister and Vancouver
and from a point near Vancouver to
English Bluff to make first class
connection with Victoria, both for
passengers and freight and to build
a railway from Victoria to Barclay-
Sound. The distance in all will be
600 miles. To assist the company
in the construction of the road,
which will cost about $50,000 per
mile, the government will ask the
legislature to guarantee interest at
4 per cent, upon $35,000 per mile.
For security the government will
hold a first mortgage on the lines of
the railway in British Columbia and
will have a covenant with the company indemnifying the province
against any loss. By the time this
railway is finished the C.N.R. will
have at least 5000 miles of line
through a highly productive country. The company has already been
guaranteed from other provincial
governments interest on its bonds
and has never defaulted in its interest and the provinces have never
been called upon to pay a single
dollar. No Asiatics will be employed on the construction and the
standard wages will be paid. Work
is to begin within three months after
the lieutenant governor gives his
assent to the bill and the whole
line must be finished within four

Rats, which made their appearance in the grain fields and granaries of Manitoba last spring, are
proving such a menace that the
Manitoba government is taking active measures to rid the province  of
the rodents. A virus said to be
fatal to rats is produced by the
chemists at the American college at
Winnipeg. The virus produces a
fatal fever in the rats, much resembling typhoid.
Winnipeg is now connected with
Lake Superior by three lines of railway, the last spike having been
driven on that section of the Transcontinental. It is now possible for
a train to run clear through from
Winnipeg to Fort William by this
new line far north of the C.P.R.

the Granby ore produces 22 pounds
of copper and $1 in gold or silver to
the ton.

J. R. SHAW. Gun-a-Noot Safe  in   Northern
Gun-a-noot, the Skeena River
murderer, against whom two unsuccessful expeditions have been
sent by the provincial government,
is now making his headquarters in
excellent hunting ground between
the head of Pelly Creek and the
south fork at the Ingenika River,
according to a report brought to
Vancouver by a prospector who has
just returned from the district,
where he spent the entire summer.
This man declares that the whereabouts of the murderer is not by
any means unknown in the north
country, but the few white men who
are scattered about have no desire
to molest the man owing to the temper of the Indians generally who,
since the government has been unable to arrest Gun-a-noot, have become decidedly belligerent.
Gun-a-noot was at Fort Graham
last winter, spending several weeks
there without molestation. The
man has surrounded himself with a
number of relatives, including women and children. The men of the
party are declared to be well armed
and to take the murderer would
mean a fight through which it is
said to be scarcely likely the members of any attacking force could
pass without loss of life.
It is known in the north that the
Indian has succeeded in establishing
a very effective line of communication vvith Hazelton, distant about
250 miles, and he is thus able to receive at stated periods, supplies of
staples which he could otherwise
procure only by applying at some of
the Hudson Bay posts. Gun-a-
noot and his band spend their time
hunting, trapping and washing gold;
with the proceeds ofthe chase and
the placer diggings they pay for the
few necessaries which are packed
from Hazelton to them by Indian
friends. One of the Indians with
the murderer is a man who spent a
number of years working placer in
the vicinity of Manson Creek and
he is supposed to be the man who
is washing the gold which is several times a year sent out from the
murderer's headquarters.

John Oliver, the new provincial
Liberal leader, has lost no time
since his accession in going before
the people and stating his policies.
In a speech at Vancouver, in the
course of a general arraignment of
the McBride administration, he
makes one pronouncement on constructive lines, and states with
some dehniteness his conception of
the proper method to be adopted in
order to secure better railway facilities throughout the province.
His railway policy may be stated in
one word, "Bonus." He points
out that Dominion bonuses of $6,-
400 a mile are available for something like 1000 miles of road; that
the Dominion bonus appears to be
insufficient to induce the building of
the roads; and he proposes that the
province give an additional bonus
of $3200 a mile, or $5000 if necessary, in order to get the roads
built. Of the road now building
through the Similkameen he has
this to say:
"But, great as these projects are, I do
not consider them the most important wc
have to consider, I consider the most important railway lhat can possiblv he undertaken in B. C is thai which will conned the city of V,incomer with N'icola on
the C.P.R., al one end and Princeton on
lhe other." There was a great deal ol
uncertainty as to when tlie connection
would be made. They knew that J. J.
Hill had stated that he would build the
road without a subsidy. He starts in llie
heart of the Crow's Nest valley watercourses, zigzags across the boundary line,
the Similkameen river, and is now at Hedley and the road graded to Princeton. J.
J. Hill had dodged every heavy  grade   in
B. C, and that made him (the speaker)
feel very doubtful about the heavy grades
of Hope Mountain pass. The position
was very difficult there or roads would
have been built long since. He did not
believe that J.J. Hill himself knew if he
would build the road there or not. "If J.
J. Hill could satisfy the government of   B.
C. that he would be able to go through in
reasonable time without subsidy, well and
good. If he could not satisfy them, let
them be prepared to give some companv
a subsidy that would be able to do it.
And if there was no company prepared to
take hold of it and build II on a reasonable
subsidy, the position was just the same as
it was in regard to lhe Kraser river bridge
transportation oucstion. And Vancouver
owed much of ils prosperity lo llu- bridge
al Westminster, three lines of railway running across it. That piece of road was
essential lo the welfare ofthe Province ot
B. C. more than any olher piece of road,
and he believed if the Liberal party adopted Ihe policy of co-operation with the Dominion government at Ottawa in securing
the railway construction outlined, thev
could secure assistance for making the
necessary connection. It thty could not
overcome the natural obstacle by a reasonable subsidy to a railway company the
best way was to take hold of it as at the
Kraser bridge.
In effect, Mr. Oliver says to Jim
Hill: "You seem to be reluctant
about finishing your line. If you
keep on being reluctant till I get into power, I will finish it for you at
the public expense." It is not without reason that it has been said of
Mr. Oliver that he talks too much.
But as to his general policy   of  im
plementing Dominion bonuses with
provincial money, there can be no
doubt that it will meet with a great
deal of support from the districts
that are hungry for railways and
are more anxious to see the steel
than to count the cost. Mr. McBride has also stated that he has
important railway projects to submit for the people's approval at the
coming elections. It will be interesting to see what form  they   take.
Sir Charles Rivers-Wilson, president of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
declares that he is unable to appreciate the position of the people of
British Columbia in regard to the
employment of Oriental labor on the
G.T.P. The road is urgently needed, and the temporary employment
of a few thousand Asiatics would
save two or three years, while their
introduction, he contends, would
not displace a single native Canadian, lf he would retonsider that
latter statement, he might perhaps
be better able to appreciate the Canadian position. To say that there
is a lack of white labor is simply
untrue. Given fair pay and fair
conditions, any employer in Canada
can get any number of men he
needs. The Canadian Northern
people, who are working next door
to the G.T.P., have no such difficulty as the Grand Trunk people
profess to have. Says D. D. Mann,
vice-president of the Canadian Northern, "In all of my thirty-two
years experience I have never yet
employed an Oriental to work for
me." Speaking of the mileage of
which it is expected to complete the
grading this year, Mr. Mann says:
"We shall have about four hundred
miles in the three provinces graded
by the end of the year. The trouble
lately has been that the men have
nearly all gone harvesting, but most
of tlicm will be back lo work in a
short time." The fact is that the
G.T.P. contractors are anxious for
bigger profits than will come to
them if they carry out their work
under the conditions first agreed to,
hence their attempt to show that
they cannot get enough workmen
without going to Asia for them.
But the people of Canada know better. The people of Canada are paying the piper, and they propose to
call the tune. If Sir Charles Rivers-
Wilson would do a signal public service and at the same time make a
great name for himself, he should
turn his efTorts to drawing on the
work-hungry myriads of Britain for
his toad-building force instead of
clamoring for coolies.

the current issue of Saturday Sunset
to the railway situation in the
Similkameen, and once again portal \ s graphically the difficulties of
communication between the Coast
and the Interior, and the consequent
drawbacks to the prosperity of both
sections. His solution of the problem is that   the   provincial  govern
ment should construct the vital link,
the proposed Kennedy tunnel, for
the joint use of the three transcontinental lines, the G.N.R., the C.P.
R. and the G.T.P. He suggests
that if the G.N.R. now builds on
the long horseshoe curve to the
north, that part of the line need not
be abandoned when the tunnel is
bored- -that the east side will be
required in any event, and that the
west side could be connected with
the coal mines at Nicola and the
coal be slid down the 2*4 per cent,
grade to Vancouver. One advantage claimed for government construction and ownership ot the tunnel is that it would give a measure
of control over the roads. The
proposition may be the best final
arrangement, ll should carry as a
corollary the condition that both
the lines now building from the
Yellowhead to the Coast must take
their routes through the valleys of
the Interior and not through the
Kraser canyon. And in the meantime it should not be allowed as a
fresh excuse of the Great Northern

The Best Time to Secure a Lot is NOW
Before our great irrigation system was completed and before the railway was completed, many
settlers located on our fruit lands in the assurance that these necessary works were soon to be
carried out.
Now the works have been carried out, the water
courses have been laid, the railway runs through the
centre of the settlement, and the remainder of our
lands are still open on the same terms. The very
best time for the fruit grower to settle at Keremeos
is right now.
DON'T DELAY—The time is short during
which you can get in on the ground flour and secure
a tract of virgin land in the heart of one of the very
choicest fruit-growing districts of the province.
Before another year passes it is altogether likely
that every foot of it will be taken up.

and are ready for planting. No mountain side, but

Investment Opportunities Sometimes Overlooked.
In this western country speculation often Wadl otherwise thoughtful and careful business people to the investment possibilities of enterprises thai are essential
to thf life of the country. There is much
food for reflection in the thought thai lhe
people of British Columbia use one million
dollars worth of soap annually. As investors, we may not be interested in soap particularly, bul we are interested in getting
profitable returns on Ihe investment, and
soap is one of those everyday necessities
whose possibilities are very easily overlooked. The fact that a million dollars
worth is used in British Columbia alone,
is enough to make one pause and investigate.
Less than a year ago the Western Soap
Co. Ltd., began the manufacture of Lighthouse Soap in Vancouver. Within thai
lime the demand for the product has la-
creased so that it is now equal to about
three times lhe present capacity of their
factorv. This increase has made necessary the building of a new faclorx. in.I
for this purpose Ihe Western Soap Co.
Ltd., has heen incorporated with a capital of $250,000.00, which is divided into
250,000 shares al $1.00 each. 100,000 of
Ihen' are now being taken by the public
at par.
The Western Soap Co. Ltd., is in a unique position. The process of manufacture which they use is owned by them exclusively, and it enables them to manufacture al a lower cost than any competitors. This is a secret process, bul they
can sufficiently explain it to anyone who
is interested enough to inquire, to show
just where they stand. This process
alone makes the future of the company
unusually bright when once operating in
their new factory, and in a measure keeping    pace   with   the   demand.     They   can
also establish other factories contiguous
to other markets, having the advantage
ot competitors by their cheaper process,
or they can sell llu- right to use this process to competitors. In either case, thc
stockholders are bound to make several
hundred per cent on Iheir invest mem
when Ihis is done.
Apart from this, however, the present
demand for Lighthouse Soap alone, at a
most conservative estimate, will enable
the company to pay 20 dividend on the
stock. Apart from their process, the
stock must grow very rapidly in value because lhe country is growing rapidly and
the demand for soap is steadily increasing,
and with a cheaper process, the company
will capture the lion's share of the trade
which is now held by older companies.
The proposition is one of a staple industry—the manufacture of a product which
everybody has to um all lhe time, aiul
j which at Ihe same lime affords unusual
opportunities for profit, through ils exclusive ownership of a special process,
jusl as lhe telephone companv stockholders ivaliied unusual profits because the
company had a monopoly of thai method
of communication.
It is easy to become a sioekholdcr in
the Western Soap Co. Ltd., whether yon
haw much money or lilll.- lo invest. Not
less than fifty shares ne issued lo anv one

"I understand that you called on
the plaintiff, Mr. Barnes. Is that
so?" questioned Lawyer Fuller, now
Chief Justice.
"Yes," answered the witness.
"What did he say?" next demanded Fuller.
The attorney for the defence jumped to his feet and objected that the
conversation could not be admitted
in the evidence. A half-hour's argument followed and the judges retired to their private room to consider the point.
An hour later the judges filed into
the court-room and announced that
Mr. Fuller might put  his   question.
"Well, what did the plaintiff say,
Mr.  Mames?"
"He weren't at home, sir," came
the answer without a tremor.

TORONTO       -       -        -       -       ONI Stealings at the A. Y. P.
Local and General.
The Seattle fair, having lost hundreds if not thousands of dollars
through the peculations ofgatemen,
who stole piece by piece the 25-cent
and 50-eent coins which visitors
handed them to drop into the turnstile slots, the brown-uniformed
money-takers were fired in a body
md replaced by the gray-uniformed
men at the Alaska-Yukon-l'acific
The trick which diverted the
stream of silver coins from the turnstile boxes into the pockets of the
gatemen was so simple that, although they arc loath to acknowledge it, the exposition officials are
satisfied that it has been carried on
ever since the fair opened, although
it only reached bij; proportions within the past few weeks, or since the
retrenchment policy ofthe executive
committee forced the removal of a
number of inspectors from the gates.
The dishonest gateman, io carrying out his scheme, received the
quarter or half-dollar from the visitor to the fair, turned the gate far
enough for the person to pass
through into the grounds, and then
turned the gate back to ils normal
position before it had clicked as an
indication that a tare had been registered.
It was so easily done that only
the stoutest person failed to pay
toll to these thieves when the latter
elected, for the gate had to be turned beyond the registering point in
order to let them pass. And, the
coin, once held out, found its way
to the pocket of the thieving gate-
man after he had palmed it long
enough tO escape detection.
So clever had the dishonest gate-
men become that thev arc known tO
ha\e carried on their operations
most successfully, and the scheme
pi money getting was discovered
only by the mcicst accident. Two
detci ti\cs irom a neighboring city
observed the trick and reported it to
CM*. Wappcnstein, ofthe A.-Y.-P.
Guards, whom they had come to
the tail to visit.
Harris Explains Letter.
OtttWOsOct IS.     Mr.  Harris, Canadian trade commissioner in Japan,
Connor!) ofVoroon, H. (.'.,  who ii
was allayed MM time ago, had
written to a Toronto merchant warning him not to ship goods direct to
Japanese merchants because they
cannot be trusted, has sent to the
department an explanatory cable.
He says that an entirely wrong
inlcrcnce has been drawn from his
letter, that his caution applied to
one individual firm only, and not to
Japanese business men as a class.
This is what has been suspected at
the department all along, and officials are still at a loss to know why
the Toronto business man to whom
the letter was confidentially addressed, should have given out a private
communication which was liable to
be misunderstood.

GEO. CAWSTON. Hard on Mormons
Mormons in Utah gfot a severe
jolt when the announcement was
made by Dr. Cook and Commander
Peary that the north pole country
had been discovered and found to be
nothing more than a bleak desert
of ice.
Since the beginning- of Mor-
monism the followers have clung to
the theory of the land about the
pole being occupied by the descendants of the ten tribes of Israel who
left Palestine a few centuries before
Christ and travelled in a northerly
direction for a year and a half.
Through a series of remarkable
discoveries and revelations the Mormons claimed to have located the
descendants of the ten tribes at the
north pole, which must surely have
been their stopping place if they
travelled north from Palestine for a
year and a half.
To confirm the theory that the
descendants, probably many millions
in number, were in the north pole
country, the books of Isaiah and
Jeremiah were referred to by the
Mormon elders and missionaries.
In these books many references are
made to the Lord's people of the
north and how they would be
"brought down from the north."
Josephus, the Jewish historian, is
sponsor for the statement that the
ten tribes went north a year and a
half. Through revelations and inspirations the Mormons drafted the
story of the descendants being- co-
favorites of the Lord with the Mormons.
The ten tribes were the chosen
people of the Lord in the early days,
while the Mormons claim to be the
chosen people of the latter days, and
for that reason they call themselves
Latter Day Saints.
A sense of protection always has
been felt by the Mormons in the
teaching that in the day when they
were in the sorest need of help from
the opponents of their religion the
north pole tribes would march down
to Utah and combine forces with
the Mormons.
Led by the Lord, the two armies
of saints would be a world power,
and all other relig-ions would fall before the progress of "the army of
the Lord."
How New Zealand became a British possession is one of the romances of colonization. Seventy years
ago il was a sort of no man's land,
but it leaked out that France contemplated annexation. There was
a race from Sydney between a British and a French man-of-war, the
former winning by a few hours and
securing New Zealand for the British crown. A few years previously
a French adventurer, Baron de
Thierry, at the head of 100 followers,
whom he had recruited in Sydney,
had proclaimed himself "King of
New Zealand," but the baron had
not sufficient funds to maintain a
monarchy. His subjects deserted,
and his reign collapsed.

The Question With You is Money,
" Where Shall I Invest to Make the Most Money ?"
Reflect upon this : The people of British
Columbia are paying out a million dollars
every year for soap.
The demand for Lighthouse Soap in
less than a year has outgrown the capacity of
our factory, and we are compelled to build a
new one.
For this purpose the Western Soap Co.
Ltd., has been incorporated with a capital of
$250,000.00, divided into 250,000 shares at
$1.00 each, of which 100,000 shares are now
being taken by the public at par.
Whether you have much money or
little, the opportunity is equally good. We
issue shares in lots of not less than 50 and not
more than J,000 shares to any one person, and
the terms of payment are, 25% on application,
25% on allotment, and the balance in calls of
not more than 25% at any one time.
Remember These Facts
1. Everyone uses and has lo use soap.
2. Every additional person   who comes  into  the
country increases the demand, the sales, the profits.
3. Every year the value of your company  stock
increases as the business grows.
4. Every year you gel a dividend—a cash return
upon the money invested.
5. Lighthouse Soap is made by a process which
no other company can use—a process which enables
the company to manufacture a superior soap ai a
lower cost than its competitors.
6. The demand for Lighthouse Soap is equivalent
to about three times the present capacity of our factory
to supply.
We Oan Show YOU. First, a most conservative annual return of 20% on your investment.
Second, where your interest in the exclusive manufacturing process of the Western Soap Co. will increase Ihe value of your stock several hundred per
cent, in a few years.
Do nol put in any money — simply ask to He shown
—then use your own judgment.

Armstrong's Tough Quarter.
The Armstrong Advertiser says:
The denizens of the Chinese gambling saloons had a glorious carousal one evening this week; they
wound up at 3 a. m. by discharging
firearms a number of times. This
sort of thing is allowed by a Council who make the white men shut
their bars at 10 p. m. on five days
in the week and at 7 p. m. on Saturdays; ring curfew bells, pass bicycle bylaws all for the expressed
purpose of improving the morals
of a community which was less in
need of anything of the sort than
any place in British Columbia.
"Thou shalt not" is the edict to the
white man; to the Chinaman it is
"Go ahead, raise all the Cain you
like, drink all the whisky you wish,
gamble as much as you like, overcrowd like packed herrings, you
are privileged." And to cap the
climax a white woman arrived on
the premises on Thursday.
