Social Evening.
The ladies of the GtliM scored a
decided success in their supper and
social evening given in the town
hall last Friday. The eatables were
excellent, while the dance which
followed vv as one of the most enjoyable social events ever brought off
in Keremeos. The admission fee
of 50 cents which was charged was
altogether too small for such a
splendid supper and entertainment.
The program part suffered by
reason of Miss I.owndes' unavoidable absence, but a solo by Mrs.
Hrown with encore and a comic
song by George Kirby were well re-
ceivtd. The proceeds amounted
to about $50, and we understand
will be made the nucleus of a fund
which the ladies aie starting for use
in deserving cases.
Who May Vote.
As the date of elections approaches we frequently hear the question
asked "Have I a vote?" It is a
question which every man can easily
answer for himself. In Hriiish Columbia, as in some of the other
provinces ofthe Dominion, the provincial voters' lists are used for federal elections, and only those whose
names are on these lists are entitled
to vote. As personal application is
necessary to gel 00 the lists everv
man will know tor himself whether
his name is there or not.     No name . quick    sale    at   a   very    reasonable
Fruit Without Irrigation.   V   /
This week R. C. Armstrong left
on our desk some apples of very
excellent quality and size, grown on
his ranch in the lower valley. Owing to impaired health on his own
part and a nervous breakdown on
the part of his wife, Mr. Armstrong
has been unable to stay with the
ranch this season and look after it.
He is offering the property, which
contains lf>0 acres of excellent bench
and bottom land, with comfortable
buildings and a small   orchard,   for
can be placed there without the man
knowing it.
For the information of those of
our readers, who, having been in
the   province   but   a   comparatively
figure. The apples which Mr. Armstrong left with us were grown without any irrigation or attention whatever. They indicate to some extent   what   might   be  done  on the

J. J. Armstrong made a trip to
Molaon on Monday returning Wednesday, Difficulty in securing supplies   of  lumher   for   construction
work on the ditch and bridge necessitated the trip.
A bunch of about 20 horses belonging to a V. S. survey party,
who have been at work on the International Houndary line at Sumas
Prairie, were taken down the valley on their way across the line on
Wednesday. Work on the survey
h;ts been suspended for the season.
On Tuesday afternoon as our
local butcher, George Cawston, assisted by Charlie Richter, was
rounding up some cattle on Daly's
Island just across from the slaughter
house, they put up a fine b'.ick-
tailed buck, which Charlie herded
while George rode to Dune. Campbell's for a rifle. Next day there
was venison on the market. That's
g-etting 'em easy.
R. C. Morgan, Supt. of the S. F.
& N., and J. M. Doyle, Asst. Supt.
of Spokane, accompanied the train
which brought Karl Grey and his
party in here on Tuesday. They
returned to Oroville by special in
the evening, Mr. Morgan having
spent the day in a hunting and fishing jaunt up the Ashnola, and Mr.
Doyle in visiting F. Riehter's orchards and other places of interest
From a notice in the B.C. Gazette
it would appear that the V V. & K.
are contemplating abandoning their
entrance to Ilurrard Inlet over the
old short line of the V.W. & Y.
and seeking another entrance. It
is ot little interest, however, to the
people of the Jimhillkanieen valley
■OW they get there so long as they
get there. The company is also
having some difficulty with the
Municipality of Delta over right-of
"way on the old Ladner highway.
The "Cornwall" and "York," the
two handsome, special cars in which
the Governor-General and his party
travel, are the ones that were fitted
up for the Duke and Duchess ol
York on the occasion of their tour
of Canada in 1902. As we have
been contemplating getting something of this sort for our own use
we were naturally interested in
these, and no serious objection  be
ing raised, we had a good look
through them as they rested on the
siding here. We decided that with
a few minor changes they could be
made to answer our purpose fairly
well, and will likely place our order
when Uncle Jim sends word that he
is ready to begin track-laying.
In passing the school house on
his amy out of town on Tuesday
His Excellency, the Governor-General, considerately dismounted and
entered the building. After a few
remarks directed to the teacher and
pupils he instructed the former to
give the children a holiday next day.
That His Excellency made a lasting
impression upon the children cannot
be questioned, but it is equally
certain that they failed to grasp the
full significance of the occasion as
one of the pupils, in relating how it
happened, said : "That feller, the
one they called the Earl, whoever
he is, said we were to have a holiday, and we are going picnicing."

FRIDAY, Ol'TOHKR 2,  190S.
Disfranchised Electors.
When potling day for the pending
federal elections arrives many men
in Itritish Columbia who, possibly,
have never been outside ot the
Dominion of Canada in their lives, !
will find themselves disfranchised.
We refer, particularly, to those who
hav e moved into the province from
some other part of the Dominion
within the last year. Take, for
instance, the case of a person who
came from Manitoba to this province during the present year or the
latter part of last year. His name
is struck off lhe Manitoba lists and
the earliest possible opportunity he
has for getting on the lists here will
be at the revision on November 2nd,
too late to exercise his franchise at
this election.
That this is a clear injustice goat
without saying. Any citizen, not
otherwise disqualified, who has resided continuously within the Dominion should be entitled to t vote
somewhere in tbe Dominion, just as
a person, who has resided continuously in the province is entitled to
VOte in one or other of the electoral
divisions of that province.
The mix-up is the result of using
provincial lists for federal purposes
under Existing conditions. The
remedy lies in improving the exi't-
ing conditions rather than discarding the carefully compiled provincial
lists for ones hastily and imperfectly
prepared by partisan officials on the
eve of an election.
To any one who will take a moment off and read the B.C. Election
Act as it relates to the preparation
of voters' lists the objections raised
by certain liberal members in the
house last session, will be found to
be utterly without foundation. In
the preparation of these lists there
is not the slightest shade of advantage to either party. The fullest
and. freest opportunity is afforded
even man entitled to vote to place
his name upon the lists, and the
same applies to purging the lists of
all names not entitled to be on. If
a man entitled to vote is disfranchised it is entirely his own fault; it*
tlead men's names are allowed lo
accumulate on the lists it is inexcusable negligence on the part of
those whose duty it is to see that they
are removed and not any fault in
the provisions of the Act — Duncan
Ross to the contrary.
What is true in regard to the H.
('. lists applies with equal force to
those of Manitoba which are similarly compiled, and every resident
of these two provinces should heartily commend the  determined   stand
which the opposition in the house
:il Ottawa last session took to prevent the provincial lists beinf* overridden by that objectionable clause
in the Aylesworth Bill.
How then can provincial lists be
made suitable for federal elections ?
The answer appears simple. By
having the date of all elections
a fixture, as in all reason they
should be. This would materially simplify the work of preparing
the lists as the time of revision
could be made to conform with the
date of the election. Provision
should alao be made, for purposes
of federal elections when necessary,
for the transfer of names of electors from the lists of one province
to thdse ot another in the same
m;inner as for provincial elections a
name may be transferred from one
electoral division to another.
A remedy is surely needed, but
by all means let it be in the right
direction and in the right way.

G. MILBURN. An Outsider's View.
VV. I). Lyman, Protestor of
Whitman College, Walla Walla,
who has been supplying the Spokesman-Review with travel sketches
lately, has concluded with a postscript dealing with conditions as he
found them on this side ol the line.
Referring to Hritish Columbia he
says :      "It   is   by   tar   the   richest
province in latent resources.    It is
the province of the future. As our
own state of Washington is plainly,
destined to be one of the greatest
states of the union by reason of vast
natural resources and a world-key
position, so Hritish Columbia is
sure lo attain a similar   importance
in Canada."
In the field of politics his impressions are a trifle more at fault. He
describes the liberal party as the
French element and the conservative party as comprising practically
all of the English element. Sutn-
tning up the present situation he
makes the amusing icinark that
"Hriiish Columbia and Ontario are
the only provinces out of the seven
of the Dominion which are conservative, lhe English influence
predominates    in    these   provinces,
whereas the French is strong in the
