expert, or inspector, be authorized
to visit this section and examine
several farms eligible for the purpose of an experimental station.
Word received from L W. Shatford, M.P.P., states that he had

that everything looked favorable
for a successful outcome and permanent cure. While the long difficult surgical treatment to which   he

should prevent any recurrence of
the old malady will make up for it
all. His friends in the Similkameen
are all very much pleased to learn
ofthe favorable outcome and will
look forward to the pleasure of
meeting him in a few weeks more.

Sir Richard Cartwright, Minister
of Trade and Commerce and leader
of the Senate, is visiting his son in
Vancouver, Dr. C. Cartwright, after
taking the waters of Harrison Hot
Springs. In pre-C.P.R. days Sir
Richard was much abused for referring to British Columbia as a
"sea of mountains," a phrase of
which he is reputed to be the author.
British Columbians are not now inclined to resent it as a term of disparagement as they were then.
They are rather pleased with it.
FIRST AT THE TOP.
Rev.  Mr.  Kinney Reaches the
Summit of Highest Mountain in Canada.
Rev. Geo. B. Kinney, the newly
appointed Methodist minister for
Keremeos, has during his summer
holiday achieved one of the most
remarkable feats of exploration ever
attempted it* the Canadian Rockies.
For several years past Mr. Kinney
has devoted his summer outings to
mountain climbing, and two years
ago determined to attempt the
hitherto unconquerable MrMttrr 'Robson, the highest peak in Canada.
Mount Robson is situated in the
main range of the Rockies, near the
Yellowhead Pass, and is about 14,-
000 feet in height. His first and
second attempts, in 1907 and 1908,
were unsuccessful, but this time,
after much danger and hardship, he
succeeded.
Manitoba fruitmen have decided

their apple orders. J. McLean, ! The following despatch from Ed-

RECEPTION   AT   CALGARY.
The Calgary Herald thus announces the receipt of the news in Calgary:
Elation reigns in the souls of the
members of the Alpine club to-day.
One of the members, George B.
Kinney, of Victoria, has succeeded
in climbing Mount Robson, the
highest peak la the Canadian Rockies. This is the first time its summit has been reached, although a
number of attempts have been made,
and the Alpine club are naturally
jubilant that to one of their number
belongs the honor. The feat is
particularly creditable to Mr. Kinney, since he was unaccompanied
by a Swiss guide. Their assistance
is usual when any difficult work is
attempted.
Mr. Kinney has been gone about
three months since he began his effort, and some anxiety was beginning to be felt as to his safety.
That the attempt was not free from
danger was known, and that its
success was attended with real hardship is evident from the telegram
announcing its accomplishment.
This reads as follows:
Edmonton, Sept. 6.
"Don McTavish, Calgary:
"Captured Robson Aug. 13. Positive evidence. Nearly starved two
weeks. Geo. B. Kinney."
On receipt of the message a meeting of the Alpine club was called at
Mr. McTavish's office and arrangements made to tender Mr. Kinney
a reception in honor of his feat.
(The Mr. McTavish referred to is
one of the members of the B. C.
Fruit Land Co. of Keremeos.)

J. Laundry, a lumberjack, was
robbed of $200 at Revelstoke. He
was on the river bank when two
men engaged him in conversation on
horse racing and getting him excited he produced his "wad" to back
his opinion when one of the men
seized it, and ran off with it. The
police were advised of the matter
and promptly arrested one of the
men who had part of the money on
him.

effect that they believe the fire was
of incendiary origin, and censuring
the chief of police, night watchman,

While August was as usual a dry
month in the Similkameen, scarcely a drop of rain falling at Keremeos, across the mountains they
were having the rainiest August on
record. At Swanson Bay it rained
on 21 days out of the 31, while at
Clayoquot, on Vancouver Island, it
rained for 17 days out of the 31,
and on two days the record showed 4.5 inches and 5.6 inches respectively. This latter figure it is believed is the heaviest ever recorded
in British Columbia.
The dredge operating on Okanagan River has got as far down as
the bridge. A channel forty feet
wide is being dredged to a depth of
four feet. The grade in the bed of
the river is being made so gradual
that the fall in the stream will be
distributed almost evenly throughout the length of the river between
Okanagan and Lower Okanagan
Lakes. When this dredging work
is finished, it will be navigable for
gasoline launches and small steamboats. This will prove of commercial advantage to Okanagan Falls
and Kaleden as well as afford an
excellent route for excursion parties.—Penticton Press.
The North Vancouver correspondent of the Vancouver World says:
"J. C. Woodrow, whose funeral
took place in Vancouver a few days
ago, is a man well-known to the
earlier residents of this city and district. Mr. Wo.sdrow joined the
council of the municipality of North
Vancouver in the year 1893. In
1897 he was elected reeve, which
position he held for two or three
years. During the closing years of
his office the municipality first
established its ferry service with the
city of Vancouver, and at the same
time passed a loan of $12,000 for
the building of the S.S. North Vancouver. Mayor Hay was one of
the pall-bearers and the district was
represented at the funeral by Reeve
McNaught and Clerk Philip.

J. R. SHAW. A Coming Iron Famine
The greatest danger to the
world's industries at the present
day is the threatened scarcity of
iron, says S. Philipp, a writer in
the September issue of the German
review, Nord und Sud. The exhaustion of the world's iron ore
fields, he contends, is far nearer
than is generally realized, and he
adds that the much talked-of failure
of the coal supply in the near future
would be far less important than a
dearth of iron.
The writer estimates the world's
demand for iron during the next
decade at 60,000,000 tons per annum, which means from 150,000,000
to 180,000,000 tons of ore. Ore
containing less than 20 per cent, of
pure iron is not regarded as worth
snielting. It is, therefore, only the
ore fields yielding more than 20 per
cent, of the metal that enter the
calculation. The largest of these,
that of Kirunavara-I.uossavara, in
Sweden, contains, according to the
latest estimates, from 600,000,000
to 800,000,000 tons of ore, which
would cover the world's needs for
barely five years.
There are, of course, numerous
other sources of supply, but of late
it has become increasingly plain
lhat the probable yield of these has
been greatly overestimated. M.
Sjongren, a Swedish expert, estimates the world's iron ore supply itt
9,250,000,000 tons. To test this
figure thoroughly vvill be the main
task of the International Geological
congress, which is to meet at Stockholm next year. But if Sjongren's
figures be taken as approximately
correct, and if it be further assumed
that the vvorld's demand will remain
stationary at 60,000,000 tons of
crude iron annually, which is hardly
probable, then the result is that
within 60 yeats all the iron ore
fields now known vvill be exhausted.
This period may be lengthened by
a more economical use of iron, new
discoveries in smelting methods, "or
the discovery of fresh ore fields, but
it would be foolish to build too
much hope on these possibilities.
The writer foresees a very black
future for the industrial world once
iron, its mainstay, gives out.
The ore was carefully run off from
one side of the car, when the unfortunate man was found unconscious and in a badly bruised condition from ore falling on him. He
had been in this condition for probably an hour.
In the police court at Toronto
Magistrate Denison dismissed a
charge of theft and disorderly conduct brought against Henry Carson and James Mahoney, members
of the 48th Highlanders, by a United States resident who has a house
on Simcoe street. The men were
returning from the exhibition when
they noticed a United States flag
flying in front of a Simcoe street
residence. .They pulled it down and
tore it to pieces. After hearing the
evidence Magistrate Denison asked:
"What do we want with that flag
here? There are too many of them
in this country. On the part of
the accused this was only an exuberant outburst of enthusiasm. The
case is dismissed."
Duncan McGregor, C P. R.
brakeman, was killed at Mountain
Creek Monday nighl by being
thrown off a car. He fell on a pile
of stones, fracturing his skull, and
died shortly after.
Buried Under Rock.
Phoenix, Sept. 13. -To fall ten
feet into a steel car and be buried
under fifty tons of crushed rock lor
nunc than half M hour and still
live is the experience of Kdward
Kdvvards, who lies in the hospital |
here to-day with good prospects of
recovery.
Kdwards was loading a car of ore
at No. 3, Granby crusher, and fell
from a platform into the car. The
crushed rock continued to fall, and
covered him until the mouth of the
chutes became choked. Foreman
Ingram later discovered the condition of the car, and after making
inquiries came to the conclusion
that Kdvvards was under  the  rock.

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 17,  1909.
Some old-timers are inclined to
speak regretfully of the effect the
advent of the railroad will have on
the business of teaming and coaching. Thc old pack-trains, they say,
will soon be a thing of the past,
the picturesque stage-coach will be
consigned to the scrap heap, and
there will be little further use for
the wagon roads that have been up
till now the main highways of
travel. It is true that some Itage
coaches will be taken off their
routes and some freight wagons
superseded in their present channels
of traffic, but experience shows that
the usual effect of a railroad is to
increase rather than diminish the
volume   of   highway   travel. It
brings about a general readjustment
of traffic conditions. In some cases
it entirely displaces certain lines of
teaming work, but at the same
time it creates so much new business, makes possible so much
traffic that would have been tin-
profitable without it, that the ultimate affect is nearly always an increase in the kind of transportation
which it appears at first io encroach
upon. Teaming and coaching will
drop somewhat from their high
estate, it is true. They will be the
branches where hitherto thev have
been both main lines and branches.
Hut when things are settled to the
new conditions they will be a htggtl
and more important industry than
when thev were alone in the field.
The excellent game laws of Hritish Columbia have the one weak
point that they are insufficiently published and are liable to be unwittingly broken or misunderstood Wt en
by those who try to keep fully up
to date with them. As an example,
the opening of the season for
grousei original!) fixed this year at
Oct. 15, was afterwards changed lo
Sept. 10 for certain districts. Constable Be/art waa mn notified ofthe
change, was unaware ol it, and
was about to make arrests for shooting on Sept. 10 or II when his attention was drawn to an item in the
Chronicle mentioning the new regulation, just in time to avoid an
awkward error. If even game
wardens are not kept notified up to
date, it can hardly be expected that
hunters will at all times know all
the ins and outs of the constantly
changing regulations.
opened was (>08,000 acres. On the
basis of the drawing for each reservation, each person applying for
Coeur d'Alene lands had one chance
in 35, for Spokane land one in 400,
and for Flathead land one in 15.
Uncle Sam is so sternly set against
lotteries that he will not even allow
his mails to be used in their business, so it would be interesting to
have it explained how this little
lottery of his own differs morally
from, say, the Louisiana lottery.
In each case the investor pays out
his good coin to get a ticket which
gives him one chance of getting his
money back many times over as
against a great many chances of
losing it altogether. In each case
far more is paid out by investors in
the aggregate than they get back.
For the majority of winners in the
land drawing it is purely a money
gamble, for the majority never
homestead the land they win. Why
is the one game of chance righteous
and the other wicked ?

As a rule easterners are more impressed with the promise of greatness of the prairie provinces than
with that of Hritish Columbia. The
wealth of the prairies is on the surface, in sight, easily accessible.
Their measure can he taken by simple means and with some degree of
assurance. With Hritish Columbia
the contrary is the case to a large
degree, and it is only the more discerning and foresighted of observers
who can appreciate the splendid
heritage of the Pacific province.
The Toronto Telegram thus concludes an eloquent review of the resources of British Columbia: "And,
let it be remembered that the climate is probably the finest in the

Olalla, Sept. 10.
James Riordan came down last
Saturday bringing' some magnificent
samples of copper ore from the
Billy Goat. Jimmy went to Hedley
on Monday to see all that was to he
seen at the Labor Day celebration,
and on Wednesday he went down
to Chopaca to meet an expert who
is to examine the Riordan Mountain
claims for a prospective buyer.
The improvement in mining mat-
ters here and the high grade ore recently opened up on the Hilly Goat,
Homestake and other claims at the
summit, have already borne good
fruit. Two weeks ago Kd. Whea-
don located a fine dairy ranch about
a mile east of the townsite of Cen-
tromino, the only possible town in
upper Keremeos valley. This ranch
lies at the foot of Green Mountain
and is bounded on the east by Tenass creek, on the south by Keremeos creek and reaches as far west
as the "Russell House," where Mr.
Wheadon will erect a substantial
log building for the accommodation
of mining men, hunters, tourists,
prospectors, miners, and others,
and promises a first- class table and
good beds. The I'enticton-Niekel
Plate wagon road passes through
the location and the Apex road
junction is only a mile further west.
A good part of the land is covered
by tender bunch grass and about
one half is timbered.
I have before me some ore from
the Kingston mine that goes two or
three thousand dollars to the ton.
This ore is a very hard and finegrained garnetite almost exactly the
same as that of  the   Billy   Go.it   m
ly located. The claim staked by
the Englishmen is now the "Afterthought," owned solely by Jas.
Riordan.
WILL BUILD WAGON ROAD
Over    Hope    Mountains   and
Across the Province.
HOTEL KEREMEOS
OPPOSITE G. N. R. STATION.
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works in the provincial government, has returned to Victoria
after a tour of the province. The
minister now has in view a scheme
for a through wagon road from the
Pacific coast to Alberta, passing
through the Hope mountains, the
Okanagan and the Kootenays. To
do this various wagon roads now in
existence will be coupled up so as
to make the whole one complete
line. When finished it will be about
750 miles long.
The minister, when asked what
object was to be served by such an
undertaking, expressed the opinion
that it was a desirable thing to have
a trunk road across the province to
connect with Alberta. Then again
it would be thought to be a model
tourist route, affording those who
sought to travel that way the very
best opportunities of seeing the
country.
In connection with the scheme
the old picturesque Yale-Cariboo
road along the Fraser river ii to be
repaired. This road, which before
the advent of the C.P.R. was the
route by which miners and others
made their way to Cariboo and other
parts of the interior, is famous in
history and in story. The coming
of  the   C.P.R.,  rendered   the   road

This Kingston garnetite,   however,
to the naked eye, a feature I have
not noticed in Riordan mountain
ore. But as depth is reached on
Riordan Mt. this very desirable
condition may be found in evidence.
The garnetite is just the same, but
the depths are different. When the
Billy Goat or the Homestake ^cl
down to the Kingston's depth vvill
this garnetite be similarly studded
with free gold t   I   wonder.
An expert is expected in this
month to examine the Amarath
claim, better known as the "Rocky
Ryan." This claim adjoins the
King Arthur, which adjoins the
Apex on Independence mountain.
James McNulty, K. P. Mathison
and Tom Roderick are the owners,
and have done considerable development work. The ore is chiefly
white arsenical iron carrying high
gold values.
There was a little error in my
history re Stray Morse mountain
last week. It was not Jimmy Riordan who named it Stray Horse,
neither was it his horse that strayed. That honor belongs to two
Knglish prospectors and hunters,
and they also staked a claim on the
mountain, and adjoining the Ram's
Horn, which Riordan had previous-
restoring it there is a band of old
timers in the province who will undoubtedly regard it as the right
move to put in shape the route
which played so important a part in
the history at the province.
On the eastern end of the road
Mr. Taylor says there is a highway
practically from Creston through the
Hod-lea into Alberta. Where the
road is not completed the surveys
have been made and the completion
of it will not require much time.
On the remaining sections advantage will he taken of existing roads.

It is well worth noting that Spokane Kair is advertised in the
Boundary papers but Vancouver is
not; also that all gatherings, conventions, etc., in Spokane extend a
hearty invitation to Boundary editors and business men to attend and
send reports of the conventions
"held in the common interests of
Inland Kmpire." If Vancouver is
not soon joined to the Boundary by
direct rail, Spokane will have this
country annexed in so far as commerce is concerned—and both cities vvill deserve what they get too.

|From the S.-.turday Sunset.]
If any electioneering booster ever
springs the surplus argument in
Similkameen he will get the horse
laugh loud and long. Tatlow's surplus is more than a joke in the Similkameen. It is a cause for derision
and exasperation.
"Why in — do we want a surplus in Victoria when we need trails
and wagon roads in this country!"
exclaimed a well posted prospector
to me. "Here is the blankety blank
Government rolling up a big surplus to look at when all over this
country we are starving for roads
and bridges and trails. Why bless
my soul, if the Government had any
savvy it would open up the country
and give it a chance. If they would
do that they'd get plenty more revenue. The dodgasted mountains
don't produce one cent till a prospector gets in and stakes some
claims. Just the minute he does
that in steps Mr. Government and
begins to collect revenue. And it
keeps on collecting till the claim is
crown granted, and after that it collects more. Then when it is a shipper in comes the Government again
and collects a royalty on the ore.
And before the Government can get
a chance to do any collecting some ed that he was thinking of going to

They are not fit for a coyote to travel on. I am sick of Tatlow and his
blanked surplus."
And that is the tone of the expressions I have heard on all hands.
There is not a single note of approval of the Government's surplus.
There is a great deal of discontent
and exasperation. And with it all
I am compelled to admit that I
agree. Why British Columbia with
her vast undeveloped districts, her
unsurveyed areas of land, the cobwebs of ignorance in the Lands
Department of what the province
has to offer the settler, the crying
need of roads and trails, the burdens of taxation laid upon every
man who makes a move to do something for himself and the province
by exposing the mineral riches of
the province, is a policy which I', in
common with the prospectors and
ranchers of Similkameen, cannot
comprehend.
WHAT A USONIAN THINKS OF THE SIMILKAMEEN.
[From the Vancouver World.)
"I am mighty glad  you   brought
that question up," said   Mr.   James
R. Julian, of Epley, Wash., who  is
assistant commissioner for   Okanagan, Wash., and who was   making
a friendly call at the Bastion this afternoon when a gentleman   remark-
That   is   the   expression  of one
prospector and his  view  is   shared
the country, perhaps with a purpose.
1   go   up   against   the   same   thing
by every man   with   whom   I   have j every  day.     I   have   made   a
discussed the subject.
"Why should L. W. Shatford
have to fight for appropriations for
this district when a man blind in
one eye and cock-eyed in the other
can see what is needed?" said
another. "If it wasn't for Shatford we wouldn't get half what we
do, hut he is a regular bull-dog for
his district. We ought to get roads
and bridges because they are necessary and because it is right, not because our representative fights tooth
and claw to get 'em."
"Who helped to make that surplus, I want to know?" asked a
third. "Haven't we all been taxed to help gather it up. I want to
know what good a surplus is anyhow, lf the money is well spent it
helps the country and that helps the
revenue. The more the country is
developed the bigger the revenue.
I can't see why they want to hoard
up money when thev could invest it
to develop more revenue. It would
look more like business if the Government was running into debt for
public works than hoarding up a
surplus and going to sleep on our
resources. Look at the condition
of some of the trails in this country.

story about the cold and someone is
filling them up with it, sure I tell
(hem that people in onr country
drive cattle 70 miles north to the
Canadian boundary to winter. They
cannot understand going farther
north to get a warmer climate.
They do not figure on the sheltering mountains, and perhaps, have
never heard of the Chinook. Why,
my good friend, in that Similkameen
country, bordering on the Okana-
gan, a pamphlet about which has
just been handed to you, people do
plowing in January. I do not believe in this knocking business,"
continued Mr. Julian. "People
from Ontario come to my booth
sometimes. I know that it is useless to talk United States to them,
when they have better on their own
side, but the more that district
builds up the better for us, and I do
not let them go away with false impressions. I tell you that if I had
the money I would load up with
land in Similkameen and Okanagan,

D. GILLESPIE, Proprietor. National  Anthem   Competition.
Last February "Collier's Weekly," published in Toronto, offered a
prize of $100 and everlasting fame
for the author of the best national
anthem written in English to fit the
music known as "O, Canada,"
which vvas composed by Calixa La-
vallee, a French Canadian, many
years ago, and who died in 1890.
There were over 350 poems sent in,
coming from all over the North
American continent, several from
this province. According to Collier's: "At least three admirable
poems came from British Columbia,
and it looked for a time as though
the palm would go to that far distant province."
The judges, Dr. Pilham Edgar,
Dr. Kdward Broome and Mr. Hector Chatlesworth, were all ofToron-
to, and the prize was awarded to
Mrs. K. P. McCulloch of Toronto,
with one of the judges (Dr. Edgar)
dissenting.
A local gentleman who competed
has just received back his manuscript from Toronto. He was handicapped by the fact that he did
not know the music or the words of
"O Canada,"and had to do the best
he could with the music published
in Collier's (without words) at the
time of the first notice. It is far
more difficult to write words to fit
music than to write music to lit
words.

in the neighborhood   of  10,000  enquiries and sent out probably 30,000
letters and 50,000 items of literature
pertaining to British Columbia.
Rev. Geo. B. Kinney, who was
appointed at the last meeting of the
Methodist conference to the charge
of Keremeos circuit, arrived here on
Wednesday via Penticton, and will
hold his first service in the church
next Sunday evening at 7.30. At
the meeting of Conference in May
Mr. Kinney, who was then stationed at James Bay, Victoria, asked to
be left for a year without a regular
appointment, in order to carry out
certain plans which he had in view
and which would interfere with continuous work at one point. But in
view ofthe shortage of supply for
the fields to be covered the Conference was unwilling to grant a full
year, and it was arranged that he
should have leave of absence for
three months and then come to Keremeos. The Superintendent of Missions was to have acquainted the
people of Keremeos vvith the arrangement, but did not do so, con-
sequentlv it was expected here that
Mr. Kinney would have arrived
sooner.
The appointment of a man of Mr.
Kinney's standing in the ministry to
the pastorate of Keremeos is a
gratifying recognition of the growing importance of the Similkameen
;is a field lor church work. Hitherto the supply in this field has
been rather desultory. After Mr.
Nixon's departure about three years
ago Mr. Hibbert was stationed here
for awhile before being appointed to
Penticton, and after him Mr. Jones
for a short time. Since Mr. lones
lett about a year ago there has been
only occasional supply from outside.
Mr. Kinney has spent most ol
his ministerial life in the west, in
Manitoba and for the last nine
years in British Columbia, his last
appointment being at Victoria,
where he was highly esteemed for
his aptitude and energy in church
work. His field here will practically include the whole of the
Similkameen. As yet no schedule
of servicer h;; been made out, but
regular dates for Keremeos and
lleillev vvill he fixed and announced
shortly.
On Wednesday Constable Kwart
noticed a bush lire on Ihe Barcelo
range near (lie summit, and Charlie
Reid was sent np to attend lt> it.
He was .ible to check it without further assist, nice.
Geo. Kraser of Chilliwack, with a
couple of friends, stopped in Keremeos on Tueadajl and Wednesday
in the course of a trip through the
Similkameen, N'icola and other valleys, buying horses and spotting
land with a view to making invest- I
ments.
The provincial forestry commission, sitting at Vernon, was asked
by lhe municipalities of Vernon and
Armstrong to advise a forest reserve
on Aberdeen .vatershed for the
benefit of the towns' water supply.
Mr.Fulton, speaking for the government, virtually promised that the
reserve would be made.
