Fittingly   Celebrated   at   Various Points in tho Valley.
"Queen's weather" prevailed on
Dominion Day—bright and warm,
tempered by a g-entle breeze. The
favorite form of recreation for the
day was the picnic party, of which
there were several at different points.
At one, held at a favorite spot on
the picturesque Fairview road,
there were about 75 people from
the town and vicinity, and the day-
was enlivened by an impromptu
program of sports -baseball, football, etc.
Quite a number, too, went to
Princeton expecting a day of pleasure unalloyed, but instead were
treated to a series of disagreeable
experiences which were none the
more tolerable from the fact that
the Keremeositcs themselves were
partly to blame for them. One of
the features of Princeton's celebration was a baseball tournament,
Keremeos, Hedley and the home
team contending for a purse of $100.
As a starter the Princetons gave a
taste of their yellowness by refusing tO play on even terms and arro-
i gating the bye to themselves on the
specious plea that they were the
weakest team. The first game,
Keremeos vs. Medley, was a surprise party for the up-valley sports,
j who until it short time before had
j been cock-sure of a win. The
i score was 20 to 4 in favor of the
Hub. In this and in the succeeding game as well, a too free indulgence in bluffing and betting produced its usual effect as a sport-spoiler
iind a breeder of ill-feeling; and
the two upper towns joined dogs in
a concerted effort to down Keremeos by fair means or foul. With
this end in view the Princetons
strengthened themselves with the
pick of the Hedleyites and a crack
pitcher from Nicola .-ind catcher
from Otter Flat. In the opening
two innings the K.'s took a nervous streak and let in five runs,
through errors, to one of their own,
a four-bagger by Pooler. In the
third, however, they found themselves. Carmichael hit safely, Herald was hit by the pitcher, and
Pooler received a vicious in-shoot
on the elbow. This filled the base
with none out, and the prospects
seemed excellent for at least evening the score in that inning. Hut
Pooler was too badly injured to proceed, and VV. Daly was used up
through having hurt his hip in a
slide to second during the game
with Hedley. When it was proposed to borrow a man from Hedley, however, the home team claimed ii monopoly in that   line, and re
fused to consent to a loan except of
a man of their own choice. Of
course it was impossible to continue
in the face of such an absurd heads-
I-win-tails-you-lose proposition, and
the game eras stopped. Considerable money was up, and objections
to paying the stakes gave rise to
several ugly disputes. The 45-mile
drive each way and the experiences
of the day made it altogether a
pretty strenuous holiday for the
One lesson of the day was forcibly demonstrated, that open betting and challenging to bet 00 the
field should be discouraged in the
interest of true sport. There maybe no harm in a little side wager
"to make it interesting," but when
a game is made a general ebject of
t gain rather than of enjoyment, ill-
feeling is inevitable.

birthday and day of general rejoicing and slaughter. Statisticians
have figured out that a far greater

celebrating American independence
than were lost in achieving it.
Mr. Bentley, wife and sister, who
were through here some time ago
and have since purchased a preemption on Trout Creek, are in
town for the purpose of buying
some horses.
Among those from Keremeos who
attended the sports at Princeton on
the First were C. V. Prosser, O. L.
Clark, P. H. Parsons, A. J. Saunders, W. Richter, W. Lowe, Sam
McCurdy and F. Smitheran.
At the Penticton races Keremeos
was represented by horses owned
by H. Richter and D. J. Innis.
Particulars of results are not to
hand, but we understand that both
contestants were successful in capturing prizes.
Princeton has telephone connection but no public service, the
reason being that while the duties
pertaining to the office are exacting,
the remuneration is so measly that
no business man there cares to
bother with it.
There was a family gathering at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Innis on
Saturday, Mrs. Forbes of Hedley
and Mr. and Mrs. Clark being
present. The occasion marked the
second anniversary of Mr. and Mrs.
Innis' wedding.
A party of immigrants from Idaho
-six men, with a number of women
and children, horses, wagons and
goods, are camped at Keremeos,
where they must pass customs inspection and an examination of
their live stock by veterinary surgeon Ci. S. Jermyn of Myncaster.
When the party started on their
long trek they also had a cow-
along, hut the journey proved too
trying for Bossy, and they sold her
on the way. They are bound for
Buckley Valley.

Mr. Osborne, general merchant,
hits come to the conclusion that
there is a quicker and brisker field
for business up on the new (irand
Trunk Pacific line than is at present
available in the Similkameen, and
therefore intends to sell out here
ami point for Prince Rupert. Rupert is a very alluring spot from a
business point of view. The first
110 miles of railroad to be built
eastward from the town will cost
approximately $100,000 a mile,
which means that eleven millions of
good cash wi!l be handled in the
little town, besides other business
that the opening up of the country-
will create. It is no wonder that
P. R. looks good to so many people.

J. F. Rover intends to leave on
Monday for Spokane, one object of
his trip being to buy a motor car
for use in his livery. It ought to
be a good investment if it doesn't
scare half the horses in the valley
into conniptions.
A traveling agent has been in
Keremeos a few days with the rather thorny proposition of selling
shares in a wireless telegraph company. Such an ethereal enterprise
is likely to be looked at askance in
these days of limitless issues of divi-
dendless stocks.
I. L. Deardorff, supervisor of
roads, was in town on Monday on
his way to Osoyoos. His work on
hand there is to build a road southeasterly across Haynes Creek and
as far as Sid ey's, which is about 15
miles from Osoyoos and a mile
north of the boundary line. Pete
Gordon will survey the road, assisted by Mr. Aulds, the school teacher
at Fairview, and Charlie Thomas of
Keremeos. Thomas & Barcelo
will close their shop and billiard
room for the summer, finding that
in the present stage of the town's
growth there are better returns to
be had in other ways, but intend to
re-open it later on.
This bear story conies from the
Atwood ranch a few miles east of
Nelson, and is vouched for. A
Mr. Hickman, who is employed by
Mr. Atwood on his ranch, heard
some rocks coming down one of
the hills and after supper proceeded
to investigate the cause of it. Taking his 22 rifle along with him he
started up the hill and after climbing some distance glanced up to see
a large cinnamon bear about twenty-
five feet away from him gradually
coming towards him. He immediately climbed a small tree which
Wits near at hand, and had the
presence of mind to take his rifle in
his teeth while making the ascent.
Mrs. Bear kept right on coining,
but, fortunately for Mr. Hickman,
the tree was too small for her to
climb. He took one shot at the
boar which went home, the bear
falling over dead, being hit in the
head. Mr. Hickman, thinking that
there must be some cubs near to
make the bear so ferocious, started
ii search, with the   result   that   two
were located in a tree a short distance away. He procured an ax
and chopped the tree down, but in
the fall one was so badly hurt that
he killed it, the other one escaping.
When skinned the mother bear's
hide measured eight feet from tip to
tip.    Hick nan states that he is no
longer curious to find out where
strange noises come from, and will
hereafter leave the rock slide alone,
especially if he only has a 22 rifle.

Tweddle & Reith,
Proprietors. Obituary.
The Boundary Times has the following- account of the late Mrs.
Dowding, a notice of whose death
appeared in last  week's  Trumpet :
The death of Mrs. Emilia Dowding, which occurred at Spokane on
Friday last, removes one of those
brave women who came from the
best homes of England to the fringes of civilization in British Columbia in the early days. During the
visit of the fleet at Seattle, Mrs.
Dowding contracted a severe cold
which developed into erysipelas,
ending in heart trouble. Her death
occurred after a brief illness at the
home of C. W. Sansom, of Spokane.
Mrs. Dowding was born in 1852
on the island of Ma'ta, where her
father, Major Pettendrigh, was
commander of the British garrison.
When her father was ordered to
British Columbia in charge of the
sappers and miners, who were the
first British troops to be stationed
in the Province, his daughter accompanied him. Later she married
Judge Haynes, whose estate in the
Okanagan valley is famous throughout the Province. After his death
the widow returned to England,
where she was married after a time
to Captain Dowding, a retired army
officer, and after his death she returned again to British Columbia.
Mrs. Dowding is survived by two
sons and three daughters : Val
Haynes, of Penticton ; Sherman
Haynes, of Seattle; Mrs. R. H.
Parkinson, of Kelowna; Mrs. Dr.
White, of Okanagan ; Mrs. Gar-
dom, of Vancouver; and her father,
Major Pettendrigh, who lives in
New Westminster, enjoying good
health in his 82nd year.
The remains of the deceased were
taken to Osoyoos, where the funeral
took place on Wednesday, and was
largely attended.
Roads Must be Gazetted.
In the case of McBride vs. the
Crown, an appeal against the decision of Henry Nicholson, J. P., of
Camp McKinney, upholding an action for trespass against David McBride of Bridesville, His Honor
Judge Brown delivered an important judgment. It has been the
custom throughout the province
for the Assistant Commissioner of
Lands, after conferring with the
superintendents of roads, to decide
what roads were necessary, and to
construct them, resuming, at their
pleasure, wherever necessary, possession of land which has become
private property in order to do so.
The appellant in the case had fenced off a piece of road, near the
Rock Mountain road which had
heen built over his land with his
permission, by one Schweers, and
which in the building of a road
connecting the Bridesville-Osoyoos
road with the Rock Mountain road
had been simply taken possession
of and incorporated   in the   road by
J. R. Brown, Assistant Land Commissioner. The case was complicated because this piece of road
made connection with the Rock
Mountain road on which the government had spent money and which
had been Gazetted by the government prior to 1905. An action for
trespass for so obstructing the public highway had been allowed by
the J. P., before whom it came.
The argument centered about Sec.
87 and Sec. 88 of the Land Act,
1908. His Honor held that it is
incumbent upon the commissioners
to have the roads Gazetted before
private property can be so taken
and the roads really become public
highways. The decision is particularly important inasmuch as it will
make it more difficult for injustice
to be done to land holders by M. P.
P.'s disposing of the monies voted
for roads in ways that shall react
to their political advantage rather
than to the general good.—Boundary Times.
It is understood that Premier McBride, Hon. H. E. Young, Hon.
W. J. Bowser, and Hon. F. J.
Fulton will leave the coast on July
6th on a visit to Ashcroft, Kamloops, Revelstoke and Golden.

Dominion \v;is 41 years of agt
which might fairly lie counted as
years of discretion in the age of an
individual, hut is mere infancy for a
nation. Nevertheless, Canada has
made marvelous progress since the
day when, 41 years ago, the string
of weak and scattered colonies met
under the leadership of a few able
and far-seeing statesmen and undertook the titanic task of creating a
nation from the raw material of a
wild continent. How well and
wisely those huilders worked, and
how well they were justified in their
faith in the future, we scarcely
realize even yet, but enough has
been accomplished to justify the
assurance that in the course of another generation, or two at the
most, Canada will rank in power
and importance with the leading
nations of the earth. This is not
hifalutin, but sober fact. Taking
stock of the Dominion to-day, we
find that in wealth, population, revenue and trade she already outranks
many important European countries ; and that her tate of growth
is relatively more rapid than that of
any other country - even of the
United States just now, which is
losing more than it is gaining Immigration, while Canada gains
about 1000 a day, mostly of good
assimilable people of our own race.
And in potential resources plainly
in sight but not yet developed, it
cannot be denied that the Dominion
is absolutely without a peer.
Canada has passed through many
critical and perilous stages in the
course of her growth, both before
and since Confederation, but the
outcome of every crisis, whether its
occasion was internal strife or invasion from abroad, has been to
prove the sound and deep-seated
strength of the people and their
capacity for sane self-government.
Without doubt there are other
crises to be met in the future. So
far as ordinaly foresight can judge,
the most probable danger, especially for this Province, is invasion
from Asia. Hut whatever is in
store, we can face the future with
confidence. Time is on our side.
Kvery year, at an accelerating rate,
lhe strength and security of the
nation become greater and firmer,
and it becomes ever more evident
that "the twentieth century belongs
to Canada."

Cemetery Meeting.
At a well intended and representative meeting of the citizens of
Keremeos and surrounding district
held in the town hall on Monday
evening it was decided to abandon
the present cemetery and purchase
two acres near the old town site
from the Keremeos Land Company.
The trustees were authorised to
complete the deal as soon as possible, and offer lots in the new
cemetery ftir sale. In this way it is
hoped to raise sufficient funds to
pay for the property, fence it and
Binka such other improvements as
are necessary. The scale of prices
decided upon is : single grave $4.00,
section of four graves $12.50, section of eight graves $25.00.
The Importance of having the I
new cemetery fenced and put in
thape at once should appeal to
every one. As this will depend entirely upon the sale of lots it is to
be hoped that intending purchasers
will see the secretary, Mr. Stoess,
at an early date and make their
selection. Amounts already subscribed toward improving the old
cemetery may be applied as part of
the purchase price on lots in the
new one.
