I, 2 and .1 year old peach trees in J. J. Armstrongs orchard.
The young orchards, the two,
three and four-ye.i- olds and those
in full bearing, have a'l made an extraordinary growth during the summer a growth due to some extent
to the comparative lightness ot   the
crop   and the fruit, especially the
apples, is an exceptionally good
sample. Specimen lots taken almost at random would be worthy
of a place In an exhibition, and it
will be a matter of reproach to our
growers if they do not take advantage of the opporlunity afforded by
the lall fairs and the Spokane apple
show to show the world what Keremeos orchards can do.
The young peach trees have made
marvelous growth and look most
promising. Next year there will be
over a thousand ol them in bearing.
Planting has gone on apace this
season, both in lilting out established orchards and in making new
ones, and the new slock almost all
looks exceedingly thrifty. Of the
newer orchards across the river,
planted this year or last, August
I'edy has 200 trees, A. Robertson
..00,   Quant   Bros.    S(X),    P.    Sorge
l.sii, Mr. Bratz 150,  S.  Crampton
500, J. Voting 100 and there are
others. In fact some of the best
development work in the district
has been done on the south side ot
the ri\cr, and a trip up and down
from the bridge is a revelation to
any one who has not been OVCt
there lately. August I'edy, for instance, after less than a year's work,
has a COtnfbrtabh] duelling, 201)
thrifty trees, three acres ol   bottom
water wheel somewhat like those of
biblical times. Thev have found
the device to work admirably so
long as the water was high, but
find that thev will have to adjust it
to low water as well as high in order to make its usefulness complete.
Jack Thomas is also putting in a
system of bis own, a gravity system
taking water from the Similkameen
some distance up from his lot.
The B. C. Fruitland Co., though
i hey have directed their energies
mainly this season towards disposing of the Shatford property, have
not neglected their holdings across
the river. On lot 2400, just above
the lirst railway hridge, a large plot
was plowed ready for planting and
a total of I 10 acres sold to O. Davis, II. M. Gowan, G. Partridge, I..
Gilchrist and H.  P. Gibson.
It is only lait to assume that this
year's progress, considerable as it
is, is bv no means a measure of
what may be expected now lhat one
of the essential conditions an irrigation system has been provided,
and that the other essential a
through railway line is well under
way. Hitherto planters have been
disposed to go slowly in taking up
land, aiul then were constrained to
go slowly in making plantations;
but now that all obstacles are out
of the way or their end in sight,
there is nothing lo prevent a rapid
settlement aad full development of
the fruit lands.
Monday, Oct. 23, is the date   set
for Thanksgiving Day.

J. R. SHAW. RAILWAY NOTES.
The steam shovel that has been
at work for some time at the bluff
east of the town, taking out ballasting material, finished its work there
for the time heing on Saturday and
was taken up to a point above
Hedley. Although material has
been taken out here and hauled lor
nearly all the track as far as Hedley, the cutting is still not wide
enough to give room for a wagon
road along the foot ofthe bluff, but
it is expected that laic on a use
will be found for a further quantity
of the gravel sufficient to give the
required space.
At the beginning of this week
track-laying had been completed to
within some eight or ten miles of
Princeton, and it should be completed to Princeton bridge by the
end of the week. Construction of
the hridge is well advanced, and
the indications are that the line vvill
be comp'eted to the town at the
scheduled date, Oct. 15th.
Chief Engineer Hoagland came
up on Monday night, an engine
having been sent down to pick up
his car at Oroville. On Tuesday
he went np by rail to the end of the
track and drove from there to
Princeton.
Divisional Superintendent Morgan
came up on Wednesday on a special.
Mr. Guthrie, of Guthrie & Co.,
contractors, of St. Paul, came up
on Wednesday morning to consult
with Kngineer Hoagland. Gulhrie
& Co. have the contract for the
Orovil'e-Brewster section of the
Oroville-Wenatchee line, and are
about to start work on it. They
expect to have the line finished to
Brewster within a year.
Mrs. Robinson's Lectures.
Instead of   the   regular   religious
services in   the   church   on   Sunday
evening,   a   mass   meeting   will   be
held    under    the   auspices    ol    the i
Ladles' Aid Society,  in  the course;
of which Mrs. A. T. Robinson,
F.R.S.G.S., will deliver the first of
a series tf popular lectures entitled
"National Righteousness." On
Monday evening her subject will be
"Japan and the Japanese as I saw
Them," on Tuesday "The Sweating
System of Great Britain," and on
Wednesday "Russia and its Island
Prision, Saghalien." For the first
three of these no admission will be
charged, hut a collection taken.
On Wedncsduv evening the admission will be 25c. Mrs. Robinson is
not only a great traveler, but combines the gift of keen observation
with a talent of vivid description of
the scenes of her travels. Her narration of experiences in foreign
landa should he of great interest.

Evaporated Tomatoes.
\ method of preset ting tomatoes
that is very useful for certain purposes is given hy Mrs. F. Schneider,
as follows: Take ripe tomatoes
and put for one minute  in   hot    wa
ter, peel and slice, put slices in pans
on top of stove and boil slowly,
stirring to keep from burning, until all the water is evaporated, then
put the remaining paste or pulp on
plates and dry on stove or in the
sun. One pound of this dry concentrate contains all the substance
except water of more than 25 lbs.
of raw tomatoes. It is especially
useful for making soup or catsup.
To make catsup put one tablespoon-
ful of evaporated tomatoes in a cup
of cold water, let it stand two
hours, stir till fine, and add vinegar,
salt, sugar and ground spices to
suit.
Those who had the pleasure of
hearing K. Pauline Jonhson on the
occasion of her former appearance
hers' will be pleased at the announcement that she will give an
entertainment in the town hall tomorrow evening, supported by Miss
Lucy Webling and Mr. Walter McRaye. The program will be largely one ol humor and comedy , as
well as the dramatic renditions in
which Miss Johnson excels. Her
present tour is Miss Jonnson's goodbye to British Columbia and the
stage.

Its value to this country will be incalculable, especially to Ontario
and British Columbia. Ontario
is exceedingly rich in ores, it has a
well developed industrial system
and an efficient industrial population, but it has no coal. Now that
"white coal," or water power, takes
its place as a practical source of
heat as well as of power, the chain
is complete and the province's industrial horizon incalculably widened. To British Columbia electric
smelting should be peculiarly useful
in bringing the means for treating
ore to the mouth of many a rich
mine which has hitherto lain dormant through the difficulty and
tost of transportation. Thus used
it would help greatly toward solving
our primary problem of transportation by rendering transportation
unnecessary.
It has been said that the C.P.R.
was built by Scotch enterprise with
English money and owes its success
to Irish adaptability,—which is no
doubt as near to the truth as most
epigrams. At any rate, it is doubtful if any other transportation company in the world has so fully appreciated the fact that its functions
may properly include not only handling business and drawing business,
but creating business as well. It is
doubtful if any other company has
put this feature of its operations in
so prominent a place in its program.
Where tourists may be attracted,
their patronage is nailed by proper
accommodation. Where lands are
to be settled, settlers are sought
and brought in. Where lands are
arid, the company irrigates them
by the million acres and rapidly
colonizes them, even going so far
as to break the sod, build on them
and otherwise prepare them for
occupation.    On Vancouver Island, |

to get the land settled, for it is no

When we clear the land we make
nothing out of the work directly.

Arrangements are being made
for establishing the first electric
smelting plant in Canada, at Sault
Ste. Marie, in connection with the
Lake Superior Consolidated Company's iron and steel plant. The
company is to install a number of
furnaces similar to those in operation in Sweden. Another plant is
to be established at Chats Falls for
the treatment of iron ores on the
Ottawa river. Up till recently electric smelting has been confined to
small experimental plants, but it
has now progressed so far as to be in
the following from a despatch published in a London paper: "A despatch   from   Vernon,   Vancouver
Island, B. C, reports a disastrous
fire which occurred at a hotel on the
shore of the lake." But it is not
necessary to go outside ot Canada
to find vague notions of western
geography. An Ontario wholesale
merchant, recently giving evidence
in court, was asked where a certain
letter he had received had come
from. His reply was: "It came
from out west, away out, either
British Columbia or Winnipeg,
some place around there."

B. C   Immigration.
The figure., denting with in.migration into Hritish Columbia within the past live years have just been
issued by the Dominion government
From Jan. 1, 1904, to May 31 of
the present year, 91,425 immigrants
entered Hritish Columbia. When
the last census was taken in llX)l
the population was 178,057, an increase of 80,484 in the previous ten
years. Allowing the same rate of
increase between the time the census was taken in 1901 and Jan. 1
1'K)4, the province should have had
on the latter date a population ot
about 20.1.000. Add to this the
number of immigrants who have
come in since and there should now
be about ..00,000 people in the province, without taking into consideration the number who have come to
Hritish Columbia from the other
provinces of the Dominion. These
it is estimated wonld brine. *l<- -*-
al up to .150,000 at least. If these
figures are correct, or approximately so, and they appear reasonable, !
Hritish Columbia should have a
population of 400,000 when the next
census is taken.
Hut while the showing of the past
five years is on its face quite grati-1
tying, it is not quite so satisfactory
when examined. Of the 91,425 immigrants who came in during that
time no less than 21,013 were Asiatics, including 12,484 Japanese, 5,-
131 Hindus and 3,448 Chinese.     It
may be sai.l that owing to the new
regulations brought into effect as a
result of the protests of the people
of this province this Asiatic immigration has been to a large extent
stepped, but the fact remains that
this number of these people have
come in, and are still, with veryi
lew exceptions, living in the province, and, with the thousands of
other Orientals who were here before they came, are bound to remain for long years a most important factor in the country's life.
Hut turning from the dark side of
the immigration of the pnst five
years, there is a bright one to he
seen. During the five years no less
than 22,397 immigrants came from
the old country 15,521 from England, 5,409 from Scotland, 1,030
from Ireland and 437 from Wales.
In addition to these there were 38,-
750 from the l'nited States. The
remainder of the 91,425 came largely from various European countries and British possesions in different parts of the world.

The hot springs at Harrison lake,   h|j ^ ;U jq tm§ to ^ ;icre
famed for   their  curative  qualities,
are in danger.
Valuable deposits of minerals
have been found in and around the
springs, claims have been staked,
and now a desperate legal struggle
threatens between the holders ofthe
mineral rights and the owners of
the springs.
The definition of the respective
rights of the holders of the newly
discovered mineral claims and the
owners of the springs, is a nice legal point, and if once it reaches the
courts of the province, promises all
sorts of work for lawyers.
The discovery of minerals in the
neighborhood of the springs was
made by John O. t'oulthard of
Princeton, son of Major Coulthard,
formerly of Sapperton. It is stated
that Mr. Coulthard has discovered
both copper and gold in large quantities and that he has staked practically thc whole of the area occupied by the springs.
In the opinion of experts mining
operations carried on anywhere in
the vicinity of the springs, even
though the actual area occupied by
them were passed over, would jeopardize tht existence of the springs.
The course by which the waters
reach their outlets is not known,
and disturbance of the strata anywhere in   the   neighborhood   might

Vernon Local Railway.
The plans of the Couteau Power
company for the construction of a
tram line eastward from Vernon
through :i rich fruit-growing section are maturing rapidly. Surveyors have been going through the
district for some time and statistics
have been gathered concerning the
possible revenue from light and
power in the different localities
which will be served. The company
has the financial backing of Knglish
capitalists and will develop the
power of Shuswap river falls, twenty-live miles from Vernon. It is reported that there is sufficient power
at this point to electrify the entire
Okanagan vallev. It is planned to
build the tram line from Vernon
eastward through the Coldstream
ranch property lo the power plant,
a distance of some twenty-five miles,
to start with, according lo report.
It is understood that work is to he
started on the power plant this year
and that the tram line will be pushed to completion at   an early  date.

from Princeton and is near the main

GEO. CAWSTON. OKANAGAN FALLS.
The Rev. Mr. Cameron, before
closing his service here on Sunday
morning, made favourable mention
of the interest of the settlers in the
mission, referred to the bright prospects before the district, and expressed the belief that in the near
future the Lower Okanagan would
be a fruit-grower's paradise.
The new road from Okanagan
Falls to Myers' Valley is good evidence that Xeil McLean can do his
road work in a workmanlike manner. From the bridges for one mile
the road is built across shell-rock
slides, and then there is a switchback trail up the mountain side.
From a point near the summit of
the switchback there is a delightful
view of the north country, including Okamtgan Falls, Lower Okanagan Lake, Penticton and Okanagan Lake. Green Lake, on the top
of the mountain, almost within
sight of the Okanagan valley, is
clear of weeds, appears to be of
good depth, and is a most valuable
asset for the mountain  settlers.
A meeting of the settlers was
held in the school house on Saturday afternoon to complete arrangements for securing by gift or purchase two or more acres for a cemetery. The meeting was attended
by nearly all the male residents, and
the results were most satisfactory.
The townsite company gave one
acre free and an option on two acres at $100 an acre, and a year to

J. II. McDonald, a well known
prospector of Rossland, had a thrilling adventure with bears ou a prospecting trip from which he recently
ret in tied. While crossing the summit in the Kootenay river district
his attention was attracted by the
.vhining of some animal across a
small ravine. On looking closely
he observed a large brown bear at
the foot of a tree in the act of making her two cubs ascend the tree,
where they would be out of danger.
It was evident that the mother bear
had scented the presence of a man
and desired to hide her progeny.
When the cubs had ascended the
tree the mother came at a good gait
toward Mr. McPonald, who in describing the adventure said:
"I let her come within 100 feet of
where I stood, took careful aim over
the sights of my rifle and killed her
instantly. Then I went to the tree
where the cubs were, and being eager to capture them alive, proceeded to cut the tree down. 1 stood
my rifle up against another tree 15
feet away, and when the tree was
cut about half-way through I heard
a noise behind me, and turning
round was somewhat surprised to
see the male bear coming rapidly
toward me, and only a few feet
away from where my rifle stood
against the tree. I had a 44-cal-
ibre revolver in my belt, and pulling it quickly I succeeded in hitting
the enraged animal twice, the latter bullet breaking his hack. The
bear fell within six feet of where I
stood, groaning so loudly that he
could be heard from a considerable
distance. During the combat I lost
my footing on the steep slope on
which I was standing, and slipping,
fell a distance of ten feet, fracturing one of my ribs. I was determined, however, to secure those
cubs, and returned to the tree, and
not being able to cut it down, owing to my fractured rib, I took up
my rifle and dispatched them. I
removed lhe pelts Irom the bodies
of the two larger animals. They
weighed over 40 pounds each when
green,and 1 had to throw my blankets away, as 1 could not pack them J
and the bides to the railway."

The Prince R"pert "Optimist"
gives the following account of the
record blast set off in that town:
Two hundred and fitly million
pounds! Is your mental calibre
large enough to conceive all that at
Once? It is a lot of weight. Gulliver in all his travels never met a
giant who could raise it. An army
of a thousand men could not pack
it up Centre Street in a year. Yet
that weight was lilted in Prince Rupert on Tuesday at one time, and
rather quickly, too. It was the!
second largest .shot put off on the
townsite, and it was a remarkable
one in its success. The w hole side
oi a small mountain was shattered,
and the hills miles away shook with
tbe shock. It took 1,010 cases, or
25 1-4 tons, oi xirile, and 800 lbs.
of dynamite as detonator, to do   it.
For several weeks Contractors
Ross it McColl have had faagl al
work tunneling the high bluff just
below the big wharf. They had
two coyote holes, with several
chambers leading from them. These
were loaded with powder and tamped. On Tuesday evening the big
shot was ready, and a crowd of
Spectators gathered on the hills to
watch the effect. Into this barrier
of rock the contractors had put
thousands of dollars' worth of work,
and more thousands ol dollars'
worth of powder. Certainly the
shot was ol more than passing interest to them.
The signal was given and the
battery was   struck!     There   was   a
