I he   oldtimers1   annual   reunion
held al the Central Hotel last Thursday cannot be descrihed as anything
but a rousing success. Considerable disappointment was felt, when,
On arrival of the Stage coaches and
train, it was learned that, owing to
sickness and other unavoidable
causes, a great many of the old
tilicuma, who have always taken
an active interest in the association
from its inception, were prevented
Irom being present.
However, this was not allowed to
interfere seriously with the arrange*
ments. These old pioneers have
always been used to accepting
things as they lind them and making the best of every occasion. The
tew who were present held their
business   Westing   at    live   o'clock,
elected officers for the ensuing year,
admit led new members, made the
necessary arrangements   for   future
meetings and passed a resolution of
regret at the removal, under such
distressing circumstances, of Charlie
I hornet, an old and esteemed member of the association.
The officers elected for the ensuing year are : F. Richter, Keremeos, President; A. Megraw, lledlev. Secretary and J. R. Jackson,
Midway, Treasurer.
The following oldtimers from the
Similkameen applied and were made
John   Bromley,   Geo.
Cawston, F. Richter, P. Surprise,
M. Barcelo, \V. Manery, Wm.
Richter, C.   I.owe,    Alex    Molhwell,

It  was unanimously decided  to
hold the neil meeting at Fairview,
and future meetings alternately al
places throughout the district which

there were not more of those pre-
I sent to share in the enjoyment of
the occasion. A mark of thought-
fulness thai was greatly appreciated
was the placing on each  plate   of  a

about half that number including
guests were present. Ihe members

lhe ncwlv elected president and also
the oldest pioneer   present,    set  the
ball rolling l > narrating how, in ihe

and how he scared them oil by plac-

his experiences 35 years ago in
bringing in apple trees over the
Hope Mountains on pack horses,
and of the many foes that beset that
young orchard, of its ultimate success and of the great boon which
the fruit proved.
J. H. East and Major Megraw
reviewed in pleasing style lhe development ofthe mining industry in
Southern B. C, and emphasized
lhe important part taken by the
early pioneers—the prospectors -in
the bluing of trails and the opening

every one at lhe festive board was
connected with one or more toasts
and each contributed according lo
his ability, inthe evening1* entertainment songs by Messrs. Kirby
and Campbell heing particularly appreciated.
A well deserved vote of thanks
was tendered Mrs. Richter and Miss
Phelps, who undertook the arrangements for the banquet, and to whose
skill and energy in so ably carrying
out all the details, so much of the
evening's enjoyment  depended.

his lofty perch on top of a load of
fruit, took copious notes ot the
country passed through, We regret thai the space al our disposal
will not permit us to publish in full
the account he has handed in of his
trip, but condensed, it is as follows :
The government has provided the
valley with a good road, considering
the rocky and mountainous nature
ol the land, but in places railing

accidents when driving. The Keremeos Company's ditch is certainly a
work of engineering skill.    The big

Princeton, 25 miles further up
the valley than Hedley, has a nice
level townsite at the foot of the pine
clad mountains and commands a
charming view, the hills stretching
away and rising one above the other
till the snow capped summits ol the
cascades are reached. Here the
altitude is much higher than at Keremeos and only the hardier varieties
of fruits can be grown with success.
The hills and range land, however,
are covered with an abundance ot
rich bunch grass and it is here that

_H Suspects Ai rested at Nicola.
Constable Cillis of Greenwood, |
who, in company with Constable I
Ashton of Midway, went up the
valley last week following the trail
of a couple of men whom they suspected of being the Midway "bad
una," returned yesterday morning
on his way home. They located
their men at Nicola where they
were engaged working in the mines
of the Nicola Coal and Coke Co.
The arrest was made on Tuesday
morning jusl as the men were preparing   to begin   their day's work.
No weapons or incriminating evi-
dsnce of any kind was found on
them, but Constable Cillis is confident that they arc the two who
were in Midway at the time of
Thomet's murder and upon whom
suspicion rests. It is thought by
some that they may prove to be the
two men who were arrested here
some weeks ago and released after
being held a short time.
The men, who give the names of
John Rice and Harry Creen, are being taken to (ireenwood by Constable Ashton to stand their trial.
A severe frost last night, the first
of the season, caused a transformation in one or two of the fine gardens here, more especially the flower
gardens. Magnificent beds of zinnias of every hue from white to
crimson, orange, buff, sulphur etc.
were reduced to one common drab
after Jack Frost breathed on them,
but asters and stocks were not injured. Melon and potato vines
were also utterly blighted.
The usual mining excitement
which breaks out annually as the
cool weather approaches seems to
be on time this year and many rumors are in circulation as to the
bonding of this, that and the other
properties within a hundred miles of
camp. It it quite true that several
options have been given on certain
claims, but some owners have destroyed all chance of bonding by the
absurd conditions they have imposed.
It is stated here that the Dolphin
mill will soon be starting up, another deal having been put through.
Charlie, Jordan, one of the owners,
was called lo Spokane by telegram
last week, and this lends support to
the statement thai the property is
to be worked again.
A new gattielitc find was made in
the Bullion last week. The discovery
is bight up than any of tl.i present
workings a, I '.eems to be right
under a bi^ granular lime dyke.
The garnetite carries considerable-
white iron and copper and will probably assay well.

continued agitation is successful in
accomplishing the reform aimed at.
