Contracts Let for Branch to the
Residents of the entire Okanagan will note with interest the
progress that is being made towards the linking up of the
branch of the Great Northern
Railway running into the Similkameen with that company's
main line between Spokane and
Seattle. The projected road,
which runs from Oroviile, on the
Okanagan River, south to Brewster at the confluence of that
river with the Columbia and
thence south to Wenatchee, midway between Seattle and Spokane, is now under contract between Oroviile and Brewster.
The eventual extension of this
road from Oroviile to Penticton,
a distance of about forty miles,
will place this point in direct
communication with Seattle and
The following, cut from the
Oroviile Weekly Gazette, sets
forth the situation as it stands
at present:
' 'At the time of going to press
there was no visible evidence of
the immediate beginning of work
on the Oroville-Brewster branch,
but the air is surcharged with
premonitions of an early beginning, and there is time yet for
the advance guard of the construction outfit to reach here before the wind up of the week.
The best indication that the com
munity is satisfied that the time
is at hand when there is to be a
realization of promises is that the
most skeptical no longer doubt;
the heretofore scoffer ceases to
scoff. The building is to be
done, and is to be crowded to a
finish. This is admitted and acknowledged on all hands. Persons may err a day or two in
guessing when work will commence, but i. trilling postponement of a few clays now no longer awakens suspicion that commencement will be delayed indefinitely. The company and
contractors know what is to be
done, when it is to be done, and
who is to do it, but up to date
the public has not been taken
into the confidence of either the
company or the contractors.
Papers along the proposed line
are indulging in cheerful statements relative to the starting of
operations, based upon rumor,
and picking up crumbs of comfort from other sources. Yet
nothing real, substantial and
definite is known up to the hour
of Writing. The situation is
most encouraging, however, and
what can be gleaned upon the
subject is most cheering. It
looks as though work would commence both at the Brewster and
Oroviile ends about the same
time, different subcontractors
breaking off short stretches of
the construction.
"Friday last W. H. Colquhoun,
of St. Paul, confidential representative of A. Guthrie & Co.,
the contractors who secured the
job, was in Oroviile with a couple
of companions, said to be subcontractors. They drove up from
Brewster. Mr. Colquhoun and
his traveling companions did not
do much riding, as it is said that
the former gentleman, at least,
walked every foot of the way,
inspecting the country along the
line of survey. While here he
approached Jas. Jackson on the
subject of a meat supply, and
that gentleman submitted a bid,
which is to be acted on later.
He also interviewed S. C. Mitchell regarding the securing of
lumber, and although no order
was placed the figures were taken
under advisement. The actions
of the stranger indicated that he
was taking preliminary steps to
house and feed a gang of men,
j and the only need of a gang of
j men up this way would be for
j railroad building' The presence
of this representative of the firm
known to have secured the contract threw considerable fresh
interest into the subject uppermost in everybody's mind, as it
is the strongest evidence that
has come to light that the country is on the eve of something
taking place.
"Mr. Colquhoun touched at Okanogan on his way up, and incorporated in an item recording
the visit is the following from
the Independent :
''' Information was given out
that the only piece of subcontracting let to date is on the
Brewster end, about seven miles.
Capt. Riley, one of the oldest
sub-contractors in the service of
the Great Northern, was awarded the work. The rest of the
work will be subbed out in a few
"The Wenatchee daily World
of the 17th inst,adds the following to the cummulative information that is floating around in
reference to this new railroad
extension :
" 'J. C. O'Brien, foreman for
A. W. Guthrie & Co., the Minneapolis contractors who have secured the contract for the Oroville-Brewster line, was in the
city yesterday and made arrangements with the C. & O. company
for moving its outfit up the river
next Monday. The outfit includes the scrapers, wagons and
a general contractor's outfit. The
foreman stated that it was understood that his company had a
contract for 85 miles, which
means that the road will be built
to Pateros. The Associated
Press despatch, which tells of
the awarding of the contract,
says that it was for 70 miles,
which in that case would take
the road to the mouth of the Okanogan. The owners of Methow
property are hopeful that the
road will be built as far as Pateros. The contract price was
given at $2,000,000, and the foreman states that this company is
given 200 days to complete the
big contract.'"
The happy couple were the recipients of a large number ol
beautiful and appropriate pres-
jnts as well as numerous congratulations, and universal good
They left on the following
morning for Portwilliams, N. S.,
where they will visit Mr. Ilib-
bert's parents for about six weeks-
prior to taking up their residence
in Phoenix. Mrs. Hibbert will
be greatly missed in Penticton;
the place she has occupied in
church, Sunday School and social
circles will be hard to fill. The
Press joins the numerous friends
of Mr. and Mrs. Hibbert in wishing them a long, happy and successful maried life.
Local and Personal
On the evening of Thursday,
Sept. 30, at the home of the
bride's parents, Rev. R. W. Hibbert, formerly of thisirtace, but
now of Phoenix, B. C, and Miss
Hazel Zelika Lancaster, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Lancaster,
were united in marriage by Rev.
A. J. Allen, the members of the
family and some thirty guests
witnessing the ceremony.
The room was neatly and
effectively decorated with red
and white flowers, while a bridal
arch of smilax adorned one corner.
The bridal party entered to the
strains of the wedding march
from Lohengrin, played by Miss
Bessie Thompson. After the
ceremony, Miss Thompson also
played Mendelssohn's wedding
The groom, who looked handsome in a black frock coat, was
supported by Rev. J. J. Nixon,
of Peachland. The bride entering on the arm of her father was
exceedingly pretty in a dress of
white mousselaine silk and bridal
veil, and carried in her hand a
shower boquet of white roses
and carnations. The bridesmaid,
Miss Florence Thompson, was
attired in pale blue Victoria satin
and carried a boquet of pink
geraniums and asparagus fern.
After the solemn words had been
spoken, Mrs. J. A. Brown sang
"O Promise Me."
The guests then sat down to a
dainty supper served by four
girls of the Sunday School choir,
of which Mrs. Hibbert had been

E. O. Delong. of Hedley, and
formerly of Penticton, spent a
day or two in town this week.
He has sold his blacksmithing
tools in his shop here, and was

Mr. Delong expects to move on
to Otter Flat in the Tulameen
this fall. He has no doubt but
that the railroad will be pushed
to that point as soon as it has
been completed to Princeton.
The coal and other valuable
mines in that vicinity, he is assured, will result in the rapid
building up of an exceedingly
important town. The coal is said
to be the best cokeing variety in
the province.
H. H. Gaetz, of Red Deer, Alberta, is in town, having arrived
on Tuesday to inspect his property here. He is exceedingly
well pleased with; the condition
of his peach orchard, he having
lost only one hundred and forty
out of about sixteen hundred
trees by the unusually severe
frosts of last winter. Mr. Gaetz
has unbounded faith in the future
of Penticton. He believes it will
not only be the largest town in
the Okanagan but one of the
largest in the interior of the
province. All those who have
left Penticton, he says, will come
back. He is a strong advocate
of the early installation of water,
sewerage, and electric lighting
systems. With these conveniences, he is certain, the settlement of the place by the well-to-
do class would be rapid.

It is worth while for any person who is interested in land to
take a trip back in the hills to
the east of Penticton. The trail
for about six miles ascends rapidly, after which a plateau country
is reached probably two thousand
feet above Penticton. Here the
country opens out into broad
tree-covered plains, open meadows, or gentle slopes, while
several creeks���tributaries of
Ellis Creek���are crossed.
Most of the timber is rather
small black pine, unfit for lumber
purposes, but straight, almost
limbless, and admirably suited
to the construction of log buildings, corrals and fences. The
ground in patches is light and
stony. In other places it appears
to be free from stones, while the
meadows are of a deep, black,
leaf mould, requiring slight
drainage to make them suitable
for the production of timothy
hay, vegetables, or other farm
As regards climate, there appears to be little signs of frost
so far this season. The night
we camped out, Sept. 27, appeared quite as warm as in Penticton. There is more rain in
.summer and more snow in winter
than in the valley below, and
this would render irrigation unnecessary. The portion of the
year tn which snow lies on the
ground would probably be six
weeks longer than in the valley,
but not so long as in the northwestern provinces. A country
at an altitude of $3500 feet, or
taereabouts, naturally possesses
a clear bracing climate, but
where, as in this case, it is tem-
pjred by the warm winds that
modify the temperature of the
whole country, the cold is not
excessive. .
The country should be admirably suited to stock raising, and,
ti further accentuate this, a
ready market exists right at
hand in the fruit growing sections of the Okanagan Valley.
The lands belong to the  Can-'
a Man Pacific Railway Co., being,
put of the Columbia and Western land grant, but they may be
bought   at  a    very   reasonable
figure and on satisfactory terms.
During: the past two weeks we have been busy
placing in stock new fall goods in all the different
lines we carry.   We mention a few of the

An Incandescent Kerosene Mantle Lamp
We have just received the new 1909 "Aladdin," the latest in lamps.
It is an incandescent kerosene mantle lamp, burning coal oil and producing at the cheapest cost the most brilliant uniform Tight and is an ideal
illuminant for stores, offices and ho'nes. To say we are pleased with
this beautiful lamp is to express our satisfaction very mildly. The lamp
which is of simple construction, differs little from an ordinary coal oil
lamp but the result of the mantle and generator which turns the coal oil
into a gas throwing a light of twenty-fold power at a minimum cost is a
great stride towards perfection combined with economy.
Made in Table. Store, Hanging, and Bracket Lamp styles.

Local Option.
There will  be a local  option
I convention in Vernon on the 26th
'of this month.   The object,   we
| presume, will be to arouse interest in the local option campaign
now taking place in British Columbia and to formulate plans for
the  organization   and  thorough
[campaigning  of   the   province.
The provincial  government has
promised to give the electors of
British Columbia a chance to say
by plebiscite whether they  want
a local option law or not, but the
government   has   not   pledged
itself to pass such a law should
the plebiscite show it to  be desire I.    It may do so, but it may
not, and the temperance element
of the province  will  have little
faith in the proposition until the
premier has pledged the govern-
1 ment to carry out the will of the
majority.     We have  no doubts
but   that,   if   the   premier   be

D. D. Mann, vice-president of
the Canadian Northern Railway,
has been giving accounts of his
first experiences in the Vest,
and the progress the country hap
made in the past thirty years.
Last Tuesday he said in an interview : "Thirty years ago to-day,
II arrived in Winnipeg on a flat-
boat. There was at that time
not o mile of railroad in Canada
from the Red River to the Pacific
Ocean, and the people of the
western plains were importing
their flour from the United
States. The entire population of
Canada westward from Winnipeg
to the Pacific was not more than
100,000. To-day there are one
and a quarter millions of people
in that territory, and one hundred million b'��� nels of wheat
are being handled on railroads
wh   e total mileage is nearly 10,-
000 miles. It seems wonderful
that such great progrers should
have betm made in t'le short
space of thirty years. Canada
has without doubt grown faster
than did the western states during a like period.
"At that time, 1879," continued Mr. Mann, "I was working
on a construction contract for
the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which was being built by government aid out into the far west,
1 started my railroad career by
taking contacts to build stretches of the line. In 1879 passengers t^ Winnipeg iournc/ed by
boat from St. Vincent. The C.
P. R. hr.d bf,ri surveyed from
Emerson to St. Boniface, across
the river from what is now the
thriving metropolis of the Canadian middle west. Then, in
1896, or thirteen years ago,
William Mackenzie and myself
secured a short strip of line west
of Winnipeg, and to-day we have
3,000 miles of steam road in the
western provinces alone. Yesterday our cars handled 412,000
bushels of wheat. "���Commercial,

Mrs. Robinson's Lectures.
Thr series of lectures given by
Mrs. A. T. Robinson under the
auspices of Val local W. C. T. U.
on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday evenings wera
very well attended though not so
well as the character of the
lectures warranted. Mrs. Robinson is a lecturer of the highest
order, eloquent and instructive, and she never fails to electrify her audiences. Her strong
plea for temperance and moral
reform ha made her a power to
be reckoned with in the politics
of British Columbia. She has
aroused the people to such an extent that they are now in dead
earnest in their demands for a
local option law from the provincial legislature. A local option
law British Columbia must have,
and will have, even if party
must be placed beneath principle
to get it.

Not quite a mile above the northern
