Carry's Party from West Hastening Down Trout Creek.
R. A. Henderson, C. E., and
party, left Wednesday morning
for Keremeos where they will
take train to their homes at
Grand Forks, having completed
the location of the old railway
survey line between Midway and
For the past three weeks the
party, comprising about a dozen
men, have been rushing work on
the portion of line between Carmi
and Penticton, and while some
of the men have been in town
for supplies every day or two,
the most profound secrecy has
been observed as to its operations. However, a number of
suggestions have leaked out,
among them being that it is not
improbable that the party, in increased numbers, may be back
within a month, and that next
summer Penticton will be the
base of extensive operations.
Chief Henderson intimated to
one person in conversation that
Penticton would yet be a large
city. Before the party left they
made arrangements for the storing of their outfit, and also made
enquiries as to the cost of supplies.
It is understood that a one per
cent, grade has been secured,
the most difficult portion of the
rout 3 being the descent from the
divide near the head of Ellis
creek to Penticton. In order to
make the grade, a distance of
seventy miles is traversed between Carmi and Penticton,
which are situate only twenty-
one miles apart. Descending
Ellis creek to near Campbell &
Kay's sawmill, the survey line
turns up Penticton creek, passing
around the mountain and emerging through the draw at C. F.
Randolph's place. It then runs
south along the west side of the
mountain, and crosses Penticton
creek near H. L. DeBeck's farm,
from which point it gradually
descends to the flat.
The party under H. E. C. Carry
which has been working all summer between Nicola and Okanagan Lake are now reported pushing their survey down Trout
c:eek, and may be expected to
arrive in Penticton any day.

with interest.

Vernon Police Protect Sharpers.
Receive Money; Then Send Letter
of Introduction to Kelowna
On Monday Provincial Constable Tooth received a despatch
from the Provincial Constable at
Kelowna to arrest two alleged
thieves and pickpockets en rout<
from Vernon where they had
been present at the Vernon Exhibition. Accordingly, when the
Str. Okanagan arrived the two
men were promptly taken in
charge. They had not been allowed to land at Kelowna, but
after the steamer left that point
a charge of stealing a jack-knife
at Vernon had been made, in
consequence of which came the
message to make the arrest.
The two men, who were traveling under the names Stanley and
Barnett, expressed their willingness to be taken back to Kelowna
or Vernon. The constable, therefore, in compliance with orders
received that evening, conducted
them to Kelowna on the following morning. After a thorough
investigation, it was found that
there was no evidence to incriminate them, and they were in
consequence released at Penticton that evening.
While here Stanley and Barnett unfolded a tale to a representative of the Press, which,
if true, and there seems no reason to doubt their story, should
result in a general house-cleaning
in the city police department at
Vernon. They stated that about
twenty sharpers from St. Paul
and other eastern American cities
conducted about ten gambling
devices upon the grounds at the
Vernon Exhibition. The men,
together with two others, known
as Irish Mike and McJimsey, ran
one affair in which, according to
their explanation, it was impossible for the player to win if the
operator did not wish him to.
All the games were allowed to
run for the first day, after
which, as a result of public opinion, all closed with the exception
of the one run by the four named.
They cleaned up about six hundred dollars and then a quarrel
started about the division of the
spoils. Stanley and Barnett
were, they state, done out of
their share, and Police Edwards
and Night Watchman Bailey took
the part of Irish Mike. They
had even encouraged the game,
so said the informers, and had
permitted it, not only upon the
grounds, but upon the street of
the city in the evening and later
in the Okanagan Hotel. Barnett
said that he, personally, had
given Night Watchman Bailey
seven dollars and a half, and the
other three had made the sum
up to about twenty-five dollars.
He also said that he had seen
Irish Mike pass Police Edwards
money, and that, in all, Edwards
had received between ninety and
one hundred dollars. Irish Mike
and special constable Greggs
drove to Kelowna on Monday to
take in the exhibition at that
place and Irish Mike bore with
him a letter addressed to Constable Kitson, of Kelowna, and
signed by Police Edwards. The
letter said that any favor show n
to Irish Mike would be appreciated, as he was a gentleman.
Police Kitson, we were informed,
has this letter in his possession.
The same set of gambling
booths were opened at Kelowna,
but were promptly closed by the
Provincial Constable; and the
citizens of that city were saved
at least two thousand dollars.
Stanley and Barnett claim that
the total receipts of all the stands
at Vernon would be between
three and five thousand dollars.

To the Editor nf Tim-: PENTICTON Pnrcss:
Dear Sir,���I noticed in tic
last issue of the Press four different applications to lease parts
of the lake foreshore. Since th(
first notice to apply for a lease
appeared in your columns about
a month ago I have been waitinj
to see if the Board of Trade oi
other responsible body were likely to take the matter up.
Nearly everyone I have sp'oker
to on the subject seemed to re
gard the matter in a rather non-
chalent sort of way or expresser'
the opinion that somebody ough
to do something and then evidently dismissed the subject from
their minds as a thing that die
not concern them.
Very few of our people have
yet realized what these applications mean and I think it is higr
time that their attention was
drawn to the fact that the eye?
of the land grabber are turned
on our splendid stretch of bead
which all admit is the one greal
attraction Penticton at present
possesses over other lake towns.
Now what is going to happen ii
these leases are granted ? Only
this, that before next summei
the only public part of the lakf
shore will be the street ends, all
the rest will most probably be
fenced in with barbed wire
fences put up by such public
spirited citizens as the four
gentlemen who are at present
making application to lease the
lake front from the mouth oi
Penticton Creek nearly to Main
There is another aspect to this
question, and that is: What dc
these applicants intend doing
when the Okanagan. river is
dredged and the lake lowered ':
I take it for granted that thej
will then apply for more foreshore rights and so on ad libitum
Before concluding I would like
t') suggest that a petition signet!
by all who are interested in the
future welfare of the town bt
forwarded through one of OUl
members to the Minister of Land.1
and Works asking him to refust
the applications for leases, and
so save the beach and foreshore
for the public, especially the
Trusting you will be able to
find space for this letter in your
next issue.
I am yours very sincerely.

the sudden com motion under tlie roof
Inn] already attracted tlie young officer Stooping, he cuugllt a glimpse of
ISqunw Charley.
"Oh. there you are!" he exclaimed
nnd motioned for him to come forth.
When the Indian appeared, tbe deerskin in his linns. Lieutenant Fraser
pointed toward Hie entrance. "Yon

In the sign language.
Sipiaw Charley moved slowly along
with him. No one was In sight in the
IlicloHure���no one deemed even to he
looking on. But. opposite Brown
Mink's lodge, the old woman dashed
out, seized the hide with a scream of
rage nnd dashed hack again. The
next moment Charley passed through
the sliding panel and took up his
march to headtiuarters.
"oo this Is your last wild pet, eh.
Robert?" said Colonel Cummiugs ns
they eutered. He backed up to his
stove and surveyed Squaw Charley
good naturedly. "Let me see, now.
You've run the scale from a devil's
darning needle to a baby wolf. Next
thing, I supj'ose. you'll be introducing
us to a youngish rattlesnake."
Lieutenant Fraser rumpled his hair
sheepishly. "But you ought to see the
way they're treating him ��� banging
him around as if he were a dog."
"H'm.     He   certainly   doesn't   look
"They work him to death, colonel."
The commanding officer laughed.  "A
redskin  working must be a sight for
sore eyes."
"But they don't feed him, sir."
The  outcast,   wrapped   close  in  his
blanket   lifted   his   pinched   face   to
"How'd It happen I didn't notice this '
fellow   during   the   march?"   inquired
the colonel, a trifle suspiciously.
"He   was   with   the   squaws   when
there was anything to do.  but when
we were on the move he fell to the
"Didn't try to get away?"
"No.   .lust straggled along."
"Ah!    Do you know whether or not
be took part in tbe fight the day we
captured them?"
At tbe question a swift change came
over Squaw Charley. He retreated a
little and bent his head until his chin
rested  upon   his  breast
Lieutenant Fraser threw out his arm
in mute reply. No feathers, no paint,
no gaudy shirt or bonnet marked the
Indian as a warrior.
The elder man approached the silent,
shrinking figure not unkindly. "Aud
what do you want me to do for him,
Robert'.'" he asked.
Lieutenant Fraser sprang forward
eagerly, his face shining. "He's so
quiet and willing, sir���so ready to do
anything he's told. I'd be grateful if
you thought you could trust him outside tbe stockade. He could get tbe
odds and ends from tlie bachelor's
"I'll be hanged. Robert!" cried his
superior, annoyed. "Most men. just
out of West Point, have an eye to
killing redskins, not coddling 'em."
The other crimsoned. "I'm sorry
you look at It that way. colonel," he
said. "I'm ready to punish or kill in
the case of bad ones. But���you'll pardon my saying It���I don't Fee that It's

Squaw Charley raised his bead and
cblfted timidly from foot to foot
"Well, Robert," said Colonel Cummiugs quietly, "you still have tbe eastern view of tbe Indian question. However, let me ask you this: Hns this
man n story, and what is it? For all
you know, he may deserve being
'bunged around.'"
Lleutenuut Fraser was shaking his
head In answer when swift came one
from the pariah. Le searched In his
bosom, under tbe t:itt. red waist, drew
out the rag bound pit), tr nnd bunded
It to the commanding officer.
Very carefully the latter read it, bis
interest growing with every lint;.
Finally, giving It over to the lleutenuut, be smiled ut Squaw Charley.
"Tbat tells the tale," he snld. "I
knew the man that wrote that when 1
was with Sibley in Minnesota, the
summer after the massacre. He's a
man that writes the truth. He talks
the truth, too. and I wish I bad him
here now. so that he could interpret
for me."
"Why. sir," exclaimed the younger
men, "it says this chap knows Eng
"By nil tlie gods!   Of course it does.
Robert. I'll make him my Interpreter."
Tbe colonel strode up ami down in his
excitement,   pausing only   to  contend
with   the  other  for  the  paper.    "Red
Moon." lie said at last, motioning the
pariah forward, "do you know what I
am saying to you?"
Squaw Charley nodded.
"Good,    good!    This    is    fortunate.
Now  we can  have a  talk   with  these
Sioux."     He    addressed    the    iudiau !
again.    "And you speak  English?" he
There was a second grave nod.
"You   shall   be   my   interpreter,   Red
Moon.     You   shall   have   a   log  house
near the scouts, und the great father
ut   Washington    will   pay   yon.     You
shnll have double rations for yourself
and your squaw, nnd more if you have '
papooses.    What do you sny to that?"
Squaw Charley had not taken bis
eyes from the other's face for an Instant while he was talking. Now, for
answer, be shook his bead slowly and
Siidly front side to side.
"Dou't want to'.'" cried the colonel.
"I'll tell you. sir." interposed Lieu-
teunut Fraser, studying the paper, "I
don't believe he ever speaks. You'll
notice that It snys here, 'lint lie has
never.' I can't be sure, tint 1 think
the next word Is 'spoken.'".
"Vow of silence'.'"
"Something of the kind. Cnptaln
Oliver has been telling me nbout these
bucks that nre degraded, und I don't
believe thnt. even If this fellow spoke,
the rest of the tribe would treat with
ns through him."
"That's probably true."
"They've made u stpiaw of him. sir."
Deep humiliation instantly showed
lu the pariah's eyes and posture. He
looked nt Lieutenant Fraser imploringly and drew his blanket still more
closely nbout him. Then, ns with a
sign be wns bidden to put it off. be
suddenly let it drop to the floor.
"Great Scott!' cried the colonel.
"He's dressed like one!"
"Ills punishment, sir And he won't
be taken back us n warrior till be does
some big deed."
"Whnt does thnt paper say again?
'Out of the weakness of the flesh be
wept under the tortures of the sun
dance.' So that's the cause of his trouble! What did they do to you. Red
To reply Squaw Charley quickly invested himself of the calico waist and
turned nbout. And Colonel Cummings,
uttering his horror, traced with tender
finger the ragged, ghastly scums that
lined the pnrinh's back.
"Muscles torn loose," he said. "Not
old wounds either." As Squaw Charley resumed waist and blanket he looked on pityingly.
"I'll give him his freedom," he said
when the outcast stood ready to depart. "He can come nnd go in the post
as he likes. Robert, see that the adjutant understands my order. Now
let him get something to eat in the
When Squaw Charley's hunger hnd
dlsappenred before the enforced and
rather nervous generosity of Colonel
Cummings' black cook and Lieutenant
Fraser hnd left him he hurried away
from headquarters. Making his way
to tbe sentry line north of Branuon, he
gathered firewood along the Missouri
until dark.
The lantern hnd been out for an
hour in the cottonwood shack. Father
and daughters were asleep. But at
the end of that time Dallas was suddenly awakened by the sound of loud
stamping and rending in the lean-to.
Ben and Betty, roused by the fear of
something, were plunging and pulling
back on their halter ropes. Startled,
her heart beating wildly, tbe elder girl
crept softly to the warped door.
Her father and sister still slept, undisturbed by tbe noise in the stable,
which now quieted as abruptly as it
had begun. Dallas heard the team
begin to feed ngnln. And from outside
tbe shack there came only a faint rustle. Was it the uncovered meadow
grass of the eaves as the wind brushed
gently through it or the whisper of
moccasins on snow?
Lnter. when Squnw Charley entered
the sliding panel of the stocknde, he
crept noiselessly toward the shingle
roof. But he wns not to gain it unseen.
Afruid-of-n-Fnwn, who hnd been looking nbout for him, bulled him savagely as he nenred,

quakes like nu uspen!"
Squaw Charley wus Indeed trembling, but only with the cold, and
soon, under the shingle roof, the snuggling dogs would warm him. Blows
aud abuse counted nothing this night.
He wns fed, freedom was his, and
he had puid a debt of gratitude.

"Ah reckon," he replied, but not
And so once more preparations for
a trip were made. That night, when
all was ready nnd Dallas and her father, having given the team a late
feed, were leaving the stable together,
she spoke to him of ber sister.
"There's just one thing that worried
me about your leaving," she snid. "I
don't know if you've noticed it or not,
but Marylyn don't seem to be feeling

"No, no," he said, "she favors me,

oats a leetle, thet's all."
The developments of the next morning swept every thought from Dallas'
mind save those concerning the journey. For when it came time to harness the mules she found that Ben bad
unaccountably gone lame. Whether
bis mate bad kicked him or whether
he had sprained a leg while exercising
the previous afternoon she did not
know. But it was plain that, so far as
be went, the miles between quarter
section and land office were impossible. At once Dallas suggested tbat

the mule was put before the sleigh.
Failure resulted. Though both Dallas
and her father alternately coaxed and
scolded. Betty, with characteristic
stubbornness, refused to budge a rod
from the lean-to without Ben.
Dallas was In despair. "She won't
go; she won't go," she said. "We've
got to think of some other way."
"Yestiddy," observed the section

Dallas knew that the trip to tho land

unlikely, some weeks having passed
since his Inst visit. Undoubtedly were

"Whnt c'n he do?" retorted her fa-
!her. "Far 's him 's gitting a team 's
concerned, we might 's well look fet

Her determination to ask advice of
(he pariah was a natural one. The
morning that succeeded the night of
the mules' terror she had awakened to
2nd a reassuring explanation for theii
fear. In tbe growing light, ns the
trumpet sounded reveille from the fort,
she sprang up nnd looked out expectantly. On the top of a drift in front
of the door wns a bundle of sticks! A
hard crust hnd formed during the
night, nnd moccasin tracks lending up

"That poor Indian!" she hnd exclaimed in grateful relief.

And ns bringing his offering be crossed the snow softly and approached,
the terrified mules again announced
his coming, nnd she balled him.
"Come on, come near," she had called.    "I want t.i see you."

At the very moment when Dallas decided to confide in him Squaw Charley was not unmindful of her. Where

Mr. Gouzee, of the advisory
board of the Belgian Syndicates,
arrived in Penticton on Saturday
accompanied Mr. W. T. Shatford. The following day was
spent in an examination of Penticton and its orchards. The
Belgian Syndicates have their
head office at Antwerp and have
been investing largely in Canada
having expended some $3,000,000
in the purchase of wheat lands
in the Northwest. They have
also purchased tlie O'Keefe and
Oreenhow ranches near Vernon
and large tracts of land near
Kelowna all of which they purpose irrigating and sub-dividing.
Mr. R. Salmon Backhouse, of
London, Eng., and Mr. Alfred
Symes, of Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex, Eng., capatalists and members of the London (Eng.) Stock
Exchange, were the guests of
Mr. W. T. Shatford at "The
Ranche" on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. They are
visiting: Western Canada for the
first time and have invested
largely in Canadian securities.
They state that British investors
are now more favorably inclined
towards Canadian investments
than those of foreign countries
and that there will be a large
amount of British capital available for legitimate Canadian enterprise. Both gentlemen were
vary favorably impressed with
tie Okanagan and expect to re-
tarn for a more detailed examination.
The Cannery.
The Southern Okanagan Canning Co., since the new cooker
was installed, is turning out on
an average about nine hundred
cans daily, the largest output for
one day being twelve hundred
cans on Saturday, the 19th inst.
The cost of production so far this
season, according to information
furnished by the Secretary, ha?
been $1,612.20, while the canned
goods produced are worth $1,-
934.40 at the wharf. This gives-
a net profit of twenty-three per
cent, which is certainly very
According to those conversant
with canning affairs, a cannery
should be in a position to put up
from five to ten thousand cans
daily; and an effort will be made
to interest sufficient capital to
install a steam plant of such
dimensions next season. This
season the company has been
seriously handicapped for lack of
funds to cope satisfactorily with
the situation. It is stated that
enough fruit could be secured
from Summerland alone to supply the cannery for a daily output of ten thousand cans. This
will give an idea of the immense ]
amount of business that may be j
secured with very little effort.
As to finding a market for the i
produce, there is no further room ;
for doubt. The secretary of the
company spent one or two days
on the road looking up orders,
when it was ascertained that the
entire output for this season
could be disposed of in Vernon
alone, if desired. Although, at
best, the entire output this year
will not exceed three cars, there
have been requests from Victoria
for three cars, from the Vernon
Fruit Co. for two cars and over
if possible, from a Vancouver
firm for a car of the best that
could be put up to go to New
Zealand as a sample of Okanagan
produce. Besides these two cars
have been sold at various local
points in the Okanagan and Similkameen.
With the small plant now in
use, this year's operations are
much in the way of an experiment, but it must be admitted
that the outlook is very hopeful,
