PENTICTON,
INSPECT RAILWAY SURVEY
C. P. R. Officials will Give Good
Report re Nicola-Penticton.
A trio of C. P. R. officials arrived in Penticton on Thursday
evening, havind driven in from
Coutlee via the Similkameen. It
comprised Mr. R. Marpole, general executive assistant, Mr. H.
J. Cambie, consulting engineer,
and Mr. H. E. Carry, the engineer who during the past summer had charge of the survey
party which ran the line between
Nicola and Penticton.
The object of the trip was to
inspect the line so that a report
as to its feasibility might be sent
to headquarters. An excellent
grade, it was learned, has been
secured between the two points,
quite equal to the grade on the
main line of the C. P. R. It is
the desire of the company to secure a shorter route from the
coast to the Kootenay. The section lying between Penticton
and Midway has not yet been inspected. This will doubtless
present the greatest difficulties.
The party drove to Summerland
on Friday morning to inspect
the portion of line between Penticton and Trout Creek, returning to Penticton by the Str. Okanagan in the evening.
Aquatic Association.
The executive of the Aquatic
Association met Tuesday night
to discuss several items of business. The first requiring settlement was the date upon which
the annual sports should be held,
and July 1st was fixed upon, it
being the only public holiday
during the warm weather.
Mr. H. Murk met the executive and explained a proposition
relative to certain foreshore
rights. He offered to lease thirty
feet of foreshore at his property
dn Forbes St. and a block of land
30x100 ft. with entrance privi-
ledges, to the Association on condition that a boat house be
erected. If the Association put
up a building worth $1,500 he
promised to deed them the property. A committee was appointed to look over the site and report.
The question of a constitution
and by-laws next came up and
was placed in the hands of a
committee, which will draft a
sat of rules for the future guidance of the institution.
A communication from a point
up the lake with reference to the
adoption of certain classes of
boats for the races, and suggesting that war canoes be introduced, was read. The secretary
was instructed to reply to the
effect that this Association approved of the idea and would cooperate in any endeavor to further the interest in water sports.
Board of Trade.
Last Saturday evening a special meeting of the Board of Trade
was called to discuss the steamship service on Okanagan Lake,
and deal with other questions of
importance. After some exchanging of ideas, it was decided
I to co-operate with Kelowna and
'Peachland in forwarding resolutions, requesting that the daily
service be resumed, to the Postmaster General, the Railway
Commission, and Capt. .). C
Gore, Supt. of Lake and River
Navigation for the C. P. R. in B.
C.
A number of resolutions which
had been drafted by the Associated Board of Trade of the Okanagan in its recent session at
Vernon were heartily endorsed.
The resolutions, four in number,
were, "Re the changing of the
name of Sicamous Junction to
Okanagan Junction," "Re the
advertising of British Columbia
in the fruit sections of the United
States by the provincial government," "Re the establishment
of an experimental farm in the
Okanagan," and "Re the establishment of an agricultural college in the Okanagan." It was
decided to defer the question of
uniting with, the Associated
Board until the annual meeting
of the Penticton Board, which
takes place in January.
A resolution was also forwarded to the Department of Public
Works at Ottawa requesting the
continuation of the government
telegraph line from Kelowna to
Penticton.
Another important matter re
ceived consideration, but was not
acted upon. There is a constant
damand for Board of Trade pamphlets descriptive of Penticton,
but so far the finances of the
Board have not been in shape to
have any printed. If all those
who joined the Board had paid
their dues, there would be plenty
of money to pay for pamphlets,
or to do any other desired advertising of the place. As a matter
of fact, out of some fifty persons
who signed their names to* the
application to have a Board organized, only about a dozen have
paid their dues. Perhaps those
persons are not aware that the
Board, being incorporated under
a charter from the Dominion
government, can collect in court,
if necessary, the fee of five dollars per year from all who put
their names to the application or
who have since joined. No action
will be taken until the annual
meeting, but in. view of the extreme importance of having a
live, thriving Board of Trade,
and the necessity for the better
advertising of Penticton, some
steps will doubtless be taken to
induce old members to pay up.
Will Drive Over  Route  of Surveyed Line to Penticton.
Vancouver, Nov. 14. An inspection to be made next week
by C. P. R. officials of the route
which was last summer surveyed
between Coutlee and Penticton
I is looked upon in some quarters
as being significant of a possible
start of construction on this line
(luring the coming year.
11 was learned to-day that Mr.
R, Marpole, general executive
assistant of the ('. P. R., will
leave next Monday to go over
1 the route in company with Mr.
| H. J. Cambie, consulting engineer, and Mr. H. E. Carry, the
engineer who directed the survey work last, summer. This
surver was started in April, and
lasted till the close of October,
the distance covered being in the
neighborhood of 180 miles.
Messrs. Marpole, Cambie and
Carry will proceed from Vancouver to Coutlee on the Spences
Bridge branch line, and from
there they will drive over the
entire distance to Penticton, near
the foot of Okanagan lake.
The exact route of the line is
of course a secret, but it is generally known that the Coldwater
river will be followed for some
distance south of Coutlee, and
that the line will pass quite close
to Summerland, on Okanagan
Lake.
The inspection of the route, on
which it is said exceptionally fine
grades have been secured, will
occupy about a week's time.

B.C.
To Link Coast and Boundary.
The Calgary Herald says: The
C. P. R. has just completed a
preliminary survey of the route
which the extension of the
Spence's Bridge-Nicola line may
take from Nicola to Penticton.
Ultimately the lh. i will be continued from Penticton to Midway
where it will link up with the
Columbia & Western railway,
finally furnishing the C. P. R. a
line from Vancouver to the Boundary country.
Whether the C. P. R. or G. N.
railways will be the first to connect the Kootenay country with
the coast is a matter of considerable speculation. The roads have
started construction from opposite ends, the C. P. R. from
Spence's Bridge and the G. N.
R. from Midway, and both are
surveying and building a little
more road all the time.

On Saturday last a football
game was played here between
the Summerland college team
and the local aggregation, the
former team winning by a score
of 2���1. The visiting team
played a fair game in some particulars, but fell down completely in their shooting. They
pounded away continually with
their shots but did not bother
the Penticton goal man a great
deal, seeing that they went
everywhere except in the direction of the goal. The local work,
as a team, was poor, but there
was some good individual playing. Rowe played a fine game
at back. Foster and Wilson, in
the forward line, and Coulter, in
goal, were solid men. Gibbons
made a few splendid runs down
the field with the ball but, not
being supported, the sphere
speedily returned to the Penticton end of the field.
While the score was against
Penticton, and would have been
much greater had the College
boys been able to shoot, it should
be explained in justice to the
local team that a number of the
strong men who have been holding a place on the team were unable to be on the field. In the
lirst half Penticton played a man
short, and in the second took a
man from the side lines to fill
up the number. It is unfortunate that the best men cannot
be secured when a game is played
here, for not only does it. give
outsiders an inaccurate idea of
the strength of our team, but it
knocks the enthusiasm out of the
players themselves.

Two years ago a gentleman
from Winnipeg made a proposition to the Penticton Board of

that he should by the first of the I the present week with friends in

as to the number of lights they j Grand Forks,
should take, it being optional to
everybody whether they used
the light or not, and he guaranteed to furnish light as cheaply
as any municipally owned plant
in the district. He asked no
concessions except one acre of
land upon which to erect his
plant, and that the Board of
Trade should guarantee that
when the place became incorporated it would use its influence
with the council to secure him a
tan year's franchise, the franchise merely to stipulate thai
should the municpality determine
t) put in a municipal lighting

Under such an arrangement,

CHAPTEIt XVI.
ELL, captain?" It was partly a greeting full of relief,
partly an eager Inquiry, as
Colonel Cummings came hurrying out of his library to meet Oliver
In the entry.
The latter straightened a little, but
hesitated deprecatingly before taking
the colonel's hand. "I've nothing to
report but failure, sir," he said.
The stlugiug wind that had blown
'the command home iuto barracks and
scourged the humped shoulders of tbe
men and the thin flanks of their mounts
had cut the flesh over the captain's
high cheek hones until It was red and
raw. The lower part of his face was
hidden under a growth that matched
his drooping mustache. On his fore-
bead and about his eyes the skin was
'a dark sallow, marked by a lattice of
deep lines���Hues of worry and weariness.
"Nothing to report but failure," he
repeated, and let the orderly pull off his
stiffened overcoat
"The troop?" asked Colonel Cummings anxiously.
"All safe." The other hnng his cap
on a nail, his belt upon his overcoat.
"Thank heaven! That storm-1 was
afraid.    Where did it catch you?"
"On   the   Knife.     We  put   up  with
'some half breeds.   It was hard on the
horses, hut a rest for the men."
,   The colonel led the way Into the II-
'brary.
j On his entrance a figure in the dusk
behind the stove sprang up with a
'questioning cry. It was young Jamie-
Bon.
! "Easy. easy, for God's sake!" begged
.the captain. lie put out one uriu as If
'to ward off a blow.
j .lamieson brought up. He saw the
look of defeat in Oliver's bloodshot
leyes, and his voice quaked, bis body
Shuddered In mortal terror of what he
'was to hear.
i "It's bad news, but not as bad as It
might lie." began the captain. Colonel
Cummings offered him a chair. He
'dropped Into It. "It Is said that your
mother and sister are alive, and will
be delivered up to-us In the spring, provided there are no executions here.
'But���I didn't see them, aud I don't
know where they are."
, .lamieson coughed down a heartbroken protest and. as If stunned, tottered
weakly toward the stove.
Colonel Cummings knotted his bands
together. "Where's Matthews?" ho
nsked.
Me wni answered by the slamming

lerpjeter'a salute
With Matthews seated on the army
cot and the commanding officer pacing
to and fro. Captain Oliver made his report. He stood at the window, his
arms folded, bis eyes following his superior.
"We   located   the   camp   easily."   he
said.    "The   directions   given   by   the
hostages were exact.   But that is about
be  only  thing that  did  come easily.
The rest was all procrastination.
"At noon on  the tenth dav out  we
<j'V abend of us on n ridge a single tubal!. 1 selected four men to make a
swift detour, thinking that perhaps
they would discover a hunting part}
just over the crest But the slope lie
yond was unoccupied, and there were
only the marks of one pair of moooa-
I'ts. 1 concluded that the solitary
brave was scouting, and I was right.
"A few miles farther we sighted a
half do/.en Indians. They were watching us  from  a   hill.     I   called  a  halt.
Then I took two men and Mr. Matthews and made forward.    We carried
i truce fhiR. They let us come within
talking distance. They knew. I am
sure, why we were there, hut they ask
.���tl no questions-just told ns that the
command was expected to advance no
farther than a grove tbat lay a little
ahead, to nnr right.    I assented to that
ind said I wished a conference with
Veil-  head  chief     They   promised   me
111  answer Inter on  nnd  at once  with
Irew to a rise a mile behind. There
they  stayed  until,  after a  careful  re-
���otinolter, we entered the grove.
"Lnte that afternoon  Mr.  Matthews
ind I again rode forward to speak to a
trio of warriors. One of them, a big.
bony fellow in a splendid bonnet, asked what we wanted. The Interpreter
told him. The Indian said that the
head chief was very sick and that he
could not lenve his lodge. He told us
we might accompany them to the village, which lay a few miles farther up.
Of course I rejected the proposal.
"Well. I saw there wus no use to
haggle In that fashion. I ordered the
interpreter to go into particulars. He
proceeded to state your terms."
At this point in tbe narrative Colonel
Cummings stood still. Captain Oliver
advanced toward him a step and met
his eyes In a curious, helpless way.
"It was queer." he continued, "but
what Mr. Matthews told them didn't
seem to scare tbem any."
"Oh. it didn't!" cried the colonel
angrily and once more began to pace.
"No. tbey grinned at him and chattered together. Then they rode away.
When dark came ou. fearing treachery,
we left the grove for a sheltered place
farther down. Our scouts then set ont
for the Indian village, going across the
river and far around to the right. On
their return they said thnt the Sioux
camp numbered several hundred wig
warns, while just above was a village
of dog soldiers.
"The night passed quietly. In the
morning a single brave came riding toward us. He stopped beyond rifle
reach. 1 sent the Interpreter out. He
returned to say that the chief promised
htm fair treatment if he would come
nlone. I took it tbat the camp was
anxious for a little entertainment and
that one white was to furnish it. 1
didn't consider this second proposal
a minute. It was worse than foolish.
I thought But"���he looked toward
the cot���"Mr. Matthews didn't agree
with me. He went. It was a magnificent bit of courage, sir."
The colonel wheeled. "By Jupiter!"
he exclaimed. "You did that?"
Matthews smiled aud crossed his legs
awkwardly. "Oh. It wa'n't nothiu',"
he said, forbearing to glance up. "I
savvy Injuns, you know. 1���I wns
willin' to take the chances."
Colonel Cummings looked down. After n moment and without changing the
position of his body be turned his face
slowly in Oliver's direction. The eyes
of the two officers met and flashed
messages of doubt.
When the commanding officer looked
at the interpreter again it wns ou his
lips to say. "But you were afraid to
enter the stockade with me." He
checked himself, however, nnd instead
reached for Matthews' hand. "It was
a magnificent bit of courage." he
agreed.    "Tell us what happened."
Matthews fingered the blanket on the
cot. "1 seen the chief," he said, "and
told him what you told me to tell him.
When I got it all out he says to me:
'The white women ain't here. Tbey'r<,
with tlie Wyomin' band, und the Wyo
miu' bund's up in Cuuada. Now,' he
Buys, 'tlie band 'II come south In the
spring. So tell Colonel Cummin's If
he do no hangln' I'll send the white
women home then.' "
A low groan came from behind the
etove. Young .lamieson came out his
features distorted with grief nnd shining with tears. "Think of It! Think
of It! Not till spring.' Are they well?
How nre they treating them?"
"Oh, so so," suld Matthews signified ntly.
Young .lamieson understood. He
went buck to his seat, sobbing with
the hysterical weakness of a sick man.
"He's bungled the business, colonel!"
he said bitterly. "Oh. God, If you hud
only let me go!"
"Yes. yes. my dour boy." answered
the oilier soothingly, "but please re
member that you couldn't have talked
with them. The conference would have
been carried on through Mr. Matthews
just the same."
There was a silence, broken only by
Jnniieson's weeping.
"Is thnt���all?" asked Colonel Cummings at last, addressing himself to
the Interpreter.
"Yes, sir."
Shortly afterward, when he wns
pone, the two officers left the library
for the reception room and discussed
the expedition In low tones.
"I have a feeling, colonel, that our

i'hey were standing at a front window
watching   .Matthews  cross the pai'AtuJ

"The sume thought occurred to me."
"And yet���It doesn't seem possible"���
"Oh. if Bond had only come sooner!"
"Bond!    He here?"
"Yes���just half u day too late."
While   they   were  talking  Matthews
a'as   losing  bis  tow   beard  and   mustache ami a good length of hair.   This
over and his supper eaten, he reappeared   at   headquarters   and   went   wilh
Colonel Cummings to the stockade.
Much to his chagrin he found the
evangelist  there,  ready  to be present
at tbe Interview with the hostages, but
tin- Indians understood his predicament
and accepted the speech he made for
tbe little it was worth It was a speech j
that, repeated by David Bond, set i
Colonel Cuuiuilngs' last suspicion ut
rest
Lounsbury arrived at Fort Brannon
tbe next day. appearing in time for
breakfast Ills early advent, wbleu he
explained away nonchalantly, was the
cause o" s-ome good mitured tensing.
"Sny, Lounsbury," observed oue officer, "I thought you were keeping a
store."
"Oct ont!" he retorted. "I'm down
here to see tbat you fellows do something for the good money Uncle Sam
pays you."
"Why. don't you know?" said Major
Applelon. "John's here to sell the sutler some sandy sugar."
"That's right" agreed the storekeeper. "And I'm going to put up a plant
to make brown sugar out of the Muddy."
Lounsbury could afford lo laugh with
them, not being the only butt of the
Jokers. Eraser suffered, too. for a
tattling private who had spent the
night at Shanty Town let It out lo a
corporal, who told It to a sergeant,
who told It to a cub of a second lieu-
tenant who told It to every officer In i
post with tbe single exception of the
"K. 0.," that Eraser, the good, the discreet, the unimpeachable, had played
poker with Matthews at the Trooper's
Delight from talis to "revelly" and lost
his last dollar.
Tbe tale had leaked out by the hour
of   Lounsbury's   nrrlvr.i.      When   the

It was Lounsbury who  look possession
of tlie note.
storekeeper heard It, together with the
embellishments it carried by reason of
its having so often changed bands, he
first gnve Eraser a grip to show his
gratitude and then sat back and enjoyed the fun. Eraser, sorely tried by
the taunts of bis brother officers, repaid Lounsbu-y with glances of wounded reproof.
"Blame It all, old man," he cried
when he could get a quiet word with
the other, "why didn't you help me
out? You're a nice oue! Letting these
chaps think I'm a sport when you
know"���
But Lounsbury only laughed the
harder aud was among the first to dub
the lieutenant "a sad devil."
The storekeeper did have business
with the sutler, though not the kind
suggested by the major, for after being closeted with that worthy a half
hour Squaw Charley was dispatched to
Ihe Laucasters' with a basket and a
note which read:
Mr.  Evan Lancaster.

of B troop's surplus rations In the way
of beans, butter, bacon, flour, salt, pepper, dried apples, prunes, rice, vinegar,
molasses, etc.. are piling up on my

way at once and at any sacrtflce.. Would
It be possible for you to relieve me of
some of these goods and pay me baelc

hope you can find room for a fable,

the shack he bore au empty basket and

DALLAS LANCASTER.
It was Lounsbury who took possession of the note. lie smiled over it and
put It carefully away lu his Innermost
pocket.
And now there remained one other
thing to do. He dropped Into the bil-
llnrd room and commenced playing, occasionally going to a window that commanded the river. When, nfter a game
or two, he saw a man upproachlng

"Yes?"
"And that whnt I sail before you

"I alu't deef," said Matthews, noncommittal.
"That's all." And Loa usbury went
back to his billiards.
The interpreter continued on to the

CHAPTEB XVII.
THAT year in the northland
winter encroached groedih
upon spring. The latter end
of March the weather did not
moderate. Instead the wide valley became a channel for winds tbat were
weighted with numbing sleet. Then
April returned angrily, bringing cold
rains and blows to check all vegeta
tion.
But April half gone, a tardy Ibuw
set in. The ley covering of the rlyei
split into whirling blocks, the snow
grew soft and bally, the crust rotted
and picked up. Soon the tempering
sun drove the drifts from smith ex
posures, when a freshet coursed down

prairie tilled until they were broad
ponds,   around   which   ihe   migrating
wild   fowl  alighted   wilh  joyous  cries
Now eaves dripped musically, slushy
wagon ruts run like miniature Missouri unil were traveled by horny frogs.
prairie cocks made each dawning
weirdly noisy, and far and near where
showed the welcome green blue eyetl
anemones sprang bravely and tossed
their fuzzy heads in the sharp air.
Throughout this season the shack
hud but one visitor���Squaw Charley, He
brought fuel and once a week a basket
of supplies from "B troop." Occasionally he came swinging a brant by the
neck or carrying a saddle of fresh ven
ison; but. though his manner wns as
friendly ns ever and h'e seemed no less
grateful and devoted, he wns always
strangely worried and distraught. The
evangelist called by once or twice

the bend often on his way to Brannon.
and if be saw a face at a window
waved his ha ml in pleasant greeting,
but be kept to the road.
Since tlie morning of tbe aurora th"
little family had ceased to speak of
him. That silence was neither demanded by tbe section boss nor agreed
upon by the three. On Lancaster's
part It grew out of the sneaking con
sciousness of the ingratitude he did
not regret On tbe part of Marylyn it
arose from two causes���a sense of girlish shame at having confessed her attachment nnd a fear that her father
would discover it. With Dallas, consideration for tbe feelings of her sister
made her shrink from mentioning
Lounsbury. Yet there was another reason, nnd one no less delicate���she, us
well, hnd u secret to guard.
But In the mind of the elder girl the
thought of Marylyn's happiness was
the uppermost. There were dread moments when it Seemed lo her ns if that
happiness were to lie shattered.
During all tbe past weeks Marylyn
had carefully harbored her fancies
about Lounsbury. Certain of tbe calico
covered books on the mantel had no
little part In this. Their stories of undying affection���of bold men. lorh
maidens and the cruel villains who
gloried in severing them���helped her to
fit her iitfle circle inlo proper roles.
She loved anil must crush out her passion. Lounsbury. whom she loved,
had beeu sent away by her fnther, and
she lived up tn the play consistently.
She saw the storekeeper anguished over
Ills banishment: saw depths of meaning in the gootl naluretl salutes he gave
the shack. With herself, she accepted
loneliness us n sign of deeper suffering
She wus tortured by self pity, by the
doubt she had (lung at On Hub, by the
firm belief lhat her heart wus hopeless
ly fettered. Gnzing Iuto u piece of
looking glass that served her for a tnlr
ror. she marked wilh sorrowful pride
her transparent si;in ami lusterless
eyes. She sighed as she watched from
the windows. Patiently she listened
for footsteps, her face half turned to
the door.
And yet what she took so tragically
was nothing but falling health. What
was not n fact the ulght of her admission to Dallas, was almost come to
puss. The few days of great cold und
hunger In Kebrunry. coupled with long
confinement In tbe dirt floored bouse,
were having their effect She was on
the verge of illness.
Lancaster, whenever he noticed her
dejection, was Inclined to pooh pool) it
"She looks as ef she'll jes' been ship
pod." he declared, "nn' is expectln' nn
other In in miu' any mill nit. El' she'd crj
she'tl shore weep leiuou juice." A gill 11
he reckoned that she had picked up
"some notion." Jealous and suspicious
as he was, however, he got uo nearer
the truth.
But Dallas-she was misled far more
than either Marylyu or their father
She fought away from the Idea thai
her sisier might be breaking physical
ly nnd tenderly as a mother yearned
over her. Anxious eyed, she noted the
pallor of the childlike face, the melancholy expression that bad come to be
habitual. She fretted over the spare
ness of the younger girl, who ate only
when she was urged. If. sated with
sleep. Mnryl.vu moved In the night.
Dallas aroused on the instant and hovered beside her.
Al last, thoroughly alarmed, the elder
girl deleimined to follow out the Idea
that had occurred to ber In mid win
ter. What did it mutter how hard nnd
hateful the duty would be? Whnt did
her own hidden feelings matter? She
would appeal to Lounsbury in her sis
tor's behalf.
But time passed without bringing her
tbe opportunity, and it was borne In
upon her finally that Lounsbury meant
to remain away, perhaps until he was
bidden to come. Undaunted, she made
plans to waylay him on the coulee
road. Besting the Sharps across her
arm, she set out, morning or afternoon,
on n long jaunt,
But Lounsbury wus not met On
one such rumble, however, un incident
occurred that was far reaching if not
fatal in its results. She was going
homeward slowly when she saw approaching nn ambulance from Brniinou

The vehicle was rilled with Indies. A
half dozen who were tnlklngand laughing merrily occupied the lengthwise
scuts of the carriage. One sat beside
the driver. Dallas put herself In their

How often she had watched these

their horseback rides, officers attending tbem. or seen them make a rollicking walking parly to the bluff top
And sho had pictured how some day

They could not have heard how her

not blnme her. If they passed her.
they would smile and bow, maybe stop
to speak.
She was all aglow now. The ambulance rolled near. It was closed on
its sides, and tbe women within could
not see her. The woman on the seat,
pretty, slender, daintily clad, did. Dallas leaned forward eagerly, face Hushed, eyes shining.
The woman also leaned forward and
looked Dallas up and down searching-
ly, coldly. Her lips were set In a
sneer. Her eyes frowned. Then the
ambulance bowled smartly along, the
driver catching at n lender with his
whip.
"Who's thnt, Mrs. Cummings?" Tlie
women In the rear of the vehicle were
peering out.
Mrs. Cummings answered over her
shoulder, "Why, it's the Plow Woman,"
There were "Ohs" nnd "Ahs" and

COMMUNICATIONS
I We do not hold ourselves responsible for the
opinions of correspondents.)
To the Editor of Tun PENTICTON Press :
Dear Sir,���Would you permit
me through the columns of your
paper to thank the many friends
through your district who gave
me such a splendid support in
the recent campaign.
I realize that the questions of
Japanese immigration and Better
Terms were responsible for the
strong endorsation of the Conservative side, and I also realize
that throughout the great fruitgrowing districts I received much
assistance from those who considered that the horticultural interests of British Columbia had
not had sufficient attention in the
House of Commons.
The task of defeating a Government candidate in the face of
persistent appeals to support
those who had control of the
national purse strings was not
easy. It is intensely gratifying,
therefore, to find that the majority of the people expressed themselves so strongly for Principle
as against Expediency.
It has not been a personal victory but I may be pardoned for
thanking most deeply the many
friends who worked so loyally
and unselfishly for me during the
campaign.
To the work of the officers and
members of the various Conservative Associations through Yale-
Cariboo the results of the 12th
are chiefly due, but I also recognize that in this election I owe
not a little to those who despite
party ties gave me their support.
It is impossible for me to answer personally all those who
have so kindly written their congratulations, and I trust they
will be good enough to let me
tell them in this way that I deep-
1 / value their good wishes, and
t) assure them that if I fail in
fie performance of my duty as
fieir Member it will not be for
the want of trying earnestly to
do that duty both in the letter
and spirit.
I am, sir,
Yours very truly,
Martin Burrell.

The Presbyterian Ladies' Aid
held a very successful bazaar
Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Steward's Hall was very beautifully decorated with evergreens
for the occasion, and besides the
sale of candies, cakes, garments,
and other useful articles, there
were a number of attractive
features including a fishpond,
where, with a pin for a hook, one
was reminded of his earliest
piscatorial ventures, and a menagerie, where monkeys grinned,
lbns glared, and bears growled
in turn at the observer. Supper
was served the guests, after
which they spent a social evening. The'proceeds amounted to
$160.
A very exciting and disaster-
ous fire took place on Monday
morning last at the palatial home
of Mr. W. Hudson, Hot Air Ave.,
Penticton suburbs. At the cannonade call for help the neighboring bachelors rallied to the
assistance of their brother Bill
and gallantly rescued the British
flag which had graced the pinnacle of his happy abode, ever
announcing to the passer-by his
loyalty to home and king. Mr.
Hudson is fortunate in having
saved the twisted barrels of three
guns, a white waistcoat and a
dress shirt slightly riddled with
bullets. Friends wishing to tender their sympathy to Mr. Hudson may meet him meandering
around the site of his late residence. He wears a kahki suit
and a hopeful smile. ��� (Contributed. )
