C. P. R. May Build Direct from
(From Similkameen Star.)
A big pack train passed through
town on Sunday in charge of Mr.
Guthrie of Nicola, bound for
Hope. The outfit will be used
for packing supplies to a party
of C.P.R. engineers working in
the Coquihalla Pass. It is a
matter of common report that
the President of the C.P.R., Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy, is very
anxious to have an alternative
route for the C. P. R. beginning at Ruby Creek, below
Hope, crossing the Fraser and
following the Coquihalla over
Hope mountains, thence in a
nearly straight line across country to Penticton, thence along
Okanagan Lake to the Landing,
there connecting with the Sicamous branch. This route would
be a great saving in mileage
across continent besides obviating difficult grades and expensive
maintenance for high speed.
This is the route indicated by Sir
Thomas in a speech at Rossland
some time ago. The C. P. R.
may yet easily be first to give
Princeton direct connection with
the coast.
The V..V.&E. is located
through Coquihalla Pass, but, excepting one or two narrow defiles,
there is room for two or more
tracks. Of course the railway
company that gets busy first
with the earth in the Pass is the
one to merit the confidence and
support of the people. If the
C.P.R. means business the mine
owners and other tonnage producers in the Similkameen will
heartily welcome them. The
tardiness with which the V.,V. &
E. is being built lends suspicion
that it will be many years, if
ever, before it reaches the coast.
Whether it be Hill, Shaughnessy,
or Mackenzie to connect the
coast first with the Similkameen
the policy of the people here will
be : 'First come, first served and

GREAT NORTHERN R. R.    Local and Personal
Those having  friends  visiting them
Will    Build   to   Penticton   after will confer a favor by acquainting the
Completing Line to Coast.       Pkbss wilh the fact.   All other local
news thankfully received.
J.II. Kennedy, Chief Engineer
of the Great Northern Railway,
wife and daughter, spent Wednesday night in Penticton after
driving in from Keremeos.
When interviewed. Mr. Kennedy stated that work was being
pushed forward on the V., V. &
E. line from Keremeos to Princeton, and that the track would
reach the latter place in October.
No work would be done beyond
Princeton until the track had
been completed to that point.
As to the route the line would
take from Princeton to the coast,
Mr. Kennedy was non-committal,
but he did not view with any apprehension the fact that the C.P.
R. had a survey party at work
on the Coquihalla pass through
the Hope Mountains as that company was at present surveying
lines promiscuously.
Referring to the Wenatchee-
Oroville extension, Mr. Kennedy
stated that the line had been
surveyed and the right of way
purchased, but no actual construction had yet been done so
far as he was aware. A line
would eventually be run from
Oroviile, or somewhere near that
point, to Penticton, but that was
still in the future. It would not
be done until the V., V. & E.
had been completed to the coast
and until water had been put on
the land in the Fairview and
Osoyoos sections of the lower
Okanagan. The road, when
built, would come straight up the
Okanagan River to this point.
Being asked what he thought
about the Spokane & B.C.Ry.Co.
in its beginning construction
westward from Rock Creek, Mr.
Kennedy said he knew that actual construction had begun.
The Spokane & B.C. Railway Co.
he understood, had taken over
the Midway-Vernon charter and
it looked to him as though the
C. P. R. had taken over the
Spokane & B.C.
Earthquakes in Mexico.
City of Mexico. August 2.���
Want and misery have followed
in the path of 73 earthquake
shocks of varying intensity
which have devastated the cities
of Acapulco, Chitpancingo and
and surrounding country, according to advices received here today.
In addition to the temblors in
which many persons were crushed to death, a tidal wave visited
Acapulco and added to the loss
of life and property.
The situation to-day is rendered doubly desperate by lack
of supplies and food.
Scenes of misery in the earthquake ridden area are indescribable. Every town and city has
its list of injured or dead and the
hungry inhabitants are camping
in the open near their desolated
Communication is difficult and
the full extent of the damage
cannot be ascertained until the
wires have been replaced.
We are glad to note that when
H. Lang, road superintendent,
was in town last week, he stated
that the government would provide one thousand dollars for the
clearing of Penticton Creek and
one thousand dollars for the repairing of the trunk road, provided the municipality duplicated
the amounts. This is a very
liberal offer, and will no doubt
be taken advantage of by the
Council although it will be necessary to borrow the amounts prescribed for the municipality.

assessor. It is hoped that they
may be able to secure the services of a man with sufficient
backbone to do the work with
fairness to all.
Mrs. A. F. Baker and children
left for New Westminster on
Tuesday, Rev. Mr. Baker having
preceded them some time ago to

pulpit in that city.

Imperial Unity and Defence.
The Vancouver Province criticizes Hon. Mr.   Brodeur for his
remarks before the conference on
imperial defence.    Mr.   Brodeur
is reported to have said that, "if
the aim was at the foundation of
in imperial squadron, to be controlled by the admiralty, then it
would be only losing time for the
lefence   conference   to discuss
the matter.   Canada would never!
consent to such control."    The,
Province remarks that if Canada '���
builds a navy,  that  navy will
have to come under the super-
vision of the imperial authorities
to some extent, and that, "if the
colonies   should   insist,   in   line'
with Mr.   Brodeur's  pronouncement,   on   directing   their  own
rrdval   and   military   establish-
nents there might as well be no '
tilk of co-operation at all."
The Province forgets that there
is a difference between co-operation and subordination.     Great
Britain and  France co-operated
very successfully in the Crimean
war against Russia without the
a:-.ny   of   either country   being
under   the   supervision   of   the j
other.     It  would  be absurd to j
sipposethat when  the colonies!
become more populous and more '
wealthy than the mother coun-
try, they, or anything they possess, should still be under her
supervision.   When a son reaches
maturity, he may co-operate with
his father, assist  him,  or fight
for him and still be in absolute
control of his own business.
When an individual invests
money in an enterprise, he insists upon having a voice in that
enterprise in proportion to the
amount he has invested. Let us,
then, ask ourselves a simple question. Suppose Canada built and
maintained a navy, and placed
it under the control of the British admiralty in time of war.
It might be better or worse managed then by Canada herself, |
but if it met disaster, where,
could the blame be fixed? There
would, assuredly, be a howl go
up from one end of the Dominion
to the other that would tend to,
anything but imperial unity.
We believe that in this instance I
at least the Liberal government:
has its finger on the pulse of the
Canadian people.   Canada wishes
to contribute her share towards
imperial defence, but will insist!
| upon   having   absolute   control
lover   what  she  creates.     The
j sooner  the   Conservative  press
and the Conservative party make
J a careful study of the wishes of
the Canadian   people the soon-
' er that party will come into power.

The growing of the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with the work, is
personally superinlendiKl by the individual members <)f the Drru, and they work on the plan that
the best is none too good for their customers.
We have made larRe shipments of trees in to the Okanafcran Valley and can give the names
of the largest planters in that district, who, hav a planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are grown in the famous Nragina district, in Oiltario. in a climate very similar
to that of the Okanagan Valley, and our trees nre consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are tho Coast stock, beir , more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of librous roots, which count ftK mur i In making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one.
We shall be pleased to hear from i>r'�� ineclive planters, with a view to supplying them with
the best grade of trees, true to name.
We wish to secure the services'of a goni reliable man to represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, and will make liberal tern- . to th.o right party, for all, or a part of his time.

C. Were, Esq.
Municipal Clerk,
Penticton, B. C.
Dear Sir :���
Replying to yours of the 31st.
ult. regarding the sale of our
water system to the Municipality.
I am pleased to be given the
opportunity of showing the public we are preDared to keep faith
with those who have purchased
land from us. As many buyers
seemed to think the public should
own the water system, I assured
them that when incorporation
took place we would dispose of
the system to the Municipalty at
cost should they desire to acquire
it. We are prepared to make
concessions to assist you should
you decide it to be in the interest
of the Municipality to take over
the system, and I would recommend under this head to our
Board that a deduction be made
for depreciation in flumes and
any other perishable part of our
works, also that your Bonds or
Debentures at fifty years bearing 5 per cent interest be taken
in full payment.
The allowance for depreciation
could be fixed by a reliable Engineer, or committee of Engineers
as might be agreed upon; while
the acceptance of Bonds or Debentures by our Company
would render it unnecessary
for the Municipality to do any
borrowing outside.
The approximate cost of system to date is $128,000.00 over
one half of which has gone into
permanent work consisting of
dams and reservoirs. Should
you require further details I shall
be pleased to furnish them upon
Thanking  you   for  your   enquiry, I remain,
Yours truly,
(sgd) W. T. Shatford,
Managing Director.

CopyrlKht.  1905.  by  Rex  E.  Deich.
He had failed everjrw&ere; he had become an outlaw; lip bad fought and
jrotH* down, certain only of his rectitude and Hip mastery of uis niirnlr
spirit Now the botir had coine when
he would perforin Ins last mission, de-
rivlug therefrom lhat satisfaction
which the c<��ls could not deny. He
would have his cetitretinee.
The scheme took forth wlthnnt rnn-
scious effort on his part and embraced
two things (lie death of the gambler
and a trioetinB with McNamara. Of
the former, he had no more doubt than
that the' sun rising there would sink
in the west. So well confirmed was
this belief that tlie details did not engage his thought: but ou the result of
the other encounter he speculated with
some Interest From the lirst McNamara had lieen a riddle to him. and
mystery breeds curiosity. Ills blind.
Instinctive hatred of the man had assumed the proportions of a mania; bnt
as to what the outcome would be when
they met face to face, fate alone could
tell. Anyway. McNamara should never
have Helen���Roy believed his mission
covered that point as well as her deliverance from the Bronco Kid. When
he had finished, he would pay the
price. If he had the luck to escape,
he would fro back to his hills and his
solitude: if be did not. his future would
be in the hands of bis enemies.
He. entered the silent streets unobserved, for the mists were heavy and
low. Smoke columns arose vertically
In tbe still sir. The rain had ceased,
having beaten down the waves which
rumbled auninst the beach. filling the
streets wilh their subdued thunder. A
ship anchored iu the offing, had run
In from the lee of Sledge island with
the first lull, while midway to the
shore a tender was rising and falling,
its oars flashing like the silvered
feelers of ft.sea Insect crawling upon
the surface of the ocean.
He rode down Front street heedless
of danger.- heedless of the comment his
appearance migl��t create, and. unseen,
entered his enemy's stronghold, ne
passed a gambling hall, through the
windows of which enme a sickly yellow gleam. A man came ont unsteadily and Stared at the horseman,
then passed on.
Olenister's plan was to go straight to
the Northern and from there to truck
down Its owner relentlessly, bnt In
order to reach the place his course led
him past the office of Dunham &
Struve. This brought back to his mind
the man dying ont there ten miles at
his bnck. The scantiest humanity demanded that assistance l>e sent :;t
once. Yet he dared not give word
openly, thus betraying his presence, for
It was necessary thnt he maintain hH
llherty during the next hour nt all hazards. He suddenly thought of nn expedient aud reined in his horse, which
stopped with wide spread legs and dejected head while he dismounted nnd
climbed the stairs to leave a note upon
the door. Some one would see the
message shortly and recognize lt^
urgency. . I
In dressing for tbe bnttle ot the \f-
tn��_ on the previous night he had tt-
plaiiti uis leather boots witli "milk
Inks." which are waterproof, light and
pliable footgear made from the skin ot
seal and walrus. He was thus able to
move as noiselessly as though In moccasins, l-'iudimr ueither pencil nor paper hi his pocket, lie tried the outer
door of the office, to find It unlocked.
He stepped Inside and listened, then
moved toward a table ou which were
writing materials, but in doing so
heard a rustle lu Struve's private office. Kvidently his soft soles had not
disturbed the man Inside. Boy wns
about to tiptoe out as he had come
when the hidden man cleared his
throat. It Is In these involuntary
sounds that the voice retains Its nut
lira I iiuallty more distinctly even than
lu speaking. A strange eagerness grew
in Olenister's face, and lie approached
the partition stealthily It was of wood
nnd glass, tlie panes clouded and
opaque to n height of some six feet:
bnt. stepping upon a chair, he peered
Into the room beyond. A man knelt In
a litter of papers before the open safe,
itx drawers and compartments removed and their contents scattered. The
wntcher lowered himself, drew his gun
nnd laid soft Hand upon the doorknob,
turning the latch with firm Angers. His
vengeance had come to meet him.
After lying-In wait during the long
night, certain thut the vigilantes would
siiiing his trap. McNamara was astounded at news of the battle at the
Midas and of Gleulster's success. He
stormed and cursed his men as cowards. The Judge became greatly exercised over tills new development,
which, coupled with his night of long
��� anviely. reduced him to a pitiful hysteria.
"They'll blow us up next. Great
heavens! Dynamite! Oh. that is barbarous. For heaven's sake, get the soldiers out. Alec"
"Ay. we can use them now." Thereupon McNamara roused the commanding officer at the post and requested
him to nccouter a troop and have them
ready to march at daylight, then bestirred the Judge to start tbe wheels of
his court and invoke tills military aid
In regular fashion;
"Make it all a matter of record.'' he
s-iid. "Wo want to keep our skirts
clear from now on."
"But   the   townspeople   arc   against
us." quavered Stillinau.    "They'll tear
us t) pieces."
"Let 'em try. Once I get my I.nnd
on Ihe ringleader, the rest may riot
and he damned."
Although he had made less display
than had the Judge, the receiver was
no less worried about Helen, of whom
DO news came. His jealousy, fanned
to red heat by tho discovery of her
earlier defection, was enhanced fourfold by the thought of this last adven
ture. Something told him there was
treachery afoot, and when she did not
return at dawn he began to fear that
she had cast in her lot with the rioters, This aroused u perfect delirium
of doubt and anger till he reasoned
further that Struve, having gone witli
her. must also be a traitor. He recognized Hie menace in this fact, knowing
the man's vetiaMty, so began to reckon
carefully its significance. What could
Struve do? What proof had he? Mc-
Naiuara started and. seizing his hat
hurried straight to the lawyer's office
and let himself iu with the key he carried. It was light enough for him to
decipher the characters on the safe
lock as he tu'-ued the combination, so
he set to work scanning (he endless
bundles within, hoping that after all
the man had taken with him no Incriminating evidence. Once the searcher
paused at some fancied sound, lint
when nothing came of it drew his revolver and laid it before him just inside the safe door mid close beneath
his bund, continuing to run through
the documents while his uneasiness increased He had been engaged so for
some time when he beard the faintest
creak at his back, too slight to alarm
aud just sufficient to break his tension
ami cause bim to jerk his head about.
Framed In the open door stood Boy
Olenister watching him.
McNamara's astonishment was so
genuine that he leaped to his feet,
faced ubout. and prompted by a secretive instinct swung to the sale door as
though to guard its contents. He had
acted upon the Impulse before realizing that his weapon wns inside and
tbat uow, although the door was uot
locked, it would require that one dangerous, yes, fatal second to open it.
The two men stared at each other
for a time, silent and malignant, their
glances meeting like blades; in the older mail's face a look of defiance, in the
.monger's a dogged and grim purposed
enmity. McNamara's first perturbation left bim calm, alert, dangerous,
whereas the cont'.uued' contemplation
of his enemy wtfked in Olenister to
destroy his composure, and his purpose
blazed forth unhidden.

overgrown with a three days' black
stubble, bis hair wet aud matted, his
whole left side foul with clay where
he had fallen In the darkness. A muddy red strei'k spread downward from a
cut above his temple, beneath his eyes
were sagging folds, while the dicker at
his mouth corners betrayed tile high
nervous pitch to vhich he was keyed.
"I have come for the Inst act. Me
Nanism. Now we'll have it out man
to man."
The politician shrugged his shoulders,
"You have the drop ou me. I am unarmed." At which the miner's face
lighted fiercely. ���<n.l he chuckled.
"Ah, that's almost loo good to be
true. I have dreamed about such a
thing, ami I have been hungry to feel
yonr throat since the first time I saw
you. It's grown on me till shooting
wottkln't satisfy me. Ever had the
feeling? Well. I'm going to choke the
life opt of you wilh my bare hands."
McNamara squ-'i-ed himself.
"I wouldn't advise you to try it. I
have lived longer than you, and I was
never beaten, but I know the feeling
you speak about.    I have It now."
His eyes roved rapidly up and down
the other's form, noting the lean thighs
nnd close drawn belt, which lent the
appearance of spurseness, belled only
hy the neck and shoulders, He had
beaten better men, and he reasoned
that if It came to a physical test in
these cramped quarters his own great
weight would more than offset nny superior agility the miner might possess.
The longer he looked the more he
yielded to Ills hatred of the man before
hlin and the more cruelly lie longed to
satisfy it.
"Take off your coat," said Olenister.
"Now turn around. All right! I Just
wanted to see if you were lying about
your gun."
"I'll kill you!" cried McNamara.
Olenister laid his six shooter upon the
safe und slipped off his own wet garment. The difference was more mark
ed now und the advantage more
strongly with the receiver. Though
they had avoided allusion to It. Bitch
knew that this light had nothing to
do  with   tlie   Midas  and  each   realized
whence   sprang   their   fierce   enmity,
Aud It was meet that they should
come tor-ether thus. It had lieon the
one certain and logical event which
they had felt Inevitably approaching
from long back. And II was lining,
moreover, that they should light nlone
and unwitnessed, armed only with the
weapons of the wilderness, for they
were both of the far. free lands, were
both of the fighter's type and had
'iotb warred for tlie lirst great prize.
They    met    ferociously.      McNamara

Olenister's list shot forward like a
