What Our Exchanges say about
Railway Building in this District.
Greenwood Ledge
It is reported in the city this
week that construction of the
railway from Midway to Penticton will be commenced in a short
Similkameen Star
The Nichola Herald says there
will be something doing in railroad construction shortly. Tht
C. P. R. has deposited in the
land registry office, Kamloops, all
the profiles, etc., showing the
first section, 30 miles, of the proposed extension of the Nicola,
Kamloops & Similkameen railway from Mirritt to Smilkameen.
The road will be built along the
Coldwater and the first step in
construction will be taken about
the first of July. All this is good
news, one effect of which will be
the stimulus to construction on
the V., V. & E.,
Tarcklaying is proceeding at a
fair rate on the V., V. & E. The
first bridge over the Similkameen
from Keremeos. will be ready for
tram passage on July 4th. Ballasting will begin as soon as ten
miles of track is laid, the assembling of men, cars, steam shovel
and a small village on wheels being made now for that purpose.
Grading is going on at the usual
pace and there is no doubt that
the contractors will keep well in
advance of the rail layers.
Contractor Hankinson will
shortly throw a temporary bridge
across the Similkameen, thus delivering dirt in town for yard
and station area. The spur of
the V. F. M. Co's coal will be
commenced soon.
The Wenatchee branch of the
V., V. & E. is under contract
from Oroviile to Brewster.
The railway Journal states that
the Hill people will spend $15,-
000,000 on construction in the
west this year. What proportion
of that sum the V., V. & E. will
receive is not mentioned but it is
estimated that $3,000,000 will be
required to build the link from
Princeton to near Cloverdale.
Nicola Herald
You never can tell anything absolutely definite with regard to
railway construction until the
rails are actually being laid.
However, there seems to be very
good grounds for believing that
th�� C. P. R. will build from Mer-
ritt into the Similkameen this
The Coldwater route has been
decided upon, and the plans profiles, etc., are now at the head
office in Monteral.
The Herald has learned from
the best of authority that the contractors, McDonald & Czowski,
will be in Merritt with their construction equipment as soon as
they have completed their engagement at Field.
It is also learned that the new
station will be built this year. It
is not the intention of the C. P.
R. to deprive the travelling public
of station accommodation over
another winter.
Keremeos Chronicle
To a man up a tree it looks as
if there was to be something doing in railway construction at
this point within the next few
weeks, says the Nicola Herald.
The C. P. R. has deposited in the
Land Registry Office at Kamloops
a plan, profile and book of reference showing the first section,
thirty miles, of th^e, proposed extension of the Nicola, Kamloops
and Similkameen railway from
Merritt to Similkameen. Inquiry
made by the Herald shows that
the road is to be built along the
Coldwater survey..
We are given to understand
upon very good authority that
che initial steps in connection
with the construction will be
taken early in July. In our nexi
issue, however, we expect tc
have information to hand which
will be positively authentic.
That bunkers at Spences Bridgt
are being got in readiness is a
���rood sign.
Construction work starting1 at
this time will be a good thing fo��
Merritt and the valley generally.
With the rich mineral country t(
be tapped and the advantageous
connections to be made in th(
south it would be strange if th(
proposed extension is not carried
out at the earliest time possible.
Naramatans Celebrate.
Last Saturday the citizens of
the United States living in Naramata commemorated early history by a Fourth of July Celebration. As the fourth came on
Sunday the event took place on
the third.
In the afternoon there was a
programme of games and songs,
but in the evening a huge bonfire made the beach a very attractive scene. The sparks and
smoke of the fire curled about
the high tops of the trees, while
the flames reddened the sky.
The company including almost
the entire community, gathered
between the fire and the water's
edge. There Britisher and A-
merican joined in singing "Yankee" songs. These, however,
were interspersed with short
speeches and solos and social
chats. Then a fine display of
fireworks was given. Before
the gathering dispersed they rose
from their reclining and sitting
position, on the sandy shore, and
sang in a most hearty manner
"God Save the King."
Budden���Bright man.
St. Michael's and All Angel's
church, Kelowna, was the scene
of a very interesting event on
Wednesday of this week, when
Mr. Frank George Budden, of
Kelowna, and Miss Lena Ross
Brightman, recently of Nanaimo,
were joined in marriage by the
Rev. Thos. Green, M. A. The
ceremony took place at 1:30 p.m.,
mid a gathering of relatives and
friends. Miss Margurite Budden, sister of the groom, and
Miss Birdie Small were the
bridesmaids, while Mr. Wm.
Budden, a brother, accompanied
the groom.
The happy couple, after spending a few days of their honeymoon in Penticton, will take up
their residence in Kelowna.
We are pleased to announce
that our worthy Reeve, A. H.
Wade, is recovering, though
slowly, from the effects of injuries received by the upsetting of
a wagon on July 1.
J. W. Macfie and family, who
have resided here for the past
year or two, left on Friday's
boat for Vancouver, where Mr.
Macfie has secured a position as
book keeper. They expect to
return to their home here at
some future date.
Jas. Beck, of the Royal Medicated Stock Food Co. at Vancouver, spent a day in Penticton
this week, having come in by
stage from Nicola. He reports
that he did very well with his
goods all through the country.
See advertisement in this issue.
This week a carload of lake-
shore sand was shipped from
Penticton to New Westminster
under the direction of Hamilton
Lang, the government road superintendent. This is the result
of a test made a month ago of a
couple of hundred pounds sent
to the government office at Victoria. The sand will probably
be used in cement work.
The Second  Naramata  Regatta
to be Bigger and Better
Than Ever.
On Thursday, July 22nd, the
second of the '09 series of regattas comes off at Naramata,
ind preparations are being made
ror a much larger and more im-
>osing affair than was the last
me, and that means a good deal.
In addition to the usual sailing,
rowing, motor, diving and swimming contests, there will be some
special features and funny
���stunts. For example, there will
A despatch will be given to
each of the contestants opposite
the hotel in Summerland at three
o'clock in the afternoon, to be
delivered to the judges on the
rrand stand at Naramata, via
Penticton; distance about twenty
miles if the river be forded. A
change of horses to be made at
Penticton. This race will be
visible from the grand stand a
great part of the way. If three
horses start, the prize will be a
fifty dollar saddle.
So exciting and spectacular
have the war canoe races proven
that it is proposed to have more
of them. There will, therefore,
be three different war canoe
races on the 22nd. The first will
be the second race for the "Robinson" cup, and medals. (Summerland won the cup at the last
regatta, and each paddler got a
bronze medal.) If Summerland
should win again, each paddler
will receive a silver medal, and
should the same canoe win again
it the August regatta the m3dals
would then be gold.
Mr. Price Ellison, M. P. P., of
Vernon, is donating eight silver
medals, and one of gold for the
captain, for a junior war canoe
race. The paddlers must be
under 20 years and the captain
of the senior crew is to be at the
helm. These medals are to be
competed for twice at Naramata,
on July 22nd and August 26th.
The S. C. Smith Lumber Company, of Vernon, Naramata, and
Penticton have contributed eight
silver medals, and one gold for
the captain, for a senior war
canoe race. This should be the
finest race of all since the eight
paddlers selected from the full
crew of 15 should be dandy
paddle handlers. This prize will
also be competed for at Naramata July 22nd and Aug. 26th.
Mr. Price Ellison, M.P.P., has
also contributed a beautiful silver
cup to be played for three times
by the Summerland and Kelowna
baseball teams. The first match
will be played at the opening of
the new baseball grounds at
South Summerland on Thursday,
July 15th. This will be one of
the regular league matches. The
next two games will be special
at Naramata on July 22nd. and
on Naramata Day, August 26th.
Mr. Adam Stark, of Summer-
land, donated a handsome silver
cup last year for a handicap sailing race to be competed for
either at Summerland or Naramata. This cup was won last
year by Mr. Allan Agur's "Ona-
way," and this season it was
captured by Mr. Ed. Sawyer's
' 'Spider." This cup will be raced
for again on July 22nd at Naramata.
The Summerland Brass and
Reed Band will open the day
with a number of selections, commencing at 2 p. m., and will play
at intervals during the afternoon
and evening.
Provision will be made for
meals and other refreshments at
the hotel and booths. In addition to this, tables and seats will
be provided in the shade of the
trees for those who bring baskets. Bring your baskets and
your friends and have a regular
picnic and a good time. Hot
water will be available for those
with baskets. Meals at the hotel
will cost 50 cents, but at the
lunch counter a meal will cost
will leave Kelowna at 12:15 p. m."
and returning will leave Naramata at 8:15. This gives the
people of Kelowna and intermediate points an opportunity of
spending a pleasant afternoon
and evening at small expense,
and reaching home at about
regular bedtime. The Maud
Moore will run between Penticton and Naramata.
Boxes on grand stand with
eight chairs cost $3.00. This is
the comfortable provision for
families and small parties. If
you want a box better write to
George Wolstencroft, Naramata.
Grand stand seats 25 cents.
The third regatta of the series
will be held on Naramata Day,
August 26th. If you can't afford to attend both, better wait
for Naramata Day, for that will
be the event of the season.
Everybody welcome. Everybody come and bring your

Railroad Development.
Railroad talk is again rife.
The C. P. R. have filed their
plans for the extension of their
Nicola branch up the Coldwater
owards the Similkameen Valley
in the vicinity of Penticton. The
ton tract has been let for a portion of the Wenatchee branch of
:he Great Northern to the south
)f Oroviile. Meanwhile the V.,
V. & E., the British Columbia
portion of the Great Northern
system, is gradually working its
way up the Similkameen, finally
to meet that section of the same
line now completed eastward
from Vancouver as far as Blaine.
The object of the C. P. R. in
hastening to build down the
Coldwater to the Similkameen
may have been caused by the
fear that that route would be utilized by the Canadian Northern
in its route from the North
Thompson country to the coast,
the probability having been suggested that the Canadian Northern would utilized that route and
join hands with the Greal Northern in a partnership line over the
Hope Mountains to the coast.
The C. P. R. felt keen by its loss
of the Similkameen Valley to the
Great Northern, and thit company is apparently taking advantage of its last opportunity to
get a footing in at least the
Princeton and Tulameen portions. Thus the railroads are
closing in, and ever bringing
nearer the time when connection
will be made with Penticton.
Apart from the rumor that construction is likely to start on the
Midvvay-Penticton line, we view
with special gratification the pro-:
gress that is being made on the!
Wenatchee-Oroviile extension of j
the Great Northern.    People are
liable to overlook the importance
of the construction of this line. A
glance at   the   map   will   show,
Wenatchee to be about one hundred   and  twenty  miles to the
south of Oroviile on  the Great
Northern Railway,   almost midway between Spokane and Seattle.    The linking up of the Great
Northern lines by this  piece of
road, would traverse the which
Okanagan   River  for its entire
lenght south of the boundary and
a portion of the Columbia as well,
woulJ give transportation to &\
large   and   valuable   section   of
Washington State and place Oro-1
iville within two   hundred  miles;
of either Seattle or Spokane.    It
is the well  known intention  of,
the Great Northern  to push the
this line up the valley to Okanagan lake.    We may rest assured
that when  the Wenatchee-Oro-j
ville extension is completed, fifty
miles of exceedingly  productive
country will not long intervene I
between   it and   the  Okanagan
Lake,   from   which   points,   by
means   of steamers,   the entire
Okanagan     country   could     he
reached.    The  value of this line
to Penticton, or the Okanagan in
general, may readily be perceived  when we note that it would
place this point within r.inc hours
run of Seattle.
Not being gifted with the
power t f prr p' ecy, we cannot

be built, tut that it will be built

The Brown Brothers Company
Nurserymen,   -   of Ontario
Aire extensive growers of all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs, Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
tho'merhbers of the firm are all practical nurserymen of 25 years experience, and have built up
the most successful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The growinR of the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with the work, is
personally superintended by the individual members of the firm, and they work on the plan that
the best is none tqb'&ood for their customers. .    .*'
We;have made large shipments of trees into the Okanasran Valley and can (rive the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are grown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of tne Okanagan Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are the Coast stock, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of fibrous roots, which cuunt for much in making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one. ���<
We shall be pleased to hear from prospective'planters, with a view to supplying them with
tho best, grade of trees, true to name.
We wish to secure the services of a good reliable man to represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, [and will make liberal terms to the right party, for all, or a part of his time.

CHAS. L. TROTTER, Manager,
Brown Brothers Company, Nurserymen, Ltd.,
1125 8th Ave., Vancouver, B.C.
of the Southern Okanagan may
look with reasonable assurance
to the not distant date when the
Great Northern, along with the
C. P. R., will be hauling practically all the freight of the Okanagan Lake region through the
southern gateway of the valley.
The completion of the V. V. &
E. from Keremeos to the coast
will, of itself, prove of value to
the Okanagan to an extent that
has been practically overlooked.
Keremeos will be within seven
hours' run of Vancouver. Penticton is within five hours' drive
by stage of Keremeos, and will
thus be within twelve hours of
Vancouver, or considerably less
than half the distance by the
present C. P. R. route. This
means that the greater portion
of the passenger traffic between
the Okanagan and the coast will
be by this route. It is, therefore, up to the people of the Okanagan to urge upon the government the necessity of inducing
or forcing the Great Northern to
complete the V. V. & E. without
delay. The people of the Boundary, Similkameen and lower

Premier McBride gives a glowing account of the progress he
noted in the upper country during his recent trip through the
Interior. If his government
would adopt a more progressive
railway policy, he would soon
have double reason to rejoice.
It is reported that J. A. McDonald, leader of the opposition
in the Legislature, will be made
a judge. It is hoped that the
Liberals may be succeessful in
securing a good, agressive loader, capable of formulating a progressive policy, especially as applied to railway construction.

If the daily papers of Vancouver should accidently make
the discovery that the whole province is not embraced within the
limits of that city, that there is
even a little country, of some
two hundred thousand square
miles, east of the Coast Range,
yet within the bounds of the province, and that, although this
little patch of land may not be
capable of supporting more than
a few paltry millions of farmers,
ranchers, fruit growers, miners
and merchants, those papers
might possibly condescend to
to give a little attention to the
transportation question of the
upper country.

The more she read of it the more
certain she grew that the crisis was
only a question of hours and thnt with
darkness tragedy would wnlk tho
streets of Nona;. The thought of the
wrong already done wa3 lost In the
lonely girl's tenor of the crime about
to happen, for it seemed to her she had
been the instrument to set these forces
in motion, that she had loosed this
swift speeding avalanche of greed.
halted nnd brutality. And when the
crash should come���the girl shuddered.
It must uot be. She would shriek a
warning from the housetops even at
tost of her uncle, of Mc.N'amnra nnd of
herself. And yet she hnd no proof that
a crime existed. Although It nil lay
clear in her own mind, the certainty
of it arose only from her intuition.
If only she were able to tnke n hand
���if only site were not a woman. Then
Cherry Malotte's words anent Struve
recurred to her. "A bottle of wine nnd
a woman's face." They brought bnck
the lawyer's assurance that those documents she had safeguarded all
through the long springtime Journey
really contained tho proof. If they
di.l. then they held the power to check
this impending conflict. Uer uncle
and the boss would not dnre continue
if threatened with exposure und prosecution. The more she thought of It
(ho more urgent seemed the necessity
(o prevent the battle of tonight. There
was a chance here nt least, and the
only one.
Adding to her mental torment wns
the constant vision of that face In the
curtains at the Northern. It was her
brother, yet what mystery shrouded
this affair also? What kept him from
her? What caused him to* slink sway
like a thief discovered? She grew
dizzy and hysterical.
Struve turned in his chair ns the
door to liis private office opened, then
leaped lo his feet nt sight of the gray
eyed girl standing there.
"I enme for (lie papers," she said.
"I knew you would." The blood went
out of his cheeks, then surged back up
to his eyes.    "It's a bargain then?"
She nodded, "Give them to me first."
He laughed unpleasantly. "What do
you lake me for? I'll keep my part of
the bargain if you'll keep yours. But
litis 13 no place, nor time. There's
riot in tlie air. and I'm busy preparing
for ton'g'it. Come back tomorrow
when it's all over."
Put it Wiis the terror of tonight's do-
ings that led her into his power.
"I'll never come back," she said. "It
is my whim to know today-yes, nt
He meditated for a time. "Then today it shall be. I'll shirk the fight,
I'll sacrifice what shreds of duty hnve

place clear.   Goodby."
Strengthened by Gleulster's note,
Helen went straight to the other woman and this time was not kept waiting nor greeted with sneers, but found
Cherry cloaked in a shy dignity, which
she clasped tightly about herself. Under her Visitor's Incoherence she lost
her diffidence, however, nud, when
, Helen hnd finished, remarked, with decision: "Don't go with him. He's n
bad man."
"But I must. The blood of those men
will be on me if I'don't stop this tragedy. If (hose papers tell the tale I
think they do, I can call off my uncle
and make McNamara give back the
mines. You said Struve told'you the
whole scheme.   Did you see the proof?"
"No, I have only his word, but he
spoke of those documents repeatedly,
snylng they contained his Instructions

a foothold' for the lawsuits. He
bragged that the rest of the gang were
in his power nnd thnt he could land
them in (he penitentiary for conspiracy.
Thnt's all."
"It's (he only chance," said Helen.
"They nre sending soldiers to the Midas
to die In ambush, und you must warn
the vigilantes." Cherry paled at this
and ejaculated:
"Good Ixml! Roy said he'd lend nn
attack tonight." Tho two stured at
each other.
"If I succeed with Struve I enn stop

Is an nniniiil. You'll bnve to kill him
to snve yourself, nnd he'll never give
up those proofs."
'���Yes, he will," snld Helen fiercely,
"nnd I defy him to harm me. The Sign
of the Sled Is n public rondhouse with
a lnndlord, a telephone nnd other
guests. Will you wnrn Mr. Glenlster
nbout the troops?"
"I will, and bless you for a brave
girl. Walt a moment." Cherry took
from the dresser her tiny revolver.
"Dou't hesitate to use this. 1 wnnt
you to, know nlso that I'm sorry for
what I said yesterday."
As she hurried away Helen realized
with n shock the change that the past
few months bad wrought In her. In
truth, it wus as Glenlster had said,
his northland worked strangely with
its denizens. What of thnt shrinking
girl who had stepped out of the sheltered life, strong only in ber untried
honesty, to become a hunted, harried
thing, juggling with honor nnd reputn-
tion, lu her heart n half formed fear
tbat she might kill n man this ulght to
gain her end? The elements were
moldiug her with Irresistible bauds.
Roy's contact with the primitive had
not roughened him more quickly than
bad hers.
She met her appointment with
Struve, aud they rode away together, he
talkative and elated, she silent nnd icy.
Date In the afternoon the cloud banks
to the eastward assumed alarming proportions. They brought with them an
early nightfall, and when they broke
let. forth a tempest which rivaled that
of the previous night. Durlug the first
of It armed men came sifting Into McNamara's office from the rear nnd were
hidden throughout the building. Whenever he descried u peculiarly desperate
ruffian the boss called him aside for
private Instruction and gave minute
description of a wide shouldered, erect
youth iu white hat nnd half boots.
Gradually he set his trap with the men
Voorhees had raked from the slums,
and when it was doue smiled to himself. As he thought It over he ceased
to regret the miscarriage of last night's
plnn, for It hnd served to gond his cue-
rales to the point he desired, to the
point where they would rush to their
own undoing. He thought with satisfaction of the role ho would- piny In the

If there were n scandal? Who would
question? As to soldiers���no, decidedly
no. He wished no help of soldiers at
this time.
The sight of n ship lu the offing toward dark caused him srvne uneasiness, for, notwithstanding the assurance that the course of justice In the
San Francisco courts hud been clogged,
he knew Bill Wheuton to be n resourceful lawyer nnd n determined mnn.
Therefore It relieved him to note the
rising gnle. which precluded the possibility of Interference from that source.
Let them come tomorrow If they
would. By that time some of (he mines
would be ownerless nnd his position
strengthened n hundredfold.
He telephoned the mines to (hmw

none but mndmen would think of

transmitted through Helen, rutting

This met with general approval,
Glenlster nlone demurring. Snld he:
"I hnve reasoned It out differently, and

Dextry spoke breathlessly to Slapjack In the pause which ensued:

to n mnn. And the chuirman ndded:
"Let's hnve Glenlster lend this forlorn

A few more words nnd Glenlster. accompli tiled by these two, slipped out
Into tlie whirling storm, nnd a half hour
Inter the rest followed. One by one
the vigilantes left, the blackness blotting them up an arm's leng'.h from
tlie door, till ut last the big. bleak
warehouse echoed hollowly to the
voice of the wind and water.
Over iu tlie eastern end of the town,
behind dark windows upou which the
sheeted rain beat furiously, other
armed men lay patiently waiting���
waiting some word from the bulky
shadow which stood with folded arms
close against a square of gray, while
ovpr their heads a wretched old mnn
paced buck uud forth, wringing his
hands, pausing at every turu to peer
out Into the night nnd to mumble the
name of his sister's child.
EAItl.Y In the evening Cherry Malotte opened her door to find the
Bronco Kid on her step. He
entered and threw off his rub
hereout. Knowing him well, she waited for his disclosure'Of his errand. His
sallow skin wns without n truce of
color, his eyes were strangely tired,
deep lines had gathered about his lips,
while his hands kept up constant little

thut his body had been rucked by every passion till uow It hung jaded und
weary, yielding ouly to the spur of his
restless, revengeful spirit
After a few objectless remarks he
begun abruptly;
"Do you love Roy Glenlster?" His
voice, like his manner, wus jealously
eager, und he watched her carefully as
she replied without quibble or deceit:
"Yes, Kid. and I always shall. He is
the only true mnn I have ever known
uud I'm not ashamed of my feelings."
For il long lime he studied her nud
then broke Into rapid speech, allowing
her no time for Interruption.
"I've held back and hold buck be-
cause I'm uo talker, I enn't be In my

She begged: "They're nil against

The mun growled savagely. "He got

"Dou't be n fool. I guess I know
You're a faro dealer, but you haven't
any right to talk like that about a good
woman, even to a bad one like me."
Into his dark eyes slowly crept a
hungry look, and she felt him begin to
tremble the lenst bit. He undertook lo
speak, paused, wet his lips, then cure-
.'idly chose these words:
"Do jou menu���that he did uot���that
she Is n���a good girl?"
He sat down weakly and passed a
shaking bund over his face, which had
begun to twitch and jerk again as It
hnd on thnt night when his vengeance
was thwarted.

his garment from the chair nnd held It
for him while the life ran back Into his
