PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS.
Will Appeal on  Railway Policy.
There will be a provincial el-
I ection this fall. Mr. Price Ellison returned from victoria on
Wednesday and brought with
him this news. He had seen
Premier McBride, who had just
left the Lieutenant-Governor,
and to Mr. Ellison the announcement was made that the House
would be dissolved at once, and
that the date for the election had
been set for November 25.
The Government will appeal
to the country on a railway policy which has been based on an
��! arrangement entered into with
McKenzie and Mann. These
magnates of the Canadian Northern agree to build a line from
Yellowhead Pass to Kamloops,
whence they will follow the river
down on the opposite side to the
C. P. R., building into Chilliwack
and on from there to Vancouver.
The Government is to guarantee
the bonds.
Another railway project which
is of more immediate interest to
the Okanagan is the arrangement
made by the Government with
the Kettle valley Railway Co.
which already has a line from
Republic, Washington, to Grand
Forks. This road will be continued from Midway to Carmi,
thence to Hydraulic Creek on
the West Fork of Kettle River,
when it will strike south to Penticton. It will then proceed up
to Summerland, follow up Trout
Creek, and strike a point about
five miles from Princeton.
Thence it will connect at Merritt
with the C. P. R. line to Spence's
Bridge.
Both parties will enter the fray
at once, and lively times in political circles may be looked for
from now until the date of election.
In confirmation of the above,
the following despatch has since
been rceived by Mr. Ellison:

Were you ever met at the kitchen door with the command
to step lightly or there would be trouble? You have, and you
knew instinctively, almost, that there was a cake in the oven
that would "go flat" at the slightest jar. Those terrorizing
days are past to those who use the right baking powder.

to a future meeting,
discussion as took place was informal. However, an air of enthusiasm was manifest to a degree hitherto unobserved at such
gatherings. It was generally
agreed that, if Penticton is to
hold her place among Okanagan
towns, she must not be behind
in aquatics.
With this end in view, a resolution was passed constituting
those present a committee to interview all the business men of
the place with a view to having
a full house at a meeting to be
held next Tuesday evening in
the room over the Land Co's
office.
The proposition that is to be
laid before the meeting is that
the Association erect a grand
stand equipped with boat houses,
booths and bath house, at the
esplanade east of the wharf, and
that a series of regattas be held
next summer. The question of
financing the proposition will be
matured later, probably at the
meeting.
The question of aquatics is beginning to be looked upon as a
business proposition, a means of
advertising the town and district, as is being done at other
lake points. A regatta implies
an excursion, and people will
come for the trip on the lake if
for nothing else. When they
get here they must see Penticton,
and that is bound to help.
It is desired to enlist the cooperation of all the business and
moneyed men of Penticton in
the enterprise. We cannot, as a
people, afford to stand idly by
any longer and see things move
as they choose. We must get
out and move them. Penticton
is the coming town, provided we
get together and make it come.
If we hesitate, other places, less
advantageously situated, will
certainly outstrip us in the race.
So be sure to honor the meeting
with your presence on Tuesday
evening.

The ceremony took place at the

immediate friends of the contracting parties were present.

New Westminster, Oct. 14 ���
The death occurred in this city
last evening of one of its best
known women in the person of
Mrs. Emma A. Rand, wife of A.
E. Rand, a well known broker.
Mrs. Rand had been ill for several years past, and had made trips
to California and Kamloops in
the hope of benefiting her health.
She seemed to have improved
until a few months ago, when
she began to lose ground. She
had been very weak for the past
few weeks and her demise was
not unexpected.
The late Mrs. Rand was thirty-
eight years of age, and a native
daughter of this city. She was
the daughter of Howard L. De-
Beck, one of the pioneer residents of New Westminster, and
at present living at Penticton.
She leaves besides a husband five
children, two sons and three
daughters, between the ages of
eight and eighteen. Mrs. Rand
leaves a large number of other
relatives in this city, including a
grandmother, Mrs. George De-
Beck, now over ninety years of
age, and two sisters, Mrs. J.
Alex. Cunningham and Mrs.
David Douglas. She was a niece
of Mr. Ward DeBeck of Vancouver and Capt. C. DeBeck of this
city.        	
Otto Gaube has opened a restaurant in connection with the
confectionery business.
Municipal Council.
At the Council meeting on
Friday, October 15, C. S. Stevens,
representing the Lakeshore Telephone Co., was present in connection with that company's application for a franchise. There
were several minor items of disagreement between the company
and the municipality, among
them being the duration of the
franchise. Mr. Stevens asked
that it be granted for ten years.
The Council was willing to grant
it for only five years and Mr.
Stevens finally consented to this.
The Council asked for a yearly
bonus of $50 for the franchise,
but upon Mr. Stevens clearly
placing his case before them as
to revenue and expenditure, the
demand was withdrawn. If the
system is not operated to the
satisfaction of the Council, provision is made whereby the municipality may take it over, at arbitrators' value and operate it.
The rates to be charged are limited to $2.50 for private houses
and $3.00 for business places.
The  meeting  adjourned  and
met on the following Monday.
Engineer Kilmer was present
I to discuss with the Council the
: matters of a domestic water sup-
1 ply for Penticton. Mr. Kilmer
! expressed his willingness to un-
: dertake the work of making a
preliminary investigation and estimate for the municipality in
I about   ten   days'   time
(From Merrit HeralH.)
The Nicola branch of the C. P.
R. will shortly be extended and
carried over to a point where it
will be joined with the Columbia
and Western line at Midway and
thus give through communication from the boundary to the
coast.
The line will be carried through
the Similkameen and Okanagan
districts. At Vancouver, Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy made an
important announcement affecting this work. "It will soon become a live question," said the
C. P. R. head. "It is true that
we have made numerous surveys,
but it is also possible that we
may yet have to make additional
surveys. In a work of that
magnitude involving so vast an
expenditure it is best to proceed
slowly."
Superintendent 0. W. Millar,
Chief Engineer S. E. Cartwright,
Trainmaster J. Cameron, Bridge
Superintendent J. Z. Choate,
Resident Engineer J. Wilson,
Locomotive Superintendent W.E.
Evans and Road Master Go.
Munroe were in on a special
train on a tour of general inspection Friday. While Superintendent Millar was rather reticent
with regard to construction, he
inferred, in an interview, that
there was scarcely any doubt
that President Shaughnessy's remarks as above quoted, meant
that the Coldwater route would
be the route selected. This has
an important significance for
Merritt and the Nicola generally.
The fact that the G. T. P. surveyors are at work in the Nicola
also has an important significance.

Water Works in Sight.
There  need  be absolutely  no
fear of the  future of Penticton
provided  its citizens display   a
sufficient    amount    of    energy;
backed up by a  fair amount of
horse sense.    It is now  univer-l
sally recognized that the one re-!
qiirement   of    the   place    that'
eclipses all others is a domestic1
supply of water.    The people are !
becoming clamorous for water,
and we are glad  they are,   for J
when the whole people want any-1
thing, ways and  means are of i
secondary importance. '���
We are glad to note  that the
Council are now taking steps to'
have the sources of water supply j
investigated by a competent en-|
gineer.     It is  regrettable   that |
tests of  water  were  not made |
previously,   but   the   Board   of
Trade have  now  taken  up the
question of analysis,   and  hope,
within a few weeks,   to  present
the required information as to
water purity.
Taking   everything   together,
there is little  reason  to  doubt
that Penticton will have a water,
s ipply early next summer.     We'
h ive no doubt about it if sufficient energy is displayed.    There
is no further necessity of dilating |
upon the advantages of domestic j
j water to fhe town and  benches;
all now realize that it will be the
making of the place.     There is
no   fear  of   sinking   Penticton
through   improvements   of   this
kind.    For every dollar of debt
contracted,   ten,    perhaps   one
hundred, will  be  returned  as a
direct   result   of   the   improvements.

The question    as  to  whether
| the provincial   Legislature  is to
! be dissolved this fall is occasioning  considerable   discussion   at
present.    No definite announce-
j ment has been made by the Gov-
| ernment,  but in opposition circles, at least,  it is felt that an
election  is  not far distant.    It
1 has been rumored  that the Government  will    probably   hold  a
; short session  this  fall and then
go to  the  people on  a  railway
j policy.    Just what form that pol-
i icy will take few, if any, outside
ithe government  know,   but it is
. felt that it will  have a bearing
upon the construction of the Canadian Northern  Railway though
the province to the Coast.    An
announcement of the speedy construction of that railway would
be hailed with  delight by many
sections, but a  railway policy to
meet the requirements and ap-1
proval of the province in general
will be required to embrace much !
more than the  building of a single  line.    There  are  dozens  of I
places in British  Columbia that I'
: are crying out for railway communication,  and a policy to be
adequate must  be  general in its
\ scope as  well as specific  in its
application.
British Columbia has been a
long time waiting for a progressive railway policy on the part of
the government, and all are now
breathlessly awaiting the an-
n luncement. Meanwhile, John
Oliver, the Liberal leader, has
come out with a railway policy
which certainly  commends itself

The Tie That Binds
(From Similkameen Star.)
While  the rail  head  has  not
t reached  Princeton  station  it is
near enough to say that the town
is now linked by two inseperable
i bands of steel with the rest of
j the world.   The tracklayers were
| delayed with shortage of materi-
! al but  they forged  ahead  with
such good effect that steel is now
j within two   or   three minutes'
walk of the centre of town.
The spur to the v. F. M. Co's
j coal mine will not be finished for
about  two weeks  although the
work is being pushed with all
speed.
Ballasting and surfacing is being
carried on with all the help avail-
|| able and it looks encouraging for
regular train service about the
first of December. In any case
the order of communication and
j train regulations, mail and telegraph service should be in operation before the new year.
There are rumors that construction will be continued westward to the coast as soon as the
line is finished to this point.
There is nothing to verify or corroborate any of these reports.
Chief Engineer Hogeland was
here recently, but he made no
statement, only a suggestion that
the workmen would be re-engaged on new contracts.

Imprisonment eonld take from him, not

i'il music sounded in bis ears again,
but he did not shrink from it now.
Tbis was not the circus bond he hurl
lieanl as be left tin1 squnre, but a hip!
oily like ii faraway serenade at night
as of "the boms of elf land faintly
blowing." and be closed bis eyes with
tlie sweetness of it.
"tin alipad." bp wbispprprl. "Do that
���ill you want to. If you'll keep it. Op
like tbis awhile, I'll follow with 'Little
Itrown Jug, How I Love Thee!' It
seems to pay after all!"
Tbe welcome strains, however, were
but the prelude to a harsher sound
which interrupted and annihilated
them���tbe courthouse bell dancing out
12. "All right." said Joe. "It's noon,
aud I'm 'across Main street bridge.' "
[le opened ills eyes and looked about
bim whimsically. Then he shook his
head  again.
A lady had just emerged from the
bridge and wns coming toward him.
It would be hard to get at Joe's first
impressions of her. We cau Hnd conveyance for only tbe broadest nnd
heaviest. Ancient and modem instances
multiply the case of tbe sleeper who
dreams out a long story in accurate
color and tine detail, a tale of years, in
the opening and shutting of a door. So
with Joseph in the brief space of the
lady's approach. And with him, as
with the sleeper, it must have been���
in fact it was���in bis recollections later
a blur of emotion.
He had little knowledge of the millinery arts, and he needed none to see
tbe harmony���harmony like tbat of the
day be bad discovered a little while
ago. Her dress nnd lint and gloves and
parasol showed a pale lavender over-
lint like that which Lie had seen overspreading the western slope. (Afterward he discovered thnt tlie gloves she
wore that day were gray and that lier
hat was for the most part wlilte.i The
charm or fabric and tint belonging to
what she wore was no shame to her,
not being of primal importance beyond
herself. It wns but the expression of
lier daintiness nnd the adjunct of it.
She was tall, but if Joe could have
spokeu or thought of her as "slender"
be would have been capable or calling
her lips "red," in Which case lie would
not have been Joe and would have
been as far from the truth as ber lips
were from red or as bur supreme deli-
catcness was from mere slenderness.
Sbe was to pass him���so be thought���
and as she drew nearer bis breath
came faster.
'���Itemeniber! Across Main street
bridge lit noon!"
Was this tbe fay of whom the voice
bad warned him? With that, there befell him the mystery of last night. He
did not remember, but It was as If be
lived again dimly the highest hour of
happiness In a life a thousand years
ago; perfume aud music, roses, nightingales aud plucked hurpstrhigs. Yes.
something wonderful was happening
to bim.
She had stopped tlirect'y lu front of
him���stopped and stood lookiug at him
witli her clear eyes. He did not lift
his own to tiers. He had long experience of the averted gaze of women, but
It was uot only that. A great shyness
beset him. He had risen and removed
bis hut. trying (ineffectually) not to
clear his throat, his every day sense
urging upon him that she wns n stranger In Canaan who hnd lost her way���
the propjsterousricss of any one's losing
tbe way In Canaan hot Just uow ap-
peailng to bis every day sense.
"Cau 1���cau 1"��� be stammered,
blushing miserably, meaning to finish
with "direct you," or "show you the
way."
Then he looked at her again and saw
what seemed to him the strangest sight
of his life. The lady's eyes had filled
with tears���filled and overfilled.
"I'll sit bere on the log with you,"
she said. And her voice was the voice
which he had heard saying: "Remember! Across Main street bridge at
noon!"
"What!" be gasped.
"You dou't need to dust it!" she went
on tremulonsly. And eveu Uien he did
not kuow who she wus.

THERE was a silence, for if the
dazzled young man could have
spokeu nt all be could have
found nothing to say; and, perhaps, the lady would not trust her own
voice just then. His eyes had fallen

near bis face, be aught a very faint,
sweet, spicy emanation from it like
wild roses and cinnamon.
He did not know ber, but bis timidity aud a strange little choke In his
throat, the sudden fright which had
seized him, were uot caused by embarrassment. He aad no thought that
she was one be bad known, but could
not for tlie moment recall. There was
nothing of the awkwardness of that
No; he was overpowered by the miracle of this meeting. And yet, white
wltb marveling, be felt it to be so
much more touchingly a greater happiness than he bad ever known that at
first it was Inexpressibly sad.
At Inst he beard her voice again,
shaking a link;, u> she said;
"1 am glad you   emenibered."
"Remembered w tat?" he faltered.
"Tlien you don't?" sbe cried. "And
yet you came."
"Came Here, do you mean?"
"Yes���now, nt noon."
"Ah!' be hair v. uispured. unable to
speak aloud. "Was It you who

" 'Across

"Yes."
He tool; n deep brejith In the wonder
of it "Where was tt jou said that?"
he asked SJowly,    "Was it last ulght?"
"i)du't you even know that you came

��� ' steered.
"I���came to���to meet- you!"
She gave a little pitying cry, very
near a sob, seeing his niter bewilderment
"It wns like the strangest dream lu
tlie world." she snid. ' "You were at
tlie station when 1 came last night.
��� Y'ou don't remember nttnll?"
His eyes downcast, his face burning
hotly, lie could only shake his head.
"Yes." she continued. "I thought no
one would lie there, for 1 hnd not
written to say what train I should
lake, but when I stepped down from
tlie platform you were standing there,

And then you culled a carriage for me.
Itut you seemed so strange. Y'ou
couldn't tell bow you knew thnt I was
coming, and���.".nil them I���I understood
you weren't yourself. 'You were very
quiet, but I knew���I knew!' So I made
you get into the cijni.ifce���and���and"���
Shefnltered to a stop, and with thnt
shame itself brought him courage. He
turned and faced lier. She had lifted
her liandkerchiiil' to her eyes, but at
bis  movement  she dropped  it,  and  it
was not so much the delicate loveliness of her face that lie saw then as
tlie tears upon lier cheeks.
"All. poor boy!" she cried. "I knew!
I knew!"
"Yon���you took me home?"
"Yon told me where you lived," she
answered.   "Yes. I took you home."
"I don't understand." he stammered
huskily     "I dou't understand."
She leaned toward him slightly. looking at him with great intentness.
"You didn't know me last night,"
she said.    "Do you know me now?"
Kor answer he could ouly stare at
her. duml'ounded. He lifted nn unsteady band toward her appealingly.
but the manner of the lady as sbe saw
the truth underwent au April change.
She drew buck lightly. He was favored with tlie most delicious low
laugh be had ever beard, aud by some
magic whisk which she accomplished
there was uo sign of tears about her.
"Ah, I'm glad you're the same, Joe!"
she said. "Y'ou never would or could
pretend very well. I'm glad you're the
same, and I'm glad. I've changed,
though that isn't why you have forgotten me. You've forgotten me because you never thought of me. Perhaps I should uot have known you if
you had changed a great deal, as I
have."
He started, leaning back from her.
"Ah," she laughed, "that's it! That
funny little twist of the head you always liud. like a���like a���well, yon
know 1 must have told you a thousand
times thnt it was like a nice friendly
puppy. So why shouldn't I say so
now? And your eyebrows! When you
look like that nobody could ever forget you. Joe."
He rose from the log, and the nion-
Kt-el leaped upon him uproariously,
thinking they were to go home, belike
to food.
The lady laugbed again. "Don't let
him spoil my parasol. And I must
wain you now: Never, never tread on
my skirt! I'm very irritable about inch
things!"
He had taken three or four uncertain
backward steps from her. She sat before him, radiant with laughter, Qtt
loveliest creature he had ever teen,
but between him and this charming
vision there swept, through the warm,
scented June air, a veil of snow like a
driven fog, and half obscured In the
heart of It a young girl stood knee deep
in ft drift piled agaiust an old picket
gate, her black waterproor and shabby
skirt flapping in the blizzurd like torn
snils, one of her hands outstretched toward him, her startled eyes filed on
his.
"And, oh, how like yon," said the
lady; how like you and nobody else in
the world, Joe. to have a yellow dog!"
"Ariel Tabor!"
His lips formed the words without
sound.
"Isn't It nbout time?" she said. "Are
strung.' Indies In tbe habit of descending from trains to take you home?"
