EXPOSURE OF CRAFT
Keremeos   Correspondent    on
Shatford's Methods of Doing  Business.
Editor Star—Sir:   I have just been
reading in the Gazette of. Hedley  a  col-
. umn of guff written by Henry Nicholson,
of   Camp VMcKinney.      Mr.   Nicholson
would try to make  us   new   comers   be-
•^.aieve that X,. W. Shatford . was  a wonder,
Sfpd that-it is through him that we. are
enabled to stay in this country at all. I
may say that it" is different in my case to
the new comers' Mr. Nicholson j speaks
of. I was a Conservative in the east, but
I would be ashamed to vote for a man
who has proved himself to be so unworthy the confidence bestowed in him
at the last Provincial' election. 1 don't
know what reasons Mr. Nicholson may
have for singing Shatford's praises, but J
expect he has some good ones. 1 am
afraid if the fulfilment of any proinifies'
are hinged on the result of the next elec
tion, he will be disappointed. In fact
I think there will be quite a few disappointed ones, and tbey:well deserve to be.
I think that a man who gets $3 50 per
day to boss,; a road gang, who doesn/t-
know enough to pound sand, ought to be
disappointed,if he expects that soi;t' of
thing to codtinue.    $$$$$?!$%!$£$
The wagon • road from Keremeos to
Penticton is a disgtace to everybody
connected with it from Shatford down
I have heard that about $6,500 was spent
on a blind wagon road'up io-Mile Creek
without having a surveyor estimate of
the'c'ost of the undertaking being made
beforehand. Some people say that the
road will never be finished, as I:it will
. cost between #30,090 ami.$40,000 to.com
ple.te it. Others say that the only thing
to do ifow is to   elect-  Shatford -and   he
J will find moiiey enough to keep a few of
his pets employed for at least another
term. I have heard, but cannot vouch
for the truth of it, that there is a gang of
inen working this winter on a cribbing
just above' Hedley town. This work it
appears was held back for a winter's job
for a few of the faithful, and at the pres^
ent.the gang of nine men   accomplished
...about as much work as three good men
would do in the summer time, and. that
instead of starting the crib work where
they left off last winter, and the only
place where, there is the remotest neces
sity for the cribbing, they have spent,
some hundreds of dollars fencing in
property Belonging to the Hedley Town-
. site Co., of which bur worthy Mr. Shatford is president and owns the greater
part. I do not know that the fencing
will   enhance the price of  the,   property
very much, but the appearance of .ce-
curity that it lends may help to sell it to
advantage. Hedley seems to be getting
the lion's share of public money, and we
people cannot assign any other reason for
it than that Shatford's Limited corral
75 per cent, of the money spent on Government works between Keremeos and
Princeton.,
I may have some more to say later on
the same lines if any of Mr. Shatford's
ardent admirers call for it.
Thanking you.   Mr.   Editor,   for   the
space taken in your paper, I remain,
;;   Yours truly,
AN UNHAPPY SKINNER.
Keremeos, Dec   16. 1906:
A  CORPORATION  BOOSTER.
Editor Star—Sit: -Seeing that. the,
friends of Shatford, M. P. P., are in any
and every "way, through the Hedly Gazette (a paper partly owned by Shatford),
telling the public what he has done for
his district since he became a member of
the Provincial Governmenti'-'and believing there still are some things .that have
so far not be.en,mentioned or made public, therefore 1 will, with 3-our- permission,-state a few facts- concerning Mr.
Shatforcf's doings and then let the public
decide if everything that he ' has done
since lie'became a representative of this
district, have been in the interests of the
country, or,riot.. ,<  ■S5Ji-;iF?lpf<3
While I have not been in" this district,
as long as some, I have been here long
enough to know a skunk when I see one,
Without necessarily having to put imy
nose Where the perfumery comes from.
And the same will apply in this case. I
first met Mr. Shatford.in. 1895, and my
impression of him,, then was not "very-
favorable. I happened to beith his office
at Fairview, and during a 'conversation
he asked who:T t'houj*htdcme,.th§-most of
the business at I^pdley, himself or Mr. J
A.Schubert. .My answer. was that I
thought Schubert did; when he stated
that I was mistaken, as' he was selling a
lot of goods to Mr. M.K.Rogers, then
manager of the Yale: Mining Co. To
which my reply was, "yes, but. you are
hot getting any profit out of that." He
said he had, to do that in order to hold
that trade. :r''w
When Mr-' Shatford was elected to represent this district, I began to wonder
it he would represent the people's or the
corporations' interests. But as he was
favoring ■ Corporations while in private
life, J i ;did not think that he would
change, excepting for the worse, and I
believe that I can show that I was not
mistaken. Some time before his election,
several applications were made to the
Department of the Interior for some In
dian land situated near the town of Hedley and consisting of 194 acres. The
matter was turned over to the Provincial
Government to deal with.    M. K. Rodg-
DATE OF ELECTIONS
Near at Hand—Voter's List in
the Hands of the Printer
—Other Signs.
That the general elections are not far
off is evidenced by the activity of the
political parties. Perhaps the most significant indication of. the nearby elections is the movement of the Socialists.
*As is well known their representatives in
the legislature have bridged many an
awkward gulch for Premier McBride,
:chief of which was the C.P.R. land steal
fbif 86b 000 acres on a decayed charter of
ithe Columbia & Western. For violation
!of all Socialistic principles in voting for
that steal the Socialists get tips of elec-
'tions and other state secrets Indeed a
prominent Socialist remarks : "We know
'the date of the elections." The §0p^aJ^.
;candidate for the Similkameen, G. E
WTinkler, in obedience to his leader and
i comrade, "Premier" Hawthornthwajte,
broke ground last week with a. campaign
meeting at Keremeos. The SOcialist-
; Conservative party has nearly all/its candidates in the field. Liberals must now
'get in and drill until the last vo.te;is
polled. r '"'-'"'
While it is generally conceded that the
provincial general elections cannot long
be delayed one fact more than any other
indicates that dissolution is at hand—it is
this: The voters' lists are now in the
'hands of the printers. The lists have
tieen revised and are ready fprpublica
tion as soon as printed. Without a revised voters' list the general elections
could not be held. Some over zealous
government officials have been touting
for those who placed them in posit ion^S:
very natural thing, but which is:?usually
followed by decapitation when their
benefactors fall. All the signs are in the
political atmosphere that elections are
nigh, so be guided accordingly.
ALEX.  BELL, MERCHANT.
As will be noticed on page 2 of this
issue. Mr. Alex, Bell, general merchant,
has seen the wisdom of advertising in
the local paper, and the public are requested to watch his space, and learn of
the line of goods he carries. Mr. Bell
has just become installed in his fine new
store, where he has ample room to display bis-well assorted stock, which consists of groceries and provisions, boots
|and shoes, hardware, and gents' furnishings. Everything he carries is of the
best; and he.invites his' old customers and
the public generally to call and see him
and inspect his stock. In the rear of
the building is a. large store room, and
thet'basement contains a roomy and well
^ventilated apartment for storing perish-
able'goodr The store greatly enhances
the appearance of Vermillion.avenue.
. The postoffice-is also situated in the
building"and is larger and more convenient .than the'cramped quarters in the old
one. .        .-.....•'ti'j&j-i':

LIBERAL CONVENTION.
■ All the preliminary arrangements have
been- made for the Liberal convention to.
nominate a candidate for the forthcom-'
ing general . elections. The executive
committee oi the Similkameen District
Liberal Association recently convened at
Hedley and then decided to hold the
nominating convention at Keremeos on.
the 8th day of January next. Local Liberal associations will at once make choice
of their delegates, to the convention and
the unorganized sections will at meetings for the purpose also appoint delegates. At present there is little likelihood of more than one name coming
before the convention. The unanimity
of Liberals 'presages victory iu the Similkameen. &F™
KEREMEOS PROPERTY BONDED.
•A Spokane-company represented by C.
Voprtees and H. Stephens of that city
have acquired the Pitman property hear
Keremeos for A-siitai reported to be $50,-

payments. The new owners have already started an aggressive form of de-
development work which will be continued faring the life of the bond. The
Pit man property is situatedon Keremeos
Creek and only a couple of miles from
the Great Northern track. ,

last Saturday on business. He reports

when lie visited-.Vancouver, Seattle and

Spokane. Fred, says every place he
visited was booming and thinks it is
only a short time before this district will

Coast.      -Cviiv; -.  ,.; v|ptf
The Court of Revision and Appeal for
Princeton district has been further postponed to the 24th inst., as will be seen
by notice elsewhere.
Government Agent Hunter went doWn
to Hedley on Tuesday on  business  bent.
Cook & Co. had the misfortune to
lose a lot of' Xmas goods which were
destroyed by fire in an express car on
the C. P. R. To make mr.tters worse a
freight wagon carrying goods for this
company from Nicola, the first of the
week, was dumped into Otter Lake, and
everything lost.
A meeting of the Princeton Liberal
Association will be held in the office of
this paper next Thursday evening at 8
o'clock for the purpose of appointing
delegates to the convention at Keremeos.

SAXURDAV, DEC. 22/ 1906.
CHRISM AS.
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old, fatniliar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat -Jv'rX'-.^~
Of peace on earth, good will to men !
Memorable is the   institution   of
Christmas.    It is a festival   of   the
Christian Church observed  on   December 25 as the anniversary .of the(
Saviour's birth established by Pope'
? yelesphorus,   who died A. D. 138,
and throughout the subsequent his?-,
tory ot   the  church   the   day   has
been <one of the most noted of Christian solemnities.    In   olden times,
confounded with   the   Epiphany, it
was celebrated  in   the   mouths   pf
April and May....... In the fourth century, however, St. Cyril of, Jerusafc
em  succeeded   in   obtaining   from
Pope Julian I. an order   for   ascertaining the  exact, day cf   Chr.i|t!|
nativity.    The great theologians of
the time took as a  basis the  table$
of the eensoFS;ih   the   archives   oi
Rome,'  and   estauiished   the    day
which has prevailed ever "since.
Christmas giving has long been
and will probably continue a chief
characteristic of She day's observ-
anfce. By such means do love ana
friendship find happy expression'.
But with it all let usnot';forget'tbe
first great Christmas giit, which1
came from the Father of Eights
With whom there is neither variableness nor shadow of turning—a
gift which is ours not only ior all
time but for all eternity.
Of all the days of the year, Christmas is the best on which to turn
back the leaves of life and lay aside
the wringled spoils of 'age. This
day marks the anniversary of the'
birth of the Prince of babies; the
great lover of little children. So,
let every parent let go of care for
one day and go to the little
folks, enter into their sports .and
claim an interest in all their affairs,
of which they have so many of
magnitude that day. k    Professor Laughlin,  of the Uni-
The Star wishes its readers'.,a versify of Chicago, told the mem-
Merry Xmas and a Happy New ['b^rs of the Industrial Association
Year, and let the keynote of our [of America some solid' truths on
Christmas be love—"peace on earth,: Socialism, declaring that men,^ljy-
good will to men." 'ing   themselves  with it,   admitted
The Conservative pressure making a great  howl   about  purity   of
politics  and   point to   the   corral
practices  used  to  elect ..the   Hon.
Mr. Hy-P?an.    That unfair;^cWM|s
were usecCvtfi|'eIect IiU^sftt)  be 5*6-
gretted, but the Liberals we're mere*
ly fighting the devil with fire.    Although there   was..not a   tithe   of
evidence produced..^i-la^jsn /the
personal reputation of Mr. Hyman,
he took the manly and praiseworthy
course and resigned.
We would ask our  readers to  go;
back with us to the lasV''Provincial?
general election, and  see what' the
"first    Conservative     Government
British Columbia ever had," did to
introduce that much   talked   about
and much desired element into British Columbia   politics.    The   Conservative candidate  for   Ferni'e was
a   gentleman   named   W. R.   Ross.
The McBride Government appoint-'
ed as returning' officer Mr. Alexah'-'
:der, the  business    partner   of-" Mr.;
Ross. '. At the election   then    held'
the  Liberal  candidate   received   a'
majority of the Votes cast, but when
the returning officer made bis   official count he threw out several ballots and declared   his  law  partner,
the defeated Conservative candidate,
elected.
The Liberal candidate applied
under the statute for a recount before the' County Court judge, but
this action was frustrated in the
meantime by the returning officer
shipping the ballot boxts to Victoria and the McBride Government
refusedTo give them up.
It will be remembered the Mi-
Bride Government were hanging in
the balance, two of his ministers
had been defeated, the Socialists
had not as yet been boughtvjohn
Houston had bolted, arid'trieir very
existence depended on that Fernie
seat, and that seat they must have
a. any cost, no matter what high
aid lofty principles were trampled
tinker foot.
This then is the manner in.which
thi "first Conservative Government
British Columbia ever had" started
out to do business, and it is along
these that they have been doingJL'it
ever since. Tbe Prt-miejJs chasing
himself up and down the country

ers stated that he wanted the land for a
Site on which to build a smelter and that
he was ready to start construction as
soon as the land was secured.
Mr. Fred. M. Wells wanted   a  portion
of the land to be u>ed iu connection with
the workings of   the   Kingston   Mining-
Co., which he represents.    That was the
time when Mr.   Shatford, M.P.P.,   began
to show his colors.    His representatives
at this place, as well as his  friends, took
a very active part in circulating  for   sig-
'    nature^ a petition asking the Government
to grant to Mr. Rodgers the whole of the
tract of land in quetion, and  as   nearly
everyone was in Rodger's  employ or un-
. der   some   obligation     to    Shatford,   of
course   Mgnalunrs _ were   easily secured.
The result was that Rodgers got a   clear
deed front the Government to 194   acres
.   of land that had cost him aboii.t #2,000, to
secure.    The said   land   is   easily worth
-   one hundred dollars an acre   as fruit   or
agricultural land, to   say  nothing,   about
its possible value for a smelter or   town-
site.    Mr  R idgers built  a fence around
his land aud planted fruit   trees  and   began farming.    So much for his   promise.
He had the  land  and   could   do   as   he
pleased with it.    And the  property owners in Hedley had their property and are
likely to own   it   for   some   time.    The
very fact that a  new  townsite  could   be
. plotted on this land is sufficient  to   pie
. vent any deals   being   made.    And   the
mining industry has  suffered   equally as
;'inuch.      What   was Shatford,   M. P. P ,
doing?    Why did he not see   to   it   that
other ulining companies  had   an   equal |
chance to have ground, to  operate  from
■and on which to reduce their ores?   Why
'did he not protect the.interests  of  those
that bought lots from   him   in   Hedley?
First he sold them the lots, then he took
the   value   of  the   lots   away, which is
;worse   than   highway   robbery.'    When
you are relieved of 3-our valuables on the
road, you   know   they are   gone, but   in
this case you do not  know   for   certain,
and the result is   that   you.  are   paying
taxes on property that  may or   may not
be of any value. Yours.etc.,

and have been  for a year past allowed to
be run   within  a  couple of hundred feet
and in plain sight of some of the principal hotels  and  within a few feet-of residences and the main thoroughfare in this
city, while a house situated outside of the
city limits and over a  quarter of a mile
fiotti any habitation has   time and again
been ordered closed ?    Abput four  years
ago.a house which is now i*i; the favored
district  was   ordered   to   be   closed   on
account  of being  in   a too public place,
and the  owner  had   to sell out at whatever  price    he   could   get.     What; has
brought about the change?    Can it bfe on
account  of   the    Townsite  Co'y?    After
selling all  their  lots in'that oart of the
town  are they less interested in wha,t is
going on   there   while  they still have a
lot  of properly   in   the other direction ?
Or, is it  on   account  of  some  personal
spite?    Or, is  it   because one or more of
the favored houses a'Ke partly, owned by a
prominent  church 'member   and  a few
dimes may find   the way into the contribution box     Almost  every 4fowri on the
American   continent   has what is known
as a restricted district', but  usually those
districts are situated'.as far  from business
houses  and   residences .as possible.    But
the  powers that  be  in   Hedley~seem. to
wish to have the restricted district in the'
very centre of the town.   I will conclude
by  stating  tliatll came to this town and
made my home here long before any one
of you   did  and  I have in the past done
my   best  to leave  other people's affairs
alone.    That  is  considerable 'more than
the majority of the people in Hedley can
say. Yours truly,

TBOUBLE  IN SIGHT.
A San  Francisco   despatch   of  recent
date  says:     Ed.   Mells,  a young   man,
sent a swift right-hander to   the  jaw   of
Tokuchika, a Japanese- driver, When   the'
latter refused to clear the way, and in   aj
moment a hundred Japanese and  twenty
Americans   gathered   for   a   race   fight.
"Come   on,"   yelled   Mells,    "I'll   lick,
every jap in the crowd."    As a   general
mix-up seemed about to ensue the police
interiered.,   \   As   an   officer   led   Mells
away,   the  Japanese   remark'ed   loudly,'
'San Francisco will  soon   be  controlled
by the Japanese."    "The deuce  it will,"
yelled the American, and the bystanders
had to stop another fight.    The  affair   is
considered significant.
WORLD'S FAIR FOR   FRISCO.
San Francisco proposes to have a
world's fair in 1913. Several enterprising citizens have formed a corporation-
tche known as the Pacific Ocean Exposition Co., which plans to give a mammoth fair in 1913 to" commemorate the
400th anniversary of the discover}- of the
Pacific Ocean by Balboa, and the completion of the Panama-Canal. The joining of the two ideas is , deemed by the
promoters especially appropriate, as tt
was after rirossing the isthmus that the
navigator first looked upon the Pacific.
The-organization is capitalized at $5,000,-
000.
IRON ORE.
There is on exhibition in I. C. Barnes'
store a large lump of hematite. Mr:
Barqes has a claim Of this metal on Ellis
creek and is now having5 development
work done. The metal 'exists in such
quantities and in such a pure state that
Mr. Barnes believes he has what will
prove one of the, b^st iron mines of the'
continent. Hermatite comprises 70 per
cent iron and 30 per cent.v.oxygen and is
especially valuable in the manufacture of
steel.—Penticton Press.
TEACHERS' CONVENTION.
