Water" in the Fraser River  this year. Owing to the cool backward spring many predict there  Will be high water this year. This  (paper is in a position to state, on  no less an authority than Mr. W.  ElluV't, known throughout the  Valley as "Bill EMoitt" that there  will he no high water this year in  the Fraser River. Mr. Elliott  haa won several new hats in the  past on his predictions as to there  "being no high water, and he Informs this paper that the residents  along the banks of the mighty  Fraser need have no fear  Of ba4 results from high .water  J{e. says he,.could have told,us all  abqut it last fall.-. For over two  weeks there has 'been no snow,.on  the ground in the Cariboo '������������������country. "Mr. 'Elliott (has la theory,  Which has worked out correctly  fq'r- the past twenty years without  fail, and he is willing to wager a  new hat with any man that the  Fraiser River will not become ob-  titreporouB this year. His theory  is not divulged by this paper.  Several old time residents also  aay that as there was a new moon  on Sunday last with but little water in the Fraser at that time all  the danger will be past before the  next new .moon.and without damage un-eas there is a south-west  ���������wind at. the time of the full moon  when there' is the' most danger,  DROWNING  AT NICOMEN  (From- Fraser Valley Record)  On Wednesday evening the 24tb  Charles Davies, firman on the rock  crusher, at Nicomen,while, bathing  in the creek at Nicomen was acci ���������  dentally drowned. He with some  companions were 'bathing when  Davies got beyond his depth. He  could not swim, (and although his  companions made a desperate attempt to save him they were unsuccessful. ���������  . '   i  ii  The inquest was 'held on Thursday morning, the jurv bringing in  a   verdict   of   accidental   death,  He was buried On Thursday even  ing at ,Nicomen the burial service  being conducted by J. McAlwin.  The mourners were W. Davies, the  borther of deceased, and his comrades.  The deceased was'born near Man  Chester, England (and had been in  British Columbia ifoi about four  years, formerly residing at Revelstoke.  Mr. McArthur is holding classes  for advanced work in thes chool on  Saturday. - -  Mrs. Shepperd from Vancouver  spent Sunday last with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elliot.  Mr. W. Black formerly of Abbots  ford paid us ia   visit on Tuesday.  Miss Enima McCallum who has  been visiting with her uncle and  aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. McCai-  lum, returned to Vancouver "on  Tuesday last,  Mr. J. E. Geary"_returned this  morning from, Steamboat Moiuil-  u.iii where he speni a' week or, leu  days days looking info what the  district would have .in store for  him should he centre his interests  there instead of 'going to Alaska  where he has already 'spent sonic  time. ". .  Mr, Geary reports that there i3  no snow on the trailhetween Hope  and Steamboat; There, are-also a  large number of imen going, in and  aim out over the trail;daily, many  of whom nsver reach" Steamboat,  while others after reaching Steam  boat are tiredand after remaining  a few. days to irest. return to  Hope. He believed these' , latter  are the fellows who attempt to  give the d'-strlct a blackeye. by  seating that the country is all stak  ed. There is-plenty .of ground yet  remaining unstaked back from the  trail.  Mr. Geary spent. Jour, days out.  in the mountains hack from Steam  boa,'- and staked a number - ' of  claims for himself land friend's; He  believes he has struck something  .pretty good -and hojies to do-  some"' asbessment "work'this summer to be more siire^what he has  He. believes he1 ough to know.good  mineral when.he sees it, and,while  ���������th3i|3i3 ..no .gold .hatngjing on .the  trees along ths -trail or dropping  uiC tha aidvi of th? cliffs as some  fellows-who |go evidently .expect  there   is  good (mineral there.  In conversation with Mr. Geary  this morning he saidthat while digging in the gravel in the _townsite  this ��������� week colors of a very encouraging   nature   were 'found.  Lightning Creek, -some f.'fLeon  miles further south from Steamboat gave promise nf bl'ing wed  prospected this isummer, land report ha.s it that it may .be even  better ' tham   Steamboat.  Mr. Geary thinks enough of the  future of the district to purchase  a number of pack horses and  ma.ke Hope his headquarters for  the summer. He will move his fam  to Hope in the course of a f e .v  weeks.  The price pa.'d for packing over  the trail from Hope to Steamboat  is 10 cents per pound: and 5 centb  per  po^nd up from the trail.  Asked as to ths route from Chilli wack to Steamboat. 'Mr. Gaarj  said he believed th2 e>sist way was  in over the Hope trail.:/  "Steamboat may not-boom much  this year, 'but mark my word <the  district is a good one" is the opinion of bur friend, Mr. Geary.  B. C.E. R. STEAM SHOVEL  The hill north of theto wn on the  Clayburn road is bding cut down  by the B. C. Electric steam shovel  By arrangements Imade .between  the company and the government  this work is being done. The company is using the gravel for ballast on their track between there  and Chilliwack, while the cutt'ng  of tbe hill makes it all'the better  as a public 'highway. The mutual arrangement '/appears to redound to the benefit of bo.h parties and the public.  Miss Essie Shortreed of Vancouver spent a few'days at her homers re this week.  WELCOMED THEIR HOME  COMING   JOYFULLY.  ��������� On Monday evening the !',boysr  went out to, .give their friend ,Mr.  Carroll and his (bride a welcome  They advanced towards the front  door and giving the 'signal were  admitted' to the confidence of the  master benedict, ��������� who recognised  the password of the s'erenaders and  amid the tinkling of the bells and  other   harmonious instruments  commanded them to bide a wee  until ,he consulted his bank manager as to the best mode of procedure.

"THE   BREAK IN   THE, CHAIN"  British   newspapers,   and   noi   a  good   many   Canadians,   are   quite  open in an expression of their fear  that   the   great   unpeopled  region  lying   north   of the Great Lakes is  a   point of weakness in the Dominion   as a   nation and may result  in the development of two Canadas  which   may   'not   always   work' in  harmony with each, other.   One of  the   la-test   writers  to express fear  on  this point is Mr.S tephen Lea-  cock   who   writes   about it  in  the  National   Revie-w.   If .this   is .the  case, there is no help for.it.   There  is not the slightest use in fighting  with   geography.       The        -Great  Lakes  are where nature put them  and  so  it> Hudson's Bay. But is    it  Uu ctiiseV   The Canadian Pacific already    passes   (across   this   region.  Thi' National Trancontinental Rail  way   is   in  course   of  construction  and  will soon be opened through  this vast unpeopled area. The Canadian      Northern    is    to   be  built  through   it.   North  a>nd  south rail  ways  are being ipushed into it. .It  is known that there is a   vast area  of land there 'Suited for agriculture  Almost daily  w |e,;hear of new. dis--  coveries of valuable minerals there  and the country has not' been one  tcnih   prospected.   There  is .much  good   timber;   there .are inexhaust  ible  fisheries. . There [must ,be millions upon millions of acres of forest   suitable   for  the  manufacture  of  pulp   and   paper.   Mr. Leacock  asserts   that  the  settlement of the  uilicu   bulges   proceeded  steadily  from  east to  west and  that there  is   now   a   continuous  range      of  satlled    communities ' aacross   thi.  Continent.   But then he has forgot  ten his history.   For years the Pacific   Coast   of   the   United   Scales  was separated from the Mississippi  valley   by  what used to  be cailed  the   vj-reac American Desert. If hi  will turn to the records of .the Un-  nea States Congress he w^ll find  Mr. Benton proposing iliac some  point not very far west of ihe  Missouri should be, selected and a  tiuaicUie of the god Terminus be  erected, there to signify that the  limit of the expansion of the_Un..t-  eu States had ;been reached.
