II K D L K Y.   B.C.  Grand Union  Hotel .  HEDLEY, B. C.  HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  A  Work Train   Runs   Away on   Grade  From   Motson  and   Pile-up  Occurs at Oroville.  On Thursday-,, morning last the  worst wreck that has yet occurred on  the V. V. &'E. took place in the Oroville yard. A heavy work train loaded  with steel rails, ties and hridge timbers was hound for the end of the  track. On coining down the steep  grade from Molson this train got beyond control, owing to derangement  of the air brake connections which  prevented the application of any brake  control from the engine. The driver  on finding that the air connections  were cut started back over the train  to aid in applying the hand brakes,  but with the violent swaying of the  train from the tremendous momentum  attained he was thrown off and badly  injured.  It was unfortunate that he did not  tie down the whistle on his engine so  as to give warning in Oroville that a  runaway train was coining. Had he  done this a clear track would have  been left. As it was, the engine of  the track-layer was standing on the  main track in the station yard along  with some fiat cars, and on top of this  the runaway Avork train, which managed to keep the track piled up. The  engineer was off his engine cleaning  up, but as his own engine was   blow-  During the week, the member for  .Similkameen has had one'of the few  passages at arms which have occurred  between members on the opposing  sides in the present session. Mr. Shatford had occasion to meet the leader  of the Opposition, one of the keenest  in debate in the House. The member  for Similkameen had the satisfaction  of acquitting himself with credit and  putting to rout Mr. Macdonald, the  vaunted terror in the Opposition side  of the House.  The question involved was a personal  one, and dated from the last election  campaign when the leader of the Opposition had the bad taste to take advantage of the fact that Mr. .Shatford  had been called away from a session  of the legislature to go to California  to be present at what was at the time  expected to he the death bed of his  father to charge that this was hut a,  hoax, in'order that the- member for  Similkameen should avoid a. vote in  the legislature. It was but natural  that a man of the character of Mr.  Shatford should feel this very keenly.  He accordingly took the occasion to  dress the leader of the Opposition down  for his despicable act.  Mi-. Macdonald replied two days later  but the member for Similkameen did  not let his opponent take advantage of  any subterfuge, hut insisted upon the  question fairly before the members  and proving that the leader of the Opposition had been guilty of acting anything but fair towards the member  for Similkameen.  roads kept in repair to his farm, and  all the otlier advantages of civil government.   ��������� r.  In his own district Mr. Shatford said  the small farmers were weir satisfied  with the rate imposed, and knew that  the government would, if possible, reduce it still further.  He felt- satisfied that if a bill were  introduced into the legislature by the  government to exempt from taxation  small .farmers altogether there would  be opposition to it from the Liberals,  who would say the government ought  to give them a bonus (laughter.)  Mr, Shatford said that he well knew  what the small farmer had to contend  with and they had his deepest sympathy. He felt satisfied, however, that  the government would do the best fortius deserving class.  Mr. Shatford said he would have  liked to have seen more money appropriated iVn'his district. More money  was really required, but he felt that  he had been treated fairly and had  been given a, proportionate grant.  Next year he hoped that there would  be increased appropriations, and he  expected then proportionate increases  for Similkameen. There were roads  which ought to have been attended to  this,coining year but they would have  to stand over until next year.  It might be asked what development  was there in the Similkameen that  called for this increase in the appropriations for the district. He could inform the House that'-there was. Very  rapid development in his district. The  coast cities and the coast districts had  been fed by the interior in the past.  This was to be discontinued, for the  future. The member for Alberni had  been incorrectly informed as to the  mileage of roads in the Similkameen.  He would tell him that there was between 700 and 800 miles of road in the  district. Similkameen had not received more than it was entitled to.  As long as he was in the House, Mr.  Shatford said he hoped to receive a  square deal. '  He said he was glad to see the appropriation for an irrigation commission. He would suggest, however,  that the government instruct the commission to get information relative to  some of the great schemes which had  been carried out elsewhere on the continent. By so doing, a, comprehensive  report could be brought in.  COAL MINERS    :  STRIKE AGAIN  Men  Quit Work o in   Crow's  Nest Coal Mines.

The fireman was in his cab, and  crushed under the wreckage. When  he was found it was seen that one of  the iron brace-rods under a flat car  was driven into his head which was  resting on a tie, and that he was still  living. The only way to release him  was to cut this rod with a hack saw;  which must have caused the victim  untold torture. He spoke after being  removed from the wreck, but died,  shortly afterwards.  Five men in all were injured of whom  it was expected that most would die.  A wrecking gang arrived on the.  scene next day and cleared away the  wreckage. Of the two engines in the  wreck one was practically demolished,  but the other was only slightly  injured.

HOTEL  PENTICTON  Headquarters for Tourist Travel.  Rates Moderate.  A. Barnes, Prop.  Penticton, 13.0.  J. Nichol, who was held for several  weeks suspected of being implicated in  the Zimmerman murder case, and remanded several times, was up again  on Saturday last, when the evidence  provided to connect-srim with the case  was not deemed sufficiently strong by  the bench to warrant sending it up to  a higher court, and he was accordingly acquitted.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., has been  called east to the bedside of his father  at Hubbard's Cove, N. S. A telegram  was received stating that another  stroke of paralysis had occurred, and  that no hope of recovery from it was  held out by the attending physicians.  His other brothers, W. T., S. A. and  B. A., were also summoned and have  gone east with him.  and the Government was subjected to  a good deal of criticism by successive  speakers on the opposite side for the  large appropriations to the Similkameen district. It became necessary  for the member for the district towards  the close of the debate to put the  matter clearly. He showed splendid  powers of debate and attracted the  attention of the House to the district  which he represented.  Mr. Shatford congratulated the  Speaker upon attaining to the high  and honorable! position he has been  elected to fill. He also congratulated  the mover and seconder of the address  in reply to the speech of His Honor  the Lieutenant Governor.  Proceeding then to the public question, he pictured the situation in the  province when the first Conservative  government came into power. The  finances were in a wretched condition.  The credit of the province was gone.  The government of Premier McBride  had found the banks closed to them.  Now this had changed. The credit of  B. C. had been restored until it was  now second to no other province in the  Dominion of Canada.  Mr. Shatford said that there had  been a- lot of talk from the Opposition  side on the subject of reduction of taxation. It had been repeatedly urged  by the Liberals that the government  had not lived up to the promises given  before election. They had contended  that the Conservative candidates had  promised to reduce the taxation upon  small farmers if returned. He could  inform the House that no such promise was given by the Conservative  candidate in Similkameen.  Mr. Shatford said that when the  government found it necessary to increase taxation it avoided placing any  part of it on the working man. The  business interests were made to bear  the increased taxation. It was promised that as soon as possible the taxes  would be reduced. That promise has  been lived up to.  The small farmers in the country  were well satisfied with the conditions.  He paid probably not more than $6.00  a year in taxes and got a free school,  Continued on Vafrc Four.  ALL WHEELS ARE MOVING  Daly   Reduction Company's Works the  Scene of General Activity  This week sees things in full blast  around the above works in Hedley.  There is ample water to keep all  machines humming and a corresponding air of satisfaction is reflected in  the faces of manager and heads of departments.  The over-hauling which has been  given to different parts is having the  desired effect in smoothness and increased effiicieney.  A peep into the enlarged and re-arranged assay office affords a sample of  the improvements effected. The new  addition in which the samples are prepared, is laid out for much greater rapidity and accuracy. The floor is of  cement with iron sampling area in the  centre. Three grinders are at work,  the last of which leaves the sample  ground to almost impalpable fineness.  Not a speck of dust from this room  gets into either the furnace room or  chemical laboratories. The old bucking board, now obsolete, and other antiquated equipment used by Lamb is  ready to be donated to the metallurgical historical society when such an organization eventuates. The furnace  in the furnace room has been re-built  and can be regulated to a nicety. Ample muffle room is provided to do a-  large volume of work.  The capacity of the whole office has  been increased from about 30 or -iO  samples to 400 samples per day, and  the cost to secure this improvement  looks to be toifling in proportion to  the benefit derived.  Two assayers, Messrs Oake and Williams are busy on a big pile of samples.  During the year Mr. Ross intends  keeping the assay office going to its  full capacity, for he is determined to  know exactly what everything is  worth.  The long-dreaded misfortune has occurred, and news has come to hand  that work is almost suspended in the  coal camps of Alberta and the Crows  Nest in B.C.  No general strike has been called,  but the. nien have simply quit work.  By this way they expect to evade the  penalties provided for in the Lemieux  Act. The first official move that the  union made that could be construed as  meaning a declaration for a strike, or  the adoption of strike methods, has  been the posting up of the following  notice: "All miners, mine laborers  and other workmen are requested to  keep away from the coal mines in Alberta and the Crow's Nest Pass district-  in British Columbia. Dispute pending.  By order district executive board, U.  M. W. of A." -  This it is believed can be construed  into a recognition on the part of the  union that the steps already taken Inquiring work is virtually the existence  of strike conditions, and as such is a  violation of the Lemieux Act.  Smelter men and railway superintendents see in it the beginning of a  very serious state of affairs which will  cripple the season's work in the mining and smelting industries as well as  in freight haulage on the railways.  This last contingent means virtually  the exertion of a paralyzing effect upon  the.lumber industry and all others.  To us in the Similkameen it means  further delay in railway construction.  Had the V. V. <fc E. rushed matters  during the past year and a half and  had their tracks completed to Princeton they might now have the advantage of other coal supply for their  engines and not be depending wholly  upon the Crow's Nest mines.  V. V. & E. SURVEYORS DISBAND.  Engineer   Milliken's   Gang    Break   Up  Camp Last Week���������Public Unable  to Understand Import.  In last issue, reference was made to  a rumor that Milliken's gang of surveyors, who had been at work on the  V. V. & E. since last summer, had received orders to disband. This was  confirmed when on Friday uight the  gang appeared in Hedley on their way  out to Midway.  It is only a fortnight since Chief Engineer J. H. Kennedy was through,  and at that time there was no intimation of any probability of a move of  this kind ; for while it is generally understood that their work is completed  so far as location of the route from  Keremeos through Hedley to Princeton is concerned, it has also been understood that most of their work for  the past month or so has been that of  marking time until construction on  this portion of the route should begin,  when there would be abundance of  work for them in cross-sectioning, and  other engineering connected with construction.  The reason for the move is not apparent, and so far as known nothing  has been given out as to where they  will be sent after reaching Midway.  The whole circumstance certainly  doesn't look good to dwellers in the  upper Similkameen, some of whom interpret the move as indefinite postponement of construction.  During the the railway discussion in  the Commons in June, 1905, the representations made as to the time within  which the. Company would have the  road completed through the Similkameen, certainly gave no inkling as to  any probability of so little progress-  being made at this length of time, and  those who were led to make preparations as the result of the representations then made, have many of them  found to their cost that they had been  far too credulous.

That-clause specifies  that  "no clergyman of any denomination shall be eligible for   the   position-of. superintendent, inspector,   teacher,   or trustee."  These petitions   then   must  bear   the.  interpretation that   ihe   clerical   petitioners aspire to some or  all   of  these  positions: but will it be   a  wise   thing  for the people of'this province to yield  to their demands and  permit  the   insertion of the thin edge of the   wedge  which may launch us upon a   troubled  sea of religious controversy in  connection with our schools?    Everything is  now smooth sailing,   and the  clause  which they want removed was  inserted   by   level-headed, far-seeing    men  who sought to shut out the very ills to  which these, mis-guided men now seek  most wantonly to expose us.     Canada  has hail trouble, enough in some of the  provinces as the result of clerical   interference in school matters, and British   Columbia does well to say beforehand to all would-be  religious  disturbers   be they protcstant or   papal    in  their beliefs, that they must not touch  our school system even with   a-forty-  foot pole.     Wo want no Sbarottis   in  British   Columbia   and one.   brand   of  him may accomplish as much harm as  another; for when good old .'John   Milton   said  "new   presbyter   is   but old  priest writ large"   be showed that the  Crouiwellinn zealot was but a  type  of  those   who    might   come   after,   and  they're coming.  There are several features in connection with the presentation of these  petitions that- are worthy of note.  One is the simultaneous receipt of  them at Victoria showing preconcerted action and the adoption of trades  union methods. Evidently the unknown Sbaietti in this connection has  been playing the role of walking delegate and organizer. Then the movement follows so closely upon that of  the Lord's Day Act that it would seem  that the. apathy which enabled them  to secure the passing of that Act has  apology.

The work done on the road at  Brushy bottom Avill be- completed tonight. Whenever the water gets  high enough to cause backing up  from the river, the old road at Brushy  bottom was a pit that had no bottom,  brushy or any other kind. The road  has been changed so as to keep the  gravel bank all around this basin.  Different fishing parties that have  been out state that there are abundance of trout in Twenty mile creek  but that as a rule they are very small,  and it is difficult to keep within the requirements of the law which forbids  catching any under six inches in  length. One party states that for  every fish he could catch over six  inches in length, ho had to throwback  two or three that were under six."  Many of the residents of the Similkameen Avill learn with regret of the i  death of Miss Mamie Corrigan who j  some three years ago visited her uncle '  .1. W. AVirth in Hedley, and her aunt  Mrs. Daly in Keremeos. She had a  severe attack of lagrippe at Hope, and  this later developed into acute rheumatism and rheumatic fever. She was  taken to Mission City by Dr. Stuart iu  the hope that the change might be  beneficial, but she died two days after  her arrival there. She leaves a heartbroken father, five brothers and one  sister to mourn her untimely demise.  A young fellow from Anarchist  mountain stole a horse near Oroville  and rode up to Kelowna where he sold  him. When he got back to Washington they nabbed him. He then made  the cold-blooded proposition that if  they Avould give him four days he  Avould bring the horse back. He then  proceeded to Kelowna to steal the  horse from the man to Avhom he had  sold him, and did so; but he only got  back as far as Penticton with the  horse when constable Tooth took him  in tow.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  Coiil'i'nued from I'age One  entire valley of tile Similkanieen together with the southern Okanagan  was well adapted for fruit giowing.  Peaches, grapes and ahuonds were  readily grown, as well as the hardier  apple, of which Price Ellison had given  an example. If the Premier would hut  ' call a summer session he (Mr. Shatford)  would show the nn'inhers the peaches,  grapes. ������.vc, which Siinillvameen could  produce, similar to the way iu which  Air. Ellison had exhibited apples." lie  would, moreover, have a supply sufficient tn go round tlie members.  Tliere were thousands* of acres of the  best fruit lands in America in the Sim-  illcameen. Settlers from the colder j  parts, as Manitoba, anxious to get  away from the rigorous winters, were,  anxious to come in and enjoy the cli- [  , mate of his district which was not surpassed anywhere else in-Anierica. The  land was .capable from its richness* to  produce practically anything.  In tho past, the holding of large  blocks here, interfered with settlement.  This was how being overcome. Companies-had bought out some of these  large holdings and had -subdivided  them and thousands would be able to  make homes on the lands ���������formerly  held by a few.  He lioped to see thousands of contented people living in these valleys  producing fruit for a market which  was unlimited, the Northwest.  Transportation facilities had -been  lacking, but he was glad to be able to  inform the House that these facilities  were soon coming. He. did not pretend  that Siinilkameen was the only district  where fruit could be grown in the  province. Nowhere else could it be  produced of belter' quality and with  better  returns.  PROPERTY  Is A  Good,  Safe   Investment  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the. supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain,' on which is situated the famous " Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

Simiikameen  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development workj to be one of the richest  gold, cop2)er and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed'  Coast-Kootenay Railway :   and with the advent of this road,-  which is assured in  the  near future,  it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots,-"will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.

If that were done the expenditure'on roads could he made to better  advantage.   '  1 But Similkameen was not a fruit  growing district alone, he said. Some  of the best mines of America were in  his district. Owing to, the lack of railway facilities in the past, the industry  could not be developed as could have  been hoped for, A line of railway was  now being built which would allow  , some .of the mines being developed.  The province, would soon hear from  the district as a producer of coal, copper and other minerals, in proportions  which would make the district famous  as a mining one. -     '  Mr. Shatford expressed satisfaction  with the appropriation for the prevention of forest fires. He thought this  was a necessary step to take.  Before closing, the member for Sim-  ilka meeh said he had a personal matter which he would trouble the House  with. He would have, taken this up  earlier in the session but the leader of  the Liberal-Socialist party was not  present. He. had explained his absence  on account of being sick. He hoped  he had fully recovered now.  The leader of, the Opposition had,  during the campaign, made a statement on the public platform that he  *( Mr. Shatford) had dodged the vote on  the Columbia and Western bill. Mr.  Shatford said he had not been present  at the meeting but he was credibly informed that the member for Rossland  had said that he, Mr. Shatford, had  manufactured a story that his father  was sick in order to avoid the vote on  this  bill.  He would tell the leader of the Opposition now that this statement was  not true. He was surprised that a  man whom he had considered above  making use of such tactics should have  tried by the means which the member  for Rossland adopted to have misled  the people of Similkanieen.  That the attempt had not succeeded  was proved by the fact that he ( Mr.  Shatford) had obtained a larger majority at the elections than  the  member  For Those Who  Invest Now  ���������    '       i ,.

Mr. Macdonald, later in the debate,  undertook to reply to Mr. Shatford by  offering an explanation of the incident.  He said that Mr. Shatford had come  to him with a telegram and asked for  a pair. He had complied with the request because it was represented that  Mr. Shatford's father was dying. Another member on the Government side  had told him that Mr. Shatford went  away simply to dodge the vote on the  Columbia ������.v, Western bill.  Mr. Shatford, as soon as the leader  of the Opposition closed his speech,  was on his feet. He wanted Mr. M.-c-  donuld to name the member who told  him that he ( Mr. Shatford ) had gone  away to dodge a vote. He challenged  Mr. Macdonald to name any member  who had said such a thing.  Mr. Macdonald failed to make good  and allowed the question to remain  unansweied.  The member for Similkameen denied  that he ever showed Mr. Macdonald a  telegram.  Mr. Macdonald then tried in a lawyer's fashion to overawe his opponent.  He asked Mr. Shatford if he denied  that he had shown him a telegram  when he asked him for a, pair.  Mr. Shatford quickly returned the  answer that he never showed the leader of the Opposition a telegram, and  further he added that he did not ask  the leader of the Opposition for a pair.  He asked the Liberal whip, Dr. King,  for  it.  Beaten on one point, Mr. Macdonald  tried another turn. He wanted to  know if Mi*. Shatford denied that he  asked him (Mr. Macdonald) for a, pair.  Mr. Shatford said he never asked  Mr. Macdonald for a pair, and the  question was allowed to drop, the  leader of the Opposition having derived little satisfaction in attempting  to reply to Mr. Shatford.  20 "        "      wheat hay  50 " Loose wheat hay, in stack  ���������M " Oats  20 " Chopped oats and barley  7 " Wheat, fall and spring  10 " Bald barley  *l " Kail rye  Market  Prices.
