No additions  have yet been made to the first ten  miles-of steel, but it is expected; it was  stated to-day that the contractors,  Macdonell, Gzowski & Co. will recommence this part of the construction  work later in the spring. At the present time the grading on; the twenty  miles remaining of the thirty-mile  contract is being pushed ahead as  rapidly as possible.  Contraryv to the statements made  that Macdonell, Gzowski ,& Co. hail  received the award for the second  [thirty miles on the line southeast  '(torn Merritt, the intimation was given  ,this morning at the offlcesof the hi;in  that no such contract had been given  ,as yec and would riot likely be before  July.

Gibson,  Lieutenant-  :Giqyei'nbVot':Oritii.H  hey and others of the most important  men in the east.   The.Chinese Corisul-  Gerreral at) Ottawa tells of the sufferr  ing being indescribable.   Many thousands  have already died and  it is esti  mated  that oyer a; million   will   die  from the famine if immediate relief is  not obtained. Bishop White of Honan  has cabled to Canada an urgent appeal  jfor'help.:    The Committee have eom-  ipiited that one  dollar  and fifty  CENTS WILL SAVE A IIUMAX LIFE. The  treasurer of the eoihiiiittee is S. J.

GOVERNMENT   LAND   GOES   UP  B. C. Govt.   Increases  Price  of Second-  Class Lands from $2.50 to $5.00  Per Acre  HERE WE GET IT  NOT.EFFECT MOTHER LODE  The First Labor Calamity   Ever Known  to Side-step Greenwood  Victoria, April f>.-~ An Order-in..  Council embodying a very important  change in the land policy of the province received the signature of the  Lieutenant-Governor to day. Its substance is to increase the price of laud  classified as second-class from $2.50 to  1 .$5 per acre and that of the first-ehiss  hind iron $5 to $10 per acre. The new  scale of' pi-ices will prevail from the  beginning of the provincial fiscal year.  In addition to thus amending the  'schedule'of prices for crown lands, the  government has doubled the fee for  purchasers of land surveyed by the  crown, the charge in future being fifty-  cents per acre instead of twenty-five  .cents.  . The government has further decided  to plaee under reserve from alienation  otherwise than by pre-emption, all'  crown lands including the Cariboo,  Lillooet,arid Kam lo.opsdivjsicui of ,Yjile  di'strict,,V^  froiii one:4uar,l,e.r to one-third offtlie  eritlire province, ,1'he amount of��������� la-nil  aiijzjcted is' fifty million:acres.

The department in this connection is considering the advisability  of adopting the sale-by-auction system.  This is What Reciprocity  Means South  of the Border  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his servile  followers at" Ottawa would have us  believe that the dub scheme of Patterson and Fielding will work to Canada's advantage. That it was conceived by Taft for the advantage of  Uncle Sam there is riot .1 shadow of  doubt, and it is a very'sure thing that  in swapping nags if onei man gets the  best of the trade the other must get  the worst.of it. .  It is therefore interesting to  note  some of the reasons ''advanced'' by advocates of the  movement a cross   tlie  line, and the  latest to be heard on tJVj,  subject   is   Elbert   Hiibbaid,   wb-  learned in literature, biography,  an'sich things.    List to Fra Ell   ;.  the sage of East Aurora; ���������'  "Reciprocity with Canada is a gio..t  arid beneficent move. We need the  foodstuffs carrd lumber that Canada:  produces, and she needs our manufactured products.  Under the old scheme, our big.  manufacturers evade the'duty by going over to Canada arid starting factories: Hence a tariff really drives  our manufacturers across the border.  "Reciprocity will place a willow  .plume ..--in. the'cap. of President Taft,.  and for generations to come history  "will'call him blesssed."

ICotlic-riiain, Applicant ior Transli-r  There  was   general   satisfaction   in  Hedlev last week when it was known  that L. H.   Patten was in  receipt of a  letter from  A.  Creelrnan  in which a  much  more encouraging state of affairs was shown to exist in connection  with the Redeemable  Investment Co  than what was feared when Mr. Creel-  man left here.    The letter states that  an expert official audit of the books of  the  company  had   failed to   disclose  anything wrong and that the auditor  had gone on record to that effect.  The  trial which the U. S. government had  screwed up  its coinage  sufficiently to  agree   to bring on the  2Sth of   March  after numerous put-offs has how again  been   postponed* until  April 20th and  the counsel   for the defendants do not  hesitate to say that absolute acquittal  is the only reasonable outcome to expect.     The  belief  is strong  that the  P. O.   Dept.   is putting up a.   big  bluff  to  save   their face,  and   furthermore,  that   there has   been more or   less of a  political   conspiracy at the   bottom of  prosecution   for the  express  object of  ruining   tin-   company;    And   yet   th  I'niU-d States is called the "land of the  free".    The   aclion   of the    Post Office  Department   in connection  wit li I'nit-  ed Wireless   has been even more scandalous   in its   injustice,   as the   attack  upon them   was made  as   long  ago as  last  .June   and   they   have   never   yet;  been   able to  compel the   Department1  to bring   on trial.    IWr. Cieeltnaii is iu |  hopes   that   the   present sununi.-i-   will  see work in progress on the Kingston, i  The above is the name to he given  to the new townsite to be laid out by  the B. C. Portland Cement Go. near  its works on One-mile' Creek. Work  was started there the beginning of the  present month and orders for the  machinery are being placed. Satisfactory rates have been obtained from  the railrojids to enable tlieni to market  their output in the.cities of the Pacific  Northwest.  In the matter of modern improvements it would look as if it is intended  to make the new townsite set a pace  for the rest of the interior. A parli-  graph from the secretary's letter concerning it is as follows:  "Tlie new townsite. at East Princeton is located within seven minutes  walk of the British Columbia Portland  Cement Company's works, and the  coal mine of the United  Empire Coni-  Should  the reciprocity treaty with������'  Canada, which will be brought before  the United States senate during the  extra  session  next month, ..pass, the  Northwestern   millers .will   make  a.  strong fight for  tlie practical control  of the European Hour trade, says the  Chicago Daily Trade Bulletin.      With  the  comparatively   low-priced   Canadian wheat at their doors they will be  in  a  position   to   compete   with   the  Canadian millers.    The high-prices for  the   best   American   brands   of   flour  have caused them to make little headway  in Europe,   but with   free Canadian   wheat it is expected that- their  stile will  be pushed to the limit, as  there is rrot superior.     Northwestern  millers have a decided advantage over  the Canadian  miller, as  they have all  all the necessary wheats for- blending  within a. short distance of their mills,,  something the   Canadian   miller  has  not.     While no   commercial   war   is  looked for, it is  expected  that competition will be: very sharp.  pany. The townsite is beautifully  situated, overlooking the Similkameen  river towards which it gently slopes.  It is the most, beautiful location for a  thoroughly modern city in the Simil-  fcameen Valley. Inside of two years  it is estimated that there will be a pay  roll of more than $50,00(1 per month to  support the city. It is proposed to  have all the modern conveniences such  as electric, light, water works, cement  sidewalks, parks, etc. There is a large  demand for the lots at the present,  time, many having been spoken for as  soon as the survev is completed. Information concerning the sale of lots  can be had by addressing the Secretary-Treasurer of the British Columbia Portland Cement Company, Ltd.  either at Princeton, or Vancouver.  AWAKENS A CHORD  PROSPEROUS CANADA  With   Such  Prosperity   Under   Present  Fiscal Policy, Why Seek to Undo It?  (U-dge)  We read the other day that Steamboat mountain is designed to become  the greatest gold producing district-on  the North American continent. These  words seem familiar, and surely somewhere in the dim and distant past-we  have heard them. To hear them again  is like meeting ;tn old friend in foreign  parts. Oh memory! Mow it blooms  again where the plow of Time has  passed.  Xews-Adverriser  This will be.���������mother of Mr. Fielding's  proud days.    He is to deliver a budget  speech, in which he will announce the  largest current surplus in Canadian financial  history,   and  will   point   out  that the year's trade far exceeded all  records.   We believe that the minister  will show that Canada has spent more  money in railway construction than in  any previous year; that the  transportation   records   are  the   largest   ever-  known; that  Canadian bank clearings  are far the largest in her history; that  industries  have  been   unusually   productive,  and  wtiges  unusually   high:  that real estate  values have advanced  East and West;  that immigration has  even   exceeded sanguine expectations:  thai    the   Canadian   people,    already  prosperous, are on   the way Io greater  prosperity:   already   devoted   to   the  Empire, thev  aie looking   forward to  closer  commercial   relations.    No one  c.*iii   tell   a story   of   that   kind   better  thmi Mr.   Fielding.     The only  pity is  that   he would   not be able to finish it  by saying that Canada intends t<> persevere in her method   of development  by  protecting her own interests from  fei-i'ign   aggres.-ion.   by   persisting   in  her efforts to forward the  closer ecm-  moi't'ial   relations  of the  British   Umpire, anil by   refraining from aiiti-l!ri-  tish and anti-Canadian conlinenl.al entanglements.

There is another reason   why the   present   is  an   opportune   time   to   make  the change   and that is. the   wholesale  reckless manner iu  which   land is   being staked   for purchase   regardless of  its value.   -People  who buy   land   legitimately   are   supposed    to    exercise  some   care    in   seeing    that they   are  getting   the   worth    of   their   money,  but when men  employ  anybody they  can find who in out of a job   to go and  stake thousands of acres  for them  at  so much per day  arid  expenses, or at  so much per acre, and   hind   is staked  in this way that people  in   the neighborhood  would not think of touching,  there i> reason to fear that  some jobbery is intended and   thai, some  poor  beggar is going to get the worst of  it  later mi.    But if they  have to put  up  the m.-ii k.it value of the  land  for  all  they purchase there will   be   less  likelihood    if   worthless   unsuitable   land  being n.-ld   by   speculators   to  he   unloaded   af on unsuspecting purchasers  ,-it a. (li  1...net-.    That sort   <>f thing   is  not ca 1 i-iated to do the province any  good .01 1 1 he less we can have of it the  bettei.     In   making  this increase   the  good intention   of the  government is  best  judged   by   the   fact    that   they  have made no change whatever in the  price  charged    the    bona   fide   settler  who wants to obtain  hind by pre-emption and make a. home in the country.

It  is understood  that his visit was made  ; in behalf of his friend, Mr Fernie of  Victoria, who is a large stock-holder  ; in  the Kingston and   doubtless was  curious to have direct information as  Tto present conditions at the property.  ���������'���������'���������-   The boys at the Nickel Plate will be  .*; interested in a news item which appeared in last week's Phoenix Pioneer.  It    reads:   "Herb   Neil,   captain   of  Phoenix,silverware liockeyists, stole a  march on his  team mates this week  and scored another "goal".at Cascade,.  It is reported that he and a popular  telephone   lady   am ' honeymooning  along the silvery waters of Christena  Jake." ������������������'���������'. ���������''������������������:*'  Boundary fishermen are chafing under the restriction by which they are  not allowed to angle for the speckled  beauties until'after the 30th of April  while we in Hedley have been allowed  to do so since the 25th of March. That  is what they get by living east of the  120th meridian. . Even Keremeos is included in the'restricted area.  Those minus registrations up at the  Nickel Plate last week make a new record for April. A mile up in the ozone  makes a big difference in the weather  sometimes. A whole week in ��������� April  which will give an average maximum  showing one degree of frost, an average minimum of 23 degrees of frost  and an average mean of twelve degrees is a pretty cold week for April.  One of the songs chosen by Mrs.  Brown for her concert here on the  28th inst., is Nevin's "Rosary". This  beautiful composition given with the  expression which a gifted singer of  Mrs. Brown's ability can impart  should rrrake the occasion one of rare  pleasure and enjoyment to the music-  loving in Hedley who are thus privileged to hear it.  Mrs. J. A. Brown is working hard  in preparation for her concert which  is to take place in Fraternity hall,  Hedley on Friday 2Sth, inst. . This is  likely to prove a musical treat to  which the music loving people of Hedley are looking forward with no small  amount of pleastireable anticipation.  It is her intention to have to the concert begin at S o'clock sharp so that  ���������the hour for closing will not be thrown  too late.  Mental & Co.   proved  rather a. surprise to show-goers in Hedley.    It was  the  first  entertainment of a psychic  nature   to be put on here and the advertising  matter having associated it  with legerdemain a certain amount of  mistrust as  to the merits of the company had   unfortunately -been created  and this was made to work still greater   harm    when   a   knocking   rumor  wholly   undeserved   preceded   them.  The result was a- very small house the  Hist night but the show giveii to that  small audience  was of sufficient merit  to  remove  the  prejudice and a good  audience greeted  the  second appearance.    The -various features presented  were   interesting,   but the chief interest  centred around   the performances  of Mental   whose hypnotic  work and  mind-reading  was subjected   to  tests  so numerous and   varied as to leave no  doubt as  to   the   genuineness of his  power.   lie was assisted by Miss Billie  Dare  who   is also a   hypnotist.    The  ���������demonstrations were more convincing  with local subjects  than in the case of  .those from   members of the company.  Mrs: Lowe, of 'Keremeos, is. stoppi ng  in 'town.- with Mrs. .Bradshaw."' Her  (laughter, Mrs Ew.-ut is in tlie hospital here.  .Mr-. L. A. Clarke, the young old  man from Green Mountain was in  town for a few days last week visiting  his daughter, Mrs. VV. J. Forbes. Mr.  Clarke, although he celebrated his  seventieth birthday last fail. looks on  the green ������ide of fifty and acts like!  forty-five. He. thinks nothing vet of  spending a whole day in the. saddle  riding the ranges after horses and  cattle.   .  Hincks'-arid Rolls have come together- again in a contest for the golf  ladder top and this time Rolls achieved a very, decisive victory winning the  match 5 holes up. The play was very  even in all except the putting ���������forin  every instance where the hole was  won by Rolls they were alrke on the  green arid Rolls won out by putting  stunts that1? were at times almost  safanic. The summer is likely to witness some hard contests between these  players iii fortnightly matches for- tire  ladder supremacy.  There was; a large turnout at'"''the.  funeral of W.T.

Mr. Knudson considers the prospects for such an opening good in the upper town arid has  already received and filled several  good orders for building material.  The ladies of the W. C.' T.

Mr. Moody was called in on Wednesday last to attend the little da ugh-,  ter of Mrs. D. McCurdy, whose illness  though alarming at tlie.time, proved'to  be nothing serious. Mrs. Mills is making very shvw recovery, Avhilo Mr.  Mills has not yet had a respite from  his painful attack of rheuiiiation.  Mr. and Mrs. Gplbeck, of Alarrieda������  Sask., old friends of Mr. H. A. Harrison's are in Keremeos this week looking for investment in fruit lands and a  home in the genratSjiriilkarneeri. At  the time of writing a deal is pending  between Mr. Golbeck andT.C. Brooke.  They intend moving into the valley  immediately aiid taking up their residence.  H G. Fisher and wife and Messrs.  Mason and DeBeck, of Pen tic ton made  arr auto trip trrqui: tqyy.rr hist weelcin  Mr. DeBeck's large tquring car-. As  an illustration of how the auto shortens the road, the party left Penticton  about 8 o'clock in the.morning, were  at Keremeos Centre an hour and a  half later, spent a couple of hours at  the Keremeos Hotel and returned  home by Richter's pass andFairview  reaching there irr good time for sup-;  per though aAhalt was made at Fair-  view and a delay occasioned at the  summit at Richter's pass owing to  part of the mechanism becoming too  hot. Miss Violet Kirby accompanied  the party back to Penticton and returned home by stage on Saturday.  An interesting function was held  here last week when AY. H. Armstrong plan ted on his lot the apple  tree that formed the central decoration iu the Keremeos display at the  National Apple show at Vancouver  last November. In tree planting it is  important that the soil be firmly  tramped around the roots and we venture to say that this detail was never  better performed than in the present  instance. Should the tree live and  flourish it will have a. history which  few trees have and should certainly  produce, raize winning fruit. Mr,  Armstrong is sparing neither time or  money to make his lot as near perfection as possible. The Keremeos Creek  is being made to meander by means of  cobble stone cribs through the grounds  and its graceful curves add much to  the attractiveness of what was once  the old Coulthard orchard. A line  residence is to be built, facing the  street to the south of the, old road and  on what was known as the .Murphy  lot.  1  i  x  SEEDS  We arc  headquarters  for Field and Garden Seeds' of  all varieties  Mammoth Red Clover, Timothy  No. i, White Idaho Dry Land  .    .      . ���������   ..     xxiiaiici     .      .      ���������    ���������  :  Agents for Pendray's Sprays and  John Eteer Ploughs  FRANK RICHTER & CO.
