"MONEY TO   LOAN  the existence of fire is at once known,  the camper may be justly held to account for a very large proportion of  the season's coiifiagatinns.  Stringent regulations have been  passed by the Board of Railway Commissioners of Canada to cover the risk  of new railroads under construction in  the Province, the patrol has been  doubled on the rights of. way, and  every possible precaution urged upon  logging operations. The Forest Branch  is endeavoring to co-operate in every  way with those who have work to perform which is attended with danger  to the forest. But the greatest danger  of all, that of the man who is cureless  with his camp fire, still remains open,  and it can be removed only by increased watchfulness on the part of every  individual who uses the woods for  pleasure or profit.  This year the officers of the Fore-it  Branch expect a harder season than  ever before. The very conditions of  dampness and consequent heavy  growth of grass and weeds which  ru.-ide.thn_year���������]0l2 one..,pf th.e bi.'sl*. in  the history of the Province from the  standpoint of fire protection, will combine to make a great fire hazard this  spring. v.:  The rangers now appointed by the  Branch are being giveii particular instructions with regard to warning  campers and securing their co-operation in keeping dowii the danger to  the forest.  The six simple rules which the rangers will impress upon fire wardens and  all those  they meet in   the woods are:  1. Be sure your match is out before  you throw it away.  2. Knock out your pipe ashes or  throw your cigar or cigarette stump  where there is nothing to catch fire.  Don't build a camp fire- any larger  than is absolutely necessary. Never  leave it, even for- a short time, without putting it out with water or earth.  -I. Don't build a cauipfire against a  tree or log. Build a small one where  you can scrape away the needles,  leaves or grass from all sides of it.  5. Don't build bonfires. The wind  may come up at any time and start a  fire which you cannot control.  (i.    If you  discover a fire,   put it out  if possible; if you cari't,  get word of it  to  the nearest   forest ranger or lire-  warden   as  quickly as   you   possibly  can.  weeks hence, were lacking. The long  drought which has prevailed since the  snow took its departure over a month  ago has given everything a brown  parched -ippearnnce much the same as  we had left behind us'Sit-'Hedley, but  the robins and meadow larks were if  anything a trifle merrier than usual  and the air was full of promise for the  good things in store.  The time at our disposal did not permit of a general round of inspection of  the different holdings' and the errand  upon which we were bent took us only  over the portion lying east and south.  A little of the west, however, was  seen as Twiddle's new,Cadillac car in  which we rode sped out along the new  main road through the newer fruit  lots towards the Price estate holdings  to reach the grade on the old road  coming from upper Keremeos Creek  points, for the direct route between  the station and the Central was undergoing repairs at the hands of the road  gang. And here a word for the car,  which is surely a dandy. It seemed  t������ l-vi'.ub-.i/.'d with thiv.j;)irit of a keen  horse, conscious of its own istrc-ngth  and eager to get trying it, for it took  the grade on the high gear with prac-  ROD AND GUN FOK APRIL  PENTICTON,  B.

Taylor Limited, Woodstock, Out., is one of particular interest to the fisherman. "The Giant  Trout, of Nipigon" is the opening number and describes the excellent trout  fishing that is to be had on this .famous  stream, which is probably not excelled by any other trout fishing stream  in the. Dominion. Prof. Edward E.  Prince, Commissioner of Fisheries,  contributes an article on "The Pearl-  sides; A Luminous Fish New to Canada." "The Amateur Fisherman���������also  His Wife" is a humorous sketch of tlm  day's fibbing that proved disastrous  alike to the fisherman's tackle and to  his temper. Fishing stories from British Columbia, Alberta, Cape Breton,  Ontario, etc. serve to maintain the  representative character of the magazine while other topics including another article on the fox industry and  number three of the series "Small Fur  Bearers and How to Take Them," give  variety to the issue in which they appear.  tically no perception of diminished  speed or greater effort but with bushes of power in reserve, and whirling  along a. perfect  highway was at the  Central in a twinkling.  " ;    h- :     "'  Up early  next morning   with   the  robins and meadowlaiks piping in the  fields, along the fences and among the  willow   trees  lining  the  creek, a jog  on horseback along the old road leading to Fairview and  down the  valley  showed the -wonderful transformation  which has 'taken place in the last eight  years.    The Richter ore hard of course  was there before that time and even it  has  undergone   great extension   and  improvement in   that   time.    But on  the lands taken over by the Keremeos  Land Co. eight years ago where there  was formerly nothing but bare brown  gravelly benches lightly covered with  bunch grass  and   plentifully  spotted  with  knots of cactus, sage brush and  greasewood.    are    now    to    be   seen  broad  well-kept young orchards, now  two  or  three   years   in   bearing,   the  well-tilled   land lying brown  and mellow between the rows of trees and the  young sturdy  tree trunks whitewashed from  the ground   up to   where the  branches begin to spread, and each lot  with acomfortabla dwelling and homelike   .surroundings,    show    the great  change which has come over the scene.  Some  of these  dwellings   mi^ht even  be   described   as   palatial   for   at   all  events they possess achiteotural beauty  that would  fit them to occupy a place  in   the   best   residential   portions    of  some of our cities.  Farther south is the ranch of Mrs.  E, M. Daly which has preserved more  fully the appearance of a decade ago  and is yet- intact as a stock ranch, the  broad meadows kept for raising hay  and the herd maintained although a  fewer number of head are kept than  formerly.  South of Mrs. Daly's holdings we  come into the broad lands of the Similkanieen Fruit Lands Co., Limited  which was better known in the district as the Tt ranch, and here the  work of transformation is just beginning. It is the biggest block of high  grade land to be found in the valley,  and when the nature of the land is  taken into consideration in that it is  capable of producing senii-troprical  Continued on Pago Three  By an agreement which, ifc is stated,  has just been concluded between the  Kettle Valley Railway and the Great  Northern Railway Co., the for  company are to build, own and operate a single track line of 57- miles over  the Hope mountains from Hope to a  junction point at Otter summit, eighteen miles ease of the main Hope Summit, The G.N.R. are to have running  rights, for which it will pay an'.annual  rental bases on a percentage of the  cost of construction.  It is stated officially that the Kettle  Valley line will open for traffic by the  autumn of next year, when the coast  will be alforded direct communication  with the Similkameen, Okanagan, and  Boundary districts, as well as with the  Kootenays, and, in conjunction with  the C. P. R. will provide an alternative  main line through Southern British  Columbia.  The negotiations which have been  in progress to accomplish this end between the two road's was brought to a  close on Thursday last the parties to  the final stage being J. J. Warren,  President of the Kettle Valley, for  that road and Vice-president, L. C.  Gilman, of the Great Northern for his  road. Mr. Warren acknowledges the  friendly offices of Premier McBride in  helping to bring it about and in sug-  gos-ting it in the first place.  While the Great Northern will use  tlie road for a large volume of their  local tiade between eastern Washington and Idaho points and the British  Columbia coast as well as to relieve  congestion on their main line, it is  understood that the C. P. R. will use  it for operating a through freight and  passenger service between tlie Coast  and Winnipeg as connection to the  prairies will be alforded by the Crows  Nest Branch of the C. P. R. The  scenery is described":is"heing as beautiful and more diversified than along  the C. P. R. line through the Rockies  and Selkirks.  Mr. Gihnan, who also expressed  himself as satisfied with the settlement, slated that 'the Premier had  been instrumental in making suggestions.which had brought it about.  Construction on this fifty-seven mile  link is to proceed at once and to that  end the K. V.'announce that they will  call for tenders tor the building of it  within the next thirty days. The  junction point is Mile 30 of the'Mei ritt  branch of the K. V. and will bp on the  main line of the road extending eastward from that point to Penticton.  The maximum grade of tlie Coqtiihalla  section which is to be built by the K.  V. is 2.2 pet-tent against traffic east-  bound but is quite easy for traffic  ���������westbound as there is plenty of distance in which to make, the ascent to  Hope summit from the east.  The effect of the agreement is also  lrkely to be seen iu the Kettle Valley  plans in the vicinity of Princeton and  the belief is gaining ground that the  original intention of the road to come  into Princeton by means of a spur is  more likely to be carried out and  thereby avoid any further conflict between the two roads likely to arise in  attempting to have them parallel each  WAR A GOOD THING  This Blunt Assertion by An Authoritative  German, Has at Last Opened the  Eyes of Conan Doyle  other  up  the  Tulameen.  narrow  canyon   <  if  th  SWELL EGG LAYING  The March report of the egg-laying  contest now in progress at Victoria is  to hand and shows that the White  Leghorns and the one pen of Buff  Orpingtons are still carrying off all  the bouquets. The latter mentioned  pen has completed another sensational  month by producing 101 eggs in 31  days from the pen of six birds. This  even beats their own wonderful performance for February of five eggs  per day for the month for it lacks  only one egg of being 5.3 eggs per day  for the month. In class (I) the White  Leghorns are still a long way in the  lead, no less than six of the pens having over -100 eggs to their credit since  the contest began, and the highest  two have 101 and -153 respectively. In  class (2) or weight variety the pen of  Buff brgingtons already mentioned  leads by a. long way, having 118 eggs,  and is the only pen in that class to go  over 100, or at all near that mark.  Sir  Arthur  Conan Doyle  is ;i member of the Anglo German society, says  K'-'  The Toronto News.    He   has  worked  for  years to  promote a   better imdor-  'standing  between   Great, Britain    and  Germany. , He  has   always   believed  and  argued   that war  between   these  countries would   be practically impossible, because   Great Biitain could not  attack  Germany without   the consent  of the  great   majority  of  the people,  and  Germany would   have nothing to  gain by attacking Great Britain, even  if the   Germans  were   victoi ions.    Sir  Arthur  is still of  opinion   that such a  war  would   be a  stupendous   piece of  folly,   but after  reading   General ���������Von  Bernhardt's   "Germany and   the Next  War", he  is convinced   that this book  constitutes a very clear statement that  war is   imminent, and he is of opinion  that the   ICinpiro   should   take   what  steps are necessary   to be prepared for  the event.      *  Jn a long article contributed to the  American press, Sir Arthur Conan  Doyle summarizes the salient points  of Genei-il Von Bernhardt'.-- woik, and  then gives his idea as to the cour.-e  which should be pursued by England.  It is interesting to note the German  Goneial's .views of the situation and  his conception of the relationship between the Mother Country and the  oversea Dominions. He lays it down  as an axiom that if England were  hard pressed the oversea Dominions  would seize the opportunity to sever  their connections with her. He thinks  that Germany should go to war with  England as the champion of the  human race to establish the freedom  of the sea.  Both these statements are absurd.  It is unnecessary to lay stress on the  fae.l, that an attack on Great Biitain  would bring closer to the Mother  Country all the oversea Dominions.  British marine supremacy-has assured  to the whole world the freedom of the  sea, arid there can be little doubt that  this freedom will vanish if ever the  British navy suffers defeat. But as  Sir Arthur points out, a war will be  disastrous whether it be the outcome  of logical diplomacy and justifiable  grievances, or whether it results fi om  tortuous thinking and blundering  leadership. ������  General Von Bernhardt represents  German officialdom. He frankly declares that war is itself a good thing,  that all advance is founded on struggle, and that each nation has aright  to use violence when its interests are  concerned and there is reasonable hope  for success. With this attitude of  mind British subjects in all parts of  the world will have but little, sympathy. But at least we owe thanks  to. General Von Bern haul t for telling  us so frankly tlie viewpoint of many  of his countrymen.  The millennium has not arrived.  There are still responsible statesmen  leading thought in mighty nations  who believe in the survival of the  fittest so far as empires are concerned.  These men will work on the feelings  of their countrymen until they have  aroused' the spirit of jingoism that is  required, and then they will stiikeif  there is the least hope of success. Il  is the duty, therefore, of all the Dominions of tin; British Empire to  make successful attack impossible by  maintaining the Imperial fleet at a  standard that will disco mage all  rivals.  GEOLOGISTS COMING  Party Will Be in   Hedley Camp Between  the 20th and 27th of August  The Nelson Board of Trade have received reply to an inquiry which they,  made regarding the itinerary of'the  visiting geologists and have obtained  the information that a party of 200  will be in Nelson on August 20th and  dates for certain visits in the Kootenays are planned. At Rossland the  party will split and 11 section of them  will head for Hedley.  Tho exact date of their arrival here  was not specified but will likely be  about the 25th or a dav or so later.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  It is to be. hoped that th? conversion  of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle referred to  in another column is  merely  an indication of  a general   awakening of the  British people to the real peiil of their  position.      The  evil   influence  of   the  peuce-at-any-priee   party   in    England  and especially   the Anglo-German  Society which lias sought to lull the British   nation   into a  feeling of   false security   by   their   blind   piopngandn. in  reference   to  the   pacific intentions of  Germany towards their country, is an  influence that cannot be got rid of in a  day,   but  better   that  it  pass   slowly  than not at all.    The most seiious feature is that it has been men in authority   who   have  been  tainted   with   it.  Compromise and puerility   have been  doing   their fatal   work and "conciliation to the point of flabbiness" has advanced to such an extent that even, as  one noted writer puts it, "the Minister  of War, with a rotund person and face  of a  cherub,   answers attacks,   not in  the   voice of Mars,   but in the  falsetto  and piping tones of peace.''   Time and  again Minister Haldane has demeaned"  himself and his country  by his crawling attitude towards Germany and his  absurd   attempts   to   have   Germany  abandon her warlike preparations, until he  has filled the  Germans up with  conceit  that they have Britain scared  out of her   boots.    Both in   the House  and out of it Radicals are  incessantly  manifesting almost abject terror lest a  word be said in Britain that would indicate   that Britain would  even strike  a blow in her own   defence if attacked  by Germany, and the result of it all is  the  fostering of such  self conceit in  the   mind  of  the  average German as  that   given expression  to by this General Bernhardt.

Tommy Corrigan has tirade so complete recovery that he is permitted to  walk about again and claims to be  feeling quite fit. On Tuesday he was  able to get down street. .   "  D.J. Taylor of Winnipeg, managing  director of the Similkameen Fruit  Lands Co., who has been spending the  past ten days on the property, made a  trip up the line as far as Princeton  last Friday.  Kit Summers of Princeton was married there on Wednesday of last week  to Mrs. Ellen Christina Pratt. Kit's  Hedley friends wish him and his bride  ���������all the joys of the married state and  extend their blessing.  W. J. Forbes came down from the  bridge at Granite Creek where he had  been working. He was laid up with a  lame back which rendered it difficult  for him to move about at all, much  less continue the strenuous work of  bridge-building.  Dick James returned on Tuesday  from Spokane where he spent a week.  While there he had a few rounds of  their-golf links and thinks  they have  ���������liavea very good course but nothing  as sensational  as some of the holes on  "the Hedley links.  J.A. Schubert returned to Tulanieen  on Friday hist and J. T. Armstrong to  Penticton. The intention we understand was to assist Mr. Lyall in taking  stock, but as the work was going to  take longer than anticipated and Mr.  Armstrong had to return to Penticton  for work awaiting him there it was  ���������decided to postpone it for- a while.       Charlie "Wilson,   manager of the P.  Burns <fc Co. interests in Vernon and  superintendent of branches through  the district, was up the river-last week.  He is credited with the ability to  get through the greatest amount of  business with the least fuss of any  man on the road and is a live wire on  the quiet, making close connections and  carrying no brass band.  Rev. A. H. Cameron expects to attend the Missionary conference to he  held in Toronto in June. Each congregation of the Presbyterian church  in Canada will have the privilege of  sending a lay delegate as well, but the  congregation at Keremeos and Hedley  did not awail themselves of the privilege as they could not get anyone who  could spare the time to make the trip.  C. R. Br-iggs of Vancouver, the secretary treasurer of the British Coluin-  . bia Portland Cement Company, went  up to East Princeton last week. It is  expected that the wheels Will be turning in ten days or less and it is the intention to run the machinery for a  week or two so as to have everything  running smoothly and in perfect order  before the full load  required in liianu-  ������������������ factoring will be turned on.  The warm weather which set in  about the end of the week began to  show itself in the streams and Twenty  Mile creek got stout enough about  Monday morning to take most o'f the  work itself and most of the boilers  were allowed to go out. The flume is  not very tight and needs an overhauling after the winter's freezing but the  large volume of water which is beginning to come in will assure getting a  good supply down to the penstock.  J. Gellatley, manager of the P.  Burns shop at Princeton, went down  to Keremeos last week in company  with Charlie Wilson aud took over 50  head of beef cattle from the Similka  nieen Fruit Lands Co. which the local  manager It. L. Cawston had been feeding up fpr them during the winter. P.  Burns and Co. have contracts with the  local stock men for the first choice of  their herds for as much as they require and at present and for some time  past they have been taking all that  are fit to kill. Some of the stockmen  are under contract to sell to no dealers  but P. Burns & Co. and consequently  if their brands should happen to turn  up .elsewhere than among the Burns'  hides there is material there for a heap  of trouble for somebody.  Vancouver- papers tell of the sudden  death in New York of a Vancouver  real estate operator and financial agent  and it is believed here that the person  referred to is connected with the  j power scheme on the Siniilkaineen  river. No word has yet leached here  in confirmation of the belief nor as to  the elfect the death may have on the  enterprise of developing ample power-  on the river either by the parties holding the existing record on the river or  by the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  A break in Ihe Hume up near the  watchman's cabin occurred on Tuesday morning when .i couple of sections  were carried away. The break was  rather unexpected after all this dry  weather, but evidently the leakage  from the flume itself contributed to  the softening of the foundation which  let it down, and the suddenness with  which the extra load of water came on  it doubtless proved the last straw.  Nevertheless the old flume has done  its work and earned its keep all these,  years and must be judged leniently  for an occasional indisposition after  this'long term of meritorious service.  When the system is completed on the  river the old creek flume will be given  a well deserved rest.  Mr. Rothwell who made the special  rating for Hedley to the Mainland  Underwriters' Association, was' in  town last week and made, the Gazette  a call when he discussed with the editor the matter of Hedley's rating  which has given a great deal of dissatisfaction. 'He was prepared to defend each rating on its merits as being  wholly in accord with the underwriters rules upon which he was compelled  to go. That they should be higher in  some cases than the old Board rating,  he was quite prepared to find, , notwithstanding the fact that efficient  fire protection now exists, and he gave  a reasonable explanation why that  was so. Every addition which a niari  may make to his building or which his  neighbor may make, if it is within  the proscribed distance, adds to the  ris.k, and it is up to the assured to report these changes with each renewal  of his policy; and when a new special  rating is made on the basis of things  as they are and not as they were  when the former rating had been  made.

The total acreage of .-the estate goes oyer 5000 acies but not all of  this was taken over from the R, ranch  for 100 acres of the very best land in  the valley was acquired since from the  Barcello estate.  The  present owners are a group of  Winnipeg's  brightest  and   most successful financiers and they are setting  a pace  for thoroughness and strictly  business   methods that would -billiard  to surpass.     It is  their intention   to  bring the greater-   part   of   it   under  cultivation  and  sell   it   as   improved  land.    To  that end the question of irrigation is receiving full attention and  the most advanced appliances for land  improvement on a big scale are adopted.   Here we saw in operation for the  first time a huge gang plow propelled  by engine power, but the motive powr  er is not steam  but gasoline, although  it is common to  refer to it as a steam  plow.    Another machine that will be  a great labor saver and lessen the cost  of  turning land in a state of nature  into improved land, is a brush cutter  also driven by power and capable of  taking down saplings and young trees  to a thickness of 6 inches.  The managing director is Mr. D. J.  Taylor who was in the valley at the  time of our visit and who is making  himself thoroughly conversant with  every phase of the enterprise. Mr.  K. L. Cawston is the. local superintendent and was found as of old in the  saddle turning over a bunch of prime  beef cattle from the company* herd to  P. Burns &, Co. to whom alone they  sell. A more detailed description of  the work which they have in hand to  carry out their plans is reserved for a  future issue when we will have more  time to go over the place.

Carmichael and family have  moved into the "���������Bungalow" on the  Similkameen mail.  .'J. McGillivery of Vernon was a visitor to the district for a week previous  to the 1-lth when he returneil.  Any local items of interest to the  district handed in to Harry Etches at'  Ihe post ollice will be greatly appreciated.  Charles Louden and wife came up  from the ranch in the lower valley on  the I-Ith to spend a few days in the  district.  Kverything is bright and sunshiny.  The cottonwood trees were the first to  appreciate by coming out strongly in  green this past week.  Mrs. Mar-ding, mother of Mrs. A.W".  Dundas, left here Wednesday the iltli  for Regina. She intended slaying oil'  a few dnys at Calgary.  Mr. DeLatour. representative of the  Municipal Wood Pipe Co. of Vancouver, spent a few days in the district  drumming up business.  Major Megraw came down on Wednesday evening's train to forget the  rush of the mining town. He had the  pleasure of spending a very pleasant  time at the R ranch.  A. W. Hunter after preparing six  acres of his land and sowitig it down  to oats left for bis home at Armstrong  where he learned his farm there was  in a fit condition to work.  .A. P. Tingley has tendered his resignation to the local school board. Mr.  Tingley intends taking a year's course  in manual training at the Ontario  Agricultural College at Guelph.  Govt. S7et. Hadwc-n of Agassiz, B.C.  was in the district last week looking  over R. J. Armstrong's sheep. A few  of them have some ailment attended  with paralysis but no case has yet  proved fatal.  Mr. W. C. Bowen left on Monday  for Calgary rind other points. .While  , away he will look out for some genial  1 occupation and as soon as he is settled  Mrs. Bowen and the family, who are  still with us in Iveiemeos, will rejoin  him.  Considerable damage was done to  tlie Osoyoos side of the Osoyoos Similkanieen wagon road by the late  rain, bub the same will be in good  shape for traffic as Bob McCurdy has  a small gang at work doing necessary  repair-work.  The Similkanieen Fruit Land Co.  have had the Bareello place, next to  the reserve all plowed and at present  Engineer Shaw is running lines preparatory to plan ting. The Company  will plant in the neighborhood of three  thoiisaud trees on their property this  Slimmer.  Carl E. Keeler. received a wire from  the Principal of the Columbian College  stating that there was a position open  for him at New "Westminster, in consequence of which Carl was on his  journey the next day. His many  friends wish him success in his new  occupation.  Mr. and Miss Corrigan came down  from Medley on Monday where they  had been for the past week. Tom  Corrigan, better known hci'-c as  "Patsy", we are pleased to say is nicely recovering from his recent operation. It was a great comfort to have  his father and sister with him during  his illness.  G. G.   Keeler has  imported a Galloway anco transport, to be used in connection with   his business for delivery  purposes.       The   auto   is   capable   of  making   twenty   miles   an   hour,   its  capacity is   fifteen hundred  pounds, it  is twenty  horse power,   has pulley attachment to  engine which will enable  all   kinds  of  work   to   be done.    The  body  can be   fitted out  with a couple  of seats  so that  last  Sunday he   was  able   to take   many   friends  out for a'  spin in the  iirst.of its kind  in the valley.    Honk!  The section house had a. very narrow escape last week when it was  found that tlie building was on fire.  Apparently a spark from the engine  bad been blown under the porch, and  before anyone had noticed had burst  into flame. Many rushed to the scene  and were soon busily at work putting  the fire out and getting the effects out,  of the house. The d-im.-ige done was  not very much although the porch  was somewhat damaged.  Travellers from the Ashnola country  report having-seen many sheep which  seem tube ill a deplorable condition.  They are so thin and weak they can  hardly walk. It is claimed their condition was such that it would be no  difficulty to catch fliein on foot.  Cougar and coyote tracks were in evi  deuce. We would suggest that the  bounty on cougar and coyotes be  doubled, so that it would make hunters and trappers worth their while to  go after these animals. By doing this  the protection of these mountain sheep  would be doubled.  On Monday night the l-lth a general  meeting took place in the Customs  ollice to arrange, for the 21th of May  celebration. Mr. T. W. Coleman was  appointed to the chair with 11. C. N.  Etches as secretary-treasurer. Meeting called to order and general business was discussed.

The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of work.
