Portland  Cement Works .it East Princeton a  busy scene is presented by the unloading and transport of dinky engines,  steam shovels, tools, equipment and  general supplies. The chief contractors, Guthrie, McDougall & Co., have  a forwarding and constructing camp  at the cement works from which the  subcontractors are moving on to their  several miles of grading. There is  a total of 87 miles to be built, although  this distance may vary with revisions  and alterations in the line by engineers.  The engineer- work is in charge of G.  G. McCar-th and his start" are engaged  iti cross-sectioning and locating. An  engineer's camp is located near the  pithead of the United Empire's coal  mine and at the end of the rail way  track from the cement works.  The K. V. line -parallels the cement  spur track, if it does not actually  cover it foi a little distance, then it  skirts the Hill northerly fr'oiii the East  Princeton townsite company's office  and turns due east forming a. loop to  get down to the Similkameen river  crossing it just belowits -junction with  the Tulameen. From present indications it seems quite probable that the  Kettle Valley and V.V. &. IS. will have  a union station in Princeton.  No defiriate information is obtainable as to the route to Copper mountain. Both the K. V and V. V. & E.  haves lines run to Copper mountain  and Voigt's camp but the routes are  still matter for conjecture.

Of course a railway is not completed -.when  the rails  sire  laid.    In    both cases   mentioned  temporary trestles  took the place of  some'important steel   bridges.    Many  millions  were expended ori  Canadian  Pacific   construction  after   the   rails  were connected,  many must be paid  for work on the  Grand  Trunk  before  through traffic  begins.    But the  rails  are laid on the main track all the way  from Moncton to Prince Rupert.   The  portion from Quebec to  Moncton,  4fl0  miles, has been   taken over from   the  contractors as fully complete.    Regit  lar trains are run over a portion of the  distance.    The 1,314 miles  of line between Quebec and Winnipeg requires  some bridges,   ballasting and stations,  but will be ready for traffic dining the  summer*, and  in   the ordinary  course  of events the whole Transcontinental  should be transferred to the operating  company before the year expires.   The  prairie division of the western  section  has been completed  and in   operation  lor a year   and   some   longer.    The  mountain  portion is  now  linked  up.  and trains are running on the western  portion.     Within   a few   months  it  should be possible to operate  through  trains from Prince Rupert to Quebec,  and with a car ferry,   from   there  to  Moncton.    There is also  a  completed  branch line, belonging to the company,  connecting the Transcontinental with  Lake Superior at Fort William.    This  line is in operation.  Morden, Man., April 0th. ��������� Three  months from today on July i)Ui, Jack  Krafchcnko is to be hanged .it Wiu-  nipeg for the minder on December 3rd  of hist year of Mr. H. M. Arnold, manager of the Bank of Montreal at Plum  Coulee, Man'. The close of a long and  sensational trial enure at font- o'clock  this,afternoon when} the court met  after a two-hour intermission which  followed the jury's verdict of guilty.  When thecourtresuined, Krafchenko  make a statement ."to the court in  which he said he- did not deny that he  had been concerned in the hold-up'of  the bank, but said that he wis not the  man who killed Arnold. Then ulnef  Justice Mathers imposed sentence.  From the moment of the reading of  the indictment to Lhelast scene of all,  the prisoner preserved the samestendy  attitude, and he showed little or no  emotion even when the death penalty  was pronounced. Tire prisoner spoke  as follows:  "���������'Your Lordship arid Gentlemen of  tlie Jury,���������I thank you for the consideration you took with my case and  under the circumstances of my conviction, and also the evidence given  against me, I cannot see any other  way but that the verdict you brought  iu is justified. Although I have committed a good many crimes in. my  career, played hide-and-seek with the  police for many'years', arid done lots  of things I know were all wrong, this  crime brought before you by the  Crown, called minder-, and one of the  dirtiest crimes a man can commit, it  waf never in my nature to commit.  "I am sorry that,Mr. Arnold got  shot; although 1 wiW accused of it, I  will not deny that I.wns there on December 3rd, because that would be  lying. The Crown fi;<\t me here as the  only man there, although it is not  right. The evidence shows only one  man seen. I am positive that there  were three'different men committed  that crime, and", gentlemen of the  jury, I was riot the man who shot  Arnold. Because the chief of police  of the city of Winnipeg, Chief McPherson, iriight tell you a little story  if he liked���������if lie were not so afraid of  losing his position.  "I Worked under1 liim two or three  different7times. Me wanted me to be  a stool pigeon, and I would not stand  for it. But when a man's life is at  stake I did not think a man like the  chief of police -would'have acted as lie  lias done. I think, yoiir lordship, that  in that quarter" there is a need for a  little investigation. That is nil,'your  lordship."  This is the end  of one of the longest  and  nrost sensational trials ever held  in.western Canada.     1 he trial started  on March ISth and ended on April 0th.   -������������.   MANY SETTLERS FOR B. C.  West Section Nearing Completion���������High  Water Takes Out Part of Coffer  Dam But Does Not  Stop Work  SIMILKAMEEN HAS "  BRIGHT OUTLOOK  The pi-ogress made on the dam last-  week is very noticeable and the work  has been rushed so as to getcall the  work done before the high water came.  Ail the forms for the piers on the west  section are now _Jin and the tracks  for running the cement over to .the  piers are laid, these, fire also connected  up with the west bank.  The breaking of the wing dam last  week held the work back for a couple  of clays but the break was soon fixed  npand the work rushed along witheveii  greater activity. Mr. McLean having  the men working for ten and eleven  hours in order to get this  work done.  The water in the river, which has  been steadily 1 ising for the past couple  of weeks, carried out a portion of Ihe  coffer dam again on Tuesday morning  but the work was far enough advanced  so a s this would cause no great r neon ven-  ietrce arid the work can go on just the  same although if the dam had held for  a few hours longer- they would have  been better prepared for it as there  was a little more work that could have  been done more handily. As it was  the forms for the piers were all in ahd  enough cement in' each to hold them  firm.  '^It is thought that by the end of next  week this section of the dam will be  all completed and ready for-the stop-  logs and then all that will have to be  done to put the bridgeiri over the dam  and install the machineuy for the rising and lowering of the stop-logs.  The work on the right-of-way for  the Hume is going along nicely and by  the time that the work on the dam is  all finished the clearing and grading  of the right-of-way will be far enough  advanced to enable the work of putting in the flume to be got under way.  Activity   iii   Similkameen   Promises   to  Be Great During Coming Summer���������Big Showings  NEW HAZELTON ROBBERY  Details Received by  Provincial Chief of  Money Secured by Bandits���������One  Man Still Free  Mr. Morley Donaldson, Head ofG.T.P.,  Says Trails Are Lined With  Settlers  W.T.

Estimates Given for Exterior Work  LOOKS LIKE McBRlDE  FOR  LONDON POST  The effect of recent reports is that  the position of Canada's High Commissioner to Great Britain, lately filled by  Lord Strathcona, may go to Sir R. McBride. The Sunday papers at tho  coast printed the following���������Sir Richard McBride, premier of British Co-  umbiit, hits been offered the position  of high cornmisioner for Canada in  London, made vacant by the death of  Lord Strathcona, and will accept. The  appointment will be made in May. Sir  Richard is now in the east.  When   writing Advertisers  Mention the Gazette.  Please  Mr. Morley Donaldson, general manager of the Grand Trunk Pacific,   who  arrived  in   Prince  Rupert oti Thursday after viewing  the driving  of the  last spike in the new transcontinental  expressed  the opinion   that the great  cattle supply of the near future would  come from  Central  British Columbia.  He added: "In the Nechaco and other  valleys in the  central  part of the  province hay, grasses and nearly every  kind  of vegetation grows in wild pro-1  fusion.   Water is plentiful everywhere  and shade   trees   abound.     There is  also  vast quantities  of merchantable  timber and one mill is being put iti nt  Willow River,   the hew G.T.P. town  about 20 miles  northeast   of   Prince  George,  which will cut about 100,000  feet a day, a market for all of which  is expected  to be found in  the tributary territory."    He said  the trek to  the Last Great West was now on in  earnest.     The trails were lined with  settlers, their families and effects.  In one week recently the Grand  Trunk Pacific alone shipped in over  7,000 tons of settlers' effects to one  district.  Vancouver, B. C. April 11th���������Superintendent Campbell, head of the Provincial Police department, received a  telegraphic..message yesterday morning irom  Constable .Gammon,- at New  Hazeltoii,    stating   that    the   exact  amount of money secured by the.robbers,   who   on 'Tuesday,   robbed   the  branch  of the Union   Bank   at  that  point, was .$1,300.     It was made up of  $500 in five:dollar  bills  of the  Union  Bank, $400 in hew two-dollar bills, and  $150 in gold.    Chief Constable Owens,  of Prince Rupert is at New Hazelton  and in charge of the case,  arid Inspec-  tor'Wynn aud Detective Green   of the  Vancouver office,   have left   for   the  north to work  up the case against the  three wounded men,   who are believed  to have been  members of the party of  hold-up men. Two-of the robbers were  shot to death,   three are wounded and  in custody,  another man is held as a  suspect,  and  the  seventh   is still   tit  liberty.    The man still tit liberty is believed to be in possession   of the stolen  money.  MINING NOTES  Midway is to Celebrate Empire Day.  Considerable activity is still going on  tit Copper Mountain where the British Columbia Copper Company is developing a large group of claims it has  besides its underground work, four  diamond drills proving up the large  copper deposits at depth and is now  preparing for- power-Works most of  which will be generated by gits power  for which the Princeton coals are famous, some of the power, however,  will be obtained from the Whipsaw  creek which flows into the Similkameen river at the foot of Kennedy  mountain, about, nine miles south of  Princeton.  Several of the placer leases and  holdings up the Tulameen and on  Granite creek are being worked for  their rich gold and platinum contents  The Snodon . brothers are getting  some good looking gold, and Mr. Lambert will have his 850 foot tunnel for  hydraulic purposes completed in a  few days.  For the last few days several carloads of supplies arid horses have been  shipped into Princeton from outside  points for the contractors Guthrie McDougall & Co., who have a contract  covering 87 miles on the Kettle Valley  railway. Now that the people of the  Similkameen Valley have won their  contest for the inaiii line of the Kettle  Valley railway to build to Princeton,  instead of taking the Aspen Grove  route, by the efforts of the member,  L. W. Shatford. M. P. P., from strong  opposition hacked by the Duke of Portland, Aspen Grove and Nicola Valley  people, railway construction from the  end of the line at Osprey Lake to  Princeton will be rushed to completion  by this fall. Jacobs <fc Werdenhoff are  reported to have the contract for the  first five from Princeton.east.  The end of the  Kettle   Valley rails  to   the west are at the summit,   near  the'head waters of the Cold water river.  From this point both the Great Northern railway and the  Kettle  "Valley  lines are interested in pushing on  the  c. instruction down the Coquahalla river  to   Hope.   Both  abutments   are now  completed on the huge Kettle Valley  bridge over the Fraser river at Hope ;  work 611 the western  shore,  was completed last Wednesday.    The Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern   railway (G.  N. R.) has its grading about  completed up the Otter valley from Tulameen-  iind is expected to lay steel on the completed sections shortly.  GIVEN MINES TRANSPORTATION  J. L.Logie of Summer-Land, right-of-  way agent for the Kettle Valley Railway company came in to Princeton  last Tuesday and the right of way has  been decided on from tlie end of  its line at Osprey lake to the British  Columbia PortlandCementcompany's  plant at East Princeton. Contrary to  the expectation and announcements  the route does nob follow Five Mile  creek to its mouth and then up on the.  north side of the Similkameen river,  lis expected, but cuts the divide between Five Mile and One Mile creeks  about five miles north of the Similkameen river, cutting across Gibson ���������  Bros', farm and others, also giving direct transportation to the United Empire coal and copper mines. Tt is.  supposed to join with the spur con-.  necting with the V. V. <fc E. railway-  on the south side of'the Similkanieen  river, but no one knows at the present  date which way the Kettle Valley railway will come into Princeton.  Mr. Logic the right-of-way agent,  merely.asked for the consent of the owners of land on the route to permit  grading and clearing to begin as soon  as the contractors tire ready. No  money has yet beeii paid, the permission of owners being necessary to  allow construction to go on without  hindernnee or delay.  FEWER IMMIGRANTS THIS YEAR  Superinten dent of Immigration Says Only  250,000 Immigrants Will Come  to Canada This Year  Ottawa, April 11th.-���������That but 250.-  000 immigrants will come to Canada  this year, as against a total of 300.000  for the fiscal year just closed, is the  estimate made by the .superintendent  of immigration, Mr. AV. B. Scott.  Furthermore, it is predicted that the  number of artisans coining to this  country will he very much reduced,  although it is not thought there will  be a deal th of farm laborers and domestics. Mr. Scott stated that this  latter class was the only one sought  by the department as new citizens for  Canada. There has always been protests from the labor element against  the immigration of artisans but this  year it appears that, they will not  have much .ground for objection in  this regard.  Times are prosperous in Britain according to Mr. Scott and at the same  time it has been made known that the  Dominion is not in need of labor at  present, so that inimigration will be  restricted for the most part lo domestics and farm workers.  ,# THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, APRIL 1G,  1014.  zene  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

Thu early.completion of the V. V. A: E. and the Kettle   Valley  railways   will give  all  the  ���������towns  in the  district  that   nere.-snry  contiectioti   with    the   big   centres  of  traili-  and capital   which will promote  progiess  and the   development of our  abundant resources.     The. completion  of the two roads will given wider market fur  the fruit*   and coal of  this valley.    The   Pioneer Coal  Company  of  this   district,    the  Princeton. Coal   &  Land   Co.,   is  certain  of a very large  demand for its fuel.     The United Empire,   the Princeton Collieries Co.   and  ���������the Coaltiiont Collieiies own extensive  coal areas and they too will be producing in a short time.    The fruitgrowers  of the district will also be giveii a better  and   wider  market for  their fruit  and   the  quality  of  the  fruit   grown  here  is  sure  to  get  the  market  and  hold it.     The  better railway facilities  will also stimulate mining operations  in the district  in lessening the cost of  shipping in   machinery  and  supplies.  Mining on  a large scale by  the B. C.  Copper Co.   is  an  assured fact. -   The  extent,   and   quality   of   the   mineral  propositions owned by and under bond  to this company assure extensive operations and   the   permanency   of   the  camp.    Other large mining companies  are already  looking this way  for ore,  and   there is  no place  in B. C.  "where  better prospects for   the   making   of  big paying mines are to be found than  here, and with the acquisition of properties,   industries and   the payroll will  follow.     In   placer mining only   the.  fringe of a vast field of operation has  been  touched.      Among   experienced  placer  miners  the assertion  is made  that    the   possibilities   for   gold   and  platinum   milling are  practically unlimited in this section.     Actual placer  milling on   Oraiiite creek by the Golden Gate  Syndicate will begin in a few  weeks and at Roany camp the ground  is  known   to  contain   big  values,   requiring  only the  necessary Witter for  hydraulic    mining   on   a  large   scale.  Such   in   brief   is a   mere  skeleton   of  some  of the  proven  resources of this  district and   which   must   be   wealth  producing   with   the  magic  touch  of  capital and the necessary enterprise to  direct it.  natural rysotuoes. Any depression,  generally speaking, caii - he but temporary in chai-neter i'intil such time as  normal money, conditinns, joined with  business confidence, again restores tlie  wonted activity of the nation."  So declared Ho'ii. T.'W. White,   Dominion minister of finance, in bis bud  get speech   delivered   at   Ottawa   on  April  (ith.    Again,   be said,   with the  experience, of the. past in view.  ''So far as the financial stringency  is concerned we may consider th.it Liu-  worst is over."  Canada's record trade during the fiscal year just closed, when the total  again exceeded one billion dollars, the  heavy1 increases in the trade of the  United Kingdom.'' referred to in recent  press .despatches, easier money rates  and opinions of financial and business  authorities' in Europe, the United  States and Canada, arealike in support  of the view of the minister.of finance  .that the temporary period of financial  depression through- which the world  has been passing is giving place to  normal conditions.  Business  conditions move in cycles.  Financial depressions are as inevitable  as   the  rising and  setting of the sun,  although .they do .not occur  with the  same regularity.   During the past half  centuiy the world has passed  through  a period  of rapid  development which  is not paialleled  in history  and such  times of stringency' as have occurred  have served but to maintain a business  equilibrium,   they have acted but as a  -brake  upon   the  business 'machine at  times   when it  has shown   a'tendency  to get beyond   control.      Fortunately  the  period of a trade cycle given over  to  depression   has  always   been small  Compared   with the   t em.-iitided ol'Mbe  cycle,   that  during   which   prosperity  has rained.  1836  THE BANK OF  The terrible tragedy al Vancouver a  few days ago, in which a Chinese servant murdered the' lady by whom be  was employed, should serve as an object lesson to other .women. There  are scores of girls in Vancouver who  would have been glad to have had the.  position held by this Chinese, boy. and  surely the companionship of a. white  girl would have been preferable for  the woman to that of a Chink.

In fact, it was not a principle���������but rather a lack of  principle���������yet it held sway everywhere until a decade  or two ago.  When a merchant quoted a price^ he made it high  enough to stand almost unlimited whittling, and yet be  profitable���������to him. When he spoke of quality, his fingers  were crossed, and you were not expected to believe him  ���������unless you wanted to very badly.  m  m  m  m  fU  Buying was a haggle���������unless you  were a hardened haggler you came out  second . best in every deal. " Caveat  Emptor"���������it was up to you. There  was no confidence between buyer and  seller.  Business���������once an aggregation of  deals���������has become the living embodiment of ideals.       ���������  Advertising has helped, because  Advertising creates confidence in the  buyer and proves the seller's confidence  in his wares. Confidence has eliminated the haggle.  You see business confidence is a  good deal like capital, in that it accumulates like savings. The grocery-  consumer's confidence in a town will  be on deposit chiefly with a few capable  square.grocers; and dry-goods confidence, jewelry confidence, and so forth,  are massed in the same way.  The retail merchant doesn't lock  this confidence in his safe. He deposits it in turn with the wholesaler,  who passes it on to the manufacturer.  And the manufacturer, to make the  circle complete, must give confidence  to the consumer.  The manufacturer with goods to  sell must draw upon all these reserves  of confidence. He must demonstrate  his own fairness in dealing, his integrity in maintaining quality, his  willingness to put principle before  profit.  Advertising is the means through which the manufacturer makes this demonstration to you.  Advertising has given personality to commodities, so  that you now recognize your "friends" among soap, tea,  or collars, as readily as you recognize your human acquaintances.  Advertising fathered the "money back" principle, and  has made buying a pleasure instead of a duel of wits.  Advertising has spread the one-price policy���������erased  "Caveat Emptor" from the language of business, and  made buying safe to entrust to a child.  Advice regarding your advertising problems is available through  any recognised Canadian advertising agency, or through the  Secretary of the Canadian Press Association, Room 503  Lumsden Bldg., Toronto. Enquiry involves no obligation on  your part���������write if interested.  ^^^^^^^^^^^i^i^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THE HEDLEY GAZETTE APRIL 10. 1������H.  Town and Distrfrft.  II. D.

The find is reported  in a group of claims thirty-four miles  fioni Armslead and ten miles from  Brenner.  Patrick Clark, a pioneer mining  man of Spokane and heavily interested in the Standard "mine at Silverton,  has just returned from New York,  where he says eastern capitalists are  looking for* legitimate mining investments, and there is more money ready  to^be invested in safe and' sane" mining venture.', than ever before. British Columbia, mining propositions are  well thought of in the east.  The British Columbia Clipper company which has expended some  $650,-  000 developing its gold-copper properties on Copper Mountain, near Princeton, has changed its name to that of  Canada Copper Corporation, Limited.  It is now in a position to produce 2,000  tons nf ote a day when shipping facilities would warrant such activity,  having proved lip over8,000,000 tons of  high grades ores by the workings and  be ire-boles on Copper mountain, so in  the near future the Siniilkameen  country will come into its own, with  two    transcontinental  railways,    and  1 he development and showings proving  up thi1 rich mineral wealth throughout  the district.

A mistake was made in last week's  issue when we said that Mr. Hugh  Gibbons had come here to take up a  position as blacksmith at the Nickel  Plate. Mr. Gibbons is at the present  time doing odd jobs around the mine.  The Keremeos lacrosse team passed  . through town on Monday in the big  steam car enroute for Princeton where  they were to play a game with the  boys of that town. They returned  late that night tired but happy as they  had won a hard fought game by -the  score of -1 to 3.  The dance that was to be given on  April 17th by the band boys has been  postponed for a couple of weeks as  they received word yesterday that the  music they had ordered was not procurable' and they had to order from  another house. It will be announced  later when it will take place.-  On Friday evening Harry Tweddle  made a record run from Keremeos  and back in his big Cadillac auto.  His little girl was taken seriously ill  and he had to make the trip hero for  the doctor. Latest reports are that  his daughter has taken a turn for the  better'tiiid is now getting along nicely-  What might have been it serious  accident occurcd on White street, between Scott and Daly avenues, on  Thursday evening of last week, when  Mr. Smith's horses became frightened  of tin automobile, which was coming  out of the garage. The horses bolted  into the ditch at the side of the road  and a piece af piping that was lying  there got caught in the wheel and was  wound around the axel three times  before the horses could bo stopped.  Fortunately the rig did not upset and  no oik.1 was injured.  FISHING   RODS  The following are tho readings showing temperature, . etc., for the week  ending.

Don't forget the "At Home" at Mrs.  .McCallum on Friday 17th.  Miss Bromley has been assisting in  G. G. Keeler's store during the past  few days.  XV. li.

Mr/iind Mrs. G.G.Keeler paid their  brother at Republic, Wash., a visit  during the Easter holidays., >  Mr. R. II. Cartiiieheal, manager of  the Bank of Commerce here spent the  Easter week end in Grand Forks.  Most of  the  Keremeos  cattle have  been driven out and arerroW grazing  -peacefully, on their respective  ranges.  Mrs.   R.   H.   Carmichael  spent   the  Easter   holidays  as  tlie guest of Mr.  'and   Mrs.   Major Moods' in Penticton.  The daughters of Japan will hold an  entertainment and  rice supper in the  grounds  of Mr. F. B.   Gibson on May  1st.    Further announcements later.  'Rev.  G.  T. McKenzie  preached  in  the Church, both   morning and  evening   to     large    congregations.     The  morning service   was a record for attendance...  The lumber for the erection of a cottage on Alex. Morrison's lot arrived  last week and is being drawn over to  the lot and the building is now under  construction.     ���������  Provincial Constable McGuffie, after-  being in charge of this district for a  vein- and a half, received an appointment as senior constable for the Fort  George district. Constable McGuffie  while in this district proved himself  an efficient member of tlie Provincial  police force. He left for the north on  Tuesday evening.    Good luck Mac.  Mrs. M. Bailey and daughter, Miss  Helen, Mrs. J. A. Brown, Miss Daly  and Miss Corrigan went up to Princeton on Monday morning's train where  they helped to cheer the boys on to  victory in their lacrosse game. They  also took in the ball in the evening  and returned to Keremeos on Tuesday  afternoon .after spending a most enjoyable time.  William Lowe and Charles Richter  returned Sunday from Osoyoos lake  with all the traps and accessories.  They have put in a very successful'  trapping season. In their catch they  got a. silver grey mu skrat, the pelt of  which is causing no little comment as  no one, so fill- as wc can find, has ever  seen or caught a muskratof that color.  Spraying is all over and the orchards  are out in blossom. There is nothing  prettier than to take a drive through  and by the different orchard lots at  this time of the year. To watch and  appreciate the beautiful'bloom as they  come forth; first tlie fine white blossom of the apricot and then the pink  bloom of the peach. Plums and cherries  come next with their beautiful tinted  white blossoms, these, are followed  by the tipples which blossom forth in  all there splendour' in their wonderful  tints on the white background, which  represent clearly to what variety they  belong.  The fiicture on "Jean Valjean" given  by Rev. G. T. McKenzie in the Town  Hull on Good Friday evening was very  ���������well intended. The lecture itself was  extremely interesting. Victor Hugo  draws a little on his imagination as is  shown by the almost superhuman  things Jean Valjean overcomes during  his lifetime. Dr. and Mrs. Schilstra's  little girl and boy sang a sweet duet  for which they received a hearty ovation. Mr. Cris Tickell sang -'Love Me  and The World is Mine" as a solo. Mr.  Tickell has a very line voice and his  singing was very much appreciated by  the audience.  FIRST GAME OF SEASON  'The'steam car pulled into Keremeos  n   little    before,    noon     on     Faster  Monday and    after  the    driver.   Mr.  Moscrop,  had   lunch,   nine   of the  lacrosse club players  wilh their mascot,  George Kirby,  started  for Princeton  at 1.10 p.m. At Hedley they picked up  Harold Townsend of that town to join  the team.    After'about 15 minutes  in  Hedley the car steamed  out and arrived -. iut Princeton at 3.50 p.   ni. J. D.  Grainger one nf the   players,   having  gone up oil the niorning train   was till  ready to join the team on arrival and  it was only a few  minutes  befoie the  team  was  on   the race  trackgrounds  rvady to .'play..' The game commenced  at 5 p.m.   The ball travelled from end  to end quickly right after theface off  and it was not  tnitil five minutes  had  passep that the first goal was  scored.  Tins canie fidm   some good  combination work amongst the Keremeos attacks, resulting  in   Hunter  Inking- a  good pass 'anil   beating the Princeton  cusdonian. Princeton pressed very hard  in an attempt to equalize but the good  work of the  Keremeos defence held-  them and before the'whistle had blown  Etches had added another goal for- the  Peaclieaters,   with  Princeton  scoring  immediately     after.     Quarter     time  Keremeos 2.,   Princeton 1.   The  next  quarter started out ata lively clip with  Princeton  looking, as if   they  would  draw level.    After a deal  of scuffling  lit the Princeton end of the field Grainger took a pass-arid-put Keremeos two  goals  in the lead.    Keremeos  worked  hard to add to their score in this quarter, shot after shot was  rained  in on  Russell,   the Princeton  goal    keeper,  bnthe was playing a magnificent game  stopping shots that  looked like sure  goal's in   rapid  succession.    Princeton  after this bucked  up again and  added  another goal before half time.    In the  third qiiiii ^er" neither   side managed  to score. The foiirthand last saw both  teams working hard and it seemed as  if it was a case of who could stand the  most.    Armscroiig in goal  wa s playing in  fine shape  for Keremeos and  with Brown in front of. him  it made a  pretty stiff wall to'penetrate. Hunte>;  for Keremeos added another and with  only three minutes to play, Princeton  got one though  this  caused  great excitement as Princeton   was  only  one  goal  behind but although they  worked hard they did not get  the desired  point  before  the   final  whistle blew,  leaving Keremeos victorious by 4 goals  to 3.

Keremeos, B.C.  GENERAL NEWS  A petition signed by Severn 1 property owners of Penticton was recently  forwarded to Judge Swanson, thr  chairman of the Arbitration Board,  asking for his resignation on the  grounds that he had been biassed in  hiri decision on matters at variance  between the property owners and the  railway company. This was answered by his Honour in a short address,  last week, in which he defined to accede to the request made, stating that  tho accusation was unjust.  Thomas XV. Henshaw, the author,  is dead. fie wrote under the norn'de  plume of Bertha��������� M. Clay, and gave  the world some 200 novels.  The zinc smelter which was built at  Frank, Alberta, several years ago by  a French company, collapsed the other-  day and sank into an old mine, which  has not been worked for ton years.  The smelter never.treated a pound of  ore after it was built.  The C. P.'R. are spending $18,000,-  000 this year in double-tracking some  sections of their line.  Eight passengers in an auto had a  miraculous es*cape while returning to  Greenwood from Midway last Saturday. The car went over a embankment -near Boundary Falls, the occupants were thrown out and the auto  turned turtle. None of the occupants  were hurt and the car was not damaged in any way.  The recently-issued order by the  Post Office Department that all letters  containing coin which were transmitted through the mails were to be sent  to the dead letter office unless registered, has been suspended. The new  regulation caused much adverse criticism throughout the country, and a,  day or two ago the deputy minister  stated thtit amounts up to one dollar  would be accepted unregistered. An  order has now been given out that  letters containing coin are to be forwarded in the regular mails. At the  post offices a large number of letters  which infringed the ride were sent to  the dead letter- office and eventually  returned to their senders. The amended regulation will be in force indefinitely.  H. C. N.
