MR, SHATFORD'S VISIT  Similkameen's Representative Takes Another Trip Through District n.  BRITISH CAPITAL FOR B:C.  JflS. CLARKE  _-_/������-tc_-ime_--L@--  HEDLEY, E3. C_.  Clocks and Watches for Sale.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P.; came in  on Saturday's train from' Princeton.  He hsid been on the coast for a month  or so during part of which time he  spent a week in California. This time  oir his return from the coast,he came  in hy way of Spence's Bridge and Merritt, making the automobile trip over  from Merritt- to Otter Flat.  In California he mauaged to shake  off an incipient attack of bronchial  asthma contracted through some dustjr  drives over in the eastern portion of  the riding before lie went down to the  coast. -.   He has now been over every portion  of hi.s widely scattered constituency  since the session closed and a considerable  portion  of it  twice.      Although  the appropriation  which   he secured  for his riding this   year is a most generous one, he say's that it can easily be  used over the large mileage of roadway in the riding and"> many portions  of road that- are  much iu need of improvement will still have to go without.   The percentage of it to be expended in new roads   this year in proportion to that used'for-'the.improvement of existing roads is smaller-/ The  principal new roads -being built this  year are the roadway up the creek between Penticton  and Green Mountain  and that along the west shore of Dog  Lake from Okanagan Falls toKaleden,  a few new roads in.the.Pi-tnceton vicinity and some additional patches on  Sidley and Rock  mountains as well as  the new road to the depot at Hedley  to cut out the present dangerous route  through the grounds of the Hedley  Gold  Mining Co.    Some   of these are  real necessities and  the, others good  business in that they will furnish good  th.orin.i^.hfiir,es:..that.will be  capable- of  permanent improvement with every  eleillar that is spent on  them while the  portions that they will cut out are not  capable of  permanent  improvement  and the amount spent on   theiu each  summer is just so much to be washed  away each spring with  the melting  snows as in the case of the sand hills  on  the Green   Mountain   road   from  Penticton  where the road   bed was as  shifty as the course of the Mississippi.  The desirability of the new road to  the depot at Hedley is sufficiently obvious to  all residents here who know  the dangerous condition of the present  roadway,   particularly in   the  early  spring,  and only a few days ago,  in  the middle of the dog days  when the  road should be safer than at any time  of the year we had an   instance of  what may happen  there in the  accident that occurred to Indian Donnell's  boy in  driving down  that hill, for a  road that a hayrake cannot be driven  over safely is not fit to drive passengers over to and from trains.  In road repairs the West Fork of  Kettle River will receive considerable  attention in view of the large volume  of freighting which will have to be  done over it this year through the  buileling of the Kettle Valley railway.  Tin? constituency is indeed fortunate  whose representative will keep as  closely in touch with the wants of the  people in every part of his riding as  Mr. Shatford has always made a point  of doing,  Haifa Million Sterling Will Be Invested  in Sound Securities and in Timber  ',"���������.'������������������     Lands in This Province  Bringing back the news that he has  formed'a. company in  England of half  a million  sterling capitalization, having as its object investment in   this  province,   Mr.  Charles J. Loewen, of  the local firm  of Loewen & Harvey,  returned to the city- early   yesterday  morning from Europe.   Mr. Loewen  states that the capital of the organization   was   almost  coi'iipletely ' underwritten   before'he left Great'Britain  and it was the intention- t'o-commence  investing here in about two months.  Securities of  all   sound   descriptions  will be taken up, while timber will also  likely figure in the financial operations  of the new company to be represented  here hy his firm. '���������'  VANCOUVER EXHIBITION  NOT   SATISFIED   WITH   GRADE  GAME BIRDS DISTRIBUTED  About 900 Pheasants Will Be Provided  From the Government Breeding Farm  . Xews-Advcrtisei-  '"So'fat- this year we have distributed about 470 -Mongolian pheasants  from the new- govern men t breeding  far in at Chilliwack���������9W0 to the Chilli-  wack and - Ladner districts on the  mainland, .and'the bit lance on Vancouver Island", states 'Bryan Williams  provincial game warden. "We have  about. 400 more.birds to turn out this  season.  ���������   . - ��������� ",  '���������The Mongolian pheasant has heretofore been a- stranger to British Columbia, the prevailing breed in this  province being the Chinese Ringneck.  The provincial^ government litis...met'  with great success, in breeding the  birds. They are turned loose when  about six weeks of age."  WAS GREAT FARMER  Rennie the Noted Seedsman Parses Away  ���������Did Much for Agriculture  Farmers throughout .Ontario will be  touched  with regret on receiving the  news of the death of William Rennie.  Mr. Rennie represented the best type  of the farmers of Canada, and did perhaps more   than any other one person  in practical ways to build  up agricultural ideals and;achieve their- realization in the province.     His work in establishing seed standards,  in importing Clydesdale stock,   and in model  farm practice was of the highest value  and in organizing the provincial model  farm at the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph,   he set a fine tradition  going. His book on "Successful Farming," is to be followed by a text book  on  "Agriculture," just recently completed.     Socially, Mr. Rennie will be  missee1 as a worthy, high-minded and  amiable citizen.���������Toronto Worlel  HOSPITAL DONATIONS for JULY  WHAT JOE THINKS  K. A. C.

"What do you think of the Ottawa  govern men t's proposal to form a .Canadian navy?"  "I think that it is a waste of money  I. think that a navy, instead of being  any protection to Canada or the empire, will be a distinct menace. If Canada wants to help they should make a  grant from year to year to assist the.  navy. Then the money woulel be made  available-every dollar of it would  count. As it is, half of the money  will go ingraft, or at least one quarter of it, and the rest will be wasted  on useless ships.''  Mr. Martin will remain iu Nancou-  ver several months, returning to London in November.  As indic;,feel in last week's issue the  Gr-and Trunk  strike  is having a bail  effect in  retarding the work of instal-.  ling  new equipment at the works of  the Hedley Gold Mining Co.    Some of  the  machinery is .stalled  on the way  and no satisfaction can be obtained as  to when it may   arrive in Hedley.    In  other cases  where  the  machines are  ready to be shipped the manufacturers  are notifying the manager that owing  to the strike they   cannot get the rail-  to accept  the shipment  to feirward in  the-,  manner   agreed   under  contract.  The  Great  Northern   receive  most of  their  eastern   shipping   through   the  Granel Trunk and that is how so much  of it happens to be lie-el upin the strike  It is possible- therefore that in the case  of  machinery   not  already   loa.ded on  Grand Trunk cars anel en route it may  he shipped by (.'. I\ 12. to Grand Forks  and   brought   from    there   by   Great  Northern.  On Thursday, August 18th. Merchants' Day, there will be a convention of all the grocers in British Columbia, under the auspices of the Vancouver Retail Grocers' Association.  Visiting guests will be entertained by  the Grocers' Association at a banquet  and will subsequently be invited to  visit the exhibition.  It is not generally known that in  the 20-acre park aeljoining and part of  the exhibition grounds, there are some  trees as large as any giant in Stanley  Park. .The hollowed interior of one of  these trees will be utilized by the Exhibition Association for something  novel.  Admission to the fairgrounds will be  by means of the type of registered  turnstile in use at all world fairs. Another big fair feature haing observed  is the sale of coupon ticket books for  the entire fair. Six-day ticket books  may be procured for $2.00, six night-  ticket books for $1.00 and six children's  Licket books for $1.00. Each book entitles the holder to grandstand admission as well as grounds.  'In order te> particularly encourage  educational exhibits at the Vancouver-  Exhibition, the Association have de-  cided to admit all exhibits of that  nature without any entry fee.  ��������� The Exhibition grounds of the Vancouver Fair will be well equrppeel with  telephone service, postal and banking  facilities; lavatories, parcel and bicycle  rooms anel also special rest rooms for  women and children.  A trip to Vancouver at the time of  the Exhibition, August 15-20, will also  afford the tourist a special opportuni ty  of taking many side-trips of interest  about the Queen city of the Pacific  and vicinity. Excursion rates will be  in effect in many directions for such  travellers, while'   Vancouver    itself  furnishes many sights to he particularly noted, such as Stanley Park, the  great mills of the Canadian Western  Company, formerly the Fraser River  Mills, the beautiful Capilano Canyon  in North -Vancouver and the unsurpassed scenery of the North Arm  route to Indian river.  Wafer and stabling for horses, stalls  for cattle, pens for sheep anel swine  and teed for poultry will be supplied  without charge from the opening until the close of the .Exhibition. Hay,  .straw arid grain for live stock will be  orr sale at the grounds at market  prices.  Of unique interest in the list of  prizes offered in the Natural History  section of the Vancouver- Exhibition  will be those for the best collection of  200 insects which .are injurious to  Canadian agricultural or horticulture,  exhibits to show specimen of injury  done; also prizes for the best collection  of weeds which are injurious to Canadian farm and garden crops.  Arrangements are being made to  hold a great wood-chopping competition at the Vancouver Exhibition.  Valuable prizes are being offered fortius contest anel it is anticipated that  the number of entries will-he large.  "Fighting the Flames" one of the  amusement concessions tei be seen at  the Vancouver Exhibition, has attracted thousands of persons wherever exhibited���������first at the White City in  Chicago, and since then at every  world's fair west of the Windy City  and in nearly all the largest western  citias. The show exhibits buildings in  flames and features thrilling escapes  from burning houses with all the  modern fire-fighting appliances at  work.  Among the many special prices offered by various firms anel persons in  this province and other portions of  Canada for the Vancouver Exhibition  will be one of 105 prime fruit trees of-  fered by Brown Bros., nurserymen,  Ltd., Ontario, for the best display of  fruit from each of the following districts: Okanagan Valley, District west  of Lytton, District east of Lytton.  W. .1. Walker,   president of the British-American lave Stock Association,  | who  is touring  Alberta  and   Saskat-  J chewan in the  interest of his firm anel  ! the Vancouver   Exhibition, expects to  have on   exhibition at,  the Vancouver-  Fair the   best specimens   of high class  horses and cattle' to  ern Canada.  Surveyors Are  Doing Further Work in  Hope Mountains, (  That Hill refuses to allow any contracts to be let on the present surveys  of route over Hope Mountains is the  effect of recent railway news sent out  from St. Paul. Other engineering  parties are being sent out with instructions to reduce the grade in order to  obtain a route on which they will  agree to build, and in case this is not  obtainable a further delay is likely tc  ensue before they can make up their  minds to undertake the expense of the  tunnel between the Tulameen and the  Coquihalla.  On his last trip in Mr. Kenuedy  started a party eif his engineers at  work revising the line at Otter Flat in  a manner which hidieateel that all intention of driving the tunnel hael been'  aban'doneil for the present and a new  location of the line was being made on  the opposite side of Otter Lake from  that at first interuled, and this new location left no ground for doubt that  the intention was te> go up the Otter  and on from there to the headwaters  of the Cold water arid thence down the  Coquihalla. This circumstance would  tend to throw more or lese discredit-  on the accuracy of the report alleged  to have been sent out from St. Paul.  If excuse for further delay is sought,  of course tire heavy grades over the  Hope Mountain would be as convenient as auy other. In fact it is the  most convenient as the public are  more or less educated in the belief of  insuperable difficulties in finding a  grade that is sufficiently practicable  to induce experienced railroaders to  builel over.  PRAIRIE CROPS  Dr. Saunders' Review of the Situation in  Manitoba���������G. N. R. Report are  Favorable  Ottawa, July 26.--Dr. W. Saunders,  director of Dominion experiemental  farms, wires from Brandon saying the  crop will be light. Some fields are well  up to the average, but. others have  short straw. Crops north of the railway are in good average, but to the  south they will be light.  Winnipeg, July 26.���������The crop outlook is improving according to'the report of the Canadian Northern railway  issued today. It shows that many  wheat fields are in good condition. In  some districts rain is needed.  OFFERS HANDSOME CUP  FOR MINERAL EXHIBITS  Vancouver July 28.���������Manager Roy  of the Vancouver Industrial exhibition  has announced that the directors have  decided to grant a hanilsonie cup for  competition among mining exhibits  which Nelson board of tra^n has ele-  cideel to senel to Vancouver's lirst fair-  Hope is entertained in Vancouver that  the exhibit can be retained here as a  permanent exhibition.  LESS LIQUOR CONSUMED  A recently  issued official   return of  the Department of Inland Revenue of  Canada shows  that under the License  System  generally   prevailing   in   the-  Dominion, the consumption   of spirituous    liquors   is    steadily    tleclining,  while   the use of  beer and   porter has  gained but only in almost microscopic-  ratio.    During  the fiscal  year closing  March 31st last,   the people of Canada  consumed   spirits   to   the  amount   of  .815  gallons per  capita,   as   compared  with .80(5   in the   year  previous.    The  consumption   of beer, etc.   per heael of  population, was 5.276 gallons, wine .97  gallons,  and of  tobacco 2.910 pounds.  In the  proceeding  year the consumption per head of beer was 5.84S gallons-  wine .85  gallons and   of tobacco  2.0.10'  pounds.     As   compared   with   thirty  years ago.   when upwarels  of two gallons of liquor per capita was ave-iagcd.  the   present usi>   of liquor  throughout  the   Dominion is   very small.    On   the  other hand   there have been  slight in-  be found in we*st-   creases   in   the  consumption   of   beer  mil of tobacco.

Write for information to  JAS ROY,  'Manager and Secretary,  Vancouver Exhibition Association  COPPER  County Court of Yale  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The   effects   of    the   Grand   Trunk  strike    while very annoying anil  in-  con veini.en.t.to the general public   nevertheless serve to bring home  certain  lessons that it is well to keep in mind.  One thing it should  show   us   is  that  when "the fathers  of confederation"  did their work   in knitting  the  provinces   together    they   theorized   correctly, and to-day   we-are having  demonstrated   to us  the  truth  of   their  theories.    Opponents of confederation  also theorized    anel   argued    that   the  natural   course  of  traffic    was   north  and south   anel that it was  useless  to  attempt  to   make   it   flow   east   and  west.    Well,   to-day    we   are  able   to  see how strongly the stream has  set  in   its  eastward  and  westward  flow,  and were it   not   that the  C. P. Ii.   is  moving freely     with   no  existing dispute",  between   the  company   and  its  employees,    we  would  realize   to an  even  greater extent    how  much   the  eastern  and western provinces  of the  Dominion  are  dependent   upon  each  other   when a little temporary strike  interfering with traffic in only one of  the avenues of trade   between the east  anel the west    will  so   soon  manifest  itself   in   congestion.     A.   certain   a-  nioiint of traffic must move north and  -south for the interchange of commodities that are the products of different  zones,    but   nevertheless   traffic   will  move along national lines   and  is doing so to-day in an  enormous  volume  both in the United States and Canada  where   the factories   of   the east   are  equipping many of   the  industries of  the west.    How long  the  people will  allow   their convenience  to  be   interfered  with   by   these little  industrial  boils and tumors   iu   the   body   politic  which   is   seen    in    these    occasional  clashes  between capital  and labor   is  anther question, but meanwhile,   they  must serve a little purpose in teaching  us  patience and   various   other   wise  things as they elkl with olel Job.

Fishing continues to he a popular-  pastime with IocjiI anglers. The Si-  milkameen is the favorite stream and  from it some fine large trout are being  taken.  There is nothing so gooel,  it might  not be gooder,  but with their ��������� good  ,..goods all the way through  "Estimo"  cigars are sure good.���������Rolls of Hedley  .has them.  Mr. H.

Hincks, local manager of the  Hedley branch of the Bank of B.N.A.  started on Tuesday for-the coast for  ��������� his holidays, going out over the Hope  trail, on which trip he was fortunate  in having the company of J. funis and  Roy Corrigan,  Sheriff AVentworth Ir. Wood, of  -Kamloops, was a visitor in town fora  few.hours this week. For a man who  has dismal duties to perform, the sher-,  > iff it remarkably kindly and affable.  There was nothing tragical about his  l. recent visit, an'tl hence he found everybody happy and well-disposed.  The Provincial Gazette notes incorporation of the Pollock Mines Co.  '���������"'"-'"This is a change in the basis of incorporation which was authorized by an  :.-agreement of the shareholders a couple  of months ago. The change will make  it easier to get capital to take up the  ���������stock.  M. K. Rodgers went out last Friday  .after spending a few������������������dnys -itirHetlleyr  When here his wrist Avas bitten by-  some insect anel was quite angry and  swollen looking before he left. He intended getting meelical treatment for  it in Spokane as Dr. McEwen was out  ���������of town for a few days before Mr.  Rodgers left.  The Oroville Gazette plumed itsself  last week on a harrelsonie colored poster got out by them for the baseball  tournament there next week.    They  ���������were quite nice; but what's the matter  with the Hedley Laoor Day posters in  two colors printed in this office? There  .are not.many offices outside tlie cities  ���������as well equipped for all kinds of work  as the Hedley Gazette, and it is only  about once in a hundred moons that  anything conies up which would make  it necessary for anyone to go outside  '.to city offices for printing.  Frank Logsdon who is one' of the  -nost enthusiastic fishermen in the  town came in a few days ago from a  tramp up the river with his basket  well-stockeel with speckleel beauties  ���������done up in ice and leaves, and presenting an appearance to gladden the  heart of a fisherman. The tunnel  mouth across the river above Bulldog  Brown's ranch is a natural refrigerator and still has a stock of last winter's ice, which comes handy for fishermen who may want to bring home  their ca.eeh looking in the best shape.  Messrs. W. D. MacMillan anel W. J.  Forbes returned on   Saturday  night  from their prospecting   tour up in the  Lillooetanel Blackwater country. They  both looked fresh anel fit after the prolong outing of some eight en- ten weeks  and  whether  they gathered   in  anything of note on the trip in the shape  of mineral locations they at all events  ���������obtained a .substantial   asset   in   the  physical betterment experienced. Mac.  who wemt out on the trip oonsiderably  burderieel with adipose tissue looked as  hard anel  honey as a  pine knot on his  return anil although   looking 80 or 40  pounds less in  weight only weighed  about 4 lbs less  than  when lie  went  away.     This week they have- cone out  in the direction of Riordan mountain  to look over their old stamping ground  which shows  that in  spite of the opportunity they have hael to view other  ���������fields,   the country around the Nickel  Plate and to the east of it still looks  good to them.  .-.The'produce of this year's tiiop from  Keremeos eirchards lias begun to come  i in. On Saturday last 0.; H. Carle  brought in a. mixed, load, consisting for  the '".most part of peaches ariel apples  with a few boxes of suia-11 fruit to accommodate'..'those' requiring thuin';  Delivery from now on will likely be  steady.'".-      ' -:  Bull-dog  Brown left for Vancouver  this week where he has made arrangements for a gooel < display of Siniilka-  meeii ores at the Vmn'couvet- exhi bition.  Heelley properties  will be well represented in the exhibit and iu addition  there  will  be good   specimens   from  Copper Mountain,  Bear Creek,  Summit Camp and the Roach River.    Mr.  Brown  deserves credit' for- the effort  he  has been  making t" put forward  strongly  the claims of the camp, and  bring Similkameen properties  to the  attention of mining investors.   He; has  rustled hard  in development   <jf  his  own claims and recognizes the futility  of prospectors hoping to  hold on and  make mines  of their properties without the assistance of mining   capital.  Believing as he does he is prepared to  good a good  layout to mining investors who will pirt  up. the money to  develop properties,  with   ample time  for testing before payment is'roiiuired  That is  the right attitude for claim  owners  to take, and will in- the end  benefit both themselves and the country.    It is to  be hoped that his effort  in this behalf may he as successful as  his views on  this eiuestion are sound.  Another interesting game of foursomes was played on Saturday last  when enough to make three sets turnout.   H.  A.  Hincks and   Miss  Bond  beat L. C. Rolls and Miss Smitherarn  on a score of 53 to 50 which   wheii  handicaps were  deducted  left   them  33 to 35.    A.   Megraw and Miss Emily  Jackson beat  D.  H.  Whiteman  and  Mrs. Rotheram,  score with handicaps  deducted 42 to 5_r.     P. H. French and  Mrs. Jarineson beat W.  Martin anel  Mrs.  Hamilton,  scores 40 to 40.     The  most interesting tussle of the lot was  that between Hincks anel his partner  and Rolls and his partner.    The scores  when leaving the sixth hole without  deduction of  handicaps,   found Rolls  and his partner two holes up and four-  strokes to the good.   An unlucky long  .distance approach  by  Rolls   on   the  difficult landing at the  hist hole or  "primrose way",  put  hiur over   the  steep bank, a milel  realization of "the  everlasting .bonfire" anel changed the  whole situation for him.    It took six  strokes   to   regain   the   bench   upon  which  the hole is situated and   three  more  to   hole-in and lost them   the  game although'they were one hole up,  even with the "primrose way" disaster  PHEDELY  IT GROW  Itfis destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in.

Fargo, of Barkerville, has pur  .'chased another three-acre lot from the  Keremeos Land Company, adjoining  his -former holdings.    Mr.  Fargo expects to visit Kerenieos next month.  Mrs. Carniichatil and little Miss Car-  rnichael, of Princeton, arrived Monday  on a visit at the home of the former's  parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Armstrong.  They were accompanied by Mrs. Lnw-  son.  Cap. Ruger, U.S. Collector of Customs at Orovrlle was in Kerenieos between trains on Saturday. He is contemplating a trip to Florida and took  a run up to discuss the matter with  W. M. Frith, who hael a number of  years' residence there.  Rev. Mr. Cleland, of Penticton, spent  the week in Kerenieos and on Sunday  held service morning and evening  with good congregations in atten-  elance. Mr. Cleland's visits to Keremeos are always appreciated by the  parishioners here. On his trip Mr.  Clelantl was accompanied by his little  daughter Mary.  Tommy Daly will occupy the pitcher's box and Charley Armstrong  will hold down second base for the  Conconully team ot the Oroville base  ball tournament commencing Sunday  next. Billy Pooler who played with  with Kerenieos two years ago will do  the receiving, anel we predict that  Conconuliy will come mighty close to  pulling down that $200 prize.  Frank Manery. the fourteen year  old son of Mr, and Mrs. Wm. Manery  of the lower valley, met with a rather  serious accident while working in the  hay meadow last week. He was jolted  from the hay rake which he was riding,  the horse ran away anil before he  could extricate himself was severely  injureel. Dr. McEwen was called in  anel did all that coulel be elone to relieve his sufferings.  We unelerstand that an engineer is  to be engaged to locate a wagon road  up the Ashnola and that a portion of  the road will probably be built this  fall. There has been more or less  agitation for this road for several  years anel now that homesteaders are  located there the demand is more  urgent. By bridging the creek in  several places a. good road can easily  be secured along the bottom land.  A very pleasant time was spent by  those who attended the ice cream  social given by the Methodist Ladies'  Aid at the homo of Mrs. Crooker on  Thursday evening. The.- weather was  perfect f"i- an evening's enjoyment  outdoors, the refreshments were up  to the n.-ual high standard provided  by the aid. and the grounds decorated  with o.hiiii-si- lanterns looked very attractive. The pi-iir-ec'il* netted about  $20.00  Government work on the roads has  been suspended here for the past two  -weeks in order to enable the ranchers  to get the necessary assistance in putting up their hay crop. Hay has proved a uniformly'- gooel crop' this year-  arid the-weather has been.most favorable for saying it in good condition.  A fatal accident occurred at Pentic  ton on Tuesday .evening of, last week  which resulted in the death of Edwin  Quant, a waiter on the C.P.R. steamer  Okanagan and brother of Harold and  Percy Quant of this place. Deceased,  who excelled in aquatic sports, was  diving from the deck of the ��������� new  steamer Kaleden into water of which  he did not know the depth. It proved  to be only about three feet deep and  with the.: momentum gained from a  twenty foot plunge he struck the bottom with sufficient force to. break his  spinal column and inflict other fearful  injuries. He was conveyed on the  steamer to Okanagan Landing and  taken to the Vernon hospital where  death ensued on Friday afternoon.  Percy Quant happened to be in Penticton the day following the accident and  heard'of it without hearing any name  mentioned. He left forborne in the  afternoon not knowing;that it was his  brothei-. and h.ul proceeded seime dis-.  tance before he '.learned the. sad truth.  He immediately returned to Penticton  anil, took the next boat to Vernon,  whe're he was joined later by Harold  and both attended the funeral on Sunday. Deceased was known to many  in Keremeos having visited his  brothers here on different occasions,  the last of which was the 24th of May.  He was about eighteen, years of age,  of good moral character aad highly respected by all who knew hiiii.  J. A.
