V, & E-  Work  Between  Abbotsford   and  Chilli-  wack Will Soon Be Finished  Good progress is being made on the  contract of building a twenty-mile section of the ,V. V..&.E. Railway between Abbotsford and Chilliwack by  Messrs. J, W. Stewart & Co., contractors, ^according to Mr. A. Kellett, superintendent in charge. Two hirn-  dred rheu are working on the grade  and three steam shovels are being used in rock cuts six miles east of Abbots-  fords. . .,.'���������  "There is no reason why the contract should not be completed  inside  of ninety, days.   Beyond the rock-cuts  the route rs across a level  stretch,'  said Mr. Kellett.  B. C.  PORTLAND   CEMENT CO.  Work Now Actively in Progress,  Getting Ready for Plant, Now on Order  REPRESENTATIVES BRIEF VISIT  POLICE riNVESTIGATION  The usual even tenor of- our way in  Hedley was a bit disturbed on Saturday when chief constable Bun bury arrived from Greenwood with instructions from the' Attorney-General's department to investigate charges of  neglect of duty on the part of Con -  stable Sproule against whom complaint  had been made by Rev. G. R. B. Kinney who had written to the. department specifying certain particulars  wherein he considered the constable  negligent: ..  Among the things complained of  was that of allowing the death of the;  late W. T. Atherton to he brought  about at the Hotel Similkameen  through alcoholism and'permitting  drunkenness to go on generally in the  town unchecked. The complaint also  set forth that .the constable was "hancV  in glove with, the red light district"  and that he was either "unable or too  indifferent to cope with the situation."  The  investigation took  place in the  court house on Monday morning when  Mr.  Kinney was  required  te> be.  pre.--  sent and  although nothing was taken  under oath Mr. Kinney was subjected'  to a more  or less rigid cross exarnina-!  tion  both  by  the   chief anel by Mr.  Sproule  who   had  the   right   to ask  questions  in his  own  behalf.    In  his  statement   at the   investigation   Mr.  Kinney qualified the language- of his  letter te> the department consider-ably  and expresseil his high opinion   e>f Mr.  Sproule  in  every  way  except in his  official capacity.  . L. H. Patten was examined to elicit  further eletails as to the Atherton matter and A. Megraw regarding the  moral condition of the town and enforcement of the law, as well as Mr.  Sproule's conduct and capability as an  officer-.  Mr. Kinney seemed to have been  somewhat indiscreet irr the language  used in the letter of complaint which  conveyed graver meaning than he appears to have inte;neleel. That his action was inspired by excess of zeal for  tho cause of moral by rather than  through any personal ill-will for Mr.  Sproule we have no doubt whateyer  and his disavowal of personal antipathy we think should be accepted  without question. The most unfortunate lack in his letter was the absence of a sufficient amount of that  "charity which thinketh no evil."  It would, however, ill-become us to  finel any fault with what we believe to  have been the general intent of the  letter, for the Gazette has on more than  one occosion taken very similar ground  with  this difference, that in knowing  While in Princeton last week L. W.  Shatford was plea seel at the vigorous  mariner in which the Cement people  are going-to',work' anel particularly  pleased that W.J. Build who is a  thoroughly practical cement man is  giving his full attention to the putting  in of the plant. With continuous capable management the industry is  picked for-a pronounced success.  The Princeton Star- has .been'-.informed'.by-.-the secretary that they expect to begin manufacturing cement  on the first of November e>f this year;.  TheStar gives the following, details  learned'frorn the secretary concerning  the plant:  The main building, 430x6*0 with solid  stone walls 2 ft. thick, 22 ft. high, the  stock house, 200x6*0, the boiler room  with a capacity for 7 lar'ge tubular  boilers and engine house will be first  constructed, the office, laboratory and  assay department,'-machine shop, coal  drier and other, minor buildings following as quickly 'its'muscle anel,money  can build them.  STEAM AND ELECTRICITY  The machinery is all of the latest  design, specially chosen by Mr. Buelel  A large Corliss engine of 750 h. p. will  at first be installed to be duplicated  until 1500 ,h. p. is developed. A 500  kilowatt dynaino will generate electricity, for power and light for the  cement works and also for distribution  throughout East Princeton. The machine shop'is''planned to be the best  money and skill can produce so that  all repairs can'be done at home, and  outside customers accommodated.  WILL  DOUBLE  CAPACITY  This plant is the first unit to be in-  stalleel with a capacity of 700 barrels  per day,'a second unit will be constructed, thus doubling ,the output.  The elemand for cement is so great  that the product for two years in advance could now be negotiated if desired. A lime kiln with a capacity of  200 bushels per week is now being  erected and willshortlv be in operation  to supply the needs of the big masonry  works. For their own immediate purposes the company will require 300,000  bricks, a brickrnaking plant living installed for that purpose anel to supply  the commercial demands for this article anywhere.  REDUCE PRICE  HALF  No cement will be sold under 3  months' age and a stock of 50,000 bbls.  will always be in store. The present  price of cement in Princeton is $6.75  per bbl., retail, which will be reduced  to $3.00 when manufactured at these  works. Owing to all the compotent  parts of cement including coal, being  found close to the works, the cost of  production will be less than usual, and  there will be no necessity to ally with  any merger.  The many friends in Hedley nt L.  AV. Shatford, M. P. P. were pleased to  meet him when he got. off the train  fremi the .west on.. Friday last, accompanied by H. A. -Turner,, road .supervisor'for the district They had made  a Hying trip to Princeton where some  urgent business had called them, anel  as they also had to go at once to the  eastern part of the riding they decided  to make this Hying trip through and  to return for a more extended. visit  later 011 in about two weeks time.  Mr. 'Shatford- was looking'.in the  pink of condition, with evidence of  more rugged health than at any time  for- years past. '  ��������� The past session of the house has  been one of the most import-ant since  he entered the: legislature eight years  ago, the time being, niore given to  work than to irrelevant debate which  hael retarded the work of tlie average,  session in former pari nnients.  While here he- received congratulations from -friend's on the success which  attended his efforts in securing a generous, appropriation for the elistr.ict.  With regard to the ambitious trunk  road across the province which the de.  partment of public Works were undertaking he said that the present year  would see a goodly portion of it built  arid underway audit was the intention to get the portion of it in the  Similkameen -ridirier in as good shape  as possible to maintain the reputation  of the district.  They left on Saturday lor Iveremeos  where Mr. ShatforelV runabout auto  from Penticton would meet, them and  on it they would make the journey to  the eastern part of the riding.  AN OUTSIDER'S OPINION  Prof. Van Deman   Likes the  Appearance of the Similkameen  On his way through lo the coast  last fall where he. was a judge at the  Apple Show Prof. Van Deman took  some notes anil gave his impressions  to the Fruit Magazine- as follows:- '.'''������������������  At Oroville, which is almost on the  Canadian boundary, the SiniilkauH'im  pours its torrent of waters into; the  Okanagan. This is itschief tributary,  and my way led up the valley of this  rushing si ream for many miles to tliiy  thriving town of Kerenieos, in British  Coloiiibia. While the land in tho"v.-il-:  ley proper lies beautifully for fnrining-  GAME LICENSES  What It Costs an Outsider to Hunt and  Fish in B. C.  Victoria, B. C. April 21���������The cus:  boniary annual notices with respect to  hunting 'tid fishing licenses for nonresidents of the province have just  been issued from the provincial game  department.     The fees prescribed are:  For general license, gooel for one  year to cover all game and fish that  may he taken under existing laws and  ���������regulations, $100: spring bear hunting  licence, good from Jan. 1 to July14,  $25; birds, season, $50: anglers'' license  gooel for- erne year, $5.  Licenses may be taken out at the office of the provincial game warden or  that of any government agent. It is  expected that a greater number of  game licenses will this year be issued  than in any previous year in Provincial history. Already many anglers'  and hear hunters' licenses have been  issued.  and fruit-growing,   the mountain.- .11 e-  very 'clo>e and', stock, ranching���������'������������������::iVd'  mining are   the principal industries at  present1.   But on tlie beautiful anel fertile bench lands about Kerenieos there-  are many orchards hi the  most-flourishing condition.    Surrounded by pro-,  tecting mountains,   mild   in   climate  anil   watered  bv  streams  that   have  their sources in   rugged, snow-covered  heights, there can be mi more suitable  place  for growing  apples, pears, apricots,   peaches anel   almost any  either  fruit of the  temperate'zones.   There,  in pioneer elays, when   there'were no  neighbors other than   the aboriginal  Indians, Mr. Richter, a plucky and industrious German, planted..,the first  orchards of that section.    Now he has  not- only  orchards, 'but a great farm  anel, a home that might be envied by a  prince.    ..Anel   it  is   not   "out of the  world," for the Great Northern Railway has built a branch  that passes up  the valley and is destined soon te> reach  the   great    terminus   at   Vancouver  across the Cascaele range.  From Keremeos to Penticton at the  foot of Lake Okanagan, I had the  most delightful stage ride of my life.  Although the way led over a mountain spur and through a narrow elefile  the road was good and the service all  that could be desired. One who appreciates the grandeur of Nature  would be charmed by the scenery.  ANOTHER    LIBERAL    REFUSES  To Approve of  Reciprocity Agreement.

The principal events of the past  week in this artful gauie were the second contest for the ladder top played  between Messrs.

In the first the former match had  been won by Mr. Rolls who was thus  called on to defend the title, anel to  illustrate, the glorious uncertainty of  the game, the decision was again reversed by Hincks winning out on a  score which showed him eight holes  up.

It was the first attempt  at baseball this season for- Hedley  players and as a game it "was a caution." The railroaders, had a southpaw pitcher that was puzzling for a  bit on the start but after the locals  gob his measure they cantered arouiul  the bags like a batch of Maiathom-rs  exercising in the "gym" until it be--  came a weariness to the fle-sh fur  .spectators. The score was kept up to  the seventh innings when it was l(i to  2 in favor- of the locals and then some  of the Hedley youths got leg weary  anil went home. The remainder kept  it going for a spasm or two longer  dining which the congestion on llu-  bases so bewildered the .scorers that  they lost all track of tallies and nobody knows unto this dav how it  stood at the end.  $10.00 REWARD  For  evidence   that   will   convict   any  paitii'.s  of   trespass   or removing  pro-  ! perty from the Bull Dog Mine.-..

The apparent loss of interi-st in imperial affairs and,Canada's part therein on the part of Sir-Wilfrid Laurier,  is proving both a puzzle and., a.sore,  elisappointinent to Canadians inibueel  with imperial sentiment. Just a few  months ago English papers gave out  as a. news item in a tone of more, or  less wonderment the fact that in preparing a. programme for the forth-  coining Imperial Conference in Lon-  elon, Canada among all the colonies,  was the only one that- had faileel to  lespoud with any suggestion of topic  fore onside-ration or line of action tc  be. taken. Now we have it given out  from Ottawa that there is eloubt as to  whether the Canadian premier will  even be there. This is in very.disappointing   contrast    to   the    state   of  affairs in 1S97  when  Sii 'Wilfrid's at-  1  tendance  at  the  diamond   jubilee  of  the  late Queen   Victoria    was    little  short of  an   olel  Roman   triumph   for  both himself and   for  Canada.     Then  he was fresh from the notable  session  of the Canadian parliament which had  just, granted   the   Canadian   imperial  preference, and imperially   he was the  ��������� hero   of .the  hour, he raltle.il  with acclaim     and     bearing   as     his     laurel  wreath Kipling's  poem   "Our Lady of  the Snows/'    But now    the   suspicion  ever clinging  to that fatal pact made  by Fielding anel Patterson which   like  the ghost of Banquo   will   follow bun  to the feast   anel dim the   radiance of  the halo of '')7   is no doubt, exercising  a   powerful   influence  on   his  present  attitude.     The agreement itself is   in  all conscience  bail enough   by  way of  stigma upon Canada for so important  iiii occasion imperially   as  the  forth-  e.'oming coronation  and   imperial conference,  is  bound  to  be, without Sir-  Wilfred making it worse   by his   present attitude of aloofness.     For Goutiness'   sake,   in   the    interests   of    the  great country  he  represents, let him  try   to  squelch   for  a  little   time   his  AJioru JMtoPRK, subdue for a, bit,  that  great penchant of  hi.s   for   playing   to  the gallery  and go and face  the thing  like a man   even if it does impose the  difficult task of trying to assure them  over there that black is white.  ���������������������������(_lmiT-er.ce How!

A reward is  offered for information which will secure a conviction.  John -Cameron pump man at .the  lake went out on Monday's train  bound for thej coast. The increase of  water, did awtiy with his job at the  lake and he wanted a change of scene  and air* en- othewise he could have had  a job in the mine.  Mark Hetrrck,  who has   been  cm-  ployed in the  mill for the past three  , years during the greater- part of which  time he has taken a shift on the bat-  - teries as amalgamator, left on Monday  for a, visit to his home in  Salem, Ore.  Rev. A. E, Bruce, incumbent of the  Princeton congreg.-ition of the Anglican church, has accepteel the parish  of Abbotsford anel will enter on his  new duties at the end of this month.  He will be succeeded by the Rev. Mr.  Williams, recently of the Province of  Saskatchewan.  Rev. G. R. B. Kinney preached his  last sernon irr Heelley on Sunday night.

H. H. Messenger had a busy day on  Sunday.

The force j  employed is small as a larger gang i  could not  be worked as economic-ally.  The higher.-' temperature of the past  week has hael a.very marked effect in  the way of increasing water supply in  the streams and the result is pleasing  to the management of the local mine  anel works. On Saturday they were  able to take steam off the big new Corliss engine and allow .the big Doble  water-wheel lo handle the loael but a  certain amount of-team was still required in the cylinders of the air compressor. In a few day more .there will  likely be water enough to move everything and the steam engines will be  given as long a vacation as Mr. J.  Pluvius will permit. It is hoped'the  vacation will be at least four months  and a longer holiday still for them  would be appreciatetl.  A very successful Easter service was  held in the temporary English church  room in Princeton on Easter morning  at 11 o'clock. The chancel stand and  altar were beautifully decorated with  lilies and other flowers, The musical  items of the service were "Christ Our  -Passover," Humphrey; To Derrm,  Lawes; "The St rife is O er," Palestrina;  Kyrie, Mendelsohn.

A letter from Mr. MacHaffie reports  very greatly increased traffic into the  north conn try this spring with a cor-  respontling increcise in value in real  -estate. As an evidence of this the  price of lots in South Forfc George  where he is, opens this spring at  double the value at which they were  sold a year ago. But there's no golf  there.  Mental appears to have hael a soporific effect upon Greenwood. . The Ledge  anel its cut-respondents have much to  say of certain sleeping stunts performed there, with and without approval  of said correspondents. One kicker  thereat was a clergyman. The exasperating effect which sleeping in public is saiel to produce upon preachers  possibly accounted for the kick.  All the reserved seats have been  taken for Mrs. Erown's concert tomorrow night and the sale of general  admission tickets litis also been considerable, which ensures a big house.  The programme is a select one and an  enjoyable time may be counteel on.  Ticket holders should note that the  entertainment will begin at S o'clock  sharp and all should be seated before  then.  Some of the fir trees killed by caterpillars have been taken down. A sharp  lookout should be kept this summer J  and a vigorous campaign instituted  against them as soon as they make  their re-appearance. The Gazette  wrote the department of agriculture  at Victoria last .summer for suggestions as to the proper means to combat the evil and received in reply tlie  r-ee-oinnie-ntlation to use a spray consisting of 2 lbs. arsenate; of lead elis-  solvi'd in -10 gallons of water anil, spray  on trees as soon as the- caterpillars put  in an appearance. This seems to be a  simple and inexpensive, methoel and  should be applied faithfully. There is  no use in bewailing a preventable evil  and putting forth no elVort to restrain  it.

The  person who will wilfully violate them  is deserving of the extreme penalty  provided by .law aiid,ejntitled to no  more consideration than' a coyote.  During the week we have seen an interdicted person staggering under a  jag large enough for two or three  people to carry and been forced tow-it-  ness and hear the demoralizing effects  of liquor on a youth of tender years.  Were these, isolated, crises' we wotild  pass them .'up, hut they are not, and  we voice the opinion of the community when we say that such evidence eif  open violation of tho liquor laws must  stop. It must not be inferred that the  hotel men are the ones to blame. They  value their licenses too highly to take  such,chances'as that-'. It is the.miserable creature who will get the booze  at the bar and give it in secret to the  interdicted person that causes the mischief. But it should be possible to  catch anyone who makes a practice of  so doing and bring him to justice1.  winter in the east was not -exceptionally cold but that it was very long  and tlie snow deep. He has not decided yet whether he will lemiiin in  the valley or go back to Alberta.  Miss McConnell, who with her sister, a widowed lady of Oklahoma., recently purchased a fruit lot west of  town, is having it cleared ready for  planting. Miss McConnell is a photographer and is prepared to do any  Avork in that line required in the valley. She expects her sister to join her  shortly when they will erect a residence on their property.  Church of England service was held  "here on'"Sunday last, Rev."Mr. Cle.land  changing the date from the last Sunday in the month to the 23rd in order-  to have the service come nearer to  Easter and give people here the regular Easter service. Since Mr. Cleland's  last visit here there has been a decided  increase in the number ot parishoners  and at the morning service there were  three children baptised. These were  the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Moody and the little sons of Mr. and  Mrs. T. C. Brooke and Mr. and Mrs.  Wrn. Mattice.  L. \V, Shatford, the member for Si-  liiilkameen, and road supei visor H. A.  Turner were in Kerenieos on Wednesday and Thursday on a tour of-inspection through the electoral district. Mr.  Shatford has been awaiting the arrival of his motor car at Penticton but  it was so long delayed that he decided  not to wait on it any longer and drove  over to Kererneos on Wednesday.  Thursday he and Mr. Turner took the  train to Princeton and on their return  to Keremeos on Saturday the. car was  here awaiting them. In making these  semi-annual trips through his riding,  seeing the electors and studying their  wants, Mr. Shatford shows an interest,  in his constituency evinced by few  members in either the local or federal  house.
