If  vou want the best bread  All Great Northern route- plans have  hooii fyled, and almost every foot of  right of Avay has  heen   bargained for  between   Midway   and   Oroville.  and  considerable of it in the Similkaineen.  The. route enters British Columbia, at  Midway, on" the Riverside addition, the  station being on the  boundary line,  and here, also the Greenwood branch  joins in on a " Y."    The road follows  westward on the^south bank of Kettle  river for four miles, when it swings up  Myers   creek,    almost   touching   the,  boundary, but doesn't cross. This puts  Chesaw within easy reach. After making ������i detour of Ed. McMynn's ranchi it  swings northward again through a low  pass in the hills on to the south bank  of the   main branch of Rock creek,  about 11 miles west of Midway,  at a  point just south of Tommy Hawkins'  ranch.     Continuing   westward along  the south bank of Rock creek and gaining elevation all the. way the mouth  of Baker creek is reached, but the line  here is high above the creek bottom.  Swinging southwesterly again up" Baker creek through Frank Edward'sranch  the route swings around to Davy Mc-  Bride's, which,  from an engineering  point-of view, is  A Strategic Point,  and here Chief Engineer Kennedy and  his staff of engineers''and right of way  men executed a veritable coup on the  C. P. R. in being' the. first to secure  right of way for the line which they  had selected. The C.P.R. line cuts the  McBride ranch but the V. V. <fe E. line  plays hide and seek through it, and at  the hoad of Baker creek crosses the  boundary line to Molson or Sidley  lake, 31 miles west of Midway.  Then comes the descent to Oroville,  about 20 miles distant and some 1S0O  feet lower. This presents the greatest  engineering difficulties, and it is on  this section that the .maximum grade  of 2.2 per cent, is touched several times.  For building, the heaviest work between Midway and Oroville is the portion along Myers creek, where a great  deal of rock work will be necessary.  "West of Oroville again through the  canyoi) of the  lower Similkaineen is  Phoenix, B. C, July 28.���������Yesterday  one of the McLean Brothers, contractors, of Vancouver, arrived here and  announced he would begin construction  on tlie Midway Ac Vernon railway at  once. It is said that the C.P.R. is not  back of the enterprise, though it will  likely be operated by the C.P.R. when  completed.  The charter for the Midway Ac Vernon railway is largely owned by Greenwood men. The new road will give  access to the rich West Fork country  and a short line to the Okanagan district and eventually thence to the  Coast.  The visit" of Gustave Loeb, of the  New York banking firm of Kuhn, Loeb  Ac Co., to the Boundary a few weeks  ago is said to be in connection with the.  financing of the Midway & Vernon.  Evidently the matter was satisfactorily  arranged. The. charter of the Midway  Ac Vernon is said to carry a subsidy of  some $11,000 per mile, and construction, for the most part, will not be  particularly heavy.  As the contractors under Patrick  Welch began work this week for the  V. V. & E. westward from Midway,  this will make two railways under  construction from that point.  C. I\ R.'x Opposition to Y.

GREEN MOUNTAIN NEWS  Mrs. L, A. Clark and her son Mr.  Gerald Clark left yesterday for the  Lewis and Clark exposition at Portland. They expect to be gone for  about a month.

Scarcity of steel at-Curlew has delayed completing the connection between Curlew and Midway, but this  will be obviated in a few- days.  The daily arrival of now outfits at  Midway, which are deploying out  along the route westward and making  camps, and the rilling up of all empty  buildings in the. town, has given the  people of that place an earnest of better  things to come. The opening of a  branch of the Eastern Townships Bank  there last week and the resuscitation  of the defunct newspaper looks as if  the conviction is gaining that Midway  is entering not only the temporary activity which follows railway construction, but the. attainment of a. position  of permanent industrial importance  which belongs to all railway centres.  A Few Distances.  .MILKS  Spokane to Marcus  101  Marcus to Curlew  524  Curlew to Midway  It  Midway to Molson    31  Molson to Oroville  21  A writer in the Kamloops Standard  treats the government telephone   between Kamloops and Penticton to a  vigorous roast, to which' users of the  line Avill readily .say "hear,   hear."   It  was constructed during the ���������Dominion  election campaign, and is supported (?)  on beau poles, saplings, pine-knots or  anything else that came in the way,  and strung with galvanized clothes-line  that was labelled "made in Germany."  Iu March last Mayor Stevens of Kamloops, who has the supervision of the  line was in Hedley and  promised an  exchange here in a few Aveeks.    The  weeks have lengthened into months,  and the latest heard from Mr. Stevens  is that he has assured the Princeton-  ites that the whole line would be. overhauled.    He didn't want to send out  two gangs, as it might cost "several  hundred dollars more."    This  means  that the one gang   started   out from  Kamloops will not get to Hedley to  put in the exchange until the line from  Kamloops has been overhauled. |  The C. P. R.'s comedy of errors goc.-  bravely on, and the latest developments place them in a more helplessly'  ridiculous light than ever.  In spite of the loud, long wails sent  up by tlie C.R. R. and their supporters  from'the railway committee at Ottawa  that Hill's road could and would go  nowhere else than down the Skagit to  Everett or Seattle, and that Canadian  trade would suffer thereby, it would  now appear that Hill and his engineers  were ignorant of this charge. In fact-  they say they are not aware of any  route that will permit them to make  their way from the Similkaineen into  the Skagit, and when the chief engineer of the V. V. Ac E. wired from Ottawa to St. Paul for information con-,  corning this imaginary pass he was  informed that they knew nothing- of it-  in St. Paul, although Engineer Tyo, of  the C. P. R., was sure that there was  such a pass.  Now however the G reat Northern  engineers have taken the C. P. R. at  their word that the Coast-K'ootenay  road should keep all the way on Canadian soil between the Similkaineen  and the Coast, and after a recounais-  ance by A. E. Baldwin, their surveyors  are at work running a line via the  Coldwatcr-Coquihalla route which is  claimed by men who know that country, that it is not only a feasible hut a  most desirable route, and will beat the  C.P.R.'s route via Spence's Bridge by  100 miles or thereabouts.  By going," from Princeton, up the  Tulameen and the west fork of the  Otter a pass is entered which is the  watershed between the Coldwatei-  which runs northward into the Nicola  river and the Cocmihalla which runs  southward into the Fraser. And this  is a route over which there are no C.  P. R. stakes and no plans fyled.  A notable feature of the situation,  too, is that it vindicates the attitude  of the opposition who supported the  C.P.R.'s contentions. Mr. Foster and  those of his associates who took a hand  in the fight with him, resent with very  great warmth the. imputation that they  were advocating " either a closed door  or a perpetual monopolv," and that all  they wished was to safeguard Canadian interests by ensuring the completion of the road on this side of  the.  bolder.  Mr.   Gamble's  Visit.  IS THE FINEST FLOUR MADE.  You can always depend  on it.    Use no other.  : for sale by:  W. T. SHflTFORD & 60.  tiedleu and Falrview  The sports committee have, made  their rounds and have succeeded iu  collecting $1000 from townspeople for  prizes on Labor Day. They have  heard that some outsiders were afraid  of being bled for hospital money and  they ask the Gazette to announce to  the public, all and sundry, that anyone who is swift enough to win a prize  will get the money in his fist to do  with as he may see fit.  Mr. Sliatford regretted   exceedingly  that his illness should have prevented  him making the tour through the -riding with Mr Gamble to point out  the  needs of the district and vindicate  the  position which he took in the house in  urging the Government for sufficient-  appropriation to make the roads  safe  for public travel.    Mr.   Sliatford   had  Mr. Gamble visit Rock Creek  where a  new bridge is  imperative.    The  creek  and roadway at Hedley were inspected  where a new   bridge,   is   required and  will be built, and the roadway leading  out of Hedley to the east put in shape.  The sum of $1500 will be; spent in  the  creek this year,   although  to make a  proper permanent job a much larger  sunt would be required.    As retrenchment is the watchword   at    Victoria,  the amounts secured for the Similkaineen  by Mr. Sliatford have been  regarded with jealous eyes by representatives of other ridings who have not  been     nearly    sO    fortunate.    These  ���������amounts   authorized   by   Mr Gamble  will not come out of the Similkaineen  appropriation, but out of the   general  bridge, fund.  Some two years ago there was gazetted for Hedley a ������������������resident'' constable,  but- during the period that he has held  the office  the  residence   lias been   so  itinerant in jits  character that people  in  Hedley    are    beginning   to  doubt  whether    "resident"    anil   "absentee"  are not interehangablc terms.    Counting Mr. Brown who possibly  does not  do as much constabulary work now as  he did before his appointment  as  Assessor and Collector,   there  are  three  constables in  the  Okanagan  and yet  the   resident   constable   for   Hedley  seems to   be eternally doing duty at  Fairview.    If it    was    intended    that  Hedley  should  have  a  resident, constable, then he should  be resident not-  only  in  name,  but    in  fact.    Drunks  who are testing their lung power  on  the sidewalks  in  Hedley  on  Sunday  nights  certainly  require  a  constable  nearer than Fairview.  McLean Bros, are the most ubiquitous cusses doing railway stunts in B.  C. Last week they were said to have  seized a pass in the Hope mountains,  and were fortifying it. A few days  later they bob upserenely in the boundary hiring fellows to build the Mid--  wav and Vernon. THE "HEDLEY GAZETTE, AUGUST 3, 1005.

Unfortunately too the town has had  more than its rightful  share of  people  ie who  vavai  in   .strife  and  who endeavor to fan the flames  at a. time when loyalty to the  town and its interests should  prompt a more pacific course.  The Gazette holds no brief and  therefore will take no role of  special'pleader for anybody, but  our interests in the town are  such that any tiling which effects  its advancement is sufficient  ' reason for speaking.  it was for a considerable time  a debatable question as to whether it would be more prudent  in the interests of the town to  discuss the matter or to let it-  rest, but now that outside newspapers arc- making references to  the situation in away that cannot fail to do injury to the town  it would seem that 'silence is 110  longer the better part. In view  of the amount of friction, which  had been engendered during the  progress of negotiations for obtaining   the   ground  from   the  w  Indian  rjenarriiient. it  ill  adv.  gers  the  MOV  tlu;  abr.  ci  si  so  I on  Vlil:-  ii'i'ounu  ."iio part (  juncture  as 00 ua:-  I'Ul  a I  'even  ij)ly  ��������� m ���������>  .���������. /. 1  ;l (C  I: Mr. Radio do with  done: but  been done and  ���������sion has gone  1 no St or is to be  the people have  ivoii tricked, it would  >'er for everybody that \  v ic uas  ���������   iiiij-re,  ha i v:o :���������  \}\ii 1 hat  ie  ���������f t-  be 1  hoi<  anv  !tr,i  iearc talk sliouia  ���������id. Yiie -ialette does not  -'���������lr. liodgers responsible, by  ��������� means. iY-raiJ the harm that  - i.-een da-no in the matter if  iii-considere-d action was the  rae cause. Had there been  less senseless clacking all summer on th^, j>art'of local mischief-  makers, some, of whom do not  own a foot of ground in the  town but who a re eternally button-holing strangers and filling  them up with the idea that a  smelter is no longer a possibility,  these exaggerated notions of  Medley's wrong would not have  got  abroad.  Right here the Gazette denies  the right or the logic of arriving  at the conclusion that simply  because some fifty acres of hind  have been plowed up, fruit trees  planted, alfalfa sown, and all  kinds of held   and garden veg-  get it for tlie Company from the  Indian Department. So far as  the fruit trees are concerned  they prove nothing, for. they  may even be a part/of the  smelter plan. It is known that  smelter concerns are constantly  harassed by actions for damages  to vegetation, and invariably  the defence set up has been that  tlie smelter smoke is not as injurious to vegetation as the  land-owners claimed. Wliat  i better evidence then to establish  i such a defence than the exis-  | tence of a few healthy fruit  trees.  Again tliere is reason to believe that the question of ore  treatment for the Nickel Plate  has not yet been fully solved.  Until it is, all arrangements for  permanent works must be held  in' abeyance.  So far as the tenure of the  land is concerned, there is nothing whatever to be alarmed  about, for the people's interests  will be found to have been duly  protected if occasion should  arise to -test the same. There is  in fact no country- under -the  sun where the people .are in .'a  better position to protect'them-'  selves from wrong than in Can-  ada, for, our laws were not. constructed after any Mede or  Persian model and what the  people can do' they can undo.  Men may come here from Greenwood, and after spending a  while with, clacking mischief-  makers, talk nonsense about not  wanting to "own property nor  live in a place where the water  is in the hands of a man who  would throw down the town,5'  and those who fill up these people and send them out to rant  about the town after this fashion are doing the town no good.  And neither is it doing the Com-;  pany tmy good to allow irres- i  ponsible babblers and hangers- j  ig-  off water or'discriminating iu  the employment of labor. The  water is supplied under-a charter and paid for by users, and as  such is not to be turned on or  oil' for the purpose of reprisal  for fancied slights.  The fact is that there is no  place in British Columbia where  there is a surer thing for our-  chasers of real estate than here  in Hedley; for, hemmed in as  we are by steep mountains and  Indian reservations, eveiy available foot of ground is included  in tlie present townsite of Hedley and no suburban additions  can be platted to make town  lots a. drag on the market. That  is one of the principal tilings  which has made real estate an  unprofitable investment in most  of towns through British Columbia, and Hod ley is and always has been the notable exception where real estate in-'  vestments haveyieided spleiided I  profits and will continue to do so. \  There is every reason why the i  town and tiie Company should!  endeavor to get along in liar-i  mony. for by doing so there is j  everything to he gained  nothing to be hist.

JOHN LOVE,  Druggist* (������_>  Stationer,  HEDLEY & FAIRVIEW  AS  OTHERS   SEE   US.  Some Views on the Similkameen.-  perties on Upper Keremeos:  -Pro-  - Alex.. Robinson was contributing a  write-up of the Similkameen for. the  Greenwood Times last week, in which  the Nickel Plate comes in for a good  deal of attention, both eulogistic and  censorious, with a few sentences that  were evidently intended to be personally offensive to the management.  Among the criticisms he condemns the  conveyance of the ore to Hedley, thinking that the stamp mill and other  works should have been located up at  the mine, where a lake 3 miles away  was to supply the water. Speaking  of either properties,  he says :  "Near the Nickel Plate, on the Twenty Mile creek slope, is tlie Kingston  group, which was bought for $6o,000,  and upon which development work is  now being carried on. On the Fairy  Queen group, recently bonded for a  large amount, and in which some  Greenwood men are heavily interested.  South of these are tlie groups owned  by J. J. Marks and Paul Broadhagen.  South again is the Oregon group, owned by Hedley men, which gives promise  of outdoing the Granby in size^ as much  as it deies in value.  "The pivotal point of interest of this  section, from a mining point of view  is Riordan mountain and the district  immediately adjacent thereto. Here  are situated some of the most promising claims in the entire Similkaineen  country, and it is here that almost  daily representatives of mining companies can be met with sampling the  ore that has been exposed by open  cuts, shafts and tunnels, with a view  of acquiring a bond on some of the  properties. - Last week a deal was consummated whereby two groups owned  by McKinnon Bros., of Hedley, McLean, of Keremeos, and other parties,  passed into the hands of a mining syndicate, and several other cleals are  pending/which, if satisfactorily concluded, will make this one of the busiest mining sections in the province.  The ore in most cases is similar to that  found in the big mines of the Boundary. The exceptions are the claims  owned by Webster on Fifteen Mile,  the Marks and Broadhagen properties  and the Nickel Plate and Sunnyside,  where the ore can be handled by  stamps and the tailings cyanided."  Of the chances for mining invost-  men t he says :  "There is one error regarding the  Similkaineen which can stand correction. It has been reported by irresponsible persons that no work has  been done in the country and that  prospectors hold their claims for impossible prices. Both these statements  are wrong. The latter especially is an  utter absurdity, for claims can be secured there on working bonds that in  any other country would command a  substantial cash payment. The claim  owners there realize that they have to  allow generous terms on bonds in  order to induce capital to take hold,  and in no camp in British Columbia  are there such liberal tterms given as  there are at the present time in the  Similkameen.  " Hedley itself is growing steadily,  stores and hotels are going up rapidly  and it bids fair to be the centre of the  Similkameen country. The advent of  the railroad is eagerly looked forward  to, and is all that is necessary to start  the various camps on the way to being  the greatest mininjg districtjn British  Columbia."
