In Advaxck  AT KEREMEOS  Magnificent.Inception Given Mr. Shatford by Electors  'of Riding at Splendid Event  "S*"  IG-H*iN -PL'ATI NU M  The- reception given Mr. L. ,W.  Shatford, M. P.-P.', for the Similkaineen riding, at thedveroineos Hotel,  Keremeos, by his constituents was an  indication eif the ' .popularity and  esteem in which he' is'held by his con-  stitutents. . ,  '.  The day was lmt :_��������� nice one, for it  rained most of the time, but that eliel  not seem to deter thiventhusi-isni a bit  and the event was attended hy representatives from every" part of the constituency, from Rock Creek lo Tulameen anel from Peiitieton to the International Boundary.  About one hundr-'ucll and twenty-five  guests sat down tp'partake of the  princely banquet which the-management of the KorenietVs hotel had pro-  pared. Owing to the large number of  guests present two '\ tables hud to be  set as it was impossible to. seat all at  one sitting in the dining room. After  the seconel table, however, all managed  to finel room to listen' to the toasts and  speeches. ;'  Daniel McCurdy, president of the  Keremeos vConservative Association,  was toast master anel the first toast  called was "Tlie Kh'ig." The toast  "Our.Country" was the next one given  and this was responded to by Mr. W.  A. Mac-Lean who maele an excellent  response which was greetcel with much  enthusiasm. Major' A. Megraw, Inspector of Indian Agencies, also made  an excellent response. The third  toast'being "Our- Guest" Mr. Shatford  arose amid louel applause'to respond.  Mr. Shatford after thanking every  hotly for the honor bestowed upon  him said it was one ' of the proudest  moments in his life to he'present at  this gathering, saying he felt unworthy -of tlK! honov bestowed--upon:  him. "Gentlemen," he saiel, "I appreciate it, I appreciate the confidence  you have had in me and a-m.proud to  say that many things I have worked'  for and am working for have been fulfilled and others coining to pass anel  am proud to know that my efforts are  appreciated." He maele special mention 'son.  e-overnment for this riding for the  continuation of a "good roads"-policy,  anel the expenditure of which hael been  fully jusbifioel and judiciously spent in  the performance of the road work.  Referring to Premier McBriele he said  that, the papers had stated that he had  been slated for the High Commissioner of Canada, and if this came to puss  and- he assumes his duties as such,  bhab this province and the Dominion  would fine! that he would fill the- position with credit to the country. Long  and hearty applause greeted the guest  of the evening nt the conclusion of his  speech.  The Mining toast w.-is responded to  by W. C. McDongall, T. H. Murphy  and G. P.' Jones. The toasf'The Press"  was responded to by J. H. Wiight,  and the. toast to the Ladies by the  banquet in general.  We wish to adel here that the confidence in which this riding helel Mr.  Shatford has been reciprocated by  him in many ways. As soon as the  question of the alteration of the route  of the K. V. railway was made known  to the public Mr. Shatford threw himself wholeheartedly into the work  with the result that the line will be  run through Prinreton and the west  portion of the riding.

C  TllK  I'RKSIDKNTS   A DDK EMS  Following  the financial   reports,   I  wish to make a few general statements  relative to the affairs'of the Company.  Financial  affairs  during  the year, as  you all are well aware, have been anything but satisfactory.   Your directors  have had  to give   consielerable   time  and labor to the financing of the Company's affairs.   Collections from bonds  and stock subscriptions   have failed to  meet  the expenditures as  they shoulel  have done, if all past due accounts had  been  paid.    Other  means of securing  funds have been used in order to bring  about the completion of the plant and  put it on an operating basis.  The Treasurer's report shows that  $73,075.00 have been collected eluriiig  the year from subscriptions to bonds  and stock. There still remains unpaid,  about $55,000.00, nearly all of which is  past elue anel will be difficult to collect,  because of the tightness of the money  market. The. United Empire Com-  Coiitinucrt on Pafre Two  of the  thorough   way  the  committee  had handleel the evening and he highly complimenteel    Mrs. Kirov* on  the  sumptuous spread   which hael been set  before the guests.   Taking up the conditions of the riding he was pleased to  see  the progress and   the   wonderful  developments  in the  agricultural and  mineral pursuits which had been made  and   the still greater possibilities   eif  further developments  in these fields.  He  said that wonderful progress was  being made in the development of the  several properties from the AVest Fork  of Kettle Kiver on the east to Summit j  Camp on the  west and said it would  not   be   long  before   many   of   these  woulel  lie   put on  a.  sound   shipping  basis.     He also said that with the ael-  vent of the K. V. and   V. V. & E. railways connecting  up with Vancouver  anel  the coast cities they would open  up greater-  markets for our products.  He spoke of the vast  timber resources  of  the province  anel the large industries   which   were   made   from    that  source.

Half of Grading on Joint Section  Complete���������Track-laying on Hill Line  Will Be Commenced in  August  Vancouver, B. C, April. 23.���������More  than half of the grading work on: the  joint section of the Hope mountain  route has been completed anel with the  exception of a three-mile stretch grading work is now proceeding on the  entire section of the Kettle Valley railway between Hope and Coquahalla  summit.  There are now 1,800 men spread  along this line and tho number is being still further augmented.  The section in 3S miles in length and  and was only started late last summer.  Operations have been prosecuteel with  the outmost vigor all through the winter in the face of the, most elifficult  physical handicaps.  Grading gangs are working on the  last link of the Kettle Valley railway,  ���������which will afford connections with the  Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern at  Princeton and nearly two-thirds of the  grading has been completed on the  27-mile section of the latter line between Princeton and Otter Summit.  About 200 men are working on the  Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern northwest of Princeton and it is expected  thab grading will bo completed and  track-laying started by the mieldle of  August. The section probably'will be  ready for traffic late this autumn.  Benefits Local People  Hedley people have discovered that  A SINGLE DOSE of simple buckthorn  bark, glycerine, etc., as compouneleel in  Aeller-i-ka, the German appendicitis  remedy, removes gas on the stomach  and constipation AT ONCE. F. M.  Gillespie, druggist.  Consielerable attention is now being  paiel to the-alluvial deposits 'of the  Similkameen and Tulamee-n rivers in  southern Briti.-h Columbia, owing to  the fact that the Tulameen district  has the richest platinum deposits on  the North American continent, anil  partly in view of the high price which  platinum has attained and the scarcity  of the metal.  The rise of the'price of the metal is  probably elue to its extended uses iu  the; setting of precious jewels, for  which purpose it is better adapteel  than golel. In addition to its value  for jewelry, platinum is in such ele-  mand in the arts, as for electric,  chemical and scientific apparatus anel  other uses, that scientific men say ib  must be found, as there is nothing  else known to lake its place.  That platinum exists in economic  quantity in British*-CoIiiinb"a placers  is evident fiom bhe leturns officially  recorded. The (jeole)gical survey gives  the* production from the year 1887 up  to 1902 at a total value of $44,972. The  records available are, however, very  imperfect. In those days, too, noboely  paid any attention to platinum, re- ,  garding it as worthless and the prices  ranged from 50c to $3.50 per ox.  The Similkameen country has for  years been known as a. rich mineral  elistrict and the Tulameen river is its  main west fork.  While the Similkaineen river was  found .rich only in spots, the early  place*r miners in the sixties got richer  and larger returns from the Tulameen. The largest golel nugget found  eluriug the Granite creek excitement  was reported to he- worth- about $350,  while .sevcralaiuggets;,,ranging.inrv_ihier\--  froin $80,to $150 were picked up from  tilh heels of the Tulameen river and  its tributaries. Several conflicting re--  ports are made 'on: the'-estimated-'output of gold from the 'Granite creek  arid Tulameen diggings during and  long after the rush of miners from  the California goldfields to the Tula-,  liieen.  They evidently all made good and  spenb their golel dust as fast as they*  niaele their daily clean-ups. This has:  been corroborated by the. few old  timers who returned to this district at  the close of the Cariboo excitement,  which was the direct cause of the  general exoelus of miners from the  Tulameen and Rock creek into the.  far north.  The   Similkaineen    and   Tulameen  rivers   have    been    for  many   years  famous for the  remarkable    quantity  of   black    sands .contained    in   -the  gravels, which,   all more  or  less eon-  tain  gold  and -platinum.    C. F. Law,  who  knows  the   district,    places  the  production'  of    platinum   from    the-  Tulameen and its   tributaries at 20,000  o/.s.   The    black    platiniferous sands  held    in   the  riffles and sluice  boxes  were regarded as nf  no value in those  days and  were thrown away.    For instance,  according  to  the Mineral   Industry, platinum   was  selling  in Russia in   1S98 at $7.75  to  $S.75  pe- oz.  Today it is quoted in New   York  at  $45.50 for  refined   metal and  $4S per  oz.   for  hard   metal.    This represents  an average increase   in   price  of over  50  per cent,   per annum,  or 000 percent,    in    10   years.    The   Tulameen  platinums are classed  as hard metals.  Hugh Hunter, tliegolcl commissioner  at   Princeton,    has    some   very  nice  specimens of  platinum   nuggets,  also  the British  Columbia Platinum  company  of Vancouver, which  has been  operating on  some  of  the leases for  a number of years.  0. IS. Lee of Seattle is at present  examining the placer leases held by  Messrs. Coulthard <fc Snowelen Bros.  of Princeton. This mining company is  employing men on these diggings and  will make a thorough test of the  ground for gold and platinum on (ho  Roancy leases. C. Lambert is preparing to work his ground on Granite  creek. He has several nice specimens  of gold he recently took out.  When   writing Advertisers    Please  Mention the Gazette.

The story of financial stability of trade  expansion, and of the splendiel manner  in which the Dominion of Canada  passed through a year of world wide  financial sti ingency was gratifying to  the people of Canada and a. lasting  credit to the Borden guvernment.  Despite the financial depression of  the past year, Hon. Mr. AVhite was  able to present, in his speech, astate-  lnent which shows that the position  of the Dominion was never better, anel  that the present finance minister has  ably and skilfully- brought the ship of  state safely through a perioel of commercial difficulty. The revenue fertile year was $103,000,000 anel the expenditure $120,500,000, leaving a surplus of revenue over and above the  amount required for.expenditure upon  current account of no less than $36,-  500,000.  There are a. number of important  features in the finance minister's pronouncement which are of special interest. There is the announcement  that the revenues have been and will  be in the coining year sufficient to  meet all expenditures.  ANNUAL REPORT  Continued from Page One  pany liave been unable to pay us their  share of the cost of the. railway spur  . and bridge, amounting to approximately $35,000.00; we hold their note  for $30,000.00 of this amount. Failure  to receive moneys from these and  oilier accounts elue us has maele it  impossible to pay balances elue on machinery anel suppliesand furnish working capital to operate the plant. To  meet pressing needs, adelitional bank  aelvances were secured, notes were  . given to creelitors, anel in some instances our bonds have been eleposited  to furnish adelitional security.  At a regularly calleel meeting of the  bondholders, held on December 20th,  the financial condition of the Company  was placed before them by the elirec-  tors. After a thorough anel careful  consideration of the Company's needs,  the bondholders gave their unanimous  consent to the plan of allowing the  Company to obtain additional funds  by way of a loan or otherwise, an  amount not to exceed $150,000.00 in  addition to sums already borrowed,  by way of mortgage bonds and to secure the same by giving trust deed or  mortgage to rank in priority to the  trust deed or mortgage, securing the  present issue of bonds. At a meeting  of the shoreholelers helel subsequently,  the required by-law was passeel authorizing the directors to secure the  new loan upon the most favorable  terms and conditions that they could  obtain in order to pay off current  liabilities and supply working capital.  The directors have accordingly decided to issue a series of preference  bonds having a  prior  claim on  the  assets of the Company, considering  that this wo-.ilel be the best and surest  way of interesting investors under-  present financial conditions. AVe trust  that the present bondholders and  shareholders will take advantage of  the opportunity that will be given to  subscribe for- this preference issue and  thus give the Company the immediate  financial aid that is necessary. As soon  as funds are received from this source,  present floating inelebleelness can be  wi|)ed out and working capital will  then be available.  I take pleasure in slating that the  plant is now completed and that the  quality of our product is first class,  being equal to any cement in B. -C.  Construction woik on the: plant was  not hurrieil faster than the, receipts of  our funds would allow, coi-fcqiiently  experimental manufacturing was not  started until about the Sth of July.  After a short run. it was found thab a  number of minor changes had to be  maele in speeds of pulleys and in convoying- anel' elevating machinery, in  'order to get the desired results. In  August tlie plant had to be ������hut down,  when it was discovered that the brick  used in the boiler settings were giving  way and allowing the boilers to settle.  It was fo'uiid. thal-lhe brick used was  of inferior quality. On the advice of  our Superintendent and Chief Engin-  eei, after they had consulted the Boiler Inspector,- it was decidetl to rebuild  the entire brick settings, under the  ���������boilers' and at the same, time to finish  all other alterations anil repairs that  were found necessary in the machinery  I thiouglmiit- the plant.  Dining thefiist trial run, the United  Enipiie Company were unable ta furnish us with more than about one-  quarter of our coal requirements, anel  we hael to purchase our fuel from  another mine, at a much higher price  than our contract with the United  Empire Company called for. The manager of the United Empire Company  bad been given due notice of our requirements, but on account of having  insufficient development work done,  they could not get out the necessary  tonnage. AVe were informed that sufficient work woulel be done on "the  coal tunnels dining the time we woulel  be closed to give us full coal capacity  on starting our operations again.  Although our plant was closeel down  until October, yet they were unable  even at this time to furnish all the  coal required'. This company has been  doing considerable work on their mine,  anel we now hop? to get all the coal  needed as soon as we stait continuous  operations.  The plant was again started up in  October, but as stated above, the coal  situation brought a stop to our operations until about December the first  when a large quantity of coal had  been accumulated. The machinery now  seems to be in gooel working, order,  except the preliminary grinders, known  as the Emerick Ball Pulverizers, with  the attached air separators. AVe found  thab bhe greatest trouble occurred at  the finishing end, where the cement  clinker was somewhat hard, ariel these  machines .proved to have frequent  break-downs, anel much time was lost  in making repairs and replacing broken parts, besides not being able to secure much more than half the quantity  that bhey are . supposed to produce.  Since these machines were represented to produce a definite capacity, use  a certain amount of horsepower, and  that repairs woulel be small, both by  the manufacturers and by Mr', W. J.  Budd, who selected the machines, we  have refused to settle for them. About  the 10th of December the quantity of  coal supplied by the United Empire  Company was insufficient to keep our  plant operating, and as coal purchased  from another mine in tho vicinity  made the cost of production high, and  as we hael insufficient capital to continue operations, it was thought best  to close down for the present, especially as at this season of the year the  demand for cement is small. The coal  company in the meantime are going  ahead with further development work  and state that they will make every  effort to supply sufficient coal to meet  our requirements.

On Saturday evening  the town was  plunged   into   darkness owing   to  a  break in the Hume eauseel by a rock  coaming down  and punching a hole in  the   bottom  of  it.    Before the  water  could be turneil oil' it had washed the  foundation  anel   flume  out for a   dis  tance of  nearly  eighty feet.    This   is  not the largest break that has  oe'eur-  od, but it is one of the most disaster  nils'.    The   water    rushetl   down   the  mountain  side and down in front of  the hospital  and into some  of the cellars on   the   east side   of the creek.  Work was started  immediately to repair  the  break and   the  water    was  again   turned into   the  flume  on   Fri  day.  ���������    BASEBALL MATCH*  EXT  Princeton   Visits   Hedleys   and   Defeats  Local Team by a Score of 15 to 9  On Sunday afternoon a match game  of baseball was played between Princeton and Pleelley. The Princeton team  drove elown on Sunday morning anel  were given some time to limber up before the game was called. Heelley  was shy of three of the regular, players 'and were somewhat handicapped  by the loss of their pitcher who  was sick and unable to play.  Princeton went first to bat anel managed to get a couple of runs in their  half of the innings while Hedley se-  011 red four. In the next innings neither Princeton or Heelley were able to  score. After that it was all Princeton  all the way through although in the  sixth innings' the local team tigain  made a desperate rally and succeeded  in getting five runs anel tying up the  score.  The game was very loosely played  by both sieles and the errors were  many, but as this was the first game  of the season and the teams have not  hael much practice there was pome  excuse. A return game will likely be  played in Princeton this coming Sunday.  Hedley has a bunch of gooel looking  recruits who should get out and get  a little more practice and they are  likely a secure a position em the regulars.  Shorty Wagner umpired the game  to the satisfaction eif both te*ams.

This development will have to continue for  some time to make possible*, the safest  and most economical working conditions. As the limestone constitutes  about fotir-lifths of the raw {material  that enters into the inaiiufact  Portland Cement, it is our intention to  place the quarry in such condition that  we can get all the rock, required at  the minimum of cost.  We have been shipping our product  to Vancouver and many  points in the  Boundary country,    such  as Nelson,  Trail,   Greenwood   and other   points,  where it is being used iu both Government and private work.    Wo are now  in hopes that with  the completion  of  the  Kettle    Valley    Railway  to   our  yyorks, we will  .soon lie able to outer  the Okanagan and Fraser .River districts.    Since the la rill' on cement  has  been removed on cement expor-te-el  to  the United  States,   wo can now ship  to many points   in   Washington  over  the newly completed line of the Great  . Northern  Railway,   which    has  been  built from Oroville to Wenatchee, and  we   can    compete   successfully   with  plants located in the State of Washington.   With tho completion of the Great  Northern and Kettle Valley Railways  to the coast, wo will also be able to receive  greater   profits  on   cement sold  on   the  coast.    The  average  price at  the mill has run   about $2.00 per  barrel and we would be able to more than  maintain    this     average    in  , selling  to most of the markets in our territory.  The demand for cement for the coming season is good, and   there  will  be  large  Government and   railway  contracts to fill,   as   well  as  considerable  cement that will be used in Vancouver  This community was greiviously  shocked Thursday morning upon  learning of the suicitle of Miss Ruth  Strong, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.  A. Strong, which occured at Chesaw  some time during Wednesday, anel  news of which was conveyed by te.le-  phone to the father anil brother at  this place  Wedneselay evening.  This case is one of the saddest of  record in this  county.   About a year-  ago Miss  Strong  was engaged  to  be  married   to Elmer Gassert,   a   worthy  young man  living near Chesaw,  anel  the wedeling was soon  to take  place.  Mr. Gassert was taken ill, and physicians pronounced   his   ailment incurable.    His sickness, and the  trial that  his condition was to his mother, preyed upon the young man's mind anel in  a moment of   mental aberration   he  took his own life.   The tragic death of  her betrothed was a blow  from which  Miss  Strong    never   recovered.    She  could not be  consoled.   Time  elid not  alleviate her sorrow  and nothing that  the  family could  do  coulel  turn  her  mind from her loss.    She  made several visits to the grave from Republic,  where she  has   been   living  with  her  mother for the past   three years.    She  had   evidently   been    contemplating  self-destruction,  for  the  act  was deliberately  planned.    Tuesday evening  she  airived  at Chesaw  on   the  west  bound train from Republic.    "Wednesday she secured a vehicle at Chesaw  and drove to the cemetery alone.    Not  returning toward evening an acquaintance went tothe cemetery and found  the  unfortunate girl  dead  upon   the  grave of her lover.    Death was due to  poison.  The   deceased was  well  known   in  Oroville,  where   she  lived   with  her  parents for some two years.    She was  a sweet, winsome young girl, developing into a capable and char-ruing young  women, beloved by all who knew her.  Her shocking and   untimely death  is  deplored by a large  circle  of friends,  and the sympathy of  the community  goes out to   the striken   family.    The  deceased    was    only    some    eighteen  years of age,   and  was  born in   Alex-  "u:i1'1,11, j andra, Minn., coining to Oroville with  'I'0  "     her family some live years ago.���������Oroville Gazette.
