SttflTFORD & 60.  ileclleu and Fairview  One thing on which Canadians always prided themselves was the absence of the spoils system in connection  with the Canadian civil service, but a  Hide shock was experienced in the  manner in which the axe fell after the  Laurier administration attained power  in 1890, notwithstanding the fact that  post-office appointees who Mere given  their positions during the MacKc.nzie  regime wore left unmolested during  the 18 years of Conservative administration..  This portion of- Yale-Cariboo, however,.-" was splu-cd the more flagrant  violations of decency in this respect,  but it would look as if any Conservative postmasters who have, survived  this far (if theie.be j>ny) may as well  make up their minds to the fact that  they will have to walk the plunk; and  if no decent excuse for their removal  should exist, one can be'manufactured.  It is twcnlv years since Alfred Wade  took charge of the post office at' Penticton as deputy postmaster for'Thos.  Ellis, who received the appointment  under Sir John Macdonald's administration, and since about 1895 he has  been postmaster. During the time he  has managed the office, the highest  efficiency and strictest integrity has  been shown, and post office inspectors  one and all testified to his fitness for  the office.  During the past six months a change  has taken  place  in Penticton  which  made advisable a change, in the location of the post office.   A new. town-  site has been laid out and on it all  the  new business houses that have opened  and areopening up are located,   while  many of, those in the old town are preparing to follow,  and Mr. Wade with  his general store and post office among  them.    In fact there was no option on  ���������his-part, for among the changes when  the old townsite was taken over by the  Southern Okanagan Land Co. was the  purchfise by Stewart & Mathias of tlie  old store and post office building which  they wanted to use as an annex to the  Hotel  Penticton to provide room for  their guests.    On purchasing this they  ordered Mr. Wade to vacate the premises.    Knowing that he-could not do  so without permission, he at once notified his superior officer, the post office  inspector for the district, John Greenfield, to whom he explained the whole  situation.    Mr. Greenfield approved of  the change and recommended  to  the  Department that it be made, but meanwhile a few party heelers,   mostly on  the outside, decided to interfere in the  matter, and at outre  they   gained   flit-  ear of Duncan Ross, M. P.    A petition  circulated among all those who receive  11iit.il at the Penticton   post   office   was i  signed by 115 out of a total of 12").   for  (hi' removal of the  office  and   the  retention   of  Mr. Wade as  postmaster.  This was 110 doubt a difficult thing to  get around,   but as  the  party  heelers  lad Mr. Hnss' ear,   what tlid   he  care  for tilt? wishes of the people concerned':1  When Mr. 'Rossstates that the Department had not been informed, he states  what is not true, for correspondence as  far back as April proves that the   Department were  duly  informed.     But  Mr. Wade had to go and a quibble had  tt> be resorted to in order to obtain an  excuse.     That quibble was  that  the  necessary authority from the   Department had not been obtained when the  officii  was  finally moved.    So far as  the moving was concerned   Mr. Wade  could not  help   himself,   for he  was  forced out by the new owners of the  building,  who compelled him to move  his goods,   and immediately put workmen on the premises.    For two boats  after his goods were removed lit-  held  the post office in the old building wait-  for the Inspector to come, to move the  office, and had  to spread mail sacks  over his desk to protect his books and  papers from being destroyed  by the  dirt and debris made by the workmen  -Whether Mr. Ross had anything1 to do  with holding the Inspector back,' and  thus compelling Mr. Wade ��������� to leave  'the building without this' authority,  Mr. Ross knows best: at all events  there lire many of Mr." Wade's friends  who do believe this, and the indignation which" it" has caused will not  benefit Mr. Ross.  Mark the difference in Mr. Ross' at-  titude to Mr.-Wade find his action in  the House in helping to vote down a  motion to dismiss two other postmaster s who had ,been proven guilty. of  offences that would have put them behind prison bars hut for the fact that  they were Grit partisans and had a  pull at Ottawa.  The office has been located in J.'A.  Schubert's store. The public have no  objection to Mi-. Schubert having the  office, but what they do object to is  having outside party heelers, some of  whom are located over 100 miles' from  Penticton, interfering in matters  that do not concern them, and overriding the wishes of residents who are  concerned.  THE MIDWAY Sc VERNON  WORK STARTED AT MIDWAY ON  McLEAN BROS.' CONTRACT.  Line Goes North of C. P. R.���������No Com-  1 plete Survey Has Yet Been Made.  VISCOUNT WITH GUARDS  Distinguished   Irishman   Will   be at the  Dominion Fair in New Westminster.  The officer who will be in charge of  H. M. Irish' Guards band on their  forthcoming visit to the Dominion fair  at New Westminster will be Lieut.  Viscount de Vesci. The V.iscount de  Vesci descends from the great baronja,!  family of De Vesci, which was in historic eminence in the time of the early  kings, and had summons to parliament I  as Barons de Vesci in 120L The firs,t  baronet was Sir Thomas Vesey, -who  was created a baronet of Ireland, September 28, 1098, but subsequently tak?  ing holy orders was consecrated bishop  of Killalpe .iii 1711... Lieut,, Viscount,  de Vesci is the second son, although  heir presumptive; of Sir John; Robert  William.Vesey, who was lieutenant  colonel of the Coldstream Guards, 'arid  of the Honorable Artillery company.of  London. The Vesey family have, for a  century and.a half occupied important  commands in Britain's army and navy.  Work began last week at Midway  on McLean Bros'.'contract for the Midway and Vernon, which it appears i.-.  being built by the1 New Yorkers independent of either the 'C. P. R, or the  G. N. R., except it is believed there is  a traffic arrangement with' the latter  for an outlet at the Midway end by the  Great Northern system. At all events  the G'.-P. R. is fighting them on light  of way and will not allow them to  either cross their surveyed line or approach too near on either side, and  hence there is expected to be a cat and  dog.'time of it between the C.P.R. and  the M. & V. which will pio'bably give  the Railway Commission something- to  do before both are accommodated with  a route between Midway and Rock  Creek. *  In'this mix-up the V.V. & E, are not  interested as their route is on the south  bank of the river to tlie mouth of  Myers creek and there they leave the  Kettle River valley to ithe two other  contestants to squabble over1 to their  hearts' content. ' '    ,'.'  ���������The crucial point is the narrow'pinch  in at Jackson's ranch, but the difficulty  is not insurmountable and tlie Railway  Commission will doubtless  fhid   room '  for both."

Unique Banquet Invitation and Menu.  The Gazette received an  invitation  to the complimentary banquet tendered to Duncan Ross, M.P., at the Imperial Hotel,  Greenwood,   by the citizens  of that town on August 1st.   Although  the event was over before  the invitation   arrived nevertheless  it was appreciated, for it was pleasing  to  be  remembered by Boundary friends, and  the  invitation itself as a   specimen of  the printer's art is well worth keeping.  In it we can detect something of  the  hold initiative and eternal  fitness of  the job to the subject which characterized  the   typographical   work  of our  friend Dr. Mathison,  and will bet dollars to doughnuts that  he   bad a big  hand in the designing and setting up.  The job takes the form  of  a  monster  .shipping tag,  printed on   genuine  tag  nianilla and the eyelet tied with rough  jute twine.    The  address   side  of   the  tag is used for the invitation,   printed  in red, anil the shipping lag idea maintained faithfully throughout.  It reads,  "via the V. V. & K., Competitive Railway, Southern British Columbia," and  below the address is " Compliuicntary  Banquet Tendered Duncan Ross, M.P.,  by the.  Citizens  of the   Boundary at  Imperial    Hotel,    Greenwood,    B, C,  August 1st, 1905."   On the reverse side  is the menu list,  tm which it is shown  that the Imperial hotel is maintaining  its reputation for good fare.  The excessive heat thinned out the  force of.men working on  the railway  between   Oroville and  the boundary'  line.    To make matters worse the absence, of ice   prevents  keeping meat  long enough to season.    Animals were  killed in the nightand fqd to the men  next day when the animal heat was  stiff in.it," with the result that dysentery wa-s'epideriue among them.     Satisfactory progress will not be made  until after the harvest.    Then two  or  three weeks more must be allowed  to  give the harvester time to  blow in his  pile and get sufficiently broke to go to  worlc again.    Under the circumstances  the contractors may .find  it desirable  to have the saloon-keepers double the  price of drinks and import plenty of  tinhorns to aid in the work,    if these  men have to be  skinned  before  they  will go to work again, it will he  more  humane   and   easier on   the  physical  constitutions to do the thing up quick.  We are all very impatient for the railway, and 'Machiavellian   ideas  of expediency will  obtrude  themselves  to  make everything  shape  towards  the  desired end.  C. Ai. Shaw P. L. S., stayed over in  Hedlev on Monday night on his  way  through to Voigt's camp.    Mr.   Shaw  has pretty  fairly recovered   from  his  injuries in the runaway of  last May  but still has a. stiff ankle which may  give him trouble for some time. When  he had recovered sufficiently  to start  over here, he ran   up   against   a subpoena to attend the  Providence mining case, in Nelson, and on   his return  from there had to do some engineering  work for  the    Midway   and   Vernon  Railway, where he   started   the.   McLean Bros, to work on their contract,  by running out and cross-sectioning a  few miles of line   for them  between  Midway and Rock Creek.  The   Sports    Committee   for    Labor  Day report the probability of arranging a good baseball game for an attraction.    Oroville is said to be ambitious,  and Molson, Night hawk,   Luoiuis and  Coneonully think they can play some.  Among them they ought  to get  up a  team to give Medley a game. Remember there aren't any  quitters  or cold  feet among Sunilkanicen   baseballers.  The visitors' credentials   won't   be  inquired after, and any cut of whiskers  will be allowed.    In fact we don't care,  if it   should   be.   Hedley   against   the  United States,  Cuba,   the  Phillipines  and the Great Northern,���������anything at  all so long as it can   put   up   a   good  game.  There is a mistaken idea-abroad that  the open season for duck  and  grouse  begins on August 15th.    It is unlawful to kill these birds any time in  August, the open   season  beginning on.  September 1st.    August,    under    the  Game Act is not a divided  month  for  anything.    September and December  are the only divided  months.    North  of the 55th   parallel   of  latitude   the  open season   for  ducks,    grouse  and  ptarmigan begins on  September I6th;  and for deer,  mountain' goat,  mountain sheep (rain) the season closes December 15th. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE. AUGUST 10, 1905.  iXbc Mey Oazette  ��������� ''and   .'  Similkameen Advertiser.  Issued on Thursdays, by tlio Hkoi.KV GazK'i-i  PltlNTI.VO AND Priil.lSlIIXO CoMl'ANY.  Li.mitf.h,  nt Hedley. B. C.  Subscriptions in Advance  Per Year.   ���������Six Mouths..'   A   MEGRAW,  Managing Editor.  ?2.oo  1.00  The movement set on foot by  J. J. Marks for a wagon road up  Twenty-mile creek brings out an  idea, that the people' of Hedley  will do well  to keep in  view.  When Robt. Wood set out about  eleven years ago to make a town  out of the unpromising lay-out  which then constituted what is  . known as Greenwood,  his plan  was a. system of road-building  which was  designed  to  centre  the trade of the  various camps  at Greenwood. To do this money  Avas required, and so great was  .'his faith  in the future  of the  town that he did not hesitate to  put   his   own  money  into the  building of these roads, and also  that of his friends.    The result  justified the course,  for  before  the  railway came 'Greenwood  had   become a centre for, the  camps on  Boundary creek and  the   mountains adjoining,   and  the lead thus  obtained by the  town became more marked when  the   railway  came.     In  latter  years when it has been demonstrated'that'Greenwood's, high  grade properties' were  going to  play a prominent part-in maintain nig  the  town's  prosperity,  this system of wagon roads built  long before there was any smelter or  railway was found to be  a  godsend,   for  when   the big  properties upon which the town  had learned to depend were shut  down by strikes,and things were  in a'-'ba'd 'way  generally,  shipments of ore began from the  small high'grade veins and kept  hope alive.    It would have been  fatal to many business men in  Greenwood to have been compelled to  depend Wholly  upon  the big low grade concerns, that  could only be operated  by the  railway;    and    neither should  Hedley try to get along by depending   wholly upon  railway  connection and  a   tramway to  certain mines.   There are several   properties   now  that are  known to have ore of sufficiently  high grade to be drawn by wagon  to    Hedley,  and    doubtless  others will be found as further  development proceeds.    Now is  the time to make a vigorous effort for wagon roads to all  the  best known camps in the adjoining hills.     A trunk road up the  Twenty-mile to the Golden Zone  will   make   a  very good  commencement.  other in contributingtoits funds,  while the private donations each  year for its maintenance are  very large. .Under these circumstances one would think that the  member for South York chose  wisely a. use to which his extra  thousand dollars indemnity may  be put when his love of consistency forbade him accepting it  for himself. But the reverend  scribe who edits the Toronto  Globe .made it the, subject for  acrimonious comment and uncharitable sneers. Billy McLean  whose hatred of humbug is too  often mistaken for lack of reverence, has more genuine charity  and love for fellow-man in his  heart than a hundred vinegar-  faced puritanical apologists for  party vice, like Rev. McDonald.  It was good old John Milton  who said in his day that " new  presbyter is. but'old-priest' writ  large," and the present editor of  the Globe would justify it for  the present day.

Rpdgers returned on Thursday last from a trip to Ashcroft.  E. A. C. Stndd left last week for a  month's visit to the Const.  W. A. McLean was under the weather for a day or two during the hot  spell.'  Jacky Tyrell is driving the Penticton stage.  F. M. Gillespie, postmaster, went to  Penticton last week, returning on Saturday evening's stage.  Swimming in the Siinilkanieen is a  favorite afternoon diversion during  the hot spell.  A waterspout east of Oroville  was  .responsible for three hours delay to  the Flyer on one of its trips last week.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., left early  yestercUiv a morning for Fairview and  Penticton. It is a good long trip in the  <lust and heat after his recent illness.  Mr. Crawford, auditor for the Daly  'Reduction'Co., who has completed his  labors in Hedley for this season, left  for New York on  Monday morning.  W. R. Hocking and family art; leaving on Friday morning for Vancouver,  where Mr. Hocking expects to go into  business.  Oroville boasts a new private hospi-  < tal, which is established  by Dr. F. N.  Freer, who has had charge of the railway hospital.  Mr. and Mrs. .Henie'ry, of Seattle,  came in on Saturday. Mr. Hemery is  working as assistant to J. R. C. Cootes,  electrician. Mrs. Hemery is a sister  of E. R. Kelzer, draughtsman.  John Cosgrove - captured an aristocrat at Similkameen City. It was a  big-bug at all events, measuring about  ���������an inch and a half in length and built  accordingly. i" '     ,  Mr. and Mrs. Bradshaw of Fifteen  mile have the Gazette's thanks for  some fine heads of cauliflower. The  land that can produce vegetables of  this quality is certainly all right.  A couple of men are at work on  Scott Avenue clearing off the rocks  -and levelling up, and on the portion  .already done a wonderful transformation has been effected.  ' Work is progressing rapidly on the  buildings in course of erection. Frns-  er's hall is coming on in good shape and  Mr. Shatford's residence is assuming  . good proportions.  Vol. 1 No. 1 of the Midway Star has  <;oine to hand. W. Laughton is inan-  ���������ager, and the paper is a creditable  publication that is needed in Midway  ���������and throughout the district.  The rifle shooting contest for Labor  Day has stimulated the interest in rifle  shooting, and considerable ammunition will be fired away between now  ..and September 4th..  Campbell & Shier moved into their  new building last week. Delay in getting lumber prevented them getting  the front in, and they have had the  pleasure during the hot spell of "sort  of camping out, as it were."  Miss Johnson who,taught the Nickel  Plate school last term has written to  inform the trustees that she is not  coming back after the holidays. Miss  Dalby who taught at Princeton is also  going to "yuinp" her "yob."  Mrs. Frank Bragg and family, of  Seattle, came in last week. Mr. Bragg  drove out to Penticton to meet them,  .and they have moved into the new  house which he has lately erected on  the eastern addition.  Permission lias been granted the V.  V. & 15. to cross the line between Mid-  wiy and the Siinilkanieen, evidence  being presented to the Cabinet that  there were physical difficulties which  demanded it. The. despatch from Ottawa, concerning it is somewhat vague,  but it is known locally that the crossing is at the head of Baker creek, and  that the line will not again re-cross  until the Siinilka.iueen is reached.  W. A. McLean has received instructions to get out the poles for telephone  exchange in Hedley.  Miss Vella Hamilton, ��������� of lowalta,  Altn., came in on Thursday and is  visiting her sister Mrs. Chas. Joyner  at the ore bins.  They have swift builders in Oroville.  The hospital was started on Monday  morning and completed on 'Wednesday night.  Any quantity of clean, folded newspapers, suitable for wrapping paper  or for putting under carpets, may be  bad cheap at the Gazette  office.  The Hedley Lumber Co. are finding  it difficult to keep their sawing gang  fully manned with capable workmen,  and are constantly on the lookout for  good mill hands.  Geo: Stenple, a young man aged 22  years, was drowned in the Okanagan  river at Oroville last week. 'He was  .swimming his horse across the river  at the time.  Jos. Hislop, P. L. S., went down the  valley last week to do some work for  the V. V. & E. in the lowei; Similkameen in tying in their line with the  various holdings ��������� that they pass  through.  Messrs L, G. MacHaffie. and Carl  Hairsine rode over to Fairview* on  Saturday. Mr. Hairsine remained in  Fairview and Mr, A. D. Hardie accompanied Mr. MacHaffie back on Sunday.  Mr. Irwin made the trip on the Sunday previous.  Washee man Lely says "boom come  now sure; some son of a gun white  man, all one night, steal eight of my  shirt." This Chink is a bit of a statesman in his way, and sees, dire consequences to the. United States in the  Chinese boycot. "China. no buy,  Melika go bloke."  A shooting gallery, with the firing  point in a tent east of the Grand Union  and the target a short distance up the  creek, started up business on Saturday  evening. Where constant care is exercised and the shooters can manage  to keep the target there would be no  danger, But otherwise.people using the  short trail over the foot bridge are in  danger of getting winged.  The petition circulated by .1. .1.  Marks for a Wagon road up Twenty  Mile Creek to the Golden Zone, group  met with general approval in  Hedley,  The waterworks mains are heing ex-1  tended along 1st street to Kingston |  Avenue this  week. ��������� , I  The ladies of the Methodist church j  will give a Wwn  social  at Mrs.   S.   L. ;  Smith's, on Wednesday evening, Aug.  10th, to which a    are invited.  The Nicola Herald tells of a visit of  inspection of mining properties made  by Harry Rodgers of Ashcroft  in  the  .Aspen Grove country, and  the favorable opinion which he. formed.  It is difficult for n fat man to look  comfortable on a very hot day under  any circumstances, but when he is got  up with an extra long back and sawetl-  off legs, his progress along the sidewalk seems distressful in the extreme.  $1,000 - Prize Money - $1,000  and received 80 signatures in about a  couple of hours. Mr. Marks says that  the road can be built at a moderate  cost and on a maximum grade of five  percent and the advantages to the  town from such a public work are incalculable.  J.' N. Paton who has been doing development work on his claims up on  Twenty mile was in town last. week.  Mr. Paton has received word from his  partners in Greenwood that the Duncan mineral claim on AVallace mountain, West Fork of Kettle River is  showing up particularly well. They  are taking $400 ore from the new  strike on the Duncan.  ��������� After ii careful, painstaking analysis  ofthe many reports of railway building races out of Midway, no acute  symptom of racy tendency on the part  of the C. P. R. have been discovered.  If the germs of the disease exist in the  C. P. R.'s system, it must be in a latent -form���������probably about 15 years  (late)nt at least. Nevertheless there  is some evidence that it is in the '.'ultimately"'stage. William White says  they will build ultimately.     ���������  Finley Froser'a frog has taken offence  at the invasion of its puddle by the  band of hogs that have been roving  around the town all summer, and ��������� has  has gone on strike. There have' been  no evening recitals for the past week  in consequence. This batrachian  hasn't any exclusive ideas on the color  question, but socially it draws the line  at hogs. By the by, the fame of this  animal has now gone very much abroad  It bobbed up in the Ottawa Citizen  the other day.  Tlie hot spells as a rule are not to  the liking of the. butchers, but Caws-  ton tc Eduiond's shop is equipped in a  manner to minimize the evil effect of  heat and flies. A well equipped refrigerator in which an air chamber is  provided between the. roof of the cold  storage chamber and the corrugated  iron above, upon which the ice is laid,  gives complete circulation and keeps  the meat cold and dry. In the outer  shop are two electric fans that keep  the air in motion and ward off the flies  thus keeping the place sweet smelling.  LABOR DAY  Celebration  ��������� * * f  o  Hedley, B.
