How little the American market  really means to Canada from the  standpoint of the wheat groAver is  shown in the United States crop reports for this year. These indicate  that the whetft yield will again be  over 700,000,000 /uushels, or close to  the tremendous yield of 740,000,000  bushels, obtained last year. In the  calendar year of 1912 the exports of  wheat from the United States were  60,000,000 bushels, compared with 32,-  000,000 bushels in 1911. But exports  for ' 1912 Avould include only a part  of the exportable surplus of the 1912������  crop, domestic needs having to be  supplied after the harvesting, and a  large part of the surplus being held  over for export this year.  , lliviil not a Customer  These figures mean that the United  States this year Avill have an enormous quantity of Avheat for export.  This wheat must be sold in the  Avorld's market in competition Avith  Canadian export wheat. The United  States is a great rival of Canada as  a Avheat exporting nation. Yet the  farmers of Canada Avere told that the  market of ninety millions Avould furnish them with a demand for their surplus Avheat and would mean money in  their pockets. While that statement  was being made the United States  Avas actually exporting wheat to Canada.  Speaking of the letting of tin: contract on the Coijiiihalla from Ottei  Summit to Hope to McAi-thur Bros,  by the Kettle Valley Company, the  West Yale Review says:  "The awarding of sub-contracts will  probably be announced in a very short  time as many bidders have been over  the route and have their tenders ready  to submit, and there is no doubt that  they will be called fur at once., The  fact that the year is far advanced is no  bar to the beginning <>f work. There  remains more than three months before there will be any snow, and probably two months more before tbeie i.-.  likely to be deep .-.now, and a lot of  work can be accomplished in that time.

Ottawa, Aug. 12.���������Canada's plans  for participation in the Panama Pacific Exposition at San Francisco are  y������t in the formative stage, but the -*x-  Libit, it Avas learned today at the department of agriculture, Avill be of  much the same lines as similar exhibitions, elsewhere.  The natural resources of the country will of course be the basis of the  shoiving to be made.  A year ago, Mr William Hutcheson,  Dominion ~ exhibition commissioner,  Avent to San Francisco, on the instruc-  ons of the Hon. Martin Burrell. minister of. agriculture, ��������� and selected a  site for the Canadian building. It is  the intention to start construction  Avork this fall. The structures and the  expenditure in arranging and transporting the exhibits Avill cost probably  half a million dollars.  In Keeping With Times  It  Avill  be  of  a design in keeping  Avith   the importance of the  country.  In featuring the natural resources of  the Dominion, there Avill be exhibits  of all kinds of Avheat and grain, fruit  in the  natural  and  preser.yed forms,  vegetables,    minerals,    all   kinds    of  Avood produced in  Canada, including  pulp, fish, game, fur-bearing animals,  mounted and  fair  exhibits along the  same lines.   Manufacturers Avishing to  disnlay their products will, from present  plans,  be   accommodated   in   the  Canadian   building.       Several   of   the  ijro". inces will have exhibits of their  own   in   conjunction   with 'the   -nam  one.   The general purpose of the show  of course Avill be to attract people to  Canada and to facilitate immigration  and the patronage of Canadian industries.  Details ^N'ot Concluded  The detailed arrangements are yet  to be concluded, but Avhen the Ghent  Exhibition concludes, Commissioner  Hutcheson will proceed to San Francisco and direct arrangements.  As previously stated, the commercial reasons which have precluded  Great Britain patricipaling in the exhibition do not apply to Canada. It  not only is close by, but naturally  stands to reap greater results from  the advertising such events afford  than could be possible Avith the  Mother Country.  OttaAva,   Aug.    12.���������On   an   official  visit to the Dominion which will take  him   to   the   Pacific   coast,   where   he  will    probably    meet    the    Dominion  minister of trade and commerce, Professor   J.   M.   Goldstein   arrived   hers  today.     He   is   head   of   the   Moscoav  School of Commerce and hopes to further trade between Russia and Canada both by Atlantic routes, the Panama Canal and by direct steamships  betAveen VancoiiA-er and Vladivostock.  To   a   Province .representative   he  said   that   with   the   opening   of   the  Panama Canal, it might be taken for  granted  that Russia  Avould  establish  a line of steamers betAveen her own  shores   and   Vancouver.     He    stated  frankly that Russia would be in the  market   to   compete .with   Australian  imports to Canada 'in^ that in return  there    Avas   no   reason ' why   Russia  should   not  take   large   quantities  of  goods manufactured in the Dominion.  Several steamship companies had reported faA'orably, he declared, on tire  Vladivostock, Vancouver and Panama  route.  A SORE  DISAPPOINTMENT  Last year the Granby produced 27,  000,000 lbs. copper at a cost of 10'' cents  per lb.  The Silver Hoard at Ainsworth is to  have a double compartment shaft to  the 500 foot level,  It   was 'indeed a   heavy  disappointment  to   the  people  of   Hedley   who  were preparing  to  give  the   visiting  geologists of  the International Geological   Congress a good  time   during  their stay in the  camp,   Avhena wire  came from Ottawa, stating that owing  to the small  number who had applied  for  this particular   trip the  Congress  committee  had deemed advisable   to  cancel it.     While the disappointment,  here  Avas very keen   we are prepared  to believe that it was no less so to Mr.  Camsell, Avho we are sure had regarded  the special geological features  of  this'camp, as being one of the choicest  bonbons he had to offer the visitors in  the   line  of economic  geology.      The  time of the visitors was so limited and  the  amount of ground  they had  laid  out to cover so A-ust that it aw-is almost  impossible   to  compass  it  all.    Those  who   would    have   taken    this    trip  through the Similkameen  would have  had to  leave the  comforts of  the special   train   for   the   main   party  and  would  have had to miss Rossland and  Phoenix as well.  In view of those two  disadvantages   it  was  scarcely  to   lie  wondered  at   that   the   Siinilkanieen  trip was cut out.  The committee in Hedley who had  the matter of entertainment in hand  are nevertheless grateful for the assistance theymet with from those who  were asked to con tribute, and those  who volunteered their help. The Hedley Gold Mining Co. in particular were  doing the handsome thing in the provision they had made for meeting the  party with autos at the station to  convey them to the Hotel Similkameen;  take them up on the tramway to the  mine; providing a special luncheon for  them up there, and giving them as  many hours as they wanted through  the mine. There was also the special  donations made by Messrs. G.P. Jones  and T. AVnlter Beam to the general  entertainment funds and neither must  Ave forget the kindness of Mrs. T.  Waltci Beam in agreeing to take the  oversight of preparing the tables for  the town banquet which it was decided to give them at the Hotel Similkameen.  Australia's experience in-the organization of a naval force,furnished a  useful object lesson to Canadians.  Australia is at work, it must be remembered, upon a policy of permanent naval development, and it is being done on a scale and under conditions little understood in Canada, although claims ��������� are repeatedly made  that "Australia is building her own  navy."  In 1909 Australia agreed to set up  a Fleet Unit of her own. It was to  comprise a battle-cruiser, three light  cruisers, six destroyers and three submarines. It was to cost, at the prices  then prevailing, $3,700,000, and it  would need about 2,500 officers' and  men. The Admiralty (fold the Conference that "Simply to man such a  squadron, omitting auxiliary requirements and any margin for reliefs,  sickness, ere, the minimum numbers  required would be about 2,300 officers  and men.  More 3Ien Needed  That was in 1909; the .vessels. designed today for the most part are  larger, and require more men. The  Dreadnought of 1913 will need about |  1000 men, as against 7S0 for the battle-  cruisers ordered by Australia and  New Zealand in 1909 and the destroyers of today need 100 men instead  of 66; so that the personnel of a fleet  unit of thoroughly modern ships probably would not fall far short of  3,000.  Tried Building One  The Australians ordered all the vessels of their fleet unit in 1909 and  1910. Most of them wore built in  Great Britain, but they undertook to  build ohe of the light cruisers, the  "Brisbane," in Australia. Very slow  progress ivas made with this ship,  alike in beginning her and in completing her; shy has not been finished yet.  Henderson's Plan  Later the Australians decided to obtain a comprehensive report upon the  Avhole  naA-al   situation  as  it affected  the Commonivealth, and their Government requested Admiral Sir Reginald  Henderson, an officer with experience  in administration to prepare a scheme  for  it.    He  A'isited  the   country  and  drew  up a  remarkable  plan, exceedingly   ambitious   and   very   carefully  worked out.    The Australian Government promptly accepted the plan.  Tivonty-two  Years  Sir   Reginald   Henderson   proposed  that     the     Australian     Government  should embark on a proerramme which  Avould last for 22 years���������that is, until  1933.    During the whole of this long  period every step forward Avas to be  prearranged and taken in a prescribed  order.    When it was completed, Australia would have the following fleet:  1. A fighting fleet eight battle-cruisers.  Ten light cruisers.  A  torpedo  fleet of IS  destroyers  and .12 submarines.���������i. e.  three divisions of destroyers and  four divisions  of submarines.  A set of auxiliary vessels comprising three depot ships for the destroyer flotillas and one fleet repair ship.  Or 52 ships in all. Admiral Henderson calculated that this force when  completed would require nearly l.">.-  000 officers and men. It was to cost  ������SS,000.000. or $<i2S,000,000.  The Admiral recommended���������and  this is important to Canada���������annua!  expenditures, rising from fifteen to  twenty-five millions." Of the total cost  of the scheme only $113,000.00, or  little more than one-fourth, is accounted for in (he actual cost of the  ships.  QL'l'EJ'LVG   THE   HAJJVKSTJiKS  I.   VV.  W.  for  Directing   Their   Activities  Trouble in  a   New  Direction  RailAvay construction and other  public works have heretofore been the  main object of attack on the part of  the I. \V. W., but the farmers who  make up the large volume of voters  have been-very little effected. Lately  the I. XV. XV. have been trying a new  tack as will be shown by the folloAV-  ing press report:  Minot, X. D., Aug. 11.���������Eighty arrests Ave re made here late last night  as a result of  riotous  scenes  which  ��������� c  followed      attempts      of     Industrial  Workers of the World  to hold street  meetings     and     encourage     harvest  hands to decline offers of work unless  waees are increased.  This will undoubtedly arouse the  ire of the agriculturists and the I. W.  XV. will have added another enemy  to the many who are noiv anxious  to see them Aviped out for good.. As  a labor organization they are noAVhere  and the Knights ��������� of Labor will not  recognize  them.  In many places the public have  met their acts of violence and it has  had a salutary effect. Avhile eA-ery  onco in a while some of them are  hanged. At present there is one of  them awaiting the rope at Creston.  B-. C. for a coAvardly murder committed at a road camp.  A PECULIAR SITUATION  Rumor    has    it    that   the    tihnons  children have been left here unprovided for in a manner that   looks almost  like child  desertion.     Over a   month  ago   the  mother    left   with  some  of  the children  on what she  gave out to  be a  visit to   her-people   in   Washington   state,   taking two   of the children  with    her and'  leaving   three   others  here  with their  father-and ,-i girl who  had   come   up to  visit them.    A week  or so later   the father left   saying that  he had received  a -telegram from Spokane  that his  father was very ill and  he   went   off   leaving   the   remaining  children with the girl.   No money was  left  to  provide'food or clothing  and  the  girl on   going to the  stores found  that  the  Simons'credit   bad been .exhausted for some time.     Nevertheless-  local merchant's did   not absolutely refuse  when they  knew that  the children .would  have  to go  hungry   if no  food was supplied them and have been  giving enough  out  of   the  stores   to  keep them from starving.    Some time  before  that   one of the  brothers   who  had been working at the mine skipped  out leaving unpaid bills, and the whole  crowd of them   have  been noted  for  their  impecuniosily and reluctance to  pay  anything unless   they \A-eie made  to pay. although   they were nearly al-  Avays supplied here with work at good  ivages.     liver since  the advent of the  Simons croAvd of Pelonsers the arrival  of gypsy-like  immigrant wagons from  across   the   line   have  been    regarded  with more  or less suspicion   and there  is    some  relief    when   they   pass   on.  Meanwhile   the wonder  is���������what is to  become  of the   kiddies   that are   here.  They  seem   lo be   kept clean   but aie  getting more ragged'every day.  GONE AND DONE IT  tin1     Okanagan  1   crow   to   pick  The long expected Itochford gold  dredge built for W. I Ian ford of Seattle  and associates by the Shaake Co., of  New Westminster, to operate on the  Fraser River near Hope Station, is  now Avithin two miles of Hope. It  will reach the scene of its operations  early next week.���������Ilevieiv  Drifting in the Argo tunnel at Green-  ivood Avhich had been suspended for a  fortnight owing to foul air has been  resumed. Relief from the trouble ivns  sought by a line of eight inch pipe  leading from the tunnel into a stack  75 feet high erected at the portal.  The members of  Printers' Guild have  AVith the editor of the I'enticton Herald. He never took anybody into his  confidence when the editors of the district visited Penticton a i'ew days ago.  and yet the following modest hut-  significant paragraph appeared in last  week's 11 era Id:  "Mariono���������At the home of Rev. J.  A. Cleland. on Tuesday. August 12th,  Louise Winnifired Brown to .1. Douglas Tompkins."  Now it may not be in good form to  congratulate the bride on accasions of  this kind, but if the groom in this case  proves as genial, versatile and agreeable a husband as he is an editor, Mrs.  Tompkins is certainly to be congratulated. May her hubby ever remain.  "Douglas, Douglas,  tender and true."

Elsewhere in this issue we make reference to the inadei]iiate mail service
that lias for years been tolerated between the Okanagan and Miniilkameen
valleys and which seems to be getting
worse, all the while instead of better.
When 'a letter, posted in Victoria for
Hedley.. at the same lime as one posted in Vernon for Hedley, reaches its
destination u day ahead of the Vernon
letter there is something decidedly
wrong. It is not enough to say that
the same service was being given under- a previous administration. Governments are not elected to do the
same as their predecessors but to do
better. The postal service is one of
the great avenues of business and it
should be administered in a businesslike way.
The great mistake in the. administration of the Canadian Post office
Department.was made when a former
postmaster-general. ��� Sir William Mid-
ock, conceived the idea of making a
name for himself of grubbing parsimony to produce a revenue froni the
���department of a. million or more a
year above- all expenses, and to what
��� purpose? Simply that the government
might, have all the more to squander
on political favorites-and dish out
lavishly to those who put up for the
campaign funds. It was "saving at
the spigot to waste at the bung" when
mail routes were cut off on all sides
and the service to the people slowed
down to produce a surplus from the.
department for the glorification of Sir-
William and then lavishly give aAvay
from fifty to a hundred millions a
year to favorite contractors over and
above what was necessary or honest
in the building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway. Public, utilities were
never meant to produce revenue for
other purposes than their own maintenance, and revenue, run he from a
public utility is something Avhich at
all times should be regarded with
suspicion as an infringrnent upon the
rights of the public. Instead of earning pi-ai.se for the head of a department or being a matter for public
boast us .Sir William Mulock made it
r ���to produce a surplus from the postal
service���it should rather subject him
to the severest censure for depriving
the public of their rights.
And now what is to be the remedy?
The mail service has been abridged
and impaired, when is the maximum
of efficiency to be restored? A new
Postmaster-general is at the helm and
it is up to lii'fn to give the government
the credit for reforming the postal
service. He has already been blamed
for .sundry- dismissals blithe has not
dismissed enough yet while there are
left .those who had a hand in' the impairment. As long as he retains the
services of those who were instruinen-.
t;il in cutting off mail routes 'and
otherwise slowing dowii the si-i-vie-,
he need .i'X|iv'ct no recommendations,
from'such men I'or betterment. First
let him appoint men in each province
who are capable and in thorough sympathy with .a l-iTorin and betterment
of the service, and let these men make
an investigation (not cursory but
thorough)'of all the mail routes in order to 'ascertain why cei-Uiinciuta.il-
meiits were 'made and who was responsible for them. Any official.be he
inspector, postmaster, mail (clerk or
mail carrier, who has been responsible
even of a suggest ion which has res id t-
sil in the cutting oif of mail service
that has caused any man to wait a day
longer for a letter mailed to him 1'ioni
any part' of the Dominion, should be
given to understand that he lias been
niiilty of a misdemeanor. If any
existing routes have become obsolete
by reason of changes and they can be
bettered, by nil means better them,
but have done with clieese-pai ing
which can result in impairment of
service. Public convenience not revenue, should be the watchword in the
postal service.

OULD you travel the
road that leads to Prosperity? Then read the advertisements. They are tbe
guideposts pointing the way.
Disregard the advertisements
and you are likely to go
Avrong. and even if you finally reach your destination you
do so only after needless delays and unnecessary traveling.
The traveler who would
disregard guideposts. who
would not examine them at
every opportunity, would be
called foolish. He would get
little sympathy when he complained of time lost going the
wrong direction.
The man who neglects to
read the advertisements is
disregarding guideposts and
is taking unnecessary chances
and is delaying his own progress.
If you fail to read and profit
by the advertisements you
are giving your neighbor who
does read tbem an advantage.

Hedley   Gazette
Fine Job  Printing THE HEDLEY GAZETTE AUG 21. 1913.  Town and District.  XV. Gosnell of the "Princeton Brewery was in town last week on business.  There is a rumor to the effect that  the Coalmont Coal property is to reopen shortly Avith a force of-10 men.  The stables on Jim Grant's place in  ���������Marion ���������Valley-were burned down last  Aveek. Fire smouldering' in a manure  heap close by ivas'the cause.  The-Indians down the valley at the  - mission, Sixteen Mile and Ashnola  ,f 'have a baseball team-that they-intend  .' to run up against Hedley one of these  ] fine days.  Tommy Daly is  pitching  now   for  j        Walla  Walla in   the Tri-State League  ;        and the club is  bumping along in the  f        grind-with about the same number of  [ ivins as losses to its credit.        '  I  i A new garage has been   build at the  f.        Avest side of the Hedley  Gold Mining  ,-*     Company's warehouse.    Tho floors are  !        of cement and facilities  are-provided  'i        for scrubbing it out with the hose,  i      '     Rev.   Dr. White,  superintendent of  ;        Methodist missions for British Colum-  ,        bia,  Avns in  Hedley. last week accoin-  f      -panied by his son  and by David Spencer of Victoria' and-his two daughters.  '   The moving picture shows are likely  to be resumed-in>a week  or so.     Pos-  i       sibly next week sonic more films will  1        be to band for a show for  the  Friday  and Saturday preceding Labor Day.  ������������������  E. D.'Boeing and  his force  of men  returned from Granite Creek   the end  1       of last week where  they had finished  ,up    the    bridge   over   the   Tulameen  which   they   ivere   building --at   that  point.  T. J. Winn, inspector of licensed  premises for the province, came to  ��������� ���������Hedley last Friday accompanied by  constable McGuffle, and made ��������� an inspection of the hotels here between  trains.  Climatically the summer of 1913 has'  been one of paradoxes. It has been  one of the coolest summers experienced in this part of the province for  years and yet it had one week that  Avas a record breaker for heat.  Miss Blake arrived from Victoria on  Friday last on her Avay to Princeton,  but stopped ofi" at Hedley to spend a  few days with old friends here. She  is the guest of Mrs. G. P. Jones, and  during her- stay is meeting a number  of her old friends ivho are pleased to  see her back in the' valley again.  Harry Tweddle came up from Kere;  meos in his Cadillac car on Friday last  to take back H. J. Scott and daugbt:  ers whom' he'ivas going to drive over  to Penticton- but had the misfortune  to break a gear here and Avas stranded  until anew pait could be obtained.  By Tuesday, however, the part came  and he had it all; fixed, up again.  A dance Avas given' in) Fraternity  Hall on Friday; last in honor of Miss  , Avonia Jones Avho is going back to  school in Victoria in afew days. There  Avas a good turnout' and a, pleasant  time is reported. W.' Daly was -up  from Keremeos to help ivith the music  and Keremeos was also well represented among the guests.  H. J. Scott of the Canadian Explosives Co., Limited, Victoria, ivas in  toAvn last :week accompanied by his  two daughters, In the palmiest days  of Camp McKinney, Mr. Scott used to  pass there in his trips through the  province as salesman for the Hamilton  . Powder- Co. Avhich has been merged in  the Canadian.Explosives Co, and now  he is manager of the Victoria' branch  of the institution.  George Allison had sufficiently recovered from the gun accident to be  able to return to Kerenieos on Saturday. F. H. French took him to the  station in his auto. It will be a couple  of weeks yet before he ivill be able to  put his foot to the ground or attempt  to bear any -Aveight on it, but everything is favorable for a very satisfactory recovery with no serious after  effects.  General  regret   ivas  felt   in    toivn  Avhen   the  news   reached    here    that  Chief Charlie  Allison  had died  that  morning. On Sunday he took a decided  turn for the Avorse Avhen he became  unconscious and  remained so  except  for one or tivo short rallies of mi 'hour  or so until his death ivhich occurred at  six o'clock on Tuesday morning.    Deceased  was a useful man  Avhose sympathies ������������������were always -on   the  side  of  morality and order   and his influence  exerted to maintain it.   He never tried  ro screen any person, Indian or Avhite,  >vho broke the law or tried to debauch  ;he Indians, and most of the  convic-  ,ions under the Indian Act which have  >een    obtained    here    were   secured  hrough his help.     His death  in   the  irinie of life is a distinct loss  to  the  land   and is  generally   regretted   by  hose who  had   the   best opportunity  o know bis worth.  Special re-opening services -will be  held in the methodist church on Sunday next botlumbrning ..arid evening,'  the morning service -to'be at 10:30 and  theevening service at 8:00.-Both.Revs.  McKenzie and Cameron will take, part  in the morning service and in this respect it will be what Father Pat used  to call "a double-header." - The evening service--will he'taken byi-Mr."iMc-  ���������/MiY/Aii alone, Mr. Cameron going back  lo rKeremeos to take his .evening ser-  cice there. The choir are preparing  special music'for both.services.  M: MacKenzie, who has been teller  in the Bank of B. jN. A. here for the  past two years,- received word last  Aveek ��������� that ��������� he is to be "transferred, to  Victoria. Business men of Hedley  ivill be sorry to see him leave the  branch, 'but are pleased to know that  the change'is,a promotion for, him and  Avill enable him to gain .ivider experience in the service of the Bank in  which he is .sure to'rise, for one of  -Mac's ability and good sound sense is  bound to receive the recognition which  he merits.  Who says real estate is not moving  in Hedley? The butcher shop on  Webster street' has" had three oivners  in about as many months. The last  purchaser is J.'K. Fraser Avho is going  to enlarge it arid fix it up as a moving  picture theatre. The'insurance restrictions against moving picture shows  make it undesirable to keep Fraternity  Hall under the ban placed by the uri-  'defAvriters against the .movies, and  hence the decision to hold the sIioavs  in another building where the risk  will not be communicated to other  lines to the extent to which it ivas  when holding the shows in the hall.  Although they have not as a body  engaged in any propaganda or meddled  with matters outside their own affairs,  the. Okanagan Printers' Guild might  wellhave taken up at the. recent meeting the matter of-mail facilities between the Okanagan and the Similkameen ivhich are now about as stupid,  unbusinesslike and unsatisfactory as  they could very well be. If the  members of the Guild in the upper  end of the Okanagan valley knew that  their .papers .ivhich come .down the  lake on Thursday of each week, never  reach .Hedley . or Princeton until  the next Monday, and often not until  Wednesday, they would doubtless institute n. crusade against' an arrangement so palpably behind the times as  the present postal arrangements between these points is found to be.  Road supervisor-  H. A. Turner was  in toivn on Monday   in his auto on his  way to  visit all the road  camps west  of  here.      He  was   accompanied   by  Engineer  E.  A.   Cleveland  ivho   last  year  laid  out the  route of  the trans-  provincial auto road.     They left Rock  Creek  over on  the Kettle -River Monday morning and were here the same  afternoon! by three   o'clock,' Avhich is  pretty ; good  evidence of the  state of  ���������f-hea-oads,; Avhen they could-make that  time.'- i.Mrv Cleveland--drew   a   very  pretty  ivord ;picture   of   the  natural  beauties .of the route and particularly  that over Anarchist Mountain   Avhere  harvesting, has-begun and  Avherethe  varying shades of the ripening crops  stretching off   to  either side   of the  highivay filling the  valleys and covering the  mountains sides and rounded  tops,, produced a scene of rare beauty.  All hues Avere blended from the green,  of the growing crops,   shading off into  the yellowing hues  of those semi-ripe,  and  ending in   the   fields   that   ivere  straivwhite to the harvest.  Last Thursday the Gazette  had  the  pleasure of a visit from O. H.  Woody,  editor and publisher of tke  Okanagiin  Independent,   who  Avas   enjoying   an  auto trip through this part of British  Columbia.   The  Independent is  pub  lished at Okanogan  (that is   the   way  they spell it doivn there).-which is situated on the Okanagan   River    below  Oroville on the line of the neiv road to  Wenatchcc.     The  party accompanying Mr.   Woody consisted   of   Judge  XV. C.   Brown,   mayor of Okanogan,  Mrs. Woody, Miss Mabel Woody and  Miss Nettie   Ferbrache.     They  ivere  travelling in Judge Brown's   Ford car  and had gone north as.far as Kamloops,  returning by iva.y of Nicola and  Similkameen,    and  they   ivere.  warm    in  their praises of the oxellence of British  Columbia roads  ivhich  enabled  them  to calculate ivith  some  degree  of. accuracy the time necessary  to  cover a  given   number-of   miles.   At ;Hedley  the  editor of the   Gazette    had    the  pleasure of shoivingthe party through  the stamp mill   and   they    regretted  that time  would  not allow  them   to  make the trip up to the mine.  Rev. A. H. Cameron continued his  interesting reminiscences on mission  work after the close of his sermon on  Sunday night. On this occasion his  field was the famous section fifteen of  the C.P.R. lying between  Kenora and  *-7'*Wr.'r  Buy the House of Hobbenlin Bir&ni  "'       ���������''���������'���������..���������      ��������� ' '      '     ' " ' ���������'-,���������'.-������������������������������������- ,       j     . ^vftA r-;",���������������������������.-,  and   Get the  Best on the ,Mar:ket  We have just taken into stock a large shipment p������  their up-^to-date, tailor-made'clDthfi^5tSviS  '���������& Stylish Siuiil  to sell frqm $20.op to $25.op  We will be pleased to show them to ypu  :������i  Successors to '  (J.

mercifully killed. A shot ivas heard
in Chinatown followed by the yelping
of a. dog and a little later it n*as found

A rather bad piece of business has
been done by a rancher on the Richter
range by putting up barbed wire
around or partly around his place
which has caused n lot of damage to
be done to horses. It is a two strand
affair tied up in any old fashion to

like this should not be allowed and the
law should bring anyone avIio does not
put up a regulation fence, to time.

office at Berwick, N. S., is composed
of fruit-growers, Avho wish to secure
more satisfactory access to the English market. The company is to provide British steamers able to carry
from 8,000 to 12,000 barrels, specially
built for the trade, ivith refrigerating
There are to be five A'oyages, the
