M  The Oroville Gazette has reliable information that the Great Northern  are at last to make a move for resuming operations in construction of their  line to the coast.   The Gazette says:  '���������'Our information was to the effect  that contractors were and had been  foi; several days passed, putting in  bids Oil this work with the expectation of starting actual work immediately if they chanced to be the liicky  bidders.  "There is about ,70 miles of heavy,  mountain, work between Coalmont  an'diHope. to be completed and of this  strip the part through the Coquihalla  pass is to be joint .construction for  both roads. Large survey parties for-  both companies have been in the field  all summer and everything is now in  readiness to rush construction in re:  cord breaking time. The C. P. R. has  practically let contracts tor all of the  work on their road from M.idwa'y  throughPenticton to the point where  joint construction is to begin and has  had as large a force of .men in the  grading camps all summer as it was  possible to secure. These camps are  still crying for more men. but owing  to the laborers preferring to work in  the orchards and harvest fields it has  been simply impossible to rush this  work as had been expected.  "The following railroad con tractors  composed the. party that stayed over  night here. Tuesday: R.B. Porter. Spokane; 0. W. Wenerhoff. Minneapolis;  M. VVoldson, Spokane, G. A. Carlson,  Spokane, W. L. Dean, Missoula. .1. H.  Ellion, Minneapolis, A. W. Sagel. Spokane. This is a very representative  crowd of railroad contractors and  their- presence has put confidence in  the hearts of our citizens that there is  surelv something doing this time.  The fame of Hedley camp as a  wealth producer hasextended so widely that Hedleyites;are in danger of  being sandbagged whenever they venture abroad. Last week a miner named  Paul Nelson from .the Nickel Plate  went out with a roll of Bank of B.N.A.  bills to the amount'of $175.00 which  he was taking along as a little pocket  money. But he otily got as far as  Oroville when his little nest'egg began  te excite the cupidity of the impecunious.'- Report says that he began to  imbibe too freely, but at all events he  must have taken some liberty with  the constitution of.-the U. S. or done  something which gave excuse to lay  hands on hinifor the local 'policeman  landed him in the lock-up.  But the funny part of the episode is  that even prison doors cannot with  stand the the business enterprise of  Uncle Sam's rustlers down around  Oi-ovile for- when thejnorning dawned  ���������it'was found that the jail had been  broken into during,the night and the  prisoner's roll of billsihad disappeared.  The luckless victim of .the rolling  claimed to have seeji the man who  robbed hirn and made some, attempt  at describing him.    j-  WILL AID SETTLEMENT  NOTES BY THE WAY  ARTHUR CLARE,  Secretary  MODERN WOODMEN  OF AMERICA  Hedley Local Camp meets in  Fraternity   Hall   the   first and  ��������� third Thursdays in the month.

The pilgrims have been heard from  and while old neighbors in Hedley  were commiserating the hardships  that Capt. Kent and his party were  doubtless undergoing the pilgrims  were luxuriating by the way. The  Captain writes back giving some experiences by the way from which we  glean that they had a good time and  made a jolly holiday of it.  Capt. Kent and his wife accompanied by Mrs. Vic Ryder, left Hedley on  August 3rd on horseback for the coast  by way of theHope  trail, the Captain  and his good  lady  bound  for Prince  Rupert and Mrs. Ryder to visit friends  on the coast.    The first day they made  Brown's Inn for dinner and from there  pushed on to   beyond Princeton about  six miles   where   they camped   at a  creek.     The next day  being Sunday  they  took  things easy and   did   not  start out until two o'clock in the afternoon and journeyed till evening, when  a. grassy slope was reached and  unpacking the horses they cut brush for  beds,   made a. camp  fire and  had supper and   later   regaled   on  nuts  and  candy which  were a parting gift from  Mr. Stewart Hedley.    Next  morn ing  they  found gooseberries   and   .strawberries   in abundance  anil had  strawberries  and cream   for breakfast,  and  another mess  of strawberries   for dinner on   the summit.    The  trip was a  lovely  one and  the weather good  all  the  time, and  considerable   travel on  the trail with people  going both ways  and  they saw  game in  abundance by  the way.    The next  night they reached Hope where they met Mr. Corrigaii.  That night they stayed at a hotel and  had a good night's rest leaving in the  morning    for   Roscbale   which    they  reached   for   supper   and   there   they  met Mrs.   Ryder's  mother and stayed  all niirliL.  WILL CELEBRATE ROYALLY   t-^_  Kamloops  Sparing* No Expense in Fittingly Marking Its Hundredth  Birthday  From 1812 to 1912 is a far cry for a  western city and there are few places  on this side of the Rockies where a.  modern up-to-date town is able to  celebrate the hundredth anniversary  of its founding. -  The citizens of Kamloops have not  let so.. miiquQ.!!.!! oppTiitunity pass unnoticed and a three day fete has been  arranged which, will eclipse anything  heretofore attempted in the interior  of British Columbia. Over $10,000 has  been subscribed for prizes and attractions and every cent'of it is to be spent  to give the visitors who come to help  the city celebrate, a good time for  three whole clays.  Pageants and parades, sports and  races, fireworks and fun will be the  order of day and night and the gathering will break up with a confetti  carnival when King Frolic will reign  supreme throughout the city.  Single fares have been arranged on  the Canadian Pacific Railway to cover  the 17th.   18th and 19th of September.  Great Northern Officials Will Visit Province Preparatory to Immigration Campaign  An attempt is to be made presently  by the Great Northern to, assist in the  settlement of the territory through  which the road passed in British Columbia. This is the information given  to the publicity commissioner who  has returned from Seattle and other  Sound cities where he was in confer-  ence with the l-ailway officials.  Those interviewed were Mr. M. .1.  Costello, general traffic manager; Mr.  W. A. Ross, assistant general passenger agent; and F. W. Graham, the  western immigration agent. These  officials promised', to make a trip,  through this territory in a short time  where' they will familiarize themselves with the conditions in this vicinity.  The commissioner visited the  Chamber of Commerce in Seattle and  was favorably impressed with the  manner in which the business is conducted at that place. AVhile there he  interviewed a number of the officials  of the chamber who gave him valuable  information as to the.manner in which  that body was conducted. One of the  featiues which appealed most to the  New Westminster man was the exhibit  in the chamber of the products of the  manufacturing plants of Seattle and  vicinity. In this manner both the  local people and strangers can become  acquainted with the product of the  local industries from a match to an  engine. Id is hoped that this plan may  be adopted in New 'Westminster by  the local  Board of.Trade.���������Columbian  ABLE TO HANDLE CROP  Railroads  Say Arrangements Are Being  Made to Move Grain  GROUNDLESS FEARS  Strands of Empire All Right���������Weakness  Only in Brain of This Imperial  -.--  ���������-"'���������--.-,.  -���������--������������������ ���������--Jeremiah         ���������.������������������-,   ,  Montreal, Aug. 17.���������The Canadian  Pacific and the Grand Trunk Pacific  are already arranging for the sending  west of all available empty cars to be  in readiness for the. moving of" the  immense grain crop which is expected  this year. In fact, tlie movement' of  cars to the west has already begun  and by far the biggest collection of  rolling stock the west has ever seen  will be in readiness as soon as threshing starts.  'Officials of both roads expressed the  conviction that the crop would this  yearbe handled with the minimum of  inconvenience,' while the Canadian  Northern announces that it is in a  position to handle the same proportion of the crop which it handled last  year, namely one-third.  Vice-President Bury of the Canadian Pacific Railway, whose headquarters are in Winnipeg, declares his  belief that there will be no car shortage this year.  HINTS TO CAMPERS  GENERAL NEWS  A couple of Rossland miners were  overcome by gas in the Bluebird mine  and were unconscious  for a long spell.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier is reported to be  contemplating a tour of tlie west  shortly.  The Duke of Connaught will lay the  cornerstone of a new building to accomodate the library of the  tare.  legisla-  The season has come to that stage  when forest fires may lie looked for.  and when the greatest care should be  exercised by campers and all others  in the bush in the lighting and extinguishing of fires. At this season of  the year forest fires spread with  startling rapidity and the amount of  damage which can be caused by a few-  sparks left from the noon-day camp  fire, is almost inconceivable. A few  rules for the guidance of campers in  handling their ramp fires are not out  of place at this season of the year.  Never kindle your fire in the vicinity of a rotten log, as the sparks will  live in the punk for days and will  travel many yards before breaking  into flame.  Never build your fire in the vicinity  of heavy undergrowth. The dried  bracken and ferns will catch the fire  and spread in the least wind.  Always see that your fire is extinguished at least fifteen minutes before  you leave it. Do not be content with  its apparently being out, but scrape  away the ashes and assure yourself  that there are no live coals.  Remember that a fire, once started  mav cost thousands of dollars and  many valunble'Iives before extinguished. Cigarette ends should be watched  when in the woods, as a single spark  will often cause a conflagatiou.  Ottawa. Aug. 19���������"I hope not."  This was the reply of Hon. R. H. Eni-  merson, M. P., a former member of  the Laurier cabinet, when asked if he  thought Rt. Hon. Winston Spencer  Churchill, first lord of the. admiralty,  would come to Canada to confer with  the government with refei ence to a  naval policy. o"  ������������������This country is in a position now"  continued Hon. Mi. Emmerson, who  is visiting in the city, "to formulate  its own policy with regard to naval  affairs and a demonstration such as  would necessarily be occasioned by  the visit of a British cabinet minister  might do incalculable harm.  "I am speaking imperially in saying  this and not politically. The strands  of empire are so intangible that the  least strain might break them."  Works.    V. I).  Pacific coast in  The Provincial government have  ordered an inquiry into the habits of  the Doukhobonrs in this province  with a view to determining whether mended the  they ate likely to make desirable citizens.  GENERAL NEWS  The earthquake managed to kill  more Turks than the dagoes have done  in the war up to date.  Harvesters are pouring in from  eastern Canada, to help save the crop  on the prairies.  Minister of Public-  Monk, will visit the  September.  Statutes of IT Arc y Mi-Gee and Geo.  Hrown are to be erected on Parliament Hill. Ottawa..  Col. Sam Hughes. Ministerof Militia  is apt to come in for a wigging from  his leader and colleagues in the  cabinet for indiscreet remarks in the  discussion of international affairs.  A shortage of binder twine is likely  to interfere with harvesting operations  around Moosejaw.  Nelson has hospital trouble that  appears to have put the whole town  by the ears. It originated in a scrap  between the acting matron and one of  the pupil nurses over the wiping up of  some milk that had been spilled. The  pupil exhibited a little displeasure at  the manner in which the matron called her down about the mishap and  was suspended for insubordination.  Eleven other pupil nurses asked for  her reinstatement when the matron  who had meanwhile returned recom-  board of directors to suspend all of them and this they were  foolish enough to do.  * THE LATE MRS. FRENCH  F. M. French received  word by wire  o'n Sunday morning of the death of his  'mother' which occuired at  the family  home in Vernon   that evening.    The.  event was  not unexpected as she had  been sinking gradually for a couple of  weeks after the  seizin e of an apoplectic nature which resulted in .paralysis.  Mr.   French left  on  Sunday morning  to  drive  through   to   Penticton   and  take the  boat there for  Vcrnom    Deceased had beeii for over twenty years  a resident  in Vernon   where she was  highly esteemed by all who knew her.  Previous to coining to Vernon she had  resided near Winnipeg which was her  first home  in Canada.    She  was born  in   England and   married   there   and  came  out to  rejoin her husband who  had  settled Til  M;riiitbb"a"b'i;f6i-e lliiib"  province was joined  by rail with eastern Canada:  and when  she made  the  journey from. England. Dringing with  her the  elder members  of the family  who were then quite small she had to  go by steamer to Diiluth and take rail  westward   until  the  Red   River   was  reached     and     then     westward    by  rail  as  far as  Winnipeg.     Her  high  ideals of home life were early observed  when she  first came  to Vernon  and  has resulted 'in the rearing and training of a large family of whom   every  member does  credit both  to   himself  and herself and to the home in which  they were reared. She leaves to mourn  her loss  besides her husband,  an  unbroken family of eight children most of  whom are married  and have families  of  their own.     The  writer  who has  known  deceased for  twenty years extends  sympathy to the bereaved family and takes this opportunity of bearing  tribute  to  the social and   moral  worth of the departed.

While there may be a considerable number of publications that  regard tin- matter lightly many of  tlie greater journals and inng'taincs  .-of continental reputation have conn;  out very plainly and denounced the  action as dishonorable and calculated  to place the nation in a bad light  before the rest of the civilized world.  Even the legislatures might not have  acted so basely but for the fact that  a presidential election is on and the  average politician, cannot lise above  the plane of ward politics.  can, some sane or valid reason for  fearing that tlie presence in this country of a British cabinet 'minister of  the same political faith as themselves  could-in any way effect injuriously  the cause of empire in Canada. The  The speeches of-'Winston Churchill  and .Mr. Asqnith in the British parliament when referring to the visit of  Mr. Borden and his colleagues and to  the mission on which they had gone,  read very strangely alongside of these  views expressed by Mr. Eriiniersoii.  And yet they are. all 'of them known  politically by the name of Liberal.  Wherein then lies the difference between a, British Liberal and a follower  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier if both of them  are to be considered loyal subjects of  the same sovereign and members of  the same political  party?  WATER NOTICE  The most telling shots dealt out to  the Asqnith government on their  Irish Home Rule policy were landed  by Bonar Law and Sir Edward Carson  at the Blenheim meeting. Bonar Law  twitted Mr. Asqnith with the magnitude of the reception he had just received from the corporation of the  City of Dublin, which body had point  blankly refused to extend any reception whatever to the present and late  Kings on the occasion of their last  visits to that city. Sit- Edward Carson  furnished a little additional detail concerning receptions of that corporation  by recalling the grudging courtesy  they had extended to the late Queen  Victoria on the occasion of Her  epoch-making visit to Ireland, and he  quoted from the speeches of prominent- nationalist members, at that  time who condemned the City of  Dublin for-giving any reception at all  to British royalty, and one of them.  Dillon, had said that Dublin had disgraced herself by giving a reception  to Britain's Queen in the name of the  corporation.  It may not seem a nice thing to  question the loyalty of either an individual or a party without some good  reason I'or doing so. but what are we  to make of the maunderings of R. H.  Eiiinier-son M. P.. a former cabinet  minister and colleague of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, reported in another column?  If Mr. Eninierson be a fair sample, of  Canadian Liberal and his views are  shared by any considerable number of  his party it would be interesting to  have some of them attempt to elucidate their  position   and  give, if they  The Asqiiith government will take  I about the speediest form of -political  suicide open to them if they attempt  to put into effect'their silly bluff of  prosecuting Bonar Law, Sir Edward  (.'arson and F. E. Smith on a charge  of. inciting rebellion. The, recent  speech by Winston Churchill attacking Bonar Law when taken together-  with an apparently inspired article in  a Scotch paper controlled by <-i member of the'government ' to the effect  that tlie Attorney General was preparing an indictment .with the imprisonment; nf Parnell as a precedent,  is a plain threat from the government.  There is absolutely no parallel between the two cases. Parnell was  locked up for inciting Fenian land  leaguers in Ireland to rebel against  the British government and British  laws; Bonar Law and Sir Edward  Carson have merely commended', the  loyal people of Ulster for expressing  their determination to remain loyal to  the Empire, and oppose separation  and everything which would tend to  lead thereto. If Winston Churchill  thinks Bonar Law should be imprisoned for anything he may have said in  bis Blenheim speech he. practically  says that his own father. Lord Randolph Churchill, should have been  jailed when he said ���������'Ulster will fight  and Ulster will be right." Should  their folly lead them to the extent of  putting into effect the threatened in-  dictinent the life of the Asqnith government would bo only a matter of a  few hours.

Game warden Schissler was in town  the end of the week and posted up  notices giving information re, .the  game, laws. ',.   .   ���������  , Mi-, and Mrs. G. H. Wliiteman of  Princeton were in town for a couple  of days this week and are the guests  Mr. and Mrs. Sproule.  District road supervisor Turner-  was in tOwh yesterday on his way up  the. valley. With that auto of his he  slips around swiftly and silently and  keeps all hours from cockcrow until  midnight.  A couple of strolling musicians, mail  and woman, held forth in Fraternity  hall on Friday night to a very small  audience. The public have learned  from experience to fight shy of per-  fprmances  that give too short notice.  CH. Brookes and wife came in on  Saturday from New York and are  staying at the Siinilkanieen for- a few  days. It is Mr. Brookes' intention to  .begin active development of the Golden Zone as soon as supplies can he got  on tlie ground.  -Mr. C. F. Wilson, principal of the  Hudson school in Vancouver, was in  town on Saturday between trains. Mr.  Wilson is spending part of his holidays at Keremeos, and during his brief  visit here on Saturday he had a ..run  .'through the mill. ,  Some of T. C. Brooke's white leghorn pullets hatched out in March  and brought to Hedley began laying  before tlie month of July was out.  The white leghorns maintain their  reputation as laying machines, and  are at it early and often. A layer at  4.h.months is some class.  is  hunting for dia-  Billy Lonsdale  , liionds in South Africa. In the particular camp where he is there are three  hundred whites and 1500 Kaffirs. A  temperature of IIS degrees with frequent sand storms are some of the  climatic conditions that help to make  the experience interesting.  An auto party from Kamloops consisting of F. T. Cornwall and wife,  Mrs. Meighen, F. V. Cornwall and J.  Grindrod as chauffeur were in town  on Monday on their- way back to  Kamloops by way of Merritt. They  had been to Spokane and were having  a pleasant trip.  """The hesTvy rain of T/riday had the  usual ill effect of taking out part of  the rtuine and as a result the steam  boilers had to be put in commission to  handle the works until after the repairs could be made. The breach this  time occurred up near the dam where ;  some four sections of the flume went  out.  The two diamond drills are busy at  work proving the ground between the  Nickel Plate and the Windfall group,  which the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  have under bond. One of'the diamond  drills at work is the company's own  drill and tlie other is owned in Rossland and working on contract. The  exceedingy hardness of the ground  has made busy work for the diamond  setters, but that is something that  must always be counted on in this  camp.  The Great Northern are said to be  planning schemes for settling the  country through which their lines  pass. Why, bless their hearts, that's  easy. If they had built their road  through to the coast at the time they  were expected to have done so, the  country would all be settled up now  and they wouldn't have to bother  their heads with anything of that  kind.  The directors of the Spokane Interstate fair are making special effort to  obtain a representative display of ores  of the Pacific Northwest which they  intend to keep on permanent exhibit  in a uiincralogical museum. They invite the co-operation of Boards of  Trade or citizens' committees through  adjoining states and British Columbia  and they agree to pay the freight on  all samples sent them that the senders  will agree to leave with them for the  museum.  After what the. Salnionbellies did to  (Jon Jones' hired help in Vancouver  on Saturday and the way the Vancouver baseball team in the Northwestern  league aie careering down a greased  slide it begins to look as if that silver  wear cabinet we heard so much about  from Vancouver papers last fall is going to present a mighty hungry looking appearance next Clu-istineas.  When the Minto Cup goes back to  Westminster this fall as it appears  very likely to do, there will he very  little regret throughout the province  for there is a, general feeling in British Columbia outside of Vancouver  that it will be where it belongs.  The Gazette had a pleasant visit on  Saturday from Mr. Leonard P. Low-  son, cartoonist of the Winnipeg Free  Press, and from .Mr. R. L. Cawston of  Keremeos with whom he is staying.  Unfortunately the visit was provok-  ingly short, for thoy could only stay  between trains, and as ill-luck would  have it, the train that day was very  late in getting iii from the south. Mr.  Lowson is preparing illustrations for a  new prospectus which the owners of.  the old It ranch are bringing out  shortly and as they are Winnipeg men  thoy succeeded in getting the services  of Mr. Lawson for a while to look  after the. artistic end of the work for  them. The Gazette was looking forward to the pleasure of taking him up  the gravity tramway and showing  him some of the finest views to^be..  seen anywhere, in Canada���������views that  would he sure to appeal most strongly  to an artist.  An action was he'ard last, week in  Princeton which will interest residents of this valjey and serve to disabuse the minds of many of a. wrong  impression they had formed in reference to the game laws. Game warden  Schissler had two prospectors. Billy  Knight and Charlie Day up on a  charge of having deer meat in their  possession in the close season. It has  always been thought by prospectors  and miners that a prospector had the  right to kill deer- out of season for his  own sustenance while actively engag-*  ed in prospecting. The Mineral Act a  few years ago gave the impression  that a prospector was exempt but  there is now a clause .making it subject to the Game Act and the Ganu-  Act inakes no exception. The meat in  question was killed last fall during the  open  season and  cured and the game  laws gave no such privilege. It being  the first action under the new arrangement the defendants were let off  with a fine of. one dollar and costs  each.  The matter of a superior school for  the Similkameen has been finally- settled and on Monday S. L. Smith, secretary of the school board received a  wire from L. W. Shatford, M. P. P.  advising him of the fact that the department had agreed to sanction a  superior school for- the valley to be  located at Hedley and that the official  notice of same would follow in due  course by mail. The board will now  have their hands full to get everything, in readiness,.to^tjtart after the  holidays. Seating must be procured  for the extra room and two teachers  employed. The principal will take  the junior fourth grade in addition to  the higher class of* those who have  passed the entrance, and the assistant  teacher will take all the classes below  that. The opportunity of having this  advanced work taken up in the valley  and obviating the necessity of undergoing the 'serious cost of sending  pupils out to attend school elsewhere  is something which we. are sure will  be fully appreciated by those who  have children to be educated.

N. right-of-way before putting in  estimates for the. construction of a  little more of the G. N. railway. AVe  would like to see a little more grade  built before the snow Hies.  A very enjoyable evening was spent  by a number of the young people in  the district as the guests of Airs. Richter at the hall. Dancing was greatly  enjoyed hy all.     Airs. Sproule and AV.  Daly gave much   satisfaction with the  music they provided.  L. P. L-iwson left again for Winnipeg on Tuesday to resume his duties  as cartoonist on the staff of the Winnipeg Free Press. He was very much  pleased with the Similkameen valley  and regretted that he had no lime to  remain after completion of his work  he re  Fred AVilson, cousin of Vincent  Wilson, of Horn Lake, spent the week  end in Kerenieos and district. Air.  AVilson is now principal of one of the  Vancouver schools. It is now nearly  four years since he was in the valley  and he says it is wonderful the difference that has taken place during I hat  time.  Aliss Bessie and Freida Richter left  Tuesday for St. Anne's Convent. Aric-  tori.-i, where they will spend nearly a  year more in studies. The district will  feel the loss of these popular young  ladies.     All join   with  us in  wishing  days by a heavy snow storm   in which  they claimed it snowed eight inches.  On   Friday   last   when   AleCurdy's  road  gang was   tearing up   the gravel  they ran across two skeletons, presumably  Indians,   one of which   was in a:  'pretty  fair state  of  preservation, nil  bones  from the funny bone to the last  bone in   the little   tocw.cre  there: lessons  in  physiology  can   now   be had  free of charge by going to the museum  in the P. 0. One jaw, 'which was rather ghastly  to ' behold.. measured   five  incites across and still held' a  beautiful row of teeth.     Apparently the one  time owner   of   this jaw   must have  been a  regular- grinding mill   for the  rest of the  tribe.    A peculiar thing in  one of the skeletons  was  that  it was  covered  with  a copper   green, stain;  where the copper came from is beyond  ns to find  out so many  theories being  advanced.     Alongside of the departed  a battle axe or club was found.    This  was   made out of some 'kind- of slate  and is shaped somewhat like a. paddle  on a  small scale  and on it some rude  engravings were made  fin the flat of  the blade, and towards the point were  eleven notches on one edge and twelve  on   the other,   whether these   notches  denoted .'victims   is another  question  we are unable to   answer.    Also a. fine  flint spear head was found and strange  to note there was jet black hair lying  the    whole   length   of   one   skeleton.  Anyone who  wishes  to  do   any  tall  thinking can step  around  and   interview the bones.    They will be at home  all week.

Alanery lost a valuable mare  on Saturday last. She got snagged or  staked a few days  ago.  Some people down at Siinilkanieen  are wondering if the editor of the  Gazette really wrote that article in  the issue of August 1st entitled "Some  Blue Laws". The majority are charitable enough to come to the conclusion  that the "'devil" had put that article  through while the Major was out.
