Work to Begin on Waterloo and Fontenoy Properties in a Few Days  After lqng.Avaitihg and much negotiation a bond has been secured on the  Waterloo arid Fontenoy properties in  Camp McKinney by Victoria parties,  and the Avork''of'miwatering is to he-  gin this Aveek.   :  The Waterloo was owned: byrthe  Waterloo Gold Mining Co. of  which--  the controlirig/interest Avas vested in  the   Clark   family,,  the  late  Dennis  Clark  holding a large amount of the  stock and his demise  Avas,the cause of  the long delay in  getting things in  shape to resume operations.,    A great  deal of stock Avas also held in Spokane  outside the Clark interest.   The Fori-.  tenoy Avhich adjoins the Waterloo on  theeas^t, and the Avest line <if Avhich is  lessthan; 100 feet from the Waterloo  main working shaft, is OAvned  by the  Fontenoy   Mining   Co. 'lithe   leading  stock holder in it being ox-Lieutenant  Governor Dunsmuir.    The  claim had  been held for many  years by the late  Hugh Cameron who. sold it for .$20,000  cash to the company formed in  the.  late fall of 1898 to take it over'and <le  velopment began in  the spring of 1899  but internal friction led to a protract-  shutdoAvn.  The Fohteiioy. deposit upon AA'hich5  all' the development work; Avas, done  consisted of a white quartz vein Avell  riiineralizedwith ga|enu and carrying  values in < both silver and gold the  former. being the leading value although the gold contents Avere of ten  shown to he good enough of themselves. But the,niain value.of the Fontenoy in the opinions of; old-timers in  the camp was in its position to catch  the Waterloo vein Avhiclvran east and  Avest, carrying high gold values and  fpllpAvedlhyundergrouhd. drifts of the  Waterloo almost is not actually up to,  the western boundary lino of the Fontenoy itself.  It Avas this state of ^affairs .which  made the Waterloo interests headed  ,by the late Dennis Clark anxious to  secure the Fontenoy a nd relyi ng upo n  the disorganization existing in tlie  Fon tenoy, negotiations to that end  were constantly kept up until his  death a feAV years ago and since then  hope of amalgamation of the tAvo interests Avhich AA'as for years a fond  dream in the old camp AA'as almost  abandoned by the most optimistic.  The Waterloo AA'as developed to a  depth of 250 feet; it has a fairly Ayell-  equipped stamp-mill which turned out  considerable bullion betAveen the years  1900 and 1904 and paid some dividends  to stock holders. It had its difficulties  to contend Avith in the matter of faulty ground like all other properties in  the cainp upon Avhich development  to any considerable-depth Avas attempted; but Avhen it is remembered that  the Cariboo encountered something  like BOO of these faults in its career  during its production of $1,700,000 in  bullion, and every one of the 300 faults  obedient to "Schmidt's LaAv of the  Hade" their existence in the Waterloo  (troublesome as  thev were at times)  MORE CONTRACTS LET  TROUBLE ON WEST END  Kettle Valley People   Make   Move  for  Start on East End Section from  Rock Creek to Bull Creek  Much dissatisfaction has been felt in  the Boundary because of the delay on  the part of the Kettle Valley people to  get to Avork on that end and the dissatisfaction was not lessened at the  manoeuvre of-the raihvay .in putting  on a, man or tAvo in June to observe a  little technicality in the;.matter of  commencement. Over at Grand Forks  they held an indignation meeting  .but now theraihyay has at last decided to get busy as Avill be seen from the  following /.news    item    appearing   in  coast papers.,  Victoria, Aug. ; 18th--A contract for  the extension of the   Kettle; Valley  RailAvay line from Rock Creek to Bull  Oreekv oh  the  West Fork of Kettle  River,  a distance of thirty-five miles,  has  been ;.awarded   to  Messrs.  L.  M.  Rice & Co., contractors of Vancouver  and..Seattle.     The grade has already  been completed from MidAvay Avest for  ten miles.    Construction Avork will be  started Avitliin three \veeks.   Mr. J. J.  Warren, of Toronto/president of the  railway, company,  has left   here   for  Midway.  The ; building7 of a twenty-five-mile  section of the same road from Merritt  south through Nicola' Valley is iioav in  progress. The com pan y has au thority  tpexterid its line from a point south  of/Merritt. across the Hope mountains  to Ruby Creek, beloAV Hope. At Ruby  Creek after, bridging the Fraser RU-cr  connection'Avill be established Avith  the Canadian Pacific Raihvay,'-.-..-whose'  tracks it, already connects Avith at  MidAvay and Merritt. The distance  from Midway to Ruby Creek is about  271 miles.

V. &  E, section of the Great Northern betAveen Abbotsford and ChiliiAvack has  evoked expressions of regret in this-  city, it being the hope of the citizens  that this fall would see the completion of the extension from NeAv West-!  minster to Chilliwack.

The farmers claim their  property is steadily advancing and  from $100 to $1000 an acre they consider none too much. The raihvay  officials reply that the coming of the  railway'has advanced the value of  property along the line and that the  company should not pay for values  the raihvay has created.  The Canadian Northern Raihvay  Company, Avhich is building through  the* same section of country is benefiting by the Great .Northern- shut-  doAvn, as they haye been able to secure most of the men Avho have been  discharged from the latter company's  works. ������������������*'������������������-���������  THE HAROLD NELSON COMPANY  From the laurels gained by an unprecedented run during the past year  at the Garrick Theatre, San Francisco  and the-Beck Theatre, at Bellingham,  Washington, Harold Nelson, Canada's  favorite dramatic artist and a company of excellent players will be seen  at. Eraser's Hall, Thursday evening,  August 25th.  Inasmuch as Mr. Nelson Avill only be  able to play one date on account of the  brevity of his present tour which is to  be folIoAved by a long return stock engagement at Bellingham, he has selected an excellent vehicle to display  his Avide versatility.  "Pierre of the Plains", is the title of  the presentation Avhich ha'snever been  put on outside- of the larger Eastern  cities at, the highest priced playhouses.  Sir Gilbert Parker, whose poAverful  novels have startled the Avorld is the  author of "Pierre and his People"  from Avhich Nelson gained his splendid  adaption.  It is modern in construction and  deals Avith settlers on the Border that  are graphically depicted Avithout being  exaggerated or overdraAvn.  The French-Canadian stands out  conspicuously throughout.  "Pierre" is a, "breed" Avith Avhom  the Avhites and French will have nothing to do and he is forced to exist in  loneliness.  At the start he is in love Avith "Jen"  Galbraith. the daughter of a road-  keeper.  He has not unfolded' his devotion  and she believing the stories told of  him as a wild irresponsible gambler  shuns him.  After a series of exciting events  embracing even a, tragedy, Jen learns  Pierre's true couragousnesses and all  ends amicably.  Miss Grace Johnson, tlie beautiful  young leading lady Avhose charms,  have served to enrapture audiences iu,  all tlie piincipal amusement places  under Nelson's guidance avi'11 be seen to  advantage.  In tlie role of "Jen" the comedy  lines Avhich are prolific of genuine and  hearty laughs will be handled jointly  by Mr. Nelson and Arthur Syndor, a  character artist of note and promise.

"If he had  come out   in   pronounced  opposition  and given reasons for his attitude, little f.iult could be found,   provided  the  reasons given  AA'ere sane and sincere ;  but the  antipathy   Avhich   manifests  itself in   "damning AA'ith faint praise"  and   the   doubts    he    expressed    on  grounds that could not be dignified as  reasons  but bore  more the semblance  of prejudice   Avere umvorthy  the man  and miAvorthyof the office. They Avere  clearly the utterances of a. man  avIio  had put his hand to the ploiv-and Avas  looking back and they struck the keynote for the smaller fry  to raise  the  old cry "gre; t is Diana of the Ephe-  sians."   When one considers that the  present  union    movement   emanated  hugely from the late Rev. Dr. Sutherland, a pillar  in the same great body  of Avhich Dr. Carman is iioav the head,  and that   the basis   of   union   agreed  upon by the joint committee appointed to arrive at such,   Avas largely  the  AA'ork of Dr. Sutherland, the greater  surprise and regret  must  be felt that  the Avet blanket is'noAV being applied  by Dr. Carman.    One of the so-called  reasons he gaA'e Avas  the difficulty of  rending old associations and the disposal of old assets and relics.   Among  some others   of   these  belongings  he  mentioned   the   book-room.     "What  Avould they do Avith   the  book-room?"  It is much   to  be  regretted that the  strong Dr. Carman  of a decade ago  should exhibit so little hope and  confidence as to AA'orry over insignificant  details at so  critical  a  moment and  endanger   the    consummation    of    a  movement    which    he admitted  avus  the   most   important    that hud   confronted   the   church    for  a   hundred  vi'ius.

But for that terrible layover at Oroville the train service and special rates'  given by the Great Northern for the  Hedley Labor Day celebration Avould  have been effective in bringing in a  large number of excursionists from  eastern points, but as it is and (especially in this case Avhero the layover involves being held over Sunday in Oroville) it is not at all likely"that many  will care to come from points east of  the Okanagan valley. Until the Oro  ville layover is cut out or>the regular  train schedule or a special train is run  through from the Boundary, any mere  cheapening of the rates from Nelson  and intermediate points is not likely  to prove very effective as a draAving  card for either the raihvay or the  toAvn to Avhich the so-called special  rate is given.

That it is illegal to shoot bear any-  Avhere in the province of British Columbia between July 15th and Sept. 1  and that it is unlaAvful to trap bear  south of the C.P.R. mainline at any  time AA'as the statement made yesterday bv J.

A large black bear a tew days ago  appeared during the night at a cabin  occupied by some men at Avork on the  Golden FaAvn Group of Mines at Sheep  creek. Evidently draAvn by the enticing odor of tlie miners' bacon and  beans bruin succeeded in forcing open  the door of the cabin with one of his  front paAA'.s, and. Avalking inside confronted the Iavo astonished and some-  Avhat scared occupants.  One ineffective shot at a distance of  about 15 feet, was taken at the intruder avIio succeeded in making a noisy  escape into the brush. Not content  Avith the unsatisfactory ending to his  first visit the hear again appeared on  tAvo successive nights, but got clean  UAvay each time.  The staff on the (iolden Fish Avish to  knoAV Avhat they should do in cases of  this kind. Should they set aside a  steaming hot dish of bacon and beans  for the refreshment of their somewhat  dangerous visitor, or should they break  the laAv by peppering him Avith a HO-'-SO?  ���������Nelson Ncavs,  ������.  ������  ������  What a few Acre of Keremeos Fruit Lands  will be worth in a few years when  the trees are in bearing  Can you do better with your savings b}r  sending them outside to invest in some speculative scheme, more or less hazardous, than by investing them at home in something that is as  safe as the bank and at tlie same time offers such  big returns on the capital invested.
