Several weeks ago there were rumors  to the effect that Judge W. H. P.  Clement of Grand Forks either had  received or was to receive I he appointment to the bench of the Supreme  Court of this province, to fill the.  vacancy caused by the appointment of  Mr. Justice Duff to the Supreme-  Court of Camilla. An Ottawa dispatch  to coast papers under date of December 5th, however, conveys the news  that the appointment had been made,  and Judge Clement is receiving the  congratulations of his friends in the  Boundary, and elsewhere through the  county of Yale, upon the honor conferred on him.  It appears to be a new departure for  such an appointment to be made in  this province, the course generally  pursued being to elevate some prominent member of the bar. Heretofore  a county judge was considered out of  the running, and Judge Clement, who  held a county judgeship only about a  year, is the first county judge in the  province to receive such an appointment.

There was  no wind and the light was good, which  n<> doubt conlribnlul in ;\ gL-eat measure to the improvement.  To correct a misappiehension which  seems to exist, that the scoring made  in these Hedley shoots is ridiculously  Tow;., in comparison with .the shooting  elsewhere, the Gazette wishes it to he  remembered that in. Hedley only five  shots are .allowed., on .. score, at each  range,  while in matches on  the outside   seven shots aro allowed.    This  means that while 105 is the possible in  the seven shot matches, the possible  in the five shot matches is only 75.  In the -seven shot^matches-SA is only  aii av;erage of iniiers,.~or.nine points  lnoi-e the possible, ina five .sliot'inatch.'-  A^riy niari-wlioi-ma.'kcjs^^OPliu'the Hedley;  shoots, in reality doe's better than the  one who imikes Si where the p()ssible  is-105, for if anything should go wrimg'  iii the fore part of .the score tiii-re is  niore chance to pull out after the error  is; .'correctedi'..where   seven   shots   are'!  fired.  -Pleaseibbar this.in mind befor.e;  nniking odious cbjiipiivisons. ,  In this last shoof.it will be observed  that'-the.lowest tieore is 50^. which is''  five.-points "better than -aii average, of-  magpies"''or equal to 70, in iVseveh shot  match. ...Frmmthe regnliii-ity in which:  ..pne.of, the. coinpeti tors. ivjjs.t.m;ning.iip  the.

Albert Whvte icturnoil last  night from a holiday trip to the Keremeos country.- He went in via Spokane, and thence on the V. V. &; E. to  Molson, almost fourteen miles east of  Oro. From Molson he drove a distance of forty-six miles to Keremeos.  Col. Whyte, when asked about the  prospects of the Keremeos country,  said he believed the wildest prophesies  would eventually he the nearest. He  did not like to express his real opinion  or state what he saw without photographs to substanti'te what he said,  as the truth sounded impossible and  exaggerated.  He came west twenty-four years ago  from Philadelphia in the interests of  Scottish immigration, and in that capacity he visited many parts of Washington State, among others North  Yakima. In those days the whole  valley could have been bought for  $1.50 to $2.00 per acre. To-day that  land sells for as high'as $1800. "And,"  he went on to say, " the Keremeos  Valley has a-number of advantages  not possessed by Yakima. When I  say that Keremeos will excel any  other district in British Columbia, I  don't think 1 overstate.it. It is hem-  med in on all sides with high mountains   which reflect the sun into it,  i    ' '  making it a piece, of .California transplanted to British Columbia.    -     1  "When yon put water on. the soil of  the Similkameen it acts like magic. All  sorts  of semi-tr'opical -fruits  do well  there.   I never saw finer almonds than  those  grown, on'   the  Richter ranch.  They sire very thin ,uvthe shell and of,  a fine, delicate flavor.   The trees are  covered with beautiful dark green fol-:  iage and are still in full leaf; : Peaches  are the largest and best flavored in  that valley.   The melons,, both,\yater  and Cantaloupes, are a.marvellous success, When t.saw one cucumber patch  there I cOuld not believe they were, all  growing'; oir that ground till I picked  them op and found they Were, still at-'  tached- to .the,,.vines.

Now Runs Tri-Weekly Between Molson  and Hedley.  Direct communication with the Gt.  Northern has been re-established by  Royer's stage running through to  Hedley direct from Molson.  Royer has now moved his headquarters from Midway to Molson, and  from that point runs daily stage to  Oroville, with tri-weekiy trips from  Oroville to Hedley.  The trip from Oroville to Hedley is  made in one day, reaching here on  Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings, returning to Oiovillu the following day. This, with Welby's Penticton  stage line, e-ives Hedley daily connection with Kereinccs.  When it i.s known that by thi.-. stage  passengers can leave Spokane on Sunday morning and lie in Hedley on  Monday night, and that this same feat  could be accomplished over a year ago  by Royer's flyer when the Gt. Northern tiains were no neaier than  Phoenix, it will be more readily appreciated the difficult task that Royer  was then performing. By the trains  now running to Molson no faster time  is made, Jnit the trip is much less  strenuous,-as the all-night ride on the  stage is now cut out.  ARRANGING THE MATCH.  Executive Makes Arrangement, For the  Xmas Day Shoot.  The executive of the Rifle Association met on Monday night and arranged for the next match, to be held on  Christmas day, at winch.the Chechakho Cup donated.by Duncan Ross, M.P.,  will be contested.   They also'iirranged  the terms of the handicap, and did so  in a.'manner that seems unquestionably fair and just.   The plan adopted  was to calculate the average score1 of  .eachman from the scores made at the  matches which have already been shot.  The highest average was that of 56; by.  Mr.  Rolls, who was placed as scratch  man':'  All whose average fell  below  that sue to be. bonused the number of  points necessary to bring them up to  ,56.   This will give, the poorest shot an  equal chance to win the c-\\p against  the best shot, and "will'make a most  interesting contest.    It. is;;hoped that  ���������no-mem\>ev Ot'.the association- will fail  to compete.,, if for no other reason than  as a mark of respect,to the donor;" and'  appreciation   shown   for the. trophy.

Recently  the railway commission's engineer inspected the entire line, and expressed  himself as .satisfied with its construction. Formal notice of official approval  is   expected   at  any   time   therefore.  Although the road is  acceptable   to  the government, and could be opened  as soon as formal permission iss granted,  it  is   not   likely   that   passenger  traffic will be commenced till the beginning of next year owing to the desire to complete a number of buildings  for the accommodation  of  the operating department.     Several of these  buildings will be erected in Nicola.  these market possibilities, the V.

The arrangeiiiei.its for same had progressed to a  point   that  indicated an  expenditure of $115, which would have  put the finances  in a precarious condition,  but these arrangements were  revised so as  to put the affair on a  much simpler basis.  Some suggestions were thrown out  as to desirability of some arrangement  by which the Board of Trade might be  revived and united action of the citi-  /.eus secured.

The Cobalt mining field  hassufficiently demonstrated its worth  to be able, to  ignore such  a  performance as that witnessed in  New  York  when a rumor' to  the effect that the  Guggenheinis who  had  taken an option on a large block of stock  in  the  Nipissing property had decided  not to  exercise their option, but to  lose the.  large sum that they had already paid  on it.  The reason alleged for the back-  out was that they  had  discovered a  flaw in the title to the property, and  that the trouble was to come from the  Ontario government who were said to  be disposed to repudiate the  title of  the original  owners.      In  New  Yn^k  the   Nipissing  stock   slumped    from  twenty to   something   below   sixteen  dollars per share,'   \yhich, came  as   a  surprise  to 'Toronto!   holders   of   the  f*t*������ek.   The ministers of the Ontario  government were at once, wen concerning the title difficulty and they expressed  their  complete ignorance, of  any thought or intention of questioning the legality of the Nipissing title.  Toronto men. then wired their brokers!  111 New York to take any and all of the  stock which they  buy. below  twenty.  Where a ce.mp springs suddenly into  prominence   because   of   phenomenal  success of some of its mines,  it seems  in-possible to compel  the. sharks  and  gamblers of the New  York stock exchange to keep  their hands  off; and.  once these ha:pies get a hold, no matter how small the   interest,  then farewell to honest values  based on rate, of  production or ore in sight, for some  one of two things  is bound to happen.  Either infiatioi. of values will tollow,  or the wheels of progress will be stopped to further the  ends of stock jobbing, and every kind of lying and deceit will be employed to secure, their  ends.    All that can be learned of the  recent Cobalt stock  flurry from  the  meagre details at hand, makes it difficult to pick out gjvuns of truth from  the web of falsehood that appears to  have been woven about" the incident,  but from  the flat denials that have  The..Princeton Star last week .devotes a paragraph'to L.

Pickard, being due in  Hedley for the Association shoot on  Christmas Day, has a problem on his  hands to attend the Fairview match,  and get his rifle freighted over to Hed-.  ley in time for the shoot here.  No more deer-hunting after Saturday next, as the open season units on  that day.

Whether it be by Indians  or whites every infraction of the game  laws should be severely punished.  .Pratt who drives Rover's stage on  the Hedley-Oroville run' says that the  track-laying and ballasting gangs are  again at work. . A trestle a short distance on the other side of Oroville has  been keeping the track from getting  into Oroville. but it was expected that  the steel woiild be laid oyer this portion bv Saturday of this week.  Nothing has yet been aniionnced.as  to when a. traiiV service to Oroville  will be started, but as the portion between provide and Molson will be the  most .difficult to operate owing: to the  existence in it of a pusher grade, it. is  hot likely that they will be in any  hurry about: starting, and may- be sir't-  isfied with keeping Molson as the terminus for a" while longer."  On Friday evening last a party of  young people took a sleigh .ride out to  Broinley's and pronounced the sleigh-'  ing all-right 'from Bromleys to within  about three miles' of Hedley, where it  became a trifle thin, causing numerous  bumps'on the stones, and occasional  nerve-destroying screeches of protest  from the steel shoes while passing oyer  the stones. , At Bromley's they were  right '-'royally entertained, and came  home bragging of the good time they  had.  A break occurred in the flume on  Friday evening last, but as the repair,  gang were close at hand to turn off  the water and repair the break, it was  only a matter of a couple of hours un-  till .everything, was going all right  again. When the break was reported  to the office it was not known what  the extent of the damage was, or how;  long the water would be off, so word  was sent over town by the manager,  who asked that it be passed around'  among users of the town water to give  them a chance to fill up their buckets  lief ore the water run out.
