Office  at   HEDLEY,  B.-C  While the Similkameen exhibit sen't  out by the Fanners' Exchange, of Keremeos, V'is not fortunate enough' to  get a place on the prize list,' among so  many competitors, at the competition  whicli formed- a- part of the big con-"  yen'tion of the Northwest Fruit-growers' Association at Vancouver recently,  it is important to know,that it was nob  the. fruit so- much as* inexperience on  the part of the exhibitors,- who did not  make the selection of their fruit that  would .win the -greatest number of  points. The biggest apples of the tree  are not of necessity the best, and con-  noissers in that line look for other  qualities than bigness. Then again,  there is the'matter of packing aud displaying to the best advantage. It is  admitted that it was on these points  that the Similkameen exhibitors full  down. __  The Similkameen selection consisted  of eight boxes of apples. One from  Mrs. Lowe's orchard was the Bell-  flower; one from Mr. Barcello's, a Blue  Pearmain; one from C. A. McDonald's,  a Wagner; one fiom F. Riehter's, a  Baldwin ; and'.four from Mrs. Daly's,  comprising Bell-flower, Northern Spy,  Greening and Black Ben.  There wene some excellent boxes left  that mi account of name of variety  not being- known could not lie exhibited, one from Mr. Manery's being especially noticeable.  The estimates brought down at Ottawa have all the appearance of making this a pre-election session. As a  rule the session immediately preceding  a general election shows much greater appropriations for public works  throughout the country than any  other, but these are mostly done in the  supplementuries which are brought in  at the end of the session.  The estimates now brought down to  the house show.a total expenditure of  $119,237,091, or nearly ' $14,000,000  greater'than last.year. There, is a  marked increase of the percentage of  total' estimates going this year into  public buildings in' the various towns  and" cities.  Among the-towns whose appropriations for public buildings go to swell  the general list are, Cranbrook, Cumberland, Fernie, Ladysinith, Quesnel,  Vancouver, Vernon and Victoria.  The items whiclr interest Yale-Cariboo most are;  Vernon,  public buildings,  $5,000.   -  Salmon Arm, Shuswaplake, wharf,  $2,000.  'Thompson  River, removal of sand  and gravelbais, $8,000.

With four large, roomy plate  glass  windows  lo  give elbow room,  the artistic window-dresser was given  opportunity to spread, and in this case  some   artistic   effects   are   produced.  The two windows in the dry goods department are rendered captivating by  a particularly tasteful arrangement of  the goods.   One.  window  of this department is reserved for gents' furnishings,  but the "piece de resistance" i.s  the  window devoted .to ladies'fancy  wear,  in  which   those airy creations  that  delight   the   feminine   eye   are  grouped and displayed  with the most  artistic effect.     Collars,   belts,   hand'  satchels,  manicure sets,  mirrors &c,  were the articles nsed,   but the grouping and marshalling was wherein lay  the art,  and suggested feminine assistance or counsel.     The window in the  grocery department is calculated   to  awaken yearnings in the small boy, for  confectionery plays a prominent part.  A big bucket of chocolates on the side  illustrates literally and metaphorically  the meaning of the word "profusion."  The   cutlery   window    shares    with  that of   the   ladies'   department   the  honors for artistic grouping, all shades  from the severe steel gray of the scissors  and  carving sets  to  the bright  sheen of the silverware being blended.  At John ...Love's? drug and stationery  store, holiday goods have the call, and  it is principally to the display of these  that some efiective window-dressing  lias been employed. The body of the  store has also been made to take on a.  holiday appearance.  At R. G. Shier's a display of men's  furnishings is made. Fauey vests,  ties, collars, hats, handkerchiefs and  other articles to deck out the Beau  Brummels to the mashing point are  laid out in tempting fashion.  H-  Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Richter, of Osoyoos  Pass, were in town on Monday.  J. S. Meyers, -U. S. customs officer  at Chopaka, was in town on Tuesday.  A carload of ore is to be shipped  shortly from* the Dophin."  The telephone system is now connected with the V. V..& E. station.  Mr. L. A. Clark, of Green Mountain  is in town.  ��������� Thos. Harkness leaves heie to-day  for Carberry, Man. He will return in  the spring,  Mr. Mattice sr. has had many callers  since he broke his leg. His ..'wife -will  be here- this week.  Joseph Armstrong closed down the  work'on the big ditch for two months,  and he will spend his Christmas at the  coast.  When whiskey has full possession  of a man he will box-the compass in  his conduct and go the limit. It is  almost useless to attempt to check  him.  Monday night, Dec. 23rd is reserved  by Santa Clans for all the children and  their friends in the Similkameen district. A good entertainment in the  school house is anticipated.  Two carloads of -horses arrived on  Sunday and Monday for work on the  V. V. & E. The steam shovel will be  added to the force of construction at  once.  A meeting of the Fruit Growers'  Exchange will be held in the office of  the Keremeos Land Co. on Saturday,  December 21st, at 2 p. m., for election  of officers, annual reports, &c.  The manufacturers failed to send to  D. J. Innis with the scales a blue print  and the scales could not be   put in  filnce without it.     The print is now to  mud and the stone foundation for the  scales will be finished to-day.  Lulu Kirhy and M. Barcello jr. left  here on Sunday night 7th inst. and  were married'in the state of Washington. Mrs. Barcello wrote to friends  from Spokane. Many friends here  wish them all that is good in the^state  of matrimony.  The Rev. Mr. Cameron returned  from Fairview on Monday. He says  that the sleighing is fairly good from  Fairview to within two miles of the  big hill northwest of the Indian reservation and that there is no snow on  the road from the reserve to Keremeos  Mrs. Coleman, with, her daughter,  Mrs. Cavers, returned from Rossland  last week. Mrs. Cavers will enjoy the  summer atmosphere of the Similkameen for a few weeks. Master Coleman was successful in passing his examination and will be home from the  coast on Saturday.  Keremeos, B. C, Dec. 17th, 1907.  (Loomis Prospector.)  H. Stevenson, who has done so much  with the Dolphin group of claims at  Olalla, B. C, that an  erstwhile prospect looks like a mine of great value,  put in a day or tw,o among his friends  in Loomis during the past week.- He  has just wound up a tour that carried  him to many of the supposedly solid  financial centres of the land on a mission for money."  He landed some, but  he declares the struggle to have been  as exciting as trying to land a whale  with a hand line.   People are adhering to ready cash like tangle-foot to a  fly's pedals, and no matter what gilt-^  edged song.and dance one- gives them,  as to swift- and monstrous returns on a  small investment, they .are dead set in  the belief that a "dollar iri  the pocket  is worth fifty in the hereafter.  Stevey,  we believe, could  sweat money out of  a miser,  if he started in to do it,  but.  he says if anyone thinks it is a spasm  of sport to raise funds just now on any  kind of proposition, even a gold brick,  he is suffering from pressure on the  brain.   He. has tried it,  and is wise.  Mr. Stevenson expects to keep  things  moving at the mine this whiter, possibly not as swiftly- as he hoped.   The  owners are displaying the proper spirit by doing their share in easing the  situation by making concessions, which  they can well afford to do considering  the   uncertainties   that seem  to surround   things   terrestrial,   especially  those things that have the slightest  bearing upon the monetary question  LICENCES FOR NEXT YEAR  List of Those Who Are Authorized  Sell .Intoxicants in 1908.  to  FAIRVIEW NOTES.  The latest telephone message from  Santa Clans gives notice that he will  not be at Fair-view before Friday night  Dec 27th.  Mrs. McArthur, nee Malone, is visiting with her parents -at their ranch.  She will return to Winnipegoosis, Man:  early in January,  Mr. French of Shatfords Limited,  sperit'the week here and returned to  Hedley, on Saturday.  9 On Wednesday Dec. llthMr. Elliott  left us to spend a few months with  his daughter in Texas. "  King Kennedy and his assistant,  Clifford Lucas went from here to Oroville.  Freighters are now holding down  the road between Keremeos and .Fair-  view.  R, Innis, S. Breedenand A. C. Both-  well of Keremeos registered at the  Golden Gate Hotel on Saturday.  Jack McKenzie, Osoyoos, Robert  Johnston, \Bridesville, and G. H.  Sproule, of, Hedley, all hailing from  the land of the Mayflower, are in town  to-day,  Mr. Patton closed his office here and  is now on his ranch at Myers Flat.  Mi-s. Kellar with her son and two of  her grand children enjoyed a sleigh  ride from Myers Flat to Fairview on  Saturday.  The interest in the Sunday afternoon  services held here by Mr. McGillivary  is encouraging. Service Dec. 22nd at  2; 30 p. 111.  A heavy fall of snow on the mountain east of Fairview prevented Win.  Dalrymple from visiting the mica  croppings a second time. In the spring  there will be a trail to the place.  E. M. Cud worth of Sidley arrived  hero on Sunday to attend the December meeting of the Board of Licence-  Commissioners, The Board meets today at the office of Gold Commissioner  Brown.  Messi-s Carmichael, Campbell, Bromley and Ira Dalrymple came up from  Kruger Mountain last week. The  Dominion Fairview Copper Co. will  likely have a camp built, and they  will then continue the development  work at the mine.  The King Kennedy Panoramic exhibition was given here in the Golden  Gate Hall on Saturday night'to an interested audience. Every home in  Fairview was represented, and there  was good support from the Stem-  winder camp.  The regular or semi-annual meeting  of the Boards of Licence Commissioners, under the Liquor Licence Act,  were held on Monday, Dec. 10th.  A notable feature of this meeting is  that it is likely to be the last meeting  of commissioners held under the Liquor Licence Act of 1900, it being currently reported that that act will be  repealed at the coining session of the  provincial legislature, and the whole  machinery of the' liquor traffic udrnin-  istei ed- by ii special' department of the  government at the head of which will-  bs Superintendent Hussey of the provincial police..  '   -;    ,  ���������The present Act was first brought in  by Joe Martin- in 1899,  he  being then  Attorney-general of the Seinlin-Cotton   .  admihi.stiatio'n.   In Apiil, 1900, it was  found to be ultra vires, and from April  to August of that year   the   unique  spectacle' was witnessed of the traffic  running itself during the inter-regnum.  Those who had been granted licences.  did not apply foroiebate,   but went on  selling, and it did not appear that any  others ventured to set up shibecus and  sell without any authority.    The first  act of the new' Dunsmuir government  was to alter the Martin bill to conform  to the requirements of the Federal authorities and the act then put through  was known as the Liquor Licence Act  of 1900,  under which  the traffic has  been   administered   during   the   past  seven years.   As an act it had its good  points and also its weak ones; although  the main weakness could not be cluirg-   .  ed up against the act but against the  commissioners and licence inspectors  who failed to do their duty under it.  . Until   details   are   known   of   the  scheme which is to take its place, no  criticism of it is in order nor comparisons to be instituted.     That will come  later on when an opportunity is afforded of judging" it fairly on its merits  and the results which it may produce,  duly weighed to see. whet her they  be  good or bad.

THE LABOR  SITUATION  FOSTER'S WEATHER BULLETIN  The labor situation is believed to  have 'unproved somewhat during the  past week and .some who a week ago  had given up hope of any agreement  being arrived at by which work would  continue, have been enco.iraged  by news from the Boundary where  ' there is now said to.be a .possibility  of miners and mine-owners getting  together.  While that contingency is generally  regarded-'as the first step towards  clearing up the situation for Hedley,  it does not, to our mind, necessarily  follow that an adverse vote in the  Boundary unions is to be taken as a signal for stopping all wheels in Hedley.  ' Failing ��������� a favorable vote there for  continuance on the same basis as Ross-,  land; there is still the chance (audit  should be a good one) that Hedley  miners will work out their own problem in their'own interests. They have  been assured that it in not so much  the Rossland scale, that the Boundary  miners object to or complain of, but  of the manner ��������� in which Boundary  mine-owners- ignored them and also  took advantage of them in shutting  down without notice or consultation.  Now in Hedley the miners have; not  been treated that way. They have  had work and the high wage scale all  through November and all .December,  and they are the only ones in this  province or any of the adjoining  states- that have had it. These circumstances if duly weighed by the  men should dispose them to a-.policy  of give and take and aid materially  in .affeeling nn amicable settlement,  .seeing that the management here  (both general manager and .superintendents) bavi- always shown a, disposition to doal squarely with them  and in this matter have already gone  more than half-way to meet them.  Failing both contingencies already  mentioned there may be a third slight  ray of hope for possible continuance  of work in Camp Hedley, even with  the Boundary all shut down tight for  a lengthened period. ' That hope arises  from the. impression that Mr. Ross  has carte blanche to decide one way  or the other, while in Boundary's case  it was from New York that the fiat  went forth swift and inexorable to  shutdown tight. Mr. Ross being on  the ground and understanding the  whole situation knows the widespread distress that must follow a  shut-down here, for not Hedley alone When writing Advertisers,  but the entire  valley ..wquld feel,,,the. J: ,     .,,.,,,. Mention the Gazette  Warn; wave will cross Pacific slope  about 14, great cential valleys 115,  eastern states 18. Cool wave will  cross Pacific slope about 17, great central valleys 19, eastern states 21.  This disturbance will not bring as  hifrh temperatiucs as the preceding  disturbance did but the cool wave following it will go to much lower'temperatures than the cool wave pieced-  ing, therefore you may prepare for a  biting cold wave that will cross meridian 90 not far from Dec. 19. About  that time the cold will be. sufficiently  severe in sections to form at least four  inches of ice and this will raise a query  with ice packers whether to attempt  .harvesting ice or wait till later. That  query- illustrates the value of good,  long range forecasts. Prepare for real  winter and severe-weather the last  half of December. ��������� ���������  Jupiter will control our weather-  during the thirteen days of which  December 23 will be central During  the long evenings of Dec. 22 23 and'24  if you will "observe the moon you will  see it pass within one degree of Jupiter  and you may charge to the effects of,  the conjunction of these two bodies all  cold and storms and snows and cold  rains that will occur about that time.  : Saturn ��������� nay be seen in the .west .in  the. early evening, but,'is' not conspi-;  eupus. .Her ringsare edgewise toward  the earth and cannot how be seen.  Her rings probably lie in the plane of  her equator and therefore she is near  her equinox. I do not ascribe so much  importance to the equinoxes as do.  other planetary meteorologists. The  equinoxes alone do not count for much  but when combined with other features of planetary influence they have  some effect. Our solar system is a. perfect piece of machinery and every  body of that svstem is connected, magnetically with every body as much as  every wheel of a great printing press  is connected with every other wheel of  it.

Manery of the lower Similkameen was in town last Aveek Mr. Manery tells of the accommodation which  ranchers in the lower Similkameen receive from the V. V. & E. train crew,  who he says are the most obliging lot  of chaps he ever met in that business.  The time schedule between Oroville  and Keremeos gives them lots of margin, and if a rancher Avants a lilt all  he has to do is to hail the train at a  crossing or in a field and they will  stop and take him on. About the only  thing they'draw the line at is being  stopped to ask the engineer for a chew  of tobacco.  The days have done all the shortening up in the evenings that they are  going to do, In fact they have already  begun to lengthen out at that- end of  the day, as the sun now (Dec. lflth),  sets one minute later in the evening  than it did ten days ago. The shortening up process will, however, go on in  the mornings until five minutes more  of daylight-have been cut off, and that  will not be accomplished until Friday,  December 27th (the anniversary of St.  Sohn the evangelist) and it Avill take  until Jan. 5th 1908 before a minute has  been gained in the morning although  by that time the days will have lengthened out in the evening 14 minutes.  These calculations are for Winnipeg,  where the latitude and longtitude correspond more closely with our own  , than ..those, of Toronto or Quebec.    --r:Z.

CORRESPONDENCE.  Keremeos, Dec. 12, 1907.  To the Editor of the Gajskttk,  Hedley,���������  Sir : At this time when the Keremeos .mind is 'more, or less agitated  about the great question of a bridge  across the Similkameen river, an ex-  rac-ssion of opinion from one avIio is  somewhat interested, may not be out  of place, the more especially as our  public meeting did not materialize.  Public'opinion "seems, to be about  equally divided among three possible  sites for. the proposed bridge, which  Ave mav designate the ferry site, the  lane site and the town site. Permit  me, Mr. Editor, for the sake of argu-  menl, to suggest a fourth, namely : a  point from thiec-quartcrs of a mile to  three miles down the river beloAV the  new townsite. What! away down  the river! Why, yes. 'But-that is  absiud ! lidiculous ! Seems like it,  does it not?. '.But-'let ut? think a moment. "'��������� Is it any more absurd that the  people to come on the Webster estate  should go. three '"miles doAvn the river  for a crossing, than that the doAvn-  .river people should go three miles up  to the old ferry site,or three-quarters  of a mile up to. the land site?  Let us see just what these distances  mean when they have to be travelled  continuously.  If the bridge is at the lane, and the  rancher from the south wishes to go to  town and back again the same way, he  must travel that extra three-quaiters  of a'mile just four times per trip,  which makes three utterly useless  miles of a tax upon his time, implements', and horses.  If the bridge is at the ferry, the useless distance travelled will be not less  than ten or twelve miles.  Suppose a rancher even on the Webster estate below the townsite wishes  to send his children to the Keremeos  school. Have those unfortunate little  ones to tramp or ride from three to  twelve miles out of their way'every'  day for five days in the week, and two  hundred odd days in'the year?  In the event of an urgent call in case  Of sickness, that extra distance might  mean the difference between life and  death.  Plainly, the only reasonable location  for the bridge is neither up river nor  down river, but as nearly as possi-  .   1JLE OPPOSITE TO THE TOAVNSITE.  But Ave are told that there are many  reasons against this. We are told that  certain private interests are urgently  concerned; that the expense Avould be  too great; that there are not adequate  banks to the river at that point.  The first named reason may be  speedily disposed of. If differences of  opinion exist among our local magnates, which we do not assume to be  true, should the whole 'down-river,  south bank travelling public be penalized in order to smooth the ruffled  feelings or add to the Aveight of the  plethoric weasel-skin ?  The question oftexpense is more serious, but a mere matter of a little extra initial expense should not decide,  the matter. In our private businesses,  if we have not sufficient money for.  our contemplated improvements, they  must wait till we have, and the rule is  just as applicable to our public expenditures.  As to the river banks, I am convinced that they are much better for making a crossing than those where the  railroad bridge crosses at Armstrong's,  and any doubters can do no better  perhaps than see for themselves and  be convinced.  In conclusion, Mr. Editor, let me  .state that I hold no brief, in this matter, from any corporation or creed,  person or party.  The proposed- bridge is a great public  work, and will likely be standing long  after we who build it are removed  from our present sphere of operations ;  therefore let us hope that it will be so  placed that present and succeeding  generations may not rise up and call  us cursed.  Yours truly,  Doavn-river Rancher.
