The arrival of a large force of C.P.R.  men at Okanagan, Landing, where  work has commenced in the construction of a..now large steamer and two  largo barges, is evidence that in the  race for completion of the link between  Midway and tlie coast the C. P. R. do-  not intend to work at any disadvantage. In the east they aie constantly  laying down supplies' at Midway and  completing the -purchase of- right-of-  way between'the Kettle River and the  Okanagan. A few days ago they  closed a bargain with Davey McBride  on Anarchist Mountain for right-of-  way through his ranch, and most of the  right-of-way has now been adjusted.  In the west the grades are nearing  Nicola and the steel being laid from  Spence's Bridge.  But the entire significance  of this-  move at Okanagan Landing will not  be knowiifor a month or .two.    The  new steamer to take the place of the  Aberdeen ��������� on  Okanagan Lake  is explained  us   the' initial  step towards  establishing a daily service down the  lake, but the barges are  to be  of the  same size and build as those used by-  the Company on the Arrow Lakes and  elsewhere' for  transporting .trains.-  A railway slip is also to be put in at  Okanagan Landing to permit running  the trains on to the barges,and carrying them down the lake to Penticton.  That cars will be taken down the lake  to, Penticton   to   unload them there  and   send them back   on  the   barge  empty is not at all   probable.     Tlie  more likely   course will be to-build  down the valley from Penticton to the  point where the main line from 'Midway  to Spence's Bridge is met,  and  deliver material  to  the   construction  gangs by the carload.  "   All the-Great Northern's steel which  will cover the route between Midway  and the Hope Mountains must be laid  from the one end at Midway.     The  C. P. R., on the other hand,  are enabled, if they choose, to have no less  than   four   different,   steel-gangs   to  cover the same portion, viz.: one working westward from Midway, one eastward from Spence's Bridge, ��������� and two  from Penticton- going east and west to  meet the gangs from either end.

At present there is a dispute between the Provincial Government and  the New York financiers as to whether  the subsidy for the first suction has.  been earned, and the matter will be  referred to the courts to decide. In  the past the Government have been  most indulgent; giving' the holders of  the charter extension after extension,  but now it has become a matter of  straight interpretation of the act itself  ���������as to what shall constitute the earning  of the subsidy.  Robt. Wood, of Greenwood, was  father of the scheme, and, while some  serious mistakes in connection with it  may be credited to him, he has always  meant well by the West Fork and  stands to either gain or lose according  as the scheme prospers, or meets with  failure. At every session of the Legislature lie is found in the House for  some piece of special legislation to  help it on.  The Colonist, in an interview with  Mr. Woods, has the following :  "Speaking of the development of  the AVest Fork country, through which  the proposed Midway & Vernon railway is to be constructed, Mr. Wood  said that there.were several very promising camps and already a few  shipping ' mines. He instanced the  Sally, a high-grade silver proposition,  which has already sent Out to- the  Trail smelter some 13 carloads of ore  that never averaged less than $100 to  a.ton net, and sometimes the returns  went as high as $150. This 'property  was on Wallace'mountain.' Another  rich, producer is the Rambler. It is  owned principally in Greenwood, in  which also F. J. Finucaue, one-time  manager of the Greenwood branch of  the Bank of Montreal and now financial adviser of Spokane's millionaire,  Charles Sweeny, is also a shareholder.  This property is under active development and is shipping. Five miles  above these two mines is the Carmi.  The property has for quite a period  been shut down, but now the owners  are installing additional stamps so as  to bring the original experimental  mill up to a 10-stamp capacity. It is  to be opened up at once. In the Boomerang camp, which lies about ten miles  north of the junction of the West Fork  with the main Kettle river, are also  several promising prospects only  awaiting the advent of a railway to be  further developed to the shipping  stage. Altogether, the West Fork  country, in Mr. Woodjs opinion, contains many excellent properties only  awaiting capital and transportation to  put them on a shipping and dividend  paying basis."   ������.   PROVINCIAL  LEGISLATURE  Work Of Session  Advancing  Smoothly  MANY;MEANINGLESS OUEHIES  From The Opposition Who Are Trying  Hard To Make Some Show of Fight  With Spiked Guns���������Amendments To  Various Acts.  ( Ki'om Our Special Correspondent)*  Routine work, and little of interest  at that, was the order of the day in  the House this "afternoon, and legislation in various matters was considerably advanced. While the absence of  contentiousness may make the labors  of parliament* appear intolerably  tedious to an' Onlooker, there is no  doubt that it is a great aid to the  prompt despatch of business.  The Attorney - General introduced  '"An Act to consolidate and amend  the 'Municipal Clauses Act' and amending Acts," which passed its first reading.   '  Drury, Victoria City, had given  notice for a motion that an order be  granted for a return showing number  of timber leases granted during 1905  on Vancouver Island, with names of  lessees, area leased, and amount of  bonus paid. - -   '  Dr. King, Cranbrook, moved this  motion, as Drury was not in ' the  House. And thereby hangs a tale.  Mr. Drury, like'the member for Delta,  has so keen a nose for scandal that he  can smell it when it is non-existent.���������  as he proved beautifully in the ridiculous fiasco of the Alberni election protest. It-would appear that he had  smelt, or thought he smelt a scandal  ���������in'-Vancouver-' Island,-timber, and he-  hurriedly gave notice of his resolution..  Rainfall for week. .02 inches.  The Daly Reduction Co. have placed  a fine new Ainsworth balance in their  assay office, which is a particularly  fine, piece of mechanism, acting quickly and accurately.    The beam is grad  uated to l-100th of a milligramme, and  as the point of rest for the needle, as  well as the beam itself, is fitted with  strong magnifying glasses, enabling  the skilled operator to manipulate the  riders for finer divisions even than  this, to any of which the balance will  respond, it may be seen what exceedingly accurate work it is capable of  ^���������#&������&#a&$&9&3&&������S&&&9&9&(   doing.  When the Gazette was getting the  temperatures   for  the  meteorological  column this week, inquiries were made  of Mr. Brule as to prevailing temperatures during the months  of January  and  February of last year,   and   on  looking up last year's records he found  that the coldest spell of the Winter of  1905 was during the first ten days of  February,    the   record   showing   the  lowest to lie 10 below on the morning  of   the  10th,  and after  two days  of  more moderate weather the mercury  again began to fall and kept coquetting  around the zero mark until the  17th.  After that the winter didn't amount  to much and the minimum readings  were   for  the  most  part around the  freezing point only.    The present long  continued mild spell has played beautifully into the hands of the Daly Reduction Co   in helping out the power  difficulty, and here we are on the. 1st  of February with the whole -10 stamps  pounding away, to the complete satisfaction not only of  the management  but of t"ic wi'.'-.e community.  Then he sat down and began" to look  up names. And it was because of the  names he found, and not because of  any scandal, that Mr. Drurv did not  appear in the House to-day to move  his own resolution. He came afterwards. The order, by the way, was  granted without hesitation.. There  was no earthly reason why it should  not be. But everybody is wondering  what Mr. Drury found.  Bowser, Vancouver.' asked if the  Government had any correspondence  since they took office with the authorities at Ottawa in relation to the  granting of a lease of Stanley Park at  Vancouver. Answered in the affirmative.  Murphy, Cariboo, wanted to know  if Mr. J. P. Babcock is in the employ  of the Government. Replied to in the  affirmative. Murphy asked about a  dozen questions on this. The Government's sources of information were as  open to him as to them, and there was  no earthly need of his wasting the  time of the House, but the incident is  given as a sample of what some of the  opposition consider a statesmanlike  way of doing business.  The Finance Minister moved that  tho House he asked to grant supply to  His Majesty on Wednesday next.  Passed, though it is hardly likely to  be. ready by that time,  The Attorney - General's bill to  amend the,General Trusts Corporation  Act, 1905, passed its third reading.  The   Attorney - General's   bill    to  amend the Small Debts Act passed its  second reading.  The adjourned debate on the second  This most unkind cut at-John,  Oliver's abortive attempt to discover a  Kaieu Islandjscandal was received with  roars of laughter on both sides of the  House. Fortunately the member for  Delta was out at the time. He does  nob like being laughed at.  The Atlin   County Court Bill was  read a third time and passed.       '  The Act to amend the Small  Debts  Act-was leported complete in committee without amendment.  ��������� In moving the second reading of the  Act to amend the Assessment A ct, 1903.  Finance Minister Tatlow  refeired to  the fact that the Act as brought in the  session  before last was   a. long one.  Some amendments had been made to  it last ^session,    but    experience had  shown ��������� the   advisability    of   further  changes.   The purpose of the  present  amending Act was to make clear tlie .  meaning of one or two sections of that'  riieasure, and to obviate the possibility  of misconstruction pf its,inteiiUoiisIn.  other sections.    There was nothing hi'  it to raise the taxes in any way; in fact  it was as proposed decidedly in favor  of the taxpayer, one  of its   principal  provisions   being  that,    where lands  ,revert to the Crown for taxes, the taxpayer shall have a longer time  to redeem his land.  The second section of the proposed  'Act, continued the Finance Minister,  which dealt with' real property taxation was in order to define more clearly to what pel-sons the lower rates of  taxation shall upply. The intention  of the original clause had been to help  the poorer landholders by a low rate  of taxation on property not exceeding  $2,000 in value, but it has been found  in some cases that people possessed  two tracts of land in the same district,  both under $2,000, vet together aggregating nearly $4,000 and that these  persons had taken advantage of the  lower rate, while owners of land at  $2,500 or $3,000 had to pay:the higher  rate. This the new'clause would re-,  medy bv' taxing" a- man's aggregate  holdings in one district.  That the frightful loss of life in the  wreck of the Valencia on the west  coast of Vancouver Island had profoundly impressed the members of  the Legislature was evident this afternoon, when, on the House meeting,  Mr. Manson moved, - Oliver seconding,  a strong resolution to the Dominion  Government asking for the establishment of life-saving stations on this dangerous coast-line. Messrs. McBride  and Hawthornthwait made strong  speeches in support of the resolution.  which carried unanimously.  On report of the Bill to amend the  Small Debts Act, Parker .Williams,  Newcastle, moved an amendment to  exempt from garnishee wages of workmen not exceeding $100   monthly.  FAIRVIEW  NOTES.

Fortunately the whole situation  is now placed before the public,  stripped of till unnecressary ver-  Appiication is being made to  the Provincial Legislature for a  charter to build a railway from  Penticton  to the  international  boundary below Osoyoos.    The  powers being asked are comprehensive, and the road pro"  appears "to  be  the  very  that .'the   Lower   Okanagan  wants.   The capabilities .of the  soil of the Okanagan Valley are  now so well known that such a  road might almost be said to be  an immediate necessity, andv in  less than'ten years' time'should  possess a volume of locaL business equal to that of any like  piece* of road in  the province.  (While the Southern Okanagan  will   benefit   more  or   less,-in  common with other portions of  the district, from the ���������construction  of the two great lines';of  railway that ai-e in progress of  building, the route of neither is  such as to meet all the wants of  that   valley   unless ��������� the Great  Northern construct at once the  branch line to Penticton which,  it has   been   generally   understood,  they contemplate building.   As for the C. P.

Possibly  if  they  had had Mr.  Shatford's  experience of twelve years waiting in  vain for a railway, and had the  data from the Great  Northern  of which it appears that he. find  he alone, was in possession, they  would have seen   things  as  he  .saw them.

The item with  reference to alleged retirement  of L. W. Shatford. M. P. P., was  clearly  a yarn   made  out  of  Avhole cloth,  and evidently  for  a purpose.    There is no  probability, whatever,  of Mr.  Shatford retiring, but Avith the  coi*-  respondent the wish  may haAre  been father to the thought. Mr.  Shatford was  the  coiiserA^itiA>'e  standard-bearer    at    the    last  election,    and    his     course in  the House has  been so   manifestly in the interest of his constituents  that hot only his own  party but many \Arho  opposed  him. last time, will show their  appreciation of the sturdy independence Avhich he displayed by  supporting   him next election.  There are no rivalries nor jarring elements in the conservative party in this riding, and no  one  is either  looking  for  or  thinking  of any   other   candidate.     The  Similkameen    conservatives do not want any hidebound partisan for their representative      and     consequently  they haye no fault to find  Avith  with Mr. Shatford for any spirit  of independence which, in justice to his own convictions  and  in the interests of his  constituents, he may have  seen  lit  to  disnlav.

Jimmy MeGee, an old prospector in  the lower Okanagan Valley, and Similkameen, died at Fairview on Saturday  morning of Bright's disease. He was  interested early in Gaiup Hedley, being at one time half-owner with E. D.  Boeing in the Ready Cash mineral  claim, which is now the Ready Cash  addition to the Hedley townsite.  The Tacoina New Herald's Annual  is one of the finest productions in the  way of a, holiday number which have  been received at this office. The number is profusely'illustrated, and the  matter carefully 'compiled, giving a  succinct statement of Tacoma's expansion and bright prospects. The  letter press and engravings are superb,  showing what the Bell Press can do in  high class printing.  The long spell of spring-like weather,  which lasted the whole of last week,  was almost unnatural for January.  Some explain it as a judgment on the  wood dealers for raising the price to  $7 per cord. Prophesies are being  made that next winter, with the railway running in here, the prevailing  price for wood Avill be somewhere in  the neighborhood of $i per cord, and  that coal will be much more extensively used for fuel.

Jim Dixon, who was given the option  of leaving town last week, got down  as far as Fifteen Mile when he partook  of stimulants enough to make' him  brave, and he came hack to Hedley  Avhere he began to misbehave himself,  with the result that he was again in  the toils. When thoroughly sobered  up he was again brought up and had a  very narrow escape of going to Kam-  loops for a good-sized term, without  the option of a fine. Being thoroughly  penitent, however, he was told that a  $25 fine would be taken on condition  that he forthwith quit the town and  stay away. His friends put up, and  after contributing $25 to the revenue  of the province, he took his departure.  Those who want to play the hobo may  as well make up their minds that  Avhen they strike.

It was reported  at first that the horses had been killed  but there was'no equine valhalla for  them yet awhile, and they most continue to do stunts on the same old  board and take their chance of being  executed for glanders with the rest of  the nags.  The  Government telephone service  is   putting a .'phone-in    the C.P.R.  office at Penticton for the. convonience.  particularly of business  men in Ked-  ley who asked for it and who will pay  for monthly rental of same.   The C.P.  R. office has been the one office in Penticton which was most in demand, but  it-was impossible  to get the C. P. R.  agent to the 'phone, either because  he  was too busy to go  to  the  telephone  office or the agent wouldn't send for  for him,    It is -understood   that the  0. P. R. would pay the  rental themselves if   they   had   the.   privilege of  using the line on their.own  business,  but subscribers who want to do business with the C. P. R. office in Penticton would prefer to pay   it for  them  because they feared   that  the volume  of business which would be: carried on  by the C.  P.   R,  during  construction  would make a condition so congested  that the line woidd bo of little  use to  the  general    public.    The   restriction  appears a wise one on the score of public utility, but the  working out of it  may lead to some fine distinctions as  to what may be considered public business and what railway business,  and  logically it would be a little hard to  liefend why any  interest  or   concern  should be thus descriminated against.  , Your local paper is a necessity  to you, financially and socially.
