C  The news from Victoria thas the  special commission appointed at the  beginning of the year to impure into  claims against the defunct Midway &  Vernon, will prove very acceptable at  the present time. When the fiist report was given out as to the valuation  placed upon the work done iu grading  between Midway and Rock Creek  doubts were entertained as to how  creditors would fare, for the amount  specified as the valuation of the old  grade represented a stun that would  fall far short of .satisfying the claims  against the road. .The latest report,  however, is to tlie effect that every  claim against the work expended in  any way between Midway and Rock  Creek would be paid in full.  One point left in doubt was that of  payment of claims for survey work  done over tho sum.nit between the  head waters of the -West Fork and  Kelowna, the Kettle Yalley Co. who  have taken over the Midway and Vernon charter and, become responsible  for the debts, being indisposed to pay  for outlay that was not going to be of  anv benefit to them, Itnd as they will  not use any portion of the surveyed  route between the Wes]t Fork and the  Okanagan Mission Valley a regretable  hitch occurs in the payment for debts  contracted on that portion. This decision, if persistently adhered to, will  proven great hardship to those who  have suffered loss in equipping and  outfitting the pack trains for that particular work, for they did so in quite  as good faith as those who furnished  the supplies and the labor for building  the gi-cidfc -between Midway and Rock  Creek and it seems very, much of a  hardship that they should be left out  of .it for no fault of. their o>yn beyond  the misfortune of havingbeen tied up  with such a bunch. '  ;   .  It is .well known that the representative for the Similkameen has taken  strong giound in their behalf arid if  theie is any possibility of him yet being able to secure recognition of. their  claims it will be done.  There is a rumor to the effect that  the Great Northern have expressed an  inclination to change tho present running of the trains from this valley to  Spokane, not by abolishing the Oroville stop off but of making the layover elsewhere, and the 1-1111101- makes  it appear that the layover is to beat  Keremeos instead  of Oroville.    That  tho Oroville sojourn should have been  maintained as long as it has is taken  as evidence of the railway's supreme  indifference to the wishes or con ven-  of the people resident in this valley.  What they expect to'accomplish by  changing it to Keremeos instead is a  niysteiy,  and it seems difficult to believe that there can  be anything in  the report.     So far as Keremeos if-elf  is concerned  we   don't believe theie  are any  there who  would favor .such  a change, for as far as local convenience is concerned  it would  be worse  for them than  it is at present.     Now  if they want to run up to either Hedley or Princeton on business they can  put in a good morning's work at home;  take the train at' 10.30 and have either  two hours at Princeton or four hours  at Hedley and be back .home again at  a little after four o'clock  in the afternoon to get a long   evening's work at  home on their fruit lots, and people at  Princeton  or. Hedley  who want to go  to Keremeos can get time to do'business  there in the evening after ^their  arrival as well as the next morning before the train pulls out at 10.30.   With  a changed schedule which would merely substitute Keremeos for Oroville as  the place of layover  there  would   be  the one night away from  home without opportunity of accomplishing anything m the way of business,  ���������, What the people uf thy Siiililkariieeu  want from  the Great Northern  is a  straight run through  from Princeton  or Otter Flat.toSpo.kane  wishout a  layover at any point, and   they want  the immediate  completion of the road  through  to  the   coast.     It  has   now  taken    them    five   years    and   seven  months to get their rails from Midway  to Princeton.   ' With such a record it  is very apparent that Jim Hill is indeed getting old.  AROUND  THE WORKS  Bit by bit  the various  parts of the  new plant are  being put in commission.      Last  week   the   new   electric  motor to drive the rock crushers was  started  up and  went  olf   without a  hitch.     It is  a 50 h. p.   motor,   wire  wound  rotary,   with  special starting  torque of 125 h. p.  and capable of continuous overload of 23 per cent.   Its  power is such   that no rock which enters the crusher jaws is able to slow it  up in the. slightest and with ease it is  keeping the ore bins  full to overflowing with crushed rock.  The motor foi the batteries is also  in place and the big 10 foot pulley for  the battery camshaft is being put in  place and will in all piobability turn  over to-day by eU-ctric power. The  motor for the Oliver filter presses have  been in operation for somo time.  Altogether it has been most exasperating the delays the management  has been subjected to fiom the manufacture s of electric and other machinery for some of the motors and pumps  have not'yet come to hand and are  not likely to be here bi-foie about the  9th-of January although they were  contracted for on April 9th on 00 days  delivery. Thus the sixty days will  have run into nine months before they  reach here.  Up at the mine they are experiencing the advantage of the better- electric power supplied by the new generator for now they can handle eight  ore trains per day with greater facility than they could formerly "run  seven.

Messrs. Boeing & Bi-assi The ,new  work consisted in finishing the upper  storey: and also the basement. - The  upper storey has been divided oft' and  plastered with wood, fibre, making  three good rooms and a large roomy  landing which is a room in itself.  Downstairs the whole west side  from front to rear is plastered and finished off, making a commodious kitchen and dining room. Some excavation was also done in the east end of  the basement to accommodate'coal  bin and provide storage room while a  portion of it is partitioned oft' to protect the water pipes from freezing.  On the floor above, a,door was cut between the public ward and the bath  room, and a porch was placed over  the front door and a platform along  the front from the main entrance to  the east end of the building with  another small platform iu rear outside  the kitchen, door. A new cess-pit was  also put in to accommodate water-.'  from the kitchen sink entirely separate from the one which had formerly been put in to connect with the  bath-room and toilet.  FRACHE BROS.

MINE-OWNER DIES  Speculation as to Effect It May Have on  the Rock Creek Gold Mines Co.  The death is announced, in Victoria,  of Theodore Lubbe, originator and  builder of the Ksquimalt waterworks  plant. People in the upper country  will wonder what effect this will have  on the Rock ('reek Gold Mines Co.  which owns the 'Victoria claim on the  north fork of Rock Creek about threo  miles east ol* ('amp Mc.Kinney. The  Victoria claim was slaked several  years befoie the famous Cariboo mine  was discovered, and in the years 1SD0-7  it was reopened and considerable development done but closed down  awaiting transportation. Why a property of such merit has been kept idle  all these years has been a mystery.  Mr. Iiiihbe and his associates had tlie  controlling interest in the property.  SCOTTISH RED DEER  TO STOCK PROVINCE  Suggestion Is Made  that Island Reserve  Should Be Formed for Supply  Purposes  Victoria. Dec. 14���������In a letter to Hon.  Dr. Young, the provincial secretary,  Mr. Warburton Pike, who is now in  the Old Country on a special mission  for tlie government, sends the encouraging news that Scottish red doer for  stocking suitable portions of this province iran be secured for approximately JO pounds each. Tho .suggestion receiving consideration is that an island  in tho gulf shall be- placed under reserve and the imported animals placed  thereon under proper care until they  become acclimatized, this island reserve being later used as a distribution depot- in the stocking of suitable  localities for red deer in various parts  of the province.

AND THE VETO  ������������������The-comment of the average paper  in   the  United States on  the  British  elections and particularly on the British House of Lords is amusing for the  ignorance  on the  subject it  displays.  The  Asquith   government  is for tlie  most part represented as championing  the cause of the masses against a hereditary  oligarchy.      But   the   truth   is  that if any  government in the United  States would ask for such powers from"  the   people   to enable  them   to   run a-  muck   with the   constitution   that the  radical  administration   in Britain has  been  seeking  in the  last two  British  elections  they  would   bo  laughed at.  The people of the United States would  no more  think of dispensing''with the  veto 'power over any administration  than they would, of crowning big Bill  Tai't. king.    It is ages since, any sovereign of Britain has  possessed the veto  power exereiseil  by  the President of  the United States  and  it is decades  since the British House  of Lords has  attempted  to exercise the  veto power  vesteil  in   them   with  one-tenth   the  degree    of    arbitrariness    that    the  American Senate does every year with  the commonest measures  that go to  them from  Congress.   Neither would  the people of Canada think of dispensing with the veto power of the Canadian   Senate   no  matter   how   rotten  some senatorial appointments may be,'  and it  is now generally recognized in  Canada  that the  greatest misfortune  .any  Federal  Government  in  Canada  ������an have is to have a Senate that is of  the same political stripe as the government in power.      When the Canadian  ���������Senate was Conservative  in  its  leanings at  tin-; beginning of the   Laurier  regime   they  performed  some service  for which the best Liberals are to-day  trttly   thankful  and  among  the good  things they did was the vetoing of the  Driiininond County railway bill.  In all probability it is the hereditary-  principle of the. British upper house  which is proving the. bete noir, but the  iba.sis of reform proposed by the House  ���������of Lords itself should remove that objection. The proposal aims to cut  down the number of peers entitled to  sit in the House of Lords and to dispense with the principle by which  heredity gives the right to a seat, that-  right requiring the indorsement of the  House of Lords as to fitness. lb even  goes  further  than   this and  suggests  Notice is hereby given that an application will be made under Part V., Sec. 23,  of the "Water Act", 1909, to obtain a licence in', the.- Similkameen Division;vof Yale  District.

A new townsite lias been laid out at  Princeton which adjoins Hugh Hunter's phice on the west. The Star says  the lots are 50x120 feet which is much  more"'generous than townsite plotters  are generally disposed to be. The new  townsite is controlled by the United  Empire company and is called East  Princeton. Thus each coal company  will have a townsite of its own.  Last year's smoker proved so successful as a fun-maker for New Years  that the lads from the mine are coming down this year again for another'  which is to come off on Monday night  the 26th.

Young Steyes the half breed charged with cattle-stealing was given a  hearing on Friday night last and the  evidence being particularly strong  against him he was committed for  trial at the assizes. During the hearing chief Charlie Allison acted as interpreter in obtaining the evidence of  the Indian woman, Elizabeth Moeace.  On various occasions the local court  hits benefited by the services of the  chief who has co-operated in securing  the conviction of offenders who have  been trying to lead'the Indians astray  and while he is always on hand to assist members of the tribe who may be  in difficulty he has no use for lawbreakers who get them into trouble.  There has been too much looseness in  the matter of taking liberties with  cattle belonging to others and doubtless young Steves in this case was only  doing what lie had known others to  do.  fake notice that I.

Riverside Nurseries of Grand Forks  was in town on Friday and Saturday  looking up orders for spring planting.  >Ve can heartily recommend the stock  furnished by the Riverside nursery.  Mr. Dynes, who formerly resided in  'the Kootenay valley recently moved  to Penticton, where lie is now making  his home.  H. B. Meausetteis busy these days  installing a water system in the home  of D. J. Innis. Air pressure is the  principle on which this system is  worked. A windmill supplies the  power to pump water and air into a  large steel tank,' which is made sufficiently strong to maintain the pressure required and is protected from  freezing. The former attempt to erect  the derrick with windmill attached  into position resulted in the collapse  of the light steel derrick and a long  delay was occasioned as new parts  had to be ordered. Mr. George B.  ('lark is installing a similar system in  his new house.  There was a good attendance and  considerable interest shown at the  Fruit Grower's meeting held in the  town hull on Saturday afternoon.  Several new members were enrolled  and a good number of old members  paid their dues for the ensuing year.  In response to an invitation from the  secretary of the provincial association  to the local associations to send in  resolutions or questions of interest to  fruit growers, to be taken up at the  annual provincial meeting at Vancouver early in January, the following  was passed: "Resolved that in the interests of fruit growing in the interior  of British Columbia a fumigation station should be established at Grand  Forks'". The object of this resolution  being to make it possible to bring in  trees, plants and shrubs from Ontario  and the States to the south which at  present is practically prohibited on  account of the fact that they must  first be sent to Vancouver for fumigation  and by the  time they  reach   the  "VT0T1CE is hereby, given that an application  -L> will be made under part' V. of the '���������Water  Act. liJOi)," to obtain a licence in the .Osoyoos  Division of Vale District.
