On Monday, 'morning- news ,. cum- in  by phone that Frank Richter hud died  in Victoria hospital at an eaily hour  on Sunday (Chi istmas) morning. A-  bout a couple of months ago he had  an attack which threatened paralysis,  and he decided to spend the winter in  a wanner clime. On his way to California he was taken ill at Spokane as  noted in last week's papei, but recovering, he and Mrs. Richter proceeded  on to Victoria wheie they intended to  stay for a few day* with their daughters who were attending school there.  The recovery from the first attack en-  route proved to have been but a brief  respite for soon after reaching Vic  toria he was taken to the hospital.  While the news ol his death might  under the circumstances occasion but  little surprise, yet when it came it  produced more or less ot a shock, and  this fact is but one of the many circumstances which go to show how big  the man really was, and what a large  part he had in the life and affaiis ot  the Similkameen. What his demise  may mean for the life and material  welfaie ,of the valley at tlie present  time we can only coujectiue and that  will depend entirely on what disposition he may have made of his enoi-  mous piopeity intciest>.  Besides his widow who has looked  well after his comfoit in his declining  yeais,, there is surviving bun, of his  first.family, five sons: Joe on the old  Ingram ranch over on Kettle River  Ed. on the lower place in Richter Pass  Agent-General for British Columbia Re.  ports on Success at British Shows  Stocks ���������'.':   Mines  HerbertB.

C  Victoria, Dec. 22.���������Writing to the  Deputy-Minister of Agriculture, Mr.  W. C. Scott, under a London date of  the 8th inst., Mr. J. H. Turner, Agent-  Geneial for British Columbia in London, says: "By this time you know of  our complete success at the Horticultural Hall show. It as by far tlie best  exhibit we have ever made and I have  no doubt the best apple exhibit ever  made in England���������or Great Britain.  Every credit is due to Bullock-Webster for the admirable way in which  he arranged eveiything. It was really  a work of art and elicited the highest  praise from all comers and the attendance, too, was very good���������much better  than we have had befoie. We also  had the advantage of another day, as  the show should have terminated on  Saturday, but as the regular fortnightly flower show of the R. H. S. was to  take place on Tuesday, they offered to  let us keep the fruit theie until Tuesday night. This was a very important concession, and the exhibit attracted modi favoiable notice from the  visitors to the flower show.'  JIM HILL SAYS BUILD  MASONIC SERVICE  Promises Vancouverites That V. V. & E.  Will Sson Be Pushed Through  to the Coast  As a counter blast to those who take  delight in constantly proclaiming that  the Great Northern have no intention  to complete the V. V. & E. through to  the coast, Jim Hill took occasion last  week in Vancouver to give the statement direct denial and stated pubic:] y  the intention of his road to complete  through to the coast as speedily as  they possibly could. He did not fix  any definite time when it would be  completed and spoke of difficulty in  securing satisfactory grade but held  out no cause for fear that a grade on  which they could build would not be  obtained. His views on the question  of grade or route did not point iu the  direction of adoption of the eight-mile  tunnel plan.

Of the1  second, family there are surviving,  four, two girls of whom an: attending school in Victoria and the youngest a babe in arms.  Prank Richter was born  in Austria  and was 13 years of age or perhaps a  year more. He came to America in 1856  residing successively  in   Texas,   Arizona aud California before he came to  ���������British  Columbia in  the early sixties  and of the time, he resided in the United  States, two and  a. half years were  spent  in  Texas  where   he saw some  rough  frontier life with lynch  law iu  sion   seven   men    hang on   one  tree,  full swing,  for he  saw  on   one ocea-  After coming  to British  Columbia he  engaged  in placer  mining on   the Columbia river  before coming to the Si-  milkaineen   in 18(5-1.  where he  took up  the ranch   now known  as  the  Lowe  ranch.     Previous  to  his  staking the  Lowe ranch an attempt had been nia.de  by the  local Hudson  Day factor,  McLean,   to  stake it but the  Indians of  the .Similkameen who were then noted  as out: of the most hostile tribes in the  province  chased McLean   off   and  he  left there and went up to the property  afterwards owned  by Coulthard   and  opened a. trading-post.    After Richter  had staked it the  Indians adopted the  same tactics with him, throwing down  his  fence's and  annoying as much   as  they  could.    By a. reasonable amount  of diplomacy  on his part  but a- readiness to oppose force  with force when  that became necessary he managed to  weather    it   out   and   hold   his   land  against  them.    For  the first orchard  on that land he  packed the fruit trees  over  the.  Hope  trail.    Later lie sold  out to William   Lowe and took up the  Concluded on Page'Four.  The annual divine service of Hedley  Masonic Lodge was held in Fraternity  hall on  Sunday evening and it served  the double purpose on this occasion of  celebrating both the Masonic anniversary of St.  John  the evangelist and  Christmas day. -  Dispensation whs'seen red fiom  the Giand Master to permit the members to appear in regalia  and special music was provided for the  service,  a choir under the leadership  of Mrs.  J. A.  Brown, of Keiemeos.  contributing greatly to the success of  the event.   The hall was filled   with  the large  congregation which : turned  out and it was most fortunate;, that  precaution  had been taken to provide  a larger  place than    the   church   or  otherwise   about    two-thirds    would  havo been   unable to get inside.    Rev.  A, H. Cameron,'chaplain of the lodge,  preachedan excellent sermon in which  many misconceptions on   the part of  outsiders as. to the aims and practices  of Masonry were dealt with and shown  to be  erroneous, while the true ideals  of the order and  its place as a handmaid of  the   church  duly   accorded.  Mrs.   Brown sang in, excellent voice a  solo entitled "Star of Bethlehem" and  with Mrs.  Forbes, sang a  duett entitled -'Bethlehem Star"  both of which  were much enjoyed by the congregation as  was also the anthem  by the  choir.   The   Lodge  appreciates   very  highly the kindness of Mrs. Brown  in giying  the   service the benefit of  her fine vocal talent and the pains she  took in  directing the musical part of  the evening.     Neither  are they unmindful  of   the  organist,  Miss   Gertrude Smith,  and the 'members of the  choir,     The collection was in aid of  hospital   and netted    the   handsome  sum of $16.75.  It bus  been said by those who have  investigated the matter carefully that,  although   at the age of foity-five fully  eighty pe,i cent of men aie established  in  whatever pursuit  they follow  and  are in   receipt of incomes in excess of  their expenditure,  at the age  of sixty  it has been found  that ninety-five per  cent are dependent upon   theii   dally  earnings,  or upon their children fo.i  snppoit.     Many,  no doubt,  read the  despatch from  Detroit which recently  appeared in the Canadian papers, and  which desciibed   the   condition  of  a  man who   but a little more than forty  years ago was  a "financial power" in  that city, who had a  "palatial home"  on .me of the most f-ushiiiii-tbli- thoroughfares, entertained  lavishly, and  to whom   every person,   high  or low,  was prepared to pay homage.  But the  fates were against him..   He suffered  serious... financial losses, and when he  began to go down hill he found it was  properly greased for the occasion. His  friends deserted him  like rats from a  sinking ship, and  now-at 80   years of  age,.after his day's labour, he wends  his  way  to the city with  the bent,  broken down old men who have influence enough  to have  their   names on  the city's "pay roll.  The moral is that out-of your abundance something should be laid, aside  for declining years, and invested  where thieves cannot reach it in any-  possible way. This means is afforded  you under the Canadian Government  Annuities Act which the Parliament  of Canada passed in the Session 190S,  and which received the unanimous  support of both sides of the House.  You may get all information bj* applying at the Post Office, or by addressing the Superintendent of Annui-.  ties, Ottawa.  PREPARING FOR OPENING  Regulations   to  Facilitate    Business in  Coming Session of the Legislature  MASONIC INSTALLATION  The time for the presentation of petitions for private bills will expire  January '22. Private bills must be  presented to the house on or before  February '2. Reports of standing or  select committees on private bills will  not- be received after February 9.

Manager Walker announces that he  has engaged the English comedian  Matte. Grieg as a member of the  "Merry Musicians"* who appear here  in Fraternity hall on Wednesday Jan.  ���������1th, under the auspices of the Ladies'  Hospital Auliliary. Mr. Grieg has  been two seasons in America and Canada and has been most successful on  the vaudeville and concert stage of the  East. His contributions to the program .'ire clean and refined but interesting and very funny. The Merry  Musicians are promised as the surprise  of the season a "Hilarious sufficiency"  or an entertainment of humorous  novelties. This is one of the Walker  attractions you  cannot att'oid to miss-  On Tuesday night, the anniversary  of St John the cvaiurelist, the brethern  of Hedley Lodge A. F. <fc A.

Hedley Lodge is in a prosperous  condition and during the past two-  years has made good progress.

Tin-  idea that "finds is  keeps" is   too  prevalent and it seems to have  received  too great an  acceptance among  the  .Indians.

One of thelittleinstances of thought-  fulness that tend to help on the Christmas spirit and is an example why  the relations between employers and  employees in Hedley have always been  much more agreeable than in ninny  other camps, was seen in the annual  . donation of a good fat turkey to each  employee who is a householder. The  practice was begun three years ago  and it shows that the employers are  not unmindful of the comforts of their  employees.  The Oroville Gazette issued a fine  Christmas number which was a credit  to that office and a credit to the town  in which it was published, for the liberal advertising patronage extended  to it showed that Oroville. has live enterprising business men. One feature  among the write-ups which it contained which proved of special interest to  readers in the Similkameen was the  sketch of early days furnished by our  own old pioneer, Robt. Stevenson,  who could tell them more about the  early days and Indian wars that took  place- around Oroville than the oldest  old-timer now resident in or about  Oroville.

A  new plan of presenting the entertain-  tainnient was adopted  which  was a  great improvement on  the old   way  and  relieved   altogether   the   tedium  which    always     seemed    inseparable  from  such  occasions.    It was   called  a Santa Clans   Cantata and  was presented in  three, acts one of which was  a view of Santa Clans  workshop in  which  quaintly dressed sprites were  busily at work  manufacturing  toys.  Interspersed through the presentation  were given recitations by the children  which were worked  in as part of the  show and  by this means  lost much of  the   stiffness   of   the   set   recitation.  Most of these  were  well   given   and  that  by Erniinie Wheeler   was specially  apt and given   with a  degree of  expression   and    naturalness    which  showed  most skilful training   as well  as  demonstrating the  wonderful histrionic   talent possessed  by the child.  Mr.    .Jamieson     made   an   admirable  Santa and if that mythical personage  is supposed to  be of Scandinavian origin it was evident on  this occasion  that he had followed  the   Pict   and  Scot wing of tho great Teuton emigration.

Armstrong of the lower  valley is making a holiday visit to  friends at her old home in Tdaho.  News of the death "of Mr. Frank  Richter was received here with most  sincere regret and as a mark of regard  the ball, which was to have been held  at Keremeos Centre iu the hall bear-  his name, on Monday evening was  cancelled.' .  Mr. and Mrs. T..W. Coleman, who  '.were expected home, in time for  Christinas failed to arrive; Mrs.'Coleman not being sufficiently strong to  stand the trip right through. They  remained over at Trail, their old home  for a rest and a visit to old friends.  -.Rather than disappoint the people  who had come in from a distance  those in charge of the dance on Monday evening arranged for ������'iie in the  Town Hall. There was a fair attendance and a good time.   .  The Late Frank Richter  During.  the past week -about, two  inches of snow, or nearly enough for  sleighing (if we had the sleighs) has  fallen in the lower valley and remained on the ground. It made ideal  Christmas weather.  George Allison and Billy Daly, who  have been trapping up near the headwaters of the Twenty-mile creek, were  down for Christinas. They report the  ' furry tribe as very scarce and difficult  to locate in  that section  or. the coun-  ��������� tiy.    "    V ���������:  Rev. George; Kinney left for the  south on Monday's train, without advising his friends of his intended destination or the probable duration of  his a liseuce. Some are already drawing their conclusions, but; for ourself,  we do not believe in convicting a man  on purely circumstantial evidence.  There is no reason why the Similkameen should not be one of the  very  best fishing streams in the province  and made to contribute in a, very substantial manner to the larders of residents Of the valley, as well as providing a strong drawing card to sportsmen who annually visit this province  in search of some fishing. Reasons  exist as to why the stream is practically void of fish as in recent years  and one of these is the absence of a  fish ladder at the dam a short distance  above Oroville. We are pleased to  note that one of our citizens, in the  person of R. L. Gibson has, been sufficiently interested and enterprising  enough to take this matter up with  the proper authorities and so far as he  has gone has met with encouragement. The international commission  on fisheries has promised to take up  the matter of the fish ladder question  and the Canadian fishery department  lias expressed a willingness to stock  the river. , With this done there will  be a better chance of protecting the  fish in the river from influences existing at present, but which should be  made subject to control.  The Sunday School  Christmas  tree  and entertainment given  in-the town  hall on Friday evening proved an immense   success    and   reflected   great  credit upon  the ladies who had most  to do with   the  arrangement and the  training of the children in the various  parts of the excellent program furnished.    Those  deserving of special mention  iu   this   connection    being Mes-  dames  Gibson,   Iunis and Meausette.  The decorations  of  the,  hall  and the  heavily   laden  Christinas tree breathed tho very spirit of Christmas while  tlie  numbers   of  the   program,   with  which    the    youngsters    entertained  their elders   well  selected and appropriate  to   the  occasion.     The climax  came in   the arrival of Santa,   amid a  jingle of bells just at  the  conclusion  of the  last number on   the   program.  In   this capacity Mr.   W.   H.   Quant  proved a very jolly Kris  Kringle and  before he had exhausted the resources i  of the tree   had delighted the  heart of  every child in the room with some appropriate gift, and,   incidentally, kept  most of the grown-ups  in a mild state  of panic for fear lest they furnish the  next target  for   the   mirth   of their  friends in the way of being called into  the lime light to  accept some   ridiculous present.     Altogether it was an  evening  of  unalloyed  enjoyment  for  both old and   young and   the numbers  present  went to prove  that, when occasion of the right kind arrives. Keremeos can  muster  a good  sized audience.  Continued from Page one.  land  now occupied   by   his   son   Ed.  Richter,   using  the capital  from  the  sale of the first holding to increase his  operations in stock-raising and for the  purchase of more  land when land was  cheap, and he had his choice of the  best.  The  particular enterprise for which  the Siniilkameyn  of to-day is most in-  ! debted to him was his.improvement of  the Surprise land   at Keremeos and  his building of the beautiful home -and.  grounds which has   been his residence  for the past ten or twelve years.    This  work on   his part  was  the first   great  object lesson of what the Similkameen  Was  capable as a fruit-growing   district, and it is difficult to estimate the  effect it has had.in making;the Sirnil-  kaineen   what it is at the present moment.       ........  Men sometimes express wonder at  the success which has attended his  operations but they did not understand the man or there ..would he no  cause for wonder.. He : was simply a  man who was capable ofvbig things  and it would be clearly impossible to  place him where big results were obtainable and expect him not to achieve  them.- There was no luck about it and  there should be no wish to, rob him of  the credit for what lie has achieved.  It is not saying a whit too much to say  that so far as conditions and results in  the Similkameen are concerned he saw  the end from the hep-inning and liis  every move was shaped so as to. take  the full advantage of all that was  fortuitous in the situation. Had tie  been in other spheres of life it would  have been the same. Had he received  a banking education and pursued his  activities in banking circles he would  have been one of the greatest bankers  of his age.  Yet in his disposition there was  nothing domineering or assertive; in  fact he was ono. of the most unobtrusive of men. Among strangers his  manner was cpiiet biit self composed,  but with his more intimate friends he  was frankness and cordiality itself. Of  latter years the writer shared more of  his confidence and had greater opportunity of appraising his genius, his  many.estimable qualities and his high  sense of honor, for his wealth was hot  amassed by business methods that  would not bear the closest scrutiny.  Even at the ripened span of three  score years and ten his death is a distinct loss to the'community. The Gazette extends sympathy to the bereaved widow" and family.  J. A.
