There is ��������� a fierce indictment against  the Grout Northern Rail wa y Conipahy  over their workings of the Kaslo &  Slocan Railway, by the citizens of  Kaslo. They have unanimously voted  at a public meeting to call the attention of the government to the subject,  and urging them either to force the  G. N. R. to operate tlie line or cancel  their charter.    The Kooteuaian says:  "The K. & S. train did not go out  last Tuesday and it is doubtful if the  line will ever again he operated by  the Great Northern. * We hope not.  What the people of Kaslo would like  to see is the pulling out of the Great  Northern outfit complete, and give  another line a chance to develop the  territory that has of late been so contemptuously neglected by the Hill  company. !

NOTICE  This is how Martin/Bun-ill regards  the reciprocity bargain of Fielding and  Patterson:  "The abolition of the duties on fruit  come as an unexpected, disastrous  and absolutely unjustifiable blow to  the fruit industry of British Columbia  in particular, and indeed, to Ontario  as well.  "In British Columbia there has  been tremendous investment in fruit  lands. The whole industry is in the  construction stage and is being developed under expensive and somewhat difficult conditions.  "Our great natural market on the  Canadian prairies is being rapidly exploited by Washington and Oregon in  spite of, the existing tariff. The wiping out of the tariff f, means fiercer  competition in the Canadian market  with absolutely no equivalent, as the  great fruit states south of the line  supply every market within their own  borders and are heavy, exporters. The  Government is absolutely unjustified  by facts iii proposing the free entry of  United States fruits.  SIMILKAMEEN' LAND DISTRICT.  "Distkict or Vale.  rr<ikc notice that I.

COASTING ACCIDENT  The first casualty attending the  dangerous sport of coasting on Hospital hill occurred oh Saturday evening  when little Viola Messenger, aged 9  years, lost control of her sled and failed to make the bridge. Her head came  in contact with the brace on the outside of the railing and she was picked  up in ah unconscious condition and  carried into the hospital. The spell of  unconsciousness lasted for several  hours and alarmist reports were circulated which exaggerated the nature  of the injuries received. Next day.  however, her condition was much improved and by Monday afternoon she  was moved from the hospital to her  home. Her injury, besides the deep  cut made iu her forehead by coming  in contact with the bridge, consisted  principally in concussion of the brain,  but no permanent ill results are anticipated.

STOKSS  Dceonilier2!Hh, l!'l"- nO-10  Asked to Visit Canada in 1914 for Peace  Centeunial  (Victoria Colonist.)  It is proposed to invite his Majesty  to visit Canada and participate in the  celebration of the Centennial of Peace  between Great Britain and the United  States, which will be held in 1914. The  idea is an excellent one, but it is to be  hoped that it will not interfere with  any arrangements which His Majesty  may contemplate in the way of an  earlier visit.  POLITICAL CRISIS  Chariot tetown. P. F. 1., Jan. 21,- -  William Laird, Liberal mbeber for the  second district of Queens, in the local  legislature, has resigned owing to ill-  health. The by-election has been called for Februarys. Including Laird,  the parties now stand: Liberals 1(S;  Conservatives, 1-1. At tlie last general  election Laird's majority was .1(10. The  fight will be a Herce one, as the fall of  the government hangs on the result.  When Fielding and Patterson went  to Washington to 'resume negotiations  for reciprocal trade relations with the  States the possibility of them agreeing  to any arrangements which would  prove inimical to Canadian interests  was not taken seriously and it was  therefore a somewhat rude awakening  when Fielding announced the result in  the House of Commons.  The following despatch from Victoria shows how it is regarded there:  VICTORIA, Jan. 27���������Premier McBride interviewed this morning said:  ,'While I do not wish to take an alarmist view of the reciprocity arrangements that have been laid before the  house at Ottawa, it "is abundantly: eviT  dent from' a perusal of the proposals  that if adopted they will inflict very  serious injury to this province. As he  knows the conditions prevailing here  surely we may look to Mr. Teinpleman  to protect our interests and to bring  about sortie modification of the very  drastic changes it is proposed to adopt!  SEVERE INJURV  "Take for instance the free entry into Canada of fruit, dairy products and  agricultural products generally.    This  means an injury  to  our agricultural  classes that will be most severe. In the  first pi ace   it will  put the markets of  the prairie   provinces   in   the   hands  largely of the America ns,  who  can,  even   under existing conditions compete there with our fruitgrowers and  those of eastern  Canada.   In  British  Columbia the fruit  industry by great  efforts is being built up and it must be  remembered  that in the states to the  south,  where the  industry is  long established,   with very   large   areas of  cleared land, it costs very much  less  to  market   fruit than  it does   here,  where we  are endeavoring to settle  our lands,   and where  the advantage  of a tariff enabling us to  have a good  market in the prairies   has in the past  operated helpfully.     To remove this  vantage now will most seriously injure our efforts to settle and build up  the province.     The same applies   to  other branches  of agriculture,  and to  make our markets free to  the United  States   will not greatly   reduce   the  prices our farmers are  now getting,  but in  those commodities such as butter,   eggs  -iml poultry of which   our  output does not yet equal the demand,  the result  will he that instead   of importing from  other parts of Canada,  these will  be shipped us from  Washington,  from Oregon  and from  California,  and  the   trade with   Ontario  and the other eastern provinces would  decrease.   This will not only effect the  Canadian farmer, but it will lessen the  volume of traffic on our transportation  lines and  build up the  business of the  competing  lines in the country to the  south.  IJ LOW TO TIMHER INDUSTRY  The free entry of lumber from the  United States will also be a most serious blow to our timber industry,  throwing the market of the ,prairies  into the hands of the Americans lessening the trade of Canadian transporting lines.  NO HKNEKIT TO CANADA  Looking over tlie whole matter as  set out in the despatches from Ottawa  I cannot see in what way the proposals can be of any benefit to Canada-,  The country has been progressing well,  times have been prosperous and the  people contented, and the advantages  to be attained by the present-proposals  are. to my mind, wholly to the United  After   the combing down given 'Me-.  Connell in   these columns, in our issue  of January 5th  he attempts  an   explanation of his relations  with Wiar-  ton Beet Sugar which would be laughed at -in* Wiai-ton  where  the  circumstances" are known.    He  now gives a  new version of what he says transpired between him  and  the Mayor on  that occasion when he stopped him in  the street from what he himself stated  to us  when  in. Hedley  in the  fall  of  liKX).    His attitude  then towards  the  Mayor was most savagely unfriendly  and  went to the  extent of rejoicing  that he had been  beaten  in his election.    Now he says .that, the  Mayor  only accused him of dunning  him for  payment of a stock subscription.    The  Mayor was a man who paid  his debts  and   would take  no offence at merely .  being asked to discharge any   obligation he had contracted and there was  nothing in that to arouse the amount  ef   animus   displayed   by   McConnell  concerning it.    To ask   the public  to  believe anything so puerile is to ask an  absurdity.  Next he reverts to the wireless situation and puts to the editor of the  Gazette a. series of questions not one  of which is honestly or fairly put and  as such they are not capable of being  answered "yes" or "no." Almost-  eeery one of them contains a kernel of  truth; the rest is a lie. To the truthful part we answer "yes"; to the lying  part we answer, "no".  The facts are these:  late in  December 1909 a friend  brought to us a cdpy  of    the   September    number   of   the  "World's  Work"   magazine  in which  was an attack on United Wireless in a  communication  signed  C. M. K.   and,  part of it a gross attack upon the personal honor of one of the directors in  particular, although, so far   as we can  remember   at   present,    neither   the  name of the company nor  that of the  individual director attacked was given  but the attack was so cleverly worded  as to liiake it unmistakeable   who he  wanted to stab.   The.  thing  was too  serious  to   disregard and  we immediately  wrote   Charles   L.   Parker,  of  Vanoouver,  for an  explanation, notwithstanding     the    fact     that     the  cowardice of the writer in  concealing  his  indentity  under a pen name forfeited any claim  to be believed.    The  magazine we  had to return   next day.  The reply we received from Mr. Parker under date of  December 23rd. 1909  concerning it  (and   we  would a. hundred times rather  trust Mr. Parker to  tell  the  truth,  as  we believe  he did.  than trust any statement made by the  editor of the Sunset) is as follows;  "Now in regard to the article in the  September number of the World's  Work", that was attacking United  Wireless all right and the promoter  referred to was intended to be niy  father. Apparently the letter had  been submitted to a lawyer before be  ing printed and you can see for yourself therewas absolutely nothing definite in it on which we could bring suit.  As far as the article goes I think it is  a boost for United Wireless. As far  as I could see, the principal kick in the  article was that some imaginary man  had bought United Wiieless stock at  $20 per share and several months later  wanted the Company to buy it back  at $30 a share which they would not  do. Did you ever hear of any company that could sell stock at any certain price, use the money received  from the sale of that stock building  up a system and a few months later  pay the man $10 per share more than  he paid the company in the first place?  Why it is ridiculous. Our only reason  for selling stock is to get money to  complete our system with and lniiid  more stations. When we sella man  stock we never tell him we will buy it  back later. We couldn't if we wanted  to as our charter forbids us buying  our own stock. You can readily see  that if a company is permitted to buy  its own stock that stock could easily  be manipulated. We can buy any  other stock but our own. When wo  get a man's money I'm- stock we spend  it building stations with. We are not  running a bank and keeping a-man's  money   on   deposit ready   to pay back  States.    To   Canada, the   effect will  bo j to him at  any time and  certainly not  to disorganize trade conditions, injure  our industries  and our Canadian lines  of traffic, and all for the benefit of the  Americans."  with iiO per cent, added.

Some  ol' them are brutally candid, on the  subject of what Uncle Sam has in  stole for Canada,  Thirty years' operation of the Canadian tariff or National Policy has resulted in over 150 American industries  establishing branch fact-ones in Canada. It was not until they had become convinced of the fact that protection to home industry had become  a fixed principle in.Canada's fiscal policy that the" movement became general, and now when Vancouver was  counting on gtlting a. branch of the  United States Stool plant and Hamilton, Out, are about to get the Oliver  Plow Works, of Indiana, which Elbert  Hubbard says will mean an addition  in population of 25000 from that one  industry it is surely an inopportune-  time for Fielding, Patterson, Laurier  et al. to give them the impression that  if they wait a. bit it may not be necessary for them to come at all.  The announcement that fruit is one  of the commodities to go on the free  list in the reciprocity arrangements  entered into by Canadian commissioners Fielding and Patterson comes like a  thunderclap to fruit-growers great and  small. Large concerns that had un-  deraken huge irrigation schemes involving the expenditure of sums in  the neighborhood of a   million  dollars  in some cases more, have reason to  be dismayed at the prospect of heavy  loss staring them in the face, and men  who had saved tip a few thousands  out of the earnings of almost a lifetime and put it into fruit lands at  prices ranging from $200 to $700 per  acre expecting the investment to  keep them in their declining years,  are alike dumbfounded at the suddenness with which this calamity has  come upon them. After adopting a  fiscal system and demonstrating by a  trial of over thirty years that it has  been the means of building up a prosperous country-it seems incredible  that a man in banner's position would  put in the power of two old chaps like  the Commissioners to work ruin of  this nature and extent.  facts from Parker we paid no more attention to C. M. K. than to tlie barking ot a yellow dog, and only a blackguard like the editor of the Sunset or  of "World's Work" would permit the  publication of an attack upon the bona  fides of an iustituti> ai or the. personal  honor of an individual by any one  who was too cowardly to sign his  name. The Sunset code of honor in  that respect we all know, and thanks  to Ida. M. Tarbell and Tom Lawson we  also know something of the capabilities of the power behind the throne in  "World's Work."  To further prove the lying resorted  toby McConnell in this list of questions, it is only necessary to-point out  that the last sale of stock was made  here on September 10th, 1909, and  that neither after seeing the article by  C. M. lv. nor for weeks before was a;  man in Hedley asked to buy a share  of the stock. But the C. M. K. article  had nothing whatever to do with the'  cessation of stock sales. The only reason for this was that the price of the  stock had then gone beyond a mark  where the editor of the Gazette was  prepared to put any of his own money  into it and he is not in the habit of  pressing others to risk where he will  not do so himself.  Another lie contained in the questions is the assumption that any  prominence given to Wireless in the  columns of the Gazette was due to any  instructions received from any source  whatever. A careful examination of  our office files, moreover, shows that  only three times in the six months  proceeding the action of the post  office authorities in the. middle of .Tune  last, was Wireless mentioned in our  columus and in every instance it was  the reproduction of a news item concerning it taken from Vancouver  dailies and had no reference whatever  to the purchase of stock.  Thus McConnell the prince of lying  slanderers, has again had his lies put  down his throat. Possibly when he  gets a little older he will learn who to  leave alone and quit .imagining that  others could be as unprincipled as  himself.  We believe United Wireless is not a  swindle and the statement of the finances and position of the company received by shareholders the other day  warrants the belief.  And yet we. have reason  too to both  thank  and pity  him.    Thank him because he. has compelled us to bring out  facts that may tend to clear away mis- !  conceptions  on the'part of some who i  perhaps might  have been   disposed to !  blame,���������facts   that  we   had preferred !  to hold back rather that obtrude upon j  the public:  and pity  him   because   he  has allowed   himself to be  drawn into  a trap  through   having  been   given a  "wrong steer" by others.  c���������The point of diversion at the spring.  d -The quantity of water applied l'or|in cubic  feet per second) U cubic foot.  e���������The character of the proposed works is a  ditch HOOyards- ���������  f���������Tho premises on which the water is to.be  used (describe same) hot 17S.

If you like good sweet apple eider  take your pitcher to Rolls and get a  quart 20c, ���������'or a, gallon for 05c���������It will  soon be all gone.  The days have  already lengthened  out an  hour and twenty one minutes,  twenty-five  minutes  in   the 'morning  , and fifty.six in the evening. r  Word   was   received   on   Saturday  from   YV. A. McLean who wrote from  <   Portland saying that  Mrs.  Gillespie  had stood tlie journey quite well.  Exchanged by Mistake at Shatford's  Hall the  night of the Hospital dance;  .a lady's .-ize 3i rubber for a oh.   The 8-A  rubber is now at this orifice.  Miss Corrigan, of Keremeos is visiting in Hedley for a. few days with her  father and brothers, and is the guest  of her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs.  John Wirth.  Holly Brown was taken to the hospital on Saturday for treatment for  her ailment. During the past week  she has been subject to a series of  convulsions. A  John. Love, of Phoenix, paid Hedley  a visit last week and remained for a  couple of days. He reports Phoenix  prosperous and mining in that section  in a healthy condition.  On Tuesday night next (7th inst) the  Lyceum Players will appear in Hedley  under the auspices of the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary. General admission  75 cents; reserved seats $1.00.  Dr. McCaffrey, of Princeton, came  down on Tuesday and assisted Dr. McEwen in tho amputation of a portion  of \V. T. Atherton's feet which hud  been frozen during  the late cold snap.  Mrs. Frank Logsden arrived in town  last week on her return from a lengthy,  visit to her,friends in California. She  remained a day and then went on to  Princeton where her husband is working.  The harpist Tioiuanillo is a strong  feature of the entertainment given by  tlie Lyceum Players. He is declared  ���������by many to be the equal of Miss Sas-  : soli the celebrated harpist -'who accompanied Melba.  The annual general meeting of the  Hedley General Hospital will be held  on Tuesday Feb. 14th for presentation  of the financial statement and election  of a- new Board of Directors, as 'well as  to consider other, matters of importance. ������������������'     _  Walter McRaye the. noted entertainer has the oversight imd direction of  tlie Lyceum Players. He has no equal,  in liis presentation of habitant stories,  but on this occasion there will only be  time for him to give one habitant selection.  February 2nd. Ecclesiastics call it  Candlemas Day, but we on the frontier will continue to know it as  "groundhog day" and will stick to the  , old legend of the groundhog and his  shadow. Now what did that "stone  mowitch" do to-day, anyhow?  Four short plays will be put on by  C. P. AValker's Lyceum Players.  While each play under the circumstances must be short they are nevertheless claimed to contain qualities  which make them dramatic gems, and  the members of the troupe have genius  and skill to bring out those qualities.  Miss Emily Jackson, of the JNew  Zealand was taken violently ill at the  end of tlie week with an acute attack  of appendicitis. On Friday evening  her condition was quite serious but on  Sunday then.* was a marked improvement and she was considered fit to  stand the journey to Spokane for  treatment.  The Saturday Sunset editor appears  to have found an echo in the scribe  who runs the Chilliwack New Era.  When the latter wants to play the  role of foot-licker be; should seek a-  worthier oxainplar than the blackguard of tho Sunset who apparently  has only to take snuff to set his Chilli-  Avack protege sneezing.  Last week some of those who had  discarded their wood-burning stoves  and put in coal stoves had a taste of  trying to keep up heat by burning  wood in their coal stoves and are not  disposed to regard it as being much of  a success. A car-load of coal which  was about ten days overdue was responsible for the shortage. Fortunately the coal man happened to have a.  fair supply of wood on hand or some  would have been rather badly caught.  The; new matron of the HodIe\- Hospital is Miss Margaret M." Miller who.  had her professional training and.  miich of licit.* practice ill Scotlond, although she has had appointments in  this country both in Alberta and British Columbia. She. is expected to arrive here before this issue is in the  post office^  Mr. and Mis. Rotherham entertained the members of'the.Golf Club at  their residence on Friday evening last  when a very enjoyable time was spent.  To-night the Golfers meet in Fraternity hall for a farewell party to Misses  Fraser and Bond of the Hospital staff.  Cards, dancing, music and other diversions will be provided in the way of  entertainment.  The burning =o'f-. fire-crackers and  general hullabaloo a round the Chinese  quarter left no doubt that China, New  Year had come around again. Sortie  of the tyees also made their rounds  among their patrons distributing tea  packages and other presents showing  their good will and illustrating that  .the New Year spirit is abroad among  them.  The Presbyterians, of Penticton, extended a call- to Rev. W. Miller, a  graduate of Queens^University, Kingston, who was a missionary student in  Fairview in the summer of 1901. He is  also a brother of Rev. John M. who is  well known throughout tho province  having had charge of important congregations at Phoenix, Nanainiq and  other points. The Presbyterians of  Penticton. have madeaio mistake in  their choice, and Mr. Miller in coming  back to the Okanagan after an interval of ten years will find himself in a  somewhat different atmosphere.  ��������� Coasting down the Hospital hill on  Webster street is. now a favorite diversion. The grade is over fifteen per  cent and the bottom of it is the bridge  over twenty-mile. To fail to steer  straight on to the bridge would mean  disaster and the speed attained.is tha t  of an express train. So great is the  momentum that the sleds after striking the level continue along Webster  street on a slight up-grade for a distance, of about a .block and a half.  Grown-ups who savvy the 'sport ih'ay  engage in it with comparative safety  but where their example is likely to  encourage children it is questionable  whether it is wise to permit it. Then  there is the danger to street traffic  which it entails. No team would stand  the meeting of a sled or toboggan going at such a rate.  keep; your eyes on  CAMP H  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

Horn -At Keremeos on Saturday,  ���������lanuary 2-SLli, tlie wife,of Major Moody  a si in.  Miss Williams of Hedley spent, a few  days in Keremeos this week, tlie guest  of .Mrs. .1. A. Brown.  Kiiiieniber Walter JMcraye and the  Lyceum Company in Richter's hall on  Monday evening next, (5th inst.  Miss Violet Kirby is now in charge  of the post office in place of Miss Mildred,'who is resinning her studies in  the public school.  Mr. Gibson of Vancouver, who has  some property interests "at the old  town site, has been spending a few  days in Keremeos this week.  Mr. 0. H. Carle is spending the  greater portion of his time in Princeton these days in connection with his  business interests theie.  A party of Kettle. Valley surveyors  came in on Tuesday and detrained  here. They were evidently on their  way to Penticton, but their presence  in tiie valley, looks good at any time  Keremeos is still without a barber  (Meg pardon, Charley. We forgot),  "Fish", who left some time ago on a  trip to Vancouver having failed to return up to date.  Rev. Mr. Cleland conducted service  here, .Sunday, morning and evening.  While tlie congregations now are not  as large-as they used to be Mr. Cle-  la nil's visits are none the less appreciated.  H. B. Measette was in Princeton on  Friday looking up some contract  work. Harry is a first class workman  and our friends up the valley might  go farther and fare much worse than  by engaging hitii.  Fruit-growers should keep in mind  the lectures and demonstrations in  connection with fruit growing to be  given here on Monday and Tuesday  next and be on hand prepared to pro-  lit by the information to be had.  Mr. Spencer and family left on Tuesday for Ontario where they will nia'ke  their residence. Mr. Spencer has been  a good citizen and we regret their de-  departure from the valley. We trust  however that they may find life in old  Ontario all that they hope for.  There were, big doings in Chinatown  the beginning of the week, the occasion being the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Unlike ours the celebration usually lasts anywhere from a  week to a month: but then it is the  only holiday in the whole year that  they celebrate.  Mrs. A. C. Kennedy returned this  week from a visit to her friends in  California. On her way out she had  thc- misfortune to be in the Great  Northern train wreck at Summit, thus  givinsr some excitement to mix with  the pleasure of the visit.  Sain Manery and bride, arrived here  on Thursday afternoon on their return from their honeymoon trip and  drove down to the home of the groom's  parents Mr. and Mrs. Win. Manery.  On the following evening a large party  of young people from here formed a  sleighing party and drove down and  called upon them.  Reciprocity negotiations is tlie all  engrossing topic of conversation in  tills* district. Even our leading liberal  is having a hard time to convince, himself (to say nothing of others) that it  is alright. While we do not wish to  appear pessimistic still we cannot help  thinking that the commissioners, in  making their concessions to the Prairie  farmer have dealt British Columbia a  crushing blow. That there is method  in their madness cannot be doubted as  tlie liberal party have nothing to lose  in British Columbia and much that  they are anxious to hold in the prairie  provinces. It all points to a federal  election within tlie year.  Engineers on thc route of the Kettle  Valley railroad tell of some hold np  tactics on the part of ranchers along  the right-of-way which equal some of  the stunts in this valley in the construction days and were equally successful. In one instance a rancher,  looking for indemnity, pulled up his  fruit trees and planted them where he  believed the right-of-way was to go,  only to find that it eventually passed  through the ground from which he  had removed the trees. Another built  a large barn on the supposed right-of-  way and nearly died of chagrin when  he found that the road .side stepped it.  'Mr, Editor; you took us up wrong  in regard to our statement last week  that most of the readers of the Gazette  did not- get their papers until Friday.  We did not mean to imply,that it was  owing to any neglect on the part of  the post-office officials here, but to tlie  fact that many of the readers living  at some little distance from the post  office do not trouble to call for the  evening mail from up the valley. We  do not know of a single instance in  which the copies of the Gazette were  not sorted in the post office here on  Thursday evening within a few in in  utes after the arrival of the train.  During the week no fewer tlian three  petitions have been passed around for  signatures. One hailing from Fair-  view asks for a. change in the location  of the Kerenieos-Fairview road in the  vicinity of the.Stemwinder.-mine; one  from claim owners at the Apex asks  for a. wagon road up Cedar creek to  the summit and another, started rolling by D. McCurdy, asks the government to refrain from granting separate schools to Chinese, as requested by  the Trades and Labor Union.  J. A.
