OH,  this is only February;   this is too flue  to last."   It is quite true, it was "only  February," but nevertheless it was no  finer 'than the normal Similkameen  weather for the third week in February.   Look at the meteorological report for the week and compare it-with  the. corresponding week of last year.  The mean temperature at Hedley for  the week ending Feb. 23rd is only 33.71  as against 37.85 for the corresponding  week of last year.   The trouble is that  this winter has been so altogether ix  freak,  and the. disparity between it  and the normal so great that we forget, and do not seeni to know that  when we get a week like the last, we  are only getting what belongs to us*i  This time two years ago the volume of  water in Twenty-mile creek had increased to such an extent that little  difficulty was experienced on the power question.   On the 10th of March,  1905, the water in the flume was driving the generators, the large compressor,    the   whole, forty    stamps   and  everything else that had power hitched  on  to it.     In 1906 it was the third  week in March that was the freak, the  mean temperature for that week being  as low as 22.14 degrees,  while  that of  the three weeks preceding it showed  an average of about 37. .    ,  A meeting, well attended by the  fruit growers of the Siniilkameen valley, was held in the school house,  Keremeos, on Saturday afternoon, the  23rd inst. The principal objeet of the  meeting was the election of officers for  the Similkameen Farmers' Exchange,  which has lately been incorporated  for the purpose of authorizing the association to do a co-operative" business as a commercial institution.  The names appearing in the British.  Columbia Gazette as incorporators  are: F. Jlichter, W. H. Armstrong,  J. J. Armstrong, Rev. A. H. Cameron,  .7. R. Shaw, K. A. Mattice', J. Mattice,'  R. .-Ehhhii>st, J. Elmhirst,;. G.- Kirbyv  and D. F. Jelly.  Since incorporation, the following  have become members of the Ex-,  change: O. V. Wilson, D.'J. Innis, J.  D. Hunt, G. B. Murphy, A.-Morrison,  .T. C. Woodrow, H. W. Brown, G. C.  Armstrong'and John Thompson.  The people'' here are very enthusiastic oyer the -future prospects of the  Similkameen Valley.   The fruit grown  last summer in the orchards of Mr.  Richter, Mr. Webster, Mr. Armsti'oiig,  Mrs. Daley and Airs. Lowe *������yas a revelation to most people.   Tlie fruit was  produced in great quantity and we believe the quality can not be. excelled  any place, and can be equalled in very  few places.    Peaches, apricots, grapes,  pears, plums and cherries of the choicest and most delicate varieties  were  produced in abundance.    Any person  who has ever been in Keremeos knows  that the apples cannot be beaten anv-  where.   All vinous products, such as  water and musk melons,   pumpkins,  squash, vegetable marrows, citron and  cucumbers, grow to perfection.    Peanuts were tried on a small scale, with  good results and very likely will be  largely grown Here in the future.    To-  METEOROLOGICAL.  JftS. GLftRKE  Watchmaker  HEDLEY.B.C.

Please  miatoes were simply immense, and as  great a success as anybody could wish  for. Corn, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, beets, turnips, parsnips, onions; in fact, all garden stuff,  roots and vegetables have done splendidly.        '   . .  The young trees that were planted  here the last two years, about 1,500 in  all,    have    made   very    satisfactory  growth.      A   large   number  will   be  planted this spring, so  that it seems  very probable that this part of the  Similkameen,   with  Keremeos   as   a  centre, will eventually become one of  the   most  important  and   successful  fruit growing sections in the Dominion  of Canada,    Realizing this and recognizing that it is of'the utmost importance to British Columbia that   the  fruit industry, which is bound to be  one of the leading industries of the  country in the future,  should be protected from the ravages of insect pests  and fungous diseases, that have caused  such an  enormous outlay of time and  money in the older portions of Canada  and also of the United States.    It was  resolved to ask the B. 0. Government  to appoint a local inspector of fruit,  whose duty it would be to make a periodical inspection of every orchard in  the-vicinitv and thus prevent any diseases from getting a permanent foothold  in  the district.    In this the old  adage, "An ounce of prevention &c,"  is especially applicable.  The following were elected directors:  F. Richter, Rev. A. H. Cameron, J. R.  Shaw, K. A. Mattice, R. Elmhirst, O.  V. Wilson and O. J. Innis.  At a subsequent meeting of the directors, F. Richter was elected president; Rev. A. H. Cameron, vice-president, and D. F. Jelly, secretary-  treasurer.  And still no movement is made for  resuming grading operations on the  V. V. <fc E. in the Similkameen.  The district in which the field work  was this season  carried out was that  portion   of the  Similkameen  Mining  division   of  British   Columbia,  lying  about and to the south of the town of  Princeton; the object being to coin  mence a topographic and geologic survey of a sheet,  which shall embrace  the" whole, of the Similkameen district,  to be eventually published on a scale  of four miles to the inch with a contour interval of 200 feet;    Interest in  this section of southern British Columbia has been greatly increased in the  last year or two by the probability of  its being shortly traversed by one, if  [ not two, separate lines of railway; and  although it has long been  known to  contain valuable deposits of gold,  silver,  copper,   platinum  and coal,  the  lack Of lines of communication with|  markets for these pioducts prevented  any  extensive development of these  deposits.   With the advent of the rail-'  way. however, the country has a promising future,  and already some of  the principal claim owners are making  preparations to open up their properties with a view to the shipping of ore'  in the near future.  The lack of any detailed geologic information has been a great drawback  to the prospectors iu the district, for  up to this year no attempt has been  made by this Department to do much  geological work since the publication  of Dr. Dawson's map in 1877.  ; The field work requisite for the compilation of a suitable, map of the whole  district must of necessity occupy several seasons, so that,  to satisfy the  immediate claims   of the district, it  was deemed best to confine the work  of this session to the more important  sections where economic minerals had  been   discovered and mineral claims  located.    Commencing on the boundary line, where it crosses the Pasayton,  and tying on to two prominent monuments- of   the  Boundary  Survey,   a  skeleton triangulation was run northward to Princeton, taking in a belt of  five miles on either side of the Similkameen river.    The mineralized areas  of Roche river, Copper and Kennedy  mountain camps were connected together on this skeleton;  and the geology of these camps studied move carefully  than  the "'rest of the   country.  The boundaries of the Tertiary coal  basin about Princeton were defined,  and this, with the Copper Mountain |  camp,  was plotted on a topographic  map of half a mile to  the inch with  100 foot contours.  The early part of June was very  wet, but no ram fell from the end of  June until early in September, so that  the push fires which started at the end  of July remained unchecked for several weeks, during which the pall of  smoke rendered it impossible to carry,  on the work of triangulation. For  this reason the original intention of  carrying the triangulation up the Tu-  lanieen river from Princeton had to be  abandoned, and the important camps  of Bear creek, Boulder creek and  Champion creek in this section were  only done geologically, and not connected up with the other camps.  Both in the topographical and geographical work Mr. J. x\. Allen rendered material aid and made a very  efficient assistant.  On May 2S, I arrived at Penticton  where a pack train and outfit were obtained, and from here the journey of  seventy-five miles to Princeton was  made on horseback. The latter place  was selected as headquarters for the  season. Though it is quite, possible to  continue the field work in the eastern  part of the district well on into October, operations were suspended in  September, aud on the 25th of that  month I left Penticton for Rossland,  ���������Phoenix and Greenwood, where some  days were spent in a comparative examination of their ore bodies with  those which I found in the Similkameen district.  The Similkameen river forks at the  town of Princeton, the west branch  being known as the Tulameen and the  south branch as the South Similkameen. Twenty miles up the South  Similkameen again forks,  dividing in-  A SETTLER'S SAD END.  John Link,   Rancher and Miner,  Meets  Death on   His  Ranch  on  Kettle  River.  John Link, a Swiss who owned a  ranch and a mineral claim high up on  the mountain on the west side of Kettle river and about four or five miles  from Rock Creek was found dead near  his cabin about two weeks ago. Link  was without exception one of the most-  industrious men in the country. On  his mineral claim there Avas work  done by. himself equal in amount to  that done on many properties on  which over $20,000 had been spent.  On his ranch, also done by himself, a  large amount of clearing, fencing,  graded roads, large bank barn and  other out-buildings was to be found;  while for the.last few; years the acreage Which he had in crop each year  was large!  The exact cause of his death will  never be known but it is believed to  have, been due to some powder accident  of some kind or cither. . A hole was  found in his forehead which is reported  to.have resembled that inflicted by a  detonator.   Men' who -handle explosives for.a-long time often "become insensible to the danger connected with  it. and take risks that they should not.  On the other hand, explosives have  been known to go off for no apparent  cause, and the  result   be  equally as  death-dealing. ��������� What may have" happened to poor Link no cine may ever  know; but anyone who has gone  over  his place as the writer has done,  and  seen what the m'an has accomplished  cannot help being all the more impressed with the sadness of the calamity,  and must honor him in death as in life.  Though living much alone, he was no  misanthrope.' but light-hearted, jovial  and sanguine to the last degree.  FAIRVIEW NOTES.  Continued on Page Four.  Mr. T. D. Pickard, road superintendent, went over to Keremeos last  Sunday.  Provincial constable, Geo. Sproule.,  paid.a visit to-the Stemwinder a few  days ago.

John Henderson Who has had large  experience in the Guggenheim mines  at Leadville, Col., is the new foreman  at the Stemwinder and has a good  grip of the work there.  Fred Gwatkin is back at his old  stamping ground.  C. J. Rippin, of the Park Ranch,  brought a. load of produce to the Stem-  winder boarding house this week.  A. Curtis,.fireman at the Stemwinder, drove a pick through his foot and  is consequently on the sick list. As he  doesn't know how it happened the accident may be described as pickuliar.  Mrs.-Lambly is contemplating a visit  to Mrs Russel at her residence near  the Stemwinder.  The horrible condition of a couple of  old skates belonging to John  Burnett  who, under the tender care of Daniel  Braithwaite, is recovering  from   the  effects of an accident met with some  time ago, has been   remarked   pretty  frequently of late.   These animals left  in the charge of a Chinaman on John's  ranch are so thin that they  are  invisible except from the side.  One of them  has an enlargement of the leg, that is  as big as a cabbage over the pastern  joint, and being a raw and bleeding  mass of flesh leaves a sanguinary trail  wherever it goes.   The other is suffering from a foul nasal discharge,  and,  being allowed to run at large,   is infecting  the drinking places  of other  animals with large quantities of horrible slime.    Surely there is some one  whose duty it is   to  prevent   such   a  state of affairs.

In the east there is a strong agitation at present to nationalize the telephone and telegraph systems; and  government ownership of public utilities is a doctrine that is fast gaining  ground. Advocates of public ownership and public operation always point  to the postal system as an example of  the practicability of public operation.  It is true the postal system inmost  countries is in tolerable shape, but  nothing like what it ought to be, considering the length of time it has been  under dii ect government control, and  that the experience of the postal authorities of one country could be benefited by on the part of those of other  countries, to enable them to correct  ills and perfect the system where they  may ieally want to do so.  Neither   is   government   controlled  telegraph aiid telephone an untried experiment in Canada for it is now about  thirty years since the  Dominion  government under Sir John A. MacdonaSd  established and operated  a telegraph  system in certain parts of British Columbia, becuuse.it became apparent to  him   and his  government that telegraphic communication  was  imperative and that the business in sight was  not sufficient to warrant any private  enterprise to supply the want.     Thus  British Columbia's first experience in  government owned telegraph  was altogether paternal in   its   origin,   and  that instead of being launched with  the sole object of producing revenue  to the government, it was regarded as  public utilities ought to be regarded,  and  that   is   for   the   public  benefit,  whether they produced revenue or not.  It was after the present administration attained power that the government owned telegraph line in  British  Columbia was extended somewhat and  in a few  instances operated as telephone instead  of telegraph;  but the  two featutes that have tended to  mar  most the effectiveness of its work and  make its  operation   unsatisfactory  to  the public, arojthat partizanship is allowed to dominate* and  that the  idea  of compelling it to yield reyenue to the  government whether the service  rendered to the public was such as to warrant the production of revenue or not,  was considered too good politics  to be  let pass.  Government ownership and  operation of railways has had a long trial in |  railway. The first minister of railways to make the I. 0. R. pay its way  was John Haggart iiv 1894. Claims  have .been made of a like nature one or  two years since then, but thev have  been held to have been more a matter  of peculiar book-keeping than of bona  fide railroading. But it'is hardly right  to conclude that government operation  is a failure solelv on the experience of  the I. C. R. when the road was never  given the chance of being conducted  as a business proposition along busi-  lines, but was run more like a political  orphanage than as a railroad. The  tale of the Teniiscaiuing railway is one  of a different kind. That is a road  operated bv the Ontario government  that is giving slightly lower passenger  and freight rates than those charged  by the. big railway corporations and is  yielding good profits to the government, but many politicians are very  hot under the collar because there are  no sinecures for them. -  Government operation is good, but  it should not be done* by political  hacks. Where a, government official,  he he railway, telephone or postal,  feels himself so firmly intrenched behind the party bosses that he can disregard the public the latter are bound  to get much the worst of it.  But to return toour muttons,  the  operation of the  telephone and telegraph systems by the government,  is  one that concerns us in British Columbia, more perhaps than elsewhere..    In  Ontario where the telephone and telegraph are, all in the hands of private  corporations they want the change to  that of government control, and one  of  the reasons  they give is that the  private corporations  may  have a listener at the receiver or at the key who  may use the information thus obtained i  either for the personal benefit of the  listener himself or herself or for the  benefit of the   corporation.     We in  British  Columbia   have the   idea- at  present that the information that may  be surreptitiously obtained at the receiver is quite as bad, if not worse,  in  the possession of the political heeler.  There is at present a strong feeling  that the government telephone in this  province is anything but satisfactory.  Business concerns complain bitterly of  the service rendered.   They can  get  nothing out until away on in the forenoon;  the.y are cut off at eight o'clock  at night, and at various intervals during the day thev. ring in vain for an  answer.   The line is often down for a  mile at a stretch,   dragging on the  ground and  making distinct hearing  impossible.    The offices are not supplied   with   sound-proof    boxes,   and  loungers with itching ears hear every  message   despatched   and    received,  while at any corner curious ears may  be glued to receivers to catch on to  everything   that   is going.     Redress  may be sought only to find out that  Ottawa is so far away,  and months  may  be consumed  in getting an answer,   to say nothing of having action  taken.  One remedy is suggested to have the  Dominion government telephone line  taken over by the Provincial government. That, in fact, was advocated  by Smith Curtis, who made it a plank  in his platform during the recent election. The Provincial government are  at all events closer to the people, and  can be got at more quickly to remedy  short-comings. So 'far as local exchanges are concerned, municipal control would be even better, and eliminate   party.  Meanwhile the objects sought are to  obtain greater efficiency and promptness, and more privacy.   It is a matter  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  'An insulting jibe thrown (hit by the  member for Yale-Cariboo in the House  of Commons the other day brought a  vigorous retort from Fowler, of New  Brunswick. After tin.* charge of hooliganism made against him last session  by so prominent an authority as Wil-  lisou of the News, one would think  that the member for,, Yale-Cariboo  would try to do a little "living down''  this session to regain lost ground. Besides, it is extremely indiscreet for one  so vulnerable to run these risks, for  someone armed with the facts will, go  at him one of these fine days and then  the member for Y-C will be sorry.  The. suffering as well as financial loss  that has followed from insufficient  fuel supply during the past year,  should make the question of government owned and operated coal mines,  a live one from this out until such arrangement is secured. The hand-to-  mouth operation of coal mines in this  province by private corporations, and  the incessant clashing of interests between these corporations and .their  employees, has created a state of affairs, well-nigh intolerable, and the  sooner vigorous measures be taken to  protect the public troin these losses  and inconveniences the better.  ^0K0^0*0t&l0^0^l&^0^0^0^ftl0i^Ft&t&^0  OF  BRITISH NORTH AMERICA  Capital���������$4,866,660.

A Genual Hanking Business Tnuis-  Hedley Branch,  L.

Suggestions concerning the: programme  have, at the invitation of the imperial  authorities, been received from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and  other colonies, but none from Ottawa.  Had any of the provinces evinced a  similar lack of interest in the recent  provincial conference at Ottawa, the  Canadian premier would have considered it rather strange, if not discourteous. Surely Sir Wilfrid intends to  have Canada represented there.  HOTEL SIMILKAMEEN    HEDb&y. B. 6.    The attention of the Princeton Star  is drawn.to the fact that in the Manitoba elections now on, the interval between nomination and polling days is  only one week. And yet the Star, in  December last, raved at "the very  idea of bringing on an election within  a fortnight of the nomination" in  British Columbia. "This," it said, "is  what McBride would style British  fair play." "Verdant as the springtime, even if the season was bleak  December!  Eastern papers are busy translating  Premier McBride to the federal arena.  They may save themselves the trouble.  British Columbia still has work for  Premier McBride to do in this: province, and it will be time enough for us  to think of dispensing with the services of men who can do things, when  our own house is put in order.  The customs department, at Ottawa,  in appointing a collector for the point  where the V. V. & E. crosses into the  state of Washington, near McBride's,  named Molson as his headquarters.

W. .1. Armstrong, in the Lower Similkameen,  played in luck by securing several big  stacks across the line, which he hauled  home when the sleighing was good.   ,  J. Gillan resinned work last week on  the building for his bottling works,  the work on which was interrupted by  the severe weather which set in at the  beginning of the year. . In a few days,  more it is expected that work will be  resumed in various quarters.  During the past week several large  gangs of laborers have passed through  town, bound for the railroad work at  the front. It is claimed by contractors  that there is plenty of help to continue  the rOad oh from Oroville at a reasonably rapid i-ate.-���������Molson Independent.  H. W. Yates, who took the Okanagan route for the coast, leaving here on  election day, had considerable difficulty in getting through. He had to  walk across Okanagan lake on the ice  and he got mixed up in a fire at  Sicamous. On his way back he came  in by way of Nicola, returning on  Tuesday.  Saturday wasvthe first time that the  mail leaving Sicamous Friday made  connections to reach hereon Saturday  night. The Aberdeen has at last managed to make her way to Penticton,  and freight that has been held up at  Okanagan Landing for two months  may manage to get through here in  a week or ten days more.  A couple of weeks ago, the G. N. R.  passenger train which reached Bryde-  ville on time was delayed six hours in  getting from there to Molson, a fifteen  minute run. On their way they came  up with a stalled freiglit train on the  grade that had run out of water and  was freezing up, and they had to haul  it back to Myncaster to get room to  pass.  A queer accident happened to a supply train on the grade, between Molson  and Oroville one day last week. One of  the cars was loaded with heavy bridge  timbers, and directly preceding it was  a car of gasoline. One of tho large timbers became detached from the load  and fell from the car in such a m-inner  that one end struck the gasoline1 car,  the huge stick piercing it and creating  havoc generally. After the fragments  were picked up the train proceeded to  Oroville.���������Molson Independent. If  that particular piece of timber had  been as active in moving forward two  months ago, the rails of the G. N. R.  might now be in Keremeos.  The soft weather has spoiled the  Kingston toboggan slide. All winter  the gang, who have been working over  1,000 feet above the cabins, have been  taking an easy and expeditious method  of returning. They broke a trail  through the deep snow in direct line  for the cabin, and the trail when  broken became a slide, but much too  lively to permit the use of toboggans,  so each man lay down on the slide on  his back and let 'er go. Those who  were more careful of their, wearing  apparel provided themselves with a  stout fir bough that had plenty of  brandies to act as brakes and made  the trip on this, doing the stunt in  about, flvp minutes:.  A masquerade ball was on the tapis,  but it was postponed���������because it is  lent-now. ,  J. W. S, Logie, of Suminerland,  came in on Tuesday to relieve John  Love for a few weeks. Mr. Love is  taking a trip to the coast.  A young fellow named E.'McBaln  was,arrested in Vernon for the murder  of Zimmerman, the Penticton jeweler,  but on a. preliminary hearing was  discharged.  The hospital annual meeting called  for Tuesday night was adjourned until Friday night owing to smallness of  attendance. It is, hoped that Friday  night will bring better results, and  that all members will attend. It was  a mistake having Tuesday night the  night specified in the  by-laws.  Sunday's Chinook made short work  of the balance, of the sleighing around  Hedley. Southward the wheeling is  good but between here and Princeton  the going will be bad for a spell as  there is no sleighing at the Hedley  end and the snow is too deep for wheeling on the upper end.  The work of enlargment of the tunnels has gone on briskly and is being  speedily executed. Sufficient room to  get material through was all that was  required, and a little overhead stoping  which can he much more, quickly and  economically done than sinking or  driving, did the business. The advantage and economy to be derived from  the improvement will be apparent the  moment that any more repair work to  the flume is needed.  >+*>+<&���������*><*<>  Big Reductions  In all kinds of  Rubber Footwear  ^J/E have d  winter  decided to clear out all  footwear at greatly  reduced prices right; now, before the  winter is half over, and done want a  single pair left when we take stock  next month.

Burritt and  Moffat who left here on Monday the  4_th inst didn't reach Vancouver until  Sunday the 10th, being delayed by  snow-slides washouts, rock-slides ������fcc.  Rev. Mr. Bartlett and family had even  a worse tiine of it than that. They  waited at Molson a day to rest, and  came in for a wash-out which delayed  them for four days at Lind on the  Northern Pacific, and did not arrive  in Vancouver until the 13th, being  nine days on the trip.  The non-arrival of Rover's., stage  from Oroville will not be felt so much  now, since'the. service to be given by  Welby's stage after the first of March  will supply the deficiency. The Hed-  ley-Oroville and Hedley-Penticton  connections will be served by the One  stage as far as White Lake. Beyond  White Lake a branch stage'line will  be put on by Mr. Welby to run from  thereto Oroville, via Fairview. The  stage will lesive here, on Mondays,  Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30 a.m.,  making connection at White Lake for  Oroville at 2 p. m. and reaching Oroville at 0 p. rn. Returning it will  leave Oroville at 5:80 a. in. on Tuesdays  Thursdays and Saturdays.  The next few weeks will mean much  to cattle-men. The long cold winter  has already got away with much more  than the ordinary season's supply of  fodder. While most of the Similkameen ranchers had made as good provision as usual, some of them are now  commencing to run low, and unless  the spring- opens satisfactorily to permit grazing at the usual time some  loss will occur. A feature that made  things worse was the fact that the  cattle were in ivor.se condition at the  beginning of the winter than is usual.  This was due to the bush-fires which  over-ran a good deal of the best grazing ground last year up around Princeton where the cattle have their summer ranges. Unfortunately this was  not noticed by owners until several  weeks later and the cattle had already  got down in flesh.  On Friday last Mr. F. A; Ross, general manager of tlie Daly Reduction  Co., received a visit from Messrs. A.  Aeberli and B. N.' Breed for whom he  had been looking for several days.  These gentlemen have come as consulting engineers and are eminent authorities in the matter of power and equipment for mining plants and other industries. Mr. Aeberli is a hydraulic  engineer of international reputation,  having designed the large Niagara  Falls plant on on the American side,  and has also manv fine plants in Switzerland, Russia and elsewhere, as monuments of his engineering skill. Mr.  Breed is an electrical engineer also of  international reputation. Mr. Ross  wished to go into the whole matter  of power and equipment with them before making any material changes in  the plant hero. They have made careful examination of plans of surveys  and gone over the ground to size up  conditions for themselves, and in due  time will give the local management  the benefit of their skill and experience.

Continued from'1'iurci One  to the Pasayton and the Roche rivers.  Tlie name, Roche river, was originally  applied to a.'smaller branch of the  stream flowing in twelve miles above  the mouth of the Pasayton, but in recent years it has become customary to  refer to this branch of the river as the  Roche, while in reality.itshould retain  its original name of South Similkameen.  Both the Roche and  the .Pasayton,  rivers draw their water from the high  range of mountains lying on and to  ' the south of the  International  Bonn-,  ary line's,  their branches interlocking  with those of the Skagit drainage, and  the   Met how   .which,   flows    directly  c     southward  into the Columbia.     The  basin occupied by these two streams is  enclosed, between   two spurs   of   the  Cascade , range of mountains',, which  divide in the state of Washington, the  true   Cascades   or   Hozameen    range  forming the divide between the Roche  and   Skagit   rivers   and,. running ��������� up  northward  to the  west Of the Tula-  nieen   river;   while   the   eastern   Cascades   or.    Okanagan    range   strikes  slightly oast of ..north and lies to the  west of the   Pasayton  and   Ashnola  rivers. The western of these two spurs  is  the  more  persistent and  stronger  '"��������� "range, and its summits show little or  no diminution in'elevation or rugged-  ness of relief beyond the  limits of this  sheet to the north. The eastern range,  however, from summits at the boundary line with elevations of S',500 feet,  dwindles down  north of the Similkameen river to elevations of 7,000 feet.  ���������  Taking as a central point the  town  of Princeton,  whose elevation above  sea level has been variously estimated  at from 1,885 feet to 2,120.  and  which  lies in a  shallow depression  occupied  by Tertiary sedimentary rocks,  there  ��������� is a marked rise, in the slope of the  lines radiating to the west, south and  east, while a gradient to the north.is  almost imperceptible.   In  this curve  the hills have- all  been worn down below the limit of intense alpine erosion  and  appear  as   rounded   ridges- and  dome-shaped summits of gradually increasing elevation towards the circumference.    Only towards the periphery  of this curve tl6 the summits attain an  elevation  greater than the tree line,  which in this district is apyroximately  7,000 feet above sea level, but except in  the immediate   vicinity of Princeton  these are  usually well wooded  with  spruce,  pine,   balsam  and   tamarack.  This rounded outline and regularity of  form, while in the main due to erosion,  is also in part the result of the filling  in of old  irregularities of the surface  by the Tertiary lava flows which still  cover such a large proportion  of the  surface.    Glacial  action���������both the action of erosion as well as deposition���������  has also been instrumental in reducing  the vertical relief.  Many evidences of recent development in the . topography occur. The  south Similkameen from the Pasayton  to the Whipsaw creek occupies a deep  narrow V-shaped Valley indicative of  a comparatively recent uplift, which  imparts to this portion of the stream  increased vigor and power of erosion.  The valley of the Tulameen also, above  Otter creek, as well as many of its tributaries, is very narrow and steep,  showing that the drainage has not.  been verv long in operation since the  change in elevation.  Numbers of terraces and deposits of  gravel also occur at various elevations  to a height of 1.100 feet above the  piesent level of the lowest ones.'. As a  rule the. higher of*. these only now  occur as small remnants of more extensive terraces, formed in the period  immediately following on the disappearance of the Cordilleran glacier,  and which have since been reduced in  size by the ordinary atmospheric  agencies of erosion. Or by the action  of streams which are now far below  them. These are the most apparent  evidences of comparatively recent  changes of level.  Accompanying the changes of level  and either a direct result of  them,  or  of the blocking of ancient channels by  recent volcanic flows, have  been some  striking   changes   of  drainage.    The  most marked  instance of this is  the  cleep wide valley of Wolf creek,  now  occupied bv a stream inconsistent with  the size of the valley.     It seems  probable that this valley, with its continuation    through   Swelter   lake, 'once  carried a great part of the drainage of  the  Similkameen   river   which   now  flows through the Tertiarv basin about  Princeton.     All  the smaller streams  entering the south side of this valley  occupy hanging valleys, so that they  debouch in  waterfalls, or have been  forced  to cut deep  canyons down  to  the level of the trunk valley.
