( Vancouver Province)  11 if. understood that the Great  Noifhern railway early in the coming  spring will undertake the work of  building a line from the V. V. & E.  railways east of the Cascade range  south through the American Okonogan  river valley to Wenatchee, Wash., on  the main line, a distance of about 100  miles. The final, surveys have been  approved, and already one-third of  the right of way has been aqenired.  The northern junction point will be at  Oroville, a station in the State of  Washington a few miles south of the  international boundarv. Owing to engineering difficulties a portion of the,  V. V. & E. railway extending from  Laurier, B. C, in the Boundary district to Keremeos in the. Similkameen  district makes two detours into  United States territory.  Mr. Hill's programme would indicate that the financial situation has  improved and that he anticipates an  early return of commercial prosperity.  The proposed line "hooking up" of the  Canadian and American portions of  his railway system will cost upwards  oi* two million dollars. Jt will not  only open up a 1 ich ranching and fruit  country, but will provide an alternative route for through east and west  bound freight, thus relieving the congestion of traffic over the heavier  ������  grades across the Cascade range. The  Okanogan river valley is situated east  of the Cascades. The river joins the  Columbia at Wenatchee. The valley  has long been famed for fruit-growing and for its vast horse and cattle  ranges. Okanogan county constitutes  the biggest grazing tract west of Montana. Owing to its remoteness and  hick of railways it harbors many  "bad men" who are wanted in other  states. The United States Government is now building a large irrigation ditch which will bring a. large  area of the fruit belt under cultivation.  The Great Northern is now building  a branch line from a point 16 miles  east of Wenatchee to Waterville, a  distance of 62 miles.    It will  open up  THE TOO PREVIOUS LITIGANT.  HOW THEY COMPARE  Vancouver   Justice  Sentences   Innocent  Chinaman  to   Six   Months'  Imprisonment.  The following incident is an example  of what is likely to follow the practice  of rushing into court on mere flimsy  suspicion.. There is not a Justice of  the Peace in the country actuated by  a desire to deal justly by his fellow-  man who has not heen importuned to  take .cases where there is nothing  upon which to base a charge except  suspicion, (sometimes of the absurdest  kind) and often when a magistrate  with the best intentions possible, tries  to show the unreasonableness, he is  abused aud , improper motives attributed to him. In such ease there is  nothing for it but to let the litigant  have his lawsuit, but when it comes to  a hearing the greatest care should be  exercised that abundant proof be furnished before a conviction follow, for  it is a very serious wrong to convict  an innocent man. Speaking of the  Vancouver incident the News-Advertiser says:  "The unsafety of convictions and severe sentences on circumstantial evidence was illustrated in an application which came up before Judge  Grant in the County Court yesterday  morning. About thiee weeks ago,  Magistrate Alexander sentenced a  Chinaman named Hing Lung to six  months'imprisonment for the alleged  theft of a five dollar bill fioiu a Mrs.  Davis residing on Robson stteet. The  evidence of Mrs. Davis was that the  $5 had been lying on a table in the  dining room of her house and the  Chinaman who had come there for  laundry! had heen in the room, and  after his departure she noticed that  the money had disappeared.' Her  little child was playing about the  room at the time.  The Chinaman swore in Court that  while he had been to the door of the  house he had never been in the room.  Magistrate Alexander said that he believed the evidence of the woman and  because he thought the Chinaman was  The Cold Snap Contrasted With That of  January, 1907.  GETTING DOWN TO   BUSINESS.

I!ATMS   JIODERATK   The Latest Thing in  Mining Circles is  An Epsom Salts Mine at  Oroville.  : (Spokesman Review)  "Judging from what I have learned  of the deposit of epsoniifce at Oroville,  Wash., I believe that one of the few  deposits of marketable epsoni salts in  the world is to be found in this, state,"  said A. W. Doland, secretary of the  Spokane Drug Co. yesterday. "It  will be a valuable find if it is possible  to get freight rates making it possible  to ship the crude product to the east,  whore large refineries are located.  Powells, Weightinan ������fc Rosengerten .  of Philadelphia have tested the samples submitted by F. MeCainuion and  have favorably passed on the product.  The freight rates now are prohibitive  for a profitable marketing of the product, as it'niust first be refined:  "These deposits.of epsomite. are exceedingly rare, and the largest percentage of the epsoni salts now on the  market is chemically manufactured,  being magnesium sulphate. We will  try to handle some of the product in  Spokane, but it will have to be taken  out clean and' white, as we cannot refine it here. From the reports wo have  received the deposit is a great find, as  the quantity seems to be unlimited and  of great purity,"  The deposit is of a hard character, in  the place of fine crystals, as first repotted, and of great purity, which will  permit if to be easily handled.  telling an untruth he made the sentence more severe by sending him  down for half a year.  The Chinaman secured the services  of. Mr. G. G. Duncan to appeal the  case and when Mr. Duncan went- to  serve notice of appeal on Mrs. Davis  she informed him that she had since  found the money hidden away in a  book in the house, and had at once  told the police.  Mr. Duncan applied to Judge Grant  to have the conviction quashed, and  for the costs of the appeal. In doing  so, he condemned very strongly the.  City prosecutor for pressing for a conviction where there was no evidence  to justify it.  Judge Grant agreed that it was the  duty of a prosecutor to see only that  justice was done, as he represented  society. At the same time it should  be a lesson to the accused that it  would pay to tell nothing but the exact truth in Court in future. He regretted that an injustice had been  done in this case, and ordered that  the conviction be quashed and the City  pay the cost of appeal amounting to  $10.  Hing Lung was in prison only a few  days, having been out ever since."  January   6.  7.  8.  9.  10.  11.  12.  13.  14.  15.  16.  17.  18.  19.  At Hedley  January   6.  7.  8.  9.  10.

S  ���������13  The United Wireless Te'egraph Co.  which have heretofore confined their  activities to the sea and the coast because that was where the greatest  profit was to be earned, have their  plans so far advanced that they are  now piepaiing to give the cable and  wiie companies a run for the land  business as well. The following from  the Spokane Chronicle will be of interest to many and particularly those  who have investigated the matter and  decided to share in the success. The  Chronicle says:  "Spokane is to be on the main transmission line ot wireless stations to he  established fiom the Pacific coast to.  connect with the Atlantic seaboard.  "Within the next six months or a  year at most, the United Wireless  telegraph company will begin construction in this western field. A high  power station will be put in at Spo-  kand, and one at Butte, and all preparations made to transmit messages  by wireless across the continent.  "S. Green, fiscal agent for the company for eastern Washington and  northern Idaho, with headquaiters in  this city, announces that a contract  has just been let by this company for  250 complete sets of wireless instruments to be located at inland points  east of the Mississippi rivet. A similar campaign for inland business is to  he made in the west, and stations will  be establiseed in a chain to cross the'-  continent.  "The contract for250 instruments is  the largest order ever placed for wireless apparatus, and to manufacture,  erect and put the stations into operation, will require an expenditure of  $500,000.  ��������� "The majority of the stations will  be from one to two k.w. capacity, with  a range from 100 to 300 miles, but some  will be from 5 to 20 k.w. to transmit  messages under all conditions of  weather for a range of from 500 to '  2000 miles "overland, and from 1000 to  3000 over-    water."

We do not    question  the aecuracy  of this date as much as the wisdom of  it, for one would think that   with   the  experience of two years  ago  and   the  difficulty   in  connection   with  bridge  building on the Similkameen  river   in  high    water   before   them,   the date  would not be left so late as April first  to begin   track-laying when less   than  three miles from   the  present end  of  the rails would put them up against  a  big bridge; spanning the Similkameen; 0  and after this crossing is  made  only  some eight more miles of track-laying  That is What  Borden  Would  Do  With  I C. R.  OTTAWA, Jan. p.���������R.L. Borden, the  leader of the opposition, was asked to-  chiy for his views on the rumors that  the sale of the Intercolonial to' a private railway is contemplated by the  government, and said ;  "It is impossible to consider the government's proposals before they are  announced. The Intercolonial has  been hampered, hindered and handicapped by pull and patronage.  "It was constructed under a compact  contained in the Confederation act and  it should at least be given a fair chance  Place it under an independent commission and make it subject to the Kail-  way act. If state railways, not only  in Australia and New Zealand, but in  Ontario, can be operated efficiently  and profitably by the application of  business principles and the (dimillation of party control and interference,  why not tin: Intercolonial 'i  "That the patronage system is abso ���������  lately destructive of efficiency and  economy is most clearly indicated by  the recent investigation into other departments. That its effect upon the  Intercolonial has been most deadly  cannot be doubted. .But the true-  method is to abolish such evils, not to  alienate the road or permit it to be  exploited to private advantage."

The   total   vote  was 1.117,001. plus 1 he British Columbia  I figures.  would bring them to the second bridge.  If a commencement were made  about the end of February or beginning of March, these crossings could  both possibly be made before any  serious trouble from high water need  be encountered, but to delay it until  April first would look too much like  going out looking for trouble and  there is a current belief that those  who do so generally manage to find it.

These  are  R. E. Gosneil and A.  E.  Scbol-  fielcl the librarian of   tlie  legislative  assembly.     Mr.   Gosneil  was a former  librarian  of the  provincial parliament, and  during the time he was  in  charge  he did  good  work  in  forming  the nucleus of an archive department.     His  removal from  the  'office when the  Turner administration was Aviped out as  the  result of    gubernatorial   highhandedness, brought the  work  temporarily to a standstill,  but  the province  was  fortunate  a  year later in   the' appointment  of    the    present  librarian   Mr.  ScholHeld,   who has  now   been  in    charge  of  the library   for  about ten years, and   has   been  most painstaking  in   collecting  all dtita bearing'upon the early  history    of    British   Columbia,  and preserving the  same.     His  articles on Simon Frasorin connection with the  celebration in  honor of the  memory  of  that  great explorer are most interesting and  instructive;  and  Mr.  Gosnelfs series of articles in the  coast dailies on the early days  .of    the    province   will  be  the  means of preserving much valuable data that would otherwise  be lost.   Mr. Scholfield's article  on Simon Fraser  in   Westward  Ho. is given additional   interest  and value by   the  author's  discussion of the question of  bona  fides of the sources of  information.    And in thus discussing it,  while    full  justice  is  done  to  the historian .'Bancroft the criticisms of Bancroft as a man and  historian while  severe  are not  unfair.    The injury done to this  province     by    Bancroft  It begins to look as if  Roosevelt is going to make his tenure  of office as notable as  possible.  As a rule when a successor   has  been elected in  November,   the  president's   function    becomes  very much a sinecure in the interval    between   that and  the,  beginning    of    the     following  March when he is to vacate the  White'-House, tlie only  serious  piece of work being the preparation    of  his  final   message    to  congress ; but evidently   Roosevelt  is  not  going  to  have    it  that way.    Since the election of  TaIt, Roosevelt has  been  making things interesting in various  directions, and   some  think   he  has not exercised due  care for  maintenance of the dignity that  is expected to go with" the president's   office.     His  scrap  with  Pulitzer    of    the   " New    York  World    was    scarcely    quieted  down until  he  attracted  some  rather unenviable notice by his  conduct    towards    a  party, of  young ladies from  a  seminary,  who were out   for a  horseback  ride,  and     incurred     his   displeasure to the  extent  of getting a calling down  from  him ;  but his latest act to. put fat in  the fire is the  incorporation  of  certain expressions in the   message to congress at which a considerable section   of  that  body  has taken serious offence.     He  has   both by word and act  conveyed    the  idea  that  he   considers individual members both  of senate  and  congress  worth  watching     and  in  addition   to  l.iiat belief had  taken  steps  to  see that the watching was done  by those whose business it is to  study the action of wrongdoers.  It was a pretty hard indictment  and    it is  perhaps not to    be  wondered at that some are  expressing themselves very- plainly in resentment at theimpulta-  tion.

The Kettle Valley line appears to be a concern that keeps  all of them guessing except  those who are "in the know."  Every session of the legislature  is preceded by the usual notices  for application for charters, and  recently the notices took in territory that makes the name  "Kettle Valley Ky" altogether a  misnomer. At the present time  there is evidence that a charter  is sought to cover the country  between Penticton and Nicola,  for that is what the notice says.  When any building is done for  the Kettle Valley company it is  always the C. P. R. forces which  handle the work and C. P. R.  money pays the bills, but what  do the C. P. R. want with a  charter for that piece of country  when the C. & W. charter is  who j supposed to   be   good   for  any- \  Average, maximum temperature -12.14  Average, minimum do -23.28  Mean temperature -17.71  Rainfall for the week   0.      inches.

JOHN  LIND,   Proprietor  days now.,  Saturday night's mail did not get in  until nearly midnight, but postmaster  Gillespie very considerately distributed the mail on Sunday morning and  enabled many to get their mail on  Sunday. The steamer couldn't land  the mail at Penticton owing to the  ice, and it had to be teamed from  Summerliind on Saturday morning,  which made it late .for the Similka-  stage to start out.  Evidence is not lacking that weather changes come from the upper atmosphere. A casual glance at the  temperature readings at the Nickel  Plate mine and at Hedley will show  that the cold spell arrived at the mine  24 hours ahead of its ..nival in Hedley,  and again when the. cold tapered off,  the rising temperature struck the mine  about 21 hours ahead of Hedley. The  two points are. less than a mile and a  half apart horizontally and nearly a  mile vertically.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P. arrived in  town on Thursday hist sifter a cold  drive in from Penticton. Mr. Shatford has been a very, busy .man this  winter. The departure of his brother  W. T. for a three months' trip to the  West Indies, has left the work of the  S. O. L. Co. iin his hands and this'with  the closing out of the Fairview business as well as his Hedley interests tie-'  mantling oversight has left a heap of  work on his hands to jget in shipshape  before the opening of the house on the  21st.  Hedley City Township Co. held  their 'annual meeting in Hedley on  Saturday evening last, when most of  the stock Wiis represented either in  person or by nroxy. Outsiders who  were here to attend were L. W. Shatford, M. P. P. and Mr. J. N. Ellis, of  Ellis and Brown, Vancouver, who represented Mr. Leigh, of England, the  largest shareholder. Mr. Shatford who  has for several years past been secretary of the company, resigned and Mr.  F. H. French was elected in his stead.  With rail connection into the town  so close at hand, and prospects for  vigorous development on other piop-  erties in camp outside the Nickel-Plate,  from this on, the townsite company should enter on another period  of rapid profit-earning.  Mr. .T. N. Ellis, of Vancouver, spent  Sunday in Hedley, having come hither  the day before on townsite business.  Mr. Ellis, who is the son of Senator  Ellis of the St. John's, N. B., Globe, is  an ardent liberal. His father is one of  the oldest newspaper men- in Canada  and still actually engaged in it, for he  still writes editorials for the Globe,  which he has been doing now for 47  Besides there arc very few church  j'buildings in this climate that are fit  I for such weather ; and discomfort, if  not real danger is incurred by attempting to bold it with the limited amount I  of heating which can be done with t.he.j  facilities at hand. j  i  The  Dominion's death   roll for last |  yearincluded many well known names, j  .Among   the   most   pioininent   were:!

London, Jan. 4.���������The London Times  reprints lengthy extracts from Viscount Milner's speeches in Canada and  editorially defiling with the prospects  of tariff reform, says : "The moral of  recent bye-elections is not lost- on the  Dominions over the seas. They aie  waiting now upon the fiscal controversy in the country."  So far from regarding Great Britain's adhesion to free trade with impatience, the Times thinks the Dominions may take this very reluctance  to show that when at last a nation's  faith is shaken, as it is now shaken,  in free trade, they may await with  confidence the triumph of the policy  which imperial causes require. "It  will be well, meanwhile, if every nation  within the empire, and every tariff reformer at home, would take to heart  the statement of the imperial'idea'  which a series of Canadian cities have  lately been privileged to hear. As the  only need of national conditions is to  enable them to meet their foreign con-  petitors, but not to buttress shaky industries which can only exist under  the shelter of a protective wall, trade  should be as free as possible, with two  provisions : that where we can do so  without violence, we should turn it  into imperial channels, and that where  conditions are unfair we should make  them fair."  The Times adds that "Lord Milner's  definition of the purpose of reciprocal  arrangements as tending not to divert  trade from its natural course, 'but to  keep it in an imperial course rather  than another, where both are natural,'  has a bearing even upon the domestic  aspect of tariff and our purposes  should be to defend such of our industries as require it."

Then he came to speak of the battle  of'Koniggratz arid especially of that  "anxious moment" in it before the arrival of the crown prince in the rear of  the Austrians, when some Prussian attacks had failed and there were signs  of disorder among the repulsed troops.  "It was an anxious rnomeut,"  said  Bismarck, "a moment on the decisiou  of which the fate of the empire  depended. V I confess I felt hot a tittle  nervous.   I looked at Moltke, who sat  quietly on his horse and did not seern  to be disturbed by what was going on  around   us.    I  thought  I   would   test  whether he was really as calm as he  appeared.  I rodq up to him and,asked  him whether I might offer him a cigar,  since  1 noticed he was not  smoking.  Tie replied that he would be glad if I  had one to spare.   I presented to him  my  open   case,  in   which  there  were  only two cigars, one a very good Havana and the other of rather poor quality.   Moltke looked at. thorn and even  handled them-with great attention in  order to ascertain their relative value  and than .'with slow deliberation chose  the Havana.  'Very good.' he said composedly. This reassured me'very. much.  I   thought  if  Moltke   can   bestow   so  much   time   and   attention   upon   the  choice between two cigars things can-  ,not be very bad.   Indeed, a few min-  .utes later we heard the crown prince's  guns,  we observed unsteady and confused movements on the Austrian positions, and the battle was won."���������Car)  Schurz in McCIure's.

General Tom Edgar, the first white  child  .born   on  Galveston   island   (his  j birthday was in June, 1S37), once nar-  ��������� V rated his experience as a juror in the  -case of a negro on trial for stealing a  ' mule.    It was in  18G5,   while  United  States soldiers were still in charge at  ^���������Galveston.    The   negro    pleaded    not  ; .guilty.-/ but the testimony  was pretty  clear against him.   His lawyer, ignoring the testimony,  based  his defense  1 upon   the   assertion   that   the   negro  could not possibly be guilty.  "Is it not a fact," he said, "that the  federal government promised to every'  freed-man two mules and sixty, acres  of land? No man can deny it, because  it is a fact. My client has not received his promised sixty acres of land.  He has not received his promised span  of mules. He has indeed got but one  mule, as these witnesses have testified,  and the United States still owes him I  another mule and sixty acres of land. I  I leave it to you, gentlemen," he said, .1 ���������  turning to the jury, "if the facts do J ^  not prove conclusively that my client j A  is not guilty of stealing this mule and j ���������  cannot under the circumstances have -  been guilty."  ; "That argument," said General Edgar, "tickled us so that we actually  returned a verdict of not guilty.

Where %vood is much used as a fuel,  according to Suburban Life, considerable soot collects in the chimneys, and  it is a source of many fires.

Some birds, like all children, like to  play, and Australia and New Guinea  produce the "bower bird," which builds  regular playhouses. These houses are  not a part of their nests, but are con-  structed usually in the shiipe of covered archways of little boughs two 01  three feet long, eighteen inches higli  and about as wide. They use these  houses simply for their games, as if  they were clubhouses. Generally these  playhouses are decorated with brighl  colored shells and feathers, just as  children decorate their playhouses.
