Pure  and   Invigorating.  That the next four years will witness a greater development of British  Colunrhia's population and a larger  expenditure in railroad construction  and major industrial works than any  previous period in ;the history of the  province, is the opinion of the premier  Hon. R. McBiide, based upon assured  railway construction and large development enterprises now in sight.  Railway construction alone in the ensuing four years should provide for a  distribution of ovei':' fifty million dollars in the province,' while in the matter of reproductive} public works the  government contemplates an investment at the very least of five millions,  in each year or twenty millions in the  whole of the period irr question. Then  it is a safe and conservative estimate  that in the systematic exploitation  of the timber areas, the coal fields  and the fisheries at least thirty million dollars will be! invested, so that  leaving out of account altogether the  metalliferous mining, 'which is supposed to be the bafckbone of British  Columbia's business life, and leaving  out also the general commercial development which may surely be expected, there will he fully a hundred  million dollars to be expended within  the province as a substantial guarantee of its growth arid expansion.  Government    Telephone    Line    Makes  Circuit of 378 Miles from  Kamloops Via   Okanagan,  Similkameen and Nicola  RAILWAY TO HUDSON BAY  Sir W.  Mackenzie -and   Sir   D.  Mann  Confer With Minster of Railways  Regarding Scheme.  The completion of a stretch of government telephone from Kamloops to  Vernon via Grand Prairie was the last  link  in a circuit 378 miles   long   on  which  the six  main offices   for relay  c  purposes** are Kamloops,   Vernon. Ke-  lownr; Penticton,   Hedley and Nicola.  Most of the line uses air iron wire  but from Vernon to Kelnwna they  have .a copper wire as well which is  used for telephone purposes altogether  and the iron wire used for telegraph.  Also for a portion of the distance between Kamloops and Nicola copper is  used. The reason why the system is  not all copper- is partly on account of  the greater cost of the copper and also  because the iron is not so easily broken when a tree falls  across it cnrotite.  Hedley office is the connecting point  for two sections of the circuit, viz.  Hedley to Nicola and Hedley to Penticton.  A good deal of the line has lately,  been re-poled and the intention is to  go over- a considerable sectiorr of it  next summer and renew the poles.

Ottawa Jan 3.���������It was learned today at the railways and canal department that Sir .William Mackenzie arrd  Sir Donald Mann,and other officials irr  Jjio-G.-N^iwheld--t������a^*riwthy-<!onfoi-cncc  with Hon. G. P. Graham, minister of  railways, over the construction of the  Hudson Bay railway. The agreement  reached, it is understood, was that a  plan in the form of a contract would  be submitted to the cabinet by the  C. N. R. asking for the road construction on a rental basis.  There is much speculation as,.- to  whether tl.e government will accept  such a contract on account of the insistent demands of the Western farmers recently so vociferously expressed for'actual government construction  and operation of the Hudson Bay railway. In authoritative circles there is  a belief that the government will  undertake the building of the road itself.  Vice-President Whyte of C. P. R. Gives  Timely Advice to Prairie Farmers  In a statement issued Mr. William  Whyte, second vice-president of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, said: "The  experience of this season shows the  trouble is our farmers are '"wheat  mad". They have made money raising wheat and have done so without  the labor errtailed irr mixed farming.  They go'away in the .winter and leave  the hired man to look after the horses,  The'loss which follows tlie exclusive  raising of wheat is universally recog-  ni2U3d^_^Tbo^igi;i(ujltm'ijatjsc-.vt'ii*jogcid  not in selling the products of the land,  but the land itself. He is notso much  engaged in tilling the soil as exploiting it. He is taking all out rind putting nothing back. This year the  company in the West built 600 miles  'of railway, 50 miles being double track  Next year a similar amount of construction work will be carried out.  This year Winnipeg imported twelve  million eggs and the C. P. R. isimpor-  ing for its diners chickens from Chicago and cream from St Paul. This  shows that diversified farming, is a  necessity."   .'  A column article in the Seattle Post-  Intelligencer states thrit Congdon,  solicitor for the United AVireless Telegraph Co. is in Washington in behalf  of his clients arrd has given out in interview that the Post Office Department is trying to screen the actions of  its inspectors who acted too hastily  and without due examination into the  merits of the case. Other Wireless  concerns without any assets or any  income from commercial business'have  been allowed to sell their stock to the  public both before and since the official attack on United Win-loss in June  last, and are unmolested.  Congdon claims that he is getting  at the bottom of a deliberate conspiracy to wreck United Wireless and  that he has given the Post Office Department to understand that if they  do not at once bring on the cases to  trial he will get some member or members of congress to take the matter up  in the House and will produce evidence  that they cannot but take-cognizance  of. AVhether this is bluffing on his  part or not remains to be seen; the  P. I.'s statement is given for what it  is worth. Meanwhile the operating  department claims to have been equipping boats steadily all year with their  system.  PENTICTON BY-LAWS PASS  Four By-Laws For Public Improvements  Pass With Large Majorities  The four by-laws which were voted  upon on Tuesday last all carried, by  large majorities, the balloting on three  out of the four being -practically unanimous. ��������� Everyone who is in favor  -otiho v-WAter system -.would -also; seem ���������-  to be in favor- of the installation of  electric lighting according to there-  turns which show an even balloting  on both the electric light and waterworks bylaws.  There -'were 118 votes cast for these  bylaws and five against while in each  case there were two spoiled ballots.  AN EXCELLENT PLAN  POLICE OFFICER SHOT  Spokane Over-run with   Thugs���������Police  Captain Sullivan Shot Through  Window of His Home  FRACHE BROS.  Fiourist, - Columbia, B. C  E. E. Burr  General   Blacksmith  Hedley, B. C  Horse-shoeing and all  Blacksmith Work  Promptly attended to.  Pipe-fitting done.  After many threatening letters that  were treated by them as a joke John  T. Sullivan, for many years a captain  in the police force at Spokane, was  shot by some unknown party who  fired through the window of his home.  The outrage is believed to have been  caused by some one in sympathy with  the dive element in that city that  Sullivan took air active part in suppressing.  Spokane like Vancouver is one of  the worst policed cities in the west.  Visitors have often noted the scarcity  of police it being a rare thing to -see  one anywhere on the street.  B.

The earning*, this year were  eighteen million and the wager paid  out total a million a month. There  are forty-eight thousand employees  in the railway and kindred industries.  The system extends over 7.1H5 miles.  Such a. large and growing railway  system must become a very important  factor in British Columbia development when the Pacific extciition is  completed.  Provincial   Librarian.  Visits   California  With View of Securing Valuable  Old Manuscripts  Victoria. .Tan. 5.���������Mr. E.O.S. Schole-  field, Provincial Librarian, hns returned from a flying visit to San  Francisco, whither he went for the  purpose of conferring with Mr. F. J.  Taggart, curator of the Academy of  Pacific Coast History of the University of California, in connection with  the securing of certain old manuscripts  dealing with the earlier history of this  Pacific province obtained by Bancroft  in the days of the preparation of his  well-known history. Mr. Seholefield  was everywhere received with very  special attention and courtesy and returns well satisfied with the outcome  of his official mission.  HEROISM IN MINE  B.   C.   Government Grants   Gratuity  to  Widow of Late F. D. Alderson, Who  Lost His Life at Bellevue  Victoria, Jan. 5.-- The conspicuous  heroism displayed by the late V. I).  Alderson of Hosnier in connection  with the recent lamentable disaster at  flu* Bellevue mines in the neighboring  Province of Alberta, has been recognized by the Provincial Government  in the passage of an order-in-counril  granting to the widow of the deceased  a gratuity of $500. supplementing the  amount of the public subscriptions in  her behalf which have recently been  made by the people of the Kootenay.  These subscriptions when completed  will, it is expected, amount to between  $10(10 and $1500.  The  Canadian  Government Annuities  system  which  was approved by  unanimous vote of Parliament in 1908,  and is avoidable to everyone, presents  exceptional advantages to  the young  or middle-aged ''who'are able to save  over a considerable period  to secure  for their declining years   an income  free from all possible danger of loss or  diminution, and at the lowest possible  cost.    If the person has a 'lump sum  saved up which he or she could apply  on account  of the  purchase,   the cost  for the  remaining years  would be reduced   to a greater or smaller extent,  according to the amount which  was  paid in   the lump sum.    For  example,  a man   of 35  wishing  to purchase an  Annuity of $300 at 00 and having $500  in   the savings  bank  which   he could  apply on account of the purchase in a  lump sum   could  then   complete    his  contract  for an  annual  payment   of  $:iS.S2, while  if the $500 had   not been  paid   he would   have had   to make  an  annual   payment   of $71.0-1.      in   the  event of  his death before  00, his heirs  would of course receive back  the $500  as well   as the annual  payments with  H%  compound   interest;  arid if he became arr invalid or disabled so that he  could   not-(.'arn  a livelihood,   and the  amount   that   lie   had   paid   in   would  yield   him.an   income of $50 or more,  he could draw his Annuity at his then  age  though   he were  under 55 or 00.  This   points  out  the  advantage  to  a  man or   woman who   has been   saving  up for the years when they are unable  longer  to work of immediately transferring  any  amount which  they can  spare to their account for the purchase  of an Annuity.     The amount if left in  the  Savings Bank  at H% would yield  an  income  far short of the   amount  which  might be   required   for   their  maintenance.  Information may be had at the Post.  Office, or of the Superintendent of  Annuities, Ottawa, of the plan you  may adopt to make this provision.. FHEC mmmJBX   GAMErFE,.... JiUSP 12,   1911.

It was Sir Walter Scott who  >aid that a- man could not ride through  the public street at a pace more rapid  than ordinary without being followed  by a lot of barking curs in full cry  which yelp their dissent at his heels,  and old Sir Walter made his simile  cover the case of literary dissenters  and critics. If ever a man brought an  open mind to a subject it was Prof.  Chittenden when he began his study  of nutrition, and -while lie 'scarcely  does more than mention Fletcher or  his theories in either of the two notably exhaustive books he has published on the subject the conclusions  he arrives at, after producing absolute  proof, are wonderfully in accord with  the teachings of Fletcher. Chittenden  and Fletcher would have man a clean,  capable, rational being but men of  ('richton Browne's dietary ideals would  keep him an inert, ill-smelling swill-  tub who could always be counted on  to furnish a periodical fee for the  doctors because of constant violations  of nature's laws, and incidentally also  to furnish a fee to the lawyer for violation of other laws. It will only be a  few more years until parents and  teachers awake, to their responsibility  to the rising generation and saner dietary methods along the lines advocated by Chittenden and Fletcher will be  taught in the public .schools and practiced in the homes.

Theheating system in the mill, put  in by Ross four years'age-, is very de-  , fective and in a cold snap like the present is  liable to go out ,of commission  altogether.

All residents  should bear this fact in mind and allow  nothing to keep them away from the  meeting for it is most iniporcant that  the collective wisdom of the town and  the mine should get down to genuine  stock-taking of the situation as it is  right now.

The company are expecting to  start work on this work on. Tuesday of  next week.---Grand Forks Gazette.  The fish and game clubs of New  Brunswick are asking the Legislature  of that province to put a bounty on  ��������� owls because of their destruction of  partridge and rabbits. B. C. put on  the bounty two years ago and at intervals since then the Gazette's big  stink-tight Queen stove has served as  an improvised incinerator for the cremation of many a big-eyed marauder,  feathers and all.  A genuine taste of winter came  along on Monday when the torn pem-  ; ture began to dip and about evening  it had touched the. zero mark with a  vicious wiird to rub it in. Srrow flurries also accompanied the boreal visitation and when there is moisture  enough in the atmosphere to cause  precipitation zero temperature gets to  be a trifle inconvenient.  The dance in Fraternity Hall on  Friday night last is reported one of  the mostsucccssfiil that has been given  for some time. The attendance was  good and everything passed off well,  although the committee were not very-  well satisfied with the music supplied  by a couple of itinerant musicians  whose performance was not up to  their own ..recommendation of their  musical powers.  A feasible explanation for the origin  of the yarn that the corning hospital  ball was to be a full dress affair may  be found in the assumption that the  tale was started by sonic one who  wanted an excuse- to save the price  and finding no reasonable or plausible  excuse in sight had to manufacture  mik;. There was never a full dress ball  in Hedley and there was never any intention of making this anything different 111 that respect. Swains arc at  liberty to come in siraps if they want-  to and the women with shawls over  their heads if they are partial to that  style of millinery.

Walkei's series of entertainments  to  show    in   Hedley    was   that   of   the  "Merry Musicians"  which    held   the  boards in Fraternity hall on  Wednesday night last,   under the auspices of  the Ladies'  Hospital Auxiliary.   Two  of the artists irr  the troupe  had been  heard  in Hedley  before.    These were  G. C.  Eckhardt and Mae George and  both of them made a sirtficientlv favorable  impression   when  here with   the  Musical   Eckhardts in   August to warrant a second   visit.    G. 0.   Eckhardt  was  the Comedian  par excellence of  the  "Musical Eckhardts"' and he was  also of the"Merry Musicians"'although  he was not hailed as such by the printed matter advertising tho attraction.  That honor  was given  by the  literature to Matt Greig but it could scarcely be said with candor that he sustained the reputation  with which  he w.is  heralded.    Miss George sang <*weetl\*  as before  and gave sonic very acceptable renditions, but the audience appeared   singularly*   unresponsive   for  some reason  or other although it is  doubtful  whether  they  really meant  to be.

The   recitation    "Kissing   Cup"   was  the  best number he gave during the  entire-evening.    Whether as musician  or comedian Eckhardt is a clever artist.

Mrs. Hamilton, of Hedley, wns the  guest of Mrs. .1, A. Brown on Monday  last.  A company presenting "Uncle Tom's  Cabin" has booked the Town Hall for  .1 urinary 17th.  Mrs. Forbes, of Hedley, returned  home on Friday after a visit to her  sister Mrs, D. .1. lnnis.  Quite a number   from Keremeos are  -arranging   to take in the hospital ball  ..at Hedley on the 20th.  Those who had their fears that the  ice crop was going to be a failure irr  the valley this winter had their fears  allayed on Monday.  Mr. G. H.  Knowlirrg has purchased  .from W.-.M.   Frith the east half of bis  lot,  No.  101,  and intends  erecting a  residence thereon.  , At a meeting of the B. 0. Fruit  Growers Associatioir held in Victoria  last week, J; J. Armstrong was appointed vice-president for the Sirnilka-  nieeri.    .  In the absence of Kev. Mr. Kinney,  Methodist service was conducted here  on Sunday last by Mr. Harrison irr the  morning and Messrs. Quant and  Crooker irr the evening.  E. Bullock-Webster, who has had  charge of the British Columbia fruit  exhibit in the old country has completed his work in a most satisfactory  mariner and leaves for home on the  15th inst.  Audy.Moyes, who allowed his hotel  licence at Olalla to lapse the end of the  year is up the Okanagan looking for a  new location. We trust that Mr.  Moves may yet change his mind and  remain in the Siinilkameen.  - A meeting of the ratepayers of the  Keremeos School district for the purpose of electing a trustee to fill the  vacancy on the board will be held on  Saturday afternoon at 2.:->0 and will be  followed by the annual ineeting of  citizens for the election of a board of  director's oV the Keremeos Cemetery.  The Merry Musicians, who played to  a, slim audience irr the Town Hall on  Tuesday of last week, were also accorded indifferent patronage up the  valley. So much so, irr fact, that they  were fenced to seek financial assistance irr order to reach a new field of  operation.  In mentioning the names of the pall  bearers at Frank Richter's funeral in  last week's issue of the Gazette the  name of A. Hespeler, of Snmirrerland,  was omitted. Mr. Hespeler was an  old friend of Mr. Richter's and "made  the long drive over from Suminerland  to attend the funeral and pay his last  respects to the departed. .  Province. From the great; Cathedral  j he is being borne by loving hands to  the valley which has been truly consecrated by his life's work, and where  those who carry him will not bow  theirv heads m sorrow, though their  hearts may be breaking, for he trod  the fields and ranges of the Siniilka-  nieeir as became a free-born, honourable, independent man with his head  in the air; and those he lias left may  well lift their heads in conscious pride  of a heritage, and a memory which any  man might well envy.
