As expected, the masquerade ball at  Princeton on New Year's eve drew a  bumper house and-wasja most successful affair in every way. All points  eilong the line of railway were well  represented, but Hedley and Keremeos  furnished the larger number of outside guests. "     ,  The large ball-room was taxed to its.  fullest capacity, the guests numbering  about 300 or more, and the number of  maskers was the laitrest ever seen in  tlie valley. So.me ot the costumes  were particularly apt, and occasionally some amusing combinations'wvere  noted among the dancers-, as. for instance, where Beelzebub was dancing  a waltz with a nun.  Hedley guests speak particularly of  the excellence of the music and the  floor management, as well as the  supper.  The names' of the guests  and the  CHRISTMAS MORNING SHOOT  Case against Kurilo for Shooting  Holm  on Christinas Morning was Dis-  missed-Holm and Smith  Fined for Assault  characters they represented were not  obtained, but the number was so large  that it would be a difficult task to give  them all. The comnfittee at Princeton  which had the matter in hand are to  be congratulated on the success which  attended the function���������a success clue  in great measiue to their efforts and  their knowledge of how to give guests  a good' time. " .   ,      ,    ,   .  JOHN  MITCHELL'S  WATERLOO.  - . -,- - ~-������������������~��������� r  How the Labor Leader Ran Up Against  ]     '"��������� An Awful. Snag.    ��������� ' <,������  (Rossland Miner.)  John Miichell, the noted labor leader, is an adept at settling strikes, and  has a well desei ved reputation in that  regard.   Recently he came across an  industrial tangle,  however,  that has  proven   beyond   even   his   diplomatic  skill to unravel.  Tt is the stiike oi the  fenmle shirt waist woikeis.    In  this  instance he proved as   powerless   as  Premier Asquith and Winston Churchill have been  in dealing   with  the  British suffragettes.    It is no  wonder-  that Mitchell failed when we  consider  the trouble that Evo made for Adam  at the beginning of the history of the  world ; to expect one man  to settle ,a  strike in- which   many  hundreds   of  Eves were concerned was a   lorlorn  hope, as it was as impossible a task as  squat ing   the   circle   or   inventing   a  machine capable of perpetual motion.  It is no wonder that John  Mitchell is  seriously thinking of retiring to.'private life so as to let others  settle industrial disputes.  KINGSTON CLOSES DOWN  Mine  Was  Looking Well���������And  Better  Things Were Hoped For  The new year did not come in propitiously for the miners at the Kingston,where operations vvere suspended  on that day, the men all getting their  time and nothing definite, being given  out as to when work would be resumed. This circumstance is much to be  regretted but it does not diminish a  whit the credit that is coming to Mr.  Pollock for the excellent results which  he obtained during the past year. The  people of -Hedley know the Kingston  too well and they also know the company well enough to be undisturbed at  a little occurrence of this kind. The  property is a good one. and now that  the railway is here, offering every  facility for bringing in machinery or  shipping out ore, the present would  seem an inopportune time to choose  for another shutdown. Some claim  that a deal for purchase is pending.  At all events it is not at all;likely that  a property like the Kingston with  such ore bodies blocked out and a. railway at their door will long be allowed  to remain idle, .and when work resumes it will be under conditions that  will preclude the likelihood of any  more such disappointments.  After being remanded once, tho prosecution brought by constable Sproule  against Kurilo, Smith and'Holm for  the shooting affray which occurred at  tho railway caiiip on Christmas morning came up for hearing before A.  Megraw on December 31st.  ��������� The evidence brought out showed  that Kurilo had acted wholly in self-  defence and was in no sense the agres-  sor. " Whiskey was at the bottom of it  all, the parties who caused the trouble  having-filled up in Hedley and carried  off a plentiful supply in bottles which  they consumed in part before reaching  the camp after midnight���������that hour  when the spiiit ot misrule is most  rampant.  Their fhst act ,of .violence was to  compel Frank .Sydney, a peaceable,  sober workman to drink from their  bottle and when he declined to do so  he was set upon by both of them, and  had to escape from the camp half  dressed.  Later when others came in they soon  picked  a quairel  with  Kurilo and in  the fight Smith lilt Kurilo's finger, the  fighters  being separated  by men who  came in'from an adjoining tent.    This  'interference was lesented  by   Smith  and Holm, the latter seizing a bar and  going to the dooi of the tent threatening to kill  the fust man  who entered.  Kurilo alter rolling up his finger went  to his bunk and sat down, and as evidence  that he  was  not the  cause of  prolonging the tumble,  was heard by  witnesses to offer to shake hands,   but  Smith made for him,  and as.  Kurilo  wasseen to put his hand in his pocket,  Smith ciilled out  to  Holm  to strike  him on the head because he had a gun.  In a twinkling  the two of them were  on top of Kuiiloon his bed, and in tne  scuffle three shots weie fired,  one of  which went through the fleshy part of  Holm's  leg and  the .other two went  through the roof, piesumably fired bv  Kiuilo after they, had separated, for  as soon as he was hit Holm quit and  Smith made foccover under the bed.  Ln view of this  evidence Kurilo was  acquitted,  and while  there was suffi  cient evidence  to" commit  the   other  two for tiial.it the assizes,   th" fact  that all the  witnesses would likely be  out   of the country in a few days aud  would not   be available for   the   assizes, and that the local  magistrate  had- not power to try an indictable  case 'summarily,   and- no' magistrate  was prepared to come  here at his own  expense to enable it to be  tried summarily,  the  next, best  thing  was   to  give Smith the highest fine that could  Oe meted out for common assault, and  Holm   a    little   less   because   of   the  punishment already received from the  bullet in his leg.  The whole thing demonstrates the  very unsatisfactory.manner in which  Hedley has always been treated in the  matter of administration of justice.  To go to the trouble of pointing out the  incongruous things that have at times  occurred in this connection and the  unnecessary expense that tin; province  has been put to, is more than we intend to do. If the department of  Justice cannot see it themselves without it being pointed out they ought to.  The present state of affairs is an imposition and almost any other magistrate   would have re-signed long ago.  LOOKS A BIT FAKEY  A Gyroscope Railway To Circle  Okanagan Lake.  Vancouver Province)  New Westminster, Dec. 30.���������Work  has all cady been started in the Okanagan valley on the construction of  the first gyroscope railway in America to be devoted to commercial  transportation purposes. The line of  railway will enciicle Okanagan lake,  touching all points on the shores of  that large body of water. Spur tracks  will be urn to any nearby point where  press of busines-s justifies such extension oi rather a spur track will be laid  to any such point, for on the gyroscope i ail way the coaches inn on a  single rail. ' '  Construction has been started at  Okanagan Landing, at the head of the  lake, according to a statement made  today by a New Westminster business  man who has just leturned from Vernon. While in the Okanagan he viewed the start of operations and it is the  intention of the building company to  push construction so that the line'may  lie leady for business during the com1  ing summer.  The stiong point about gvioscope  railway is the low cost of construction  as compared with double tiack steam  or electiic lines, but a single mil hav  ing to be laid and therebeincrno necessity to take even steep giados into  consideration���������grades being eaten up  by the gyroscope as easily as its equilibrium is kept on a single band of  steel tiack.  'Another featui'e in favor of the  gyroscope is the high speed which  may be maintained, it being declared  that 70 miles an hour can be kept up  as easily as thirty.  PROTECTING  THE QUAIL  The Bob Whites Will Meet Cordial Wei-  r  come Whenever They Visit  A few years ago some sportsmen  aiound Palmer l'ike intioduced the  Bob White quail and these seem to  have thriven undei the piotection of  the game laws which the Washington  State Legislature enacted to protect  them. Tt is said that some of them  are seen occassionally in the Similkameen on this side of the line, and it is  hoped that British Columbia sportsmen would recognize the desirability  of lefiaining from shooting any of  them even if our game laws here did  not prohibit the killing of them ; but  our. own game laws do protect them  at all seasons of the year. The intent  of the Washington game laws seem to  have been to regard them as a game  bird and protect them for a few years  to allow them to increase,; but our law"  puts them on the same plane as tho  robin and the lark, and protects them  on more esthetic grounds.  TO OUR ADVERTISERS  With this issue our leaders will  notea slightly diffeient anangement  in the make-up and contents of the  Gazette. By it, one of our pages is  given exclusively to Keremeos matter  and business announcements. This has  been caused by the Chi oniric suspending publication, a move on its publisher's part which is nothing to his  discredit, but, on the contrary, gives  evidence of his sound business sense  as well as consideration for his patrons in not wishing to bin den them  with further mainntenance.  Dining the past two years the Chronicle and its management has givon  Kereineos a well-conducted paper, and  tlie permit* of Kereineos,did theii part  to make the Chronicle what it' was by  according to it a.Joyal support. A  stage, however, has been'reached in  the affairs of the place when the paper  could only be maintained in one of  two ways���������either kept going at a loss  to its publisher or suppoi ted by a portion'of the business community at a  pace not only bmdensome to ihem  but out of propoition to the benefit  which they could hope to receive from  the amount expeuded by them in advertising in its columns.  Keierneos is a fruit-giowing centre  and in a very shot t space w ill challenge  the whole province to produce a finer  quality of fruit ot a greater quantity  to the acre. During the past few  years a fortunate combination of circumstances made it a busy place.  These were���������lailway construction extended over a period of five years, the  end of the rails and a point of embarkation for two years, and extensive  local improvements on the part of the  land company in getting their lands  ready for sale and occupation, including the completion of an extensive  inigation svstem. The completion of  the railway to Princeton and running  of tegular trains to that point following shortly on completion of the irrigation system has taken away a  good deal of the floating population  and has brought on the inevitable  period of readjustment which will  piove trying to business men for a  short time until the new lands set out  to fruit begin to produce and mine of  the balance ol the available land becomes occupied and hi ought under  cultivation, and then Keremeos will  entei upon an eta of permanent pios-  penty which the near future has in  stoie.- >  The Gazette has taken over the-  Chronicle subscription list as .well, as  portion of the stuck and plant and th.e  combined circulation ot the two papers  will give advertisers both in Keremeos  and Hedley much better value for  their money, ln order for any paper  to keep going there  must be  a recog-  Bruce in Saturday Sunset accuses  the Siniilkaineen Star and the Hedley  Gazette of betraying the Similkameen  by not following his lead in the recent  election campaign.

SINGING ALONG  THAT  FOUL  BETRAYAL  Gazette and  Star   Indicted   For  Going  Back on the Similkameen.  Well, Now, Really!  An exchange which claims to print  all the news and print it first,  said  last week :  "M. K. Rodgers, formerly in charge  of the Nickel Plate mini! at Hedley,  has secured the Hidden Creek mines,  near Fort Simpson, for a large sum.  He is now carrying out an extensive  scheme of development."  Singing along,   with the old  world so  sweet,  Blue, skies above and  the-iose at our  feet.

The word "discredited" as  used by the Star, over which Bruce  was disposed to get nasty again, was  really about'thc. only single word in  the English language that properly  described it.

That proportion has  been better maintained in the Chronicle by the business men of Keremeos  than it lias in Hedley by the business  men in this town, and ii.-d the Gazette  management observed this more-and  discounted the future less, the Gazette  would have done likewise before now.  but the prnspe.'ts for opening up of  Hedley mines and working them on  the scale worthy of the proper-ties, we  thought, justified the waiting especially in view of the fact of the local  pay-roll which has always been maintained here.  in giving to Keremeos a. page of the  Gazette we do it without any reservation and recognize no need of apology  to anybody therefor. .Keremeos, we  consider as much a. part of our- field as  Hcdiey, and when at any time they  may require more space than that  they shall have it. The reading matter for their page will be furnished  weekly by Mr1.

Because the people of the Similkameen took no stock in either him  or his crack-brruned notrons he apparently thinks he can get back at us  all by trying to resurrect the Skagit  bugaboo; and it is balm to his little  soul to think that by waving the  Skagit rag he may perhaps be able to  keep us out of getting railway connection with the coast other than along  lines he has taken upon himself to  map out for us.  Now there is not the remotest evidence to show that the Great Northern  have any thought of asking permission to go down the Skagit and thus  dip into Washington again before;  coming back on to the Fraser to enteri  Vancouver. On the other hand their;  plans and operations and public assurances all point the opposite direction,  and give no reason to think that they  have any other route in view than  that by the Tulameen and the Otter.  The Simiikameen valley has had difficulty enough in keeping the way clear  for a connecting railway with the  coast without having unnecessary  difficulties raked up by the Sunset.  But even if the Great Northern  would enjoy any marked advantage in  the way of easier* grade (which it has  never been shown that they would) by  going down the Skagit into Washington, why should either the Sunset or  Vancouver object? If the situation  should develop the alternative of a  route down the Skagit and back into  the Fraser river country on the way  to Vancouver, or no V. V. & E. to be  constructed farther west than Princeton or Otter Flat, and the Sunset  should persist in saying as it does at  present, that no extension of time or  permission to do what has already  been done at several points between  here and Grand Forks, its editor  would qualify as a candidate for  tar arid feathers at the hands of lite  people of  tlie Siinilkameen.  Bruce of the Sunset is a chechakho  pure and simple. He may think that  the affectation of a cow-boy hat and a  pair of shapps and jingling spurs will  remove the stigma of tenderfoot verdancy, but it won't. Pie might ��������� ���������von  reproduce from fyles of the Sunset the  thrilling  narrative of  how tin; Sunset  twelve years ago when Vancouver and  Victoria joined  hands  through their  Boards of Trade to  prevent us from  getting a railway when  in 1S9S D. C.  Corbin sought a charter to  build into  the Boundary  without subsidy or- aid  of any kind; and succeeded in getting  the government at Ottawa   to   turn  Corbin down.  They supported Ottawa  also in heavily  subsidizing the O.P.R.  to build a toboggan slide railway from  the Arrow Lake to Midway the following year and they justified their action  by advancing the same argument  about Corbin sluicing Boundary trade  into Spokane wnich the Sunset has  been advancing about Hill and the  Similkameen, fancying in his chechakho verdancy, that nobody had ever  been smart enough to discover such a  thingand preach it before he did.  A similar request on Corbin's part  had been granted hirn by the Conservative government at Ottawa in the  beginning of the nineties to build the  Nelson and Port Shepherd into a C.  P. R. preserve and yet it is customary  for lightweight politicians of the Sunset stripe to accuse the Conser yative  party of being owned and ruled'by.  theC.P. R.  Well,  the C. P. R.  built westward  from the Arrow Lake to Midway in  1899 and how much nearer the coast  are  they  with  that road  than   they  were  then ?   And yet the Sunset today will grandiloquently claim  that  Vancouver which  threw  us down in  189S    wouldn't   tolerate   the   idea  of  allowing Hill who is building with his  own  money  to choose his own  route  to the   coast nor to obtain  extension  of time to build by way of Hope moun  tain unless oh some narrow time limit.  So far as the   Skagit, route is concerned,  it need not be seriously considered, as it apparently has no part  in Hill's plans.   Nevertheless if it bad,  loyalty   to the   Similkameen   valley  woukl make the Gazette resent -any.  interference  in the matter from Vancouver or any   other   outside   point,  which  blindly and selfishly threw us  as a result the men "fit the mine and  mill have agreed to contribute 50cents  pei* month towards the hospital fund,  which with revenue from other sources  will enable the committee to furnish  at least a portion of the building and  retain the services of a competent  nurse, the concurrence of Dr. McEwen  in the matter- aiding very materially  in having this agreement, made.  A movement is also being made to  secure co-operation from other points  in the district, similar to the arrangement which has worked so well  through the Kootenays, where a hospital was located at a central point in  each district and all contributed to its  support, with equal right to use the  institution whenever required. To do  that in Medley's case .it -might be desirable to change the name to Similkameen, and if Princeton and Keremeos are willing to co-operate as done  through the Kootenays they should  have ample representation on the hospital board. Now that all three points  in the valley are connected by daily  train, the transportation of patients  becomes a much easier task, and the  usefulness- of the institution thereby  greatly increased.  It is a matter which should be fully  discussed at the next annual general  meeting which has been called for  January 25th, and as large a representation as possible from the whole district should be secured. This should  be one of the good resolutions for the  hew year���������not to hold aloof aiiy longer in this hospital matter.  1836  E iANK OF  1909  74 Years in Buslncst  Banking by  flail  Capital and Reserve Over $7,000,000  is a great convenience  to those who live some  distance from town.

THE HOSPITAL.  It is pleasing to note that matters  are taking a much more hopeful shape  for the Hedley hospital than at any  time since the society was incorporated under the Benevolent Societies Act.  The scheme was entered into at an  inopportune time, and had the chief  movers in it known what was ahead it  is not at all likely that it would have  been undertaken. But since matters  went so far as to secure the erection  of the building, it is not creditable to  the town nor the district to allow it to  remain idle for the lack of funds to  furnish the wards and maintain at  least one or two competent nurses.  There has been a tendency in the  past to blame the executive committee  for inaction, but it is difficult to see  where they are any more to blame  than the rest of us. Not so much, in  fact, for they took a little interest in  it and did what work they could with  the limited means at hand, while most  of the rest of us held aloof, not even  attending the meetings.  One good thing the committee did  was to wait upon the officials of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co. to enlist their  support towards the institution, and  the result has been that the matter  was taken up by the board of directors  in New York and the sum of $500  voted to be handed over to their general superintendent, Mr. G. P. Jones,  to be applied by him in such manner  as he deemed best to attain the end in  view. Coming in this way, Mr. Jones  rightly insisted upon having the matter placed on a, proper working basis  before the money was paid  over,  and1  Not Impressed.  *T have been abroad in the best of  jociety," boasted the city youth.

In the way of Christmas numbers  the Oroville Gazette and Vernon News  each did themselves proud and made  themselves and their respective towns  look prosperous. The local press can  generally be counted on to do that  when their townspeople stand by  them.  Regular shipments of Princeton coal  are now being made to Spokane where  it is fast coming into favor. They are  now taking out about a car a day and  getting the mine in shape to produce  in much larger quantity when the demand will compel them to increase  the output..  By the death of Hon. Charles S.  Voorhees, which occurred last week,  Spokane has lost one of her most  talented lawyers. Deceased was known  in the Similkameen, having made a  trip here in a professional way in the  interests of the bond-holders of the  Dolphin property.  There has been no electric light in  town since -Sunday and very little up  around the works, where they have to  fall back on kerosene like the rest of  What little water is coming down  us  the flume these days is needed to drive  as many stamps as it possibly can, although it is days since the whole forty  stamps were dropping.  Russell's party of Great Northern  surveyors who were revising the  line above Princeton have completed  their work and been transferred to the  Okanagair. There they are running a  line from Oroville to Penticton and  communicating the customary thrill  of joy to the hearts of dwellers in the  lower valley who thus see the prosppct  of railway communication in the neat-  future.  Hedley will be served with a box-car  station until the gang at present  working in Princeton come down to  do the work of building one. The  worst feature of the box-car arrangement is the unloading of heavy cases  of goods. These have to be dropped  on the frozen ground, and if a heavy  case dropped that distance should light  on one corner the contents are very  apt to resemble the inside of a mince  pie so far as mixing up is concerned.  Mr. Camsell is at present in Boston  attending a meeting of the Geological  Society of America, and while there  will spend a few days with Mi-. Allen,  who is holding down his old job as  demonstrator at the School of T������'fh-  nology, known for short as the "Boston Teck."  Three zero snaps already hefon* the  first week in January is over, and. yet  we alicthougbt there was a mild winter coming to us this winter. The  flume is charged with' anchor ice and  many of the water taps in town are  out of commission. If going from the  zero neighborhood to 20 above can be  'called moderating, it has moderated a  bit since Sunday; but in former years  not only the minimum but the mean  temperature for ah average winter-  month was supposed to be around the.  30 degree mark.  The train schedule adopted by the  Great Northern is evidently not calculated to promote travel by way of  Okanagan Lake. Of course there is no  particular reason why we should expect them to encourage or facilitate  travel by that route, but it;works.an  inconvenience in the mail service to  and from points up the lake, delaying  the receipt of mails a flay each way.  If it were, known, that the present  schedule-were to be permanent a move  might be. made to change the time of  carrying the mails between Penticton  and Keremeos so as'-'to save the day  that is now lost.  Sid Boone, who . has been   master  mechanic at the D. R. Co.  works for  the past three years, goes out to-day.  Sid is an Al mechanic and is ambitious  to gain as wide an experience as possible, hence his desire to get a change  of work.     He worked   for   years   in  Chicago and other large manufacturing centres and was for a time in the  Miehle Press works where they build  what is generally conceded to be  the  [finest flat bed press that is turning  put high class printing.   His work has  always     been     characterized     with  thoroughness and accuracy and he is  bound to succeed in his calling.  '-'< An effort was made on New Year's  eve by a dozen or more   Hedleyites  who were unable to get to Princeton  by the mid.day train,  to charter the  engine and caboose of a work train  and go to the dance, but. they couldn't  manage it.     Apparently a work train  is easier to negotiate with when  the  road is. in: charge-of the construction  department than when it is under the  operating department.     About thirty  are said to have gone from Hedley by  the mid-day train  but   they  had to  wait until next evening to get home.  Had the work train  been secured to  make the trip those who would have  gone could have got back next morning by 6 o'clock.  The Canadian Almanac published by  the Copp'Clark Co: of Toronto is but  for 1910 and keeps up its old standard  of excellence.     This is its 63rd year of  issue and those who have ever had it  will know best how indispensable it  has become to them.   With the almanac there is given away this year a  splendid map of the Nippising district I  drawn on a scale of four miles to the  inch.    The contents  of the number  embrace   astronomical    calculations,  eclipses, star tables, latitude   tables,  .complete . customs   tariff,    the   new  French treaty,  banks in Canada with  their branches, British army and navy  Canadian militia list,  postal information, complete list of post offices with  railways on which they are situated,  and this is not the quarter of the features the work deals with in its 498  pages of carefully condensed matter.

Sidney Fisher as saying that  "the prairies'offered a "'great market  for apples, and British Columbia, was  recognizing this. But the��������� flavor'-* of-  the British Columbia apple was not to  lip. compared with that of the Province  of Quebec."  Of course it,is just possible, that the  Minister of Agriculture regards the  British Columbia-apple as so ��������� much  superior to that-of Quebec that it is,  not to be considered ;in the sa,me-;class.;  But, considering'thatjt'was a Quebec  audience to! who'nr the: minister was  speaking, and that he referred to British 'Columbia in the negative sense, we  are forced to conclude that Mr. Fisher  if correctly reported, intended his  audience to understand that in his  opinion the British Cplumbia apple  was very inferior to thitt of Quebe'c.-'-''1:.1  .If one of Mr.  Fisher's subordinates  *���������     ��������� ���������       t-' ' . .-  \vei:e to "commit an   indiscretion  like  'that he would not only be ''promptly  called to account by the'.-press of the  country who know better,   but in  all  probability he would be severely .'rep-.  rjmriuded for a breach of etiquette, by  "the-.niihister himself,- ,.,..,.  That certain varieties of the apple  are more successful in certain parts; of  the fruit-growing area of the Dominion-than.in-others is true, but to make  the broad statement' that "the flavor  of the British Columbia apple.was not  to be compared with that of the Provv  ince of Quebec," or vice versa, is cei*-  tamly taking a rash -plunge into the  deep.and chilly waters of odious .comparisons'. >', ';' ���������' . , *  . There are. peculiarities of soil and  climate���������characteristic, nob only of  the. different fruit-growing provinces  of the Dominion but of various local  districts in each of these provinces,  that make ,it dangerous.for any man  to use extravagant terms in making  comparisons.
