Now that communication with  points up Okanagan Lake has been  made more difficult because of the  delay in reaching Penticton any relief  which can be offered is welcomed, and  when-the ease with which connection  by the Summerland route could be effected is taken into consideration the  wonder is that it had nob become a  live question before now, inasmuch as  most of the road has already been  built.  At the Summerland end about  twelve miles have been built leading  in this direction and at the Hedley  end the Twenty-mile road covers about  fourteen miles of the intervening distance leaving a- portion thatis variously estimated at -from ten to fifteen  miles to build and that the easiest  part ot it.  The advantages to, be derived from  it are many and varied. Summerland  wants it because it will give them immediate connection with the mines of  the Siniilkaineen and an outlet for  their produce near home. They also  value it as a short alternative route to  the coast, for they expect the V. V. &  E. connection with the coast to be  made before the Kettle Valley connection could materialize.' For us in the  Similkameen it will perhaps mean a  chance of getting our mail from up  lake points a day earlier than at present and put us that much nearer a  competing and alternative route to  the const and to other points on the  C. P. R. system..  Now that the most difficult portion  has been built with all the hill climbing done and nothing but comparatively open country to be built through  the small amount required should be  easily obtained. The link necessary  to connect would possibly branch off  in the vicinity of the Golden Zone and  in the building of the Twenty-mile  road we had an illustration of how  quickly and cheaply the road from  there out to the junction with the  Nickel   Plate-Penticlon   wagon   road  LOCAL MATTER  L.

Let us hope that we will  be able to chronicle in its pages better  things for Hedley and the Similkameen than have . heen up to the  present.  Mr. and Mrs. A. Creel man have been  guests at the Hotel Similkameen for  several days. Mr. Creelman is looking  over the camp and endeavoring to see  as much of it as can very well be done  at this season of the year when the  snow is deep on the mountain.   Last  week he had a look over the Golden  Zone and early  this week he took a  trip up to the Kingston.   Before corning to Hedley he spent a   while at  Loomis where he is reported to have  taken a bond on the claim owned by  Pinnacle Jimmy,     Mr. Creelman can  command mining capital and if he can  get;satisfactory terms on any pruperty  which may  take   his  fancy   he. will  doubtless conclude to deal. ,   <f-'  The management, staff and crew of  the D. R. Co. are certainly to be congratulated on the fight they have been  putting up to keep the plant in operation in face of the severe cold which  would have had them shut down  weeks ago but for the efforts made to  overcome the difficulty. It has now  comedown to this that every ounce  of power is being concentrated on the  "rock. The water is used to keep as  many stamps dropping as possible and  the steani is used to drive the compressor to supply air for the drills up  at the mine. As for electric lighrV-  that is a luxury not to be thought of,  much less mentioned either over town  or around the works.  Mr. J.  H.

WINKLER, Proprietor  Nationalist War Cry is Burn Everything  From England Except Her Coal.  [Belfast Evening Telegraph.]  The Home Rule pledge which the  Liberals skilfully evaded at the last  general election has been extorted  from Mr. Asquith by Mr. John Redmond, and is the price of Irish votes  in English constituencies. If the Prime  Minister had had any hope of holding  office again without Irish support he  would have been as slippery on this  occasion as Sir Henry Campbell-Ban-  nerman was four years ago. We commend to ths notice of the alleged free  traders in the Radical party the fact  that the Nationalists seek to tax British imports into Ireland, and that  their supporters preach as their doctrine "Burn everything from England  except her coal."  Geo. N. Gartrell,  of  Summerland,  was in  town this week visiting  his  brother-in-law,   F.   H.   French.     Although he has resided on  Okanagan  Lake from the earliest time that there  was any white settlement on the west  side of the lake, this is the first time  he has ever been in  the Similkameen  valley.   He is a member of the Summerland municipal council, where they  are this year taking over the electric  light and waterworks from  the company which has been operating them.  His   visit   to   the   Similkameen    has  shown him how desirable it is  that  there should be closer communication  between Summerland and Hedley, and  he hopes in a short time  to see the  connection made.  Mr. J. H. Kennedy was in  town on  Saturday  and   bade   Hedley   friends  good-bye, this  being his last trip in  here for some time, as he left on Monday for the coast to conduct the balance of building operations from that  end.   He has opened an office in Vancouver.   It is now nearly five years  since Mr. Kennedy took charge .of the  building of the V. V.  & E.  up the  Similkameen and put his engrneeririg  parties to work locating   the  route,  although it had all been covered by  himself years before.    Ever since then  he has been a welcome visitor to Hedley in the hundreds of visits which he  made through the valley in connection  with  his  work,  many of  these  visits entailing very great hardships  in  the long  drives   in   all   kinds   of  weather.    When he began, his headquarters was in  Grand Forks,  but it  was shortly  afterwards   changed   to  Midway.   To cover the distance from  Midway to Otter Flat  and   beyond,  which he frequently did, was a very  strenuous task, and he did it all 1905  and 1906, for it was not until midsummer of 1906 that track-laying began  out of Midway, and not until July 1907  that the rails reached Keremeos, after  which he moved to Keremeos and was  able to cut out the long drives over  Richter's lower pass. ;  The first work done on the line this  side of Midway, curious to relate, was  between Oroville and Chopaca, and  not at Midway as some suppose.  In leaving the Similkameen valley  Mr. Kennedy and his family leave  many warm friends whom they have  made during their residence here, for  his sound judgment and kindly disposition will-not only make friends  but keep them. Although hrs profession does not permit of long residence  in a place, he and his family have  always taken a sympathetic interest  in the social life of the place and were  always ready to bear their share in  helping forward any worthy movement. The Gazette wishes Mr. and  Mrs. Kennedy and family the fullest  measure of all the good things in life.

The last assurance received by the  Gazette from Mr. Kennedy before his  departure this week was that they  were going to push the work from  both ends. The contracts he said  would be let in a few days, and work  worrld go on from both ends, orders  from St. Paul to that effect having  been received.  Mr. Hale will take care of the work  beyond Princeton, and Mr. Kennedy,  in addition to shoving the building  from Abbotsford to Hope, will push  on up the Coquihalla.  Surely that ought to put an end to  this crazy Skagit talk, and be a sufficient rebuke for- the irresponsible who  raised it.  William McKenzie and D. D. Mann,  and two others of the nrost important  officials of the Canadian Northern  Railway Co., reached Victoria last  week to enter? into final arrangements  with the B.C. government for building  from Yellowhead to Vancouver and  from Victoria to Barclay Sounds  General superintendent Jones  met  with an accident which might have  proved much more serious,  but was  serious enough as it was. The tailings  launder leading to the new detention  pond was particularly hard to keep in  order during the cold snaps and repeated overflows had made  the roadway a sheet of ice all the way across  and over the bank to the south of the  power house.     While going over this  sheet between  the roadway and the  bank Mr.  Jones slipped and before he  could recover himself werrt over the  bank  bruising  his leg and making a  cut in his arm.    The mishap, however,  .did not seem to hirnder him much as  he was around  next day looking after  his work as usual.  On     Monday     morning    constable  Sproule took Andy McKechnie out to  Penticton to have him examined as to  his sarrrty  by two doctors, the law requiring that,  before a commitment to  an  asylum may  be made.   Andy had  been acting for the last month or two  in a  manner nob easily reconcilable  with a sound mind, and his condition  was   aggravated  by continual indulgence in booze, which  he managed  to  procure in some way or other.    When  all formalities had been complied with  at Penticton and Vernon  it was constable Sproule's intention to take him  on to  AVestminster.     While Andy's  delusions were of an  innocent character, they were persistent and were  becoming inconvenient to several who  had to put up with them, and  there  was no telling wheu his malady might  develop into a homicidal mania. With  a little expert treatment and complete  withdrawal of the booze there should  be a fair chance of curing him.  While the preparations are going  forward for the hospital masquerade  ball (and that is the toprc that looms  biggest in the public eye with a great  many) it is pleasing to note that it is  given its proper place by others and  regarded as only the means to a desirable end, for the hospital itself is after  all the main question,  It is pleasing also to note the indications that Keremeos^ and Princeton  are both inclined to favor the idea of  making the hospital a district institution and getting it opened as quickly  as possible.  Already plans are maturing for the  furnishing of several rooms, and help  in this direction has been most encouraging.-  Any expense connected with the  hospital ball will not come out of sale  of tickets, but is being defrayed locally. All obtained from sale of tickets  will go direct to the hospital.  It is hoped that tho annual meeting  will be well attended and that Princeton and Keremeos will have representatives present. Meanwhile it will be  well for the committee to have details  well thought out and be in a. position  to supply whatever information may  be asked of them at the annual meeting, for all who are asked to contribute will want to know what benefits  and privileges will be accorded when  the institution is going.

The Dominion   census, department  has just issued an   estimate   of   the  present population  of Canada which  is exceedingly interesting, to say the  least.    According to this estimate the  present population of Canada is 7,350,-  000, as against 5,371,315 in 1901, when  the last census was taken.   This is an  increase of over 36 per cent, in a little  less than nine years.    In the estimate  the west is credited with by  all  odds  the   largest   percentage   of   increase, '  over 130 per cent., but there  has also  been   a   substantial   addition   to ��������� the  population  of eastern  Canada.     The  estimate,   which   shorrld   be   at least:  reasonably correct, affords a remarkable   commentary   on   the   country's  progress during the past decade, and  gives fresh evidence of the truth  of  the statement   that: while   the   past  century mav be said to have been the  United States' the present is Canada's.  According  to  the  census   estimate  the increase in  population since 1901  has been 1,9S7,685, so that by March,  1911,  when  the  next  count   will   be  made,  allowing for tin.* increase  between now and then, there should  be  oyer 2,000,000 morepeople in the country than   there  were  ten  year's  previous.   This rs a remarkable showing,  especially when it is said that in  the  30 years preceding the taking of the  1901 census the increase in  Canada's  population was only 1,682,058, or about  80 per cent, of what it promises to he  during   the   present  decade.     Going  back 30 years previous to 1901 gives  the date of the first Canadian  census,  although Confederation was not rounded  orrt until  two  years  later,   when  Prince Edward Island joined.    It can,  therefore,   be said   that   Canada has  already made more progress  in  point  of population  in  the present decade  than  she did  in  all  the rest of her  history.    Thie is an  almost unbelievable   statement,   but,   if   the   census  figures are to  be accepted,   it is an  absolutely correct one.  In 1871, when the first census  was  taken, there was found to be 3,6S9,257  people in Canada.   Ten years later the  number had increased to 4,324,810, representing a gain   of   635,553,   or   of  about 14 per cent.   In connection with  this it may he pointed out that a portion of this gain represents  the  population of British Columbia,  Manitoba  and Prince Edward Island,  when the  census of 1881 was taken, none of these  provinces   being   included  in   that of  ten  years  previous.    During the  ten  years between 1S81 arrd 1891 there was  an increase in population of 50S.429, or  12 per cent., and  between  the latter  year arrd 1901 of 53S.076, or 11 per cent.  If the gain for- tlie  ten   years ending  next March is over 2,000,000, as it is  practically certain to be,  the  increase  for the present decade will  have been  at least 40 per cent.,  or over   three  times greater  than   for-   any   similar  period  of  time   in   Canada's   history  under similar conditions.  Of the gain  since  1901,   the census  department credits 1-13,1-19 to the three  maritime provinces. Nova Scotia, New  Brunswick and Prince Edward Island;  439,503 to Quebec, 436.07S  to  Ontario,  and 778,350 to  the tour western   provinces,    British    Columbia,    Alberta.  Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  The figures for the maritime provinces represent an  increase,  as  compared   with  1901, of a little over 16 per cent.; for-  Quebec of 25 per cent., for  Ontario of  20 per cent., arrd for the four western  provinces   of   130   per   cent.    Brrtislr  Columbia's present population is estimated  at 289,516,  as  compared  with  17S.567 in 1901, an incr-ea.se  of 110,949,  or about 60 per cent.  The department,  it  will   strike   marry   people   in   this  country, docs not err on   the side of  numbers in computing British Columbia's present population, for the figure  given appears rat her-low, but it should  be pointed out that in the case of the  three prairie provinces  the  census is ���������  taken there every five years instead of  every   ten  years   as  elsewhere.     The  officials, therefore, have the figures of  1906 to guide  them  in   their  estimate  there.    However,   it  is  only  about a  year until the full census is taken, and  then   we   shall   sec;   whether   British  Continued on Puge Two.  w  ��������� (.-an  I THE   HEDLEY GAZETTE,  JANUARY 13, 1910.

The taxation of mines is  a. question  that, will not down, and every once in  a  while   it   bobs   up   in   spite   of  the  resolute   manner   in   which   Premier  McBride, Minister'  of  Mines,   has  set  his  face  against   tinkering   with   the  mining laws  of   the   province.     The  Premier does not claim that the Mineral Act. of British  Columbia is  perfect, but In* knows that it rs workable,  arid that it gives ample protection to  capital invested in the  mining-industry in the province,and he knows also  that the worst  thing  that ever  happened tho industry here  was  the incessant changing of the*  mining  laws  of the   province  which   occurred   between 1S9S and 1903.    During that five  years  of turmoil and chaos,   mining  capital, which has 'been likened to an  affrighted bird on the wing, was slowly but surely   withdrawing from  the  province,   as   it   always   does   where  governments are - unstable and   legislation is capricious and meddlesome.  Every law can lie abused, and, good  as the British Columbia Mineral Act  is admitted to'be, it has at times been  taken unfair advantage of, and abuses  have crept in, but it is very doubtful  if these isolated cases are capable of  working as much harm to the industry as the ill-advised remedies put  forward by selfish agitators who  would like to resume the tinkering if  they were allowed to do so.  In the special mining number of the  Nelson News it is seerr that Edmund  B. Kirby, well known at one time in  the Rossland camp, is airing his views  on the subject of mine taxation, although it is not clear whether he  wanted his remarks to be takerr as  applied to placer deposits or to lode  mining as well. He thinks that the  law should be changed so as to tax the  small clairmholder out of existence.  "Let the dog in the manger pay for  his manger," sa.vs Mr. Kirby, and we  all deplore the tying up of valuable  mineral lands by those who are unable  to work them ; nevertheless there are  two sides to the question, and . the  trouble with Mr. Kirby has always-  been that he can only look at H.iiiKs  through corporation spectacles and  imagines that no one outside f a  Wealthy corporation has any y\. : ts.  When he was in Rossland he was able  to kick up more labor trouble through  his overbearing disregard of the views  and wishes of others than any man  before or since.  peet that the government will carry  out their part of the bargain as well,  and that specifies a. taxation annually  of 25 cents per acre for lands that are  classed wild lands unfit for either agricultural or grazing purposes, or twenty-five per cent, of what is charged by  the same government as purchase,  price of first-class land under- the  Land Act.    *  The country owes much to the prospector, but Mr. Kirby says of him that  he is a dog in the manger, and that  when lie gets the crown grant of a  piece'of mineral land which he knows  is valuable he should let it go for what  some cheeky middleman who never  found anything and never produced  anything may think he ought to ask  for it, or- be taxed so severely that he  will have to drop it.  This, question-of the   tying   up of  mineral lands is a difficult one to deal'  with, and while it is unfortunate thai:  property which should  be  producing  revenue for the state is lying idle, the  solution will never be reached by the  public expression   of   such   views   as  have been given expression   to by Mr.  Kirby.    "Put yourself in his place" is  a good old rule, and if those who want  to .see the snrall  claim-holder   taxed  out of existence would Only apply it in  the case of the snrall claim-owner they  might modify their views  somewhat,  or at all events find a less disagreeable  way of expressing them.  that time a period-of severe financial  stringency which made it difficult to  secure moncv for building purposes,  and that while work was lagging on  V. V. &: E. construction there were  other roads that had ceased to do any  further construction in this province  at all. The extension that may be  given should be ample in which to  complete, without being too long  drawn out, thereby encouraging sloth.  1836        THE BANK Of  1910  CANADA'S GROWING TIME  America  74 Years in Business.

Mac Haffie, Manager  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  Roosevelt is after- a white rhinoceros  on the shore* of Lake  Albert.    When  , Continued from Pace One  Columbia has been done justice in the  deparlinent's estimate.  If  the  census figures   when   taken  bear out the department's., estimate it  will have an important effect upon the  representation of the various provinces  in the House of Commons:   As is pretty generally known, the population of  Quebec fixes the representation  of all  the. other provinces.   According to the  terms of confederation,  Quebec  has a  fixed, number of members; 65,  in  the  House of-Commons.    In   order  to secure thermit of representation for the  rest of the Dominion   the number of  members from Quebec is divided into  population  of that province.    Using  the  present estimated   population  of  Quebec,  2,08S,401,  as an  example,   it  will be found that  the  unit of representation would be a little over 32,000  for the rest of the country.   The effect  of the adoption of such  a   unit would  mean a lot-s of three members, for the  maritime  provinces,  arid  of five   for  Ontario, while the. four  western  provinces would  secure  nine   additional  members, of whom two at least would  be given to British Columbia.  . If the ' census, figures bear out the  department's recent estimate, this is  abouti what will -happen in the next  redistribution, although the west may  get one or  two  more  members  than  J. A.

A vigorous ticket-selling campaign has been set on foot, and there  is every prospect that' the present effort being put forward to help out the  institution will result in putting the  hospital on a satisfactory basis so as  to make it available for the needs of  Hedley and the whole valley.  John Love, who. has been in Hedley  for the past five years, turned over his  drug business to Postmaster F. M.  Gillespie and left on Friday morning  for Phoenix. ,;Duririg his residence in  Hedley he was one of the most active  business men of the place, and has  many friends in Hedley who will be  pleased to hear of his prosperity. He  and the Gazette didn't always hit it  off as well as might be, but possibly  there may have been as much fault on  the one side as on the other. However, thiit's all ancient history now,  jind the Gazette joins with his Hedley  friends in'wishing him prosperity.

No daily in British Columbia has  shown more enter-prise in keeping the  mining interests of British Columbia  before   Lire   public   than   the  Nelson  Daily  News.    Every  year  the  first  week in January is marked by a special issue of the News containing a  review of mining irr  the  province for  the year, and  this year  the  special  contains 32 pages of carefully written  matter, which gives a very fair idea of  the progress made  in mining in  the  province irr  1909.    This year',   thanks  no doubt to the change of ownership  in the Nickel Plate, this camp comes  in for more extended notice than in  any previous number, and  both camp  a.nd  district are   commended   to tlie  favorable consideration of mining capitalists.   The price of the number is  ten cents, and any one who  wants to  :get one to send to mining men on the  outside should send and get a copy.  Have you ever noticed that almost  every business letter you open has a  few leaflets or folders setting forth  the advantages of some particular  locality or some particular article ?  Well, what is the matter with you  setting forth Hedley's advantages in  the same way ? To enable you to do  so the Gazette has Hedley's story told  for you in a handy little 16-page folder  which will slip inside a number seven  envelope, and two of them would rrot  make the ordinary business letter go  over weight.

He had to  make a business trip to Vernon, and  when that near the Similkameen took  ii run over to see how matters were  progressing and look after a few minor  details here. Like most of the old-  timers who have got back to see us  since the regular trains are running,  he was able to appreciate the advantage of making the trip up the viilley  in a warm car instead of facing a winter gale on the stage. He expects the  Colonial Gold Mining Co. to resume  work in the early spring, or as soon as  it can be done advantageously, and  they will prosecute development with  vigor.  t  ���������  t  ���������  ���������   : ���������  GREAT BARGAINS   in   Men's,   Women's 4  and Children's Overshoes, Rubbers,  Felt Boots and Slip  pers, Winter Caps, Gloves and Mitts.

KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen-��������� Farped for Fruit Growing  Town and Lower Valley.  Watch -Kereineos grow !  Tommy Daly left on Friday for  Portland to put in a term at the Hill  Military Academy.  Born���������At Kereineos, on Monday,  10th inst., to Mr. and Mrs. M. C. McAuley, twins ; all girls.  Dr. Simmons of Greenwood, dentist,  was in towrr from Wednesday till  Mondafy. The amiable doctor's visits  to Keremeos are always welcome, if  not always enjoyed.  The ice harvest has heen a bountiful  one this winter, but harvesting operations proceeded rather leisurely until  the mild weather of the latter part of  last week caused the packers to put on  an extra shift.  Easter, which is always the Sunday  following the full moon after the vernal equinox (March 21st), this ye.-'.r will  come on the 2Sth of March, fifteen  days earlier than last year. Lent begins on February 9th.  Henry Nicholson, of Camp MeKin-  ney, spent Sunday in Keremeos and  left by stage on Monday for Penticton.  Mr. Nicholson is one of the few men  left who Avere blazing trails in this  country as far back as 34 years ago.  Mrs. E. Lowe, who has been making  an extended visit to friends and relatives at the coast, returned home last  week. She was accompanied by her  son Dick, who Avill make a short visit  at Keremeos before returning. Miss  Lowe aviII remain for some time longer at Victoria.  This week a young lady living near  Keremeos shot a full groAvn lynx, the  pelt of which at present prices should  be worth about $40. She already has  a wildcat and a coyote to her credit,  and, we believe, is anxious to try conclusions with a grizzly next, provided  it can be as securely trapped as was  the lynx.  W. J. Stover has again returned to  Keremeos, and expects his wife to join  him here shortly. Mr. Stover has recently been visiting friends at his old  home at Sheridan, Wyoming, birt, try  as he will, he seems unable to content  himself away from Keremeos, and has  at last persuaded his "better half" to  come to Canada to live.  General satisfaction is expressed  here at the information that the Hedley hospital is to he made a going concern. The people of Keremeos may be  counted upon for hearty co-operation  and support. There will be a good  representation from here at the ball  to be given in aid of the hospital at  Hedley on Friday the 21st inst.  Assessment notices are now out and  many and loud are the complaints  made against the increased valuation  placed upon lands in this district,  while not exactly in line Avith the  promise of reduced taxation, the principle if generally applied, will have a  most wholesome effect on the development of the country in as much as it  will make the big land holders sit irp  aud do some hard thinking.  Those who attended the social dance  in the toAvn hall on Friday evening  last all report a most enjoyable time.  The receipts were not sufficiently  large, hoAvever, to cause the management any serious inconvenience in  packing them around. On Friday  evening next the same parties will  give a lecture, illustrated by limelight  vieAVS, on that intensely interesting  puestion of "who didn't discover the  North Pole." Dancing will folIoAV the  lecture, and all Avho may attend are  guaranteed a first-class time.  Assistant Chief Engineer J. H. Kennedy and his ^family, left on Monday  for Vancouver, Avhere they Avill locate  temporarily until Mr. Kennedy can  decide where' to make his headquarters during the time he is engaged on  construction work on the Avestern end  of the V. V. & E. Their departure  from Keremeos leaves a big gap in the  social circle Avhich Avill be difficult to  fill. A large number of friends were  at the depot on Monday evening to  see them off and to wish them all  good fortune in their future home,  wherever they may be located.  Though obituary notices do not as a  rule make the most entertaining reading, your correspondent has derived  pleasure during the week reading the  many graceful tributes paid the Chronicle by its former exchanges, We  thank our conferes for their kind  Avords and hope some  day to again  take our place on their exchange list.  In attributing the suspension of publication  of the Chronicle  to lack of appreciation  and support by  the good  people of Keremeos Bro.  Wright of  the. Princeton  Star   Avas   a  little  in  error last Aveek.    With  one solitary  exception,  the citizens of  Keremeos  and   neighboring   districts   accorded  their local paper most loyal support  and Ave  believe fully appreciate our  efforts  to  boost the district through  the medium of  printers'   ink.     The  towrrsite company was most generous  in this  respect and others contributed  all  that their  means would permit.  The   trouble   is   that   there  are  not  enough to share the burden, development,  or  rather   settlement,   of   the  splendid fruit lands offered  has not  been as rapid as Ave expected or as the  great natural advantages of the valley  Avarrant.     As for our course, of action  in suspending publication for a time  having, any  untoAvard effect upon the  progress of the district, Aye cannot see  it that way. This valley has the,goods  and will win out once it) has  proper  railway, connection Avith the outside.  Mr. and  Mrs. G. B. Clarke, of Vancouver have been  spending the past  few days in Keremeos,. guests at the.  Central Hotel.    Mr.  Clarke is an old  Cariboo man, Avhere he still has interests in ' saw  mills  which  engage his  attention.     Of late years  he has been  making his   residence in   Vancouver  during the winter and spending the  summers in the upper country.   They  are now looking for a suitable spot in  the dry belt in which to take up their  permanent residence and after a careful study of all of the.-.most attractive  districts in Southern British Columbia  Mr.  Clarke has decided  upon  Keremeos.    At the time of Avriting he has  not made a definite selection,  but it is  his intention to purchase an improved  ten-acre    lot,    erect   a    comfortable  dAA'elling house thereon and move his  family and effects in at an early date.  His interests in the Cariboo district  Avill engage his attention again this  summer,   but he intends disposing of  them  and  taking up his permanent  abode here next fall.    Mr. and Mrs.  Clarke are old friends   of  Rev. Mr.  Cameron's  Avho   they  knoAv   Avell   in  Cariboo and it  Avas chiefly on his representations  that they  Avere induced  to visit the Similkameen in their quest  of a suitable place for a home.
