Although the length of time  The Greenwood Board of Trade have  apparently decided to launch a little  sensation  of their own, by passing a  long-winded resolution setting forth  the perfidy of the Great .Northern in  failing to  build the  branch  between  Midway and   Greenwood;   and   they  even go so fur as to say that no extension of time is to be given to complete  the unfinished portion between Princeton and the coast until the branch between Midway' and   Greenwood   has  first been built.  We are- all ready to admit that it is  exceedingly annoying to have promises  broken and  hopes raised only  tb.be  dashed again to the ground as they  were in  Greenwood's case in the matter of that local branch,  for the Great  Northern obtained charter rights to  build   from    Midway  to' Greenwood  located a line; and gave Greenwood to  believe   that   actual   building   would  follow   shortly' after    Midway   was  reached.

BOX 00(i  Vancouver, - ��������� B. C. I  have been too short tho var.ous committees   including   the   ticket   sellers-  worked with a will'and .when the evening came everything was in readiness.  ���������  The residents of the valley responded heartily and   many   tickets were  bought where the purchasers were unable to be present.   Nevertheless the  large   upper  storey   over' Shatford's  store, where .the dance was held, was  well-filled and if all who benight had  put in an , appearance there would undoubtedly have been a crush.  Keremeos, as they have always done,  turned outin Iarge.,numbersand Princeton also  had   a, fair  representation.  Among those noticed from Keremeos  were: Mrs. Frank Rich ter--.Mrs. E. M.  Daly and Miss  Corrigan. Mrs. J. A.  Brown,  Mrs. J.'.D.  Innis,  Miss.Ella  Innis and Miss Annie Innis, Miss May  Smitheram and Miss Lily Smitheram,  Mr.   and   Mrs.   B. H.    Carmichael  Miss Ethel Bromley and Messrs. J. A.  Brown,  Will Richter. P. Bromley, K.  G. Hankinson, George Cawston, Ralph  Quin.ton, G. Keeler,  F. H. Parsons, of  Olalla, L.Robertson.  From Princeton were Mrs. Marlowy  Mis������ Norah Lyall and Miss Alice  Allison and Messrs. J. J. McDonald,  Bert Thomas Dr. Lazier.  The Nickel Plate mine sent down a  strong contingent, almost every man  who could manage to get away, being  present and Hedley was out in force.  The decoration committee spared no  pains to put the hall in holiday garb  and pretty effects were produced that  harmonized with the gay costumes of  the maskers.  Among the characters impersonated  were some that we're aptly made up  and aptly sustained and others which  classified  through  the various gradations of good,  bad and indifferent to  the  utterly nondescript.   The judges  chosen  were Mrs. Revely and Messrs. I  J.  A.  Brown,  of Keremeos,  and R.  Wheeler, of Hedley.   They had a diffi-'  cult task to perform and this was not  lessened by  the fewness of the prizes  and the large number competing, for  the only  prizes given  were for best  sustained character,  ladies,  and best  sustained character,   gentlemen.     In  such a position sensitiveness would be  an inconvenient quality for a judge to  possess for  there  is  bound to be difference of opinion between judges and  competitors and even the rankest, out-  VERNON,   _d.

Brown had the advantage of the other  judges who had not had the benefit of  the hard school of country journalism  to thicken  up the cuticle.    That the  judges decided impartially and to the  best of their belief there is no reason  to doubt.and if they should have erred  in any particular they would be merely exercising humanity's right.  In addition to the prizes they awarded, the  Gazette    is   foolhardy    enough    and  thick-skinned enough to single out one  other for special mention.    The char-  [ aefcer "Topsy"  impersonated by Mrs.  Gillespie was both apt and artistic, for  it was  both dressed and acted with a  true conception of the character.    If  Mrs. Gillespie had not seen some good  Continued on Pngo Two  was given  is to  be defeated,-   Even  Greenwood herself should be more interested in speedy connection with the  coast, by completion  of the road from  the Similkameen, than the building of  a small    branch which   will   merely  serve to save  thern from .a ten mile  stage ride,  which  is   not   absolutely  necessary for them  to take, as  they  have   had   railway   connection   with  Midway  by the C. P. R.   for the past  ten years, and their present grievance  with the   G.  N; R.   is more'. one   of  annoyance than of loss.  If they would only take time to reconsider their resolution and view it  from .the standpoint of every other  part of: the _ province except Greenwood alone, they would see the mistake they are making. ��������� '.-.'

Shatford, Miss  Ottawa, Jan.21.���������A -spirited attack  by Hon. Clifford Sifton upon the Canadian railroad corporations generally,  and upon  the   Intercolonial   railway  specifically, for causing many distinctive forest fires along their-routes, was  the feature of the closing session of  the Canadian conservatin' commission.  The discussion  of this question arose  in connection with the report presented by Senator Edwards;  chairman of  the committee oh forests.  Although   no   definite   action   was  taken this morning, it   was'  virtually  stated that when the commission  had  emerged from   its swaddling clothes  there would be, recommended   to the  Dominion    government      legislation.  rendering every railroad company in I  Canada liable   for every   forest-   fire  caused by its locomotives.  Mr.   Goodeve,     speaking    for   the  Kootenay,   expressed   the   view  that  the commission  would  be doing  the  country a gre������it service if it would induce the government to get after the  railroad companies, as,it was next to  impossible for. a private  individual ,to  fight a   great   railroad     corporation  through all the courts, however plausible his side of the'Case might be.   .  It was moved by. W. B. Snowball  and seconded by Joseph N. Hendry  that steps be taken at once by this  commission to protect forests from  fire, especially along the lines of railroads, and that in", particular .legislation be recommended by this eonmiis  sion to bring the Dominion   govern  McHaffie,  Mrs. Hale, Mrs. Irwin, Mr. .       .. j     ...     ,.      , ,.  ~. , . nr        T TT   XJ������       , , ment railways under the fare laws  of  Dickinson,  Mrs.  J.

Over in   the Okanagan   they have a  rumor afloat  that the engineering being done by  Mr. Russell's party is not  for the  G. N. R.   but for the   Kettle  Valley line.    The story is not one that  will be  readily credited   by those who  have had the .best opportunity to ob-t  serve the relations subsisting between  the two roads during   the past few  years.  The burden  of the story as circulated  in  the Okanagan'' is to the effect  that an understanding has been'arrived  at between the Kettle Valley and the  Great Northern  to  have the former  abandon  the idea  of building up the  West Fork and over the mountains  into the Okanagan by way of Wilkinson  Creek  but to  secure, instead running privileges over the   V. V. & E.   '  'from Midway to Oroville, build from  Oroville up the Okanagan Valley to  Penticton and allow  the Great Northern the right to running powers over  the new portion from Oroville to Penticton.    -,-'������������������.'  It is an interesting conception to  say the least, whether evolved from a  nimbus of nicotine or not; but there  are'some irreconcilable features about  it to explain anyway.  Those who effect to believe it or  who may believe it, accept it as something to be utaken for granted, that  the Kettle Valley and the C. P. R. are  one and the same; and yet it is well ..  known that at the present moment  the C. P.

That Mr. Russell is still getting his  pay cheques from St Paul and not  from Montreal may be taken as afore-  gone conclusion inasmuch as the grub  that he and his men are at present  living on is said to have been issued to  him out of the Great Northern commissariat, at Keremeos, and went in  bond from Chopaco to Osoyoos.  What the real import of Mr. Russell's presence in the Okanagan may  be is more reasonably explained as of  tactical importance in continuance of  the struggle than as a patching up of  the difference between them. There  is good business for the Kettle Valley  by going up the West Fork which is  the way that they are supposed to go,  but the C. P. R. have done some pecu-  things at times that looked more  like biting off their nose to spite their  face than as doing business on business principles.and it may be that they  would feel that they would be more of  a thorn  in the side of the G. N. R. by  extending the Kettle Valley from Republic into the Okanagan and up that  valley to  Penticton, than   going after  the ores of the West Eork   and possibly it may be that the G. N. R. have  ������i shrewd  suspicion   of  that kind too,  which would account for Mr. Russell's  presence just now in the Lower Okan-  After all the   whole thing is nierelv  a matter of wild conjecture the utility  of which is doubtful.'

Let us further indulge the reminiscent  mood  by following it a step onward,  and noting  the sequel  which  shows-  that a great corporation which foolishly and   blindly follows   the   subsidy  will-o-the-wisp will make as great mistakes comparatively as the private iiir  dividual.     Before the C. P. R. accepted    the   subsidy   to   build   over   the  toboggan  slide   between   Arrow  and  Christina lakes and between the North  Fork  of   the   Kettle   and   Boundary  Creek they were  offered the chance of  purchasing from Corbin  his Spokane  Falls and  Northern Ry., his Rossland  and Red Mountain Ry. as well as other  charter  rights  for   building  through  Washington  state including the river  route  from  Marcus to Midway, for a  sum   very  little in   excess  of what it  cost   them  to   build  from   the Arrow  lakes  to   Midway   with   the   subsidy  thrown   in, and they   failed to take it,  only to see it grabbed up by the Great  Northern   interests   the next  minute.  That  would have  given them immediate entrance into  Spokane, a connection which has since cost them millions  to  obtain   in   addition   to  the cost of  building  the Columbia and Western.  It was a bad  piece of generalship on  the paifc of the C. P. R. but possibly it  paved   the way to  the competition  in  transportation    which    the   southern  interior of British  Columbia has today:  Carl Johnson, Negro  Norman Weir, Clown  A.

The Misses Smithenim, of Keremeos,  were in town last week attending the  masquerade ball.  There was a plentiful representation  of commercial men in town last week  with their spring simples.

Brown of Keremeos came  up on Thursday to take in  the, hospital ball, and dining her stay was the  ' guest of Miss Megraw.  Telephone connection with the station would be a great convenience.  In fact when the station is so far out  it becomes an absolute necessity.  Mr. J. H: Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V. v! & E.

James Innis has been under the weather tor several days with a sore back  brought on by heavy lifting, although  the primaly cause was an injury to  his spine ieceived in childhood.

' "'���������"  The Vermillion Forks Mining Co.  of Princeton are- calling for tenders  for the erection of a mine building at  their.pit head, plans and.specifications  of which may be seenuat the Gazette  office.    See notice in another column.  Dr. McEwen and T. H. Rotherham  went to Princeton last week to give  the people there, all necessary information as to the position of affairs in  connection with the hospital, and  make any explanations that might be  asked concerning it.  A bracelet was found on the ballroom floor on Friday night and given  the Gazette to find an owner. It had  ���������evidently belonged to .some of the  little folk, and if the owner will describe it sufficiently well for identification it will bo given her.  Mr. William Baxter, C. P. R. conductor, of Moose Jaw, arrived in Hedley on Saturday to spend a few clays  with his mother, Mrs. J. D. Brass.  He had been in California in search of  health and not feeling well when here  . -went out again on Monday.  Myrtle McLean did a. good stroke of  business lor the hospital when she  ���������wrote to Mr. Studd in Vancouver to  buy a ticket and received by return  mail a cheque for ,$100. And now "we  take off our 'ats' to Mr. Studd. A lift  like that counts.  Miss Florence Daly is visiting a few  days with Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Mr.  and Mrs. Wirth.

He overhauled it on Tuesday  evening just as it was taking a sneak  down behind the Pollock group about  5:30. Astronomically speaking it is to  be found at that hour of the "evening  in the constellation Aries, but for all  local pmposes, scientific or unscientific, best go gunning for it just over  the Pollock mines on Henry creek.  The Stutts Company are. not going  to give Hedley the go-by after all, as  decided hy, their,ndvance agent when  here last-week. No doubt hearing of  Hedley's leputation as a show town  they made another trial and secured  the use of Shatford's hall which happened to be cleared out after the ball;  and .which gave-thern moie room to  make stage ariangements. The company is well spoken of in towns they  have visited and doubtless they will  get good houses during the thiee  nights they will appear,in Hedley.  i      :  The mild ' weather bf the end of last  week and beginning of the present  week has improved the water situation very much and for the first time  for many weeks the whole forty  stamps were dropping and the genet-  ator running at the same time. A  curious feature in the situation was  that for a week before the thaw set In  the anchor ice quit forming on the  bottom and-the flume began to freeze  on the top until for about two and a  half miles of its length there was a  coating of ice about six-inches thick,  The team   of   blacks   belonging   to  J.

They were  hitched:..to, a sleigh and; were being  driven   by.-the owner who   had   Dr.  McEwen and Billy Rich ter in  the rig  with him.   They   had driven up the  street as far'as Shatford's corner-and  made the turnabout   when the runaway started.

With the present mail service Keremeos readers of the Gazette can now  get their papers bri Thursday evening  instead of on Friday noon as formerly.  Court of revision of tlie assessment  roll is being held at Keremeos Centre  to-day (Wednesday) with Hy. Nicholson, of Camp McKinney presiding.  Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Carmichael attended the inasquerade ball at Hedley  on Friday evening, and on Saturday  paid Princeton a visit between trains.  Mr. and Mrs. J. A. McAlpine and  children left on Tuesday for a week's  visit at Spokane. On their return  they will take up their residence at  Princeton. ���������   ��������� '  '��������� 'i  Mrs. J. YVirth and Roy Corrigan of  Hedley attended the presentation of  "Was She to Blame," by the Stuttz  Opera Company in Richter's Hall on  Monday night.  We understand that Harry Armstrong has-accepted a position with  the A. E. Howse, Co. at Princeton and  will leave Keremeos shortly to en ter  upon his duties.  J. R. Shaw returned on Tuesday  from a business trip to Princeton. He  is contemplating following up the railroad 'builders by opening a general  store at the new terminus.  It is much too early to even hint at  the approach of spring, but the lengthening days', the increased amount of  sunshine and the extremely mild weather of the past week are all verv suggestive.'  On Friday evening last Keremeos  not only sent a splendid representation to the hospital benefit ball at Hedley, but also contributed a load of  young people to a dance at Okanagan  Falls the same evening.  Dr. McLean of Vancouver, formerly  of Ci-aubrook, left for the south on  Monday's train, after a few days spent  in Keremeos. The doctor is looking  for a place in which to locate.  Geo. D. Turner, real estate agent of  Vancouver, spent a few days in Keremeos during the past week. So far,  we have failed to hear of his having  unloaded to any considerable extent.  Kerenieosites need not look abroad  for splendid opportunities to invest  their surplus cash.  J. J. Armstrong left on Monday, via  Penticton, for Vancouver on"'a" trip  which will combine business with a  visit to his mother and other relatives  ac the coast. He had purposed making the trip at Christinas, but was  forced to delav it owing to the home  of his mother being quarantined on account ot 'an attack of .scarlet fever.  Rev; Ai H; Cameron has now a  frame residence on his lot west of  town, which though not remarkable  for its architectural design, is withal,  a snug, cosy dwelling. It is the building which Engineer Kennedy occupied  as an office during his sojourn here,  and which on his departure for the  Coast he presented to Mr. Cameron.  On Wednesday afternoon last the able  bodied citizens of of our town, under  the [leadership of Harry Meausette,  lent a hand and the building was transferred without mishap of any kind, to  Mr. Cameron's lot. Needless to say  Mr. Cameron appreciates very much  the generous gift made by Mr. Kennedy,   and  also    assistance    given by  friends here.  ������  STUTTZ  The J. G. and'Aggie Marion Stuttz  dramatic company will complete, a  threXnight's engagement; at Keremeos  Centre to-highfr; by presenting "The  Celebrated Case" Thursday,; Friday  arid'Saturday nights ttiey will play: at  Hedley and then to Princeton for  two nights. To our.friends up the  valley we would say don't miss hearing them. It is an opportunity of enjoying a few evenings of mirth-provoking, refined comedy that rarely  presents itself to residents of our  valley. The company's bookings sit  Keremeos and Hedley are longei than  they otherwise would have been on  account of an incompetent advance  agent. .-���������  In the presentation of "Was She to  Blame" on Monday evening the rapid  changes from. the. pathetic to the ridiculous kept the audience laughing  through their tears, and ensured a  good house for Tuesday ev.ening when  that no less amusing comedy "Rip  Van Winkle" was presented.  Mr. Stuttz is a whole show in himself, but he is also ably supported'by  his wife and a. strong company including his two little children, a boy and  girl, whose specialties are very much  appreciated.

'during construction  period, permit.ted the'railroad engines  and trains being,.turned on the tracks  here, was pulled up on Friday and  Saturday by an extra gang of workmen. The Y, was the last remaining  souvenir of the terminal davs for  Keremeos. On Monday tlie gang of  workmen proceeded further up the.  line to complete other odd jobs.  H. Massonat, jeweller and optician,  of Princeton, is nt present at the Central Hotel, suffering from an acute attack of appendicitis. He was brought  down on Saturday's train and was accompanied by his wife, whose intention it was to take him to^the hospital  at Vernon for surgical operation. Dr.  McEwen, however, who was called in  to attend him, counselled against his  being moved further at present, and  now has his patient on a fair way to-  wa rd recovery.  A petition to the postmaster-general,  praying to have the objectionable and  wholly unnecessary word "station"  eliminated from the post-office name  of our town, has been started and is  now at the post-office here where all  may sign. It was a sublime piece of  blundering on the part of the ex-M.P.  for Yale that inflicted such a backwoods name on our enterprising burg,  and we trust residents of Keremeos  and district will assist in having the  mistake remedied by affixing their  autographs to the petition. It is being circulated at the instance of Post  Office Inspector Greenfield, who is  heartily in accord with making the  change.  There will be no leader of the opposition in the legislature, during the  present session. Both the liberal members, H.C. Brewster and John Jardine,  will sit as private members, while J.  H. Hawthornthwaite and Parker Williams.will also sit as private, members.  The reason why the liberals have no  leader is because there is a dispute between Messrs. Jardine and Brewster  as to who should hold the position.  Both want it.  In the emergency it was proposed to  consolidate the opposition, and let Mr.  Hawthornthwaite be leader, but the  socialist leader refused to enter into  any such agreement, saying1 that the  tenets of socialism prevented him or  any other member becoming leader of  his own party, let alone assuming  such a position as the one* offered to  him. The feeling was so bitter that  Mr. Brewster refused to second any  motion that Mr. Jardine might make  as leader of the liberal opposition, and  Mr. Jardine made the same threat if  Mr. Brewster insisted upon being  leader. Then the appeal was made to  Mr. Hawthornthwaite, and after he  had refused to become leader, Messrs.  Jardine and Brewster compromised by  both agreeing to remain private? members.
