Refreshment booths often yield good  profits: it is to the interests of'the  workingman. who never knows when  he mav need   the  care  and   attention  In committee on the V. V. k E. 'bill  Chief Engineer Tye of the (.!.:��������� P. R. declared it reasonably possible to find a  route all within Canadian territory  and that there was no reason for crossing into the states for the western terminus of the railroad. He also maintained that on 1,28.^ miles of the general line with which the V. \7."&-'E',.; proposes to connect, there was Only one  branch that did not run to the 'north  and tap Canadian  trade.  Mi-. Foster then addressed the .committee in opposition to the bill, which  hH said would give a road to tap the  rich mining districts of British.Columbia and take away its ores arid have  them .smelted on the American side.  Duncan Ross declared the whole  opposition to the bill was bolstered up  by the C. P. R. monopoly.  The minister of Justice replied with  emphasis that the C. P. R. monopoly  had nothing to do with it. The onh  reason this bill was again bei'oie the  committee was that "the Y. V. &' E.  wanted to divert its line south of the  boundary.  Ralph Smith read a message from  several points urging the passage of  the bill. He quite: admitted that the  people of these particular places  wanted a railroad thhl would run  south into the States.  Mr. Henderson read a telegram  from the board of trade at Cbilliwack  urging their member.' Mr. Kennedy,  to support an amendment compelling  the V.V. <y. E. to build from Princeton  west, and to construct entirely in  Canadian territory.  The vote on the amended   third section which enables the V. V.   it  E. to  make such connections on its  railway  as the Governor in council   may deem  expedient for the purpose of avoiding  | difficulties  in  construction   was  then  I put and it carried   by   7S   yeas   to 00  i nays.  I     Mr. Foster then   moved   a   new  section as follows:  "Provided that the governor-in-  council shall grant no power to the  company to construct .south of the  international boundary line unless it  shall be shown to be necessary in  order to avoid engineering difficulties:  nor until satisfactory guarantees have  been given that the line from Clover-  dale to Princeton shall be completed  on Canadian territory within a reasonable  time."  Mr. Fielding itrged that the amendment be not allowed in committee,  hut moved in the House, by which  time the government would consider  it and be prepared to state its policy  in regard thereto.  Mr. Foster agreed to this as'fair.  The renr'ining clauses were adopted  and the bill ordered to be reported  as  amended.

Mr. Schubert is in bis eightieth  year but is yet hale and hearty, which  is   most   remarkable   in   view  of  the  hardships borne in pioneering in   this  province, for bis was one of the   most  noteworthy   of the early experiences.

Mr. Schubert-  tried placer mining in Cariboo   for a  number of years after he  reached   the  province, but finally took up the beautiful stretch of land' in  Spallmncheen  which became known as Round Prairie  and from which he. has made a.  competence which has placed him in comfortable circumstances for his declining  years.    His wife,  who bore with him  the hardships of that 5i months' trip,  is still living and in the enjoyment  of  tolerably good health.  of a bottle of castor oil, and then all  went merry as a marriage bell.

At the men's 100 yds,  i match., for which a cup was given   by ���������������������������  | G. M. Winter of the. bank of B. N. A.  i to be shot for,   the  competition   was  J keen.

H. Smith, had a show which was  part shooting match and part refreshment booth. A figure dressed in a blue  print wrapper and poke bonnet and  named Aunt Sally had cherries for  sale on the extraordinary condition  that no one could have any cherries uu-  less he or she could shy a. stick straight  enough to hit her, at 10 paces distant.  To be allowed the privilege of' shying_  the sticks they had to pay 5 cents for  six shots. One lady showed such an  aptitude for shying straight and thus  winning cherries that she was in great  demand to shoot for others. ,The inference $vas that she had either been  practising on hens in the back yard or  had some objectionable Aunt Sally t'or  a neighbor.
