HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  OLIVER k GLADDEN  The 'arrival in Hedley on Thursday  hist of Mr. Kenneth Harper, to act as  relieving agent in the Bank of B.N.A.  in Hedley, revives' the recollection of  his treatment last year at the hands  of the Customs officials at San Francisco.   Mr. Harper is a New Zealander  and obtained a position in  the  San  Francisco   branch   of   the   Bank   of  B.N. A.     When he "arrived   in   Sit'ri  Francisco he found himself up against  a condition of affairs which for narrow  exclusiveness   and   official    tyranny  would compare with some of the rankest doings of the Muscovite police.  -,  To a Hedleyite '-who  knows something of the flagrant violations of the  contract labor clause of our alien labor  law which'have been allowed to pass  here unheeded, this .case of Mr. Harper  will appeal with additional force.-   -^- ������������������  On his return to New Zealand he reported the case to -Premier  Seddon  who took the matter up, and meanwhile an opening in  the Vancouver  branch of the bank was offered him,  when he came to B. C.   After a heap  of  official   correspondence,   and   the  threat  on  the part of Mr.  Harper's  attorneys  to  bring action.for $50,000  damages, the Yankees offered $400 to  settle it, and  Mr. Harper accepted it.  The $400 cheque came along just Avhe.n  Mr. .1. J. Marks w.-is in town on  Monday. Mr. Marks has put in a busy  summer, for in addition to the diamond drilling on the Hummingbird  group which has been in progress  since mid-winter, he and his partners,  Messrs. Brodhagen and Murphy, have  done a lot of development work on the  Golden Zone.  Regarding the Golden' Zone work  and the results obtained, Mr. Marks is  particularly well pleased, the ore bodies at every point where they worked  increasing both in size and quality."  There is now a large quantity of excellent ore on the dump, awaiting the  completion of the Avagon road up  Twenty-mile creek and the arrival of  the railway at Hedley. Mr. Marks  did extensive sampling of the property  at various points and has sent away  the rock for assay. This sampling  was thoroughly done and the results  should shoAV exactly what the property  Avill do on a commercial basis.  In speaking of the wagon road up  the creek, now under construction, he  Avas delighted at the. progress being  made. When the remark av.-is made  to him that everyone was surprised  that the road Avas going up on such a  flat, easy grade, It Avas Mr. Marks'  turn to laugh, as it justified the position avInch he took a year ago, when  he claimed that the grade was not  likely to exceed 5 per cent.  It AA-as not only the Golden Zone  group, he said, that was to be benefitted by the completion of the Avagon  road,  for he spoke   of  the   splendid  PROGRESS^ V.V.&E.

C.  he was going off on his holidays. To  show that he had no hard feelings and  also to prove to them that he could go  into their countrv without asking  their leave, he bloAved in some of the  $400 in Spokane and Seattle.  The folioAving clipping, which gives  some details, is taken from the Auckland correspondence to the Montreal  rStar:  "Mr. Harper states that when the  Sierra, on which he sailed, arrived at  San Francisco, the customs officer at  that port   boarded   the steamer and  questioned him as to his business generally, and especially as to his appointment with  tins bank.    He then asked  if Mr. Harper had signed any contract.  On replying in the negative, the officer  inquired if he had any letter from the  bank   asking   him  to  go  there.    Mr.  Harper reolied   "Yes,"  and   produced  the letter, on a- promise  being given  that it Avould be handed back to him.  This Avas not done, nor has Mr. Harper  seen the letter since.    The officer then  said : "You come under the contract  .labor law, and you -will not be allowed  to land."    Mr.  Harper was  kept on  board,   hut a friend  avIio  Avas  going  ashore   rang   up  the  bank  manager.  The    latter   gentleman   Avent   to  the  dock,   but he Avas not allowed to see  Mr.  Harper,   "as  it A\-as against the  laAv." The manager Avas also informed  that he could only send a  letter to  Mr. Harper that had first been  read  by the customs authorities.    The bank  officials appealed to Washington, but  it.Avas some days before a reply  was  received and  Mr.  Harper allowed to  land.    The decision of the American  authorities went against Mr. Harper,  and he Avas told that he must return  to   the   country    Avhence   he   came.  AVhen  this decision Avas reached  the  bank agreed to transfer Mr. Harper to  the   branch   at   Vancouver,   but  the  United Stales officials Avould notalloAV  him to  go   to  Vancouver,  saying he  Concluded on J'agc Jhiuv.  showings on Riordan Mountain, as  Avell as other properties to which the  road Avould give means of'ingress and  egress, and bring the trade to tlie -railway at Hedley. He deprecated' mid ue  impatience, and thought that when  people had waited so long, thev should  not allow either their courage or patience to leave them now on the verge  of realization of their hopes. So far as  the wagon road was concerned, if it  couldn't be completed this year it  would reach its destination next year,  and the fact that it 'was building was  sufficient encouragement to property  owners to goon with development,"so  far as present facilities Avould alloAV,  and when the road is completed, any  kind of machinery would easily he laid  doAA'n at any property requiring such.  Good Showing on Humming-bird.  The diamond drilling on the Hum-  mingbisd group continues with gratifying results. The drill is now at  work on the third hole, and at the beginning of this week the hole had  reached a depth of 405 feet of which  the last 40 feet shoAved fine-looking  ore. In this hole andesite is encountered and all the conditions favorable for  showing a repetition of Avhat development has shown up on the Nickel  Plate. The. present hole, is to be continued to a depth of 550 feet, after  Avhich the drill Avill be uiOA'ed further  down the hill to A'erif'v data already  ascertained as well as to demonstrate  further conditions believed to exist.  The present contract Avill in all probability- be completed in September,  but next year farther contracts will  be let Avhen 1500 feet bore holes will  be put in.  METEOROLOGICAL.

The steel gang is temporarily idle,  having run out of ties, but will 1k> at  work again shortly. .In view of the  grading work yet to be done between  Midway and Molson and the many  bridges tv he installed, it is estimated  that the steel will not reach Molson  before the first of August.  Pile driving at the bridge sites'on  Myers Creek and nearby1 points is  'progressing.- Three hammers are how  at work, one steam and tAvo horse  power, the former weighing 2800 lbs.  The 800 foot rock cut at Gallagher's  camp Avill doubtless be the. last piece  of Avork.finished .between' Molson and  -Midway, and it. is estimated that it  will not be completed until the latter  part of July". Four crews of men are  ut-Avork on the cut, rushing it to completion as fast, as possible. Hughes'  ���������work, across the British line from  Molson; will not be finished before the  lattei.'.part of July. '  Moriarity Bros, have just completed  the job of getting out 8000 feet of  piling, to be used in the.bridges on the  Canadian side. The piling is now  about all in, except a small lot to be  used for the water tank at Molson and  some cattle passes. The Moriaritys are  iiOav engaged on a 20,000 tie contract  neai; Gallagher's camp.  Gorman & Peterson finished their  contracts a week ago last Friday and  have moved their outfits .from the  field. They have-not yet taken another  contract, and are waiting to see'what  Hill is going to do about the North  Fork Kettle river line, in the hope of  getting work on the British Columbia  side, in order to save paying duty on  their outfits.  Mr. Enncrsou, who has the first  three miles of work on the American  side, of the line, has completed his  lower work and is now devoting all of  his energy to finishing up the station  grounds at Molson. He expects to be  done next Saturday. So far he has  taken no contract elsewhere.  Mr. Ennerson's work on the station  grounds at Molson consists of grading  for a large "Y," four sidetracks, in addition  to   the   main   line,   a  25 foot  dri\*eway on each side of the station  grounds   and   a site  for   the   engine  stalls to be constructed for the accommodation of engines used in assisting  heavy trains up the hill from Oroville.  A. V. McDonald's work on the local  line is rapidly drawing to a close.   Mr.  McDonald himself is iioav on the Snake  river getting his contracts there under  way, while. A. J. liannegar is closing  up his affairs.    His camps, Nos. 1 and  2, have finished work and   have been  closed.    He Avill be through at camp  No. 8 by Julv 15th.    A portion of his  outfits from the closed camps are iioav  on their way to Ferry for shipment to  the Snake river.  Johnson <Sc Nelson are putting the  finishing touches on their work south-  Avest of Molson, which is famed as the  wonder of all travellers passing that  Avay, oAving to the great ascent made  in the remarkably short distance.  They Avill soon be moving to the  Snake river, where they have taken a  contract.  Caughren A; Woldson Avill be through  in another week or ten days. They  have closed one camp and a portion  of their outfits have been taken away.  Winters, Parsons &, Boomer's camp  No. 1 has been closed, all the Avork on  that contract having been finished.  Their steam shovel, hoAvever, Avill be  kept busy for several Aveeks.  Surveys are being made by the Gt.  Northern for a projected line to branch  off from the main line at Columbia  siding and run up the Moses coulee  into the Big Bend country.: Engineer  Tracy, who has h.-id charge of the  surveying on the northern end of the  proposed Oroville.-Wrnatchee; line, is  working north from Columbia siding  with three crews of men. :  It is believed among those who are  in a position to know that it is the intention of the Great Northern to construct a branch into .thc'-Waterville  country, thus securing the wheat-  trade of that district. Rumors of  electric lines from Spokane into the  heart of the-wheat district is thought  to have hail some effect in, hastening  activity on the proposed line.  Artful Dodging.  Up to time of going to press ho news  has reached us from Ottawa^concerning a. settlement of the right of way  difficulty at .Hedley,-'which means' that  the Minister's restriction laid down in  .... ... c -  his decision of April 27th prohibiting  work-on;'railroad.between''Hedley and  Sixteen Mile is still  in force.   Some  parties in toAvn avIio claim to have'-the  ear of Duncan Ross are .���������������������������-making' the  statement that the matter, of right of  Avay here has nothing to do  Avith  the  delay in commencing work,  but that  certain information is being sought by  the railway Commission   from Chief  Engineer Kennedy Avhich  he has not  yet given.   The public, however,  Avill  be very reluctant to- accept that version, as it Avas A-ery Avell known Avhen  Mr. Kennedy Avas here last that that  affair   was   the   real   and immediate  cause of the delay in commencing construction.   It is also Avell understood  that the    contractors   are averse   to  having the grade so far ahead of the  rails and that thi.s also had something  to do Avith it,  but   the   fact   remains  nevertheless that the Minister of rail-  Avays on April 27th placed a restriction  on building at Hedley which  he has  hot yet   removed.    To  cast a reflection upon Mr Kennedy in this  way in  order to get rid of some of the responsibility for delay,    is too  thin.   The  public simply refuse to swalloAV it.  J. Reith, of Keremeos, was in t-OAvn  on Friday last, and reported a regular  deluge  of rain there  the evening be  fore.    IVeddle iV.-Reith's neAV hotel is  Hearing completion  and  they  expect   mises  that may  be provided  Avill of  A. popular promenade these days is  that up Twenty-Mile Creek to inspect  the Avork on the new road.  To-day is the glorious 12th. Siniilkameen Orangemen \vill celebrate at  Keremeos. Those in the upper Okanagan go to Salmon Arm.  Miss Lainont left on Friday morning  for Suimnerland, where she expects to  spend the greater part of the summer  holidays with Mr. and Mrs. Gartreli.  Mr. and Mrs. Wright Avere down on  Saturdav from Nickel Plate mountain,  where Mr. Wright is still engaged on  his diamond drilling contract on the  Hummingbird for Mr. Marks.  Miss Laura Irwin, daughter of Indian  j Agent A. Irwin, of this city, at the  recent annual examinations of the  Toronto Conservatory of Music, was  the Avinner of the scholarship for  highest standing Avith first-class honors  in the piano department of the first  year.���������Kamloops Sentinel.  Considerable immediate benefit to  the toAvn from construction of the new  road up l\veuty-Mile Creek is already  apparent in the prospect of getting  out AA'ood. There seems to be an abundant supply of it up the creek, and as  that on the Similkameen awis running  short and difficult to procure, the new-  field -will be a sort of godsend.  Mr. L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., has  been urging the Department of Education for some time to make arrangement for providing school accommodation in the lower Similkameen, and  jusfc on his departure for the coast he  received a letter from the Superintendent indicating that steps would be  immediately taken. In all probability  no permanent building will be put up  at present, until it becomes apparent  where the centre of school population  Avill be found and any temporary pre-  to get moved into  the new house by  July 15th.  course be located for the greatest convenience of those avIio may iioav attend..

LANDS AND WORKS DEPT.  Judging from the determined  onslaught made by  opposition  papers on the Lands and Works  Department it   would   appear  that they regard that to be  the  most vulnerable point for attack  against,  the , present   Administration, and yet strange to  say,  there is no department of  the  Government (unless it be  that of "Education)   in   which  more real and  radical  reforms  have been carried out than  in  the department of Lands'and  Works.    None of the preceding  administrations   could  show  a  record  for despatch   of public  business  that  would   begin  to  compare with  that which  has  characterized   this   department  since the Hon. R. F. Green took  charge. During the incumbency  of former Chief Commissioners  and particularly that  of W. C.  Wells, the length of time taken  for the  issuance   of   a  crown  grant for either a mineral claim  or   a   pre-emption   was   very  much  longer   than  at   present  notwithstanding the fact  that  the number of clerks formerly  employed was in excess of that  comprising  the   present   staff.  It   now takes  only   as   many  weeks as  it formerly   took of  months. Furthermore the work  of the department is no longer  left to deputies and underlings,  but    the    Chief   Commissioner  now insists' upon  knowing the  details of   business  that  conies  before his department. Old subheads  whose  pottering  caused  much of the delay  in  the past  and who considered themselves  indispensable, have been removed.    In some cases their places  have been  filled with  men  of  more modern business snap and  in other cases it  has   been   left  vacant, and yet the  work  lias  been turned  out more  expeditiously. In fact if any mistake  has been made in the carrying  out of departmental routine and  work it has  been  in  trying  to  get along with too few men and  placing  office   drudgery  the  deputy-commissioner  has too much,  to  attend  to  m  dealing with the various cases  that come before him.

He  lived it, he spoke it, he sang it.  The pictures of past patriotic  gatherings would be sadly incomplete without his full-orbed  countenance lit up with optimistic love for Canada. And no  one who has seen and heard  him in his oratorical moments  will forget the impression of  sincere devotion to the ctiu.se of  Canada he left on the minds of  his auditors.  He was called to teach, and  has been a constant inspiration  to thousands of pupils who cannot but be tlie better Canadians  by reason of their intimate con-  with him. Had he entered politics it is presumable that his  patriotism would have taken on  different form. But as a teacher, with the rhetorical imagination of a poet, he has given to  Canada The Maple Leaf Forever, which with all its faults of  rhyme and reason, is still the  truest and most popular expres-  NOTICE.

Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Jones returned  on Tuesday night from a two weeks'  visit to the coast. r  Dr. Fraser, dentist, of Armstrong,  B.C., came in on Tuesday's stage and is  doing work at the Hotel Similkameen.  Two more engines for use in the V.  ���������V. & E. track-laying are 'starting ��������� out,  from  Midway.  Mr. Bm-ritt has moved his law office  from his residence on Webster St. to  rooms in Whillans' block over Love's  drug store.  The marriage of. David McBride, of  Bridesville, Bock Mountain, to Mrs.  Blyth, of tlie West Fork of Kettle  River, is announced.  The road gang Avho have been boarding in town  up  to  the., .present  have  now gone into camp lip the canyon  ,;    just below Duffy's cabin.  ������������������ Rev. Mr. Hibbert will preach in  Keienieos on Sundav next, and consequently the Methodist service in  Hedley will not he held on  that day.  Mr. Emil F. Voigt, Mrs. Voigt and  their son Victor came in from the  Coast on Saturday evening and left  on Sunday morning for their home at  Voigt's Camp.  T. D. Pickard Avas in town last week  renewing old acquaintances, and incidentally, us he laughingly remarked  ''finding out what'he was doing." Mr.  Pickard is looking particularly Avell.  W. J. Twiss'of the Mutual Life of  Canada was married in Vancouver on  the 5th inst to Miss Sadie Brenton.  The ceremony was performed in Christ  Church by Rev. C. C. Owen.  The heavy electric storms prevailing  in the district last week were somewhat  demoralizing to the telephone system.  The interior economy of Mr. Brad-  sh.-'Av's instrument at Fifteen Mile was  considerably disturbed.  The --heavy- rains in the valley on  Thursday and Friday last raised the  Similkameen river OA-er a foot and  gave the Hedley Lumber Company's  drive which is now below Bromley's  -a gratifying boost. The drive is coming along at the rate of a mile and a  half it day.  D. McCurdy, collector of Customs  ���������and postmaster in the lower Similkameen, Avas in toAvn on Saturday last.  The new.post office recently opened  there is proving a great coiiArenience  to residents in that part of the A'alley,  some of Avhom had to go fifteen miles  ���������for their mail for as many years.  Mr. L. G. MacHaffie, manager of the  Bank of B. N. A., and Dr. McEwen,  left on Saturday morning per cayeuse  on a trip to Vancouver, over the Hope  trail. They intended to do some fishing by the Avay���������in fact to have a little  of the simple life after the cares and  excitement of a year's sojourn in  Hedley.  There are persistent rumors apparently authentic, that the Midway and  Vernon railway charter has been transferred to either the C. P. R. or the G.  ���������N. Even if it should turn out to be so,  there is little likelihood of construction starting up just at present, owing  to the serious shortage of men, a condition likely to become worse instead  of better now that harvest time is so  near.���������Midway Star.  lb never rains but it pours. Hedley-  ites avIio have had to keep their grinders in shape as best they could since  the visit of Dr. Mathison in November  last, are now to receive abundance of  -attention, for in addition to the visit  of Dr. Eraser, who is now here, the.  announcement is made by Dr. Mathison to his patients in the Siniilkameen  that ho will be in Hedley in the last  week in July.  Mr. h. W. Shatford, M. P. P. left  on Sundav evening for the Coast to  obtain relief from his illness. He was  strongly urged by Dr. McEwen to go  three weeks ago, and it began to look  during the last few days of last week  that it was doubtful whether his  strength would be equal to the trip  out for he was in very bad shape,  His attacks each year are mostly in  the months of June, July and August,  and they are invariably connected  with residence in the dry belt which  leads to the supposition that some  plant is responsible for the trouble, i'or  as a rule he is not effected with it  elsewhere or at other seasons of the  year.  Orders'have been issued by the Gt.  Northern for active' construction up  the North Fork of Kettle River.to the  Pathfinder mine, and also southward  ���������from Republic. With the limited supply of men available it is not a fa\ror-  able outlook for securing sufficient  Avorking force to push work up the  Similkameen. Contractors never had  greater difficulty; to hold men than at  present and the starting of work at the  two points mentioned was evidently  with a view to keeping the Avorking  force, oil the V. V. & E. from getting,  scattered pending' the settlement of  the right ������f way difficulty here and  the completion of track-laying to Molson. Already many gangs oh this side  of the line have been paid off". Those  remaining don't Avant to be compelled  to move south as they would have to  pay duty on their outfits. Hence the  reason for Avork on North Fork, but  much good that will do for the Similkameen !     .���������' .'. -  Some of the more enthusiastic anglers in town contend that a fish ladder  should be placed in the dain at the  head of the flume up Twenty mile.  They are of the opinion that it is impossible for fish to ascend Avith the  dam in its present shape, and they  claim that if fish come up Twenty-mile  from the Similkameen to the dam and  cannot get up any farther they -will  cease coining. This is a point that it  would he well to look into. Piscicul-  culture is now pretty Avell understood  and by applying for information at  the proper source, this point could be  easily verified or set aside. It is a  matter of sufficient importance to forbid the existence of a doubt, and if the  dam does not now meet the requirements of the fisheries regulations, a  very small expenditure only would be  required to make it do so.  1:  i  S  i  i  | HOTE L  f H ED LEY  I. ���������:"������������������:        ' .

Mr. Harper to San .Francisco had to bring him hack free of  charge, and the customs officials saw  that he went on board the Sonoma.  "My troubles are now OA-er," thought  Mr. Harper,'hut not so.    When  the  Sonoma reached Honolulu he was told  he was wanted on deck.    To quote his  own words : T was 'wanted' all right,  for on goingr up on deck I found two  policemen with a patrol wagon on tlie  wharf,   waiting  to   take   me  to   jail.  This,   I   found, was according  to the  orders of the captain, who was afraid  I .might cleai- out, and Jet Jiim in for a  heavy flue.    I refused to get into the  van, and  was  thereupon  marched to  the prison, a quarter of a. mile .away,  where I was placed in a yard���������a "detention yard' I think they called it���������  with a large number of prisoners, including Chinese, Japanese and others.

The successful party  elected forthwith a mayor and council.  In view of the large vote polled against  it, there is talk of mandamus proceedings forbidding putting incorporation  into effect. There is a big fight on  there between the old townsite and  new.  There are rumors afloat again in  Midway that the C. P. R. are getting  ready to begin construction westward.  The Star says that it is said to be the  intention ot the company to complete  its track as far as the river lit an early  date, and as soon as the Ioav water  stage of the river is reached will commence Avork on the much-talked-of  bridge, presumablv Avith the intention  of pushing construction Avest.  The Palmer Mountain Prospector in  its issue of June 29th, said : "To-day is  the longest day in the year." Doubtless some of the wiseacres who always  know how to run a paper better than  the editor, on reading this Avill say  "what an ignorant chap that editor  must be ! ", but each of the felloAvs on  the other papers who understand what  has happened will laugh good-naturedly at the little accident which might  as easily as not have happened to himself. That innocent little paragraph,  which had evidently been intended for  the issue before, looks sadly out of  place Avium it comes limping along a  week late. Local items, like individuals, must keep up with the procession  if they wish to avoid attracting undue  notice and would escape ungenerous  criticism. But the point Ave wish to  make is that the public should not he  too ready to jump at the conclusion  that typographical errors, either in  orthography, syntax or mathematical  geography, are the result of the lack  of educational training on the part of  the reporter or proof-reader. Possibly  over 95 per cent, of them are the result of accident pure and simple, and  the Avonder is that there are not far  more. Above all, editors ought to endeavor to he generous with each other  in such matters.  To make good bread you  must have good flour. If  you want the best bread  you must use the best  flour.
