At the Nickel Piute mine it is now  the fixed policy to keep development  work well ahead of the stopes,  and  the results of this conservative policy  may  be seen   in  even   a   rapid   trip  through the principal workings.     An  incline is being sunk on the ore below  the No. 4 level, and two machines are  being used on this work ;   the  incline  is now down about 155 feet from  the  level.    Crosscuts are being run to the  ends of the   pay ore   from   a  point  about 75 feet below the level, and connection being driven  to  the level  to  provide   better . ventilation.      Crosscuts have also been started   to   the.  end of the pay chute at a point just  above the bottom of the incline.   This  work is proving a large ore reserve at  a point far below any existing stopes.  A secondary ore chute lying   below  the main or upper body,   has   been  opened in a number of places' and 'is,  now  being scoped above the   No.    4  level, while yet a third ore chute lying  in a plane below the second has been  found by the diamond drill,  though  its dimensions are still unknown,  and  no development work other than  the  drilling has been done on it.     A body  of pay ore,   that does not "appear on  the surface has also  been discovered  on the No, 4, and will  be further ex  plored.     The company  has one  diamond drill at work on  the Windfall,  and arranc'eriients   are    about   complete, ,t'or stacting.thcPeuond.;.

GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER AND BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building-  Princeton  HILLIARD'S  BARBER     SHOP  FOR AX EASY Sil.VVK  HOT <fc COLD BATHS  Next door north of Grand Union Hotel  The Dominion Government has  voted $50,000 for the purpose of making the Central Canada Exhibition,  Ottawa, September 5th to 16th, an  event of national character. The  Dominion Exhibition has now come to  Ontario for the second time. It was  held in New Wesniinster, B. C. in  1905. Every year it grows in importance. Hon. Martin Burrell, minister  of agriculture, who was .the first to  grant the application of the Ottawa  Exhibition management for the national grant, is taking much interest  in the. approaching event and his cooperation is thoroughly appreciated.  One of his last acts was to instruct  the Central Experimental Farm to  prepare a suitable display for this  Fair.  Chief   among   the    improvements  adopted for the Dominion  Exhibition  is the increase of all cash prizes by 50  percent.    A total of $25,000  will  be  paid out to  live stock  men,  fanners,  fruit growers and other competitors.  It will  aiVord  fruit men    of   British  Columbia a splendid opportunity  to  exhihit their produce.   Not only will  the money awards attract a monster  collection of entries hut  the business  advantage of showing at  this  big exhibition is appealing to all  interests.  Manufacturers will (ill  four acres of  space in the pavillions.    To acco in mo-  date the large displays a new  $100,000  machinery   hall    has    been    erected.  More space is demanded for live stock,  the number of horses being estimated  at 500.  Railway companies enlarged the  territory over which low rates will  prevail, the area being extended westward to Port Arthur. The association pays freight on all exhibits from  beyond a radius of Ottawa. Any of  these shipments returning direct home  will be carried free by the railways.  In keeping with all other improvements innovations have been made in  the amusement line. There will be  daily balloon ascensions, lifty Midway  shows, scores of vaudeville stars,  horse races, chariot races, famous  bands, including the Scots Guards of  London,  Eng., military  pageant and  PENTICTON, B.

A wire was sent to> Vancouver for an  expert. Mr. Cunningham, the provincial inspector; of fruit pestsj sent  his assistant, Mr. Lme, who pronounced the disease ti) be pear blight.  < In this ease, howifi'er, the apples  were more seriously affected than the  pears. But several inpple orchards  were so seriously affected that for a  time it appeared as though the sear  son's output of fruit Would be materially decreased. It is lio longer spreading, and, except in one or two instances, the disease hits' not been in  evidence in the 'Penticton orchards.  The remedy applied  is to cut   off  the affected branch about a foot below , the diseased  paijt;  and  to   keep  the knife properly  sterilized,  so  that  the contagion may not have access to  the clean wood.     Experts  state that  owing to the fact  that blight is  bacterial  in  its  nature \i is difficult to  treat with success.    l������ appears to live  over the winter just ill the: margin of  the affected part,   nisar the   healthy  wood, and not iii  otlier parts of the  tree or in  the soil;    *It is fortunate,  however, that the disease sometimes  dies of its own  accord, especially in  the case of body bliglit.    It is thought  to be conveyed froiii;;tree to tree by  birds and ^insects,   which   would   account for the great increase at  blos'-  soniing time.    It appears to develop  very   rapidly    and |; the    maximum  amount of damage is.idone almost   as  soona's the attack i ���������peonies   notice*,  able.     As 'anything 'which    produces  an undue growth of succulent wood is  conducive to blight, it is well to cultivate and manure so as   to produce a  medium  growth  of   strong,    healthy  wood.  As the orchards in the affected district use irrigation it has been suggested that excessive irrigation late in  the fall, and a consequent excess  growth of wood, may have something  to do with the present outbreak.

June   27. ���������Plans   for    the  Alberta and Eastern British Columbia  Press Convention in  Nelson,   July 26  and 27, are nearing  completion.     As  matters stand now,  arrangements are  under way for either a  trip   to Bon-  nington Falls,  on   Kootenay   River,  near Nelson, taking in  Slocan   fishing  pool, or a launch trip up the  lake   the  first day; while one  of  the lake  passenger steamers  has  been   chartered  for the second day for a trip to Kaslo  and other points east and north.    Upon steamer the business of the convention  can   lie   transacted   and   at   the  same time the visiting delegates  can  have the full benefit of the exhilarating niountajn  air of Kootenay Lake  and can enjoy the   wonderful  scenery  which surrounds the lake.     Thi.s  feature of the programme of entertainment will be  thoroughly appreciated  by every visitor, and if the Nelson club  were in the  tourist .advertising business they would, they say, describe  it  as "alone worth the entire expense  in  connection  with  attendance    at   the  convention."  SERIOUS  AUTO ACCIDENT  On Sunday June 30th, at 4:50 p.m.  ti terrihic hurricane swept up from the  smith striking the city of Regina and  levelling to the ground everything  that lay in its path.  Coming from the south it dropped  just a few blocks from the southern  limits of the city, cutting a wide  swath several streets wide, ran down  into the centre of the city, laying  buildings flat in its wake. The Methodist and Baptist and Knox churches,  all magnificent structures, were the  first of the larger edifices struck. The  former went with a .crash tlmt hardly  sounded above the howling of the  storm and the roar of the cloudburst  that accompanied the wind. The  greater part of the roof was removed  from'- the latter structure and the.  storm moved across Victoria" square  removing the walls and roof from the  Y.M.C.A., badly wrecking the iiiagni-  ficanti new public library, .both'"new  this year, and passing thence to the  Presbyterian church which was little  better off than the Methodist. The  Y.M.C.A. was next in line and half of  the building was demolished in an instant. , A few small buildings were  moved from their locations, some being carried across the street and the  Masonic temple was next attacked  and just about razed.  TELEPHONE EXCHANGE AVRECKED  In the next block to the west and  one'future -iiorthj the -telephone- exchange stood apart by itself except for  a few smaller buildings. Upon this  the force of the storm had instantaneous effect, laying the building a flat  mass of wreckage under, which the  girls were imprisoned for over an  hour.  ELEA'ATOKS  WKECICE1)  The Massey-Harris offices and their  warehouses, standing beside the C. P.  R. yards were practically demolished  and of the row of grain elevators upon  which the farmers of the district are  depending for the storage of their  crop this season, but one remains and  that much the worse For wear. Over  on the north side of the tracks, warehouses were destroved right and left.  No attempt was made to estimate the  loss of property.  The Canadian Pacific railway yards  are a flat expanse of ruined shops and  trains, hardly a car remaining whole.  Several were picked up   bodily   and  carried some distance in the air.    One  was  carried  right  through  a freight  shed.    The whole  north  side of the  city is practically  wiped out.    No one  knows how many are dead on this side  of the city.   A canoe was carried from  W'ascana lake,   a   distance  of  three-  quarters of a mile  to  Victoria park  and dropped  there.    Others  together  with dingys and   even  small sailing  vessels,  lie strewn  over the southern  section of the city, at distances varying  up to  half a mile from  the hike.  The cupola of the Baptish church was  dropped in the middle of a street three  blocks away.  DEFINITE NEWS SHORTLY  -���������. .-  -.t  V. V. &  E.   Building Programme  Expected In a Few Days  That matters arc coming to u head  and wo are soon to know something  of the Great 'Northern's intentions for  completion of the V.. V. & E.'; to the  coast is now quite evident. Early  last week Mr. Kennedy, chief engineer, left Vancouver for Hope,.. in  company with the' engineer of the  Railway* Commission and from that  point they would proceed up the  Coquihalla and go over the route  through to Tulameen.  It will be remembered that when  the Kettle. Valley \vere filing their-'  plaiis with the Commissioner for the  building of their line down the Coquihalla they were opposed by the-  Great Northern on the ground that  there was not., room for two roads,  through the canyon of the Coquihalla,  and that the Y. V. & E was the first  located through the valley. The  Commission decided to send their own  'engineer over tlie route, and this is  the-occasion of his visit.  It is apparently no secret that V, V.  &. E. officials have admitted that contracts would be let at once for the portion between Tulaineen and the summit, and if the. engineer for the Commission'should report the way they  want him to, contracts would be let'  for the entire distance between Tulameen and Hope.  Mr Kennedy and the engineer for  the Commission were expected to pass  through here on Tuesday of this-  week.  A PROPHECY FULFILLED  In the light of what has been occurring in the United States during the  last three months, the following paragraphs written by the late SamuelL.  Clemens (Mark Twain) will be read  with special interest, and to .the majority thL'S.ca.iijyutv, but..app^ai^. tisr,,u,i-Q-.  plietic. The occasion upon which  Mark Twain wrote these paragraphs  was two days after the inauguration  of President Taft, in March, 1909.  The paragraphs read as follows :  "Astronomers assure us that the attraction of gravitation on the surface  of the sun is twenty-eight times as  powerful as is the force at the earth's  surface, and that an object which  weighs 217 pounds elsewhere would  weigh 0,000 pounds there. For seven  years this country has lain smothering under a burden like that, the incubus representing, in tlie person of  President Roosevelt, the difference between 217 pounds and 6,000. Thanks  he, we. got rid of this disastrous burden day before yesterday at last!  "Forever!- Prohubly not. Probably only for a. brief breathing spell,  whereupon. Mr. Taft, we. may hope to  get back some of our health���������some of  our years. We expect to have Mr.  Roosevelt sitting on us again with his  twenty-eight times the weight of any  other Presidential burden that Providence would impose upon us for our  sins.  "Our people have adored this showy  charlatan as perhaps no imposter of  his breed has been adored since the  golden calf; so it is to be expected  that the nation will want him back  again after he is done hunting other  wild animals heroically in Africa with  the safeguards and advertising equipment of a park of artillery and a brass  band."

Merritt's rate of taxation is IS mills  on the dollar.  After several days' balloting which  promised at times to terminate in a  complete deadlock Woodrow Wilson  was chosen by the Democrats in their  convention at Baltimore as the party  candidate for the Presidency.  Early in the running Champ Clark  was leading man when his support  began to fade away. The two-thirds  majority which the Democrats require  in choice of a candidate made it difficult to settle the question and it  was not until the 15th ballot that conflicting interests were reconciled and  the necessary number of delegates  had gone, over to Wilson's support to  give him the votes required.  SMELTER FOR VOIGT'S CAMP  Diamond Drilling in Progress on Claims  Under Bond to B. C. Copper.  GREENWOOD B. 0., June 30.���������The  lessees of the Elkhoin expect to get  rich ore in a short time.  The British Columbia Copper Company has six diamond drills at work  on the Voigt group, near Princeton.  If the bond on these properties is  taken up a smelter will be erected at  a little lake about seven miles from  Princeton.

C. N. B. had to  begin operations down the Coquihalla  from the. summit at the. hendwaters of  the Coldwater before .inly 1st. Now  as it has all along been uiHlerstood  that the Ciniadian Northern were  building their line through the Fraser  canyon it is difficult to see what they  should have to do with the Coquihalla.  Evidently the wi iter of the despatch  must have got mixed up somewhat  with cither the. Kettle Valley or the  V. V. <fc E.  The Rossland Miner in a.  recent   issue had a very sensible  article   which  took for its text the old proverb "Distant Mills Are  Always  Green."'     The  revival of  interest  in   milling   in   the  linssland (.���������amp   and  particularly   the  development in progress in   the  south  bolt and satisfactory results being obtained   therefrom   made  the   old  proverb easy of application.     The   Miner  showed  how several Rosslaudors   had  turned their attention to the   "distant  hills" tit ii linn- when there was  a  decided lull in mining in   the  old  eninp.  made famous about fifteen   years  ago  by the   output   of  properties   like   Le  Iloi and   War   Magic,   and   they   were  now returning to   Hosslnnd   with   the  belief that they could   have   done   better to have slaved at home.     It, is per  spective which lends a  deeper   tint   to  the verdure of the ������������������distant  hills" and  that tint, is often lost to  those   on   the  ground.     If the experience   has   a   lesson for iiossland it also has I'or  Camp  Medley.     It is very doubtful   whether  there is another camp in the   province  that oIters the encouragement   for   intelligent    honest    exploration    which  this   camp  does  at   the   present    moment.    The experience of the only concerns that have done any considerable  amount of work in opening up a property in this camp is that  only   a  very  small   percentage  of   the   ore    bodies  which   they   have   encountered    have  had   any   corresponding   surface   outcrop.     It- is to all intents and purposes  what   may   be   termed   a  blind   camp  with countless ore bodies  of   immense  value, and money   must   be   expended  intelligently before these are   located.

The Canadian Bank of Commerce is  opening a branch at Rock Creek.  Mr. Stone jr., of the Diamond Drill  Exploration Co., arrived in Medley  this week to undertake drilling on the  Windfall group,  A party of young people from I^each-  hmd rode across the hill to Princeton  and took in the celebration. Returning they came down the, valley  through Hedley.  , A train load of steel went up the  West Fork of Kettle River last week  to push the, track on nearer the  graders. A large force of. men are  now engaged in construction work  above Carini.  T. Wirtli is takinga couple of weeks  oft' and began the holiday with a  couple of celebrations. He took in  the Princeton sports on Monday and  went next to Oroville to help celebrate  the Fourth of July.  '��������� The people of Penticton' and Oroville are both awaiting news from the  Great Northern headquarters as to  when operations may be expected to  begin for joining up those two points  by a branch railway.  A complimentary dance was given  in Fraternity Hall on Friday evening  last in honor of Mrs. Thain who expects to leave for the coast in a few  days. There was a good turnout and  ; a pleatant time was spent.  The Siniilkameen had a little experience in climatic extremes last week.  On Monday June 2-1 there was a maximum temperature of 100 degrees in  the shade and on the Monday following a fire was necessary for comfort.'  Mr. Norman'Plass returned on Saturday from a two weeks' trip to Saskatchewan,-where he had gone to  look after some property interests  which he has there. Mr. Plass reports  great improvement in that part, of  Canada's great west.  Mrs. Cornish of Trail came in on  Tuesday's train to visit Mr. and Mrs:.  E. H. Williams. Her sister, Miss  Williams, has gone back to her home  in England. Later on in July Mrs.  Cornish will go over On Okanagrn  Lake where she will be joined by her  husband and they will have a few  weeks' holidav.  C. E. Oliver left on Saturday for the  coast. He did not appear to have intimated to anyone how long.he intended to be gone, biitdoubless he will be  back shortly as the ore deposits of  Camp., Hedley and the chances for  landing a prize, among the undeveloped claims of this camp are not to be  equalled in any other mining camp in  the province.  C. AS. Shaw, the veteran land surveyor and railway engineer, spent a  couple of days at the end of the week  in the vicinity of the V. V. He E. station at Hedley doing some work for  the Great Northern after completing  some more work for them above  Tulameen. He is hale and hearty and  but for some lingering ill effects of the  accident received in the runaway up  at Voigt's Camp some years ago,  would appear to be as fit for strenuous work in the hills as ever he was.  ������  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  CAMP HEDLEY  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

Those requiring his services will do well to have it  attended to during July. The first  half of the month he will be found in  Oroville and the lastbalf in Looniis.  For a genuine holiday wrecker the  rain on Monday was the real thing,  and it affected seriously the attendance from here to the Princeton celebration. It rained enough in the  morning to frighten the timid out of  going and it kept at it so constantly  during the day that those who braved  the morning dampness had ample op-  , poitunity to rue their rashness.  Rev. .1. Knox Wright, agent for the  Canadian Bible Society, will occupy  the pulpit for Rev. A. II. Cameron iu  Kerenieos and Hedlev on Sundav.  July 7th, preaching at Keremeos at  11 a. in. and at Hedley at S p. m. when  it is hoped he will meet with good  congregations at both places. The  Bible, Society is an old and honored institution that has accomplished great  things in the past and is as deserving  of support as it ever was.  The train from the south   on  Saturday due at Medley at  11:30 a.   m.   did  not get in until the middle  of  the afternoon.
