Rear of Shier1- Clothing Store.  13  The Gazette on a former occasion  gave a write-up of a tripi over the line  of the V.V. it E. between Oroville and  Grand Forks, and the only plea urged hy way of excuse for:; recurring to  the theme is thatwith different occasions different phases of the same  thing may present themselves.  When the former trip was made  there was no regular train service further than Oroville, although the track  had been laid to Keremeos and work  trains were busy getting the roadbed  ready for inspection.  - From Keremeos to Oroville is a  stretch of -11 miles'of excellent road  upon which the maximum grade'is six-  tenths of one per cent, and much of it  is in a dead straight line! although the  tortuousness of the canyon in the region of Shanker's Bend supplies the  lion's share of aggregate curvature. A  striking feature of the route, was the  prevailing wetness of the ground showing that the Similkameen river was in  flood. On the Canadian side, in the  region of Armstrong'^ Crossing, the  meadow land had been inundated and  the. whitish, turhid condition of the  water indicated that the flood was still  rising. At Cho'paka the customs fraternity become inquisitive and after  their curiosity has been' satisfied the  train proceeds down the river. At  Nighthawk sundry ore dumps are in  evidence, and a stamp mill is going iip, i  showing that the immediate hopes of  the people are based, on development  of the mineral resources.  Between Nighthawk and Oroville  the principal point of interest is Siniilkameen Falls, which is the only point  anywhere ou the river where its waters;  have been harnessed for the production  of power. Here an electric plant has  been installed .���������mil power is developed,  by which Oroville is lighted and the  company are reaching out for business  from outlying points. The present  plant does not appear to be. very extensive, but the situation appears to  be capable of enormous enlargement,  and it is quite within the possibilities  that this concern may yet transmit a  large, voltage for the operation of mining properties in Camp Hedley.  Oroville has made very fair progress  and with its well-lighted, level streets  presents quite a tidy appearance. It  is the town of one hotel and numerous  saloons, each trying to outvie the  other in blare and blaze.  A pleasant June morning offered  every opportunity for viewing the  beauties of that climb up the mountain  side between Oroville and Molson,  where an altitude of some 2,700 feet  has to be overcome, and the manner in  which the track romps hack and forth  between Dry gulch and 9-Mile creek  increasing a distance of some 10 miles  by the wagon voiul to 27 by the railroad, and increasing the grade of the  latter from .0 of 1 per cent, maximum  up the valleys to 2.5 up the mountain.  An interesting feature, of this piece of  road is the magnificent panorama of  the Okanagan valley which is spread  out with glimpses,of Osoyoos Lake in  which the sunny slopes of Okanagan  valley are mirrored in its placid depths.  Occasionally Oroville is seen at points  so distant that almost an hour's run is  necessary before it is reached. Wherever the track touched the basin of  Nine-mile the route of the old Osoyoos  trail could be seen. One marked  change in the country on Nine-mile  was the disappearance of a beautiful  tract of timber to the north of Charlie  Rineheart's. This has been stripped  partly for construction material for  the various  bridges, trestles and cul  verts, hut from it considerable quantities of lumber were manufactured and  shipped to outside points. Thus one  hy one our forests are disappearing  until in time the selfish waste and lack  of thought for the future will bring its  inevitable dire results until steps be  taken for reforesting these and other  depleted tracts.'  ���������From Molson a mile or. two brings  us back into Canadian- territory, on  Rock mountain, and here as on Sidley  mountain the crops are in excellent  condition. 'The view, of Old Baldy,  still snow-crowned, keeping. watch'  over the closed treasure vaults of Camp  McKinney, is to be had at various  points from the train when the air is  clear, and brings ��������� up old memories.  Brideville is the station for the ranch-  ing section of Rock mountain and  Sidley mountain, and here the traffic  to and from Camp McKinney and the  Hatton settlement on the sunny fertile  slope of the main, Rock creek finds its  point of embarkation. 'Hotel, store,  post" office and other requisites of a  conntry'station are in evidence.  (Continued Next Week.)  MINING IN  .

The adjourned annual meeting of  the Pollock Mines, Limited, was held  on Monday last at the registered office  of the. company in Hedley. There were  present, besides the resident directors,  a plentiful sprinkling of stock-holdei s  resident in  the town.  Mr. H. C. Pollock, president of the  company, occupied the chair, and Mr.  C. E. Oliver, secretary, officiated in  that  capacity.  The auditors'report was presented  showing the finances of the company  to be, in a healthy condition, inasmuch  as 78 per cent, of the treasury stock  which originally was fifty per cent, of  the entire capitalization, remained intact, and for the 22 per cent, of the  treasury that had been disposed of,  valuable property had been purchased  in the acquirement of the Copper Cliff  mineral claim in the vicinity of the  Nickel Plate, and in a large amount of  development work on the Pollock-  group  itself.  The president made a full and satisfactory statement of the development  work done during the past six months  as well as former work and the very  satisfactory. results accomplished  thereby.  The election of officers was proceeded  with and resulted in the unanimous  choice of the old board of directors, as  follows; Messrs. H. C. Pollock, C. E.  Oliver, H. \V. Yates, J. Gladden and  E. A. C. Studd.  These afterwards met and re-appointed H. C. Pollock president, J. Gladden  vice-president, and C. E. Oliver sec'y.  The last few weeks has witnessed a  splendid improvement in the property.  From the cross-cut in the lower tunnel  drifting has been carried on both ways  on the vein, reveling the fact that the  point where the tunnel intersected the  vein was the narrowest portion of it,  and not only has it widened materially  but has also improved in character  and in values.  The work done can therefore be said  to have proved conclusively a strong  continuous vein on the Martin claim,  and a good visible tonnage of payable  ore which will warrant them not only  in installing a mill' and tramway to  begin producing, but also in asking an  increased price for their treasury stock  to provide the funds.  The. directors are to he congratulated  on what they have accomplished during the past six months.  FARMERS'  INSTITUTE.  Meetings To Be Held at Various Points  in the District  Farmers Institute meetings will be  held at the following places: Peach-  land, Summerland, Penticton and  Keremeos during the second week in  July, on the Ilth, 13th, 14th and 10th,  respectively. W. S. Thorn ber, horticulturist of Washington college, Pullman and M. H. Dobie, of Victoria will  address meetings and give practical  field demonstrations. The Keremeos  meeting should be well attended, to  show the department of agriculture  that the Similkameen is in line.  Independence .Mountain.  The Hoi seshoe group of three claims,  ��������� owned"by Matthison,,and McDonald,  situated on one of the eastern spurs of  Independence mountain, was located  in the summer of 190Q and the first assessment done in 1907.- The ledge has  been uncovered for, some distance,  showing it to be at least 20 feet in  width. The ore is pyrrhotite and arsenical iron, carrying values in gold  and a little copper. '��������� The work done  during the year includes a series of  open cuts, the main one being 22 feet  wide and 10 feet face. .  The owners of the Anasis, Messrs.  Matthison, McNulty and Roderick, did  considerable work during the yeitr and  opened the big ledge for nearly the  whole length of the' claim. Some  white arsenical .iron that, was taken  out assayed high in gold. . ���������    .  The Dominion and Pine Apple are  two claims situated on the south-west  ern slope of Independence mountain,'  owned by Alex. Ford. A big ledge of  pyrrhotite (magnetic iron pyrites), including considerable garnetite carrying'yellow copper on the footwall side,  the outcrop being 35 feet wide. The.  ore is of good grade for a large part of  this width. The chief work done this  year was sinking the shaft to 16 feet  and timbering same from surface.  Assessments were done on the Cornell group, the Lone Star, King Arthur, Gordon group and some other-  claims in this camp.  Dividend Mountain.  Most of the. claims in this camp are  Crown-granted and no work was done  on them. The Scotia group consists  of five claims on the northern slope,  owned by McDonald and Wheadon, of  Olalla. Two parallel ledges, about 500  feet apart, traverse this group from N.  E. to S. W., the ore in both being  magnetic iron pyrites with garnetite  carrying yellow copper of pay grade.  Both ledges have been cut into in several places, showing the average width  to be between 10 and. 12 feet. The  work done in 1907 consisted of open  cuts along the leads to prove their continuance.  The Mountain Rose is owned by L.  A. Clark etal. The ore is pyrrhotite.  and arsenical iron, carrying values in  gold, copper and silver, and occurs between granite and quartzite. The  work done in 1907 was a 10-foot shaft  sunk in the lead, which at that point  is four feet wide.  The Nellie, owned by James Black,  shows a very large outcrop of the usual  pyrrhotite aid arsenical iron, opened  on in several places by surface cuts.  Assays show fairly good values in gold  and copper. Work done this year was  open  cuts.  Olalla Camp.  On the Mount Zion there, are two  parallel ledges about 1,000 feet apart,  both running N. E. and S. W., and are  about the same width, 8 feet. The ore  at surface may be termed high-grade,  carrying good values in gold, silver  and copper, but there is also some  pyrrhotite that is of lower grade. The  work done this year was stripping the  lower ledge and open-cutting the  upper one.  Dolphin.���������The dolphin is situated  one mile south of Olalla and three  miles north of Kerenieos railway station, and is most favorably placed for  economical working. Ever since the  start in November, 1900, work has been  steadily prosecuted during the past 12  months, with the exception of a few  weeks' shut-down this fall. . The working force has varied from six to twelve  men, and something like 100 tons of  ore has been stored for shipment. The  workings consist of 1,200 feet of tunneling and 60 feet of upraise, with  numerous open cuts all over the slope  of tlie hill. t There aie eight tunnels in  all, the longest being in 275 feet. An  aerial tramway was completed in No-'  vemher and is now working satisfactorily. The cable, which is 1,050 feet  in length, carrying two buckets of approximately 400 lbs. capacity, stretches  from the. portal of No. 1 tunnel to the  100-ton ore bin at the foot of the hill,  dumping automatically. A platform  has been erected at Kerenieos station  calculated to hold between 30 and 40  tons, and already about 20 tons have  been hauled from the mine, to the station. This shipment, which is to be  sent to the Northport smelter, is for "  the purpose of testing the actual value  of the. ore hy authentic smelter returns.  The. ore assays high in.coppei, and  profitable results are anticipated.  A large number of the claims in this  camp are Cro\vn?granted and only assessments were done on those that are  not Crown-granted. It is not necessary to enumerate them here.  BIG   DIAMOND   THEFT.  Thieves   Make   Away With  $12,000.00  Worth of Black Diamonds at  Rossland. ���������  The following news item appearing  .in coast papers will be of interest to  Hedley readers, as one of the losers,  Mr. Stone, is well known in the camp,  having done diamond drilling on the  Nickel Plate last summer. The despatch is as follows :  "Rossland, B.C., June 22.���������Eighteen  black diamonds and 60 diamond chips������  the lot valued at about $12,000, were  stolen from a workshop of the Diamond  Drill Company early Sunday morning.  The diamonds were the property of  Stone and Knight. Spokane, Wash.  Workmen fastened the door of the  shop on Saturday night, but failed to  place, the. diamonds in the safe. On  their return to the shop Sunday morning the door was found unlocked, the  key having been taken from its hiding  place. It is believed the robbery was  perpetrated by persons familiar with  the surroundings."  STRIKE ON THE  IDA K.  Dayton Camp in Eastern End of Riding  Again Comes Into Prominence.  News comes of an important strike  in Dayton Camp, en the Ida K. mineral claim, which belongs to Messrs. Win.  Younkin  and   Chas.   Hamilton,   who-  are also  the principal owners of the-  Dayton.   This camp is located on the-  ridge of country  lying between the-  north and south forks of Rock Creek,  about four miles south-west of Camp  McKinney.    The Dayton discovery in  the late fall of 1S99 ranked in  sensational features with the Cariboo and  Waterloo, and pannings from the gossan  outcrop resulted  in the recovery  of considerable quantities of gold bullion.    Indeed it has  been  thought by  not a few that the placer deposits of  White Bar,  from which $40,000 was  taken  in a single season,   had  their  origin from the Dayton,  and a shipment of ore from it to the Grand Forks  smelter gave a handsome  return,  but  no comprehensive plan of development  was ev_r pursued to prove the property.  Last year a bond was taken on the  Leroi, a claim owned  by  .1. Copland,  about half a mile  or less south, and  considerable development work done,  with encouraging results.    The Ida K.  lies  between the Leroi and the north  fork of Rock creek,  and a tunnel projected  for   further   development   of  Leroi  ground has  resulted in  a new  find  being  made.   There  is a piece of  ground covered by the  Myrtle, Home-  stake, Dayton, Ida K., Gem, Leroi and  other claims which would make a tidy,  group,  and the near future may see  some good strong company get on to a.  particularly good thing.  Mr. W. P. Rodgers is in Alaska,,  where he expects to spend most of the  summer. Mrs. Rodgers has gone  East to visit her friends at St. Stevens,  N. B.

In fact the Gazette is informed  that throughout the hearing of  the appeal in Greenwood the  rjroceeciiugs took cm very much  tlie form of studied attempt at  gratuitous insult to tlie provincial authorities, and abuse and  insult was freely offered, unchecked, to witnesses by counsel, to an extent which should  never have been permitted by  tlie bench; but the most disgraceful part of the affair so  far as tlie Times is concerned, is  that last sentence with its false  innuendo directed at the representative of Similkameen riding, which said  "The decision is particularly important inasmuch as it will make it more  difficult for injustice, to be done to  land-holders by M. P. P.'s disposing of  the monies voted for roads in ways  that shall re-act to their political advantage rather than to the general  good."  What lends color to the slander  is the fact that the  representative of Similkameen is  one  of  the   very   few .members   who  think it worth  their while  to  visit all parts of their constituency every  year and  acquaint  themselves thoroughly with the  wants of each section, and where  is there another instance of better value for the money expended oji public roads being obtained than in this riding'?   But as  for   any   interference    on   Mr.  Shatforcl's part in   the manner  indicated in that lying sentence,  or any injustice done by him-,to  land-holders, there    has never-  been such.     That his course in  this connection has been eminently satisfactory in this riding  is evidenced by the fact that as  warm     commendations    come  from   political    opponents   as  from his friends.   The Similkameen Star has always opposed  Mr. Shatford politically, but the  Star has   had   the   fairness  to  commend   frankly   his  actions  in  thus  personally   interesting  himself in seeing that each ppr-  ticm; of the riding has its" fair  share, and that valiie is obtained foi: tlie money expended;  It ill-becomes Duncan  Ross's  personal organ, the Times',  or  anyone else m: Greenwood   to  attempt to dictate to'the SimiL  kameen riding in the-matter of,  road-building.   There are those  in Similkameen riding who have  not  yet   forgotten    the   West  Fork fiasco and the part which  Greenwood and various citizens  thereof played in that gigantic  bungle in which  thousands of  dollars voted  for  the  roads  in  in this riding during the iucuni-  bency of  Mr. Wells found their  way irito Greenwood pouches,  instead of 'going on  the roads.  The Greenwood idea  of road-  building in that case, was a lavish use of transit and level with  a maximum  of supplies to be  wasted and a minimum of elbow  grease behind the shovels.   Under    the   present   regime   the  wholesale transit nonsense has  been cut out,  and the roads get  the money; but now it appears  that the same old trilobite who  was declared   responsible   for  that fiasco and Who, strange to  say, is still retained in the service of the province, is advocating the surveying and gazetting  of roads,   and   Greenwood    as  usual is backing him up.  about two-thirds  of the states  in which the sale of  li'cjuor is  made illegal, and' many more  Avhere      Sunday      selling     is  shut 'down' tight.     In Washington state Sunday'.-is'- a dry day,  the   bars  in   Seattle,   Tacoina',  Spokane and other points  re-  liiaiiii'ng closed.      The   proprietor, of the Kaiser hotel in. Spokane violated the law and was  heavily fined   on   two   counts.  The police have been given to  understand that rigid  enforcement is required  of them,  and  rather than lose their jobs they  are making all licence-holders  observe the restriction   placed  on1 Sunday selling. - The liquor  store men, on the  other liaud^  see in it an opportunity for gain,  and by a display of cards in the  window they invite  the  public  to buy from them a "Sunday  bottle!'*  THE BANK OF  I90S  ���������  EDITORIAL  COMMENTS  The enormity of the offence  sought to be perpetrated on the  people   bf   Canada   by certain  clauses. of the Aylesworth bill  niay be best judged by the expression    of   outside    opinion.  Here in Canada all .opinions advanced for. or against ave Pl,t  'down'.as indicating merely the  particular   party bias of the nidi v id ual  expressing  them;  but  when outsiders condemn an action or proposed action as being-  vicious in principle and  an evidence of moral turpitude on the  part of the people of this or any  other country vvhich  "would eif  ther practise or submit to it,  Canadians may well stop and  consider.    A few days ago the  Gazette had the pleasure of discussing  public" affairs   with   a  journalist of Tacoma who keeps  posted on the leading Canadian  questions of public interest, and  to  him the proposition in the  Ayleswoi-th bill   seemed   monstrous.     "You Canadians,"  he  said, "are in the habit of looking at the United States as a  country where political corruption is rampant, but if any congress or legislature in the United  States were to propose marking  ballots in a way that the secrecy  -of the ballot should be tampered  with or that the names of qualified electors could be left off the  lists by creatures appointed by  the party in power, the governing body responsible for such an  offence wouldn.t last a day longer than tlie constitution  would  permit of replacing them."    So  sacred is the right of enjoying  the   franchise unmolested,   regarded  by  the president of the  United   States  that   only   the  other day President Roosevelt  declared his views in unmistakable  language to the little republic; of Panama  and gave its  government to understand that  the election for that republic, in  which  United States capital is  largely invested/ must be  conducted on the square, and if necessary his government would  use force to ensure a square deal  to all electors in Panama.  A year or so ago, Rev. J. G.  Shearer made himself very prominent in this province by his  advocacy of the Sunday Observance Act. The copies of his  correspondence, with Sir Wilfrid Laurier which has been  made public, shows, however,  that there is more of the politi-  tician than the divine in his  make-up. His suggestions to  Sir Wilfrid as to 'how the latter  should word certain letters to  be read at the Presbyterian Assembly so as "to do good," are  interesting to say the least.

Miss Blake left on Friday morning  for -her home in Victoria, after a successful year's t-eaching in charge of  Hedley school; <It is Miss Blake's intention to enter the Normal School at  the beginning of-the'year, and while  she may be reluctant to come hack to  Hedley for the short tinie intervening,  it is to be hoped that she may decide  to do so. During her stay in Hedley  she has made many warm friends.  The trip recently made by 0. P. R.  officials Messrs Bury, Bnsteed, Wilson  and Gore, who drove fro m\ Pen ticton  to Midway has given occasion to . revive hopes of the C. P. R. starting in  shortly to connect the gaps between  Midway, Penticton and Nicola. Whether it may mean decided action (on  tho part of the C. P. R, in the near  future, or in the sweet by and by, re-  inains to be. Seen, but in any case, the  party of notables could count on a  very pleasant drive, and evidence of  progress on'evcry hand along the entire route and this should do them  good.  Mr. E. 0. Young, of Vancouver,  spent Sa.tnrday in Hedley representing the United Wireless Telegraph Co.  recently organized, of which he was  selling stock. This concern is a consolidation of the various companies  holdingcharters and patents in America, their only opposition . being the  English Marconi. Tho stock is a prime  favorite on the Coast, where six millions of the original 20 million shares  capitalization has been taken tip in a  few months, and the stock advanced  to a premium of 75%. The company  aims not only to carry on , a wireless  telegraph' business in opposition to  the" cable and telegraph companies,  but to manufacture plants and equipment as well, and thus collar all the  profits that maybe going.  * Last week, Mr  engineer of tlie V.

While visiting Mr. and Mrs. Sansom  in   Spokane,   Mis.  Dowding   after  a  short illness'passed away on  .lune '20.  The deceased   lady   was   one   of   the  pioneers of British Columbia having  arrived with her father,  Captain  Pittendrigh in New Westminster early in  Judge. Haynes,  removing to  Osoyoos  1874.    In  1875 she   married   the   late  Lake where the Judge had' his extensive stock ranch.     Here  hi an :ideal  *   home in this lovely spoti.slie, aided her  husband till his death in  1888,  dispensing a lavish hospitality, and to those  who can look  back   over   a   score   of  years is the'memory  of an old English  home with its kindly host and hostess  surrounded by a group of happy children.  The suddenness of her death  came  as a great shock  to her family and  friends, her immediate relations being  Messrs.    Val,,    Win.    and   Sherman  .Haynes, .sons ; and   Mrs. R. B. White.,  Mrs.  R. H.  Parkinson   and  Mrs.  R.  Gauloin, daughters.    Owing to being  out of the province some, of the mom-'  hers of the family were  unable  to attend the funeral which took place at-  Osoyoos on the 24-th.....    .  'The funeral service was held at the  old Kruger house, the wreath covered  casket being placed on the porch overlooking the beautiful lake and.residence which had been for so many  years the happy home of the deceased.  Though the notice of the funeral  was unavoidably short, a large number of old friends from both sides of  the line gathered'to pay a last tiibute  of respect to one whose goodness of  heart and kindly disposition had endeared her to those who knew her.   *  A touching evidence of sympathy  given by the Indians of the village of  In-Ka-Mip, who held an impromptu  service as a tribute.of gratitude to one  who in past years had always extended a helping hand to them in their  need.  The. Rev. Mr. .'Cameron conducted a  most impressive service, commenciug  with the singing of "Nearer My God  to Thee," followed by the Indians  who sang several hymns in their, native language. Mr. Cameron concluded with a touching and eloquent address to the assembled mourners.    .   .  A move was then made, to the head  of the lake where on a small knoll the  remains were deposited in their final  resting place. So we have to write  "Requiescat in Pace," over another of  the fast diminishing band of the real  pioneers. - ���������  PROPERTY  HEDLEY  Is  A  Good,  Safe   Investment  ��������� *  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate inounr  tain, on which is situated the famous '.'
