Baknes, Prop.       Penticton, B.C.  Canada's Natal Day Honored at Penticton  and Princeton.  In celebrating the. occasion, the Siniilkameen divided its attention on  July 1st. between Princeton and Penticton, but Princeton took the. lion's  share from Hedley for obvious reasons,  not the least of which was that the  distance was less than half that to the  lake town. With the lower pare of  tho valley it was different, and as a  result Penticton got a sprinkling from  Keremeos and lower down. The presence at Princeton of the Keremeos  baseball team was the loadstone that  took most of those who went up the  yalley from Kerenieos, outside tho  players themselves.  The sports committee at Princeton  and residents of the town showed commendable enterprise, some of the residents contributing most generously  towards the prize list, especially in the.  horse-racing events, P. Swanson of  the Great Northern Hotel giving $100  towards the half mile free for all race,  aiid the Hotel Tulameen, .$75 toward  the quarter mile free for all.  The weather was ideal, barring the  he-at and the dust, but these are always to be expected .at this season of  the year, and those who take in the  holiday, make up their minds to put  up'with this discomfort.. The attendance was large, all parts of the valley  being represented. f  The principal event was the baseball tournament, for which it prize of  ���������$100 was given, and three, teams���������  Keremeos Hedley and Princeton-  were entered for it. The programme  arranged by the.-committee"'.was to  have Keremeos and Hedley opeu the  ball and Princeton play the winners.  In "this first match Keremeos had the  easiest kind of a walk-over, beating  Hedley by a score of 20 to 4. Then  Keremeos went up against Princeton,  whose box was manned by a whirlwind pitcher, and the. team had also  some heavy batting talent. The three  bagger made by J. Campbell, who was  the first to bat for Princeton, as well  as the dismay caused hy the Princeton  pitcher's delivery had a disconcerting  effect upon the'-Keremeos players.  Keremeos had won considerable cash  in the morning game, sand forthwith  re-invested it on what they,considered  to be the same kind of security, and  when a well defined bear movement in  such secursties developed itself in the  V. V. & E.  PROGRESS.  A   Faulty  Estimate    as  to  Completion.  Date  of  Ths Keremeos Trumpet is evidently  out considerably in its estimation of  the length of time necessary to complete grading to Hedley when it mentions October as the earliest possible  date, and cites 60,000 yards of rilling  yet to be done. Even if 00,000 yards  of filling Should be the quantity remaining to be,done, there is a steam  shovel to do it that is good for from  800 to. 1200 yards per day, and 150  graders besides, who' are' working on  other portions, and who should be  good for considerably more than "the  steam shovel. .  A prominent official connected with  J. AV. Stewart's construction force,  when asked about the. estimate treated  it with ridicule, and said that with the  bridges and trestles which the tracklayers have to put in, they, (the track- j  layers) if they started in to-morrow to  lay the 20 miles of steel between Keremeos and Hedley, wouldn't be delayed  an hour by the graders.  The big rock cut opposite the sawmill is completed. The party of ltal-.  ians who have been working,on smelter fiat will finish their contract by  the end of the week, and the-only unfinished portion between Hedley* and  Ashiiola crossing after this week will  be confined to a length of two miles in  the neighborhood of Fifteen Mile  Creek, considerable portions of which  stretch of two miles is already completed,-and a large force working on it  besides the steam shovel.  Then on the other side, the river there  arc a few little pieces'that can very  soon be done. The short length of  time necessary to complete these is  the main reason why they are in no  hurry to start them until the river  goes down a little more.  ���������All the while a little steel is being  brought to the end of the track, which  is about a mile this side of Kerenieos,  and one of these .fine day*.- the tracklayer may start in without' even  asking leave from Kerenieos.  MIDWAY AND VERNON.  Indications for Resuming Work Better  Now Than for a Long Time.  Developments of the last three weeks  in the railway situation have revived  the,Jiopes of dwellers on the Kettle  liver. The cross country trip made by  C. P. R. officials between Nicola and  Midway recently, has been followed by  measurements of M. & V. grades, by  C. P. R. engineers, evidently with a  view to arriving at a basis of valuation  for taking over'the portion of the M.  & V. road built by that concern in the  summer and fall of 1905, when grade  was constructed most'of the way from  Midway to Rock Creek.  Should the C. P. R. use this piece of  grade there would be no longer any  doubt as to the route they, would take  over the range of mountains between  the Kettle river and the Okanagan.  for it would be,impossible to use the  M. & V. grade to Rock Creek and go  over the range by way of Sidley  .mountain.  Their routef would undoubtedly be  up the West Fork of tlie Kettle and by  way of Wilkison creek on their road  to Penticton.  When this road is built there will be  lots of good ore for them to haul from  West Fork mines - to the smelters of  the Boundary.  FOREWARNED  IS  FOREARMED.

Hi  The "Old Reliable" Shoemaker  He Zibler  SHOES MADE TO ORDER.  SHOE and HARNESS REPAIRING A SPECIALTY  early stages of this second game, the  kicking began.   Many of the spectators were ungenerous enough to think  that Keremeos hoped  to save  their  cash by stopping the game on a dispute  and that they relied more on reaching  bases   by getting    hit with the ball  than in getting connection with it by  bat; but the  speed developed by the  pitcher soon made the Keremeos soreness physical as well as mental,  and  argued against king continanee of this  policy.    That, however, is mere opinion on the part of certain spectators  and may or may not be correct.    The  version of the case given in the Keremeos Trumpet's report of the match  would indicate the contrary-    At all  events the score stood 5 to 2 in favor  of Princeton- when an  irreconcilable  dispute   arose which  ended in Keremeos refusing   to contiuue ������and   the.  umpire   declared   the   game    against  them 0 to nothing.  NOTES  Bert Harris says there wasn't any  booze in the wagon that took the  Hedley team to Princeton.  ^ It is an open question whether the  Hedley canine mascot sought retirement under the. sidewalk because of  the showing made by the team or because of the old-fashioned, unstylish  style in which he had been dressed.  That Princeton pitcher's speed,  curves and lack of control was a heartbreak to Keremeos batters. His balls  were bad to bat with the funny bone.  Hedley hase-ballers are in a class by  themselves���������-the kindergarten.  Kerenieos 20, Hedley -I. Shades of  Wes Rodgers, Messenger and Percy  Watson,   "what a fall was there ! "  Spectators voted the Priueeton-Ker-  eineos match the grousiest, scoldiost  game of the season. At one stage of  it there was Mo mortal minutes of rag-  chewing during which not a ball was  thrown.     Tlie   Princeton  players   in  During the past fortnight the provincial treasury was helped out to the  extent of nearly $200 .as the result of  supplying liquor to Indians. One  white man and three Indians contributed.  A great deal of this illegal selling  has been going on lately .and many of  the offenders who'are tramps, that are  here to-day and away fco-inorrow, are  hartl to get at. Some of the railway  navvies, partly through ignorance of  the law and partly from recklessness,  having been taking desperate chances  and more of them will be landed very  shortly if they don't let up.  As for the Indians themselves, it is  about time they were able to recognize,  the fact that if they will take liquor  from any scallawag that comes along,  they run a big risk of getting let in for  it, for there are lots of ways of getting  at them.  It may be to the advantage of all  concerned to know that the punishment for thi.s ofience can go as high as  $300 fine and G months' imprisonment,  and the lightest is a fine, of $50.  this altercation wen; obstinate, and  those from Keremeos proved eligibility for membership in tho ancient  order of apple-women.  Some Hedleyites count the Princeton pitcher another edition of Wes  Rodgers, lacking Wes'.s control.  Every team is allowed to have a tail-  end, but when the tail-end extends up  between the shoulder-blades, the caudal appendage is too capacious.  The Kerenieos Trumpet hit the ball  square for a home run in reference to  bluffing, betting and challenging to  bet on the Held, which it calls a 'sport-  spoiler and breeder of ill-feeling."  Simiucamkhn i.uauuk standing  The most interesting item for this  week's "Tit Bits" is the Dominion  Day sports, which were undoubtedly  the best ever held in Penticton. The  ,Press' says they were, the best ever  held in the valley. I will not go as  far as that, but from my own experience during four years' sojourn in  various parts of the Okanagan, I must  say I have yet to see anything in the  all-round sports line to touch those  held here on the 1st.  A glorious day and a good-humoured  crowd are good foundations for a start  and being blessed with both, the various events were easily run off without a hitch of any sort.  The w������ ter sports comprising twenty  events were started sharp at nine and  swimming and. sculling races interspersed with diving competitions, were  the order of the day till one < ������'clock,  when everybody adjourned for lunch.  The S. S. Aberdeen, with excursionists from up-lake points arrived about  10 a. m., also bringing the Kelowna  City Band, which discoursed sweet  music during the day.  The Horse Races and Athletic sports  were held on the new race track and  athletic grounds recently purchased  by public subscription from the S. O.  Land Co.  The most exciting race of all was  the final for the half mile open, Innis  winning by a very short head.  Racing finished about six, and after  a hurried meal most of the crowd assembled on the wharf to see the finish  of the aquatic sports. Those who attempted to walk the greasy pole have  no kick coming about it not being  slippery enough, a five lb. tin of lard  being used in the. process of greasing.  After the last event was over, Mr. &  Mrs. L. AV. Shatford distributed the  prizes to the winners of the Aquatic  and Athletic events. These were all  purchased from the various stores in  town. Mr. Shatford spoke briefly,  congratulating the committee on having held such a successful day. The  The Band then played tho National  Anthem, and the excursion party after  giving three times three  and a tiger  We in Hedley who have an abundant supply of absolutely pure water,  have but little idea of the fear and  trembling with which other places less  favorably situated approach the heated  season. Typhoid which has in receut  years gathered in its yearly harvest in  adjoining towns, has had no terrors  for us in Hedley, Where it has never  yet claimed a victim, and where the  one or two odd cases that have existed  were directly traceable to disease  germs taken in elsewhere and developed here as an inevitable consequence  of the previous infection. In many  cases of typhoid-stricken towns the  local press has failed to do its duty and  instead of sounding the necessary note  of alarm and pointing out the means  of prevention, have had recourse to the  almost criminal policy of concealment.  To its credit be it said the Keremeos  Trumpet has adopted a saner, manlier  and more humane plan, which, may  save valuable lives if the advice be  followed. The Trumpet, in referring  to the matter, says :  "At the risk of appearing over solicitous, we again ask the citizens of  Keremeos to consider the question of  getting a pure water supply. In such  a.climate as this, and with shallow  wells in low-lying soil, disease and  death will follow the use of such water  as we have now as surely as night, follows day. It can hardly be called less  than criminal to wail for an epidemic  to force action. The towu is not far  enough advanced to warrant the in*  stallation of a regular waterworks system, but what could and should be  done at.once is to bore a deep well at a  central point and set up the ancient  institution  known as a town  pump.  The cost would not be much, levied on  the whole town ; and it is not conjecture, but a moral certainty, that if  some such move is not made the penalty of neglect will be an accession of  business for the new cemetery. In  the meantime all water for drinking  should be  boiled."  Besides the   matter of pure water  supply there are other sources of danger that it is well to guard against, and  it is doulitful whether in Hedley, all.  has been done that might be, to secure  immunity.    Unfortunately in  laying  out the townsite,   the limited amount  of space at their disposal prompted the  owners to follow the all too prevalent  plan of small lots, and a plot of ground  25 feet byTOO feet is too small for a  residence,  even  when  a householder  buys two lots.    This forces too close  proximity of outhouses to dwellings,  and only  the   tremendous  depth   of  coarse gravel and  boulder till   upon  which the town is  huilt has served to-  keep our health bill so  clean.    What  Hedley needs is incorporation,  which  would enable us to obtain  a sewerage-  system and inaugurate a plan of closet-  inspection and oversight of premises,,  that would ensure absolute healthful-  ness for all time to come ;   for there is  no place in British Columbia as favorably situated as we are to maintain  a.  clean  health bill with   a little   care.  Meanwhile   the   Provincial   board of  health should use all  the  power  they  possess to make the most of things  as they are.  CANADIAN YACHT WINS.

Mr. Blake  was greatly in evidence during  the recent Ontario ��������� elections,  taking the side of the-conservative administration for a wonder, and in the affairs of the  Anglican     synod    of   Toronto,  Whose   animal     meeting   closed j equivalent to .ten"per cent, of the amount of  , ������ the tender, winch shall be forfeited if the party  last week, Mr. Blake, as he has  done for years past, took the  most prominent part, and was  ridiculed by the Globe, for some  of his utterances, whereupon  the Telegram remarks : Canada  would live a richer, more inspiring life in church, state,  press and parliament if each of  these spheres of national activity could be invigorated by the  individuality of an S. H. Blake.  The curse of Canada is her lack  of individuality in her church  synods, conferences, general assemblies, in her parliaments  and in her press.- Everybody,  clerical and lay, editor and politician, is trying to be like  everybody else, and to slip  along into the similitude of  some adored effigy of earthly  success.

Walker's Weekly is  well written, artistically printed, and  if the business people of Enderby continue to support it as they are doing  at present, they will show the outside  public that the town is some good yet,  even if one paper had been starved  out.  Mrs. Doran has the sympathy of the  entire, community in this second great  bereavement she has sustained in the  death of her child, which occurred on  .July 1st at Bradshaw's.

The remains were interred  in the Nickel Plate cemetery, the funeral cortege going up the mountain on  the gravity tramway, it was in this  cemetery that Mrs. Doran's husband  was buried about two vears ago.

At the present time there is a, strong  competition between the man who  rocks the boat and the boy who  doesn't kmiw the gun is loaded.

Charles Godfrey Leland said that on  his first meeting with Carlyle the wise  man showed himself in a. somewhat  cynical frame of mind, from which he  was aroused only by a bit of wholesome opposition.  "And what kind of an American may  you be���������German or Irish or what?"  Carlyle asked.  "Since it interests you, Mr. Carlyle,"  replied Lclaml, "to know the origin of  my family I may say that I am de-  sqended from Henry Leland, a noted  Puritan, who went to America in 1G36."  "I doubt whether any of your family  have since been equal to your old Puritan great-grandfather," growled Carlyle, and this, combined with some  slurring remarks which be had previously thrown out in regard to America and, her history, roused Leland's  spirit.  "Mr. Carlyle," he said deliberately, ���������'!  think that my brother, Henry Leland,  who got the wound from which he  died standing by my side in the War of  the rebellion, was worth ten of my  old Puritan ancestors. At least he  died in a ten times better cause. And  allow me to say. Mr. Carlyle.; that I  think in all matters of historical criticism you are principally-influenced by.  the merely melodramatic.and theatrical."  Carlyle looked utterly amazed and  startled, though.not at all angry.  ."Wliot's tliot ye sayV" he cried in  broad Scotch..  Mr. Leland repeated the remark. A  grim sm.ile as of admiration came over,  tlie stem old face. It was with a deeply  reflective- and not displeased air that'  he replied, still in Scotch.,  "Na,' na. I'm. nac thot," he said. And  ho  dropped  into a  milder-strain and  made tho interview an. occasion to be,  treasured long in memory..  Is  A  IN HEDLEY  ��������� . ��������� ���������   ...

AN   ELECTION  TRICK.  One  Sample o������ tlie DoilRcs to Whlcli  They  Resort  In   EnprlundL  Canon .1. George Tetley tells the following story of the lute Justice Den-  man, who in ISGo ran for election at  Tiverton, in England. lie was advertised to address the electors on a certain morning. In order to fulfill his  engagement it wa������ necessary for him  to leave by the 9:15 express; He had  taken the precaution of ordering a cab  overnight and was quietly eating an  early breakfast when attention was  called to two or three men who seemed  to be hanging about in the neighborhood of his house. He thought little,  however, of the matter, but presently  sent his servant to put his luggage on  the cab, which was due to arrive. The  cab approached the door, but before  the portmanteau could be located one  of the mysterious strangers jumped in  and was driven rapidly away.  And when this happened a second  time it became evident that something  very definite was intended. So Mr.  Denman consulted his watch, and, directing his luggage to be sent after  him, he buttoned his coat and, calling  to his aid all his old Cambridge training, took a bee line for the station. He  met not one empty cab till too near the  terminus to be of any service to him'.  He dashed through the "booking office" on to the platform, seized the han-  dle~ of a carriage door as the train was  actually starting and flung himself into  a compartment.  On arriving at Tiverton he found his  committee in a slate of extreme anxiety which gave place to astonishment  and relief on his appearance, for the  walls of the town were covered with  placards warning the Liberal electors  that their candidate would not keep  his engagement to address them.
