Rushing-   Construction  Southward from Republic and Northward from Grand Forks, Because  Dominion Government will Not  Compel Minister of Railways  to Settle Right of Way  Matters at Hedley.  Word conies from Midway that .1. H.  Kennedy, chief engineer of the V., V.  & E., who expected when he left heie  on June 10 to pioceed to Ottawa', is  still at Midway and is giving his wheile  time to construction work between  Midway and Oioville, and to the  branch up the Noith Fork. His ex-  pectation when he lett hele was that  a meeting would he held in Ottawa on  June 20th, bcfoie the Minister of Railways, as the Gieat Not them solicitoi  in Ottawa was endeaveiling to arrange  such meeting, and as soon afc auanged  Air. Kennedy would he w n ed to attend.  The fact that his movements since  then, as noted in Midway and Boun-  daiy papeis, shows that he has never  been further east than Grand Foi ks,  accoids with pnvate advices to the  effect that he had not yet gone to  Ottawa and had leceived no notice to  do so.  Meanwhile it ib seen iioin Spokane  papers and otheis in AVashuigbon," that  the Great Noithem has staitod con-  stiuction southwaid liom Republic  anel Noithwaid 'rrom Giand Folks.  Regaiding the Republic woik, the  Oioville Gazette says :  "J. J. Hughes, engineer in chaige,  who has been stationed heie since the  woik on the line fioni Midway began last year, will have chaige ot  the work out ot Republic and has  opened an office at the lattei place.  lie will not, howe'vei', leave tins place  pel manently foi some time, but will  s lend a pait ot his time at each office.'  And the Spokesman-Review   savs :  ���������'Fioin Republic, AVash., conies the  intounation that it is nuclei stood theie j expiessing a doubt .is to the C. P.

AVill the Star trot out its  information? Guess not. That information is piohahly like the names of  the North Atlantic Trading Co. It is  not for the public, but only to be  whispeied to someone who will promise faithfully not to tell. The Star  too is in the confidence of the Minister  of Railways, who. it says, "has asked  for further information tiom the Great  Northern engineeiing department,  WHICH CVXNOT HE MADE PUIH.IC, and  will give a decision as .soon as it is received." Heie is something foi Mi.  Kennedy to put in his pipe and smoke.  The Star intimates that he has been  neglecting his duty by withholding  fioimthe Minister some awful thing  .'which cannoc be made public."

Chief Engineer Helgoland  of   the   Great Northern  svstem.  Air.  Baldwin and others, by accusing them  of lying and insincerity in the representations  which   they   made during  the winter, spring and early summer  with  reference to   the  prosecution  of  work  in this valley.     No  one knows  any better than the Star, of the weeks  of marking time which the V., Ar. iv: E.  engineers   spent    at   Princeton    last  spring while'waiting orders  to begin  construction work between Keremeos  and Hedley���������orders which never came  because of the action of the Minister  of Railways in AIv. Laurier's cabinet,  in acting in concert with the C. P. R.  15.001 to hold up work in this vallov.    This  ���������15.30 Ki10Xvs all the use that the .Star is to  this   district.      it   would    rather   see  Hedley, Princeton,   and  the Sinn'lka-  meeii generally, get dirt than that any  well  merited  blame should attach to  any of its political favorites.    As late  as the first week in June Mr. Baldwin  was in Hedley and  showed his   im-  500.00  70.03  As Labor Dav has b\  tacit  consent  been reg.irded h\ the Similk.uneen as  Hedley's day, that date is now   suni-  cientlv   near   to   wan ant   some   mow  being made to get tho thing in motion.  The'committee who had the matter  m hand last yeai   haw* ucpiested the  Gazette to inform the public that they  have, a full statement showing everything that had been done in connection  with' last year's sports.     This statement the Gazette has gone; over carefully and has pleasure in 'congratulating the  committee, anel particularly  the sec'y-troa.s., Air. L. G. AlacHaifie,  on the busini������ss-liko manner in which  everything  is set   forth.     This  statement, while altogether too lengthy for  publication in full, embraces minutes  of all nmetings of the c:onnnittee; the  '   ' _   ini-  ouiits subscribed and amounts paid:  all correspondence in connection with  the sports; copy of the programme;  receipted accounts for disbursements,  and a full statement of receipts and  disbursements showing a balance on  hand of $7.83.  In  former years, when asking subscriptions, the canvassers were often  met with the statement that no  account had been given of finances from  the previous year's sports, and reports  were    in   circulation   concerning   the  same that were damaging, to say the  least.    Last year's secretary, however,  has taken   effective  moans   to  silence  that sort of thing this year and  has  taken care that last year's committee  are in a position to account for every  cent that came into their hands.    This,  is as it should be* and we are sure will  have  the effect of causing citizens to  subscribe   more   readily    when    they  know that their contributions will be  proporlv haneilexl and-duly accounted  for.  The Gazette- has been rccpiested to  call a -meeting of all those interested  in sports for this year to be held on  Friday evening, 20th inst., in Fraternity Hall, at S o'clock p. m.

Oliver, who left last DeO-  cmlrer to spend the.winterwith friends  in England, returned on Saturday.  Mr. Oliver was sin-prised on his return  to find things so haekwai-d in the matter of railway building,' hut isconfident  that in this as well as in that of mineral development, we are on tlie eve. of  a great awakening.  The Chink who drives tlie venerable  gray horse and peddles vegetables  therewith, affoitled a little diversion  to hvstaiulers at the Great Northern  and Hedk*y House, by perpetrating a  runaway on Monday last. The Chink  was not within reach at the time and  tho old nag, which was standing -untied, after watching ii couple of cowboys on a bit of a liender, thought  wise to contribute a little'number of  its own to the programme. No ewie,  would have believed that the nag  could rim fast enough to wreck anything, hut it did, and a little bill of  repairs to 'the. delivery wagon ; was  necessitated. a  METEOROLOGICAL.  It has been thought that the  days of railway .subsidies were  over, .and occasionally an innocent   chirp from   some    backwoods weekly will  take  credit  to the Liberal party for  bringing about the abolition of railway bonuses; and yet the ses-.  sion   of the  Dominion   parliament   at  Ottawa just closing,  shows over $9,000,000 voted for  railway bonuses, most of which  goes to the old province of Quebec.    A  few  obscure roads   in  British Columbia hr which party heelers of the administration  at Ottawa, are interested,  come  in for a little over a million  of  it.    So it looks a trifle premature  for  any one  to   make  a  claim that^railway bonussing is  a thing of the past  in  Canada.  Railway  bonussing  in  Canada  should be a thing of the past,  after Hill has come in and built  roads without aid,   but nevertheless Canada will continue to  shell out to  the Grand  Trunk  Pacific for decades to come.   Of  all the iniquitous railway bonussing  that Canada   ever did,  that was tlie limit, inasmuch as  it was given when the  business  of the country was sufficient inducement for railways to  build  without aid.     The building  of  of the Grand Trunk Pacific  at  the present juncture has  been  the worst possible thing for tlie  Similkameen and we aie feeling  it every day.    All southern British Columbia is feeling it more  or less,  but the   Siniilkameen  and localities similarly situated,  most of all.    In  tlie  Boundary  they  have had transportation  long enough to enable  them to  develop their mineral resources  to the point of large  pay-rolls  and regular dividends, and thus  they can command their  share  of public attention, but here  it  lias caught us at the worst time  and is keeping capital  away  when we need it most. And yet  southern British Columbia gave  its assent to this sort of thing  by helping to send  to Ottawa  " a solid seven."    Possibly they  may like the way it is turning  out.

Swimming in the Similkameen has  lreen a favorite diversion during the  hot spell.  i  .1 udge Spinks has returned to Vernon  after a year's treatment in hospital in  Montreal.  A new instalment of books from the  provincial travelling library reached  Hedley last week.  Martin Burrill, of Grand Forks, has  been "gazetted a'member of the Provincial Board of He >rticulture.  Lang Bros/, c>f Pt'achiahd, are putting in a^new saw mill to' replace the  one destroyed by fire a few days ago.  Mr; John Dean, a former mayor of  Rossland, came in on Tuesday's stage  and went.on to Princeton yesterday.  J. D. Brass is putting up a double  house on the corner of Webster and  Ellis stree'ts. Each will have three  rooms.  D. G. Hackney was in town hist  week. Mr. Hacknev has beeu down  in the lower part of the valley for a  few weeks.  The log drive is coming on in good  shape and will he down to Stirling  Creek in a few * days, quite a few of  the logs having reached there already.  Mr. and Mrs. Cootes, M. and Mrs.  Bragg and Mrs.s Brule spent three  days camping out at Wolf Creek.  They took advantage of the lay-off at  the mill for this outini/.  C. S. Stevens, superintendent of  Dominion telephone and telegraph  lines, says that a contract will lie let  for supplying poles for 80 miles l>e-  tiveen Penticton and Nicola.  A meeting to make arrangements  for Labor Day celebration in Hedley,  will be held in Fraternity Hall, tomorrow (Friday) evening, at 8 o'clock,  p. in. All citizens are reejuested to  attend.  Mr. and Mis. Geo. Shelder returned  on Tuesday from Ontario where they  had gone to" visit Mr. Shelder's relatives. Mrs. Shelder went east in the  early spring and Mr. Shelder about a  montli agol       '     '  .0. A. Brown went out on Friday's  stage. So carefully had he followed  the injunction to let not the right  hand know what the left hand doeth,  that there is a leather medal for any  cine who can tell whither' he. was  hound./  The Gazette was pleased to receive a  call on Monday from an old friend,  Mr. GV B. Bash of Greenwood, who  was making a flying trip to "Bear  Creek. Old times and friends at Mc-  Kinney and the Boundary was the  theme, and all know how pleasantly  an hour or two can pass under such  conditions.  Harry Walton who has been educating the tastes of bon vivants in Hedley for the more aristocratic brands of  budge, and maintaining the fame of  his illustrious ancestor, '* Ike," as boss  angler, left on Wednesday morning  for the coast, going out by way of  Nicola. Harry's Hedley friends wish  him succes.  Dr. Mathison, dentist, of Greenwood,  is at present at Sumnierland and  Peachland. His original programme  was to be in Hedley before this time,  but for obvious reasons he is leaving  this part of his itinerary off a few clays  longer. He may, however, find it advisable yet to come in before the end  of the month.  The. post office on Rock Monti tain,  known as Maud post office, of which  H. S. Edwards was postmaster, is being moved to McBride's, with D. Mc-  Bricle as postmaster, ft is not known  yet whether the name of the new post  office will be McBride or Bridesville.  In view of the fact that the; new postmaster has recently been married to a  charming voting widow, the latter  would be the more suitable; name and  doubtless will be adopted.  Mr. H. 13. Brown informs the Gazette  that the account of the bear and bulldog fight appearing in the issue of two  weeks ago, while correct in most  essential points scarcely did justice to  the old dog, which, alt-hough muzzled,  tackled the bear repeatedly and was  badly wounded in the fray. The item  might be construed as casting a reflection on the courage of the: old dog,  although no such meaning was intended to be conveyed, and the clog's behavior did net deserve any slight of  that kind. The Gazette unqualifiedly  begs pardon of this valiant bull-bitch,  which, although surviving amurderous  fray in which her two plucky sons  were laid low, acquitted herself most  creditably. And why shouldn't one  apologize as readily for injustice done  to the genus canunr as to the genus  homo ?  Mr. Wright, of tlie Spokane Diamond .Drilling .Co...went out on Friday  meirhinjg's stage for Spokane. Drilling  on the Hummingbird is meanwhile  going on as .before in charge of Mr.  Connors. Mr. Wright has had .trouble  with ones of his eyes, and the haul  strain put upon it in his work of  diamond setting has made matters all  the worse;, by pre'venting any improvement, anel so a little treatiiHint and  rent became imperative.  Mr. A. C. Stoess, P. L. S., who .has  been doing engineering work for the*  Messrs. Armstrong at Keremeos, was  in Hedley on Tuesday night! Mr.  S.toess is an old C. P. R. engineer, having been in the employ of that company during the. construction of the  main line in the early eighties, and he  watches with keen interest the pmsent  movement on the part of the C. P. R.  to build through the Yellowhead Pass,  which he always believed te������ be the  best route.  Mr. 'John Highmau, of Vernon,  District Deputy Grand Master of No.  9 District, under the jurisdiction of  the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and  Accepted Masons of British Columbia,  arrived in Hedley on Tuesday night  under special authority from the Grand  Master to constitute and dedicate  Hedley Lodge, which was recently  granted a warrant by the Grand  Lodge. Other brethren of the mystic  tie are expected in this evening from  Vernon and other points in the district.  The head gear-of tlie gravity tram  at the central station gave out again  last week, and there not' being ore  enough ahead at the mill to keep going, a shut down has resulted until  repairs can be effected. A new shaft  for the head gear which had been telegraphed for, arrived on Sunday, and  a cement foundation has l>een put in  with the hope of making it hold,  Scarcity of men is the reason given  for having insufficient ore ahead to  provide for contingencies of this kind.  " There was news from Keremeos on  Saturday evening to the effect that  there had been a cloudburst down at  the railway construction camp the day  before. The camp was reported to  have been nearly washed away. Fuller  particulars are not to hand. The  Great Northern has been having considerable experience with this phenomena, a rather serious cloudburst  occurring   last   week   near    Gilpin's  ranch below Grand Forks, which  washed out some of their roadbed and  temporarily^ ..demoralizing telegraph  connection as "'well.  f HOTEL I  I HEDLEY i  Under   New  Management  THE   BEST   PROVIDED  ..IX  KITCHEN .VXD  BAIL  A X X)   E V E it Y    CAKIS  TAKEN FOB THE COMFORT OF   P A T It O X S.

Upon tlie erection .'nf   a   school     building    by   the  Government, the trustees will be in  a  position to rent the building for a residence and the revenue  will'very 'materially help out the expenses.   The  Government have passed an appropriation for a two-room school-house*, and  they have given us  three lots 25 x 100  feet each.    The trustees  have  applied  ��������� for an acre adjoining from  the  reservation for play-ground  purpose's, and  expe-ct to ge*t it.    A piece of ground  75 x 100 feet is far too small to put up  a two room building to care for 100 to  120 children, anel the board would  be  in a position tu^ll.this  property, and  buy ncljoiiij-Hg the '..school,   aud fence  ���������anei _lx~Ti������i^i^spectable looking place  anel not in danger of the, children being  too close   to   near-by   residents,   and  thereby becoming a nuisance to such.

It  was decided by the meeting that $200  additional should be appropriated.  An item in the receipts showed that  the Board had this year collected some  $45.00 in nun resident fees.

Mr.  Henson's  force  of graders who were  brought in from  the Northwest last  fall  and  who  during the winter and  spring   completed   several   miles   of  grading  below  Keremeos,  instead of  coming on to work in this portion of  the valley, transports his entire outfit  back to Midway to be hauled hack by  rail to the Northwest.    Will the Star  have the hardihood  to say  that  the  base'of supplies being back at Midway  was the cause of the removal of Hen-  son's force'back to the Northwest instead of coming farther up the valley  when his contract was finished below  keremeos ?    It is undoubtedly the delay caused by the action of the Minister  of Railways in the matter of right of  way at Hedley which is responsible for  it, and the peoole of the Similkameen  will  neither- forget it to the  political  tricksters  who  have, sold them  or to  the Star, who   would  insult their intelligence by publishing such stuff as  characterized   its   utterances   of   last  week.      The    Gazette,    too,    outlined  months ago the   probability that the  delay   here   might   be    the   means   of  compelling   the   Great   Northern    to  build the Midwav-Grecnwood branch  in order to hold their men.    The starting of the work   up   the North   Fork ,  from   Grand   Forks,   now  shows how ]  nearly the- Gazette was to the  mark, j  What will the Star sa v if the building !  of the branch southward from Re-pub- j  lie: to connect with the Great Northern j  'at   Wenatehee should   result  in   preventing completion of the V., V. & K.  further  up  the  Siniilkaiiieen   than  Hedley, or  perhaps  even  Keremeos ? j _������  Would it continue to hug the Minister   *������  of Railways, whose order of April 27th  11 ready wrought so niiie-h harm to  1?o hiake good bread you  must have good flour.
