SHOE and HARNESS REPAIRING A SPECIALTY  Rear of Shier's Clothing Store.  13  Early in March, 1907, a few enthusiastic irrigationists concluded that  " irrigation in Western Canada had  advanced to a point where it was most  important that a convention should'be  held, and some cohesive effort made  looking to intelligent legislation ejn the  subject." They accordingly called a  preliminary meeting, attended hy a  nuniher of representative men from  the three provinces���������British Columbia,  Alberta and Saskatchewan���������at which  arrangements were made for holding  the* Convention at Calgary on July  17tk and ISth.  The gathering took place, and Avas  attended by a very large number of  representative delegates. A most *hi-  teresting programme of papers and  addresses Avas carried out, furnishing a  vast amount of information on every  phase of the subject of irrigation, a  great deal of valuable discussion took  place, and, in general, the convention  has given u stimulus to. the cause, of  irrigation whose effect is hound to be  very far-reaching.  Not the least item, perhaps, in the  list of what was accomplished was the  placing of the organization on a. permanent footing" under the title of the  Western Canada Irrigation Association, and the' perfecting of arrangements whereby the convention shall  become an annual one, to be held, in  turn, at various irrigation centres in  AVestern. Canada.  The; basis of representation has been  fixed asfollows:  The Governor-General of Canada;  all members of the Senate and House  of .Commons; all Dominion Cabinet  Ministers or any representative appointed by them ; the Dominion Commissioner of irrigation ; the Dominion  Superintendent of Forestry; the Director and Superintendent of Dominion  Experimental Farms; five representatives of the. Canadian Society of Civil  Engineers; two representatives from  each of the Canadian Railways, and  one representative from each agricultural paper in Canada.        \  The following representatives from  the Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia:  , The Lieut.-Governors ; the members  of the  Provincial-  Legislatures;   the  Deputy   Ministers of  Provincial Departments; Provincial Irrigation Commissioners; three each for all Irrigation and ^Irrigation Colonization Companies ; tAVo each for all agricultural,  horticultural, forestry and live stock  associations ; five each for all citie.s,v to  b j appointed by the mayor ;  two each  for Boards of Trade or kindred associations, to be appointed by the president  of the organization;  two each for all  toAvns, villages and rural  municipalities,   to  be appointed by the mayor,  overseer or reeve;   two  each for all  Canadian clubs, to be appointed by the  president of the club -,   the superintendent or  representative appointed  by  him tor  each  experimental or demonstration   farm ;   three representatives  from  other irrigation associations to  be appointed by their presidents.  The permanent officers of the Association, and such others as may, from  time to time, be added hy resolution  at any meeting-of the Association.  In pursuance of the arrangements  made at the.last convention, the Executive Board had already held several  meetings to settle details in connection  with the coming gathering, which, it  has been decided, will be. held during  the week beginuing Monday, Aug. 10.  It-is expected that a most interesting  programme will be carried out, which,  it is hoped, will include papers from  Prof. L. G. Carpenter, Director and  Professor of Irrigation, Colorado Agricultural College, Fort Collins, Col.;  Senator AV. C. Edwards ; A. E. Ash-  croft, Esq., C.E., of Coldstream ; J?S.  Dennis, of Calgary, and others. Another important feature \vill he the  comprehensive discussions anticipated  on the vital subject of Avater legislation. Further details will be furnished  in a later circular. It has also been  arranged to charter a steamer and give  the delegate's a trip down Okanagan  Lake, stopping at various points to  vioAV the; systems of irrigation now in  This three-day excursion down the  lake should be one of the most attractive features in connection with the  convention.  The following is the skeleton programme foi-jthe week:  Monday, Aug. 10th���������Arrive at Vernon, 11 a. m. Three business sessions,  at 11 a. in., 2 and 8 p. m.

The big flume at the Kettle Valley  Irrigated fruit lanels at Rock Creek is  now in use.   The fVuihe is 3 x 2 feet,  and is set cju a trestle, the top of the  flume being from 2 to 18 feet above the  ground   The.section just completed is  part of the! main ditch,-is 1,200 feet-  long, and with the other 2,000 feet under construction this season will complete the ditch to Ingram bridge, making it six miles in length.   At present  there   are  completed, ' besides   this,  ���������ahout tAvo   miles   of  latterals.     The  completion of this section Avill put 200  more acres under 'cultivation.  ���������  THE'IJULY   "ROD   AND GUN."  The eyes of not only Canada, but of  the world will be fixed during the pre-;  sent .month upon Quebec and the''.Tercentenary of its establishment. The  life story of Samuel de Champlain,  the founder, is told in the opening article of the July number of "Rod and  Gun and Motor Sports? in Canada,"  published by AV. J. Taylor, at Woodstock, Ontario, and the narrative of  the great explorers life will be found  entrancing reading  At an early hour on Friday morning  fire broke out- in an unoccupied hotel  building in the business portion of  Grand Forks. The fhe had obtained  so great a start before being noticed  that the local fire biigade had too great  a task on hand to hold it in check, and  two of the leading .business blocks  were reduced to ashes.  One fatality resulted. The charred  remains of Nelson Barnaby, of Malo,  AVashington, were found inthe ruins  of one of the hotels. ������������������ "  The places destroyed were as follows:  Yale hotel, loss $10,000; insurance,  $15,000.  .Victoria hotel, loss $8,000; insurance  $5,000.

Mr. Camsell's  Party  Makes Good Progress���������Bradshaw's Canyons Try  the Topographers.  The Geological Survey party are  making good progress these days, and  particularly so in vie.AV of the*, difficult  character of the ground they are  covering.  The topography work is*, being done  by Mr. Reinecke, Avho has this year  joined the Canadian Survey. Mr.  Reinecke is a native of Cape Colony,  South Africa, and has seen much of  the Avorld in various climes. He had  been for three years on the United  States geological survey, but preferring to get on the British side elf the  line he has joined the Canadian survey  in Camp Hedley. AVhile having more  experience in geological avoi k than in  topographical, ho. has clone a great  deal of topography, but has not often  run up against as difficult ground as  he is now doing in the Bradshaw canyon; but notwithstanding the* difficult  ground they are making excellent-  progress.  Mr. Canisell and assistants aie busy-  working enit the geology and platting  it on the -topographical sheets. The  geological problem of Camp Hedley  becomes more interesting as well as  more complex day by. clay as they  work it out, and the ramifications of  the monzonite among the scdimentaries  looks on the. map like a huge octopus.  When they complete the sheet undertaken last summer, they expect to  go up the Tulameen fen- some special  work that has been laid out for them  in connection Avith platinum deposits.  The importance of the work they  have been doing in Camp Hedley is  becoming more apparent all the time.  The only thing Avrong Avith it is that  the area covered by the sheet is too  restricted. To make, it complete the  sheet ought to extend northAvard beyond the Golden Zone, eastAvard far  enough to take in Riordan and Independence mountains and westAvard to  cover Stirling creek.  The limited amount'of prospecting  done by claim-OAvners makes the work  more- difficult for them, :\ncl this* year  the absence of the claim-owners themselves is a draAvback, for much ihfor-,  mation is often obtained from intelligent observant prospectors, especially  if they happen to have dug plenty of  prospect holes.  ANNUAL  SCHOOL  MEETING.  Trustee and Auditor Elected���������Amount of  Levy Fixed for Year.  THE   BRIDEVILLE   ROAD.  both eastern and Avestern fishermen  operation or in process of construction. | something to think about.  to sportsmen, if of less importance,  to  the country, is the fine story of "The  Trail of the ICawaziiigeinns," by Harry  Aiiton   Auer,   author   of   the   North  Country.'   Mr. Auer describes in beautiful language,   the: trip he  took, into  the north country with his father and  mother and tells of tin; joys experienced in  camping and  fishing far away  from civilization.    This story is finely  illustrated from photographs taken by  Mr. Auer.     "In The Next AVest"  lets  in some light upon the new country to  be opened by the Grand Trunk Pacific,  and shows  that  new wonders await  the development of some of our northern and western regions.  "A Se'hool hoy's Search for an Ideal  A'acation," is a most interesting paper  ���������the search including a trip to the  old country, life in the backwoods of  Quebec, a jaunt to a fashionable wat-  ering place and the finding of the ideal  in tho Algonquin National Park. A  paper by Dr. E. Sisley on "The Fresh  Water Trout of Canada" Avill interest  all fishermen and may prove to be the.  source of as much controversy as Our  Aranishiug   Deer,   the*. Doctor giving  I. L. Deardorlf  returned   last Aveek  Of equal interest ] from the Eastern part of   the riding,  where he. had a look oyer  the highways and had a piece of road surveyed  in the vicinity of Bridesville  for gazetting.   This, it is understood is the  piece of road that Avas in litigation a.  few weeks ago.   It  Avas   made   some  years ago on D. McBride's land  by R.  Sehweers, Avith- the  owner's consent  and used by the general public.   This  summer Mr.  McBride fenced it and  laid out another road which necessitated climbing a hill.   The neighbors  had him brought before H. Nicholson,  J. P. who found him guilty  of trespass.    McBride  obtained   counsel   in  Greemvood who had the case appealed  and Judge BroAvn set aside the magistrate's decision, and in   doing so, required all roads to   be   surveyed and  gazetted.    Noav   the 'government, at  the unanimous request of residents in  the vicinity have surveyed the piece  or road in question, presumably AVith  the object of gazetting.   Had Mr. McBride used his own good sense iusead  of going to  Greemvood for legal advice he would be considerably  in pocket, for in many cases if the litigant  have any cash the advice obtained will  be in the interest of counsel and not of  client.  The annual school meeting  for the  Hedley public school was  held  in  the  new school building on Saturday last..  H. S. Joyner was elected  chairman.  and P. M. Gillespie, secretary.  The annual report Avas presented for  the year ending 30th June, 1908. and  this showed  the financial  position   of  the school to be very satisfactory.  -   The total receipts for the*, year Ave re  $1101.74,  and   expenditure    less  than  that by $2.67.   The total indebtedness  is now down to $129.55 of bills payable  and $27.00   accounts   payable.      Last  year the amount required   to be raised  Avas $750.00  Avhich Avas  levied  on   the  assessment   roll.      Of    that    amouut  $627.36 had been collected.    The  taxes  remaining uncollected from  last year  amounts to nearly that of outstanding  debt.  The estimate of funds required to be  levied for the year ending June 30th  1909 is $500 as against $750 last year  and this allows also for levelling off  the school grounds.  The retiring trustee this year Avas  Mr. S. L. Smith the efficient secretary  of the Board who has given more time  and attention to the Avork of the  school than any other member or citizen.   Mr. Smith was re-elected.  Mr. Gillespie was elected auditor; to  fill the place left vacant by the retirement of Mr. Hairsine. A vote of  thanks avus tendered the chairman  after which the meeting adjourned.  The programme of the Irrigation  convention seems to allow very little  time for inspection of ditches at Penticton, and that is where some of the  best irrigation AA*ork has been done in.  the Avhole Okanagau district.  f, THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, JULY 16, 1������)8.  rv  -di  HKflKiJ  .,.

All eyes at present, both in  .Ottawa and in the west, are  upon Sifton, and that gentleman apparently, delights in  keeping the in" all guessing. It  ���������was fashionable at one time  ywlieii the siate J. Israel Tarte  was a member of Laurier's cab-  sole cabinet representative for  the west, and saw during that  time, -the provincial government  of Manitoba' throw off the  Gi-eomvay yoke'of Liberal misrule and go Conservative. Just  how- much   that   circumstance  effected Mr. Sif ton's position  with Sir Wilfrid is not known-,  but it is very noticeable "that  from tliat time on Laurier, who  looks for results, deferred less  and less to Sif ton's ;, views, arid  wishes in the matter of policy  for the west*. That is plainly  seen in the Way Sir Wilfrid  forced on the autonomy bill  and also in the squelching of the  original election bill ..which Sifton wanted brought down during . -Fit/pa trick's" term as Minister of Justice, but which Fitz-  patrick refused to father, and  the bill, although' haying gone  so far as to be; printed in1 the  government printing office, never got before the house. That  circumstance added to that of  the autonomy - bill, accounts  fully for Sif ton's -' resignat-ioti;  and with: Sifton out, the hand-'  ling of'Templeman and Oliver  Avho were to Sif ton as a couple  of ehunksof puttyareto a piece  of brick-bat, was an easier task  for Mr. Laurier, but did not conduce  to the safer navigation erf  -- '' ' t.v, "   .."  the Liberal ship of state among  the shoals of western politics.  Whether of his own initiative  or urged by his colleagues J.and  followers in the house, Sir Wilfrid Laurier has of late;shown;a  certain degree of willingness to  I836  LANDS AND.:*WORKS.  N OTICK-is hereby given that the bouhda  of the  Nelson, Mevelstoke" iiricl'Sic  inet to call him the  the administration,"  to-day,   although 'no  "master of  but Sifton  longer a  member of the government,  merits more the title "master of  the -administration" than ever  Tarte did, but he sways it from  the outside. ���������     .  Those   who may  think   that  the urbane Mr. Laurier  is  too  courtly and agreeable to assert  his right- of leadership  and employ all the powers for domination which that position  gives  him   are  altogether   mistaken  in the man.   Laurier  is  to-day  the  most  pronounced   type  of  political   tyrant   that   Canada  has ever seen. Laurier'the leader of the government and thrice  confirmed in that right,   is as  . different    from     Laurier    the  aforetime leader of the  opposition as anyone could  well conceive of.    In opposition  he was  the  expert phrase-maker who  invented the expression "sunny  ways of patriotism" that earned  for him the nickname Mr. "Sunny ways," and that very circumstance more than anything else  gave to the public an altogether  mistaken idea of the man.    His  first cabinet Avas undoubtedly a  strong aggregation, but one by  one  the  strong   ones    dropped  out,   leaving only  the  weaker  ones     whoso   individuality   (if  tliey can be said  to   have  any)  can easily be merged in that  of  the leader.    Sir Oliver  Mowat'  for over  quarter  of  a  century  loader  oi  the  government    of  Ontario which lind during most  conciliate Sifton and  get him  back into the cabinet,  but. that  the  price  he   was requi red to  pay  by  way   of concession'i to  attain this end  was no light affair is-sbown by the dose Sifton  required-him-to swallow  when  the election bill which Fitzpat-  had repudiated   became a government measure fathered by  Aylesworth.    Borden's resolute  opposition to  this  bill put Sir  Wilfrid in a bad hole, especially  when it caused him to prevaricate    concerning    Fitzpatx-ick's  Hornier refusal to father a  similar bill.    The  whine about obstruction at Ottawa in opposing  the Aylesworth  bill was  used  for all it was worth to influence  the elections in ��������� Ontario    and  Quebec, but it was found to be  worth   nothing     for  Ontario's  answer was  so  emphatic that  the   Siftonian  clauses     of  the  Aylesworth bill  died   on that  day and   the   breach   between  Laurier and Sifton was  correspondingly widened.   That Sifton Avas not disposed *co  submit  meekly to the emasculation  of  his favorite bill,  is seen "by tho  vicious threatening editorial  in  Sifton's   organ,   the   Winnipeg  Free Press, which in  condemning the government's surrender  on tho election bill has  set the  public agog  to  find  out   what  it all means.

Carl made a heap of Avarm  friends in Fairview and Hedley, Avho  are sorry to see him go.   .  On Sunday morning a coyote made  a dash doAvn the mountain side behind Kingston Ave., and captured a  chicken from one of E. D. Boeing's  broods. The robbery was committed  in broad daylight, and witnessed by  several spectators, one of whom chased  a rifle bullet after him, but the coyote  beat an orderly retreat retaining possession of the chicken, and doubtless  taking valuable observations for future  raids.  .... Mrs. E. ET HardAvick, of Victoria,  arrived quite unexpectedly on Wednesday of last Aveek, giving her Hedley friends a pleasant surprise. She is  accompanied by her son Oxley, Avho  Avars a mere-baby when they left- hen-  two years ago. Mr. Hardwick came  with her as far as Seattle, and saw her  rafely on the Great Northern train for  Spokane. She expects to remain a  Aveek or two longer before returning  to Victoria.  ���������Mr. W. C. McDougall came in on  Mondays stage from the East. Mrs.  McDougall has been much benefitted  by the treatment received in the hospital in New York, and is steadily  gaining strength. She is now with  friends at Port Dover, Ontario, Avhere  she will spend part of the summer.  Mr. McDougall reports business quiet  in the east, the most engrossing fea-,  tores at present being the tercentenary-celebration at Quebec, and the  forthcoming-federal elections which  are generally belieA'cd in the east to-be  near at hand.  Forest fires are caused in only too  many instances, by campers and tourists who-leave their fires unguarded or  are in other ways careless about their  fires. Many of these holiday makers in  the woods avouIcI be-the last people in  the-Avovld to wilfully destroy timber in  this Avay, but yet a lack of care on the  part of some has often had a most lamentable result.  Occasionally what seem cases of apparently wanton carelessness are met  with. A flagrant instance of such neglect AA-as shown some time* ago by a  party of seventeen campeisfrom Hamilton, Ohio, in thcTimagami (Ontario)  forest reserve, who broke camp one  morning leaving quite a large fire burning. The campers, in their special car,  however, we-re stopped at North Bay,'  and not allowed to proceed on their  journey until they bad paid the. expenses of extinguishing the fire as well  as those of their own detention.-' Such  cases are fortunately, rare.  Attention to a few points may save  much loss from this cause. No match,  cigar end or other burning object  should"ever be thrown down in the  forest until totally extinguished.  Camp fires should not be larger than  is necessary, and should not be left,  even for a short time-*, until one is sure  they are "dead out." Fires should not  be built in dangerous places, such as  among leaves, near -rotten wood, or  an j- place Avhere they are likely to  spread. Avoid building a fire against  a large or a hollow log, for in such a  place it is hard to knoAV when the fire  has been thoroughly extinguished. In  Avindy Aveather a bole, should be dug  doAvn to the mineral soil and the fire  confined in this.  The Lake St. John district in Quebec, was.the scene of a fire, only a feAV  days ago. The fire AA'as caused, it'is  supposed, by fishermen Avho neglected  to extinguish  their camp fires.  Just what you require for  this  hot weather.

France.  - As regards the history of coaches In  France, Henry IV. was assassinated in  1G10. Soon after his death some engravings -were published representing  him being murdered in his carriage by'  Ravaillac. It is from these that we  get a fair idea of the coaches.  They are simply square boxes, measuring by scale six feet in length by  three and a half feet in width, on four  wheels'-of the same diameter, without  any springs.or straps and seating six  persons in till���������namely, two with their  backs.'to the horses, tAvo facing them  and two more, one ou each side of the  tAvo "boots" at tho side. Each A'ehlcle  had a roof, resting on light columns,  and curtains to draw or to let down.  This agrees Avell Avith the received  accounts of the incident, according to  one version of Avliicli Henry rode in  an open caiTi.-*,-.-'i*. and according to another that as soon as the fatal blow  was delivered by the assassin the  king's attendant who rode with him  in the carriage drew the curtains, and,  hiciii'g. the-king from public .view,- assured the enraged people that he was  only Avounded.���������Notes-and'Queries.

Mrs. Farragut asked the woman  courteously if she Avould not kindly  close the avuuIoav, as it was annoying  to her husband. The Avoman snapped  out: "No, I won't close the Avjndow.  I don't care if it does annoy him. I am  not going to smother for him." Admiral Farragut thus caught a severe  cold, which .resulted in his death. A  few days before the end came he said,  "If I. die, that woman will be held accountable."���������Exchange.

If every person knew that it is impossible to-,sink if one keeps his arms  under water and moves his legs as if  he Avere going upstairs, and that one  may keep this motion up for hours before fatigue ends it, there Avould b������  few casualties. Such is the fact. Except where cramp 'renders. motion impossible, the man who gets an unvol-  untar'y ducking has small chance of  droAvuing. He can generally keep afloat  until rescuers appear.

The castle in chess owes its shape  and name to a misunderstanding of its  old Italian name, "rocco," as if it were  "roeca " a castle or fortress. Tho words  rocco, rook and roc (French) come from  rohk, the old Persian name of the  piece, which was in the shape of an  elephant. Curiously enough, tho elephant carried a little castle on his back,  and the position of the piece on the  board seemed suitable for a castle.  .By Jupiter, Take  This.  The letter "11"' at the head of all pre-  scriptions is derived from the Latin  word recipe, the imperative meaning  "take." The little dart over the tail  of the "1*" is tho symbol of Jove, or  the Latin god Jupiter, and invests the  writer Avith his authority��������� by the poav-  er of Jupiter. Therefore the sign properly reads, "By Jupiter, take this."  Highest  maximum temperatur  e 76,  Average maxi mum  do  70.
