Couldn't Stand Freedom.
Vernon, B. C.
In ji former issue a little series of
notes by the way, left us at Brideville,
on the doAvn grade for Kettle River
valley, and the green waving hillsides-
all about, covered witli a healthy crop
of grain of \-nrious kinds is apt to produce a very favorable impression upon
Avay-farers, if passengers seated in
Great Northernjpoaches can be termed
such. Tho most stiiking feature after
tho train-pulls out of Brideville station
is the engineering problem that had
confronted the surveyors, and in the
solution of that problem they "didn't
do a thing" to Davy McBride's ranch
Avhich is carved up Avith huge scallops,
there being at one point no less than
three parallel tracks for possibly the
battel* part of a mile���each being at a
different elevation from the others.
A few miles f urthe.r on the track" is
on Frank Edwards' benches and from
t-hcui a  magnificent A*ie\v is obtained.
Over to the. northwest Baldy mountain
looms  up beyond   Camp   McKinney,
and   tlie  morning   being   beautifully
cleats the whole green basin filled with
sundry ranches,  looking over towards
Fred Schorn's,  is spread out to ATiew,
while off to the northward the farther
view of Rock Creek basin conies into
vieAV.  From Edwards' bench the track
leads round to the south bank of the
main Rock Creek, over the Anaconda
and other mineral claims, Avhile northward across the creek the Hatton settlement of prosperous ranches can he
seen, although occasionally screened
>as the train skirts through chimps of
timber.     Along this  south bank of
Rock Creek Avas much heavy rock cutting, and before the truck turns southward into Myers Creek valley it passes
through a small tunnel.
The Myers Creek valley runs north
and south and crosses the international
boundary, but the main line of the
railway does not cross the line here.
It runs along either side of the \'alley
in the shape of a, long condensed letter
U or ox-bow, the curved Uase of which
comes within 20 feet of the boundary
line, where it crosses the valley on a
high trestles
The station "by which Myers Creek
valley is served is Myneaster, called no
doubt after McMynn brothers, avIio
Avere pioneers of the valley and owned
the principal ranch in it. From Myn-
caster a spur has been constructed
across the boundary in the direction
of ChesaAv, but as yet no steel has been
laid on  it.
Myers Creek Avas at one time an excellent trout stream and from all appearance it .should still be: so. The
creek narrows into a canyon at two
points between the McMynn property
and its mouth on the Kettle river, and
between these points lies a beautiful
stretch of meadow, land formerly
known as Nicholson's meadow, but
now OAvned by F. Richter. A tunnel
900 feet in length is passed before, the.
trade emerges out on the Kettle river,
Avithin sight ot Midway.
It Avould be difficult to find a place
as much spoken of as Michvay in relation to raihvay matters, with as little
raihvay activity. Nevertheless it is today in possession of two rival raihvay
systems, and therefore a competing
point, butAvhile there you Avould never
think so unless someone whispered it
in vour ear.   The Great
Intoxicated with his liberty and  Avith
over-indulgence in fire-water, Jimmy
Jameson, half-breed, on  Monday last
dropped into his old  habits arid proceeded to make himself a nuisance  as
.before.    It Avill be remembered that in
the summer of 1005 he got into a beastly fracas Avith an Indian named Francois on Keremeos Creek, and Avas committed for trial at the assizes,  where
he was given four years in   the* penitentiary.    Last fall there   Avas some
talk of ge:'tting up a petition  to get
him.out, and   A\*hile   it   Avas' thought
that the  parties, (some uf them   irresponsible) who proposed  it had dropped the matter when they were given
to undersaand that the public did not
approve of lessening the penalty, it
iioav appears that"they didn't but that
a petition was evidently circulated on
'the quiet, and as a result ho was liberated cm ticket-of-leave   on   June  4th.
Last Monday he was in town and after filling up started  his old trick of
abusing people; trying to pick eiuar-
rels and shouting.vile language on tho
stieet. vfhe constable Avas not on hand
at the time, but on his return heard of
it, and, assisted by  N. B. EwarL proceeded to   look   for   him   when   they
found hiin drunk on the* Indian  reservation.    In resisting arrest he acted
.very badly, biting  Mr.  EAvart's arm,
and had to be handled pretty roughly
before they got him in.the cells.
Charges were laid against him next
day by Constable Sproule, -and on
Tuesday evening he came up before A.
Megraw, J. P., Avhe> committed him to
gaol for six months on the charge of
"drunk and disorderly" alone, the
other charges being held in abeyance.
Jamieson appears all along to have
been one of those, turbulent spirits
Avhose bent-for lawlessness is such that
to alloAV him to run at large is to invite the commission of more serious
crimes, fen- as one old-timer up the valley has said, "if he Avas not kept locked up he Avould either kill some one,
or some decent man would get into
trouble by being forced to kill him."
Settlers on Sterling Creek,  as Well as
Pollock Mines, Handicapped.
(Greenwood Ledge.)
By reading the account of the recent
fire in Grand Forks in five iicavs-
papers Ave have-discovered that the
fire started in the Yale hotel, in the
Union hotel, in the Square hotel, back
of the Clarendon restaurant, and adjacent-to the Clarendon. Until Ave go
over to Grand Forks Ave Avill not believe that there avus a fire in that city.
If so, then the ruling passion is strong
in death, for it is not reasonable to
suppose that the fire broke out in five
places at once. If there really was a
fire in Grand Forks the losers have
our deepest sympathy, for it always
tears our heart to learn that the fire
fiend has decended upon even a wicked
burg and Avith its lurid breath blown
away in a fe.AA' hot and hurried moments the accumulations of years.
Grand Forks has had many trials and
tribulations during its brief life, but
its citizens must not lose heart. They
still have the smelter, Martin Burrell,
and one of the finest fruit ranching
sections in this glorious Dominion.
Here Ave sire Hearing the end of July
and there is not yet safe fording of the
river at any point near the Pollock
mines. With the' single exception of
the. bridge at Keremeos, not yet built
beit to be completed this summer, there
is not a bridge-over tho ' Similkameen
river in British Columbia, between
Princeton and the international-boundary, a distance of over GO miles of
river. This is not fair to the settlers
on Sterling Creek, nor to the claim
owners on that silks of the river, for
it means that for a large part of the,
best-time in the year' no '.communication except by row-be*nt is possible.
The owners of the Pollock group
haA'e expended a considerable amount
in development of their property which
work has been handicapped by lack of
proper* communication. ,    "
Several bridge sites can be procured
in that vicinity where the river lends
itself to economical construction to
such em extent that a bridge could be
built at very much less cost than that
entailed in any oi* the.three bridges at
Princeton or the one. to be constructed
at Keremeos.
With the Pollock mines equipped
for production, the government avooUI
very soon be re-iiubursed for. the cost
entailed in**building a bridge, and Avith
this encouragement given them more
of the land available, for occupation up
Sterling creek and in the mountains
thereabout, would be taken up by
Noav is the time to get'this improvement laid before the government
through the representative of the district Avho thoroughly understands the
situation and we are sure would be
pleased to take the matter in hand.
While he probably couldn't manage to
have it done this year .there is a possibility that he might have it undertaken
in time to be completed before high
water in 1909.
Meanwhile it Avould be well Lo have
the ground looked over and the most
faA'oreible spot picked out and an esti-
made of the cost. Nothing is gained
by sitting still when important im-
provements are needed.
Dominion Government Follows Example
of Provinces, With Some Distinctive
Features of Difference.
Col. Sam Hughes chose an opportune
time for advocating recognition on the
part of the Dominion Government to
the Smith African Avar veterans, at a
time when .the government Avere distributing much, largesse to help out
the forthcoming Dominion elections.
The proposal is to grant tAvo quarter
sections of land to each.
Mr. Oliver's plan was to grant it to-
all'volunteers who.reside or were'domiciled in.Canada at the, time of,their
enlistment for military service in
youth Africa ; that hi eveiitoi,a\7ohin-
teer's death betAveen the date of his
enlistment and-Dec. Bint, 1910, the proposed grant of land may lie made to
his legal representative, and that any
person entitled to choose scrip in lieu
of laud may give notice before Dec.
31st,   1910.
. The grantee or his Mibstitutc is to
fulfil homestead 'duties and make his
entry before Dec. 31st, 1010, and begin
residence on the. land six months after
that date.
Much wrangling and cheese-paring
was indulged in as to Avhether this
would apply to those who eulisted in
Canada Avith Canadian contingents
only, or extend to those who enlisted
in South Africa.
It is well kn'OAvn that'political favoritism Avas rife at the time of enlistment
of the Canadian contingents and that
officers of pronounced Conser\"ative
leanings had little or no shenv of getting an opportunity to go either in
their e>Avn rank or several grades lower,
Avhile relatives of ministers Avere boosted to positions in the fence even above
the rank they held in Canada; and
many Avere forced to go either to Eng-

Among other things provided in the
big bunch of supplementary estimates
before prorogation, the charter of the
M. ��fc V. was extended from Midway to
Carnii, and a grant was also made for
subsidv betAveen Nicola and Penticton.
This is the most direct evidence yet
that the* C. P. R. are taking over the
M.  and  V.
The. C. P. R. .also hold the charter
for the line surveyed by Hislop between Penticton and Princeton Avhich
goes up Keremeos Creek, and they
Avould in all probability use it in connecting up Nicola and Penticton.
J. J. Marks came down from the
Golden Zone on Sunday and reports
the first mill run an unqualified success.
S. E. Hamilton, who. has. full charge
of the mill, spent several clays getting
things in shape before starting up. He
called first for a loAver grade of ore on
which to make the start and get the
plates in order and the Wilfley table
adjusted for steady Avork.
The stamps are 1050 lbs. and the surface rock, being of a-*friable nature,
shoAved that the duty per stamp Avas
going to be abnormally high. Low
grade and all as the ore Avas thought
to be that Avas first run through, the
pulp did not sluice over the aprons a
clay until the amalgam became very
much in evidence several hours ahead
of schedule time.
J. J. said that mill superintendent
Hamilton expressed his surprise and
gratification at this early manifestation of values from second grade rock,
and also at the high duty per stamp
Avhich already is seen to be over four
tons per stamp. This high duty per
stamp, hoAvever, developed an unforeseen difficulty in exceeding the immediate Avater supply, but this can be
remedied in a feAV days by means of a
short V flume, and all hands are nenv
at work putting it in.

Avas the move'to make the grant apply

An excerpt from the debate on the

Bickerdike and Schell (Oxford) spoke

Mr. Oliver intended that, but thought
it would be impossible to draft-a clause,
covering all cases.
Mr. Borden suggested at clause, but
E. M. MacDonald objected. This country should recognize only those men

Col. Hughes instanced the case of

Duncan Ross has apparently  accomplished the postponement  of the election in  Yale-Cariboo  a .month beyond  the date  set  for the  general   election.     In  this he has acted neither bravely nor wisely.     Four years ago  he had alongside'him the;riding  of Ivootenay to share the shame,  but Ivootenay has  this  time a  better general in Smith  Curtis  who is too resolute and wily a  fighter to bear   with  him into  the  campaign   any  stigma    of  faint-heartedness.   The validity  of all legitimate excuse for the  deferment was  removed  when  in 1896 J. A Mara who then  represented the riding with Ivootenay  thrown  in,  and not one  half the facility for public travel that now  exists,  considered  that there was  no  longer any  just reason for   postponement  and had the  election brought  on upon the same date as the  oth ers.   But apart from ��������� all con-  siderations of justice  or chivalrous treatment of an opponent,  the decision made by Mr. Ross  appeal's to us a  stupid blunder  on his part, even from, the lower  stand-point of expediency, and  before the ballots are all counted   in the year of grace 1908,  it  will be found to  have  wrought  hint more harm than good,   for  the public after all   cannot but  despise, the man .who -will  persist in the face pf  public disapproval in socking unfair advantage over an   opponont.     Four  years ago  when   Mi-. Ross  was|  first elected   the    public   were |  not given time  to   think about  the ethics of  the   question   but  alloAved the sordid argument of  prospective   material   gain   , to  dominate them,  and as soon as  the result of:  the  general  election Avas made known a considerable   percentage   of  Mr. Burrell's support lost interest in the  contest   and   contented    thcni-  telves with merely going to the  polls and recording  their votes  ���������many  not   even  doing that.  Mr. Barrel], however,  conducted the fight pluckily to  the end  and when the vote was counted  he was found to be so  near his  opponent    that   those    of   his  friends    who   had    practically  thrown up their hands a month  the-effect'that.there is a prospect of the embargo  which lias  for years rested  on .Canadian  ! cattle,   preventing   their   shipment to Great Britain, is likely  to be raised.  This unreasonable  prejudice hi the minds of British  stock raisers, .which caused the  embargo to be .placed on  our  cattle, has for years meant serious loss to stock-raisers in Canada.    The'Canadian'Live'Stock  Association   have < at   different  times endeavored  to find   out  what requirements would satisfy them, and expressed willingness to furnish  any  assurance  that was possible to be furnished  of the sound bill of health that  could be presented f or Canadian  (rattle, but all to no purpose until it became apparent that the  objection   was   commercial   in  character, and the real question  of disease or no disease cut very  little figure in the  matter.   If  the Premier's present hopes of  the likelihood of the  embargo  being raised are based on good  grounds, it will be welcome news  to Canadian stock-raisers.  Some profess to see in the immense territory of Ungava  which has been added to the  province of Quebec, a serious  menace to the constitutional  rights of other provinces, and  especially the smaller maritime  provinces whose representation  in the federal house is now very  small. By the terms of, confederation the representation  of Quebec was fixed at 05 and  the representation of the other  provinces were made to vary  according as their population  kept pace with that- of Quebec.  With the immense territory of  Ungava doubling the present  area of the province' of Quebec,  the effect which this may have  by way of increase in Quebec's  population is certainly calculated to furnish ground for serious  misgivings as to the outcome.  If Sir Wilfrid has any sinister  intentions of causing a state of  affairs which will result in ultimate domination of Canada by  the French Canadian element,  this plan of increasing the territory would be ,'iu insidious  method of-bringing it about.  The favorable reports of a  record crop in the prairie provinces comes most opportune to  help checkmate the hard times.  It is also likely to prove a determining factor in bringing on  the Dominion elections thi* fall.  Wm. Whyte, of the C. P. 11.  places the estimate of this season's crop at 125,000,000 bushels.  The Vernon News did good  work in keeping constantly before the public the indisputable  fact that in 189G there was no  postponement of the election in  Yale-Cariboo, which then contained Kootcnay as well and  the  means  WEST KOOTENAY DISTRICT AND S1MIL-  KAMISEX DIVISION OF VALE  DISTRICT. .������������������_���������"-'.

Stevenson arrived in town on  Sunday and on Monday proceeded  with hisOutfit to the group of claims  which he owns lying northeast of  Riordan mountain and on the line of  the new wagon road. ���������  A question frequently aski?d the Gazette is : "Did you ever see railroad,  building as slow as this- is?" Yes,  slower. This time last year they  weren't doing any grading, and now  they have something-over-'150-men  working.  Mv. R. V. Clement, barrister, of Toronto, was in town last week.

Marks and son accompanied Mr. Marks to Hedley on Sunday.  This is the first time Mrs. Marks has  been out from the Golden Zone since  since they went .there last August.  Heretofore the means of communication made it difficult to get in and out,  but now that the wagon road has advanced so far it makes a trip to Hedley quite an easy matter.  Walker's Weekly and Lowe.ry's  Ledge are waging a crusade against  vaccination. Whether Doc .Tenner  and the- whole horde of subsequent  medicos have given us a wrong steer  (metaphoric) in the mutter of bovine  lymph, or Lowery and Walker ar6  taking Fra Albertus too seriously is a  matter that only time will tell. But  as it was away back in 179(> when vaccination was accepted by the medical  profession it is tei be hoped that when  time makes up its mind to begin to toll  that it won't start to stutter.  This summer is proving to be au exceptional one in the matter of weather  and is establishing records for itself.  The earlier part of it was by all odds  the coldest since meteorological records  were first kept- in Hedley, and so far  as heat is concerned, although the  average maximum for any whole week  has nob exceeded that of last summer,  it has already shown days where, the.  lowest minimum was higher b*/ many  degrees than the lowest minimum on  any clay last summer. For instance,  on July 11th the lowest minimum was  70 and there was no day last year  when the lowest minimum went above  50. In the hottest of hot spells we*  could always boast cool nights to the.  extent that one required blankets to  sleep comfortably, but on that night  of the 11th, the blanket was found to  be quite superfluous.  Fishing in Similkaineen is better now  than it has been for years. .-���������'-  W.^.T. Maneryof the Lower Similkameen was in town on Monday. He reports ripe, fruit in his orchard, and  says that his peaches have .linen pronounced by an expert to be tho finest  to be; found, anywhere between Vernon and the International   Boundary.  All three smelters are again in operation in the Boundary arid still it is  said by parties from , Green wood that  the times there are still hard.

The Trumpet says that in. a few  clays Royer will have automohilesVon  his stage-route. This is a scheme he  has been considering ewer since  Phoenix was the end of G. N.

The.  nervous prostration that the Phoenjx  Pioneer then expected to seize upon  the,equine species in the. Boundary  because of the horseless carriage has  not yet become epidemic, but aecord-  -ing to the Trumpet, symptoms of it  may be expected now any day.
