HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  'Although'the '-response made .by the  Siniilkaineen river to last week's spell  of hot weather was much less than the  majority of people expected, it was  nevertheless sufficient to bowl over  fifteen more of the piles driven in the  river-bed for the V. V. & E. bridge at  Armstrong's. On Friday night' last,  and early on ��������� Saturday, the water  seemed to have reached its highest  this season, but did not remain long at  that until it began to drop. This was  very fortunate, for had it remained  long at high tide, the grade, on the far-  side would have suffered more than  the bridge itself. As it was, a good  deal of loose earth was washed away,  and for the past week the work trains  have been hauling material to'fill in.  The very substantial drop in the water which set in on Sunday and continued with the cooler weather of Sunday  night and Monday has relieved the  situation very much and it is hoped  that in a few days more work will be  resumed to replace the piling.  Until the. damage from washing out  of tlie grade has been repaired, little  can be done on the bridge-  Mr. Hale, the engineer in charge,  left last week for Midway but is expected to return in a few days now, as  the abatement of the flood offers  every encouragement for resuming  operations.  (Continued from last week.)  A legion of memories is associated  with these old placer grounds and the  romance of  mining in  those restful  days was in many > respects similar to  the mining camps of the states find  territories south of the international  boundary.   Measured by the commercial and not by the   poetical, value,  these -flows yielded their millions of  golden   treasure,  and   occasionally  a  rancher now snugly and comfortably  settled down is met who took an active  part in the search for gold along river,  creek,  bench and bar in early days.  No attempt will be made here to give  any definite figures representing the  gold production of those times.  Under  the conditions that prevailed it was  next to impossible to obtain correct  returns.     Hundreds of thousands of  dollars were-never, reported to the government officials and so an authentic;  record is incomplete.  Dynamic; geology, we are informed,  belongs hot only to the study of rock  .movements beneath the crust but also  to those on the surface, and the most  important class of stratified deposits  are the placers, and placers are described as detrital deposits of metal or  valuable minerals, especially gold.  The creeks intimately associated  with my subject will be selected for  the present. These are Rock and  Boundary. The first named has its  source in the neighborhood of Camp  McKinney, a few miles west of the  west fork of Kettle river and about the  same distance north of the international boundary a little west of the  119th meridian.   This creek flows into  the west fork of the Kettle near the I st0uk point to the fact that Mr. Jelly's  FOSTER'S WEATHER BULLETIN  A.  MEG RAW  NOTARY   PUBLIC  Conveyancer,  Ileal Estate.  Mines.

Penticton, B.C.  Washington, D. C, June 1st.���������Last  bulletin gave forecasts of disturbance  to cioss continent 3 to 7, warm wave 2  to 6, cool wave 5 to 9. Next disturbance will reach Pacific coast about S,  cross west of Rockies country by close  of 9, great central valleys 10 to 12,  eastern states 13. Warm wave will  cross west of Rockies about 8, great  central valleys 10, eastern states 12.  Cool wave will cross west of Rockies  about 11, great central valleys 13, eastern states 15.  This will be one of the two most severe disturbances of the month. Temperatures from the Missouri river  southward will average very high during the week covered by this storm  wave, and drouth will threaten in that  section. Extreme heat and drouth  will come later, and the effects of this  disturbance will partially indicate  where the later extreme heat and  drouth will locate.  About June 1st temperatures will  range a little high on meridian 90, and  this condition will slowly drift eastward. Coming in behind that condi  tion a little later will come a spell of  colder weather which will also slowly  drift eastward. Then, soon after June  9, will come much warmer weather  and severe storms.  The great drouth came in 1901 and  no period of eight years ever passes  without serious injury to crops. The  problem is: How can farmers and  planters manage to hold their crops  for best prices ? Heretofore the middle men have reaped more than a fair  share of the profits. Reliable long  range weather forecasts will solve the  problem.  old mining town of Rock Creek. Boundary creek has its source in the neighborhood of Greenwood and after taking a wide detour empties into the  main Kettle river near Midway.  At Rock creek in September,  1881,  about three hundred miners were at  work in the. bed of the creek and they  continued working in the gravel for  about a.-year, when in consequence of  reported   richer  diggings   north   the  force scattered and left for other "diggings," which was the  term used in  those days.   The ground worked was  tlie   gravel   filling  the  stream;    the  greatest thickness was estimated to be  about 16 feet with an average breadth  of 25 feet.   Every placer miner was allowed 100 feet following the bed of the  stream, the breadth being the breadth  of the valley.   Three or four adjacent  claims were usually worked as one enterprise by the  co-operation   of  the  owners.   The stream was usually diverted to one side for the purpose of  getting at the gold bearing ground,  and a sluice was made of boards in a  rectangular form and put up in an inclined position on rough  stone abutments and a stream of water was constantly maintained.  The gravel extracted from the bed  of the creek was thrown on a rough  grating made of pine slats and placed  about 2 inches apart. The floor of the  sluice was lined with pine wood gratings placed longitudinally. The gold  and other heavy materials fell into the  hollows between the gratings, where  they were protected from the wash of  the current passing over them. In  instances boards with shallow transverse notches and the latter being filled with mercury were used in addition  to and alternately with the gratings.  This arrangement was known as the  Hungarian riffle.  For the purpose of getting out all  the gravel it was necessary to establish  a system of drainage as the hold deepened. This was accomplished by installing a small undershot wheel in the  free current of the exit water of the  sluice,  which raised the water from a  Since early spring, fruit growers and  farmers, big and small, have lost no  time, in looking after their holdings,  and the result is seen in the luxurious  growth that everywhere meets the eye.  That magnificent stretch of alfalfa of  Frank Richter's, some 130 acres'iu one  block, awaiting the mowing machines,  is a drawing card that is bound to captivate visitors who come to'the. valley.  But it is his peerless orchard that  takes the. greater part of Mr. Richter's  time these days, and while he can get  hands to help in the haying he finds it  difficult to get competent help for  work in the orchard.  Last winter was a most trying one  to the fruit industry all over the continent, and in some of the warmest localities the trees suffered most. In  Mr. Richter's orchard the peach crop  appears to have fared worst, and portions of the orchard that were sheltered from the north wind seem to have  been less fortunate than those more  exposed. The apple crop will not be  as heavy as usual, but plums, apricots  &c, appear well-loaded. The damage  to his almond trees, some of which  suffered severely, is most regretted by  Mr. Richter.  In his orchard and garden he is waging ceaseless war with the weeds, out  of which he takes a good deal of real  satisfaction, for a rank growth of  weeds, as long as they are kept down,  indicates richness in the soil.  The young orchards setoiut last year  oh the Keremeos Land Company's property for themselves and those, who  purchased from them seem to have  come on very well, and the ground in  most cases is being kept in good order.  Along the range between Richter's  and Mrs. Daly's that has been supplied  with water from the new flume, are  many fine-looking young orchards,  some looking better than others, which  shows that individual holdings will  respond to the particular treatment  given them. One particularly healthy  one is that of Mr. Jelly, and some who  favor the idea of home grown nursery  OF TRADE  REORGANIZES  The Hedley  Board of Trade.

OREGON NURSERY COMPANY.  On a portion of their ground which  is down nearer the. level of Keremeos  ci-eek, the Oregon Nursery Co. have  commenced operations. They have 10  acres under lease in which they have  planted 10,000 dormant pear buds, 75,-  000 dormant peach buds, 1A tons of  peach pits, 50,000 apple seedlings, 50,-  000 apple grafts and 10,000 dormant  apple buds, and all seem to be doing  well, even the peach pits having broken  through the ground and started sunward. They expect to have some stock  ready for the market this fall and  much more next spring.  Much interest at present is centering  on the Webster estate, recently purchased by Mr. C. A. Macdonald and  now being divided into 10 and 5-acre  lots. The splendid results in fruitgrowing, or for that part, of anything  which Mr. Bullock-Webster attempted  to grow, has amply demonstrated the  value of the property, and only the  disadvantage of being cut oil' by the  river prevented it being better known  to visitors. The property itself is of  considerable extent, and when divided  up will support a good large population ; besides, the existence of other  farms over then? will demand the construction of a bridge in the near future, and then the property will be  next door to everywhere.  The meeting called for Monday evening last for the purpose of resurrecting  the Board of Trade was eminently successful, and members of the organization have every reason to feel encouraged that it will again pursue its  career of usefulness; for those who  may think that its efforts of two years  ago were barren of results, are not  well-informed as to Avhab had been accomplished.  A young growing town like Hedley  that is without some, oiganized body  to guard its interests and to secure  concerted action when such is required,  is out of luck. Lack of persistence or  of sustained effort has unfortunately  shown too plainly in our dealings in  the past, and will continue to do so,  unless we all of us make up our., minds  to shake oft' all tendency to listlessness  or sloth.  Monday night's meeting showed  some new faces, and while tlie old officers were only too willing to draft  these by a species of commercial conscription ; that does not mean that the  old 'nns will take any the less interest,  but on the contrary it is their opportunity to teach a valuable lesson by  showing how members may attend  meetings and aid in the work of the  Board, so that the new officers may be  spared the disheartening experience of  either finding an insufficient number  present to form a quorum or of seeing  quaker methods obtain in shoving  through the business.  J. D. Brass, as head of the old organization, occupied the chair, and in  opening the meeting outlined the direction that it was desirable re-organization should take.  A.  Megraw,   secretary-treasurer of  the old   organization,   presented  the  financial statement of receipts and expenditures,  showing total receipts of  $159.50; accounts paid, $75.02, leaving a  balance of $S4.ISon hand and in bank.  There were also outstanding accounts  owing by the Board,  of $10.95 in the  aggregate;   and   there was   due  the  Board from uncollected entrance fees  and   quarterly   dues   amounting   to  $119.50.

V. <fc E. in  location of their station and preparing  the yards by filling in with gravel  from the immense gravel bank at  hand, has wrought a complete transformation in that locality. This portion is close to the river and nearly  the same level, and at the period of  flood tide may not be as attractive to  buyers as later on in the season. In  all probability, the lots further west  may be more popular for a while, although some of the building operations  now under way are on the lower  ground. With the laying of the steel  and the inauguration of train service  a few weeks hence, this portion will  assume a much busier aspect.  The scrimmage between the construction crews of the C. P. It. and G.  N. R. forces in Myers Creek two years  ago, wasn't a patch to the circus which  M. K. Rodgers has on his hands in-  Alaska. In building the Copper River  & Northwestern railway, of which he  has charge, an opposition railway concern that is building into the district  has undertaken to oppose him crossing  their track.  Accordingly they have gone to work  and blown up his track at a certain  point of vantage. They were disposed  to carry everything with a high hand  and in the absence of constituted authority sufficient to cope with the disturbance, Mr. Rodgers made application to the government for United  States troops.  Earlier in the spring he mot with an  annoying loss from having a large  scow load of powder wrecked on transferring it from the boat to a, lighter.  Evidently Mr. Rodgers will conclude  that there are worse places in which  to work than British Columbia, where  acts of violence are, as a rule, severely  punished and property rights are respected.  70-  > THE  HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   JUNE   6,   1907.

Tiie activity in* land at Keremeos  and in the lower Similkameen, and the  recent purchase of Brushy Bottom,  has brought home to us in Hedley the  disability under which we lie in the  tying up of so much valuable, land  in Indian reservations. When one  drives down' the valley and compares  the. condition of some of the beautiful  flats between here and Keremeos with  land that is commanding good figures  elsewhere in the district and being  brought under cultivation, the handicap becomes'all the more apparent,  and the question of Indian reservations as brought out in the Digby Island and Metlakhatla reserves, takes  on a new interest.  From the conflict that has arisen  between the federal and provinicial  governments in regard to Indian  lands in the vicinity or' Prince Rupert  and the controversy over the same, it  appears that the exact provisions  made by the province of British Columbia with the Dominion were becoming so much obscured that a misconception existed as to the nature of  our obligations in that connection.  The debate in the legislature when the  matter was up last winter disclosed a  few features that should be followed  up, and it will be a great misfortune  for the province if party rancor should  prevail to such an extent that the interests 01 the province should suffer by  subordinating them to the interests of  parly. In the discussion alio ye referred to it caine out that the amount  of land which the. province originally  agreed to turn over to the trusteeship  of the Dominion for the use and bene-;  fit of the Indians, was only 20 acres!  per head and there was nothing in the j  ai-Crcenii-iil   to   warrant  the   inference!  I  that as the tribes decreased in population the same aggregate allotment  should remain with them.  In the Siniilkaineen if the total acreage held by them as reservations were  divided by the total bona fide Indian  population, it would show an acreage  per capita very far in excess of the  original allotment. It has also been  claimed (but whether this can be substantiated or not remains to be seen)  that the Indian census of reservations  in the Similkameen represents a number that is considerably above the.  proper number of bona, fide British  Columbia Indians in the valley, and  that the way in which the officials of  the Indian department have been fooled  is to bring in families  of Washington  The happy-go-lucky manner in which  the Canadian customs department is  administered, and especially its work  in this district was seen last week in  the visit of a, one-legged mendicant  tramp from the United States, to Hedley anil Keremeos. In the United  States, customs officials seem to be officials under the Immigration department as well, and no foreigner is allowed to land at any port for collection  of customs who is likely to become a  charge upon the country. Here a beggar practising his calling conies boldly  into the. country, sticking his begging  cards under the nose of everyone he  meets, and is allowed to do so, with  the result that he is not a week in the  country until he shows that he is as  proficient in thieving as in begging.  Fellows of that kind shouldn't be allowed into the country at all, and all  Canadian collectors of customs should  be inade responsible for seeing that  they are turned at the line, to go back  and do their begging and thieving at  home. The representative for Yale-  Cariboo should see that his constituency is i)ro tec ted in this respect.  Certificate of Improvements.

A one-legged beggar did the town  last week, and to help out the alms  he broke into a shack and stole some  raxors which he sold to a Chinaman.  In addition to the hotel of George  Kirby and the blacksmith shop of P.  Bromley in course of construction on  the new townsite, the Keremeos Land  Co. are putting up a temporary office.  .Tas. Reith of the Central Hotel is  rusticating for a week or two near  Princeton with his brother. Too long  hours and confinement to the house  has produced a run down effect which  only a week or two of rest could benefit.  The return baseball match between  Keremeos and Nighthawk, -which was  played at Nighthawk, reversed the  former match, the victory going this  time to Nighthawk on a score of 29 to  13. It was unlucky for Keremeos to  win last time on that 13 score.  ]\lr. C. A. Macdonnldleft on Friday's  stage but is expected back this week.  The work of dividing the Webster  property, on which .T. P. Gordon, C. E.  is engaged is going on briskly and the  property is to lie placed on the market right away.  Haying is now in full blast at Keremeos. Mr. V. Richter started in last  week on his first crop of alfalfa, which  appears to be better this year than  ever and will yield a fine crop. He has  130 acres of it, but is so well equipped  with labor-saving appliances, mowers,  rakes, gatherers and stackers, that a  large quantity of hay may be bandied  in a short time. ,  The work which the Keremeos Land  Co. did last year in cleaning out Keremeos creek has had a beneficial effect  in letting off the surplus water without any flooding of adjacent lands.  By confining the water to the creek  channel, too, it will have a better opportunity during flood-time of deepening its bed and making room for a  larger volume in flood-time.  The camp for the Keremeos Land  Co.s big water ditch is now established and they are ready to put all the  men to work who may come along.  As the course of the ditch interferes  with the present wagon road in parts,  they will change the road in several  places.   This will evidently mean an  NOTICE.  NOTICK IS HEREBY GIVEN that. 00 days  after date, I intend to apply to the Hon.

McGregor and W. Linton,  commercial travellers of Vancouver  were in to w,n this week.  One. hundred inen are. wanted by the  .Keremeos Land Co. to work ' on their  big irrigation ditch.  .LT. .Armstrong went out to Penticton on Monday morning, but is ex-  gected hack in a week or so;  Mrs. H.S. Joyner left on Wednesday of last, week for Seattle to visit  her daughter, Mrs. M. K. Rodgers.  The north end has been torn out of  the cyanide portion of the. stamp...'mill  to allow the addition of niore vats.  Mr. A. K.Anderson who spent the  winter in Wadswdrth, Nevada, returned to Hedley last week, and reports an  'enlovable trip. '���������  a*. ,   ' '  The Keremeos Land Co. are looking  for men,to work oh their big irrigation ditch, and will employ 100 if they  can get them.  .1. A. Nesbitt has opened up an implement iinporium in Penticton and  asks inspection of his wares. See his  announcement;  Mrs. A. D. Brdomfield, of Midway,  who has been visiting Mr. and Mrs.  Swanson, Princeton for a week returned on Tuesday on her way back.  The new steamer Okanagan is now  .making daily trips on Okanagan lake.  She reaches Okanagan landing at 11  a. m. and is back in Penticton at 6 p.m.  T. Bradshaw's ranch at Fifteen-mile  is pretty as a picture these days. He  has his irrigation ditch from Fifteen  mile creek working in good shape, and  the trees, grass and grain are alike  healthy and luxurious.  Mr. Henry Bahrs came in on Thursday night's stage, and took a run up  to the Oregon where work is still in  progress on the tunnel. On Saturday  he started for Loomis, but will be in  again in a few days.  J. Gillan was down at Bradshaw's  this week doing some pipe-fitting.  This spriug he has had lots to do in  that line, and has been called on to  relieve, numerous house-holders from  their, troubles. Though he performs  on the pipes, he doesn't claim to be a  piper.  Chas. Camsell, geologist of the Canadian Geological Survey, who is in  charge of the party which will work  Camp Hedley this summer came in on  Thursday last. They are at present  camped a short distance up Twenty  mile, and are running some base lines  preparatory to getting out the map  upon which the geological formations  of the camp will be plotted.  A number of land-seekers passed  through during the past week bound  for the Ootsa Lake country. They  were all from points in the United  States and while some parties were  doing the journey with saddle horses  and pack animals, the old prairie  schooner was plentifully in evidence,  the settlers taking along their families  and their stock of horses and cattle.  Jas. A. Dale was found guilty at the  Greenwood assizes, of the liiurder of  JosephCelle, at Carmi,;, and was sentenced to be hanged on July 18th.  Among the'smaller properties in Similkameen yalley to be picked up recently was that of Frank Thornton,  upon which Mr. Macdonald obtained  an option about a week ago. The  Thornton place is small, but if properly irrigated would make a valuable  holdinc.  AH the Imiians.il!. the Siniilkaineen  and Okanagan were out, at Penticton  for the. past week or more attending  the Corpus Chris'ti festival exercises of  the Romish Oblat Indian mission.  While, they were gone their holdings  were running themselves, and the irrigation ditches working as perversely  as they coulddeaviiig the portions that  needed water to shrivel up in the heat  and the portions that didn't need it to  drown out. ���������.. Down, at Charlie Squa-  kim's, his ditch was Hooding the road  for days and cutting it up.

Stewart and Co.  and instructions given to rush the  work with the least possible delay.'  It was always understood that J. W.  Stewart <fc Co had the contract, and  in November last their superintendent  drove over the route to size up conditions. If, as the Times says, there  has been any re-letting of tho contract, the inference is una voidable  that at some stage or other the intention was to defer building up further  than Keremeos.  Rev. R. W. Hibbert pi-cached his  farewell sermon in the Methodist  church on Sunday evening thus winding up a signally successful ministry  in Hedley. Mr. Hibbert had the fortunate faculty of being able to put  himself in the place of those with  whom lie came in contact and look at  things from their stand-point, and  while he never wavered from principle, this ready adaptability to circumstances and readiness to lend a, helping band had the desired effect of enabling him to get in close touch with  those among whom he lived and gain  their confidence. In going to Penticton he will not be so far removed but  that his Hedley friends may hope to  see him occasionally. On Tuesday  evening a farewell social was held in  the chmch which was well attended.  Refreshments were served, and a purse  was presented to Mr. Hibbert by his  friends in token of their appreciation  of his work here.

The sluices' were usually put up at a  higher elevation than was the practice  in European mines of that day, as'the  chief end was to obtain a rapid current  and, therefore, power to work over  large quantities of gravel, etc. in a  short time regardless of the loss resulting from such an inefficient method;  It was estimated at the time by  competent miners that the loss of gold  thus incurred was half the total contents of the entire ground.  The washing.of Rock creek gravels  in.18(11-02 was carried on continuously  for a period, varying" from three, to six  days according to the richness of the  material worked, when the water was  shut off and the contents of the sluice  collected. .These comprised two kinds:  (1) fluid amalgam from which the gold  .was obtained by filtering through  buckskin and the ignition of the solid  alloy of the remaining gold and .mercury and auriferous black sand which  was concentrated from ..magnetite in  the usual way.  it has been estimated by a competent authority that tho earnings of the  300 placer miners who worked on Rock  creek between September, 1SG1, and  September, 1S62, amounted to an average of $0.50 for every man that worked, or. a total per day for the whole  force of $1,950 or $585,000 for the year.  The same authority estimates that  only half the gold in the Hungarian  fifties was saved. Thus gold of the  total value of $1,170,000 was collected  in the sluices of Rock creek in IS01-02,  but half of it was lost in the process of  washing.  At Boundary creek, about 7 miles  east of Rock ci-eek, placer mining began a little later, but it was abandoned  about the same time that Rock creek  placers were deserted, due to the rush  to Cariboo and Oregon fields.  it was found in the early days that  auriferous-gravels were generally present in the lower levels of the Eraser,  the Similkameen, Pend d'Oreille, Kettle and Columbia rivers. The chief  points at which workings were carried  on were: (1) In the canyon of the  Fraser north of Fort Hope. (2) In the  south branch of the Siniilkaineen near  Vermillion Forks (in the vicinity of  Princeton). (3) In the lower part of  Similkameen valley between Haynes'  bouse and the Okanagan. (4) At Rock  and Boundary creeks, two small tributaries of the Kettle- river. (5) In the  lower part of the Pend d'Oreille. valley  near Fort Shepherd, and (6) at various  points on the Columbia between Fort  Shepherd and Fort Colville.  The placers on the south branch of  the Siniilkaineen were chiefly carried  on by Chinese and were abandoned at  the beginning of the winter of 1801,  but some desultory work was continued to the present day on all the placer  streams of early days.  On the lower Siniilkaineen and the  large rivers the time of working was  limited to tjie early spring, the autumn  and the early months of winter previous to and after the annual floods.  The ground worked lay between  high and low water marks and as  much of the ordinary bed of the ri veins could be unwutered by building  wing dams from the. shore. On the  Pend d'Oreille river a large quantity  of ujold was obtained from the small  and  irregular deposits brought down  PMPER1  Is  A  Good,  Safe   I nvestment  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.
