That the West Fork" is attracting  considerable attention'is evidenced by  the stage having to make two through  trips a weekjU^Beaverdell in.ozder to  meet the demands of travel and1 ex?  press freight; and what an enjoyable  trip it is at this season of the'. yeai>  through the upper Kettle River with  its picturesque scenery of rugged  granite mountains,.sometimes rising  almost .abruptly ������1*0111 the banks of,the1  l;iyer, ^sometimes, .sloping far, .back-,, the  wideniiig->valley.&affording-������.'homes^to  some' enterprising "settlers; r Avho������~ai*e  bringing the low lying Iieiiches   under  cultivation.    ^Westbi'idgc,   about -12  miles from Rock-^Creek," is   the"/irst  stopping place<whe"i,e..therev i.������"f-ii ^comfortable hotel, a store and Post Office;  being'situated nV the junction   of  the  West Fork and   Main   Kettle River,  Westbridge is to an extent the distributing point for the extensive mineral  belt lving  between   the   tAvo   rivers.  Thus far an admirable wagon road in  good condition  had   made   travelling  most  comfortable,    but   on    leaving  Westbridge   some  premonitory jolts  and blimps suggested an enquiry of the  driver as to the condition of the road  ahead, the reply was not encouraging;  .indeed to state it briefly,  the present  was a mild sort of purgatory- preparatory to what would be encountered  neater Beaverdell and such in  a measure .was true thp'  well  constructed  bridges spanned the river in  order  to  avoid .the  rougher ^portions   of  the  route, indeed"," the natural  conditions  of the countrv would have had to have  been changed to make possible an avenue out of a. rivev bed.    Tn the-early  construction of the road   serious mistakes had been made and  the generosity of the Government   abused,  but  under the present able superintendence  of Mr. Bate, great improvements  had  already been made and this  year will  doubtless see many-of the. .present difficulties removed.    :  '.' Our  singe   was   comfortably   filled  with oldrtimers returning to do work  on their properties, who beingfamiliar  with every poi.111 of i 1 lterest. on .the  road, increased the enjoyment- of the  ride with reminiscences of the early  days of the West Fork., Quite a .crowd  was awaiting the an-ival of the Vstage  at Beaverdell. Sunday being mail day,  the boys had come into town from the  surrounding   camps,   their contented  well-to-do   appearance   impressing   a  stranger with the fact that there must  be   something' in   this   West    Fork  country.  Beaverdell is pleasantly situated on  a level flat at the foot of Wallace Mt.,  where the Beaver, enters the West  Fork, and with the promising outlook  of such properties as the Sally, Carmi  and others may be destined to become  a flourishing mining town. Several  commodious buildings have been erected, the well stocked store of Messrs.  Keith and Ketchum supplying the  wants of the community. Here also  is situated the post office in charge of  Mr. Ketchum, who seems to spare no  effort to accommodate his customers.  Tom McAuley, one of the old pioneers  Of the Kettle River, is running the  Hotel Hamfll; and Mrs. Smith, also a  long time resident, has a most comfortable boarding house, where good  meals and well furnished rooms can be  obtained at very moderate, charges.

The Pollock'Mines, Limited.  ��������� Messrs. Studd,. Gladden and Oliver,  having purchased the well-known Pollock group of mineral claim*, have  formed the above"company and intend  to start work immediatelv.  and Boundary Greek Developing and  Mining Co. owning two groups,  the  Rob Roy and the Sally, consisting of  thirteen full and fractional claims, and  so far as at present known the most  valuable properties on the mountain.  Three miles of wagon road have just  been completed to connect the Company's mines   with  the   government  road, enabling the hauling of the high-  grade ore  to be continued  the year  round,   hitherto   the hauling having  been confined to the winder months,  when the ore was raw-hided on 'the  snow down the mountain  side.   The  Company have expended many thousand dollars in the development of its  properties,-both superficially and underground, the latter work being principally confined to the Sally,  where  very extensive tunnelling and ^toping  has been done under the superintendence of M. Clement Vacher with the  most successful results as is witnessed  by the heavy shipments of high grade  ore already made, the large amount of  sorted ore now awaiting shipment and  the still larger quantity of second and  third class ore awaiting either a system  of concentration or cheaper transportation.    An investigation of the workings under the. guidance of M. Vacher  is quite a treat to anyone interested in  our mining industry, and though  it is  not the object nor is it within the power  of the writer to-11 lake a technical  report, but simply to give the impression  of a layman, it is impossible not to be  struck with the intelligence with which  this somewhat faulted vein has  been  followed and  recovered,  or with  the  enthusiasm  of   the man  pointing to  every changed condition in the line of  break or formation with a knowledge  of and with a love for his work which  makes for success and that success has  crowned his efforts must be. satisfactory, not only to himself but to his  company, who have had to contend  with    many    difficulties,     inefficient  transportation not being the least.  A lovely morning and a good road  made the five mile walk from Beaverdell to Carmi something to be remembered with pleasure, though the appearance of the little town with its  deserted houses was most depressing.  Passing through this burgh of disappointed hopes and climbing the hill,  the Carmi mine and mill are reached  and a hearty welcome from Mr. Long-  ley, the superintendent, 'who was  busily engaged unwatering the mine  for examination by Mr. Roy Clark, a  mining expert from Spokane, on behalf of a syndicate for the purchase of  the property. Rumor has it that there  is every probability, of the property  changing hands, when work will be  An Ottawa despatch to the coast  dailies regarding the Nicola and Spence's Bridge railwav project, makes an  interesting companion picture to  Drinkwater's message poured into the  sympathetic ear of the Nelson daily  News.   The despatch says :  "Ottawa, May 18.���������(special.)���������Mr.  Loss acquired the Ivaniloops, Nicola  and Siinilkameen charter lioni Begy  and his St. Catherines associates and  has entered into an agreement with  the Canadian Pacific to build 45 miles  of road to Nicola Lake from Spence's  Bridge, should the Canadian Pacific  succeed^in defeating V. V. <fc R. legislation.  "The company has no intention of  building this year, but will renew its  application, next session to the Provincial government for a cash subsidy of  five thousand dollars a mile. Tn the  meantime, to keep up appearances of  bona .fide construction, the announcement- is made that the work is to be  started at once. 'Should the V.Y.A E.  legislation pass, the work will be vigorously prosecuted in the race with?  the Great Northern to reach Siinilkameen, but the (J. P. R. is extremely  anxious to defeat the X. V. & K. legislation, and then it. wonldnol be forced  to build and would be in a position to  renew the demand for a provincial  subsidy next season."  With regard to the above it 111.1v be  said that the statement, that the proposals of the AW. iV E. have anything  to do with the company's decision to  build from Spence's Bridge is vigorously denied at the local (!. P.R. offices.  It is asserted that the contract with  Mr. Loss was signed a-. long ago as last  March and that that gentleman will  be on the ground shortly, his chief of  construction being, in fact, now on  his way west.  Horse' Racing, Bucking Horse Contest,,  - Athletic Sports, Etc.���������The List of  , Prizes.  making   their  Farewell Social.  Concluded on Pngc .Four.  The   Twentieth   Century   Club,   to  mark their appreciation of the services  of Rev. C. E. Docksteaderas librarian,  took the initiative  in getting up  the  social held on  Monday  night,   to do  honor to him and Mrs. Dock->teader on  the eve of their departure for Vancouver Island.     Jn  this the   (Jlub were  joined   by   the   congregation   of   the  Methodist Church,   who,.' in waiving  their .right to the function and allowing 'it to  take ah.'undenominational  form,  paid   him   the  highest  tribute.  The large company which gathered at  , the church on  Monday evening,   was  evidence of how thoroughly the Club  and.the townspeople appreciated Mr.  Docksteader's unceasing efforts on behalf of the Club in keeping the reading  room open every evening.    The building was more than  comfortably filled,  and games of caroms, crokinole, chess,  checkers etc., were kept going briskly  during the evening, while a guessing  contest was also in progress, requiring  the interpretation of sundry proverbs  presented in pictorial form.   The winner of the contest was Miss Alice McLean,   and   two   booby   prizes were  awarded to G. Finnegan and the cd-  Tir  For the first time in the six years  that Kereineos has held a celebration  wo have to chronicle a wet day for our  sports. As the weather had been unsettled for some days prior to the 24th,  no doubt many who usually attend,'  were prevented from  annual pilgrimage.  That the sports were of a high order  was evidenced by the fact that the  .crowd who were present stayed out  all day in the rain to witness them.  Some interesting events were brought'  off; amongst which we may mention  the struggle between II. Richter's Sir  Ilcnry and C. Allison's sorrel mare.  The pony race brought out a good  field and was won, after an exciting  finish, by D. Innis' Bessie, II. Richter's  Ginty being second.  'Friendship ceased amongst the  juniors' immediately the schoolboys'  race was called. This was won by  Sammy Manery. with Tonunie Daly  and young Nehumption close up. The  local favorite for this race. Walter  Palmer's pinto, was evidently over  trained, and did not get a place.  The excitement of the day reached  its zenith with the bucking contest for  a prize giA-cn by G. A. Henderson of  Vernon. Honors in Lhis event wen*  shared by IT. Brewer, and an Indian  boy. R. Khnhur-it and Paul Broail-  hagen officiated as judges, S. McCurdy  as starter, and \V. Lowe filled his  usual position as clerk of the course.  The day was brought to .1 close with  a very pleasant dance in the school  house.  Following is the list of winners.:  Footrace, 100 yards. J. Richter 1st.  Naracese 2nd.  iace.    Craig   and   H.

He  had fully settled that "a bird in the  hand was Avo'rth two in the bush," and  was preparing to wade into "the pig  in a poke," when the paper was taken  away. The latter didn't put in a. paper  at all and blames Myrtle McLean for  putting up a job on him.'  Mr. H. D. Barnes, president of the  Twentieth Century Club, called the  meeting to order and requested Mr.  Haitlwick to make the address to Mr.  and Mrs. Docksteader, who were presented with a purse containing $60 in  gold. Mr. Hardwick, in presenting  the token of good Avill, voiced the sentiments of the meeting in expressing  the appreciation which the members  of the club, the congregation and the  townspeople generally felt for Mr. and  Mrs. Docksteader.

Encouraged by the  ' good lord  good devil" style of  treatment of the subject by the  Nelson News, Drinkwater in a  irery  kriow-it-all   sort of way.  wires that paper that the people  )������ British Columbia are deluding themselves in thinking Hill  ntends to build the portion  of  jhe V.

Children were  there  whose rude boisterous behavior  drove some of the adults from  the hall.   Putting off fire-crackers, turning out the  lights and  leaving the company in  darkness, not once but half a,  dozen  times or more,   romping about  and shouting, would not be tolerated in a half properly  conducted juvenile party: and how  parents could allow their children out alone or  look on  complacently without remonstrance  or attempt of any kind to exercise  some restraint,  is  wholly  inexplicable. It is not a pleasant  thing to have to  refer to,  and  neither is it in the  interests  of  either the town or the children  themselves to allow the affair  to pass unnoticed.   If some parents will mistake  unreasonable  indulgence -for kindness,  they  should know-that while this is  their own affair so far as their  own homes are concerned, it becomes quite a different thing in  public, where the comfort and  enjoyment of others are to be  considered.

If the Lands and  Works  department were to pave the roads  with silver those who want to  kick would kick that it wasn't  gold.   It has not been the custom in B. C. for many years to  begin the expenditure of money  on the roads until after the end  of the fiscal year, June 30th, so  that   the   amount   of   -money  available would be known,  regardless of the appropriations  made.    To   this   some   notable  exceptions have at times been  made,   and   as it happens  the  Similkameen  riding is   at   the  present time being made an exception, for men tire ut work in  the Similkameen  riding today  on new work, which is  perhaps  the only new work being done  in the province at the  present  time.   The Bear Creek road  is  in course of construction at the  extreme northwestern portion  of the riding, and it is from the  extreme western portion of the  riding that the kicking is being  done,   if   fault-finding   in    the  Star can be called kicking from  that  portion    of    the   riding.  Neither is it true that any promises were made to build a road  on   Five-Mile  creek.   The fact  remains that the Similkameen  riding is faring better than any  other riding in   the   province,  and the portion of it that is receiving the most attention   is  that in the vicinity of Princeton.    This fact is appreciated  by electors in that vicinity.  Certificate of Improvements.  KDWAHD VII mineral claim, situate in Greenwood mining division of Yale district.
