Walker,  of Toronto is Making-  Investigations for Dominion  Government.,  THE WESTERN CROPS  Nelson, July 18th���������William Walker,  professor* of nulling in Toronto university, arrived in Nelson last week in tlie  course of a tour of the mineral regions  of Canada on behalf of the Dominion  government, to report upon the mineral, molybdenite. Two years ago  Prof. Walker made a similar tour, as  a result of which he wrote for the government a brochure upon the mineral  tungsten.  Prof. Walker held a. long conference  with local assayers in Nelson, examining records of thi'ir assays of the molybdenite deposits around Salino. Prof.  Walker placed a value on the ore  which assayed as 9-1 per cent, pure, of  $425 a. ton. The ore in this district is a  sulphide of molybdenum, and at both  Salmo and Granite it occurs in separate  belts from the ores of the other metals.  Prof. Walker later went to Rossland  where he inspected the deposits of  molybdenite in the Giant mine. He  will inspect the Crow's Nest Pass district. The well-known savant has already been over the Texada island  and Siniilkaineen deposits.  The use.to which molybdenite'is put  is for armor platings for battleships,  and its adoption for that purpose has  made it extremely valuable.  Conditions in Manitoba,  Saskatchewan  and Alberta  WHEN SHOOTING  SEASON BEGINS  A Concise  Summary of  Points  in the  Game Laws to be Observed  ,'..'-���������        . ���������-.  ' . ' ��������� ci-  Constable Black, of Nelson, has  made a brief but complete summary  of latest restrictions in the game laws,  a thing that was badly needed, and as  there is practically no difference, between the Nelson district and this por-  tson of Yale-Cari boo, we reprod uce i t  herewith; attention is therefore drawn  to the following regulations for game  protection which become pertinent at  this season:  "Blue and willow grouse and ptarmigan may be shot in this portion of the  province between Sept. 1 and Dec. 1,  inclusive.  "Prairie chicken may bo shot during  October.  "Duck, geese and snipe may be shot  on the entire mainland between Sept.  1 and February 28, inclusive.  "Pheasant shooting is not allowed  in this part of the province.  "Quail may not be shot at all in this  part of the province.  "Columbian or Coast deer may be  shot in this part of the province between Sept. 1 and Dec. 15 inclusive.  "Wapiti may not bo shot in the  province.  "Coast deer may not be sold in this  part of the province, while ducks,  geese and snipe may be sold here during October and November* only.  The Winnipeg Free Press, gave out  the following estimate from data collected before the rains of July 10and  17. If those rains were as heavy or as  general as they were reported, the  situation may not be as bad as it was  thought to be.   The Free Press said:  "It is evident that Maniboba, and  more especially Southern Manitoba-,  has suffered severely, and taken as it  whole that section will not produce  more than half a crop. Judging by  the number of reports that run from  eight to ten bushels for wheat it would  be safe to place the yield of that section of the province at eight bushels  as an average. This roughly includes  the. country lying south of the main  line of the C. P. R. Southern Manitoba can, of course, better afford such  a loss than any other section of the  West, as there has been no general  failure there since 1888.  ���������'Southern Saskatchewan has suffered less than was expected, but Southern Alberta may be counted jis almost  total loss. Northern-' and Central  Saskatchewan have one of the finest  crops in their history. That province  has the largest area in wheat and the  largest percentage of that area is in  the central and northern parts of the  province, Northern Alberta, speaking  generally, has a srood crop.  "Judging from these reports, with  anything like favorable weather from  now on, it would be safe to count on  at least 90,000,000 to 95,000,000 bushels  of wheat. The oat crop will be light  arid the bailey crop generallj' unsatisfactory, but speaking broadly, the flax,  crop is a success in the districts where  the largest areas have been sown.  "The West will not harvest a bumper crop this year, but she will have  eno-.rgh for* bread and seed, with a fair  amount for export. The quality will  be high. It is interesting to note in  how many reports stress is laid on the  fact that where careful farming has-  been done the crop is good in spite of  the light rainfalls.  KALEDEN MAKES   FIRST   TRIP  B. C. FRUIT AT WINNIPEG  New   Era    For! The   Okanagan   and  Okanagan Falls Marked Thereby  Yesterday was a red letter day for  the Lower Okanagan and Okanagan  Falls.  The occasion was tho initial trip of  the new 0. P. R. steamer Kaleden  which has recently been built at Okanagan Landing to run the Okanagan  river and Dog Lake or Lake Skaha, in  milking regular trips between Penticton and Okanagan Falls.  Sixty passengers were on board for  the initial tripandeveryonehadagood  time, realizing the importance of the  event which is to cut out so many  miles of weary staging and offers one  one of the most delightful inland trips  to he found anywhere in  the district.

July 23rd.���������Not only will  Earl Grey be the first Governor-General of Canada to make the rugged  overland trip across the country to  Hudson Bay, but if the plans which  are now being made at the mounted  police department do not miscarry, he  will probably achieve the distinction  of muking the trip in record time.  Earl Grey will leave hero on August 3  and is timed to arrive in Fort Churchill  on August 15. The entire distance to  be covered is about 2,240 miles, of  which about 600 miles will be made by  canoe and portage, the first stretch of  1,640 miles being covered by mil,  Victoria, July 21���������A special prelim-;  iary report has, just been- received at  the provincial department of agriculture from Mr. Bullock-Webster, in  charge of the British Columbia government's exhibit, chiefly of fruits,  timber and fish of this province, at the  Winnipeg exhibition, which opened  on Wednesday last. The fruit display  from this province which is of course  being featured is a composite collection  from some thirty growers, thoroughly  representative of all sections of the  province.     It reached   the  Manitoba  capital, Mr. Webster reports, in oxcel  lent condition, and is attracting much'  attention,  being repeatedly  declared ���������  .by visitors,  who crowd  the stall   constantly, to  he the superlatively  good  exhibit of the show.    The federal premier. Sir- Wilfrid Laurier, was among  the recent visitors and spoke in terms  of high appreciation both of the fruit  and its staging as an exhibit,  also ac- ���������  cepting samples.  HEAT  INTENSE  At the time of Mr. Bullock-Webster's  writing the heat at Winnipeg was intense.

Salmonbellies Win Second of Series with  Decisive Victory  The second match between the  Westminsters and Mon trails for the  Minto cup lacrosse trophy was played  off on Saturday last at New Westminster and resulted in a most decisive victory for the cupholders by a  score of 15 goals to 5. In the two  matches the scores stood 25 goals to 9  in favor of West-minster.  Late reports from the Midway coal  mine state that the seam has widened  out to over seven feet, and is of good  quality.

It was in  that capacity   the folly of the various  churches  in  running    opposition    shows     was  Ill-ought homo  to him   as.it has been  to all of us who  have had  an oppor-  tnity of seeing here  on   the frontier  the working out- of a system founded  too largely on the absurdity  of  maintaining sectarian shibboleths  regardless of the cost  in waste of men  and  substance.    Dr. Sutherland was from  the very inception of the union movement to be found in the forefront, and  it is generally conceded  that the basis  of union   drawn up and agreed to  by  the various members of the committee appointed from the various bodies  for that purpose was largely his work.  That it was on broad lines and  eminently just and liberal    is evident  to  any   one  who  will bring a fair and  open mind to its perusal.     What plan  the  various  churches will   adopt   in  dealing with it we do not know,   but  we understand that with   the  presbyter-inns it will  first come  before  the  synods, then the presbyteries  and finally to. the congregations for* a popular  vote.    Back in   the east   where  they  have   little  opportunity   of   knowing  the extent  to  which  sectarianism   is  hampering mission  work   it  may  he  possible that some congregations    in-  fiueiiccil by blind  sectarian   prejudice  may vote  it down    but  here   in   the  west  we. are  very  much   mistaken  if  union   does not receive an overwhelmingly favorable vote from the congregations.  brigade--ciiitip-s, an. 1 particularly so  with the cavalry and artillery, but  tho one weak spot upon which he  placed his 'finger was- the. staff, which j  he pronounced "ignorant of the first |  principles of strategical distribution  of the forces." Whether ho intended bis criticism to include the imperial army officer at present in command  of the Canadian forces, is not known  but it-is presumed that he did, for if  that officer is qualified to see to the  matter of strategical distribution it  would also be, up to him to see that  his stuff were not lacking in such  knowledge. It is fortunate indeed  that the makers of the Dominion did  their* work as well as they did wheri  the British North America Act was  framed and the command of the forces  was placed in Downing Street. Had  those old fr-irners ef the Act been able  to see ahead and known the extent to  which the force could become deteriorated as the result of political favoritism they would have been more explicit and placed certain restrictions  upon the administration in its control  of military expenditures and military  appointments The time is ripe for a  broad comprehensive scheme f������1' '������������������'(���������-  organization of the entire military  forces of the empire, and the time to  do it is now when there is available  a man like Kitchener to undertake it.  General French's report came in the  very nick of time and when read iii  connection with ii aval expert Mahan's  criticisms of the British and Colonial  naval units and their relation to each  other, should show every patriotic  Canadian who has the interest and integrity of the empire at Heart, the necessity of giving" capable men a free  hand to evolve and perfect a proper-  working scheme to secure absolute  unity of action and 'complete cohesion  thai will enable a united front to be  presented to airy foe which may assail  the empire at any point.

The diminution in the water-supply  of Twenty-mile had become so marked  before the heavy rain of Thursday  that it was found advisable to turn on  the steam on tlie big compressor*, but  the ruin made so great an improvement that it was found the Hume  could still give the' necessary.amount  of power and the steam connections  were taken off again.

Constable Nigel Ewart of Princeton  was in town over Sunday.  '���������Church of England service will be  held here on Sunday next, 21st inst.,  by Rev. ,).,A.

Brother Wright of the Similkameen  Star claims that the stork has been  .making his roost iri Princeton lately.  That probably, explains his-frequent  ..flights' into the lower valley during  the last few weeks. On his last visit,  Saturday 23rd inst., he left n fine baby  boy at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.  George Tickle.  Mrs. Gillespie, Mrs. McEwen and  Miss Suiitherarn, of Hedley, visited  friends in this district over Sunday.  Dr. McEwen was called here on Saturday and expected to remain over Sunday  but an  urgent call  necessitated  An item, of which we had no knowledge, appeared in the Keremeos news  last week stating that the Eastern  Townships Bank was opening a branch  office at Penticton. This is not correct. Mr. L.-iwson, manager of the  Keremeos hank was in Penticton last  week buthe 'states that the E. T. is  not opening a branch there. With  three already in the field there does  not appear to be any shortage.  (A careful examination of last week's  notes failed to show the presence of  the item referred to. A "two-liner"  to the effect that the Bank of Hamilton was opening up in Penticton,  managed inadvertently to fiiid its way  I into the column through the exigencies  I of the make-up, but beyond that the  luckless typos are apparently innocent  this time.���������Ed.)  Prospects for a better sample of  apples were never better in the Siniilkaineen than they are this year arid it  is pleasing to note that owners of bearing orchards hens are taking a good  deal of interest in the national apple  show to be held in Vancouver this fall  and doing what they can towards securing an exhibit which will be worthy  of the valley. The generous offer of  Mr. W. H.

Armstrong made a trip through  the boundary country last week with  a view to securing a market for Keremeos fruit. He returned home on  Saturday and reported having been  entirely successful. Grand Forks and  Phoenix have contracted to take all  the peaches we have to spare and later  on arrangements will be made for  shipping tomatoes and other fruits.  The dago, who sustained the murderous assault with a razor in the  hands of a .countryman at' Princeton  some time ago passed through here on  Friday on his way to Kamloops to attend the trial of and give evidence  against his assailant. Except for the  livid scar around his neck he appeared  none the worse for his horrible experience.  G. E. Emery arrived in Keremeos  on Monday to relieve L. A. King, G.  N. agent, who leaves this week for  Hillyard where he has been fortunate  in securing a position as cashier for  the company and where he will be  able to enjoy the society of his family  from whom he has been separated  since he came to Keremeos. We regret the departure of our old friend  and shall miss his happy humor but  we wish him chunks of success in his  new home and may he find his environment to his entire satisfaction.  W. J. Stover has disposed of his  property the east part of lot 29, to  Geo. B. Clarke, He finds the work a  little too strenuous for a man of over  three score years and ten and, incidentally, has grown tired of "baching."  He will return to his old home and  friends in "Wyoming, and we trust  that among) the old associates he will  find life more congenial. The lot which  'he has sold to Mr. Clark will doubtless  prove a money-maker during the coining years. The trees are in fine condi:  turn and the majority loaded with as  fine fruit as we have seen-their first  crop of any account.  Mr*.   W. M. Frith,  collector of customs,  for Keremeos, has received  the  pleasing information that his request  for an assistant has been granted and  that Mr.   Grigor, of Rossland, will arrive shortly  and assist him,   pending  future arrangements.    I**ver since preparations for  track-laying  above this  place  commenced,  a year and a  half  ago, customs" work at this outport has  been  very heavy and  it was only liy  working long  hours  that   Mr.  Frith  could get through what was recprrrttl  of him.     The extension of the steel to  Hedley and  Princeton has  materially  increased the importations from across  the line.    Figures show   that during  the last year*  and a half the   duty collected at this outport- more  than exceeds the total amount collected by all  the other outports under  the port of  'Greenwood  combined.     This includes  Osoyoos, Bridesville.   Myncaster, Midway and Greenwood.  SUBSCRIBE FOR THE GAZETTE  samples possible. An exhibition of this  kind, supplemented by our board of  trade with advertising matter of  which we have a generous supply, will  be a most effective advertisement to  the valley. That the management of  the apple show fully appreciate the  splendid otter* rnade by Mr. Armstrong  (of which they first learned through  the Keremeos items to the Hedley  Gazette) is evidenced by an article in  the Vancouver World of the loth inst.  and by a warm note of appreciation  from the secretary.

The ancient Peruvians must have  understood something of the laws of  atmospheric pressure, else how .could  they have constructed some of tlie  very curious jars and vases they left  behind them? One of tlie.se pieco.--  of pottery was ornamented with the  figures ol! two monkeys, and \vh:-i  water was poured into or out of the  vessel sounds like the screeching <f  monkeys were heard. Another similar vessel had the figure of a bii*-'..  which uttered appropriate notes:  another was ornamented with a c.-t  which mewed, and another wi'Y  snakes which hissed.

"1 can't tell."  she said, with dreamy satisfaction,  "how many times I have caught  people, especially women, snapshotting me recently."  "I shouldn't be so puffed up about  it if I were you," said the brute of  a man. "It- wasn't your good looks  that attracted them. They were taking pictures of your dresses, so they  could copy the best points in their  own clothes."

SIMILKAMEEN LAND DISTRICT  DlSTltlCT ov Yalk  Ancient High Buildings.  In the Rome of the Caesars trouble  was experienced with high buildings.  A law was passed restricting the  height of fronts to sixty feet. In  order to evade it builders adopted  the practice of carrying up the rear  portion several stories more. Other  laws bearing on the heights of buildings were passed in olden times.  There was a tendency to diminish  the height of stories as the buildings  increased in size, and a height of  130 feet was probably attained. ft  is believed that the ceilings were so  low that a man could not stand upright in the  rooms.  ���������"TAKE NOTICE, that I.
