V. & E. Plans from Tulameen to Hope  Summit Approved  Ci owdod out of last week  Mr.  J. H.Kennedy, chief .engineer  of the V. V. & E. Railway, an noun ceil  yesterday    that   the Great Northern  Railway had definitely abandoned the'  idea of building a line between Suinas  Landing   and   Hope,   paralleling  the  Canadian .'Northern line, but through  an   arrangement   with   Sir*   William  Mackenzie  will  use that line for* the  distance of thirty-eight  miles.     The  Great Northern will probably reciprocate by permitting the Canadian line  to rise  its tracks between Vancouver  and Port Kells, at least till the latter-  have   built their* line   between   Port  Mann and Port  Kells.     During his  month's  tour*  Mr.   Kennedy secured  the approval of "the board of Railway  Commissioners'tit Ottawa of the plans  of the V. V. & E. railway for41 miles  from Tulameen  to the source of the  Coquihalla River.   While at St. Paul  Mr.  Kennedy  was authorized to call  for tenders for   the  construction   of  nine wooden bridges on the  line between  Abbotsford and Sumas Landing, in the building of which some five  million feet of timber will be used.  The Province in referring to the  above adds:  "No instructions for the construction of the line from Tulameen to the  summit have yet been issued. The  work will be heavy. The impression  prevails that it will not be undertaken  until next year, as tire outfits of railway contractor* working have been  withdrawn from railhead at Tulameen."  PENTICTON AND BACK  Between Trains���������The  Round Trip May  Now Be Made In Less Thaii a Day  OFFICIALS FOUND GUILTY  President and Other Officers of United  Wireless Given Terms of  Imprisonment  The trial of officials of the United  Wireless Telegraph Co. which was  concluded last week resulted in the  conviction of President .0. C. Wilson,  director Geo. Parker and two other-  officials on four- counts. Wilson was  given three years and Parker and the  others two years each on the charge  of misuse of the mails.  This outcome of the affair leaves no  other* conclusion than that they were  determined to brazen out and deceive  the shareholders to the very last.  The wonder* is why the court should  stay the execution of the sentence  sufficiently long to enable thenr to appeal arrd of course give more bail. If  it was poorer* men they would go to  jail at once but because they have  money that the courts and the lawyers can get a pull at this farce of pretending to administer justice and  favor* the rich offender is allowed to  go on. -  That the horseless carriage has  brought,in a new era is amply demonstrated in the latest arrangement for  covering the distance between Keremeos and Penticton. Not long ago  the luxury of riding in a conveyance  of that kind.was supposed to be reserved for the man with a long purse,  but now it is open for* anyone who  may want to cross over the divide  from Keremeos to Penticton.  Si. M; Studebaker has established a  regular auto stage line which connects  those points and makes close connect  tion with all trains and boats. The  regular "mail stage runs only three  times per* week and as there is a daily  train up the Similkameen valley by  the Great Northern and a daily boa t  operated on Okanagan Lake by the  C: P. R. the inconvenietice of having  the link between them shortened up  to a tri-weekly stage service has been  severely felt by the travelling public;  but/with a: service wliich provides an  auto to meet the down train leaving  here in the afternoon and ; enabling  one to reach Penticton in about two  hours or* a little more from the time it  leaves Keremeos the wants.of the public are pretty well met. in this way-  one can leave Hedley at 3.30. p. in.,  reacli Penticton' about 7 giving time  to attend to any special business that  can lie done after* business hours or  attend'--any..; entertain merit or ,social  function in the evening, have ample  time/for a good night's rest and get  HILL AFTER MONEY  Great Northern Financing Their Line on  Wall Street  The financial columns of the coast  dailies at the end of last week tell of  operations on Wall Street in'which  flotations of the Hill interests was a  feature and the market kept strong in  their favor*. This would appear to indicate that they have'a good deal'of  construction in view. Whether- the  route from the Similkameen to the  coast will get any of it remains to be  seen but,it is pleasing to note that  Wall Street is in amiable,mood concerning the flotation and there is every  prospect of the road raising all the  cash-they may. require.  When work was at a .standstill before at this end of the line the president of the Great Northern threw the  .blame of the cessation on Wall Street  and from this data it is surely pardonable for:us to take some crumb of comfort from the present circumstance as  an antidote to the disquieting rumors  which have .been, going about to the  effect that we are in for another  twelve'months' hold-up.  SIMILKAMEEN ROADS  STRANGE  FREAKS OF POWDER  I'. (.1. HON IHifi  I'ancouver,  B. C.  fume, Temple & Tunbridge  Solicitors,  Notaries Public,  Conveyancers, Etc.  PENTICTON, British Columbia.  Proximity   is   Not  Only    Thing   That  Brings Danger  The freaks of high power explosives  may be seen from the accident referred to in last week's Gazette. Vinko  Williams was standing within seven  feet from where 00 lbs of dynamite  went off and the injuries sustained by  him only kept him in the hospital for  three or four days. The force from  those explosives is believed to go in  streaks, radiating from the point of  explosion and one man standing twice  the distance off might be blown to  pieces while a man standing nearer  the point of explosion who may be  lucky enough to tret- between two of  the force zones will be comparatively  unhurt except the injury to his hearing which is pretty certain in any  case. When Scotty Dornn and his  partner* were blown to pieces four*  years ago it is finite possible that neither of them was any nearer that explosion than Williams was in this case  and neither is it likely that the charge  was any heavier. The Vernon ihmv.s  tells of an accident where a. liuui working on tlie government road at Long  Lake was injured by a piece of rock  I'nmi a blast 50 vards distant.  time to catch the up train for Hedley  reaching here, before noon.  But the featur e of the arrangement  which means most to us here is the  fact that it offers a present alternative  route to the coast by which Vancouver* may be reached five hours earlier  than at present irr going by the Great  Northern with the stop-over at Oroville.     ,  The pleasure of the ride itself over  that mountain road by auto is a. drawing card and then when the conrf 1 >rt  of getting on the fine steamer at Penticton and getting a, cosy clean berth  with no anxiety of catching any train  in the morning as compared with that  patience-trying stop-over at Oroville  with its scurry in the early.morning  the comparison of the two routes will  scarcely hold. Ever since the G. N. E.  train service was established up the  valley the Great Northern have been  importuned in season and out of season to raise that odious Oroville embargo but without avail. Possibly  now they will take a tumble when  they see their passenger traffic leaving them and taking the more popular* route.-  A SPLENDID MOVE  Minister Ross Takes Effective Means to  Stop Fire Losses.  an . ar-  Frank  forest  , Toronto, May 26th.-- Under  rangement affected by Hon.

The owner  is apparently a born chauffeur, understanding everything about his car and  handling it with an ease and perfect  control which inspires confidence in  his passengers. The road passes  through country that at this season of  the year is a, panorama of loveliness  with the profusion of wildflowers  seen on all sides. Mr. Studebaker* has  another* new car on order which is expected to be on the route in about a  fortnight. Thu new car* is to be a big  00 h. p. touring car and will be driven  by Studebaker* himself while the present car will be run by an experienced  man who was formerly associated  with him in the running of machines.  province will be inaugurated upon the  lines established by Hon. Mr. Cochrane in Ontario.  ��������� Hon. Mr. Ross visited Toronto and  went closely into the details of the  Ontario system and secured copies of  the Ontario Forest Fire act regulations  for forest and fire rangers, equipment  arrd other data. On his return home  the British Columbia minister made  application to Ontario for a practical  superintendent to take charge of organization of the rrew fire ranging  service in the field. Hon. Mr. Cochrane has assigned W. H. McGregor of  Cache Bay, Manitoulin district to the  work and he is now commencing his  duties in the Pacific province. Mr.  McGregor is one of the best men in  the Ontario service. During his work  irr the Pacific province he will he paid  bv the McBride government.

S. L. Smith  Assignee.  A jolly party of Pentictonites who  were  out on  a King's Birthday jaunt  arrived in  Hedley on  Saburdiiy about  noon,  having come .over in two auto-sin a little over three hours time.   The  party consisted of W. T. Shatford of  the *S.   O.  Land  Co.,   Dr.   White.  J.  Kirkpatrick C. P. R. agent, W. Mason  of Mason & Kendall,  A.  H.  Stevens  manager of the Bank of Hamilton, C.  A. C.   Stewart,   F.   Williamson,  T. J.  Armstrong,   J.  Kathbon   and   G.   L.  Gartrell of Suinnierland.     The autos  were owned  and driven   by   Messrs.  Rathbon   and   Gartrell.   respectively.  The party had luncheon at the Siniilkaineen  and  afterwards by  the courtesy  of Mr.  ('.P.  Jones  they had a  trip up  to the mine and through  the  mill which  was a new experience for  most of them and one that they heartily enjoyed,  especially the ride up the  tramway.     Mr,   Mason   was the only  golfer  in the  party but the time was  too short  to pei mit of a round of the  Hedley   links  as   they   wanted   to get  through to  Princeton the same evening.    Speaking   of the golf it  is a notable and significant fact that the only  golfer  in tlie  party was  the most devout of all,   which is ample refutation  of 1 he all ton prevalent idea, that golf  ing   is   conducive   to   profanity.     At  all events when going up the tramway  the editor who accompanied the party  up  to   the   inin<*   tried to point out to  Mr. Mason the beauties of the links of  which so  fine u view is obtained from  the tramway, but   was assured by Mr.  Mason    that   his   thoughts   were   too  strongly   focussed   on   heaven   about  that time to think of any golf links.  Those of us who stay at home have  little idea of the progress that is going  on in other parts of the district and  notably in our own riding of Similku-  ineen.  A few years ago when -most of the  travel was done on horseback the  editor of the Gazette had most <->f the  roads in the electoral district off by  heart, but now when trains and autos  are the proper caper and people can  get about with ease, speed and comfort, we stay at home and know nothing of what is all the while going on  in quarters that were formerly so '  familiar.  The thing that attracts the attention perhaps more than anything else  is the wonderful improvement in the  public roads which the past few years  has brought about. Crooks and  humps... are . disappearing and new-  pieces of roadway taking their* place  that are almost suitable for It, public  park.  Between  Keremeos and   Princeton  there has been a most marked   betterment in  the condition  of the' public  highway  and the work now going on  is being done in a manner which must  meet the approval  of every .one  who  can take a pride in good loads.     First  in point  of importance   is   the   new  road down  Beaver Creek which  cuts  out the sand-hills    and   besides   cutting out the climb and shortening the  distance  it  has given    a   permanent  roadway upon   which   every   dollar  that is expended   will  be  that much  more of a public asset for the province.  The roadbed is in places  a.-little, rough  as yet on portions that have, not  received attention this spring but this is  always to be expected in  the c.-ise  of  new roads that have yet  to come  in  for the seasoning process.     Mr. L. A.  Clarke was the road boss   in charge of  the construction of this portion  and  he has certainly done his  work  well.  It is a most romantic  piece of roadway too in its more or less  winding  course (but even grade) down the valley   and over  its half score  bridges  with the creek    like a   mountain   torrent  roaring  beneath them    at this  season of the year.  Then there is the work in progress  up Keremeos Creek that is being done  by Danny McE.-icherri's gang of men.  Here is to be seen some scientific  road-making done after the style of  "good roads'" 'models with crown  beautifully rounded in a manner that  should make a chauffeur's teeth water.  . If the roads in the eastern portion  of the riding are getting as good value  from the money expended the representative and district supervisor of  roads are indeed to be congratulated  on the part which each has played in  bringing about so desirable a change  in the roads of the district.  SENT UP FOR TRIAL  The man who entered Nissen's house  and took   his watch came up for hearing and the evidence  being conclusive  he was sent up to the-   tender mercies  of a   Vernon jury.     The  man's  name  was  given  as    Frank   Curtis and   he  didn't look to  be a  particularly  bad  man   but seemed   to have a   weakness  for watches.  The watch found on him  was positively identified by Nissen tbe  owner and by James Clark the jeweler  who  had repaired   it on  several occasions and  had the  numbers.     Before  man    was   arrested   the   numbers   of  both the works and the case were given constable  Spi-otile  and the\ tallied  exactly    with    the   numbers    on   the  watch in the prisoner's possession and  also with   the numbers  in Mr. Clark's  book.    Had  the  prisoner  been smart  enough  after-hearing  the evidence to  invent a   story which would jibe in he  might be all right with a 'Vernon jury  but the yarn he fold in   hi.- statement  was to the   effect that   he had  got the  watch on a trade   from a man over on  Kettle  river over   two   months   ago.  Had   he  only   had the  savvy to   have  said that he got the   watch from some  Si wash   the same  evening  -i.-   it   was  taken   from   Nissen's   house  he would  have had   as good a case   logo   before  the Vernon  jury as the one  on which  they   acquitted    Nahuiushan.    for   it  would then   have been   up to   Die constables  to produce   the imaginary   Si-  wash   and put   him in the stand or no-  conviction   could follow.     Meamwhile-  it  is   well   for  everybody   to   make  a  memo of the number on his watch. rHE HEDLEY GAZETTE, JUNE S, 1011.  ��������� 'W: x r '.':        ������-- - "il S"> * '-'- ,������i-       1*Sl' "W) J"������M v> W  and  SimUkameeri Advertiser.  ���������died mi Thursdays, by the IIkiu.kv IJA/.KT'rr.  ri.-I.S-l'INO AND I'l-llLISIIIN-i; ('UMI'ANV.

The cessation of hostilities in  Mexico gives occasion to the Oroville  Gazette for the following apropos and  sensible remarks as to the attitude of  the anarchists and socialists:  "How the editors of the anarchistic  press, who foamed and frothed over  the presence of American troops at  tlie south, who were opposed to free  government,- the flag, law   and order,:  ftP  "AT IT HERE Sin.CE 1900V  **  y;  i������54SER t*  CO. 17*0*  RECIPROCITY AND  PEACH GROWING  -The    reciprocity    question    strikes  different   people   in   different    ways.  Some,   regard  it altogether from  the  sentimental  side and being convinced,  m   their own   mind  that  it will   boa,  stumbling block in   the. path of imperial unity  if not a direct step towards  annexation with the United States oppose it on those grounds.    Others who  are more concerned   with the business  end of it- but   have nothing more than  the general impression that the change  which it would   bring about would be  bad for Canada are  disposed to give it  the cold shoulder,   but there are still,  others  who   are not satisfied   merely,  the general   impression   as  to the ill  effect   it will   have   upon    the   business interests of Canada and are looking  up absolute data,  upon  which to  base    their, judgement.      The   other  evening the editor  of the -Gazette met  one of the last mentioned class in Penticton   in   the   person   of   Mr.   W.   T.  Shatford  whose keen  business mind  has led him to go   thoroughly into the  question..    We  do   not wish   it to   be  inferred,  however, that Mr. Shatford  is less  actuated  on patriotic   grounds  than   those,  who are disposed to give  that as their main reason for opposing,  but on   this  occasion   he   only  'dealt  with  the business  aspect of the question and whatever objections he. may  have on   patriotic  grounds were  kept  in   the   background.     AVhntever  line  .Mr.   Shatford   engages   in has  his full  attention  and as   fruit-growing is the  industry which has   taken the greater*  part of his attention   for several years  past  he has   taken   the  trouble  to inform   himself  thoroughly on all matters  effecting the industry and knows  to a, cent how   much   the  Canadian  tariff  on fruit is   worth to the British  Columbia, fruitgrower  and particularly the  fruit-grower of the Okanagan.  Mr.   Shatford  has  gone through   the  AVenatchee,   Hood River and Yakima  valley   fruit districts as  well as those  of noted districts in   California and he  knows  how  much   per   box   it costs  them to grow and   market their output.    Peach growing in  particular, he  says will be  dealt a most serious blow  if the agreement for reciprocity should  go into force.    So  much so is he convinced of the disastrous effects which  would   result   that with   reciprocity  hanging like a'dark cloud over the in-  .predicting that the army was to be  used to invade a! neighboring country  and crush the l-evolution, can now explain themselves is difficult to figure  out. 'However, .as the .truth is not in  them, and their one aim is to sow the  seeds ofc distrust, advocate monocracy  and spread hate, malice and nircharit-  ableness, their disappointment in the  failure of the military to com in it some  error will be covered up in more abuse  ol those Who believe in the American  form" of 'government as represented by  the constitution aiid insist that every  man is amenable to the law whether  he is republican, democrat, socialist,  capitalist or- laborer, rich or poor,  high or low, Jew or Gentile, Christian  or pagan.

("orsulowsky, of Princeton, iwin-  ager of the Siuiilkanicen brewery was  in town on Monday calling, on his  custoniers.  The dip in temperature which came  along on Friday last got here exactly  in the nick of time and checked the incipient stage of a good big flood.  The Stuniiierland Review has changed its form and enlarged to a six-column, 0 page paper, all home" print,  making it one of the husky papers of  the district.  .1. A. Schubert was down from Tulameen the beginning of the .week, and  is- removing someof his goods to iTu'la-  nreen, some of the departments in his  store here,being over-stocked.

Aleck Bloomfield Of Westbridge has  been buying a band of mules.

Three  others are yet to play;   .  Some good large trout have been  captured in Twenty-mile during the  past week. They were all caught below the dam and have apparently,  ���������conic-" up the stream. E.H. * Williams  ��������� has been one of the most successful of  the anglers. .  The entrance candidates who wrote  here last- week have no particular apprehensions as to the result of the  examinations nor complaint to make  of the paners except the drawing  paper which some of, them say was a  little stiffer than they were looking  " for.  The removal from Oroville. by the  Great Northern of a quantity of cedar  piiinp*. which'was intended for construction work on the road down the  Okanagan river* is taken by ��������� many as  an indication that no tracklayrng on  the new road need be looked for in  1011.  A passenger carr leave Vernon on  Tuesday forenoon and be in Hedley  Wednesday before noon, -during the  trip irr less than an hour over the 2-1  hours, but a- letter leaving Verncin by  the same train will not reach Hedley  until Friday forenoon, thus taking 72  hours or three times as long. There is  surelv some room for-improvement on  that.  Foreman Harry Rose has the new  road Hearing completion. Tho fills  are all connected up so that there is  continuous roadway all the distance  and nothing remains but to complete  the upper end of the cut, using the  dirt to widen the grades. The gang  has not been large as a larger force  could not be worked to advantage and  at this season of the year the need for  completion was not sufficiently pressing to war-rant adopting a course  which would add to the cost.  Mrs. J. A. Brown is giving her concert in Princeton to-morrow (Friday)  evening with every prospect of a pronounced success. .The. Princeton hospital is to receive the benefit of this  performance and the music loving  people of Princeton, in addition to  helping out a deserving institution in  their own town will have the privilege  of listening to a. treat. The program  will.be much the same as in,Hedley  with a few slight changes in the numbers selected. On June 22nd the evening of Coronation day the concert will  -also be repeated in Keremeos in aid of  some local institution there.  the verdict of-the. tuner'concerning  it would go to sliiiw thai it hud been  but an indifferent bargain. There is  Happily now every prospect fiom the  lunds already in hand that a very  good instrument can be procured.  Jim 3Ic"Vulty came in on Wednesday of last week from Republic where  he has been working since August  last. There is quite a Hedlev, contingent in Republic of whom he brings  cheery tidings. Among them is Yorky  who apparently is still Yorky wil-  though the reports that had reached  Hedley concerning hiin have,evidently been very much exaggerated. Jim  has been working steadily ��������� since he  left .here last year , but he got lonesome for* the Similkameen and came  back to look after his interests on ohis  side of the line. ���������- '  The IwV. on account,of engineering  difficulties had intended to take their  line a, consider;!tile distance' south of  Summerland. This aroused the*ire of  the -Summerland Board.of Tr,ade and  they asked for a reconsideration, wherr  at a meeting with J. .1. Warren, president of the K.'V. it was!.-stated the  bridging of the Trout Creek canyon  would cost a quarter of a million.and  the,road would be fiveimiles longer.  Meanwhile the board claim that they  carr show-the engineers an easy and  practical route that will bring the railway through Summerland and took  the engineer-over it. The president  has had a survey'made and promised  that if the -route is -found to be feasible the road will go that way.  In addition to catching the man who  gotNissen's watch constable Spro.ule  has. apparently landed the one who  broke into Shelder's house. The hitter's name is Goodison and he was  gathered in in Penticton. It was-his  intention to leave Curtis in Penticton  and bring Goodison back for hearing  and in case of the evidence being sufficient to send him up for ti ial he could  save .some money; to the  DLEY  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

Mr. .Shaw has been ex-1  pected  inhere to do .some work for-a  long time but owing to illness and the  misfortune of spraining his ankle his  arrival has been delayed.  E. Burr, of Hedley, passed down the  valley on Sunday on his way to Richter Mountain where he owns some  land which he is having surveyed by  ���������Mr. Gregory of Princeton. Mr. Burr  has located quite a number of settlers  on Richter 'Mountain during the past  year and now there is quite a settlement there.  J. B.

Saunders in Keremeos, The sale  will be held on Friday next, !Uh inst.  The. sale of the Princeton property  will be held at Princeton on Thursday  Sth.  George Kirby states that he has  grown weary of the "waiting" game  as played in Keremeos and this particular portion of the Siniilkaineen, and  is making preparations to get-out and  see if he cannot stir things up a bit.  He expects to leave this week for the  outside to see if he cannot spear a few  of the many investors who are alleged  to be invading this province. His first-  trip will be up the Okanagan.  . Census enumerator Harrison is getting along nicely with his work and  expects to complete his task in about  three week's time. The operation is  not as disagreeable a one as the press  would lead out- to think; in fact it is  quite painless. The only thing that is  bothering the enumerator is how he is  going to get all the particulars required when he strikes Chinatown and the  section camps.  The suit of McDonald vs. Surprise,  which has been long pending will be  argued at Greenwood this week before  His Honor Judge Brown. The suit is  the result of an attempt on the part of  the defendant to avade an agreement  for the sale of land to the plaintiff and  will prove of interest to the general  public as showing whether an agreement of sale is, or is not, binding upon  the parties thereto. Several witnesses  from here will attend to give evidence.  The Ladies Aid of the Methodist  Church-will give a social evening in  the Town Hall on Friday evening  next, Hth inst. The occasion will be a  farewell to Rev. Mi*. Kinney, who is  leaving here, and ;i reception to the  new pastor. Rev. Mr. Muwhinnoy,  who is expected in by that time. Refreshments will be served and a pleasant time is anticipated. Everybody  welcome.  Tommy Sing, chief of the Keremeos  Chinamen, who by thrift and close attention to the business of market gardening lias been accumulating a fair  share of the coin of the realm during  the past few years claims that it will  be the poorhouse for- him this year.  Tommy's gardening operations have  been steadi y expanding until this  year* he must have close to 20 acres  undiT cultivation, principally potatoes,  winch are generally conceded the --af-  est money' makers.
