P.," and I. L.  Deardorjff, supervisor of roads, paid a  visit to Keremeos last Friday on their  way west. Mr. Shatford is making  his annual trip of examination over  the roads of his large constituency,  learning the condition-.and'needs of  the various sections���������one of the most  important duties of his position, and  one to which he devotes a good deal of  time and study.  The supervisor, Mr. Deardorff, has  more of his attention than usual directed this year to the Similkameen',  the works projected for the summer  in this district heing of exceptional  extent. The appropruition for the Si-  niilkameen for 1908 is ahout $70,0*00,  most of it, of course, for roads and;  bridges, and.of that amount one-third  is to he expended in Keremeos'and vicinity. The largest items are for the  new public school and for'"the bridge  across the river. -  A few years ago the Similkameen  was the most notoriously neglected  part of the riding, and justly coin-  plnined of being shut out of a .fair  share of the public funds, much in the  same way that the province of B. C.  hae hecn unfairly treated by the Dominion. In so far as Air. Shatford has  been instrumental in bringing about a  more eqiiitablo state of affairs, he deserves the hearty thanks of his constituents.  The member and supervisor reached  Keremeos again on Wednesday on  their return trip down the valley, and  after a'short stay, continued on their  way to Oroville. While here he swelled the baseball club's fund for uniforms to the extent of a "V.  CONGRATULATIONS���������  WITH A DIFFERENCE.  Operations during the year in Fair-  view .were principally confined to the  Stemwinder mine, the. workings on the  lower and upper' Keremeos valley,  Camp Hedley, and the adjoining country ; and on Kruger mountain. I give  below a short account of the different  work done, kindly sent in by Mr. H.  Lee, of Fairview ; Mr. R. W. Northey,  of Olalla", and Mr. D. A. Carinichael,  of Fairview'.  Stemwinder.���������This mine is the property of The Stemwinder   Gold and  Coal Company." -During this year the  work progressed steadily,  and the result of development has justified the  anticipations of the management.    It  may be remembered that the company  operating this mine ran out of funds  after re-locating the ore:body on  the  -200vfoot level  under a fault that completely cut off all ore on the 200-foot  and 300-foot levels, then the lowest in  the mine'.   The management considered that the appearance of the ore below  the fault warranted  further expenditure, and a reorganization scheme was  very   successful   in;-, providing  ample  funds for additional exploration, which  has consisted of sinking a perpendicular shaft, 4i feet by 9 feet in the clear,  from the: surface close to the 46-stamp  mill  to  the 500-foot level.    The'new  shaft connects with the old workings  on the 200-foot level by a" cross-cut and  oil the 300-foot level intersects with  the former^ inclined shaft.    There are  three ledges.on the property, known as  the North, Main and South ledges, two  of which  only (the North and Main  ledges).have/'been worked heretofore.  On the 200-foot level a cross-cut from  the Main ledge was run 70 feet north  and opened up the North ledge there,  which is about -4 feet 6 inches wide.  On  the 300-foot level the Main ledge  was cut, showing 12 feet of clean, high-  grade ore.     On  the 400-foot level a  cross-cut was run'25 feet and opened  up the Main^ledge there, 12 feet wide  and of good average value;   this crosscut is now heing extended to open up  the North ledge.    On the 500-foob level  at the station,  the  new shaft ran into  the South ledge, a fine body of ore on  which sufficient work has not yet been  done to afford very definite  information.   It is over 0 feet wide aiid carries  good values on  the part opened.    A  cross-cut has been commenced on this  level to the Main ledge,  80 feet from  the station, and the North ledge about  66 feet farther.   All the ore opened up  is below thi.s fault,   is  in solid   ground  provement in mining conditions in the  Similkameen and Keremeos valleys.  The following are the operations in the  various camps duringthepast year:���������  , Rio it dan Mountain.  Billy Goat.���������The famous Billy  Goat claim is now Crown-granted and  no work was done on it this year, but  all the other claims on the mountain  received attention. On the west of  the Billy Goat, James Riordan did con-  j siderabie woi-k on the ledge of chalco-  pyrite he discovered' the year before  on the Resort claim. On the west it  is in contact with a granular-limestone  and on the east the formation is schist.  The strike is N. E. and S. W., with  nearly, verticaldip. It seems to paral-  lel^tbe ledge .on yie Billy Goat. The  capping is close to the suiface, being  covered by*only- three feet of soil, and  all the assays made so fair have given  pay values in gold, silver and copper.  Homestake.���������The Homestake adjoins the Billy Goat on tlie south, and  is owned by Northey and Hayes, of  Olalla. A lead of good grade ore about  8 feet wide, chiefly garnetite carrying  yellow copper with magnetic iron and  iron pyrites, was drifted on and the  breast of the tunnel still shows the  continuance of the ore-body, but of a  higher grade than was taken out in the  first 10 feet, the last assay giving high  MISS  LOWNDES' CONCERT  values in gold, in addition to a fairly  The "Old Reliable'  Shoemaker  SHOES MADE TO ORDER.

Its bulk is far too great.  But a single odd break in its continuity  in the shape of a message from the  Roman Catholic parish priest-of Cork-  ery. Ontario, seems to demand attention. The message, which is given  the publicity of a picture postcard,  reads thus:���������  "I beg to state that I do not want  your paper, nor any, other Imperial  trash from across the seas. We all  would be grateful if you would keep  your Imperial paupers and gaolbirds  at your side of the Atlantic, as well  as all other Imperial rubbish. Canada  for Canadians.  W. E. CaVanagh, P. P."  and carries good values.  A 150 h. p. Jenckes ��������� hoist aiid two  new boilers, which will increase the  boiler capacity at present'available to  about 300 h. p., are ordered. The mill  cyanide plant are being put in shape  for steady work in the spring and the  capacity of the latter increased, the  new headworks and ore-bins are also  in course of preparation.  The company operating this mine  has recently concluded an agreement  with the Strathyre Company, of Montreal, formerly working* claims in the  camp, for the purchase of its property  and effects. This arrangement is of  great importance locally, as it enlarges  the sphere of Stemwinder operations  (two of the five claims purchased adjoining the Stemwinder group) and will  mean work on property otherwise idle.  Upper S$ Lower Keremeos Valley.  Throughout this section very little  'work outside of assessments has been  done this year, although two properties at Camp Beaconsfield have pushed  development, and the Dolphin at Olalla. As the new railway is now completed to Keremeos, it is the general  belief that 190S will see a great im-  large   percentage   of   copper  and   16  ounces of silver. -  .  r *  Camp Beaconsfield.  The tunnelon the Standard was continued 40 feet farther, and the. ledge,  which outcrops on the ridge, was intersected at a depth of 75 feet. The  ore was of the.same value as at the  surface, showing no improvement. On  the Gibraltar a new blacksmith shop  was erected about 100 feet from the  shaft. For the first 24 feet the shaft is  perpendicular and then dips to the  east at an angle, of 60 degrees. This  was the first time the shaft had been  uriwatered since 1904, and the fumes  of the dynamite clung, to the wet walls  so persistently tha^the men were sick  nearly all the time. It was iutended'  to sink another25 feet and then cross-,  cut, but rather than waste time waiting for a gas-dispersing appliance,  work was started in the Guihevieve  No. 1 tunnel; where the breast is in  good-looking ore,: but not of very high  grade as yet. The. work .'done-on. this  group during the year was 110 feet of  tunnelling, 10 feet of shaft and several  open' cuts. ''''���������������  In the Gem group an immense outcrop of pyrrhotite and arsenical iron,  200 feet wide, is traced right on to the  Gibraltar claim on the top of the  mountain'. In the long tunnel on the  Gem some good ore was met with, garnetite carrying yellow copper, and the  work this year was all done in this  tunnel, which is now in nearly 300  feet. The owners are James McNulty  and Thomas Roderick, of Phoenix.  Green Mountain.  Very little work was done in this  camp, many of the claims being Crown-  granted. On the Green Mountain  claim, owned by James Black efc al., a  large hole has been sunk on the ledge  and good copper values met with at a  deptli of 12 feet. The actual size of  the ore-body has not been ascertained,  but it is evidently large at that particular  point.  Continued Next Week.  A,, most enjoyable event was the  concert given hv Miss LowndesMissist-  ed by Keremeos and Hedley talent,  oh Tuesday evening last in Fraternity  Hall. The hall was very well filled  with an appreciative audience.  . The first number on the programme  was a Pianoforte Duet by Mrs. Dickenson and Miss Lowndes, which was  very well received. The chairman,  Mr. S. L. Smith, then introduced Mrs.  J. A. Brown of Keremeos, who appeared for the first time before a Hedley audience and sang "The Swallows"  which reached the highest expectations. Since coining to Keremeos,  Mrs. Brown's fame as a singer has  gone far- and near, and everyone'��������� expected to hear something good, and ,  they were not disappointed.  The third item on the programme  was a violin solo, "Slavonic.Cradle  Song," by Mr. W. Daly, of Keremeos,  which was followed by a song, ''Queen  of the Earth" by Mr. T. Dickenson,  who is no stranger to' a Iledley audience, although it is some time since  they have had the pleasure of hearing  him. Miss Lowndes then gave a piano  solo, which pleased the audience, and  was followed by Mrs. Brown'in , her -  song, "Smiles," which was in a different vein from her first song, and although it was- her intention not to  give any encores," the applause was so r  incessant that she was forced to .reappear. ' Tlie next item was a comic  song, "Killaloo", by JVIr. G. Kirby of  Keremeos. which captured the audience. This brought the first part of  the programme to a close, and after  an interval of 15 minutes, the Misses  Gertrude and Marjorie Smith-gave a  Pianoforte Duet, which was remarkably well rendered and showed great  improvement in their playing since  their last appearance.  Mrs. Brown then followed with a  song entitled "Roses" and^was presented with a beautiful bouquet, of  rose's by Miss Monica Smith. A violin  solo, "Oh The Wheel" by Mr. W. Daly  came next and was very much appreciated. This was followed by Mr.  Dickenson in his song, "The Mighty  Deep," which is remarkably well adapted t*i his rich baritone voice. Miss  Lowndes gave another Pianoforte  Solo', and was followed by Mrs. Brown  in another very sweet song "Roses,"  and holding the bouquet which she  had just received. The last piece on  the programme was a character song,.  "The Chinese Sbjer Man," rendered  by Mr. Kirby in his inimitable style,  and for an encore he gave*"The Ragtime Clock," which was certainly very-  funny..  Mr. Smith then moved a vote of  thanks to the visitors who so kindly  assisted Miss Lowndes on the programme and with the singing of the  National Anthem, :\ very enjoyable  evening was brought to a close.  T. D.   PICKARD   ENGAGES   MEN.  DEATH OF OLD PIONEER  Mrs.  Emily    Dowding   Dies   Suddenly  In Spokane.  Old-timers will regret to learn the  death of Emily Dowding, relict of the  late Judge Haynes which took place  in Spokane on Monday.  Deceased had been in Seattle for  some time, but lately removed to  Spokane and was under treatment in  the hospital there. Her condition was  not believed to be sq serious and the  end came quite sudden.  The remains were brought to Oroville on Monday and and buried in the  family plot at Osoyoos on Wednesday  at"2 p. m,     Many old-timers attended.  A dispatch from Prince Rupert  says: "T. D. Pickard of the mines at  Goose Bay, Observatory Inlet, was in  Prince Rupert last week looking for  experienced miners. The property is  owned by the Rodgers Syndicate, who  have ample means to work it, as Mr.  Rodgers was for several years in  charge of the mining property of the  Marcus Daly estate at Hedley, Simil-  kaiiieen district. Including those helmed here, he will have over thirty  men at the mine. Win. Hanna, one  of the best all-round miners in British  Columbia, will go with him from here,  and may be gone six months if he  likes the layout."  CARD OF THANKS.  Miss Lowndes desires to express her  hearty thanks to all who in any way  assisted her in making her concert the  success it proved to he.  Henry Bahrs is in town making arrangements to start work on the Gladstone Tunnel and Power Company's  big project down the valley.' The project, for which Mr. Bahrs claims to  have the necessary capital subscribed,  includes installing a big power plant  at Susap Falls and using the poweV  developed in prosecuting development  work on a vast scale at the Gladstone;  claim near by. Mr. Bahrs also contemplates generating enough electricity to supply the whole of the lower  valley, including Keremeos with light  and power. He-is also most confident  that in their development work tbey  will strike large quantities of rich ore..  So mote it Ik*.���������Trumpet.

It is no  exaggeration  to  say  that only now are  the., natural  resources of British Columbia  becoming realised and the possibilities of the future  development  of the  Province  forcing  themselves on the  attention of  the "world.    The  work  done by  the   pioneers   of   the  Western  Province of Canada is now yield-  " ing results, and the patient toil  with which they laid the foundations of the commercial and  industrial   fabric   is   enabling  their successors to raise a structure that will make British Columbia pre-eminent among the  provinces of tlie Dominion. For  yeais'the handful  of people in  this Province struggled against  many difficulties. Their remoteness from the more  populous  parts of Canada,   from which  they were shut off by mountain  barriers and separated by thousands of miles of prairie without  other inhabitants  than  a few  trappers and scattered bands of  roving Indians, made any great  progress impossible and inclined  them to look rather to the Pacific States than to Eastern Canada as the direction from which  would   come   the   impulse   for  greater   trade   and   enterprise.  Only those   who  were here in  those  early  days,  or who, perchance, visited tlie British Colony    most   remote    from    the  Mother Land, can have realised  the situation that then   existed  or   understood   the   difficulties  that  confronted the early settlers.    But  those who had per  sonal knowledge of that situation could easily understand the  persistency with which the people urged railway communication with the East and made its  accomplishment the condition  on which the Province would  remain in the Confederation.  With the advent of-the Canadian Pacific Railway to the  Coast the whole situation was  changed. But the bright anticipations based on that accomplishment were not destined to  be immediately realised. The  physical difficulties in the way  of opening up the Province and  making settlement possible were  very great, and their removal  only  to  he had  at a cost that j  tried severely the modest financial resources of scarcely more  than fifty thousand white people. There was also another  drawback to be overcome before  1 the capital and population ne-  jcessary for the progress of the  1 Province could be secured, and  that was the removal of the  .prejudice against tlie country,  which various circumstances  had created both in Great Britain and eastern Canada. Only  by degrees has this been done,  but to-day there is no part of  this vast Dominion where it can  be claimed-there are greater opportunities for both capital and  settlement than are to be found  in. British Columbia. It must  be the duty of both our government and people to sec that nothing is done to lessen the favor  ��������� --���������'.," I*- ���������  with which the Province- is regarded abi'oad, or to diminish  the confidence which is now felt  in respect to the great future  that lies before it.  Without in the least exaggerating the facts, it'can scarcely  be denied that in  the  variety,  as  well as . in the amplitude of  its   natural   resources,   British  Columbia  leads   all   the  other  provinces.   In our forest wealth  there is no dispute that British  Columbia surpasses not only any  of the other provinces, but any  other territory on this continent, and with proper conservation of our forests this Province  should be the timber reserve of  the whole world.   There is a responsibility,   therefore,   resting  upon us that this great wealth  should not  be   squandered   or  disposed   of  without adequate  return.   In our sea and  inland  fisheries we have another great  source of wealth and of occupation.   That in the past sufficient  attention has not been jiaid  to  our fisheries, in respect to their  conservation and regulation, by  either the Federal or Provincial  authorities,   is   now   admitted,  and the truth of that fact shown  by the partial depletion of the  salmon fishery.   There is, however, no reason to doubt that it  is not too late to restore that  fishery to its former satisfactory  position, while no   more  time  should   be   lost before   proper  measures are taken for the conservation   of   the  halibut and  other deep-sea fisheries���������available  as they are as a source of  permanent wealth and employment for a considerable number  of our population.  It was the mineral  wealth���������  especially that of the precious  metals ��������� of  British   Columbia  that half a century ago first attracted attention to this country  and led to an influx of population.    But the- alluvial gravels"  of the Fraser and other streams  did  not continue for   long   to  yield such returns as satisfied  the seekers, and the mining industry  dwindled for a number  of years until it became of little  value, either as a means of revenue or a source of employment.  But during the  last ten  years  there has been a great revival,  and from the  quartz ledges  of  the Kootenays and other parts  of the Province the production  of both the  base and precious  metals is yearly increasing.   Already the annual value of the  output of our mines has passed  the   twenty-five  million  mark,  and while the productiveness of  the established  mining district  is  steadily growing,   new  and  promising territories are being  discovered and developed.  British Columbia's " premier industry"   is   likely   to  make great  strides when the northern part  of the Province is opened up by  the  Grand Trunk Pacific Rail  way, and sections believed to be  rich in minerals can be made  accessible for practical mining  operations.; In many parts of  the 'Proyihce valuable deposits  of coal have been discovered;,  and few countries in the world  are better supplied with stores  of fuel than British Columbia.  Last,   but by no means the  least, in "tlie. sources of Provin-  ciaTwealth is that of agriculture.  Not so many years ago the suggestion that Biitish Columbia  would ever be ah agricultural  country  would   have  been  received   with  scepticism, if not  derision.    But  what has been  done in  scarcely more than a  decade shows  tliat not only is  agriculture capable of successful  prosecution here,  but that its  products in all its branches are  likely in the near future to place  that pursuit in the second place  as regards value among all our  industries.     While  dairying  is  an important branch of Provincial agriculture, the factor which  has caused the industry to advance "by*leaps and bounds" is  the cultivation of fruit.   Fruit  raising is undoubtedly destined  to make extraordinary progress  within   our   borders,   and   we  know of no other industrial factor likely to have  such  important   and   far-reaching   social,  commercial and   industrial effects on the situation in British  Columbia    as    this    particular  branch of agriculture.    It has  already added   enormously . to  the value of large tracts of land,  and is creating close settlement  that otherwise would be impossible.    It adds annually millions  to the wealth of the Province,  although as yet the industry is  only   in   its   infancy.     In   the  sources of our potential wealth  fruit culture will-be one of the  most important,  and in other  respects exert a most beneficent  influence   on   the   progress .of  British    Columbia. ��������� News-Advertiser.

The hopes of some * of the. property  bwners have gone up another hundred  points, a large party of C. P. R. officials having arrived last. Wednesday,  proceeding south to Midway on Thursday-morning. The inference drawn is  that they are looking over the country between "here and1 Midway with  -the intention of connecting the two  points as soon as possible. Some of  the people have heard the engine  whistling already.  The new range of the P. C. R. A.  (these mystic letters mean Penticton  Civiliau Rifle Association) was opened  by W. T.

Not only  were men trained, to .use the rifle, but  they were getting themselves ready to  defend hearth, home arid empire  should ever the necessity arise. Mr.  Shatford 'in closing stated that it  would give him the greatest pleasure  if the association would allow him to*  present'a. cup to be competed for as  the executive, might arrange. Mr. G.  F.

Mr. Shatford has a creditable  record for keeping personally in touch  with hisconstitutents all oyer the riding. He is not like the bum beggar  who calls round just at mealtime, but  he drops in when the campaign is not  on and provincial politics are as quiet  as the Princeton Board of Trade. Mr.  Shatford went up to Tulameen in company with Road Superintendent Dear-  dor If, returning he will visit the North"  Fork coal mines from Granite. Mr.  Shatford arrived in Princeton after  the foregoing was in type. He saw  the North Fork coal mines, and was  very pleased with all that he had seen.  ���������Similkameen Star.

The  scarcity of partridges, a subject "of so  much comment among sportsmen, is  discussed,   the conclusion   arrived at  being- that iii all probability the birds  have been killed bit'-by a disease which  has been general in its character and  results. Variety is given in an explora-  * tion paper entitled Fresh Fields iii the  Rockies; In a Boy's.Gamp'in Teniag-  anii  arid   others.

Ma liy advertisers have a "somewhat  mistaken idea of the functions of advertising. They consider that the  mere purchase of space in an advertising medium and the insertion of an  advertisment should forthwith bring  ��������� theiii in a great deal of business���������in  fact enough to justify them in saying  that advertising pays. When their  attempt does not have this immediate  result, they at once come to the conclusion that advertising does not pay.  A business man, who runs a trial  advertisement in a medium for a single  insertion, hopes thereby to get returns  from every reader of the paper. When  only one. or two answer, instead of being gratified, he is disappointed. He  forgets the dozen or- so more, who noted his advertisement, but who, by  reason of the indolence of human nature, neglected to reply at once,. and  gradual!}- forgot about it. There, was  no second insertion to quicken the  memory and no 'third'insertion to stir  t-honi up. The effect of the advertisement was lost on them.  Then there is another aspect of the  case. Looking from the reader's stand-,  point, hi; sees o'ne firm advertising  spasmodically arid another firm advertising regularly. What is his natural  'conclusion as to "the merits of the two  houses. Undoubtedly he will be led,  perhaps unconsciously, to attribute,  greater solidity and progressiveness to  the firm which uses space regularly.  This is a psychological fact. It means  that it pays to advertise regularly,  whether the advertiser can trace direct  results or not.  Again, an advertiser who asserts  that advertising does not pay, oftentimes has only himself to blame. There  is a way to advertise well and there is  a way to advertise ill. It is for the  adverliser himself to make his publicity tell. Do not be inclined to blame  the medium and blame advertising in  general. Rather ask if you are obtaining the best possible effects in the composition of your' advertisement, both  literary and typographical,  Many arguments can be brought  forward to support our position. Persistency is needed in advertising as  much as in anything else if success is  to be obtained. Others have succeeded  and it has been through continuous  effort. Therefore, before condemning  advertising, give it a fair and reasonable trial.���������Bookseller and Stationer.  For Those Who Invest Now.
