NOTICE  If anything were wanting to show  the people of the Situilkamecnthe fate  from which they'were saved by Messrs  Shatford and Macgowan during the  last session of the Provincial Legislature* it tias been supplied in the interview granted by Mr. ^Wm, Whyte of  the C. P. R. to the Nelson News.  The Vancouver World recently  published an article' on the service  rendered by Messrs. Shatford and  Macgowan, in preventing the giving  away of a large subsidy to the C. P. R.  without any binding agreement upon  them as to time allowed them for  building. The World claimed to give  out authoritatively what other papers  had given as surmise during the progress of the session and i t now looks  as if those surmises were pretty near  the mark. It seemed preposterous  that the C. P. R. should demand a  large subsidy to. build from Spence's  Bridge to Midway, and at. the same  time to refuse to bind themselves to  build the road within any reasonable'  allotted time, and yet after this statement by Mr. Why te there is no further any ground for doubting it.  Neither is there further need to disguise the fact that the C. P. R. has no  use for the Similkameen, and never  had.    They-don't intend. to build .because they pretend there is nothing to  build for.    Why .should they ask the  people to refuse to allow Hill to  build  at once for nothing, what they would  not agree to do in a given time with a  subsidy ?   Mr. Why te persists in harping on the old song about Similkameen  trade going to Everett.    He doesn't  seem to realize that his arguments,  like the Kilkenny cats,  devour each  other.    If the Similkameen trade is  not sufficient to warrant the building  of a road, then why mourn over the  loss of it going  to Everett.    Mr.  Hill  is a rival; then let that rival squander  his substance by building unaided an  unprofitable road.  It   is   to   be   hoped    that   Duncan  Ross will make,  good   use   of   these  He has steadily refused to pledge his  company to building any specified portion of the road through' British Col-.  -umbia, or to establishing a western  terminus in British Columbia.  '*  "If he gets what he wants lie will  probably enter at the points that are  .most promising at present. Then instead' of crossing the mountains, he.  Will probably build down the valley of  the Skagit and come out at the * coast  at' or ileal* Everett. . '.*'..  '���������"No, those operations will not hurry  its. .

L. A. Clark just returned .from a  week's trip up to the divide between  Okanagan Lake and Kettle river.  The "object of the trip was for the purpose of locating sites for irrigating the  Ellis estate now owned by. the .Southern Okanagan Land Co:  Miss Daisy McLellan ��������� of Okanagan  Falls has returned to her home after  spending a week at Green Mbuutain.  There are still more signs of prosper-"  ity in the country. The latest is a milk  house in course of construction at  Green Mountain, where the thirsty  traveler can stop and get a drink of  ice cold milk to cheer him on his way.  Mr. and Mrs Farleigh were visitors  at Green Mountain on .Sunday, comparing notes in agriculture and horticulture. Everything in gardens and  crops looks favorable this spring, with  just enough rain to keep things glowing fine.  L. A. Clark shot a large grizzly bear  this morning up on the range. He had  set a bear trap and found-the bear drag-  ing the trap and log- to which it was  fastened. The bear woidd have made  an excellent stump-puller if he had  had been trained.  Mrs. Nicholl, naturalist, who is just  out from England to spend some time  in British Columbia in quest of butterflies and good health, has been stopping a week at Green Mountain. From  there she goes on to Lake Chelan,  Wash., where she will try to get some  rare specimens which she presents to  Vienna and British museums. After  finding in B. C. such a beautiful climate when here last summer, she returned this spring to continue the  search for butterflies. Although we  want to keep a few of the beauties in  the country, we hope she . may come  again next.year.  Armistice.'Probably. Declared  -   .';    ''    Ere  This.

Men  who would pay any more attention to  the C. P. R.'s opposition to the V. V.  & E. Bill, after this statement-by Mr.  Whyte, should be drummed out of the  House."

Paris is Russia's choice as the place  of opening peace negotiations. If-Japan  insists upon Manchuria or Washington, Russia doubtless will agree, but  Paris is preferred, and the Emperor is  already prepared to issue instructions  to M. Nelidoff, the ambassador to  France, to act as plenipotentiary to  receive the Japanese conditions.  The Russian government has communicated to the administration at  Washington its consent to the publication of Russia's reply to President  Roosevelt's appeal, at the same time,  thanking the President warmly for  the friendly and lofty spirit in which  .it .was conceived.

R.  several years ago fyled plans  with.the Government for the  construction of a railway line  through the Similkameen valley and that this act of t'yling  on their part' constitutes for  them a priority of claim in the  selection of route.  Now in view of the fact  that  Mr. William Whyte has given  out something of the  C. P. R.'s  intentions with   regard  to  the  Similkameen and ��������� that  he   can  he claimed to speak, authoritatively on behalf of the C. P.  R.,  it is about time that, people  of  the Similkameen were  waking  up to their own   interests , and  to the Gaztte it would seem  at  the present time that the most  practical way to go about safeguarding   our    own    interests  here in the Similkameen would  be to set on  foot a  movement  to    inquire    further    into  this  claim of the C. P. R.  for priority in the selection   of a  route,  and if necessary to take  vigorous steps to have said claim set  aside.    If the C. P. R.  have   no  immediate intention of building  (and Mr. Whyte says they have  not)    why  should    any    bogus  claim ol:'  priority  of  this  kind  be allowed to stand  to   hamper  others?    At the present time it  is hampering  the   engineers   of  the   Great   Northern    in   their  work in this valley.  We have a Railway  Commission in this  country,   and  matters of that kind  should come  within their scope.    Or,  failing  in    obtaining    justice    at   the  hands of the Railway Commission   it  will  be  up to the Government at Victoria with whom  the plans have been filed, to return to the  C. P. R. their route  plans with the advice that they  put  them  away in  their own  pigeon-holes to  accumulate the  dust which Mr. Whyte indicates  will have time to settle on them  before they are required.   It  is  time enough for them to put on  fyle with the government, their  plans when they are  prepared  to go on and build. -British. Col  umbia has hadr'���������move'' than - enough of tins dog-in-the-rnanger  work. Here isyjjt matter for the  Hedley Board of Trade to take  the initiative in; and this is no  time for supineness. Mr.Whyte'  has spoken, give him the benefit of it. '���������..'������������������  ��������� W h en th e Conservati ve government at Ottawa gave to  D.  C. Gorbin a charter to build the  Nels6n & Fort Sheppard, road  across the boundary  line into.  British Columbia, they had no  precedent of any like road west  of Winnipeg to sanction their  course, and  they  were blamed  by the whole Liberal party with  being puppets in  the  hands  of  the C. P. R. and yet the bill Avas  passed,   granting, that! charter  without any turmoil or obstruction.   There was no minister of.  railways obstructing as Emmer-  son is now doing with the "V*. V.  & E. bill, and no minister .of justice leaving his post and going  off to" Toronto for an indefinite  period with  the. injunction to  his   colleagues   that   he didn't  want the bill passed in  his absence.   It is Emmerson who is  authority for the statement that  Fitzpatrick   made   the request  that the V. V. & E. bill be not  proceeded with in his absence.  This   happened   on   May 30th,  and here we are, on June  15th,  apparently farther away from  the goal than  we were   then.  There is something rotten.

Of  course it might Hot be altogether satisfactory to the people of  Fairview, but if the old route  is established to Osoyoos, the  mail could be delivered in Fair-  view a few hours after the  stage passes through Osoyoos.  This, of course, is all oil the assumption that we ha ve a post  office department in Canada  that might be disposed to consider the benefit or convenience  of the inhabitants, and that is  rather a daring assumption to  take after the experience which  we have been having.  *���������*-    %,  8 BANK OF  BRITISH NORTH AMERICA  Capital���������$4,866,666.

Things that were formerly concealed with a judicious  coating of diplomatic lying are  now blurted out. Mr. Whyte  has been talking ill-naturedly  arid stupidly, but the corporation's Vancouver organ, the  Province, caps the climax when  it, says::  "The Province would sooner set* the  Shnilkanieen remain undeveloped for  another generation than that its  wealth .should go to prop up the fortunes of people ,oii the othei* side of  the line." ,  Well, the Similkameen would  "remain undeveloped- for another generation " if it had to  depend on the C.

If  the people of this country are  wise and give Mr. Hill what he  is asking he.will give us a road  from-the'Boundary Avith a Vancouver terminus.

There  is an Indian ranclierie across the river  at this point,, and the Indians must  have been aware that the blankets and  rifle were there fill the time.

Mrs. Leahy was  so badly crippled   with  Rheumatism  that she could only   get  about  with  difficulty on   crutches.   The crutches  have now been laid aside   and   she  is  fast gaining   health     and    strength.  Moyie is said to be noted for its damp-1  ness   while   the   Similkameen   valley  with its cactus-covered benches is the  land of.sunshine and drought.  This week two four horse loads of  mining material were sent out by the  Gran by Co. to claims recently bonded  on Kruger or Dividend mountain, between Osoyoos lake and the , Similkameen river. It is understood that,a  bond has been taken on the Lakeview  and Dividend claims, on which some  prospecting will be done. John Rogers  will be in charge and will put a dozen  men at work.

The trial of Jimmy Jameson, half  breed, who was arrested hero last week  in connection with the knife liielee between him and Francois'on Keremeos  Creek, took place before C. A. R.*  Lanibly, S. M., at Fairview. The  hearing brought out the facts that  Francois instead of being the offender,  was the aggrieved party, and Jameson's information, sworn out against  him was a piece of consummate cheek.  The charges laid against Jameson  were that of indecent assault and using a knife in his attack upon Francois. Other and more serious charges  it is said might have been preferred,,  and if so, it is questionable whether it  was wise n'ot to have laid them.  At all events the evidence was sufficient to commit him for trial at the  assizes, while Francois was acquitted.  GENERAL.  King Alfonso had a real nice time in  England.  London   and   North' Oxford    both'  went Liberal.   The majorities are -not  stated but-are said to be large.  Construction work began on the  Grand Trunk Pacific at Kakabeka.  There is no announcement concerning  work in British Columbia.

Cockburn died suddenly  in Toronto last week. Mr. Cockburn  was at the head of the Muskoka Navigation Co., and was prominent in political circles a decade ago.  The Canadian Artillery is to be rearmed with tlie new Impounder quick  firing gun of the same type as that  just supplied to the Royal Field Artillery of the British service. The failure  of the British 15 pounder guns which  were out-classed and out-ranged by  the Boer guns at Colenzo,. demanded  the improvement.  Concerning the Roads.  HOPKINS <8t> McINNES, Proprietors, Hedley, B. C.  Teams furnished to do freighting,, transferring and  general teaming, and good saddle  horses always on hand.  W. C. Bate, road supervisor for the  Similkameen riding, was in town over  Sunday. Mr. Bate says that it is the  intention to allow the water in Twenty  Mile creek to subside somewhat before  attempting any work on it. Mr. Bate  reports this to lie an exceptionally favorable year for roads in the district, as  much less damage was done in the  early spring from melting of the snow,  and the absence of high water prevented damage from washouts; in this way  a great deal of money has been saved  which will go towards the general improvement of the roads in the district.  Now that the cattle drives are over,  the road along the Similkameen river  between Keremeos and Princeton .will  be cleaned out and put in good shape.  To have done this earlier would have  meant a useless waste of money.  Try  >SS  CEYLON TEA.  i'a  Pure  and   Invigorating.
