On Saturday night  one   of   them",  LIKE BOLT FROM BLUE  News ot Wireless Disclosures Comes as  Unwelcome Surprise to Stockholders���������Tinhorns Jubilant  COLONIAL DEFENCE  Daily papers reaching here on Friday last had surprisingly unwelcome  news for holders of United Wireless  Telegraph stock. Tlie despatches ap-  pearing in these dailies told ot the arrest; on  behalf of the United States  Lord Lucas Makes Suggestion In Re-  . gard to Improvement of Forces  Carmenuchi  Dominick,  made a mur-l ,.  7 . ,,      .:,        -. T.       Post Office Department of C. C. Wil  derous assault  with a razor ,,on Jim r  Volpe in  which he attempted  to be  head him.   The affray took place in  Princeton on  the platform in'front of  the Tulameen  hotel.     The men had  been  working out on the line at station  work and  came into Princeton  that afternoon'. There was no quarrelling rior altercation;, between1 them at  the time and the affair was altogether  treacherous arid cold-blooded, for the  assailant went over to Thomas' store  after they had  been drinkintr for a  while and bought a razor with which  he returned.   Suddenly and without  warning he slashed at Volpe catching  him first at the back of the neck and  drawing the razor around to the wind  pipe he narrowlv missed the jugular  vein. , The long wound > while deep in  places is hot regarded by the. doctor as  serious.     Volpe  was   brought to  the  railway hospital at  Hedley.     When  first cut he sat down  on a  bench and  made no outcry for several minutes  until,finally he called for a doctor and  by this  time Dominick had time to  escape. - " '  Constable Hewatt, however, on  learning of the affair;took prompt  steps for his apprehension and the  telephone was used to head him off.  He kept off the wagon roads and a  couple of days later was caught about  half way between Princeton and Nicola, presumably on the One-mile Trail.  The only reason Volpe can assign for  the assault was that in his capacity as  foreman of the gang he had occasion  at times to collect from the men to  send out members who were injured  and on these occasions Dominick  would not contribute and was 'disagreeable and a little friction was  caused terminating as above.        "-��������� ���������'  NEARING COMPLETION  Oroville;Wenatchee Line soon Ready for  the Rails.  (Oroville Gazette)  The heavy blasting that has reverberated  through  the valley  for   the  past week was the work of a gang of  men engaged in connecting the "Y"  on the east side of the Okanagan river  with  the grade of the Oroville-We-  uatchee branch.    The contractors ran  against some prettv heavy rock work  at that point requiring the burning of  a goodly quantity of powder.     When  this short link is finished there will be  a continuous roadbed for a long distance all ready for the ties and rails..  The grade is about entirely completed  from Oroville  to Tonasket, and the  gaps from that point to  Pateros, the  present terminus,  are being   rapidly  filled  in.     There is some  bridge and  culvert work  to be finished,  but from  present indications there is no known  reason why the entire length of the  line should not be ready for- the steel.  START IN EARLY  Canadian* Northern Atlantic Liners to be  Record-Breakers  Veenon, B. C.  Quebec, June 15.���������What is believed  to bo a trans-Alantic record has been  established by the steamer Royal Edward, of the Royal Steamship line,  which arrived in port at 3 p.m. today.  The Royal Edward left Bristol at  7 p.m. on Thursday last, and by reaching here at 3 p.m. today establishes a  record which is fifty minutes ahead  of tbe best time yet made, which was  bv the Empress of Ireland.  After discharging Quebec passengers and freight here the Royal Edward left for Montreal.  son, president of the company, '8. C.  Bogart, vice-president and Tompkins,  head of the leading" selling agency,  the charge being' that of using the  mails for fraudulent purposes. Tbe  despatches went on to say" that stock  was being loaded "on to the public,at  grossly inflated prices and that the operating department was being conducted at a loss.  This latter statement on the part of  post office inspectors, however, is denied both by the principals arrested  and by the heads of the operating and  construction departments who claim  that a substantial profit results from  the operating of the system.  If the condition of affairs is anything  like us bad as the first reports indicate  then it is evident that the swindle has  been much more widespread than the  mere arrest of these three would warrant'and that those fiscal agents who  issue the literature-upon which stock  was sold under misrepresentation were  equally culpable for the. false statements sent out.  Tn Canada most pf the stock sold  was in Manitoba, especially Winnipeg  and Brandon, and territories. In British Columbia most of it was placed in  Victoria and Vancouver and a few.  ���������'places in the interior, Hedley included,  for which latter the writer is to blame,  but all the sales were made in perfect  good faith under the- coast agency of  Chailes;L. Parker, of Vancouver who  was selling*underhisfatherOeo.H.Parker, * Seattle, who was general fiscal  agent for the west. -  The heads of the operating depart-"  merit say that this denouement will  not effect the operating department  which is on a basis quite separate from  the stock-vending and stock manipu>,  rating end of the affair, arid while it  would be folly to disregard the seriousness of the situation which would lead  the /P. O. department t6 proceed as  they have done or to try' to minimize  the calamity, it is more than probable  that the'first reports given out to the  press were, more or less  Exaggerated.  .When the heads   of the company  and the fiscal agents have deceived  the people in  the  manner in which  they hrive done it is difficult to believe  anything which  they haVe: given out  regarding the company arid'its work-"  ings,  nevertheless  the writer a year  ago was through the company's factory at Seattle .under a special permit  from. R. H. Armstrong,  the superintendent pf construction on the Pacific  coast,'arid was taken through by the  factory   superintendent   Nelson   and  shown the whole process of manufacture of wireless equipment; saw the  large force of operators   employed on  the day shift, and a stack of orders on  the fyle which was piling up faster  than thev could turn out the work.  The writer was first attracted to the  enterprise by an old friend, then and  London, June 18.���������In  the house of  Lords on Monday Lord Lucas,  parli-  mentary secretary to the war office,,  speaking   in   connection   with   Lord  Kitchener's resignation, said  that.so  much benefit to the forces of the Dominions  was anticipated from the re-  cent visit of Lord Kitchener to Australia and  that of General French to  Canada that if as a result of the next  colonial conference visits to the Dominions for the purpose of inspection  and advice on military . matter>*'couId  be made more or less systematically by  an officer of high rank  and   distinguished military service,  the government  believe it  would  produce more  useful results. If this should be agreed  to the most appropriate officer to carry  out such a duty would be the commander-in-chief of the Mediterranean.  Lord Lansdowue remarked that he  could imagine nothing more unfortunate than that the Canadian and Australian Governments should read this  proposal for the first time in the"'public press..   ���������-. -  ' Lord Lucas said he had made qualifications with regard to Canada and  Australia./ The.governments.of these  countries certainly woiild be consulted  before'anything was decided.  RAILWAYS RETRENCHING  Northern Pacific President; Says "Action  is Due to Increased Taxes ,  and Wages  FORTUNATE G. T. P.'  St. Paul, Minn., June 19.���������The railways of the Northwest wit:: offices  here, issued orders to-day stopping  practically all construction work. The  Northern Pacific road discharged- 2.C00  men, the Great Northern S.COi), the  Northwestern 000 and the Milwaukee  system 1.200:  Later the offices of the Saute Fe announced the discharge of -1,000 and the  Rock Island 1,500 men. ���������  President Elliot, of theNorUiorn Pacific, gave as causes for the retrench;  inent policy of the road.-- increased  taxes, wages, cost of materials arid the  better service demanded by tlie public  iilso the Increased power ot' the state  and national railway commissions  w.ith,reference to rates.  Louis Hill, president of GiealNorth-  !erri~ denies the accuracy of the report  so far the- G. N. R. is concerned, and  blames the rumor on Wall street  which he^ holds responsible for any  re'trenclmient'that may occur and  says that- Wall street has no faith in-  anything. #  A FICTITIOUS ANGUS  .Residents   of Okanagan   Falls   Protest'  Against Effort to Drag Their.

PRINCETON,  B.C.  now a resident in Tacoma who was  closely connected with large manufacturing and shipping interests and who  was putting his spare cash into United  Wireless which ho regarded as a good  investment. He had nothing whatever to do with the sale of stock and  consequently was not trying to influence with any mercenary object in  view nor did he know at the time or  since that the conversation was having any influence. He is now in the  Washington state legislature.  We were all led to believe^ that the  proceeds of the stock was all going into extension of the system and were  furnished by the fiscal agents and  head office with minute details as to  what those extensions consisted of.  Only a couple of weeks ago a stockholder in Hedley who wrote the fiscal  agent in Seattle asking how the company could pay dividends on a capital  of $100,000,000, that being what $50.00  per share would represent, and received the reply that with only five per  cent of the ships which would have to  be equipped in the next few years they  ��������� ������������������ (Oroville Gazette.)  Geo. W. Loudon and Clay Fruit  passed through Oroville Monday with  bands of sheep,.headed for markets in  British Columbia. Mr. Loudon was  taking out 650 head,- and his destination was Vernon. He expected to.,  make the drive'in about ten days. Mr.  Fruit had a bunch of 230 which his assistants were herding over the hill-to  Greenwood. The animals were yearlings. Both gentlemen unload large  consignments across the border every  summer. Mr. Loudon states that a few  years ago there w.-is no market for  lambs on the British Columbia side of  the border, although a good demand  for matured mutton has? always existed. Now the Canadians have acquired  a taste for lamb, and it is difficult to  fill orders.  The   Gazette has. received a letter  from a  resident and  property-holder  in Okanagan Falls who gives his name,  as a guarantee of good faith  but does  not wish  to have it made public,   requesting the editor to have the people  at the Falls placed in,a proper light as..  regards "the Penticton racket," as he  calls-it.   ,  ' .���������    ,. i ],'.  ;   He-says there is ho one by the name  >of Angus McLeod known at Okanagan  ���������Falls and is quite sure, that no one of  that name owns any, property there.  ;He- thinks the. oneMVwho   wrote,   the  letter over that signature which ap-  ,peared4i*u thed?enticton Press, knowing that there were a nirinbei of English a't the Falls  "watited to get them  tangled up in that Penticton racket".  Neither are any of the property-holders in Okanagan Falls in sympathy in  the slightest degree, with the senti-.  rirents in  the original article   which  precipitated the trouble,  and he says  that it is not a square'.deal cm them to  be made  to appear as if they were in  sympathy   with disloyal   sentiments  when they me not. " '  The "Angus McLeod" letter should  hardly be taken seriously and while it  is abusive and insulting towards Englishmen it is really Canadians who  have most cause to be ashamed of it  lin as much as the writer of it tries to  make it appear that Canadians share  the absurd views it expressed. It i.<  only at the request of our protesting  friend from Okanagan Falls that we  pay any further attention to the matter which the public will. now be  pleased to forget.  could pay good dividends on $100,000.-  000 and expected to pay a dividend  after the next annual meeting. They  now claim to be doing over 85% of all  the wireless business done.  Surely the same authority which licenced the company in the first place  and which has now gone after the  principals will also have power to compel restitution, and if the steals have  been of the gigantic proportions which  they are represented a reasonable proportion of the loot should be recovered for shareholders and the rest handed over to the constructing and operating departments to provide sufficient  manufacturing facilities to keep pace  with the demand for equipment, so  hat innocent stock-holders may yet  have a fair run for their money.  HAMILTON--MEGRAW  ADVERTISE    IN   THE    GAZETTE  A quiet wedding occurred in Hedley  on Thursday evening June KH.h, at the  residence of the editor- on Kingston  Avenue, when his sister Miss Sara  Megraw was united in marriage with  Mr.,S. E. Hamilton.  The ceremony   was  performed   by  Rev. A, H. Cameron at.8 p. m.   before  a few wedding guests which had to be  limited  to the more intimate friends  of the contracting parties   and took  place under a large bell of syrmga in  full bloom.    The bride was attired  in  a handsome gown of embroidered silk  net over Japanese silk.     She was followed by Miss Avoriia Jones as dower  girl  bearing a  bouquet of roses and  was given awav by her  brother.   The  wedding   presents    were    numerous,  beautiful and  valuable   and >attested  the kindly good-will   of, the   donors-  towards the bride and groom, an asset*  which is appreciated above all others.  After the cerecony was over a dainty  supper of served  and  the remaining  part of the evening pleasantly spent-  before the  wedding guests took their  departure.  dHjg,, THE HEDLEY GAZETTE.

I    OUTCLASS  CANADA'S TURN  (Toronto World.)  The rernarkabla growth  of the eastern cities of the United States,  which'  set in  forty to  twenty-five years ago,,  of New York,  Boston,  Philadelphia,  Buffalo, Chicago  and then Cleveland  and    a score   of " other   places, --.was.  primarily due to the opening up of the  western st jti-si.f Ohio, Indiana, Michigan,   arid  later on  of  Illinois,   Iowa,  "Wisconsin,. Dakota, Kansas; etc.   As!  these   new  states were settled by the'  thousands' and .thousands of new sett-5  lers that rushed  into  them,   millions  and  millions of  dollars   c:nne   fmrii  them  to the eastern citrus 'for-'goods,  and a little  later oh million.- and millions  more  every year in the  way of'  interest   on,   eastern, investments in  these, western states.    Millions flowed  from the.  west to  these ������������������,������������������.������tern  cities  and  towns,  and  they   all   grew  like  riiagic.  The same thing is now coming to  Canada: Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, even the territories, are now sending millions of  dollars each year to Toronto arid other  Ontario cities and towns for manufactures, for goods, arid also as interest on investments: so are they to  Montreal and places east of Ontario.  And this liow from the west is hound  to grow and to add to the greatness of  cities like Toronto.  The* people of the United States from  their experience,, know the value of  such a flow of dollars from the abundant west, and they would like to see  the Canadian stream diverted to the  south and south east.  But our business is to keep our lines  of trade full east and west, to improve  our railway lines between our east  and the 'west and to keep our own  trade for our own people.

When it is considered that every  tree and plant passing through the  inspecting station is individually inspected one can form some idea of  the vast amount of care.'and labor  which this inspection entails.. No  other country in the world possesses  such a perfect system of nursery stock  inspection, and the fact that in the  whole of the great Okanagan,.

FRUIT CROP  >���������     " - '   <������������������  Promise of Immense Crops But Labor  Very Scarce Throughout Province  This is the first year that British  Columbia will have exported any large  amount of fruit.   The Okanagan alone  it is estimated,   will ship -500 ears of  fruit to  the  prairies.     W. E. Scott,  deputy minister of agriculture, says it  is difficult to estimate what the whole  output of the  province will be, but he  expects that they will ship at least  1,200carloads, or overa million pounds.  Prices will  rule low this year.   The  crop   is very   heavy   in   every   line,  prunes,  pears,  cherries and early apples being especially plentiful.     Ff the  weather should prove dry during the  next two months Mr. Scott is of opinion that there will be some small fruit  where the orchards are not properly  cultivated,  but where   cultivation  is  carried on the fruit should be unusually heavy.    One difficulty at present is  that labor is so  scarce that growers  are not thinning their fruit properly.  The result will be a large quantity of  small fruit,  instead of the finer grade,  which demands higher prices.  The outlook on the islands of the  Gulf as well as on Vancouver Island is  splendid. All the trees are laden to  the limit, and the growers should  make money if they can secure the  necessary labor to save the fruit while  it is good. Labor is at present the  great difficulty. In some districts it  is impossible to get men at any price.  Strawberries are now selling at ten  cents a pound and immense quantities  are being consumed.

The impor-,  tahcei of this fact to the intendmgsett-  ler can hardly be (.estimated , indollars  and cents.  To ji representative of the-Province  Mr. Cunningham stated, *  ���������'If we keep bri planting at the'rate  at which it is now progressing we  shall soon need every acre of arable  land jn -British Columbia for orchard  purposes. .   .. - r.  -   .   .'  Asked if lie did not think .there'was>  some" danger of the business being  overdone, his reply was characteristic. ; ...  "No we shall. not overtake the market in twenty years.                  '������������������     '  "During the year 1909 we imported  into the city of Vancouver 11.3,163  boxes of apples, pears, ^peaches, apricots, quinces and plurns, everyApo)ind  of which could have been grown in  the province. To talk of overdoing,  the business in the face of this record  is an absurdity that should never he  mentioned.  "What are  the  prospects   for the  fruit crop this   season?" was" asked  "Very good indeed,  we expect to ship  a. thousand cars of fruit out of the province this year; indeed  thereiii ay be  more, and I expect a brisk demand  owing in part to destructive storms in  the great Mississippi Valley last April.  The extent of the damage done to the  fruit crop may be gauged by the report of the Horticultural Department  of the State of Iowa recently issued,  which shows the following averages  of a normal crop;  Peaches, less than 1 per cent. .  Pears, less than 1 per cent.  European  varieties   of plums,  less  than 1 per cent,  Currants and gooseberries,  no crop.  Cherries four per cent.  Apples, 3 per cent.  American plums, 3 per cent.  Strawberries, 30 per cent.  Raspberries, 30 per cent.  "This deficiency will lie made cood  by shipments from California, Oregon,  Washington and the Southern States,  and will have a marked effect on the  demand for fruit in   the  Northwest  provinces.  "The prospects were never better,  but we must be careful ro keep up the  quality of our goods and the packing  must be neat and honestly done; nothing else will win; nothing else should  succeed."
