Taking  ml vantage   of the glorious  weather, quite a number of visitors  from Hedley were iu town on Sunday.  Incidentally,  they   witnessed a very  exciting   baseball game between  the  Hedley   aud   Keremeos   teams.     No  doubt a thorough and technical description of the game will be found in  another column, as the reporter was a  "Bird."   The score, 16 to 25 in favor of  Hedley, is no criterion of the game, as  the native modesty of the Keremeos  boys prevented their scoring in   the  iirst two innings,  and  this  gave   the  Hedley boys, who are noted more for  their native  calves   than    the   other  commodity, a lead of 1-! runs.    When  Hedley went to bat in the third inning  the   Keremeos   boys   yielded   to   the  solicitations of their rooter and began  to play ball, putting Hedley out with  only two runs.    In their third inning  Keremeos began to score, and it was  now discovered by���������a gentleman on the  benches that Hedlev's pitcher had a.  glass arm.    From  this  on   the game  was   exciting,   as   for   three    innings  Hedley   never   reached   third    base.  In the meantime Keremeos was scoring steadily.    Mr. Riddle, the umpire,  did   what  he  could to cheer up  the  visitors.    When  the Keremeos  team  acquires a little of the assurance at  present monopolized by their rooters'  they will play a haul game.     It is  rumored" that   the   artist   with    the  pencil had fainting spells when Keremeos /was at the bat.   Altogether, a  most enjoyable day was spent,   and  we hope to see the Hedleyites down  again in the near future.  -James J. Hill's declaration that there  was no intention on the part of himself and his associates to publicly offer  securities to cover the cost of the railway lines which he is building in Canada, and that the cost would be covered  by direct subscription to the company's  stock by himself and his friends, drew  Wall Street's attention to- the character of Mr Hill's' following.  It is regarded as a most unusual event  in the financial world that the building  of 1300 miles of railway, costing necessarily a great many millions should be  financed without any public requests  for subscriptions or securities..  It has long been recognized, however  that Mr. Hill has a following which  not only is possessed of very great  wealth, but has at the same time unlimited confidence in Mr! Hill's ability  as a railway manager. .  Some indication of the individual  wealth of Mr Hill and some of his associates is found in the list of stockholdings in Northern Securities company, published at the time of the reduction in that company's capital from  $392,400,000 to its present capitalization of' $3,95-1,000. These, were some  of the larger stockholders of that company and the amount oi.' their stock  taken at par: 1, >   ,  Jaines J.

Reports of a shortage; in the strawberry vield come in from fruitgrowers  in this part of the valley.    The heavy  rains encouraged growth but did not  help the fruit to ripen, with the result  that much of it rotted on the plants.  No   strawberries have   been   on   the  market in Hedley thus far this season.  A   few days more of hot weather  should make the water in the .Similkameen river warm enough for bathing.  Several large rocks have been blasted  out of the channel at the point down  from  Pinto's flat which was used  in  former   years   for   a   bathing   place,  which should make it even bettor this  year.  This week a coyote, which was promenading the flume was out of luck.  The watchman came along when the  coyote was at the point where, the  flume enters a tunnel on a perpendicular bluff of rock. In trying to escape  it tried to clamber up the face of the  rock above tho flume but fell back into  the. water, for the flume was open at  this point, and the current swept it  under the board covering lower down.  Next day the carcass was fished out  of the water at the grating where the  pipe line takes the water from the  flume.  The thirty-fifth communication of  the Masonic Grand Lodge of British  Columbia was held in Victoria on the  21st and 22nd inst. This was one of  the most interesting and successful  meetings that the Grand Lodge has'  held in the province, nearly every  lodge iii the province being represent-'  ed.  The various reports submitted  gave evidence that the Grand Lodge  and the various subordinate lodges in  its jurisdiction were in a flourishing  condition.  At this meeting  two   new   lodges,  Atlin  and Hedley were adjudged to j  have completed satisfactorily the pro- j  bationary period of their history  and  were granted their charters.  The visiting Masons were one and  all loud in their praises of the hospitable treatment received at the. hands  of the Masons of Victoria who spared  no pains to make the visit a most enjoyable one. For this purpose special  cars of the B. 0. Electric Railway  Company, conveyed the party to Es-  quimalt where the dry-dock and navy  yards were, visited, and afterwards to  Oak Bay and the Gorge. At the last  mentioned place with its beautiful recreation grounds a band concert was  in progress.  It   was  decided   to   hold   the  next  The fruit growers in the vicinitv of  Keremeos have formed an organization to be known as the Similkameen  Fruit Growers Association. Frank  Richter, who has one of the finest orchards in Canada was elected president, as a slight recognition of the  valuable service he has rendered this  part of the country, by practically  demonstrating that the choicest kinds  of fruits can be grown here.  J. J. Armstrong was elected vice  president, the people tealizing that  the Keremeos Land Co., through Mr.  Armstrong, their efficient and courteous general manager, had transformed what was formerly a great  barren tiact of bench and bottom land  into one of the most promising fruit  producing section on the continent of  America, and which will ultimately be  the homes of thousands of prosperous  and contented people.  In the spring of 1905 about 2500 fruit  trees were set out out.   They made  very satisfactory progress last summer  and are making  tremendous growth  this summer.    Last spring (1906) about  1100 fruit and nut  trees  were  planted  which are. making a splendid showing.  Those who have purchased land from  the above company are jubilant over  the future" prospects.    The fruit trees  are showing an extraordinary disposition to fruit early. A number of cheiry  trees put out in the spring of 1905 being. Full p{ fruit, while the older cherry  trees, notably in the orchards of Messrs  Richter. Armstrong and  Barcello are  'loaded with   as  fine fruit   as can be  grown anywhere   The early kinds are  done, the first being ripe on May 28th.  . All other kinds of trees, apple, pear,  peach, plum, apricot,   and prune are  making- such a fine showing   that a  person would naturally think that he  had   struck   a veritable   "Garden of  Eden." ' The other crops grown here,  .\yheat,  oats,   hay,   potatoes   and   all  kinds of roots and vegetables are looking as well as  it   is possible  to have  them at this season of the year.    Alfalfa is cut and in stack.    Early  potatoes, peas, carrots, beets and cabbage  are fit to use.  The following, all directly engaged  in fruit and vegetable growing, were  elected a Board of Directors;���������Rev. A.  H. Cameron, Richard Elmhurst, Geo.  Kirby, John Mattice, J. C. Woodrow.  J. D. Hunt and   J. R. Shaw.  The Association starts with a membership of 25, and bids fair to become  one of the most useful organizations  in the-province, The principal objects  of the Association are: To get all the  latest information relative to fruitgrowing, such as, best kinds to plant;  best system of cultiyation; the preven-  BASEBALL MATCH.  Return Game   Played  at Keremeos   on  Sunday.���������Another Win for Hedley.  The Hedley baseball team journeyed  to Keremeos on Sunday to return the  visit of that team here the week before, and succeeded in bringing home  the honors. Out of five games played  this season, this makes four wins and  one loss.  As in the game played here, Hedlev  took a lead in the first three innings  which practically cinched the game.  The personnel of both teams was  changed somewhat, some of Hedley's  regular men not being able to get  away, and Keremeos playing men  who were unable to accompany them  on their visit here. Ed. Richter starj*-.  ed the pitching for Keremeos, but his  straight speedy ball seemed easy"for  the Hedley batters, and after the  fourth inning he was replaced by Daly,"  who,finished the game and managed  to keep the scoring down. Messenger  pitched the whole game through for  Hedley-and was always steady and  sure. Turner caught a splendid game  for Keremeos, throwing well to the  bases, and his batting brought in most  of their runs. Keremeos made one  double play, Bailey to Lowe. Both  teams wore strong at the bat, and  two-base hits wore numerous, while  Cootes, for Hedley made three bases  on a long drive; to right field.  Quite a large crowd of spectators  witnessed the game, and good plays  were rewarded with deserving applause.  The Hedley boys enjoyed the hospitality of Mr. Kirby, at the Keremeos  Hotel, and greatly appreciate the  treatment given them by the Keremeos boys.  Mr. Riddle umpired the game and  gave general satisfaction. The final  score was 25 to 16 in Hedley's favor.  Tho teams were as follows :  KEsemeos���������Turner, E.  Richter, T.  Daly,"\V. Lowe", C. Bailey, YV. McLeod,  C. W. Slatter,   W. Daly, S. McCurdy,  H. Richter.  Hedlev���������Watson, Messenger, Henderson, Irwin. Brule, Cootes, Revely.  Rotherham and Nelson.  It was decided not to act on the  proposal to combine the two teams  and compete in the baseball tournament at Loornis on July 4th.  The Night Hawk team is expected  to play in Keremeos in a week or two-  and an effort is being made to have-  Hedley meet them while they are up  this way; either to have them come  up  here,  or the Hedley team go to  Keremeos.  ���������. _������>.

The building in the rear of John  Love's old drug store, formerly used  by Mr. Clark as a jewelry store, and  which is now used as sleeping quarters  by a couple ot young men, had a narrow escape from destruction by fire  last Friday night. A candle bad been  left burning in the room, and this fell  from its holder, setting fire to the bed  clothes. Fortunately the blaze was  noticed from the rear of Rotherham's  tobacco store and was extinguished  before much damage had been done.  (Minncupolis .Inurniil.)  Sir Thomas Shaughnessy has stirred  the   strong   national   feeling   of   our  northern neighbors with his rallying  crv "Canada for the Canadians."   His  pronouncement at the Quebec banquet  was notice to James J.   Hill  that his  progress across the boundary  will be  opposed by all the political and commercial influence the Canadian Pacific  can  muster.     As   a   loyal  Canadian,  born   and bred in Milwaukee,  Wis.,  Sir  Thomas   is  determined   that  no  Yankee railway king shall dominate  Western Canada.   Sir   William Van  Home,    another   staunch    Britisher,  from Will county, Illinois, is doubtless  of the same opinion.    Canada must be  saved for the Canadians.  It must be admitted that Mr. Hill  started in the world all right. He was  born under the Union Jack at Guelph,  Ontario, hut he foreswore the Queen  and his chances of knighthood and  became an ordinary, plebian railroad  president south of the line. Had he  remained a loyal Canadian he might  have been Sir James Hill by this time,  or even Marquis of Winnipeg. He  threw away his opportunities when he  headed for St. Paul, aud it is too late  for him to return. Canada must be  preserved for the Canadians.  The C. P. R. have  been delayed in  the construction of their new steamer  on   Okanagan   Lake   because   of  the  difficulty in obtaining material. Early  in the season the  principal  difficulty  feared  was  that of  getting   a   large  enough gang of ship carpenters,   but  since  the San Francisco disaster the  coast mills are  kept  busy supplying  the  wants  of contractors at 'Frisco,  and   are   compelling   others  to  wait.  Meanwhile the lake trade is increasing  at such a rate  that in a. few  weeks  more the steamers York and Aberdeen'  will be altogether unable to cope with  it.    All this season the York has been  handling most of the freight on barges,  leaving the Aberdeen to take care, of  the express, baggage and passengers.  At   Okanagan   Landing   two  more  barges are being built and also more  dock room  is being provided,  which  will   enable   the   freight   cars   to   be  placed alongside the boats and barges  and thus lighten the work of loading  and unloading.    In a few weeks more  the fruit season will be in full swing,  every dock along the lake furnishing  its quota.    Thus, with the numerous  calls and the large volume of produce  to be handled, late arrivals will be the  order of the dav.  Track-Laying on V.,  V. & E.

The question is asked as to  whether or not it is the intention of Premier.McBride to ask  the Lieutenant Governor for a.  dissolution* during  the  present  year, and also as to 'whether it  is not tiie intention to drop the  chief commissioner from the  government. We are not called  upon to speak for the premier  on questions regarding which  he is fully competent' and, no  doubt prepared to speak for  himself. lie is the mouth-piece  of the government.  We, however have no hesitation in affirming our own belief. If it be any satisfaction to  know our mind, there is no human probability of the premier  asking for a dissolution before  the expiry of the term of the.  present parliament. Nor, so  far as wo can see. is there any  reason for bringing on general;  elections. The country is well-  satisfied with the condition of  affairs politically, and only a  few professional politicians with  visions of office are worrying  about the matter.  We may also state that there  are 110 grounds for the supposition that the chief commission  er  of lands and works has  not  the entire confidence of his colleagues.    He has been the  .subject of a. great <.k-*u   of  persecution.    It is a homely old raying  that the good appit? trees in  an ;  orchard may be told by tiie nmii- j  her of sticks  and  stones   lying  underneath.    The bitter attack  being made upon Mi*.  Green  is  a tribute to his merits as a member and administrator.  Wo have 110 hesitation in expressing the fullest confidence  in the honesty and honorable  dealing of the chief commissioner both in public and private  life. We believe that the department of lands and works is  being administorcd strictly according to the Jaw, without fear  or favor. We believe that every  person who lias business with  the department is getting a  "square deal."  If we did not believe that to  be true, we would not support  the government. Those who  have an opposite opinion, or  are anxious to prove the opposite, have an opportunity to  make their position good by  any  facts within  their  know-  eral impression that  ment owned railways should  carry everything free." The  trouble seems to be that the  Whitney government will not  show favors and it has had. the  effect of giving some of the!  Conservatives in that new coun-1  try cold chills to think there is  no business advantages to be  ,hail by being a supporter of the  .government. They have not  realized yet that the i:ailway  Avas built as a business .proposition for the whole people, and  not for jiolitical favorites. A  liiinister in charge of a department having.extensive relations  with the public is likely to earn  the dislike of politicians if he  hews straight to the line. A  man is not alvyays popular with  his own pai'ty who refuses to be  influenced by political considerations in dealing with public  triists: Unpopularity is often a  certificate of merit.���������Colonist  -K7OTU-10 IS' .J-IERTCBY GIVEN that sixty  > J .dayst after date r intend to apply to the  Chief Comini'-sionev of .Lands and works for  permission to purchase eighty acres of land for  range purposes as follows : Commencing at the  northwest corner of section thirty, township  50 in the Osoyoos Division of Yale District,  (Similkainecn Laiui .RecordingDistrict); thence  east 10 ehains; thence south 2(1 chains; thence  west 10 ehains : thence north 20 chains.

The long fight in England for  legalization of marriage with  the  NOTICE.  deceased wife's sister appears at last to have been won,  and without any sensational  feature. In the house of lords  the bill has heretofore been  killed session after session, but  now the lords quietly vote for  the bill on its third reading.  As marriage with a deceased  wife's'sister has long been recognized as legal in Canada and  other colonies of the empire, it  has seemed unjust for the mother* country to put it under  the ban. The final settlement  of the question will remove a  source of long pending dissatisfaction.���������Ex  The exoneration of Ernest  Denicte from blame for the killing of a looter during the time  of the San Francisco hre, seems  under the circumstances, to be  entirely proper. The judge was  right, according to the evidence  in saying that the young man  merely did his duty. If some  of the stories oL! shooting at San.  Francisco are true, there were  cases in which wanton and unjustifiable killing was done, but  this was not one of them.

We are advised  that the provincial police, year after  year have issued warnings that the  weeds must be cut down, but with unsatisfactory results so far, and sterner  methods will now be adopted. Under  the Noxious Weeds Act, any owner,  lessee'or occupier failing to destroy all  Canadian thistles on his land within  fourteen days after being notified so  to do by a constable, justice of the  peace or other proper official, becomes  liable to a penalty, on conviction, of  $20. Farmers, for their own interests,  should-not wait until the warning is  received, but take prompt action to  rid .their hind of the weeds.��������� Ex.  Mr. F. P.

A game of baseball of exceptional  interest, as well as being possessed  of considerable originality, was played  between the ladies and a mixed lot of  gentlemen, one evening during the past  week. One of the restrictions placed  upon those of the sterner sex-was that  they were required to play only with  their left hands. The many ludicrous  inanu'uvri's gone throiu/h with in their  efforts to get the ball where desired  under so potent an incumbrance may  be more easily imagined than described  and it is not surprising that much  mirth was provoked both among the  players and spectators.

" The electric, light plant at Trail, B.C.,  owned by the Consolidated Mining  and Development Co., was completely  destroyed by fire on .rune 12th.

Ii. freight sheds at Kelowna.  had a. narrow escape from destruction  by fire recently. Hay and lime had  been piled  together,  and  rain   water  dripping from the eave-trough slaked  the lime, setting fire to the hay. The  building was saved by the prompt  action of the volunteer fire department.  The grading operations on the V.V.,  Si E. have revealed the. presence of  mineral, says the Midway Star.

The  preparations for the beginning of operations at the smelter have been under  way for two weeks, but the works  could not be said to be definitely in  complete operation until Sunday, when  the running off of the metal actually  commenced.
