In referring   last week to, the handsome" appropriation   secured  by Mr.  Shatford for  his  riding it now transpires from word received direct from  Victoria that only a part of the story  was; told.     The news"to hand is to the  effect that the bridge" vote for the riding is $24,000 which added to the othex'  votes places  the ��������� total for the riding  this year at over $170,000.   This sp.len'  did appropriation  at  the disposal of  the road supervisor H. A. Turner who  will see that  value is  received therefor, the highways irr the .Similkameen  should he put in good shape.  .

The  ''American" quotes Lord Lansdowne's  warning against the development of  Canada on continental, rather than  I Imperial lines, and points out that  Lord Lansdowane's party is trying to  draw Canadian Commerce to the Mother Country. The fact that this proj  test is made convinces the "American"  that Congress . should immediately  ratify "the momentous trade compact  with Canada."  The "American" does not say that  the treaty is a step towards polrtical  union. It only says -'that reciprocity  will prevent the closer drawing of  Canada towards the Mother Country;  that it smashes the scheme of a close-  knit British federation; that it thus  settles a world 'problem; that il finally  disentangles this continent from Euro-   _.-.-       .... ��������� -  renie Court of Canada against the Redeemable Investment Co., of Boston,  the sum named in the suit being placed  at $1,500,000.00  The Kingston Co. sold a controlling-  interest in the Kingston arid other  claims of the group" in Camp Hedley  to the Redeemable' In vestment'".

Write me about your claims  Every district has its own little history of some particular crime or  crimes that have never been brought  to justice and that furnish food for  wonder and conjecture at the firesides  for many years after.  Among those for this district are the  Zimmerman murder at Penticton four  vears ago and the killing of Thoniet  at Midway  three years ago,   Regarding the former little progress seems to  have been  made in the way of fastening the guilt upon   the perpetrators  but there seems to be very little doubt  in the  minds of  the authorities  that  the miscreants who  killed Thomet are  now in  the  toils,   but unfortunately  they  are  rrot  being held on  the one  crime which would have put the hemp  around their necks.  Chief Bunbury who has conferred a  great deal with the police on the  American side had very strong evidence to show that a band of train  robbers who were apprehended near  Omaha and given life sentences had  among their number the two who  killed Thoniet. So strong was this  evidence that it was submitted to the  American authorities  with a view to  MONSTER DRYDOCK FOR B. C.  Capable of Accommodating The Largest  Dreadnought Afloat  At a cost of $3,000,000 a drydock  subsidized  by the Dominion government  is  to   be  constructed at Esqur-  rnalt   primarily   for   the   purpose   of  building new vessels for the Canadian  navy.     To  enlarge  the   shipbuilding  plant on   the coast necessary for the  undertaking of such a large enterprise  a well known shipbuilding firm   will  absorb the  British Columbia  Marine  Railway Company Limited and a first  rate shipbuilding industry will  be established at Esquimalt.    The new dry-  dock will be 900 feet long and 100 feet  in width and will be capable of taking  care of the largest vessels afloat.   The  location   on Esqiiima.lt  harbor, is now  being selected.  harm they may do  Meanwhile it is bilious on the camp  that a property, like the Kingston  should be tied up awaiting the action  of the courts of a foreign country ; so  it is evidently with a view to bringing  the matter to a. head that the old  company are seeking the assistance of  the Canadian courts to establish their  rights to their own property by moving to have the sale set aside on the  ground of fraud.  ROUGH ON RANGE HORSES  Danny McLaughlin   came  in  from  WINNIPEG AGAINST  Board of Trade  Passes   Condemnatory  Resolution re. Reciprocty  Winnipeg, Feb.  22.���������The Winnipeg  board  of trade   by 6������ to 13,   terr members'refraining from voting,   passed a  resolution today condemning the reciprocity   agreement   between   Canada  and the United States,   the mover be  ing W. H.   Cross and the seconder D.  C. Cameron,  Liberal candidate in the  last   general   election   in    Winnipeg.  The resolution is as follows:  "That the Winnipeg boiud of trade  after careful consideration of the proposed reciprocity agreement between  the Dominion of Canada and the United States, is firmly of the opinion that  i. 1- * -  of the line  will  be in operation on  month later. , Grading is well ad van  edall along the  line and   when tin  laying is resumed it will be clearsai.-  With the  thirty-mile sectioii finished work will be immediately inaugurated on  the second section which will  likely cover twenty miles.   This contract is  in the hands .of Mncdonald &  Gzowski, and the sub-contracts will be  let about the middle of the year.  With the construction of a short line  it would  be  possible for Merritt and  Nicola valley   to have a short route to  the boundary districts even before the  Kettle Valley is completed from end  to end.    The  V. V. Si E. is finished to  a point almost within striking distance  of the Kettle Valley in the vicinity of  the .summit.     Engineers  working on  the second section of the Kettle Valley  will have the line finally located about  the end of May.

We have  pleasure in calling atten  tion to the  excellent speach delivered  last  week  in the Legislature  by Mr.  L. W. Shntford.    The constituency of  Similkameen   has good cause to  con-  Igratulate  itself upon   being represented   by such  a capable and  energetic  member,  and the estimates this year  amply  demonstrate the  fact that Mr.  Shatford has once more   succeeded in  having  the  requirements  of   his   important district  well   attended   to   in  the matter of expenditures for puhlic  works.     Tho   large   appropriation   of  $132,000 has   been granted   to Similkameen,   and   Mr.   Shatford   has proved  in  former  years   that he   may   be   de- ���������  pendfd upon to see that it is expended j  to the best possible advantage.

C.   fruit-  giowers-would   not   suffer   as   badly  from   cutting  oil' the.  duty on  American fruit as it was feared.     Even Hon.  William   Patterson who   is largely responsible  for the   enormity,   notwithstanding  the fact   that the   duty  protecting hi.-, biscuits is not   to be altered  a whit,  -was  supplied   with a   copy of  the    Sinninerland    Review   and   re-id  from it, an editorial  favoiing reciprocity which   he pointed out was from a  conservative paper published in a fruit  growing  di.-trict.    lie   made   no mention   of the   editorial   opinions  of  the  Kelowna Courier  which are the views  -of a strong Liberal and the paper published   in a   district  which   has  made  quite as great a name for itself in fruitgrowing as Siiiniiierland.  The review has never claimed, nor  shown it.-elf, to be as strong in its  support of the Conservative party as  the Courier has been of the Liberal  party. Neither were there any reasons advanced by the Review further  than a mere expression of opinion  that the change would benefit the  fruit-growing industry here more than  it would injure it. Opinions are cheap  when we all have them, and they do  not necessarily clfecb the situation one  way or the other, neither should they  always rank as evidence.  Now it is only surmise on our part,  hub if Col. CarlAvright, of Suininer-  lanil. son of Sir Richard, is at the elbow of the Review editor it- is not to  be wondered at that we find those  particular leanings on the subject of  reciprocity.

The tangle is still untangled.���������-Oroville Gazette. . >���������  Hedley has had the longest spell of  sleighing this winter on> the least  . amount of snow that has yet been experienced irr the history of the place.  The average amount of snow on the  ground for any single week between  Christmas and the end of February,  would scarcely exceed four inches and  yet there has been fairly good sleighing all that time. This will give a fair-  idea of how steady the winter has  cbeen, and yet with the, exception of  one week it could not he called cold.  The sparl'Iing musical comedy,  "Managing Mildred" is announced as  the attraction at Fraternity lui.il on  Saturday, March 4th. The famous  English Opera Singers who made such  an impression through the west last  season aro figured' in this comedy and  will introduce the last two scenes of  Verdi's "XI Trovatore" in costume.  -The remarkable duet "The miserere"  TtJTBung by Juanita Rush and Charles  Picquet has invariably been encored  five or six times. "Managing Mildred"  is by Walter Lockwood, a young Chicago author and contains some twenty  song hits.  An asti'onimer is reported to have  prophesied three wet years because of  certain sun spots that in the past have  always been attended with much precipitation. The prairie wheat growers  will make no objections to a meteorological programme of that nature, and  it would also fit in nicely with the.  plans of the management here for getting the water-supply obtainable from  Twenty-mile Lake, back to the normal.  They're all scrappin' for Moirday.  The Star announces that "Managing  Mildred" is to be in Princeton, Monday, March Oth. The Gazette erroneously but with the best intentions  ���������said they were to be in Hedley Monday March Gth. The Penticton Herald says they are to he in Penticton  .Monday, March 2nd. The advance  agent, the auxiliary, the Gazette and  the Herald must all have got hold of  the same kind of booze. Meanwhile  Princeton is sitting tight on the date  and looks very likely to hold it.  There is a general impression that  we are in for an early spring and that  the cold snap at the beginning of the  present, week was winter's final effort.  There was a. new moon two days ago  and some give; the moon credit for all  kinds of stunts in the matter of its  ability to boss the weather. By the  by. this particular moon is the one  which is known to the natives as "the  moon of pussy willows," and that  sounds quite springy in itself.  The  skating  in  Hedley during the  past two weeks has been excellent the  snow   having been   cleared off a space  ���������about  100 yards  long and  fifty   feet  wide,   on the  ice of the .Similkameen  liver  behind   Pinto's   House,     Every  night  in the  week the  ice was   taken  advantage of by dozens of skaters old  and young,   a big /ire   being   built  on  the ice  alongside where the snow had  nob been   cleared oil'and  this supplied  both the illumination aud the warmth  for  the   non-skaters.     A  situation of  that  kind   beats  a,  closed   rink   all to  pieces as the participants have the full  advantage of pure fresh air during the  whole  outing,   but of  course it  i.s not  ever)'   winter   the   conditions   a.re   as  favorable as this one.     To Mr. Hincks  most of the  credit is due for nosing  out  the  possibilities  of the situation  I'di' sport and clearing oil' the snow.  people of Iveremeos have had various  opportunities of hearing Mis. Brown  siiig, those in Hedley have not been  so fortunate and would-be pleased to  have tiie opportunity of enjoying as  much of her singing as an event of  that kind would give them.  Ctiltus Harry (halfbreed) was iii  town on Saturday .with a couple of  heads and the, claws of two golden-  , headed eagles upon -which he wanted  the bounty. According to regulations,  for collection of the bounty on these  birds the claws- have to be sent 'for  identification to the provincial game  warden,'"-Bryan Williams, at Vancouver and Harry's/ exhibits were accordingly detpatcbed thither. Local jusr  tices can be trusted with the identification of cougars, coyotes and big  horned owls but their knowledge of  ���������zoology.-.or natural history is scarcely  equal to the task of spotting out the  golden-headed* eagle, and lest they  should mistake the panties of a thoroughbred shanghai or yellow leghorn  rooster for a golden headed member  of that particular species of Uncle  Sam's nii-ds the precaution aforesaid  was necessary. Sorry it couldn't be  helped, but Harry will have to stay  dry for that in uch longer.  The Gazette  was in error   last week  in   placing the   date   of   ''Managing  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada  Money invested in Hedley Town Property now will bring you Big  Returns in a Few Months  Buy Now; Don't Put It Off as the Price is Going Up.

They are to be in Princeton on that date and  their performance here will he  on Saturday March  4th.    In giving Monday March o'th as  the date the Gazette was hot altogether to blame.    Every effort was made  to  have the dace  verified  before announcing  it but  we   could   find   out  nothing definite in the matter and the  Ladies' Auxiliary  muter whose auspices  they were to  play could give no  assistance,  for    their    contract   read  March 5th  and as  that date falls  on  Sunday-it  was quite clear  that a mistake had  been made.    The  most "natural inference under the circumstance  was    to   conclude  that   the   advance  agent in  fixing his dates had failed to  notice  that the 5th was Sunday and  skip a date.     After we found out that  Princeton   was counting  on   Monday  March  6th as  their date   inquiry was  made, of Penticton where it was found  the Company were billed for Thursday  ��������� March 2nd which left littlo doubt that  Saturday was the  date,  intended for  Hedley, the intervening time between  midnight on Thursday aud Saturday  morning being little   enough to cover  the distance between  Penticton  and  Hedley with  perhaps an   intervening  performance at Keremeos on Friday  night en route.

Next to  growing the best  and highest grade of apples it i.s necessary that  they   be. packed  and marketed   in  the  most   attractive style.     It  is conceded  that   the quality   of  Siniilknineen  apples are  second to   none in   the  world  and if only remains for the fruit-growers of this district to put their produce  on the   market in   proper shape   to secure   the   very   highest market  price.  Iu   this  connection   the   value  of the  course in packing   conducted here last  week by  the local   government under  the supervision of Mr. Flack will prove  of  inestimable   benefit  when   put   to  practical utility by our growers.

Thorough master  of his subject,   untiring   in    his efforts  and obliging  in his  manner,   he  kept  up   the   interest  of his  pupils  to   the  very    last    and     imparted    sufficient  knowledge  in  the.  art  of packing  to  those  under  him   to enable  them  to  proceed  intelligently  with   the  work  when occasion arrives.

X  FRANK  RIGHTER & CO.  Mrs. Lead beater and daughter were  visitors in Hedley between trains' on  Monday, to-morrow (Wednesday) they  expect to leave for their home in Alberta. They have been visiting Mrs.  Leadbeater's parents, Mr. and Mrs.  John Mattice.  W. A. McLean, who recently returned from accompanying his daughter', Mrs. Gillespie of Hedley,. to California, and is now going back to the  Okanagan to resume work on a contract he has three, spent the latter  part of last week in town.  H. C. N. Etches, of Salmon Arm,  who was with the. survey party working up the Ashnola last fall, and has  since been spending the winter at various places in B. C. and Alberta, ar-,  rived back here on Saturday. Before  leaving Ire intends making a trip up  the Ashnola.  Mr. C. Tickell, brother of George  Tickell of this place, arrived in Keremeos on Saturday, direct from Cumberland, England. Mr. Tickell says  that the winter in the Old Country  has been exceptionally wet and disagreeable. The trip over was made in  exactly two weeks.  Ching Kee entertained his friends  at his annual dinner at the Central  Hotel on Thursday evening last.  Written invitations were sent out and  a very large number responded. Both  in the elaborate dinner that was served in the spacious dining room of the  Central and in the exhibition of fireworks which followed the host spared  no trouble or expense in giving his  friends a jolly good time. So effective  was it that it called forth an after-  dinner speech from "J. J." complimentary to Ching as arr entertainer and to  the appetites which most of the guests  brought along with them. An impromptu dance in Richters' Hall  brought a verj* pleasant evening to a  close just about midnight.  J. A.
