"VV'b not only have closed lip our  deal with the Hodgen Brothers of  Butte and New York for the 80 percent of the capital stock of the/Hidden  Creek Mining Co., which we had under bond from thein, but we also have  arranged to .purchase the remaining  20 per cent of the stock from Mr. Rodgers, who originally -interested them  in the property", said J. P. Graves,  vice-president of the Granby Consolidated'Mining, Smelting and Power Co.  at his office in,the .Terminal' building  yesterday shortly after his arrival  from New York.      .  "This latter purchase will give the  Granby Co. complete possession of the  entire assets of the 'Hidden Creek Co.,  so we propose to disincorporate the  latter and turn all of its property over  to the Granby company as soon as.  possible."  Acquisition of tliis mine will mean  considerable for Granby Co. for it will  add from 0,000,000 to 12,000,000 tons  of ore.averaging.2% copper, running  as high as 15% in copper, and gold and  silver values as -high as 00 cents a ton.

Borden, the leader of the  opposition,   is meeting with a cordial  reception   on   his  tour of  the prairie  provinces  accompanied by several of  his lieutenants  from  the  east.     The  meetings   iu  Winnipeg, .Brandon  and  elsewhere  have  been most successful  and attended   with a degree; of enthusiasm quite  unexpected in view of the  belief that the west was more strongly  in favor of reciprocity  than any other  part  of the  Dominion.    The greatest  surprise of all was the effect which the  meeting with the Graingrowers Association   and   the   plain  answer   given  thorn by the Conservative leader, seems  to  have prod need.     Borden   did   not  mince words with them hut told theiu  straight   that   they  need  not  look to  him for any support to reciprocity as  he was strongly opposed to it. Strange  to say,   the  graingrowers themselves  are prepared to give him credit for the  manliness and  candor he displayed.  The Graingrowers Guide even went so  far as to admit that they preferred his  straightforward    pronouncement    on  every  question  submitted  t<>  him to  that  of Sir   Wilfrid and his   flowery  evasions.  News-Advertiser  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has once more  told a, British audience that the. Canadian policy of British preference "has  been hoisted to the top of the mast  and there it will stay." In the same  speech the Premier stated that whatever privileges were granted to other  countries, meaning the Unites States,  ���������'would be given equally to England."  This is an illustration of fine words  that do not mean anything. The British preference is an advantage over-  foreign countries. If the British preference were hoisted at the masthead  it would mean that privileges given to  the United States would not be given  equally to England.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier is professing cme  thing and practicing another. But it  is irot every day that he professes two  contradictory things in the same  speech. Where equal terms are given  to the United States and England, the  Mother country has no preference.  Reciprocity, so far as it goes, destroys  the British preference. It is a policy  contrary to closer commercial relations with Great Britain.  President Taft understands it so  and makes this the chief argument in  its favor. His parting of the ways  speech describes the situation as completely as Sir Wilfrid's top of the  mast statement escapes it.  The directors of the Steamboat  Gold Mines, Limited, that were boosted so  loudly in  Vancouver appear, to  have at last awakened to the fact that  . - ���������  o  they  have  been  too 'credulous.-   The  Nelson News in a despatch from the  coast says:    '.'."������������������<' . c  "For the past two months minors  have been current that there is something amiss with the property..-...Questions began to be asked as to the  whereabouts  of W'. A.  Stevens -.and  Ian Green wait, two men' who brought  the "alleged rich discoveries at Steam-  boae to the attention of the western  mining world and Vancouver investors. Since Mai-ch nothing has been  heard of them, .-although both left  Vancouver after having given the officers of the company plausible reasons for their departure. Their continued absence gave rise to much gossip and it was reported that the property had been "scientifically salted.  It is rumored at Steamboat, at Hope  and on the streets of Vancouver that,  the salting was most elaborately clone  at a cost of between .$500 and $1000.  So far- as known in Vancouver, both  Stevens and Green wait have.clean records. So far as the officers of the  ���������company ������'������re aware Stevens did not  derive any pecuniary benefit from the  sale of the property at Steamboat.  Something over $20,000 ..wiis paid to  Green will b by a Vancouver syndicate  whose members are now shareholders  of the company. -What he did with  the money which was paid before the  arrival of the ore from Steamboat  which gave the famous rich assays, is  unknown."  THE "WITNESS" PROTESTS  That Staunch Old Paper Will Not Indorse Laurier's Separatist Ideas.  HONORING A PIONEER  The reports in the Vernon News  and hlndorby press of the banquet  given in Enderby to Mr. and Mrs. A.  L. Fortune and Mrs. Schubert, mother  of J. A. Schubert, make interesting  reading especially to the earlier residents of the Okanagan who had the  pleasure of the acquaintance of the  pioneers thus honored.  The banquet idea was originated by  Rev, Duncan Campbell, of I'/iiderby  and the time chosen was the -15th anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Fortune's  arrival in the Okanagan where they  were the. first to engage in farming  and market their produce o-.it.sido the  valley. It was in .1802 that these pioneers of what is known as --The Overland Party", about 140 in number,  made their way across the plains and  through the mountains, but it was not  until four years later that Mr. and  Mrs. Fin-'line took up their homestead  at linileiby and a few years later they  were followed by Mr. aud Mrs. Schubert.  Tiie banquet was attended by the  leading men of the Okanagan and  Hon. Price lOllison, Minister of Finance, came up from Victoria, to attend. The News aptly put it in saying that the Okanagan was honoring  itself in honoring these pioneers.  Like a shaft of light across a darkening sky comes the flash of insiirht with  which The Montreal AVitness discerns  the true omen of what it calls Sir-  Wilfrid Laurier's "new declaration of  separation and a refusal to share with  our fellow subjects in Great Britain  the blessings which Great Britain at  their expense has so largely conferred  upon us," at a "crucial moment" of  the Imperial Conference: As the Witness says; "We must either move towards the Empire or away from it.  For Canada any weakening of the  British tie means dependence in another direction."  ft has been'given to the one unreserved free trade daily newspaper in  Canada to discover that something  infinitely greater than free trade is being put to the test. The Mother country offered to consult the dominions  regarding the broad, vital courses of  foreign policy. The Witness fairly  states what happened: "Instead of  hailing this forward step, Sir Wilfrid  repudiated it."  What is that, but moving away  from the Empire? Repudiation is a  strong, an ominous, even an ugly  word. In the mouth of this steadfast  Liberal and free trade paper it is peculiarly significant. Surely we have  reached a condition that may well upset some of our theories, and impose  upon the most reluctant the imperative duly of protest. If Sir Wilfrid  truly reflects the temper of Canada,  we should know it. If he does not.  thero is a tenfold stronger reason for  proving, beyond a pcradventure in  Canada, in Britain and wherever the  King's writ runs, that he ��������� misinterprets the signs of the times, and that  the statesmanship we desire to speak  for us in London is not-of the kind  that chiefly makes excuse.  Unhappily, it- is seldom possible for  objection to be raised against the deliberate action of a.Premier of Canada  without the charge of political partisanship being made against the objection. But Sir Wilfrid's repudiation of  the Imperial Government's offer will  hit many thousands of Canadians in a  place that is far removed from the  seat- of partisanship in Dominion  politics.

HO  TOO MUCH   WARD POLITICS  .lodging from the   comments of British  and  Australian   papers  .Sir Wilfrid Laurier hasimanaged  to scandalize  himself and   Canada throughout  tin;  empire by  his attitude  of opposition to  and aloofness from all propositions which  looked to  cementing  the  ties of Empire.   One of the Australian  papers refers  to  Sir   Wilfrid   as  Sir  Wontfrid.     One redeeming feature of  the situation   from which Canada can  lake a, little  comfort, however, is that  most of these   papers refuse to believe  that-Sir   Wilfrid lepresents   Canadian  sentiment in the grounds lie has taken.  .   An  amusing  feature  of the situation  in   this country  is that a. few of the  the more servile Liberal papers which  will attempt' to discuss the Laurier attitude  at all,   are   indignant    at   any  imputation   -of   questionable   attachment   on   Sir   Wilfrid's   part   to   the  cause of   imperial unity  and they cite  the part played by Canada, in the Boer  war as their greatest argument.     For  their own good thev   would much better   have   bept   that   part  of it in   the  background for the time is not so long  ago that   people should   have,   time to  forget    tin.*   circumstances   attending  that unfortunate incident.    The   first  colonial contingent, to olVi-r for service  in that, war was an Australian cavalry  legimenl-   then   visiting   Knglaud and  when   popular   sentiment   in  Canada  ��������� ���������i.-iinored for the   sending of Canadian  : roups   i'lcniiei-   Laurier  went on   i <���������-  ���������'.'iid   officially as  spying that  il could  led !"��������� done for the constitution would  no!    permit   it.     (An   old   fyle  of   tin:  Toronto   Globe proves this.)     liul. (Jn-  T.-irio   wouldn't   stand for  that  ruling  and a monster indignation inciting in  Alasscy Mall, Toronto, showed Laurier  the advisabili.iy of backing down from  an   niiten-alile   position.    Under those  .-ircuuistances   it  is  a, bit  difficult.,   in  b-ise  a   very   strong   claim   for   much  enthusiasm   in   the   way  of   Imperial  unity.    The secret  cf the whole thing  is that  when   talking in   Kngla.nd   Sir  Wilfrid   unfortunately   for this  country  made it  the  opportunity   to do a,  lir.tl" electioneering  iu Quebec against  Bouiassn.    In  sending him to Britain  on so   important a   mission as   Unit, of  representing  Canada at, the   Imperial  Conference and the Coronation. Canadians  had a right  to expect that   he  would try   to sink the  ward politician  in the  statesman   for-a little   while at  individuals who have found their way  to the   whitehouse and   contrast their  language- and  actions  with   those  of  ! the British   nobility there is cause for  thnnkfulness that there is'such a tiling  as   breeding in the   human  animal as  well  as  in   the shorthorn  or Jersey.'  Even   th������!  best  minds   in   the   United  States to-day protest against the bald-  headed fallacy contained in the declaration  of  independence  that "all  men  are born free and equal'', and yet that  is the   kind of...stuff the   youth  of the  United States aie taught-to'memorize'  and repeat like parrots in the. schools.  It is quite  true  there are  sometimes  degenerates and   blackguards among  nobility:  atavisms  are  known   in  all  types  of animal  life.    The  well-bred  man   whether he   be noble  or peasant  is  never "'so  ignorant as not  to know  when   he is   insulting  other people, of  finer sensibilities  and the lack of that  breeding which always recognizes the  opinions and aims of others, can never  be  glossed  over  by the  possession of  either  wealth or  power.    If the press  of tiie   United  States (and it is fair to.  assume that  they represent the popular notion  over there) cannot refrain  from    exhibiting    their    hatred   .and  scorn for some of our  treasured institutions   while so  momentous a movement as that involved in the question  of reciprocity  is in process of incubation and they are.   trying to hoodwink  us into the belief  that they are inspired by  nothing but love and good feeling for us, what   will   they  not do or  say when they have us roped in?  70U WORK,  'fflKE-yoUR-MOWCY*;"  WORK TOO.

' Two ballast trains are working on  the Kettle Valley between Midway  and llock Creek.  Mi's. \V. A. McLean came in on  Tuesday [from Kelowna and will remain for a few days.  Billy Bichter arrd Vul Jlayues took  a drove ol'125 head of cattle over to  J-. Burns A* Co. in the Boundary.  Several nice strings of fish have  been caught in the river during the  past week. The water is still a bit  high but has become quite clear.  Mrs. G. P. Jones started yesterday  on a trip to Michigan to visit brothers  .'and'sisters whom she had not seen for  fifteen years. She was accompanied  by her children. Miss Avoniaand 3las-  ter Gomer.  Percy French, brotherof oar towns-  ������������������.-lii-iii F. H. French who graduated  from the Ontario Agricultural College  at Guelph, has been appointed by the  provincial government as inspector of  orchards lor the Kootenay district.  For the service orr Sunday evening  the church was decorated with flowers  anil bunting to, mark the coronation  event, and Kev. A. *H. Cameron's sermon had special reference to it. The  congregation, also was larger- than  ���������>  usual.  There was a good burnout of children and their parents at the Sunday  School picnic on Saturday last which  took place on the baseball grounds.  It was to have been held on Friday  but the rain prevented. Thsre was a,  programme of races for the kiddies.  The fragrance of tho wild roses and  . syrirrgas is most marked at present  all over the town. The whole outdoors  seems to have put on its most pleasing  garb arrd rarely has such profusion of  bloom and fragrance delighted the  senses of sight and smell as we have  this -summer.  Those who went down from Hedley  to hear the concert given by Mrs. J.  A. Brown in Keremeos on the evening of Coronation Day report the  event a great success in every way.  There was nob only a good house but  ���������a most appreciative audience. The  proceeds were donoted towards furnishing the church.  Keep your eye orr all the fir trees,  big and small, and don't let .those  ���������caterpillars get the start they did last  ' summer. 'Examine the trees and  buildings in the vicinity for the chrysalis arrd when discovered go for it  with a lighted match or hot poker;  but if they are once hatched out arrd  make their appearance on the trees  there is nothing left but spraying  while one is to be found.  Austin Hoy, representative of the  Sullivan Machine Co. made a trip up  the. valley last week and would have  stayed over- in Hedley a day arid had a  round or two of the links but for the  Oroville layover which would have  meant the spending of three, days in-  - stead of tire one. Mr. Hoy laid out  the present links during a. visit to  Hedley two years ago and continues  to take an active interest in the,game  here.  The Gazette was iir error last week  in stating that there was to be no  celebration of Dominion Day in  Princeton this year. The item was  inserted in good faith orr the authority  of a. party who had just come from  Princeton and the nearness of the  ���������date with no announcement seemed to  bear out the statement. It now trans-  spires that- there will be games as  formerly with the exception of the  horse racing which has been dispensed  with for this vcar.

All are cordially {  invited.  Fred Km t/. who was in Hedley  about live years -ago and was well  known in MeKiiinev where lie was  ���������formerly mine foreman on both the  Sailor and Waterloo returned to Hedley on Thursday last and is spending  a few days in this vicinity. For, the  past few years he has been in the  camps of northern Ontario wooing the  goddess Kortune with gratifying success for in Porcupine he picked up  some property from which he has  realized a tidy competence. In fact lie  was one of the first to find gold in  paying qualities in that camp and it is  only fitting that he should reap the  benefit of his discoveries. Like many  other prospectors in tho camps of  northern Ontario he had a lot of  roughing to do and "plenty of hard  work.  Mr. T. H. Collins, of Calumet, Mich,  a   large stockholder   in   the  Hedley  Gold 3Lining Co. arrived irr Hedley on  Thursday last for a look over the mine  and works.     In company with Mr. G.  P. Jones,  general superintendent, he  was shown over the works'in  Hedley  and  through the  underground  workings   of   the   Nickel Plate and other-  properties of the  Hedley Gold Mining  Co.    From the abundant fund of good  humor  he displayed it is safe  to assume  that lie   was particularly well  satisfied with his investment and seemed to enjoy'his stay.   Like,President  i. L. Merrill he is air enthusiastic golfer and on Saturday afternoon had a  couple of rounds of the links, showing  excellent form in the handling of both'  his wooden clubs and his irons.    Unfortunately the links after the recent  heavy rains were not in good shape,  the greens being in very indifferent  order and the rank growth of vegetation in their proximity making the approach shots a bit trying.    Now that  he  knows the trail  to the camp and  lias enjoyed  the  outing so well   it is  quite probable he will'find his way  back again  before   long,   when  it  is  hoped the links will be irr better shape  to give him a good game.  r  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  =CAMP HEDLEY  a^TCHITGROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

TOO MUCH   WARD POLITICS
.Judging from the comments of British and Australian pa-pers Sir Wilfrid Laurier' has managed to scandalize himself and, Canada throughout,
the empire* by his attitude of opposition to and aloofness from all propositions which looked to cementing the
ties' of Empire. One of the Australian
papers refers to Sir Wilfrid as Sir
Wontfrid. One redeeming feature of
the situation from which Canada can
take a little comfort, however, is that
most of these, papers refuse to believe
that Sir Wilfrid represents Canadian
sentiment in the grounds he has in.kcn.
An amusing feature of the situation
in this country is that. a. few of the
the more servile Liberal papers which
will attempt to discuss the Laurier attitude at all, are indignant at any
imputation of questionable attachment on Sir Wilfrid's part to the
cause of imperial unity and they cite
the part played by Canada in the Boer
war as their gieatest argument. For
their own good they would much better have bept that part of it in the
background for the. time is not so long
ago that people should have time to
forget the circumstances attending
that unfortunate incident. The first
v.-olonial contingent to ollVr for service
in that war was air Australian cavahv

I subject of a nauseating cartoon in the
Spokane    Spokesman-Review    of  the
22ml.     When we consider some of the
individuals who have found their way
to the   whitehouse and   contrast their
language  and   actions   with   those  of
the Bi itish  nobility there is cause for
thankfulness that there is such a tiling
as  breeding in the   human  animal  as
well   as   in  the shorthorn  or, .Jersey.
Even   the  best  minds  in   the United
States to-day protest against the bald-
headed fallacy contained in the declaration  of  independence  that '"���ill men
are born free and equal", and yet that
is the  kind of stulf the  youth  of tin;
United States ate taught to memorize
anil repeat like parrots in the schools.
It is  quite  true  there are  sometimes
degenerates and   blackguards among
nobility:  atavisms  are  known  in  all
types of  animal  life.    The  well-bred
man   whether he  be noble  or peasant
is  never'so  ignorant as not  to know,
when   he is insulting other'���people, of
finer sensibilities and the lack of that
breeding which always recognizes the.
opinions and aims of others, can never
be glozed  over  by the possession of
either  wealth or power.    If the press
of the.   United  States (and it is fair to.
assume that they represent the popular notion  over there)  cannot refrain
from    exhibiting   their    hatred   .and
scorn for some of our  treasured institutions   while so  momentous a movement as that   involved in the question
of reciprocity  is in process of incubation and they are trying to hoodwink
us into the belief  that they are inspired by  nothing but- love and good feeling for ns, what   will   they   not  do or
say when they have ns roped in?

AlKNTION THIS l'AI'KK THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, MINE 29, 19] 1.  Town and District.  T. C. Brooke, of Princeton, was in  town on "Monday.  Tin* Orangemen of the* Niniilkanieen  atii to celebrate, in Hedley on Lin* 1'iUi  of July.  Two ball.-tsL trains arc* working on  the Kettle Valley between Midway  ,-ind Bock (Jreek.  Airs. \V. A. McLean came in on  Tuesday [from Kelowna and will remain for a few days.    ,,  Billy Richter and. Aral Haynes took  a drove of 125 head of cattle over to  P. Burns A* Co. in the Boundary.  Several nice strings of fish have;  beerr caught in the river during the  past week. The water is,still a bit  high but has become quite clear.  ' Mrs. G. P. Jones star-Led yesterday  on a trip to Michigan to visit brothers  and sisteis whom she. had not seen for  fifteen years. She was accompanied  by her children. Miss Avoniaand Master Gomer.  Percy French, brother-of our townsman F. 11. French who graduated  from the Ontario Agricultural College  fit Guelph, Iras been appointed by the  provincial government as inspector of  orchards for the Kootenay district.  For the service orr Sunday evening  the church was decorated with flowers  and , bunting to mark the coronation  event, and Rev. A.'H. Cameron's sermon had special reference to it. The  congregation, also was larger than  -i  usual.  There was a good turnout of children and their parents at the Sunday  School picnic on Saturday last which  took place on the baseball grounds.  It was to have been held on Friday  but the vain prevented. Thsve was a.  programme of races for the kiddies.  The fragrance of the wild loses and  syringas i.s most marked at present  .ill over- the town. The whole outdoors  seems to have put on its most pleasing  garb and rarely has such profusion of  bloom and fragrance delighted the  senses of sight and smell as we have  this summer.  Those who went down from Hedley  to 'hear the concert given by Mrs. J.  A. Brown in Keremeos on the evening of Coronation Day report the  event a great success in every way.  There was not only a good house but  a most appreciative audience. The  proceeds were dorroted towards furnishing the church.  Keep your eye on all the fir trees,  big and small, and don't let those  ���������caterpillar's get the start they did last  ' .summer. Examine the trees and  buildings in the. vicinity for the chrysalis and when discovered go for it  with a lighted match or hot poker;  but if they are once hatched out and'  make their appearance on the trees  there is nothing left but spraying-  while one is to be found.  Austin Hoy, representative of the  Sullivan Machine Co. made a trip up  the valley last week and would have  stayed over in Hedley a day and had a  round or two of the links but for the  Oroville layover which would have  meant the spending of three days in-  - stead of the one. Mr. Hoy laid out  the present links during a visit to  Hedley two years ago and continues  to take an active interest in the.garne  here.  The Gazette was in error last week  in stating that there was to ho no  ���������celebration of Dominion Day in  Princeton this year. The item was  inserted in good faith on the authority  of a. party who had just come from  Princeton and the nearness of the  ���������date with no announcement seemed to  hoar out the statement. It now trans-  spires that there will be games as  formerly  with   the  exception   of   (ho  Hev. J. AVillianis, of Princeton, will  hold his monthly service.-, next Sunday, .July 2nd in Fiaiernity Hall,  Hedley, as follows���������II a. m.: matins,  holy communion and soriuou; S p.m.:  evensong and sei mon. Subject: "The  one lost sheep." All aro cordially  invited.  Fred Kurtz who was in Hedley  about live years ago and was well  known in McKinney whore he was  formerly mine foreman on both the  Sailor and Waterloo returned to Hod-  ley on Thursday last and is spending  a few days iir this vicinity. For the  past few years he has been in the  camps of northern Ontario wooing the  goddess fortune with gratifying success for in Porcupine ho picked up  some properly from which he has  reali/.eio a tidy competence. Tirfact he  was one of the first to find gold in  paying qualities in that camp and it is  only fitting that he should reap the  benefit of his discoveries. Like many  other- prospectors in, the camps of  northern Ontario he had a lot of  roughing to do and plenty of hard  work.'        " , j.,  Mr. T. H. Collins, of Calumet, Mich,  a large stockholder in the Hedley  Gold Mining Co. arrived in Hedley on  Thursday last for a look over the mine  and works. In company with Mr. G.  P. Jones, general superintendent, he  was shown over the works'in Hedley  arrd through the underground workings of the Nickel Plate and other  properties of the Hedley Gold Mining  Co. From the abundant fund of good  humor he displayed it is safe to assume that he was particularly well  satisfied with his investment and seemed to enjoy his stay. Like, President  l. L. Merrill he is an enthusiastic golfer and on Saturday afternoon had a  couple of rounds of the links, showing  excellent form in the handling of both  his wooden clubs and his irons. Unfortunately the links after the recent  heavy rains were not in good shape,  the greens being in very indifferent  order- and the rank growth of vegetation in their proximity making the approach shots a bit trying. Now that  he knows the trail to the cam]) and  has enjoyed the outing so well it is  quite probable he will find his way  back again before long, when it is  hoped the links will be in better shape  r  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  CAMP HEDLEY  WATCH IT GROW  It- is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen���������-Famed for Fruit Growing  Town and Lower Valley.  ,Nut'-.e Milliir, who resigned her position at the Hedley Hospital last week  spent n. couple of days iir Keremeos on  her way one of the valley.  On   Thursday   evening   last  Kit-liter  received  word  of the  serious   illness of her daughter Bessie   X  at Victoria and left the following day,    *  X  X  x  \*  X  Mi>V||  rather   ������������  via Penticton, to attend her.  The annual picnic of the Keremeos  -Sunday School will be held on Friday  next the 29th inst. The place selected  is the -first crossing of the creek on  the Fairview road. lilverybody welcome. ���������'.';���������'. . r ���������  Kev.'Mr. Mawhinney conducted his  opening services in the Keremeos  church oh Sunday last before good  congregations. Mr. Mawhinney is it.  fluent, forcible speaker and energetic  ��������� worker.   T. S. Drenrien, whose health has  been somewhat impaired lately, left on  Tuesday for Penticton on his way to  his home in Vancouver. We trust that  the change will benefit Mr-. Drennen's  health and that he will shortly, return  to Keremeos quite restored.  The first-new-potatoes which we  'have' seen on the local .market-this  year were brought into town on Saturday last by August Pedy. They  were a splendid sample for this year:  well matured, large and clean. He lias  Unite a quantity ready for the market  and expects to ship to the upper valley.  .1. J. Armstrong made a trip to  .Princeton between trains on Monday,  Iris object being to look up a.market'  for small fruits and vegetables for the  growers here. He repoits the. merchants there as anxious to secure  Keremeos fruit and garden stuff and  thinks that they can furnish a market  for all that is produced here this year.  The advance agent of an automobile  party from Riverside, Wash.,who will  shortly   make a  tour of the Southern  interior  of British  Columbia, was at  the Central   hotel on   Sunday making  arrangements for the party to spend a  night  there on  their   trip,    Another  party of autoists from Kelowna have  secured the services of Mr. Studebaker  and his  big touring ear to  take them  on a trip  through the state of Washington.     This will  not interfere with  the motor service between  here  and  Penticton as Mr.  Studebaker  has engaged u   thoroughly  reliable   man to  take his place during his absence.  ' M. B. Ewart returned on  Saturday  from his trip  to Vancouver, yia Hope  Mountain, with a bunch of horses.  He  reports the pass   in good condition fortius time  of the year but states, that  things are pretty  flat at Vancouver  and particularly so at Hope where recently there was a miniature boom on  owing to the report of the good things  at Steamboat Mountain and the consequent rush of prospectors and investors.    The first prospectors  to go in  are now  coining out and the reports  which   they bring are not such as to  stimulate others to go in.     Mr. Ewart  found sale for only a small  portion of  the horses he. took with  him and had  to bring the remainder' back.  For a time it looked as if the valley  was to allow the national holiday to  pass without any attempt at celebration. The 1st of July has always been  conceded Princeton's day and no other  celebrations have been arranged to  conflict with it. This year owing to  the press of business and the fact that  improvements to the streets of that  town made it impossible to use the old  recreation grounds there was a, disposition to allow the day to go by default. At the eleventh hour, however,  the citizens of the town in the upper  valley bestirred themselves and though  somewhat late bills are now out announcing a, two-day's programme of  sport for Friday arid Saturday with a  big dance on the evening of the HOlh.  On Saturday the train will lie held until seven o'clock in the evening so as  to enable people in the lower valley to  return home after taking in the day's  .sports. Return tickets at fare and a  third will be issued good from the 29th  to Uli.  Several passengers, who expected to  make the trip to Penticton on the  ���������'Jin-/-/ wagon" last Friday evening  were somewhat disappointed when  they found Mr. Studebaker and his  car out of com mission for the trip and  they had to resort to the old reliable  method of Tweddle special.

As  the. only expenses to be deducted from  this will be for printing and train fares  for the Hedley members,, of the company the net amount' towards the  fund for painting and finishing the  Keremeos church will be. about $50.00.  This is particularly gratifying to those  who have the work in hand as the  actual cost of painting and finishing  the church far exceeded the estimates  and even with the help of this substantial amount there will be a considerable sum to raise. Thanks are due  to Mr. Armstrong for the free use of  the hall for the concert and to Mr. and  Mrs. Bromley for the free use of their  piano for the occasion.  Chief   Engineer   Hogeland of   the  Great Northern accompanied  by Superintendent   Morgan   passed   up  the  yalley in a special train early Tuesday  morning and spent the day driving up  to the end of the grade at Tulameen.

Byron's proposal .to his wife. ,\ii.-<:-  .Milbanke, was made after sordid ills"  iiissibii and study and lacked all i:n  pulse',;. .Lady Melbourne, wlio k.ioih'I iu  his confidence, observing how cheerless  and unsettled his mind and. prosper is  were, strenuously advised liini to marry. She suggested a certain lady, bin  Lord Byron fancied the idea ot*marrying Miss Milbanke.  "No." said Lady Melbourne; "Miss  .Milbanke will not suit you. in the first  place, she has no fortune now, iiiid yon  want money immediately. In the next  place, yon want a person who will  have,great admiration for your genius;  she has1 too great an admiration for  lierself."- ��������� ..     ';���������'���������������������������     :': .-;  "Well," said Byron, "as you please."  Arrd, sitting down, he wrote a letter  to the lady recommended by Lady Melbourne.  He received a refusal.  "Now, you see;" said he, "Miss --Milbanke is to be the person, after all. I  will write to her."  As soon as he had finished his friend,  still remonstrating, read the note and  nbserved:  "Well, really, this is a very pretty  letter.  It is a pity it should not go."  "Then it shall go," exclaimed Byron,  And. so saying, he sealed and sent th*  fiat of his unhappy fate.

On Wednesday  night the best citizens of Keremeos  filled the town hall and enjoyed to the  full this musical treat. The key-note  of the concert was the singing of the  National Anthem and the chord <>f harmony was- never jarred by anything  on the stage or in the hall. The audience were so carried away by their delight and appreciation that foigetful  of the physical limitations of the members of the concert company, their  loud, hearty and continued applause  encored every item on the program.  M.r.s. Brown and her company may  certainly be proud of the success of  the concert; it breaks all the records  of the past for Keremeos. Mrs. Brown  gave the proceeds, $50,(10, to the treasurer of the Church iinpioveiuent Committee.  J. A. BROWN  Notary Public  CONVEYANCING.
