KETTLE VALLEY LINE  Work   East and West  of Penticton to  Begin Shortly.  JmS.GLmRKE  Watchmaker  Clocks and Watches for Sale.  Penticton, April 21.��������� Construction  work will he commenced east and  west out of l-'i'iiiicton within two  months and hy the onil of the year, it  is expected about 12."> miles���������or about  half the distance between Mcirittuiul  Midway���������will he spanned with steel.  Tliis definite statement was made by  J. J. Warren, president oi tlie Kettle  Valley railway, yesterday in reply to .1  question from the Penticton board of  trade as to when actual construction  would be commenced. Mr. Warren  stated that he intended to. make Penticton his base of operations this summer for construction work. The eon-  tractor will commence work on .the  wharf tlits week and a passenger depot  will be erected at the same time. As  soon as the slips are built, the C. P. R  will put in a fruit-cooling house.  WHAT OTHERS THINK  (Vernon   New*..)  The Gazette appreciates this kindly  expression from the gifted able editor  of the News:  "Bruce"  of Saturday Sunset wields  a vigorous and facile pen, and employs  language at times  in such a picturesque manner as to make his sentences  fairly leap out, before the reader's eye.  We find'much to admire  in liis bright  paper though his yiews on many matter.-   are   utterly   opposed   to   those  which  we entertain.     We are there-  fore,tlie more sorry to see him drop to  such! .depths iti personal abuse as he lias  descended  to of late in. conducting an  intensely bitter quarrel  with the editors of the Similkameen Star" and tlie  Hedley Gazette.   We are not acquain-  ed with the Star's editor, but we have  known Ainsley Megraw of the Gazette  for some  twenty years,  and  have  no  hesitation   in saying 'that when Bruce  attempts to  characterize hhn   in such  foul terms as he employed   last week  he lays himself open to the contempt  of every man who is at all acquainted  with his opponent   in this wordy war.  We  hold Major Megraw  in   high  esteem both as a man and a newspaperman,    lie was one of the early editors  of .the-Vernon News, and   though it is  now many years since he lived in this  city he still has many  warm friends  here who know his  worth and recognize his ability.    His present field is a  rather   circumscribed   one,   but  any  newspaperman   who   recognizes   the  difficulties of the situation will freely  acknowledge  that the Hedley Gazette  is a credit to its editor and the community in which it is published.    Perhaps as "Bruce" grows older he will  find, as many another writer has done  that the   use of violent  abuse   only  weakrns a case, and  engenders sympathy for  the person upon whom it is  heaped."  KITCHENER'S FUTURE  Said to Rest on Result of the  Imperial  Conference.  London, April ������������������"().���������The military  correspondent of the Daily Mail says  Lord Kitchener's future rests strongly  on the result of the imperial conference. In this connection persistent  rumors deal with the revival of the  commander - in - chiefship with far  wider scope and the adoption of a plan  of reciprocal defence by all parts of the  empire.  $10.00  REWARD  For evidence that will convict any  paities of trespass or removing property from the Bull Dog Aline.-.

BROWN'S CONCERT  The Gazette feels safe in saying that  nothing in the  entertainment line got  up  locally  has   equalled  .the-'performance on Friday night last given by  Mrs. J. A.  Brown  and   pupils   with  some   assistance   from    otheis;   and  neither have  many of the  travelling  companies  who  visit the town done  any better or given a   more genuine  night's  enjoyment.     In fact many of  the-e   outside   concerns   whose   best  artists have  been lauded  to the skies  by advance agents and entertainment  bureaus were easily outdone in point ol  real  merit by some of the numbers  presented on this occasion.     No elfort  (was  made   to  press  into  the service  those who can do a little in the entertainment line in  order to fill up a programme   and meiit was the one thing  required in order to pass muster.   The  vocal numbers were confined wholly  to Mrs.  Brown herself and Miss Florence Daly, of Keremeos, the one pupil  who   has   been   long   enough   under  'her tuition  to gain .-uffieient training  and confidence.     In the  instrumental  numbers the most important part was  ���������taken by 3Iiss MarjorieSmith, pianist,  and   XV.  Daly,  of Keremeos,  on  the  violin.     Miss   Geitrude   Smith   also  played acceptably in duets with her  sister in the artistic execution of difficult numbers on the  piano,, and also  took the organ, in an  improvised orchestra   with   Miss   Marjorie   at   the  piano,  Gertrude   on   the   organ,   W.  Daly on the violin   and Mrs. Smith on  the cello.    Miss  Daly's first piece was  "Irish Lullaby,"   a   beautiful  number  given with excellent effect   and in response  to a hearty  encore she sang  "My   Bairnie*'.     Mrs.   Brown's   first  number was  Mattel's "Dear Heart", a.  difficult piece excellently given and in  response  to the encore she sang "The  Rosary" by Nevin.     Her second number in the first part was "O dry those  Tears" by Teresa Del Reigo which was  given with orchestral accompaniment.  Other features of the first part were  the recitation Whitcomb Riley's "The  Man in the moon" given by little Miss  Erminie Wheeler with a wealth of expression   and cleverness   which only  this talented child can do.    To an encore she gave "Bertie's Party"   In the.  first part Mr. F. J. Sauve gave a reading from  Drummond "How Bateese  Came Home" and showed the advantage he possesses in the interpretation  of this author in having been himself  a "habitant" fully conversant with the  dialect.   Mr.  Sauve also   understands  the use of grease paints and the other  paraphernalia of the preparation room  for his makeup was excellent.    The  rather great length of the piece, however, put him somewhat at a disadvantage  and  made it more difficult for  him to hold his audience.   In our opinion also he erred somewhat in making  the ISACONTEUR  who   had   been   Ba-  teese's schoolmate too old a man, and  also in pitching his  voice in  too high  falsetto to bear out that wrong  idea,  but he fully  redeemed himself .in the  shorter selection "The   Wreck  of the  Julie  Plant"    which  was   excellently  given  and  held   the   audience.    Miss  Daly's solo  in the second  part "The  Message of the Rose" was a   pronounced success and for the encore she gave  "Absent."    The violin  and cello duct  by Mr. Daly and Mrs. Smith, "Hearts  and Flowers"   was   enjoyed    by   all.  Erminie  Wheeler's  superb   presentation of Kdmund Vance Cooke's quaint  child piece "The Moo-Cow-Moo" was a  marked feature also of the second part.  Mrs. .Brown's solo "Absent Voice" was  a line   number which she gave  in excellent voice-  with ' My  Ain Folk" for  the  encore,   but   her power   both as a  singer ami teacher of vocal music, was  perhaps best shown in the. duet ''Nearest and   Dearest"   anil the   encore "O,  Wert  Thou in   the Cauld   Blast" sung  with   Miss Daly   in which   the perfect  DEATH WON RACE  Daughter of Late Marcus  Daly Rushed  to New York for Operation, Dies  New York, April 29.���������Mrs.' Margaret Daly Brown, daughter of the  late Marcus Daly and wife of H. C.  Brown, a banker, died early today at  her mother's home on Fifth avenue.  Mrs, Brown's death occurred within a  few hours after her arrival on a special car which brought heron 'a fast  train from Montana. Her husband,  mother and other ".members of her  family were jit the bedside when death  came. ; A special car occupied by Mrs.  Brown and attendants left Anaconda;  Mont., on Tuesday. - They reached the  city last evening when physicians said  Mrs. Brown's condition was very critical. _   _   "_' ,--; '  Mrs. Brown was married in 1901 and  inherited several million dollars on the  death of her father.  B. C.

K. Rodgers by  Thomas* Hodgens;. a -''.'mining capitalist  of'. Butte .who asks for -'judgment of  $203,000 7i gainst him anctalsoan order  restraining hhn from foreclosing a  mortgage on the Hidden Creek mines  now'being .sold to the Granby Co: The  item- further states that Hodgens had  supplied $117,000 to purchase and develop mines in British Columbia and  asked for an accounting of the funds.  WANT MINERAL EXHIBIT  H. B. Brown as acting director of  the Vancouver Exhibition Association  has sent out a request to tlie Boards  of Trade throughout the province for  a mineral display at the forthcoming  exhibition. It is expected that the exhibition will be the'means of bringing  together a lot of mining capital and if  so it will be prudent to be in the swim  by having the best camps represented  at the show. The director says in his  communication that the railways have  agreed to transport samples of ore  free of charge and as there is an abundant supply of literature on the camp  ���������which should be given as wide distribution as possible no opportunity  .should be lost to secure the publicity  desired.  One of the features of the show will  be a stamp mill in operation under  charge of a competent man who will  be prepared to make milling tests of  sample lots of ore of 250 lbs. free of  charge to prospectors supplying the  ore and desiring such test.  The value of the exhibit of course  all depends upon the number and calibre of the mining investors which the  exhibition push say are going to be  there.  The exhibition is to be held from  August 28th to Sept. 4th so there is  plenty of time to get together a good  exhibit, but if the camp is to he represented thereat it will not be prudent  to delay too long in making a start.

Camsell to  the Journal of the Canadian Mining  Institute on the history and origin of  the metal in this district. Mr. Camsell  has the editor's thanks for a copy of  the Institute Journal containing the  paper from which we clip the following:.. .;;. -;��������� . .:;,-.-.- .;.....  "The history of platinum mining in  the Tulaineen dates from the Granite  creek excitement of 1885. and as platinum is essentially a product of tue  placers,: is intimately bound up wii b  that of gold placer mining here.  In the earlv days on Granite n eck.  when platinum was) phrchaseabk- at  the rate of about.50 cents an ounce, it  ���������was regarded by the miners as a detriment rather than otherwise, and usually was not even saved in the "cleanup." AVhen a little later, however,  jthe price had advanced to about $3.00.  ah ounce, the metalv when recovered  ���������saved- and this has been the practice  since.  Not all of the creeks tributary to the  jTulaineen river contained platinum in  'association with the gold. In general  ���������it may be said. that the placers oh  ���������creeks on the southern side of the  .Tulaineen river from Granite'creek up  to Champion creek, including the Tula--...  Imeen itself, carried platinum as well  as gold; while on the northern side of  'the river only Bear and Eagle creeks  jwere productive, although not to a  ;.very large extent.  The best placers were undoubtcdly  those of the Tulaineen river itself between the mouths of Slate and Champion creeks. Here the coarsest nuggets  were found, and the proportion of  gold to platinum was about one to  one. Slate creek was next in importance, and then Cedar creek. Granite,  creek and its western tributaries, Bear  and J5agle creeks. Boulder creek, flowing into Otter lake north of the Tulaineen liver, though much worked for  gold, contained no'platinum. On the  Tulaineen river itself no platinum was  found above the mouth of Champion  creek, and below Slate creek the grains  became finer and the quantity gradu- "  ally decreased.  OlMlrIN  Much of the gold and platinum  found in the Tulaineen river is coarse  and has that rough unworn surface '  characteristic of nuggets which have  not travelled far from their original  source. Even in the beds of rapid  streams the distance to which coarse  gold travels is as a rule not considerable, and the same rule applies to  platinum, which has a specific gravity  not greatly different from that of gold  Much of the gold of the district is still  found imbedded in quartz, while the  platinum is often associated with  pyroxene, olivine or chroniite. It is to  be concluded, therefore, that the present placers are not very old; that  they have been derived from the  breaking down of rocks not vc-iy fai-  distant, and are not the result of the-  working over of more ancient placei  deposits formed by earlier streams.

A Hincks, Manager  I The  Halcyon  Sanitarium I  NOTICE  SIMILKAMFEX LAND DISTRICT  DISTRICT OK VAI.K.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  When Sir Wilfrid La.urier appealed  to til.- country a little over two yea is  ago the watchword of his friends at  his 11 quest was "Let Laurier finish  his. work." If it had been known then  that this wild reciprocity scheme was  contemplated the watchword would  have been modified to lit the situation  more accurately. What lie seems  detei mined to finish is Canada's period  of prosperity the foundation for which  was laid liy abler and more far-seeing  ui'M! than himself anil in the face of  his own mii.-t strenuous opposition.  The good people 1 f Winnipeg will  have little to be thankful for at the  hands of-the moral and Social Kcforiu  Society in the publicity now being  given the city by these people, who  are sending broadcast over the land a  report of the Social Vice Com mission  which sat there last autumn to inquire into and report on the segregation and toleration policy adopted by  the. authorities last year. Since that  agitation the people of that city reelected the old council and this surely  should be accepted by the society anil  make them pause, before resorting to  the measures they are now taking.  The British Columbia Political Equality League are holding a convention  in Vancouver this week to organize  for a stand up light to obtain the  franchise for women in this province.  When it comes to a. matter of justice  it is difficult to see why a woman who  owns a house and lot and is carrying  on a business in a town or otherwise  identified with the progress of the  place in which she is living should not  be as much entitled to a. vote for the  men who will control the money she  {lays in taxes as men are. The present  feeling of prejudice against giving  women the franchise is due more to  the. violent actions of the Pankhursts  and others of that ilk than to any  general desire to deny women what  looks on   the face   to be no more than  their right.

Hugh    Hunter  came in on Tuesday to attend County  Court  in   his  capacity   as    registrar.  .ludgc  Brown   arrived  yesterday   hutj  i there, were no cases  to   he  heard  audi  j they were thus given a halt-holiday.  h ���������'  notice at tlie  hospital   forbidding  tlie j  admission of visitor*.    The reason   for I  t  the restriction was that a case of  measles had broken out, the unlucky  one being baby Ewart. aged five days.  Oroville has been full of measles and  members of the train crew are exposed , The only way it can he lie-  counted for is that in going hack a.nd  forth in the train Constable Ewart  had in this case carried the contagion  to his new policeman. As soon as  mother and babe leave the hospital,  which should be now in a few days,  the. phice will be thoroughly fumigated. 'Meanwhile intending visitors will  please note the restriction and keep  away.:  A broken shaft at the ore bins delayed traffic on the gravity tram for a  day last week, but as they had H new  one on  hand ready for .use the repair  was  made in a short, time,  and the  supply of ore in the bins at the mill  being ample to keep the stamps going  tor some time, ahead,  no shut down  was  necessary.   This is  the first time  the shaft in this headgear has ever  given any trouble, but long continued  use under the  heavy strain to which  they   are   subjected   crystallizes   the  steel and   the   inevitable  breakdown  conies.   The shaft in the headgear at  the central station where the strain is  greater was always the offender before  and .had   broken   on   eight  different  occasions during the seven  years or  more the   mine has   been   opera ted.  Fortunately, however, the overhauling  given it a year ago by Mr.".Tones and  the changes made have given the longest period of immunity from breakage  that has yet been experienced.  Nevertheless they are taking no chances of  being fooled through  over confidence  and the extra shaft for use in   emergency is kept on hand.

Rev. A. H. Cameron contracted a  severe cold and because of it his Sunday night service was conducted under  more or less personal discomfort. The  past week or two has been rather trying in the matter-of colds which in  some cases took the form of grippe. -,  Mrs. R. S. Collin leturned on Saturday last from Toronto accompanied  by Mrs. Critchley who went with her  three months ago. During her absence she was under treatment of a  specialist in cases of paralysis and  ������������������--.other.-'nerve troubles and' appears to  liave: been much benefitted thereby.  Smoke was seen on Sunday last [  starting up from a freshly lit.bush fire  lip on the mountain side in the vicinity of Fifteen mile creek. With  everything so dry and the occasional  fierce winds that sweep up and down  the valley a bush fire is something to  be dreaded. Commissions are appointed from time to time to examine into  the cause of bush fires and devise met-,  hods to prevent them but every year  the destruction of the timber resources  of the province goes on as before.  There was a. good turnout and a  very interesting church service on  Sunday evening last with something  special in the line of music. Fortunately arrangements were made to  hold the service in Fraternity hall for  the church would not have held the  congregation. Mrs. J. A. Brown sang  in fine voice as a voluntary "A Dream  of Paradise" and with Miss Daly, as a  duet, "Nearer My God to Thee." Rev  A. H. Cameron officiated.  Keremeos people made a splendid  turnout to the concert on Friday  night. In addition to those who took  part in the programme there were  present Mrs. F. Richter her daughter  Freda and baby Rithter; Mr. and Mrs.  Moody and baby Nora; Mrs. E. M.  Daly, Maurice Daly and Geo Allison;  Mrs. D. J. Innis, Miss Hattie Innis  and Miss Bromley; Miss McConuell;  Rev. A. II. Cameron, J. A. Brown  and Charlie Armstrong.  For ten days past the boiler house at  the works has maintained the silence  of the grave and all steam has been  off. Cold and all as the nights continued to be the warm sun each day  had its effect on the snow in the hills  and there is abundance of water in  Twenty-mile to drive all the works.  The Doble waterwheel is now doing all  the work and with the extra machines  Avhich have been added and put in  operation since last summer there is  now a far greater service being required of the water than it ever had  to do before.  Walter A. Fra/.icr an insurance man  from Spokane made a. visit to Hedley  this week. While doing tlie northern  part of Washington state he found  himself in Oroville and while there,  decided to explore a little farther up  the valley.

The former made the round in  03 and after reduction of their handicap their score stood 53. Their opponents had the best of the play for the  greater part of the round making S  holes for 50 but on the last hole they  went over the bank and all attempts  at recovery were disastrous until the  situation became hopeless.  In the next set Rolls and Mis. Thain  made the round in 72 while their oppo-  G. P. Jones and Mrs. Rotherhain took  70 and as their handicaps were each 10  their standing was 50 to 03.

Mrs.   Pares  is visiting  her son,  Mr  T. K. Pares  at his ranch above Olalla.  A. .1. King and E. Boeing of Hedley  Were   vifitors  in Keremeos .on Saturday.  .1. A. Brown, of Keremeos, has been  appointed Official Administrator for  the Similkameen electoral district.  Mrs. Reveley of Hedley was the  guest of Mrs. Lowe at.the ranch last  week. She .returned to Hedley on  Monday accompanied by Mrs. Lowe.  Dave Willis has tendered his resignation as driver 'of the Pcnticton-  Keremeos stage. His successor took  over the whip the beginning of the  ���������week.  The item in our last week's news  . which stated that Mr. Hagan had purchased a ten acre block from the Keremeos Land Company should have  lead Mr. K. B. Hogg.'  The new potato planter recently  purchased by Mr. Quaedvlieg has been  doing great service this spring,- not  only at home but .on the fields of  neighbors. It has planted a large  ���������'acreage, covering as it does about  three acres a day.  Last week" a team of horses belonging to H. Ulrich disappeated in such a  manner that it was thought they had  been "lifted" and the constable was  notified to that .effect,-but they were  afterwards located above Olalla, where  they had wandered.  Members of the K.K.K. are requested to recurn any books of the club  wnich they may have in their possession to the secretary, as the books are  _to be sent to the church for the iise of  the Sunday school until such time as  the club resumes its meetings nextfall.  Tommy Daly has been taking a  week's holiday trip across the line, indulging his liking 'for' baseball. On  Sunday 23rd he pitched for Okanagon  against a neighboring team, winning  his game by a score-of 8-1 Last 'Simony he. expected to play in Oroville.  H. B. Meausette left on Monday for  Princeton where he has work enough  to keep him about a fortnight. He  has found himself unable to go ahead  "with the painting of the church, as  intended, and we understand, the job  has been turned over to Mr. Burnell  of Fairview.  E. F. Gunther, Inspector for the  Norwich Union Fire Insurance Company was in Keremeos last week. Mr.  Gunther has been appointed to the  newly created office of Provincial Fire  Insurance Inspector, with headquarters at Victoria. He is now complete-  ing his rounds for the N. U. preparatory to entering upon his new duties.  Rev. Mr. Kinney left on Monday to  attend the district meeting at Kelowna, after which he will attend conference. This will necessitate his being  absent from Keremeos on his next  Sunday and as the general shuffle  takes place on the first of June this  will give Mr. Kinney only one more  service here.  Last week the secretary of the school  board received from Miss McMullen,  teacher of our school last year, a  dainty little medal awarded to Lloyd  Armstrong for general proficiency for  the year 1910. In her letter, written  from Galiano Island, B. C. Miss McMullen also mentions the favorable  standing made by Oriel Meausette and  Helen Richter, for the year 1910.  On Monday last Mr. Gold beck and  family moved into the residence recently purchased from Mr. T. C.  Brooke. Mr. Brooke and family are  temporalily established on the new  property ;ust east of his old home,  which he purchased from the Keremeos Land Company. They intend  moving to  Princeton in a   short time.

It is not a bleached flour, but'has that rich creamy  appearance akin to the golden gmin from which it is made. ���������  Beware of the merchand who will try sell you some other  brand of flour and tell you its just as goed as "Five Roses" he is  only trying to get you to take a short cut to the "Bone Yard."  This is an age of efficency and the people, all over the  world, are demanding high class goods.  Try a bag of Five Roses and if not pleased demand your  money and it will be waiting for yon.  FRANK RICHTER &  CO.  At the mortgage, sale of the property of J. A. S-aunders, held on Saturday  last, the property was purchased by  J. A. Brown, representing the creditors, who had previously subscribed a  sufficient amount to satisfy the mortgage. As soon as a few details ate arranged the property will he offered  for sale. In the meantime James Innis  has it rented and took possession on  Monday. "Fish" left the same day by  automobile, for Princeton.  S. M. Studebaker of Merritt was iii  Keremeos during the past week running an automobile service between  here and Penticton. His object was  to sell the big touring car which he  had with him and his trips to and  from Penticton were made to demonstrate that the car was equal to the  task. Parties here who were interested agree that the time is not far distant when they will have to supercede  the "four-in-hand" with the motor but  they were not disposed to pay a first  hand price for a second hand machine  and on Monday Mr. Stiulcbnker's car  left tor home taking him with it.  There has been  further evidence of  activity up the Ashnola. this week.   *A  couple of men representing the owners  of the  tungsten   claims were in   to ascertain   the   prospects  of   early  commencement on  the wagon  road and  also Mr. .T..T. O'Leary of Helena, Idaho,  is  exploring that  part of the country  with a view to ascertaining the most  favorable  outlet for  products  of the  country back of the Ashnola.    It is to  be hoped  that there will be   no unnecessary delay in  the building of the  road up the Ashnola from this side as  such delay might easily mean tho construction of the road from Nighthawk  or some other point on  the other side  of the line and the loss to this district  of the great benefit which  might accrue from having it on this side. There  appears to be no  reason to doubt that  the tungsten people, neati business and  with  the  appropriation made for the  road we hope to see the dirt flying before many weeks have elapsed.
