But there are other ore bodies in  the near vicinity than the ledge already referred to and the extent of  these from surface showings would  indicate very large deposits. 'Years  ago when the: Golden Zone 'was discovered and the -first development  done tlie fissure character of the body  iirst worked on, caused, it to be re  ferred to as "the quartz camp"and .the  assay values obtained were always of  a most encouraging kind, oven away  fi-om the portions of the ledge: that  would class as high grade.  Working on the old idea that no 111  ing is a mine that does not,go down  the present operators -.are concentrating their work on the fissue. sinking  their shaft on the hanging wall. They  are now down something over 50 feet  arid that it is giving satisfactory results, goes without saying, at least  with those who have the opportunity  of seeing samples of the matter that is  being taken out week by week in  sinkimr.  The -property was first  owned   by  Messrs. J. J. Marks,   Paul Brodhagen  and   Jim    Murphy,   and  nearly- two  years    ago  T.  H.   Marks  bought  in,  when the  owners  unduly  enticed  by  the favorable showings, made the  too  common mistake of putting in  a  mill  before   they  weie  ready for it,  and  over a year ago a five stamp mill and  prospecting plant including hoist and  pump were  hauled  to  the claims  at  heavy cost over deep snow in the dead j  of winter before a. road had been built I laying, now that  to tlie property.   The amount of labor | hand  and money involved in getting a. way  cut out to haul   the  plant in  was  au  outlay that could   have  been  avoided  by waiting for completion of the government road   then   projected and   in  course of construction,  and it was a  severe drain upon their limited finances.  Unfortunately too the cost already entailed  of   getting   it   in   prompted   a  cheaper and more ill-advised installation of it than   prudence would  warrant, and  as a   consequence  the  mill  was placed  at  a point where a permanent supply of water could not  be  counted on and had almost given  out  in the 'exceptionally dry summer of  last A-ear, before they  were ready to  start running.  This brief narrative of events is  given that a proper understanding of  the present situation may be obtained.  Since then .7. J. Marks and his  brother have made arrangements to  take over the interests of the other  partners and a company has been  formed known as The Golden Zone  Mining Co., Limited, with a capital  stock "of $500,00!) having 2,01)0,000  shares at 25 cents each, arid none of  this stock will be disposed of less than  par, so that when the stock is sold as  fully paid and non-assessable it will be  'As yet there is no. definite information to hand as to, when track-laying  is to begin north of Kememeos. Mr.  Kennedy was here last week, but had  nothing to give out further than to  admit in' answer to question, that  sufficient quantity of line steel to lay  all the way to Princeton had. already  reached Keremeos, and that other  material for track-laying was also on  hand. Tho only part which was yet  ���������lacking was steel for the yards, and  that Avould not be needed until considerable track had been laid.  Tt is presumed that the contract for  laying it will go to Porter Bros, again,  for their mill on Rock Mountain has,  been sawing on bridge timber, ties and,  piling for over two months, and tics  .���������ire already being forwarded by the  regular trains to the present end of  tho track.  Last week their representative was  in Keremeos looking over the situation and the piincipals were expected  in every day.  Rumors, however, have been afloat  that there 'would, be no''.truck-laying  before, the middle of Ma.y. One  authority given for this statement,  was 15. C. Morgan, of Spokane, divisional superintendent, for thoS.F. &N.  branch, and it is also believed that' he  told parties in Keremeos that one of  his reasons for saying so was that he  did not know of any engine on this  division-that would be available for  track-laying before that date.  Possibly he knows, but the loth of  May seems an unlikely date to begin  for by that time two days' work would  be about all they could put in on  tracklaying from the ; present-end .of  the rails until they would be tip  against the first bridge; and we all  know that the .middle  of May is  no  Robert   Stevenson Tells  Seattle   Post-  Intelligencer A Story of  Early Days  AT THE A. Y. P.  time for bridge-building "over the  Similkameen river.  The two -'miles or less of track  necessary to cover the distance between the present end of the rails and  the. first bridge would not be a formidable task to attempt without the aid  of an engine and that amount laid,  the regular train'-to Keremeos could  easily lay down the bridge, timber in  time to enable the first bridge to Input in before high water.  These repeated delays and postponements become very exasperating to  people up here who have waited so  long, and who begin to think that for  some reason or other the Great  Northern are in-no hurry to get into  this camp, notwithstanding the fact  that there are properties here that  have been waiting year after 3-oar for  raihvay transportation to instill large  plants to put them on a. producing  basis and thus make business for a  railway.  The lack of an engine seems   an  extraordinary excuse for a great system  like the Great   Northern   to  urge, for  two months' delay  in   starting  track-  tho  material  is  on  fully paid and nnn assessable in fact  as well as in name. The treasury has  been ampl}- provided for and all  vendors' stock is under a cast iron  pool and in escrow until such time as  the property is producing.  The intention now is (and ample  funds are coming in) to sink this shaft  to a depth of 200 feet with drifts at the  100 and 20!) foot levels, and with the  vein proven to that depth,definite data,  will be obtainable on which to base  plans for reduction plant.  Meanwhile tho five stamp mill is  there now available for any mill runs  and tests, and dining several months  of spring and early summer may be  run on the rich gossan to help out the  treasury, thereby saving some of the  stock. The hoist and pump-are necessary in the development under way  and are being used lo good advantage.  Last year the government road was  completed past the property. The  mining is being done efficiently and  economically. The ore body is bo-  having splendidly both with reference  to persistency, quantity and value ;  and altogether tho prospecls are exceedingly bright for a. complete success of.the enterprise,  (Post Intelligencer) ' ., ���������  Robert Stevenson, of the Similkameen district, the last; 'surviving  member of the famous Collins expedition which blazed* the trail over, the  Cascade mountains to the gold camps  on Similkameen river, is a guest at  the Butler, having "delayed in Seattle  to:'.renew .acquaintance among, the  miningfraterriity and especially among  those identified with the early history  of the Northwest.  Mr. Stevenson was a very close friend  of the late John Collins, the leader of  the expedition, and delights in telling  of the stirring scenesatnd thrilling incidents that fell to the lot of those  resolute men who '-made the first passage over the Cascade mountains into  theinterior of the state from Puget  Sound. The following is his narrative  of the expedition :  "Towards' the close of 1859 unusual  excitement prevailed, over reports received in Seattle concerning a rich  strike made at Rich Bar, 011 the Siiuil-  kamecn river, by the boundary survey  party.. The failure of the Fraser river  rush had put,a damper on business' in  Seattle, so I with two other companions decided to strike out to the new  diggings.  "About the middle of January. 1S00,  a notice appeared in a'paper published  in. Olympia stating that Capt. Collins,  of White River, would lead a -party  over the mountains on to Similkameen  river. We judged it ���������better to seek the  protection of this company rather than  start out alone, so joined his party at  White river and set out April 2'J, lStiO.  ItKFUSKD H1SAKT OF SEATTLE FOIt $500  "I had $500 in my possession   which  Some Features of the Show���������Buildings  Completed���������Exhibits Already  Arriving  Henry L. Yesler tried to get me to  invest, offering me twenty lots for  the sum. These lots now cover tlie  section around the present site of the  Butler hotel, but I refused the deal.  ���������'While,  on    the   truii   John  Goliins  often    told    us  about  stirring   lights  against the Indians.    He   had   bunt a  block house oti his farm "for protection  and    had     mounted     a.    six-pounder  cannon on the top.     His  ammunition  consisted of saw teeth and rivet heads  which he used as grape  shot.     About  the second day out  we  met  a    partv  headed by Terry, of  Seattle,   a muleteer, coming back.    There   was  three  feet of snow on the mountains at this  time.    Terry's party advised us to   return, but after numerous consolations  thirty-four of the original   party decided to push on.     At this juncture  Capt. Collins asked for   volunteers   to  go ou ahead and report   the  condition  of the snow in the drifts. A man known  ;ts Big Dick, myself and Collins  started out to obtain the information.   We  ciossed the mountains and went right  down to the Yakima river,   where  we  cut- our names on  the   bark of a  tree  to assure  the   members of  the   party  wo had performed our mission. We hail  eaten our last  mouthful  at daybtead  and started to   rejoin the   band   without any provisions.' After two days of  lurribie suffering we gained the camp,  reported the condition of the snow unci  advised flu; building of   a   brush   trail  over the snow.     We were   two   weeks  in completing this trail, which extend  ed over thirteen miles.   Often Ave were  compelled    to    hew     a     passageway  through tlie delist; undergrowth.  HAKLSIU1VS IX TIIK HILLS  "On .I line 2 wo crossed over the summit, bringing all our animals, which  were sorely reduced owing to hick of  feed, and on the tth we struck the  first bunch grass we had seen since  leaving home. We were, all very tired,  our blankets Wert: wet and had been  so for two weeks past. When Collins  called tho roll tiiat night thirty-two  answered in a whi.-per. I. alone was  able to raise, my voice lo its natural  tone. At thai time 1 was 21 years of  age. The captain prophesied by the  side of the huge fire we had started  thai 1 would live to see every one of  the party tinder the grass--a. fact  which has been verified for the past  fifteen years.  Continued on Page Four.  Right'now the Alaska-Yukon-Pacif-  ic J-Dxposition is the magnet that is  attracting thousands of people from ���������  eastern; southern and middle western  states' to the Pa cific Ct >ast' partly for  the -'reason that the exhibition will  open up <i new line of thought with its  gmit displays from Alaska, Hawaii  and''; the Philippines as well as the  Orient, and partly because of the  much advertised scenic beauties of the  states bordering on the Pacific.  The state of Washington and more  particularly the Puget Sound country  vyill soon be the Mecca for trainloads  of strangers. But Washington will  not hold the visitors for an indefinite  period for they have something in  mind further than a visit to the exposition at Seattle.  There ai e opportun i ties on the  Pacific coast for the homoseekers as  well. as the .merchant, and manufacturer and the visitors to the fair intend  to set: just what Oregon, fdnho, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Nevada,  Oklahoma as well as British Columbia  have to offer in the way of inducements to settlers. Of course the'  tourists will be here in large numbeis  and. their itinerary nearly all the  mountain, hike and seaside resorts of  the Northwest.  The exposition itself is going to open  the eyes of the thousand.*-- of visitois  who will come to Seatlle expecting to"  find an exhibition very similar to  what has been offered before. The  Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition is  not going to be remembered after its  gates close because of its great size or  by the number of its buildings, but  because of the beautiful picture formed by the work of the builder and  landscape ai tist, framed in by lakes,  mountains and woodland scenery distributed lavishly on every hand by  nature.  At this time, more than two months  before the official date of opening, the  buildings stand complete, the streets  tire payed and now the exhibits to fill  acres of space are arriving in Seattle..  Canada's magnificent exhibit that attracted the attention of thousands-of  visitors to" the Franco-British .Exhibition at London, last-year,.has arrived  in Seattle, and from Italy comes several carloads of tare .exhibits for the  foreign section and big manufacturing  concerns thorough the United States ���������'  are forwarding their displays^direet.to  the exposition grounds where now  a long row of heavily laden freight  cars waiting to be unloaded is ;i daily  scene.  Within thirty days every exhibit  building oti the ground will have its  display in ��������� readiness early in May.  When the gates of the Alaska-Yukon-  Pacific Exposition open June I, 1909,  tlie show will be complete in every detail, tin example of western spirit and.  enterprise.  GENERAL NEWS  Le Roi No. 2 made over a quarter of  a million   dollars profit last year.  The workings of the Le Roi at Rossland are to be carried down to the  2(550 ft level or 1000 deeper than at  present.  The Summerland Review is one of  the healthiest publications in the  district financially and every way, and  the new boss in charge, Thos. Collinge,  who is a thoroughly practical man  will amply sustain the good reputation already established. Summer-  landers have in the Review, a paper  that does them credit, and the manner  in which they patronize its advertising columns shows that they understand how to do 1 heir part in attaining the high standa.rd of excellence already achieved.

THE ODIOUS COMPARISON
When   it   comes   to   humanitarian legislation   Johnny  Bull
may not  make   quite   as   much
parade of it as some others, blithe generally  contrives   to   lead
the procession.    With considerable   flourish   of  trumpets the
Burke bill was introduced   into
'tlie ��� United    States    Mouse  of
Representatives   about  a  year
ago   to   make  equipment with
wireless   telegraph   compulsory
on all passenger carrying ships,
and after the Republic,   disaster
President       Roosevelt       made
special effort to haA'e  it  passed
by using a.   special   message   to
congress in Avhich   he  implored
them to let   the  United   States
government have the credit  of
being the   first  to   pass   such   a
law.   Well, after much haggling
and considerable   change  from
its original form   the House of
Representatives     did    pass    it
about the middle   of  February,
but ratification at the hands  of
the senate Avas necessary -before
it could become laAV.  This body
accordingly held  it  up  on  the
pretext that Avireless companies
might charge  the  ship-owners
too much  for  installing,   that
being urged as the main reason
for throwing it out.     Thus  the

making sure of getting the best!
much towards securing, and at
the various other laws for
amelioration of the conditions
of the Avorking classes, passed
both by the British parliament
and the various Colonial go\rern-
monts of the British. Empire,
and it Avill be seen that the
British people no' matter in
Avhat part of the world they
may be found, easily take the
lead in humanitarian legislation.
But for. purposes of comparison, Avhat . better example is
needed than, the treatment
'meted out to the "compulsory

Some similar stock-biking or inventory of natural resources would seem
wise on the part of Canada as well. It
would be even more timely here, for
Canada hits not yet reached the state
of material development- .that the

have not been dissipated-to., the same
extent. In.order to secure .wise..administration, it fit.i- fuller knowledge

Office   at   HEDLEY,   B.  C. ra^^tft^Gij^T^^^^^," 190?..,  fz. t-*W*/.*ii.  Town and Dfetrwft.  Good   Friday  two, weeks from  to*-  .   morrow.  Blake Wilson, of P. Burns & Co.,  was in town last Aveek.  Bert Jones and family arrived from  Vancouver on Saturday.  L. H. Patten went over into the  Okanagan on Friday last," returning  on Monday.  Mrs. O. J. Marshall and child left  yesterday morning foi Meiritt, where  Mr. Marshall is employed and where  they will make their home.  'Mr. and Mrs. J. Neill having leased  their ranch at Sterling Creek left yesterday for Alberta, where they-will try  prairie life for a while.  Arthur Madden came over from the  Boundary last Aveek and has gone up  to work on the Golden .'Zone.... Arthur  is one of the old guard, who did good  service in McKinhey in its palmy days.  It'is reported in-town that Tom  Henderson, has taken unto himself a  wife in Manitoba, in the person ,of a  buxom widow with six children.  Many of Tom's.-friends in. Hedley refuse to believe it, lint Tom never does  .things by halves. ', ..���������.-.���������.-,  ,; The cold nights of the past ten days  served to check up the thaw which  was setting in, .and as a consequence  the increase of Witter in Twenty Mile  has. been disappointing. Ten days  ago the flow of water in the creek  Avas double what it was a couple of  days later.  ��������� Look out for your stove-pipes. The  risk of iirc. is perhaps greater these  days than it has been all winter. All  stove-pipes need "cleaning out after the  winter's burning, and as the roofs are  all dry and water supply short, extreme care should be exercised, especially, by those who have* no chimneys.  J. A. Brown, of the Keremeos  Trumpet, was'a pleasant caller at the  Gazette office on Saturday last, he and  Mrs. Browa having driven up to pay a  visit to friends in Hedley. It is now  just a round year since he launched  the Trumpet, which.he has conducted  creditably for that time'.and., kept up  to a high standard of excellence, and  as a neighbor he has always been the  right sort.  The'town seemed to fill up in a few  days last week with workingmen, and  many of them dead broke. Railway  construction and the resumption of  Avork on the Nickel Plate were possibly  the   lodestones    which   drew,    them  ,"Mr. and Mrs. H. SI 'Joy-tier gave a  party on Saturday evening last which,  Avas largely attended."' The fine roomy  house is particularly we'll'adapted for  functions of that kind," and although  everything in the way of entertainment was altogether impromptu, the  company was soon enjoying themselves. Refreshnumts, consisting of  sandwiches, ice cream, cake and coffee  were served and shortly before midnight all had depai ted. An important  part of the function.was the voluntary  contribution on the part of the guests  towards a purse, for Miss Lowndes,  music teacher, in recognition of her  performances as "organist for   church  services.   Miss   Lowndes,  before  the  a       ��������� .  the breaking up of tlie party, .thanked  the company for, the kindness thus  shown her.  Mr. R. L. Broad-bent of the Canadian  Geological Survey went out ..'.again   on  Friday    morning last,  after   making  arrangements for a,'display of.'-Hedley  ores at the A. Y. P.    He   was pleased  to find thatdiere. there was no difficulty  in.getting samples of commercial  ore  in any Size that might be '-required and  that not   one  but   'several  properties  how working could furnish them.   Oh  Thursday he wen t up to the Kingston  in company  with Mr.  John  Gladden  and was shown through the,Kingston  and Metropolitan workings  where: he  was   very much   impressed   with   the  showing.    Mr.' Broad bent is iioav  one  of the oldest men on the Survey,   having joined it in'1882 at the same time  as. Mr. A. P. Low.    Of .late, years  he  has not been as closely connected with  either the field or  the departmental  work of the "'survey.as formerly for he  hits had charge of mineral displays tit  various exhibitions  on- behalf of -\blie  government.    The work of the survey  has increased: to such   extent of late  years, requiring the services of many  new men,.-and/as'several of   the older  hands have been dropping out, he finds  that each time he returns from 'abroad  there are many ne\y.men.in  the force  that he has not met. .-"���������'.   .<���������/'. v v  COMMUNICATIONS  HEDLEY NO   SPECIMEN   CAMP.  Its Ores do not cut Much Figure in Fancy  Specimen Cabinet.    The two Million  Dollars Already Recovered is  Their Main Charm  hither. Most .of ��������� them seem well behaved chaps who will likely be scattered around in steady jobs through the  country in a few weeks'more. It just  takes it little time for things to adjust  themselves.  D. P. Terrill has obtained a job at  Merritt-and left for there'.yesterday  morning. Mr. Terrill was in the employ of the Daly'Reduction Co. for  several years as watchman, and alittle  over a year ago had the misfortune to  fall off the flume, sustaining injuries  from which heJias not fully recovered.  Mr. and Mrs. Terrill made many  friends during their stay in Hedley  who are sorry to see them leave town.  On Friday morning last AV. J.  Forbesj who was working on a building nearby, saw smoke issuing from  the roof of .las. Stewart's store, in  proximity to the stove-pipe. Getting  on the roof and ripping off the roof  plate, he found fire burning in the  sheeting hear the stove-pipe, but as it  had not made much headway it was  easily extinguished. Had it gone a  little longer before being noticed the  result might have been serious.  The flume appears.to be in bad condition this spring .and Avill waste a  great deal of power from leakage unless given an overhauling. If this is  not done it is reasonable' to assume  that the company must have some  other power plan in view. A party  who was along it one day last week  informed the Gazette that there .-tie  various sags of six inches or more in  places and any one of these would  mean a loss of over 15 per cent from  the total capacity of the Hume even  without the leakage loss, which is estimated to be very much more than  that.  A monster specimen of Golden Zone  ore taken .-it a depth of -h*5 feet out of  the shaft now being sunk was brought  down on Wednesday last.' It came off  the hanging wall and would weigh in  the neighborhood of. 240 lbs. Those  who are most familiar with .Golden  Zone ore and have had assays made of  the various kinds of ore met with in  th.'it ledge claim ' that it will assay  .somewhere in the neighborhood of  $100 per ton. The specimen will go  to Scattleand will afterwards be taken  to Otttiwa where it will have a place  in the geological nieseum.  One reason why. Hedley ore is seldom to be found among mineral collections on the outside and very little  of it is displayed even in the town is  that the ore in itself is not much to  look at.  lu fact it could for the most part he  described in the language in  which  it  Wits claimed AV. A. Carlyle condemned  the Boundary  country   when  in  1S07  he issued his first report as  provincial  mineralogist, and in   that report dismissed the truck as ''mineralized country rock."    Well, Hedley ore���������the ore  from which more than two millions in  bullion have been   taken   in  possibly  not more than four years' actual  running time, with only forty stamps���������is  for the most part   just    mineralized  country rock, and in most cases does  not look any better than country rock.  ..In. most of cases   the  ore   bodies  do  not appear as  lodes  or  veins  but as  large irregular deposits or mineralized  zones of country rock  that by some  process or other during a. long period  of nietamorphism  and  influenced  by  eruptives have'been  made the receptacles of vast millions worth of  gold.  Some of this rock is much more heavily mineralized  than Others.   In fact  so much so that, the country  rock appearance is lost and the specimen   has  all the appearance, to the uninitiated,  as genuine vein ore, but often its value  when   most    heavily   mineralized   is  much less than the commoner looking  mineralized country rock.  Neither is mispickel, which is the  prevailing sulphide of Camp Hedley  ores, calculated to make .as attractive  an appearance as pyrite chalcopyrite,  bornite or gelena, the more common  sulphides in the ores of other camps,  and especially is this so when the duller iriispickel is so finely disseminated  through the sedimentary rocks and  the andesite which form the gangue  of Hedley ores, often concentrating  less than .12 to S per cent.  To go around the workings of the.  Nickel Plate and also the Sunnysides  mines, particularly the hitter, and note  the almost complete absence of waste  dumps, and then to see the huge glory  holes, drifts and stopes, the entire contents of which have gone down the  tramway to the stamps in Hedley,  every cubic foot of it contributing its  share in the total output of possibly  about two millions and quarter of bullion is to understand why Hedley is  not a Ciimp for fancy hand, specimens,  although even some of these may tit  times be met with.  ���������Editor. Gazette, .'     ������������������   ;-;.<'    "*-'  Dear Sir:--     -   *  We beg to address you on two or  three matters.which should be of in-  inteiest to each one of the different  interests of your town and district  relative to its development. Speaking  for the Beautiful Valley Land Co. of  Keremeos, let me say that we are in  heartv\accord with the Board of Trade  of Keremeos and with the other progressive elements of that place in their  programme for pushing the advertisement of the Avhole - Similkameen as to  .its latent resources 'both mineral,  agricultural anchindu.strial.   .  -.  . We are advocating the co-operation  of the whole valley, Piinceton, Hedley  and Keremeos in sit-once issuing a  booklet or bulletin giving every phase  of the principal resourcesof the valley  and pointing out in 'particular the un--  limited opportunities in mining and  agriculture. Such a book to be pro-  vided'by the contribution of all the  '���������vestedi interests of the 'valley, find 'by  this we mean ranchers, miners,;  .lumbermen and mercantile interests  and citizens and land men.  We can see .no reason why Princeton  and Hedley can afford to withold from  working hand in hand with Keremeos  towards supplying a general  exhibit  of the different native, products of the  Aralley for the Alaska-Yukon  Fair tit  Seattle..    AVe  know  that the   upper  valley-is going to supply some minerals  for'/jthe All  Canada mineral',exhibit  but there is  no  excuse  for not  being  able to seize this.rare chance to  place  before   the   outside    world   the rich  mineral, and agriculturafwealth of.the  valley, and for the  nominal outlay  of  a.;' very   few hundi-ed  dollars, surely  there will be-enough local fore sigh ted-,  he.ss.to grasp'the- fact that this is  the  p roper  time -.and greatest chance, in  their history to;,attract' capital from  the United   States.     And  let  us  say  that it has been a 'fact that a larger  part of the capital invested in in in ing  in    B. C.  and  the   -Siii'iilkaiheeh   hits  been   .voluntarily   induced from   the  United States, and how is the time for.  us to use the magnet  of our  rich  deposits by efficient   advertising at the  big fair to attract   the capital  we so  sorely need at this time. ' ,  Not only should we have the exhibit backed up by the choicest advertising matter but we want a properly qualified man to give.* out the  proper line of talk tit the Fair during  the time it lasts.  As a company we- are 'prepared to  give our quota of- the expenses for  .this Aybrk and would ask your valued  assistance through the medium of  your paper and pen. There are,other  reforms now standing begging in the  way of joint organizations of the  different centres of the valley that .'ire  so badly needed and we hope-much for  unity -along this line in the near  future.  Yours very sincerely,  GEO. S. LAAVRENCE  for the B. V. L. Co.  P. S. One more important opportunity that should not be lost to take  advantage of the splendid offer of the  Great Northern Raihvay in supplying  through your Board of Trade or other  business body a concise write up of  your district to be -'carried in their  printed bulletin, which are'issued  from time, to time and spread broadcast over the United States and Canada���������a valuable advertising medium���������  supply the matter and the Railway  Co. will print it gratis.

March 10th, '09  TIT-BITS FROM PENTICTON.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., arrived  from the coast on Monday's boat. Mr.  Shatford-looks pretty fit in spite of  the all night sessions.  I was told quite an amusing tide the  other day and it's so good that I am  going to repeat it:  "It appears that a certain lady, who  lives about a mile from town, called at  one of the stores the other day and  ordered a quarter dozen lemons to be  sent to her house with a few other  articles. The obliging merchant who  ke,eps a boy and rig for delivery purposes sent the things out in clue  course.  Imagine his consternation five d;tys  later when the maid employed by the  lady in question appeared bringing  with her her mistress's compliments  and a lemon which she said she had to  get changed as it had got a little dry.  What the merchant said is not likely to be found in any of the Sunday  school text books, but being a man of  the world you can easily guess.  A stranger picking up our local  paper Avould be inclined to think that  Penticton must  be the one place in  Canada where a 'local option law  should he in force. Nearly eATei*y week  we are treated to a. column or so on  the temperance question. As a matter  of fact there is less drinking here than  in lots of towns half the size of  Penticton. A drunken man is almost  as rare ,as the egg of the Great Auk,  and although a- few of us take a drink  occasionally we get it decently and  openly and nob'at the back door or in  some alley way like the people do in  some of our supposed temperance  towns in the Okanagan. There is one  point the fair minded local optionists  have lost sight of and that is the depreciation in the value of most of the  hotels that at present hold a licence  They have not given a single thought  about compensation. They Avould  lower, the value of a man's house to  less than half, that he had perhaps  paid bwenty or thirty thousand dollars  for without giving him a red cent  compensation.  And supposing <*iftor doing this the  same man carried out their ideas and  ran a first-class temperance house I  very much doubt if he could count  very much on the local. optionists to  support him.  The council have had a foot path  cleared along the east side of main  streets and it has certainly greatly  improved the appearance of our main  thoroughfare. Residents on Ellis  Street were in hopes that something  would have been done on the north,  end of that street. This is practically  the main entrance to the town from  the wharf, and in its present state it  is a very poor advertisement. Hopes  ran high when the councillor of works  was seen nearly every morning for  two weeks pacing out the street and  sighting lines for imaginary sidewalks  His daily scramble through the brush  was also watched with deepest interest ; and after nil, it is rumored that  the daily pilgri mage through the bushes  was to the nesb of a domestic fowl that  had got-a touch of 'wanderlust' and  laid away from home.  t^8$������ir^%&*^rK%tr������S>>'^&g^C>8g*%'Q8^|l>8;i������ae  i  X  X  X  V"f:V   -".JBl-^k^-'lH * -'��������������� "^jjft-.O-      I  t~.  ��������� m.

A Tale of Pioneering  ������������������", ('on tin tied from .Pa-jo One  "AVe started-down the Yakima \T������il-  ' ley on the 5th and continued until Ave  crossed the river on the 7bh. The  Indians gave us a good deal of trouble  and Avere very hostile, attempting to  run off our stock and steal bur-'provisions. They folloAved and hovered  about the cavalcade, continually.  "At Lake Chelan we met the first  white man since leaving Seattle. His  mime was Toinlinson and he was living with the indiitns. He was known  to a few of the party. He was very  ugly and would not associate with the  expedition. When we struck the  Okanogan river a halfbreed by the  name of Francois provided us with  boats to cross.  USED IIISTOKIC CANOE  "One of them he pointed out was  'that used by the McLaughlin party in  1S5S in their inarch   from  the Dalles,  Or., to  British  Columbia.     The nine  holes in   the  bow  of the    boat Were  caused'by the lire  of hostile  Indians.  On the 22nd day  of June Ave crossed  the boundary line into British Columbia and shortly-afterwards arrived   at  ourdestinatioii, the Rock Creek mines.  Here the company was disbanded. The  richness of the new   diggings   was  reported back, and during tlie following  summer about S,()()0 gold seekers came  over the trail from Seattle to the. new  camp.    It was this result'that prompted Collins'w'h'eii he. claimed-'that Seattle owed its start to his expedition,  as  the greater part of these miners   were  outfitted    at  the  little   town   on   the  Sound.
