Shatford who  has so ably represented the riding-for.  three successive parliaments and curried the standard of the party to victory on each occasion the seat seat  was contested, the appointment of a  committee on credentials was dispensed with. *'  The nomination of Mr. Shatford was  moved by Mr. J. O. Coulthard who  was a delegate from Princeton and  seconded hy Mr. A. Letts, from Sidley, both of whom referred in fitting  terms to the splendid service rendered  to the riding by Mr. Shatford who'had  always proven true to the trust reposed in him by the electors and the  general satisfaction felt in all parts of  the riding:  The    chairman   appointed   Messrs.  Brown,   Coulthard and   Letts a committee to draft resolution of confidence  in the Government and the representative. The resolution which was drafted and received the unanimous endor-  sation  of the  convention   referred  to  the government's splendid   record in  raising   the  provincial   credit  from a,  low  ebb  when they  took   office to its  present very satisfactory state, and ex  pressed approval of their course in the  matter of railway  building,   road improvement aud assistance lent to agriculture   while   special   reference   was  made to the  services of the representative  in procuring liberal  grants  for  his constituency   for the improvement  of roads and also   his sound and vigor-  ousadvocacy of railways for the riding.

Shatford  Stands on the  Railway Question  The Penticton Herald in referring  to Shatford's position on the railway  question says:  '���������The representative of Siinilkaiueen  who  has for   many   years 'impressed  unon   the government'his  conviction  that a feasible route through the Hope  Mountains,    by    way   of   Coquihalla  river, existed, must be  pardoned if he  is somewhat  pleased at  the arrangement made  whereby the Kettle Valley utilizes  this  route.    To  not only  the Southern Okanagan and Similkameen valleys, but to all the lake points  will great advantages accrue from Unbuilding of this   line, shortening as it  will, so  materially the distance to the  coast and   thereby   lessening freight  and passenger   charges.      If  there is  only one route  via Hope, the Government must see that the  Great Northern and  other  railway companies are  given   the  same    privileges    as   the  Kettle Valley Co.    There should be an  agreement giving the G. N. Company  running rights over the Kettle Valley  lines.     Although   the  G. N.   Railway  has  not   progressed  as rapidly as we  expected, if must be remembered their  work  lias rust  the  province nothing,  and I hey   no doubt by their activities,  hastened the  construction of the Kettle Valley   lines.    Jt   is largely  due to  Siniilkauiccn's representative, that the  Great   Northern was  enabled to build  into  tho Similkameen and he will undoubtedly  see they are   not handicapped, in building through  to the Coast,  bv any action of the government.   '  which will give Princeton an .opportunity to hear at least one of them  and still allow the Ministers to carry  out their programme in the other  ridings, which requires- them to  go up the lake, on Tuesday 19th and  give meetings in Penticton, Kelowna  and Vernon that day.  The plan now arranged is to have  the Premier and Mr. Shatfoul goon  to Princeton and hold a meeting tlie re  at the same time that the Attorney-  general is addressing a meeting, in  Hedley.  The intention was to have both  afternoon meetings at PrincecO'n and  Hedley at 2o'clock, but if the Princeton meeting is neld at 2 there .must  evidently be some arrangement for  holding the train at Princeton"- for at  least tin-hour or more and'in that case  there would be no necessity for bringing on the meeting at Hedley so early.  An hour or an hour and a, half later  .would enable more of the men hearing  him, for a 2 o'clock meeting* would he  rather bad for both the shifts going on  and coining off at 3 and the*men' coining off at five would have no chance  at all.' ,: -..  Should to-day's nomination proceedings result in Mr. Shatford being returned by acclamation they may want  to make some change.and dispense  with the Siinilkaiueen meetings. This,  however, would be a very great disappointment to the people in this valley, and Mr. Shatford will use his utmost endeavor to have the programme  carried out as outlined above.  Later word tells that the party are  travelling by special train and in all  probability the hour of 2 o'clock will  be adhered to.  KETTLE VALLEY PLANS  The Coquihalla Section to be Tackled at  Once and Completed Simultaneously  with Linking Up of Midway  and Coldwater  HOW HOME RULE PINCHES  British Cabinet Slowly Falling to Pieces  on Customs Phase of the  Luckless Bill  J. S. Warren, president of the Kettle Valley, gave an interview to the  Penticton Herald and said; :  , "It is not decided-.-yet'-, whether the  line eastward will be built- out from  Penticton, but it is possible that the  construction up the west Fork of the  Kettle'river, now well advanced, will  be continued over the,, summit.'down-,  into Pentictcni.  "Grading from the wharf to the.  river crossing will .start/ just; as stain  as the frost is out of the g round.stiff 1-  eientlyto expedite the work, and the.'  construction of the -roundhouse, machine, shops-and yards will then be  proceeded with.  "Mr. Warren 'also"stated, thatrif  their company were met in a,reasonable spirit by the people of Siunmei-  hind, as regards the right of way, the  construction from Mile Five,west over  the .Trout 'Creek''summit will lie undertaken without, delay. Work will  also he prosecuted on the Coquihalla  section, at tho -'beginning of May, and  endeavors will be' made to have the  line completed over tlie Hope summit <  by the time the section between Midway and Coldwater is linked up. The  construction up the Kettle. Valley will  be vigorously pushed with the hope of  reaching the summit before winter.  "It is also hoped that 50 miles of  grading will be finished before the  close of the-yoar, and that the steel  will be laid on the greater part.  "There is more ballasting required  on the 30 miles completed south of  Merritt. When this is finished the  equipment will come to Penticton.  THE STARVING DEER  MILLIARD'S  BERBER     ������HOR  FOIL AX' KA'SV SHAVK  HOT & COLD BATHS  Next door north of Grand Union Hotel  When   writing   Adversers      Please  Mention the Gazette.  Manitoba is going to allow women  to practice law in that province.  Saskatchewan wants a port on Hudson Bay. This would give; a. Hudson's  Bay port lo cyery province from  Saskatchewan in the west to Quebec  in the East. So far if has not been  learned that either Hritish Columbia  or Prince Edward island have asked  for a port on that body of water.  London, March S.���������The "Times" parliamentary correspondent states that  the cabinet is very divided upon the  question of granting the Irish parliament control of the customs. There is  a strong section of the Ministers in  favor of giving control of the customs  and excise to the Irish parliament. He  says the Treasury is resisting the proposition, and the fact that Mr..Redmond has accepted control of the  customs by the Imperial parliament,  places his supporters in a difficult,  position. One of the chief reasons  why control of the customs is desired  by Irishmen,.adds the "Times," is that  if the Irish parliament had the right  to bargain, they could olt'er to put  American maize anil bacon on tho free  list, in exchange for the free listing of  Irish potatoes, onions, etc.  Mr. .1. Catheart Watson. M. P.,  writing to the "Times," makes a strong-  protest against the proposition to give  the Irish parliament control of Irish  customs. Such a provision would  saddle the Irish parliament with the  expense of ambassadors, consuls and  negotiations for commercial treaties,  and would certainly suit those who  wish to-see the Liberal party broken  into fragments.  (Greenwood Ledge.)  Owing to the deep snow,  this  has  been a hard winter upon the deer, find  many  have died of starvation in the  Boundary district. Even some coyotes  have crossed the big divide for lack of  food.    For some  time past  herds of  black-tailed   deer  have   haunted   the  suburbs-of. Greenwood  in , search  of  food.    To protect their weakened bodies from   the coyotes  the deer  have  stood  in   herds of 15 or 20 around the  Bonnie Belle cabins, Floyd's ranch and  other places for the past month.    Last  week Sid Oliver  found a two year old  doe on  its  last  legs.    He carried the  doe to  his stable and .surrounded her  with hay, turnips and other food, but  she was   too weak to   eat it.    He then  fed her with milk, but the animal was  too far gone and died the   next day.  Billy  Oliver found two dead ones on  Jubilee  mountain and  the rest of the  herd   too   weak   to  run   away.      Sid  Oliver wired the provincial game warden  asking that  the government supply-food for the animals.   The warden  wired  for further particulars, and in  the meantime the deer are b^ing supplied   with   food   at-   various    points  around the city.      Deer will he scarce  for a few   seasons unless  the shooting  of them is prohibited for a year.

Like  Mark Antony of old he doubtless  chuckled to himself "now mischief,  thn-u art afloat : take whichever way  thou wilt", but in-the debate which  followed he. was told by Pclletier and  others some plain wholesome things  about his own Janus attitude in both  the past and the present and he. had  the chagrin of seeing, when the vote  was taken, that only five of the -Quebec nationalists were sufficiently subservient to church bigotry to follow  him in the matter. The others supported Mr. Borden in refusing to  gold-brick Manitoba by handing them  new territory and saddling it with  separate schools when the educational  system of Manitoba does not recognize  separate schools.  any higher  quality of  statesmanship  than he did when in a similar position  before 1S90,   and   the same species of  trickery  which" marked him the hies- j  ponsible opportunist   in   the days of ���������  the '-Bleu bolt"  of 1S85 and the  "Remedial  Bill" of 1890 are  again   being j  displayed by  him  in his attitude  on  the Manitoba, boundary  question   recently up in the House of  Commons,  with its miniature "nationalist holt."  The keynote of his policy  in the matter of readjusting provincial   boundaries  is  that of using his   utmost  endeavor  to create b;id feeling   between  the various provinces.    First  he fried  it with Manitoba and Ontario   but the  premiers of these two proyinc.es were  too wide awake and patriotic  and too  strongly dominated  by common sense  and justice   to be influenced by any of  his petty  appeals for an  exercise of  ill-will.    His next move  is  to  stir up  sti-'ife  between Manitoba  and Quebec,  and so far as Quebec is concerned   his  chance of making a greater success  of  it   in that quarter   is better.     Examples  of -magnanimity   on the  part of  leaders of an opposition   appear to be  lost on  Sir  Wilfrid Laurier   and he  can never rise to  the  occasion  when  an opportunity to give some evidence  of the existence, of that trait presents  itself.     Time and again   Borden set  him an  example, but Sir Wilfrid appears to have forgotten  all about it.  Balfour's attitude  in   backing up the  position   of Sir Edward   Grey,   and  Bonar Law's  magnanimous  reply  to  Asquith the other day  on the subject  of the coal strike   are instances of sufficiently recent date  to have given Sir  Wilfrid a hint;  but when a man's not  built that way all these linei  are lost on him.

Through   the  opposite calamities   of  drought and  flood   3,750,000 famine-  stricken Chinese are starving   and in  ���������Canada foodstuffs  worth  millions of  dollars are spoiling  because  the.  crop  was  too  heavy   for  the  railways  to  .ship to Lhe east.

Billy   Lonsdale, who  has been  master mechanic at the works for a couple  of years  and was  engaged  at similar  work   at the  mine in the earlier days  of the camp,   left on Monday for England.  Penticton   had a   suicide last week  - when  a   young man  who   had   been  boozing hard chose an effective method  of ending  the spree hy   placing  the  stick  of dynamite on  his  chest with  fuse and  cap attached, and firing the  charge.  After a^ brief interview with  Constable Sproule the spiiituahstic  trance medium who claimed sistcrship  with Anna Eva Fay cut short her intended stay in town and departed  southwaid with her dusky consort.  The pair had been married in Princeton.  Tf you have anything you think the  public should have and that they may  want worse than you do, why not take  a little coiner of the paper to tell them  about it? To be alive to tlie public  wants and to let them know that you  can supply them is the whole secret of  business. *���������  On the .tenth of March seven years  years ago there was regular summer  heat. The water increased in Twenty-  mile creek so much that there was  enough that day to drive all forty  stamps and it kept increasing steadily  from that date on until the period of  highest water.  Rev. T. A. Osborne, of Princeton,  came down on Friday last accompanied by his wife and child and 'remained over until Tuesday. On Sunday evening he occupied the pulpit of  the Methodist church, taking the service for Mr. Mawliinney, and preached an evangelistic sermon on tlie subject of Zacchens.  For almost a month the road be  tween here and Keremeos has been  dry and dusty. Informer years the  end of February and beginning of  March was always marked-shy panoramic alternation of icy masses, dry  gravelly ridges and occasional mud  holes with plentiful supply of running  water everywhere.  George Shelder sold his ranch at  Sixteen Mile to Mr. 'Joseph Cooke, of  Enderby, and the price paid, we understand, is $4000. Considering tlie  fine ..'quality of the land and the fact  that it is within a few yards'.of a railway station and comparing it with  the price at which'land.is selling in  the upper Okanagan where the buyer  hails from he can Hatter himself On  getting a lucky buy in this piece of  Similkameen property.  One. evidence of the transformation  which has begun in this valley is seen  in a drive down tlis river to Keremeos  where one is now hardly ever out'of  sight of blue smoke rising up from  clumps of clearing here and there,  showing that the work of reclamation  of th< soil from a. state of nature is  steadily going on. The only place  where utter abandonment of anything  in the shape of improvement seems to  exist is on Brusliy Bottom and possibly  there is  n������~������ tract of land on the  ," i ' ' i  river that would better repay improvement put ot it than the same piece of  pioperty. Why there is no move there-  is one of the inexplicable things.  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  CAMP HEDLEY  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

In another column the Riverside  nurseries offer fruit-growers and those  who are just breaking into that line, a  tempting array of requirements for  the spring planting.

It is always prudent to  get the order In earlybefore any of  the favorite varieties have been sold  -out.  C, II. Brookes of the Kingston mine  returned from the south on Monday  -and arrangements arc being made to  increase the working force in a few  weeks and to get in the gravity tram.  Mr. Brookes was well satisfied with  the treatment tests which he had  made of Kingston ores, and the information thus obtained will give him  -ample time to mature plans for a  plant pending the progress of development work at the mine. He was  ���������certainly gratified at the fine showings which have already attended development work done in the last few  weeks.  H. A. Turner, road inspector for the  Similkameen riding was in town on  Saturday. He has just returned from  attending the Good Roads convention  at the coast and is chock full of ideas  for road betterment. It is understood  that when he was here he gave instructions to local road foreman,  Harry Rose to begin operations with  the first of April. This is a splendid  idea, of getting the work started earlier in the spring instead of waiting  until half the summer is over as they  used to do a few years ago. The  ground is softer in tlie spring and  works easier and the weather being  ���������cooler men can do more work than  during the summer heat.:  MINING NOTES  The recent find on the Dayton is  likely to give an impetus to mining in  the eastern part of the Similkameen  riding. The Dayton is an old claim on  which a strike was made in the closing  clays of 1899 and some wonderfully  rich ore obtained from it. A couple of  shipments were made to the smelter  and good returns received therefrom  although the shipments were made  under very unfavorable conditions and  the sampling indifferently carried out,  hut heretofore they were never able  to obtain the deposit strongly in place.  There are few camps that give better  encouragement for exploratory work  at medium cost than the ridge between the north and south forks of  Rock Creek, and the Dayton claim,  small in aiea as it is, should be a good  point from which to work. There are  several other good showings in the  .immediate vicinity, and among them  is Jim  Copland's Leroi claim.  Another five miles of placer has been  located on the Similkameen liver in  addition to that mentioned a week  ago. This latest staking runs up the  river from the location made at the  Ashnola. Ceeek "hd'would cover all  the ground to the lower end of Brushy  Bottom, much of which is now included in ranches. The locator litis inscribed himself John McCluie, Princeton.  The Granby is not expected to pay  any dividends for two years as the  output of the smelter at Grand Forks  is expected to provide the funds for  building the smelter at Hidden Creek.  The  company that litis acquired the  dredging i ights oil the Fraser between  Hope and Emory Bar has, been -very...  successful in selling stock and lias now  ample funds for equipment.  Five miles of Rock Creek, between  White's Bar and the Falls, have been  leased by a Keremeos and Vancouver  syndicate, who will test the bed of the  creek for placer gold'by diamond drill.  ���������Ledge.  At the Dayton claim, on Copland  mountain, about six miles east of  Camp 3IcKinney, Blough, Hamilton  and Yonkin have struck have, struck  eight feet of ore. About three feet of  it carries $42 in gold and copper to the  ton.���������Ledge.  The niining outlook for Camp Hedley in 1912 looks better than it has  done for years. In addition to the  Kingston, the Apex and in all probability the Oregon there are negotiations now afoot which indicate the  bonding of some more likely ground  in the immediate vicinity of which we  hope to be able to give more definite  details shortly.  The Ledge says that the gold shipments from Greenwood are in excess  of $50,000 per month.  On,one of the Voigt claims on Copper Mountain the B. C Copper Company have 110 feet of cross-cutting all  iii ore. ,  GENERAL NEWS  THE  NEW  ZEALAND  HOTEL  JOHN JACKSON, Proprietor  Everything New and  First-Class  Bar supplied with tlie Choicest  Liquors and Cigars, and Special  Attention   paid   to   tlie   Table.
