Premiev McBride made an important speech in the House on the second  reading of the Kettle Valley Railway  Bill, providing for an alteration in.  route letting the raihvay into Princeton and putting Aspen Grove on a  branch line.  In an analysis of the negotiations up'  to the agreement entered into between  the government and the Kettle Valley  Railroad Company, the Piemier detailed the entire history of railway  development in the Similkameen district.  The Premier pointed out the difficulties which the administration had  met in endeavoring to get the Great'  Northern Railway to hasten construction. He said that he had personally  visited St. Paul and that officials of,  the Hill interests had made many  visits to Victoria but that for some  reason or other there was delay after  delay, and ho actual work of construction was begun until a. peremptory order was issued by the lailway commission calling for a joint agreement be  tween the V., V. & R. and the Kettle  Valley to operate the section hetween  Hope and the Coquihalla by which the  V., V. & E. would be enabled to use  the section on payment of rental and  certain charges for maintenance.  SLIGHT DEPARTURE  The original plans of the Kettle  Valley railway called for a route from  Penticton through the Okanagan hy  way of Aspen Grove to Coldwater  Junction, and under the agreement  proposed, the railway company is required to build only from Penticton to  Princeton, a distance of seventy-five  miles and from Merritt to Otter Summit, a -distance of about thirty miles.,^  ���������thuBj-j-^  MAKING FINE,.>t  JESS  AH  The  Foundation  lind  Piers oh The  East Half of the Dam Completed  DR.

The  Premier said   that   when   the  Kettle Valley opened negotiations for  the change of route the only objections were filed by the people of Aspen  Grove,   who were  represented  by Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper, who said that  on the  strength of the  promise of the  line  passing   through    Aspen    Grove  large  holdings of land   had  been disposed  of in  England and  that a government map showed n  line in   the  vicinity of Aspen Grove.    Most of this  land-, the Premier stated,   stands from  3001} to 4000 feet above sea level  and is  unsuitably for anything but grazing.  The  Premier spoke of the visit of  Mr. J. E. Bate of Victoria,   who came  protesting against the diversion of the  line and said that at a joint conference  held last  Saturday it was  agreed that  a  branch  should   be   built  to   Aspen  Grove as soon  as there  was sufficient  development and  that the question of  this sufficiency should be  referred to  arbitration.  The Premier promised that the same  procedure should apply to the branch  of the North Fork of the Kettle River,  the Franklin Camp. In dealing with  the progress of the road the Premier  said:  "Then: had been expended on construction the sum of $10,000,000, steel  had been laid on almost a hundred  miles on the section between Midway  and Penticton. The roadbed and track  is built for forty miles west of Penticton. and the remaining' 33 miles to  connect with Princeton will be completed by December 31st, 1014; and by  this date the Great Northern has  agreed to have the section finished  between Princeton and Otter Summit,  which means that hy the end of the  year it will be possible to travel by  Spences Bridge route through the  Kootenays to the Coast, and next  year, with the completion of the Co-  quhalla section, it will be possible to  come over the mountains."  In conclusion the Premier painted  a glowing picture of the development  of the rich Similkameen, Okanagan,  Boundary and Kootenay districts  which would follow the completion of  the line.  During the past Mfehk marked progress was made on the power dam on  the river for the Hefliev Gold Mining  Company, the fine:. weather of the  week being taken fiill advantage of  and in a few days more it is expected,  that the work on the .west half will be  under full swing. -The five piers on  the "east half, which.--.were under construction, are nowi? all filled . with  cement and ready '.fbi* the stop-logs  and the turning of thi-;'river. As mentioned before, the ii prims on both the  upper arid lower ->idt's of this section  of the dam were completed some time  ago, and at the preseljt rate of progress  it is expected that thCJ.end of the week  will see the river'fcu'rried over on the  completed section. .Before the river  is turned, however, it".is the intention  of the management fc'o build another  pier to the east half. ^  The work of diggii^g the ditches for  the foundations of this dam and aprons  for the western half has already  fcion for the abutment on this section is  been started and the turning of the  river is also under way. The exeava-  also being carried on fvith the greatest  possible speed and ; the earth and  gravel which is taken out is being  used to throw up a - wall to help in  turning the river.  lhe stop-logs whii;li will be used in  the dam, arrived from Princeton last  week anil are now in position to be  put in as soon as the, forms are taken  off the piers. With the favorable  weather which they ..are now having  and the experience gained from putting in the other half it will not be  long now before all'the piers will be  completed and ready for the bridge.

HEDLEY HAS SMALL BLAZE  On Saturday evening about nine  o'clock the fire bell 'was rung on account of a small blaze-in the home of  Mr; Jack Fraser, on Kingston avenue.  The hose tenth' made a speedy turnout  but by the time they reached the  house the fire was out owing to the  prompt action of some of the neighbors.  How the fire started is-a mystery as  Mr. and Mis. Fraser- and children  were at the picture show and no one  was in the house atthe time. From  all appearances the fire started in the  clothing on the bed and the paper on  the wall of the room had caught fire  from them.  Mr. McKinnon was the first one to  notice the fire and give the alarm and  it Was fortunate that the fire was  noticed as soon as it was or there  would have been a different story to  tell as there is but a few feet  separating the home of Mr. and  Mrs. McKinnon, on one side, and the  cabin of Major Megraw and the home  of Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton, on the  other, and it would : have required  some smart work on* the part of the  hose team to save these buildings.  The fire did no damage beyond burning the bed clothes and destroying the  paper on one wall of the room.  Toronto. .March 7,���������Sir George Wil-  lian Ross,  Liberal  leader in   the  Dominion Senate,   and formerly Premier  of the Province of Ontario, died today  after an  illness lasting several  weeks.  A little over a week ago, Sir George  had a relapse and had been lying h\j������  state of coma ever since until 'I'fcui-j?  day  night when   he  had a  retprn^to  consciousness.    Ha was then cle'i'-r and  rational  in his  mind  and was ifble to  talk lo his visitors.     Yesterday limr.n-  ing he was still  conscious and Lady-  Ross and  other lelatives spent some  time  with   him.    Sir  George  became  woise yesterday afternoon  about four  o'clock and from that time he was unconscious   with more rapid  failure at  five o'clock this morning.     It was evident at that hour that Sir George was  ���������sinking fast and he passed peacefully  away at about 8 o'clock.    Only   Dr.  Greer,  amuse and his  valet were at  the death bed.     Lady Ross  had been  sent for  but Sir George  had  passed  away before her arrival.  Born in the county of Middlesex.  Ont., near Nairn, September IS, 1S41,  the future Premier of Ontario received  the ground work of his education in  the public schools, afterwards passing  through the Toronto Normal school  and Albert College, Belleville, from  which he received the degiee of LL.B.  in 18S3. The honoiary degree of LL.D.  was afterwards bestowed on him by  five universities.  Always a strong believer in Liberal  principles. Sir George tool, his first  plunge into the maelstrom of politics  in 1872, when he was elected to the  House of Commons for the west riding  of Middlesex, which he represented till  November 1883, when he entei ed Ontario provincial politics, taking the  -portfolio--of education. *_undei- Premier  Mowat. In the Legislature he also'  represented West Middlesex.  On Premier Hardy's retirement in.  October, 1S99, Sir George succeeded  him as Premier, which office beheld  till the final defeat of his party at the  polls in February, 1905, afterwards  acting as Leader of the Opposition in  the legislature till his appointment to  Senate, of which body he was elected  Liberal leader in the fall of 1912, on  the death of Sir Richard Cartwiight.  ���������-���������'" - '-' i������i������ ���������   SIX POUND LIMIT   REMOVED  Parcel Post Now Takes Eleven  Pounds  ���������No Additional Fee for Delivery  by Carrier  Ottawa, March 5.���������The ultimate  11-pound limit of weight for the parcel post w-enj^tttoieffeot today.

FEWER -EMIGRANTS THIS YEAR  But  Better   Class   Coming   to  From the Old Country  Canada  WANTS THREE MORE SENATORS  British Columbia Wants Increased  Representation  ACCIDENT AT  PENTICTON  On Tuesday evenimr, Mr. F. Bull,  and Mr. Tom Godfrey had a serious  accident at Dog Lake when Mr. Bull's  team bolted, throwing, the occupants  of the rig beneath the wheels.  Mr. Bull sustained three broken ribs,  and serious bruises, while Mr. Godfrey was badly hurt about the  head,  and  it   was feared  at first by Intents are made.  A petition that the number of senators for this Province be increased to  six is contained in a motion introduced by the Premier at Monday's sitting  of the Legislature, Which proposes  that "the Lieutenant-Governor be requested to forward the prayer of the  House increasing the present number  to the Dominion Government.  The motion brought down in the  House on Monday, reads as follows;  "Whereas the Parliament of Canada  has under consideration a measure for  the redistribution of the consistencies  of the Dominion;  "And whereas it is proposed to make  provision for an additional number of  Senators;  "And whereas it is provided that  the number of Senators for each of  the Provinces of Manitoba, Alberta  and Saskatchewan shall be six;  "And whereas the population of  British Columbia as ascertained by  the census of 1911 compares favorably  with the Prairie Provinces and is increasing rapidly;  "And whereas the area and importance of the Province of British Columbia makes it necessary and advisable  that this,Province should receive adequate  recognition when such appoint-  London, Match, 7.���������This yeai's emigration to   Canada so far is not  much  more   than   half  last   year's   and,the  emigration for  the  whole  year   will  possibly  not exceed  100,000,   judging  from   the  present   bookings,  as compared  with    191.000  in  1913.    Mr.    ,T.  Obed Smith, the Canadian emigration  superintendent,   says  other  emigrant,  receiving countries, like Australia and  the United States, are suffering   more.  The Empress of Britain  today  carries a full complement of second  and  third-class    passengers,     about     1300  third-class  passengers are  booked  on  the    Canadian    Pacific   steamer   for  March, while there is a brisk demand  for econd-classs accommodation.    The  Allans say they have  plenty of room  for second and third class  passengers,  but expect  a  considerable  movement  after the middle of March. The White  Star Company  attributes  the decline  to the newspaper reports of Canadian  unemployment, and   thinks that probably many went to  Canada last year  who had   better not have  gone.    The  Cunard Company says it has heavy St.  Lawrence  bookings   for   the    end   of  April  especially on   prepaid  passages  for    Ontario    farm      workers.       The  big demand for second-class   passages  indicates an improvement in the class  of emigrants,  GENERAL NEWS  The Chinamen started last week to  get the land on Smelter Flat in shape  for the planting of their garden.

Mr. Bull and Mr. Godfrey were  climbing into the wagon, when the  horse started and the reins which were  in Mr. Bull hands broke, the horse  bolting.  The Provincial parliament prorogued  on Wednesday, March the 4th.  "Therefore, be it resolved that His  Honor the Lieutenant-Governor be requested to forward through the proper  channels to the Dominion Government  the prayer of the House that the number of Senators for the province of  British Columbia be increased to six,  so as to give British Columbia an equal  standing in the Upper House with the  other Western Provinces."  Buttercups were picked on the golf  grounds on Sunday last.  Clarke and Davis, the two men convicted of shooting constable Archibald  were granted a reprieve of 15 days.

CANADIAN   IMMIGRATION  It is reasonable to expect a decrease  in immigration during this calender  year. Authorities, federal and provincial, and all tlie private,' agencies will  not encourage .hiiiingi al.inn of laborers  and mechanics, unless they desire to go  on tlie hurl. Farm settlers will lie  welcomed to every province of Canada, as will farm laborers anil domes-,  tic help. The wonderful activity in  'railway construction and in other  development work has brought to  Canada- ninny .thousands of laborers,  so that during last winter the labor  market has been overstocked. While  activity will continue tlie existing  supply of labour is'probabiy sufficient,  and it cannot be expected that railway construction will be continuous at j  the pie-sent rate. It Would- be better'  if construction workers would ultim- j  ately settle on the land but a large  number are: not of that class. Many  follow railway and other contracts  from place to place, intending to return to Europe when they have -made  a mildest competence. Of laborers  from British countries and from Northern Europe a certain proportion  take, homesteads or buy land and tuiti  their attention to farming.  But the effort's of all the immigration  agencies will be directed to the encouragement of agricultural settlement. If  this class of immigration is maintained  the rest will take can- of it-self. Even  in this class more attention should be  paid to quality than to quantity, it is  better to add to Lhe population a hundred thousand competent peisons who  will prospei and be satisfied than twice  that number with thirty or I'm ty per  cent, of prospective failures. After  nil it is not a matter of necessity that  Canadian lands should be occupied  at the earliest possible date. A country  with more land than people is much  more independent than one with more  -people than land. Our children and  ���������grandchildren will need homes and  farms, and they will not thank us for  crowding themout of the country with  settlers who are no real strength to  the Dominion. The time is coming  when we. may wish we had excercised  more fully tho power to exclude and  less energetically our disposition Lo  invite.  When    United    States   critics    are  discussing C-imtda's hoi rowings,'  they  must not overlook the fact that up .to  the. end of 11)10, the United States had  borrowed ������(iS.$,0l)u,<)00 of British   capital.    At   that     time,     Canada,     and  Newfoundland  had   had  ������872,000,000.  Since then, the   republic  and   tlie   dominion 'have still  more  money from  the   British     investor.    Sir     George,  Paish   estimates    Canada's    share   to  date at ������500,000,000  and -ji'edicts , that  within 15 years, the total will   be  4il,-  000.000.000.     The    United    States     is  probably proud because it has developed,much of its   natural   resources  and  after   borrowing    several    billions    of  dollats of British   money,   has now   a  little surplus money to lend.    Canada;,'  some   way   behind,   is    travelling   the  same   road,    with   the    advantage    of  being able to observe   most of   the   in-  advisible  steps    of   tlie   .other  North  American,   who   went   ahead.���������Monetary Times.  other stories and- articles, along j.with  the regular 'departments-devoted to  the interests of "the trap line, trap-  shooting, etc., etc., which are as usual  well maintainedrto "make a magazine  that should be read by nil Canadian  sportsmen and -by those.

Harness and farm implements just  arrived, go and see them at Ezra- Mill's  Hardware store.  The water wagon has been moved  into town (latest report) yet the canary  birds still sing in sweet melody.  Miss Winnie Manery went up on  Monday's train-.to. stay a couple, of  .weeks*with Mrs. Hamilton  of Hedley.  A large number of people, spent a  pleasant evening last Friday -as the  guests of Mr. and Mis. E. ,T. Christie.  Mr. and Mrs. John Mattice and their  daughter, Mrs. Carr, are expected in  from Poi t I'elly, Sask.. on Saturday  thellth.  Mr.   and Mrs.  J. J.   Armstrong and,  Mrs.   Carmichael  and   daughter  paid  Princeton    a  visit   Friday   returning  liotne Saturday after spending a short  but pleasant visit.  Harry Meausette, Ben Nickle and  Ldrkie Gillanders returned last week  from the Ashnola where they have  been doing some work on their preemptions up tlie 'river.  Mr. and Mrs. B. Barlow and daughter. Miss Kathleen, got back home Satin day from Princeton where they  spent the past winter. Ben will now  ���������Din e more busy himself in the produce  business.  Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Crooker left on  Wednesday for Lacombe, Alta., at  which place they hope to be present  at the golden wedding of Mr. Ci-ook-  i'1'.i father and mother; They expect  to return on the 28th March.  J. J. Armstrong reports that the  town of Princeton is looking ahead  with renewed hopes and smiling countenance's at the prospect of ccuiiihg  activities on the part of the Kettle  Valley railway, whose main line will  now  pass  through that  town.  R. L. Cawston arrived buck in the  valley last Thursday the 5th looking  in the best of health, and feeling 1 he  exuberance of this delightful ozone  was a.s spry and merry as ever. For  the past two months Mi'. Cawston has  been visiting friends at the coast cities,  most of the time of which was spent  in Victoria.  The apple packing class which was  under the guidance of Mr. ,T. B. Cast-  her, of Vernon, came to a successful  close on Tuesday afternoon. The  pupils did remarkably well all making  a. high percentage. For packing G.S.  Tickell came first .with' 9S, Lloyd Armstrong second with 90A andLawicnce  Vadei- third with 05A. The following  will show to what exent the pupils  have gone ahead, Miss Richter������5, Geo.  Clarke 95, J. Johnson 94, E. C. Armstrong, J. Pedy and K. Robertson 92,  Miss Harrison 91 i, M. Daly 91-i, C.  Harrison 91, Clint Cawston 90.  The demand for apples is far greater  than the supply there being very feW  left in the valley. If the growers had  a car load left they could dispose of it  in short order. Apples brought a good  figure hist fiilland the demand was  good so the growers were practically-  cleaned out before the winter set in.  We think it would be far better for  the western or 'upper valley merchants  to buy apples in larger qualities. Prospects for a big fruit crop this year look  very favorable. Vegetable production  should be more carefully studied especially in regard to the supply and demand. This particular part was a  little overlooked the past season and  one must learn from experience that  because onions, we will say, were very  scarce and brought a high price it is  not necessary for them to be so this  year for the simple reason that nearly  every one will, no doubt, plant onions.  It was the salne with parsnips and  turnips, not enough to commence to  supply the demand. Co-operation  among the growers of fruit and vegetables would do away with under or  overproduction. If each grower got  some idea of what his neighbor was  intending to grow it would then be far  easier for him to know what quantity  he should plant in vegetables, etc.  J. A.

About   fifteen    people    of    Hedley  journeyed to  Keremeos on .Saturday,  March 7th, to see. their basket' ball  team put up a good fight but a poor  display of busket ball. Hedley was  a couple of regular men shy but we  don't think this would make any difference as the Kerehieos boys walked  over them. Dick and Beach Cawston  were easily the stars for the Keremeos  team* Beach scoring 13 baskets, Dick  G and Maurice Daly 5, bringing the  score 40 to 0 two fouls being scored.  Hedley had nine fouls given them but  failed to make the basket. Wagner  as referee, acted very fairly but their  were many fouls which he either  passed up or which missed his attention. Being no judge of the game we  cannot criticize too Strongly, bub we  did see a. little rough stuff pulled off  once in a while.  The teams lined up as follows :  Keremeos Hedley  C. Armstrong Centre Hanson  Grainger Right Guard Robertson  Keeler Left Guard Berrett  Cawston    Right Forward  Bowerman  D. Cawston Left Forward G. Knowles  For Keremeos, M. Daly replaced C.

I There are Two Kinds of Printing  The one is turned out by the man who believes that  anything goes, but the other by the one who values  the reputation of his establishment too highly to  allow any work to go out which will not do him  credit.  There is just as good work being done in country  offices its in the cities, aiid often as poor work in the cities  as in the wrorst country shops  In Prices the country office bah do just as well for  you and you save the express.
