Post office's will be. officially  closed to-morrow and the prescribed  period, of mourning for a irroneirch, 60  days will be duly observed. The arrangements of the provincial government in connection with the death  will be identical with those on the occasion of the demise eif Queen Victoria. -All theatres are closed to-night  and nunierens sporting events arranged for tomorrow have been called off.  premier's tribute  Victoria, May 6���������"British Columbians, always truly loyalto the throne  will mourn with millions of subjects  throughout- the empire this deplorable demise," saiil Premier McBride a  few minutes after the first intimation  reached the provincial capital that the  "Peace maker of Europe had passed  away.  INTEREST IN PROVINCE  "We in this westernmost province,"  the  premier continued,   "have always  been   more or less directly  under the  eye of the sovereign, and it seems only  the either day that we  were rejoicing  over the personal interest his majesty  had manifested in  our affairs in going  enit of his way to enquire  as tei tlie lo-  Lion of our fruit exhibit,   paying it a  visit and subsequently expressing his  much appreciated favorable opinion of  that display and his good  wishes for  our development and prosperity.    The'  incident so  tvpical of  the  monarch's  kindliness and broad sympathies with  the life anel   well-being of his people,  brought-very directly lo us the feeling  that we.  possessed, as we nndoubtc'dly  did,  the friendly and sympathetic interest eif our King.  NEAR TUB PEOPLK'S II HART  Those of us whei may have had some  brii'f experience; in the motherland  know how very ruia.r the heart of the  people- his majesty was. As a man as  well as a monarch King Edward typi-  iieel the finest characteristic quality of  his national manhood. What more  can be saie! of his majesty now that he  has laid ���������uiele tlie sceptre and is at  rest than liis already been kaid'of him  Ottawa, May, 4.���������- At the conclusion  of the prorogation ceremonies in the  senate this afternoon, parliament's  address of farewell to the Governor-  General was read in English by  Speaker Kerr of the senate and in  French bv Speaker Marcil of the  commons.  ��������� Earl-Grey, in reply, referred to his  wide acquaintance with the Dominion.'  and its people; and expressed his deep  appreciation of tlie- references to Countess- Grey and their'', daughter Laely  Sybil anel Lady Evelyn Grey. ' Earl  Grey concluded:  Gentlemen,  it is   not without any  twinges of  the  heart   that I  realize  thatthis is the last '.'occasion on which  I shall have the honor' eif meeting you  officially.     Although our eifficial eem-  nection  with you,   unfortunately for  us, is  soon te> cease,   I can'assure you,  speaking not only for myself,  but for  Lady Grey unci thy, daughters, that so  loug as  we live,  neither .'distance runtime  will ever efface from our hearts  the  recollections  of the  many kindnesses we have-received, the pleasures  we have enjoyed,  our deep effeetioh'  for our Canadian home for the interest we shall ever continue   tei feel in  the. future and fortune, not'only of our  many-   personal friends, 'but  of   the  country and people   whom  we have  learned to love so well."  SIMILKAMEEN ESCAPES FROST.  Fruit in the Similkameen  Uninjured by  Frost Which was Prevalent Through  The Okanagan  LOCAL NEWS  The warm weather of the end of lust  week started the river"booming and it  reached a high point before any check  came. The larger creeks'also respouel-  ed and joined their quota tei swell the  flood, but the dry spell had been so  prolonged that all the snow had disappeared from the lower levels months  ago, and most of the'smaller creeks  that are not perennial, had begun to  dwindle to summer size.  There was a washout on the G. N.  R. four miles from Oroville on Tuesday night which has held up r/ulway  traffic. To this calamity has also been  added the damage, through high water,, to both railway bridges between  Hedley anel Keremubs. The extent of  the damage is not known but things  look blue for an early resumption "of  traffic. Both bridges being damaged  and eight miles apart there will be; ne>  chance to transfer the. mails. . Evidently the old stage will have to go  into service again for a spell.  Lawrence Trehune, of the Boundary  was married last week  in Greenwood  to  Miss Skelton,  anel  their wedding  tour was a prairie schooner voyage to  far-off   Fort   George.    One   of   their  halting places was at Keremeos which  they  reached on Sunday evening anel  here a    rather   funny   incident   toeik  place, for awaggishGreenwoodite who  happened    tei   be  there   that evening  conceived the idea of having a lark by  saying that    they   were   gypsies   and  suggesting to a party of young people  at the hotel that they should go down  to the  gypsies' amp  and  have  their  fortunes told.    The male escort eif the  party, however, appeared to be* slightly suspicious  that they  were not real  gypsies, hut nevertheless accompanied  the young ladies down to  the camp.  Instead  of finding a wrinkled beldam  with swarthy  locks whose palm  they  might cross  with  coin  of the   realm  they    saw    the    fair-haired    blushing  bride e>f  some four elays and   the   unexpected  sight so startled  the  party  that one  of them  fe-11 in a   pond hole,  but none of them  summoned courage1  to ask the'   fair gypsy  to tell   any feu-  tunes.     The: Gazette knows but won't  tell  who  the party of   young  people  were or where they were from.  The drop in teinperature last week  caused ' dismay   among fruit-growers  throughout the district.    At Hedley  the thermometer showed 5 degrees of  frost, but most of the garden stuff and  the few fruit trees had  either  passed  the particular stage* when that degree  of frOst woulel prove fatal or had not  attained   it,   and as    the   ground   is  shaded from the sun until the air  has  had time to Warm up  before  the  sun  strike's it,  little harm  is eleme   unless  the frost is  unusually severe.    Down  at Keremeos,   wheie  l'ruit-gi owing, is  king the lowest point reached was just  about even  freezing,   but   there   they  have a large peach crop which a  hard  frost-woulel have; injured.    Fortunately, however, a careful, .examination'- of  the  tree-s has  shown   that   no   harm  whatever had been done.    It  was   reported that Mr. Richter's peaches had  been injured, but the  report .'was  altogether .unfounded.      Mr.     Richte.r  went over, all his 'trees carefully  anel  the. examination    satisfied'   him   that  all the damage put together ."wouldn't  reach five cents..'  On the contrary   his  trees are so overloaded   that the will  have to do a lot of thinning out to   escape injury to the trees.  Reports have come from the Okanagan (but whether they are accurate or  ne)t we cannot say) that at some-points';,  there '-'was frost of 12 degrees and that  the peach crop had suffered very much.  One report said that the estimated  output of peaches from Surnrneiland"  was 00 carloads and that after the  frost that estimate hael been cut-down  to 33 carloads.  RAILWAY FATALITY  An explosion took place.;cm the V.  V. <fc E. construction above Princeton  on Thursday last when on e Italian,  Dominic Iburi. was killed and another  Louis Reucci, badly hurt. The wounded man was brought down tei the railway hospital. An inquest was held  by Dr. McEweh,'Coroner, when a*verdict of .accidental death through ex:  plosion of dynamite was brought in by  the jury.  ���������       ���������         :   , JUVENILE BOSTONIANS  What may  be said to have been the  Siniilkameen's   ihtroiluction   to   light  opera (or for that part opera  eif any  kind)  was the  presentation   at Keremeos on Saturday last by the Juvenile  Bostonians   of   the   musical   comedy  "Berta's Billion"  which was put on in  the   Keremeos   Hull.      The    Juvenile  Bostonians have a reputation,oyer the  whole  the continent and  it was sole-,  ly because  of the fact that they were  passing through ou their way between  the Boundary and the Okanagan that  it was  convenient for  them   to. give  Keremeos a date.    The company comprises some ninetevn artistes, anel each  fully  equal  to   the;  part  taken.    The  piece is sprightly, the girls pretty, the  costumes-   dainty   anel   apt   and   the  music we-11  calculated to take  one out  of erne's self for  an   hour or  two of  genuine  enjoyment.     Babe   Mason in  the character of Berta was invincibly  funny and   played the Dutch girl  in a  manner calculated  to give  the play-  going public  a new idea of the* engaging quality of said Dutch girl.     Those*  who went down to take it in were well  repaid for the trip.  by all the world, that he was the first  gentleman and best beloved monarch  of his time-. Always patient anel infinitely tactful, his relations with foreign  power-s were especially distinguished  by the great confidence that alien nations invariably placi-el in his every  word and act. When the history eif  our empire: is brought down to elate,  King Edward will be given his rightful place as an unusually gifted ruler  and great constitutionalist, who performed unostentatiously and within-  spired ability his part in the making  of British history."  Whataprominent Winnipeg clergyman has to say of the Musical Eck-  hardt's who appear at Fraternity hall  on Friday, June 3rd. The Swiss Bell  Ringers played in my church last night  to the largest.audiences we have- hael  at any entertainment since the church  was dedicated. There was universal  appreciation of the artists, and before  the evening cleised the. Ladies Aid requested 1110 to engage them for another entertainment as soon as possible.  Their masterful manipulation of instruments, new and old, makes us feet  likw calling them the modern musical  wizards. I may say also that we have  never hael anything that so coniph'te-  ly filled the bill asentertainers as they  did last night.

They  loved his mother, the matchless queen  who grew, olel in  their   service (for a-  sovereign  such  as   Victoria  and   Ed-  havo in turn   proved themselves to be,  can be said as truly to serve- the people,  as  the  meanest subject to serve his  monarch) anel gave to her all the love  and-devotion  which a   people- could  give; but that has in nowise tended to  lessen the  love or respect extended to  her illustrious son King Edward wluun  they   bad known   sei long  as a fellow-  subject, anel that circumstance may in  itself  account, in   a great  measure for  that- nearness    to   the  hearts   of   his  people   which he  succe'cdcel in   attaining.    It   was not,   however,   until   his  accession   to the  throne that they ob-  .Lained any 'adequate idea of the: statesmanlike  qualities he   could  bring*  to  bear, for very few   years were allowed  tei  lapse  until   he  had demonstrated  the  fact   that  morn    had   bee-n   done  by him for the betterment of Britain's  position   among   the   nations   anel feir  the cause  of universal  peace than for  twenty ye-ars.   To Victoria the British  people   gave   love and  respect,   but to  King  Eel ward,  they gave  these and a  touch of bon camaraderie as well. This  was shown  during  the festivities  eif  Vieteiria. diamond jubilee when in the  variety theatres the artistes bang  "We take- off our 'ats to the Queen,  We: lake oil" emr 'ats to the Queen;  We   te-li naughty   tale's   to the good  Prince of Wales  But we take off our'ats to theQueum."  And yet when he ascemled the  throne he maintained its dignity in a  manner to compel respect, without  losing in the smallest degree the spirit  of e-amar.-iflerie he enje'iyed with his  subjects. Newspapers in other countries talk of his successor King George  being unpopular, but they have absolutely nothing upon which to ba.se  the: claim. Unlike his father there has  bee-ii no iie'e-asion for him te> come in  for the- same degree eif public notice  eluring his period of appre-ntie-eship  for the: high eluties of his eiffiee and  thus his personality has been elisguised,  but, tin: same may have been saiel of  his cousin the Czar of Russia, whom be;  reseinble's nnu.-h in appearance and  possibly in elisposition as well. It is  nonsense to talk eif crisis for tlie: British constitution is still there: and to it  both the sovereign and the subject -ire  iiounel.

Owing tei insufficient notice having  been given he decided, not to hold  meetings at 'Hedley and Princeton at  this time. , c  Rev.'Mr. Cameron announces-that  arrangements for the church bazaar  feir Victoria JDav aie progressing fav  orably.^ Contributions in cash and  articles for sale are coming in a man-  to insiii'esiiiicess. Mr.'Cameron hopes*-'  to make sufficient teientirely wipe, off  the; debt on the church. A stand for  tlie sale of Ihii wares will be secured  at the Centre near the recreation  grounds.  .'Major Megraw, of the Hedley Gazette was in Keremeos from Friday  till Monday enjoying**!.sort of holiday  trip anel ceillectinc: data for a special  iksiie of the Gazette which he purposes  giving Keremeos'next:week.'-- In company with the local representative of  the peiper he: visited all the fruit lots  anel ranches in the neighborhood aful  rioted the , improvements that have  been going on since his last visit here.  We leave him to give his impressions  in hisenvnwav.        .     ...  Extra copies of next week's issue eif  the Gazette, which will be a special  for Keremeos, may be secured by applying at the office of J. A. Brown.  Assist in advertising your district by  purchasing a few extra copies and  sending them to your friends at a elis-  tanc.-'.  That Keremeos can muster a gooel  gathering when the occasion merits it  was etememstrateel on Saturday evening. The seating capacity of the town  hall was taxed to accommodate the  numbers that assembled te> hear the  Boston Kieldies in their presentation  of "Berta s Billion". Among those  from the upper valley in attendance  were noticed Mrs. Gillespie, Miss  Smrth.era.in,' Miss Bradshaw, Messrs.  Chamberlain anel Megraw, -of Heelley,  and Messrs. Lurnselen and Brown of;  Princeton. The opinion was freely expressed that the performance given by  the "Juveniles" was the best ever seen  in the valley.  At the time '"of writing (Tuesday  nicjrning) a gentle r-iin is falling; the  last of a shower which continued all  through the night anel has .soaked the  thirsty hill sides anel" refreshed the  vegetation so that at present our pbiv  tion ofthe .valley presents a charming  appearance.-- While not dependent on  the weather man for our moisture a  drenching rain is always welcome here.  It benefits the land not under irrigation, clears the air anel settles the  dust. There is never enough to prove  tiresome or objectionable.  Mr. W. H. Armstrong, who with  his wife and Miss Wooelrow spent a  few elays in Keremeos last week left  for their home in Vancouver on Friday. They came.in by C. P. R, and  returned by way eif the Great Northern. Mr. Armstrong says each time  he e:emie.s into the valley he is better  pleased than the last, and that never  has he been so favorably impressed as  on the presant trip. The excellent  weather he found here and the advanced stage of the eircharels arid gardens were a revelation after what he  had experienced em the outside. Mr.  Armstrong predicts that once the V.  V.& E. is completed to the coast there  won't be standing room in the -Sirnil-  kanieeii' for* all the people who will  come in here.. He regretted that owing to urgent business at home he had  to shorten Iris visit'-here by several  days.  J. 11. Kennedy, assistant chief engineer of the Great Northern' went  through tothe front of'construction  we.itk on Saturday anel returned on  Monday: He states that the work of  railway building is progressing nicely  above Princeton but does not holel out  much hope of any more track being  laid this year. Doug Stewart also paiel  the valley a'visit during the week. At  present he anel his gang are laying  track down in Oregon. The eibject of  his trip here w as to secure a portion  of the' track-laying equipment stored  here anel which, is required for their  operations in the south.  Rev. A. H. 'Cameron is one of the  busiest of our' horticulturists these  days anel has recently completed setting out his fruit lot with a fine stock  of trees which he has planted. His  black charger Collie which'formerly  shared his inissieinary labors in transporting him over; the ranges is now  hitched to a tiny cultivator .and a tiny  one-horse plow arut becomes, with his  master, a tiller (if the soil; but there is  another implement that appears to  mystify visitors. The: long slender  handle would appear to suggest some  delicate operation anel the peculiar set  of the blade would appear well calculated to get.after angle-worms or cut-  weVrins or some other such pest tliat  the: horticulturist requires to make  war on. ' Perhaps they might understand'its iise better up at Hedley.  Though mention of it was omitted  from the large bills and dodger's issueel  for the: celebration here on Victoria  day, a feature of the day's sport will  be trap-shooting. Small bills containing particulars have since been print-  eel and forwarded to those interested.'  In addition to the ..regular team shoot  for the Shatford Cup there will be an  individual shoot open to all comers for  a purse of $35, entrance fee $1. The  cothniittee in charge are" working  faithfully to make the days sport the  best eyer and there is little room to  doubt, but they will succeed.
