"' -        .-  In the description of the property  given in the issue of March 5th, it was  shown that the work which has been  under w������iy since the beginning of the  -year, was confined to the Martin claim,  and that the other three claims of the  group were neitat present receiving  any attention, although on one of  them, the Maple Leaf, the ore body  showed up stronger even than on the  Martin, and the values about as good.  The-reason, howeyer, for concentrating work on the Martin, is quite apparent, for,- owing to itsconvenient  location, it will be much easier and  cheaper to begin extraction, and thus  realize from the ore on the Martin  than from the ore bodies on the claim  higher up.  Tw.o tunnels had been driven into  the hill-side on our last visit to the  property, each encountering  a good  strong ledge.   The No. 1  tunnel was  driven over GO feet, and at this point  they did not cut through to the dyke  beyond the hanging wall, but in No. 2  tunnel, which was driven a little over  50 feet, the vein was encountered at 35  feet and,showed 14 feet in width before  the hanging" wall was reached and the  upper dyke cut into.  . New work done in the interval was  the driving of three other tunnels into  the steep hillside each of them cutting  the vein and each of them showing its  continuity oh the line of strike southward.   No. 3 tunnel, which was begun,  about the first of March,  was driven  about 30 feet of which 10 feet was in  cross-cutting the ledge.   The ore here  was of an exceedingly, friable nature  and panned well, making .it an ideal  milling proposition, for. the duty per  stamp would of. necessity be exceedingly high.  In No. 4 tunnel, still farther to the  south, the tunnel had been started  nearer the outcrop (although it is  scarcely in order to speak of outcrop  where the whole hillside has so deep a  coating of wash), for in a very few feet  the ore body was again encountered,  showing a width of over ten feet and  also an improvement in the character  of the vein filling. Here, too, it seemed surprising how easy it was to find  visible free gold. Almost anywhere  along the tunnel where the ore body  was being cut, the quart/, on being  broken would show visible free gold.  No. 6 tunnel which w;is started much  farther down the hillside anel  is fitted  with track for the use of ore   ears,  takes on  more  the  appearance of a  mine."   This tunnel was started about  the middle of March and is now  in  about 115 feet.    Last week a dyke was  encountered very similar in character  to that which has generally been found  to  constitute  the foot-wall,  and succeeding it Avas about 3 feet of quartz  .well-mineralized    with    arsenopyrite.  Whether this be the main vein or not,  further   development   will   serve   to  show.   Some think it is not, and give  very good reason forholding this eipin-  ion.   This reason is based ou what was  learned from sinking the shafts on the  furthest point north where attempt  was  made to explore the  ore  body.  The chai-acter of the ore cut by this  lower tunnel resembles more closely  that taken from  the shaft,  than that  of the larger ore bodies cut in the upper tunnels .-,nd found to lie between  the two dykes.   Furthermore it has  been found on a closer examination of  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., is back  from the Coast, bringing Mrs. Shut-  ford and family with him.  L. H. Plummet*, teller at the local  branch of the Bank of Commerce/has  been transferred te> the Coast.  Some very fine fish have been caught  in the lake this season, < several fish  weighing from ten to fifteen pounds  being brought in.  The next social event of any importance is the "At Home" te> be given  by the Tennis Club on Monday the  18th.    This should pre>ve quite a draw.  The daily boat service will probably  start.in about three weeks' time, when  it'is expected that the S. S. Aberdeen  will be finished and able tei carry  freight. '       l  A large party of C. P. R. e)fficials  came down on the Okanagan on Monday to enquire-about shipments of  fruit &c. in the future. They also  took a look at the wharf. Among the  party were Messrs Kilpalrick, Bustead  .'Vnd Capt. Gore.  On the 30th ult., Penticton was besieged by visitors from up the lake  points; the. S. S. Okanagan 'making a  special trip, Kelowna being represented by nearly two hundred of her citizens. A stranger would probably have  thought there was a boom on.  The cause of all the visitors coming  to this end of the lake was the production of "H. M. S. Pinafore" by the  Kelowna Amateur Dramatic Company  in aid of -the new Kelowna hospital.  The performance preived a huge success and drew the largest crowd together that has ever assembled in  Steward's fine hall. When I mention  the fact that $247.75 was netted from  the sale of tickets it only shows that  Penticton is always ready to back up  a good show when it comes along.  L M. Stevens nearly .lost his home  ou Sunday. During his"absence in  the afternoon passers by nejticed  smoke, and on going to see the,cause  found the kitchen ablaze. The fire  was eventually put out, but not before  $300 dollars damage had " been done.  It is lucky there was no wind at the  time, or about the best house in Penticton would now be a thing .of the  past.  The last ball of the season, given by  the Penticton Quadrille Club, came oft-  last Wednesday, the 29th, and like its  predecessor was a huge success, both  financially and socially. Much credit  is due the president and committee of  the quadrille club for the way in which  they have carried out their program.  This is the first time on record here  that a quadrille club lias been able to  finish a season successfully.  Two or three, weeks ago a- rather  weird looking arrangement was erected at the corner of Main and Smith  streets. This was nothing less thkn a.  large cross with a sort of a miniature  band stand at the foot. When it was  first put up, people were beard making  bets about what it was intended to be.  At last the report was circulated that  it was built to hang a fire alarm gong  on. Whilst wending my way down  town one day last week I was surprised  to see a fresh addition tf> the cross in  the shape e>f an old and rusty circular  saw. I thought at first that perhaps  this was an advertisement for Smith's  whose lumber yard is close byr but  found on making further enquiry that  the old saw was going to be of a little  more use to the world by becoming  the. alarm for the Penticton Fire Brigade.  ALLEGED   RAILWAY BETRAYAL  Concluding  Part of the Saturday Sun-  ,   set's Charges.  (Continued from last week.)  At the next session  after that elec-  tiein,  Tenipleman   and   Duncan Ross  took a special trip to New York to see  J. J. Hill, and spent the better part of  two days in  consultation, with him.  At that time Hill was asking for a  renewal- of his V. V. <fc E. charter at  Ottawa,  with  power to cross and re-  cross the international boundary, but  as lie had made no arrangement with  McLean Bros., who cemtrolled the V.  & C. K. R. charter,  and as he knew  that the Brilish Columbia members in  the Federal House were' pledged  to  support the all British Columbia line,  he saw that he  mubt' gain- control of  the British ' Columbia members iti e>r-  der to be successful;  consequently he  made seinie arrangement with Temple-  man and Duncan. Ross by which they  agreed to deliver to him the necessary  support.    Hill's proposal was to build  a  road  without a subsidy.    He did  NOT PROMISE TO BU1T.D TO THE COAST,  and so far as,is known no responsible  representative of his has ever either  verbally ov eitherwise promised to do so.  Moreover the resolutions of the  Beiarels of Trade of Victe>ria, Vancouver, New. Westminster and Chilliwack,  sent to Ottawa asking that some tan-  M. & V.  NOT   DEAD   YET.  C. P.  R. Now Reported Willing to Take  Over Charter on Certain  Conditions.  Continuod on Page Four.  Volume 1, No. 2 of the Missiemary  Arena, published at Sumrnerland, by  Rev A. T. Robinson, is to hand. As  its name implies, the Arena is devoted  to the. discussion e>f missionary items,  and on its front cover are the words  "Interdenominational" "Evangelical,"  "Inspirational," which are evidently  intended te> serve as its platform.  Typographically, at all events, the  Arena is manifestly orthodox, and te>  avoid qualifying as a subject for mis-  siemary treatment from the Arena,  the Gazette is willing to accept the  matter as being likewise. The starting of a religious magazine sets up a  new mile post in the history of journalism in the interior. The Gazette  welcomes the Arena to the little but  ever-growing family.  gible'guarantee be given by Hill that  he would build the road through southern British Columbia to the Coast  within a reasonable time, were completely ignored by the British Columbia members, who fought bitterly  against an amendment. which was  moved in the Railway Cennmittee, to  that effect.  Immediately upon the return of Ross  and Tenipleman te> Ottawa they called  upon Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and whatever were the reasons put forward, he  was won over to the Hill interests.  Then followed one of the bitterest  and most spectacular fights ever witnessed in the Railway Committee.   It  shonlel  have   been   a   three-cornered  fight, Hill-fighting fen- the  renewal of  the V.V. & E. charter, and with it the  trade of the finest undeveloped  territory in British Columbia���������a detail in  his raid on Canada.   The C. P. R. was  on hand to prevent a repetition of the  Crow's Nest raid,  but McLean Bros.,  relying   upon,  the   British   Columbia  members to implement their promises  to amalgamate the interests of the two  charters, said nothing,  and so far as  their interests and those of the province were involved they were betrayed  coldly and dastardly by the solid seven,  with Ross and   Tenipleman   leading.  Mr. John  Hendry,  British Columbia  agent for the Hill interests, his.lieutenant,  Robt. Jardine,  today the Liberal  nominee for New Westminster,  were  there to direct the fight from their side.  Templeman's paper in   Victoria announced in scare head lines that McLean Bros, were thrown down.  It was  passed out to the country that the C.  P. R. was putting up the fight against  the renewal of the charter.  Perhaps it  was, and it is a pity it did not succeed,  for a grosser robbery of British  trade  and territory can be found only in the  cone:essie)tis  of  British   diplomacy  to  United States cupidity.  Duncan Ross told the committee the  line would lie built in eighteen months.  That was three years ago. It was said  ���������and present'day conditions point to  the truth of the assertiem���������that Hill  would turn the line down the Skagit  into Everett. Ross said that divide  was 6,000 feet high and physically impossible tei scale with a railway. Every man who has been in the country  knows this is sheer nonsense.  What has the V. V. & E. done in  three years? Of the 300 miles of the  line it has not built 50 miles in Canada.  1 challenge Duncan Ross to state the.  time when it will have built 100 miles.  I further challenge him to produce  one tittle of evidence to show that the  V. V. & E. will ever be built to this  coast-  On the other hand, the evidences  multiply to show that it will never be  built to the Coast, that it will be just  what Jim Hill said in the fall of 1902  it would be, a feeder to the Great Northern, a tonnage producer for his  United States rond. Only this week  the press announced that the V.V. & E.  Through thi1 district the- feeling is  gaining ground that the Midway anel  Vernon road, or at all events a- considerable portion of it may be built in the  near future.  The holders of the charter have as a  last*resort again approached the C. P.  R. to take it.over and begin building.  They are even" willing to have the ���������  charter changed to suit the wishes of  the C. P. R. provided that the; federal -  and provincial governments will agree  to sanction the change and allow the  subsidies-to stand.  The change demanded by the C.P.R.  is to������alIe>\v the road to be diverted so  as to make Penticton the objective  ,point instead of Vernon. Jt is' well-  known that the C. P. R. place ne> value  on the portion of the M..&V. route  between the headwaters of the West  Fork of 'Kettle River a'nd Vernon be:  cause they already have all the business and are now handling it by means  of their boats on Okanagan lake. But  there is business for them up the main  Kettle River and the West Fork, that  they want, and besides they want a  short direct haul between the Okanagan and the Boundary which they  would secure if the terminal .of the M.  & V- be diverted from Vernon to Pen-  ticton.  Eight yeais ago the C. P. R. engineers located a line* from Mielway to  Penticton covering the greater part of  the route of the M. & V. This surveyed route, laid out by O'Dell, a C. P. R.  engineer, kept-the valley of the main  Kettle to Westbridge, after which it  went up the West Fork through Beav-  erdell to the the mouth of Wilkinson  creek about six or seven miles north of  Beaverdell, and going westward up  Wilkinson creek the summit of the  range between the Kettle River and  the Okanagan was crossed and the  descent into the Okanagan made by ii  series of loops. i .  The change of terminal will likely  be fought hard by Vernon, but a* it  now appears to be a case of " build it  to Penticton or-not at all," it is difficult  to see what good it would do Vernon  to kill the whole enterprise by refusing the change. .  The Greenwood Ledge, speaking of  it, says: "It is generally believed that .  work will be resumed on the Midway  and Vernon railway early this season.  The road will be built up the West  Fork of Kettle river to near the head  of Wilkinson creek, then down to  Penticton. This will give the C. P. R.  a direct line between the Boundary ���������'-  and Upper Okanagan."  For several months Greenwood has  had no strikes or shortage of coke.  Harmony reigns supreme in the Camp.  ���������Ledge.  had filed plans with the Washington  Government of a line from Wenatchee  to the S. I. Railway���������a Hill line���������  which will be the precise funnel  through which the freight of the V.V.  & E. will run out of the Similkameen  into Seattle and Spokane.  No, the V. V. <fc E. is neit building up  the Fraser.     What it has done was  simply  tei use its charter to build to  Abbotsford to give the Northern Pacific a" Jine independent of that of the  C. P. R. from Sumas, Wash.   The Hill  roads  are not building lines through^  British Columbia nor any other part of  Canada   to  any   Canadian   terminal.  Hill's policy is to feed Hill's own main  line,  notwithstanding the hot air,he  has peddled in this country during the  past two   years   about   trans-prairie-  trans-monntain lines.     Look   at   the  branch lines stretching like the tentacles of a cnt-tle. fish up from his main  line to and across the Canadian border.  Hill is no friend e>f Canada;   his utterances   prove it even   if   his   railway  policy did not.  [ The balance of the article is a wail  that Similkameen trade will all go to  Spokane and Seattle instead of to  Vancouver, but there is ne> word of  condemnation of the policy which kept  the Similkameen out of a railway  until J. J. Hill was induced to come to  our relief.���������Ed.] THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   MAY 7, 1008.  . 4k '1t&$m $mi&  and  SUmilkameeiv Advertiser,.

At various times the Gazette  has taken up "tlie question of  Indian reservations and endeavored to show the injury being-  done the whole province aud  this .. district in particular  through the present very "Unsatisfactory basis upon which the  whole matter rests. A few days,  ago tlie matter, was brought  home very forcibly to residents  farther down the valley 'when  Ashnola John again marshalled  his people and ribbed them up  to block any settlement being  made with the Keremeos Land  Co. for right of way over Indian  lands for their water ditch.  The only satisfaction that the  Land Co. could obtain concerning the matter was that they  might take the matter up with  the ludian Department at Ottawa, the Indian agent having  practically admitted his inability to procure them the right to  build.  This should be made a test  case between the province and  the dominion and fought out to  the last ditch .(no pun, it's too  serious). The province of British Columbia owns the water in  Ashnola "creek and they have  sold   a  portion  of it under the  has suggested the method employed, with so good effect in  certain portions of the province  of Ontario, where the Indians  wore induced to turn over certain lands to the federal government which that body agreed  to sell for them and put .the  proceeds into an Indian fund  upon which the Indians were  paid the'-interest quarterly/the  papooses sharing equally with  the grown-ups, which cut off all  incentive for; race suicide.  Now it is pretty generally understood that the .present federal government has assumed a  'haughty hostile attitude and  ihas even made threats through  some of its B. C. members (and  among them we believe Mr.  Ross, but are not positive of  this latter), that no more 'eon-  cessions on Indian lands would  be sanctioned at Ottawa until  the people of B.C. elected a  Liberal government to rule at  Victoria. Mr. R. L. Borden, on  the other hand, when at Grand  'Forks last September, discussed  tlie matter briefly, and in doing  so expressed his inability to see  any -reasonable .objection that  could be'"urged against -following-the. plan of selling the excess  land now held by the Indians  over what was intended as the  originalallotment and employing the proceeds "for the use  and benefit of the Indians."

Please  On the.  way  tei the Pollock  mines  last week the Gazette had a look over  the ranch of G. B. Lyon which .is situated about two miles or a little more  up the river.    Mr. Lyon has about. -12  acres of ground that a couple of years  ago   wiseacres were- disposed  to  call  worthless,    with   the   exception, of a  stretch of river flat of about seven or  eight acres, at the  bottom.   The balance of it was made up of one of those  fan-shaped deltas,  liberally   supplied  with cactus, and se>  hard -that where  a wagon road is made across it without any making being required except  to drive over it,  the road bed soon  wears so hard   and smooth  that  no  other road   metal    is   ever   required.  This very   laud,' however,  has   been  proven to be the very best- when  it is  irrigated and   cultivated.    Last year  Mr. Lyon had tTie river flat broken up  anel planted in  potatoes,  and got an  enormous crop therefrom.    This year  the flat is again put in crop and in addition a field is blocked out on the lower part of the bench, and is in crop.  An interesting feature, is the method  which he has taken of irrigating.  This is done by means of a hydraulic  ram which is working to perfection,  throwing a good stream of river water  up on the bench about 500 feet distant  and some 37 feet higher! This works  constantly every minute in the 2-1  hours and requires absolutely .no at-  tention. When more Ol'.-his land is  brought under cultivation requiring a  greater volume of water than the present rani will supply, he can place another alongside of it and thus double  the capacity.  It is Mr. Lyon's intention to set emt  a good large orchards in fruit trees, and  he is also going strong into the raising  of garden vegetables. To this end ho  has put in a he>t house, so as to be able  to supply vegetables early enough to  come in for the best prices.   .  NOTICE.

POLLOCK STRIKES GOOD ORE  Continued'from First Page.  . the; country rook in the vicinity of the  -shafts, that two parallel  dykes which  are presumably northern extensions of  those found  to enclose   the  ore  body  where it-has been  encountered in the  upper tunnels, both p"ass by the shafts  ou the upper side.    From   this  it may  very reasonably be inferred  that the  vein.sheiwing in the shafts is a, smaller  one running parallel and lying to the  east of the larger ore  body  shown  in  the  tunnels and may be the identical  three; foot ledge of  highly.mineralized  quart/, just, cut in  the  lower tunnel  with whieh it conforms more nearly in  size as well  as  in  character.    As  for  "     the dyke  encountered   in   the   lower  tunnel' and forming.,the foot wall of  the vein which was met, it is. not at all  improbable, that where the upper tunnels  were   run   this  dyke   had   been  eroded off."   Should this No. 5 tunnel  be pushed in some distance further, as  we understand it is their intention to  do, there' is every encouragement that  another '.good...ore  body   will   lie met  which  will, conform  more   nearly  in  size and character with thatsee'1.1 above,  in the other tunnels.    This in any case  ���������would be good mining policy for'if, as  has been contended on eininentiintbor-  ity that the monzonite is primarily responsible- for the mineral values, and  from the monzonite  they have  been  carried,   in   solution   to   be   arrested  against impervious..barriers like eruptive dykes  thus-forming'ore  bodies,,  the fact, thatthe .monzonite  lies   in  mass above them  should  afford every  encouragement to peg on ahead.  If, however, this should prove to be  the vein they'.'we're 'looking for, it is  good enough in itself for exploitation  when there is every evidence that it  will widen when drifted on^ or when  ��������� followed downward by' a shaft or  winze, and is sure to widen to much  larger proportions in an up-raise. Thus  it will be seen that development of the  deposit.'or deposits on the Martin  claim has reached a most interesting  stage and not least among its interesting features is the commercial end,  "which offers'a very blight outlook indeed for successful operation with a  small outlay for necessary equipment.  At present No. 5 tunnel is in toe) far  to continue-work much longer without,  making provision to take care of the  powder smoke, and relief from this  hindrance will likely be sought by running an up-raise to the surface.  Altogether the result of the development this year has been very satisfactory and the road to easy street has  already been blazed a considerable  portion of the way. With the advantages in situation which the Pollock  enjoys over theinajority of other budding mines, the odds in their favor is  such that even now they would be  justified in making arrangements .to'  enable them to realize from the large  amount of surface ore now in sight.  Haifa mile of aerial tramway is all that  would be necessary to convey ore from  the surface showings on the Martin  and deliver it at the foot of the hill  where workmen are now clearing off  the. light of way for the railway ; and  as this is also on the bank of the Similkameen river it is the proper place  for a mill. The saving effected both in  the cost of installing aerial tramway  and mill and in operation of the plant,  because of convenience to the railway,  would help to swell the profits, and,  should the ore supply ever run short,  the depreciation in the plant would be  small in comparison with what it  would be if the railway were 30 or 40  miles away.  Should the. company offer another  block of stock to the public it should  command a. ready sale at a fair selling  price, for here at all events the buyer  eif mining stock would get a decent  run for his money.
