In addition to the convention proceedings, the Association will give  handsome prizes for a fruit exhibit,  divided into three classes.  The first class is for best five boxes  of apples, and the prizes in this will be  $100, .$50 and $25. The second class is  for the best stand of fresh fruit 5 x 5  feet and 10 feet high. The meaning of  this is not-overly clear. Under this  name the Similkameen would be disposed to make a showing of fresh  strawberries, peaches, plums, pears,  almonds, grapes, &c, but the fruitgrowers in this valley elon't feel as if  they could do justice to themselves in  these varieties during the closing days  of November.  Tin- third class is for the best box of  commercial apples.  In addition tei the exhibit made by  the Farmers' Exchange, Mr. Richter  witl make a private exhibit, ami judging from the success which attended  his efforts at the Westminster fair,  this valley should pull some honors  out of the affair.  The Rossland Miner expresses the  regret felt in that town at the removal of Rev. Cleland to Penticton.  Mr. Cleland was very popular in Ross-  land, anel the people of Penticton are  Iuckv in securing him.  The report e>f the department of Indian affairs is to hand, and as this is a,  subject that interests materially the  people of this district, we reproduce  parts of the report made, by Indian  Agent A. Irwin, of the Kamloops-Ok-  auagan agency, dealing with the reservations of the Similkameen and lower  Okanagan, embracing 'the Similkameen, Osoyoos and Penticton bands. <  ; This is a subject to which the Gazette  has given a great deal of attention at  intervals during the past year, and it  will not be necessary here to present  again any of the arguments already  put forward feu- dealing with the whole  subject of Indian affairs in a way to  promote the advancement of the  country.  There are, however, a few points to  which attention should be called concerning the report issued by Minister  Frank Oliver, who as Minister of the  Interior, is superintendent general of  Indian affairs. That gentleman has  been blamed for a too vigorous use of  the blue, pencil in expurgating matter  from public reports, that dieln't suit  his fancy ; and compared with the reports issued years ago by the department of Indian affairs, the details  given are now rather meagre. Years  ago these annual reports showed how  many acres each band, and individual  Indians thereof, cultivated each year,  and the number eif bushels of various  cereals, tons of hay, &c, which he  grew, but that information is no longer forthcoming. This is to be regretted as it is a vital point, bearing upon  a business re-adjustment of the whole  question of Indian reservations.  Another point about the report is  the population shown. That for the  reservations on the Similkameen between Princeton and the United States  boundary is given officially at 181, as  stated in the Gazette a few weeks ago.  It hael been stated that the official figures setting forth the Indian population we're incorrect, and that this was  due to the fact that the enumerators  were fooleel by having Indians from  Washington State come in to be counted. An enumeration made three  months ago accounted for only 140  Indians between Princeton anil the  boundary line instead of the official  number 181. Taking 1-10 as the correct  population it would give a per capita  holding eif 183.-1 acres, instead of 141  acres as shown by the official figures.  Anel fen- Osoyoos and Penticton hands,  allowing the official figures of these to  he correct, it shows the per capita  holding of Osoyoos Indians to be 494.8  acres, anel Penticton 300.2 acres.

HENRY,  3010 Westminster Road,       Vancouver.  King Ke-nnedy, ventriloquist and  conjurer, who gave an entertainment  two years ago, will be in Heclley on  Dee-ember 5th. Formerly he varied  his ventriloquial anel trick performances with gooel gi-ainaphone selections, and this time he has added to  his programme, moving pictures by  one of the latest improved machines  which it is claimed has overcome all  thai jumping effect on the screen  which spoiled the appearance of some  of the best pictures. His hand-bills  anel posters give in more detail the  character of the entertainment.  OHOYOOS   HAND  (NKAMII').  Reserve's.���������The reserves of this band,  two in number, are located at the head  of Osoyoos lake and at the foot of Dog  lake. The area is 32,108 acres; some  fruit-raising, but mostly farming anel  grazing lands.  Population.���������The population of this  hand is 05.  Health and Sanitation.���������No epidemic  has appeared. Their houses are clean,  and other sanitary conditions ai-e good.  They have been vaccinated.  Occupations.���������They grow cereals,  vegetables and fruit, and raise; stock;  they fish and hunt, anel work as  la.horcrs.  Buildings.���������Their recent buildings  show a elecided improvement on the  older, anel poorer, log buildings.  Stock.���������They have a number of fair  horses and cattle.  Farm Implements.��������� They are well  supplieel with implements.  Education.���������There are no schools.  Characteristics and progress.���������These  Indians are fairly industrious. The  fruit they raise finds a ready market.  They are law-abiding.  When the mountain wouldn't come  to Mohammed  he decided to make a  friendly call on the mountain.   In like  manner,  when the dusky fair Pauline  wouldn't come to Hedley, a dozen or  so of Hedley went to Pauline,  who,  with Walter McRaye,  gave an entertainment in Keremeos on   Saturday  night last under the auspices of the  Similkameen    Farmer's     Exchange.  Many  had heard her before, and her  repertoire has not changed very much.  Nevertheless, it bears repetition, for  the. various numbers hael literary merit.     She does not lay any  claim  to  elocutionary  art,   but as an   author  she has proven her skill.   She  is an  Indian,   anel   proud  of   her   Mohawk  blood;   anel  Canadians   knowing   the  history of this  young country  anel its  struggles for British supremacy can  share  with  her the pride of that race  which gave  to Canadian  history  the  names of heroes like Brant and Tecum-  seh, who  fought shoulder tei shoulder  with  the Canadian settlers.      These,  aideel with a mere handful of British  regulars anel their Indian allies, defended  their homes in   the   war of  TS12,  winning success after success until the  close  of the  war found neit a single  American   soldier   on   Canadian   soil  when  the treaty of peace was signed,  except as a prisoner of war,  while Detroit,   Machilimuckinae   and half the  state of Michigan was held by the Canadians, to be handed back by the terms  of the treaty.     This  may seem  a digression but it is merely to explain the  intense Canadian sentiment to be founel  in the   writings of Pauline Johnson.  Her companion, Walter McRaye,  recites largely from the writings  of the  late Dr. Drumiuonel and interprets admirably the  sentiments of that fine  large-hearted Canadian writer, except,  perhaps, that he lacked somewhat the  vivacity of the typical habitant.    Altogether the entertainment was a most  enjoyable one.  Phoenix, Nov. 12.���������Like a bolt from  the bine to the Boundary came the  news last night that all of the large  mines and smelters of this section had  decided to immediately discontinue eip-  erations of all kinds completely, and  orders to this end wore immediately  put into effect by the several mine and.  smelter managements operating in,  the. district.  Yesterday morning about 100 men  were let out at the Gran by \s Gold Dreip  mine, a property in the large group*  but operated independently in .some-  respects. Last night most e>f the rest  of the 500 men employed at the Granby  mines property were told not to come ,  to work, and the same thing occurred  at the Snowshoe mine in this camp.  The Dominion Copper Co.'s mines have  been closed for three --or--four weeks.  Reports from the B. C. Copper mines-  are to the same effect and it is also reported that the mines at Rossland  have likewise discontinued operations  entirely.  For the first time in ten years, except during the coke shorage last May  no whistles were heart! in this camp  since last night, and probably will not  be heard for a while to come, from all  indications.  No explanations are forthcoming as  yet as to the cause of tln> close down.  Only a few men are at work at the different mines and they are. cleaning up,  putting away tool, draining pipe lines  and in general preparing for making  machinery, etc., in shape for idleness  for some time. Duriug the night the  last ore was crushed and loaded into  the railway dumps, and to-day the last  trains of ore are being taken out. No  one appears to know how long the  close down will last. Yesterday was  pay day for October in this camp, and  with the 11 days now to be paid for,  about $100,000 is the sum total of the  wages paid out in Phoenix this week.  PUSHING   CONSTRUCTION.  The Working   Force   Increasing   Each  Week ��������� More  Horses   Expected   Shortly.  Considering the force which has  been working substantial progress has  been made on the V. V. ik E. grades  between here anel Ke-nuneos.  At No. 1 camp, where the greater  number of men have been employed,  there has been a good show niaele both  in completion of considerable! portions  of the grade and in preparation for the  steam shovel which has been at Keremeos for several,weeks awaiting horses  te) haul away the dirt. Trestling has  been put in for the dump along the  river above Webster's ferry and the  grade on the lemg flat above is almost  completed. Preparations are being  made for putting in temporary bridge  to take the shovel across the river on  completion of the cut iie-ar the ferry.  Across the river a gang is at work in  a cut opposite the elitch camp. The  clearing of right of way is also well  advanced.  Above Ashnola creek the' right of  way has been clearenl from the point,  where the track re-crosses the river,  up to and along the greater part of  brushy bottom.  From Squakim's up to Ile-elley grading is in progress iii six or seven elif-  ferent places, anel No. 2 camp opposite  the mission is pretty well fixed up for  the winter. Stables are being completed fen- the horses.  Work on the rock cut is in progress. THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   NOVEMBER 21,    1907.  Similkameen Advertiser.

When the Quebec bridge:  we-iit deswn, effort was made to show  that the engineers were blameless, anel  to some inscrutable slip of providence  was eliu- tin- calamity that hael befallen,  but later on they find that it was the  engineers who had flown in the: face  of preividenee by asking materials to  do vastly greater duty than they had  ever been required to do before.  Last week   over   in   the   Boundary  District, a serious state of affairs came  like a thunderclap when   the smelters  anel mint's shut down with  only a few  bonis' warning   and   over   2000   men  we're* thrown out of employment.   The  reason advanesed fen- the  disaster anel  given out by   company   officials   was  the low price   of   copper, but   advices  from the Boundary  where the occurrence spells  ruin   to   tradesmen, indicate that while this reason  played a  prominent part in   bunging  it about,  the*re were other causes that weighed  still more.     The   self-fluxing   ores   eif  the Boundary enabled smelting to be  done at very low ceist,  and   the  large  bodies of ore that could  be  extracted  by epiarrying from glory boles cheapened the cost of   mining   to   such   an  extent that cupper wasprotlueeel there  at a minimum ceist.    Furthermore the  mini's and smelters of the  Boundary  lind  formerly operatt.-d  when   copper  was as cheap as now with   no  suggestion of the intention of closing down.  There   was   this  difference,    however,  between then and now anel   that   was  the- lowt-r wage* scale in force and longer hours eif labor.    Neither  was   there  then in existence the Lemieux Act   to  lay penalties upon mine-owners. With  the increase in the wage seialts granted  in Butte   when   copper   was   soaring  Boundary  mine-owners   we-re obliged  to give the- same   and   the  agreement  affected   between employers and eiu-  pleiyed when   the  increase  was given  did not specify any particular standard  price of copper above- or be-low  which  the high   or low scale,  was  to obtain.  When copper slumped  below the  IS  cent mark agrer-el upon   in   Butte and  bad been below that a few  weeks the  Butte   mine-owners called  for an  observance  of the   strict   terms   of   the-  agreement on the part of  the miners'  union, and   that body honorably decided to abide by their ugre-einenl and  accept the- old   wage   scale,   even   al-  a coal 'company in the Crowsnest nta  most inopportune time ran up against  one of the edaiises of the Leiuit.-iix Act  'which le-t them in for a  fine- anel   that  penalty goes to'a  maximum  of $1000  per day or part of a day that a lockout  continues.    The miners'   unions in the  Boundary are also unfortunately creel-  ite-d with taking a vote-on tlieepiestion  of acceptance or non-acceptiince of the  reduced Butte scale and   arc   said' to  liave decided not to  accept it,   taking  advantage of the technicality that no  IS cent stipulation   or1 condition   had  lie-en entered into on their part.r This  appears to have  been   the last straw  which broke the employers' hacks and  a general  shutdown of'all  the  works  of the Granby, B. C. Copper and Dominion Copper'came with appalling suddenness.    Why  this should occur in  this sudden   manner   before   negotiations were opened.up between employers and employees and for reasons alleged which made no mention of wage  scale-,   can   easily   be   understood   by  those who will read  carefully the penalty anel interpretation clauses of  the  Lemieux Act ;/and especially so after-  that coal company hael been fnieel anel  the' Bounelary   unions   hael   indicated  probable opposition   to following  the  lead of Butte miners for acceptance of  reduction as they had  before followed  it for demand of increase.     With  the  penalizing of that coal  company  and  the rumors of hostility in   the: Bounelary   unions  there seemed no alternative for the. companies than  to elo  as  they did, and the only apparent thing  which cou'lel have averted the disaster  woulel have,  been   for   the   Boundary  unions te> have grasped the situation  anel done beforediand what some employees expressed a willingness to elo  after the shutdown occurred, and that  is to follow the lead  of the Butte miners in acccepting the old scale.     Why  the companies could not afford to take  the risk of making any advances for  reaeijustment of wage, scale to meet  altered conditions in the  copper market   is very plain to   those   who   will  carefullv note the requirements of the  Lemieux Act, anel  it  is  strange  that  the unions did not see it in time.  As for the Lemieux Act itself it appears now to have had the effect of  precipitating the very condition of  things which it was intended to prevent. It is clearly an act that should  never have, been passed until preceded  by preparatory legislation compelling  labor organizations te> incorporate.  Certificate of Improvements.

This gentleman was hiiusi'lf an eyi'-witness of a  most startling experience which befell  a friend of his a few days ago in Spokane*, ft seems that the man deposited the sum of $2000 in a well-known  Spokane bank for safe-keeping for a  couple of days.'and upon his calling to  withdraw his deposit was blandly in-  formerl by the hanker that he was not  paying out any money until the present financial crisis was over, but  stated that the bank would have a.  clearance house receipt issued for the  amount of his deposit, and he was in-  forined that he could raise money on  bis clearance house paper.  Upon receiving this clearance house  receipt the- unfortunate man w;is utterly unable to raise a. dollar on it and  was forced to borrow $10 f 10111 a friend  in order to travel to his home some  distance from Spokane, although he  hael just eleposited a large sum of  money, ft is stated that goods and  provisions will be supplied in Spokane  on a clearance house receipt, but that  they are not good for any cash.
