HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  OLIVER & GLADDEN  It has long, been the intention of  Similkaineen's representative, Mr. L.  W. Shatford, to have his constituency  visited by Premier McBride. and other  members of the Government, and this  week, the tryst has been fulfilled, for  tho Premier and Hon. R. F.' Green,  Chief Commissioner of Lands and  Works, after an extended tour through  the Kootenays and Boundary, arrived  in Hedley.  They left Midway on Sunday, reaching Gillespie's, on Anarchist Mountain,  on Sunday night, and on Monday they  proceeded to Fairview where they wore  joined by Mr. Shatford, and after!  luncheon proceeded to Keremeos.  At .Keremeos a public; meeting was  held in the school-house, which was  presided over by Mr. A.C. Stoess. Addresses were, delivered by the Premier  and Messrs. Green and Shatford, to a.  well-filled house. A pleasing feature  of the Keremeos visit was th6 complimentary banquet given in their honor  at the Central Hotel by Mr. Reith, after which they took advantage of the  moonlight and drove on to Hedley,  arriving at 3' o'clock in the morning.  Thus in the one day they covered the  entire distance from Anarchist,Mountain .to Hedley, and took in a public  meeting and banquet.  At Hedlev  the. people were surprised next morn  ing, to   find   thein  registered  at  the  :0:  Civil 8c Mining" Engineers  MINESand  REAL   ESTATE  'HEDLEY, B.C.  Hotel Similkameen.  On. Tuesday afternoon a visit was  made to the. Daly Reduotion Co.'s  office where Mr. Shatford had arranged before hand to give the party'a' trip  up to  the Nickel Plate mine, and Mr,  pany, and Mr. R. B. Lamb, general  C. A. Crawford, secretary of the corn-  manager, spared no pains to afford  every facility for making the. trip and  were most solicitous for the safety and.  comfort of their guests. The small  skip ori the short trainway to the tipple was used' to .transport the party to  the lower end of the graA-ity tramway.  Mr. Lamb personally superintended  the embarkation and gave- orders by  phone both to the middle! station and  ore bins as to the rate of speeding and  of the skips, as 'well  out to members  of   the  splendid attendance.    He had assured  the Premier that the people of Simil-  kaineen would be glad to have'an opportunity of  meeting him,   but   the  attendance had exceeded his expectation.   Ho, gave a review of the legislation and claimed that the balance sheet  presented to the people of British Columbia, in  which rigid economy was  shown, was ample -evidence that  the  proviuce now had a  business "government; which recognized that the first  principle of economics was to keep the  expenditure within the revenue,  and  this  they  had done. ��������� To hring order  out of chaos they had been  obliged to  frame a new assessment act. and while  the act that was introduced in the first  session was far from being what they  would all have liked to have,-and had  been subject to much adverse criticism  he was pleased to say that it had been  amended in a manner to cut out the  more objectionable features.    Among  the changes were reductions in personal property, coal and timber lands and  wild lands, the last 'mentioned, which  had  been placed at 5%, reduced .to-l-%.  Reductions had been made where possible,- but as revenue.was a necessity  the act in the main was right, and permitted of re-opening of any particular  section.   The exemption   clauses were  dealt with in detail,  and the act as n  whole would work, no hardship on any  important industry.     The now School  Act had been subjected.to much criticism,   but as  if became  better understood the opposition had died out- The  old paternal system, which was practicable; and necessary many years ago,  had  increased the cost until it had bo-  come a heavy burden on the treasury.  Now a   small  portion   of  the cost of  maintenance, had been   placed on   the  school    districts.      The   Government  would pay $-180 of the teacher's'salary  and 50 per cent, of  the  balance,   incidental expenses having to be borne by  the district.'   He had himself at first  been opposed to some of the requirements of the new-.ac.tj but had to admit  that they were necessary and  in  the'  best interests of the province.    As. for  his own district, he and the companies  that he represented would have to bear  three-fourths of the increased amount  thrown on the people.   The new game  act and appointment of game wardens  was shown to be a  business measure.  The enactment of anti-Chinese legislation 'was dealt with and the determination to re-enact expressed. The act to  tax commercial travellers for eastern  houses he defended.   ' ���������  In the matter of appropriations for  roads he had as the representative of  the Similka'meen obtained more for  roads than the district had ever before  received and more than any other rid-  that time  in giving a handsome ma-i    V. V. & E. WINS FROM C.'P. R.  ing in the province had received.    The  A. MEG RAW  Notary Public  Conveyancer. Real Estate, Mines,  Insurance, Crown Grants applied  for under Land Act and  Mineral     Act.  Agent for: ���������  The Mutual Life Assurance Co. of Canada,  London & Lancashire Fire Insurance Co.,  The Ocean Accident & Guarantee Co.  handling  point  government had decided on a system  of rigid economy which made them  discontinue the construction of neAV  roads, but nevertheless he had succeeded in having the West Fork road,  the road to Copper Mountain and the  as to | Bear Creek road built. He would  party i never be satisfied until lie had obtained  what to do in case of accident, an attention Avhich the Premier and party  duly appreciated. The party were  sent up in two sections. Mr. Crawford  accompanying the Premier and Mr.  Green on the first and .Mr. Shatford  and the Gazette taking the next. On  arrival at the ore bins one of the  motors  on the clectiac   line was wait-'  j a road to connect Hedley with Nickel  | Plate Mountain and the camps sur-  ! rouudiug.it. Instead of such a road  j being a cost to the province it would  | be a source of revenue���������a business pro-  ; position from which the Government  j would  derive  $5   for every dollar it  i would   cost.      Besides  Hedlev  had a  i *���������  ! special claim on the Government.    He  jority to his candidate, Mr. Seinlin.  But he had again to thank them for  giving him Mr. Shatford for the present representative, for in him they  had one of whom it could truthfully  be said that there was no better in the  House.  The.bye-elections were referred to as  ample endorsement of the course  which his Government had pursued.  In   its   jurisdiction   the   Provincial j  government was in a .sense as free and  absolute as that of the   Dominion or  Imperial Parliament, and so long as its  enactments Lwere  within  the British  North  America Act there was no appeal.    True, its  legislation was  under  the supervision.of the federal, and lor  that reason acts that were,not in conformity with federal or imperial interests    were    often    disallowed.      The  Chinese  Act  was among  these.    For  his own part he took  no stock  in the  arguments of disallowing for imperial  policy.    "How" he asked "is  it   that  Australia and South Africa are allowed   to   enact  what British  Columbia  cannot!*"     Merchants   and   manufacturers all  want protection and he contended  that   his  Government .should  have the power to protect white labor.  When he assumed the leadership he  had no knowledge  that  the  financial  situation was so serious. ��������� A month or  so later an audit showed  him that the  province was facing insolvency.    Thev  were indebted $12,000,000 and'had been'  told by the  bank  that the  limit had  been about reached.   For this  reason  the elections had to be  brought on  a  month earlier.    He had  been charged  with trying  to  take advantage  of his  opponents in  doing so,  but  the  real  reason   was   the   financial   condition.  Immediately   on   being   returned   to  power he  had  called  the   Legislature  together  to devise ways and  means.  His Government first arranged'a loan  to meet this!over-draft, and  a  considerable portion of that  loan  had  now  been paid off.    In addition to this temporary relief they had- to provide for  the future.    To do so mean's' must be  provided to secure more reveuue. This  meant  increased taxes,  and   nothing  could be more unpopular than increased taxation. To do so they had started  with those most able to bear the burdens. .    They were accused of being-  owned by the railways, but they made  the rail ways, pay 500% more taxes.   At  the first session the ' railways' made a  strong lobby and threatened to curtail-  operations, but they had been made to  pay five times more taxes, and instead  of curtailing Ave saw  them coming to  blows Avith each other "at'.Midway ..the.  other day in their effort to get into  Hedley.    They had increased taxes on  the lumber industry and to-day it was  flourishing as it had newer done before.  They had run  the tax on wild lands  a way'up .and the large land-holders  were, dividing up the land.   J8.

Now it looked as if  two railways Avere assured, with a third j  ���������i probability.;   Since Mr. Shatford had j  The Midway Obstruction Most Childish in  Character���������It Made the Corporation '  Cut a Sorry Figure in Court.  (I'rciviiicc. Nov. .) ~  The Victoria. Vancouver & Eastern  .Railway succeeded this morning in its  application for authority to take possession of the lands on its right-of-Avay  near Midway, the right to which was  disputed by the Columbia & Western,  a company subsidiary to the C. P. R.  The land in dispute, forms a portion of  the grant given by the Government to  the Columbia A-'Western as an aid in  the construction of its'line. The Avork-  men of the V. V. & E. entered upon  the land for the purpose of pushing its  construction work, but Avere ejected  by the employees of the Columbia &.  Western.  When the application came on for  hearing this morning before Mr."Justice Morrison, there Avas an imposing  array of counsel representing the V.  V. & E., consisting of Mr. A. H. Mac-  Neil 1. of Rossland. and' Mr. H. B. Mc-  Givern. its Ottawa legal representa-  ti\-e.  Mr. MacNeill. after formally placing  in evidence the documents defining the  landacquired by the V. V. &* E:, said  that the possession of this land was of  the utmost importance, as there. Avas  a' large force of men on the ground  ready to proceed with the construction  of the line.  Mr. D. G. Marshall -desiied to have  the application adjourned on. the  ground that he had not sufficient time  to look into the matter.  Mr. MacNeill A'igorously opposed any  further delay, the application   ha\'ing  already been adjourned once  before. ���������  He Avas anxious that the order should-  be made at once, in order that the deposit of $1810.50 required, by the Railway Act for the expropriation  might  be   deposited   before   the.- closing   of  banking hours at noon to-day.  .His   Lordship   considered   that   he  would allow the application to proceed,  and asked Mr. Marshall  to state his.  objections to the  order being made,  and added that he had little sympathy  for any intention to delay'orevade the  determination.-'of matters coming up "  before him.  . Mr. Marshall said that he could not  oppose, the application, as he had no  material before him. ' ; ���������'   '  " Do you object?" asked His Lordship. >  " No," replied Mr. Marshall.  '���������Do you consent?"  "Oh, no," said Mr. Marshall.  "���������Well, you can liava your order)" decided Mr. Justice  Morrison,  speaking  to Mr. MacNeill. ! "The latter gathered  up his papers hastily and made a rush  for the bank  to pay  the  $1810.50 re-.  quired for the. expropriation.  Maroon Valley.

He  A well-filled house greeted the Preiu-   P"1'"* Jl warm tribute to the Chief Com  ier and his colleagues in  Eraser's hall.  The ladies honored the meeting  with  their  presence,   in   goodly   numbers, j  which lent an  additional interest and  attraction.  Mr. Shatford was the.   first sreaker.  and expressed  his gratification at the  missioner of Lands and Works, whose  department was Avell-condueted.  Mr. McBride on rising recalled his  former visit to Hedley. He was then  leading the opposition and he had a  kindly remembrance of AVhat the  people of Hedley had done for him at  gone  into  the  House he   had   ne\*er!  eeaserl, day in  and day out,  for  this j  raitway.    He wanted a   through   line j  and due safeguards as  to rates.    "In  fact," said the speaker,   " I sometimes  used to'get tired of Shatford and  the  Coast-Kootenay."   The building of the  Praser River bridge and the; discovery  of a pass in the  Hope Mountains had  paved the way, and Mr. Shatford's intimacy Avith the Great Northern officials   and   the   confidence   which   he.  -seemed to haA*e infused into them had  finally induced them to do  without a  dollar of money Avhat others could not  be pre\*ailed upon to do with subsidies.  Mr. Shatford bad'in a measure discovered   the   Similkameen   to  outsiders.  They  had  heard of   it,   but   he   had  brought it home to  them.    It is  said  that two la-Avyers would li\-e comfortably Avhere one Avould starve,  and now  that the Great Northern was coming,  the C. P. R. Avould soon be along.  But  he. reminded the audience that it Avas  easy now to decry subsidies Avhen everything is coming our way.    Had they*  lived in British Columbia in  the dark  days they would say that those men  Avlio  voted subsidies and land grants  h nd done right. When travelling in the  east he had heard men say that they  wouldn't give  one  Ontario farm  for  'the whole province.   McKenzie, Cart-  wright and Blake had all pronounced  against railway building in  B. C. in  most pronounced terms,  and this had  helped  to make it necessary to give  dollars and acres  to secure railways.  Noav Ave know what British Columbia  has.    We knoAA* more of its vast mineral wealth;  more of its timber; more  of its agricultural and fruit-growing  possibilities, and more of its climate.  A promising new settlement is that  of Maroon Valley, lying  between the  Junction   ranch  on   the  Nickel  Plate  road and White Lake.    Tommy Armstrong, an old timer in the vJkanngun,  who came  into the  Spallumcheen   in  18S5, and has pioneered it with the ad-  A-ance guard  in   many sections,   was  also  the  Jcisbua   of Maroon   Valley.  There is now a  cosy  and  moderately  prosperous   settlement   of   peaceable.  Avell-to-do ranchers, among whom maybe mentioned V. P. Howard. L. B! Far-  leigh, W. Cook.   W. Hedges.  T. Armstrong and others.   A post office and a.  road to reach  the main   wagon  road  Avithout encountering the  bad  bill  at  Marcelle's, are among the most  pressing AA'ants of the settlement, and they  are in hopes that the powers that  be  at Ottawa, and 'Victoria- may   grant  them these.   Crops in the vicinity this  year have been particularly good, and  all kinds of grain, vegetables and fruit  may be groAA'ii.    Some, of the Southern  Okanagan Land Company's range land  comes in here.  Concluded on Page Four.  Pecklets.  The man aa-Iio pays the printer'is thf-  nohlest work of God.

II. Jeffreys, of tlu' Simon Leiser  Co., was in town this week.  The Vernon Okanagan has cast olf  its swaddling clothes and is now a  tidy looking sheet.  The  new  proprietors of  Knderby's j  newspaper have decided to call it the  " Progress," and have dropped the  fantastic name Kdenograph.   ,  Messrs.  C. W.  Cook and   It.   Lawrence representing the Scran ton   correspondence school were in town last  week.    They came over from Midway.  The people of Phoenix held an indignation inass'.mceting to protest against  the treatment received at the hands of  Post Oflice Department.  , Rev.   15.   P.   Flewelling will not  he  . back from Vancouver for about three  Aveeks.   At the close of the meeting of  Synod he w:is obliged to go into the  hospital.  i  R. H. Spudding having sold the Ive-  lowna. Clarion to Geo. C. Rose, will engage in the real estate and insurance  business in Vancouver, in partnership  with  .1. W. Prcscott.  Vernon has organized a mock parliament; and an abnormal development of jaw will henceforth be a  marked facial characteristic of the aA'-  ovage Vernonite.  Frederic: Kefl'rr returned on Thursday last from a trip of inspection to  Copper Mountain where he has had  the diamond drill at Avork on the  sunset for several weeks.   ''  The Ladies' Solving Circle of the  Methodist church will hold a sale of  fancy articles appropriate for Christmas gifts,'in the church, on Thursday  evening, Nov. 30th.' There wilfalso be  a, fish pond for the children. All are  iiiA'iteil to attend.  A' newspaper offered a, certain prize  for the. best answer to the conundrum:  " Why is a newspaper like a woman ?."  The pri'/e was Avon by a lady in Oklahoma, who sent in the following : "Because every man should have one of his  own and not run.if ter his neighbor's."  Members of the hospital committee  arc importuning the local manager of  Shatfords Limited for a big hospital  ball by way of opening. Avhen the store  is completed. A floor o0 x 00 should  give ample elbow roonvfor all de\~otees  of the dance to disport themselves.  The hospital funds also would .stand a  lift of that kind.  Tom Henderson.

Tom Avas a.cool-headed, efficient  engineer. In fact, his coolness and  presence of mind saved .the powerhouse from being Ayrecked on one  occasion last spring.  ���������.;   '.  Geo. C Rose, for many years customs collector at. Cascade, 1ms purchased the KeloAvna Clarion. Mi'. Rose  Avas a comparatively early settler iu  the Mission A'alley, going there about  fifteen" years ago, and early identifying  himself with fruit growing, Avhich has  turned out to be the greatest industry  of the district. It is the intention, of  Mr. Rose to make material changes to  improve tlie Clarion.  Mr. IT. IT. Messenger, amalgamator  in the stamp unhand a mill-hand of  long experience, seA'ered his connection Avith the .mill, on Saturday last.  Mr. Messenger had bought property iu  town and built himself a. comfortable  dwelling. As a successful skilled  amalgamator he was hard to heal.  His removal from Hedley will be gen-j  erally regretted, for he is a good citizen and has never been looked upon as  an alien' A. man who will identify  himself with the material, interests of  ��������� .1. F. Royer expects to have the Flyer  on again about the beginning of December. It Avill connect at Keremeos  Avith the Hedley-Penticton stages.  The new store of Shatt'ords Limited  is looming up in great shape. Contractor P. Heldstab has had a large  force of men at work during the past  week and' rapid progress is being  made.  Dr. .Tevmyn a new veterinary 'surgeon has lieen at Os'oyoos relieving Dr.  Coustine who has had such a hard  siege of typhoid'fever.    Dr. Coustine  ..Hedley Meat Market..

Ore shipments from the mines of the  Dominion Copper Co. in the Boundary,  started last week, and active operations are now in full swing. The smelter at Boundary Falls is to be blown in  on the first of December.  , Ill-health appears to have been the  cause of H. R. Parke's resignation of  the Vernon post office. He 'and Mrs  Parke left for the east last week and  on the eve of their departure, were  each made recipients of valuable presents from the people of Vernon whose  confidence and esteem they enjoy to  the fullest extent.  f  Mr. Thos. Golden, boiler inspector  was in Hediey last Aveek and went out  on Monday morning's "stage. He inspected the various boilers of the Yale  Mining Co. and the Daly Reduction  Co.. also of the Hedley Lumber Co.  One boiler that had been in use at the  by which the mill was heated, Avas con-  Daly Reduction Company's works and  demued utterly and orders given to j  discontinue its use. j  The-Daly Reduction Co.- are asking  fenders for supplying 50,000 bricks  delivered at the Company's Avorks in  Hedley The. lateness of the season  may deter local men from having a'  shy at it, owing to the evpense that  Avill be entailed for artificial drying,  and in all probability outside' makers  AA'ith stock on hand may have to sup-,  ply them. Had it been about a month  or two earlier, local men, with the  haulage in their faA-or, could have  licked them out of their boots.    ,  Reports    from   up-eountry   papers  would indicate that ".Tacky" Tyrell,  formerly of  Greenwood.

The school question was next taken  up. To-day British Columbia's school  system was second to none iu Canada  and superior to that of many other  provinces. 'Here Ave had not been  limited by custom or rules, and never  hesitated to take pointers from eastern  provinces or states to the south. Had  the old system been continued it was  only a. matter of 2 or H years until  every dollar of taxation levied would  be needed to maintain school expenditures. In remodelling they followed  the principles in vogue in the east, only  had not thrown one-fourth of the burden of maintenance on the people that  the eastern systems entailed. The  advantages of the change were pointed out, not the least important of  which Avas that it avhs doing business  in a business way to appeal to the  people abroad.  Mk. Greek would .carry away different impressions of the Siniilkameen.  He had gone that afternoon about a  mile .towards heaven and up into the '  clouds to see not only the banner mine  of the province but of the world, and  j the opportunity to do so had been to  him a great pleasure. After a funny  story at the Premier's expense, he said  that when he. took over the hinds and '  works department he was made, aware  ��������� that there, avhs an empty treasury. It  .

To  j the Premier also  he paid a very high  j tribute, and expressed   his pleasure in  j-following him.   A " halo shoes" man,  he had served his native proA'ince in a  Avay to makei them all proud of him.

Tiie chairman   explained  that owing  to    the    strenuous    character of   the  trip,  the   toast  list  Avould    be  short,  to enable the guests to obtain sufficient  rest.    The patriotic toasts of King and  Country disposed of, Provincial rights  brought excellent speeches from the  Premier and Chief Commissioner, and  Our Guest from them  and  Mr.  Shatford.   which   unfortunately   lack   of  space preA-ents even  a resume of the  many excellent things whicli they said.
