TUNBRIDGE  Solicitor, Notary Public,  Conveyancer, Etc  occupied forty-nine days.elapsed time,  the start having been made from Halifax about foiir o'clock, in dull.'colli;  weather, and the ai rival at Vancouver  by a co-incidence, was made 'ft the.  same hour and under the same weather conditions. The actual running  time was forty-one days, and the mileage was 3,91)0 miles, which gives an  ���������average of 95.18 miles per day.  Road conditions were bad, owing to  the immense rainfall in every part of  the country, .especially Manitoba,  where many parts were turned, into  swamps and quagmires, which reduced the daily average considerably.  In addition to the 3,900 miles,_' 7C0  were covered under other than the  car's own power, owing to the absence  of trail or road; this applies particularly to New Ontario. As far as North  Bay no shipping had to be undertaken  although this was the first car that  had ever come through all tlie way  from Halifax to that point.  At first it was not difficult  to keep  UpillY,;'^  from the prairie provinces on, this  was reduced to as low as sixty miles.  The highest daily. run was made in'  Alberta���������185 miles, between Maple  Creek and Lethbridge; the lowest in  Manitoba���������14 miles, from Winnipeg  toHeudingly, owing to the wretched  state of the gumbo roads. The car  was running on an average of ten  miles to the gallon, sometimes as  much as fifteen miles was made to the  gallon, but in some parts of British  Columbia five miles to the gallon was  good going. The number of broken  links in the road through British Columbia necessitated running on the  ties in some places; taking a steamer  on Kootenay Lake on another, and  running for a few miles through the  United States in another place.  The cost of crossing from Halifax to  Vancouver averaged 'about $2.50 a day  per person. The expenses of the car  were about $5.00 per day, exclusive of  repairs. On two occasions the trip  was delayed owing to injury to the  car on bad grades, the driving shaft  having been twisted.  The gumbo roads of Manitoba were  in such bad condition that the drivers  went on strike in Winnipeg, causing a  three days' delay. Owing to the absence of roads inrny detours had to be  made, amounting to 000 miles altogether,  of which  300 wete  in Ontario  pcrirnee, 25 of which' were spent with  the Bank of Biitish-Noith America.  He began, his banking career as a  junior with the Canadian Bank of  .Commerce in 1SS4.: Three years later  he changed to the Bank of British  North America; and has come up  through all the grades to his present  position. He has beerJVctiiinecteil with  a, large number of thejbank's most'important branches; anil has had a long  and thorough training, in matters pertaining to Head oflfi'k' work. He is.  succeeded assuperiiitqndent of branches by Mr. James Anderson.  The Bank has made marked progress  under the management of Mr. Stike-  man anil the sauH>.;}.eareful. conservative policy will bxf eWntinned by his  successor Mr. H. B. MacKenzie.  In Hedley particular interest is taken  in the change as Mr. MacKenzie is  known to most of the business men  here since he visited the branch as inspector. He has served the bank in  possibly nearly every province in the  Dominion and is ni������st intimately acquainted with local;,i<*onditions which  must- i>roVe a-^riiost^  man in his position. The.Gazette,looks  for a prosperous era. of expansion for  the old bank of B. N. A. under its new  general manager.  ���������Victoria, B. C, Nov. 7.-Creditors of  the defunct Midway & ,Vcinoii   railway, a considerable part of which uu-  det taking wfis taken over at the chartering of the Kettle River Valley rail-.'  way hy  that company,   are to receive  in the  near future'full  settlement of;  their legitimate claims for labor, material,  teaming, etc.    Upon the incorporation  of the Kettle  River Valley  line with government assistance in-its  financing,  such aid  was  made conditional upon   the payment of outstanding claims as  against that portion of  the  line  which   they  will  utilize.   A  commission consisting of R. F. Green,  M. P., L. M. Rice of Seattle and Judge  Foi in  of Nelson   was  created   to pass  upon  the claims,   each of which was  inquired into,   certified and paid. ��������� Later on an agreement  was consummated between  the railway company and  the government extending the  compensation  toother Midway & Vernon  creditors,   the government and company paying in equal proportions.    A  check for  the rail way company's proportion   was sent in to Mr. Green not  long ago  by President J; J. Warren  and to day the government's check for  its share was transmitted. The amount  involved  in this  latest distribution is  $14,552, leaving only about $2,000 all  told  to be yet disbursed and all.outstanding obligations satisfied.

Nov. 7th���������Tho  Companies  Act which deprives  unlicensed  extra provincial -companies of  the right to maintain   action of law in  the provincial courts was the deciding  element in   an   interesting   case just  dismissed by the court of appeal.   The'  suit was,that of  the   Konianich  Machinery company, a United States con-,,  cern .against   the   British   Columbia  Pressed Brick company.     An unusual  feature  of the  case   is   that the  company took   out a provincial license before bringing suit, but in   the opinion  of the majority of the  judges of the  appeal  court, this did   not suffice  t<>  give the company retroactive rights at  law, section 100 of  the Companies Act  not  then   being in(;existeiiec.     Chief  Justice Macdonald rendered a dissenting judgment on  this  point  but his  judgment stood alone.

Towns and cities did their best to  welcome the pathfinder, and. besides  presenting pennants of their town and  entertaining the motorists, passed  resolutions pledging unqualified cooperation iu any scheme for the Canadian highway from coast to coast.  Chains were seldom used. Block  and tackle were often in requisition.  On one occasion a bridge had to be  built to get the car over, and teams  I were necessary to pull the car out of  bad .--pots.  The motorists however were: always  able to get shelter for tin." night, and  never lacked food or gasoline.  Scarcely any macadam roads were  found on the journey, the majoiity  was cat th and the re.-t gravel. The  best roads were in British Columbia  and Ontario, the worst, in Manitoba.  The earth roads of tin.' Maritime provinces and Alberta and Saskatchewan  were of about equal merit.  ADVERTISE   IN   THK   GAZKTTU  (Oroville Gazette.!  Roosevelt has succeeded in defeating  President Taft, the only object he had  in   view, for at no time was  there a  shadow of a hope of Roosevelt's election.      After  receiving   the   highest  honors that can be conferred upon any  man by a political party Mr. Roosevelt  turned traitor to  that party and ac-  complished its overthrow.     However,  the defeat  of the republican  party is  hut  temporary.     The   principles   for  which  it stands  have endured  for 50  years,   what it has accomplished  foi'  America and the  American people is  an  enduring  monument to   progress  and  national prosperity.     The republican party still lives and will continue  to live  battling for human lights, the  constitution   and  the law.    The  only  satisfaction is that Roosevelt is eliminated as a   further menace to the country,   and   the   progressive   party   will  gradually disintregate.j as no one man  party can   long hold  its organization.  Republicans  are  not disheartened  by!  defeat, it is an incentive to get together and work together.   The party will  recover speedily,   become   better   organized  and   the individual   members  will work  to the end  that two years  hence a stronger front will be presented to   the old   political opponent than  ever before.  GENERAL NEWS  From the amount of grading material that is constantly passing to the  front it is evident that the lailroad  contractors are assembling the necessary implements to carry out an ,-ic-  liyo,campaign throughout the winter.  Ffroni, .statements .niacle by those in a,  position to "speak" with authority it is  almost a certainty that by this time  next year the road will he completed  and in operation to a point where connection can be made with the coast,  and trains will be running over this  line from Spokane to tide water. That  fortunate consummation will have a  very healthy effect on Okanogan county as it will open up the coast markets  to the products of the .farm, the orchard and the garden, and give land  owners an incentive, for- producing to  the limit of the capabilities'of their  holdings. . It is the realization of that  that those of us who have lived in this  country so many year's have always  looked forward to longingly, and the  crowning of those hopes, and the  transformation in the country that  the realization will bring about, will  be some reward for the long wait.  ���������Oroville Gazette  LATEST NEWS IN BRIEF  The C.

Premier McBride left Ottawa on  Saturday for home by way of New  York and California.  Wood row Wilson only managed to  poll forty-six per cent, of the total  vote polled in the recent presidential  election.  The Radicals are voting down all  amendments to the Irish Home Rule  bill. Evidently that is part of the  bargain made with Redmond.  A Yukon River steamer was caught  in an ice. jam 27 miles south of Daw-  pon.

Lloyds underwriters have been hard  hit with the wreck of the Royal  George, The loss is likely* to eat up  the entire premium income for the  season from the St.   Lawrence route.  An organization has been started in  St. Paul to discourage emigration to  Canada. Here is a chance for the  man with the little hammer.  The Democrats have control of the  United States Senate. In this way  Wilson will have no excuse for not doing what he may have promised to do  when he has his own party controlling  the situation all along the line.  The Cauadian Northern Steamship  'Royal George ran on a rock in the St.  Lawrence river on Thursday of last  week. There were 901 passengers on  board all of whom were saved but  were in peril for a time.

It is written by  Watson Griffin and was published by  the Ontario Press Limited: hot the  edition is exhausted and we have not  heard that any second edition is contemplated, so we are not noticing the  work as an advertisement for either  the author or the publisher, although  we must say that it will be a disappointment' tt) many if arrangements  be not made for a second edition, for  it is one of the most concise and timely articles <>n the siibjcetwe have read.  There are only 33 pages of it audit  can be read in an hour's time, but it  strikes oil on every one of the 33  pages.  The beauty of it. to our mind, is that  it deals with a mischievous fallacy by  which both the people of Ireland and  of Canada are being humbugged. In  Ireland they are being told that Canada has home rule and Ireland should  have it as well, while in Canada T. P.  O'Connor- told us that all that was  proposed was to give Ireland the same  as Canada has. In making that statement O'Connor either did not know  what the measure Asquith and Redmond Were concocting was going to  be like, or if he did he was telling a  deliberate untruth, for the cases are  in no way similar.  To Canadians the writer of this  pamphlet makes the case all the plainer and more forcible by giving a short  ' and ell'ective resume of the life and  work of Thomas D'Arey MeGcc which  is a name dear to the hearts of Canadian Irish who knew his work best.  McGee came from Ireland with an intense hatred of Biitain and made his  home in the United States where he  saw     Irishmen     become     Americans.  was a handicap to them that was making theni hewers of wood and drawers  of. water to   the republic  to'the south  of them, and he became  an ardent nil  vocate   of   confederation.      In    that  movement no man did more by pen or  platform   to arouse  Canadians'   to the  necessity  of that great step  than the  biilliant orator and   writer,   McGee.  His   whole '-being   was- saturated   with  the idea and it forever  cured   him of  the notion   of Home Rule for  Ireland  and the disintegration'which that step  implied., Disintegration was the thing  he. was fighting from that hencefoith.  That idea   is taken by  the writer of  tl)i<   pamphlet  and elaborated   in  the  light of Canada's   experience in u way  which  is  most effective and   convincing.      Tlie pamphlet should be in the  hands of every elector in  Britain today   to show   theni   the  folly  of  the.  course  into   which   unwise  rulers are  trying to lead them.      Ulster long ago  c.-uight tlie  truth   which McGee saw  and that  is why   they are  Britons   in  Ireland   to-day as   the Scotchmen   are  Britons in Scotland.  Canada took a great: step forward  from isolation to unity in ]Sl������7: why  .should Britain, and particularly Ireland, taken great step backward in  1912 by going back to where Canada  was 55 years ago ? '     '        .  The Gazette does not contend that  the system of government in It-eland  to-day is 'ideal; "or is even half as good  as it might be thade. hut it is a hundred per cent, better now than it was  when Gladstone's Home Rule bill was  defeated in ISO 1. The. measure of  Home Rule given by Lord Salisbury  in IS9S undersecretary Wyndhain in  the form of a fairly comprehensive  municipal system, and this again ..supplemented by the Land Purchase Bill  in 1903, places Ireland in a. fairly comfortable position. But it is of no more  use to them than food is tti the starv-  inu suffragettes in English jails if their  cassedness will not allow them to partake of it, and there is a heap of the  cussedness of the starving suffragette  in the make-up of John Redmond.  What Britain needs to-day for Ireland and for herself is a system evolved  by her statesmen on very similar lines  to that formulated by Conservative  and Liberal statesmen alike in Canada  and embodied in the British North  America Act which they (the British  parliament) were asked to enact for  Canada. Such a, system would provide for local legislatures through  Great Britain which would relieve the  Imperial parliament of purely local  matters. These legislatures as Watson Griffin points out. need not he of  similar urea or population and it  would give Ulster a legislature of her  own while the rest of Ireland could  run their local show to their own liking in one or more legislatures as they  might see fit: but, imperial matters  such as the tai ill" should not be touched by any but the Imperial parliament.  It afterwards passed into tlie possession of Walter Scott, who is now the  Premier of Saskatchewan, and that is  when the deterioration in its grey  matter set in until, it lias today  reached t'>e hopeless condition indicated by this stupid remark about  British Columbia's attitude towards  reciprocity.'  The Science of Saving  In k nutshell, the science of saving money and  of successful investiment is largely the science  of self-control. i  A Savings Account in  Tlie Bank of .British- North America  will assist you wonderfully in the development  of self-control.

Hugh Megraw came over from  Bridesville on Friday on a visit to his  brother and sister here, He reports  lots of snow over on Anarchist Moun-  . tain and much of the harvest buried  in it. The season was so wet that grain  did not ripen until late and then the  weather was too uncertain to enable  the crops" to be saved. On Rock ('reek  hill .there is a different tale to tell and  the fanners there have harvested the  bumper crop of their lives. Ed llatton  threshed (1000 bushels of grain; his  neighbor McLennan a, similar quantity  and Sain Lai-sen took 7000 bushels off  the old Christoplier.son place. All the  other tanners on the mountain have  had about as good yields from the  acreage which they had in crop.

A new rime, has been placed on the  school flagpole and the new flag is  now hoisted every day. The change  was made ' by electricians MeEacliern  and Simpson and as the. flagpole, was  too ,tall and slim to make it advisable  to risk climbing they made use of a  tall fir tree which stood a few feet to  one side, allowing the flagpole, controlled by guy ropes, to lean -over towards the tree which was safely climbed and from it the, new rope was run  through tlie pulley,-'on. the top of the  pole.

The Coalmont Courier went into, the  journalistic  boneyard last week after  a  short and useless existence.     The  last issue,   we  are  told,   was devoted  principally to  abuse of an old respected resident of the district, F. P. Cook.  who was  foolishly   led   to   back  the.  enterprise  and who  kept it alive   too  long for   his own credit.      Mr. Cook is  not the lirst one who  in   pity fed the  cheeky  adventurer  who   published  it  and got vile abuse in  return.    Even a  yellow  dog has   never been   known to  fail in gratitude but will lick the hand  that feeds hiin.

After  that good shooting  was done and many of the local sports  took home turkeys.  The  L. O   L. 1770 observed   the 5th  by having a special  meeting at which  about   thirty   members  were present.  Four new   candidates presented themselves   for   initiation   and   were   made  members   of the order   with the usual  ceremonial   form.     After the work at  the Lodge all sat down   to a line lunch  which   was   provided hy   the wives of  many of   the   brelhern  I lecember   17th will be  lar meeting.     Visit ing  ally invited.  Nigel Ewart and Charlie l.tichter  who have spent the summer and fall  with C. l>. B. Green's survey party up  the coast on Graham island returned  to Keremeos on l-'riday. They report  a horribly wet summer of it but cannot tell whether the superabundance  of wet, stuff is to be charged up against  the climate or was due to an unusually. j  wet season. There is abundance of j  game on the island among which were j  wild cattle. Charlie was the niinrod !  of tlie party and was required to  victual the camp with the spoils of his  rifle. ���������   '     c  The town is all agog with placer excitement", and the valley is believed to  be on the eve of a big placer mining  boom. Early in the summer mention  was inade of a considerable portion of  the river in< the vicinity of Ashnola  creek being staked for placer by Mr.  Oorwin for Edward Malum of Vancouver. A couple of months ago or  more, an old gentleman named Wm.  Willis appealed (in the scene and  rumor had it that lie and his associate  Mr. Osgood were likely to take over  the Corwin locations, but instead of  doing so they have gathered in a big  area of placer ground for themselves  hy staking twenty miles of the river  of which ten miles are on each side of  tic-boundary line at Chopaca. -They  have a keystone drill at work and if  the prospect is favorable they have  gold dredges ready to be put to work.  SVitliin the past few days the river  gravels have been panned by an old  placer prospector named Lewis for  Malum of Vancouver and it is reported that lots of colors were obtained  along the river on lhe Branch. All  are awaitiiig the result of the prospecting at Chopaca with the Keystone  drill and there is a general belief that  in a few. days .sunn-thing out of the  ordinary will be doing.-  R. H.
