WINKLER,     Proprietor. |  For nine years  we  have   carefully  perused  the columns  of Loomis and  Oroville   papers    conducted   by Bro.  Dallam  and we have  yet to see a single sentence \with which we could not  agree or which was not.eniinently fair,  broad-gauged and in'strict accord with  the best features  of what good "journalism   ought to be.     When he  thinks  his friends are  wrong he plainly tells  them so.   Last week he dealt with the  small-pox situation in  a lengthy article which we regret-we have not space  to  reproduce in  full but  will give as  much  as we can,  and if the  people of  the   northern  .part   of    Washington  state will pay heed to what he has told  them   they will  be the gainers in the  long run.     The Oroville Gazette says :  "What was threatened   by the British  Columbia, officials last week has  taken'place.   " A quarantine, has" been  declared   against  the   United  States,  and it is  this  particular., part of the  United States that is to feel the inconvenience  and loss that such a quarantine  entails.     Whether  there be fair  and just grounds for this  drastic action does  not enter into   the question.  Those on  the other side of the line  with  the power  to issue such a mandate feel  that they have ample reason  for, this step,  and have taken it,  and  when such  a step is taken  by those in  authority the whole  machinery of the  British  Columbia govornment is  behind them, and the order is a law that  .cannot be infringed upon without certain punishment following.     The bolt  fell  Monday.    The action of the Pro  vincial Board of Health  is set forth in  the follbwing official  notice  that has  been  posted in  conspicuous  places in  Oroville, and at other points along the  raihoad :  "Notice���������Provincial Board of Health  ���������Re Outbreak of Smallpox���������All persons travelling into Canada from the  United States will have to produce  certificates of vaccination when called  on by the constable on duty, and if unable to produce it will have to return  to the United States.  30th day of October, 1913  C.J. PAGAN,  Secretary Provincial Board of Health,  Victoria, B. C.  Certificates must  be   dated   within  .six months   of the  time of presentation."  "Such is the ukase. It means just  what it says. There is no dodging it.  The provincial officers know no distinction of person. The man or woman  travelling into Canada from this side  of the line must be vaccinated, must  hold a certificate of vaccination and  that certificate must be signed by a  duly'accredited physician, otherwise  it does not go. While deploring the  measure taken, and doubting its expediency, one cannot help but admire  the prompt action of the Canadian  officials, and applaud the enforcement  of lutv without fear or favor. For it  will be enforced to the' letter, and  there are provincial officers traveling  on the trains to see that uo one evades  the orders. This way of acting in an  emergency rather puts the slipshod  methods of procedure in this country  in contempt. It can be said here, and  made emphatic, that if the same  prompt and decisive action had followed the first appearance of small-pox in  this country the Canadian quarantine  would not have been necessary.  "Now as stated above all this could  have been prevented had common  sense precautionary measures been  taken by those in authority when it  first became known that small-pox existed in this country. It matters not  where the fault rests, for it certainly  rests somewhere, as there can be no  question but that someone failed to  inaugurate strict preventive and precautionary measures to prevent the  spread of the disease from the beginning, and some one should be held responsible. Because the cases happened to be mild is no excuse. There  might be fifty inild cases, and then  one or more fatal ones. Those who  are expected to safeguard communities against contagious diseases were  certainly derelict in thp performance  of their duties. It wa.s the bounden  duty of those in authority to use every  means known to medicine to stamp  Continued on Pago Throe  STAMPED OUT  Small-pox   Danger    at   Keremeos   Declared to be Practically Over and  School Re-opens  Thanks to vigorous measures tnken  to prevent ,the spread of small-pox  which had brolcen out in the lower  part of the valley on this side the  line, the plan of defence has been so  effective that all danger is believed to  be over and on Monday the school reopened on-permission from Dr. Miller  who has also left for the coast after  giving full directions as to what must  be done before removing all restrictions which had been placed on the  quarantined premises.- These at the  expiration of a certain period are to be  thoroughly disinfected.    ^*\  Service was held ��������� in tbe church on  Sunday night and apart from the  quarantined houses the place is in  possesion of a sound hill of health.  The public are therefore free to .come  and go between Keremeos and every  other place' in the district, but the  quara'ntihe will bo maintained on the  railway until such time as there is  good and sufficient evidence that the  people in infected places south of the  line, have come -to their senses and  show that they are in earnest about  trying to stamp the thing out instead  of resorting to misrepresentation and  concealment.  .  The amount of exposure there was  from the mild case which imported the  disease and the fact that the period of  incubation is long past without any  new cases developing, together with  the active measures taken to prevent  the spread of the disease leaves no  reason to doubt that it is practically  stamped out, and the main thing now  is to see that no more of it is imported.  WORK DELAYED TEMPORARILY  Men at Work on Dam Were Laid Off on  Saturday���������Mr. Jones on Way  to New York  MONTAGUE COMES BACK  The Eloquent Doctor  Re-enters Politics  to Take Portfolio in Manitoba  Cabinet  Winnipeg, Nov. 8.���������Hon. W. H.  Montague has accepted the portfolio  of minister of public works in the  Manitoba cabinet, succeeding Hon.  Colin H. Campbell. He will be sworn  in to-day The consent of the lienlen-  ant-govenor was received last night.  Mr. Cauipbell has resigned through ill  health, but retains his seat in the  house. .   -      :  From the early 'eighties' to the  fall"of the Conservative administration in 1S9G he was one of the most  prominent figures in Canadian public  life and was generally considered one  of the foremost platform speakers of  the day. His electoral contests with  Colter of Haldiarnand first brought  him into public notice and in them he  won his spurs and showed that he was  cabinet timber. . ��������� 4  At the time of the defeat of the administration he was Secretary of  State but retired from politics altogether and would never offer himself in  any constituency. His return to public life will be welcomed hy all his old-  time admirers.  In last week's issue we referred to  fuither instructions being awaited  from New York before ��������� tlie order for  full steam ahead might be expected,  and expressed the hope that all obstacles and causes for delay might be  cleared away so tlnit advantage might  be taken of the fine weather for building-  Well; the word has come, but in  stead of it being to go ahead, it was  for Mr. .Tone1-- to proceed to New York  with certain information which was  required-by the Board of Directors in  reference to plans, estimates, etc. Of  course it is but natural and is certainly business on the part of the directors  to" want to have the. fullest possible  information before they decide to go  on with ,.a. project'which will in all  probability cost upwards of $200,000  before it is finished. The unfortunate  feature of the halt is that good weather  with the river at its lowest and no  frcist in the ground, and these are the  ideal conditions for the building of  the dam, valuable time is now being  *ost by way of getting ��������� everything in readiness to go on with the  installation a road had been brushed  out to enable material to be taken on  to the site. Some excavation had also  heon done on the spot marked out by  the engineer, and by getting the dam  completed this winter it would put  them a year ahead.  The Directors' meeting in New York  is to take place about the loth and in  order to be there in time it was necessary for Mr. Jones to start next day  after receipt of the telegram, which  left very little time for him to get the.  data required. To do so, each man on  the staff had to leave what they  were doing and begin compiling and  it'wus near evening on Sunday before  the auto left with hiin for Penticton  to take the boat that evening. It  will not.be known until after the 15th ,  what course may be decided on by the  directors,--arid whatever it may be it  will doubtless be in the interests of the  company, for it will be the result of  the deliberations of hard-headed men  of, business with facts and figures  before them.  KETTLE VALLEY RAILWAY  President  Warren at  Vancouver  Ready  to Open Tenders���������Progress of  ,. Construction  Vancouver,. B. O. Nov. (ith.���������Mr. J.  J. Warren, president of the Kettle  River Valley Railway, arrived in the  city last -evening from Kamloops, accompanied hy the'chief engineer of  the system, Mr MeOullough, and in a  short space of time the rotunda of the  Hotel Vancouver was crowded with  railway contractors, all anxious to  see them. The reason for this activity  is that Mr. Warran will open the tenders today for the construction of the  last stretch of the Kettle Valley.  The distance to be awarded is about  sixty miles west of Osprey Lake.  In conservation with'a reporter Mi1.  Warren said that the contract might  be awarded in two parts. This would  be decided after the tendeis had been  opened and studied. He was anxious ���������  to complete 'the railway as soon as  possible. He said construction of the  rest of the line was proceeding satisfactorily.���������Province  The reporter who interviewed Mr.  Warren goes on to speak of the difficult character of the work in the  Coquihalla and appeals to have taken  for granted that this was part of the  work then about to be let, but as a  matter of fact the Coquihalla portion  between Hope and the summit was let  months ago and grading has been  under way for some time.  FATALITY AT PENTICTON  Three Men Are Killed  by Fall of Earth  While Working in Pit  VALUE OF A PROSPECT  t.   Basis   That   Seems  Reasonable  Been Fixed  Has  CLEMENT CASE HEARING  Justice Cassels Presides and Formidable  Array of Legal Talent Argue  Last week the case against Justice  Clement for alleged overcharge of  travelling expenses wa.s up for hearing in Vancouver before Justice Cassels who had been specially sent west  for that purpose. The claim made by  the Ctown was for $4201 alleged overcharges in putting in the travelling  expenses, from Grand Forks to Vancouver when he was all the while living in that city.  Justice Clement was defended by  Hon. Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, Mr,  E. P. Davis and Mr. E. V. Bodwell  while the case was handled for the  prosecution by Mr. F. S. McLennan,  K. C, of Montreal.  The legal point of what constitutes  residence was one of the main  points that defendant's counsel made  their fight upon. Another point urged  by defendant was that tho action was  political in its source.  In view of the importance of the  case and the points involved the presiding Justice reserved judgment.  The Daily Mining Record of Denver has propounded the theory that  "a prospect is worth no more than the  amount of money it will require to  prove it up." Touching on this the  Mining, Engineering and Electrical  Record says:  "One of the great drawbacks to the  development  of mining in British Columbia is found in  the absurdly high  and- speculative prices demanded for  metalliferous and coal properties.    No  prospect  is worth  more than the cost  of  proving it,  and the prospector or  speculative holder should be willing to  take his  chance along with  the investor.   If a prospect cannot make'a mine  it is  worth  nothing.    The   best prospect requires a large amount of capital  to prove it up and to place it into  productive condition when that work  is  successful.     Only one prospect in  twenty  has  any chance of proving a  mine,  and   the  investor is obliged to  consider the development of a prospect  accordingly."  About fifteen corporation laborers  at Penticton were working in a pit  near Okanagan River where dirt was  being taken out for grading the lake  shore, drive. Suddenly without any  warning tbe bunk above tlie'm gave  away and several hundreds of tons of  dirt came down on theni. Two wagons  were in the pit.biing filled at the lime  and the men who were between the  wagons and the slide were unable, to  get away in time and were crushed to  death.  Three men named James Campbell,  James Boyce and Malcolm Nicholson  were killed and .another man named  Weir had his , leg broken. Boyce  leaves a. widow and four children iyho  live in Penticton.  MERELY INCIDENTAL  Mistaken Idea Entertained in Oroville aa  to Cause of Quarantine  PARCELS POST BY JAN.   ist  Post Office Department Trying to Con-  plete Preparations This Year���������Tentative Rates Established.  Ottawa, Nov. 8. -The efforts of the  post office department are still being  directed towards the establishment of  the parcels post system on January 1,  though the date is not absolutely certain.  The schedule of rates has been drawn  up tentatively, but will require the approval of the postmaster-general. A  great deal of detail is necessary in connection with the regulations gover-  ing the system.  A mistaken idea seems to obtain in  Oroville as to the cause of the smallpox quarantine maintained on the G.  N. R. trains at the boundary line. It  is commonly reported there that the  quarantine was put on to compel the  railway company to run tho trains  through and that the small-pox was  merely being used as an excuse to  that end.  This  feature of the  case is  but another evidence of how hopeless it is to  expect the people of that town and its  officials to look the matter squarely in  the face when  they will attempt to  use such a red herring as that to shift  from   themselves  tho  blame.     Tf  the  quarantine  bad  produced   the  effect  which those   who peddle   that   yarn  seem to  think it was designed to produce, it would have been   hailed along  this portion   of the Great Northern as  a very good   thing in itself, but still it-  would only have been a mere incident,  a corollary or whatever else you might  like  to call  it.     But as  for it having  anything to  do in the way  of influencing the medical officer who was sent  here from Victoria with full authority  to do as he has done,  the thing is absurd.  There was quite a bumper house  for the opening of the Star theatre on  Friday evening last when the first  moving picture show was put on in it.  The building will seat 250 if neccessary,  although seating for that number has  not yet been provided aud will not be  until ib is needed. A new aluminum  curtain seems to bring out the pictures  in bolder relief although there never  was any trouble in that direction as  they have been remarkably clear all  along.

Price  Ellison to the Senate and the choice of  a siu-cc.sMir to tlie portfolio of Finance  and  Agi iouiture  has  given   room foi  speculal ion.     Along with this eiieiun-  stnn'ce'   is the   fact  that a bye-election  ���������has been   necessitated'in ono constitu-  - ency  on the coast owing to the elevation   to i lie  bench   of  Hon. A. 15. Mc-  Phillips, President of the Council, who  represented ,the Islands cbns-tituency.  A standard-hearer for the government  lias   been   chosen to'contest  this constituency and  the   choice   has fallen  upon   W. XV. Foster,  deputy-minister  of Public Works.     One  despatch appearing in a coast paper is to the effect  that it has  already been  decided that  on the  election of Mr. Foster he is to  be taken  into the cabinet and given  ���������the  portfolio  that he is  best qualified  to fill, which is that of Public Works,  owing  to his  familiarity with   the affairs of the department, and that Hon.  Thos.  Taylor is  to be given   the portfolio of Finance, and Agriculture.  While we have nothing whatever to  urge  against  the fitness  of  either  of  these gentlemen  for the portfolios for  which they are said to be slated, there  are good  and valid reasons for thinking  that  Siniilkaiiieen  riding should  have some of  the  honor  when  they  have a  representative  who  could fill  the position with credit to himself and  his  constituency and in   the  best  in  terests of the province at large. Moreover,   when   a  portfolio  has  for   any  reason been rendered vacant and some  semblance  of balance in  reference to  coast and   interior   representation   in  the  cabinet is   tube   maintained,   it is  desiiable that the portion of the province  deprived of  its cabinet representation by the  change,  should   receive  the  first  consideration.     As  the  vacancy in this case would be created by  the retirement  of  Hon. Price Ellison,  who represented the Okanagan riding,  it  is in every  way   fitting   that  the  Similkameen  riding should   now have  its   turn   when it has  repeatedly  sent  Mr. Shatford   to represent  the riding  and support the administration of the  day, instead of  disturbing the present  balance  or preponderance (whichever  you may  wish to call it)  by filling the  position   with  a  coast representative  who is not now and has not yet been a  member of the Legislature.  In point of seniority Mr. Shatford is  now one of the oldest members in the  House, having been returned by this  riding for its representative for four  parliaments  in   succession, ' defeating  some of the heaviest timber  the opposition  could   bring against him,  and  the last time  being it-turned by acclamation.     And in   point of fitness the  portfolio which would be rendered vacant by Hon. Mr. Ellison's elevation to  the Senate is the very one which would  fit in best   with Mr. Shatford's special  qualifications  for  it.    In  finance it is  doubtful   whether there is his equal in  the Legislatme to-day, to say nothing  of superior.     This fact he  has pi oven  iu numberless ways and with a degree  of absolute conclusiveness that cannot  be gainsaid. To substantiate this claim,  it is scarcely necessary to mention the  names  Southern Okanagan Land Co.,  Bank of Vancouver, British Columbia  Life   Insurance.  Company and   many  others   with which he has been identified  and in f ome of which   the success  attained   has been due almost entirely  to his special effort and capability as a  financier.    In agriculture also he is almost equally strong,  for although not  what might  be called a  practical farmer or orchardisl, his connection with  the.  Southern  Okanagan   Land  Company  forced   hiin into  a study  of the  technique    of" fruit growing,    and    it  must not be forgotten that fruit-going  was the branch of agriculture in which  Hon. Martin  Burrell  specialized, and  it  was  recognized  to   be of  sufficient  importance   to   help  to   influence  his  choice.  Perhaps this may be all beside the.  question for we do not claim to know  whether Mr. Shatford entertains any  cabinet aspirations or whether cabinet  preferment would (il in with bis plans,  for we have never discussed the matter with him: but we do know that  the people of Siniilkaiiieen want the  honor for their riding and for their  representative and that is sufficient  warrant for us in,putting forward  the claim.  the defenders again two up. The  seventh hole was also halved with  James, although both defenders had  serious trouble with their drives^ which  cost a penalty stroke in both cases.  On the eighth hole Miss Jackson again  saved the situation with a half, and  the ninth hole completing the first  round of tbe course was won by Megraw, making it three up i'or the first  spasm. The second round again opened auspiciously for the defenders when  Miss Jackson took it in four and won  it again without the handicap. They  also won "Polaris" both partners being in the kill and leaving them five  up. In the next hole, the challengers  were in serious trouble all the way  and both defenders won it, one of  theni doing it without the handicap.  This left them dorniy with six up and  six to play. The next hole "Corkscrew" was won by the defenders and  the match was over, seven holes up  and five to play. The balance of tbe  round was played for practice and it  was seen at the end that in this round  Miss Jackson had cut 10 strokes off hoist-ore for tbe first round by making it  in ot and her partner also in making  it in 52 had taken three strokes otf the  score for his lirst round.

Dalton, Manager  SECOND GRUBB  MANIFESTO  TAKE A LOOK AT OUR  WINDOW DISPLAY  FOR FREE GIFTS  GOLF   REDIVIVUS  Fresh   Interest in Game   Awakened by  Local  Challenge Match  Interest in local golf has been heightened by the arrangement made recently for permanent use of the  grounds and the donation of cups for  competition by Mr. 1. L. Merrill, president of the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  It received an additional boost by a  local challenge match when R. James,  secretary of the club, aud VV. Martin,  the local scratch men, issued a challenge, to play any other two members  of the club a four ball foursome and  allow a stroke a hole handicap. The  challenge was -forthwith..accepted by  A. Megraw, vice-president of the club,  on behalf of himself and another member of the club to be chosen and announced to the challengers tlie day  preceding the. match. The choice of  partner for the game fell upon Miss  Emily Jackson who has been playing  steady golf for several weeks past.  The toss-up for honors wa.s won by  the challengers who took it for themselves, James driving off on the  "'saddle" hole and getting a clean lie  about fifteen yards to the right of the  green. Martin followed with a direct  shot which gained the bank by a small  margin but having a suggestion of a  pull it got dangerously near the left  bank hazard and dribbled down to the  bottom. Miss Jackson sliced her  drive, into the hazard, barely missing  the ravine to the right but made a  splendid recovery and landed with her  second near the green but dangerously  near the left hazard. Megraw drove  slioit but made the bank and had a  safe lie. Martin also made a fine recovery and landed about 10 yards off  the green. James was short on his  approach; Megraw laid his second on  the green and went down in one putt,  getting the whole in three while the  challengers each cook four and Miss  Jackson missing her first putt took  a, five, the hole being tied by her with  the handicap and won by her partner  without it. The second hole wa.s made  by the challengers in five and seven  and by the defenders in five and eight  leaving them two holes up with the  handicap. The third hole was halved.  In the fourth the defenders had serious trouble with their drives while  the challengers got off to a good start  and the hole was won by Martin  with a five. The fifth hole saw excellent drives by James and Miss Jackson who both lay on the green and  Miss Jackson halved it with him. The  sixthhole was won by Megraw, making  , After last week's paper was  oft"  tbe  the press and mailed to subscribers we  received a. somewhat  bulky  envelope  on whicli was printed"Hotel de Grubb"  and which contained  six  copies of  a  printed "Notice to the   Public"   which  was a rehash of what Mr. Grubb wrote  us two   weeks  ago  on   the  small-pox  situation,   only it   contained    several  more   paragraphs   than   the   last and  was altogether more long-winded, but  did not  look  a  bit  more  sincere  not-  more  worthy of credence   than    the  last.    In   fact it  was   less   worthy  of  credence-than the former although   it  was again signed "E.N. Grubb, Mayor  of the Town of Oroville" and   re-infor-  ced by another signature,   "Dr.   F.   S.  Beale, Deputy County Health Officer".  The reason   why  wo say  it was  less  worthy is that  there was a  possibility  that    when    the  first .manifesto  was  sent out  by  the Mayor  he  may  not  have known anything about the  new  case of confluent small pox which had  broken    out   there    and   which    was  quarantined on    October 31,   but  this  second manifesto Is dated November fi,  and no mention'whatever is   made  of  it.    On   the  contrary   the    document  discourses   of   "months   ago,    "mild  cases"   and    "quarantined   premises"  and    being  a. follow-up   to   the    first  which specified 30 days lapse since the  last quarantine,   there  is no other inference to be taken than that the public  are asked by these two.officials to  believe that there have been no new cases  of small-pox itr Oroville for 30 days plus  7   days   since .the    last   quarantine,  whereas    health    authorities  on   this  side   have   positive   evidence   to  the  contrary. ���������<  Mr. Grubb is a hotel proprietor and  fancies that concealment will be. best  for hiin and his business. The Deputy  County Health Officer we do not  know; but we do know that he has  allowed his name to go to a document  which destroys all confidence or reliance which we might other-wise have  been disposed to place in him. Both  of them are making a mistake and we  are quite sure that it Was their attitude which showed Dr. Miller the necessity of taking the more drastic  course for protecting this portion of  the province, for ho could, have, no  confidence in any possibility of them  employing the necessary means to  cope with the disease. The quarantine hurts us all and while we have  done all we could to protect ourselves  and get rid of the quarantine, only  part of what we had attempted to accomplish can lie brought about until  Oroville and the county 'in which  it is situated make up their minds to  get a new Mayor and new Depu  ty Health Officer who can rise above  the dollar andcent consideration. At  all events it will be necessary to  receive some further assurance of a  clean bill of health than any manifestoes which hereafter come from  either of  these gentlemen.  !

About half a dozen Hedley Orangemen took in the Guy Fawkes supper  given by the Princeton Orangemen  last week. The party was large  enough to make a comfortable auto  load and with that mode of conveyance they were able to get back in  good time.    All report a good time.  E. E. Burr while not'so'successessful  as some  of the other  Nimrods in getting his share oi' the deer, has scored a  notch in   bagging a wild goat back up  on   the mountain   to the  north  of the  Sirois ranch.  In build it was a regular  wind splitter and was  apparently got  np for the express  purpose of walking  along  narrow  ledges  of rock   that a  more bulky animal dare not attempt.  When  the. two scratch   men of   the  Hedley Golf Club challenged any other  two mombeis of lhe club to a four ball  foursome and give a stroke a hole they  started something.  The challenge was  ���������.-, forthwith  accepted  and  the  challengers went down to defeat.    Since then  :   the winners have had .challenges r-ain-  ingin on them so fast they do not know  what to do with them.  Mr. M. L. Gczon arrived in Hedley  on'Friday last from Vancouver to take  the position of time-keeper and storekeeper at; the mine. Mr. Owen Dickenson who arrived two weeks ago for  a similar purpose did not remain and  Mr. Wood who was expecting to get  away wits not relieved until Mr.  Gezon's ariival. The line Mr. Dickenson had been taking was that of mining engineering and as his work hero  would not advance him in that direction he concluded to waste no time.  We have received aletterfrom Victor  Voigt of Princeton complaining of the  reference in la������t issue to the Joe Garrison incident.   It appears Ave were misinformed in  some of the minor details  and the main inaccuracy he points out  is that constable Wolford and his wife  ���������were  on   horseback  when   the horses  were  frightened,   and not driving  as  stated   in   the   paragraph.     He   also  denies that  the car .which was driven  by  himself  wus   being   handled   in a  manner  to  deliberately frighten   the  horses,   but ascribes the whole trouble  to the shooting.    These  corrections it  appears  to  us should  be made  in all  fairness to him,  although the  tone of  his letter was  both  impertinent and  offensive,    and   for   that   reason   we  would have been justified in taking no  notice of it.  The   fire   alarm   rang   on   Tuesday  evening for a little blaze in the roof of  the white cottage at the end of the old  foot    bridge,   now    occupied    by    E.  Michell. The hose ten in made a speedy  turnout but  it was  not  necessary to  begin laying hose line as prompt action  of Allen Galbraith  and J.  Mairhofer  had  it  checked.   The  old   menace of  stove-pipe  through   the roof,  and the  pipe separating,   was   the   cause.    A  brisk fire  in the heater from a pitchy  stick made Mrs. Michell suspicious and  she sent one of  the boys  out to   see.  Thus  the trouble  was  noticed  before  the blaze  broke out  and it was all on  the outside.     She also had a ladder up  and  water ready for Allen Galbraith  when  he got  there.    The   occurrence  shows  the  necessity  of another  hydrant or fire plug over about the bridge,  lhe   gypsies   who    were  here  last  week and  enjoyed   the  hospitality of  the baseball grounds   for a   camping  place and George  Riddle's  wood  pile  for fuel, fore bore their thieving propensities on the night they were here  because they were too closely watched,  but the number ot chickens which  disappeared from local coops on the  night following showed that they  hud doubled back on their tracks for a  night invasion that was only too successful. -No clothes lines that we have  heard of werer aided and circumstances  bear out the impression conveyed by  their personal appearance that they  had no liking for laundried apparel.  PLACES THE BLAME'  Continued from Page One  out this sniull-pox, and restrict it to  the narrowest limits. That was not  done, the disease has gradually spread,  and at last'it has required the energetic actions of physicians from a  neighboring country to. set our people  an example, and that a humiliating.,  one.  "What  first attracted the Canadian  officials  to Okanagan co'iinty  was the  appearance of small-pox at Keremeos,  where several cases have broken out.  Physicians traced np the source of the  disease  und discovered   that  the first  victim was a woman who had stopped  in a lodging  house in Oroville,   wheie  the first case in   this place  broke out.  The presence of small-pox at Keremeos  was  followed by  exaggerated reports  of  the  number  of cases in   Oroville,  and a member of the Provincial Board  of Health  came all the way from Victoria  especially  to make,a thorough  examination of conditions.    He found  that there  were only a very few cases  in and about Oroville, but what aroused him  and his associates was the discovery that the rooms from which patients had been removed had not been  fumigated  and  disinfected,   or no apparent elfort  made at strict quarantine, which was declared to be nothing  short of criminal   negligence, a. menace not only to the  health of the community,   but to all who  are compelled  to  stay in   Oroville.  over   night.      It  might be hard to fix the responsibility  for such shocking carelessness  in the  United States.   It would not take long  in Canada to fasten   the responsibility  on   the right person,  and  after once  established such punishment as would  prevent repetition   of the same oversight would be meted out,  and meted  out swiftly.  "However, notwithstanding the action of the Canadian authorities, the  small-pox situation is not causing any  great uneasiness in this place. It has  never taken the form of an epidemic,  and it is believed that if the proper  precautions had been taken in the first  place the disease would have spent its  force and disappeared with the first  patient."

There has been a regular nuisance of  late in town caused by clogs which  are allowed to roam at will all through  the. night. Many of the citizens aie  getting their shot guns ready, so those  owning the noble creatures should see  that the canines are safe abed before  they roll in themselves.  We are pleased to report no other  cases of small-pox. We are lucky, we  must admit, to have held it down to  tbe three. Nearly all in the district,  as far as we have been able to find out,  have been vaccinated. Some have had  very sore arms which have given them  a real tough time, especially among  the little fellows. Dr. Miller left for  the coast last week after putting in a  strenuous time in the valley. Another  doctor is expected in to take his place  shortly. The trains are still under  guru d of the special constables and no  one is allowed to cross the line unless  he shows his vaccination certificate.  William Mattice of-Winnipeg writing to his brother Albert here, states  that the car loads of apples  received  on the Winnipeg market were the best  quality  the dealers had  ever handled.  The Macintosh Reds  nearly  caused a  stampede.     One gentleman,  a prominent Winnipeg business  man,  seeing  some of these apples at the exhibition,  wrote a letter  to Mr. J. J. Armstrong  to  the  effect  that it was   the   most  beautiful fruit he had ever seen.   This  certainly sounds  good for the valley.  We are not able at the present to send  men  and pay  them to be  continually  at exhibitions  held at*different points  in  the  Dominion,  for  the heavy expense would fall on so few shoulders ;  nevertheless our fruit cannot be beaten.    The district, is free from blight or  diseases  of any  tree description  even  the  old  orchards  planted  twenty  to  twenty-five years ago  ha.ve never had  the slightest of tree diseases.     This of  course tends  to give us  the very  best  fruit that can be grown.    Now.it is up  to the  growers to look  carefully after  their orchards and  see that this good  record  of the.  best fruit and  cleanest  orcljards, is kept up and handed on as  time rroes by.  Mr. Warren stated that the new  bridge would be 1,000 feet long, and  he estimated cost when completed  will be between $573,000 and $1,000,-  000.
