While it has been common talk  about the streets that the Hedley Gold  Mining Co. were about to begin the  installation of a power scheme on the  Similkameen river, aiid. also that it  was generally known the plant would  he located below the mouth of Twenty  Mile, the Gazette refrained fenm making announcement without definite assurance as to details. These have,  however, now.been practically decided  upon with the mission of Mr. Mitchell  of Victoria, hydraulic engineer, who  was busy all last week making an inspection of the location and preparing  plans.  ��������� The scheme comprises a cement dam  on the river a little below'the month  of Twenty-mile, with a cement head-  gate on the north bank of the river  leading into a flume which will extend  down'the river- for 1800 feet to a bridge  and viaduct which will carry the flume  across to the other side of the river.  The conduct pipe of sheet metal over  the viaduct will be suspended beneath  the structure which will be 200 feet  long with three trusses and fitted for  a tr-iffic bridge on top with the lower  arc of the pipe suspended five feet  above the water at the highest known  The navy question  in Australia and  New Zealand is yet in the melting pot.  New  Zealand  has changed   her. programme moie than once and is not yet  clear as to   the future.     Australia has  begun.-to  organize a navy of men and  ships, but as yet is drawing,both largely from Great Biitain.    The Commonwealth, is  in   the early experimental  stage,    with successive   governments  tumbling after each other,  and much  searching of heart as  to  the future.  The premier of the other Dominion intimates that a local navy must be provided because  the Admiralty has sent  to the station ships that are too small,  while   the   High   Commissioner   has  made a speech taking the ground that  Dominion  representation  in imperial  councils should come before Dominion  participation iu Imperial defence. But  both New Zealand and Australia have  eurned some right to criticise.    They  have    maintained  their   own   self-respect by substantial  contributions to  Empire defence.     When a little country like New  Zealand  sends   to   the  Empire  navy, a ship like  that which  bears her name, she is entitled to take  time for a careful consideration of the  next step. ��������� News-Ad.yerti.ser.

The flume for  the rest of the way will be of lumber  7x8 and will extend down the river for  nearly three miles to a point opposite  Charlie Allison's where a power station will be put in on a plot 400 feet  by 450.  For this flume about a million and a  half feet of lumber will be required  and the cement used in the dam and  at the power house will likely total  about 3000 barrels. ;Electricity will, be  generated, at a voltage of 0600 volts  and will supply a 1500 horse power  unit.    ������   '.������������������'���������������������������'���������.  ':  The permission for right-of-way  comprising 16 acres of Indian lands  was obtaiued for a good fafc fee, the  Indians obtaining in addition the right  to use all the surplus water from the  spill-ways to irrigate their lands.  While Mr. Mitchell designed the  work and will furnish the working  plan 'Mi*. Knowles will be engineer  on construction. It is the intention,  to build the dam and the bridge this  winter and Mr. Jones' had arranged tp  put men to work this week, but he received a wire from the president to  close no contracts for labor or material until all rights have been secured  and the plans are approved. The directors meet in New York to-day and  it is hoped that final instructions for  full steam ahead may come to hand at  any hour now.  While no scheme for enlargement of  the mill has yet been decided on it is  generally believed that work for increasing the capacity of the mill by at  least 50 per cent will go forward hand  in hand with the installation of the  power plant. It is quite probable that  the working force this winter on the  dam and the bridge will be 100 men or  more and that force is likely to be  doubled in the spring.  What all this will mean to the town  and the whole district is not easily estimated. The company, have always  been disposed' to give local labor and  local institutions the benefit of all  that is going. They have been accused of bleeding the camp white and  taking everything to New York; but  the Similkameen valley will get' the  chance to supply all the lumber they  can and also the cement, and if we  could manufacture waterwheels and  generators there would be a show on  those too. This all supplies labor here  and labor is what every camp wants.  The amount of labor required to build  the flume will do the town far more  good than if steel piping were brought  in from the manufacturing centres.  Many of our readers  in Hedley will  remember   Jack  Sw-hisborough    who  was a   bar   tender   in   Hedley about  seven  or   eight   j-eais   ago.     Of late  years he has lived in Princeton around  the hotels there, and on Sunday night  last he committed  suicide.     On Monday morning about ton o'clock he was  found by Wm. Fearless  in the Similkameen  River near  the- pump house  and  with his  throat cut.     He was always  very dissipated  and  for a few  yeiir-s past the continual immersion in  booze'had   the   inevitable   effect   of  bringing on spells of delirium' tremens  attended    in   his   case   with   suicidal  mania..     On one  or more  other occasions he had attempted suicide by the  throat-cutting  route,   but never managed before  to carry out his purpose.  Poor Jack  was his own  worst enemy;  but he's sober at last, and the remorse  for a mis-spent life   was   bad enough  punishment  here whatever else there  may be in the, hereafter.     Why men  will allow the demon, drink, to obtain  this mastery over theni, with all these  examples  brought  before  them from  time  to  time,   is   a   mystery   of  the  mysteries.  MAYOR   GRUBB'S    INACCURACY  While readers of the Hedley Gazette were being told in last week's  issue byE. N. Grubb, mayor of Oroville, that the small-pox in that town  "was confined to three cases, all of  which were quarantined, and that  thirty,days had elapsed since the last  case had been quarantined and no new  cases had developed, it was impossible  that any danger to public travel could  result," an investigation showed that  another was then being placed under  quarantine and all who had suffered  from the exposure from this last case  as well as others who may have been  subjected to the same danger which  had produced the latest infection are  now liable during the entire length of  another period of incubation.  No doubt it is inconvenient and unprofitable to have small-pox in a, place,  but when the condition exists it is a  mistake to subordinate public safety  to a dollar and cent consideration. If  the public have evidence that honest  effort is being put forth to stamp out  the trouble and that there is no disposition to conceal or deceive they  will have far less fear than where a  doubt is left, and misrepresentation is  the great cause of doubt in such cases.  An article appearing iu coast papers  which we append is both mysterious  and disturbing so far as Similkameen  connection with the C P. It. is concerned. It is also a bit difficult to understand. Looking at the map it certainly would be ashoitcutto haven  railway corning from the Nicola Valley to the Okanagan and Boundary  come by way of Deep Cieek, but, what  of all the grading up Trout creek whicli  has been carried on by the Kettle Valley all summer? Is this all to he  abandoned?  Peachland is mentioned in connection with the new route but as Peach-  land is on the lake shore between the  mouth of Trepannier Creek on the  north and Deep Creek on the south  the new route would still leave Peach-  larid off the line.  In former times the short route  from the upper Okanagan to Princeton was by trail up Trepannier Creek  and if there wa.s any territory along  the route which could be opened up it  would have been spied out long ago  and some settlement made on it before now.  The item concerning the matter is  as follows:  Changes in the route of the Kettle  Valley railway, with a view to securing a shorter line from the. Okanagan  to Merritt than the original provided,  aro indicated by the announcement  that a route map was recently filed  with the authorities at Ottawa, showing a proposed railway, from Cold-  water Summit to Osprey Lake, near  the headwaters of Deep Creek, which  flows into . Okanagan Lake near  Peachland. The construction of a  line-from Peachland to Osprey Lake  would save a, long detour and open up  a stretch of new territory north of the  Hope Mountain route.  ,��������� The route of the Kettle Valley railway, us mapped out originally, merely skirted the shores of the lower end  of Okanagan Lake on the west side,  branching off from Penticton in a  north westerly direction and following  the course of Five Mile Creek to Tula  meen.  Reports of changes in the route  weie current a few weeks ago following a ' conference in Vancouver between Mr. J. J. Warren,..president of  the. Kettle Valley railway, and Mr. L.  C. Gilman, assistant to the president  of the Great Northern railway. It  was stated at that time that, an extension of the policy of building a  combined line over certain parts of  the Hope Mountain route for the V.  V. & E. railway (Great Northern) and  the Kettle "Valley railway, was under  advisement in view of the heavy outlay and difficult engineering features  on portions of tho line.  It is pointed out that the application for- a route between Cold water  Summit and Osprey Lake ni-ry be  merely to afford the Kettle Valley  railway an opportunity to make connections with the line as at present  planned in which case the original  route would be followed in a diagonal  direction to die lower end of the  Ok.-tnagun Lake. Changes in the proposed line were decided on a short  time ago by officials of the Kettle Valley line and the railway will, under  the recent arrangement, go further  north than on the earlier plans, and  serve Sumnierlnnd.  WORK ON K. V. R.  Boundary  and  Okanagan. Connection by  July 1914���������Through to Coast  Six Months Later  Penticton, B. C. Nov. 1st���������On the  Kettle Valley railway, on thu wusfc  fork of Kettle liver between'Beaver-  dell and the..summit, splendid progress is being made, and unless there  should be delay in the assembling of  material and the construction of the  huge bridge over ��������� Canyon Creek, on  the Penticton side of the Hydraulic  summit, trains should be running between Nelson and Penticton by July  of next year. The grade is already  finished to the summit and the steel  is within 10 miles. Three locomotives  employed on the ballasting and track-  laying are woi king out from Arlington  lakes, about 10 miles above Carmi.  where the operator is now stationed.  The framing yards are located at  Carmi, and as fast- as the bridge timber is framed it is being hauled to the  front. The work on the tunnel on the  Pen tic tan side of the summit is progressing' satisfactorily, and the only  possible hitch lies in the fact of a  possible delay in the arrival of material for the big Canyon creel; bridge or  some other circumstance which might  delay the construction.  Just what might happen is well il-  lustiated by the fact that as a result  of the carrying away of some of the  false-work of the Trout Creek bridge  by the flood last spring it was only  finished last week when it should  have been done by the middle of June.  Another reason for the delay lies in  the fact that a man fell off the steel  work some weeks ago and was killed,  and after that it was difficult to get  men to stay on the work. As the Canyon Creek revine is very deep, somewhat the same difficulties may happen to crop up there.  West of PentictoiA-i new track-laying'machine is now laying steel at the  rate of over a mile a day, but eight  miles beyond Trout creek there will be  another delay, on account of a small  bridge. The -contract has not yet  been let on the Cold water Junction-  Osprey lake section, in spite of the  fact that the coast papers have repeatedly, and in error, stated that the  last contract on the Kettle Valley line  has been let. It is expected that this  contract-'wil} be let shortly. It has  been definitely decided that the Kettle Valley line* will not go into Princeton, as was at first supposed.  LOCAL NEWS  HON.  PRICE ELLISON  FOR SENATE  Among the names mentioned for  senatorial appointment in this province is that of Hon. Price Ellison,  Minister of Finance and Agriculture.  The only objection Mr. Ellison's  friends could have is that the Okanagan would be lonesome without him  at Victoria. The province at large too  has benefited largely by his administration of his department. Yet the  senate nreds men like him.  Several tamilies of gypsies that  seemed of Dago extraction struck  town on Monday and they were without exception the toughest looking  bunch that have ever been seen in the  valley. Women, children and men,  but particularly the women and children were strangers to soap and water  and, appeared to he the most likely  carriers of disease and vermin that  could well be found. How they are  allowed to roam about the country at  a time when strict quarantine and  some regard for cleanliness is supposed  to be compulsory, is peculiar to say  the least. A government allowance  to stand the expense of turning  the hose on such as they, would seem  desirable provision. It is needless to  say there was an early morning roll-  call in most of the Hedley poultry  yards next morning.  No chief has yet been  appointed  on  the  Clm-chu-wa.y-ha rseerv.ition and  from all appearance the position  may  ���������not  be filled yet for a while.     The  delay is not due to lack  of candidates  so much as lack of suitability of any  material in sight.    When it comes  to  down right selfishness and dexterous  use - of   the big   mitt   your   modern  British Columbia. Indian   can    sometimes give  the  wliiteman  cards and  spades at the game of graft and  beat  him out.     Some  claim  that   history  shows the game of graft to he ancient  enough to be  venerable and that con-  ceity moderns should not claim   themselves the credit for smartness  which  they   do.       Whether    your   modern  Indian   has to use  the  "fine   Italian  hand" or the  tomahawk  he can get  there all the same,  when  the   opportunity presents itself.  We have been advised that our details were not quite right  with   reference to Canadian Bank  of Commerce  charging exchange on   road   cheques  that   are   drawn    on    the Penticton  branch of that Bank  where  the road  account is carried  and  marked   payable at par at all   branches   of   the  Bank.      It appears that  the Britis.li  Columbia government cheques  upon  which they  were charging exchange  wei-e those issued hy the  various government   agencies.     Just why there  should be that distinction between an  agency cheque and a road  cheque is  something we have not heard anyone  attempt   to  explain.   They are each  issued in payment of some service rendered to the government,and why the  one class of service should he regarded  as more valuable or more sacred than  the other.does not appear.    The difference between the two (whatever it be)  looks to   be very much  the same as  that     between*    tweedle-dum      and  tweedle-dee. r  THE HEDLEY GAZETTE,    NOV 0,  1913.

Those who know the  riding best are  well aware   that both ridings in Bruce  are  Liberal   in  their  leanings  and   it  was  only tho  grossest abuse, of trust  by the Liberals  when in olftce and the  faculty  of the  Liberal   leaders   to ge.t  the wrong side of mostly every question, which enabled the Conservative  party to carry any riding in the county at all.      In the  old days  before the  redistribution -of ISS'2  which gave the  county    three   representatives,    both  ridings went persistently Liberal until  in 1S78  the   late-Alexander Shaw defeated Edward Blake   ofi   the  National Policy, but as soon as the riding had  done its duty in disciplining the Liberal party for their wrong-headediiess in  that  matter  it  went   back to   its  old  allegiance and  R. M. Wells represented   the  riding  right along   until  the  1882 redistribution  gave  the  Conservatives a fighting chance,   but no sure  thing, and the late  Henry Cat-gill carried  it for  the   Conservatives.     The  Laurier  redistribution  of  .1904 which  cut off   the   extra   member   made  it  again  a Liberal   preserve,  and it was  otdy the reflex action  from the stench  of the old Ross government  that enabled   J, ,1. Donnelly to  carry the riding  in   1.908,   while   the   monumental  folly of the Liberal leaders in the matter of  reciprocity  easily accounts for  him repeating it in 1911. But now that  Reuben   13.   Truax   (popular   and   all-  powerful  as  a   canvassar   though  he  may   be)   has   no   earthly   chance of  working the country harm by his support of the scheme  for  carrying  out  Tuft's  plan    to   transfer all  Canada's  monetary  interests  south of  the -19th  parallel, it was the most natural thing  in   the  world  that  those  old   Scotch  . Grits  who couldn't be expected   to lie  comfortably in a Tory bed, would embrace the first opportunity to get back  to their Grit allegiance.  It is nonsense therefore to attach  any importance to the result so far as  either reciprocity or the naval bill are  concerned. The issue was in no sense  national but altogether parochial. W.  D. Cargill really made a grand fight  against so powerful an opponent when  The wisdom of ��������� cauterizing a  venomous bite instead of wrapping it  up in a rag and leaving it' to"' its silent  but sure work, is already seen in the  improved condition of affairs in the  lower Similkameen in reference to the  smallpox nuthieak. Both the Provincial and Federal boards are now  taking alive interest aud the situation,  is well in hand.' Dr. Miller ariived  from Victoria the middle of last week  and at once got busy. Vaccination  is general; the only two infected  households; are closely quarantined,  the trains are watched to prevent the  iniportal ion of fresh infection, and as  the twelve days' period of incubation  has practically expired without any  new cases being reported, .it begins to  look as if the danger is about all over.  But nevertheless there should be no  thought of relaxing a whit the vigilance for weeks to come. Therei is  nothing so.dangerous as a. feeling of  false security, and' until the breeding  ground to the south of the line has  been cleaned up by the rigid carrying  out of sane, vigorous sanitary measures, there will be no safety .--in allowing an open door.  Last week's Oroville Gazette tells of  the visit of a C.-inadian official to that  town on Sunday, Oct; 20th"who bad  gone there 16 investigate the situation,  and instead of keeping hits business to  himself and his eyes and ears open,  weultoa constable who,-like the Mayor  ! was interested in concealment'.'1' As  might be expected he. was given to understand that everything was lovely  and .expu-ssed himself accordingly.  Such an officer could come back talking  "pooh pooh" and accusing the doctor of  exaggerating the danger, but- to "pooh  pooh" in such a case is a. poo-poor way  of discharging his duty to the public.  "He jests at wounds who never felt a  scar," but the doctor who understands  what the thing means should be the  safest, guide to follow.  In conversation with Dr. Miller he  emphasized the point that the public  should not make the mistake of taking  it for granted that because-'one case  is mild, the next; one may not be of the  most virulent type. One of the  cases in Oroville to-day which was  contracted from a so-called mild type  is continent, und the next ��������� one is just  as liable, .to be of the hemhorage type  which is fatal in three days.  diei's Chorus'-from Faust also contrib-*  ii ted much to the success and enjoyment of,, the evening; the violin selec-  lion by*-'Mrs. Lyon was also much enjoyed. The proceeds amounted to  something "over $90.00 and as the es������  penses were small there was about  $78.30 clear.   ' ."'' - .,'���������"'  INDIAN SUMMER  "SCENE IN UNION DEPOT"  It seems very difficult to find  weather here in the interior of British  Columbia which answers .all the  characteristics of genuine Indian  summer as known to those hailing  the eastern provinces. \Varm sunny  days in September are frequently  miscalled Indian summer by those  who are not sufficiently versed . in the.  real qualities of the genuine article.  One of the requisites is either, leafless  trees or trees resplendent in their  autumnal garb of crimson and yellow,  and hence it was unusual io expect  Indian summer in the eastern province  until after one or more falls of snow.  This brought it'moslly in the' month  of'November, and as the early French  inhabitants of eastern Canada called  it the "'Summer of All Saints,"' that  would bring it in the mouth of November, for AH Saints -Day comes on  tho 2nd of November.  Sunshine there must be and balmy  air to mark the ginuine Indian, .sum-  in er, but it is not the -bright dazzling  sunshine of September or early October. A softer radiance only will fill  the bill and this has been variously  desciibed by poets and poetesses as  "that dreamy and magical light,"  ���������'purple haze", "smoky amber light"  and other life-like word pictures of  what it really is. Sunday last was  All Saints Day and the day had all the.  brightness of summer with a bit of  the nip of late autumn, but there was  still lacking that certain indefinable  mystic charm which goes with the old  time Indian summer.  Longfellow has beautifully described in Evangeline the Acadian Summer  of All Saints but no closer description  put in more appreciative diction could  well be found than in Susanna Moodie's  poem of which we cannot resist the  temptation to give a verse or two  "By-the purple haze that lies  On the distant rocky heights;  Hy the deep blue of the skies  By the smoky amber lights -;  Through the forest- arches streaming  Where Nature on her throne sits dreaming  And the sun is sc-ii-ccly gleaming  Through the olouploss snowy white,  Winter's lovely herald greets us  Kre the ice-crowned giant meets us.  *       - * * * *  A mellow softness tills the iiir  Xo breeze on wanton wings steal by  To break t'ne holy quiet there -  Or make the waters fret and sigh  *- *        --* -. *  This dreamy Indian summer day  Attunes the soul to tender sadness;  We love bub joy not in tho ray;  It is nob su-mor's fervid gladness  But a melancholy glory  Hovering softly round decay  Like Swan that sings her own sad story  Ere she floats in death away.

WATER NOTICE  This entertainment  which htid been  on the boards fur the past three weeks  or   more -was  given   to Lhe  public  in  Fraternity hall on Thursday night last  anil   brought out a  bumper house.    A  fortumate    combination   of    circumstances  contributed  to that end,  and  it  was  fortunate  also that  when the  bumper  attendance materialized they  were not disappointed in  tbe performance given and contrived to get an enjoyable  evening's   entertainment  out  of it.     Apart from   the movies  it was  the   first    entertainment   which   has  been  given  for months;  the proceeds  were'to be  devoted to a  laudable purpose;  it  was  gotten   up   by Mr. Fan-  who  in his comparatively short residence,  in    Hedley   has   accomplished  much  in  the  way of getting   the ini-  provemento made which have effected  such a  transformation, in   the  church  and in  improving the service  of song.  All this the  people of Hedley felt was  deserving  of due  recognition   byway  of   showing   their   appreciation,   and  they showed   it in the.  most effective  way  by their  presence.     Then   there  was   the curiosity  to sen what sort of  fist Mr. Fan-  would make  in the role  of stage   manager as well;   and considering the  disabilities   he had  to contend with  he made good  in this  also.  Tho stage   limitations for a  cast   of  thirty performers was serious in itself,  and to expect perfection or even more  than an occasional gleam of histrionic  talent in an  aggregation  ranging all  the way-from kiddies to staid matrons  hustled   together in  so  short  a time  was   to expect  too much.     As for the  piece there was really  nothing in it to  give  opportunity   for the display   of  superior powers of acting, and in parts  it  was  the   double-distilled   quintessence of silliness, but nevertheless there  was a certain amount of absurd naturalness about the thing which made it  he ran   within 124 in a riding that has | go  a population of about 32,000.  Two quartettes, a solo and the "Sol-1 deal  Some days ago a chimney sweep  from Vancouver with the customary  tall hat made a picturesque appearance on 'the*" streets, but it is not to  discourse on the art of chimney sweeping or philosophize 'on the lives of  those who follow, the trade that we  make mention of the circumstance,  for good old Charles Lamb hits-attended to that. Whether he got employment enough while here to make  it worth his while to come iu, we do  not know, but it is a pity if he didn't.  Neither do we think that he rustled as  hard for business while here ' as he  might have done, for there were a  good many who did not kno,w he had  been here until after he bad gone.  While, every householder has to look  after the cleaning out of his own  chimnies as they have to do in the absence of the chimney sweep, there are  bound to be a good many flues that  receive no attention and a foul chimney is one of the most fertile causes of  fires. With modernte firing in moderate weather, even a foul chimney  may go along for weeks and months  with little trouble, but as soon as a  cold snap comes along and heavy firing  is resorted to in order to maintain the  necessary -nnount of warmth, a spark  will start the. inflammable soot and in  a few minutes the chimney becomes a  kiln with a degree of heat in its interior that it may be able to stand and  may not. If not, a, fire is the.result;  the owner and the insurance company  are both losers and tbe affair is reported in tbe company's annual report  as caused by 'defective chimney" when  it might more truthfully lie put down  as "careless owner". Every chimney  should be cleaned once a year and the  stove-pipes several times during a winter. One of tbe times should be between the first of September and the  middle of November. In fact it would  pay the insurance companies to allow  the assured one half the chimney  sweep's fee for an annual cleaning out  of the chimnies. The. insurance companies would be in pocket at the end  of the year as a result and the fire  waste would be reduced by a   great  A IMPLICATION for a licence to bike unci use  -rx- a lid to. store or pen back water will be  made under the "Water Act" of-British Columbia, as follows:���������  1 The name of the applicant is E.

Jones went over to Penticton  last Thursday in the company's car  and returned next day.  The moving pictures this week will  be in the Star Theatre, corner Scott  Avenue and Webster St.  31rs. A. AV. Blanchard of Chelan,  Washington, is visiting her daughter,  Mis. II. E. Hansen, at the Great  Northern depot.  The B.C. Portland Cement Co. is  reported to be running full time and  turning out a huge tonnage of an excellent grade of cement.  .Work in the road camps is practically at an end i'or this year. The end  of the week saw most of the men laid  off in Harry Rose's camp near Bromley's and all the stuff will, be moved in  this week to be stored away.  W. C. McDougall of Princeton was  in town on Thursday last on business  with the Hedley Gold Mining Co. He  reports the B C. Copper active and  predictsextensivo operations by that  corporation during the coming year.  ��������� Mr-; and Mrs. J. A. Shnberfc arrived  in Hedley on Monday evening from  Armstrong where they spent a few  ���������days with Mr. Shubert's brothers.  Mrs. Shubert and the children will  remain a while in Hedley before going  back to Tulameen. The loss of their  boy Jimitiie Nlisis been a severe blow  and a few weeks among former friends  ��������� will be best for all at the present time.  Mrs. A. McGibbon left for Lachute,  Quebec, on Friday last in company  with her niece, Miss Mitchell, who has  been staying with her in Hedley since  early summer. Miss Mitchell has been  very ill for the. past few weeks, and as  she preferred to go back to her home  in the east, Mrs. McGibbon went along  to lake care of her by the way.  Dr. McEwen has been- requested by  Dr. Montizaiubert, of Ottawa, Director General of Public Health for the  Dominion, to take charge of the quarantine work of the villey. The Doctor-  has undertaken to do so but will do  the work all from Hedley, as he does  not feel disposed to be away from here  owing  to   the  work  he has on hand.  Mr. N. Thompson of-Vancouver who-  who is the British-Columbia-represen-,  tative of Cammell, Laird <fc Co., .the  English Steel manufacturois, and who  was in Hedley"last week on his annual  trip through the district, is au old-  timer in the. province. His firm  supplies the shoes and dies which have  been stamping out the gold in the  Hedley Gold Mining Company's stamp  mill for several years past and he likes  to come around every year to see a  live camp and note how his pioduct is  doing its work.  Mr. and Mrs. L. K. Fair left on  Eridny morning last in the auto with  Horner McLean i'or Penticton.    They  at Pen  Chief Constable Simpson was in  town on Thursday last. He came in  with Dr. Miller to look into the matter of quarantining the district  against the importation of any unnecessary small-pox from Washington state and to provide Dr. Miller  with whatever constabulary service  he required in connection with his  work of dealing with the small-pox  situation.  ' Hunters one and all report that the  number of grouse in the district is  greater than for some time past, and  they account for it in the number of  owls that have been killed for the  bounty on theni. It was generally  believed that the government made a  mistake when the bounty was thrown  off last January, for if the owls begin  to increase it is a very sure thing that  the grouse  will decrease in like ratio.  Frank Bailey had the misfortune to  be thrown from his horse  on Monday evening in the vicinity of Five Mile and from the, fall  he sustained a broken leg. The accident occurred near the same place  and in much the same way as that  which befel W. J. Forbes. Fortunately Mr. G. P. Jones who was going  to Princeton in the auto came along  and conveyed him to the hospital  there.  A couple of .men from Vancouver  who were taking a tour through the  district on an auto, a little over a.  week ago and left here for the Boundary Creek country, came to grief on  the Osoyoos hill���������or at least their car  did. They had nearly made the top of  the hill when some part of the.organism went radically wrong rendering  the car uncontrollable and the only  law that then came in force was the  law of gravitation. A badly wrecked  car wa.s the result.  A young chap named Joe Garrison  was fined $50 and costs for acting the  fool on the road between Princeton  and Tulameen. He was riding in an  auto and met constable Wolford,  recently appointed to Tulameen who  was driving with his wife. The auto  was handled as if to deliberately scare  the horses, and in addition the culprit  fiied in the air several shots from a  revolver in quick succession which  caused the horses to run away, and  f Mrs. Wolford was thrown and injured.  Garrison was landed in the coop at  Princeton,   and   for   his   folly   was  ! given a fine of fifty dollars aud costs.  intended to remain a while  ticton and also at Armstrong and at  several other- places before reaching  Ontai io about the middle of December.  Aurore, Ont, is to be their home, provided they can stay in the east^after  having a taste of western life. Mr. "and  Mrs. Fan- ni.ide many friends in  Hedley during their stay and on  Thursday evening last after the entertainment they"were presented with  a well-filled purse in token of the esteem, in which they were held.  The moving pictures last week were  a bit above the average. The topical  views were varied and of genuine interest and the pictures plain. Reviews  of troops and veterans by King George  gave the audience a glimpse of functions that were rare arid worth a great  deal to see. The rock-drilling contest,  however, which had been one of the  sights in connection with some coronation celebration looked tame to  Hedleyites who were accustomed to  seeing something livelier inth-it line.  The duffer who wielded the hammer  didn't seem to he hitting either fast or  hard. This week it is decided that  the show will be held in the new building.  Doesn't our cotem. of the Penticton  Herald think that the word "epidemic"  was a bib recklessly used in dealing  with the small-pox at .Keremeos in  that flaring head-line of last week?  The word comes from the roots "'epi"  meaning upon, and "demos,' the  people. Now three patients housed  up in two households, both of  which are closely quarantined, have no  more light to be considered the  people of Keremeos diseased with the  small-pox, than the proverbial "three  tailors of Tooley street" had the right  to address themselves to parliament as  "we the people."  Con McKinnon had the misfortune  to get a blow from a piece of rock  which stiuck him in tho blind eye  while he was working on the Oregon.  As it was giving him considerable  pain Dr. McEwen advised taking it  out, aud on Sunday last the operation  was performed, when it was found  that on the back of the eye-ball a small  piece of rock had remained there since  the explosion in which he lost the  sight of that eye a few yeais ago.  The blow from the piece of rock  received recently had evidentlyshifted  the position of the former piece and  was causing the pain he was experiencing. He has rested well since the  removal of theeye.and will doubtless  be around in a few days again.

They  will   build a good  camp, and then get  busy in a mining way.  Robt. J. McCurdy has been appointed special constable to be on trains between Oroville and Bridesville to see  that none cross the Boundary without  vaccination certificates.  Mos.es St. Charles hail the misfor-'  tune to break his leg last Sunday  evening. How it just happened it is  hard to say but Mose says he slipped  when he was watering the big team  in tlie barn.  D. .7. Taylor, of the Similkameen  Fruit Lands Company, is back from  Winnipeg. As he went right out to  the ranch on bis return we have not  been able to get a report of how Keremeos fruit landed on the Winnipeg  market and how things are in general.  Theie is a subscription list out to  get enough spondulix together to  build a stable alongside of, the Church  to shelter tbe horses driven hy it few  of the church goers. Those who are  not lucky enough to boast of a horse  are invited to buy one and get in the  game; no extra charge.  The latest news from the quarantined houses is that all patients are  doing well. Mrs. Crooker is feeling  cmite well; Mr. Crooker has got over  it and Miss Bromley is looking fine.  Pete Bromley says he is losing bis  appetite on account of the enforced  idleness but by all appearances he is  looking as if he gets away with half a  beef a day.  Mrs. James Fleming of Winnipeg  accompanied by her daughters, Doris,  Agnes and Alice Fleming, is visiting  her sister, Mrs. Walter Frith. Before  coming here, they have been spending  a very pleasant time camping out in  the Kettle A7alley with-Mr. and Mrs.  (3. JE. Shaw of Greenwood. Mr. Shaw  has a party of surveyors working in  the vicinity.  The following instructions were sent  out by Provincial Health authorities.  "All persons travelling into Canada  from the United States will have to  produce certificates of vaccination,  when called upon by the constable on  duty, and if unable to produce it, will  haye to return to the United States.  Certificates must be dated within six  months of time of presentation."  Hallowe'en has come and not quite  gone, for there are a few buggy shafts  still sticking over different roofs. We  have not climbed up far enough to  find out whether there are nny rigs  behind the shafts or not. Jim, the  Chinaman, reaped quite a harvest  sifter the E'en cleaning wintows.  "Heap.clazy, what for boys come put  heap big lodesclaper flontee post of-  ficee; big wagon flontee bank; me no  can move em, hav to climee over so  can get in to cleanern bank up. What  for heap el.-rzy come my house night,  throw big stone; me heap scared'" Jim  was right for all these things happened and many more.  Last Saturday a bunch of gipsies  struck town and the women folk of  the party got to business right away  telling '.i few fortunes and roping in a  few easy sheckles. They might have  .struck the town, again on their departure but the things we learned  about these cumbersome wanderers  was not forgotten and so a sharp lookout was kept around the camp. They  managed to get O. H. Carle's greenhouse stove on one of the wagons, but  being told that unless they were go-  in"- to raise early cucumbers they had  Tlie large headline in the Penticton  Herald of the "small pox epidemic at  Keremeos" is enough to scare the  lights out of the tiaveUing public. We  wish to state that up to the present  Keremeos ; has had no outbreak of  small-pox but it is in the district as  reported in last week's issue. There is  up to the present no other cases than  the three reported. It is reported  from Penticton that many travellers  have turned back on hearing the news.  Unless they wish, to go out of the way  to catch it they still can come to  Keremeos and join the G.N. railroad  without stopping to test any patient's  .pulse. As the editor writes, in last  week's issue, "the truth is the best,"  and we wish to give the facts, especially in these cases. /Yet nt the same  time we don't wish to be niisiepresent-  ed in any paper as if we wet e a leper  colony. Dr. Miller has been .very busy  vaccinating in both the upper and  lower towns. Old and young have  gone, through the 'ordeal; some take  and others don't; nevertheless we are  here because we're here and it good  bunch of live ones are left yet. Our  sister towns are in a.trance, but the  light will dawn, so if you happen to-  see a healthy Keremeosiiin in your  midst, please don't get too scared and  turn liver-and die. *'  In the daily papers which arrived in  this valley, it was found,  on Monday,  October 2Stb,   fiveinches of news bad  been given out consisting-, of criticisms  by a Mr. Grisdale, of the Scott Wholesale Fruit Co., Winnipeg.     We would  like to ask the  gentleman  in question  where   be got  his  information  in   regard to the shippers of Keremeos neglecting  the  Grand Forks  market and  shipping past  there to  Rossland and  Trail ?     Sixty-one   boxes   of   peaches  only  were shipped   to   Rossland and  eleven were shipped by private parties  to  Trail.    Now  in   the face  of this it  does  not look as if the shippers were  overlooking  Grand  Forks  who   have  received eighty per cent of the peaches  shipped from here.    There were times  that  Grand Forks  could not  be supplied for  the reason that the fruit did  not  come  in   as  fast as   anticipated.  Under ordinary circumstances we find  out all  orders would  have been filled,  but as  the weather was not so favorable at  the time,  fruit came  in very  slowly.     Then   would  come some exceedingly warm weather which in one  day  brought  in   hundreds of   boxes.  These days, then, there would be.'more  than  enough for one day's supply for  Grand Forks, Greenwood, etc.    It is a  pity  that some  wish to  talk through  the press on subjects they aie not well  enough acquainted with.
