Borden,  who was accompanied by W. H. Bergeron, the witty, talented member for  Beauharnois.  The committee of management at  Grand Forks made only one mistake  and that was in not having the meeting in the skating rink, for the public  hall which 'will-nominally seat 000 was  full to overflowing.  A special train on the C. P. R. from  Greenwood  brought a  large  number  A.

STAMP MILL FOR GOLDEN ZONE  Order Is Given to Jenckes Machine Co.  ���������Will Ship in Sixty Days.  Tlie visit to Hedley last week, of  Chas. Sangter has resulted in an order  being placed for a small mill on the  Golden Zone. Mr. Sangster represents  the Canadian Rand Drill Co., but as  they do not manufacture stamp mills,  he was authorized by the agent of the  Jenckes Machine Co. to put in one. of  their mills.  The order was placed by Paul Brod-  hdgen for himself and his co-owners,  Messrs. Marks and Murphy, and the  equipment consists of a. 5x7 in. double  cylinder hoist; 5 stamps of 1050 lbs.  each, with 10-stamp equipment; a 40  h. p. boiler and a 30 h. p. engine, and  a Wilfiey concentrator. The mill will  be shipped to Keremeos from which  point it will be hauled to the mine.  from that town, who arrived after the  meeting had begun, and they found to  their satisfaction that the committee  of management had very thoughtfully  reserved a certain number of seats in  front for them.  Ernest Miller, the president of the  Conservative Association, officiated  acceptably as chairman, and Martin  Burrill, who never disappoints his  friends, opened- the ball in what he  himself called a curtain-raiser, which  was clever and tactful as to matter and  considerate as to length.  The Conservative leader, in his hour  and a half speech, made an excellent  impression, even the better class of  Liberals (and by the way Grand Forks  Liberals have some very fine fellows  among them) being strongly impressed  with his absolute sincerity and sterling  worth. The ground covered by Mr.  Borden in his speech was much the  same as that dealt with by him at  other meetings in the province, full  reports of which appeared in the coast  papers.  The speech of Mr. Bergeron was both  clever and unique. While the speaker  was at the disadvantage of addressing  his audience in a language other than  his own, the French accent lent a particular charm, and would almost have  held the attention itself, but in Mr.  Bergeron's case that was not necessary  for the matter and the .manner in  which his facts were presented was  invincible. Good speakers declared it  the cleverest stump speech they ever  listened to, for while it entertained  and amused, it arraigned the administration with an array of hard facts  that were unanswerable. When Borden reaches the treasury benches and  leads the government of this country,  a post for which hois eminently fitted,  there will be no kick among the English-speaking people who have heard  them on this tour at any cabinet preferment or other post of honor that he  may have in store for his straight and  clever lieutenant from Beauharnois.  J. H. Bromley brought in on Saturday from his ranch up the river, the  champion potato of the season. It  weighed 2 lbs. 7 ounces, and was clean-  skinned and solid. The potato was of  the early rose variety, seed being procured from the establishment of M. J.  Henry, the nurseryman and seedman.  A couple, of beautiful specimens of the  Alexander apple were also brought in  by Mr. Bromley from his orchard.  These were taken from four-year-old  trees and they demonstrate the fact  that for fruit-growing and general  farming the Similkameen is all good.  Now that the regular trains are Dinning to Keremeos, the V. V. <& E. can  really be said to have given railway  connection to the Similkameen, for,  barring the stay over night at Oroville,  it is an easy matter now to reach  Boundary points.  Last week the  visit of the leader of  Federal Opposition  to   Grand   Forks  made it sufficiently tempting to make  the journey, and the. Gazette representative  took his initial  trip over  the  V. V. & E.   As the regular passenger  train was not put on until several days  later,  the part of tlie. route between  Keremeos and Oroville was made on a.  work train by the courtesy of Mr.  J.1  ���������H. Kennedy, the chief engineer of the  V. V. &'E., for whom  the train  was  run.    At first the  conductors on the  work trains were not disposed to prevent anyone who wanted a quick trip  to Oroville to ride with them (always,  of course, at their own  risk),  but. latterly some difficulty arose with the  U. S. customs,  and Capt. Reuger, the  collector    at    Oroville,    objected   to  the carrying of passengers.    Possibly  some who had been  thus obliged by  the  trainmen, may  have shown a disposition to take advantage, of the customs; but the mandate of Capb. Reuger had the effect of stopping passenger  traffic,  and but for the fact that the  Gazette representative travelled with  Mr. Kennedy and under his sponsorship,, with nothing contraband in his  possession,  the privilege'of using the  work train would not have been given.  The route from Keremeos down the  valley of the Sjmilkameen river is a  beautiful stretch of track.   Especially  on the Canadian side of the line is this  ;the case.   The road-bed is perfect, the  grade  almost  flat,   and   occasionally  stretehes of three  miles and over are  met of dead straight track,  a thing  rarely found on a railway following a  river bottom.   The excellent condition  of the road-bed reflects great credit  upon the superintendent of track, Mr.  Mainey,  under whose supervision the  track-laying, ballasting and surfacing  was carried out.    If trains on this section  of the road cannot make up a  good few notches of lost time,  it will  not be the fault of the road-bed nor of  the route as laid out by the location  and construction engineers.  One station, Delmar, on part of D.  McCurdy's place, divides the distance  between Keremeos and Chopaka (this  is the spelling adopted by the Great  Northern). The latter place is on the  boundary line, and the Canadian customs officer in charge is Walter Frith,  formerly of Coles <fc Frith, Greenwood.  Beyond Chopaka the valley narrows  and the route becomes more sinuous.  The most interesting features of the  route between Chopaka and Oroville  are the 11)00 foot tunnel at Shanker's  bend, and the Similkameen falls which  has been developed for power. Night-  hawk station divides the distance.  At Oroville the station has been  placed something of a mile north of  the old town, but all of the business  places formerly located in the old  town, prominent among which was  the Peerless hotel, have been moved  to the new town at the station, The  Peerless has been greatly enlarged and  is now a comfortable and apparently  well conducted hostelry, with no suggestion remaining of the ram pasture  which flourished in the construction  boom of two years ago, a vivid recollection of which remains with those  who had been thus housed. Beyond  Oroville the climb begins up the mountain to cross the divide between the  Okanagan and Kettle rivers. The altitude at Oroville is about 940 ft. above  sea level, while the summit on this  route at Molson is about 3,500 feet.  them is about 10 miles and the railway  mileage is 27, giving a grade whose  maximum reaches 2A per cent. The  road after leaving Oroville takes advantage of dry gulch and nine mile  creek, going back and forth from one  to the other, with occasional figure  eight-loops and scallops to overcome  elevation in the least compass. One  particularly interesting loop is at Circle City. Those portions of the route.  which go into the nine-mile basin, reveal familiar topography, and call up  recollections of the old trail which was  for decades the artery of trade. The  railway near Sidley approaches within  about 30 feet of the boundary line, and  could better its grade by crossing, but  the eternal customs nuisance forbade  crossing ofteher'..than is absolutely  necessary.       !   ,  The pass at Molson is held to be the  lowest of any in this range, and, as  Mi-. Kennedy says, "is found just  where one woidd expect it to be, and  that is.half-way between Bonaparte  and Bakly, the two highest peaks in  the range." It has been asserted that  the summit crossed by Odell's route  for the C. P. R. between Penticton and  Carmi on the West Fork of the Kettle  is lower, but Mr. Kennedy attaches no  credence to the claim ; and as this is a  subject which he has investigated fully  in the many reconnaisance trips which  he made before a final location was determined upon, it is pretty safe to conclude that if there was any easier route  to be had he would have got it.  At Molson for a piece the grade is  flat, and two miles east, the boundary  line is again crossed on the downgrade  for Kettle river.  The    country    around   Bridesville,  which is the first station on the Canadian side after  the   train   re-enters  B. C, gives evidence of good crops but  at that time���������the last week in September���������the crop had not all been harvested,   the   cool   moist weather of this  season preventing it from ripening as  soon as  it  did in other years.     At  Bridesville on the farm of Davey McBride a little village is springing up,  and  the railroad   has a   water-tank,  filled by gravity.   Here also a little  looping was done to overcome elevation, and on the morning  when  this  trip was made, the  train,  which had  been running in  the sunlight on the  mountain top, dropped down into the  cloud hanging on the upper and middle  stretches of Baker creek,  and this obscured somewhat   the  yiew   along a  portion of the route that we were most  anxious to see, for it was in the middle  of old familiar ground.     Not until the  train  stopped at   Myncaster,  on  the  western slope of Myer's creek, was the  writer able to recognize fully the location.   Between Bridesville and Myncaster the distance is 12 miles,  with  a  station, Syackan,   which is five miles  from Myncaster,  between, and along  this distance the work was particularly heavy, many big rock cuts and enormous fills  being everywhere in evidence.     This   work  was done  by T.  Gallagher's  men.    The  track  crosses  Myer's Creek valley to the east slope,  of same on a long curving trestle,   the  arc of which approaches within 20 feet  of the  boundary  line,  but   does  not  cross for the same  reason  already referred to in  connection with the location at Sidley.  Had they been allowed  to   cross   here   and   gone farther  up  Myer's Creek valley,  they could have  overcome much of the elevation which  farther on necessitated the looping at  Bridesville.  Myer's Creek valley near the month  .of .the creek narrows into a canyon, in  which is the 900 foot tunnel at the  mouth of which was that "ever-glorious, almost fatal fray" between Engineer Kennedy's huskies and the C.  P. R. mercenaries commanded by General Fred McLaine. From this spot  the train speeds on only a few minutes  more until Midway, the widely-pegged  city, heaves in sight.  Thus we have followed the line from  Keremeos to Midway, a distance of  about 97 miles, built by Mr. Kennedy  in about, two years time;, in the face of  many disadvantages and set-backs,  one uncontrollable delay after another  occurring to thwart his plans.    Labor i  TRAIN SERVICE TO KEREMEOS.  It's a Stub Train From Oroville, but was  Difficult to Arrange Otherwise.  The regular train service.. to Keremeos has now been in operation about  a week.  The Keremeos station is in charge of  W. E. McDaniel. an old hand with the  Great Northern, and thoroughly conversant with this "portion of the Great  Northern system, as he was formerly  at Grand Foi-ks and later on at Republic.'  The delay of starting the service for  about a fortnight before the first pas- .  senger train ran, was due to lack: of  rolling-stock, the. passenger touches  allotted to the S'. F. <fc N.-branch" being  needed for the Spokane Fair traffic,  and the engines were engaged atbal-  lasting and trimming up, the track between: Midway and Molson to get in  .shape for the winter.  The schedule north of Oroville pro-'  vides for a train to leave Oroville for  Keremeos at 9 a. m., reaching the latter station at 12:01. The distance is  given as 39 miles, which allows three  hours for the run or 13 miles'an hour  with stoppages, and given afair chance  ibis expected tot) that it will be able  to make it in that time. Returning, it  is timed to leave Keremeos at 4 p. in.  and arrive, at Oroville at 7 p. in.  This is considerable of a. disappointment to all who had counted on the  daily train from Spokanegoing clear  through to Keremeos the same day,  but, as explained by railway officials,  that would be a difficult task to accomplish with the one train crew, which  now makes the run clear through from  Spokane to Oroville, and if they were  required to run through to Keremeos  they would reach there after midnight  and have to start out again at 3 o'clock  in the morning.  While it appears inevitable that this  stub train service will be all that we  will get for a while, it is very probable  that the present timing may be changed so as to have the train leave Oroville early enough in the morning to  make Keremeos by S or 9 a.m. and not  leave Keremeos in return until 6 p. in.  This would permit running passengers  through from Keremeos to Princeton  after the arrival of the brain, and  would also make it possible to get from  Oroville. to Hedley and return in one  day. The Hedley Board of Trade has  already made the request for such a  change to be made.  During construction from Keremeos  to Hedley, and especially while track-  laying on that portion is being done,  the engine of the local passenger train  could be used for a portion of the day  in forwarding material and in running  the ballasting trains, and then when  the track is completed and train service is opened to Hedley, the railway  company may see their way to break  up the Spokane, train either at Grand  Forks or at Midway and employ an  additional train crew to run the Spokane daily on through to Hedlev in  the same day.  TO TAKE OUT ROCK CUT.  A Party of Swedes Has Taken Contract  of the Work at South  End  of Smelter Flat.  The first evidence of actual work on  the V. V. & E. in this vicinity which  the people of Hedley will see will be  that on the big rock bluff at the south  end of smelter flat. The contract has  been let to Gus Johnson, Chas. Olsen,  Chas. Dalien and three others.  The work which they have taken  embraces twelve stations, from 1772 to  1783, and will represent about 1200 feet  although all v.f it will not be equally  heavy. For a. considerable part, however, it will mean blasting a solid road  bed out of a perpendicular mountain  face, and the length of time that it  will take the track to reach Hedley  will be the time required by these  station-men to do this particular piece  of work, as the superintendent, Geo.  Cunningham, expects  to have all the  rest of the grades squared out and  has been scarce and inferior in charac- \ connected up by the time these men  ter, and the whole situation much less  The distance by wagon road between  favorable than when he built the  Phoenix branch in 1904 in about seven  months time.  are through.  The camp will go in as soon as Major  Anderson completes final right of way  arrangements, and he was expected in  yesterday for that purpose.

What lie  has already achieved is gratefully acknowledged by the best people in the  province irrespective of party. And  as British Columbia can never get  justice from the federal government  while its-representation at Ottawa is  d to   the   government   of- Mr.  WHO MADE THIS AN ISSUE  The Nelson   News  seems   to    think  that Pr.miier McBride  has no right to  to be heard   by   the   electors   of   this  province  on the  platform   with   Hon.  R. L. Bordrin, nor to take part in   the  discussion   of   fedeial   affairs against  the present administration  at Ottawa  no  matter  how   much    those   affairs  may effect  tho  welfare of   this  province.    "This," the News declares   "is  a   somewhat   ludicrous   attitude    for  Premier McBride to take  up  in  view  of his perfervid denunciation  of Ottawa domination at the   late  provincial  elections."    It further complains  that  ������������������Premier McBride intends to drag the  4 better terms '  question into the dominion ��������� fight, ' notwithstanding   his   repeated declarations that this is not a  party    question."      If     the     "better  terms"   question   is   not   only   to   be  brought in   but   is   in   the   dominion  fight, the responsibility for such does  not   lie   with   Premier   McBride   but  with the Liberals themselves and   the  onus of it must rest upon  Sir  Wilfrid  .Laurier, for his expressions of opinion  on the subject at  various  times   and  his actions at and  following  the Ottawa   conference   of    provincial   premiers :   upon   Mr. Tenipleman and the  other representatives of this  province  at Ottawa, and upon the Liberal press  ���������of British Columbia for  the  readiness  with which   they   would  always  take  their cue  from   Laurier and  Teinple-  uian  to  minimi/.e   the  importance  of  the  question.     Laurier    would   never  have dared to treat   this  matter  with  the degree of levity   which   he  did   in  the earlier stages, nor   to take the  determined stand   which   he   has   since!  done to prevent this   province   obtaining justice, had   he   not  heen   encouraged in such a course by  the  indifference and subservience  of the federal  i-epresentative.s from this province and  the Liberal press.     When representatives  of Premier McBride's   Government first went to Ottawa to  sue for  "better  terms"   they were  told  that  they had no mandate from the people  of British Columbia and  were advised  to go  home  and  secure such before  asking for "better terms".    This treatment was doubtless due to  the fact  that as the province had sent no representative to Ottawa   of McBride's  political faith,   and  Senator Temple-  man was making light of the whole  affair, it was  not necessary for Mr.  Laurier and his government to pay  any attention to the request made by  oppose:  McBride, ho would be remiss in his  duty to this province if he did not use  every effort in his 'power to see that  the rights of the province are upheld  and a representation elected in British  Columbia for the federal parliament  which will tell aiiy'government, that  may be in power there; that British  Columbia must have her rights.  Laurier has refused to ai bitrate the  question and lias refused even to investigate any further the bona fides  of British Columbia's claims. Mr.  Borden on the other hand has promised to give the matter the fullest investigation and deal with the question  on its merits. That is all Mr. McBride'  asks and that is why lie is on the public platform along with Mr. Borden.  1836  THE BANK OF  NOTICE.

Clark of Green  Mountain came in on Sunday on a flying visit to their daughter,'Mrs. W. J.  Forbes, and. returned home on Monday. They expressed gratification at  the many evidences of progress in the  valley since their last trip over.  The report current a few weeks ago  that the railway bridge over the Similkaineen at Armstrong's was to be  an iron structure was inaccurate. On  the bridge in place there are wooden  trusses, decked over with broken rock  to prevent danger troin fire.;  It is reported that Hans Richter  lost the championship belt for broncho  busting at the Victoria Fair to Tommy  Graham of South Thompson. Victoria  papers gave several accounts of the  contest, in all of which ho mention appeared to have been made of any failure on Hans' part to ride anything  given him, but on the contrary he  seemed to be setting the pace for the  best of them.

Mail for Boundary points and all  along the Crow's Nest is now dispatched southward by stage from Penticton and received by the same route.  This arrangement has been in force  for several weeks, but in the case of  newspapers it doesn't seem to have  quickened the time. Few of the Boundary exchanges come to hand any  sooner than they did before. Some  of them are one mail later, and some  fail to reach here at all. Possibly the  mail clerks on the Great Northern  and postmasters in Washington are  nob very well up on B. C. geography.

'."  , A very narrow escape from instant  death was experienced on Sunday last  by Harold Bowerman, who went up  Twenty-mile creek with his father,  Geo, Y. Bowerman, on a fishing trip.  They took along with them the rifle, a.  32-10, and Harold was carrying it while  his father was fishing. He had laid  the rifle down, and when one pool had  been, fished out and his father1'"had  moved on, Harold went to pick up the  rifle and,follow him. Catching it by  the muzzle he went to pull it towards  him when it came in contact with  something., and went off. The bullet  clipped off a button from bis jacket  and entered the fleshy pa rt of his neck.  The accident happened about- ten miles  up the creek, and his father brought  him home, carrying him a considerable  part of the way. . The wound appears  to be doing well. ���������  '������������������<������������������<������.��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ��������� ��������� ���������^���������������������������^^���������������������<������<������<t������o<������<fr-������<t><fr<t><-><  Heating Stoves!

Rev. J. Thiirbiu-n Conn arrived on  Saturday evening, direct from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to take charge of  the Presbyterian missions at Hedley  and Princeton. He held service in  Hedley on Sunday evening, and had a  fairly good congregation, which would  have been considerably augmented if  more had known that service would  be held. The Rev. gentleman succeeded in making a very good impression,  and while the country and its ways  are altogether new to him, he has  given evidence of his ability and readiness to adapt himself to his surroundings. His sermon was meaty, and delivered in a manner to hold the attention of his hearers ; and while his parishioners here are a mere handful in  comparison, with what he has been  used to in his native land, those who  heard him on Sunday evening or who  have met him since are satisfied that  his work in this field will be a pronounced success.

Mr. Thomas Cunningham, Provincial Fruit Inspector was here for two  days. He examined the trees in Richter's orchard and will likely give his  report, later. He also visited the Nursery arid other fruit lots. He complimented Mr. Boillard, agent for the  Oregon Nursery Co. on the fine stock  of trees and the clean appearance of  the lots.  Mr. Potts; of Minneappolis, with his  partner, Mr. McAtiley visited the mineral claims on Cedar Creek, and went  South on the V. V. & E. construction.

The arrival  of the   first   passenger  train is always an important event in  the  history   of   a   town.      Keremeos  passed that milestone on  Oct.  5th  at  noon.     The   station    platform    was  crowded with deeply   interested spectators to witness that event.     At the  east end of the   station   on   a   raised  stand there was a fine display of fruit  and vegetables. The Mad n tosh red and  Gravenstein by Mrs. Daly; an equally  fine assortment of apples and a cluster  of four large apples by the Beautiful  Valley Land Company ; a box of very  tempting grapes by Mr. F.
