The gravel bank which it has  been working on represents an alluvial  beuch of large area and of a height  that will, require a cut--about. GO feet  deep ill places. The shovel attacked  the eastern end of this cut and took out  sufficient material to grade up about  half a mile or more of track.  This long eastern fill completes the  grade to. the point left off by No. 2  Camp, on Mi*. Daly's ranch, with the  exception of a few yards which will be  done this-week by plough and scraper  work in about two days. There being  no further need for the shovel on the  eastern side, and the horses being  pretty well played out with the long  haul and insufficiency of cars which  compelled them to trot in with the  trains of empties in order to keep the  shovel going, the horses will bo permitted to rest up for a couple of weeks  while the shovel is cutting a way for  itself between the steep bank and the  river and wasting the dirt into the  river; until it gets around to the western side > and starts in again on the  road-bed to work eastward through  the remaining portion of the bank.  While there is no veiy deep filling on  The Similkameen and Its Beds.  SOME TRACK-LAYING NOTES.  .'        ���������     By Horace F. Evans.  The main branch of-the Similkameen  is enlarged by the addition of the  Tulaineen, which has its source in  about latitude 49: 30, longitude 121.  It unites with- the south forks of the  Similkaineen at Princeton, B.C, and  the 'combined streams flow in a generally 'southeast direction, finally emptying into the Okanagan a few miles  Entrance of Track Into Molson���������Progress  of Ballasting, Telegraph and  Other Work.

This would require  190,000 square yards of graved from  tliis bank, and after this has been  completed there will still be abundance  of gravel left in the cut for ballasting  many miles of the track up and down  the river, that will be taken out later  by the ballasting trains after the track  has been laid.

It stands  "������������������ to reason that a tree planted in the fall becomes  settled and ready to grow in the spring, when climatic  conditions are suitable. Why plant a tree in the spring  that is half dead when planted, through being out of the  "���������round from four to six weeks, besides being over-taxed  at tin.' fumigating station, when you can  GET YOUR TREES  RIGHT AT HOME  and have them already acclimatized. Wo have 200,000  trees now ready for planting and guarantee all trees  planted  in  the  fall.  Wo make a specialty of Hedges and now have on  hand, ready for shipment this fall, 1,000,000 plants.  When hedge is complete under our patent, it will turn  all ordinary stock, such as horses, cattle and hogs,  and adds beauty to the home.

WHEN   ANSWERING   ADVERTISERS,    MENTION   THE    GAZETTE  Last week's issue of the .Jimmy���������  Mrs. Jimmy���������Howse hurdy gurdy,  would look very much as if that paper,  with a change of editor, had been  going from bad to worse. It is of no  interest whatever to the public who  owns or who does not own the Gazette,  but there was no need for the new  editor of the Star to lie about it. To  show him that he did lie in that"  matter, the interest held by the editor  of the Gazette in the business is about  equal to that of all the other stockholders combined. How much of the  stock of the Okanagan is held by the  Kennedys?  The new twinkler thinks it all right  for J. A. Macdonald, leader of the  opposition, to oppose an eight-hour  day in .smelters in 1905, when the men  were being worked twelve hours a.  day, and to vote for an eight-hour day  and pretend that he was the whole  push in 1900, after the -men had got  their eight-hour day by mutual agreement with the smelters, independent  of him (See Hawthornthwaite's statement). Here, with a vengeance, was  the. case of the patron who would  watch with indifference the struggles  of a drowning man, and when he  reached the shore unaided, " burden  him with help."  The whole question of Macdonald's  conduct in that matter, when put in a  nutshell, goes to show that he is altogether,   narrow and  sectional  in  his  views, and, as such, is unfit to he intrusted with the. affairs of the whole  province.    The main difficulty in the  way   of  granting an  eight-hour day  was  in consideration  for the British  Columbia coast smelters that had to  enter into competition witli the smelters at Everett and Tacoma.   For them  to work an eight-hour day while the  Tacoma  and   Everett  smelters were  running 12 was to run the risk of having American smelters underbid them  with a lower smelter  rate   and   get  British Columbia ore awav from our  own smelters, to the loss of this province.   With this condition of affairs  kept  in   mind,   Macdonald's conduct  becomes wholly indefensible, inconsistent and altogether unstatesmanlike.  A man like that, who can't see over  his own front gate, is not fit to be intrusted with the affairs of the province.  [ south of the international boundary  line in longitude 119 : 30, and thence  via the Okanagan into the Columbia.  Thus the Tulanieen branch of this  river rises in British Columbia as  mentioned, and the south forks has its  source in Washington at an elevation  between 3,500 and 1,500 feet in the  mountain near 48 : 40. A number of  small creeks contribute to give volume  to this branch. It has been described  as a broad feature well adapted to  serve as a natural boundary between  the Okanagan cuts and the Hozomeen  range.  A,-number of important tributaries,  the largest being Five Mile, Twenty  Mile and. the Ashnola, empty into the  combined stream with a .distance from  25 to 30 miles from the confluence at  Princeton.  It could, therefore, be noted that  the Similkameen belongs to the class  of international streams beginning  with Rainy River on the Minnesota  and Ontario borders, including the  Red River of the north, the other  streams intersecting the international  boundary on the Montana frontier,  and the importaiVtColiunhia, Okanagan and Similkaineen international  drainage system of the far west.  The meandering of the Similkameen  system of rivers is, therefore, extensive. With its Tulameen source in  latitude 49 : 20, longitude 121, its south  forks source in.latitude about 48 : 40,  longitude 121, its vagaries are in full  accord with the mountainous topography which it sculptures.  It is not, therefore, surprising to  find that railway engineers experience  much difficulty with grades and curves  and other physical obstacles incidental  to mountainous countries. The future  traveller will find the scenic quality of  the Cascade region especially attractive, and it will be a long time before  the novelty will have worn down to a  stale monotony.  It is not surprising to find that in  the course of neons and ages the Sim*  ilkaineen in all its clivisi ons has changed its course from causes that are  plain to the geologist.  The channels noted may he regarded  as old, older, oldest, in point of geologic time. The pebbles in evidence  are of all sizes, all are more or less  water worn and vary as much in composition as those of the beds of the  present time. As the same processes  went forward similar results must he  recorded.  The Plutonic masses that were intrusive of older rocks in a time inter-  Molson Independent of .Sept. '28th.  Okanagan county is at last connected by mil with the outside- world.  Tuesday night of this week the steel-  laying crew of the V. V. & E. road  reached the international boundary  line, two miles north of Molson. The  next morning work was commenced  on the American side, and by ton  o'clock Thursday the first locomotive  to enter.Molson was puffing away on  the station grounds.  ���������.Steel-.for the various sidings and the  big Y will be laid at once and the  work-continued towards Oroville.  Chief Engineer Kennedy and a number of his'.subordinates came in over  the new line yesterday on a. tour of  inspection,   returning   to   Ferrv   last.  On Monday, the Great Northern  bridge crew, consisting of 30 men  under Robt. McDonald, came up from  the.work across the line, having completed the last bridge in Canadian  territory. They went down the line  towards Oroville and are now at work  on the first large bridge in that direction���������about seven miles from Molson.  The telegraph is closely following  the steel-laying machine. A crew'of  a dozen men are at work this side of  MeBride'*- place installing pole.-,, stringing wires and putting in a complete  line. O. E. Statroeu has charge of  the work.-' Mr. Statroen was in town  Monday and reported that he expected  to reach Molson by the middle of next  week if nothing happens to prevent  the present rate of progress.  The work of ballasting is being car  ried on to the best possible advantage  with the limited amount of help obtainable. Up to the time of going to  press the road had heen ballasted as  far as McBride's but it will probably  be a couple of weeks before it is done  as far as Molson.  The steel-laying crew has been camped at McBride's place for some weeks-  past, but their camp will be moved  either to-day or to-morrow to Molson.  It is understood that work will soon  be commenced on the depot at this  point. The Myncaster depot was completed last week.  One of the steel-laying crew was  seriously if not fatally injured Monday  night, by falling off the high grade at  the end of main street. When found  in the morning his legs were totally  paralyzed. He was taken to the hospital at Midway, and a late report  from there states he is a. critical condition. . *  MORE C. P. R. OBJECTIONS.  Who Is Delaying Construction ?  the. beginning of the Cretaceous must  have materially changed the course of  the. Similkameen and tributaries then  existing. Some of these changes are  in evidence to-day, some have been  partially and others wholly obliterated.  Sections of the. river course of the oldest time at which there was a river  there, may be in evidence but they are  dim and uncertain. The metamorph-  ism has been pretty thorough so far as  the topography is concerned.  On the bed of the Similkameen, a  few miles east of Princeton, the following named float rocks have been  noted, all more or less rounded and  water worn ���������  Granites, chiefly biotites and of various shades, such as brown, red, gray  and dark ; porphyries of various colors,  occasionally red, often brown, chiefly  of the. quartz class. These rocks appear to be plentiful in the neighborhood of cross courses, which are conspicuous features in this neighborhood.  Old calcareous sediments, often highly  silicified and reticulated by former  veins of calcite, often now silicified by  heated waters, occur. The type that  is reticulated with these silicified vein-  lets are copper-hearing, but it does not  follow from this that other rocks do  not carry copper. There has been no  scientific prospecting in the neighborhood and the development work done  Continued on Pnere Four.  And now it is rumored that the  C. P. R. is raising objection to the  plans of the V. V. <fc E. at six different  points on or near Brushy Bottom.  Evidently the V. V. & E. have delaved  so long the construction of this portion, waiting patiently for the O. P. R.  to raise some more objection, that the  latter rather than disappoint them  have at last done so. ������  And just here it is pertinent to ask  who is x-unning'the building, or rather  non-building, of this piece of road anyway ?   The Gieenwood Times and the  Nelson   News   evidently   take   it  for  granted that it is Pat Welch, and not  the Gre.-'.t Northern, and according to  the  Greenwood  Ledge,  which   refers  to Mr. Ross as the. " member for Pat-  welch,"   they ought   to   know.     The  News     interviewed    Pat   Welch   in  Nelson, and complacently accepts the-  completion of the track into Keremeos  as an appropriate time to begin construction north of Keremeos, and the  former equally as complacently accepts  Oroville,  while it was understood for  months that the  Great Northern   intended to have the work  proceed as  soon as the track reached Molson.    It  wouldn't be a had idea for Mr. Ross to  rattle up his constituency.  The Scotchmen of Hedley are talking about getting up a, St. Andrew's  dinner this year. While the Scotoh-  mer are getting ready the haggis, the  Eerish an' a' the ither folk will cultivate a Scotch dialect and a. relish for-  glenlivet. THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   OCTOBER 11,    1906.

AND  The Victoria Times is always  unfortunate in its treatment of  the question of "better terms,"  and the rebuke which the Colonist administers to it is most  timely. In fact the Times editorials are fearfully and Avond-  erfully made. When they are  Jnot a repetition of what John  Cameron used to grind out on  the Loudon Advertiser in the  early eighties and which the  more astute Liberals of to-day  would want to keep buried a  hundred fathoms deep, they are  marvels of indiscretion in their  treatment of present day problems.  Because a Liberal administration is in power at Ottawa and  a Conservative administration  at Victoria, that is deemed sufficient reason by the editorial  writer on the Times to play the  traitor to this province when  the interests of the province run  counter to those of the administration at Ottawa. But possibly the Times editor is only taking Ins cue from the boss who  is liimsell: known to possess peculiar ideas on the subject of  "better terms" for British Columbia. There is an old adage  which says "when the liquor is  in the truth will come out," and  it was when drunk with the  success at the polls which gave  to Laurier a "solid seven" from  British Columbia, that Senator  Tenipleman (he was then with  the old ladies) in scoffing at the  claim for 'better terms' in much  the same vein that has charac  terized the recent utterances of  the Times, went a little further  and gave expression to the covert threat that British Columbia would have to buy its right  to. fair treatment, by voting as  the government at Ottawa may  want us to vote so as to elect a  Grit government at Victoria for  them. Do the free-born electors  of British Columbia relish the  idea of being dictated to in this  A short time ago the Greenwood Times referred to a revolt  of Penticton socialists against  the rule of J. H. Hawthornthwaite. For obvious reasons  the Times didn't go into details  to state who who the socialists  were who were repudiating the  leadership of the member for  ���������Nanaimo. Had it attempted to  do so,' doubtless it -would be  found that the fulmination of  the Penticton socialists against  Mr. Hawthornthwaite, referred  to by the Times, would be something like that of the "three  tailors of Tooley street," who  commenced their manifesto  with the words, "we the people.'  J. H. Hawthornthwaite is this  week at Nelson attending the  big socialist convention for the  whole of the province, at which  Nanaimo and Vancouver socialists are to be represented, and  he appears to be as important  in the deliberations of that body  as ever he was. Will Penticton  socialists be represented there,  or will they be so unkind as to  throw a wet blanket "over the  whole affair by witholding their  countenance.  37-40  Apply to C.

The third boiler of the Daly Reduction Company's steam plant is being  installed.  O. E. Oliver was over at Danville,  Wash., last week, examining a. property for some capitalists in the old  country.  T. Brown has been giving his dwelling on Ellis Avenue a verandah and  a coat, of paint, which has greatly improved the appearance.  D.

Steam was up in the Hedley Lumber Company's sawmill last week, and  .the planer was in operation. There  is a strong demand for lumber, and  builders are impatiently waiting for  the necessary supply.  A. K. Anderson left last, week for  the Coast. He couldn't see much comfort ahead in hiking over the Hope  trail in.October, and so decided to ride  his pony to Spence's bridge and take  the train from there.  Geo. Bowerman, who has been in  ���������charge of central station on the gravity tram for about a year left on  Monday for:Kruger Mountain where  it is his intention to' work with his  brothers Harry and Burns in taking  out ore and getting it ready for shipment when the track reaches Oroville.  It is noticed that Princeton coal for  the coming winter's fuel supply is commencing to come into town. The cost  of freighting it from Princeton makes  it $13.00 per ton laid down in Hedley,  but if a ton of it is equal to 2A cords of  wood as it is claimed, it would leave it  .still cheaper tluvo wood at $7.00 per  cord.  Last week a big slide of rock came  down on the workings on Mr. Brad-  shaw's claims up Twenty-mile. Fortunately the. two men who are working for him were not in the cut at the  time or they would have been buried  in the slide which has so completely  covered up the present "workings that  another tunnel will have to be started  in a new place to reach the same body  of ore.  Lumber is needed for the V. V. <fc E.  <construction camp at Keremeos to get  ' the quarters in shape for severer weather. The tie-up turned the attention  of the railway builders to the mills'hi  Penticton where they will obtain their  supply unless a sufficient quantity is  ���������obtainable at Hedley when wanted.  From all appearance, it will pay the  mill here to get busy right away and  keep busy right along for months to  come.  Mr. E. F. Voigt came down on Friday last from Voigt's Camp in company with Messrs Jas. Lindsay and J.  V. Burke of Portland who were mak-.  ing an examination of properties on  Copper Mountain. Ir looked for a  while as if Mr. Voigt's return would be  indefinite as one of his horses took sick,  but Harry Robinson's skill as an  equine nurse proved effective, and Mr.  Voigt got under way for home again  next day.  A meeting of the directors of the  Midway and Vernon railway, at which  representatives of the English capital  Avhich is undertaking to finance the  road was to be held in Victoria on  Oct. 10th. The prospective buyers of  the charter were to have completed  their work and put in their reports before that tune- so that something definite its to certainty of construction and  probable time of completion of the  l'oad was confidently looked for at this  meeting.

Continued from Pago One.  by prospectors is of a superficial character. Quartz,veins intersecting granites of tho biotite class occur more or  less in contact with quartz porphyry  dikes. These have been louiid containing good values in copper, chiefly  in the form of chalcopyrites.  White and gray shales'a re frequently .seen'on the bed of the Similkameen.  Sometimes a dark shale is found to  which is attached coal, evidently of  ���������'Cretaceous date, as it differs very  much from the typical lignite coal in  the neighborhood of Princeton, samples of which coal attached to a gray  shale arc also found in the same  stream bed.  It is. inferred that the Cretaceous  shales with their remnants, of coal  have been ice transported from the  ���������Pasayton- area known to be oft the  Dakota, or lower part'of the Cretaceous,  but as this subject is at present under  , special investigation it will not be referred to anj' further until later.  Occasionally  the glacial block is to  be   seen   in   the  bed  of the  streams.  Sand   bars, the sand being a mixture  of quartz and granite, in which colors  .. are still found, but the. reports of the  gold commissioner for late years are  to the effect that placer mining  has  been on the decline for a  number of  years.    Very little work was done last  year.     A few  Chinamen   worked on  Granite creek and. on  the Tulaineen  near  the  mouth of Bear   creek.    As  there is no  stimulus  and  as .modern  methods are not very well understood,  the   conviction   has settled down   to  1 stay that placer mining on the Similkameen and its branches-is among the  things   that   were.      Some,   day    the  platinum  industry  will be revived in  the names of Enterprise and Progress  and important quantities of this metal  may he produced on the beds of the  Tnlameon and its mountain tributaries.  The', occurrences of  platinum on   the  Tulaineen    and   Granite   creek    was  _:espe_ci;.iily...referred   to  in ..one...of,'.the  .July-numbers of the Mining World of  the present year.  The red shales found in the bed of  the Similkameen have been more or  less vulcanized and evidently come  from the Tertiary volcanic, area in the  neighborhood, of Print eton.  It is on official record that' of 19  species of hemipterons insects found  in tho Tertiaries of British Columbia,  1G come from the Similkameen and  not far from Princeton.

KEREMEOS NOTES.  All tlie early patients of the fever  have been making satisfactory recovery, the greater number of them being  out and walking around, gaining  strength day by day. There; have  been only two or three who have, contracted it in the past three weeks and  they are all getting along well.  Business for the hotels has been  looking up within the past month, in  consequence of the large gang of men  at work on the steam shovel.  Pete Bromley, while"a.ble to be about  for the last ten days, had scarcely  enough strength to permit him taking  hold of the work in the blacksmith  ���������shop, and George Sproule. remained  on for another week. Mr. Bromley  finds that he has moie room in his  clothtjs than he has any use for at  present.  ..Tack Way's collection of snakes at  the Hotel Keremeos is still hearty and  the various members thereof thriving  on a diet of field mice. There are in  the collection three rattlers and two  garter snakes, and, in spite of these  conditions which might give rise to a  color question, they dwell in perfect  amity, walking over each other at  will. Now Jack is very much of a  Socialist in his ideas and these circumstances should afford food for thought.  Even Socialists have not yet arrived  at that degree of self-abnegation which  will permit one member of the cult to  toddle his cow-hides over another with  impunity, either in jest or earnest,  and as for color the aversion to Mongolian ochre which they evince is far  short of the harmony dwelling in that  snake cage. Perhaps it is the diet of  field mice.  Fever has broken out in No. 1 Camp  working on the steam shovel at Keremeos. Two cases were sent last week  to the railway hospital at Oroville,  and some others who are indisposed  are being watched for the development  of typhoid symptoms. Up to the present No. 1 Camp has had a model bill  of health.  F. -Richter & Co. are building an addition to their store to accommodate  the large stock which they Avill he  compelled to carry during the bustle  of construction which is now on.  T. Coleman's, son who left about a  month aco to attend school in Victoria,  and was taken down sick with fever  after reaching there, is improving.  His father made a trip to the coast to  see him.  Mi-. Jelly is ill, and the operation of  tomato canning has received a temporary check in consequence.  W. H. Armstrong, president of the  Keremeos Land Co., was in town last  week, and it is said that an extensive  irrigation scheme supplementary to  what has already been done is to be  undertaken at once.

While Lord Aberdeen was Governor-General of Canada the people of  the Okanagan took his visits as mere  matter of course, a sort of neighborly  call. The calling habit, once acquired,  sticks, and now Earl Grey has come  in off the main line to call on Aberdeen's Okanagan neighbors. Vernon  laid itself out to give him a. royal welcome and succeeded in doing so, and  the Lower Okanagan was honored in  having Penticton included in the viceregal itinerary, and from reports,  Penticton did the honors of host in  commendable shape. An address was  presented by W. T. Shatford in behalf of the citizens.  Earl Grey, with the Countess and  suite spent the night on board the  steamer at Penticton, returning up  the lake in the morning.  WHY  EAT  MUTTON  WHEN YOU  CAN GET  SPRING  LAMB?
