C.  SIMILKAMEEN IS  FRUIT PARADISE.  Mr. William Murray Astonished at Fertility of Keremeos and District  Province  "I have just returned from my  first trip through the Similkaineen  and Okanagan Valleys, and I am  more than pleased with the general  appearance and outlook of the district", said Mr. William Murray, manager of tlie Vancouver branch of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce. ';T was  astonished at the wonderful climate;,  the fertility of the soil, and the general beauty of the cormtrv. But perhaps the most amazing thing of all is  the fact, that we import such large  quantities of fi-nifc and .vegetables  from the American side when we  have such great opportunities of growing them ourseves in this province."  At Kelowna Mr. Murray found,a.  large area under tobocco, which is  made up in a local factory into cigars.  Brrt of all the places that he saw it  was Keremeos that caught his fancy  urost. There, he says, the climate is  particularly favorable owing to the reflected heat from the surrounding  mountains. Keremeos has an abundant supply of water, conveyed to the  district by a. recently constructed  canal, and water is the only thing  needed to make the soil one of the  most productive in the'world.  "Keremeos is a most desirable location  not only for its fertility and its  climate,  but  because as  soon   as the  railway is completed, it will be within  nine hours'bf Vancouver, which will  enable the grower to pick his fruit in  theafternoon for sale in this city next  morning," said Mr. Murray.  -According ' to   Mi-. !Murray ^fruits  giow there in great profusion, apples,  pears, peaches prunes'and grapes, and  an endless variety of vegetables.    One  property of four acres that he   saw,  had been  broken this spring,  and the  fortunate owner, using no. other labor  than  his own,  had grown  a crop of  cucumbers   estimated   at  fifty   tons,  which at the present prices represent  a profit that can easily  be calculated.  Asked as to  the  influx of settlers,  Mr. Murray said that they were coming in in  very fair numbers,  mostly  from the old country, and the East.  "It is not surprising, that it is a  popular district. The climate is moderate all the year round, and there is  no heavy smows. In my mind it is a  more desirable place of residence than  Southern .California," concluded Mr.  Murray.  GOLF TOURNAMENT  Sixteen members of the Hedley Golf  club entered for the mixed foursomes  tonraamentlast week and rrp to the  present nearly all the first round has  been played' oft'. The match consists  of 14 holes or two rounds of the links,,  the option; being given to suit the con-  venience of players of playing the full  two rounds at once or doing one round  at one time and finishing up the second round at a later period, to suit the  convenience of the rneiirbers, although  the playing of both rounds at once  was preferable as a better test of the.  play and.endurance: of-the players.1  The first bout was between-L.C. Rolls  and Mrs. Rotherhjim; against E. H.  Williams and Myrtle''< McLean when  only, ,7, holes were played - on the first  meeting and found Williams and his  partner ;four hpies iip which iv'as a  heavylead..to be overcome.  The next bout was played between  COMMISSIONER    RECOMMENDS  Valuable Advice to  B. C.   Fauit Growlers on Marketing- Crop  TRAIN WRECK ON G. N, R.  Freight Goes Through Eridge and Seven  Cars of Merchandise Destroyed.  Word-has come to hand that a Gicat  Northern freight train went through  a bridge, between Marcus and Laurier  on Monday and seven cars of merchandise were piled up in a wreck. If the  train was northbound, as it is to be  presumed it was, there is every probability that merchants in the Similkameen will be disappointed through  the non-arrival of goods they wore expecting and what will prove more  serious still, there is a great probability that some of the mackinery for the  Hedley Gold Mining Co. may be in the  wreck.  No particular's are   to  hand  whether any  of the  train   rrrerr  injured.  R. James and Miss Bond against F. H.

As soon asthe second round of the  Rolls and Williams match is decided  the survivors of the first round will  draw for the semi-finals which will in  all probability be 'finished up by the  end of'the week and then a play-off  will take place between the victors  from the semi-finals.  A surprising feature was seen in the  fact that of the four picked winners  for the first round every one of the  four went down. This, illustrates the  fact that in even so scientific si. game  as golf where'individual play counts  for'so'much there is a glorious Uncertainty which can never- be fully reckoned with.  While in some cases the, handicap  played a more or less important' part  in contributing to the result; in other  cases it figured but very little, and the  majority of the holes taken by the  handicappers were won without the  aid of the handicap.

C,  was largely responsible for gettirrg for  that city the G. P. R.'s  two  million  dollar Empress Hotel.    The 0. P. R.  with  shrewd business instinct recognize the asset there is for them in it..  Here is a pointer for Hedley   and for  the Great Northern  railway  if they  will only avail themselves of it.   There  are  unique features prized by golfers  'natural to the Hedley links that have  been most warmly admired and appreciated   by   experienced   golfers   who  have been on them, and if the railway  were  once  through  to the  coast anil  the Hedley  links were  advertised  as  they should be  it would be the means  of attracting  to the  town a most desirable  class   of   tourist   trade,     The  main   tiring is  to see that tlie present  status  is  rrot disturbed by   allowing  private interests to secure arry advantage which would enable them to hold  up or-  irr any way levy  tribute  upon  Although  some  quotations  at   the  present time for Fall  varieties from  American pointsi would apparently indicate low prices,   the general concensus of opinion on the  part of jobbers  generally is that prices  for Fall and  Winter, varieties of apples will not go  low)  quotations   from  the   East  for  Ontario  Apples for No.   1 in   barrels  (which arc  very   scarce)   are quoted  $3.50 to $3.75 with a probable raise to  $4.00 in  a very short time, and when  jobbers    ask ^ for    quotations    fi-om  American points prices are much higher than when Avired unsolieited.

It will  be will for our Growers and Shippers  to  bear this in mind and  raise  the  standard of their pack,  rather than  lower, as we are certainty establishing  an enviable reputation on B. C. fruit  at the present time all over these Provinces, aud this reputation, if sustained and advanced on our fruit products  will certainly create   an increased demand for   them and  command   the  highest  market prices.   At the same  time our shippers must not forget the  competition  they have to meet from  the American Pacific Coast States and  the efforts being put' forth by them  to  reduce the cost of production in  every way and their earnest endeavors  to grow and raise the standard of their  fruit products by the latest and most  up-to-date methods.

Smith Writes of Conditions  in That Land  Dear Editor:  i You have asked nre some very hard  questions brrt answer we must, he-  cause our- motto is "to give- an answer  to therrr that asketh of thee", but how  to answer is the question.  You ask if there is much disatisfac-  tion with British rub-. If we were to  answer- that there is much dissatisfaction because of the want of British  rule, You. might not understand but  we have stated the truth. Let rrs make  a comment and yoir will understand,  because it brings the problem-before-'  you. You know that the attempt  being nrade to give India as much  self-government as possible and we  have nothing but praise for such ; n  endeavor, but we hear on ������������������every hard  that "the days:of even handed Britu-h  justice had gorre. We are now irr the  hands of our own men who seek graft  and self interest."  Tt must be said that the British politicals irr India have been as a rule men  in every way worthy of our empire  and 'men who gave to India to the utmost extent of their knowledge and  judgment, e v e n-handed j u s t i c e,  without respect to 'creed, caste, class  or color. A story is told of a one time  resident in Central India, that when  he came to a very difficult case about  which he had doubt and for Avhich  proof was scant but had to be settled,  "he counted the flies on his tent pole  audit the number was odd he gave  the decision to 'A'.and if even gave it  to 'B' and then trusted Providence  that it would be right."  Now-a-days under the direction of  the British officials and numberless  Indian officials and for the actions  and justice of these Indian officials  British rule has to answer. When we  were boys our fathers used to say to  us, "It cost more to. train you boys  tharr you are worth" or perhaps "It  would be easier for nie to do this work  myself than to show you fellows how  to do it." Britain might also justly,  say that it costs more to train India  than it is worth, or that .it.would be  easier to do the.whole work of govern  ing than to teach India to govern herself but the boy "India" must be train  ed. Britain is not a land grabber but  a nation builder.  You asked if the trouble of fifty  years ago is likely to repeat itself. It  may be necessary for the . peace of  India to hold her with a firm hand but  if any trouble does come, it will come  in a more subtle way than it came fifty  years ago. India krrows orrly too well  that Britain is not anxious lest she  should take too much share in the. government of the land but because she  takes too little: interest.  Undoubtedly if Teddy Roosvelt had  come to India he would have cut  things up pretty badly brrt none of  these things move us. The Briton  especially away from home is an exceedingly canny man. To the people  around hirrr over whom he rules he is  father, leader and  defender all in one.  METEOROLOGICAL.  Minimum  29  28  23  discovered the possibilities of Pinto  flat as most ideal golf links. The* local  club are attending to the matter of  improvement of the greens and fairway without asking outside assistance,  believing as they do that every sport  should stand on its own bottom and  its devotees pay the piper-./ All they  ask therefore is to he left alone.  "Golfing", an English publication,  says that the longest hole on any links  in Great Britain is that of the seventh  hole on the Erskine links which is  5S5 yards. This is rather a coincidence for Medley's longest hole "Prrnr-  rose way" is our seventh hole and is  exactly 585 yards.  time. The illustrations of some of  their- holes are Urine common-place  affairs compared with some, of the  sportiest hides on the Hedley links.  There have been several matches of  sirrgles orr the ladder series during the  past ten days but the events are coming so thick and fast it is difficult to  keei) track of all.  After thi ��������� tnurnanrcnt is finished up  it is suggested that another tournament of singles for the men and singles  for the ladies be played with a, view to  revision to some extent of the handicap and also a series of men's foursomes be played.

Dealing as  it does  with questions of public policy affecting the status of India as   well as of  the empire as a whole the letter is irrost  timely at the present juncture in view  or' the feeling  of unrest said  to exist  in   IJi-it.ain'.-   Indian   possessions.    The  writer who is well and most- favorably  known to many of .our leaders who  bad the pleasure of meeting him when  he resided in Hedley four years ago is  a close observer of conditions and apt  at all times to be just and fair in his  conclusions.    A thorough Briton himself of  the   broader  type as distinguished   from    the    "little-Englander"  and having the benefit  besides of being  brought rrp   in  a self-governing  country like Canada, although born in  Scotland,'he is eminently qualified to  examine conditions at first hand and  pass judgment justly arrd  wisely. .  Thus far it is most pleasing to note  irr his letter that he has no indictment  against British rule per se but finds  India's present ills to be largely of her  owrr making or imagining. Those  who have read Mrs. Coates' admirable  story "His Honour and a Lady' in  which Indian questions of public policy are dealt with (and, by the way,  the writer thereof is also a Canadian  and judges India from the Canadian  standpoint) will note the similarity of  the view-point and its recognition of  the bald fact so admirably .summarised in Kipling's Naulakha which says  TAKE NOTICE, .that I, .I.E.

Born���������In  Hedley,  September 28th,  to Mr. and Mrs. J. Smith, a daughter.  Rev.   Mr-. Kinney, will .coirdnct service here on Sunday evening next.  It is reported that constable Sproule  and Mrs. Sproule are expected back irr  '. u few'.days from their trip to Nova  Scotia where they... went.a little over  two -months ago oh a visit tn. Mr.  Sproule's relatives. :    .        / .  Thos. H. Ambrose, United States inspector of immigration was'in town  ���������" last week, and being conversant with  the Italian language he was of great  service to constable Ewart in getting  at the root of the trouble among the'  scrapping Italians. -   *  The visit to Hedley of Mr. Brooks of  the Redeemable Trust Co. which is  taking over the Kingston has been delayed bv a dangerous illness which  detained him at his home in Boston.  He will be orrt here as soon as he recovers sufficient strength to .enable  him to make the trip.  . The secretary of the-Grand Forks'  fair has our thanks for a ticket to s.ee  the show which is in progress there  this week. The fair was* opened by  , Martin Burrell M. P.. and.in addition  to the exhibits of fruit and live stock  ���������i programme of sports had been provided.  Grand Forks captured the leading  trophy at the Nelson fair last week.  Among individual exhibitors Martin  Burrell captured a number of important prizes for grains and fruits, thus  showing that his political duties have  not made him lose interest-in agricultural pursuits or tended to make him  ���������any the less successful operator in  'that line. .���������..'  ��������� Rev. C. B. Kerr who is to succeed  Rev. Mr. Conn at Princeton will not  reach his new field for a fortnight or  more and the Superintendent of missions has requested Rev. A. H. Cameron to give a service or two for  Princeton or as much time as he can  spare from the. Hedley and Keremeos  fields. He expects to hold service in  Princeton next Sunday.  '.���������.-:��������� A Good Position.���������Can be had by  iimbitious young men and ladies in the  field of ���������'Wireless" or. Railway telegraphy. Since the S hour law became  effective, and since the wireless companies are establishing stations  throughout the country, there , is a  great shortage of telegraphers. Positions pay beginners from $70 to $90  per month, with good chance of advancement. The National Telegraph  Institutes operates six official institutes in America, under supervision of  R. R. and Wireless Officials and places  all graduates into positions. It will  pay you to write to them for frrll details at Davenport, Iowa; Cincinnati,  Ohio; Portland, Ore; or Memphis,  Tenrr.  All has not been peace and harmony  among the Italian colony employed  on the Great'Northern surfacing and  repair gangs in this vrcinity. Last  week Francesco Eranceschius was  brought back from Oroville to answer  to a charge of wrecking the house in  which they had all been batching, and  Rev. A. H. Cameron brought his  new telephoto camera, with him on his  last trip and climbed some of the adjoining mountain's to get good views  with it. He also on Saturday afternoon-last with his -regular camera took  ...-.' i���������  a picture of the golf green on "Primrose Way" arrd a photo of about a  score of members of the club. The  club should appoint Mr.' Cameron its  official photographer and have Irinr  take views of the more interesting  features of tire Hedley links which is  probably one of the.-finest, .natural  courses rrr the. Dominion.  Now that the long nights of the fall  ,-ihd , winter, seasons are almost here  some effort should be made to have  the .matter of street lighting attended  to.  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  D.ELY.  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada;  Money invested in Hedley Town Property now will bring you Big  Returns in a Few Months  of destroying the belongings of another Italian named Ruyge'r, tearing  clothing aird emptying but flour and  other contents of the larder. It transpired after some investigation that a  short time before they had been quarrelling and Ruyger drew a gun on  Francesco who was goirrg to have him  arrested but agreed to accept hush  money instead. The non-payment of  the proper' amount of hush money  was the cause of the* wrecking to get  even. Francesco contributed a. ten  dollar fine, arrd the costs of bringing  him back and also re imbursed the  other fellow for damage caused and  was allowed to get out of the country.  The rrew generator will soon be  along.which will enable the company  to srrpply current without stint. A  cluster of four or six 32 candle-power  lights under a reflector shield and  placed.-.at three or four points in the  town should not be. a very heavy burden for the residents to tackle and a  great deal of comfort and satisfaction  would result therefrom.-  In extending the pipe line rrp the  creek last week the water had to be  shut off in-town occasionally and the  air which got in the pipes gave the  water a strikingly milky appearance.  This appearance, however; soon passed off after the water was allowed to  settle for a few minutes. It was due  wholly to aeration and that is a healthy condition for water at any time.  Doctors even-say that other kinds of  booze as well as water would lose  much of their injurious effects if they  were taken slowly with plenty of air'  between the sips and some opportunity given for proper insalivation of  the liquid.  Mr. C. D. Fraser was sufficiently re  covered from his illness to move about  during the latter part 6f last week and  on.Monday, he left for Spokane en-  route to New York in company with  Mr. Walter Beam who crime in to see  him. Mr. Fraser's illness pulled him  down considerably and prevented him  from getting about and making the  examination of the property which he  had hoped to do. He had an attack  of. pneumonia several years ago but  did not think himself subject tothe  malady and furthermore he could not  understand how he came to Ire taken  down Avith it on this occasion as he  had been careful nrost of the season to  get as much outdoor exercise as possible outside of business hours. He  was anxious to see the mine but Dr.  McEwen did not like the idea of running the risk of subjecting the lungs  to so severe a test so soon after the illness he had had. In all probability  when he comes . again he will be pro J  vided with a private car and thus escape much of the discomfort now attached to the making of the trip.  A welcome visitor to Hedley this  week, was Walter Beam, of Denver,  prominently associated with the new  corporation owning and operating the  Nickel Plate group in this camp. In  fact Mr. Beam may be said in a way  to have been a discoverer of the Nickel  Plate of to-day as contrasted with the  Nickel Plate of the late, regime. Prospectors sometimes discover a prospect  that may make a mine but it is not  often the lot of mining men to discover a mine already made. Never-  the less it fell to the lot of Mr. Beam  and his associates assisted by trusty  guides like M. R. Rodgers and general  superintendent Jones to perform that  feat in the case of the. Nickel Plate.  Mi-. Beam happened to be over in  Nelson and being informed of the illness of Mr. C. D. Fraser he came over  here on Saturday last to see hinr.  During his brief stay in Hedley he  made a trip up to the Nickel Plate and  was delighted at the result of development operations carried on here since  he left about a year ago.

The higher hills had a light covering  of snow on Sunday and Monday, suggestive of the season ahead. So far,  however there has been rib"."'sign of  frost in the valley about Keremeos  and Tomatoes and melons are still  ripening on the vines; but last year it  was weeks later than this before frost.  Mrs. G. G. Keeler returned home on  Saturday from her visit to friends in  the Yakima Valley, Wash. Her son  Carl, who'accompanied her is remaining for a few weeks longer visit. Mrs  Keeler says that the Yakima is a  beautiful valley, in places over65 miles  wide and produces a wealth of fruit,  but that for dust it has Keremeos  backed clear off the map.  Keremeos friends of J. H. Kennedy,  Assistant Chief Engineer of the G. N.  will regret to learn that he is seriously-  ill with acute rheumatism, contracted  "tiring his trip to Princeton last week.  He was taken south on Saturday's  train to Oroville, where Superintendent Morgan's private car met him.  He was accompanied by his sou Ed  and will go to some hot springs in the  south for treatment. We trust that  his recovery may be speedy.  It is understood that Mr. Graham  the C. P. R. official who was in here  a short time ago, with W. H, Armstrong has purchased Mr. Spencer's  fruit lot.

He savs that down at the coast  they have had the driest season on  record and that when he left they  were wishing it would rain.  WLKim CUTTLEFISH.  Strange  Along  Farming   Carried   on  the British Coast.  It is not known generally that cuttlefish are cultivated on some farms  in order to be "milked." ; These  cuttlefish farms are located on parts  of the British coast, and, the cuttlefish are kept in tanks or ponds lo be  milked of their ink.  The pond or tank is connected--with  the sea by a' pipe, and a thousand  or more cuttlefish are kept in a single one. They form a most curious  sight as they move about trailing  their long arms and staring out of  their  bulging' eyes.  They are guarded by screens, which  prevent, them from being scared, for  if thev are suddenly frightened the  "cuttlefish" will squirt their milk into  the water, and it would therefore be  lost. This fluid, or milk, is very  valuable,- ������������������ and each cuttlefish will  yield about $4 worth a year. It is  secreted in a bag, which can be opened and closed at will, the cuttlefish  ejecting the fluid to darken the water  so that it may escape unseen when  attacked. The best cuttlefish are procured in China, where for some reason or other they produce the best  quality of milk.  When the farmer, considers it opportune to milk the cuttlefish he proceeds by opening the sluices of the  pond and gently agitating tlie water.  The cuttles then : swim around the  pond, and as soon as one passes  through the sluice is closed. The cuttle passes down a small channel into  a basin or me^al receptacle, -and ...as  soon as it is securely there the'wafer  is drained"off.'..,'It is."then frightened  and at once souirts the fluid from  the basr. When it is exliai's'cd it  is lifted out,'-the milk is collected,  and the basin is prepared for another.  J. A.

One of the biggest real estate deals  that has been pulled off here lately  took piace last week when Victor  Quaedylieg, of Vancouver, purchased  tire Old Webster homestead from the  liogers Realty Co., of Winnipeg, the  deal being rregotiated by F. Schneider.  Mr. Q.uaedvlieg is a man of means and  will assist in the development of the  district. The purchase covers the  buildings arrd orchard arrd 80 acres of  the Webster ranch. Mr. Robertson,  who has been tenant during the. past  two years will shortly move on to the  adjoining 20 acre fruit lot which lie recently purchased from Mr. Breadner-.
