W1IKN WHITING ADVElt-TISKKS j'LKASK  .MENTION   THIS I'A'-HIt  Penticton did herself proud in tlie  welcome extended on Friday last to  H. R. H. the Duke of Connanght. the  Duchess and their daughter Princess  Patricia, and the Royal party certainly strengthened the feeling in favor of  .monarchical institutions within the  empire in the minds of those who  turned   out to join'  in the welcome-  It was the privilege of the editor* of  the Gazette to journey over and he  present on the. occasion and now that  it is all over and we are hack again to  the daily grind we feel well repaid in  the pleasant memory' left hy the  event.  It is  estimated  that  hetween   2000  and 3000 were  present and  all points  between   Ponticton and the boundary  line were represented, while from Oio-  ville  there  were   said   to  have   been  several ������������������an to   loads.    The   town   was  gaily decked   with hunting  and evergreens and a stranger in the town that  morning could find   evidence   on all  hands of a  geneial inclination  to tidy  up.   The corporation had liien on cutting the  weeds  on some vacant lots,  and in other parts  thrifty housewives  were even   handling the garden rake..  A reception committee appointed at  a public meeting had been doing good  work;  the municipal   council  too had  important duties to discharge and so  ,f:������.it *i������.,:,(.���������(>uld-h^. syeji::t.ht!y."wej."e. equal,  tothe  part required of them.    Altogether the .welcome was well -planned  and  details were so well foreseen and  provided  for* that it was . very evident  the   town had   been fortunate  in  possessing a guiding spirit that knew the  proper thing to do and had the energy  to   do it.    The  choice of marshal   or  master of ceremonies was partieularly  apt  and so  far as  a. .visitor, could'see  the lion's share of the credit was due  to   Police Magistrate  Guernsey   who  discharged   that  important function.  His    military    instinct   and  training  stood  him in good service, and after-  all    when    you    want   precision   and  smoothness there is nothing so wholesome and   eil'ective as a little spice of  the  military  in the ordering of ceremonial even among civilians. Marshal  Guernsey's muster of veterans and ex-  soldiers was   arr unqualified success as  about forty   responded to   his  invitation, and the Boy Scouts and the Girl  Guides lent  a   tone of finish  to   the  military  end  of the affair  while the  line turnout of school kiddies aird the  vim with which they sang "The Maple  Leaf Forever" was a  delightful finishing   touch.     To  one   who  has  had a  taste of harrackroonr life  and can appreciate  barrack room   punctuality it  was most refreshing lo see how orderly and punctually  the muster of these  four  units   was  effected and the   line  drawn up orr the wharf, the whole not  occupying  inure than about five minutes, and at  the end of about another  minute   or    two after  the composite  line was  formed to  receive his Highness, the steamer which bore him was  moored at  the dock.     The  veterans  were on the right of the line with the  Boy Scouts next, the Girl Guides next.  and the school children on the left.  The landing was made opposite the  veterans and the gangway of the  steamer interfered a bit with the  centre of their" line but not sufficient  to make confusion. On the landing of  the steamer the band played "God  Save the King" alter" which his Highness was received with a royal salute,  the veterans saluting and the Boy  Scouts presenting arms. The muni-j  cipal address of welcome was read by  the town clerk after- which his Highness replied and next proceeded to inspect the veterans going along the  line of both ranks and speaking to  each man in succession. Irr this connection a pleasing incident was noticed when  on the special  invitation of  ' '   7 ���������     '���������'"���������,' '' -���������   ���������'*:   :��������� --��������� ������������������7 ' '   ������������������������������������ '  who had  seen service in -.South Africa  as nurse, had taken lip her* position on  the  left of  the 'lints of veterans and  thus came   in  for a word  from  His  '������"'  Highness    with   thii'   rest,   while  the  Duchess  engaged her* in   conversation  for some  time.    On' taking leave   of  the  veteians   his Highness   thanked  Mr. Guernsey for thve pleasure afforded him of meeting "with the men and  his leave taking of the other* units was  equally kindly, while; the Duchess and  Princess Patricia ni.ado warm friends  of all.  After the reception' and review autos  were on hand to take the Drrke and  his suite for a drive clown to Lake  Skaha and up over the benches, after  which they returned- to the steamer  Okanagan orr which tliev remained all  night.  A dance was given- by the Aquatic  Club to which the Governor General's  suite was invited aird many of them  attended. ,7, .  .Pessibly the  feature of the whole  occasion   which   most  impressed   the  writer was the simplicity and absence  of all  formality  on j the  part  of  the  royal party and every member of their  suite, for there was   hot even' the semblance of fuss  and feather  to he seen  any where.     In "dress,   in .manner* ''.'and  in the kindly interest they displayed  in 'everything, the Dukeand his family  were at one  with the people who had  turned out to welcome them.    Tf  '���������Politeness is to do and say  The kindest thing in tho.kindest, way"  the "Duke early learned the lesson and  practiced it all his life until it has become a   part of himself.    Not only so  hut  it has  led  him   to seek out the  same  trait in'others  with   the result  that in  the members-of his suiter's to  be seen the same kindly consideration  for others^    Especially was  this seen  iir the case  of his secretary Col. Low-  ther who had practically all to do with  making arrungeinents for his visit to  :thi-t'-������iii*rous-plae^.-"A*:^ib\lgh:fr'6iii:.thif  Grenadier Guards, a corps that is supposed to be strong orr ceremonial and  credited moreover   with  turning out  martinets with some of whom Canada  has hat!  some experience  in the past,,  Col. Lowther has proven the very opposite on this tour and marry will have  occasion to remember his kind consideration.    A little incident may be related which though trivialin itself conveyed a  great deal   to the writer who  witnessed  it,  and   we are sure Capt.  Esterbrook   will not  mind us relating  it by  way of illustration  as  it is not  rrrearrt to  reflect  on him  in any way  and does not. In the- dusk of the evening after the party had returned from  their  trip over  the   benches and the  Duke  had gone  to his  quarters  Col.  Lowther was  standing  on the wharf  talking to  Hon.  Martin  Burrell and  the writer  when Captain Esterbrook,  of the Steamer Okanagan. approached  and asked hinr  whether it  would not  be proper for  him  to take down the  royal standard.    Col. Lowther replied  quickly  but  kindly "Oh no, that flies  day and night"  and then after a short  pause added "I think; but wait a little  bit arrd   I  will   firrd  out and  let you  know." Now the Colonel, it was plain,  was never in any doubt  about it. arrd  REO REACHES   HEDLEY  Wilby Looking Hale and Hearty is Now  Speeding for Vancouver  J ust as we are going to pre.-.*, superintendent Turner with Mr. Wilby on  board sppeded into town in Turner's  Case car. They were pacing the Reo  in which Mr. Wilby has made the long  trip from Halifax. The Reo was on  the road and was accompanied by  .lohn R. Jackson's car from Greenwood. A little later the Jackson car  with J. R. Jackson, M. P. P., T. D.  Pickard aird Chief Constable Dinsrnorc  on board drove in with the word that  the Reo had sustained a puncture and  they were changing the tire.  Mr. Wilby is now in a position to  know something about the roads in  Canada and he P'lys British Columbia's  roads are by all odds the best in the  Dominion. In sorrre places he had to  ship the car- where there were no roads  at all and irr other places they took  the railroad .for it and bumped along  on the ties, tearing their tires all to  pieces. As the Nelson News put it Mr.  AVilby told them there that they were  "Like birds in a golden cage" for there  is no communication with Nelson except by train or- boat. Mr. Wilby's  diary of the trip should make a most  interesting volume.  ACCOMPANIES THE DUKE  Hon.   Martin Burrell  Accompanies   the  Duke of Cdnnaiight and Suite Through  his Constituency. <     ,  A FINE HIGHWAY  From all the reports that have come  to hand ;rs to the great improvement  of the roads in the Similkameen.' district die Gazette was piep.-ired to see  something 'nice during the auto ride  .from Kererneos to Penticton but this  was a case in which anticipation fell  far short of the real thing. It Was a  Thursday evening the trip was made,  and the car that was.on the route that  evening was Wei by's HO horse power  Case. The car which had been out.of  commission.' a ,fe\y .days .before .owing  to broken piston rings in the cylinder  had recently been fitted to new ones,  and was working stiff for the fii,st part  of the distance.  Owing to road repairs that were being made, between the station arrd the'  Centre on the route past the school  lunise the driver took the west route  and from the top of the hill in to the  Central Hotel a piece of road recently  widened 'and finished off by Bob Me-  Curdy's gang is a fair sample of the  quality of roads that aie-now.insisted  orr by the Public Works Department.  The road irp Kerenreos Creek built by  Danny McEachern's gang shows long  stretches of beautiful roadway fit in  many places for a public park and  establishing Danny's reputation us a  high class "road builder.  Many of the hills have been cut out  and new stretches of roadway on easy  grades and curvatures arrd beautifully  rounded off from ditch to crown have  replaced therri. The only places that  remain to remind one of the old order  of things are the long steep hills just  before coming to Fish Lake and the  Green Mountain hill. Fine work again  has been done by L. A.. Clark's gang  along by   the   Indian   reserves before  Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of  'Agriculture, and 31 rs. Burrell are accompanying the Drrke and Duchess of  Connanght on their tour through the  interior of the province, or at least as  far as Nelson which they were to  reach on Monday last.  Mr. Ihurell joined the ducal party '  at Victoria .and it- was .."eminently iit-  ting that as cabinet minister for the  province he should accompany the  Governor General through a portion  of it at least, and it was .especially  fitting that the itinerary through his  owrr constituency should be of that  portion. It was a circunistance which  pleased his constituents when they  rrret him there.  Hon. Mr. Burrell will spend a few  days at his old home in Grand Forks,  after which he will have to 'hurry.,'  hack to Ottawa to get his department  ready for the opening of the session',  next'rrronth. He has'had a busy time  since he took-charge of the department of Agriculture and he expects  a busy time in the session-now coming  on. While he has no information to  give out concerning the- naval programme for the coming session he expressed confidence that the announcement which the Premier Would make  on that question when the House assembles would not disappoint- his  friends.  there was nothing at all singular iir a  Canadian captain in the merchant  marine rrot being posted on that parti-!  cular point of ceremonial. Clearly it  was kindness which prompted Col.  Lowther to feign indecision; but at all  events the standard was not taken  down audit was there flying at the  masthead at dawn the next morning  MINING  NOTES  the marshal,Miss Hancock a local lady  The August net profits of the British  Columbia Copper company were $3(>,-  000 or Jjil.0,000 less than in July owing  to the lower grade of ore treated during the month. The costs are said to  be 0 cents a pound. The company has  increased the wages of the miners  2o cents a day on a sliding scale basis.  When copper reaches IN cents another  similar advance will be granted.  The lo stamp mill of the Jewel mine  over in the Boundary is now irr full  operation and the Phoenix Pioneer  says the first clean-up is soon to be  made and a most satisfactory one was  anticipated, if not assured. Concentrates having a value of $125 have  been shipped. The vein is from 2 to 4  feet in thickness.  the road strikes dowrr   Beaver Creek.  On   this  portion a grader* arrd   roller  were used and appear to   have accom  plished very good work.  If superintendent turner is getting  as good work from ,-oad foremen in  other parts of the riding ,,s that now  to be found between Kerenreos and  Penticton he and Mr. Shatford should  be happy men and we can readily  understaud why the engineer from  the Public Works department who  was through here a short tirrre ago expressed his satisfaction with the way  appropriations in the Similkameen J  riding were being laid out. Effort  should be made to have the Premier  and Minister of Public Works pay a  visit tothe riding and see for- themselves for seing is believing and we  are sure they would have reason to  continue the good work in this riding  for there is some encouragement to  vote money for public improvements  when there is evidence that proper  value is obtained for it.  On the return trip made in the crisp  morning when the roads were in this  ideal condition and the engine running truly it only took an hour and  forty minutes to make the run from  the Hotel Ineola in Penticton to the  Central Hotel in Keremeos.  EXORBITANT RATES  Keremeos fruitgrowers are far from  being satisfied  with   the service and  the  rates  they are getting from  the  Great  Northern   railway but particularly arc the rates coining in for strong  disapproval.   The feature about which  most    dissatisfaction    exists    is    that  QUa i*ai*a.n fruitgrowers- are,umt-h..better served   by  the C. P. 11.   The rate  charged  from Keremeos by the Great  Northern  is 40c per  hundred on potatoes aird  Goc on apples   while the  rate  from   Penticton  to   the.coast   by the  O.P.R. is 23c per hundred on potatoes  and 40c   per hundred   on apples.    This  is a heavy handicap for the fruitgrower iir   the Okanagan   to have   over the  fruitgrower- irr the Similkameen and it-  is tirrre the Great Noi thern   were looking into the matter for it should be tf)  their  interest to  endeavor to  encourage the industries of fruitgrowing and  market gardening instead of trying to  strangle  the life out of each of them  in that maimer.     The  comparison of  the rales   irr the two cases  is certainly  a. surprise  and.it goes   to bear out the  charge  so  frequently' made   that the  Great   Northern officials   are  in   the  habit of studying out the  cost of production   with  a  view to  charging-all  the industry  will  stand  and making  their freight charges accordingly.  GENERAL NEWS  Sir Wilfrid Laurier is continuing his  tour throught Ontario.  The cruiser Niobe is to sale for England shortly. She has been in drydoek  for about a. year and officers and crew  arc. said to be jubilant at the prospect  of getting back to England again.  Both sides are watching with interest the by-election in McDonald, Manitoba. Hon. Robert Rogers has been  in the riding and addressed the electors in the interests of the government  candidate.  The Provincial Government of British Columbia have fully decided to  abolish the poll-tax. A modification  of it was desirable, but its entire  abolition in the case of those who pay  no other tax would seem to bo a piece  of mistaken leniency.  A usurer in Vancouver named  Abraham I). Goldstein (sounds Irish  doesn't it?) charges .$100 interest on a  note for $500 for two mouths.  The immigration figures month by  mouth show a great increase of the  volume of immigration into .Canada  during the present year over that of  any former year. The increase over  lust year is fifteen percent.  Judge Murphy of the Supreme Court  has handed out a written judgement  that the British Columbia Companies  Act is intra vires.

During  the last administration there was complaint enough about mismanagement  of the telephorre.and local arrd district  superintendents were denounced right  and  left,   but   the   niulishiiess of the  district   superintendent increased   in  like   ratio with   the vehemence  of the  complainants and little  or no  betterment- resulted.    Surely the present administration  in their  over-anxiety to  avoid  the charge of using the axe. do  not  want to perpetuate a state of affairs for which their predecessors were  in some  measure  made to  suffer, and  if lire  present failures  are due to the  retention   of those  who acted in the  past  as   if  they  do rrot care a whoop  how   things are   goirrg. then it would  be will for   those at the head who are  justly lo be   held responsible for these  failures    to   reconsider their   policy.  What   the  public   want   is   efficiency  and  reasonable  protection   from mishap  from   neglect.      Irr these   days of  auto travel, overhanging wires threatening  decapitation becomes  a serious  mailer  and wants  to be   looked after  without  airy  nonsence   either  on the  part of  departmental heads or of subordinates.

There is a law in mechanics that you  can gain speed only at the expense of  power and power at the expense of  speed. Equally inexorable is the law  irr finance that as the interest increases the security decreases.

Is it a regulation of the Education  department that the British flag shall  be flown on all school houses irr the  province or is it not!*1 If it is, why is  the flag not in evidence at the Hedley  school ?

A pleasant social event was the "At  - Home" at the hospital, given by Miss  Allen the matron on Friday last.

Constable Sproule left on Saturday  for Kanrloops    where   the   summary  trial of Blair and McGillivrey   is  tf)  take place ut the fall   assizes.     The  uncertainty irs to  time of trial which  has  prevailed dining the  past  three  weeks  has  tended   to  make   the evidence   less   complete  than   it   might  otherwise have been had it been knowri  definitely that there would be no postponement  to the spring assizes.    The  main   witnesses  from   here were Orr*  arrd Waddell  who lost the money, L.  C. Rolls, who saw the hiding aud lind-  ing of a portion of it,  and the  waiter  at the Grand Union  to   whom   oire of  the culprits did some indiscreet talking.     Of course Sproule himself is the  main witness.     It is rumored that the  bar-tender McLennan who was friendly with them and who was behind the  liar at the time the offence is supposed  to have  been committed irr  front of it  was not  to be found  but it is possible  this  may   not   be   correct.      He  was  originally called as witness for the defence and   lu's evidence did not appear  ;'to be of special importance.  A few days ago .1. R.

The manner in which some of  the bones had been shattered by the  bullet that had killed the animal left  no doubt that it was a heavier bullet  than a 22 or any of the smaller bores  of hunting rifle. Whether the thing  had been done accidentally or not is  something which he cannot say but  he is of the. impression that it must  have heen some one who had been  shooting nt crows that are frequently  to be found around the slaughter  house and was too careless or" irresponsible  to   note  where the   bullets  The mulcrsig-nerf hereby gives notice to the public  that no shooting- will be allowed around the slaughter house.
