ON TO HOPE NEXT- SPRING  A Vigorous Campaign in Railway Building Is Planned ��������� Grading Between  Princeton and Sumas To Be Rushed  ���������Train to Coast by End of 1909.  Laid  I  Down   by   Him  at   Halifax  August  20th,   1907.  on  " Southern British Columbia will be  the scene of unusual railway construction activity next spring. Mr. Louis  Hill, president of the Great Northern  railway is desirous of rushing to completion his through line ��������� the V. V.  & E.��������� between Vancouver and the  Boundary district. There yet remains  to be closed the gap between the Similkameen and Sumas, where the V. V.  & E. connects with the Northern  Pacific system, also controlled by the  Hills. It will be a big task to surmount tho Hope mountains, but 1 understand satisfactory grades have been  secured," said Mr. Patrick Welch, of  Spokane, a member eif the firm of  Foley, Welch & Stewart, railway contractors, who are building the coast  section of the Grand TrAmk Pacific.  The same firm also built the V. Y.  & E. from Marcus, Wash., where it  connects with the Great Northern  from Spokane, through the Boundary  district and the Similkameen to Keremeos.-' Mr. Welch is here on railway  business.  "The V. V. & E. has been completed as far as Keremeos, and late this  fall trains will be running twenty-five  miles farther to Hedley. As work  will be continued-all winter we expect  to reach Princeton"' in May.c Then  the task of building over the Hope  mountains into the Fraser river valley  will be undertaken; and rushed to  completion with all possible speed.  I expect to see through trains from  St. Paul running into Vancouver he-  fore,the end of 1909." .���������-..'".  On Thursday morning last a special  train of Great Northern officials arrived in Keremeos at 6 a. in. and left  again at 6:30. There was on board J.  M. Gruber, general manager, St. Paul;  A. H. Homeland, chief engineer, St.  Paul; E. L. Brown, general superintendent, Spokane ; L. C. Gilman, general counsel and new president of the  V.V. & E., Seattle ; branch supt. Morgan; resident engineer O. S. Bowen,  and a number of local superintendents.  They were met by Mr. J. H.; Kennedy,  chief engineer of the V. V. &.E., who  was about the only one arourid at that  early hour of the morning.  I PUBLIC FINANCE.  1. Honest appropriation and expenditure of public moneys in the public  interest.

Barrister Ernest Miller, of Grand Forks,  Addresses Electors in Behalf  of Mr.  Burrell.  Considerable, disappointment was  felt when it was learned on Thursday  last that Martin Biu-rell, Conservative  candidate for Yale-Cariboo, was not  to be preseutat the meeting advertised  for Saturday night, he having received  an urgent invitation tei he erne of the  speakers at a Conservative rally in  Vancouver on that night. The announcement, however, that his place  would'be taken by Ernest Miller, of  Grand Forks, the Conservative, candidate in the last provincial election,  and that Mr. Burrell would address a.  meeting later on, serveel to allay the  disappointment, especially in view of  the fact that this'call from V.-'ticeiu-  ver for an address from Mr. Burrell  was in itself a compliment to the ability of the man who is carrying the  banner of the Conservative party in  Yale-Cariboo.  The meeting was held in the new  public hall of tho Keremeos Land Co.,  and while the attendance was about  the same as that which listened to  Duncan Ross about two weeks before,  marked  Wireless Possibilities Unlimited.

When a  man has made his discovery he has  just begun.   Then he has to  weirk for  years and years before he has the thing  anywhere near completed.   We do not  know what makes these waves that we  call'-'electricity gei across the ocean in  this way.    We don't know anything  about it.

Just  stop and think what we will be able to  do with  them when we find out what  they are and the laws  that  control  them.    I tell you this thing is only beginning, and in a few years there will  be developments along this line that  will startle even  the   most sanguine  dreamer of today.   This thing is in its  infancy yet.   It is easy  to see that.  The possibilities of the thing are limitless and  beyond   all   comprehension.  We tr-day cannot imagine the things  that they will be doing with it a few  years to come.���������Thomas A.

A PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION.  10. The reorganization of the present  Railway commission as a Public Utilities commission with wider pnwct-s  and a more extended jurisdiction,  so  (Kcronieos Trumpet.)  In the suit- of Armstrong vs. the  stake-holders, plaintiff received judgment and costs fen- ail amounts paid  over, by the stake-holders after the  plaintiff had notified them not to pay.  The amounts comprised $200.50 paid  by A. Osborne, $20 by C. L. Cuminings  and $15 by P. Bromley. Murphy, of  Asheroft, appeared for plaintiff, and  Pattern, of Hedley, feir defendants.  ft would appear that the stakeholders have no means of recovering  the money from the parties to whom  it was paid unless the latter voluntarily refund it.  Unsavory, as the case is, it illustrates  the attitude eif the. law in regard tei  such matters and may prove useful in-  feirmation if not a valuable warning tej  those who are disposed to back their  choice in a game of chance eu- who  may find themselves at times asked to  act as stake-holders. A betting debt  is purely a debt eif honor, which cannot  legally be collected, and which, therefore, the unscrupulous may pay or not  at pleasure. Having the money " up"  does not materially alter the situation,  because the money, so deposited, is  subject to the order of the owner.  The moral is never bet with a man  unless you know him tei be a sport,  and never act as stake-holder if you  can conveniently-avoid it.  the. meeting was marked by more  generous applause, indicating a much  more* interested and appreciative audience.  The chair was taken by Mr. D. F.  Jelly, who in expressing regret at the  absence of Mr. Burrell, was pleased to  know that an able representative in  Mr. Miller would take- bis place.  The meeting was opened by   A. Megraw,  who  dealt  briefly    with    local  topics,   particularly   the   question   of  railway connection   for   the   Similka-  mee'n and Mr.  Ross' relation  thereto.  Mr.' Miller in  opening  his   address-  paid a warm tribute to the worth and  ability of Mr. Burrell.,  He 'then , took  up the question of Orie.ntial  immigration,   dealing exhaustively   with'   it,  showing step by step the causes which  resulted in the large influx of Japanese  in the summer   of  1907.    Sir Wilfrid  .Laurier's promise in 1896 and the manner in which he violated that  promise  even to his contemptuous disregard of  the. wishes of the people of   this   province,   were   scathingly    dealt   with.  On the -question  of Better Terms  he  was equally effective.    He showed the  permanent disability under- which  the  province labored because   eif the   physical barriers, which renrlei-ed the  administration' of various   departments  relatively more   costly    than   in  the  other provinces, and claimed that any  allowance made by the federal government, to compensate fen- this should be  in perpetuity. He deprecated Duncan  Ross' attitude on this question, which  proclaimed him an enemy of*-the' province, and asked why a man who was  opposed to the province obtaining its.  rights should be sent again to Ottawa.  Various charges in the long indictment for maladministration and plunder of the country were taken up to.  show why the present government,  should ne>t again be entrusted with,  the management eif affairs.  In dealing with the deferred elect-iem-  he. enlarged upon the point well taken  bytheTrumpetthat.it was injurious  to the constituency to have it advertised abroad as a backwoods district  with nei transportation facilities. He  also compared this treatment eif the  ridinet by Duncan Ross with that ac-  ceireled by the Conservatives in IS9G,  when the riding was twie-c as large  and the transportation facilities not,  nearly equal to what they are now.  THE COLCHESTER CASE.  The Victoria Times and the Vernon  Okanagan are abeiut the only papers  that continue to shout Colchester elec-  tiem since the charges eif c-eu-ruption  against the member returned at the  by-election have been dropped. Their  vaporings at the present time are simply a little campaign fog with which  they are trying to obscure the vision  of electors and keep them from scrutinizing too narrowly the pilfering of  Liberal friends of the administration  who have been stealing from the  public   treasury.  Besides, why couldn't they have  drawn attention to the manly rebuke  which Hon. R. L. Borden administered  concerning certain irregularities which  it then appeared his friends had been  guilty of in that contest. Mr. Ben-den  teild his supporters that he "preferred  honest defeat to victory gained by  improper  means." ^ THE  HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   OCTOBER 22, 1908.  and  Similkameerx Advertiser.

They were predisposed in Laurier's favor because of the adulation of him in  the English press by English editors who knew as little of Canada, its public men and its public questions, as they did themselves.  Herein, again, is seen Sir Wilfrid Laurier's opportunism.  It is well-known, and the public records in  Canada prove it,  that Wilfrid.Laurier in opposition was anti-British and ready  at all times  to league  himself  with    those    English  speaking  Canadians who were most pronounced in their antipathies to  imperial influences in Canadian  affairs.    As one instance of this  we have only to note  his readiness in 1890 and 1891 to go with  'JRas  Wiman,   Ed.  Farrar   and  Richard   Cartwright for  Commercial Union  with the United  States, afterwards changed to  Unrestricted Reciprocity���������a policy so  grossly  disloyal   that  it  drove from the  Grit party in  Canada, such a man as Edward  Blake who in his address to his  constituents  in  West Durham  told them   that  lie  could   have  nothing   to  do  with   a    policy  which was the thin side   of  the  wedge of annexation.    In those  days annexation sentiment had  its home   in   the   ranks   of  the  Canadian    Liberal    opposition,  and imperialism, its home in the  ranks of the Conservatives.    So  pronounced was this opposition  to anything looking to  establishment    of    closer    relations  with the mother country on the  part of the leaders of the  Liberal opposition and in its ranks  that  when  any   fiscal    matter  came up in the House involving  discrimination between imports  from Britain and from the  United States,  any move  by the  government for imperial preference was invariab.lv met witlwi  the autonomy bill upon Alberta  and Saskatchewan.  To be the lion was Laurier's  ambition and to-day he is vainly calling himself "the lion  hunting' alone." His first step  lion-ward was. prompted by the  .opportunity to lionize it at the  Jubilee celebration in London  in 1897, and to make that honor  sure his opportunism prompted  him to volte face for British  preference in the session immediately preceding the Jubilee  event. By means of this and of  Kipling's "Lady of the Snows"  he rolled into London-in June  1897 on a chariot load of bouquets, getting the plaudits of  the English press -which gave a  wrong "steer" to unthinking-  Englishmen coming to this  cou ntry wh o w ere i'ndu eed to  vote the Grit ticket in Canada  because of it.  Three subsequent events (aud  there are a score more which  might be given) will serve to  show that his sudden conversion to British preference was  but a ruse to enable him to  gratify his personal vanity. The  first of these three v/as his opposition to allowing Canadian  troops to participate in th.e  Boer war in the early-fall of  1899. It is on record in the files  of the Globe newspaper that he  took the ground that it was unconstitutional and could not be  permitted, and only the mammoth indignation meeting in  Toronto made him climb down  from that position. Another  was his treatment of Lord Dun-  donald and the contemptuous  language by which he dubbed  British generals in Canada as  "foreigners". The third was his  conduct at the conference of  colonial premiers in London  when he hitched up with Botha  from the Transvaal,, ignoring  other premiers from the antipodes and rendering abortive  the purpose of the convention  by opposing matters which  were calculated to promote imperial unity.  All these are serving gradually to disillusionize the people  of Great Bi-itain. But an argument that i.s likely to have more  effect than any is when the  pockets of Grand Trunk Pacific  shareholders are touched by  the increased price of construction owing to the thieving  which Mr. Laurier has permitted his followers to eiigage in.  appreciation of it by adding  about 26 percent more to the  good majority they had formerly intended giving him.  That river dredge business  over at Penticton is about as  brazenly vulgar-as Duncan 'Ross  could well-make it. If electors  over there can't see through a  thing like thai and treat it as it  should be treated they will  justify Duncan's implied estimate of them.  The Greenwood Times has  broken out again in the line of  pre-election prophecy. It did  so in 1903 and again in 1907.  And now its latest prophetic  utterance, is that the arraignment of Cowan by Mclnnes in  Vancouver, means sure defeat  for Cowan. On the other occasion it was very, funny in the  cold gray dawn of the mornpg  after to read these little- prophesies pasted up on the wall, and  the Cowan 'try' looks very like  another of the same.  1336  THE BANK OF  1908  This Bank has a record behind it of nearly three quarters of  a century of successful banking in Canada, with assets  ...increasing every'year imtil they.now exceed $50,000,000.

HARNESS and SADDLES  IPS, BITS and SPURS  Next Monday will decide which  parly is to vulu the roost in Canada  I'm- the next five years. Should the  Laurier ge>vernment gn down it is an  easy guess that Duncan Reiss will  throw up the sponge, in Yale-Carihoo  and not go to the pedis on November  12 tli. Indeed senile assert that tho defeat in Yale-Cai-iheiei is so inevitable, in  any ease* that he would welcome the  defeat o!the government tei save his  face, for it would be a decided humiliation to be beaten in a deferred election  with ohe government returned.  Nevertheless lie* will have only himself to blame, for it was pointed , out  to liini months agei.  METEOROLOGICAL.  EDITORIAL  COMMENTS  About the weakest and most  ridiculous cry-baby plea that  could be advanced by a candidate is that of Hon. Wm. Tcm-  pleman who asks consideration from the electors because  he had given up a certainty for  an uncertainty in abandoning  the Senate for the Commons.  This i.s like the man who killed  his father and mother and  when being tried for the murder pleaded for leniency on the  ground that he was a poor  orphan.  Yale-Cariboo is proud of Martin Burrell.

Mrs. Ten-ill returned from Nicola  last week, accompanied by Mrs. Mac-  Phail, who will remain for ;<��������� few weeks  to regain strength after a severe, illness.  While there, is nothing definite yet  as tei when track-laying to Hedley  will begin, there is a strong hunch in  certain quarters that it won't be long  now.  W. J. Manery is in town this week  and showed the Gazette some of the  apples with which he toeik first prize  a,t the Nelson fair. These were the  Jonathan and yellow bell-flower.  .Tim. Gladden began work this week  in subdividing Brushy Bottom intei  five and ten acre lots. - There are  something eiver 350 acres in the parcel  and many choice fruit lots may be obtained from it.  Picture post-card scribblers at Davidson's. - /  The Steam shovel has completed  its work down at Bradshaws and a  gang are at work trimming up the  grade. This means that grading to  Hedley is practically completed and all  ready for the rails.   .  After all it was better fvor Mr. ���������Burrell tei. have delivered- that speech in  Vancouver on Saturday uight than to  have given it at Keremeos, for more  people in this riding will know eif it,  than if it were given any place, in  ;Yale-Cariboo;7 . ~  Jno. Gilhin brought the Gazette a few  samples of Granite Creek coal which  looks like the pure stuff, is glossy  black and glows brightly in the fire;  and he says there is 60 feet of it, enabling it to be handled with steam shovel  and put on the cars at a cost of 10  cents per ton.  -Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Kennedy drove  through as far as Princeton on Friday  last returning on Saturday evening.  It is understood that Mr. Kennedy  contemplates removing from Keremeos to Princeton shortly. Construction work now being practically all  located between Hedley and-Princeton, it is inconvenient for tho chief  engineer to reside so far away from  the centre of operations as Keremeos  has become.  It is a good thing to purchase a piece  of fruit land and plant it out in trees,  lint it is better still to 'take care of  them after they are planted. Experts  say that in some parts of tho province;  trouble*, is expected next season from  the Codlin moth, and spraying if left  off till next spring will be too late to  check the evil. J. A. Nesbitt, of Penticton, has made arrangements for  getting in a supply of Pendray's Ne). 1  winter tree spray of sulyhur, lime and  salt, which should make it hot for fruit  pests.    See his announcement.  Both the roads at Brushy Beittemi  are neiw in use, public traffic again  finding its way through the bottom  lands by the old route, and the new  road around the bank has smoothed  down nicely anel is for the; most part  hard anel firm anel will be good at all  seasons. The only draw-back is its  narrowness in places and tho difficulty  in passing where team's meet on it. It  might be; a good idea for teamsters to  have some 'understanding by which  all the teams going one way would  take; the road around the bank and  those going the opposite* direction keep  the road through the bottom. The  distance is practically the same.  Let your friends know you are alive.

Mr.  A.'H. Wade as president of the Conservative Association acted as chairman and introduced the candidate to  the audience.. Mr. Burrell, on hearing  that Mr. Winkler wished tei speak on  behalf of the socialist candidate stated  that lie could not spare him very much  time, as he elid not consider the Socialist party would peill a seven per cent  vote, in the constituency, and was,  therefore not a, very great factor in  the Yale-Cariboo election.  Mr. Burrell during the course eif his  speech touched on the Lemieux provision, (Rural Mail Delivery) also Civil  Service reform, which he stated should  be entirely nem-pr>litical, otherwise it  destroyed efficiency and encouraged  dishonesty. In his opinion the present Civil Service1 system was based on  political pull, not merit, find was a disgrace tfi the empire. . Touching on the  Grand Trunk Pacific he quoted from  Hansard the proposed cost of the  line per mile in 190-1 and the actual  cost in 1908.  Mr. Burrell explained Mr. Ross' attitude on Oriental Immigration, and  said at the present time* Mr. Ross appeared tei lie having a severe attack' of  Bowseritis, and undoubtedly when  the two gentlemen meet on the same  platform it would be as interesting as  a dog fight.  Regarding the Aylesworth Election  Act, the candidate said that it was the  last and certainly the most disgraceful thing that the Laurier government  had tried to put through, anel it was  only owing to Mr. Borden and his colleagues taking extreme measures and  blocking the supplies month after  month that it did not pass the house.  Geo. E. Winkler then spoke for  about fifteen minutes, touching on the  usual Seici.-distic subjects, trusts, hard  times, etc., inviting all to come and  hear Charles Bunting on Thursday,  the 22ud.  Mr. Burrell.continuing said that he-  was strongly.in favor of Better Terms  for British Columbia, while Mr. Ross  was evidently quite content with the  present arrangement, having- recently  stated that instead of the Dominion  owing B. C. anything, the slide "was  on the other foot, this province owing  the Federal Government $5,000,000.  On this question Mr. Ross is in a very  unique position, standing alone, as  even W. W. B. Mclnnis stated recently that he was very much in favor of  Better Terms.      .  Speaking more directly to the fruitgrowers Mr. Burrell stated that he  considered there should be duty on  fruit coming in from the south.  Touching on the deferred election in  this constituency he said it was absurd  to say it was impossible to bring the  .election off on the 2(3th, and was just a  piece of juggling on Duncan' Ross'  pai-t. In conclusion, Mi-. Burrell said  the main planks of his (platform were :  Honest administration of public affairs and honest dealing with public  money. Three rousing cheers were  given the candidate at the end of his  speech.  Mr. Burrell has created quite a good  impression among the people here. He  looks honest, and by the way he speaks  he gives one the impression that he  means everything he: says.

The i'gleives with which the ���������Similkameen ' Star ' handled Duncan Ross  couldn't have been ljiore than -four  ounce's, "which would: allow hut, two  ounces for each mauley. Of course  'Duncan's friends says it was only a  mixture of earth and water, but nevertheless the 'bunch of fives' was plainly  in evidence, and the marks left were  more than spatters; they were bruises.  A little  excitement was caused on  .Thursday evening, when the cabin on  Daly   Avenue' owned and occupied  by  Tom  Kelleig anel   A.  Wilkinson   was  found to be in flames..   Neither of the  owners was around nt the time, and it  is hoi khowir  just   how   it .occurred.  Kellog had lit a fire in the stove shortly before, it, and  was up  town   when  the cabin was discovered tei be em fire.  No either buildings, were*  near,  consequently, there was   little  danger  of  it  spreading, but the e:rowd that collected  imasiiori: while had an opportunity eif  realizing how helpless the town would  be with a serious fire in the absence of  hose and'hydrants.    All there was  to  ' depend on   was the* f^, inch   house service tap of the dwelling ho.-u;by,  occupied   by  C   H.  McDairmid,  and  one  length of hose ���������from   this.    There  was  a niunbi'i-nf rifle cartridges and a  box  eif detonators in the burning cabin (the  owners are prospectors) and  when the  fori inn- began tei go. the crowd "deemed  it  prudent,  to  thin-   out.    When   the  detonators went,  the explosion  scattered .embers   in  all directions.     The  owners had   been laying  in  considerable supplies- lately,   arid   these  with  personal effects meant considerable of  a loss.    The cabin was built five years  'ago, and was formerly owned and occupied by Frank Leigsden  and Eddie  !Mott.  HANDBOOK.  '(New Kdition issued March, 1308.)  SIZ1C:   Octavo.
