D. 1907. 40-10  Last week a fruit grower refused to  sell his improved fruit lot for $600 an  acre.  Mr. Huntsinger is V. V. & E. station  agent in place of Mr. McDaniel. Mrs.  Huntsinger and child are also here.  E. Quinton has purchased 22 acres  from the Beautiful Valley Land Co.  He returned to England and will he  back next spring.  W. H. Armstrong, president of the  Keremeos Land Co., and his wife were  in town for five days. They, went east  by Sunday's express.  Mr. Rome, manager of the E. T.  Bank, is here, and his assistant will he  on hand this week. The bank will open when the safe arriv.es.  The Fruit Growers' Exchange has  leased part of their warehouse to E. B.  Nerning for a feed store. He is now  unloading twei cars of grain.  Lawyer Wilson, of Winnipeg, who  has been visiting with his brothers  here for several weeks, left for Vancouver by V. V. & E. express train on  Tuesday.  Mrs. anel Miss Lenve* returned from  Victoria by V.V. He E. on Wednesday.  After the damp atmosphere of the  coast they will enjoy the bright sunshine of the Similkaineen.  The Keremeos post office, at the old  town, eloseel on Tuesday, October  15th, and Keremeos Station post office  will be opened em the following day at  the new town.  E. D. Fargo, who-for several years  was accountant for the Cariboo Consolidated Mining Ce>. at Lafontaine,  near Barkerville, was in Keremeos on  Saturday.  W. H. Armstrong was over the big  ditch and found that the work Avas  making satisfactory progress. Five  more teams will be added to the  present force.  Kere'ini'os occupies a high place in  the prize list of the Westminster Fair.  Frank Richter, with a comparatively  small number of exhibits, captured 23  prizes. Next year more of our fruit  growers slieiulel have an interest- in  making up exhibits.  Mr. Alniepiisf, of the* lumber firm of  Alinquist-<.v. Cudworth, was in town on  Moiidny; Oe-t. 7th, and completed arrangements to start a lumber yard,  with D. J. Iniiis in charge of it. After  this week all kinds of lumber will be  in the yard.  Rev. J. Thin-burn Conn  expressed a  wish .last week  to   pay a visit te> the  Nickel'Plate mine, and the Gazette arranged te) accompany him on;the trip.*  The distance from Hedley to the Nickel  Plate inine is about 1J miles -horizontally ,. and -nearly.,'. a7 mile   vertically.  The greater part of the'distance- vertically is made cm the gravity tramway.  Occasionally   some   who contemplate  making the trip.are apt to pause when  they view  the steep incline and the  uninviting vehicle upon which it is to  be made.    But the preacher was game,  and when the start  was  made there  was seen  the  unique spectacle of   a  western   editor   piloting   a   sky-pilo't'  skyward.    The experience was a rare.  one fen- Mr., Conn,  who is an ardent  lover eif nature, but  who never saw it  before on so grand a. scale, and he was  ready to admit that his native hills in  bonnie  Scotland  were only knolls in  comparison with the. sea of-mountains  spread out before him  and stretching  away on all sides, butfringe;doff in the  west with  the jagged   peaks   of  the  Hope range,   having no more system  nor regularity than the teeth of an old  comb.    These taught in the form of an  object lesson the meaning of. the word  "Sierra," that we all,  like Mr. Conn,  conned over in boyhood in  the pages  of the geography text-books with but  little conception of what the real thing  woulei leiok like.  The Nickel Plate, had a special interest for Mr. Conn, it being the first gold  mine he had seen, and for the Gazette  its   principal  interest was in the manner in which the mine had been opened  up, with the systematic course of development that had been pursued since  our last visit.    By the kindness of Mr.  G. P. Jones,   the superintendent,  we  wore shown through the underground  workings of the Nickel Plate by foreman J. McKinnon,  \vhe> is one of the  oldest miners in the Nickel Plate and  has seen  the  mine develop from  its  earlier stages to its present  condition,  when a large tonnage could be extracted from the many faces and stopes now  exposed   for   attack   by   the   miners.  Wonderful as the development of the  Nickel Plate itself has been, the workings of the Sunnysides and the splendid way in which  the  ore  bodies   are  opening up is more so.  The feature which seemed to impress  itself most upon one is the almost total  absence of anything in the shape of  waste dumps, especially around the  Sunnvsides. There is to be seen the  huge glory hole* anel the long inclines  from the bottom of it, but no waste  dump of either country rock or barren  ore, for enormous as the excavation  has been it has all gone down by the  electric trains to the ore bins, and  thence by the gravity train to Hedley,  where the stamps, vanners and cyanide vats have had their turn at it- before the sluice launders have discharged the residue, of slimes into the settling ponds and sands to the tender  mercies eif Twenty-mile creek and the  Similkaineen  river.  Two new glory holes are also opening  up between the Sunnysides and the  Nickel Plate, the ore from both of  which is delivered direct to the-electric  tramway, although a railway spur is  now being put in to run the train into  one of them.  There is an air of neatness about the  works up em the hill as well as around  the mill at Hedley, and altogether it is  an ideal property to work in. One  thing noticeable, however, was that  the numerous dwellings that were formerly occupied by miners' families are  now mostly empty. Different managers have different ideas about this.  Some prefer married men; others bank  on single men, and at present the  bachelor appears to have the call.  The  (Greenwood Ledge,)  ���������   In reference to the location of a   site  for the bridge across the Kettle river  near  Bock   Creek',---the .residents   of  Greenwood   electoral -. district should  have nothing  to say.    The  bridge  is  being built out of the appropriation  for the 'Similkameen riding.    It would  be just as reasonable for the people of  Feu-nie riding to ask the people of the  Siimlkaineeri to build, a bridge across  the Elk river.    Because Mr. Nad en e>r  his followers promised a bridge at the  Riverside hotel does not impose an obligation on  Mty Shatford  te>   build it  there..; Mr. Shatford  is fulfilling bis  .promise to his constituents; Mr. Naden  is in.the:north looking after his own  interests.    Mr. Shatford is a resident  of the Similkameen, and is  personally  interested in the prosperity of the district; Mr. Naden is not -a resident of  Greenwood district, and is  interested  only, in drawing his salary as a mem-  Iter of the legislature.    The bridge  is  now being built,'and will prove a great  convenience to the people of both  districts.    We in Greenwood riding have  no right to dictate to the people of the  Similkameen as to how orwhere their  appropriation.shall.be' expended.  SHAUGHNESSY AND THE M. &V  One Object of the Visit of the President of  ���������>     the C. P. R. Is to Look Into  M. & V., Scheme.  FAIRVIEW NOTES.  The public school will likely re-open  in a-few weeks.  Sherman Haynes, of Mielway was in  town on Saturday.  Mr. and Mrs. Rippin of Park Ranch  were in town on Saturday. Mr. Rip-  pin says that his fruit trees are in fine  condition.  The Rev. Mr. Gamer-em held an a. in.  service here on Sunday. He walked  from Keremeos on Saturday, and did  not plead weariness.  On Tuesday, the 22nd inst., a trial  between two residents of the lower Similkameen will draw many witnesses  and a hot wave to Fairview.  Mr. Putinan Jr. a mile west of the  Stemwinder is recovering from a severe attack of fever. He is one of the  late arrivals from the United States.  Dr. Elwood Meade, of Washington,  D. C, spent part of two days here last  week. He was accompanied by F. H.  Latimer and Messrs. L. W. and W. T.  Shatford.  If the C. P. R. will continue to dally  much longer with our railroad propo-  sition, the Great Northern branch  from Oroville to Penticton may be  built. Then the C. P. R. would move  heaven and earth to prevent such an  outrage.  Three fine blankets were taken from  a clothes line here last week, and later  two of them were found badly cut up.  A man guilty of such conduct is too  low iu the scale of moral degradation  to receive any further notice. Free  lodgings would be in order.  Edward .Tames, an old prospector,  was taken from Rock Creek to Fair-  view by Harry Brown. At Camp  McKinney Mr. Brown hael to call on  Hugh Megraw to assist him. Mr.  James' mental powers gave way about  two weeks ago owing to physical weakness. After an examination here by  Dr. White, he was taken by Constable  Tooth to Penticton. Messrs Megraw  and Brown returned East on  Sunelay  The visit of SirThrimas Shaughnessy  of the C. P...R. to the. west is always .-in  event of interest, but when the announcement is made that em this occasion lie will examine in to .the feasibility'  of taking over thcdiarter of the Midway '& Vernon- and building the road,  it takes on special intere^st te> those  dwelling in several localities in south-,  ern Yale.  About a month ago, representatives  of ail English syndicate were on the  ground investigating the scheme, and  one representative, W. E. Morris, i.s  still in Vernon collecting -information'  and awaiting the decision of his principals, whe>, if they take the charter  over, will build the line and lease it-  either to the C. P. R. or the Great,  Northern to operate; but from-'the,  fiict that a- C. P. R. engineer accompanied the examining party it would  look as if they weiukl have the preference.  ������������������If the'building eif the road is left to  the C.P.Ri it is very doubtful whether'  they would build more tiian a portion;  of it, and the portion  left  unbuilt  by  them  would  be   that lying   between  Vernon iiiid the-ihouth eif Wilkinson ;  creek on the West Fork of Kettle river.  Rumors have been current in  Midway for several weeks that the C.P.R.  would resume building west of Midway  in a few weeks and that  they-." would.,  use the Mielway & Vernon^ grae:le^be-  tween there and Rock Creek.  There are at present two desirable  ends for the C. P. R. to obtain in the  region immediately west of Midway.  One is to tap the West Fork and the  other is to connect up between Midway  and Nicola. These two ends could both  be secured in the building of one piece  of road, and that would be to build the  Midway <fc Vernon as far as Wilkinson  creek on the West Fork, strike across  to the Okanagan anel thence through  by way of the Similkameen, and according to the Vancouver Province,  they have had that in view ; but that  would be poor comfort for Vernon and  Kelowna,-"whe>se interests would be  served only by the construction of the  entire road from Midway through to  Vernon over the divide between the  head-waters of the West. Fork and  Mission  creek.  Meanwhile, Sir Thomas is out here  with some grips in one of which is said  tei be his thinking cap, and by and by  we shall see what we shall see.  BLOODSHED ON ALASKA RY.  Reported That Six  Railway Surveyors  Had  Been  Shot.  management have allowed the men to  take up their quarters in the cottages,  but only in a few instances has this  been taken advantage of, the most of  the miners preferring to stay with the  bunk-house. Superintendent Jones  has been able to retain a good class of  miners. Comfortable shower baths eif  hot and cold water have recently been  provided for the men, and in the dining room good wholesome me.-ils are.  put up. This possibly helps to account  for the fact that in going throue-h the  stopes the candle light often reveals  the familiar faces of old reliables who  can always be counted on for an honest  day's work, and who know when they  get a square deal. This after all is the  true basis of permanent good-will between labor and capital.  People of this district are particularly interested in the railway-building  war at present going on in Alaska.  Much of this interest arises from the  fact that Mr. M. K. Rodgers, formerly  of this place, is concerned in the struggle, he having the oversight of build-  of the Copper River and Northwestern  railway for the Guggenheinis.  Last week a report which has the  appearance of being more or less sensational appeared in some of the coast  papers, in which it was stated that  a party of Guggenheim men, under a  deputy-marshall named Ed. Hussy,  had fired on a party of railway suryey-  ers for a rival company and killed one  man, wounding five others so seriously  that three of them were expected to die.  The story geies that Hussey hael his  men in ambush and ordered the surveyors of the other road to steip work.  They, thinking it was only a bluff,  paid no attention to the order, but  went on with their work when a  fusilade of bullets brought six men  down, with he result above stated.  The affair, if accurately reported,  looks like very bad work, but very few  in Hedley will be disposed to believe  that- M. K. Sodgers who was always a  strong upholder o������ law and 'order in  this country would countenance any  violence eif that kind. Of course* in a.  country where the civil power is toei  weak and too rotten to give adequate  protection to life and property a man  might be forced to follow the ways of  the country and take steps to protect  his own. If this was a case of that  kind, the Guggenhiems were certainly  up against a piece of hard luck in getting hold of such a fool as this man  Hussey proved himself to be.

WE HONOR HIM BY PROXY  Although we. in the.  interior of  the  -..-..province hael not the privilege of meet-  ,   ing.Rudyard Kipling, it  was  pleasing  to note that the coaste-ities rose to the  occasion anel   exte-nded  a fitting welcome'to   Britain's great "bard of empire"���������the most iniperial-niinded man  in modern British letters.    If ever an  institution demonstrated its usefulness  it is the Canadian Club which  is now  represented in all the larger centi-es of  population in each  province;   and  in  no  instance  has its  hospitality  been  more deservedly extended than in   entertaining   this   poet   eif   the   people.  This incident (or rather se.iies eif incidents  foretell appea.lance eif Kipling  at a Canadian Club gathering in  his  honor during   his journey  ae;ross the  broad   dominion) stands   euit   as   distinctly  illustrative of a feature  that  was already   well   illustrated   in   his  writings, anel that is the  many-sidedness of the man.      Those   of   us   who  have deeply admired him  for twenty-  years see   in   these speeches of his be-  fen-e the Canadian Clubs of Winnipeg,  Vancouver and Victoria,  fresh  cause  feu admiration   and   delight,   for   we  find him in a new role   which   is  that  of  the public speaker   who, when he  speaks, speaks as he writes,  and that  is with a fresh message for the people.  We  of   the   backwoods,   living   year-  after ye������ai as pioneers em the* outposts  of empire,   looked  em  him  as a poet  distinctly our  own :   but we  are  not  jealous   that   they    of   the   eli-awing-  ��������� rooms and  the   e-lubs   have   had   the.  honeii- of  meeting,   entertaining   and  being entertained by him.      We still  believe that from his  works  we know  him better than they do,  for he has  pictured   se:e*nes    anel   expressed   the  thoughts and aspirations peculiar'tei  our eiwn lives,   of   which   they   of  the  drawing-rooms   can    understand   but  little. To the backwoodsman Kipling's  poems and  stories,, like  his  banjo  in  the semg, could say  "1 travel with the cooking-pots and pails.  I'm sandwiched 'twocn the coffee and the  pork."  Many of his profe-ssed society admirers do so because it is considered gooel  form and fashionable. To them his  rise into world-wide literary fame has  been liieteeu-ic. They didn't know eif  him until the full tide of his fame  caught them up and boie them along.  Like thei.se in holy writ eif whom it  was said "Mot all who say Lord, Lord,"  so of  these  superficial  admirers who  METEOROLOGICAL.

Alex Bell, postmaster at Princeton,  wiis in town lust   week.  Mrs. W. H. Lowe, of Keremeos, and  her son Charlie were in town on Tuesday. ..-.'.;''���������  Mrs. Reyely spent a few days at the  mine last week, the guest of Mrs. G, P.  Jones.  P, H.  Biirnliain,   of   Grand  Forks,  District Freight Agent ten- the  Great'  Northern, was in town on Tuesday.  Mrs. J. D. Brass, who has been visiting friends at Colville, Wash, for a-  couple of .months,' returned home on.  Saturday.  Rev. J. Thurburn Conn will meet  the miners at the Nickel Plate this  evening after six p. m. and make their  acquaintance.'  Mrs. 1. L. Deardorff returned on  Monday from Victor, Montana, where  she has been visiting friends since the  early part of July.  Mrs. T. Brown returned on Monday  from Spokane where she had gone  with her daughter Hollie to consult a  specialist.  0. A. McDonald, of Lawrence and  McDonald, who bought the Webster  ranch at Keremeos was in town on  Monday. He was making a flying trip  to Princeton.'  A phthisicky engine on the V.V.&E.  that was sent to pull Saturday's train  to Oroville had a hard time on the  grade at Bridesville, taking five hours  on five miles.  Dr. Mathison went up to the Nickel Plate on Thursday and spent several busy days. Up there he claims to  have the highest dental office in the  Dominion of Canada.  . Pete Helelstab came down on Tuesday's stage from Princeton and went  back yesterday. He and Finlay Fra-  ser are going over to Merritt, the new  coal town of the Nicola valley. 7 7  "P. Whimster, of Portage la Prairie,  and E. D. Fargo, of Barkerville, were  in"town this week. Mr. Whimster  was in town early in the -summer' and  the Similkaineen still looks good to  him.        '.'���������''" '���������  G. B. Lyon has in operation on his  ranch a hydraulic ram which pumps  600 gallons per hour of water up on  his bench land. Owing to delay in  forwarding, it was not in time for this  year's crop.  W. J. Forbes went down to Keremeos on Saturday afternoon, and from  there he expected to go over to Apex  Camp. Development in that' section  this summer has been attended with  good results-cm various properties.  Ii. A. R. Rome, the manager of the  Eastern Townships Bank which is  opening up in Keremeos, took a run  up to Hedley by Royer's stage on  Tuesday, returning next day. He expects to open up in a few days as the  safe is on the way.  Mr. G. D. Miller of Vancouver, Inspector of Inland revenue, paid Hedley a visit last week. As there are no  blind pigs in this vicinity, and the  Hedley brewery is conducted on severe  moral lines, the inspector's duties were  not burdensome.  Mr. J. D. Brass came down on Saturday's stage from Princeton, and reports satisfactory progress on ��������� the  school building. Had they been able  to secure a plasterer at the time they  required him, they could have been  through in about ten days more.  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Richter, of Keremeos, hayo been spending a very  pleasant vacation in a tour of the  coast cities, renewing old acciuaint-  ance. While in Victoria, their infant  daughter, Kathleen, was baptized on  Oct. 9th. at St. Andrew's Roman  Catholic Cathedral by his grace, Archbishop Orth.  Geo. Bowerinan, Dr. McEwen and  R. J. Edmond started up Twenty mile  on Saturday on a hunting expedition.  The new wagon road up Twenty mile  canyon has brought a new hunting  ground right to our doors. Pal-tie's  can drive up now to the Forks from  which a trail leads into the open hilly  MONTHLY RIFLE MATCH.  After allowing the monthly shoot  for September to go by default, the  October shoot eif the Hedley Rifle, Association was pulled off on the 13th.  Only three competitors showed up, J.  Corrigan, G. H. Sproule and A. Megraw, and considering the conditions  the shooting was well up to or a little  over the average.  The 300 yard range was shot first, in  a bad, dull light, the only dull morning  that there had been for  a"couple ��������� of  weeks;   but as it was constant and  could be handled bythe care necessary  for such  conditions,   it didn't matter  so  much,  although   it  brought  high  score down  to 19 out eif a possible 25.  It was at the 400 yard range, however,  that competitors had a. hard piece of  luck when  in  the middle of the score  the sun broke through the clouds and  slumped scores like a Wall street panic,  the elevation which was good for bulls  eyes and inners at the  beginning of  the score,7giying a row of outers  that  were barely misses on the bottom of  the target and serving out figure 2's  impartially   to each'competitor ������������������who  was shooting at the  time.    Vigorous  positive re-adjustment to recover -the  drop-of some three feet in elevation  became necessary, and when this was  done the score went back ...again . from  outers to bulls-eyes and inners.    Attire 200 yards, the light was all right  and remained constant, with the result  that there was good scoring.    Of  the  whole  IS shots fired at thisiange by  the three competitors  there  was only  one shot  that was less than an inner,  and it was a- lonely'magpie.    Two, of  the scores were 22 each out of a possible 25, and the third 20,  or- ah aggregate of 6-1 out of a possible 75 at, this  range,  giving an average of 85^ per  cent, per man.  The cup and medal were won by A.  Megraw for the second time on a total;  of 60,   The medal was contested-this  time on the 300 and 400 yard ranges.   .  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������^���������^<������-������-������<g><^^������--������������^������^>'������,<  Heating Stoves!

Evans ��������� Physical Features and  Geology , on   Route  to.  - West   Fork. . ��������� |  In the latter part of January of the ;  present year 1 made a trip down the j  Similkameen Valley. The points of j  interest touched were from the vicin- j  ity of Hedley City to Keremeos,thenee  to Fairview and Osoyoos Lake, up j  Anarchist mountain, and thence to j  Rock Creek, distance about 50-miles, j  The West Fork'of Kettle River was i  then ascended to the Sallie mine,'a I  distance of 'iS miles, making a total  of !Ki niiies.  In addition to the interesting solid  geology of most of the route traversed  is that a portion of it over the international'zone is already intersected  by the V., V. &.E. branch of the  Great Northern.  The road, from Fairview and Osoyoos Lake passes through a country  which for years has been recognized,  as one of the largest and best cattle  ranges in the province. This applies  especially to much of the country  nearer Fairview and on. the Okanagan side of the divide. Large bands  of cattle were seen in fenced fields  in the shelter of bushes and trees  where, notwithstanding the snow,  the grass was still available.  Okanogan Valley is the lowest  point, on the international boundary  ���������between the Red River of the north  and the Pacific coast. According to  some observers Lake Osoyoos, which.  is merely an expansion of the Okanogan River, has an elevation, of 913,  92S and 1,000 feet above sea level.  Bauerman gives 928 feet and Dawson  about 1,000 feet. The valley of the  Okanogan is deeper than the Columbia itself at the international boundary. The mountains possess considerable relief and south of the Big  Bend of the Columbia they reach an  elevation of 4,500 feet.  On the western side of Lake Osoyoos a great change was noticed in  the character of the rocks seen. The  prevailing type noticed was a very  coarsely laminated gneiss filled with  crystals of feldspar.  The dip of the gneiss is about 25  degs. N. W. About a mile farther  eastward, about 1,000 feet above the  lake, it changed to 15 degs. in an  easterly, direction. This series has  been correlated with the Shusnap  series of Dawson.  The slope for nearly the whole distance from Osoyoos is covered with  fine gravel and eolian sand. On the  eastern side on the Rock creek slope  black slates with thin bands of conglomerates are occasionally exposed  but over much of the surface they  are concealed, but a few hard porphyry dikes are seen penetrating  through the superficial covering.  I subsequently ascertained that at  Rock Creek the Colville trail strikes  the main Kettle. This river follows  a very tortuous course, crossing the  international boundary three times  and finally emptying into the Columbia about two miles to the north of  Old Fort Colville.  The area is remarkable for the extreme character of the rock altera-  ��������� tions, as well as for the unusual  abundance of porphyry dikes, greenstone and syenites which intersect  the slates and gneisses throughout  this portion of the valley.  In the Rock Creek gorge the black  slates are exposed in steep cliffs with  a S. W. dip. Farther to the eastward  some thin slaty and irregular limestone bands are associated with them.  These have an east dip of 4 to 5 degrees.  In the Rock Creek district the impression with regard to the geology  of the country that is conveyed by a  superficial examination is, that it is  equally divided between intrusions  and interstratification.  The West Fork of the Kettle river  begins its northward course near the  old town of Rock Creek, and the distance to the Sallie mine is less than  38 miles.  On leaving the Rock Creek depression and ascending the West Fork of  Kettle, after a few miles are overcome, a marked change occurs in the  rocks.  Intrusives occur as syenitic granite, rather of a whitish gray, though  at intervals some fine grained bio-  tites were noted in passing.  West Fork is known as a "big  country." It lies between the Arrow  Lake- Kootenay River system on the  east and the Okanogan water system  on the west.
