Elnihirst returned  from the const by the V. V. & E. on  the 14th. They spent ten days in Vancouver with friends.  Mr. E. D. Fargo is most favorably  impressed-with the Similkaineen district, and he intends to invest in a few  lots in Keremeos. * He went to Penticton on Monday.  Banker ..-Rome's assistant in the E..T.  Bank is here. The safe will be on  hand this week.  The Fruit Growers' Exchange met  in the office of the Keremeos Land Co.  on Saturday, and important matters  were considered. The report will be  given in my next letter.  Mr. K. Mattice is making- a sale of  his interest in part of his wonderful  fruit and vegetable ranch.  The government engineer, Mr. Gamble, did not give a favorable report on  the proposed site for a bridge on the  Similkameen river between Webster's  ferry and Ashnola creek.  On Saturday Mr. Royer came from  Fairview with two passengers, Messrs.  Collier and Lynx. The lynx was a  dead head.  Mr. Stoess i.s locating the course of  the big ditch across the Keremeos  townsite. Teams will be working on  that part of the ditch this week.  There are many and contradictory  reports of the shooting of Nelson  Chance on Monday morning between  I Kirby's hotel and the station. Chance  has since died. Fuller particulars will  be given ni*xt week.  We have had daily trains east and  west between Oroville and Keremeos  since* Oct. 5th. Is it too much to ask  the Ottawa- Government to give us a  daily mail. A daily mail by the V. V.  <fc E. would not ceist much and it  would accomodate many citizens.  It is three months since the telegraph  office was opened at the V. V. <fc E.  station here, and for a long time there  has been a government telephone at  Keremeos Centre. The distance between these offices is not more than a  mile. Government ownership of public  utilities is a fine theme for politicians  to dilate on when they are canvassing  for votes, but if our telephone system  as managed by Duncan Ross, M. P.,  and the Ottawa government is a fair  exhibit of what can be done in that  way by a government, the people  should pray to be delivered from it.  There is a gap of only one mile, and  mouths are taken to consider whether  [Mining World, Chicago |  The Barnes-King Development Co.  fraud, if such it proves to be, the extent and shocking nature of which has  been  disclosed  by  a  report made  to  stockholders by President John'Gillie  and  the  new  board   of   directors,   is  really the first actual wild cat that has  come out of the plethora of new concerns organized to operate in Montana.  After an exhaustive examination of  the mines in Feigns county, President  Gillie, and Vice-President- C. W. Good-  ale find that  there  i.s probably only  $50,000 worth- of ore in  reserve,  for  which the stock-holders have paid $2,-  000,000,  the amount of the company's  capitalization.   This body of ore has  been found since the new  company  toeik over tho property, sei that in the  opinion of the new eifficers  the  mine  practically had no  value  when it was  capitalized for $2,000,000.     It develops  that the  experts who examined  the  property for the promoters were AVill  Word of Helena, formerly an engineer  with the Amalgamated  Copper Co.;  Walter Harvey Weed, late of the United States Geological Survey,  and R.  B.   Lamb,    a   mining  engineer   well  known in certain sections of the west.  Word's report was especially flattering, as it accounted for a vast tonnage  in   reserve,   figured  out   tremendous  values and profits, and extremely low  cost of mining and  milling. ' What  was contained in Weed's report is not  known, as it was never made public in  whole,  and President Gillie has been  unable to get possession of the original.    Only extracts from it have been  given out, and they are very favorable  to the property.    John C. Lalor, manager of the Marcus Daly estate,  and  one of the promoters of the Barnes-  King Development  Co., was elected  first president of the new company.  On Monday night or the early, morning of Tuesday, R. G.'Shier's store wits  entered by thieves, and.-goods taken.  Mr. Shitvr, who usually sleeps in the  store'},, had gone, eiut to Penticton to  nieet-a commercial traveller, and consequent^ there was no one' in 'the  place, over-night.  The entrance had been effected at a  side window of the back shop, aiid T.  H. Rotherham from next door, who is  looking after the.* place in the proprietor's absence, found on entering the  store em Tuesday morning that..something was wrong, for goods were  strewn about em the counters and on  the. floor. As yet-it-is not known the  full extent -of the loss. Among the  loeit is' known to be two good overcoats, several sweaters, 'some underwear, socks and gloves, and several  boxes of boots.. Three odd boots' were  dropped outside, one eif which was a  heavy digging shoe.  Various theories are advanced as to  who the guilty parties might be. The  entry by this particular window on a  night when the store was empty,  points tei the fact that the thief was  well-informed as to local occurrences,  and some think that the dropping eif  that digging shoe outside was a mere  ruse to direct suspicion towards railroad laborers.  DIVIDEND SHOWS, UP WELL.  Smelter Returns From Kruger Mountain  Property��������� Now Bonded to  Spokane Party.  Last week Geei. Bowernian received  returns fremi a, shipment of 63,000 lbs.  of ore to the Granby smelter, which  they toeik entt last winter from the Dividend claim, on Ki-ugei- mountain,,  and which they shipped a few weeks',  ago -by V. V. & E. from Oroville*.  o The ore- went 6-10 of one per cent,  copper, .1 oz. silver, and 1.00 eizs. golel  per ton. When the moisture was deducted they had 31J tons at $31.54 per  ton, and were -allowed 05 % ofthe gold  at $20.00 per ounce. After all there is  neithing that'talks as eloquently eif the  bema, fides of a property as the smelter  returns.  A bond has been given to Douglass,  of Speikane, em the twei claims, the Dividend and Lakoview,- on the basis eif  $10,000 cash and 200,000 shares of stock,  in a new' company tei be formed-on a.  capitalization of 1,000,000 shares of $1  each. The bond also preivides for the  expenditure at ou'ce of ��������� $30,000 in -development.  ON  THE V. V. & E.   GRADES.  More Laborers Arriving to Push on the  Work���������Camps Getting in Shape.  COUNTY COURT.  Very Small  Docket for Hedley  and  Princeton.  On Thursday last Judge Brown held  County Court in Hedley. The only-  case up for hearing was that of the  estate of the Hedley Lumber Co. vs.  H. B. Brown, who was up on a judgement summons.  ,  After an examination of the dependent and some pointed remarks as to  the relative rights and responsibilities  of the individual and the community,  his Honor issued an order that the de-  fendent pay $10.00 per month until the  debt is wipeel out.  The past week has witnessed  much  reater progress on V. V. & E. construction than before. More men are  coming in . aiid the camps are getting  inshape to'accommodate larger numbers.  With the work of cross-sectioning  on the rock bluff done last week by-  Engineer Hale, the contractors em that  important piece of section work are  now.enabled to take hold, which they  are deling. No heavy bombarding has  yet taken place, but that will only be  a matter of a very few days now,  The various .contracts in the clearing  of right-of-way are gemig forward satisfactorily, so that it is neiw much  easier to follow the route and tell  where the road-heel is to be located.  This work must precede, cross-sectioning of the timbered portions of the  route.  R. B. Lamb  manager   of  was retained as general  M. J. HENRY,  3010 Westminster Road,       Vancouver.  the gap should be* closed.  The attention of the Attorney-General is called to the open violation of  the requirements of the Liquor Act.  The bars are kept open day and night  fen- seven elays in the week. There is  no government licence to keep a bar  open between 11 p.m. on Saturday and  1 a. 111. on Monday. Gambling is carried on openly in many of our hotels.  These violations of the law are winked  at by the officers of the government.  With a large force of foreigners anil  either men working on the V. V. & E.  from here west, it is necessary for the  protection eif life anil property that all  hotel-keepers between Keremeos and  Princeton should comply with all the  requirements of the Liquor Act.  the mine, and operations were directed by Superintendent Brule. Very favorable reports  came constantly from the mine until  the new board of directors was elected  in August last, and then the resignations of Lamb and Brule were requested aiid the new officers made the examination of the property, finding that  the mines had been worked out before  they were turned over to the new  company.  President Gillie finds that the stockholders were neit only defrauded in the  first instance, but that after the organization of the company its affairs were  shamefully mismanaged. An immense  amount eif useless machinery was purchased, "enough to run the Anaconda  mine," as Mr. Gillie expressed it. A  shaft was sunk at the most inappropriate place, anel poor judgment was used  in their development work. A leit of  money was spent in erecting a sawmill  many miles from the mine anel in sawing a lot of lumber that can never be  used by the company.  The chief promoters appear to have  been the late A. J. Campbell, attorney  for the Daly estate, and John C. Lalor,  manager for that estate. Because of  the prominence of the name of Daly  and the close association of the promoters with leading officials eif the  Amalgamated Copper Co., the Barnes-  King proposition gathered a great influential following. W. W. Chee'ley,  who represented the promoters in  Butte anel took the Butte subscriptions, had great faith in the reports of  the experts anel judgment eif Campbell  and Lalor, and is now himself a ruined  man as a result of the investments he  made in Barnes-King stock.  The promoters claim they paid $1,-  200,000 to E. W. King and his associates for the property, but it is known  that an option of $100,000 on the property was turned down by eithers. The  promoters gaye the new company the  property acquired anel a treasury of  $400,000 in exchange for the $2,000,000  stock. The treasury still contains  about $260,000, which is to be used for  development purposes in the hope that  another ore body may be found.  The. mines did not pay expenses for  some time before they were turned  over to the new company, as the latter  discovered when it assumed control  and had to pay an overdraft at a bank  fen- $24,700. Some of the most experienced mining men and the most astute  bankers in Butte were taken in on the  Barnes-King proposition anel leist hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is  estimated that nearly $1,500,000 was  taken out of Butte by the apparent  swindle. Mr. Gillie says if $100,000  had been paid for the property it  would have been a high price.  Among the more important stockholders are John D. Ryan, 9,000 shares;  C. F. Kelley, 0,000 ; John Gillie, 4,000 ;  J. S. Corette, 2,000; D. J. Hennessy,  0,000 ; D. Gay Stivers, 4,000 ; .John G.  Moroney, 9,000; W. W. Cheeley, 0,000;  L. O. Evans, 4,000; J. H. Vivian,.1,500;  Harry Gallwoy, 3,500; James Higgins,  3.000; C. W. Goodale, 3,000 ; John F.  Forbes, 5,225; all of whom paiel the  underwriting price eif $5 per share feir  their steick. Mrs. Marcus Daly owns  20,000 shares.  Some of the stockholders are preparing to institute suit against the  persons who are supposed to have benefited by the alleged fraud, and others  are threatening to ask for the appointment of a receiver. It is a curious fact  that the Clipper-Boss Tweed mining  scheme, which failed some years ago,  was a big losing venture for many of  the men who lost heavily in the  Barnes-King, and that Will Word and  Walter Harvey Weed made the reports on the Clipper-Boss Tweed property, upon which a company of Butte  and New York men was organized.  The Clipper-Boss Tweed also was a  gold proposition.  MURDER AT KEREMEOS.  Nelson Chance Shot Down in  Drunken  Brawl on Monday Morning-.  At an early hour on Monday morning Dr. Whillans received a call to  Keremeos to attend a man who had  been shot down in an affray which occurred between Kirby's new heitel and  the V. V. & E. station.  The victim was found tei be Nelson  Chance, well known in Hedle'y, having  done plastering for Brass <fc Boeing on  both the hospital and school-house.  He came here about a year ago from  Calgary with Gus McDermott, and his  home is believed to be at Park-hill,  Ont.  The shooting is said to have taken  place outside the hotel about 4:30 a. 111.  The assailant would not give his  name when taken into custody by  Constable Ewart. He was said to have  drifted" in from the other side of the  line, but later it is stated that he had  a fifth interest in a brick-yard at Armstrong, anel his name was Chas. Hind.  He bore a bad reputation feir getting  in tei   rows.  Dr. Whillans reached  Keremeos at  about 9 a. in. anel found Chance suffering great pain.     The bullet, of 32 calibre*, struck him em the*  left  side about  the base of the heart,  and  coming  in  contact with a, rib which  flattened it  out at  the point, passed around and  lodged in the back where it was found  imbedded,   anel   was  extracted.      Although  the wound  made was an ugly  one,   tho  doctor   thought   there   was  hope for recovery unless some internal  injury had been inflicted by the impact  e>f the bullet,   of which there is always  danger in like cases,  and the fact that  the  injured  man  had   been  drinking  alsei lessened his chances fen- re;ceivery.  The end, however, came at 12 o'clock  on Tuesday, anel brought the assailant  face to face with the crime of murder.  The eoremi'i-'s inquest  is   being held  as Ave go to press and it is to be hoped  that the inquiry will be thorough  and  searching,   that  the  blame   may   be  placed where it belongs.

Judge Brown took advantage of his  spare time in Hedley on Thursday  last to take a trip up the tramway to  the Nickel Plate mine. Like many  others who have visited the mine, he  was delighted with the experience.  The; ride on the electric railway was  particularly enjoyed. It is the highest railway in operation in Canada,  and the most scenic, anel yet it is useel  only for ore haulage anel is out of the  beaten paths of the globe-trotter.  The Gazette had the pleasure eif sampling a can eif prunes put up at Kere>-  nieeis by the Similkaineen Farmers'  Exchange. Last year they canned  tomatoes only, and succeeded in establishing a. splendid reputation feir their  products, but this year they have aelel-  ed either vegetables anel fruit tei the  output, among which is the prune,  which bids fair to establish still further the gooil reputatieiii alreaely gained. The cans are: filled to the top anel  the contents fresh anel well preserved.  Those who prefer a sweeter article can  add the re-qusite amount of sugar, so  if Mr. Jelly has erred on the degree ot  sweetening he has erred on the safe  siele.
