WYNNE,  Manager  The adjourned liospital meeting on  Wednesday night of last week augured  well for the success of the scheme, (for  the attendance was larger than tit any  previous meeting and those present  seemed to throw a degree of earnestness into the consideration iihd discussion of the question that was most  encouraging.  In the absence of Mr. Fraser, chairman of the first meeting, Mr. W. A.  McLean was appointed to the chair  and F. H. French was secretary of the  meeting. The representation from the  Nickel Plate was much larger than at  any previous meeting, and among the  men from the mine J. McKinnon, W.  Mills and Mr. Anderson ''took an active  part in the meeting.  The committee appointed at the  former meeting to consider the matter  of cost of building, suitability of site,  cost of maintenance and available  revenue, made a report in which it was  shown that from subscriptions already  nnido. there was available '.'.'$830, which,  with the provincial grant of $1000 payable when a board of directors is appointed, will make ,$1,830 for building.  A further sum of $500 could be subscribed, making $2,330 for construction  and furnishing.  In the matter of available site the  report stated that the committee had  .received offer of two lots from L. Hed-  lund on his townsite to the south of  S. L. Smith's residence,'and from the  Hediey Townsite Co.  of two lots on  the Warrimoo addition to the north of  Mr. Greenhill's residence.   They also  interviewed Mr. M. K. Rodgers,  who  preferred that the hospital should be  erected in the town, but if a suitable  site could not be obtained there, he  would consider the matter of arranging  for a site on the/smelter flat. The committee estimated that the cost of a  building would  lie about $2,500 and  furnishing about $500.  In reference to  revenue the report could give nothing  definite except the provincial grant of  $500 per annum until definite arrangements could be made with the employees of the different mining companies.  The report of the   committee  was  adopted, and the matter of organization discussed.  The all-important question to deckle  was whether the data furnished wtis  sufficient to warrant the meeting in  proceeding with the work of organization.  Correspondence was read from the  secretary of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital and financial statements giving  receipts and expenditures under various headings. By this it was seen  that the Vernon hospital had various  sources of revenue to help keep the  pot boiling, which would not he available here. Among these might he  nn ntioned the grants from various  municipal councils.  Dr. McEwen,   who  was  thoroughly  conversant   with   hospital   work and  hospital organization, gave some most  valuable  information and made suggestions that  were  most useful.    He  gave the cost per diem of treatment in  the Vancouver hospital, and outlined  some of the modifications which might  be found necessary in  the case of an  hospital that must  be conducted on  simpler and less  expensive lines.    He  approved of  the  system  of lessening  the cost of nursing by the employment  of probationers,  and  pointed out the  advisability of having the organization  such that in the board of directors only  one or two directors would retire each  year and thus a sufficient number of  old hands would  be on  the  board  to  maintain any general  line  of policy.  The   doctor   was   pronounced   in  his  views as to the need of a. hospital  in  the Similkameen Xalley and was quite  sanguine of its success  if the people  would take hold  of the matter with  a will.  Dr.   Whillans   also   considered  the  time most opportune, and said that,  except in the case of treatment of patients who were broke and could not  pay for their treatment, the cost of  running the institution would not be  so great as some were counting on,  Mr. A. H. Brown had misgivings as  to the wisdom of undertaking the task  of maintaining a hospital with the  limited revenue in sight; and Mr.  Mills also saw matters in very much  the same light. ,  c The chairman advised the appointment of a committee with extended  powers to go ���������'-exhaustively into the  question, and have all possible data  ready for another general'.' meeting to  be held later. The committee appointed were, Dr. Whillans, J. McKinnon,  W.-'A. McLean, W. Anderson, Dr. Mc-  Ewen, F. H. French aud J. J. McDonald, and they are; expected to select  and recommend a site, formulate  plans for a building, and obtain such  further information as may be desired;  CONCERNING THE FLYER  PASSENGER TRADE IS INCREASING WITH  EVERY TRIP.

SOB-CONTRACTS LET  Simms &; Shields, the Contractors, Award Sub-contracts.  WORK TO BEOIK VERY SOON  A Distinguished Visitor.  Hediey had the honor of a visit at  the end of last week from the honourable Mr. Justice Martin of the Supreme  Court of British Columbia, who enjoys  the reputation-' of being the leading  Judicial authority on mining law in  Canada. He is the mining specialist  of the bench in British Columbia, the  greatest inining province in the Dominion, and his two volumes,-"Martin's  Mining Cases," published by the Cars-  well Co. of Toronto, are now the standard reference texts on mining law for  the members of the legal profession in  this province, inasmuch as they cover  the whole ground of mining legislation and mining litigation in this  province, bringing everything down  to March first, of the present year.  Another work which adds to his fame  as tin author even more than that of  the "Mining Cases," is the book known  as "The Hudson Bay Land Tenures,"  inasmuch as the historical interest  which is imparted to the work- gives it  more widespread interest and a more  extended clientele than the members  of the legal profession.  Justice Martin was holding court at  Nelson, Rossland and Greenwood, and  learning in the latter town that Royer's  Overland Flyer was giving connection  between the Boundary and Similkameen, he preferred taking this route  to the Coast instead of going around  by the Arrow Lakes, ami.especially as  he had heard so much about the Similkameen from his friend Hon. Edgar Dewdney, ex-governor. He arrived in Hediey on Friday evening expecting to catch a stage to Penticton  next morning, but learned that none  would leave until Monday. This left  him a- day to look about and become  more acquainted with conditions than  he could possibly do by merely passing  through.  The Gazette found the honorable  gentleman to be exceedingly kind and  affable and ready to discuss matters  relating to the welfare of the district.  His youthful appearance fooled us all  and he was sometime in town before  it became known who he. really was.  He was agreeably surprised with the  progress that had been made in the  absence of transportation . facilties;  and in company with Mr. M. K. Rodgers made a tour of inspection of the  works of the Daly Reduction Co. on  Saturday. He left for the Coast on  Monday morning, going out by Wel-  by's stage to Penticton.  The overland ���������flyer continues to make  its 'trips on time. This, however, is to  be prevented for a time at least by a  newly appointed customs collector at  Osoyoos, who has given orders that  Royer's stage must henceforth drive up  to Osoyoos find report to him.  In last week's Gazette the time of  leaving Hediey was placed at 6:30  o'clock, but this should have been 6  straight. It appears that two different  time .cards have ��������� been issued and the  time of starting has now been 'made  half an hour earlier. Don't, therefore,  wait until 6:30 to take the flyer but  get around at 6 sharp, for if you don't  you'll have to walk.  Six changes of horses tire made each  way in making the trip. The changes  are at Keremeos, Richter's lower  ranch, Oro, Chesaw, Rock Creek and  Greenwood.  22 Miles Let Out to Sub-Contractors.���������-  r.ooo Men to be Employed.���������-The  Connection Below Oroville Still  Abeyance.  in  AN   OUTSIDER'S   VIEW.  H.  T. Pemberton of the   Montreal and  Boston Talks on His Similkameen Trip. 7  CARIBOO'S FIRST VEHICLE.  Odd Carriage of By-gone Days Dug up  for  Dominion  Fair.  New Westminster, B. C, May���������A  vehicle odd and ancient, the first to  reach the Cariboo gold digging before  the wagon road was completed in 18(59,  and which was at that time a matter  of much curiosity to the miners, has  been dug up on the Royston Australian  ranch at Alexandria, B.C., and will bo  on exhibition tit the Dominion Fair to  be held here from Sept. 27 to Oct. 7.  The vehicle was the invention of Mr.  Royston, who, with the assistance of  Mr. Olsen, propelled it into Quesnell  loaded with supplies. It has but one  wheel, in the centre, and is operated  by two men tit a pair of handles each  on either end. It was peculiarly adapted to getting over the rough country  in the days of its service.  Mr. H. T.  Pemberton,  manager of  the Montreal & Boston Company, who  was here a week ago in company with  W. T. Hunter of Greenwood, was interviewed on his return to  the Boundary and gave some of his impressions.  Mv. Pemberton's stay here, was regrettably very short,, and it is'unfortunate that some of his impressions were  influenced by the "reports written five  years ago by a prominent inining engineer" rather than from personal observation of the properties themselves.  The Similkameen five years ago, as  viewed by cold-blooded mining men  on the very limited amount of development work done tit that time, and the  Similkameen   of  to-day,   as  may be  judged from the result of the only development of tiny considerable amount  that- has been  done since,  is quite a  different thing.  To the reporter, Mr. Pemberton says:  H. T. Pemberton, the local manager  for the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, who is just back from ti trip to the  Similkameen country, was interviewed  by your correspondent last week with  a view of obtaining reliable news concerning   the mines and prospects in  that section.    Mr. Pemberton was perfectly willing to give what information  he had gathered during his nip.   He.  said that he had access to reports written five years ago, by a prominent mining engineer, on a large number of the  properties in that section; this gentleman had spent over six months in the  country and  his   reports   were   both  faithful and exhaustive.    Mr. Pemberton said that so little work  had  been  done on the bulk of the claims that the  same  report  was a very fair outline  of most of the "properties to-day.     Mr. I  Pemberton said further that the prices  being asked by the owners were out of  all reason, considering the fact that on  most of the claims nothing but crop-  pings could be seen. The claims might  be. worth a million and might not be  worth a dollar; there, was no  wav  of  Contracts for building 22 miles of the  Great North ern's Sin 1 i 1 kam eej 1 Val ] ey  extension, between Oroville, Wash.,  and the International line, have 'been1'  let to Spokane men. A. thousand laborers will be'employed for a, year, as the  work is unusually hen.vy. Material is  being rushed into the-field, and operations will be in full swing within a  -month;  L. E. Shields, of Siniins.& Shields,  general contractors for the Great  Northern, was at Oroville last week.  His firm has the general contract for  the \vork.    He. said :  "Sub-contracts  have- been   divided  Parsons  & Boomer)'  among Winters,  Porter Bros.,   Jones & Onsued   and  Caughran''& Woldson of Spokane. This  particular piece of work was contract-.'.  ed for now because it will  be needed,  regardless of the final route.  "It is uncertain whether the road  will be built to Oroville from Midway  or from Republic. The Midway route  is 45-miles long, with 2h per cent.  grades for 17 miles eastward from Oroville. Then in addition steel must be  laid on the present grade loh miles  long, from Curlew, Wash., to Midway.  The route from Republic via West  Fork and Bonaparte creeks is 65 miles  long, on a 1 per cent, grade, and it is  easy construction. That 'route would  not touch Loomis or any other important points between Republic and  Oroville. Although longer than the  Midway route, it would . be much  cheaper to build.  How will Oroville be Reached ?  "I can't say what route will be  adopted in reaching Oroville. I understand that the railway company is  striving to get some, changes- in its  charter from the Dominion Parliament  tit Ottawa, so as to permit it to change  its original project.  "The section from Oroville north to  the. Boundary line Avill run on both  sides of the river, with one important  bridge.  "As for the final route of the road  into the Similkameen, I understand  that it is being held in abeyance until  a further examination of the resources  ���������principally mineral���������can be made. If  the road follows the Similkameen river  to Princeton, B. C, it would probably-  strike the Fraser river near Hope,  though that is a matter for the future  to disclose."  KINGSTON TO  WORK.  And Work Also to Start on the  Horsefly Very  Shortly.  telling short of spending a lot of money  on them in the shape of development  work. The latter also, under existing  conditions, was almost impossible,  freight costs two cents a pound to  take in and personal travel is excessively costly.  Mr. Pemberton was careful to explain that the present railway construction will, in ti great measure, do away  with fi large number of the disabilities  under which the country is now laboring, and further enable the buyer to  prove at a much less cost, tin* value or  lack of it, of the properties being offered for sale.  Concluding his remarks on the Sim-  ilkameen, Mr. Pemberton said that it  seemed to him to be an ideal fruit  growing country, and had undoubtedly  all the ear marks of being exceedingly  rich in mineral resources.  The Gazette, on inquiring of Mr. F.  M. Wells as to plans of the Kingston  Mining Company to resume work on  the Kingston this summer, was pleased  to learn that a small force is being put  011 at once, find this will be increased a  little biter on. At present there sire  no buildings to accommodate the men  ;uul these will have, to be got ready  before the larger force is put on, but  development work will go on with the  smaller crew while the buildings are  being erected find things put in readiness.  On the Horse-fly,   also  on   which  a,  bond was taken a. few  months ago  work   is   likely to  begin.     Sufficient  money has.been subscribed in the east  to make the first payment on the bond  find to provide working capital   to  do  considerable development work before,  ti second payment is  required.    The  ! active prosecution  of work on  these  two properties  will  be  welcomed  by  everyone, and good results fire looked  for not only in the showing up  of the  properties themselves  but  in   the increased   volume   of   business for the.  ���������' town, which the active development of  several properties would mean.

publishedin last week's Gazette,
making it-imperative that work
be started   at   Cloverdale  and

laid down in the original charter
of the company," while  apparently a wise pixmsion is apt to
create uneasiness in   the  minds
of Similkameen dwellers and is
so   fraught   with   possible  eA'il
consequences  as  to  produce  a
bad taste in the mouth for said
dwellers when they  examine it
more  closely.     Mr.   McPherson
had no business to insert ti.ose
words,   "along   the   route   ;aid

Elliott, implement .'mail, of Kel-  owna,   a   former   Vernonite   was   in  Hediey last week  and  drove  to Princeton.  through  Harry Rodgers who has been attend-  h.;-lhi> State University of Illinois,  a aved in Hediey on Saturday night's  Ki-..,f.       c.      ;  .'. 0. Bate, road supervisor, was in  town on Saturday on his- way back  from Bear Creek where avoi-Ic. has been  siarted on the new i-oad.  The-employment in the streets of  drunks who have not the wherewithal  to pay a fine may be expected very  shortly.  Mr. Wei by has reported the. receipt  of a letter from the Post Office Department which looked towards a possibility wf the third mail being put on.  The Commercial hotel changed own-  ei-- Litis week but not tenants, as Mr.  F.>������er'.s lease does not run out until  November. The purchaser is Mr. E.A.  C. Stndd who bought the property  f'   in W. A. McLean.  "Sughie Campbell was down from  c inceton on Friday last looking as  i.< gh and wiry as a pine knot in spite  ot his sixty nine years. He ad\'ised  the Gazette to poke up the authorities  &'have repairs attended to on the  roads. '   ..  Jack Phibbs is giving up the. idea of  going to the Old Men's Home, which  he says is all right to  die   in   but  no  place to live in. When that right  shoulder of his gets limbered up he is  going to build a mile or two of railway.  Among the little devices turned out  by Hediey inventors is a handy handle  for a liA'e gallon coal oil can, to convert  it into a B. C. Avater bucket. The device is cheap and simple, but if it only  . had made provision for procuring the  can Avithout the necessity of buying a  half-case of coal oil, its utility for printers Avould be increased-a hundred-fold.  .Tack Martin, well-known to Vernon-  ites of a dozen years ago, when he was  connected with the firm of Martin  Bros., hardware men, paid -Hediey a,  visit last. week. Jack was in the rush  to Rossland in the middle nineties, his  firm opening up in that town and securing their share, of the trade when a  few. of the banner properties of-that  town were making Rossland known.  Engineer Bassett nioAred his camp  of  Great  Northern   siu-A7eyors    back,  to;   Keremeos     on     Monday    morn-'  ih'g.   From a-point  a  short  distance  below Keremeos another trial line is  to. be run northward on the southwest  side of the river.    The Great Northern ,  aire going to put in a model line of railroad up'the Similkameen  valley,   the  locating engineers being   required   to  keep within a grade  of six-tenths of  one per cent with, easy curvatures.  J. A. McKelvie, of Vernon, formerly  of-the Vernon News but latterly connected with the staff of the asylum, is  a candidate for the Shrievalty of Yale  miule vacant by the death of 0. .1. Vail.  It is believed that his chances for securing it are very good indeed and he  would certainly make a most efficient  officer. There are said to be numerous  applicants, but so far as the Gazelle  has learned concerning the personcll  of the applicants, the Vernon man is  the pick of tin! bunch.  Messrs ,1.  .J.   Armstrong   and   .las.  lteith drove, up   from   Keremeos   on  Monday.    This was Mr.  Arinstri-ong's  iir'st visit to Medley, his  previous acquaintance with the. Shuilkainecn   being confined   to   the    country round  about Keremeos,    where   his   brother  and he ha.ve a most valuable  property  in;tho   Coulthard   Estate.    The   very  great cost of transportation in the absence of railway  communication'   pi-e-  A'ented the prosecution of  their work  in local improvement to anything like  the extent that would   have   followed  under different   conditions.    Already  the demand for land on the Coulthard  estate has become so great that .$10,-  000 worth of lots were placed in a single Aveek, the greater part of it being  in Cai-berry,  Manitoba..    When  Manitoba people take hold in such earnestness as this Avould indicate,   the   next  feW years may be; counted on to effect  Avondcrful changes about Keremeos.  The Twentieth Century Club intend  holding a Social on Monday evening,  May 29th, to afford the members and  their friends an opportunity of meeting Mr. and Mrs. Docksteader before  they leave for their new home.

Harris, an old-time prospector in the Okanngaiu and Boundary  district and' likewise on the West Fork  of Kettle River where he and his partner, the late George Dore, "made some  of the first locations that were recorded on Beaver Creek, came in on the  Flyer from Phoenix.  .fas. Hislop. P. L. S. arrived in town  on Saturday i night from Edmonton  where he has been engaged in railway  engineering on the G. T. P. Mr Hislop is no stranger in the. Similkameen  having formerly practiced his profession at .Princeton. It was like old  times to meet him again and it brought  up memories .of, the S. P. 8. In all  probability, he will practice in Hediey.  Dr. Whillans' team ran away on  Saturday evening on Ellis Ave. They  found the going so rough that they  were glad to find a stump on which to  hang up and thus save their reputation  and avoid being guyed by the other I  nags for not being able, to go fast  enough to' make a. decent runaway  when they got loose, ft' the streets  are not cleared off here pretty soon the  horses will forget how to run away.  W. J. Sinclair, of Fairview. was in  town hist week. Among the showings  at Hediey which took his fancy, was  that to he seen on, the Sacramento  mineral claim in the open cuts recently  made by W. Haining. Besides a large  mineralized deposit of low grade rock  he spoke of several stringers of rich  ore, some of which seemed to he  widening and giving promise of an  important deposit. ' The convenience  of the location and its adaptability  for economical extraction seemed to  catch his eye. ,  Saturday being pay-day the bankers  in the local branch of the B. N. A., reopened the hank after six o'clock to  enable the men to cash their cheques  or make deposits, and were kept busy  up to nearly ten o'clock; This disposition to accommodate by relaxing  somewhat the. rigid rules observed by  banks in reference to business hours  ttill be appreciated in Hediey, and accounts in no small degree for the success which the Bank of B. N. A. have  always met with in 'pioneer banking  through this province.  D.'Loney left on Saturday ,morning  for Keremeos.    He has'been working')  for some time on an automatic distributor to regulate, the   distribution   of  pulp in cyanide  leaching tanks.   The  Butters distributor Avhieh has been in  general use more on   account of the  fact that it has" had this  field pretty  much to itself than for any satisfactory results attending its   working, is  not feared  by Mr. Loney as   a rival.'  The difficulty of getting out of balance  Avhieh Avas a constant source'of trouble  in the Butters is obviatedin the newer  invention by means of a wheel Avhieh  travels around, on' the edge of the tank.  Patents have been applied for in Canada and the United States.  To Justice Martin it seemed surprising that Hediey should have only two  mails per Aveek from Penticton, and  three stages. He thought that the  postal authorities could scarcely be  conversant Avith the real condition of  affairs and.he. kindly volunteered to  write the postmaster-general on the  subject, being very well acquainted  with Mr Mulock who would know that  in 1 lis case there would be no politics  in the matter. He thought that the  department would then know that  there is a real grievance, and he was  sure that Mr. Mulock would have the  sci vice improved. The people of I led ley  certainly appreciate the kindness  which prompted this service on the  part of his Honor, for it Avould certainly be the strongest- lever which could  be used in their behalf.  A    gcnleman   named    Curry   from  Spokane who came in on the flyer, said  that in his whole trip Hediey was the  first place where he found people who  didn't seem to believe that any railway  will be built this summer.    This might  seem strange, to him,   but allowance  must be made for the fact  that there  are people here who have Avaited over  fifteen years on tlie C. P. R. and that  the evening he arrived, the people had  just heard that the  (T. P. R,  had suc-  ceeeded in having any further consideration of the V. V. & E. bill, at Otta-  Ava put off until the   30th.      All these  things produce attacks   of   the  blues  and not even the assurance of the Gazette that the raihvay is a sure thing,  will serve to dispel the doubts begotten  of hopes long deferred.  The Gazette is printed a day earlier  this week 'owing to the holiday.      .J  Penticton is' to celebrate. Dominion  Day in right .royal style.  , A party of C. P. R. engineers are  said to have, arrived in Penticton! on  Monday night.     '.'.'.     ,.; ''  The teams and men are arriving at  Oro every" day and spreading out a-  long the line between there aiid the  boundary line.  Dr. Mathison is spending a few days  at Princeton this week, but will have  a day or two more for practice in Hediey before returning to the Boundary.  Brown and Gillen are opening a  bottling and soda water business in  Hediey and have purchased about  $-1000.00worth of machinery for the  plant and will commence operations in  a few days. -  When pay-day and Saturday night  and a new married couple all happen j  to come at the same time the condi-  tionsinay be considered, ripe for a bit  of a lark. Early in the evening the  bride-groom potlatehed $10 to the host  at the Hotel Siniilkameeh for the benefit of the boys, but unfortunately overlooked .the advisability of distributing  the largesse around the Ararious hqstel-  ries and the result was a serenade by  an impromptu orchestra that dispensed  ���������with-any''formality hi the shape of a  musical programme or musical director. There were joy-bells and wind-  instruments and reed instruments, hut  it was an old-fashioned kind of reed  instrument that produced the soul-  racking strains ground out on that  home-made hand organ of Pete Held-  stab's.  A   POSTPONEMENT.  The V. V.  IMEN  &  E.   Bill Laid Over Until  May 30th.  When the preamble of the V. V. &  E. bill Avas passed by the Railway  Committee the C. P. .R. interests tried  to have the whole bill referred to a  ���������sub-committee. A compromise Avas  arrived at to refer a particular clause  of the bill which is intended to clear  up any legal doubts that may exist as  to the'validity of the charter. While  the delay is.ATexatious it is s.-id that it  Avill make the position of the friends  of the bill all the stronger after the  committee has reported.  |Thesub-comniittee consists of Messrs  Galliher,|Ross, Fitzpatrick, McDonald  Barker and Easdale.

Last week some of  the residents of  Anarchist Mountain���������the old partof it  ���������that first adopted the name���������detormin-1  ed to prove their right'to   the   use   ofj  same by indulging in a little gun'practice.    The first man to adopt the name  Anarchist Mountain Avas an American  squatter-nanied Heywood   who   married a Klootch   and squatted   on   the  Colville reservation near Sidley.   Another dweller on the   reservation was  Charlie Reinhai-d and bad blood existed between the two for years.    A half-  breed son of Hey wood's took  up the,  feud and a year ago went at Rein hard  with   a   whiffletree,   nearly   finishing'  him.    The two met again last week in  a ci-OAvd Avhere whiskey  flowed rather  freely and gun play began,  Heywood  ���������commencing the shooting and hitting  Reinhard in the side, and bringing him  down.    Another of .'Hey wood's   pals  was about to   finish   the   job   with a  stone until preA'ented.    This.diversion  gave Reinhard time to get out his gun  when lie shot Heywood twice; once, in  the knee and grazing his side with the  other bullet.    Warrants   are said to  ha\re been issued for the parties concerned in the row.
