Like In-  PENTICTON,      -  B. C.  On Saturday night last at 10;30 p.m.  the eastbourid train on the G. N. R,  was held up at Colbert by four masked bandits who got on the engine and  compelled engineer and fireman to  obey orders.  The engine and mail car were cut  oil! the train and run ahead a quarter  of a mile and halted. Then .the engineer fireman and mail clerk were compelled to get off when the bandits ran  the engine and car' ahead for some  distance. t  In about half an hour the engine  came back with its throttle open anil  no one on board and bumped into the"  train injuring about a dozen passengers.  The Great Northern Railway have  offered $40,000 reward or ,$10,000 per  head. The government supplement  this with another $1,000 per head.  A train robber named Charles Mc:  Donald is believed to.be leader of the  gang.  The post office inspector places the  booty at less than $100, which seems  improbable.  GOLDEN ZONE ABROAD  The Fame of This  Promising. Property  Beginning to Interest Outsiders  DOMINION CASE UPHELD  Judgment is Against Provincial Govern-  Ment in Burrard Water Power  Company's Record  Ottawa, May J I.���������Mr. Justice Cas-  sells today delivered judgement in the  case of the  attorney general of the  Dominion  of Canada v. the Burrard  Powercornpany, and the attorney general of British Columbia. By the judgment the contention of the dominion  of Canada that.the waters in question,  the Lillooet river and the Lillooet lake  are wholly within  the railway belt, is  sustained and as a consequence  the  ownership   by   the   dominion   would  carry with  it the bed of the lake and  the rivers and of waters,  in any event  where it is not tidal.   This renders the  British Columbia  Water Clauses act  inoperative as  against the dominion  in  respect of the locus in  quo.    The  Burrard   Power   company   have   no  rights under such legislation as against  the dominion. The dominion is further  held to be entitled   to a declaration  that the company's record  is invalid,  interfering with navigation,  and because   it   is   not   authorized  by   the  British Columbia Water Clauses Consolidation act.  (Spokane Chronicle)  J. D. Brass, representing/the Golden  Zone Mining company, Ltd., is in tlie  city from the mining camp of Hediey,  B. C. He reports the striking of some  good ore in the Golden Zone and "Kingston gold and copper. The Golden  Zone group, about 12 miles from Hediey, consists of four claims, the Golden  Zone, Irish Boy, B. C.. and the Silver  Bell.  The shaft -on the Golden Zone is'  now .down 100 feet, from which.three  assays gave returns of $S2.G8, $-15.47  and $20.67Jn gold and $1.10 in silver.  It is possible to trace the surface crop-  pings for- 2000 feet.  This property has three distinct  ledges from 75 to 100 feet apart and it-  is the intention of the management to,  crossicut these at a depth of 200 feet.  A five-stamp mill has been installed  and arrangements have been made for  five more stamps. *  The property of the Kingston Gold  and Copper Mining company is show-  ing.up well. Twelve men have been  at work on this property all winter.  The Pollock- mines are also looking  fine. They "have three tunnels, all of  which are in from three to ten feet of  good ore.  "We have a great camp up there,"  says Mr. Brass, "and in a short time  investors will be looking us up. There  is a fine field for investment, as the  camp'is practically new."

Richard McBride descriptive of a portrait appearing in its columns.  "The Hon.   Richard   McBride,   the  subject of the portrait on this page by  our specal artist, Mr. R. G. Matthews,  is  the   Premier of British  Columbia  and holds also the portfolio 'of Minister of Mines..   Embarking early on a  political career,   he entered the Legislature as the member for Dewdney in  1S98, at  the age of eight-and-twerrty,  and rapidly made his mark,   being reelected for  the  same  constituency in  1900 and again   in  1903.     When  the  Hon.   Jaines  Dunsmiiir  became Premier   on   the   defeat   of   the   Martin  Ministry in the  former year,   Mr. McBride   was    appointed    Minister    of  Mines, but resigned shortly afterwards  When the Prior Ministry  went out of  office, in .Tune,   1903,   the Lieutenant-  Governor called  on  Mr.  McBride  to  form a Government, and, to the great  advantage of British Columbia, he has  been  Premier of   the   province   ever  since.  Seattle, Wash., May 17.���������Visitors at  the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition,  which opens at Seattle June 1st and  closes October 16th,, will lie. able to  dine to their satisfaction at the city's  leading cafes and restaurants .at  normal prices. To leave no doubt as  to the working out of this commendable spirit on the part of Seattle's  caterers, they recently met and voted  as a, body an agreement binding all  restaurant, cafe, grill and hotel men  to maintain the present prices throughout the exposition time, and no member of the organization to which the  caterers belong will be allowed to take  advantage of the opportunity to reap  additional profits as has been done,  despite protests, in previous exposition cities.  The action was taken after I. A.  Nadeau, Director General of the A.-  Y.-P. had addressed the assembled  restaurant men, showing them how  the increased crowds that would follow  reasonable charges would not only add  to the credit of the city and the success of the exposition, but would mean  increase in business.  To the hired help must be given  much of the credit for the continuance  of low prices. Waiters, cooks and  helpers of all kinds have entered into  an agreement that the present scale of  wages shall not he tampered with,  during the Fair.  Seattle will not only have a remarkable exposition, but will be able to accommodate the influx of visitors in a  way that will be a cause for lasting  satisfaction. Hotels are many and  reasonable and with fixing of normal  charges at the eating houses, from the  most aristocratic to humble lunch  counter, tourists may have no fear of  not finding accommodations.  (Victoria Colonist)  ' Mr. '.T.  A.  D.  McCurdy is soon  to  leave New York for England  to take  part .in   the competition  for aviation  prizes.    About a week ago he addressed agroup of aeronauts and inventors  in New York,'and a despatch from that  city to the Montreal Star says that,he  made some interesting-,disclosures  in  regard to human flight. .The despatch  says that he is very   reticent and deliberate in his statements,   making no  assertions which cannot be verified bv  the records of the Aerial  Experiment  Association.    Not very much has been  made public of the doings of these experimenters under the guidance of Dr.  Alexander Graham  Bell;  and it  was  therefore  very   much of a surprise to  his audience to   be  told  by Mr.   McCurdy  that-he hid   made  three hundred flights of. nine .miles each> with  the Silver Dark.   He says he used to  get up early in the morning and fly  all day.   Often  the  temperature  was  at zero,  and on more   than one occasion he had  to descend on  account of  the cold.    The course was over the ice  at Baddeek,  and there  is little doubt  that the  ice  plain  of the  frozen bay  presented    - exceptionally     favorable  facilities  for   his experiments.     The  despatch says  that,, according  to the  figures furnished,  Mr.  McCurdy  has  flown over three thousand  miles, and  therefore holds the world's "record for  aerial   mileage  in   the aggregate,  although  not of course for the longest  single flight.  It is understood, that the young  aviator is going to England'on an invitation from the British government  and that the Dominion government is  also encouraging him in his experimenting. ,The people of Canada will  all be glad to hear of his continued  success.

May 11. | It was stated by  Sir Edward Clouston, vice-president  and general manager of the Bank of  Montreal, on his return from Great  Britain, that during the coming summer a- number of British capitalists  will visit the Dominion and make a  tour of the country in order to see  its resources for themselves, so as to  gauge its value as a field for investment.  The new British budget, which is  particularly heavy on the British investing class, will, in Sir Edward's  opinion, drive a larger amount of British capital than ever  to this country.

In addition to Mercury's temple in  Rome, an altar was raised to him over  a well near1 the Porta Capena, and  here the merchants repaired on the  festival of the god (May 25) to sprinkle  their goods with the waters of the  well, that they might be purified and  yield a big profit. This was the origin  of watering stocks, and even to this  time the 25th of May is a holiday in  Wall street and the New Jersey Legislature.  Continued on Pago Throe.  The so-called Regina Lacrosse team  which-has come west for the Minto  Cup is made up as follows : Stevenson,  Munvo, Gorniiin, Shea. Allan, Murton,  Warwick, Trayner, Clarke, McGregor  McDougall," Lalonde, Ross, McLean  and Davidson. The line up for the  first game will not be civen out until  the morning of the game. Regina has  named Joe Lnlly, of Cornwall, for  referee and will not agree to the three  men named by Westminster.  Referring to the personnel of the invaders the Columbian sayt*:  The. make-up of   the    team    from  Regina,   isdecidedly interesting, inasmuch as it gives a line on the make-up  of the prairie cup  chasers.     It dopes  out that the famous Regina team will  have two, and possibly less,  Regina  men on its strength.     New Westminster has the Minto cup,   and the crack  teams  of the east could not lift it individually, so they have  gathered together a team, representative  of the  best in the east and the  middle west,  around two men  of the Saskatchewan  capital, the two serving as an excuse  for the  use of the  name of that city,  and the right to challenge.   Allan and  Shea,   were obtained from the Ottawa  Capitals; Bun Clark, Murton and Doc.  Davidson played for the Tecumsehs;  Warwick figured on the Toronto team,  and  Lalo'iide is a ���������Cornwall man.    All  good players, too.     Winnipeg sends  one man and Souris one ;  the remainder from Regina, two.  The first seven of these easterners  look good to Manager Welsh. He has,  in  'common   with  many   other local  men,   seen  them in  action,   and  the  champions   have   met   the   most   of  tlieih. on" the field.    -They are  good  players   individually,   but   lose   their  strength  by playingin a mixed team,  with   which  they   have   not worked  sufficiently  to play in harmony.    Under such conditions they cannot,   be-:  lieves Mr. Welsh,  stand even as much  show as the  Capitals  of Ottawa last  year, or the Teciuuseh* t'\o years ago.  And to make the Minto cup still more  secure   in   its resting   place   at   the  Royal. City, the world's champions are,  if possible,  in better shape  than they  have ever been.    Thov   are   iust as  good players,  are in  better condition,  and in addition, they have  that confidence   which makes  for a winning  team,  gained from   the  experience of  last summer,  and the knowledge that  they have done, and  can again, beat  the   best teams of the world.     The  Minto cup will not leave New Westminster for a while yet.  WANT -TOE  LALLV AS REFEREE.  For   referee   the   Regina,   Capitals-  want Joe Lnlly.'   Well,   that will suit  New Westminster,  .so long as they do-  not- have to foot the bill.     Shown the-  despatch,   Manager  Welsh  said   that  the club   would probably   agree.    Mr.  Lally is a  good  referee  and  only the-  matters of principle  and expenses are  against his coming.    When playing in  the east the local  men   have'always  accepted   eastern   referees,   and  considering  that there are plenty of good  men  out  here,  they do not'consider  that  it is   right to  incur the  expense  of   bringing an   eastern   man  t<> the  coast.     All    the  Minto   cup   holders  want is a fair, sqiuire de.'ii, and tn win  the games on   their merits."  CANADA'S   POLITICAL   STATUS.  D.   D.   Mann   Tells   Saturday  Evening  Post   How   Canada   Fares in  Present Arrangement.  D. D. Mann, in a contribution to the  Saturday Evening Post, very clearly  defines Canada's political standing. He  says: "The Empire is more than England. There is a reason to suppose it is  bigger than the United States. It is  a free confederation of inter-dependent  states, each of which' has as much  liberty to do as its pleases as.any State  of the Union. Tn that free confederation, Canada has a. place that grows  more important every year. She has  an unique identity in the world, which  if she becomes four or five or six States.  in the Union, she. could not enjoy."

When a serious charge was  made against one of McBride's  ministers, he appointed a prominent jurist who was politically  opposed to him to investigate  the charge and gave him the  widest possible scope. Such a  course on his part must meet  the approval of all fair-minded  citizens and silence the criticisms of prejudiced opponents.  Sir Wilfrid's actions in the  various instances which might  be enumerated both in this and  former sessions, afford a very  painful contrast.  which took place about fifty or  sixty years  ahead  of its  time.  This, however, may  be an altogether  erroneous  view to take  or' i t,  an d n o o n e  can say wh at  has  been the sum  of good that  has been wrought to the nation  by the  planting of  that colony  in   those   early  days  or  what  evils  it was  the means of preventing.     One thing is certain,  and  that  is   that   those  early  colonists and their descendants  have proven the salt of at least  that portion of the earth. Their  presence at the time of the first  Riel rebellion  was  most fortunate    and    for    the    iufluence  which thev exerted in that try-  ing  time  Canada owes them a  debt    of    gratitude    that   can  never be fully repaid.  It is true  there   were   other   events   occurring  in Canada  in the year  1812  that  altogether  obscured  at that  time so  common -place  an event as the'landing of those  early settlers  on  the  sh'oie of  Hudson Bay and the founding  of the  colony,  so  that at this  interval  the - centenary of  the  one   may   be  observed   in   the  other.    By the year 1912 no less  than four transcontinental railways  should  be  able  to  pour  sight-seers into   Winnipeg, and  the    large    settlement   of   the  western     prairies     from     the  United States should create sufficient interest  to make the affair   international  in   its scope.

SOME BASEBALL POETRY  After surviving the spring poetry  season the Gazette has been stricken  with an epidemic of baseball rhyme.  The rival poets appear to have been  plagiarizing from the same fount. If  their play is as ragged as the poetry, it-  should be a snap for the other fellows.  Better leave poetizing to the laureates  and "play ball."  Commercial relations within the  British empire was the subject of  much discussion at a special general  meeting of the .Montreal board of  trade lately. The meeting was called  for the purpose of adopting resolutions  for submission by the local board at  the seventh congress of chambers of  commerce of the empire, to be held at  Sydney, Australia, in September of  this year.  .Mr. Robert Mciglren, president of  the- Lake of the Woods Milling com-'  pany, moved a resolution recommending that on imports and exports of  produce and merchandise', component  parts-of British empire should protect  -themselves.' against the producers- of  foreign countries; that the govern-  nieiits of Great .'Britian and the  colonies should grant to one another a  substantial preference in duties, and  that,' in so far as their respective  revenues will permit, the principle of  free trade.-..., within the empire' shall'  preva.il.

(BritislrCalfornian)  Great Britain may now expect to  have another market closed, to-her  goods, as the new United States tariff  will arrange for free trade between  this country and the Philippines, with  restrictions upon foreign importations:  and this, in spite of the assurances  when we took over the Philippines  from Spain that.no Preferential tariffs  would be imposed. But Britain's importations into the islands, amounting  to the value of $7,500,000 annually,  show a tendency to increase, and this  Uncle Sam cannot stand. He proposes  to kill it, as lie killed British shipping  in those waters. We are not blaming  Uncle Sam for looking out for number  one in his own territory, but we  marvel that the mother country hesitates to simply protect her trade.

Manery,   of the Lower Similkameen, was in town on  Tuesday.  Rev. Father Conan,    of Kamloops,  was in Hediey this week  visiting   his  parishioners.  The Steamer Okanagan has resumed  her daily trips between Penticton and  Okanagan Landing.  F. F. Ketchum, who was in Greenwood hist week reports business .good  on the West Fork.

The dance on Thursday night last in  Fraternity Hall was fairly well attended and a good time is reported. Another will be given bn Friday evening  21st, at which' Prof. Shearer will furnish the music.  Ld, the 15th of May has come and  .gone and no track-layer has been seen  any where between here and Kcre-  meo.s. Lack of bridge timber is said  to have been the cause of delay for  the past month.  AV. H. T. Gillian, barrister of Penticton was in town last week on professional business. He received congratulations from his many friends  in Hediey on his marriage which took  place last month in England.  Mr. J. D. Brass returned on Saturday last. His pilgrimage in quest of  building material took him as far  afield as Spokane. He expects to begin work on the Keremeos school  building in the course of a few days.  The road to the lock-up is receiving  a little attention.. The shape it was  in before was hardly what a public  road leading to a government building  was expected to be. The improvement therefore is not made before it  was needed.  The snowfall for the season is still  23 inches shy of what it was last year,  n There can be only a few weeks left  now in which to make this up, for  summer heat should be along now  pretty soon. Last week there was ten  inches snowfall.  Mr-, and Mrs. Sampson were down  from the Nickel Plate for a short time  on Wednesday. They have had a cold  spring up there and expected something warmer down here, but the  weather didn't happen to be in one of  its warm moods just then.  The Princeton stage on Friday morning last had for passengers Dr. C. A.  Jackson, dentist, and W. T. Jackson  of the Province. Tt wasn't a case of  "too much Johnson" this time, but a  half dozen more might have been "too  much Jackson" for the stage.  R. T. Lowery of the Greenwood  Ledge is rusticating for a month in  the Kootenays. His last injunction  to the sub-editorwas "Don't roast anyone." Evidently Jim took this in  about the same way as the Irish huskies to whom the priest said, "Don't  duck him in the horse-pond, boys."  While no danger from floods is anticipated in this vicinity, there is a  great probability that travel between  here and the coast will be seriously impeded. Here we are in the last half of  May and the bulk of last winter's  snow still in the hills to come down  with tremendous force with the first  hot spell.  Chief Engineer Kennedy went up  the river on Thursday last and return-  on Monday evening. This time he  went farther than Princeton, going  up into the snow country beyond  Otter Flat. The snow has done very  little melting up there yet, and while  the. streams have risen too high to  permit of fording, they are yet far  from being in flood. Ed. Kennedy  started for Hope on Tuesday in which  vicinity they each have pre-emptions.  J. J. Marks '-was"down from the'  Golden.Zone' on Monday. An ore  pocket has been completed on top and  work of-cutting the 'station at the  Golden Zone is in progress.  ��������� W. T. Jackson representative of the  Vancouver Daily Province was in  town last week in the interests of the  paper.*- His attention was drawn to  the fact that coast papers were so late  in getting here, it was not uncommon  to find Toronto daily papers reaching  Hediey bearing even date with those  from -���������.Vancouver. Mr. Jackson believed that a change in the G. N. R.  time table which was contemplated  would save 24 hours. As it is the  Vancouver train on the G. N. R.  reaches Everett an hour too late to  catch the east-bound mail train which  makes the necessary connection at  Spokane for points on the V. V. & E.  With a change that would make up  that hour the coast papers would  come nearer meeting the wants of  readers in the Similkameen.  c  BORN  McEACHERN.���������In Hediey, on May Kith, to  Mr. and Mrs. G. McEachcrn, a daughter, still  born, ...  PRINCETON MASONS  ORGANIZING.  The Freemasons in Princeton have  grown in numbers to such extent that  they are taking steps to organize a  lodge. The necessary petition has been  forwarded to the Grand Lodge of  British Columbia and on Friday evening last, Hediey Lodge helped oh the  good work by complying with certain  requirements of the constitution looking to that end. The three principal  officers of the new lodge attended the  last regular meeting of Hediey Lodge.  They were: F. Pyman, AV. M., Dr.  D.B. Lazier, S.W.,and C.'A. Saunders,  J. AV.  The D. D. G. M. expects to hear  favorably from Grand Lodge in a few  days by receipt of the dispensation,  when" an early date for instituting will  be arranged so as to get going before  end of the present term which is now  Hearing its close. c  ATHERTON vs. WINE  The case of Atherton vs. Wine was  heard last week at Keremeos before  government agent J. R. Brown, of  Fairview.  The defendant in the case followed  the procedure of the AVater Clauses  Consolidated act and obtained his  water right in the regular way without opposition from the Plaintiff. In  only one respect did he fail to comply  with the requirements of the act and  that was in not putting up security  with the commissioner for any damage  that he might do in putting in his  ditch. The only action which the  plaintiff: had against the defendent  was one of trespass in going on to  plaintiff's land without furnishing  security as above and obtaining right  to go on the land from the commissioner.  The plaintiff first entered suit in the  county court for $999 damages, but  withdrew it and took it before J. R.  Brown to be decided.  ������  The commissioner, required defendant to furnish a bond of $150 for any  damage which might be done and  leaving it open for him to sue in the  county court for any damages which  might be done.  GIVE   US   ANOTHER DATE.  Now that May 15th is past, it is up  to somebody to give us another date  for the commencement of track-laying. It is always advisable to have  something to look forward to, you  know. Barring all last year's dates,  we have had this year, March 1st,  March 15th, April 1st and May 15th.  Now somebody suggests "after high  water," but that's too indefinite. If  they would only tell us frankly that  "it will be a dam cold day when they  begin" we could then, like the Swede  "tank that will be in Yanuary."

Until the 20th, May will be under  the zodiacal sign of Taurus the Bull,  Mr.-Roosevelt will bv this time have  reached the Albertine Basin, and the  influence of Taurus' will cause him to  do a good deal of roaring. The lions  and other fairly good roarers will  compete with him a while, but after  they have heard him roar two or three  times they will bust up a good deal of  brush getting on the other side of the  Congo.  People bom under Taurus have very  intricate minds, and they understand  the tariff debate. They are unerring  in love, and generally marry their  affinities at the outset. There is natural attractions between persons born  under opposite signs of the zodiac, and  a Taurus man usually marries a  Scorpio women, or that is, being  born in May, he marries a woman  born in October. This is said to be a  natural match, or one in which the  chance of divorce is reduced to the  minimum.

A powerful magnet to draw British  Dreadnoughts into, shallow water on  the coast of Germany and there pound  them to pieces with shore artillery is  the latest hare brained idea of a German subject of the Kaiser.
