H. J. JONES. W. M.  G. H. TURNER. Scc't.  Hon. W. T. White, Finance Minister, was able hist week to announce  in his budget speech the largest- surplus in the history of Canada; The  surplus of ordinary revenue over ordinary expenditure was no less than  $55,000,000 as much as the total revenue of but ii few years ago. Thanks  to careful financing combined with  buoyant revenues Canada's credit was  never in such a satisfactory position  as at the present time. The capital  expenditure w,as all paid out of revenue, the total amount being $'53,000,000  leaving no less than $23,000,000 which  was applied to reducing the national  debt, which during the year was  brought down, from $339,000,000 to  $310,000,000.  LOANS   PAID  OFF  Two loans which matured during  tho past year were also paid out of  revenue so that the Finance Minister  did not have to float a solitary loan  during the past year. Another' loan  of ������1,700,000 falls due this fall and it  too will be paid by Mr. White out of  revenue.  THAT JOKER  CLAUSE  Then during the year there'was purchased some $13,000,000 worth of G.  T; P. bonds. This was done through  the legislation passed this year. By  the 'joker"inserted by the Laurier  Government in the G. T. P. contract  the Government was compelled to implement the difference between ��������� the  selling price of the bonds and par. Mr.  ..White has saved much of this difference by purchasing the bonds.  OUTLOOK IS  BRIGHT .  Altogether the Canadian financial  situation was. never better and the  outlook for the corning year is for the  best twelve months in the history bf  the Dominion.  "Every man to his trade"and."Never  play a   man at'his  own game" are old  expressions   the rcrnth  of which  was  equally demonstrated at the two .swap  matches played between the cricketers  and.the  baseballers;   The  match was  a baseball  game ��������� this time and  while  the cricketers had the short end of the  argument on a score of 20 to S they  surprised themselves at their prowess  as baseballers.     Of course they do not  flatter themselves that their opponents  had   their best team'on, nor yet  do  they claim  that the  baseballers could  not ha.ve beaten them worse than they  did,   but they demonstrated  the fact  that  when it conies  to hitting a ball  with a   bat they do  not require a four  inch . wide   bat   to ' make connection.  The department of the game in whicti  they were  most behind was in throwing to the bases, arid the ball was also  a less familiar pellet  to the feel than  the hard unresisting cricket ball.    The  game  of baseball is  not. as stable as  cricket and its   rules have been changing so much  in late years  that men  who played it twenty years ago or less  and  were familiar  with   the  rules at  that  time,   are   so   much at sen that  they   scarcely   know   it   now,   .while  cricket is  practically the same  as it  was when our-grandfathers played it.

At Kaslo the water surrounded about  seventy-five buildings and these were  blown into the lake when the cyclone  of Sunday, June 3rd blew through  Kootenay. Later in the summer of  1894 it did nob rain for six weeks, and  the forest fires burned several towns  in the Slocan.���������Greenwood Ledge.   ���������  METEOROLOGICAL.  P. W.

The town had practically gone  en- masse  to the  celebration in Keremeos and every vehicle available was  pressed into the service. A good rnanymore would have gone had there been  suitable  train service,  and in the absence of such  they felt that they were  pursuing a course\.iil*)re conducive to  their own personal coin fort by staying  at home.     All were  interested in the  outcome of the  baseball at Keremeos  but their curiosiCy c-oijild not be gratified for the telephone service was non*  est for the day aradvn'othiiig could be  learned  of what  was going oh.    Not  until some  of those who had gone.began to return later in the evening was  the  result  known  and  then all  that  could  be learned  was"' that Penticton  had carried off the prize.    Latei-when  fuller details came to' hand there was  considerable quiet indignation at the  treatment received,   arid censure was  liberally handed out and variously distributed.    Hediey having to begin the  game  three  players, short looked decidedly like rubbing--it in,  buc nevertheless  there was  rri.uch oi the blame  coming to both bhe.players themselves  and to  the management of the team,  which  took  altogether   too much for  granted and  trusted to  chance rather  than to definite pre-arrnngeinent. The  reason given by the players who failed  to   turn  up when  required was  that  they had   been told  that  they would  not have to play  until the afternoon.  It is true that they had no business to  be governed   by mere   hearsay from  parties  who  may not have had any  official connection with the sports, and  it is equally true that they should not  have had to take information from unauthorized   outsiders  but should have  been  supplied   with the  necessary information from the proper source and  that source  is the management of the  team.     If there is no cohesion nor definite  understanding'"as to   where the  different members are to be and what  they are to do,  there is  nothing.    A  team  without a team  spirit and team  discipline is no team at all.  Further delay i,n the construction of  the Kettle- Valle.v Railway, through  the Coquihalln River Valley is unavoidable. The last survey made by  C.J. Seymour, was pi actically completed before the conclusion of the  agreement between the Kettle Valley  and V. V. & E. companies. As an indirect consequence of that agreement  a re-survey has been ordered by A.  McCnlloch, chief engineer, of 11 miles  of the road from Hope east. The work  is beginning at once under G. C.  Clough. Camp, will be pitched at the  upper end of the section, 11 miles from  Hope.  It will be remembered that by the  agreement made, the K.V.R. company  is to utiild and operate 57 miles of road  from Hope to Otter Summit. At the  last-named point connections will be  made with the V. V. & 15, line from  Princeton by way of Tulameen. The  Kettle Valley line from Merritt westward to the summit is already nearly  built.  Tt is at the Hope end of the line that  a problem is presented. The grade  must be high enough to .join on to the  relocated G. P. R. main line by- the  bridge across the Fraser-, and must  also a/Ford the V. V. & E. coinpanj- an  easy connection with the Canadian  Northern tracks in or near Hope.  These objects, it is expected, may both  be attained by relocating the line  through the canyon of the Ooquilialla.  How long the delay will be can hardly be stated in advance. A survey of  eleven miles is not in itself a formidable undertaking hut this survey may  prove so. Three times the Coquthalla  valley has been surveyed by railway  engineers and the line through the  canyon has been practically^ the same  each time. It is difficult to find a  feasible alternative .route line and yet  that is what is now sought.  Naturally a change in the line.of the  railway as it enters Hope 'may'affect  the approach to the bridge bub the  change, if any, will probably be very  slight.  The bridge crew is continuing the  sinking of test holes. It was probably  never contemplated that the building  of piers would begin before, the late  autumn of the present year.'  Pending the re-survey of the line  there can be no call for tenders for  construction.  LOCAL NEWS  REPATRIATION WORK  Many Canadians Leaving New England  Towns For Canadian West  Boston, Mass., May 15.��������� Whittins-  ville, a prosperous town thirty miles  west of this city, is being rapidly deserted. In two days three hundred  French Canadians, former residents of  the province of Quebec, have left for  Edmonton, Alta. Later this summer  another contingent will leave. Many  are giving up paying positions in the  mills in towns near Whittinsville.  Families are being broken up in many  cases, tind the -station presents asorry  sight.  The emigration to Canada from this  anil other New England towns is becoming alarming to business people,  and an effort will be made to induce  the residents to stop here. Tho'Canadian government is working actively  through agents all over New England  to induce the Canadian born people  to return to their native country.

He did not get here in time  to see his father before he left, but  had the good forrune to meet him in  Oroville on Monday evening. He was  accompanied by a college unite, Mr.  R. R. Harper, and both will spend the  summer with the diamond drill crew  prospecting the canyons of Twenty-  Mile.  The isolation tent, erected to the  south of the hospital will make comfortable quarters for many patients  who may prefer it during bhe summer  to the regular ward in the hospital itself. A fly over the tent so as to make  an air space will prevent it from becoming to hot.  Game warden Schissler was in town  last week and is disposing of gun licences to all who may require them.  Very few are being taken out thus far  and in all probability the greater number will defer purchasing until the  open season has about seb in.  While up the river last week Chief  Constable Simpson was on hand for a  whiskey round up. A shipment of a"  couple of dozen bottles was made to a  Swede who had some station work under way. The liquor was confiscated  and destroyed and Charley Henderson  of Tulameen who sold the liquor was  lined $50 for violation of the Liquor  Licence Act in selling a, larger quantity ab a single vending than the law  permitted.  Many old residents of Camp McKinney and the eastern part of the Similkameen riding will regret to hear of  the death of Mrs. J. P. Flood which  occurred at Grand Forks about the  middle of the month. Deceased resided in McKinney for a. year or two  about 1S99 and 1900 and afterwards resided for ten years or more in Greenwood from which she moved with her  hushand to Grand Forks.  Before his departure for- Denver Mr.  Beam saw the cam p." fairlv established  for prospect work on the. ."new groups  they have under, bpnd a"nd the drills  actually at,work. It'was a hard job  to get everything in readiness and-  power and water lines laid over so  great a distance and over such rough  rocky country down into those canyons in which much of the dianiong  drilling will be done. Three drills will  be kept constantly at work and a- force  of about 25 mcu'will be employed in  carrying on the work.  A. Winkler has been making some  important improvements to the Grand  Union premises, and the betterment  is appreciated by his-guosts a.nd the  general public. . Two large cess-pools  have been put in���������one to accommodate  the garbage and wash water from the  kitchen . anil the other for... the new  closets lie has put in. Tlie new closets  accommodate both the ground and upstair floors and are altogether up-to-  date. He is also putting in a. large  ceilar to the north of the hotel. The  cellar is 20x14 and 7 feet deep and  when it is completed he will erect over  it an addition to the pi e.sent premises  24x28 and one storey, and to make  room for it he will tear out some of  the shacks that are now occupying  some of the ground. These changes  all denote enterprise and a desire to  keep abreast of the times.  ' The moving pictures on Friday night  last brought out a fairly good house  and the lnachiif'e reproduced them in.  good shape. "'The pictures had little, if.  any of- the. shaking- flickering effect���������'���������'���������.  that is so often sftsen in machines that  are not working right. The show  consisted of five films, of which two  described the slaughter of the United  States 4th cavalry by the Apaches and  these were very plain and realistic.  Saturday, evening's perfornuuice was  not so well patronized and in all probability the number .that were out of  town-for the holiday accounted forth is. A change of films will be along  for the shows tomorrow night and  Saturday. It is understood that these  shows may be expected every week'  during the summer and mostly on  these nights although possibly it maybe necessary to change the night occasionally to steer clear of other engagements for the hull.  At the close of  the Anglican service  in Fraternity hall   on Sunday evening  last a vestry  meeting was held for organization   purposes  and   to  consider  ways  and means  for carrying  on the  services.    The former church wardens  were  R. S.   Collins  and   AV. C.   Lyall  and. as the  latter did not  wish   to be-  re-appointed, C. P. Dalton was elected  people's warden in bis place   while the  pastor,   Rev.  Herbert  Mayers,   re-appointed   R, S.   Collins as pastor's warden.     The sidesmen  appointed   were  H. D. Barnes and R.' AV. James.     The  pastor explained  to the  meeting   the  position   of the  church   in the   valley  and  stated  that united  action  would  be  required   to   maintain  regular services in the several stations of Princeton, Hediey, Coalition t. Tulameen and  Five Mile, and read- a memorial to the  Bishop   which   bad   been   drawn   up  showing the population  or estimated  population  of these   different   points  and   the amounts  which  it was  proposed   to  assess  each   of them.    The  amount alloted.to Hediey being in excess  of the  pro rata allotment on the  basis  of population  as stated in   the  memorial the Hediey wardens did not  feel  inclined to take  upon themselves  the responsibility of signing the memorial and committing the congregation  bo the expenditure without obtaining  an expression from others in the congregation.  There were others present,.  however,  who thought that it could  be undertaken and to that end it was  decided to make a trial.  The Duchess of Connaught continues,  to improve in health.

Doctrinally these bodies are practically  the same  but in the  matter of  church   polity  was  to  be   found: the  greatest obstacle   towards accomplishment of  the desired end.     But now it  is   believed   that the  agitation   of tlie  question a year ago has borne its fruit  and  the more  the. people have looked  into the matter-bhe broader their ideas  have  become,   until at last many who  a year-ago  were averse to any kind of  church  government   or .management  that  was in  any  way  different from  their own,  are prepared at last to see  some    merit   in   others.      Methodists  ever since the days  of John AVesley  have  clung  tenaciously to   the itinerancy,   but only  last week   we find the  Methodist   conference   which   is   the  highest court   of   Methodism   in   the  province,   violating  the principle  and  practice   by. sanctioning    the Methodists of Kitsilano in retaining a pastor  who had completed bhe term of itinerancy.    And   while  this is  going on in  Methodist circles it has been seen that  presbyteries   in   several   [(arts of  Ontario are   up in rebellion against retention  any   longer of  the   humiliating  practice  of candidacy  and preaching  for calls in the choice of a new pastor,  and they   call for some  saner method  or basis of appointment more like that  employed in other churches.   On small  mission   fields of  tlie west the burden  of maintaining or attempting to maintain   an   exhibition   sample   of  every  stripe of  religious denominationalism  that has  served in the past to kick up  strife in   communities, has been found  unbearable    and   has   done   more   to  paralyze  the efforts of   the protestant  body than anything ejse.    People who  are so bigoted and will refuse to apply  the same  amount of   common  sense-  that they are  expected   to use in the  conduct  of their own   business should  be made to pay the whack themselves,*  and then they will get a better idea of  the  senseless  waste  now  entailed  in  the   useless multiplication  of mission  fields by different denominations.  highway over  parts   of   the   province  that the Provincial Government   have  never felt justified   in   tackling  thein-  seves,   as  the  cost  would   be greater  than any local interests   to  be  served  would warrant' ; and yet  it  is  a  rbncl  that  from   a national   point of   view  should lie built, and the '.building  of it  is ii duty which.Canada  owes  to '-'..herself.    Then Ihi-re   is   the   ill-concealed  hostility of Hon.

Oroville were soon read}7 and on  the field but quite' along delay, was  caused   by  some of  the   Hediey   boys  who came  down the night before not  being  present,  however, they started  one hour behind schedule.    A very exciting   game   resulted   with   Oroville  the winners by two runs.    Imme'diate-  ly after the game  the trap shooting  took   place which  was very  close and  exciting.     After about an hour interval for lunch the band which hud been  playing  some lively airs in   the  forenoon    started    again    with    renewed  vigor.     The  cowboy   turnstake   race  was very  exciting, there  were six entries, three running at a time.     33. M.  Crooker and    C.   Shuttleworth   were  winners  of their sets.    The  final was  won     by   C.  Shuttleworth,    who   although  did not   come   in   first,   was  awarded  the prize as Crooker turned  the wrong stake on the last lap. Much  discussion   took  place  over   the   outcome which  resulted in ;>. match race  being  called   this   was  extremely exciting, both contestants felt certain of  victory.     Both got away  to a good  start,   nevertheless,   Crooker with his  little pacing blue came in ahead.    The  children's  races came  next and these  caused no little excitement.    The hundred  yard dash   which was  anxiously  watched by a large crowd was won by  Fred  Brouiilette  with   T.   Morris  second.    Next on the  list was   the high  .jump    C.   Shuttleworth    taking    the  honors.     Incitement ran high among  the   baseball   fans when   Oroville  and  Penticton  got on the diamond and although  Penticton  won a good  game  much credit is due Oroville for putting  up such   a good  tight   after   having  much of their energy taken away with  their game with  Hediey.    The  summary of the games will be found later.  The lacrosse game ended in a. victory  for Princeton   by four goals   to  two.  Keremeos  who were sadly in  need of  training and playing eleven   men   to  their    opponents   twelve   for   nearly  three  quarters put up a good   fight.  J. A. Brown played splendidly in goal  for the  home team  and if it had  not  been  for his  timely saves  the   score  would have been vastly different.     In  the evening a wrestling match took  place  at the centre  between Clarence  Eckland  and   three local   men.     Eck-  land  guaranteeing  to throw any five  men in the district, in one hour.    John  Jones,   Sid Edwards  and  Jack Vader  each  took a hand  and did very well  staying  with the champion for about  ten minutes each before their shoulders were put to the mat.     Eckland's  partner  was  the   last  to   wrestle, he  staying twenty minutes-this ending in  a   draw   and   incidently   ending   the  most successful celebration ever held  at Keremeos-   On  behalf of the com  mittees in charge we extend our  heartiest thanks to our many visitors  for the splendid turnout and the great  pleasure they gave in having them  with us.

The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of Avork.
