I expect to have  our own railway contractors at work  ���������early this summer in the Hope Mountains'". ���������  Mr. Hill's tour of. tho Northwest  whs undertaken mainly'to familiarize,  Mr. Gniy with the' system and the  ���������tributary country. Leaving the branch  line north of Spokane the visitors'  motored over the San Poil road to Republic, Wash., and thence to Pentic-.  ticton, Keremeos, Hediey and Princeton, and on from the Similkameen  valley to Merritt. The remainder of  the distance to Vancouver was made  over the C.P.R., giving them a chance  to inspect the grade of the Canadian  Northern, which Mr. Hill pronounced  to be first class.  "One can see a good deal more of a  country by getting off the railway  ���������aud seeking the highways and byways  and it was jusk for this reason'1 took  the present trip. It gave Mr. Gray an  exceptional opportunity for seeing tin-  possibilities of the Okanagan and the  .Siuiilkameen. We are going to build  .a line south from Penticton to Oroville  there connecting with our V. V. & E.  line* It was one of the objects I expected to have discussed -with Premier  McBride until I learned of his absence,  However-, if time permits I may run  over to see the other ministers," said  Mr. Hill. "The fruit growing and  agricultural future of that great inland  region is-assured, I expect to arrange  for a special car displaying British  Columbia products to be sent out on a  tour of our line to show what British  Columbia can do. We send .out similar displays from other states and find  that it is a form of advertising that  brings splendid lesults.  "1 think British Columbia is the.  richest province in the Dominion and  I tun an enthusiast about its future.  The highways we encountered on the  tour "are simply perfect and must he  great factors in encouraging settlement. 1 don't think they have an  equal as mountain roads anywhere on  eurtb. We made good speed, scaring  some of the natives, 1 fear," said Mr.  Hill with a hearty laugh. "Too much  credit can not he-given the government for its wisdom in spending  money on roads. On our side of the  boundary line they talk'good roads1  but do,-, not act. - With us the money  perhays would be expended but there,  would be no results. That is iust the  advantage- your people have over us.  The money is not diverted t<< other-  people's pockets."  ICE BROKEN AT LAST  Vernon Juries Have Convicted of Murder  ���������Slayer of Constable Aston  To Hang  MAY BURN COAL NOW  Regulations   for  Oil   Burning   Engines  Have Been Modified���������Restrictions  Increased for Coal Burners  A TIMELY REBUKE  Vernon juries which in the past fifteen years or more that courts of assize  have been held in that town have  never: before convicted a prisoner of  murder although almost a plethora of  cases of that kind had come before  them, have at last broken the ice and  taken a double plunge, so to speak, by  finding "guilty",in each of two cases  that came up.at the, sitting of the assizes there last week.  The' most noted case was that of  constable Aston's murder March 19th.  The, prisoner who* had several aliases  but whose real name was Poelke had  no counsel employed nor defence prepared and the Court appointed'barrister R. H. Rodgers who volunteered to  defend and in the brief period in which  he had to preparers credited with presenting an able defence. The man  Wilson who accompanied the prisoner  at the time of the murder turned  King's evidence, so there was little  show for escape, and yet, strange to  say, with the direct evidence given  them and the straight direction of the  presiding Justice that it was their  duty to bring in a. verdict of ''guilty"  the jury were three and a half hours  before bringing it in. The Judge sentenced ��������� the prisoner to be hung tin  August Oth.  The other case was that of Albert  McDougall (Indian) who was charged  with killing his cousin Dave McDougall and he also was found guilty  and sentenced to be hung on the same  day as Poelke.

J. H.  Schofleld, M. P. P., the representative  of tlie riding in which the bridge is  situate performed the honors of the  occasion.  Vancouver, May 26th.���������"Mr. Norman  S. Rankin, of Culgarv. secretary of  the Western Canada Irrigation Association, is here on his way to Victoria on business in connection with  its sixth annual meeting to be held  this year at Kelowna. on August 14th,  15th and 16th, when hundreds of visi-  toi-b are expected to be in attendance.  Mr. Rankin, who is also connected  with the natural let-mirces department  of the C. P. R. system, directed by Mr.  J. S. Dennis, assistant to the president.  Papers will be read by eminent  Canadian and American experts in  special lines of agricultural activity.  Prof. Lewis, of Corvalis, Ore., will  speak on apple growinc and Prof.  Atkinson of the'experimental farm at  Bosenian, Mont., will deal with irrigation practice applied to alfalfa. Other  speakers will be Prof. Deane of Missoula, Mont., and Rev. E. M. Queen  Gray, principal of bhe University of  New Mexico, secretary of the National  Irrigation congress. Mr. Gray will  deal with foreign reclamation systems.  Mr. A. E.' Ashcroft, a prominent Canadian authority will- discuss public  ownership of irrigation, and Mr. John  T. Burns, of Lethbridge, will deal with  dry farming. A delegation from the  National Irrigation congress, to ���������meet  this year at Salt Lake City, will also  be in attendance.  Hon. Martin Burrell, federal minister of agriculture; and Hon. W. It-.  Ross, provincial minister .of lands, and  other members of the provincial cabinet, have also expressed their intention of bcinp; present as the meeting  is fraught with great possibilities for  British Columbia.  On his way here Mr. Rankin visited  the Okanagan and Kamloops, to confer with leading members including  Hon. V. K. Fulton, Messrs. R. H.  Agar, of .Suiiiinerland, president of  the .British Columbia .Fruit Growers'  Association, and Mr. W. C, Ricardo,  manager of the Aberdeen Ranch at  Vernon.  The  ukase  of' the  Commission   on  Conservation    which   specified    that  railways must use only oil. burning  locomotives through wooded country  Avas felt to be too drastic and might  seriously effect the coal mining industry. This ground was taken by Hon.  W.' R. Ross,' Minister of Lands for  British Columbia, who went to Ottawa  to effect a compromise if possible as it  was believed that it would strike a  severe blow at the coal mining industry in British Columbia. There is evidence now tha't his mission must have  proven successful for a new set of  regulations have been issued by the  Commission which does not make oil  burning obligatory but compels greater-care and responsibility on .railway  companies using coal burners. The  regulations read:  "All coal burning locomotives to be  fitted with specified netting spark arresters.  Locomotive ash pans to be specially  constructed with a view to preventing  the escape of live coals.  'Railway companies to be required to  provide locomotive inspectois at terminal and divisional points. These inspectors to examine weekly the netting and firebox of each of the locomotives running into such divisional  points. The records kept by these inspectors to he available for the chief  fire inspectors of the<,railway and of  the commission.  The railway board to employ a chief  fire inspector for the. Dominion, who  will be given wide powers in the mutter of keeping railway rights of way  free from inflammable material and  requiring the construction of proper-  fire guards. He shall also prepare  each year- a detailed statement for the  railway companies setting forth the  measures that they will be required to  take to prevent fires.  Section men and other employees of  the companies to constitute emergency  fire lighting forces.  The companies to be held liable for  losses caused by their locomotives,  where regulations of the railway board  have been disregarded.  On  portions of railway lines where  oil   locomotives  are, used  the regulat  tions  may    be  suspended.      Railway  Duke of Connaught   Has a Word   for  ���������   Those Who Glibly Use Words of  Which They Do Not Know  the Meaning.  Toronto, May 23���������His royal highness, the Duke of Connaught, this  afternoon attended the Empire day  celebration in Queen's park, where he  reviewed 3,800 public and high school  cadets. After witnessing their march  past he addressed the cadets, complimenting them warmly on their appearance.  "We hour sometimes people making  very foolish' lemarks about militarism", said his royal highness in his.  address. "I do not know what they  mean. Militarism means that the organization of a country and all its laws  are subservient to military law anil  discipline. That is not the case here-  and never will be. I see no militarism,  in your being taught discipline and to  carry out your duties as citizens'. I  will watch with interest the cadet  movement in Canada. 1 hope it will  prosper and increase year by year.".  In the decoration of monuments  which followed, the duke personally  placed the school children's offering of  flowers upoin the monument' to his  mother, Queen Victoria.

IN CLOSE PURSUIT  Posse After Outlaw Indians Expects to  Effect Their Arrest at Any  Moment.  Clinton, May 23���������The posse has been  tracking the outlaw Indians in the  Alkali district and picked up the  tracks yesterday which crossed the  Cariboo Road. They sighted the outlaws through glasses in a valley late  yesterday three miles away near Ninety-mile Post. The Indians were expected to camp. The posse intended  catching them in enrup early this  morning. The outlaws have no horses.  The pose captured more supplies left  by the indians in a hurry. They can  get to the Clear Water, C'anim or  Green Lake districts from where they  are, which is a very rough country.  News of their capture is expected in  Clinton .shortly.    The posse   has kept  to  the  trail since  the  start and  are  wearing thy Indians out.  The  town  of Armstrong which has  been for the last twenty years a part  of the' municipality of Spallumcheeii, ���������  is now   moving for  incorporation as a  tawn.  Vancouver and Victoria both show  up particularly well in the building record of the cities of Canada. Toronto  and Winnipeg are the only places that  have a bigger record than Vancouver,  and Victoria goes ahead of every other  Ontario city and is ahead of Calgary  and Edmonton.  T. W. Crothei-s, Minister of Labor  in the Borden cabinet purposes maintaining permanent conciliation commissioners.  Prenrier- McBride called on Premier  Borden in Ottawa on his return from  England and discussed with him various matters concerning the relations-  between the province and the dominion.

TEN YEARS GROWTH  During the past ten years the Mutual Life of Canada has more than  doubled its income; its assets have almost trebbled; in insurance in force  has more that doubled; and its surplus  has increased more than sevenfold!  The reasons for this are not far to  seek. In it the interests of the policyholders are paramount. All dividends  belong to and are paid to them alone.  The company does not deal in any  stock or other speculative securities  and in -12 years business they can say  that they have never lost a dollar of  the policy-holders' money.

THE  NEW  ZEALAND  HOTEL  * * # * *  JOHN JACKSON, Proprietor  ' A SILL RESOLUTION  It is surprising  how often  the  best  meaning people may be led away with  popular cries that  are   often   nothing  more than mere meaningless phrases.  An example of  that   was seen  a few  days ago  at the. Methodist conference  in Victoria  when a man  from Nelson  brought   in    a    resolution    decrying  what he was pleased  to call  "militarism" that he fancied he saw sweeping  over Canada like a tidal wave.    Peace  of course, is a capital thing   and, with  the dealer in moral platitudes, can be  counted  at all  times a staple in  his  stock in trade, but there was as little:  ground for bringing in the resolution  in   any    religious   conference,  synod  or aseinbly as one could well imagine.  The way  to ensure peace  is to be prepared to defend   and  the present Minister of Militia and Defence in Canada  is to be commended for. his efforts to  galvanize a little life into an organization which was fast going to seed, and  give the   people some reasonable  return   for  the  money   it was costing  them    by  giving   them   an    efficient  article in place of the inefficient.      He  was  not   responsible   for  either  the  cadet or buy >cout movements   but he  has shown the good sense to make use  of whatever there was at hand  to im  prove the defence of bhe country   and  he is moving in the right direction  in  giving all  possible  encouragement  to  the boy scout movement and that for  fostering  cadet corps.     The iiddition  of four days  to the old 12 day period  of annual training  is certainly a good  move and one.  that will be commended by all who have had  an  opportunity  to observe the working out of the  old system and saw how the men who  made up   the annual  training carnps  were disbanded just when   they  had  begun to get used to the work, but by  adding four days they will now derive  more benefit from the extra four days  than they were able  to get from  the  first eight.  Neither do we believe the vote, of  the Conference on this occasion is fair-  to the Methodists of Canada who we  think are as ready to bear their share  in the defence of the country as any  others; but the mover of the resolution managed to convey the idea that  the}* were disposed to play the poltroon and lie down before their foes  instead of getting ready to meet them.  When their representatives in the  conference supported the. blatherskite  resolution of the man from Nelson  they evidently had run out of more  important material for consideration  and should have adjourned and gone  home.  GENERAL NEWS  The latest bank merger that is rumored is the most colossal of any that  have yet been attempted. It is to be  a merger- within a merger.

The break in the Hume last week  has proven one of the most difficult to  repair of any that has yet taken place.  Considerable preparatory work was  necessary in getting the foundation in  shape at that point where the break  occurred before any carpenter- work in  replacing the demolished section's  could proceed.

The  members   of  the Hediey' "Golf  Club are   bewailing the  cutting down  of a, big pine tree which formed a barrier that helped to make one of the interesting features   of   the   "Needle's  Eye" hole in the local golf links.   The  tree was   cut down  by   the   Indian,  Felix, for fiiewood, and as long as ho  leaves the other big tree which helped  to make the portal,'the general character of the hole will not be altered as  badly as   that   of    'Corkscrew'*   was'  changed by the trees cut there.    Nature not only'did much Jbut did all for  the Hediey links, and they may yet be'  an asset for the  town that may tend  to draw  tourists  here if they can be  retained as much as possible as Nature  left them.   Let usiio'pe therefore that  they may suffer ho further from * the.  vandalism born of inexperience on the  one hand or aboriginal utilitarianism  on the other.   Of course, the  reserve  belongs to the Indians and they, have  a right to do with it'as they hitve a  mind to, 'but the Indians will benefit  as much if 'not more, than  others  in  Hedtey by  the   tourist   trade which  may.be drawn when the railway gets  through to the coast, arid tlie fame of,  the Hediey golf links which have been  so highly commended by experienced  visiting golfers, gets abroad.
