Estimates Furnished on any Electrical Project for Power or Light  The long lull in'.railway progress, in  which a few men were working and  many others looking on, is. apparently  on the eve of coming to ah end.  That the track has reached Molson  there is little reason to doubt, for on  Thursday. 20th, it had passed McBride  station about a mile, and had a little  less than four miles of straight going  to reach Molson, .wifch.'n'p' more trestles  to delay.     '..;.-. ;  ��������� .'West"'of Molson ���������all the gi������i:ling has  been completed to Qroville, and on  past proville for 22 miles further to  the B. C. boundary, north of Night-  hawk. Then there intervenes about 6  miles between the boundary line and  Armstrong's, upon which No. 3 Camp  has been at work for over five, months  and which will take about three more  weeks to complete.  Work has commenced on the bridge  over the Okanagan river at Oroville.  But so far as we are 'concerned at  Hedley, interest centres in the. probable action of the contractors whose  outfits-have been stored at Midway  for over two months aAvaiting the  track to reach Molson to transport  their outfits there, and also awaiting  the letting of ���������"contracts west' of Kere-  nieos, for as yet no contracts have  been let any further up the river than  Keremeos. These contractors are getting tired waiting and dining the past  two weeks have become fidgety. Their  impatience is likely to prove a factor  in bringing an end to the period of  sluggish inactivity that has characterized the operations of the past two  months, and it is not improbable that  we may hear any day of the letting of  more contracts this side of Keremeos���������  a consmnmation devoutly to be wished.

It stands  to reason that a tree planted in the fall becomes  settled and ready to grow in the spring, when climatic  conditions are suitable. Why plant a tree in the spring  / that is half dead when planted, through being out of the  ground from four to six weeks, besides being over-taxed  at the fumigating station, when you can  GET YOUR TREES  RIGHT AT HOME  and have them already acclimatized. We have *200,000  trees now ready for planting and guarantee all trees  planted in the  fall.  We make a specialty of Hedges and now have on  hand, ready for shipment this fall, 1,000,000 plants.  When Lodge is complete under our patent, it will turn  all ordinary stock, such as horses, cattle and hogs,  and adds beauty to the home.  Our Mr. Curtis will shortly be through the Siniilkiuuocn  Valley.      :      Send youv address and he will call on you.  Okanagan Nursery Coy, Ltd.  J. F. Rowe, Sec-Treas. PENTICTON,   B. C.  On Thursday, 20th, the first fatality  attending   the   outbreak   of fever at  this place occurred, when John Oscar  Vansickle,  one of the fever patients,  passed away,  although it could not  really be said that it was fever which  caused his death, the immediate cause  being   heart  failure.     So far as the  fever was concerned lie had been doing  Equally'.well with the other patients,  but a weak heart made his chance for  recovery all the less.    Deceased was  from   Dresden,   Out,,   and  was   well  known   at  Phoenix,  Greenwood and  Princeton,   where   he   had   resided.  The funeral Avas held on Friday afternoon,   and   was well attended.   The  burial service was conducted by Rev.  A. H. Cameron, who had visited and  waited on him during his illness.    The  casket was covered with flowers contributed by Masons,  Oddfellows and  other friends.  At a. meeting of the citizens held on  Thursday evening last, it was decided  to secure a few acres of the lot west of  funis' ranch for a cemetery, and in  this the late J. O. Vansickle was  buried.  Mr. Mcintosh is putting the saw  mill at Webster's ranch in working  order. He expects to begin manufacturing lumber early in October.  Mrs. W. H. Armstrong and the  Misses Wood row, of Vancouver, are  enjoying the salubrious atmosphere of  the Similkameen.  Canning tomatoes is now the order  of business for Messrs. .Icily and Mat-  tice, who have a large stock of them  to preserve.  WHEN   ANSWERING   ADVERTISERS,    MENTION   THE    GAZETTE  Mi. B. S. Kennedy, late of the Vernon Okanagan, spent Friday in Hedley  awaiting Saturday's stage to  Princeton, where he is to .take charge of the  Star as successor  to  J.   M.  Wright,  Mr. Kennedy  is an  old hand in   the  newspaper "profesh", having learned  the   printers'   art   in  the   Columbian  office in New  Westminster with his  brothers.    Neither  is he  new  to  the  Similkameen  or the   Star,   in which  office   he  stuck the little types five  years  ago,    when   Jimmy  Anderson  and Mrs.  Jimmy worked the oracle.  Mr/Kennedy paid tho Gazette a fraternal    call,   and   discussed    various  topics, politics excluded.   The Gazette  Wishes   him   success and trusts that  friendly relations may always prevail.  ��������� By Horace F. Kvan*.  Copper occurs tin tins mountain in  various forms, principally as chnleo-  pyrite or oxidation product. The.deposit has been known for a number of  years, but only recently, with the construction of the Great Northern system  into the Similkameen, has interest  been awakened.  Eschelon -mountain has its eastern  end in the immediate vicinity of the  point where Five Mile Creek empties  into the S'mnlkameen. about five, miles  east of the town of Princeton.  The topography is a series of ridges  and ranges densely covered for the  most part with fir and pine, with a  general northwestern -trend, 'except  where an occasional mountain occurs  in eschelon.  From the point where the Aslmola  river enters the Siinilkaineen, in latitude 10 15 , longitude about 120 W.,  there are three notable creeks which  are tributary to the main Siinilkaineen.  These are respectively "Twenty-Mile,"  "Five-Mile" and "Graveyard,'' their  order being from east to west.  The first named has its source in the  neighborhood of the Trepenago Plateau. Hedley City, with the Dalv  Reduction works, is at the mouth of  this creek, and the Nickel Plate Mine  is in the neighborhood. Eighteen  miles farther west is-.Five-Mile" creek.  This creek has its source in the neighborhood of Aspen Grove Plateau. Its  course is parallel to Twenty-Mile and  the i.onditions are similar.  Graveyard'ereek originates from the  chain of lakes a few miles north of its  confluence with the Similkameen, and  its name is no doubt due. to the fact  that a number of ,old Indian graves  occur near the junction of the two  streams, about three miles east of  Princeton.  The. granite rocks which occur along  this portion of the Siinilkaineen to  Twenty-Mile constitute an interesting  -feature in the geology of this section.  These granite masses have been correlated with the plutonic masses of  the Coast ranges and in the neighborhood of Nicola Lake.  >  The age assigned to the granite, of  the Coast range is that of a period subsequent to the Triassic and antecedent  to the. earlier Cretaceous, though it is  known that granite rocks much earlier  than the Triassic occur in many portions of the orovince.  These granites for the most part are  coarse grained, and they pass in composition from biotite granite through  the biotite hornblendic series, to forms  in   which hornblende prevails.     The  biotite granites are the more abundant  and are as a rule uniform in character.  Jointage is noticeable.   On  Eschelon  mountain, where they appear as evidences of old sedimentaries and vol-  canics   of   pre-Cretaceous   date,  they  occur in two distinct zones, separated  by   the  sediment  and   volcanics, all  being cut by dikes of quartz porphyry  or some variation of it.  Two or three forms of the biotite are.  found to contain considerable quantities of copper carbonates with a  small percentage of chalcopyrite, varying from 1 to 2 per cent. Whether  this occurrence is that of replacement  products from the old sediments or  not, has not yet been determined.  Tht! sediments so far as proven appear to have a north-south strike, and  to be wedged in between two masses  of the granite rocks, this width being  subdivided into three distinct zones,  one of 05 meters, which undoubtedly  contains the best ore, one of 40 meters,  containing a mixture of sediments and  intervenes, and a third zone to the  west having a width of about 35 meters.  The slant height of the south slope-  is about 000 meters from the base in  the Similkameen valley to the top of  the cliffs which are extensively marked  by deep green and blue carbonates.  The greater portion of the old sediments and their associated roeks lie to  the west of the first contact with the  biotite granite and the present relation  between the igneous and sedimentary  rocks is, therefore, almost completely  made out, and it is evident from this  that the sediments and associated volcanics are not old "roots" resting on a  granite foundation of older rocks, as  the granites are unquestionably of  later date.   It may, therefore, well be  Concladocl on Page Pour.  M. K. IS STILL DOING THIN.GS-.  Operations on an Extensive Scale Going  On in the North  That Catella on Controller Bay. is to  be the sea terminus of tho Copper River and Northwestern Railway is no  longer questioned by peasons familiar  with .developments in the northern  country within the past week. It has  been learned that M. K. Rodges, representing-the Morgan and Guggenheim  interests, has purchased la bout 1,000  acres of land at Catella and now owns  morethan a mile of the water front.  He has decided upon locations for  docks and. warehouses, and it is understood that the work of buildingabreakwater will commence this winter or  early in the spring.  The first story of the change in the  sea terminus of the Copper River and  Northwestern Railway was published  in the Times more than two months  ago. At that time M. K. Rodgers was  taking options on property at Catella  and had a corps of engineers at work  surveying a route for the road. Tn  the. past month the property upon  which Rodgers held options has been  acquired and at Catella it is a certainty  that the work'of building the road  will commence at an early date.  With the news of the change in the  terminus of. the Copper River and  Northwestern Railway comes the reports from Catella. that the Alaska  Coal and Petroleum Company, of  which T. S. Lippy and Clarke Davis  of this city are interested, will build a  railroad from some point near Catella  to the coal and oil properties.' It was  learned yesterday that definite locations had been made for bunkers and  that the surveys for the rail line  are about completed. The coal will be  mined and brought to the coast for  shipment to the states. The engineers  worked under the direction of Wesley  Rodgers, a brother of M." K. Rodgers,  who is looking after the interests of  the Eastern capitalists at Catella.  Port Valdez was chosen as the. sea  terminus   of the   Copper River and  Northwestern Railway more than   a  year ago.   Wharves   were 'built and  grading work started when M. K Rodgers was sent north to determine whether there was a more practical route.  He went to Catella and after a month  decided that it was a  better  terminus  than Port Valdez.    It will be necessary  to put in a breakwater at Catella   before wharves can be built any great  distance from the shore.   Steamers on    .  the   Southeastern  Alaska  route   are  now making Catella a regular port of  call, and cargo is sent ashore by the use  of   lighters and  smaller boats.  M. K. Rodgers has been working  quietly in the northern country' more  than three months and it is now a certainty that the Copper River and  Northwestern railway will within a.  very short time have Catella for its  headquarters instead of Port   Valdez. ���������  According to late, government reports the coal in that vicinity is high  grade and as soon as rail lines are  built there is no doubt but what Alaska will figure as a shipper of coal  for consumption in the states. Favorable reports are being received from  oil wells along Controller Bav, ami representatives of American and English companies arc now in the field,  WEDDING BELLS.  At Okanagan Falls on  the  evening  of September 19th in the soft  light  of  Japanese lanterns,  a pretty  wedding  was solemnized by Rev. A. H. Cameron  at the. residence of Mr.  and  Mrs jno.  McLellan, when their daughter, Dais;y  was united in marriage to Mr.   Gerald  Clark of Green Mountain.   The bride  was attended by her sister Miss Maggie  McLellan and Mr. Clark had as groomsman Mr. L. W. Findlay of Penticton.  About forty guests witnessed the nup-  tals and partook of the wedding supper  after which "feet swept   around  in theinazv dance" which was continued until the time to  leave for Penticton to catch the boat.   The many pretty and useful presents received by the  bride evidence the high esteem of her  friends.   Mr and Mrs.  Clark after a  trip to the coast cities will reside at  Green Mountain.   The Gazette joins  with their many friends in  wishing  the happy couple all   the   joys  attendant upon the event. THE   HEDLEY    GAZETTE,   SEPTEMBER 27,    1906.

The Nelson News, published  by F. J. Deane, contains this  somewhat remarkable paragraph: ���������  "Mr. F. .1. Deane proprietor of the  Daily News, returned last night from  an extended trip to variousB. C points.  He has been absent from the city for 6  wei'ks, and during that time has visited the towns and cities along tin; main  line of C.P.R., the lower mainland, island and Siinilkaineen. Apart from the  principal motive of having a holiday,  Mr."Dea ne's idea was to'make a careful  study of labor conditions so as to form  a just estimate of the causes which led  to the recent agitation for admission of  free Chinese labor. For that purposp  hk wis:*'!' to THE SiMir.KAMEE.v where  lie could lind fruit-growers who are already operating on a large scale and  learn their, views at first hand. Last  night, however, being tired after his  return journey, he was not prepared to  speak of the conclusions he had formed. To-day he will throw his holiday  habits aside and settle down to. work  again."  The above paragraph as it appeared in the News, was honored with a three-decker heading  Avhich informed its readers that  the"labor case" had been "studied." and that "Mr. F. J. Deane  had Returned from Extended  Trip" and was "Armed with the  Views of Similkameen Fruitgrowers."  Elsewhere on tlie same page  of the News is the important  announcement that  "Ere he (Mr. Macdonald) returns, he  hopes to make a trip through the Similkameen and become thoroughly acquainted with the political situation  in Mr. Shatford's district. The Siinilkaineen is destined to see an intciest-  ing fight during the coining election,  for, while the present member, Mr.  Shatford, is universally respected, his  course in connection with several questions which came before the house? during the last session at Victoria was not  altogether pleasing to his constituents.  It is early yet to say who his opponent  mav he; the liberals of the Siinilkaineen have not yet made auv announcement on that subject. Nevertheless,  thev are certain to pill: up an earnest  and effective light.  Now what is this  all aboutV  In the Similkameen   riding  we  were not a ware that there was  ��������� any labor question to be studied  except the scarcity of labor, below Keremeos, on the V. V. &E.  grades which prevented the employment of sufficient force  to  give us railway connection'within the   time   promised   by   the  railway officials twelve  months  ago.    It looks very much  as  if  this labor question   is  a   flimsy  and exceedingly silly pretext on  the part of Mr. Deane to thrust  himself into  public;  notice  and  endeavor to establish some sort  of connection between the Similkameen  riding   and himself;  for what are the facts'? A Farmers'Institute meeting or something of that kind  over about  Kaslb expresses doubts as to the  N  But there are other little evidences to be  recalled   illustrative of, not so much Mr. Deane's  kindly interest in  the  Siinilkaineen and in the cause of labor  as his interest in the  interests  of Mr. Deane  in   said  Siinilkaineen.    A few* months  ago,   he  ' was furnishing  information   to  'the  Similkameen   Star -intend--,  j ed to  reflect  upon   L. W. Shat-  iford M. P. P. in reference to  his  j position on the eight hour day  ! for smelters,   last   session,   but  was brought up  with  a round j  turn by Mr. H. A.  Turner who'  was in a position to  show*  that'  Mr. Deane's statements on that \ g  ruattter were very wide  of the  truth.    Mr. Deane poses as one  of the pillars of the Liberal party'in  the  Interior,  as well  as  finding time for a little grand  stand play by way of coqueting  with the socialists.     But where  was  he during  the  session   of  1905? During all that session he  was in the press gallery of the  House, slang whanging the socialists whom he is now trying to  toady, and sending to his .paper'  in Nelson, garbled reports of the  doings of the House, that were  disgraceful  in  the  violence  of  the partisanship which they displayed.    In that session he saw*  the division on  the  eight-hour  smelter bill which is recorded on  page 30 of "votes and proceedings," and which show's that the  member for Similkameen who  wa.s present when the vote was  taken, voted for the  bill,   while  J. A. Macdonald, leader <of the  Liberal   opposition    and   J. Ii.  Brown, the Liberal representative from the Greenwood riding  where smelter' men were working  12 hours   a day,   voted a-  gainst the bill,  without a. word  of protest or reproof from  Mr.  Deane.    No thanks to Mr. Macdonald or Mr. Brown for voting  for the bill in the session of 1900,  for in the interval between the  sessions of 1905   and   1900   the  question of an eight-hour day in  the Boundary smelters was settled by mutual arrangement between the smelters   and   their  employees  and   an   eight-hour  day granted quite independent  of Mr. Macdonald.  It is currently reported that  Mr. Deane is plotting to induce  the socialists to pledge their  support to his own candidature  as Liberal nominee in tlie Similkameen. The socialists and  labor voters, however, have not  forgotten how* he boasted on  tlie platform in Hedley, in the  federal campaign in 1904, that  Duncan Ross had been sailing  into the socialists and handling  them without gloves, and they  are able to take his measure  .now*, when he conies begging  their support after having played them false in the past when  it suited his purpose to do so.  And j)ray, who will believe  that F. J. Deane would risk fifteen cents of his own money to  lead a forlorn hope in the Similkameen. Where would the campaign funds come from but the  Grand Trunk Pacific whose agent, Morse, tried to hold up this  province for 15,000 acres per  mile, but was turned down by  the McBride Government who  refused to stand for it. The  Similkameen knows something  of the advantage of having a.  representative upon whom the  big corporations have no strings,  and they are not disposed to  throw away that advantage.  Miss Emilia G, McMullen, of the C.  P. R. telegraph service, Vernon, has  coine to Green Mountain to make her  home for a time.  Mr. L. A. Clark, who is superintending the big irrigation ditch at the  Coldstream ranch, Vernon, is as busy  as ever, but expects to close it down  in November, for the winter, and return home.     , '.. .

Mr. and Mis. Soukup have the Gazette's thanks for a fine assortment of  vegetables grown on their ranch up  the Similkameen. With the vegetables was also a sample of fruit from  their young orchard which is just beginning to bear. The sample was that  of a choice variety of plum of excellent  flavor, that shows the canyon of the  Similkameen to be capable of producing a line variety of fruit.  The reduced rate to the coast for the  provincial exhibition to be held at  Victoria is very tempting, and doubtless quite a number will take advantage of it. The rate from Penticton  and return, good for two weeks is j  .$1-4.25. Of course those resident in  the Similkameen have' the. stage fare  to add to this, but that also was reduced to $10.00  A big cougar has lately evinced a  preference for the locality around Geo.

They paid all the club's debts and left  a small surplus to carry over for next  year. During the summer the team  played six games, winning five, which  was a very good record indeed.  The Greenwood Ledge refers feelingly to the mistake made by 'Polio Stens-  land in shinning off for Morocco and  getting caught when he might have  been absolutely safe if he had gone, to  some of the stores in Greehwood that  do not advertise.

Parker and Gross, of Winnipeg, representing the Great West Permanent Loan and Savings Co., were  in town on Monday in the interests of  their company. As a result of their  visit it is believed that a somewhat  better feeling exists among some of  the local shareholders towards the  con^any than that which had been  engendered through the misrepresentations of the first agent who came  in here in June, 1905.
