The Golden Gate Hotel' keeps up to  the record of the past, arid that record  was good.  Mr. Carmichael came up from Kruger Mountain on Saturday, and will  return this week.       .  Arrangements are being made to  have, water on the school lot. This is  a step in the right direction.  All mail for the Boundary, Alberta,  Manitoba and the U. S. goes South  from here on Tuesdays, Thursdays  and Saturdays.  The shaft at the Stemwinder is down  450 ft. The stamp mill and cyanide  plant will be in operation this Fall or  early next Spring.  Local interest in the work of  the Sunday School is increasing. Several citizens have offered prizes for  attendance, good conduct etc.  Tbe public school here, notwithstanding the efforts of the trustees  and the promise of Inspector Gordon,  is still without a teacher.  The Okanagan Nursery Co. wil have  a large force at work this week. It is  the intention of Curtis Bros, to have  at least ten acres i>eady for seed this  fall.  "Baldy" has on a winter cap. This  mountain is in the vicinity of Camp  McKinney and can be seen from Fair-  view. It gives warning of the ap-  roach of winter.  Mr. Lee of the Stemwinder Camp is  in the Boundary district and ready to  book 50 men for work in our mine.  For underground work men are paid  from $3.50 to $5.00 a day, and surface  men $3.25.  Last week Constable Haynes removed his family and household effects  to Osoyoos. McDougall's 4 horse team  ran away with the load of furniture,  doing considerable damage to crockery  &c.  A meeting of the Fairview Conservative Association is called by President R. H.

Special and  Prompt Attention given  to Hedley and Princeton Towns.     33-1  Dr. Mathison, dentist, arrived in  Hedley on Thursday nipht and expects  to be here until Oct, 3. Make appointments early.  Mr. A. Boswell, of Quebec, one of  the principal share-holders in the  Kingston Gold <fe Copper Mining Go.  of this camp is also interested financially in the ill-fated Quebec bridge  which collapsed a few weeks ago. Mr.  Wells.on one of his trips east had an  opportunity to examine the bridge,  and have the plan of construction explained to him. He is therefore much  interested in the event, and is able to  make a good many points clear that  would otherwise seem vague in descriptions of the. disaster that have appeared in the papers, and in evidence  being taken at the inyestigation.  Our news item of last week which  told of the stay of Al. McKinney in  Princeton and Hedley has elicited several personal inquiries regarding the  man ; and as in some casesthe inference has been drawn that he was dissipated and had gone through his pile;  we here make further reference to him  by giving a few of the reminiscences  gleaned from him in conversation last  week.   ',  In the first place the Gazette wishes  to say that no inference reflecting on  Al. McKinney should be drawn from  the item of last week,  for none was  meant to be conveyed,  and so far as  we are aware there was never any thing  in his life, or habits to cause anyone to'  think anything but well of him.    So  far as going through any pile, to be  destitute   and  dependent   in  his old  age,  is concerned, it is not likely that  he ever had any big pile to go through,  for w'hen he owned the Cariboo with  his partner, Fred Rice, although it was  known to be very rich,  it was only a  mineral claim away off in the woods,  and it was not the pleasure of the goddess   Fortune that  its   great wealth  should go to him,  but to others'less  deserving.  '.-. The pitiable condition into which  the ravages of a dread disease had  brought him, need not be laid to any  fault of his, but should call forth on  his behalf the sympathies of all who  ;honor that sturdy class of men whose  services to the country have been but  inadequately acknowledged, and of  which class he is a very fair type.  As he told his story with difficult  articulation lying on the floor of the  cell which sheltered him, at times the  spirit of the old prospector would come  out and he seemed to live again the  old scenes.  It was in the spring of 1887 that he,  along with Fred Rice, Burnha m (whom  he referred to sis " the old man ") and  Edward  Lefevre, afterwards   known  among Boundary prospectors as "old  Frenchy," left Colville.    Passing Rock  Creek they found Charlie Dietz and  others placer mining on White Bar on  the north fork of Rock Creek.   They  stayed for a while at Dietz's placer  camp and from there started to look  over the ridge of country lying between the two forks.   Pushing on towards ** Old Baldy," their shins scraped  with the crust on the snow, for it was  a late spring, they came, on May 27th,  1887,  upon an open  bare spot  overlooking a nice little stream which was  flowing southward towards the south  fork of Rock   Creek,   into   which  it  emptied after making several windings  towards the east.   On this bare knoll  they found quartz outcrop decomposed  in which the gold was plainly seen in  abundance,  there  being no necessity  for panning to find it, although they  did gather up some of the more decomposed matter and panned in the stream  near by, getting not colors but a little  long ridge of gold that  they   could  gather   into   little   heaps   with their  thumb nails on- the bottom rim of the  pan.    From  the surface exposures it  appeared wrongly that the vein was  running north and south, and the first  claim staked was the Cariboo, running  1500 feet north and south by 600 feet  in width as the law then required for a  mineral claim.   This claim thev located in the name of McKinney and Rice.  Some more prospecting around showed  more outcroppings to the east that in  the excitement of the discovery they  took   to   be   another   parallel   vein.  Burnham complained bitterly that he  was not let in on the Cariboo,  or as  McKinney put it, "he cried."   Then  they told him  to put stakes  on the  ground to' the  east.     This   wouldn't  .satisfy him, until McKinney took him  over to it and showed him the gold in  it.      They   gathered   a panful,   and  the decomposed quartz was like white  ashes.   They took  this down  to the  creek and panned it out, getting $2.50  worth of gold in  the one pan.    This  ground   was   also staked   north  and  south  1500 feet,  but by   getting the  posts too near the Cariboo centre line  they only got a width of 500 feet or a  little less.   This claim was called the  Amelia, and was in the name of Burn-  ham  and Lefevre.     The   camp  they  called Mckinneyj  and the creek Rice  creek.  The next move was to record the  claim, and this they did with Henry  Nicholson at Rock Creek, from whom  they had obtained their miners' licences ; and so well were they all satisfied  with the find that there was no more  thought of prospecting just then, but  a burning desire instead to get down  into it and see what they had below.  Tools and supplies were brought in  and a 60 foot shaft was sunk. Austen  Hamar, he said, was his principal assistant in the sinking of this shaft.  Next year he let his interest go to  Spokane parties, among whom he  mentioned.Tames Monaghan, Geo. B.  McAuleyand Clement King. The purchasers, it appeared, were in little  better shape to operate it than he was  himself, and he mentioned of one time  that Monaghan would have backed  out and given him the interest back.  No mention was made of the price  for which he had parted with his interest, and under the circumstances  the Gazette forebore trying to elicit  the information ; but if we remember  right it has been talked around Camp  McKinney that the. sum paid was  something like $7,000.  The writer remembers the circumstances under which Mr. Monaghan  afterwards disposed of his shares in the.  mine some ten years afterwards. Besides the money which he had taken  out in dividends during these ten years  he disposed of his stock in the company  at 60 cents per share in 1898 and his  holdings were sufficiently large to give  him something' over $400,000 in cash.  Monaghan afterwards made large investments in Spokane, which have  greatly increased in value, and he is  now in receipt of a large annual  income.  When he began to operate the Cariboo in April 1894, he was almost bankrupt, for then the trade depression was  at its worst. He obtained a secondhand ten-stamp mill off tbe Rainbow  claim in Washington state which he^  bought on credit and hauled in to McKinney, standing off the customs for  several months for the duty, and having an understanding with the miners  he brought in with him, that their  pay was to come out of the ore,, and  they were to take their chances on  that, the same as he was doing.  After all it is seen that the harder  the times the better it is for operating  a gold mine. The Cariboo paid big  from the first drop of the stamps on  the 2tth of April, 1894.  AL McKinney, now down on his luck,  has done much prospecting since then,  but Fortune knocked only once at his  door. The hope that springs eternal  in the human breast, however, stayed  with him and took him into the Hope  mountains on this his last trip to make  another stake to leave with his daughter, for he had years ago made up his  mind to the inevitable, concerning  his own fate. His strength failed him,  and he would have died alone in the  mountains had he. not been found and  brought in.  COMING ALONG  STEADILY  Grading on the V. V: & E. to  Hedley Has Fairly  Begun.  THE FORCE STEADILY INCREASING  Stewart & Welch's First Camp on Upper Flat of Price Estate ��������� Much of  Route to be Done by Station Work.  During the past two weeks more  men have been corning in to increase  the grading force on the portion now  being covered by Stewart & Welch on  the first five miles out of Keremeos.  Last week the arrival, of laborers  over-taxed the camping equipment for  a short time until more could be provided.  As the railway right of, way encroached on the wagon road, a new  road was made by the graders for use  by wagons.  A. Kellett, the former superintendent in charge of Stewart & Welch's  construction Work, is engaged near  Spokane, but Geo. Cunningham, who  was formerly with Kellett in charge of  the commissary, is now walking boss,  and Mr. McAlpine is general superintendent.  There will be considerable steam  shovel work on the lower section and  to use the shovel the track will be  carried on a few miles from its present  end which is now a little over a mile  this side of Keremeos station.  The route will take the road across  the river near the present camp and a  tote bridge will be thrown across the  river to accommodate that portion of  it, although the work along the other  side of the river, until it re-crossp.. this  side of Ashnola, will be light, with the  exception of a small piece near Ashnola. Most of the. rock Work will be  done as station work, and already the  takes are being apportioned.  The engineer on construction is Mr.  L. M. Hale, who was over the route  last week as far as Hedley.  THE CANADIAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY FOR 1907  The running of regular trains into  Keremeos is still further postponed  until Oct. 1.  The Boundary mail now comes by  V. V. & E. to Oroville, by stage from  Oroville to Penticton and by stage  from Penticton to Hedley. It is understood that no arrangements have  yet been made for using the V.V.������fcE.  in transportation of the mails to Keremeos when the regular trains are running. If such were done it would reduce the time very much.  Tuesday's mail brought to hand two  of the B. C. coast papers, the Colonist  of Victoria, and the Province, of Vancouver, whose Saturday issues were  most creditable nunjbers. TheColonist  was their regular Saturday edition swollen to 40 pagesj but the  Province number was a special effort  entitled the "Land of Opportunity"  number, and was a production that  readers would do well to keep, for it is  much too good to destroy. An article  which it contains that is of special interest to us here, is the scholarly, descriptive write-up by A. N. St. J. Mild-  may���������an article rising in pints to real  prose-poetry and affording the reader  a half-hour of genuine pleasure.  We have just received from the publishers, A. McKini, Limited, of Montreal and Toronto, a copy of the 1907  edition of the Canadian Newspaper  Directory.  This is the fourth edition of this valuable work, which is filling a very real  need in Canada, and deserves a place  on the desk of every businiss man. It  is the only newspaper directory published in Canada that has gone beyond  a first edition, and it has now become  the standard work of reference for all  information about newspapers.  It not only lists and describes fully  every periodical in the country, giving  full particulars but itsupplies, as well,  a comprehensive Gazetteer of the  Dominion.  Comparing this editien with former  ones, we note a large increase in the  number of papers which have supplied  detailed statements of circulation.  Tho. rapid growth of the new western  provinces is very apparent, for they  are credited with twice as many papers as in 1905.  The McKim Advertising Agency,  publisher of the work, has been formed  into a limited company, capitalized at  $200,000, to be known as A. McKim,  Limited, with headquarters at Montreal, a branch office in Toronto, and  representatives in New York and  London, Eng. This change has been  made to facilitate the handling of  their steadily increasing business.  Ever since this business was founded  by Anson McKim, more than twenty  years ago, the McKim Agency has  stood high in favor with both publisher and advertiser. Their methods are  up-to-date���������enterprising, progressive,  and systematic to a degree.  The firm has won an enviable reputation for fair dealing and prompt  payments and is undoubtedly at the  head of the profession in this country.

The improved   mail service  between  southern   Okanagan  points   and    the  Boundary district,   now-'permits  passengers and  mail   to   reach  Penticton  twenty-six   hours   fioni    Greenwood.  This beats half a   week   all   to  pieces;  and yet a- little-' over eleven   years  ago  when  the  Tories   were   running   the  postal service,   anel  when  Greenwood  was a little ehichan  of-less  than   100  population : and when the total   number of inhabitants  between  Penticton  and Grand Forks would probably not  exceed one-tenth of the present population  of Greenwood  alone,    it, only  took- thirty-six   hours  for  passengers  anil mail   to   reach   Greenwood   from'  Pcn'tieton  although   horseflesh   alone  was available to put it there.   Those  wen- the. days when the.postal service  wa.s regarded ay a   public utility,  and  the-pioneers out   on  the outskirts  of  civilization   gob   a   square   deal,    although at election times they were too  few   to make   their, votes   count.    It  was  when, in order  to  provide  more  largesse for the "sisters and the cousins and the -aunts"  of  greedy  parliamentarians that cheese-p'aaring   politicians e>f the Mulock  type, conceived  the idea of squeezing surplus revenue  out of the. P. 0. Dept, and  to  do so,  ��������� had to seriously   impair   the   service.  Numerous instances might  be cited to  .show the' inconvenience and   loss  entailed upon the public by  this impairment of the mail   .service,   but one  or  two   will   sul'licc.   auel   like    charity,  which should begin at home,   we   will  take our examples From  Yale-Cariboo.  The distance   between   Camp McKinney and    Fairview - is   28'   miles,   and  Fairview having the   Government ag-  gt'iicy, it was most important that the  postal   facilities should    afford   every  mean:-at hand for speedy  communication,    Before   Mr.   Muloek's  f:heese-  paring   economies1   were    brought   te>  bear on that mail route it was possible  to send a   letter out  from   McKinney  to   Fairview   by   the   morning   stage  and get a reply from the  government  office by the return stage on  the  next-  evening ;   but after  that service  was  cut off in  1001,   when  McKinney wa.s  still in   a flourishing  condition,  mail  ma tier between these two points (only  28 miles apart) Intel to make the circuit  via Greenwood, Nelson, Arrow Lakes,  Kevelstoke, Sicanirnis  and  Penticton,  ami it took two weeks to get a reply.

To the  Editor of "The 'Hkdmsy  Gazette,"���������  ' Detir Sir: As the Gazette is the recognizee! ollicial organ of the Similkameen riding, I would ask you to publish in your next issue the enclosed  copy of a letter addressed' to the  Boundary Creek Times in reply to an  editorial which appeared in that paper  in its issue of Sept. Oth.  As the editorial in question contained so' inuch that was contrary to facts,  I consider in justice, to our representative, and to the ('overninent that the  earliest, anel fullest publicity should he  given to a correct' statement of the  situation. Thanking you for your  courtfsy, I am, dear sir,  Yours truly,  H. S. PiTTEXimieiit.  Rock Creek, B.C., Sept. 12th, 1907.  PROPERTY  Is  A  Good,  Safe  HEDLEY  I n vestment  To THE Editor.' of " tjjk Boundary  Cheek Times,"���������  Dear Sir: An editorial under the  caption, "The Rock Creek Bridge,"appeared in your issue of the Oth hist,  containing such glaring inaccuracies  which may be presumably ascribed to  your ignorance of the facts, as the  key-note of your article is so insistent  in condemning partisan bias.  Your statement " that local parties  were, making ready for the enterprise,  possibly with the mistaken view that  by having preliminaries under way  they could influence-) the judgment of  the engineer," is entirely erroneous.  Pull plans of the bridge; to be constructed "above the mouth of Rock Creek"  were forwarded from the Lands and  Works Dept., Victoria, to the district-  superintendent of roads and instructions given by him to the foreman of  the work, before a stick of timber was  cut. The situation of the bridge is  evidently bete noir, and in reading between the lines Of the .flimsy arguments advanced against it. it is stune-  what difficult to determine whether  partisan bias or dense ignorance of the  subject is the predominating factor.  Perhaps a few facts in connection with  the inception e>f the bridge may tend  to clear the editorial cranium and lead  to a more intelligent comprehension of  the situation.  For some few years past the residents of this portion of the Similkameen riding have petitiemed the. Government, through their representative,  the necessity of a bridge at thecrossing  of the Kettle liver at Rock Creek, the  natural thoroughfare for accommodating not only the -'hill fanners" but the  farmers above Rock Creek. The lower  portion of the Rettle river being already spanned by two bridges, one at  Ingram's and one at Midway, the  building of the Rock Creek bridge  equally divides the stretch of river  between Rock Creek and Midway,  there luting about seven miles between  each bridge. The site of the bridge,  now under construction, is an exceptionally good oue, the river bed is good  and the cource of the current of the  stream such as to minimize the danger  from logs and driftwood. The site  was not hurriedly chosen, the various  stages of water being well considered,  and besides receiving the full sanction  of the member for the district who  takes an active part in the distribution  of the public money in his riding,and  " in a way consistent with the public  good," the site has also received the  approval of competent engineers.  Surely,  Mr. Editor,   you  must have  been   poking  fun   when   your, ideal  bridge "would  lead   directly   tei   the  chosen site of the Midway & Vernon  railway depot."    One thing is evident,  you are certainly a. typical British Columbian, always living in hopes. Well,  we all hope that the evanescent Midway & Vernon will be built some day.  and when it is, the elepot will be where  nature has provided a site for it,  viz.,  opposite the mouth of Rock creek, a  site  which commends, itself to the ordinary business sense, but I think the  new bridge, will be completed   before  the depot is.    Your concern  for the  Kettle    River    Irrigation    Company  seems somewhat misplaced ; when the  gentlemen who are at the head of this  company started operations, the whole  countryside was open   to   them  and  tliougb they purchased properties both  above   and   below   Roe:k   Creek  they  failed  to recognize the value of the  land at the mouth of Rock creek as a  natural business centre.   The plea for  building the  bridge on their land for  the accommodation of "the large number eif families  which  will be located  there" is almost too funny;  one may  imagine the editorial smile as the lines  were penned, but surely,  Mr. Editor,  you must have been suffering from a  lapsus memoriae,  that you had previously written  those momentous lines,  " we do not for a moment believe- that  any partisan bias wenild influence the  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in  Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.  centre of the  It is the mining and business  Similkameen  the new* mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development, work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.
