That Is a  Question All Voters Along Similkameen River Between Keremeos Creek  and Princeton' Will Ask Duncan  Ross, As He Supported Subsidy.  (Penticton Press.)  A party of surveyors, reputed to be  0. P. R., are at present located about  twelve miles east of Penticton on the  Carmi trail, not far from the head of  Ellis creek. On Monday a number of  the. gang with a pack train, were in  Penticton for supplies, but could give  no information as. to the object the  party has in view. The most profound  secrecy is maintained, and the men  themselves merely know that they are  working i'or the chief engineer.  A party of C. P. R. engineers have  been   working  all   summer   between  Nicola and Penticton and it is conjectured that those up..Ellis creek have  worked in from Midway and are connected with the same proposition, that  of riming a line from  Midway,  the  terminus of the C. P. It. at Hie east, to  the terminus of the Company's branch  to Nicola.     This much is known for a  certainty, that the Ellis creek party  are locating a railway survey line that  was made twelve years ago from Midway to Penticton.    Some grading was  at that time done at this point but was  discontinued.    At the last session of  the Dominion parliament, a subsidy of  .$3,500 per mile was  granted for the  building of a railroad from Carmi to  Penticton and  the same for erne from  Penticton to  Nicola.     The  proposed  railway from  Midway to Vernon carries a subsidy,  and it is believed that  the C. P. R. will utilize a portion  of  this route, that from Midway to Beav-  erdell and Carmi, and then make connections with   Nicola via  Penticton,  thus opening up an excellent mining  section,  and giving   the  company   a  much shorter route to the coast.  A large; scow has been in course of  construction at Okanagan Landing all  summer and another has been roofed  in. It was first thought that the company purposed putting in slips at the  various places of call for their steamers along the lake and convey cars by  scow to those peiints and thus simplify  shipping, but as no slips are yet in  sight and the shipment of fruit is well  under way, one is forced to believe  that there is some other object iu view.  Such scows would come in very handy  in conveying construction material  down the lake to this point. When  actual construction does begin, it will  doubtless start from the three points,  Midway, Penticton and Nicola, and  will be rushed to completion in short  order.  The object in working so quietly is  doubtless to avoid attracting the attention of the Great Northern which  is slowly exteueling its line up the Similkameen to Princeton, an object point  for a branch of the C.P.R. from Aspen  Grove, south of Nicola.  The Conservative nominating conventions for Vancouver and Victoria  were both held on the same day. Both  conventions were largely attended and  enthusiastic throughout, aud in both  the candidate was chosen on the first  ballot.-  In Vancouver there were three nominations, G. H. Cowan, C. E. Tisdall  and C. M. Woodworth. There were  117 ballots, of which Cowan geit 79,  Tisdall 58 and Woodworth 9, thus  electing Cowan on the first ballot.  Mr. Tisdall moved foi- making nominations unanimous, which was carried  by a standing vote.  Cowan is an able, popular candidate  and is one'of the ablest and best champions of Better Terms in the province.  Vancouver therefore owes it to the  rest of the province to place him at  the head of the poll.  In Victoria the nominations were G.  Hi Barnard and J. L. Beckwith. The  convention was a most representative  one, and the Institute Hall was packed  to the doors with an enthusiastic  crowd. /Without any preliminaries Mr.  G. H. Barnard and Mr. J; L. Beckwich,  who opposed Hon. W. Templeman at  the last electiem, were placed in nomination. While speeches were delivered by' Mr. Martin Burrell, Premier  McBride and others, t the ballots were  counted and resulted us follows,:  Barnard, 423; Beckwith, 127.  'On'--motion'- of Mr. Beckwith, the  nomination was made unanimous.  INTERESTING  MEMORIAL  To Be Contributed to Simon  Fraser Celebration  by  * Oregon Historical,  Society.

S.���������Electors of  Lunenburg county, to the number of  1309, gathered here yesterday to hear  R. L. Borden deliver his first speech  on his tour of the maiitime provinces.  He was given a good reception. Only  a brief reference was made to the  Colchester election case, Mr. Borden  declaring with an emphasis which left  no doubt, that he denounced political  corruption, no matter,by whom practiced. "I prefer defeat in an honest  election rather than victory dishonestly gained," he concluded amid cheers.  Mr. Borden occupied himself chiefly  with a discussion of the Liberal administration of the past year, accusing the  ministers of falseness towards the people who had elected I hem ; of extravagance anel wasteful expenditure in all  branches of the government; and of  shameful truckling to party heelers.  He appealed strongly for purity in elections and for he mesty in administration.  WANT OLD TIMERS' PICTURES.  The following   communication   will  explain itself.

It was a trifle too late for the issue  of that week, and 'the strenuousness  of Labor Day week crowded it out of  last week's issue ; but as a joke never  grows old for lack of telling, and. this  is apparently only a joke, no harm will  be  done by holding it back this long :  "Down in the valley bottom they are  in the habit of claiming that Keremeos  Station   is   the  HUB.    When   wild-  man Ryan loaded up on'Monday-with  Keremeos Station   booze  and armed  himself  with a shot-gun, the various  directions in which inhabitants made  for the hills and the tall timber,  illustrated the  'spokes.1   Everybody said  that Royer did a little piece of fancy  sprinting that discounted any  trotter  in  his stable, and  the route he took  corning hack home was meant to illustrate the   ' fellows';    they ��������� were  all  'tires,' but not till they got beyond  shot-gun  range."

Victoria, August 25th, 190S.  Dear Sir,���������We are anxious to get  photographs of the pioneers of your  District for an historical exhibition to  be held at New Westminster din-ins:  the Fall Fair there (Sept; 29th to Oct.  3rd, inclusive), for the purpose of celebrating the one hundredth anniversary  of the coining of Simon Fraser down  the river bearing his name : and afterwards to be placed in the government  building as a permanent record.  I was sometime ago appointed Commissioner by the Government to organize the celebration, and have already  received between five hundred and one  thousand pictures in all, including  many old. views in various parts'of the  province.  Old pictures and photographs of  pioneers or other objects of historical  interest will, if desired, be returned immediately after the exhibition is over.'  To be available for the purpose they  must be sent without delay, as it takes  considerable time to arrange, mount,  name and catalogue all the exhibits.  Your interest and co-operation are  inviteid so far as your district is concerned. Photographs should be sent  to me by registered mail eir express.  Yours faithfully,  R. E. Gosxell,  Archivist, and Commissioner  Simon Fraser Exhibit.  HEDLEY GUN CLUB  BAGGED  A  BIG  'UN.  The  Similkameen   Star   Hands   Out  Short but Able-bodied Roast.

Harris, of the Vernon  "Okanagan," mention of whom was  made in last week's Gazette, doesn't  appear to have been a.ble to convert  newspaper men in the Similkameen to  his way of thinking, for last week we  reproduced a paragraph from the  Trumpet, and this week the views of  the Princeton Star are given. In Hedley Mr. Harris did not accord to the.  Gazette the usual courtesy of a fraternal call and consequently we must get  our impressions of him at second hand.  The Star says:  "G. A. Harris, of the Vernon Okanagan, with his wife, was in town two  days last week, leaying'on Sunday for  Nicola. He is a political sennit and  forerunner of the great Duncan eif  woodgreen. Mr. Harris is a gentleman  of suave manner, at one- time traveller  for a balloon factory in Detreiit, Mich.,  which accounts for the gas quite noticeable in his conversation, then he  elesceneled to newspaper work and now  he is on the road again soliciting for  the firm of Laurier iv Co., who are  selling off stock as they expect to go ���������  out of business about Nov. 3rd. Mr.  Harris talked volubly but asked not  to be> ejnoted in the Star."  George   Cahill   Kills   Big   Black  Near Nickel  Plate.  Bear  George Cahill's prowess as a mighty  hunter  was not lessened any  by his  latest kill.    On Friday last he brought  into  town  the hide of an  enormous  black bear, which he killed the day he  fore on the trail between  his ranch at  Camp Rest and the Nickel Plate, which  points  are about a   mile anel a half  apart.    He  had  been up to the Nie:kel  Plate  with some vegetables,   when he  ran across the bear on  the  trail.    His  elog   took   after   the    bear,    nipping  | Bruin's heels, jumping clear whenever  the  bear turned around to show fight  and renewing the attack as soon as he.  attempted to make off again.    A little  of  this  performance   made   the   bear  take to a tree to get rid of this kind of  persecution.    One  of Squakirn's boys  came   along looking for   horses' and  Cahill despatched him to the cabin to  bring  his  rifle,   while he and the dog  stayed te> keep the bear  up   the  tree.  The Hedley gun club met on Friday  evening aud in addition te> the ordinary club business, passed the following  resolution which marks their appreciation eif the beautiful trophy now in  their possession :  Moved by D. Currie, seconded by L.  C. W. Rolls and resolved that the Hedley Gun Club express their hearty  thanks to L. W. Shatford M. P. P. and  their appreciation of the handsome  valuable trophy sent by him to this  club as winners of the trap shootiug  competition at Keremeos em Victoria  Day; anel they wish to assure him  that so handsome a trophy will spur  them on to fresh effort in order to defend it against all teams eligible to  compete for same.  THE HERALD'S OVERSIGHT.  /(Greenweioel Luelfcc.)  Once when Rudyard Kipling was a  boy he ran out on the yard arm of a  ship. "Mr. Kipling," yelled a scared  sailor, "your boy is on the yard arm.  anel if he lets go he'll drown." "Ah,"  The Indian boy returned shortly after-1 responded  Mr.. Kipling,   with a yawn.  wards with the rifle, anel then everything was soon all over with the bear*.  The skin, when viewed here after it  had been brought down, showed that  it had shortly before been the nice  black Sunday suit of a tyee among the  bear tribe, for il was pronounced by  experienceel big game hunters  to have  heen the  they hail seen.  " but he won't let go." This- incident,  also happened to .Mm Fiske. I loraero  Walpole, Napoleon l>onaparte, Dick  Tui-pin, Julius Cu'sar .and the poet  Byron, says the Washington Herald.

Some may look at the  situation wholly through party  spectacles and with them there  is little hope of doing anything  to induce sounder judgment and  more  patriotic   action.    Others  again go  wholly   for   tlie  man,  and often   they  are  as impervious to  reason  as  those 'wh,o  follow  blindly the   dictates  of  party, hut those  who  vote  the  man are  much  more  likely  to  be right  than the party voters.  The highest, type of  citizenship  will follow neither the one nor  the   other   beyond    a   certain  .point,  but will weigh both and  act for the best interests of the  province in which their lot may  be cast.    Measures should often  be  given   preference   over  the  man, but the voter -who has the  privilege of getting a suitable  man in  accord  with  the right  measures is in a fortunate position and should have little difficulty in deciding.  Now that the fiscal policies of  both parties in Canada are practically the same, both protectionist Conservatives and erstwhile free trade Liberals maintaining equally high tariffs, the  most important question before  the electors of British Columbia is that of Better Terms for  this province; and before this  question partyism should go  down. Every, British Columbian who has.the best interests  of the province, at heart should  make up his mind that the man  for whom he casts his vote is  sound on the question of Better  Terms for British Columbia.  The Dominion government  holds nineteen million dollars  that rightly belong to the people of this province for it was  collected from us by the dominion exchequer in excess of that  collected from the other provinces. Instead of being discriminated against by the Dominion  government this province deserves specially favorable treatment at the hands of the federal  administration, for the  cost of  {than in the the other provinces,  i and especially so when com-  ! pardon is made of the cost per   j-capita.    In our  roads,   for   ins-  ���������tance. where the population is  ;Si'j!li; scattered along  valleys  in   the  [mountains   a   greater   mileage  must be constructed and maintained, and the difficult barriers  that at times have to  be  overcome   in   the    construction   of  roads, adds additional cost.   The  The  same physical  disabilities  also tend to increase the cost of  other departments of the public  service in British Columbia, and  although these things have been  pointed out to tlie Laurier government at repeated  intervals  for the last eight or  ten  years,  little else than rebuff and ridicule has  been, received  at the  hands  of the  federal -premier.  On one occasion,  in   a flippant  jeering manner, he told one de-  legation that a province   which  claimed so much   wealth   could  not be badly  off; another,   he  told that they  had no mandate  from the people.    The  subservient seven no doubt encouraged  him in such an attitude, and not  until premier McBride brought  him to book at the  conference  of provincial premiers, would he  pay  any  attention   to   British  Columbia's claims, and then it  was only to offer this province  a mess of pottage in  the form  of $100,000 a year for ton years  as payment in full  of her claim  of $19,000,000, and tried'his.best,  out on the hustings for re-election and have to defend both  his own course in the many subservient votes he had given the  Ottawa government against the  interests of this province, and  the many instances of graft  and maladministration charged  against, the government. But  when' he comes to reflect on the  way that he along" with, many  others during the campaign of  1806, read to the electors Mul-  ock's famous speech in the  House of Commons -while introducing his bill to make it impossible for a member of parliament to be appointed to a position of emolument under ' the  government within two -years  after holding a. seat in parliament, and that gentleman's animadversion upon, the debasing  influences of such appointments,  it should make him feel a trifle  uncomfortable even in the occupancy of-so comfortable a billet  as the Vancouver postmaster-  ship.

Rumors are becoming more  persistent day by day that the  general election will be held on  Tuesday November 3rd. Should  this prove to be correct it is  most remarkable that Canada  and the United States should  both be voting on the same day  to determine which political  party should rule each country  during the next parliamentary  term, for that is the date fixed  by the constitution of the United  States for their general election.  Should this be merely a coincidence it is a very remarkable  one, and if it is not coincidence  but design on the part of the  Canadian premier, it is difficult  to see what object he had in  view. So far as Canada is concerned we have no fault to find  with Mr. Laurier for choosing  that date. In fact we like it  that way and hope that it is to  be taken as evidence that he is  coming around to see the advisability of having as many elections on the same day as possible.

When cattle ranching, which employed but si/few hands, was the only  paying industry in the. Similkameem,  and tins worked-oufc placer diggings  had' been abandoneel, it was a vei'V.  Sparse population which this district  could, main tain, because of the laok-eVf  transportation and the isolated position of the- valley: , It is true it had a  perfect climate and fertile lauds upon  which grew tho native grasses that  fattened the herds which were driven  out over tha mountain passes to market; but agriculture on a paying basis  under such conditions was wholly out  of the question, and for decade after  de.ca.de little was grown, whether in  grain,vegetable's or fruits, beyond what  was reeluired to supply the- local wants  .of'.-those engaged in cattle ranching.  '��������� Mineral Wealth Proved Salvation.  Now we have a railway grade at our  door, and the mineral wealth in the  hills surrounding Hedley was the one  thing which above all others demonstrated to railway capital that there  was here; something for which to build,  for had it not been for the work clone  on the Nickel Plate arid the inducements held out to'railway companies,  they would never- have thought eif  building in here. 1ndeed the president  of the Great Northern lias said so.  What Was There To Show ?  As early as 1877 the late Dr. Dawson,  in his general report on the geology of  the Similkameen, referred in most favorable terms to the geological conditions prevailing here, long before any  prospector had seta stake. Subsequent'  events .demonstrate the correctness of  his views, and closer geological study  than Dr. Dawson wa.s able to give in  his hurried trip through new territory,  has since shown that in ages gone by  nature prepared here the ideal conditions for deposition of mineral wealth,  and also did. some fine topographical  engineering to attend means feir winning the ores..-    .     .  Conditions spoUen of by Dr. Dawson  were readily 'recognized ten years ago  by M. K. Rodgers when he arrived on  the ground and bonded the Nickel  Plate group. This marked the beginning of a new era for the Similkameen,  and with the work eif development and  the subsequent extraction of values,  Hedley became the main centre, of population for the district���������the pay office,  the entrepot, the town of the full  dinner-pail.  Extent and Value of Hedley's Mineral  Field.  While preliminary reports published  in government blue books by Mr.  Charles Camsell, who was in charge of  the party from the geological survey  which spent two years studying the  geology and ore deposits of the camp,  has made some reference to the extent  of mineralization, it is well known  that Mr. Camsell has modified his first  impressions on that subject and concurs in the view of a much wider area  of pay values than that which his  work at first covei-ed.  The. area can he roundly stated to  extend at least eight miles north of  Hedley, 7 miles south, 7 or 8 miles east  and 5 miles west.  Mr. Camsell refers to the camp as  the greatest producer of gold alone of  any camp in British Columbia.  Mr. M. K. Rodgers has spent marry  years and travelled many thousand  miles up and down the continent looking for mines, examining and sampling  everything offered him, and has frankly volunteered the statement that "nowhere between Alaska and Mexico  does he know of any fifteen miles of  undeveloped territory that will sample  equal to the fifteen miles of which the  Nickel Plate, is the centre." This is  indued a very strong testimonial from  Mr. Rodgers and carries a wealth of  meaning to those who have money to  invest, whether in mineral lands, real  estate or business ventures. Assuming  this to be true  (and of its truth there  isino'reasonable ground for doubt) the  possibilities for Hedley are 'enormous';-'  for with so" wide extent eif pay ground  with vast ore; bodies, the values of  which range from low grade to medium and (in soine few spots where special agencies for concentration of  values have beep at work) to high  grade, there is only one outcome to be  expected and that is the. existence here  at an early date of a busy, prosperous  mining town eif several thousand id- ���������  habitants.  What Hedley Has To Offer.  Not always has nature been so kind  iiSsto locate her treasure vaults where  the conditions for living are so pleasant. Often rich mining regions have  brought together large population  where tlie climate -is"unbearable and  natural conditions for sanitation such  that the-town has scarcely started un-  til'the. inevitable harvest of a perilous  death rate: is being; reaped. But in  Hedley it is a -well-known fact that  even in the absence of the commonest  precautions in the way of sanitation  there is no town in the district has so  clean a health bill; for while cvery  other place- shows the existence more  or less of typhoid, Hedley has been  absolutely"free, from this scourge. The  reason for this is obvious. The town  is built on an immense gravel bed believed by geologists to be erf many  hundred feet in thickness with a large  swift-flowing river at her door and a  steady easy slope of the tow.nsite towards the river of about ������%, making  the future question of sewage disposal  the simplest possible, by means of sewer and septic tanks. In the water supply there are no death-breeding wells  but a system of. waterworks providing  pure running water from mountain  streams.  While these conditions mean so  much for the health -of the town they .  also may mean much-for its industrial  advancement. The task of winning  values from' the immense ore deposits  in the viciuity precludes the idea of  depending upon the present tramway  system of ore haulage, and the hear  future will in all probability see the  inauguration of a. comprehensive plan  for tunnelling the mountain, and thus  permit of handling large quantities of  ore at minimum cost. To this end the  Similkameen river will be harnessed so  as to provide ample power for operating the various properties in the camp,  and -when this is accomplished, Hedley  will have come: to her own.  What Has Already Been Accomplished.  When Mr-. Rodgers took hold eif the  Nickel Plate, less than ten years ago,  not $50 worth of work had been done  on it. There were no roads for the  transportation of supplies to the mine,  and these had to be built. The colossal  task of overcoming these difficulties  had to be tackled by the one concern  which had undertaken to make this a  producing camp, but the sequel has  shown that the mineral wealth exist-  ant here, justified it all. When people  who are disposed to be exacting ask  why the opening up of the camp has  not been more general, and why other  properties are not developed to the  same extent as the Nickel Plate, they  should also in fairness admit that it is  a wonder that so much has been done  in the face of such disadvantage as the  remoteness from railways.  Two Millions in Bullion Taken Out.  While no definite figures have been  given out as to the total bullion production from this camp, sufficient  data, directly and indirectly, is obtainable to warrant the statement that by  the end of 1908 two million dollars in  gold will be the output, and there is  greater probability of the real amount  exceeding that sum than in falling  short of it. What the district has been  living on may be learned from the fact  that the outlay in wages and other  things necessary to produce this a-  monnt of bullion has provided sustenance not only to the people of Hedley  but the whole valley.  This being the record of one mine, a  faint idea, is obtained of what the towir  is to be when there are half a dozen  e>r   more. THE   HEDLEY, GAZETTE,   SEPTEMBER  17,  190*3.

Charleton is certainly an artist  in dishing up both'twisters and hot'  'uns, anel moreover makes friends by  his courteous manner in the box and  on the field. By the by, it would .appear from the Spokesman-Review that  a record in pitching was established  here by Killelay, viz: 42 strike-outs in  IS innings.

Of course the winter season is  all right for track-laying in the Similkameen valley, but nevertheless it  would look much better to see the-  track down before the snow flies.  The present requirement of the game  laws-which makes a close season.for  willow grouse until the end (if September'is difficult to observe. Both willow  grouse and blue grouse are now down  'in the bottoms and it is difficult to tell  them apart until they are shot. A  better plan would be to take a certain  distance up the mountain side, above  which the. willow,, grouse are seldom  seen to go, or else-.delay' all grouse  shooting to the end of September.  The automobile which has reside*!  with us for the past .month, in rain  and shine, in sickness, and in health,  with semi-occasional infantile ailments  and sometimes with those pertaining  to more advanced years, pulled out on  Thursday evening last hound for the  Vernon fair. It is said that it was to  be disposed of by raffle or drawing.  The machine is a big concern that carries a good-sized load, and may come  handy for some rancher in the upper  Okanagan who may want to travel a  bit faster than his neighbors and is  unlucky enough to have tlie luck to  win it.  An order was granted in the supreme  court at Vancouver for examination of  M. K. Rodgers either in Seattle or  Vancouver in connection with the suit  now pending. The Province, in referring to the order, gets mixed concerning the points at issue in the case. Mr.  Rodgers' interest in the property, so  far as we understand it, is undisputed.  The questions at issue involve issuance  to Mr. Rodgers of the stock representing his interest, transfer by him to the  company of certain properties in his  name, and it is saiel also valuation of  Mr. Rodgers' interest in apportionment  of profits and expense connected with  operations to date.  Robt. Stevenson, who got the worst  of the accident on the, crooked hill last  week, is getting along nicely. For a  few days he was finding new sore  spots, hut the lame shoulder is doing  nicely, and while the cut in the forehead showed signs for a few days of  developing into "two lovely black  eyes," the face has regained its natural  expression and he can spin a yarn on  old times with all his old-time vivacity.  Reports from Princeton are to the effect that all the others are going about  chaffing each other em the mishap.  Angus Lamont got a cut on the top of  the head, but is little the. worse. The  invulnerable Hughie Campbell, who  was with Lamont in the cart and took  the same flight into the air before  lighting on top of the running horses,  came off without cut or scratch, anel  after spending-a, couple of days with  "Bob," started for home on Friday  morning.  The mill and business of the Penticton Lumber Syndicate have changed  hands, the buyers being Messrs. Campbell aud Kay. Mr. Campbell has been  foreman at the mill for the past eighteen   months.  We were agrecably^surprised at the  appearance of an automobile ou our  streets one day last week. It seemed  to create a vast amount of interest  among the Indians on the reserve, and  the elogs in town.  The Fire Brigade realized seventy-  five dollars'from the concert and various booths and stalls. This- amount  will more than pay for a, fire bell..  Much credit is due the ladies and the  fire committee for the successful man  ner'in which this .entertainment was  ��������� ge>t up. .���������"'���������'  The chief topic erf conversation here  at present is "railway." The fever-  seems to have caught hold of our Main  ���������street barber, Ben Baker, pretty badly.  Mr. Baker,, besides being a tonsorial  artist, is quite an exponent of the various sorts of wharves which are to be  built in and around Peutictpri in the  future. He has been studying the  railway question-' lately, and is now  giving free lectures daily. Of course  rumor, is responsible for much of the  talk, but this time there are facts as  well as at the time' of writing there is  a survey party numbering fifteen locating anel staking the line run by Mr.  Odell nine years ago. .* The party is in  charge, of Mr. Henderson, and although  they outfitted at Grand Forks I think  meist probably they are working in the  interests eif the C.P.R. Very recently  another engineer connected with a  prominent firm of railroad contractors  made a cursory survey of the same  line. Mr. Henderson's party should be  in town before the end of the week if  the weather keeps fine.  A new secret society was formed in  town hall Friday; at least I imagine it  must be secret, as the proposed members were all notified personally of the  meeting place and time of meeting, no  public notices making tlie announcement being displayed anywhere.  Thinking I might possibly get some  information J. called at the Press office  to-day and found that they were as  much in the dark regarding the matter-  as myself. Now this only whetted my  curiosity so I persevered or I might  even say pestered two or three people  until I had got the following information : Mr. Huyoke appears to be the  chief conspirator, he for some reasons  unknown having conceived the brilliant idea of calling a private meeting to  form a public association, viz: "The  Penticton Turf Club."  Up to the present I have been unable  to find out the. cause for all the secrecy  ���������whether Mr. Huycke has any scheme  on foot to surprise the racing world  with a string of dark horses or whether he only wanted his own picked  officials of the club, it is hard to say.  At any rate as the people of Penticton  have subscribed the amount with  which the ground was purchased. I  think it a very poor policy not to give  them the chance of selecting their own  turf club officials.  Penticton, Sept. 14th, 1008.  4 I  I   WE AIM TO SATISFY   !
