Deunis, of the Caiiadial Pacific, railway in payment for land giants made  to the British Columbia Suuthein and  Columbia & Wesfern railways, and  tlie lands become once more the property of the province. The lands 'comprise 2,550,000! acres granted to the  British Columbia Southern and 1,225,-  000 acres to. the Columbian & Western.  The price paid is 45 cents per acre,  which; would make $1,510,000. but  against this the province had a credit  of $401^)00 paid as interest on lands oil;  theShuswap & Okanagan railway,  jp-rit (if the bargain embodied in the  legislation of last session being that  the Canadian Pacific railway should  refund this amount.  The Columbia & Western lands are  resumed subject to F. August Heinze's  ownership of an undivided half interest in 580,000 acres. Heinze, during  his vis-it here last week, suggested that  the. government should buyv his half  interest from him and the '.government  is supposed to be not altogether- unfavorable'to the ideii, but no price, was  fixed, in fact, the 'matter did not go beyond the suggestion.

M  ARTHUR CLARE,  Secretary  Interesting Outcome of Accident to T. J.  Armstrong  - (Oroville Gazette)  Dr. W. T. Schwabland spent two or  three days at Greenwood, B.

Armstrong in the  British "Columbia court for his fee. and  .'��������� -Vancouver,  B.  C. ;Sept.  20th- -The  contract for the construction of about  ,42��������� miles of railway between Coalmont  and    Coquihalla    summit    has    been  awarded  by theVancouver, Victoria  & Eastern Railway company to Guthrie,  McDougail"& Co;>\ Work according to 'the terins of contract must be  completed by iJhly iiext.     The con-.  tractors will get  thcil- 'then and equipment on  the  work   in; the next few  days.      With   this  sti;ip   of   railroad:  completed  by July 1, 1913,  early completion  of the  remainder of the strip  from Coquihalla summit into Hope is  predicted.     The  latter,' piece of road  is that which tire Great Northern and;  Kettle  Valley lines wish   to build and  which  the  railway commission   now  has before it for consideration.    Until  tho railway  commissioners  act,  the  completion  of the line.from  the sum  mit to Hope is a matter of conjecture,  it is probable that'with' the decision of  the railway commission  will come the  announcement from tlie Canadian Pa-:  cifie  railway as to  where the bridge  across   the   Fraser-  river,   connecting  the main  1 itie of the 'Canadian Pacific  railway and the Kettle   Valley line,  will lie built.

Office  on  North   Main   Street  claim for damages in tho sum mentioned. The doctor was not fortunate  in his selection of a barrister, and his  evidence, which was altogether documentary, failed to reach Greonwood  in time to be introduced before the  court, through no fault of his. Things  looked dubious for the doctor, as upon  advice of his attorney he did not summon any witnesses, and he had to play  the role of lawyer, cross-exaniing witnesses and making his own plea. In  tlie end the judge submitted the case  for more testimony to a commission  composed of three Spokane physicians  Dr. Schwabland selecting one and ..Mr.  Armstrong two. The litigants will appear before the commission in October  and the result of the case will no doubt  hinge upon the report of that body.  at Ruby creek' In"1 the estimation of  engineers who are familiar with the  count!y in that vieinity, Hope is the  logical position for the bridge. The  amount of the contract just closed by  Guthrie. McDougail:���������& Co., is said to  be about $1,500,000.  A SPLENDID MOVE  Peirticton, B. C, Sept. 21.��������� After  years of failure and fruitless effort  there seems to be a prospect of the  earlyjopeninir-iip of the Indian reserve  on the west side of the Okanagan river opposite Penticton. This re.-.erve  contains some 4S,000 acres in all, but  only a small portion is close to Penticton and fit for fruit growing. The  reeve and council are negotiating with  Dr. McKenna. of Ottawa, a special  commissioner, who is investigating  Indian affairs in the province, and  with every prospect of success.'  Perhaps nothing in recent years has  held back the development of the district more than this large strip of land  so close to town, lying locked up and  undeveloped. Dr. McKenna's idea is  to prevail on the government to subdivide the land and sell it to the actual  settler, spending the proceeds in bettering the conditions of the Indians.

M  Now that a reasonable degree of fire  protection has  been  secured and the  town is that much better off, there vti-  niains  but oik; other thing for .which  the Gazette has in the past striven to  obtain and that  is the fencing of the  cemetery  which  in its  exposed state  has for years been a standing disgrace  to the community.     We are glad to  learn,  and as a  member of the rifle  club   we are  pleased   to  heartily endorse, the proposal  to use the balance  standing in the  bank at the  credit of  the rifle club as the nucleus  of a fund  to put a fence  around   the cemetery.  The  rifle club has been  dormant  for  several  years and   there, was no sense  in leaving  the balance there doing no  good to any person.    At various times  the proposal was made to have a day's  shooting and   use it as prize money to  be shot for and thus get rid of it. That  proposal  which  always appeared too  muchlike that of the proverbial money  which    has   been   credited   with   the  power- to ���������'burn a hole in the pockets"  of a  certain   class   of   ne'er-do-weels  was one which we always tried to wet  blanket, and we are most pleased now  to know   that   better   counsels have  j prevailed  and the surviving members  lot" the old  club   are agreeable   to a  I course   which  will do them   far more  credit.    It  has been   learned too  that  there is a feeling among the miners on  the hill   to raise some funds   up there  to  help out   with it and   we are sure,  that  there  are  very  few  among the  townspeople who would not be willing  to  chip in  and do  their  share  to  remove   the stigma   which has  too long  lain   upon    the   community.     By all  means   let the   matter   now   be   taken  hold of in  earnest and not  allowed to  cool until  this desirable end is accomplished.  Ottawa, Sept, 20th.��������� Canada is now  ninth oh the tonnage list of maritime  standards of the world, as published  in a report for 1011 just issued by the  department of marine and fisheries.  The ot her eigh t, begi n n'i ng at the "top,  are: Great Britain, Germany, United  States. Norway, Fiance. Russia, Italy  and Japan.  The  total nurnber of vessels on the  register  books of the Dominion at the  close of the year  wasS,0SS, measuring  770.440   tons, a marked gain over the  total for the previous year.    The number of steamers is  given as 3,444, with  a. .gross..tonnage .of '.588,741.    .Estiina-  ting the average  value to  be .$80 per  ton   the  value of  the., net registered  tonnage at  the end of the  year would  be  $23,113,3S0.    New  vessels added to  tbe list during the year numbered 839,  with a net register of 27,730 tons. Estimating  the value of the  new tonnage  at $45 per ton   the value of the  new  ���������vessels is $1,14S.120.     During the year  2S9  vessels  were   removed, from  the  register-.     Of these. 37 were wrecked,  15  stranded, 12 lost. 10 abandoned at  sea, 12 foundered and 31 reported "out  of existence."     The department estimate's that 41,447 men and boys found  employment on ships of Canada during the year.  Quebec is the third important niarr-  tiirre province, according to the list of  registered ships, having a total of 1,511  sailing ships and steamers. The other-  provinces appear in the list as follows:  Nova Scotia, 2.105; New Brunswick.  966; Ontario, 2,014; Prince Edward Island. 140; British Columbia, 1.227;  Saskatchewan, 5: Manitoba 96; and the  Yukon Territory 15.  Victou'a,  Sept.   li)���������That if the Dominion   government sees   its way to  establish   a   department   of mines  it  should   include  a   branch  devoted   to  seismology,  was the  text of a- resolu-,  tion   passed by  the  Canadian Mining  Institute  in session here to-day.    The  matter arose  following a  lecture  by  F.   Napier Denison,   the local government seismologist, in which he proved  to the satisfaction of his  hearers that  a relation existed   between the earth's  tremors  and colliery  disasters,     Mr.  Denison  explained   to  the institute a.  new seismograph which lie had invented,   which   recoids   not   only   world  shaking  earthquakes  but also movements of the earth.     He has discovered   through   elaborate  statistics that  the years having the most colliery disasters are those  in which the greatest  number of earthquakes were recorded.  He also  stated that research work in  this science  might make  possible  in  the . futtue the   prediction   of  earthquakes  and   the  extent  of area   they  would cover,   which would be of practical value in the construction of buildings.    The convention  concluded   today with a. banquet.  ;A NOTABLE DOCUMENT  Ulster's    Declaration Takes a  Historic.

Penticton.  B. C. Sept. 20. ��������� In  connection   with   the  preparations being  made   by the  local committee  for the  reception   and entertainment of H. R.  11.. the Duke of Connaught, who will  visit   Penticton on the fourth of October, a  situation has  developed  which  enipathasizes  the democratic  tendencies of the duke.   The municipal clerk.  .1. Gardener,   wrote  to  Col. Lowtlrer,  military secretary, informing him that  it was the wish of the committee that  the dress worn on that occasion should  be that  suitable to an informal  function, and enquiring  if the duke would  be at all  likely to consider it a lack of  courtesy  if these  ideas  wen; carried  out.  Col. Lowther replied to the effect  that it was  the wish of the duke that  the   whole  affair should  be of as  informal a nature as possible, and seeing  that  a  motor  trip  to  several   of the  large ranches  in the district had been  arranged,    he   hoped    that   everyone  would   wear  '"country clothes," as  he  would do himself.

The old Pinnacle property at Looiuis  has been given considerable 'development work during the present year.  The old Pinnacle claim in earlier  times was noted for the wonderful  picture specimens it turned out and  an effort is now being made to locate  the chute at some depth.  There are over- twenty men at work  on the Golden Zone in this camp and a  ditch is being put in to supply mill  water to the stamp mill which it is  their intention to run this winter on  ore obtained during development.

That sort  of performance looks like sailing very  close to tbf! danger line.  The fall assizes are coming off on  October 7th at Vernon and sundry  Hedleyites will have to attend to give  evidence, in the stealing case sent up  for trial. These are little legacies that  Labor Day invariably leaves to remember it by and that make i he  more thoughtful begin to wonder how  .much is gained by holding the celebrations at all.  Mrs. J. A. Brown of Kereineos was  a visitor to Hedley last week and was  accompanied by George Herald, formerly of the Chronicle staff, and his  friend, Art Wells, of Winnipeg, On  Wednesday they made the trip to the  mine returning by the last car in the  evening and next morning they made  the return to .Kereineos in short Older  in -Mr. Jones' auto.  Stanford S. Davis of Vancouver, gen-  eralmanager of the British Columbia  Life 'Insurance Co. which is the latest  financial concern of the kind to be  launched in Canada, was in town this  week with Mr. Shatford who is vice-  president of the company. Mr. Davis  is well satisfied with the success which  has so far attended till"operations of  the company, the amount of business  they have done being almost unprecedented.  The Grand Forks Agricultural Association are holding their third annual  fall fair on Thursday and Friday Sept.  28th and 27th, and have issued a very  interesting programme of events in  the way of special attractions, the  principal of which are in the line of  race track events. Grand Forks itself  is somewhat of a drawing card in view  of the improvements now going on  there.  Bras:  Mrs. J. D  last week  Baxter, her son  Moosejaw to see  she found   him  bringing back  returned to Hedley  with her AV.  whom she went to  On her arrival there  ready   to   start   for  Colorado where he had been ordered  to go by his doctor. She did not like  the idea of having him go there alone  and especially as the doctor was pic  pared to admit that the climate here  might suit him quite as well., Asa  result lie was persuaded to come here  instead and since his arrival he has  been a great deal better.  A. Winklei:showed the Gazette some  apples plucked from one of the'trees  on his ranch and they certainly were  beauties. He was not sure of the  variety but.the apple resembles the  Hood River very -much... It is a large  apple, firm in texture,' of fine flavor  and might be classed sub-acid. The  skin is yellowish streaked plentifully  with red and .making' an altogether  very handsome apple. Mr. Winkler  says the trees have had very indifferent care but when they can produce  apples of the sample shown it is evidence that he has a ranch which will  enable him to go in extensively for  fruit raising. In altitude it is less  than 1000 feet above Hedley.  L.   W.   Shatford,  M. P. P.,   accom-  western manager  N. Thompson, tin.  for Cainniell Laird & Co. the groat  steel manufacturers of Sheffield, England, spent Sunday in town and took  advantage, of the opportunity to pay a  visit to the Nickel Plate mine accompanied by Mr. Gibbons of Vancouver.  Hedley is a point which Mr. Thompson always takes in on his itinerary in  this part of the district and it is a  point where his firm are well known  as their shoes and dies have been used  extensively in crushing the ore of the  Nickel Plate.  T.  C.  Brooke  Princeton    was  the noultrynian of  in town yesterday.  Some, of his customers here have been  trying to increase their stock from  his yards but he is unable at present  to supply their wants as he has sold  oft* all the birds he can spare and now  he would like to buy hack some that  he has sold if he could get them. Exceptional laying strains are not easily  got and when the. public find out who  has them the owners sometimes have  more trouble to get keeping their  stock than to find sale for them.  The people of Grand Eorks are firmly of the belief that a good town like  a good man cannot be kept down. If  the town cannot grow in one way it  can in another. Fearing that the  Dotikhobours may swamp them in  population the residents have proclaimed against race suicide in a most  substantial way. In about ten days  there were no less than eight births in  the town. All of them were girls too  except one lone boy and that will  mean a further attraction for more  population later on.

Shatford and by Mr.  Davis, general manager of the British  Colnmbia Life Insurance, company of  which Mr. Shatford is vice-presidont,  came, in from Penticton on Monday  evening in Bentley's auto. Mr.- and  Mrs. Shatford are both looking well  although Mr. Shatford has had a busy  summer of it and has stuck very closely to his work as manager of the Bank  of Vancouver. In spite of his plans to  escape hay fever this year by remaining on the coast dining the months of  June, July and August when he is  subject to it in the dry belt, his old  enemy laid him by the heels when he  was crossing the continent and he developed a. beautiful attack of it between Winnipeg and North Bay which  he did not manage to shake off until  he got down to Halifax. Nr*xt time  he has to cross the continent in those  pi-ohi.bif.ed months it may be advisable for- him to hunt, out a new northwest passage all for himself and go  round hy Behriug straits and the  polar seas. He had a. business engagement which took him back to Penticton on Tuesday but he expects to be  through here again today or to-morrow on his way up the valley.  Mr. C. H Brookes was seen a couple  of days ago by the Gazette with reference to  the matter said to be pending  in   the   United   States   courts   about  which  reference  was  made   in   these  columns two weeks ago.    Mr. Brookes  says that  he has had   no coinimuiicn-  tion   whatever  from   the parties who j  were alleged   to he making the charge  of   einbe7,zleinent   against    him    nor  from any of their legal representatives  nor from  United States  government  authorities,    and the   fact   that   this  amount of time has been allowed to go  past    with   nothing   from   them   but  sphinx-like silence   is further evidence  that  the whole affair was a frame-up  to injure him.     Neither has Constable  Sproule received any orders from his  chief  to do  anything  in   reference to  the matter  nor any warrant from  the  other side to   be executed, and a suspicious feature  that makes it look all  the more fishy is that telegrams which  were   received   about the   time of  the  arrest  in Oroville  are  strangely  contradictory,    some   specifying   an   eni-  bezzleinent   of   $100,000   and   another  making it $25,000.   In a. country where  the spirit of habeas corpus which they  had   handed down   to them   from  old  English law is supposed to obtain,they  have  funny  ways  of  trifling   with   a  man's liberty.
