ROSE  Proprietor  ^ (Greenwood Ledge.)  Tuesday evening about nine o'clock  Iavo 'masked men���������supposed to be the  two hold-ups who have been ope'rating  in the district���������entered C. L. Thomet's  hotel at Midway.  Just as they entered*  the door he reached for his gun beneath the bar and he and the  bandits  commenced   shooting.      Two   bullets  struck Thomet and it'is'believed one of  the hold-ups was wounded. .There are  so  many conflicting stories, we print  below   the   evidence , of   William   B.  Bower,'rth eye-witness, which may be  considered fairly accurate, taking into  consideration the natural-excitement  of a man not used to gun. plays.   The  evidence was given at the coroner's inquest held yesterday by Coroner Black  with the following jury:   T. J. Hardy  (foreman), Jas. Kerr,  W. L. Melville,  Wm. Tippie, Geo. Schulli and S. A.  Crowell. ' <  Wm. B. Bowei^sworn. Am a banker, reside in Grand Forks. I was at  Thomet's, hotel close, to or a few minutes earlier than 9:30, o'clock in the  evening. Deceased, Archie MeDougall  and George Henderson were, in room.  I was standing at north end of bar  looking from door. I casually, turned  aud saw two" masked men. They had  blue masks on. Each had gun pointing towards deceased. Deceased was  standing at end of bar about eighteen  feet from me. I saw a motion of deceased to pick up pistol, which was  near his hand. Deceased picked same  up and fired instantaneously in direction of two masked men, who returned  the fire instantaneously by two shots.  Can't say which man fired or whether  both fired. The. -mau nearest me covered me first for a moment, then  dropped his gun to his side, then both  went out of the door quietly as'they  came in. I made for the wall nearest  the street so that if they shot back into room I would not be exposed to fire.  Saw that they might still pot me, and  hurried to dining room, deceased being  crouched beside door, I presumed in  position to fire if they showed up again.  I \v;ent into room past him, and said  "don't shoot; it is me." He didn't answer. After passing him I went around  to back of sideboard thinking it a place  of safety, aud deceased was on his back  bleedingfrom wound in neck. MeDougall and Mrs. Thomet"then rushed in.  To Jury���������Thomet was partly covered  by bar. Think Thomet .fired another  shot, but it had no effect as men had  gone. After the two "shots fired by  masked 'men Thomet crouched down  behind the bar where he'was standing,  and, I believe, fired a. shot from that  position. Then he-backed into dining  door, crouching down. The shot in  dining room was fired before I left  wall. Deceased did not.speak after  masked men appeared. Deceased did  not speak to men and men did not  speak to him. Do not know if masked  men went round to front part aud shot  into dining room. Do not know who  masked men were. Both about same  size. Seemed well-sized men in dark  clothes. Eye-holes in line and guns  well in line. Deceased had gun in his  hand when I passed him going into  dining room.  Dr. J. E. Spankie examined the body  and found two bullet wounds on the  body, one on right side between 3rd  and 1th ribs, and the other on left side  through neck just above collar bone.  The latter was cause of death."  A number of the residents of the  town were on the spot a few minutes  after the shot, Will Melville, being the  first. He saw the men as they were  making off. It is thought the intention was to hold up the Spokane, as  011V3 of the Saulter brothers saw a couple of men come towards the house  three times from a vacant lot opposite,  but each time they were disturbed by  people passing. The Saulters were  prepared with shot guns, one on the.  verandah upstairs and.the other in the  bar. ��������� They expected the hold-up to  come oil", and were waiting patiently  for it when they heard the shots.. They  at once went to Thomet's place, but  were loo late to get a shot. A posse of  between twenty and thirty men, under  W. J. Devitt, of Nelson, with bloodhounds, started yesterday evening.   .1.  HISTORIC PAGEANT  FOR 1910  British ColumbiaWill Emulate  Example Set in Quebec  Tercentenary.  SIMON FRASER'S DISCOVERS  R. W. BROCK VISITS'HEDLEY.  The Geological Survey Party Have Visit  From  Director.  ".  MR. HICKLING INTERVIEWED.  Of the River Will Be , Principal Event  Celebrated, But As Year 1910 Also  \ Marks 50th Anniversary of Gold Discovery on Fraser and 25th Anniversary of Completion of C. P. R., All  Will Be Blended in the Pageants.  The year 1910 will he a notable one  for New Westminster and for the entire province of British- Columbia for  in that year a gorgeous pageant is to  celebrate a number of gra.it events in  the history of the province. For this  reason the full celebration of the Simon  Fraser centennial has been postponed  and only a historical exhibit has been  arranged for the Provincial exhibition.  In 1910 the events of one hundred  years and more ago will be re-enacted,  if present plans go not astray, on the  banks of the Fraser river, when voy-  ageurs, representative of Simon Fraser  and his band of adventurers, will descend the river to the mouth as of old.  The discovery of Vancouver Island,  and thearrival of the C. P. R, at the  coast, with other notable events of  provincial history will be included in  the pageant, the carrying out of which  will be largely in the hands of the Provincial government. No details have  been arranged, but the broad outline  of the celebration has been informally  decided upon, and it is expected that  the pageant will follow linos similar to  the recent Quebec celebration.  The long-expected visit from R. W.  Brock, acting director of the Geological Survey, took place last week, but  unfoitunately the time at his disposal  was far too short. Mr. Brock came in  with Mr. Templeman, the Dominion  Miiiister of Mines, and was met here  by Mr. Camsell. Beyond examination  of maps aud plans .at Mr. Can-sell's  camp and. a hurried visit to the Nickel  Plate he had no other opportunity of  seeing the camp; but as Mr. Brock put  it, he "knows the trail now" and said  that it was "always an easier matter  to get over the ground again after  knowing the trail."  This was the first opportunity the  editor of the Gazette has had of meeting Mr. Brock for eleven years, or to  be" more accurate, not since the spring  of 1897, and we then left him at Kingston, Ont.,. in the throes of the spring  examinations of Queen's University  and the Kingston School of Mines,  where he had been lecturer in mineralogy during the preceding term.

While it. was known that Hon. Win.  Templeman, the federal Minister of  Mines, had been in the Kootenay and  Boundary districts, no announcement  had been given out that the Similkameen would form part of the itinerary,  .with Hedley as the objective point, until a telegram was received oh' Saturday forenoon by Mr. Camsell, from  Mr. Brock, the director of the geolgical  survey, that he would arrive in Hedley  by the evening's stage, accompanied  by Mr. Templeman,.minister ofjnines,  and his secretary Mr. Nicholas.  They arrived, accordingly, shortly  after five o'clock and proceeded to the  Hotel Similkameen, where they spent  about half an hour and met a few callers, after which they proceeded to the  office of the Daly Reduction Co. in  compliance with previous invitation  and had dinner, Mr. Templeman remaining there for the evening while  Mr. Brock, although it "was raining  and dai'-k, made a few calls in company  with Messrs. Camsell and Allen, of the  geological survey, and proceeded to  their camp to examine notes and records of the. season's work. On Sunday  morning they went up the tramway to  inspect the Nickel Plate mine, returning about mid-afternoon, after which  they left almost immediately by special  rig for Keremeos, where a private car  was awaiting them.  Boundary papers had it that they  intended to proceed from Hedley towards the main line of the C. P. B. by  way of Princeton and Nicola, but if  this had been thought of by them the  stage ride, from Keremeos to Hedley  caused them to change their plans, for  they went back to Keremeos.  since then we managed to miss each  other by a lew hours at Camp McKinney about 'A or -1 yeais later.  Mr. Brock, during^this interval, has  been "making good," and bv his own  merit has "risen to his present important   position.  '   Prior   to   1S97' Mr.  Block's geological field work had been  up north on the Abitibi   and about  James Bay, but his sphere of action on  the survey was shifted next year to  British Columbia and with the geology  of the mining sections of this province  ho has  been   closely   associated ever  since and has rendered excellent service. .    ���������  He discussed with us freely the work  and needs of the survey, whose crying  need at the present, he said, was more  men (that is more men who were capable.)   The appropriations for the survey werebecoining more liberal,  but  what is needed now is men to spend  the   money  efficiently,   so   that   the  country will receive due value therefor.  There were many' good science men  whose   attainments   and   capabilities  h.-'.d  taken  them across the line and  they were immersed in  various forms  of commercialism, thelnining industry  of the United States absorbing many  of them.    Some of these,   he believed,  could be brought'baek, but it might be  necessary to pay higher salaries than  had heretofore   been  allowed in  the  survey in order to do so, although he  was quite sure  that  some   of   them  would come for a good deal less than  they are now earning.     The science  departments of the various schools and  colleges could of course be counted on  to supply some, but of these a careful  weeding out was necessary-to find out  those who would prove, valuable men.  "Arthur Hickling, the well known  capitalist, is in the city and will be  here for the next week, after which  he will go^ to Princeton to look after  his collieries and other interests there.'  He arrived in New-York from London  six weeks since aud in the interim hits  visited St. Paul, Minneapolis*, Minn.T  London, Ont., aud other places.  "In speaking of,conditions in the old  country he-said that the people over  there have beeu giving themselves up  to events of different kinds and to  enjoying themselves. There has been  a succession of. interesting arfa.ii*-;, including the Pan-Anglican Synod, he  said, which drew churchmen from  many portions of the world. The horse  show this year was the most successful  ever held. 'Then we had the entente  cordiale, otherwise known as J he'  French exhibit, which drew immensely  and  was  a great success, < to say  PIONEERS  TO   MEET:  Similkameen To Be Honored With the  Meeting On This Occasion.  Continued <m Pnge Two.  Marcus Daly went put on Wednesday- of last week. It was his intention  to go up and have a look at the Golden Zone, and two mornings previous  he started out for that purpose in company with Messrs. Ross, Jones and  Holbrook, bub a down-pour of rain  which promised to make a. day,of it  caught: them when they were about a  couple of miles up the crock and compelled them to turn back.  The annual meeting of the Kettle  River and South Okanagan Pioneers'  Association will be held in the Central  hotel, Keremeos, this year on the. ISth  September. A large number will go  from this district.���������Greenwood Ledge.  The   Gazette   had    correspondence  with both secretary and president indicating that it would be held on loth,  and we took the liberty of expressing  a   preference for a  date  later in the  week,  so  in all probability the date  given by the Ledge is correct.     This  association was formed about 10 years  ago  and   was   originally   confined  to  those who came to  the Okanagan or  Boundary   in  1891 and prior to  that  date.   It has since been lengthened out  to take,.in  all who came  up to  1896.  This  being  the first time the meeting  has been held in the Similkameen, and  all old-timers of the Similkameen being  elegible for  membership   it is  hoped  that pioneers of Similkameen and lower Okanagan   will  be  there  in force,  which we have no doubt they will.    If  Frank   Riehter  and   Jimmy  Riordan  take iu hand to  drum   them  up,- this  meeting should prove a bumper one.  It is hoped also that by that time  that beastly Oroville stop-over will be  cut out, and that Saturday morning's  train will leave Keremeos for Spokane  instead of leaving Oroville so as to give  the Boundary contingent a. cbanco to  gel back home before Sunday.  nothing of che Marathon games and  races which caused the assembling of  immensely large audiences and in  which athletes" from*a number of the  leading countries participated.  " ' How about business? There is  nothing doing much, nor will there be  until the present Socialistic government of Great Britain ha*-, been retired.  The people have no confidence^in it.  As a result there is a dearth "of new  investments and it is difficult, to launch  the most promising enterprises. Say  a man intends to invest in breweries,  which are among the best paying form  of industrial enterprises. He now  hesitates about, parting with his cash  for brewery shares, lind for the reason  that he fears .that the present government may take a notion to confiscate  what he has invested in. Of course,  there is the house, of lords, which, is not  socialistic and-which is a safeguard.  Everybody, apparently, is against the  government, and in the by-elections  the government is losing even constituencies that have been liberal for* many  years, and it should 'hot be a great  while before the present government  is retired.'  "Just as soonas the-V. V. &��������� E. is  completed to Princeton Mr. Hickling  and his associates will begin outputting  coal from the collieries of the Vermillion Forks Mining and Development  Company. The coal is excellent for  ^household and steam making purposes  and it is anticipated that there will be  large quantity of it marketed on both  sides of the line. The Great Northern  bianch is being extended to a junction  with the main line at Wenatchee and  Mr. Hickling expects that along this  branch  there-will be. a  considerable  ������  market for the output of the Princeton  collieries. It will also find markets  in the Okanagan and Similkameen  and in Rossland."  Mr. Hickling also talks of railroad  building in Similkameen, but some of  the statements made were apparently  taken as fact by the. reporter, when  they could only have been merest conjecture on Mr. Hickling's part. Regarding the Great Northern's programme for track-laying in Similkameen, there is no one outside of St.  Paul knows anything whatever about  it, but' there are certain indications  which Mr. Hickling is evidently unaware of that point to probabilities very  different from the conclusions he is  represented to have drawn.  ALL SAME FORTY-NINERS.  Nicola Belles Prospect Gravels with Milk  Pans���������Fisherman's Luck. '  (Xicohv Herald.)  An unusual sight might have  been  witnessed along the banks of the Cold-  water the other day when a couple of  ladies, armed with milk pans, endeavored to take a fall   oii.t of  Dame  Fortune.   They "panned" the river bed in  true prospector fashion  in  search   of  the elusive yellow metal that has built  many cities and destroyed many souls  ���������that  is  "the  root  of all evil and the  fount of  untold  good.    Though   their  luck was much like that of the proverbial fisherman,   the ladies in question  have the "try again'' spirit, and limy  yet strike  a.  pocket of nuggets  that  will bring them fame and fortune.

KEEP   THEM   SEPARATE  The good book in joins us to  'abstain, not only from evil but  "the appearance of all evil."  '""Had "-the 'honorable gentleman  who holds the portfolio of Minister of Mines in the newly created mines department of- the  federal government duly observed that admonition, and  had realiy wanted to keep the  geological survey wholly divorced from party polities he  would have chosen a different  time to make his first visit to  the various mining centres, than  on the eve of a general election,  and would not have saddled  himself upon the director of  the survey. His own paper, the  Victoria Times is authority for  the statement that the election  is only a few weeks off, for in  its issue of the 26th tilt., or three  days before Mr. Templeman  reached Camp Hedley, the Victoria Times announced the date  of elections to be either October  28th or 29th. More especially  should he have taken care not  to obtrude his presence upon  the director of the survey, thus  hampering him in the discharge  of his duties in visiting and conferring with the various field  parties.  When the federal department  of mines  was formed and the  geological  survey   was  placed  under the control of that department the Gazette had misgivings as to the outcome but  expressed the hope that the survey  which  from   its inception  had been kept clear of  politics  by Conservative and Liberal administrations alike,  would not  not now be drawn into its baleful vortex.    We would like still  to believe that this could be so,  but the minister has  chosen to  adopt a course  of action that  renders this belief  no   longer  possible.     The geological   survey has done excellent work in  the past, and so far as proving  a valuable assistance to mining  is concerned, we are free to admit that it has never been more  efficacious than its work of the  last few years has shown it, but  this only serves to increase the  regret that attempt should now  be made by politicians  to have  it carry grist to their mill.   We  [have too  much confidence   in,  and respect for." Mr. Brock's attainments   as   a   geologist   to  think that if left to  himself lie  would be satisfied with so small  an amount  of personal  know-  j ledge of so important a field as  could be acquired by him in the  few   hours  which   he. spent  in  this camp, and ,it is  idle  under  the  circumstances   tp   pretend  that Mr.  Brock's  movements  were not  subordinated ���������to  and  dominated by  the  programme  laid out for   that   private 'car  which  they  left down   .in  the  yards at Keremeos  ..in', which  Minister Templeman was  touring .the mining sections of the  province and shepherding  this  po'rtiori of  the  Liberal, fold  in  anticipation of  the  cold  blasts  of opposition so  soon, to assail  the flock.    To,use a geological  metaphor, as well might we say  that with the sedimentary rocks  over-lying the granite and both  of them cut by eruptives, -there  is here no contact,  as  to  claim  in face of the  evidence  before  us, that politics have nothing to  do with the  survey; and it is a  very serious matter indeed, if so  important a branch of the public sew ice as the geological survey is "to be prostituted to party  exigency.  It is quite proper for Mr.  Tom pieman as Minister of Mines  at Ottawa, to visit all, mining,  camps in British Columbia, and  KILLED ON MOTHER'S.KNEE. .'���������  Rock From Blast Slays Child and Seriously Injures Mother."

The little girl died  shortly after the accident. Mrs. Dim-  mick.had both legs broken above the  knee and other injuries. . A younger  child was sleeping in a baby carriage,  and although thy. carnage, was smashed the child was uninjured.

X X  X      i 4       X  a  Continued from First Page.  it is to the credit of the government at Ottawa that it has  shown its readiness to-have the  geological survey assist the-.mining industry by tackling work  that some other provinces���������Ontario for instance���������do for themselves. Neither is there anything wrong PER SK in the Minister visiting mining -camps in  company with the director, but  care should be taken in such  case to abstain from even the  appearance of the evil of introducing politics into the survey  by choosing some other time for  the visit than the eve of a general election, and by endeavoring not to impede the director  in his work. The director, ardent field gologist that he is,  should have had at least 4 or 5  days to examine conditions and  verify the geological conclusions arrived at by the field  parties, but the presence of an  impatient minister, as innocent  of economic geology - as he is  well-versed in political intrigue,  could scarcely be considered encouraging for extending the visit or giving due consideration  to the work in hand.  On the other hand, a midterm visit from the Minister  would, we are sure, be thoroughly appreciated and politics  thrown to the wind in the general desire to do him honor, regardless of party.  R. Jackson was out all day yesterday  on his own account and, it *s belie-ved,  was able to give the police, valuable  information.' '     !  The late Chas. L. Thomet was- born  near Berne, Switzerland, and was 48  years, 10 months and 21 days old at  time of death.. He came to this district  16 years ago. He had been- a hunter  and prospector before coming here.  Everyone woll'acquainted with Charley Thomet knew just what he would  do in case of-a hold-up, and he did it.  A brave man, long familial- with the  methods of the gun men of the West,  and a contempt, ii" not hatred.'for the  "bad" man, lie simply couldn't put up  his hands. The .robbers doubtless came  prepared to kill and knew, as he. knew,  what would be the result if a hold-up  were attempted���������death to one or both.  His" dying .moments showed the cool,  brave determination of the man. Even  in dying.he placed himself in a position where he could do most execution.  Mrs. Thomet and family have the  sympathy of the district in the loss of  a brave,,-noble-hearted husband and  father.  The funeral will be held - in Midway  to-morrow (Friday) at 2 o'clock.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The reward of $1000 offered  by the provincial authorities  for the capture of the thugs  who killed Thomet at Midway,  is a step in the right direction,  but it is not enough. We may  kick at taxes in this country  but no true Canadian will begrudge the money spent in running a criminal to ground.  When a crime such as the killing of Thomet has been committed the question of cost  should not be thought of for a  moment. If it should cost half  a million to catch and convict  the criminals who perpetrated  that deed, all well and good.  Law and order are worth it all,  and Canada cannot afford to be  satisfied with anything less no  matter what it may cost.  Time and again the Gazette has  made it clear, that anonymous correspondence will not go, and that the  editor insists upon knowing who is the  writer of any article. Usually such  Utters go in the waste basket without  any comment in these columns concerning them, hut When complaint is  made about tin-horns and in a way to  insinuate that the Gazette and peace  officers are in sympathy with them,  we wish it understood that the Gazette has no use for tin-horns, and precious little, either, for those who are  fool enough to run up against these  gentry, whether they squeal or not as  the result of the contact. The law  makes ample provision for dealing  With gambling whether by tin-horn's  or anyone else, and if this "holy Willie" will go to the constable with the  names of the offenders, the date and  place of the offence and a list of those  who can testify (not omitting himself)  and ask for prosecution he will find  that those against whom his innuendo  is directed will he more ready to do  their duty than he will to do his.  Would-be moral reformers built on  the mud-turtle plan are not up to  much any way.  Labor Day committees should have  their organization perfected before  Monday that everything may go off  smoothly. Towns are judged by such  things. Above all, let everything be  straight and square. Let nothing prevent the best from winning.  ���������  ���������  MONDAY...& TUESDAY,  | SEPTBflBER 7 & 8, '08  Okanagan  College  .

Davidson, formerly hook-  keeper for several years at the 0. A.  College, Gruelph, came in last week and  will remain for about three months.  Everybody is praying for' good  weather on Labor Day. The people  in Hedley now would make a pretty  fair celebration in themselves.'if they  all turn out.  Three young ladies from Keremeos,  Misses Violet and Mildred Kirby and  Miss Kennedy, took a horseback ride  to Hedley on Friday last, returning  home on Saturday.   '  John Matheson was over from Okanagan Falls last nweck with a load of  fruit and vegetables from his line orchard. During the preserving season  house-keepers are interested in his  visits.  J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the  V. V. & E., returned last week from  Princeton and and beyond, where he  had gone two weeks before. He was  accompanied by his soil Ed. Kennedy  who is also a. civil engineer.  Messrs. Camsell and Allen, of the  geological survey, have broken camp  for this year and pull out tins morning  for Otter Flat, where they will have  two or throe weeks' work -before, finishing up the year's field work.  H. A. Hiucks returned on Saturday  evening from the coast and Mr. Chester who was relieving him in the bank  left on Tuesday morning for Greenwood. During his stay in Hedley Mr.  Chester made numerous friends.  |    .Air.,Fred Billing*.-, barrister, y'of'Ver-1  1 non, came in on Saturday evening on  professional business,   and is stopping  at the Daly Reduction Co.'s quarters.  T. D. Pickard returned on Monday  night. Guess there isn't- much more to  say about it. T. D. P. 'nobody knows  whence he comes and whither he goes.'  J. Percy Watson left-Victoria on the  20th of August f<������r a trip to his home  in the east, where hi* learned that bis  mother was in poor health.  A. T. Bryant, a prominent milling  engineer, arrived iu Hedley on Friday  night last to meet Mr. M. K. Rodgers,  and they spent Saturday on Nickel  Plate Mountain.  Mrs. G. P. Jones and children moved  down from the Nickel Plate this week  and have taken the house on Webster  St. occupied by them last term, to  enable the^chitclren to attend school.  There was gun play down at Keremeos on Monday, a drunken man running amuck with a shot gun, until he  was knocked over with a horse collar at  Royer's stable and taken into custody.  , This year's apple crop is being well  represented by sundry consignments,  mostly from Okanagan and-the lower  Similkameen. Some very fine luscious  specimens are to lje found among  them too.  Ed. Wheadon had a severe fall on  Friday last while working up on the  Twenty-mile wagon road. He was  standing on a tree trunk about six feet  above the ground when he slipped and  fell, striking the tree with his back.  Mr. T. Bradshaw has almost given  up hopeof locating the lost pipe which  he advertised in hist issue. Mr. B.  attaches special value to it on account  of it being a present from his daughter.  In all probability it has not been found  by anyone but may be lying in the  brush or grass alongside'the-trail. -  Angus Stewart, who has been connected with the Nicola Valley Lumber'  Company's sawmill- on Petit creek  since its start, was in Merritt-a couple  of days this week and leaves on a trip  to Vancouver, Seattle aud Spokane  on Satin day.

John R. Toole, a prominentMohtana  mining man, was in Hedley last week,  the guest of Mr. M. K. Rodgers. In  the earlier stages of development of  the Nickel Plate he held an interest  which he afterwards disposed of to the  late Marcus Daly.  Hedley has six hotels and the Gazette is credibly informed that during  the past fortnight some" of them have  not known what it was to have an  empty room; and putting them together there are not half a dozen empty hotel rooms in the town.  D. McLeod who works on the van-  ners in the D. R. Co. stamp mill had  the misfortune to have the thumb of  his left hand badly mashed by having it .caught under one of the vanner  frames. The slipping of a bar in the  hands of a fellow workman caused  the accident.  On Friday night last when John  Wirt-li was coming off shift about  midnight he was on the piece of high  sidewalk opposite the Grand Union  when the lights were turned off. The"  result was that when he attempted to  proceed he got a little astray ,-in his  beatings and fell off the sidewalk, dislocating his shoulder.  Madden brothers, of Spokane, have  taken a contract on the V. V. &-E.  which covers the large cutting on  Webster's place. Their contract is a  mile of grade from Sterling creek towards Hedley and they expect to employ about 75 men all winter. This is  generally considered a particularly  good take and it was expected that it  would be taken out with" the steam  shovel.

Maclean came down on Saturday last from the 20-mile road camp  and reported a broken stormy week,  with abundance of snow. One day  they had a weird electrical storm with  thunder rolling, lightning playing  around them and striking trees, and  all in a blinding snow-storm. One tree  was struck within 100 feet of the camp,  stunning several of the men, upon  which others ran like jack rabbits for  a piece of open meadow near by.  Rev.   C.  B.   Brenton,   principal  of  King's College School, Vancouver, B.  C, was in town last week in the interests of his school, an institution which  prepares boys for the British, Canadian  and American universities, Royal Military College, the various preparatory  professional   examinations,    and   for  commercial pursuits. While in Hedley  Mr. Brenton took a trip up the tramway and over the electric road to the  Nickel Plate, an experience which he  would not have missed for a great deal.  The possibilities of the mountain appealed  to him so strongly that he expressed the hope of seeing on his return the Gazette publishing a, daily,  with   street  cars   running   up  Scott  avenue ;  and he doesn't want to delay  his second trip very long either.  Duncan Woods arrived in Hedley  last week from Summer-land... This is  his first visit to Hedley this year, and  since he was last here he has been doing the eastern provinces including the  capital of the Dominion, where he  spent some time sizing up the federal  legislators. He has a land policy of  his own that looks like a winner. This  is to give 160 acres to every girl over 18  and every widow on terms of actual  settlement. Then the young men  could be counted on to be riglit on  hand to marry the women and incidentally, the land at the same time.  The more this scheme is examined the  sounder it appears, sociologically, financially and every other way.  C. M. Shaw, P. L. S., of Greenwood,  passed through on Tuesday on his way  west where he has some men at work  in the direction of the Hope summit,  surveying timber claims, Mr. Shaw  brought further details regarding the  shooting of Thomet at Midway. The  general opinion now is that Thomet  had. not even been told to hold up his  hands until he was shot. His first  movement on catching sight of them  evidently showed them that he was  not a. man to be held up and must be  killed at once. Mr. Shaw said that all  sorts of absurd stories and rumors*  were about, and among them the story  that the men had returned and put  three bullets into the wounded man as  he lay on the floor.  For plain sewing, repairing and renovating gentlemen's clothing, try Miss  Elliott, Kingston Ave,  Shatfords Limited have just received the Campbell Clothing Co.'s new  fall clothing samples.

T*he  Clinrm  of Victoria  Falls.
How the Victoria falls .impress a visitor is recorded in Miss C. W. Mackintosh's journal of a tour in South Africa.
Miss Mackintosh says:   "We perceived
no hint of the falls, only seeing before
lis a screen of rocky based, bright green
forest, apparently closing in the river,
like a lake.   Ten minutes' walk brought
us to'the. camp,'on a cliff which. literally overhrng the gorge, and we saw
the cataract thundering down into the
boiling pot at our feet.   The walls of
the chasm, 400 feet high, were spanned
by a rainbow. Tho charm of these falls
lies not in tho one overwhelming crash
as at-Niagara, but in the cumulative effect of various glimpses, the'matchless
beauty   of   the  surroundings  and  the
strangeness  of the whole setting, but
chiefly in the columns of spray, called
the   "thundering   smoke"   rind  in   tho
ever changing rainbows. The mile wide
river suddenly  drops  into a  yawning
crack in -the ground,  stretching right,
across the  stream at  right  angles  to
the   banks, -a   foaming  trough,   quite
narrow, of which  the walls  rose 400
feet above tho surface of the water."

Tlivce  Well Placed Rubles. ;
,The method'of introducing forbidden
documents into Jhe czar's country is
described by Carl Joubert, author of
"Russia as It Really Is." The purveyor of undesirable literature, having arrived on the frontier, at a point some
distance from the railway, approaches
the rittmaister and arranges matters
with him. The ritthiaister sees him
niicl his cart load of books safely across
the border and directs him to somo
small town near the frontier. Then
the rittmaister raises the alarm and
calls his men to horse, and they start
oft in pursuit of an imaginary smuggler in another direction, firing into
the air to show their zeal in.the discharge of their duties. "A ruble on
cither eye and ruble across the mouth,"
says Mr. Joubert, "will effectually prevent the Russian official from seeing
or speaking."

In this country swans are but little
scon, except-in public parks, but they
are coming into increasing favor on
private estates, as they give the finishing touch to an ornamental sheet of
water. In England swans have been
raised ever since the time of Richard
the Lion Hearted for eating purposes.
The largest swannery was maintained
by- Lord Ilchestor in Dorset, where
from seven to twelve hundred birds
were kept. In the early clays all swans
were raised at one place and brands
issued to members of the nobility.���
Country Life In America.
SEPTEMBER "ROD AND GUN."
Duck shooting has a mighty fascination in September and Rod and Gun
and Motor Sports in Canada, published
by W. J.- Taylor, Woodstock, Ont.,
deals iu a generous manner with the
duck hunter in its September issue.
Eastern, Central and Western Canada
contributes duck hunting stories, and
the differences in the conditions under
which the sport is pursued in various
parts of the country are well brought
out. Fishing and big game hunting
expeditions and accounts of the adventures of a chainman in "Helping to
Make a Railway," and the story7 of
"The Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron" are articles to which particular
attention may be directed. The story
of "The Alpine Club's Third Annual
Camp" is told in an article by a special
representative and care is taken that
those interested in outdoor life in any
of its phases are not neglected.
METEOROLOGICAL.
The following are the readings showing temperature, etc., for the week

Lawyers  ami Newspapers.
It has boon the joke of ages, and Is
the. joke today, that lawyers and the
newspaper men of the day are doing
as much, at least, as people in other
professions or trades in searching for
facts and in making them public, and
in so doing they are. doing their part
toward uprooting error and toward purifying  the   moral   atmosphere.

"These cards is wore out," complained tho old bos'n' in Snug Harbor.
