A neAV find of good copper ore Avas  made a short time ago on the War-  horse, one of the claims of the Kingston Gold-Copper Mining Co. The find  is about 1000 feet above the workings  of the Kingston and the ore is of a  desirable character, being chalcopyrite  and pyrrhotite in a calcareous gangue  and carrying its values in gold and  copper.  The calcareous gangue is a very  pleasing feature of the find, as it holds  out hope of Camp Hedley's ores being  self-fluxing.  Speculation, eif course, is indulged  in as to whether it can be in the same  stratum of the sedimentaries as the  Nickel Plate, but the change from  siliceous gangue to calcareous, Avith  pyrrhotite taking the place of arseno-  pyrite and plenty of copper being in  evidence, is a feature that, so far as  the camp is concerned, looks even  better than the positi\re assurance that  it should prove to be the Nickel Plate  deposit. The more pay strata of those  altered sedimentaries that can be  found the better, and especially to  find pay values in calcareous gangue  is most desirable.  The claims of the Kingston Co. are  properties of undoubted merit, and  now that early transportation is assured, it is to be hoped that development work Avill soon be in full swing.  _, *>     ���������:   FAIRVIEW NOTES.  Reliable information placed the  track-laying machine at Baker Creek  trestle on Sep temper first. Two miles  further on should see them well into  the loops at MeBride's. The amount  of trackage to be covered between  there and Molson should, after making  due allowance for laying yard tracks  at McBride station and delay for (.another trestle at the Lawless ranch,  place them at this date, if not at  Molson, at least within sight of it.  It is given out by eiffieials that tho  present'eibjectivc is a complete track  to Molson, ready for operating. To  this end, the ballasting is being kept  up as nearly as possible behind the  end of the steel, while Avater tanks,  station buildings and telegraph service  are following in close succession.  The intention eif the contractors-is  to be in a position to turn over te) the  Great Northern the portion from Midway to Meilson, fully completed, during  the present month, so that the railway  company may begin regular train service to Molson on October 1st.  A rumor Avhich is not credited Avas  afloat at Chesaw to the effect that  track-laying Avould be discontinued  for a month or twb when Molson was  reached. The grade being completed  west of Molson for some fifty miles,  the object for such a delay is certainly  notA'ery apparent.  On the grades, Ne>. 3 Camp is busy  on the west side of the river, between  the boundarv line aud the crossing at  Armstrong's ; but three eir tour weeks  has been given as Hie period necessary  to complete that portion. No. 1 Camp,  operating the steam sluwel, is uoav at  work in the big gva\-el cut at Keremeos. The shovel was moved up from  its,last location, at McCurdy's, some  8 miles below, on the railway grade,  andas the/number of rails which they  have is limited it took them several  days longer than anticipated to move  up, but they reached there at the end  of last Ayeek and the shovel is uoav in  operation, manned by, GO men.  Large quantities of contractors' materials have been stored at. Midway  ready for shipment westward as soon  as the; track reaches Molson, \A-heri a  decided forward movement in grading  this side of Keremeos may be expected.  Even without the assistance of the  plant stored at presept at Midway,  one of the. contractors is quoted as  having said that they now have grading plant on this side of Molson sufficient to cover the distance from Keremeos to Hedley.  THE OKANAGAN AS SEEN  By an Appreciative Old-Timer After a  Lapse of Several Years���������Mr. Nicholson, J. P., Writes of a  Delightful Trip.  GOLDEN  KEREMEOS.  To the Editor of the Hedley Gazette :  Dear Sir: Having occasion recently  to travel from Sicamous to Penticton,  I was se> forcibly impressed with the  great changes which have taken place  during the last two years in the Okanagan district and more particularly on  Okanagan Lake, that I am tempted to  ask'feir a little space in the Gazette for  a few notes by the way.  Of Enderby and Armstrong, owing  to the brief stay, little more was noted  than the increased groAvth and pros:  perity of these prettily situated toAvns,  destined in the near future to become  important distributing points of the  agricultural wealth with Avhich they  are surrounded. The view from the  car windows as the train rushed, e)r  more correctly, wended its way towards Vernon, was replete Avith scenes  of rural beauty���������here a field of grain  already ripe for the harvest, there an  orchard Avith the ripening fruit peep  ing from beneath the leaves of the  trees, or a eeisy farmhouse surrounded  Avith garden and meadow, revelling  alike in the glorious sunshine.  Vernon, sleepv old Vernon as it.  used to be called, now sleepy no longer,  but a very livecity Avith well laid out  avenues and streets lighted with electricity, good business houses, comfortable heitcls and substantial public  buildings, with a surrounding of pretty  villa residences midst lovely gardens  of fruit and flowers, forming a picture  of comfort and elegance; and if Ave  extend our Avalk beyond the suburbs  Ave are-immediately amongst magnificent grain fields and orchards, which  with the mountainous background  make a most charming scene.  On leaving Vernon by the steamer  "Aberdeen" one was surprised to see  the croAvd of passengers, a casual look  around showed but few British Columbians. Where, then, did all these  people  come from, and   Avhere were  The Old Price Holding, and Ranches of  E. Bullock-Webster, Innes, McCurdy  and Others.  Continued from last week.  Farther south than the ranch of  Mrs.' Lowe is that purchased from  Manuel Barcello by Mr. W. H. Armstrong, Avhich has extensive hay meadows and is at present in charge of  Mr. Elmhurst, who is bringing the  property into shape.  Time did not permit a visit to the  ranches still further south, some of  which are old holdings, like those of  D. McCurdy, W. J. Manery and R. s!  Armstrong and others, all of which  have more or less extensive hay meadows.  Returning again to ��������� Keremeos, a  prosperous looking piece of ground is  that to the north of the wagon road,  belonging to D. J. Innes, which has  been brought under cultivation.  West of this is the old Price property, now held by a small syndicate,  of which L. W. Shatford is oue of the  largest owners. Little cultivation has  been done on this, but arrangements  are being made for putting on Avater  and dividing it into small holdings.  Across the river is the ranch of E.  Bullock-Webster, which has been well  farmed and has a large bearing orchard. Its situation across the river  has been a great handicap, and but ���������  feAV who have visiteel Keremeos .have  had an opportunity of visiting this  ranch.' Noav that the railway is crossing a b this point to the Avestern side  of the river, necessitating a bridge,  there Avill be greater chance for the  public to get across aud see, what Mr.  Webster has been doing all these  years, fe>r he is a ATery old settler in  the am lie y.  MIDWAY AND   VERNON  D. H. Macdowall has   Returned   From  East���������Says road Will be Built.  A Dastardly Trick.  On Wednesday night of last week,  parties sitting in front of Stewart's  grocery on Haynes St., saw four riders  come inte) town from some point up  the river, and one of tho group threw  a bottle at a Chinaman, Sam Lee Ling.  The bottle Avas heard to strike the  Chinaman and to break em senile stones  Avhere it struck the ground about ten  feet further em. In the group of  horses were t\ve> grays, ov so they appeared in the dim light that shone  from the. grocery winelow. Seime say  that there-  Avas   one;   woman   in   the  BOOT &  SHOE MAKER  HEDLEY,  B.C.  Grouse hunting has been the favorite pastime since September first and  some good bags are reported, but  some of our own nimrods are beginning to look for bigger game and scorn  to enthuse on anything so commonplace as grouse. Carl Hairsine Avas  grousing (good-naturedly) with a shot  gun Avhen he came upon a bear, Avhich  he bombarded forthwith and brought  to a standstill; soon a rifleman, C. W.  Maloan, came along and limbered up,  -when bruin Avas brought to alie-doAvn;  and next along came Mr. Boone Avith  another shot-gun to bring him to a  lie-still. And uoav the courts may be  asked to decide; wheise bear it is.  party. One or two velis Avere said to  have been given, and the' party rode  full speed over the bridge and out of  town towards Smelter Flat.  The phone was use-si to have a watedi  kept for them at Braelshaw's, buL although two riders behaving rather  suspiciously passed there shortly after-  Avards, it is not thought that they  AA'ere the parties, avIio in all probability  did not require, to gei so far. In the  absence of a regular constable, the  matter was not handled with the  promptness anel despatch Avhich should  have been used anel which would in all  probability have furnished indisputable evidence, although some very suspicious circumstance's appeared from  the visit te) the rancheries made about  a couple of hours later.  No  serious   injury resulted  to  the  Chinaman, hut that doesn't alter the  situation a Avhit. The Avretch who  threw that bottle had no regard for  human life anel was a murderer to all  intents anel purposes, anel the man  Avho furnished the liquor to an Ine.lian  which Avould cause; him to do so was in  the same box.  they going ? From Manitoba, Alberta  and eastern points, and going to Kel-  owna, Peaehland, Summerland and  Penticton, all Avith the one object of  settling in the beautiful Okanagan  country, the veritable land of fruit  and sunshine. Very pleasing Avas it  to hear the flattering remarks on the  scenery, the appreciation of the beautiful sunny weather or note the genuine surprise at the productiveness'of  the soil, as the steamer passed some  little ranch Avith its little garden and  orchaid on the slopes of the lake shore.  And then to mark the enthusiasm of  these newcomers with the possibilities  of their future homes and when one  remembered that these men were experienced farmers, many of them among the early settlers of the territories  anel no strangers to hard work and a  hard climate, who Avere bringing their  families and their hard earned money  to build up homes uneler more genial  conditions, truly may British Columbia be proud to receive such settlers.  The first glimpse of Kelowna showed  what changes a few years had made  in   the  old Mission  flat,  now dotted  with  residences anel  orchards,  while  the town has greatly increased, extending well along the lake front.   Quite  a number of our passengers got off  here,  anel Avere warmly   greeted   by  friends avIio had preceded them.    Our  next stopping place, pretty Peaehland,  that picturesque village on  the lake  shore,   reminding one of some little  town on Lake Geneva, Avith its Avhite  chalets    and   abruptly   rising    hills,  claimed some more of our passengers,  one young lady seemingly much dis-  appointed because she could see  no  peavhos.    Owing to the dense smoke  from tin; forest fires enveloping the  hike, little cemlel be seen of Summer-  land, Avith the exception e>f the houses  near the hauling and a Avell built hotel.  Penticton proved the greatest surprise.    Was it possible that two short  years coulel have worked such a marvellous   change?    Had  some  fairy's  wand transformed dry, barren benches  into   Avell  watered  gardens  and  orchards?     Well,  yes,  in a sense, but  the   fairy   is   a  very  practical fairy  known   as   the   Southern   Okanagan  Land Co., anel the guiding spirit Mr.  W.T. Shatford, who with Mr. Latimer,  Cor.clueleel on Pago Four.  D. H. Macdowall of this city, has  arrived home from the east after a  trip extending from June. In addition  to private business Mr. Macdowall also-,  inade the trip east in connection Avith..  the Midway and Vernon railway affairs, .,  John Cain of Port Angles,  avIio  is  also prominently identified .with that  project, visited the - east at the same   .  time. Mr. Cain was in Victoria yesterday.  Mr. MacdoAvall says' the' results of  their negotiations in the east Avill be  the resumption of work on the railway. Financial arrangements have  been entered into Avhich will make it  possible to begin work again on the  MidAvay and Vernon at an early date.  A meeting of the board of management of the railway Avas held in Victoria since the return of Mr. MacdoAvall  and an adjournment taken until a later  date.   ������.���������.���������  Midway and Vernon  Railway.  Greenwood Times  Ralph Smailes who has been representing the promoters of the Midway  and Vernon railway is expected home  this evening, accompanied' by L. M.  Rice, a Avell known engineer. The expert of the eastern eonstriution company is already em the ground to check  up the reports of the. promoters.  Ample European capital is behind  the enterprise ami construction is expected shortly to begin.  A Youthful Chicken Thief.  Residents in the south end Avho have  been in the chicken industry have been  annoyed during the summer Avith the  frequent disappearance of chickens.  A. Winkler lost fifteen e>r thereabout,  Fred. Revely a dozen and J. Jackson  of the NeAv Zealand, over thirty. Finally George Tuck, son of Ah Tuck, was  caught monkeying with Fred Revely's  hen-coop, and under the influence of a  little-judicious pressure told of the  various thefts committed by him.  Some of the chickens he sold to prospectors and when he was unable to  sell others he threAv them into the river. The young scallywag is about 11  years of age, and unless his father puts  up for the chickens taken, the youthful offender may be dealt Avith in the  manner prescribed for such cases, THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   SEPTEMBER 18,   WOO.  and  Similkameen Advertiser.  -;neel oit Thursdays, by the Hewi.ky Gazktt*  .

A Canadian corporation,  the C. P.R.,  has undertaken  to   carry   the  British  mail to  and from the  orient in considerably less time  than it has ever  been  done before and has been given  an op-  portunity by the British   Government to make good.   The C.  P. R. claim to be able to land  the British mail in Hong-Kong  in 29 days.    Their new Atlantic  liner, the Empress   of   Ireland  landed the mails  etc.  in schedule time at Quebec,  when the  transcontinental    train started  . westward   and   delivered   the  goods to the Empress of China,  at Vancouver, on  time  to the  minute.   The Empress of China,  in  taking  up her   end of the  task, started out on a seventeen  knot an hour clip, and that she  will succeed in reaching Hong-  Kong in  the time  allowed for  her, even if  it be nearing the  equinoctial period, there is no  reasonable room to doubt.  As a feat which must appeal  to that innate love of sport so  strong in the Anglo-Saxon, this  race of the C. P. R. steamers and  trains across two oceans and  one continent is able to arouse  the most marked enthusiasm,  and is in itself sufficient to account for the prominence given  the occurrence in the press in  Canada; but there is underlying,  it all a deeper cause for interest  that it is not necessary to explain to those Avho have felt the  national thrill produced by the  event. In it they can see that  Canada has again demonstrated to Great Britain the right to  be considered her premier colony, the greatest of her 'dominions beyond the seas," and an  essential factor in that scheme  of empire which has made Brit-  tain great "beyond compare."  The News-Advertiser in telling of the arrival of the train  there, quoaes from one of the  passengers, R. B. Bennett, of  Calgary, the following tersely  put sentences embodying this  idea.    Mr. Bennett says:  "This train may he regarded as the  concrete expression of that idea of the  unity and solidarity of the British  empire 'of Avhich we se> often speak.  The name "Over-seas Mail" suggests  the words used in the title of the King,  referring to our Colonial Empire as  "The British Dominions beyond the  Seas." It strikes a true Imperial note.  It cannot but be just cause for national  pride when avc recollect that the most  tommyi'ot that letter' of Winston Churchill to Hamar Green-  Wood, meant as a, sort of pastoral to  the Johnny Canucks  is  quite unequalled.    Yet, there is  little else to be expected from a  youth whose self-conceit soared j saJ������e, except bear  to such a pitch tliat he'would  try to belittle his own father by  saying of him  that "Randolph  Churchill would only be known  in history .as the father of Winston Churchill."     This  verdant  bumptious youth who thinks he  can perpetuate the memory  of  what he" shamelessly intimates  was a nondescript father, by sil-  endeavors to emulate the freaks  of Billy Hohenzollern,   apparently   still   has   savvy enough  to grasp the  idea that British  Liberalism  is   thoroughly   discredited   in    Canada,    and   he  wants his friend j Tongs Greenwood,    to   reassure, Canadians  that now that he (Winston) was  in the government, things would  be better.   British   Liberalism  undoubtedly is and,  for many  years for very good reasons, has  been discredited here, both for  the'weakness of its foreign polity  by  which British prestige  invariably suffered, and for a  domestic policy that catered to  the whims of little Englanders,  and in  which  sympathy with  the colonies had never any lot  nor part.   If Winston Churchill  wants Canadians to take any  stock in him or his colleagues of  the Campbell-Bannerman  outfit,  let him   and them   modify  their attitude towards   Chamberlain and his views.

r Mrs. G. P. Jones Avas down from the
Nickel Plate and brought her little girl,
Avonia down to attend school in Hedley ,as the school at the mine has been
closed owing to insufficient attendance.
The MidAvay Star   registers a kick
against the unseemly noises made by
one of the V. V. & E. engines working
between there and the end of the track.
Hedley would like immensely to hear
what that noise sounds like.
Jirii Steve, half breed, Avas caught at
Squakim's Avith a bottle of booze,
which he and Squakim had sampled
rather freely, and he Avas fined $50.00
and costs for the little indiscretion.
On his last trip here, Indian Agent
Irwin distributed considerable money
to the Indians for right of Avay from
the V. V. &E. This probably accounts
to a certain extent for so much boozing and betting among them at the recent celebration.

Exeunt Twentieth Century Club.
"A short lite and a merry one"
seems to describe the butterfly career
of Hedley's first social, institution, the
Twentieth Century Club. Only four
surviving members attended the obsequies on Friday night last, when
they met and, after duly considering
the situation, decided to- commit
esthetic literary hari-kari by-legislating -theniselAres out of existence.
Two dollars were left and the treasurer was instructed to use this in paying the freight on the travelling library
now here, when it is shipped out at
the end of the six months' term. The
books of the Club, some 27 volumes,
Avere donated to the hospital.
The Twentieth Century Club was
organized on New Years Day, W04,
that being the particular species of
good resolution which, moved the
members thereof. Its motto, from
Emerson, was "Culture, how indispensable." Thus, all that winter they
imbibed culture in allopathic doses,
the Fridays upon which meetings
were held being the one bright bonbon meted out to members and visitors. The toAvn that winter avjis chock
full of talent, musical and histronic,
some rattling good entertainments-
being given. The next summer it
began to languish. Whether the lassitude Avas due to hay fever or some
other kind of sleeping sickness, is not-
known, but the. end came, and it is
now in order to plant daisies.

The contract has been let for the
new school-house to J. D. Brass, avIio
has been notified that his Avas the tender that landed the job.' But the
point Avhich is troubling the contractor is Avhere to procure the lumber,
for the. tie-up of the Hedley Lumber
Company has precipitated a-*- serious
.condition of affairs in the building line.
John Thompson, otherwise knoAvn

given the alternative on Monday of
leaving toAvn inside of six hours, or

loops jail under the vagrancy act. He
chose the former.
Some changes are being made in the
auxiliary steam plant at the Daly Reduction Company's poAver house. The [
Mumford boiler which avus formerly
placed at the south end has been
moved around to the north end, and
placed alongside the 80 h. p, tubular.
The large pump is also being placed in
position out at the lake.
The GreeiiAvood Times keeps re-iterating the statement that Avork is not
to be prosecuted north of Keremeos
until the track reaches OroAille. It is
to be hoped that the Avish is not father
to the thought, We in Hedley have
claimod for the last tAVO months that
the move would be made Avhen the
track reached Molson, and avc thought
Ave had pretty good authority for that
belief.
On Saturday last Charlie Allison
killed a big bear em the Avest side of
the river across from Ashnola. John's.
He first shot him Avith a 22, after Avhich
his tAVO staghounds took the show into
their oAvn hands. The bear put up a
hard fight but the scaghoimds savvied
team play. Charlie is of the opinion
that those tAVO dogs are good for any
ordinary hear unaided.

Please r2JasKS3!ha*!������'# *���������**������������������*.  THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER .13.    1906.  THE OKANAGAN  Continued from First Pace.  C. E., and his staff of assistants, ha.ve  carried out a most thorough system-of  irrigation,    by   Avhich    thousands   of  acre's of t^ie 'finest fruit land  can   be  brought under cultivation.   Under the  guidance of an old friend, Dr. White,  I had the pleasure of driving over that  portion of the bench land which had  been subdivieled and set'out in peach  and'' other fruit   trees,   and ..forming  some idea  c>f the "magnitude of* .'the  irrigation Works.    It was a revelation  tei seje these''arid benches transformed  t-.inte)' neatly' ' fenced '��������� orchards^ . Avith  'abundant, water conveyed  by- gradu-  ated-flumes from the; main ditch', which  following    the .mountain,  side ��������� gave  ample fall for any uu-.-venness of the  land, tho supply to this main ditch  beiiig supplemented- by a series of res-;  ervoirs extending'up   the  Penticton  creek to the summit- of the mountain.  As it is the intention of the Company  to at once complete the subdivision,of  the land to'Nine Mile Point, the water.  >���������  from the adjoining,creeks will also he  .utilised, the whole water system being  further   augmented  by an  enormous  reservoir   now    under   -construction.  ', 'No expense seems to have-been-spa-red  by the Company to ensure success and  though doubtless the outlay has .been  great,'owing to the difficulties which  have  had   to' be   overcome,   there   is  ample evidence of the wisdom of this  expenditure in  the  results   attained.  The healthy appearance e>f the young  ," orchards should satisfy the .most skep-  -'  tical as to the adaptability of soil and  climate for peach culture, many of the  yearling trees having the growth of  two-year-olds.    Great, care,  has  been  shown in the planting of the trees and  the   distribution    of   the    irrigating  ditches,-more particularly noticeable  on   those   en-elm rds  which  are  being  prepareil. by the Company for absentee  owners,    offering   characteristic   evidence erf the thnremgh business methods  of the  Land  Company.     Of the  many-choice orchards, those owned by.'  the Hon. Mr.'.McI-Jride and Mr. Christie  of   the Bunk of  Commerce,  may be  mentioned for their favourable situation and advanced cultivation,  and  the very pretty garden  and orchard,  owned 1" think  by   a-   Mr.  Mutch, is  noticeable for :!ts abundance and variety of fine vegetables.  It is too soon to form an idea of the  future of the toAvn of Penticton, at  present in a straggling, embryonic  stage, with a few business houses and  two hotels, not to forget a hall of  justice and lock-up, perhaps eventually  with the growth of the surrounding  country the beautiful Jake front may  become the business centre of the  coming city. A call at the Land Company's ofhVe on Main street, afforded  the opportunity for a pleasant chat  with Mr. Shatford, who, in response  to some remarks as to the great work  which has been aoconiplishedy replied,  " Oh, we are. only commencing, you  must remember that-after Ave complete  our Avork to Nine Mile Point we haAre  some forty miles of similar land to be  dealt with, at the; same time I am  more than plea.secl with the results of  our efforts, for I feel we have successfully solved the irrigation question.  We could have had no better test than  the present summer, an exceptionally  dry one, even for the Okanagan, and  yet we have abundance of water, a.  fact which has strongly appealed to  purchasers, as evidenced by our land  sales, whir-h have far exceeded our  most- sanguine expectations."  That such conspicuous success should  have attended the Southern Okanagan  Land Company's operations, must be  alike  gratifying   to   its   shareholder's  iv.i;'. lo 1 ;i'i;-e interested in the welfare  anel progress of our Province, for this  cmi'-'iiiy by the expenditure! of a large  aino'n:    of   money are  transforming  ti)ou.-,v!,i!s ef acres of, uneler existing  conditions,    praclicra-lly    useless   land  into   cultivable   lanel   of   the   highest  vahu . and by subdividing into  small  lioldiu-j.-.-. Icinging within the reach of  those with iiKuleiate- means, who will  be  enabled   to   make for   themselvse  comfortable homes in what has aptly  been called the California of Canada.  Well, Mr. Editor, I  have  travelled  the Okanagan a-good many times and  for  a good many years, but this last  trip has been an awakening, and, given the present rate of progress, it may  be safely predicted that by  the  time  the   pencil   trees  ,-u-e   in   bearing,   the  Southern  Okanagan Land Company's  water   ditch   will   be   irrigating   the  neAvly planted trees at Osoyoos Lake.  Yours truly,  H. N.

SHATFORD,  Secretary and Tlanager,  Townsite  HEDLEY,  KEREMEOS NOTES.  Dr. McEwen is giving close attention to the fever patients, most of  whom are doing well. To assist him a  trained nurse has been brought in  from Vernon.  The condition of one of the patients,  Fred Waitt, was considered rather  serious, but it is expected that he will  pull through all right.  The arrival of the steam shoArel  which is now at work below the new  townsite, making a huge cut and shaping up grade, has made things much  livelier here. Some 60 men are employed and this cut is expected to take  about four months to complete.
