' ,; .  This new engine, however, will only  work with steam and during the time  that water power is available its work  will be done by a separate water  wheel which is yet to come. Tho engine now here is a 21x30 compound  condensing corliss engine built by the  Goldie & McCulloch people of Gait,  Ont. Tt will be required to drive the  electric trolley line at the mine, and  furnish juice for all the various electric  motors iu the mill including the stamps  yanners, crushers, tube mill, Deister  tables, filter presses, classifiers, pumps  etc.  It is a machine with ample reserve  power and capable of tlie highest degree of efficiency for long periods  without a" moment's cessation.' The  bed plate of it alone weighs about- ten  tons. It is to be placed at the south  end of the power house along side the  generator it is to drive and connected  with it direct, while, the water wheel  which is to relieve it will be placed fit  the other side of the generator.  : The water wheel will not be here for  some time yet as the manufacturers  were held up by a. moulders strike and  will not be able to shin before the 6th  of Sept, which will leave it pretty late  in the fall before it can get here to lie  installed. The generator has also been  later in coming * than was1 counted on  but will likely be here before the  water wheel. Meanwhile the cement  foundations for both of them are being made ready for them.

The Nicola Valley News is entering  the field of railway prophesy and in a  recent issue appeared:  "The Canadian Northern Railway  will come south from Kamloops  through the Nicola country and on  over the Hope into Vancouver," declared one well known railroad man  in .conversation with the News at  ���������Vancouver yesterday. And recent developments seem to comfirni him for  indications now point very strongly  towards the adoption of the Nicola  route.  The Canadian Pacific Railway has  made formal objections to the Thompson and Fraser route for the Canadian Northern on the ground that  there is not room for two lines in different parts of the canyon, The matter has been sent before the railway  commission and it is the popular opinion that the latter will sustain the objection and force the Canadian Northern to abandon the route. An engineer from the commission is now conducting an investigation.  And this is just what the Canadian  Northern has sought for some time.  They are pledged to follow the Thompson and Fraser route and they cannot  abandon the route without breaking  faith,  Canadian Northern engineers from  England, who are financially interested in the project went over the proposed route a short time ago and on  their return to the old country entered  a vigorous protest against the Thompson and Fraser route condemning it a.-*  absurd.  Contracts have been awarded for  those portions of the line up as far a.s  Hope and down the North Thompson  as far as Kamloops leaving a gap with  two alternative routes. But there was  no plausible means of escaping the  Thompson) route.  The local route "i*-. nearly forty miles  shorter than the Thompson route and  one of the I he aims of the Canadian  Northern in taking it is to block the  Grand Trunk Pacific.  After, a long wait the people of  Hedley learn with much satisfaction  that the Kingston mine in ths camp is  at last to be given a chance to join the  list of producers,  A telegram was received yesterday  by A. Creelman representing the Redeemable Trust Co., that a bond had  been taken by his company on the  Hedley properties of the Kingston  Gold and Copper Mining Co. owning  the Kingston, Warhorse, Metropolitan  and Grand View mineral claims and  that arrangements were being made  to begin extensive exploratory work  to open up the properties.  The consideration and the other  conditions of the bond are. not known  even to Mr. Creelman, all the arrangements in connection with the bond  having been made at ��������������� conference  hold in Boston between the Redeemable Trust Co. and representatives of  the Kingston Co. who.had gone down  to Boston from Quebec which is the  headquarters of the Kingston Co.  The Kingston Gold and Copper  Mining Co. of which W. A. Marsh of ���������  Quebec is president, own the above  mentioned claims on the steep mountain side overlooking Hedley and in  plain view from Hedley streets. On  the various properties of the group a  great deal of development has been  done and considerable high grade ore  was encountered leaving ore dumps on  various parts of the group the value  of which will possibly exceed $10,000  (indeed one small dump of $100 ore  was conservatively estimated to go  $1000). The wonder has always been  that a property of such exceptionally  good showing (for the ore is not con-  lined to a few spots but is widely distributed) should have-been allowed to  remain idle a single day after the railway reached the town, for all the development was done before the railway was built up the valley. A disorganized condition of the company  and the fact that the heaviest stockholders were not mining men is the  only explanation that can be given.  London, August 21.���������Sir Wilfrids  Lauricr's tour in Western Canada  continues to attract attention in political circles in Great Britain. The free  trade party, in particular, is making  all the capital it can from the demand  of the western farmers for a change in  the fcariif system. * 'Fret; trade journals  affect to regard the movement as the  awakening of, Canada to what has  been called by protectionists the  blessings of unrestricted imports."  The secretary of the free trade union, who was recently in the Dominion,  in an interview says that tho high  tariff cause in Canada is losing adherents every clay. He adds that protection is the secret of the disease in  the purchasing power of the masses,  and that the masses are beginning to.  realize, the fact.  Even the -'only serious paper in  Great Britain" - Punch���������has a pleasant jibe at the. Canadian premier. It  represents him as a moth flitting over  the wheat fields of Western Canada  while the free trade star sheds its  light upon him. Sir Wilfrid is remarking "Well, after all, it is a long  way off; there is no risk of singeing  my wings just yet." The cartoon is  entitled, "The Desire of the Moth for  the Star."  A NOTED ORCHARD  The Old Okanagan Smith Place Pleases  the Oroville Gazette  Ah example of what even a shamefully neglected fruit orchard in the  the Okanagan or Similkameen can do  is seen in the case of the old Okanagan  Smith place on Osoyoos Lake which a  few years ago was allowed to run  wild year after year, but is now responding to   the   better   care  INTEREST IN GOLF INCREASES  Anyone who saw the turnout for  golf on Saturday could have little  difficulty in deciding that the game  had caught on in Hedley. On that  occasion there were players enough  out to man five, sets of foursomes, or  rather, four sets of foursomes and one  threesome, one of the gentlemen who  had been drawn failing to turn out.  The principal feature of the day's  play, however,- apart from the fine  turnout was the general improvement  in the play as all the scores were better  than on any previous trial of mixed  foursomes.  The best score made during the day  was that made by C. E. Oliver and  Miss Emily Jackson in the last set  which finished out, their opponents  being S. K. Hamilton and Mrs. Jamie-  son, and the scores after deduction of  handicaps being 29 to 39. The second  honors went to A. Megraw and Miss  Eraser who had for their opponents  II. A. Hincks and Miss Myrtle McLean  scores after deduction of handicaps 32  to -10. The winners of third where G.  H. Whiteman and Miss Williams who  beat M. lief rick and Miss Bond, scores  after deduction of handicaps, 33 to 13.  In tlie fourth set L. ('. Rolls and Mrs.  Gillespie beat Homer McLean and ."Sirs  Iiofherham. score after deduction of  handicaps, 31 to 13. In the threesome  Mrs. Mamilton played against F. II.  French and Mrs. .Jones and was allowed double hoi handicap; scores, Mrs.  Hamilton   13 and opponents 13,  being  given it by the Bowerman Brothers.  The Oroville Gazette has the following  to say concerning a visit paid to it.  "The orchard is a part of an Indian  allotment, and is leased by the government for the benefit of the single living heir, now a young girl.   The present leasers are George and Harry Bowerman, and it was through the courtesy of Mr. Geo.  Bowerman  that   the  writer had an opportunity to inspect  the orchard recently.   After seeing it  he urges every resident of Oroville who  can do so to do likewise.    It will be a.  revelation.     The orchard is indisputable evidence of the richness of the  soil.    Here is an orchard that has performed the function  of production for  nearly 50 years,     The boles of those  trees are of mighty girth.   The enormous   branches extend   upward   and  outward like a monarch of the forest,  and just now bend low beneath a burden of the choicest fruit.    It is a wonderful sight, and this orchard in itself  is   convincing*    proof   that   for   fruit  growing  there is no  locality that can  surpass   the   land   immediately   surrounding Oroville      It is easy  to suppose that with the  indolence and indifference of the early pioneer, and no  other  help  than   that   that could   be  obtained from the  Indian hangers on.  who have  no reputation  for industry,  this orchard had little attention in tin-  early years of its growth, and has been  sadly  neglected in   more recent years  by those leasing the land. Yet in spite  of  this   indifferent attention   in   the  past,   which   has  been   surplanted by  intelligent care  and  attention  under  the   present  lease,   no   orchard   could  look to he in a  more flourishing state,  and   certainly   could    not   be  a   more  fruitful  producer.      Off  of   one   tree  alone Mr.   Bowerman   picked two ton  of apples   this month,   and   there  are.  others that look as though they would  yield an equal amount.   The fruit consists   of apples and   pears, and Smith  selected  a good   variety,   there   being  the Blue Parmain, Spitzenburg, Yellow  Bell/lower, Twenty-ounce Pippin   and  other well-known commercial apples."  Fort Frances, Ont., is to have a large  pulp and paper industry as the result  of the policy of the Whitney government in insisting that all the pulp  taken off government lands in that  province be manufactured into paper  in the province.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  It is a mournful as  well  as humili-  ���������'.'ating fact' that'loud  as   we ' have all  been talking of conservation   the destruction   of forest-  areas., by  fire ..goes  on without ;ibateiiH*nt.    it- is true, the  present   has   been   a particularly dry  s'lmimi-r oyer'a considerable portion of  the continent,   but  there   have been  other seasons quite .-is dry  that  were,  not attended   with the appalling destruction,of life and property that have  marked   this  year;    and..yet we  had  scarcely got.  through ' talking of the  Washington joint conference on  conservation  and ^ the  beneficent  results  which winze to follow   when'the Idaho  and Montana fires broke out and were  allowed  to  pass beyond   all control.  The intention   of the government of  both   countries   was   wise,    laudable  and sincere,   but the  measures adopted to secure their end appear to have  been i-fithei* ineffective. Thus far (with  the exception    of the Fernie disater  of tlnee years ago) British  Columbia  has escaped serious harm but it is well  known  .that  the machinery   for fire  fighting is far short  of what it should  be.    A chief fire warden   for  the  province has been appointed  and already  he has made reports on  tlie fires  that  have occurred and has  estimated, the  amount of loss occasioned,   but while  , that information is desirable, it should  be considered of secondary importance,  to'that of seeing that every effort  is  made,to prevent fires, deal summarily  with   those   who are  responsible for  setting them  and take the most effective method    of extinguishing them  after they  have  been   set.     Absolute  attention to detail   is what is required  until organization has been perfected,  and it is c;f more importance  that the  chief warden   should see that his local  wardens are capable  and  doing  their  duty than that he should] spend  his  time with clerical work.   Men who are  put on to fight fire should be looked  after  both to see  that  they  do   their  work and that they are provided with  such food and shelter as may enable  them to do their work  as it should be  done.    Their employment can he only  temporary  and it is absurd   to expect  them to work for the  same  pay as a  man on *i steady job  or  without  provision   being made for  his  food.     In  some states their fire laws   make  provision  for compelling jnen   to go out  .and fight'fire when notifiedjthe warden  to do so.    This is a dedicate  point in  that it wotdd seem  to   interfere  with  the  individual   rights  of  the citizen,  and if wardens  are granted such powers it is necessary  that  they   be men  who can be ti listed with such powers,  There are. many things to* be attended  to   before our fiie fighting machinery  is made  .*rs  effective  as  il^gshould  be  and  the sooner  the government sets  about  funking   itgso   thej^ better for  ovorvhodv.

' For the convenience of some of the  ���������shooters from the outside it has been  decided to hold the trap shoot for the  Shatford cup on the afternoon of the  first day's sports.

Smith, accountant for the  -Hedley Gold Mining Co.; was called to  i'Spokane on Thursday of last week because of the serious illness of Mis.  Smith who went there for treatment  some weeks ago.  " Placer mining is being cariied on  between Oroville and Nighthawk'on  the lower Similkameen, by the Golden  Sands Mining Co. who are using an  electric pump to wash the gravel  through the sluice boxes.  Mrs. Thain, .Hedley's new-teacher,  arrived on Friday last and school reopened on Monday with a larger roll  of pupils than have ever attended before, as there were several additions  to the school population during the  holidays.  It does not look as if Hedley is likely  to have any ball team competing for  the baseball pri'-ze^ but it.is reported  that Princeton will, try conclusions  with Oroville,aiicLai-e likely to put up  a sti(r.g;fme as they have secured the  services  of Tommy Daly as   pitcher  /and Charlie'Armstrong for either first  / or second base. If they have a catcher  able to handle. Tommy's delivery they"  should be able to put up a tidy game.  Mr. Herbert Hogg, of Vancouver  B. C, inspector of agencies for the  Columbia Fire Insurance Company,  was in town last week in the interests  of his company. The Columbia is a  non-board company and has .on -its-  board of directors some of the loading  business men of Vancouver ' among  whom may be mentioned E. H. Heaps,  E. P. McLennan, of the firm of McLennan, McFeely <fc Co. and S. H.  Beid of the law firm of Bowser, R-eid  and AVall bridge. These men do not  believe in. Insurance monopoly and  resent the dictation of the underwriters  hence their revolt and their connection with strong non-beard concerns  like the Columbia and the Hudson  Bay.  The Harold Nelson company drew a  very good house on Thursday night of  last-week when they presented" Pierre  of the Plains" in which the leading  role of Pierre is taken by Harold Nelson himself. Those who have revelled  in the delightful pen pictures of life on  the great plains as depicted by Sir  Gilbert Parker in his two books  ������������������Picric and His People" and "A  Romany of the Snows" could not fail  to have been delighted with the interpretation given to the character  ������������������Pierre" whose impersonation at the  hands of this actor was superb. To  those who look to lighter melodrama  or Vaudeville to be'amused and are  not disposed to appreciate the literary  value of a piece of that kind, it mav  have been in some reepects disappointing, but to an admirer of Parker's  western stories it furnished an excellent evening's entertainment, it was  a piece in which to test the genius and  the versatility of an actor, and very  few of those who can make a tolerable  success of more or less difficult roles  in modern melodrama could have attempted it at all. It must have; been  difficult to dramatise and still more  difficult to stage. The part "Jen Gal-  braith" taken by Miss Grace Johnson  while not in many respects as showy  as the female parts in which actresses  are asked to star was nevertheless a  faithful  interpertation   of   the   "Jen"  which Parker has given us.  ���������������������������������  m  @  ���������������  ���������������  m  ���������@.  @  *  ���������@  m  ���������������-  ���������:������>  m  m  ������.������������������������������.@'^  NCE  Of Everything  in   Our  Dry  u>  Ladies' Waists, Skirts,  Whiteware  Hosiery, etc.  Men's  Clothing,  Shirts Underwear  Hats and Caps  Boots and Shoes, Mens9, Women's and Children's  Furniture, Carpets and Linoleums  umiim  We are making Sweeping Reductiens in all of the above goods many things being marked away  down below cost1.-   It is the Greatest Bargain Sale ever put on in the Country.

Rolls has offered a prize of a  handsome leather-backed score book  to the lady, who stands highest on a  ladder competition to be completed by  the 30th of September. As there are  now about a dozen ladies here who  are playing golf, the present competition should- heighten the interest  among them and result in some good  faithful practise during .the coming  month,*'whieti is the ideal time of the  year for golf.  Penticton carried two by-laws' last  week that' "will have an important  bearing on the town's prosperity. One  was to grant to the Kettle Valley railroad fore shore site for station grounds  and docks and the other vvas to purchase an irrigation and domestic water, supply system for the town. Both  were carried almost ..unanimously..  With such a spirit of unanimity and  progressiveness-Penticton's outlook is  indeed bright:  A tiny diminutive envelope inclosing a card marked "Mr. and Mrs.  Isaac Lincoln Merrill" and underneath  the name line, another, "Isaac Lin-,  coin' Merrill Jr." and at the bottom  the date "August the twentieth,"  was received' by the Gazette this  week. At first ye editor: was mystified but by and by the light dawned.  The envelope was post-stamped at  Camden; Maine. Thus I. L. Jr., the  future golfer, is a down east Maine  'Yankee, and the Gazette hopes he will  be as ardent a devotee of the game as  his father. To Mr. and Mrs. Merrill  the- Gazette extends congratulations.  The     Great . Northern     evidently  came to see the folly of their increased  freight schedule from this camp which  put forward a rate almost doubling  the cost of shipping out concentrates  and  have now  agreed to restore  the  old rate.    Had  they not   done so  it is  is practically a  foregone  conclusion  that they would have   lost all that  trade,    for   otherwise   arrangements  would  have been made forthwith  to  treat   the  concentrates locally.    It is  fortunate,  however, that the old rate  has been restored as   it will  leave the  Hedley Gold Mining Co.   free to push  on their improvements in other directions,   without having   to  undertake  the   making   of   provision   tor   local  treatment of   the   concentrates at  a  time when they have so  many other  things  to engage all their attention.  They are at present giving the railway  company a good volume of business in  hauling in machinery without having  an imposition of additional  burdens  laid on them in  the matter of imined  iate disposal of the concentrates.     It  s  important also for  the  camp  that  the Ry. Co. have come to see the mistake    of killing   for   themselves   the  goose that was laying the golden eggs,  for it would lessen   the inducement on  the  part of capital   to take  hold   of  other property and it is to  the interests of the railway at the present time  to  give  all  the encouragement they  can instead of strangling enterprise by  imposing    unwise    and   unnecessary  burdens.

At Keeler's Dining llootn, you can  get a good meal for 85 cents, or a meal  ticket good for 21 meals, for $b'.o0.  Miss MerUulleu, who has been spending her vacation with friends at Vernon and Nelson, re-opened school here  on Monday. There was a,good attendance of scholars.  '   ,  Porter Gibson leaves', on Thursday  for Regina going by way of Penticton  and the C. P. R. We regret that circumstances are such as to render it  necessary for Mr. Gibson to leave the  valley. G  Mr. Kinney, of Butte, Montana, is  spending a week in Keremeos awaiting the return of his brother, Rev. G.  B. Kinny, whom he came over to visit.  Rev. Mr. Kinney has wired to .say  that he will.be back on Saturday, and  though no announcement is made it is  expected that Methodist service will  be held in the church on Sunday,  morning and evening.  A blind man and his daughter were  in town last week. It appears that  the old gentleman has recently come  out from Ireland in search of a brother  who was supposed to be living at Nelson but had moved to Midway. In  going from Nelson to Midway they  had taken the wrong route going  around by Revelstoke and the Okanagan to Penticton and from thereto  Keremeos by stage.  A pest, which the ranchers in the  lower valley, will have to wage war  against, has..made, its appearance in  flocks of small birds, somewhat resembling black birds in color and size,  which attacks the apples as they be-  ' gin to color in the orchards. Last  week we had occasion to visit the  ranch of R. J. Armstrong in the lower  valley and saw in his orchard a splendid crop of fine apples almost totally  ruined by these destructive birds.  They attack the late winter apples  quite as much as the earlier varieties.  Near Keremeos where the country is  divided into smaller holdings and  more densely populated the birds have  not done any appreciable damage  though an occasional apple bearing  their trade mark may be found.  Ashnola John was in town on  Tuesday and accompanied by another  Siwash was given a ride in Armstrong's motor car, their curiosity getting the better of their natural mistrust of the halo horse vehicle. Old  John was a noted brave in his younger days and despite the many winters  that have left their hoarfrost on his  raven locks, is still considered pretty  "skookum" but before he finished with  his auto ride the starch was knocked  clean out of him and the manner iu  which he gripped his companion with  one hand and the seat of the car with  the other indicated pretty clearly that  he would much prefer riding a bucking cayuse. Our knowledge of Chinook  did not enable us to understand all  that the venerable chief said in describing his experience but to illustrate his feelings he rattled his knees  together in a manner that was very  eloquent.  Attached to Saturday's train was a  special car cartying a party of six  prominent G. N. Railway officials including the heads of several departments of the western division. On the  return trip from Princeton the train  Avas hold here long enough to enable  the party to drive out and visit a number of fruit lots: sample the fruits and  secure direct and accurate knowledge  of tlie development that has been going  on here during the past few years.  Sever,!! of the pai-ty had visited the  district, two or three years ago a.nd  were greatly impressed at the change  since then; the quantity of fruit already produced and its exceedingly  fine quality.     They ate all they could.  F. Schneider returned last week  from a brief trip to "Vancouver accompanied by two gentlemen who were  looking for improved fruit lots find  who made some tempting offers for  properties around Keremeos which  caught their fancy. The owners, however, were not anxious to sell and  they left without effecting a purchase!!  They were greatly taken with the valley throughout aud expressed their  determination on leaving to return  again and invest.  Having decided to return east the  undersigned will oiler for sale the  following list of stockjind effects. 1  brown 'mare with foal at side (Clyde)  1 good cow due to calve in October,  1 heifer calf, 3 months old; 45 Pure  bred barred rock hens, 50 pure bred  barred rock chickens, 1 heavy wagon  gear suitable for I horse, 1 set team  harness, 1 Peerless Incubator ;and  brooder, nearly new; 1 'Wheelbarrow  new; 1 scythe, cross-cut saw, shovels,  hoes and a number of tools, 1 ton of  good oats, 2 water barrels, wash tubs,  Dairy utensils including milk pails,  cans,, churn, 8 gal bowl and print, 1  grand Jewel coal or wood stove together with pipes, kettles and pans, 1 new  wash boiler, 1 glass front cupboard,  1 extension table S feet, new; 1 standard sewing machine, nearly new, S  kitchen chairs, 2 rockers, 1 iron bed  spring and mattress, 4i ft.; 2 iron bed  spring:, 3A ft; i yds inlaid linoleum, 2  yds wide, A quantity of dishes, jars  and crocks.
