GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER and BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building Princeton  \A/alterClayton  llarrister. Solicitor, ICte.  MONKY   TO   LOAN  PENTICTON,  B. C.  The Gazette recently paid a visit to  the Oregon property which hus been  under development pretty constantly  since March last and the indications  appeared favorable for reaching the  ore body, Jim McNulty and partner-  are busy driving a crosscut at almost  right angles from the face of the Bahrs  tunnel to catch tho foeitwall of an ore  body which, from surface indications  and the geology of the hill, should  soon be encountered unless the ore  body of which the"y are in quest has  been playing some of tlmse pranks for  which elusive ore bodies are sometimes noted.  The Oregon lies on the .east side of  the Similkameen river between three  and four miles below Hedley and is on  the watershed between Eighteen Mile  and Sixteen Mile Creeks which flow  into the Similkameen.  About six years ago Henry Bahrs  had a bond on the property and ran in  a tunnel to tap an ore body which was  exposed on the surface but appeared  to have miscalculated the shape in  which it was lying for the tunnel apparently ran below it and across the  line of the strike.-. The work now being done is a crosscut from the face of  the Bahrs tunnel and almost at right  angles to it. If the strike of the ore  body should be as the owners believe it  to be, the ore will be struck in the top  of,the crosscut. ���������  Excellent values were obtained from  sampling of various outcrops and  since Bahrs threw up his bond a great  deal of stripping ami trenching has  been done to size up the geology of  the immediate vicinity and ascertain  tho relative positions of the various  lock formations and their trend. This  done, the present work seems well calculated to give results, but nevertheless mining proplems are not always  easy of solution and when they are  finally worked out and the answer to  the riddle is laid bare, one is apt to be  struck with the number of chances  there are for* missing the object sought  to each one there is for finding it,  This feature has been most effectively  illustrated in certain portions of the  Nickel Plate mine and.make some interesting tragic and comic chapters in  in its'history.  The tunnel mouth is on so steep and  rocky a hillside that there is no accommodation for the camp which is  placed over on the Sixteen Mile Creek  slope.  The present working face is now so  far into the rnouutain that it is surprising they are not more troubled  with foul air* from the blasting than  they are. As it, is the smoke and gas  clear themselves ��������� out in about ten  minutes after shooting off. a round of  holes! Although it was a very warm  day when we paid the visit to the  mine little or no inconvenience was  experienced in going to the working  face to see the effects of the. shots  within ten minutes after the round  was fired.  Altogether the outlook seemed very  encouraging and it is to be hoped the  owners may soon have ample return  for the outlay of labor and cash which  it is costing them. Jim McNulty who  is in charge of the work is regular  Pooh-bah and general factotum in his  several capacities of superintendent,  foreman,  able-bodied miner,  chef and  'A  PAYING MINE"  Neighboring Paper Speaks in  Commendatory Terms of B. Cs\ Great  Gold Produce  Under the beading "A Paying  Mine" the Oroville Gazette has the  following on Camp Hedley's big  mine:  "The,Hedley Gazette states that the  output of  the Nickel   Plate_ mine,   at  that place, up  to the   end  of  July of  this year has been   $5.10-1,372.87.    This  is one of the bc;st paying mines in   the  west.    It  is fully  equipped   with ' all  modern machinery and a large cyanide  treatment plant, anel has been   paying  dividends, good fat dividends, annually  for a dozen years.    Less is  said   about  the Nickel  Plate,  and  less  is  known  about the mine arid its  product,   than  probably  any paying    mine    in    the  northwest.     The  reason   for   this    is  that the Nickel Plate is owned   by  individuals who arc not  hawking   stock  in the market.    They have a mine and  they  know   it.    There  is   no  call  for  raising money for operating expenses.  The  mine turns out moiipy monthly,  and all the  owners   have to  do   is   to  spend it, not an unpleasant pastime.  It has always seemed that  the   values  in the mineral de-posits of this country,  where there  are  siich  extensive stir  face  showings, could   hardly  be  concentrated at this  one  particular  spot  in the  great  mineral  zone  along the  international bnuntlai y line.    It is believed that there  are  other   lecalities  in this mineral belt west of Grenwood  and   Pheonix    where"   paying    mines  can be made, when the right methods  are.   applied    toward    making    them.  Neither is it beleived that  an   imaginary line separating tho states and the  dominion is a cleavage  in   the  formation, upon   the  one  side  of  which   is  pay ground, and on the  other  barren  ground.    The jN'icltel Plate  is  a  wonderful mine, yet it .can, hardly  be  located on the only paying ledge' in   this  north country,  where so many ledges  are to be found,    it is hardly to"be ex-'  pected thata great many Nickel Plates  are to be found in this  section  of  the  west, yet it is felt  that  when  depth  is obtained on a number of  promising  properties, now   in   various  stages  of  development,.other paying mines will  be'made in  this  locality,   considering  Hedley to be within the limits  of this  vicinity.  ATTEMPTED MURDER  AT OKANAGAN FALLS  Foreigner  Fires Three  Shots   at   Road  ' i   Foreman and Is Now a Fugitive  Okanagan Falls was treateel to a sensation on Tuesday morning when a  foreigner who was working on the  road and had taken a grudge against  the road foreman, J". A. Da vies, sought  to kill hnu. ,.  At daybreak that morning the foreigner who is gene-rally known as  Dutchy waitetl at the stable for the  foreman and when he came along fired  three shots at him but none of the  shots hit him. Before he could be  secured be mack* off. The matter was  .-cioii rcpoitcd and constable McGuffie  of Ivere-meos who was over there was  despatched after him. At latest reports the assailant was still at large.  The man is believed to be insane, or at  all events, partially so, and the sooner  be is rounded up and taken care of the  bei ter.  Later���������Further- details give the  name of the man as Henry Thorsden.  He had formerly worked on the road  but had quit some time before. After  the shooting Davies went to his quarters and got his rifle and followed.his  assailant for a piece: He could have  lamed him so as to prevent him from  getting away but, as no one" was near  to see what was happening be con'chul  ed it would be unwise te; do.so.

The sports committee are arranging  lor two of the best days' sport ever  held  in the Okanagan.  In   expressing a more or less unfavorable opinion  of the. Chicago Vaudeville  company  which imposed on the  show-going  people of  Hedley on the  two nights  of the Labor Day celebration, we find  that we were altogether  too   complimentary.     The  editor did  not  see  any of the  performances and  was  going on   the  strength  of a few  casual  expressions from others.    It is  now. quite  plain   that   they   were  in  every way   the  punkest of the  punk  and followed the general rule that the  concern   which is afraid- to  announce  an   appearance a  reasonable length of  time   beforehand, -is safe to stay away  from.     It may  be unfair  to condemn  every  member  of the   troupe  on   the  actions  of some of them  and  we do  not wish to do so,   but there were two  females in the bunch that for gall anel  ignorance,   went the  limit.    They entered   a garden   on   Kingston   avenue  where no one happened to be at hemic*,  and   a  pair  of sows   would   not   have  acted    less  circumspectly   than   they  did.     They  stole   enough   flowers   to  load   themselves up  with  .-u-mfuls   of  asters,   dahlias  and   roses   and   what  they took was  of little consequence in  comparison   with   the- injury   they did  and the vandalism they were, guilty of.  One rare  and  expensive  dahlia plant  that   was   loaded  with    beauties   was  badly   wrecked.     In   fact   about   the  only  thing   they didn't elo  that a pair  of sows   might have  done,   was  in refraining  from   rooting 'up   the  lawn,  and   had   nature provided   them   with  the    reepiisite   proboscis   they   might  have*  done   that  too.      Unfortunately  those-   who   saw   them   at  it   unduly  favored   them by making no   mention  of it until after they were out of town  or the pa iu, would have seen the inside  of a Hedley lock-up and been taught a  lesson they were very badly in need of.  Much speculation has existed  through British Columbia and particularly in this district as to the relations subsisting between the C. V. R.  and the Kettle Valley railroads. That  a very close alliance existed was the  general belief, but many held that it  amounted to out and out ownership  by  the'big corporation.  The statement given out by Sfr  Thomas Shaughnessy last week practically sets the matter at rest and  shows that the C. P. R.'s president regards the Kettle Valley line as part  and parcel of the C. P. R. system.  But the part of his pronouncement  which interested people - in this section most was his statement as to time  of operation and also the uses to  which the new portion may be put. As  to time he did not merely hold out  the hope of completion in 1915, but  definitely announced operation in 1915.  And for its uses one important thing  which he pointed out was that it would  relieve congestion of the main line  and when necessary could be substituted for entire main line traffic  While important changes in route and  roadbed of the main line were being  made. Thus it is quite probable that  towns along the Columbia & Western  and Kettle Valley lines will within a  year and a half more see the long  overland trains of ten or a dozen  sleepers and diners passing through.  On Monday F. C Hitchcock, general mnimgcr for MacArthur Brothers  Company, established his headquarters temporarily in the Empress hotel  and several days were spent in assigning stations to tendereis.  The work will begin on A. F.. McDonald's ranch, about a mile and a  half from Hope across the Coquihalla  River, where a camp is now established. All necessary supplies have been  ordered and will be brought over the  Canadian Northern line.  C. C. Tinkler, general superintendent, will supervise all the; wen k from  Hope. His son, C. R. Tinkler, left  yesterday morning for the summit by  way of Spence's Bridge and Merritt,  and will take charge of work beginning at-the east end of the contract.  The route by the Coquihalla canyon  has been selected and the work on the  first section will be rushed. Nine  station gangs will begin at once and  will be accommodated at the first  camp.  For the- rapid prosecution of the  work it has been decided to build a  wagon road to Lardener's Creek, a distance of about 17 miles. From there  on supplies will be taken on by pack  train. The.cost of construction of the  wagon roael is estimated at about  $200,000.  A.B. Bennett has taken the contract  for all the freighting and packing required for the whole of the construction iiutl is now buying horses for the  teaming.  Mr. Tinkler states that, while every  effort will be made to hasten the completion of the contract, the track  across the townsite of Hope, the  bridge over the Coquihalla and the  first mile eastward will be left to the  last.���������Review.  MOUNTAIN AIR PANACEA  "LIGHTS OUT " FOR BILL  Notorious Robber, Bill Miner, Dies  in a  Georgia  Prison  Vancouvr, B.C..Sept.-L���������A despatch  from Millidgcvillc-, Ga.. tonight announces flic death at the Georgia state  prison farm on Wednesday of Bill  Miner, robber and jail breaker, whoso  picturesque career included clashes  with ihe- law of a score of Canadian  provinces, especially British Columbia.

He  we-s sentenced with two companions  in Ne.-w We-Miiinslor prison from  which he escaped a year later.  Hedley dunned him as a resident  off and on about a year between his  Wlionnock robbery of a. C. P. R. train  in Sept l!)0-l and the time he began  to plan for the Ducks hold-up in the  first week in Mav 1900.  Hugh   Gibson'spent Monday  night  in Oroville  on his way to his home at  Riverside.   He* is not returning to that  place to stay.     Mr. Gibson, who passed through here some weeks ago looking for  work at some  of  the  mines,  secured a position as blacksmith with  the Nickel Plate mine, at Hedley, and"'  be  is stationed  high   up   among   the  clouds  on   the  mountain   where   the  working  are   situated.      He   was ���������enthusiastic  in his praise of the bracing  atmosphere at the  altitude  where he  is  living.     "When be secured  the job  Mr.  Gibson  was nervous,  run  down,  had lost  his appetite  and was feeling  punk  generally.    He is now as full of  ginger  as a bild dog  hot on  the trail.  He considers   the transformation   verging  on the   miraculous,   and he  proposes  to stay  with his  job so long as  lie can Jiold it.    The object of bis trip  to Riverside  at this time  is to get his  wife, baby and household traps, settle  down at the  Nickol Plate for the winter,  and extract a 11 the good possible  out of the upper air.���������Oroville Gazette.

The reason given for the change seems  sound.    A  writer in   the   Oroville Gazette who'ndveioate's-tlie change claims  that observation   of the habits of deer  will show that the  propagation period  of these;  animals begins early in October and   continues from that until the  end of the year, and   t" permit the destruction  of ���������them  during   that period,  is to allow   the very' thing which  will  help   most to   hiing about their extermination.   ' In the  opinion of the majority  of hunters   in thL- part of British   Columbia,   it  will   be;   found  that  this contention   is correct and applies  on this  side of the  linens much   as in  Washington.    If the Piovincinl Game  Warden   possesses  the knowledge  of  game and   their habits   that be is supposed to   have, and is  desirous of having   them   preserved   as effectively  as  possible   he; should  be; the   one to lead  in  a  refotmof  this   kind,   instead  of  having   to   be   urged   to   it   by   those  whom he i.*-, supposed to watch.

Of  course- it may be a very good thing for  sundry 'Canadian lawyers   to get some;  fat  pickings    out of   the   thing,    but  Canada   has no right   to the. person of  Harry Thaw and the pe-ople- of Canada  do   not want  him or bis   unsavory reputation.       Common   sense   makes   it  obvious   that he  is by the   laws of the  United   States    the;    propel ty   of    the  authorities  of that country and   that  is   where   be-should   lie* sent   with   the  least possible delay.     11 is not sensible;  and not   neighborly to   harbor him on  this side; of flic line- a single boui  long- j be found within 3000 or 4000 ft. of the  er Ibaii   it is possible   to get. him   hack | surface,  with  occasional   instances  of  'acroi-s   the   border, and the   sooner lie  "*oes the better.     Is the credit ami the i  wishes of the   people of Canada, not to  There is possibly no industry in  which more theorizing has been indulged than that of mining, and no  subject in the wide range of subjects  pertaining to mining than that of relation of depth to values. Horace V.  Wirichcll has' for years occupied a  prominent position in the mining  world as a geologist who has specialized in economic geology and had wide  experience, but. lie has made his mistakes as well as the rest. It has been  said that he had examined the Nickel  Plate for the Daly interests in the  earlier stages of the mine, but this  claim appears to have been inaccurate.  He was employee1, by the Daly interests to examine and report on properties for them, and one of the properties he turned down was the Hidden Crcelv, which is frequently cited  rgainst him by those who dislike his  pessimism.  Nevertheless he is a man of wide  experience and his views on a subject  of this kind should command attention. " Here is an extract from an article by him in the Mining and Scientific Fress:  'What is really 'depth' i'or one vein  or ore deposit as it is found today,  may be nearly brought to the surface  by erosion and .earth movements, and  there may be no way to compare it  with other deposits of the same region  but "much more recent or different  origin.  Iieliition of Depth to A'aluc  "Such  considerations impel  caution  against the ever imminent danger of  generalization.    And  yet,  it must be  possible to generalize to sonic extent.  Some experience has  been had. some  mines have been studied;  it is known  whether, as a matter of fact, ore tle-  nbsits resemble wedges with the narrow edge up (or down).   And candor  compels us to admit that, on the whole,  mines are usually of lower grade and  less productive in depth, almost without exception  and   without   reference  to  their  genesis   (magmatic  segregations alone excepted).    It is not possible to specify closely the depth  at  which impoverishment begins, nor to  predict the point of serious decline or  | ultimate demise of a-mine.    But this  j is because of our lack of understand-  1 ing of its orisrin and history.    I fully  believe that the. clay will  come when  ���������uch  forecasts  can  be  made   with  a.  irur   degree   of   confidence,   although  they  will  always  be   subject  to  correction  by the  possibility  of  faulting  and  duplication of ore or its  enrichment through fissures which occur at  greater depth and have not been developed-at the time of examination.  "In general, veins do become smaller and tighter with depth; mines are  surely exhausted and worked out; old  mining districts are abandoned and  new* ones discovered. Ores become  baser, more complex, and less valuable. Free-milling ores, oxides, carbonates, and chlorides are conspicuous by their general absence below  the depth of 2,000 ft., and although it  is possible to imagine their, formation  and to write the chemical equations  expressing the theoretical mode of  their formation in the deep, yet they  are not found in minable quantity.  The individual who, or mining company which goes on prospecting to  much greater depth after the ore has,  for a Series of years, declined in value  and quantity until it is too. poor to  pay, is in most cases throwing money  away.  "The future mining industry will  consist more in the treatment of lower  grade ores by more refined and economical methods and in the opening of  ore deposits whose presence was not  conspicuous on the surface and whose  existence was consequently overlooked, than through tho pursuit of  veins by improved mechanical devices  to much greater depths than are now  attained. And in my humble opinion,  the all-sufficient reason is because  the groat preponderance of ores is to  PALft6E,  Livery, Feed & Sale Stables  HEDLEY   ii. O.

On Friday evening a dance was given in  their honor* after Che moving pictur-e  show.  A sad bereavement came to Mr. and  -Mrs. W.   C. McLean -of  Princeton  in  -    the loss'of an  only son,   a  boy of 12  years of age,  following  an  operation  for appendicitis.  Geo. Allison's foot has been making  more satisfactory progress in healing  - up during the past week and if duo  -care is observed to prevent it from  further- injury there should be little  further- trouble.  To maintain the truth of.a time-  honored adage a few more, white  horses should be imported to Hiidley  forthwith. The present supply of  that color of steed is becoming peril-;  ously inaclequate.  He'dley choir* went to Keremeos' on  Tuesday night where they gave a'pro-  gramrtic similar to that given here  two weeks ago, and it of course goes  without saying that their efforts were  appreciated by the music-loving people  , .of Keremeos.  It has been suggested that the name  of the Hedley baseball club be changed  to the "The Clan Corrigan". The  plentiful use of that re-agent along  "with the bit of silicic, which Roy  brought made a very good flux i'or the  games on Labor Day.

Forbes who has been working  on the new bridge across the Tulameen at Princton had the misfortune  to break his leg on Sunday. evening.  He was riding in from hunting in  Company with N. Huston when his  horse fell, and one foot getting under  the horse, the leg snapped a little  above the ankle. The mishap will  give him an enforced holiday of a  couple of months or so.  Finlny Fraser is at present working  in Stewart's Camp at Glacier. Doubtless he is taking a hand in the building of that fairy village in the clouds  which lias been so wonderfully dc-  scibed in the magazines and newspapers. To get away from trouble-  from the drifting snow the floors eif  the bouses are to be S feet or more  above the ground. There will be one  sidewalk down the centre of each  street and little bridges from the side  -walk to tho doors of the houses.  The Labor Dayhnsiness has all been  settled up and the Miners' Union who  conducted the sports are to be congratulated on the success, for all are  satisfied. "A-fair field and no favor"  was the motto followed by the miners  in their conduct 'o'f -'the "gurries and  that, 'after all, is 'the 'suVes't way to  satisfy all parties. In the competitions in "which they themselves loeVki  part they gave a good account o'f  "themselves. Their 'drilling team did  them credit and their football teain!  played a -good clean game and kept,  their opponents hustling. The order  'maintained was also a feature on  "which they are to he congratulated.  XV. A. McLean was down on Saturday, having'come with Mrs. McLean  and Mrs. 'Gillespie and lhe went back  again on Sunday. He .receiver! word  on Saturday afternoon from Mr. Turner that-work oh the 'auto road was  to be shutdown. The mon'ey tightness  is .being felt in the provincial (tt easury  as well as elsewhere, and portions of  the trans:pr-ovincial highway that are  being'shut down first are those not  required for- immediate traffic but  supplying .links, on portions where  there is no existing road.and cannot  come into general use until the whole  is finished. The portion being -built by  Mr. McLean unfortunately happens to  be one-of these'.  Angus Stewart, well .known in Hedley, is the superintendent in charge of  the installation of plant for the big  tunnel which the C. P.

He has a  master mechanic under linn and. a  camp which has been established to  undertake the work is known as  Stewart's Camp. During the past few  years he has " been employed by the'  railways in various co'tninisions of the  same ;kind a King the Fraser- and at  other points on their several lines and  has made good. There is never* any  favoritism with the big corporation in  their choice of employees, and capability and results are the only things  that count. Angus' Hedley friends  will be pleased to learn of his preferment and -more pleased to iiote this,  proof that he hiis the merit which has  derservecJ it.  The last number of the Fruit and  Farm magazine is a good one and the'  value rif the number* lies in the practical character'of its contents for-"the  mixed farmer and orchardist.

The  company is to be known as the Oro  Placer with head office in Spokane  arid a branch office in Oroville.  About ten days ago the Gazette paid  ix  visit  to   George  Call ill's   ranch   at  Camp  Rest and  was   pleasantly surprised at the  amount of improvement  made and the general character of his  holdings.  There are on it some beautiful mountain  slopes facing  the  south  and   west  with  rich dark  and brown  soil and beautiful stretches of meadow  land along Eighteen-mile creek which  is made  good use of in   irrigating the  land.  There is about five miles of wire  fencing and a mile or so of ditch which  is   well   calculated  to irrigate  a large  acreage.     A  good  new barn   has re-'  ceritly  beeii   erected  and  a new  two-  storey house ol." peeled logs is in course  of erection.     This year a good crop of  timothy and clover has been saved for  fodder and acres of it remain uncut as  no   use   can be   made  of it in the absence of a road to take it out.    When  that   disability is   overcome   a   little  later on  and  more  of  tlie   ranch   is  brought  under cultivation it is bound  to prove a most valuable property.  Don't forget that the hunting season  opens on Sept. 1st and that Louis C.  Reills & Co. has a full line of guns and  ammunition on hand at the lowest  prices.

'    ���������  ��������� J. A. Brown and R. H. Carmichael,  left last wee'k on a hunting expedition, so .we hope when they come  back to hear some stirring events, and  a good bag of game.  Miss Freida Riehter after spendinir  her summer holidays at home, left  Monday evening for Victoria, where  she will continue her course at the  Convent of St. Anne.  Billy Hah) ing was in town last Saturday, and reports that he is in a good  way to make his fortune out of hogs,  especially by feeding them on clover,  alfalfa and  titters.  A large number of Italians arrived in  town Tuesday morning. Four autos  were needed to convey them from  Penticton. They went up the line the  same day as far as Princeton.  Dont" forget that next Thuisday the  llth, the Women's Institute will bold  a Social in the Park Grounds. Everybody, welcome. Come and get some  Ice Cream. Ugh! If it does not get  warmer, hot chicken tamalies will go  better.  Although the hunting season has  been in a. week or more, we have as yet  ���������with the exception of the previous item,  had no reports of any game being captured, but as several parties are now  out, we. expect to hear ofa number- of  deer* being killed.  Mr. Alf Mills and wire and Mrs. T.  Strong, of uhesley, Bruce Co.,*.Ont,  are visiting tin- valley for a -couple/of  weeks,'and ai e at present staying'with  Mr. McCurdy and Mrs. Manery. The  meeting after so many years has  given them great pleasure. Mr. Mills,  although much taken up by the splendid fruit grown" in .the valley, is not  Over elated and thinks, with the' fruit  exception, the country has to go some  to beat good old Ontario.  For the benefit of those that don't  know, it is illegal.to shoot game on  any Indian Reserve in the province.  An Indian came into town the other-  day saying that some party had been  shooting grouse on the .reserve, and  that when told not to shoot on" the  reserve'showed their badge and told  the Indian that they had a licence.  The Indian not knowing quite what  difference the licence made came into  town to find out, and being told, made  the leinark that the next olfence  would be dealt with by the authorities. - -   ��������� '���������      '    ���������  Airs.

'    Saturday   evening,    they  mideup their mind to have a hunting  trip on Sunday; they went up on   the  Barcelo range, but  unluckily did not  get much sport; but when they return  ed they said that they had no  conception of this beautiful valley, nntil.they  veiwed it from the   hills.     Air.  Booth  remarked it  was   the  most beautiful  sight he had  ever  witnessed,   and  in  consequence  is dead   struck   on    the  valley as a whole.

CLOSING    OUT    SALE  ���������is*  ������  After the exceptional cool spell, a  few peaches were shipped on Monday,  but not one hundreth part to supply  the demand of even that day. It is  hoped the weather brightens up and  gets wanner so that the Western,  Boundary, and Ivootenay consumeis  can get their fill.  The Sunday School, which has not  been going as well as it might have  done, for some time in the past, took  a grand turn Sunday hist, when 44  new and old members turned out.  Every teacher is very jubilant over  the outcome, and hope to continue to  increase the attendance.  An Indian by the name of John  Quoltier is in the bands of the local  authorities, and is in the. skookum  house awaiting trial for drunkeness.  and some white man better look to his  laurels if Johnny squeals. This is a  case again where a whiteman or men  are to blame and if caught should be  made an example of.  Four young sportsmen. John Har-  greaves, Gint Cawston, Lloyd Armstrong and Dick Leekie. started out  Saturday afternoon with their rifles  and a pack horse in quest eif game.  They struck south over the big mountain and on Sunday afternoon returned after having a regular good time  and hunt. They got a fine deer  which Johnny had the good fortune  to get and a few brace of grouse.  Harry Heinbccker, late of Coahnont,  passed   through on   Alonday evening's  train   for his  old home at Fort  William, Ont.     Harry is very well known  in   the   Similkameen   as   a   good   all  round jolly fellow and fond of all clean  sports.     He  played   for Princeton lacrosse   team  a few times and  was in  the   representative lacrosse1  team who  went to   Penticton last year.    He has  been tho accountant of the Columbia  Coal  arid  Coke  Co. at Coahnont for  the past four years.    When interviewed  at  the depot he   stated   that   he  would bo in Ontario about six months  but would not definitely state that he  would come back.    Nevertheless, if he  does come  back  he  will be sure of a  hearty welcome from his many friends.  Concentrated sarcasm for some of  the young financiers, so-called, of .the  country, was offered by Mr. W. San-  ford Evans, of "Winnipeg, in an address  to the Association o'f Canadian Clubs  in conference at Hamilton. "The  building of the Canadian Pacific Railway with shovel and pick was the best  university this country ever had," he  said. "It made for sturdy men. Do  you know what Canadians would say  to that kind of work now? They  would say that it is not white man's  work.  Playing "With Finance  "It would nevertheless be a good  thing for the country if some of the  young men who are now playing with  the country's finances were now and  for the next ten years busy on railroad construction Avork. The present  financial stringency is the best thing  that could have happened to Canada.  It is a question whether it will last  long   enough,   however.  "It has demonstrated as nothing else  could the inherent soundness of our  financial institutions, and it has put  a temporary check on things which  are not sound. The present stringency is caused by conditions in Europe, which check the flow of outside  money into Canada. When this condition occurs it means a little squeezing for all of us to get into our  cramped quarters, but that is about all.  Attitude Towards Work  "The class will rule this country  which first has the right attitude towards work, and which secondly practises sound finance. There is no honest work which is not white man's  work and e;ood for native Canadians."  ���������Monetary Times.
