Office on North   Main   Street.  NORLEY F. TUNBRIDGE  In tho recent bye-election in Mac-  donald as well as in the provincial  election in Saskatchewan where reciprocity was made an issue, the advocates of reciprocity made the most  use? they possibly could of .1 letter-  written to the Grain Growers' Guide  hy a man named Coleman' who was  sales agent for the ,1. I. Case Threshing Machine Co., of Racine, Wis., in  which he said that the reason his firm  had raised the price of agriculture implements to the farmers was that the,  Government had increased the duty.  Now it happens that no change  whatever was made in the tariff rate  but that the greed of the company itself had made them increase the price  of their 'implements , and when the  (Jom{KS.uy-:-'Vo.i'i.>..diiUi.*indedvto. give- an  explanation of the lie published by  their sales agent Coleman, the treasurer, F. Leo Norton, came out with  .���������mother letter repudiating the statement of Coleman and saying that the  increase was made* because they had  altered the rate of discount given to  the trade. He said that the tariff was  the same now as it had been for several years past and the statement  made by Coleman was not true and  had never been authorized by the  company. In spite of the denial, however, the advocates-, of reciprocity  continued to reiterate the Coleman  charge until the last vote was cast in  the Macdonald election.  Is   it   any   wonder  the farmers of  Macdonald turned them down cold!**  The Liberal press has been complaining of some dismissals from the outside civil service hy, the government.  In view of their complaints, and the  virtuous attitude they have assumed,  it is interesting to'present the record  of the Laurier administration when it  came into power in 1800, Nine months-  after the Laurier government assumed  office a return   was  nil led  for  in the  Senate of the dismiss-ds  up to  that  V-*  time.       The  return'-'js a remarkable,*  document and con tain's 3d pages.' while  it contains only a   partial  list of  the  dismissals. \ -  In   the   Indian   department the dis  -| ���������  missals ran up to,20.- The axe fell  partictilarly freely in, the customs department where in the nine months  81 employees were'dismissed In make,  way for good liberals; In no case was  there an investigation.  many HEAps i-'KLr.  The then Minister of Public Works  dismissed in the first nine months 04-  In the department of Inland Revenue  46 employees were removed, and in  the majority of cases it was frankly  stated that it was at the request of a  member of parliament." This was apparently the main reason for dismissals at that time.  lilG  SWEEP  THEKE  In the Fisheries service the Liberal  government-- worked ^overtime in get-  ting.rid of Conservatives and no less  than 129 members of the civil service  were removed from office to give  hungry Liberals -jobs. The explanation given for the majority of the dismissals was "active ;and offensive-  partisanship," which wits a favorite  excuse to cover up a- bald dismissal.  The axe was not employed quite so  freely iii the Marine service, and only  32 were removed by tlie Minister." The'  department of J'u������tiee has not as many  employees and its list is smaller, running to eleven, in every case except  two there was no notice given, and  this is true, of a large percentage of  the Liberal dismissals. The decency  of a regular notice to give, the dismissed man an opportunity to find new  .employment was not followed. It was  simply a case of "off with his head''.  A BEAUTIFUL ESTATE  Half Dozen Steam Shovels to Work on J The Similkameen Fruit Lands Co.  Have  the V. V: & E.  (Grand Forks Gazette.)  .1. H. Kennedy, assistant engineer of  the V. V. <te E. railway, which is the  Great Northern line enroute from the  Boundary to Vancouver, was in Grand  Forks on Monday on his way to Tulameen and Coahnont, the steel head,  from where he will go over tlie line  now being built between Coalmont  and Coquihalla summit.  "Thex-e wjll be five or six big steam  shovels, put to work there in a short  time" said Mr. Kennedy.  "One of these will probably he taken  from Vancouver where ' the work  which it had to do is completed. The  others will be brought in from other  points on the line. It is our intention  to push the work as rapidly as possible." ..  Wonderful Holding in the R Ranch  v    Too Soon, But Not Much  The Princeton Star was premature  in its statement that on Saturday,  October. 19th the full consideration of  $150,000 which was called for in the  bond for the Windfall group had been  paid. No one here doubts that the  deal is going through and that in a  short time the properties will be formally taken over from tho former owners by the Hedley Gold Mining Co.,  but tho event did not take place on  the 19th and in fact has not taken  place yet. The Stai's informant was  apparently not in possession of (lie inside information of which he claimed  to be possessed, but the Star itself we  arc quite sure published the item in  good faith. LATER���������As we go to press  we learn that the deal was consummated Oct. 30th and full consideration  paid over.  GENERAL NEWS  Solicitors, Notaries Public,  Conveyancers, Etc.

P.  for North Simcoe, commenting on the  wholesale slaughter of the Liberals in  the House last session, said: "'The  proscription lists of Marias and Sulla,  the tyrants of ancient Rome;, were not  to be compared with the lists prepared  after the elections of 1890. Ilundreds  of men were thrown out of office without any reason being given for their  dismissal. The members of the late;  government never for a moment ceased to make the open boast that they  believed in and always practised the  spoils system and that they were go  ing to practise it.*'  Sir William MaeKenzie is to make  Winnipeg his headquarters for some  time to conic.  Alaska Progressives have elected  their candidates and Roosevelt's .supporters are jubilant thereat.  Hon. Mackenzie Bowell fell down  the steps at the Albany Club, Toronto,  and was rather severely injured.  Bank clearings for the week show a  large increase over that of the same  week last year.  Mr. Marechal, a ptominet Montreal  lawyer, is likely to succeed Hon. F. D.  Monk. Mr. Casgrain was too ill to  accept so arduous a portfolio as that  of Public Works.  Five thousand freight: handlers on  the C. P. R. are asking for an increase  of pay and threaten to strike if the demand is'not grunted.

Over eight million bushels of prairie  wheat are stored iu terminal elevators  as against a little less than six millions for a corresponding date of lust  . Seane years ago the Gazette in giving a rather extensive write-up o"f the  lands of the lower Similkameen and  particularly those about Keremeos  had a description of the R ranch then  owned by Mis. Lowe, and that write-  up went into the historical side of it  as well as giving a description of the  holding, itself.  Since then the estate has been acquired by the Similkameen Fruit  Lands Co., a wealthy, stiong concern  made up of Winnipeg capitalists whom  R. L. Cawston managed to interest in  the property and secured the transfer  to them.; In addition to the estate of  5029 acres then held by Mrs. Lowe in  which Mr. Cawston also held an interest there has since been added by purchase 100 acres of the Barcello estate  consisting of lots 2755 and 113,' and we  think we are safe in saying that ideal  as the land about the old homestead  of the It ranch is known to be this portion of the Barcello lands which has  been added is the very cream <if the  valley.  Already the land has all been plot- ���������  ted off into five acre fruit lots arid an  irrigation ditch or canal has been constructed to supply water for it. While  the land has bee/n put cm the market  no effort has been made to push the  sale of it and the attention of the company is being directed to the improvement of the property. A largo traction engine is being brought in and'  with it are gang plows, a porcable  sawmill add a brush cutter to be driven by the traction engine. This latter  will cut off saplings 4 inches through  as easily as the ordinary .reaper will  take a bladeof grass.  It is most  pleasing to meet Mr. and  ,-���������  Mrs.   R. L. Cawston installed again in  the    old   homestead    where   in   years  gone   by :l.hey*'werH, Gained, for  their  kind hospitality,   which lias in nowise,  abated with the .years.   It was twenty-  eight years  ago  when  Mrs. Cawston  first took up her abode- in the Similkameen valley,  although  for   the   past  eight years she has resided in Ontario.  Mr. Cawston  is the  local  superintendent for the Similkaineen Fruit Lands  Co.  and a   busy man he  is.    There is  something so eternally fitting in seeing him again at  the  helm  directing  operations on   the  estate   which   his  own efforts in earlier days got together and built up, and the  company are  fortunate indeed in  having at the present time the  benefit of his experience  and   knowledge of  the district and of  the  business.      If   in   the;   future  he  should wish to retire and take it easier  than he is now able to do.no one could  well blame him,   for he and Mrs. Cawston have already done their share."  What the coming decade has in  store for this beautiful spot only the  brightest optimist should hazard a  guess and then he is apt to fall far  short.  THE RICHELIEU ELECTION  I year.  !

J. Cat-din, Liberal, by a majority of 301. the complexion of the division remaining unchanged. No member of the Government visited the  constituency during the campaign,  the leading speaker on the Conservative side being Sir Kodolphu Forgot.  The Liberals, on the other hand, had  the advantage of a meeting addressed  hy Sir Wilfrid Laurier.  The Liberal majority iu 1908 was  1029; in 1911 it was 734 and the majority this time is only 301. Sir Wilfrid Laurier in the campaign boasted  that the majority would be: so large as  to offset the Conservative victory of  September 21, 1911.  By-elections I'or the Ontario Logis  lature are being held in both East  Middlesex and North Waterloo and in  neither constituency have* Liberals  any candidate; in the field. The government candidates are- being opposed  by Independents. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE OCT 81. UJ12.  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

If Lawson can  shed as much light in his present  series ot. articles attacking what he  calls "Tlie System" as he; did in'the  former he will be well worth reading.  Even if he should be; all the, scall.-i.wag  his detractors have painted him, hear  him ncit for what he may be but for  the message lie may brim;.  THE, FORGOTTEN   LESSON  ���������Frenzied Fin-  Th on fas  Lawson  eif  ance" fame   has resumed  his  attaedes  on the Wall St. bunch in Everybody.s  niagazine.    It is funny how  soon   the  public   forget   a  lesson taught   them.  and while, it has become c minion  and  ��������� even fashionable   to decry .Lawson as  a fakir    it  is  nevertheless undeniable  :   that he accomplished a great amount  of good by his exposure-s  in "Frenzied  Finance.''    As a result of those exposures   in   which   he  showed    that  the  enormous sums'of money  amassed by  the   large    stock    companies    in    iife  insurance   which   properly    belonged  to   the   policy-holders    because   they  were   the ones  who  had  contributed  almost every  dollar of those reserves  which were being  used   by  the more  influential  of these   stockholders    in  manipulating the stock   markets and  raking in swag for their own personal  gain, the; state was compelled to institute an inquiry into the correctness or  otherwise of his allegations   and the  Hughes commission    went   to work.  Then it was seen that leading companies like the New York Life and the  Equitable    whose   general    managers  enjoyed reputations  bordering on the  inimaculate   were  among  the worst.  They not only  allowed  the  available  funds at their control   to  be  used   in  this way    but for their own   personal  gain    .absorbed  profits   which should  have gone to the policy-holders.     The  exposures really killed some of these  men and they died shortly afterwards.  Canadian agents of these concern**-, in  some cases had to give up their agencies  and take  to  Canadian   companies   or  they could write no new business.  Then the next, stage in the. movement so far as we in Canada are con-  i-oiice-rned was the; agitation in the  Canadian House of Commons which  compelled the government to appoint  a board of inquiry to examine into the  working of the Canadian life insurance companies, and the huge blue:  books containing the evidence obtained are still extant and show .some  rather peculiar things that might  .shock some of those, who think that  all our companies are like Ca-sat's  wife. Even some stock-holding directors of Canadian companies could get  money on short loans of $40,0(10 at a  time at whatever rate of iuterest they  might care to pay and without the  nature of security which the banks  would demand for like accommodation.    A noted feature which came up ' August 27th, 1012.  Tlie' verdict in the Richelieu b'ye-  electiiin bears out the statement so  frequently made; of late "that the  people of Quebec are not opposed to  Canada doing her share towards the  maintenance of the British navy.  This was the first- contest in Canada  wheie; aid to the navy was made an  issue and the- result is a sufficient  warrant to Premier Borden to assume  that Quebec is not opposed to .effective  aid being given by Canada. The reduction of tlit; majority from 734 to  301 is quite as emphatic as it would  have been if the former majority Had  been only 400 and Cardin's opponent  had now been elected by the smaller  majority of 33. No matter how substantial may be the aid which Canada  may now give nor what shape it may  take, we must not forget that Canada  must bear the stigma of having held  back until the Australasians set the  example, for us. Let that circumstance tend to keep us humble.    .'

The News-Advertiser* is giving a  handsome premium of Premier' Boi-deri  and his cabinet which old and new  subscribers will appreciate. Besides,  the News-Advertiser is the one provincial paper that the man who wants  reliable news can not afford to do with  out. Its hews'service'is very complete  and its editorials'.ai-e both the fairest  and most up-to-date of any of the; provincial dailies.

A'spiit east of  the school is being cleared off and  flooded to form an eipen rink which  will be quite serviceable here as the  snowfall 'never amounts to anything  and the location is sheltered from the  winds that blow out'on the flat.  Danny McEuchern's road gang are  making repairs to a bridge on the  Penticton-Keremeos7 rq'ad at Joe Mat-  sel's and as a result the autos plying  on the route have had to ford the  creek. Last week Tweddle's auto outbound with Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Taylor  on board sustained a broken bevel  wheel and had to get Joe Marsel's  team to take them back to the Central  Hotel where Weiby's auto took them  through next day making the two  reund trips in the day. The repairs on  that particular- bridge cannot be completed any too soon to suit the auto  men.  The many friends of Jack Raitor  were pleased to see him back at hi.-  post as station agent for- the Great  Northern at Hedley. He returned on  Thursday last and appears to have  fully recovered from the recent illness  which compelled him to give up work  early in the summer. Obliging, even  tempered and correct in his work he  is one of the few employees of that  company representing them on this  side of the . liit'c who for civility and  capability measure up to what Canadians who are used to Canadian lines  expect of men in a similar position.  The Education Department have  sent a new Hag for use on the Hedley  school. The trustees are making arrangements to have the.flag pole taken  down and a new rope put on. The  Gazette has heard a hint that certain  boys around town know what became  of the rope. The thing at all events is  worth investigating and if the parents  of these boys are made to pay the  whack for getting a new rope in position (as they ought to be for there is  no reason why the public should In-  taxed for repairing the damage done  by boys whose parents do not try to  control them) it will have a, salutary  effect in preventing a repetition of the  offence.  Mr.   J'. F.   Mosby, secretary  of  the  Gold Plate Mine* Co.,   is.expected back  froni  Victoria,  in a few days when it  will   be known   more definitely   what  the  future policy   in connection   with  Golden Zone operations is likely to be.  During  the past week something resembling    a. crisis   in   its  affairs has  been shaping.    Whether- it is due to  misunderstanding or too  much understanding  remains   to be   seen.      Mr.  Brookes  and   Mr. Mosby are   both believed to be in Victoria now,  and that  is the  head   office  of the   company.  Rumor has been busy I'or the past few  days���������in  fact  working over-time, n-titl  when something more tangible than  rumor develops it will be time enough  to attempt to deal with details.

All of the addresses and papers1 contained therein  will repay careful perusal and study  on the part of all who received the report; and while the. press is often  worked for the advancement eif movements that concern the few and often  minister only to the self-interest or  vain-glory of some, the work' of this  particular association is something  that no publisher will be disposed to  ignore and they will find in the report  much that they caii pass onto their  readers i'n the form of timely paragraphs dealing with the truths set  forth.

James Callaghan, owner of' Lot��������� 15,  occupied by G. S. Tickell, was in town  the end of last week for a short while.  Miss Florence Daly while up the  Aslui'ilti on their last trip bad the  great satisfaction eif putting the first  notch in 'her rifle as she killed her fir.-t  deer with a fine shot.  The   colder  weather   around   Ooal-  lnont and-Princeton makes it hard for  the   "Molasses Limited" to  thin down  .enough  so as  to reach   Keremeos  not  less than three or four hours late.  William   R. Hope,   better known as  'Billy, went-   up to Ooalmont  Saturday  last to put in a few days hunting, but  really we  think it is toge-t into training for the big dance on November 1st.  IT hay is eighteen dollars a ton in  October how much will it be. in March;**  also spuds which are pretty low at  twelve dollars a ton will without a  doubt go higher until they 'reach a  good prici* long before next spring.  Dr. H. H. George, V. S.. wife and  two children-came'in from Kamloops  and are now staying at tlie-Koretneos  hotel. Dr. George for the past two  months has been taking Dominion.  ���������Veterinary Surgeon. W. Thomson's,  place during the-hitter's severe illness.  Maurice Daly left on 'Monday's train  for Spokane where be will go to the  Gonzaga College to take,up studies.  Maurice will be very much missed  especially by those at home to whom  he was as they said the life and soul.  Well we wish you luck in everything  you go in for and hope to see you  home for the Christmas vacation.  The. Rev. MacKen/.ie met with a  painful accident last Monday. While  chopping a- little wood the axe came  in contact with the clothes line thereby deviating from its course smote out-  worthy pastor a terrible crack on the  cranium which would put the story of  David in the background. Nevertheless, everyone was pleased to see him  in the disguise of "Whirling Dervish"  at the glorious repast Monday last.  A gentlemen, whose name we were  asked not to mention, was in town  Monday looking into the feasibility of  putting in a small drying and evaporating plant and was inquiring very  carefully into the amount of various  fruits that could be got at a reasonable  rate. Wish someone had got the no-  lion last fall for by this time they  could have made a good turnover for  themselves and a decided profit for the  fruit growers as carloads of fruit have  gone to waste this summer.  T. C. Eades is in the vicinity soliciting signatures of enough to co-operate in hying what is supposed to be  the finest and most accurate map of  the three western provinces. If only  one thousand names can be got the  price of these maps will be $7.50 each  over the thousand signatures the price  will fall in proportion. These arc: the  conditions to which people signed their  names These conditions therefore  appear satisfactory but it seems to us  that one thousand names will be easy  enough to get. Keep youroyeopon, buy  or sign, but don't get stung. Watch  the thousand.  The Thanksgivincr supper which  was given out by the Ladies Aid on  Monday last was a decided success*.  Twice the tables were tilled before any  of the Ladies had a chance to get a  look in. Chicken, well it was a case of  now you see it and now you don't.  The chicken played out but thojothor  good stuff was much in evidence, ft  was a bus}' hour for the ladies to see  that the Keremeos bachelors got their  annual fill. The proceeds amounted  to about fifty dollars. After supper  (he   young  people had  great   fun at  he remembered, as he said, he would  not have known his own brother. He-  reports that it rained practically all  summer long but the end of August  and part-of September was splendid  weather, so was able to get a good  deal of pleasure in the end , out of his  trip.
