Missing Prospector's
Body Located
The body, of Theodore Witte was
found on Sunday by Ralph Eveleth a
short distance above the dam close to
the Tippie ranch, Midway.
Mr. Witte went prospecting on June
20th and when crossing a tree over
Boundary Creel�� he lost his balance
and. fell into the then raging stream.
About the same time that his body
was located, Jim and Dick' Pasco,
searchers, found the prospecting pick
that Mr. Witte carried, near the log in
the water three-quarters of. the way
across the stream.
Since his disappearance many people have looked for the body, and it
was only on Saturday afternoon that
L. Bryant and V. Barrett had cleared
out a log jam just above where the
remains were located.
The late Mr. Witte -was about 80
years of age. He was a native of Germany and was a corporal in the
Germany army when they defeated
Austria along about 1866. He had
been a resident of British Columbia for
nearly 50 years and at one time lived
in Chilliwack. For some ��� years he
made his home in Deadwood, where
he owned some mining properties.
He was a good citizen and a large
circle of friends mourn his demise.
The' funeral was held on Tuesday
under the auspices of the I. O. O. P.
Lodge, of which he has been a member for 32 years. Services were conducted by Rev. A. Walker, T. A. Love,
and G. B. Taylor, members of this fraternity. Interment took place in the
local cemetery.
. The pallbearers were: Messrs. W.
B. Fleming, W. S. McPherson, F. R.
Scott, T. Wilkinson, A. P. Crowe and

Martin Auction Kettle Valley
The above auction held last Saturday went with a-swing. There was a
large attendance, which was surprising as most ranchers had their hay
out. There were about forty cars
drawn up outside G. B. Gane's store.
Horses sold well, the highest price was
for a grey horse which brought $86.00,
machinery brought fair prices, everything was disposed of. The auction
realized $170.00 more than: was estimated. All sales were cash except one
sniall three month's note. Several buyers expressed their approval of these
auctions as they were able to purchase
articles that theyJ required at a reasonable price.
There are two more auctions to be
held, particulars of which will be given at a later date.

Death of Fred Madge
The death occurred at the home of
J. C. Madge, Rock Creek, of-Frederic
Madge, on Tuesday, July 19th. Mr.
Madge had been ill for many months
but was up and" about a short time
before his death. He was but 40
years of age, having lived 30 years in
the District, coming as a lad of ten
years, from Sprague, Wash., where he
was born. Living in the District so
long Fred had made many friends and
he was a noted horseman around
about having .made his name as a
fearless - Bronco-Euster- in - the ,-early-
days when horses were in great-.demand.
The funeral was held in Rock Creek
this afternoon.
He leaves to mourn his loss his

In Grand Forks last week Mrs. Polie
garden noticed a snake close to her
hand. She turned the hose on him.
The reptile coiled and prepared to hold
the ground! The plucky woman grabbed a hoe and put him out of business.
It turned out to be a rattlesnake with
a good bunch of buttons.
A real musical treat is in store for
the public at the Picture Show on Saturday. Nellie Wren of San Francisco,
who sings with the National Broadcasting Co. and George Clark recently
with the Mark Hopkins Orchestra of
San Francisco, have very kindly consented to render a few-numbers. Some
local musicians will assist with the

do not often have an opportunity of
listening to such talented artists. Do
not fail to hear them. ,

In view of the complimentary remarks
aboufc this District as a place to spend

year the0 Kamloops trout placed there
by the Government will provide some
real sport for the anglers.

Forestry Association
Show Well Received
The Lecture and Picture Show held
on Wednesday evening in the Greenwood Theatre was greatly appreciated
by a well filled house.
Major Ian Anderson in his discourse,
gave a brief but very interesting
lecture on the Canadian Forestry
Association as a whole and some outstanding features of the pictures which
were shown.
Mr. Charles Wilkinson, the operator,
then proceeded to show some of the
most interesting pictures ever shown
locally. They were practically all B.C.
views and showed only too plainly.
what a beautiful Province we live in
and particularly brought out the importance of saving or protecting our
precious forests. One also received a
good glimpse of the various industries
of the Province, namely furniture
manufacturing, glove making, fishing
and lumbering. A number of slides
were shown of the Vancouver Exhibition which takes place on August 10th
to ,20th
At the close of the Show Rev. A.
Walker acting as, chairman for the
occasion, expressed in a few well
chosen words how greatly he had enjoyed the evening and asked the audience to make a motion for a vote of
thanks to be tendered both Major
Anderson and Mr. Wilkinson. Mr.
Chas. King responded and made a
motion' which Mr. S. B. Hamilton-
seconded and the audience showed
their appreciation by a hearty applause.
Major Anderson thanked the audience for their attention and appreciation and then called on Mrs. A. Walker
to play the National Anthem.
Everyone went away feeling rather
proud of being a British Columbian.

In rounding out the celebration of the Diamond Jubiloo of Con'odora-*'
'tion;-'the Dominion Parliament at its next session might well lake one more-
step to further promote a united Canadian sentiment and. develop a. stronger
Canadian national spirit by..making legislative provision for the recognition
of the Canadian race, and-to enact that a person born in Canada,, whatever
their racial dofieeul, shall be designed Iu ' thc census returns of this
Dominion as a "Canadian."
AL Lhc present time, tons of thousands of native-born Canadians; are
made Lo suffer a feeling of inferiority, not only in their own eyes but before
tho world, througli their inability to record themselves as Canadians. Under
tho census regulations of the* past they havo been forced to designate
themselves as English, Irish, Scotch, French, Dutch, G-erriian, American, ���-
anything bul what tliey really aro,  Canadians.
. As a result, the census statistics of this Dominion advertise to the
world lhal this country of Canada is inhabited by all manner of races and
conditions of people, except Canadians. That in all this broad Dominion,
a self-governing nation in tlie British Commonwealth of Nations', with.'a.
statu.-; equal to' that of Great Britain itself, and a full-Hedged member of the
League of Nations, there is no such parson as a Canadian.
If iu England the same * antiquated and obsolete system .'of-census*
enumeration prevailed, many families who have lived In England i'or.
centuries would be compelled to'classify themselves as'Dutch, or French,
anything but English. His Gracious Majesty the King, the Prince o'f Wales,
nnd otlier members of the Royal Family would-������be. recorded a's German. In
lho United States, if our absurd system, existed,* there.'would.bo every known
race under the nun, except Americans. It is the un-understandable:
Insistence of Ihc Ottawa authorities in* this matter which is .one of the
.-crimes of people in other lands fallirrg to understand and appreciate tlie
national and international position of Canada today.
Furthermore, the existing state of things is most unfair to the people
of Canada. There are thousands o'f Canadians whose'patents,''grandparents;
great-grandparents, were born in Canada, and who do hot. know, and much
less care, whether generations back their forebears originally'hailed from
the nrltbli Isles, the continent of Europe, or lho isles of the seas. Thej-' are
Canadians. That is'good ��� enough for them, and It ought .to. be ���-.���good-enough
for the Canadian Government. [������"[[[[. X
In some eases a man's great-grandfather may have.been Scotch and
his great-grandmother French; 'their son -may have-married a German; the
female offspring of this latter union hay have, married "a Ukrainian horn in
Canada but ono of whoso parents was a Hungarian, -who in turn had Russian
blood. Whal is the nationality of such a Canadian-horn man? ' He,himself:
-.does not know, and it is doubtful If the average census -enumerator; can
figure h out. .The only point on'which tho enumerator ' .is /clear/'7and
because the. Government hi its-instructions* to him makes it absolutely clear,
is the man i" not a Canadian regardless of the number of these generations
of varying racial descent who were bo'nt In Canada.
"Canada onr Country" was the motto, of tho Diamond Jubilee celebrations. "Our people Canadians" should be tho record disclosed by the
census returns, not a conglomerate mixture of peoples. Under the existing
system of enumeration It is not at ."all surprising .that so many false statements are being made to the' effect that Canada is rapidly becoming a non-
English country, aud that the foreign-born predominate.: If the'children of
three ancl four generations o'f native-tan Canadians .must still be classified
ar. Russian, or German,' or ���'���Austrian, anything and everything but Canadian,
it is small wonder that -people * who do not understand our'uniquely absurd
. system are misled and arrive at conclusions the very reverse of true.
Canada';; Diamond'jubilee year is a. most, appropriate limp.' for'Parliament to right this injustice to so many of its citizen's and to the Dominion
us a whole.-

Fined For Laughing
Display of Mirth Leads to Trouble 1"
German Town
At Scttin. in Germany, laughter is
liable to lead to trouble.
A German couplo, llerr and Frau-
Staur.er, stopped out of a shop while
the latter told her husband a funny
story. Tho husband burst into a
hcaity guffaw, whereupon a policeman rushed to the scene.' charged
ihe husband with disturbing the
peace, ond lined hiin a dollar on the
This affront so amused Herr Stan-
7,er lhat he again burst out laughing.
Before the flual chuckle had. ended
he was being led away to tho police
court. A witness testified that ho
had not laughed but had -"bleated
like a sheep,"
This remark so tickled tho laughing husband that ho could not keep
solemn no longer ��� and enjoyed another iicurty laugh. Ho ..was fined
about ?2.d0. Still with a smile on his
face.. Stanzer handed tho clerk
? 10.00, telling the official to credit
him with ?5.00 on his next laughs.
"Contempt of court," said the Bench,'-
and find him $12.50.

The appointment is the outcome of
a scouting trip that Mr. Jackson mado

conditions of the wheat .trade in that
country. It has since been decided

An Exceptional Opportunity for Farmers of Western Canada to
Vir-it tho Old Land
The British market must ever remain the most desirable outlat . for
Canadian farm products. As a result
of keen competition from other countries, it ls vital that tho Canadian
farm'er should become familiar with
what this market desires. As very few
agriculturally trained observers from
this country havo had this privilago,
many wo'uld welcomo tho opportunity
of making an intimate study of marketing conditions at first hand. There
hasi therefore been organized a
"Farmers' Marketing Tour" by the Department of Agriculture of tho Canadian National Railways. 'This tour,
which will be open to any Canadian
farmer, will be of somo seven weeks
duration, leaving Halifax January S,
next, with a full month spent in the
old land, during which important,
marketing centres in England and
Scotland, and some of "tho farms
whero famous breeds of __ livestock
havc been developed, will be# visited,
with a side trip to Denmark for a
study of co-operative marketing in
land of its birth.
Thc tour originated by Dr. W. J.
Black, director of colonization, agriculture and natural resources, on the
Canadian National Railways is being
planned to provide the maximum of
educational value, combined with all
the pleasures of tho ordinary sightseeing lour. The study of conditions
abroad by a large group"of observers
from the.farms in Canadasho'uld have
Us practical results In the successful
application of thp knowledge-gained
on such a tour to the general im-'
provement of thc agricultural -industry in Canada. ,
The tour is essentially for tlio Canadian farmer, Any farmer anywhere
in Canada, or anyone vitally interested in agriculture and marketing problems, and In the development of wider
markets for Canadian products, may
join the tour, and it will also bo possible for women who are. interested
In any phase o�� agriculture to go.  ,
The cost of tho tour from the time
of leaving Halifax, .Canada, until the
return to that port "will be $500.01..
This cost includes all ocean-fares and
meals, railway and bus fares in the
old laud, accommodation at.,good medium-class hotels, meals and ordinary

Proposed Coast-Kootenay
Telephone Line
The opening for commercial ��� use of
a long distance telephone service between Penticton and Vancouver foreshadows future development of an
important character in this district.
It is currently reported that the B.C.
Telephone Company, which now operates at the Coast and in the Kootenays, is anxious to extend its lines so
as to give, in the near future, a B.C.
service between Vancouver and Nelson and eventually form a link to Calgary in an all-Canadian phone route
across the continent.
The existing commercial,service between Vancouver and Penticton is carried on the B.C. Telephone Company's
copper circuit to Kamloops. These
wires are on the C.P.R. poles. Prom
Kamloops the government iron circuit
is used to Vernon, and from Vernon to
Penticton the copper circuit of the
Okanagan Telephone Company is
utilized. .
From the Kootenays the B.C. Telephone Company has extended its lines
west as far as Bridesville.   The under-
. standing in telephones circles is that,
' in order to link up the Kootenays and
the   Coast,   B.C.   Telephone   interests
may put up a new line of copper wire
from Hope: eastwards along the Kettle
Valley   Railway   poles   to   Princeton,
thence   down   the   Similkameen   and
through   the   Okanagan   at   Fairview
���and Oliver up to.Camp McKinney and
Bridesville... Presumably  poles of  the
West Kootenay Power Company would
be  used  in' the  Okanagan.   Another
suggested   route   is   to   continue   the
present   line   of   the   company   from
Kamloops  to  Vernon  either  on   the
C.N.R. poles' through Grande Prairie
or along the C.P.R. to Salmon Arm
and over the hill to Enderby, thence
down to Vernon on C.P.R. poles. Prom
Penticton south the new government
circuit to Oliver would *be utilized, with
construction from there to Bridesville.
While these proposals will not come
into effect at once, it is generally accepted as a fact that the B.C. Telephone Company will create a through
trunk line from'the Coast to the Kootenays and eastward just as quickly as
possible.    The   Okanagan   Telephone
Company's modern equipment  would
be utilized for the Okanagan section
 in the .event oWa, through line coming east via KaniloopsTTathei-Avise^the
Okanagan    and    Kamloops    district
would feed into the through line.  At
all events the creation of this exoss-
B.C. system will mean a considerable
improvement   in   telephone   facilities
between all points of the southern interior and the Coast cities.���Penticton
