HEDLEY HAPPENINGS.
A Budget of News From the
Growing Gold Camp.
Like other portions of West Yale, Hedley City has been suffering from a plethora of politicians during the past week
or ten days.
A meeting was held by Prov. Sec'y
Mclnnes and Dr. Sanson, the government candidate for this riding, on the
20th inst., at which the electors were exhorted to sustain the present administration and assure the country of politica
repose for a year or so.
Mr. Mclnnes made an amusing break
in explaining how Hedley City was no;
allowed a polling booth. He stated that
neither the government nor Denis Murphy, the former member for this riding,
were aware that such an important place
as Hedley existed iu the Similkameen.
Later on in his address he told his au
dience of the plans discussed by member*
of the government in Victoria for build
ing a dyke, and proceeding with other
beneficial public works at Hedley, if sus
tained in the bye election in this constit
THE b
[, AT HEDLEY.
On the evening of the 20th, a grand,
ball was given by the citizens of Hedley
in the City Hall, which passed off very
enjoyably and without a hitch.
The program was danced through, together with numerous extras, and the
dancers left for their homes well pleasec
with the evening's amusement.
Princeton musicians furnished the
music, kindly assisted by M. Barcelo of
Keremeos.   The   floor was   in   firstclass
At 12 p. m. supper was  served in
Grand   Union   Hotel, when all sat down
to an admirably arranged table.
Following are the names of the ladies
who attended:
Mesdames Aldous, Gibson and Gulli
ford, Princeton ; Miss McLean and Miss
Myrtle McLean, Ashnola ; Mrs. J. Brom
ley and Miss Bromley, Ten Mile Creek ;
Mrs. John Niel and Mrs. Scott, Sterling
Creek; Mrs. Bradshaw, Fifteen Mile
Creek ; Mesdames Richter, Daly, Kirby,
Bromley, and the Misses Armstrong anc I
Sumner, Keremeos; Mesdames Warren,
Clarke, Johnson, Allison, Frembd and
Miss Clarke, Hedley City.
Work is proceeding on Dr. J. A. Roll'
drug store, and a warehouse is being
built for L- W. Shatford just behind his
large store, which was recently complet

The Nickel Plate Company intend tc
start work' soon on their stamp mill,

SIMILHAMEENHAS SPOKEN
In Favor of Honest Government—Prior Candidate Buried Under Shower of
Clean   Ballots*
At the close of the poll here 011 Thursday the 26th, the ballots were
counted with the following result:—
Semlin  44
Sanson   13
Spoiled ". -..-.-r.     1
58
Majority for Semlin, 31.
This ends one of the most interesting campaigns ever fought in the
Similkameen ; a campaign of falsehood, bribery and free whiskey on the
part of the government who poured in money without stint, with which
to corrupt the electorate.
Political heelers were picked up on the outside, who were more
less acquainted with the electors of the district, and these specimens of
depraved humanity were instructed to influence in every possible way
the voters with whom they came in contact.
It is estimated that for each vote polled for the government candi
date there was an outlay in various ways of from $50 to $100.
On the other hand the local opposition workers were short of funds
to defray the most necessary expenses, and were compelled to use their
own money in getting around through this part of the constituency.
They relied for support entirely on the justice of their cause, anc
the result of the poll was a great vindication of their faith in the electorate
The vote was a very full one, considering only the voters on the list
who are at present residing in the district. The highest possible voting
strength was 64.    Within six votes of this number were polled.
ployed, and the structure rushed to corn-
Fred M. Wells, manager of the Kingston mine, returned on the 24th inst.
from a trip to Vancouver, Seattle, and
other coast cities, and expects to start up
work on the Kingston in a short time.
This property has shown up in promising manner under development, the lead
where opened at one point being fully
40 feet wide. A ten foot chute of arsenical iron ore on the foot-wall gives an average assay of $30 in gold per ton. On
his way in Mr. Wells met the president
of the Olalla Company and a number of
the directors who are visiting their properties at that place. They were accompanied by Horace F. Brown, a San Fran-,
cisco mining engineer, on whose report
it will depend whether or not a smelter
is commenced this year by the company,
for the treatment of their ores.
Mrs. Chas. Richter, who has been seriously ill, is recovering somewhat.
The closing political meeting of the
campaign was held here on the evening
of the 24th, in the   Grand Union Hotel
when Judge Murphy of Granite Creek,
delivered an eloquent and forcible ad
dress in the interests of the opposition
candidate. ! Dr. J. A. Rolls made a mosl
acceptable chairman.
W. A. McLean brought up a load of
Hedley voters on Thursday.
A. McKenzie brought to town a few
days ago the skin of a very large anc
beautiful white swan he killed near his

Brief News Notes of Princeton
and   Vicinity.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Hardwick returned
Thursday from Hedley, where they have
resided during the past few months.
The Ashnola Smelter Co. is reported to
have   purchased   the   Rock Creek Coal
measures and   Midway-Vernon   railway    '
charter, owned by Robert Wood & Co.
The Dominion   government is calling
for tenders  for a mail   service  between   y>
this place   and   Penticton.   The service   ^s
will be a weekly one, to commence early
in May, and will bring Princeton within
two days of Penticton.
A. Bell acted as scrutineer for Dr. Sanson, and Judge Murphy for Semlin.
W. J. Waterman and J. C. Mcintosh
came in early in the week from the coast
to work in Dr. Sanson's interests.
C. E. Thomas, deputy returning officer,
sent the ballot box   on its journey from   \j£
this place to Ashcroft Thursday night by     '
Robert Clark.
PROPER METHOD OF SAMPLING.
The average specimen of rock as
brought in by the prospector to be assayed, seldom fairly represents the actual
value of the ore found. This fools both
himself and the prospective purchaser.
The main reason for this is that the sample is too small, and even this is often reduced by the assayer not bucking down
the whole sample, but quartering it in
too large pieces. To get a proper sample
the miner should get 50 lbs. or more of
ore right across the vein or ledge ; break
this with a hammer into pieces one inch -
square on an iron plate, quarter with a -
shovel, taking two opposite quarters and
reduce these with the hammer again to
}4 inch, quartering these and taking opposite quarters until he has about 5 lbs. -
to take to the assayer, who should reduce
this to X in the crusher, quarter and
grind on the bucking board to 10 mesh, -
quarter and reduce to 60 mesh, until yz
is left to sample for the crucible.
A CONVENIENCE.
A checking account with a bank is a
great convenience, not only to business
men, but to others as well. More people
would keep such accounts if they knew
just how to go about it. We gladly aSsist
those who need help in getting started.

SEMLIN'S ELECTION.
While the Star, at the time of
going to press has not received the
returns from any other polling place
than Princeton, it may be fairly assumed that the vote here represents
approximately the sentiment of the
electors throughout the riding, and
if such be the case the election of
Semlin by an overwhelming majority is almost a certainty,
While here, Provincial Secretary
Mclnnes claimed a government majority of five in the legislature, but
little attention was paid to either
his claims or his promises, and the
way in which the campaign was
conducted in this riding showed
that the case for the administration
was desperate, unless West Yale
could be carried.
Semlin's election will have a tendency to swing a number of the
" doubtful " n embers of the legislature over to the opposition benches, and the government's defeat will
mean an appeal to the country on
the basis of the redistribution act
as passed last session.
STRIKE OF COAL MINERS.
Another most unfortunate strike
has occurred at the coal mines of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., at
Fernie, Michel and Morrisey in
East Kootenay, and as a result the
Trail, Northport and Boundary
smelters are compelled to close
down. Coming as it does at a time
when copper is on the rise, and
mining generally throughout B. C.
beginning to wear a brighter aspect,   the   strike   will    effectually
check the progress of the industry
and compel another period of stagnation.
The striking miners claim they
have been working for some time
under a temporary agreement that
was not at all satisfactory, and it
would appear that the present; strike
is for the purpose of compelling the
coal company to make terms more
acceptable to the workers. The
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co seems
to have a most unhappy faculty of
quarrelling with its men.
Whichever side is in the right in
this instance, it is difficult to tell
without a greater knowledge of the
points in dispute.
One thing is evident, coal and
coke stand in the same relation to
the metal mining industry that the
heart does to the human body, and
when the mining of coal ceases,
dustries dependent on it naturally
die.
Under the conditions now prevailing, the people of this Province
can readily see the immense advant
age it will be to have a line of rail
way penetrating this district and
making its coal accessible to the
smelters of the Boundary and Rossland.

Mining   Not a Gamble.
Det the men who look upon mining as a "gamble" get on the
right basis, get to work in the right
way and they will find success oft-
ener than it is found in any other
line of business, and success a hundred times greater as to results.

For Rising, Not  Passing
A teacher in a New York publi
school discovered that some of ber
pupils were deficient in the little
amenities of polite life, and took it
upon herself to instruct them in the
graces of courtesy.
She observed that whenever one
of the boys passed in front of the
visitors at the school, a strange,
puzzled expression came into their
faces.
The, secret came out a few days
later, when, happening to stand
near the visitors, she heard this
boy jerk out, as he shambled awkwardly by:  "Baking-powder."
She hastened to explain that the
difference between " Beg your pardon," which she had told him to
say, and "Baking-powder," which
he had understood her to say, was
wide enough to justify further instructions.
Tangled.
Few things are more joyous to an
audience than the mixed metaphors
of an orator. The Irish race is famous for its contributions to merriment in. this particular. The "Academy" gives three   illustrations :

Mayor of Dublin, " standing on the
edge of a precipice that will be a

Threw Away the Poison.
Sir Wilfrid Lawson, the great
temperance advocate, says that he
never received a knockdown blow
till, espying a laborer walking
along with the old familiar black
bottle protruding from his pocket,
he entered into conversation with
him, and pointed out the misery
which had resulted from the bottle,
and earnestly exhorted the man to
flee from its contents.
"Empty the cursed stuff away,"
said Sir Wilfrid vehemently.
" Drink something better than that
poison."
The man was so overcome that
he took out the receptacle and emptied the liquid into th » road.
Sir Wilfrid's face beamed with
pleasure, and, handing the man a
shilling, he said :—"Take that, my
good fellow ; it will buy you something better."
The man, to the intense disgust
of Sir Wilfrid, immediately entered
a public house and spent the shilling in beer. On coming out Sir
Wilfrid accosted the laborer and
asked him why he had spent the
money for beer.
" Faith, your honor, 'twas that I
thought you wanted me to drink,
for the bottle of poison I was after
throwin' away was cold tay ! "

Judge Wayback, as he stood up,

"But," exclaimed the lawyer for
the defendant, jumping to his feet,
'' there are extenuating circumstances."
"They is?" cried the judge in
alarm. "Ef I thought thet, durn-
j ed ef I wouldn't giv' 'im fifteen

ENLARGE SMELTER.
Getting Ready for Additions to the
Big Reduction Works Here.
The Granby management ii
ready getting ready for the work of
enlarging its smelter plant during
the coming year, and supplies are
now arriving for the erection of the
two additional furnaces which are
to be installed this spring. These
two, with the four now working
will by the middle of the summer
be treating 2,200 tons each day.
There will also be a big addition
made to the present electrical plant.
The company can generate about
1,200 horsepower at its own power
house, and is using about 500
horsepower through the temporary
transformers from the Cascade Power Co. When the regular transformers are installed, and they are
long overdue from the east, this
latter amount will be greatly increased, to figures which will meet
all requirements of the enlarged
plant, both in the blast and convert
er departments. The converters
are now producing about 1,000 ton:
of blister copper, which amoun
will be increased to 1,500 tons
monthly with six furnaces in operation.—Grand Forks Sun.
There is Only One Way.
Samuel M. Jones, a Welchman
by birth, who is now mayor of Toledo, Ohio, says : " It has often
been said that we learn the lessons
of life only through experience.
We get the theories from our parents, our teachers, the books, the
schools, the colleges and the uni
versities ; but the real educatior
that makes us free souls can come
only from the school of experience.
From five years of study in that
school as mayor of Toledo, I have
gained many valuable lessons. I
have learned that there is no ' hurry up,' ' 'cross lots " way to reform
and no quick acting specific that
will give us good government—to
use a term that is often employed
without a full appreciation of its
meaning. I have learned that
there is no mere trick of politics
and no improved method of bookkeeping that will produce tt e results that all thinking people desire. To boil the whole proposition down for those who will not
take time to read my whole story
to the end, let me say that I am unalterably committed to the belief|
that the way to get good govern
ment is by the slow process ofl
building up a nation of good peo
Pie."        	
The worship of wealth is an evidence of demoralization and disintegration in any nation.
