Statements in Newspaper which Re;

Editor Star—Sir: Under the headH
ing: "Important Mining Deal," thje
Hedley Gazette of June 13th states that
the Windfall' group of claims is situated
to the south qf_and adjoining the Sunny-
side and that if the ore shute of the Sun-
nyside extends southward at all, beyond
the workings of the Nickle Plate, Sun-
nyside and Bulldog, the Windfall group
is bound to have it, 'Knowing that it
was njot so and thinking that the editor
had njiade a mistake or was misinformed
I mailed him a post card calling Ijis attention to the fact that tfle Windfall
group is north and west of the Nickle
Plate group and as the Nickle Plate con
sists of some 16 claims and the Sunny-
side and Bulldog are the most southerly
claims of the group. Therefore, the Sun-
nyside ore shute would have fo extend
north and westerly and for a. long distance in order to be into the Windfall
group, and as the said ore shute has a
south westerly strike it is not lto be considered as probable that it would alter its
courjse ..to the'nor'th-'We'stf.;, Birt^. as-the
Gazette' editor has so far failed"t»;retract
his misleading statements and givei^'s
subscribers the facts as they are, we must
conclude thatjie, jntended therw'fo be so
stated. Every minings camp;of note has
a class of men,!.whoj having nothing of
their own, alwavs claim to be located on'
the extension of-the. other^fe!low's ore'
shute' of "lead, and it seems the Gazette
mau_has joined theirratfks. The mining
claims which would be likely to contain
the extension of the Sunn3*sidiLand Bulldog ore shute are- the Horsefly, Princeton and R9JI0, and there is hardly any
doubt but what the?, do, and it is to be
poped that deals novy pending in connec
Vjqn .with «some of these claims will be
successfully carried through.

A FALSE RUMOR.
Editor Star—Sir: I understand that a
rumor is being circulate&itf^own to the
effect that I am in favor df cheap labor,
and that at the time of the recent strike
of the road men on the repair work on
the Hedley road I took the side of the
road boss. I would be much obliged if
you would allow me this opportunity of
denying this rumor. Having been for
several years a wage earner in the mines
in Montana myself I am, and always
have been, ofthe opinion that the laboring man is entitled to all he can earn.

LIFE IN BILLABALOO.

EditturStar, 'dear sir: You wouldn't
print my last lettur. because it was so
personal, as you sed, so[ I have tried to1
keep that out in this one. I hev been hear
ten years and i hev been thinking,late]y
how much human natur in Prinston is

on the Paramatta river, 'Australia. It
was a mining pamp with two government
offishuls, the postmashter and the mining

man with shaggy eyebrows and moush-,
tach and could loblc wise at times He
kept a paynut sthand, as they call them,
and made money in good/times which he
salted down for bad times, except a little
of it which he sent away to a meejnister
in another place, so he said, although
ther was a poor sky pilot livin near him.
He sed it was all right for him to send
money out of the town for reeleegion but
it wus bad for other persons to send their

HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.
When a matter concerning the
general interests of this  province
is in tbe foreground of discussion
by the press it is a pleasure to note
the impartial attitude taken by the
higher minded writers of the two
great political parties.    The question of our   provincial rights  has
been bandied about by the political
muck-raker for the purposes of party
advantage, but we, whose  vision is
not shut in  by Grit or Tory horizon,  take  the  broad and patriotic
view that   " better terms " from the
Dominion  admits  of no partyism
and  must  be contended  for as an
absolute and independent right and
not as a political favor.   A strong
public sentiment   must be at the
back of our   parliamentary representatives to enforce the claims of
this province ; united  British Columbia  is   equivalent   to   victory,
divided, defeat and loss.
Premier McBride has shown that
he Is a loyal son of the province in
tbe struggle to obtain  a modification of the provincial  birthright at
the hands of his  brother premiers
in   conference.    It  was a duty ar.d
a privilege for Premier McBride to
put up a strenuous fight, for which
every credit  is given  him.   Some
fun has been   poked at the premier
for his pilgrimage to the  " foot of
the throne, "which he never reached,
having stopped at the Colonial office
on Downing street, but  all  will al-
iow that his  cause  and  intentions
were good    however    tactless   his
methods were.    All the business in
connection  with  tbe matter cculd
have been transacted from the offi*. e
of the agent-general   for   B.C.  in
London and the  province saved an
expensive trip of some thousands
of  dollars  for   the  premier.    The
honorable gentleman has served his
country   faithfully    and   the Star
wishes him every success in obtaining provincial  rights.   Tbe News-
Advertiser  has   some   fair-minded
comment in this connection which
is worth reproducing, as follows :
"There is one other matter in
relation to this subject that seems
to require some reference. If tbe
Provincial interests are to be served
in the most effective way, the question must be dealt with as one entirely outside of party politics. It
was so regarded in the Provincial
Legislature, in the inter-provincial
conference and in the Dominion
parliament.     To be consistent
holding that   view,  Conservatives
must refrain from charging that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier has been the cause
of the Province's failure to obtain
$3.001 what it sought.    If anyone can be
held responsible  it must be the in
ter-provincial    conference,    which
decided what the extra sum granted
to British Columbia should amount
to.    It is not difficult to understand
why the   various   Provincial Pre
miers were not willing to give more
liberal recognition  of our claims.
They had  to consider what would
be the attitude of their respective
legislatures  and electorates on the
subject.    If the matter was referred
to them at all, we do not see how
Sir Wilfrid   Laurier could refuse to
abide by    their   decision.     From
what passed in  the Dominion parliament we must assume that Mr.
Borden would  have acted as Sir
Wilfrid  had done, had he bsen in
power.    It cannot  be wise, therefore,   if we   hope   to succeed ultimately in our claim, to attack Sir

Weak Kidnevsiwoneg wanted!
Weak Kidneys, surelr rtnint. «« «™-.*>
Weak Kidneys, surely point to weak kidney
Nerres. The Kidneys, like the.Heart, and the
Stomach, find their weakness, not in the organ
Itself, but in tbe nerves that control and guide
and strengthen them. Dr. Shoop's Restorative is
a medicine specifically prepared to reach these
controlling nerves. To doctor the Kidneys alone,
is futile. It is a waste of time, and of money as
well.
If your back aches or is weak
_ . »»v,a uunes or is weak. If tbe urine
Scalds, or is dark and strong, if you have symptoms
of Brights or other distressing or dangerous kid-
 ._•.«.   uu   ney disease, try Dr. Shoop's Restorative a month—
Tablets or Liquid—and see what it can and will
Wilfrid Lanner and throw the mat-   doforyou.  Druggist recommend and sell
ter into the arena of party politics.
Nor, although we are opposed to
h m, do we think such a course is
fair to Sir Wilfrid Laurier."
Contrast the unbiassed sentences
above with the purely partizan utterances ot that politically degenerate    newspaper,   the    Province,
which are as follows : "The whole
progress of this dispute has unmistakably  established   one  fact—tbe
resolution of Sir Wilfrid Laurier to
refuse justice to British Columbia.
That has been most plain throughout.     Whether   he   will continue
fixed in tbe determination which so
far has animated him remains to be
seen."
Let tne mail you free, to prove merit,
samples of my Dr.  Shoop's Restorative,
and my book   on   either  dyspepsia, the
heart, or the kidneys.   Address me, Dr.
Shoop, Racine, Wis.   Troubles  of the
stomach, heart or kidneys, are   merely
symptoms of a   deeper  ailment.    Dont
make the common error of treating symptoms only.   Symptom treatment is treating the result of your ailment and   not
the cause.     Weak stomach  nerves—the
iuside nerves—means stomach weakness,
always.   And the heart and kidneys as
well, have   their  controlling   or   inside
nerves.   Weaken these nerves and you
inevitably have weak vital organs.   Here
is where  Dr.   Shoop's   Restorative   has
made its fame.   No  other   remedy ever
claims to treat the "inside nerves."   Also
for bloating, biliousness, bad breath   or
complexion, use Dr. Shoop's Restorative.

the postmaster prosperd which brought
ou a terrible complaint called 'big head'
and made him act nashty toward some of
the poor people who asked for a lettur cr
wantid to register one. He wanted to te
even with another postmaster so he was
elevated to notary pub. as they calls it.
When I left Billybaloo he was marchant.
postmashter, insurance agint, newspaper
agint, express agint, rent agint, excise
agint, drug agint, bread agint, &c, and
said he would not strongly objec to or
refus to be telafun agint or customs agint
if the goverment would give it to him.
Besides all that and the notary bizness
he had an inkum from four houses and
three ranches in Tobah, as stated by
'sponsible party. Well, the druggists
and other merchants of Billabaloo and
the citizuns generally, miners, prospec-
turs, farmer chaps, the Reform organiza-
shun to a man, for many reasons, decided
to have the p.o separate from asthoie
and give it to a needy, courteous deserving mau. You orter seen that posht-
master kick and squeal when he was
notified of a change and how the bristles
stood out on him. It lookt as if he
wantid all the jobs goin and koral all the
bizniss to. He seemed to forget that the
farmer who grows iggs and chickens, the
baker who bakes, the druggist who sells
sodium fosforibusticate and other poor
peple want to mak livin to. There was a
great hullabaloo over the change and
one or two of the 'shining lights' in the
tory ranks had to poke their noses into
the grit squabble which made the Reform association all the more determined
to have a raydicul change. This lettur is
growing long so i will end by asking
yure kind permishun to write a little
some futur time about this mattur with
some karacter skits thrown in the full-
