In the past we have  labored with many  handicaps and we'  have so far  been enormously successful.     That we   will  as a government  continue to measure   up to general expectations is   my firm hope, in  view of  the magnificent attitude of the people  as shown  at the polls.     From now on  British Columbia, will forge ahead as  she has never done  before.     Faith in  the country's   potentialities  has been  splendidly  vindicated tonight',    With  that great  warrant  to  back  us,   the  government of the province hopes to  inspire the same confidence  in the investing world  that the people the.ni-  selves have so plainly ^exhibited."

Copper Co. established a  new record lor themselves in the output of copper produced in March.  The constant improvement in the  price of copper has led owners of copper properties to look for 16c copper in  the near future.  . ,The Kingston continues to show up  well under development. , There has  also been some satisfactory results obtained from work done up on the  Warhorse, another claim of the group.  The diamond drill work being done,  on the Nickel Plate this year is ex-  eediug that of any previous year.  There has also been a. marked lowering of the cost per foot in the work  now being done.  Had it not been for .the accident to  the generator last week there would  have been a new record to hang up for  March as the tonnage for the month  up to that date was considerably to  the good over the same number of  days in each of the preceding months.  While the generator was undergoing  repairs at the hands of the electrician  the. greatest number, of stamps that  could be kept dropping out of the  forty was fifteen. As it is , when the  total extraction for the month is determined it may yet be possible that  former records have been reached.  SKEENA  Win. Manson, Cons., elected  Aid. W. II.

Coming out at this time  when fi uit giowois and those who intend setting out tieesare making up  their ordeis for nursery stock the advice and information comes most timely-  The circular reviews conditions prevailing in 1911 in different pnrts'of the  province, discussing them under the  heads of climatic conditions of the  year, fruit pests, lahor conditions, crop  and market conditions and dealing  with them fully.  The most practical feature of the  circular, however, will be found in the  review of the. different districts and  the advice given as to the .most suitable varieties to plant for each particular district.,  Of the. Similkaineen in this connection he stays:  "This district, should produce the  necessary, vegetables and, small fruits  called for by railway construction and  an increasing market in the mining  .towns. .This is the district which British Columbia, must very largely rely  on for the production of Winesaps,  and to some extent, foi- Koine Beauty  and Yellow Newtown, while Jonathan  should also be planted largely here.  Direct railway connection with Vancouver will put this district in a very  favorable position for the production  of all kinds of early vegetables for that  market."  The varieties recommended for Penticton and the lower Okanagan are  very similar to those recommended  for Similkameen.  Another excellent circuhir is that on  the cultivation of small fruits prepared by Mr. J. F. Carpenter', assistant  horticulturist, which gives valuable  instructions on the profitable growing  of the various small fruits in which he  deals with soil selection, propagation,  planting and cultivation for each of  the leading small fruits.  While these have not been issued  for general distribution because of the  fact that they are pretty much along  the same lines as the lectures deliyer-  { ed a few weeks ago by the same men  in their tours through the province  among members of the faemers' institutes and all other who attended their  meetings, there is little doubt that  they may be obtained by writing the  Department of Agriculture and asking  to be furnished with a cepy. As a rule  the man who is sufficiently interested  to write for a copy will take care of it  when he gets it. Mr, Winslow's article is known as circular No. 11 and  that of Mr. Carpenter as circular No.  10. By all means those who are in the  fruit business largo, or small should  have these circulars, but the information given above as to the proper  varieties suited to this district will be  found of great yalue to those inter  osted.  LOOKS BAD FOR COMPANY  Coroners Jury Gives Adverse Verdict on  Merritt Disaster and Premier  is Taking Matter Up  CONSTABLE ASTON DEAD  After lingering for nine days in a  stupor from which he was only partially aroused at tunes, constable Aston  who was shot by the prisoner, James,  died in the Kelowna hospital. This  will cause his slayer to be arraigned  on the more serious charge of murder.  Aston was removed to Penticton  where he was buried hy the members  of Orion Lodge A. F. <fc A. M. with  full masonic honors, although he was  a member of Greenwood lodge. His  sister who resides in Kootenay was  with him at the time of his death.  The coroner's jury which investigated the cause of the explosition in  the Diamond Vale coalmine .-it Merritt returned the following verdict.  "Deceased men met their death'by  aii explosion caused by gas, combined  with coal dust, coming into contact  with a naked light in the Diamond  Vale mine March 7th.  "As a rider: we find that gross negligence has been manifiest on the part  of.the management, through not providing efficient equipment, and a disposition to evade the rules as specified  in the Coal Miiv.'s Regulation Act of  1911.  "We further find that there has been  laxity on the part of the inspector of  Mines, in not strictly enforcing the  provisions of the Act."  The various witnesses were, examined by the Crown solicitor, W. F.  Robertson, and J. A. Maughan, representing the company.  The theories formed by the expert  of the company, Mr. James Ash worth,  and the chief inspector of mines, Mr.  Thomas Graham, were substantially  similar, both being convinced that the  explosion originated in either No. 12  or No. 13 chutes, and that it was caused, by fire damp coming in contact  with a naked light, causing the coal  dust to become ignited. Tho expert  evidence submitted by Andrew Bry-  den, who had also examined the workings since the accident, was on the  same terms.  Premier McBride on learning the result of the coroners inquiry expressed  his intention of submitting the matter-  to-i still further investigation with a  view to ascertaining beyond doubt the  degree of culpability. A despatch concerning it says:  "Despite specially  heavy   demands  upon his time during the past 4S hours  Premier McBride  has already found  opportunity to hike cognizance of the  verdict, returned  on  Tuesday  by the  coroner's jury which has been investigating at Merritt  the circumstances  attending the  recent disaster of the  mines of the Diamond Vale Coal company near that city.     The. jury in its  finding held that the accident was occasioned by neglect of prescribed precautions on the  part of the company-  and further held  the local  inspector  blameable in his not having posted, or  seen to the posting of certain notices  which are called  for by the provisions  of the Coal Mines Regulation Act.   On  Monday  next the question   of these;  serious  charges  will   be taken   up hy  the  minister, the  department having  determined   upon the most searching  investigation of the disaster,  with a  view  to ascertaining if responsibility  therefor is chargeable, to  neglect or  non-compliance with any of the provisions of the law, and if so upon whom  blame rests.    It is expected that Chief  Inspector Graham, who was despatched to  Merritt immediately  after  the  accident,   will be  back the fiist of the  week to report personally and directly  to the minister."  GENERAL NEWS  NEW RECORD HUNG UP  SUBSCRIBE FOR  THE   GAZETTE  Again the mill crew of the Hedley  Gold Mining Go's foity stamp mill has  made a new record in spite of the fact  that in one day out of the 31 days .of  March things were badly demoralized  owing to the mishap to the big generator which put it out of commission  for over 24 hours and the greater part  of that time only .15 stamps were dropping. The number of tons milled and  treated reached the handsome figure  of 0203 tons while the greatest in any  previous month was that of 5514 tons  in December, 1911.  The coal strike is sproadinp-. In the  United States 400,000 men have gone  out.  The Dominion parliainentprorogued,  at the end of the week and Premier  Borden goes south for a brief holiday.  The I Wont Work's have kicked up  a disturbance among laborers on construction on the C. N. R. and between  Hope and Kamloops 4000 have gone  out on strike for shorter hours. They  were working ten hours and demand  eight.  The British coal strike has already  caused several deaths by starvation in  England.  The Grand Trunk Pacific has commenced to work night shifts on construction on the section between railhead and Tete Jaime Cache.  In the woods north of Port Arthur*  Out., the wolves me eating each other.  There has been only a few inches of  snow and tho deer are able to keep  away from the wolves with the result  that the latter are starving.  ijgjJB THE HEDLEY GAZETTE APRIL 4, 1912.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  Ex-mayor Taylor, tlu- Vancouver  aspirant for the Rossland seat, saved  his depositby one vote. lb is now up  to him to try and find out who polled  that last vote which worked the trick  and halve np with him the. $10!) saved,  lb is not expected"- that Mr. Taylor  will ask for a rec dub.  It would look  as if the lesson of the  lecent   lire   is   to   pass   unheeded   as  before,   for apparently no move,  is to  be  made in   the  matter   ol:  securing  some system of lire protection.   About  1000 feet of hose  and a   few   hytlr-mts  or lire plugs   are needed   which  could  be   purchased   at   a  cost    that  would  scarcely be. felt   by anyone   if  all   will  contribute.      The condition   of affairs  didn't look good   to the adjuster who  was in here last week   and in   all   probability   the report  he 'will   make  to  the  companies    he   was   representing  will not bo very much   in the interests  of those who have   property   to insure  and look to get it covered  as  cheaply  as possible. .

IIiii. Martin Burrell  is making   tlie  department,  of agriculture   one of the  slrongi'st in   the  Borden   government  and it is quite fitting that it should be  so    for agriculture   is one of the  most  important   industries   of the   country.  While fruit-growing is the branch of  , agriculture   in   which   lie   has   always  been engaged   and  his choice   as head  of the department   was   acclaimed   by  friiit-gi owers all   over  the   Dominion,  he has already given evidence that   no j negative   now  part   of the broad   field   of agriculture  will be left uncared for. His Agricultural Aid Bill under which over a million dollars will be distributed annually among  the different provinces  to  be used for the advancement of agriculture and the spread of agricultural  knowledge is being well received  everywhere, and what he found of  value in the department when he  took hold is being retained and improved where necessary. Stock-raisers have found him as ready to cooperate with thorn as with the fruitgrowers and horse-breeders are very  pleased to find that the movement  begun under the late government to  improve the class of light and carriage horses is being  continued as will  Town and District.  There has been an epidemic of colds  at the  mine within the past ten days.  Local anglers have been trying their  luck but no big strings have yet been  reported.  , Tomorrow will be Good Friday aiid  if the day be favorable the golfers will  take advantages of it for a few rounds  of the links.  Gardening is in progress-in different  parts of the town and vegetation has  made marked .progress during the  past ten days.  Tom Marks is coming to Hedley on  April 25th and 26th with a company  of a dozen or more talented artists in  comedies, dramas and vaudeville acts.  Even the moon appears to have been  effected' with the sweeping character  of the B. C. government's indorsation  by the electors for it will get full twice  in the month following the event;  j Coahnont is to have a newspaper  shortly which will be edited by Ed.  N. Clark. The plant which will be  used is a spare plant procured from  Col. Lowery, of the Greenwood Ledge.  Henry Lye, of Vancouver, adjuster  for various insurance companies, paid  Hedley a visit last week in connection  with the recent lire when claim papers  for the  various losses were  made out.  The Hedley,.-Union Sunday School  will give their annual Easter entertain 11iont in Frii torn ity Hal 1. Mo nda y,  April 8th. Admission free. A collection will be. taken up. All cordially  invited.  Mas. William Sampson, received a  telegram last week informing her of  the death of her father atSa.lt Lake  city. The event was not unexpected  as his condition was most serious  when Mrs. Sampson left there about  a month ago.  Old-timers who remember the. crew  of the. steamer Penticton which plied  on Okanagan lake before the C. P. R.  launched the. Aberdeen in the summer  of 1893. will regret to learn the death  of engineer Jules McWha which occurred at- Revelstoke on March 10th.  General superintendent Jones is expecting a visit in May from President  I. L. Merrill, Vice-president W. B.  Dickson and Treasurer C. D. Eraser,  of the Hedley Gold Mining Co. The  golf club should try and have the  greens in apple pie order when thoy  come.  Vernon is mourning the sudden  death of ex-mayor Husband who was  killed -in an accident at Winnipeg  where he was taking a course of instruction with the Strathcona Horse.  His horse slipped on an icy rail and  fell with its rider and the injuries sustained caused death a few hours later.  The first, game of mixed foursomes  among members of the golf club played this year was that on Saturday  afternoon. The turnout of ladies was  not large but later on it is hoped that  more will be out. Bolls and Miss .lack  sou played .lames and Mrs. Rotherham and had the best of the play by  three holes up.  The last of the votes on the question  of church union were collected in Hedley on Sunday evening last.    The general   vote throughout   the   Dominion, j  however,   does not look   very   prepos- j  sessing  at   the   present.    In   fact   the j  thing    is    practically  decided   in   the.  for although   the vote  gave a   majority for organic   union on  the basis pi oposed   the minority is too  strong   to be   ignored, and it   is not at  all   likely   that any of  the  governing  bodies   in either of the  churches  will  take   any   steps   to   put  the   thing   in  operation   in the  face of so much  un  expected opposition.  Lack of backbone on the part of the  Board of Directors of the Vernon  Jubilee hospital has deprived that institution of an efficient stall' of nurses  who could not stand the disgraceful  conduct of a local doctor. The account  of the trouble as given in the Vernon  News would appear to bear the stamp  of accuracy and moderation and must  bring home to the Board pretty  strongly the folly of the course they  pursued in seeking to temporise in a,  case where dignity and every other  proper consideration would seem to  demand an altogether different course-  The office ax disappeared from the!  Gazette's backyard, on Or shortly after j  the night of the fire. If someone borrowed it the loan is long enough by  this time to warrant its return and if  l some kid lias carried it off home it is  pretty nearly tune the parents were  trotting him back with it.  Vancouver papers tell. of a suicide  which oecured in that city when a  man named GeO. Lawience hanged  himself. Friends in Keremeos of Geo.  S. Lawrence are apprehensive.-that it  may be he. When he left here about  a couple (if months ago, he was suffering front nervous breakdown. It is  hoped, however., that it may prove  otherwise. '���������-.���������'  Duncan Woods arrived in town on  Saturday to look after his interests in  this camp. He spent the. greater part  of the winter in Vernon and part of  the time.he. was in the hospital where  he had a serious operation performed  for kidney trouble. His friends are  pleased to see him around again looking as husky as ever. It. is hard to  kill an old timer whose constitution  has been fortified for so many years  on bacon and beans.  Peck McSvvain who is holding down  a case on the Princeton Star and getting bonbons frrun members of the  fraternity on his -proud position on the  water wagon is still sticking bravely  to the seat. Now would be a good  time for Peck to equip the old wagon  with bucking straps for it Is no more  to be trusted at certain critical times  than the ordinary cussed cayuse. A  bucking strap may not be needed but  it is handy to have around.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P. is expected in the district shortly when we.  understand he is going to follow his  customary practice, of going through  the riding from end to end and meeting with his constituents. On this  occasion the, trip .will be of an exceedingly pleasant nature to him and the  element of pleasure will transcend  that of duty, ft will be the first occasion upon which he will meet his  constituents-'-after having been done  the honor of being returned by acclamation.
