HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  The Central Hotel and Coleman's Drug  Store Destroyed.  Keremeos is having an unlucky time  of it with fire. About four months  ago Kerby.s store was bui-npil clown;  last week wo had a rel'ereneo to the  burning of P. Bromley's blacksmith  shop, but the destructive fire of last  Thursday morning by which the Central Hotel ofTweddle & Reith was  laid in ashes, was the climax,  The fire occurred at about one o'clock  in the 'morning and was noticed by  Harry Twiddle who found it coming  up through the floor of the kitchen.  He broke a window to get in and in  doing so cut his leg severely. The  lire, hod started-outside among some  lumber aiid barrels alongside the  building, and .seeing that it had got  beyond control he informed his partner, Reith, and both set to work  arousing all the inmates, some of  whorii had little enough time to get  clear. Practically nothing was saved  except the books. The loss is esti-*  mated at $7000. and insurance $2600,  Only a short time before he had put  in a stock of^liquors amounting to  $1900.  The drug, store alongside .belonging  to J. Coleman "was also burned down  but he. managed to get out all the  stock, to the last box of pills.  The general store of Frank Richter  & Co. had-a very, narrow-escape. But  for the resolute fight made by the  manager," Geo. Loudon, and a "few  assistants in mounting the roof and  keeping it saturated with water carried  from the, creek, the store would have  burned, for several times it caught fire.  Tweddle & Reith are putting up a  temporary building in which to reopen and in a few months it is their  Intention to build a. larger hotel than  before. ���������   .  The origin of the fire is believed to  be due to incendiarism.  Accident to Gravity Tram  OLIVER & GLADDEN  -:o:-  Civil & Mining Engineers  :o:-  TVYIINES eincl  REAL   ESTATE  HEDLEY. B. C.  On Monday the head gear for the  lower section of the gravity tram took  fire at Central station from friction.  The heat was so intense that it caused  the cable to part, but the down coming loaded car was on the easy grade  near the tipple at tho time and did not  gain very great momentum. A miner  by the name of O. Bergstrom was on  the car at the time but jumped before  it charged the tipple which was strong  enough to stand the on-slaught.  The repairs could be completed in a  few days in replacing the damaged  portions and re-babbitting. The cable  was spliced to do for a few days on  lighter loads until a. new cable which  has been on the way for months and  is now between here   and   Penticton,  arrives.   ^ _.    _  A 'Mosquito Theory.  James .1. Hill, the railroad king, in  three years will have another transcontinental line built.    It will stretch  across the fertile Canadian Northwest,  extending from Vancouver, B. C, to  Winnipeg.    According to a line now  under construction, lines surveyed and  projects    under    contemplation,    the  Great Nurthern in the near future will  have almost as much mileage in Canadian territory us in any of the states.  The line is now being built from Vancouver to Midway, about two hundred  and fifty miles, which is the first step  towards   the   new    transcontinental.  Another line has been surveyed from  Winnipeg to Brandon, a hundred and  thirty miles,  on -which   construction  will soon bo started.   From Winnipeg  this line will run to Fernie.   Surveying  parties are now in  the field looking  over the lay of tlie land. , The Great  Northern has a line now practically in  operation   from   Midway   to   Fernie.  Connections may be built either from  Nelson or Kuskanoolc to Fernie. Plans  in that respect have not yet been fully  developed,.but a direct line from Vancouver to Fernie is the ultimate project.   The long expected invasion by  Mr. Hill has thus begun in earnest.  He has three or four thousand men at  work and bj' summer that "number will  be doubled.  . One of the keenest railway contests  in history is about to begin among the  Great Northern, the Canadian Northern and the Grand Trunk Pacific  across the vast expanse of the Canadian Northwest. Mr. Hill intends to  make his entrance into Canada as  thorough as possible. He is building a  line from St. Johns, N.D., to Brandon,  -seventy-five miles. The border has  just been crossed, and the line is expected to be ready for operation by  August.  Work is also progressing rapidly on  a line from Neche, N.D., to Portage la  Prairie, eighty-nine miles, for which  rails are already on the way. These  lines will be used as feeders of the east  and west Canadian line, as well as for  transporting coal and timber from the  American side. The Great Northern  has also parties north of Brandon with  a. view to locating a new line. Petitions have been received from several  towns in the western part of Manitoba  Mr. Thos. Bradshaw, of Fifteen Mile���������  has been a busy man this spring, and  has something to show for beiiig busy.  He is getting his ranch in excellent  shape for making a.pot of money out  of growing farm produce. To that  end he has just completed some 1884  feet of flume from a point high up  Fifteen Mile Creek, from which it is  brought down on a very steep grade  at poiuts. In addition to the splendid  irrigation system thus'obtained, he is  arranging to put in piping which at  the height from which it will divert  water from the flume, will give him  good pressure for fire protection at his  hotel, as well as furnishing a convenient domestic supply.  He is also making additions and repairs to his hotel by adding on ii  hummer kitchen and a large sitting  room off the bar. For increased sleeping accommodation he is fitting up a  spare building across the road. Close  to his hotel on the right of way of the  V. V. & E. is much heavy work, which  will make that a busy point for the  greater part of the summer and fall.  Very fortunately for him the V. V.  ������fc B. in going through his land will do  him the minimum amount of damage;  leaving his fine rich flat, from which  he grew last year four tons of hay and  clover to the acre and tons of roots  The .

Two years ago lie.  planted out a new orchard which has  done particularly well, the trees all  looking healthy and vigorous.  Such industry and enterprise as one  sees displayed on his premises is worth  a great deal to the district. It is a  pity that the flat, referred to above  cannot be seen from the road.  The Amende Honorable  The Gazette has been assured that  the Liberals in Penticton had nothing  to do with the mob which figured in  the Chinese incident. The only authority we had for connecting them with it  was that in Hedley the greatest outcry was being made by those who  claimed to represent tlie Liberals and  that Mohr who had been made secretary of the Liberal.Association at Penticton before the affair took place, was  one of the culprits. It now appeals  that the respectable Liberals of the  town disavow any connection with  it, and the Gazette is pleased to make  the amende honorable by taking it all  back. We would not have coupled  them with it at all had we. known the  true state of affairs.  Nicola Licensing Court  for a railroad, including Birtle and  Virden, as far north as...Duck Mountain country. Plans are also under  contemplation for the construction of  a line from Emerson to Winnipeg. All  these, lines, which aggregate nearly  eighteen, hundred miles, are strictly  Great Northern projects. They have  no connection with the plans of the  Canadian Northern, for the Great  Northern projected lines enter Canadian Northern and Canadian Pacific  territory.  METEOROLOGICAL.  It is a well  known fact that there |  are no   mosquitoes   in   Hedley.    But  there may be some this summer. During the exceedingly hot days of last  week   the Gazette met three.    They  didn't look as if they were  at  home,  hence a little speculation as to then-  origin  is   apropos.     They   were not,  branded Twenty   mile,  but there is  little doubt that the larva laden water  pumped off the muddy bottom of the*  lake and discharged at various . taps  about town   needed, only   the  warm  rays of a Hedley "sun  to  blossom out  as full blown, booted and spurred voracious Twenty Mile   Lake mosquitoes.  So if you get a bite or two  this summer remember that the Gazette "told  you so,"  The following are the readings showing temperature, etc., for, the week  ending April   7th :  AT  THE MINE.

The Board of Licence Commissioners  for the Nicola Licence District met in1  Hedley on Friday last.  The whole Board, consisting of  Messrs C. E. Thomas. F..P. Cook and  A. Megraw were present, with R.  Hewatt, chief licence   inspector.  The licence of the hotel Hedley was  transferred from William J.   Henderson to  Messrs Gibbon and McDonald,  while W. C. McLean was again granted a licence for his  hotel at Ashnola,  and George McCoskery   was   granted  a  licence for a  new   building to  be  named  the Hotel Tulauieeii for which  he submitted plans, showing a   building with 32 bedrooms,   This will complete Princeton's complement of licences under the new law, and no further  can be given until there is a population of 1,500.   Hedley has now licences  enough for a place of 3,500 Dopulation,  ond no further can be granted until  the town has  4500  population unless  in the meantime some of the existing  licences may be cancelled for improper conduct,   A hotel licence in either  Hedley or Princeton has now become  a very valuable franchise and it will  pay those who hold them to take care  of them by running their houses within the law, and by seeing that ample  accomodation is provided for the public.  The Gazette sent a special artist to  illustrate the Penticton  affair and herewith will  be found all the progress he had made until  he was nabbed by the  new policeman.  The visit to Hedley last week of  J. J. Marks of the Hummingbird and  Mr. Wright, representing the Diamond  Drill Company of [Spokane, one of  whose, drills has been opei-ating on the  Hummingbird for a-' month or more,  and the iniorniation^which has leaked  out that the drill broke into a large  ore body, will be. .welcome news to all  interested in Hedley- and the camps  on''Twenty Mile. The Gazette was  unable ;t������ get hold of -Mr. Marktt him- .  self, but .has learned from various  reliable parties who did meet him, tlwit  the outlook on tin;, Hummingbird is  exceedingly bright.    .   .  Both" visitors were reticent, but at  the same time neither of them could  completely conceal a jubilant expression that in1 itself spoke much-.    -  Further it is learned thai, the admission was directly, made that the  drill had been in ore for sixty feet and  the liody was not yet cross-cut.  Too long the impression has been  abroad that Canip Hedley was a one  mine camp, but the work of this drill  on the Hummingbird will, go  to explode that notion.    When this-is the  result of the very first bore hole that  lias been put down anywhere off the  Nickel Plate, it is pretty good evidence  that this is a camp of not one mine but  of many mines.    There are few camps  in which, apart from   the  one   well  known- claim,   so  little development  work has been done cm properties by  the claim   holders   themselves.     The  Kingston Company did considerable  until they ran out of funds, and Thos.   '  Bradshaw has stuck to his guns most  nobly, while Mr. Marks and his partners,   Brodhagen   and   Murphy,   did  good work on the Golden Zone gioup.  Apart from these: the work done is not  what might be expected.  In getting the diamond drill to work  on his property Mr. Marks has clone a  fine stroke of business, not only for  himself but the Camp, and no matter  how great the result may be, it will  not be a whit more than he deserves.  From this out keep your eye on  Camp Hedley.  AN EXCELLENT SAFETY VALVE.  Beneficial Effects To  Be Derived From  the Damming of Twenty Mile Lake.  Apparently no further fears of damage from Hoods in Twenty Mile Creek  need   be   entertained,  and the  cause  which   will    produce   this   beneficial  effect is the damming of Twenty Mile  Lake, which was done in the summer  of   1904 to  provide  a  reservoir from  which to draw during the period of  low water in the winter months.   This  year, the lake has been pumped right  down   to the mud bottom, but  this  would not have, been necessary but for  the leak in the dam in July last which  resulted in the escape of nearly two  months' supply of water.   Before the  lake can regain the level of the dam  and   begin,   to   discharge   again   into  Twenty    Mile  Creek   the  period   of  flood tide m the creek will have passed.  By thus holding back the lake, water  from the creek it is doubtful whether  the creek could, at its highest point,  attain a volume equal to two-thirds of  that in former years before any dam  existed.  In this way the dam will afford protection from flood during the period  of high water.  To-morrow will be Good Friday  which is a bank holiday as is also  Easter Monday. Those who may have  business to do with the bank will do  well to keep this in view and attend to  it on Saturday, THE HEDLEY GAZETTE,   APRIL   12,    1906.

St.  Paul.   It is an interesting study  comparing the   ministerialist  speeches of three years ago with  later developments and especially  this  last.      Sir  Wilfrid's  hysterical "pray. Heaven that it  he not too lute" placed alongside Blair's calm plea for moderation will make a pair of delightful  companion   pictures    when  viewed in the light of this latest  Hill project. In three years more  when Hill's line is completed  from Vancouver to  Winnipeg,  without a dollar of cost to  the  people  of  Canada,   that high-  priced article the Grand Trunk  Pacific, will be still .a thing  of  the future.

The Gazette  is in  receipt  of  'report of the Minister  of  Railways and   Canals,  and  accompanying the report is a series of  railway maps, showing all  the  railways   in  Canada.     Among  them is one of British Columbia.  To Hedleyites it may seem  remarkable  that  while Osoyoos,  Keremeos, Princeton and Granite Creek are marked,  there is  no evidence of the existence  of  such a place as Hedley, and yet  this map is issued from the Department of Railways and Canals as recently  as -March  1906.  For this the Gazette does not  attach    any   special   blame to  Duncan  Ross M. P., the representative of Yale-Cariboo, who  is  not  one-tenth   as   much  at  fault in the matter as the people  of Hedley themselves   who  took no pains to draw his  attention to the necessity of guarding against such a possibility.  But we do charge the Minister  of Railways  and  Canals with  doing  to    Hedley   a    grievous  wrong    iir inflicting   upon the  town a serious injury of this  kind.

David James of the; Hedley restaurant was unlucky in losing about $300  worth of belongings in the Central  Hotel fire at Keremeos. What he regrets most was a number of keepsakes  and relies that cannot be replaced.  Mr. M. R. Morrison, who was all  last year in charge of development  work on the the Sunset for the B. C.  Copper Co, was in town on Sunday,  and was accompanied bv his wife and  ���������daughter. They were on their way to  the Boundary, going out by private  rig.  Mrs. Marks informs the Gazette; that  wedding presents are still coining to  hand. Among those not already mentioned are: Miss. Winnifred and Mr.  Gerald Clark, inkstand; Mr. and Mrs.  Bradshaw, half dozen silver dessert  spoons and knives; .Mr. and Mrs. R.  W, Marks, Ottawa, a heavy silver tea  service, comprising six pieces, with  the letter "M" engraved on each piece;  Mr. Jas. Murphy, a beautiful bedstead  ���������and fittings, from honest. Jim.  Harry Walton is going to hie himself off a-fishing some of these days if  he can rustle up someone who can fish  {or may think lie can fish) well enough  to angle with the Waltons, for Harry  is a g.-g.-grand nephew of old Ike himself. Just call around and inquire of  him what the qualifications are to go  -along. Some time this summer when  he does a big enough stunt to get a few-  days' fish ahead we may spare him  lo.ng enough to send him to Vernon to  go lip against Charlie Sims or some of  those guys who claim to hold the Okanagan record for rainbow trout.  In connection with forwarding of  resolutions to the representative at  Ottawa re. approval of V. V, & E.  plans, the Gazette wishes on behalf  of the town and of the Board of Trade  to express thanks to Mr. C. A. Crawford, secretary of the Daly Reduction  Co. for co-operation with the citizens  in that matter and for gratuously paying for the use of the hall for public  meeting.;  Mr. and Mrs H. A. Shatford of Hubbard's Cove N. S., father and mother  of L.W.Shatford   M.P.P.  arrived in  Hedley on Sunday   from Passnclena,  Cal., where   they  spent   the   winter.  They were brought in from Penticton  by Mr. L.  W.  Shatford and will remain here for about a. week before returning to their home in Nova Scotia.  W, J. Manery was in town on  Monday and reports work on   the railroad  in his vicinity to be proceeding as fast  as the force will  allow.    While   the  shortage of men is complained of,  the  shortage of  horses   is   even   a more  serious draw back, and those they  have ate being worked so hard ,that  they are giving out.  The restaurant in the Rolls, building,  is re-opened this week by David James  who has had many years' experience  a.s cook "in the dining-car service, but  prefeiring more solid footing on. which  to'priiutise. the culinary art has left  the road and --.���������gone into business for  himself. It is his intentioh'.to run it  strictly first class, and asks for a share  of the public patronage.    FredRevely has put into commission a fine new. covered stage for the  Hcidley-Prineoton run. The body was  painted a dark green which led some  of the boys to conclude that it was  due to arrive on St. Patrick's Day, but  hadi been delayed. They now say that  this is a cool color and will be appreciated later on when they begin to run  excursions to the brewery.  Tommy Melville the horse thief is  again in the toils. Just a year ago he  put in two or three shifts in the Nickel  Plate, after he had been released from  Conconully jail, and was going to  make the Similkameen. shudder for  the outrage practised upon him in  making hiin pay poll-tax. Last week  he escaped again from Conconully jail  where he has apparently been doing  more time, but was recaptured at the  muzzles of several guns.  On account of other attractions, the  base ball meeting called for last Monday night was" very poorly attended.  Another meeting will be held in Hair-  sines Billiard hall on Satniday night  at fcJ o'clock for the purpose of organizing and electing officers for the coming season. Communications have  been, received from outside teams,  Avanting to arrange games, and no  time should be lost in getting into  shape to accept these challenges.

KXEBSBEB  WHEN   ANSWERING   ADVERTISERS,    MENTION   THE   GAZETTE. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE,   APRIL  12,   1906.  CORRESPONDENCE.  Penticton, B. C, April 8, '06  Editor JHedley Gazette.  Sir: It appears necessary to state  publicly the facts in connection with  the late "trouble" here, as the fometi-  tor.s of the disurbance have apparently  entered, upon' a campaign of gross  falsehood and misrepresentation Avith  the sole object of placing the management of the Southern Okanagan Land  Company in a false position. I can  reach the public only through the  medium of the press, and as your paper  is willing to give the facts in connection with any matter of public interest  I feel that the space taken by this letter will be gladK' conceded.  From motives of personal  antagonism and socialistic  doctrine  a couple  ..-���������of agitators   and   calumniators   have  since tlie inception of the Land Company endeavored to prevent the development of Penticton by the most foul-  means.    They have devoted  their entire attention to an effort to tear down  all that.we'have built, up. Their efforts  culminated in an outrage, the  motive  of which is so apparent to /the. people  of Penticton that one of the chief instigators, renowned for oily, ingratiating, quiet   and   secret   prevarication  Avill   have   to   practise   his   arts    for  some    time    in    order    to   attain   to  his   previous   standing   in   the   column hi'ty.     Some   lives   are   built   upon a foundation of falsehood; but most  insecurely,   for   sooner   or   later   the?  structure  totters.     I Avill  show,   Mr.  Editor,   that   the  late, agitation  was  not directed against the Chinese, but  against the Land Company.   The ringleaders did not see far enough ahead.  They influenced a crowd against some  Chinamen working for the Land Company and  competing in no Avay- with  white   labor,   while ..Chinaman    here  ���������competing  with   white men  and  hot  employed by our company, were left  alone.  Let us review the labor situation as  connected Avith the  Land  Company,  !    since Ave began business.    All development work  has  been clone' by AA'hite  men.    Not a Chinaman has been employed on our irrigation or field work.  White men have done our work at a  considerable advance over wages paid  in   the- northern  part of  the  valley.'  What land or orchard company in the  Okanagan  has not  employed Chinamen at such Avork?   We stand alone.  Any reasonable man can see that we  have,  been  giving Avhite men all our  work at advanced Avages.    To further  illustrate our standing in the question  of Chinese labor, I called for tenders  for the digging of tree holes some time  ago.    The tenders were to be in by a  certain date,  and  the only  tender I  received was from a Chinese contractor  in Vernon.    Did lie get the job ?   No.  I tried white man after white man and  finally succeeded injgetting a man to  take   the   contract,- not   at   Chinese;  prices but at an advance of 12 per cent,  on  the Chinese figures.   Any person  going over our bench, lands, before the  outrage and since, may see white men  digging our tree holes and receiving  $3.00 per day,  Avhile  Chinamen   may  be seen digging tree holes for pri\Tate  parties.  Our Chinamen were not brought into replace white men, .-is the chairman  of the meeting called at the B. C, hotel  so falsely and maliciously stated, but  to clean up some brush land,   i offered  white men this Avork at a   price,  per  acre Avhich would enable us to dispose  of the land  at a  profit,  but nobody  Avanted the work.    I also offered them  2)   per   cent,   more   than    Chinamen  would, do  the work for.   That is not  business, but I mention it to show our  sentiment.     What   I   wish    to   have  un Icrstiiod clearly and   unmistakably  is that this Company has always been  an   em dover of Avhite labor, even at  a considerable advance over oriental  labor.    No sane  laboring man,   however,   expects  us  to .pay a   price  for  clearing   which   Avhen  added   to   the;  original purchase price and the cost of  selling, amounts to more than we can  receive for the land.    Will   you  clear  up a bush ranch at a cost of $150 per  acre and sell it for $100 per acre?    Of  course not.    We have a lot of land to  clear up, hut if we can't get it cleared  at an average price of  $100  per acre  we shall not clear it, as at the price we  sell this land we would lose money if  Ave paid more for   clearing   it. r The  proposition,  then,  is this.     If Avhite  men can't do the  work at a   certain  price per acre the Avork Avill  not be  done unless by other  labor.    Should  the ground remain covered with brush,  non-productive and absolutely valueless  to  eA'eryone,   rather   than   have  orientals  clear it?    I -claim   that no  matter by whom the land, is cleared,  it is productive of good to the whole  community,  Avhite. laborers included.  On every ten acres a family Avill be  settled���������a  family  that Ave hope  can  Good,  Sale  HEDLEY  Investment  And  Make  Money  ���������M.-I|A_.   is the supply jK������int for the Nickel Plate ,11161111-  nUUIvj    tain, 0.11 which is situated the famous " Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine  in Canada���������and Snany other'  promising mines and prospects';,   It is the'mining and business  centre of the ' ���������'.-���������' ,'  Similkameen  the new mining district Avliich has already, been proven, by a  small amount of development Ayprk, to be one of';the richest  gold, copptji- and coal mining sections of '��������� ..

Bush land, as I have already  stated, produces no return. Clear it  and hundreds of families are settled  on it. They produce, and also buy  groceries, clothing, hardAvare, building materials, dry goods, etc. Is not  the entire community benefitted thereby ?  No reasonable man dare say nay.  The meeting to deal >vith the question Avas called in a private Avay on  exceedingly short notice. The position  of the Company was misrepresented  by those who saw an opportunity to  make some unpleasantness for the  Land Company. The Avorkingmen  present, with the position falsely stated, indorsed the proposals of the agitators. I have no fault to find with  any workinginan there belieA'ing what  he was told as true. The Avorkingmen  of Penticton see the thing now exactly  as it is. TheAr know there is no dvsire  011 the part of the Southern Okanagan  Land Co. to replace them with orientals. They see what is at the bottom  of the agitation.  In conclusion, I might say that as  resident managing director of the  Company, I shall conduct its business  as I see fit, regardless of the misrepresentations of professional agitators.  The action in regard to clearing of  land by orientals Avas taken by me as  resident .managing director of the  Company without consultation Avith  any other director. There are no cords  tt> bind me. I have a free hand and  my co-directors haA'e enough confidence in nie, I am sure, to know that  I do not make moves Avithout first  giving them some study. .   .
