The past season has been a tolerably  gay one in the matter of purely local  parties and' in addition to these, Hedley party-goers had been royally entertained at important dances both in  Princeton and Kevemeos. Under these  circumstances the Hedleyites who had  partaken of the hospitality of Princeton and Keremeos friends, feeling that  it was up to them'to return the compliment, and realizing that the season  was passing, found it advisable to  move in the matter, with- dispatch.  Another feature of the situation which  laid the obligation more imperatively  upon them was the fact that Hedley  being centrally located between Princeton and Kereiueos afforded the opportunity for each to meet the other.  -The common duty in the matter-  weighed alike upon ladies and bachelors, and the idea dawned simultaneously upon each. All that was needed  was some party to make the; move and  curious to.relate, without any pi-e-  arrahgemerit,-both bachelors arid ladies  met at the home of Mrs. Revely, when  it was agreed that the, ladies should  take the responsibility, the bachelors  guaranteeing "assistance and the assuming of leading items; of expense,  such as music and hail, while the ladies  were to manage the rest, including invitations to outsiders, refreshments,  reception &e. Invitations Were given  to other ladies who were not at the  original meeting so that all those who  wished to avail themselves would have  a like opportunity to take part in the  affair and extend greetings to guests  from the outside.  The date chosen was with a view  not to clash with other engagements,  and it appeared to suit outsiders sis  well, for never before was there so  large a, representation from outside  points, Princeton and Keremeos each  contributing'almost a score.  The hall, while smaller than the one  in Kevemeos, has a floor that, was declared^ by all to be in the.best trim of  any they hacl tried this season, and  the musicians, Messrs. Hill and Simmons, of Hedley, fairly excelled themselves, their time being exactly to suit  the dancers and their repertoire choice,  wide and varied���������rare old classics like  the Kerry Dance, as well as modern  airs, being adapted to conform to the  dances for which their measure was  suited.  The guests, both visiting and local,  made up an array of beauty, grace and  terpsichorean skill rarely met with,  and the hall was filled almost to congestion. >>  For refreshments the Miners' Uuion  hall had been procured, where tables  were laid, lanterns being placed along  the way to light the guests.  Those present from the outside were :  From Keremeos���������Mrs. Lowe, Miss  Lowe and Mr. Charlie Lowe, Mrs. Daly  and Messrs. Will ami Thos. Daly, Miss  Armstrong,  Miss Kirby,  Miss Shaw,  Continued on Page Pour.  The following brief summary write-  up of Camp*Hedley appeared in the  World and News-Advertiser of Vancouver, and in the Nelson News. The  News-Advertiser version of it makes  the Hedley Board of Trade responsible  for it, which is an incorrect and iuuuk  thorized use of the Board's name, and  is the more regrettable where strictures of a more or less personal nature  were indulged in. The management  dispute the figures given as output,  which they characterize as exaggerated and misleading.  The article,  as it  appeared in  the  Nelson News, is as follows:  On the north side of the Similkameen  river, at the' mouth of Twenty Mile  creek, Osoyoos mining division, British  Columbia, is the-town of Hedley. "Although little information of the town  has been given to the leading public,  it is nevertheless one of the most important mining points in the province  and leads all the other camps as a gold  producer. Situated rfs it is in a veritable nest of valuable mining properties  at various stages of development, from  the Nickel Plate, which is a bonanza,  down to the undeveloped prospectors'  claims, it has undoubtedly sufficient  mining resources to make it the "Gold  Ctipitalof British Columbia," and this  title it has fairly won already. What  other camp in the province can boast  of a shipment of $80,000 in gold bricks  from one monthly cleanup ? Or of frequent shipments of forty, fifty and  sixty thousand dollars in purest quality ,.from monthly cleanups? Yet- this  is^therecordpt Hedley.  The following; extract will be interesting in this connection:  "Though it is a little more than three  years from the time the first ton was  milled, the camp has 'since justified  their faith in it .by becoming the lai-g-  est^prddiicer of gold alone of any camp  in British,..Columbia.  "The history of mining is only now  beginning in this portion of the Similkameen district."  This quotation is from a report by-  Charles Camsell, in the summary report of the department of mines issued  recently. Mr. Camsell headed a geological Survey party and spent several  months at Camp Hedley last year.  The most important claims in 'the  camp are the Nickel Plate and the Sun-  nyside, owned and operated  by the  Yale Mining Company, whose property also includes some 25 other claims.  Upwards of a million dollars has been  expended by this company and its associate, the Daly Reduction Company,  in developing the  Nickel   Plate and  Sunnyside.    In the developing of the  Nickel Plate it has proven to be one of  the largest gold bearing ore bodies in  the  world.     While  there  is   a huge  amount of underground development,  proving the ore bodies in depth,  the  ore supply up to the present has been  taken from large "glory holes" on the  surface.   These glory holes are simply  large quarries cutting into the surface  of the vein,  which  is fully 75 feet in  thickniss and proven  by  the excavation to be continuous for a distance of  over 8000 feet.   The ore is treated by  the Daly Reduction  Company in a -10-  stamp mill and  cyanide plant in the  valley  below.     The   capacity of this  mill is about 15500 tons per month. The  mine and mill are run by water power  obtained from a Hume three miles long.  The. company owns an electric tram  line about a mile and a, half long to  carry the ore from the mine to the ore  bins, and a gravity tram line of about  10,000 feet in length and some -1000 feet  vertical height, which carries the. ore  in 5-ton skips to the  mill.   This tram  line is frequently referred to as the  scenic  railway of  British Columbia,  and from the splendid  view it oilers  through the beautiful Similkameen  valley and over the tops of mauy  snow-capped peaks.  The present stamp mill was constructed with a view of treating the  ore in a small way during the development of the mine, and up to the time  of railway transportation into the  camp, and it is generally understood  the-mill will be increased to a capacity  that will be in keeping with the large  bodies of-ore developed in the miue.  It is an   interesting fact that in the  mining of these ores from the glory  holes all of  the  rook  excavated has  been put through the mill without any  discard as waste. The production of the  mine last year, in bullion, was $700,000.  The Pollock mines, owned and operated by the Pollock .Mines Company,  Ltd.,  which lie on Henry creek, two  miles to the west of'Hcdley on the opposite side of the Similkameen river,  have a considerable amount of development already done and give promise of  a v?ry bright future.    Mining men of  the district are very much pleased with  the.results and when recently a block  of 25,000 shares of treasury stock was  offered for sale for development purposes the citizens of Hedley in a few  days bought up the entire,, allotment,  who feel confident it will compare favorably with the Nickel Plate,  which  has been and is yielding handsomely.  The Kingston Gold Mining Company  has an excellent property adjoining the  Nickel Plate group of mines; which has  been well explored and is now arriving  at the shipping stage, and with the advent of the Great Northern to Hedley  the Kingston will be a big shipper.  The Golden Zone, lying northeasterly from the Nickel Plate, which is well  known as a very valuable property, is  now rapidly developing into a producer. It is owned by Marks, Brodhagen  atid others, and is a free milling property, similar to that of the Nickel  Plate. Machinery is now on the  ground for a stamp mill, the work of  getting material out for construction  is being rushed and the mill is expected  to be in operation in the early summer.  The promoters are most optimistic.  Another promising property is the  Florence group of mines, owned by  Thos. Bradshaw of Fifteen-mile Creek,  lyirrg above Hedley, in Twenty-Mile'  canyon.  The V.V. &E., being constructed by  the Great Northern: from Spokane to  Vancouver, has reached Kererpeds, 20  miles from Hedley. The railway company appears anxious to reach the  gold mining camp, a dozen or more  construction outfits being at work at  different points along the route. The  most difficult part of the work is now  completed and the roadbed ready for  the ties, and it should be a matter of  but a few weeks until the steel is laid  to Hedley.  The merchants and business men are  quite jubilant andvconfident of Hed-  ley's future. The town itself has many  enterprising business men, and some of  the business places would do credit to  towns many times the size of Hedley.

Writs  have been issued in Vancouver by the Daly Reduction  Company  and the Yale Mining Company against  M. K. Rogers,  thus instituting litigation which promises to be of considerable interest.      The Duly Reduction '  Company   owns   the  famous  Nickel  Plate mine of Yale, which has already  paid about a million in dividends and  for which an offer of four million dollars cash has been refused.     The Yale  Mining   Company  is   a  development  company operating in the same seebkm.  The control of both  companies was  originally  vested in  the late Marcus  Daly, the well known mining millionaire of Montana, the stock having descended to  the Daly estate.   The defendant, Rodgers, was for years one of  Daly's most trusted lieutenants,  who  was kept in the field on the lookout for  promising mining investments, and in  this way travelled over a great portion  of  bo.th   North and South  America.  It was Rodgers who originally bonded  the Nickel Plate on behalf of Marcus  Daly.   He was the first manager of  the mine and is the man who put- it on  a paying basis.   One of "the original  locators, by the way, was Mr. Wollas-  ton of this city.  Mr. Rodgers, it appears, worked on  an arrangement With Mr. Daly whereby he received a quarter interest in  any properties he found after his  principal's outlay had been recouped.  Iu the case of* the Nickel Plate the  presence of a third party modified  this arrangement with the result that  Mr. Rodgers claims a fifteen per cent,  interest in the stock of the company  owning the Nickel Plate, and he asserts that'this stock is still held by the  Daly estate and that he has never been  able to, get it.  This complication, it is understood,  is what led up to the present litigation. It -appears that he acquired a  number of mineral claims and other ���������,  properties in the same section on Mr.  Daly's behalf, and for the purposes of  convenience of handling kept the title  in his own name. These properties  Mr. Rodgers declines to hand over till  he receives the stock which he claims  is due to him, and the suits which have  just been started have been brought  by the companies to force Mr. Rodgers  to hand over the properties stated to  be held by him in trust. He will, it is  understood, ask for the stock interest  to which ho' claims he is entitled, by  Way of of counterclaim, and as property -worth a very large amount of  money is involved, prolonged litigation  is likely to result.  Mr. Rodgers is exceedingly well  known in mining circles both in British Columbia and in the States, and  has a great deal of capital at his back.  He paid a visit to Victoria not long  ago, and while here stated that with  all his experience of mining he knew  of no field so promising as British Columbia, and he has proved his faith  by recently acquiring considerable interests in the more northern sections  of the province.  Mr. Rodgers' attorneys are Peters &  Wilson of this city, the plaintiffs being  represented by a Vancouver firm.  W. B. Wilcox, who founded the  Phoenix Pioneer, and conducted the  paper with signal success for nine  years, has sold out to T. Alfred Love,  brother of Jno. Loye, druggist of this  place. Mr. Wilcox has made for himself a provincial reputation as a. levelheaded, capable publisher, and Phoenix Camp loses a good man. As Mr.  Love also owns the Morden Chronicle  and the North Vancouver Mercury, it  is not known what arrangements will  be made for future management of the  Pioneer.  .->���������  m THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   APRIL .9, 1908.

Some of the Canadian papers  that were most hysterical over  Kipling's first contribution to  Collier's Which appeared under  the caption "Letters to the  Family" are becoming reconciled and have even been so  graciously patronizing as to  commend subsequent instalments. By the 'time that the  series has been completed and  the work makes its appearance  in book form, those/initial denunciatory thunders will read  very funny.  When Kipling expressed  his  disappointment- at the. lack, in  Canada, of a  "responsive  note  of empire", he was only voicing  a-truth   that   many Canadian-  born   subjects' of   the   British  Crown   whose    conception,   of  Canadian amour proi'RS- is of  a less bumptious character than  that displayed by the hysterical  objectors, were willing to admit.  Is it not a noteworthy fact that  those who were most ready to  denounce   Kipling   are    themselves the most obvious exam-  ples of that lack of the "respon-  1   sive not-e of empire," for are they  not in many cases the very ones  avIio would recognize no  right,  of an old -Sikh   pensioner  who-  had fought- Britain's.battles on  ���������j'ar-on?   Holds,,   to   exercise   his  claim of  British  citizenship  to"  residence  in any   part   of   the  empire to which he owed alleg-  -ianco and- for   which   he   had  fought ?   Why should men. who  had thundered denunciations of  these   Sikhs   and   Hindus   and  denied   them  the the right   of  residence in this portion of the  empiie,   take   offence   at    the  plain true statement that there  is absence   of   any "responsive  note of empire"?  Then again, there is Canada's  attitude on the subject of contribution to the maintenance of  the British navy. After the  colonial conference many a true  Canadian in whose heart the  imperial spirit burned, had to  hang his head with shame that  Canada's voice at that conference had not been heard to ring  'out with that of Sir Richard  Seddon, Hon. Alfred Deacon  and others who proclaimed a  Avillingness to bear their fair  share of the burden of empire.  Doubly humiliating was it when  a few weeks later Sir Richard  Seddon on his way home to  New Zealand, in a spirit of true  imperialism, felt constrained to  address and did address audiences in Canada in which his  leading theme was the duty of  the colonies each and all to  share in the burden of maintenance of the navy. Canada was  made to suffer as a whole in  that self-wrought humiliation,  (however  much they may be conversant  with weevil in wheat) are apparently wholly ignorant of  matters pertaining to mining  and metallurgy; and ���������newspajjer  writers who have no technical  knowledge of a highly technical  subject will do well to leave it  severely alone until they have  had some training. Mr. Ross  puts, the matter very plainly  and convincingly which, every  one who is at all conversant  with the chemical properties of  the cyanide of potassium must  admit, for it is an exceedingly  unstable compound -..which will  break up immediately in the  presence of ei th eP oxygen or of  vegetable matter in the streams.  The great harm in wantonly  circulating false statements, of  this kind is the bad effect produced on the imagination of  those who do not know any.  better. Even mining students  in the assay laboratories have  been known to develop incipient  cases of salivation by imagining  that they had taken in mercurial fumes while retorting. The  most deadly cyanide poisoning  which-people below the mouth/  of Twenty-mile will ever get.  from the D. R. Co. is the poison  of misrepresentation contained  in that unfortunate fishy paragraph in the Trumpet which is  fast qualifying for for the nickname of fish-horn.

It  was evidently a sudden recollection of  the eternal fitness of such an arrangement which made him tarry on his  Prince Rupert trek aud back-track  from Otter Flat. This is probably a  little retrogriide flank movement that  he picked up long ago in Coxey'sarmy.  Hit it easy on the electric light this  time, Peck.

Father Con an; of Kamloops, wasN in  town this week.  Miss Richards, of Loomis, is visiting  her friend Mrs. Logsden.  The Misses McLean left on Monday  morning for Penticton after a very  pleasant fortnight's visit with friends  in Hedley.  There will be a- dance in Keremeos  to-morrow night to which Hedleyites  are invited. Proceeds in aid of the  baseb'alf team.  An Athletic Association has been  foi-Tnedin Keremeos and this organization will provide and handle the ball  team for the coming season.  Mrs. Hamilton's sister, Mrs. Koebel,  ,of Rossland, and her father, Mr.  Giles of Sand Point, Idaho, were called  to Hedley owing to an unfavorable  turn taken in her illness.  The political pot is beginning to bubble across the-International boundary  line. The choice of candidates is 'engendering a little bit of ill-nature in  certain quarters.  Two births in one week���������who says  Hedley isn't growing? A civil engineer and a blacksmith are, in consequence, wreathed with smiles, and receiving congratulations.  Pierre John, son of Ashnola John,  killed a cougar last week across the  river from Brudshaw's and came in  for the .$15 bounty which is now given  for the killing of these animals.  E. D. Boeing and George Bowerman  last week completed assessment woik  on the Eagle's Nest up Twenty Mile  canyon, and brought down some promising looking l-ock, well mineralized.  Dr. Inman went to Princeton yesterday, morning, and will be back in Hedley on Friday evening.' He goes out  on Saturday morning, so those who  wish to see him should call on Friday  evening.  The Great Northern Hotel bar has  been moved to the new building erected  immediately west of the hotel and is  now in cosy, commodious quarters.  The old bar is being changed into a  sitting room.  , It doesn't look at present as if Hedley was going to have a ball team this  soason. What a-decline this is from  the day of Wes Rodgers, when Hedley  paialyaed everything" in sight and  wept for other fields to conquer.  The daily mail doesn't suit everybody. One man expressed disapproval of it the other day hy remarking  that three times a -week was often  enough for a man to be dunned, aiid  didn't see why people should want it  every day. , ~������  A Frenchman named Rosseau, after  sizing up all other places in the Similkameen, last week bought Lot 2,  block 25. He couldn't see any money  in the. purchase of town .property unless there was a pay-roll in the immediate vicinity.  No definite announcement has yet  been made in upper Okanagan papers  as to when the steamer Okanagan will  begin her daily sailings. When she  does, it is Mr. Welby's intention to  ���������give daily stage service between Penticton and the Similkameen.  Rev. J. Thurburn Conn went to  Peachland on Monday. He has engagements to deliver addresses there  and at Kelowna, and it is understood  will preach at Keremeos on Sunday,  having arranged an exchange with  Rev. A. II. Cameron, who will preach  on Sunday in Princeton.  Fayette Harris, who spent the winter in the Palmer Lake country, came  to town at the beginning of the week.  He reports work in progress on the  Palmer Mountain tunnel project,  where they are busy drifting on some  t)f the ledges cut by the big tunnel in  order to have a. good supply of reserve  ore broken and blocked out before the  mill is completed.  Things don't always spell the way  they sound. For instance an outside  paper in describing Camp Hedley  changes Golden Zone into "Golden's  Own." In like manner the writer  when doing some conveyancing effecting property in New Brunswick a- few-  weeks ago, in taking down the name  Grand Manau was on the point of  writing it "Grandma. Nan."  J. T. Prather- was in town on Tuesday with the imported Percheron stallion, Dupleix, owned by the Southern  Okanagan Percheron Horse Association. The stallion is a superb animal,  five years old and weighing 2010 lbs.  The owners deserve credit for the enterprise, displayed in bringing in so  well-bred and high priced a horse, forth o purchase price was $1000.00. Dupleix will again lie on exhibition at  Tunis Bros' stables in Hedley on or  ahout April 13th.  POISONING  THE  FISH.  Editor Gazette: -  Apropos of the endemic agitation against the Daly Reduction Company, and for the express  purpose of giving out, once for all,  correct information in reference to the  alleged pollution of the Similkaineen  River by the waste-rock from these  works, I beg to present to the public,  through your columns, the actual  facts of the case.  It will be evident to thinking men  that 1 would gain nothing by a deliberate misstatement of fact "for a purpose", as has been widely insinuated  in the Provincial Press within the pas-t  few days, by a meddlesome and untruthful writer.  The conditions here discussed have  existed for over four years and will  continue to exist as long as The Daly  turns.a. wheel, so that misstatements  may lie proved readily" at any time by  competent judges.  In the first place, I challenge any  competent chemist to show a significant cyanide reaction in water taken  from the Similkameen immediately below' the mouth of Twenty Mile creek.  In the second place, we use no chemicals in the treatment of our rock' except the cyanide of potassium.-  In the third place, the clean grains  of quartz rock that make up the waste,  of these mills cannot possibly be. more  dangerous to animal life than the  regional semirings that are swept into  the stream after every rain or thaw."  In the fourth place, the milky appearance of .the water after tank-  flushing on every other day, is due  solely to the suspension of the impalpable powder of. white quartz, too finely  ground to settle quickly and amounting only to about ten percent of the  total ore milled.  In other words, this powder forms a  perfectly harmless mud that would  never be noticed were- its color brown,  like the'very much thicker "mud of  the Missouri river which all St. Louis  people have drunk for a century and.  which they now insist is healthful.  It goes without saying that it is our  business to save all the sulphides' and  arsenides in our rock, as concentrate,  and to use every,means to prevent the  slightest escape of cyanide solution  which is very expensive, which carries  .the gold and which is used over and  over again until exhausted;  We would be' poor'.millmen indeed  were we to send to waste these so-  called "chemicals", 'in appreciable  quantity. ' .    ���������    ���������<  But even in case some of'the solution  should escape our" vigilance, the potassium ..cyimicje would disappear as  such, and become harmless, within  the distance of a very few feet, through  contact with the oxygen of the air  and the carbon of the vegetable mat-  'ter at the. creek bottom.'������������������  . Some of pur heaviest losses: of cyanide are due to this chemical change  during the process of aerating the  charges.  When it is known that our strongest  solution contains only the quarter-=of  one percent of potassium cyanide and  that the sands are leached by repeated  washings, first by the strong solution  and then by successively weaker solutions down to pure water: also, that"  before the. chargers sluiced is is sucked  as dry as possible by a powerful vacuum pump, it will be understood how  exceedingly small a percentage of potassium cyanide can possibly remain  in the tailings themselves before they  are sluiced out of the mill- by tons of  water under pressure.  And in the case of slimes, they are  agitated over and over again, with  successively weaker solutions as above,  until as free from valuable cyanide  solution as it is possible to get   them.  So that, when these- sluiced tailings,  containing but a fraction of one percent of cyanide while still in the mill,  meet the great volume of water discharged from the water-wheels of the  mill and power plant, to say nothing  of the immensely greater volume of  water in the river itself, theire'eyanide  contents are diluted to such infinitesimal percentages as to make any reference to the "poisoningof tho river" an  absurdity, even if the cyanide were  not destroyed by oxygon and carbon  before tho river is reached, as indicated  above.  Again, it is easily estimated, from  engineering data, that the total tonnage of scourings poured into the river  from the cliff-sides gulches and valleys  of the entire Similkameen basin during  one day of heavy rain is greater than  that of all the sand sluiced out of these  works in a year; and if these same  scourings had been subjected to a  grinding action, as happens to the  rock passing through the mill, it follows that since the material is the  same, the water of the  Similkameen  of the latest Style,  Cut, Fit* and Finish  that can be procured   ?   ?   ?   ?

MONTREAL TORONTO ^WINNIPEG CALGARY  would be milk-white every day in the  year instead of every other day, but  the water would not be one bit more  "poisonous" or dangerous to animal  life than it is now, either above or below the mouth of Twenty Mile Creek.  And, finally, as.a clinching pi oof of  the harmless nature of the discharge  from our mills, I state it as a well-  known fact that cows, the most susceptible of all animals to cyanide poisoning, have boon drinking almost  every day for four years out of pools  formed just below the mills by leakage  from the sluiceway through which all  tails are discharged into the creek, and  that none of them have died of cyanide  poisoning up to the date of this writing.  T hope, therefore, that this plain  statement of the truth of the whole  matter of "fish-poisoning" by outworks will quiet the fears of those  that reside below us, ...if such fears  really exist. There is no danger, there  never was danger and there never will  be as far as we are concerned.  Everywhere on earth fish die from a  variety of causes other than cyanide  poisoning, and it is not only false logic  but it is also unfair play and bad business judgment to jump at conclusions  in respect of the responsibility of this  company for alleged damage done.

Lyon's  ��������� Ranch Which Ended in a Draw.  On Monday 'morning our townsman  Geo. B. Lyon had an  experience  that  very few of our citizens would care, to  duplicate!   Going out to his ranch two  miles west of Hedley he found a couple  of strange rattle in his field.    A drove  of about 100 from some of the herds of  the  lower Similkameen  had gone up  the river, and'these two were doubtless  strays from  it.    Mr. Lyon   proceeded  to drive them out when one burly steer  objected  and  opened  hostilities, ��������� notwithstanding the'fact that  he was a  trespasser.   Mr. Lyon, perceiving that  his culprit was disposed to be mutinous  and had no respect for vested  rights,  didn't like  the  turn   that affairs  had  taken.     Moreover,  in  trials of speed  that  they had. already made, he was  convinced that the steer had him out7  classed and it was therefore, useless to  ��������� think of running.    Neither was there  a  stick   or stone in reach.    Now Mr.  Lyon,  as  we  all  know in Hedley,  is  handy with his two  bunches , of fives  and  has  ring strategy down pat,   but  there, was no reason to believe that his  adversary had any  more respect for  Queensbury   rules than  a  steer,  and  there was  apparently  nothing for it  but to await developments, rely on his  feet work anil act as present exigencies  required.       He    therefore   stood   his  ground-while the animal charged on  him,  head down  and gaining momentum with every' jump.     At the proper  moment   he  deftly   side-stepped' the  cuss,   thus  missing contact   with his  horns, but being rubbed by his side.  Mr. Lyon's next plan  of campaign  was  to shift the  battle-ground ..to a  ' point nearer the fence, for the next  charge, if there was to be another, but  fortunately he was able to reach there  without another trial of strategic skill.  While in a measure the affair could  be called a draw, as neither combatant  had been licked ;   but technically the  1 victory must go to the steer, for he remained in possession of the field.  Next time Mr. Lyon goes after that  steer he will do the job on horseback.  If anybody else wants to tackle it on  foot, "Barkis is willin'."  y^������^������  And  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous " Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold inine in Canada���������-and many other  promising mines and prospects.

Daly had a  strenuous time gathering up her Keremeos fold that made up the six-horse  load.  All the bankers in the valley were  present. There were six in nfnnber  and represented three financial institutions. *        ���������  Three handsome intellectual-looking  school-marms represented the educational institutions of the three towns.  Miss LoWndes on the piano gave the  musicians a breathing spell about supper  time.  When  it came to  ladies' choice the  non-participant   males   derived   rare  sport from  studying the expression in  tlie faces of the gay .beaux, as they sat  waiting   to  be  kidnapped.    That  coy  blending  of  trepidation  and affected  nonchalance bordered on the pathetic.  John Love as a dancing boss deserves  three and a tiger.   As a floor manager  he kept things humming,  and in ladling  out a programme he   gave  full  measure.    It  was the ladies of the refreshment committee,  however,  who  appreciated best the hard work he put  in   to  make  things go smoothly  and  find ways out of unfoieseen difficulties.  The   Shamus   O'Brien   waltz   song,  given by  the  Princeton guests at the  special request of Hedleyites who became enamored of it at Princeton, was  a much enjoyed feature.  Royer's six-horse turnout which  brought a load of fifteen from Keremeos was a swell cavalcade.  ,T. H. Bromley's clog was a winner,  and showed that some of the old chaps  can still hold their own with the  "young  uns."  Everybobyis going to the Miners'  Union Ball'on the 20th, which promises to bo even a greater success than  Friday night's dance.  Mr. C. B. Sword, of New Westminster, Dominion inspector of fisheries,  paid Hedley a visit last week. Whether  his visit was occasioned because-of request made locally for a fish-ladder on  the dam and for the stocking of Twenty-mile lake with a suitable variety of  fish, or complaint had been made from  a certain quarter down the river which  seems to haVe developed abnormal activity in a particular line of mischief-  making. " was hot disclosed by Mr.  Sword who is evidently a capable and  discreet official, and able to keep liis  own counsel. He merely said that he  had been eohsidetihgthe visit for some  time, and wanted to see and judge of  conditions for himself, and he made no  promises of what would be done in the  matter of the request for fish-ladder  and the stocking of the lake, although  it might really be inferred that he was  favorable to the latter inasmuch as he  discussed the suitability of certain  species of fish; His remarks along this  line were particularly interesting and  showed him to be conversant with the  habits of various species. His preference was mountain trout which thrived  well through the various lakes of the  interior, and were not migratory, but  remained in the lakes instead of going  out as others do. The matter, of supplying fry for hikes and streams was  was no longer handled by his department but was attended to by the  hatcheries. Mr. Sword is an old-time  parliamentarian, having been a member of the old Semlin opposition which  rendered good service to the province  during the Rohson, Davie and Turner  regimes, but he is now out of politics.  had a. long death roll of victims whose  lungs became loaded with the silicious  dust inhaled while at work in the dry  stopes of that mine, but in their case  it might perhaps be goiug too far to  say that their ailment came directly  from this cause. Both were good  miners and popular alike with fellow-  workmen and employers wherever  they worked. It is understood that  W. Lacey, the surviving brother, has  been advised to go to the seaboard,  with the hope that the change may  benefit him.   Zttll&WttV&lttkWtttt  NOTICE.  DEATH OF THOS. LACEY.

The Gazette,  knowing that Bill Lacey, brother of  deceased, had been ill with consumption for some time, with little hope of  recovery, concluded that a mistake in  the names had been made, but Mr.  Harris brings confirmation of the paragraph. Tom Lacey, who had been  mine foreman on a property near  Nighthawk, was in good health until a  little over two months ago, when he  was taken ill. It is believed that he  caught the disease from a man who  had stayed with him in his cabin and  died there of tuberculosis. The cabin  had an earth floor and little or no ventilation, and these conditions, most  dangerous in -themselves, would he  doubly so if there was hereditary predisposition to the disease as would appear probable. Both brothers had  worked in various properties in Camp  McKinney, notably the Cariboo, which  ON Similkameen River, '.i miles west of Hedley and- in close proximity to Pollock  Mines.
