Last week Mr. Voigt's mining force  made an important strike on the No.  1-1 mineral claim in a shaft which is  down 40 feet. They have about 10  feet of high grade ore and no walls or  indications of walls in sight. Until  cross-cutting is started it will be impossible to tell the size of the ore body.  The snow is about all gone and the  weather is fine.

Smith,  president of the Diamond Vale Coal  andiron Co., whose,holdings are situated in the Upper Nicola on Tula-  meen Creek, ..the ,Giizette made inquiries as to progress of development  on the Company's properties and results of same. Mr.. Smith was willing  to discuss the ihatter arid .some of the^  information gleaned from '.him affords  explanation, of J^nyrtlie' railroads are  anxious to build, into a country which  a few years ago was thought to offer"  no tonnage for them.  The .Diamond-Vale Coal and Iron  Co. have now been working steadily  for some 18 months with diamond drill  to prove the extent and value of their  holdings. A judicious amount of surface work weis done before drilling and  four holes from 600,to 900 feet deep  have been put clown, showing a dozen  or more seams, one. of which is 16 feet  thick, two of them 6 feet thick and  three more that are each 1 feet thick.  Another hole was started last week  which it is their intention to drill to a  depth 'of 1000 feet. In the former  hole, at a.depth of 860 feet, the drill  appeared to have penetrated an oil  basin, and while no real gusher is yet  in evidence the drill acted as if it had  dropped into a\regular tank of oil.  The exposures along Quilcheria Creek  show the measures to be over 8 miles  in extent and the quality is excellent.  Mr. Smith expects when railway connection is completed to supply this  portion of the valley with abundance  of cheap fuel. The route of the C.P.R.  branch runs through their holdings  and Great Northern' engineers express  their intention of running a spur in  from their main line at the West Fork  of the Otter.  -:o:  MINESand  rE/VL   ESTATE  HEDLEY, B.C.  r JftiTaSnlv  Watchmaker  HEDLEY.B.C.

The postal authorities find that His  Majesty's malls are being made the  means of distributing throughout the  country postal cards of a very indecent  and suggestive character.  The Criminal Code of Canada makes  it a criminal offence for any person to  manufacture such cards or to expose  them for sale.  Section 179 of the said Code reads as  follows: "Every one is guilty of an  indictable ' offence and liable* to two  years'' 'imprisonment' ivho knowingly,  without lawful justification or excuse,  manufactures, or sells, or exposes for  sale or to public view, or distributes  or circulates, or causes to be distributed or circulated, any cihscene book, or  other printed, typewritten, or otherwise written matter, or any picture,  photograph, model or other object  tending to corrupt morals."  The police ln\ve been instructed to  take proceedings against all persons  exposing for sale such cards, and Constable Haynes is on the 'lookout to see  that nothing of the kind be permitted  here.  '"We will be laying steel on the Similkameen line for the Great Northern  railwav, ;l distance of 100 miles from  Midwav, B.C., to a point near Princeton, B. C, by Avay of Oroville, Wash.,  inside of 30 days, and, as the work is  not difficult, the line should progress  at the rate of a. mile a. day."  A. H. Hogeland of St..Paul, Minn.,  chief engineer-of the Great Northern  system, gave out the foregoing statement yesterday before going to Portland, Ore., with F. E. Ward, also of  St. Paul, general manager of the company, on the way to the Sound, where  the officials will pass a week inspecting new work.  Mr. Hogeland said that the grade  work is practically completed on the  Midwav,extension in British Columbia.. The work was let in 25 mile sections and pushed along with little or  no delay.  "Of course," lie added, "there is some  top grading to do at certain points  on the line, but the work has so far  advanced that the rail layers can begin work some time next month. It  should be completed no later than  August, and it may be that rolling  stock will go over the line before that  time."  "We have a party of surveyors in  the field between Wenatchee and Oroville, by way of Brewster," hei said in  reply to a question. "The engineers  are-going over-a preliminary survey  niacte several vears ago, and thev are  now locating the route that is to be  used by the company between' the  points indicated.  "I am not sure when the work of  grading will be taken up, but it is  hardly likely the company will lose  any time after the final surveys are  made.  "I can not tell you at what points  the branch will tap the main line, but  it probably will he'in the neighborhood  of Wenatchee?, following the Okanagan river north to Oroville."  While Mr. L. W. Shatford preferred  to have any statement that might be  given out concerning the Penticton  incident made by his brother, W. T.  Shatford, tho resident managing director of the Southern Okanagan Land  Co., who was entirely responsible, he  answered frankly questions asked by  tho Gazette.  So far as he was personally concerned, he had always been opposed to the  einployment'of Chinese labor, and had  never employed them about his premises,  even  for housework,' preferring  rather to pay the, fares of servant girls  from Toronto and other eastern points,  but as ho was only one of nine directors of the Company, he was not'in a  position to force  bis entire views on  this question upon the Board.   He was  " not the resident managing director  of the. company and had only at times  discharged   tlu;  duties   of  managing  directoi in the absence of his brother."-  In the present instance he knew that  his brothei-  had endeavored to avoid  the employment of Chinese,  and he  knew also that last month the Company were paying  white men $3 per  clay   to   dig   holes   for   tree-planting  when private individuals on adjoining  lots were getting holes'dug for almost  half the price by Chinese.   With the  competition between land companies  that was carried on, where the Southern Okanagan  Land Co. had to compete  with those at Peachland.  Sum-  merland, Kelowna, Vernon and Keremeos, all of whom employed Chinese,  he had no doubt that the question of  labor for land-clearing,  tree-planting,  etc., had been a difficult problem for  the resident managing director to deal  with, but as for the merits or demerits  of the Company's position in - the incident which had been-precipitated'by  the action of the conspirators at Penticton, it was not his province to discuss at this juncture.   When asked as  to whether his brother was prepared  to discuss them,  he replied that he  was-quite'sure that he was, and had  no doubt that he would do so.  For his own part, the first he knew  of the affair was when he had been  told of it ehaffiingly by Premier Mc-  Bride who directed his attention to a  statement of it in the Province.  state-  C. P. R. FROM NICOLA  Expected to Reach Princeton  This Year, and    .  THEN ONlOMIDWAY  This Is Not Likely To Stop Plans For  Section To Penticton.  Reliable information has been received at Victoria that the C. P. R.  purposes pushing on its line from  Nicola east to Midway and that the  section to Princeton is likely to be  completed this year.  Meanwhile work will go forward for  building westward from Midway into  the Okanagan, and the branch from  Tuk-Ul-Nuit Lake, near Fairview,  northward to Penticton will be made  to enable the big Canadian road to  re-capture its share of tlie Boundary  and coast passenger trade -which has  slipped from it since completion of  the Great Northern into the Boundary  district.  THE PENTICTON TRIAL.  Month   In   Jail   was  the  Sentence.  $25 .or  One  The Gazette has requested a  ment from Mr. W. T. Shatford which  it is hoped will be at hand in time for  this issue.  FIRE AT KFREMEOS  Sunset Deal Off.  Word came from Princeton at .the  end of last week that the deal between  the B. C. Copper Co. and the Sunset  Co. was oil', and that Messrs. Morrison  and   Turner   purposed   moving   from  there to-day with their families.    This  is very much to be regretted.    It was  hoped  that at the meeting held last  week   in   the Boundary,  the   Sunset  people would hesitate before pursuing  their obduracy to the point of breaking  off negotiations.    However, it is satisfactory to know that the injury which  might   result from  the circumstance  will be minimized by the certain knowledge that the   trouble   is   with   the  people   and   not  with  the  property,  which it is generally  understood the  B. C. Copper Co.   were pleased with  and were satisfied with results from  the development that had been done.  That circumstance will tend in a great  measure to offset any injury to Copper  Mountain   that  under other .circumstances would be sure to result from  throwing up the bond on that valuable  property.  P. Bromley's  Blacksmith  Shop And  Dwelling Destroyed.  Mining Deal Pending.  Negotiations are pending for the  bonding of a group of claims to the.  south of the Nickel Plate. The deal is  with an English concern and Mr.  Gladden is working this end. It is  understood that all interested in the  claims forming the group have signed  the option, which entails the performance of a large amount of development  work.  On Sunday about nine o'clock, fire  was discovered in the upper portion of  of P. Bromley's blacksmith shop. The  dwelling was overhead and it was here  that the fire caught. Too much headway had been gained to permit of saving the building and the difficulty of  removing effects from the upper story  made it impossible to save the household goods, so that all this was destroyed even to the clothing.  The blacksmith shop, however, fared  better and most of the tools, stock and  equipment were got out. Unfortunately there was no insurance, making  the building arid household effects a  total loss.  Qn Monday, work commenced, on  the erection of a temporary shop, for  Keremeos couldn't afford to do very  long without its siniddy. The readiness with which assistance was proffered must have been most gratifying  to Mr. Bromley.  The Gazette had a call on Saturday  last from J. M. Robinson, the King of  Summerland, who is always a .welcome  visitor in the newspaper office as he is  an old-time journalist of the..prairie  province. As Columbus discovered  America for the Dons, so J. M. can be  said to have discovered the Okanagan to the Manitobans, and in doing  so, he has given to this portion of the  province a ready-made (not the hand-  me-down type) gilt edge article in the  way of settler, of whom we cannot  have too many, for in doing a good  turn for themselves they have taught  us a whole lot about how to manage  things in own country. From .T. M.  you never hear the plaint of the pessimist and his optimism is of the practical judicious kind that figures out.  The trial of the Penticton olfendeis  took place last Saturday before Magistrates   E.   Bullock-Webster,   A.   H.  Wade,  C.  R.  Townley   and   Sinvthe  Parker.     Barrister   Fred   Billings of  Vernon prosecuted and ' Patten   was  there to defend.   Many witnesses were  examined and the bench had no difficulty in arriving   at  the   conclusion  that there had been an  unlawful assembly and that the accused had .been  head and front of the same.    But they  made the penalty as light as the gravity, of the offence would permit.   The  'principal offenders were G. E. Winkler, G.'S. Mohr and J. Mitchell.   Mohr  paid his fine, and the rest, with expec- <  tant eyes upon the grandstand for any  crumb of applause or appreciation of  mock   heroics   that  might   be  lying  about, elected the dark dungeon.   But  if Winkler and his disciples imagined  that   they   were, to   be   allowed   the  Avhole stage and all the bouquets they  were mistaken, for the  Grit  Government telephone was all the while listening with strained ear, from dear  John at Hedley to far away Nicola,  and quite as hungry for their share, of  the applause.   At Nicola the bare mention of prison walls awakened a throb  and forthwith the announcement was  made  that Nicola, would donate 200  plunks to pay fines, which was immediately bulletined by clear John.      ������������������  Meanwhile the public caught on to  where it was all coming from, and for  these little buttinskies it was "love's  labor lost." As for the culprits under  sentence, mammon triumphed over  the glories of martyrdom'; and so the  unfed clungeon re-closed its jaws.  Shades of the martyrs to the public/  weal, from Gallileo to Johnson of  Ballykilbeg, what an escape from loss  of halo !   ( No Chinook )  Taking the small boy's version, scripture savs : "Him 'ats' got gits, an' him  'at aint got gits left." In like manner  the glory of the Penticton incident  will belong to the posterity of the.  trie') already enumerated, not even the  names of the balance being known.  History will dub them merely "the  other three."   . ^   METEOROLOGICAL.  The following are the read  ings show-  ing  temperature,  etc.,  for  the week  ending March 31st :  AT THE MINE.

Men's Trousers  The decision of Chief Justice  Hunter that the  Province    of  British Columbia is still to  be  held liable for the amount of  subsidy voted to the Midway &  Vernon Railway will give satisfaction to a large section of the  Interior of  the  province,   and  while the road will not prove of  any direct benefit to us here in  tlie Similkameen, it will mean  much for tlie Boundary, Okanagan and Spallumcheen, and the  people of the Similkameen are  uroad  enough  to  rejoice at a  boon to others even ir they  are  not to benefit directly, for they  themselves know from sad experience what it is to be immured through years of weary waiting and can appreciate the  de-  liverance which the building of  the road will prove to dwellers  and property owuers   on   the  West Fork of Kettle River.   Of  course' it will mean a ��������� drain of  some six million' dollars from  the treasury of the province and  the Government  of this province are not over-burdened with  an extra amount of ready cash.  While there is  no  reason  to  believe  that   the    Government  had any wish to  repudiate an  obligation  once   entered   into,  yet they had a   responsibility  laid on them as well, to see that  the company which was. to  receive  this  large   sum   of   the  people's money had done  their  share to earn i,t by carrying out  substantially the terms of the  contract.  Apart from the benefit to be  derived from tlie building of the  road and opening up a large section of valuable country for the  exploitation of minerals and  improvement/of farm lands, the  reputation of the "province was  at stake, and whether rightly  or wrongly, they would have  been charged with the repudiation of a business obligation,had  the decision of the Chief Justice  gone otherwise, or the Government been disposed to deal  more harshly wil-h the holders  of the charter who were up  against a hard fight both with  poverty and with strong financial opponents who were checkmating them at all points. All's  well that ends well, and let us  hope that the Midway & Vernon people will show themselves  worthy of the further consideration shown them, by getting  down to business in real earnest  and prosecuting the work of  construction without cessation  until the road is finished.
