Already the ironwork for the big  steel and concrete bridge across Trout  Creek has been ordered. There will  be some forty miles of construction  work handled from here, extending  from Trout Creek to the summit, fill  material etc., being landed here.

AN KASY SHAY!*  HOT & COLD BATHS  'Kcxb door north of Grand Union Hotel  SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  "Where does.the  bird  belong" is a  question  that H. H. Messenger would  like   to find out.     A few days ago he  showed the Gazette a   pretty  bronze  colored carrier pigeon which was resting   quite  contentedly   in   his   hand.  That it is a bird of some note, and if it  could speak could tell a story of travel  that  would prove of intense interest,  is proven by the fact that on one of its-  legs is a bright band of either silver or  aluminum  on   which  are   the   letters  ������������������E.Z." followed by the number "12S0"  It came  to Ins place early   in tho winter and was   noticed   because  of its  tanieness find  the fact that it did not  appear to  be able to  fly any distance.  That it had not got a square deal from  some quarter--and   had   been played a  foul trick by some one who had interfered  with its plans    is  shown by the  fact   that one  of its  wings  had   been  clipped to interfere   v-itb its Hying or  otherwise  the homing instinct would  have asserted itself and the bird would  have been able  to get back to its own  dovecote.    What it may do when the  wing feathers grow out again remains  to be seen    but  in its present state of  disability it appears to be able to take  the situation   philosophically and appear  as  contented us   possible   under  the circumstances and grateful for the  hospitality   that has  come its  way in  Hedlev.     A comparison   of the   bird  with    tin;    pigeon   plates    shown   in  Americana  wauld indicate   that it belongs   to  the  species   known   as   the  Belgian  carrier.    If   any   of our   exchanges can  supply any   information  as to   where the  niterestiiur  traveller  hails  fiom   we   would   be   pleased  to  know,   for curiosity  as well as human  interest makes one   anxious to   find  out.    But  if  tin;  owner should be of  the bloodthirsty  niai-tiiiet   kind   who  kill any of their'hirds who fail to make  the   expedition  a success,    as   ninny  breeders of homing pigeons are known  to do,   then it would seem   better that  the   whereabouts   of   this   lost   bird  should remain unknown to him.  ington government is known to look  with serious misgiving on the fact  that the approaches to the new gate  of the Pacific should thus be dominated, not by Great Britain only, but by  half a dozen European powers.  "In these circumstances the fiction  of tho Canadian government in entering into closer relation with these  long-neglected outposts of the Empire  will not only inure to the advantage  of the islands themselves, but represents, from the Imperial point of view,  ti prudent'and-patriotic step. How  long will it be before England, forgetting the shibboleths of the past in the  necessities of today, will go arid do  likewise���������not in one place, but a hundred, of" her. vast-and scattered empire?"  It is difficult to over-estimate the  value of comment such 'as this upon  the minds of the British public who  remembering Earl Grey's prediction,  aro watching with eagerness the creation of the great Empire of the West.  against  his ability and  fitness for the  office it is regrettable that his services  will be lost to the   House, of Commons  and particularly to the. riding of Kootenay   which   elected him  as its icpre  sentative.      Mr.   Goodeve    has   been  identified  with the  interests of Rossland  since   he  settled   there   in   .181X5,  moving there from ihe town of Ches-  h-y,   Out.,   where he  was in   the drug  business,  although Guelph, Out., was  his  birthplace.    Goodeve  has  always'  ranked as cabinet   timber and had a  portfolio  in the McBride government  in 1908, when he was defeated by J. 7V.  McDonald,  afterwards leader' of   the  opposition  find  now a Justice of the  Appellate Court for British Columbia.  He was also looked   upon as  likely to  receive   the appointment  to a cabinet  position  in   the   Borden   government  as  the  representative for British Columbia  and only the special fitness of  Martin    Burrell   Lo   the   portfolio   of  Agriculture in a cabinet of specialists,  prevented  Goodeve from   landing the  bun, fis he has proven himself a strong  man   in  Conservative  ranks   and one  of the  heaviest debaters-.who  lent a  hand to the defeat of Reciprocity.  AID TO HORSE BREEDERS  Conditions  Upon Which the Grant will  be Given  NEW MINISTER OF MINES  Other Appointment of Duties Among Departments at Ottawa  Ottawa, April 3rd.���������Important administration changes were made by  the cabinet, in a brief council meeting  held yesterday. No less than three  steps were taken towards the reorganization of departments.  Tho department of mines, which,  since its establishment has been under  the control of the minister of inland  revenue, has been .placed under the  control of Hon. Robert Rogers, who  iidds to his present titles of minister  of the interior and superintendent-  general of Indian affairs, that of minister of mines.  The census, statistics find registration of statistics long have been part  of the. department of agriculture.  Those services now go to the trade  and commerce department.  Dr. A.[(l. Doughty, archivist, whose  department has recently been placed  under- tin-secretary of state, is given  the r<-ink and salary of a deputy minister.  Another vacancy in the senate has  arisen through the failure of Senator  Sullivan of Kingston to attend for two  consecutive sessions, Senator Sullivan,  who is an aged man, has been in poor  health for some time. No early move  to fill the vacancy need be expected,  but it is regarded as almost certain  that Mi- George Gordon will become  Air. Sullivan's successor; Mr. Gordon  was member ot parliament, for Nipis-  Mng and made way for Hon. Frank  Cochrane on the hitter's acceptance of  the portfolio of railways and canals.  Three judgeships, authorized by  legislation of last session, were filled  at the cabinet council yesteiday. Mr.  Alexander Haggart, ex-M. P. for Winnipeg, becomes justice of the Manitoba Court of Appeals. Mr. W. L.  Walsh, K. C. of Calgary, goes to the  Supreme Court of Alberta, the judgeship being a new one. Mr. Hector  Chauvin. K. t-.. of Hull, becomes judge  of the new judicial district of Labelle  in Quebec. Mr. Cliauvm is a brother-  in-law of Air. Henri Bournssa, and he  was the Conservative candidate in  Lunelle in 190$.  Believing himself to be justified,  therefore, in further prosecuting the  policy'begun last year, the Honorable  Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, has authorized the continuance  of the grant, to be available for all  Thoroughbred stallions, standing for  public service during the season of  1912, which comply with the conditions imposed by the Department.  The conditions under which assistance will be given are as follows:  1. All horses on account of which  aid is given by the Department must  be registered in the Thoroughbred  Stud Book of the Canadian National  Live Stock Records.  2. Horses   shall  be   of   good   size,  panic    which    is   manifesting    itself  everywhere     among     the     working  classes:  To the Editor of the Express. '���������  Sir,���������The Orient line to Australia  have notified their agents they cannot  take anymore third-class passengers  until August next, ten of their large  steamers being full.     The ships of the  P. & O. branch lines to Australia-are  fill full until the end of July, and it is  impossible to get a third-class passage  to Australia by any line.    All full.  In the case of Canada, the Canadian  Pari fir Railway notify agents that  they .-ire unable to take second-class  or third-class passengers until May  next (except for a special sailing or  so). The Allan line are in the saine  fix, the Royal line from Bristol are  also full until June next for. third-class  the Cun.-ud line from Southampton  are full until May, and so it is with  fill the lines.  In fact, look where you will, the  shipping lines are full in the third-  class fi long way ahead.  The workingman is taking none of  ftl i'. Lloyd George's refreshing fruit,  but is rapidly clearing .out of this  country while he has money. The  cheap-jack offers .of 9d for 4d do not  appeal to him, so he is off. And he  is going to a tariff reform country,  where he can earn-good wages and be  sure of the future.  Truly Lloyd George has been a good  friend to  the. poor emigration  agents.  H.

Horses so approyed shall be duly  and  properly advertised to stand for  service  of mares,   under the ordinary  and  general  conditions  usual   in  the  district in  which they are  to be kept,  at an annual service fee (except in the  case  of Thoroughbred   marcs)  of not  more than  $10.00 to  insure, such service  fee   to  become due and  payable  only when   mares prove to be in  foal.

Dr. Gordon,  of Queen's Umversary, will be elected  convener of the Pres 115-terian committee on church union at the meeting  here tomorrow. The position became-  vactint on the death of Rev. Principal  Patrick of Winnipeg. It Is not likely,  the official figures will be reported by  the committee until the meeting of  the General Assembly at Edmonton  in June. The official reports of the  clerks of the presbyteries, however,,  shows a vote approximately 70 percent for union and 80 per cent against.  This is regarded b\' some church  authorities as being too huge a percentage in opposition for the General  Assembly to warrant organic union.  METEOROLOGICAL.

Since the 21st. of September last,

Tin; Mutual Lite Insurance Co. of
Canada started business forty-two
5-ears ago with assets of only $0,210
and now its assets are. over $17,000,-
000. Its annual income from interest
alone pays all its death losses with a
large surplus to spare, which is j-early
paid back to its policy holders in profits ins lead of being paid but in dividends to the holders of watered stock
fis in the case of the stock companies.
As the Mutual Life insurance Company of Canada is made up of policy
holders only, every dollar they pay,
beyond what is needed to meet death
and endowment claims and other
legimate obligations'connected with
the. business, is returned to them with
profits, thus giving insurance on their
lives at net cost. That is wli5T they
can beat all other insurance companies
���in the profits they give and beat the
fraternal societies that have not the
advantage of the magic power of
compound interest  working for them.

Those who had intended sending to
Westwood it Brooke, at Princeton,
for egg set/tings and have been delaying it are in danger of getting left altogether unless their ordeis go in
within the next few days. Some of
their orders have come all the way
from Spokane and 11111115* more from
other parts of Washington stale.'
With the number of orde.is they have
ahead they could not supply eggs before Ma 5* on orde.is that are going in
now. It will be loo bad if poultry
raisers in the .Similkameen let the op-
portunit\' slip l>5- them fancj'ing that
because it was at their doors they
could suit their convenience. The. 40
breeding birds in Westwood &
Brooke's utilits* pen produced 951 eggs
in March which is a production of 75%
and in April thus far they arc going
S0%. The fact of the ad. being ordered out thi1- week is evidence of how
little, lime local breeders have to get
their ordeis in if the\* want to be in
the swim this year.

Late on Saturday night.L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., came in by auto from
Penticton .accompanied by Mrs. Shatford and their daughter Vera find with
Mrs. Shatford was her friend Mrs. Fred
Wilson, of Vancouver, who has been
visiting with her. District road superintendent, H. A. Turner, was with the
pai't5* and the trip was made in 0. A.
C. Stewart's Cadillac car with R.
Bentley as chauffeur. Mrs. Shatford,
Vera and Mrs. Wilson remained in
Hedley while Messrs. Shatford and
Turner accompanied 115- AV.A. McLean
went up thevallej7- as far as Tulameen,
making stops at Princeton, Hast
Princeton, Granite Creek and Con.l-
mont. They got back to Hedley bite
on Mondfiy night and left again on
Tuesday on the return trip to Peritic-
ticton. Mr. Shatford is following out
the plan he has religiously pursued
ever since he was chosen representative for the riding, of making a point
to see every part of his constituency
several times during the year. Ifc entails an expenditure of time and cash
that very few representatives feel
themselves called on to make, but
here it has worked so well in the interests of both the electors and the
representative that neither would be
satisfied to have it discontinued. By
means of it the representative gets his
information at first hand and knows
exactly what is going on in his constituency which has enabled him to
work at all times for the benefit of his
constituents and avoid the costly mistakes into which others in like position so frequent^' fall.

The church of Greater New York,

ning Lo appreciate Liu- valu" and efficiency of S5'steinatic advertising. Some
pastors have realized the importance
of publicity for souk; time, and have
cmplo5'od various and occasionally
quite sensational methods to attract
attention. But, in a. general wa5r, the
employment of paid display advertisements in newspapers and of electric
signs in the streets is rather a novelty
in religious progaganda. The publicity
commission of the Christian Conservation Congress, making the prepara
tion for the organization of the men
and Iteligion Forward Movement planned for next month, is making good
use of the advertising columns of the
daily papers \)y running displaj- advertisements on the sporting pages.
The members of the commission are
