averaging very cold east of the Rockies and Avarmer than usual on Pacific
slope.
Second disturbance of April Avill
reach Pacific coast ahout 6, cross Avest
of Rockies country hy close qf 7, great
central valley 8 to 10, eastern states 11.
Warm Ava,ve will cross Avest of Rockies
country about G, great central valleys
8, eastern states 9. Cool Avave Avill
cross Avest of Rockies about 9, great
central valleys 11, eastern states 13.
While temperatures will frequently
move up and down they will.average
unusually cool from about 1 to 8, with
high temperature Avaves not far from
March 31 and April 9. From near 10
to 17 another long low temperature
period will occur. Near 22 and 23 a
severe northern cold Avave may be expected to carry frosts farther south
than usual, Avith very cool all over the
east of Rockies country. These dates
are for meridian 90. You must count
a day or two earlier for Avest of that
line and a day or two later for east of
it. The average temperatures will be
high on Pacific slope Avhile they are
low east of Rockies that the month
Avill average much colder east than
west of the Rocky ridge.
Every storm wave of April Avill develop unusually great intensities in all
its Aveather features. Rainfall will be
deficient between meridian 00 and the j
Rockies, and east of the Alleghanies,
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and about the
upper lakes rainfall will be from to
ahoye normal. Altogether April will
be a cold backward month east of the
Rockies, and bad for all kinds of crops
while, nearly the reverse will be true,
for the Pacific slope.

The Smithsonian Aveather records,
including 000 to 1,000 volumes, covering -10 or more years and about 100
localities, lie buried in the weather
bureau vaults. Joseph Henry, preceded by Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin
Franklin, the three greatest scientists
of their times, believed that such records would constitute the true basis
for weather research. But a lot of
mere clerks accidentally got into the
weather bureau without having any
scientific preparation and are now

bureau Avhich leave those  valuable re-
After tAVo weeks in session the- Legislature can be reported  to have made
very satisfactory progress.   The Opposition  fresh  from the  hands of the
electorate Avhen they received intimation in a very practical- Avay that  the
carping of the previous  three,years-
was  not considered  in  the public interests and  that something different
was expected  from  a   self-respecting
Opposition, has profited by the lesson.
There has  been a disposition on the
part of the leader of the Opposition
and his followers in the House to avoid
useless   criticism   and   to   judge   the
measures  brought down on their merits/   The result has bee.n that the most
of the bills-.introduced into the Legislature have received  the practical en-
dorsation of the Opposition.
Even  John Oliver has given little
trouble  this  session so far.     He has
even compliinented the Government
on some of the legislation introduced.
On the. amendment to the Assessment
Act,  hoAvever,  Mr.  Oliver could not
restrain himself.   This gaA'e him  an
opportunity to get off a speech more
resembling   the  days   gone   by   than
anything else which had occurred this
session.    But even then the member
for Delta Avas Aveak.   He could find
little fault Avith the amendments Avhich
reduced taxation and he could only go
back to his supposed grievances of 1903.
The principal debate for the session
is expected  to  be on  the subject of
better- terms,  which has from time to
time during the past Aveek been stood
over at the request of the Leader of
the Opposition.    The Premier's resolution  is acknowledged to he a. fair presentation of the  situation.    The preamble outlines the main features of the
conference recently held at Ottawa in
which  the Premier put up such a determined fight for the cause of  the
proATince   against  the  power  of   the
Federal Government and other provinces combined. After reviewing these
the resolution proper follows, which is
as follows:
1. That this House endorses the
course taken In- Honorable Richard
McBride, Premier of British Columbia,
at the said Conference in respect to all
the foregoing described actions.
2. That this House is further of opinion that the proposed additional allowance of ($100,000) one hundred thousand dollars, annually, for ten years,
as compensation for the recognized
claims of British Columbia is inadequate, and cannot be accepted as a
final and unalterable settlement.
3. That this House is of the opinion
that a matter of such a voluminous
nature as the claims of British Columbia, for special financial recognition by
the Dominion was, and is, not of such
a character as can be justly considered
by a. Conference of the; kind above
mentioned by reason of the fact that a
propei investigation would occupy
much more time than would be available at such a conference were the
claims of British Columbia only to be
considered : and that a proper im-esti-
gation of such claims Avould entail
those  eha
to His Excellency the Governor-General, with the request that it be transmitted, through the proper channel,
to the Right Honorable the Secretary
of Stace for the Colonies.
,-' What the course of the Opposition
Avill be on this resolution is not yet,
revealed. It Avould appear, however,
that it is giving the leader of the Opposition considerable trouble to find a
logical way out of the difficulty into
which.-the.'resolution throws his side.
He Avill ,bave no Avish to follow the
Premier and support the resolution,
but how to oppose this and still put
up a pretence that he is, prepared to
stand for provincial rights even'in'the
face-of -the Libera! party at Ottawa
Avill make it-a hard task for him.
The Socialist leader, J.H.Hawthorn-
thwaite, has given notice of a motion
that he will move to strikeout the first
section.of the resolution. Making no
reference to the remaining sections,' it
would appear that he is prepared to
support, all that1 the Premier stood for
but does not wish to go on record as
supporting the Premier m the course
he pursued.
The result of the debate Avith the
consequences which follow it as far as
this province .in-'concerned.:is being
watched Avith the keenest interest.
The desire of the Premier is to keep
the. subject above party politics, and
his resolution is drawn specially to
avoid anything which might in the
least look like demagogism.
The bill to provide for an eight hour
day in smelters in the province has
passed its third reading. For three
sessions this bill has come up on the
initiative of Mr. Hawthorn thwaite.^ It
Avas deemed unwise the first year that
it AA-as introduced to pass the measure
owing to the fact that it might disastrously affect the smelting and mining
interests in the Province. Believing
in the eight hour principle the Premier
and his supporters in the House advised the owners of the smelters  to
PROGRESS ON V. V. & E.
The Track-layer Still Working Between
Nighthawk and   Boundary Line���
More Men Are Employed.
According to rumor the end of the
steel ou the V. V. & E. has been advancing and receding at intervals, between Nighthawk and the Boundary
line.-..
Of   the   latest reports,   the one to
Avhich the Gazette is inclined to attach
the most credence is that given over
the phone from Keremeos to the effect
that on Saturday, 30th ult., they Avere
Avorking on a. small, trestle about four
.miles south-of the boundary line : but,
that Avheii this 'Avas, completed better
progress was expected,  for, two reasons.    One  reason  Avas that the crew
had been augmented by about 100 men
and was now 145 strong.    The  other
reason   is  that since  they left Night- ,
hawk a,succession of trestles was encountered,  every one of which  occasioned delay,   but   that with the completion of the one they had reached,
no more trestles or bridges intervened
betAvee'n that and the next crossing of
the Similka nieen river at Armstrong's,
Avhich   is   about   ten   miles south  of
Keremeos by the track.
There is  nothing definite yet as to
what action may be expected with reference to resuming Avork on the grade -
to the north  of Jveremeos.   There is
evidently no spur to force on this piece
of work such as.exists in  the case of  ;
prepare for such a bill and arrange the
Avorks which they controlled so that
the eight hour dav could be made commercially possible. The. owners acted
on the hint and the Premier stated on
the debate on the bill that after visiting the A-arious parts of the interior he
had come to the conclusion that the
time Avas ripe for- such an act. The
bill only awaits the assent of the
Lieut.-GoATernor noAv to become krw.
The ability of the Government to
take care of the interests of the province in the face of the machinations of
the Dominion administration is ably
pi-OA-ed by the papers brought down
by the GoA-ermiient in connection witli
the Indian lands at Prince Rupert
which the Dominion'sought to hand
over to the G. T. P. while the Liberals
in the province condemned even the.
sale of 10,000 acres by the province.
The Provincial GoA'ernment on the
19th of this month passed an order in
council laying formal claim to the 13,-
000 acres which the Dominion tried to
convey to the'G.T. P.. and the railway
company has been so informed.
There   is   an   absence  of   fireworks
completing the track to Keremeos.
There is in-the immediate vicinity of
the Armstrong bridge, a. stretch" of
road for a mile or two that is down
four feet below grade, and that will be
washed out with high water if the
track is not completed before then.
The material Avhich is to raise, this
grade to the proper height is in a huge
gravel bank at Keremeos, ten miles
distant, This ivill have to be loaded
with the steam shovels and hauled
back by train, and after the grade is
raised to propei- height, it must be rip-
rapped to Avithstand the water.
Some of these days, the Gazette will
haA-e to lelieve public suspense by going down there and seeing exactly
Avhere the track-layer is.

Columbia and examining conditions on
tlie spot: and that an independent
tribunal such as suggested in the memoranda mentioned above would be the
only just method of arriving at a proper decision as to such claims; and
that, particularly, in view of the fact
that other provinces of the Dominion
are making similar claims of a financial
character there is such a conflict of
interest as would militate very strongly against an equitable decision as to
the claims of British Columbia being
arrived at by a tribunal composed, in
its entirety/of representatives of other

���1. That an humble address be presented to His Honor the Lieutenant-
Governor, requesting that a copy of
this resolution be forwarded to His
Excellency the Governor-General in
Council for consideration ; and that a
further copy thereof, accompanied by
what documentary evidence His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor in Council
may deem expedient,  be transmitted
among the members for the most part
this session.    The  member for Similkameen,   who is now regarded as one
of the veterans in the House, occupying a seat in the front row of benches
and close to the members of the  Go\"-
I eminent, is not devoting much time to
i speeches.    He is actiA'e," however, and
i is regarded with suspicion by some of
I the other members of the   Legislature
j who are apprehensive, that he is devot-
! ing too much time in pouring into the
ears of the  members of  the Government the  needs of his constituency to
large grants in the way of public work.
Some of the  newer members who are
not so well acquainted with the  ways
of the   House   are anxious to know
Avhat is keeping the member for Similkameen so busy, but older ones regard
his actions Avith suspicion  and warn
the uninitiated against the  bringing
down of the estimates when an explanation may be forthcoming.
The member for Similkameen, moreover, is the youngest member in the
present House, although he would
never be taken for it to the casual
observer.

The Hedley Rifle Association began
the season's shooting Avith a match on
Good Friday in Avhich eight contestants took part. The wind on the
ranges was a little too raAv for comfort and too gusty for the best of
shooting.
At a meeting of the Association
held tAvo Aveeks,before the match, the
.question of affiliation Avith the D. R. A.
and procuring service rifles was discussed, but the unsettled condition of
affairs in connection Avith the adoption of the Ross rifle as the arm of the
Canadian troops caused definite action
to be deferred, and meanwhile the
shooting will go on as usual without
any restriction as to the rifle used insights with which they may be fitted.
It is possible, however, that a little
later on the 300 and 400 yard ranges
will be discarded and 500 and (iOO yds.
taken instead so as to conform with
the regulations in vogue at Provincial
and Dominion matches.
The cup changed hands again in this
match, the winner being L. C. W.
Rolls Avith a score of 05, out of a possible 75. The medal Avhich av.-is shot
this time on the 200 and 400 yard
ranges, was retained by T. D. Pickard
who was the Avinner last time.

The Department of Militia and Defence appear to have got matters into  a lamentable iness in .connection with  the new rifle with which they have  arranged to arm the militia and permanent forces of this country. The  arm selected is the Ross rifle, for which  the government have entered into a  contract with the "Ross Rifle Co.. of  Quebec, to supply the Canadian troops  with 40,000 rifles, and of these, 20,000  have alreadvbeen delivered and $  000,000 have been paid over.  During the past year articles were  appearing in the newspapers from  , time to time in wirious quarters to the  effect that the. weapon was dangerous  to those who used it, and that most  serious casualties, which were attended  in some cases with loss of life, had occurred from accidents that in a sense  could not lie really classed as accidents  inasmuch as they were wholly duo to  defects in the rifle from fan It a- construction.  The dissatisfaction  appears to haA'e  passed the newspaper stage and during  the  present   parliamentary  session at  Ottawa-, it has been made  the subject  of inquiry  both in the  Senate and in  the Commons.    In the Senate the rifle  is championed by  Sir  Richard   Cart-  wright,   whose   son,   Col.   Bob   Cart-  wright, is inspector of musketry,  and  in all probability has given it unqualified indorsation or the Militia Department would  not  have  dared to   take  the   serious  step of  adopting it as the  arm of the Canadian troops and entering into a hard and fast contract with  tho manufacturers for the supply of.so  largo a number of these rifles.     In the  Commons   the attack   upon   the  rifle  was led by  Col. Worthinsrton and the  most damaging information   has been  brought out,   for  it has  been shown  that   the government  weie in possession of reports from  tlie  officers of almost every corps supplied with them,  and these reports one and all mentioned the unsafe character of tho. weapon,  some of them telling of serious mishap  resulting   from   the  use  of  the rifle.  The N. W. M. P., the Royal Canadian  Dragoons and the Third Regiment of  Canadian Artillery at St. John, N. B.,  Avhich are, all permanent corps,  or regulars,  are on  record in the shape of  government  reports,   in   terms   that  make any further issue of this rifle to  the Canadian citizen soldiers criminal,  until the defects are remedied.    One  of these corps reports twenty per cent.  knowledge of rifles to enable them to  judge : .but the question arises that if  this be'so why do these men continue  to  occupy  their present   positions as  Changes for contract advertisements should I officers in the  permanent corps?    Vn-  i in the office by noon on Tuesday to secure .  fortunately,  it does not, appear ahat  the reports were accompanied by findings on the part of militia boards of  inquiry in the various corps reporting.,  The King's regulations make ample  j provision for the holding of such in-  j quiries without the'cost of a'cent to  ! the country, in connection with them.  And worse still; it does not appear  that the Militia Department took any  step to appoint a. commission of experts to make thorough examination j  of the rifle before it Avas adopted',- into make due inspection of the rifles  delivered, before they were accepted  and paid for.  Neither are the Dominion Rifle Association wholly blameless in tlie matter : for while a good deal of credit is  due them for looking askance at the  Ross rifle and resisting the attempt  made in the summer of 1900 by the  Militia Department to compel the use  of the Ross rifle in the D. R. A. and  Bisley competitions, they should have  gone a step further and put into some,  concrete form the objections Avhich led  them to turn it down for the Bisley  and other competitions. It is to them  that the public look for technical  counsel and advice in matters of this  kind and there is .disappointment that  in this particular case they have failed  to give that advice in the clear definite  manner that they were led to expect.  At present, it Avould appear that the  only ones who speak well of it are the  manufacturers, the Militia Department, the Carfwrights and Colonel  Hughes. The descriptive catalogue issued by the manufacturers make the  weapon the acme of perfection, and  the compiler, designer and printer of  the catalogue have certainly done their  part to make it a model arm for the  Canadian troops; but the-public will  demand some further assurance before  they cease to be anxious for " the man  behind the gun," and especially so  when among Canada's citizen soldiers  are their own friends and relatiA-es.  The most rigid inquiry should now be  made to place the blame Avhere it belongs, and to clean up this Avhole mess.  115 and the note circulation $3,510,593.

THE  UPPER   SIMILKAMEEN.  (Continued from lust week.I  Charles Camsell's Report.  Among the  most promising claims  in the district -are  the  St. Lawrence  group,   owned   by   the   .Similkameen  Mining it Smelting Company, of Vancouver.     These  were  first   located in  the fall of 1000 by ii   party of Swedes,  and are situated on the western side of  Bear creek,  and on the contact of the  granite   with   the   schists   and   limestones.    Tlie' schists are mica  schists,  and   they   enclose   narrow   hands   of  Avhite crystalline limestone.    They dip  at about.05s towards the granite,  and  are cut by some large and highly mineralized .dikes  of   granite   porphyiy,  which have a north  and  south  trend  approximately parallel to the.trend of  'the granite.-    The ore is always found  associated with the limestone, aiid frequently replaces the lime bands entirely. The granite, porphyry dikes appear  to be tho source of the ore.    The limestone bands,  being  the  most soluble  rocks, have acted as channels for mineralized solutions emanating from the  .    dikes,  and they haA'e become at times-  entirely replaced by -sulphides.'  These  solutions  ascending from below,  and  following the lime bands have deposited  their sulphides against   the  mica  schists, which always act as a hanging  wall to tlie vein.    Two veins have been  opened up on this group, each of them  from seven to eight feet wide.- and the I  ore in them appears to be almost pure  pyrrhotite.     The  values  are  high  in  copper, gold and silver, and altogether  the  property  has  the  ear marks of a  permanent producing mine.  Another important group of chum's  is the  Independent group,  owned by  Messrs. .Johnson, Holmes ������fc Heiming,  and situated on the summit of the divide between Bear creek and the Cold-  water river.    This group is also on the  contact of the'granite body \vith mica  schists.    Here the ore body is a highly  .mineralized  zone ������������������ of   rock   extending  from  the  edge  of the   schists   about,  ''.: 1,000 feet westward into   the granite.  Two   thousand   feet   away   from  the  schists the granite  becomes  gneissic,  though still  holding inclusions of the  mica schists.    No sharp line of contact  could  be discovered   between the ore  bodv and the unaltered  granite, only  that  the  mineralization   of sulphides  appears to gradually  decrease until at  1,200 feet away from the schist it disappears.    The  ore   bodv  is  highly altered and kaolinized, where mineralization is greatest, and it appears to be  of the nature of a dike of granite porphyry   intruded  between   the schists  and the granite,   though it is possible  it may only be a  mineralization and  alteration of the same granite at and  near the contact with the schists.    Inclusions of mica  schist occur in   the  unaltered granite as well as in the ore:  body.  The greatest alteration is about,  the centre  of  the   mineralized  zone,  Avhere a small A'ein of pine  iron and  copper sulphides cuts the porphyry at  an angle of 45 degrees.    The feldspar  here is kaolinized,   though the quartz  is unaltered, and some secondary cal-  cite has  been  developed.    Mineralization throughout the body of  the  porphyry is usually by individual crystals  of iron and copper pyrites, more rarely  by veins and bunches of these  minerals.    Only in the  highly altered zone  does oxidation extend  to  a depth  of  twenty feet from the surface.    Some  molybdenite occurs in thin   seams and  flake-s near the  contact with the mica  schist.    The values are entirely in copper, and are low,   but the ore  body is  an enormous one.    The group consists  of ten  claims,   which   have  all   been  staked on the same  contact,   running  down into the Coldwatev river.  Numerous other claims were visited  in this section of the  countrw   among  PROPERTY  A  BEDIEY  I n vestment  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous .."Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many .other  promising mines and prospects. It is the mining and business  centre' of the  Similkameen  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development .work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.

The former lies in  the same series of altered sedimentary  rocks as were described on the St.  Lawrence! group. These are cut by  dikes of a porphyritic character which  strike about 380������. The ore occurs as  little veins or bunches in the sediments  at and near the contact of the; dikes.  The minerals found are pyrite, chal-  c.-opyrite and pyrrhotite, and the values  are in gold and silver.  At Boulder creek the claims are located in a soft green serpentine, which  often has a schistose structure developed in it, and which appears to be an  altered volcanic rock. The ore bodies  are in blanket veins interbedded with  the country rock, and the. minerals  occurring are pyrite, chalcopyrite and  some galena. The values are in gold  or copper, or both.,.the one increasing  as the other decreases.  Owing to the enormous rise in the  price of.platinum in the last year, and  to the. fact that the basin of the- Tulameen  riA'er   once   produced   a  larger  amount of platinum than any other  part of North America, it is altogether  probable that attempts will again-he  made by interested parties in the near  future to locate the source of the metal  in this district, or to work some of the  higher bench deposits of gravel which  are known to carry platinum, but  which formerly necessitated too large  an outlay of capital to work: Prof. J.  F. Kemp spent about three months of  the summer of 1900 in investigating  the geology of the platinum, and  though he avus noc successful to the  extent of finding any large bodies of  rock which could be profitably mined  for platinum, he was able to throw a  great deal of light on the origin and  occurrence of the metal. His results  are embodied in Bulletin 193, of the  United States Geological Survey.  The Tulameen section of the country  presents a great many more difficulties  to the prospector than the Similkameen country. The former is very  heavily timbered, and trails are few  aiid rough. Rock exposures, howeA'er,  are more common, except where the  country is underlaid by the schists and  limestones, as in the upper parts of  Bear creek. Here the growth of timber is heavier than usual, and the  country is so heavily covered with  drift that rock exposures very rarely  occur, and it has only been by much  labor that ore bodies have been located. Tt is here though that conditions  for the formation of ore bodies are so  favorable that other important discoveries are to be expected.  In conclusion, my acknowledgments  are due to many of the prospectors in  the country for their courtesy and  readiness to assist, and particularly to  Mr. C, F.

Rheumatism  I have found a tried and tested cure for Rheumatism! Not a remedy that will straighten the  distorted limbs of chronic cripples, nor turn bony  growths back to flesh again. That is impossible.  But I can now surely kill the pains and pangs of  this deplorable disease.  In Germany���������with ft Chemist in the City of  Darmstadt���������I found the last ingredient with  which Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Remedy was made  a perfected, dependable prescription. Without  that last ingredient, I successfully treated many,  many cases of Rheumatism; but now, at last, ituni-  formly cures all curable cases of this heretofore  much dreaded disease. Those sand-liko granular  wastes, found in Rheumatic Blood, seem to dissolve  and puss away under the action of this remedy as  freely as does sugar when added to pure water.  And then, when dissolved, these poisonous wastes  freely pass from the system, and the cause of  Rheumatism is gone forever. There is now no  real need���������no actual excuse to suffer longer without help.  Wo sell, and in confidence recommend  Dr. Shoop's  Rheumatic Remedy  JOHN LOVE.
