In order to procure quicker returns Mr. Merrick will  shipper express a ton of his high  grade to Selby. The balance of the  trial shipment of teutons will follow  by freight. These will be forwarded  as soon as K.V.R. work trains commence to operate.���������Hope Review.  Legislation has been introduced in  the House which will prove a boon to  prospectors. It is in the form of a Bill  to provide that when mineral claims  have been forfeited to the Crown for  an (inpayment of dues, the dilinquint  owners instead of having to run very  grave risks of entirely losing their  properties in the event of wealthy  companies buying them in when the  government sells them by tender, will  now be able to lease them at $25.00  per year renewable, with the privilege  of obtaining a Crown.Grant by putting up over due assessments.  Commenting on the government's  contract with the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., whereby the latter supplies its zinc output on a basis  of 15 cents per lb., A. E. Hagen, writing in the Vancouver Province, says  the contract "appears to have had the  remarkable effect of regulating the  American zinc market, as immediately this contract was entered into.  American zinc, which has been controlled by German-American firms,  dropped from tho artificially high  prices that it had reached due to the  manipulation of these firms with a  view to holding up the Allied governments in their munition requirements.  The price now hangs around the figure  set for Canadian supplies. The policy  has had the effect of saving the Allies  many millions of dollars in the cost of  munitions."���������Kootenaian.

Province: The sun does not have to  work overtime in order to .-hine on  German colonial possessions.  The railroad connecting Port  Albei-ni and Victoria is expected to  reach completion about June 1st.  Kaslo Women's Institute is making  arrangements to sell 150 cook hooks  which it has compiled and printed, ���������  The Review claims that Suuinierland  leads the province in the number of  packages of   fruit shipped   bv express.  AI. Campbell won the H. B. Sweepstakes dog race at The Pas-, making  the run of 150 miles in 22 boms and IS  minutes.

Fernie has a poison case with- a  chink as defendant. Now where is our  white B. C? Next to the war this in  the livest question   in the province.  Cecil McCallum, of Grand Forks,  son of Immigration Inspector Pete  McCallum, has gone to Vancouver to  join the 231st Battalion, now forming.  The Leland, in Winnipeg; at one  time one of the finest hotels in the  Northwest, has had to close its doors,  being hard hit bv the recent prohibition enactment. i  On the last day of March, Freddie  Walsh, the world's lightweight champion met defeat at the hands of Benny  Leonard, of New York, in a ten-round  bout in Madison Square Garden.  Socialist-Liberal Wind-Janiber Parker Williams certainly makes some  ridiculous breaks in the House, but  then what can you expect. Wonder  what fool told   him he was a debater?  Ores ton Board of Trade sent some  boxes of Apples to the members of the  house in session at. Victoria. The flavor of the fruit and its keeping qualifies were the cause of much favorable  comment.  Nelson is arranging for a system  whereby the names and memories of  all the men who left for the war, will  be recorded, with photos attached, the  whole to form a concrete memorial of  the men and their deeds.  Germany is disappointed in the efficiency of the much tooted Zeppelins.  She will not build any more. No the  chances grow less from day to day  that she can find excuse or material  for that kind of plaything. The Terrible Turk is a back number, he has  lost his standing. In the field of Mur-  der-kultur Kaiser Bill and little Willie  now occupy and probably will hold the  footlights.  This regiment is now in France having moved across at the latter end of  February, and is engaged in construction work. Before leaving England  tlie regiment leceiveda great supply  of tools and equipment for railway  and other work, and though fully  trained and equipped ai an Infantry  Battalion it will bo employed except  on emergency, solely as a battalion of  workmen. ��������� All descriptions of trades  and occupations are represented in this  Pioneer Battalion but those mostly in  request are carpenters, linesmen, railway construction men, miners, loggers  and the like. The general handy man  is also a very useful member of the  corps.  Town ids the end of January recruiting for a reinfoicing draft of three  officers and one hundred men was  started, the reciuits however were not  ass-einbled until the middle of February and on the 5th. March they left  Victoria en route for England where  by this time they should have arrived,  that is, the draft i.- in England within  two months of starting recruiting,  A second draft of similar strength  was authorized and recruiting for this  lias been so satisfactory that the draft  is now up to strength and will be  ready to embark within a couple of  weeks.  A thiid draft is now starting and if  rei.-.f.iiils for.this offer a.s,.readily as for  the first two drafts it is expected that  this third reinforcement will be ready  to leave for England by the middle of  May.  Men who wish to get away with the  least possible delay and see a little of  France before the summer is well  through cannot do better thau join the  reinforcing di:tft. now Leinir assembled  at tho Old DriU'K;.:;, ?.7en-/.i<-> S:..,Victoria, where itcruits can iippiy iu person. Those not in Victoria can apply  by letter and- recruits passed medically fit and approved will have their  transportation sent them to enable  them to join without expense.  Lieut. McMurray   will be in  Hedley  shortly.    Men   wishing   to   join   tin's  corps of Pioneers  should apply to him .  at this Office.  *     .  WAR  NOTES        1  The "Enterprise" says practically all  the members of Blairmore Masonic  Lodge have enlisted.  "Libre Belgique" the daringly published Brussels newspaper, the home  of which the Germans, despite their  most strenuous efforts, have failed to  unearth, has now reached its fifty-  third number. Domiciliary searches  for its editors and staff take place  everywhere, but no single capture has,  been made.  Chilliwack has a boarding house  keeper, who in addition to her other  duties has knitted 40 pairs of sox for  the boys at the front. She probably  will never know how much she has  actually accomplised towards heartening some of our soldiers who are bearing the brunt of the fight.  Britain has the biggest hospital ship  in the world. She is the new 48.000-  ton liner Brittanic, which was built at  Belfast for the White Star line. As  soon as completed she was taken over  by the Admiralty, towed to Liverpool  and converted into a hospital ship.  The Mauretania and Aquitania are  also being used for hospital service.

Editor  , Editorial Quotations  It has been the custom of oj>-  p'osition parties, since the beginning of the party system, when  they had no alternative policy  to offer and no valid criticism  to make of the administration,  to console themselves and try  to justify their existence by  complaints of inefficiency and  corruption, the latter being  more generally, on this continent, referred to as "graft."���������  Hope Review.  The Finance  Minister's state-  ��������� merit   shows that   the   government   has   pared   the estimates  of expenditure down to the last  cent.    Since   the fixed   charges  of the province-'.amount to $3,-  300,000. it is seen that it is difficult   for   the    government   to  make further  reductions.    For  public, works   there is the large  vote of $3,000,000 of  which $2,-  500,000   is   foi-    roads,    streets,  bridges     and     wharves.    How  necessary this outlay  is, an expenditure   which in some   provinces is  charged to capital account and added   to the debt of  the province, is to be seen when  account is taken  of the nunier-  ons   demands   that have   been  made upon the government this  session for road improvements.  The vote for hospitals has been  increased   by   $150,000,  also   a  necessary expenditure, that for  all   public     institutions   being  slightly increased.   Administration   expenditure    other   than  salaries has   been decreased by  $70,000;  that  for education   by  $50,000: and   the vote   for agriculture by $30,000.    The cost of  transportation  lias dropped by  $40,000, and a saving of $100,000  has been made in miscellaneous  items.    Thus   the   government  has been closely scrutinizing the  estimated   expenditure   lists in  an honest attempt to meet the  decreasing    revenues,   without  impairing   the efficiency of administration or neglecting those  calls upon   the provincial  trea-  ury which the conditions of the  province   imperatively demand  be met.���������British Columbian.  need not weigh heavily with  the public. The firm of Foley,  "Welch & Stewart are paying  interest already on money borrowed on their own credit to  the extent of between five and  six millions and that sum has  been put into the construction  of (lie P. Gr. E. over and above  any liability which tlie province  has in the P. G. E.,to date.  Hon. Lome Campbell explained to the house that the payment was made in the exercise  of a right reserved by the government in its agreement with  Foley. Welch & Stewart, and  was acted upon in order that  the future financing of the road  ���������might--not be impaired. The  government has the covenant  of the firm for the repayment  of the instalment, and this being the case, the province is put  to no risk as the firm is perfectly good for that amount.  The incident only emphasizes  the necessity foi the government devising some plan by  which the firm, in the absence  of a market for its guaranteed  bonds, can proeure, the money  necessary to complete the road.  Alberta's operations in connection with the Dunvegan  road appear to indicate how  this may be done, as has already been pointed out in this  column. No doubt Premier  Bowser, who has found the solution of the land question, the  prohibition problem and others  during the present session, will  also find one for the P. G. E.  which will give as general satisfaction as his land policy is giving.���������J. P's Weekly.  emnly assures his Dutch Jackies that  they must be prepared to meet the  allied navies of Britian and France,  the griiiiuess of the joke which he is  springing on said Jackies entitles him  to.be promoted to. the position of end-  man rfor the tioupe,���������Ed.     .  "We will belaying steel oil the Similkameen line for the Great Northei n  railway, a distance of 100 miles from  Midway, B. C, to a point near Princeton, B.C, by way 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.  Amateur politicians who are  more concerned about making  campaign material than they  are with the real interests of  the province will probably try  to make capital out of the fact  that the government, a couple  of months ago, paid an instalment of interest on the P. G. E.  guaranteed bonds, but that fact  I   TEN YEARS AGO   1  (fl ifc  (fl  il>  #i   From the Hedley  Gazette  Files   -jj  | of April 5, 1906 j������j  The Midway Star discounts Chief  Engineer Hogeland's statement as to  probable time of starting track-laying.

Boeing started in on Monday morning on his new building for  the barber-shop next door to his pool  room. Bath-rooms are to be fitted up  in connection.  Geo. Cochrane has the contract of  putting in 650 feet of flume on Mr.  Atherton's ranch down at Atherton's  Corner. A hydraulic ram will be used  to force the water up  on to the ranch.  Princeton has organized a baseball  club. A meeting with the Hedley  huskies may be expected before the  ball season is too many weeks old.  Already Hedley twirlers are licking  their chops in anticipation.  Mr. D. McCurdy, Collector of Customs in the lower Similkameen, was  in town Tuesday. He reports two  more railway camps having been put  in between Armstrong's and the Boundary, but says that they are scarce of  men, teams and everything else.  Scott Ave. is being treated to a new  seven foot side walk along the east  side from Irene St. north to Webster.  Dr. Whillians and other property owners between Irene and White streets  are putting up for the portion of the  walk along this block, and F. Eraser  and partner are shouldering the expense from White street north to  Webster.

Music  Refreshments  Tuesday   evening   was   the   annual  meeting of   the Hedley   Brass   Band.  The   officers   were re-elected   for   the  coming year and are as follows: S. E.  Hamilton,   President: Dr.   N. W. McEwen, Vice-President; A. T. Horswill,  Secy-Treas.; G. E.   French, and G. M.  McEachern,     Auditors.    Mr.'    Gerald  Barnum is the   leader and the organization   is looking   forward to a   most  successful   year.    They     favored   the  towns   people to  a very fine open   air  concert during   the  evening and   it is  understood that if   the people of Hedley would get together and construct  a  band   stand   down town   we would  have these concerts   more frequently.  This is one of the organizations which  go to make a town all that it ought to  be and it   is up to the   citizens to give  it more of their interest and   support.  In Hedley the question of tlie few dollars it would   require to    procure   the  necessary lumber for the building  tlie  band boys want, is but a circumstance  and the actual   benefit, derived   would  pay a   dividend  worthy of consideration on the part of any  of our people.  We   are not  so  enslaved by   circumstances   that   we     have   to   sacrifice  everything, music, pleasure, education  for the sake of a few dollars.

Bennett, of Oroville reports  that the old Rainbow mine, from  which marvellous gold specimens were  taken years ago has been bonded to  Spokane people who expect to start  extensive exploration work in June.  As the first payment on the bond has  been made it is certain that the work  in contemplation will he carried out.  Under a Spokane date line the following article appears in one of our  exchanges:���������"Preliminary arrangements are being made to incorporate  the Hudson Bay Zinc Mining Company for $5,000,000, divided into 1,000,-  000 shares at $5 each, and announcement of this intention is being advertised in the papers of British Columbia.  The proposed incorporators are M. W.  Bacon, W. E. Cullen, R. K. Neill and  A. C. Jamieson, all of Spokane, who  acquired a three-year lease on the  Hudson Bay group of zinc mines, near  Salnio, B.

Early Spraying Wili  Larger Crop  Tis practice is of great importance in keeping an orchard tree  from'pests and diseases, or in  cleaning up one that has been  neglected. At this season caustic washes can be applied which  ; would defoliate a tree in leaf.  As a combined insecticide and  fungicide for use at this time  commercial lime sulphur solution diluted one to nine or ten  is most commonly used, but soluble sulphur has also given good  results; Bordeaux Mixture is  employed against apple antrac-  nose, but this comes in a differ-  eategory. Sufficient force and  enough material to thoroughly  cover the bark and penetrate  into the outer bud scales, cracks,  crevices, etc., must be used, and  a nozzle employed throwing a  coarser spray than that used for  summer work. The addition of  two-third lbs. of well screen  slaked lime to each 40 gallons  of diluted-spray makes it easier  to see where and how the spraying has been done.  The   application     should   be  made after winter  pruning has  been completed, and, in general,  it is well  to defer   it until near  the time of swelling of the buds.  For   peaches it   is important  that spraying be  completed before   the   blossom    buds   have  swollen, otherwise the spores of  the Leaf  Curl   fungus   may be  "washed by rain   inside  the bud  and produce infection   in   spite  of spraying.    On the other hand  the   closer   the   application   is  made to the time the buds begin  to swell the   more   effective   it  will be against the over-wintering peach   worm.    It is   important that the grower keep these  two facts in   mind arid   use his  judgement accordingly.  For apples   spraying may   be  postponed until   the first green  s is the call of  -Country, Enlist  King* and  -day  ������jll^jljjnmWilMliraiijinn";i������w������^^  .Hedley Methodist Cj-iubch  frank stanton, b. a.

Add -'Black Leaf 40" at the rate  of one part to 900 of diluted  spray and the stem-mothers of  the apple aphids which are at  this time clustering on the  opening buds will be destroyed.  For pears the spraying should  be given when the buds are beginning to swell to make sure  of the Blister Mite.  Where gooseberry mildew is  serious as is often the case  where English varieties are  grown a dormant spraying with  lime sulphur will assist in its  control.���������Agricultural  Journal.  While the total value of farm  products of British Columbia in  1914 was over $30,000,000 the  province bought from the rest  of Canada $20,000,000 worth of  the same class of goods, including $2,400,000 worth of flour,  and from other countries similar goods to the value of $5,000,-  000. These purchases from outside included $5,500,000 worth  of live stock and $4,500,000 of  dairy products, $3,000,000 of  meat products, $800,000 of fruit  and $1,400,000 of eggs. All of  which goes to show that there  is still a good home market for  British Columbia farm products.  ���������News Advertiser.  ficate issued by inspector W. H.  Lyne of the Vancouver government inspection staff, is exclusive of any exports from other  districts, and shows how without any special preparation for  entering the potato trade, the  lower mainland has taken advantage of the shortage in the  potato crop in California and  Eastern Canada. What amount  of money this crop has brought  in, the inspection office could  not say, but it is presumed by  the Vancouver Province that  the export of potatoes the past  month was responsible for $40,-  000 in cash being brought into  tho Province.  Scottish machinists are on strike,  delaying seriously the manufacture of  munitions for the Allies. Canada  might help out in the emergency, if  we had the chance.
