The Liberal-Conservative Association of Hedlev held their annual meeting on Monday night, 7th inst., in C.  Hairsine's billiard parlor, when a good  representation was present.  J. D. Brass, vice-president, occupied  the chair.  The election of officers, for the ensuing year was -proceeded1 with and  resulted as follows:    I  President���������J. D. Brass.  Vice-presidents���������R. G. Shier, E. D.  Boeing and J. T. Armstrong.  Secretary-treasurer���������A. Megraw.  Auditor���������O. Hairsine.  Executive committee���������Jas. Clarke,  J.

Evans, J. D. Brass and J. T. Armstrong bo appointed to draft a resolution of confidence in the Dominion and  Provincial leaders and in the representative of the district.  The committee submitted the following resolution, which was passed  unanimously:  " Resolved, that the Libe'ral-Conser-  vative Association of the town of  Hedley in annual session assembled  expresses the fullest confidence in Hon.  R. L. Borden, leader of the Opposition  in the Dominion House of Commons,  in the Hon. Richard McBride, Premier  of the Province of British Columbia,  in L.W. Shatford, member of the Provincial Legislature for the district of  Similkameen, and in the Liberal-Conservative party of the Dominion.  Dated in the committee room, April  8th, 1907, at Hedley, B. C."  The chairman requested Mr. Evans  to address the meeting,  which he did  at some length,  expressing his gratification  that in the recent contest the  people of British Columbia had shown  that they recognized  the gravity of  the situation  and had   strongly disapproved   of   the   manner  in   which  provincial lights had been assailed by  the federal power.    He referred to the  saturnalia of vice rampant at Ottawa,  and viewed  the significance of the resignation of Eiiimerson after the specific charges had  been  made in the  provincial press in Quebec.     The attitude of the respective parties in Victoria on the subject of " better terms "  as shown by the votes and speeches in  the House,   was touched upon and the  peculiar position  taken by the leader  of the  Opposition,  J. A.  Macdonald,  pointed out.   The danger to this province, he felt, lay mainly in the attitude  of Sir "Wilfrid Laurier and in the tendency  of the   Imperial authorities to  decline  going into   Colonial   affairs,  where  a conflict of interests existed  between any particular province and  the Dominion government.    In such  cases they were apt to relegate it back  to the Canadian parliament where instead of being considered on its merits  it might be obscured in other issues,  and the province fail to get justice in  consequence.  Evidence that L.W. Shatford has  been working hard for his constituency  is seen in the fact that this riding fares  with the best. The district votes of all  the'ridings is. given, but for lack of  space the full list of special votes is not  published. Only those concerning  public .-works in this and adjoining  districts is shown.  The supplementary estimates are  not yet complete, but when completed  they will show votes for new school-  houses in Princeton and Keremeos as  well as a lock-up for Keremeos.  The vote which most interests the  people of Hedley is the appropriation  for completion of the wagon road up  Twenty-mile. The Burr settlement  road improvement will come out of  the district vote.  In view of the inevitable high water  the government did well to increase  the bridge contingent vote, and this is  a fund that Similkameen may require  to draw on, particularly in connection  with the West Fork.road, where some  bridge legacies are none too certain  of survival.

Macdonald, leader of  the Opposition, acquainted the House.  with the objections of himself and his  colleagues in a, speech which was weak  and self-contradictory.. In one breath  he assured the House that he was  warmly in favor of a, provincial university ; in the next he asserted that  British Columbia had no need of such  an institution at present, that the time  was not ripe, that the province was  too young.  Premier McBride handled the member for Rossland severely, especially in  reference to the hitter's claim that the  measure for a university was premature. The new provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta .were already passing  legislation with a view to.setting.apart  lands for purposes of university endowment, and, if the time was ripe  enough for them to do so, it was surely  ripe enough for British Columbia, a  province ten times their age. Mr. McBride further remarked that the leader  of the Opposition had failed to produce,  one sound argument in favor of postponing this important legislation.  In regard to the part of the province  in which the proposed land assistance  would be selected, the Premier stated  that, while the precise locality had not  yet been decided upon, he could inform  the House that they would be chosen  from the northern and interior portions of the province. Every care  would be taken that the method of selection should be such as not in any  way to interfere with the mineral or  other development of any section of  the province.  Stuart Henderson (Ashcroft) treated  the House to one of his comic flights  of oratory. He regarded the whole  measure as an underhand one, cover-  ins- a project for a gigantic steal on  the part of the 'government. He denounced the entire question of a university being endowed by the province,  observing that the Scottish universities were almost entirely supported by  the students'fees.

The jury in the Thaw case disagreed  Seven were for murder in the first degree; two were for acquittal, and one  for insanity. Under these, circumstances, the chances for Thaw doing  much rooting at ball games this summer are rather slim.  Absolutely authentic information is  to hand that the V. V. <fc E. tracklayer reached the boundary line on  Wednesday evening the 10th inst, and  Customs officer D. G. McCurdy was  sent for, so as to effect clearance. Mr.  McCurdy was on hand before six  o'clock on Thursday morning, and attended to the necessary business, after  which the work train crossed the line  at 6:15 a. m. Thursday 11th.  The track-layers claim to be laying  about a mile of steel per day. A large  quantity of steel rails which are of AI-  goma manufacture are being unloaded  on this side of the line. The steel gang  numbers about fifty men, and they expect to reach the bridge at Armstrong's  (allowing for unlooked for delays) in 8  days' time or by the evening of the  18th, and they express their intention  of proceeding with all possible dispatch  until Keremeos is reached.  The ballasting gang are keeping the  track ballasted close after the steel,  and the fence gang .������.re at, work between Oioville and NighthaAvk.  It is understood that R. Gardom of  Midway is to take charge of the Customs office and bonding warehouse at  Chepaco station.  The coast dailies in a short summary,  of the debate on the 11th refer to   the  speech made by L. W. Shatford, M. P.  P.    The Province says:,  ���������  Then the voice of Similkameen   was  heard in reply to both.    After congratulating  the  Speaker and the mover  and seconder, of the. address  in   reply-  to. the  speech  from   the  throne,   Mr.  Shatford added a tribute to tlie Minister of Finance   and   the. government'  for the wise administration of the province and its finances.  "We have successive surpluses now  instead of deficits, deficits of previous  Governments, which frequently  reached $400,000."  The Government had fulfilled its  promise, and has reduced taxation,  and would, as soon as conditions  would justify,-.-.still, fiuther reduce  it. The Opposition was appealing for  more relief for the farmer.  "Why, if the Government were to  introduce a measure entirely relieving  the former of taxation, the Opposition  would oppose it. They would then ask  for a bonus for the farmer."  Speaking in favor of irrigation, the  member added :  "If the Premier will call a summer  session, I will promise an exhibit here  of the finest peaches in the world, and  enough to go all round; and we can  grow -more than peaches. Similkameen has thousands of acres of the  finest fruit lands in the world."  Reverting to fiscal affairs, Mr. Shatford startled the Chancellor of the Exchequer with this suggestion:  ?'I would appeal for a change of the  fiscal year from the end of June as it  is at present, to the end of April." His  reason was that this would facilitate  both the carrying out of works and  the financing of them.  Then Mr. Shatford surprised the  whole house, with a "personal matter"  to which he had intended to refer at  the opening of the session, "but Mr.  Macdonald was not then present."  Similkameen then assumed a more  defiant attitude and added:  "I wish how to reply to a statement  which, I have on good authority, was  made by the leader of the Opposition  during the sampaign when that honorable member spoke in Similkameen.  He made the statement that I had  shirked a vote upon the Columbia  and Western Land Grant Bill of last  session by making up a story that my  father was ill in California, and that I  had paired with another member and  shirked my vote. I am surprised that  the leader of the Opposition would  make such a- statement���������a statement  absolutely without foundation. But  my constituents hare resented it by  returning me with an increased majority."  Mr. H. S. Reed, who has been superintendent of the crushing and concentrating plants in the Daly Reduction  Co's stamp mill, has resigned on account of ill-health, and Arthur Clare  has been arpointed to succeed him. A  re-arrangement of the duties makes E.  A. Holbrook general superintendent  of plant from lower works to the tipple, including shops, assay office, power  house etc., with personal charge of the  cyanide plant; Mr. G. P. Jones, mine  superintendent, is in charge from the  tipple to and including the mines', and  Mr. Clare is in direct charge of stamp  mill from tipple to and including van-  ners. Mi. Reed was popular with the  staff and employees and took keen interest in his work, and his friends regret that he is leaving.  Special correspondence from the legislature arrived too late for this issue. THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   APRIL   18,    1907.  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

Avlmer from his position I  as inspector-general   of  the   Canadian  troop.-,   and  the appointment  in  his  stead of Col. Vidal, brings to mind the  definition of  the  name   "Liberal"  as  applied   to   a.   political   party,    which  ���������stated--that-'-they-were   liberal   with  other people's money   while very careful with their own.    Lord Aylmer had  always lived a. clean, sane  life,   and  is  to-day in the possession of good health  and full vigor of manhood and in every  way capable of  discharging the duties  of his  office.     His  successor,   on  the.  other hand,   is a  physical wreck who  has just returned from sick leave,  and  is senior to   Lord Aylmer.     Had Col.  Vidal been retired before., he would get  a  pension   of  $2,400  per annum,   bub  after his appointment:-to the office held  by Lord Aylmer his retiring allowance  will be $4,200 per annum.    Although a  strong   Liberal during the whole Conservative   regime   from  1S7S  to   1S96,  Lord Aylmer,   then known as Lieut. -  Col.   Matthew Aylmer,   the   brigade-  major of   No.  1  military district  at  London,  Out.,  was very popular with  'all the Conservative officers of the district,  and   when  his  office,  was done  away with and the  duties  taken over  by the  brigade staff of the permanent  corps, it was the Conservative officers  of No. 1. district who got busy and used  everv  influence!  they could   bring  to  bear to have his worth and ability recognized by having him transferred to  the Adjutant-general's staff at Ottawa.  There  it   was  that  the   accession   to  power of   Liberals  found him in   1S90,  and   speedy promotion   followed until  he occupied the  highest military rank  the subject,   for  the   only   condition  under which his support can be counted   on,   is   in   case   the   government  should for any reason  feel -disposed, to  hesitate before pledging the credit of  the piovince to any scheme   which   is  likely to call for, large, expenditure of  monev.    In such   contingency  Stuart  Henderson would most likely develop  into an ardent advocate of irrigation,  but now that the government has taken the first step his ingenuity is  more  likely to   be   directed   in   discovering  reasons for opposing.    The appropriation  of $5000  towards  defraying ex  penses of an expert commission on the  subject was evidence that the government is not going  to  rush   into  anything blindly,  and   when   the  subject-  comes up for consideration  of details  the members will be supplied with information  which   will   not only  convince them of the   benefits  to  be  derived from a comprehensive irrigation  i scheme, but will  be  enabled  to  legis-  ! late intelligently and effectively.

Meritorious  Measures for the   Preservation of the Public Health  in    Hedley.  LIKE THE PROPHET ELI.  (Toronto Telegram.)  The weakness of Sir Wilfrid Laurier  is leading his government to moral  disaster. While his own hands may  be clean and his own life untouched  by even the whisper of scandal, yet  a,t the same tim". Sir Wilfrid- Laurier  has headed a government that has become a by-word and a reproach on account of the get-rich-quick tendencies  and other failings of its worst members. The conscience of this country  was being outraged by stories as to-  the doings of some of its public men at  Ottawa. The situation did not exactly illustrate the truth of the words:  and office in the gift of  the  Canadian  government.    The only defence which  the  government   have  to offer is that  no  injustice   has   been   done   to   Lord  Aylmer,   inasmuch as his  enforced retirement   during    vigorous   manhood  carries  with  it the annual pension allowance of $-1,200.    To lay on the shell'  a man of Col. Aylmer's   temperament  and   vigor when   there are yet many  years of good hard work in him,  is an  injustice  to the  man ;   and to add to  this, the substitution of a man of Col.  ���������Vidal's physical condition that he may  become an  increased  charge upon the  country to the extent of an additional  $1,800 per year, is not only an injustice  to  the  country but a fraud upon it.  There is no comparison   between  Col.  Aylmer and Col. Vidal, as field officers  in   No.   1   military   district   of   some  twelve years ago very well know ;  for  if in 1895, Avhen  Col. Vidal had taken  over from Col. Aylmer the duties of  brigade major and was then in appar-  " Be chaste as ice, pure as snow,  Yet shalt thou not 'scape calumny."  Calumny never touches many of the  public men at Ottawa. The heroes of  persistent stories of spoils and strate-  gems may be men who should be  touched. The weakness of Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been in a failure to  require members of his government to  avoid not merely evil, but the appearance of evil.  The Premier of Canada cuts a poor  figure in the proceedings. A premier  has every right to require his ministers  to pursue wealth and pleasure without  bringing scandal upon his government.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has shown a high  example of personal integrity and private conduct. So did the Prophet Eli.  Example is not enough. It is charged  that some of the ministers of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's political household have  been "vile and he restrained them  not." Such a charge suggests that the  fault of Laurier is the sin of Eli and  every other weak, well-meaning trfler  with the solemn realities of public life.  Public life, even in Canada, has its  solemn realities. Cynical smartness is  not always tlie idol which Canadians  ignorantly worship. The tragedy of  H. Ii. Emmerson is pitiful. There  may be other tragedies. Let them  come. The tragedy of individual suffering in the fires of publicity is not  the worst of tragedies. The most deplorable tragedy in a country's history is the slow, sure assassination of  a nation's conscience, with the. theory  that the realm of politics is free- from  the restraints that bind men to honesty, that bind men to decency, in  private, life.  The tragedy at Ottawa, has reached  its inevitable climax. Canada owes a  great debt to Henri .Bourassa, assuredly, and even to G.W. Fowler, M. P.,  for the good that has conic out of the  evil that he spoke, Canada in this  crisis has owed little to Sir Wilfrid  Laurier. To-day Canada owes the  Premier still less for his support of  the technicality that utilized a trick of  parliamentary law to silence Henri  Bourassa.  One of the benefits of a resident constable, is already being felt in the general clean-up of premises which he is  causing to. be made. Back yards  strewn with tin cans are neither sightly nor healthy, and if it should seem a  trifle inconvenient to be made to go to  this trouble now there is the reflection  that it is the proper way to avoid the  danger of an outbreak of fever later  on, and the loss of life attendant upon  such visitations. Some carcases that  were likely to prove serious nuisances  have disappeared. Among them was  the old white horse- that died of starvation and neglect out on the Pinto  flat. In all cases where the owners of  these dead animals were known they  were held responsible for the removal.  The crusade is timely and sensible, and  those who look at things in the right-  light will not be disposed to blame  him or consider the action harsh or  arbitrary, but will commend it.  Another problem that the people, of  Hedley will soon be up against is that  of closets, and the care of them. The  place being new and the soil open and  gravelly little annoyance or danger |  has yet arisen, but it is only a, matter  of time until it will have to be dealt  with in a proper way, by having a regular scavenger appointed and steps  taken to prevent or minimize danger  by compelling all to conform to measures necessary for public safety.  Until the town shows that its residents possess sufficient public spirit  and enterprise to secure concerted action, it is fortunate to have a constable  who has enough diligence and backbone to take the initiative even in  the. smallest way.

The Hedley Lumber Co, are asking  bids for collecting logs how in the  river between here and Keremeos.  It is currently reported that Mr.  Milliken got word on Tuesday to disband his party of surveyors and that  they were all leaving.  The new G. P. R. steamer, the Okanagan was to have been launched on  Tuesday and make her trial trip clown  the lake yesterday. ������     ,  Mrs. Rotherham left by Rover's  stage on Saturday "morning for Oro-  yille en route for Nelson .'; where she,  will visit her friends for a month or  two.,'  Henry Bahrs is well pleased with  the. progress being made by the contractors on the. Oregon. He intended  going to Loomisthis week but deferred  the trip.  Win. Bragg who has been in charge  at the ore bins at the head of the gravity tram for the past 18 months went  out cm Sunday by private rig with his  family,  eh route to Montana.  Dr. Higginbotham, dentist, will be  in Hedley from the first to the 4th of  May inclusive; Those requiring work  done before, he goes hack to the coast  will do well to make their arrangements early.  Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Loonier, left on  Monday morning for Prince Albert,  Saskatchewan. Generid regret is expressed in town at their departure, as  they were good citizens and had won  the regard of all. ,  A temporary clam was thrown ac-  cross the river above the saw mill  which enabled them to float the logs  down into the slough to be convenient  for sawing. A boom is being placed  in position to capture the logs farther  The arc light in the mill yard at the  Daly Reduction Company's works has  been noticed to penetrate to a very  great distance, for it strikes so brightly on some of the houses on Kingston  avenue that a deep shadow is cast from  any objects intervening. One of those  lights placed in the centre of the town  would be. almost sufficient to light the  whole place.  Percy Watson is putting in faithful  practice with the Victoria ball-players  arid will endeavor to'make good for a  position on the Victoria team this season. If the Victoria ball-players are  all prepared to put up as good play for  the season as Percy does, they will  have, a pretty likely bunch of ball-  tossers.  A new record in rifle shooting has  been established. The illustrated London News tells of a feat that has been  accomplished in British Guiana by  Sergeant Major Manly, formerly of  the R. M. L. I., but now of the British  Gamma police. "He made 49 out of a  possible 50 at 500 yds. rapid fire at a, 5  inch bullseye, under Bisley conditions.  This means that the ten shots on score  have to be fired in 70 seconds, and of  his ten shots he made nine bullseyes  and one inner." This beats Hedley  shooting all to pieces.  The      water-mains   suffered    from  frost.   Some broken  valves have been  i located, and more will likely   be discovered before the system is in  order.  Of the two valves at the.   corner of  Scott Avenue and White Street, which  was the furthest point  up  the  street  that the water reached when  turned  on,  the one on the west side of tlie  main was found to   be   out  of order  while the one on the east side  was all  right.     There  is  also trouble on  the  branch on Haynes Street west of the  main, and that is likely tho cause of  the weaker pressure up Scott Avenue.  The present manager of the Daly  Reduction   Co.   is   strong   on   detail,  which is a very good fault, for much  is to   be gained   by looking closely  after both the little and  big things.  Ever since the ice let go around the  works there, has been constant testing  to detect weak spots,  and everything  animate or inanimate that is found unequal to the duty required,  becomes  an apt candidate for the hell-box,  or  whatever other place they call it a-  round a. mining plant.   Among  many  other things the fire hose had an overhauling last week, being stretched out  and pressure turned on, when  several  breaks were found.  Dr. Higginbotham, went to Princeton cm Friday last to remain for a  week or so. He expects to spend a.  short while in Hedley again before returning to the coast.  Richter's townsite at .

GOING AGAIN FULL BLAST  Stamps Began Dropping A Week Ago--  Compressor and Tramways A  Few Days Later.  I  PROPERTY  The sound of the stamps is again  heard in Medley. On Thursday morning of last week the stamps of several  of the batteries in the Daly Reduction  Co's mill, were dropping, the amount  of water determining the number.  As the water gained, more batteries  were set in motion until all were going,  although for occasional short intervals  some, had to ho hung'lip again when-,  ever a temporary checking up of the ;  water occurred. This week the large  compressor is going and the electric-  railway ii]) on tin,- hill has resinned ore  haulage, while the gravity tram has  been in operation for several days.  The pretty ������������������ thorough over-hauling  which tlie mill received during the  shut-down,is showing in the smoother  Avorking and more efficient service.  The new automatic sampler is doing-  its work in good shape and the small  experimental Pierce .amalgamator is  being.given a fair test to see whether  it will make good.  The flume does not appear to have  sull'ered at all from the ice, there being-  no rending apparent. 'It seems tighter  than over but���������-this is doubtless due to  till! repairs put on if during the past  few weeks. The foundation in places  is becoming .more precarious all the  time and sagging is likely to he a, factor which will impair efficiency and  prevent tho flume doing its full duty,  but on the whole, if the water was  available, it would perhaps deliver a  bigger head of water to the penstocks  than ever it did'before.  Is  A  Safe  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.

HEDLEY is the "chief town on the route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway ; and with the advent of this road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...

For Those Who Invest Now.  ==PnTchase a few Lets before the Railway Comes~~~~~  PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  Continued from I'ago One  At this point, Hon. IT. E. Young  .arose and mildly inquired; if the member for Yale wished the House to understand that he-was in favor of a  university in British Columbia to be  maintained by students' fees ?  Mr. Macdonald's amendment for-a  six months' hoist was defeated on a  straight party vote of 22 to 14, the  three Socialists supporting the Opposition, The bill then passed its second  reading.  The committee proceedings were remarkable for a lengthy string of frivolous amendments introduced by Mr.  Hawthornthwaite���������and voted down  one. after another���������and for a curious  and unexpected revolt in the Liberal  ranks. Mr. Chas. Monro (Chilliwack)  arose and administered a strong rebuke to Mr. Hawthornthwaite. He  announced his intention of supporting  the bill. He was followed in the same  strain by Mr. Hall (Nelson) and John  .Tardine (Esquhnalt). The incident has  more than a passing significance,- the  cc'miplete subservience of Mr. J. A.  Macdonald to Mr. Hawthornthwaite  being extremely distasteful to a number of the. gentlemen on the Liberal  side of the House.  On Wednesday Mr. McBride formally announced to the House his intention of immediate departure for England in order to lay the important  subject of Better Terms before, the  Imperial Government. The announcement was received with enthusiastic  cheers by the Conservatives, while the  Liberal benches sat iu gloomy silence.  Up to the last they have hoped against  hope, and their papers have abetted  the fond delusion that Premier Mc-  Ih-ide's intention to " lay the question  at the foot of the Throne" was an  empty threat. Now they find that the  man who defied their leader at Ottawa  is going to face him at the. very headquarters of the Umpire itself, and they  feel unhappy about it.
