HENRY,  3010 Westminster Road,      Vancouver.  ���������On Thursday morning April 9th,  after lingering for days between life  and death in a brave fight with the  grim reaper, the end came fcJi- Mrs.  S. E. Hamilton, bririging with it untold grief for . the bereaved family.  The ailment which caused her death  was rheumatism, followed by grippe,  cnusing partial paralysis, which first  Attacked the throat and the limbs of  the left side. There was " besides a  combination of circumstances working against her recovery, the most  serious of which was a weak heart,  and but for her extraordinary vitality  and hopeful desposition which would  not give in, the end would have come  sooner. There was present at the bedside her husband and their only child,  Frances, four years old; also her father  and mother Mr. and Mrs. Giles of Sand  Point, Idaho, and her sister, Mrs.  Koebel,; of Rossland, B. C. The deceased Olga Leona Giles was born at  Cherokee, Iowa, Dec. 24th 1878, and  moved west with her parents to Washington state when'she was four yesirs  of age. She graduated from the high  school-in Portland, Oregon in 1808,  .and was prominent in W. C. T. U.  work and other public matters. Froni  1899 to 1901 sho was superintendent of  the W.<���������. T. TJ. of eastern Washington. She possessed rare .histrionic  talent, and as a public reciter had won  many medals. In November 1902 she  was married at Medical Lake to'Samuel  Eldon Hamilton, and ever since her  marriage has resided in British Columbia. Early in the spring of 1907 Mr.  Hamilton came to Hedley to work in  the Daly Reduction staiiiip liiill, and  Mrs. Hamilton and her little daughter  followed in May.  During her residence in  Hedley she  proved herself   a   devoted wife and  mother, and made warm friends.    Her  elocutionary talent was shown in Hedley on her very successful management  of the entertainment on  the evening  ql last Labor Day, when she took full  direction in putting on a play in aid of  the hospital fund that was greatly appreciated by townspeople, who looked  forward to other presentations of a  like nature, but ill-health from rheumatism  during   the early part of the  winter prevented hpr from acceeding  to the general wish  in   that respe.ct.  In February she had made fair progress towards recovery,  but early in  March she was stricken with the- ailment which caused her death.    For  the. last three weeks of her  illness her  mother, Mrs. Giles, was in attendance  upon her, although during the greater  part of that  time,   Miss  Elliott  who  had first been called at the request of  the doctor,  also, bore a share, in  the  watching,  and   was struck  with  the  kindly disposition of her patient,  who  was always most grateful for any  service performed for her .and. most considerate for those in attendance upon  her.   The funeral, which was conducted by the Rev Mr.  Cameron  of Keremeos, took place on Friday afternoon  and was largely   attended  by townspeople, many floral offerings testifying  the esteem in   which   she   was   held.  The  bereaved husband and relatives  '(Vancouver Province)  "Performance is better than promises," said Mr.  Hill  in   discussing the  Grgat Northern project for building a  line   from   Winnipeg  to   Vancouver  through Canadian territory.    "A beginning has been made.    At interme-  dicite points we have many miles of  completed   road  that  would furnish  links in the proposed route.   We have  first-class terminals at Winnipeg, aud  have   also  reached  Brandon,  in  the  wheat-growing  belt.     But  the  construction of such a road will take time.  That's why I don't like to make promises.    We did not* promise to extend  the V. V. & E.  through the Similkameen to Princeton this year, and yet  we will reach that point before Christmas.   Difficulty is being experienced  in securing the proper gradients over  the summit of the Hope Mountains to  hook up the eastern section with  the  line now building east from Cloverdale.  "Perhaps you will not believe  it,  but our engineers had to hang on by  means of ropes in  making their surveys down the valley of the Coquihalla  ���������it is a veritable box canyon.

PROGRESS ON CONSTRUCTION.  'No. 1  Camp   Makes  Another  Move  Steam Shovel Re-crosses River.  No. 1 camp has made another move  and is now located on this side of the  river at the lower end of Brushy Bottom. ' About the middle of last week  they began to move the steam shovel  and on Friday the crane and other  portions .of it had arrived at the new  location while the shovel itself was  being laboriously toted along the new  grades across the river, heading for  the point where the railway re-crosses  the Similkameen, over which a temporary bridge was almost completed,.  The cut on the new location is about  20 feet at the deepest point, and it is  not-long. When they finish this part  the next move will be. to the vicinity  of fifteen-mile.  On Brushy Bottom, J. Budd "has  completed a long stretch of grade running almost from end to end of the  bottom;  Between Fifteen-mile and Hedley  the gaps are closing up one by one,  many ;of the station men having finished their first sections.  The rock work at the saw-mill is  going on steadily. One thing that has  made it slower for them is that the  engineers compel them to use considerable of the. broken rock for fills. If  it had been simply a matter of breaking a way through the bluff, they  would have been through over a  month ago.  There will be considerable grading  across smelter flat, the stakes showing  grades all the way from 3 to 9 feet.  At Hedley the right of way has been  cleared all the way across the bottom  of Twenty-mile, and on Pinto flat the  .station grounds have been cleared off.  To complete the grading of the station  grounds a vast amount of work will  be required.   4.   DUNCAN  ROSS  GETS   PLUM  have the sympathy of all.  There is vigorous kicking along the  S. F. & N. at the discontinuance of  the Sunda-v train.  The Liber;i 1 nomination for Yale-  Cariboo which was given at Vernon  on Tuesday, went to Duncan Ross, the  sitting member. He was wise in coming from Ottawa toattend tho convention and watch his own interests, to  prevent being served as J. B. Kennedy  was in Westminster.  The Liberals of Yale-Cariboo have  certainly done themselves much more  credit than those of Westminster, for  after all there was no reason why the  convention should turn Ross down.  He has given the party aloyal support  that never for an instant wavered  during the term and no one can truthfully say that he has not~ shown ability. Huge rents in his armor there be,  but to the huskies on the other side of  the fence will belong the exploitation  of these.  Frequent references during the past  year were made in the Gazette from  time to time of progress on the Stem-  winder mine in Fairview, where during  last fall a large force was employed in  development work and getting ready  for installing new plant. In January  last, before the working force was'cut  down, for good and sufficient reasous  given in the Gazette two weeks ago, a  report was issued to shareholders from  which the following extracts were  culled by the B. C. Mining Record:  "About 1G years ago a company purchased five claims at Fairview and expended about $150,000 on them, doing  a considerable amount of development  work and erecting a, 10-stamp mill and  other machinery.   Soon afterwards the  principal owner died, and the work  was not proceeded\with.    One of these  claims is situated immediately to the  southeast of and adjoining1 our mine,  and another to the northwest;   the  veins beiug traceable right through the  claims. ��������� Our directors concluded that  the present was an opportune time to  acquire the property, and offered $10,-  OCO "in cash  and $15,000 in ordinary  stock (60,000 shares) for   the  whole  right, title and interest in the real estate, machinery, and  effects  of   the.  company, which has been accepted, it  being recognized that it was better to  have an  interest with lis,  as a going  concern, and also that while we can  open -up the claims from our present  workings, they would hav������ to expend  .several hundreds of thousands of dollars for plant and equipment to work  them themselves.  " In our repoi^ sent you October I  last, we stated that wo had run into  the main ledge in  the new vertical  shaft at about 50 feet below the ,300-ft.  level, and that it was large and good,  with free visible gold showing oh the  hanging-wall side.   Also that wejiad-  cross-cut to the main ledge on the '400-  ft. level,  where it is 12 feet wide and  showing average values of $8 per ton.  Further, that we had cross-cut to the  north ledge on the 200-ft. level, under  the fault,  and got it, and that it was  showing its usual values at that depth.  "Since then we have sunk the new  shaft to 10 feet below the 500-ft. level,  and there we ran into our south ledge,  which we never before had in depth,  although we ran a crosscut from  the  main ledge 245 feet to the south some  years ago to find it, and failed.   It is a  fairly large vein and the average values on the hanging-wall side for 4 to 5  feet are $13 to the ton  where we located it,  but until some drifting on it  is done we cannot estijnate the extent  of it.  " We ran a cross-cut 110 feet to tap  the main ledge under the fault on the  300-ft. level and found it, and it is a  magnificent  showing.      An   average  sample  taken from the hanging-wall  side for about 5 feet gives values of  $14.10 to the ton. We do not yet know  the width of the vein or the general  average value, as we have not got the  foot-wall yet.    It is) however, an unusually large ledge, and it looks better  now than when we  took  the  samples  from which the assay mentioned was  taken.   Should these high values be  maintained, of which  there  is  little  doubt, we shall be able to pay large  profits, and we. npw feel that it is simply an industrial proposition, requiring  proper management in all the working  details, and good machinery.    In our  recent purchase of hoisting engine, boilers, etc., wo have the best obtainable.  "A serious question which will soon  have to he taken up is that of power.  Wood is becoming scarcei- and dearer  all the time.   While our present water  power is  of great value for a certain  (Seattle Times.)  M. K. Rodgers, for fifteen years a  special representative of the Anaconda  Mining Company, the personal friend  of Marcus Daly, representative of the  Guggenheims in Alaska und "former  mining adviser for James J.cHill.' has  brought suit to recover a quarter interest in the Nickel Plate mine "at  Hedley, estimated to be worth more  thiin $4,000,000. An offer to sell the  mine at a $4,000,000 valuation was  tinned down by the Daly estate recently. The case will have to be fought  out befoie British courts, for the property is located on James J. Hill's new  Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railroad, now building bhrough British  Columbia. ���������*"'  Rodgers claims in his suit that he  was a mining engineer sent out by  Marcus Daly during his lifetime to find  profitable mining propositions on the  basis of ac 75 and 25 per cent, split.  Rodgers paid a quarter of his expenses  and as an illustration of his work for  Daly, he travelled 135,000 miles within  three years to find a profitable mining  venture. He travelled 36,000 miles in  Mexico alone.-  According to the Rodgers' story, the  Hedley mine was purchased by the  Daly corporation in 189S and has been  operated by the Daly crowd .and the  Daly estate ever since. A special feature of the work has been the construction of a 10,000-foot tramway, the  loqgest three-rail tram in the world,  which shows a difference of 4,000 feet  in elevation between the mine and the  lower level of distribution.  Since the mine has been shipping it  has sent $1,000,000 in* gold bullion to  the Seattle assay office and it is claimed that the company has now been put  on a pVoducing basis where an estimate  of Rodgers' shar������ figures far ubove  the $1,000,000 mark.  It is set up that the Daly estate has  attempted to settle with Rodgers on  the basis of a $2,000,000 valuation of  the mine. This settlement has been  refused by Rodgei-s. ���������'.������������������**���������  Rodgers is one of. the best known  mining engineers in this country.  CARD OF THANKS.  Mr. S..E, Hamilton and Mr. aud Mrs.  Giles desire to express their thanks to  the Rev Mr. Cameron and the people  of Hedley for their- attendance and assistance at the funeral of the late Mrs.  Hamilton, and kindness shown them  in their bereavement.  time of the year, it will be necessary  to obtain large power, and there is  ample available, and only requiring  the erection of a suitable plant. The  Southern Okanagan Land Company,  who are now arranging for the irrigation of their large estate around Fair-  view, which will require considerable  power for pumping, etc., will either  install a plant from which we could  purchase power, or work in conjunction with us in the matter.  ���������' It is likely that the 10-stamp mill,  which we get with the piachase of the  Stratheyre Mining Company's property, will be added to our present 40  stamps and will increase our output  about 30 tons per day. This can be  done at any time without stopping our  mill except to couple the driving shaft  when the addition is erected. It is a  good mill, although the stamps are  not so heavy as ours and therefore not  of so large capacity.  "We are now cross-cutting in the  mine on the 500-ft. level to the main  ledge, which should be reached dining  January; then Ave have to drift on the  ore on each level���������raise on it from one  level to another���������put in stations and  pockets in the. new shaft���������erect head-  works and install boilers and hoist-  prepare mill, cyanide plant and accessories before we can extract ore and  recover values. But all this work is  well under way and presents no serious  difficulties.  "The acquisition of the Stratheyre  properties is one of great importance,  to us and adds immensely to the value  of our mine, which has never looked  so well as it does now."

Columbians   concerned  in  'tlie   agitation.     Neither   is  there any reason  to  doubt the  accuracy   of   the   pen    picture  which he draws, or the genuineness of the conversations he reports.    Those outside the province who read this  letter  will  be apt to put us down as a community  of self-confessed   cowards and hypocrites.     And  the  worst of it   is   the. indictment  is only too true.    In fact that is  where the   shoe   pinches.    The  one saving feature in the situation is that in   so   far   as   the  domination of organizations  is:  concerned,    Canada    does   not  stand alone, and. people of. Gi-eat  Britain and the  United- States  who will consider honestly their  own   situation in   that   regard  will have to   admit   that   they,  themselves are in no position to  cast stones at us.  When  Kipling  was  here  he  jollied us   along,   tickling   our  faucv with oratory that was a  judicious mixture of salads and  confectionery���������his  own "sound  claret after  olives"���������but  withholding judgment upon the situation until  his  investigations  were completed  and   sufficient  time for reflection was given to  obtain due  perspective  for   his  word-picture.    When  here, the  only   off-hand   expression  hazarded by him, at all bearing on  the question was his oft quoted  "pump in the whites," but even  this he now modifies  or shows  to be inapplicable in the present  capricious mood of the average  British Columbian, as shown by  the attitude in certain quarters  towards the Salvation Army's  immigration movement, against  which the socialists in the local  legislature took no pains to conceal their  hostility  during  the  last session.  Altogether, Kipling's contribution, while showing us up in  no enviable light, is nevertheless wholesome in that it is a  Dawson,  to the  eastern press showing up immorality and gross irregulari-  ties in the administration of the  Yukon, has accomplished good  results already. He has compelled 'the.���������resignation--'of Girou-  ard whose career was most unsavory, and various other officials dropped out when the  searchlight was turned on them.  Mr. Pringle was wise in choosing an audience where the conscience was, more, tender than  if he had appealed to Yukon  sentiment dominated by tyrannical officials..'-' Another writer  might have made the same  charges as fearlessly and as  honestly and accomplished nothing.   It depends on the soil.  There is a little misunderstanding between King Edward and  the London Times.  ! The King's  mollifying letter to the Kaiser  in which the Times was given a  coat of yellow 'was considered  good diplomacy at the time but  it was rough on the scape-goat.  Apparently the jab rankled, for  the Times has just been getting  back at him.    The King generally spends  a   little holiday in.  France each spring that has had  good effect in promoting  cordial relations between v. the two  countries.   This year, however,  the holiday came at an inopportune time because of the premier's illness.   There was nothing  to show that the King  had any  reason to anticipate the premier's resignation at so  early a  date,  but the opportunity  for  the Times to get after him- for  neglecting his work was not to  be   missed.      It   makes   funny  reading,   that fatherly lecture  well peppered   with    sarcasm,  and yet it grated on the nerves  somewhat, for we are not used  to that.

Three  years ago. the 10th of March saw sufficient increase in Twenty Mile to run  all the machinery, and two years ago  fording the Siniilkameen was impossible after April 25th, which was considered a late spring, but high water  has ceased to have much concern for  us in Hedley, which is now doubly  protected from the fury of Twenty-  mile by the cribbing along the. bank  and the darn on Twenty mile lake.  The cribbing, by confining the creek  to its own bed, caused it to deepen its  channel over four feet in places:, and  the dam holds back the water in Twenty mile lake until the surplus water  from melting snows in the mountains  has had time to run off.  Thursday,-April-23rd, 1908,.  for the purpose of selecting a candidate to contest the forthcoming Do-:  minion Elections in* the interests of  the Liberal-Conservative Party.

WORK   ON   POLLOCK.  *%- The Lower Tunned Going- In  Rapidly-  ���������*��������� Property Improves'Say by Day.  :fo-  Already 90 feet Of the lower tunnel  started on the Martin claim of the  Pollock group has been run, and the  results thus far have been most satisfactory. The ground has been favorable to good progress being made.  This tunnel' will show the vein at  greater depth and give more backs for  ore extraction. '  The warmer weather has begun to  retard them somewhat in the length  of time necessary to clear but the  smoke after bln'sting; but this difficulty will be overcome by an up-raise to  the surface as soon as the vein is encountered.  This week, track is being laid to  enable them to use a car, as the distance to which the tunnel has advanced is too great for handling the  muck with any- degree of satisfaction  by means of  Wheel-barrows.  From this on the river will make  traffic back and forth a little more inconvenient. Since the ice went out  they have been using a boat, but occasionally the boat manages to get on  the wrong side of the river, and fording is at present neither safe nor pleasant, owing to the icy temperature of  the water., Later on, the railway  bridge which will cross the'river a little lower down wiU prove a great convenience to them. The G.-N. R: protect their bridges and trestles by decking them over with broken rock, making a-roadway'*' over which stock or  vehicles could pass provided they were  willing to incur the risk of keeping  out of way the trains.  The work in the tunnel for the next  few weeks' will take on a*keener interest especially for those who hold stock  in the. company ; and from all indications they will soon have reason to  think more highly of their stock-than  <v ;;  Is  A  Safe   Investment  And  Will  Make  feM^JhtfSHiav *s ^ie suPP*y P������hit for the Nickel Plate monn-  BKljtlil^b'J tain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  .Plate"���������the richest gokVmihe in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

Careless ot Honors.  Eastor Kneipp, the famous discoverer of the "barefoot cure," who was  appointed chamberlain by the pope,  cared little for the honor. He did not  even take the trouble to open the letter announcing the appointment and  first learned of the honor conferred upon him by the arrival of a deputation  at the Woersihofen cloister to congratulate him. He declined to be addressed, however, as "monsignore." It was  with difficulty that he was persuaded  to leave his retreat to go to Rome to  thank the pope.
