' The dip of the dike is taking it  out of the shaft and consequently a  greater portion of the shaft is in ore,  which appears to be s getting -more  heavily mineralized all the time.  A marked evidence "of the. improvement may be seen from the fact that  some of the miners are applying for  stock in lieu of cash for their wages.  Men who' work in a property day by-  day and are thus able to see tlie way  in which the ore body is behaving are  in a much better position to judge intelligently of'the merits of a mining  stock than those who'are living at a  distance. The Golden Zone has the  ear-marks- of- a winner and that  accounts for the miners' showing a  inclination to get in on it.'  SERIOUS ACCIDENT  H.

C, April 15.���������Last Sunday-was the second since-the law closing all bars took effect. The law was  carried out to the letter; not an infraction of the law was' a ttempted at  any of the fifteen hotels, notwithstanding the fact that Saturday was  payday at the mines, and. some $50,.  000 was moving through miner's  hands.  There was a time, when gambling  was a popular pastime in Phoenix;  this has been permanently stamped  oirt, and now the sale of liquor is being curtailed. At a meeting of the  city council to-night a bylaw requiring all hotels to have thirty rooms for  the accommodation of. guests, or pay  an extra! licence fee of $3,00, will receive its first reading. .*...'  "This will practically  mean that 50  I per cent: of the saloons in the city will  go out of. business this summer. At  present only three of the fiftee'n'hotels  have, the required number of rooms.  The present city council is carrying  in to effect several drastic-measures' towards moral reform,   '������������������"   -  On Sunday morning last H.  Zibler,  shoemaker,    met with a serious   accident   that   may   tax   his    reserve  strength to its  fullest extent to  pull  him through at his advanced age of  73 years.   After breakfast   he started  out albnefor his usual Sunday morning  stroll going out across Pinto flat.   -He  evidently intended taking his walk up  tlie   Princeton   road,   and  as many  others   'have   done,  followed an  old  trail which leads down a steep  bank  this   side of Whillans' ranch.     The  trail down the bank may have  been  safe enough at one time, but since the  grade for the  wagon  road down   the  hill cut across it, a sharp tin n is made  in it to angle down the bank at a   run  in order to reach the road.   It appears  that a stone which he stepped  on  to  check his pace down the declivity gave  away with him and precipitated him  down the bank on to the   road  where  he lay for an hour or so before being  found, and while  lying there had got  chilled,' for. he was in the shade of the  bank where the morning or forenoon  sun couldn't reach hiih.  While there was no-marked evidence  of it Dr. Whillans feared at first that  it"bone was broken in the hip. The  old gentleman has been in Hedley .for  about a year and is well-liked by all  who knew him. It is hoped thatVhis  injuries may not he as bad, as they  were at first thought to be, and that  he .may make a speedy recovery.  Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition adopt  a Color Restful to the Eye.  JOE MARTIN THE MAN  His  Candidature   in Stratford-on-A von  Definitely Announced.  Seattle, Washington, April 18.��������� Because nowhere on the grounds is there  the glare of whitei only the soft,  mellow tone of old ivory,.the Alaska-  Yukon-Pacific Exposition which opens  in Seattle on June 1st, has come to : be  known generally throughout the  Northwest as the "Ivory City."  .���������Chicago had its "White City" and a  magnificient sight it was, but blurred  vision and bursting headaches were  the price of gazing too long upon it.  Every other exposition since the Columbian Fair has made white its'color,  with the same painful results. Probably the A. Y. P. would have made  the same mistake, had it not been for  the fact that many of its structures  were constructed of reinforced concrete and pressed brick. The brick in  which all of these permanent buildings  are finished are of the tint of old ivory  and, sinceeverythingat thefair is otherwise in accord, it would not have done  to have finished the many plaster staff  structures in white. ,  Recently every building on the  grounds was given its final coat of  color and.the practically completed  exposition city presents a beautiful  picture. The old ivory blends perfectly with the natural background of fir-  forest, into which the exposition is  builded and one 'may wander the  length and breadth of the grounds on  the brightest day, without a thought  of smoked glasses.  CANADA'S CROWNING GLORY  BURRELL CORRECTS HIM  Fruit Superintendent Taken to Task for  Incorrect Statement.  Ottawa. April If.���������At the meeting  of.the agricultural committee of the  commons this '.morning' Mr Martin.  Burrell objected to a statement voiced  by Mr. McNeill, superintendent of'the  fruit division department, that Americans were better- packer's of fruit than  Canadians. <  Mr. Burrell said it was in the interests of American shippers to say this  legal ding .Canadians, but it was not  the case. He complained that America n fruit was coming "into this "country, particularly into the praiiie provinces, which.was not marked according to the demands of t'hd Fruit Marks  act. Ho wanted the same stringent laws  imposed upon Canadians' to he lived  up to by thcgroweis on the other  side. '' '  Mr. McNeill said he hoped to see  the act strictly -enforced, and also  stated that during the yeai there had  been a general .improvement in the  quality and" packing of fruit. He  spoke approvingly of the work done  by the co-operative societies, their  organization in many oa-cs resulting  in a better observance of the law-, respecting packing.  A A. F. & A.

One of the sure signs of the journalistic neophyte is the use of terms and  phrases that are either meaningless or  inapplicable, and this is an instance of  it.    Now what is the issue-here?;  Can  the Press state what it   is,  or  is supposed to be, for up to the present not-  even a. Pinker ton  detective .could  de-  ciper it from all the hysterical jabber-,  ing that the Press has given utterance  to f r-onr the time its editor first plumed  himself  to  the  Saturday Sunset    as  being   the only  avowed   journalistic  prohibitionist���������the     one     and    only  press champion  of "local  option" in  the.    country.      And    yet    this  poor-  weathercock solemnly   asserts in   the  midst of last week's dose of drivel that  "The Press has no desire to force local  option upon any community."  Utterly incapable of reasoning he  will ask the silliest questions and from  no apparent data arrive at the most  asinine conclusions; as for example,  where he intimated that the Saturday  Sunset and Keremeos Chronicle had  been caught in some imaginary trap  by the agreement of the Government  to submit a plebiscite when neithor  one of them said a word against a plebiscite, hut on the contrary had advocated it.

How  Penny-a-Liners   Impose  Public.  on   the  Every once in a while paragraphs  are bobbing up in the papers concerning all manner of subjects, and the  most extravagant fancies at times are  given to the public, but the field of  science usually furnishes the most  prolific crop of them. Sometimes it is  the re-discovery of a process for tempering copper; arid at other times it is  the transmutation of silver into gold.  Whether these things will ever be  brought about no one can say, but the  teachings of science would point to  the contrary. Of course it is true  that a few centuries ago many   things |  were believed to be elements that  were later on discovered to be compounds, and it is not many years ago  that newer and rarer elements were  evolved from some of the older ones  that had been unquestioned by great  scientists like Humboldt, Huxley, and  Tyndall, while even the greatMendele-  jelf's law was violated by man who  went Nature one or two better by  making such compounds as calcium,  carbide and carborundum.  These fake science paragraphs about ���������  wonderful discoveries are manufactured by penny-a-liners who cater to  the itching ear which is always open  for something new. Readers have the  right to either believe these things or  reject them.  There is another kind of paragraph,  however, that the permy-a -linersprings  on an all too credulous public for  which it is.harder to forgive him.  That is the dishing up of stuff as new,  which is old enough to have passed  into the chestnut'state, but being  dressed up in different garb.the public  swallow them as the latest out.  It is not only the penny-a-uner who  start these chestnuts out on another  trip, but in many cases the ignorant  sleepy journalist who has failed to  keep abreast of the times is responsible for not a few, and a common field  for his operations nowaday is the  realm of wireless telegraphy.  With great solemnity the other* day  the Vancouver Province published  what it called a nevy record in wireless  made from a station in Cape Breton  to the Eiffel tower in Paris a distance  of 300(1 miles. Now it is several years  ago since. Dr. Lee DeForest of the  United Wireless Telegraph Co. communicated by wireless between the  Manhattan beach station and Glen-  gariff, Ireland, a distance of 3(i(XJ miles  without a station in Ireland at all.  He had a kite with a wire 300 ft long  attached and two men catching hands,  one man holding the kite wire and the  other the wireless receiver from which  the message was taken.  San Francisco papers told a short  time ago of the government station at  Russian Hill, California, put in by the  United Wireless Company picking up  messages that were fiying around  Japan a distance of 5700 miles.  Now how is this for another old  chestnut which appeared last week in  most of out British Columbia dailies :  "Paris, April 12.���������Naval lieutenants  Collin and Jeance, the inventors of a  wireless telephone apparatus with  which they succeeded last fall in  communicating with Dieppe from Paris, today introduced a'new and greatly improved apparatus. The minister  of -marine exchanged conversations  with the operater at Melun, a distance of 30 miles and he declared that  the result was a vast improvement-  over that obtained by the ordinary-  telephone. The sound*was clearer and.  purer. Irr December-, 190S, despatches  from Berlin declared that Waldemar  Pulsen had succeeded in telephoning  without wires from a suburb of Berlin  to Lyngby near Copenhagen, a dis-  of 250 miles."

The incident was the cause  if a very  stormy night  in  the  house last week.   The report of  the New Brunswick commission  censures Pugsley in very severe  tern is. and while  the house  of  Com; 1 ions was in no way bound  to a-rept the  report as  infallible       to deal summarily, with  Mr.      'ugsley    solely     on   the  stre:    'h of it, yet it seems  an  extr     rdiriary   action    on   the  pari       Sir Wilfrid, to  attempt  to s<    ": thorough investigation  into   ,-<-i   matter as  he  has  so  frequently done in similar cases  thereby strengthening the   im-  Apr  The following- are the; readings showing temperature, etc., for the week  ending Apr. 17 :  AT THE  MINE.

Grand Forks appears to be the first  in the field for 24th of May celebration. The Volunteer Fire Brigade Of  that town have charge of the celebration  and announce a  programme of  foot  horse-races,      broncho-busting,  races,  firemen's  races,    baseball   and  football matches, etc.  Keremeos has live real 'estate men'  in Messrs McTavish, Lawrence and  McDoniild who are making a big success in bringing in buyers. They,  have a, choice property to handle in  the old- Price estate: and they are  about the only ones that are making  any stir in bringing people in.  On Sundaj' everring there was a little  blaze down at the old Dago camp by  the mouth of Twenty-mile. The camp  was deserted and all the. tents taken  away, but the frame work of the old  cookhouse, was standing, and this  seemed to have an attraction for some  vandal who'had evidently fired it out  of pure wantonness.  . Under ordinary conditions we would  be looking for high water this spring  owing to the late season, which encourages the belief that when.the  water starts to flow it will go with a  rush. The dam up on Twenty Mile  Lake will prevent the creek from ever-  getting very high and the river is too  far below us to over do any damage to  the town.  A. H. Kellett, superintendent of  coristHictron for 'Stewart &' Weldh-  was in town last-week on a-fcrip-ofr.  inspection over the camps operating  between here and Princeton. .Some  seem to think that his Visit gave some  indication of a probability of work  being opened rrp beyond Princeton at  an early date, or at least as soon as  the rails reach Hedley.  J. H. Bromley, was in town on  Saturdiiy last with his stallion "Black  Prince" which is a handsome beast  and had many admirers. The horse is  across between Shire aiid Percheron,  and was purchased by Mr. Bromley at  Abbotsford last fall. The animal is a  trifle thin at present having been fed  nothing but hay all winter yet he  weighed 1875 lbs which shows that  when he is fat lie will go about 2000  lbs.  This has certainly been a backward  spring as evidenced by the low water  in the river and creeks. While the  roads around Hedley have been dry  and dusty for about six weeks or more  winter still holds the  mountain tops.  . Golf is the1 newest'gariie to be added  to the list of Hedley diversion's. Links  tiave been laid out on Pinto flat and  practice is held several titties', each  week. Messrs MacHanie and Hincks  of the bank staff are th'6 first to obtain  outfits and it is expected that * several  others will join'the ranks of the golfers  foi; the season's play. The start is  made on the bench where, the road  goes up to the flat. It zig-zags across  the flat to the foot of the mountain  above the schoolhouse and keeps along  the foot of the,mountain to the old  base-ball grounds, from there its  course strikes southward past the  butts on the'rifle range to a point down  near the' V"-l V. & >E. sta'tion: and' it  winds.irp on the rievy base-ball grounds,  making a 'total "distance covered on  the links of about a mile' and a half.  It looks like a game that would'suit  'tlie'OkVchaps -;rs:well as ' the yolinger  ones.and is likely to become popular.  There is ho word yet concerning the  conrrnencement   of   track-laying,   although-those   who are'supposed   to  know most about it admit tlutt it may  begin-any day, and point to"aL:possibility of the first crossing of the Similkameen being'made beforie high water.  There was  another yarn brought to  to.wrr last week, given on the strength  of a G. N. R. conductor,.who is mostly  employed    on    construction,   to the  .effect that nothing would be done until after high water, because the G.N.R.  had ouly   one track-layer that duty  had been paid oh, and could work on  this side of the line', and that said cosmopolitan track-layer, duly equipped  with passport, was now working in Alberta on a stunt that would last for  :two months yet.   Really this  is   getting funny.    A while ago we were told  that no track-laying could be done before May loth unless  the Great Northern   could   borrow   an   old   cmgine  somewhere, and now the   duty   on  a  triick-layer  looms   up  like' a  gaunt  spectre athwart our path.  ���������'��������� It. J. O'Sullivan, who has been with  ���������Mittm ISs'������������������CM Of tlie Scientific American  for thirty years was in town last week  introducing Americana, the great  work of reference being brought out  by,that institution. The British rights  for.-Aiiiiericanai 'have been purchased  by Harmsworth who are having it reset and re-printed so as to conform to  British spelling and British currency  as well as to satisfy a. recent requirement of the British copyright law for  protection of British printers and publishers, and the- reading public of  Great Britain. This fact in itself, as  well as the fact that the Scientific  American is behind the work is evidence of its excellence. Mr. O'Sullivan  has traversed the Canadiarr field very  thoroughly, spending some four years  in doing so, and incidentally has become air enthusiast for Canada, and  her prospects. In fact it would be- a  good thing for some Canadians to  catch a little of his enthusiastic faith  and optimism.

Then the orthodox treatment is  to turn around and. kick the animal  and keep on applying the leather  while the cur continues to snarl or  show its teeth.  But what s'la'i-U-d iiill tlie row? We  were all (if us (liseu-^ing the .������������������gil.-ition  for1 local option, some pro and some  coii. the Press very much pro. and no  personalities were indulged in. In our  issue of March 18th the Gazette tersely and accurately summarized the  shifty position of the Press in the  following paragraph:  "Not long ago  the'. Pentieton Press  barked boastfully of its sole   advocacy  of local  option.     Two   weeks ago  it  accepted    the  proposed   plebiscite   as  being quite the proper caper, but last  week it broke out  again  in  a savage  growl which  indicated  some  fear on  its part that-its   local  option  shank-  bone was in  danger of  being stolen.  Mr. McBride was given   a vicious  jab  for     supporting    Hawthornthwaite's  motion for a  royal commission., of inquiry into the working of the Gothenburg system, an action   in   which   the  ���������'     Press fancies it sees some glaring  in  consistency  altogether    incompatible  with the idea of a plebiscite.    But the  most amusing part of .-.the  whole -outbreak    is  the   lialf-savage,   balf-l:Mini  back-handed    wipe   ..administered    io  representative Shatford by slobbering  over  Price  Ellison  for Opposing   tile  Hawthornthwaite motion while Shatford supported it.'"  ���������   -���������''       . ;. .  Over this   the  Pi ess   slept   for. two  weeks   and    then    came out   with   a  savage rejoinder that hadnoarguinetit  in it and  was grossly   personal  and  altogether uncalled for.     By  way of  showing up his hypocrisy in   a. public  capacity (nothing personal) the Gazette  gave some facts   as  to   what had occurred  when  prohibitory'  legislation,  was forced on the people   before  they  were ready for it, and in doing so, very,  properly showed the position in which  magistrates were placed under* a prohibitory  law and  the  sacrifices that  would be demanded of  them.     Then  ,   we contrasted the attitude of a magistrate in Penticton.    The..man referred  to was W. J. Clement.   ! Nobody else  could  ever  be hinted   at   from   the  manner in  which  it was put.     This  man  when    asked   to  take an information against a merchant for supplying    certain   intoxicants    to   Indians  refused to do so   on   the  ground, that  said  merchant was  one  of. his ' best  customers.      The     reason    why   the  magistrate's   name  was  not given in  full at that stage was to let him down  as easy as possible; but since .he hadn't  sense enough to see it that, way and  take   advantage, of the  leniency ex-  .tended to him, let him now bear in full  the humiliation-which   his own folly  i has brought on him.    Here was a man  who in his punlic capacity as. a- newspaper publisher was  waging- war to  the   death  against  the liquor  traffic  prepared  to  wipe .it   out   root   and  branch without, even   listening for a  moment to any plea for compensation,  but would in another public capacity  of a. more serious nature,-  act in  thrs  inconsistent craven manner.  To friends of Mr. Shatford he denies  that he had any thought of censure  for.the member for Similkameen in  the paragraph in which he attacked  Premier McBride for voting for  Hawthornthwaite's motion to appoint  a. commission to inquire into the Gothenburg system, and praised Price  i Ellison for voting against it. Well,  the member for Similkameen also  voted for the Gothenburg commission,  and if Premier McBride is,guilty so is  he. Where, is the consistency in tliis,  and what is the explanation? If the  editor of the Press will answer this  truthfully he will give the same reply  as the magistrate gave for irot wanting to take the. information against  the merchant.  Now if he was wiongly accused in  this matter why doesn't he deny it?  There might be some explanation he  could offer���������some little palliation. It  might have been, for instance, that  the man who wanted to lay the information misunderstood him and he  might not have absolutely refused, but  might have said that he would prefer  not take it for reasons already alleged,  but would do so if he insisted on it  and nobody else would take it. But  there is no denial, no explanation,  just a. brazen demand for the magistrate's name which demand was  alto-  ������������������v*:'5-^l  When you can get a good lot on the best residential streets  at from $200 to $250 on easy terms of payment.  ��������� )^-:-'-y.^^-^������^:^:J::  "' '��������� ���������'&'���������������������������%kW&W������.tii*V-'���������  Jr.-**1"-*.,... --,'-i.J>vv,  ���������';���������.  ���������      H;      :* ;.\i . !-'*/-��������� Y.J: i  "������������������f '���������    -\.   ������������������: ������������������'  K'Mt  #  Now, during the quiet months, you might be building a  small house for yourself without much outlay.

Now the United Wireless Telegraph  Co. holds the patent for the wireless  telephone on this continent, and as  early as May, 1907,-they had wireless  telephone installed on battleships in  the TJ\, S. navy. . In -June, 1908, when  the fieet reached Seattle there were no  less/that 28 sets of 'the! wireless telephone in operation in it and as early  as May, 1908, the company had perfected its wireless telephone to the  extent that it was., working-satisfactorily tip to 200 miles.
