Of course the Uni ted Wireless  which is strongly intrenched on   the  coast,   having . its factory at;!' Seattle  with    numerous    land   stations    and  ocean going craft equipped, ' is installing a ppara.tus on 'more  boats nil  the  time, including,   tugs  and freighters,  but the three we refer to as being best,  known    among the  most recent   installations are the   Princess TVIay, Empress    of China and J. J.  Hill's  big  liner Minnesota.     Now  the G. P. R.  made ah  agreement with  the United  Wireless Co.!to instal their system on  all the C. P. R. company's Pacific fleet,  but it was found out that there   was a,  lusty canine in the-manger   so far as  the  Empresses Avere  concerned    and  that canine was  the  Marconi  system  which   owes, all  the  advancement it  has ever made to the- fostering care of  the British   admiralty.     The C. P. R.  Empresses  have  always  carried    am  imperial    subsidy    and   are   on    the  British   naval  reserve,  and  hence   it  was the Admiralty which had the say  what system   was  to  be  installed  on  them and  consequently  the  Empress  of China got the Marconi  equipment,  almost   filling  up  her  wireless  room  with apparatus.    Well, she started oPl  for Asia and  from   the  hour she. left  the Gulf of Georgia behind her,   never  a   squawk  was  heard'from  her any  more than if she had never had any  equipment.  Now take the other C. P. R. boat  the Princess May which runs from  Vancouver to Skagway. She was  equipped with United Wireless apparatus, being given one. of. the small  power equipments as she was doing a  coasting trade and would never be far  from a land station,' but when she" left  for Skagway with her new equipment  on board and operator McClennghan  at the key she "'sassed back" for 300  miles, being in communication with  Vancouver for all of that distance,  and when she was opposite Wrangel  she was in communication with the  Eureka land station in California, a  distance of 1500 miles and also with  boats in the mouth of the Columbia  river.  Then take the Minnesoto which was  given the United Wireless equipment.  When she left for the Orient after  getting the wireless she was in communication with the Pacific coast of  America for 2200-miles, and picked up  cominuunieation with Japan again  when within 22U0 miles. It is fully  believed from this performance of the  Minnesota that at night when the  wireless waves travel farther and are  heard more distinctly, the Minnesota  will be able to communicate from the  Orient to the western coast of America.  In    connection    with    the  Princess  May's equipment also, it is   given  out  that the experience of the  Ma}'  bears  out reports of other wireless equipped  boats that the government station   at  Cape Lazo should he. shifted to some  other point as its present location does  not seem favorable for communication  by wireless with passing   ships.     The  Princess May's wireless operator is   of  opinion   that  in   addition   to  moving  the Cape Lnzo station to a more favorable    location    some    more    stations  should be put in.    And when the government is at it they should allow the  United Wireless to put in a thoroughly efficient system which the company  will ,guarantee at all times   instead   of  buying   from  them   the old straight  Shoemaker   instruments  with  which  the stations at  Point   Grey,   Estevan  Cape La/.o   and   Pair hen a  Point  were  equipped.       While   United     Wireless  will    supply    the   Shoemaker   instruments for those who want them,  they  can supply far   better  and   more   efficient working apparatus.  Hurricane Swept Across ^Province From  St. Clair to St. Lawrence  On Aprjl 8th. a, hurricane crossed  into Ontario from Michigan sweeping  eastward carrying death and destruction in its path.  Several lives,were lost and damage  done to the extent of.,about half a  million dollars.  -Win. Tunks', farmer, near London,  was killed by a ^falling tree, and a  Hamilton man is reported to have  been drowned. From every quarter  comes . news of barns and summer  cottages partly or wholly wrecked by  the:violent wind. At Chatham there  was a loss of $10,000, , a ncl at Til bin y  the-hurricane wrecked fifty derricks.  ���������;,: In Canboro, near Durmville, teach ���������  er and pupils had to make their escape  through the-w.in.dows of aschoolhouse,  the complete, destruction of which  soon followed.  At Hamilton, John .Tainieson, aged  twenty-two a well known local -amateur wrestler and football player, is  missing, and is believ.ed,,to have been  drowned. The roads leading- to this  city are impassible front uprooted  trees and telegraph post*. At Toronto  a number of costly summer 'cottages  on Hanlon's island have been destroyed.

Toronto, April 8.���������Eai'-l Grey and  Sir Mortimer' Clark were denounced  by Rev. W. B. Findlay at the.meeting  of'the .Town to Presbytery yesterday  for patronizing the .Woodbine race  meet. The moderator.requested Rev.  Mr. Findlay to bring the matter before the chair formally in a resolution.  This was done, and after a- heated discussion the resolution was laid over  until the next meeting.   o. ������������������   A RAILWAY ENTENTE  The Canadian  Northern  and Great  Northern Believed to Co-operate.  .Judge Grant, of Vancouver gave a.  man 2 years for stealing articles from  an .iiflj-ni vi lage. it doesn't pay to  monkey  w.th   poor   Lo's   belongings.  At intervals for severalmonths past  there have been rumors in the papers  that the Canadian Northern and  Great Northern had formed ah- offensive and defensive alliance, particularly in reference to raihvay building, and that it was not improbable  that in some places they would be  running over the same tracks to save  unnecessary outlay in building.  Winnipeg   papers   evidently    give  every credence to the report and they  point out   that   wherever Hill  builds  into the Canadian   west he  is  not in  opposition to the Canadian  Northern.  The    part  of  the   story,    however,  which concerns   us   most  here  is   the  portion    which    refers  to   the   great  probability that a part of the V.V.&E.  between here and the coast will  be  a  joint road   maintained and    used  by  the two   systems.     That will  bo  the  portion    between   Aspen   Grove    and  Hope or   perhaps  from   Aspen Grove  all  the  way   into  Vancouver.     It  is  generally understood   that  the  route  down the Coquihalla to Hope will   entail some very expensive   construction  and  as   the  Canadian   Northern    are  also seeking a route to  the   coast  and  want to come down the North Thompson to Kamloops it would certainly be  to the interests of both   roads   to  join  in a common route   down   the  Coquihalla.     An    agreement  of  this   kind  entered   into  now  might  hasten  the  completion of  the  V  V. & E.   to  the  coast.  Keremeos Centre.     ,.  The hall has recently been completed, and is one of the finest if riot  the finest public hall in the valley.  The building is 50 x 60 feet with a  stage 20 x ,40 feet to permit of putting  on almost any play or performance  that may come through. 0 For a ballroom it is particularly',well adapted  and thoroughtly safe, being: on the  ground floor. The flooring is of specially selected material and thoroughly,  'seasoned and is pronounced by those  skilled in the terpsichorean art to he  one of the finest they have been on.  The hall was handsomely and tastefully decorated. This part of the ar-j  rarrgeinents was, carried, out under  tlie directions of Mrs. Richter, and the  result attained showed the rare skill  and taste brought to bear in the task,  for the room was transformed into a  Veritable bower of beauty.  Fully 150 guests were present. The  music war supplied by a dance orchestra from Oroville which discoursed excellent music. With.a beautifully .dedicated ball-room, a floor in excellent  condition a hit good music, it only-remained for the supper to take rank  with the other features of the occasion,  and Mr. and Mrs. Elmhn>t of the  Central Hotel saw to it that this was  fully up to the mark. Rarely have  ball-goers in the Similkanieen had  the opportunity of partaking of so fine  a spread. '  Those wlio attended from Hedley  are unanimous in expression of the  good time which they had. It is unfortunate that more Hedleyites- who  attend dances did not go down. At  the last dance held in Hedley, Keremeos turned out to the number of  some forty or' fifty, arid more effort  should have been'put forth to return  the compliment.

It has been understood that: M.  Iv. Rodgers has held a.n option on the  ���������property for some time, a.nd last year  be made a pretty thorough examination and sampling of' it during the  summer, returning later in the year  for a. two davs' examination in corri'  pany witlrWalter Bean..  Whether this be a fin til examination  under Mr.'Rodgers' option or whether  it be by way of '-appraisement  of present value of the .mine required in the  action pending in   the  courts  of  this  province between tlie.  Daly estate and  Mr. Rodgers to decide amount due Mr.  Rodgers on liis  interest in   the property,  is an  opeii  question.     To  Mr.  Rodgers belongs the credit   of spying  'out the property for-them in   the first  place, getting after the ore bodies and  showing ��������� up  their extent and   value  and then putting in a plant which put  the'property- on ��������� a- paying  basis,  for  with practically no change it has now  run a little over four years and turned  out over two million dollars in bullion.  , . There are at presen t five in the party  who are making the examination, and  they are in charge of Walter JBenn  of  Denver    and    A.   G.   Merrill,   of Los  Angeles,    although    it  is  understood  that their number will shortly be  increased.    Where   a large, .sum   is  involved    the   examination    has  to  be  more thorough.  The sampling we presume will be  confined to the two or three claims already opened up, 'but bad Mr. Rodgers  been in charge during the whole  period that the mine has been running  arid had carte blanche it is more than  likely that there would to-day have  been other Nickel Plates and Sunny-  sides disgorging pay ore in the large  group of 24 claims gathered in by Mr.  Rodgers for the company in the earlier stages of his operations here and  held ever since without effort to open  them up.  IT SOUNDS FAMILIAR  Brandon, April (i.���������W. A. Lang of  Pi-'achhind, B. C, formerly of Brandon  is here to-day. returning from a trip to  Ottawa where he has been for a month  pressing for suppoit from the government for a big cold storage system for  fruit. He proposes in establish plants  at about ten points in B. ('.  Lang says the fruit production of  the Okanagan district alone within  fiuir years will be over six thousand  I cars   a. season.  The Sally mine has been working all  winter and occassional ore shipments  made.  Much interest centres in operations  on the Bell Avhere.a. tunnel is being  driven to tap the ore body. The Bell  has always been considered a- very  valuable claim.  A new strike has been made on the  Rambler owned J. W. Nelson, of  Greenwood, and W. H. Rambo. This  is one of the most extensively developed claims of the camp outside the  Sally. There has been done in shaft-  work about 140 feet of sinking and  over 500 feet of tunnelling. The latest  strike is a vein S inches wide running  500 ounces of silver.   ������   French newspaper correspondents  score Teddy Roosevelt whom they  say "is absorbed iu himself, has his  : cabinets filled with his own books ,-.nd  ��������� .iitlered with photographs of himself  j and family : talk-- about hini-v!f and  j manifests a desire to preach. '  "Messrs. A. Stewart, assistant,chief  engineer, Seattle, and C. A. Dominion, chief signal officer, St. Paul, of  the Great-Northern Raihvay, respectively, are guests at the Hotel Vancouver. Their mission here is to inspect the lines of the V. V. <te E.  railway in the vicinity of this city  and in the lower Fraser district. They  have been advised that construction  of the eastern link of the line from  Keremeos in the Similkameen westward over the Hope mountains to  the completed section ao Somas will  be rushed with all possible speed this  snmnier." The foregoing is from the  Province. Let us see: where and  when have we heard something like  that before? Oh yes. it was about  three or four years ago.

'  J  t-heit both tlie Grand Trunk and  O.P.R. were'carrying citizens of  United States through -Canada  sit tlie rate of two cents per  'mile and Canadians Avho sat beside them in the same 'first-class  cars had to"pay three cents per  mile.  ������g���������<^y������TTH W-"TI II IH.'V ff I 'i i ��������� H W  PITH���������'V1  The reported  resignation   of  Pugsley   as Minister .of Public  Works,   which  the  Premier  is  said   to  have  demanded   from  him, is hailed hy those on   both  sides  of the  House,  who    are  anxious to see   cleaner government, as evidence that Sir  Wilfrid wants to clean up  and  get  rid of an element in his administration which has  discredited  it for so long.      If he  has now  really put, his hand to the';plow'  in this manner it is hoped there  will  be  no  turning  back,  and  every encouragement should be  given him to keep right on.    In  Pugsley's case  the  adverse  report from Kew  Brunswick, in  connection   with  that  railway  scandal seems  to  have  caught  Laurier at an  opportune  time.  There is very little doubt  that  some of the better-minded of his  followers felt keen  disappointment at the Premier's   attitude  towards  Judge  Doherty's   motion for a-   thorough  investigation into all the departments of  the  government,   and   possibly  THEIR   DAY NEARLY GONE  EDITORIAL    COMMENTS  The public meeting held in  Vancouver hist week to back  up the resolution of the Vancouver Board- of Trade on Canada's duty in the matter of immediate contribution toAArards  maintenances of the British  navy, showed that in Vancouver  there is no party polities in the  thing at all, for prominent men  on both sides were present giving their support to the movement. This is as it should be.  for the question is altogether  too serious to be made a political foot-ball, and if all other  cities and toAvns Avould folloAV  VancoiiA'er's example in this  respect, parliamentarians would  not dare to obstruct or thwart  the Avishes of the people.  Billy Maclean's  battle  for  a  tAvo cent fare on Canadian railways   has  been  making great  progress during the past year.  The  test  case  which he fought  out with  the  Grand  Trunk  to  make  them  carry  out one  of  the conditions of their  original  charter to transport third-class  passengers    between    Toronto  and Montreal at a penny a mile  Avas the thin end of the  Avedge  by which   he is  heaving them.  This session he   brought up  in  the house an instance  to  show  that the Grand Trunk   are  not  complying gracefully  with  the  decision    of   the  court    which  compelled them to maintain the  two cent rate.     There  is  only  one train a day on  which  they  run a third-class  car and  if a  passenger  with    a    third-class  ticket  gets  on  any other train  they put him off; and to  humiliate those who insist on their  right to ride at 2  cent  a  mile  they have the car in Avhich they  must  ride offensively    labelled  "third class".    Maclean calls  on  the  public  to  aid  him  in  the  light by buying the   tAvo cent a  mile ticket and he says  that   if  any considerable percentage   of  the public   Avill   buy  the 2 cent  ticket   the raihvay will have   to  provide proper cars for them to  ride in.    Furthermore   he  said  they had given  him  to   understand that they  were  dissatisfied that such a motion  should  hare been voted down ; and for  the adverse report on Pugsley's  connection   with-   the   -raihvay  scandal to come at that particular time it is no wonder' that  the Premier should lose patience  with the   persistent wrong-doings of his minister.    What the  public   would  like  to    believe,  however,   is   that   Laurier    in  asking for Pugsley'sresignation  has done so in conformity  with  some settled policy for cleaning  up    and  not as  the  result  of  sudden pique in  a   moment of  anger  Avhen  his  patience  was  tried beyond  the  limit.     Thus  far Sir Wilfrid has managed  to  keep his own skirts clean and if  he    would  only refrain   from  engineering such votes  as  that  Avhich     boAvled      out     Judge  Doherty's  motion,   the    public  would be readier to applaud an  action like the  decapitation  of  Pugsley.  Provincial Autonomy  Relieves Mounted  Police of Much of their Work  The first vote taken up .was for  three-quarters of a. million dollars to  defray the cost of the up-keep of  the Royal Northwest Mounted Police.  Tho premier explained that the force!  now consists of seven ��������� hundred men,  five hundred in the provinces of Al-  herta and Saskatchewan, one hundred  in the Yukon and one.hundred in the  unorganized territories. He spoke  in high praise of the police, saying  that they render- particularly valuable  service in connection with the Avork of  settling up new districts.  Mr. Foster wanted to know if if; was  the policy of the government.to. withdraw the meihbers of the fon:e from  thickly settled districts with the idea  in view that ultimately the day will  come-when the provinces'will have to  look after the administration of law  and order themselves.'������������������-",  ...Sir Wilfrid said that was the policy  of. the government, but it was thought  necessary to keep a considera.ble force  along the boundary line. In view of  the heavy- rush .of -immigration.'it  would be some time 'before it would  lie possible, to withdraw the police  from the two pr-airie provinces.  0. A. Magrath spoke regretfully  that in the older districts little was  seen of the familiar police. Still he  approved of the policy laid down by  the prime minister and supported l'1('  vote,    which  went  through   without  9 '        ���������  further discussion.  73 Years in Business.

What with stock-holders in United  Wireless and the shippers, boatmen  and public that use it, the clientile on  tlie Pacific Coast has become so large  that a special magazine called the  Pacific Aerogram has been launched  in Seattle, devoted to their interests.

Any Hedley  shareholder may see a copy by calling  at this office.  Sam Long was brought up last  week by constable Sproule -under the  Vagrancy Act. Ribbed up by a few  who should haye known hotter than  to lavish sympathy upon an individual who has lived as he has lived,  he decided to contest the case. His  own evidence, however, was sufficient  to show him up and at- tlie same time  lot a little daylight into the conduct  of others who were thus repaid for  their advice to him to light it. Because of the brazenness displayed he  was given the extent of the law,  ,%)f) and costs and get out of  town   or  ASSAULT CASE  The leading excitement in town last  week   was  the assault case  between  Vander J. Rose, of the Hedley House,  and   Constable  Sproule.     The   latter  came out of the fray in  a   manner  which is calculated to show those who  were di.-posed to underrate his  ability  .to discharge, the   duties of   his ofliee,  that in future it will be well   to  leave  him alone.    The defendant in the case  had been drinking enough   to  inspire  a little Dutch courage and had foolishly listened to a few lying  busybodies,  who by way of engineering   some free  drinksfor themselves carried stories to  him that the constable   was  going  to  arrest him.    In this frame of mind  he-  went on tothestreet about 10o'clock on  Thursday nightand'came'acrossSnroule  on the   sidewalk  opposite  the  Grand  Union when  he proceeded to precipitate trouble, first with his tongue and  latterly with his fists.    At   this stage  the constable proceeded  to do  things  also, arrd without using revolver-, baton  or handcuff or even striking  with  his  fists, managed in something less   than  a minute's time to choke his  assailant  into submission and   had  him on  his  way to the lock-up. . A charge   of aggravated assault was laid as   provided  for in the statute, but by a   piece of  good luck F. W. Groves, J. P., arrived  in   town  and was requested   by the  local magistrate  to sit with  him on  the case which enabled, them  to deal  with it summarily,   under Part XVI  of the code.     Otherwise on  the evidence adduced   at the  hearing  there  would have have been no  alternative,  but to commit for  trial at  the next  court of competent jurisdiction- when  the  case  would  have  come  before  a  judge and  the punishment provided  in such a case may go as high   as  two  years imprisonment.   The   bench  imposed a fine of $100   and  costs.    They  may have erred and gone beyond their  power- iu the lightness of the fine  imposed, but as the defendant acknowledged the wrong and. gave assurances  for future conduct, and the prosecutor  cilso requested.that all possible leniency  be shown,   they, decided  to  take  the  risk of making the fine as low, as  they  did. -  Had the prosecutor taken the opposite course and claimed the full  protection due him in the discharge of  his duty, the bench would have had  no hesitation in meting out the penalty which the law provides.

Y.'-P. BUILDINGS READY.  What Distinguished Visitors say   of  Location and Arrangements.  the  Rear Admiral Roblcy D. Evans,.better known as "Fighting Bob" was a  visitor in Seattle recently, and during  his stay here was the guest of the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition officials for a trip around the fair grounds.  On the occasion of his visit he went  through the manufactures and Oregon  State buildings, in both of which exhibits are being installed. Admiral  Evans expressed his approval of the  fair in the following words:  "If one should comb all the world  he could not find a more beautiful  spot for an exposition than the site  for the Alaska Yukon Pacific Fair. 1.  have never seen anything myself to  equal it. It is a veritable jewel of a  place; and the fair will be ready, loo.  in my opinion."  "Fighting Bob" in not a man given  to many words, but his quiet remarks  about the. exposition were fully appreciated by the fair management. The  Admiral saw the Exposition Grounds  with most of the large buildings complete, and a score of the smaller ones  nearing completion. The fair grounds  will be everywhere dotted with these  smaller structures and they do much  to complete the general plan of the  grounds, and, to give the finishing  touches to the completed picture as it  has been planned by the landscape  men and the architect. Among flu-  smaller buildings now being finished  are the Dairy, Good Roads, Womeiis.  Grand Trunk Railway, Arctic Brotherhood, Masonic, Y. W. (J. A. and Hon  Hoo buildings. Then there are the  three county buildings, representing  Spokane, Chehalis and Yakima, counties, and of course dozens of shows  along the Pay Streak.  Name of Person  Bailey, Frank.

A. mining section   which   is  coming  rapidly to the   front is Sheep Creek,  in the Sal mo   district,   on  account  of  its recent discoveries of rich gold  ore.  A number of   deals  have  lately   been  put through, but an option   taken   up  last month on one property serves  as  an   illustration   that it is  unwise   to  count your chickens   before  they  are  hatched.     It   appears  that a   Sheep  Creek prospector gave a 60-day option  at a low figure on one of  his  holdings  to a party "in Nelson.    The  time limit  included    the    month    of   February,  which has only 2S   days.    His  miscalculation of the. short  month   was   his  uudei doing, as  in  the .meantime  the  prospector, in tramping  over  the  optioned ���������property uncovered a very rich  ledge of gold ore.    It   was coming  to  the close of the option period, and the  holder intended to let the deal go  by,  when the   prospector elated  possibly  with   his  find   or miscalculating'-the  short month, of February,   proceeded  to Nelson and  exhibited  his  samples.  They contained  ch 1111 ks    of gold   as  thick as a man's finger, and  naturally  their richness created a furore.     Iu   a  short time  the  holder of  the" option  heard about it, and on  examining  his  papers found he had still two   days to  take up the option, which he   promptly did, to the prospector's dismay, who  figured the time limit from  month   to  month  and  made  no allowance    for  only 2S days in February.  ?&  Nk  When you can get a good lot on the best residential streets  at from $200 to $250 on easy terms of payment.  ���������   __������  ��������� ���������  Now, during the quiet months, you might be building a  small house for yourself without much outlay.  NO MORE LOCOMOTIVE SPARKS  New York State Takes Action to  Prevent Destruction of Forests  Call in and see what we can do for you.  ������  Albany, N; Y., April 7.���������An order  ���������was issued by the Public Service Commission on Saturday requiring that  all railroads traversing the State forest-  preserves" in the Adirondacks must  use oil-consuming locomotives during  certain periods of the year.. ���������- The railroads affected are the New York  Central, operating the Mohawk 6c  Malone, Carthage & Adirondack and  New York & Ottawa, lines; the Delaware-it Hudson and the Cranberry  Lake Railroad Company., The time  fixed by the coinission is during the  months of each year from April 15th  to November 1st, between the hours  of S a. m. and 8 p. m. The order goes  into partial effect this year, and provides for the complete installation of  oil burners by April loth. 1910.  The proceedings to compel the  railroads to make this step were  brought-by the forest, fish and game  commission last summer. The hearings covered several mouths and all  practical plans of fire prevention were  considered. The cost of electrification was found to be entirely prohibitive, involving an additional expenditure of over a, million dollars a. year to  the New York Central alone.  The remedies proposed bv the railroads, such as improvements' in the  ' present locomotives, clearing the right  of way of combustible matter, patrolling and the use of a special telephone  system and fire-trains were found to  be adequate, The evidence, however,  shows that coal burning locomotives  properly equipped can be used at night  when the danger of fire is slight, and  the order provides accordingly.
