Carl Halrslne  |y\/*r'W>'W>'rW/W>'W'  The Easter Shoot Didn't Materialize for  a Cup or Medal Competition.  The shooting match which the Hedley Rifle Association decided holding  at Easter, went by default so far as  competition for cup or medal is concerned, owing to the fact that the  necessary number of ten competitors  didn't put in an appearance, for some  time ago it was decided that there  must be at least ten competitors iu all  matches at which the cup or medal  were shot for. \  Nevertheless there was a shoot, but  it only amounted to a practice match.  Six members of the Association shot,  hut  the   scores   were   all   low.     The  morning was hot, and although bright,  the light was peculiar, and  the. heat  i rays ascending from the ground proved  troublesome,  especially" at the. longer  ranges  at which   the  prone  position  was used.  The Association started out with a  | good strong membership list and most  of- them  active   members   who   were  ready to take part iu the shooting at i  the various matches, but the turn-over  of affairs in connection with the Daly  Reduction Company, which at one fell  swoop cutout marksmen like Pieknrd,  Brown, Reid and Powell, was a hard  blow to   the   Association.     Nor  was  this all, for the cutting down of the  force   on   outside   improvements  dispensed with the services of quite a few  carpenters, and among these the Association also lost   valuable shooting  members  in Forbes,   McFadden   and  Bruce.  Nevertheless there is too  tendency on the part of the survivors  to lose interest at a time when the  necessity is all the greater to retain it.  It is therefore hoped that hereafter  every member will make it a personal  matter and resolve that no matter  who may fail to show up, he, at all  events, will not allow the fault of  "no competition" to lie at his door,  and whenever a match is arranged  will be on hand promptly to take part  in the competition.  Some, of course, have better rifles  than others, and those who feel themselves handicapped with an inferior  arm are apt to get discouraged. That,  however, will he obviated when the  service rifles are obtained from the  Militia 'Department and all will have  to use them, thus placing all on an  even footing.  The Gazette's report of the splendid  strike on the Hummingbird group,  upon which prospecting by diamond  drill is now proceeding, is fully confirmed.  The drilling is being done by the  Spokane Diamond Drill Co. for J. J,  Marks, the principal ir.vuer. and everyone is delighted with the success  which has attended this first attempt  at locating the ore body which was  generally believed to be there.  For a few weeks after operations  with the drill commenced they wore  working under difficulties because of  the broken character of the ground  that caused it to cave in -and thus impede the progress. So great wan the  difficulty experienced in this way that  it became ivecssery to V.)\ the hole  with cement and drill through it until  they got into solider ground, after  which better progress wa's made.  A.t a depth of 1(51 feet the first ore-  hodv was encountered and they have  been practically in ore all the way  since then. ..When Mr. Marks was  down on Monday they:had been drilling in solid ore and were down to a  depth .of 237 feet, the ore at this point  being strongly mineralized with  arsenppyrito. Occasionally since the  ore was first struck small bands of  quai-tzite and also of lime were encountered, which looks well for a self-  fluxing smelting proposition  It was the intention to make this a.  800 foot hole, but from the way in  which it is turning out they may extend it to 400.feet. It is the intention  to do 2000 feet in all, so that with the  excellent result obtained in this first  hole and the advantage to accrue from  the knowledge thus gained, it is reasonable to assume that when the full  2000 feet liave been completed enough  will be learned to show that not onlv  By every rule of logic the. Princeton  Star's article of last week can be construed in no other way than as an admission that its paragraph of January  27th was a dishonest paragraph published with intent to deceive the public, for it has refused to take the negative to that proposition.  There is nothing contained in the  Star of Fehruary 17th ��������� to arhitrate  upon. To prove this we dare the Star  to reproduce its statement of the question at issue in its Feb. 17th number  and also to reproduce alongside of it  the second and third paragraphs of  the Gazette's article of Feb. 22nd in  reply thereto.  Fearing that the Star will refuse to  do so, we. give them here :  GOOD FOR M.I  Mr. Rodgers Knows a Good  Thing When He Sees It, ���������  and  THAT IS IN Ii. C.

(Gazette, Feb. 22.)  "The Gazette is not  d ispu ting* the fact  that the amount of  money orders paid sit  1/hc,Princeton post  ofliee -is more than  that paid at either  Fairview or Hedley.  if said so before ever  the Star said it, by  being the first to compile those figures from  the Postmaster General's report and publishing them. It docs  contend, h owe vor,  that, those figures are  meaningless in so fat-  as indicating tlio vol-, .  ume of business done I capitalists  in the town is concerned, and -yot that  is the meaning the  Star intended to convey when it published this dishonest paragraph."  good  Chief Justice Hunter is. a  enough arbitrator for us. The Gazette  knows no better, and tlie Gazette's  money is ready any time the Star  wants to come to time on the only  question which the Gazette has held  at issue in'this controversy.

There are eight claims in the group,  the Hummingbird fraction, Lookout  fraction, Triangle fraction. Mother  Lode, Mountain View, Sriowflake,  Gold Man and .Forty-Nine. D. Leggatt  owns an interest.in the Mother Lode,  Harry Rose, an interest in the Gold  Man and F. Leonard (when drilling  is completed) an interest in the Mountain View.  It is understood also that an interest  in all goes to tiie Spokane Diamond  Drill Co. for the. wt.rk Which they are  doing.

The citizens  have responded in  good shape and a  $60 outfit is expected this week from  the coast.   The club has already one  victory to its credit, having downed a  team   composed   of   Great  Northern  surveyors.    The railway men had a  brand new outfit from Spokane which,  was used for the match, but Princeton  had to do all their practice for. it with  an  improvised outfit, using for a bat  "the handle of a can't-hook."   Fred  wouldn't say whether this meant the  tail of a mooly cow or not, but all the  same, like the kid who gets a string of  fish   with   home-made   rig while  the  fancy rod and   reel   man   goes   fish-  hungry, Princeton got there.

There was a  fair attendance and a moderate a-  mount of enthusiasm was shown.  '15. D. Boeing occupied the chair, and  Percv Watson acted as secretary.  The meeting decided to organize as  the Hedley Baseball Club, after which  a membership roll was prepared and  duly signed by those present. The  following were, then elected officers  for the season:  President. Frank McArthur,  Secretary, J. Percy Watson,  Captain, Eddie Mott,  Man. Com., .I.C.R.Cootes, F.Bragg  and C. Henderson, together with the  other officers.  The club have lost a tower of strength  in the removal of W. P. Rodgers,  but there is still good material left and  all that is needed is faithful practice  to get them into shape to give a good  account of themselves. Regular practice will be begun on Sunday afternoon, when all interested are expected  to be present.  The Victoria Colonist publishes  the following interview with M. K.  Rodgers :  "M. K. Rodgers, the man who developed the. famous 'Nickel Plate mine  in Hedley camp, Similkameen district,  from the grassroots, and pl-iced if in  the ranks of the permanent producers  of yellow metal, to add thousands to  the coffers of the.

"The figure was between four and one-  half and five millions of dollars. To  be exact now doesn't matter," he continued. "You c-ee, tlu-y not only declined the offer, but said they, would  not sell for twice the bum," and the  erstwhile manager of the Yale Mining  Com iiuiv laughed good naturedlv as  ���������his thoughts went back to(a certain  day on Wall Street when the Rockefeller interests turned his offer down.  "What are your plans now ?," ventured the newsgafherer, "To, stay in  British Columbia, and find, another  mine.

(SintilkumecuStar)  Editor Stah���������-Sir:   I   trust that  I  maybe allowed through your columns  to contradict a statement made in the  Star recently regarding Mr. Shatford's  connection with the Fight-Hour Smelter  Bill.     Your correspondent stated  that Mr. Shatford left his seat in the  Assembly when  the  bell   rang  for a  vote on the measure.    This statement,  however, is absolutely wrong as Mr.  Shatford had not been on the1. Assembly floor for some  time  previous  to  this vote being taken.    I may say that  I  was with  Mr. Shatford  .while   this  debate wss going on and eonsequentlv  I know I am staling farsts.    Your remarks would indicate that Mr. Shatford is opposed to an  S-hour day   in  smelters, but it is well known that Mr.  Shatford voted for this mt-asure.  during the session of 1905 and the present  amicable    arrangement   between  the  smelter management and the employee  is largely due to the   stand   taken  by  Mr. Shatford and some   of   the  other  members at that time,  Yours truly.

THE SIMILKAMEEN ASKS IT  This portion  of Yale-Cariboo  should see that some  effort is  put forth to draw the notice of  the representative of the riding  to -the   importance   of having  justice done  to   the    Similka*  meen in the matter of attention  from the   Geological" Survey.  The manner in which  this district has heen neglected is a  disgrace to the Administration  at Ottawa, a disgrace to the re-  presentative And a disgrace to  the Geological Survey   itself.  Year after year  the Geological  Survey has been represented in  the Kootenays and yet  W.  A.  GaliiherM. P. was able last year  to secure the services of R. W.  Brock and his assistants for the  whole season hi the A'elson District. Idossiand District has been"  worked over almost foot by foot  and reports  published.      Mr.  Brock also  spent  one   or two  seasons in the Boundary.    But  the Similkameen has been completely ignored by the  Department ever  since the  examination made by the late Dr George  Dawson and  published- in   his  report for 1877-8.    In  that examination and the report issued  in which Nickel Plate. Mountain  is referred to as  ': the striped  mountain "'   and     Twenty-Mile  Greek as  " the large brook," it  is seen that the unerring eye of  " the little Doctor " caught the  great possibilities of the vicinity  as a  most promising field for  mining development.    But fancy a district  like   this,  left all  t lic-'c  years    unnoticed   by  the  Department, alter so encourag-  a report by the Prince of  them  tiii, at a "period   so remote   that  not  even    Twenty-Mile    Creek  had a name and had to be  designated in   his  report  as  "the  large brook " !  i i;i'tJi'l nnatcly    for  and especially for the  The annual appropriations for  the   Geological  Survey should  be trebled.    It is not a lack of  men that hampers the work so  much as lack of money  to  pay  jthem.     Every spring our  min-  jing schools and universities set  ' free scores of students who have  i to look for employment during  I the summer months.     Many of  'ithetn    drift    into    the   mining  camps.    They have to do something to earn  their  bread .and  if possible get a   few   dollars  ahead to help them through the  next session.      As a rule ...they  take the first job that offers and  as a result spend the whole summer doing some laborer out, of  a job of mucking.   Now. it would  be much better, for these young  fellows themselves and  better  for  the  country  if  they  were  sent out into the hills under the  supervision of competent field  geologists.    For this work they  should receive at least as much  as the   mucker   is   paid    and  should be made  to  work  hard  enough to earn it.    In this way  the country gets the benefit,  at  muckers' wages, of what technical knowledge these students  have received  in  the , schools,  and by  having  all their work  carefully supervised'by the geologist in charge' of the  narty j cixty days after  I i!ii- m "i     ������ "     W   apply to the Chief O  Who CtUl be held responsible for   aiui Works fwpcrinissin  the work, all danger to be feared  from amaturism. .will be obviated. A new Director of the Survey, Mr. A. P. Lowe has been  appointed, and it is hoped that  lie will press'for a much greater  appropriation.  Invariably when mining men  come in, here the first thing  they ask for is 'map and geological report of the camp, Several times the Gazette has been  asked for. these and' had nothing to show except Dr. Daw-  sou's report' of "1877-8, received  from the Dr. himself. many  years ago.  It is now up to Duncan Ross j  M. P. for YalerCariboo to see  that this portion of his riding  gets a square deal in this matter. The "Kootenays. .and the  Boundary have had more than  their share. There is here several seasons' work for a party  from the Geological Survey under the direction of a competent  field geologist and we want  them.

Wright, of Princeton,  spent Easter in Hedley, the. guest 'of  her brother, Dr. Whillans.  Rev. L. Thomas w;is in'Vernon' last  week attendingn church meeting.    He  ���������returned in time to take bis service,on  Sunday last.  The dance at the Hotel Similkameen on Monday night was enjoyed  by those present. A very pleasant  time was spent.  Mrs. Wright of Spokane c-.une in on  Saturday to join her husband who is  in charge of drilling operations for the  Diamond Drill Co. on the Humming  bird.  Mr. Roche left on Wednesday morning for Tonopah, Nevada. Mr. Roche's  friends were sorry to see him go, but  he has mariv hi-yu tillicmns down in  Tonopah.  Mr. Louis S.   Noble   of   Denver   returned on Monday from Copper Mountain where he spent a week  or more  ��������� examining properties.  Mr. L. W. Shatford, M.P.P. left on  Tuesday, with his father and mother  for their home in Hubbard's Cove,  N. S. He expects to return in about  three or four weeks.  H. H.  Messenger   is  rocoivi  con  gratulations find also extending- some  courtesies. It is a boy; and tho cigars  as well as some prime California port  and sherry are on the new hoy.  Mr. A. E. Baldwin in charge of the  Great Northern survey party at Princeton came down on Sunday and on  Monday morning went down to Brushy  Bottom.  James Wise, Avho has been working  for some time in the Nickel Plate,  came down from the mine on Saturday with his wife and child. They  left oil Monday's stage for the coast.  i On Tuesday Francois, an Indian,  near Olalla, fell off a load of wood,  going down a hill and had his leg broken. Dr. McEwen was summoned  -and left, immediately to attend the  case.  Mr. Roberts who has-been in the  employ of the Daly Reduction Co. in  the store up at the mine, is leaving for  Victoria on Friday morning. Mr. Roberts was justly popular about the  mine, and Mr. White who is in charge  of the store speaks highly of his efficiency.  One of Rolls' setters bit Wesley  Lyon on Thursday last and a. demand  being made to have the dog killed,  Mr. Rolls had him despatched without  x the trouble and expense of a hearing  of the case. The dog had been cranky  in disposition and had previously bitten others.  The new side-walk has been completed on the-East side of Scott Avenue  to a point near the Hedley Meat Market where there is a crossing over to  the west side-walk. This has made a  wonderful improvement in the appearance of Scott Avenue and will be found  of great service to residents on the  East side.  Royer's stage came through on Saturday night, having on board six passengers among whom were Mrs. O'Connor  who came to join her husband who is  . -working with the Spokane Drilling  ' Co., P. Heldstab and- four others.  Thev were too late in reaching Keremeos to catch the Penticton stage, and  -were thus obliged   to   come   through.  On Friday last a party of Great Northern engineers who havo been working at Princeton came down to do  some special revision work on the  Company's lines on this side of the  river and are camped at present at  Brushy Bottom It is understood that  they have several weeks' work ahead  of them.  Good Friday was a. particularly mild  day and was for the most part observed as a holiday. All the available!  horses were in use for riding or driving,  while others chose other methods of  enjoying the day. A litll" paity held  a pic-nic down on Smeller fiat below  Rodgers' new house overlooking the  river and report having hail a good  "time.  Pete Heldstab endeavored to support for a. brief spell the honor of being a benedict. When he arrived off  the stage on Saturday night some of  his friends seeing a lady along concluded that Pete had left single blessedness behind. They wort; beginning to  congratulate him, even promising to  organize a. charivari in his honor forthwith, all of which. Pete was ready to  accept. The lady's husband whom she  had come to meet, appeared on the  scene at that juncture and Pete's matrimonial stock went below par again.  H. W.' Yates went out on Friday  morning's stage, en rente to the eoast.  He gave up possession of the Commercial Hotel on Thursday and expressed satisfaction at being clear of  the worries and care of a business that  was not congenial to him.  On Sunday as Mr. and Mrs. Ed.  Nelson, Fred Irwin and others were  taking a walk .up Twenty Mile Creek  they saw a mountain sheep, a magnificent specimen of the "bighorn,"  quite close to them; and as he bounded  up the steep, rocky sides of the canyon, turning every once in a while to  look at them.  Duncan Woods returned to Hedley  on Thursday's stage. He spent the  greater part of the winter on the,  coast, but is more convinced than ever  that the climate in this part of the  province is the best to he had anywhere in or out of B. C. He has made  full arrangements for placing on the  market his townsite property at Trout  Creek, whore real estate is active and  the times prosperous.  Pete Helstab returned on Saturday  night from Spokane, where he says  that Hedley is becoming better known  and is now eliciting considerable inquiry which is likely to bring a considerable amount of capital this way.  He spent the greater part of the winter at Mendove, Wash., but was in,  Spokane immediately before coining  here. At Midway he reports crowded  hotels and difficulty in securing bedroom accommodation.  ^������*eSS6C-*.6feSSSess-.S-'&:S-:S-:SS--^ ! j������#S������5������BiSO������������������8e������C������������80������CCO������C������^^  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  ib  iO  Hi  Hi  Hi  m  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  id  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  ���������������.

A Pleasant Outing and Game of Bridge  On Saturday last a. party from Hedley drove down to Keremeos where  they played a match game of bridge  whist with a team there, The party  consisted of Misses Lamont, Ford and  Hardie and Messrs. McHaffie, Gladden  and Roche. The game, was played at  the Hotel Keremeos, the players for  Hedley being Miss Ford and Messrs,  McHaffie, Gladden and Roche and for  Keremeos, Mrs. Lowe Miss Lowe and  Messrs. Turner and Slattery. While  the Hedley players were successful in  winning the match they say that  their opponents played a strong skilful game and gave them a, hard contest.  On Sunday they went down the line  of the Great Northern for a considerable distance and report that a great  deal of the grade had been completed.  | HOTEL  f HEDLEY  w        K  ������r  *C  a.

AVHEN   ANSWERING   ADVERTISERS,    MENTION   THE   GAZETTE J THE HEDLEY GAZETTE,   APRIL   19,    1900.  THE NEW TRANSCONTINENTAL  Eastern. Papers  Not   Necessarily ''Antagonistic.  THE ROAD IS A NECESSITY  PROP  A  Good,  Safe   Inye  ent  To  Keep  Pace With  Development ��������� A j  Bright Future for  Canadian  Northwest and British Columbia.  The   "Montreal  Star, (Conservative)  referring to Hill's invasion, says:  "The invasion of Canadian territory  i    by   .lames  J.   Hill's   railway  system,  concerning   which   many  conjectures  and   rumors, have been   rife for some  ye;rr:-:, lias begun in earnest.    According to lines now  under construction,  rnu.ie.s   surveyed  and   projects under  consideration,'the Great Northern, in j  the near future, will'be as important]  a factor in the British possessions and]  '���������'play as important a part in their, de-l  ���������velopmeiit as it lias in the Northwest, j  .south of  the  international boundary [  line.  ������������������Mi-. 11:11, be it said,  is not satisfied  with having one transcontinental line,  but needs two, traversing expanses of  territories  over   which   two different  govmmmt.-i hold domain.    'Within a  short time  he will have an  east and  west line in tlie Canadian Northwest,  almost p.-uallel to the Great Northern  on .'. he 'United States side.    This paral-  !eli.-i!i on such a huge-scale  is something unique in railroad enterprise and  daring in conception.  What the Great  Northern has been  to  the American  side, so will it be within Canadian territory���������a   pioneer of civilization'.    To  .���������dl'mtents .-unl purpose's the "twin" line  will be ns .Canadian as the Great Northern   proper  is American.'.   But Mr.  Hill- however, knows not the lines of  cleavage  put down  by   international  boundary,lines, and he can operate a  line   across   one   country   as  he   can,  across another,    in  fact,  his field of  operation is not even limited by continent.--, as is evidenced by. the establishment of the steamship line between  the North Pacific coast and the Orient.  A dual transcontinental system is not  so remarkable���������-when Mr. Hill is back \  ��������� of tlie project.  "There is no question but that the  Canadian Northwest will develop more  rapidly than any other portion of tlie  American continent within the next  few years. Assiniboia and the adjoining territories are now growing the  splendid crops for which Minnesota,  and North Dakota were famous a few  years ago. In fact the Canadian farmers are raising bigger crops than are  the American farmers. This does not  mean that the soil south of the boundary line has become worthless, but  the farmers have not taken the care  of tlie land in the way they ought to.  Mr. Hill has been preaching to the  Minnesota and Dakota farmers that  thev are. 'selling their heritage.' and  as soon as the Great Northern line  takes him there he will undoubtedly  bo giving valuable advice to the Canadian farmers.  "Tlie. Canadian Northwest will witness within the next few years a tide  of immigration which will outrival any  similar movement on this continent.  The movement has been steadily increasing in volume each year, and it  i- hound to become heavier. There is  room for an empire there, and millions  more inhabitants. This year already  I;.--:������������������ .-:<���������:.'n a 1 eiuark.ibit- volume of col-  o;il.-is ant;  and the b  for the Canadian side. The three nor-  . ;bi.-v --the Givat Northern, the  Northern Pacific and the Soo���������have  bcii ioaded down everv Wednesday  .for liic past month, and last week the  train had to be run in two sections to  accommodate the heavy travel. People  are desirous of moving out to the  Canadian Northwest faster than the  railways can take them, and a're settling miles away from railway tracks.  "With these conditions existing, it j  is imperative that the Great Northern  enter into the Canadian Northwest  and help in its development and settling, as it did twenty years ago in the  big prairies south of the boundary line.  "What was said about Mr. Hill at a  banquet given in his honor recently,  in connection with his relation to the  development of the Northwest, might  well be repeated as to the. effect the  entrance of the Great Northern will  have: in the Canadian Northwest.  ���������'in a nutshell, the plans of Mr.  Hill contemplate the construction of a  line from Vancouver, B. C, to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Part of the route  has been decided on, but as yet the  course through the territories of Alberta and Assiniboia, is a. matter for  future determination.

'  "Besides the surveying parties which  the Great Northern has looking out  for possible, routes, active construction'  work is progressing at several points  to make the invasion into Canada as  quickly and energetically as possible.  The Great Northern has now about  five hundred miles of lines under construction, and the plans call for approximately 1,800 miles. There are  between 8,000 and 4,000 men at work  building lines now. As soon as the  wen ther gets more favorable thousands  more will be put to work, so that by!  the warm months the present force |  will probably be doubled. j  To make good bread you  must have good flour.
