The  ore is a little over 1,800 feet from the  portal of the tunnel arid 818 feet below  the. surface of the ''Defiance claim. The  lead just struck is highly mineralized  with ore that is worth more than $100  a ton. The ore resembles, that of the  Providence mine. This strike is the  most important mining event that has  occurred in the district for years. It  proves that the high-grade ores of the  Boundary go down, and will tend to'  produce greater mining activity in the  mountains that surround Greenwood;  Final Surveys Being* Made for V.V. & E.  and C.N.R.

Tweedle, who for the past three years  has been managing director and secretary treasurer of. the company, is  handling his line of business on a scientific basis and is rapidly becoming  one of the leading fruit-growers of the  province. J. D. Honsberger and H.  W. Collins are well known both at the  coast and in Spokane arid Nelson in  connection with fruit exhibitions.

While I do not 'see'atiy risk from a  large stream-'of foreign workers pouring into our fields and factories, are  we not a little shortsighted in .thinking that, because a man moves his  body from one place to another he  should instantly come into the full  rights of citizenship without.our being sure he is of worthy blood?"  Dr;    jRob^rtsson   further   said  that  there was general discontent in Can  ada with  the present product of the  public schools.

O. IIIIX Hiiii  (Standard of Empire)  British manufacturer*" would do well  to study the requirernents of Western  Canada, and, indeed,   the whole of the  Dominion,   in the direction of motor  wagons for commercial use. Although  horse-drawn vehicles still largely predominate in all parts of the Dominion,  they tire gradually being displaced to  make way for  the more convenient  and  less costly  motor.     It has  been  estimated    that   the   total    cost   per  month, including interest on capital;  of a 3k ton  gasoline   motor   wagon,  with driver, is about $187 in Canada,  and   of a.  heavy double   wagon with  two horses and driver, $135.   As, however,   the    motor  wagon    will   travel  thirty-five   miles a day as against sixteen   miles  for  the  horse-wagon, the  cost per ton-mile (allowing for goods  being carried over only   half the mileage) is ")''} cents for  the motor wagon  and 13 cents for the horse wagon.    In  the    British     West   Indies���������Jamaica,-  Trinidad,  and British   Guinea, and so  on���������the  market for  motor  vehicles is'  also a   very promising  one.    The cost  of keeping  horses in   these Colonies is  so high   that motor  cars are  likely to  be substituted for them   to a. very considerable extent.  Edmonton, Alta.i April 15.���������Health  Officer Whitlaw declared yesterday  that there was danger of the negro immigrants from the southern states  bringing the hookworm into Canada.  This disease was', brought into the  southern states by the negroes from  Africa and some time ago J.D. Rockefeller gave $1,000,000 to combat it. It  grows to alarming proportions in humid climates, and while Dr. Whitlaw  says the cold northern climate will  prevent its spreading to any serious  degree, the danger nevertheless exists  with the coming of the negro.

TO HORSEBREEDERS  .Victoria, April 12th, 1911  Dear Editor  I beg to draw to your attention the  existence of the Horse Breeders' Lien  Act ��������� Chapter 21, 1907 and Chapter 24,  1911, which requires that:  (1) Every person, firm or company  standing or travelling any stallion for-  profit or gain in the province of British Columbia shall cause the name',  description and pedigree of such stallion to be enrolled in the Department,  and shall procure a certificate of such  enrolment as hereinafter provided.  (2.) The fee for such enrolment and  certificate shall be five dollars.  (8) Upon the transfer of the ownership of any stallion enrolled under  this section, the certificate of enrolment may be transferred to the transferee by the 3Iinister, upon proof to  his satisfaction of such transfer and  upon payment of the fee of two dollars.  (4) The owner of any stallion standing or travelling for profit or* gain  shall post up and keep affixed during  the whole of the season copies of the  certificate of such stallion, issued under the next preceding section, in a.  conspicuous place both within and  upon the outside of the main door  leading into every stable or building  where the said stallion stands regularly for public service.  I am enclosing the original act of  of 1907 and the Amended Act of 191.1  and trust that this mutter may lie  made public in order that all stallions  standing for service, in the province  of British Columbia, may In-conic  registered in this Department.  Application for registration should  be made to the Live Stock Commissioner. Depai tineiif of Agriculture.  Victoria, and should be accompanied  by a Postal Order for $5.91) to cover  registration fees.  Your very I ruly  31. A.'.Jl'LL  Live Sleek Commissioner  The   movement, for good   roads   is  not.confined to 0'ntatib'.-- Other provinces in  Canada are waking up to the  needs  of the   country in  this respect.  In Manitoba a movement is on foot to  build an improved highway from Winnipeg   to Winnipeg Beach along the  old main   road through Selkirk.   The  Provincial government has*been asked  to make- an estimate   of the cost of  construction and to  contribute money  towards its construction,   the balance  being financed  by the   municipalities  and  private   concerns   interested,   including the city of Winnipeg.   Should  the plan for a main  trunk road across  Canada materialize,   this piece of road  would probably be part of the system.  British Columbia  has  taken  steps to  begin the construction  of its end of  the trunk line,   and   with   3fanitoba  making a, beginning, it looks as if some  people   have faith  in the ultimate accomplishment of this   gigantic  task.  Whether it is ever accomplished or  riot,  agitation iu  its behalf will serve  to keep   the   good   roads   movement  alive in all parts of the country.  Good  roads are as  assential   to a-  country's  progress   as   railways.     These   latter  have little difficulty 111 getting the ear  of governments when they can show a  need for a railway in any pint of the  country.    Governments should be just  as  ready   to help on   the  building   of  good loads.���������The Canadian Farm.  Certain  Canadian Products   Essential to  United States  Tliisfrank admission from the New  York Herald's Washington correspondent shows that it was a blunder pure  and simple to send Fielding a nd Patterson to Washington-to make ruinous  trade concessions in order to obtain  what would haye to be given to us in.  any case without Canada's hands being tied in any . way or any of her industries ruined.  The Herald's Washington correspondent writes:  "If the  American  Congress rejects  the trade agreement now lief ore tlie  house the,cordial feeling  now prevail-  ing will be blighted.    Such a blow 'will  serve to turn Canada towards Hie British   tariff  reformers,   who   wailed  in  agony when the reciproeityngreement  was signed.     It will give impetus to a  strong feeling in   favor of prohibition  of  the export  of. many   natural  products  which the   United  States must  havel     Already  Quebec  and Ontario  forbid  the export of unmanufactured  pulpwood.      Ontario,  does   the   same  with saw logs.    New Brunswick will  do the same .with pulpwood.  A strong  sentiment   favors   the   enactment   of  laws which will require certain natur-  alproducts to he  finished in manufactures  in  Canada.    So, if congress  defeats the reciprocity agi cement it will  not only prevent American consumers'  from   getting these natural products,  les's  the present duty,  but  may���������'���������'prevent-their getting theni at all."'.  MAKING VERY FREE  Peculiar   Ideas   Entertained    By   Some  Quebec Representatives  APRIL ATHLETIC WORLD  The April number of that interesting Canadian publication "The Athletic World" has just reached this office.  A perusal of its pages and a glance at  the many illustrations give free pi oof  that in the covering not only of Canadian but also of universal sports and  general pastimes, this magazine is  more than fulfilling past promises and  marking out a future of certain and  unqualified success as a national  periodical for Canadian followers of  sports of all sorts.  FORGET   WAIVES   EXTRACTION  Alleged Jewelry Thief, Arrested in Nelson  Returned to Spokane  Hoy 31.

F. F. Fox, of Spokane,  consented yesterday morning to return to the Inland Empire city without-putting   the state of   Washington  to the expense, of extradition proceed- ! Columbia   as    the  ings. j merit will   push it  The .Lanctot inquiry just concluded  at Ottawa goes to show the remarkable ideas which some of the government supporters from Quebec have of  the amenities and emoluments attaching to their positions.  In the Lanctot case the representative for Sorel  had $1200 worth of government   labor   and   stores   used   in  painting his house between   June and  November of hist year during which  time the men were constantly at work  on   Lanctot's  house   and   their   lime  turned   in   every day to   the government shipyard.    There  was   nothing  on the   books of the  shipyard to show  that  Lanctot owed   the government a  cent, but Lanctot in  his defence   produced a   cheque for $371.62 issued by  him   payable  to   the   department   of  Marine and Fisheries dated November  22hd,   1910  but not  cashed  until January  1911,   after  threats  of exposure  had become common talk. This cheque  did not  cover- the paints and oils used  and so far as shipyard records go there  was  nothing  to show   that   thev  hail  ever been missed, but   later on Papin-  eau .-in   official claimed  in the  investigation   that he  replaced the   material  used  out of his own   pocket  and that  Lanctot   had  reimbursed him.      This  amount for material brought the total  payments up to $450.  This showing doesn't look well for a  government that with a flourish of  trumpets introduced a labor department with a whole live minister.  William Lyon 31acK.eii7.ie King at it.*-  head. but in practice actually scabbing  the unions by supplying for $45ti what  the regular market for labor and  material would require $1200. Nevertheless if we are to exculpate the member for Sorel and the Department of  3Iarine and Fisheries from dishonest  intent, the scabbing alternative is the  other horn of the dilemma on which  thev must land.  He tvn.s taken on board the Great  Northern train by detective Thompson of the Spokane force, who was  accompanied here by 31 r. Fox and  Emigration   Officer O'Neil of Waneta.

METEOROLOGICAL.  THEN AND NOW  Shrewd Americans like' Klbei t Hubbard   in their anxiety to see the  reciprocity deal with .Canada  consummated   are trying to influence  public, opinion in the.  United States in its favor  'by wailing that, the Canadian tariff  is  driving  American   manufacturers across the line  to start- new factories on  the Canadian side, and the wail   too is  every word of it-truth  which can easily   be  shown "'by" an"'enumeration' of  the    large   manufacturing    concerns  . from   the.   United   States   who   have  found it necessary   to  e.-tablish  large  factories on this side of the line.     But  what are   we  to   think  of Canadians  who in face of this plain evidence will,  in obedience to blind  parly prejudice,  follow     like    sheep   where,   the   bell-  wclhei lead.- them into the wolf's den.  The   little   Liberal   country    weeklies  of Ontario and   the    maritime    provinces   that raved anti protection   for a  full  twenty   yeais    before   1S9G   and  stayed quiet.on -that question   for fifteen years, after-   1S9(i   while  the   bellwether was  quiet   are now out again  shrieking free trade at the full capacity  of  their lung   power.     The   farmers  whom   they  are    trying    to    mislead  should  compare,  the   prices  they are  now getting  for their  produce   with  what they were in 187S and  the years  preceding the introduction of the   National Policy.     In   those  hard   times  the prices of wheat and   other cereals  were  down   to  the lowest notch    and  beef and   pork   the   same,   while   his  maple, elm and  other  hardwood   logs  could  find   no   market   at any  price.  But within two years after a   piotec-  tive   tariff   went   into   operation    the  Ontario farmer could  get  ready   cash  for all the  hardwood logs   he   wanted  to deliver to   the   mills, and   now   the  prices of cereals   have risen   to figures  undreamt of  in   187S   and  prices   for  ��������� his cattle and hogs more than doubled  and all  this has   been   brought  about  under a protective tariff.   The popular  ery  among   the   Liberals   is   that   the  Canadian protective tariff was created  and is being maintained solely for the  benefit of the Canadian manufacturer,  but Elbert Hubbard   has   told   us   and  told us  truly   that  it  has  driven   his  big competitors it.   the  United States  to come over here  and  build factories  in opposion   to   him,   thus  creating a  greater  home  market  for labor   and  for farm   produce arid   making   more  business   for   the    grocer    and    every  other line of trade.     We   do  not deny-  that the  Canadian   manufacturer  has  benefitted by the tariff   ill a. nio.-t substantial way, and so also   has   the  farmer and everybody  else.

The turnout of members was not as  large as expected and the ladies were  in-the minority. There were (inly a  sufficient number taking part to make  up two sets.

Rumors were, current in town last  week of various sales of Steamboat  mining claims in Vancouver by former Hedleyites who have made some  easy money. As most of the claims  now being sold in Vancouver are  snow locations about which little or  nothing can be known until after the  snow goes away, it begins to look as  if a. lot of the Vancouver unearned increment from real estate is going to  disappear about as  rapidly as it came.  Genuine sympathy was extended by  one and all to Mr. and Mrs. Gillespie  last week on the death of their baby  which took place at air early, hour on  Thursday morning. What made the  circumstance more trying was the absence of the child's, mother who is at  present in California' owing to ill-  health. The loss is.also a trying oire  for the grandmother, Mrs. W.' .A. McLean, who has been caring for the  child ever since Mrs. Gillespie went  ..south two months ago.  The teachers and pupils of the Hedley Union Sunday School held a successful Easter entertainment in Fraternity hall on Monday evening. The  hall was tastefully decorated with  evergreens and (Towers among -which  the caster lily had a prominent place  in the decoration scheme. The exercises or programme were partly devotional and the various recitations given by the children were appropriate-  to the occasion and showed careful  training. The collection taken up was  in aid of the Sunday School and was  liberal.  ���������A fewer number of seats for the concert on the 28th have been reserved  than has been the custom for several  entertainments that have been in the  hall of late. Mrs. Brown has requested that a couple of rows or- more of  chairs in the back be giveii for the  use of holders of 7.*>c tickets and as  this will leave a. fewer number of reserve seats to be disposed of, those  who want reserves should not leave it |  oil'too late.

Therefore lie  believed that the Federal Navy should  be, available for the purpose of cooperating with the Home Government's forces at any desired time and  place. The speech of the Earl of  Dudley has aroused considerable comment as, to some extent, at any rate,  it conflicts with the policy ofjjthe  government as enunciated by the head  of the Ministry, Mr. Fisher.

Tommy Daly was re-elected captain of the team, .Toe Cooper,  ���������manager, J. A. Brown, secretary-treasurer, and these with Charley Armstrong and G. G. Keeler will form an  executive.
