MASTERS  l DENTIST  ���������Will be at Home ofliee in Oroville, 1st  to 20th of each .month.  Office  on North   Main   Street.  With the visit of Messrs. Merrill  and Beam to Hedley last week the  public were reminded of the work  which is soon to be undertaken to  prove ii]) the properties taken under  bond by Mr. Beam a few weeks ago.  The ground to be prospected covers a  fine stretch of territory conveniently  located for working and lying close in  to the town. It is made up of the  Bradshaw group, the DulFy group, the  Toronto and Galena, the Paris, the  Red Mountain and a few others'. These  for the most part lie on . the Twenty-  mile creek slope and geological condi  tions oiler the greatest encouragement  for successful exploitation and the  showing up of fine bodies of payable  ore.  One drill is to begin work in a. few  days to be follomed by a second very  shortly after and before the summer  is out there will in all probability be  three drills at work piercing the formation for a thousand feet and moie to  show up what is below. The dip of  the strata, is towards the bed of  Twenty-mile Creek and thus when the  ore they are after is discovered it can  be worked much more advantageously  than that which is every day being  'mined at the Nickel Plate.  At present hole casing and piping  are being brought in and everything  got in readiness for an extensive campaign of exploration work. Mr. Beam  is expected' back in Hedley in a little  better than a week and he will be here  off rnd on during tho summer.  The exploration work will be under  the. immediate supervision of 0. P.  Jones and a little later on a nniti is  coining from the Colorado School of  Mines to pub in the summer prospecting and geologizing on the ground.  The bonds on most of the properties  extend over three years and the bondholders are prepared to give the  ground a thorough testing. When  they get through more will be. known  about the hill than ever before. They  characterize the deal as a straight  gamble on their part and of course  they could add that the chances are  all in their favor bub they prefer to,  let time decide that.  While' it may not be fully decided  that the commencement will be made  on the Red Mountain ground there is  every probability that it will be there.  There is a great deal of snow on most  of the ground bub men have been  showelling- snow for a few days to permit of supplies and equipment being  taken on the ground.  New ' Announcement Re Kettle Valley-  Regular Trains from Kootenay to  Coast in Spring of 1914  (Nelson News)  By next fall the Kettle Valley railway, which will slice about 21 hours  off the titiro at present- occupied in  travelling from Winnipeg to Vancouver, will have been completed and  trains will be in operation over the  system by the spring of next year,  according to information which has  been furnished C. E. McPherson, of  Winnipeg, assistant general traffic  manager forthe Canadian Pacific railway,- by ,J.,r. Warren of Toronto, pres:  ident of the Kettle Valley company.  Mv. McPherson made tit is announcement at a conference with the board  of trade yesterday afternoon when he  described what the Canadian Pacific  was doing to advertise the Kootenay-  Boimdery district, made it clear that  the company was operating a dining  car service on tlie Crows Nest line and  declared that the travel from Nelson  east was not yet sufficient, to jnstify  the putting on of a through sleeping  car-service between this'cityand Winnipeg, but that Ik.- hoped the inauguration of the through shorb line service  would justify this improvement.  Directly the business warranted it  the company would put cm the through  sleeper, he declared. He expected that  the traffic would increase very greatly  when the Kettle Valley line was completed and hoped that through sleepers from Nelson to Vancouver would  then be in operation. He' quoted a  letter from Mr. Warren in which the  Kettle Valley line president stated  that he expected the line would be  completed this fall and that through  trains would be in operation next  spring.

The principal business that engaged  the attention of the Hospital Board at  the regular meeting on Monday night,  besides thopassiiig-of the usual inoiith-  current accounts, was that of dealing  with the matter of providing accommodation for cases that require isolation, and also to consider the difficulty  which the . Board at present huve on  their hands in consequence of the  alien patient which had been sent  back here unjustly by the United  States immigration authorities.  In the matter of isolation a committee had been appointed at a former  meeting to inquire into ways and  means and estimate the ; cost of providing adequate isolation accommodation. This .committee reported that  the amount necessary to provide suitable buildinge for such a purpose  would require a sum at present beyond  the means at the disposal of the Board  but they stated that the object sought  could be attained by means of a couple  of good-sized tents which could be  warmly boarded at. the bottom and  provided with heaters that could be  made to supply the amount of warmth  required. This recommendation met  the views of the Board and the committee were asked to go ahead and secure these.  So far as the claims of humanity  and the duty and responsibility of the  Board in the matter of the alien Hnr-  vich was concerned, it was felt that  an injustice had been done on the part  of those who were responsible for  sending the man back, and it was desirable that steps should be taken to  place the responsibility where it properly belonged. To that end a commit  tee was appointed consisting of James  Clark and A. Megraw, the two new  members of the Board. Meanwhile it  was agreed that notliingshould be left  undone to see that the man was duly  cared for.  Dr. MeEwen was present at the  meeting by request of the chairman  of tlie Board and gave valuable information which was of assistance to the  Board in dealing with various matters  that came up for consideration.  Ottawa, April IS.���������The house spent  the day discussing government measures, the closure debate being put over  until Monday. The most important  matter taken up was Hon. Martin  Burr-ell's bill to provide for an expenditure of $10,000,(100 on agriculture in  the next decade. He. explained that  the. money'will be divided between the  various provinces for work on education.  He quoted .a number of extracts  from ��������� newspapers in virions parts of  Canada to show that the principle of  the measure .had been generally approved irrespective of politics, He also  rend a number of letters from leading  agricultural authorities endorsing liis  proposals. Mr. Burrell said that the  present bill was slightly different in  principle from that brought down a  year ago. At that time the appropriation could be used for a variety of  agricultural endeavor. By this bill it  was restricted to agriculture education, and this plan had been generally  endorsed by authorities from every  province.  The opposition professed agreement  with the principle of the hill but haggled over some of the details. The  leading speeches from the opposition  in criticism of it were from Dr. Chirk  of Red Deer and Prank Oliver.  Inhumanity of U. S. Immigration Officers  Works Imposition on Hedley  Hospital  BACK TO THE WOOD  Wood Block Paving Being- Re-established in Public Favor  The next Hague -conference will  take up the question of immunity of  merchant' vessels from seizure in wartime.  The Democrats are fully redeeming  their pledges to the country in the  matter of tariff revision.  The prospects of a great wood pavement industry in tiiis province are becoming constantly brighter. With  the enormous wealth of fir timber-of  classes Nos. 1 and 2 Common, which  is regarded everywhere as almost the  best, if not the best in the world for  the purpose of paving. British Columbia offers a wonderful future lo this"  most important industry in the development of gu-at towns and cities.  The growing communities of the  Prairie and Coast provinces are laying  every year hundreds of miles of streets,  which might be paved with creosoted  wood ��������� block if only its virtues were  widely known. The city of Calgary  has laid two stieets, and they have  proved remarkably successful. There  have been numerous tests made of  paving materials in the great cities of  the world in Paris, London, Boston,  Chicago, New York and St. Louis,  and all of these great cities find-wood  block paving best, being of reasonable  cost, durable under any trafic, easy to  maintain and to clean, practically  dustless, firni under the feet of horses,  and of low traction resistance. The  Rue de Rivoli, Paris, has a pavement  of wood blocks which have stood for  years the city's heaviest traffic.  In Baltimore in 1001 a test strip of  miscellaneous pavement was laid on  Holiday street. This strip contained  11 test sections of paving materials,  which were in every case fur-rushed by  the manufacturer���������fine of creosoted  wood blocks, one of vitrified brick.  The superior durability of the wood  blocks was clearly in ' evidence after  four years, and in 1007 every area save  that paved with wood was in such bad  condition that the test was officially  declared closed. The wood blocks in  question, however, together with such  others as were needed, were immediately n-Iaid in paving the entire origi  rial test area.  * In Chicago also in 1000, a creosoted  wood block pavement was laid on  Michigan avenue, immediately in front  of the Auditorium hotel, and adjoining  it at the same time a strip of asphalt  block. In 1005 these asphalt blocks  were replaced by wood. During this  live-year period the asphalt had worn  down an average of an inch, and so  unevenly that ruts formed and the  blocks had badly rounded. In the  same peiiod the wood blocks lost but  an eight inch in depth, and the surface, save for one badly built gutter  at a single point, was of even grade  and smooth.  The initial  cost of creosoted   wood  clock pavement is on an average somewhat less  than  that of granite, not  widely   variant from   that  of   brick,  Continued on l'agc four  The   Medley  hospital   is at  the present  time being  subjected to another  of  the  impositions  that have at too  frequent intervals been saddled on it.  An old man. named Anton  Horwath,  a Hungarian who claims citizenship in  the   United States  and who  has lived  and   worked  there ever  since  leaving  his  native land,-was  working for the  Great Northern railway.    He was employed fin track repairs and happened  to   be sent  across  the line  where  he  was temporarily working on the B. C.  side near Chopaca, when he was taken  sick  and   bundled   on   the   train  for  Hedley to   the hospital here.     He had  no money to pay for attendance.in the  hospital and'as he   was a man of large  statue and almost  completely helpless  and his  complaint   not of a   untrue to  be  left  to   a  woman   attendant,   the  hospital   board were put to the eost ������*���������*������������������  engaging  a   man   nuise to  look after  him for weeks.'   After he had recovered some  what he was sent to Oroville  where  the United States immigration  officer turned a deaf car   to his.protestations that   he was an American citizen, and because he could nut pi-odiuc  offhand   evidence     of   his    light     to  live in a country which   had   been his  adopted    home   since    1001     bundled  him   on   the   train   again   and  landed  him back in Medley. Constable Sproule  found him at the  Great Northern station   here  and  as  he could   not leave  him without some .-belter or rare took  him to the  lockup where he has been  looking  after him   ever since.    If this  be  the  way  in   which    foreign    residents   of  the   United Slates  who  are  either   naturalized  citizens   or   have  declaied   their  intention   are   treated  by United States  immigration officers  and if United States railways running  into  Canada  are  to   allow   their  em-  plffyees from across the line to become  charges   upon   the  charitable   institutions in  Canada, then il is about time  the Canadian  authorities were taking  the matter up with   the new president  at Washington   and with   the officials  of the Great Northern railway.  JAPS GET EXCITED  Mass  Meeting in Japan  Gets  Worked  Up Over Celifornia's Alien  Land Act-  Tokyo, A] i-il 17.���������A demand that  the Japanese Government resort to  arms was' hysterically clieered at a  mass meeting here to-night to protest  against bhe Alien Land Bill now before the California Legislature.  Twenty thousand persons assembled  and listened to addresses by various  orators. The speakers ,-ilso denounced  the submissive attitude of the Government.  The responsible newspapers of Tokyo  in commenting editorially on the  meeting, denounced the puieeedings  as undignified and unworthy of the  nation, describing them as merely an  outburst of the unthinking extreme  element, incited by political deina  gogues.  CANADA'S BIG YEAR  Men May Follow One Leader But Trade  Doesn't  Commercial prosperity seems to  follow Mr. Borden's stately lead as  faithfully as it did the white plume of  Sir Wilfred Laurier. As our trade increased by leaps and bounds during  Sir Wilfrid's long term, so it is continuing to increase, and Canada never  had such a year as the last. A revenue increased by thirty-five millions  has left a treasury running over  against the Government's many undertakings for-expenditure. If investors abroad needed assurance of Canada's prosperity, these figures would  seem to supply it.���������Witness.  The Belgiam strike is costing two  millions daily of which the strikers  are bearing a considerable share.  Snowslides were bad in the Kootenays during the past week.  The new British ambassador to  Washington is now on his way there  to enter upon his duties. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE,   APR 24,  1013.  Ibellif ������������ffe  and  SimJlkameeri Advertiser.

Thousands of incidents occur every year in  every country that would have just as  much right to cause a war as the  fancied insult to German honor implied in the little rudeness'at Nancy,  but no attention whatever is paid Io  them. When a nation and its citizens  are so touchy as the German is to-day  it would be. much better to stay at  home, or if they must wander abroad  looking for trouble they should at.  least leave the chip at home or, if they  must carry it, have it somewhere else  than on the shoulder and in full view.

Where Do You  ���������     Shop?  DO you shop in a brisk, active store, or in a dull  store?  Advertising, makes bright stores. Failure to advertise goes hand in hand with dullness and stagnation.  in  IU  111  m  HI  The evidence given by Byron K.  Walker of the Canadian Bank of Commerce before the committee of the  House on tiro Bank Act, is received  with a grunt deal of skepticism throughout the country. The name of Byron  -E. Walker has long been one to conjure by as nn authority on banking in  financial circles; in Canada as well as  in the United States and Great Britain  but his efforts to show by statistics  that banking profits are so much less  than   industrials  will   cause  many to  SAFE AS THE SAFEST  AND  Cheaper than the Cheapest  is a straight life policy in  MUTUAL LIFE  OF CANADA  The history of thousands of policies  on the above plan shows that it has  cost less than four dollars per year to  carry a policy of one thousand dollars.  If you doubt this call on the local representative and see the history of  one policy for 20 years; then ask yourself whether you know of any other  concern whether insurance, company  or benevolent society that can show a  similar record.  m  m  [Ml  m  m  Advertising brushes away cobwebs and dust, smartens shop  windows, quickens the intelligence of salesmen, and lets in the  sunlight.  Advertising makes the merchant think of you���������of your  wants and needs; makes him  anxious to serve you to your  liking and advantage.  Advertising keeps stock from  having birthdays.  Advertising acquaints you with  new things, and so brightens  your home, your life, yourperson.  Advertising keeps a business  from growing lazy and stupid.  Advertising injects good red blood  into the arteries of a business, and  kesps it healthful and active.  Shop where your wants and  needs areuppermost in the mind  of the merchant. Shop in the  store which reflects you, which  you dominate. Shop where  your money returns to you in  better goods, better values, better service.  Shun the shop" that is dumb  and dark and dreary; keep away  from the shop that never speaks  to you, never smiles at you,  never bothers about you.  Reward by your custom the  merchant who lives to serve you,  and who is doing his utmost to  build up this community; who  takes you into his confidence by  means of advertisements in your  local newspapers.  &  m  Ii  IF  I-  m  Every Plan of Genuine Insurance  It is  the  people's Company  and   its  profits are nil for the people  This accounts for the wonderful success which has attended forty-two  years of unparalleled progress aud  achievement.

"  The break in the flume last week  was rather- a hard one to repair and it  took three days before the water could  be turned in again. The difficulty was  in getting a new foundation to build on  owing to the amount that had been  washed out, although the break was  noticed almost as soon as it occurred  and prompt measures were taken by  the watchman   to turn the  water out.  It was reported last week that a  party of G.N.R. tyees were expected  to make a run over the line but they  ��������� did not come this far. They did reach  Oroville. however, and made a trip in  ���������autos over the route of the Oroville  Wenatchee branch now in course of  building. In the party were L. W.  Hill, the former president, Carl Grey,  president and L. C. Gilman, vice-president.  .As an illustration of the fact that it  pays to get the best, the purchasers of  high gracie White Leghorn stock from  T. C. Brooke last summer- are getting  good satisfaction from their pens.  These kept up their reputation for be  ing good winter layers and are credited with performances in laying that  is well up in line with the competing  pens in the egg-laying contest in Victoria. One pen of 11 pullets had a record 221 eggs in March and for the  first 21 days in April IS I- which is an  average ul'S.75 per day for the latter  period.  A fire in the roof of G. McEachern's  residence on Tuesday morning gave  the brigade a run-out. The fire had  not gained much headway and was  easily extinguished. Again the. fire  alarm service was very defective, and  something else will have to be devised.  So far as the telephone is concerned it  may as well be counted out in any arrangement which mayj be made, for it  is jiot available before 9 o'clock in the  morning and is more or less uncertain  at times through the day when quick  connection is required. Something  independent and something a great  deal louder is required. Fire alarms  that might work passably well in  other places will not do for Hedley  where the roar of the stamps is never  out of the ears.  Chief Charlie Allison goes to Spokane in afewdays to have an operation  performed in the removal of stone  from the bladder. While many of the  operations performed nowadays are  evidences of the advance of modern  suigical science, this removal of stone  from the bladder is nearly three hundred years old Lhat we know of, Colour good old friend Samuel Pepys who  was an eye witness of the doings of  the "merry monarch" and portrays so  faithfully-the social and political spit-it  of those times, never allows us to forget that he had been "cut for the  stone";'and as often as the anniversary of the event came around, he  reverentially remembered it.  As mentioned in last week's paper-  Mr. I. L. Merrill, president ,<if the  Hedley Cold Mining Co., was expected  in Hedley on Thursday of last week,  he leached here on that date and was  accompanied by Mr. T. "Walter Beam.  They spent a few busy days in the  camp during which they made a thorough inspection of the mine and works  and also paid a good deal ol' attention  to the site of the contemplated power  plant on the river, and also totlieground  covered by the claims which Mr. Beam  has under bond. Mr. Merrill embraced the - opportunity for a couple of  rounds of the golf course during his  stay and found the variety "of  Hedley links as interesting as  On Monday afternoon they left, when  Mr. Merrill was eastward bound. He  expects to sail for England about the  middle of May and has planned an  auto trip through England arid Scotland where-he will take in the leading  golf courses and see how the, game is  played across the water.  A  rather interesting -circumstance  was brought to the editor's notice during a visit to Keremeos.     On  the old  orchard  of the  It ranch they had dug  up one of the old trees originally planted  by   the late Frank  Richter   over  thirty years ago  and the trunk of the  tree was about IS inches through. But  the curious  part of it was that underneath the  roots which they had grubbed out were found  the head and carcass of a mountain   sheep over which  the tree  had been  planted.    Whether  Mr. Richter had used that kind of fertilizer to help on his  young orchard is  not known,   but the  greater probabil  ity is  that he  knew  nothing of  the  presence of the carcass when the young  tree .was.plun.led   and the  usual  good  fortue  which   attended  nearly all his  operations  so ordered it   that the tree  was  placed  in   that   particular spot.  The land at that point was a.ll alluvial  or river   wash and this  particular carcass may   have been   washed down by  the stream and lodged at this point to  be embedded in the silt.  A.

A very nice wedding was solemnized by the Rev. Father Conan at the  Surpri.se ranch Wednesday 16th when  "William Shuttleworth of Okanagan  Falls, and Lena. Surprise of Keremeos  were united in holy matrimony. Only  close relatives were present. The  bridesmaid was the bride's sister, Miss  Mary Surprise, and the groom was  supported by Mr. Gerald Shuttleworth.  The happy young couple left on the  evening's train to spend a short honeymoon in Spokane. We join with their  many friends in wishing them a long  and happy life.  There seems to be a brighter chance  of getting a localtelephone exchange  in town than there has been. Mr.  Layton of Penticton was in town on  the 21st and reports that the superintendent is doing his best to get it installed as early as possible. This  would be a great convenience to everyone in the. district, especially in the  summer with the upper valley when  considerable business is done in the  produce line. Anew trunk is to be  built from Keremeos to Hamilton  Hill, Nicola, substituting the old iron  wire with copper.  Through the kindness of Harry  Tweildlc with his ear Messrs. J. A.  Brown, li. II.

Johnson and Walter Kleinsky  of Oroville  are in town   and will start  on   the  painting  of the  R. C.   Clarke  residence.   Mr. Kleinsky came in from  Oroville   by  way  of  the Osoyoos and  White   lake  road   on   a  1013   Indian  motor cycle,   but  had   a   misfortune  while  coming   down  the   White Lake  bill.   He was not very well acquainted  with this part of the  country and was  not prepared for the sharp turn at the  bottom   and   piled   up on   the   rocks.  .Fortunately  he   was  not badly  hurt,  but his  machine was   put out of  business.     He was  able to make the Penticton road where a friendly auto towed Iiiin into Keremeos.  BACK TO THE WOOD  Continued from l'uge one.  and somewhat greater than that of  asphalt, inferior patent- pavements  and macadam. Its life in anything  like satisfactory condition, however,  is confessedly longer than theirs.' It  is but a truism, theicfore, to say that  the��������� proper biisis of judgement, at least  of wood block pavement, is the returns  upon its total live cost viewed as an  investment. This principle, well recognized abroad, though but recently  attracting attention here, intimately  involves, of course, the question of a  pavement's durability.  That the maintenance cost of creosoted wood block pavement is low follows as a necessary corollary to its  dulability. As a matter of fact, no  pavement shows so low an upkeep  cost. This is due in great part lo the  tenacity with which treated wood  blocks preserve their evenness of surface and of wear, and in a lesser degree to the ease with which wood  pavement is repaired, and, in the case  of underground improvements, removed without waste and relaid, in  the. exact place and quantity necessary. ���������   '...-'..  Certain wood block pavements  which have been laid in some cities of  Western Canada cannot be regarded  as fair 'experiments,- because of the  failure to treat the blocks with preset1-  (- '  vative before use, and because of faulty laying. Wood blocks must be  treated with pi eservative and evenly  laid on firm foundation.  The Forest Branch is securing all  possible data on this subject with a  view to encouraging in every way the  development of an enterprise which  will prove of tremendous importance  to the new towns and cities of the  growing west, and which by furnishing another market for wood will  greatly assist the lumber industry of  British Columbia. .  /v.

Amos Charles Kennedy  March'list, 1!I18. ll-l  SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  YOU WANT THE BEST!  IT ALWAYS PAYS BEST  There are Two Kinds of Printing  The one is turned out by the man who believes that  anything goes, hut the other by the one who values  the reputation of his establishment too highly to  allow any work to go out which will not do him  credit.  There is just as good Avork being done in country  offices as in the cities, and often as jioor work in the cities  as in the worst country shops  In Prices the country office can do just as well for,  you and you save the express. The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end ho is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of work.  ���������  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE  is prepared to  do any kind of work that may come along:  No order too small and none too large.
