There is no gainsaying the fact that  fraternal societies that dabble in life  insurance have relieved a great  amount of suffering and protected  many a poor family from want when  the bread-winner was taken away; but  there are nevertheless thousands of  other tragiidies Vvhere nieh who have  depended, on them find themselves  late in life with no other insurance  and a burden on their hands that ad ���������  vanoed years and a consequent diminished earning power .-makes it impossible, for them to carry. One such is  shown in a letter taken from the Toronto World under the heading "Government Should Act." The letCer is  as follows:  "Editor World: I notice by your issue of the 17th that the United'Workmen society after October intends raising tlui.monthly rates so high,on its  old -members, they will, be forced to  drop out, owing to the prohibitive  charges and changes which they intend to make. This change would  seem to be directed against the old  members who for the last 28 or 31)  years have materially assisted in keeping it in existence.  '���������This change, if carried out, is one  of tho most high-handed and outrageous proceedings ever perpetrated oh  the old and confiding members of the  order, who we're-and are relying solely  oil this insurance for support in their  old age,into the coffers of which they  have been paying for the last 25 or 30  years, and to think at a time when it  may become a claim, are, in plain  English, to pay the excessive charges  or get out.  If the institution is bankrupt, win-  not say.so, and have it wound up.at  ���������once, instead of forcing more money  out of its.oldijiieinli^i-s.and., above alL_  ���������coaxing and cajoling younger men into the order, and with their money  hoping to give it a. Iai-ger existence?  It is generally conceded that it is  About time the provincial government,  ���������or federal, took action to see that the  members of tlie order get justice and  fair play in this sr>-eallcd "fraternal  insurance," with which the whole  country is honeycombed.  "In the case of a member who has  been paying $3.80 monthly for thirty  years, and who by the proposed increase of rates, will be forced to pay  $11.40 a month, or $130.80 a year, the  result will assuredly be that members  will be forced out and Jose all. This  would seem to be the move of the  "fraternal society." Such insurance  would seem to be a fraud on its old  members.  "The members of such societies have  to die young to be able to leave something for those dependent on them, or  surely be  forced out in old age.    This  proposed  increase of rates is  not the  first; twice before it was raised.   Why  was the  order not placed on a proper  financial basis then?   Who is to blame  that it was  not?     Not the members.  Such kind of insurance if not properly  managed at   its   inception, generally  goes to the wall.    You say the proposed new   rales are  based on the "Hunter  mortuary   tables." What have we  got to  do with   this, or  how many of  its    members  know   anything   about  those tables?   I venture to say not one  in 50 ever heard of "Hunter's tables."  We  have   been   paying  as much into  this   society    as   we   would pay into  a good  stock company,   with this difference,   that you   have got to pay otiose all.    While  in   stock   companies  you get  interest for your money, and  if after three years you desire to drop  the insurance,   you get back a certain  amount of what you paid in.  "This treatment by stock companies  is more like "fraternalistn" than that  handed out by societies that talk so  much about it. As a constant reader  of your paper-, I hope you will publish  this letter and let us know were we  are at, and if the old members can be  fleeced with impunity.  An Old Member of tlie Order.

Kinney, who has traveled  a. great deal and who has explored the  Selkirks and Rocky "Mountains,  and  who lias  lived in Kentucky, where he  explored the caves, large and small, of  that state, in  a recent; interview, told  of   experiences  in   tlipse   weird   subterranean    passages.      Kentucky,   he  says,    has   the   largest   cave   in   the  world, its various  passages covering a  distance of seventy miles.    Most all of  the streams flow underground there.  The formation is largely limestone and  the subterranean waters find no great  difficulty in eating  their way through  it.    He told of eyeless  crayfish   and  other fish found  in the  subterranean  waters.     Mr.  Kinney   spent a great  deal  of time in exploring  in the Canadian  Rockies and  the Selkirks,  and  told how he had discovered a number  of wonderful caves,  some being in the  Selkirks and others iin   the Rockies.  The largest of these is   located in   the  vicinity  of Mount ltohson.     He says  ho only  partially  explored,   although  he travelled for several hours at a time  through it.     There.'ate mighty waterfalls, glistening stalactites and stalagmites in every conceivable and fantastic form.    During his;narrative he described    many  hair-breadth   escapes.  Once    when     wadiifg    breast     deep  through   a   subterra'hlan    lake,    the  water  was so ; woiulerf ully clear that  he lost sight of the'" Hue between  air  and  water and  the lantern   went out  through   being immersed,  and he was  left in the darkness.     Fortunately he-  had  matches and   relit   his   lantern.  Otherwise  he would   have had a fearful time  in getting out  of the cave" as  the way led over precipices and waterfalls.     The speaker  told of beautiful  'eaves that'rie; foiimt- r/iied  with ruck  crystals, garnets and'-other semi- precious stones.  SPUR LAID AT LAST  Work of Installing Platit of B. C. Portland Cement Co. Will Now Be  Rushed to Completion  FOR FRUIT GROWERS  Now that the apple .and pear season  is on. fruit growei-s and  fruit packers  are reminded that every box of .apples  and  pears   offered  for   sale   must  be  properly   packed   in    standard   sized  boxes  and   must  also be   marked in a  plain  and judclihk-  manner in  letters  not less  than one  half inch in length,  before  it is taken  horn the premises  where it is packed, with the initials of  the grower's Christian   names, his full  surname and address, the name of the  variety and the grade.    Ordinary lead  pencil   marks   are not   indelible.     A  stencil is the best means of complying  with  the  law.    A rubber stamp will  make an   indelible  mark  is carefully  used.     Copies of the  inspection and  sale act. part IX (the Fruit Marks Act)  explaining all about  the grades and  the markings  may be hail  on application to D. M.   Robertson, deputy fruit  inspector. 237 Sixth street. New Westminster, B. C.  The Great Northern which has been  responsible for delaying the opening  of the British Columbia Portland Cement Company's plant at East Princeton by at least a year through failure  to lay the steel on the spur to works,  has at last limbered up sufficiently to  do this small job, and work of installing the balance of the machinery in  the factory will how be rushed through  as quick as possible to enable the  manufacture of cement to begin at the  eai-liest possible date.  Last week the railway got to work  and as the job is a small one it has  doubtless been completed by this time.  This final move of the Great Northern  has probably been the outcome of recent visits of Mr. George and 0. R.  Briggs, the secretary, who made it  th'er business to see officials of the  road to urge upon them the speedy  laying of the steel.  The line of the Kettle Valley will  pass so close to the works that the  surveys of that line can as easily be  made to enable them to get their  share of the business as not, for their  track will have to cross the Great  Northern spur which has been put in.  When the Kettle Valley line is completed there is no doubt that they will  get handling a good share of tlie factory's' product, and president Warren  to whom this has been pointed out  will doubtless see that his road is put  in position to conn-, in for its share.  It was estimated that only two  months would be required in the first  place to instal the machinery after  the spur went in, and as the Cement  company have been compelled to team  a good deal of it from Princeton station and instal it without waiting for  the laying of the steel it is nut expected now that many weeks will lapse  until they 'are turning out''*" cement'  and by the end of the year a considerable quantity will be available for the  market.  JIM HILL SELLING OFF  Give   Option to. C.P.R.   on   Rossland  and Nelson Lines.  Vancouver Aug. 13 -It is stated  today on  excellent authority that the  Canadian Pacific Railway  has secured  an option, expiring on the last day of  August,  for  the    purchase   of  those  sections of the Great Northern system  extending from    Northport ��������� to  Ross-,  land and   from  North port "to  Nelson,  the  two  roads  being   known  as  the  Red' Mountain   line   and    the    Fort .  Sheppard.     The  lines   were  recently  inspected    in    detail   by a  Canadian  Pacific official designated  foi the'task  by President ShaughneVsy.  The. rnotives of the Canadian Pacific railway in seeking to acquire  these short sections are said to lie in  connection with plans for making one  of them a link in an alternate through  line to the coast via the Kettle Valley  line. By constructing a new road  connecting the Corbin line with the  Nelson and Fort Sheppard line, easy  grades would be secured and the transfer of through freight to the boats on  Kootenav lake would he obviated.  CANADIAN BIS LEY TEAM  Some  Interesting Features  of the Make-  Up���������A Parson Competitor  A CUP O' TAY  MINISTER OF MINES  Canadian    Ministers    Invited    by    Mr.  John Redmond to Visit Ireland  London, Aug. 7���������Kt. Hon. R. L  Borden, Hon. L. P. Pelletier and Hon.  C. J. Doherty were guests of Mr. John  Redmond at tea in the House of Commons yesterday. Several matters relative to Irish trade in Canada were,  discussed, including the question of an  Irish trade mark and distinct statistics  of Irish imports into the Dominion.  Mr. Redmond tendered the Canadian ministers an invitation to visit  Ireland. Mr. Doherty expressed the  intention of going and Mr. Borden  may possibly go.  The premier spent the week-end  with Mr. Waldorf Astor. M. P.  A letter from  Bish-y, England, published  in an   eastern  paper,   had  the  following  to say of Rev. IT. W.

It is scarcely  necessary   to add that this   has added  immensely to his popularity at Bisley.  In   the course  of conversation   with  the officers and men many interesting  facts were learned-about the Canadian  team.     Half of   the   men   hail   from  Eastern   Canada and   half   from   the  Western provinces.    Half are married  and  half are  single,   half   again   are  Canadian   born, and half first saw-the  light in the Old Counti-v.  HOSPITAL DONATIONS  West Likely  to Get Another  Portfolio.

What "old member" says is true as  between his society and the regular  stock companies, but some oik-should  have told him of a mutual company.  Had  he  chosen    the  Mutual   Life of  Canada instead he would be paying  less, than $25.00 a yeai for the same  amount of insurance that is now to  cost him $130.80 and he could draw in  actual cash if he wanted to the nice  sum of about $1575.00: or he could quit  paying altogether and take a paid-up  policy for about $1380 although he  would not have paid in for it in that  lime mpro than $875. These figures  are taken from actual results that  have been paid in a similar case and  are therefore not mere estimates-.  GENERAL NEWS  Counterfeit $20 bills are in circulation in Hamilton Ont.

As that day happens  to be gunpowder plot day this year,  who can it be that Teddy intends to  blow up?  ��������� France joins Biitain in her protest  against the act of the United States  Senate on the Panama bill. French  papers indicate the probability of a  universal tariff war against the United  States if she persists in ignoring treaty  rights of other- powers.  More Russians want to come to B.C-  The way in which Doukhobonrs and  others from the Czar's domain have  behaved themselves in the country  makes it questionable whether it  would not be preferable to have Japanese and admit them to full citizenship than to try to make good Canadians out of people with such outlandish notions as the Doukhobonrs  who will not obey the laws of the  country and who absolutely refuse to  fight in its defence. They take no  interest in the civic institutions of the  community in which they reside and  buy nothing from local merchants.  Then there is the perennial difficulty  of making them keep their trousers  on. If Asiatics are to be excluded,  the Tartarean instincts of the Russian  immigrant are so near the surface  that for all practical purposes he  might as well be bunched with all the  rest of them.  Now that  the United  States Senate  has declared   for repeal   of the. Canadian  Reciprocity Act,   anil .also that  the new Roosevelt party have adopted  repeal Of it as one ' of  the  planks, of  their   platform   notwithstanding   the  fact  that Teddy   himself  wrote  that  letter to Taft saying how he approved  of  what Taft  "proposed  to do  with  Canada",   isn't it funny  that Scott of  Saskatchewan  should  appeal   to   the  Anierican  settlers in  Canada   to vote  for him   because he  was a  reciprocity  man    who    was    prepared  to   follow  Fielding, Patterson and Laurier to the  last ditch, and funny also  that these  same American settlers should respond  to his appeal as they did.    It has been  claimed   by   some   Anierican   writers  that there are voters on the south side  of the 49th parallel  so far behind the  times that  they do not know the war  for  "secesh"  is  over yet.     It would  almost look  as if it were some of that  kind  who have  taken up   their abode  in  Saskatchewan.     As the Canadian  tariff is now very little more than half  that of  the  American   tariff,   if it is  even that  much, and as  both the Republican and Democratic parties stand  pledged to a revision  of the Anierican  tariff   downward,    (particularly    the.  ���������Democrats  who   promised to give all  the  freedom of trade which  the reciprocity pact   would   give)   the   most  feasible   and   logical   way   for   these  Yankee settlers  in   Saskatchewan  to  secure    the   reciprocity   their   hearts  yearn   for,   would   be    for   them   to  hurry up and get  in their nice  Cana-  harvests in good time to allow them a  month or two before November 4th to  go  back  to "God's  country" and persuade  their old   neighbors to vote for  Woodrow Wilson and low tariff.  thought  they may   have  obtained by  changing stolen bills for them.

HIKAM INGLKK  July 29th, 1912 31-10 THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, AUG 15. 1912.  Town and District.  Mrs. Bert Jones and her daughter  Marguerite lclt on Monday for Nanai-  juo where they will visit Mrs. John  Jainiefeoii.  Rev. A. Ii. Cameron and G. VV.  Cooper came up from Kerenieos on  Friday to attend tlie regular nieeLing  of Hedley Lodge A. F. ���������'& A. M.   ;'���������  The Gazette, had tlie pleasure of  saiiipliiigsonie fine nice red Astrachan  apples from John Jackson's orchard  up near Stirling Creek. Friday's wind  Storm knocked down quite a. few of  the earlier apples.  O. H. Carle has the Gazette's thanks  for a tasty box of fine ripe Kerenieos  peaches which came to hand on Saturday arid have been .duly .appreciated  by the office staff and others who have  helped to sample them..  Mrs. Ii. S. Collins has been making  satisfactory progress after the atnpu-  i-tation as could be expected. The  weather fortunately has been in her  favor and a week or two more should  see her pretty well recovered from the  shock.  F. M. Gillespie went up the river on  Friday last to spend a few days above  Princeton. Mrs. Gillespie and her  mother went up about ten days ago  to W. A. McLean's road camp and  latest reports state that she is gaining  strength daily. '  The contractors ceased work in  putting the verandah around the hospital last week owing to the critical  condition of patients which made it  undesirable to. have any more disturbance about the premises than was ab-  solutely necessary..  The Gazette was shown a.fine basket of fish- caught by Geo. Bowerinan  up Twenty-mile, and all of them good  big ones. As a rule the fish caught in  Twenty-mile are small but these were  taken along distance, up the stream  which would indicate that the creek is  getting pretty well fished out down  near the town.  A heavy windstorm that came down  the valley on Friday afternoon was a  bit hard on the orchards that were  not duly protected hy windbreaks.  Some of the orchards had a fair-  crop of windfalls after the storm  passed. Fortunately the storm seemed to either taper off or take another  direction before it reachedTverenieos  where there is a much greater acreage  in fruit lands.  Important improvements are being  made at the central station of the  gravity tram where a new headgear is  being installed. There has always  been trouble at that point owing to  the very heavy strain and constant  weaiyind the breaking of Ilea vy shafts  was,'of frequent occurrence. The uneven wear on the two drums in time  produced a state of affairs that worked like a differential block and something had, to give, way ' under; the  strain. The new arrangement will  provide for three wheels and distribute the straui over the three.   ,  Hedley was well represented at the  meeting of the water commissioners  in Kerenieos on Saturday last, In  fact so much so: that some explanation is due as to why the commissioners failed to arrange to hold a meeting'  here. But in view of some of the  other shortcomings-"in the ariunge-  nient and advertising of these, meetings���������such as specifying in the. advertisement that the holders of water  rights residing in Hedley should ap  pear at the meeting, held in Princeton  on Friday and serving notices oil them  to appear in Keremeos on Saturday���������  one might as well cease to wonder at  anything.  The school inspector paid a visit last  week to Hedley with a view to investigating the need for a superior school  in the valley and it is expected that  word will be received this week to  make arrangements for fitting up the  extra room and procuring a qualified  teacher. In this connection the secretary asks us to invite the co-operation of resident house-holders who  could take outside pupils to hoard.  There are pupils at other points in the  valley who have passed the entrance  and are qualified to attend the higher  classes '-.mil. it is desirable that tlie.  matter of board may be made as easy  for them as possible. To this end the  suggestion has been', made'that light  work could be given outside pupils  mornings and evenings to help then')  to pay for their hoard while .attending  the. higher classes.  COPPER  Either the Siinilkanieen game association did not kick hard enough or  "the powers that be" at Victoria, did  not pay proper attention to their kick  to have the open season for deer  shortened. Notices of game regulations for 1912 show the same old thing  and deer may be killed from Sept. 2  to Dec. 15th. Grouse of all kinds except prairie chicken may be killed  from Sept. 2 to Dec. 31. Beaver must  not be killed before November loth,  1913.  The Ethel Tucker Co. put on "Are  You a Mason" in Fraternity Hall on  Tuesday night. Only a medium-sized  house turned out for the performance,  for a whispered rumor seemed to have  drifted in from some where that it  was not up to much, but there were  few present who could resist the exceedingly funny situations that developed in quick succession as the  crazy burlesque proceeded. All the  audience were promised was a good  laugh and they assuredly got it. As  for the. company no reasonable fault  could lie found with the way each  part was taken. We are sure that if  the same, company comes back to  Hedley with any like production they j  can count on a much better house  than they had on this occasion.  Authentic information is still lacking as to final arrangements for  building iu the Coquihalla. It was  understood that the Railway Commission would assist at an adjustment  which would determine what sections  and distances of the remaining unbuilt portion to Hope would he constructed by the V. V. & E. and the  Kettle Valley. It is one thing to decide where each will build and another to decide when. Whether tlie arrangement be a patch-up or a frame-  up,let us hope at all events that it will  not he a. further sit-down, As Unbuilding in the Coquihalla need in no  way elfect the programme of the V.  V. ifc E. in building from the Tulaineeii  to tin- .summit and as no move has yet  been made to move a shovelful beyond  Tulameen it would look as if the Great  Northern has not yet got sufficiently  rested after the terrible strain to  which they have been subjected in the  mad race of building from Midway to  Tulameen.  The N'cwKdition of the  COPPER HANDBOOK.  just published, is volume X, for the years 1910-  1911, and required nearly eighteen months in  preparation.
