H.;. have started in to develop. The tiip is easily made via  the'Nickel Phjte which is the shortest  and easiest Avay to get in.,',  The property is in the,,'east end of  Camp Hedley, being on,������he, summit  between the Similkameen river and  Keremeos Creek. vj>������; *:, ' ������  r Tlie ground Avas'jfijst staked in 1900,  by XV. D. j^cMillajaand W. J. Forbes,  but-later on Mr. McMillan .became the  principal.owner. tIn connection with  the'discovery. however, j.t is* interesting to'know that this portion of Camp  Hedley attracted attention earlier,  for it.Avas on Riordan Mountain about  tAyo miles north <that J[itum'y Riordan  staked-the Bipy ,Goafc at the'same time  as ho'located,'the ground .'.where the  Nickel Plate now,, is, but afterwards  allowed the Nickel Plate 'ground to  lapse and held on to the Billy Goat  claim which gave him better values  than he could get from his samples of  out-cropping from the Nickel Plate  ground,  Going, in from  the Nickel Plate, to.  the Colonial Gold. Go's properties.an  easier and shorter trail than the present one could be easily made by'leav-  the Penticton^Nickel Plate Avrigon road  some distance before it reaches the  summit and dips  into the   basin   of  I Keremeos Greek.   Itis only a matter  | of tiine, however,  until a good wagon  road will give the properties railway  connection with the V. V. & E. either  by Ayay of Eighteen-niile or Sixteen-  mile.  The.route for ingress and egi-ess  to and from the property during lire-  sent development operations and over  .which supplies' Avill be hauled, is'the  ne\v Avagon road two miles long Avhich  the B. 0. government are constructing,  and will have completed it in about a  week's tinie or less, .for it Avas atjthe  time of our visit,  something less than  half a mile distant.   ^This  connects  Avith the Penticton-Nicivei Plate wagon  road and Will make a much shorter-  haul than  that over which the Nickel  Plate mine equipment had to be hauled.' ' "   '";   ' .���������'.  *���������"������������������    -  Geologically   there   appears to   be  little or no 'difference   between   the  ground covered  by ��������� the Apex group  and that AVhich obtains at the Nickel  Plate, but topographically the difference  is most marked and to the advantage of the Apex.     PolloAving ,the  height   of  land   along    the   summit  soutliAVaid   from   VtJ^e   point  on ..the  wagon road, Avhei-e'it begins to dip towards the valley of Keremeos Creek  around mountain is ascended  that is  known officially as Lost Horse mountain and further along the range connected Avith   this   mountain are lavo-  deep gashes where  the eastern   side  has  been   eroded- down   leaving   the  narrow backbone dividing  the basins  of  the   Siinilkanieen  and   Keremqps  Creek.  Along  Nickel Plate Ball  Players Go Under On  a Score of- n' to 9.  The brilliant victory over Hedley  gained ,'by the Nickel Plate baseball  team two weeks ago avhs reversed on  Sunday when after a closely contested  garne the score stood 11 to 9 against  the tip-toppers.  The Hedley line-up on this last occasion was changed considerably and the  team strengthened. They had in the  box,, TQininyjbal^, of Ker-emeps, and  ���������the assistance . also, of." two skilful  jPlayei's .from .the" pile driver. ' fThe  Nickel Plate men,: oil the othor hand,  .hadionIy';theiivo>vn players 'rind-had to  leavelone^ortwo^pf^their best men behind'.because these". cVal'ld' not get off  Slnft..- However^ asi it was a* good stilt  game they were after and', preferr ed  that to a walk-over, they *agi<eed-' to  the line-up against them and did not  lodge any protest except by way of  good nature'd jibe when they claimed  to be playing Hedley and the whole  Similkameen Valley and the pile-driver  and the umpire.,  LIVE STOCK AT A. Y. P.  Time for Entries Extended���������Many Noted  Herds to be Represented���������Horse  breeders Active Also.  The hill-men   seemed   to  play   in  som8tip,f  harder luck this time and  their .errors proved costly. The tail-  end of the team was also more pio-  nounced than before and extended a  tiifle further up the back-bone ; Avhile"  the Hedley line-up-eA'ened up better  than it Avas two Ayeeks ago and Avas  visibly strengthened in the infield,'bu't'  notably at second and third base and  in the box, Avhere Tommy Daly pitched  good ball, and in fielding accepted  everything that came within his reach  no matter how hot, high or Ioav, As  a rule pitchers are not noted for good  fielding and it is not uncommon ^in  league ball to find professional pitchei;s  let some go past them that Avere not  half as hard to negotiate as some, of  the twinklers  that Tommy gathered  Seattle, Aug. 3.���������By reason of numerous requests coming f 10111 livestock breeders throughout the'United  States and Canada,- the dates for  entries in the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific  Live Stock Show have been extended  from 1st to August 25th.  The $63,500 in cash prizes which the  Expo.sition is ofreiing will bring the  herds to this contest'and many sales  will be held during'' the Stock ShoAV  dates, September. 27th to October 9th.  The' leading H01.se Breeders and Im-  (por;teis of the country will be on hand  with their latest and best importations  andjt'is(fgund that the grounds which  were originally 'assigned to the Stock  Show will have to'be enlarged to'ac-  counnodate blie ever increasing entries.  Cattle and Horses in train loilds will  be shipped over the various railroads  in special Pulman Stock cais and only  the very best of the breeds will contest for highest honois.  No one feature will create greater  general interest than the Live Stock  Show- and. those Avho witness it Avill  see one of the best shows ever held in  the country and decidedly the biggest  one ever 'contemplated AA'est of the  Rocky Mountains.

The.hj.ll-ineu in spite, of the fact that  the early innings Avent against them  playeda plucky game and made a rally  in the sixth thajt^ looked at one time  like pulling them through. Patterson  was not as effective, as before, but if he  had been given anything like fair support from the out fieM the scoring  against him .would.'have been considerably short of Avhat it was.

To  the south  of and adjoining this chain  of claims  and o\'erlappiner on   the Acacia and  Acadia is the Utopia which covers the  bottom of the southmost gash of the  two.     To the northward,   adjoining  and filling up the northern  gorge are  the Apex.Fraction .and Alpha.  The ore-bodies appear to be three in  number and distinct, one of Avhich is  traceable for a long.distance, striking  diagonally across the ridge, through  the valleys intervening and on to the  ridge beyond, t.he strike being approximately northeast aiid southwest.  Concluded on Page Four.  The holiday feeling pervading the  land during the hottest month of the  year is well represented in  the August issue of Rod and  Gun in Canada,  published by W.J.Taylor at Woodstock,  Ont.   How the  people in  the  Maritime Provinces, knoAvn by reason  .of the sea breezes as the "Kingdom of  Cooldom," enjoy the beautiful summer  weather is told in  a profusely illustrated  article.    A delightful  paper is  "Still Hunting with a Camera"; while  of equally absorbing interest is one on  similar lines���������"Shooting Wild Geese  With a Kodak."     To detail the list of  good  things would  be  to repeat the  .table of contents,  but  the article, on  ���������Voracious eaters by Martin Hunter is  worth  attention  from all sportsmen.  The King of Fur-bearers is a story of a  successful attempt  at fox rearing for  the sake of pelts.    Blood  hounds and  Trailing will appeal  to all dog lovers  and   Mr.   Bartlett's   paper   on    the  .Wolves follows up the interest created  through  the Magazine in  this important subject.    This number should accompany every sportsman on his vacation for in  its pages he Avill find much  to make his leasure time pass pleasantly.  .Oroville  Wright  flew .42  miles an  hour in his flying machine.  August was originally, the month  of Sextillis, but in the time of Augustus-there Avas ���������a movement'in the  Roman Senate to nam'e it for the  reigning Caesar. The resolution was  bitterly opposed by the insurgents and  Democrats;' but Agrippa Aldrichus  and Maecenas Cannous put it through,  and Cohsumus Ultimatus, the leader  of the opposition Avas made a galley  slave. The fight was one of the"most"  thrilling in the.history of Rome, and  it kept the Senate'in session so late in  the summer that some of the senators  almost .missed-- their Chautauqua engagements.  In the beginning, too, August had  but twenty-nine days, and it A\'as  pretty generally felt that this Avas  enough; but Julius Caesar added  two days, and only the entreaties of  the people restrained him from adding  tAvO or three more. jJ:e liked August.

The past Aveek has been a busy one  with the track-layers, bridge builders  and pile-driving crews.  The steam pile-driver working on  Twenty mile bridge got all the piles in  on Saturday, and on Monday morning  the iliien started for Squakini's to put  the bridge' in there.    -.  Last Friday night the steel gang  had passed Bradshaw's, finishing up  the siding at Bradshaw's station, and  reaching the bridge atShelder's where  a gang had been at work for several  days. The Shelder trestle, which provides an overhead crossing held them  until Monday night, the steel gang in  the interim putting in a spur at the  lower end of Brushy Bottom.  Tuesday night they reached the  Allison trestle Avhich held them a  while longer. This done, only about  two miles of straight track-laying remained to reach Twenty Mile bridge,  and that can easily be finished by to-  night.  There is at present no pile-driver  south of Hedley. One steam driver  now here will go to the thiid crossing  at Dr. Whillan's lanch and the other  is now at Princeton, while the horse  driver has been working at various  trestles between here and Princeton  during the past week.  Meanwhile, Mars will advance by  easy stages, and the signal corps Avill  practice daily for the interplanetary  communications Ave are to have.in'  October- Mars' will at that time be  distant but 36,000,000 miles and there  issome *hope that he may have seen  prosperity, Avhich appears to have  gone that far, anyway.

No  trusts will be  busted this month, but-  the regular monthly 'installments Avill  be collected on all fines.     Mr. Roosevelt will    range' into   the   Albertine-  Basin, and the Cabinet will meet under  a   .bush    on    the   President's   lawn.

It is  strange that anything so self-evident should require to be reiterated so many  times before tlie people of Van-  : couver  can grasp  it and yet,it  appears  to   be  so.. The Sunset-  accuses  the   leading   dailies of  Vancouver not only of remissness in-failing to  point out to  their readers  the  loss of business that is l-esulting from leaving this field for  the exploitation    of   business   houses   in  Spokane, but of actual hostility-  to any  marked forward policy  on the part of either provincial  or federal government towards  securing the connection.  The Sunset attaches no importance to  the bona fides of  any demonstration  on the part  of rival railways in conpeting  for a second track down the.  ������������������: Fraser.     In fact it curtly dismisses that feature of the situation  by stating  that the  interests of Vancouver Avould be  best furthered by the C. P. R.  succeeding    in     securing   sole  " right-of-way through the Fraser  canyon for all time  to come, if  by means of that monopoly of  right-of-way  down the Fraser  it should   force   the Canadian  Northern  to choose  the Nicola  and  Coquahalla route   to   the  Coast.  The Sunset's strictures! upon  the Hill policy appear to be unduly severe. At least it looks  chat way to residents of the Similkameen who have become  accustomed to base their entire  hopes upon the Great Northern  to secure direct communication  with Vancouver, and we may  be pardoned for doubting the  wisdom of the course indicated  by the Sunset in asking either  government to display the  marble heart towards the Hill  interests in the matter of any  future concessions they may  ask.  ' No one at all eVefits can doubt  the sincerity of Editor Mc-  Connell when he took his pack  on his back'and' accompanied  an engineer on a reconnaisanee  trip through the Couquahalla  in order 'that he -might the  more thoroughly , understand  what he is writing about. Asa  result he is about the only newspaper man in Vancouver who  does understand the situation,  and his picture of the extent to  which Spokane is gaining a,  foot-hold in the Boundary, the  Lower Okanogan and the Similkameen at the expense of  business concerns in Vancouver  is not overdrawn. In fact  Spokane is becoming for these  sections of British Columbia,  very much what. Toronto is for  western and northern Ontario,  and it is quite a common thing  to meet residents of the Boundary and the Similkameen on  on its streets.  Spokane papers have Vancouver papers .beaten a whole  day in point of arrival here,  and Victoria papers beaten by  two days. Even the Toronto  World has been known at times  to  reach   Hedley   as   soon   as  papers of the same date from  Vancouver, and always as soon  as Victoria papers. Thus Vancouver papers are punished for  their indifference in the matter  by having the Spokane Spokesman-Review, a paper which pays  very little attention to Canadian  affairs, almost monopolize the  daily field for them.

The timber for the new bridge over  the creek on Webster ; St. is being  taken out; by Mr. A. Pleasance and  will shortly be till laid down..  Robt. Stevenson came down from  Princeton on Tuesday. He and Dr.  Blair, of Portland, left- yesterday for  Riordan mountain and vicinity.  R. D. Sproule, whothas been visiting  his brother, constable Sproule, left on  Thursday morning for the coast before  returning to his home in Winnipeg.  The thermometers ' at " the Nickel  Plate were broken a week ago and  hence the absence thrs week of tein-  peiature readings at the hill station.  Mr. Hogeland accompanied Mr.  Kennedy to Otter Flat on Tuesday  and will get his first taste of railway  recorinaisance in the moimtains of  B. C.     ������������������  Mike Serdich who was accidentally  shot at the Golden Zone mine a few  weeks ago, continues to improve and  the bullet wound in his leg appears to  be healing satisfactorily.  Mr. and Mi>. Merrill went out again  on Monday morning accompanied by  Mr. Gor-rie. Mr-. Walter Beam remained behind and is still here to look  after the interests of the Nickel Plate  bond-holders.  Dr. Blair, Portland, arrived in town  on ��������� Monday evening, to meet Robt.  Stevenson and gtf with him to examine properties in the vicinity of Riordan mountain, including Mr. Stcven-  f son's claims on Red Mountain.  - Harry Rose didn't do a thing but  spring a surprise on his Hedley friends  when ..unheralded he arrived in town  on Thursday night last with- his  bride, having been married in Greenwood to Mrs. Ethel Flannigan,  formerly of Hedley.  Mri Wi H. Tapley of the B. C. hotel  Penticton, was in town on Friday, accompanied by L.' T. Roberge and  Adophe -Garlnea.il. They were on  their way to Otter Valley to meet L;  C. Barnes, with whom' they are .associated in an important mining deal.  Mr Madden who.completed his contractual Sterling Creek several weeks  ago ' has-" gone back to engineering  work, and is acting as resident engineer in camps 5 and 6. Mr. Madden  is an old railroad engineer and has  done aiot'bf'work for the Gt. Northern on construction.  W. A. Maclean completed his contract last week and turned his men  over to camps 5 and 6 where the supts.  are becoming a trifle uneasy that the  track may overtake them before the  job is completed. Mr. Maclean has done  welL on his contract and is prepared  to take on another chunk of it when  the grading moves on from Princeton.  Mr. T. C. Gome left on Monday  morning for his home in California,  after a stay of over four months here  during which "time he has been in  charge of. exploratory work on the  Nickel Plate properties for the gentlemen who; hold the bond. During his  stay Mr. Gorrie made many friends on  the hill who hope to see him back at  some future time.  On Thursday hist the second steam  pile-driver passed through on its way  to Princeton. It is learned since that  they were unable to get to work when  they reached Princeton owing to lack  of piling timber, which the contractor  had failed to get on the ground in time  owing to the speedy lowering of the  water in the Similkameen. On Monday the pile- driver gang had to turn  river men. .-      ' '  ��������� Mr. F. Pyman, was a welcome caller  at the Gazette office on Monday. He  was enroute for Enderby where he  will take over again the business  which he. disposed of to move to  Princeton ; or at least as much of it as  had not been converted to ashes by  his successors. Mr. Pyman will be  very much missed in Princeton where  he had begun to make himself one of  its most useful citizens.  Referring to the recent fatality on  the grade, a railway contractor- remarked that it was a very unusual  thing to find as many miles of railway  built and as much powder used in the  building,with as great immunity from  serious accident. This he attributed  in a measure to the fact that most of  the foreigners employed on the work  are becoming more accustomed to the  use of explosives,  and also of modern  Harris Bros.

He has been running his con-J  str action force on double shift, and  while there is a possibility that the  track-layers may reach In'in before all  his work is done, he is sure that he  will have, the main line through in  time for them and will stand a fair  chance of having the sidings as well,  but if he should be a few days' late  with the ground for ithe sidings* no  loss of time need result' therefrom as  the track-layers can find /pien ty/ more  work to do to keep them going.  Chief Engineer J. H. Kermedy was  in town on Tuesday morning. Along  with his cheery greeting was the good  natured, semi-bojistfnl reminder'"I  came up on the train." Mr. Kennedy  was proceeding up t\o river to the  .country above Otter Flat where, it is  said, he.will look up the chances for  securinga tunnel route that wilLcut  off about 35 miles' of distance and  much elevation with ri tunnel something over five miles long. ,This. trip  will remind him of earlier experiences  in railway engineering, find there are  not many of them that have had to  take the rough with , the smooth to  the extent that he hasr-donc during the  past thirty years. ��������� ���������'.     ./K'.  Messis Barrett ������fc Snyder real estate  men of the firm of Barrett & Co. arrived in town on Friday. Last year-  Mr. Barrett disposed of a number of  lots in a sub-division along the Westminster train line adjoining the city  of Westminster to parties in Hedley,  and all the purchasers who have taken  the pains to investigate their holdings  are. well satisfied with the investment.  This year he is .selling an acreage subdivision on Burrard Inlet adjoining  the old town-site of Port Moodyj into  which life has been recently galvanized after the long sleep that followed  its passing-by at the hands'of the  C.

The holes in the sidewalk at various  places in town are a menace to everyone who'may have to make their way  about town after night-fall. The editor had an illustration of it a few evenings ago when he narrowly escaped a  broken leg as a result of stepping into  a hole in the crossing between the  Commercial Hotel and. the tailor shop.  Fortunately the plankrng there runs  lengthways, with the sidewalk,' and  and the hole which was about tjvo  feet long, resulted from the breaking  of about four inches froni the edge of  one of the. planks. Thus one who  may step into it and fall forward has  a chance to escape, but if he should  happen to fall sideways, it would certainly result in a broken leg.. There  are several other places quite >is bad  as this one," and whoever may have  the care of the sidewalks should see  that repairs are .made before some accident happens and a suit for damages  is brought.. ��������� ,  METEOROLOGICAL.  \  General Merchants  Hedley, :-: :-:  B.

COLONIAL    GOLD    MINING   CO.  p.   ������������������. ��������� Continued fron'Pagc One.    *  Of the workings, ��������� the first,  visited  was the long  tunnel on  the.Acadia  and the big open  surface cut above it,  which laid bare the out-cropping. This  tunnel  is   in  over   100   feet   and   encountered a strong ore  body well defined  and   heavily   mineralized   with  pyrrhotite, mispickel and chalcopyrite  and carrying satisfactory pay values.  On the Acacia is the ore body which  has been  traced farthest and makes a  most   wonderful    showing    for    the  amount of work done.   On it is a shaft-  about 100 feet in depth,  all, ore from  top to bottom  that has been sampled  at various  times and never- fails   to  give an  average which  quiilifies'it t.o  rank as high grade.  One of the lowest  averages certified to was that of $26.00  per ton by T. D. Pickard, who is known  to bo one of the most conservative and  cold-blooded    mining   "men.   in    the  country.  . From the   bottom .of   the.  shaft a drift has been run for over 50  feet southwest on the ore body,  but  unmarked  by  any wall to show the  width which is  not known,  and this  drift gives even  higher  values  than  the shaft.  The .principal work under way at  time-of visit was the running of an  adit from the south slope on the Acacia  to meet the end of the drift .-.bove referred to. This adit encountered the  ore body as soon as ground was broken  and is running in good ore all the.  time, Only 90 more feet were to drive  until it meets the face of the drift.  This accomplished, there will then be  on the Acacia, with, this .limited  amount of work, a well-ventilated  mine, with a large ore body blocked  out the known values of which will  entitle it to take rank as high grade.  The third ore body lies between the  two already enumerated and in strike  all three appear to converge. Time  andwork will alone show what relation they .'bear to each other.' The  most important thing to know is that  they all carry pay values.  It is very seldom indeed that any  minfng Company is fortunate enough  to meet conditions as favorable as  this at the very outset.  The .buildings are as.yet primitive,  but they are conveniently situated in  the heavy timber, in the valley to the  south with abundance of wood and.  water at hand. Tents are used to  supplement the log buildings put up  by the former-. owners, but before  winter- sets in these will be replaced  \ with other log buildings to withstand  the 'heavy snowfall.. One log building  is used for a bunk-house,, and {mother  foroffice, laboratory, and store house  while the cooking and messing is accommodated in a large mess,tent.  Two shifts are worked with a mine  forc'evofabbiit-a dozen including the  siu-face-nien,' bnt:pthers will" be added  from time" to time with increased  accommodation.  The managing engineer is Mr. Hallet  R.  Robbius,  an   experienced mining  man,    who   possesses   the   requisite  technical training and   practical  experience  to  make good.   He has certainly   gone   about   his   work   in a  manner   to   inspire   confidence-     He  made an examination of the property  before  accepting   the,  position,   and  after having accepted,, spent several  weeks investigating  local  conditions  before a  man was  taken on  the payroll. Surveys of the properties, surface  and underground,  have been made by  him and all guess work so far as it is  humanly possible   to do so is eliminated.    This  is  the surest way  to  avoid  mistakes.    His duties during the early  stages of development will   have to  ���������cover the whole gamut of mine sur-  ' veyor,  geologist,  metallurgist, .bookkeeper   etc.    and   the  Company  are  fortunate in choosing one who is equal  to all of them,   To the man who must  take nature  in the rough,  adapt himself to his surroundings,  endeavor to  read  the story folded  up in the rock  masses about him and when  this is  interpreted, lay his plans to reduce all  to rule and order for economic operation, the greatest measure of credit is  due.    Such  a task  calls out a man's  best powers and  tests him at every  point.     Sometimes it is a thankless  task and often after he has done his  work and   given   the   mining   world  another dividend payer he is subjected  to  carping criticism by men   coming  after him  who  could not have clone  one quartet' as well.  The Company incorporated to develop anil operate the Apex group is  the Colonial Gold Mining Co, with  headquarters at Manchester N. H.  The care which they exercised in the  investigation of the title to the property as well as the.merits of the property itself indicates that they are business men, and business men are disponed to adopt business methods.  This, then is tlie best guarantee for  the successful outcome of the enterprise.  We still hold a few lots on the Business Streets which we are  offering at the old prices $300 to $#50 per lot, and we  have good Residential lots in nearly every pa;rt of the  town at prices ranging from $50 lip to $250 per lot.  With the railroad-rapidly approaching and new mines being  ... - - *  opened all around lis you cannot expect  to  buy lots at  these prices much longer.  <*  Better Secure Some Right Now, Before the Price Goes Up.
