Crawford Becomes Vice-President  and General Manager of, Important  Daly Interests in Montana  What a patronizing air the friends  of Mr. Taft assume when they assure  us of how good they are going to be to  Canada in buying our pulpwood from  us.  Nobody wants to deprive them of the  pleasure or benefit (whichever-' they  would rather call it) of using our pulp-  wood, but there is one little formality  we are mean enough to suggest having them obserye before they take too  much, of it and that is that they build  over here the paper mills which aie to  make the pulp wood up into paper.  Canada in'fact has a special preference  for having that little ceremony of the  paper-making performed on this side  of the line in order that Canadians  may procure that much more employment., and Canadian farmers have that  ninny more operatives  to grow produce for and feed.  It was the same way when the Liberal government of Ontario saw no  harm in having Michigan lumbeimen  come over to northern Ontario: buy  enormous timber limits: bring Michi  gan lumberjacks over to do the logging -and employ Michigan tugs to  tow the rafts of saw logs acros-s the  lakes for Michigan sawmills to convert into lumber while Canadian mills  were shutting down because they  couldn't find a sufficient market for  their lumber in Canada and the trade  with Great Britain had not yet been  established. But the Conservative opposition insisted that the sawing be  done on the north side of the 49th  parallel and to that end proposed putting an export duty on saw logs. They,  stumped the country to. that effect  and brought pressure to bear so strongly  that Hon.  Geo.

MASTERS  DENTIST  Will be at Home office in Oroville, 1st  to 14th of each month.  Office  011  North   Main   Street.  The Hedley friends of Mr. C. A:  Crawford wilL.be- pleased to learn of  the well-deserved promotion which is  announced in the Western News, published in Hamilton, Montana:  C. A. Crawford, who. for nine years  has been secretary and auditor of the  companies controlled by,Marcus Daly  estate, was yesterday elected vice-  president, treasurer and manager of  the Bitter Root Stock farm, the Ravalli Land & irrigation company, the  Lake view Land ������fc Cattle company,  and president and treasurer of the  Hamilton Flour Mill company, succeeded P. J. Shannon in each of the  positions. The change in .management came at a meeting of the directors of the company held at the stock  farm office and followed Mr. Shannons  resignation. Mr. Crawford-assumed  charge to-day.  The officers of the various companies as now constituted are as follows; Marcus Daly, president: C, A.  Crawford, vice-president and treasurer; \V. A. MeElroy, secretary..  Mr. Crawford had no announcement  of policy to make when seen at the  stock farm office this 'morning. He  contented himself with the statement  thattheie would be work enough for  hi 111 to do and that he proposed to do  it.  gan mills had to move across the lake  onto the Canadian side and the lumber-woods of northern Ontario became  hives of industry. .  Just like the blind bat Liberals of  Ontario in the days of Mowat, Hardy  and Ross who saw no harm to Canada  in allowing the Canadian sawlogs to  be taken over to Michigan, so your  modern day Liberal can see no harm  in reciprocity which proposes to do  the same with our pulpwood as they  were doing with the saw logs.  Now paper is better than pulpwood,  but the Gazette contends there is  nothing small about the conservatives  who would rather give Mr. Taft's  friends something handsome when  they are at it, and are willing to supply them with Canadian-made paper-  in preference to'Canadian-grown pulpwood.  Victoria, li. C, Aug. (������.���������In view of  the approach of the hunting season  throughout British Columbia, attention is directed to the fact that the  use of automatic guns is illegal in any  part or district of British Columbia.  The concensus of opinion appears to  be- that thei use of automatic guns it  essentially unsportsmanlike, and fortius reason as well a* for the desirable  protection of the diminishing numbers '  of ducks and geese frequenting provincial waters,.the action taken by the  government will be approved by all  true sportsmen--oven by those who  may perchance find it necessary to ,  make changes in their arsenals.  By a second order-in council passed  at the same'limo a* that making the  use of automatic.guns a. statutory offence, a closed season for mountain  sheep was declared during the ensuing  two years, in the districts of Yale,  Okanagan and Similkameen, and an  additional year of immunity granted  the wapiti in all parts of the mainland  as from the 1st proximo.  .Provincial executive regulations for  1911-12 an: largely based upon specific  and practical reports from game warden Bryan Williams and- his suboidi- "  nates. The older adopted provides'  chiefiv for the season's sport' on the  Mainland, as will be noted by the following decisions:  That blue and willow grouse and  ptarmigan may be shot ��������� throughout  that portion of the-mainland not induced in the Femie, Cianbrook, Richmond, Dewdney, Delta, and Chilli-  wack electoral districts and that portion of Kent municipality situated in  the Yale electric district, between the  1st day of September. 1911, and the  31st day of December, 1910, both days  inclusive.  and what was the result."     1'hc- MiJhi- Uh07throughout the Mainland and the  ���������t#'^?'ii.**i���������^-~������-' f/t-i  TULAMEEN   TOWNSITE  Lots Belonging to Crown Will Be Offered For Sale by Auction on  August 28  In consequence of the rapid development of the town of Tulameen and the  demand for building sites in the town-  site, it has been decided to offer for  sale by auction on the 28th inst, at  Tulameen, the lots in the townsite  belonging to the Crown.

Midway.  The  sin-din   is  not a  large  one   and  drains a very  small   basin.     In   fact  there are several   tributaries of the Siinilkanieen   that are larger- and drain  much  larger areas.    It  is about fifty  mile.-: from   the  Siinilkanieen   as   the  crow  flies.    This  information   is supplied  sri-ati.s   by   the Hedley   Gazette  which in, this case is   '���������Johnny on the  spot" and should know better than the  ���������'Engineering and   Mining   Journal,"  so please  Mr. Provincial Mineralogist  be''more  careful  of    your- authority  next time.

British Coluiil-  iiia was her theme and in the address  < 'nnada.'.s relation to the empire came  ip. Miss Cameron frankly told her  .-uidieiice that she had many limes  been asked whether Canada was loyal  to England. ' To' that inquiry she  would now answer '"Xo. Canada is  loyal .to the British Empire.' Let England look well to it that she too is  loyal to the empire."  Tlie  trouble  with  England  is that  she is always  so.much engrossed with  little  backyard   issues that in Canada  are   attended   to   by    the   municipal  councils  and the weightier matters of  '���������mpire   are  obscured   by   these, when  questions   affecting    the    I-'mpire   at  large should  have,  the  undivided attention   of the  people  in   tlie general  elections.    The Radicals among whom  lhe "little  Euglander"' sentiment   has  always   been  .-trongest  are   eternally  occupied   by   the^e   petty domestic issues.     Some   of  these   Radicals  who  emigrate   lo   the.  colonies   manage   to  get  their  scope  of   vision   broadened  but others are proof against even  this  .mil  they earn   the  contempt of  the  Lryader colonials among  whom they  have   taken   up   their   abode  by continuing to repeat parrot-like the petty  doctrines of domestic radicalism which  they will not allow himselves to forget  but keep  green   in their memories   by  the constant importation  of  Radical  newspapers.  Had   British   politics   for   the   past  twenty years been   pursuing a course.  along  imperial lines   instead of   being  dragged in the mire of petty domestic  issues and catering to socialistic dema-  goguery  Canadians would  be spared  to-day   the humiliation as well as the  grave danger of having an issue like  the present   reciprocity   pact   thrust  upon  them and  been  spared also the  annoyance of  having radical   papers  stuck  under the   noses   of Canadian  electors  containing  articles indorsing  the Canada-United States reciprocity  pact written by scatter-brain meddlers  who don't know what they are talking  about.  publish the output of the Nickel Plate  group of mines owned   by tbe^Hedley  Gold   Mining  Company for  the year  1910 as appearing  on   page 7 of then-  last annual   report sent out to stockholders  of the  company.     In the report of  progress of the camp the Provincial' Mineralogist   appends   a   note  which  consists of a clipping from the  Engineering  and   Mining Journal   in  which    prominence   is   given   to   the  value per tun of the ore which it places  at $11.09 per  ton,  and  the public  on  reading  it carelessly would   conclude  that to be  the assay value  which it is  not as will be seen from company's report of .monthly output.

A moving picture show owned in  Oroville showed two nights in Hedley  this week,, the pictures, being very  clear and the subjects amusing. A feature of the entertainments was the  dancing in costume by Kathleen  Mayo. The shortness of notice affect.-  ed the attendance.  K. C. McDonald, formerly practising dentistry in Grand Forks and Vernon and latterly in-the employ of the  Dominion government connected with  .Indian agencies, was the choice of the  Liberal convention on Monday. , It  will therefore be between him and  Martin Burrell for it and the Conservatives are well suited with the choice  of .their opponents.  Hedley conservatives are not represented at the Conservative convention  being held in Kamloops to-day. Tho  letter to tlie secretary from the central association found its way into the  wrong camp because the word "Liberal" in the name Liberal-Conservative  appeared in the address. The letter-  was opened, allegedly by mistake, and  was impounded until the fifth day  after its receipt and not returned to  the post office until the post mistress  had to go after it and by that time it  was too late to call a meeting for the  appointment of delegates. Nothing  could then be done except to despatch  a letter to Mr. Burrell explaining the  omission and arrange for having it  taken across by auto to . be posted in  Penticton, for the last mail had gone  which would enable a letter to reach  Kamloops in time if posted here to go  by the regular mail routes. We do  not wish to be understood as blaming  the local Liberal association and are  inclined to believe that very few of  them knew of it at all. But as for the-  one who is responsible, the. envelope u?  here to tell its own tale and it is a rather a funny tale it can tell.  Hedley and other Siinilkanieen  points can thank tlie coal strike* in  the Crowsriest for securing for them  the visitof the Willard show- which  is;billed;for;hei-e On the 2Sth of August. Air. B; P.

Wi th h igh-pr iced arti s ts  such as they carry they will consider  themselves lucky if they pay expenses  .while "marking time" in some of the  towns they are billing.  A-pair.;,of rolleri cores, shipped by  Great Northern to a "firm in Winnipeg  to have new ink rollers cast thereon,  have as yet failed to show up although  .the   shipment was   made   about   the  middle" of June.     Thus it will be seen  that it is not only in the construction  department that institution is disposed  to be slow-bellied.     These  particular  rollers now two  months overdue are  badly needed.    If there is   anything  well enough versed in the ills pertaining to great transportation companies  who   can   suggest  some   commercial  cathartic by which this shipment may  be more speedily delivered we would  like to hear from them.  To depend on  having  the railway  company replace  the articles lost with  the moral certainty  that any application  to  that  end would take at least two and a half  years to get through  the correspondence stage is quite out of the question  rind it begins to   look as if we had better take the shorter and more expeditious method "of bearing the loss ourselves and replacing them at our own  expense.

Thomson, V.S., Dominion Veterinary Inspector arrived in town last  week to enter upon his duties here.  He has reuted Mr. Cooper's house west  of town, arid expects his wife and family to join hirii. here shortly. The absence of a Veterinary Inspector- at this  outport has always wrought a hardship orr immigrants from across the  line.   This will now be removed.  Two lawn socials are slated for  Keremeos. One at the residence of  J. A. Brown on Friday afternoon and  evening next, ISth inst, from three to  nine o'clock: tennis, games and refreshments: admission 25c; proceeds in  aid of the fund to defray the improvements on the Kerenieos Church.

The discriminating , playgoers of  Keremeos will no doubt greet the announcement of the early appearance  of the Juvenile Bostonians, with great  pleasure, as this is an attraction which  can always be depended upon to shove  a marked improvement each year,  which is perhaps the reason for its  perennial success with the theatrical  connoiseurs of the west and its enviable reputation with discerning critics  the country over. The members of the  company are now rehearsing for the  coming season and judging from the  showing made at the rehearsals, this  season's organization will truly be better than ever.  The Great Willard, man of Mystery  Co. will appear at Richter's Hall, Keremeos Centre, on Saturday night, August 20. This, attraction is one of the  best-on the road and deserves a full  house. In addition to the show which  lasts two hours the pictures of the  famous Jeffries-Johnson fight will.be  shown. These are the pictures taken  at Reno, Nevada, on July 4th, 1910. A  good show is assured all those who attend.  ���������Fii-e wardens Coulthai-t, of Princeton, Nicholson, of Fairview, and Good-  chap, of Green Mountain met here On  Saturday and discussed the boundaries  Of their relative districts. So far this  season these lire war dens have had  practically nothing, in the way of a  fire, to deal with, which goes to show  that residents ofBritish Columbia are  beginning to appreciate the serious  consequences which icsult from the  careless use of bush fires and are respecting the laws framed to cover the  same.  j; A.
