HEDLEY,  B. C.  Grand Union  Hotels _  HEDLEY, B.C.  HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  On Thursday evening last Mr. Geo.  E. French of the Gazette staff, Avho  has been absent a little .'over a Aveek  on a most important mission, returned  from Vernon AA'ith his bride. Mr. and  Mrs. French are occupying the neAA'  dAvelling on Kingston Ave. referred  to in last issue. The Gazette joins in  Avishing them all happiness and prosperity.  The Vei-noii NeAVS in describing the  event has the folloAving:  "On Wednesday morning the Presbyterian Church A\'as filled to the  doors on the occasion of the marriage  of Mr. George E, French, of Hedley,  and Miss Effie Forbes, of this city, the  ceremony being ��������� performed by the  ReA'. Logie Macdonnell. The church  Avas prettily decorated Avith fienvers,  and the full choir AA'as in attendance.  The bride, Avho entered on the arm of  Mr. William Adams, avus accompanied  by Miss Daisy French as bridesmaid,  and Mr. Percy French filled the position of best man. Messrs J. McClus-  key and Stanley French acted us  ushers. The bride presented a most  charming appearance, being very becomingly goAvned in Avhite silk  organdie.  Mr. French is an old Vernon boy,  avIio at different times Avas on the  staff of both local papers, and iioav  holds a responsible position on the  Hedley Gazette. The bride has been  numbered among the most popular of  our young ladies, and the neAvly married couple Avere the recipients of  many Avarm and sincere congratulations and expressions of good will from  a host of friends. They left by yesterday's boat for their home in Hedley,  and the NeAvs very heartily participates in the good Avishes Avhich they  take Avith them for a long life of Aved-  ded happiness and prosperity.

A. IU111VKS, Prop.  Penticton, B.C.  The Gazette  received a copy of the  prize list, rules and regulations for the  first annual    meet of   the Okanagan  RiHe Association to be  held at Armstrong on Monday and Tuesday, Sept.  2nd and Hid.    There Avill be tAvo Avhole  days shooting, open to the menbers of  the Armstrong, Keknvna and Summer-  land Associations avIio join the Okanagan  Rifle   Association,     Some  eight  matches will be shot during the tAA'0  days, at Avhich   sixty   prizes   Avill be  given, aggregating in A'alue something  over $150 in cash, besides 20 valuable  trophies.      Lee-Enfield,    Lee-Metford  and Ross rifles only Avill be used,  and  the rules are practically  the same as  those governing provincial association  meets.    The Okanagan Rifle Association is   to   he   congratulated   on  this  shoAving for their first meet.    It seems  funny that Vernon  isn't represented  in   the   event,    unless  by   individual  members avIio may have joined some  of the other  three associations.    The  secretary of the Ok. Rifle Association,  and vice-president F. .1, Nixon of the  Suminerland  Association    each  have  our thanks for information concerning  the meet.  ASPEN GROVE CAMP.  The largest number of mineral locations is in the Aspen Grove Gamp,  of Avhich several groups have been  Crown-granted. About nine years  have elapsed since prospecting woi k  began in this, section, and up to date,  but few claims have changed hands.  Efforts are now confined chiefly to  keeping up assessment 'work and  Crown-granting.  The Golden Sovereign Group.which  makes a strong shoAving of native  copper, was bonded last March. Development work was engaged in and  a'shaft was sunk to the depth of 100  feet.  The Copper Standard group of  claims, owned by Price Ellison, M.  L. A:, et al., contains copper ore with  appreciable values in gold and silver. Work was done on the Bighorn  and adjoining claims, enhancing the  value of the property.  On the group of claims owned by  Dad Allen, assessment work has resulted in exposing copper glance,  chalcopyrite and bornite. Locations  held by Roberts and Budd, on which  prospecting has been done, afford excellent shoAVings. Some good exposures are to be found on the Tom Cat  group, where several strong showings  of native copper are in sight.  Bates Bros, and Armstrong, Avho  Avere among the first prospectors in  the camp, have several groups of  properties, on some of which considerable development work has been  done.  Disclosures on the Wayside Group,  owned by Larsen and Murray, indicate a wide ledge with copper showings.  TEN-MILE CAMP.  The camp at 10-Mile Creek has attracted attention on account of the  ore exposed by assessment work on  some of the properties. Work done  in this camp during the last two  years has resulted in very favourable  disclosures, both as to permanence  of veins and values of ore-bodies. An  open cut on the property of the  Broomhead Syndicate exposed the  lead, which is 15 feet Avide with two  Avell-defined pay chutes of high-grade  copper ore, with small gold and silver values. . In a former tunnel a  station was cut and AVinze sunk 15  feet on the larger pay chute, Avhich is  several  feet wide.  Work on the CoAvboy claim, owned  by the same company, has disclosed  a vein of ore of excellent indications.  On the Coronado mineral claim a  lead about 12 feet Avide, which seems  Avell mineralised,  has been discover-  A memorial service by Rev. A. H,  Cameron Avill be. held in the school  house, Keremeos, on Sunday, Sept 1st  at 7.30 p. in., in memory of the late  Frank R. Elmhirst.  Miss Armstrong, daughter of J. J.  Armstrong, came in from Vancouver  on Tuesday, 20th inst. By appointment of our trustees she will have  charge of the Keremeos school for a  year. The tongue of good report  speaks in her favor.  The funeral of the late Frank Elmhirst on Wednesday,'- August 21st, at  10 a. m., AA'as attended by friends from  all parts of the Similkameen, and every  home in Keremeos Avas represented.  The casket avus covered Avith crosses  and Avreathes of-flowers'.' The service  at the house and at the grave Avas conducted by the Rev. A. H. Cameron.  Mr. Conklin, avIio acted as undertaker,  made excellent arrangements.  A road is being surveyed from the  Dolphin mines to Keremeos.  Mr. Drury, inspector of railroads, of  OttaAva; Avas here last AA'eek Avith Mr.  Kennedy, of the V. V. & E. An interim licence to carry freight, &c, from  Oroville to Keremeos is to be granted.  Stanley Mattice is night-Avatchman  on one of the V. V. & E. engines on  the construction Avork betAveen Keremeos and Oroville.  Mr."'and Mrs. Malvan Avere the guests  of Mr. and Mrs. R. Elmhirst for two  days last week. <  Mr. BoAvland is an expert budder.  He and his assistants at; the nursery  are iioav busy attending to that Avork.  The Keremeos public school Avill  open on September 2nd.  The dead horse in Mr. Richter's field  has iioav the carcases of tAvo coavs to  keep it company. The odor is not any  better, but it is possible that a feAV  more items of this kind in the Hedley  Gazette, to Avhich the constable strongly objects, will rouse him to give the  citizens some relief.  NEARING COMPLETION.  The V. V. & E. Tracks and Yards Almost Ready From Oroville  to  Keremeos.  Since the return of the steam shovel  which Avas sent to Spokane for repairs  a feAV Aveeks ago, no time lias been lost  in getting the tracks and yards ready  for inspection before being taken over  by the Great Northern operating department.  The long fill to the south of the Armstrong bridge has required a large  amount of material to complete, and  two gravel trains have been hauling  constantly to complete, the rest of the  ballasting having been completed some  time ago.  The destruction* of a portion of the  bridge by fire last AA'eek delayed sonic-  Avhat, but it AA'as soon repaired. The accident Avas caused by some burning  coal from the locomotive dropping on  the ties and starting the blaze.  The station building is a roomy  structure and should afford a m pie accommodation for years to come.  Last Aveek the government inspector,  H. A. Drury, paid a visit>of inspection  and Avas met here by Mr. Kenned}',  the chief engineer on construction. It  is said that as a result of his A'isit an  interim licence to carry freight and  passengers is to be given at once, and  in a feAV more days a train seivice to  Keremeos Avill be giA'en.  FAIRVIEW  NOTES.  visitor here  The Avriter of these notes for the  Hedley Gazette is ready to Avrite in a  Avay that Avill protect the public. He  has no axe to grind and no salary to  hinder him from discharging this duty.  He Avould be more than pleased to  have the Avork done by others but he  has nerve enough to continue until  that other person is ready for the  Avork. He Avill state facts and aim at  the highest standard of morality. If  a man is too dull to understand that  and finds that he is hit by an item, he  should kick the responsible party,  himself.  The " Avhenceness " and "Avherefore-  ed.  A large body of medium grade copper ore is in evidence on the group of  claims owned by Mr. Sissett and  others.  Locations held by J. W. Collis and  associates Avere favorably mentioned  in previous reports, and subsequent  work strengthens the conviction. H.  Stumbles & Co. have a large ore-  body in sight, containing copper pyrites, which give excellent assay  values.  The extension of the railway into  Nicola brings the 10-mile camp within   12   miles  of  shipping     facilities,  with a doAvn-grade to the station.  MILL CREEK.  On Mill Creek, about three miles  north of Nicola, Thomas Hunter has  a group of several claims, gold and  copper bearing. The ledge matter is  white quartz and the formation granite. Frank Lambert has five claims,  on Avhich several years' assessment  work has been done. Assay values  from both properties are good.

Last month alfalfa proA'ed to be too  much for tAvo of Mr. Richter's coavs.  The third crop of alfalfa is cut and  Avill be in the stack this Aveek.  Mr. and Mrs. Turner, of FairvieAV,  Avere in toAvn on Wednesday.  About 100 feet of the V.

Bill Miner has not registered at the  Golden Gate since he played his last  game Avith the guard at the penitentiary, Westminster.  There are many reports about the  strike of ore at the Steimvinder. Some  of these reports are likely exaggerated  but the general opinion is that the ore  is good.  Last Aveek a team belonging to th(e  Park Ranch ran .away, and considerable damage Avas done to a new democrat. It Avas a case of a driver's misplaced confidence.  Nurse Marion Hardie Avho Avas taken  suddenly ill on Wednesday is still confined to her room. She expects to return Avith her sister, Avho is also trained nurse, to Victoria next Aveek.  Mr. Parkinson's part of the survey  of the Okanagan Valley for the S, O,  Land Co., is finished and the Avork  Avill soon be ready for the Usonian expert to determine the best AA'ay to put  Avater on the land.  The pubiic road at the SteniAvinder  is required for the Avaste rock from the  mine, and another road is under construction. The grade on the iicav road  Avill be an improvement on the old.  George Ham says that on his AA'ay  to Hedley from FairvieAV be found a  mountain lion in possession of the  trail near the summit. At first he  thought he had a shy faAvn to deal  AA'ith, but a closer inspection revealed  the king of the Canadian forest. Ham  at once retreated and armed himself  Avith a club. He then advanced to  in tervieAV his kingship. It is perhaps  Avell for Ham that the lion had disappeared, for lions relish ham.  Mrs. Elizabeth Paterson died on  Monday morning at the adA'anced age  of 78 years. She Avas born at Oben, '  Scotland, lived for many years in  LiA-erpool, England, and came, to Canada in June 1906. Shortly after her  arrival here she received severe injury  from a fall and for'more than a year  she Avas a very great sufferer. She  held a high place in the esteem of the  citizens. Her daughters, Mrs. (Capt.)  Hine and Miss Paterson Avaited upon  her Avith tenderest regard. The funeral service in the church here at 11  a. :m and at the grave Okanagan Falls  at 4 :30 p. m. on Wednesday, and the  memorial service here on Sunday Avere  conducted by the Rev. A. H. Cameron.

Frank Oliver in his talk before  the Canadian Club in Vancouver the  other day took for his subject 'Nation  Building," and in discussing it, he had  considerable taffy tor the men from  Bruce. He shmved the part they had  taken in the early settlement of Manitoba and the territories, braving the  hardships and difficulties incident upon pioneer life as their fathers had  done before them. It avus a point  Avell taken and a tribute Avell deserved.  Bruce county in the early fifties avius  a dense Avilderni'ss of forest  that   had  to be cleared before it  could be   tilled,  and the task of clearing   was certainly  no light  one.   for   those   forests   AVei'c  mostly   of   hardAVood���������maple,    beech,  elm, ash and iroinvood, Avith occasional streaks of bassAVood, cedar,   balsam,  hemlock  and   pine  for  dessert.      The  men who grappled with   this  stupendous task AA'ere either young men   from  the British Isles or  Canadian-born, of  either Biitish  or   U. K.  Loyalist parentage   from   older  settlements,   avIio  took Avith them   into  the  hackAVoods,  young Avives as stout-hearted as themselves.      In   thirty   years   the    forests  had given place to broad  tilled   fields ;  the   original   cabins    to   comfortable  brick, stone or frame farm houses, and  the primitive log  out-houses  to   large  frame bank barns on  stone and   lime,  foundations, in the basement of Avhich  thoroughbred    or    Avell-graded   stock  Avere comfortably housed.    Good-sized  families Avon: the rule,  the older members of Avhich had   ripened   into   manhood and Avonianhood, and with   such  fathers and such mot hers, these, Avhose  .services could now be  dispensed   Avith  ; Avith the affairs  of  the.'Vest he had  '.'.'liiJo ' ii'iiple opportunity to.meet the thrifty  ! laAV-abiding settlers from  Bruce and  i to know Avhei'cof he spoke.    ,  One  thing,   however',   he   evidently  did iiqt touch on   and   that  AA'as. the  cause. 'Avhich sent so  many   sons   of  Bruce to -.Dakota,  who  Avould other-  Avise have settled in Manitoba and the  territories.    That cause Avas the com He  pursued  by  the Toronto Globe,   the  great organ of the Liberal party in the  province of Ontario.    .During the Mac-  Kenzie regime,  from 1873 to 187S,  the  Globe upheld  the ��������� government in. its  policy  of masterly  inactivity  in   the  building of the  transcontinental  rail-  Avay to Avhich the honor and the credit  of the Dominion had been  pledged  to  British Columbia,   by  the Carnarvon  terms of the  union   of   1871.    Again,  Avhen the goA-ei-ninent of Sir John A.  Macdonald  Avhich  succeeded   that of  MacKenzie, set about to build the'road  and  thus  retrieve  the   honor of the  Dominion  and  do justice  to   British  Columbia, it  AA'as  the  Toronto  Globe  allied Avith MacKenzie, Blake, Laurier,  CartAvright et al.   of the Liberal party  Avhich fought them  inch by  inch  to  prevent it.    But the most heinous offence of the Globe against Canada, and  against decency, and AA'hich.caused the  expatriation of many good men  from  Bruce, Avas Avhen in its blind  partizan  zeal, in order to raise a'ery. against the  government, it|condenined the North-  Avest land   la-Avs  on  the ground  that  they Avere not liberal  enough   to settlers   and  pointed  out   that   settlers  could, do   much ' better   in    Dakota.  This insane disloyal policy it  kept up  month   by   mouth,     tooting   Dakota  lands and  land  laAvs,   in  the middle  eighties Avhen   the  hiving process in  Bruce, Huron and parts  of Grey Avas  at flood tide.    Those of  the  intending  emigrants from   these   counties  Avho.  Avere of the Globe's political faith, and  many others Avho Ave re  not,   Avere influenced  by the    Globe's   continuous  boasting of the superiority of   Dakota  land laAA's. and Avent  there  instead of  coming to the Canadian Avest  to help  build up their own country. This then  AA'as the part AA'hich the Toronto Globe  played in   ���������'nation-building"; but the  Hon. Minister of  the  Interior Avould  iio doubt fight shy of any reference to  so  unfortunate an  incident.     Nevertheless the fact remains that  numerous as Avere   the  settlers  from   Bruce  and Huron in the early days   of settlement of Manitoba and  the territories,  the same obtained to  a  considerable  extent in A'arious parts of Dakota.
