They have run in a tunnel SO feet with  cross-cut at the end of 25 feet. The  mineralization in the tunnel is (mite  strong at the mouth, and the values  are claimed to he abend 'i or $-1 in gold  and a, little over two pei cent, copper.  This tunnel was run in with a view of  cutting an ore" body outcropping on  the surfaces higher up the mountain  side, and v.;ork in the face of the crosscut gave, evidence of approach of a  change which indicated the close, proximity of>an ore body or si fault plane, I  The Dominion *Fair.  ���������With the Dominion Exhibition just  six weeks away this various committees that have had to do with the elaborate arrangements are working overtime in order to have , their work all  completed so that it will requires only  the pressing of abutton to set everything in full swing on the morning  of Sept. 2<th.  Scores of artisans and laborers are  busy on the site of the 1005' National  Fair and nearly all work has developed  into the stage where finishing touches  are the only worries. The old. provincial exhibition grounds, on which so  many successful fairs have been held  under the auspices of the Royal Agricultural & Industrial Society, have  been'greatly enlarged and with" many  alterations and improvements will', for  beauty, surpass anything of the kind  in   Canada.  The new buildings, which represent  the latest ideas and best skill in architecture, together with the expenditure  of .$o5,000, are now in the hands'of the  painters and decorators whose schemes  promise most attractive results.

They have a group of five claims,  comprising the Jim, Dimtholni, Standard, Surprise and Sunrise. The work  has nearly' all been confined to the Jim  and it is seldom that two prospectors 1  can show the amount of good faithful  work' which they have done this summer.  On the same mountain but farther  west, R. W. Northy is working on the  Beucorisfield group, owned by the.  IvQremeos-Pontiae Co., which he. organized with headquarters in Now  York. About twelve of the company's J  claims-are.on tins'mountain. On the  Beaconstioid a 250-f t. tunnel has been  driven, and on the Gibraltar is a 50-ft.  shaft in which some of their' best ore  has been found. Mr. Northey also-purchased last year from J.

L. Smith, with  the   assistance   of   the   ladies of  the"  Methodist church,  at "The Firs,"  on  Wednesday evening of last week. The  grounds were well  lighted  with  Ian-,  terns, and seats for the audience   were  provided 011 the lawn, the  large  wide  verandah which rims the entire width  of the house being used for the stage.  from which the programme was given.  The "chair was occupied by A.Mograw.  The first number was a march, "College  Girls," by the Hodlev orchestra, under  the .loadoiship  of Mr. LL A. Wright.  The. players who took part wore:" cornet, Mr.Wright; violins, Mrs Rodger*.  Mrs. Lvon and C. H. Chapman;  tioin-  bone. G. E. French: piano,,Mrs.'W. J.  Forbes.    The opening piece  was evidence of the great improveiueiitvuado  by the orchestra, and a foretaste rtf the  general m'usicai treat in store   for the  audience.     Misses Lowndes and  McLean   gave an    insti-uniental    duett.  ���������'Masaniollo." which was enjoyed, after  which the orchestra  followed  with   a  selection schottisohe,   ''Sweetest Girl  of All." The chairman then introduced  Mrs. AV-. P. Rodgoi-s for the first lime  to a Hedley audience,  and  the violin  sojo, "Trovatoiro." winch she gave, far  outreaelu-d the highest'oxyeclation. although the fame which preceded her  had raised that expectation to the topmost pitch.    Tn.Mrs. Kodgers Hedley  has a musical artist whoso equal  probably is hot'lo he"'foitnd on   the province.    In response to  an  encore -.Mrs.  Rodgers   ga-vo   ���������'���������Nearer   My   God  to  Thee," a composition of her own.    Mr.  S. Flemhig sang in 'good form,  "Sing  Agaiii   the   Sweet' Refrain"  and   in  response to an encore gave a, seriocomic selection, "Lucky Jim." A piano  "  solo, "Bonnie Doon," by Mrs. Walter .  Smith was favorably received and Mr-  Wright's comet solo, "Serenade," with  orchestra accompaniment was well appreciated.   Mrs.  Rodgers,   by special  request, substituted "The Holy City"  for the piece which she was to give as  a vocal solo, and  played her own accompaniment on the violin.   To an encore she gave   "Annie   .Laurie."     A  waltz selection   by   the  orchestra   Followed,   after   which   Mr.  Dickinson's  vocal solo, ���������, was given in good voice.  Mrs: Rodgers' imitation of two violins  played on one was a most skilful  per-  formance'and the   "Soldiers' Joy," old  'style, captured the audience.    TI10 :orT  chestra gave the closing-number, "Golf  'Club."  It .was the first entertainment after-  a long spell and came as ;\ rich musical  feast after a long famine. At the close  of the. programme refreshments of  cake, ice-cream and coffee wero.sorvod..  supplied by the, ladies'rvf the church,  to whom the thanks of the audience  wore due.  THE  HOSPITAL.

"      C.  THAT   DISMISSAL.  Prjim'ment Liberals in this riding���������  not self-constituted spokesmen for the  Liberal party, but men whose .voices  are listened to in the councils of the  party, have assured the Gazette not  only that they consider an injustice  has, been done to Mr. Wade in the  matter of the Penticton .post office, but  that Duncan Ross lias done an injury  to their party in Yale-Cariboo by listening to those who have urged him  to do this  thing,  and  they repudiate  the right of T. C. Revely to speak for  them in this matter. One reason which  they give for thus repudiating the  letter which appeared in last week's  Gazette is that.instead.of allowing an  act of which they were heartily ashamed to be forgotten as soon as possible  he must add tmther injury by placing  the party in a still worse position by  the ridiculous defence which he has  allowed to appear over his name.  Aneh t the spoils system Mr. Revely  must be credited with enunciating a  principle, of Liberal ethics, viz., that 9  years of Liberal rule should be considered the maximum'for a Tory to hold  office; and mark the fatherly indulgent way in which he condones the  Government's offence. Mr. Wade  moved the office " without the consent  of tin; Government, a matter they are  most particular about."  Note the self-satisfied chuckle contained in those concluding paragraphs  ���������the parable of the smelter flat. Have  property-owners in Hedley any reason  to thank Mr. Revely for the publication-of that kind of stuff:-    In all con-'  science surely the  town   has suffered  enough tiiis summer from the propagation of  that sort.of  rot  through  the  medium of jaw-wagging without putting it into cohl print and sending it  abroad to the whole province,     In the  first place, the cases are not parallel at  all, for in Penticton both the old town-  site and the  new are  owned  by  the  Southern  Okauagan Land Co., and to  accuse them of wishing to do  up  the  old townsite in the interests of the new  by trying to get the post office moved  is pure drivel,     in the second place, it  would be impossible to lay out smelter  flat as a. townsite and sell lots on it for  it was obtained for smelter  purposes,  and not for town-siting, and for smelter purposes it must   be  used.    In   the  third place   if the   Daly Reduction Co.  had the power to townsite smelter Hat  and tin- majority of the people  preferred to move there why shouldn't  they  have the post office there:- The greatest good to  the  greatest   number  has  always   been   considered   good  sound  doctrine: but apparently it is to bo excluded from Air. Uevely's new code of  Liberal  ethics.  So much For the letter signed T. C.  Revely. There is also a column of misrepresentation in the Similkameon  Star, signed A jax and purporting to be  from Penticton, but the manuscript  for which never saw Penticton. A  comparison of the two letters will settle very effectively the authorship of  both, no matter what flimsy ruses may  have boon employed to conceal; but in  this case the very clumsiness of the  attempts to conceal, furnishes additional proof of identity.  Now the Gazette has made no misstatement of the case, except in one  minor incident���������that of the petition  which it appears had not reached its  destination when' the dismissal was  made, but it is by no means certain  that Mr. Ross had not been advised by  wire of the petition with its purport  and the number of signatures attached  before the dismissal was made.    With  regard to the petition is it not remark-1  abie   that   the   same   mis-statements j  should   appear    in    both  letters and  couched in -precisely the same words.  They do not attempt to deny that  115 j  signatures nut of 125 were on   the  pe-j  tition to retain   Mr. Wade,   but they j  both say that the 115 were made up of j  transients. Now if men who have come j  in then* and  invested   large sums   in \  real estate and intend residing in Pen- |  ticton are not to hi! considered genuine  signers, ��������� then  where   do   the   carpetbaggers come in���������the ones who formed  a lair porcontage.of the remaining ton  who would not sign, and no counter  petition could be got up in  Penticton  signed by Ixma  fide, property-holders  or residents that could get a doy.en  signatures.  This attempt to convey the idea that  it is a case of one townsite against the  other is mere moonshine ' for reasons  already pointed out, ami is deliberately  intended to throw dust in the people's  eyes so as to blind  thein> to  the real  issue.   If the people of the old townsite  didn't want to see 'the-office -moved  why did Stewart & Mathias, who purchased the building occupied  by Mr.  AVade, force iiim out:-    To state'that  ���������'he was induced by the -8. O. Land Co.  to move, the office is to tell a deliberate  falsehood to mislead the public.   The  question of removal was never thought  of until Mr. Wade was given notice to  vacate, and it was only the'question of  the greatest convenience to the greatest number which prompted removal  to the new townsite at all.   To question that the greatest number is on the  new townsite would never be thought  of by anyone else except the writers of  these letters, for the difference is simply overwhelming in favor of the new.  Tn building this year fully five  times  more has been expended in the new  townsite thau in .'the old.   Ajax says  that the hank is in  the old townsite  and no one knew any better than  he  that the quarters in  which the bank  was opened were only temporary and  that the new bank building had been  arranged for. at the outset, and commencement made forthwith to get it  in shape,- on  Main street.- But the  amusing feature of all is that the point  to which Mr. Wade  had removed the  office and where it is now located are  only about from 150 to 200 feet apart,  which proves that the question of convenience does not figure in the case so  far as they are concerned, and that- it  is simply a vulgar exhibition  of the  spoils system.  Another feature which must not be  lost sight of is that to give, the thing a  show of decency and order the Department sent Post Office Inspector Greenfield in to examine, and report on the  situation, but they would not wait until his report was received together-  with the petition of which cognizance:,  would have to be taken.  There is in Ajax's letter an exhibition of personal antipathy towards the  managing directors of the Southern  Okanagan Land Co. The reason for  that may he easily explained. The  managers, however, do not require  any advice from Ajax as to how the  affairs of the compauy should be rim,  but they may have occasion to explain  to the public, how, in protecting the  company's interests they were obliged  to spoil a little game for Ajax.  As for Mr. T. C. Revely, a little additional light may be shed on the subject when it is known that rumor ascribed to Mr. Revely the first move for  dispossessing Mr. Wade, it being currently reported fully three months  before the dismissal, that Mr. Revely  was to have the. pcistoffice himself, and  subsequent moves look as if he has.  with the assistance of Mr. Ross, accomplished the remarkable feat of  transferring something that ho never  had. This is the feature of the situation  that is most repugnant to old Liberals,  who feel that their party lias been imposed upon to further personal ends,  and that the more the affair is raked  up the worse they, the Liberals, are  scandalized.

Town and District.  No teacher has yet been been ' engaged for the Nickel Plate school.  Einil F. Voigt of Voigt's (Jaiup was  ,   in Hedley on Sunday night on his way  to the Boundary.  Neil McKadden was laid tip a lew  days last week with an attack of quinsy.  W. J. Forbes went over to Green  Mountain on Saturday, going by way  of Apex Camp.  Hugh Hunter, Government agent  ���������and constable at Princeton was in  town this week gathering in the shekels for the Government.  Miss Violet Schon and Miss Gibson  oime in on Mondayls flyer from Greenwood. Miss Schon went on to Princeton on Tuesday morning.  W. A. McLean lias leased his house  for use as a school-room and will remove to Penticton to complete his contract of putting in irrigation works.  School opened on Monday in charge  ���������    of   Miss   Colbeck,   daughter of Mrs.  Colbeck,   who     taught the    Hedley  school so satisfactorily last year.  "VV. T. Atherton went over to Midway hist week to see his daughter.  Miss Atherton has been ill and is endeavoring to regain strength camping  over on the Kettle River with rela tives.  Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Cayley and their  son Beverly left for Revelstoke on Friday morning.   They expect to be gone  several weeks before returning to Hed-  ,   ley.  Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Armstrong left  yesterday for Hedley where they will  reside. It is understood that Mr. Armstrong is going into, business with J. A.  Schubert.���������Vernon News.  , Mr. and Mrs. Schubert returned to  Hedley last week after a three weeks'  stay in Penticton, where they were  camping on the- lake, shore, Mr. Suliu-'  bert thus combining business with  pleasure.  Mr. VV. D. McMillan was in town on  Tuesday. Mr. McMillan is well pleased  with the vigorous manner in which  the B. C. Copper Co. are going to work  to prove .up.the ore bodies on the Apex  group which he recently bonded to  thein.  Chief Engineer Kennedy's trip west  was cut short at Princeton by a tele-  grain which he received calling him'  back to Ottawa where he must appear  before the Railway Commission on  the 20th. Mr. Hogeland went on over,  the new route to Hope, hut-Mr. Shields  accompanied Mr. Kennedy back.  .T. F. Royer and wife drove in on  Tuesday. Mr. Royer has fully decided  on running his stage through Fa irview  which will be a very great convenience.  There should be a mail as well, especially sinceFairview has been made a  land office.  The children of the Methodist Sunday school will hold a picnic on Saturday, the 26th inst., on the hank of the  Similkameen near Pinto's. Conveyances will be at the church at 8:30 to  take the small children'and the baskets.  A cordial invitation is extended to all.  The. Labor. Day sports committee  have been using every endeavor to secure an outside base-ball team for a  match on the first day of the games.  The prize of $200 is a liberal one and  should bring a good team. Oroville  was disposed to entertain the proposal  hut finally declined. The committee  next offered to give them $100 towards  -expenses. This will mean 'that they  will get $200 is they win and $100  if they lose. Some arrangement on  those lines will likely be made.  Mr. Hilton Keith, of Allison, B. C,  was in town mi Monday. 3[r. Keith  is representing the Allison townsite in  Avhich the controlling interest lias been  purchased by the C.P.R. The big corporation is going to push Allison anc  make it an important railwny point,  which they can easily do a.s their line  from Spence's Bridge* will come out on  the .Similkameen at Allison, and the  Great Northern railway must pass  through, mi-king it a. junction point.  The townsite itself is a beautiful piece  of ground, making it a most desirable  location for a, town.  The trail to the Nickel Plate is very  inueh in need of attention, as it is- becoming dangerous in places. In fact  the trip, up the tramway looks to be  the safer of the two at the. present  time, Tor the thin covering of earth on  the steep mountain-side is sliding down,  and to make matters worse, some people who use the trail are in the habit  of taking a short cut down crossing  the various legs of the switch-hack, by  sliding their horses down in the dust.  Then* was a man at work with a pick  ���������and shovel fixing up the lower end  last week, but a footing will have to  be cut in the bed rock in many places  before it will be safe.  This year appears to be a repetition  of last so far a-s quantity of water in  the streams is concerned. The (Gazette rode in company with an old prospector about ten.or .twelve miles over  the country from which the water  ���������supply of Twenty Mile is supposed to  come, awl dry creek l������eds were pointed  out that were never known to have  been dry at this time of the year, - or  in fact any season until last year.  There were some of them dry also that  held out last year. Apparently there  is a dry time ahead.  Mr. W. A. Mcl-ioan was awarded the  contract for putting in the irrigation  works for the Southern Okanagan  Land Co. This is a very extensive  contract which will keep him busy for  the balance of the year or more. His  experience in this sort of work enabled  him to figure closely on the cost of  woi-k, and the Southern Okanagan  Land Co. are a business institution  and appreciate close figures provided  they go with good work.  Complaints are made to the Gazette  of shooting out of season. It is said  that a party down -on Sixteen Mile  were slaughtering birds last week in a  shameful manner. The season for  grouse does not open until September  1st, and this year it is claimed that  the birds seem to be two or three  weeks later, which would , have made  Sept. loth a more suitable date this  season. On Twenty Mile lake fool-hen  chicks were seen on Sunday last that  were not much bigger than an ordinary sized apple.  Jas. Hislop, P. L. S., received notice  last week to report at Winnipeg for  construction work on the Grand Trunk  Pacific and on Thursday morning took  the flyer to go out by way of Midway  where he had to turn over his field  notes to the Chief Engineer of the  Great Northern for whom he had been  doing work down in the. Similkameen.  Mr. Hislop's departure from Hedley  at the present time is to be regretted,  for he was a good citizen, but railroad  engineering has always been his strong  Iioint and hence his impatience  to go  tack to it.  Reggie Shatford, the little son of L,.  W. Shatford. M. P. P. was playing on  Monday afternoon near the Hotel Similkameen where they are stopping,  and in climbing a. small'tree he fell on  a hornets' nest and was badly stung  about the face and all over the body.  The shock was enough to have killed  many a grown up person, but he is a  sturdy little fellow, and a strong, constitution with prompt medical assistance brought him through all right.
