(Spokesman-Review)  Molson, Wash., Aug. 14���������For nearly  three weeks the V., V. & E. track-laying machine has been at a standstill  on  the east side of the long trestle  which crosses Myers creek. They have  plenty of rails and plenty of ties and a  creAv Avhich is large enough to 'alloAv  them to proceed at tlie rate of a. mile a  day, but are held up on account of the  lack of stringers ior"the trestle. While  the trestle itself is composed largely of  tamarack and native fir, it is desirable  that the stringers used on it be made  of Douglas fir groAvn on Puget Sound.  Orders for this   Avere '-placed a long  time ago,  but for some reason, have-  not yet been delivered.   The material  is expected every day, however, and  when- it armies 'the steel will'-proceed  towards Molson.    BetAveen here and  the  Myers   creek  canyon   there   are  three bridges of considerable size, but  they Avill form no obstruction to the  steel gang if  they are supplied Avith  stringers,   as  all of  the other wood  Avork is done.  The line is all graded hoav betAveen  Molson and the end of the steel. Pat  Hughes finished his contract last'Sat-'  urday and Burns & Jordan and Gallagher are all done Avith the exception of  ditching, etc. Winters, Parsons &  Boomer, Avhose contract lies Avest of  Molson, Avill be through about the first  of September.

IRON BREW  Is the most wholesome, most  refreshing; and most inviting  of all thirst quenchers���������tastes  Mr. A. P. Lowe; Director of the Canadian  Geological Surrey, Visits Hedley.  On Saturday evening -Mr. A. P.  Lowe, director of the Canadian Geological Survey, arrived in Hedley, accompanied by Mr. Duncan Ross, M.P.,  the representative of -Yale-Cariboo.  This, so far as .we are aware, is the  first time that the Similkameen has  ever been honored Avith a visit from  the Director of the Survey,' for when  Dr. Dawson was here in 1877 he Avas  not yet the.Director, but was occupying a sulKirdinate position under Dr.  Sehvyn.  The fact that Mr. Lowe has taken in  hand to visit personally the various  out-posts so shortly after his promotion to the headship < i." the department, is evidence that no mistake has  been made in his selection for the position and that .henceforth the Avork of  the department Avill be prosecuted  Avith vigor.  From the large frontier line Avhich  his force coA'ers, it \Yas: impossible for  him to A'isit each detachment, and  ��������� hencevhe Avas unable to spare, the time  to go farther up the valley, at this  time, than Hedley, but he had Mr.  Cainsell, Avho is Avprking up the geology of Copper and Kennedy Mountains, to come doAvn here and meet  him, to confer on the progress of the  work.     ' .  On inquiring of Mr. LoAve the probable effect of  the   transfer of his department from the Department of the  Interior to  that of Inland Revenue,  Mr. Lowe seemed very much pleased  that the change had been made, and  expressed A'ery confidently his belief  that   under  Hon.   Mr. , Templeman's  department the suiwey would accomplish more Avork and be''-made to render  more value to the   mining- industry  than it had formerly done, for he Avas  certain that Mr. Templemau was'fully  in sympathy Avith  the'j work of   the  survey and Avoiild strive to derive the  greatest possible benefit from it.    The  Department of Interior- Avas too big a  department and taxed too, greatly the  energies of the minister in charge "of it.  As a result, the Geological Survey Avas  always a sort of tail end to the Interior.   Under that of Inland Revenue,  hoAvever, it would be made to occupy  a more important place,  and besides  that, it Avas hoaa' under a Minister Avho  hailed  from   a mining province and  Avas in a better position to  recognize  its importance.     As an   evidence of  why the Geological Survey should be  allowed to extend greatly its sphere of  usefulness, Mr. LoAve stated that Avhile  in  the last  two   decades   the   entire  mineral production of Canada had increased betAveen 600 and 700 per cent.,  the increase  of   expenditure   on  the  Geological Survey Avas only 30 per cent.  A feature that struck the Gazette as  particularly   pleasing   in   connection  Avith   the intei-A'ieAV Avith Mr. LoAve,  AA'as the entire absence of reticence or  mystery on his part.    He was quite  free in  discussing   the- Av'ork   of   the  Survey and also  its aims.     He said  that ordinary surface maps shoAving  only the .streams, etc.,  even  if absolutely accurate, Avere of little use, and  aroiuid Kennedy and Copper Mountains. He-'has with him Mr. Allen, a  McGill student, in addition to guide  and packers. ,'fheir work,- ���������. however,  has been A'ery. much hampered because  of the smoke from forest fires, Avhich  in the. upper i Similkameen seems to  hang so densely in the valleys that  they cannot see across. This fall, Mr.  Cainsell will go over to the Boundary  to examine the rock formations over  there, and be able to compare them  with those found on Copper and Kennedy Mountains.  On Sunday morning Messrs. Lowe  and Cainsell took the car up the tram-  Avay to the Nickel Plate and examined  the formation up there. They walked  down the trail, and found that they  had put in a strenuous-forenoon of it.  Mr. Lowe and Mr. Ross left in the  evening for Penticton and Mr. Cainsell  returned to Copper Mountain next  morning.

HOWE, Proprietor  Abbot Street  When   writing    Advertisers,    Please  Mention the Gazette.  it AA'as the intention of the Geological  Survey to issue sheet map.'! in connection AA'ith  the reports,  from Avhich a  better  idea of the surface  Avould be  obtained.    He hoped to have the Avork  of   the   Survey   extended   to  such   a  degree   that  the   topography   of the  country could   be shoAvn Avith some  degree of accuracy, together Avith the  contours and geological  formation, as  AA'as done in many parts of the United  States.     Then as to publication,  his  vieAA's  Avere eminently  practical.    On  taking stock of the reports in his department, he had been astounded  at  the accumulation of the thousands of  volumes,  of which   the   public   Avere  getting no use, and he had succeeded  in having the charge for these abolished.   These reports are noAV supplied  free to all Canadians Avho Avill apply  for them, no charge being made except  to applications from the United States,  and that   charge   Avas   only  because  Canadians Avere charged by the U. S.  Geological Survey for any reports procured from them.   It was also the intention to publish each year preliminary reports from all outposts, instead  of asking the public to wait until a  full report could be made out for each  section worked ovei\  Mr. Camsell is at present working  (ProA'ince)  Seattle,, Aug. IL-^Tho British steamer Boveric is due at Seattle Avith' a  cargo of six thousand tons of steel  rails, coming'from Nova Scotia mills,  for use in the construction of the Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern Railroad. The rails are turned out at  Sydney; Cape Breton, mills and  brought by the new Hill line to save  duty. They will be held at the Smith  Cove docks under bond until required  in construction Avork, and then shipped north, by rail or steamer line as is  most convenient. Rails for the Avork  on the east end Avill probably be shipped by railroad lines to the interior of  British Columbia'.  In the first consignment seventy-  pound rails are shipped. These will be  laid for the first fifty,miles, or on the  lighter grades along the Fraser River  Valley.' From Hope to a point hear  Oroville, Avhere the heavy mountain  grades are encountered, the new' Hill  line Avill probably put down eighty or  eighty-five pound rails. The Hill lines  in this state are using eighty-five  pound rails on the mountain grades.  Preparations are being made by the  Hill engineers to commence Avork immediately on the Avest end of the Victoria, Vancouver <fc Eastern. -Grading  on the east end has been completed  from Midway to Keremeos, and track  crews are now laving rails from Midway. This Avork will be completed  Avithin a short time and construction  forces Avill be sent forvyard from Clo-  verdale, on the Avest end, and Keremeos, on the east end, to push the line  across the mountains this Avinter, if  possible.  Though the Hill authorities are able  to use oriental labor in.British Columbia, dependence will have to be placed  upon Avhite Avorkers. It is impossible  to get enough Chinese for the- AA'ork,  and the contractors insist that Japanese labor is unsuited for the heavy  Avork.  Hill contractors are eager to push  the Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern  across the mountains immediately.  Railroad authorities want to occupy  their pass beyond Hope before the  Canadian Pacilic or some other railroad attempts to build in ahead of  them. With the start that the Hill  system iioav has there should be no  trouble in this.  Work on the extension from Wen-  atohee to Oroville Avill be started some  time this fall and Avork pushed beyond  BrcAA'ster immediately. Later, construction croAA's Avill be put to Avork  south of Oroville.  The special general -meeting of the  Hedley General Hospital Society Avas  held on Monday night at which a very  slim attendance of the niemliers  was noticed.  In the absence of Mr. G. P. Jones,  President of the provisional directors,  Mr. Harvey Tingley Avas appointed  chairman, and Mr. Frank H, French,  secretary of the provisional board-  discharged the duties of secretary,  tury.  The minutes of last general meeting  being duly disposed of. the chairman  gave a resume of the Avork that had  been done, explaining that in order to  comply Avith the conditions upon  which the special appropriation had  been granted, it had been necessary to  incorporate under the Benevolent  Societies Act and that this had been  done. He explained why the annual  meeting had not been held at the time  specified in the by-hiws- and the imperative reasons for present meeting.  Mr. L. G. MacHaffie, treasurer presented the financial statement shewing total amount raised to be $1014'  and expenditures amounting to $169  leaving a balance of $8-15.        - ���������  Messrs A. MegraAV and E. D. Boeing  moved that all the assets of the Hedley  General Hospital Society, be transferred" t a the Hedley General Hospital  Society, incorporated August 11th,  1906, and that the secretary be authorized .to make such transfer,, which  motion AA'as   carried.  This Avound up the meeting of the  old society, and the meeting -then became the first meeting of the new society* Avith Mr. Tingley in the chair.  The by-hiAVs of the old society Avere  read, and-Avith a feAy necessary-changes .  were adopted as the by-laws of the  neAv.incorporated society.  , On motion of H. D.. Barnes . ;\nd A.  MegraAV, a seal for the society was  adopted Avith the design "Hedley  General Hospital Society, incorporated  1906."  The folloAving directors Avere then  elected to hold office until the next  annual meeting: G. P. Jones, J. Mc-  Kinnon, H. Tingley, L, G. MacHaffie,  A. SteAvart, F. H. French and R. S.  Collin.  Messrs Boeing and McKinnon unwed  that the secretary be instructed to  make formal application to the Provincial Government for the amount of  the special grant appropriated by the  Legislature, Avhich motion carried.  Meeting then adjourned.  MORE FINDS ON GOLDEN ZONE  Another Important Discovery Was Made  Last Week.  BROWN-CAMPBELL  The marriage took place this morning at the residence of the bride's sister, 889 Burrard street, of Mr. Charles  Alexander Bioavii of Hedley B. C, and  Miss Helen Elizabeth Brown Campbell  of Riversdale, Bruce county, Ontario.  The Rev. R. J. Wilson performed the  ceremony. Elsie Brown attended the  bride as floAver girl and Roy BroAvn as  page. The happy couple Avill spend  their honeymoon at Victoria, and Avill  afterward take up their residence at  Hedley.���������Province.  Mrs. Winkler went out by Wednesday's stage to visit her mother at Edmonton.  Last Aveek another important find  AA-as made on the Golden Zone group,  and the discovery AA'as quite accidental.  The OAvners, in prosecuting Avork,  found it necessary to burn a pit of  charcoal, and J. Murphy in preparing  the pit had remoA-ed only about two  feet of earth Avhen strong signs of the  covering of a vein Avere evident and on  breaking into it a little farther a mnv  A-eiti Avas diseoA'ercd running in a  .southeasterly anil iiortlnvesterly direction, and intersecting the old A-ein at  an angle of about -15 degrees. The hoav  vein is about five feet Avide, the rock  being quartz carrying arsenopyrite.  Three samples Avere taken from the  vein, and the values were found to be  most encouraging. Assay for gold  only Avas made. The quartz carrying  arsenopyrite Avent $30 per ton in gold ;  a general average gave $13.60 and the  quartz itself $2.S0 per ton. The gossan  pans quite freely. From the bottom  face of a A'ery deep cut on the old vein,  the new one should be reached by  driving a little over 20 feet, and this  should strike the ne.Av vein at a. depth  of about 30 feet.  The owners, Messrs. Marks, Brod-  hagen and Murphy, are finding in the  Golden Zone group a property that  gives fresh surprises for every piece of  Avork that is done on it.  Mr. F. H.

In  1877 the Geological  ..".$2.iKii Survey was representedr in  the  loo Similkameen, by   the late, Dr.  George M.  Dawson,  who   was  expected, almost single-handed,  to do about a hundred thousand  square miles   of the southern  interior of the province in  two  or three seasons.    In the Similkameen he was able to spend a  few'weeks.     That  he  accomplished much in that time is not  to be denied,   and   the -report  which'he made to the Department was eminently creditable  both  to this  industry   and   his  skill as a geologist, and who can  say how much it ..contributed-to  the   amount   of    development  that has   already- been   done?  Since that time until the present  year,  Similkameen. has been to  the Geological Survey a sealed  book.

The figures given by Mr. A. P.  Lowe, Director of the Geological Survey, published in another  column, should furnish a text  for the papers of British Columbia to hammer away- on, from  now on until the Geological  Survey is placed on the proper  footing to do genuine work in  economic geological research, in  this and other in-ovinees. Mr.  LoAve by diving into figures  compiled in his department for  Hon. Mr. Templeman, who requested them, ascertained that  Avhile the mineral production of  Canada had increased befcAveen  six hundred and seven hundred  per cent, the increase in expenditure on the Geological Survey'  to keep pace with this enormous  development of the mineral resources of the Dominion, had  been only thirty per cent. These  are telling figures and they certainly bear out the contention  that heretofore the Geological  Survey has been only the tail  end of the Department of the  Interior.  The fact that Hon. Mr. Tern  pieman has requested the compilation of these and other figures, is evidence that he recognizes the necessity for a change.  This would indicate that he  means to ask parliament for an  inci eased appropriation for the  Geological Survey in order to  extend its sphere of usefulness.  This is, or should be, a question  of public administration rather  than of party politics, and until  the Minister in charge shows by  his actions that he means to introduce politics into the work  of the Survey, it is proper that  the entire press of the province  should assume that he intends  to keep politics out of it, and  give him all the assistance that  they can.  British Columbia being the  greatest mining province of the  Dominion, stands to benefit  most by any movement calculated to accelerate the development of the mineral resources  of Canada, and money expended on the Geological Survey is  undoubtedly a gilt-edge investment, not only for this province  but for every portion of Canada,  for every province is interested,  both directly and indirectly. If  the mineral production of Canada increased over six hundred  per cent, with only thirty per  cent, increase on the amount expended on the Geological Survey which is supposed to keep  pace with the development of  the  mineral  resources  (but  in  SEALED .TENDERS, superscribed "Tender  for Lock-Up at Hedley", will be received by  the undersigned up to four o'clock (4) p. m. of  Thursday, Sept.

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Richter Avere in  toAvn on Thursday last. Mr. Richter  reports the fruit crop this year not  quite up to the mark in quantity, but  of exceptionally good quality.  Dr. Mathison finished Aip his Hedley  visit at the end of last Aveek and took  stage for Princeton, where he intends  putting in a feAV days before starting  for the Coast. He thought of going  over the Hope trail.  Rev. E. HardAvick and family started  on Thursday morning for the Coast  by Avay of the Hope trail. They took  out Avith them five horses, tAvo of  Avhich Avere used as pack horses. They  intended to make the journey by as  easy stages as possible, and are having  excellent weather for the trip. Mr.  and Mrs. HardAvick will be A'ery much  missed in Hedley, but next year Avill  doubtless see them back when the rest  of the eroAvd begin to come.  NOTICE.

Mr. R. Montgomery and Avife, of  ��������� Los Angeles, and'W. McGregor, were  driven through from MidAvay by Mr.  E. M. CudAvorth, .and remained.over  Sunday night. They Avere on the Avay  to - look over mining properties on  Copper Mountain.  Some local quidnuncs by putting  that and that together have arrived at  the conclusion that Hedlev has been  honored Avith a visit from the defaulting bank president Stensland. Maybe  they're right. Bill Miner's experience  might make the Similkameen attractive for men of that kind.  Mr. E. M. CudAvorth, of the MidAyav  and Sidley stage line, made something  of a record in driving last Aveek. He  , brought over three passengers from  MidAvav, leaving MidAvay on Saturday  morning, taking them through to  Princeton and getting back as far as  Hedley on Monday eA'ening. He  brought his horses in in very fine  shape too, having kept in reserve the  time-honored trot for the boulevard.  D. McBride, the proprietor of the  Bridesville hotel on Rock Mountain,  had a thrilling experience last Aveek  with a dago avIio had been Avorking on  the railAvay. The dago started in to  carve the landlord up. Mr. McBride,  as the Gazette intimated a feAv Aveeks  ago, had recently married a blooming  young widoAv, and before the dago  had removed too many delmonico  slices from."the landlord's person the  Avife came to her husband's rescue, and  in true Amazon fashion, she laid out  Mr. Dago Avith a bottle, but not before  she herself had received a slash or two  from his knife. Daw is strongly of  the opinion that marriage is no failure.  Mr. G. B. Lyon returned on Saturday from the Coast after an absence  of about four months from the Similkameen. Latterly Mr. Lyon has  been up on Windy Arm Avhere he says  a great deal of Avork is going on. In  point of climate Mr. Lyon makes invidious comparisons that are certainly not to the disadvantage of the Similkameen, and as for the existence of  ore bodies, the Camp Hedley man Avho  is used to seeing the deposits of this  camp Avonders at the improvements  that are Tinder Avay in the construction of tram lines in that part of the  country upon shoAvings not nearly as  encouraging as on many here that are  lying  idle.  The Gazette has taken special pains  to learn how far the track-laying had  advanced. Mr. Ross told parties in  toAvn that the rails Avere Avitliin 5miles  of Molson, lint this is evidently incorrect. The despatch from Molson to  the Spokesman-RevicAV, in another  column, shows thai this is impossible.  Mr. Ross reached FairvieAV on Friday  on bis Avay oATer here. Mr. CudAvorth,  liOAvever, had it from a party avIio hail  just come from Myers Creek on Friday  evening that the track had reached  the point Avhere Rock Mountain' road  joins the Myers Creek road. This  Avould indicate that the big trestle had  been crossed and they Avere about  emerging from Myers Creek valley,  and Avere possibly Avitliin 11 or 12 miles  of Molson...  .

Helina Jackson accompanied Mrs.  Nelson -and'children to Spokaim last  week and will attend school' there.',  Rev. A. H. Cameron of Keremeos  conducted th������ Presbyterian service on  Sunday evening ;having exchanged  pulpits wiih Rev.-D. P. Smith. Before  dismissing the congregation the Rev.  gentleman gave some most interesting  reminiscences of construction days on  the C. P.' It/buck in the late seventies  and early eighties when he did mission  .work on ''Section 15," by which he  forfeited for all time the right to rank  as a tenderfoot.  Penticton and Vernon papers are  agitating for a mail clerk on the  steamer^ down Okanagan Lake- to  make up.mails for all post offices now  served fr.om Penticton. It iioav takes  so long to make up these mails that  Pentictonians frequently have to Avait  until next-morning before ' getting  their mail. . In this Avay also the  stages for FairvieAV and Hedley might  be able to start out from Penticton on  arrival of the boat and give ��������� us mail  twelve hours earlier.  The number of rattlesnake kills  that are, reported this summer indicate that the present season is a record year for rattlers. At Keremeos  Mr. Stoess killed que,in his room afeAV  days ago, and last week a fierce fire  that had got beyond control AA'as  SAveeping the mountain side on the  Avest bank of the river beloAv Keremeos, as the result of an attempt to  burn out a rattlesnake that had gone  into a hole under a stump. On Sunday last Mr. Percy Watson of the Gazette staff killed'a big one up near the  ore bin, and altogether the number  that have been made away with should  shorten up the supply.
