For several days previous the Avoatli-  er both down in the valley at Hedley  and up at the Nickle Plate mine had  been clear and bright, Avith sharp  frost at nights, shewing hoar white  on the hoard Avalks in the mornings,  suggestive of slight humidity that Avas  not othcrAvise apparent, for Avith the  exception of an occasional scud scarcely a cloud AA'as to be seen.  Friday night the editor enjoyed' the  hospitality of mine superintendent  G. P. Jones at the Nickle Plate, and  Avas therefore on the ground on Saturday morning to Avitness it.  Shortly after sunrise Avhich of  course is not early at this season of  the year, the air Avas bright and sunny  as usual, hut Avhite mist filled the  valley looking soutlnvard, and a  genial warmth as balmy as a spring  morning filled the. air. About nine  o'clock, however, the Avalk doAvn tlie  track of the electric railAvay towards  the ore bins brought the Avhole valley  of the Similkameen T"o southward iu  plain view. From a point on the  track about Sunnysidos No. 2, the  scene presented Avas almost- startling  in its grandeur.    There Avas  stretched  of the ranges on either side, shutting  out all vieAv of the valley  bottom  beneath and covering  all the foot-hills  and loAver mountains, except here and  there Avhere a rounded top peeped out,  looking like islands.    To' contemplate  the scene avus to i'eel like old Noah  on  Arrarat, for someAvhere doAvn below  there,'Hedley, for its sins,' avus buried  LOUO feet deep under" a. great white  sea ; but just where it might be found  there was nothing to sIioav except the  Avhite crooked arm  of this sea that  reached up the canyon of Twenty-Mile.  The top of this dense Avhite cloud  mass reached to Avitliin about 400 feet  of the ore bins and it avus AA'ith reluctance that one boaided the loaded ore  car   on  the gravity  train to plunge  doAvn into it.   By this time also there  Avas a  tendency on -the. part of the  upper strata to" lift und'scatter, as the  car broke through it into aspaceAvhere  there avus  no floating  cloud,  and  no  sunshine;   for the  upper strata was  still sufficiently deu.se   to he impenetrable by  a single sunbeam.     Farther  down  Avhen the  car    dipped   into   a  loAver   strata   it avus  plain   that Lhe  cloud had hung here all night for every  branch and tiny tAvig  Avas clothed in  silver spangles Avith frost crystals, and  noAvhore do frost crystals take such  beautiful forms as  thosY from cloud  vapor   renting    on a  mountain side.

Wm. Hutchinson, Canadian Exhibition Commissioner, Avho is< noAV in  London, has been notified by the Canadian government to leave for Seattle  as soon as possible to select the site  and make arrangements for the construction of the building. It has been  definitely known.for some time that  the govern men t of Canada Avould participate in the big fair, but this is the  first official information regaiding thu  scope of the plans.  In a letter to President J. E. Chil-  berg, Commissioner Hutchison states  that it will not be possible, for him to  leave London before January 1st, and  requests the exposition management^  to select at site that Avould be- best  aA-ailahlo for Canada. He also requests ground plan;, of the exposition  in,order that the'nutline of Lhe building may be Avorked out before his arrival in Seattle.  The announcement that the government of Canada Avill be represented on  such a large scale as the size of the site  desired indicates, has aroused general  interest throughout the State of Washington. Jt is apparently the intention  to make a complete exhibit of all the  varied resources of Canada, and the  building will also house the display  from the Yukon Territory. Tlie space  Avhich it"is supposed to cover will be  the largest occupied by any one building on the grounds.  The mild climate conditions of the  Puget Sound country���������Seattle never  suffers from extremes in heat or cold���������  makes it possible to construct buildings  in the avinter Avithontany great difficulties and the Canadian government  Avill have no trouble in completing its  exhibit Palace tAvo months in advance  of the opening of the fair if the avoi-k  is started in January.  There are three available sites that  may be used for the Canadian building.  One is located adjourning Machinery  hall on one side and the- Forestry  building on the other and overlooking  lake Avashington. Another is a large  tract next to the California-state build-  and also overlooking Lake Washington  and the third is beloAV the geyser basin  and at tho lower end of the string of  maiu exhibit palaces, overlooking both  Lake "Washin  ton and Lake Union.

Gives Little Information.  Vancouver papers in noting the presence in that city of Mr. Kennedy get  some accurate  railAvay geography  of  the district to date, but no  peep  into  the    immediate   future.       About    a  month ago or  more the same papers  claim to have got Pat Welsh  in   toAV  and Avert; able to go into the  question,  future, past and present.    They claim  that he enlightened  them  on  certain  questions about Avhich the people here  Avould like very much  to  knoAV,  even  going  so much  into  detail   that  the  time for completion of track-laying to  Hedley Avas specified.    But  of course  reporters on city dailies are sometimes  thought capable of dra-Aving  on   their  imagination and Mr. Welsh  may  not  have said all that was credited to him.  Evidently Mr. Kennedy avus taking  no chances of misconstruction and  Aveighed well his Avoids. The Province reports him thus:  "Mr. J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V. V. & E. railAvay, a portion of  the Great Northern system, is a guest  at the Hotel   Vancouver.     Mr.  Ken-  The. choice of one of these three locations will be offered to Canada  through commissioner Hutchison.  Ground plans and all of the necessary  data have been prepared and foi-Avard-  ed to him at London an/l it is expected  the commissioner Avill be in shape, to call  for bids for the construction of the  building within a short time after his  arrival in Seattle.  A novel and up-to-date way of advertising British Columbia is daily to  be seen at the Crystal Palace, near-  London, a resort which, all avIio frave  visited the metropolis know, is visited  daily by an immense crowd of sightseers. "The advertisement consists of  moving pictures shoAving British Columbia scenes as Avell as many glimpses,  of our leading industries in  operation.  Among the picturesshoAvn -ire'photo- ���������  graphs of saAvmill at Avork cutting up  logs from the giant Douglas fir; others;  depict operations in the logging camps-  and the Londoner gazes open-mouthed  at the dexterity and speed Avith Avhich  the immense trees are handled by the*  help of donkey engines and block and  tackle. Next- come the canneries and  the audience is taken through all the  process from the catching of the fish  to the last operation of sealing and labelling the salmon cans. The mines  are similarly treated.  Nor are the agricultural and horticultural interests neglected. The great  firm af photographers Avhich lead all  others in Europe in the moving picture  business, had-its best photographers in  the various parts of the province, this  summer. Some of them Avent to the  orchaids and berry picking, apple  packing and other sights, familiar to  the fruit groAA-er are produced on the  sheet and arouse intense interest  among the visiLors at the Crystal Palace. The sIioav is being given in the  electric theatre and no extra charge is  made and enormous croAvds are seeing the moving pictures every day.  Capt. the Hon. Mr. TatloAv,   Avho is  iioav   visiting  England,  AA'ent to the  Crystal Palace to see Avhat kind of an  exhibition was heing given.    He  took  a particular interest in it and he arranged for the photographers to come  out, and in a general way superintended their itinerary,   although  the  idea  was originally suggested by Mr. Turner, the agent general.' A. letter was  received from  him yesterday by the  premier and in it the finance  minister  says that the pictures are very good  and   meeting Avith  immense success.  It   is   generally considered both   an  effective and an up-to-date Avay of advertising the  country and gives the  homestaying Englishman a better idea,  of Avhat British Columbia is really like  than he could ever gain,  except by  coining out in person, Avhich it is hoped  that a great many will do.  Altogether  the  experiment seems to be an  unqualified success and after the engagement at the Crystal Palace is over the  pictures will be exhibited at tlie   chief  London music halls.���������Nelson News-  THE CHRISTMAS ROD AND   GUN  Tho Canadian exhibit will include a  display of its agriculture and horticulture, its mining resources will be  shoAvn and special attention Avill be  given to dairying and some of tlie finest stock in the Avorld will be shown in  this display.  In his letter commissioner Hutchison  states that the Avork of collecting the  various exhibits has been under Avay  for several months and the entire display will be assembled three months in  advance of the opening of the expos  ition.  nedy's   present  headquarters   are   at  Keremeos,   in  the   Similkameen  district.      Tlie   road is  graded  twenty  miles   beyond  to Hedley,   where  the  Nickle Plate mine is located.    It iioav  extends several hundred miles through  Canadian territory. At Laurier, B. C,  in the boundary district,  it joins  the  Hilllineruuningnorth from Spokane.  Vancouver   will  ultimately be lined  Avith the Kootenays and Boundary as  soon as the  line  betAveen S minis and  Keremeos is built.

It is true they did consent, but in no gracious mood,  to listen to the argument of E.  V. BodAvell who had been retained by the province to present its case and press for tin  opinion. As Mr. Bodwell stated  in presenting the case, he had  given due notice to the dominion authorities and requested  them to employ counsel to represent them, and-he Avas disappointed that they had not  seen tit to do so. In his. argument Mr. Bodwell went exhaus  tively into the question of British Columbia's reversionary interest in these Indian lands given  by them at the time of the  British, Columbians will pur- i  chase and use the Muskoka!  stamps as well as their OAvn.       j  THE BANK OF  12  10  28  WHO'LL GET THE PORTFOLIO?,  Over a month has j)assed since  the general election and still no  move appears to have'been-made  to fill the   vacant port-folio v of  mines.    Why   there  should  be  any delay about it is a little surprising,    for the most natural  arrangement would be  to provide n seat for tlie only man in  sight for tlie job.    That man undoubtedly  is the former  minister Wm. Templeman.    British  Columbia    has a claim on  the  premier for that port-folio, and  this claim, he once  admitted by  appointing Mr.   Templeman  to  the position  some three  years  ago.    There is no apparent reason    why    the    defeat of   Mr.  Templeman by the narrow majority which left him out, should  debar him from again filling the  office,   especially  when   parliamentary usage not only sanctions such a course but points  to it.    That defeat was merely  the fortunes of war.   There are  two survivors it is true���������Ralph  Smith and-Dr. Sloan who represent B. C. constituencies, but  both    look like   impossibilities  for   a  score  of reasons.     The  OttaAva seat is vacant and could  be made available if the premier  would only say the word; and  Mr. Templeman as member  for  Ottawa  would be as   much a  British Colombia minister as if  lie represented Victoria.     British Columbia, both conseiwatiA'e  and liberal, had  reason  to  feel  some   pride   in the fact   that  Avhen Mi'. Templeman formerly  filled the post, he was one of the  very few clean ministers that Sir  Wilfrid Laurier had in his cabinet.     Mr.  Templeman's, home  life Avas clean, and if any charge  of graft could be made  against  him the Gazette has not heard  of it.     If   Sir   Wilfrid   really  wants British Columbia to have  that portfolio he can  make no  mistake in holding on to Templeman as the best available timber in sight.   Laurier in spite of  mistakes   is   personally   clean,  and he should show a  preference for clean ministers by retaining in his cabinet those who  are  clean.  union, only for theuse and ben-  of the Indians as long as they  or their descendants were alive  (to occupy the lands. The contention of the province is, of  course, that as soon as the  lands cease to be occupied by  the Indians they revert to the  province.  Then again the Peace River  lauds and those in the raihvay  belt add complications to the  question, and it is most desirable that the supreme courtof  the province should place themselves on record either one way  or the other in giving an .interpretation of the various statutes  and agreements effecting the  case.  In fact it shows the utmost  confidence on the part of the  provincial government in the  strength of their case Avhen  they thus seek to bring it before  the British Columbia court,  comprised as it is, almost  Avholly of the appointees of the  federal government against  Avhom their case is urged.  There were four justices of the  supreme court who heard the  argument and whether they  will deliver a decision on the  question, after their reluctance  at hearing the argument at all,  remains to be seen. What with  pronounced opposition of men  like Templeman and Ross, in  all matters where the interests  of the province conflict with  those of the Dominion, and this  tendency on the part of the  supreme court to show the  marble heart, poor B.C. appears  to be up against it.  The proposed introduction of j  the closure at Ottawa is a blow'  aimed at one of the fundamen-j  tal principles of the British eon-;  stitutiou, and a menace to the ;  liberty and rights of the people.  Yet Ave are told that the premier of Canada intends to introduce it in the Canadian House  of   Commons   because of   his  anger at being thwarted in an  attempt to   interfere with the  franchise i-ights of the people of  Manitoba and British Columbia.  The right to furnish supply,  and to present grivance before  granting supply, has been for  centuries the palladium of the  people's liberty, which  "Lance and torch and tumult,  steel and gray-goose aving.  Wretched, inch and ell and all,  .....-��������� .sloAvly from the King."  If any pretext could be offered for the introduction of the  closure in Canada, the defeat of  the Aylesworth bill in the  memorablie session ,of 1908  should be the last one; for if  ever an opposition was justified  or to be com mended for killing  a shameful measure by falling  back upon that old constitutional right,  it was when  the  obnoxious clause of the Ayles-  Avorth bill was with-drawn because of.-the.fight put up against  it, and no act that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier may do Avould have the  effect of tarnishing his public  record, in the years to come, as  the1 employment of the closure  at this juncture.  1908  Paid Up Capital ������1,000,000 Sterling.

A novel idea for  helping  on  the anti-tuberculosis movement  is that of the sale of Christmas  stamps.   These stamps resemble  the ordinary postage stamp and  Avhile   they  will  not   serve to  carry mail matter, they may be  placed on all. letters, cards, parcels, etc. spreading the interest  in   this beneficent  movement,  and providing funds for carrying it on, as all the profit from  the sale of stamps goes towards  maintainance   of hospitals for  the care and cure of consumptives.     British    Columbia   has  now a hospital of its own for  consumptives at Tranquille, and  we presume  that the   stamps  being sold   in  the  coast cities  will be for the  support of this  institution.   The people of Eastern   Canada are  consolidating  their    forces    in    aid   of   the  Muskoka free hospital,  and  as  this institution opens its doors  to patients from any part  of  the Dominion, it is  hoped that  "Com pakiks Act, 1897."

Ex-Govt������nor DeAvdnoy was in town  on Friday nighfcon his Avay to Princeton.looking as vigorous as ever, making his friends wonder if he possesses  some secret of eternal youth. As far  back as 1860 Edgar DeAvdney was a  factor-in the public life of this province,  performing public services that will  outlive him. In one of Gosnell's most  recent contributions to his admirable  series depicting life in British .Columbia half a century ago, the story is  told of the building of the DeAvdney  trail and it reads as interesting as a  volume of adventure.

He is doing the masonry  Avork himself, having, ample building  material from rock broken in  prospecting the claim, and has also  abundance of lime at hand Avhich he  has burned for himself from an exceedingly porous character of limestone  that reduces to lime very easily. His  ���������brother-in-IaAv, Capt. Kent, has proven  himself an ardent, capable coadjutor,  taking as kindly to the Avork of mining  as he formerly folloAved the sea.  At present the railAvay graders of the  V- V. & E. are at Avork on the grade  immediately under the steep declivity  Adhere the Bull-dog Avorkings are located and thus development Avork on  tho claim if still carded on Avould endanger the raihvay navvies. . Hoav-  ever there is no Avorking at cross purposes Avith the raihvay men everything being arranged amicably; and  the temporary suspension of mining  is taken advantage of for the purpose  of completing the necessary buildings.

NOTES AND COMMENTS  "' "The Grand Forks Smi takes  a tlie Phoenix Pioneer to task on  Aits quasi-neutrail ty attitude and  in doing so talks some good  horse sense applicable to the  neuter gender species, which it  thinks ought to hike for Russia.  A.J. .Balfour,  the leader  of  the   Unionist    party  in  Great  Britain, has burned his   bridges  behind   him   in   the matter  of  fiscal    reform.      Speaking    at  . Cardiff the other day,  he said :  "It avus becoming clearer every  day at home,--in the colonies and  to   alarmed foreign   spectators  that fiscal reform  is no remote  ideal and all movements and political forces and  the trend of  economic speculation were alike  driving    the'   country    to this  great change, which every man  on v the other  side kneA\T was  approaching."  For a piece of spitfire, all-in-  one-breath, name-calling' this  broadside at British Columbia  by Hon. Clifford Sifton's organ  tlie Brandon Sun, will be hard  to beat.    It'says:       -  "When you size up the British Columbia bunch of socialists,  populists, independents, Hindus,  Japs, Chinks, salmon ringsters,  lumber combinesters, busted  mine promoters, fruit land salesmen, .summer resort boosters,  Dick McBride and- Bowser���������It  is not surprising that the delayed elections went against the  government. Why, each and  every element of the motley  eroAvcl is dead against every  form of civil government ever  kuownto mankind."  REACHING OUT  FOR TRADE  The Fame of M. J. Henry's Nursery Has  Travelled Far and Wide.  As an illustration of the expanding  business of M. J. Henry, the foremost  nurseryman of western Canada, it  might bo mentioned that recently  shipments Avere made from his head  nursery 3010 Westminster road, Vancouver, to St. George, Bermuda, to  China, and to Bellray Castle, the home  of Sir Arthur Middleton, Northumberland, England.  Mr. Henry recently supplied the full  order for ornmental trees, shrubs and  vines for the. Empress Hotel, Victoria.  This order Avas secured in open competition Avith many outside points.  The total Aveight of the shipment Avas  over four tons, piobably the largest  shipment ever sent to a single purchaser on Vancouver Island. This is  only another instance of the development of this great industry.  c  HANDBOOK.  (Xcav Kdition issued March, .1*108.)  SIZK:   Octavo.  I'AGK.S:   1228.
