GIVE INVESTORS SQUARE DEAL  Extravagant   Boosters of  Unproved  Camps Are Worst Euemies to  Legitimate Mining.  MORE V. V. & E. SURVEYS  There is no industry in existence  Avhich requires as much optimism as  mining, but Ave should be -sure that  the term is not misapplied and, that  nothing be alloAved to pass for optimism that .might more eoirectiv lie  designated by another name. The  right kind of optimism can be as cold  blooded as that Avhich is popularly  supposed to go onlv Avith rank pessimism, and that .is the kind of optimism that should obtain in mining.  The Gazette does not believe in  knocking and does not make a practice of doing so and neither do Ave believe that blind folly .should ever be  alloAved to masquerade as optimism.  Extravagant unverified statements  about any neAv discovery Avill never  deceive the true optimist who is in the  mining business and understands  what he is doing,, but there are many  avIio are disposed to try their luck in a  mining venture who do not possess  the knowledge of mining or of the  conditions Avhich should exist in a  mining proposition to give an investor  a fair run for his money. In the in-,  terests of such as these and in the interests of mining generally it is only  right for the press in mining districts  to sound a note of warning Avhen they  have evidence that there is danger of  the innocent being imposed upon and  another bloAv given to the industry as  the result of unwise boosting of .unproved discoveries. .  At present there are   brokers and  newspapers in   Vancouver and   elseAvhere engaged in Avhat seems to be an  altogether umvarranted   boosting , of  Steamboat Mountain. Although brokers are asking the public to buy stock  in   companies   organized   to   exploit  properties in  that locality no public  official or mining engineer of repute  has yet been asked to stake, his professional reputation on  the  indorsation of the neAV camp and from-what  Ave have learned  from-.some.who have  seen the layout; avIio have  had sufficient experience  in mining to judge a  prospect on its merits, and  avIio are  leaving it severely alone, it does seem  that much  of the boosting  Avliich has  been   done is   altogether   premature.  It may   be possible   that  something  may be found there which may make  it a producing camp but it is unfair to  the camp itself to circulate extravagant statements concerning it in order  to sell stocks to those Avho are unable  to Aveigh evidence and thus protect  theiiisclv.es.   There are plenty of mining properties through British Columbia in  proved camps  that have suffi-  cientlv Avell  authenticated   merit to  warrant   the    investing     public     to  take a chance on theni and the money  is needed to develop such instead of  being squandered in schemes  where  not one of the slightest or commonest  safeguards  to  protect the public appears to have been taken.  Lower Grade  Obtained  Summit  East of   Hope  Plans of a reyised survey of. the  route of the V., V. & IS. KailAvav from  the summit of the Hope Mountains  at the headAvaters of the Coquihalla  River-doAvn the eastern slope to Otter  Flat, a.distance of forty miles are now  being prepared at the office of the  company in Vancouver. They will be  foi-AA'arded and filed at once Avith the  minister of railAA'ays at Ottawa as required by hiAv.  Two survey parlies spent the past  season on the east slope of the Hope  Mountain, Avith the object of securing a lower grade than has, been obtained in the previous year. Successful results Avere achieved, according  to the report made to the chief engineer, Mr. James II. Kennedy.  For the entiie distnnce of forty  miles there is only a small section  Avith, a maximum grade of 1.2 per  cent, and less than ten miles of a 1 per  cent., the remaining and major portion proving a gradient of only eight-  tenths of 1 per-cent. This would indicate that the problem of building  westward from Princeton to the summit Avill not present any serious engineering difficulties and Avill not he  nearly as expensive as had been expected.  The road is iioav completed Avest  from the Boundary district to Princeton in the Similkameen and is in operation, and ten miles of roadbed has  been* graded Avest of Princeton.  It is understood that construction  of the forty mile section fiom the end  of the graded section at Otter Flat to  the summit will be .started early next  spring and Avill be prosecuted with  vigor. Construction of the section  from the summit down the Avestern  slope to Hope may be postponed until  a later date as the orininal survey has  not yet been finally revised, the grades  being steeper than on the other side  of the divide. Tavo years, it is expected, will see the completion of.the gap  betAveen Vancouver and Princeton.

Mining and engiireerimr Record to  hand contains among other matter  articles on the following subjects:���������  Lode mining in the Yukon, special  methods of assay for silver and copper  ores, the Avork of an exploration company, suggestions to purchasers of  mines and niinin*; stocks by one of the  highest British authorities, results of  recent inventions for the reduction of  lead-zinc oiesby electricity Avith diagrams, Texada Island iron deposits,  the First; Thought mine operated by  P.

Those Avho looked forward to a treat  in the "presentation of "Twelfth Night"  were not disappointed for of all the  entertainments that have been given  in Hedley there have  been none that  have amused and at the same time afforded   the   intellectual   treat  which  was  enjoyed  in listening  to this fine  old  comedy by the master of dramatists in all ages.    While  there was a  fairly good house   yet Hedley really  oAved it to herself to have done better,  for there  AA'ere quite a number absent  avIio generally turn out to entertainments much less deserving of patronage, and if Ave are to expect the best  troupes to include the toAvn  in their  itinerary it is  policy to patronize the  best Avhen they do come since by that  means  we may encourage good companies  to visit us instead of giving us  the go-by.   The troupe presenting the  play in this instance Avere fully able to  handle the Shakespearian drama as it  should be given and their performance  here AA'as from start to finish a source  of delight.    Even if their presentation  of the play in..Hedley had been a trifle  off color, Avhich it   did not in the least  whit appear to  be, there  Avould have  been, ample  excuse for it   when it Avas  knoAvn that they showed in Penticton  the night before and left there at midnight to drive to Keremeos   (an  all  night drive) to   catch   the   forenoon  train to Hedley, and then all the sleep  they had Avas   the  feAV   hours   they  could obtain here on Friday afternoon  Nevertheless    everything    Avent    off  smoothly as  became an  aggregation  Avhich  concentrates  effort and attention on  one production,  and  that a  classic,    instead of   dissipating   their  talents  over   a   A'aried   repertoire   of  modern    pieces often devoid   of any  special merit and indifferently studied  out Avhich might enable theni to bring  out  any special   merit Avhich  a piece  might accidentally contain  or  carry  Avith  them  the  requisite   scenery  to  stage a mixed repertoire.  In putting on "Twelfth Night' certain scenes Avere cut and altered to  suit modern tastes and modern social  requirements and to a certain extent  re-arranged for stage convenience but  iieA-ertheless the text of the immortal  William AA-as preserved Avith extraordinary faithfulness and given in a  manner betokening careful study of  it, Avhile costumes and scenery Avere  specially apt as an aid to bring out  the meaning and produce the right effect. Especially avcII taken Avere the  parts of Viola and Sir Toby Belch by  Violet Eddy and William Yule and  neither Avas their any fault to be found  AA'ith the acting of Orsino. Olivia,  Malovio. Maria or Sir Andioav Ague  Cheek.  After all it is no wonder that this  has been one of the most popular of  the Shakespearian comedies and in  the great centres held the boards for  so many nights in succession Avhen  played by great artists.  With the dissolution of the House  on Monday 28th, ths British campaign  %yas on in earnest. The number of  uncontested constituencies on both  sides is taken as evidence of the un-  preparedness of both parties for aeon-  test so soon after the struggle of a  year ago. In point of plentiful supply  of the sineAv of Avar the Irish appear  to have the credit of being the best  heeled, T. P. O'Connor's American  tour appearing to have been partic -  larly successful., The Unionists h> ���������  to make that circumstance tell; ���������_aii 1.  the government, by shoAving . .  foreign dollars are interested in kei .,-  ing Britain free trade.  Evidence is accumulating of a pact  betAveen the Irish nationalists and the  Liberals to giA'e Ireland home rule  after the Redmond model as opposed  to the O'Brien model. Redmond's appeal to the Irish in Australia, in Avhich  he assures them that a Liberal victory  Avill mean immediate and full home  rule for Ireland will be difficult t������rexplain away on any other conclusion  than that a hard and fast compact has  been entered into between Asquith  and Redmond and the fact that Red  mond is opposing O'Brien in Cork  shows that it avi'11 not be the .O'Brien  idea of home, .rule Avhich will, be fol-  loAved. O'Brien is not a separatist buL  Avants home rule for Ireland on the  same lines as Ave have it in Canada.  If this kind of home rule would .satisfy  Redmond he would nut he oposing.  O'Brien's election.       : -  Joe Martin is again the Liberal candidate in St. Paneras where his denunciation 'of the government does not  appear to have made him any the less  popular.  Of the other Canadians Avho are  running Bonar LaAv in Lancashire  seems to be in the storm centre and is  fighting it out on tariff reform.  Several important defections from  the Liberal ranks ha.ye already occurred, the principal cause being alarm at  the threatened total destruction of  the Lords'' veto pewer and there is  also evidence that for the same cause-  many of the Unionist free traders avi'11  regard tariff reform as the lesser of  tAvo evils and no longer alloAV the  trade question to influence their A'otes,  preferring maintenance of.thu constitution to that of adherence to a single  plank like the tariff. Rudyard Kipling  is the latest to point out the danger to  the constitution in robbing the second  chamber of its power to safeguard.  K. V.'S EXTENSIVE PROGRAM  Application to  Parliament for Enlarged  Charter Powers  The Kettle River Valley Raihvay  Company is applying at OttaAA'a for  increased poAvers among Avhich is for  permission to change its name to the  Kettle Valley RaihA'ay Company and  to construct branches as follows:  (1) from Penticton by the most feasible route to a point on the Interna-  tion boundary at or near the shore  line of Osoyoos Lake; (2) from a point  on the company's line already authorized, by the most feasible route, to a  point at or near Allison or Princeton  {3) from a point on the company'** line  already authorized from ColdAvater  river to the Eraser river, by the most  feasible route, to Steamboat Mountain Mining Camp.  ULSTER TALKS SECESH  Declare   Their   Intention  to    Rebel  gainst Domination from Dublin  The pact betAveen Redmond and  Asquith has aroused Ulster to fighting  pitch and a mass meeting held in Belfast passed redhot resolutions expressive of their determination to fight  rather than submit to ,-u home rule arrangement Avhich Avould place theni in  the hands of the nationalist and compel them to pay taxes to Dublin Avhich  they say they Avill never do.

Jimmy Tunis returned on Monday  from Vancouver Avhere he has been in  the hospital for some time but he is  looking very much better than before  -and has been very much benefitted by  tiie treatment received there.  The Princeton Star has some fatherly advice for the Satmday Sunset  Avhich it would be well for that paper-  to take and cease being ridiculous in  its editor's self- imposed role of guardian-in-chief for the Similkameen.

Lee Avho has come: up to  have a look over the district. ItAvas  a little lutein the season for him to  get around and see tlie country to the  best advantage.  Harry Rose's gang have been Avorking during the past week at putting  in the abutments for the bridge OA'er  Twenty-mile' on the neAv road to the  station, The A\*ork in the cutting still  goes on and a large amount of dirt has  won back the honor on a score wffho  holes up. The shortness of the days  and the frozen ground makes it more  difiicult to work in the two rounds  neces.-ary to play a match, and the  slightest sprinkling of snow adds materially to the difficulty of finding balls.  King Kennedy gave his performance  on Tuesday night to a fair house  AA'hich as a Avhole Avas Ajei-A* well pleased Avith the sIioav.

Altogether the sIioav Avas all  right and none Avho saw it appeared  dissatisfied.  The soA'ere Aveather of the past ten  days is causing more or less apprehension as to possible effect of frost in  interfering with tho proper covering  up of the pipe lines in connection Avith  the improved water supply. All the  pipe has iioav been laid but the filling  in has taken more time than first anticipated oAving to the precautions being taken to insure against frost later  on. Dry earth is being hauled and  placed immediately over the pipes before the gravel is filled in and care is  taken that tho stones taken out during the digging of the ditch are not  alloAved to go in again for they help  tho frost to penetrate to" gi-cater  depths than it Avould othei-Avise do  Avith the finer gravel covering.

SiAA'ash  AA'ho avus drowned Avhile attempting  to ford the Similkameen a couple of  summers ago. The Indians' ideas of  such things are hot always in accord  Avith a, Avhite man's conception of justice and the agent frequently finds  himself Avith some perplexing preblerns  on his hands.  The "Joshua Simpkins" company,  carrying their oavii special scenery, a  band of music and fine orchestra, will  produce the great pastoral comedy  drama of that name at Keremeos  Town Hall on Saturday, December  3rd. This piece deals with country  life and people, three acts of the play  being laid in one of the many quaint  A'illages of Vermont. The second act  (in three scenes) portrays Uncle Josh's  first visit to Washington city. In the  third act a sensational saw mill effect  is shoAvn, being nothing more or less  than a complete sawmill in full operation, cutting up genuine timber.  G. E. Emory, G. N. Agent, has been  busy for the past Aveek fixing up the  residential portion of the depot and on  Monday Avent to Oroville to meet his  Avife and children, on their arrival  from their former home in Wisconsin!  G. E. is convinced that the much  vaunted privileges of the free lance is  a myth and falls far short of the real  advantages of home life. Mr. Emory  has liked the Similkameen since he  first came here and has been one. of its  best boosters. He has already been  here longer than has been usual with  our agents and Ave hope to see him  and his family become permanent  residents.  The sensational rural comedy drama  "Joshua  Simpkins". will   be produced  at Keremeos Toavh Hall on Saturday,  Dec. Hid.     The play contains an interesting and   intelligible  plot,  but it is  not alloAved to  interfere Avith the fun,  Avhich is said to be iu abundance. During the run of the play some startling  scenes  and   situations   are   seen   the  principle  of Avhich   is said   to  be the  saAV-mill,   in the  third  act shown   in  complete  operation,   cutting  up   real  timber.    The saAV useii is the genuine  article,   the same  as  usually seen in  large country saAvniills.    An excellent  band   and   line orchestra  accompany  this attraction.    The band will parade  at noon, Avhen  some good   music may  bo  looked for,   all  being   dressed   as  farmers.  King Kennedy, the veteran enter-  tertainer, played to a smail house in  Richter's hall on Monday. The'performance av.-is entitled to better patronage as King had, as advertised, an  entirely complete change of program  including conjurinu' tricks, pictures  and ventriloquism.
