Construction AA-ork on the Kettle  Valley l.-iilAvay Avest fiom MidAVjiy  seems to be moving very sIoAvly,  though the work is supposed to he  "rushed." The steel has iioav reached  a point 15 milies north of Carini, or  shout 70 miles Avost of MidAvay. The  roadbed is in readiness close up to the  summit and the present delay is occasioned principally by the construction  of bridges, of which there .-ire a great  many along the line. The steel is  laid to the site of the bridge and the  bridge timber brought in and the  bridge, the steel gang suifaciiiii and  ballasting the roadbed Avhile the  bridge is being constructed. A force  of about ;i hundred carpenters are employed at Cm-mi framing the bridges  in readiness lor being installed.  EFERMMOIE THESE flgiS  i__j:l_-S        p  -'* .

The special services in connection  Avith re-openining of the church after-  renovation and change of the interior  Avere held on Sunday last Avhen services  took place both morning and evening.  Rev.s Cameron and McKenzie Avere  both present in the morning, and in  the evening Mr. McKenzie conducted  the service alone. There avjis a good  turnout, especially at the.evening ser-  A'ice, as Hedley has never yet managed  to get into the habit of churchgoing  in the morning. The improvement  effected by the changes made has been  most nmrked, and the jirtistic touch  given it resulted iu lending a, pleasing  effect Avhich avjis heightened by the  handsome floral decorations so taste-  fully arranged by those avIio had the  matter in hand and generously donated by Mr. Hairiiton and Mesdames  Wirfch, Mairhofer, Jones" and Clare.  The choir furnished special music for  both O-Cil. ions. - '���������-  As there seems to be a' persistent misconception on the outside as to the  output of the Nickel Plate mine in Camp Hedley and statements arc every  once and a Avhile given out that grossly understate the- real output the Gazette  has come to-the conclusion that it aviII he necessary to present the correct  figures at regular'intervals, until all Avill get the correct amount or something  approaching that. Fa.rlier in the year \A'e had occasion to present the output  in detail to correct ji misstatement in the Nelson Ncavs Avhich placed the output up to,the end of 1011 at $2,500,000 to $2,700,000.  Noav avc have to iIi-slav attention to Avrong figures given jig.-iin in the'official  guide hook compiled in OttaAva for ihe use of members or' the International  Geological Congress which places the output of the Nickel Plate up to the beginning of 1918 at $3,2.-50,000. This we think miiht he an oversight on the part  of the compiler, and.Avhen attention is brought lo the ei ror it avi'11 doubtless  be corrected in due time before any more of the books are placed in circulation.  MeanAvhile isn't it about time the Nelson News had acknoAvIedged its error  of last January and that a correction should be forthcoming'*  Following is a detailed statement of production year by year:  Value up to end of 1907   $1,017,229.49  190S, -14,0_8 tons at $13.85 per ton  588,507.81)  1909, 81,100 tons at $11.58 per ton 8(50,138.00  1910, -14,828 tons jit $12.31 per ton 551,832.08  1911, 57.S15 tons at $11.99 per ton  603,201.85  1912, 70,455 tons as per statement 788,715.Oi.  1918, For first six months    439,094.50  1913, for .Tilly '       05,053.50  LOCAL TRAIN WRECK  Gravel Slide Near Princeton Derails Part  of Westbound Train  .$5,104,372.87  GRAND FORKS' HOT PROBLEM  Doukhobours  Chase Constables  Off the  Premises With Knives, Pitchforks and Rocks  A CORRECTION  K. .1.

FolloAving  the  social   the   people   assembled   in   the  church   Avhere  the choir,  jissisteel by  Miss D.-dy of Kereineos and Airs. Lyon  of Hedley,  presented  a musical concert.      Vocal' solos   Avere'rendered   by  Messrs. HoAve and Barrett Avhich Avere  Avell  received by the audience.     Miss  Daly of Keremeos delighted those present Avith  her renelition  of Kingsley's  "Three Fishers" and being heartily re-  ciUleel    responded   Avith   a   "Lullaby  Song."     Mrs.   Robertson   of   Detroit  captured  her listeners Avith  her clear,  SAVeet,  soprano A*oice  in  her  "Abide  With. Me," and as an   encore,   sang  "The Singing in God's Acre."  -Among  other items deserving of speciiil mention  Avere  ji  hidies'  quartette   and  ;i  male quartette,  Jind last but not-least,  the violin selections of Mrs. G.B. Lyon  Avhich   by many were regarded a rare  treat. Her first selection AA'as Gounod's  "Ave Maria",   played  Avith   excellent  expression jind marked purity of tone  AA'hich  shoAved the Avondeiful advance  she   has   made   in  her  violin  studies.  For ������eneore    she   gave   Schumann's  "Traiunerei",   oA*er   a    favorite   Avith  artists on   the  A'iolin.    The   choir   in  their chorus  numbers sang  in   good  style and reflected credit on their leader and organist, Mr. L. JC. Fan1.   Rev.'  Mr.  McKenzie made a splendiel chairman and avjis never at a loss for something  to say as the  programme   proceeded.

GAME  LAW TYRANNY  To hear some of the complaints in  regarel to the enforcements of the iicav  game Ihav out! avouIiI think that all common sense had been pushed to the  background and tyranny substituted.  No man Avithout a licence to carry a  gun can, according to the construction of some of our game Avardens,  elefeneljiimself with a gun against the  destruction of his property or personal  safety on the roads, by any animal  that roams the wilels. If this is true  it is time some horse sense avci-c liam-  mt'ieel into the heads of the men enforcing the Iiiav. ���������Enderby Press.  Early on Thursday morning of last  Aveek the remains of Charlie Allison,  late chief of the Chu-chii-Avey-ha Indians on the various reservations ad-  joining Hedley, Avere laid at rest in  the burial plot near the mission church  of the O. M. I.  Burial mass Avas conducted by Rev.  Father Conant O.M.I, who has for  several years, past been the faithful  pastor of the band. As there must  have been fully 100 Inelians present it  is evielent that almost every settlement or reservation betAveen Chopaka  anel Princeton must haA'e been represented. The little church avjis packed  full anel there must have been 30 or1  more Inelians outeloors alongside the  church avIio responded to the services  being held inside Avhich avus rentiercel  practicable by means of the open Avin-  dciAA's. This service avjis A*ery lengthy  but there appeared to be no flagging  of interest or attention on the part of  the Indians present.  The service in the church being end-  eel the hell tolled anel the Indians fyleel  out anel formed a procession, carrying  the remain., to the burial plot on the  mound a feAV yards in the rear. The  characteristic feature avjis devoutness  antl solemnity Avithout a single trjice  of the emotional, and the service together Avith the ceremony at the grave  maele a spectacle that for impressive-  ness Avas one not soon to be forgotten.  W.   Simons   returned last Saturday  from   Spokane  and Creslon  in Washington.     His father elied iu ihe hospital  in  Spokane on  August  10th jind  since tluit elate he  avjis busily engageel  in Avinding up the estate Avhich is very  considei.ibl.,   as  his   father  elied possessed of 1400 acre's of land at Creston.  In conversation  AA'ith  him  on his return Ave*. Avere put in possession of facts  in connection   Avith his 'affairs  Avhich  shows t hat  Ave AA'ere misled, altogether.'  in the infornation ' Avhich avjis given us  by different parties anel AA'hich had appeared   to he general in the  toAvn for  AA'eeks.     On .account of such misinformation  Ave Avere led to elo him an injustice in   the item Avhich appejireel in  last issue  in reference  to his children  being left in a destitute condition here  and  also   in   reference   to  his   unpaid'  hills.     Feeling  that an   injustice  avjis  done him- Ave believe it to be our "duty  toAvards hini anel particularly toAViu-ds  ourselves   to nuik'e a correction as full  as possible anel at the first possible opportunity, for the knoAvledge that one  has done an injustice, no   matter Iioav  unintentioii.-il. is not ji pleasant one to  contemplate.   .Mr. Simons aelmits that  he has oweel  bills here  anel to n considerable .amount and still o\A*es .such,  but  denies   that lie   has eA*er  tried  to  evjule any just debt, anel for our own  part  Ave hiu-e  no )-eason Avhatever to  doubt his statement in the matter.

The accident  occurred   in a, gravel  cut near  Avhere  the spur to   the Cement Works leaves  tlie  main   track'.     Two   Hat cars had  been   taken   up  jihead   of  the  engine,  elown near Allison, and a. line of gravel   in   Avhich   Avas a   large   boulder became  looseneel anel   rolled doAvn on to  the track as the train avjis passing.    It  struck  a  Avheel  of  the  front flat calami knocked it off the track, tic-railing  the  second    flat  and   also   the   front  trucks  of    the  engine,   although    the ���������  other  Avhet'ls  of  the  engine  jind the  rest of the train following it slaved on  and suffered  nd hurt, and none of the  passengers  were injured in  any avjiv.  Brakeman Silvernail avIio was ritlingon  the flats  Avas   not so fortunate   antl  Avhile  those  two cars   Ave re   being tle-  molished  he AA'as   thrown off",  but fortunately ' throAvn   clear of  the  Av'reck.  It  Avas   thought at  first  that   he avjis  seiiously  injuied,   jintl a  report Avent  out that his  ankle had   been   broken.  Dr.   Campbell   av.-is  on   the  trjiin iintl  took   the   injured man in charge.    No  bones wvin broken but a. badly bruised  ankle, arm antl shoulder will keep him  a prisoner for a f'orLnight or more. He  avjis removed to the hospital in Princeton, and  on Monday avus Avell enough  to b_ taken to his home- in Oroville.  The passengers walked into Princeton antl their luggage and the mails  conveyed theie. Another engine avjis  sent from Oroville to clear tip the  Avieck but it Avas ten .''clock when the  train reached Princeton antl an ���������hour  hiter than that Avhen it got hack to  Hedley on the return trip.

Themselves  avIio was left in charge of the children  and it av.-is a most malicious thing on  the part of those avIio concocted and  spread the stories Avhich have been in  circulation here. While he had every  reason to he aggrieved Avith Avh.it appeared in last issue of this paper, he  used no offensive language, made no  threats nor did he even damand or  request either apology or correction,  but that is no reason Avhy he should  not have it and as full as possible. We  regret exceedingly that the item in  question Avas likely to place his position in a false light, and especially  under such circumstances.  JUSTICE CLEMENT'S CASE  Change of Venue from Ottawa to Van-  conver Probable  A-Vancouver elispatch says that it  s probable that the venue in the action of the Dominion against Mr. Justice Clement, of the supreme court of  British Columbia, will be changed  from OftiiAVJi to Vancouver. It is an  action to recover an excess of travelling fees alleged to have been charged  hy the judge. It is claimed that Avhile  residing in Vancouver Judge Clement  put in bills and Avas paiel for constant  trips from Grand Forks to that city.  The amount invoh-eel is about $3000.  MacArthur Brothers Company, the  successful tenderers for the building  of the Avestern diA-ision of the Kettle  Valley RailAvay, are losing no time in  getting to AA'ork. Word AA'as giA*en  some time ago to experienced station  men to stay at Hope and be ready at  short notice. Last night C. B. Tinkler,  of San Francisco, arrived from the  coast to assemble a force of men.  Fears Avere entertained in some  quarters, based on guesses made by  Vancouver newspaper men, that the  Avork Avould be begun at the eastern  end and material and supplies draAvn  from Merritt. Such fears, hoAveA-er,  are groundless. Early in the Aveek a  business man in Hoije received a letter from the firm's office in Vancouver stating that Mr. Hitchcock Avould  be general manager on the contract,  that he Avould make his headquarters  in Hope, anel that vrork would begin  in a feAV daj's.  It is further eA-iclent from the numbers of men arming eA'ery evening  that agents of the firm in Vancouver  are engaging men for the Avork.  There are to be no sub-contractors.  When representatives of the K. V..  V. V. & E��������� and Great Northern Rail-  Avays agreed on (he acceptance of Mac-  Arthur Brothers' tender, it Avas stipulated by the tAvo last named interests  that that firm should take the Avhole  Avork directly and sub-let only to station men.  It is likely that the beginning Avill  be made on the east side of the Coquihalla and that, the first construction  camp aviII be established there.  Boring in midstream for the piers  for the Fraser River bridge is noAV in  progress under J. PoAvers with an  augmented creAv. The idea of throAV-  ing a cable across the river has been  abandoned antl the scoav Avill be held  in position' by anchors.  SUBSCRIBE FOR THE GAZETTE  The Cement Works at East Princeton are up against an enforced shut-  doAvn of some five Aveeks or more  AA'hile repairs are being made.  Faulty material used in construction  Avhile the boilers Avere being put in has  resulted in a subsidence that required  immediate attention. The circumstance bus triven rise to a great  deal of talk, and judgement should be  Avithheld until full and reliable information is obtained.

In doing so  Ave are pleased also to knoAA* that Ave  .are in accorel Avith the heist American  papers anel best America)) statesmen  ���������men like Senator Root and journals  like the Scientific _ American. The  Star says;  ���������'When a man or a nation will sacrifice honor by breaking a promise  or violating a. treaty for money gain,  then that man or nation is in danger  of great humiliation, kiss, antl. probable tloAvnfall. To lose the respect of  felloAVincn'is a most deplorable condition, tie.-tractive of happiness and obliteration from good society' >anel  friendship. ' That a great nation like  the United States should repudiate a.  treaty regarding the Panama Canal to  appease the insatiate greed of millionaires and monopolists for more dollars  is one of the most pitiable phases of  unrighteous tlepravity on record. No  doubt it is galling Uncle Sam Lo knoAV  that ninety per cent, of the ships to  use the canal Avill be British but he  ought to be 'sport' enough to stand by  his pledge and Avord of honor. Let  him or anyone read the treaty antl  then see if there is not a definite anel  explicit promise Avhich he uoav Avants  to ignoniinously break. Here is a  section of the treaty:���������  '���������The canal shall be free and open  to the vessels of commerce and  Avar of all nations on terms of entire eqiuility, so that there shall be  no discrimination against any nation or its citizens or subjects in  respects to the conditions or  charges of traffic; such conditions  jind charges of traffic shall be just  anel equitable".  "Star eloes  not desire  to play the  role  of it buttinsky  but it is sure of  pardon if it suggests  to our neighbors  that  close adherence   to   its  pledged  Avor-d is  the only  tnothqil by Avhich it  ��������� can    maintain    its    heretofore   high  standing   among   nations.      Further  there is a certain retribution anil compensatory punishment in store for all  Avho forsake honor for mere pelf.   The  ghosts   of  George   AVaehington   anel  Abraham   Lincolm will forever haunt  the 'White House' if a president should  be fouirel  Aveak enough   to eleny other  nations  the same rights and equality  .hat  he AA'ould expect to receive from  them.  DaAVSon, Y. T., Aug. IS.���������The Canadian Customs Department has-waived  the restrictions on American- gciods  crossing the Yukon to the diggings at  the strike on Chestna river in Alaska,  near the head of the'White river. Such  goods in transit Avill be alloAved to  pass Avithout deposit, and Avhere supervision is necesary to see that, the  goods are, taken,into the United States  the expense of the same will be paid  for by the Canadian Customs Department.  This arangement has been made on  the recommendation of Commissioner  Black and  Dr.  Alfred  Thompson,  M.  P., and  by, Hon. Mr.  Hazen,  minister  of marine, Avhile in Dawson.   No duty  , is" being charged  on Canadian goods  being  taken   across   the  boundary  to  the  neAA* strike.    Many are  outfitting  at. DaAvson, the nearest supply point.  Dr.   D.  D.  Cairne?,,   Dominion  geologist has just 'arrived'at-Dawson from  the neAA' camp, and reports the strike  rich and that the only feasible route  is up  the White  river by  steamer  90  miles to.Donjek-and .-.thence by pack-  horse to the diggings, 60 miles. Large  amounts of gold Were being taken out.  Avhen the party left camp.   Dr. Cairnes  brought Avith him some splendid samples of nuggets anel  coarse gold and  he reports the formation ideal for deposit placer gold and that the same  extends to  the  Canadian  side  of  the  line.  -Mr.- George MacClean, comptroller  for the Yukon, has been transferred  to OttaAva and Mr. G.

Details of the assays, a brief summary of the result of .AA'hich Avas given  last week, are noAV to hand. Only  seven samples 'were taken all differing  in appearance���������the ore is not uniform  in .either character or appearance. A  piece of Avhite ���������������������������quartz assayed $3.3ii,  dark quartz ..'$4.29,. mispickle antl  quartz $6.04, a large piece of dark ore  $6.60; mispickle and Avhite quartz  $9.37, pyrites $173.02 and pyrites and  dark quartz $62.46. The last .aa'O results Avere checked by a second assay.  The total for the seA'en samples avus  $265;i3, an averag. of $37.87. The  highest, value,in silver Avas 65 cents,  in copper one per cent.  After the hanging AA-all is reached a  thorough sampling Avill be made  across the whole Avidth of the lead,  the assay of. which'will-give more accurately the average value of the ore  body.  The resemblance to the Nickle Plate  property is further.exemplified by the  occurance of the high grade ore in  strata separated by layers of quartz  Avhich are themselves heavily mineralized; At the Nickle Plate the Avhole  ore body, strata of mispickle and intervening quartz, is milled giving a  value of about $11 a ton. A similar  method will ultimately have to be fol-  loAyed at the Aufeas. The irs. test  giA'es ground for hope that the ore  Avill-be;.distinctly higher grade than  the Nickle Plate's but there are not.  enough data to warrant an assertion  to that effect. One difference betAveen  the Aufeas and the Hedley Camp property is that in the latter the strata  are horizontal, in the Aufeas they are  vertical.���������RevieAv.

MANUFACTURERS are of  two kinds���������the honest  and dishonest The one  makes the best goods, the  other makes the worst. Each  has his own particular  scheme of life.  The honest manufacturer  aims to make the best goods  he can and to advertise them  so that all the world will  know of their merits.. He  courts investigation. He  wants customers to hold him  to a rigid accountability.        l  The dishonest manufacturer hopes to profit by deception. He produces an article  that will be offered as "just  as good" though he knows it  is inferior. He seeks to make  a larger profit than the honest manufacturer, and this  larger profit is necessary because he has to find new customers day after day.
