"HEDLEY,  B.C.'.  A detachment of Penticton Socialists made a raid on the Similkameen  riding last week by holding a meeting  at Keremeos.  The principal speakers were Messrs.  Logie and Winkler of Penticton, and  R. W. Northey of Olalla, and a branch  was organized at Keremeos to be  known as the Similkameen Local.'  The secretary i of the meeting was  Mr. Peterkin of Olalla.  The meeting chose Winkler to-contest the Similkameen riding in the  Socialist interests. Winkler agreed to  accept the nomination providing it be  made unanimous. How much unanimity will be necessary in order .to  ensure acceptance, was not learned by  our informant, but it now devolves  upon all who wish to see the doctrines  of Carl Marx, with free love and promiscuous breeding, get a boost in the  Similkameen, to rustle up all the  chunks of unanimity that they may  find lying around loose, and tender  them to Mr. Winkler.  Horace F. Evan-;.  The work of continuing the inclined  shaft on the Jumbo mineral claim on  Fifteen Mue mountain, .wits resumed  on Nov. 21st, under ������the direction of  Mr. George Gilbert as superintendent.  Up to the present time, Dec. 15th,  the breaaf of the incline showed 130 ft.  from the collar by actual measurement.  Four men are at work. A , second  windlass was installed at the 70-foot  level before the resumption, of the  present work, and-this duplicate system has been found verv efficient.  The incline continues Id be on the  argillaceous rock which has been previously- described. This rock shows  at times some differentiation* due to  chemical and mechanical causes, but  on the whole it maintains its argillaceous character.  The thickness of these argillaceous  rocks on Jumbo or Fifteen Mile Mountain and the considerable area covered  by them, have caused an enquiry to be  made into their age and the conditions  of their occurrence. ���������  RAILWATTROGRESS  Track-Layers   Have  a Busy  Winter Ahead of Them.  REACH OROVILLE THIS WEEK  No Cessation Until Keremeos Is Reached  ���������Grading To Be Resumed.  Matters have been shaping up during  the past two weeks which enable  future operations to be forecasted with  a. greater degree of certainty than  heretofore. Coal has been coining in  during the past ten days in sufficient  quantities to keep the engines going  full time, but while there is no supply  ahead as yet, there is no further  trouble anticipated from this source.  A long trestle at Thompson's, three  miles beyond. Oroville, held them up  for some' time, but this was finished  oh Saturday last and only two days'  work would suffice to put the steel  into Oroville.'  The next bridge is that across the  Similkameen river, this side of Oroville, but no delay will be occasioned  estimated that the Armstrong bridge  and trestle inay���������.take three''weeks��������� to '  complete, it would, look as if about a  fortnight after New Year, or say the  third week in January, should see the  grading outfits coyer the distance between Keremeos and'here.  No timber for piling at the Armstrong bridge could be procured on  the Similkameen.and-this will have to  colne" in by, ��������� train . from Anarchist  Mountain, which is the main -reason  why that particular bridge i.s likely to  c-use so long delay.  The one great element of uncertainty-  remaining is that unfathomable conundrum, the department of railways  at Ottawa, which still "maintains a������  sphinx-like silence ��������� as to what it is  going to do about the portion of the  route between Bradshaw's and Brushy  Bottom. Over .two months ago chief  engineer Kennedy was given to understand that his' presence would be required iu Ottawa, to supply certain  information concerning this portion of  the route which the department  wanted to know you know, but thus  far he has not been called.  because of it, for the  track-layer on  On  the adjoining mountain  to the ' reaching Oroville will come straight  CHURCH DEDICATION.

Heap on more wood!���������the wind is chill  But let it whistle as it will,  We'll keep our Christmas* merry still.  Each age has dee'm'd the newborn year  The fittest time for festal cheer;, ���������  Even, heathen yet, the savage Dane  At Iol more, deep the mead did drain  High on the beach his galleys drew,  And feasted all his pirate crew;  And well our Christian sires of old  Loved when the year its course had roll'd,  And brought blithe Christmas back again,  With all his hospitable train.  Domestic and religious rite  Gave honour to the. holy night; ,  On Christinas eve the bells were rung;  On Christmas eve the mass was sung;  That only night in all the ye-ir,  Saw the stoled priest the chalice rear.  The damsel donn'd her kirtle sheen ;  The hall was dress'd with holly green ;  Forth to the wood did merry-men go,  To gather in the mistletoe.  'Twas Christmas broach'd the mightiest ale;  'Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;  A Christmas gambol oft could cheer  The poor man's heart through half the year.  ���������From "Maniiion."  A Christmas Tree entertainment i.s  to be given in Fairview on Friday'  evening Dec. 21st, which is being got  up by the ladies of the camp. A sum  amounting to about $100 has been  raised to put on the tree in presents  for the children. This speaks well for  the liberality of residents of the camp.  Miss Cooke, teacher here has resigned aiid at the;,end-of the term will  leave, for her home in Vancouver. '  Miss Cooke is a successful teacher and  has . made many, friends during her  stay here.  It i.s reported that Mr. McLeod, of  Okanagan Falls, will be asked by the  trustees to take charge of the Fair-  view school; ".'.���������'.���������'.���������"'    ,  Snow is getting quite deep on the  summit, between here and the Similkameen.  The Great Northern work engines  engaged in tracklaying and ballasting  between Molson and Oroville may be  seen from here.  west, a trail leads up the mountain  back of Charles Allison's ranch. This  trail ��������� follows the course of Sixteen  Mile Creek, which divides that, mountain from the mountain east of it,  which is again divided from Jumbo  Mountain bv Fifteen Mile Creek.  The series of limestones, quart'/.iles  and assorted rocks known to the  Nickel Plate formation has been found  in place, though somewhat, uplifted,  as far east as Sixteen Mile ('reek. On  the east side of the creek, owing to a  heavv covering of the superimposed  argillaceous rocks, a type not seen on  the Camp Hedley area, the typical  Nickel Plate are not seen but it is reported that they have been observed  on Fifteen Mile. Creek on the west side  of the last .named creek. Observations  will be made up this creek just as soon  as the weather will permit.  It is of some importance to know  for a certainty whether or not the  Nickel Plate beds underlie the argillaceous rocks found on Fifteen Mile  or Jumbo Mountain.  As these argillaceous rocks do not  appear to be in evidence west of Sixteen  Mile. Creek, it may be inferred  Continued on Page Four,  through and lay the steel to this  bridge so as to deliver the material  that may be required for its completion, and while the bridge gang is  finishing the. bridge the steel crew will  go back to Oroville and employ the  time putting in the sidetracks, which  will keep them busy until the bridge  is completed, after which they will be  able to come straicht on without fui*-  ther break until the next bridge at  Armstrong's is reached.  By this time, all grading material  can be laid down at a point in the  lower Similkameen valley from which  it may be teamed up the river without  the necessity of hauling over Riehter's  Pass, and then the route from Keremeos northward will have to be covered with the grading gangs.  The time allowed for this programme  will admit of no dallying, for a considerable portion of the grade between  Armstrong's and the boundarv line is  just a temporary arrangement to permit of the track being laid over it to  allow the work trains to reach Keremeos. Then - gravel has to be hauled  by train from the Keremeos, cut to  complete the lower grade, which must  be done before high water.  From this data, especially when it is  PROSPECTORS* DANCE.  Fraternity Hall was comfortably  filled on the evening of Thursday last  for the Prospectors' dance, and a very  good time was spent. The committee  of management had attended to preliminaries and made ample provision  for music and refreshments. The floor  was in good condition, and as the  company were befit on enjoying them- -  selves they succeeded in doing so.  Mr, C. Vollrath acted as master of  ceremonies, and the music was supplied by Messrs. Hill, Gibbon and  Rolls. It is understood that the lunch  was donated, also the music, and that  the committee had a snug balance to  hand over to the Club.  Up  the Tulameen.  News from Otter Flattellsof a plentiful supplv of game, especially rabbits:  active progress in mining and heavy  snowfalls. So heavy were the latter  that the Nicola, stage turns up ten  hours late.'  On Bear creek mining is being pushed forward as rapidly as possible, and  good progress is being made.    The two  principal concerns   operating   are  the  Similkameen Smelting and Mining Co.  and the Gran by Smelting and Mining  Co.   The. former have ten men at work  sinking a shaft,   which    they  intend  putting clown    to   the   300  ft.   level.  The manager, Mr. C. F. Law is  expected in with five more men  to drive a  tunnel which will  tap the shaft.   A  few days ago they struck the best ore  that has ever been seen on Bear Creek.  The lead is six feet, wide and solid ore.  At the Granby  properties five men  are working,   with A.  Johnson,  foreman in charge of the work.   They are  driving a COO ft. tunnel, which is now  in SO ft.   At 40 feet they struck an unexpected ore shoot with  good  copper  showing.  Mr. Little has bonded two groups  for Eastern people. One is for $45,000  and the other is for $30,000. A payment has been made on the first bond,  the second payment to be made on  May 15th upon which date, the first  payment on the second bond falls due.

D.  interesting   and   original;   a   decided   i'kjo  variation from  the, everl.isting same-  GET READY FOR THE CHANGE.  Judging from the .length of time  that elapsed between the completion'  of the Great Northern, Railway to  Phoenix and the re-arrangement of  the mail-service by which the liew  road was utilized for quicker handling  of the mails, it would be well for people of the Similkameen to begin now  to consider the matter of better -mail,  service for this portion of the province.  It should only be a matter of two or  at most three months until Great Northern trains are running into..Keremeos, and two months is a.very short  span as calculated by departmental,  standards for measuring the flight of  time. It generally takes that length  of time for a. head or a deputy head of  a department to take-.:i matter into  his consideration.  What; we want in Hedley is. to have  the present time of receiving coast  mail and express, shortened up by a t  least a. day; and if it is necessary to  use the Great Northern trains to do so,  then we want the Great Northern  trains to be used. Three days is altogether too long to wait for coast mail.  In fact two days is too long, but in  the absence of better facilities for carrying the mail than appears possible  within the next year or two. we may  have to content ourselves with a two  dav service untii the V. V. <fc E. is  completed to the coast, when a matter  of six or seven hours may suffice. The  Great Northern trains, even by the  roundabout wav of Spokane, can cover  the distance between Vancouver and  Hedley in about 32 hours, and were  the Great Northern to connect Wen-  atchee and Oroville. that time should  be more than cut in two.  Of course the C. P. R. are building a  fast steamer for Okanagan Lake that  may enable them to cut four or five  hours off the present time, but that  would afford very little relief from the  present execrable service. The only  other alternative for the C. P. K., if  they wish to retain the mail carrying  contracts, is to build in here from Nicola at once  and be here before the V, V. & E.  can  possibly lie completed to the coast.  But there i.s the eastern mail to be  considered as well, and especially that  from Spokane and Boundary points.  It now takes over five clear days to  bring a letter from Greenwood. By  usino- the   Great   Northern   trains   it  ness of things, It i.s of the very essence of" their sayings that they are  audaciously apart from anything practical, tor these philosophers have as  much distaste for the vulgarlv utilitarian as; hod Seneca or Socrates." ���������  The McBi-ide Government seem as  perverse in the matter of announcing  a date for the elections as the Liberals  of the Similkameen are in announcing  their candidate to contest this riding.

Now that there is good sleighing
between here and Princeton; an effort
is being made by tiie Daly Reduction
Co. to get down as.irifoch of the Princeton coal as possible... Accordingly the
freighters liave'been ofiered a rate for
hauling" the'coal that will enable them
to make a little more than they can do
by hauling concentrates and running
the risk of getting a load back, with
the limited amount of freight that is
now offering. This week two of the
best of Gillespie's four horse teams
have gone up for coal, and other
freighters are considering the matter.
No special contract is made for any
specified amount, so that the freighters ars not running any risk of being
caught if the sleighing should play
out suddenly.

Mr. J. H. Kennedy,   chief engineer
of the V. V.  & E.  Avas  in   town   last
week, coming in by Royer's stage   on
Friday night, and went out on Monday morning  by   Welby's    stage to

to attend to before  going to Oroville
on Tuesday.    Mr.   Kennedy's mission
to  Hedlev   Avas to confer with Mr.
Milliken whom he found at Bromley's.
Mr, Kennedy is apparently satisfied
Avith the progress uoav being made by
the bridge and steel  gangs,  and does
not anticipate any further   set-backs.
He has not yet been summoned to Ottawa in connection with the question
raised by the department of railways,
as to the Bradshaw and brushy  bottom portion of the route,   bub expects
to go shortly. So far as the commencement of grading   operations between
here and Keremeos is concerned it is
apparent that there is a desire, to save
the contractors the cost  of freighting
their outfits over Riehter's i>ass, but
as soon as the steel has  been laid   far
enough up the Similkameen valley to
permit of transportation up  the bottom, it appears to be a. foregone  conclusion that the graders will  have to
get in and dig. I

Please THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, DECEMBER 20,   1906w.  JUMBO GROUP.  ��������� l'oiitinucd from FirstPn-re.  that they were never laid down, or  having been laid down they were subsequently denuded.  The question as to the age of these  argillaceous rocks naturally arises in  this connection, and it may therefore  be inferred I hat their later age suggests rocks of Silurian date.  There has been much contention  amongst geologists-with regard to the  strata, overlying the Cambrian.'. Mur-  chison's followers insisted on calling  this system'the Lower Silurian, while  SedgwiVk and his supporters mimed it  Upper Cambrian.  Sir Charles Lyall, in referring to  this subject., says that SedgAvick noticed that the, dark slates, shales and  bands of sandstone were associated  with masses of igneous rock, and it is  evident that while the sedimentary  stvata were accumulating, volcanic  action was going on. Hence great  thickness of fcldspathic or rhyolitic  lavas and tuffs were erupted and  spread over the land and sea. floor and  were interstratified with the fossilifer-  oiis sediments.  Associated with, these Canihro-Sil-  nrian argillaceous rocks are sandstones and coarse conglomerates holding occasional minute'grains of iron  (evidently marcasite.)  The absence of fossils (whether flora  or fauna) on these mountains is to lie  noted and the geological history has  so far to he worked out on the litho-  logical'evidence.  The sandstones found on Fifteen  Mile mountain in association Avith the  argillaceous rocks have been found  to hold, .nccasiouly' at least, grits. It  is not improbable, that all. the beds  correspond with the Welsh Llandency  groups, which consist of brownish and  yellowish sandstones with calcareous  nodules, having sometimes a conglomerate at the base derived ''from',* the  crusts of older rocks. ���������'  In this connection it may be.said  that" in Wales the lower Llandency  group have been found to contain a  fauna of 08 genera and 20-t species.  More than half the species pass up  into the upper Llandency strata. The  lower Llandency. beds have a thickness of from 000 to 1000 feet.  If it should be found that the Fifteen  Mile, creek cuts through the Nickel  Plate beds and that these are overlain  by the beds corresponding with the  Llandency of Wales, the supreme importance of further prospecting up  Fifteen Mile, and by this means ascertaining if the Nickel Plate beds are in  evidence, is strongly accentuated.  If the argillaceous and arenaceous  beds on Fifteen Mile mountain have a  thickness anywhere near that of the  Llandency beds of Wales, any attempt  to prospect their interior by means of  shafts would be very expensive, and in  the absence of direct evidence that the  typical Nickel Plate beds are lying beneath the argillaceous and associated  strata on Fifteen Mile mountain,  would be regarded as inadvisable as  the cost could not be previously determined, besides it would not be good  mining engineering.  A more rational and at the least an  inexpensive way would be first - to  prospect the section of Fifteen Mile  mountain exposed by the creek'.and if  any of the Nickel Plate beds be exposed there they will be seen and the  horizon can thus be determined in  connection with other data which-will  be available for the purpose.
