Write me about your claims  The people of Hedley are becoming  accustomed to the quarterly announcement of a three per cent dividend on the part of the Hedley Gold  Mining Co., from the operations on  the Nickel Plate and Sutinysides properties., but in view of, the heavy outlay this year in development and for  new equipment they would not have  been surprised to see the dividend cut  a bit or even passed altogether, but  when head office aannoimces that not  only is the usual three per cent quarterly to be paid but an additional div-  idend of two per cent, the moral effect  of such an announcement comes as a  sort of Christmas box to all, whether  they own stock or not.  This additional two per cent makes  thts dividend for the year 14% which  ,is,.extraordinary in the face of the  heavy expenditures foi- neAV equipment.

Price Ellison, minister of finance in  British Columbia, is at present in England on provincial business but not for  money-borrowing purposes. He Avas  present at the Royal Horticultural  Show and had the satisfaction of seeing the triumph of British Columbia  fruit at the exhibition.  ���������With' other celebrities he spoke at  the Canadian club dinner in London  and an associa ted press despatch has  the following concerning his speech.  "The toast to the Dominion was responded  to by Price Ellison Avho said  that he was a, Manchester  man   by  birth,  a Canadian  by adoption and a  Chairiberlainite   and   imperialist   by  choice.      Amid   much  laughter   and  cheering he stated that Canada wanted the old country to "get a move on.'  "We don't want to have any dealings  Avith  the United States,  which made  Britain a dumping ground," he added.  The preference  for Great Britain had  been  endorsed by all parties and preferential trade was sure to conic. . The  British   isles   he   stated,   dropped   in  Canada would   need   an   exploration  party to find them.   Englishmen don't  realize  that Canada will  soon have a  population  greater than  the  United  States.   Mr. Ellison devoted the greater  part of his   remarks  to  Canadian  politics and the  resources of the country.  "The toast of the guests was responded to by Judge Gratithain, who  on a recent visit to Canada said that  he had expected to see a colony and  had found a nation more united and  loyal than the United Kindgom Avhich  should adopt somewhat of a more congenial tone towards the Dominion. He  deplored the ignorant action of British  statesmen in the past and added that  the Alaskan boundary salt; was a  standing disgrace. Canada will be an  immense strength to the empire if  justice is done her.  "C E. Druinmond, also responded  fresh from speaking on Lancashire  platforms. He slated that when asked why he had butted in at the elections, he replied for the same reason  that Canadians had butted in in South  Africa, namely, the real interest of the  empire.  Vancouver Province)  Such has been the exceptional increase in the number of beaver in the  province since the close season was  declared six years ago that it is deemed probable the government authorities will alloAV a partial open season  late next year.  At the time the restrictions Avere  placed beavers were almost extinct in  British Columbia, but at the present  time, declares Game Warden Bryan  Williams, there is hardly a stream in  the province lacking a colony of the  Canadian national animal, and there  are also portions of the province they  have increased to such an extent as to  create a nuisance in some places. Indeed in severa nstances permits have  been granted lately to farmers to trap  them OAving to the fact that they  Avere doing damage on the farms.  At the present time the close season  covers only that part of the province  south of the fifty-fifth parallel being,  roughly speaking a line drawn east  and west at the junction of the  BlackAvater and Fra������er rivers. North  of that boundary Indians and settlers  have been al towed to do a certain  amount of trapping. The close season iu the southern part of British  Columbia expires on November 1 next  and after that date it is thought likely  that the goyernutent authorities will  take away the restrictions for a limited time.  It is not by any means the intention  declares Mr. Williams, to have free  and unreserved trapping nor even to  outline the limited destruction of the  beaver for any considerable length of  time for the department proposes to  keep this nearly-exterminated animal  as plentiful as possible in this part of  Canada.  It Avas thought for some time when  the close season was declared that the  beavers had been almost entirely extinct for years but almost as soon as  the ban was placed upon the hunters  and little animals began to multiply  until now they are very numerous.  Any open season to be declared at  all for  next autumn and  the year fol-  The Penticton Herald has the following in reference to operations of  the K. V. Engineers on the range between Penticton and the West Fork  of the Kettle River.  ���������'Locating parties have been at  work for some time on the east slope  of the Penticton range, and it is now-  expected that the construction gangs  will he able to,lay the steel up the east  slope of the mountains on a grade  averaging little more than one percent, for the greater part of the distance covered. As previously pointed  out, if the present general plan is adhered to when construction is commenced; the railway will sweep into  Penticton from the east in an elongated horseshoe the apex of which  will be somewhere southeast of Kelowna while the arms will he repie-  sented by the ascent and descent of  the railway on the east and west sides  of the mountains respectively.  "Many difficulties ��������� have however,  yet to be faced in locating the load  from the summit into Penticton and  as winter is now apptoaching this  part of the surveying will soon have  to be abandoned for the season.  "During the winter the company  plans to survey in the town and on  the Benches.  NEWMAPOF BRITISH COLUMBIA  lowing will be aimed, it is stated, at  permitting the trapping of beaver in  places where they are becoming a  nuisance, but preserving thorn elsewhere, such as in the irrigated districts where their dams on the streams  have proven the means of conserving  the water for the benefit of the rancher desiring to run irrigation ditches.  No shooting whatever, though, will be  allowed in Southern British Columbia  next spring, however, as has been  thought generally.  A new map of the province of British Columbia has just been issued hy  the  Department of the Interior,  Ot-  tUAva, which will assist in meeting the-  demand for complete and up-to-date  information. This map, which is on a  scale of 35 miles tov the inch, shows  not only the whole province but portions of each of the following:���������Yukon  and tiie North West territories on the  north, Alberta, on the east, the United  States on the south and Alaska on the  west. All inforniation of a general  nature, Avhich the scale will admit of,  is shown, including railway stations  and all important points. The boundaries of the Dominion Railway belt  and the Dominion Land Agencies into  which it is divided, are clearly shown.  All township and range lines of the  Dominion Land system of survey,  with corresponding numbers, are  shown in this district. The Dominion  Electoral Divisions throughout the  province are also -shown.  All railways in operation and the  Grand Trunk Pacific line as located.,  are shown.  The Yukon Telegraph line can be  traced on the map all the way from  Ashcroft to Dawson City in the  Yukon.  A copy may be obtained from the  Chief Geographer of the Department  of the Interior.

Home rule'for Ireland on  the lines sought by O'Brien   is  a" question  deserving   of  the   most earnest  cons.idet-aton   of    British    statesmen.  There i>  none'of the'race and creed  hatred in   it  wliich  characterizes  the  Redmond   brand  of so-e.'illed   patriotism.    In fact  lie seems to show  more  of the statesman than dues either As-  quith or Lloyd-George.    With O'Brien  leading a  local Irish  government on  "college green." it begins to look  as if  the protestants of Ulster could  count-  on a square deal  At Vernon they have a delightful  waterworks tangle which is going to  cost the city 'heaps of money before  they ,get through with-it. At present  an appropriate subject for the local  literary societies to take up for debate  would' be as to whether it is more  dangerous to go without expert opinion than to employ an expert, .lust-  now the city is enjoying the additional  luxury of experts experting its experts and discovering not altogether  a wild-cat but another- wild beast of  prey with wings. The Mormon fathers had to pay the piper for engineering by revelation when engineer and  prophet Bi/ighant Young had them  build a canal in which the water was  required \to run uphill, because, he  said, the Lord had told him to lay it  out that way. Hut not quite so modestas Brigh.'ini was the Vernon city  fathers' expert, for instead of giving  the Lord any credit for the ditches  dug to convey inagiiinry water from  dry streams, he wanted it all (thecredit not the water) for himself. The  Ga/.ette hereby' exculpates and absolves the. News from any blame which  might ordinarilynttach to the heinous  crime of saying "1 told you so." To  have resisted the temptation under  the circumstances would have been  superhuman.  During the past eighteen months a  temperance moA'oment has been transforming the drink habits of all classes  in the north of Ireland and its beneficial effects are most apparent among  the working men   whose  families are  Notice is hereby given that an application will be made under Part V., Sec. 23,  of the "Water Act", 1909, to obtain'a licence in the Similkameen Division dfValo  District.  a The name of Company in full, South  Kelowna Land Co., Ltd.

Her husband, the doctor  will arrive in time to have his Christinas dinner in Hedley.  Don't forget the hospital ball on  January. The reason the committee  give for preferring a plain ball to a,  masquerade was that the amount of  expense entailed in getting up costumes would do more good if applied  to augment the hospital fund.  L. C. Rolls has the editor's thanks  for a rare juicy cut of venison which  avhs the product of his rifle about a  Aveek ago. The rifle he used a diminutive Luger combination pistol and carbine Avas innocent enough in appearance but it was capable of taking  down b\g- game, and at good long  range.    .  A fortnight of good golf in Hedley  in December is in inself a strong recommendation for the climate of the  Similkameen. Even the snap at the  end of the Aveek seemed to improve it  for golf for the balls travelled long distances over the frozen ground . and  there Avas not a vestige of snow or  anything to hinder full enjoyment of  ���������he game.

When  fully completed they will allow for  the admission of a feAV more patients  and afford better accommodation for  the hospital staff. The furnishing of  the new apartments will now be a  matter for the consideration of the  board and also may afford an opportunity for some philanthropically inclined citizen to help on a good cause.  The first of the calendars for 1911  to come to hand is an extremely handsome one given out by J. A. Schubert  to his customers. It is a beautiful bit  of woodland landscape entitled  "Drifting Leaves" painted by Howard  Cray. The bare maples and beeches  and the beautiful autumnal tints of  the leaves which streAV the ground to  the edge of a glassy lakelet in which  objects are mirrored, Avill bring back  many a nienory of similar scenes in  the eartern provinces.  On Monday last the sun struck low  water mark so far as shortening up in  the evening is concerned, To-day it  stays up a minute longer than on  Monday and a week from today it will  have gained up two more minutes,  but in the mornings they will continue  to shorten up for over a fortnight yet  and it Avill be about the fourth of  January before a minute has been  gained in the morning. By that time  the evenings will have lengthened out  15 minutes but the mornings in that  time will have shortened up 8 minutes  leaving a net gain of 7 minutes at that  time.  On Monday night a couple of case-?  came up for hearing in  the local court  but important evidence being lacking  in each case they Avere remanded for a  days to enable witnesses and exhibits  to  be procured.     One  was a case of  cattle stealing and the other.a case of  petty larceny.     In   the  first, James  Steves Avas charged Avith stealing a  cow and calf off the Princeton range  and selling to P. Burns and Co.   The  cow belonged to Moeace an old Indian  woman down at the mission near here.  The other case Avas against'the Indian  Felix who Avas charged Avith stealing  a grip and clothing belonging to Geo.  Allison and Billy Daly.    The grip was  lost out of the rig over a year ago and  Felix and another Indian  who drove  up behind Avere suspected of getting it  although they denied it at the time,  but evidence \vhich has come up since,  led to the laying of the charge..  Princeton business men took action  last Aveek to secure a good winter trail  through to Steamboat camp, which  showed thet they were alive to the  situation, and their ambition to be for  Steamboat, what Seattle was to the  Klondike is commendable. No matter  whether Steamboat will amount to  anything oi not the amount of boosting it has received is bound to create  a certain amount of travel there and  Princeton may just as Avell reap the  benefit of it as Hope or any other  poinf on the Avest of the. Hope range.  Wherever there is abundance of smoke  it is reasonable, to assume that there  is some fire and it is to be hoped that  the Steamboat smoke which has issued  in such huge volume from certain  quarters in Vancouver may folIoAV the  natural rule and be attended with a  commensurate amount of genuine  combustion. The name, however, is a  hit ominous and suggestsfog or some  other form or forms of Avater vapor  sometimes mistaken for- smoke that  may owe their origin to natural causes  other than those usually comprehended in the term combustion.
