I H O T E L I  I HEDLEY I  Under  New   Management  Quiet and Convenient  Special Attention Given  to the Tbaa'ktxing Public   Rates Moderate ,  For several months past it has been  evident .that the shortage of water  supply would necessitate a shut-down  of at least the greater portion of the  Daly Reduction Company works at  Hedley and' also at the mine, hut it  was hardly thought likely that this  Avould take place until after the iicav  year.  The cold snap at the end of Novem-  her, however, shoAved that theremain-  ing supply in the lake could not be  counted on to keep things going steadily in all kinds of weather until after  Ncav Years, and as a result of it, the  extraction of ore at the mine was discontinued and the1 mine force that  Avere engaged in-taking out ore were  paid off. . -  ' The mill which had shutdown for a  couple of days during the cold snap  started up again but was only run on  the reserve supply of ore in the bins.  Had all the ore in the bins been milled  there would have been nearly another  week's run ; but on Friday morning  last the real thing came and the mill  force were also paid oil" except those  who Avere retained for repair work.  : At the mine a force of 18 or 20 men  are employed on development Avork  and while these may not nil Avork  clear through to the end of March, at  which time it is expected that the  water Avill have gained sufficiently to  set all the wheels moving again, it is  believed that at least a portion of them  will be employed until that time.  The season has been one of exceptional dryness, the amount of precipitation being far below that of the 'average year, and it all goes to show that  the question of power is one which  must be grappled Avith before mining  operations can be carried out on a  scale worthy of the ore deposits of the  camp.  It seems strange too that we should  talk of shortage of water for power  purposes with the Similkameen river  flowing past our dooi:s, not a pound of  which is utilized to turn It wheel. The  water which flows through Twenty-  mile during "the course of the year  would be far over that required to  drive everything if it could all be  utilized but unfortunately there are  three or four months of the year  when a larger vplume'of it is being  Avasted than that which is being used  during the balance of the year.  Whether this \vaste could be stopped  by some system of storage which  Avould hold the water back is something for hydraulic engineers to look  into, but it would seem that the simpler solution of the difficulty would be  to use the water of the Similkameen  river where there is always an abundance.  Those Avho   resided   in    McKinney  during the last four years of operation  of the Cariboo mine will be interested  in the following reference to Charles  'E. Betts taken from  the  VancoiiA'cr  Province.   Mr. Betts, who was a civil  engineer of good standing looked after  the books of the Cariboo Co. and did  surface and    underground  surveying  for the Cariboo mine from the summer of 1898 to the close of operations  at the end of December 1903.   Driven  there by ill-health,  he found the climate of that camp suitable, and during  his residence there,  proved his capability as   an engineer   and   sterling  worth as a man, and made many warm  friends in spite of a slight tendency to  cynicism." He had formerly done   a  great deal of railway engineering with  Van Arsdel who is how the Chief Engineer on construction on the G. T. P.  and Van Arsdel put him in  charge of  a large section of location work in the  northern part of B. C.    Some of his  old time friends  at  McKinney   occasionally heard from him Avheh he was  in camp at Great Sliive Lake, and all  of them will be pleased to knoAv that  he is making good.   Indeed their confidence in him is such that they could  not expect anything else.  The Province   says.  "Mr.   Charles   E.   Betts,   a Grand  Trunk Pacific. Railway engineer, who  has been engaged on the location  of  the  route   betAvcen    Edmonton  and  Fort George, is a guest at the Hotel  Vancouver.   For nearly   three years  he has been occupied at this  task,  his  sole companions being his assistants  and Indians.     Mr.   Betts    expressed  himself as'delighted to get within the  pale of civilization once more.   It was  like coming into a new world  to see  railway trains,   electric  lights,   telephones and trolley cars.     He Avalked  every foot of the distance between the  prairie country and Fort George.   The  route he   said,  provided    the lowest  grades of any  transcontinental road.  It has  been  located   from  tideAA'ater  and across the central portion of the  province to 'rail-head east of Edmonton,   Mr Betts, while decliuing to go  into details owing to  the secrecy imposed by the   company,   stated  in  a  general Avay that the resources along  the route would soon attract   Avide-  spread attention.    He came out via  Ashcroft, where the last survey and  packing parties were disbanded."  GOLDEN ZONE INCORPORATED.  , J. Marks and Associates in the  Bond  have   Stocked the Property and Expect to Start Work Before Spring  THE LONG AND'SHORT HAUL  C. P.  A iioav mining company to operate  in Camp Hedley is The Golden Zone  Mining Co. Ltd,, which has been formed to take over and work- the Golden  Zone group.  , The company is to be incorporated  under the Companies' Act of 1897 Avith  limited liability. The capital stock  authorized- is $500,000 being divided  into two million shares of 25 cents each,  par valuel  The property owned by the company is a likely group although the  amount of deA'clopment so far is  limited. The work done so far has  shoAvti up a lot of ore which in places  is high grade and would certainly  giA*e an average of good payable ore.  There is a five stamp mill on the  property Avhich during the period of  high water would serve to thoroughly  test the milling qualities of the ore  and this iu itself is a very important  advantage for any company taking  hold of a new property.  The first thing to be done to show  the bona fides of the enterprise is to  undertake a vigorous development  scheme so as to test quantity and  quality of the ore and Avhen these are  fully settled a mill large enough to be  worked commercially might be erected  in a spot Avhere a continuous supply of  water might be obtained.  It is from all present appearance a  legitimate enterprise in which any  purchaser of stock would have a fair  run for his money; and in any mining  investment at the initial stage, that  is all that any one* has a right to ask.  Much always depends on Avise capable  management and it is up to all stockholders to see that they get this.  The Gazette wishes the new company every success and we see no  reason why they should not have it.  R.   Rates on Canned Goods from  Ontario and the Okanagan.  Geo. E. Winkler writes a letter to  the Penticton Press complaining of  the manner in which the C. P. R. is  discriminating againstOkanaganfruit-  giowers anrl canners in the matter of  freight rates. The car-load rate from  Penticton to the coast is 71 cents per  100 lbs and from Ontario it is $1.00 per  100 lbs. Thus with the lower wage  scale and cost of living in Ontario, the  eastern fruit-grower and canner is  given an advantage over the Okanagan  fruit-grower, for the coast'market.  Mr. Winkler says that when theC.P.R.  assistant general freight agent was  appealed to he said that Okanagan  should dispose of its out-put on'the  prairies and leave the. coast market  alone, and to facilitate that arrangement as well as to swell the C. P. B.  freight receipts, the- Calgary dealer  has to pay $1.29 per 100 lbs for Ontario  goods Avhich the railway Avill deliver-  in Vancouver for $1.00.   _������������_   FOSTER WOULD DISFRANCHISE  OVERSEAS MAIL RESTORED.

He thought the public should be  sponsible for prosecutions instead  individuals, as was the case to-day.  re-  of  AGE OF FLIGHT AT HAND.  KINGSTON  GROUP   IMPROVING.  The Dike was Struck on Saturday Last.  Cross-cutting   Ore   on  the  Metropolitan  HOW  J. J.   HILL  ESTIMATES  Says U. S. A. Will Have Population  200,000,000 in 30 Years.  of  $   VANDER J. ROSE   I  x x  jj Proprietor g  Peoria, Ills., Dec. 9.���������Surrounded by  more prominent railroad officers than  ever before visited Peoria at one time,  James J. Hill last night addressed 500  persons at a banquet given in his honor  by the Commercial and Crevecoeur  Clubs of Peoria. Mr. Hill advocated  the developement of the agricultural  interests of the country as its future  salvation.. He held that no country  ever prospered unless it was based on  agriculture as its chief industry.  In the next thirty years he predicted  that the population of the United  States Avould increase to 200,000,000,  and the present methods of agriculture  Avould be inadequate then. He declared  that it Avas an utter impossibility at  the present prices of material and labor to build and equip a railroad from  Chicago to Ncav York which would pay  a dividend of 2 per cent, per annum on  the investment.  Since the Gazette write-up of the  Kingston group in last issue we have  learned that the past ten days has  shown still further improvement in  the situation. The tunnel referred to  in last issue, that was being driven  and having for its objective point an  ore body believed to lie on the upper  side of a dike which outcropped on  the surface farther up the mountain  side, broke into the diKe on Saturday  last, thus far bearing out the truth of  the conclusions arrived at. In about  tAvo Aveeks' time this dike unless it has  increased its width far over that  shoAvn on the surface, should be cut  across and the ore body reached. Of  course there may be a possibility of a  pinch in the ore body at the point  where the tunnel breaks through the  dike, but if so it -will only be a matter  of following along the contact for a  short distance until it is found, unless  all evidence from surface indications  has given them a "wrong steer."  On the Metropolitan, too the ore  continued strong in the shaft, and now  they are cross-cutting to see how  large it really is, and also to ascertain  Avhether it will hold the satisfactory  values all the way across that was  fo und on the andesite footwall.  Altogether the Kingston group is  looking very well, and everything  points to better things in store for  them, as development work  continues.  Foster's severe storm which Avas  billed to appear between the 13th and  18th is being looked for intently and  the effect Avhich it may Inwe on the  Avood-pile duly considered.  Cabled advices from England to-day  state that the imperial government  has renewed the overseas mail service  with the C. P. R. for the sum of  ������15,000 per annum and has agreed to  allow a longer period for transportation, namely thirty-five and a half  instead of thirty-four clays between  Liverpool aud Hongkong.  As a consequence of the conclusion  of this new agreement it is expected  that the C. P. R. will at an early date  re-establish the overseas mail transcontinental express service Avhich was  dropped when the former contract expired.  According to the terms of the contract, dated October 12th betAveen the  post-master general and the Canadian  Pacific Railway company the agreement is for three years, and expires  on April 0th, 1911. '  The agreement provides for a mail  service once in every three weeks during the summer, and once in every  four weeks during the winter in each  direction. The mails are to be taken  from Liverpool to Hongkong or from  Hongkong to Liverpool Avithin a total  period of S18 hours when the conveyance is by Avay of Quebec or  Rimouski, and within 852 hours Avhen  the conveyance is by way of Halifax  or St. John. The masters, officers  and three-fourths of the crews of the  mail ships employed on the Atlantic  must be British subjects, but this requirement does not apply to the mail  steamers between Vancouver and  Hongkong.'  The company is put under an obligation, in regard to the conveyance of  persons and goods by mail ships, to  give no undue preference to traders or  other customers or persons outside  British possessions. During the continuance of the contract the admiralty  is to have poAver to purchase or  charter the mail ships, and the company is prohibited from selling them  or letting them upon hire without the  consent of the admiralty and the postmaster- general.  Says in War, Flying Machines Will Be  Used to Bombard English Towns.  LONDON, Dec. 4.���������Sir Hiram Maxim took the British nation to task for  its small interest in aerial machines in  a lecture before thet Society of Arts.  He reproached England for being behind other fust-class European countries in progress towards a solution of  this form of locomotion.  "Does anyone doubt for a moment,"  said he "that in case we find ourselves  at war Avith a continental power flying machines will bo used for bombarding English towns both on the  coast and inland? The City of London within a year's time can be attacked without our enemy needing to  fear the boasted British fleet.  "A French engineer of international  renown tells me that by this time next  year there, will be plenty of machines  on the market capable of crossing and  recrossing the channel several times  at night and in darkness without  stopping," he continued.  "There is only one way of combating this danger and that is by constructing machines ourselves. Our  achievements in this line thus far are  insignificant because Ave lack the  agination of the French and  Americans. They begin by believing,  we by doubting."  Sir Hiram went on to say that he  thought the Wright aevoplaneja rough  and imperfect piece of mechanism, but  if equipped with a trustworthy motor  it could be made much more serviceable.  Other speakers seconded Sir Hiram's  Avarning that it is full time for England to wake up unless she Avants to  find herself at the mercy of the conti-  mental military fliers.  MAY FIND DIAMONDS.  unfile  OTTAWA, Dec. 12th.-(Special)-Dr.  H. M. Ami of the geological survey  says it is quite possible that there is  truth in the statment that diamonds  have been found in the vicinity of  Cochrane, NeAV Ontario.  He believes that it Avould be an excellent thing if a geologist was appointed to follow the construction of  the Transcontinental Railway. He  thought it would be the moans of making many valuable new discoveries of  mineral. THE  HEDLEY GAZETTE, DECEMBER 17, 1908.  ������rffeei������ ttuKfte.  and  ,   Similkameen Advertiser.

It is  not  only  the C. P. R. which is the sinner  in    this matter for   the   rate  schedules of all transcontinental raihvay lines sIioav that they  all practise this peculiar creed  of   making inland  toAvns pay  about 30 per cent,  higher  than  coast toAvns have to  pay  that  are 1000 miles farther on.     Fifteen years  ago  a merchant in  Vernon avc.s getting a  car-load  of sto\res from Ontario and instead of having them  shipped  to Vernon direct he  had  them  billed   through   to Vancouver,  and on their arrival  there had  the car hauled back to Vernon,  paying the local rate for the last  portion of the haul.    By doing  so he saved $15.00 over what he  would have been charged  on a  direct haul.   Thus he compelled  the C. P. R. to haul his car-load  of stoA'es 900 miles for $15 less  than nothing.   It is understood  that since that time the C. P. R.  rates have been modified somewhat so as to lighten the amount  of the  discrimination but the  principle   is   still   maintained.  The Spokane Chamber of Commerce has been for years fighting the same kind  of discrimination practised against them  by   the  Great   Northern   and  Northern Pacific railways,   but  so far as known they have   not  succeeded in forcing these  railways     to   lift   this   handicap  against them.      Spokane   was  willing to pay the railways  the  Seattle rate from the  east,  but  was not willing to have that  rate increased by the amount of  the local rate from Seattle back  to Spokane.   This piece  of extortion on the part of the railways ought to come under the  power of the  raihvay  commission    to   deal  Avith,  for apart  from   any   railway   mode   of  reasoning as to the justice  of  it, the whole thing can only be  regarded by the lay mind as  a  vulgar piece of grab  ing paragraph relating to postal  sayings banks Avhich will be  interest to Canadians : "I  reiieAV my recommendation for  postal savings banks, for depositing savings with the security of the gOA-ernment behind  them. The object is to encourage thrift and economy iu the  Avage-earner and persons of  moderate. means. In fourteen  states the deposits in savings  banks are reported to be  .$3,592,245,402, or 98.4 per cent,  of the entire deposits, while in  the remaining thirty-two states  there are only $70,308,543, or  .1.6. per cent., showing conclusively that '"there are many localities in the United States  where ������������������sufficient opportunity is  not given to the people to deposit their savings. The result  is that money is kept in hiding  and unemployed. It is believed  that in the aggregate vast  sumsof money would be brought  into circulation through the instrumentality of the postal savings banks. While there are  only 1,453 savings banks reporting to the comptroller, there  are more than 61,000 ^post  offices, 40,000 of which are  money order offices.

The World says:  "Walter A. Nichol, proprietor  of The    Vancouver    Province,  intervieAved   in  Montreal,   declared    that "Dick McBride   is  big enough for any job in   Canada.     He  is young, however,"  Mr. Nichol admitted, "only 36,  and has a good  deal to learn.  But he  can learn it.     He  has  brains, ambition, a strong personality, is a magnetic speaker,  and possesses that indefatigable  quality that Macdonald possessed, that Laurier has, that sets a  man apart, in the minds of his  fellows,.-as born to lead.     That  he can groAV and learn is shown  by the fact that  Avhen  I went  west, some tAvelve years ago, he  was regarded as a political force  in a small way in  his toAvn of  New  Westminister.    He greAV  in public esteem as he  became  better   known,    and to-day is  easily   the  most popular   and  powerful man in  the province.

Small  pocket specimens sire no good and  will not he taken. Chunks of ore containing about a cubic foot are the specimens sought for. This is what Mr.  Brock says and the man he is sending  to make the selection from specimens  offered will no doubt observe this distinction, and choose accordingly.  The vacancy on the railway commission and the portfolio of mines are  tAvo plums that are kept dangling he-  fore the eyes of sundry politicians.  Regarding the railway commissioner-  ship the public is not much concerned,  but now that the political fight i.s over  there seems to be a pretty general  Avish that Mr.  Laurier should retain  Teinpleman as Minister of Mines.   o :   METEOROLOGICAL.

Mrs. Sapipson whose.'husband is shift boss at the Nickel Plate,  is the only woman living on the hill at  present, and when she went back this  week she didn't expect to get down to  Hedley again before spring.  Dr. and Mrs. Whillans returned on  Saturday night. Thedoctor Avas taking special >vork in Chicago hospitals  and at first it Avas his intention to  spend the winter there while Mrs.  .Whillans remained Avith friends in  Alberta, but he decided to change his  plans and will defer completion of the  course for a little Avhile longer.

The  richest portion of the Nickel Plate ore  body Avas where it Avas cut Avith a pro-  phyry dike and this is exactly the condition now found on the Humming  Bird.  Mr  Great Northern has not yet reached  here. This goes to show that the  G. N. R. ean be slow in other things  as well as in getting the rails laid  down between Keremeos and Hedley.  The C. P.

Maclean has been confined to his room for'the past ten days  with an attack of what is commonly  called "Shingles," but he is now making satisfactory progress towards recovery. One advantage in this complaint is that convalescence is accelerated by plenty of'building-up material.  A little ship-lap to go with the shingles,  ���������and a few other iktas in that line  would fix him all light.  The School Entertainment announced for Sajburday evening 19th inst has  been declared off. This has been caused by Miss Davies being summoned to  Victoria by telegram, requiring her  to be there-, on "the-20th, Avhich will  necessitate her leaving here on Friday  morning. Accordingly the balance of  $10.70 left over from last year has  been returned to the treasurer and all  other money collected-for any other  purpose in connection with the entertainment has been .returned to the  parties contributing:same.

A shipment of paper for the Gazette  which left the mill in Ontario about  the beginning of October to come via  Another of the old timers passed  aAvay on Sunday morning last when  death claimed James Jacobs at the  residence of his son-in-law A* H. Souk-  up. For some time past he- has. been  in indifferent health, and during the  past tAvo days had taken to his bed.  He Avas a placer miner in Cariboo before coming to the Similkameen, Avhere  he took up a ranch near the mouth of  Wolf Creek. This he sold over three  years ago to the'Great Northern, after  Avhich he bought from A. Nissen the  ranch upon which he has lived Avith  Mr. and Mrs. So.ukup for the last three  years or thereabout. He Avas industrious and inoffensive and had the  good will of all.  The Gazette has received a communication from Anarchist mountain  complaining that in our issue of Nov.  19th, Ave had arrived at a wrong conclusion from the Sidley vote cast in  the recent election and had*placed  credit Avhere it did not belong. As  some of the sentences in it appear to  bear the construction that it is intended more as a private letter to the  editor than for publication, and as no  good purpose Avould be sewed by its  publication, but rather the reverse, we  merely call attention to the .point  raised, in this general way. The Conservative campaign secretary in Green-  Avood is also blamed either for lack of  discrimination, or too much unwise  discrimination, in sending out notices  of meetings to the wrong parties.  There are several good old .trusties,  Avho haA*e in rain and shine upheld the  Conservative cause in that locality,  and it Avould be a mistake to over-look  their services as appears to have unintentionally been done. But of  course Greenwood being iu another  provincial riding the Conservatives in  that town sould scarcely be expected  to know (as Ave do in the Similkameen)  Avho are the friends of the Conservative cause in that portion' of the  riding.

Had these trees still  been standing it is clear that fewer  boulders Avould have reached the  bench ; for Avhile the stumps stopped  some of them, others Avere bounding  so high in the air that they jumped  clean over stumps and other boulders.  Altogether, it has probably been one  of the biggest rock movements along  the face of this mountain that has  occured Avithin the memory of the  present generation.  A rock slide about midnight on Saturday night last sounded a  trifle  uncanny to dwellers on the Avest end of  "the 1-oav" as Kinston avenue is sometimes called.   The soft weather of Saturday folloAved by the brisk rain in the  evening and frost a few hours later  had evidently given  a mass of loose  rock a little bit of a heave that threw  it out of balance and started it oil  down the face of the cliff.     As a rule  the sedimentaries forming the cliff on  the west side of TAventy mile are so  decomposed that no matter how large  a mass.breaks off itflies into fragments  before    it    gets    half    Avay    down  and   spreads   out   over    the    talus.  The mass  which   broke off on Saturday night Avas, however, a little firmer  and as   a   result   some big   angular  boulders weighing several tons reached the bench on the north eastern corner of Pinto flat.   The cutting down  of trees on the hill-face to put in' the  creek   cribbing,   left clear scope for  Holders   of United   Wireless Telegraph Co. stock should pay no attention  to    the  "hee   haws"  of certain  highly  tickled  parties around   town,  who base their talk  wholly on   the  authority of a paragraph in a medical  paper  that the stock  was  selling  in  New York for less than it is selling on  the Pacific coast.   Sensible people do  not    go    to   Mother   Siegel's   worm  syrup almanac for light  on  questions  of finance, and financiers are not  supposed to go into a panic on any financial pabulum which any Mother Siegel  or other phisicky publication may contain.   The fiscal agent of the United  Wireless Telegraph Co. on the Pacific  coast,  who is also a director of the  company and therefore responsible for  Avhatever he gives out to the public,  has said in print that the concern is  noAV on a paying basis,  and  that the  only use being made of proceeds from  sale of stock is to help the pi*ofits, part  of Avhich are now being used  in extending the system by  the equipping  of   new  stations,  and  building   neAV  factories for the manufacture of electrical equipment.   If this be so (and  there   is no reason to doubt it) the  price of stock Avill cut no figure, for  Avithout the sale of another share of  its stock the concern is bound to succeed, and the only ill effect Avhich a  stoppage of stock sales can  have is  to  delay the time when handsome dividends can  be paid to   stock-holders.  There never was any financial enter -  prise that achieved success that Avas  not assailed at its inception   with  the  braying of asses and United  Wireless  cannot expect to be an exception.

NEW RAILROAD IS A MARVEL  Regarded by engineers as a marvel  of consti-iietiou is the Spokane, Portland and .Seattle railway, -123 miles the  most direct line between Spokane and  Portland, which will be completed Jan.  1st VM). The road built jointly by the  Great-Voi them and Northern Pacific  systems-, i-? the must expensive in  America, the coat of it ranging fiom  $2.-)(),0!)l) Lo $"il)0,0()0a mile. Twenty-live  niik-s of track remain to be laid between Spokane and Pasco, and this  work will be completed in two weeks.  Besides this there are two bridges a  mile apart near Devil's canyon. One  is 1,100 feet in length and 220 feet high,  while the other i.s 1,000 feet long and  1G0 feet above tho ground in the centre.  The road has been built without regard to expense, tire purpose being to  make it permanent and safe. An idea  of this may be gained when it is known  that 20 miles of line between Pasco and  Kahlotus, cost ,-p.5,000,000, or ������250,000 a  mile, while a mile of road along the  bluffs OA'erh-iiiging Snake river involved an expenditure of .$.300,000. To survey and build this part of the line,  which follows the Columbia river, men  were suspended over the cliffs with  ropes ; but while there were many narB  row escapes, not a life was lost nor  was anyone seriously injured.���������Ephra-  to Journal.  1������  it  Open Your Eyes,  The habit of going through the world  with the eyes shut is an inveterate  one, common in till times. In old time  the prophets and the groat Teacher  himself reproached their disciples with  this failing. "Eyes have ye, and see  not," said they. True, it Avas a failure  to perceive spiritual truth in their  case. All our faculties, bodily, mental,  spiritual, are given to us for use, and  we are held to be responsible for neglect of them, as was that servant in  the parable who went and hid in the  earth that talent that his lord had  entrusted to him. Sufficient stress is  not laid upon the use and abuse of our  bodily faculties or the neglect of them.  Do but consider how much pleasure  we debar ourselves from when we shut  up this the chief of Five Gateways  of Knowledge.

British  Military Balls.  It has often boon demonstrated thai  the schoolmaster is needed among tha  British officers. Home queer, quaint efforts at composition have been made  iu brigade orders. A certain major ordained not long ago this: "Reveille  will be at 8:3.0 a. m. The brigade will  parade at 4 a. m. The brigade will  move at 4:15 a. m. The sun will'rise  at 5 a. in." It was during the guerrilla  Avar of 3001-02, after the building of  the blockhouses, that it became necessary to check the habit of the men of  sleeping outside the blockhouses for  +he sake of coolness and comfort. A  certain staff officer thereupon issued  the following quaint order: "No one is  permitted 'to sleep outside the blockhouses except the sentries."
