The Christmas season in Hedley was  diily observed by the* business houses,  tint more enterprising of whom made  their .-iniiouncementsin due time by ad;  or hand-bill.. The snow which arrived  in good time and gave the people of  this portion of the valley a taste of  the old time back east Christmas on a  mild scale, also helped business.    At  THE   HEDLEY MEAT    MARKET  Cawstoh & Kdmond's display certainly indicated that the people of Hedley  believed in good living. Long rows of  beef, mutton, pork, lamb, turkeys and  geese, all looking fresh and toothsome,  from the herds and flocks of Mrs Daly  and W. J..Mattery decked the shop.  Tins store of  SHATVOHDS    LIMITED  was for days the Mocca of shoppers,  especially those of the. fair sex  whose  watfts had  been  anticipated   in   fine  lines of white goods,  ladies' wearing  apoarel in latest styles and finest quality.   The large, well appointed double  store, which possibly has no equal in  the interior nearer than Greenwood or  Grand Forks, and no superior nearer  than  Rossland    ov "Nelson,   was   well  calculated to show off the stock to the  best advantage and the windows-were  attractively dressed with good  things  to eat and wear.

Both  Parties   Are  Beginning  to  Candidates in  the Field  Put  CAMP  McKINNEY.  Progress  Made In Getting the  Cariboo  Under Way Again.  lessees of the-Cariboo Mine at  As a rule the scare reports of the  Liberal press as-to. the imminence of  an election did not disturb the equanimity of Conservatives, and very  few candidates are being chosen in  the Conservative camp.. But the  strong probability that the election  which must come off before the third  of October next, may be brought on  several months sooner, and that before  many weeks the last session will be in  progress which will take representatives iiwnv from their constituencies,  there seems to be a disposition in some  of the ridings to hold the conventions  before the session.  Okanagan Conservatives last week  re nominated Price Ellison, and held  a monster banquet at which 300 sat  down. Premier McBride was present  and addressed a public meeting next  evening. Dr. McDonald, the Liberal  Candidate, will not. have the ghost of  a look-in, for Price is in fine fettle.  Grand Forks Conservatives are to  meet m convention shortly, for their  present representative, Fraser, has removed from the riding and another  man will be chosen. The Conservatives of Grand Forks have  abundance  The enteitaininent given by Miss  Lamont and her pupils in Fraternity  Hall on Dec 21st afforded the townspeople a very pleasant evening. Front  the care that has been taken with the  embellishment of the Christmas Tree  and decking the platform, the audience  covdd mark at a glance the desire on  the part of the school to please them;  but the pleasure which amounted to  pleasureable surprise was found in the  meritorious performance of the pupils  themselves who acquitted them in a  manner which showed the skill and  care that had been spent upon' their  training.  The recitations were given with a,  degree of expression which showed  that reading is being well taught in  the school, and the marches were executed with a precision which marks  orderliness and discipline. Mrs. S. L.  Smith took in hand the musical -training and drilled the ohildren in the various, songs and choruses, which delighted the audience: and to Mrs R. 8.  Collin fell the task of instructing them  In, the intricacies of the Maypole dance,  a. number which was very much enjoyed.  The chair was taken by  A. Megraw.  who'in view of the extreme length of  the   programme, asked   that encores  be dispensed with.    The opening piece  was   a   carol   by   the   school.    Sarah  Cootes recited in a creditable   manner  "Much  Trouble   Before    Christmas,"  and later on "'AChristmas Eve Adventure." Lullaby, a trio bv Avonia Jones  Emily Jackson and Monica Smith was  nicely given.    The instrumental solos,  "In A Gondola"   and    "Chapel Bells"  by Marjory Snn'tli were truly wonderful performances, and especially for a.  child of her years.    These,  with the  instrumental duett   by Gertrude and  Marjory were numbers that were very  much   appreciated.    Vera  Shatford's  recitation,"'How does   Santa   do   it?-  and    Robbie    Bartlett's     "Tommy's  Christmas Trouble" were   unique   because of the tender years   of the performers.    But the piece which seemed  to carrv the. audience  by  storm  was  the soug "Driven from Home," sung  in character and with apt setting  by  Emily Jackson,   Gertrude Smith and  Gladys Brown  with  effective accompaniment from the  wings.    The only  adult numbers were two instrumental  solos,   "The Naiad's  Dream" and  La  Rosiere   bv    Mrs    Dickenson,- which  were much enjoyed; and two songs.  "The   Gift"   and   "Afton Water"  by  Miss Campbell  which  were given  in  good voice and were favorably received.    A very pretty song that called up  old memories to some of  tho listeners  was the "Swiss Toy Girl" by Gertrude  Marjory and Monica Smith  and  Vera  Shatford.   The   Maypole   Da-nee was  pretty in its effects, and was executed  by   Sarah     Cootes,   Gladys     Brown,  Avonia Jones Emily and Anna  Jackson. Gertrude and Marjory Smith and  Florence  Messenger.

CARD  OF   THANKS  Miss Lamont desires to thank the  pupils of the Hedley school for their  very kind remembrance of her. Their  gift is appreciated not only because it is beautiful in itself, but because it is an expression of tho good  will of the pupils to their teacher.  Iknowed who Santa "������Yir/���������" and "If  Santa Should Stumble" by Jasper  AVoodward, and "He Got. the Best of  Santa" by Kmily Jackson, and the remaining .carols by the school were  ".Merry Christmas Bells" and "The  Christ Child" and "Watch for Santa"  The.accompanimeuts for the children's  pieces were daved In- Mrs. Smith, in  some of which she was assisted by her  little daughter Marjory. Mrs Dickenson played the accompaniments for  Miss Campbell and Mr. Rolls played  for the Maypole Dance. The feature ���������  of the programme that most interested  the children was the advent and performance of Santa Clans. The fireplace from which he emenged was a  particularly realistic affair with imitation brick and mortar and a fire burning in the grate. Santa's explanation  of the cause of the delay was quite  satisfactory. In the presents from  the. tree none, of the children were forgotten, and many of the grown-ups  were made glad.  Altogether, the affair was a most  enjoyable one, and it is to be hoped that  each recurring Christmas season may  witness a similar   event.

Now   they   have   forced    recognition  from    all    sorts   and.   conditions    of  men  and are acknowledged    by   the  people and governments of the various  provinces as a great factor in not only  the religious   and  social   life    of   the  country but the. industrial lite as well.  One great secret of their success  has  be.e:i   that   in   all   their  doings  they  are eminently practical, and a vein of  s inn I business horse sense has.charac-.  terizsd aii their dealings.

MACIXTYKE,  ���������WI-3  Official Administrator for the County  Court District of Yale, Kamloops. DC,  A rumor is persistent to the effect  that \V. \V. B. Mclnnes is to give up  the governorship of the Yukon and reenter provincial politics in this province, as the. leader of the Liberal party  in the. room of J. A. Macdonald with  ���������whom the party is apparently dissatisfied. The. Nelson News, however,  while pretending uot to do so, disapproves of: the, affair, and by a. few  back-handed compliments gives the  man from the Yukon to understand  that Macdonald should continue to  lead the Liberal party indefinitely.  \Vha.t lends color to the report is the  present visit of .Mclnnes to Ottawa.,  which is believed to have been made  at til" instance of the party bosses.  .Several county judgeships are on tap  which are said to await ."dacdonald as  MM/n as he is willing to   make  way for  ARillllKW.  toria employers. An interview was  obtained after the meeting with Hon.  R. G-. Tatlow, minister of agriculture  and -finance.. While the minister did  not care to divulge the exact terms of  the contract entered into with the  Salvation Army, he was not adverse  to discussing the proposed granting of  $25,000 to aid the former organization  in bringing settlers to British Columbia. ���������  The matter, he said, had been considered during the conference held between commissioner Coombes and  members of the cabinet. There was  no doubt that it would be a'measure'  in the interests of the west and one  which would assist in tlie executioirof  any plans the Salvation Army might  have in view in regard to the encouragement of immigration to this province. But, he contended, the money  wasn't needed yet. It was intended  that it should be used in bringing the  men to the country. The Army wasn't  looking for absolute paupers. They  expected the settlers selected to pay at  least a portion of their transportation  and other expenses. All they did was  to extend necessary assistance, and to  direct their proteges as to the best  districts in which to make their future  homes. Therefore the $25,000 would  not be needed immediately. The use  it was intended to put that sum to was  entirely .uhrerent to that which', apparently the Victoria, board of trade  members had in mind. If such an appropriation were niadethe Salvation  Army proposed disbursing it in the  payment of transportation, etc., of the  families of those settlers, who, having  left the old country upon the recommendation and through the co-operation of the Salvation Army, are. satisfied with the change and wish their  immediate relatives to join them.  These people, as a rule, hadn't sufficient funds on hand, after a few  mouths had convinced them that they  had been cast amid agreeable surroundings and were in a situation with  better possibilities than formerly, to  bring their wives and families to join  them. It w;is when that stage had  been reached that the army wished  the government appropriation of $25,-  000 so that it might he possible to  again aid them financially.  Hon. Mr. Tatlow thought that the  scheme was an excellent one. It had  worked well in other provinces and  would probably be found just as satisfactory in British Columbia. But the  time hadn't arrived. The settlers  themselves hadn't yet begun to pour  across the   Rockies.

The latter, he understood, lent it to the settlers for the  purpose mentioned only on condition  that it be paid back iu instalments.

During the past few* weeks the  water has been fairly steady, and the  Daly Reduction Co's" stamp mill has  been making the most of things by-  keeping everything going full blast.  Methaphorically speaking, it is a case  of "making hay while the sun shines,"  but literally it is making the price of  hay (Yukon rates) while water runs,  whether grass grows or not.  Mr. J. Gladden, assisted by H. AV.  Yates and N. B. Ewart, is doing survey  work on Ashnola, Creek for the Daly  Reduction Co., in taking water levels.  The Company are obtaining all possible data to enable them to arrive at  exact cost, of various alternative power  schemes, before deciding upon wdiat  line of action will be taken in future  operation of their properties here.  Geo. S. Sproule, constable at Osoyoos  and Chief Licence Inspector for the  South East Yale licensing district,  was in town on Saturday. He says  that the recent snowfall was no re-  spector of localities, and that all parts  seemed to share alike. At Osoyoos,  which is rarely favored with snow  enough for sleighing, the snow was  about as deep as anvwher.e between  here and there.  Postmaster Gillespie had a busy  time of it on Christmas Day. The  only recreation he had was the shoot  in the forenoon, but his troubles began  when the stage came in with a big  load of mail that had* all to be sorted  out and delivered. The wdeket was  not opened until nearly 11 p. m., and  after callers had been given their mail,  half the night had to be spent in  making up the onl-going mail.  New Year calls by gentlemen is a  time-honored custom that in recent  years seems to dropping out. On that  day matrons always expected to be  honored by their gentleman friends,  both attached and unattached, particularly the latter, with a short call.  Mrs. S L. Smith, loth to see the  custom drop, will be at home at  "The Firs" on New- Year's Day, between the hours of 2 and (5 p. m.  The Anaconda News annual is to  hand, and is all right. The editor may  be the youncest in B. C, but he is  striking a gait that many older ones  would do well to mark and endeavor  to emulate. It is pleasing to note also  that his efforts are appreciated by the  business men of Greenwood and Anaconda, wdio are freely using his advertising columns. By this they show-  that their town is not yet an object of  interest to the undertaker.  M. McAuley and A. McLeocl went  out on Saturday to stake a mineral  claim near A. Winkler's ranch. They  came on a live wild-cat, which tho dog-  drove into a tree. A fight ensued, in  which the two Macks, the dog and the  axe were the principals; but it was  the axe which despatched the wild-cat.  It weighed about sixty pounds, and  McAuley is positive that it was a  genuine lynx. Whether the mineral  claim was afterwards staked or not,  is not known, but at all events a wildcat was bagged.

Adventures of two Former Hedleyites on  the   West   Coast   of Vancouver  Island.  r  MVWWtyAW^fc  The following sketch of a timber  cruise on tlie West coast .of 'Vancouver Island in which''Messrs' E. E.  Hardwick and C. E. Docksteatler were  the participants will prove of interest  to readers.-in ������������������Hedley. Rev. 0. E.  '.Docksteatler was 'formerly pastor Of  the'Methodist Church here, and -Mr.  -Hardwick frequently occupied tlie  pulpit. The adventures read somewhat like, those   of   Paul   and   Silas.  The  narative   begins:    "Wc   rowed!  up ,the coast  until   we came    to  the j  ���������   Nit-i-nat,Which is \.H miles  long and  '-������ miles wide, and the tide boils in  and  out Of an opening not  more than  100  yds. wide.    We could go in only when  there  is  a smooth sea  and   the,  tide  running in and vice versa coining out.  Well, we got in safely and camped  in  an Indian smoke'-house'half  way  up  V the Nit-i hat.    The first few days were  beautiful.    Then we left, the  big lake  "and started .up. a, river  running into  the west shore from another lake called the Hoinitah about six miles long.  - The-river'   was  a   mountain   torrent,  with falls, fish traps -and   fallen  trees  to obstruct the. right "of way.    First  /we', took a day up the'bank to view" the  prospect, then  deciding  it was feasible, Ave boarded our cauoeand started,  with-two poles to.' pole up as  well as  our oars.    We had not  proceeded far  before-we lost'both our  poles.    Next  we ���������encountered a water fall   and the.  canoe swung round,and iu a twinkling  filled with water, and was only saved  from capsizing  bv  our jumping into  the water up to our waists,    We had  to use the. oars   to   keep   from  being  swept off our feet.    YVc then attached  -'a rope   to   our canoe   and ������������������.towed    it  across the river, up oyer the fish-traps,  the remaining falls   and   fallen  trees,  and reached   an   Indian  smoke-house  just before dark.    We then dried our  clothes by'the fire and retired  for the  night, - The days   on   the   lake were  without much Of note   until   the   last  day, when it blew an  awful  gale and  'rained   in   torrents.    It    was   almost  night before Ave reached camp,   tired  and drenched to tlie skin.   That night  it blew a hurricane, and the falling of  mighty trees sadly spoiled our  night's  rest.    Next day the   river   had  risen  several feet,   and   we    made,   up our  minds to return to   the   Nit-i-nat for  this time.    The first part of the journey was without  extraordinary incident except some   rather  fast  travelling, and in fact all went well until we  came to the last falls.    At   this juncture we decided to   cross   the stream  above the falls so as to  take the falls  on the. best   side.    I    seized   the oars  and made a desperate pull  for  it, but  alas, in    trying    to miss a   rock,  our  Is  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply .point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which, is situated the fatuous " Nickel  u  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising inines and prospects. It is the mining and business  centre of the  Similkameen  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the. route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway: and with the. advent of this road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ������  For Those Who  Invest Now.  ^^EEEEEPurchase a few Lots before the Railway Comes  For F^ull Particulars, Maps Etc.,  ��������� rt*H������F������L"V   TO ���������  The Hedley City Townslte Co'y, ltd.

The next thing I was aware  of I was on the bank,   but   the.   oars,  without even the formality of  a, good  bye were off for home over the falls.  There.was nothing for it  now  but to  get into  the canociand trust   to  luck,  so lashing our provisions and blankets  to the canoe we launched  once  more,  and with nothing but a paddle  in  the.  stern and a pole in the bow we finished  our journey, fortunately^ without mishap.    We passed   our oars en route,  but the conductor would.not stop  for  us to take them in.    We then paddled  across the Nit-i-nat  for our camp at  the   smokehouse.     Next    morning   a  stiff breeze was blowing down the lake  so we hoisted sail and started for home.  Wlien we arrived at   the   narrows,  it  was to find the tide running out swiftly and an awful sea outside,  and  only  one small paddle to   work   our    way.  Well as there was no way but   by water we had to attempt to reach a. house  on one side and keep out of the   swiftest current.    Imagine, if von  can   our  feelings when we found the canoe hail  been caught by the  rushing outward  tide.   Needless to say there were a few  moments of awful   suspense,   hut  just  then a back eddy caught the  prow  of  the. canoe and   whirled   us   round  and  into the bank, smashing the how,   but  fortunately delaying until we had time  to get out.    The next day at the   turn  of the tide  we  started  for  homo   hut  the sea was a great deal   heavier  than  we thought and  it tossed us up  considerably, and   compelled  us  to   keep  away off  shore,   but   we  lauded   safe  and sound.

Miss Elliott came down from W. C.  McDougall's on Out! Mile Creek to  spend Christmas with Hedley friends.  Mr, L. W. Shatford. returned to  Hedley on Monday night to spend  Christmas with his family and may  remain for a short time.  Elmo Henderson received a Christmas hamper from his home at Otter  Flat and and entertained some of his  friends therewith on Christmas Day.  Rev. E.'R. Bartlett will leave Hed-  lev for Ladner about the end of January. The name of J. Lionel Homer  who is now in England, at St. Augustine college, Canterbury, is spoken of  as a orobable successor.  The Hedley Rifle Association held  their shoot on Christmas Day when  some good scoring was made. As  some have yet to shoot, the.winners of  the. trophies are not fully decided on,  but it looks very much as if these will  all pass to T. D. Pickard who has  struck a winningstreak. At Fairview  on Monday he out-turkeyed all the  turkey shooters in a match there, and  loaded up with bubblyjocks until he  resembled the grand Turk himself.  Last week a test of coal burning was  made in the boiler hou.se of the Daly  Reduction Co., but the superintendent  doesn't regard if as being at all conclusive, or the results that were obtained as being sufficiently definite to  attach much importance to it. The  furnaces are now fitted with wood-  burning grates which did not give the  coal a proper chance to demonstrate'  the number of heat units which it  would produce if the conditions were  more favorable. Meanwhile they will  go on burning both wood and coal, and  next year doubtless the boilers will be  fitted for the burning of coal, which  should be laid down cheaply from  Princeton.  ������   BORN  "Lamiii.v-.U l-mi-view, December 2X  l'Ktfi.
