The programme of the Hedley Gold  Mining   Company   is   one   of    never  ending surprises, but as the surpiises  (ire agreeable ones there is no one will  find any fault.    When  the  new company took over the property in August  1909 they soon  began   to demonstrate  the fact that the mine was  no  longer  in   the  hands of a close corporation  shielding with mystery its operations  anel   concealing   its   gains.    When   a  dividend was paid it was stated openly  iu the manner of an open corporation  and the public had an   opportunity to  see that  the standard  dividend   pace  which the company had set was 12 percent! per annum  on  the outstanding  stock of the company, paid in quarterly instalments, and any   increase on  this which the  earnings of the  mine  would permit was distributed as extra  to the standard three percent, quarterly and was so specified. It immediately'  became a case of two per cent,  extra,  quarterly, making the quarterly dividends total five  per cent,  or 20 percent, per annum.  At this rate they travelled along  until the last quarter e>f 1911 when..10  pet cent, was disinbuted for'the quar-  tti, bunging the  yen's dividend clis  The Gazette  extends to Readers and Patrons  far $and near a Merry Christmas  and a Bright and Prosperous  New Year.

WHEN WBIT.INO Al'VERTISEBS PLEASE  MENTION   THIS PAPER  HEDLEY GOLD MINING CO.  42 Broadway  New York, Dec. 11, 1912  A quarterly dividend  of three per  cent. (3 p.c.) and an additional dividend  of twelve per cent.  (12 p.c) has this  clay been dec-hired on the outstanding  capital stock of this Company, payable  Tuesday, December 31.1912,  to stockholders of record  at 3 o'clock p.m.,  Monday, December 10, 1912.  Transfer books will be closed on  Monday, December 10, 1912, at3oelock  p.m. and reopened on Thursday, Jan.  2, 1913, at 10 o'clock a.in.  Hedley Gold Minino Companv  John D. Cl.vk.ke, Secy.  It has always been understood that  the tonnage month by month for the  year was well up anel that the recovery  was good. To pay out $300,000 in  dividends in a single year is certainly  a wonderful performance and when it  is known that the sum of $S36 520 has  already been disbursed by the new-  company 'in dividends and that thc  total amount which they paid for the  mine a little over three years ago was  less than that, the present owners are  certainly in a very enviable position.  But the best part of it is that the real  performances of the mine in the way  of production are apparently only beginning. More is known now of the  reserve of ore than was ever known  before- and the coming year is sure to  witness great expansion in the operations of the company.  The other dividends paid by metalliferous mines in the province during  the year are us follows:  The British Columbia Copper Company at Greenwood, $177,512.  ��������� to  the stability of our banking' system  and duly protect the public."  One of the features of the new bill  provides for an external audit, but  thought'of it if they had made thelast j does not S������ as far as some would de-  quarter's- dividend in 1912" no more sire in that it does not make an ex-  tin, n the usual quarterly 5 per cent., ternal audit compulsoiy except under  but the announcement to shareholders  certain  circumstances.    Some  of the  i Canadian banks of'.their-' own accord  have an external audit, and it is generally believed that had such been employed in the case of the defunct Ontario and Farmers banks the ill effects to-the shareholders would not  have been nearly so great.  While the new Act imposes more  rigid. supervision upon the banks it  also gives them greater freedom in  note circulation. It is not the intention to make the new Act loosen any  of he safeguards by which the old  Act was designed to keep the funds  of the banks in liquid condition. Thus  the new act does not permit the tying  up of funds of the bank in real estate  but it will permit the loaning of money  to farmers on the security of their  threshed grain and livestock.  In the matter of bank mergers about  which there has been so much outcry  of late, the new bill moves with caution. The Finance Minitsur does not  regard a bank merger as an unmixed  evil and showed where in cases it  strengthened the standing of the banks  and made them safer for the depositors.  The organization of new banks Avill  be hedged about with greater difficulty and strictness and the abuses  that characterized the inception of the  unfortunate Farmer's Bank will be.  impossible to repeat.  SIZING UP THE TIMBER  Twelve parties of the Forest Branch  Department of Lands, are. now jin-the  field.in .the .valleys, of the; Adams, Salmon, North Thompson, Omineca  and.  Mable Lake, and along the route' of the  G: T. P., making a rapid reconnaissance survey of two and one-half  million acres. The object of tlie undertaking, is to get a general idea immediately of the. natural resources,  outside of minerals. The foresters  will note the topography,, the bodies  of water and water powers, the extent of the absolute forest land and  the agricultural areas, the nature of.  the soil. and in a rough way, the  amount of. timber.   .  It is. a difficult work, especially  conisdering the season, but the men  are going to the task with a will, under Chief of Surveys H. K. Robinson,  and it is expected that in the course  of a few months sufficient information will be in hand to compile a map  which will prove a revelation to the  public.  Undoubtedly there are many tracts  of land, many water powers and tinir  ber areas which might be immediately  utilized if they were located with  greater accuracy than at present.  J. J.

Every day  new material is coming by mail from  all the countries of the Avorlcl. and  the correspondents and visitors to the  Branch add to the store of local knowledge which is entirely at the disposal  of those who will write for it.

Joseph was arrested by Sheriff Thorp  on the south half, near Omak, under  instructions from the Canadian officials. Joseph has rather a ragged  record, and is listed as a "bad Indian."  He will get what's coining to him unmitigated by sentiment or misplaced  sympathy, when he gets across the  line. It pays to be good in Canada.  Or at least it is expensive to be bad.���������  Oroville Gazette.  There is an air of business and bustle  at the railroad yards very pleasing to  note.     Carload  after carload  of ties  have arrived, more are  to come, and  as they are sidetracked a force of men  stack them up in   huge mountains at  placet, the most convenient to   handle  when the time conies tu push them to  the front.    The only steel that has arrived so far is that t'.i   lie   used   in   Unbuilding of the now   siding neetted for  the;   material   train-.      This   spur   is  already   under   way.    It  will   extend  from a point just   West   of  the   depot,  and south of the lines already   iu   use.  half   a   mile   to   the   eastward,   very  materially increasing  the  trackage in  the  local  yard.    The (tnlj- drawback  about  this improvement   is   that another track 1ms to be crossed getting  fi-om one part of  town   to   the other.  Kails for the branch should be arriving  the last of this  week,  and  the  track-  laying niaehino is  expected any day.  A  number of railroad  workmen are  already on the ground, and this  force-  will be greatly increased.    The boarding and bunkhouse  train   ->f ten   cars  air.veil the last of last week, and is in  p ace on a siding, all ready for occupancy.    It  will   he   thus  observed that  all-the required preliminary steps are-  being taken, so that when   the  time is  ripe work of construction can go ahead  without a halt.  Engineer Hill and bis assistants are  busy going over the line and arranging for leveling up the grade whereveu-  the wear and tear of time has worked  any damage, Mr. Hill reports that  the grade is in a much better condition  than could have been expected under  the circumstances, and that what repairs are recpiiird will consume but  little time, and cannot delay construction. Gangs are ac work on the grade  at several points between Oroville and  Ri verside. - Oroville Gazette. I'HK HKDLKY GAZETTI-  DEC 20. HU2.  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

When  parcels arc allowed to be. carried in  the mails at all there should be no  ���������objections to providing means by  which they could tie traced if they  should go astray. These untraceable  losses are known to be the cause of  much of .the correspondence that now  takes up the time of post office officials who are importuned by those  who had lost valuable parcels. If the  amount charged for the registration  of parcels anywhere through Canada  should be insutiieient to cover the cost  of extending registration on parcels  going to Britain, then proper inquiry  should he made'to ascertain what the  cost really would be and charge accordingly. But to refuse to register  altogether is about the surest way  -to encourage, dishonesty among post  office clerks who will take greater  chances of stealing articles in transmission through the mails when they  think there is a good chance in thc  absence of registration to get away  with the offence.  Tin? honors paid  the memory of t he  late   Whitelaw   Reiel,     United   States  ambassador   at    the     British     court,  showed  a touch   of kinship   that  will  find an echo iu the  hearts  and  minds  of many of the better class  of citi/.-'ns  in the   United States.     The memorial  service in Westminster Abbey which is  a dislincton   in death   granted only to  Britain's own greatest  ones,   and   the  offer  of   the   British   admiralty    of   a  British warship to convey the remains  Irick home to the:   United States, were  the  greatest honors   which   could   be  paid.    We   in   Canada  knew   how   to  appreciate it when   a   like   honor   was  paid to our  own   dead  statesman, Sir  John Thompson, eighteen  years  ago,  when as our Premier he was stricken  down   while   dining   with    the    late  Queen   Victoria   at    Windsor  Castle.  On that occasion the battleship chosen  was the Blenheim   on which  a Canadian was commander.    It is,  so  far as  we are aware,   the first instance!   in  which a United States ambassador at  the Court of St. James  has died at his  post of honor.

As they'  *had to go up the mountain side and  fell and hew timber and only had five  men working besides themselves, they  certainly did good work to get it built  in the time they were gone, for the  West Fork is a pretty wild stream in  high water. The Kettle Valley line  happens to lie located on the opposite  side of the river from .Beaverdell and  a bridge .was necessary to reach the  station.  School dosed on Friday.last for two  1 weeks' holidays. Miss Eastern, teacher  of the pi ii nary department, severs her  connection with the* school and left for  her home in Keremeos. She has given  very good satisfaction during, the.term  and the school is losing a good teaeher.  The Board have not y������*tdecided on a  successor but it is understood they are  ���������considering several applications.  The Hospital Board have no occasion  to make any apologies for the entertainment   under    their    auspices   on  -Saturday night last in Fraternity hall  when     the     Pan-American   Minstrel  Troupe gave  their performance.    All  the members of the troupe were colored,  in  varying shades,   hut all   ware  good singers and a few  were particularly good.    The turnout was indifferent  and   those who remained  away  missed hearing one of the best vocal  -aggregations that have been in Hedley.  It was pleasing to note (and it was a  notable fact)   that   die   music-loving  people of Hedley and those who could  ���������appreciate the. better class of music  were   fairly  well   represented.    If in  going they were actuated by the laud-  . able   desire   to   assist  so  worthy an  institution as  the  hospital they will  feel themselves doubly repaid  in   the  satisfaction of having discharged what  they felt to be a duty and in  having a  splendid  night's   entertainment   into  the bargain.    On Sunday evening the  troupe gave a. sacred concert which  was very much enjoyed and  brought  out a better crowd  than on  the first  night.    On this occasion no admission  was charged but a collection taken up.  F. H. French has bought Shatford's  store in Heelley. In the deal he acted  as seller and buyer. He took stock for  the Shatfords and then sold it to himself. The Gazette- says this is a delicate tribute to the honesty of Mr.  French, who has worked for the  Shatfords during the past sixteen  yeais. In these days of greejd, speed  and dishonesty, it. is a pleasure to read  something like this paragraph.���������  Lowory's Ledge.  Mr. and Mrs. John Jackson left on  Monday for Neirthport to spend Christmas. Mi-. Jackson expects to be back  in a week or two to look after some  unfinished business, but it is unlikely  that Mrs. Jackson will he back again.  It was seven years ago lust summer  when they Hist came to Hedley and  opened out the New Zealand Hotel  which   had   been   built   early in   the  summer, of 1905, and was given a  licence at the, Board meeting in .Tune  of that year. The hotel has been conducted in a very satisfactory manner  since and the town loses good ia.w  abiding citizens in their departure.  The latest report from the runaways  is to the effect that they a re in Nelson,  B.C., where Martin is working night  shift in a print shop in that town.  A. M. Hill, principal of the Hedley  school and in charge of the superior  High School room, went out on Monday's train en route to Kelowna: to  spend the Christmas holidays with  some relatives.there. .

Until the old approved method employed by rink men of heating the  water and sousing it on while hot is  adopted ,the ice will '-never' be got  smooth enough for comfortable skating, much less being in shape for  hockey or curling.

Lyon and Wesley are  home from Spokane for the holidays.  The little snow we have had is being  made good use of and sleighs were out  the. end of the week, but the coating  is still much too light to make comfortable going.  The Gazette has  received this week  a copy of the wall map given by the-  News Advertiser to push its circulation.  For downright usefulness to a British  Columbian it has everything in  the  way of a'newspapei* premium oradver-  tising medium   beaten a  mile.     The  name    " wall   map"    Is    altogether  inadequate to describe what it is, for  it is three wall maps, an atlas, a Can-  adian almanac, Gosnell's handbook, a  Canadian  parliamentary picture gallery,     an     illustrated    history    and  description of the Panama Canal and  nearly everything else in a nutshell.  As a map of British  Columbia alone-  there is nothing as useful or comprehensive has appeared anywhere that  we have seen.   They haven't forgotten  to put Hedley on it right in  its right  place, and so up-to-date is it that the  routes of the V. V.  & E.  and  K. V.  between here and the coast are accurately shown, on it.   The man ;who got  it up was certainly a genius  for compilation.     There are few of us  who  have libraries of any size that have  not given $20 or over for works of  reference that we're not as comprehensive or as useful.

The  ball was held this year  in   Fraternity  Hall owing to the difficulty of getting  a   piano    for   Shatford's   hall.     The  smaller dancing space with the   large  crowd that turned out made it ntther  congested, but by the exercise of self-  denial on the part of  the  members of  the order in order to give their guests  a good  time  the congestion   was not  noticed nearly as bad   us  it otherwise  would have been.    The hall was nicely  decorated,   the central   piece   of   the  decoration consisting   of   a   fireplace,  while other insignia of the order was  made to clo duty  in   the decoration  scheme.
