Everiitliimj New and  First-Glass  Bar supplied, with the Choicest  Liquors and Cigars, and Special  Attention   paid   to   tin?   Table.  . The Kettle Valley railway, subsidized by the Provincial Government  according to the mandate of the electorate on Nov. 25, will run through  tlie Hope mountains to a connection  with the main line of the O. P. R. at a  point in the vicinity of Ruby creek  station,, according to a statement  made by a well known railwayman.  The; passage, of the Hope range will  be'eff ected over the tracks of the V.  V. &; B. railway, declaras thisisource  of information.  ''There is ho doiibt whatever but  that there is room for two railway  lines in the valley of the Coquihalla  river, but when the GreafrNorthern  railway - biiilds. the V. -V.:& E. /clown  that stream from the summit to the  .town of.. Hope, a distance of about 37  miles, and when the Kettle Valley  line caii; obtain ^running; rights oyei'  the tracks, why should two roads be  built?" pursued the railwayman.  " "The V. V. & E., I understand, has  secured a 2.5 maximum grade east-  bound over the-Hope raiige and that  maximum;; extends ^oyer but a few  miles of road; this grade is quite prac*  ticable, even for a transcontinental  line,, asfwitness the main line .of the  C. P. R. between Field and Hectors  where the grade was 4.4 per cent, till  oyer'$1,000,000 was- spent in tunnelling in ! order to cut it to 2.2 per cent;  The V. V. & E. railway on that section - i'o'f " the^ road in *the...y icinity of  Anarchist mountain alreadypossesses  a stretch of road where thejfrade is a  a little greater than 2.5 nag^ent., so it  can readily be seen^|B;t the short  stretch of hejyij^grade, over the Coquihalla s't'raimit is really not a very  great obstaclekto the utilization of this  route between Midway and_ Vancouver.   '   . "  "The- Kettle Valley line will have  no difficulty in securing running  rights over the V. V. ,& E. but of  course it will have to pity for them,  possibly o'iV the basis of a portion of  the cost of construction of the road  with a fixed annual i-ate of interest.  Such an arrangement-would be.much.,  better for the Kettle Valley line than  the building of ii, road paralleling the  V. V. '& E. for 40 or 50 miles through  the mountains. This renting of running rights between railways is not  such an uncommon thing as the pullic  seems to imagine. Why, right here  in British Columbia there is an instance of such an arrangement between the Great Northern.and the C,  P. R. whereby the former runs trains  over the tracks of the latter from  Troup junction right into the city of  Nelson, and I believe even makes use  of the C. P. R. station in that city. It  will be easy for the Kettle Valley line  to make arrangements with the V.  V. & E. and I have no hesitation in  saying the former company will never  build across the Hope divide.  "The Kettle Valley line, from what  I have learned of its plans, will build  a line from the town of Hope ddwn  the Eraser on the same bank as the  town is situated���������which is the bank  opposite to the one on which the  main line of the C. P. R. is situated  ���������as far as a point about opposite  Ruby creek; there the Fraser will be  crossed on a low-level bridge and a  junction effected with the main line  of the U. P. R,  '���������Owing  to   the great difference in  the altitude  between   the   main   line  of the  C. P. R.   at Hope station and  the flat on which  the town  of Hope  is situated  on   the   opposite   side  of  the river  from Hope station it would  be impossible for  the Kettle Valley  line  to join  the C, P. R.  anywhere  near Hope station  unless a high-level  bridge    were    built.      A    high-level  crossing    at   this   point   would   also  necessitate the Carrying of the tracks  on  a  high  trestle  over  the.  town  of  Hope to a point far up the Coquihalla  valley,  where  the grade of the V. V,  & E. line  would be encountered at a  level  practically  equal to that of the  high  bridge crossing  the Fraser.    It  will  thns   be seen  that the project of  building  a  line down  the river  to a.  low-level  crossing in  the vicinity  of  Ruby creek has every  advantage,, in.  fact the crossing   of   the   Fraser  at  Continued on Pago Fuoi-  REFUSE MILLIONS FOR  ' HIDDEN CREEK.

K. -Rodgers.  ��������� The. Hidden Creek, property, has  been the wonder of the,mining world  in this country ever since it was  opened up by Messrs J. T. Hillis and  S.!S. Raymond of Vancouver; who  bought 'it������������������'������������������iis a prospect from Mr:  Joli n Flewi n <:������������������ ofv Port Si mpson.. It  is a; copper-gold property /which , under development has shown J|ic,i;easr  ingiy high value's and the amount' of  ore'in sight is tremendous!, v'[/ ''''  ' Messrs'Hillis and - Raymond opened  upi theolead at several ,points, did  considerable; surface work, built a  wharf and ; road, , drove tunnels, and  put the ��������� big prospect oh. a shipping  basis.''��������� As the* work was! prosecuted,  the' high values secured-in the ore, as  well j as^the..growth of theV known extent of ,the mineralized bodies, ,,spon  put the property out of the prospect  class. Over, a year ago Mr. M. K.  Rodgers, inspected Hidden Creek; and  was' so satisfied that-; it could be  turned into a great producing, mine  that he J.ostInpVtime,, in negotiating  for its purchase.  A deal' was finally arranged by  which Messrs Hillis, Raymond and  others interested sold for the siim'of  $130,000, a substantial cash payment  being made. Last week" the lust,payment of $40,000 was made1 by Mr. Rodgers and his associates.  During the short period Mr. Rodgers has been in control of the property he has spent over $100,000, in  further development to demonstrate  the immensity of the ore deposits and  test the general run of values. That  results have, been as- satisfactory a's  anticipated is shown by the fact that  the new owners aw. now making arrangements foi- the installation of a  large hydro-electric power plant at  the falls of Hidden creek foi- the operation of a tramline and other works  af an extensive character requiring  power. Altogether over. $250,000 is  to be expended in placing the Hidden  creek mines among the biggest of the  coast.  Vancouver Province)  Seattle. Dec. 22.���������Mr. J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the V. VV&E.  railway, in an interview here discussed the question of grades over the  Hope mountains between Princeton  and Hope.  "Without taking into consideration  the tunnel project which will not be  carried out in the near future, the  Hill engineers have been successful in  locating a line that will give a maximum grade of eitht-tenths of one percent, as against westbound traffic."  said Mr. Kennedy. "The maximum  grade as against east-bound traffic  will, of course, be heavier. The figui*e  for 20 - miles' of the distance is 2A percent, and for an additional 15 miles it  will amount to li per cent. On the  mountain section going east should  also be included a two-mile section  along the Coquihalla lake, and constituting virtually a dead level for  that distance.  "When the tunnel project is carried  out, a project, by the way, that is not  a pressing one, it will reduce the summit by 675 feet, accomplish a saving  30 miles in the route, as well as cut off  six miles from the.length of the 2������ percent, grade."  SHOOTING AFFRAY  Railway Employees on Construction Gang  Begin Christmas Morning with  Some Gun Play.  It is strange that "while the entire  work of building on the V. V. &'E.  passed without any outbreak of violence, although there were at times  large numbers'of men employed and  these often of mixed nationalities who  were credited with being ready in the  use of -firearms, the good record could  not have been maintained clear  through. Unfortunately, however, it  was not to be. The camp at present  maintained at the old sawmill was the  scene of a shooting affair on Christinas  morning. Some of the men who had  been bowling up on Christmas eve  went back to camp after midnight  and forthwith started to give trouble.  Who is responsible for the opening of  hostilities is not yet known as the case  has not come to a hearing, being remanded when first called, to permit  further evidence being secured.  Melvin Holmes received a bullet  through the leg. The man who did  the shooting was George Kurilo who  is held on that charge, and Holmes  and his companion John .Smith are  each 'held on two cases of assault  against Kurilo and Frank Sydney.  The affair was reported as soon as it  happened and Dr. McEwen called. The  doctor reports the wound to be making satisfactory progress and no serious consequences are  feared from it.  Tlie number of railway accidents  during the year ending June 30th,  1900, was 00,711, or 2,701 killed and  03,020 injured. It is a decrease on last-  year, but still too large.  Three engineering1 parties of the V.  V.&E. railway - now in :the field are  adding the finishing.touches to the  work of retracing and revising the  route across the Hope mountains from  Princeton to Hbpe.'and thence through  the Fraser river valley to a-junctiori.  with the completed section at Abbots-  ford. With slight modifications the  route will be.almost identical with the  line run"in 1905, and plans and profiles  of which are on filein the lands depart-  at Victoria.  . As was recently announced in The  Province, tenders have just been called for the construction of the section  from Abbotsfoi d to Hope, a distance  of 50 miles; and also for the building  of an 18-mile section from Princeton  west up the.Tulameen river to Otter  Flat, a distance, of 18 miles.  The  new  feature of interest   is the  announcement that Mr. Hill will not  carry out the tunnel project; instead  he will secure water grades that are  regarded iis remarkably low, as evidenced in the proceding interview  with Chief Engineer Kennedy in Seat  tie. Ultimately, it is said, the tunnel  will be driven.  Going west from Otter Flat the line  Will follow Otter creek to Otter Summit, thence cross over to the Cold-  water rivL-r and ascend it to the so-  called Coquihalla summit. Thence  the line will run down the -hanks of  the Coquihalla to Hope, u distance of  55 miles from Princeton.  If tra.fnc conditions ever justify the  expenditure, a tunnel a trifle under  seven and a half miles long will be  driven through the summit, shortening the distance thirty miles, and reducing the highesL elevation attained by no less than 675 feet. The tunnel would also cut off six miles of that  section where a '2S per cent, maximum  grade as against eastbomul traffic will  be encountered.  According to the detailed surveys  made during the past summer the  eastern portal of the tunnel would be  located at a point on the Tulameen  rivur, and the western portal on the  Couuihalla river on the western slope  of the mountains.  Construction on the two sections for  which tenders have just been called  will likely be started early in February  It is unlikely that the building of the  summit sections on either side will be  undertaken before the other work  shall have been completed, owing to  the cost involved in packing in supplies over a- mountain trail.  The festival of St. John the Evangelist was observed by the Masons of  Hedley in a Masonic service held on  Sunday, 26th inst when Rev. A. H.  Cameron, the venerable chaplain ot  the lodge preached an excellent sermon  dealing partially with the antiquity of  the institution but more particularly  with the principles and tenets of the  order and the moral lessons it was intended-to teach. The thoroughness  with which the subject was handled  was most gratifying to, the members  of the order who listened to him.  Unfortunately the dispensation from  the Grand Lodge authorizing the procedure was'only received a few days  before and this left insufficient time to  make arrangements for having the  brethern of adjoining places take part  in the service.  INSTALLATION  On Monday night (St. Johns Day)  the regular installation of officers took  place when W. Bro. A. Megraw, as  installing master, assisted by W.Bros.  A. H. Cameron and J. D.

The  reasons    for   this   are   -many.  Never before were the issues at  stake so   closely allied  to problems    which   we   ourselves in  Canada have to deal -with, as in  the present instance when tariff  reform and the functions of the  upper chamber are sought to be  made the leading issues by the  respective  parties.     A curious  point of difference between the  present and former contests regarding  the issues at stake is  that the attitude of each party  is not nearly so  distinctly defined as formerly, each party  seeming to have a propaganda  of its  own, and each opponent  apparently  endeavering to ignore  the  issue   raised   by  the  other.     Thus the more influential  Aving   of the  Conservative  party declare for tariff reform  to  the    extent of  abandoning  the. old  free  trade fetich, and  about all the opposition to this  which  the Ministry  is  putting  up is to slight its importance as  an  issue.    The  Liberals on tho  other  hand  seem to  base their  whole  claim to be  returned on  the ground   that  the House of  Lords rejected their budget.  So  mum  have   the Unionists been  on  this  point that Lord Rose-  berry   who is altogether  out of  touch   with the  Asquith crowd  asks    the  Unionists   to   define  their  position  on it,   inasmuch  And . now Admiral Schley  wan ts the Danes to prove an  alibi for Peary too and thus  clear hi in of the charge of having monkeyed' 'with that north  pole.  Even the Danes don't think  Cook was ever at the north pole;  the Explorers' Club know he  wasn't at the top of Mount Mc-  Kinley. Is there any place he  can prove that he really has  been?  ��������� ' ' "'" .. **���������,  Lloyd-George appears to be  getting all the cheering, but it  will be a funny thing if the  other chaps don't get the votes.  If we in Canada are to judge of  the intelligence of the British  electors by the kind off argument that is being presented to  them we could come to no other  conclusion than that those  who are" making the more  flimsy and frothy appeals are  of the impression that any old'  thing will go.

Most of the users have regarded this  and up around the works all have been  required to do*' so,=. but arouncLtown  there are ii feWy who for reasons best'  known to themselves leave their lights  burning the whole time whether they  need them or not. Even it useim weie  getting their lamps lenewed free of  chaigo wb.en they . bui'n out theie  would stilll be no' reason why they  should keep them binning iny longei  than may be lequiied for the work in  hand, but when burnt-out lamps must  be renewed at their own expense,  those who keep lights burning when  not required1, if,they ai,e( doing it for  cussedness, are merely biting off their  nose to .spite their face. For the past  four years very little consideration  was given to users of light, and they  might often have been using it as well  as not if the management had only  thought so. If-anything, occurred to  lesson ''the pbwer and the amount of  inice in thewneswas gptting a little  short the first thing done was to turn  out the town lights no matter if fifty  or more unused lights  up around the  woilcswere going full blaze.

It, is quite a sure thing that had the  old management  been   in   charge   of  the   Nickel   Plate    during    the past  month everything   would   have been  shut down tight long before this time.  Never before have we  had so. severe  weather in December as this year; and  to make matters worse so far as running the   mining plant is concerned,  there has  been no snowy mantle to  help out���������nothing   but   bare ground  and everything open  to frost.   There  were two   zero   snaps  in December,  with only a few days' interval between  and the   mean temperature   for   the  month has beeni considerably below  that of former   years   for the same  month.    As might be expected under  such temperatures, anchor ice formed  in the. flume   in large quantities, and  this was followed by solid formation  on the bottom and sides.   Had such an  experience confronted the disconsolate  one , it would  have  been   "qui bono"  and ".shut her down," but the present,  manager- is more disposed to look for-  a remedy, and   by a little  readjustment here and there  manages to keep  things running profitably and fairly  smooth in spite of it all  Gold Dredges Qet the ���������*old  We control by direct lease from the Canadian Government, One  Hundred and Five (105) miles of Dr'cdgoble Gravel on the Stewart  River, eighty miles from Dawson City, in the Klondike. We have  tested the gravel thoroughly with Drills, and it hat been proven rich  throughout. As a matter of fact, the site of our holdings was recognized,  even before the Gold Rush in 1898, to be rich in Gold���������-it is a  matter of public record that the Gold is there���������but to located an to be  difficult to obtain by any hand method.' And Fifty 'dredges could  not exhaust,this area in a Hundred years.  With a proposition so rich, the payment of dividends and thts  continued work of development can easily gp. hand in hand.  To hurry this work of development now, we are marketing Treasury Stock in our Company. Three thousand stockholders, many of  them well-known in the Canadian country,.are already on our books.  This necessity for Capital���������a Dredge costs upwards of $100,000  ���������furnishes your opportunity to participate in a wonderfully rich venture.  Our Company it, formed of the pick of broad-minded business men  ���������Governor Ogilvie, of the Yukon Territory���������known and .respected-by  the whole Canadian country, at its head.

The steep hills and. rugged(mountains of the Klondike region give  rise to numberless email streams,' which become from time to time  with the melting of'the'snows���������the cloudbursts .and .heavy rains to  which the .country is subject���������raging torrents. \  The, grinding of, the glaciers and the erosion of ...these turbulent  streams bring down rocks,.sand,and gravel from the mountain depths  and fastnesses where man has never yet penetrated.  In a region where ledges of Gold-bearing Quartz arc a prominent,  feature in the formation, it is natural that these forces of Nature should,  tear away quantities of exceedingly rich material.  This process has been going on for ages. The hidden stores of  Gold away in the hills', are inexhaustible.  The rush of the torrents is so impetuous that even boulders of  considerable size are borne in their course, and only when Nature  Has spent her6elf'do they find a resting place.  The broad creek's���������the wider reaches of ��������� the river���������quiet the  stream, and the Gold, in the form of, nuggets, grains and flakes,  rapidly settles. Gold is very heavy���������heavier than the rock itself, and  once it finds a resting place, sifts down through the light surface mud  and sand until, by force of Gravity, it reaches bedrock.  Where the courses of streams have been changed, the richest Placer  Mines are found in their old beds. But in the larger, constant streams,  these rich deposits are beyond the reach of merely human agencies.  It remains for the Gold Dredge���������following the heavy nuggets,  and particles of Gold down  through the overlying strata in the bars  and. benches of the river,  to recover these stores of Gold from the  treasure-house of Nature.  The long arms of the Dredge, with their endless chains of bucket  scoops, search down, down���������through 6ixty feet of water, sand, and  gravel, if need be���������until the Gold sediment, and finally bed rock itself,  often overlaid with an' actual coverlet of pure Gold���������the hoarded  accumulation of centuries���������io reached.  The Gold Dredge brings up this material in wholesale quantities  ���������treat3 it with scientific accuracy to save the finest particles of  value���������separates the dross���������and for the first time lays bare to the hand  of  man  tin's Virgin Gold.  While personally present on our property at Stewart River,  Yukon Territory, Klondike, September 1st, I saw with my own  eyes a clean-up from our first and smaller dredge, netting $517.50,  and this was preceded only a few days by another clean-up from  the same drodgc amounting to $1283.86 in Gold. I saw this Gold,  fathered from the gold-saving table* of our Dredge, moulded into  bullion���������a splid bar of Gold.  With tuch results in sight, we are bending every effort to get twenty  cftbstsc mammoth Dredges at work on our property.

Taylor, of Wood-.  '   stock,  Out.,   is   notable.     An appro-'  i. priate Christmas tinge is given to the  first two stories and adds something  to the.interest both will evoke. Hunting, fishing and exploring papers,  widely different in character and displaying in a remarkable way the  wonderful resources of the Dominion  in these.several respects, fill a number  no sports can afford' to miss.
