Vancouver,  Jan. 25.���������A new form  of hold-up operations near the international   border  just' revealed  here  shows that bogus immigration, officers  have robbeel foreign laborers of a total  'of $800  during   the   few  weeks   the  scheme has been worked.   It consisted  of officers boldly approaching the men  stating  they, were from the immigration department, and wanting to know  what amount   the   men   had.    They  are  required  to  have  $50 under the  'law.    All sums  less than this amount  r they, gathered  in, telling the laborers  they could   remain   in   Canada   and  nothing  more  would  he   said.     The  officers here are investigating.  FEWER/STRIKES  Industrial  Unrest is Passing and Labor  Situation Improved  Montreal, Jan,  26.���������The near future  [, will see the Ne*-, '1,'emere decree  withdrawn, insofar as it applies to Canada.  Steps have already 'been initiateel  and are now in progress, the success  ���������of which will remove, the vexed question of the validity of'mixed marriages  from the..field, of, practical consideration in tin's, con ii try.' An appeal is being made direct to tlie Vatican and to  His Hblitjuss the Pope personally,  'which is known to have the endorsa-  tipn.andtsuppprt of, tlie Roman,Catholic Church in Canada.  ,There is good reason for believing  that a decree will be issued by the  fPope withdrawing the Ne; Temere decree from operation in Canada-, as was.  clone in the case of Germany before  the judicial committee of tlie Privy  Council has passed upon the constitutionality of the Lancaster hill.  The result will be that the Ne Temere degree will cease to be an issue  in Canada, irrespective of any federal  legislation. The object which the Lancaster bill, is designed as assert will no  lunger be subjected to attack and the  necessity for the bill itself will'be removed.  Representations which are being  mado to the Vatican with the above  object in view art; backed by an exceedingly powerful element in Canadian society, both ecclesiastical and  lay, and carry with thein such weight  as to practically assure success. The  degree seems, therefore to be a. question of. time only, and the tinie is not  expected to be long.  The University ..Women's   Club in,  Vancouver have taken up the cudgels  for Miss Mabel French the New Brunswick barrister."  The Bank of Montreal is contemplating the absorption of another strong,  bank in a .merger that will still further  assert its lead, among the bank institutions of the country. The Royal Bank,  the Merchant's Bank and the Bank of  Nova Scotia are all mentioned as being  the likely ones to figure in the mergcu'.  Crowsnest coal mines are now mining more coal than ever before.      ,  The C. P. R.; is extending its system  of ready-made farms to British Columbia. ;'��������� ,.  .  Gold excitements are bre-aking out  here and theve.ail over-Manitoba. The  gold finds always consist of nugtrets  found in the crops of sundry fowls  anel Manitobans have taken to chasing  the hens and staking the roosts.        '  New York owes over a billion, or  twenty" million'more than the public  debt erf the United'State's.  Nelson and Prince Albert both had  small-pox outbreaks in their jails.  The Ottawa post office also had to.he  quarantined for an outbreak among  the clerks.  Vancouver had a'demonstration by  the unemployed find now the'city has  put them to work which will doubtless  be punishment enough for some.  Fernie is to have a 'rescue', station  and training school for life saving and  mine rescue.  London is to have a big railway  merger with a capital  of $175,000,000.  The Dominion government will not  disallow the Alberta and Great Waterways legislation of the Albeita government.  Kootenay wants the B. C. government to provide a pathologist for fruit  trees.  German socialists couldn't keep up  their winning streak in the German  elections. The country took alarm  and German patriotism came to the  rescue.

Please  The productive forest, area in 1902 on  the Grand Duchy of Hesse in Europe  amounted to 182.201-! acres. In general  tho standing timber is composed of  sixty-nine per cent, hardwood and  thirty-one per cent, coniferous forest.  The fir ranks first ���������imong tin; coniferous specii's. The total yield of lumber  in, 1008 was 4,575,000 cubic feel. Refuse in so far as it is not .suitable for  lighter lumber, such as laths or for  pulp, is used for firewood. The expenditures for salaries, forest cultivation and road building amount to approximately $751,0(111, and the total  gross income (from linnliei and firewood) was $I,.101,H:il. The capital represented by the forests ($52,005,95-1)  brought inteicst accordingly at 2.21  per cent. Where intensive forestry of  this kind is practiced, forest files are  unknown. Sufficient money spent on  Canadian Forest Ueserves would greatly reduce the lire danger, maintain an  adequate lumber supply for the country and in time become a source of  revenue to the Government.  Ottawa, Jan 21���������The strike record  of- the labor departmemfc shows that  there were only eight trade disputes  in existence during December, being  six less than in November and two less  than in December, 1910. About ten  firnrs anel slightly over 1,400 employees  were involved. The loss in working  days amounted to 40,000. The new  disputes of the month were of only  slight importance. There were only  four disputes unsettled at the close of  the year.  OUT OF DANGER  Sir Charles Tupper Well on the Road to  Convalescence  The New Westminster Columbian  tells of where the Trades and Labor  Council, in that city with only two  dissenting voices passed a resolution  to the effect that the socialist party  were a detriment to the cause of union  labor.

The Dominion government will assist in road construction of a. highway  across Canada and Hon. Frank Cochrane is introducing legislation at Ottawa, to that end.  McKenzie aiid Mann will erect, a five*  million dollar steel plant at Port  Arthur.

The  notices indicate that a power company has been formed or is in process  of formation and that they have exercised their right to record unrecorded water in the Similkameen river  and in the Ashnola river.  To those who have given any attention to the power situation at the present moment and consider the -limited  amount- of power already developed  and the cost per horse power of tlie  same and will compare the work it is  doing with that which remains to be  done, it will readily be seen that a  power company for this portion of the  valley is not a bit premature and the  time would appear to be ripe for tackling the question systematically and  vigorously.  With the present plant- there are  four months of the year when the  power is almost ideal both in its  cheapness and its effectiveness, but.  oven then it is lining worked to its  outside limit when it mines the ore,  takes care of the ore haulage and the  pumping and drives all the machinery of the reduction plant and then  employs almost every poilnd of what  is left over doing whateyer develop-  can lie done with if; but when those  four mouths are over and the coal  wagons are pressed into the service  the cost begins to jump up until a.  sum is reached that- is very much in  excess of what the proper profitable  price of horse-power should be.  Now if this high cost is to be cut-  down and provision matle for operating other properties in the camp or  for increasing materially the amount of  development each year in the Nickel  Plate group of mines, it is clear that  the unused waters of the .Similkameen  inusL be sought to solve the problem,  audits waters, if harnessed, will supply white coal at a cost very much less  than the present cost per horse-power  and keep matters on easy street for all  the year round instead of the four  months period of high water in  Twenty-mile.  The effect  which such   a   development would have in the camp gener-1  ally would lie hard to estimate. It is  morally certain' that much of the  stagnation which has existed here in  the niatter. of having other properties  taken up has been due. to the ease with  which capital has lieen frightened off  on the power bugaboo; but if a. power  company took hold of the. niatter and  went, to the cost of' developing 2000  horse power or more they would prove  powerful allies in working to induce  milling capital to come, in and develop  other properties to provide a,still larger market for their power, and niinihg  capitalists would be more ..ready, to  take hold,if they were assured of being able to secure ample 'power at a  reVasqnable cost instead of having to  face the necessity of developing power  themselves and take- tlie risk of that  expenditure' in addition to their own  for mine development.  That .is the situation so far as the'  town is concerned, and if we try to  put ourselves5 in the place of the pre-;  sent operating company which has  been, the author and sustainer of our  town life, it would seem no less desirable from their point of view,' for it  should be a pleasant relief to them to  shake off the present' high/cost of  power which is forced on them for  eight months in the year and which,  if they were forced to go into the de-  lopment of -further power themselves  as they undouhtedly may have to do,  would tie up that much more of their  capital and thus add to the fixed  charges which must go,against their  operating expenses year by year. They  have now set a very lively pace in-tlie  t' ,.���������:-���������' ��������� '  25 per cent dividend in the past'year-  and if that is to be maintained it will  require abundance of development  work each year to. have always on  hand a sufficient quantity of higher  grade ore to sweeten up the low grade  or the lower grade pre'would soon lie-  gin to .accumulate on thein and this  would bo sure to lead later on to a  dropping of the grade. As long as the  grade remains comfortably high the  excessive cost of power is not felt very  much, but once the, grade drops and  theie is a, large accumulation of low  grade ore, then is when the cheaper  power will become a desideratum.  It would seem therefore that in the  interests of everybody concerned the  advent of a good strong power company which would be prepared to develop power without stint would be a  move which we could all wish godspeed and there would seem to be no  reason why such an undertaking  should not be a money-making venture  for the concern taking hold of it.  ANNOUNCEMENT  The Gazette announces to its readers  THE BANK OF  that the stockholders of the Gazette j  Printing and Publishing Co.. Limited, j  have decided to disincorporate and to  that end the. necessary preliminary  steps have been :takch for winding up  the nintirs of .the company under, the  winding ,ip clauses of the Companies  Act and a. liquidator appointed to effect- the same.

A  man whose main  mission in life seems  to  be    to cast   contumely   upon   the  memory and woi-ks  of his dead father  is  surely not   the  kind  of -man who  should  bo singled  out for  honor  and  distinction at the hands of the British  electors.     On one occasion he had the  impudence and the  nauseating egotism which led hi in to state in a public  address    that   his   late   father,    Lord  Randolph Churchill "would be known  in   history  as   the   father of  Winston  Churchill" and if there was one action  or  event   in    the   meteoric   career 'of  Randolph  Churchill   which  tended to  gain for him lasting distinction it was  his vigorous stand   against Irish home  rule   when   Gladstone's   measure   was  defeati'd.    in that famous campaign it  was Randolph Churchill   who stood in  Ulster   hull,   Belfast,   and   said   that  "Ulster  will   fight and   Ulster will  be  right." and now to have his son league  himself with the nationalist home rule  element and  want to choose the same  hall  in   which  to practically give his  dead father the lie    is too revolting to  be lightly dismissed  and it is no wonder   it   has   maddened  the    loyalists  of Ulster.

There are men in Medley holding  licences under the Liquor Licence Act  'who-dp not deserve to have thein  when they cannot obey '���������the law.

It is all nonsense to say that it  is hangers-on who get the liquor for  these interdicts and that' the licjuor  dealers are ignorant of where the  liquor is going, when they sell bottles  over the bar., When they will take  the risk and show such utter disregard  of the law: there should be mighty  little sympathy, if jiny heads cpine^olf  Our'!

A man who  went from here to Princeton found  the 'rumor current that the Hedley  Gold Mining Co. had sold out their  tramway, water rights and reduction  works to the Kingston.  The soft, spell of last week put an  end to the sleighing and it is not at  all probable that there will he enough  snow to make any more, sleighing this  winter. There is very little room for  complaint on that score, however, as  there was good . sleighing for a little  over a month and that is particularly  long for Hedley.  Bank robbers'ire playing rag with  the bankers and police in Vancouver.  The latest haul was'made by a, couple  ���������of unmasked men who entered the  branch of the Royal Bunk in that city  on Main st., herded the manager antl  the stall' into the vault, cracked one  of the: clerks over the head with the  butt of a revolver and cleaned out all  the cash there was in sight and made  nn easy and clean escape.  There are most encouraging reports  of the condition of Twenty mile lake  for this time of the year. Long before  this tune in past years they found it  necessary to begin pumping but this  year it is not anticipated that there  " -will be any necessity for pumping a  single pound of water at the; lake.  There is still a reserve of about five  feet above the running out point and  although thoy are using enough water  now to supply 200 horse-power in helping out the steam plant it is only reducing thc water supply at the lake at  the rate of about a foot a month. Then  there is a good supply of snow in the  hills and a prospect for a good deal  more before next June, and in a couple  of months' more the melting snows  should begin to do their work. Altogether the water situation on twenty  mile is exceedingly bright this season  with this surplus to the good and the  ditch which is expected to increase the  season's supply by about forty per  cent.  ���������SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  HOSPITAL MEETING  The adjourned annual general meet  ing of the Hedley Hospital was held  in Fraternity hall on Tuesday night.  The usual-slim attendance was experienced with the exception that on this  occasion half a dozen ladies were present.

THE FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE  between a Mutual and a Stock Life Insurance  Company is that in the Mutual the Policyholders are the Proprietors; and in the Stock  the Policy-holders are only Customers and, as  such, have no controlling voice in the management of the Company.
