This lady has been dazzling the people  of Hamilton, Ont., by a .series of  seances to crowded houses, junking the  hair stand on end by her wonderful  revelations. She asks her hearers lo  write any question they my desire, on  a piece of paper which they are allowed to hold in their hand,- while she. on  the stage in a hypnotic state, calls  out their names, answers questions  and gives advice. ' At one of these  meetings Richard Russell was present,  and the Hamilton Review (pinkun)  tells the rest.  ���������'On   L'Yidav  last one of   the  most  Mr. and Mr.������. .1. R: C. Cootes entertained a number of friends at their  residence on Webster Street on Wednesday, the 7th, by way of celehrating  the ]0th anniversary of their wedding.  Mr. and Mrs. Cootes are good entertainers, and the company enjoyed a  particularly pleasant evening. Progressive Hearts took up the time until supper, after which some othei and  new features   that' afforded pleasant  diversion  were  engaged  in.    Among  these was that of horse-racing with  sonic of its modern 'concomitants of  pool-selling etc., which were most  unique in their apt- imitation of tho  real thing. Tho presents of tinware  were also most interesting, comprising  everything from a large handsome  bathtub to a nutmeg grater. If the  next forty years deal as kindly with  Sir. and Mrs. Cootes as the past ten  have, they will celebrate a healthy  vigorous golden wedding.  The New C. P. R.

'��������� Will I be successful in obtaining  the capital to carry through the enterprise in which I,am engaged and will  it be a success." ���������>��������� The answer came  quickly. ���������' You- will- get the capital  soon.

Miss Fay  was quite excited and Mr. Pingree,  the'..manager, asked "Where is this  property?" and the reply was "Fair-  view, British Columbia."  Shortly after,'. Miss Fay told S. S.  King in reply to a question "Where  shall I invest to get large returns r ",  "to buy the Fairview, British Columbia, mining stock as it was a splendid  investment.'" Mr. Russell has lived in  Hamilton all his life until about eight  years ago when he became president  and managing director of the Fair-  view -corporation, a large mining and  land company in British Columbia.  A reporter called on him at his office  in the Sun Life.Building. Mr.-Russell,  informed him that he had written the  question four days before and was  more than surprised when it was  answered.  On Saturday morning he wrote further questions to Miss Fay, and the  answers received on Monday morning  were wonderful, as not only were the  questions answered fully, but information given relative to a. sale of a large  interest in. the property, which no one  The Vernon Okanagan thus describes the new steamer that the 0.

R. propose  building at  the Landing for  the  Okanagan  Lake  service.     The   steamer    will    be    the  largest of any the C. P. R. have in the  Interior,  not excepting   any  of their  fine fleet in the   Koofenays.    She will  measure 230 feet over all, -with 40 ft..  beam, and will have GO first class state  rooms, and spacious saloon and dining  hall.   The engines will be 21 in. x S ft.  and will "be of 1,000 horse power, which  will give an average speed of 20 knots  an hour.     When the new steamer is  completed, likely some 'time  in July,  she will make'a daily  trip each way  between the Landing and   Penticton.,  The old Aberdeen  will  then  be used  principally as a  tow for the two S-car  capacity freight barges that are now  being built.   The new  boat  will cost  ninety thousand dollars, and with the  additional docks and barges, the C. P.  R, will spend at the  Landing,   in the  next few months, about one hundred  and fifty thousand dollars.    The ship  carpenters,   numbering    seventy-five,  will be brought   from  Nelson  just as  soon   as   tho   new   C. P.

Last week they had delightful weather  at the mine all week.  The diamond drill has commenced  work on the Humming bird for J. J.  Marks. Last week the Spokane drilling Co. who had made the arrangements to do drilling for Mr. Marks  wanted to take the drill to the Nickel  Plate, having made a contract with  the Vale Mining Co. to do some further explorntorv work for them. Mr.  Marks, however, wouldn't stand for  this and entered a vigorous kick  against the owners of the drill With  the result that, it was not taken off  his ground. It appears, however, that  it was not the intention of the Spokane  Drilling Co. to jump the job and go  back o.. their arrangement with Mr.  Marks, but merely to borrow that particular drill for work on the Nickel  Plate until such time as they could  get in another drill lo do the work on  the Humming-bird.  ( From Our Special Correspondent)  The Legislature has under consideration several important bills at the  present time. One of these is the proposal to authorize the establishment  of a MeGill University College in the  province. The bill to provide for this  was introduced by the Minister .of  Education, who explained that although there was an "act passed sixteen years ago to provide for a university nothing had been done towards  establishing such an institution. He  explained McGill's object, which was  at the first to consist of two full years  in arks, two full years in ������������������pplied  science and a course in chemistry and  biology, looking to a. medical course.  It was expected that the course would  from time to time be extended.  The bill while iu committee came in  for some considerable criticism on the  part of Victoria's members, who apparently are sore because MeGill University has decided to .locate the  college in Vancouver. In the course  of the discussion it wa.s brought out  that MeGill so far has'.asked for no  monetary aid from the Government.  If it were asked, later the Minister of  Education said it would be considered  on its merits. A plea was put forth  that the establishment of'such an institution would preclude the possibility  of ever establishing .a university in  British Columbia and that it would  also shut out other universities from  seeking similar*'rights in the province.  The members of the Government denied that airy such result would follow, i  Premier McBride intimated that there  was no intention of shutting out othei*  universities, on the contrary the Government would welcome all institutions that would come seeking similar  After an illness of about a year and  a half, Eleanor Hazel, beloved wife  of Dr. Morton D.

Stitt of Vancouver. She first  qualified for a public school teacher,  taking the various examinations, but  never taught. At the age of 21 she  entered upon a .course of nursing and  graduated as a professional nurse at  the end of.three years, after which she  had many difficult cases that made  serious inroads upon'her strength. A  severe attack of-typhoid'fevcr left her  in a very weakened condition, and  before she had regained sufficient  strength   she went   back  to nursing.  Card of Thanks.

It was stated that Sir William McDonald had promised $3000 a  year for a 'term for the college, while  it was likely this might be increased  if the needs demanded it.  Price Ellison has introduced a bill to  make it possible that private persons  or companies may make connection  with any telephone line or lines autb  orized by act of the Legislature. The  bill provides also that the rales to be  charged by the line connected with  shall be fixed by the Lieut.-Governor-  in-Council in unincorporated districts  and by the municipal council in incorporated districts. Another provision  is made in the bill by which the rates  to be charged by all telephone companies shall be subject, to revision by  the Lieut.-Governor-iii-Couneil or the  municipal council according to whether the companies operate in unincorporated districts or municipalities.  The bill introduced by J. 1:1. Haw-  thornthwaite to amend the Provincial  Elections Act by fixing the deposit of  candidates at $50 instead of $200 as at  present, passed its second reading on  a close division, the vote being :  Yeas : Messrs.

King, Brown, Murphy,  Jones, Oliver, J. A. Macdonald, Henderson. Munro, Paterson, Cameron,  Tatlow, Cotton, Ellison, Fulton,  Grant���������15.  When the bill comes into committee  it is likely that important changes will  be made in it. Mr. Bowser will move  to make it $100, and other changes  will undoubtedly be proposed.  Among the bills which have passed  their second reading during- the week  is the one to incorporate the Southern  Okanagan Railway Co. The bill was  introduced by A. H. B. Macgowan  of Vancouver, A member who ever  since his visit to the Similkauieen has  taking charge of a bad case of tuberculosis, thus getting into her system,  by   infection,   the deadly germs,  for  consumption was a thing unknown in  her family.     Although   declining   in  general health, no special lung trouble  was' apparent in the earlier stages, and  not until two specialists had decided  was it recognized  that  the case was  serious.    In April last she was hi ought  to Hedley iu a very  weak  condition,  thc'difficult trip by stage proving most  trying.    By September   the  improvement was so marked  that  hopes for  recovery  which  had  been abandoned  earlier, were-restored.   It was only the  skilful   treatment and  constant,  care'  which   she   received,   combined with  her   own   marvellous  vitality,  which  kept her alive so long,  for  with  the  late fall the disease, which could not  be checked,   had continued  to  make  rapid  headway   and  had greatly, reduced her strength.     Through  it all  she was- most  cheerful   and 'uncomplaining   and   always   considerate  of  those about her, for her own   knowledge as a professional  nurse enabled  her to understand  the cares of those  waiting  upon   her.    Although   young  in years, her life of toil in ministering  to   others as  well   as  her own   long  illness   seemed' to  have developed a  beautiful character.    Too ill when she  came to Hedley, to go about, her personality nevertheless'appealed to the  people and made for her warm friends.  During her illness her sisters, Mrs. C. F.  Cotton and Mrs. Hunt, of Vancouver,  and Miss Garcia Stitt, came to Hedley  to see her.     Miss Stitt accompanied  her to Hedley and remained for.three  months and Mrs. Cotton was here for  over   a   .month.     Her   mother,   Mrs.  Stitt. remained with her most of the  summer,   returning   to Vancouver in  September, and came back again early  iu January, remaining with her until  the end   came.     Miss   Elliott,   nurse,  assisted   Dr.   McEwen    in    the   long  watches  of   the. weeks-preceding the  end.    The   funeral   on  Saturday was  very largely attended.

The. following verses were received  by Mrs. McEwen last November from  a friend in the east and were greatlv  prized by her. An additional interest  is lent to them when it is known that  the friend who sent them died three  weeks ago after a week's illness,  HON' VOVAOK.

Vor  Victoria,   and  the  opening  ol'  that,   constituency, which will  most probably  return him. although   it  would  look, from nmrmurings still existent in  the   Liberal   ranks   iu  Vancouver,   that;   no    dust  nor  ashes   would  mark   his  defeat.  Whether the Conservatives will  oppose him is  not yet known,  but in all probability  they  will  refrain from  doing*  so, which,  for various reasons, would  appear  to  be  the better course,  even if the temptation is  very  strong* to  put him  on  his  defence and require an  explanation for those pledges which he  made with reference to the immediate costruction of the G. T.  P.   in  British   Columbia.     The  fact    remains,  however,  that  Conservatives in British Columbia are pleased to note his preferment as well as gratified for  the sake  of the  province  that  there is. an  opportunity to  secure suitable representation for  British Columbia in  the  Cabinet and they would  hesitate  before polling a vote that would  endanger that  end.

St. Patrick's Day comes  on Saturday this-year and the eve was  therefore considered a more suitable  night to blend the maple leaf with the  shamrock in a social dance.  F. H.

He was in Fairview most  .of the time but paid a visit to his parents in Vernon before returning.  F.

Work has  not been very plentiful this winter  and when tho ice. harvest winds up  this week, there will again be the usual sprinkling of unemployed.  - Govt. Agent Hunter of Princeton  was in town this week. Mr. Hunter  was so modest that he couldn't take  any credit that didn't belong to him.  A few weeks ago the Gazette gave him  credit for letting tax-payers here have  a brief respite, but he has confessed  that on that particular occasion he  had cleaned up everything in sight  before we saw him.

A little over a year ago the Gazette  congratulated its nearest journalistic  neighbor on the west on being successfully ' launched on the sea of matrimony. Now our next nearest neighbor, Bio. Fred Fine of the Oroville  Gazette has been andjgone and done it,  having been married last week in Spokane to Miss Salina Campbell. Our  heartiest congratulations are extended.  And now the Gazetie is matrimonially  happy on both sides.  The Gazette had a pleasant call yesterday from Bro. Wright of the Si-  milkanieeh Star who was paying the  town a short visit. Mr. Wright was  much impressed with evidences of progress made even during the interval  since his last visit, some five months  ago. Here we see buildings going up  one and two at a time with no rush,  and we do not notice it like those who  see the town only at , intervals of  several months and who are struck  with the changes   made.  A wholesale stationery concern in  Vancouver is soliciting retail job printing through towns in the interior of  the province and is thus trying to do  local publishers out of the trade which  naturally belongs to them. On the  circular letter sent out puffing the  praises of British Bond Linen, the  head margin is five points wide at one  corner and 17 at the other. Possibly  it was that sort of blacksmith work  in the city that has made it necessary  for them to seek fresh fields and pastures new. Keep your job printing at  home.  ..Hedley Meat. Market.'.

The transaction was one absolutely free from all  ',-crookedness"   and    he    defied   the  lpader of  the  opposition   to   suggest  anything   which   was   iiot   regular   in j  Connection with it.    The  Chief Com-j  ihissioner of Lauds  and   Works  also j  gave evidence in which he pointed out  some of the. advantages which would j  follow to the province by   the  trans- j  action.  ������������������������������������' The. investigation is to be continued  but there is little prospect of the opposition finding anything which would  Warrant the alarming reports raised  by them   with  respect  to  this   trans-  PROPERTY IN HEDLEY  And  WHAfllj-tmr >s the supply point for the.Nickel Plate inoiin-  ��������� ���������vlllCj tain, on' which is situated.the famous '��������� Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold'mine'hi Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.'

The proposal to alter the deposit of  candidates for the legislature from  $200 to $50 failed. The bill was' introduced by J. H. Hawthornthwaite and  was not a. straight party question.  Although in a House'of thirty-one  members the bill passed its second  reading by a majority of one, it was  defeated later after going into committee. The Minister of Finance, who  Was strongly opposed to the measure,  moved as a, test that the committee  rise. The motion carried and the bill  was killed. ���������   i  The opposition leader during the  discussion of the bill suggested that it  might be wise to do away with the  deposit altogether and provide that  only representatives of a majority vote  should be allowed to take their seats,  elections being held until a candidate  received a majority vote.  John Houston expressed astonishment at the proposal being made to  introduce, a German system of voting  in preference to an English system.  On a bill introduced by the Chief  Commissioner to prohibit absolutely  the export of timber from British  ' Columbia to the United States, the  leader of the opposition introduced an  aniendment to provide, for the export  . of inferior grades of timber.  The Government would not accept  this amendment. It was pointed out  that to open the door at all to the  export of any classes of timber would  result in trouble. The United States  mill men were not seeking the inferior  grades hut what they wanted was also  the first class timber. If any class  was allowed to go over,_ a way would |  be found to evade the law. The policy  of the Conservative party was pointed  out to be the conserving of the lumber  industry to British Columbia. The  United States, by a high tariff system,  Mr. Bowser pointed out when the bill  was under discussion, had closed the  British Columbia market to the republic and also to all its dependencies.  If the timber were allowed to be shipped into the United States it would  again come into competition with the  provincial mills in the markets of the  Northwest Territories.  The amendment was voted down.  Hon. Mr. Green informed tho House  however, that he intends later to introduce a bill to provide for tho scaling  <>f logs.  The Midway <& Vernon Amendment  Act is still before the Legislature  pending a solution of the question satisfactory to all sides. The bill, which  has passed the Railway Committee  jind also its second reading and been  committed in the House, provides for  the extension of the time for completion of the line to Dec. 31st, 1910, to  build branches to Penticton and to  Kamloops, It also contains the following section: ;  "The  Midway & Vernon Railway'  L. W. SHATFORD,  Secretary and flanager,  HEDLEY,  Company is hereby .declared to be, and  to have been since the 11th May, 1901,  a body corporate and politic under the  name of ���������'The- Midway and Vernon  Railway Company," with all the  rights, powers and privileges granted  and conferred by the Company's Act  of Incorporation, viz., the "Midway  & Vernon Railwav Aid Act, 1902,"  and the "'Midway & Vernon Railway  Act, 1901, Amendment Act, 190i."  The Premier proposes to add the  following section to the bill on report:  "Nothing in this Act contained  shall be held to extend, vary or in any  way affect the provisions of the said  "Midway & Vernon Railway Aid Act,  1.902," regarding the earning of aid by  the said Company under said Act or  this granting of aid to said Company  under said Act."  .1. H. Haw thorn thwaite proposes to  move a section as follows :  "Should the Midway & Vernon  Railway Company fail by this Act to  obtain confirmation of its rights as  " a body corporate and politic," then  the province shall take over any and  all lines of railway constructed by the  said Company and pay all just debts  incurred for actual construction of  same."  The bill is standing over in the  meantime in an effort'to solve all the  difficulties which present themselves  in the legislation before the House.  To  make good bread -ybii  must have good flour.
