The official count before the returning officer, as provided in the Election  Act, was made on Friday last by  T. W. Coleman in the presence of representatives of each candidate, neither  candidate being there in person.  A notable feature of the recent  polling was the almost entire absence  of spoiled ballots, due in a great measure to' the simplicity and plainness  of the ballot itself.  In a constituency where the voter is  called on to choose but one representative out of two or more names on  the ballot, the chances for making a  mistake are very lew. The city voter  who had to choose five out of fourteen  had to be a little more careful.  So far as majorities go. it is seen  that Shatford's majority is increased  in the aggregate from 73 to 98, and in  percentage it goes up from 14.28% to  18.63%.

On reading a  paragraph or two the article seemed  to be more or less familiar, and on  closer examination turned out to be  an old acquaintance.  It is 0. more or less mutilated series  of extracts from an article written by  the editor of the Hedley Gazette for  the British Columbia Review, a special  number published last summer by the  Vancouver World, and had been crib  bed by the Spokesman-Review's Grand  Forks correspondent, without a shred  of credit being given either to the  writer or the publication in whose  columns it appeared. A portion of it  also appeared in last week's Princeton  Star, which gives no credit even to  the Spokesman-Review, from whose  columns it had most recently beent  taken. However, the Gazette has  pleasure in congratulating the Star  upon having in this case shown that  it is able to recognize real good stuff  when it sees it.  The   article   as  it  appears   in   the  Spokesman-Review, reads :  "The' general impression prevailing  that it takes vast sums of money to  develop the gold and copper properties of British Columbia before they  can be put oh a paying basis'lias been  entirely exploded, 'at least so far as  the mining district of Similkameen is  concerned. It is only necessary to  substantiate this statement to refer to  the fact that on the Sunnyside mineral  claim,".'which  lias  furnished  a   very  the ore on Copper mountain and the  apparent quantities as shown both on  the Sunset group and from the extensive surface prospecting carried on by  Mr. Voigt leave no doubt' as to the  bona fides of the camp as a field for  mining operations.  The ,Nickel Plate, together with  some 15 or 20 more claims owned by  the Yale Mining company, which is a  sister corporation of the Daly Reduction company of Hedley, is a mining  property on a scale which will make  the Similkameen district a Great mining camp forgenejations.  At this point the Similkameen river  cuis through an area of metamorphosed sedimentaries very much contorted, folded and altered. The whole  region from Twenty Mile creek eastward to Keremeos creek is a vast  mineral region in which is contained  not only the score* of claims on Nickel  Plate mountain, but those around  Twenty Mile lake, comprising the  Golden Zone group, Riordan mountain  properties and those on Strav Horse,  Independence, Pearson and Green  Mountains. 'On Independence mountain is situated the now well-known  Apex group.  This mining district of the middle  Similkameen may be said to include  the properties sometimes classed with  those lower down Keremeos creek.  And it is safe to say that a large per-'  centage of the mining properties of  meiit in the great mining camp of the  Similkameen are holdings which are  poor men's propositions, as they can  be opened up and put on a shipping  basis at a small cost, quite unlike the  average gold-copper properties in  other British Columbia camps.

Fourteen and a'luilf inches' of snow  fell last week. This added to the quantity that was already on the ground  gave a wintry appearance quite unusual in-this portion of the Similkameen. The .amount of snow in the  mountains make unusual freshets a  possibility for the coming spring, in  which' case the cribwork clone on tweh-  ty inile will be found to have been  most timely.  1.   Gladden   is in  Spokane  gone there on business.last week.  School was closed on Friday of last  week, owing to the illness of the  teacher, Miss Lumont.  Good progress is being made in the  enlargement of the flume tunnels, and  it is expected that by the time there is  water enough to fill up the flume the  tunnels will afford the. necessary space  above the lluine to pass along lumber  and othei* materials for repairs.  Word came, to town on Tuesday  night that John Snodgrass, of Okanagan Falls, son of W. J. Snodgrass,  had died at his home there, of pneumonia. He was in Hedley a few clays  ago, and Uie news came as a great  surprise to those here who knew him.  Burns Bowerman came up from  Krugcr Mountain last week to assist  in the contract of enlarging the flume  tunnels. They have a force of cracker-  jack miners now at work on the job,  and the firing at times has a close resemblance to thunder-claps in a summer storm.  Rosslaud's tenth mid-winter carnival  is now in full swing, commencing on  the 12th and lasting for five days.  Rossland has the largest covered rink  west of Winnipeg for curling and  hockey contests, but the most exciting  feature is the ski races and perilous  mid-air jumps. The Rossland Miner  ���������has ��������� the Gazette's thanks for pretty  souvenir post cards illustrative of the  carnival.  during the past two years, there is no  shaft or hole deeper than 30 or 40 feet,  the ore being quarried from a surface  glory hole.  0      "Mining in  the Similkameen dates  back to  the. placer days,  when  considerable   gold   was   taken   out with  ���������rockers   and   the   stream    platinum  which  .accompanied   the   gold    was  thrown  away as valueless.    Most, of  ! the   placer   diggings . were   found  at  '. Princeton   and    Granite   Creek,   but  while the. placer diggings themselves  were soon worked Out,   they pointed  the Avay to the  rich harvest of lode  mining  which   was   to   follow,    and  which is already being gathered in at  Hedley from the stopes and glory holes  of   the  Nickel  Plate and Sunnyside.  "The   points   on   the   Similkameen  where valuable deposits are known to  exist  are  at  Copper  and   Kennedy  mountains, One Mile creek and Five  Mile creek oh the upper Simillcameen,  at Hedley and in the mountain range  between Twenty Mile and Keremeos  creeks   in   the   middle  Similkameen,  and Keremeos and Susap creek in the  lower Similkameen.  Copper mountain  is   known   from   development   work  done on the Sunset group bv the B. C.  Copper   Company,    and    in    Voigt's  camp, clone by Emil F. Voigt for himself and associates inTacoma.   The  operations of the B. C. Copper Company were carried oh exclusively under  a   bond   which   they  had   from   the  owners for about a year, when a disagreement as to some. of the details  relating to what claims should pass to  the purchasers  caused a cessation of  the work.    Much of the work done by  the   B.  C.  Copper Company was by  diamond drill, and as the holders of  the bond in all probability retain the  cores, so that the results' do not appear, this circumstance doubtless had  ''much to do with preventing an understanding being arrived at between the  parties.    The excellent character  of  Rossland, Feb. 2.���������The difficulty experienced in securing fuel continues  to handicap both mines and smelters  to ;a;considerable degree. At the Le  Roi mine during the week the management seriously considered the  question of shutting down, but managed to pull through without, owing  to the timely arrival of a supply.  The smelters cannot be operated to  their full capacity, and as a result of  this the mines can ship only a. limited  quautity of ore to them. Thus the  lack of sufficient supply of fuel operates to the disadvantage of both mines  and smelters.  The question of a fuel supply is a  serious one, and should at once be  taken up by the authorities to the end  that it may be remedied. The mining  section of the province cannot afford  to have its production so seriously  curtailed from such a cause, if a possible remedv can lie found.  METEOROLOGICAL.

Now. that the .provincial elections  are over and things are settling back  to the normal, the people of British  Columbia, who are most interested in  the .progress-of the mining industry  should not forget that the Dominion  House has been nearly two months in  session and that miything which may  be clone by the federal authorities to  aid in the advancement of the mining  industry should soon be under way if  anything is to be secured during the  present session.  The department of the federal government from which any direct assistance to mining can come, apart from  that obtained from favorable readjustment of the  tariff,   is the geological  survey.    It is only a few months ago  that the press   of   British   Columbia  hailed with  satisfaction  the transfer  of the geological survey from the department 'of the  Interior to that of  Inland Revenue, thus placing it under  the control of a cabinet minister from  British Columbia.    Handicapped as it  has always been through shortness of  funds, the Canadian geologioal survey  has fallen very far short of rendering  to the mining industry of. Canada the  assistance   that   has   been   given   to  mining in the  United States by the  United States geological survey.   For  years, it is true, there was not much  encouragement for the federal government to set apart   any considerable  amount of cash for the. geological survey when that institution was under  the direction of pessimistic heads, with  the   single   exception    of   the   short  regime in which the late Dr. Geo. M.  Dawson was director.    In him Canada  and the survey had a director of rare  talents and boundless faith in the  illimitable   mineral   resources   of   the  country.     Like him also, the present  director   is   in  close sympathy   with  mining,   and ample funds should be  placed   at   his disposal to  make  the  geological survey the aid to mining  which it ought to be.  Instead of being  the fore-runner of the prospector and  furnishing   him   with   scientific data  which  would  render his  work  more  effective, and  profitable alike to himself and the  country, the prospector  in British Columbia, has  hud  to lead  the  way;   blaze  his own   trails   and  work out his own scientific facts, providing lie had the knowledge and experience to enable him to do so.  Upon  him also is left the task of persuading  the work of the geological survey, or  to cast any blame whatever upon anyone except where it properly belongs,  and that is with parliament which has  all.along,failed to provide the geological survey with the sinews of war  which would enable it to penetrate  the wilds in advance of the prospector  instead of following meekly in his  wake.  A few months ago we had occasion  to note in these columns how different  j matters are in the new mining field of  ! Cobalt, Out.-, where the region has all  been worked over previously by geologists, and geological or formation  ..maps prepared, on which both the  formation and the topography of the  district are marked, and one of these  is handed to the prospector as soon as  he buys his miner's licence. That  work which properly belongs to the  geological survey has been done by  the ricn province of Ontario at its own  expense. But British Columbia with  its vast extent of difficult mountainous  territory, the greater cost of opening  up the country for settlement, and of  administering justice when the country is settled, to say nothing of the  extent to which she is robbed every  year by the federal government without adequate redress, is unable to  undertake this task of making a  thorough geological and topographical survey of her rich mountain  regions.  At once the appropriation for the  geological survey should be at least  trebled, and the press of British Columbia is not doing its duty if it fails  to demand daily nnd weekly this increase for the geological survey, until  it is obtained during the present session. Duncan Ross, instead of meddling in our provincial elections,  should be at Ottawa pressing this  matter.  The machine has ��������������������������� squared ..'things  with R. G. Sidley; He lists, received  ah official communication that a spur  will be run from the main line of the  V. V. & E,. to his ranch.���������Ledge.

Had it  been allowed- to remain at the old  figure a tidy little sum would-have  been netted that would help out  wonderfully in fixing up the roads.  The Victoria Times and Princeton  Star have both admitted that Premier  McBride's majority in the house will  leave him independent of the Socialists/ but that sluttish exponent of  partizan bigotry, the Nelson News,  still clings to the epithet, McBride-  Socialist administration.  Price Ellison is now willing to yiefd  the cake to L. VV. Shatford as an  election prophet. Mr. Ellison, like  some other Tories on the outside, was  inclined to be incredulous of the forecast made by Mr. Shatford and his  friends in this riding, and thought,  that when Mr. Shatford placed his  majority at 99 five weeks before the  election, he was only chaffing. The  official count gave it 98 and there were  sick men enough in Hedley and Fair-  view to put it over the 100 mark. Ex-  constable Venner, of Fairview, ran an  ambulance corps over there, taking  Curtis voters to the poll on a stretcher,  but all Shatford's supporters went in  on their own legs.  Mr. Grigor's 'political'reputation was  lost in Similkameen. At all events,  he stated in his capacity as Liberal  organizer, that he '���������would stake his  political reputation that Curtis would  be elected in Similkameen, and that  in doing so he did not underestimate  the strength of Mr. Shatford."  W. C. McDougall was down from  Princeton on Saturday evening, and  was a well-pleased man. The result of  the election, both in Similkameen and  in the province, suited him down to  the ground, although he thought that  some of the polling-subdivisions if they  had done full credit to themselves  would have given Mr. Shatford bigger  majorities than they did. Mr. McDougall clid effective platform service  in the contest in behalf of good government.  HOTEL SIMILKAMEEN    HEDLEY, B. 6.

One of the funniest of the lot  was a column interview of Duncan  Ross in the Nelson News. While the  utterances of a representative should  always be of interest to his constituents and that in itself ought to be  ample justification for reproducing it,  yet in consideration for Duncan's feelings let us forbear, for it would be  almost cruel to show up now what he  said was happening and was going to  happen in Similkameen, Okanagan  and Kamloops. In the flush of victory  Duncan's opponents can afford to be  generous. And let us hope that this  may have a chastening effect upon  him ; but it won't.  Had Smith Curtis withdrawn at  the importation of Mclnnes he could  now say "I told you so," and would  have, made something of a hit instead  of being in the mulligatawney with all  the rest. But in view of the fact that  he silently bolted Mclnnes whole and  performed the squidgeecumsquee act  by swallowing himself at the same  time, he must now realize that he has-  been stultified in the eyes of the electors and missed the opportunity of his  life for effective posing.  The province of British Columbia is  no smaller to-day and its remote districts no less difficult to traverse in  winter than it was that glorious summer time when the election of Mr.  Ross was deferred until the people of  Yale-Cariboo could be cajoled into line,  and yet we see the McBride government calling elections in every riding  on the same day. The McBride government says let the people think and  then decide. The Ottawa machine  said let us decide; the electors in Yale  Cariboo have no right to think.--Ledge.  The Ledge might have added that  in the general election of 1896 when  Yale-Cariboo included the Kootenays  as well, and fewer railways and steamboat lines wove in existence to facilitate travel, the; Conservative government at Ottawa brought on the election on the same day as other constituencies. But if there were a Federal  election coming on now, Duncan Ross  would try the. same trick which worked, the fluke for him in 1901. He's  built that way.

"The Cruise of the Neptune" is the  title of a most interesting volume by  A. P. Low, director of the geological  survey, and issued from the government printing bureau at Ottawa.  The volume is handsomely bound in  cloth, printed on finely glazed paper  and profusely illustrated. The matter  consists of a wealth of scientific data,  shedding light upon conditions in the  polar regions, obtained by Dr. Low  and his staff in execution of the commission issued to him in 1903 to explore  the region of Hudson Bay and northward thereof in the steamship Neptune. The scientific data obtained in  this exploratory work extending over  the years 1903-L covers the fields of  geology, botany, ethnology and zoology, and the narrative is most interestingly written.  The steamer Aberdeen has not yet  managed to reach Penticton. The ice  was broken to within five miles of Penticton, but was found to be so thick  and strong that they concluded to desist for a while and allow it to thaw  out a little more before trying to break  any more of it. The mails and express  were unloaded, and teamed into Penticton from Monday's boat. If no further exceptionally severe weather is  experienced the boat should be able to  hold its own against" any further closing up of thelake, and the chances are  very much in favor of a betterment in  this connection, for the sun is getting  strong enough to make itself felt and  a little more mild weather will cause  the ice to deteriorate sufficiently to  enable them to break through tho remaining five miles intervening between the present landing place and  the dock at Penticton.

In the House of Commons the other night was passed a vote "of.

Speaking-in    support  of  the     vote,  Sir   Wilfrid .Laurier  said:   "The  committee, 1 am  sure,  has not  forgotten  that   last   year   we   sent   an     expedition to explore, patrol and assert the  authority   of  the   Government  of   Canada  in Hudson's Bay and the northern  waters.    The object of this expedition  was     fully explained     to     th-i  House  last year and met  with general favor.   The view was to assert beyond   any   possibility   of   doubt,     so  as to    prevent any     future    possibla  conflict,   the  undoubted  authority    of  -.���������tho. Dominion   of  Canada  in  the    waters'  of  Hudson's   Bay   and   . beyond.'  The steamer    Neptune was chartered  last   year   and   sailed   from   Halifax.  It   had   on ��������� board   a ������������������.representative of  the Geological   Department,   a   representative, of  the   Marine   and   Fishcr-  ��������� ies. ./.Department';     Inspector     Moodia  arid  five  men   of the  Mounted Police.  The   instructions  given   to   the    expedition,   which   was  for the     time   being   under   the   chief   control     of  Mr.  Low.   was  to  explori-  as  far    as     h������  could  during the .season  the northern  waters and to establish'a post some-,  where  in  Hudson's Bay.    No de/hiit'J  instructions   were  given  to.tho  expedition    as   to   the   location     of     tho  post.   Then,   as  soon  as the  breaking  of the ^ce  in  the  spring  would     permit,  the expedition  was to  go north  and explore  Baffin Bay and  Lancaster Strait,  and  then   come . back    to  Capo     Chin ley,   on   the     Straits     of  Hudson's  Bay.      There they  had    in-  -striictions that   they  would    be    met  by another steamer,  which     was . to.  sail,  and has  sailed,   on tho  loth  of  .July,  to meet them,  give them coal,  provisions, etc.  "The Neptune is to come and ba  relieved and be replaced by another  boat, the Arctic, which will bo under  the command of Capt. Cornier, and  which is to sail on August'15th.  This boat will carry an oflicer and  ten men of the Mounted Police, apart  from the crew of the. ship. They will  relieve the Neptune. Their instructions are to patrol the waters, to  find suitable locations for posts,;.to  establish those posts, and to assert  the jurisdiction of Canada. Tho Government has been induced to come-  to this action, because, it is evident  that the time 1ms arrived when our  interests in tin'fie northern waters i  should   not  longer  be neglected.

Dr. Coldwin  Smith takes a charmingly optimistic view,  in the last issue   of  Tho   Weekly   Sun,   of  tho   fact  ���������   that tho output of pianos in  Canada  had   greatly    increased.    "It   is   pleasant to bo told," he says,  "that the  sale  of pianos  has  largely   increased.  A     piano    no    doubt    is    sometimes  bought  as  an   ornamental   article    of  furniture;   but   allowing  for  this,   wo  may  fairly    infer   that   with  the    increase  of  the sale   there  has boon an  increase   of the  taste  for   music.  Not  only  is music a. source of the purest  pleasure,   and   in   that   character    an  antidote   to   pleasures  which  aro   less  pure,    but    it  is  a    most     beneficial  agent   in   tho   formation   of   national  character.      It.  refines,   softens,   civilizes.    It    carries    tho   aesthetic    element, without which character is not  complete,   into    homes    which   poetry  and   art  cannot  roach.      It exorcises  angry passions, as the  harp of David  exorcised  the    evil   spirit  from  Saul.  In a man who was fond of music you  would  hardly find    a  very  venomous  politician   or partisan   of  any     kind.  The taste  is social also,  and likely,  wherever  it   spreads,   to   promote     a  sociability,   which   is  said   in     some  of  our    rural    neighborhoods  to    bo  wanting,    and    tho     lack   of     which,  whore it is ���������.'felt,, must bo a drawback  from the .happiness, of farm life.

So  it is with the builder of character.*.  Ho must decide finally what he will do  and then make.for his goal, refusing  to look, back or be moved from his  course.  Tens of thousands of young people  with good health, good education and  good ability are standing on the end of  ii bridge at life's crossing. They hope  they are on the right way. they think  they are doing the right thing, and yet  they do not dare to burn the bridge  they have .inst crossed. They want a  chance, for retreat in case they have  made a mistake. They cannot bear  the thought of cutting off all possibility of turning back. They lack the  power to decide conclusively what  course they will take.���������O. S. Marden in  Success.. [   '.Very:Ancient."Jokes.. .

At one time ,the naves of English  churches were the resorts of idle loungers, tho gentry affecting niuch to walk,  lo see and to be seen in the various edifices. But the scenes which .tqo.k place in  ���������Taul's walk," in St. Paul's cathedral,  London, became a scandal. -The cathedral was termed "at once a . thoroughfare,, .a market and a. fashionable promenade." From an act passed in the  reign of Queen Mary dealing with this  abuse; it would seem ...that beer, .bread,  fish and flesh' were vended there,  horses, mules and cattle driven through  the building., and, according to an old  writer, the -midst-of the.cathedral was  the scene of "all kinds of bargains,  meetings, .brawlings, ��������� murders, con^  spiracles and the font for ordinary payments , of'money."
