C.  Several town readers have drawn  the Gazette's attention to the following paragraph from '.'the ''Star,' and request that the full figures published in  the Gazette of January 18th be reproduced.   The Star says:  "The money orders and posts) 1 notes  paid at the Princeton post office indicate the growing importance of this  section when compared with other  places. The total paid was $1877, or  nearly $400 more than the next highest  office in the Similkameen."  The Gazette deprecates any sectional  feeling between towns, but nevertheless must admit that it has a. duty to  perform in the interest of the town in  which ii gets its living, and therefor  has- no right to refuse the request.  The figures were compiled from the  Postmaster General's report for the  year ending June 30th, 1005, and does  not include non-accounting offices.  ���������-������<--  '35 2  as's  S  ������ ������������������S'.-S''8-:"8;'8'.;S..  t^    ������k"    io    is    p  make any. Apart also from these  figures to.substantiate the claim made,  there is the verbal statement made in  Hedley by A. E. Howse in a public  gathering in the presence of at least  fifty people, one of whom was the  editor of 'the Star. That statement  was to the effect that the aggregate  profits of the two stores of the A. E.  Howse Co. at Nicola and at Princeton  were placed at $100 for the year. The  speaker said he was not aware what  showing the other stores had made,  but hinted very strongly that it must  have been considerably less as' his  company seemed to be doing all there  was to do. ' That was said on Sept.  5th, 1905, and nothing has occurred  since then to materially alter conditions. Now what kind of bird is this  that thus treats its own nest in Sept.,  1005, and publishes the above dishonest  paragraph in January, 1900:*  PROVINCIAL  Opposition Gleans One Crumb:  of Comfort.

January  ISth giving these figures, the Gazette  made the following explanation of  how. the amount of money orders and  postal notes paid in any post office  might under certain circumstances be  misleading. In this connection the  Gazette said :  "Of course there may he special  features which may swell the business  of a post office beyond tho mai-k where  it can be taken as a fair index of the  business done in the town. Location  of a Government office in any particular place, for instance, will do this,  for where the people of any certain  district send their taxes and other  official correspondence to one place  the money order and postal note business as well as the gross revenue of tin?  post office in that particular place will  possibly be doubled over what it  would appear under normal conditions."  Hedley is included in the Princeton  assessment district and all Hedley's  taxes go- to Princeton.  Now if all the money orders and  postal notes paid to Hugh Hunter,  Government Agent, for taxes, wero  deducted from the Princeton figures,  and all those at Hedley paid to F. M.  Gillespie, Deputy Mining Recorder,  deducted from Hedley,s account, it  would in all probability be found that  the ratio would stand about 2 to 1 in  favor of Hedley, which is about the  average comparative standing under  all other headings.  Anyone who will honestly examine  and compare the foregoing figures  must come to the conclusion that  Hedley, the pay-roll town, does a  greater volume of business than any  place in southern British Columbia,  between Greenwood and the coast.  Since June 80th, 1905, it is quite possible that Midway, with railway construction in progress, is a. single  exception.  Comparisons may be odious but the  Gay.et.te is not to blame, If other  people would be fair and truthful the  Gazette would not be called upon  to  -Messrs. R. C. Morrison and L, E.  Turner came down from Princeton on  Thursday. They have shut down the  work on the Sunset group at. Copper  Mountain and were returning to the  Boundary. They were reticent as to  the cause of the shut-down but it is  presumed that with the assistance of  the drill they have obtained a, sufficient knowledge of the property to enable the Company to decide what they  intend to do with it. The drill which  was at work on the Sunset is' to be  taken to Otter Flat to do some prospecting work there. Messrs Morrison  and Turner left here for Greenwood  on Friday morning. The Star in referring to the matter savs:  "it is known that friction has existed for some time between the South  Yale Mining Co. which controls the  Sunset, and the B. C. Copper Co, the  precise nature of which is of private  concern only, and this made it necessary to stop operations until an ad-  justmeu t of difficulties is made. Supt.  Morrison who has charge of the B. C.  Co's interests here will leave for New  York iu a few days en route to Nova  Scotia, and will then see Managiug  director Underwood when it is hoped  arrangements will be made satisfactory to all for resumption of exploratory work and completion of the bond  terms."  The property is situated about ten  or twelve miles, from Princeton, and  the exploratory work which has been  going on for the past ten or twelve  months has given business men in  Princeton an illustration of the beneficent effects of having a working  property within trading distance.  Work on a-more or less extensive scale  has beenenrried on at Voigt's Camp  on Copper Mountain for several years  past. This camp is about ten miles  south of Princeton, but relations that  coidd hardly be called cordial have existed between Mi*. Voigt and Princeton, which unfortnnatelv interfered  with   business.  This explains why additional regret  is felt in Princeton because of the shut  down on the Sunset The result of  exploratory work thus far is generally  believed to have, been most satisfactory, which should help most materially in an adjustment of difficulties.  The British Columbia Copper Company arc good people to have around,  and other parts of the Similkanieen  would regret with Princeton, to see  them quit operations on Copper Mountain.  WORK BEING ADVANCED  Frequent Divisions Demonstrate Government's Strength���������-The Dowdney Re-  elief Bill Passes���������Private Bills Committee Kept Busy ��������� Similkameen's  Representative is Chairman.  Maple   Leaf   Dance.  The Maple Leaf Club held their  second dance in Frasev's hall on Monday evening last. There was a large  attendance present and the event was  one of the most successful held this  season. The. music was supplied by i  Mrs. "W. H. Smith, piano, and Mr. !  Hill, violin. The members of the Club  wore a pretty badge, of a Maple Leaf  hand-painted on white satin ribbon  and decked out in all its autumnal  splendor of brown and gold. Supper  was, served in the hall by the committee of management. The dance,  broke up at 1:80, everyone pleased  with the good time spent.  ( From pur Special Correspondent)  The Conservative party in the House  on Tuesday afternoon gave ^ evidence  that while they were united on questions of public policy thev were not  bound together to support any measures in a slavish'manner in the House.  In doing what he considered was, in  the best interests of the Province, independent of party exigencies, A.H.'B.  Macgowan found it necessary to vote  against the majority of his party in a  simple motion that a committee rise,  ,and in so doing technically defeated  the Government, much to the enjoyment of an opposition which has few  rays of consolation and hope to cheer  their faces - in the Legislature. The  reverse vote in no way revealed any  split in the Government following, and  has the simple effect of holding a  .-eotion of the,bill introduced by the  Government for the prohibition of the  export of timber to the United States,  over for further consideration. The  Conservative party was.'not fully represented at the time; One of its supporters, W. .Manson, being chairman  of,the committee, and another, J. F.,  Garden, being absent. John Houston,  the two Socialists and the Labor representative also voted with the opposition. The motion was moved by Dr..  King, who desired that some provision  should be made in the bill by which  limber; might be shipped into the  Canadian: North West .without being  manufactured. The Chief Commissioner promised to make provision for  this later in the Act.  . The vote being taken, the wish of  the Legislature was shown to be that  the section needed further consideration, and the motion carried.  When twitted with the technical  defeat, a little later by the leader of  the opposition, Premier McBride soon  set at rest any impression which might  ���������prevail that he was in the least agitated by the vote. He assured Mr.  Macdonald that his position in the  House was perfectly satisfactory.  The   Assessment   Act   amendment,  introduced by the Minister of Finance,  has   apparently   been   received   with'  general  favor by  both   sides   of   the  House.  The Socialist Leader alone introduced an amendment to this measure.  He proposed that farmers whose income from the farms was not more  than $1000 should be exempt from  taxation. He contended that in this  the, Legislature would be but consistent. The incomes of persons when  not more than $1,000 were exempt.  The amendment was opposed by the  Liberal members as well as the supporters of the Government and voted  down, the only supporters of Mr.  Hawthornthwaite*������ niendment being  the mover, Parker Williams, W,  Davidson, .John Houston and Harry  Wright.  By  amendment to   the   Assessment  Bill it is made clear that the reduction  of the rate on real property from one  per cent, to three-fifths of one per cent,  should apply to small owners of land  and  not  to   those  who  although not  holding the land in one block still had  large    possessions.      Under    the    old  wording of the Act if the several pieces  of .land were each less than   $2000 in j  value  the  taxation   would   be  at   the!  low rate.    The amendment   provides!  its follows : i  ruder income tax the act is proposed to be amended by making it  clear that the total income is to be  assessed at a fixed rate.  Another amendment applies to the  sale of unworked crown granted mineral and placer claims, if a bidder is  not obtained at the sale for the amount due in taxes then the claim inverts to the crown, not absolutely as  in the -.present act, but subject to re:  demptioii for twelve ' months by the  paying of the amount due. in the  mean Lime the cluiiu cannot he preempted nor located.  Tins following section has been inserted as a new section to take the  place of a repealed section last year :  ������������������" If tiie -Minister of,Finance should  deem it advisable to . expose for sale  during the year 1000 all;Jots, in town-  sites, villas oi- other small subdivisions  of property for the taxes delinquent  th������renn, and which he has hitherto  withheld from the annual tax sale, he  may, before the date fixed for advertising such public auction, agree to accept from the owners of such propel ty  a si'ini less than the total amount due.  in full settleinent thereof, upon satisfactory proof being made to him that  the, owner is unable to pay, the full  amount due, or that the amount due is  greater than' could be realized by the  xnvner by sale of the pioperty. If the  sum agreed to he accepted by the  Minister of Finance is not paid before  the date fixed for advertising said  public auction, the said property may  then be exposed for .sale at such public  auction, and in the event of the Minister of Finance agreeing to accept less  than the amount due, lie may instruct  the collector to receive the saine and  issue receipt therefor.'' ,  The,forfeiture to the crown^of lands  which at a tax sale is fixed at twelve  months instead of six months, as is  the rule under the existing act.  The bill for the relief and disincor-  poration of Dewdney municipality has  caused    considerable    discussion    in  ��������� the House.    The reason for the bill is  ithat in 1S9I the dykes in that district  were'carried away and the farms of  several of the settlers in the dyking  district were ruined. For the past six  years- the settlers have neglected to  elect a council and there is now due  $31,160.    The creditors have agreed to  ��������� settle the matter by accepting a lump  sum of- $25,000. The bill proposes to  have $10,000 of this assumed by the  province and the remainder to be met  diy the residents of  the municipality.  ; J; H. Hawthornthwaite, the Socialist member of the House has only one  objection to the bill and that is that it  does not go far enough in the way of  aiding these unfortunate people. He  wants the province to assume the  whole of the indebtedness of the dyking scheme.  The Premier and members of the  Government point out that there is  involved in the question a serious one  for the province. If this difficulty is  not overcome and the lands of the  district pass into the ha nils of the companies holding the debentures that it  will not only seriously affect the district directly concerned but a stigma  will be cast upon the whole province.  The effect .would thus be to hurt the  credit of B. C.  The opposition has raised a cry  against the bill. At the same time  the do not suggest any way out of it.  The leader of the opposition in fact  expressed great sympathy for the  residents of the district but feared that  a bad precedent was being introduced.  The opposition would not come out  and say that they would refuse to deal  with the question the way proposed,  but as an excuse they pressed for a  special committee lo go into the subject and report to the House. This  motion was moved by Stuart Henderson. The Premier refused to accept  this amendment nnd on a division  being called for. the amendment was  voted down.  John Oliver, representing the opposition, proposed an amendment which  plainly bore on its face the imprint of  being intended only for election purposes. He proposed that of the  $15,000 proposed to be borne by the  residents of Dewdney $18,000 should  be saddled upon the dyking area and  $2,000 only should he collected from  the whole of the municipality. The  rough attempts to pose as the friend  of the people of Dewdney failed and  the amendment introduced by Mr.  Oliver was voted down.  A. bill introduced by J. H. Haw-  thornthwaite to extend the franchise  to women in provincial elections met  defeat on its second reading by a vote  of 2\ to 12.  There are a vast number of private-  bills coming forward at this sitting of  ContiiUK'd on last Puge.

The Dominion  Government,' whether ��������� Conservative ..".or'..Liberal,  has  always  been remiss in this matter.    On  Lake Superior, for instance, the  Canadian shore is  but  ill-protected iu comparison with that  along the south shore where a  mariner could sail from the Soo  to Dulutli  without ever being  out of sight of a lighthouse,  but on the Canadian shore navigators have  had  to  go  it on  dead reckoning from  the time  they left the Soo lighthouse behind them   until the lights at  Thunder Cape ..came in  view.  On the Pacific both the American and Canadian Governments  appear to have been at fault,  but the  latter particularly  so,  Various suggestions have been  made to avoid the recurrence of  these 'fearful marine  disasters,  and one of  the  most feasible  seems to be that of compelling  the ma.intenance of wireless telegraph ie communications betAveen   light' stations    and  the  various passenger craft plying  up and down the coast, by which  means   navigators   may   know  absolutely  where   they  are  in  weathtu- that is too thick to see  the lights or get the sun.  There are a few of the  more  pa iTo! ':���������/ among the lesser lights  of the Urit press  in   this  province, that continue  to  cry  out  "Folly wants a railroad policy."  The -Midway Star croaked out  thusly in its last issue ; but then  its editor has but lately arrived  from tho land of the screaming  eagle and is not yet accustomed  to the sharp  curves  in  public  policy dot*u-inded of supporters  of Bis  Majesty's loyal Opposition across James  Bay.     Last  year that cry was orthodox for  all, but those of them who now  realize   where  it   has   landed  them, never say it any  more.  Last  year a  "railroad policy"  was known principally to mean  legislation that would provide  for immediate construction of a  Coast to Kootenay railway.   It  now transpires that the Government, by refraining from perpetrating the act of handing over  a land subsidy to the G. T. P. as  a bribe to get them to do what  they had already agreed to  do  for nothing, and to grant a subsidy to the C. P.E.. to build from  M dway to   Spence's   Bridge,  took  the  very  position  which  has resulted in  the  immediate  construction of the V.V. &E. by  the Great Northern.   This work  in progress,  what is there remaining to be done by the enactment of further railway legislation this session?   It is true  j The new Postmaster-General  (by Avay of showing his goodwill  towards Yale-Cariboo, has been  sharpening his knife to lop off  afew more mail services in order  to show a bigger surplus to brag  about. The latest pruning is  that of cutting off another mail  per week to 'Camp McKinney.  This leaves McKiney with only  one mail a week which a year  ago had three. MeKinney is  only 28 miles distant, by wagon  road, from Fairview where the  nearest Government office is situated. Formerly the mail went  direct from McKinney to Fair-  view and it was possible to get  an answer back next day. The  first change was to send the  mail six hundred and fifty  miles around by the Arrow;  Lakes, requiring two .weeks to  get an answer by the service of  three times a week. With the  service reduced to once a week,  it will now, in all probability,  take three weeks to get the reply. This is a sample of how to  improve the mail .service, and  yet the reform of the Post Office  Department by the present administration is a great card for  the Postmaster-General to brag  about to people in Toronto who  have their letters handed in at  their front doors twice a day.

Piper  has   completed   the new  bridge at the month of .Rock Creek  which has been in bad shape for some  time past.  . The ice harvest is now fairly under  way in Hedley. W. F. Revely has a  gang of men at work cutting , ice on  the river near Pinto's and all his available work horses are busy hauling it  into town.  The steam shovel is at work on the  V, V. & E. right of way below Keremeos, and the manner in which it  handles the dirt would make Irishmen  and dagoes turn green with envy.  The Hedley school vacated McLean's  house on Scott avenue on February  ��������� 1st, and took up their quarters in the  new building over adjoining the resei-r  vation. Hedley has the most itinerant school in the province. They  move on an average about four times  n year.  Miss Greenhill who had been nursing out at Prather's, White Lake, returned last week quite ill, and is now  clearly in for a seige of typhoid. The  Prather piemises are evidently in- a  very unsanitary condition, one of the  family having died of typhoid a few  weeks ago.

The steady increase  of school population in " the- past two  years will show the folly of putting up  a. one-room building, which would be  overcrowded almost as soon as ��������� completed.-������������������ ,   ,    '  A jolly little social event took place  in "Fraser's hall on Friday evening last  when a few of the Hedley bachelors  gave a. dance. There was a good attendance, and dancing, interspersed  with songs and Bridge was kept up  until a late hour. Some, new dances  were introduced which were well received and enjoyed by all. The bachelors purpose giving another in about a  month.  Diamond drilling will begin iu a few  days on the Humming-bird mineral  claim owned bv 3. .T. Marks. The drill  is all ready, and the boiler is now  either on the ground or within a clays'  drive. The drill-operators who completed their work last week on Copper  Mountain went up to the Humming  bird to get every thing in readiness and  as soon as the boiler is hitched up the  work of proving up a big mine will  commence.  J. F. Roycr has issued a. new time  card for his Overland Flyer, taking.effect February 1st. The night drives  are all out out. Passengers leave Hedley at 7 a. m. arriving at Oroville at  G p. in.; leaving Oroville next morning  at 8 a. in., they arrive in Midway at 7  p. m. where they catch the Gt. Northern train next morning. At present  connection is made with Welby's stage  at Keremeos, but later, when travel  becomes more congested it is expected  that tho Flyer will run through to  Hedley.  destruction of trees. Mr! Rodgers believed every tree, to be worth its room  for the shade and ornament it afforded,  but many that were formerly protected on that score have now been condemned by Mr. Lamb because they  were in the way and were more or  less of a menace in helping the spread  of fire. Henceforth workmen or visitors who are careful of their complexion will have to adopt a sombrero type  of millinery, and poets must seek elsewhere for "the checkered shade.'"  Thos, Graham, well-khown at the  Nickel Plate where he worked for  years, died at Kruger Mountain .on  Monday, of hemorrhageand was buried  yesterday at Fail-view. He was very  well liked at the Nickel. Plate mine  where he was a general favorite. This  is another of the old Cariboo's victims  who contracted miner's consumption  in the dry stopes of that famous old  McKinney mine which made a few  .men rich and laid many more in their  graves. The. mine has now been shut  down for over two years,- and the full  harvest of its victims has not yet been  gathered in. They were, all looking  for a dry place to work in, not thinking of the deadly dust that was being  imbedded in their lungs. Better the  temporary discomfort of a wet winze  than Uie seeming comfort of a dry  stbpe. ���������  The town liars got tired manufacturing canards about Jim .Hill's   Chinese  contract, and switched off last week  on to the Daly Reduction Co. whose  works they said were to be shut down  by an  injunction  obtained by M.  K.  Rodgers.    As the   representatives of  the Company in Hedley, and also Mr.  H. Rodgers, who is here,  state  plainly that they heard nothing of   it   beyond the general   street rumor, it is  evident that   home  talent   as   usual  spun the yarn.   Meanwhile the whole  forty stamps   continue    as    usual to  pound away without an   hour's intermission in   the   twenty-four.    Whatever friction may exist in the internal  working of   the   Company   either in  their offices in Broadway, New York,  .or at Butte, Montana, it is a very snre  thing that the people of Hedley will  see no difference so far as the   work  here is concerned, for it will not pay  either a majority  or a minority interest   to   have   the work here shut  down for a single hour.
