The  bills to amend the Magistrates act,  providing for the revision of the  statutes ahd to amend the Horticultural Board act, were considered in  committee.  . Hon.

ROSE  Proprietor  i  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  In the. early stages of * ��������� the race,  Schrubb used his speed to pile rip a few  laps of a lead and if possible rattle the  Indian, but the game would'nt work.  The Associated Press report says:  "Selirubb's plan, it appeared, was to  run a, fast mile -or two during which  he made .decided gains and then he  would steady down to a trot apparently  Lo reserve his wind and strength.1 His  sprints always created an uproar* and  the spectators cheered him frantically.  The Englishman gained another* two  and a half'laps' during the next five  miles, and was five laps, or half a mile  ahead when the ten miles were .finished. The time for the ten miles was  57:32 1���������5; Longboat's time in his race  with Dorando was 5S:57 1���������5, nearly a  minute and a half behind Shrubb's  time tonight.  "Schrubb increased his lead to the  six laps at the twelfth mile but the Indian was not to be worried out of his  long swinging stride until near the  fifteenth mile'when he shook himself  ui> and picked up about fifty yards.  Schrubb, however, continued to open  -up the distance between himself and  the pursuing Indian'and the fifteen  mile mark found the Englishman six  arid a half laps ahead. Schrubb's time  for the fifteen miles was 1 hour and 28  minutes -1-5 seconds.  "Only once or twice, and that after  the first fifteen miles had been passed,  did Longboat increase his pace as if to  test the endurance of his English rival. Then finding that Schrubb was  still strong, he fell back to the old  stride again. Nearing the twenty-  fifth mile Scrubb showed signs of distress and frequently had to walk, during which period Longboat gained  several laps. ' Longboat now cut a  fast pace and the Englishman unable  to follow lost bis lead. In the fifth lap  of the twenty-fifth mile Schrubb collapsed and gave up the contest."  Seattle. Washington, Feb. 9.���������Mr.  William Hutchinson, commissioner of  Expositions for the Dominion of Canada will, in a few days arrive from  Ottawa to complete tho pleasant task  of erasing the boundary line and making Canada, with her fruitful provinces full partner with the shite of Washington arid Alaska, in the Alaska-Yukon  Pacific Exposition.  Commissioner Hutchinson has only  recently returned from London where  he had full charge of- Canada's splendid exhibit, tit the Franco-British Exposition, j He comes to Seattle for* the  purpose of \ selecting the site for the  handsome building Canada will erect  and to arrange for the installation of  the exhibit |'which' he brings home  from Londdn'with so much credit.  His arrival will be a signal for an  elaborate reception, \ from , which  he will liave no escape?.' despite that  he has recently been suffering  severely from illness.  For the purpose of the exhibition  the Dominion appropriated the sum  of $100,000, which means that Canada  is to provide ones of the leading features of the big show. Several of the  provinces have also come in with independent offerings, just as have several states of the Union. Among the������e  are Alberta and Saskatchewan and, it  is believed confidently, British Columbia will'shortly take advantage of  the opportunity to " display the resources that have made her famous  from world's end to world's end. It  is to be an exposition of the whole  Northwest, not of any fractional part  of it and down at this end of the line  "B. C." looks just like "Wash."  Special   Canadian celebrations   are  being arranged, but as yet none except  tentative dates have been given.   The  exposition directors are **m*eommuni-  cation   with the officials   at Ottawa  and   definite   announcement   of  the  special days will shortly be made.    As  they stand now British Columbia week  has been fixed from June 14th to June  19th,   inclusive.      These dates   'have  been selected for the reason  that the  period   adjoins   the    Inland Empire  week and the resources,  productions,  future and all else of the two are so  closely related-that it was deemed good  ,s,ense   to.'-make.'it practically a continuous celebration by the one general  district.  Dominion of Canada day has been  set for June 10th, on which date the  opening of the Canadian building will  be celebrated and there will be one  more big Dominion Day on July 1st;  Canada's real day.'to celebrate. A big  lacrosse tournament is also being arranged, but the details are not sufficiently worked out to warrant anything    like,   definite    {innouncetiieiiti.  IT WAS CALLED THE BEST EVER  Ball   Was a   Pronounced  Success  Masquerade  Over two hundred attended the  masquerade ball held oyer, Shatford's  store on Friday last, 5th inst.  For three weeks before the event  vat inns committees had been at work,  and the organization was perhaps the  best that has been got together for*  ���������any like affair in Hedley. These committees had to do with the decoration  of the ball-room and with preparation  of the supper, and the supplying of  music.  The outside guests were fioin. Penticton, Keremeos the lower Similkameen "and Princeton, but Keremeos  supplied the.1-greater number of outsiders there being something over  thirty from Keremeos alone.  The maskers numbered fully a hundred, but as some neglected to leave  cards giving their names and the  characters which they represented,  we are unable to give a full list.  Many of the characters represented  were excellently costumed and it is  generally admitted that very seldom  has so large and varied an array of  costumes been gathered together.  Among the non-maskers many of  the ladies were handsomely gowned in  ball room attire.  The hall was neatly decorated, the  floor in very fair condition, and the  music up to.the excellent standard  furnished in the past by the Simmons-  Hill dance orchestra.  Particular pains were taken to supply a fine supper and it is generally-  conceded that the ladies who had this  in hand outdid themselves in the excellent spread which they provided  and which was served to the guests in  Fraternity hall.  The dance, began about 9 p. m. the  floor being reserved for maskers only,  and prizes were warded for the following : ��������� -         '"-  Best Lady's Costume.  Best Gent's Costume.  Best Sustained Character, lady.  BestSustainedCharacteiygentleman  The judges were Miss Armstrong,  Kciemeos; and Messis. Kit .Summers,  of Prineeton,and Jas. Clarke, Hedley.  They took until about   11:30 to make  their   decision    when   the    following  awards were given:  Best Lady's Costume, Miss Phelps,  Keremeos, as Snow Queen.  Best Gent's Costume, Mr. FrankLog-  son, as Apache Indian.  Best Sustained Character, Lady,  Miss Kirby as Queen Elizabeth.  BesbSnstained Character,Gentleman  Robert Clare, as "23 Skidoo." (clown).  List of Characters  SACRAMENTO BONDED  Manitoba Investors Have Taken   Working Bond from Owner.  The Gazette was informed by Geo.  S. Lawrence, ofMoosejaw, whom we  met in Penticton that he and his associates had taken a bond from W.  A. Haiuing on the Sacramento min-  eral^claim in Camp Hedley.  The Sacramento is very likely looking giound lying right below the  Metropolitan. No development work  to speak of has been done on the property, further'than the various assess-  ments to retain title, but nevertheless'  home of the openings made have shown  the existence of ore containing good  values.  Work is to begin shortly under the  supervision of J. P. Gordon, C. E.  Four months ago there was less known  of the Metropolitan than is now  known of the Sacramento, and there  is every encouragement, that success  will also attend judicious development  of the Sacramento.  WIRELESS COMPULSORY  Every  American  Must  Ocean Going * Vessel  Have  It.  There is a very strong interestiu the  great game on this side of the line and  it is more than probable that a ...team  will be made up of many . foviuer well  known Canadian players who are here  and aching to get out their sticks.  The exposition is now about ninety  per cent complete, speaking of its  principal buildings, and assurance is  doubly'sure that it will be complete in  all details and open on June 1st, as  was first announced.  FLORENCE   GROUP   TO    WORK.  Mr.  Bradshaw Receives Notice from  Partner That Working Bond  is   Taken.  His  A letter lias been received by Mr.  Bradshaw from his partner Geo. M.  Gilbert, which informed him of the  fact that a-working bond bad been  given on the group to an English concern on terms satisfactory to Mr.  Bradshaw.  The amount which the bond calls for  and the terms of payment are of private concern and will not be given out  at.present.  The important feature, however, so  far as the Camp is concerned is that  development work both by diamond  drill and the prosecution of mining  operations is to begin shortly after  spring opens.

Feb. 4.���������Appreciating the value of the suggestions that  have arisen since the introduction of  his bill to require all ocean  passenger'  vessels to be equipped with  wireless  telegraphy,  representative Burke  of  Pennsylvania to-day reintroduced his  bill with several amendments. This action followed a long conference .with  commissioner Chamberlain of the   bureau of navigation, and general Uhler,  supervising inspector general  of the  steamboat navigation service,  in the  department of, commerce and labor.  Both officials approve of the. neAV bill.  The conference was held at the suggestion    of the house  committee on  merchant marine and fisheries which  lias been considering the subject. This ���������  committee will meet tomorrow to take  action on the new  bill.* As amended  the   bill  applies  to ocean   passenger  steamers certified to carry fifty passengers or  more between  ports two  hundred miles distant, instead of five  ���������hundred miles as in the first bill.   The  new bill thus makes the requirements  applicable to coast wise vessels, except  on the Great   Lakes.   The penalty is  changed so as to provide for a maximum fine of $1,000 or one  year's imprisonment. ,-���������'.- k:  Mrs. Critehley, Queen of Hearts.  Miss,Lowndes, Little   Miss Muffett.

C legislature is the absence of much  of the political rancor tliat has  characterised former deliberations of that body. A little  courteous action on the part of  leading parliamentarians on  either side will do much to foster the improved condition of  affairs.in this respect. A very  marked instance of this is to be  credited to C. W. Munro. the  Liberal representative for  Chilli whack who is one of the  most pleasing speakers in the  house and highly esteemed because of his fairness in debate.  Munro's graceful tribute to the  leader of the government whom  he complimented on having  risen in the esteem and confidence of the electors of this province, was an utterance which  did him credit.  The dispute between   the  C.  P. R. and the British Columhia  government regarding the  taxing  ot'  railway lands  in   East  Kootenay will  be watched  by  the public with special interest.  The amount involved  reaches  annually about $150,000,   which  the  government contend  they  have a right to  make the  railway   company   pay  in   taxes.  The (J. P. B. hold that the levy  of this tax is a violation of the  terms of the contract by  which  the   company   obtained    these  lands twenty   years   ago.    The  matter will  be   carried  to  the  courts and the government are  confident of a decision in their  favor.    This  amount   obtained  annually will go a considerable  distance  towards  the  building  of new roads and trails throughout the province.  The following from the Mail and  Empire leaves no doubt of the. fact  that the member for Yale-Cariboo is  making them sitiup.' The Mail and  empire says:  "Judging from the'members returned at the last election,   there- iniist be  plenty of good Parliamentary material  in   British Columbia. The speeches delivered   by   Messrs   Cowan,  Barnard,  and Burrell were of a high order,   and  there is no comparison,   intellectually,  br-tweeii ' the     present   Conservative  'members   from   British Columbia and  thi! Liberals  whom   they    succeeded.  Mr. Burrell.   who,   by the   way, lived  for some years  in   the  Niagara   district, and then introduced fruit farming on   an .extensive scale in  British  Columbia, made a speech.-last Friday  night which attracted   unusual attention from  members on   both sides of-  the House.   He seemed   instinctively  Lo   have   caught the   Parliamentary,  lone- which   many  members���������as,  for-  example.    Hon.  A.  B.   Aylesworth���������  never succeed in   doing.   The British  Columbians were unexpectedly- forced  into the debate, upon'practically   their*  first day of service,   by  the   remarkable speech of Sir Wilfrid   Laurier. It  was   evident .that   the   Premier  was  smarting from the humiliating   defeat  which he had sustained in   their province, and he  went   ont   of   his   way  to reflect upon the member for Vancouver     (Mr.   Cowan).    Except    for  this   the   debate     upon   the.   address  might have   closed   with Mr.  Foster's  speech.  As it  was,    Mr.  Cowan,    although   somewhat   unprepared,    felt  called upon to defend himself and the  people of British Columbia..  This led  to his being followed   by  two of his  colleagues and  now  that Mr.  Ralph  Smith, the only   Liberal  member left  from the  province,   has been put up  to reply,   it is   probable   that  others  will   be   heard   from.    Mr.   Goodeve,  who carried Kootenay at the deferred  election,  is an   orator of distinction,  and the galleries will be crowded on  Monday to hear him.  The New Year number of the 'Canadian Pictorial' is a mid-winter souvenir.  It depicts many of the phases of that  out-door life on the opening months of  the year that are so typically, as well  as exclusively Canadian. Out-door  sports and out-door labor areillustiat-  ed and give a crisp snappy atmosphere  to the whole issue. The man of the  month is the newly-installed Lieu-  tenant-goveinor of Ontaiio, the Hon.  J. M. Gibson. The -new fiction department has a remarkable feature .in  a story which secured the first, prize  of $1,500 in a New York competition  this month. It will well repay read-'  ing, and" it is published by special  arrangement. The doings of the  world are represented by striking  .scenes in distant parts of the British  Empire, as well as under the flags of  Other nations. In the department.devoted to feminine interests will be  found an article on New Year gifts of  ���������'ye"olden Lyme' that will surprise almost everybody. The musical offering  of the month is one of those English  rollicking songs that everybody can  learn.  Ten cents a copy.

A pessimistic note.-was struck at the  meeting yesterday of the Associated  Chambers of Commerce in regard to,  penny-a-word cables.  Sir FortescueFlannery, former president of the Insti tute of Mining Engineers, said the time had not arrived  when a sufficient, increase' in traffic  could be obtained by making the reduction.

John Gladden was up at the Kingston-last week making an underground  survey with a view to running in a  tunnel to tap the ore body already located in the shaft, of the Metropolitan.  Harry Swan left for Midway on  Tuesday morning to commence work  on the new bridge which is to take the  place of the old Ingram bridge over  the Kettle River* about four miles from  Midway.  Will Richter was up on Monday and  took away the cattle which have figured so conspicuously around the  streets this winter. It appears that  they were not aware of the cattle being here.  Miss Davies has been engaged to  teach the. school at Naramatta. . In  securing her services the people of  Naramatta have obtained a competent  teacher, and her many Hedley friends  wish her success.  The government 'phone is working  much better these days than usual.  A conversation with Sumnierland the  other day was heard more distinctly  than from most of the local phones  around town on the Hedley exchange.  Kelowna and Okanagan Landing  ���������are to have additional wharfage facilities. That seems to be only a portion  of the two millions voted by the C.P.R.  for improvement of the lines in this  division. Mum seems to be the word  so far as new building is concerned.  The Gazette has received a copy of  the Cobalt Daily Nugget, sent by J.  Gillan. This is the first daily to be  published in Cobalt and it is a very  likely looking paper which gops to  show that the effete easterner can get  a hustle on when the occasion demands it.  Coyotes are becoming rather too  friendly in the vicinity of Hedley. On  Wednesday morning last the town-  people were awakened from their  slumbers at an unseemly hour by the  howling of one or two on the mountain j ust back of the town and they  kept it up until nearly noon.  Keremeos Centre is to have a large  public hall. Mr. Frank Richter is going to build it. The material is now  ���������on-the ground.and the intention is to  have it ready for a grand opening ball  on St. Patricks night. Various Hed-  leyites now have the date chalked  ���������down on their hat bands.     ���������������  V. J. Rose, of the Hotel Hedley, left  for Victoria on Monday morning, to  ���������interviewF. S.Hussey, superintendent  -of Provincial police with reference to  renewal of his licence which had been  held back owing to repeated complaints  and charges against his management,  ���������made by the owner of the house.  Jim McNulty returned from Field  last week. He was well satisfied with  the work up there but the grub and  accommodation was unpardonable.  "When they reduced the wages 25 cents  a day, nearly all the men quit work.

A. Megraw returned on Saturday  from Summerlaiid where he had made  an official visit as District Deputy  Grand Master of No. 9. Masonic district. There he,found a. healthy iMa-  sonic sentiment prevailing and had  the pleasure of reporting favorably to  the M.W. Grand Master and recommending that a dispensation be granted to institute a new lodge in that  place. An official visit was* also paid  to the new lodge ,in"'Penticton, now  working'under dispensation and niak-  ing satisfactory progress.       ���������'    *  Since railway construction began  here and foreigneis are receiving and  despatching mail the ingenuity of post  masters and mail clerks has been put  to the test.   One letter which reached  here was addressed nort  Anierika, Canada, ��������� Britice Colomba,-  H Edlei. The mail clerks and postmasters, who succeeded in steering it  in here, deserve about two grades promotion'* all around. ' One outgoing  letter had for its'-destination, seidnei  c. b. and this the postmaster had a.  hunch was meant for Sydney, Cape  Breton.  - ���������; <*-.  me  TRACK MATERIAL ARRIVING  Evidence That  Track-Laying Will  Be Delayed Much Further.  Not  Already the track material for the  road between Keremeos and Hedley is  arriving and much more is on the  way. The first to arrive is a car-load  of angle bars from the Hamilton Steel  and Iron Co.,# of Hamilton Ontario.,  although the contract for this only required shipments tobeginonFeb. 10th.  Other material ordered is 3750 tons  of Algoma Steel 70 lb rails now being  rolled at the Soo mills, shipnrent of  which is to begin at once.  The angle bars and spikes are to be  supplied by the Hamilton Steel and  Iron Co., and the track bolts are being  procured from the Montreal Rolling  Mill Co. These were ready for shipment and are doubtless now on the  way.  In all probability the endof February  will see a sufficient quantity of each on  hand to warrant the commencement  of track-laying at any time in March  that the contractors feel disposed to  start in. As every bit of grading between Keremeos and the station yard  at Hedley is completed and grading  between here and Princeton is so well  advanced, there is scarcely a mite of  possibility of the track-laying being  able to overtake the grading.  Should the track-layers fail to get  over the second crossing of the Similkameen river before high water  they will not likely get past Hedley  before themiddle or end of August,  for the crossing of Twenty-mile and  the third crossing of the Similkameen  within a couple of miles of Hedley will  hold them for a considerable fcirne and  allow all grading contractors between  ^erejand Bromley's to complete their  contracts somo weeks before the track-  laying gang can get near them.  If the tracklayers are to get over  the second crossing before high water,  they will do well to have their work  going full swing by St.  Patricks day.  m*  me  me  me  me  me  ^^���������������^���������^^���������������������@������@  me  me'  me  ���������mi:  w.  me  me  me  me  me  me  mi  mime  m)  me  me  me  me.  me  n  SftMPFORD'S Ltd.

The Great Northern, which already  taps the Crows Nest districts, seeks to  build into a region at present without  transportation facilities. The other  prospective invaders of Canadian territory are E. H. Harriman and D. C.  Corbin of Spokane.  The forces of the three rival interests  have already begun to assemble in  Vancouver and Victoria to organize  for the legislative campaign and will  soon begin in earnest. Lobbies representing the Harriman interests have  been stopping at the hotel Vancouver  for several days. The nominal applicants for the privilege of building lines  through the Flathead river valley are  British subjects, but in reality they  are 'merely acting as agents for the  American transcontinental roads.  ELECTRO-SMELTING  IS COMPLETE SUCCESS.  Dr. Haanel Secures  Useful  Information  on Trip to Europe.  Ottawa, Feb. 2.���������Dr. Haanel, director of mines, has just returned from  Sweden, where he investigated the  new electro smelting plant established  at Dumnafi'oet. He reports the new  system of treating iron* ores is completely successful and could be adopted to the exploitation of the immense  ore deposits of Ontario and Quebec  where the water powers are available,  thus insuring a great industrial developmental the iron and steel industry,  hitherto hampered by inconvenient  supplies of fuel.  Dr. Haanel also investigated the latest European processes of the production of zinc and the possibilities of  producer gas engines as coming largely into use in Germany. He says with  the latter the peat fuel scattered over  Canada can be made of great commercial value in the production of power  for manufacturing purposes. His detailed report will be issued shortly by  the department of mines.   **.
