'  M. J. HENRY,  3010 Westminster Road,'    Vancouver.  A   CORRECTION.  The item in last issue announcing a  niasquedade ball on February 14th for  the opening of the new hall in Keremeos appears to have -"been- incorrect;,  although the information reached the  Gazette from a source* that appeared  to be reliable, being from a resident  and one who attends dances and is interested in such events: The resident  manager of the Keremeos Land Co:,  Mr. J. J. Armstrong, says that they  have not yet made arrangements for  the 14th or any other date, but that  when it is opened they reserve the privilege of opening it themselves, when  invitations will be sent out. .'and after  that the public may have all the masquerade balls they may want.  The speaker's ruling on Ilawthorn-  thwaite's resolution of censure upon  the Liewtenant-governor saved the  House ift'bm what would have been a  heavy display of pyrotechnics. Mr.  Hawthornthwaite was not satisfied  -with the ruling and asked for extension  of time provided for in the rules of the  .House to appeal from the same.  - Hon. Dr. Young presented to the  house copies of ^communications between his honor the lieutenant-governor,* and the secretary of state, dealing  with bill No-30 of.tbe-last legislature,  to which assent was-refused.  The communications were as follows:  "Ottawa, Apiil 25, 1907.  "To the Lieutenant-Governor of B. C  Your premier, Mr. McBride, assured  me that the bill to regulate immigration into B. C. would not receive your  assent, but would be reserved for the  consideration of the government here.  Can-I rely,qn .this .assurance ?  "(Sgd:) B.'W.

Five times in succession  such enactment on the part of the legislature in B. 0. had been vetoed by  the federal government. His arraignment of the Dominion government in  the matter wns most severe, going  back to the commission appointed in  1900 and the manner in which its findings and recommendations had been  ignored. The application of-the Anglo-  Japanese treaty to Canada was also a  matter which came in for severe denunciation. In the course of his speech  also he took occasion to pay his respects to Duncan^Ross, in a few warm  sentences, in which he did not improve  that gentleman's reputation for veracity. It was his intention to compel  Ross to retract the statements ..made  by him in the house at Ottawa, and to  that end he challenged Ross to meet  him either in Vancouver or in Greenwood. '���������������������������������������������'      ...  ��������� The Lemieux mission and the assurances which the niinister.of labor had  received, from*the government of Japan  were dealt with and the evasive  ese foreign office to Mr. Lemieux, was  pointed out. The treaty.with Japan  was discussed at some length and the  manner in which the government at  Ottawa had been outwitted by the  eastern politicians was alluded to.  The question of the right of the province to effect such legislation as the  bill proposes was dealt with and the  reasons which dictated the policy of  the Dominion government were the  subject of severe strictures.  John Oliver replied on behalf of the  opposition, and his brief was largely  that of defence of the Ottawa government, i In view of the line which he  took, and the manner in which- he  showed that his sympathies in the  matter were with those who* vetoed  the bill rather than those who fiamed  and parsed it, the attorney-general put  the question to him very bluntly by  asking whether the opposition intended to support or oppose the bill, but  Mr. Oliver would not say which.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite also took a  hand in the debate, in a vitriolic  speech in which his attention was  pretty evenly divided between the  federal government, the provincial opposition and Duncan Ross.  The Provincial Sccietary introduced  his bill * to provide for a provincial^  university. The-bill gave evidence of  careful prep-iration, and many defects  in older institutions have been guarded . against. The Socialists will oppose it.  The Civil Service bill is also another  important measure that has been  brought down by the provincial secretary. It provides for a grading of  employees,*a fixed scale of salaries and  rate of increase of same, and superannuation upon attaining a certain age  or after so many years' service. Towards the latter the province will  grant $200,000, and employees^will be  required to pay in annuallv 3% of their  U'..i.r.:.:���������'.,   .-.������   arotn   ���������..   ,.���������,...     ...wl   010/   xe  CMP MEDLEY'S  ORE DEPOSITS  From Preliminary Report by  Chas.

R. -But-meagre information concerning the terrible occurrence, reached Vancouver, but from  .what little is known it is presumed  that Mr. Marpole was suffocated when  his house caught fire and that lie had  no chance to escape.  An employee of the ranch who was  sleeping in the house is reported to  have awakened just in time to escape  in his night-clothe!. He had no opportunity'to .'attempt a rescue of MivMar-  polelas the flames enwrapped that portion of the house, in which the latter  was sleeping. lb is reported that the  entire structure was consumed, and  that the charred remains of the unfortunate -young-man were subsequently recovered. Mrs; Marpole and young  child were visiting friends at Kamloops, and was appraised of the untimely end of her husband.  character of the note from the Japan-  The Sally mine at Beaverdell is shipping more ore, and ten men are working. They have lately struck some  $600 ore.  The important mining camp of Hedley is situated on the north side of the  Similkameen   river,  at the  mouth of  Twenty-mile   creek,' in   the   Osoyoos  mining division of British  Columbia.  It comprises about 100 suiveyid and  Ciown  granted  mineral  claims,   and  many  others  on which th*1 a:im.;il assessment work is still being done,  all  covering a-sheet of about twelve .square  .miles.    It was discovered in the year  1898, when nine claims were staked on  the ground  overlooking Twenty-mile  creek.     Each  succeeding   year  found  more and more prospectc-is impressed  with the possibilities of the camp, and  more clainis   wero taken up,   until in  1900 virtually all the 'giound now included  in   Camp Hedley was staked  out.   The largest piopetty owneis in  the camp, the Yale  Mining Company,  were early on  the ground arid commenced the work of prospecting their  most important claims e.-cily in 1899.  The   preliminary   woik   undoubtedly  proved satisfactory for they shortly  after showed   their faith in their prospects by beginning the  building of a  tram line,  flume and stamp and cyan- '  ide mill, a workentailiug the outlay of  hundreds   of    thousands   of   dollars.  Though  it is a little  more than three  years from the time the first ton  was  milled, and the ore is extiacted from  only two claims,  the camp  has since  justified  their faith in it by becoming  largest producer of gold alone of any  camp-in British Columbia.    It is very  probable as development goes on  and  transportation   difficulties   are   overcome new ore bodies will be discovered  and other known ore bodies of lower  grade will be woiked, for the history  of mining is only now beginning in this  portion of.the Similkameen district.  As the only previous work"done in  this neighborhood was the reconnaissance of Dr. Dawson in 1S77, when  there was.not; the slightest suspicion of  such .valuable ore occurring, it will be  Yreadi'ly seen how urgent was the need  of'the work of a Geological Survey  party.   '���������������������������,��������� .;.��������� .   _ "   ���������       --."  '���������:��������� The field work of the season was in  part deyoted to the acquiring of data  for a topographic map of the camp,  which will cover, when completed,  three miles from east to west and four  .miles from north to south. The scale  On which this is being prepared is 1,000  feet to the inch, with a contour interval of 100 feet.' Geological studies were  carried on at the same time in conjunction with the topographic work,  and special attention was paid to the  occurrence of.. the ore deposits, their  origin and history; but the attempt to  do both simultaneously and with the  same party was responsible for neither  being finished at the close of the sear  son;; Much credit is due for their zeal  and co-operation to my two assistants.  Messrs. J. A. Allan and A. O. Hayes,  who, besides assist ing in the geological  work are to be credited with a grejit  deal of the topography.  The method employed in mapping  the-district was that suggested by Mr.  W..H. Boyd as likely to. give the greatest accuracy for the time and means at  hand. Triangulation on signals from  im'.accurately measured base gave a  number of��������� fixed points on the sheet.  Traverses ..were run with transit and  stadia of all the wagon roads in the  district, as well as most of the trails,  the tram lines and flume; and the. detail was filled in with the plane table  aridstadia-readings.

"Can any good thing  come out of Nazareth*' they may  ask. and the  corruption  rampant in modern day politics, modern day   ii nance,   modern   day  corporation'tyranny and .modern day  mob   tyranny,  is  perhaps  responsible for  much of  the existing loss of faith in the  system   of   party   government  ��������� under   which   these   ills   have  Been bred.   Nevertheless here is  a man elected under,the system  of party government by a great  dominant party to   the. highest  office in the gift of the American people; a man   who-"as1 a  party man could figlit' shoulder  to shoulder with his fellow-republicans'and deal hard  blows  for the common cause������������������;   but a  man who has the breadth,   the  honesty   and    the   good   sense  to keep partyism in  its proper  place, and when  placed at  the  head of the nation, can sink the  politician   in    the    statesman.  Thus when doing credit to himself, he  honors  his  party  and  honors the nation which  chose  him for president.     ���������  The annual messsage  of  the  President, "was,   we  believe,   in  the early days of  the  republic,  regarded as an important  state  document, but like many  other  things that become a matter of  routine, can drop into the   commonplace,   and   has    done   so.  .What precedent  or precedents  there may be for the issue of a  special address of this -kind  so  shortly after the  annual  mes-.  sage,   we   do   not   pretend   to  know ; but in this case it is most  timely, and that, it is inspiring  not only to the  citizens  of the  United States but to those  of  all self-governing  countries,   it  would seem that the inspiration  had come to him when the yoke  of routine  was divested.    The  conditions  are   practically  unchanged from what they were  a month ago when the annual  message was   written,   but   in  this last message is the fire and  the   intense   earnestness    that  will compel attention and carry  .rfjeomvkition.- >T-ht������i;e-*J($r--ju������t <e-  nough of the combative in it to  gh'e it spice. He had been assailed and he tuts "jback* To  those who had called liim - a  wrecker-fund Blamed him for  bringing on the late business  panic he retorts :  '���������The business which is hurt  by the movement of honesty is  the kind of business, in the long  run, it pays the country to have  hurt. Jt is the kind of business  which has tended to make the  very name 'high finance' a term  of scandal to which all honest  American business men should  join in putting an end."  The   message   traverses  the  whole social and industrial fabric that affects the well-being of  the-American   people,   and  in  " straight-flung words and few"  its  writer lias given   them   as  virile an utterance as has been  given  out  in  any  age or any  clime by the head of a nation to  its people.    The message takes  high ground and while striving  for a noble ideal the plans outlined to obtain that   ideal   are  too practical to  have anything  of the utopian about them.   His  gospel of reform is militant and  it is the wrong-doer he is after,  whether that wrong-doer is using vast wealth to help him rob  the   people    and    oppress   the  wage-e.arner, or "is playing  the  role of  demagogue  to  mislead  the unthinking wage-eai ner into interference with or deeds p*f  violence against property rights  or personal  liberty.    The' man  who can  find  anything .in   the  message  to -rail at or who can  read it without feeling the better for doing  so,  has much  to  learh in what should constitute  good citizenship.  ���������to disguise the little 'pill' he was  required to take by endeavoring; tor?create a side -issue with  Attorney-general Bowser, but  the ttiry fox-hound's' will see  through the trick and will refuse to follow the red herring  route, even if the franking of  the December (speech was ��������� so  nicely timed as to reach the  clectoi-s about the same time as  as the newspaper references to  the January speech  mU  tHE BANK OF  This Bank has a record behind it of nearly three quarters of  a century of successful banking in Canada, with assets  increasing every year until they now exceed $50,000,000.

Macpherson pretended to be,  will  swallow his convictions (if he  ever  had any), and. state publicly that  "no patriot in British Columbia  could allow the Natal Act to be  passed" it certainly  goes without saying,  that he  never  expects to ask. .the  electors  there  to vote fo.r him again ; and men  in his position are not going to  do-tliat sort of thing  without  promise tliat' their future  will  be duly provided for.    The very  distinct volt face made'by Duncan Ross  is, alsq   sufficient   to  make one curious as to what it  ���������all means.    On  December  16th  he could deliver a speech on the  Asiatic question in Ottawa that  he considered sufficiently acceptable to the people of this  province to cause  him   to   have a  copy franked  to  every  elector  in  Yale-Cariboo, arid on .lanuary 24th he  took an   attitude  most antagonistic to the wishes  of the people of British  Columbia-on that-'same'question. This  points unmistakably to a green  field not far away.    Laurier is  a good disciplinarian and far be  it from us to find fault with him  for putting  the   lads  through  their facings.   They  had  their  little fling on Boston tea parties  and anti-Asiatic speeches and it  is mete that they should now be  made to toe   the   mark,   make  their little  bow  and  say their  little piece or go hungry to bed.

Camp Hedley lies on the western side  of the Okanagan range' of mountains,  whose, highest poin ts- here - reach .an  elevation'of a little, more than 7,0(X)feet  above   sea.   level.      The   neighboring  country  is  characterized by comparatively rounded outline and moderate  relief to   the east and south,   but the  northwestern portion  lies in the deep  .   and   narrow canyon  of Twenty-mile  creek,   where extremely  rugged' and  precipitous conditions   prevail.      The  part of the valley of this creek  which;  lies in our map is V-shaped, and about  4,000 feet  in  depth.'    The   slopes on  either side are   very: steep,   and fre-'  .'  quently impossible to climb.    Broken  rock talus slopes topped by precipitous  '". bluffs are everywhere; very common,  while the narrow box-canyons cut  by  the torrential streams in the mountain  side, are nothing more than mere gashes almost imperceptible from the oppo-  '*" site, side of the,yalley.'   These canyons  ','.  are frequently the only possible means  of ascending or descending the mountain  sicle,  while tiie' iidges   between  .them are quite impossible to explore.  Theaclion of erosion in this canyon  is very strong, and is equal, if not in  advance, of, the decomposition of the  rocks by oxidjitibn, arid the finding of  secondary surface deposits of oxidized  ores is not to be expected where such  conditions prevail. Every shower of  rain throughout the summer washes  down the canyon sides masses of rock  that only a little undermining was sufficient to'dislodge, so that the Daly  Reduction Company, whose flume runs  for three miles, through the canyon,  have to: keep men on the watch night  and day to guard against or repair accidents from falling rodks." -Drift doe's'  not coyer the rocks in this section, so  that'in its accessible parts the geological relations are easily studied.  ���������On the slope of Eighteen-mile creek  and overlooking the Similkameen river  the physical features are not so ��������� bold,  and tiie conditions are hot unlike those  which hold over the rest of ��������� the 'Interior Platefiir. This part is not heavily  wooded ahd the southern faces are usually !devftidWf a liti^ The slopes  are -not, so' steep . that drift* will not  rest, and unless exposed by the pick  and shovel of the prospector outcrops"  of rock are rare. The--prospectorWho  owns claims on this side of the hill is  likely to ihcur*"a g^'eat-.deal more' expense in prospecting, and hli': is also  .more likely when he does locate ah ore  body to find it very much more oxidized and enriched on the surface than  in the Twenty-mile canyon;      For the diversity of physical conditions on the two sides of the hill,  one  must look to-glacial causes.   Looking  at the valley of the Similkameen river  from the top of the gravity tram line,  and particularly to the southward, one  is at once struck by its glacial outlines.  The sleep sides and   broad  drift-filled  bottom make a well-defined -IJ-shape  that   is   characteristic   of all  valleys  modified by the scouring action  of a  glacier.     Typical  also,.are' the-many  hanging valleys that maybe -'noted' oil  the south side.    Heiiry creek, Siisanne  creek and John creek  all steepen suddenly  in  grade  on   approaching   the  main   valley; and  have not yet had  time since  the disappearance of the  gladier to "carve ciuta valley of uniform  grade.   The deep canyon of *,Twenty-  mile creek may be also attributable to  the same c*iuse. .The retreating glacier  which filled  tho' Siniilkameeii  valley  eventually left the Twenty-mile creek  occupying ��������������� hanging valley and emptying into  the main valley by a short  steep fall at  its mouth.    While  the  sihaller stream's were Unable in  the  time.since  the' disappearance of the  glacier   to   cut   do.wn   their'  valleys,  Twenty-mile   creek,   with   its  larger  volume   and   greater  erosive   power,  was able to deepen its own' bed in'the  i-ock and to form its present V-shaped  valley. -Tii this'wbVk it niafy have been  materially assisted  by  taking- ad vantage of the  numerous faults and frac-  Investment  And  Will  Make  Money  is tho supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects. It is the mining ahd business  centre of the  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway; and with the advent of this road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...
