In election of the officers for the ensuing year no changes , were made  further than to substitute T. C. Reve-  ly-for G. P. Jones as the representative from the Nickel Plate mine, but  Mr. Jones will continue to work with  the Board as before. The directors  elected were: Arthur Clare, T. C.  Revely, L.'G. MacHattic, F.H.

BARNES,  Secretary  ARTHUR CLARE  W. M  E. A. C. STUDD  JIAKOI.D MAYNK' DALV  STUDD & DALY,  Members Vancouver Stock Exchange  Real Estate,  Insurance, Stock, Loan  and Mortgage Brokers  728 Hastings Street W.  Opposite Now Post Oilieo  1'. O, BOX 900  Vancouver, - - B. C.  New Yorks, Jan. 28.���������James J. Hill  one of the first to issue a warning  against national extravagance, said today that half the problem of the high  cost of living lies in the discretion of  the housewife'.  "If a housekeeper," said Mr. Hill,  "instead of standing in front of si telephone to order the family: supplies,  would go to market and learn what  foods'iue cheapest and what are dear,  there would be less of this kind of  talk. As I have said before, the high  cost of living is the cost of living  high."  Mr. Hill denied that there is any industrial and financial uneasiness over  the attitude of the government toward corporations. Asked to what he  attributed the depression of the stock  market, he answered laconically,  "Hysteria."  An attempt is being made to forum  new state to be callad Siskiyou, out of  Northern California and Southern  Oregon.  The J. G.  and Aggie Marion Stuttz  Go. completed a- three nights engagement''in Hedley on - Saturday night  last, -and made a "host offriendsher*e  who were delighted  with the entertainment  they provided.    The building used was  Shatford's hall  which  afforded-better facilities1 for staging  the various 'pieces its well as  giving  more'ioom for larger audiences.   The  play on the first night was a unique  production  with an   interesting plot  and-offering   room   for   diversity   of  histrionic  talent and was one  of the  cleanest from a  moral  point of view  that wo'have seen among modern productions.     It  was  played  under the  name  "Was She  to Blame"  and was  compiled  for and   in a great measure  by Mr.  Stuttz himself,*-and-the name  was changed here to   "Till Death Do  We Part".     The reason  -Mr.   Stuttz  made the change: (and it meant a considerable loss to him to do so inasmuch  as  he  had a large  sum   laid  out in  printed' matter* under  that name) was  that he had frequently been annoyed  in    hearing remarks   which   showed  him that in the minds of more people  than  he cared   to  own   there  was a  tendency to read into tho name a sug-  gestiveness of evil that was altogether  unwarranted.     The acting of   J.   G.  Stuttz and of  his wife  who took   the  part of leading lady was   the   main  feature   of   all performances,    while  their children, a precocious little chap  of 4  years and  his sister  two  years  older, showed marked cleverness and  careful  training and  their* specialties  formed an  interesting feature of each  night.    The  troupe numbers fourteen  and  the members  thereof gave   fair  support to the leading roles.   The play j  While one of the old steam com-  pressors-in the power house was being  moved on to a foundation prepared  for it in. another -location, to make  room for, new machinery that is coming, the work at the mine was. shut  down for tlnee or four days but was  resumed at thebeginniria; of this week.  Word . has' been, recei ved at the  works'that the new machinery will be  here on the 8th and an erecting engi-  gineer- is coming.- with it to sec up and  start it-in operation. ^Meanwhile the  two old^ steam. compressors , and a faiv  head of water up at the lake may keep  everything moving as before while the  new machinery is being stalled, for it  is estimated that there is water  enough remaining to keep going dur-  February if-it does not turn in too  cold again.   .        -,���������  ���������  The machinery that is coming in  and the hew plant:to be installed is  partially, a re-modeling of the presen t  water.- power compressor, ��������� which is to  be re-arranged and fitted with steam  cylinders. -The:hew equipment when  completed will ��������� be a 17x36 .cross compound, Corliss^ condensing steam air  compressor* connected with the original water wheel and available to be  used as an ..all water : machine  when there is water enough, all steam  when'there- is no water as in the case  of a break in the: .flume; and partly  water and partly!steam, when the  water supply gets short.  StiHAhead.  First Golfer (who is beating the  curate ' all' hollow)���������"Never mind,  Sander's. You wait till you are saying  the burial service over my grave."  Sanders���������"But, my good man, even  then it will be your hole."  on  the second   night   was   the  time  honored production of Rip Van Winkle  which Joe Jefferson made famous and  in this also Mr. Stuttz made a decided  hit,   leaving little room  for improvement while Mrs.  Stuttz was a most  effective Gretchen  and   the girl who  took  the    part of Meenie   did  some  clever* work iii   this as  well as  in the  performances   of  the   first   and   last  nights.   There were very fair houses  each   night,   which   was scarcely to  be expected,  coming so shortly  after  the hospital ball,  but in  view of the  largeness of the company  it is questionable   whether they managed   to  make  it do much more than pay expenses, with   the houses   they   had.  Their visit  was certainly enjoyed by  play-goers and it is hoped that Hedley  may have a visit from them again.  A welcome visitor to Hedley last  week was,Mr. M. K. Rodgers of Seattle, who took a run up to Hedley to  get a hieatii of good healthy Similkji-  meen air, and to take back Mis Rodgers who had been spending a couple  of weeks visiting' hei lather and  mother.  ��������� Mr.. Rodgers is looking for more  activity in minim; in this province  during the present year than has been  seen for. *-,ome time and he expects the  district around Portland canal' to come  in for a veritable boom owing to the  keen interest that is now being taken  in the deposits of that locality and the  attention they are attracting from  mining investors.  -'  Mi.  Rodgers appealed  particularly  well pleased with  the way the Nickel  Plate has responded  to   the   development work which has been done during the last four months, the fiist real  development which the mine had rhad,  apart from ore extraction,  for years.  The policy of the new company in the  matter of   development    appaiently  suits him down .to   the   ground.   To  him it   was not only gratifying  but  amusing  to compute the present mine  maps with those of a iye.ii* ago.      Although the gtourid  is just the same,���������  where the maps.of a year ago showed  "no ore," they now give  much  more  palatable   information    of    nice   ore  bodies of good  pay  values  that were  theie all the time but were  not to  be  found because the management knew  too much.    It is often a very bad thing  in mining when people get to know so  much that they fancy that.ore htrs no  right to be any place where they think  it should .not'be; but happily tliat way  of looking at. things is a thing  of  the  past on the Nickel Plate, and the manager in charge instead of oeing hedged  about with restrictions is encouraged  to use his judgment and experience of .'  the   property,   together   with  advice  and suggestions   from  his  principals  who are practical capable men  themselves.  Regarding the camp as a whole, Mr.  Rodgers has implicit faith in its future  and thinks  that  the   Department   of  Mines should issue a  special   bulletin  on the camp and its possibilities.     He  is well satisfied with the mining laws  of the province, anil hopes  to see the  Premier continue iu his resolution  to  head off any. tinkering with the Mining Act.   As regards   fees,  he thinks  British Columbia is getting a bigger-  return from their mineral  lands,than  any  country,   he    kiiows of,  and yet  mining mem are  not complaining in  view of the  protection   that is given  them and the clean cut way in which  business is done.  Neither doeo he take  any   stock    in    these    agitations   to-  increase the taxes on mineral lands so  as to bear harder on . the  prospector-  who, he thinks, is now bearing his full  share of the load. On the contrary, he  thinks     that    every   encouragement  should he shown the   prospector,  and  if a   hundred or two  more  of   them  could be induced to come in   here  and  prospect, the province  would be  well  repaid for any encouragement which  might be given them.    In this connection he was also of the impression that  there, was  no better field for the prospector than right here in Camp   Hedley and vicinity.    If a hundred of the  men  who   had  made Goldfields   and  other Nevada   camps   famous   after  others  had    been    walking   over the  ground for twenty years could be  induced to spend, a few seasons prospecting   this   vicinity,    as   it   shonld   be  prospected, he  thought their chances  excellent.    So f-tr as holding up capital by asking  high prices and giving  insufficient time to investigate is  concerned, he didn't think the prospector  was as bad   as  the middlemen.    The  day is past when   men pay out  much  money for unproved mineral  claims  without.getting ample opportunity to  Expensive Living  "An operation will cost you $500."  "And is it absolutely necessary ?"  "You cannot live without   It."  "Say, Doc, the  high  cost of living  can't all be blamed on the tariff,    can  it?"  Why shouldn't some of our coltish  young rivrrs in the wild and wooly  west go on the spree occasionally  when old staid fluvial patriarchs like  the Seine, Tiber and A1110 are indulging in high jinks?  ���������HHB THE   HEDLEY GAZETTE,  FEBRUARY 3, 1910.

Those whobelieve thatthis country's  future depends largely on careful conservation of its natural resources (and  who is there ..who has .^giyen. any attention to the question.. can believe  * otherwise) have reason to feel keenest  satisfaction at the evidence on all  sides not only that the sentiment is  growing but also that the time for*  talking is at last reaching the time for  action.  More attention is being paid to tiie  subject by the press of both Canada  and the United States, but much of  this, so fa;- as British Columbia is concerned, has been forced by public an-  ' noiineemcuts, along those, lines; on "the  part of leading legislators, prominent  among whom is -"our own Premier,  .McBride, who made it a vital question  by giving it the prominence of a reference in the speech from the throne,  ;uid followed this lip with a cleaV-cut  declaration of policy in his admirable  hour and a half speech on the address.  Then too, it begins to look as if the  Dominion government which has been  more 'or less friendly in the past and  deserving of some credit for what  little they have already been doing in  the way of encouraging forestry, is  likely to take more advanced ground  in the near future as evidenced by  Sifton's outspokenness at the conservation convention in Ottawa a few  days ago, in which he admitted the  government's responsibility to compel  the railway companies to look after  Ares along the line of their roads. The  greatest hindrance to effective aid  from federal sources was the extent  to which certain departments were  subservient to the army of spoliators  eternally on the move for franchises  and concessions that belong to the  rieople, an influence ever powerful to  crush out any obstaele placed in their  way as witness the removal of Pinchot  in the United States; and if our federal  executive can once break away from  it and resolve to guard the interests of  the people the cause of conservation  will be almost won.  Two immediate aims lie before the  friends of conservation. One is to  protect existing forests from further  spoliation and the other* is to repair as  far as possible by reforestation the  losses already caused. It was evidently with both those aims in view that  Premier McBride outlined the work  which he regarded as.ly.iug near-est at  handfor him and -his government. To  protect the ��������� existing, .fqi*ests and use  tbeir forest wealth scientifically.;und  at the same time observe the vested  riglits of holders of tiinber.lands was  the problem that lay before thu.government of British Columbia. The  present tenure in these timber lands  is a twenty.-one year leasehold, thus  nn'.king it necessary for the holders to  strip the land of its timber within  that time or lose all -opportunity of  gain from their present holdings.  What the Premier indicated might be  done is to extend the term of leasehold indefinitely pending the report  of the special forestry commission,  and by means of the information obtained therefrom, decide '-upon-"what  re--frictions should be placed-;iupon  lumbermen'' in the cutting of; timber  from their holdings, as well as'enact  more' stingent regulations to' protect  tl.ie. forests from further losses liy fire  and reclaim by reforestation some of  the wastes laid bare by fire :a������d by  the-greedy lumberman. '-.'  ���������'*  There.'is' no   reason   why   scientific  'cutting- and i-ebu-esiatipii  should  not  g<i'.im   together.     No'"fair-minded in  tclligcnt 'lumberman should  object to  a regulation which would prevent him  from  cutting a   tree that  had,riot attained   almostits full growth,   and for  every such  tree  lie cuts,  require him  to plant  two young   trees.   'If this In;  done,  and  the  various   governments  take  hold of  the work  of forestry as  they should,   a few   decade's"should  suffice to see not only a vaJst increase  in  the forest wealth  of the country,  but also increased  volume of,water in  the streams thus adding vastly to the  wealth   of   the    country, fby;   giving  abundance of pure water and cheap  power ail  the year around.     Surely  this is an  end^which should enlist the  sympathy and co-operation qf, jail good  citizens.

He was fixing a  a type-writer and using a jack-knife  for^a screw-driver when a piece of  steel "flew and hit him in the eye, cutting the eye-ball which bled profusely,  and the steel 'remaining in the eye  caused intense pain. He came down  to Hedley where Dr. McEwen located  the piece of steel and extracted it for  him and the eye is now doing all right.

Superintendent Morgan;of the G. N.  was a brief visitor in Keremeos on  Sunday. He holds out little hope of a,  through train, being put on between  Spokane and Princeton.  Foxes are rarely seen in this valley  but Charlie Lowe recently bagged a  fine cross with a pelt in prime condition,. in the early ..daysFrank Richter  shot a red one at the lower ranch.  Several residents of Kereiiieos report having seen robins and .other  migratory birds early last week. Evi-'  dently our, feathered friends have  entirely ignored the calender and been  guided solely, by the sprang like  weather of the past two weeks.  Messrs Hy. Nicholson, of Rock  Creek and Assessor Turner, of Fair-  wiew, were in town last Wednesday  holding court of revision of the assessment roll. Several appeals were made  and general satisfaction expressed  with the rulings of the court.  .T. J. Armstrong is extending his  visit.at the coast somewhat longer  than intended in order* to attend the  convention of, delegates of fanners'  institutes being held at Victoria this  we^k. Delegates to this convention  are given a round trip for the price of  single fare by the C. P. R.; the first  time that such a favorable rate has  been granted for a.similar purpose.  G. H. Broughton, civil engineer and  land surveyor, who has been spending  the past three weeks, at Princeton was  in town on Tuesday on his way back  to Penticton. ,. Mr. Broughton is considering making.-iris headquarters at  Princeton and covering the Nicoia  district, Siniilkameen valley and  Southern Okanagan. There should be  a first class opening for a surveyor in  this valley as at present none is located here.  On several occasions lately when the  ���������Weather was everything that could be  cleared at Keremeos the train has  pulled into the station here showing  it n mist akeable evidence of having  passed through snow storms on its  short trip up the valley. Earlier* in  the winter, when there was scarcely  enough snow here to make a snow  ball, thrre was considerably more at  Oroville. Such is the difference in  climate which may be found in travel-  in f; a very short distance in this  country.  -.,'��������� Jnstearl of holding the. usual -large  .number of fruit growers meetings  throughout the province,"this year' the  department of agriculture is considering holding fewer meeting** -at central  points.with aview,, presumably, of reducing expense, securing better attendance aiid creating some enthusiasm at these meetings.
