O. HOX 51011  li/ancouver, - - B. C.  i  Of the measures hefoie the House  that are nearing completion or have  already 1 had their final .reading-the  more important may be considered  the "Coal Mines Regulation Act" introduced by the Minister of 'Mines  which is a. very comprehensive bill.  In'other bills brought in by members  of the cabinet, the Attorney-General  has.assumed responsibility for a number among which are the Motor Traffic Regulation Act. County-Courts  Act Amendment aud othei s while the  Provincial Secretary has charge of the  Public Service act and a measure for  Health Regulation in Lumber Camps,  Railway Camps, Mining'Canips etc.  The Standing Committees for the  session, and iu these the ,real work of  the legislature is clone, jvere appointed. On two of the heaviest of these  Similkameen's representative has a  place aud the cliaiimaiiship of the  Public Accounts Committee is one  which will entail much labor and a  great deal of responsibility.

The sensation of the session thus far  was precipitated by an outsider, the  secretary of the Esquiinalt Liberal  executive, who caused to be distributed a leaflet on which was a resolution  asking Jardine to resign. It was a  gross breach of parliamentary rules  and rendered him liable to be called  before the bar of the House to answer  for the offence, but it brought Jardine  to his feet and much of the inner history of the party and its troubles  came out and this of necessity drew  Brewster also into the fray. Jardine,  however, would have obtained more  of the sympathy of the House if he  had left unsaid his references to the  Templeman episode.  The Vancouver members asked for a  commission to investigate the cause of  the high price of coal in that city and  obtained same.  Hay ward, of (.'owichan, introduced  a resolution which brought reciprocity into the limelight and no doubt  was left as to the feeling of the legislature against that move on the part  of Dominion   Commissioners  Fielding  Vancouver. B. ;C��������� Feb . 2.���������Reports  from reliable sources state that the  Canadian Northern and Vancouver,  Victoria and Eastern railways will cooperate in running from Hope to Vancouver. The lines of both roads from <i  point near Sumas river to Hope aie  practically parallel along the south  bank of the Fraser for 40 miles and it  is understood the management of the  Canadian Northern has concented to  allow the other roads running right-,  over this section?  In return the Coast-Kootenay line is  said to have consented to the Canadian Northern using its tracks from  Peat Kells to Port Mann according to  a temporary arrangement aheadv announced as well as over .the Great  Northern track into Vancouver. Positive verification of this airangement  cannot be obtained but indication  coyeiing construction work point to  its being carried out. One re������ult would  be the opening of the Coast-Kootenay  line at a comparatively early date.  J. Kennedy, engineer for the V,, V.  <fc 15., is planning to "end ont one more  engineer ing patty over the Hope mountain in the hope of securing an easier  grade before the final route .is located.  The last survey gave a line with a 2.5  per cent gradient which is better than'  the 4.4 per cent grade used by the C.  P. R. at Field hefoie the spiral tunnel  was opened, and the line will be constructed along that survey if nothing  better can be obtained.  V. V. & E.

The application form A is not in accordance, with the Act."  In reply I wrote as follows, enclosing the deeds, form. A and fee as before, (filling in the admeasurement or  acreage" which,I noticed was omitted.)  "The. Registrar  New Westminster.  Dear Sir:  Yours of the 31st Dec., received  with'enclosures as stated.I herewith  return,deed for registration.  You state curtly in your letter that  "form A. is not correct". It is inconceivable to me why you are not obliging enough to state exactly what my  error is. If the form is wrong kindly  enclose a correct one.  One expect* a little consideration  from a man in your position and if  you do nob seefit to comply with.my request, I will show you no consideration in getbing to the root of this matter and finding out where you expect  I am to get the information, if not  from the man who is paid by the public money for that purpose.  Yours truly  In reply  I   received  the following  letter,  Tc Esq..  Vancouver Province)  ,    Following out the   statements   recently  made  by Mr.  James J. Hill in  Vancouver' that the  Great Northern  would  push  construction  on   the V.  V. <fc E. line from Princeton westward  across  the  Hope Mountains the   announcement was made yesterday that  within  a short  time tenders will be  called for  the grading   of   forty-two  miles of line between  the new coal  town  of Cardiff,   west of Princeton,  and  Summit on   the Goquihalla river.  It was akso stated  that steel  would  be  laid this  year fiom  Princeton   to  Cardiff and from  Abbotsford east to a  point in  the vicinity of Sumas River.  Work is at present shut down at the  esstem    end  of   the   proposed   route  between  the Boundary country and  the  coast but it is  believed that within  a short   time construction operations  will be resumed.    The   line has  been  graded,from Princeton   on   to  Cardiff,  some thirteen miles, and it is  declared that before the end of the  season the rails  will extend westward  fiom Princeton for at least that distance.    The grading contract of J. W.  Stewart ������fc Company from Abbotsford  eastward to Chilliwack, about twenty-  four  miles, i&  now almost three-quarters on the way to completion and will  be finished   by   the middle   of April  if the full contract is carried out.   For  the  present, however,  there is a possibility,  it  is  stated,  that   tiie work  will  not be  cairicd any farther east  than just across the Sumas i-iver.  Tendeis will be sought shortly for  the bridging work between Abbotsford and the Sumas river so that,  when the grading is finished everything - will be in readiness for track-  laying. It is the intention to 'lay-  rails from Abbotsford east some time  this season, although ;the exact termination of the steel for the present  has not yet been decided on. The  necessary construction of a great deal  of bridging along the route east of  Abbotsford is expected to delay the  steel work there to a considerable extent and it is thought very probable  that the first,rails to be laid'tin's year*  on the V. V..& E. will be put down on  the line west from Princeton.  The gap between Chilliwack, where  the Stewart contract ends, and Cardiff is about 208 miles via' Hope.  When the grading contract west from  Cardiff to Summit is awarded there  will only be sixty-six miles of route  between Princeton on the east and  Abbotsford on the west, not covered  by construction contracts.  Nothing will be done regarding the  proposed seven mile tunnel through  Hope Mountains near Summit for the  time being. It was explained by a  Great Northern official yesterday that  it would be impossible to go ahead  with a tunnel there until the line had  justified it by returning a dividend to  the company. In the meantime the  grades would have to be overcome  with extra engine powei.  FRUIT INSPECTION  Some    Hints   to   Importers   of   Nursery  Stock and Other Orchard Supplies.  Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 30th 1011.  The Editor, The Gazette  Hedley, B. C.  Dear Sir:  The Public Press of this Province  without distinction of party has always given this Department very efficient assistance; indeed, I have always  held that without the co-operation of  the Press we could never have enforc-  '. *t'' '���������-".��������� ��������� ��������� -    ��������� ��������� ���������   ��������� " ���������   i-  ed   our    Horticultural    Regulations,,  which are proving of such immense  advantage to the fruit-growing industry of British Columbia.' I would,  therefore, take the liberty of requesting you to grant me the use of your  valuable columns to direct the attention of all importers of nursery stock  to section 4 of the Horticultural Regulations, which provides that certified  invoices of all* shipments of nursery  stock;-trees and plants, must be furnished: to the Inspector of Fruit Pests,  at-Vancouver, at the time when such  shipments are delivered for inspection.  The reason, for this is that when a  case of goods arrives, we know by the  invoice what it should contain, aud are  prepared to-check the contents over  with the invoice. This greatly expedites the business of inspection and  enables us to deal promptly with all  importations.  It is clearly in the interests of the  importers that we should be able to  detect any mistake that may have  been made in shipping the goods. All  this was carefully considered when  the Horticultural Rules wereadopted, v  hut' unfortunately many of the importers neglect to comply with this'-  Regulation.  * I would therefore, urge that a general observance of this rule be adopted, .  The importations of nursery stock  are largely on the increase, and I am  jiisb completing additional facilities  for inspection.  Our staff will be doubled this year,  so.that whatever delays may have occurred in the past may be avoided in  future, if the importers comply with  the regulations above referred to.  Thanking you for your assistance, 1  am  Yours faithfully,  Thos, -Cunningham  Inspector of Fruit Pests.  GOLF SOCIAL  THE LYCEUM PLAYERS  and Patterson,  Stocks  A"iin������s  M&rk>&rt B. Brown  Broker  , 1IHMIIKH   VANCOUVER  MINING EXCHANGE  ���������1-43 Pender St. \V. Vancouver.  Write me about your claims  Hedley, B. C.  I beg to acknowledge receipt of your  favor of Jan. 7th, with enclosures as  stated. 1 return herewith all papers  in your letter as this application does  not comply with the law. Owing to  the tone of your letter I do not consider it advisable to go into details."  Although not mentioned in the letter, a new Form A was enclosed and on  comparing the forms I find that the  new one has the following words added to the final declaration "and that  the title deeds mentioned hereon are  all those in my custody, possession or  power relating to same..,  1 have no means of knowing whether the omission of the above sentence  was the soli! obstacle, but assuming  that it was, I wish to ask you Mr.  editor if the registrar would have exceeded ln's duty had he been courteous  enough in the first instance to have  sent me a new form, calling my attention to this additional sentence? at  Continued on I'afje Three  The Lyceum Players who appeared  here on Tuesday night shared with  Twelfth Night the honor of being the  best of the Walker series ot entertainments which have been put on in Hedley. The company is under the direction of Walter McRaye, well known  through Canada as being one of the  most popular entertainers on the road  and knowing what the public want he  is able to choose the requisite qualities  in the members of his company. Fortunately the people of Hedley seemed  to have got an inkling that a treat  was in store and gave them a good  house. The harp selections by Ronian-  illo were an entertainment in themselves: Bruce Gordon had a pleasing  tenor voice and sings with expression  and sympathy. His selections also were  good and in'"Mary of Argyle" and  "Standard on the Braes o' Mar" he  .showed his ability to interpret the  songs of Scotland. The short plays  or characters sketches by Walter McRaye and Gladys Noxon were cleverly  done and showed that in even more  ambitions role.-* they would make good.  McRave also gave some of his "habitant sketches from Druinniond and  never gave "Leetle Bateese" better  than on this occasion.  On Thursday evening of last week  the  Hedlev  Golf Club demonstrated,  the social  capabilities  of the club in  the  interesting   and  most   enjoyable  evening  which  the  members  nad together in Fraternity Hall.    The event  which prompted the occasion was the  departure of two  of the  members  of  the club,  Miss Bond  and Miss Fraser*.  All    the    members were   out except  three or four who  were  detained   by  illness or duties elsewhere.    Dancing  and cards formed the   main portion of  the.    evening's   entertainment   but a  pleasant   diversion    was  a   Limerick  contest wherein  members of the club,  had been asked to hand in one or more  Limericks  on   members   of   the  club,  characteristics  of their  play etc.   the  Limericks to be  handed  in   under assumed names.   The judges were G. P.  ���������Jones,  T. H.   Rotherhain  and A. Me-  graw and as nearly a  hundred  were  put in  and they  hail to lie judged according to  the roles of prosody it was  a rather strenuous  night's  work   for  the judges.     The reading aloud to the  company  of a. few dozen of the catchiest among them afforded considerable  merriment.    The  first prize   was won  by   H. A. Ifincks  under  the   110111  de  plume "Stymie" and the second  by L.  C. Rolls who signed "Miss B. Ginner".  The prize Limericks were:  There,  is   here a  young  golfer called  French  And   his love of the  quench  If he'd not aim so long  game  vou  can t  I am sure I'm not wrong  Hincks and   Rolls  would wrench.  from    the  top  he  ���������.Stymie,  and   mildness  There's  for   meekness  Miss Eraser  Why   the    hardest golf luck   cannot  fai������e her;  If that shy man could see  What a. blessing she'd, be  He would   soon pop  the question  and  squdze'er.  ���������Miss B.

If  such a sentiment prevailed iii tiie   Attorney-General's     department      then  there would be little to hope'from the  inspector.    Lawyers  are  all   right   in  their place but things would   come   to  a pretty  pass  indeed  if a mail  weie  compelled to employ a'lawyer for the  transaction   of  every-little    pice-*    of  official-business   he 'may   require   to  have done.    The. people of British Columbia were accustomed  to attend   to  their own  official   business  with  the  help  of the government officials   long  before   there   was   money, enough   in  the country to tempt a lawyer to stay,  iiiid in many country districts  the necessity for obliging,   helpful  officials  and simplicity in procedure is as great  to-day.    This is a fact that no department of  the government should forget   and   we   are sure   the    Premier  knows the province and its wants well  enough to  see  that government officials try to asssist instead  of  hamper  and annoy.  ,-oow,  "GO.

Try  \\\\\\v\VM  registrar had exhibited a little more  obliging spirit he could have saved  time for himself and time and much  annoyance to the party who was  doing his best to transact some business in  the   registry  office.     Had   he  ��������� merely added half a dozen words to  his note of Dec. 31 by way of hint at  what was lacking it would have been  no harder to haye done so than write  what he did. Then he would have  been saved the time and annoyance of  reading this man's semi-indignant  reply and of wiiting his own letter of  .Jan. 10. This curt writing ot "not in  accordance with the Act" is fool-work  and should be put a stop to. It only  causes delay and bad feeling and helps  to make the business of the registry  offices more  conge.-tod   than   there  is  ��������� any need  for.  This matter of  the  registry  offices  came up iu the deliate  on   the address  when Premier McBride, in replying to  .Mr. Brewster, said :  "It was true there had been complaints about the length of time it  took to secure documents from the  registry offices, nut when one look  into account the immense advance in  the business of transfers in this province it was not to be wondered at.  Moreover, the registration of titles  was work that could not be hurried.  If was work that took time even  where- assistance was ample. However, the Attorney-General had appointed an inspector of registry offices, and since effort had been made to  keep iqi with the work a great many  of the complaints had gone, if the.  honorable gentleman would be patient will) the government for a little  longer he would find that they would  restore the registry offices to their accustomed   usefulness.

Boeing recently made a trip to  Anarchist mountain to procure lumber  'for the bridge now being  built over  ���������  the Siinilkameeii at Stirling Creek but  found on reaching there that the mills  : were all frozen up.     They were therefore  obliged to  goto  the woods   and  hew out what timbers  were needed to  - > swing the  bridge  before high water  and pub on  the covering after lumber  can be secured in the spring.  The second zero snap of the winter  came along last week but it was of  short duration, only two mornings giving zero registrations. It may be possible that we may not have another;  as two in the winter is about the  orthodox supply although it has exceeded that on one or two occasions.  At all events.the sun is beginning to  assert its power and a little sun thawing each day has been noticeable for  the past two weeks.  The ice harvest in Hedley this year  has been delayed several weeks later  than in former winters. When they  were ready'to make a start they found  that there were three layers of ice  with water running between. The last  cold snap, however, connected them  np and given a thickness of about two  feet. - With that thickness it is not at  all probable that it will again sink and  allow another How of water to cover  it. A commencement was made at  cutting on Saturday.  The tube mill which has been in  operation for about a fortnight is  proving an eye-opener as to what it is  likely to accomplish in the way of a  closer saving of values from the Nickle  Plate ores. The tailings from the  batteries that are being re-ground in  the tube mill give a wonderful showing of fine-grained conceirtrates that  are being liberated in the finer grinding of the product. This gives some  idea of the losses that have occurred  all these years in which the tailings  were being allowed to go do down the  river.  W. E. Nieholl', representing the  Oliver Typewriter Co. was in town on  Saturday and iua.de us a call. There  are very few newspaper offices in  which he is not known and the Oliver  seems to have got a strong footing  with the newspaper fraternity, as  most of the offices are equipped with  them. It seems to stand the constant  thump of newspaper work without going out of whack and this feature together with the fact that in the second  hand quotations issued by secondhand  dealers the Oliver suffers less depreciation in value than other makes i.s  evidence of its wearing qualities.  Nevertheless, for a beautiful easy  touch and general utility it is hard to  heat the Monarch.  Now that the alterations and improvements in the reduction plant  have been a bout, completed, Mr. .Jones,  the gener.-il su peri n tend en t? will devote  more time, to tiie,.' inine and some  thorough work in the" way, of mine;  development iniiv be looked for during j  the coming season. j  A decidedly bum organization in the!  show line held the boards in Frater- |  nity hall on Friday evening last. Only  one day's notice was given in the  shape of a few flashy pictures1, and  some, rather unprepossessing photos  on improvised bill-boards at a couple  of points in the. town, ahd an aggregation coming in that way is not likely to inspire confidence. As a result  very few put in an appearance, and report says that the attendance, small  as it was,' proved to be even better  than the show deserved. .   .

'-' -  The mere enclosure of the proper  form A when the deeds were first returned would have served the purpose  as far as'T can see,. \'eb Mr. Registrar  has shown an utter indifference to the  needs and i-ighls of a long .suffering  public who are paying his salary..  I had  intended taking this  matter  up with  the -.'Attorney-General's dept.,  but was told by a friend, who had been  so rash as to  try it,   that I   would be  requested to get the desired information from a solicitor.   Can you tell.hie  Mr; ��������� Editor if thiu is a fact?   Are.'the  law's of this province framed to create  a legal graft of this   description?   Is a.  poor man  obliged   to surrender  the  equivalent of two days labor to obtain  information    which   public   servants'  drawing handsome salaries could and  ought to supply in two millutes?   The  government should have these form's,  with full instructions printed on theni,  at convenient places throughout the  province to be supplied to the public  when, needed.     If this were done a  solicitor' would be no more needed in  the registration of a. deed  than in the  registration of a letter at a post.office.  ���������I would not ask you for space ;if my  case was an obscure exception, button  the  contrary all over the province it  is  the rule for Registrars' to subject  the public to many petty annoyances  for the. sole purpose it would appear  of playing into the hands of the solicitors.     In most instances the registrar  would save his office much  unnecessary  trouble   by giving a little ..information,   but it seems to be their set  purpose to give no   information.whatever.   This policy on  the part of the  land registry department ought to be  stopped, and it can be if the Press will  take the matter up and stay with it  till something is .accomplished.   .v  Buy Now; Don't Put It Off as the Price is Going Up.
