Important changes in provincial  lands and forests legislation .ire proposed in the ministerial measures  brought to the house by message  to-day, the former rejecting tho system  of thu past in charging for pre-empted  crown lands and offering instead free  holdings to settlers, who will be required to pay merely the $2 record  fee and $10 for crown grunt. The  standard size of holdings will continue  to be 100 acres, although power is  retained by the minister of lands to  decide as to the size of ;my individual  pre-emption or to reject an application  entirely'as such action appears to him  in the public interest, ;m explanation  of this provision being found possibly  in the fact that many orientals have  heretofore sought to take advantage  of the pre-emption law in securing  possession of provincial lands. The  minister is also empowered to allot  pre-emptions if it is deemed in the  public interest even in such reserved  localities as the provincial parks.  On Wednesday some ancient history  in connection with the coal strike at  Cumberland wns aired in the House,  following the introduction of a*'resolution by Mr. Parker Williams. M.P.P.,  in which he sought lo have a parliamentary^committee: appointed to-.investigate the conditions and issues at  variance between the Canadian  Collcries (Dunsmuir Ltd.) and their  employees. Mr. Williams made an  effort in this regard earlier in the  session, but owing to non-compliance  with the. rules of the House was forced  to postpone tho attempt.  Alleging that the Canadian Collieries  had discriminated   against   two  men  serving on a miners' "gas committee."  who in line with their duty had  reported gas in No. 2 mine at Extension, B.C., Mr. Williams alleged this  action had caused the company to  make things so unpleasant for one of  the men that he was obliged  to leave  could return to work at any time.  Mr. Williams' resolution was lost by  a vote of 38 to 2 in tiie ballot taken.  Hon. Mr. Ross, Minister of Lands,  exploited the starred heavens of  oratory on Tuesday in addresses which  accompanied the second readings of  the respective bills brought in by  himself in regard toc the extension of  Stratheona Park and the reservation  of 882 square miles of land in the  vicinity of Mount Hobson lo be used  for park purposes.  Dining the absence of the chairman  of the Private Bills Committee, Mr. E.  Millar, Mr. L. \\\. Shatford presided  over the activities of that both- between  the 30th day of .lanuary and the 0th  of February. Owing to the exceptionally large number of bills introduced  during the present session the work of  the Private Bills Committee has been  consequently heavy.  An announcement to'the direct that  a commission will be appointed for  investigation into the conditions sui-  rounding the pioduction, pi-ice and  sale of coal throughout the province,  was made on Thursday of last week  by Sir llichatd JIcBrido. This question was first Introduced two or three  years ago by the Vancouver members.  In all probability the identity of the  commissioner or commissioners who  will be appointed to conduct the  inquiry will be disclosed before the  close of the session.  The bill brought in by Dr. Young  respecting' the more, complete and  thorough registration o f births,  marriages and deaths, enforces the  present law in regard to the compilation of vital statistics.  In presenting the. bill before the  House on Thursday, the Hon. Dr.  Young pointed out the necessity for  members of -the clergy ,-ind medical  profession to register births, deaths  and marriages in order to insure  proofs of the legitimacy of children  and to protect the ritrlrfl:' of property.  Citing one instance thai-* had recently  come to his attention the Minister  told of a well-known minister who had  brought in for registration the accumulated statistics which had been  collected in his parish for twenty-five  years.

Pipe-fittingjione.  Extension. On being re-employed at  the Cumberland mine his identity was  discovered and because of his connection with the gas committee he was  discharged from the employ of the  company. The other member of the  committee, so stated Mr. Williams,  would have had to leave the employ of  the company had not the strike  occurred.  "It was this discrimination," de  clared Mi*. Williams. " that caused the  mi tiers to take a holiday, to allow the  company to reconsider the re-employment of the men."  A  lock-out  had  then   occurred, the  company taking the initiative.  In replying to the allegations of Mr.  Williams and speaking to the resolution Sir Richard McBride, Minister of  Mines, regretted first the occurrence  of the strike, which he believed had  caused no little suffering among the  families of the striking miners, as well  as the minor trouble of a coal scarcity  in cities like Vancouver and Victoria.  Iu the Premier's opinion it would be  a very strange proceeding to dictate  to a corporation as to the manner in  which they should treat their employes  or to tell them who they should or  should not employ. The Canadian  Oolleries Ltd. have a very large investment in the industry at Cumberland and Extension." declared the  Premier, " and they have already lost  over half a million dollars as the  result of the strike. It is unreasonable  that they would have incurred this  loss because of petty spite against two  minor employees, as Mr. Williams has  stilted.  Sir Richard stated that he had been  informed by the Company that,  providing the United Mine Woikers,  a, union with headquarters in Indianapolis, were not recognized as control  received itssecond reading on Thursday  provides authority for I he appointment  of fire wardens in districts to be designated by the Superintendent of  Insurance. It also requires reports of  all fires oecuring in the various localities. Another important provision  of the bill is that the required deposit  bonds of the insurance companies shall  become part and parcel of the securities  held by the government for use if  necessary.  " Could 1 have the support of my  party," said the Provincial Secretary,  Dr. Young, on Friday, "I would in -  troducea bill for compulsory cremation  instead of a, bill merely to validate the  practice."  The Provincial Secretary, who was  presenting for second reading "The  Cremation Act," went on to say that  he considered burning to be the most  sanitary and scientific means of disposing of the dead. The new act  would provide for the establishment  of crematoria, the operators of which  should pay an annual licence fee of  $50. All rites, services, etc., in honor  of the dead could be conducted-in the  same manner as earth burial.  Hon. Price Ellison, Minister of  Finance, who has been suffering from  a severe attack of appendicitis early in  the session, was able to resume his  duties on Tuesday.  PARCEL POST FROM  U.S.  It appears there was a mistake after  all in the idea which got abroad that  American mail matter for Canada  mailed there at the new parcel post  rates obtaining in that country would  come through to their destination in  Canada. General merchandise for  Canada is only mailable there at the  following rates:���������1 cent, per ounce up  tb 4 ounces, and then the weight on  parcels weighing over 4 ounees will be  12 cents per lb. or fraction of a pound.  The limit of weight for parcels  coming to Canada will be as before���������  4 lbs. 6 ourtces.   Only parcels conform  ing to these conditions will be accepted  ling their action iu the matter the men I for ddiverv in Canada.  The,concert given   by   Mrs.   ,T.  A.  Brown of Keremeos in Fraternity hall  on Friday evening last was a genuine  treat and fully met the high expectation   of the audience.     There  was a  very fair house notwithstanding several drawbacks which calculated to limit  the attendance and one  was  the  zero  snap which had lasted for several days  before and showed no marked  signs  of abating on   that night.    Nevertheless the goodly  number  who  braved  the cold were well repaid in the  treat  they enjoyed.   One drawback   which  Mrs. Brown and   her support  had  to  contend with was the piano which was  found to be  so badly out of tune  in  certain notes that they had to abandon  some of the numbers they iniended to  give  and   substitute other  pieces   on  different keys that were not so  much  affected with  the  derangement.    The  services of Mr: Stevens, a local  tuner,  was  sought   but   when   he   tried  the  instrument he saw that it was   useless  to touch it in the time left him   before  it   would   be   needed.     The   opening  pianoforte duet " Danse   Ukraine" by  Mrs. Sproule and Miss  Irwin   avoided  the sore spot  in   the  instrument and  went off very well.    Miss Daly's opening piece, "Slavonic Song" Chaniinade  was beautifully rendered   and   showed  the wonderful advance she   has   been  making in her musical studies, and lor  the hearty encore she was given, sang  "His Lullaby" by Uarrie Jacobs  Bond,  a very pretty  composition   to  which  she  did full   justice.      Miss   Irwin   of  Princeton who appeared   for  the  first  time .-before   a   Hedley  audience    was  perhaps  more   seriously handicapped  by .the condition of the piano than   all  the others but she  made   the   best  of  Clie situation and a host  of  friends at  the   same   time.    Her   opening  piece  was " Prelude"  by Rachmaninoff and  was given a   hearty ���������encore   to   which  she. responded.    Blessed   with   a good  memory she requires but a. short  time  with the music to memorize  perfectly  the most difficult classical   pieces  and  has the advantage thereafter of giving  all her attention to  expression, which  which is a marked feature of her playing.    This was particularly in evidence  in her rendering of Chopin's "Nocturne  in E Flat " in the second  part.    This  is a piece that the best violin virtuosos  choose to exercise their art  upon  and  in which soulful shading and  expression  count for so  much   that  it has  been  considered almost essentially a  violin number,but Miss Irwin imparted  to it something more than   technique.  Mrs. Brown's first appearance  was  in  ;i two part number  "The Dawn " and  "I Know a Lovely Garden "   in   both  of which she showed that she has  lost  none of her wonderful  art  and  vocal  power.    To the encore she responded  with "Vainka's Song," a wild   rollicking piece which she gave with spirit.  Much as Mrs.   Brown  commands  admiration for her own accomplishment  in vocal music her great success  as   a  teacher calls for even   more  and   this  was   abundantly   exemplified   in   the  extraordinary progress   made   by  her  pupil Miss Daly.    Mrs.  Brown's   main  number   in     the    second    part     was  " Thora" by Stephen  Adams  and  for  the encore gave " Husheeii "  an   Irish  love   song   which   was    one    of    the  prettiest numbers she gave during the  evening.   Her duec "For All Eternity"  by Mascheroni   which she sang  with  Miss Daly shows how  closely she has  been  reproducing her   own   voice  in  that of her pupil.   But while speaking  of   progress,   the   advance   made   by  Billy Daly on the violin was a pleasing  feature   to   his    friends.      His    first  number "Reverie Tristesse"  by  Born-  shein   showed    that   along   with his  technique in which ho is  all  the   time  making marked progress  he  is  gradually acquiring a degree of expression  and greater richness of tone   that is  always    striven    after   by   the   best  players of this instrument of instruments.    His   encore number  for  the  first piece was  " Bouree"  by Handel.  In the second part he gaveMoskowski's  "Serenade"   -and    for    the     encore  " Aubade Provencale"   by  Couperin.  A  very   pretty number too was his  " Nina " by Pergolese and the violin  obligata played for his sister's song  "Absent"  in the first part was particularly enjoyed.    An obligata was  intended for the song   "Elegie " by  Massenet but the piano  trouble prevented tind "Absent" was substituted.  For the vocal duet which was to have  terminated the first part Miss Daly  sang " Shadows" by Carrie Jacobs  Bond and in the second part she also  sang "The Nightingale's Song" by  Nevin. Mrs. Sproule played the accompaniments as well as appearing  with Miss Irwin in a couple of  instrumental duets.

Star, appears to have been a bit. unfortunate  in its strictures upon the operations  and policy of Medley's leading industry  the Hedley Gold Mining Co. Speaking  of Hedley the Star says:  " It is a. one company ca-inp whose  sole aim is to pile tip big dividends  for disbursal in a foreign country  and bleed the town and district  white in doing so. A company with  the wealth of ore that is mined at  Hedley ought to spend some of its  hoardings in developing and smelting, assisting the town, miner and  prospector and helping on the progress so much needed in this new  country. A country that exists for  the sole purpose of breeding foreign  money bugs is not much benefit to  the Similkaineen. With new blood,  new spirit and a progressive policy  the Hedley company would induce  a large population to flow into the  town."  If the same position had been taken  by the Star under previous ownei-  ship and'management of the Nickel  Plate mine it would still have;  been uncalled for and iu a great  measure inconsistent, but is considerably more so now. It is quite true the  profits from the opeiation of the  Nickel Plate mine and works that are  paid out (jiiarteily in dividends go out  of the country, but they til ways did so,  and if u-e allow foreign capital in  British Columbia to develop our  resources (and we have always thought  it was both sought and welcomed) we  can scarcely see where we have any  ritrht to complain or find fault with  other people using the privilege of  doing what they like with their own.  It is dillicult to follow the line of  reasoning in this little scold or to  understand what the writer was frying to get at. If any wrong is being  done the Siniilkameeu valley because  wealth which would otherwise be  lying dormant is now employing labor  and trade, or because, the stock on  which Nickel Plate dividends are paid  is chiefly owned in New York, why  doesn't our cotem. or anyone, else in  the valley who thinks likewise go to  the stock exchange in New York and  buy some of it? The Hedley Gold  Mining Co. is not a close corporation  and its stock is dealt in openly. When  it was a close corporation the Star  had no such strictures as the above  and why should it speak in this tone  now? The grounds of complaint are  neither   reasonable nor  accurate.    If  and'Grand Forks than both the Daly  Reduction Co. and the Hedley Gold  Mining Co. have been with .Hedley 'i  The hospital statement in another  column will serve as an instance and  many more might be enumerated.  Neither do we think that the views  now- expressed by the Star are concurred in by many of the people in  Princeton, for we are sure that many  then- will admit that during the. past  ten years the Hedley company has  been the best friend Princeton has had  and .there are industries in Princeton  that will say they arc so to-day. As  for consistency, sin elyjtheStardoes not  expect us to forget so soon its advocacy  of reciprocity. If American trade,  American money and Americans  themselves w'eie so good then, why  are they and their trade so bad now !J  Some of the Liberal members in the.  House   at    Ottawa .*, refuse, to   follow  the lead of Laiuier, Graham,  Pugsley  and Oliver on  the.  question' of  Canada's share'in empire defence  and   the  German peril.     One  of  the  sturdiest  disclaimers    was   that of  Col.  H. H.  McLean     the     Liberal     member    for  Queens Sunbury, who stated flatly   in  the   presence  of  his   leaders   that  he  believed  the Admiralty .memorandum  meant what  it said, and. there WAS a.  German  peril, and   that   the   wish   of  those in Britain  upon whom the great  question of empire defence devolved,  was an   early 'contribution  of dreadnoughts   by   Canada,    lie   advocated  taking the question out of contentious  politics by   the opposition consenting  to  giving the three dreadnoughts' at  once,   and   thereafter    have   a   joint  committee of   both   sides   arrange   a  permanent   naval   programme   somewhat along   the   lines of the Lattrier  proposition.    Those are* the   views  of  an  apparently good straight  patriot  who  puts  country before   party, and  we doubt very much  whether Borden  himself   would   not   be   prepared   to  endorse tlietn.  fSlocnn Kecord]  The Ledge suggests the. publisher of  the Record as a senator.

The generous coating of snow which  came along early in the winter and  has stayed with, us persistently ever  since has been worth a whole lo,fc in  protecting the .water lines from free/.-,  ing.

Keremeos was well represented in  Hedley on Friday last both at the  hockey match and the concert.  The Gazette has had inquiries from  thecoustas to the present whereabouts  of one, Charles H.

Can any of our readers supply the  desired information ? r  HOCKEY MATCH  Princeton Team Makes a Triumphal  Tour.  Hedley hockeyists  after  winning a  couple of games .from  Keremeos  had  to lower their colors   to a  team .tVoni  Princeton on Friday last.   The* Princeton team went to  Kere.ineos  the .day  before and .played a game  with  Keremeos which they won with a score  of  4 to 2 played in short order after they  got   oft'  the  train  Thursday evening.  Next day. they came   back  to  Hedley  And   the   game   was   played here on  Friday    afternoon.       For    the    first  quarter it was  toughly contested  between   the   teams,   and although  no  goals were scored in that period it was  nevertheless evident   that   Princeton  was having considerably  the best of  the.play anel the game ,\v-is  mostly on  the Hedley goal.    In  fact there  is a  .suspicion among some that the visitors  were   playing   a   waiting   game   and  taking their opponents'  measure  and  that their playing in Keremeos on the  evening before was part of the same  plan, only a bit more so.   At all events  they began to letoutin the next spasm  and played a combination  game  that  left   Hedley    puek-chisers    nowhere.  Only three quarters were played and  in the   last  two   they  had  notched   4  goals   while  Hedley failed   to   score.  The Princeton .bunch  were,a gentlemanly lot of fellows that played good  clean hockey and could  be aggressive  players   without   going   beyond    the  strict rules  of the  g-ime.    Their star  player was Russell  who played   point  but occasionally   made  an  excursion  down the rink in  whirlwind , fashion  and when he did so there was danger.  .1. A. Brown of Kerenieos refereed the  game   and   handed   out even-handed  justice.    He only had one penalty to  award for a minor offence and  it was  a Hedley man who went to the  bench  for three minutes.'   The line-up was  follows :���������  In  Hedley, on  Feb. 1st, to Mr.  Mrs. R. J.

The Pure Food and Industrial  Exposition is being held at the siuiie  time and the two events should interest  the retail trade and through them the  general public.  Winter sports are becoming highly  ���������popular in Hedley. Sunday afternoon  Dick .Tallies'Scrubs faced the puck, at  the local, rink, with Tqwnsends'  Regulars, and.for two hours hockey of  a wild guerilla.species,was waged.,The  game was chiefly a thing of arms,  legs and epithets, with:a puck and an  armful of sticks thrown in for makeweights. From the sidelines the  carnage appeared to be fearful, but the  .casualties wore surprizingly few,-and  the contusions sustained.by the.Scrubs  just of a sufficiently.serious, nature to  be borne with pardonable pride. The  scoring was so heavy that the goal  judges became confused and so.far  have been unable to name the winners;  meanwhile the matter is being settled  by arbitration. The line-up will appear  in another issue.  Using electric current to thaw out a  frozen water .connection beats digging  up frozen ground all to pieces. The  electrician managed to clear out the*,  line on Irene Street, west of Scott  Avenue, in 20 minutes time afcer his  connections were made. Some other  freeze-ups were also rel'eved by the  same means.  Arthur Vance is making steady  progress towards recovery and .ca,n  move about a bit:but.it is slow.

While the object of installing it  was of course for their own protection  the town   will nevertheless .have the  use of it and the  manager wishes all  to know that when a fire occurs any.  where in town, the  one discovering it  should make for the power house at  once and have the engineer in  charge  blow the whistle.    The whistle in  the  mill will also be available for fire  purposes in addition if required, but  it is  not at all likely-it will be needed   with  the   special, fire  whistle   on ...the job.  The, underwriters should take further  notice of this  improvement find  give  ���������the town ...the. benefit of it.   The lack  of . a   propei' alarm   was  the greatest  drawback that there  was  to our fire  protection facilities.and.the  use of the  mill   whistle   for  fire    purposes   was  almost sure to be mistaken if the fire  occurred any way near, the ordinary  time fpriblowing the  whistle.   This is  only another instance of   the  many  advantages the town has had in  sharing in the conveniences  the company  have provided for themselves.  the Canadian, and   Ontario. Governments, and of the  Royal  Society of  panada, but at that of the  Canadian  Mining Institute, an association representative, in a, truly national sense,.of  the milling industry  of this  country.  It is believed, that   this  meeting   will  immensely,benefit mining in the.Dominion.      From     the   educational "and  thu scientific standpoints,, much   is  to  be expected from   the  inlet-change  of  views   on   Canadian   conditions    and  problems,   by*   men   of   international  reputations.    On   purely   commercial  grounds,   the  interest   and   attention  that will   be directed   to  the  mineral  resources and to the opportunities -for  the. investment of capital   in   mining  undeitakings in Canada, in themselves  fully justify the extensive preparations  that are being made and the expense  that is being incurred  in anticipation  of the    event.       Judging   ,from    the  character of the attendance, in the past  almost every civilized, nation   will  be  represented at the Canadian   meeting  by  men   of recognized  eminence,   in-  c tiding ,  distinguished     government  officials, geologists.and mining engineers in consulting practice, geographers  gteat educationalists  and   writers   of  text-books.      Thus    surely    never    a  better,  a  more  effective opportunity  has presented   itself of  providing  for  the wide-spread   dissemination   of authoritative  information  on  Canadian'  resources and potentialities.  On these grounds, a general appeal  for sympathetic co-operation is made  to all classes,and to. the mining community in pai ticular. The Congress  has held many meetings, in other  countries. In all, it has been welcomed  with open arms. That record must be  at least maintained.

KOTHEKHAM,  Holder of Licence  Within the hist twenty or twenty-  five years, the science of geology has  developed in ������ direction that has  brought it into direct unci serviceable  association with those classes of com  inercial enterprise that are dependent  ontengineering. While this is especially true in respect of mining, it applies  almost equally to railroading-, municipal engineering, and and other activities of a like nature. The dependence  of mining on geology is attested, for  example, by, the fact that a geologist  is now invariably..included on the permanent staff of. every mining corporation of importance; and the demand in  recent years for the services of capable  men to occupy..such;positious has been  quite out of, the proportion to the  supply. It is recognized universally  in short that the debt of the mining  industry to geology is enormous, and  the obligation continues to increase  steadily.

Quite a, number of Kerenieos people  journeyed to Hedley on Friday last to  attend the hockey match. Many hud  to return by the train but those who  were able to stay over had the pleasure  of attending Mrs. Brown's concert.

As every  one had been enjoying themselves this  past week there was not much chance  of getting up a scrap here, so he moved  on to Oroville.  ���������John Vader of Penticton came in  last Saturday to spend a-, few weeks  with his parents here.  Special sleigh loads of the W'elby  livery have been busy the latter part  of the week bringing railroad contractors and men .from the C.N.R. at  Lytton, they having completed their  contracts in that section.  The best part of the district  turned  out to the supper given by  Chin   Kee,  the well-known Chinese  merchant, at  the   Central   Hotel.    Last   week   we  announced that this event was to take  place shortly.   Owing to the fact that  the fireworks that had  been  ordered  arrived on Saturday, Chin Kee thought  k best to get busy right away.   Many  were on the train coining from Hedley  and had no notice that Monday was  the day set.    At all events they managed to be present.    The first table sat  nt 7.15 p.ni.   to a  well  laid  out  table  and a most  appetizing  dinner.

Mr. Editor,  Will you kindly 'allow me a short  space in the columns ,of your valued  journal in order that 1. may say a few  words utieiit the; article which appeared in your issue of the 30th' from the.  cpeti of Rev. G. T. McKeir/.ie, in which  he seeks to justify the stand he took  with regard to. the recent essay  contest.        -  As bis article does not in any way.  clear up the situation I feel that', as  as one of the judges in the said contest,  a few words from me would not he  but of place. Unfortunataly it was  impossible for me to be here when the  result of the contest was announced,  but before leaving 1'spent considerable  time on them and found no difficulty  .whatever in reaching .a decision as to  which was the best. Notwithstanding  Mr. McKenzie's remarks that the conclusions were not in accord with the  best New Testament criticism, I. would  be greatly pleased to see the essays in  question submitted to .prominent educationalists iii'id" I feel confident .that  they would endorse, the decision of the  remaining judge and myself.  While. Mr. McKenzie might have  been within'his premises in criticizing  these essays before the Sunday School  I fail to see wherein he can justify his  action in doing so before the public.  His remarks on this occasion were  certainly not in accord with the rules  which are always understood to govern  such announcements.  Thanking you, 'Mi*. 'Editor,   for   the  opportunity ������������������ of ��������� making   public    my  stand in this matter,���������I remain, yours,  '       A. P. Tingley.  Owing to overcrowding of space at  our disposal last week this letter was  unavoidably held over;. As each side  has now had" an* opportunity to be  heard on this /matter' iuicl no good  purpose will be served by continuing  it, the incident had better now be  closed. If the judges were required  by the rules governing the contest to  take doctrinal points .'into consideration in making their - award, Mr.  McKenzie was quite'within his right.  If not, the other judges would appear  to have been right in confining their  field to literary excellence alone.���������Ed.]  FOUND  Office of J. A. Brown  KEREMEOS - '-  B. C.  R. H.
