Martin Burrell, Federal Minister of Agriculture,  brought glad tidings to-night to the  delegates to the twelfth annual' convention of Ontario Association of  Fairs and Exhibitions.  The honorable minister announced  in the course* of a cheerful talk, that  the Dominion.vGovernment proposed  to take aggressive steps in the near  future to co-operate with the province  in the working out of schemes for the  bettermentof .agriculture.  By lifting this basic industry to a  still higher, place, the whole country  would be benefitted. The idea- pleased  the assembled agriculturists mightily,  arid, when Hon. Mr. Burrell resumed  his seat they broke out into enthusiastic cheers, culminating in singing  "He's a jolly good fellow."  Hon. Mr. Burrell left for Ottawa tonight. "Speaking as a Federal Minister of Agriculture, and I may say for  the government, I can' assure you",  said Mr. Burrell, "that we are most  anxious to assist the province in working out schemes for the betterment of  agriculture .with assistance either by  financial aid or in any other way that  may be accepted.  'The government intends taking a  decisive step soon, whereby we may  better co-operate in improving agricultural conditions in this province.  (Applause.)  "The only question is, What is"the  best and wisest way of going about it?  The main reason for any kinel of assistance is to put it in such a form as  still further to stimulate the farmers  in their lines of work."

KINGSTON INSPIRES  CONFIDENCE  (Oroville Gazette)  Geo. J. Gardiner is at work.at Hedley surveying the Kingston group of  claims recently purchased by C. H.  Brooks, and as soon as the necessary  tram anel machinery can be installed  Mr. Brooks will commence active development em the property. The Kingston is one of the best undeveloped  prospects at Hedley, anel promises to  make as valuable a mine as the celebrated Nickel Plate, one of the best  paying mining properties in British  Columbia close at hand. Hedley will  speedily become one of the most important mining camps in the northwest and rapidly grow to a city of  consielcrable size. Mr. Brooks will  make a. mine if there is a mine there  te> oe made.  $2,915 13  Jan. 1, 1912, "to balance, $39.30  The finances of the hospital ball  were partially given in'a previous issue and the donations thereto duly  acknowledged. Since then there have  been further donations of $3.00 from  John Cosgrove; .-��������� $2.00 cash, towards  supper by R. G. Shier anel $2.50 in  supper supplies. Mrs. Sproule also refunded $5.00 of the music fee. The  total cost of the music was $35.00 anel  Mrs. Sproulc's refund on her portion  left it $30.00 in all. It is only fair to  say, however, that there were other  elonations that do not appear as such  as they have no mention in the statement of receipts or expenditures in  connection with the ball because no  account was turned in or charge made  although the service rendered gratuitously contributed materially towards  the good balance left for the hospital.  There was the use of Shatford's hall  for the dance and Fraternity hall for  the supper and considering the length  of time that both halls were in use for  the event and the amount of trouble  occasioned $15.00 apiece would haye  been a moderate charge. Then there  was no charge made for $7.00 worth  of printing supplied.  The total amount appearing from  the statement shows the. balance to  the good for the use of the hospital to  have been $303.35.  L. O. L.

TWO KINDS OF ECONOMY  Monetary Times  A well-known engineer the other  day tolel the engineering students at  Toronto University that one. way to  succeed in their profession was to keep  an accurate record of costs. The man,  he said, who knew how to make one  dollar do the work of two, was the  man who would be engaged by the  capitalist and the financier to supervise big engineering works. This is  true, but the young engineer should  also remember that it is better to  make $1.99 do the work of $2, conserving accuracy anel safety, rather than  save 99 cents, and ultimately see his  grandstand collapse, his bridge fall,  his skyscraper topple,, and his reputation blasted.  BIG FUR CROP  Reached a Million Dollars in ion in B.C.  Vancouver, B. ('., l<Vb. 9.���������The total  fur production of British Columbia  last year was 'worth nearly $1,000,000  according to game warden Bryan  Williams, whose annual report will be  presented to the legislature in a few  days. Some interesting facts an; promised. Bounties of $3 a head were paid  on 3,(500 coyotes in the province last  year, the sale of skins averaging the  hunters about $3.50aho������d in addition.  At the recent sale of furs held iu "Vancouver 1,500 beaver skins were disposed of at an overage of $0. In addition  land otter, wolverine, marten, mink  and silver fox skins were sold to a  total exceeding 11,000.  GRANT FOR THE HOSPITAL  The secretary of the Heelley Hospital has just received a communication  from Dr. Young, the Provincial secretary advising him that the Board's  appeal for aid made through Mr. Shatford had on Mr. Shatford's urgent  representation been granted and the  sum of $1000 hud been appropriated.  The Hospital had not been as low in  funds for some time as they were at  the end of the year and this appropriation will make easier navigation for  the hoard and enable them to make  needed improvements that have had  to stand over for lack of funds. One  necsssnry improvement is alteration  of the operating room so as to obtain  more light, anel there are several  others equally urgent.  GENERAL NEWS  A couple of burglars were caught in  the act of demolishing a safe in the  office of the Brackman <fc Kerr Milling  Co. at New Westminster last week.  Yniir hospital has obtained a grant  of $1000 from the. piovincial government.  The evidence against the men suspected of robbing the bank of Montreal at Westminster, who were captured in the United States may not be  strong enough to secure extradition.  Two Liberal senators Choquette and  Cloran are moving to repeal the naval  bill passed by the laurier government.  They both supported it when the  Liberals were in power.  Greenwood hockeyists elet'eateel the  fast Phoenix team in the international  championship cup at the Rossland  carnival last week.  In no way is the department of agriculture in the B. C. government doing  better and more practical: work to  reach and benefit the farmers, than the  short courses which they are giving tb  the various Farmer's Institutes in this  province. . ,       ". ';...  From now on until the fruit" crop  tor 1912 is gathered in every day will  have cause for vigilance and attention  on the part of the live up-to-date fruitgrower. The winter or very early  spring is the .-Lime. to. do most of the  pruning and begin to fight the fruit  pests. Everybody who buys a fruit  lot and goes in for fruit-growing does  not possess the necessary knowledge  of the art; and the man who shows  him what he ought to do and how to  do it is the best friend he could meet.  To act the part of that friend is the  thing the department of agriculture  has set out to. do.    .  The department are sending out  their experts tlucitlgh the proyince to  meet the. farmers at their institutes  and the commencement for this riding  will be niede at Keremeos'which is the  easiest place to reach for farmers residing; anywhere in.the Similkameen  riding anel where the greater number  of fruit-growers, are centered'.and or-,  chards for illustration. The Keremeos  meeting will be held on Monday and  Tuesday, February 26th and 27th and  the following is the programme:  KEREMEOS  MONDAY  FORENOON  10:30���������Priming   Demonstration, M. S.

The  courses are free to everybody and the  asking of questions is encourageel hy  the lecturers.  Albert Olsen, a Swede, who has been  around Hedley for two or three years,  known as "Speedy", was found dead  in Edmonds'-.barn yesterday hiorning,  where it is thought he had lain down  on his face and smothered to' .death.-.  He was known to have been intoxicated the eveninp- before anel how or  when he got into the barn is not,  known. Just the day.before, he told  he was a widower and had a daughter  19 years old in -Minneapolis,' and before  that little or nothing was know concerning,him.  The Castle Squure Entertainers gave  a-Very'enjoyable performance; in Fraternity hall, on Saturday night and  earned for*....themselves, the right to  rank as one of the good concerns that  have appeared here. They played; to  'a good'house,; the;reserved seats being  practically all taken two days before  they reached town. Their performance was meritorious throughout and  their audience was Well pleased with  the entertainment given them. The?  chorus singing and character representations were the strong features of  their repertoire. The hospital under  whose auspices they 'played had a balance of some $17 to the good after all  expenses were'paid.'.  Messrs. C. H. Crookes and W. Van  Meter are in Spokane this week and it  is expected will make the necessary  arrangements for purchase''.' of the  aerial. tram way. The pla i is anel pro - ,  file had to be prepared by the engineer  and forwarded to them and all this  takes time. There are some people  here who are unreasonable in their  impatience to see a big gang of men  at work on the Kingston. This is  foolish. Mining Companies that operate successfully and understand what  they are doing do not employ men for  the sake of getting a pay-roll but to  elo as economically as possible whatever work they have for the men to  do, aud to employ men before they  are ready for them is a thing they are  not at all likely to do. Work on the  Kingston will go forward as rapidly  as may be consistent with intelligent  profitable work and no faster. A  thorough sampling of the property is  still going on with as many men as  are required for that purpose and  when all is ready to go forward with  the work of putting in the tramway  I the necessary force to elo se> will be  employee!.  MINING  NOTES  STRICTER LIQUOR LAWS  Attorney-General    Introducing    Amendments to Present Act  Victoria. B. C, Feb. 9.--Hon. J. W.  Bowser, attorney general, has given  notice of a bill to anienel the provincial liquor act of 19.10. His object is to  deal in inure drastic fashion in maintaining the standard of road houses  and country hotels and the removal  of licenses from these when they are  found to be houses of assignation and  used for improper purposes or when  interdicts are served thereat.  The Monetary Times roasts Canadian Sunset Oil, a Vancouver concern  that started in to exploit California  oil. The Monetary Times says*"Most  of these Californian oil companies,  have money absorption powers equal  to the water absorption propensities  of a sponge."  Cobalt's ore .shipments are as follows: In 1904 the camp produced 15S  tons, valued at $310,217; in 1005, 2144  tons, valued at $1,437,190; in 190(5, 5,835  tons; in 1907,14.S50 tons; in 190S, 29,300  tons; in 1909,29,941 tons; in 1910, 35,011  tons, in 1911, 25,089 tons.  The Voigt properties on Copper  mountain now under development by  the B. 0. Copper Company are reported to be opening up in most encouraging shape.  Recent assays obtained by Sam-  Spencer from his claims on Whipsaw  creek show unusually high values.  Work is going ahead steadily in the  Apex tunnel which is reported to be-  ne-aring the old workings from the  bottom of the shaft and the results  being obtained are reportetl to he  satisfactory.  The Spokane mining convention begins to-day.  The steady increase in the quantity  of concentrates shipped out from Medley indicates that the* ore is becoming  more heavily mineralized all the lime  and indicates t'urtbei that the Great  Northern's freight receipts fiom this  camp are showing a corresponding  increase.  In all probability .���������mother tube mill  will be added to the present equipment of the Medley Gold Mining Company's stamp mill. The tailings loss  is very small now but with another  tube mill to slime more of the sands it  mav be cut still finer. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE    FEB 15,   1912.

Hon. Price Ellison, that his  budget would be presented to the  House on the 10th brings the end of  session within measurable distance.  While' the session has been unmarked  by any special events it has nevertheless been a busy one and it can perhaps be claimed to show the maximum  of work with the minimum-of talk.  An interesting 'feature of the Kettle  Valley bill now before the Dominion  House is  the  paragraph which asks  power to build a branch  up Twenty-  mile fronia point at or 'near Heelley  on the line to  be constructed   from  Midway to Hedley.   This would look  as if the Kettle Valley people "had,not'  given up  the ielea of having  railway  connection to this particular part of  the valley; and, should  they build, it  is quite probable that instead of building up Twenty-mile from  a point at  or   near   Hedley    they   would.. build  down Twenty-mile' to Hedley.   That  would require very little mileage and  would give them-a feasible route to  contict Hedley with ther line running  out of Sumrnerland.     Of course  there  is also  the lower Okanagan and  the  lower Similkameen  to be considered,  and, whether taken together or singly,  thev offer substantial induceinnt.to a  railway to get in for a share of the im-  niense fruit traffic they will produce.  It would not be a formidable' undertaking for ti railway that is already at  Penticton  to run ii line down to Osoyoos  and  through   the Richter  Pass  over into the lower Similkanieen  and  up the valley through Keremeos  and  Hedley to join their main  line again  at the 'head waters  of Twenty mile.  It remains to   be   seen -whether   the  foregoing programme  or* any portion  of it will come about within a reasonable persoel,   but whether  it eloes  or  not the prospect at all events   will be  a. pleasing one  to contemplate,  in   our  spare moments.

What coulel have been the object of  Sir Wilfriel Laurier and some of the  noisiest of his followers in putting up  such vociferous objection to the government's plan to take the tariff out  of politics is difficult to see. There  could he no no grandstand play or  cheap bid for popularity about it for  popular sentiment would appear to  run strongly iu the opposite direction. An evielonce that the rank and  lile of the opposition had no relish for  the position which their leader was  compelling them to occupy was seen  in the fact that so many of them  shirked the vote and out of a, total  opposition strength in the House of  85 only 52 were on hanel to cast their  votes with the leader.

Jones, local manager of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co., made a  speedy trip over to Grand Forks at  the end of last week. While there he  went through the Granby works and  saw how Granby ores are treated, and  there he met the officials of the Great  Northern who were taking a run over  the line and brought him back Which  enabled him to save a day oh the trip.  W. F. Cameron, who was Vernon's  first -merchant and also Vernon's first  mayor, died last week in a sanitarium  in Guelph, Ont. It was men like him  who made the days of long ago a golden age to look back upon, with its  sturdy honest friendship and square  dealing between man and man. Rest  his ashes, for there were few truer or  better men than Billy Cameron.  The people of Keremeos are petitioning for very needed alterations  and extensions in the telephone system. OnO of the principal ends sought  is the -extension of the line to connect  with the Boundary system. As the  provincial highway is to take that  route there is no reason why the telephone system should not be in advance of it.  Mike Costello informs the Gazette  that several bench placer claims  have been staked dp-Wjri the river for  Vancouver parties. Either Mike was  joshing about it or somebody"else, will  be made to see the josh later on, a la  Vancouver mining, for it is funny that  bench claim staking should be done in  that particular spot. But go to it.  There may be a pot of gold right there  for nil anyone knows to the contrary.  The Gazette acknowledges receipt of  a button badge for the mining convention which opens in Spokane to-day.  The design is apt and besides distinguishing the wearer thereof as belonging in some capacity to the piofes'sion  of mining, will serve as a souvenir of  the event. The centre ot the design is  taken up with a pick and shovel,  doubtless to make the prospector feel  at home. The pick is all right: but as  the shovel is got up on the design of a  farmer's scoop shovel, we fancy we  hear an old time prospector start in to  cuss the man that would expect a  fellow to put in a day's work in an  open cut with tliat sort of weapon.  Some of the local golfers have been  out and found the playing not bad at  all. It is too early to begin fixing up  the holes yet as there is liable to be a  little more winter before the weather  gets down to permanent spring business. There is a gang of vagrant nags  wandering around that,have already  done considerable'lia'rin to the course  and now is the time they can do more  harm in a few days than their hides  are worth. ' If the owners of them  will turn out a little later on with  pick or hoe and fill in the deep hoof  marks they make by sinking in the  ground while the fiostis coming out  it wouldn't be so bad, but as they are  not at all likely to do so the next best  thing would appear to be to set the  dogs on the four-footers.  On Friday night last Hedley masons  had the pleasure of a visit from  Princeson brethern who came down  for the regular monthly meeting. The  visitors were J. Holden, superintendent of the Princeton Coal and Land  Co., and J. F. Logsdon and W. D.  Gorden, engineers for the same company, the latter" two brethern being  members of Hedley Lodge. The party  brought their wives along and had it  been known in advance that they  were coming some provision would  have been made for entertainment of  ^he ladies while their husbands were  otherwise engaged. Keremeos inerii'--  bers of the Lodge were represented by  W. Bro. Cameron and F. J. Saiive.  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  EY:  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

We, the undersigned residents of Keremeos and surrounding  district, do hereby petition the Department of Public Works that the  following alterations be made in the  telephone system, now operating in  the Vale-Cariboo district, as follows:  That the connecting line between  Keremeos and Penticton be made tii  follow the main highway between  these points, and the line which now  connects with Fairview be continued  down the Okanagan valley to Osoyoos  and thence to Bridesville or to connect  up with the telephone system now  operating in the Boundary country.  Now this petition is lying in the post  office and has already been signed by  fifty residents, but there are many  more who believe this change should  be made on account of the heavy traffic between* these points, so kindly  wake up. and realize and then you  won't have need to say what should  have been done.

The concert given by the Ladies Aid  in   the Town   Hall, Keremeos,   was a  decided  success, surpassing anything  ever given by local talent, here before.

Canada's fisheries are claimed to be  the most extensive of any in the  world, Last year the catch amounted  to $30,000,000 of which less than $4,-  000,000 was contributed by the inland  fisheries and all the rest-was from the  sea fisheries.  J. J. Hill is reported to be trying to  obtain control of the Harriman system of railways.  Irish members of parliament who  are home rulers are to be taxed $250  annually for the support of the home  rule campaign fund. Will this promote or dampen their enthusiasm ?  Mexican rebels are again on the war  path and already have captured six  cities from the government.  Sir Dan Mann sees a great future  for New Westminster.  The Countess of Warwick is to receive $1500 each for 25 lectures to be  delivered in the United States and  Canada.  The railway commission at the request of the British Columbia provincial government is to take a hand in  preventing railways from causing fires  in forest areas by their locomotives.  The old Bush Fires Act which has  been carried on the. British Columbia  Statutes for years and was more honored in the breach than in the observance is being repealed* because the  new Forestry Act which was made fo  cover the same ground is calculated to  cover it more effectually.  Hydophohia has broken out virulently among the dogs in Fort William  Ontario, and some deaths have resulted to humans who have been bitten.  Much British Capital is expected to  seek Canadian investment this coming  summer and Lloyd-George's taxation  laws are proving a powerful factor in  sending it over here.  J. A.
