(Special Correspondence to the Gazette)  Victoria,.B.C., Felt. 1, 19I3--Slartling  ri'veliitions of unsanitary conditions  surrounding tho supply and dtstribn-  tioiiof milk in various portions of the  province and particularly in the cities  of Now Westminster unci Vancouver,  and in tin* Kamloops distiiet were  brought to light oh Monday, when,  after an investigation covering a  period of six months or mote, the Milk  Commission, consisting of Frederick  J. Goulthard nf New Westminstei, Dr.  Anson Knight, B.S.. of Sardis, and  Dr. A. P. Proctor of Vancouvct,  placed the j osuIt of their reseat dies  before tiie Legislature.  The report pointed out that as ;i  result of application to the mortality  records it had been found that the  death rilte among infants in the province was alai iniiigly high. The  ���������mortality among infautsin the-various  cities 'being as follows :���������Vancouver;  49 out of a total death late of all ages  of 1,719; Victoria, IS out of 617 ; New  Westminster, S out of 50fi ; Kamloops;  IS out of 551 ; Nanai mo, 8 of 272.  Nearly every portion of the province  was yisited by the Commission in the  eOth-se of their investigation and data  was also secured from the larger cities  of Eastern Canada relative to the.  regulations and restrictions in vogue  for controlling the distribution of  milk.  Included in the report which was  very extensive and covered no less  than 77 closely typewritten pages weie  recommendations ,-iiid findings of "the  commission which provided for a more  rigid inspection of imported cattle,  supervision of sanitary methods in  transporting the fluid from place to  place, the restriction 'of impoitation,  particularly in low grade products and  the {appointment; of analysts empowered to'make compulsory tests, as well  as provisions for destroying cattle  infected,with tuberculosis..  At the conclusion of the report a  very startling disclosure was made in  ,-i report which Dr. A. L. McQuarrie,  the medical health officer for the city  of New Westminster had made to the  commission regarding the recent outbreak of scarlet fever in that city.  Dr. McQuarrie's report read as  follows :  "Oh the afternoon of Saturday, Jan.  4th, one case of .scarlatina was report  ed to the. department, on Monday  another case was brought in and on  Tuesday six cases reported, on Wednesday six more. From the latter  date to the 17th instant thirtyfive  sufferers from the disease were  brought in, and from that time to  January 21th only two cases have  broken out.  "On investigation into the ca.t^e of  the epidemic it was found that three  city dealers were supplying the  families affected, with milk secured on  one farm in Surrey.  '��������� On inspecting the particular farm  from whence the supply emanatcdit  was found tliat the proprietor's two  children were in the desquamative  stage of scarlet fever. Quarantine  was immediately made and the morning supply of milk which was just  going but to New Westminster  destroyed.1'  Another important proposed piece  of   legislation     brought     before   the  It had been found necessary to provide  added police piotectipn for localities  where these businesses were being  conducted. It was only right therefore that the proprietors should be  made to bear some, proportion of the  cost. Under the amendment a fiat  rate of $50 per year will be charged on  all pool rooms, iu<place of the rate of  the $5 per table formerly in vogue.  While tranquility pervaded a peaceful session of the house on Tuesday  afternoon tho Hon. Dr. Yotingseoiired  the approval of the members and  canied the second reading of his bill  to amend the Civil Service. Act.  This bill provides for a general increase in the standard, of Civil Service  salaries to the extent of $15 per  mouth, and $5 additional per month  each succeeding year. The act now  in force provides  a salary  of $85  per  month for junior clerks and stenographers enteiing the service, their  salaries being raised $4 monthly eacli  year until a maximum of $75 is reached  Direct as well as merit increase, will  also be made, and if the legislation is  made operative clerks receiving $S5  per month will be given $15 in addition  and a. $G merit increase, bringing  their salaries up to $100 instead of $S5.  In a few brief remarks ,-inont the  amendment before moving its second  reading Hon, Dr. Young pointed mil  Chat in ratio with the high cost of  living the salaries paid in the B.C.  Civil Service were entirely too low,  and the amendment had been consequently drafted with a "view of  placing the government employees on  an equal footing with the civil  servants of the old country.  *5  DIRTY TRICK  That " Delicate Problem in Professional  Ethics and Commercial Expediency"���������  Oh Dear !   Oh Dear !   Oh Dear !  House on Monday was an amendment  F.   A.   Ross   has  a grievance.    The  Nickel Plate has turned out a big mine  with a bright future in plain sight and  Mr. Ross is on record that it was to lie  shut down   in  eighteen   months from  the end of 1907 or  in   two  years  from  that 'date  at the   very   most.      Then  again there have been certain individuals  who  have   had  the  temerity  to  presume  that there  might  be   something outside the limits   penscribed by  Mr. Ross where all commercial values  should have ceased to exist and   they  have     succeeded    . in     showing      up  I'liormous reserves'of pay ore that will  keep the presi tit piant going for long  years   to   come.    Where Nature  and  man conspire to throw a fellow down  iu this rude fashion why shouldn't he  have a grievance ?  At a" recent mining congress in  Spokane Prof. Stewart gave-a. paper  on the microscopic 'examination of  rock sections and Mr. Ross was down  to lead in the discussion on the paper.  All he said about lock sections was  little indeed and the attention he gave  to the subject 'matter dealt with in  the pa per was less. But here is what  he did say.  " In exploratory work especially,  whether of examination prior to purchase or undertaken in the development of ore reserves, the part played,  by microscopic analysis of rock sections is most important. Yet theie  aie instances in -which geological  theories must fail in advance of exploratory work and the discovery of  'the law of the camp.' Such instances  are those in which detached ore  bodies, or shoots, lie in different  planes, or horizons, as they do in  Nickle Plate m'ountuin, Hedley. B. C.  Here, the tilted and contorted sedi-  luentaries are penetrated and parted  along their bedding planes by spurs  and sheets of monzonite that have so  altered and silicified the limestones at  points of contact as entirely to mask  their identity to the  naked eye and-to  to the Pool Rooms Regulation Act, | cause experienced geologists to classify  which stood in the name of the them ns quartzites, by which name  Attorney-General. fc iey   were   known   for  years, before  Mr. Bowsei'pointed out in presenting r ������*k sections were made, just as the  the amendment that whereas the Tnnizonitos were called nude-sites*.,  manner in which luiiny of the pool , Microscopic .analysis showed the.pres-  rooius were being operated in the: ema-of the critical minerals and in-  province   was far  from   satisfactory. ' dicated  deep-seated  action,   resulting'  in the formation of true contact iiietn-  morphic deposits of arsenical pyrites  carrying gold and presenting peculiar  and unique mining and geological  problems as well as a delicate problem  in professional ethics anil commercial  expediency..  "Prior to 1909, when this property  changed hands, there was-but one  known ore-bearing horizon on this  property, nor was any other discovered until some two years later. When,  therefore, this known horizon, or  contact, showed signs of exhaustion  and whuy systematic: surface: prospecting and extensive underground exploration had failed to open up new  ore bodies, a comprehensive plan for  development became necessary and,  owing lo the absence of guiding  indications, such as veins, fissures,  mineralizing dykes, et cetera, the pre-  lininary estimates of the possible cost  of this work ran very high. Pay ore  might occur anywhere- in depth, or  nowhere at all. So far as could be  foreseen it meant a detailed exploration of the entire mountain and the  odds against finding pay ore with a  minimum of work and expense  appeared very great. Moreover, competent geologists had already been  consulted and there seemed to he no  hope of aid either from analogous  reasoning or geological deduction inasmuch as this formation is unique,  according t'> the best authorities.  Consequently, without a reasonably  positive  assurance   of success, which  could    not,   of  course,   be   given,    the  owneis   were   reluctant  to   authorize  the   expenditure,   especially   since   it  had become necessary to  remodel   the  entire plant owing   to   the  di.--appea.r-  ance of free  gold   with  depth.   They  determined,    therefore,    to   sell   at   a  profit on   their  investment   to others  who stood  ready*   to  purchase, on the  showing at that  time; and to take the  very   long   " mining chance'   that remained.    The  new   owneis entered at  once upon the necessary expenditures  for plant improvement'and  develop  mi nt and, ttfier some two years' woik,  when the old wm kings were practically  exhausted,   were    very    fortunate  in  finding another ore-bearing horizon or  contact,  several   hundred   feet below  the lowest of the old workings,-there  by prolonging the life of the   ptoperty  and once more proving   the   fact  that  long odds  sometimes  win out.   Now  theetnical question and the commercial  expediency involved in   this  case, was  this:���������In cases of grave  doubt should  managers advise and encourage heavy  expenditures solely on the basis of the  ' mining   chance,'   thereby   risking  a  totai loss, or should  they advise for  safety and an assured profit?    At first  sight ther? would seem to be   but one  answer to such  a  question, assuming  of course   that   the   first   duty   of   a  manager t" his principals is to protect  theiii from ultimate loss.  " Yet, as every one knows, mine  owners in general more readily forgive  advice that causes heavy loss when  ore cities not materialize than they do  advice that loses them the profit  others may make out of ground they  once owned, notwithstanding the fact  that the percentage of eases under the  first condition is vastly in excess of  that under the second, as the histoiy  of mining conclusively shows.  " It is precisely this peculiarity of  human tiaiuii- that decides in.-iny  examining engineers, mine managers  and geologists in taking long chances  ��������� ���������ii unduly favorable predictions. It is  true that conditions are gradually  changing in this respect as regards  the heavier mining investors. These  men are learning to appreciate conscientious reports and conservative  advice and they value accordingly the  advice of the manager which will protect them from ultimate loss, regardless of future showings, but with the  general investing public it is still as it  always has been; optimism is expected  and demanded and the only unpardonable sin is advice that loses a possible  profit that others realize, no matter  how long the odds.  "To return then to Prof. Stewart's  excellent paper, the aids offered by  rock sections in exploratory work cited  by him would doubtless fail in  formations similar to the one just  described--at least in advance of  exploratory work sufficient to demonstrate the law of the camp if this were  possible, which at present writing and  in this instance appears doubtful "  MET HIS WATERLOO  C. H. Brooks Roughly Handled in  Vancouver Court and Finds Way of  Transgressor Hard.  (Xctv*-Advertiser, Jan. .'list. l!>t*l.)  Mr. C. H. Brooks, a mining stock  vendor, who nas been ad vertising stock  in the Golden Zone mine at Hedley.  B.C.. in Vancouver papers, appeared  yesterday in the Small Debts Court,  when Magistrate Alexander described  bis activities as "oho more effort to  put one/across on the public."  Incidentally the case established the-  right of a newspaper* to reject advertising copy which it considered against  the public interest, notwithstanding  that a contract may have been entered  into to carry a given .amount of  advertising.  The case was brought by the News-  Advertiser against Brooks to recover  the amount of a full. page advertisement which his agents inserted in this  paper on January II. This ndveitise-  menI, was the first of a series of ten.  but after its appealance the management refused to carry any more, because of the extravagant nature of the  claims made and the failure of Brooks  to establish a credit.      'i  Brooks refused to pay the bill, alleging bt each of cmitt.-ret on tho part  of the paper, and alleging that" as the  remainder of the series was not run  tiie advertisement was of no value to  him.  The " News-Advertiser " thereupon  brought suit against him for the  amount of its claim'. ���������"'���������*���������.  Counsel fiir Brooks sought to establish a verbal contract with the ad'vei��������� ,  tising solicitor who made the contract  tliat he was to have thirty days credit.  ���������The coin t, however, rilled first that  the signed contract submitted, clearly  esTablisheil the right of the paper to  payment "oil demand;" and, sec< nd,  that the-paper was free to decline any'  copy of which its management did not  approve. ������������������'-*,.*  On cross-examination. Mr. W. M. D.  Ladner, of Bowset, Reid and Wall-'  bridge, appearing- for .the "News-  Advertiser," justified the ref usal of the  paper to carry Brooks' advertising -by  a grilling inquiry..*  Brooks admitted having been arrested in Boston,'Mass., by U.S. government authorities for fraudulent use of  the mails, of having pleaded guilty in  June 1911, and of having been fined  $2,500.  He admitted being in the grain and  brokerage business in St. Louis, but  denied he had agreed to pay 6 per cent  a month dividends. He remembered  that he had some indictments against  him there, but denied knowing what  it was for, nor would he admit it was  for grand lareney. ���������  He did, however, recall being arrested later in the year for fraudulent, use  of the mails by U.S. authorities and  sentenced to IS months imprisonment.  Did you serve that sentence ? asked  Mr. Ladner.  " No," replied Brooks, " [ went to  Washington, and President Roosevelt  pardoned me. and 1 sent Senator Burton of Kansas .to penitentiary instead."  " As a matter of fact," pursued Air.  Ladner, "was not your impri^miineiit  commuted to a fine of $1500 by President Roosevelt, for turning " rounder"  on Senator Burton ? "  This the witness at first denied, but  finally admitted.  He nt first denied that he had used  an assumed name, but afterwards recalled that he registered at Boston on  one occasion as J. C. Gilmore.  Mr. Ladner then asked the witness  if he was not to-day in contempt of  court in New* York through proceedings on a judgment of $18,000. Heat  first denied that he had ever been  served with papers in this case, but  after a sharp reminder by the court,  he recalled that such was the case.  His hurried depai ture from New  York, he explained, was due to having  his ticket bought.  "This was in January. 1012," said  the court, *' Has it taken you a year to  go back ? "  Brooks' operations in Mexico and at  Oroville, Washington,   were   also   recalled    by   counsel,     who    described  Brooks' methods of those of a get-rich-  t'niitiniiedoii faije Two.

Hoss appearing   in   another   column     will   make  interesting  reading    to all   who    are  conversant with the history of opera-  . tions and development  in   the  Nickel  Piute.    Briefly  suiumari/.fd, Mr. Boss  is practically admitting  tliat some explanation is due. from  him  for having  done bis employers  out of a. valuable  mine because of his  inability to   size  up   the situation    after   about   three  years   as   manager.     But   bis   mana-  geiinl sin was not altogether negative  in character     and its heinoiisness   lay  not  in notknowiiig   lull in   knowing  too iiiuch about it���������in   his  own   mind,  of course.       lie   concocted    a   unique  geological theory  that,the cue body of  tl e Nickel Pint; mine lay in a certain  form  which he variously described   at  different times   as   a   sugar   bowl,   a  berry, dish   and a saucer, and  he  promulgated   this  doctrine   with  all   the  assurance of a. Delphic (delf-ic) oracle.  So obsessed was he   of the sageness  of  that  conclusion, of   his    that  he.   was  ready   to  snap   the   head   olf anyone  who  would  hint   the  advisability  of  seeking values   beyond the bottom 'or  rim   of   his   metaphorical   crockery  ware.  Now   we   regret tiiat  lack of space  prevents    us   taking    up    Mr,   Koss  contentions   analytically paragraph  by par. graph and sentence by sentence for it would make a Jim dandy  theme I'ir 1 xploitation in that particular way. Suffice it to say that he  made a gi eat h.under or series of  blunders here and lie would be much  belter oil" if he would forget it himself  and allow others to do likewise rather  than making sorry attempts to prove  that ttioiig was right at this late date,  We have ireqiifii. iy heard doctors  ma lie much of the loiumyrot that  they call "professional ethics" which  will prevent one doctor from approaching within forty rods of another's paatient or cadaver, and even  lawyers are given to prate about it in  their trade, but to expect a mine  manager to keep away from a piece of  ground where common sense tells him  he should find pay ore because! his  predecessor held peculiar themiec forbidding it, would sin ely be going the  limit. And as for "commercial expediency" if it be "commercially expedient" 11 giit out the [my ore year after  without doing a foot of development  per sk and then advise the owners  to  managers try   some   inexpediency  a 'change.;   What'Mr. Boss has undertaken to   band  out as  statements   of  fact    are   mere  deductions   based    011  supposition     and   if  set side   by  side  with* the real facts   now' fully  proven  it would   make  him, look  like  thirty  cuts.      He. says -.the, present owners  ���������'took   the  long chance"   in , mining.  They, did nothing of the kind.     They  took the option   on   the property  at a  valuation    based   011   Mr.  Ross'  short  vision of the ore in sight at that time,.  They provided themselves, ample time  for.testing   and   went  to  work   with  diamond drills  and   pick  and  shovel,  h;it..declined   the   sugar  bowl., theory,  which   was 'being   thrown   in    gratis,  aiid',in four'months  they had shown  up-'a'quantity   of  ore which Mr. Ross  knew nothing  about    tliat   made   the  consideration  stipulated in the. option  look like Inlying   big silver dollars   for  fifteen   cents   apiece     with   a.   quarter  million dollar mining plant  thrown -in  for  luck; and   this   is  what  Mr. Rft>i-  wo-.ild   have  his  hearers'believe. ��������� whs  "coniniercial expediency"  on his'pni't.  If  this   was   taking "the long chance"  iu milling   then what would the short  chance require?  * Many-others of his remarks  call for  refutation hut lack of space forbids.  We do not wish it to be inferred  tliat * we. regard Mr. Boss incapable.  On the contrary; hi! would be a most  desirable man at the head of some  manufacturing establishment where  cheese-paring������������������econnniy would count,  or as an insurance loss adjuster where  seeing small would be a valuable attribute. And even in mining, if a property were fully proven for many years  a; cad and extraction was all that was  required -'.ie would nicely* fill the bill,  but he was the wrong man for the  Nickel Plate at a time so critical in its  history ; and any man with such a  super-saturation of pessimism in his  make-up becomes an impossibility as  a mine -manager in the transition  period betwrten prospect stage, and  the permanent mine, for of him it may  truly be said:  "He either  fears bis fate   too much,  Or bis desires are small.  Who dares not put it to the touch,  To win or lose it all."  club has all along benefitted by the  generous, assistance:.'of. it's honorary  president from time to time and this  latest evidence of his generous interest  in the game and the welfaie of the  club is bound to bear good fruit in  making golf more popular in Hedley  than ever before.

The executive of the Hedley Golf  Club met on Thursday evening last at  the Hotel Similkaineen to consider the  expressed wishes of some of the members of the club for a dance. A  committee was appointed-to take the  thing iu hand and it is understood  that some time shortly after Easter,  which this year comes early, the event  will come off.  Tickets for Mrs. J. A. Brown's concert are on sale at the City Drugstore.  In addition to most of the talent  formerly appearing in the concert  here Miss Irwin of Princeton will  make her first appearance, before a  Hedley audience, and Mrs. J. A.  Brown and Miss Daly have some new  gems in their repertoire. W. M. Daly  litis also put in faithful practice on the  violin in the past two years and the  audience may look for something  special in his playing on this occasion  '-". A few-months ago a youth with a  rapid flow of words and capacity for  reeling off on unconscionable amount  of gulf in one breath canvassed the  town for a map of B.C. The map. was  said to be then in course of preparation  and hence no sample could be submitted. It was sold on subscription and  the price was to be on a sort of sliding  scale according to the number stib-  cribed for, the maximum to he something like seven dollais and the larger  the number subscribed for the lower  the price would be. The maps were  delivered last week and it is. of course  to be expected that the subscribers  were all tapped for the maximum  price. We have not scam the map but  some of the victims declare that it is  the cheapest kind of an affair, and  would be dear at four bits.  A. 11. Brown, the pioneer metallurgist of the Nickel Piute, who had the  honor and responsibility of working  out the ptobleni-' of ore treatment in  Hedley, is ; now with ; Hudson Bay  mine in Cobalt, which is one of the  very best producers in that?camp. The  Engineering and Mining Journal tells  of an examination of a property which  ho was making in Deloro township  with a view to taking an option for  his company.  Enster is coining so early this year  that Lent has come on us like a thief  in the night. Yesterday was Ash  Wednesday and for a spell of forty  days those who wish to observe the  times and seasons will only have to  fall back a few weeks to pick up again  the good resolution habit they were  supposed to be familiar with at the  beginning of the year.  Do the trappers and collectors of  raw furs ever consider the part the  modern circular house of to-day has  had to do with making the present  extremely high market price of Ani-  eiicai'i raw furs!-1 Does the trapper  and collector realize how this advance  ivi-r the extremely,Iow price of years  ago is maintained by the valuable information the trapper and collector  4i't through the advertising matter  that is mailed out by the large circular  houses? The competition of the large  circular houses created for the collection of' American raw furs, if it were:  to cease, would surely put the profit  of the trapper down oO per cent. It  would cut the profit in half ami possibly the price of American raw furs  would drift back to the days of Astor  andotheis of his kind���������the old-time  buyeis of American raw furs, who  considered a cup of sugar as all a  beaver skin was worth and that was  all they paid for it. The sale of furs,  so bought, laid the foundation of these  vast fortunes.  Mr. A. B. Shuber,*-, president of A.  B. Shubert, Inc., Chicago, U.S.A., one  of the very few expert bulla lo robe  buyers of the old school now living  tells us " that in the early days $2 to  .$2.50 average was considered a top  price for buffalo robes. In Montana,  beaver were sold by the truck load at  $1.51) per pound, for parchment handled skins (about $2 to $2.75 each) and  the Montana and Canadian wolf sold  for 50c to 75c average and so on down  the list of American raw furs."  The circular house by sending out  price lists and through advertising  matter created the competition of "today���������competition created the advance  prices of American raw furs of to day.  The large circular houses let the light  in on the real value of American raw  furs and cut down the excess of profits  of the distributer of raw furs and  ���������caused the . distributer . to pay real  value and real money for raw furs and  of course the trader with his' string of  beads, barrel of sugar and chest of tea  had to get out of the game or do the  I in- business in a modern way.   ,  The collection of American raw furs,  on some articles, is cme half of what it  was years ago. There is a shortage in  most every article. This was brought  about by the extremely high prices  that have been paid in the last few  years. It encouraged men to trap furs.  A good trapper can make better wages  on the trap line than he can by hiring  out. It is really wonderful what progress has been made in thefur business  and the tiemendous advance iii price.  ���������VrOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that by an  x> Order made by His Honor D. Murphy.

Simpson of .Kaslo.  Hockey is getting brisk in the  valley. Princeton plays in Keaemeos  to-day and here to-morrow.  The Granby Company have let contracts for $1,20(1,01X1 in connection with  the building of their smelter on  Observatory Inlet.  The former erroneous impression  that forest reserves are areas set apart  by the government to be reserved from  use and development is giving way to  the correct view that they are for the  general use of the public.  The Dominion Forestry Branch is  desirous of spreading this idea, abroad,  and with this end in view has inaugurated the policy of surveying summer  resort lots around convenient Lakes in  forest reserves. These lots are of two  kinds, viz., building lots and camping  lots, so that the demands of both  cottagers and campers may be met.  Such lots are leased to the public for a  term of years at a very nominal figure.  It is hoped that in this way a start  may be made iu bringing to the public  a realization of the opportunities and  advantages which the reservation of  these great areas of the public domain  affords the countiy at large.  A good example of such a resort is  seen in British Columbia where a site  has been laid out at Trout Lake, in the  Long Lake forest reserve. This  reserve is situated in the Kamloops  district of the railway belt.  Trout Lake, at an altitude of 1,100  feet, is an ideal retreat foi the residents of the towns and cities of the  dry belt. Here they may escape, the  oppressive heat and drought of the  summer season, and at the same  time  The history of thousands of policies  on the above plan shows that it has  cost less than four dollars per year to  carry a policy of one thousand dollars.  If you doubt this call on the local representative and see the history ol  one policy for 20 years; then ask yourself whether yon know of any other  concern whether insurance company  or benevolent society that can show a  similar recoid.  mmiri^jiviumtltuMniuimiMHUUivMUiuilllltm  OPENING    UF*  Goods ares arriving1 every clay and already  some nice lines are on display.  2.0th Century Clothing W.

The understanding who that if one  'thousand names in B.C. could be got  the, price would be $7.50 and if more  added than that the price would drop  accordingly. Lately H. B. Fleming,  partner of the aforesaid gentleman,  came to deliver the goods, and si range  to say out of   this  vast Pi ovince, had  ��������� the nerve to say, they had within a  few of tin; thousand mark and as your  name is down, with your own signature, $7.HO please. Does this not look  queer, that one man travelling over  the province should only get that  many names.  Tliir Twedtlle Auto put in its appearance on Friday last, after a. couple of  weeks' lay off.  D. J. Innis drove to Naratnala Monday on business. He has two four-  horse teams working for the K.V.R.  contractors.  Mrs. George Sproule, Miss French,  Miss Bradshaw of Hedley and Miss  Irwin of Princeton have been spending  a. few pleasant days as the guests of  Mrs. J. A. Brown.  George Emory, our genial station  agent, was taken sick last Saturday  and hatl to discontinue work. He is  feeling better now, and although he  should not be out of the house, he. is  again plugging at Jim Hill's business.  The telegraph business was partly  kept up dining his absence by the  Hedley agent, who jumped in to help  out, receiving messages and relaying  them to the Duly Reduction Co., who  in turn relayed to Hedley and Keremeos government telephone offk >s,  ami from these places they were despatched north or west as the case may  be. The kindness shown, especially  by the/ Hedlay relayers, made it so  tliat the public's telegrams were  delayed but very little.  C.   JE.

The '-sec-rind quarter was  strenuously.; contested, both teams  were, working hard but it could be  seen that Kerenieos was losing ice ami  only managed to hold ofT the visitors  until half time. The third quarter  was a .calamity for the .home, team,  resulting in three more-goals being  added by the Hedley sextette. Keru-  nieos "managed to notch a. goal this  cjiiarterowing to the visitors custodian  getting rattled and putting the puck  through his own goal.   The Inst period  showed Hedley to advantage, their  forwards breaking through continually and had it not been for the good  goal-keeping of Beach Onwston the  score would have been heavier.  Kerenieos worked hard but seemed to  lose conl rol of the puck at shooting  distance.
