TAFFY FOR THE GAZETTE  P. W. GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER and BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building Princeton  Last week the Gazette made humble  reference to the .death of the late C.  H. Brooks and its an appropriate sentir  ment quoted four lines from Sh-iks-  pear'.sJ������ingXear. -LTlieStar-O-hinking-  the lines were written by the editor  of the Gazette characterized it as  "doggerel" and "vindictive," This is  rich indeed and must be taken as a  very neat but unwilling compliment.  As for the so called "vindictivoness" of  the lines, if the Star editor will get  some one a little more, literary than  himself to find the '"passage for him  he will see that the lines weie spoken  not in anger nor "vindictiveness" but  to convey sentiments of deepest and  tenderest sympathy.  ' Hedlev hockey team  went to Kere-  .      . . - -���������  nieos on Friday last add crossed sticks  with the puck-chasdr.4,. of the fruit-  town, but went dowh to defeat on  what was nominally h- score of 4 to 0,  although they claihi ,that the score  was really 3 to 0. as bhe of the tallies  credited to the winners was an "off-  side" and shouldn't have been allowed.  Keremeos has an almost entirely now  line-up and they can play swell  hockey. With the exception of one  man on their team w'ho was out for  gore, the Kereineos.pkiyers get credit  from Hedley men for playing a clean  game.  ��������� The match was called immediately  after the arrival of the afternoon train,  as the lighting of the? rink was not  bright enough to permit of play after  night-fall, and the time remaining  only permitted the playing of three  fifteen minute periods. In the fiist  period Keremeos obtftined till their  tallies and after that they were pretty  well held down by the Hedley men.  The referee was Bert Russel of Prince  ton and his- decisions were satisfactory  to both sides as they appeared to be  fair. Of course there were things let  pass that shouldn't, but it is a hard  game to referee, especially where one  man is expected to do the whole thing,  for it is no easy task for one man to  watch for rough play and keep track  of till off-side plays at the same time.  Following is the line-up:  Hedley  Pollock  Robinson  Dalton  Townsend  Innis  Miirtin  French  goal  point  cover point-  centre  right wing  left wing  rover  Keremeos  C. Armstrong  Carmichael  R.

After making a false charge against  the editor of the Gazette and  being  called to the proof,   the Star tries  to  sneak out of it by denying that  theie  is a file of the Gazette in that office as  we know there used to be, and by another attempt to lead away from  the  point in  a jumble of blackguarding,  preaching and  vilification.    The Gazette has no  answer   for him in  kind  but is content to allow him a full monopoly, or a full  partnership  with  his  friend Chirk,   in. that sort of thing.  Very well, we are prepared  to accept  the denial regarding the file   when the  editor of thu Star says so ; but to show  that  we are still   wiling  to be proven  guilty if we are guilty, to that end our  files are at  his service.   If he will send  down ii couple of men from Princeton  to examine the files in this office or appoint any two men in Hedley to do so.  everyjfacility will be furnished them to  make the search.    A gentleman when  shownthat he is in error is always willing to admit  the error and express regret; the other* kind of a man has a dif-  erent code of ethics and will not.  THE rRlXCETOX  "MATCH.  Princeton hockey team came down  yesterday and played a game with  Hedley on the local rink. The weather was a bit soft and the ice heavy-bub  a good grime was played notwithstanding. In the first -of the three,twenty  minute periods no goal was scored by  either side. In the closing minute of  the seeord Macdonald scored for Hedley. The third -period'was for blood  and. both did their level best, but  Princeton failed to get one through  while Townsend notched smother for  Hedley and at the end it stood 2 to 0  in Hedley's favor. Etches of Keremeos referred the game and there  and there were no apparent grounds  foi* complaint with what he.did.  The line-up was  Hedley Princeton  French goal Pierson  Horswill point Russell  Dalton cover point   H. McLean  Townsend centre .-Chapman  Innis rover "Waddell  McDonald R. wing McLean  Robinson L. wing Osborne  D. J. Innis of Keremeos was in  town on Tuesday.  Chief Constable Simpson was in  town yesterday and took in tiie  hockey match.  Mr. M. C. Hill who was principal of  bhe Hedley School hist year, is now  teaching on  Queen  Charlotte  Island.  A black cape left in the hall on the  evening of the hospital ball, may be  had by the owner on calling .-it the  Hedley Trading Company's store.  The Hedley Miners and Millmen's  Union sent down Harold Kundson to  Spokane to bring back Lawlcy and they  arrived back in Hedley on Tuesday's  train.  Mr.and Mrs. Horswill had a very  sick baby for a few days last week.  Croup and pneumonia was the cause  of the trouble but the little one is now  getting along finely.  Tom Daly of Keremeos has signed  a contract with manager Bob Brown  to play with Vancouver in the northwestern league. He will report for  practice in the spring.  The sewing machine given away in  the Hedley Trading Company contest  will be delivered to the winner on  Friday 18th. All who have keys will  please bring them in on that date.  .Rev. G. T. McKenzie will take Mr.  Cameron's service, in Hedley on Sunday next. Mr. Cameron goes to Armstrong to attend the presbyeery meeting there early in the week, and  would not be able to get there in time  after taking Sunday service here in  Hedley.  Occasionally the editor is taken to  task by readers who dislike slang and  we regret we have to admit that there  are grounds for complaint;', but in the  future we intend that the blue pencil  will be wielded a little more rigorously  it is bad-enough-in*- con versa tion, -but"  it becomes doubly, nauseating when  it appears in cold type.  Rev. A. H. Cameron exchanged with  Rev. G. T. McKenzie on ** Sunday * last  and took the Hedley service. Illness  of the two months' old baby of Mr. and  Mrs. McKenzie was the reason for the  exchange, as it was undesirable for  him to leave home under the circumstances. We are pleased to learn that  at last report the little one was much  better.  The piano in the Star theatre is helping out the performances. George  Stevens is the artist, who supplies the  music. Last week a change was made  in bhe supply of films and Hedley is on  the same circuit with Princeton instead of each-getting films direct from  Vancouver- The new supply is a  trifle stingy in comparison with the  old, for only four films are given instead of the fi\% which has been the  custom heretofore in Hedley performances. * Many also miss the animated  weekly in the new service and- that'  was mostly considered the moist interesting feature of the exhibition.  Hedley patients are doing well in  the Vancouver hospital. Letters were  received fiom both Mis. Sproule and  Mrs. Dalton by their husbands here  and both are getting on nicely. They  ha.ve been visited by most of the  ladies of the Hedley colony now resident in Vancouver among whom were  mentioned Mrs. L. W. Shatford, Mrs.  Revply.-s Mrs. J. H. Kennedy, Miss  Archibald and others.  The severe weather of the past week  slowed up woik on the dam and part  of the time outside work was at a  standstill, but in the carpenter shop  they were getting ready the forms for  the. piers. A shortness of cement  supply would have kept them back in  any case had the weather been favorable so that after all it is fortunate  that the two things occurred at the  same time. Work began again yesterday morning.  The firm steady winter weather last  week was most favorable for making  ice everywhere except on the streams  which had been covered with such a  generous coating of snow before the  frost came. There was scarcely, an  hour during the day and night that  ice With not being made in the open  and advantage was taken of it to build  up a safe margin in the Hedley rink.  As a. result there is now a thick coating all along that vulnerable north  side which should stand quite a seige  of thitwy weather before it gives out.  The more the. better, for every inch  gained will provide skating that much  longer into the spring.  XV. Silvernail of the G. N. R. train  crew who has had some rathe)' uncomfortable experiences came nearly getting it pretty hard again on Friday  last when the train was moving out of  Hedley. They had been shunting cars  and the last coupling had been made  and the brain in motion, with Silver-  nail still on the side of the track. He  grabbed for the first car that came  along, not noticing that there was no  ladder tip fche side of the car to enable  him to get on top. The train was  then going too fast for him to drop off  and run the chance of catching another that was equipped with.-a ladder,  for if he did he was almost sure to be  left in Hedley. He was left hanging  on to the side of "the car with one  hand nnd one foot, and* no rest in  sight nearer than Bradshaw's. Then ���������  there was the big lock bluff a few hundred yards ahead which left little space  between the side of the car*, and the  rock. Fortunately his absence was at  once noticed by the baggageman who  happened to look out stud seeing the  position he .was in, pulled''the signal  to stop the train and it was not stopped any too'soon. This is the. third  narrow escape Silvernail has had although he is as careful as anyone else  in the crew,, and this should now  break the hoodoo.  FEELING A TRIFLE  UNEASY  But   Trying to  Look  Unconcerned  the  Ex-Minister of Railways Inquires  for Gutelius Report  MINING NOTES  A Boston writer prophesies that  Granby will go to $100 per share.  B. C. Copper spent $275,000 last year  in acquiring .and developing propeities  under option.  The Hidden Creek smelter and parcel post were scheduled to start the  same day���������February 10th.  Mining exports from Spokane are  examining several mining claims in  Greenwood camp.  Owing to a shortage of water the  Rambler mine in the Slocan has shut  down for a month.  In the fight for control of the Utica  mine in the Slocan, Caldwell the local  man won out over his antagonist from  the head of Lake Superior.  O t ta wa, J'an. 27. ���������Ho 11. G. E. G ra h a m  rose in his place in the House yesterday afternoon and asked in a very  quiet tone when the report of the investigation into the construction of  the National Transcontinental Railway would bo down.  "Next week,"said Hon. Frank Cochrane, and the ex-Minister of Railways  looked in no way relieved.  The opposition is not welcoming the  coming of the Gutelius report. Already  it has been intimated that it will  show useless or wasteful expenditure  amounting to more than forty millions,  a blue book brought down yesterday  shows that the total expenditure during the last fiscal year on account of  construction wns $18,729,401.4-1, making the total expenditure on this account from the organization of the  commission, in 1901, to March 31. 1018,  $180,247,152.95.  General opinion about the House is  that the facts revealed by the Gutelius  report will astonish the country, even  though the tremendous cost of the  road has already become more or less  of an old story.  The Hedley Gold Mining Company's  cojil bill these days   is  a  pretty  fierce  item.    Four     teams   are    kept    busy  hauling it from the station,  ami  any  work  requiring    power   that can   be  staved  off until a    more convenient  season, is being shelved.    Among the  postponements is thatof sinking on the  Dickson incline which  is  temporarily  discontinued so  far as  actual sinking  goes, hut there is a certain   amount of  of timbering and fitting up in connection with it that can be done  now  and  this is being attended   to, and in   this  way the demand on power is lessened.  However, it is an ill wind  that  blows  nobody good and  the Princeton   Coal  <fc Land Company and Great Northern  Railway will not object.  Mr. Angus McKinnon sr. is one of  the Fenian Raid veterans who will  benefit by the $100 grant made by the  Federal government. Mr. McKinnon  was not paying any attention to the  matter until he received a letter from  an old neighbour in Nova Scotia who  was under arms with him fit the time,  stating that he had received his and  the''member for the riding forwarded the form of application to Mr McKinnon for completion. The necessary affidavit to prove service was supplied by his old comrade. Mr. McKinnon is now enjoying good health  at the ripe age of S8 and he was a  young man of 35 in that memorable  June of 1866.  METEOROLOGICAL.

This lessens- the chance of the prospector to obtain the needed capital for  him to stay in the hills, and stern  neccs.-ity compels him to turn his  hand to some other work that is less  picrnrious. That mining investors  may change their present custom in  the bonding of claims is not atall likely. The mining industry in bidding  for capital has no option in the matter  and musl be prepared to oiler some of  the same safeguards-to the investor  which industrial enterprises are offering, otherwise the industrial ������������������iili,r-  prises will get the capital while the  mining industry will have to go with  out.  THE PROSPECTOR  WITHIN   HIS   RIGHTS  The disappearance of the old-lime  prospector'from the scene has been remarked in most mining suctions, and  for a time, it was thought to be merely | he has exceeded   either  his  11 is surprising the amount of nonsense which some writers and politician's on both sides of the "water have  contrived to give expression to in connection with the action of Premier  Botha in deporting strike leaders from  South Africa. A* a matter of expediency or of party tactics it was perhaps  impolitic, nnd it may" imperil the existence both of his own gnvernmci.t  and that of his English allies, the present British administration which gave  him the autonomous powers which he  possesses.and which lie has used but  we aie not prepared to say abused, for  we don't believe he has. But to say that  ii*hts  or  ���������temporary- and'he would soon return,  but at'last the milling world is awakening to the fact that those.who forni-  erl.y'followed the hue of the hills have  drifted into-other callings, and that  : thi:; 'character'so. familiar fifteen or  twenty-years .ago, lias gone for good.  That mining owes much to the  prospector needs no further demonstration -than the. concern now felt at  liis-disnppearatice from his old haunts.  So seiious h,-is the situation become  that* we find an influential mining  publication like the Mining and Scientific Press, writing personal letters to  leading men in all .parts of ^ie United  States and Canada asking them to express their views on tl e situation and  give their opinion as to the advisability of state aid for the prospector  or special legislation for his benefit.  This request was taken ��������� seriously by  the men to whom the letteis were  written, and as a result, readers of  that magazine-had the benefit of some  very thoughtful and able articles. Of  course there was difference of opinion  -among them both as to the cause and  the remedy, and even if nothing concrete comes from it in the immediate  future the discussion itself is bound to  prove of benefit.  Also in the British Columbia-Legislature the other day the matter was  brought up by the member for Ross-  bind who outlined some changes in the  regulations in this province that  would remove to some extent some of  the disabilities that are-adversely effecting the prospector. One thing he  pointed out to which he thought the  Legislature should give immediate attention was that of making it easier  to acquire title to formerly crown-  gran ted .mineral lands that had reverted to the. Crown through non-payment of the acreage tax. Why this  should not be granted by tho government is something for which there  seems to be no good reason, for if a  piece of mineral hind was at one time  thought to be good enough to induce  some one to make the outlay necessary  to crown grant, it does  not look  like   good   policy   to   discourage   the J Reckless  Handling of-Powder in  Mines  man who is most likely to discover its : Responsible for Injuries to  merits  from taking  hold again  to see;. Life and Limb  what he can make of it.  his   powers   is   to   make   a  statement  which is not borne  out  by  the  facts.  To argue that  because   the   men   who  were  deported   were  British  subjects  and l hat their rights as such were outraged   when   they    were   forcibly  deported   from  a  British   possession,   is  mere  sentiment and  proves  nothing.  The    complete   .-Liitouomy    given    to  South Afiica leaves no doubt  that the  Premier  had a perfect  right  to   proclaim martial 'law if he   thought  the  circumstances    warranted    such,   and  that they did warrant even so extreme  ;i step as that, is  vouched  for  by  the  representative   of  the    Crown.  Lord  Gladstone.    Once    martial    law    was  pmclaimed he had it   perfect right to  either deport these men   who had convinced him that they were not. only-  strike'leaders  but   conspirators  who  were plotting  revolution, or to ..stand  thain up against a wall to be shot, and  that he chose the. more humane.; course  is evidence   very   much   in   his favor.  Civilians don't know'what martial law  means, bub Botha is a soldier and he  does know.    The. term   '���������inaitial -law"  is altogether a  misnomer for it is  not  a law tit all but it is merely the will of  the commander who may do as he sees  fit.    Martial law and military law are  two different things.    Military law  is  a code just as the civil  law  is a code  and the commander  is as amenable to  it and its  requirements  as the lowest  private in  his command; but in  martial law there is no limit to his  power  and  his right except  his   own    will.  When that  is  the  stale   of the  case,  where is the sense in speculating upon  whether the Imperial   goveinmnt will  intervene to demand from the  South  African government reparation to the  men who were deported?   There is  no  tribunal to which  the South  African  premier   and   his    government    tire  answerable    except    the    electors    of  South Africa and  they  in   their own  good time will  have  to  say  by  their  votes whether he has done well or  ill.  own, but merely owing to the lack of  care   of some   fellow-workman.  This is a matter which unions could  well afford to pay, more attention to  and inaugurate a movement among  themselves to watch all men who act  in it  reckless  way to  endanger  their  own lives and those who have to work  . /  with them.  The wiiter in the Mining and' Scientific Press siiys:  "While so much is-being published  about 'Safety Fiist,' weuld it not be.  well to take some notice of the dangerous and wasteful use of powder in  mines? My owrrexpet ience has taught  me that this is a source of danger that  is not always properly considered. I  will cite one instance that, while it may  seem extreme .to most of those who  may read this, it is nob-so unusual oi  extreme as it may appear at first reading. The instance referu-d to was the.  use of 1(55 sticks of 40% powder in a 70-  ft. drill hole. 1(55 sticks of powder Sin.  long, placed end to end, will make a  total length of 111 ft. Now when 111  feet of li-in. powder is compressed into 70 linear feet the diameter will be  1.414 in. Some of the holes weie loaded to the collar,' and the primers were  placed at aboutXhe centre of the load.  The fuses were cut to have the holes  go in the. proper oider. Now suppose  hole No. 0 goes .at the proper time and  is duly counted, but, unknown to the  miner who is counting the shots, it  blows two feet of the collar fiom No.  8, without disturbing the primer. Although theie may be no missed shots,  yet we. may have more or less powder  that has not been exploded scattered  through the rock pile. If this is hard  rock, which in this particular case it  was, this powder is veiy dangerous to  the shovellers.  In my own experience I have found  at least three-fourths of the. holes are  overloaded, and this applies to soft its  well.as haul rock. A hole, in ordinary  rock should not be loaded over half  full of powder. In very hard rock the  load may be increased to fill two-thirds  of the hole, bub never more. If bhis  load will nob giye good results, then  increase the strength of the powder,  or do better drilling. Miners are apt  to increase the load of powder if they  have a round of holes that fails to  break as they think it should. It. is  seldom that the miner cuts down the  load unless he .is compelled to do so by  the management or is pitying for the  powder himself."  THE BANK.OF  78 Years in Business.

At all events, the '"men are working  without mitts, because they are. perspiring so much, pulling the blocks out  of the river. Oh'Monday enough ice  was brought into town to at least  provide the residents with ice cream  for the summer months. The river  is starting to break over the ice so  there is great need of hurry.  Mrs. James Fleming and two daughters..   Misses  Doris and Alice,   left,for  Greenwood   on  Monday's   train.     At  Greenwood   they hope to  spend a few  days before going on to their home at  "Whitewater,   near   Winnipeg.     Miss  Agnes Fleming   will remain in Keremeos  for at least   a  month   or   two  longer   with  Mrs.   Walter   M.   Frith,  her aunt,   at whose home  they   have  spent  the   past  three  months.     Mrs.  Fleming and her daiis-hlers while here  have made many life long fHends and  it was with .many regrets that we saw  them  leave and  it is  hoped  that at  some future date  we  may  have   the  . pleasure of another visit from them.  It is  with great regret that' we announce the death of little  Bertha Jordan at Oroville last week.    On Friday  the   little girl  was  coasting and   met  with a bad spill in which  she hurt her  head in   the fall.    She  returned home  and told her mother that she had hurt  lier head  and a few minutes  after she  was seized .with convulsions  and passed away.     Mr. and Mrs.'Jordan   and  their little girl were well known here..;  Bertha   was.one of the dearest   little  girls that any father and mother might  be proud of. and why the 'Father of us  all   should  see  fit   to   take   this  dear  child   to him   is not   for   us   to judge.  Mr. and Mrs..Jordan   have our  heartfelt sympathy in   this  their very  sad  bereavement.  Great sport was had  on   the   ice  .-it  the   skating  rink  last Sunday afternoon.    There was a hockey  match between   the   ladies    with   skates   and  hockey sticks, against  the  gentlemen  without skates and brooms as sticks.  Tin: game was full of fun  and  thrills.  The ladies would break  away  with a  great rush,   but  before  they  reached  * the goal would in many cases sit down  and take a  rest.    Anyway  they  won  the game by one goal. After the game  everyone  skated  for a  few    minute*?  before a game was called between five  members of the Hockey team  against  seven others.   The  team  being   more  accustomed to playing  the game, won  Keremeos last Fiiday. The green  and white had it all over with the  whites in speed and combination. R.  H. Cannichcal came back to the good  old game and showed speed and endurance, the lirst goal going to his  credit. This helped the younger  players to get extra courage and go in  ���������and win. Dick Cawston scored the second, and the third fell to his brother  Beach who was playing a line game  and the goal he scored was a splendid  piece, of individual play. Carl Keeler  at ��������� (.'outre worked with a will ahd  played a line game. The fourth goal  which he got he fully deserved.  Cargill Armstrong in goal stopped  many a hardshot when it looked almost certain that Hedley would break  through. After the first few minutes  there was hardly any doubt if Keremeos could hold their speed, would be  the victors. Hedley pulled away time  and again but could not break through  the strong defence. It seemedras if  two'Kerenieos boys were always on the  spot when the Hedley forwards got  through the line. Six minutes in penalties w.-is all that was banded.out by  Referee Russell of Princeton. The  teams lined up as follows.  Keremeos  E. Armstrong  R.   Oiirmicheal  D. Oawston  D. Grainger  G. E. Keeler  B. Cawbton  L. Coleman  Heclley  Goal Pollock  Point     C. P.

Martin  NOTES  Hedley played a fine clean game, but  seemed to lack speed and combination.  H. Towsend worked hard but should  try and keep on the ice and not jump.  All players worked hard every minute they played. There was a good  attendance-at the game and the spectators were given a good game.

W.Stirling, New York; William Carson and  James Carson', Edinburgh,  The bequest to the Canada Presbyterian college is understood to be a  legacy to the foundation to provide a  salary to the principal.  fruit- growers have aired their opinion  as to the cause and also the most active agents tit work spreading it; In  these discussions additional interest  was lent by the inspectors and other experts appointed by the Provincial Government who conveyed much information. At Kelowna it was thoughtby  some that the honey bee which has always been regarded as a strong and  valuable ally of the fruit-grower was  this time working on the other side  by helping to spread the disease. The  conclusion is doubtless reasonable,  but in view of the valuable services  the bee lias always performed in increasing the yield by more thorough  pollinization, it doesn't seem exactly  fair to load him up with loo big a  share of the blame at this stage.  Ltist season for the first time the  fire blight made its appearance at  the south end of Okanagan Lake and  also further down the valley, and it is  not at all unlikely, unless every possible precaution to check its advance  be taken, that it will make its way  over the mountain range to the orchards of the Similkameen some time  during the coming fruit season. The  importation of all nursery stock and  even plants and flowers from pest-  infected disti icts should be guarded  with special care, find any strictness  or restraint employed by those responsible for guarding against the entry  of disease should be accepted with  ready compliance by everybody.  Occasionally, we-understand, dealers  in the valley have remonstrated when"  shipments of fruit coining from the  outside have been held up for due inspection and cases of fruit condemned  and destroyed, but instead of finding  fault with the collector of customs  whose duty it is to see that no .infected  fruit is tdlowed to be distributed for  consumption, he ought to receive the  heartiest thanks.and support. In fact  the greatest thing to be feared is that  lack of time may sometimes prevent  him from making ...his inspection as  thorough its it is desirable it should  be made. \  The valley now has the reputation  of possesing a clean bill of health from  the govern in en t inspector of fruit pest  and there are not many other sections  that. have. Now that the Indian Department has an efficient inspector of  Indian orchards,less danger now exists  of trouble from that source and the Indians are now taking hold of the matter of spraying 1 heir orchards and displaying a zeal in connection therewith that might .well be copied by  some of the whites.  i  ������������������������������������������������������������������*������������������������������������������������������<  SEASONABLE  Seasonable goods for seasonable weather is  what we always aim to have for our customers.

The orchards in the  upper part of the Okanagan Valley  and those along each side of the lake  were the first to suffer, and reports of  the local press showed from time to  time the prevalence of the trouble.  Discussion litis been carried on in the  columns of some of the papers wherein  It is not often an opposition in any  government is in ! a position to say  when en election -may take place to  test public opinion on any question,  but that is the position in which the  present opposition at Ottawa., find  themselves. To make matters still  inoie rosy for tliehi the constituency  is regarded as a safe Liberal seat.  Following is the press despatch telling  of it: '���������'  Ottawti. Feb. ;">. ���������It is stated here  that the resignation of Mr. 0.11, Clarke,  as member for the south riding of Essex, has once again been placed in Sir  Wilfred Lain ier's hands to he accepted  at any.time. Mr. Clarke was elected  in 1011 by a majority that was reduced  from 133 to 201. Shortly after the  election he removed to Alberta and-  entered into a law /partnership in Calgary.  The result of this has been that  South Essex has been unrepresented  through this Parliamentas its member  was in Ottawa but two days last session and has not been here all this session. That South,Essex has received  word that he will not again be the candidate is indicated by the fact that another man litis been named as candidate for the next general election.  It was stated last session that Mr.  Clarke had placed his resignation with  the Liberal leaders!, here to be used at  their discretion aud at various times  they were challenged to open the seat  on their alternative naval policy. This  they stea.dily refused and are apparent  ly as opposed today to taking any  chances in this Western Ontario seat.  According to his friends Mr. Clarke  will not be seen at Ottawa this session  unless private business should bring  him to tho Capital.  J.  General Blacksmith  and Woodworker  J. A.
