Inqiiii-y-at the office of the Daly Reduction Co. on Monday night as to the  local situation  on the*' labor question,  elicited the very-welcome information  that-wic conference between the general manager and a committee of the  miners who waited on him,  had been  satisfactory and pointed to an agreement to continue work after Jan. 1st.  '   The opinion expressed by the Gazette  two weeks ago  to the effect that the  men had reason  to  be confident and  were confident' that they could expect  fair treatment from the management,'  was amply borne,out by the satisfactory character of the meeting on Monday evening,  for the new wage scale  posted was in no single case  less than  that paid in the Boundary and in some  instances was from 11 to 15 per cent,  in advance of the wage paid there under latest agreement,  on   which  the  Granby employees resumed work.  The only thing therefore which can  now put- a stop to operations in this  camp is the weather, which, if too severe, might interfere with the efficient  working of the flume. So far as water-  supply goes there is ample  to keep   immediately, as the licensee. has  21  (Victoria Colonist".)  A reserve has been placed on all the  uns-taked timber of British Columbia  by the provincial government. The  order-in-council bringing this into'effect was signed yesterday at a meeting  of the provincial executive, though it  has been under consideration for some  time. The decision is in order that  the forest wealth of the province may  be conserved and to pi-event timber being staked merely for speculative purposes. The action of the government  will be hailed generally with approval.  In all some 0,500,000 acres of timber  land in the province have been staked  and the revenue from this for the last  fiscal year amounted to over $1,275,000.  Though the area of the total timber  lands of the province is estimated at  over 182,000,000 acres this is regarded,  as an excessive figure and at all events  that which has been taken up is either  the most accessible or the most valuable.

PREMIER'S STATEMENT.  Premier McBride, on being interviewed upon the announcement, said  that he felt satisfied that when the  chief commissioner of lands and works  presented his views to the people of  British 'Columbia there would not be  two* opinions offered as to the wisdom  of the move. The only eiid sought by  the government was What was best in  the public interest. * They had demonstrated this in connection with the  other resources of the province in the  past. Their chief endeavor in the past  had been that the resources of the,  province should make a proper return  to the provincial treasury. Despite the  reckless charges' of tlie!, government's  political opponents, they have always  been successfully answered and the  government stands as it has always  stood for the conservation of the natural resources of the Pacific province  for the people of that province. He  was satisfied that lumbermen as well  as laymen would concur in the action  of the government.  In view'of the depletion of the timber resource's of eastern Canada as well  as the eastern and southern States,  the government had regarded -their  present   mow  as  advisable.      Ample  Phoenix, Dec. 20.���������The best possible  Christmas present that could have  come to the people of the Boundary  was delivered Tuesday night when the  Grand Forks Smelternien's Union and  Phoenix Miners' Union decided to return to work at once at the mines and  smelting works of the Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company.  The men started in at the Granby  mines in this en nip to'day and also at  the smelter. In the course of a week  or two the whole complement should  be at work, somewhere between .800  and 1000 employees.  On Tuesday afternoon a special  meeting of the Stnelternien's Union  was held at Grant! Forks and a new  vote taken on whether the' new wage  scale should be accepted, it having  been turned down last week. All hut  30 voted to accept it, according to the  report, and then the vote was made  unanimous.  In the evening a special meeting of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. S was held  here. A week ago this onion gave a  majority vote'to accept the new scale, ..  and at Tuesday night's meeting, after  hearing from the Grand Forks Union,  the Phoenix Union also decitled to resume--work at once.'  For the last two weeks, following  the effort of the special committee of  the Phoenix Board of Trade to get  the management of the Granby Company and the employees together on  the wage scale posted at the mines  and siiielter nearly three weeks ago,  there have been a'��������� number of conferences between Mr. A. B. W. Hodges,  the local manager pf the Granby Company, and a committee of the Union.  Thus the entire matter has been amicably settled.  The scale accepted is about 50 cents  per day lower than that prevailing  when the mines closed on November  11, on acconnt of the low price of copper and high operating costs. It is a  certainty that the Granby will operate  at its fullest capacity of 3000 tons of  ore shipped arid siiiel ted daily, as only  on this scale can the company make  even a moderate profit on 12 or 13 cent  copper.  " The announcement is the cause of  greatest satisfaction in Phoenix and  the Boundary generally.  timber had been staked to supply the  mills of the province for years to come.  WILL  PROTECT   FORESTS.  With regard to the question of forest  protection, Premier McBride stated  that the intention of the chief commissioner'was to take the utmost precautions to have the forests as thoroughly  protected a* was possible.  The decision of the government has  been taken only after the most careful considerations As previously announced in the Colonist, the chief  commissioner has been in consultation  for months past with the officials connected with the timber department.  With the richest timber resources in  the world, British Columbia has hitherto had the most generous timber  regulations prevailing anywhere. Revenue was -necessary for the development of the province and out of .the  revenue which largely was derived  from its timber, the present government of British Columbia has placed  the province financially upon its legs,  and the vast areas of timber as yefc  untouched by the timber merchant,  speculator or otherwise is preserved  for British Columbians.  Interested persons after considering  the resolution of the executive express  the belief that all stakings. made prior  to date of order will not he affected by  the action of the. government. No title  can he. secured to timber staked after. THE  HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   JANUARY 2,   1908.  ���������=**?- *  i*i&  Ifeties  ������rM<  and  Similkameen. Advertiser.

Rarely on such  occasions is the contrast found  to be so marked  as  in this instance.    A year ago  iness and industrial  a cloud was in sight,  plentiful and wages  these  have   ever   been   looked  upon as propitious signs on the  prosperity weather gauge. Qniy  a few. of the  wiser  heads  saw  evidences of change,  or if they  saw it, had courage to pass the  word for the shortening of sail,  but from  all sides these were  called croakers and told to shut  their heads.   Instead  of shortening,  "Seaward  the opal snils were set"  and the  kindly -warnings,  like  the cry of the sand-pipers, were  in   too   many    cases   left   1111-  heeeded, for  "The sand-pipers trip on the glassy beach"  Ready to mount and fly;  Whenever a ripple roaches their feet  They rise with a timorous cry.  ���������"Take care' they pipe, "take care, take care  For this is the  treacherous main,  And though you may sail so grandly out  Von may never come home again."  Whether J. J..Hill and others  who counselled caution and retrench u;ieiit to meet the coming  storm, believed themselves that  it would break so soon is doubtful, and few of them expected  that hel'oro the bells had tolled  out the last hours of H107, old  time-honored financial institutions would have had to. close  their doors or'that 190,000 operatives from various factories  in the United States .would be  walking the streets out of employment within three mouths  after the storm broke, and that  this Christmas season Avould  find them among the ranks of  the unemployed.  While no great war marked  the year 1907 like' some that  have occurred during the past  decade, the year will not go  down in history as one of the  uneventful ones. There are other struggles that may be fought  besides those between armed  forces in the field. Other kinds  of rebellion against constituted  authority that may raise their  heads besides those whicli reddened the sands of South Amer-  j ican republics or in Morocco,  j are often subjects for milder  j arbitrament and in the court  j records of this and other count-  j tries some noted cases have held  /public attention.  Tlie year 1ms been fraught  with danger to the travelling  public, many serious accidents  by boat and rail having occ'ured,  arid in our own country "the collapse of the Quebec bridge will  be sufficient in itself to make  1907 a landmark in the annals  of public disaster.  In the field of invention and  discovery the year has been  a  notable    one���������not   perhaps oil  account of achievements fully  completed but  rather for important steps made in advance  in the  working out- of important   problems   that   have   required   lengthened   periods   to  solve.    Two in particular  have  served to bring the solution of ,  the   flying machine   in   sight.  These are Brennan's  gyroscope  and Alexander Graham Bell's  aeroplane    experiments.     The  discovery of color photography  too is a   notable event in scientific research.     From  the vantage ground  thus   gained   the  year 1908 should  witness  still  greater     advancement     along  these  lines, and to the   babies  born in 1908"homage will be due  when it isr considered the opportunity .which..they., will enjoy in years to come in the realization of inventions and discoveries that to'-lis'are but day  dreams.

The old age pension  scheme  which elicited so  much  discussion  a while  ago is *' going to.  come before the House of Commons in Ottawa during the present session but in a very.modified form.     In fact the scheme  being presented to the House is  so far modified  that it cannot  be called an old age pension at  all but rather an old age amiu-r  ity which is to be purchased by  the recipient by paying $13 per  annum from the" age of twenty  years.    This at the age of sixty  years is. to be'paid back to  him  in an annual payment of $120,  or if he waits-until he  is  sixty-  five he will receive $200 per annum.   In this way there is very  little    difference   between  this  government   scheme   and   the  terms upon which life annuities  are being furnished by  the  insurance'companies.     One feature in its favor is that there is  government guarantee to carry  out the terms of agreement, for  if any deficiency should occur  to render the fund provided biannual premiums insufficient  to meet the annuities to be paid  out, the credit of the country  is pledged to make good the deficiency. No commissions are  to be paid for securing business  under the scheme, the government undertaking to administer the scheme without charge  to annuitants. Altogether it  seems at first glance a commendable scheme, and if taken advantage of, should in the future  save many an old man and old  woman from ending their days  in houses of refuge.

Many of the orphans who  partook were not genuine,'permanent  orphans. Exiles might fit bettor as a  name, for. most of them "who were  there were merely exiled temporarily  from homes elsewhere, iincl others  were temporarily bereft of their  spouses, who had gone to spend Christmas at their homos. The common tie  of forsakenness led them to club together for a $2.00 a plate dinner. Music was plentifully interspersed with  the proceedings.  Christinas Day passed off quietly in  Hedley considering the number of men  ab work between the mine aud the  mill, and the men employed on V. V.  & E.��������� construction. Only one man  got sufficiently obstreperous to be  taken in custody, and that was on  Christmas eve. He was a Swede from  the construction camp, whose liquor  showed itself in a burning desire to  reduce hotel glassware into the maximum number of pieces. In the morning he was sober and penitent, and altogether a decent sort of fellow. As  the constable didn't want to deprive  him of his Christinas, he requested a  hearing of the ease early in the day,  which was given and the man released  on the payment of a small fine,  amounting, with costs, to $7.50  A letter has been received from Rev.

The Hotel Hamill which has been  the only licensed house in Beavevdell  for the past seven years, was completely destroyed by fire on the.morning of  the 22nd.  -Thos.  McAuley,  who   has had tho  building leased for the past four years  was the first to   discover   the   fire.  About 3 a. in.  he was awakened by  the breaking of glass in the windows,  which  showed   the.'   great   headway  which the fire had attained, and left  no* hope of saving  the   building.    He  awakened A. J.  Whoatley,  who was  the only other occupant of the   building that night,   aiid rushing back to  his own room was only able to recover  his watch when he had  to leave  the  building.   The fire originated at the  back of the building and was supposed  to   have   been   caused   by  the   pipes  of   the   kitchen   stove   taking   fire,  and in less than an hour had eaten its  way to the front, which,  fortunately,  fell back in.   Ab one stage the store  was   in.   great,  danger,   the windows  were cracked, and pitch from the lumber was running down  the front of  the. building.  The hotel was built in the summer  of 1901, by contractor Wilfrid Cook-  son for John Hamill of Armstrong,  brother-in-law of Thos. McAuley.  The building was a two storey frame  structure large and sufficiently commodious to serve the wants of a much  larger place.  iaas������.-i^icses=������'~-~-i!
