Superintendent Cunningham went with a buggy to bring' him  in, and shortly after he was brought  in he died.. No one knows exactly how  it happened, but the general belief is  that a spring seat which he hud.fasten-  ed on with wire had let him drop' and  in falling he had received the injury  which caused his death.

The Douglas Lake Cattle Company  has suffered he*avy losses in recent  months, and had offered two thousand  dollars reward for the capture of the  thief. The company claims to have  lost two thousand cattle.  At the preliminary, hearing he was  released on bail, but failed to show up  at the time required, and warrant has  been issued to arrest him, on sight.  Descriptions were wired to local constables and to stage drivers to enable  them to identify him.  NEW MAIL CONTRACTS  The daily mail service to Keremeos  via V. V.''& E. began on Monday and  notices are out asking tenders to be  sent in on March 20th for carrying the  mail daily to Hedley, also for a triweekly service, between Penticton and  Keremeos.  The contract for .the daily service  from Keremeos to Hedley calls for  leaving there at .1 o'clock and reaching Hedley in four hours, a distance  of 20 miles on a road up the valley, and  the tri-weekly from Penticton to Keremeos requires them to leave Penticton at 7 a. i.u. and make Keremeos at  12, or five hours for 35 miles on a road  which leads over a mountain range.  M. J. HENRY,  3010 Westminster Road,      Vancouver.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., left his  legislative duties at Victoria long  enough to take a run up to Penticton  onnrgent private business. He came  into Penticton by Friday night's boat  and went out again on Saturday morning. The estimates are to be brought  down this week and that is always a  feature in the session that absorbs his  deepest interest.  and commerce,  and it was its duty to  prosecute the inquiry.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite made a  stormy speech, in which he alleged  "that the eight hour law and the rules  for the examination of miners were  being constantly violated in the various mines, and that the government  was deceiving the house in the statistics presented.  The Premier checked .him, saying  that he gave the house the statements  received-fronvthe inspectors, which he  had every reason to believe correct.  Mr. Oliver's amendment was defeated, and Dr. McGuire's motion carried  on a party vote,- the Socialists voting  withthe government.  Mr. Henderson criticised the University Bill as premature, and said that  the institution would be 'too much  under government control. The Bill  passed second readingwithoutdivision.  The Railway Committee increased  the capitalization of the Vancouver-  Nicola RailwayCompany from one to  five million dollars, as the first amount  was considered quite insufficient. It  also cut out that portion of the bill  granting the compauy the right to  generate electricity for its own use,  but Mr. Stuart' Livingston, who appeared for the company, was told he  could make a separate application under the Water Clauses Act.  The Corbin bill for the East Kootenay Railway was approved by the  committee, which demanded, however,  that he pay a $25,000 bond in three  months for the "completion of twelve  miles within twelve months. . The bill  has still to come before the house.  The Coal Tax Bill passed its third  reading.  On Tuesday, 11th, the Lieutenant-  governor gave his assent to the Natal  Bill, which is now the law in British  Columbia, and already the attorney-  general has officer*- stationed ready to  enforce it while it is law; and disallowance by the Dominion government is  the only thing which will cause them  to be called off.  The Natal Bill was the first measure  to which assent was asked, and it was  granted without a word, His Honor  merely bowing his acquiescence.  Other measures to which assent was  given are:  An act to amend the Oaths Act.  An act to regulate the purchase, sale  and transfer of stocks of goods in bulk.  An act to amend the Summary Convictions Act.  An act to amend the Farmers' Institutes and Co-operation Act.  An act to amend the Revenue Act.  An act regarding a certificate issued  to the Greenwood  City Waterworks  Company,  under the provisions of the  Water Clauses Consolidation Act, 1897.  An act to amend the Coal Tax Act,  1000.  An act to amend  the Master and  Servant Act Amendment Act, 1902.  An act to authorize the grant of certain lands to the corporation of the  As evidence that steady progress is  being inade on the railway grades,.the  working force is gradually drawing  away from the Keremeos end and  bunching up more thickly between  Ashriola creek and Hedley.' Everything is-finished now for five miles out  of Keremeos, and since the removal of  No. 1 camp, which took place last  week, Keremeos is now almost out of  it so far as construction is concerned.  The point across the river where the  steam shovel is at. work is in a gravel  bank a little above Alexis' allotment.  One of Lane's camp's has been moved  up on the other side the river almost  opposite Frank Thornton's and there  is another party of subs, working between, them and Ashnola creek.  .- On this side of the river Budd, who  has considerable of his work done on  the north end of Brushy Botton, is also starting at the lower end.  . A party of ten Swedes started in on  Saturday morning in the gravel cut  just at the north end of Brushy Bottom, and will run in on it far enough  to make a breast* sufficiently deep for  the steam shovel to work to*.  At the Sbelder ranch,, also, a commencement has been made, so that T.  Bradshaw has them closing in on either side of him. -The Dagoes at Charlie  Allison's have already a long cut and a  long fill made, while on the plateau  beyond Squakim's one party of subs,  will complete this week, and the rest  of the distance from there to Hedley  may be said to be practically covered  and many of the gangs of station men  who began work in November last will  from now on.be finishing up their contracts from week to week and will  either be taking new contracts on unfinished portions or pulling out.  "The various gangs of station men  who make their headquarters at No. 2  camp are making better progress  every week.  Again the; Gazette affirms its belief  that those of weak faith���������the murmer-  ers���������are away out on their calculations  when they say that it will take until  fall to complete to Hedley at present  rate of going.

What promised to be one of the  keenest fights ever seen in the. house  began when Mr. Ross moved the second reading of the bill to incorporate  the Eastern British Columbia. Railway  Company. This is known as the "Corbin Bill," and was strongly opposed in  committee by the South-East Kootenay Company, which holds a charter  for the same route along Michel creek  from the Crow's Nest railway.  Mr. Ross said that the Bill involved  the principle as to whether the province was to have free trade in railways  or not, and he hoped that it would  pass.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite attacked the  Bill as the attempt of a monopolist to  squeeze out a smaller company.  Mr. MoPhillips moved the adjournment of the debate.  . Dr. McGuire moved the second reading of the Bill to enlarge the powers  of the Dominion Trust Company. It  passed unopposed.  Mr. Henderson proposed a whole  sheaf of amendments, but very few  changes were made.  About half the Bill was finished  when the House rose.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite gives notice  of a resolution asking the Imperial  government to appoint a Royal Commission to enquire into the dispute  between the Dominion and Province  re the immigration laws.  ���������     ECONOMIC GEOLOGY.  Camp Hedley up to date is entirely  a gold producer, though it gives promise of some copper'later on.  The ore deposits belong to tho class  known as contact metainorphic deposits, that is to say, deposits thai occur as  the result of metamorphisin o: sedimentary rocks by igneous int.-u.iions.  The principal ore mineral i-, .irseno-  pyritei and the deposits are unique in  the respect that arsenopyrite has never  hitherto been found in mi--.Ii proportions to the other sulphides i;i contact  deposits of this kirid_  The ore bodies lie in the. sedimentary  rocks and particularly in the so.cond  division of the section* already mentioned. The large emotive maws of  monzonite lying nearly in the. ./.'.eritre  of the camp has itself been the cause  of intense contact metamorphisin in  the sediments that it outs. Moreover the large number of dikes and  sheets of andesite which had their  source in the monzonite are also responsible for a great deal of local, meta-  morphism. It is along the contact of  these igneous rocks and in the zone of  contact metamorphism that ore bodies  have been found. Primarily these ig- .  neous rocks have been responsible for  the introduction of the values, but  other causes have been instrumental  in concentrating these, values to render them economically important.  The granite is not important in , this  connection, while all the dikes have  not been sufficiently studied to justify  an opinion as to what influence they  have exerted in the formation of ore  bodies.  . The more acid variety of monzonite,  and the sheets which it gives off, have  caused, as a rule, the most intense  contact metamorphisin in the intruded  rocks, and apparently the payable deposits are more generally associated  with this variety.  Tlie-spbere of influence of the monzonite core with its dikes and sheets  covers the whole camp, but the action  becomes feebler at a distance. Where  the sediments have felt the direct influence of the mass the alteration has  been extreme, aud whole areas of what  were originally calcareous rocks have  been altered to garnetite.  The zone of metaniorphisiu in the  sediments varies largely with their  composition and the angle at which  they are cut. The calcareous rocks  lend themselves more readily to metamorphism than the siliceous or argillaceous rocks. They are also more  congenial for the formation of ores.  Both in the Nickel Plate and Sunny-  side mines the ore bodies lie in what  were originally limestones, the. Nickel  Plate stratum having been more impure than the Sunnyside.  The contact metainorphic minerals,  developed in the sediments are garnet,  epidote, calcite, -pyroxene and actino-  lite, and with these are associated as  ore minerals arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite,  chalcopyrite, pyrite and sphalerite.  (The association of the oxides with the  sulphides shows that they must have  crystallized out under considerable  pressure). Irregular bodies of hard  cherty rock also occur near the contact, and probably owe their origin to  an introduction of silica from the igneous rock.  Though the gold is always associated  with the arsenopyrite, a great deal of  arsenopyrite occurs scattered through  the metamorphosed rock in which very  little gold is found. It is almost impossible to tell, except-by assay, what  the value of the ore will be, for it all  Continued on Page Four. THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   FEBRUARY 20, 1908.

'Ross,.'manager of the-Daly Reduction Co..' of'this, town, sent a.  letter to.the Mining and Scientific Press on the Lemieux Act  in  answer to    the   article    by  Prof. Elliott, of Harvard, which  appeared in tlie December number of MoCi tire's.!   The  manner  in which  Prof.  Elliott treated  the subject  was  academic  and  altruistic and. not calculated  to  appeal to employers, to whom  only the practical side  could be  of any real interest..  The proof  of the pudding,  after all.  is  in  the  eating;  and   employers  in  the mining industry in this province  who  came   through  the  strenuous times  which extended over the period from June  1907 until  January. 1908, have  had  no  reason  to admire the  qualifications of Irion. -JRodolphe  Lemieux as a legislative  chef.  The man best qualified to judge  how the  pudding tastes is  the  one who has either partaken of  it or been  brought sufficiently  close in contact to at least catch  a smell of it.    In his letter-published in the Mining* and  Scientific Press Mr. Ross proceeds  to  analyze   both    the   article   by  Prof. Elliott and   the  Lemieux  Act itself, in   which   he   shows  that while   the   Act   makes   a  pretence of holding  evenly  the  scales  of justice   between  employer and employee,   it   bears  only upon the former, inasmuch  as he is the only  party  to  any  *   It will be, noticed  that   bids  for carrying the mail daily from  .���������Keremeos to Hedley are  to be  in by March  20th to extend a  mail  service   which   began   in  Keremeos on February 17th.  A  little foresight  on the  part of  the post office department and  the representative would  have  had   these   tenders   called   for  over two; months ago,  so  that  the 'daily' service  could   have  been  carried  right through to  Hedley without this   delay   of  possibly a couple of months, for  in all probability it will  be  the  middle of April before the mails  are delivered here daily.-    Had  there been no  daily  stage  service 'to  Hedley for some  time  after the daily train service  on  the   V. V. & E. . to    Keremeos,  there would perhaps.have been  some excuse for this  lapse or  gap of two months that is likely  to ensue, but ever since the first  passenger train ran into  Keremeos there has been daily stage  connection   between   the    two  places.    The representative of  Yale-Cariboo may bluster about  what what'he has been pleased  to style unreasonable fault-finding,  but there   is   nothing unreasonable about it.   This is the  place where the largest volume  of mail comes ; the transportation facilities were already here  to carry.it forward, and it  was  up to him to  see  that it came  here without this delay.    Hedley had a right to expect it from  him and it hasn't got it.  about forty were ladies, ranging from  school girls to matrons, but-'all with  young-hearts, ready to enter with vim  into the spirit of the occasion". Handsomely gowned and well-skilled in all  the graceful glides and poises of the  terpsichore-in art, and en va He-red by^  knights equally skilled and debotiair,  they presented a scene of beauty and  animation.  The music was excellent'-ahd was  supplied by an orchestra fiom Loqniis,  consisting of C. A. Archer.' trombone  and cornet; Mrs. Archer, piano,' and  E. L. Andrtis, violin. They evidently  had given particular attention to the  the requirements of dance, music and  nianj' popular modern airs were arranged and adapted for waltzes, two-  steps, schottisclics, quadrilles, etc. In  this connection mention must be made  of the assistance lent by Mrs. Daly  and her sou Will, on the piano and  violin, who generously filled the breach  while the oichestra were resting ; -and  1 he excellence of the music supplied  by them was ample explanation to account for tlie proficiency attained by  the young people of Keremeos in the  art of dancing, for Mrs. Daly and her  son have always, been ready to play  for them when requited and gratuitously at that.  Refreshments were served about  midnight, after which dancing continued until 8:30 in the morning, when  tho guests departed, all delighted with  the evening's enjoyment and the success of an event upon which Mr. and  Mrs. J.

"   '.'���������������������������  As a rule pyrrhotite is not associated  with   high   gold  values.     Sphalerite,  however,  is a good  indication.    Chalcopyrite is common,  though rarely in  such, quantities as to hecomeimportant  as an ore. of copper.   On the Warhorse  ���������    mineral claim chalcopyrite"occurs associated with  pyrrhotite in, sufficiently  large bodies to make this claim a promising  one,   particularly  as   the   ore  also  carries, some  values in gold and  silver.    Pyrrhotito is found massive on  ' the Toronto and Galena workings and  .probably as a product of magni^cic differentiation'.    On'die Red Mountain-it  ���������occurs in such .quantities as to  make  the compass absolutely useless for surveying.  The   Yale    Mining. Company   own  some,  twenty-five  claims in the camp,  of which only two,   the Nickel  Plate  and the  Sunny.side,  are being worked  at present.   The ores from these claims  are treated'by ..the   Daly   Reduction  Company ina 40-st.-imp-.mill and cyanide  plant in   the  valley below.     The  capacity of this mill is about 3,500 tons  per month. , The. mine and mill-are  run by   water  power obtained from a  fliuno three miles long.   The company  own an electric tram "line about a mile  , and a half long to carry the ore from  ���������������������������the mine to the tipple,  and a gravity  strain  line of 9,500 feet in length and  3,500 feet vertical height,..'which carries  the ore in five-ton skips to the mill.  q   The. Nickel Plate and the Sunnyside.  are the -most  important claims in the  "camp, and lip to the close of 1906, or in.  less than three years, have turned out  over 77,000 tons of ore.    The Nickel  Plate ore body litis in altered sedimentary rocks, which dip about 16 degrees  to the west.   Interbedded  with these  or cutting them at an angle are intrusive  sheets of  andesite.     A vertical  '.quartz porphyry and a  black dike cut  all   these, strata.

The andesite acts as the footwall, and the ore  body lies in the sedimentary rock in  the zone of contact nietambrphism due  to the andesite intrusion. The metamorphosed rock consists of garnet,  epidote and calcite, carrying much arsenopyrite. The richest ore lies on the  footwall and gradually fades out on  the upper side into low grade rock.  The greatest width of the pay Ore is  about eighty feet. The ore body is  bounded on two sides by dikes and the  third side by a zone of fracturing running across the hill. Both arsenopyrite and pyrrhotite occur, but the gold  is always associated with the former  mineral and the greater the mineralization by arsenopyrite the higher the  values in gold.  The Sunnyside claim adjoins the  Nickel Plate on the south and the ore  body lies in a lower stratum. In all  four workings the ore body always lies  in altered limestone at or near the  contact of an andesite sheet or dike.  Epidote and garnet are not so abundant as in the Nickel Plate, but there  is more calcite, quartz and pyroxene,  all of which are more highly developed.  The rock is very porous and has been  much fissured, the fissures being now  filled with calcite. Sphalerite is found  in most of the Sunnvside workings,  particularly on the footwalls.  In each of these claims the andesite  sheets play an important part, and  with other cross-cutting dikes have  been the cause of confining the high  values to certain restricted areas.  Whether these igneous rocks are responsible for the introduction of the  gold in the first place is uncertain, but  the later concentration required the  peculiar physical conditions that are  now found in each of these claims.  And in the search for other ore bodies  in this camp, the apparently accidental  conjunction of dikes and of dipping  strata such, as arc here found should be  borne in mind.  The    Kingston   group   of   mineral  claims consists of the Warhorse, Kingston,  Metropolitan and the Kingston  Fraction, all lying on the Twenty-mile  slope of the  hill.   The  Warhorse ore  body lies on a contact of massive blue  limestone with an andesite sheet, and  not far from the central core of monzonite. .   The limestone dips 30 degrees  to   the   west,   and   carries   irregular  masses of cherty rock.    It is  cut by  irregular dikes of andesite, which alter  the   limestone  to  an   epidote-garnet-  calcite   rock.      This   constitutes   the  gangue of the ores, and the ore minerals are pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite  and galena.    These are scattered through the gangue  in  varying  proportions,  pyrrhotite forming with  chalcopyrite  the largest   percentage.  The chief values are in copper, but this  The Hed!  L   W. SHATFORD,  Secretary and flanager,  Jty Townsite Co'y, Ltd.  HEDLEY, B.C.  is   supplemented   by some   gold and  silver.  On the Kingston claim farther down  the hill the workings are in the sediments within a few feet of the edge of  the monzonite core. Injections from  the monzonite have penetrated the  bedding planes of the sediments, altering and mineralizing them as in the  case of the Nickel Plate mine. The  chief values are in gold, which is associated with arsenopyrite. Some later  dikes cut both the sediments and igneous rocks, forming favorable localities  for the concentration of the gold by  circulating waters. The Kingston  group of claims is very favorably situated for the occurrence of ore bodies,  and more extensive development may  prove  their existence.  It was possible to examine only a  few of the many claims in the camp,  and only those on which some development work had been done. A group in  the northern part, of the sheet, owned  by Thos. Bradshaw and others, gives  promise of containing some valuable  bodies of ore. Besides this there are  many other claims, which with cheaper transportation and better facilities  will be worked to advantage.  (The Knd.)  METEOROLOGICAL.

ADVERTISING MAKES TOWN GO.  A writer in Printer's Ink  makes an  interesting   diagnosis   of   the   reason  why some towns are "slow."   He says:  "Anybody  who   has   had  experience  traveling among the small  cities and  towns of this country knows that wide  differences are seen between places of  the same population, and in much the  same   locality,   and    enjoying    what  would seem to he equal  opportunities  for trade.    One place of 10,000 people  for instance, will be thoroughly alive,  its shops bright, its people  brisk,  and  prosperity apparently on every  hand.  Another, perhaps but 25 miles  away,  will be thoroughly dead, its stores deserted, dull, dusty, its people given to  the habit of cracker-box conversation.  In one town it is a pleasure to step oil'  a. train and look for business,  while in  the second an  experienced  traveling  man has no sooner alighted  than  he  wants to know the  time of the  next  train out,"  The diagnosis is ridicuously simple.  In one the newspapers encourage live  advertising by charging a rate which  includes setting up new ads. as often  as the merchant wishes to change.  In the other, an antiquated rate system is in vogue, making a low charge  for space aud an extra charge for  every change of advertisement. It's  just worth while considering what  good live advertising by the merchants does for a town and its trade.-  Canadian Grocer.  Average maximum temperature 32.
