The following marriage notice taken  from ttie'Gravenhurst Banner will interest the many friends of the contracting parties in Hedley. The Gazette extends congratulations,- with  best wishes for happiness- and prosperity:  "A quiet wedding took place at the  home of, the bride's - parents, Mr. and  Mrs. "Donald-Liimorit,* on Wednesday  ���������ifternqqn, Feli.; 5th,' 1908, when their"  daughter, Marion'1 was united* in mar-  riagft'to ,MivJ.'J:' Irwin, of Vancouver,  B/C.

It is a collection of the  evidence heard before, a select committee, of .-the, Senate 'of, Canada during  session of 1906-7, printed'on fine paper  and beautifully illustrated. The cam-  era cannot lie, and when" one look J?''at  beautiful'' reproductions' of photographs showing potato fields on Great  Slave Lake and at Fort Good Hope on  the Mackenzie Rivet- in latitude 60/16  degrees, 97Qniiles north of Edmonton,  and broad fields of wheat at Fort Providence north of Great Slave Lake,  the latter taken on July 15* one wonders where Canada's potentialities end.  "West.wakd ho!"��������� "Shakinut", a  powerful story of Sitka in .the times' of.  the Russian occupancy, by Captain  Olive Phillips Wqlly, has been purchased by the publishers of Westward  Ho! and the opening chapters appear,  in the February issue. It will run as  a serial and will doubtless prove a notable addition to the literary contents of  the magazine. In the department,  "Builders of the West," W. A. Har-  kin has a capital pen picture of A. C.  Fluinerfelt. A bright two-color cover  design, a superb frontispiece and a  score, of clever stories, articles and departments make the midwinter number an absorbing one for the magazine reader. Besides, Westward-Ho!  has the unique distinction of being.the  only independent standard monthly  published in Canada that sells at the  popular price of 10 cents.  Mr.  Mclnnes'.- Bill. to 'prevent  discrimination against.members of trades"  unions was defeated on second reading  by a vote of twenty-three to thirteen.  Hon. Dr. Young and Schofield, on the  Government side, voted for it, and Mr.  Munro and Mr. Brewster,  on the Opposition side, against. ,  .> Mr. Hawthornthwaite, moved a  resolution asking the Imperial' Parliament to appoint a royal commission to  enquire into the workings of the,immigration  laws and  the'differences between the Dominion and the Piovince.'  Mr. Williams moved an amendment  to the Crow's Nest Northern Railway  Bill,  that the charter only be granted  on condition that no orientals shbVild  be employed.  Mr. Ross, who moved the Bill, refused to accept the amendment, but  said that he would be willing to insert  a f air- wage- clause.  Mr. Williams' amendment was defeated.  * The Vancouver-Nicola'.Railway Bill  passed its second reading.  .Messrs. Wainwright and Tait, of the  .Grand Trunk Pacific, are on their way  from Montreal to Victoria, to resume  negotiations with the Provincial Gov-  ernrnehtre the Indian lands at Prince  Rupert.   ���������' '������������������ * '  | ;Jai*dine/took:active part in opposition to the: CiviLService Bill; He said:  ���������'^I; wquld;ask the Government to with-'  di-aw/its Civil Service Bill; and to expend the $200,000 which that bill provides for the nucleus of a superannuation'fundvin building', needed* trails^  roads arid bridges oy to further extend  the benefits of our public school  .system."- '; ��������� ";  He supported his.lengthy resolution  to^this effect with a lengthy speech in  which he; characterized the hill as attempted class legislation only calculated to create dissatisfaction and unrest.  Parker Williams presented a: bill  making*'it unlawful to bring into" the  province any doniestic servant or employee without advertising same in the  B.-C> G'aiett'e; stating his rpasori for im-  poi-tingi.and the wages he would pay.  The Chief Comriiissioneiv of ��������� Lands  hrought down a bill consolidating the  laws affecting- Crown lands. All the.  laws andaniendinerits made regarding  Crown lands for the past eight years  will,- by this, bill, be consolidated. It  is a bill of forty-four pages. ���������  The resolution, presented by, Messrs.  Jiii-dinn.: and- Williams, against super-,  animation of civil servants was as  follows :  The bill proposes to authorize the  payment by the Government of $200,-  000 for the purpose of forming a nucleus of a superannuation fund for the  benefit of civil servants. But the civil-  servants of British Columbia have the  advantage of short hours in the performance of their duties and under  the most, healfhfol.and favorable conditions.  Moreover the monies required for  this .superannuation allowance must,  of necessity, be taken by way of taxation from the wealth producing  classes, none of whom are. as well  remunerated as the civil servants, although earning their livlihood under  much more onerous conditions.  The resolution adds���������"Whereas the  $200,000 proposed to lie set aside by  the terms of this bill could bo expended'much more advantageously for the  For the firsX time since hisyisit here  in the .spring of 1905, when he came in  along with a number of contractors at  tht: instance of J.

Farrell, who was  then executive officer for- the -Great  Northern  Railway,  Hedley <*was hon-  otpd last week with a  visit from Pat  Welch,  who is known over the whole  of the west on both sides of the line,  from the great lakes to the Pacific.  Wherever progress has extended her  bounds by the building of new railway  lines into districts heretofore unpio-  vided with transportation, he is generally to be'foiirid ;   and  when he ir* referred  to. as "Pat, Welch it is with no  sense of disrespect,  nor any desire to  take   liberties   by undue familiarity,  but rather a compliment to his personal prowess, for it is never to men who  have done nothing that brusque familiar patronyms are applied.

Like others who owe success to their  own effort he had his small beginnings  and the building ofthe.C. P. R. in the  early eighties^found him mastering details,  the acquirement  of. which has  stood him in "such good service.   At  present he is associated with J. W.

Therefore the bill should  be withdrawn and be re-introduced with that  portion  of the bill respecting, superannuation expunged.  THE  ESTIMATES.  The budget speech delivered by Hon.  R. G. Tatlow showed a most satisfactory state of affairs.  Never has the financial position of  the province been so satisfactory.   A  net surplus of revenue over expenditure of $],201,000 was reported.   The  estimates  owing to the change* in the  fiscal year are only for the 9 'months  ending March 31, 1909.    They provide  for. an   expenditure  of  $3,1-13,270.06.  This amounts to within $150,000 of the  total expenditure of last year.    Over  $700,000 is to be voted for roads, trails  and bridges while each of the various  departments of. government owing to  the expansion of the last year, requires  a larger amount set aside for it.  ��������� Similkamee.n's share, as usual shows  the watchful  care and untiring insistence of its representative.   The various votes in which this riding participates will possibly go over tHe $70,000  mark.   They include both a bridge and  a new school for Keremeos,  a  wagon  road to the Apex neighborhood, and a  liberal distribution all over the riding,  many small   bridges   being renewed.  Details will be given later.  A correspondent over the signature  of "Norland" contributes the following  on the question of Indiau'Reservations  ,to the Vernon News. While tho remedy proposed has been pointed out in  the Gazette at various times, it is desirable thiit the matter be kept before  the public, and correspondents are  helping along the good work when  they contribute thus. The subject is of  so great importance to the well-being  of many parts of the province that it  is the duty of the press to keep ifc always to the front, and if the press at  any time wearies in this particular  kind of well-doing it is to be hoped that  the public will not.    Norland says :  Much has been published far and  near about the Okanagan country ; its  fruitful soil, balmy air and abundant  natural resources. Little heed has  been given to drawbacks and restrictions imposed by man.  Large tracts of rich fruit land passed  under the exclusive control of stockmen, and were used as cattle ranges,*a  reasonable portion being cleared and  fenced for hay land.  A much larger proportion of the  very best irrigable land was long ago  culled out alt along every valley and  set apart for Indian Reserves. Representatives of the red man asked  largely ;. the. government of the day."  gave, freely.  ������������������- This was not then "a white man's  country" as regards the Crown do;  main/' The white men were here in  force and here "on purpose." But  niany erred in their choice of wealth?;  producing enterprises. They chose an.  uncertain ��������� a precarious search for  precious metals high in the hills, xleep.  in the mountains; a search attended  .with inuch, peril to health and life,  with, large- outlay in labor of the costliest kind.  I Thus men toiled, waited, and toiled  sujairi'to secure treasure which meant  to them rest and ease, and fine houses  andgourneyings to far off; lands when  the. treasures of the. mines should,  he won.  ; The wealth of the soil was of little  account to men who sought to be suddenly rich. The land, therefore, which  heldiliriiitless rewards for diligent industry was left uncleared, untilled, to  be, taken and kept by any with discernment to see its value and tact to  secure legal control of it.  Neither the Indians nor their guardians are rriuch to blame for past  wrong-doing or. for, existing evils ; nor  can culpabity.be attached to old-timers  among the white folk. The mines,  the fisheries and the forests promised  large wealth quickly gathered, while  the clearing arid cultivation of land so  rugged offered no attraction to - migrating pioneers.  Now, views have changed ; fruit culture has been tested fully. Results  exceed the highest hopes of all who  have- put money and labor into that  industry. The need of the hour is to  remove every removable hindrance to  the. progress of that which must, be  "our staple trade," throughout these  far-extending valleys, river fiats,  benches and mountain slopes. Surely  what has been done with signal sue- .  cess, under serious disadvantages, on a  limited area, can be done on a larger-  scale when fairer conditions obtain.  Surely when wild, rough, rocky land,  stubborn and repellant can, in four or  f:vo years, be, worked up i o a productive value of six to eight hundred  dollars per acre and when thousands  of home-seekers need and desire such  land, it were treason to the country to  perpetuate any needless and senseless  interdict upon the settlement and cul-  Continuod on Pago Four.

CAMSELL'S  REPORT'  The i;epoi*u ,oi' Charles '.Cam-  sell of the- Canadian  Geological  Survey on -Camp Hedley   was  concluded, iu  last issue  of tlie  .   Gazette.  . ivT,r. Cam'sell- was chief  of the party v/ho spent the summer   of   ]907,    oxamiuiug*   the  cami-1. and. the report which he  has made to the.' mines  department of the Geological Survey  will prove.. most Ratifying  to  those who. have,.interests  here.  The j)resent report is orily preliminary   and. it 'bears- evidence  of condensation   which   would  indicate that  they have   been  placed on  short allowance . for  space.    Nevertheless it contained a large'fundof most valuable'"  information and when the full  detailed report is made, accompanied by the topographic-map'  now in  course of preparation,  the residents of this camp will  have every.reason   to   do   full  credit to the Geological Survey  for    the     thoroughness    with  which  tlie  work has  thus far  been   done.     This   preliminary  report is excellent in matter and  arrangement   and   shows    the  hard work and close  study bestowed by Mr. Camsell and   his  assistants upon the task which  had been set him.  It is pleasing to note that in  the last few years the Geological Survey has prosecuted its  work from a practical standpoint aud that effort is made to  have the survey supply all possible aid to the mining industry.  Mr. Low the director" is thoroughly in sympathy with mining, and on his staff are several  enthusiasts among whom may  be mentioned Messrs. Jirock and  Camsell.  The change of" two years ago  which took the Geological Survey out of the Department of  Interior and transferred it to  that of Inland .Revenue, and following this the formation of a  mines department of the Survey  was expected to bring it more  closely in touch with the mining industry. The one thing to  be feared is that politics may  be allowed to creep in and interfere with the work and plans  of the staff.  It has been stated publicly  that during tlie coming summer  Mr, Camsell is ^.be,,tak,en from  Camp Hedley and sent up on  the Tulameen to investigate  some platihuiiii\ deposit.^ known  to exist on .Champion and Slate  creeks. If this kid-napping of  Mr. Camsell besso (and coming  from the source from which it  has been obtained it is likely .to  be) there is too much,reason to'  fear that some political pull has  been exerted, for it is well-  known that Mr. Camsell, at the  (dose of last season, estimated  that it would take most of (if  not all) the coming summer to  complete the woi-k which had  been laid out for Camp Hedley.  Nevertheless it would scarcely  be asserted at Princeton and  beyoW with so great a degree  of confidence that Mr. Camsell's  work for the coming summer  was not to be at Hedley but on  the Tulameen unless some such  promise had been made them  either by the representative or  the minister. It will be too bad  if the work at Hedley, so well  begun, should be interfered  with before being properly completed. The Gazette has always  advocated trebling the amount  appropriated for the Geological  Survey to enable more parties  to be put in the field and the  pay of those,who have 'proven  their worth increased so as to  make sure of retaining their  services instead of allowing  them to drift into the- better  paid service of private corporations. ��������� .'," ���������'."''  This preliminary, .report   by  Mr. Camsell,we  recommend to  the careful study,   not only   of  those  whose'   interests   are   in  'Camp Hedley but,of .tlipse interested as we'll in-the.mineral resources of the/province-.*   While  the report is, of necessity, technical to a considerable degree,  there is evidence., of patient effort  on  his   part to, bring all  technical -treatment of his  subject within,.the  scope  of those  whom it is calculated to benefit,  namely, the intelligent prospector   and    mine   operator.      To  Hedleyites    it   is.  particularly  gratifying that he speaks  with  a degree  of confidence of the  favorable geological  conditions  prevailing and -.refers to what  has already been achieved here  in what he terms the "greatest  jH-oducer of gold  alone  of any  camp in British Columbia."  .NATAL ACT ULTRA VIRES.  1836  THE BANK OF  So Says   Chief  Justice, Hunter  of  It '        J        *��������� '  Supreme Court of British  Columbia.  the  1908  ���������  ��������� The Industrial Disputes Act,  better knoAvn as the Lemieux  Act, has had its first round in  the courts when an action for  appeal was heard in an Ontario  division court-to quash a conviction made by. the police magistrate at Cobalt who lined  James McGuire $500 and awarded, eight months imprisonment  in default thereof. The charge  against McGuire was that of inciting employees of the Nippi-  sing Mining Co. to go on strike.  Mr. .Justice McGee found the  conviction defective and ordered tm amendment by which  the term should be reduced to  three months. His decision is  reported to have been-a review  of the Lemieux Act which he  characterized as being "as full  of defects as a sieve is full of  holes..' If the act goes down in  this ignominious fashion >the  first time its validity is called  in question, it.will lose its terrors for both sides.  Tho Pollock group is sulci to he looking particularly well, and is improving every clay with tin* work put on it.  The ledge upon which they arc working is now known to be li feet wide,  and the vain mutter promising. The  Gazette hopes to visit the property  shortly.  After Lieut.-Governor Dunsimiir assented to: the Bowser Bill anil thus  passed it up to Ottawa to hudeals with,  the wires indicated what Ottawa's  first answer would he, Despatches  told-that tlie Minister of Justice at  Ottawa.had instructed the local judiciary to take all necessary'"steps- to prevent enforcement of the Natal Act by  the authorities in British .Columbia.  The-outcome of l;hcsc instructions, is  seen in the following despatch :  Vancouver, B. C,< Feb. 21.���������Chief  Justice Hunter today directed that the  two Japanese now lying in New Westminster ja.U'for violating the recently  passed Natal act of the province should  be immediately 'discharged from custody. ���������.������������������:������������������  On a.demand being made, by Robert  Cassidy. Iv. C��������� representing the province, that a recognizance, be demanded  from the.prisoners* pending the appeal  which was instantly taken,, his lordship refused to entertain the request  and stated in comment upon the matter- that'the. two Japanese were peaceable subjects of Japan \vho had been  illegally detained. As. far- as he could  sec������, they evidently had good action  against somebody.  In a reserved maimer,  his lordship  stated that he would venture the opinion that the provincial Natal act did  not appear to be in contravention of  the general  immigration  laws of the  Dominion, as the? British  treaties allowed   the- provinces certain rights of  legislation regarding immigration. The  real question before him was, he said,  however^ as' to whether the provincial  Natal act'contravened, the treaty with  Japan,  which, by  parliamentary authority, stood on'a par with all other  statutes of 'the  land. .The. treaty act  must be read in connection with other  Dominion acts governinguiimiigration  and under these provisions there would  fctil'l be some classes excluded.  But;the  pro vi ncial act we n t f'.iu-t h ei* an'd  i in -  posed a test'dot sanctioned by the Dominion  authorities.     Therefore  there  was  no doubt that the. provincial act  must be.held as inoperative as regarded  the subjects of Japan  seeking to"  enter the'-; province. '   '  Immediately after the,judgment was-  given, Mr. Cassidy., representing -the.  government of British Columbia, gave  viiotice of appeal, and asked that'the  case be viewed as an urgent one, and  the argument heard at the earliest possible moment in order to -expedite the  latter appeal to the privy council.  The two Japanese, whose entrance  into Canada, was the occasion of the  test of the Natal act, were re-arrested,  on the ground that they had come from  Portland and not fro ni Japan direct.  ��������� Following the receipt of a message  from--New' -Westminster that Chief.  Justice Hunter had declared the new  British Columbia ..-immigration act  ultra vires of the legislature, and unconstitutional, the proceedings begun  against. Japanese landing from, the  steamer Tosa M'aru have been dropped  and steps are. being taken to arrange  for the holding of a court of appeals at  once to hear tiie argument in appeal.

The attendance at the fortnightly  dances in Fraternity Hall keeps up,  and theinter.est.is in no wise diminished. That on Friday night was one  of the most successful that have been  held.  Government agent Hugh Hunter  went down the'lin'e last week making  the round of the. various construction  camps, and going as far as Keremeos.  This is the time of year when revenue  tax is rounded up.   *  Mr. J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of  the V. V. & E., who spent part of last  week in town, went to Princeton on  Wednesday, coming back by return  stage to Hedley where he met Pat  Welch and went down the, line with  him next day.  A party drove, up from Keremeos  on Saturday consisting of 3[vs. J. J.  Armstrong and her daughters, Mrs.  Moore and Miss Armstrong, accompanied by Messrs W. Moore and W. D.  Barber. Besides taking in the stamp  mill of tlie Daly Reduction Co., tho  Gazette had the pleasure of a short  call. They drove back to Keremeos  the same evening.  What was voted one of the most enjoyable evenings in the way of a social  gathering that has been held in Hedley was that which invaded the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Joynei- on  smelter flat. The guests, after something of tho style of the old-fashioned  surprise party, assembled shortly before S o'clock, and for four-hours gave  themselves over to solid, enjoyment,  the roomy, beautiful residence affording every facility. Music, games and  an impronitu programme, musical and  literary, without the slightest bit of  stiffness,or constraint, combined to afford what was unanimously declared  to be an ideal evening's enjoyment.  The "auld Scotch ' sangs." sung by  genuine Scots with the whole company joining in the choruses, combined  with the other enjoyable features of  the evening, to make the hours short  and midnight came all too soon.  Among the new-comers who have  cast in their lot with the- Similkameen  is Mr. Win. Mattice, recently arrived  from Manitoba. Mr. Mattice is an inventor, and like many other inventors  was forced to fight off sharks before he  was allowed to enjoy the benefits of  his invention. . Those who have had  any experience with farming in the  eastern provinces will doubtless remember a process which was used to  prevent smut and rust in wheat, and  which consisted in soaking the seed  grain in absolution of copper sulphate,  commonly called bluestone. To ^the  farmer who had a hundred acre farm  and who mostly had from 20 to -10  acres of it in wheat, the task of treating the seed grain with this solution  was no light one, for it meant soaking  it in buckets or tubs or boxes, and en-,  tailed much labor in shovelling and  mixing ; but to the Manitoba farmer,  whose annual acreage of wheat was  ten or twenty times larger, it meant  a great deal more.  To meet the want for something  that would do the work effectively and  expeditiously, Mr. Mattice invented a  machine which he called the "Acme  Grain Pickler" and for which he obtained a. Canadian patent right. The  machine could treat 100 bushels of seed  grain per hour, and was so arranged  that the'flow of wheat and the flow of  liquid were automatically proportioned, and stirred and mixed so thoroughly that each grain of wheat was thoroughly immersed or washed. A Brandon company infringed upon his  patent-right and were, going, to ride  over him. Reluctant to lace a lawsuit  with a strong financial concern;- lie  olfered to allow them to manufacture  all the machines' they wanted for i'oui-  years if they would pay. him. $1,200,  but they persisted- in their  Seeing that he either had  be snuffed out, lie employed counsel  and entered action in the Court of  King's Bench, for the first case under  the patent act that had come-up in the  west. He had to pay out in-law costs,  $1,800, but the case was given in his  favor for $12,000, of which $4,000 had  to be paid him forthwith, and the balance of $8,000 at $1,000 a. year.  An interesting but sad feature in  connection therewith is that tlie lawyer to whom he gives the most credit  for successfully conducting the fight  in his behalf, has fallen by the wayside  through the drink habit. He. went to  Vancouver to practise law, and readers  will doubtless recollect having seen in  Vancouver papers about a lawyer who  deliberately stole a suit of clothes in  order to get committed to jail for six  months in the hope that he may by  forced.abstinence overcome the drink  habit, rather than take the gold cure  which he claimed would ruin a man  physically and morally. Mr. Mattice  read the item in coast papers and is  quite satisfied that this is the same  man who conducted his case, which  was tried in Brandon and was given in  his favor as already outlined.  <>-������*���������������������������  &<*-<&<X>&-Gxfr<*+  MONEY TALKS  I  AT  i  t  bluffing,  to fight or  SHATFORDS'  FOIi the next ten days, from the ]9th  to  the 29th of February,   we are  going to give you a chance to get  ��������� better value for it than you have ever-  been able to get in the country before.

Hia Bterf ol How He Lired Hia Life  All Over la m Flash.  "Drowning is not the only experience  that causes a man to read bis own  biography in the flash of 'a second/'  said F. C. Roberte, d locomotive engineer, /  "I was running on the passenger  trains between Atlanta and Macon several years ago, and I was to meet the  northbound train at a certain station  on the road. Well, it was all my fault  I hadn't slept any for five nights, and  the only rest I had was in my cab.  The last stop that we made before  this experience of which I apeak the  fireman had to wake me up when the  signal to go ahead was received. I  had gone to sleep in my cab.  "As we approached the next station  the. conductor may have signaled me,  as he. claimed he did, but we dashed  through the town at about forty miles  an hour before I heard the down; break;  signal. The minute I heard fit I saw  the, headlight of the uortlibound train  less than 300 yards away, coming  around a curve. I threw on the air  brakes and reversed, but it all looked  too late. The fireman jumped, but I  was paralyzed. The two great engines,  one bearing a special train, rushed together, like angry buils, and I was  frozen there, aud while those trains  rushed: together 1 saw every incident  of my life just as plainly as the day  It happened. That's all I know about  it.  "They took me to the hospital, and  nine, days later. I woke up after a spell  of brain' fever. The train,** stopped so.  close together the pilots were sprung  out ol' place, but otherwise there was  no cl4ii!inge. They laid to get n new  englncrr' before my train pulled out.  though, and that, was the ia.st lime I  ever   pulled   a   'throttle.*'  METEOROLOGICAL.
