C., Jan. 1st, 1912.  To the President and Stockholders.  Hedley Gold Mining Company  / ' <- ' '   New York :  Gentlemen:    ,  I have the honor to report progress  for the year 1911, as follows:  Owing to causes heyond our control  the re grinding machinery was not in  operation until March. From March  until the end of the year all the new  machinery purchased in 1010 has been  in continuous operation and has done  splendid work as the returns show.  The tonnage milled is greater than  hoped for by the President and Consulting engineer, and the extraction is  well up to their figures. Several minor  changes were made to get the most  'profitable extraction.  Since the installation of improvements to the power plant the mill has  been continuously operated and 57815  tons of ore treated, with an average value of $11.99 per ton, from  which an extraction of 94 percent,  was made.  During the year a 7000 ft. ditch to  convey water from the melting snows  of Peterson and Dividend Mountain,  to the Stray Horse Lake, has been  conipleted; this extra water will increase the present supply about forty  per cent.  The ore for the mill has been mined  from tlie "Nickel Plate and Sunnyside  stopes, the reserve' of 10,000 tons of  broken ore in the stopes, being maintained.  Thanks to the care and attention  shown by each official in the several  departments, the plant has been kept  up to its maximum efficiency.  SUNNYSIDE NO. 3 MINE  The main Incline is down to 410 feet,  and the third level opened out. As  the trend of the ore shoot is diagonally accross the footwall to the north,  it will be necessary to drift to the  north to cut it. A drift from the third  level is in eighty feet, but so far has  not cue the ore. having only encountered small layers that ayerage about  $5 per ton. Within twenty-five feet  the main ore body should be cut, when  stoping will begin from this level. A  pocket is now being built, and preparations made to do considerable development. Ore has been shipped  continuously from this property, the  stopes easily maintaining tlie usual  milling grade of $12 per ton. Connections were made with Sunnyside No. I  ,-iihI the ore body discovered in 1910.  between the two properties opened up.  This section has produced high grade  ore. and the shipment of twenty tons  pep day has been maintained.  KCNNYSIDK NO 4 MINE  Work done on this property has  been development only, with consi'ler-  able diamond drilling to the fool-wall,  but no new ore was discovered. A  drift .145 feet to the South, at the (100  foot level, was run in low grade ore,  the same drift is now being extended  to the North, on this ore-bearing Lime  Silk-ale.  KINGSTON NEVER  LOOKED BETTER  The work which has gone on for the  past fortnight or-more in connection  with the sampling of   the Kingston  (limited in extent as it has been,  for  there were only.three men  at work)  hus made a very material change in  the outlook.    Tf the same amount of  work can continue to put in sight a  proportionate amount of pay ore the  coming .summer will.have great''things  in store for this-property arid the end  of the year will find  the camp in possession  of another  big producer and  dividend-payer.    .The    funny   thing  about it is that the present showing is  only a few feet from any part of the  old   workings.,-   In fact it is  really in  the old workings on the Kingston and  because the ore  body which   was cut  by the old workings did not happen to  run in the same direction as the tunnel which  was being driven,   the ore  and  the tunnel,  as is too often  the  case, parted company.   The old  rule  to follow the .ore-no matter where it  goes is always a safe one and  many a  good property  to-day is not working  simply because  this old rule was not  religiously adhered to.  Mr. Brookes is still in Spokane and  is having exhaustive treatment tests  made oh the ore and attending to the  matter of equipment, and a. month or  so .'-more will in all probability see a.  good deal more-, work in progress.  Should the development continue; to'  show up as good results as the past  few weeks it will take very little more  in addition to the old workings to  justify commencement on another  mill or whatever other kind of treatment may be found most suitable as  the result of the test work now being  conducted.  SHATFORD  SCORES AGAIN  Secures Splendid Appropriation for Similkameen  Electoral District  REACHES SUM OF $275,000  Last Year's Vote Was About $160,000  Which Goes to Show the Substantial  Increase Obtained. Total Vote for  Roads and Bridges is $5,000,000.  THE   CRIME  AGAINST   CANADA  Cost of Building G. T. P. Has Arisen to  Enormous Sum  The estimates for the fiscal year  ending'3lstbf March 1918 were brought  down last week in the B. G. Legislature and they indicate a progressive  government which does not believe in  tying up the old sock too tight while  there is work requiring to be done.  The total estimated revenue is over  ���������$10,000,000' and the" total estimated  expenditure over $16,000,000 which  indicates a lessening of the surplus,  but when there is work to be done  arid resources to develop it would appear to be good business to discount  the future to a reasonable extent and  geo the benefit of the improvements  as ..'early on in life as possible and give  the present generation an opportunity  to use them.  In the appropriations made the Si-  rriilkauieen riding has - fared right  royally and the representative is to be  congratulated on the votes he has been  able to secure. The Similkameen  share of the outlay for public improvements is as follows:  District Vote $190,000  Hope to Princeton vote of  75,000 of which Similkameen can count on half.     37,500  Bridges, road machinery,  surveys etc     47,500  (Nelson News)  The statements  made to the House  of Commons by Hon. Frank Cochrane  the minister of railways, in which he  threw light upon the cost to the country of  the National  Transcontinental  railway must cause genuine uneasiness  and disappointment  to those who had  hoped that the new line might become  a factor in  securing lower   rates   of  transportation.     Mr. Cochrane showed that  the cost of''construction "has  surpassed the wildest predictions. The  capital cost of the road   to January 1,  1912, is 187,781,128.  With interest added for seven years  which  the  Grand  Trunk Pacific is not bound to pay, the  estimated capital  cost reaches $236,-  000,000 or no  less   than  $130.S00 per  mile.     If the road does not earn three  per cent in excess of working expenses  for the  three years ending  Dec. 31st,  1923, then  the interest is added to the  capital for three years longer, adding  $22,050,000 to  capital cost and making  the total cost of the  railway $113,015  pel mile, plus expenditures for betterments.     The capital cost estimated to  Jan. 1, 1921- will then be $358,050,000.  This is a new record in railway construction, but not a record in which  the people of Canada (ran take either  pride or pleasure. It is a startling record, and one from which it is impossible to extract a pay of satisfaction.  The building of another transcontinental railway was never opposed by  the Conservatives. It was always  agreed that another line might be. of  substantial value in opening up new  territory and reducing freight rates,  but the Conservatives impressed the  necessity of safeguarding the undertaking. They urged the selection of  a suitable route, the necessity for  keeping the expenditures within rea-  si-liable limits and the danger of graft  and corruption. The government gave >  ���������   no heed and the seqiial  is the distress- j ��������������������������� construction must  ing situation  that   Mr. Cochrane  dis  closes.  Politics, not  business  $275,000  As last year's vote was about $160,-  000 the increase this year is a most  substantial one and is calculated to do  a lot of work when properly looked  after and as a rule the road bosses in  the Similkameen riding have given  good value for the money which they  laid out. It is of en ruse hard for- a  supervisor1 to get all his road bosses  over the' riding capable men who will  put up with no nonsense from shirkers  and when a man is not giving a fair-  day's work for the wages paid him,  fire him forthwith. Around Hedley  there has been no trouble in that regard and the public are getting full  value .for the money expended.  The trunk road is of course responsible for considerable of the increased  allotment for road building and this  most important work will mean a  great deal to the constituencies which  it passes through. Siniilkarneen proportionately comes in for a large slice  of this and besides the first cost of  constucting rt there will he the annual  cost'(if maintenance.

GENERAL NEWS  The claim frequently made that the  British civil service has been removed  altogether from politics appears from  investigation to be very much of a  mvth. Promotion in the various departments is altogether dependent on  political pull and the appointments in  the foreign office are made wholly on  recommendations from the Secretary  of state for foreign affairs.  The liberals in the nonunion House  are opposing the building of the transcontinental highway.  A Canadian loan of $23,000,000 N  shortly to be floated in London.

'Continued on I'uire Two I     It is not only that  the amazing cost  SII.VKKI-I.ATK MINE  ttire, interest charges upon every mile  of the line will be enormous and an  iusupeiable obstacle is placed in the  way of any genuine reduction in the  rates of transportation. One of the  chief purposes that it was represented  that the railway was destined to serve  has been effectually shattered.  MINING   NOTES  Three men are still at work sampling the Kingston and doing necessary  exploratory work connected therewith. The results are most satisfactory and a. decided air of optimism  exists.  Work on the Apex is going on  steadily. The work is being done on  contract under instructions left by T.  D. Pickard, who is expected up from  the coast shortly.  Miners in the employ of the Consolidated Mining and Smelling Company, Trail, have been despatched to  the recent galena discovery on Si-  wash creek, a tributary of five mile.  It is near the line of the Kettle Valley  railway. Engineer Oolley is in charge  of operations.��������� Phoenix Pioneer.  Nelson is likely to be lighted by  means of search lights.  "The Dominion government has decided to provide adequate elevator  accommodation for the grain of the  prairie provinces, and they are to be  government owned.  A ten-million dollar British company has been organized in London to  deal in Canadian lands.  Calgary is rejoicing in a promise  that the Duke of Connnught is to visit  that city next autumn.

A KE  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The decision of ;  .lodge. Mr. Justice  Queliec,   in   ruling  Supreme   Court  Charbonneau. -of  ,hat    the    lleberl  nuptials are valid, is a. blow between  the eyes for Ne Tcniere. While this  decision makes the record of rulings  to date -land live against validity  and three for validity, it improves the  outlook even better than these figures  would indicate for if shows that all  the judiciary of the Province of Quebec arc not wholly subservient to the  Vatican nor will they i isk their professional reput.itions as eminent  jurists in obedience to the bidding of  the church when that bidding is  illogical or tyrannical as in the case  of Ne Ternere. The decision rendered  by Mi. Justice Charbonneau is set-  forth in a, lengthy wi itteu judgment  which i.������ said to be of a very order and  is bound to have its main value in the  elVect it is likely to produce upon the  law lords of the Privy Council when  the matter comes up for adjudication  before that noted tribunal to which it  is to lie carried, for it is still the intention of the Dominion government  to have the (pu-stiou submitted to the  Supreme Court of Canada and al'ter-  watds to the Privy Council.  the idea of governmental restrain t  but surely wo have not yet become so  corporation-ridden in Canada thatany  institution may he" allowed to disregard in defiance of both law and honor  the commonest observances that.are  .exacted from the individual. _If Premier McBride's strictures on G.N. 11.  methods indicate anything they will  go to show that one government at  least will be slow to grant any more  favors until the railway does something to show themselves worthy of  the consideration.

Victoria, J'ritisli Columbia,  WHKN WUITINO ADVKKTISKIIH  lV^ISASIS  MKNTION   THIS IWI'Klt  NK'ICKI.  I'LATK  MINI'  Ore from this property has been  shipped continuously and the milling  grade of $1.2 per ton easily maintained.  A very small lonnage has been drawn  from between the -No. 3'ami No. -I  levels, excepting'now ore taken from  beyond'the bouiularies as estimated in  1910. Fioni the No.'-I-funnel level a  crosscut was extended 210 ft. to the  west, which intersected the main ore.  body at 15)5 feet. 'A drift 70 feet to tlie  north and -10 feet to the south of this  crosscut has been opened, which  broves the ore of a, payable grade,  and 'diamond' drill holes indicate the  ore .to extend below the level. This  work lias proven tlie main Nickel  Plate ore body to extend 225 ft. beyond the lines as laid down by the  Examining Engineers in 1905).  While running this "west- crosscut"  another ore body was discovered at SO  ft. from' the No. 4 tunnel, and so far  we have not been 'able to connect it  with any known ore body. We have  drifted on this ore, which is known as  "No. 1 North Drift," for a distance, of  130 feet, and the distance between  walls, at right angles to the footwall,  is 20 ft. and the average value $14 per  ton. Drill holes have 'proven the ore  to-extend down 110 ft:, where the  drill entered the footwall; but there is  no reason to believe that this is the  full extent of the ore, as the last 40 ft.  was of higher grade, and the ore had  the appearance of permanency.' The  average of the whole distance drilled  was $14 per ton. This section of the  property looks very promising.  ���������The intermediate Ore body, below the  sheet andesite which is the footwall of  the main'ore. has' been proven down  to the No. 4 tunnel leyel. The No 0  raise floin the No; I tunnel to- the  workings above having'passed through  12 ft. ot ore which averaged .$10 per  ton, it is safe to figure that there is as  much ore blocked out in this hodv as  was in sight last year. Altogether the  Nickel Plate Mine has considerably  more ore in sight than last year, and  apparently has a bright future.  The actual tonnage in sight in  Sunnyside is probably less, but the  Nickel Plate has more than made up  for it. So that we have no hesitation  in stating that there is now a tonnage  insight equal to the tonnage of January 1010, and of equal value: with  excellent prospects of.opening more  ore in the Nickel Plate, as well as in  the Sunnysides and Silverplate.  The machinery and plant is in good  order. The New York Fractional Mineral Clain is being Crown Granted,  and the July fraction has been secured.  The total lineal feet of development  for  15)11.   is as   follows; Nickel  Plate,  drifting 330  feet, sinking 70 feet, raising 120 feet, diamond drilling 1353 feet;  Sunnyside No.   3,   drifting   155   feet,  raising  510 feet,   sinking  1S5 feet,   diamond .drilling 433 feet; Sunnyside No.  ���������I,   drifting 170  feet,   sinking  170 feet,  raising  25  feet,  diamond   drilling 72-1  feet.     Miscellaneous diamond drilling  050 feet.    Total development 1315 feet.  Total diamond drilling 3100 feet.  "Respectfully submitted,  Corner P Jones,  General Superintendent.

In presenting our 1912 annoucement  for Thoroughbred White Leghorn Egg  Settings, I wish to thank the many  patrons for the favors extended me,  during the time I was engaged in the  poultry business at Keremeos, and in  soliciting further- support I wish to  say that since my .association with Dr.  .1, Westwood in the firm of Westwood  & Brooke, at Princeton, many advantages for the production of first-class  stock and eggs has been derived, some  of the. principal being, "unlimited  range for the stock under ideal conditions" and also the. introduction of  some of the finest blood obtainable in  America, to our stock.  This year our- birds are better than  ever before, arrd year by year we shall  endeavor to breed up to a higher standard. Our ambition is two fold, to  produce birds that are persistent and  consistent layers, and that also fulfil  standard requirements of physical  beauty.  In the matter of laying we are succeeding astonishingly, as our egg records show for December, and .January  and February. Our egg yield for those  months, when eggs have been highest, has been over 00 per cent.  As to beauty we are proud of our  birds and of the ribbons they have  won, during the past year.  This is the very best evidence we  could give of the combined qualities of  our stock, 'Wo notice also that our  best looking birds are invariably our  best layers. By best layers we mean  birds that appaoach or pass the 200  eggs per year mark, and we have  chosen for our 1912 matings, birds  tfhat will more, than average 200 eggs,  and are bred from stock with a record  as high as 282.  One can easily figure out the gross  income from a hen that lays 200 eggs  per year or over, when the average  [nice for new laid eggs in British Columbia for the year is four emits each.  We breed White Leghorns because  they are without doubt the leading  variety for egg production and to substantiate this claim I refer you to  every leading poultry farm in America, out for market eggs, and on a  paying basis, is stocked with White  Leghorns.  To get the right strain is just as  essential as to get the right variety,  but my own experience has convinced  me that it makes no difference how  good the stock may be, that the eggs  are from, if the chicks do not get the  proper food and care, they will never  mature into prize winners or even  good laying stock.  In conclusion let me assure you that  the poultry business is just like any  other business, what you get out of it  depends entirely on what you put into  it, It isn't a case of just throw out  the feed and gather in the eggs. Good  stock is only half the battle, care and  attention is the other half. You can  take good stock and they will do well  under poor conditions, but you cannot  make poor stock do well under any  conditions. The combination that  wins  is good   stock   plus   intelligent  J. A. BROWN  Notary Public  CONVEYANCING, CUSTOMS UKOKEHAGE,  FIRE  INSURANCE  OFFICE  KEREMEOS, B.C.
