For years we have borne the taunt  of being the "one mine canip", Imt  there is now every indication that  that state of affairs is all but past.  Nevertheless under the status of the  "one mine camp", we have not done  so badly. Only five years of -produc--  tion have elapsed and that with the  modest equipment of but forty stamps  and yet tlie output of gold has reached a point well beyond the two  million dollar mark.  .  The one concern .which has been  producing has only touched three or  four of its claims and it owns about  two dozen of them. Their plant is ill-  adapted in several particulars for  ecomomic accomplishment ' of the  work which they have to do and the  wonder has always been that they can  be satisfied with it. It is bub rarely'  that any installation has been made  where material changes for betterment have not been found necessary,  and true economy demands immediate  correction of mistakes. The longer a  so-called mistake is used without  change, the stronger must become the  assumption that the best had been  'done in bhefirsb "place tlfcit5"c61]ld: have  been done under the circumstances.  Bub there is a belief that the Company are at last going to abandon the  policy of drifting "along and are about  to adopt a more progressive program.  Indeed1 the new Water' Clauses Act  now before tHe legislature which aims  at getting the inost possible rise out of  all existing streams may compel the  abandonment of a policy which needlessly wastes power, -when power isso  badly needed. ,  The success vvhich,has attended de-"  velopmetib work on the Kingston  group has placed it beyond all reasonable doubt that the camp has there  another good mine. It is up to the  owners to 'rise to the occasion and  complete arrangements for more extensive operations. Track-laying will  be underway in the course of a few  weeks and anything which they may  require in the. way of a plant can be  brought in by rail as soon as they can  be ready to use it.  The Golden Zone Company have already gone to work, and we have  reason to believe thab there will be no  cessation in that quarter until they  have given to the camp another steady  producer. " '   "���������'.'''  The bond-holders of bhe Sacramento  are making arrangements for work on  that claim with most encouraging  prospects thab what lias been achieved  on the adjoining Metropolitan claim  can bo repeated there.  The Bradshaw group is likely to see  extensive operations during the, co'm-  summer.  The Pollock mine is another property  which only awaits tho expenditure", of  a very small amount to make it a  producer.  Then there is the Apex group from  which much is expecbed during the  present year.  With all these at our very doors,  the. advent of the raijis into Hedley a  few weeks" hence, should witness important changes.  Succession Duties Act Amended���������Oliver  Objects to Sundry Dyking Expenditures���������Various Rail-Way Bills Considered���������Women's Franchise.  CARD OF THANKS.  Mrs. J. L. Caldwell and Mrs.  Greenhill desire to express their  thanks  to  the   people of Hedley for    kindness  shown them in their bereavement.  Mrs. J. L. Caldwell.  Hon. Mr. Tatlow moved the second  reading of a, Bill to amend the Succession Duty Act. i  Here the principal change from the  old Act' is that it prdv ides that all  estates before being: probated must  be submitted to the Firitmee Minister.  Formerly this rule applied' only to  estates of-over $5,000:  Mr. Oliver'was to the fore with some  questions'relative to wrirkdone in the  Coquitlam* dyking disti'ict. He charged* that certain drainage work there  'had' not been done'fdr the benefit  of the public, but for that of private  individuals.  The Premier assured "him that the  draining' of the farm of Mr. Alber-  son, to whom Mr. Oliver referred,  was a simple act of justice as his  land had' been flooded by the Government dyking works.s  ���������Hbn. Mr. Tatlow's Bill to amend  the Succession Duties Act passed second reading.  Bills brought in by Brewster of  Alberni and Mclnnis of Grand Forks  were voted down on the' ground that  they were calculated to'- unduly hamper bhe mining industry, and wexe  therefore, not in the true interests of  labor. .      .  The Flathead Valley railway bill was  passed; as was the attorney general's  bill to amend the Magistrate's acb and  the Arbitration act.  -..- Debateon* the Grancl-*Trunk Pacific  bill was postponed at the request"of  the-������������������opposition.. This was a bill to  ratify the agreement made by the  government with the G. T. P. with  reference to the Prince Rupert Town-  site.  . A Bill to incorporate the Victoria.  & Barclay Sound Railway, a new line  intended to connect Victoria with the  West Coiist, was passed, and a Bill  for a railway on Graham Island was  introduced.  Mr. McPhillips introduced a Bill to  incorporate the B. C. Permanent Loan  Company. ' -  The Vancouver Northern Railway  Bill passed its first reading, and .'was  referred to the Railway Committee.  On Thursday next the clubmen  will  meet   the Executive  with  objections  against the Bill to license clubs.  - There was  a conflict of Dominion  and Provincial interests in the Bill   to  incorporate the   Shuswap and North  Thompson River Boom Company. The  company has   already  secured  booming rights on the river   from  the Dominion Parliament but were told that  they must go to the Provincial Legislature to have those rights conipleted.  Here the petition is'being bitterly opposed   by a number  of  letters    and  counter   petitions,   mostly  from Sa-  vonas.    One of  these goes  so far as  to declare that in   tin*   first place  the  Dominion   charter was  only  secured  through    the   misrenroscntntion   and  subornation of facts in   the*  Dominion  Parliament, by W. II. Galliher, M. P.,  Duncan   Ross,    M.   P..    and  Senator  Bostock, unci that  the  powers  asked  for would be subversive of   the rights  of   everyone else   operating   on  the  river.    Mr. Harold Robertson  appeared in support of the petition,   but the  Committee resolved to  lay it over fox-  one clay to give its opponents  time  to  appear against it.  The new Water Clauses Act, dealing with irrigation and tlie distribution of water in the Dry Belt of the  Province, was brought in by tlie Hon.  Mr. Fulton, Minister of Lands.  The principle difference between the  old act and the new is that instead of  procuring a record at first hand as i  before, a licence is now taken out to  use writer under certain conditions  and restrictions.  The Province is divided into districts for administration purposes with  Gazette readers will be pleased to  know thab the Apex Group, a short  distance to the east of the Nickel  Plate, will join' the *list of working  properties, in this camp.  W. D. McMillan who was principal  owner in this group of which W. J.  Forbes is also part owner, went east  several weeks ago in .connection with  transfer of the property, although  negotiations had been in progress for  some time before.  The purchasers are the Colonial Gold  Mining Co. of New York. The Gazette  is familiar with the property having  visited it personally when1 development work was in progress four years  ago, ab which time our readers were  given a descriptive write-up conveying the favorable impression which we  formed from what was bo be seen. We  have now gone over the literature  issued by the Colonial Gold Mining  Co. carefully, and are most pleased to  note the care "which they have taken  to state the absolute facts connected  with the property.  This feature in itself will give added  confidence to people in the Similkameen that the right class of promoters  have control of the property, for their  confidence in the Apex group is such  as to satisfy them that if it is given a  fair show by capable mining and  honest administration it is bound to  win out. and will not reqnire any  great time or large expenditure of  money to do so.  PROGRESS ON KINGSTON GROUP  Good   Headway     Being  Made   in   the  Metropolitan   Tunnel.  M. K. RODGERS' NEW MINE.  Reports From Prince Rupert as to  Progress on Goose Bay.  Prince Rupert, February 3.���������Frank  Edwards aiid Rod MacDougall are  down from the Goose, Bay Mines,  where they worked for two months.  About 40 men are employed at the  mines; hilt only a few work outside  owing to the weather'. They are cutting wood, teaming, and keeping ice  from choking rip,the penstock. At  the mine, a- tunnel is being driven  to strike the ore body. lb is in 300  feet,'and in 50 feet more, it is estimated, the ore body will be reached.  A tramway two miles long will connect the mine with navigable water.  The.first mile will be operated by  cable and the second with an electric'  engine. The grading for the second  mile is-almost-as--heavy work as on  the G. T. P., and when conpletecT will  be a good job. The work done at  Goose Bay is of the best, iind the mine  promises to be one of the big producers of British Columbia. The ore  is copper, carrying values in gold.  COMMONS NOTES.  Clarke of Essex has introduced a bill  ab Ottawa to make railways responsible for full damage by fire caused by  engines, whether resulting from carelessness or not.  Taylor, of New Westminster is probing into the matter of Bill Miner's escape, which Aylesworth resents as unwarranted interference, and discredits  Bourke's threats. The opposition are  pressing for an inquiry.  Leniieux's bill to compensate for loss  of registered mail up to $25.00 in value  lias passed.  ���������Foster objects to prison labor competing with free white labor, and  cited instance of where 9B pews had  been made by prisoners for a church  in'Quebec at a cost of $10(5.00.  Tlie government whips have intimated that no assistance will be given  this session for railsvav building.  Work is progtessing rapidly on the  new tunnel which Manager Pollock  started about ten days ago to strike  the ore body on the Metropolitan.  By.following his ore through shaft,  drift and winze on the Metropolitan,  he knew exactly how bo go after it  with the tunnel; and to eliminate any  possibility of mistake he had a .survey  made, and points given him to enable  him to steer to the exueb spob which  he wants to reach. This tunnel  should reach it in about 92 feet, and  we understand thab of ^this distance  something over 25 feet has already-  been run. The rock which they are  driving through is quite hard, but it  breaks well and because of this they  are making very good headway.  The benefits to be derived from this  tunnelare far-reaching, in the matter  of convenience'and cheapness of working, for it will do away with hoisting  muck and will supply drainage, to  say nothing of the splendid ventilation that will be secured when connection is made between the tunnel and  the shaft.  PUTTING THEM NEXT.  Martin Burrell, M. P., Tells Montrealers  About British Columbia's Resources. -  The Resources of British Columbia  formed the subject on which Mr.  Max-bin Burrell, M. P. for Yale-Cariboo,  gave an inberesbing talk to the members of the Canadian club at the weekly luncheon on Feb. 9th. Mr. Burrell  jocularly touched upon the "encyclopedic ignorance" which prevailed in some  quarters regarding British Columbia,  and then went on to -describe the com-  mercial value of the Pacific waters  which bounded British Columbia and  the shores of the million islands bhere.  Concluding, Mr. Bu-erelL.dealb,,wibh  what he called "distinctively British  Columbia questions." First, there were  bhe difficulties of settling a country  with such extraordinary geographical  conditions. These conditions called  for "better terms" from the Dominion  Government, a necessity which everybody acknowledged' who had firsthand Knowledge of the province.  Then there was the problem of  Asiatic immigration. . , In regard to  this, he' believed thab the preservation  of bhe social and industrial life of the  Canadian children and the children's  children depended upon the wisdom  with which this problem was dealt.  He believed that the views of bhe west  on bins question were sound,, and personally he emphatically .'endorsed the  sentiments of Mr. Rudyard Kipling  thab they must choose between their  own kith and kin and an alien and  undesirable, separated in his aims and  instincts .from them by thousands of ,  vears.  OBITUARY  a provincial water commissioner and  district water commissioners who will  adjudicate upon applications according  to amount of water applied for. If,  the amount is less than four cubic- feet  per second, the approval of the water  commissioner will bo obtained and the;  responsibility of seeing that tin- interests of the public are conserved.  Existing rights that are being used  will not be interfei'ed with, and certain provisions are made for existing  rights thab are not ab present utilized.  A hydrographic survey of streams is  provided for in the bill.  On Thursday evening of last week  the end came for J. L.   Caldwell   who  has been ailing for   about a   year,  although    it was  not until  September  last that he gave up   work.     His  -������������������'-  meiit    was diagnosed  as ��������� "pernieio ..,  anaeniia"\vhich comprised a number of  other   complaints,    effecting    special  organs, such   as   tho  heart,  stomach,  liver and   kidneys,   but only  as  concomitants of the. general malady. Last  spring In;, went to Spokane for medical  advice    and    so    far   as    known   the  opinion obtained there was   in  accord  with   local diagnosis.     His  work on  the wagon  road   during   the. summer  seemed to aggravate the malady,   and  about    the    end  of August ho    was  obliged to give up.     For some  weeks  his condition was very serious and the  end appeared near, but shortly   afterwards during   a   trip  to Vcnon  and  treatment   there,    he   seemed   to do  bettor, bub these temporary  improvement were only phases of   the  general  malady. Deceased was highly thought  of   in  the  community.     He  was   industrious and capable; and discharged  his duty at all times.to the best of   his  ability. Besides a widow and one child  he leaves i'our brothers   to  mourn  his  loss.   Mrs. Caldwell has the sympathy  of all in her bereavement.

THAT INSURANCE EMBARGO ;  Au important matter is  now  beforethe B^C. legislature that  ,...]is engaging the attention of insurance men.    A measure is being discussed  in  the  house  to  compel fire insurance companies  from other provinces to putup a  deposit of $30,000 before  they  can do business in this province.  It is a most significant  feature  that  the . measure  was introduced at the instance of 'representatives   of what .is  known  as board companies.    Noc only  is the war being waged at Victoria but the boards of trade in  various centres are  taking the  matter    up    and    hot   debates  where arguments pro and  con,  but : principally   con,   are  the  order of    the day.     The Vancouver board of trade  has put  itself on record by appointing a  strong delegation to   go to Victoria  to  oppose  the  measure;  but before this delegation was  appointed the question was exhaustively gone into   by members of the board of   trade.    In  that debate the speakers  seem-  ' ed   to line-xip  on the  dividing  point of  board insurance  men  against business men and  non-  board    men,  although  one   or  two  instances  were  shown  of  ., insurance men who represented  non-board companies that have  already obtained a foothold in  the province joining  with  the  board companies to keep other  companies out by imposing this  $30,000 restriction.     The  business men claimed that business  houses in Vancouver  were  being fleeced by extortionate rates  which the insurance board was  pledged to maintain and  that  some of the companies that the  bill was calculated to keep  out  would give insurance  for  one-  fifth less cost and with as great  if not greater measure of  safety to policy holders.     Speakers  who opposed the measure  were  prepared to show that the pub.  lie   had    been   misled  by the  mythical character of the  supposed safety afforded to policyholders who placed their insurance   with   board   companies;  There  was  no guarantee  that  The Hansard report of ' Mr.  Burrell's speech at Ottawa, on  the address, is to hand, and although-the favorable: comment  on that speech, appearing in  Eastern papers led us to expect  something particularly good,  it required a. perusal of the  speech itself to convey" airy proper idea of the genuine ability  displayed therein by the representative of Yale-Cariboo. We  regret Chat the space at our  desposal' will not warrant a  reproduction of it, but we hope  that Mr. Burrell will be able to  secure fnom the public: printing-  bureau a sufficient number.-of  copies to distribute to electors  in the riding. *V  development reduce the fuel problem  in bhe abstract to a practical commercial resultant.

A Joint  Account  WAGON ROAD PETITION  COMPENSATION   TO    FARMERS.  Martin Burrell and j. D. Taylor, M. P's.  Make Kick for Special Treatment.  Ottawa, Feb9th���������When Mr. Fisher's  bill to amend the animals contagious  disease's act came up today in the  House of Commons, a long discussion  ensued. The bill was rendered necessary by a misplaced word in last  year's bill. Protests were made against  the practice, of refusing compensation  to 'farmers whose, animals were, slaughtered to suppress contagion unless  slaughtered by order of government  officials. This made the farmer suffer  for his caution and public spirit in  killing animals before the harm was  done, while the man who waited for  the disease to spread and the govern ���������  menbofficer bo arrive was compensated.  J. D. Taylor and Martin Burrell asked  for more compensation.- for animals  slaughtered in: British Columbia,  where cattle, were more valuable. Mr.  Fisher would nob make any definite  promises. The bill was read for the  first time. ������������������ 7  - (Toronto World.)-  Mr. R. Stephenson, one of tlie  pioneers of British Columbiaand large-  lyiiiterested in Similkameen, asked for,  the.endoi'sation of a petition for a road  that would open up one. of the be.*it  mineral districts in the province. The  road would be 51 miles long and when  it was .completed one could drive all  the way from here to Spokane. . This  secbion7was bhe broken- link. lb should  have been-built long ;*.go as it would  tap many ledges of valuable gold.  silver and copper ore and coal.  Mr. J.

He siezes upon a  problem and fit once attempts to resolve the abstract deductions of the  scientist in the commercial result of  the practical worker. A deposit of  anthracite coal in the vicinity of ���������the  North Pole is valuable���������in bhe abstract.

A deposit of high-grade bituminous  coal within a reasonable shipping distance from an industrial centre is  highly valuable���������practically and commercially.  The manufacturer seeking a location,  the railroad surveying a new line, the  hoineseeker deciding his place of residence, must eventually largely base  their conclusions on the availability of  coal supplies, its quantity and its ultimate cost to the consumed, and when  the comsumer can with absolute  security, become also a producer, he  reaches the peak of commercial efficiency, dividing his cost of consumption by the profits of his production.  In the Pacific Northwest anthracite  coal-must, of a necessity, be eliminat*  ed from the problem ��������� the industrial  worker and the railroad must discard  lignites; therefore bo turn to our  bituminous   coal areas and in  their  METEOROLOGICAL.

An important newspaper change  took place last week when an amalgamation of the old Loomis Prospector  and the Oroville Gazette-was accomplished. The fine newspaper plant of  the Prospector is being moved' to Oroville, and installed in the Gazette  office. Frank Dallam the veteran  newspaperman who was the founder  of both the Prospector of Loomis arid  the Spokesman-Review, of Spokane,  will be editor, and Fied Fine business  manager under- the firm name of  Dallam and Fine.

The suggestion they make is to  arrange for a distinctive Similkameen  display which is to include farm and  orchard produce and minerals and to  send a man to take charge of the display, "as   they will be sending fresh  fruits and vegetables all the  time to  take the  place   of  samples   that are  wilting.   They suggest a joint meeting at Hedley to arrange for financing  the cost of sending exhibit  and  sending a man to take charge.   Jt- would  seem that a question to be determined  firsb is whether the exhibition authorities would permit a mixed display of  that kind being made.     As  they will  have separate   buildings for minerals  and agricultural produebs, bhey might  not wanb bo fall in with theideaof mixing it up in that'fashion.  The old adage that "those who laugh  last laugh safest" bids fair to  be exemplified in the experience of holders  of Wireless stock.   Two months ago  the know-it-alls were   both wise and  facetious, but the financial statement  received by the stock-holders last week  which    showed    cash    in     treasury  $100,400, bills receivable $176,500 and  bills payable, (current monthly) only  $15,550, makes the laugh on the other  side.   The.earnings are increasing by  leaps and bounds month by   month,  and it is on that basis alone  thab advances in the price of stock are made.  The stock-holders in annual meeting  held on January 12th voted to pay no  dividend from the cash balance in hand  of over a quarter of a million  dollars,  bub to expend it in construction  work  putting in new stations and enlarging  the factory capacity so   as   to enable  theiii to turn out apparatus as fast as  new contracts come in.    For   months  past the factories have  been working  day and night to supply apparatus required and were far behind in   then-  orders.     United Wireless   is   a very  much   alive   concern.

That there are beaver  in the Similkameen Valley to-day, and  thab bhey possess much of the industry  and skill in hydraulic engineering and  darn building with which the species  has been credited, there is not the  shadow of a doubt. No one that we  have heard of has caught sight of them  for bhey remain hidden during bhe  day-time, but their work may be seen  any day by anyone driving between  here and Keremeos. The game laws  protect them, and it is hoped thab  severe punishment.will be meted out  to anyone, whether white man or Indian, who is known to trap or kill any  of them. On Atherbon's flab, near bhe  mouth of the Ashnola, they have a  dam in course of construction and are  making excellent headway in the  building of it,  while the open  space  that they have made since last fall by  felling trees from twelve to fifteen  inches in diameter, represents work  that would cost aboub $50 or $60 to  have done by ordinary day labor. Ib  is true bhey are making prebby free  with Mr. Abherbon's timber, and up to  the present we are not aware that the  government timber inspector has  succeeded in collecting from them any  stumpage dues for trees already cut  down, but so far as injuring fruit trees  is concerned, if the charge were made  openly to them it would be indignantly denied. There is also another place  on the river, at the lower end of brushy  bottom, where a colony of beaver are  at work, but possibly these may not  have heard about the close season, for  their work is far less conspicuous than  Atherton's colony.  4g*  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  <������  ������  ������  ������  ������.  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  9  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������'  ������  ������  ������  *���������*  ������  ������  ������.  ������  ������  ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  Try  ^wwwvwmniAw  Vfctoria  Cross  ������  CEYLON TEA.

THE  HEDLEY  GAZETTE,   FEBRUARY 18, 191 '9.  WHEN COAL IS KING  The Bituminous Coal Beds of the North-  ���������.; west Will be Gold Mines  .';   The annual report of,'A. Bryan Wil-  . .liams,   provinciiil.   game   and   forest  warden,    is   an  unsuaily   interesting  and satisfactory one.    It  shows . that  the new sy'sbc'in'introduced  last year  is   working;   wc*!!;' and -that the   big  game of ".the provinco,  with  the exception of the wapiti  on  Vancouver'  1slan'd, is on  tlie  increase.     Tlie report is far boo , long for  reproduction  in   a   newspaper,  bub ib will   repay  reading by all sportsmen interested in  ���������the'game resources of British Colum-j  bia and their preservation.  The special   grant of $10,000 made  last   year for the first  bime  by bhe  legislature has been  bub libtle  drawn  upon,   as the revenue from licenses  and so forth comes  to within some  $200 of that amount.     At the same  time the i-evenue thus assured hasmer-  mibted the engaging of game wardens  who have done good work.    Addition-  game wardens are recommended; and  it is pointed out that ������������������in' addition  to  their   ordinary duties' they are   frequently able  to Tend  valuable assistance to the .provincial police.     These  wardens are particularly needed in the  country to be traversed by the G.T.P.  and   the   McConnell   creek   district,  ���������where there are thousands of caribou.  Numerous    evasions of the license  laws along bhe. coast as far as bhe head'  of Vancouver island are reported. The  offenders are from theStates and come  in launches  or yachts and rarely if  ever tu'keVub a'license to   shoot.   The  purchase of a. fast launch is advocated,  so that these gentry may  be looked  after.   It is also suggested that   it be  made    an  offence  to -carry firearms  with out a license.    The revenue from  big game licenses amounted to $7700  during the past year.  The Indians appear to have given  little trouble last yeiir, andthekeeping  of the Stony Indians from Alberta out  of the province has had a splendid  effect on the game on the eastern  boundary.  In the East Kootenay reserve the  game is increasing, and it is suggested  that the reserve be made a permanent  national park. The importation of  European red deer and chamois is  suggested, and it is pointed out that  the former have been most successfully  acclimated in New Zealand.  Moose are increasing and spreading  further south ; caribou have been seen  in great numbers in Cassiar ; deer except near the coast cities, appear to be  on the increase, while East Kootenay  is being restocked wibh wapiti. On  Vancouver Island, however, these  animals are being heavily shot for  their teeth, and protective measures  are said to be absolutely necessary.  The outlook for sheep isl also encouraging. ��������� ��������� -������������������'���������..  A plea is. entered for the grizzly  bear, said to be nearing extermination  in some sections. He is stated to be  really very timid and ��������� it is suggested  that it'be prohibited to trap him.  The beaverhave increased enormously inSoubhera British Columbia,andin  some parts of Kootenay, Okanagan.  Similkameen and Kdmloops sufficiently so to be a nuisance to fruit-growers.  Permission to kill them under restrictions is suggested.  The report is not so encouraging as  to game birds, though even, in this  case it would seem thab, generally  speaking, conditions are improving.'
