V. & E. railway for approval of  plans of proposed lines from the summit of the (Hope mountains down the  western slope to Hope, in the Fraser  River Valley.  Those in a position to know assert  that in all likelihood an order will be  issued"' requiring both companies to  build a joint line, on the ground that  there is only room for a single track  clown the watei'grade of the Coqui-  halla river. In that event the cost of  the road wouitl probably be apportioned between theI two railway companies, eicli of which would enjoy equal  running rights over a section about  twenty -six "-.'mile's long, a pertion of  which'will have two percent, grade. ���������'.  The matter lias already been the  subject of informal negotiations between the two companies. If arranged oh the basis above indicated the  saying affected by building one line  instead of two, apart from the difficulties of the latter, would be between  $4,000,000 and $5,000,000.

AllTJILMt KINO, \\\ "M,  VOL LO.VSDALK. Sect.  The-Mutual Life  Assurance  Company of Canada had a very prosperous  year in 1911.    Its 42hd annual statement shows  that the surplus earned  during the year amounted to $731,064,-  83,  which is a very gratifying result  of the year's operations.     The insurance in force is now  upwards of $71,  000,000, the assets over 18,000,600, the  income $3,320,511, so  that this company has become one of the Doririn-  ron's  big financial institutions.    The  combined effect of a good interest income and a favorable death rate seems  to   be indicated   by the fact that the  interest income would have been .sufficient to  pay the death claims more  than twrce over. The bulk of the company's assets are  invested   rn  mortgages, debentures and bonds and loans  on policies, all of which  have proven  themselves in the past  to be safe and  consistent   with   the   investment  requirements of an insurance company.  The new assurances for 1911 were $10,-  027,374.  New York, Feb. II���������The World advocates a free Panama canal. Editorially it says:  "Canada has expended more than  $100,000.000'-'"to. provide ship canals  froth the Atlantic ocean to the Grejit  Lakes. It is a larger expenditure relative to the population arid resources  than the United States will make at  Panama. The rcpst of maintenance  and improvements are relatively  larger. ��������� <  "Nevertheless, America h vessels are  allowed to go toll-free through these  costly Canadian waterways. Thi;  American tonnage throiigli the Wel-  .land canal is larger than the Canadian. The tonnage of both countries  through the American- and Canadian  canals at the Soo is larger than that  of the Suez and larger than that will  be at Panama. But Canada rejects  the policy of cost-tolls orprofit-tolls  where they could be so easily collected.  It adops the policy of making its artir  ficial waterways as free as the high  seas. The United States does the  saiire with its canal at the Soo.  "Can the United States afford to  adopt a Panama canal policy less  generous to Canada or the nations  than this Canadian canal policy is to  the United States? , ."Protests'are being  made in the Dominion Parliahferit  against preferential tolls for the  American;;' ships in the Panama canal.  Canada has a right to protest. It has  an equal right to ask for- a canal without tolls, arid this country will perform a world of service of greater  profit to itself than can be computed  in money by adopting the policy of a  free canal."

Copper Co. are furnishing 33% of the ore being treated by  the Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood. The Phoenix Pioneer can see  no chance for the minority stock-holders in the Dominion company getting  anything out of it.  The Second Relief mine and mill at  Erie are again being operated. Minneapolis capital has it in hand.  Granite Poor-man is showing strong  improvement   under   recent   develop  ment.  An important Iind of ore was made  recently on Siwasli Creek, a tributary  of Five-mile. The Canadian Consolidated, of Rossland and Trail, have already secured the property which is  on the line of the K. V.  The Granby smelter at Grand Forks  is increasing its output of blister copper week   by   week.

President Madero has come to the  conclusion that'the mailed fist will be  necessai-y in Mexico before order is  restored.  The B. C. Legislature will not give  Vancouver the concession form of  government.  Vancouver has started in to raise  $10,000 for the famine in China.  Gompers was not included in the  round-lip of dynamiters concerned in  the McNarnara outrages.  Dr. Rutherford, veterinary inspector, says that from sixty to eighty percent of the humans have tubercular  infection in some form or other and  that tubercular milk is tin* main  source of infection.  Ten million dollars is invested in  plant for the manufacture ofautosin  Canada. There are. foiirteen factories  and all of them in Ontario.  In no way is the department.of agriculture in the B. O.'"government doing  better and more practical work to  reach arid benefit tlie f-rimers than the  short courses which they are giving to  the-various Farmer's Institutes in this  province.  From now on until the fruit crop  tor.1912.is gathered in every day will  have cause fcir vigilance and attention  bri the part of the live up-to-date fruitgrower. The winter or very early  spring is the time- to dp most of the  pruning and begin to fight the fruit  pests. Everybody who biiyJ* a fruit  lot and goes iii for friiit-gr owing does  hot possess tlie necessary knowledge  of the art and the man who shows  him,what he ought to do and how to  do it is the best friend he could meet.  To act the piirt of that friend is the  thing the department of agriculture  has set out to do.;.  The department are sending out  their, experts .through the proyince to  meet, the farmers at their institutes  arid the commencement for this riding  will Ik's ihetle at Kerehiebs which is the  easiest place to reach for farriiers residing anywhere in the Similkameen  riding, and -where the greater number  of fruit-growers sire centered arid orchards for illustration.

The Liquor Licence Act  lias  undergone amendment to strengthen  some  of the weaker points.     The 'most prominent change  made by  the  amendments is that of looking more strictly  after;  tlie  interdicts    and   those  who  persistently violate the law   by giving  them  liquor.     The  Attorney-general  com batted    the   idea    that   the   law  should be made  to  bear severely  on  the interdict himself, holding  that he  should be  dealt with as diseased  or  insane and not as a criminal, although  the changes  make it possible  now  to  come down heavier on interdicts  who  will   persist  in  trying   to screen the  offenders who supply them   with  the  liquor.     This amendment   will   help  but it will not do everything, and the  mam    thing    the    Attorney-general's  department should  look   after  is the  constables  who should be made to enforce the law, for it is useless to enact  laws if the constables arc to be allowed to assume  the role of supervisors  of legislation  passed   and  suit  themselves as to what laws are  to  be enforced and  what to  remain    a  dead  letter*.  Tho estimates have doubtless been  brought down before this but have  not yet come to hand in time for this  week's paper. But it is safe to say-  that in them it will be found that  Similkameen riding has come in for its  full share. That is a point the representative has never been known to  fail in looking stiictlv after.  GAME PROTECTION  Nelson.  Kootenay mining men have revived  an old association that existed some  years ago but has lately been dormant.  The revival of lead mining in the district called it into life again.

If King  R.  con    George can make as good a job of placating  Germany as  his father did of  France, he will be all right.  The fuller report of the public meeting to organize a. Game Protective  Association for the Similkameen,  promised by our Keremeos correspondent in last week's issue, appears to  have been over-looked by him. The  meeting was held in Keremeos on  Monday, 12th, and the valley was well  represented. The officers elected were:  President. J. A. Brown, Kereriieos;  1st Vice-president, Ernest Waterman, Princeton; 2nd Vice-President,  W. J. Forbes, Hedley; Secretary, W.  M. Daly, Keremeos; Executive, C. M.  Snowden, E. Waterman, F.H. French,  and the president and Secretary.  It was decided to make the membership the mere nominal fee of 25 cents  per annum so as to get the igrgost  possible membership and thus make  the work of the association the more  effective The meeting was unanimous on the desirability of amendments to the Game Act and among  the changes which it was decided they  should ask for was the shortening of  the deer hunting season to cud about  the 10th of November;' the reduction  of the limit per man to three: a closed  season of throe years for grouse: the  increa.-i.* of the bounty on game-destroying animals to $2.") per head for  cougars and timber wolves and $.> for  coyotes: a gun licence ol* $2: tin ap-  I pointiin-iit of four game wardens for  the riding, arid to make sale of deer  illegal at any time.  It was decided to ask for the stocking I'f'treains and lakes with game  fish and to have the Canadian .. lit 11 -  orites act in conjunct,ion with those  of tin United Stales to have li.-h lad-  deis placed in the falls nf 1 he Siuiilk-  amo'-ii.  Tin- matter-of further close season  for big-horn was discussed i>ul left, in  abeyance, and the matter of a gaunreserve in the riding, if such can be  procured. The district, at the bead  waters of the Ashnola was considered  ideal if it could be reserved.  A committee was appointed to draft  by-laws and the annual meet ing was  fixed for the third Tuesday in August,  the place to be decided by the executive.

In the 'February Rod and Gun is a  poetical tribute to Pauline ."Johnson,  the Indian poetess, who is known over  the lengtli and breadth of Canada and  who has warm friends and admirers  for her ability and her patriotic senti-  monts, that were indeed good to meet! P''*'^ easier of solution   than that  of  in these days when patriotism in Canada does not seem to count for as  much as it did in former times. Miss  .Johnson who has been residing in  Vancouver was striken with paralysis  and is   rendered thereby quite unfit to  pursue    her    literary   calling.      .Miss  1  Johnson   deserves   well   at   Canada's  hands and whatever befalls as the outcome of this visitation of sickness it  would be a disgrace to the country if  she should be made in any way to feel  the touch of want.  One  of the  finest publications   the  Canadian   Commission   on   Canserva-  tion of Canada's   natural resources, of  which    Hon.    Clifford   Sifton   is   the  chairman,   has yet sent out (and they  had formerly   issued some   very interesting and valuable productions) is the  report on the water powers of Canada  which   is just to   hand.    The.  volume  contains  some  -100  pages   printed   on  line book paper aud  handsomely illustrated.    It shows the exhaustive character of th(! work which  has been carried on   during the   past two years by  this brunch   ol" the public  service arrd  right   well   they   have   performed   the  service   allotted to   them, there  being  apparently not a single stream in Canada,  upon which   power has  been   developed   tha.t  is  not   mentioned   and  reasonably   full particulars   of the development given.    For instance in the  department given to the water powers  of   British   Columbia it  is shown that  Twenty-mile   creek has  developed 750  horse   power   while  the .Similkameen  river   of  which   it   is   only   one  small  tributary   has not  developed   a single  pound on this side of the international  boundary.     The total horse   power in  Canada that has already been developed   amounts   to   1,010,521    and   this   is  only    a   commencement   on   what  is  available   and  what   is   yet   going   to  make    Canada,   one   of   the   greatest  manufacturing countries of the world.  The Niagara, water  power is shown to  have been very much exaggerated, for  it places the available low water power  of the   river at. 2,250,000 horse  power  which   would give Canada one half or  1,125,000 and a considerable  portion of  church   polity     for   the    people    are  getting  broader nowadays  than they  were  when   the   old   schisms  divided  and  kept   them   apart.      In   doctrine,  two of the bodies weu- always exactly  alike  and the  difference   between the  Presbyterian  and Methodist creeds in  the  point  upon   which  they differed,  was so   trivial that all that was necessary was to forget about the one minor  bone of contention.    The question of  church  polity, however, was   thought  to be the one thing which would most  appeal to the prejudices of both.    The  greatest   point of difference between  the various bodies was that which had  to do with' the choice  and  tenure of  the  pastors in so far  as the. congregation was  concerned, for the rigid machine-like   operation of  the Methodist  itinerancy  left the* congregation very  little say in  the matter of who should  or should not be placed as pastor over  thorn,   while in   the   Presbyterian and  Congregational   bodies  the  congregations had far too much to say for their  own   good,   and   many  of   the   better  class of  Presbyterians will   welcome a  very material   modification of the old-  time   '���������preaching   match"   into  which  the whole thing degenerated when one  minister left, a. pastoral charge before  his successor was installed or inducted  in his place.     So humiliating was the  position   in   which   the   Presbyterian  clergy   were  placed that  not a, few of  them absolutely refused to trot around  the ring  (so to  speak)  and show  off  their theological paces for the delectation of and to minister- to the self-conceit of many   occupants  of  the  pews  who   had   a,  knack  of   making   themselves  over-officious and  disagreeable  at such   times.    The   compromise proposed  by the   basis of union  seems to  have   struck   the   happy medium   and  we believe will be  found acceptable to  all alike.    Keeping in   view the broader principle which inspired the movement for union   the committee which  drafted  the basis acted   wisely in refraining  from over-burdening   it with  an   excess  of detail   which  would do  more   harm than  good by re-awakening prejudices   that  are much  better  asleep.

The Gazette  extends congratulations.  A rumor was started last week by  some highly imaginative individual  that Angus Stewart had died at the  coast and in a short time ib had received pretty general circulation irr  the town. Following close on another  rumor of a week preyious that he had  been removed from the hospital in  Merritt and sent out to the? coast, the  last rumor received ready credence,  but when inquiries began to In; made  as to the authority no one seemed to  know anything about who had told it  first.  During the past week most of the  Hedley golfers have had a try at the  game. With the; exception of two of  the holes which are in a sheltered position and have not had the benefit of  the spring-like sunshine the course  is irr fine, condition for play, with tin;  turf dry and springy underfoot, and  if the greens were put in order again,  conditions would be almost ideal.  Surely the Shnilkanieen climate needs  no other recommendation than the  bare, fact that before February is  much more than half oyer there has  ���������already been about a fortnight of  golfing.
