But a rrroie interesting and extraordinary feature is- seen in'' the comparison of precipitation.    For Hedley  we have not figured it up, for down  here it does not matter so much, but  Mr..

O, BOX 906  Vancouver, - - B. C.  A new feature in,the British ppliti  cal situation is indicated by. J;S. Willi-  spn .who is returning from England  that already the most ardent supporters of tariff reform are becoming uneasy and fear that their opponents  will adopt tariff reform as a plank in  their platform and thus tori-*-tall the  tariff reform unionists.  The willy-nilly spineless attitude of  Balfour on the tariff eiuestion has ever  been a bad set-back te> the cause of  tariff reform in Britain. Chamberlain  is the one man whose political farsightedness would have nailed those  colors to the mast long ago and had  that been done the fight would have  been won befeire now; but the insular  self-sufficiency of the Cecils and the  faltering and hesitancy of Balfour,  gave no encouragement to the electors  to adopt the change. Should it now  be adopted by their opponents anel  they be robbed of the credit of giving  to Britain a sane trade peilicv, it will  be time for the unionists to loeik about  for a leader who can lead.

Close, of Federal Session Foreshadowed���������  Intercolonial Branch Lines  Ottawa, February 16.���������The second  reading of the Commons Bill authorising the Government to acquire  branch lines connecting with the Intercolonial, was moved in the Senate  to-day by Sir Richard Cart-wright. It  provoked cemsiderable discussie>n.  The Senate Banking and Commerce  Committee this morning considered  the Insurance Bill, section by section,  cemsulting with Supt Fitzgeiald, of  the Insurance Department.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier gives notice  that from now on Government orders  shall have precedence immediately  after questtans on Mondays. This  foreshadows an atteinht to bring about  an early ele>*-e; of the session.  The Gazette is indebted   to a friend  ���������      *      *      - ;    -       . -  for copies at times of the British Cali-  foruian  which is a weekly review of  affairs,  social, industrial and political  in the United Statesand Great Britain,  with occasionally some notice of other  countries. Its editor is an Englishman  who writes for- the English residents  ** "* * t  of California  whether naturalised or  retaining their British ollegiance.    He  is-a peilitical -economist of no mean  order and being in a position to know  what "he "is talking about from 'long  residence in  be>th  England   and   the  United States his comments aiu parti-  cnlarly   mterestrng and   instructive*,  especially those  bearing on the* recent  British  elestions.    We in   Canada are  &e~������ much used   to   the ignoiance   of  Canadian  affairs  elisplayed  by news  papers  in the United States and England when  they attempt to   discuss  them that their distortions have "ceased to be funny,   but when   the British  Califoruian touches em Canadi.irr teipics  its. editor   gives   evidence   of   being  reasonably well  peisted  thereon.      A  late, issue   deals with the  question e>f  the? proposed'British   land tax at con-  srdejwible  length,  and  in  a  mei-st exhaustive manner. We have emly room  for a paragraph or  two.    Concerning  the land tax proposed  the Galifor nian  says:  "But there is a still graver eibjection  to this1.-'increment tax > of- .twen ty. per  .cent, which LloydrGeorge.,,proposes.  The .burde.ri()f"it, \yonld fall upon the  .people.,;- ...   .,   -....:-,;>.,���������..... ;:..,,-..   .'. V  ��������� ��������� "One,pf our esteemed correspondents  :-put-fto.us  this question*., "Has .not a  land .tax been ,rn forqe in. Arnerica and  Germany,,for many.years,  and is  it  iConsidered, .unjust?'-';    We   know   not  ���������iJbout Germany,   bu,t in   the United  Stated,there is.a land tax, and a very  stiff one. And who pays it? Who pays  it? we repeat, for this is the,important  point.    Apart from the, Customs Tax,  the tax on personal property, and real  estate   is    the   principal    source    of  revenue in  the United States.     We  consider; it.-.'unjust, .very   unjust,  because.it falls entirely upon ,the, people.  Let'us see how.   The capitalist,  large  or small, .who invests in a city store or  dwelling  house, in fixing the price he  shall  demand in rent,  puts down first  the cost to.him of the property,   to  this he adds the taxes, then  the insurance,  then the interest, he.thinks  his money should earn.   The tenant  pays it all,  if.the property be a dwelling house.   The public piiys it all if  the property be a store.   And in this  way:   the merchant figures   what the  goods cost him, adds the cost of insuring them,  the rent e*f his store, tlie  personal property tax,  interest on his  capital invested, his running expenses,  and  this sum  added  together establishes the cost price of the goods.    On  top of that he adels his profits, which  may vary with the exigencies of trade;  and you,  the consumer,   the public,  foot the entire bill.  "It is because of the high tax on  property that rents in San Francisco  are higher than in London, where*  land has ten times or more the value.  The peior pav most of the tax in  America; the rich very little. Men of  wealth are too shrewd te) put their  money into property to any extent.  They put itintei enterprises the value  of which cannot be gauged by the  assessor, and in other ways hide it.  That is one reason why we have so  many multi-millionaires.  GETTING READY TO OVERHAUL  Stamps Being Hung Up to Make Repairs  ���������Development Work Being  Rushed  The severe' cold snap of this week  made it loeik as if a close down of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co's. plant would  be imperative, but as there is water  enough left for a week or more they  will continue to run on for that length  of time be-fore banging up the stamps.  Altogether Mr. Jones" has made a  plucky fight of it against the* unprecedented severity of the winter, for  never before were the woiks kept going through,so long a period of continuously cold weather which set in  early and has kept it up with almost  monotonous regularity in the way of  zero visitations. , Febru n-y it. not yet  ont anel "already we have had emr  fourth zei'o' snap, a thing which did  not happen-before even in the two exceptionally cold winter ot 1906-7 and  1908-9 during both of which* winte*r&  the  works  were, shut down  for   the  "j * '  entile winter*. v  '    When they do shut down the mill is  to get irregular overhauling to be ready  for the: re-opening  when the water increases with the melting sno\*,s which  will in all probability occur as seion as  the repairs, c-m be effected and todo this  the mill   hands  will  be  emrployed,  or  if thine are any among them who are  good  miners and  would prefer  working in tlie mine they  will dqubtless be  given an   opportunity te> do se> for Mr.  Jones is   now on the lookout for. geieid  miners to push development work."-     <="���������-'  '/���������In  addition teVthe  mill repairs  and  changes  there  us  also .'a-lot  eif other  work  to be done   prominent   among  which is the.renewal of the .trestles on  .the tramway and from present appearances none eif the mill force need lose  any time.  In the power house Mr. Cleveland is  pushing  the  work   of-installing   the  mew plantwhich when completed will  furnish abundance of compressed- air-  to work all the drills at the mine they  may wish   to crowd on,  together with  running all the diamond drills and the  hoists 'and    pumps    independent   of  water-supply -except what: may here-  quired for the.boilers. In the work of  installing  the new plant they   have-,  another demonstration of-the truth of"  the  maxim    "The  evil  that  men  do.  lives after  them," for a piece   eif vandalism on the part of Mr. Ross in having the foundation  bolts for the other-  side of the air  compressor sawed  e>ff"  with a hacksaw  has  proven troublesome and expensive.    Vandal and all  as Lamb proved himself to be.   he had  sense  enough  to  leave those foundation   bolts alone,  and it remained for  his successen- to be guilty of the act,,  thus delaying  the work  of installing  as well as the money  it has ceist to repair  the damage.     Ahenit five weeks  more, or peissibly a little less,  will seethe new plant in operation, and then a  break down of the flume need not stop>  operations at the mini*.  GENERAL   NEWS.

"One  King, One Flag, One Fleet" made an  eloquently rounded out period and  the sentiment it conveys is bound to  find an echo in patriotic hearts;  The* Private Bills committee of the  B.'C. Legislature has recommended in  favor of the incorporation of the Penticton Railway 'Company to"build a  road up the Okanagan valley from the  International boundary to Penticton  but a difficulty appears tei have arisen  in the shape of opposition from quite  an unexpected quarter. Neil McKay,  the* member for Kaslo, has expressed  his determination to. oppose it until  the: Great- Northern who are interested in the incorporation of the company, agree to re-e:quip and operate a  portion e.)f railway in his constituency  which, they dismantled some years  age) because it was of- ne) use-to them  and could only be operated at a loss.  This is a position altogether unexpected for Mr. McKay to take, and one  whie-li his frrends in this portion of  the rilling are very sorry to see hirn  occupy for more 'reasons than one, for  they would be pleased to continue to  think him a man of. broader gauge.  Evidently the action of.. the Greenwood board of trade in connection  with the extent-ion of time-on.the V.  V. & E. charter to build over the Hope  Mountain gave him the idea. It would  look ' as if the Boundary and the  Kootenay have a pick at this portion  of the: province.  Commercially the governments of  Canada anel Germany have rubned  nose-sand adjusted their tariff differences with the result that the Canadian government have, abolished the  German surtax and Germany.has pull-  eel down her tariff wall against Canada. The arrangement does not appear to be regarded with the greatest  amount of satisfaction in Britain  where they fear that Germany is trying te) win Canaela from her allegiance  by this plentiful use of commercial  gumdrops. Johnny Bull should takei  ji tumble: to himself, although it is not  necessary for him to lose any sleep  over the possibility of Canada develop-  News despatches contained' an ..opinion, to, the'- effect that someone who is  styled Adiiiii-al Sir Cyprian Bridge*  disagreed with Sir Oharle\s Berejsfoid  as te') the condition of the British navy  and who says the navy is' in a very  high state of efficiency compared with1  that e������f either powers;  Now who is Sir Cyprian Bridge and  how docs it come that we on this side  of the water haye never mauage'd to  'hear of his existence? Beresford we  do know-bee-ause he has /lone things,  ''and-if the either .chap had done things,  doubtless we would have heard of'him  too. Yet the news dispatch in a tone  of cock-surenessproclaims birn abetter  and more reliable authority than  Beresford.  It is always unwelcome news to the  British people to be told that anything  which they have can be: inferior, yet  the best men they have had as well as  the- best, .men they have today, have  been forced at times from a sense...of  duty 'to'tell them tlie truth lit the risk  of their popularity. To ;say that the  'British army was not up to continental standards before the Boer war was  to incur public odium in Britain.  General Butler who was in a better  position than any either military man  to thoroughly understand the state  of affairs in South Africa at the beginning of the war anel who did understand them, pointed out the magnitude of the task and for his 'candor  and sound knowledge was driven into  temporary disgrace for his timely  warning'which if it had beien heeded  would have, saved many valuable lives.  To him properly bolonged the command of the British forces' in that  war; and the mistake for which Buller  to whom the c.eimmand was given,  paid most dearly was in not paying  more heed to the advice of his old  comrade inarms and attempting impossibilities that public clamor and  departmental inefficiency 'made popu-  lar. ''     *  Beresford occupies practically the.  same, position today with regard to.  the^navy which Butler did in the  army in 1899. They were both men  who did things, and for that reason  if for no other, deserved' to be heeded.  Moreover- the British government  know to-day that 'Beresford. is right.  Bert where does'Sir''Cyprian come in  when members of the government like  Sir Edward Grey and Mr. Asqiiith  himself have said the very opposite of  what he has been telling   the people. ?  "When the German programme is  "completed Germany will have a fleet  "of thirty-three Dreadnoughts. That  "fleet will be the Inost powerful the  "world has ever seen. This imposes  "upon us the necessity of rebuilding  "the whole of the. fleet. That is the  "situation. If we were to fall into  "a position e>f inferiority we should  "cease to count for anything among  "the nations of Europe and we should  "be fortunate if our liberty were left,  "and we did not become the conscript  "appendage of some stronger power.  "That is a brutal way of stating the  "case; but it is the truth." These are  the words, not of a jingo or scaremonger, but of Sir Edward Grey, the Foreign Secretary.  The view of Sir Edward has since  been echoed by Mr. Asquith. That  statesman describes the situation as  "most grave, and to us not only un-  "forseen, but unexpected." It was as  a result of this situation that the oversea dominions Were invited, tei join in  the defence of the Empire.  , Everything New and" First-Glass  Bar supplied with the Choicest  Liquors and Cigars, and Special  Attention   paid   to   the   Table.  -74 Years in Business  Every Ban Icing  Accdrnmodation  Capital-and-Reserve-Over $7,000,000  offered to Farmers,  Cattlemen,  Miners  and Lumbermen.,  PALfl6&  Livery, Feed & Sale Stables   TIlfiDLEY, 15.

Nature study has taught its devotees
the important fuuetion performed, by
the bee in fertilizing the fruit by mixing the pollen of one tree with that of
another, but apart from the scientific
interest which the subject conveys
there is.the strong sordid dollalrs and
cents phase of the question as well to
! appeal to us.
At Summer-land the fruit-growers
an* taking joint action in the matter,
and at a Farmers' Institute meeting
bee culture was ^discussed^ when an
excellent paper was read by_ R. ,. P0I7
lock, who pointed ouffthe consequence
of imperfect fertilization in the inferior character, of the fr.uit which
must result, and reminded- them that
as they were making war upon-, the
moth and. butter-fly by means of
spraying, they would have to depend
solely upon the bee.
Cultivation also is breaking up the
haunts of the wild bee and wasp, and
as bee culture can be made profitable
in itself sis a side line, no district that
hopes to, hptd its own in fruit-growing
caruifford** to ignore the raising of bees.

of thirty per cent in Canada's total
trade during January and an increase
of about twenty per cent in the total
trade for the past ten months, as compared with the corresponding periods
of 1908 09, is shown' by official trade
returns made public to-day.
. For January, the total trade'was
$51,500,000, and for the ten montns it
was $564,000,000. There are respective increases of $12,500,000 and $95,

A specially interesting feature
the naval debate at Ottawa, was seen
in the speechs of Liberal members like
McLean of Queens-Sunbury. He is a
colonel in the militia and his patriotic
words show that his principles are
right in line with the position he oc-
cupies. It is needless to say that he
voiced the sentiments of many more
good Liberals like himself, and if. this
question were only out of politics as it
should be, it would readily be seen
that the whole country, Conservative
and Liberal alike,'are at Jaeart ready
to do their whole duty, without any:
grudging spirit and ready to do it in a
manner .that will not be' open to phe
suspicion of being a covert step in the
direction of Canadian independence.
