Pipe-fitting'done.  Newts has reached Hedley of a deal  for the Kingston and although a good  deal of rumor surrounds the street  yarns concerning it the grounds for  the story that have been gleaned by  the Gazette are of so authentic a  character and go sufficiently into  detail to permit of no doubt as to it  genuineness. The bond that has been  given by the owners in Quebec'is now  held by A. B. Clabon of Vancouver  who is well known to the older residents ol* the camp and whose former  connection with Camp Hedley also  happens to have been with this same  property.  The price and the terms both bear  evidence of the fact that the bondholder has found the Quebec people an  easy mark, and the whole deal sounds  more like the kind of bargain that the  prospectors negotiated with buyers  fifteen or twenty years ago than tlie  kind'of .contract usually recognized  nowadays when mining wa������" supposed  to have become''" more of a business  transaction aud loss of hit or miss  shake of the dice box. The price is  the low figure of $125,000 which makes  ducks and drakes of the holdings of  the poor beggars who seven years ago  bought" their "stock at 25 .cents'*per-  share. The bond carries the immediate payment of the magnificent sum  of $500 with another payment of  $4,000 in six months, $10,000 at the  end of the year and the balance in  quarterly instalments thereafter on an  ascending scale with a final payment  of $50,000 at the end of two years.  The working conditions to which  most prospectors always attach a great  deal of importance appear to have  been of secondary consideration. Prom  information to hand it would be misleading to "say that we were in ignorance of what they were for there is  good authority for saying that they  are about as those obtaining under the  Brookes option, and it was generally  understood that they were almost nil.  They provided, however, for shipment  of ore which the bond-holder was  privileged to make so long as he gave  the vendor one third of the net proceeds which were to count as so much  paid in the purchase price of the  property.  If these then are the conditions of  the present deal, Mr. Clabon is to be  congratulated on the bargain he has  been able to drive. It is to be presumed that with the property he will  also get the. charter of the old Kingston  company, which he may use or not as  may prove convenient.  The Kingston Gold Copper Alining  Co. was capitalized at $1,000,000 and it  is said that about 800,000 one dollar  shares have been issued to the public.  In case the course pursued, providing  the deal is consumated, should be that  of closing out and disincorporating the  old company on the basis of the  valuation obtained, the amount left  for distribution after commissions and  other outstanding obligations are discharged, will net stockholders somewhere less than 15c per share for their  stock.  But while Mr. Clabon is to be congratulated on the job he has made of  working the Quebeckers he is still  more to be congratulated on the property hegets at this easy consideration,  lie has had ample opportunity to  learn something of the merits of the  property during his former-connection  with the Kingston and we are safe in  saying that the development that has  been done since his former connection  with it, has shown up ton times the  value that was known at the time he  left it.    In fact so far as financing the  enough to do it by deduction alone  without tho very desirable aid of  development.  Details of the property with statement of development done and results  obtained have been given time and  again in these column!:, and if the  write-ups wore all collect-id they would  make a fair sized book is.-, themselves.  Nevertheless it- is an undeniable fact  that not half has yet bi-en told, and  even while the property has been"  lying idle the whole situation in the  camp has undergone so great a change  that the prospects of the Kingston five  years ago and what they are to-day  ase no more to be compared than a  wheelbarrow is to a Wagner coach.  Is it any wonder then that local  patience has become so. thoroughly  exhausted and disgusted .with the Kip  Van   Winkles   who' have   slumbered  ���������PROVINCIAL  LEGISLATURE  More Important Railway  Legislation  over the property all these years ?   -Oi   IT IS UP TO B.C.  This Province Greatest Hopefor Empire's  Timber Supply���������-Will It Be Preserved ?  A   letter has   been   received at   tho  For.est Branch from a noted professor  in the University of Edinburgh,   Scotland, who is desirous of having  a full  full set of   photographs  and   lantern  slides to illustrate a course of   lectures  in Forest Administration in   the principal   countries   of   the   world.     The  young men in l������ui ope  who are going  into   forestry    work     are    becoming  deeply interested in  the  development  of   forest   policy-', hi'-Canada," and in  particular in'iBritish; .Columbia,- which  contains half the timber in the  whole  Dominion. ;7 There -is   ho   doubt  that  within a short "time this province  will  he the principal source of timber within the Empire, and as   protective and  other -measures    are    advanced    the  system of administration will  partake  of   the   thoroughness  seen  in   India,  where, since the   inauguration   of  the  Forest Service by Sir"Tneirich Brandis  a marvellous   system   has   made  tree  crop production an   advanced  science.  There was expended in India last year  about $5,000,000, but this was returned  with  $3,000,000  profit.    The   expenditure in British Columbia   last  year on  Provincial forests was about $280,000,  or one eighteenth of the amount spent  in   India,   while   the   returns   to   the  Crown  wero $2,S00,0()0.    British  Columbia's forests are   likely  to  produce  (i!x millions annual   revenue, according  to Mr. Benedict of the Forest Branch.  The realization of the importance of  British Columbia forests to the British  Empire is  spreading   through   all   the  homeland and the colonies, and augurs  well   for   future   prosperity    of    this  province.   ���������   SCOTT REACHED POLE  TWO RESOLUTIONS PASSED  Legislature  Pays Tribute to Memory of  Member of Intrepid Antarctic Explorers  -And   Backs Up  Britain's  Stand  on  Panama Canal Tolls.  (Special Correspondence to the Gazette)  But Gave His Life in the Attempt-  Companions Share Fate  Ca'pt. Robert F. Scott the Antarctic  explorer who had gone in search of the  south polo leached the goal on Jan.  19th, 1912, and perished a month later  in making his way hack. There-wore  four in the party who made the final  dash for the polo and all perished in a  fierce blizzard or succession of blizzards  which lasted for almost the entire  month. One of the four who was  taken very ill and delayed them considerably was the cause of the loss of  the entire party.  All the records of the expedition  havo been saved but the bodies of the  dead explorers were left where they  perished as no good purpose would be  served by bringing tho remains out.  TRAINS IN SPRING  Service Between   Port Mann and Hope  on Canadian Northern  Mr. W. G. Swan, divisional engineer  of the Canadian Northern Pacific  Railway Company, states that the  company's terminals at New "Westminster will cost about $3,000,000, of  which approximately $2,000,000 has  already been spent for right of way.  Mr. Swan states that work on the  Lulu Island line would commence by  March 1 and work in Vancouver will  follow shortly. The company's line  into Hope will be completed by March  1 and a local service between Port  proposition is concerned under the I Mann and Hope started early in the  bond   he   holds   there   is   now    data' spring.  Victoria, B.C.���������Tho act to aid the  Canadian Northern Pacific Railway,  which was introduced in the House on  Thursday by the Premier, calls for a  government guarantee of ton million  dollars worth of bonds wliich mature  in April 1950, the chargeable rate of  interest being four and one half percent, payable half-yearly.  In return for the guarantee the corporation render deeds of trust or first  mortgages on their terminals at Port  Mann, Vancouver, New Westminster,  tho tunnel and approaches at Victoria,  at Stevcston, and at Union Bay on  Vancouver Island. The mateiials and  supplies used in and about the construction of the terminals to be  procured within the provincoof British  Columbia, and from manufacturers,  merchants and dealers located and  carrying on business in the province,  providing it is possible, to do so. Provision is also made 'for'-"'government  audits of the accounts of the company  at all times during the tenure of the  agreement. .  In a masterly speech which accompanied the introduction of the bill Sir  Richard outlined the railway policy  which-the ^government' hud pursued,  and dwelt upon the. 'manner in which  the railway terminals in Victoria had  been secured by the settlement of the  Songhees Reserve difficulty. The Administration he said had been severely  criticized by a few individuals for the  expenditure wliich had been necessary  to effect this settlement.  In tho clear concise eloquence for  which the Premier excels ho pointed  out the benefits which had resulted  to tho city of Victoria from the culmination of this question which had  dragged along for years. The land  acquired, for instance, would not  provide terminal facilities for the  Canadian Northern Pacific alone, but  would, because it -was owned by tlie  government, he thrown open to every  bona fide transportation company that  wished to come in. He could not think  the amount paid Mr. Matson, of  $7.*5,000, to effect this settlement had  been excessive in view of the fact that  assets making a net gain of approximately $5,000,000 has been secured in  return. In his mind it had been good  business, a bargain that the people and  the government should be proud of.  Sir Richard commented upon the  proposed and already contructed  systems of the C. N. R. in British Columbia, emphasizing their importance  in the development of the interior as  well as their influence in taking care  of the trade of the coast cities.  Mr. Parker Williams, the opposition  leader, moved the adjournment of the  debate.  Advices have been received by the  Premier from Ottawa to the effect that  an order-in-council has been passed for  tho appointment of a special commission to investigate the question of  special financial terms to the province  of British Columbia at tho hands of  the Federal authorities. The appointment of an Indian commission to  administer difficulties and disputes  brought forward by the aboriginal  tribes of the province has also been  announced and the identity of the  commission it is expected will soon be  made public.  In honor of Captain Scott, the  martyr of scientific endeavor, the  dauntless explorer who died heroically  in the bloodless cold of the antarctic  circle, a resolution of regret moved by  the Premier and seconded by Mr.  Parker Williams was passed immediately after the convention of the  House on Tuesday.  Painting  with   firm    sure    sincere  language the probable scene that had  taken place in that w'ldcrness of ice.  Sir Richard expressed his pride at  being a countryman of the man who  had faced death so fearlessly and with  reverent pathos he touched upon the  sacrifice made by the-member of tho  party, who, in order that his companions might not be hampered by him in  his crippled condition, wi-nt out from  the safety "f the hut one night and to'  the requiem -of a. shrieking blizzard  passed into the beyond, thus prolonging the lives of his companions.  The resolution is the first measure  brought forward ,by the government  during the present session which the  opposition leader, Mr. Williams, has  concurred in and a copy of it. will be  forwarded to the widow of the hero  Captain.  Another importantrcsolution passed  in the house on Tuesday was one  which dealt also with an extra-  provincial matter. This expressed the  stand of the government in relation to  the attitude which the. United States  govern ment. had taken on the Hay-  Pauncefoto treaty of 1901.  The resolution read as follows :���������  Whereas according to the provisions  of tho Hay-Pauncefote treaty of 1901,  as expressed in rule 1 clause 8, it was  agreed by the United States of  America that the Panama Canal  should be open to the ships of all  nations upon terms of perfectequality.  And whereas, by act of Congress,  passed in 1912, vessels owned by the  United States and engaged in coastwise trade are to be exempt from  canal dues.  ��������� AncL whereas such discrimination  would obviously operate to the disadvantage of British vessels engaged'  in the carrying trade on the Pacific  coast.  And whereas in .July 1912 the British  Government entered a protest against'  the preferences granted by said act of  Congress to American vessels, and'  again in .-November of the same year  renewed the protest and requested  failing other means of settlement that  the question should be referred for  arbitration to the Hague Tribunal in  accordance with the provisions of a  treaty with the United States in 190S.  Therefore be it resolved, that this  Legislature views with great satisfaction the attitude assumed by His  Majesty's Secretary for Foreign  Affairs in upholding the rights of  British and Canadian shipping in the  use. of tho Panama Canal, and expresses ��������� the sincere hope that the  negotiations which have been undertaken may speedily result in a just and  amicable settlement being reached.  Second readings of the respective,  bills to incorporate the cities of Pore  Moody and Coqm'tlam were secured  by Mr. Manson, tho member for  Dewdney, on Wednesday.  Hon. Mr. Ross whom Mr. Parker  Williams alleges is the champion long  distance speaker of the world, delivered another very eloquent speech in the  house on Monday, as an accompaniment to his motion for the second  reading of the hill to amend the  Forest Act.  Mr. Ross pointed out that so excellent had been the legislation in vogue  in British Columbia in respect to the  government of the lumber industry  that many of the cither provinces had  been copying it. It had called forth  universal praise in fact, and its  features for the protection of forests  from fire and from depletion by other  means were most admirable.  The [Minister- of Lands referred to  the difficulty in procuring skilled and  experienced men for his department,  and answered criticisms to tho effect  that he had employed Americans by  proving that only two Americans held  situations on the staff, which numbered several hundred.  GENERAL NEWS  Tho division on the naval.resolution  took place in the House of Commons  on Thursday and passed by a. majority  of 17. Col. H. H. McLean, a New  Brunswick Liberal, vote"!! with the  Government.  Hon. Geo. E. Foster was banquetted  in Vancouver on Saturday night last  on his way to Australia to negotiate a  trade agreement with the governments  of Australia and New Zealand.

In'  eastern Canada  much   of  the  success,  which has attended operations in  the,  Cobalt and Porcupine camps  has been  due to tin* ��������� efforts . of  the   milling  exchanges which made it  their business  ���������to exercise some oversight  in   connection with  now flotations   and see that  " concerns wliich  were disposed  to misrepresent   in   their   prospectuses and  advertisements    were   properly  dealt  with.     Vancouver  has  a   mining  exchange  but  nevertheless   the  rankest  outsiders have been able to go in there  with the.  most ridiculous  statements  ami small investors who  should   have  had some protection were   mercilessly  fleeced, out of their  hard  earned savings.     The  Steamboat  fiasco  of  two  "'years ago did not reflect  much  credit  on the   Vancouver mining  exchanges,  some of the   members  of  whom  were  'right into   tho game  with  the  other  exploiters.      And   again   we have had  another   example   recently    when    a  properey that was worth fifty Steamboats   was made ridiculous   by a practically unknown a d venturer   and not  a finger was  raised   by any  mining  exchange   to give the public  warning.  Had  it not   been    that   there   w-.is   a  newspaper in Vancouver imbued with  a sufficient sense of  its  responsibility  to the public  to do  a little  investigation on its own account and to act on  the information  obtained, the  individual would have got oil* with  a  much  larger-amount of swag  than ho did.  "What is needed  is  that local  mining  evchanges should   purge    their   own  ranks   of   members    who   have   any  sympathy with get-rich-quick men  or  their methods, and that they work  in  conjunction with the newspapers and  with the  Mines  Depatment   and the  Department   of Justice,   as    the   exchanges  in  Toronto  wore   known   to  do, and whenever  any of these adventurers  appear- on   the scene,  lose  no  time   in   placing   them    where   they  ought to be.    Of the millions  that are  paid yearly in dividends from Cobalt  camp   a most pleasing feature of the  situation  is that a large percentage of  it goes to the small  stockholders  who  havo invested their savings in rolinble  Feb <l  10  11  12  13  14  :"1.*5     ,,    -.

The visitors  were, much impressed by the paving  and other street improvements in the  city and spent a profitable day visiting  the Asylum Colony farm, listening to  expert addresses and being entertained  at dinner by the city council.  A well reasoned plea for civic planning was "made by Mr. J. W. Blackman,  the city engineer- of New Westminster,  who showed what great opportunities  were being missed in the west, of  building beautiful cities to make the  the most of their beautiful surroundings.

The.V. .V. & E. anil the K.V.R. still  li.-tve outstanding engineering difficulties and disputes to settle. To that  end chief engineer ,T. PI. Kennedy was  up the valley last' week and he has  recently been in Hope with K. V. Tt.  engineers ende.-i.voririg to tie up the  two surveys there.  Mr. H. H. ITohhs, manager of the  Bank of B.N.A., is going to get his  holidays and will leave for- Ontario on  a six wei-Ks' trip next wi-ck. He  expects that/Mr. O. P. Dalton of the  Vancouver hranch, who is to relieve  him, will lie in on Monday next or  Tuesday at the farthest,  A little uncertainty was felt as to  safety of Danny McLaughlin who has  riot been seen for about a month or  more and who is thought to be up in  his cabin on the mountain. There, is  no other- house within miles of him'  and the snow is very deep on the  mountain. Constable Sproule was  told ot it and niade arrangeiiients for  John Martin to go in on snowshoes  and see whether he was all right. Less  fear was entertained when it became  known that he was well supplied with  provisions which were hauled up to  his cabin early in the winter.  More men are employed at the  Niekel Plate mine at the present time  than have been working at this time  of the year in any previous year.  The present prayer ��������� plant is being  strained to its very utmost to provide  power to keep all the work'going that  thev now have in hand.  A new cable was taken up the  gravity tram a few days ago and will  replace the one now in use. The  management never take any chances  in running a cable a single day after  there is any ground for suspicion that  it may not be equal to any strain that  may be required of it.  Much ice accumulated in the flume  during the long steady winter weather  that there, has been since winter first  set in early in December, and this was  further accentuated chii-mg*" ttfe"tiT-st  two weeks in February when the  severest weather of the winter was  experienced. So badly filled up with  ice had the .Hume become that a. force,  of men were put on to chop it out and  the mild weather which came in at  the end of last week was most  opportune.  A hard times masquerade carnival  was arranged for Monday night on the  rink but the.mild .weather, made the  ice unfit*to go on and the event had to  be postponed.. If the .temperature  goes down again as promised by  weatherman. Foster the affair will  doubtless come off later.  Hedley hockeyists would be iii  rather poor- shape at present to tackle  any other team. There has nob been  a practice since the match with  Princeton. Another match with  Iveremeos was on the boards for. the  end of last week but the mild weather  and the difficulty of getting the. team  together were both of them live factors  in preventing it coming off.  Frank M. Dallam, sr., is taking a  holiday on the coast and writes of his  tiip to the Oroville Gazette, which is  under the capable management of  Frank M. Dallam, jr., in   his absence.  After unmercifully belaboring the  peripatetic real estate, vendors Col.  Lowery has at last succumbed to the  subtle influence for in the last issue of  the Ledge he announced a hind- boom  shortly in the vicinity of Green wood.  Now is.it to be an urban subdivision,  Colonel ?  When Constable Sproule was in  Kamloops recently he went out to the  Old Men's Home and saw John Ashe  and Herman Zibler. Ashe was in  good health arrd quite contented, but  Zibler was in rather a bad way. He  had recently had a stioke of paralysis  and was quite helpless and his memory  was so far gone that he could scarcely  recognize Mr. Sproule.  Chas. E. Wilson representing , P.  Burns & Co. was in town last week.  During the past . few years he has  made the Vernon branch of the business his headquarters.  Jack Raitor, G. N. R. agent, made a  business trip to Spokane last week.  and   he    was    relieved    by    W.   G.  LIQUOR LICENCE ACT  (SECTION 17)  NOTICE is hereby ffiven that on tho Twenty-  Third day of February next application  will he made to tho .Superintendent of Provincial Police for tlie transfer of the licence for  tho sale of liquor by retail in and upon tho  premises known as tho Groat Northern Hotel,  situate atHcdloy, Provincoof British Columbia  from E.

They were so  used to tackling the snowdrifts .between Penticton and Keremeos that  the little bit of snow between here ,-ind  Keremeos did not bother them a whit.  John Jackson took possession of the  Great Northern Hotel on Monday.  Having the old Hackney house under-  h-ase'.as well which",will provide rooms  for many of tho hoarders who would  prefer that to rooms on the upper Hat  of the Great Northern, he will be in  position to accommodate a much  larger trade than was possible in the  New Zealand.  The public should know by, this time  that it is useless to send annonymous  correspondence -to'this paper for it  will not be published. In fact it is not  often that a single word of it will even  be read by the editor beforo it lands in  the waste paper basket, i'or the anonymous signature is enough to damn it  forthwith.. If anybody has any real  greivance that concerns the public and  hasn't sand enough in him to discuss  it over his own signature he should at  least have sense enough to disclose his  identity to the editor. The day is  happily fast passing when any journal  of standing will longer countenance  the methods which have too often  disgraced journalism in the past.  P. H. Parsons, formerly of Olalla, is  now with the B.C. Copper Co. on  Copper Mountain. He went up last  week to begin work.  In the second egg-laying contest  which is now being conducted under  the auspices of the Department of  Agriculture of the British Columbia  Provincial Government and is this  time held at Victoria, the white leghorns have again moved up to their  place at the top. The first month's  lecoid in this second contest shows  pen No. 17 at the head of the list with  111 eggs and every place after that up  to the 11th is also filled by white leghorns when pen No. 2 (Anconas) takes  11th place with -10 eggs. Then follow  white leghorns again for several more  places before anyother breed gets into  the list. Apparently a good..hen, like  a good man, can't be kept down.  ,. From an item appearing in last  week's Star it looks as if some print-  shop is going to get. stung on a  telephone directory .unless everybody  is wary. The Gazette had a narrow  escape in only stipulating for forty  per .cent, advance before the,..work  would be taken in hand. Proper  prudence would have made it at least  eighty-five. 7.      ���������  The rancher who goes  in for  horse  raising would do well to confine openv  tions more to the heavier classes.   The  experience   of   the   ranchers   of    the.  lower valley who bought a high-priced  well-bred coach stallion   a few  years  ago has not; been encouraging.    They  paid $.3600.for him andtat jthe. auction  sale held a couple of weeks ago to  dispose of hiin he was. knocked down  tp  W.   J,   Manery r for,.$375.    When   he  was   bought  there   was   not   another  good   horse   in   the whole district to  breed to, but the  very next year the  country was full  of them.    It is not  the same in   this  country  with   horse  breeding, as   in   the east,  and   brood  mares are  not taken  care of in  the  way   that   farriiers   look   after   their  animals   in    the    eastern    provinces.  Here   they   are   turned; out   on   the  ranges  and  in   breeding, the r-isk all  comes on   the  owner of  the stallion.  Another  thing  that told  against the  success  of the   undertaking was   the  low caste character of the mares being  bred which in   the   majority of  cases  were   cayeuse   pure   simple,  and   the  progeny from a light horse lacked  the  style necessary to bring the price for  that class of horse.    Had  the  stallion  been   a   Clydesdale   or Shire a more  profitable animal would have resulted.  To improve the character of the brood  mares is the first essential.  welcome- visitor in Hedley this week.

Miss  Bruce, there is no doubt, will return  here after she has had a number of  months at home. At all events whenever she does return she will be heartily welcomed by her many friends. In  the meantime we join with all in  wishing her good luck and a safe trip  across the ocean.  Everybody   welcome,  this is an open meeting.  Now is the time to get together and  organize for the coining summer.  There will no doubt be. baseball and  lacrosse. It is no use trying to get  men together on the spur of the  moment.'. There was no organization  last year and things were punk. No  iniiri knew what the other was to' do  until on the field. Let's all get  together���������the material' is here right  enough. Sports run right are a. credit  and a boost for any town. We must  try and get the help of all the fruitgrowers around the district: to help  out, and there is no doubt they will  -when they see things run on sporting  and business principle.
