The work of the session is well advanced 'and prorogation is coining in  sight. Although the opposition aim  tofuiiuotain a continuous fire, on every  and all matters that come up the matter they have to present in the way of  criticim is.necessity attenuated.and at  times it becomes painfully so. So much  of their energy has been expended on  theiiiiner'sstrikeatNanainro that their  attention to other affairs has been in a  corresponding degree lacking.  The budget speech delivered by Hon.  Price Ellison, Minister of Finance, was  tinged with the requisite amount of  cheery optimism to make more palatable the presentation of the less  acceptable fact that the existing  world-wide money tightness had  materially lessened the provincial  revenue's. The. minister introduced  the Loan Act by which it is proposed  to borrow ten millions to take care of  maturing loans and permit public  works togo on at somewhat diminished pace to that which has been possible throughout the fat years, but  nevertheless to go on, for it maintained that posterity will be all the  better olf to permit development of  provincial resources go forward at the  present time, even if posterity will  have,to finance a little on their own  account to meet the loans when they  conic due. Debt he claimed was not  an unmixed evil and in many cases a  positive good when it incited to redoubled effort which must invariably go  hand in hand with progress.  Parker 'Williams contributed to the  debate but his contribution was more  amusing than illuminating as he  reasoned from the Minister's premise  that if debt was a good thing bankruptcy was the ideal condition.  Premier McBride spoke at length on  both the budget debate and the Loan  Bill and '"'made 'very clear to the House  the sound business merits of the meas-  RANK JUDGMENT OVERRULED  Workman  Injured  on Sunday Not to be  Deprived of Compensation  DAM SHAPING UP WELL  Vancouver, B. C. Feb. 18th.--Holding that Judge Grant was wrong in  law in his decision that the dependents  of Stephen Placas were not entitled to  compensation because bis death occurred while he was illegally'employeil  orr Sunday, Mr-. Justice Gregory today  directed that the case should go back  to His Honor to be disposed of on the  merits.  As detailed in the press some weeks-  ago, Mr. Charles George Major-, official  administrator for-the County of New  Westminster, was the plaintiff irr arbitration proceedings under the Workmen's Compensation Act, wherein an  award was sought because of the death  of Placas, who was employed in construction work on tho Great Northern  Railway under Mr. J. W. Stewart, one  of the contractors. Placas was killed  on ii Sunday, and Judge Grant held  that, under the Lord's Day Act, his  employment was an illegal one, us it  did not come under the exceptions of  the work of charity or necessity.  Mr. Douglas, on behalf of Mr. Major,  made application in Supreme Court  Chambers today to have the judgment  set aside. The application was opposed bv Mr-. W. II. D. Ladner.

All  the foundation aud aprons of. the eastern half are completed'with reinforced  concrete; the forms of five of the nine  piers are in place arid the bottoms of  all of them for -several feet above the  foundation have been filled willi concrete. The track which served for the  lower part of the piers has been raised  so iis "to enable the cement ears to  dump in at the top of the piers while  some, five or six feet below it another  track is provided for delivery of the  boulders and a good supply of these  has been hauled to a convenient place  for handling.  Effort will be made to get in at least  "tie more pier and possibly a second  between the end of the present works  and the channel in which the stream  now flows, and excavation for that  purpose is already under way. A start  has also been made at excavation on  the west end, iind by the time that is  done and the west end abutment  completed, everything will be in readiness to turn the stream over on the  completed east half.  to Amended Route Plans of Kettle Valley Ry.

If wo turn to the question of concrete results in cold hard cash from  the year's operations, it will be seen  from the table of dividend returns  aggregating .*j*2,3S0,131 that an even  more giatifying state of affairs exists.  Briefly, the dividends paid ' by tho  principal operating mines in British  Columbia aggregate a total for 1913  more than double that of 1912. This  is tho one great test of successful progress and development���������that the man  who put his money in judiciously-  handled British Columbia mines should  be assured of satisfactory returns on  his investment���������and it is doubly gratifying and doubly significant that such  ii year as that now closing should be  the one in which this test has been so  successfully borne by our mines.���������B.C.  Mining Exchange.  Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 20th.���������Three  passengers on the Great Northern express were murdered in the day coach  in a fight with two bandits near  Samish station to-night at 7:25. The  murdered'men are H. JR. Adkinson,  automobile sidesman, of this city;  Thomas F. Wadsworth, Canadian  Pacific railway conductor, who was a  passenger, residing on Twenty-Third  avenue. South Vancouver-; iind R. L.  Lee, of Bremerton. '.':���������'  After shooting the three men. who  resisted them, the bandits rifled the  pockets of several terror-strickempas-  sengers, securing $50 before dropping  oil'the train as it slowed down in response to an emergency,signal.  According to the statement of passengers    tind  members   of   the   train  crew,   the two  hold-up 'men -boarded  the  train at  Burlington, taking seats  in   the rear of  the smoker.     Shortly  after leaving  that place they entered  the day coach, shooting twice into the  roof of the car,   commanding  all   to  throw up their hands. Both were men  of aveiuge  height,   but   one   was of  slighter  build,  and were disguised by  handkerchiefs covering the lower part  of their faces.    The heavier of the two  went.to the end of the coach where he  was attacked by three men, who were  sitting together there.    They knocked  him down and were securing him when  his   companion   walked    deliberately  down the aisle and taking careful aim  shot   Adkinson   through    the   heart.  Conductor C. W.   Waldron   instantly  cut off the  car and the  train slowed  down  coining to  a halt  ne'iir-  Samish  station.     The   bodies   were   brought  to Bellingham,   where a train was immediately made up and was despatched- to Samish  loaded  with a sheriff's  posse.  Wadsworth was on a visit to his  wife and family, who .-ire visiting in  California, for the benefit of Mrs.  W.idsworth's health. His aged mother  resides in South Vancouver. When  informed of the tragedy to-night she  collapsed and is in a critical condition.  Adkinson, formerly a contractor-, recently formed the Vancouver Rubber  Tire company. He is married and has  three children. His wife was waiting  for his return sit the station here.  They live on Seventeenth avenue.  It is understood that the railway has  offered $5,000 reward.  On account of the wildness of the  surrounding country little hope is held  out for the capture of the outlaws. It  is thought they have taken a boat and  gone to the San Juan islands. The  hold-up took place on the edge of  Bellingham Bay.  Quebec, Que., Feb. 18th.���������Through  what appears to have been a blunder,  passengers on the incoming Grand  Trunk Railway express this morning  narrowly escaped death by a dynamite  explosion at-St' Romuald, between  eight and nine o'clock, and while-no  fatalities occurred, some of the passengers on the first-class car were severely cut about their faces and bodies and  sustained nervous shocks through be  iny; struck by flying glass and rocks.  The   express  was   two   hours   late.  Construction work on apiece of double  track  for the I. C. R. is. tinder way at  St. Romuald, and it would appear that  ii fuse for a 'dynamite blast was lighted   by  the   construction   gang" just at  the time the G.T.P. express  was near-  St. Romuald.   The gang foreman sent  ;i man   up the line  ashore distance to  flag the Grand Trunk train, but it had  got  too close  to the scene of the proposed blast before it .was flagged.   The  train ..was stopped in front of the scene  of the operations  and the  blast went  off.     Every window in one side of the  first-class car was shattered by flying  rock, .and some of the passengers were  knocked clown  by the force of the explosion  and  cut about  the face iind  b ulj' by flying rock and window glass.  Among the passengers, injured were  Mr. John Parker, inspector of schools,  who was cut about the hands and face  and  Mr.  Swallow,   of St. Giles,   who  was cut on the face and arms.  There were twelve or fourteen passengers in the first-class cars, and that  some were not killed-'was miraculous,  as the cars got the full force of the  explosion, and part of the side of one  ear was toin out and pieces hurled in  all directions.  The eifoi ts made in this valley to  secure the necessary assent of the Provincial iind Dominion Houses have  borne fruit. The l-esolution sent in  from Hedley to Premier McBride ancc.  to L. W. Shatford. M. P. P. were  promptly acknowledged by both and  Mr. Shatford went to work .on it with  ii will.  * Good progress was made at Victoria  where the Premier was sympathetic  and Mi*. Shatford went to Ottawa CO  push the matter' there.  The following telegrams from his  secretary in Vancouver show the suc-  Ui.'ss and offers another instance of  how fortunate the people in this part  of the province arc in their representatives for the Legislature and the  Commons:  Vancouver. Feb. 20th, 1914.  G. P. .lones, Esq.  Hedley, B. 0.  "Further reference to resolution;  Mr. Shatfoid went east iind won't be  back for week, dealing with Kettle  Valley matter "at Ottawa. While there  be feels satisfactory arrangements will  lie completed .-it Victoria and telegraphed to say that if you think advisable to do si*, send delegation and I  will iirrange meeting with Premier.

Shatford, Toronto, in which he requests nie to notify you that Minister of Railways, Ottawa, has approved route map Kettle  Valley via Princeton.  J. D. Reams, Secretary.  FITTING RECOGNITION  "SI   MONUMENTUM     INQUIRIS"  A  Forty Million   Dollar  Potlatch���������The  Tragedy of Commission's Report  Granby has declined a  dividend of  IJ per cent, payable March 10th, 1914.  Tlie Vernon News in referring to the  report of .the Commission on the cost;  of the National Transcontinental  says:  "What does the country get for this  carnival of waste and crookedness?  Well, wc get a road which Sir Wilfred  Laurier first said would cost $13,-  000,000. Mr. Fielding afterwards  increased this estimate by about  $50,000,000. Now we find that by  1922, when the G. T. P. is to assume  payments of interest on cost of construction���������provided it does not repudiate its obligations in this respect  ���������the country will have paid out the  enormous sum of $234,651,521.  "Sir* Wilfrid Laurier once said that  the Grand Trunk Pacific would be  his best monument. We wonder if  he would be so willing now to accept  it as a memorial."  The 'members of the  Keremeos Liberal-Conservative  Association  are   to  be congratulated   on their resolve  to  tender a  public banquet  in   the near  future,   to L. W. Shatford. M.P.P.     If  there   is   any   representative   in   the  whole legislature of this province who  deserves  recognition  at the  hands of  the electors for ceaseless effort in their  behalf, it is Mr. Shatfoid.    It made no  difference  to him whether the elector  was  a supporter  or  an   opponent���������if,  the thing asked for was within reason  or in any way in the public interest, it  had  his immediate attention,   and for  that reason,  if for nobtner,'  it'would  be a-disappointment to  many  if the  affair  were to be  given even the semblance of exclusiveness or any attempt  made to confine it tonne party;'for we  are sure  that there  are many  in  the  riding on the opposide side of politics  from Air. Shatford who would nevertheless  be glad of the  opportunity to  attend by way of showing their appreciation  of the straightforward  honorable course he hasalwayspursued. This  is now the twelfth session of the legislature in which he has sat its representative of the Similkameen riding, and  so great has been the change wrought-  in the riding in   that time in   the way  of public improvements that many of  the bridle paths  that then   passed, as  public highways are today unrecognizable in the broad and smooth thoroughfares that have been given residents of  the riding for public  traffic.    A good  live  committee of representative electors of the fruit town   of  the  vallcy  have  the.  matter in  hand,  and   they  will   doubtless   soon   have   some   announcement to make as to details. We  bespeak for them the  heartiest co-operation  from  residents  of the   valley  generally,   and again  we congratulate  the Liberal-Conservatives of Keremeos  on   taking  the  lead   in a  recognition  which is long overdue in every part of  the riding.  PEACE AND WAR  London, Feb. ISth.���������A woman, supposedly a suffragette, attacked and  knocked down Lord Wear-dale, head  of the British Peace Centenary Commission, with ii dog whip as he stood  on the platform at Euston station today. Spectator's over-powered her iind  she was arrested. It is believed she  mistook Wear dale for Premier Asquith.

While there has been  a number of unemployed, yet in 'comparison with the United States this  country has escaped thisevil to a great  extent. The .Employment Bureau  Society for improving the condition of  the Poor, in New York, 'says.'that a  .conservative, estimate of the unemployed in that city is 331,000. The  conditions are the worst since 1907-  lSJOS.  Of the total unemployed, 1-10,000  were unskilled labourers. The building tr.-i.des e.anie next, with '80,00. Then  followed: Longshoremen, IS'000; cloak  iind suit makers, 19,000; waiters. (3,50!):  tailors anil pressors. 0,001): clerks, bookkeepers iind accountants, o.UOO; mechanics. KoOO; boatmen, bargemen anil  sailors. -1,200: barbers, 3,800; drivers,  3,000; engineers iind firemen, 3,000, and  other trades in smaller proportion.  VIVK AM) A HALF 1*K1{- C-KXT  Thus in New. York the unemployed  is oh par cent, of'the total population.  Libeiiils in drawing their picture of  gloomy conditions in Canada did not  dare make comparisons with the  United .States or their argument would  have been at once disproved. They  pointed particularly to Vancouver and  Toronto .-is scenes of armies of unemployed. Statistics show 2.500 unemployed in Vancouver iind 8,000 in Toronto, or 1.6*6 per cent, of the total  population in the former city and two  per cent, iir the latter. Compare this  with New York's 5i per cent, and in  spite of Sir Wilfrid aiid his followers'  knocks at this country Canadians  should feel proud at the present state  of affairs when compared with the  United States under similar conditions.

Before an announcement of .any kind  had been   made by  the Premier as to the lines upon which  redistribution   was ' to   be   made,   Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier interposed   with the  suggestion that the carving  should be  done by a committee of seven, as he  had  done   himself on the  occasion of  the last Redistribution Bill, the committee being made up of four government supporters and three opposition.

But  not all know exactly why and  how It pays and why It continues to pay continuous advertisers.  It pays because of the reputation the advertisers have  made for telling the truth, for  fair dealing and for business  honesty. IT IS WICKED TO  LIE, AND IT IS ALSO  FOOLISH. Just think how  extremely foolish it would be  to pay for advertising space  In which to spread falsehoods.  Merchants know that their  reputations for truthfulness  in the advertisements is their  best business asset They  know that to make their advertising valuable It must be  believed; it must be truthful day after day, week after  week, month after month.  Read the advertisements in  this paper closely and remember that back of every statement Is the reputation of a  leading merchant, a reputation he has spent years hi acquiring and which bo will  guard closely.

The .Hedley hockey team intended  going to Princeton on'Monday to play  a game between trains with .the  Princeton team, but a phone message  received a few minutes before they  were to start explained that the ice  was not in shape and. the condition it  was in made it certain that any attempt to play a hockey match on it,  would in all probability destroy it for-  i'or the balance of the season.  Much concern is felt in town this  week owing to the illness of E. 13.  Burr, blacksmith, from blood poisoning in his left arm. The trouble came  from ii mere scratch received at his  work in the shop. Dr. McEwen found  it necessary to open the arm in several places. The case is aggravated  by a weak heart which has been giving, hi in trouble at intervals for some  time.

The thing sounds familiar and  reminds Iledleyites of a somewhat  similar case. It would seem they  have ii funny way of administering  their laws over the border1. If there  is not enough ground to work on in  the Ciise of suspects they should be  left alone, and if there is occasion to  iirrest ii man, those responsible for it  should be in a position to go .ahead  with it or else keep quiet. The Oroville Gazette thus refers to the present  instance :  ".T.L. Harper, so well known throughout the state as a mine operator; who  is now developing a property on Krng-  er mountain, near Oroville arrived in  town from Spokane Tuesday,   and  he  hardly had time to register before   be  was  placed  under arrest  by  Deputy  Sheiill* Carrel, on a, warrant iind  irir  structions .from Spokane.  Mr. Harper  and the officer started for Conconully  Wednesday morning, but only  went  as far as Riverside, when word was re:  ceived to hold Mr.  Harper at Oroville.  This arresting  of Mr-.   "Harper' every  few days has degenerated  into a system of petty persecution by some personal enemy.- On the same charge, not  of personally  using money  belonging  toothers  but of transfer-ruga sum  of  money from one mining company  to  another, the gentleman   has been hailed into court twice before, an'd in both  ciises, as soon as the judges   heard the  testimony, the case has been dismissed.  The charge is  revamped for the purpose of-harassing and  nullifying any  efforts that Mr. Harper may  make to  engage in  the mining  business in the  west.    So   far  no   criminal  act   has  been'established  against him,  and   if  he is permitted to carry but his plans  it- would not be long  before he  would  be in a position to meet every financial  obligation.

GASOLINE FROM NATURAL  GAS IN ALBERTA?  The time to harvest ice is when you  can get it, and that rule is being followed at the present time in Hedley.  A little has been cut and put up during the past week iind those who need  ib are making the most of their time.  The only place it is procurable is a  little here and there a long the shore  which rarely exceeds six inches in  thickness and not of the best quality,  but it is at least cool and may answer  the purpose. Those who'may think of  getting better, are taking a big risk of  getting none at all.  A lot of the "hard times"  reports  have   to be taken  with a grain of salt  and appear to be largely the result of  habit.    Often circumstances arise that  don't jibe  very well  with   the   hard  times  idea and  one of these  was seen  in  Hedley lately   when  a rcpresenta  live of an electric  manufacturing concern stilted that his company were two  years behind in their orders  and were  doing their* best to catch  up.    Ibis  to  be hoped that this may riot del.-iy  un  duly the time for completing the electrical installations of the  new  power  plant at Hedley.  The hockey teams'of the'Boundary  have for two or three years past been  edging towards professionalism, but  this year they went the whole hog  and gave the district such a dose of  professionalism as it is hoped will cure  them from this particular brand of  fatuity for- many.'moons to come.  Grand Forks and Phoenix are said to  have struck- the liveliest gait at it,  with Greenwood a lusty tail-ender;  arid  curious to relate  thab although  A few months ago a ''white oil" was  struck in an oil well at Black Diamond  neiir Okotoks. Alberta. It consisted  largely of gasoline of such purity that  ib has been successfully used in its raw  state for driving an automobile. At  a higher horizon in this well,* a flow  of 2,000,000 cubic f est of gas. per- day  wits obtained..  There are two hundred plants in the  United States  making gasoline  from  natural gas.   The yield is  determined  largely by the quantity of liquid paraffin vapours in the  permanent gases,  and is further alfected by the temperature conditions in   the.  well,   the gasoline content of the oil, and the intim-  ateness of contact between the oil iind  gas. Such rapid expansion of gas from  a casing head has been known to occur  as  to cause a heavy condensation   of  vapours at the point of egress.-  .   The above consideration suggest that  the possibility  of manufacturing gas-  olinefrom the natural gas,which occurs  in such enormous 'quantities in Alberta  is a matter well worthy of investigation.    There would  undoubtedly be a  large rnarkebfor the gasolineproduced,  iind after extinction   the residual gas  would be rich in methane and ethane  iind have a high heating value.

This should  be interesting to .'ill fruit growers and  it will be greatly to their benefit to  attend.  Mrs. Joe. Armstrong of Chopaeo arrived hack to the valley hist Friday  after spending nearly'three months in  .the'state of Indiana visiting her old  home. Although she had a pleasant  time with her relatives whom she had  not seen for-a number of years, she  says there is nothing like the good old  Similkumeen valley and is delighted  to be home once more.  W. ,T. Armstrong arrived from Penticton on Friday the 20th with a  couple of men whom he took down to  Similkameen on Saturday and proceeded to go right to work on his properly on the west side of the river. This  resumption of work after such a short  lay off was on account of the high  grade ore Liirsen iind McCorniack  brought out with them when they  shut down temporarily hist week.  The parcel post regulations in regard to the twenty mile radius from  this office will cover nine offices, namely Keremeos Centre, Kuleden, Allan  Grove, Okuungan Fulls, "White Lake,  Marrorr Lake, Fairview, Hedley and  Similkameen.

Clark  of Green  Mountain came in on Saturday's train  from   the   south.      For   a   couplu   of  months  they have  been  in southern  California,    visiting    Pasadena,   San  Diego,  Los Angeles and other cities.  California of late has experienced some  bud storms and some of the streets in  Los Angeles were under six feet of  water. ' After staying over the week  end with their daughter they took the  mail stage out to the  ranch on Monday.     They, as others, who have been  away on vacations,  love to come back  to their mountain home.  The dance given by Mrs. Daly in  the Town hall last Friday stands out  as one of the most successful evenings  had in the hall. Mrs. Daly's fi iends  are many and they showed their appreciation by answering her kiiid in  vitation of hist week by their presence.  The evening was a continual round of  merriment. At twelve o'clock a dainty  supper was served after which the  dancing continued to the best of music,  iind although a few couples left after  one o'clock it was not until nearly six-  o'clock that the "Home Sweet Home"  waltz was played.  Recenth' the residents of the Similkameen Valley had tangible evidence  of what concerted action on their part  could do in the restoration of the  daily train service. Last week tliey  had still further evidence in the results obtained by further joint action  on the part of the Boards of Trade of  Princeton, Hedley iind Keremeos.  The location of the missing link of the  Kettle "Valley Ry. route between  Osprey Lake and the summit of the  Hope Mountain was up for final settlement iind interested parties were  pulling the wires to have the line  located via Aspen Grove passing up  the Similkameen entirely. A prompt  and vigorous protest from the above  mentioned of boards trade was made  and the result is indicated by the following wire received by the Keremeos  Board of Trade'in reply to their message to Mr. Shatford. "Vancouver B.  C. Feb. 20th. J. J. Armstrong, Keremeos  i"5. C.

In addition to the  benefit of visits from instructors in  domestic science, the programmes forthe local meetings are both interesting  iind profitable and the ladies from  Hedley and other points in the valley  could  not do   better than   to take ad-  ts-  vantage of the opportunity to become  connected with  it.

With a view to bringing together  infoi million concerning the work of  tlie federal and provincialDepartments  of Agriculture there has been commenced the publication of the Agriculture Giizette Of Canada, the first  number of which has just now made  its appearance.  While this hragazino is edited and  published at Ottawa its value is greatly  increased by the co-operation of the  officials of the Provincial Depart merits.  The January number is evidently  preparatory for what is to follow, as  it is devoted chiefly, to accounts of  the organization and development  of the several departments of Agriculture in Canada and statements of  appropriations by which they are  enabled to carry on their, work. It  contains also the full text of the  Agriculture Instruction Act, the  agreement with each of the provinces  and a .statement of the appropriations  under the Act for the present year  and the work made possible thereby.  In his "Foreword", the-Honourable  Miirtin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, points out that the magazine is  not to enter into general circulation  but is to supply the press iind those  engaged in agricultural work with  fiicts and information relating to the  educational and scientific side of Agriculture To these it is supplied free.  For others a small additional number  of copies will be printed from month  to month, for which ten cents per  copy or one dollar per year will be  charged.  The magazine, wliich is clothed in a  dignified cover-, presents a very attractive appearance, being printed on high  class, coated paper*, which does full  credit to the photo engravings of tlie  Dominion and Provincial Ministers of  Agriculture that appear in the first  number.  GENERAL NEWS  The rebels in Mexico have, executed  a British subject and there is likely to  be trouble over it.  The British war office has postponed!  until 1915 application of the Bisley  rules which would bar the Canadian  rifle from participation in the competitions. In view of this it is of  course expected that a Canadian team  will again compete this year.  Exportation of petroleum from Canada will only be prohibited in case of  national necessity. This fact was  made plain "by tho Hon. J. D. Reid,  Minister of Customs.  The British Columbia budget speech  wiis delivered in the House last week  by Hon. Price Ellison, Minister of  Finance and was a timely production  which set forth the financial standing  of the province at date and had the  proper blending of optimism arid  caution.
