Estimates Furnished on any Electrical Project for Powek or Light  On Tuesday 'morning between 5 and  G o'clock, nearly all our citizens -.who  had not previously been  aroused liy  means   of   their  alarm  clocks,   were  awakened from sleep by the shaking  of their houses.    Some attributed it to  a sudden gust of wind but were at a  loss to account foi\.the fact that there  didnot seem to be any. wind at the  time. , The instances were very few  where people had been> able to rsleep  through it, and in one case stove-pipes  were disconnected.      The   mountains  around seem to have, been undisturbed  and no rock slides are known to have  occurred  anywhere   in   the  vicinity.  The Similkmneen river continued to  run in the same old channel, and,  on  enquiry at the office of the Daly deduction Co., no harm had been done  about the works,  the   masonry   and  cement .foundations   being all intact.  Mr.   Lamb   says  that all  the foundations of the various machines in the  power house were all right but the  foundations of tlie other kind of  beds  were decidedly unsteady.  A curious feature of the shock was  that while it was sufficiently violent  to awaken almost everyone, those who  were up and going about did not take  much notice of it. '  The shock seems to have been pretty  "general over'the interior of the province, but where the centre of the disturbance is to be located is a matter  that Prof. John Milne and his seismo-  graphic stations will have to determine.

Then, thrilling to the harp's gay bound,  So sweetly rung each vaulted wall,  And echoed light the dancers' bound,  As mirth and music cheered the hall.  ���������CA1JY0W O'ASTLH  The gayest social event that has occurred at any time in Hedley was that  of the Hospital Ball, held on the evening of the 27th December in the upper  storey of the new departmental store  building of Shatfords, Limited.   '  Never on any former occasion was  there such a ready and general response���������a circumstance due no doubt  Kinnon and Miss McKinnon, Mr. and  Mrs. Heruory, Mrs. Henderson, Mr.  and Mrs. Winkler, Mr. and Mrs.Peterson, Mrs. P.

Burr, Mr. and, Mrs. Wynne, Mr.  and Mrs. Shelder, Miss Greenhill, Miss  Megraw, Miss Stott,* Mr. and Mrs.  Arnott, Miss Brown, Miss Johns, Mrs.  Myerlioif a nd Mrs McArthur.  In all, it is claimed that over two  hundred - guests were present, there  being some sixty couples in the grand  inarch alone, which was headed, by  Mr. L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., and  Mrs. Shatford.  ��������� To adequately describe the brilliancy  of the scene when the ball was in full  swing would require inspiration from  twinkling  ORE STRUCK IN   BIG   TUNNEL.

The solution of the transportation  difficulty is not the only benefit to be  derived from securing railway connection. Occasionally the railway cuttings through a mineral country uncover ore bodies that prospectors have  searched for in vain for years. This  apparently has happened down here  in ��������� the Siinilkameen in the big 1800  foot tunnel which the V. V. & E. contractors are driving in the construction  of their lines ��������� The Loomis Prospector  has. the" following item-of news concerning it:  "Julius Brechlin and Paul Shultz  are interested in two groups of claims  located on both sides of the Siinilkameen river at Rich Bar. On the south  side of the river the claims held by  Messrs. Brechlin and Shultz are directly across the big railroad tunnel now  under construction. For the second  time has this railroad grade exposed  fine mineral lands, for from this railroad tunnel the workmen are now  taking ore with the muck, or have  been, almost solid ore, and much of it  is the product of the ledges on the  Brechlin-Shultz holdings. This tunnel is cutting through the ore body at  a-depth of 100 feet, and is proving the  property to be a mine, an extent of  accidental development that would  have cost the owners hundreds of  dollars and months of labor."

Hi  Hi  Hi  VHi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  There was some squabbling among  local   Chinks  last week,  which   took  place at Sam Lee's washee house and  Bow Kee, .who was in the scrap,  got  thumped.    The matter was ventilated  in a Chinese Court which  they held  among' themselves  and   was  settled  there.    It is known that gambling is  carried, on among them to a very great  extent and that rows are by no means  uncommon.    Since they are so loth to  contribute revenue to the Province by  appealing to the provincial law, a, raid  oh their dens might not come amiss to  make them come up with a little more  than   the  three dollars revenue  tax.  They enjoy the protection of the civil  law in this country and should pay  their share.     If German residents of  Canada were to ignore the civil law of  the   land   and hold a   local   German  court    for   settling   their  differences  how long would such a. state of affairs  be tolerated? and why should Chinese  courts be allowed.  to the good cause behind it all���������for  Hedley was there en masse, scarcely  a household in the town being unrepresented by at least one or more members, and in maiiv cases whole.families  were there. Other points in the district also did nobly, guests coming long  distances to"attend.  It was a happy thought on the part  of the originators to secure for ballroom the use of the Shatford building,  which  gave over 2000 square feet of  excellent  floor for dancing,  and the  ball committee also made a lucky hit  in giving over to. the ladies of the town  the   responsibility   of   providing   the  supper.    The committee of ladies, of  which   Mrs.  Shatford  was chairman,  put in hard work and good judgment,  and  success   crowned   their efforts.  Next to them perhaps, was the decoration   committee.     The   extra   large  space to be adorned made this no light  task, and the brunt of it fell oii Messrs.  MacHaffie and Irwin, who put in most  of their spare time after, banking hours  and most of the day on Ohristmas in  beautifying the room,  Other members  of the committee also lent a hand in  providing evergreens  and  other  materials and in  arrangement of same.  The hospital idea was  most appropriately   maintained', throughout,   the  large red cross emblems and flags on  the walls offering a pleasing contrast  to   the.   other   decorations.     Fir and  cedar were liberally used, the former  in the construction of graceful arches  between the pillars down  the centre,  and the latter for wreaths around the  windows   and   doors;   but   the   most  artistic   effects were produced in the  arrangement of two cosy corners that  were much in demand all evening, and  a feature which added  both literally  and metaphorically to  the  brilliancy  of the scene was the electric lighting,  which, by  the .kindness of the  Daly  Reduction Co., was provided in abundance. The building was wired beforehand for permanent lighting, and this  enabled them to add extra lamps which  were arranged to produce some very  pretty effects.  Keremeos supplied the lion's share  of outside guests, there being Mrs.  W. H. Lowe, Miss Lowe, Mr. Charlie  Lowe, Mrs. Kirby and Miss Violet  Kirby, Miss Winnie Clark. Mrs. Elin-  hursfc, Mrs. Frank Kichtcr. Mr. Loudon, Messrs. Hans and William Rieh-  ter, Messrs. D. J. Innis, G. Gilchrist,  H. Tweedle, H. Knowles. Jas. McDou-  gall and Alex. Ford.

The gay costumes and graceful figures of the ladies and gallants  as feet swept round in the mazy dance  to the inspiring airs of the orchestra  made a picture of rare beauty and animation and gave evidence that times  are changing in the Siinilkameen, for  less than a decade ago a like function  would have been attended with aboriginal touches and with surroundings  of .a very different character.  The music (violin and piano) was  supplied by Messrs. Rrent and Bassett  of Okanagan Falls and the floor; manager oi' director of ceremonies was  Mr. Paul Brodhagen.  Mrs. Myerhoff", black silk waist with  black skirt.  Mrs. McArthur, black skirt and  white silk waist.  , The supper was excellent and bore  evidence of the bard work, good judgment and skilful cooking displayed.  The supper was served down stairs  in,the.north half of the new block.  It took three tables to accommodate  the guests and, from the covers laid,  fully two hundred were served. There  was abundance for all and a great deal  left over. The ladies are to be congratulated, on the excellent spread,  and the good management which had  evidently characterized their work.  ' What the net proceeds will be is not  definitely known but the Hospital'  committee' are well satisfied with the  outcome and the guests one and all  were satisfied with the entertainment.

'  On Monday night it began to look  as if Hedley was in for a touch of real .  romance' whiyi a youthful couple rode  into town on horseback and it became  known that they were eloping. There  were no foam covered chargers in close  pursuit, but shortly afterwards a phone  message came frpm Princrton felling  Constable Haynes that a\hali'-hreed  named Morrow, aged 22, and a girl  named Jamieson, also half-breed, aged  11, had skipped.out together-and that  (he horses which they rode did not  belong-to them. The constable was  instructed to take the man in custody  on a charge of horse stealing. This  the constable did, and all chances of a  real nice romantic escapade faded  away, to the intense disgust of all the  romantically inclined youths. <;  "Vyhat"a prosaic' lot''those Princeton  officers must be to turn an elopement  into a vulgar case of horse-stealing.  Horrible! If they had said that the  would-be bridegroom had called his  youthful affianced his pet, and they  had taken him up for pet-ty larceny,'  they might be forgiven, but to knock  all the poetry out of the affair by such  a rude cuff" was shocking taste.  The charge laid against the prospective groom by Mrs. Jamieson was that  of stealing two horses and her daughter. The case was to be. tried yester-  in Princeton.  day  COMING TO HEDLEY.  Mr.   W.   E.    Burritt,   Barrister,   Weds  Popular Young Lady in San Francisco  and will Arrive in  Hedley in a  Few  Days to   Open   Up a  Law. Office.  The Gazette reproduces from the  Province the following item of news,  taken originally from the San Francisco Examiner. Mr. Burritt is a  young Canadian barrister who formerly practised in Sudbury, Out., where  he was solicitor for the Toronto Bank.  He is making no mistake in casting  in his lot with Hedley. He conies well  recommended by business men in the  east, and Hedley will extend to him  and his bride a cordial welcome.  "The   wedding   of   Miss   Martha  Stuart Millar to Mr. William Edmund  Burritt  took place  last week  at the  home of the bride's mother, 1316 Green  street, San Francisco.   The bride, who  formerly lived in Vancouver, is a, sister  of Mrs. J. A. Russell of this city.    The  ceremony   was   performed    b\'   Rev.  George   G.   Eldredge,   pastor   of St.  John's Presbyterian Church, and none  but the relatives were bidden to witness it, owing to the recent death of  the bride's father,- Mr.  James Millar.  Mr.   Burritt is  a   Canadian   barrister  and ��������� a   member  of one of the most  prominent families of Toronto.     The  bride is  the  sister of  Mr.   James D.  Millar of San Francisco,  and was horn  in   Canada,,   but   has  resided  in San  Francisco for ten years, and has been  a popular and  prominent member of  the younger set.   There were no attendants at the wedding, and the bride  wore her going-away gown.    After a  wedding breakfast Mr. and Mrs. Burritt left to take the evening train for  the northern part of the state,  where  they   will   spend    their   honeymoon..  Soon after their return to  San  Francisco they will leave for Hedley, B, C,  where the groom will engage in the  practice of law. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE. JANUARY 4, 19MJ.

The Gazette'is very pleased to  know that the .views expressed  last week on the question of  glanders are being commended  generally. While agitation is  the proper thing at the present  juncture, it should be backed up  with immediate- concerted action on the part of the people of  this district.  To repeat, in this valley the  performance which has been  going on' in. the Cpper Okana-  the past month, would  oily. If all the gland-  horses were killed off  there would he no use in bringing in sound horses to take  their place so long as diseased  wild bauds a re running the hills,  for it would be only a matter of  a few months until the imported hordes would become infected. .  The first step undoubtedly  should be the extermination of  the wild bands, and to secure  this it liberal bounty should be  given for every wild horse destroyed   and    burned    for' this  ered work  Last week the Gazette''made  reference to the new -School "Act  which took  effect on  January  first, and the principal  changes  which it will bring about'-were  noted.    This week.we"revert to  the matter,,not so-much because  any particular feature had been  omitted but because it is most  important   that   the   pnblic  should  thoroughly  understand  the situation and take the proper amount of interest in a mat-  iter which effects the well-being  of the community.  Under the new act morepow-  er is given to and more responsibility rests upon the   people.  In the first 'place they are now  called upon to elect on the 11th  [ of January a full Board of Trustees. That Board of Trustees  J will have-power to employ and  j dismiss teachers, but their acts  must conform to the requirements of the School Act. Certain duties are laid, down for  them in the School Act and certain duties are given for the  teacher. It will be the duty of  the trustees, to uphold the  teacher in the maintenance of  proper discipline, for without  proper discipline there can be  no succesful teaching. As long  as the teacher keeps within the  Act and does faithful work after the methods taught in the  Normal School, he or she has a  right to demand the* support of  a proper Board of Trustees, and  it is the duty of the people to  see that such a Board is elected.  Hedley lias had no cause to  complain of the manner in  which the School Board have  conducted affairs .in the past.

Representation for British  Columbia in the Dominion cabinet has again become a live  question, as the result of the  sudden death, in Paris, of Hon.  Raymond Prefontaine. the Minister of Marine and Fisheries.  Ten years ago British Columbia  had representation in the Dominion cabinet under Conservative rule, by a minister in full  charge of a department, but although Senator Templeman has  been allowed the privilege of  looking on, British Columbia,  has had no real representation  there, for Quebec rules the roost  a ted will the maintenance of  schools be felt, and even then  not to a degree that will at all  begin to compare with the burden which the rate-payers of all  other provinces have to bear.

Miss Lainont, the new teacher, is  expected in this week.  Harry Swan - has the-.^con tract of  building the new brewerv'M, Princeton^.  AVhen the. earth was quaking at  various points the other morning,  Kereineos quaked in sympathy.  An earthquake and an elopement  before the year is two days old, who  says Hedley isn't up to snuff?  Boundary ore shipments for 1905  didn't quite reach the million mark.  The amount shipped was 950,000 tons.  The front page of the Victoria Times  Christmas edition was a good example  of the high class of color,* work which  the Times press is capable of turning  out.  New Years night was celebrated  with a pleasant dance at the Hotel  Siinilkameen. at which a good company were present and a pleasant time  spent.  Rev. E. P. Fleweljing is going to  Cranbrook, where he will be relieved  of the long stage rides which were so  trying on him between here and  Princeton.  The brewery of Diller <& Scherbauer  is almost   completed and all prepar-  stoc-k  when he  ations are being made to get a  ready for the thirsty navvy  reaches here.  Jack Way is reported to be receiving  fabulous otters these days for his holdings at the mouth of Sixteen-Mile.  Jack isn't saying anything: he merely  smiles blandly.  F. Bailey, of Hedley, is spending his  holidays a guest at A. Schubert's.  Mr. Bailey is a mining engineer engaged in his1 profession at Hedley.���������  Armstrong Advance.  Dr. AVhillans was called up to the  mine on Wednesday . last to visit  Joseph Wine, who had an attack of  heart trouble that was somewhat alarming to those about him.  Don't expect Engineer Mclvenzie to  run the We]by train in on time from  this out. With all the railway freighting going on, it will be more difficult  for him to avoid collisions. ,  At Fairview the earthquake made  itself felt in the drugstores.where the  bottles suffered. They had- been  '-- labeled "to be well shaken before  taken," -and. the earthquake obeyed  orders.  ���������Mr. L. W. Shatford is rushed, these  dayfc getting work cleared off before  he has. to leave for Victoria for the  opening of the House. He has to put  in a few days at Fairview and. also at  Penticton before leaving for the coast.  Gustavo, a Swede from the Nickel  Plate, celebrated Christmas, not wisely  but too well. He was up on two.'  counts, neither of which was sufficiently creditable to say much about, and  he contributed to the revenue of the  Province the aggregate of $40 and  some, costs.  Very slow time, appears:to have been'  made in completing the telephone line  between Kelowna and Penticton. The  poles have been put in between Penticton and Peachland but no wire has  yet been strung and the cable to span  Okanagan Lake is not expected to  arrive for a couple, of weeks yet.  On Tuesday .7. Innis was unloading  shoes and dies from his wagon at the  Daly Reduction Go's, mill .when a  heavy piece fell on his foot, bruising it  rather badly. Dr. McEwen dressed  the crushed loot and fortunately found  that no bones had been broken, The  patient is now at the Hotel Hedley.  The Myers Creek News has put in a  new dress, lot out a tuck or two and  is in all respects greatly improved.  The only fault to be found with it is  that it doesn't tell enough about how  they are getting along with railroad  building on that part of the route ; for  while the V. V. & E. doesn't exactly  touch Chesaw it is in very close pi-ox  imity thereto.  Mr. Ellis, of the firm of Ellis &  Brown, one of the leading law linns of  Vancouver, made the Gazette a pleasant call. Mr. Ellis has a ready passport to the sanctum of all Canadian  newspajiers, in that he is the son of  Senator Ellis of St. John, N. B., who  edited one of the oldest dailies in Canada, the St. John Globe. It is now a.  year and a half since lie was last in  Hedley and the improvements which  he noted were gratifying to him, as he  represents, on behalf of clients, an  important interest in the Hedley  Townsite.  The Midway and Vernon liy. Co.  are not yet out of the woods and the  completion of the line is said to be in  the dim distant future. Poor old West  Fork ! Where, is there a spot in southern B. C. that continues to get it in  ,the neck so regularly. The completion  of thcwagon road by the;pr������se.nt.ProT  vuicial Government and the 'phenomenal record of the Sally claim are about  the only brigh������ spots the' West Fork  has seen for i.nany a. long day.f'Whb  is the Jonah? The-whole community  should get after him and round him  up after the. .same fashion as Collier  did that,,bear. ' Fancy a distwcfe^Vith  ore rich enough to stand a wagon'haul  of fifty miles being kept back in this  way.  "Mother Earth,".-? Treasures",^compiled by Percy F. Godenrath and'published by the Colonist, is to hand,, and  is'a very interesting and tidy production.1 "In it the Siniilkaineen receives  a great deal of attention, showing that  the author thoroughly.appreeiated the  important position which this district  occupies. Hedley, which for (-'some  years has been the heart,' lungs-and  stomach" of the' Upper Siniilkaineen,  comes in for its proper mead of .attention. The book sells for 25 cents and  is well worth the money. .,      ^_.  The Canadian Alhianac has reached  its 59th year.of publication, and that  for 1906 is the most valuable of all.  How the publishers can get together  that amount of information and sell  the ���������book for 10 cents is wonderful  indeed. All the old features are retained, the matter being revised and  brought up to date, and new departments added. If it were, ten times the  price there, are few professional or  business men who could afford to do  without it. The Copp Clark Co.,  Limited, of Toronto, are the publishers  and they sell it for 10 cents.  Mr. and Mrs. Waterman, of Princeton deferred for a few days their visit  to California so as to take in the hospital ball at Hedley on the way out.  It was their intention to take Friday's  stage for Penticton but Mr. Waterman  was taken with an attack of la grippe  and they did not think it was wise to  venture out before Monday. On their  way down from Princeton they had a  break-down and were thrown out of  their rig, but 'fortunately no one was  hurt. Procuring another conveyance  at Bromley's, they managed to get  through to Hedley. Altogether it lias  been a chapter of accidents.  .  On Thursday last Mr. Geo. Gilbert,  who drives a team for the Hedley  'Lumber Co., had his wagon 'smashed  under him with a load of lumber and  had a narrow escape from getting  knocked in the head'with the binder-  pole. He was drawing a load up to  the Daly Reduction Company's works  and the wagon, which was a new. one,  slid sideways when going over an icy  place on the road and, meeting an obstacle which checked too suddenly the.  sideward progress, the'wheels ..collapsed-like matchwood. The heavy binder-pole released, measured its length;  ���������oiit across the. spot where the driver  Mid been sitting on his load, but he  fortunately had been thrown over oiii  to^i of one of the horses and slid off  the animal's back to one side.  fpSCCCOOCOO������>5<OSCO&COC������������00������30������C^  8  The  Leading  ~   House  For  Commercial  flen.   :   :   :  Best Only Provided for Table  -  ���������.   and Bar.

The Midway Star says that: "The  grading operations between here and  Oroyille are at present so far advanced,  notwithstanding the recent vexat ous-  delays, that the calculation is to have  that portion of the grade well on  towards completion by next May, at  which time ' the ' work of laying the  steel from Midway will be commenced  and pushed with all speed.
