Heal  Kstiite.  Mines.  Crown   Grant*   Applied   For  Under  Land  Act and  Min'cral Act.  Mr. J. B. Hobson, manager for the  Gugge.nhe.ims, in Cariboo, is a man  who knows no party, but takes a keen  interest in all that pertains to the  welfare of the mining industry. Interviewed in Vancouver he re-fused to  give information re his properties uii-  until he had reported to his principals  in New York. But the reporter for  the News-Advertiser says:  "Although Mr. Hobson could say  nothing in regard to the Consolidated  Cariboo, he was not averse to discussing the mining^ situation generally.  He said that a marked improvement  was noticeable, and that the change  had taken, place within the last couple  of years. This, was undoubtedly due,  to a large extent, to the legislation introduced by the administration of Premier McBride. His steadying ha nd upon the helm of the government had  the natural result. Before then capitalists looking upon British Columbia  had remarked, "Oh, yes, that country  has fine mineral .resources, but things  are so unsettled that investment is  rather precarious." This sentiment  has been altered. It was very different now. People with money were  eager to come in and to assist in exploitation of rich mines, which, had  hitherto had been lying dormant.  Referring to-mining in particular,  he expressed the opinion that the rise  in the value of all varieties of ore had  resulted in a stimulation of the industry. But another, and a factor more  potent in its influence than any other,  was the fact that the Guggenheims,  one of the largest and soundest 'mining institutions of the world, has entered the British Columbia field. That  alone, he thought, was bound to'encourage investors and to result, generally, in giving those with capital,  confidence in the future of the Canadian West as a mining center.  'As to British Columbia as a mining  country generally,' said Mr. Hobson,  'why, I believe there is nothing like it.  Its hardly likely that I would have  spent twelve or more years here,  working uphill all the time, if I hadn't  the utmost faith in the future of the  countrv.' He went on to say that  there, was every evidence that the  trend of feeling had altered, and that  the prospects were that British Columbia, from now on, woidd enjoy an  ever-increasing share of the prosperity which was being experienced  throughout the. whole of the Dominion of Canada."  When a man who lays claim' to abnormal "unctuous rectitude", and who  is so much exercised in pointing out  right and wrong in  the conduct   of  others,   expresses   the   opinion    that  others are bad, heshould be able to show  some good tangible .'reason; for afterwards taking that man to his bosom;  and vice-versa, when he states publicly  that   still   another   man   is   good, he  should be able to produce something  better than mere opinion   to  the con-,  trary, before removing him from the  high pedestal upon  which he had for-  lnei'ly placed   him.   Mr.  Curtis   has  been talking about both  McBride arid  Mclnnes,   but   his     present   position  would look   as   if   most   of   this high  moral rectitude with which   he buttered himself all over the other night,  was merely   put  on.   To   join  hands  withMcInnes   in   tnis   contest he undoubtedly   stultifies .himself,   besides  snowing  that,  like  the   parrot,    "be  bilked too.much."  WHAT HE  SAID  CONCERNING   MCBRIDE  To the Rossland Miner Mr.\ Curtis'  said:  "Mr. Curtis then devoted his attention to the Canadian Northern bill.  pointing out that the Hon. Richard  McBride opposed the bill, while Martin quietly and MeThnes openly advocated it until, the case was hopeless,  when Martin opposed. In this connection Mr.   Curtis- stated   that Hon.  OLD DEMOSTHENES  Couldn't Succeed in Bolstering Up A False Position.  That Is TheTteson Why  Duncan Ross And His Associates Were  Put Over The Ropes at Various Intervals In Saturday Nights Meeting��������� Bear-Baiting Forced The  Editor of The Gazette On  The Platform.  It doesn't require any renowned  speaker, but simply one who has  the truth on his side and the evidence , in his hands to drive it  home, to meet the fallacies of men  who are trying to bolster rip a false  ���������position and who have only subtle sophistry, blended with bombast to carry them through. A ten-year-old'boy  could do it if he is dilligent enough to  look rip aiid lie sure of his facts. That  is the .sum a nd kernel of Saturday  night's meeting in Hedley.  The three big guns, (including the  "long Tom") that were imported to  make the assault upon Shatford's citadel have fired-- themselves off, and  what has it all amounted to? Last  week the Gazette noted that Similkameen was to be made the pivotal point  of the Ottawa machine's attack upon  this province. The events of the past  week go to bear this out.  On Thursday night Mr. Curtis spoke  in Hedley, and the first point was to  impress  the   audience  with  the idea  Agent for:  London & Lancashire Fire Ins. Co.  Ocean Accident and Guarantee Co.  Office   at   HEDLEY,   B.  C.  OLIVER & GLADDEN  -:o:  Civil & Mining Engineers  :o:-  7VUINE3 and  REAL   ESTATE  HEDLEY, B. C.  "It is an  ill bird that  fouls its own  nest."   What do the people of Hedley  think of business men who make their  bread and butter iii this town asking  voters on Kettle River to vote against  Shatford because he has caused $7,(XK)  to be spent at Hedley in building the  Twenty-Mile wagon road.    The same  person also signed the petition asking  Mr. Shatford to secure this appropriation  and   kicked at the smallness of  the amount when  the appropriation  was secured.  Such tactics as this, goes  to show  how desperate  is  their case  when the opponents of Mr. Shatford  in this riding  have  to resort to such  methods in the hope of defeating him.  The Gazette appeals not only to Hedley voters but to all electors throughout the riding  who love British fair  play to pass judgment on such conduct by marking'their ballots on February 2nd for the man who has treated  all portions of the riding alike,  and  who in doing so,   gave  to  the men on  Kettle river the first money expended  in the riding,  because they needed it  most.  <L.   \V.   SH AT FOB I)  LlUKKAl.-CONSKUVATrVH  CANIUDATI-;  KOK   SlMir.KAMEEK.  Richard McBride was the only man in  the opposition who could have led the  fight against the government successfully. The present premier had shown  marked generalship and talent in  preventing the passage of the Canadian Northern bill and of other legislation of a dangerous nature.  'Out of all the muddle, Mr. Curtis  continued, the labor people secured  more favorable legislation than thev  got in any other province in the Dominion. One of the bills under this  head was the Laborers' Compensation  Act, granting $1500 to the survivors  of men killed by accident. All such  legislation was opposed indiiectly hy  by Martin and openly by Mclnnes.  At the last moment Mclnnes had  sought to insert into this bill a clause  that would have made it useless. Another act passed was that protecting  trades unions."  WHAT HE 8AIIJ ABOUT   MCINNES  In a memorable interview to the  Rossland Miner in the fall of 1903, Mr.  Curtis said, "Mclnnes is absolutely  impossible if liberalism is to emerge  from the cold shades of opposition by  putting honourable men at the helm  of the. liberal ship." And again, No,  No, Mcinnes wont do at all for leader  and should not even be allowed in the  caucus of the party."  Not a word did any of the three  liberal speakers, on Saturday night,  say about "better terms," or the financial position of the province,  two rital issues mentioned on  hand-bills and adhered to in the  speeches were, smelter fiat and why  Duncan Ross didn't receive all the  credit for bringing the railway, which  is not yet here.  The  the  that Mr. Shatford. was afraid to meet  him. At Keremeos he had been preparing for some grand-stand play by  going to Mr. Shatford with a letter requesting an arrangement to be enter 2,  into for joint meetings. Mr. Shatford  who had his own plan of campaign to  attend to, informed him that he reserved the right to conduct his campaign to suit himself. Later on Mr.  Curtis went at him again, this time  accompanied by a little knot of faithful heelers, to be witness to tin; play.  This h;tter was displayed with great  flourish in Hedley, being read by the  chairman, at Thursday night's meeting, and said heelers were on hand to  identify it if need be. Mi-. Curtis is a  lawyer you know.  He also indulged in a little cheap  claptrap to the audience about having  written and wired Premier McBride  to come and meet him, as if Premier  McBride had nothing else to attend to  but trot around after him. The balance of his address was devoted to  giving himself a testimonial for possessing the choicest brand of integrity,  and as for ability, the only difference  between him and the prophet Jonah  was that instead of being Jonah he  was the whale.  Saturday morning he again appeared on the scene, but this time, instead  of having Mr. Shatford to badger on  the subject of meeting him on the platform, it was the editor of the Gazette,  that he was after. The Gazette was  informed that Mr. Ross was to be in  town to speak that night, and that the  presence of the Gazette editor was  very much desired. They didn't exactly say that Mr. Ross' mission was  to eat up or burn up the Gazette editor, but that inference was unmistakable. The invitation to represent  Mr. Shatford or the Conservative party was not   accepted, and then  the  next tack was to state,, that certain  statements that had been made in the  Gazette concerning Mr. Ross were to  be attacked by him. That altered the  situation and they were given to understand that if the Gazette were attacked, the editor was prepared to defend.  Mr. Ross and Grigor, the Liberal organizer arrived during the day.  At the meeting the hall was' comfor-  bibly tilled, and Miv F. Fraser occupied the chair.  , Mr. Grigor opened tlie ball with the  characteristic crow' about no one being  present to defend, but the burden of  bis speech was the transcendant probity of himself and Mr. Curtis, and  the futility of retaining Mr. Shatford  Avho had said nothing and done less.  He was followed by Mr. Ross, who  started in on smelter, site, claiming  that the McBride government had  made the transfer to Mr. Rogers instead of to the Daly0, Reduction Co.  th.-itlthfev had given' too much land,  and that no restriction, whatever;, had  been placed on the use to which it should  be put. The main head of his fierce  sermon, however, was the Hedley  Gazette. The Gazette had pursued  him relentlessly throughout his entire parliamentary course; it had  blamed him for not doing his duty in  connection with -suielter-flat; it had  blamed him, for not bringing in the  mails by rail before the rail way-  was built; it had accused him of having the Greenwood branch built before the road was, completed up the .  Similkameen ; it had blamed him for  not bringing the railway tracks across  the river at Hedley, and it had robbed  hiin of the credit that was coming to  him. on the railway question by daring  to allow Mr. Shatford to share any of  it. '"'���������'.  He treated of the V. V. & E. fight,  but all his discussion on this was from  the standpoint of the amount of credit with which the Gazette should have  loaded up Duncan Ross.  It was in the discussion of the Columbia it Western matter, however,  that his mendacity and crooked distortion of facts reached the highest point  of malignance, when he made .the assertion that the C. P. -Ti., knowing  that their right and title to the lands  along the Kettle river specified in the  Subsidy Act of 189(5, had lapsed, had  no thought of re-asserting ownership  therein had it not been at the instance  of the McBride Government which  told them of the legislation which they  intended to introduce in the session of  1903. Shatford, he claimed, was tied  up with the C. P. R., and had no more  to do with bringing the Great Northern  than an Eskimo at the North Pole had  to do-with yellow fever.  On the completion of his  speech, - A. Megraw asked the  privilege of ��������� meeting the attack  upon the Gazette, and in doing so had  to go more minutely into the question  of the Smelter flat- and also of the part  which Mr. Shatford played in bringing  the railway. To show that Mr. Ross'  attempt to fasten anv blame upon the  McBride Government- or upon Mr.  Shatford in connection with any transfer of land to Mr. Rogers who represented the Daly Reduction Co., he pio-  duced -a letter from W. S. Gore,  Deputy Commissioner of Lands and  Works, under date of July 3rd, 1905,  which stated that the order-in-council  under which authority for the transfer  of 194 acres of land to M. K. Rodgers  had been passed on the 20th day of  March, 1903, when W. C. Wells was  Chief 'Commissioner of Lands and  Works. Hon. Richard McBride was  leader of the Opposition and- Mr. Shatford was a private citizen who had not  yet entered the political arena.  The railway question was more complex, and after obtaining an admission  from Mr. Ross  that it was the V. V.  it E. legislation at Ottawa, and that  only, which was responsible, for bringing the railway, he produced evidence  from various sources showing that the  Great Northern did not want any legislation   at   Victoria   concerning   the  building   of   a   railway   through   the  Similkameen,   or    to    put    it    more  strongly, what they did want was no  legislation   to   that   effect  and   they  would   build,  but   if   legislation   was  passed they wouldn't build.    Mr. Shatford knowing this from Great Northern officials took care that there was  no legislation.   This end attained, two  courses were open to the Great Northern.    One was to secure legislation at  Ottawa to restore to  them expropriation rights,   which had  lapsed from  them   in   the   original   V.  V.  <fc E.  charter which   they  had   purchased.  The   other   was    to    build   in   from  Republic without Dominion legislation  and   negotiate with  land-holders for  right-of-way.      To   show   that   they  were prepared to do the latter if need  be,   the   first   work    done   was   not  between Midway and Oroville which  work didn't   begin  until   September,  1905,   but   between  Oroville   and  the  B. C. boundary on tin;  Similkameen  which work was begun in May, 1905,  or over 2 months before the bill passed  at Ottawa.   To further clinch this he  read from a letter written by Mr. Ross  himself under date of June 29th, 1905.  in which Mr. Ross admitted that the  Great Northern were prepared to build  from Republic without Ottawa legislation ; thus Mr. Ross was taught the  lesson that the man who fibs has need  of a long memory.

The   people  of   Hedley. who  went on Saturday night to the  hall to hear the issues discussed  By  men who  claim  to  be  the  leaders  of   the   Liberal   party,  have   now   an   opportunity to  judge whether there is any sane  reason  to  turn  out a  government    which    four    years   ago  found the province on the verge  of bankruptcy, with confidence  lacking    both    at    home   and  abroad, and which has so completely restored confidence and  credit that a period of expansion  has set in that is unequalled by  anything    heretofore     experienced   in   this   province.-      To  honest   Liberals  in 'this  town,  whether  they   are   electors   or  not, and to all men and women  who  will lay aside party prejudice and judge a question on  its merits, we appeal for a verdict as to whether any  petty  local issue that has long been  settled   should  now   be resurrected and falsely presented, in  order to inflame the prejudices  of   the  unthinking   portion of  the electorate.    That, and that  only, .was the course pursued on  Saturday night, by Grigor, the  XDaid  organizer  of the  Liberal  party,   by   Duncan   Ross   who  should   now    be     in    Ottawa  attending to the affairs of Yale-  Cariboo, and  by Smith-Curtis,  who is asking you to turn down  a man who has given as faithful  service  to  his constituency as  any representative who has sat  in the legislature, obtaining for  public    improvements    in   the  riding ajipropriations altogether  unknown previously under any  representative  01  any government.    There was not one Avord  about " Better Terms," a question in which $10,000,000 of this  province's money is involved, to  say nothing of the outrage being-  perpetuated; not one word about  the finances of the province, or  the   government's     efforts   to  place   them   on   a   better   and  .sounder   basis, and  nothing, in  fact, but misrepresentations regarding  Smelter Flat, the Hill  Railway and the Columbia and  Western matter.     There   were  bitter attacks upon the Hedley  Gazette,    almost/    everyone    of  which we are prepared to prove  by the files in this office, to be  false,   and   there   was  personal  vilification   of Mr. Shatford ad  libitum and some of it most inhuman   and   ghoulish   in   character.  Ant!   yet,   these are   the   men  who are represented by the Liberal press of ilris province to be j  Xesi'ors   in  the   Liberal   ranks;!  the fighting would begin.    w,������.. ,     ,       ,,   ,    ..      .  . .,,,.       .���������-,      i   ������   ,.   j.i ��������� "    ���������        .     ,    anv campaign  sl.nuleih   that   may   bo,  5    the people or   i/his province at j  I.'the present, juncture  afford to , si)lim- (,il tlu' l'Vl'(,i tllf' l)ol,il,S "h��������� j  ���������;ruu-that risk.'? ���������' ��������� ' llice ma\  be no   tunc   lelt   to   refute j  I    Smith Curtis by his own nd-  them.

C. Wells, the late Liberal  Commissioner of Lands and  Works, who was in charge of  the department when the order-  in-council authorizing the issue  of the Crown grant was passed  on March 26th, 1903.       ;  On the railway question too  he maintained that Shatford  had no part nor let in bringing  the railway which would have  been in the same position as it  is to-day if Mr. Shatford had  never existed. The complete  demolition of his little hypothesis, which occurred when the  facts were given to the audience  was another knock-down.  The grand rally developed  into a grand fizzle and the  Curtis bubble is burst. All that  remains is some greenbacks in  the pockets of the faithful to buy  a few votes that will still be  marked against them, and to  blow in over the bar with a  " never mind the change."  P. R.  Mr. Smith Curtis complained that  "he had failed to hear Mr Shatford's  silvery tones in. the'House," Which  would the-electors of the Similkameen  rather have���������Mr. Shatford's silvery  tones two or three times during the  session, and always setting forth the  the merits and needs of the Similkameen, or the shrill strident notes of  SmithCurtis eternally harping on some  malodorous, scandal real or imaginary,  that he. had nosed out, in which Siinilkameen lias no earthly concern ?  Mr, Curtis made his complaint in a  manner to convey the. impression that  Mr. Shatford never speaks in the  House, but when taken to task, was  eager to qualify it by explaining that  during any of his visits he had never  heard Mr Shatford speak.

Since the  advent of that brace of purists, evidences have not been lacking that G.  T. P. money is being used without  stint in Hedley to defeat Shatford.

The cold snap of this week, following that of last week has made the  average householder begin to wonder  whether it is not advisable to go in for  a, different style of architecture.  Heretofore with our mild winters any  sort of structure would do to pass a  winter in, but when it comes to 30 below zero, and the average minimum  for three weeks in succession will  figure out to a minus quantity, "jini-  crow" houses are scarcely the thing  for comfort.  Railway matters are quiet. The  member for Patwelch is electioneering  and Pat himself is wintering in Europe.  It is not desirable that times should be  too prosperous in the Similkameen until after the election, but Avhen that  event is past and the McBride government returned with a good, big majority there will be no longer need to  hang back, especially as they have a  heap of work to do before high water.  So we may expect to see things begin  to buzz among the Patwelch forces  after Feb. 2nd.  ���������  Laced Lumhbioikn's?       :  2-Buckle LuMiiEiorhix's   :  1-Buckle Lumbermen's   :  Men's Maxitouas, 3-buckle  Women's Empress. 2-buckle  Keg.

Hill:  Seattle, April 12th, 1905.  L.  W.   SllATFOBD,  M.P.P.,  Victoria, B. C.  My Deak Sir:  In view of the activity and earnestness displayed by you during the  recent session of the British Columbia  Legislature in tin; furtherance of the  interests of this Company, and securing transportation facilities for. the  people of your district, I beg to express to you our grateful appreciation  of your services, and I have, no doubt  that the people represented bv you  will thoroughly understand and appreciate your efforts in their behalf.  Tt gives me great pleasure to state  that it now seems that your work is  soon to be rewarded, and that this  Company will speedily give your district the transportation it so urgently  needs and desires.  Yours very truly,  J. D. Fakkel.  Before an opportunity was given to  take up the Columbia, ������fc Western  matter Mr. Ross complained to the  chairman that an hour and a quarter  had been taken up, and accused his  opposition of wanting to " talk-out  the meeting," which was untrue.  Neither do we believe that the time  taken was an hour and a quarter. All  that was sought was to deal properly  with the questions that he himself had  raised and to put the audience in possession of the facts instead of having  them go away with the distorted views  that lie had given them.  Before the meeting closed all three  of them had to have their little say in  reply. Mr. Ross tried to minimize the  effect of his exposure by insinuations  reflecting on Farrel, which had nothing  to do with the question. John F.  Stevens also left .the employ of J. J.  Hill, and Roosevelt now has him engineer on the Panama Canal at  $2T>,000 rjer year. Farrel was the  accredited.representative of J. J. Hill  when he sent that letter to Shatford  and that is all that the electors of  Similkameen have, to do with.  PR0PE  A  Go d,  HEDLEY  I n vestment  WM -.
