Free Masonary in Hedley advanced  another step last week, when R. \Y.  Bro. Bume of Kelowna, empowered  by the Grand Master's representative  in this district, visited Hedley on  Thursday, January -tth, and, after  delivering to the local .lodge a. dispensation empowering them to ply the  ancient and honorable craft, instituted  the lodge in due awLancicnt form and  placed the officers in their respective  positions.  It was in March, 1905, that the Free  Masons- resident in Hedley first met  informally to take steps for the organization of a new lodge by asking permission of the Grand Lodge of British  Columbia. They have met the various  requirements of the Grand Lodge and  advancing step by step have now been  accorded the privilege of entering upon  the last or probationary stage of working under dispensation until such time  as they may be granted full standing  among the lodges belonging to the  jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of  British Columbia.  The first draft of officers made when  dispensation was first applied for was  as follows :  W. M.���������A. Megraw, P  S. W.���������Arthur Clare.  .T. W.���������Finlay Fraser.  Sec.���������A. II. Brown.  Treas.���������J. D. Brass, lJ  S. D.���������R. G. Shier.  J. D.���������H. H. Messenger.  S.���������J. K. Eraser.  S.���������A. Stewart.   .  G.���������\V. H. Smith.  ���������Alfred S. Shaw.  The removal of several members has  necessitated changes and given to  many of the officers acting rank. It-  is not often that a lodge suffers so  heavily by removal so, early in its  career, and one of the removals to be  specially regretted was that of Rev.  E. P. Flewelling, who, as a former  Grand Lodge officer in the Grand  Lodge of British Columbia, was a  tower of strength to the new lodge in  Hedley; for both by precept and example his influence was most wholesome to younger members of the craft  who saw in him those qualities which  the true Mason is expected to possess.  After the institution .proceedings an  address, which took the form of advice  to the new lodge, was delivered by  R. W. Bro. Burne and was well received by the members.  Refreshments of tea, coffee and  sandwiches were served in the anteroom and a little informal banquet  was held, when the usual Masonic  toasts were honored.'

Neill, who owns  a ranch across the river from the Hedley Lumber Company's saw mill, met  with an accident in which his shoulder  was dislocated, by being thrown from  a rig. He had hitched up a horse that  had never been remarkable for its  amiability, and intended to draw water  from the river on a light sleigh. The  brute became unmanagahle and ran  away with him, with the result that  when he was thrown from the rig he  received a very severe fall, and, although badly shaken up, he sustained  no further injury than the dislocation  of the shoulder.  " While work on the grades in  Lower Siniilkaineen was not  rushed during the month of December as fast as on-lookers would  like to see, there is evidence that a  change is taking place and that things  will move faster from this on. During  the fall the whole cry was scarcity of  men, but for two or three weeks in  December plenty of men were offering  who couldn't get work, and the whole,  situation might almost be described  as that of "marking time", which is  not to be recommended as the best  method to cover much ground.'  Last week, however, saw some improvement, work being stinted in several new places on this side of the  line and particularly at Keremeos,  wliere a steam shovel is expected  very shortly, a supply of fuel being  provided for its use.  Farther east the progress seems to  be. satisfactory and no effort is being  spared to rush the grade and get  everything in shape for the steel.  It is the intention to start the track-  laying machine out from'-Midway., on  May first; This track-layer, with a  speed of three miles per day, would  cover,the distance to Oroville in about  twenty days, and as the time for completion of the large tunnel near the  Nighthawk is placed at the beginning  of June, it is a mild estimate to place  the arrival at Kereineos for the first-  week in August.  The Chesaw News, in telling of the  progress of the work in that vicinity,  says: "Engineer Turrell, in charge of  the railroad work at Molson, has received instructions from headquarters  to have the contractors working under  him to rush the railroad work with all  possible dispatch during the remainder  of the winter. The instructions were  accompanied   by   the   announcement  FAIRVIEW  NOTES.  ������jeeeeee*ese*e������������**s������e������e������e������%t:  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  ''"T-\  Hi  Hi  Hi  >*  \Hi  ft  life  I*  I*  \Hi  \Hi  IHi  I*  \%  MRS.

They will remain here for  the balanV'*. r'f->-the waiter in order that  the children may attend school.  Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Prather have the  sympathy of the district owing to the  sickness of their youngest daughter  Pearl, succeeding the recent severe  breavenient in the loss of their son.  Dr. White has been most assiduous in  his attention to the case.  A small dance was held on Saturday  evening which was enjoyed by all.  D. M. McDougall came in on Saturday, returning on Sunday with Mr.  Shatford.  that the work of laying rails from  Midway would be commenced on May  first.  Although little is being said of the  various Great Northern construction  camps the work is going steadily on  and a very prominent showing is being  made. In the Chew, Burns ������fc Jordan  and Porter Bros.' camps���������the nearest  to Chesaw���������new grades, cuts, "fills"  and trestles are marking the line of the  new road, and in fact is beginning to  resemble a railroad New men are  being added daily and the lack of  laborers is not quite so serious a question as it was a few weeks ago.  To the northwest of here in the  camps near Molson the contractors  are pounding away with dagos and  giant powder plenty. In that part of  the line the use. "of vast quantities of  powder is necessary, 1(X) can shots  being touched off in the A. V. McDonald Camp No. 3. The Great Northern  is now in the field tor good and from  all appearances intends to hustle the  line to the coast. Contracts have been  let for construction work to bo carried  on eastward from the western end of  the line, a force of several hundred  men now being at work in the vicinity  of Cloverdale, working this way. In  the Siinilkameen about 300 teams are  at work.  It is also reported that work will  commence early in the spring on the  branch between Midway and Greenwood.  Mrs. L. W. Shatford and Miss  Stewart went out on Monday mornings stage. They were to meet Mr.  Shatford at- Penticton and go out on  Tuesday's boat en route for the coast,  which would just give hirn time to  reach Victoria for the opening of the j tronbles h:ts-bpen rendered less harm-  House to-day. Miss Stewart goes oast j fill. So f- r theiv has not been much  to her home at Lacombe, Alberta. I freezing in tiie flume itself;   but of  In addition to the regular work of  mining and milling which has gone on  without interruption, with a. gradually  increasing tonnage,- the 'work of improving the plant has not been allowed to drop behind, and as week after  week passes by,' a\building disappears  here and another rises elsewhere to fit  into a general scheme of re-arrangement, with a view to making the plant  capable of more economical production,  while hillocks lose their heads and hollows are'filled up to provide level yard  room' and trackage.  -  The slowness with which freight and  supplies move is a never-ending source  of annoyance to the manager who is  kept waiting the arrival of machinery  and supplies, long beyond the date  which he had counted on receiving  them.  The old assay office has disappeared  and the work will now be done in the  stone building south and. east of the  office New furnaces have been put in  and a laboratory crusher of the Gates  pattern will be installed and driven by  a 5 h. p. electric motor, so as to permit of the speedy pulping of large, samples-- Cement floors are being put in;  a fair-sized laboratory occupying the  north east corner of the building. The  pulp balance is housed in a small room  off the furnace room, and the bead  balances in the north west corner,  Avhere in addition to the balances now  in use a new high grade Ainsworth  balance is being added.  In the north end of the mill, to the  north of the precipitation boxes a complete transformation has been made,  cement floors being put in, a large  vault installed, and the necessary furnaces for the 'metallurgical processes.  These embrace two smelting furnaces  andsone muffle furnace besides the  roasting and retorting, the latter being most conveniently arranged for  expeditious work as well as to minimize any danger to the operator from  salivation.  Underneath the vanner floor the concentrates are now being sacked up for  shipment," and here also hydraulic  classifiers will soon be installed, part  of the equipment for which is now being made in the machine shop. Itis  hoped that by re-sizing the pulp for  the various tanks the process of leaching will be quicker and more thorough.  A re-arrangement of the main five  inch feed pipe for the gold tanks by  which they are now fastened tight to  the beams instead of being suspended  from rods has also taken a great deal  of vibration out of the building, by  acting as a brace.  The machine shop and carpenter  shop are each awaiting the machinery  which they are to,contain, and a coal  and coke bin is being constructed to  the west of the machine shop, the top  being on the same level as the track  around the machine shop to facilitate  filling from the freight wagons.  The ware house is now stocked with  a fine supply of machine and pipe fittings of various kinds and other supplies required on the works, and all is  arranged in apple pie order so that  not a moment's delay need occur when  anything is wanted to repair a -break  or equip nt'M- work.  At the power house the fight with  the elements which has been going on  for several weeks past and which will  be waged for the next two months  with increased vigor from week to  week as the cold operates in shortening up the water supply, is at once  evident. Had no precautions been  taken to bring up reinforcements,  Twenty-mile would have succumbed  to the struggle several weeks ago, and  instead of forty stamps dropping continuously day and night, possibly not  more than ten would now be in operation. A powerful pump has been installed at Twenty-mile Lake, which  Mr. Lamb says is virtually supplying  about all the water that is coming  down the flume. Precautions, too,  have been taken to protect the valves  at the head of the penstocks and thus  a very prolific source of last winter's  this it is too early to boast, for there  has been no cold .this winter lower  than 8 degrees above zero and that for  only a day or so at a time. The main  hope, however, when the final struggle,  conies, is the fprce of the auxiliary  steam plant, which is already put into  requisition and the effectiveness of  which will depend upon the wood  supply obtainable. The amount of  water coming down the main penstock  to' the power-house is insufficient to  keep the large compressor moving at  the requisite speed, and when it slows  up they turn - the steam on to the  steam compressor, lately placed in  position in the power-house, and shut  off tlie water to allow it to back up  and gain head in- the penstock, and  when the water gauge shows the.  desired pressure the'steam is shut off  and the water turned on again, and  thus the fight goes on. Meanwhile  the teams are hustling in the wood as  quickly as they can, but at present  seem barely able to keep ahead of the  boilers. The hteain compressor at the  mine is also in commission and* thus.a  good working pressure? is kept on the  air pipes, Avhile,the whole forty stamps  are,dropping continuously in the mill.  The Southern Okanagan Land Company's  Programme.  W.'T. Shatford, of Penticton,  came  up   on   Thursday's  boat,  returning  south the following day.    Speaking of  his   trip   to   California   recently,"   he  states that the United States government is taking up the question of irrigation, and'doing a great deal towards  reclaiming arid lands.    The irrigation  problem in  the south,   however,  does  not shed much light upon the question  as  it concerns  the Okanagan, :>.s the  conditions  are   very   different,   level  plain-like   valleys   instead   of   rolling  bench-lands, while the  great scarcity  of   water renders  necessary extraordinary   precautions   to   preserve   the  moisture from seepage''and'evaporation.  There is a great boom on now in  California,  a large number of people  from the east continually arriving to  locate there.    The  climate,  however,  does not compare  with   that of the  Okanagan.   Mr.  Shatford states that  the Southern Okanagan Land Co, has  hardly yet begun its campaign of advertising,   the   sales   so   far   effected  having  been   brought" about   without  any 'very positive effort on -their, part.  Now,    however,   that   the   irrigation  plans and survey work are well under  way, they will begin to adopt .'more  active measures.���������Vernon News.  AFTER THE BALL IS OVER  The Gazette regrets several important omissions and inaccuracies in the  report of the hospital ball. Next year  the reporter will try and have the  floor manager compel the guests to  line upas they do in lacrosse, and  then there will be less danger of missing any,  Where there is danger  of having a  joke told on you it is better to head it  off by telling it  yourself.      While on  the way to the Boundary a little over  a month ago, the editor had  the misfortune to part company with his grip  at Keremeos. and had to  start  on   to  Oroville without it.     A fellow passenger on the rig bound for Oroville, was  a lady who was going to a Thanksgiving ball at Loom is and  whose  enjoyment of a good joke caused her to poke  fun at the editor's  misfortune on  the  grip question.' She   maintained   that  under   the circumstances, she   would  have to keep a. close watch on the editor to see that he didn't break into her  valise (turkey, she called it) and steal  her ball dress for a nightshirt, and she  was ably assisted by another passenger���������a professional gentleman���������in the  job of poking fun at the editor.     Now  it so happened that on reaching Oroville,   while the lady  obtained snug  quarters with a lady friend, the doctor  .and the editor went on  to  the hotel,  where, being unable to obtain  rooms  they were sent aloft to a cold cheerless "ram pasture."     Fancy the figure  which the editor would have cut in  such a place if arrayed   in   that  ball  dress.   The low neck would assuredly  have let him in  for a   bad   attack   of  bronchitis,   and what a time he would  have, had to keep all his ten 'toes from  getting tangled up in  the meshes of  Russian net!

There is a split in .the Liberal  ranks on the coast with reference to filling the Cabinet vacancy.

Toronto, Dec. 29th, 1005  To the Editor:  In the Lord's Day Advocate, Nov.,  1905, there, appears an article entitled  "The Lord's Day Among the Mountains and on the Prairies ", written by  the Associate Seei'etary. The whole  article;would be too lengthy for insertion in your boliinins.but the following  sentences are sufficient to show its  spirit toward the-West generally, and  the sinners in particular:  "True it was not always'the quiet  and worshipful Sabbath of older parts  of Canada, but in the newest prairie  towns and in the busiest mining  centres there was an evident respect  for the day. In the most Sabbathless  places there were, those who helped  the Alliance, and stood steadfastly for  the maintenance of the Rest Day as  the inherent right of the citizens and  an absolute necessity to the nation."  And there were some towns where the  methods of keeping the day would be  'fin example to many places in Eastern  Canada."  ���������'The miners differently observe the  Sabbath. The coal miners in the Pass  Towns have demanded and obtained  freedom from work on Sundays, and  in many silver-lead mines in British  Columbia the toilers have their rest  day. But in some mines they work  every day alike. Some miners argue  that they have tq pay board tor everyday and consequently they must work  every day. It must be very poor work,  wh"ie six days' wages will not pay  seven days' board bill. But without  exception these men after a few  months' work would collect their entire  wages andrepair to the saloons, gambling dens and places ..of vile resort,  where in a few days their hard earned  money would all-be spent." ' .  The Nelson, B. C, News of Nov. 30,  1905, prints the following :  "Surely the Associate Secretary of  the Lord's Day Alliance does not- expect to make converts to the cause he  julvocates by the publication of grossly  inaccurate statements concerning the  silver-lead miners of this province.  Yet we find in his report published in  the last number of the Lord's Day  Advocate, the statement that in some  mines the men work seven days a  week and " without exception ��������� these  men, after a few month's work, would  collect their entire wages and repair  to the saloons, gambling dens, and  other places of vile resort, where in a  few days their hard earned money'"  would all be spent." The man who  will deliberately pen scandalous libels,  of this nature ought to be in jail or in  a lunatic asylum." '��������� '. '  The editor who would deliberately  and maliciously misrepresent the statements of any person in this way ought  not to be in a lunatic asylum, but  ought" to be in jail.
