"The Princeton Star ha*, some fatherly advice for the Saturday Sunset which it. would  be well for that paper- to take and cease being1  ridiculous in its editor's self-imposed role of  guardian-in-ehief for the Siniilkaineen. ��������� Hedley Gazette.  With a paper like, the Hedley Gazette to look after the interests, of the  Similkameen a "guardian" or some  other agency which takes a disinterested stand in its* behalf would seem to  he needed.  The only thing- which the Gazette  hits ever boosted in its own district  which needed boosting, was a mining  property whose manager was putting  the bulk of his savings into the United  Wireless swindle ��������� stock; which was  sold by. the'editor-"of the Hedley Gazette on a fifty percent basis of commission, the proceeds,of which he invested in Vancouver real estate.  Were it not that the editor of the  Gazette had the wisdom to invest his  profits ont of the> United Wireless  fraud in Vancouver real estate, it.  might have been srrggested that he  was himself in need - of a guardian. ~  Saturday Sunset  The above appeared in the Saturday  Sunset of December 14th, no copy of  which was sent to this office, nor has  any copy of that paper been received  since. Whether it had been coming  regularly up to that1'date or not the  Gazette is not in a position to say, not  having read a line of it for mouths,  but we are inclined to think that the  copy in which this scurrilous attack  appealed  was the first one held back.  Inquiry at the post office here elicited the fact that the post master  was irot aware of any copy for the  Gazette failing to arrive before that.  Some days, afterwaad a friend informed us that the editor of the Gazette  was agairr rrrade the object of more of  McConnell*s abuse. Not being able to  find the paper among our exchanges  the matter was dropped at the time  and we thought no more of it until  about a fortnight later another friend;  brought a copy of the Sunset of Dec.  14th containing the above. ~.    ~  Neither is this the fir-st occasion  upon which the Sunset editor lias  sought to heap .odium upon the editor  of the Gazette because the latter had  the misfortune to have been the local  agent of United Wireless and sold  their stock. Last summer an attack  upon the editor of the Gazette in connection with. Wireless appeared in the  Snnset in the form of a. communication with 110 name of the writer given,  and underneath was a paragraph of  apparent indorsation on the part of  the editor of the Sunset. In reply to  that the editor of this paper sent a  letter to the Sunset over his own signature for- .publication and a private  letter as well to its editor, and these  furnished data by which McConnell  became aware that what he has stated  in the paragraph above quoted from  his issue of December 14th was untrue.  Thus he has lied knowing that he was  doing so.  Furthermore in the letter for publication were the following sentences  which he deemed prudent in his own  behalf to leave out:  ���������'If Wireless stock is the swirrdle it  is represented to be then I myself have  been worse hit than anyone to whom  I sold  the stock.     Can   you  say  RE-VISITING   HEDLEY  Messrs. M. K. & Harry Rodgers Inspect  Nickel Plate���������Latter After Interval  of Five Years  HORSE STEALING CASE  Mr. M, K. Rodgers and his- bi other  Harry arrived in Hedley 011 Friday  last and spent a few days, during  which time they paid a visit to the  Nickel Plate and were ' iminensolv  pleased with the showings. To Harry  who had not seen it since the fall of  1906, the amount of-ground opened up  and huge chambers from which ore  had been extracted was an eye-opener  and showed him that the. Nickel Plate  is now to be classed among the big  mines of the country. ' Hairy Hodgers  has made a specialty of economic geology and during the past five years  has had some very important corn-  missions in the lirre of mine examination. Few geologists art* as conversant with Nickel Plate mountain as  he for he spent many hard weeks  working out its problems before other  geologists had done more than give it  the most casual lookover.  Tt must prove a most gratifying fact  to M. K. and Harry Hodgers that the  conclusions anived at by both of thein  years ago after a long and careful  study of the mountain, are being fully  borne out by subsequent development.  The re-opening of No. 4 tunnel that had  been condemned and abandoned by  the coterie' of lesser lights���������Lamb,  Oake, Ross et ul.. and the splendid  results that are beirrg obtained therefrom, is not only a tribute to the geological work oT Messrs. M. K. and  Harry Rodgers and the mine superintendent, but should be of immense  benefit to the camp in the encouragement it must give to other holders of  mining property and other mining  investors to take hold and do likewise.  MACHAFFIE���������MCLEAN  L. G. MacHaffie took his Hedley  friends rather by surprise when a  special rig...;accoinpany.irig_ the bus  for the south going train took out  a wedding party in which he figured  in a very prominent way. The event  took place at the residence of W. A.  McLean at2.30whcn RevA.H. Cameron  united him in wedlock with Myrtle  Effie McLean, the youngest daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. McLean. ��������� The  wedding was quiet, none being present  except members of the family and  Mrs.' Bradshaw and daughter, while  Mr. H. A. Hincks, manager of the  Bank of B. N. A.-was best man.  Immediately after the ceremony  they started for the depot to catch the  train for Spokane oir the way to Mr.  MacHaffie's home in Vancouver for a  day or two before proceeding to California for their wedding tour, Mr.  MacHaffie having obtained leave of  absence for eight weeks.  At the close of the honeymoon they  will proceed to Fort George where Mr.  MacHaffie will resume his duties as  manager of the Bank of B. N. A. at  that point. The Gazette joins with  their- many friends in wishing the  young couple happiness and prosperity.  METEOROLOGICAL.  tt  tt  NOTICE  Certificate of Improvements.

The charge against him  was that of stealing a horse belonging  to',Tim Griffin from the range to the  northwest of the town arid disposing  of Iiiui to Alex. .1. Coutlee, a. livery  keeper, at Merritt. .The' horse was  turned out oh tin: range" by the owner  about   the  end of, ..Lily   and .-was   riot  missed until about six weeks a^o when  (.. , - . .. ......  Tom    Kellogg-,'-who   had   permission  from'Tim. to use him  went out to'lnok"\  for him and reported- that lie avus not  to be found on the ranges  Fortunately tlie horse was'branded  with a. special, brand only to he-found  on two horses in the district and he  was easy to locate. 'Coutlee' got possession of him'a lit-th* after Labor 'Day  when Nahumshan rode- 'him into  Meritt and traded with Coutlee for a  grey horse and $10 to boot. The horse  had been bought as a. colt- from Neil  McFadden, of Princeton, by Ed. Burr  who branded him "13. Ji3." on the left  shoulder and on the right shoulder-  was the brand "Ol" which had been  on him when bought by IBurr.  Nahumshan after this exploit turned up again irr Hedley several weeks  after and being gloriously drunk one  Saturday night was gathered in by  consttible Sproule who did not, know  who he was and instead of locking  him in one of the cells allowed him  the freedom of the hallway outside  the cells and this indulgence he returned bv smashing the lock, on the  door between the hallway and the  outer office and got away. After this  escape he sot across the line, but being located Max .Ewart went after  him about a fortnight ago and brought  him back. He has done time in Washington and although quite young was ,  fast rrraking for himself the reputation  of a bad Indian. Had there been insufficient evidence to commit on this  case there were several others upon  which he could have been arraigned.  The evidence, however, was most conclusive, the horse brought down by  Coutlee being identified by Burr- and  Griffin as the horse stolen., and both  Coutlee and Mrs. Coutlee swearing to  the same horse as the one traded to  them by Nahumshan and identifying  Nahumshan as the party who traded  the horse.  A feature in connection with the  case which should have the attention  of the Attorney-general's office is the  hardship wrought upon the witness  Alex. .T. Coutlee .who came with his  wife from Merritt bringing the stolerr  horse. No expense money was advanced to him and' there was no  money here for him after the cast-  was over. As a result, he was out his  time as well as a large amount of cash  which he had to pay for- traveling expenses, and besides this was the wages  of two men in Merritt whom he had  to hire to take their places during  their- absence. Had he done rro more  than obey the summons sent to appear as a witness and insisted on expense money before starting it would  liave cost, the Province :i. great deal  more money than it did, and he should  be fully reimbursed for the loss he has  been put to.

Hincks, Acting Manager  NOTICE  SIMILE AMEEN LAND DISTRICT  blSTKICTOK VALK  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The Great Northern Railway is getting into very bad odor in  the Kootenays where the people have been so  ���������goaded   by   the   treatment   accorded  them that they are disposed to adopt  strenuous measures for redress and no  one  can  blame"tliein"under  the circumstances.    The G. N. K. have abandoned certain portions of their system  over in that locality  and   left, the people without train  service.     The mode  of procedure for redress   is  to risk the  Legislature   for   cancellation   of   the  charter and to compel .them   to  abandon   the   right   of   way   which   they  claim is not  being  used  for  the  purpose for which it was obtained.   These  are   weighty    contentions    and   tho  courts  and    other   governing   bodies  will have to take cognizance of them.  Record of a Slanderer  Continued from Page one.  mission was ten per cent. AVo leave  it to insurance and financial agents  generally, whether any similar business is done for less. As for the fifty  per cent, yarn we had hoard similar  reports talked of in Hedley but as it  was by fellows who had not five cents  invested irr it they were nut given  even the satisfaction of a denial. The  editor had no Wireless commission to  put into Vancouver real estate. Every  cent of commission .from AVireless  wont back into AVireless stock and a.  great deal more besides. It is true we  have invested to a small extent in  Vancouver real estate but that is none  of McCnnuell's business and the public  are in nowise concerned with it. But  what have Vancouver property-holders got to say of a newspaper in their  midst which seeks to hold up to ridicule outsiders who may see fit to buy  Vancouver property? That is an extraordinary way of boosting a towir in  which he is getting his living.  As for Wireless, it may he a swindle  and it may not. Within the past  month one Medley stock-holder turned over a block of ten shares of it for  .$20 per share.���������the price paid for it.  If McConnell wants to investigate this  he can have the name: tho circumstance is well known in Hedley. How  much did any of McConneH's AViarton  victims who lost their homes get  hack? And again how much did he  drop in his AViarton .scheme?  And now for this Wiai-fon matter.  While it does not concern the- people  of British Columbia yet if its importance is to lie rated by the amount of  loss occasioned it has twenty times  greater reason to be brought before  the public than AVireless in Hedley,  and since he has seen fit to harp so  persistently on that affair he must he  taught the. lesson that "people who  live in glass houses are apt to be  kodaked". Not many years before he  came to British Columbia., McConnell  was an oi',, tonged promoter of a beet  sugar   proposition   in    the    town   of  the Orange Grand Lodge of Ontario  arrd only a- few weeks ago he was  chosen as sheriff of the county. '.Then  there is no apparent reason why Jermyn should say such a proposal was  made if it wasn't, but it is a. much;  easier matter to believe that the other  would try to get out of it with a denial..  But to resume the beet sugar narrative aud note the outcome, it may be'  briefly stated that beet sugar lookeil  good t> the town: the project was,  underwritten and an expensive plant;  put. in. Unforturiiitely the industry  was not a success and the stock hold-;  ers being also guarantors for a snide!  company which put up the buildings;  were called upon to make good an;  enormous indebtedness .which ruined  many..of them. One hotel man with-  whom the editor of the Gazette board-1  ed for three years anil who was reputed to be worth about .$20,000 had to  give up everything, and had a lifetime's savings taken from him and  scarcely a business man in the town  was not hit for more than he could  stand. About tlie smallest loser  among them had to put up a sum  double.the o.ntire. AVireless holding in  Hedley even if not a cent should come  out of it. But what of that $10,000  subscribed by the censorious Mr. McConnell? He brags about having successfully defended a suit when they  went to make him pay up the amount  of his subscription. Isn't there an old  adage which says "you can't take the  pants oil' a Hielarnnan". Possibly that  might explain it in this case also.  For more than a, year this man has  been almost silly with self-conceit arrd  his paper a blackguard sheet, interfering with other people's private affairs even to the extent of dictating to  householders who they shall or shall  not employ in their kitchens.

There "will be a dance in the" hall on  Frid.iy night.    Everybody welcome.  Dr. Jackson, dentist, will be in Hedley about the 12th or 13th.  Sam Manery left last week for the  coast on -i. very important mission.  The long blowing of the mill whistle  at midnight on Saturday night last  announced the -irrival of 15)11 to Hedley ites.  Miss Ruth Bowerman returned borne  to Oroville on Mond.iy after spending  the holidays with her aunt, Mrs. E. D.  Boeing.  Frank Carbonaro, sectiorr foreman  at JJradsh-iw's, and Mary Lorenzetto  were married last week. The Gazette  was represented at the function.  ��������� Like the N. Y. stock market the  price on canaries has its rise and fall.  Rolls of Hedley quotes $6.00 per pair  for Jan., $7.00 for Feb., $8.00for March  and $10.00 for April. ...   v  Much local  and  other   matter  has  been crowded out of this issue for rea-  ' sons that are obvious.    We trust it  ���������will not be necessary to offend in the.  same way ageiti for some time.  The Oroville Gazette's new heading  '.is of a neat design���������dainty  and  comprehensive  with a healthy suggestion  ' of'  boost   as    characteristic 'of   that  ./paper. .;-.,.- -.,*'.. ..  ��������� ���������   The Gie-i t Northern's bill for freight  ���������on the  bridge material, for lire new  bridge at Sterling Creek was over  -$1000. From this it is evident that the  G. N. R.  are  not in  the Similkameen  - for their health altogether.  Rolls & Co. have j.ist opened up a  new lot of Eslinro Cigars.- The demand for them is inoreasiiiff and will  . continue to do so, as long as the present quality is maintained.  A good crowd from Hedley took in  the Princeton dance on Friday night  last and report a particularly success-  ��������� fill time. Those who could rrot get off  in time to take the train went up by  sleigh early in the evening.  ErnrrraGrathwohl rind Laiiiar: Armstrong were married at Oroville last  week. The bride was a former resident of Hedley, when her father owned the brewery on Twenty-mile which  was burned down -"about seven years  ,-ago., ...-, _  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., was on  his way to the coast when he learned  of the date set for the funeral of the  late Frank Richter and altered his  plans so as to enable him to get to  Keremeos to attend.  The hospital dance committee wish  to correct the error that has gained  currency that the hospital dance on  the 20th is to be a full dress affair. No  such thing was ever thought of and  guests are free to come to the dance  dressed as they have always been.  To help the ladies look their best at  our Hospital ball. January j:0th, Mr.  Rolls has decided to take their orders  in advance, not later than January  15th, for roses, chrysanthemums and  carnations.  The snowfall irp at the mine for the  months of November and December  has been the greatest for sometime.  The aggregate snowfall in that time  reached 72 inches. If it keeps that up  for the balance .of tho Avrliter there  should be sorrre water flowing down  Twenty-mile next spring.  The first touch of real winter' weather came in with the New Year, but  it was not particularly fierce, as the  lowest temperature reached here irr  Hedley was 6degrees above zero. Up  ^it the mine, however it got down to 0  below. A little more of this will help  out the ice crop which is already reasonably sure.  W. A. McLean came down from Ke-  lowna to spend New Years with his  family and incidentally to see his new  grand-daughter', Miss Gillespie. He  had been visited by his old eneny sciatica and spent a while in the hospital  there. Sirrce the foregoing was put in  type another important event has  marked his return. Particulars in  another column.  The New Year came in with Medley  a dry town. The old. licences ran out  on December 31st and as tlio new licenses had not arrived, although the  applications for same had been duly  made but by some departmental delay had not been issued in time to  reach here before the date on which  they were to take effect, the. hotel-  keepers here were taking no chances  and kept their bars locked. The noon  train, however, brought in the necessary authority to dispense the spirits  and no time was lost in drinking suc-  ���������eess to the New Year.  The unsnit.'ibility of train , service  deprived several from hereof opportunity to attend the funeial of the late  Frank Richter which took place on  Tuesday morning at ten o'clock. Effort was made ti> get up. a load and  the delay occasioned by di-periding on  it prevented others from getting  there who would have made other  provision. ,  L. G. Madia Die, formerly manager  of the Bank of B. N. A. in Medley and  latterly acting in tho same capacity  for the branch of that Bank in South  Port George, came in on Friday's train  to visit Hedley friends. He appears  to be enamored of the northern metropolis and reports wonderful progress  in the town and district since he went  in there last spring to open up the  branch.  Ri'v. A. H. Cameron in his sermon  on Sunday (New Years) night made  feeling reference to the death of the  late Frank Richter, paying a deserved  tribute to his worth and the inipor-  tant'part he has taken in the progress  of the community. His le>son therefrom was the uncertainty of life and  -the responsibilities which meet us for  spiritual advancement on' the threshold of the new year.,  Constable Nigel B. Ewart left on  Saturday last for Kamloops in charee  of the three prisoners, Steves, Felix  and Nahumshan gathered in by the  local constables during the past three  weeks and sent up for trial orr various  charges. Steves was committed for  stealing a cow arrd calf, Felix for stealing a suit case containing clothing and  Nahumshan for horse-stealing. There  are several more yet that are likely to  make the same trip as soon as the  necessary evidence to send them there  is forthcoming.  ��������� H. A Turner, government road  superintendent, was in town last week.  The work on the road to the station  at Hedley is about all that is now being carried on in the riding. The very  late start on the work was the cause  of it being thrown so late, ' but thus  far the winter- weather has, been irrost  favoiable for carrying it on. It was  rather a. disappointment to the superintendent, .on his arrival in Hedley to  find his local foreman Harry Rose  crippled With arr accident which bef el  him in having his foot jammed irr the  car wheel.

The K. K. K. gave a new turn to  their regular weekly evening's entertainment last week at the residence of  Mrs. C. G. Keeler by holding a "poverty" social. Heavy fines amounting  in some instances to 10 cents were imposed upon several gentlemen who indulged in the. extravagance of polishing their boots for the occasion, Avhile  a number of ladies were found with  chewing grrni in their possession and  made to whack up. Numerous minor  offences were punished by lesser fines.  Public school re-opened "ii Tuesday  with Mr. E. Fraser in charge. Delay  in the arrival of the furnace for the  school house prevented it being installed during the holiday week as had  been intended, but Harry Meausette,  who has the contract has the work  well under way and it is expected that  by the first of next week it will be  ready for use.

At the time of writing (Tuesday morning) it would be a breach of  confidence to tell all we know but before this appears in print Vin's friends  will probably have learned that he has  grown tiied of sewing on his own  buttons and is taking a, Taylor (from  the White Luke district) home with  Iiim. Congratulations and a happy  new. Year.

The funeral took place  from Richter's Hall, oil Tuesday.,at 11.  a. in., being delayed an hour in waiting for some from a distance who failed to reach there;-   The pall-bearers  were L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., W,  Lowe, Babe Kruger, Harry Conkling,  Dr. White and Manuel Barcello, in an  honorary capacity, his lameness preventing him from performing'-the  more active duties. Among the old-  timers from the Kettle River were  Henry Nicholson and John H. East.  The service was conducted by Rev.  Father Conan, of Kamloops, and interment took place in the new '.Keremeos Cemetery-of which deceased was  a director.
