The Vancouver Chamber of Mines Gives  Out Some I-l&JTSs of the Year's  Production  Vancouver dailies in the last issue  of the old year had a report of mining  conditions in the province, supplied  them by F.-.i. Orosslancl, secretary of  the Vancouver Chamber- of Aline.-.  This report essays to give an approximate idea, of the production for the  year and in :i more or less cocksure  tone bands ontdefiuitely the dividends  paid in 1012 and among them credits  tlie Nickel Plate of Camp Hedley with  $180,000 which is only one half of what  the Medley Gold Alining Company  paid their shareholders during the  year.  The error was quite inexcusable as  tlK! Chamber of Alines knows, drought  to know, that this company pays its  dividends quarterly arid they had paid  the amount credited to them in the  first three quarters willi another  quarter to the good. In the last  quarter they paid as much as during  the first three quarters put together  and this was made public a little after  the dividend was declared, shortly  after the middle of the month of  December. IF the Chamber of Alines  and the Alining Exchange are the  same organization the secretary  ought to be better informed, for a free  copy of the Hedley Gazette goes there  every week at the request of the  exchange, and the Gazette has supplied  the information, and other papers in  the interior and in Spokane had  published it.  The secretary says: "For some unaccountable reason theminingindustry  oii .the coast, for the last few years,  has received less notice in the press  and irr reports than Unit of other  portions of the province."  Now we think that it is not very  long since Portland canal was receiving all kinds of attention.in -.the.-, press  of the province and Hidden Creek  which appears' to fully deserve attention is not being neglected.

At last railroad building on thesouth  branch is no longer a promise, but a  thing of actual fact, and the day of  newspaper guessing and public disappointment is over. The doubting  Thomases down the valley, who from,  frequent false alarms have reached a  state of mind where all belief in the  possibility of track laying this winter  had disappeared, can now cast doubt  to the wind, for they are assured that  the cross ties are already in place for  several miles at this writing ami firmly  shod with two bands of steel. Afore-  over, the construction process is going  on 'every day as rapidly as a track  laying machine can vomit forth the  material to an active crew of muscular  laborcis. How long this activity is to  continue deponent sayeth not, but let  ns be satisfied that the construction  train is on the wing, and up to date  there has been no halt in proceedings  and the indications point to a coritina-  a| ion of t he good work.  The track is expected to reach  Tonasketthis week.  GENERAL NEWS  .1. Kit kup who has been government  agent at I'.ossland since the opening  of that c'liup has at his own request  been moved to the coast and will be  located at- Alberni.  The unrest, is said to be spreading in  India and the bomb outrage at Delhi  is not an isolated case.  Wm.

For  any infractions of the law that may  have to he proceeded against Iliad vises fines rather I ban imprisonment.  Most of laboring men nowadays are  striking for shorter hours, but tracklayers on the Canadian Northern are  st i iking for longer hours.  Castro, the stormy ex-prcsidcnt. of  Vcnczul.'i.is likely to be deported from  the United States as an undesirable.  Beginning January 1st, 1913, fourth  class ' matter* irr the United States is  made to include all kinds of merchandise, including farm .and factory  products, not lreretvifore���������'���������"- included,  except-perishable matter. Parcels will  be carried through the mail weighing  notrriorethan.il pounds nor greater  in size than. 72 inches in length and  girth combined. ���������  . The new parcels post is divided into  eight' postal zones. The first zone  will be an area within 50 miles radius  of any given post office.' The second  within 150 miles ; third within iJOii;  fourth, 6U0 ; fifth, 1,000 ; sixth, 1,-100 ;  seventh, 1,800; eight, all in excess of  the seventh zone.  This zone scheme is the basis for  determining distance and rates except that parcels up to four ounces,  regardless of distance will be charged  at a flat rate of one cent per- ounce.  Above that weight-up to the limit of  11 pounds the rates increase from the  first zone of 50 miles to the eight zone  of over 1.S00 mires.  The cost of carriage has been determined as follows :���������  1st  .Each  11  lb.  add'l  lbs  It. F.

Hates on smaller parcels up to five  pounds are low in comparison with  the express rates, but as the packages  increase in woightthey finallya ppro.-tcb  the express tarills.  The close of the year found  Charles  May, who had formerly worked at the  Nickel Plate, a prisoner in the lockup,  charged with committing an   indecent  assault   upon   Margaret   Ilea ley.  who  had for- most of the year been waitress  at the Grand Union Hotel.    The   complaint was made by the girl herself to  constable Sproule  who   took the man  into custody without warrant on  the  afternoon of  December  the 2.SUi  and  made no report of the circumstance to  the local magistrate until   well   on   in  the afternoon   of  .Monday.   December  IJOth.    It. is well   known   between   the  constable and the magistrate, that the  latter- who gives his" time and labor  to  ihc.-e indictable offence cases   without  a   cent   of   remuneration    makes   no  pretense of hearing  them   during  the  busiest time of the  week  for  him.-elf  hut will remand where necessary for-a  more convenient time.     In   this  case,  however, as the man had already   lain  so  long  in   the  lock-up   and    it    was  necessary that he   be   brought   up  for  either   hearing   or   remand   within  a  certain time, and exception was made  and sufficient time was given the same  evening by the magistrate to   remand  him    until   after    New     Year's   Day  When Thursday,  the clay  set  for  the  hearing arrived it was found that   the  girl had left for the   United  Slates on  the afternoon of the day before.    That  she had gone to avoid giving evidence  and   thereby   seeking   to    clear    the  culprit in that way, was quite evident,  but whether the scheme was  her own  or  had   been   planned   for   her-   is   a  matter for opinion.    One thing is very  sure arrd that is that she compromises  her own   reputation   considerably  by  doing so, if a. reputation   can   be  compromised   where   the demeanor, and  fictions were so  indiscreet as  to give  rise   to   the   talk   which     had     heen  indulged   in.       The   case   was   again  reinatidedailit-il Saturday .to-give time  to get her  back,   but as  she did   not  letui n the case was gone on with  and  the man did the wise thing to own up  to what   he  had  done and   make  his  statement which was taken down and  sent-  forward   with   his commitment.  Should he elect for speedy' trial   when  he goes to Kamloops, as he undoubtedly should, it   will  doubtless  result in  his dismissal  in   the absence of  prosecution.      Meanwhile   it   will   be   a  lesson to hini  in  a good   many  ways  and  should   he   choose   to   seek   em  ploymeiit in  Hedley    again    he   will  arrange his  plans differently all   the  way through.    The details in this case,  are given thus fully not   because  it is  deemed   of  sufficient   importance   to  warrant it but to show some   who  are  prone to talk that  they don't always  know   what  they are   talking about,  and also to  give  the   public  accurate  data   upon     which     to     base     their  conclusions.

On    Saturday    last    district   game  warden ('. Schisslcr of   Princeton   had  John Bciim,-n settler lately   from   the  .United Slates, up before   A.   Megraw.  magistrate,   on   a   charge    containing  three counts, all of which were in contravention of the Game Prelection Act  ���������these wore: having deer meat in his  possession on theHrdday oi"  January,  exceeding the bag   limit   and .hunting  deer  in   British   Columbia ' without   a  license within six mouths afler   entering the province.    The   game   warden  conducted    his   own     case    and     the  'defendant was   represented   by   I.   II.  Mallet, barrister,   of Greenwood.    To  prove his case the   prosecutor   himself  gave  evidence.      in   reference   to   the  count of having venison  in   possession  he testified   of  having,   under   search,  wan-ant obtained in   lYinci'lon. found  a couple, of pieces   of   venison hanging"  up orr a hook   outside   the  defendants  door and produced the pieces in court;  as ti) exceeding the bag   limit   he   had  found six hides of deer that-he believed  to   have   been   killed    within   a   i'o.w  months,   and    in    support  of  having  hunted   without   a    licence   within  a  period of six months: he placed defend  ant.s father  in   the   witness   box  and  ascertained that they had crossed   the  boundary line   into. British   Columbia  on or about the 27th of .lune last.-   The  defendant   testified    that,     the     meat  found had been thrown out in the yard  at the end of   the  open  season- as '-required by the game law and had   been  picked up hy. him .and  placed on   the-  hook where they had heen found until  they could be boiled fur the   chickens.  In   this   he   was  corroborated.'by the  evidence of his   wife,    lie  swore   that  he had   killed   four   deer  during  the  open season arid his wife testified that,  unless he had killed deer  that  he  did  not bring home he had only killed four  as   that   was   the   number      he     bad  hi ought  horne'._ _Coun.seL.���������fpi'__M1e ..d.e.r..  fence   cross-examined    rigidly dui-ing  the hearing and   made a strong  plea  for a liberal interpretation of  the  law  (in various points  which  he indicated.  The bench held the count of exceeding  the  bag  limit .unproved.    There  was  reasonable  doubt  as   to   whether   the  intent of the law was  violated   in   the--  matter of having venison in'possession  and the defendant had the right to the-  benefit of that doubt.    The   matter  of  hunting without a licence- within' six  months after coming to  the  province  was    held     to     have     been     proven.  Counsel for-  the  defense asked  for a  suspension of tlie sentence on   various  grounds.    The bench, in   partial  compliance,   reserved   judgment   pending  reference   to   the   Attorney General's  department as the penalty  laid  down  in the Act seemed unduly severe and  there were extenuating circumstances  attending the   case   which   warranted  reference  to  a   higher   source   before  inflicting so  seven.'  a   penalty, as   it  meant the payment of $150 in addition  to the costs of the court.  So far as the game warden is concerned then* is no wish to convey the  idea, that he has shown any disposition  to in any way exceed cither his powers  or his duty, lie is simply given the  law lo enforce as il is and he is trying  to do it, and as a result <>f hi- efforts  there is a far more whiilcsiiinc r e.-pect  of the .game law and disposition to  obey it than there has ever been in  the (iislriet before.

That it- has  many excellent points and is inmost  of its provisions well calculated to  preserve the. game is very true, and  ' for that part of it we have reason to  be thankful; but- there, are many  other features that mar.it by making  it an instrument 'for oppression irr the  hands of any who may have any" inclination tu misuse it.  A law under which it would be difficult to secure, a conviction for an infraction would afford poor protection  to the game, and the present law has  steered as far. away from that evil as  it is possible to get. Where, a hunter'  is not- disposed to walk the straight  and narrow way a live game warden  will have little trouble in landing him  on some one of its many prongs. One  of the most effective features of the  law which makes it operate in the  direction indicated is that of laying  the onus of proof on the accused.  That part of it is all right, and it  would be a mistake to change that in  any way.  Of the weak features a serious defect is that of permitting so much  chopping and (-hanging to be done by  order in-cmuicil and placing so much  power in the hands of the Provincial  Game Warden who is in many cases  vested with powers and privileges  above those of the legislature itself,  for there art; cases where statutory  enactments may be superseded at his  whim, if he should happen to get an  unduly big hold on the executive ear-,  and there is reason to fear- that he.  has. What makes that feature all  the more serious is that a certain  niggardliness in the administration of  the Act makes little or no provision  for giving the public due notice of the  changes that are made by order-in-  couneil for they are not promugated  in the public papers which is the  proper medium by which to reach the  people who have no opportunity of  seeing these orders-in-council as they  appear in the official B. C. Gazette.  Another bad feature of some of these  orders iii-council is the obscurity in  meaning produueed by excessive verbosity and a, needless juggling with  names in description of the different  species.   For the purposes of the Act  it should be :-.ullle.ii-iil to (li-tiuguisb  between caribou, moose, mountain  sheep, mountain goals and the eoin-  inon deer, and this mixing up of the  names Columbia or coast deer, mule  deer or white-tailed or black-tailed  deer is senseless rot and should be  discontinued, I'm it answeis no good  purpose and lends only lo confuse and  obscure.   ' " " " Inlaw as it stands is to lose sight entirely.of the wise intent of the law. Take  for instance the clause or clauses relating to having venison in possession;  there are a hundred ways in which an  absolute liter al application would be  clearly wrong and utterly opposed t.o  either law, justice or common sense.  The. real intent must have been to  prevent men during the open season  from slaughtering deer in quantity  and slocking up their larders for half  the year. When the law permits a  man to kill a deer- on December loth  it-surely does not .mean that he and  all his neighbors to whom he may  give portions, are to gorge themselves  for the space of five or ten days as the.  case may be, in order to have none in  their possession by the time which  tlie law now states it will be. unlawful  to have in the. possession-; and neither  could it have meant that they should  waste oi-destroy what small portions  may be left. A circular letter to.game  ���������wardens and magistrates showing  what leeway ihi'.y might observe in  in -rases where small quantities are  found in-private dwellings would help  and should not entail much trouble or  cost in the particular 'department of  the'government that has to do- with  game and game regulations.  What is needed is a caieful re-enactment of the law on both sensible and  scientific lines or we. will soon have no  game to protect. The people are not  opposed to a rigid game law nor yet  to I lie efficient enforcement of such.  On the contrary, they want it. From  Sept. 2nd to December 15 is altogether  too long to kill deer. Hundreds of  buck are killed every year after the  15th of November that are not fit for  use and are left to rot in the hills.

He was .-is far cast as Bran-  don and as far north as Edmonton and  during the trip met many from the  Siinilkameen.

It is more than annoying to the coal company to have their  operations hampered in this way after  they have gone to the expense of  equipping their mine with plant to  handle a much bigger output than the  rolling stock of the Great Northern  appears to he a hie to transport for  them. The railways are in the habit  of complaining that branch lines'do  not pay because the districts into  which they are built cannot supply  sufficient tonnage for them, but this  shortage of cars for Similkameen coal  and the fact also that the Hedley Gold  Mining Company had to wait weeks  for the new boiler they recently installed because no cars could he got  to haul it irr, docs not help very much  to bear out their contention.  and the wage claim*- the ones likely to  do tin* most harm would he appeased  and till'chances niade brighter-'for all  to get out.  Hedley experienced a coal famine  last week. There is plenty of it al  Princeton but the Great Northern  could'nt supply the cars to bring it  down.

Law of Vancouver went up  the line on Saturday to inspect placer  operations on the Tulameen in which  he is interested. He had been called  by a message from the superintendent  in charge of operations informing him  that the workings had struck the old  channel for which they were drifting  and both gold and platinum were  plentifully in evidence. The old days  of placer activity on the Siinilkameen  and its tributaries bid fair to be revived.  The latest advices regarding the  Golden Zone affair's are said to be a  little more favorable for* settlement  than formerly, Effort is being made  by interested parties on the coast to  raise enough money to pay off the  more insistent judgments and the  wage claims, and giving assurance to  the other claimants of full settlement  a little later on. Should any holder of  a judgment whose'claim is small compared with the total indebtedness insist.  on execution and the property should  go to the sheriff's hummer it would not  likely bring enough to settle the  claims of half a dozen of the larger of  them arrd the buyer would he the only  man who would have any show to  make gain from it. The .Tenckes  Machine Co. who supplied the mill  which was not paid for in full are said  to he the most bloodthirsty of the  batch at present. 'Their-judgment is  of lorrg standing arrd amounts to  something over $1000.00. If money  enough is got  together  to  pay these  ' Now that the days are beginning to  lengthen from both ends each day  from this end will begin to count.  Alieady the net gain amounts to  about 20 minutes.  The beginning of the week found  Hedley in the throes of the first real  storm of the winter. The cold was  not very severe but when accompanied  by wind and snow it begun to resemble  somewhat- the .old time hack east  winter storms that always meant  snow blockades. If Tweddle's auto  can manage to maintain its schedule  through this storm it should he good  for most of the winter.

The Voigtaeal with the B.C. Copper  Co. for- his group of claims orr Copper  Mountain is now known to be off for  the present. Nevertheless this,does  not mean that the company ai-e going  to pull out from Copper Mountain for  they own outright a number of promising claims apart from those under  bond from Mr. Voigt; besides it is not  improbable that a compromise will be  arrived at between them and the deal  go through on modified terms. A  report reached here last week that the  B C.'s foreman in charge of the works  had been arrested at the instance of  Victor Voight for taking the drill  cores off the ground, but the rumor  appears to have been exaggerated.  I. li. Hallett, barrister and police  magistrate of Greenwood, was in'town  over Sunday, having corrre in on Saturday to look after the Golden Zone  matter which he has in hand for the  lienholders. While here he was retained hy John Beam to defend him  on the game law case. Mr. Hallett is  also solicitor for the B.C. Copper- Co.  and had been up at Princeton on  business connected with the company's  operations in the Similkameen.  A funny story is told on Mi*. I. H.

Sharp of  Penticton who had been relieving at  Bank of-Commerce hero and.the .well-  known Billy Bryant.who was" on Iris-  way to Nararnata to shoot biscuits at  a.mulligan hunt.  Miss Violet Kirby entertained her  friends on."*Tuesday livening at the  Keremeos Hotel when about twenty  guests were present and engaged in  dancing until after midnight. All  were delighted with the enjoyable  evening spent.  On Monday evening Mr. and Mrs.  Keeler entertained a party of young  folks at their residence. Mr. George  Christie brought down a fine gramophone with excellent dance records  which made lint; music for dancing  and all enjoyed a good time.  Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Trrrgley returned  on Tuesday from Calgary where they  spent the Christmas holidays and  report having a good time. The  weather was fine all the time they  were away. Mr. Trngley resumed'his  duties yesterday with a good attendance at the local academy.  H. G. Freeman of tho Canadian Bank  ' of Commerce, Princeton, is at present  releiving teller at the local hank.  The Tweddle auto is still on the go  and making good time. On Monday  last after a very bad wind storm the  road was bad to travel owing to fallen  timber'. In one place nearGoodehap's  a team had to be requisitioned lo plow  a way through a snowdrift. After  this eight good sized trees were encountered, these also after a miniature  logging bee were dispatched with.  Anyway the car got through and was  back in Penticton in time for supper.  Wei by V old reliable hoise stage  caiiying His Majesty's mail between  Ken-Mien- and Penticton, has, we  believe broken the record for the past  year in keeping to the  schedule  time.  Kcremeos-Pentictoii Mail Sta^c.  The auto stage leaves Kerenieos lot  Penticton, Tuesdays, Thursdays and  Saturday at 5 p.m.  Single fare $7.50, Return $1-1.00  The   auto   stage will   run an   excursion  everv   Sunday   from Penticton   to Medley  and   return, leaving   Penticton .at 8 a. hi.  and, returning leaving Hedley at 4 p.m.  Phone 1-1, Penticton \V. E. Welbv  Out "of .'tie bundled and fifty six times  out of this town has, with the exception of three tiniest kept within the  Una* limit of being on time. Of the  one hundred and fifty seven trips in,  with .one exception, has never been  more than a few minutes off schedule.  We think this is very creditable  especially when we look to Oroville,  Keremeos and Princeton mail train  with its spectacular flights to keep on  time. This of course, is not an  aeroplane we refer to.  We see by the Calgary Herald that  the Rev. Geo. Kinney, very well known  in these parts, delivered a lectine in  the Central Methodist Church on  "Exploring in tin/ Canadian Rockies  and the Capture of Mt.-Robson " and  recently lectured before the Geographical Society in Washington, D.C.  This society was so enthusiastic over  the views presented and the information given that thi y desired the lecture  repeated. ,s.  W. J. Armstrong of Shingle Creek  (better known 'as Billy) sailed into  town last Friday accompanied by a  couple of gentlemen from Wet'aska.win  Sask., by the name of Rix Billy took  them down the valley to look over- his  father's place. -The weather was not  of the best, nevertheless the brothers  Rix were very-much impressed by the  appearance of: the lower valley and'  intend comingagain when the weather  is a little-more favorable.
