Burne, Temple & Tunbridge  Solicitors,  Notaries Public,  Conveyancers, Etc.  PENTICTON, British Columbia.  While details are still lacking, a  tolegram which came to Mr. Creelman  at the end of last week told the welcome news that the litigation which  threatened to tie up the Kingston for  an indefinite period had come to an  end, and there was to be at last an  early resumption of work on the property.  The wording of the telegram which  told of the  termination   of the  suit  seemed to indicate that the settlement  had  not come about as a court deci  sion in favor of C. H. Brooks and associates but had been  more likely a case  of settlement out of court and that  concessions ��������� had been  made on both  sides,   but what the exact nature of  the settlement has been  will  not be  known   until   Mr.  Brooks ai-i-ives in  Hedley  where he is expected shortly.  Mr. Creelman is confident that little  time will be lost in getting work started and Mr. Van  Meter a mining engineer who has acted in  the capacity of  consulting engineer for the Redeem (  able Investment Co.  was on the-way:  to Hedley to make a' thorough examination of the  property with a view to  laying out the course of development  which would be followed.  ; The Kingston group, is a property  that offer's every encouragement for a  liberal expenditure of, funds to prove  up the ore bodies.   The group consists  of four claims,  the Kingston,  War-  horse,   Metropolitan  and  Grandview,  and on each of the first three considerable development work has been done  and ore of good payable grade uncovered, but the work done was not sufficient Lo  enable a reasonably safe estimate to be  made as to the extent or  average   value.      Like    the   .. Nickel  Plate itself,  and on most other claims  of the camp  that have had development work done on them, L the grade  is not even and varies from high grade  to  medium  and low and   frequently  shading off into  unpayable grade, but  as the quantity of payable grade seems  ample to  warrant success  the holders  of the  bond have no excuse to   dally  along as the Kingston Company have  been  doing for- the past  eight or ten  years to the detriment of the camp  and their own very great loss, if failure to realize what was  within their  reach is to be reckoned as a loss.  The operations of the new concern  will be watched with sympathetic interest arrd they themselves, like the  property, are rrow to be deemed on  trial.  Vernon people were shocked on  New Years Day to learn of the burning clown of the residence of Alex McDonnell on the BX ranch in the early  hours of New Years morning and  death of Mrs. McDonnell who was  burned to death in the fire, only a few  bones of the unfortunate woman being recovered from the ashes.  All that appears to be known of the  matter is that tlie fire was discovered  by the deceased women and in the  first excitement of the fire she was engaged in conveying some of thesleep-  ing children to an outhouse while the  husband and eldest daughter were  trying to put out the fire and failing  this, to remove valuables.  The absence of tlie mother being  noticed a search was made for her  in all parts of the house that could be  reached but. nothing could be seen or  heard of her. A few calcined bones  that were identified by medical men  as human bones found in the ashes is  the only clue to her fate, and it1 is  thought that she had gone rip into the  attic and there been overcome by the  smoke.  RECORD BROKEN  December Was  the Biggest  Month the Nickel Plate  Mine Ever Made  TULAMEEN PLATINUM-  BEATS ALL FORMER IX EVERYTHING  Tonnage Mined and   Milled  -Beats All \  Previous  Records by 174 Tons���������Extraction for Month the Highest Ever  Made.  TO EXPEDITE BUSINESS  Borden Government Has a Plan to Refer  Estimates to Special Committee  Ottawa,. Jan 9.���������One of the plans  which the government is considering  for expediting public business, is the  committing of the estimates to a special committee which can canvass  tnenr informally, calling in civil servants for explanations, and in general  getting the work done outside the  time of the House.  The Courtney Commission of 1908  recommended this plan, though the  Laurier government took no notice.  The plan seems on the. verge of being  adopted in Britain. Lasc December  a' deputation of over 200 members of  the British House representing all  parties, waited upon Prime Minister  Asquith arid urged a change. After  consideration Mr. Asquith gave a favorable reply, and ic seems likely that  the plan will be adopted next session.  The Borden government is following  the idea closely, and the relegation of  the detailed consideration of the estimates to a special committee seems  likely to come soon. It should at once  cause all expenditure to be watched  more closely and save much time of  the House.  General superintendent. G.P.' Jones,  having lorrg ago beaten the biggest  records of all previous managers must  now turn in to beat his own and last  month they apparently did it clean  and slick. The tonnage of ore mined  and milled for the month was 5514  tons against 5340 which they mined  and treated in November.  The recovery for the month showed  the grade to have been a bit higher  than usual hut the percentage of extraction was considerably higher- than  eyer before and approaches closely the  full hundred per cent.'  At the mill things are going along  moie smoothly than they have ever  done in "any previous winter, aim at  the mine, the development is going  forward steadily keeping the ore reserves well up and the amount being  put in  sight all  the time  at   a rate.   . ,    ,  which is leaving the rat- of shipping j ^  ,,f  McK{,v'  Sumb  behind.  Operations of a Company Formed to Exploit Platinum Deposits  (Nows-Advertiser.)  According to statements of officers  of the British Columbia Platinum Co.,  Ltd;, with head offices in this city,  platinum in large quantities has been  found on their property at the Tula-  ineen river at Slate Creek in the Siinilkameen district in this province.  From samples of ore sent to the Department of Mines at Ottawa the government's chemist has made a report  ] oir his analysis to the effect that the  assay of the material was found to  contain per ton of 2000 lbs. of concentrates, platinum at the rate of 521.57  ozs.;  osiniridiunr at the  rate of   58.82  ozs.; gold at the rate of 75.82 ozs. and  silver irr a very small quantity. As  the standard prices of platinum, os-  iniridiiim and gold are .$40, .$04aud $20  per oz., respectively, it means that  this-would yield about .$80,000 to the  tori of concentrates. To obtain a ton  of concentrates it is necessary to sift  about 15 tons ot plalinifeious, and  auriferous black sand.  Preparatory development on the  pioperty has been proseerrted during  last summer and will ha resumed early  in the spring.  No stock is being offered for sale in  the company, which is capitalized for  $200,000.  Mr. William Henderson, Vancouver  a director of the National Drug &  Chemical Company, is the president,  and Mr. Gilbert Blair, likewise of this  Blair <fc Co.

HANDING IT OUT STRAIGHT  Here is how the Slocan Record puts  the question of supporting home industry to the people of the Slocan district.    The Record says:  "We can do your Job Printing if  you are irot "dead stuck" on sending  out for it. Wo do not care to take  business away from printing offices in  Toronto, Montreal. Winnipeg, Vancouver and Nelson, out, we arc spending our time and money in the district  and would like an even break with the  outside firms. Give us a chance to  open a pot occasionally. Some of you  business men who buy everything  East and sell in the Slocan at 20 to 500  per cent, profit, are making $100 to  the printer's $1, still you send outside  to save from 5 cents to 50 cents on 1000  letter heads or envelopes. If eyeryone  did tin; same where would you be?  Don't be all pig. Open your soul or  whatever substitute you have for a  soul, and give others a chance to make  a living.

Toronto, Ont., January 5���������"The attorney-general of British Columbia  has given his consent to various prosecutions demonstrating that it was his  purpose to see the law enforced. The  effect of the Sunday selling judgment  of Mr. Justice Middleton in Toronto  has been felt as far west as British Columbia". These are extracts from the  report of Rev, W. M. Rochester, secretary of the Lord's Day Alliance submitted yesterday.  He says it is "gratifying to note  that Canada holds a high place among  the nations of the world in her practical recognition of the Lord's Day." j  Canada, has the best Sabbath of any  nation in the world.  WANT TAX ON  SHINGLES  ORE TRAIN,   NICKEL PLATE  MINE  GRAIN GOES TO DULUTH  New Outlet for Canadian Grain to Relieve Congestion  Regina, Jan. 1���������The Canadian Pacific arrd Canadian Northern railways  have agreed to grant a through rate  on Western Canada, wheat to Dultith  the same rate as now obtains to Poit  Arthur,    eighteen cents from Regina.  The C. N. R. has only four million  bushels capacity left at Port Arthur,  which will be filled irr the course of the  next week or two. Once this is filled,  C. N. R. cars will haul to Dultith,  where there is unlimited capacity.  Wheat will be shipped in bond and  the relief thus afforded farmers will  he considerable.  The C. P. R. will use the Soo line.  The demand for relief was imperative  as the railways cannot move cars and  farmers and merchants are suffering  for ready money  STRONG TOW HORSES  Forty Graat Engines  Will Be  Required  on the Panama Canal  Washington, .Tan. 9���������No less than  forty big locomotives will be required  for handling ships in the locks of the  Panama canal, for under no circumstances will a ship be allowed to navigate the locks under her own power.  Two locomotives will tow each ship  and two will be fastened to the stern  to act as brakes.  The canal commission has just  awarded a contract of one locomotive  to the Genaral Electric; Company, and  if it is satisfactory, thirty-nine others  will be called for at a total cost, of  $-198,010.  Canadian Lumbermen Ask a Fair Deal-  U. S. Maintains 50 per cent.  Duty Against Them  Vancouver, B. C. Jan. S���������Vancouver  shingle manufacturers today petitioned the federal government to impose  an import duty on shingles from the  United States. Shingles are now imported duty five and 40.000,000 came  in last year, chiefly from the eastern  states. Eastern Canadian concerns  have been practrcally driven out of  the United States because of the duty  of 50 per cent, per ton imposed by  America.  CONCERNING DISMISSALS  N e \ vs- Ad vortisor  The 111 diMuissnls of which Mr.  Monk is accused proved to be the dis-  eharge of temporary workers engaged  previous to the election. They would  have had to go if the government had  been sustained. Mr. Nantel has dismissed four persons against 44 dismissed in his department by the Liberals  after the election of 1890. These four  had sinecures and will not be replaced.  Col. Sam Hughes, minister of Militia, favors Canada giving a dreadnought like other overseas dominions.  GENERAL NEWS  Rumors are extant of a provincial  eleetiorr in B. C. in March.  More offender!-connected with the  Los Angeles dynamiters are being  gathered in.

Borden". A  seat irr the Privy Council of Great  Britain is an honor that comes to  most colonial statesmen after knighthood, hut in Premier Borden's case it  has come before.  There  is every  indication   that  the  Hudson's Bay railway will go on to  completion    a   public-owned   railway  from start to finish. When Mr. Borden and his following urged government ownership in .connection with  the Grand Trunk Pacific in 1904 the  Liberals accused him of playing to  the gallery and said that the Conservatives did not mean what they were  saying and would not put their professions into practice if they had the opportunity. It will apparently soon be  in order for Mr. La Uriel's supporters  to do some taking back.  An article of some length   on  Camp  Hedley, written  by   VV. Oliphant Bell  appears   in   the    Vancouver   World,  which    undertakes     to   discuss     the  somewhat complex    problem   "Why  has  Hedley  remained  so long   a one  ���������mine camp?"   That the writer of the  article had only secondhand  information upon which to base his story  and  form   his  conclusions   is apparent at  various points throughout the article ;  neyertheless  the  information    which  had   been  given   him    was    in  many  respects well to the point.    In dealing  with the geology of the c;mip and the  mode  of i.ccuirence  of the ore bodies  the article   was   a bit hazy, but  in   all  probability the informant-} were more  to blame for this  than  the   writer of  the article.    The  references  to other  properties   were    for    the   most   part  timely   and that is a phase   of the situation in   Camp  Hedley   upon  which  the public ootsidu  should be posted at  every   opportunity.    These,   however,  wo   would   like   to  have seen  a   little  more accurate, for  while much of this  portion of  the   article   was   all  right,  there   were   patches    here   and   there  that   wen:   a   Lr-ilie*   steam boaty     and  Camp Hedley doesn't need any of that  .sort of thing.    But it is so seldom that  Vancouver papers  give any attention  to the camp   we hate   to criticise  any  inaccuracies  or shortcomings  in   this  case   and we  are  sure   the   writer  of  the   World's  article    would give  the  camp a truer and therefore  more valuable write-up  if he could get here to  obtain his information at first hand.

L. G. MacHaffie, formerly manager  of the Bank of B. N.

There have, heen some generous instalments of the beautiful snow during the past week and the supply on  hand right now is considerably above  Hedley's average. If we were to have  Our choice between lots of snow and  hard frost we would nearly all be disposed to take it out in snow.  ��������� Mr.  Van Meter, M.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON  GENERAL NEWS  Monday to make a thorough examination of the Kingston preparatory to  the commencement of mining operations on a scale unknown heretofore  on the Kingston. Mi. Brooks has left  New York en route for Hedley and is  expected here in a few days.  Matters are progressing nicely for  the Hospital masquerade ball on Friday 19th. The dance will be held in  Shatford's hall as before and the supper will be served in Fraternity,hall.  Good music is being provided and the  costuiners are busy these days settling  the momentous question "What shall  I wear?"  In last week's issue the Gazette  made reference to the withdrawal of a  hotel licence from the great Northern  hotel here, but the paper had only  been off the press a couple of hours  until a- telegram was received from  Victoria stating that it was a mistake  ���������ind the licence would be forthcoming.  The mistake (if it was all a mistake)  was a stupid one, but to turn it to  profit it would he well for all concerned to regard it as a sort of warning  dream and act accordingly.  A window clock or regulator has  been added by James Clarke to his  jewellery store attractions but this  latest is more than an attraction for it  has public usefulness to recommend it.  The dial is large and plain rind can be.  seen at considerable distance both  day and night, a light being kept in  rear of the dial and the time is got by  Mr. Clarke from the Great Northern  oveiy morning.  The rumor that was around town at  the end of the week that the Pollock  was to work in the spring does not appear to have been well founded. While  it is .possible that they may there is  ���������apparently nothing to justify the belief at present as neither the secretary  nor any of the local shareholders appear to know anything of it and they  should be the first to learn. One of  the sources��������� of the information that  has heen cited is certainly not to be  depended on.  Isn't it funny that a rancher who  gets here in B. C. three times as much  as he could get in Ontario or Nova  Scotia for a dozen of eggs, a pound of  butter, a bushel of potatoes or a box  of apples or plums and wants besides  5 or 10 cents more than the top notch  price that things are selling at, will  kick at giving $2.00 a year for the  local paper because he used to "get  the local paper back home for a dol  lar":j That kind of settler for B. C. is  the kind we would all be happy to do  without and real estate boosters will  confer' a favor on everybody concerned  if they will leave them sitting right  where they are instead of trying to induce then'i to come to B. C.  If tlui  frost continues as strenuous  as it has  heen for the  past few weeks  there will he an abundant ice crop.   In  fact.the  crop would be  worth more if  it were  harvested earlier  in   the win-  .ter instead  of wailing   until it gets as  thick as  it has  been for the Ias-t   few  winters  when   harvested.    When the  ice   is  allowed   to got  too   thick  the  blocks   become too big  for convenient  handling  and too  big for   economical  rise* when   being taken out in the summer.    Too   thick ice  is also  harder to  saw   sir-night and   when   sa.wed   by a  cross-eyed manipulator the error is exaggerated   in   tht!  thicker   block   and  harder to pack away in the manner in'  which it  will keep  to the best advantage.    Those   who   pub  up   their own  ice (arrd  most of  thorn do) should not  pay more than half the price for extra  big   blocks  cut   crooked,   for  it  isn't  worth more tlran half.  .SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  Cobalt mines have already paid over  twenty-eight million dollars in dividends. Sixteen mines have figured in  the dividend paying list and ot these  there are nine that have each a million and over to their credit.  The,Timber revenue of B. C. for the  past month amounted to over $225,000.  Most of it came from west of the Cascades.  Senior constable Thomas Smith, of  Vancouver, has been appointed to succeed Colin S. Campbell as chief licence  inspector and provincial police.  Judge Wilson of Kootenay sent in  Ins resignation to the Minister of Justice at Ottawa. As yet no appointment of a successor has been made.  "Moonshine" Wright, a crook who  has operated in the Northwest and  given the Mounted Police a lot of  trouble, is again figuring in the disappearance of a money parcel stolen  from the Canadian Northern express.  Shiploads of discarded Chinese pigtails are arriving from the Orient consigned to New York to be made up  into puffs and rats for feminine adornment.   Fie, ladies; "fie for shame."  The Great Northern railway are  said to have purchased 900 acres of  land at Port Arthur, Ontario, for railway terminals and intend to put up  machine shops costing several millions.  Bishop de Pencier has announced  that a large cathedral for the diocese  of .Westminster is to he erected at  Vancouver. The intention is to make  it one of the most, noted church edifices in Canada and a noted architect  has been employed to prepare plans.  Exports from Canada to South Africa are increasing rapidly and have  now assumed large proportions, the  increase for last year over the preceding year being considerably over a  million. The exports have been apples  agiicultural implements, machinery of  various kinds, 'motor cars and dairy  products.  Residents of Kootenay indignantly  deny the statement that there is ice  on that lake. They admit that the  Arrow lakes sometimes freeze, but  Kootenay lake, never.  Hon. G. E. Foster, Minister of Trade  and Commerce, is going to the West  Indies after prorogation to confer* with  the -authorities there with a view to  bringing about closer trade relations  between Canada and that colony.  Loggers on New Years day felled a  large tree on a dwelling where a man  named Arthur H. Smith and his family were seated at dinner. The wife  was fatally injured and two others  were hurt.  Toronto voted that an underground  railway  was premature for that city.  The St. Lawrence was open for navigation on New Years for the first time  in 34 years.  There were 961 coroner's inquests in  Montreal in 1911 and as some of the  cases investigated involved the deaths  of more than one, there were more  than 1000 violent deaths during the  year.
