Mr. Brookes does not like our rdeits of government  supervision of the financial standing of shoestring mining Operators, rind he  takes upon, himself to speak on behalf of the government in the mutter. If he.  has any misgivings as to whether the Gazette has the interests' of the cainp at  heart he can quiet his fears on that score. There is no dotihfc that his own  interest in the welfare of his own pocket will not likely lie cn-lled in question  no matter who else may suffer us the result of his riiethods.1* If Mr-.

H. T. GAHAN  Barrister, Solicitor, Ktc.  MONKY TO LOAN  PENTICTON,  B.C.  Mr. I. H. Hallett, harrister,of Greenwood arrived in town  on   Monday, to  handle.tire matter of the  mechanics.'  liens against the property of the Gold  Plate Mines Go., Limited, in behalf of  the lien-holders,  of  whom   there  are  somewhere  about  twenty.    It   began  to look to the lienholders,  who have  given the principals  every  chance  in  the world to square up without adding  more costs on them, that the delay in  Victoria was for the  express   purpose  ot   seeing   whether    the   lien-holders  might:   not ��������� let    their   claitrrs   lapse  by going beyond the  thirty-one days  allowed hy the Act for commencing  action in the county court.   This is the  third   hatch   of,, liens   or actions for  wages  that have been fyled  against  the Golden Zone.   The first batch was  in connection   with   the operations of  the original owners Marks, Brodhagen  -.JinjljMiU.'-IRliTi.^ir.'rc_J.ie.smest  claiiirant.  in   that    instance   was   the   Jeriekos  Machine Company which supplied the.  stump mill and other, mine equipment  and other jtidgments ' still ;unsatisfied  obtained at that time were for* wages.  The second lot were against the Golden  Zone Company when'various liens for  wages were fyled, the cases entered in  the County Court arrd judgments Ob  tained but no execution ever followed.  This time it is not at all likely that the  creditors will be so lenient or so patient  and if-the money he not ��������� forthcoming  .the property is likely to go the hammer.''  All these things tend to give  u property u bud  name when  it muy  not,  and in this case apparently does  not,  deserve it.    In every instance they ran  into debt irr an ill-advised manner and  chaos worse confounded is  the  result  of it all.      While  it  might seem   like  undue  meddling on  the part of the  Government with   private enterprise  it   is nevertheless  time  that stricter  supervision of operations be  taken   to  ���������prevent   men   and    merchants   being  victimized    hy    irresponsible   par-ties  who will  undertake   operations  thut  they lire not in u position to carry orrt.  A rigid  supervision  by   the   Government of the bank account of all  who  undertake work of this kind is required and if the money is not on   hand to  meet obligations being or about to be  incurred the work  should be stopped  summarily.    It-'is'hot enough to place  a law of thut kind oir the statute.  The  niain thing is to make ample provision  for- its enforcement.  TRY THE  Hedley Gazette  for  Fine Job Printing-  E. E. Burr  General   Blacksmith  Hedley, B. C.  Horse-shoeing and all  Blacksmith Work  Promptly attended to.  Pipe-fitting done.

Aicgruw,  Managing Editor,  ������������������Hedley Gazette," Hedley, B.C.  Dear Sir,���������I have in my hands a  copy of tire " Gazette" d-ited Dec. 10,  1912. Orr the front page ��������� an article  appears . dealing with the " Golden  Zone." I ;tin writing you for the purpose of better informing you us to the  true conditions. You may publish  this letter or not, as you see fit.  I must take exception to the article  that you have published in  regard   to  ���������the property   arrd   its. ..management;  first, ynii personally never knew  any  thing  as   to   the    inside    workings;  you knew nothing about the  trouble,  that has been   brought  about or  the  occasion  therefor.    That being true, I  think it is wrong on your put t to write  editorials or articles and publish  them  wherr you do not know- what you aie  dealing with.    I know-that  you want  to be.fair and  want to do the right  -ttring^icalhtiineS;'^  conditions from   time   to  time sway  *you from the right'-'line  of vrsioning.  Your article above referred   to  speaks,  of. the   Government demanding that  examination be made and  before any  liability be incurred that evidence be  shown the Government  officials .that'  so much money was deposited  in   the  bunk.   Thut   itself   is .an   impossible  condition ��������� first,    because   it   is   not  practical; second, because the Government   would   not   consider   it   for   u  moment;     third,     even   though   the  money were so deposited in   the  bunk  it could be drawn out within a given  number of hours, which  was done  in  this instance.    When'  I left Victoria  for Hedley all  money necessary  was  deposited in the Bank of British North  America and various sums us needed  from time to time  were- to  be  transmitted to the brunch Bunk irr Hediey.  One of the main  members of the  institution became real estate  mad, us  most people do  who strike Victoria,  arrd he started building a $25,000 house  when he should have built  perhaps a  $2,000 hori.se.    He had the promise of  the Bank of u certain loan.     Afterwards the Bunk refused   to   make   the  loan,   therefore,  he  culled    upon   the  company's money to meet his contracts  and save his Victoria property.    That  is the whole story.  I ditl not employ a man nor did I  secure a dollar's worth of goods in  Hedley that I did not only believe, but  know that the money was in the bank  to cover-. On account of the mistake  of another the money could not come  through.  I can' understand your interest in  the Camp and the various things that  take place from time to time, but I  think, Mr. Megraw, that you make a  mistake in publishing an article that  incites and rrrakes trouble rather than  peace!. Every claim will be paid, and  paid shortly, and by myself.. In.the  meantime I am going to ask you to  keep your hands off the proposition.  Either forget it, let it alone, or if you  think you have occasion  to fight it,  fight it like h .���������Yours truly,  C. H. BROOKS.  The Gazette believes ingivingfull credit for anything which any individual  or publication accomplishes and we are free to accord to the. Nelson News all  the credit that is coming to it for its special number issued on January sixth,  and called its "' Annual Review." It was in many respects an excellent number  and showed a great deal of enterprise on the part of that paper-, but it has no  right to be called an "Annual Review," for so far as this camp.is concerned, at  all events, it has no right to .-������iy such name.  The writcuj) of Camp Hedley which it contained was a verbatim reproduction of what appeared in that paper- last July and was re-copied in the Hcdley  Gazette on July 25th and credited to the Nelson News. While giving the  News credit for an excellent write-up we pointed out where it was in error  wherr it stated that the output here was between $2,500,000 and $2,700,000 up  to the end of 1911. To show that their figures were wrong we gave in the  same issue the following true details of output;  Value up to end of 1907 $1,017,229.40  1908, 44,068 tons at $18.35 per ton       588,307.80  1909, 31,100 tons at $11.58 per ton        3(50.138.00  1910, 44,828 tons at $12.31 per ton ''.    551,832.68  1911, 57,815 tons at $11.99 per ton        693.201.85  Allowing for first half 1912 the same .as first half 1911     316.000.92  Tola 1 $-1,157,310.74  Yet strange to say. after tlie Gazette went to the trouble of giving these  figures the News republishes its article, of last July in what it claimed to be  its'"annual review" for 1912 and will not even take the trouble to recast the  offending slug which robbed the camp of its proper output but repeals the  figures of output at "between $2,500,000 anil $2,700,000."  In th������ figures given above we showed by estimating the returns for 1912 at  the same as 1911 the output to the end of June 1912 would he $4.157,310.74.  But the output for 1912 exceeded that for 1911 very coni-idci-ably for it was  70,230 tons against 57,815 for 1911 ; and as pointed out in our own annual  review for 1912, published in our- issue of January 2nd, 1913, the average vane  for 1912 was $11.32 per ton. This would make the output for 1912 alone  $794,705.48, which added to $3,810,709.62 which was the output up to the end  of 1911 makes a grand total to the end of 1912 of $4,605,415.10.  We trust the Nelson News will try now to memorize and digest these  figures and in the future resolve to sin no more.  MENDING THEIR WAYS  Some.Star.tjing- Statistics and jihe^Lgss'on  to be.

All Canada, hopes for  reciprocity. speedy recovery.  Self-examination-., is often a very  good thing.. It is.only two year's ago  that the Grand Master of the Masonic  Grand Lodge of the State of Georgia  told a meeting of all Masonic bodies  some striking truths drawn from a  study of the statistics of the.country.  Arrrong the things he told them was  that the cost of maintaining the courts,  jails and police in the United States  annnally amounted to $1,373,000,000.  and notwithstanding this the railroads,  banks and jewellers had to maintain  their own private detective forces to  protect their property.  This an rural expenditure was orre  and a half times greater than the  entire national debt. The total wool  crop was 29S millions ; the total coal  mined equalled 350 millions ; and the  total wheat crop 735 millions ; but the  cost of crime annually was equal to all  three combined.  The murders equalled thirty a day���������  more   than   one   an  hour-;    and  the  homicides in the United Statesanniial-  ly was greater than irr  England Scotland,     Ireland,     Holland,     Belgium,  Germany,   Austria, Hungary,     Italy,  France   and   Spain,   notwithstanding  their population is three times that of  the United States.    More people wcze  murdered in the United States in tlnee  years   than   were   lives    lost i in   the  British Army irr the Boer war.    In the  entire United States less than two per  cent, of the murderers were  punished  and the otherOS per cent, go absolutely  free.    It is more dangerous  to steal a  loaf, rob a hen  roost or shoot your  neighbor's dog than  to  kill  a human  being'    Technicalities of the law, perjury in the witness stand and maudlin  sentiment, defeat the  ends  of justice  and crime is steadily increasing.  "To know these conditions " he said  " without an earnest appeal to public  sentiment to change them would seerrr  like contributory negligence."  At the close of his address a resolution was passed appealing to all  Masons in the United States to do  their duty as good citizens, without  fear or' favor and to use their influence  with the other citizens of their communities to do the same-to the end  that crime -may no longer go  unpunished.  That was two years ago and that  their' resolution was not mere idle  words we have since then seen the  conviction of the Macnamaras ; Police  Lieutenant-Becker of New  York  has  been condemned to death and likewise  the   tin ee   assassins .-..who.,   did ' their  'glari!!!**!!** Yvork-H'-'^  conspirators associated with the -Mac-'-  naiiia i-as in 'their! but rages have also  been convicted.

That there is  opposition to be overcome there is not  a shadow of doubt. The express companies and the railways are not  friendly to the innovation, and beie  and there through the eastern provinces there is local opposition on the  ground that it will transfer the trade  from local dealers to city dealers.  As for the railways and express ci m-  panies the former, at all events,  understand that they themselves have  in many cases created the demand foi*  it by placing their stations too faraway from the centres of trade, with  the result that the public are made to  pay for local delivery alorre on small  parcels a sum equal to twice the  entire amount required by parcel post,  and have to pay the express company's demands into the bargain.

GENERAL NEWS  The Miners' Convention of British  Columbia have decided to ask the  Legislature for1 some changes in the  laws relating to mining in this province.

Manitoba legislature is irr session  with Premier Itoblin at his post.

A. Osborne of Princeton was  in town on Friday last returning up  the river on Saturday's train. He  reports all the machinery for the  cement works not yet in place and  says that the general "'manager, J. W.  Budd, does not expect to get running  .-before April.  Constable Sproirle returned  orr  Friday from   Kamloops   where   he   had  gone   with   a   prisoner.

As a rule,  however-, they have been on time and  .making the connections successfully.  Johnny Baptiste (Indian) shot a  good big panther down at his place on  the Aslinola last week and secured the  '$15 bounty for same and has a good  skin to dispose olf into the bar-gain,  which will net him a few dollars more.  The skin itself was no snrall weight  and made quite a load in the gunny  sack in which he brought it into town,  arrd it gave some idea of thesize of the  brute from which it was taken.

'  Much interest is at present being  taken in the deliberations before the  Conciliation Board now adjusting  wage scales between operators arid  miners., W. H. Bullock-Webster is  the chairman arrd the operators and  representatives of the Miners' Union  are there presenting evidence in favor  of their contentions.  While nearly all the companies  operating copper properties halve  raised their wage scale's on the sliding  arrangement made some years ago,  based on the market price of copper-,  very few of tire gold properties or  silver lead properties have yet done so  and it is claimed that many of them  will be forced to shut down if an attempt is made to corrrpel them to  conform to the copper- schedule. S.  S. Fowler, speaking on behalf of the  company operating the Bluebell mine  said that the low grade of .the ore in  the mine would compel a shut down if  the higher schedule had to be paid, as  the shareholders had nut yet received  a dividend and it was difficult to make  running expenses on the present scale  of wages they were payirri*-.  The miners' contention is that the  higher cost of living alters the situation from thi'it existing when the  copper sliding scale was fixed and  hence their agitation to have the scale  increased and the increased rate made  permanent instead of having a copper  fluctuation land them back to a wage  scale that would be insufficient to  meet the present cost of living.  Many good positions are open to  young men and women in the field of  "Wireless" and of comrrierci.il telegraph service. ,The passage of the  new federal law, effective Oct 1, compelling all 'sea-going vessels to be  equipped with wireless instruments  and manned by two competent operators,'has created a wide demand for operator's in the rnaiine wireless service.
