Oldest established nursery on the mainland of B. C.  M. J.  HENRY,  3010 Westminster Rood,      Vancouver.  The Presbyterians of Hedley  had .a,  visit this week from Rev.  G. A. Wilson,  Superintendent   of   Missions'.in  British Columbia."  Mr. Wilson is making a tour of the various mission fields  B. G.   ������f the province and this is his first trip  into the Similkameen since his appointment to that position last year. - His  first intention was to spend three Sundays' in this valley, preaching in Keremeos, Hedley and. Princeton on successive Sundays, but being pressed fortune he doubled up on the services,  taking Faieview and Keremeos on the  19th and Hedley and Princeton on the  23th.     Accordingly   he   and Rev. J.  Thurburn Conn went to Princeton on  Saturday where they-held a meeting  of the  managers that night, and on  Sunday moruirig Mr. Wilson address-  ed-the congregation on mission work.  In the afternoon they drove back to  Hedley and held service here Sunday  evening.   An account of the progress  and increase of the work of the church  in this province was given for a period  extending over the past fifteen years,  that being the length of time that had  elapsed since the synod of British Columbia  was   formed.     The  missions  of the Presbyterian Church in Canada  extended from the Atlantic seaboard  iif a chain across the continent   to the  Pacific and up north  to the Yukon.  In British Columbia the self-supporting congregations hud increased over  600% in  the 15 years, and  the home  mission field had grown from 26 to 54.  He wsis very liuich pleased with the  progress that had been  made in  this  field under  Rev. Mr. Conn   and   expressed   his belief that Hedley   aud  Princeton should be taken off the list  of mission fields  arid   placed   on  the  augmentation or self supporting list.  This thought had occurred to him on  reaching Hedley on   Friday last and  learning of the amount that was being  contributed   for   church   work.     At  Princeton  he  had recommended a similar   course   and  the   congregation  there had passed a resolution  agreeing to be placed on the augmentaton  list,  provided that  Hedley would do  likewise.    When the Hedley congre-  gotion were asked to decide, upon  the  matter at the close of the meeting on  Sunday night they were reluctant   to  take so important a  step   and asked  more time   to   consider   the   matter.  Accordingly at the next fortnightly  service   the   decision* will filially  be  made.  A very interesting feature of Mr.  Wilson's address on the mission work  of the church was his reference to the  work among the foreigners who had  come into the new provinces of the  Canadian Northwest. The Galicians  who were of the Greek church were  becoming enamored of the church polity and doctrine of the Canadian  Presbyterian' Church, and had approached them asking light and leading with a view to adoption of it. By  way of assisting them the church doctrine and polity was fully explained to  them and some of their bright young  men had been taken into Manitoba  College where they Were prepared for  church work; and as a result they hail  formed a new reformed church of their  own, retaining ho a. certain degiee  many of their old church forms of  worship. If some of the earlier day  upholders of the doctrines and church  practice of John Knox were to re-ap  pear on  of John Knox were to re  the scene in  the Northwest  among the Galicians and see modern  day Presbyterian ism of the reformed  Greek church brand being carried out  they would say, "Mon, mon, sic' awfu'  daft,daein's."  '. The mover* and seconder of the address, weie Taylor, of Revelstoke, and  Schbfield, of Ymir, who are credited  with discharging that' duty with exceptional ability.  The'.adoption of-the address was  given a new interest in the amendment  introduced by the leader of the opposition censuring the government whom  the amendment held responsible for  the action of the Lieutenant-governor  in with-holding consent to the Bowser  bill or Natal act. ,v>  In speaking to his amendment,  the  opposition leader added somewhat to  his forensic laurels- in  a speech   too  academic to be practical and too much  based ou abstruse theories to stand the  assaults that followed from the pi emier  and attorney-general who demolished  the structure.'  The principal point in  leader  Macdonald's   speech   was   the  statement made by him  that  '-Ministers were responsible for the acts of a  lieutenant-governor in all cases save  one,  which  was when assent was reserved to a bill under direct instructions from the governor-general-  And  if in all other instances the advice of  the ministers was not taken  it, was  clearly their duty to resign, and compel  the ..lieutenant-governor either to  find counsellors who would accept responsibility for his action or otherwise  retire from office."   Some of his quotations from Todd on  constitutional  practice were meant by him to support  him in  this statement and it was unkind of the. premier, in following him,  to quote from a work by Justice Clem-,  ent, who had always been a prominent  active Liberal,  laying down a rule of  procedure the very-' opposite of what  Macdonald was contending for.  Premier McBride's reply was one of  the ablest efforts  ever  delivered' by  him in the house.   He  impugned the  sincerity of the-'leader of the opposition,  and in  this connection twitted  him with failing to give to the public  on the earliest possible occasion these  views to which he attached so much  importance now.   The earlier opportunity that had presented itself was  the by-election in Vancouver in  August. The statement of what had taken  place in the office of the secretary of  state at Ottawa was given in full,  and  all it amounted to was that in answer  to a question about the anti-Asiatic  legislation  from Mr. Scott, he had in  the privacy of that official's office informed him  that  on  the clay he left  Victoria,   Lieutenant-governor Dunsniuir had informed him  that he  was  with-holding bus assent to the bill, and  as the privacy of Mr. Scott's office had  not been respected  but the opposition  had added distortion and misrepresentation,1 he was violating no confidence  now in telling exactly what had been  said and done on that occasion.    His  government had given no advice nor  instruction to the Lieutenant-governor  concerning the bill,  and the entire responsibility lay at Ottawa whence instructions had been given the Lieutenant-governor which justified that official in doing as he had done.   To show  the Ottawa attitude  he quoted from  Minister Tern pieman's speech in Victoria in September in which he said :  "The Japanese are the allies of Great  Britain through a treaty to which we  are a party; that it Avas utterly useless  except as an appeal to demagogues, to  continue such legislation ; that it was  the duty of the parliament of Canada  to deal with this matter, and that such  legislation would certainly be disallowed by the Imperial government."  To show that this attempt on  Ottawa's part to hide behind the  Imperial  government  was insincere he quoted  Continued on Page Four.      \  Befoie reproducing the report of  Charles Camsell, of the Canadian -Ge-  'ological Survey, upon Camp Hedley,  the Gazette wishes to give-its readers  a short sketch of Mr. Camsell and the-  work in which he had been .engaged  befoie coming to the Similkameen to  examine and report on the geology in  this section of tho province.        "  Before he began his work here it was  known that Mr. A. P. Low, the director of the Survey, entertained a very  high opinion of him and his capabilities, and the amount ������f difficult work  that he has done certainly justified the  confidence placed in 'him by his chief,  although Mr. Camsell is yet quite a  young man���������possibly not more than  30, if he is that old.  The sketch must of necessity lie brief,  for to the interviewer he is  as scary  as an ibex,'and the display  of pencil  and note-book   would   have  been   as  fatal to a prolongation of an interview  with him as a blunder-bus would be to  the ibex, for he is modest and' retiring  in his disposition, and has no hankering to be in ' the  public* eye.   The. intense interest in aud love of his work  is the one thing  that will draw him  out and make him a delightful raconteur at an  evening camp fire.   If in  this sketch there are some inaccuracies  in minor details it will be clue to faulty  memory of the interviewer  who was  compelled   to make the' notes afterwards and debarred from  the interviewer's privilege of making   use of  probing questions in order to rightly  understand and thus ensure accuracy.  Mr.  Camsell may be said  to have  been born an explorer for he first saAy  the light of "day in a Hudson Bay post  in  the far north country where the  waters flow *n the Arctic ocean.   His  father was an   English   officer,   who  with a spirit of adventure resigned the  known service of the army when on a  military expedition  to   the  west,    to  take unknown service with the Hudson  Bay Company, and was sent by them  from  Fort Garry to one of their most  northerly posts, as Lord Strathcona in  his time had begun the company's service at a remote  post in  Labrador.  Speaking of the Coppermine river, the  Gazette asked Mr. Camsell how the  name had been given and whether extensive copper deposits  were known  there when he replied that the Indians  knew of it,  and his earliest recollections  were   of   copper-tipped   arrows  that he. had used as a kiddie, these being procured  for him   by his father  from the Indians.   When he left home  in charge of a guide  to attend school  at Winnipeg, it took two. months to  make the trip.  One memorable expedition in connection with the geological survey,  which he made, a long story in itself,  was when in company with Dr. Bell,  now in New Zealand, they explored  the McKenzie river to the Arctic ocean.  Dr. Bell had started in from Edmonton  and had picked him up at Great Slave  lake. When they reached the Eskimo  country their Indian guide took a  sneak, for there was always war between the Indians and Eskimo. To  make matters worse the beggar took  the grub as well. No one had been in  there for fifty years���������not since Franklin relief expeditions, many traces of  which they saw. They h������d nothing to  eat but what they could kill -is they  went, and a.s for hardships t^iey were  decidedly up against it. The incidents  clay by clay until they got back was an  experience which was a rare treat to  hear from the lips of a participant.1  - In 1899 Mr. Camsell and his brother-  had been sent out to pick up cripples  stranded on the Klondike rush from  Edmonton, and the experience in finding them in their enfeebled 'condition  from scurvy, starvation and other  misfortunes and shipping them out  was a gruesome one. In 1900 he was  with the Geological Survey, and in  1901. he was exploring for the Clergue  syndicate on James Bay and the Abit-  tibi, in search of iron ranges. In 1902  he was again with the Geological Survey between Edmonton and Fort  Smith, examining salt and gypsum  deposits, and investigating the wood  buffalo,  of  which  he saw  two small  bands. ' He saw lots'of salt back from  Fort Smith which has been supplying  the natives of the McKenzie river for  100 years or more. In ,1903 he was out  for the Canadian Northern reporting  on iron claims ,in the Atikokan and  gypsum deposits on Manitoba and  Winnipeg lakes. The deposits are now  being extensively worked in the manufacture of wood fibre. In 1901 he received his permanent appointment on  the Geological Survey, aud thai year  was exploring the Severn river running into Hudson's Bay in the Lauren-  tiari and Huronian areas. The winters  he spent in the colleges���������the writer is  not sure which but is of the impression  that he was in Queen's, MeGill and '  Manitoba, all three. ��������� In 1905 he went  to Skagway and Dawson and across to  the mouth of the McKenzie and back  again when he explored and surveyed  the Peel river and filled in much geo:  graphy hitherto unmarked on the  maps of that region.  His work subsequent to -that we all  know. On each joint or part of the  foregoing brief skeleton outline a romance of fact could be woven as entertaining as any fiction.  With men of his skill, endurance,  self-reliance and scholarly attainments  tin the geological survey or exploratory expeditions the' government gets  in service full measure and running  over,-and to such the country owes a  debt of gratitude.  KEREMEOS NOTES.  The public school is adding scholars  to the roll and the average attendance  is good.  Mr. Anderson, of Hedley, put Innis'  big weigh scales in place and now the  work is ready for inspection.  There are good openings here for-  a lawyer, a jeweler and watch repairer  and a correspondent.  Mr-. Crompton, of Manitou, Man., intends to build a' small house on his  fruit lot south of the Similkameen.  John Coulter, of lower Similkameen,  having invested in fruit lot 5, will at  once put the material on it for a house.  Another barber shop and bath room  is nearing completion. It is for Mr.  Saunders and is on lot 21. Seventh  avenue.  Last  week  L. A. Clark,  of   Green  Mountain,   was��������� in  consultation' with-.  Messrs. McDonald & Lawrence.    Possibly there is another big ditch on the  docket for this district.  J. C. Wood row arrived here on Saturday. He will give a contract for the  building of a small house and a stable  on his fruit ranch, lot 15. His residence will be erected later.  Mr. Brown, of Manitou. Man., a representative of the press, has invested  in a lot near the V. V. & E. station.  He went east, but will return in the  course of a month.  Eighth avenue from Mr. Kirby's hotel west will soon be clear of brush and  graded. All the ground between that  avenue and the;. V. V. <fc E. station  should be. in good shape.  Rev. Mr. Cameron will hold the. first  mission service in Keremeos town hall  on Sunday, Feb. 2nd, at 11 a. in. The  evening service on that day will be  held at 7:30 p.m. in the school house.  Misses Daly and Corrigan went by  V. V. & E. to Oroville on Saturday.  They will spend a lew days with  friends in Spokane before enrolling as  students of Holy Names Academy.  Heavy machinery for the Golden  Zone mine was loaded on Innis' freight  wagons here on Thursday. Wheels  must give place to runners at the  junction of the roads a few miles north  of Olalla.  A meeting of the Fruit Growers'  Exchange was held in the Keremeos  town hall on Jan. 21st, when the auditors' report and other matters of interest to the members were discussed and  satisfactory settlements made.  Mr. Lawrence, of Beautiful Valley  Land Co., went north by Welby's stage  on Friday, and his partner, Mr. C. A.  McDonald, went by special to Oroville;  later on the same day. They will go  to Winnipeg before their return to  Keremeos.

Bride's word in stfoll' a   grave  matter is   final."   It   certainly  - must be final, for if he dared to  misrepresent the Lieut.-gover-  nor in such a matter it  would'  become the duty of that official  to ask for  his resignation and  the fact that he is still Premier  of the province is proof positive  that in making  that plain .unequivocal statement he did  not  misrepresent  the  Lieut-governor.    The Colonist in discussing  the question says :  "The Lieut.-governor, it seems  to us. must have acted in one of  three ways, hoav that' the fact  that he did not act upon the advice of the  ]")rovincial   Premier  Dr. Maguire, one1 of Vancouver's bunchrdf five in the  B. C:  legislature, last week gave' out  a new noteoii the -better terms'  question. . In the debate, onthe  address a wide, field  is .allowed  tlie members,1 and   the doctor  improved  the   opportunity '���������  to  .throw.- out' an apt suggestion on  the question  of! na-yal defence  and of the   subject   of   'better  term'.    He sh owed that he i-er  cognized the principle of 'Canada's moral obligation  to contribute to the maintenance of tlie  navy by suggesting that as the  Dominion govern merit is nei tiler fair   enough -nor   generous  enough to.either p'ay; the twentymillion dollars that they owe  British Columbia., or to contribute to the maintenance of the  British navy   which   tonus   so  important a part of ' Canada's  defence, they  be  asked to expend the; $20,000,000 on.:   coast  defence on the Pacific.   It looks  like a reasonable /request,  and  while the concession  oh British  Columbia's part   is   perhaps' a  trifle  more   generous   than   is  warranted, ii'.would be better  than  having: the open sore,   a,  continual menace to  tlie  har-  mons between the two- governments.  late of the Great Northern Ry%  andithere isi tHef written testimony of Louis'/'Hill, president  of the'Great Northern, to prove  that certain statements and innuendoes 'which -Ross' rcuide' concerning Farr'el* we're, false.

In the speech from the throne  at the 'opening of the present  session of the legislatux;e"it wiU  be1 observed that the fiscal year  is to be changed. to, terminate  with the end '.-of- April instead  of the end of June. This action  on the part of the government  is a distinct compliment .to tJie  representative, of Similkameen,  Mr. L. W. Shatford who-, made  the suggestion in one of his  speeches in the house last year.  The great benefit to, be derived  from the change is in enabling  advantage to be taken of better  weather for carrying out public  work, particularly that of road  building and repairs through  the rural constituencies.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  Continued from First I'nge.  the" action and view of Hon. Joseph  Chamberlain who accorded to the governments of Natal, New Zealand and  Austral in, the right to enact and enforce precisely the 'same kind of legislation as the British  Columbia, enact  ment which had  been  disallowed by  Ottawa.  Attorney-general   Bowser's   speech  dealt with the constitutional aspect of  the case in which the responsibility for  the Lieutenant-governor's action was  ��������� laid .at Ottawa's door..  McGuire,   Macgowan,     Mc-Phillipsy  ���������Hawthornthwaite, Mclnnis and Mnn-  ro also contributed to the debate. Of  all the speakers on   the Liberal  side  there are none who seem to approach  a question with the same fairness and  honesty which Munro does.  THE  SOCIALIST rMPEACHJrKXT.  The constitutional point involved in  deciding whether Hawthornthwaite's  motion in impeachment of the Lieu-  ten ant-go vein or was in order was also  the occasion for much constitutional  sparring. The resolution itself is as  follows :  Whereas, during the last session of  this House, a bill was introduced intituled An Act to Regulate Immigration into British Columbia, with the  object and intent of preventing a.  further influx into this province of  "backward races," notably certain of  the subjects of his imperial majesty  the Mikado of Japan ;   and  Whereas the said bill, as amended,  successfully passed through the various stages in this legislature, was supported by the members of the executive, council at that time present, and  was enacted, so far as it lay in the  power of the members of this legislature ; and  Whereas, the Hon. James Dunsniuir,  lieutenant-governor of this province,  refused to assent to the passage of  said bill; and  '���������Whereas*, the Hon. Richard McBride,  premier of British Columbia, has publicly stated that the lieutenant governor was not advised by his government to refuse to give his assent to  said bill; and  Whereas, it has transpired during an  investigation by the deputy minister  of labor, MacKenzie King, acting under instructions from the Dominion  government, into the causes and nature of the extraordinary immigration  of Japanese laborers into this province,  that the Hon. James Dunsniuir, in his  private capacity as an operator of coal  mines in this province, had, on or  about the time of the passage of said  bili, entered into a contract with the  Canadian Nippon company of Vancouver to procure 500 Japanese coolies for  exploitation in his coal mines; and  Whereas, the passage of the aforesaid bill would have had the effect of  delaying or preventing the coming into this province of the laborers afore-  s.'iid; and  Whereas, the lieutenant-governor  has not acted in this matter in accordance with constitutional practice in  refusing his assent to the enactment  of said bill without the advice of his  responsible ministers, and has further-  laid himself open to grave suspicion as  to the reasons that induced him to refuse his assent to said bill; and  Whereas, his action in these matters  must inevitably tend to destroy such  confidence as the people of this province have in constitutional and responsible government:  Therefore, be it Resolved, that this  House emphatically condemns all such  unconstitutional proceedings and hereby appeals to the governor-general of  this Dominion to investigate into all  of the aforesaid matters and charges,  and should the facts prove to be as  stated in this resolution, dismiss forthwith the Hon. James Dunsmuir from  the office of lieutenant-governor of the  province of British Columbia.  COMMITTEES APPOINTED.

The Manag-ement of the Penticton Post  Office Under Fire.  When in Penticton a few weeks ago  the. Gazette was surprised to find that  while the boat gets in there between  5 and 6 in the evening, the people  .sometimes do not get their papers until niidafternoon next day, and complaints are heard on all sides concerning it. The patience of the Penticton  Press at length wore out and the management of the post office came in for  sharp criticism a. fortnight ago. Now  we have a letter from a subscriber of  the Gazette, complaining with very  good cause, and having the manliness  to come out plainly over his own name  in doing so. The letter to'the Gazette  reads:  Dear Editor:���������  I have tried to solve  a problem of why all my papers reach  me when they are a week old and my  neighbors get theirs on time.  An old friend of mine asked me who  signed for my registered letters as  some of them direct from the bank in  Penticton was in his mail. I might  make other complaints regarding unregistered mail.
