Mr. J. J. Marks led to the  altar Miss Blanche Brown. Mr. Marks  has been associated with Camp Hedley  from its day of small things, and the  feeling of warm regard and good will  for him and his bride was shown in  the general desire of his friends to  felicitate with him on this joyous  occasion. Many invitations had been  extended to friends, who all gladly  responded, while others who coveted  the dainty missive and had been unintentionally overlooked were disappointed correspondingly. The marriage took place " in the Methodist  church at 8 o clock p. in., when Rev.  Louis Thomas, pastor of the church,  performed the marriage ceremony.  The building was packed to the door.  , The bridal party entered the .church  to the strains of the wedding "march,  played by Mrs. .1. R. C. Cootes.  The bride looked handsome, in an  elegant gown of silk crepe,de chone  trimmed with point lace and ribbon,  and having veil and orange blossoms.  The bridesmaid, Miss Dolly Johns,  was dressed in white China, silk with  chiffon trimming. The groomsman  was Mr. Roy Brown, brother of the  bride.  The marriage ceremony completed,  tho groom was stormed with congratulations and the bride with good  wishes, and  their  progress from  the  that did credit to the cuisine of the  Hotel Siniilkaineen, the chairman proposed the health of the bride  which  was drunk with three times three and  the bridegroom responded; being greeted   with   hearty   applause;. r At   the  festive board' good will, was the predominant note, foi" the sturdy optimism  "which has characterized "Mr.  Marks'residenc-e in this Camp and the  share of the hardships of trail-blazing  which  he bore,  has commanded the  admiratian, especially . of those  who j  know best how much w.-is involved in  this and how courageously he stuck to i  his task.

At 10 o'clock the wedding supper  was given in the dining room of the  Hotel Similkameen, to which something over, fifty guests sat down. At  the request of the bridegroom A.  Megraw presided as chairman, bidding  the guests welcome on behalf of the  bridegroom, and calling on Rev. L.  Thomas, the officiating clergyman, to  say grace. At the conclusion of the  supper, which was an excellent spread  The Gazette, in common with citizens generally, regrets the departure  this week of Mr. and Mrs. W. P.

Wes knows the Nickel Plate from the  grass roots.' having tramped up the  trail through "Camp Rest'' along with  the first pack load of grub and supplies  to begin the work of development of  this now famous property.   Since then  he has stayed with it through  good  and ill report.-   Well equipped in the  technique of economic geology, a close  observer and with  untiring industry,  he rendered good service  in  bringing  the Nickel Plate mine to its present  point,  and   now  th������at his  connection  with the property has ceased, to him  may   well   be   applied   the   old-time  tribute " let him boast who takes his  armor oft'." As a citizen he was always  popular, for his kindly, nature", bouyant  disposition and clean record commanded respect and confidence. While occupying a position subordinate to that of  his brother, M. K. Rodgers, the loyal  support which he always ctccorded the  latter   was   most  praiseworthy.      In  Mrs. Rogers' departure the town sustains a positive loss, for although only  resident-among us'.,for'a-few months,  her delightful   personality   combined  with the rare talent and culture which  she possessed, made her an acquisition  of which the town was justly proud.  That they may at some' time in  the  near future again take up their abode  in Hedley is the sincere wish of their  many friends,, and  those who  know  them best will agree that the Gazette's  warm  appreciation  of Mr.  and Mrs.  Rodgers is devoid of even the  semblance of flattery.

Must Show That There  Is Room For Two.  The Minister of Railways has decided that in the matter of two roads in  the Coquihalla, the V. V. <fc E. be confirmed in their right to build, to the  extent that the onus of showing that  there is room for two railways in that  valley must lie with McLean Bros.  Unless they can arrange with some  othei wealthy concern to undertake  the expense of making a thorough  survey of the route to establish this  point, things will look rather blue for  the project of another railway down  the Coquihalla at present.

The ending of the debate came as a  surprise. For the first time on record  probably, since he became a factor in  British Columbia'politics, John Oliver  refrained from speaking. A cause for  the member for Delta foregoing an  excellent opportunity to express his  views on public questions is being  sought. It is well known that Mr.  Oliver, from the opening of the House,  ���������was preparing to make one of the  greatest efforts of his life to create a  sensation. He had selected the Kaien  Island land grant, made by the Government to the G. T. P. as a townsite  at the Pacific terminus of the railway,  as the basis , of his I'M)6 exposure of  "base corruption. ' But* the speech  was not'delivered and the reasons why  have not been revealed, it could not  be for want of material, as the Government had given him everything he  asked in the. way of information.  Seldom has the member for Delta  had such splendid groundwdrk afforded for his flights of imagination relative to land scandals, and yet he allowed the golden opportunity to pass.  It is quite evident that either Mr.  Oliver became convinced that there  was absolutely no ground for all the  alarms he had been "sounding before  he knew the true character of the  grant or else his leader ."asserted himself .and 'cautioned the hitherto irrepressible 'member.-for Delta. It is  generally surmised about the corridors'  that Mr. Macdonald likely put down  his foot on having himself and the  party he"-represented made laughing  stocks in the country because of the  hasty and ill-advised acts of the member for Delta.  On Thursday afternoon when W. C.  Wells sat down after repeating an  attack upon the Government which  had been reiterated by successive opposition members for several days, all  eyes turned to Mr. Oliver-who was expected to follow. The Speaker called  " Are you ready for the question ?''  once, twice, and no movement was  noticed on the part of the member for  Delta to rise. When the third warning  note was given by the Speaker and  Mr. Oliver still held his seat, there was  indeed astonishment on the part of the  members supporting the Government.  Then the Government benches broke  into derisive applause, which Mr.  Oliver returned with a defeated smile.  The address in reply to the speech  passed without division.  The Similkameen, hitherto only a  name'in the Legislature and seldom  referred to, has since the advent of  Mr. Shatford been prominently put  before the House. In season and out  of season Mr. Shatford takes occasion  to attract attention to his constituency  and its needs.  The week has been devoted largely  to the consideration of the speech of  His Honor tho Lieutenant-Governor.  The moving of the reply to the speech  the province. He thought that it  would in a short time become nearly  self-supporting.  Mr. M-icgowan made reference to a  trip he had made, during the recess,  into the'interior of the province.   Apparently Mr. Macgowan was especially  taken with the Similkameen.   He told  of the surprises which awaited him in  "that district and felt proud that he  had done something towards assisting .  in the opening up of what was hound  to be one of the wealthiest sections of '  the province.    He had been .glad  to ���������-  meet the member "for Similkameen in  the district, and on the trip had satisfied himself tliat-Mr. Shatford had in  no way exaggerated  the capabilities  of his constituency.    While at  Pen-  ticton,   Mr.  M-icgowan  said,   he  had  been greatly impressed wilii   the  fine  fruit produced in the riding of Similkameen.   He stood under a tree which'  he had been told produced $1.00 worth  of cherries.   The district was capable  of producing a wide  variety  of fruit t  and all of the highest quality.     Peach  trees   were free from many  diseases  which attacked them elsewhere  and  lived longer than in most parts.  AVith reference to railways, he was  glad to infer from the address that the  'time has not quite come for refusal of  assistance to railroads. ' He thought  that in some special cases a land grant  might witli advantage be given. He  did not favor lavish bon using-' of railways, however. ��������� -    __,  In this point he  called attention to  the fact that if there had been a lavish  bonus granted a railway which sought  it last year,  the Similkameen  would  have   remained   closed   for   a   longer.  time yet.    The aid asked for was withheld from the road proposing to enter   <  from the  north.     In  consequence of  this, the much more advantageous line  from the south had been commenced.  On  the subject of " better  terms,"  always dear to Mr. -McGdwan, he advocated making a manly demand upon  the  Domiuidn.    If the rights' of the  province were  not  then  granted,  an  appeal should be taken to the. sovereign  who rules the greatest empire on earth.  The opposition leader, J. A. Macdonald, followed in a very ably presented  address.     He   attacked   the   Government's   policy upon  the well  known  lines.    He attempted to take all credit  for the advances in the lumbering in-.*  was assigned to W. Manson, the Conservative member who since last session has entered the House by the  winning of the bye-election in Alberni.  Mr. Manson is a very practical man  and his speech has been referred to in  a complimentary way by nearly all  who followed him. He referred to the  fact that the Liberals thought they  had Alberni constituency in their  pockets and announced that the voice  of Alberni would be the voice of the  province. Since the election no more  has been heard along this line.  A. H. B. Macgowan of Vancouver  seconded the reply and as usual gave  an original address. Pit* advocated  better protection of the forests of the  province aud also thought that a model I  farm would be of advantage, especially  in the work of improving the. stock of I  dustry to the Dominion Government's  immigration laws in the north west. *  One point specially interesting to  the. Similkameen district was, touched  upon, namely, the railway building-  there. He claimed that the Premier  and others of his Government were  willing to have granted $1,500,000 to a  transcontinental road. A road wa.s  now being constructed without the  cost of a cent to the province. The  efforts of Mr. Macgowan and others.  Mr. Macdonald said, had prevented  the grant being made. In his attack,  upon the Kaien Island grant, the  leader of the opposition seemed to confine himself almost exclusively to the  argument that the grant was ii regular.  The Premier's speech, following that  of the leader of the opposition, was  made very important by his announcement that there would be no railway  legislatiou this session. From both  sides of the house has come commendation for this frank announcement of  the Premier.  In outlining the history of the railway situation, Hon. Mi*. McBride said  that at the first session in which he  met the House there had been many  proposals made for railway construction. This represented projects involving thousands of miles of railway and  millions of dollars for subsidies. His  government had given none and he  did not* know that the public, suffered  by this.  The leader of the opposition, however proposed to make all kinds of  grants of land to railways.  At this the third session of the legislature the Premier said he found 12  or 15 -applications for aid to railways  embracing land and cash.  Premier McBride said he knew of no  intention on the part'of his government last session to give $1,500,000 for  a line of railway to- parallel the V. V.  <S: E. This latter road was' now being  built* Avith all expedition, and from information derived from the member  for  Similkameen there were gond-ron-  C'onoluilcd en Vugc. Four THE HEDLEY GAZETTE.

The man who has a good .mining property can now get capital to look at it, which was not  formerly the case.

As the  result of Mr. McBride's manner  of conducting the  Department  of Mines we  have   to-day  confidence restored among mining  men who have capital invested  and to   invest in this province.  While Mr. Curtis *.\'as in public  life    there   was   political   chaos  which  frightened away capital  f'rom British  Columbia's mines.  Th<' eternal tinkering and  nied-  dle-'ome   bungling  which  char-  actcri/.ed   mining  legislation in  this   province   during  the  five  yenvs from 1807 to 1002 created  such a reeling of unrest and uncertainty   among   mining  men  that it almost paralyzed the industry.   A mining capitalist has  many things to consider before  risking his money   in any particular property, and   to figure  with the proper factor of safety  it  is  absolutely necessary that  he   should   have   some  definite  data to go upon.    With mining  law changing every session,   as  it was prior to 1002, they never  knew what they were going to  be  up against as the result  of  some   piece   of  fool  legislation  which   might  be  sprung   upon  them, and Premier McBride as  Minister of Mines did the very  best thing for the mining industry that he could possibly do by  refusing  to  allow tlie Mineral  Act to be touched at all.

During three of the coldest days of  last week Twenty-Mile surprised itself  by getting a hike on and shoving clown  lots of water. Twenty-Mile is somewhat of an enigma in the winter season and is very subject to fits and  starts. Meanwhile the winter is going  and only a few more weeks, at best,  .remain until there should be water in  abundance.  Last week the Nickel Plate barbershop changed hands, proprietor A. F  McDonald, leasing the premises and  business to. Roy Jamieson who has  been with him for several months.  Mac's health has not been of the best  thus far this winter, and his old  habit of roving taking a strong hold  of him, he concluded to re-pack his  turkey. In Mr. Jamieson he leaves  in charge a good workman who' will  be able to hold the business, and continue to give Hedley as it has always  had since the shop was opened up in  the present premises���������an up-to-date  barber shop.

On the slender data that the  contract was let by Mr. S. L. Smith  who is secretary of the School Board,  a report'was started that the building  was the new school house which the  Government were putting up. Now  the Government lots are a block further north, and as the Education Department are not. in the habit of building on other people's property, it may  be seen that the rumor was altogether  premature. When the building is  completed it will in all probability be a  dwelling-house.  The Gazette, had a pleasant call this  week from Messrs A.   TV".

'  He defended the Kaien Island grant,  the justice of which lit! said would be  'proved when the terminals of the  Grand Trunk Pacific were? placedthcie.  On the second day of the debate,  some of the best speakers.in the opposition side took part. (.''. J. Munro of  Ohilliwack, J; R. Brown, of Greenwood and W. G. Cameron, of Victoria  contributed to the" debate.  On the Government side, L. \Y. j  Shatford of Similkameen acquitted  himself 'well. Mr. Shatford congratulated the province upon another surplus this year. At the time of the  election of the Government ithad been  promised that the expenditure of the  province, would lie. within the revenue.  The Government had faithfully carried  this out. If fair play were only got  from the Dominion the finances of the  province would be put in' first class  shape. He was pleased he .said to see  tlie lumper industry in such a* flourishing-condition.' The forestry convention at Ottawa would he hoped have  a beneficial ifi'ectupoii the provincial |  lumbering trade. i  The fruit growing industry, said the j  member for Similkameennvas  one  in |  which he   was   especially    interested. )  He represented a. constituency which  with the Okanagan made the greatest  producer of fruit in   the   province.    It  was a district which had  peculiar advantages in this line, and  a   wide  variety of fruits could be produced.    He  himself was  interested   in   what   was  perhaps one of the   largest  tracts  devoted to fruit growing not onlv in this !'���������  province but in the Dominion of Can-j  adn.    At Penticton    this   year -there;  would be *<*u,6')() trees planted out.   'At I  siiriounding- points in Southern  Okanagan and Siinilkameen valleys there  were likewise a large   number   being  set Out*.    At present it was difficult to  meet   the   demand   for 'fruit-   in   his  district.  With respect to tlie,'markets ' the  fruitgrowers in his section had nothing to trouble about/^^^ many years  to come the market in the prairie sections would consume all that could be  produced here. Under these circumstances the. outlook for fruit in his district was very bright.  From Manitoba and the Northwest  settlers were coming iii to avoid the  severe winters of the prairies and were  readily acquiring fruit lands. These  men made the very best of, settlers.  They had in many instances made considerable money, and were able therefore lo equip their holdings in proper  shape.  With railway communication and  the division of large holdings into  smaller lots, the outlook in his district  iPfffittiif  Is  A  Good,  And  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

SHATFORD,  Secretary and Hanager,  Ltd.  HEDLEY, B.C.  was exceedingly bright. He thanked  his friend Mr. MacGowan for the many  good things that he had said about the  .Similkameen district, and he was sure  that his remarks would be of the greatest benefit to that district.  Mr. Shatford said with reference to  appropriations for oublic  works, that  he had, when the necessity existed for  it, contented himself with small appropriations.    When the revenue was too  small to perinit'of adequate  votes for  the roads he had not been  unreasonable enough to expect a  large expenditure' in   his  constituency.      He Avas  glad things were now getting  in   better shape in consequence of the   business-like policy  of   tho  Government.  He therefore expected to see. large appropriations for roads  in his constituency this year.     He felt satisfied that  the Government would deal justly in  the matter.     He'intended   to   press  strongly for a  road  from   Hedley  to  the Nickel Plate Mountain.    This road  was  a  necessity.      The  Nickel  Plate  mine was among the best in   the province and a, road should  be provided.  Incidentally he gave   great credit to  the Premier for the  deep   interest  he  had  taken  in   the    mining    industry  which was shown   by   his  action  last  summer in taking his life in his hands  in order to go up to the mine with the  Chief   Commissioner   of   Lands   and  Works.     He also   referred   at   some  length to the  mineral possibilities of  his district.  Before closing Mr. Shatford referred  to the question of railways. As the  member for the Similkameen has been  given the credit of having in company  with his friend Mr.A.H.B MacGowan  played an important part in preventing a* bonus being granted to any other  eoiopany which would in any way interfere with the G. N. connection being- given. His remarks on this subject were followed with the greatest  interest by both sides. His speech on  the railway question was one of the.  he. vebukcH administered to the op-  ])Oi 1 Ion which has been heard. He  pointed out that  the Opposition   last  session had announced the policy  which the Government was supposed  to be contemplating in railway matters. When it was discovered, however, that n<> railway policy was to'he  introduced, the Opposition suddenly  changed and for the last few days of  the session they introduced resolution  after resolution condemning the Government for not introducing railway  legislation.  Mr. Shatford admitted that he had  been    .somewhat   troubled   last year  himself on    the subject of railways.  The subject was one of vital  interest  to his constituency.   Without railway  connection the Similkameen must re-,  main   in   the   background.      Towards  the end of the session, however, he became well satisfied that the  Similkameen was going to get* railway connection.   He had been in  communication with G. N.  officials.    From them  he  learned   that what   is   commonly  called   railway    legislation   was   not  needed.     All   that was wanted   was  that no railway legislation  should  be  introduced and the G. N. would  build"  into the district.      He   was pleased  therefore that   no railway legislation  had  been   introduced.     The Similkameen was now   getting   its   railway,  which would   not have occurred  had  events taken a different turn.  With reference to the School Act, he  said he found the citizens falling in  line with it very well in spite of the  cry raised by the opposition. As a  heavy rate-payer he had not himself  altogether liked the new assessment  act when it was introduced. The  measure, however, was necessary like  the school act, and he was ready to  bear his part.  In concluding, he said that when the  eotimates were brought down he hoped  to see liberal appropriations for public work in the province generally and  the Similkameen in particular.
