A. HARCELLO  January. 7th. 1011.  On Monday evening about 6 o'clock  a robbery that was a mixture of daring burglary and petty sneak thieving  was pulled off. The proprietor had  gone to supper between five and six  o clock as usual, but the barber who  occupies part of the premises was detained with a customer and remained  longer. He too left for supper about  5;<I5 p. m. and the place was locked up  but the lights were left full on. Shortly afterwards some parties noticed  the lights (which are gasoline lamps)  going out in the pool room and wondered at it as being something unusual at that time of the evening.  Nothing was known of anything being wrong until Rotherham returned  about six when he was surprised to,  see the lights out (although the lamps  were still hot) nnd thc back door open.  Examination of the back door showed  that the lock had been broken apparently with an axe, and the till open-  and contents extracted. He next examined the till in the barber shop and  found that it also had been yisited and  rifled of its contents. Tlie total amount  taken from both tills is said to have  been about $60.  The thief had thoroughly understood the layout of the premises and  he also knew the manipulation of  those gasoline lamps and cash registers, for the air pressure and gasoline  supply had been tilrned off.  A stranger who struck town on Friday and put up at the Great Northern  was suspected and constable Sproule  searched him but found nothing on  him that would warrant taking him  in custody. Several very suspicious  circumstances neverthe less gave good  grounds for the suspicion and it is by  no means a very sure thing that he  was not the guilty party or one of  them, for there may have been an accomplice.  Hedley nearly came in  for a rather  .serious  blaze on   Thursday  night of  last week.    ,Fire sta rted in C'riteley's  shoeshop, a small building attached.to  the  Commercial hotel.     It is thought  that a spark from   the stove caught in  a gunny sack curtain   near by and it  was   beginning to go in  lively shape  when noticed by F. M.  Gillespie  and  G. MeEacbern  who happened to be iii  the tlrugstore 0]>posite  and were look?  ing  in that direction.     They rushed  over,   kicked in the door when   they  found the gunny sack-blazing and the  woodwork  alongside had  commenced  to burn. The curtain was pulled down  first thing and  the fire stamped out  and the partially burnt   sacking used  to smother out the burning woodwork  There appeared  to be no water on the  premises except a   basinful which was  used to help complete the work begun  with   the sacking.     The Commercial'  hotel   building is  a huge  mass of dry  lumber and would   have made a very  hot fire, and in the   absence of proper  fire-fighting appliances it would have,  been  a foregone conclusion that the  drugstore post-office and  other buildings in   the near  vicinity would have  gone  too.    "Meanwhile  what   has  be  come of the adjourned meeting for fire  protection  which   was  to have  been  held to  acton information   that sundry committees  were  to   obtain   for  them?    It certainly tloes   seem an almost    hopeless   task   to   awaken   the  people  of Hedley to a sense of their  utter helplessness in   the case of any,  seiious visitation from fire.   The Commercial hotel seems to bear ;i charmed  life.    During  the time it was running  it was on fire several   times but the  fire was always noticed  in time to be  put out. On one occasion a driink who  thought he  wasn't  getting  warmed  fast enough  at the  stove    kindled a  fire of wood on the floor alongside.

STOESS  December2llth, 1'Mir ."iO-I'i  The charity hall in aid of the Hedley  hospital given on Friday evening last  was in all respects a pronounced success even although the attendance  was not quite as large as 011 some former occasions. The principal falling  off in, attendance was in the case of  guests from the outside. Both Princeton and Keremeos were represented  but nob in as great numbers as on former occasions.  The dance was held in the hall over  Shatfords store and the room was  tastefully decorated with evergreens  and bunting while the floor was in  very good condition. About 120 guests  all told were present and of these, possibly over forty couples were among  the dancers, and this number was  about all the room could accommodate comfortably without undue  crowding.  Music was supplied by the Coulthard orchestra, of Princeton, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Coulthard and  daughter on cornet, violin and mandolin and Mrs. Lyall accompanying on  the piano. In the last part of the  evening the cornet which was too  loud for the stringed instruments was  cut out and most of the guests approved of the change. On the whole the  guests were well pleased with the  music supplied. Mr. H. D. Barnes  officiated as floor manager. Some  thought that the encoring of dances  was carried to extreme. An encore  occasionally is encouraging and complimentary to the orchestra but when  carried to extreme it becomes an imposition upon tliein.  Supper was served in Fraternity  hall where tables were laid to accommodate 110 guests, and the manner in  which the tables were dressed and the  excellence of the menu supplied was  evidence of the zeal in the cause shown  by the Ladies' Auxiliary who got it  up.  A full statement of the financial end  '���������I' the event is not yet to hand but a  fairly close estimate places the net  proceeds at about $250.  WEST FORK KETTLE RIVER  Mr. L. Reinecke spent the past season on the West Fork of the Kettle  river, B. C. He has been engaged in  topographically ;ln,l geologically surveying this district for the Geological  Survey and reports as follows regarding the mining development.  "MIXING DEVELOPMENTS ALONG KETTLE  RIVEK,  li. (.'.  The small silver-lead workings near  Beaverdell, on the West Fork of the  Kettle'River has shipped nearly $100,-  000 worth of ore at the end of 1910.  The ore was hauled for nearly 50 miles  by wagon to the railway, and onlv  such as averaged $100 per ton or over  could be shipped with profit. The  largest mine was shut down in February of this year, and mining is now  practically at a standstill. A railway  is being constructed from Midway, on  the United States Boundary, through  Beaverdell. Renewed activity is expected in the mines upon its completion.  A promising seam of soft coal has  been recently opened in the Tertiary  shales near Midway.  Placer gold, gold-silver, and copper  prospects were formerly worked along  Kettle river and its tributaries. Rock  creek and "West fork.  WAS IN TRAIN WRECK  ".   Bullock-Webster Survives Wreck of  Scotch Express  (Penticton Herald)  It will probably bo a surprise to  Penticton people to know that Mr. E.  Bullock Webster was in tlie Scotch  express on the Midland railway which  met with such a fearful accident on  Christmas eve near Hawes Junction,  Glasgow.  Letters were received by Mr. Bullock-Webster's intimate friends in  town this week acquainting them of  the above mentioned fact and stating  that although badly shaken up he  was uninjured.  Mr. Bullock-Webster was travelling  to Glasgow where be has sines been  demonstrating the superiority of  British Columbia fruit.  Mr. Webster was also in the ill-fated  hotel lire in Fairview about nine years  ago when the "big tepee" was burned  down and several lives were lost. On  that occasion he had to jump from an  upper -torey window.  To the Editor Hedley Gazette  Dear Sir  I have read your paper since its first  issue and have seldom seen Tulameen  mentioned. The Gazette has a larger  circulation in this section than any  other paper published in the province  and Tulanieen should be considered in  the field of its labors.  Tulameen is situated three miles  west of the uncompleted end of tho  V. V. & E. Railway on the north side  of the Tulameen river and adjoining  Otter lake and is the natural commercial 'centre for all the mineral and coal.;  resources of this promising district.  The Columbia Coal and Coke Co. a  wide awake and progressive concern  are opening up their coal holdings two  miles below Tulanieen and are the  are the heaviest investors in the district; their saw mill situate at Tulameen has been taxed to its utmost  capacity this season furnishing timbers  and lumber for mining and residential  purposes.  Under the able management of the  Columbia, Co. a record in our lumber  manufacturing has been broken and  all our lumber wants have been supplied up-to-date.  Among other companies orga.nized  in this section and about to open mineral properties in the early spring are  the Kelly Creek Mining and Smelting  Co. of Spokane, property on Kelly  Creek and the Tulanieen Platinum Co. '  Vancouver, property on Tulanieen  river.  The Blair Coal interests lying West  of and adjoining the town which bids  fair to be a strong competitor of the  Columbia Co.  The Similkameen Mining Co. aie  preparing to push their enterprise  with renewed vigor.  Report-says a. strong English Co.  are negotiating for the purchase of  the Swede group of mines on head of  Bear Creek.  Wm. Flager's property on Boulder  Creek upon which considerable work  has been done will employ a still larger  force this season.  The irrepressible Connelly and  Speck are determined to place the  Rabbit Mountain properties on a shipping basis during 1011.  The town of Tulanieen grows slowly  but surely. One of the best inland  hotel buildings has just been completed at an estimated cost of twenty  thousand dollars and the .public are  clamoring for its opening. This hotel  will very materially assist in making  Tulanieen a summer resort, directly  the Hill family make it possible to  reach the natural baths at Tulanieen  and it is to be hoped some of them  will live to feel the exhilarating effects  of a motor ride on and a dip in Otter  lake.  Plans have been drawn and arrangements are being made for the construction of a public hall 20x50 and the ambition of its owner is to introduce Jim  Hill to the residents of Tulanieen and  assist, in dissipating his mind of the  necessity of comparing our methods  with those of the .state of Washington.  .1. 11. Jackson left for the coast last  week intending to purchase boats for  Otter lake the future goal for all pleasure seekers in .summer time and hopes  to have sufficient boat accommodation  for the whole Hill family enabling  that illustrous group to see Tulanieen  as he sees it.  In the matter of wagon roads,  bridges, etc.. our wants are many and.  if told would number many a score  but we are content to leave this with  our representative Mr. L.W. Shatford  who has been equal to the occasion  with the prospector and wo cannot,  but expect he will assist the incoming  mining Companies to that consideration the conditions demand.  "Yours Chloride.  THE MIDWAY COAL  A Spokane Company Will Equip on Extensive Scp.le.  Times  Late reports from the 31 id way coal  properties stale that a very influential  syndicate has been formed at Spokane  to outfit the mine with the most approved machinery to the value of  $25,000 to $80,000 and the working-  gang increased to twenty men or over.

His criticisms of  the government policy were rather  unfortunate for his friends at Ottawa  and Premier McBride was not slow to  take advantage of it in his reply. To  Sir Wilfrid it must have been trying  to have his own acts and those ol his  Government and followers so specifically condemned by leader Brewster  as they were. Henceforth it would lie  well for Sir Wilfrid to institute a censorship upon the public utterances of  the member for Alberni or disavow  his leadership status. The desertion  of the member for i''squiinalt and the  assumption of the role of parliamentary opposition on the part of the two  .socialists who are now the only organization in a position to assume that  role, would indicate thai Mr. Brewster was indiscreet, to say the least,  in allowing his speech on the address  to take the form and tone which it  did.

The News is a good paper which  effectively covers the inland field, and  it is a. pity it finds it either necessary  or advisable to engage-in these-voting  contest methods of raising the wind.  A clue to the Zimmerman murder  of four years ago at Penticton is believed to have been discovered in the  finding of some jewallery at Sidley.  The jewellery was in possession of a  woman and it is claimed that it was  part of what disappeared from the old  man's.shop when the murder and robbery was committed.  Mrs. F. M. Gillespie, wife of our  postmaster, left on Monday's train for  California where she will spend the  next three months. An attack of  congestion  recent  in rather weak condition and caused  some anxiety to her husband and  friends. Her father, Mr. W. A. McLean accompanied her on the journey  south. ,  It has been noticed that there is  generally less drunkenness attending  u plain dress ball than a masquerade.  The improvement in this respect was  particularly noticeable in the case of  the hospital ball on Friday evening  where there was no evidence whatever  of the existence of booze anywhere,  but next day a few isolated drunks  were seen around the streets.  Word was received in Hedley on  Monday evening of the sudden death  of Harry Jones, proprietor of the Golden Gate hotel at Fairview, B. C.  which occurred Monday morning after  an illness of two days. There are no  particulars as to the nature of the ailment. Deceased was a popular hotel  man who for many years gave Fair-  View a. well-kept hotel. There will be  wide spread regret at his sudden death  and the Gazette extends sympathy to  the bereaved widow and family.  Rev. A. H. Cameron began on Sunday evening a series of sermons on  church union and preached on that  occasion the ojiening discourse of the  series. That he believes in church  union at the present time as being in  the best interests of the cause of  Christianity is evident from the tenor  of the opening sermon in which lie  pointed out that in the earliest years  of the Christian church there was no  dogmatic system of theology, and furthermore that the system of church,  government may be expected to  cliange with the advancing years to  keep in line with the governmental  systems of tho nations themselves.  The    Canadian ...Almanac; for  1011  which is in its 01th year of publication  maintains its  usual standard of excellence and continues to increase in size j  and general  usefulness, or rather we :  might say  indespeusability, for it has ;  become  such a compendium  of useful i  knowledge that no office man can well j  afford to be without it.    It is published ���������  by  the  Copp Clark Co.,  of  Toronto  and    this   year   contains "50!   pages,  every one of   which will  doubtless lie  consulted    various  times   during  the  year by busy  men in search  of information they may require.  Among the  new features  this   year  is data, concerning  the Canad ian  Navy and the  new law of  copyright.    It  would undoubtedly  be a. hardship  to have to  put in the year without the assistance  of the Canadian Almanac.

Monaghan,  daughter  of James Monaghan well known  to  old-timers, in Camp   McKinney,   has  been asked to christen the new United  States torpedo destroyer,  Managhan,  which  has been  named in  honor of  John   Robert   Monaghan,  who   was  killed   in Samoa   in   the    spring, of  1899 in an action against the natives  when lie was one of the officers commanding a party operating in conjunction with a party from  the British  Navy to preserve order in   the island.  The offer of the Secretary of the Navy  has been accepted and Miss Monaghan  will perforin the ceremony.     The loss  of his only son was a heavy blow to  Mr. Monaghan at that time. The deed  commemorated  was one of   striking  heroism as the  young man  gave his  life in  the hope of saving a wounded  comrade,  Lieut.   Lansdale,  U.  S.  N.  and it was a gracious act   on the part  of  the  naval   authorities  to seek  to  commemoi-ate it in this way.  Mr. Ernest Waterman, local niana  ger at Princeton for the "Vermillion  Forks Mining Co.  was among Princeton  visitors to the Hospital ball although Mr. Waterman contrived to  mix  some   business with  the  trip in  looking after interests of the coal company which is now supplying a lot of  coal for Hedley consumers.   The Vermillion  Forks Co. have for years been  the  mainstay of Princeton  and had  the  misfortune of being identified so  closely wj^^J^J^itsn^ts^yeijis before  there was any hope of any immediate  return for  their enterprise; and that  their period of waiting and loss   because of the necessity for waiting has  not proved more costly than it did has  been due'to careful local management.  Lately the company   under a subsidiary chjirter has given tlie town an  ambitious     system    of    waterworks  which has just been opened  and an  analysis of the water supply   by the  provincial    health    department    has  shown  that it is pure and in every  way fib for domestic use.

Mrs. Rich tei- returned home on Saturday from Victoria, whither she accompanied her daughter Bessie on her  return to school.  Mrs. Armstrong, of the lower Si-  niilka.iiieen, who has been visiting her  home in Indiana, returned a few days  ago accompanied by her father.  Mark Spencer is disposing of his  household effects preparatory to leaving for the western peninsula of Ontario where, he and his fatuilv will  take  up residence.  Walter McRaye and the Lyceum  Players who are the fourth contingent  of ii. P. Walker's of high-class entertainers are booked for Richter's Hall  for the (ith of February.  Rev. Mr. Cleland, of Penticton, will  hold Church of England service here  on Sunday next, .morning and evening. After the evening service the  annual meeting of the congregation  will he held.  As usual there was a good representation from Keremeos at the hospital  ball held at Hedley on Friday evening  : last, the following being in attendance  INIrs. Daly, MissUaly.Mrs. .T.A.

Elsewhere on this page will be found  the program  of a two da.ys'   course in  fruit growing to  be held in  the town  hall  here on   Monday and   Tuesday,  February (ith and 7th  under the auspices of the provincial department of  Horticulture.       It is  unnecessary  to  suggest  to  the fruit growers of the  valley   the great benefit that can be  made to accrue from attending  each  and every one of these sessions; the  names  of the various subjects  on the  program   will    do   that.    What   we  might suggest,  however, is  that, each  come provided  with  pencil and note  book.  .1. .1. Armstrong returned last week  from his annual trip to the coast. He  states that a number of Vancouverites  are laying plans for building on their  fruit lots in this district next summer  and otherwise developing their holdings. While in Vancouver he met  Mr. J. H. Kennedy, who, in reply to a  question as to the intention of the  Cheat Northern, stated that work on  both ends of V. V. & E. would be pro  scented vigorously as soon as spring  opened. The latter intelligence is  somewhat reassuring after rumors of  the closing out of tlie commissariat at  Princeton and tlie pulling of the contractor's outfit from the front back to  the end of the railway; actions which  are not calculated to inspire one with  the idea of vigorous  pushing  ahead.  We frequently hear complaints  from our readers of the news service  on this page, nor can we blame them.
