The past year has been a most notable one in the history of Hedley's  great mine, the Nickel Plate and other  mines of the group owned by the  Hedley Grold Mining Co.  For many years prior the story of  the year's doings has been merely a  record of extraction with no effort to  keep development ahead and nothing  done to the plant further than the  necessary repairs to keep the machines  moving. The past year, however, has  seen all that changed, and as a. result  the mine and pjantare easily worth  double what the present owners would  have given for it two years ago.  The development work done dnring  the year, apart altogether from what  work was done in the way of ore extraction, totalled, for all the properties of the group, 905 feet of drifting,  520 feet of sinking and 2S0 feet of upraises.  Other exploratory work which  while not exactly regaidedas development work was the diamond drilling  of which 8137 feet was done.  The tonnage milled dining the year  was 46,828 tons oi" ore and in addition  there were several thousand tons more  broken that are now lying in the  ���������sfcopes ready, to be sent down the  tramways to the mill. For the greater  part of the year the monthly ore  tonnage milled was over 4000 tons, but  during three or four months it fell far  below that because of a partial dismantling of the old plant to permit of  installation of hew equipment. The  highest 'tonnage ever milled in any  year befoie was 44,508 tons.  So far as tiie improvement of  the  mine is concerned as the   result of exploration    and   actual    development,  there are tnany  new ore  bodies now  opened  up  that  were  not  known  to  exist a year ago.     In No. 4 tunnel for  instance, driven early in 1900 by M. K.  Rodgers,  which had been condemned  and abandoned by his successors who  even   went so  far as  to take   out the  trackage from the drift,   there is now  being taken out two trainloads of ore  per day ahel from that tunnel new ore  bodies are opened up  both above and  for 120 feet below it;  and Mr. Rodgers  who with bis brother Harry Rodgers,  went through the various workings of  the property a few days ago, declared  that the mine was in  better position  to-day so fur as ore in sight is concerned, than it ever was.  , The most significant item of the development operations was that of 520  feet of sinking. This is a feature which  was hitherto  practically unknown in  the mine, the previous workings being  confined to tunnels and adits.    Ft now  shows  that the  mine will  respond to  development which looks to depth and  so far   the results have borne  out the  belief.    Better still, the ore  bodies en  countered   in  sinking  have   kept   up  their  values and shown no   tendency  to become leaner as depth is attained.  In addition   to the development done  on the   Nickel Plate,  Sunnysides and  Woodland  tlie past year has seen the  resumption  of work  on   the  Bulldog  which had been practically untouched  during the interim since Rodgers gave  up  the  management,  and   from   the  development and  from the showings  encountered  both in  bore  holes and  drifts   it is evident   that   tin;  present  year will see   this claim furnishing its  quota of the ore sent down to the mill.  Announcement is made from Ottawa  that the Duke of Connauglib has  formally accepted the post of Governor-General of Canada and will arrive  in this country in1 September next to  enter upon his duties.  Prince Arthur as he was first known  to Canadians is no stranger to Canada  This is the second time that a member  of the Royal Family has occupied  Rideau Hall acting in that capacity  and it seems only a short time since  his sister the Princess Louise and hei'  husband the Marquis of Lome did the  honors of Rideau Hall, and yet it is a  third'of a century.  ROSSLAND'S SOUTH BELT  Hopes Of The Camp Rest on Ever In-  ,   creasing Improvement of Properties  in That Locality  FLORENCE GROUP BONDED ..  A.bond has been given by Thos.  Bradshaw on the Florence group of  mineral claims and also on his lanch.  The,party to whom it has been bonded  is P. AV. Gregory, of Vancouver, who  has *been looking up preperties for  English capital.  The. price stipulated in the agreement is $10,000 for the ranch and  $100,000 for the mineral claims. The  parties holding the bond have until  the middle of April to make the first  payment on the mineral claims and  only until the end of February on the  ranch.  The Florence group consists of the  Florence, Kitty Fraction, Zerust Fraction, Florence Fraction. Bullonbeek,  Whale, Little Pittsburg, and Eagle's  Nest No. 2 mineral, claims. They lie  favorably for catching good ore bodies  and have very encouraging showings.  Considerable work has been done on  them but not much of permanent  value in the way of proving extent.  The Rossland Miner in telling of the  development on the Bluebird claim  and other properties in the south belt  now under development says that all  eyes are turned on that long neglected  portion of the camp.  Of the old locations in that portion  of the camp there are the Bluebird,  Mayflower and Lily May under development and all of them are in ore  of good pay value. Rossland business  men are interested and are putting up  most of the money for the development deing done. They are trying to  sink to a depth of 500 feet and from  there they expect, from the showings  they now have, to make the diamond  drills show up sufficiently large,ore  bodies to warrant the carrying on of  mining in that camp on about as big  a scale as ever before.  L. O. L. ELECT OFFICERS  MONEY IN MINING  Interesting Figures are Given to Show  This Fact.  That mining investment is the  soundest and'most profitable of all  when made under the advice of competent engineers and managed with  capability and integrity, is evident  from tlie fact that for the first eight  months of last year 120 mines paid  $48,301,333" in dividends, and this despite the abnormal prices of the metals.  What other industry or system of  investment can show such results'* In  the same period seven smelting companies paid dividends amounting to  $11,269,600.���������Mining and Engineering-  Record.

MASONS EXTEND THANKS  Hedley Masons on the first opportunity .afforded them of expressing-  their appreciation of the services of  all those who contributed towards the  divine service on Christmas in commemoration of the anniversary of St.  Johns Day, tendered a vote of thanks  to the pastor for the sermon preached  011 that occasion, to the leader of the  choir and all the members thereof including the organist and the owner of  the instrument  used on the   occasion.  CANADIAN NAVY LEAGUE  B. C. LEGISLATURE  House  Occupied with   Debate   on   The  Address  The Provincial Legislature of British Columbia opened on Thursday the  12th inst. and the speech from the  throne by Lieutenant-Governor Pater-  son outlined the legislation which will  engage, the attention of the Legislature.  The address was moved by J. P.  Shaw of Kamloops and seconded by  Mr. Manson.  OLD PIONEER GONE  DtTSlDKlVOUK  Neither was improvement confined  to the mine and the reduction plant,  but the year witnessed general improvement to outside work as well.  Perhaps first in importance was the-  new electric tramway to No. 4 tunnel  some 3000 feet in length which had to  Continued on Page Two  George. C. Tunstall, one of the faithful hardy band who crossed the plains  from eastern Canada to British Columbia in in 1802, died at Kamloops on  the 0th inst. He was one of the kindliest men in British Columbia and  many an old pioneer's last days were  cheered by linn. Very few of the  members of that old band of pioneers  who crossed the plains are now surviving, .1. A. Mara, A. L. Fortune of  Enderby and brother and Mrs. Schubert, mother of our townsman, Mr. .).  A. Schubert, are all of the survivors  who are personally known to us.  DIED SUDDENLY  Amos Bi.Tiie.s, of Penticton, died  very suddenly on Wednesday of last  week. Ho had gone out to the pump  house- and not returning for some  time they went to look for him and  found him dead. It is thought that  heart failure was the cause. The old  gentleman and his family -weiV popular in Penticton and his death is regretted by all.  The Gazette recently sent for a. cbpy  of Capt. dive PhillippsWolley's book  on the.Canadian navy and the. perusal  of its pages has been thoroughly   enjoyed.     It has all  the. charm  of  the  author's   bright    trenchant    literary  style   and   possesses,    the   additional  quality  of being the  theme . that lies  nearest his heart.    So much is this apparent that one does not need to know  the circumstances  under which   it is  being   published   to   appreciate  that  fact.    The  book is a collection of addresses  the author delivered   on  the  subject and as each address dealt with  a different phase  of. the  subject   the  whole dovetails  into a  most comprehensive   treatment of   the   question.  The  book   is   published   1)}"   William  Briggs of Toronto and Captain Wolley  has paid for the publication out of his  own pocket.   It is got up cheaply with  paper cover  both for sale at 25c  per  copy and  for free distribution  and all  the  receipts  from  sales  of  the work  will go towards  payment of i.ther editions  for distribution.    The  patriotic  Canadian   will   buy  the book,   read it  and lend it to his friends and persuade  them   to  buy copies   to lend   to   their  friends.  Captain Wolley is Vice-president of  the  Canadian  Navy League  which is an organization which has no  political bias and   has among its members both  Conservatives and Liberals.  Its object   is  to   disseminate   among  Canadians  a   wider  and   truer knowledge  of  what  sea.   power  means  for  Canada and that object attained there  should  be no  fear as to  what the verdict of the Canadian people will be towards   the whole  question  no   matter  how  they  may differ as to ways and  means.    The   Gazette would advise its  readers   to   write   to   tin; Secretary of  the Victoria-Esquimalt Navy League,,  Victoria, B. C, for a copy.    AH honor  to  Captain   Wolley   for liis   patriotic,,  self-sacrificing effort in this behalf.  In  the  part  he  is   taking   he is  dointr   a  thing as,worthy  of the. best traditions  of the British navy and a.������ much calculated to uphold its  honor and advance  its   welfare   as   the  ships'   officers   o  Nelson's fleet who led boarding parties?'*'  i against the ships of  the enemy.  -^'^'Kt'^ay^-i.aig,^- THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,  JAN 10,   1911.  *jc- ���������  . end  Sii'inlkasKae:"!

Sat.  20  :u  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  Premier  McBride made no mistake  when lie chose the Hon.- Price Ellison  as one. of his -ministers   and   took   him  into his cabinet.    The Premier  wants  to   have  around   him   'men   who   are  workers  and   Price   was  always.built  that way.    It was a   happy  idea,  also  sending him over the ocean  to re-visit  his old home and cast  a,  fatherly   eye  over  the  British   Columbia fruit exhibits that wore   being  so  well   managed     hy    Mr.   .13.   Bullock-Webster.  While there Mr. Ellison did excellent  missionary  work   for   this   province,  and his speeches appearing in English  papers are a. compliment to the accuracy of English reporters for they read  exactly like Price; there is something  exhilarating   in   tlie   tone    of   them.  They struck   home, and he seemed to  have had the happy faculty <>f  telling  the people over there  the  very  thing  they  ought to   be told    and  if good  results are   not obtained  from  it wo  are badly mistaken.

A great benefactor was  .   the  "man with the  monkey wrench"  on this occasion.  Some Hedleyites have a shrewd  'snspicition that the Neill who is starring it on the Phoenix hockey team  this' winter is our own Neill of the  Nickel Plate. He moseyed over in  that direction late in the fall with  hockey in his eye, but it was expected  that Nelson would have the benefit of  his services. Phoenix is leading the  Boundary league thus fjir.  The B. C. Portland Cement Co. report a flourishing condition of affairs.  The Great Northern are to have the  bridge built over the river this winter,  and the Cement Co. instead of waiting  for spring to begin work on the prep-  erties are going to start in early next  month. The company has met good  success in disposing of its bonds and  have capital enough to push everything ahead briskly.  A report which was said to have  been brought to town by a passenger  who came in on Thursday's train was  to the elt'ect that an explosion had occurred in the Hotel Penticton and  some particulars were given as to who  had been killed and who injured thereby. The one who originated the story  had evidently a vivid imagination to  make the report take such a form with  all the foundation there was for it.  F. H. French returned oh Saturday  from Vernon whore he had sone to  spend New Years under the parental  roof and bring back his wife and children who had been visiting for a month.  The cold snap happening along as it  did was a little more than he had bargained for and his trip over from Sum-  merland with a temperature of twenty  degrees below zero was somewhat  strenuous. The oldest child Wilfrid,  two years old, had his face frozen  twice on the trip over because he objected to keeping his head covered and  wanted to see all that was going on.  Rand air compressor formerly in use  so as to apply steam thereto and when  altered and rebuilt it lias become a  cross compound condensing steam and  two stage 20 drill air compressor, be  ing also connected to a'pelton wheel  so as to use steam or water or both.  The other  part of the new power  plant equipment  is  that  which  provides the  mine haulage by electricity.  Tn  this   the  former   100   k.w.   water  driven generator  has been superseded  by  ;i 360 k.w.  generator which  may  also  be - driven   by  either   steam   or  water.    To drive  il. by steam there  has. been   installed a 500 horse power  Goldie <fc McCulloch corliss condensjng  engine with the newest type of gover  nor  to ensure absolute  regularity of  speed and  this  is a most  economical  engine,  requiring very  much less fuel  than  the older types of engine.   To  drive, by water,  the large  new generator already referred  to has been direct connected at the other end with a  Doble waterwheel Of equal power with  the engine  under  thc  full  head and  supply of water which   is obtainable  from the flume.    This water wheel is  manufactured by-the John McDougall  Caledonian   Ironworks,   of   Montreal,  and    is equipped  with   Lombard   oil  governor.     Like other machinery it  was  held  up  in delivery   because of.  strikes in. the works  and did   not get  here in time to be  installed before the  water supply for the season had shortened  up. . Thus  it has not had an opportunity  to show  what it is capable  of doing  under more favorable conditions.     An    important   feature  con"  nected with the arrangement is that,  as in   the case of the air   compressing  uniti   it can   run   with both   water or  steam    if necessary,   and when   the  water supply is inadequate, to give the  full duty reciuired,sufticient steam may  be added from   the engine  to supply  the deficiencv.

The estimated cost for new equipment, we understand, was $100,000  but owing to unfavorable circumstances beyond control it has exceeded  that.

Then there were extensive improvements and repairs to the gravity  tram by way of strengthening and in  some cases renewing the trestles. The  flume also which is loOOO feet in length  ���������received considerable attention in overhauling, repairing and renewing in  part.  Other outside work was the laying  ���������of about 7000 feet of water pipe to  supply water for the boilers, condensers and mill.  IX [Villi   POWER   HO US IS  the most radical changes of all took  place. Here-the old water driven plant  of altogether inadequate capacity has  been superseded by one of the most  complete and economical plants obtainable and one especially adapted  to the circumstances, in that it is interchangeable for either steam or  water or may be run by both. To install such a plant necessitated the addition of three 150 horse-power return  tubular boilers, together with pumps,  pipes, feed water etc. making available  Here the changes and improvements  have, been as important if not more so  than anywhere else about the concern.  Two objects were aimed at in the mill  changes.    These were (1) ample power  for continuous economical  operation  and (2) closer  extraction   of   values.  The first iias been obtained, for every  unit in the  null  requiring power for  operation   has  now   been   connected  with the new power plant and is being  successfully operated   with  the   new  electric moters.     The matter of closer  extraction was being attended to even  before the new mill equipment was obtained for a higher saving had already  been effected with a less  amount of  cyanide in the cyanide plant and besides   there has   been   saved   during  the  year  a   big pile of tailings that  will   equal   in   quantity  about  two-  thirds  the total ore tonnage for the  year and while it all goes less in value  than  that sent  down   the   river  by  former managements,   nevertheless it  is there to use as soon as they want to  recover the values therefrom.  The increased tonnage obtained  from the old plant before any new  machinery was installed was effected  by increasing the drop of the stamps  from a (J\ inch drop of the 1050 pound  stamps 106" times per 'minute to a7-A  inch drop 90 times per minute and the  increase by that change alone was 25  tons per day on the 40 stamps.  The new machinery for tho mill con  consists of Bunkerhill screens to classify the product from tlie batteries lie  fore passing to the tube mill for re-  grinding. Classifiers and hydraulic  sizers have also been installed and 12  new Deister tables for concentration  of the slimes. To the cyanide department of the mill the most important  additions have been the Oliver filter  presses and the Merrill precipitation  presses both in operation.  Thus it, may be seen that the vear  has been a particularly busy one in  every department of the industry and  the greatest amount of credit is due  the general superintendent C.P. ..'ones  who has given almost every delail the  closest personal supervision. It will  now be only a few weeks more until  the water supply will bejrin to come  up again and things be in a position to  demonstrate the full capabilities of  the improved plant to accomplish tlie  maximum of efficiency for which it  was designed. The unusually severe  weather of last week has had its use  in pointing out to the management a  'T*ako notice that 1, Robert Carcw Armstrong  ���������*���������       of Kereiiieo.s, li.

During the past -week Miss Annie  Innis and Miss Rita. Kirby have been  selling tickets for the Hospital ball at  Hedley and have, met with good success. Many who do not attend such  functions themselves, recognize the  worthiness of the cause, and purchase  tickets,  People of Keremeos were put to a  great deal. of inconvenience during  the past two weeks through the. failure of the Princeton colliery to deliver  a car of coal that had been on order  for a considerable time. Should the  same situation develop too frequently  many here, who have replaced their  wood heaters with coal burners, will  be disposed to return to the less convenient but reliable supply of fuel to  be obtained close at, hand.  Last weeks zero weather was a revelation to many newcomers in tlie valley of what even the genial Similkameen can put up in the way of storm  and. low temperature. There was the  usual inconvenience; suffered owing to  unpreparedness on the part of many.  We have before pointed out and again  would emphasize the fact that the  attractiveness of the climate here does  not rest in complete exemption from  cold snaps but in the long summers  short winters and the relatively large  number of fine days out of the 867>.  Our advice is to be prepared for the  occasional cold snaps: it will in no  wise detract from the enjoyment of  the fine days.
