Pickard .left last week for the  coast after a rather busy month's  work looking after development operT  atio'is on the Apex properties a short  distance east of Mie Nickel Plate and  on tho Oregon near Hedley and situated on the watershed between Sixteen and Eighteen Mile creeks. He is  expected back again m a .few weeks  but meanwhile work is proceeding on  the Apex although the 100 foot tunnel  for which a contract was let last fall  was completed a fortnight ago.  apex wo UK  Tlie contract let on  the Apex last  fall   to McEachorn   Bros,   and   three  other associates,   was   for 100 feet of  tunnel to meet a. drift which had been  run for some distance from  the bottom of thc old shaft which had follow  ed the ore body from  tho'surface.   Of  course they knew at the time the contract was let that 100 feet would not  reach the   face of  the old drift  but it  would be a fair commencement and  after   a careful   examination   of  the  ground   had  been   ina.de   by   Messrs.  Rodgers :and Pickard it was decided'  that instead of running it all dead as  laid out by Bobbins'.' they would deflect it in the direction of a line of contact where ore was most likely to be  found, and from  there follow the contact to the face of the old drift which  had been left in  good pre.   The first  contract secured the object sought and  arrangements  have  now   been   riiade  for McEachei-n Bros, to  continue tlie  work  and supplies  have  been laid in  to last them until spring.  OREGON  WORK  On this property two men, McNulty  and Kirkpatrick have been working  since .November.- Considerable work  had formerly been done on the property both in open cuts andtunnels but  the most of it was done in a tunnel  run by Henry Bahrs who had the  property under bond at one time but  ran out of funds before he reached the  point where ore should be found.  The work that has now been done  was principally surface prospecting to  learn more of the trend of the ore  bodies from the outcrop and when the  weather was too stormy they worked  in one of the tunnels. The results being obtained were so interesting, that  work was continued longer than was  originally in tended, but this week they  expected to knock off and nothing  more will be done until spring.  While the work was being done Air.  Pickard rigged up an assay outfit from  parts of some others around town and  kept strict tab on values. Some of  these are understood to have been  surprisingly high. One sample seen  by the Gazette whs most interesting  and bore evidence of the presence of  some of the rarer minerals in which  cobalt bloom figured conspicuously.  in all probability the coining spring  may see work resumed and the possibilities are most encouraging.  COWAN���������KENNEDY  The  home of Mr.  and   Mrs.   .1.  IL".  Kennedy, at 1215 Eleventh Ave West,  was  the scene of an  interesting and  pretty event on Wednesday evening,  when their daughter, Alice,   was united in marriage to Mr. Harold P. Cowan",  manager  of   the   Cowan   Co.' at  Montreal, and son oi Dr.   and Mrs.  Cowan, of Napanee, Ont.    About fifty  guests were present for the wedding.  The    house   was   brightly   decorated  throughout' with    cut   flowers    and  greenery.  In the drawing-room wheie  the ceremony took place,  the   color  scheme was in green and white.     Festoons of greenery and white carnations  were  carried  from   the chandelier to  the corners  of the room, and the bow  window was banked with palms.    The  hall  was done with  pink  carnations,  and the dining-room   with red carnations. Rev. P.Clinton Parker performed the ceremony, assisted by Rev. Dr.  Spencer. The bridal party entered the  room as the wedding march was play-  ee by Miss McPhail.     First came the  bridesmaid,   Miss Hazel  McKenzie, of  Penticton,  then tha little flower girl,  Miss Vera McAlpine, of Lytton, who  strewed the  bride's   path   with   rose  buds.    Then   came the bride  wilh her  father.    Two  little pages.  Master Arthur   Kennedy,  the   bride's   brother,  and Master Jack Fyfe, formed an aisle  by .holding  white  ribbon   with   tulle  bows.     They  were  dressed in  white-  serge suits.     The bride  looked dainty  and sweet in  a gown  of soft white  satin,  draped   in' a   tunic effect, and  trimmed  with  cut steel   and fringe.  Her  bouquet   was a.  shower of white  ioses, lilies of the valley and maiden  hair fern.   She also carried a. handsome bag of hand crocheted Irish lace,  lined with satin, the gift of airs. Alex.  Kellett.     The bridesmaid was gowned  in. pale pink  satin,   veiled  with pink  ninon, and trimmed  with pearl passementerie.     Her bouquet was a huge  B.C.

Victoria. B. C, Jan 12���������The first  business sitting of the third term of  British Columbia's twelfth provincial  parliament was also exclusively devoted to the addresses of the'inover and  seconder in presenting the formal resolutions in reply to his honor's speech  from the throne. Both Mr. AVatson  and Alexander Lucas were in excellent form and discussed current public  affairs as clear headed men of business  and patriotic British Columbians and  Britishers. Upon the completion of  the seconder's" address debate on the  resolution was adjourned by the Lib-  eial leader, Mr. Brewster. The discussion is.not expected to be at all  prolonged.  SEVI^KAJ^ IJIIJ.S PRESENTED  The business of the first working  day of parliament proved purely preliminary. Mr. Tisdale presented the  petition of Vancouver city for its extensive and complicated charter revision. Mr. Fraser, Cariboo, at the same  time brought forward the petition of  the British Columbia & Alaska Railway Co. for various amendments in  its charter, and there was also introduced by message from his honor, presented by the attorney general, the  short but significant bill essential for  the ratification   of   the   consolidated  If the citizens of Hedley regard.the  local hospital as an institution which  must be kept alive at any sacrifice it  will be up to all the citieens to endeavor to do their share and that means  not only the loosening of the'purse  strings but also the saciifice of time  and trouble to help it on.  For the past few months the Board  have found themselves sailing very  close to the wind and the utmost care  has been necessary to make ends meet.  A feature which made it unusually  hard for the board to finance the institution during the past two years is  the amount of charity . work which  had to be done in the way of treatment to patients who eithei could not  pay or preferred lo get out of it.  The annual meeting of the association will be held on Tuesday the 23rd  in Fraternity hall atS o'clock p.m.  when citizens are asked Lo turn out  and show greater interest in the affairs  of the hospital, for if the public would  come out to the meeting and learn for  themselves where the money has been  coming from and how it has tieen expended there would be less-criticism  and less foundation less talk than some  have been in the habit of indulging in.

MacGowan,  Vancouver, vice-chairman of the house  committee and chairman of the ways  and means committee, both nominations being made by the premier and  affably seconded by the opposition  leader.  URGES SHORT   LINE TO XELSOX  In the cource of his speech in moving the address, Mr. Watson said:: "I  am heartily in favor of the extention  of the government railway policy in  the direction of securing direct railway  connection between the coast and the  southern interior by means of a line  across the Hope mountain. The Kettle  Valley line-is doing important work  under its contract with the goyern-  metit, but 1 would like to see a railroad-from Vancouver to Nelson that  would shorten the time of the journey  between the two places by 12 hours as  corn pared with the? present schedule.  Such a railroad would be of great  value to the coast cities of British Columbia."  Mr. AVatson spoke for So minutes,  reviewing the forthcoming legislation  and drawing particular attention to  the much sought, after railroad from  Vancouver to the Peace river country.  Mr. Lucas, in seconding, dealt with  the development in his constituency  of Y.-ile and, speaking of the appioach-  insr inauguration of a provincial university expressed ihe hope that a  faculty of agriculture would lie included wliich would sec to the introduction of more scientific methods of  farming.  MINING   NOTES  In his review of Boundary operations and speaking of the B. C. Cop  per Co. Mr. Jacobs writing to the Mining and .Scientific; Press says: "During  the year seveial properties were bonded find exploration carried on; among  these was the Voight group of 08  claims in the Similkameen district,  whieli, it is hoped, will develop into a  big copper mine."

HEDLEY MASONS DONATE  Another  Grant of. $50 is  Made   to  the  Funds of the Hospital  For the second time a grant of $50  has been made by Hedley Lodge A. F.  <fc A. M. and this last comes at a time  when it is urgently needed to help to  finance an institution to which the  town is committed for maintenance.  While the Masonic body does not pose  as a benefit society and enters into no  agreement with its members' or any  one else to render financial assistance  in return for membership its annual  appropriations for works of benevolence of which the outside world hears  but little, unless in the cases of .support to public institutions where concealment of the act is impossible,  amounts to enormous sums of money.  In this province the Masonic ("rand  Lodge basset a good example to the  subordinate lodges by ilsminual giant  to the sanitarium at Trampiille for  treatment of tuberculosis aud-most of  the subordinate lodges find local charities which they assist.  THE NEW BROOM  (Greenwood Lodg-p..)  Greenwood changed mayors on  Monday, and last night a poker game  was running in one of tlie local hotels.  Bowser's Liquor Act is a very laughable farce in this city.   ������������������������   ���������,   GENERAL NEWS  Vancouver turned down "Mayor Taylor hard.

That  the lateness of the harvest did much  to   precipitate the  congestion there is  no doubt  whatever.     The amount of  waste in grain that  has resulted from  inability of the railway  companies to  handle it at the time required   seems  almost  incredible, and the  wonder is  that in  view of  the very  careful estimates  which had  been   made of the  wheat crop the railways were not prepared   to  make a   better showing in  deal ng with the situation  than  they  have done, even   if the   lateness of the  season did prevent them from getting  to   work  on the  task  of moving the  grain as soon as they   had counted on.  The great question is, what is going to  be the outcome and what precautions  are  to be  taken   to  prevent a recurrence of it? Three Canadian remedies  are peoposed.   These are the shipment  of a large quantity of the grain to the  Pacific coast, the  addition of another  outlet by  way  of Hudson's Bay and  the third by enlarging the capacity of  eastern    Canadian   canals   to   permit  more, of the grain   reaching the Atlantic: through Canadian channels than at  present.    There   is still another aid in  solving the question and that one will  not rest upon  Canadian initiative but  has to do with the politicians and railways of the.United States. The Democrats  claim  that  they  can  solve the  problem by throwing oil' the duty on  Canadian wheat and allowing United  .States milleis and United States railways to  take a  hand in   the game by  building more railways into the Canadian west to take out the grain which  American millers are so anxious to get  hold of.  In that contingency it will be  up to the Canadian railways to make  enormous additions   to  their   rolling  stock and doubletrack their lines from  the  wheat fields,  and  the Dominion  and   provincial   governments   should  see  that ample elevator  capacity is  provided on this side of the line. These  are precautions necessary to maintain  for Canada the maximum benefit from  her own  grain production   for   they  will induce British and Canadian capital to provide  more milling  capacity  in Canada and will also   tend   to a  movement among United States mill-  The Canadian Northwest is likely to  lose a bunch of Doukhobours who are  going to try southern California. Canadian tailors will not be a bit sorry to  see them go.  The Bank of Commerce are moving  to increase their capital,to $25,000,000.

Brookes is expected in  Hedlev shortly when arrangements  will be. made for getting the Kingston  under way.  Saturday's mail was very light. No  mail from Vancouver came through  and no mail from the east. There was  evidently, a kink in the service at some  point or other.  A January thaw which set in at the  beginning of the week furnished a  change from the winter programme  we had been having for about a  month previous.  A Washington state doctor who has  drugstores in Molson and Chesaw is  having informations for illegal whisky  selling fyled against him in batchcs.of  nine at :i cime.  The days have already lengthened  out 32 minutes in the evenings and  8 minutes in the morning. The improved quality of the light will also be  appreciated by those who have photographic work to do.  Two more banks opened out in  Princeton on Monday. They were the  Bank of Montreal and the Royal Bank  of Canada. This will make four banks  until such time as the E. T. branch is  formally taken over by the Bank of  Commerce.  The matron of the hospital has expressed the wish that parties who  have old linen to spare in the shape of  old sheets or pillow cases or anything  of that kind, such articles will be  thankfully received at the hospital  where good use can be made of them.  Hon: Martin Burrell has induced the  Post Oflice Department to put a mail  clerk on the steamer Okanagan and  thus relieve the congestion in the Penticton post office as well as securing  quicker delivery of the mail at all hike  points bv doing away with the necessity for carrying mail matter past.  The ice harvest in Hedley has commenced and the ice being taken from  the Siniilkameen river is said to be  over 30 inches thick in places which is  altogether unusual so early in the  winter ,as this. It is not at all likely,  however, this thickness has been formed of cloar ice frozen in place but must  have been due to the lodging of anchor  ice.  It is a new thing to hear of depth of  snow being an inconvenience in the  Similkaniecn valley, but JoInY'MfXitin  who is^cutting wood u be >.u t",se'yen^fiiiles  up , thei.i'.ive.r from here says he has  been unable to do any work for tho  past,two,weeks. When he would fell  a tree it sank out of sight,in tlie deep  snow arid he had to shovel it out before he could saw it up and this on-  tailed an amount of extra work which  cut down his profit on the labor expended.  Boundary papers tell of the death in  St. Catharines, Out., of Rev. Thomas  Paton who was the first missionary in  the Boundary and they give the date  as 1893. The editor of the Gazette has  a. very vivid recollection of listening  to the deliberations at the first meeting of the Kamloops presbytery held  In Vernon in August 1892 and at that  meeting Mr. Paton was appointed to  the Boundary field. Doubtless editor  McKelvie of the Vernon News remembers it as he was present that day.  The Nelson News issued a very excellent annual review number but like  many other excellent things it had its  imperfections. As it purported to be  a review of mining in the inteiior of  the province it is rather singular that  it could find so much space for mere  prospects in the Kootenay that have  not yet produced a dollar and had  nothing whatever to say about a mine  in thc Similkameen riding that paid  25 per cent dividend in the  year 1911.  The Dixie Jubilee Singers gave a  swell entertainment on Wednesday of  last week to a good house. The eon-  cert was given under the auspices of  the Hedley General Hospital and the  troupe fully sustained the reputation  which preceded them. Especially in  the choruses and quartettes the harmony and perfect blending of the  voices left nothing to be desired and  the solos by the contralto were particularly fine. The generosity with  which they responded to encores gave  evidence of their desire to please and  the taste, and judgment they displayed both in the character of the numbers given and the general deportment  of the troupe made friends for them  at their first appearance. No matter  whether it was the simple Foster  melodies of the sunny south or the  more pretentious music like the "sextette from Lucia," they were equally  familiar with it and equally effective.

The bride and her parents were very  popular in the Similkameen and her  bestowal of the positions of honor at  the function showed that she was  loyal and constant to her old friends  in this pint of the province.  The B. C. Mining Exchange published in Vancouver reproduces in its  December number the announcement  of the Hedley Gold Mining Company's  25% eividend duly credited to the Hedley Gazette of December 14th. The  Boundary papers and most of the local  publications through the Kootenays  and elsewhere through the province  had it.  The Canadian Almanac for 1912 is  the usual interesting iind indispensible  publication which makes it the ready  reference for the Canadian business  and professional man. It contains  among other things: astronomical calculations, star tables,  latitude tables,  i  complete customs tariff, banks with  branches, British army and navy,  militia list, postal information and  list of post offices, list of newspapers,  clergy list, legal and judicial information, life insurance, banks and,other  stocks with their prices and dividends.

That affair  and the Zimmerman murder at Penticton are two blots on the administration of justice in this province and a  bad mark against the detective service  until such time as the mysteries are  cleared up.  E. Jacobs devotes a two and a half  inch  paragraph   in  the   Mining   and  ���������Scientific Press to a review of operations in the Nickel  Plate  which  he  says is tlie only property in the   Si-  inilkainoen (riding we presume) which  produced ore during the year.   The  figures of production given by him are  approximate as the year's output had  evidently not been known  Avhen the  paragraph was  written but they were  sufficiently  near  the correct amount  to give a right idea of the season's  output.   It is to be hoped that the day  is now not very far distant when both  Hedley and the West Fork of Kettle  River will furnish   some   more   producers to help remove the stigma of a  solitary dividend payer   which   does  not   sound   good   when   proclaimed  abroad oven if that one mine has a 25%  -dividend to its   credit for thc year.  That fact was not stated in the paragraph   and   had   evidently   not been  known to Mr. Jacobs when his copy  to the Mining and Scientific Press had  ���������been sent forward.  W. W. Van Meter who has recently  arrived from Mexico where lie was engaged professionally with the Redeemable Investment Co. and finds rather a  marked difference in climate between  that country and the interior of British Columbia.     In   response   to  inquiries by the Gazette into conditions  prevailing in  that  stormy   southern  republic  he said  that foreigners   who  had capital  invested in  mining  ventures in the country and were endeavoring  to  carry   on   operations  found  matters far from being safe, but he is  in hopes that more stringent measures  will soon be taken  to clean   out the  bandits and other lawless  individuals  who are at present menacing life and  property.    Madero he thinks is a man  who means well and has  powerful influences  backing him both in  Mexico  and other countries from which investors had come   and his greatest fault  seems to be that he is disposed to be a  little more tender hearted than would  seem prudent  under  present  conditions.     A military dictator is needed  until lawlessness  is put down with a  heavy hand.  The late president, Diaz,  had done much for the country,  but  the grafters under him who obtained  an ascendancy by taking advantage of  his declining years had been  his undoing.     The   extent  to which   their  grafting and misrule had been carried  left patriots scarcely  any alternative  than  to take up arms in defence of  their rights.  ���������  fShatfbrds, Ltd.!  !  !
