GREAT NORTHERN HOTEL  HEDLEY B.C.  Bar and Table the Best.   Rates Moderate  First ClassAccommodation  JOHN JACKSON, Proprietor  ������ x  Grand Union I  r>>  Hotel  *  X  HEDLEY,  British Columbia j*  X  X  Columbia was opened on January 15th  by his honour Lieut-Governor Patterson whose term of office has almost expired, The event was attended with  the usual ceremonies in which the  militui-y played a prominent part and  a brilliant company of spectators was  present to witness the function.  The speech from the throne read by  his honour the Lieut-Governor pitched at once into the matter of the prevailing financial condition and the  steps tn ken and to be taken to relieve  us far as possible. To quote this por^  tion, it said :  "Prevailing conditions in the money  market have delayed  the parment to  the  Government  of.large sums outstanding on  account  of   the   sale of  townsite and district lands ;  but these  amouhts~are hearing a profitable rate  of interest.    Treasury notes have been  issued  for  the sum of $1,500,000, and  legislation affecting the 'Revenue Act'  and  providing for a  Provincial  loan  will  be submitted to you.     The high  standing of Biitish Columbia's credit,  I am   pleased to observe,  still continues."  Other  matters  outlined  in  the address go   to show that the session will  not be one devoid   of interest-but the  contrary. -. Some of them that are outlined are meafuies dealing with water  and timber resources,  amendments to  the   land  registration  act,  a measure  consolidating and amending the laws  relating  to  municipalities,  an act for  the    regulation   of   trust   companies,  legislation respecting schools, the consolidation    and   amendment   of   the  game laws,   measure's concerning railways and legislation affecting the rev  enue act.   ' In addition  provision is to  be made for university buildings, foi'  the  province   building in London and  other   enterprises.     Besides   the   A.t-  torney-General has also undertaken to  introduce a good deal of legislation  not mentioned in the address. Thelegis-  Iature will also consider the reports of  the municipalcommission,  the Royal  commission   on agriculture,   the commission on laborymd result ofthe public inquiry into the price of coal. Since  the speech from the  throne does not  include all government business,  and  does noc touch measures or resolutions  brought forward by private members,  there is every reason   to expect that  the present session will be one of marked interest.  The address was. moved by W. VV  Foster, the new member for the Islands, in an interesting speech of half  an hour and seconded by W. J. Man-  son, the member for Dewdney, who  dealt with the finances ofthe province  and marked step hy step the develop  ment of its resources.  The absence of anything like a serious opposition should render the debate on the address a very short one  and the real work of the session will  be begun with little delay.  I of  the Hudson  JB.-iy.     Tho  company  during  the year   obtained control of  another  likely property in Porcupine  and have it under development; With  one  producing  mine and  two  underdevelopment, Mr. Brown 'must have a  busy  time of it,   but he was never the  one to get rattled or- lose, his head under fti-ess.      When he came to Hedley  and took   hold of the woi-ks,   he had a  problem   to  work  out  that few men  would  have cared   to tackle,  for  the  ore  w;is unique,  and had   the man in  charge   of   it  attempted    to   adhere  slavishlo to any other method of treatment  in vogue,   he would  have  been  stranded;   but A. H. wasn't built that  way,  and laboratory tests went hand  in  hand with actual operation of the  plant then in use,  until he worked out  the treatment for himself.    His plans  for improvement of the plant, then in  use  here,     comprised  very   much   of  whaohas  been done since  the present  company have taken   hold;   but   the  change of management took him away  from   Hedley in the fall of 1905 and  metallurgically tlie clock may be said  to have stopped for four whole years,  during, which a few hundred thousand  dollars  of value  went down  the river  in rich   tailings,   before   the   present  company'.'began to impound them until they had changed theplant to take  out the values that were being lost.  than at any former stage. The Gazette has made several trips down to  the work and eveiy day has seen  most substantial progress.  During the past week tlie up stream  apron was completed for .half the distance acioss the iiver,"the cementing  on this portion being done, and so far  as this part of tlie apron is concerned  These Are  Some of The Bon Bons That  Canada Would  Have  Thrown  Away by Reciprocity  Tlie National Policy is still doing,its  work of building "up industrial Canada.  During the past year the official statements credit   Canada'   with   drawing  from the United States  no fewer than  eighty-eight manufaclur'ng industries.  The capital investment represented by  these eighty-eight industries   is placed  at eighteen millions.     Employment is  given   to  10,875 people,   which  means  the support of.fifty thousand people.  It  is represented   that these  industries  _ ���������...^,.   nii-a   came   to  Canada  because   their  t is ready for the  floods,  and. there   hope of getting  the  Canadian   home  for all  eternity.    The  excavation  for   market without  moving was frustrat-  the main body of the dam which is 80  i feet wide.a rid goes considerably  deep  I er than the apron is also pushed ahead  with its face down   to  full  depth  for  110 feet or  half  tlie   distance,across  the river. Below this again tlie ditches  are  driven    down    for   the  requisite  depth   to,make room  for  the cement  prongs that are to act as the roots for  this  huge    molar.    As    soon    as   the  sheet piling is driven   in   the  bottom  of these two deep ditches  the  cement  will tbe poured for the  reinforced concrete which is to form   the dam,  and  the old  discarded   inch  Ciible off the  gravity, tram is being got  ready to' be  put    in   with    the  cement.    All   this  cable is being subjected to lire to burn  the grease  off* and  thus enable it  to  secure a better bond.  The cement mixer has been given its-  first trial in putting in the reinforced  concrete in the apron and it is found  to do excellent work. It is driven by  an electric motor which has been put  in place and duly protected from . the  wet.

After    the   installation    the  lodge was closed when  good justice  was done to  tlie supper,   when   the  usual toasts were honored.

In fact the  experimental stage- of tlie pumping  arrangements .'seems to be, over and.  things are more in shape for real work  in that respect and from this out  there should be no further trouble.  As. to the 'I probable progress in   the  next few weeks little can   be said at  the present writing,  for much will depend on the weather and also on  the  effectiveness,or other-wise  of the  improvised arrangements for. the  pile-  driving.

The .home   market  was  created and is  protected by the tariff.  This   market is  so valuable  that it attracted tlie attention of United States  manufacturers several years ago. Had  the Liberal party succeeded in< its effort   these  firms   would   have   gained  access   to tin's  market without investing a   dollar in  Canada   and   without  spending a dollar in the employment  of labor in Canada.     They would not  have   built up new  consuming centres  in   Canada  where the  Canadian   producer could  sell   his   products.     The  maintenance of   the Canadian  home  market   has   brought   half   a   billion  dollars  of American  capital   into the  Dominion.  ' Reciprocity  would   have  kept that money out. Think it over.  The   maintenance of the  home market,  which has been brought about by  the  people's  emphatic (indorsation of  the ^policy of  protection to  Canadian  industry in all lines, is of as great concern to  British Columbia as to any of  the Eastern  provinces,  and there will  be- no  more  readiness  here  to  dally  with  any free food  policy  than with  reciprocity.  It is also of vital moment  to  the cities and ports'.of British Columbia -that.the  building up of Canadian industry under the same policy is  proceeding apace'.'.

The fire alarm whistle and bell went  at a little, before seven   o'clock on Saturday morning for a. fire at  the fore-  bay.     The  building  was a mere shell  of boards sheltering the head-gates of  the   penstock and   although   it   was  burned down it could scarcely be said  to qualify as a tire loss, for it shouldn't  take  more than  $100 to replace it, as  the  head-gates  were  not burned   but  merely charred a little.     There seems  no doubt that the cause of the fire was  a defective stove that was placed there  for the benefit of the watchmen on the-  flume and to help  to obviate the danger   of freezing   up   the   head-gates.  Dick  James  was  on  duly,   or about  coming off duty,   when  it happened,  and having   returned   from   his   last  trip  up   the   flume   before going  oil*  shift  he .wentover to  the air receiver  and   kindled  the  fire under it for the  tipplernan   to get it in  readiness  for  operating  the  hoist at seven o'clock.  He had just got through  with   this  when  he looked towards   the fore-bay  and saw  it in flames  although he saw  nothing  wrong  when he  had been in  the  place fifteen  or twenty minutes  before.     It  was   burning   so   fiercely  when he got over to it  that it was impossible for him to get in to  the telephone, and his next move was to make  for the  tipple and get the phone  in  there  which was connected  with the  superintendent's   house   and   in   this  way the alarm was sounded on the  whistle and taken up by the town fire  bell.

It will be remembered that  some six years ago Major, Hpdgins, an  engineer, kicked against the graft  that came under his notice, but he  was bully-ragged and cried down,and  given no fair chance to prove , his  charges. Later his chief, Lunisdcn,  rebelled, but again the gagging process was applied and the investigation  was rendered ineffective. Now a commission appointed by the present government has been at work for,two  years, clothed with ample powers to  get at the facts. Il'i.-> rumored that  they will be able to show where $14,-  000,000 of the people's money was  squandered and stolen. The road was  ostensibly promoted to.prove a factor  in reducing freight rates, and the only  road that is in a position to reduce  freight rates is the one which has the  lowest fixed charges^ But with $41,000-  000 of stolen money added to tlie lixed  charges of the Transcontinental it is  easily seen what a, crime has been  perpetrated on the people -of Canada.  Is it any wonder those men could fill  up 12000 pages of Hansard with useless speeches on any other topic under  the sun to divert attention from a  tiling like the Transcontinental outrage ?  way expansion nnd immigration going  hand in hand, but there'* is no reason  for them to conclude . that because the  period of rail\yay construction is drawing nearly' to a close, that immigration must for . that reason slack upas  well. In this case there is good reason  to look.for the very opposite. Now  that the railways aie built there is all  the more encouragement for-.settlers  to come on the land and begin producing. It is far- safer that way than go-,  ing in ahead because the railways are  building in that direction. Many a  poor beggor has got fooled by discounting too much on what the railways are going to do.  There is room for difference of opinion   as to the  wisdom or  otherwise of  the Government at Ottawa   in leaving  out   the   matter of le-iutroduction   of  the naval bill in the various measures  specified in the speech from the throne  as  part of  the legislative  programme  ofthe session.   The  leaving  of it out  does   not   necessarily   preclude  its introduction   later  on   in the  session   if  the govei mni'iit see fit to do so.     Of  course   it   is  a   disappointment,   but  nevertheless we cannot but think that  it was sifter all a wise move.    If it is a  foregone   conclusion   that  the Senate  woidd  do as they did before,  it would  be wi ong to adopt a, course that could  result  in   nothing   but  the  waste   of  time of   the Commons;   besides the effect it would produce elsewhere  lo see  Canada    again  side-track   the   movement a.-, she did befoie,  would certainly not be  well  calculated to  enhance  British   prestige  abioad.    If Britain's  enemies only knew the Canadian Senate and   all it stands for, as well as we  do,   it  wouldn't matter so much,   but  they attach an  importance  to it and  ���������  its actions  which   places   the   whole  situation   in an  altogether false light.  After vyhat Mr. Borden said before, as  to  his. purpose of ro-intraducing  the  bill and  the assurance given   to. the  British   Admiralty  that an  irresponsible body like the Canadian Senate as  constituted  a year ago   would  not be  allowed   to dominate  and  thwart the  ���������wishes  of the people  of Canada,   but  that Canada would still pay for the  ships whether they were built at her  own  orders or at those of the British  Admiralty,  it is  a pretty safe  guess  that it is at the request  of the Admiralty' itself,  that nothing  be. done at  the  present time to  re-introduce  thc.  bill  when there is no chance to make  it effective.   The British Admiralty at  present is of the British Liberal party,  and  after the last session  at Ottawa  and the speeches of men like Emmer-  son, Clarke and Pugsley,   they had an  opportunity to size up the methods  and aims of the exponents of Liberalism in Canada and know the futility  of expecting anything to come from  the   re-introduction   of   tire   measure  with the Canadian Seriate as it is.  There is another phase of the question in which party tactics and political opportunism come to the front  and throw some light on wh.y all that  obstruction was offered last year and  something over 12000 pages of Hansard filled with useless speeches to  kill"time and keep the government top  busy to attend to 'sprue other things.  By deferring further action on the  naval bill until it can become effective  through a regenerated senate, there  will  be time this session to attend to  "The   Westminister Columbian in an  editorial    which  .we   reproduce, .elsewhere gives  some valuable .data.deal-  ing   with   the   benefit  to  Canada   in  maintaining     the     National     Policy  which* is compelling  American manufacturers to establish industries in this  country.     Tt  wotdd   make the  lesson  all the  plainer and more conclusive  if  J.he Columbian   had  supplied  the figures for  twelve months preceding the  dale when the Fielding-Patterson-Taft  .pact was  announced   at Ottawa,   and  also   the   number   of    these    United  Slates  industries  which  came during  the interval  which   elapsed   between  the date  of said  announcement and  the memorable day in  September 1911  when  Reciprocity   received  its' turndown.    The Gazette doubtless has the  information   .somewhere on  the piern-  i.-es.   but we are not aware just at the  present moment  where  to  place the  editorial   thumb on it.     We would be  quite   prepared   to   believe   there  is ii  possibility  that the number of  them  which came during the twelve, months  preceding  the Reciprocity announcement   might   be   greater   than    that  shown   by   the  Columbian for  the 12  months just ending.     As long as Liberal ��������� members  persist in   bawling out  in  the  House  of uommons  that the  reciprocity colors  are  nailed   to   the  Liberal masthead, there will doubtless  be  United States 'manufacturers who  want to  extend   their   trade  to  this  country but who are disposed to hang  back,   thinking   that if  they  wait   a  while  the Liberals over here   might  possibly get in power again  and they  could secure what they want without  the necessity  of establishing factories  on   this  side of  the line  to  give employment to residents of this country.  .METEOROLOGICAL.

General   Blacksmith  There appears to be about as much  r - ' -      .������������������������������������.'..         dogma in matters of business and finance as there, is in religion, medicine  and several other- lines. This is plainly seen in.the different views set forth  in financial papers in London and  New York, purporting to deal with the  present world-wide money stringency  and the attempt of many of these  writers to make panada the "goat".  The reason why attention seems to be  unusually drawn to Canada in connection with the tightness is that a country which is borrowing largely is sure  to excite the fears of the money lender.  Canada has been a large borrower  during the past few years because her.  expansion has b.een large and where  the borrower has plenty of high class  security in the shape of valuable assets  and resources he has no need to apologize too profusely because of his extensive ljprrowings.

Keremeos has always  been neighborly in the matter of  patronizing the Hedley hospital ball,  and this year again as usual the fruit  town will be well l-epresented.  In giving the weight of the new  crusher bed in last issue of the Gazette  at 19000 lbs we understated it by only  20,000 lbs. for the weight was 10A tons  instead of 19,000 lbs. This doesn't look  as if the Gazette was in the habit of exaggerating. The total weight of the  ������rusher is 40 tons, but the weight of  the hevaviest casting in it is 194 tons  .ulone.  ��������� Dick James who was on duty as  flume watchman when the fore bay  burned was let out and took his defy parture on Monday afternoon, his objective point being San Francisco.

The annual general .meeting of the  Hedley General Hospital will be held'  on January 27th. All members of the  Hospital Society arid those who take'  an interest in hospital work should  attend. .-.Hitherto the attendance at  these annual -meetings has been very  small and such is. not very encouraging  to those who have been giving their  time to serve on the Hospital Board  and endeavor to advance the interests  of the institution.

The Gieat Northern freight charges  seem to be in proportion to the time  the goods are on the way, but not in inverse ratio. The Gazette paid a freight  liill theotherdayon ashipment of stock  from Eastern Canada that was a para-  Iyzt������r. In classification itshouldn'tclass  higher than third or fourth class; in  weight it was one ton; in cubical contents it was 50 cubic feet or a shade  less than two-fifths of the space taken  by a cord of wood and yet the freight  bill paid was $72.45. As it seemed  more like buying a share in the road  than p.iying a little freight bill one instinctively felt like hanging around  for the issue of some script.  '1 he annual number of the Monetary times is to hand and in its review of affairs for the year it may be  said to afford a glance at the stock  sneets after the annual stock-taking  for Canada. To give some idea of the  intense interest of the number-, here  are some of the financial articles  which it contains; "Canada Must  Have Substantial Gold Reserve" by  Prof. Adam Shor-tt; "Will the Panama  Canal Benefit Canada" by John Bar-  tett; Mortgiige Loaning in Western  Canada" by A. L. Crossin ; "Investments of the United States in Canada,"  by Fred XV. Field; "War and .Fluidity'  of Money" by Russell Davenport Bell.  These are only a few. The number to  be appreciated must be seen and scanned.  When joint action on the part of  the leading centres in the Similkameen valley through their representatives in parliament who invoked the  might and majesty of the Canadian  Railway Commission, proved so successful in securing a speedy restoration of the daily train service, there is  every encouragement to sail in again  and have a shy at that Oroville layover and also the connecting of the  two railways at Midway for the transfer of freight. In both of those matters the assistance of Greenwood could  be sought to add additional weight to  the demand. Then there is also that  little matter of the completion of the  Great Northern spur from Midway to  Greenwood. That is a matter in which  Greenwood' was given rather a raw  deal.

Moving picture exhibitions continue  to be given on Wednesday and Saturday evenings each week, with entire  change of films each night. The bill  of faro for Saturday night last was  highly entertaining and was rather  above the average. The piece "Her  Inspiration" brought in a cast of  Parisian artists whose acting is good,  even if it is a trifle more elfusive and  emotional than goes down palatably  with us stolid Anglo Saxons. The  same cast have been seen in two films  formerly presented -here; these were in  "Coast Guard Service" and "A Tale of  the Sea".    The animated weekly series  had several interesting scenes,  and an  enjoyable   film    was    "The    Spectre  Bridegroom", which is the first of thc  Washington Irving tales to come in  for impersonation in   the   movies in  Hedley.     This entertaining tale from  the  "Sketch Book," for the most part  followed   Irving's    narrative    pretty  faithfully with one or two exceptions.  The hallowe'en party and the apple  peeling was an   extraneous   interjection as was also the introduction of  the two witch scenes and is doubtless  a liberty that these dramatists are always in the habit of taking for stage  effect.     It was historically misleading  too   to    make    young     Von  Alten-  burg return from the wars "to New  York" when Irving has it all in Germany.    It was pleasing to note, however-, that the ripple of humor which  ran  through the entire piece was all.  Irving's, and one had  to admire the  faithfulness displayed in portrayal of  the two vigilant censorious aunts that  had been coquettes in their day and  "there is no duenna so rigidly prudent,  and inexorably decorous,  as a superannuated coquette."

Dancing and games .were partaken of in a  jolly good spirit and it was not until  the small hours had arrived that the  party broke up.  The writer had the pleasure of  spendinp Saturday afternoon and  evening with Dan McCurdy of Similkameen and was very much surprised  when Mr. McCurdy went out in the  garden and brought back three varieties of flowers in bloom. The writer  figured on nraking a little lone item of  this, but on returning to Keremeos he  found that many varieties of flowers  had been picked. While passing Dune  Campbell's place on Monday he was  called in to see a couple of fine pansies,  some pinks and lilac in bud, and  many flowers were in blossom at the  "R" ranch. It does sound a little like  exaggeration but the proof of the pudding is the eating of it.  LONDON FEELS HAPPIER  So Far As Canada Is Concerned���������Bankers Have Situation In Hand.   ���������  London, January olh.���������Sir- George  Paish's elaborate review of the financial position of Canada, dated from  Winnipeg, tends to have a steadying  effect among investors here.  A careful resume of- the views of  Anglo-Canadian financiers published  in the Financial News, quotes these  financiers as saying that Canada's rejection of reciprocity was the finest  advertisement Canada" ever had hi  Britain. When the force of this impetus to business showed signs of exhaustion the proposal of "the naval  contribution once more appealed to  the British imagination-. .  tin ox SAWINIS  WOOD  Last year 305 million dollars of British money was publicly invested in  Canada. The reaction showed itself  first in real estate, but financiers agree  that there is nothing seriously wrong  with Canada, and that the trouble lies  with London, where the' curtailment  of credit is world wide. Canada's best  answer is in the American phrase  "Say nothing, and go on sawing  wood."  It is not believed, or suggetsed, that  London bankers intend any drastic  curtailment of Canada's credit and the.  money needed in Canada is not fresh  borrowing, but to meet maturing obligations. The bankers add that they  have the situation well in hand, and  that they have always deplored the  extreme enthusiasm, and now equally  deplore the undue alarm.  The full text of Sir-George Paish's  article is to be. found in the Monetary  Times of January 9th and it makes  very instructive reading.  J. A. BROWN  Notary Public  CONVEYANCING.

Suggested Bank Amalgamation  GENERAL NEWS  The South African strike found hard  work making headway against the  vigorous stern measures taken by  Premier Botha for its suppression.  Botha has not soon forgotten his military methods.  Victoria spoke her preference very  emphatically in the election of her  mayor for 191-1. The defeated candi  date went under with a majority of  2000 piled up over him. The new  mayor is A. Stewart.  The murderer Krafchenko who escaped at Winnipeg has been recaptured and his counsel and some others  who are believed to have had a hand  in the escape are jailed along with  him.  The annual meeting of the Bank of  Vancouver shareholders which was to  be held yesterdays was postponed until  March 17th. It was intimated by the  president that an offer to amalgamate  with another bank had been received  and was under consideration. Time  was necessary to further consider the  proposition and lay it before the shareholders for their action and to do this  the adjournment was necessary. It is  understood in financial circles that  several offers from larger banks have  been made to the Bank of Vancouver  directors. Being largely a local organization the Bank of Vancouver has a  connection and business in Vancouver  and the province generally that would  prove a valuable acquisition to any of  the larger banks.���������New-Advertiser.  Other news despatches concerning it  indicate that it was the Royal Bank  which made the offer for amalgamation.   *   MINING NOTES  KEREMEOS-PENTICTON  TU/EDDLE'S  AUTO STAGE SERVICE  > Tweddle's cars are* corrifort-  \        able.
