The Gazette  has always jnaintained,that the  truth  is all thatiCauip Hedley,.needs and in  this case we hold  that iit is too  bad  that as good a property as the Golden  Zone should be made ridiculous in the  eyes of; mining men, for that is the  only effect that such advertising can  have.    The Htat.einents are so  baldly  and brazenly ridiculous tliai,t the experienced mining man will spot the  imposition at fii:**t glance and it is only  the greenhorns and servant giirls who  would be at all likely to be taken in hy  it. JJong before Brooks saw the claims  columns of matter descriptive of the  property and its prospects and  possibilities were published by the  'Gazette, and yet the man had the  cheek in his letter published last week  to say that we did not know anything  aliout the proposition. He poses us  an experienced miner but the people  here know him in no such connection  and any evidence they have had on  that score would point to quite the  opposite.  ���������Because he wrote things at time-?  thatcould hardiy be called good yun-  <liy school literature, some have  jiuraped at the cone usion that our own  Col.

It runs thus :  " There is no subject more solemn oi  more important than that  of the influence which we exert,  for good - nr  for   evil, one  upon  another.,    if we  obey   the   law   we   are  the cause. of  others doing the same.    There is far  more "intercourse and   sympathy  between men now  than  iu  the distu t  past.    In  these days  our lives, w rk  and duties are inextricably c-mpii.-; t-  ed, so that in  all  we do and in all we  teach   we   influence,     consciously   or  unconsciously,   many  who   we  know  not face to face.    Whether  we will or  not   we   are   always   affecting   those  around us, always transmitting g.od  or evil.    \\*"e cannot be fools or  profligates  without cm sing men,  and   wc  cannot be wise and   pure  in   thought  without blessing them.   Let us strive  to convince  the ignorant among  us,  the dark and disgraceful mass around  us."  THE REAL DOPE  Shortly after the conclusion of the  ���������an-Niwl general -meeting held by the  shareholders of't'he Bank of Vancouver Tuesday afternoon, January J4th.  Mr. L. VV. Shatford, M.P.P., the  retiring ge-nei-il manager, was the  -recipient of a .handsome presentation  .in'the form ivf an illuminated address  from the managers and staffs of the  various branches of the hank, who  had taken the opportunity to express  itheir admiration for the work he had  accomplished -during the past, year,  .their loyalty to .himself, and their  regret as to his decision to resign.  Mr. XV. E. Jardine, assistant man-  ���������ager, acting on behalf of the staff,  presented the address.  In replying to the sentiment ex-  pn-ess-ed by the memorial Mr. Shatford  spoke of the deep appreciation which  he felt at tlie receipt of such a  memento.-'' It was doubly valuable in  his eyes because it was not only a  tangible something to remind him  that his work in the bank had been  appreciated, but italso was a reminder  of friendship and business associations  wliich he would never forget.  " There   is    no  ' one    thing    more  essential to a bank's success and   welfare," declared Mr.  Shatford, "than  .the.co-operation;.loyalty and  interest  displayed hy its employees,  and  I'do  not believe that any. bank .in  Canada  has  a   more   thoroughly efficient and  conscientious staff than that possessed  hy the  Bank  of Vancouver.���������'��������� During  my term of office   I   am. pleased   to  remember .tha.���������;. there,., has  -hc'.ej.i ::iio-  friction, in any phase of bin'-  work.

In continuing Mr. Shatford expressed  the hope that he would in future come  in contact with the officers of the bank  through the medium of the oflice of  vice-president which he still held on  the directorate.  Later in Ihe afternoon the officers of  the head office and inspection departments of J,he bank presented Mr.  Shatford with an address on leather-,  and a handsome walrus club bag. Mr.  F. Dallas, the inspector, read the  address, which stated in part:  "* We take the liberty, sir, to express  the deep and personal , feelings of  friendship and 'admiration which we  hold for you, in spirit-as whole-hearted  and in terms as sincere as that merited  bv the event."  A" Mining- Paper Makes Some Comparisons and -has Nickel Plate Leading the  Bunch.  (Mining and Scientific I'rcss)  Mining eouipanies in Biitish Columbia have had an unusually  prosperous  year,   having  declared   in   dividends  during 1912 a total of $],312,870.    The-  Hedley Gold  Mining  Company  leads  with a decimation- of $8(5(),()()0, or at  the rate   of   111)   per cent.,   while  the  Standard Silver Lead Mining Company  with $425,000 exceeds in  amount but-  not in rate, having paid 2I.j  per cent.  The   British   Columbia  Copper  Company has'pnid $177,512 and declared ah  additional dividend of 888,75(1, payable-  early, this  month,   while the   Lo  Roi  No. 2, Limited, has paid $29,400 or at-  the rate of one shilling per share.

Dr. Roche, Minister of the  Interior, has been in receipt of many  letters of congratulation in regard to  his order in removing the immigration  restrictions on Newfoundlanders coming into Canada. Former residents of  tlie Ancient Colony have particularly  appreciated the move of the minister  and have written him thanking him for  the courtesy he has extended to Newfoundland and also expressing the  hope that the Borden government  may be successful in bringing the  Island into confederation. They also  hope that the move will result in more  Newfoundlanders coming to Canada  instead of going to the United States.  TRY THE  Hedley Gazette  for  (Greenwood Ix'dgc.)  A most amusing incident is just   to  hand from France.    The famous Albi  glajss works,  owned  and  run   by  tl.c  work people themselves, are the scene  of a strike !   The story  is   this :  The  works   were   purchased    in   IS9li   for  $00,000 hy the  Socialists and   handed  over bodily to  the workpeople.     At  first all went well ; then Socialism began  to find  its  feet.   The old  hands  started to exploit the newcomers with  all the ferocity of hardened capitalists.  Men began to take holidays when and  as they chose.    The output diminished  and the revenue decreased.   Then the  Paris committee, in whom  the  works  are vested,  stepped   in   and  tried   to  restore order nut   of chaos, by regulating wages and hours of labor, while  the men were informed that the habit  of   knocking oft'  work  as   the   fancy  took   them   was   detrimental   to  the  interests of the concern, and could not  be tolerated.    Could free horn  Socialists lie down  under this  impertinent  interference     with    their     liberties ?  Never I    They   went on   strike   and  extinguished   the  four furnaces !    It  will   cost   something like   $10,000 to  start them again, and when the workmen   get   tired   of    twiddling    tl eir  thumbs and come  back to  work  this  sum must come out of their pockets.  B.C. LEGISL11TO  The Local House is now Down to Work  ���������Debate on the Address Completed���������  Meaty Bill of Fare Presented.  Fllie      Tob    Pritltinfif 'And this is Socialism in practice!  The British Columbia Legislature  met on Thursday of last week with  the usual tiuie-honored formalities.  This being the first session of a new  parliament it was necessary to re-elect  a speaker and Air. D. M. Eherts was  again chosen for that- position,  The speech from the throne made  reference to the healthy state of provincial finances, to the visit of the  Duke of Connaiighb and his family, to  the bountiful crop and the honors  which have been won by the province  in the products of the Held and the  orchard, with an indication of some of  the legislation-wliich will engage the  House during the session.  The adoption of the address was  moved by Manson of Skeena and  seconded by Wood of Alberni, both of  whom made excellent addresses.  The "Western Canada Irrigation Association,   meeting   in    Victoria   last  week, took up thc matter of protection  of forests  around   the   headwaters of  streams.    There was a , strong feeling  among the members that the maintenance   of   a   woodland   cover   un   the  mountains was the only real  solution  of   the   problem   of   constant    water-  supply, on which the fruitgrowing industry depends.    Where water is high  in   the   spring   and   low   in   the  hot  summer months,.it :was argued, there  is ''no-real, chance "given , to   the-iari'd to -  yield the crops of which   it's capable.  It has been proven time and again that  with the forest there is a steadiness in  run off, and a general increase  in   the  amount of water-.    The forest protects  snow from the rays of the sun, holds  moisture in the soft mulch cover, and  through   old  roots and   the  loosened  ground, transfers water from   surface  to sub-surface drainage  and   prevents  evaporation.  In the case of the Tennessee Hi ver  in the United States, whose headwater  forests have been devastated, has been  found that in twenty-four years the  increase in floods in proportion to the  flood-producing rains is about 19 percent.  The,da mage wrought by this increase  is greatly oirt of proportion to the excessive waterflow. Losses of many  millions are wrought annually by  floods, destroying the work of many  years, and the utility of the soil wliich  has been carefully preserved through  irrigation.  European countries are spending  millions annually in an effort to make  fertile many valleys which are at  present being subject alternately to  deluge and drought, and c-onseiiuently  utterly unfit fur agriculture.  If the Province of Biitish Columbia  is to maintain the lead which she has  already attained in fruit producing it  is essential that no fires he allowed to  lick the one "retentive influence, the  forest, off the mountain slopes.  As a result of many urgent demands  from fruit growers in the Okanagan  Valley, the Forest 'Branch has determined that a very strict patrol shall  be maintained during the dry months,  and the fire protection branch of the  Dominion Railway Commission has  issued an order tor more efficient  patrols along the lines of railways.  ,' The Canadian Pacific's British Columbia business increased $1,500,000 in  1912.

This opens up a wide"question and a  most intei eating one and the Gazette  owns up to no smnll amount of curiosity t-i ascei tain the particular form  the legislation   mav take. !  So well .did Dickens do his work ;  fifty years ago and run re in showing  up the abi'ses of the debtors' prisons  throughout ICngland that the tendency of legislation all through Britain  anil her colonies during the past forty  years has been to make it impossible  to collect a debt from or unduly oppress the man who ' cannot pay, and  unfortunately the .man who wont pay  has benefited liy it in a corresponding  degree. In fact it is openly claimed  that there   is   now   no   such   thing   as  imprisonment  for  d-'.ht   ntivwhere in !  i .. |  the Uritish Kinpirc, and while noin- j  inally this elnim is quite true, it is in  reality scarcely accurate for a man  may be sued for debt and judgment  obtained against him, and if he owns  any properly, this, under certain i-e-  stiiclions and exemptions, may be  sei'/.ed upon to satisfy the claims  against him : but where he is not possessed of the necessary property or  effects upon which distress may lie  levied, that is where the pinch conies.  Niivei theless there is such a thing as  putting a man in prison for debt, and  in English prisons it is by no means  uncommon to find them there and  occasionally it happens in Canada.  The way in which it can occur is this.  The man who has been sued and judgment nbtiiiued against him, may he  brought up on a judgment summons  and the judge may order him to pay  a certain amount per month towards  wiping oil' ihe claim. Then if he  pays no attention to this order he may  be imprisoned for contempt of court,  which is a. distinction without a difference.  The protect ion which has been  given the poor man against the oppression of the insatiate, inhumane  money-grabber by the reforms which  have come about through changes in  the laws relating to debtors, has been  a very good thing in   itself, but it has  j been by no means an unmixed good  I for it has also provided another  means by which lie may be. fleeced by  the inevitable deadbeat who is as well  protected as himself. We have only  to look about to see examples of this,  f.u- eveiy community has its quota-  only some communities are cursed  wich a greater number than their  proper share. Every one of us who  may try to recall examples will have  several of them in mind. These are  not as ii rule the uneducated nor an-  they men who have had no opportunities in life but the very opposite, and  their advantages appear to have  served only to make them bolder and  more effective deadbeats. Neither  are. they .ill of them refined Harold  Skimpoles . Ki oin this class theories  who sulTer most are the hotel-keepers  and small tradesmen, for these dead-  beats will run board-bills and store-  biils without giving a moment's  thought of how they are going to pay  them. Their promises, notes of hand  aud 1. O. U.'s are given without stint  and with the utmost serenity and the  wonder is that their victims toleiate  the fiatid long after they have reason  to know that they will never get anything.  It is really time that something  should be done, for men who cannot  all'ord the loss have to keep up these  harpies in addition to their own families. Some of these deadbeats will  pay a whiskey bill or a gambling  debt which they are pleased to characterize as debts of honor, but they are  impervious to demands for payment  from those who have fed them. Jail  is the proper place for them and the  law should he changed to enable them  to Jje landed there with, the least  amount ot trouble and expense.

It was .Mis. Brown's intention to give the concert in December- but as there were several other  local events crowded closely together.-  that month it was thought inadvisable  to add another 'which would tend to  draw from those being held. Her  past appearances here, were so well  enjoyed that it will be a treat to have  another evening as well as the opportunity of hearing talent from adjoining  towns that most of us would he unable  to hear other wise.  G. P.

In most of new  places through the west there has not  been the degree of permanency that is  found in Vernon. All has not been  beer and skittles with them there in  the last twenty years and there, were  times when it would almost have appeared more prudent to seek pastures  new, but the man who hung on in this  case was the man who won out, and  both the present and the future look  decidedly better than anything they  have had in the past.  The snow plow lias had to he used  freely up at the mine this winter in  keeping the trolley line open for traffic  in ore haulage.

Rotherham and  there is no reason to anticipate any  trouble in having it made for Mr.  Jackson has already fully demonstrated in Hedley his ability and inclination  lo run a good house. The orny  hindrance to the giving of immediate  possession on completion of the deal  was the matier of the transfer of  license and in all probability that will  be settled in a few days.  Now, if it is for their pay those (51.0  men of Charles H.
