Shart Rewiew of Progress in Camp Hedley Properties, Including - Nickel  Plate Group,'Kingston, Golden Zone,  Pollock Mines, Etc.  ��������� Camp Hedley . ,  The' year 1908 has, on the whole,  been one of substantial progress in  Camp Hedley, and has, moreover, been  notable in some respects, for the production has increased considerably  over that of any previous year. While  this evidence of progress is to be  placed together to the credit of the  Nickel Plate group of mines and the  management thereof, the year has also  witnessed earnest effort in the development of other important properties,  and as a result of the work done upon  them these are brought nearer the  producing point. ,  NICKEL PLATE GROUP  On the Nickel Plate group, owned  by the Yale Mining  company.,  the  principal work of the camp was done,  under the management of F.~ A. Ross,  who is also manager oLthe Daly Reduction  Co. ; these' two corporations  having for the most part a common  ownership, vested in the Daly Estate,  although there are also mjnor interests  in   both   concerns   apart  from   this  estate.   The . Nickel Plate group consists in all some 22 mineral claims, although   there   are   only   three,   the,  Nickel Plate, Sunnysides and Woodland fractions, are being worked.   As;',  in the case of many large one-level  mines with enormous, bodies of more  or less variable grade of ore,  the mining operations are confined to extraction,   and   the exploratory work   is  done by diamond drill, no   development work,  per se,  by means of drift  or winze being necessary.    The year's  operations have broken  all previous  records, while the plant instead of being allowed to deteriorate,  is in far  better condition than formerly.  There  has been  mined and milled   for the  year,   16,551   tons   from  the   Nickel  Plate,   17,135 tons  from   Sunnysides  No. 2, 6,236 tons from Sunnysides No.  3, and 4,116 tons from Sunnysides No.  4, making a total of 44,068 tons for the  year. The concentrates turned out in  the mill amounted.to 1,257 tons. The  highest tonnage ever before mined and  milled in a year was 35,000 tons. The  recovery of values for the year has  also shown a greatly increased percentage, distributed as follows: extraction on plates 2L per cent., on  vanners 41.5 per cent.; and in cyanide  29 per cent.; making a total extraction  of 91.5 per cent.  In mining, new ground was opened  up in Sunnysides Nos. 2, 3 and 4, the  last-mentioned being a totally new discovery. In exploratory work with the  diamond drill, 1,500 feet of diamond  drilling was done chirring the year.  Formerly this was done by contract,  but during 1908 the company did it  with its own drills. No new equipment was added during the year to  either mine or reduction plant, further  than for renewals and repeirs, except  a couple of new hoists for Sunnysides  3 and 4.  Last week saw the steel across the  Similkameen river about a mile this  side of the old Webster ferry and,the  steam track-layer proceeding with  track-laying towards. Ashhola creek.  Of course,that does not mean that the  first bridge is completed, for the rails  are laid' on false work and the bridge-  builders -will complete, the structure  later, traffic of the work trains over  the falswork being maintained all the  while.  One steam pile-driver goes to the  small bridge over Ashnola creek, and  the other to the second crossing of the  Similkameen at the lower end of  Brushy Bottom, while the horse  driver is to begin at Hedley about the  end of this week driving the piles for  the long high trestle over Twenty-mile.  This trestle will be straight, 1000 feet  long and high enough in places to require a three-decker. The piles for it  are now being vcut by A. Pleasance's  men in the heavy timber up on the  mountain about opposite the mouth  of Twenty-mile and brought down in  a chute.  There is every evidence that contractor D. Stewart, who has the track-  laying contract is determined to rush  the work so as to carry out the track-  laying programme laid out four weeks  ago, and thus far they are a little  ahead of that progiamme.  , The rush work may entail a little  more cost for it takes money to lay  down material and do work ahead of  the track end, and the fact that they  are doing some of it in that way is  evidence conclusive that the work is  being rushed and operations are being  conducted under pressure.  WIRELESS PROBLEM SOLVED  Secrecy Can ��������� Be Attained by Adjustment  of Electrical Waves.  THERE IS NO HOLD-UP  HOT AIR LINE BUILDS  ���������       (Grand Forks Gazette.)  The Spokane &B;C. railway, known  as the "Hot Air Line" is  building to.  Spokane.  Last Thursday, Superintendent De-  muth of the Spokane & B. C. mil way  went over to Spokane and started  several gangs 'to work on . building  from Spokane this way.  As announced in the Gazette some  time since, the right of way from Republic is apparently obtained (after  some'difficulty in the courts.) It is  reported that the road will now be  rushed to completion and its effect  upon Grand Forks will be considerable.  The Spokane. & B. C. raihvay has its  headquarters, in this city ; it is expected that the road yet will be extended  from Grand Forks to Vancouver and  will be a valuable link in the plan of  the present railway systems of British  Columbia and Washington.

This  group consists of the Martin, Maple  Leaf and Pine Knot mineral claims,  and as those lie on a steep hillside the  development work was confined to  tunnelling on the Martin claim, which  is nearest the river. Former work had  been done both on the Martin and  Maple Leaf. The work this year done  on the Martin consisted of No. 1 crosscut tunnel driven 70 feet in all, cutting  the vein on the foot wall at 55 feet and  Continued on Pago Two.  "Big Game Shooting in the Yukon  Territory,"by    that   veteran    sportsman,   Mr. C. G. Cowan,   opens the exceptionally fine July number of Rod  and Gun in Canada,  published by W.  J.  Taylor,    Woodstock,    Ont.     It is  clear   from   the   account   given   that  big game  is  plentiful in  the  Yukon  and provides line sport for those who  cim  afford time and  money to travel  so far.     Mr.  Reginald   Gourlay   predicts a Good  Fall for Hares   and   a  consequent relief to the big game of  the North from Indian raids.     Canadian and American sportsmen  should  note and govern  themselves accordingly.     The Passet Hound for Sport  is an  article  which will interest  all  dog lovers.     These are but samples of  a long list in which fishing and hunting   topics    come   in    for    adequate  treatment,    while    numerous    short  papers    supply    variety   and   enable  sportsmen  to  pick up the magazine  at  any   time,   confident   of    finding  much that will give ��������� them   pleasant  reading on    topics  which   appeal   to  them all the year round even  if the  force is increased  somewhat  in   the  summer weather   when  the   wild is  calling in many ways.  - Seattle, June 28,���������Seattle men who  do not claim to be scientists, have  solved the problem of t>ecrecy in wireless telegraphy. - Since the discovery  of this, method, of 'communication  wireless engineers and scientists have  worked on the problem of controlling  the wireless waves' so that secret communications could be held.  The wireless station used to solve  the problem    is at   Aberdeen.     For  several    months    experiments    have  been carried on with' this station by  R. H. Armstrong,  Pacific Coast manager of the   United   Wireless   Telegraph     Oompciny,     Chief    Operator  Thomas and Operator Dent.  . The Aberdeen station was completed a few months ago and was given  the highest power of any station on  the pacific Coast.     It will work up to  seven and one-half kilowatts  capacity.    By extensive experiments it has  been found that this plant is the most  delicately attuned of any station in  the West.     The operator at Aberdeen  'hears    all   stations    from    Cordova,  Alaska,  to the stations farthest south  on   the Mexican frontier.      He also  works diiectly with Honolulu.  But it is not this wonderful capacity for hearing other stations that'has  solved the problem of secrecy. It is  the station's ability to send forth a  wave into the ether that is longer  than any other, transmitted over the  Pacific, or, in fact, anywhere in the  country. The waves that can be shot-  forth are so long and powerful that  it goes completely over receiving instruments at a comparatively short  distance, and is caught by stations  and steamers at great distances.  The wave length for wireless stations has been limited by the Berlin  Treaty to not inore than 400 to 450  metres. For this reason the United  States Government ���������������������������will not permit a  station to use a wave length greater than this. As a result, experimenss  Avith great and powerful wave lengths  have.never been made in this country.  When the big Aberdeen station was  completed it was found a -wave as.  great as 3,000 metres could be shot  forth. This, unheard of wave length  was a .surprise to the wireless experts, and it was decided to make  tests with the newly-developed wavelets. Since that time many experiments have been made with these  gigantic undulations of the ether.  At the same time it was found  that the liners plying between San  Francisco and Honolulu' 1,600 miles  off the coast, worked perfectly with  Aberdeen. These experiments proved conclusively, say the wireless experts, that secrecy can be obtained by  the perfect adjustment of these long  waves.  It was also found that wave lengths  can be directed' in certain definite  directions. This fact will also enable  operators,   with   the   proper   instru  The   Agreement   Entered   Into   Several  Months Ago. at the A. Y. P. Is  Beiug Faithfully Lived Up To  The Gazette can bear testimony to  the fact that the agreement entered  into between the A. Y. P. commissioners and the hotels and restaurants of  Seattle to prevent any increase in  price for accommodation is being  faithfully carried out.  A representative of the Gazette  spent several days in Seattle, part of  the time down in the city and part of  the time on the fair grounds, and can  truthfully say tlmt- there did not appear to be anywhere the slightest evidence of a hold-up, such as unfortunately took place oyer a year ago on  the occasion of the visit of the fleet;  but on the contrary the hotel accommodation gave if anything better service for the money than was to be  obtained in either Spokane or Vancouver. They are evidently making  an earnest, honest attempt to live  down the mistake already' referred to  when the fleet visited Seattle in the  eaily days of the summer of 190S.  When the publicity department of  the A." Y. P. gave out about three  months ago that an understanding  had been ariived at wherein the hotel-  keepers, restaurants and proprietors  of rooming houses had agreed not to  raise prices and that the heads of the,  waiters' and cooks' unions had agreed  that they were not to go on strike  during the continuance of the fair, we  must confess that we were somewhat  incredulous concerning it, but are prepared now to admit that such incredulity was unjust.  It is quite possible that even now it  may be more difficult to get a room at  the hotels i down in the city than it  was three weeks ago, but we don't  believe that the prices will be a whit  higher ; and neither do we think that  anyone will lack for accommodation  if they will go to the .information''  -bureau in the administration building  and ask to be directed to where suitable rooms can be procured as reasonable price.  "Better still, if parties write that  bureau of information beforehand,  stating the date upon which they expect to arrive in Seattle and ask to  have rooms provided them, they will  in all probibility receive word where  to go immediately on their arrival with  the guarantee that both the accommodation   and the price will be right..'  WHAT C. P. R. MAY DO  Rumor That a Portion of the Road Eastward From Nicola will be Built.  merits, to send aerograms  without interference to any desired point.  The Aberdeen station is situated on  a high hill, and the antenna wires  are stretched between two trees, 250  feet high, from which the limbs have  been cut. The operating room is situated between the trees. At this great  altitude and with a clear sweep to the  open sea, some of the best long-distance  records known have been made.  CHANCE FOR THE CUT OFF  (Nicola Herald.)  You can never tell anything absolutely definite with regard to railway construction until the rails are  actually being laid. However, there  seems to be very good grounds for  believing that the C. P. R. will build  from Merritt into the Similkameeni  this year.  The Coldwater route has been decided upon, and the plans, profiles, etc  are now at the head office in Montreal.  The Herald has learned from the  best of authority that the contractors,  McDoneU & Czowski, will be in  Merritt with their constructien equipment {is soon as they have completed  their engagment at Field.  Vancouver baseball club is gravitating steadily but surely towards the  bottom of the northwest league.  (Oroville Gazette.)  An   impression  prevails   from   Oroville on the north to Wena tehee at the  south  that    work   is soon     actually  to commence on  the   Oroville-Wen-  atchee branch. It is an impression not  only growing out of a very strong desire on the part of the people living  along the route as well as at both ends  to see  the  consummation of long deferred hope,  but based upon information that can be considered altogether  reliable.     Of course  there are many  who will doubt until  they see work  really  commence,  yet the feeling of  certainty is so general that the public  is almost in a  celebrating frame of  mind. Anyhow the question will in all  probability be finally settled in a very  few days, and in the meantime people  have a call to rejoice over the flattering prospects.  GENERAL NEWS  W. C.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  MEMORIAL TO GENERAL WOLFE  Last year Canadians celebrated the Tercentenary at Quebec,  ''"commemorative.-' of tlie founding of Canada. This year a  somewhat similar commemoration will take place, but tlie  scene will not be in Canada, but  at Westerham, in the. .county of  Kent, in England, which was  the birth-place of General Wolfe  who on the 13th of September,  1759, established British dominion in Canada by his famous  victory on the plains of Abraham, which laid the fortress of  Quebec at his feet, although he  himself died on the battle-field.  Thus 150 years have rolled by  since that event, and strange to  say, nowhere in England except  a memorial tablet in Westminster Abbey, is there anything tangible to keep alive his  memory. Canada years ago did  her part by the erection of the  joint monument to Wolfe and  Montcalm, the two opposing  generals who gave "up their  lives  in  that   momentous   en-  The United States senate has passed  a measure taxing pulp products coining into the country . from places  which impose an export duty.

While Hodgins  gagement. That monument was  erected on the Plains of Abraham and while Wolfe has been  given his proper place in history  and in song, his native  place has never yet honored  him. That omission, however,  is now about to be remedied as  will be seen from the following  extract from the Standard of  Empire :  "An interesting letter on the  subject of a memorial to Wolfe,  the  heroic victor  of the  battle  on the Plains of Abraham, was  published in the "Times" recently, Lord  Roberts,  Lord Strath-  cona, Sir George White, and Sir  Frederick  Young being among  the signatories.      They  write :  "The  battle   of   Quebec   being  fought on  September 13,  1759,  the present year-marks the 150th  anniversary of Wolfe's victory,  itself the most dramatic event  of Pitt'sColonial policy and the  commencement of British Canada.    Besides  the cenotaph  in  Westminster  ��������� Abbey,      which  from  its  sequestered situation  does little to illustrate his fame,  Great Britain boasts no worthy  was  unfortunate in not being able  to  make a better showing  in  the  way of   substantiating all  his  charges    of    over-classification  and other frauds  by means  of  which contractors  were adding1  unnecessarily to the cost of the  road, a great many were strengthened in their belief that there  was  something    behind  it all.  And now we  have the resijma-  tion of Lumsden  who   appears  to be less inclined  to talk than  Hodgins was, but who  may be  none  the less angry for tlmt.  With    Lumsden's     resignation  comes rumors that the G. T. P.  are very much dissatisfied with  the excessive cost   of completing the line  east  of Winnipeg  and will refuse to take  it over  at the price that has resulted  from so much grafting.   Whenever the contractor figures too  prominently in  polities,    especially about election time, it is  pretty  safe   to   conclude   that  there  is likely to  be found a  quid pro  quo,  and Avhen the  engineer in   charge   finds  the  contractor's      influence     paramount and  he himself powerless to stem the current of imposition and fraud he is left no  alternative but to resign.  KINGSTON" GROUPS  At the beginning of the year this  property,   owned   by the   Kingston  Gold Copper Mining Co ,  ceased development   work,   which   had   been  ea rried on  eon tin uously... for about ,15  months prior to that time.; Work was  resumed- early in the fall of 1908, under  supervision of H.C. Pollock. The claim*  belonging to the .company consist of  the Kingston, Waihorse,'Metropolitan,  and Grand View. Most of the previous  work had been done on the Kingston,  although  the Warhor.se. had also  received    considerable    attention    and  large surface deposits had been shown  to exist.     Since  resinning,   work  has  been continued on the Kingston,  but  on a bolder scale, .which  appears  to  have heen encouraged  by the work, of  the   Geological    Survey    under,.   Mr.  Camsell,  and excellent results are being obtained,  large, ore  bodies being  located.     On the Metropolitan,-much  surface work has also been done, with  excellent results.     Power is needed to  operate satisfactorily,   the rock being  too hard for economical hand work.  GOLDEN ZONE  This group, owned by Messrs. Marks,  Brodhagen. and Murphy, has, witnessed active, operations during the year.  A five stamp-mill was installed-and  equipped with Wilfiey concentrator,  and a prospecting plant, consisting of  boiler, hoist and No. 5 Cameron pump.  In excavating the mill foundation a  large body, of .hew ore was found. The  mill was not ready for operation.until  late in the summer, and by that time  the water supply had begun to give  out. A company, known as the Golden  Zone Mining Co., limited, has been incorporated to work the property, and  with the large bodies of payable ore in  sight their prospects are exceedingly  bright.

A batch of six assays from what  was considered the lowest grade rock  on the Florence is found to go from  about $6.50 to $10.50 per ton.  Hedley was well represented at the  Princeton Dominion Day celebration,  and particularly the dance at night  which they all seem to have enjoyed.  The rumor that resident engineer  Hale was to take up his abode at  Princeton appears to have been premature. Mr. Hale knew nothing  about it. ,  The Gazette extends congratulations  to Bro. Thos Collinge, of the Summer-  land Review, 'on "his marriage' to Miss  Mary Carswell, late of Paisley, Scotland.  There is a strike on at the B. C.  Copper Company's mines, at Greenwood^ The company sire apparently  taking advantage of the shut-down to  increase the smelter capacity to 900  tons per day.  J. Innis' racer"{"Silver Tip" won 2nd  prize in the free for all running race  at Penticton on Dominion -Day, and  but for the misfortune, of casting a  shoe in ' the race, he could easily have  taken first place.  Mr. Madden finished up his contract  a short time ago. Like others who  have got through with their takes, he  would be particularly tn teres ted in  the opening up of work on the section  from Princeton to Otter Flat.  , The many friends of A. D. Broom-  field will learn with deepest regret the  bereavement he has sustained in the  death of his wife which took place at  the, Greenwood hospital Saturday,  June 26th, following an operation. The  funeral was largely attended.  The following������personal taken from  thevNews Advertiser will be of interest  to.Mr.E. A. C. Studd's friends in the  Similkameen. ; The item atates: "A  marriage'has-, been arranged between  Miss Evelyn Holmes, second daughter  of Colonel J. G.' Homes, DO.

When there he availed himself of the. pp.portunity:to witness the  games of lacrosse at Westminster for  ;the Minto cup. Both games, from  start to.finish were intensely interest-,  ing both because of the; superior skill  and endurance exhibited and the  closeness of the games which kept the  result in doubt until the last minute's  play-was up.  Chief Constable, C. J. Bunbury, was  in town on Monday, and they do say  that something; was heard about a lid  for Hedley. Oh, well! it shouldn't be  top ruuch for everybody to obey the  law anyway, and as for licences, obedience to the law had to be promised  by each licencee before a licence was j  first granted and it should be no hardship to be asked to carry out any conditions that we agree to.  Major A. M. Anderson, the G. N. R.  right-of-way man, is busy negotiating  right-of-way for the Oroville-Wen-  atchee branch. Down the Okanagan  he appears to have run on to a bunch  of pelousers who want; more fpr the  few acres that the railway will take  olf than they could get for the whole  ranch, and with these hei will likely  have, to institute proceedings to expropriate or as they call it over there,  "condemn."  , Constable Sproule brought Jimmy  Jamieson, half-breed, down . from  Princeton on Monday, and yesterday  morning-' left with him for Kamloops  where the magistrates of Princeton  committeed him for trial on a charge  of making an assault with a knife. It  is Jimmy's old trick, and from the  regularity with which prison officials  both at Kamloops and Westminster  turn him loose every time he is sent  down, it would look as if they were  determined that he should have ample  opportunity to kill some one. If he  were sentenced to-morrow to another  four or eight year term in penitentiary  it is doubtful if more than a month  would be allowed to pass until some  fool petition would be in circulation  pleased to know that he is doing as  well'as can be'expected, and has every  confidence, -for ~ji: complete, ciixe,,^ He  underwent the-first operation ' about'a  fortnight ago, and expects another in  a few days more. He was about five  hours in the operating room, and what  made the ordeal all the more trying  was, the horrible hot spell which over-  swept the, east about that time  when the most, favorable conditions were required for re-cuperation.  Dr. Roe of Rochester, N." Y. whose  patient he is, stands in the opinion of  the medical profession, quite in a class  by himself in the surgical treatment  of such cases and Mr. Shatford has  every confidence in his skill, which is  in itself a great factor in aid of a suc-  cesful outcome.  Prof. Cooper, the blind phrenologist |  delivered a series of lectures on phrenology in the Union hall, concluding on  Wednesday night when he held forth  on the subject of "Love, Courtship, and  Marriage." On Sunday night he lectured on Voltaire as a phrenological  subject, and the evening previous on  pre-natal influence. He is a pleasing  speaker, thoroughly believes in his  subject, and makes out a very clear  case from the line of reasoning which  he takes. To those who will bring an  open mind to the subject he certainly provides food for thought and  honest.investigation even if he does  not succeed in convincing them.   The  i 11 ,  lecturer on phrenology now-a days-  is seriously handicapped from the  all too apparent fact that.it seems  to have lost ground rather than  gain headway during , the past  quarter of a century. The niedi  cal profession which perhaps should be  best qualified to pass judgment on  anything so closely concerning the  human animal as phrenology, always  pooh-poohed it, and eminent educationists to whom it ought to be of the  greatest use, have apparently ignored  it as an auxiliary although they have  pinned their faith., to psychology  which they have even placed on the  curriculum. These facts while damaging are by no means conclusive;  therefore most of us will continue to  he phrenplgical agnostics, neither  wholly believing, nor disbelieving,  with a tendency to admit that there  may be something' in it, and a hope  that, there is, for it is easy to see  where it could be made of benefit to  the human race, if true..

The Prince Rupert Empire says that  real estate in Prince Rupert is four  times higher than it should be.

Winnipegers keep pegging away on  the Selkirk Centennial project.  The suffragettes had a big row at  their conference in Seattle last week.
