He was driving the car and  had his chest crushed by the steering  wheel-, breaking several ribs and sustaining severe internal injuries. He  was taken to the hospital and it was  thought,that his recovery was possible, but unfortunately this hope was  dispelled, the patient sinking and passing away early on Thursday morning  ,.

Referring to the valley of  the Fraser in the vicinity of Tete  Jaime Cache, he says he cannot speak  too strongly of the immense probabilities as regards timber. He believes  there are easily 25 billion feet of spruce  cottonwood, cedar, fir, lurch, and balsam, besides a vast amount of cord-  wood and poplar which ,will be available for lumber, paper, pulp and wood  using industries. He promises that as  soon as this timber is removed every  effort will be used, to promote the development of industries which will  start up, and it is his intention to have  a special investigation .made by experts into the uses td'which this timber can be put.

He arrived in British  Columbia, in 16.06, and for a time was  associated with mining in Rossland.  In 1908 he received the appointment  of smelter superintendent at the B. C.  Copper Company's plant in Greenwood and ever since that time he has  been an active and trusted official of  that corporation up to the time of his  death.

LOOKING  FORWARD   FROM  1878  In a report of the general meeting  of the Bombay Gas Compan.y of thirty-  four years ago one of the participants,  who had shortly before, attended an,  exhibition of the electric light, stated  that thi.s light was not one ������������������which  any man could put about his house  and leave in the care of his servants.  There could be no store of electricity,  and the instant the engine ceased to  work from any cause or accident all  the lights would be gone." Another  attendant at the meeting "was quite  ready to admit that at some distant  day electric lighting might become  general; but it might be that at some  remote period men might fly. . . .  All these things might be possible, but  they were a long way olf." ���������Scientific  American.  ENTRANCE EXAMS.

THE BIBLE SOCIETY  Rev. J. Knox "Wright, District Secretary of the  B. C. Auxiliary of the  Canadian  Bible Society  which is an  Auxiliary of the British and Fereign  Bible Society,   visited Hedley and  on  Sunday evening preached on the work  of the Society.    It is unfortunate that  there was not a   better attendance for  the discourse delivered by the Rev. gentleman was mostinterestingandinstruc  tive and  could but not  impress  the  congregation  with the  importance of  the work which the society is carrying  on.     It is absolutely undenominational and  its object which  was set forth  at its organization  in  1801 has  been  faithfully adhered to ever since.   That  object was and is '"co print and distribute the scriptures without   note or  comment in all parts of the world and  in  all languages."   One  very  important  point   brought out  was that the  success of the society is bound up with  that of the mission schemes   of  the  churches,   and   in  order  to   maintain  the logical balance it is necessary that  the contribution towards the work of  the Bible Society should be at least $1  for every  .$10 given towards missions.  It would be useless for a contractor to  increase!  his    working  force   without  providing  sufficient   tools  and other  supplies   to   accommodate   the   extra  men employed.    The Bible Society being the commissariat of mission work  to keep up the   proper balance  therefore between the expansion in mission  work and the  expansion of the work  of  the Bible Society  it is absolutely  necessary   that  the support given to  the Bible  Society be $1 for every $10  given    for   missions.      Unfortunately  for..the  last two   years while   the support given   to the Bible  Society  has  only shown an increase of Hh per cent,  the  expansion   of missions   hits  been  nearly 10 per cent.  Three dead bodies have been found  on the (I. T. P. right-of-way between  Tete Jaime Cache andFitzlnigli.  THAT EDISON INVENTION  A. few -months auo, the Gazette published an article which was going the  rounds of the press with reference to  the successful completion of an invention by Edison which was to revolutionize mining by making available  low grade ores, now considered too low.  in value to be worked. The report appears 'now,-.'to have been premature as  will be seen from the following letter  appearing in the Mining and Scientific  Press;     ���������' " . ," ^ \.' ?��������� '���������'  Sir���������Referring to recent press comments concerning������rhomas A. Edison's  efforts in the lowgrade ore problems,  will you kindly state that he is not  working upon a solvent, as seems to  be the prevailing,impression. Over a  year ago my company interested Mr.  Edison in the question of an improvement in concentration, utilizing his  fine-grinding lolls as the basis for the  prevention of sliming. During the  past year considerable progress has  been made in making higher savings  from the finer, material, and', also in  the general treatment of complex ores,-  separating the lead, 'zinc, iron, and  copper by a system of concentration.  These experiments have been conducted in a large 100-ton unit in his  laboratory at Orange, but there is yet  considerable to be done before we will  feel justified in erecting a practical  plant.  Mr. Edison does not anticipate entering mining and milling; but by his  arrangement, if this improvement  works'to his satisfaction, my company  is to attempt to commercialize it by  erecting a large plant somewhere in  the West, so that a thorough demonstration of its practicability can be  make before offering the improvement  to the mining public. Mr. Edison has  made no claims whatever, as he is still  experimenting on the problem. What  I desire more to impress is that he is  not working upon a solvent; simply an  . improvement in concentration.  Henry B. Clifford  New York, June 10.  WILSON-TRAUB  ', A-very pretty wedding took place  on Wednesday evening, June 26th on  the lawn at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  E. M.

Napoleon indeed was a disturbing element in his day, and while he. lived  and was fine to"exercise his will upon  most of the nations of that time the  boundaries in Europe never knew stability. British Columbia, too, has in  Premier McBride a thorn in the side  of the map-maker : but unlike Napoleon whose genius lay in tearing down  the fabrics reared by statesmen who  had preceded him the map-disturbing  indulged in by British Columbia's  Premier proceeds from constructive  statesmanship.  The other day we  had occasion   to  consult, a recent  railroad map of this  province  and, getting one issued from  the office  of the chief geographer and  draughtsman at Ottawa  of only three  years ago, we were surprised on noticing how much   it had become, a piece  of ancient history   in  the platting  of  railroads    constructed   and  proposed  in this province,   To show bow recent  the map is meant to be   we may state  that it shows the brown line of the V.  V. & E. Hy.   completed   to  Princeton  and Abbotsford    and    projected    between those two points  by way of the  Tulameen, Otter,   Coldwater  and   the  Coquihalla rivers to Hope.   But again,  to show   how   ancient   it has become,  the blue line  representing the C. P. H.  is only shown as completed to Midway  and Nicola   while  its   projected  route  is marked out  by way of Rock Creek.  .Sidley Mountain, the lower Okanagan,  Fairview, White  Lake. Olalla,  Kerenieos, Hedley, One Mile Creek,  Quil-  chena, joining up at Nicola and out to  Spence's Bridge.    The red  line representing the G. T. P. shows completion  only to Kdson  in Alberta  with all the  rest between there and Prince Rupert  marked  as  projected.       In   vain   one  looked for the green line representing  the Canadian   Northern     but not   a  mile of their track is anywhere  to be  seen in the province, and yet owing to  the  vigorous   constructive   policy    of  Premier  McBride    that  toad  has already  expended    millions    in   British  Columbia   and  'ire  pushing  on   their  track  as fast as men   and  money  can  make it go,  while the ���������C P. R.   under  its subsidiary  corporation, the Kettle  Will the Provincial Secretary's office  please  cx'phiin   to   the  people of the  Similkaiueen  electoral district how it  comes  that an  auction ,sale of town  lots in  the government townsite   of,  Rock Creek in the Siniilkaiiieen riding,  is  advertised in   the Grand Forks Gazette,   published   in the   Grand   Forks  riding and  is  not  published   in   any  paper in the Siniilkaiiieen riding. Possibly the. Provincial Secretary or whatever person   in his office is responsible  for the sending out. of this advertising  is of the opinion   that there, is nobody  in the .Similkameen riding well enough  heeled  to  bid on any   town   lots  in  government town sites in   the.  riding:  and   yet if they   will  look  up the records of the sales  of government lots  offered   for. saie in   this riding  and in  other  pints: of the  province they will  lind that when the government lots in  the Hedley   townsite were  put on the  market   there .were,   bought   up and  paid for, more lots and at better prices  in that one day of,the sale  than were  bought under   similar   circumstances  in any other  part of the province.    It  is   rather a coincidence  too   that  the  advertiseuient  for   this   Rock   Creek  sale which   was to  take place on July  0th was dated at Victoria on June 18th  and  ran   between   that date and  the  date of the sale and during that period  they knew  that the  representative of  the Similkameen riding was out of the  province.    If the same ad. did not appear in the Victoria Week it wa^ulively an oversight on the part of someone  in the Provincial Secretary's office.

Mr., 0. Bergoust, who has been in  charge of the work done in this vicinity for the Water Branch of the Department of Lands, left on Monday  for his new camp at Bromley's, He  and his assistant, Mr. Mason, have  been investigating the claims of all  who are holding water rights on  streams in this vicinity and making a  report to the Department as to what  has been done in each case in the matter of constructing ditches or fiumus  to utilize the water they are claiming.  This information is for the use of the  ��������� commissioners who will shortly hold  special sittings through the district to  adjudicate upon the claims and apportion the water t'. those entitled by  law to the same.

We arc?  sure  that readers of the Gazette appreciated that fact in the two issues of  the paper that were under his charge  and  enjoyed   particularly   his   treatment of local mining  topics presented  to  them in   a light that does   not always praseut itself to one constantly  on the  ground who  has been describing   them   piece-meal   from   time   to  time.    The Gazette  predicts I'or him a  useful    and'   distinguished   career  in  either  field be  may choose and  only  hopes  he may stick   to his first love  and give to the mining industry of the  west  the benefit  of a pen  wielded   by  one who so well understands  the sub-  he may write about.
