After reading and disposal of minutes  the auditors' report was presented  and showed balance on hand of $70.55.  The principal matter of business  dealt with was that of procuring quarters for the Board, and the committee  appointed at a previous meeting reported in favor of the rooms formerly  occupied by H. ....Wright as a shoe  shop.  Ways and means were discussed for  securing maps of the camp and displaying ores.  The question of street lighting was  also considered and the president and  John Love were appointed a committee to wait upon the manager of the  Dalv Reduction Co. and learn the cost.

Carpenters are beginning work on  the station. The Delniar station is  Hearing completion.  The rails could have been in at the  end of last week but the boss wisely  decided to finish up everything as he  went along and not run the risk of  having to finish with a booze-shattered crew, which was likely to happen  when the men got in reach of liquor.  Ballasting is kept up close after the  steel. The trains are still running on  falsework over the Armstrong bridge  but the timber is in readiness for the  spans and a week or so will suffice to  complete and have the whole section  from Chepaco to Keremeos ready for  inspection.  The Canadian Gazette, a paper published in London for the last 48 years,  has the following synopsis of British  Columbia's claim against the Dominion  government for better terms. The  mission of the Gazette is to keep the  British people posted on Canadian affairs. Here is what it says concerning  McBride's mission to England; and the  result thereof:  British Columbia may well feel satisfied with the result of the mission to  England of her Prime Minister. It  has its sequel in Mr. Winston Churchill's statement in the House of Commons last Thursday and in thebill for  the readjustment of Federal subsidies  to the" Canadian provinces which is  now before the British Parliament.  We may indeed expect that this Imperial legislation will mark the beginning of the end of a difficulty between  the Dominion and the Province which  has been the subject of keen political  feeling. It was the supreme issue in  the recent general election in British  Columbia, when Mr. McBride was returned to power by a largely increased  majority.  The main facts of the situation can  be stated in a few sentences. At the  1906 Conference of Provincial Premiers  held at Ottawa the Dominion Government assented to a readjustment of  the allowances made to the provinces  out of the Federal treasury in view of  the heavy demands of the various services of administration���������roads, streets  and bridges, education, administration  of justice, hospitals, charities, and so  on. The scheme, as agreed upon between the Dominion and Provincial  governments (British Columbia alone  The  Diggings in the Similkameen and  Kettle River Basins.  Leaving the Thompson and the Fra-  ser and going to the neighborhood of  Vermillion forks on the south Similkameen I find that gold mining was extensively carried on for several years,  though never employing a great number of miners.  The gold from this   portion   of the  Similkameen was generally found in  coarse scales and was mixed with a  considerable percentage  of  platinum  in particles of similar size.    The gravels  hold   numerous   coarse pebbles,  large stones and even bowlders. .These  rocks have been   disintegrated from  the rocks in place in the mountains,  and are probably for the most part of  the   Cretaceous  date.    It is   inferred  that the source  of the stones of the  gravel should be that of the gold, and  the   evidence "supports   the   theory,  namely, that .they  are  deriveil from  the typical slaty and associated rocks.  The Tulameen, which  is really the  North fork of the Similkameen, as a  whole has never afforded employment  to a large number of owners, but the  tributary creeks have been   the scene  of some excitement, especially Granite  creek, which in the middle 80s for two  years at  least   gave; employment   to  placer miners, variously estimated at  from 1,200 to 3,000 men.<  It is not generally known, yet it is  an official fjact, that Twenty Mile  creek at the mouth of which is Hedley city,, was in the early 60s worked  for some, time by placer miners with  some profitable results. The present  inhabitants   know   nothing of these  1  DOLLAR SURPLUS  That is  the  Balance Which  Finance Minister Tatlow  ..:'.:   Will   be   Able   to  Show  tor  FISCAL YEAR 'ENDING JUNE. 30T11  British Columbia's Record Year ��������� The  Administration Justifies Confidence of  Electorate���������Development of Natural  Resources Worked the Trick.

Bahxf.s. Prop.  I'knticto.v, B.C.  The Gazette was present one day  last week when Robt. Stevenson and  Tom Elliott, two old-timers met in the  Hotel Similkameen. Fighteen years  bad elapsed since they had last seen  each other. The recognition was mutual, showing that both have good  memories for old faces, and in very  brief space after the recognition they  were busy on mutual reminiscences.  Among other instances 'recalled, it  was brought out that the first load of  goods taken into Camp McKinney Avas  packed in for Elliott by Stevenson,  who took them in by pack train oyer  the Hope trail at a cost of seyen cents  a pound. Elliott was McKinney's pioneer merchant, and in those days,  Robt. Stevenson was ready for any  stunt that would lubricate the wheel's  of commerce, from a piece of hydraulic engineering to supplying a pack  train for the transportation of supplies  into any interior camp, no matter how  remote or inaccessible. At that stage  of the country's progress the lives of  the pioneers were indeed strenuous,  but judging from some of the reminiscences exchanged the strenuousness  wasn't without its frolic, and a spirit  of lion nuuaraderir prevailed.  dissenting), and now embodied in the  bill before, the Imperial Parliament,  giants increases in the specific and per  capita. Federal subsidies to the provinces amounting in all to .$2,372,000, distributed as follows :���������  Ontario ... $ 789,481  Quebec  599,865  Nova Scotia  177,659  New Brunswick  130,000  Manitoba  130,000  Prince Edward Island  70,000  Alberta  130,000  Saskatchewan  130,000  British Columbia  215,000  (Of this $215,000 to British Columbia  $100,000 is a. special annual grant made  to British Columbia for 10 years on  account of her exceptional claims.)  As we say. each of the provinces was  a consenting party to this arrangement except alone British Columbia.  At Ottawa Mr.'McBride stoutly maintained���������and the principle of his contention found general support���������that  the exceptional demands made upon  his province called i'or exceptionally  favorable treatment. Thus he urged  that "the charges against the province  through custom and excise revenues.  early diggings, but there is some local  information to the effect that placer  mining was in operation along different parts of the creek from its mouth  where Hedley city now is up the creek  for several miles, and that the gold  found was coarse and of the the size of  peas.  But few evidences of the early workings are now in sight. Twenty mile  in the early summer is a torrential  stream, and the work of the early  placer miners would soon be obliterated by rock disintegration and the action of water constantly passing along  the bed of the creek.  About a mile from the mouth of  Rock Creek after the stampede in 1862  as much as $100 per day was taken  out some distance above the mouth of  the creek, but this wits exceptional.  The general yield, was from 1 to 2  ounces during the best times. It is  officially stated that the best paying  ground in that neighborhood was  where the creek crossed a. belt of soft  slate rock.  Gold was found in small quantities  on several streams flowing into the  Okanagan valley. The most important occurrence was on Mission creek  about 7 miles from the mouth of the  stream where it is found merging from  a narrow gorge in a wide valley. The  pay streak was a good one while it  lasted. The paystreak was about half  a mile below the gorge. The yield  was about 2A ounces per   day   to   the  Victoria. July 4.���������Tho McBride government will be able to announce to  the people of British Columbia a surplus of .$1,000,000, the greatest surplus  of any which the Conservatives have  been able to pile up on the deficits of  previous governments.  The fiscal year ended on June 30th  and the returns -'made to Hon. R. G.  Tatlow, minister of finance and acting  premier since that date, show that the  record-breaking mark of $1,000,000  will be reached when the balance for  the year 1906T07 is struck.  This splendid showing reflects unbounded credit upon the adininistra- .  tion of the finances of the province by  ���������Hon. Mr. Tatlow. As is well known  when he took hold of the finances, the  treasury Was not only empty but obligations contracted by previous governments had to be met in order to save  the credit of British Columbia. Not  only was the situation saved at that  time but the internal affairs - of the  province, were henceforth so skilfully  handled that annual surplus have been  resulting ever since.  One factor in the situation which  has enabled the production of the million dollar surplus has been the immense development of the natural resources of the province under the  present administration. The vast timber areas of the province dining the  past fiscal year produced over $800,000  in revenue and the receipts from that  source will next year run greatly in  excess of the million mark.

On the McDougall  claim, worked in the early days, the  pay dirt was about 3 feet thick and it  had to be stripped of S feet of useless  gravel. The gold was coarse and easily caught in the ritTles.  Tlie richest deposits of Mission creek  were doubtless worked out  long ago,  to which may properly be added heavy but it is not impossible to work some  freight bills, arising out of long dis- of the. deposits again with profitable  tunce from centres of supply in the | results.

Moreover, "the responsibilities of population involved in the increase of  population in British Columbia, as will  be shown, are several times greater  than elsewhere in Canada, by reason of  a combination of disadvantageous conditions, mainly physical in their nature. The contentions that increased  subsidies to the provinces to permit of  their still further development would  bring increased revenues to the Dominion as a compensation apply with j which  peculiar force to the particular case of  British Columbia. This province has.  aduiittedlv.  great sources of   wealth.  Sergeant Wilson of the N.W. M. P.,  who w.is head of the party who captured the. Mission train robbers about  a year ago, when 011 the coast this  week paid his respects to the trio at  New Westminster, says the Revelstoke  Mail-Herald. Old Bill gave him a cordial reception. He stated that he. was  being well treated, and added with a  j laugh that he had no outside engagements at present.  The ex-desperado is apparently resigned to his fate, and has added to his  weight since his conviction. The old  fellow is employed in the. prison brick  yard. As a souvenir of the fateful experience last year he requested Sergt.  Wilson to accept his Luger rifle, and  before saying good-bye wrote an order  for its delivery. The weapon is now  in the possession of a rancher friend of  Miner in the Okanagan district.  "Guess I will sign this 'Edwards',"  isaid Miner as he wrote the order.  That was the name he was known under in the upper country.  "Shorty" Dunn, who was also given  a life sentence, did not greet the officer  so cordially. He is a member of a carpenter gang engaged in constructing a  new prison wing. The other train  robber. Colquhoun, was found engaged  at work in one of the shops.

It is not known  where his future field will be.  A telegram was received from Dr.  AVhillans in Toronto on Monday which  bore the sad news that his baby boy,  little Jack had died on Friday last,  and would be buried ,011 Monday.  The doctor did not reach the city until Sunday. He expects to return in  two weeks.  Judge Moore of Spokane, a. -mining  man, spent a while in Camp Hedley  on his way back from Copper Mountain, and was very favorably impressed with what he saw. He expects to  make another trip here shortly when  he will have, more time at his disposal  to get about and see all the. claims of  merit in this camp.  The hill which marked the eastern  entrance to Hedley has almost disappeared, and the road no . longer goes  between the mill and the ware-house,  but follows a four and a half per  cent grade from the east end of the  the bridge over Twenty-mile to the  top of the bench south-west of the  Daly Reduction Co.'s office, A. Pleasant had the job from the Company of  making the change, and henceforth in  his wood-hauling contracts with the  Company his teams will be spared the  heavy pull which marked the end of  each trip during  the  past year.  Rover has changed the days of running on his liedley-Oroville stage line.  Tho stage formerly came in on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, returning next days, it will now come in on  Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays so  as1 to make closer connection with  Revely's tri-weekly stage from Hedley  to Princeton, "While the old arrangement was very convenient for Hedley  and Kerenieos giving us a daily stage  between these points instead of two  stages on alternate days as under the  present time cards, the'convenience of  passengers going through from the  South to the Nicola country will be  promoted.  L. AV. Shatford, M. P. P., returned  on Saturday last from points up the  river. During the trip he visited  Princeton, Granite Creek, Otter Flat  and the settlements on One and Five  Mile (.'recks. Mrs Shatford took advantage of the trip to visit friends on  Five. Mile creek, with whom she. remained while Mr. Shatford was at  Princeton, Granite Creek and Otter  Flat. By going over the ground personally besides meeting with the residents, he obtained a. good idea of what  was required in the matter of road improvements, and will no doubt confer  with the road supervisor to ensure  that no portion will be over-looked.  When in Princeton he met several  prospectors who are well acquainted  with the Roche river country, and his  conference with them and with business men in Princeton will doubtless  result in improvement being done on  the trails in that section.

Mr. Becker and his wife drove from  Vernon to Keremeos.   ���������  Rev. Mr. Cameron before closing his  service,, here on Sundav evening referred to the question of ���������������������������church--accommodation. He asked the citizens  to think about it.  Instrumental music in the- Sabbath  services is appreciated by the people  of Keremeos.  Another little angel passed St. Peter's gate on Sunday and she is now a  citizen of Keremeos and a member, of  the household of Mr. and Mrs. Frank  Richter.  C.

A COMPLIMENTARY  INDICTMENT.  Tlie Princeton Star accuses   the   On- ,  y.ette of   prevarication   and   of   much'  else that is mean and  bad,   because a. j  paragraph appeared in these  columns i  copied from other, papers   and   duly i  credited to same, concerning  the  methods of Smith  Curtis    in  mixing  up  land  speculation  with   political  campaigning; but there is .no  word of reproof for the Greenwood Ledge or the  ���������Victoria'Week  in  which papers  the  paragraph appeared before it was1 published in the Gazette.    The paragraph  is scarcely one   which  called  for  con- >  denmation inasmuch as the Greenwood \  Ledge, whose editor wrote  it,   merely;  told in short, terse  language  what he j  heard coming   out   in   evidence   in  a. i  Greenwood court-room, drawing a les-1  son   therefrom, and surely anything a '���������  reporter hears in the witness-box,   he j  is at liberty to reproduce   in   his   col- i  uiims,   unless perhaps it should   be  in  connection with some  unsavory  case i  of an offence   against   public  morals,;  which   this land case was not.    The;  Gazette doesn't wish  to  be  unfair to:  the Star and intimate  that   it would  wilfully hand out such  wholesale denunciation of the Gazette for copying  an apparently proper  paragraph  and  have, no word  of disapproval  of the  course  pursued   by  the papers  from  which the very proper paragraph   was  copied, and to which  it was credited.  On the contiary the Gazette would  in  the spirit of broad charity, like to hunt  about for some excuse to offer and has  discovered one that should serve.    The  appearance of said  paragraph  in   the  Ledge  and   Week   was  probably  co-  teinporaneous with a certain  sombre- i  lined optic in the Star office; but as we i  don't want to give the Star away  too  badly,    Princetonians    will   probably  understand and be able   to apply  the  excuse without   further   elucidation.  There is one   other   observation  that  the incident calls up, and it is this.   If  this lie the only peg  upon  which   the I  Star can hang an  indictment of  the!  Gazette for prevarication   and  other |  bad  things,   what a  testimonial   this i  is   to   come   from   one's critics.      To j  think of it should be enough to pro- j  duce in   us an  unctuous  rectitude at J  which   even   the   goody-goodness   of  Caesar's wife would   turn   pale.

Investment  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������-the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects. It is the mining and business  centre of the '  Similkameen  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway; and with the advent of this' road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important'city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...

SHATFORD,  Secretary and flanager,  CoVLtd.  HEDLEY, B.C.  POSTING THE BRITISH  PUBLIC  Continued from l'aeo One  Obviously, however, owing to the physical obstacles to overcome, to make  these sources available by development  an expenditure very much larger than  in other provinces is required : but, as  British Columbia has in the. past contributed, and in the future must continue in contiibute, in an excessive  ratio to the Federal treasury, as compared with the rest of Canada,, so the  Dominion for relatively increased subsidies to this province will reap a corresponding increase in revenue to the  treasury and in benefits to trade, and  industry." So ran a part of the contention of British Columbia. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues in the  Dominion  Cabinet were not lire pared  of view as against the Provincial point  of view," and he added :  "Such a deduction would be of too  sweeping a character. The question  we have to ask ourselyes is, Do the  constitutional amendments which are  now demanded, do they command the  support of the great majority of the.  people of Canada? And about that I  think there can he no doubt whatever.  The Federal Government, in which  British Columbia is represented, has  before expressed its opinion, and  all the provinces are in favor of the  arrangement embodied in this bill with  the exception of one of the smallest  provinces. Five millions of the population of Canada are represented in  support of the measure, as against  170,000, the population of British Columbia. We have therefore decided  that we shall introduce a bill to give  effect to the wishes of the great majority of the Canadian people. Several  Canadian statesmen who have been in  this country have urged very strongly  upon us the importance of proceeding  with this legislation. The Prime Minister of Quebec, also Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. Fielding, the Finance  Minister of the Dominion, all have  made personal application to my noble  friend Lord Elgin or to myself upon  this question."

Canada, it was suggested, being  mistress of her own revenues, could  dispose of them us she pleased. But  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues,  desiring as far as possible to give finality to the readjustment and to relieve  Canada from further provincial demands, decided to have recourse to  Imperial legislation, and with this end  in view the resolutions of the Dominion Parliament declared the readjustment to be "final and unalterable."
