JOHN JACKSON, Proprietor
Vernon, B. C, June 24.���Construction work on the Canadian Northern
raihvay branch line from Kamloops
to the Okanagan valley will be begun
next month and will be rushed toward
completion with every resource at the
company's  command.    Building    will
be begun simultaneously at three
points: Vernon, Armstrong and Kamloops.
From Vernon construction work will
proceed in four directions; from Vernon toward ; Armstrong,' toward Kelowna, toward Okanagan Landing and
up the White Valley toyvaid Luinby
and Shuswap Falls.
Announcement to this effect was
made when Watson W.Evans of Toronto, assistant solicitor of the Canadian Northern railway, was in this
city between trains to obtain the signature of Hon. Piic.e Ellison, minister
of finance, to the $0,110,000 guarantee
passed by the provincial legislature
during the last session.
Immediately after the signiture of
Mr." Ellison had been affixed to the
guarantee parchments, Mr. Evans telegraphed the fact to Sir William Mackenzie, president of the Canadian
Northern railway, Mr. Evans had been
apprised of the fact that on Monday
of this week Hon. W. T. White, Dominion minister of finance, has signed
the Domion Canadian Northern railway guarantee~"for $45,000,000.
Mr. Evans left Vernon on Tuesday
for Victoria,-.'where one copy of the
guarantees will be left in possession
of the provincial government, and he
planned then to start immediately for
Toronto.. On his arrival there the
parchments bearing Mr. Ellison'sTsig-
nature will be turned over to Sir William Mackenzie, who will immediately
depart for London to market the $50,-
000,000 worth of bonds made available
for sale by the provincial and Dominion guarantees.
The branch line from Kamloops to
the Okanagan valley.will be about 148
miles in length. From Kamloops to
Vernon the survey is SI miles long,
from Vernon to Kelowna 35 milas,
from Vernon to Okanagan landing
about four miles, from Vernon to
Luinby 17 miles and from Lumby to
Shuswap Ealls, 10 miles.
The last named 10-mile extension is
not included under the recent guarantee, but will be built to reach the
company's power site and townsite at
the falls, were electric power is to
be developed to operate the Lumby
and Kelowna lines and probably the;
line through to Kamloops.
Active development work on the
power site will probably not be begun
until next spring. It is the intention
of the company to rush the work in
every way in order to give employment to as many thousands of men as
possible and to take advantage of the
present low prices on  rails,  lumber,

Chester F. Lee, mining engineer
from Seattle, recently arrived in
Princeton and went up to inspect the

specimens have been taken out from
these placers. The leases are located
on the old south channel of Granite
Creek and the company', expects rich ]
.returns''when'.the bedrock is cleaned
up. The operating capitld for development is mostly from' ^Seattle. * The
British Columbia Platinum company
has also big holdings in the Tulameen
platinum belt and has started operations on a large scale.
Mr. Lambert, is expected to make a
cleanup shortly on his'-rich diggings
up Granite Creek. It.is"expected that
this season the production of gold and
'platinum 'from the Tuhimeen river and
its tributaries will lie greater than the
production of the last ten years combined.
The mineral wealth of the Similkameen and Tulanieen districts has not
been scratched, comparatively speaking, and the development work now
going on in the many: rich mining
camps in the district has'so far proved
that the mineral deposits, both alluvial and metalliferous, "are continuous
and licher as depth is gained.

'  Ottawa, June 21th���A specific denial
is given  in  government  circles   to a
story sent today to the Liberal press
that the  cabinet had decided to allow
the Hindus on the Komagata Main to
land  owing to  pressure from the British authorities.     Sir Robert Borden
is-out of  the  city,   but Hon.   Martin
Burrell  and   other   members   of   the
cabinet,   while not desiring in make a
statement  owinj* to  tlie fact that the
Premier, is  personally   handling   the
question,   denied the story in vigorous
language.    Officials of the department
of Immigration were equally emphatic
in declaring  that every possible effort
will be  made to prevent  the  Hindus
from  landing,   and   that   the  government will rigidly enforce  the regulations.
If the Hindus   succeed   in   getting
their case  before  the courts   and  so
forcing  the authorities  to allow them
to land,   it will not be through lack of
effort on   the part of the government;
From   the first the government has
taken the  stand that the immigration
regulations must be strictly enforced.
These  were the  instructions given to
Mr. Malcolm  Reid,   the  immigration
superintendent at  the coast,  and  he
has endeavored   to carry out  these instructions to the letter.
The government is fully aware of
the seriousness of the situation at the
coast,  and Premier Borden has been
in constant touch  with coast officials.
Mr. H. H,  Stevens,  M.P.. has kept
the government fully posted as to the
feeling  on the  coast.    Many protests
are being received from  British Columbia against allowing  the  Hindus
to land.    Today'came a strong protest
froiii  the  New Westminster Board of
Trade. .   ._... .  ..__.   ___.
An etfort is being made by Hon. G.
H. Perley to negotiate with tlie British authorities for a permanent solution of the question. However, this
will nob effect the present situation.
The whole story of today is described
as a midsnmininor pipe dream. l
Hon. W..T.' Bowser and Hon. W.Ross
will leave on  an extensive  tour of the
province at    the  beginning  of   July
with a view to ascertaining  the needs
and requirements connected with their ,
departments.    The  itinerary calls for
visits  to McBride,   Fort   Gem go, Fort
Fraser, Smitheis and Hazeltnn.    Various  centres   in   the   Kootenay   and
Boundary districts will also be visited.
��� At Nelson, Mr. Bowser will give special attention to  the  problem  of the
Doukobour settlement.    Some  misunderstanding has aiisen in   connection
with   the   eiifoicement of  the legislation of last  session, and  the minister
hopes to make it clear to all concerned
thai while, the government has no desire to impose any hardships it cannot
allow conditions to exist which amount
to an evasion of the laws   of the couri-
tiy.    The ministers will address public
meetings at the diffeient points visited,
staling the policy of the government
on   questions   bearing    upon  development of the province.

Tlie gold discovery of Thompson and
Merrick in the Coquihalla- valley has
attracted  many  prospectors and  upwards of thirty claims have been staked.     Parties are  leaving   Hope   now
with supplies and equipment,. Already
the district has drawn the attention of
the professional 'knocker.     The mining experts of the Vancouver Province says :     "Exaggerated reports are
being disseminated regarding the gold
in Coquihalla valley.     It is true that
small specimens of rich ore have been
obtained,    but the   gold   is   pockeby.
Vancouver wants no more repetition
of Steamboat Mountain."   The people
of Hope were not to  blame for the
Steamboat Mountain  fraud.     Ib was
engineered  by crooks from  Colorado
and crooks in Vancouver.     Its failure
argues nothing at all about the mineral possibilities of the Skagit Vtdley.
"The gold,  without exception,  is associated with  porphyry dykes.   The
great number and wide distribution of
these dykes make it a promising field
for prospecting," is  the official report.
���West Yale Review.
Vancouver, June 20th,���The immigration board of inquiry which held a
protracted session yesterday concluded
late in the afternoon and gave a decision ordering the deportation of Mun-
chi Singh. This Hindu is one of the
arrivals on the Komagata Mam. He
had only $20, when the regulations
call for new immigrants possessing
$200; ho did not come direct from the
land of his birth and he came in defiance of the order prohibiting the entry of artizans or laborers.
Formal habeas corpus proceedings
were then brought before Justice
Murphy. In the absence of any argument oi" other reason he immediately dismissed the appeal, and upheld
the decision of the immigration court.
Mr. J. E. Bird last evening went to
Victoria to enter the case for hearing
at the appeal court of British Columbia probably next Monday.
The different  legal  moves   perhaps
requite a little explanation.    The position is that  both sides  in  the Hindu
dispute wish to get the opinion of the
justices  of the  Court of Appeal.     If
the matter had been argued fully before Justice Murphy and in the event
of his decision  being in   favor of the
application   for   habeas   corpus   that
would have been the end of the matter, for the crown has no appeal from
the Supreme Court on habeas corpus.
In order to make sure that the matter
would go to the Appeal Court, counsel
on  both sides therefore agreed to accept a pro forma dismissal of the application   yesterday,  which paved the
way for the real hearing of the arguments before the Court of Appeal. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, JULY 2, 1914.  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

It did not  lait long, but its intensity gives some  idea of public sentiment inthis province, and i-' a suggestion of the oJVect  that would be produced if such an  order should be given. As the Imperial authorities have repeatedly declared that this is a question with which  they will not interfere, and as the  Borden ministry has from first to last  maintained the policy of exclusion, it  might have been assumed that the report of this sudden change of program  was untrue.  The trade returns of Canada for the  fiscal year ending with la������-t March  have now been made up and published  in detail. It was already known that  the total volume of trade was greater  than in any previous year. Imports  were $flH3,(KK),00'l. a decrease of -12.000. ���������  00IJ. fix ports were I70,0,)0,(il)0. a gain  of $80,000,000. The total trade was  $1,112,000,000, a gain of $41,000,000.  The excess of imports over exports  was $2S2.000.000 in the fi-cal year 1013,  and fell to $15J,00!UH)0 in 19M.  Exports from the mines increased  $1,000,000; fiom the fishesies, $1,300,-  090: of animal products, $S.o'.)0,0u"0;  agricultural products, $IS,000,000: manufactures. $13,SOO,000. Theie was a  decrease of some $000,000 in the value  of fore.-t pi oduce exported.  Canada still imports fi om the United  States mole than double the value of  the gooiN whii-h the United States  takes from Canada, and slill buys  from Great Britain not much mme  than half as much as Britain buys  fiom Canada.- Still ib is shown that  last year the United States bought  much more Canadian produce than  the year before. It is possible that  since the United states tariff has been  reduced =o that tho. average is more  nearly the Canadian level, trade between these coimtiies may fend towards equality.  CZ?

Dalton, Manager  MINES AND PROSPECTS  A PRESUMPTUOUS CLAIM  The London meeting of Hindus who  passed ii resolution complaining that  Canada is"deny ing the ordinary rights  of citizenship to the King's Indian  subjects;" was badly misinformed. Sir  Manoheriee Bhownagre, K. C, S. I.,  ought to know thab bhe ordinary righb.  of a British subject, whether Indian  or English, does not include the privilege of settling in any British country  without the consent of that community. The Hindus themselves are denying to the Canadian people the ordin  ary rights of British subjects when  they assert that Canadians have no  right to determine who shall settle in  their country. No other strangers,  -British or foreign, have questioned  this righb of the Canadian people, and  no peorjle shall ever be allowed to do  so successfully. ���������   -  Do these Hindu residents of London  suppose that Canada can be compelled  to admit as many millions or tens of  millions of "the King's Indian sul>  jeets" as choose to come here in bodies  of three or four hundred and demand  entrance in tho most peremptory fashion ? If the shipload now knocking ab  the door has this right, because they  are subjects of the king, then a Norwegian shipload of four hundred more  Hindus have the same rights. So ten  thousand other consignments1 can land  with the assurance that this country  is as much theirs as it is ours.  This doctrine is its own refutation.  It claims for the people of Bengal and  the Punjab the same rights as the Canadians to live in Canada and to control  the country. It denies Canadian self-  government. It usurps authority over  this country by men who have never  seen Canada, and have never had anything to do with the country. Any  person can convince himself of the  utter absurdity and unconstitutionality of such a claim by carrying it toward a logical conclusion.  There are many who invest in mining propositions who do not know the  difference between ;t mining prospect  and a developed mine. A developed  mine is a comniercial proposition, operating upon a commercial basis and  returning certain annual premiums.  In mines of this class the. element of  speculation is past, also the element of  chance for large let urns. 1 he investor in tbt! developed or developing  mine is in the class thab may hope for  large ret urns; J>ut theie must always  he associated an element of chance.  If, after proper investment of" the  funds and careful and competent management, the project fails to develop,  theie should he no complaint on the  part of the investors, for they would  have willingly and gladly accepted  any  returns  no  matter  how lar������rc.���������  ti."

Of all the articles  on the shelves, how many were on your  shopping list five years ago? Make it ten  years, and you will find that most of the  things you buy to-day���������and could not do  without-���������were not even made then.  You men and ���������women who buy  things, let this sink in. You are  better men and women because of  advertising. You eat more wholesome food. You wear better clothes.  Your home is better furnished. You  have cleaner and more sanitary  houses. You read better books and  magazines. You seek more healthful amusements.  Your whole standard of living has  been raised ��������� and why? Because  the men who make these better  things are telling you that you will  be more comfortable, happier and  healthier if you use these higher  grade goods.  It is advertising that makes it  possible for you to buy "the best"  right at your corner store. It is  advertising that encourages the  inventor to make new comforts and  new utilities and enables you to buy  them almost immediately after they  are perfected.  J. J. Hill says this "high living"  costs more. True for J. J.���������but  it is worth more. And leaving the  cost aside, do you want to go back  to buying jam out of a pail, oatmeal  out of a barrel, raisins out of sticky  boxes, or tea exposed in an open  chest?
