'���������  Office  on North   Main   Street.  P. W. GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER AND BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building- Princeton  Dominion Day was .right .royally  celebrated in the valley by the sports  held in Princeton, and for a wonder,  the rain which had heen so persistent'  for a fortnight before, very obligingly  lot lip and the weather was ideal on  the first day without even the disquietude of a threatened shower. The  train from the south which was on  time had a good representation from  Oroville and Keremeos and received a  stiong reinforcement of Hedley holi-  dayers on pleasure bent. Those who  went up were expecting that the train  would lie held until 1 o'clock in the  evening of the first day. of the sports,  but in this they were fooled as somebody with a pull somewhere had managed to get the thing arranged otherwise and they were forced to stay over  night or turn around and come back  by the regular train.  _  The principal features of the first  day were the lacrosse match between  Hope and Kerenieos and the baseball,  match between Hedley and Copper  Mountain. The lacrosse match w;is a  walk-over for Hope which was-heavily  recruited from AVestminster and a  score of something like IS to 2 re  salted.  In the baseball game between Hedley and Copper Mountain was demonstrated the fact that it was Hedley's  day oft". The Copper Alouiitain team  had been very much strengthened  and Hedley had several raw spots on  the team resulting from taking on  men who had not practised their position. Early in the game Billy Oorii-  gan, who was counted on to do most  of the pitching for Hedley, had his  pitching arm struck with a pitched  ball and was out of the game. His  place was taken by Prior who pitched  very well;hue had not practised and  could not stand the pace. The Hedley  infield was weak with the exception  of third base which was snappily  played by Harper, and in batting the  team was not as effective with the  stick as they generally are, and this  part of the falldown was not helped  very much by some more wierd instances of Alessenger's gruesome suicidal base-running. The score was 23  to 13 with Hedley on the short end.  Next morning Copper Mountain beat  a combined team of Coalmont and  Tulameen.  In the rock-drilling foiir teams competed and Hedley captured both  prizes. ' The team that got first money  was S. E. Hamilton and Fred* Lyon,  while Yorky and J. Beam got second.  The boulder was the hardest that any.  of the drillers had ever struck, which  accounts for the shorter depth of the  holes drilled. The winners made 29  9-16 inches, the second team 20 3-16, a  Copper Mountain team 25 inches and  a Nickel Plate team 21 inches.  FIND BODY OF JOE  FLEISCHER  In Similkameen River Near Keremeos���������  He Undoubtedly Fell off G. N.  Bridge  Near    Hedley  INDIAN GUILTY OF MURDER  New Westminster   Jury   Convicts   Paul  Spintlum Upon His Second Trial  w The body of Joe Fletcher, whose  real name was Joki Fleischer, was  I found last Sunday morning stranded  on a bar in the Siniilkaiiieen river at  Webster's Ferrv, three miles north of  Keremeos. . Constable AIcGuffie was  notified of the discovery, and took the  body to Keremeos, where it was identified. The coroner, Dr. McEwen of  Hedley, was called, and held an inquest Sunday afternoon, at'which it  was found that Fleischer met his death  by falling off a bridge into the river.  There was a large bruise on the head,  but no other marks on the body, which  was badly decomposed. In a vest  pocket was found a roll of bills totalling $18, and a postal note payable to  a relative in Budapest, Austria, so  that it is evident that robbery was not  a motive.  It seems probable that Fleischer met  his death by cither accidentally falling, or. jumping with suicidal intent,'  from the high Great Northern trestle  over 20-Alile creek. He had not time  enough after he was seen to leave the  station, to reach the bridge over the  Similkameen river before the arrival  of the train. He was not seen on or  near the trestle by the train' crew.  The two suitcases left at the station  by Fleischer were opened Sunday  evening by the coroner, but no evidence was found in them which furnished a clew to his motives. One  suitcase contained old clothing, and in  the other were a few carpenter's tools.  Fleischer was a native of Budapest,  Austria, and was about -15 years old.  Little is known about his relatives,  and the name of the person to whom  the postal note was addressed was illegible. He will be buried in Keremeos  by the members of Hedley Miners'  ���������Union.  BRITISH HOSPITALS  Sir William Osier Says they are  Hope-  ��������� ��������� lessly Behind the Times  Vancouver, B. O, June 27.���������Paul  Spintlum, the Indian, was found  guilty at New AVestminster assizes today of the murder of Provincial Constable Kindness, near Clinton, on May  '3, l-S-12. This is the second time that  the Indian has been placed on trial for  his life. He was sentenced to be  hanged on September 12. At the previous trial of Spintlum and his companion, Aloses Paul, another Indian,  at Vernon, the jury disagreed. Paul  will now be tried as an accessory to  the crime.  Both men had been arrested for  murder in 1911 and broke jail at the  beginning of 1912. Near to the place  where they were in hiding a Chinaman was found butchered, the weapon  being a hatchet. The trail was followed up eventually to their hiding  place and when about to effect their  arrest Spiiitlum and Paul took refuge  behind a log, from which the formei  fired.on Kindness, killing him on the  spot. For many months they were  outlawed and it was only at the threat  of the provincial government to dispossess the chiefs of the tribes who  were harboring the criminals of their  titles and dignities that they were delivered up to justice. Spintlum maintained his stoical demeanor throughout the entire trial and made no remarks when the capital sentence was  passed in due form.

Sir AVilliam was  contrasting the methods of American  and colonial hospitals with those of  England, and said there was a striking contrast between the American  and British hospitals. In fact, in England everything was done for the poor  and nothing for the rich, who were  the most neglected people in the country.

The rich  lands of British Columbia's great northern hinterland were to play a prominent pait in his schemes.  Ci omarty Sutherland-Leveson-Gow-  er, fourth Duke of Sutherland, horn  July 20th, 1851, was, with the exception of the Emperor of Russia, the  largest land holder in Europe. His  estate embraced nearly 1,500,000 acres.  He owned 30,000 acres in Staffordshire and Shropshire and much landed  property in other countries. He was  noted as a spoitsman and a fine  yachtsman. His yachts included the '  Catani and Lizelte. In 1881'he mar-  lied Lady Millicent Fanny St. Clair  Erskine, daughter of the fourth Earl  of Rosslyn, two sons and one daughter being the result of the union. In  recent'years the Duke lias heen deeply interested in a colonization scheme  for.western Canada, and to tliat end  has purchased vast tracts of terri-  toi y.

With  reserves on Alarch 31 amounting to  about 156,000,000 bushels and a new  winter crop coining in about the 1st  of July which promises to greatly  exceed that of a year ago, the United  States is a huge exporter yet. With  her new irrigation methods there are  large wheat areas yet untouched.  There is promise that she will he a  large exporter for many years to come.  And, two years ago, the Globe was  the loudest in its shouts to the Canadian wheat grower to vote for Reciprocity and the big market for Canadian wheat which was opening up in  the United States.  To keep up with the demand, the  West Kootenay Power company is  arranging for the installation of an  additional unit of S,000 horse power  at Upper Bonnington. The company  now has 2-1,000 horse power in operation, distributed between Upper and  Lower Bonnington and Cascade, and  the plant at the upper 'Falls is to  have Niir/Vher S,000.

No one  was injured. The Canadian Pacific  police.are hunting for the marksman.  Two cars of silver lead ore, running  $50 a ton, have just been shipped from  the Sunnyside, at Rock Creek, by E.

The Vancouver Chamber of Alines  has set up an exhibit of Provincial  minerals in its new headquarters and  will sho%v collections from nearly  every mining camp in the Province.-  A shaft is being sunk on the coal  property of the Midway Coal Co., at  Midway, and they report the finding  of some very good grade coal.  Rossland has produced a total of  $55,577,452, according to the Rossland  Miner, and is still producing at the  rate of $2,700,000 a year.        ,  The annual  report of the: New Dominion  Copper Co.  shows a profit for.  the past fiscal year of $116,949, as compared with a deficit  of more than $11,  000 for the year before. ���������-.-...

The Gran by Company is building  some 62 miles of trails connecting their  different groups of mining claims at  Gran by Bay.  A freight rate of $11 per ton is quoted on ore shipped from New Hazelton  to the Trail smelter.

In fact, Sir. John-A.- Macdnnald, far-  seeing statesman as he was, builded  even better than he knew when In-  tied up with the men who risked their  fortunes in the gigantic scheme of  giving Canada a railway from ocean  to ocean; and any aid which he and  his parliament were able to give at  critical periods to help it through, was  bread sown on the waters, which is  since coming back'in countless ways,  and this latest manifestation in the  expenditure- of $100,000 in the extension and improvement of'thoir system  in the west at this particular time is  b it another magnificent instance of  the policy they have seen fit to pursue and the national sentiment which  has inspired it. To do the right  thing at the right time is a happy  faculty that i-i unfortunately nut  possessed:by all, andaieither are all in  a position to do it, but it is fortunate  for all that those who aie in a position  to do so, have the will to do so.  TIMELY AID  The confirmation by Sir Thomas  Shatighnessy of the intention of the  C. P. R. to expend $190,000,000 in the  ��������� extension of its lines and perfection of  its systc-m in the west, comes at the  present time ;is a piece of very welcome news indeed, and furnishes moreover, ample opportunity 'for the people of Canada to. review the situation  and examine into the relations which  subsist between the Dominion of Canada and this great corporation. When  the evidences of a world wide trade  depression which is now coming on  are to be seen on all sides and'the  money situation is becoming all the  while tighter, the announcement of a  gigantic expenditure of this kind,' and  at-this particular time, appears like a-  veritable rift in the clouds before the  storm has had time to break.  AVe  have all  heard  the   C.  P.   R.'  damned for one thing aiid another and  most or us may have done a bit of it  ourselves  at times when    we   didn't  happen  to  think   that    tilings    were  coining sufficiently our way; but nevertheless where is  there  another corporation that has so thoroughly identified itself with   the  interests   of   a  country as this mammoth railway and  steamboat company has done?   Neither is this the first instance when Brit-  ,   ish  Columbians  in   various   districts  and at various times, have seen infant  industries nursed along   by the  company in a way that was-truly paternal,  and it does not detract from the situation in the slightest where  it  may be  seen that in doing so they were  merely building up profitable  business for  themselves in the years to follow.     It  is now twenty years since they placed  a steamer  on   Okanagan   Lake    that  was far beyond tho capacity required  at that  time,   and  many  a lean   trip  was made   before  there   was  business  enough  to  justify   the.    expenditure.  Any settler on the shore of Okanagan  Lake had only to moor a log or two at  the shore to serve as a, wharf and display a white flag %vhen he wanted  the  boat to call, and he and his little bit of  produce   or   belongings    was    taken  aboard.    The mining industry in   the  Boundary was fostered along the same  way, and when it was a matter of life  or death to mine owners to determine  whether the low grade ores  of   the  Boundary could  be  made  to  yield  a  profit, the C. P. R. did their  part to  help out the situation by giving a rate  The agitation being kept up in Vancouver by certain interested agitators  to l'oice the British Columbia government to give to the City of'Vaiieouver  a   valuable  piece  of property  in   the  centie of the city is  being  taken  due  note by those dwelling in other towns  and cities through the province.    The  property in question is the  old  com t  house site. m\   Hastings  St.   which  is  estimated to be  easily  worth   over a  million  dollars.      This  would  be   an  able-bodied  gift  indeed  for- the   provincial govern merit' to  hand  over  to  any one city, hut'it  would  require  a  heap    of explanation   to   satisfy    the  rest of the province why it should be  that one place should   be  handed  out  a gift of that or any magnitude that is  not extended in like manner to other  portions; besides,-it was never, considered good fonn for the   recipient,   or  would-be recipient; of a gift1 to suggest  to the donor of what the gift shall  consist.   Tlie object of the agitation  is  too apparent to deceive  anybody,  and  we  think  there are  a  sufficient  number'of fair-minded people in Van-:  couver to see through the game.    The  occasion'should be one for- the  exercise of a little civic- pride which should  preclude anything���������' so  humiliatihg :is  tlie assumption, .of the position of "men-;  dicant.   The  government owns   land  in agood many towns throughout the  province, and'how-will it lie if all of  them begin holding-oiit the big mitt  and specifying the character and magnitude of, the gift which they want?  sponsibilily is assumed by tlie Attorney-general's department in allowing  any iiinre'"'iiiurder cases to be tried in  A7ernoii, and especially should there,  be thivgreatest: possible caie that lii'i  changes of venue from other assizes to  Vernon should be. given to counsel for  defence w.ho are determined to get  their clients off. Objections to certain  jurors who might be. suspected of prejudice against the prisoner is a pi ivi-  lege of whioh'connsel for defence are  never backward in availing' themselves. It might be well if counsel for  the. prosecution were equally solicitous  for the inteiests of'justice and see that  no man is allowed on a jury who is a  faddist on'tho subject of capital'pim-  ishinent and who will express disbelief  in capital punishment at all. One  such juror is said to have had a-place  omthe. jury'which disagreed in Vernon  when the Paul Spintlum'. case was  tried there. There were some other  dissentients on that juiy who were  creditedwith other reasons for taking  the stand which they did; and if those  alleged reasons be true and. are atall  likely to obtain again, then the system  of trial by jury would indeed appear  co have outlived its usefulness.  &~  METEOROLOGICAL.  77 Years in Business.

The   conviction and sentence of trie  Indian,  Paul  Spintlum, at the assizes  held in  AVestminster last  week,   emphasizes  the fact frequently pointed  out by this  paper  that the frequent  miscarriages of justice tliat have been  witnessed in Vernon for which Vernon  juries  are responsible,   make  it   very  questionable  whether  it is  proper  to  trust  them  with any more cases in  which offenders who are charged with  capita), crimes are concerned. The trial  in Westminster was to all intents and  purposes a mere rehash of the evidence  that was given in  Vernon,  and  it is  also said that the summing up made  by Justice Morrison  in  AVestminster-  for the guidance of the jury was no  more pointed  nor   conclusive  that a  verdict for  conviction*(Wiuld  follow  than that made by Justice Hunter in  Vernon.     The Gazette has conversed  with men   who heard all   the evidence  on this case in Vernon.   Some of them  were  men  who arc familiar with the  taking of evidence and able   to weigh  it properly and give  it its due place in  both civil and criminal cases, and surprise was expressed by them that men  who are supposed to  he possessed of  sufficient intelligence to serve on jury  cases could have given such a verdict  in the face of the  evidence placed before them and so admirably summed  up by the presiding Justice.

' The body was taken  to Fairview, where an autopsy was  performed, and it was found that his  neck was broken. The case is peculiar,  in the fact that afatal injury should  result from so slight a cause, without  any suspicion on the part of the victim of the nature of his hurt.  The Dnke of Sutherland, who was  the largest land holder in Europe,  died last week.  Arancouver experienced the most  severe thunder storm in its history  last week, when rain fell so fast that  Hastings St. was converted into a  river, that ran knee deep, and swift  enough to carry away bicycles.

Tom Bradshaw was in Hedley a few  days last week.  Harold Townsend leturned to Hedley last Friday, from Spokane.  Hedley was well represented at the  Princeton celebration thi.s week.  Alax Wilson was in Hedley last  week, looking into his business interests here.  Air. Mclntyre returned to Merritt in  his auto, passing through Hedley on  Sunday evening.  . Fred OJillespie went to Princeton on  Saturday. He will stay over to take  in the celebration.  Dr. AIcEwen made a trip to Keremeos Sunday to act as coroner in,the  case of Joe Fletcher.  Oroville will celebrate the 4th' of  July with a big programme of sports  extended over two days.  Alany Indians are to be seen passing  up the valley towards Princeton with  their horses, to take part in the races.  Airs. Tha-i.n arrived in Hedley on  Alonday to spend a portion of her holidays here. She is the guest of Airs.  G. P. Jones.  Dr. Jermyn V.S. who  is   veterinary,  inspector at Osoyoos went np the valley on Monday and expected to take  " in^the races at Princeton.  I. L, Merrill, President of the Hedley Gold Mining Co., who has been on  a trip to Europe, returned to his home  in Camden, Maine, last week.  AV. TAShatford, who completed his  tour of South America, is now in the  British Isles, and attended the Derby,  where he witnessed the suffragette  incident.  The moving picture show given last  Saturday night by the ball club was  very successful. A capacity house  turned out, and were treated with six-  reels of excellent pictures.  Harry Tweddle of the Central Hotel,  Keremeos Center, is the recipient of  congratulations, this week. A wire  from California announced to him  that it was a boy and an eleven  pounder.  Airs. E.AI. Daly, Miss Florence Daly,  Aliss Ellen Corrigan, Alaurice Daly  and George Allison passed through  Hedley Saturday on their way to  Princeton. They will camp out for  summer ;t little  way above Princeton.  An accident took place in the Highland mine at Ainsworth last week in  which one miner was killed and another badly injured. It is said that both  men were formerly miners, from the  Nickel Plate but we have been unable"  ���������to ascertain the names.  Fishing is a-strenuous pastime, to  keep in condition -for which.-.much  rest is necessary. Some of our Hedley  citizens appear to find it difficult even  to fulfil their social obligations during  the season set -.apart for luring the  finny tribe to the baited hook.  ''���������'.Miss McOaffery -who has taught the  junior department in the Hedley  school since the first, of the, year, left  this week for her home in Aladoc, Ontario, going by easy stages and visit-  , ing friends at various points oil the  way, including Armstrong, Calgary  and other places where she. has friends  residing.  L. G. MacHaffie and wife landed in  Vancouver. v from Edmonton, last  week and spent the week visiting at  Air. Macllm'e's home in Vancouver.  It is expected that they will arrive in  the Similkameen to visit Airs. Alac  Haffie's parents before returning to  Edmonton and will doubtless give  Hedley a call.  (?"A social dance was given on Friday  evening, June 27th, in Fraternity Hall-  Excellent music was furnished by W.  Daly of Keieiucos and George Stevens.  A lap supper was served at midnight,  after which danciug was resumed  until an early hour. Everybody had a  good time, and heard the strains of  Home Sweet Home with much regret  for the ending of another of Hedley's  most enjoyable evenings.  Air. L. AV. Shatford, AI.P.P. was up  to Penticton last week attending the  annual meeting of the Southern Okanagan Land Company. It was a, risky  experiment on his part to venture into  this part af the province at this time  of the year, and a. rattier severe attack  of his old trouble resulted from his  trip of a few weeks before to the eastern part of the riding. It is his intention to start with Alrs.( Shatford  and family on a trip to the old country  which will be part business and partly  pleasure. They expect to leave Vancouver for Montreal and Halifax on  July 10th and will sail from New  York.  Rev. Dr. Wright preached in Hedley on Sunday evening in behalf of the  B. C. Auxiliary of the Canadian Bible  Society ��������� and told his congregation of  the most successful year in the history  of the Society. The Reverend gentleman's talks are always appreciated  and the work of the Society made of  special interest to his hearers.  Hon. Price Ellison, Alinister of Agriculture, is in the Okanagan this  week accompanied by his deputy, AV.  E. Scott, and the immediate cause of  their visit is> to inquire into the fire  blight which is affecting many of the  fruit, trees about Penticton and Suni-  inerland. Air. Ellison was in the district the week before, and learning of  the trouble, promised that all the assistance which could be rendered by  his department would be forthcoming,  and .the present visit is a fulfilment of  the promise.  Those who may have entertained  the idea that, ex-constable John Tooth  had passed the years of efficiency because he was over- sixty years of age,  had the fallacy of their contention  demonstrated last week in Vancouver  where he proved himself as proficient  at the art of thief catching as the best  of them. He was in a crush going into the Orpheum "theatre with a friend  when he felt some one jostling in a  peculiar way behind him and disco v-  ered that his pocket book which was  in his hip pocket had disappeared, and  a cliap was seen trying to make his  way through the crowd in the opposite direction. Tooth soon got to him  and once he obtained a grip there was  no shaking him off. The thief had  the goods in his possession and - was  landed in the coop, where the police  soon discovered that he was the man  they wanted1 on two or three other  charges. And yet John Tooth was  laid aside after many years of efficient  work in the constabulary of this pro  vince because he was declared to have  passed the efficiency age limit of sixty  years.  CLAIMS HEAVY DAMAGES  VANCOUVER, B C, June 20.���������  Claiming $60,000 damages the Emerson Lumber company today, filed a  writ in the local supreme' court registry against Hon. Price Ellison, provincial minister of finance, and  Messers. Andrew and Charles Haslem.

June 20.-Over 10,000  square inches of skin must be given  for grafting purposes if the death  list of the Hues ted elevator explosion  and fire is to be kept from reaching  far more appalling proportions, according to conservative estimates of physicians attending the injured. To meet  this sacrifice there must be 800 volunteers. A public appeal will be made  as soon as the exact conditions are  known.

John Knox Wright delivered a  splendid address  in  the Presbyterian  church  on  Sunday evening   on   the  work of the British and Foreign Bible  Society.     He  told of the   wonderful  work done  by 1100 colporteurs   and  over 000 Bible women  scattered over  the   world   and   constantly   on    the  tramp carrying the word of God to  the uttermost parts of the  earth,  and  told  of 450,000,000 people  who   have  never yet had a chance  to get   the  Bible or the message it bears.  The Greenwood Agricultural Association will hold a meeting this week  to decide on the question of continuing  the annual fall fair. There seems to  be little doubt among Greenwood  people but that the fair will bo held as  usual.  The football club in Greenwood has  rented club rooms, which will be fitted  up with reading tables, dressing rooms,  etc., for the benefit of the young men  of that town.  Nelson has arranged an excellent  program of land and water sports for  the celebration of Dominion Day.  Hon. J.D. Hazen, minister of marine  and fisheries, has advanced the date of  his west trip, and will reach the Pacific coast in time to welcome the new  battle-cruiser, New Zealand, on behalf  of the Canadian government.

There is just as good work being done in. country  offices as in the- cities, and often as poor work in the cities  as in the worst country shops  In Prices the country office can do just as well for  you and you save the express. The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of Avork.  THE  HEDLdY   GAZETTE  is prepared to  do any kind of work that may come along.  No order too small and none too large.  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������
