Marks and Mrs.  Marks came  down from the Hummingbird on Tuesday, and chose for the trip the route  to he traversed by tlie new wagon  road. At present there is not even a  trail, and from the fact that Mrs.  Marks made the trip on foot and reached Hedley tolerably fresh and fit, it  does not indicate that the route of the  B. G. nenv l'0!Ul 1& so difficult as sonic would,  try to make out. Mr. Marks is quite  satisfied that the portion already completed is the most difficult of all.  There is still another mile that will he  sufficiently difficult to make slow  going, but after that all will be easy  and progress will be rapid. He is delighted with the grade of the portion  already built, and considers that the  care being taken to keep the grade  even and easy will save thousands of  dollars in freighting over it.  THE GOLDEN ZONE.  After finishing work on the Golden  Zone several weeks ago, a hard sampling was made of all the workings, and  returns have just been received from  O'Sullivan of Vancouver, who did the  assaying.   These are as follows :  1.   Sample  2.  3.  4. ���������������    .  5.  6.  7.  8.  9.  No. 9 is'from  and the value is silver, with  the  exception of $5 gold.  It is his intention to do more worli  on the Golden Zone group this fall  and winter, to follow up and ascertain  the extent of the body in the recent  discovery.  THE HUMMINGBIRD  GROUP.  The diamond drilling for this season  has been stopped on the Hummingbird,  but will be resumed in the spring with  a larger drill that will enable them to  go 1500 feet.    The last hole was pub in  about 000 feet,~giving a vertical depth  of 550 feet.    The result of the season's  drilling  has   been   most  satisfactory  and has put them   in   possession   of  much  valuable information.     In   the  last hole they  went through 400 feet  of andesite and had reason to believe  that    they   were   almost   through   it  when the limit of the drill's capacity  was reached.    Much ore was encountered, especially in the last few days'  drilling.   Something over 160 samples  of core will   be   tested   to   ascertain  values.     From   a   few   tests   already  made they have reason to expect satisfactory results.   With the information  obtained from  this  season's drilling,  they   will   await   the arrival   of   the  larger drill in   the  spring with  considerable   impatience,  to prove fully  and finally the   correctness *of#their  theories.        .  The Gold Commissioner says :  "The following work was done on  the properties of the Daly Reduction  Company, situated in the aliove camp  during this year:���������  "On the Nickel Plate 1,500 feel of  tunneling and 50 feet of raising was  done. On the Sunnyside mineral  claim, 500 feet of drifting, 120 feet of  raising, and 2000 feet of diamond drilling was done on the Nickel Plate,  Sunnyside and Bulldog claims. Stop-  ing was carried out in the Nickel Plate  during the yeai-, and open-cut work  was carried out on both the Nickel  Plate and Sunnyside properties. Prospecting was done cm all other properties owned by the company. A new  ore-storage pile and track were provided at the ore-bins. The amount of  ore mined and milled during the year  was : Nickel Plate, 17,437 tons; Sunnyside, 14,994 tons ; total, 32,341.  "Note by Provincial Mineralogist.���������  The YaleMining Company, operating  the Nickel Plato mine, and the Daly  Reduction Co., operating the mill in  conjunction therewith, have proved to  be among the most successful organizations operating in the Boundary  District, and practically the only one  operating with a stamp mill, concentration and cyanide plant combined.  The enterprise is considered .to'..be "of  sufficient importance to justify the reproductions of the plan and section of  the mill at Hedley which accompany  this report. -The'Provincial Mineralogist- is indebted to a mining engineer,  familiar with the district; foi- the following description of the mine and  plant:  "The Yale Mining Company oper-  "Tile Reduction Plant.  "There are two Pai-rel-type jaw-  crushers, one 10 by 20 inches, and one  6 by 20 inches, discharging by lielt  conveyor into an ore-bin holding 1,500  tons, then by Challenge suspended  feeders to the stamps. The stamps  weigh 1,050 pounds, and drop 100 times  a minute in narrow ���������Homestake' pattern mortals weighing about 8000  pounds, set on concrete blocks and  crush approximately three tons per  stamp, with 30-mesh screen, working  21 hours. This low duty is accounted  for by the ore. being very html and  tough, and not crushing as freely as  straight quartz ore. This duty can be  brought up to four tons per stamp by  crushing finer with the rock breakers.  "Free gold ranging from 25 to 50%  of the assay value is caught on plates  51 inches wide 'by 10 feet long, and  from the plates the pulp goes over  Frue vanners (eight vanhers have* been  added since drawing was made), recovering about 30% of the gold contents in concentrates, and the balance*  goes to the cyanide plant, consisting  of twelve settling and leaching tanks  34 feet diameter by six feet deep, four  conical bottom slime tanks, with 10-  foot staves and 30 feet diameter, with  bottom sloping 20" from horizontal,  two gold and two sump tanks 30 feet  diameter by 10 feet deep, and the  usual zinc precipitating room and  cleanup. The original estimate of the  ore was based on a gold assay value of  $12 per ton, but the extraction has  exceeded this amount. The concentrates range from two ounces to 1(5  ounces per ton. Owing to the isolation of the plant from transportation,  it was designed with a view of adding  re-grinders, and completing the cyanide plant, after operating the mill  the first year.  "The extraction averaged about 89%  of the assay value of the ore up to the  hitter part of 1905.  "With a view erf introducing tube  mills for re-grinding the tailings from  the vanners before cyaniding, the following tests were made by Mr. Brown,  the mill superintendent at Hedley,  from March to July, 1905 :  IMPORTANT MASONIC EVENT  Hedley Lodge   No.    43, A. F. & A.  Duly Constituted.  M  With,the visit to Hedley, last week,  of It. W. Bro. John High man, under  special commission from the Grand  Master, to constitute the new "lodge  here, Hedley Lodge completed the  probatoiiiiry stage of its existence and  now has full standing with others in  the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of  British Columbia'. The impressive ceremonies of constitution and dedication  lieing completed and the officers duly  installed by the D. D. G. M., the lodge  assumed its duties which, being concluded in due form, all sat down to a  spread provided by J. E. Gibbon of the  Hotel Hedley.  The chair was then occupied by" A.  Megraw, W. M. of Hedley Lodge,  with R. W. Bro. Highman unci W.  Bro. J. D. Brass on his right and \V.  Bros. Cameron and Duffy, past-masters on his left, while members of  Hedley Lodge and visiting brerthien  lined the banquet table.  The toasts were "The King and the  Craft," "The Grand Lodge of British  Columbia," responded to by R. \V.  Bro. Highman ; "visiting brethren,"  by W. Bros. Cameron and Duffy and  others : "Hedley Lodge." by the Wardens, Bros. Fraser and Shier and by  W. Bro. Brass ;. "affilianls," by Bro.  W. E. Burritt and "The Ladies" by  Bros. Stewart and Barnes, ��������� when a  very pleasant function was brought  to a clohc bv all singing "Auld Lang  Svne."  Hedley Lodge starts out with bright  prospects and a determination to folr  low faithfully the ancient landmarks  and maintain the high standard of  Masonry required within the jurisdiction of the.

"The ore occurs as a crushed or  breceiated zone of quartzite between  andesite eruptives in the Nickel .Plate  claim, and at the south end of the  zone the ore is clearly a limestone  altered to a very silicious ore. Ore-  chutes have been opened up along this  ore zone for a distance of" over 4.000  feet, unci the ore averages 50 feet in  width. The ore occurs native in the  brecciated quartzite and in the arsenical pyrite in grains from the size ot a  pea clown to microscopic particles.  There appears to be more native or  free gold in tho quartzite ore than in  MINKS   AND   .MIM.S    EXAMINED,  SAMPLED    AND    IU-H'OltTl-.D    ON.  .Saiii-iles   by  mail  receive  ln-ompfc  attention.

The Government will call, at once,  for tenders for the erection of lock-up  and school-house at Hedley.  Word from the coast states that L.  W. Shatford M. P. P. is very much  improved in health and may return in  two or three weeks.  the altered limestone ore, though it is J fetft diameter.  probable flint the gold is in much finer  particles   in   the   latter.     Gold   also  occurs as a telluride,   while andesite,  which is the main eruptive rock of the  district, appears to be responsible* for  the ore-bodies. Narrow quartz porphry  dykes, usually  vertical or  nearly so,  occur in   the  ole-hoclies,  cutting  the  quartzite and andesite, and may have  played an important part in the mineralization. I  "The ore is mined by the open cut!  or .'glory hole' method and stopes, is  loaded directly into two-ton cars and  hauled bv electric locomotives to the  head of the gravity tramway, where it  is lowered in six-ton skips to the mill.  This  incline'   or   gravity tramway  is  about 10,001) feet in length, and drops  nearly 4.000 foot   between   terminals,  requiring four men to operate it.  "The normal capacity of the mill,  with 30-mesh screens, is 3,000 tons per  month, and by using 20 or 25-mesh the  capacity could be increased to 4,000  tons, and the extraction with re-  grinders could be brought up to 95%.  As no filter press was available de-  cantation only was used, which gave  lower results than could have been  obtained with them.  " Power Plant  "This consists of a four by four-feet  Hume, three miles long, with a. grade  of 1-10 of one per cent., or 5.28 feet per  mile, giving a head of 400 feet at  power-house.  "There is a Rand compound air-  compressor with air cylinders 17 by 28  inches in diameter by three feet stroke,  direct connected   to  water-wheel,   16  "There is four miles of 0] inches  diameter pipe-line, carrying the coin-  pressed air at 100 pounds pressure to  the mine.  "There is one 100 K.W., A.C. generator, 2,200 volts, three-phase transmission, direct connected to water-  wheel, which furnishes power for  lights and for the electric railway,  where a 50 h.p. motor generator fur  nishes a 500 D.C. for the road."  Come to Hedley for Labor Day.  Barney Guest returned last week  from the coast whether he had ridden  over the Hope trail. He sold his horse  down there, and being unable to get  another that would suithini, he walked  back, While in Vancouver he obtained employment in the Brittannia mine  and is going thei-e shortly.  The meeting called for Friday evening last, in Fraternity Hall, to arrange  for Labor Day sports, was a fairly representative gathering. R. G. Shier  was appointed chairman of the meeting, and A. Megraw secretary.  Jno. Love, as chairman of last year's  committee presented the following report:  "We your committee, appointed at  public meeting held July 23rd of last  year, beg to report for the Labor Day  celebration as follows : Our total subscription }ist amounted to $908. Of  this amount $32 remains uncollected,  making subscriptions paid $876. The  entrance fees amounted to $165, making a. total of $1,041 available for  prizes and expenses. A summary of  expenditure's will show :  Cash prizes $770.00  Expenses,   including   fireworks  219.93  Account, W. P. Rodgers...    37.25  This last was an account due W. P.  Rodgers from sports in .1904 ; leaving a  balance of $7.83.  "Herewith find balance sheet, auditor's report, programme, prize list,  vouchers, etc., all of which is respectfully submitted."  As the result of sundry motions, a.  committee was named, but its numbers made it altogether too unwieldy and for that reason impracticable. It was then decided that the  easiest way out of the difficulty was to  rescind these motions appointing  various parties on the committee, and  consider them as nominations from  which a committee of five be. elected  bv ballot, and said committee to have  power to add to their numbers. A  ballot being taken, it was found that  the committee thus elected were J.  McKinnon, Nickel Plate; Jno. Love,  L. G. MacHaffie, R. G. Shier and A.  Winkler from town.  The satisfactory, clean-cut statement  of last year's sports submitted by the  committee of 1905, was appreciated  thoroughly by the meeting and will  no doubt help out very materially in  obtaining contributions for this year's  sports. When citizens know that a  thoroughly responsible committee  have the handling of their funds and  that all will be strictly accounted for,  there is much more encouragement to.  give liberally.

It therefore  seems only reasonable that each  province should have reconnais-  ance surveys Avitli travei'.se lines  run by its own surveyors so that  maps prepared by the surveyor-  geuei'ai and issued by authority  of the Lands and Works Department should be reasonably  accurate, and these would faeil-  i itate very materially the work  ! of field : geologists and enable  the men of the Geological Survey to accomplish more" work, .j  Even to prospectors it is often a;  serious matter when they risk j  their very lives on the accuracy j  of maps that may play them  false. ��������� ,-.���������������������������  and  Similkameen Advertiser.  is u'. ii Thursdays, by the Hkdi.ky G.v/.kit.

On the other hand.it is to be hoped'that it  may mean that greater interest  will henceforth be taken in this  important  work.    In   the  iDast  the Geological  Survey  has accomplished much for Canada in  encouraging colonization and in  development, of .the resources of  the country.    It has  had directors of exceptional  merit and  ability, and  it  lias  had  others  who, perhaps,-required  a  spin-,  although it is  not always  safe  -nor  just  to  condemn   without  .full knowledge of  the  circumstances.

The  M.  & V.  people,  of course,  might  stipulate a condition, but conditions are not often  taken  seriously from the fellow who is in  the iast ditch.    If  the G.N. R.  is the buyer,  the  road, will  be  built as soon as  they can  find  time and men, neither of which  seem   plentiful   with  them  at  present.     If it is  the G. P.

WHEN   ANSWERING   ADVERTISERS,    MENTION   THE    GAZETTE THEHEDLEYGAZETTE, JULY   20,   1906.  .   A Fishing- Expedition.  Five   able-bodied   fishermen    from  Hedley went on a fishing expedition  last Saturday up Wolf Creek to some  lakes about three or four miles up the  creek from its mouth.   The party ���������consisted.' of Messrs. E. D. Boeing, R. G.  Shier,  Jno.  Love,' J. "J.   Irwin,   and  H.  H.  Messenger.    The camp equipment and the conunisary, particularly  the  latter,   contained   many  of   the  good things in life; ditto the medicine  ,   chest, which was judiciously, hut not  too lavishly, supplied with anti-snakebite.   A two-horse rig conveyed  the  force and its cquipineiitto;.Wolf creek,  after which the horses were.uiihitched  and their packs put on.   Then the fun  began.   One unimal, left for safe-keeping to the-charge, of the banker, suddenly took on ���������ymptoms resembling.  Mt, Vesuvius in eruption, and  breaking away from its dismayed guardian,.,  fandangoed through the brush, arousing    heart-burning   anxiety   in    the  breasts of those who trembled for the  safety of the medicine chest.    When  the horse was re-captured a council of  Avar was held and it was decided unanimously that owing to the great probability of many snakes,  the antidote  should lie immediately extracted from  the pack and carried by hand.   Camp  was made that evening cm one of tlie  lakes, and next morning by day-break  the party was astir with rod and line.  The lake was apparently full-of-fish,  but, it being Sunday morning and the  better   class   of   fish   having decided  opinions on  Sunday sports, declined  participating.    Only a few -squaw fish  were bagged, so it was decided to go  down to the river, which they did, and  were   rewarded   with  better success.  The credit of the biggest catch belongs  to Messenger.    This latter is generally,  conceded, but it is  still an  unsettled  point whether it is harder to  hold a  horse that is bucking all fours or one  that rises on its hind legs.   ���������  Is   A  Hedley  is the supply point for the Niekel Plate ihoun-..  tain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel .

It is the mining and business  centre of the  Similkameen  Make  Money  the new mining district which has already heen proven, by a  small amount of development work, to lie one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town cm 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...

It begins to look  as if no stop will be put to this state of  affairs until constables are compelled  to exercise the same vigilance and persistence in finding out the guilty parties as are observed in the case of a  robbery or other felony iu most of  cases in which the loss is far less than  that resulting from one of these bush  fires.  rtH,F������_-"V   TO-  The Hedley City Towns!te Co'y, Ltd.
