HEDLEY,  B, C.  Grand Union  Hotel ________  HEDLEY, B. C.  It is now a little over a week since  steel was laid into the yawls in Keremeos, and during that time they have  heen busy getting sidings laid down  and matters in ship shape, for regular  traffic. Four tracks have been laid  down the entire length of the station  yard and a Y is being put in.  As this will be the end of the steel  during the completion of grading operations to Hedley and Princeton,  ample proA'ision is being made for  tracking for materials:  The large steam shovel used by the  ballasting crew has been brought up  and placed in position in the big gravel  bank near the station. This shovel  can load a large flat-car in seven shovelfuls, and the one belonging to Stewart  &'Welch, Avhich Avas used in grading,  is a runt in comparison with it. A  large quantity of gravel will be taken  out of this bank, for in addition to the  ballasting, a considerable portion of  the grade to the south of the Armstrong bridge requires to be raised a  few feet.  There Avere many-doubting Thomases in Hedley on Tuesday forenoon  when news came over the wire from  Keremeos that: Louis W. Hill, President of the Great Northern had arrived there that morning in his private  car, accompanied by A. H. Hogc-lancl^  Chief Engineer of the Great Northern  system. It was a 'severe strain oh the  credulity, but in ten or fifteen minutes  after repeated assurances had been  received, the fact soaked in, and Hedley was prepared to believe that in  about an hour's time the -auto''.car  would reach here.  About 1:30 they came, and a few  minutes before and after luncheon at  the hotel Similkameen. they chatted  with sundry citizens, among whom  were L. W." Shatford, M. P. P., F. A.  Ross, General Manager Daly Reduction Co., C. A. Crawford, auditor, the  ���������President and Secretary of the' Board,  of Trade and"some of the* executive.  The President of the Great Northern  has a. pleasing personality, and Avhile  not voluble, at once puts those whom  he meets at ease. He is in the full  vigor of manhood, and above aA'erage  height and   weight,   Avith  full,  well-  CAMP  McKINNEY.  Stamp Mill Again in Operation on Cariboo Ore���������Other Leases Pending.

This old camp which for years held  the distinction of containing British  Columbia's fhst dividend-paying lode  mine*, but Avhich for the past three  years witnessed a cessation of operations, after having for a decade paid  handsome profits to its owners, is again  the. scene of active operations. For  something over a Aveek the stamp mill  has been running and machine drills  are at work in the stopes.  The present operators are the leaseholders,   most   of   whom   belong   to  Phoenix, B.C.    Some inside knowledge  of mine conditions at the time of suspension  of operations,  added  to the  splendid record  of its  operations between April, 1S9-1,   and January, 190-1,  led  them to  take  the lease.    During  the ten years that the Cariboo was in  operation it produced $1,750,000 in bullion,   under very adverse conditions,  and of this, paid in dividends $559,000.  With  better transportation facilities,  the cost of getting in freight and shipping out concentrate's should be con-  I si durably lessened.    The lease-holders  | began unwatering the mine in January  last, which took something over three  months to complete.     At present IS  men are at work, and  the  producing  stage has again been reached for them.  One handicap  that has been apparent  since the  lessees  took  hold  is seen in  the  worn out condition of the  plant.  To this  was due  largely  the greater  length  of time  taken   in  unwatering  the mine than the lessees had counted  on, and it is seen   clay by day as more  of the old plant is brought into use.  There are rumors afloat that other  leases are likely to be taken and the  camp resume something more of its  old time bustle. Negotiations are said  to be under way for a lease on the  Sailor Consolidated on the same terms  as those upon which the Cariboo is  leased.  There has been a gieat deal of kicking because of the mail service to the  camp during the past year. A change  in the route is soon to be made by  which the camp  Bridevillo on the  from Sidley.  trimmed heard. But the most striking  feature in his physique is the broad  heavy shoulders which, would enable  him if need be, to back up his sentiments Avith braAvn, and in him the  Great Northern Avill continue to have,  as it has always had, a virile head, for  he is bound to prove a worthy scion of  a worthy sire.  The party left for Princeton at 2:30  p. in., intending to return to Hedley  and pass the night. Mr. Hill himself  was the chauffeur, and exhibited  marked skill in handling the machine.  The. trip Avas made without accident of  any kind over a road that required  nerve on the part of the man at the  helm. About an hour Avas spent at  Princeton examining the coal properties of the Vermillion Forks Mining  Company and other points of interest.  A start Avas made at Princeton on the  return trip to Hedley at 5:30 p. in. and  Hedlev was reached a few minutes af-  ed many and had disappointed themselves. While this scarcity continued  to exist, it prevented any accurate  forecast of time of completing, any  particular Avork, and consequentlyhe.  preferred to refrain from 'stipulating'  any particular time for completion lest  further disappointment should result.  His company had 8,000 men on coii;  struction. west of the, Rockies, and  Avhile on the Panama canal, which was  considered such a, colossal task, only  about 8,000 yards of earth per month  was being moved while the Great Northern were moving 12,000,000 yards of  earth per annum or a million a month.  /'\   , UP THE TRAMWAY.  7Yesterday '��������� morning Mr. Ross took  his guests up the trannvay to show  them the Nickel Plate mine and workings,, and''the splendid views of the  valley obtainable from central station  and the ore bins. Messrs. L. W. Shatford and A. Megraw accompanied.  EA*ery care was taken, by Mr. Ross  to make the trip comfortable and enjoyable., which the party fully appreciated. The visitors expressed the  pleasure derived from the trip, and the  profusion of Avild flowers by the wayside seemed a .constant source of .'delight to Mr. Hill, who apparently is an  ardent lover of nature.  After inspection of the mine, a return Avas made to the mill which was  also taken in, and about 11 a. in. they  boarded the automobile for Keremeos.  Mr. Hill certainly produced a splendid impression, and the visit is bound  to be productive of good all around.

Ratepayers of Hedley Elect a Trustee and  Vote Funds for Coming Year.  will  V.V  be served from  i-c E. instead of  ter 7. An amusing incident occurred  on Hedley streets on the return, when  an Indian on catching sight of the  auto shouted '��������� Wagon run away."  In Hedley they Avere the guests of  Mr. F. A. Ross, general manager of  the Daly Reduction Co., and Mr. Ross  extended a kindly invitation to toAvns-  people who might wish to call upon  his distinguished guests.  During the early part of the evening  Mr. L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., interviewed Mr. Hill in the interests of his  constituency, which on the completion  of the road will be travel.seel from end  to end by the V. V. & E. Later, Mr.  Hill received a deputation from the  Hedley Board of Trade, consisting of  the president and secretary, Messrs.  Shier and jV.aoHafrie, and Messrs. Love.  Gladden and Megraw. The object of  the interview was explained by A. Megraw, who pointed out some of the  mutual advantages which would follow  early completion of the road.  Mr. Hill, in replying, expressed the  pleasure he had derived from this his  first visit to the Similkameen although  he could assure the deputation that it  Avas many years since he had first had  the district in mind. He .was convinced that the. Similkameen needed a railway, and had full confidence in its resources. Camp Hedley, he was sure,  Avould justify the confidence that his  company had shown in their decision  to build through here. He regretted  that circumstances beyond their control had caused delay. The impossibility of securing sufficient men to  cover all the work that they had intended to do, had doubtless disappoint-  ���������The annual school meeting was held  on Saturday- last in the school-house,  and was rather indifferently attended.  G. H. Sproule was elected chairman  of the meeting and S. L. Smith, secretary-treasurer of the. School Board,  acted as secretary.  The Trustees' financial statement,  showing receipts and expenditures,  duly audited by J. J. Irwin, and also  the Trustee's' annual report, Avere presented, and on motion were adopted.  The financial statement shewed the  purchase of the old property and the  speedy erection of a building for temporary use. had been a paying proposition, as well as the most practical  solution of the difficulty of being hustled about from one building to another,  but now that the new tAVO-roomed  school building has been completed the  disposal or use of the temporary school  building placed a new care upon the  Board, upon Avhich-the wishes of the  rate-payers was'now sought.  The. action taken by the meeting was  to pass a motion authorizing the Board  to dispose of the old premises a-t a minimum fixed sum which represented the  cost price of the lot and building together with the* interest on the loan  by means of which the building was  erected, or such further sum as the  Board might be able to obtain.  Another cpiestion to be decided by  the meeting was whether to levy a  sufficient sum to provide; running expenses for the coming year together  with sufficient to pay off all indebtedness, or to trust to the sale of the old  property to finance things for next  year, in which case if advantageous  sale could be effected the procc-eds  might supply sufficient funds to relieve in whole or in part any burden of  taxation for the; coming year. To take  the former course meant a le>'y which   portance was made to the plant during  Report of Jas. R. Brown, Acting  Gold Commissioner, Faira~ieav,  B. C. :���������  I haye the honor to submit herewith  my annual report of the niining 'opera-'  tion's'in the  Osoyoos  Mining Division  for the'year 1900.  Camp Fairview.'  Very little  niining  work has  been  done this year outside of assessments,  excepting on  the, Stem winder.',.'The'  company operating this mine has, during the past year,   undergone  re-construction,  and is now known  as  the  Steniwinder   Gold   and   Coal   Mining  Company, Ltd.     Anew Hume, over a  mile long, has been constructed from  Reed creek  to  the1 head of the pipeline, which doubles-the water supply  available   for   power   and   treatment:  purposes,.and will, for a portion of the  year, enable, steam costs to be entirely  dispensed with.    A large  belt-driven,  cross-compound, Rand air-compressor  has been installed in the mill adjoining  the Corliss engine, by which it can be  driven;  the  compressor "may also be  driven by the water wheel.    A supply  of the new Murphy drills has been obtained,  from  Avhich  great things are-  expected.'   The shaft is being sunk to  tho 000-ft. level from the bottom of the  present 300-ft.   incline shaft,  all new  work being perpendicular,  and a. raise  is to be made from  the present 300-ft.  level, Avhich Avill come out at the back  of the mill and gi\*e an admirable site  foi' new heaclworks, dump and crusher,  and facilitate the delivery of ore to the  mill.   The ore has  been  found  under  the   break   Avhich caused   temporary  suspension some  time ago, and unless  unlooked-for difficulties arise, by cross-  cutting   this  ore  body each  100 feet  during  the   sinking   operation,  there  will  become available a. large amount  of pay ore that will  demonstrate  the  value of this property.  On Kruger mountain but little work  has been done either on the  Dividend  or Gold Dust group of claims.  Camp Hedley.  On the Nickel Plate and other properties of the. Yale Mining Company  less development has been done* than  in any other year since the property  was first bonded in 1S98; but it was a  record year for extraction, and this  was clone with a view to obtaining the  maximum value of which the existing  plant and ore. in sight was capable.  Fortunately, the amount of development done before the present manager  took charge avms sufficiently extensive  to permit of this course of "picking  the eyes out," Avithout any serious impairment of the value of the; property.  The development was confined to exploration work with tin* diamond drill,  of which 3,(>00 feet was done on various  claims of the Nickel Plate group.  The tonnage of ore mined and milled  during the year was 35,000 tons, principally from the Nickel Plate and Sunnyside claims.    No addition of anv Iin���������  would almost double the; school taxes  for next year. The meeting chose; a  middle course and decided on a levy of  $750, Avhich would enable them to go  along carrying the present loans and  having sufficient- to pull through on  without sacrificing property by any  forced  sale.  F. H. French avjis elected trustee and  C. Hairsine appointed auditor.  Mr. J. R. Greenfield, Post Office Inspector visited Hedley on Tuesday  night, and began inspection of the office here. Mr. Greenfield is an old and  thoroughly competent official of the  P. 0. department, Avho in his earlier  days was a typo, Avhicli. accounts for  his ability to give a good account of  himself in other Avalks of life.  the year,   but a few necessary changes  were effected.    The postponement  of  extension  of  the  works  or  improvement of the; plant may be credited  to  the failure of the railway company to  complete construction within the time  set.    The.  Company  has already paid  large; sums  of  money for  haulage of  plant from Pe;nticton, and when it was  promised railway  connection   in   tho  early autumn of 1906,   it was perhaps  justified in Avaiting for it before bringing in additional plant.   The concentrates have  been hauled by  wagon to  Penticton,  a cheaper rate of haulage  being obtained by giving the freighter  a, load of concentrates for back loading.  On   the   Humming   Bird   group  of  claims, owned by J. J. Marks and others,   them;  was  done,  in   addition   to  considerable prospecting, 2,000 feet of  diamond  drilling,   from   which satisfactory results Avere obtained.  Continued on Page Four.

Now in   tin; natural   course   of  the life- of any properly managed mine  the very   opposite;   is   to   be   expected,  and in   departing   from   the  orthodox  rotu.-e it would   appear  on   first-  view  that Hi'- manager who did so,   compelled one o|' 1 wo conclusions :   Kithor he  is a novice ill mine management or he  ,, 1 ���������    , ���������        ���������        ���������      1  - I Average maximum temperature 70.  hail some ol)|ecl  in   view  in   doing  so. j "       .   . *  j Average minimum do 11.71  I he Gazelle is of the   impression   that , Mi,aii u>1Mp(,mtu,t>  it is a ease of both : for we an; further Kaini'all for the; week .0 inches,  told in tin1 1 epoi't Ih.-il "it was a receu-el  year for exl laction", and if might  have added tliat this "record extraction, was at the expense of the ore reserves.

Road Supervisor Dea.rdorff started a  crew to work on the Twenty-mile  wagon road on Monday. A few men  who came in on Saturday and Sunday  got work on it.  Rev. A. H.. Cameron held Presbyterian service, in, Hedley em Sunday  evening. He had paid a visit to Suin-  merland and Kelowna during the  Aveek, and got back in time to fill the  Hedley engagement.    *  The scarcity of men continues to be  the cry. In many parts road Avork is  languishing because men cannot be  got to do it, and various other improvements are held back for lack of  labor.  J. H.

The Vernon News has been enlarged  to a seven col. quarto, and in every  respect improved. The News is a credit to its publishers, and a credit to  the district, and any advancement it  may make has a particularly pleasing  interest for the Gazette for old times'  sake.  Dr. C. W. Cross, veterinary dentist,  of Ashcroft, was in town on Saturday  and Monday. He went through to  Keremeos and points in the lower  Okanagan, and. will attend to what  practice in equine dentistry he may  be able to pick up on the trip, as well  as taking orders for the Sharpless Tubular cream separator.  A few beacon fires have been burning along the streets. It was not by  way of celebrating any particular  event but merely to ge*t rid of a few  unsightly stumps. On Saturday an  attack was made on them with dynamite which ended disastrously .for one  of the; windows of the Bank of B. N. A.  The charge used would have been perfectly safe for a green stump, but this  proved to be a little rotten, and the  pie'ces flew about it little too promiscuously.  Dr. McEwen received a call to go up  to the niine; on Saturday afternoon  where it was reported that Jack Mc-  Kinnon, foreman on the Sunnysides,  had been injured by falling rock. The  first report which got about was to the;  effect that the injury was serious, but  the doctor found only a severe scalp  wound, which although painful, didn't  impress the; patient with the; necessity  of even laying up for repairs. It was,  however, a very narrow escape, and  luckily for him he; was able to shift  bis position suHiciently to avoid a mass  of rock that woulel have crushed the  life out of him. Preparation was being made for a shaft, and it was in  barring down rock that was elangc-r-  011s that the accident occurred.  The Minister eif Justice has refused  to interfere for a commutation of the  death sentence passed upon'James A.  Dale for the murder of Joseph Celle  and Peter Goudreau at Garnii last fall;  A numerously signed petition has been  forwarded to Ottawa, many signing it  with the idea that it would be futile,  or they would not have done so. While  deep ������������������'sympathy is felt for the aged  father of the poor, wretch and for others of the family, public sentiment in  Canada abhors the terrible crime of  murder, and is inexorable in exaction  of the awful penalty which, in this  country is visited upon all who set so  low an estimate upon human life as to  take the lives of others.

Mr. Dowdney rarely fails to  visit the: district at least once; a year,  and no one; notes with greater pleasure than he any evidences of advancement from year to year, for his faith  in it extends over a period of forty  years. The last decade has served to  justify the; early faith which led him  to toil through the; mountains and lay  out anel build the* Dowdney trail, which  for long years was the sole artery of  communication into the Kootenays,  and which in portions is still in use;.  The Governor, in spite of those strenuous years, is still hale and hearty, and  his friends all hope that he; may be  spared to Avitness the; advances which  must attend the; next decade.  ^"tftaM'AW^Ofo*^^^  TDK  Great.

The Golden Zone Group, owned also  by .1. .1. Marks et al, and consisting of  the Golden Zone, Silver Hell, 11. C. and  Irish Boy, was improved to the'extent,  of a bout $1,000 worth of work. Former shafts and tunnels were extended  and a new find made which gives excellent .assay values. The total development'done to date is much more; extensive than that done on the; average  claims held, by private'parties.  The Florence Group, in Twenty-mile  canyon, is owned by Thos. Bradshaw,  who spe'iit .about $1,500 in development  work during the year. The; amount  already expended on these claims, the;  'Florence, Florence Fractional and the  Zee'rust Fractional, amounts to over  $S,000, principally in tunnelling. The  ore is arsenical pyrites carrying satisfactory gold values.  On tlie Greenwood Group, owned by  Mr. Duncan Woods, three men worked  the greater part of the summer 'on  development work.

V.  cv E. station will be ready for  the; accomodation   of  guests   before;   the  rival of the first passenger train.  The Rev. Mr. Cameron was at Olalla.  on Tuesday morning. He took a photo  of McAuley i*c Armstrong's pack  horses loaded with stove, pipes, cooking utensils, grindstone; A:c. for Cedar  Creek mine.  Washington, D. C. July (i.���������In connection with the disturbance mentioned in last bulletin to cross from S  to 12, will come the coolest weather o  July, the principal rains of the month  will close, and dryer weather will come  in as this diturbance. goes out. Severe  storms are expected during the passage of this dissturbance across the continent, but these storms cover such a  small part of the country that it is not  practical to definitely locate them at  this time. As meteorology progresses  that feature of weather forecasts may  be materially improved.  Third disturbance of July Avill reach  Pacific coast about 10, cross west of  Rockies country by close of 11 great  central valleys 12, eastern states .14.  Cool wave will cross Avest of Rockies  about l.Lgreat central valleys 15, eastern states 17.  Here comes in a great hot wave,  somewhat similar and from similar  causes to the hot wave beginning about  the middle of June. The highest temperatures of the month will occur during this and the following disturbances  anel crops will feel the effect of drouth.  Rainfall Avill be generally deficient  after July 11. but serious damage may i  not result. I am expecting the sectional or local drouth of July to extend  into August, and this high temperature wave, covering the middle part of  July, will be important as an indical  tor of what may be expected in August.  About, and immediately following  elate of this bulletin, showers, severe  storms, and great extremes of temperature may be expected, At this season  the weather is usually sluggish, the  highs and lows move slowly and weather changes art; not freepient, but not  so for July, 1007; the reverse of the  usual may be expected.  Washington, D. C, July 111.���������Last  bulletin gave forecasts of disturbance  to cross continent 11 to 15, warm wave  10 to 14, cool wave VA to 17. Next disturbance, will reach Pacific coast about  15,cross west of Rockies country by  close of 1(5, great central valleys 17 to  11), eastern .states 10. Cool wave* will  cross west of Rockies about 18,  central vallevs 20, eastern states 22  This disturbance will bring a heated  ir-1 term, a great hot waA'e and the high-  ] est average temperatures of the. month.  Te;n days of serious and damaging  drouth may be expected in some of  the principal corn sections of the Missouri anel middle; Mississippi valleys.  This heated term will probably close  by 21 to 211 find about that time the  drouth will be partially broken bv  ot  MONTHLY RIFLE MATCH.  Scores   Made  in   the    Monthly  for   July.  Shoot  The Hedley Rifle Association's  monthly shoot for July Avitnessed a  general improvement in the scoring,  the cup and medal being won this  time by E. D. Boeing on a score of (54  points out of possible 75, or (5 points  higher than made a month ago by L.  C. W. Rolls Avho obtained the cup on  a total of 58 points.  The number of competitors Avas not  so large, some having gone away and  others having other engagements.  The medal was shot this time on the  200 and 400 ranges, and in winning it  on a total of 45 points out of a possible  50, it made this a. record shoot, being  the highest total on which the medal  has yet been Avon. In the June shoot  it Avas won by Mr. Rolls on a total of  (53. Another feature about this win is  thai/ this is the second time, the medal  has been saved to the club by Mr. Boeing, for on another occasion it Avould  have been won for the third time by  Mr. Gillespie and would have passed  from the club had it not been Avon by  Mr. Boeing.  A new eaip is being procured by the  club to take the place of the one captured by Mr. Rolls. Now is the time  for new members to come in and thus  qualify for the chilis trophies.
