Office  at   HEDLEY,   B.  C.  WHERE THEY MAKE WIRELESS  A Visit To The Seattle Factory of the  United Wireless Telegraph Co  During a brief visit to the coast hist  month the Gazette's representative  spent part of the time in Seattle* in  visiting the offices of the United Wireless Telegraph Co. While New York  is the headquarters of the Company,  the amount of hustle -and rush to he  seen around the offices in Seattle,  makes'it difficult to conceive wherein  the main office could exceed the  western branch unless it be that the  western force in under-manned. "*���������  The offices are in the People's Bank  building and embrace different departments, for Seattle is the headquarters  for tlie entire Pacific Coast as well as  various states adjoining. Mr. Geo. H.  Parker the fiscal agent for'the west is  tit the head of the financial department. Mr. R. H. Armstrong, of the  construction department which includes also that of manufacturing, and  Mr. P. C. Doig is in charge of the Pa-"  cific News Service which aims to supply  the latest news of the coast and the  ocean to newspapers, that have sufficient enterprise to use the wireless news  service'in addition ,to the other news  .collecting agencies.  The factory in which all wireless apparatus is made is .off in west Seattle,  and very few indeed are allowed to see  the inside of it. Ths fact that the  Gazette representative is the Company's agent in this part of the western'field "and could be relied an to do  nothing antagonistic to its interest  was perhaps the main reason why Mi'.  Armstrong communicated with the  superintendent of the factory, Mr.  Nelson, and secured admission to the  works.  The main factory anel electrical  laboratories of the Company are located in Jersey City where most of the  working . plans of apparatus are prepared, but the Seattle factory makes  the greater part of the equipment being installed by the Construction department oh the western coast.  A unique feature of this factory is  that it differs from those in other lines  of-manufacture, in'that they have not  only, to tiirh out the manufactured  goods, but manufacture the tools to  make them Avith and also train  the  shooting accident  ;    At thf golden zone  One of the  Miners Accidently  Shot  the leg by a Companion. '���������!'"'  NICKEL PLATE WINS EASILY  in  : On Sunday morning before going on  shiftatthe Golden Zone a group of  miners were in  front of the stable,'  some standing and others sitting on a  log,   One of those sitting down had a  22 caliber rifle on his knee, which for  some iinae-countable reason  went off,  although the  owner was not aware  that there was a loaded   cartridge in  the chamber.   The bullet struck Mike  Sedich, an Austrian miner in  the left  leg between the knee and the ankle.  It passed between the tibia and fibula,  and missed an artery by about half an  in'ch.'.becomihg lodged.in the muscles.  Vinto'Williams, in whose hands the  rifle was,  carried  the   wounded man  into the bunk house for'they were  always'the' best of friends.   As soon as  the wound was bound up iind the team  could'be got ready he was driven into  'Hedley.'   Unfortunately Dr. Whillans  happened to be out of town and it was  net until evening that the bullet could  be" probed for and the wound dressed.

To appreciate thisfeature   of   the  situjitibn the reader must be told that  the" system of wireless used  by the  United Wireless Telegraph Co. differs  so    materially   from-  others   that a  mechanic from one of Marconi's fac-r  tories would be off little use to them  until he could be taught how to make  the newer and more efficiehtapparatiis.  The United Company is as its name  implies the product of the combined  efforts of electrical experts in the line  of wireless,  and it embraces the most  advanced features of about forty other  companies   each    formed    on    some  special  invention in wireless.   When  the general amalgamation   and consolidation of interests took place-* not  only did all the patents of the allied  companies come into the possession of  United Wireless,  but also-the services  of the inventors. An expert committee  of these men went over the accumulated patents and pickedout the best  features of each to be embodied in an  entirely new system���������the one  that is  now used by the United Wireless and  that puts it so far ahead of all others  in point of efficiency that so far as doing   things    is   concerned,  they can  scarcely be said to have a rival.   Thus  there are piled up i'n the junk attic of  the United Wireless   Co.   at   Jersey  City,  tons of apparatus   that would  work more efficiently to-day than the  best that Marconi has got,  but they  are useless to United  Wireless/ because they have  been superseded by  better.  A distinctive feature of the United  Wireless Co's. system is its simplicity  and with this simplicity conies the advantage not only of less cost to manufacture, but loss liability, to get out of  order.  The factory is subdivided into a  number of departments in each of  which a certain class of work is done,  and the actual .manufacturing is'embraced in several departments each doing certain work which goes to making up the complete apparatus.  Concluded on Page* Four.  .Occasionally but at long intervals a  bad Indian deifies British justice as  administered in Canada, iind strenuous  measures must be taken to bring them  under. Not since the bombardment of  "almighty voice" in a'clump of-timber  on' the plains' by theN.W! M. P. has  there been any very serious trouble:  . At present there is a very bad Indian  in Northern British Columbia named  Giin-a-noot, that should engage the  attention Of the N. W. M. P:, and as a,  detachment went north last week it is  hoped that they will be employed in  gathering in this unruly Indian, for  his defiance of the law is going to have  a bad effect upon other Indians.  The Victoria Colonist has the  following 'paragraph hi reference to  the'situation :  '-Assurances   were   received    from  Northern   British  Columbia   only  a  week ago to the e-ffect that the unrest,  which has prevailed among  the Indians was at an end.   Recent reports  throw doubt upon this assurance, and  we can'only express the hope that the  disquieting story told by the Rev. A.  E. Green has reference, to conditions  as,they were rather than to those'now  existing.     Mr. Green thinks that any  abatement of the restlessness' may be  due  to  the unwillingness of the  Indians to  precipitate hostilities during  the summer,   when they can be reached by an outside force.   The suggestion has been 'made  that a   detachment of the Mounted Police should be  sent to  the scene of trouble, and perhaps such  a course   would  be advisable,  if a satisfactory  arrangement is  not reached.     The provincial government is  charged with the duty of preserving   the peace and administering  justice in  the province,  but the Indians are  the. wards  of the Dominion  government,  so that both authorities  might properly combine in preserving  the peace.     As every one knows  the  Royal Mounted Pejlice have had exceptional experience in work with Indians.     We are strongly of  the opinion that a determined effort should be  made   to   capture    Gun-a-noot.,     A  gentleman, who knows  the Northern  Indians well, says that  the fact that  this man  has been able so far  successfully to defy the. authorities, has  produced an exceedingly unfavorable  effect upon the Indians, whereas his  prompt capture, trial and punishment  j would produce a very salutary effect.  :: For the first time in its existence  ;the*s Nickel Plate mine has turned out  a base ball team that is ''prepared to  try conclusions with Hedley or other  local points. The most it ever did before in that line was to contribute  one or two players occasionally to fill  out the ranks of a Hedley nine, but  this time they manned the whole ship  from stoke-hole to bridge and didn't  have to go borrowing to do it either.  The reason of the change is that  owing to the exploratory work which  has been in progress up there since  early spring the diamond drill crews  that were brought in by the gentlemen who have had the mine under examination, com prised some "good uns"  in the' baseball line. These showed  that they had been "diamond drilling"  in more ways than one, and when they  had supplied a battery and filled up a  few of the more important positions  on the line up, they made up the rest  by picking out the likeliest huskies  among the rock blasters,      c*  When the challenge came down the  hill for a match with the mill and the  town, baseballers down here concluded that the chaps up in the ether were  getting chesty, but they were scarcely  prepared for the surprise that was  sprung when the Nickel Plate nine  came down with their friends for the  game on Sunday afternoon, and particularly so after they got limbered-up  or acclimatized and started in on the  swatfest.  Where Hedley fell down most was  at the bat, and the paucity of effective  clouts on their part was possibly due  more to weakness at the bat than to  sensational pitching on the part of  Patterson for the hill-men, although  he threw a ball that might also'.have,  kept more proficient*-' battersguessing;  Ross Allen and Homer Maclean shared  the pitching for Hedley,, and did a  little fanning at times to mix in with  the punishment they; received and M.  Het'rick caiight a tidy .game behind  the bat for Hedley as did also Knowles  for the Nickel Plate.  The gcime was not quite so one-sided  as the' score would indicate, but that  is not saying what the Nickel Plate  battery might have done if the game  had been closer, and neither can it be  said that the total runs obtained by  the winners was diie theni, for they  had to thank indifferent fielding on  the part of their pppoiients'forseveral  runs that would not otherwise have  got over the home plate.      '  Altogether the game was clean and  agreeable and was enjoyed by spectators and particularly so because of the  fact that both sides had a full right to  every man they played, and ho advantage was taken, by ringing in outsiders.  The game was umpired by J. Collins  anel as both sides complained at times  of getting the worst of it, in decisions  given, it may be taken for granted  that neither side had any material ad-  TRACK COMING ALONG  Steel Crossed the Ashnola Early in the  Week���������Now Nearirig- Second  Crossing  There has been no let up on the part  of the track-laying, pile-driving and  bridge-building between here and  Keremeos.  The bridge at Ashnola held-up the  track-layer for ���������ibout a week until the  piles could all be driven, but this was  completed on  Monday.  Meanwhile the second steam pile-  driver was at 'work" oil;.--the'second  crossing and they are now almost  through with that.  On Twenty-mile the horse-driver  piled the face of the high dump on the  eastend, and finished up thereon Saturday when it was moved to the west  end and it is expected that this will be  completed by Saturday night.  The piles for the trestle across the-  bed. of the; creek will be driven' by, one  of the steam drivers which is expected  here in a few days, and the hoise-  driver will move on to the dumps of  the third crossing at Dr. Whillan's  ranch.

Jack Smith, who was working for  Pleasance and McDonald on the piling  contract has a narrow escape from  death on Monday morning'last. He  was driving a team up the mountain  and part of the road was the shute  where the logs- come down. He had  been told that no logs would be sent*  down until he came back, but through  some misunderstanding: several logs  were let go too soon. Smith could  have escaped easily himself, but in his  anxiety to save the team he stayed  too long, for one* of the logs struck a  whiffle tree and swung around and  struck him. He was knocked out' at  the time and had to  town; but has since  ciehtly to go about.  be brought into  recovered suffi-  TO CELEBRATE LABOR DAY  Sport-  Committee   are Busy Preparing  the Programme  vantage on that liead.

London, July 19���������Arnold While in  the Chronicle agrees with "Lord  Charles Beresford that the Unionist  government did wrong in handing  over the naval station and fortress at  Esquimalt, B. C, to Canada, and that  Canada did wrong in leaving guns  rUsting on the ground. Beresford,  in speaking at a meeting convened by  the London chamber of commerce,  again advised the overseas .states to  provide for commerce protection by  re-establishing the oversea, Pacific  station.  The fact that costly steel wire-  wound guns have been left exposed  to the weather in Esquimalt and utterly ruined has long been an open  secret. Tho gems were landed shortly before the Dominion of Canada  took over the manning of the fortress.  They have never been mounted, according to all reports, and the establishment at Esquimalt would, in any  event, be much too small to man the  guns even if they were mounted.  Exact information as to the actual  state of affairs has been difficult to  obtain owing to the necessary secrecy  which surrounds the holding of such a  fortress -at Esquimalt, but the authorities have never even claimed that,  the present garrison is efficient.  ���������-:-:;?!,:'  trM  '.:<p.

House of Lords which resulted
in 103 in favor  and 123 against

that of time.    Even the leading

and the ever-pn-'.M'iil elrea-l llint the
Inn libit' scenes of fifty : years ago ni;iy
he* re-enacted causes deeper inieiest lo
attach to tho work of missionaries on
those foreign fields.
At times there bus been a disposition' to blame some of the missionaries
for unwittingly arousing ambitions
and animosities in the minds of natives
to such extent that it is now getting,
beyond their control, 'unci possibly
some of tbein are to blame. Nevertheless, the*''.majority e.f these foreign
workers are men of discernment, who
if they are.'not able to. fully fathom
the Aryan mind can nevertheless locate the -true cause- of oriental 'backwardness and recognize the futility
and real danger of granting powers
and responsibilities that these people
are not yet fitted to -bear.
Rev. D. P. Smith, who is well known
in the Similkameen where he.was
stationed three years ago, thus speaks
of conditions in the Indian Mission
field.    .
"The year, October 1st, 1907 to
September tf'lth, 1908 has been.spent in
Neemuch. The first half of the year
was devoted to the study of Hindi and
Urdu in preparation for the First
Year examination. That event took
place during the first days of March
and at the March meeting of Council
the kind examiner reported that the
various candidates had produced the
required amount of knowledge for
passing the first year's examination.
"During the year services have been
held in the Church at Neemuch. in the
morning in Hindi,  in   the evening in
English.  In the end of April, the Rev.
J. S.  and Mrs.MacKay went to the
hills and the Church services and the
care of  the Congregation  was   committed to me.. The preaching in Hindi
although  very imperfect  was an intense, pleasure to me.     The English
service  has been a'continual pleasure
to us.   Sometimes  only  our Mission
staff   attend,    sometimes,    however,
people   from   the   railway   and   the
Cantonment come to worship with us.
In theCantonrnentBazaaron Friday
evening services are held.    Before this
service  a meeting  is  held   with   the
workers,   after   which   sometimes   in
twos we go  into different parts of the
Bazaar and preach  to the people who
gather around.   Sometimes the people
gather in   front of  the Mission School
and there  we preach  to  them.    The
most interesting   part of   the bazaar
work is the personal dealing with men
in their own houses anel places of business.    Man j' men freely  acknowledge
that the  Christian religion is the best
and that they are:  sinners and  even
that they  believe   that   Jesus   is' the
Saviour of the world,  also  they say
that in   their religion there  is nothing
to satisfy.     They say,   "What can we
do? Wei are'afraid .and we know what
our caste  people will do,   if we accept
"The visiting of towns and villages is
of intense interest to a stranger. But
the greatness of the work becomes oppressive. During one week in visiting
three places this is what we found. In
Kesarpura a village of 8,000 people we
found not one Christian. In Mimbha-
hera a place of 10,000 people the same
is true. In Mandasanr a, city of 80,000
people not one man or woman is found
who openly professes Jesus as Lord.
The greatness of the undertaking is
past description. But we undertake
in the name of the Lord of Hosts and
India's hope is in His son.
"All Missionaries realize that one of
the most important parts of our work
is the circulating of the Scriptures. In
order to do this we buy new Testaments and Gospels. The New Testament, large size, is sold for 12 cents,
small size S cents and the Gospels for
4 a cent each. During the past six
"months I have sold 200 Gospels. When
the people pay a. little for a book they
take care of it and instead of tearing
it lend it to a. friend to read.
"Tn speaking of the people of India
the close distinctions are constantly
pressed upon us. lint for us only two
classes exist, the Christian and non-
Christian. In these two classes all are,
comprehended, and in the Christian
all classes are about equally represented. In the non-Christian community
between the low and high castes there
is no possibility of'communion but instead a constant struggle and much
hatred. In the Christian community
differences, physical and educational,
moral and spiritual still remain but
the distinction of castes "has fallen
away. Its place has been taken by a
sense of brotherhood and fellowship.
The low and the high, I he rich and the
poor, have a common stahchird, a
common example and a common Lord
and Saviour.
With every discouragement we have
also encourageriie.nt. The* people 'are
ever ready and waiting to hear the
Gospel. In many hearts there is a deep
sense of sin. They tell iis that they
believe in Jesus, but not openly bc*-
ea use -of fear of their caste people. In
many cases sinful practices have been
abandoned,-'but the tiring that seem
to be lacking is the courage of their
conviction to confess Christ before,
men. The conviction of the missionaries who know Central India best
is .that if all the secret disciples would
confess openly their faith, a Christian
community would be formed that
would be a mighty power for good.
May God give courage."

She was mot at' Nelson by Mrs Arthur  Clare, who accompanied her to  Hedley.  Constable Max Ewart and Charlie  Low, of Keremeos, passed through  Hedley last week with a band of  horses for the coast by way of the  Hope trail.  Mr. Parsons, of Olalla, superintendent of the Olalla Co. was in town last  week. He is taking an. outing for a  week or two and is spending it in the  hills about the head waters of Twenty-  mile.  W. D. McMillan, principal owner of  the Apex group now under bond to  the Colonial Gold Mining Co. spent  Sunday in Hedley and left for the  mine on Monday morning before returning to the coast.  Mrs. Critchley returned last week  from Princeton where she was nursing  her sister-in-law, Mrs. Posser, who had  been ill. She brought back her brother's  child and will care for it here until the  mother is well again.  On Tuesday Dr. McEwen was called  in to .assist in locating the bullet,  when he and Dr. Whillans gave it  careful examination and found that it  had shattered one of the bones while  the bullet itself had been broken up.  A. K. Anderson is in the rush for a  share of the 750,000 acres of reservation lands to be apportioned in the  Couer d' Alene and Montana this  week. His Hedley friends wish him  success in getting hold of the land  he wants.

The Ledge says that negotiations  are under "way for settlement of the  strike between the B. C. Copper Co.  and its employees, and if reached on  the basis that is sought, the settlement is more likely to prove permanent than anything here-to-fore  made.  . Mr. and Mrs. H. A. McGibbon arrived in Hedley on Monday, and they  like the appearance of the town so  well that they are likely to become  permanent residents. They hail from  California, but were originally from  eastern Canada, where Mr. McGibbon  was engaged in the manufacture... of  dynamite.  It was a relief to the Labor Day  Sports Committee when the Miner's  Union took over the arrangements for  the big Ball on the evening of Gth  September, and those who remember  the last Ball given by them on Easter  Monday 1908 will know that this is a  guarantee of the very best kind of a  time at the coming dance.  F. Pyman, of Princeton, who opened  a jewellery store there in March leaves  this week to return to Enderby.    His  successor in  Enderby made a sensational wind-up of a short career when  he managed   to land  himself in   the  coop for  burning his  store for the insurance, amounting to something over  $2000.   Mr.  Pyman will   be'missed in  Princeton where he had already made  a lot of friends,   and identified himself  with all movements for the advancement of the town.   In fact it was that  trait   of    public-spiritedness    which  made his friends in Enderby interest  themselves in   endeavoring to get him  back there.  An Incident Which Goes to Show How  Mole-Hills Can Become Mountains  for   the   Knockers.  There is tin old adage which says  that "'the most sticks are generally to  be found under the best apple-tree."  That being so ������he incident of last  week's attack upon United Wiieless  Telegraph Go's stock by the local  knockers, might also be made, to show  how a knock when analyzed is really  a boost. A newspaper paragraph appearing in the Spokesman-Review,  and also in Montana papers was eagerly pounced upon by Hedley knockers  of the stock, some of whom had to go  to the trouble of clipping it out and  hawking it about and in some instances adding a few lies to it of their  own manufacture.  The paragraph reads as follows :  "Missoula, Mont., July 9.���������Late tonight Sheriff Davis Graham arrived  in Missoula, bringing Dr. L.R. Leland,  fiscal agent for the United Wireless  Telegraph and Telephone Company of  Seattle, with him. Dr. Leland was  arrested in Billings on a complaint  sworn out by C.W. Christman, a local  mining promoter, who charges Leland  with obtaining money under lalse pretenses. Tn the. specific complaint hied  with the county attorney recently  Christrnan claims he paid Leland $1250  for stock in the United Wireless concern on the assertion of Dr. Leland  that the United Wireless concern  owned all patents on the wireless tele-  giaph and telephone excepting those  held by Marconi."  Now Dr. Leland, whoever he may  be is not  the  fiscal agent of United  Wireless, for  that position  is held by  Geo.  H.  Parker,  of  Seattle,   and   if  Leland    was    selling    the   stock   in  Montana,   he   was   either a general  agent      or     sub-agent      under   the  Seattle    office.       As   the   law    supposes     a     man     to     be     innocent  until he is proven guilty,  this man  Leland may or may not have made  the representations which he is accused  of.     His   accuser is  described   as   a  "local mining promoter."   Does that  circumstance and the fact that he is a  squealer make his name  one  to con-  jute by ?   Even if Leland did make the  representations he is accused of, and  his accuser  was stupid enough to believe what any man  of ordinary intelligence who knows anything about  the practice  in vogue in the granting  of patents,   should have known better  than to believe,  does that justify the  knockers in Hedley who comprise the  long and  the short, the  tutored  and  the untutored,  in taking  upon themselves to say that the stock is a fraud*  when  in their hearts- all  they know  about it is that they are kicking themselves that others in town bought the  stock for $20 and less per share, which  they cannot buy now for less than $30.  There are thousands .of patents issued  every year in every conceivable line  that are  of no  practical  value whatever,  and   United Wireless   are   not  buying such when   they already hold  all that they need  that are of value,  but    are     constantly    buying     new  patents of anything   in their line that  is an   improvement on  what they already have.     Leland,   if he said what  he is accused, of saying did what there  was no need for him to do ;   but there  arc some people  who cannot sell a $60  to be had on a BRITISH COLUMBIA FARM  in the British Columbia Southern; Columbia  and Kootenay and Columbia and Western  Railway Company's Land Grants.

Mrs. Benson was turning on an electric light in the rear of her husband's  ice-cream parlor when she met her  fate. She had grasped the brass part  of an electric* lamp and at the same  time stepped on part of the floor that  had been made wet by melted ice,  thus forming a short circuit.

Where They Make Wireless  Continued from Pane One  In the machine shop all metals are  worked up into their proper forms and  all the metal parts, from the smallest  , binding post and connections to the  heaviest castings, are turned out by  the mechinists employed therein.  The Woodworking Department embraces the making of boxes, cases and  all 'wood parts which enter into the  construction of and protection of the  completed apparatus.  The Transformer Department to the  ordinary mind appears most interesting, although it involves a long  series of most interesting operations,  including winding with thousands of  turns of copper wire graded in size to  the k. w strength, testing for resistance, boiling by electricity in insulating compound in vacuum, secondary  winding, etc.  The transformers when completed  have the wonderful property of "stepping up" an alternating current from  110 volts to about 50,000 volts, pressure. In each transformer about 75,000  feet* of fine copper wire is used and as  hundreds of transformers are completed each year, the amount of fine copper-  wire used in their manufacture will  run up into the thousands of miles.  The transformers manufactured by  the United Company, are standardized,  in capacities and arrange from :] to 20  k.w. The ordinary marine equipment  is usually supplied with 1 k. w. or 2  k. w. tr-informer. '���������.-���������"''  A depcirtment,- which, to many visitors is as interesting as the Transformer Department, is that in which  the "condensers are manufactured. In  this .department several styles of condensers are made, for different uses.  The Finishing and Testing Room,  where the receivers, tuners, transmitters, switches, etc., are assembled and  completed, shows great activity. Only  the best of mechanics and instrument  makers' are employed in this depart-,  ment and the accuracy, quality and  finish of the. apparatus, which comes  out of this 'department,' in not excelled,  by any manufacturing 'establishment  anywhere:  A large proportion of the floor- area  of all of the factories is taken up with  the manufacture of special "wireless"  work which is constantly being made  under contract for the various Govern-  mentsand GovernmentalDepartments.  The Repair Department, where  "usc-d" instruments which are shipped  to the factory to be put in first-class  order or overhauled, also present a  scene of great activity.  The three factories controlled by the  United Wireless Telegraph Company  produce approximately a million  dollars worth of "wireless" apparatus  per year. Some idea of the volume of  this business and the way it is growing may be obtained from the fact  that the working force in the Seattle  factory has increased over iOO per cent  since last December, and although  they are working over-time it is impossible for them to do more then fill  the orders that are coining in.  We still hold a few Jots on the Business Streets which we are  offering at the old prices $300 to $450 per lot, and we  have good Residential lots in nearly every part of the  town at prices ranging from $50 up to $250 per lot.  With the railroad rapidly approaching and new mines being  opened all around us you canriot expect to buy lots at  these prices much longer.  Better Secure Some Right Now, Before the Price Goes Up.
