For the third time since they won  the Minto cup lacrosse trophy from  the Shamrocks in 1008 the Westminster hicrosse team have been called on  to'defend it. The first attempt to take  it from them they did not regard seriously. On that occasion the aspirants  were supposed to hail from Regina  but the team was a composite affair  made'.up largely of ringers from eastern teams.".". These, however, were at  the disadvantage of not having played  together, and the game they put up  was regarded".'by'. Westminster very  much as a joke. Next-came the Te-  oumsehs of Toronto, who had been the  winners, of the senior league penant,  but they also went under when match'  ed against the Salmonbellies.  Now the Montreats of the senior  league are after it and on Saturday  last the first game was played which  resulted in a victory for Westminster  by 10 goals to 4. Tho contest is not  decided on one match but consists of  two games and the* side scoring the  greatest, number of goals in the two  games is winner. With a lead of six  goals to the good there should not be  much danger of the c;hampions losing  it in the remaining contest which will  he played off on Saturday next.  LE ROI CLOSES DOWN  Rossland's Pioneer   Producer  Suspends  Operations Indefinitely  (Rosslancl Miner.)  For a considerable time past rumors  have been rife  that the Le.  Roi mine  was about to close down, and it transpires that there} was  good ground for  the statements.  It was in'March, 1909,  that the, famous Le Roi e:!osed down  primarily and  remained inactive till  October: ~ During that   period A;--J.  McMillan raised.additional funds with  which  to pursue a 7*iolicy of exploration  which  has been outlined.   Since  October this work has been carried on,  and, although shipments of ore have  been made periodically, no great success has attended the efforts or   the  management.     So it has  been finally  decided  to close down again, and although work may be   continued for a  little longer, another week will about  seethe end of operations.    What the  future  may bring cannot be said, as  nothing definite has,  as yet, been de-  Much has been talked about the  United Wireless situation by people  who know nothing vyhatever about  the company, its assets or its work.  It is a strange '..-'thing] that the freer, a  people, are believed; toJjecotne the;  more power they give their governments to tyrannize Over them arid  trample down individual rights, even  to the extent of allowing them to pass  laws. which will, prevent those who  have suffered . wrongjat the hands of  the government from, getting redress  for those wrongs in the courts of the  country.  If the plain statement sent Out last  week to stockholders from the..head  office of United Wireless is all true  and the standing cif the company in  comparison with other concerns which  have sprung up niushroonilike, without assets and without business, is as  represented, then the United States  governnient owe the people an explanation why they allow other wireless concerns that have practically'no'  assets and.no business to go unmolested and jump on a concern .that by  their cjwn figures they admit has 74  stations on the American continent  against-27 of all either nine wireless  concerns combined, anel against four  owned by the Marconi people which, is  really the only one of- the nine which  has any standing.  If we knew what corporate concerns  in the United States are,most interested in the wrecking of United Wireless  anel how far they could go in the purchase of United States officials, keeping their tracks covered all the while,  we would be.in belter position to un:  derstand what has happened and  why. The* tyranny of corporate influence in the United States as revealed in the writings of Tarbell, Law-  sou, .Lindsay and.others-gives a. fair-  clue.  Below we publish .'a- letter received  by a Hedley stockholder from George  H. Parker of Seattle, which deals with  some of the lies that have got into  the press concerning this matter, and  that were doubtless arranged for by  the interested* wreckers:  With    Present    Railway    Connections  Okanagan and Similkameen  is out of it.  One result of the cempaign for advertising the Pacific Northwest as a  summer resort country will be noticed  this month, when an excursion of several hundred people from Los Angeles | the world.heavy rains fell  RAIN FOR MANITOBA.

The Southern Pacific's-excursion freim California is one  of the first results of this   campaign;  The   excursionists   .will   come   north,  starting July 25, over the Southern  Pacific  to  Portland,   thence   by   the*  Oregon  .and  Washington   to Seattle,  where; Canadian Pacific boats   will be  taken to Victoria, and .Vancouver. The  rest of the. route lies over the Canadian Pacific to Revelstoke, southward  on Lake Kootenay and by rail to Spokane, and via the  new North   Bank  road to Portland,  where  the   homeward journey starts..    This trip ought  to give the Californians a fine idea of  the Pacific  Northwest, and  should be  the forerunner of much  travel northward in this and other .summer seasons.    Just as California is the winter  habitat   of iiuuiy   people:   from   the  North  west,  this country should  be,  and in time will be the summer resort  for Californians.  From Winnipeg to the western boundary, anel from Emerson to Darrphin,  practically the whole of the province,  there was more or less rain. ,  ���������It was still mining and cloudy at  9;30 o'clock this morning in many sections of the province. . A cool breeze  is blowing, and the temperature is GO.  ; Crop conditions are enormously improved at the most critical period in  the se*ason's history.  A STRINGENT FIRE LAW    .  B.C.  Laws for.

The Hudson Bay Insurance Co. held  its annual meeting in Vancouver last  week, the shareholders from Manitoba  Saskatchewan and B. C. attending in  large numbers.  The company's board room was completely filled. The reports of the president, Mr. E. H. Heaps, and the general manager, Mr. C. E. Berg, were'  heard. These; gentlemen emphasized  the prosperous position which the  company has attained, commenting  upon the liberal dividend which is being paid, 10 per cent, on the authorized capital, and an additional three;and  one-half per cent, for the. first six  six months of 1910 on the capital paid  up. Many matters weie dealt with,  but the two outstanding feat-.ires of  the meeting were making arrangements for carrying on business under  the Dominion charter and the taking  over of tho Calgary Fire Insurance  Company and two other Insurance  companies in Alberta, the names of  which have; not yet been made public.  'With regard to tho Dominion charter, the directors have; take;n this step  to be able; to cope with the increased  amount of business which is expected  in the near future.  All the shareholders joined in the  debate, and expressed their pleasure  at the prosperity of the company, and  the untiring efforts of the officers.  The officers for 1910 were elected as  follows; .1. K. Berry, president; R. L.  Reiel, vice-president; Charles E. Berg,  managing director; directors, Messrs.  M. J. MacLeod. W. E. Knowles, Ii. E.  Anderson, A. G. Creebnnn, W. Loree  and T. A. Lvtlleton.  Dear Sir:  Yours, of July 4th received. There  has been nothing whatever' proven as  yet to the discredit of the United  Wireless Co.. or its officers.  I received a telegram day before  yesterday from my attorney whom I  immediately sent to New York after  learning the officers of the Company  were arrested, with instructions to  look up the matter thoroughly, stilting  that the Grand Jury that had been investigating since the 15th of June, on  the 30th of June had failed to return  an indictment and was discharged.  There is no question in my mind but  what the United Wireless stock is an  Al investment. . I have bought over  300 shares in the last ninety days, paying all the way from $20,00 to $30.00 a  share for it, from stockholders that  felt they had got to raise some money  at once  There; are;   always   two   side;s  to a  question.    As   to our dismantling stations and   selling  the apparatus   for  junk,   whoever   mack* that statement  made; a. statement that was absolutely  false;.     This   is  true:  when   we  built  stations here at first, we built several  stations for relay stations. Later when  we  put in   more   powerful   stations,  these;  relay stations   were   taken out.  For  instance,   we had a relay station  at Chehalis, and one at Klamath, two  towns   between   here   and   Portland.  These* stations were  put in wholly for  relaying. Later we built a more powerful station at St. Helens, close to Portland, anel we; don't need these stations,  we have; taken them out. It was strictly a matter ed" business,   and we felt it  was in the interest of the; stockholders.  Our   stations  at   Wenatchee,   North  Yakima and Everett   were; not paying  this summer,   wc; felt   they would not  pay until   husiness opened up this fall,  so we; have   taken the operators away  from those*  points, closed the stations  te*niporarily.      The  stations are then;  complete, ready as soon as we site; it will  pay. to open them up again.   Wo have  been   trying in   every  instance to use*  the  stockholders'   money  to   produce  the best results.  Charles  Camsell,  of the.  Geologic:-'!  Survey  who is engaged with a party  -on: the. upper Tulameeii- working out  the geology of various coal basins, and  in vestigatingplatinum deposits, is paying Hedley a visit this week making  further   examination   of  the  Nickel  Plate underground workings.    He left  work feu- his party which they could  do in his absence and as certain trails  which he will require  to use; .are being  deemed out he  took advantage of the  short off-spell to pay  the; visit to Hedley.   Since last he had em opportunity  to see the Nickel Plate a good deal nf  new ground  has been  opened up and  the information to  be obtained in an  examination  of it would  be  worth a  good deal to  him by way of verification and  amplification of former conclusions  arrived  at.     Mr.   CaniseH's  knowledge of Camp Hedley arrived at  as the resuit of careful competent examination and study  has  made him  quite enthusiastic as to the  possibilities of the camp, and he recognizes not  only the advisability but the need of  further examination anel work on the  part of the Geological Survey to deal  with the geology and ore bodies of the  camp as their  importance would warrant.     With regard to delay in the issue of the report and map he heed little  to say concerning it further than   to  express his  regret   that   it   had   not  come out sooner, and while  it is evident he  feels no  little char-gin   at the  position in which the delay has placed  him he can rest assured  that no one  here is disposed to attach any  blame  to him  for the short-coinings  of the  -Because he refused to leave a $3.50 a  day job for a day to fight forest firew.  when  called  upon by  a deputy stale  fire warden,  Charles Simon,  of North  Bend, is serving ten days in the county jail,   being the  first man  ever   imprisoned   for    that   offence    in    this  country.    The state law provides that  upon an emergency call from a deputy  fire-warden, any citizen may be called  upon  to help fight a dangerous fire.  The Washington Forest Fire Association is more active this year than ever  before in  its fight against destructive  forest fires,    Several small fires have  occurred already this season in Western Washington,  But the Association  and its  patrolmen and  the state officials are  on the watch  for each small  blaze, and hope to get through the dry-  season without   any disastrous  fires  'such as have   each   year   wiped   out  many thousands of dollars  worth of  fine timber.

DOING WELL AT BISLEY  Canadian Marksmen Giving Good Account of Themselves  printing bureau. Should the department clc*cide to undertake the additional work in this camp which is needed  it is to be hoped that they will be able  to spare; Mr. Camsell to perform it, for  no one is in position to do it as satisfactorily as he. On Monday he went  up to the Nickel Plate with superintendent Jones anel it is safe to say  that their inspection of the ground  opened up since he was last here,  would prove to be* to their mutual ,  advantage.  While there have been other years  when Canadian marksmen have distinguished themselves- by bringing  home the Prince of Wales prize and  also the King's prize, it is doubtful  whether the team as a whole have  ever done better than in the present  Bisley meet when one of them Capt.  Hart McHarg, tied the score with the  winner for the Prince of Wales prize*  and only lost it,by being counted out.  anel another, Sergt. Morris, took second place for the King's prize.  Perhaps more notable than either  was the work of Steele, who made a  new record on the grand aggregate.  The shooting of the team as a whole-  has heen particularly good find their  winnings in the prize list will foot up  a nice sum.  IMPORTANT  IMPROVEMENTS  Vermillion Forks Co.

Always sincerely yours.  Geo*. H. Parker.  Seattle. Wash., July 7th. 1910.  The management of the Princeton  Coal A*. Land Company, formerly the  Vermillion Forks Mining ifc Development Company, has decided to put  improvements of the most. uioel<;rn  character upon the property. It'is.  intended to install an up-to-date  screening system, also a compressor-  plant. With these; improveinents the  company will be in a better position  than ever to eater to the growing demand for Princeton coal. The approximate cost of the proposed improvements is between $70,000 and $75,000.  In addition to this an auxi.lia.ry company is being formed to supply the  town of Princeton  with electric light.

THE HEDLbV GAZETTE,,.TUJLY 21, 1910.  Town and District.  few  John Love of Phoenix spent a  d.-iys in tciwri  this week.  The '"-Grand Trunk Pacific- wants the  Dominion Government to build achy  dock at Prince Rupert.  Father Conan visited Hedley last  week and held service for members of  his church resident here.  Mrs. Brass was called to Colville last  week by a message informing her of  the serious illness of her brother.  Mr.   Emerson   Woodward    left on  Monday with his wife and family for  .'."   Alberta, where lie intends going farm-  "������������������'   ing' '  .   A baseball match was to have been  played on Sunday between- the���������-town  .������, and  the  Nickel  Plate,    but    it   fell  '���������& through.  The Great Northern engineers are  reported to be cross-sectioning the  line between Oroville and Penticton,  and contracts are to be let right away.  The temperature is going up more  evevy day, so are Estimo cigars���������in  smoke���������because they aro really good  goods. Bolls ejf Hedley has them; you  can buy one or five thousand1.  All interested in a Labor Day Celebration are requested lo attend a  meeting in the Union Hall on Friday  Evening, 22nd instatSp. in. A full  attendance is requested.  Mr. and Mrs. G. H, Sproule leave  this week for Nova Scotia where they  go to see Sir. Sproule's mother who is  ill. Mr. Sproule has obtained leave of  absence as constable and will be. gone  about three months.  Among the' patients Dr. McEwen  has in his railway hospital under care  of nurse Boucher is Andy Gray who  had his h*g broken a few days ago on  construction work above Princeton.  He is making satisfactory recovery.  Mrs. Boworman accompauied by  her neighbor, Mrs Brainard, of  Osoyoos Lake, came in by Thursday's  train to spend a short holiday with  her sister-in-law, Mrs. E. D. Boeing.  ' Miss Nichols, of Duluth. is also paying  a visit'with Mrs. Boeing.  If'Hedley is to have a Labor Day  celebration 'this year it is time they  were up find doing. The early .bird  has always been credited with the  first chance'-at the early worm and  very sooirftiow Labor clay for 1910 will  cease to be an early worm.  Every 'available rig in town was in  commission on Sunday: last for fishing  __ and picnic parties.    The day  was not  unpleasantly warm and the number of  choice picnic grounds along the river  to choose from made it easy to obtain  a suitable place.  Work has been in full swing now  for about ten clays on the Kettle Valley line at either end,'westward from  Midway and eastward from Merritt.  President Warren has been in Penticton several times latedy and a start  from that point is expected shortly.  While there has been no lowering  of the record-for a round of the golf  links lately, individual players have  been lowering their records for individual holes. For a considerable time  Mr. Jones was the only one who had  been able to do No. 1 or "pons asi-  liorum" in two strokes. Messrs Hineks  and Rolls have each made it in two  recently.  There hits been a good deal of local  fishing done lately both in the Similk  ameeii and in Twenty-mile. Tho fish  in the. latter stream are more plentiful, but a great many of them fire  under-size and have to be thrown  back. Some good large ones have  been taken out of the Similkameen  lately.  James Corrigan returned last week  from Hope where he had gone.three-  weeks ago, coming back by way of  Nicola. His son .Tack went on to Vancouver where he has obtained a position in the fire brigade of that city  and will be one of Vancouver's live  fire-fighting laddies.  John Gladden returned cm Tuesday  after a three months' stay at Vancouver where he had an opportunity to  watch the progress of affairs on the  coast. He certainly looks as if coast  air and coast fare agreed with him and  his Hedley friends were pleased to see  him back.  A railroad contractor, named ]\1 Melon the Oroville-Wcnatchec branc'h,  had an altercation with ;i laborer  named Dowe, about a whiskvy bottle  which he accused Dowe of stealing  from him. Miller struck Dowe wifh  his fist, killing hini, and now ho ha*.;  to defend a charge for murder. If  Miller had put some of the* .surplus  fist energy of which he appears to be  possessed into making dirt liy em the  grade, Ave would possibly have that  Wenntcheo connection a little sooner  than we are getting it.  The Dominion 'Department ot-..Mines  have issued a. new blue book of preliminary reports but apart from some  interesting notes by Mr. Camsell on  the Tulaineen and Reinecke on the  West Fork of. Jiettle. River there is  little of interest' in it for the people  here who have been -awaiting'so long  the map and report on this camp.  A species of grey caterpillar- with'  two brown flag poles in front and one  in rear, has made its appearance in  Hedley and is attacking the fir trees,  several of which they have already  .succeeded in killing. If the provincial'  buerologist knows the- proper plan of  campaign by wliich to get after them  the people here would like to know it.  Over in the Ivootenay the. govern-'  ment agent has withdrawn all clearing permits, and ranchers must wait  until the fall before being allowed to  use fire for clearing their lands. This  is a wise step and shows that the government are fully alive to the importance of using every endeavor to protect the timber resources of the province jroni destruction by forest fire*s.  The Pringle Stock Co. played in  Hedley on their last night of a six  nights' stand to the largest house of  the whole six, which is a very good recommendation as to .the satisfaction  they gave. The last three nights were  given on a percentage basis for the  benefit of the hospital through the  Ladies' Auxiliary which made the arrange* m cut and netted the Auxiliary  something over $28.00 as their share  of the net proceeds. The Priugles are  coming back in the fall when they  promise some new plays of special  merit.  The vigilance** of Capt. Eslabrook  was the means of saving the lives of a  party in a launch .-it Kelowna. When  the Okanagan was in dock at Kelowna  a launch came right up under, the paddle-box of1 the big steamer and stopped  there, , They were not noticed by the  mate who shouted all clear and the  Mgnal was given-the engineer to back  up when the lookout spied the launch  and by good luck was able instantly  to draw the Cunt's attention. In,a  flush .the order was countermanded in  time to turn oft* the steam which had  been applied. It was a narrow squeak  and should teach the man who ran the  .launch a lesson .he should remember  for the rest of his days.  The dry hot spell which set in about  three weeks ago has already shown to  a. marked degree the diminishing water-  supply anel last week it was necessary  to put the town on the low pressure.  The manogonient has requested users  to exercise all possible care in saving  Welter, and the practice of allowing  taps to run will have to be cut out, in  order that the hospital may have a  continuous supply. The hospital being at the highest point on the town  system would suffer under the low  pressure if users elsewhere over the  town were to display selfishness or  carelessness in letting taps run when  there is no need for it. The new supply from the auxiliary pipeline will be  connected up in a few days, but still  economy of water will have to be* the  watchword, henceforth for several  moons to come.  There has ..been a little flurry in land  during the   past  ten   days   and   the  mountains to the south of the  town  are receiving  the attention of land-  seekers.    Within the past year or two  there  has been  a pretty good  start  made at settling up the   vacant lands  up Sterling Creek,  and   over to the  east of the mountain upon wliich most  of the  Sterling Creek   locations   were  made was to  be seen a fine tract of  open  country which was  thought  to  be covered with an Indian reservation.  Ed Burr went over there taking a map  along and found  that the reservation  only covered ;i portion  of it and saw  also that  there* was considerable laud  south of it which was be-tter than that  covered  by the  reservation, and   it is  on this the locations  have been made.  The outlet for it  by wagon roac' will  be by way of Stealing Creek buta trail  can be  made from   Hedley which will  shorten the distance considerably. For  stock  raising,   grain  anel the  hardier  vegetables it is believed to be very desirable! land and those who have shown  their enterprise  in  talcing hold  of it  should pay  no attention whatever to  the  knockers    who are always   very  liberal    with   unsolicited   advice.     A  thriving  settlement up there* will be* a  good  thing not  only  for  those  who  have had the courage to take hold but  also fur the whole; town.
