The mill stuff and management of  the D. R. Co.. are adding to their  laurels month hy month in the amount  of ore being treated and in the closeness of the extraction. For the month  of June the tonnage put through was  4574 tons. The highest tonnage ever  put through in the* same month before  was in 1908 when 3829 was the figure,  so that the present record beats the  best ever done before; by 745 tons, and  in that month they lost about 0 hours  with a broken crank shaft.     While it  beats the highest June record by 745  tons, if beats the average June record  since 1905 by 1170 tons.  If this achievement was due to additional or improved equipment in the  milling plant over* what*, had existed in  previous years a certain amount of  allowance would have to be made, but  it has been done with precisely the  same plant and as all plants deterior*  ate year by year, it is reasonable to assume that the plant is more wrecked  and harder to keep in repair now than  it was in former years.  Another feature to be kept in view  and a very important one is that the  extraction .being made is much closer  than when the highest tonnage for  the month was put through before,  and instead of tailings going $3.00 and  over' per ton being sent down the  creek, all the tailings that have any  values in them worth looking after  are impounded, but now it is not uncommon to get the tailing losses down  so low for several days at a stretch  that it is not worth while attempting  to save them for* subsequent treatment  and they aro allowed to go.  The management and mill staff are  certainly to be. congra tula ted on this  showing and it is all the more to their  credit tliat they have done it before  the new equipment has been put in.  O. B. Smith Thinks Portland Canal District Much Exaggerated  THE NORTHERN SEAS  NEW CURE FOR CANCER  (Phoenix Pioneer.)  0. B. Smith, superintendent of the  Granny Mines, returned Saturday  from a trip of inspection to the Hidden  Creek copper mine at Goose Bay, Observatory Inlet, Portland Canal district. He was accompanied by M. K.  Roeers, of Seattle, who ownsa quarter  interest in the property and who was  one of the leading spirits in developing the famous. Nickel Plate mine at  Hedley.  The Hidden Creek mine.has $400,-  000 of development work done and  has splendid showings, the ore running up to 6 per cent, copper. ft is  advantapeously located for- mining  purposes and gives promise of becom-  i n b- a good prod irccr.  Mr. Smith did not become particularly enthusiastic over the reported  strikes at Stewart. He looks for- some  good mines in the district, but the re  ports have oeen grossly .exaggerated  and the strikes haye been largely  newspaper- dope. Very little real development work has yet been done on  any of the properties.  United States Disputes Canada's Title to  Hudson Bay.  IT WAS CANADA'S DAY  Canada Cut Two Good Notches in The  Record of British Sports on  ������������������    July 7th.  Ottawa, July 2.���������A reason for the  recent appointment of Hon. J. C,  Patterson to be a commissioner tei  investigate the title's of ownership to  lands in the Far North may he found  in a report which has reached Ottawa  to the effect that the United'States  government has given instructions to  its citizens who are engaged in the  whaling industry in the northern  waters to disregard Canada's claim to  sovereignty there.  For the last few years the United  States whalers have willingly been  paying licenses to the Royal Northwest Mounted Police on behalf of the  Canadian government, and it was  understood that they had a certified  claim of the Canadian government to  a control over the -.northern-fisheries.'  Now, -'..however, it is said that the  whalers who left New Bedford this  week for the north will be protected  by'the United States government if  they refuse to pay the licenses or  otherwise recognize the sovereignty  of Great Britain  in the northern seas.  Italian Professor Injects Serum Obtained  from Human Embryo.

It is possible, however that  the opposition may total 15 seats when  the final returns are in. The Liberals  are somewhat higher.

VANCOUVER APPLE SHOW  It is estimated hy Manager James  Roy, of the Vancouver Exhibition, to  be held August 15-20. that there-  are 80,000 Canadians in the state of  Oregon anel Washington alone, of  whom 10,000 are now on the Seattle-  voters' lists, 8,000 in Spokane and a  large number in Portland and other ot  the lesser cities. Canada's day at the  local exhibition is to be Tuesday, August 16th, and judging conservatively it  is thought there will be an attendance  of at least 100,000.  A .similar attendance is expected on  Friday, America's Day. when special  exclusions are to be run hy railroads  and steamship lines from all points in  those two states and on  Puget Sound.  Special sports and other features  will be provided for each of these days,  as for Labor Day, which will be celebrated by Vancouver and district at  the exhibition on .Saturday, August  26th, ji monster Labor parade and  celebration will take place on the  grounds on that day.  The Mayor of New Westminster  called down Dr. Spencer for saying that fight pictures would not be allowed to be exhibited in this province.  The Mayor denies the right of Spencer  to say what may or may not be done  in Westminster.  Hedley play-goers have had an enjoyable week of it in  the visit of the  Pringle Stock Co. which completed a  six nights' stand last night in Fraternity hall with the time-honored play,  "East Lynne."   The large houses that  were   out every   night during their  entire stay was evidence in itself of  the merits of the company;   but it is  only by hearing them in some of their  more     important    productions   that  one is able  to  understand why they  have been so successful  in  the larger-  centres.    This being the holiday season,  when the show business is almost  suspended in the  larger  towns,  companies that are well rounded out and  suited to the various parts of their repertoire find it advisable  to  transfer  their activities in the slack season  to  the  towns  that are off   the:    beaten  path rather than allow the members  of the company to get scattered, and  that accounts for the lengthened stay  of the Pringles in Hedley.   Their generosity in giving the lust three  nights  of their stay for the  benefit of the  Hedley hospital on a. percentage basis,  was appreciated by our  townspeople.  The  opening  play,   "The Convict's  Daughter," on  Thursday  night,   was  well  put on   and  demonstrated  that  the company is a good "all-round" aggregation in which the "under-study''  element has been pretty well eliminated.      "Heaping  the  Harvest"    which  held the boards Monday  night   was  a  more pretentious  anel stronger   piece  that was   more   after   the   old   style  drama and less tainted with the f'rivol-  ities of modernism.      fn   it  the;  company did  some  very fine acting and  showed what they could do.  The lines  spoken by the  young artist defining  bohemia were superb, proclaiming the  piece a classic   and   we-ll  repaid  any  lover of  the drama if he  had   heard  nothing else*; but all   the  other  parts  were well taken and the- acting of Mrs.  Pringle as the injured wife, Blender,  was    most    forceful    and    excellent  throughout arid   the  vivacity of  the  Irish girl was charming.  Penticton, July 9.���������On account of  the high income rax which is imposed  by^ the 'government upon all those  whose income exceeds -������3000, a large  amount of British capital is being sent  abroad and a considerable portion is  finding its way into Canada.  This statement was made by Mr.  Wilton Allhusen, the proprietor of one  of the largest and finest estates in  Devonshire, England. In conversation with a Province correspondent,'  British Columbia, Mr. Allhusen said,  was more in the public eye than any  other part of the Dominion,' but he  said there was.still it, vast number of  people in the old country who, practically speaking, knew nothing of the  great empire across the sea.  "This is a province of great resources  and possibilities," said Mr. Allhusen.  "But it is crying for labor. Without  labor it will be impossible to develop  the country.  Capital was also urgently needed in  British Columbia, he said but unless a  supply of labor can be counted upon  the Englishman with the small or  moderate fortune would hesitate, before coming to Canada to invest his  money.  "If he can not hire men to work for  him at a reasonable cost the small  capitalists would just as soon remain  in the old country," commented Mr.  Allhusen. "An English with money  does not wish to come out to this  country and do all'the labor himself.  If he is going to work between the  plow shafts he can doit as well at  home as here."  The following communication lias-  been sent the Saturday Sunset in reply  to its editor's apparent -indorsation of  an anonymous untruthful attack upon  the writer's personal honor. In over-  twenty years' experience as a newspaper publisher the writer has neve'i*  allowed any man's honor to be assailed anonymously, but there are others  who apparently observe a different  code of newspaper ethics.  The  alleg-  IRRIGATION CONVENTION  The    Western    Canada    Irrigation  Association will hold its fourth annual  convention this year at Kamloops, on  August 4th, 5th and 0th.      It is hoped  that  the residents of all parts  of the  province will be sufficiently inrerestecl  in   the subject of  irrigation   to   have  delegates present; and that in the Dry  Belt all those who  must prelum; lake  a more*  intimate interest will turn up  whether delegates  or  not.    The- program, which it is hoped will be; carried  out  in   full,   includes  papeis   by  Mr.  Newell,  chief of the  reclamation  department of the  United  Suites;  Clif  ford Sifton.   M.P., an enthusiastic advocate* of conservation; R. B, Bennett,  of Calgary,  anel  Chas  Wilson, K. C,  both of whom are experts on the legal  questions  connected   with   irrigation;  and  A. E.  Ashcroft,  of Vernon,  and  A. E.   Meighen,  of Kamloops,  on the  practical side as e-oiicorned with company  projects.    Other  recognized experts on different branches of the subject, will also be asked to prepare papers  for submission to  the convention, and  the discussion on all  these papers cannot but  result in benefit to   the cause.  Ca.pt. Bcrnier has sailed north on  the. government steamer bound for  the Arctic regions to be gone two year.  Editor Saturday Sunset  Dear Sir:���������My attention has been  drawn to an anonymous communica-  ation appearing in your paper assailing my personal honor in connection  with United wireless and au editorial  note by yourself on the same,  anonymous communication was  ed to have been sent you from Keremeos although one^ of your gambling  friends in Hedley whose enmity I  have been fortunate enough to incur  and who is the most active here in  traducing me in connection with the  unfortunate wireless agency has been  good enough to chucklingly suggest  that the anonymous letter of "Anxious  Inquirer" was written by yourself, although for. my own part I am pleased  to say that I don't think you did.   .  So far-as your editorial note on it is  concerned I have no objection  to it  whatever.     On  the contrary I agree  with it and as evidence of   my sincerity in  saying so I have   already asked  the permission of the Attorney-general  to allow me*to submit to him for his  inspection everv scrap of correspondence or other information  which I  have in connection with my wireless  agency,   for if  I am   guilty of   the  wrong-doinir of which I have been accused  in  your paper 1  am  not fit to  hold a commission as a Justice of the -  Peace under his department   and will  consider it my duty to resign.  In thus  agreeing with your note,  do not however imagine that I am fool enough to  believe that yeur note   was prompted  by   anything else on your part  than  personal animus towards myself.  Every share of wireless stock sold  by nit' was sold in perfectly good faith  and I never asked anyone to buy anything that  1 was not prepared to put  my  own  money  into,  and if United  Wireless is the swindle it is represented to  have  been  then 1   myself have  been worse hit than anyone to whom  I sold any of the stock.    Can you say  the  same  thing   in  connection   with  every financial concern  with   which  you have been connected  in the past  ten or twelve; years ?  Will you tell me  how   much stock  you subscribed  and  paid   up on,   in  one  concern   I  could  mention   that left ruin in its wake for  others  you induced   to go into it, and  can   you   view with equanimity that  wreck to which anv loss caused by me  in the:  sale of wireless stock is a  mere  drop in the bucket in comparison?     If  your skirts are as clean in all you have  done as  mine are  in connection   with  wireless,  then  and   not till   then will  you   he in  position to   adopt the lofty  tone  of censure and  suggestion  you  were  pleased to  take in the editorial  note;  appended   to   your   anonymous  communication.  Furthermore, 1 have yet tei learn of  a stockholder in Hedley who has said  an unkind word of me or blamed me  for their loss (if loss it is to be). That  has all been reserved for those who  have not five cents stake* in it, and  has been principally done by gambler  and irresponsible meddle!s. On t,he  other band some: of the heaviest buyers of the stock have been kind enough  te> come tome and assure me that they  attach no blame to rue. This kindness  on their part I appreciate very much  and I only wish J could make myself  think as they have expressed themselves. A. Mkgraw  Hedley, .TumeSth, 10.10.

Lord Crewe was.amongst the  first of British statesmen to  welcome the claim of the outer-  sea dominions to independent  nationhood and to be treated  not as subordinate states but as  co-partners. The motherland  has readily accepted tlie common-sense proposition that the  self-governing states should individually conduct negotiations  touching their own affairs and  in this way has shown her confidence? that they are prepared  to give adequate weight to all  genuinely imperial interests.  This indeed is tlie only way by  which unnecessary friction ciin  be avoided and responsibility  placed oil those to whom it  rightly belongs. It is a novel  experiment, pe-haps impossible  of accomplishment to-day, except in the ease of countries inheriting British aptitudes and  traditions.

Edwin Rodgers, of Seattle, came in  .'last week to spend ei few weeks in  Hedley. ,  A'number of offenders have been  gathered in at Penticton for supplying  Indians with liquor..  There were 109 teachers went on the  ��������� world-circling tripfrom Manitoba,  of  ��������� which Hedley contributed one. in Miss  Macpherson who accoiiipanieii the ex-  cursion.  Mr. and Mrs. Farrell, of Princeton,  caine down last week and Mis. Farrell  has gone into the hospital.    Mr.  Far-  ��������� rell is employed in the V. V. & E,  commissary at Princeton.  It is reported that Mr, Corrigan is  expected back in Hedley shortly and  tliat he found the boom at Hope to bo  due in a considerable degree to the  operations of real osteite men who aro  making every effort to attract attention to it.  Messrs. Fule-'he*rand Ericson return-  oil on Monday from Spokane where  they had  gone with Pete Stein whom  . they left in the hospital there. Before  they left the doctors had performed  an operation on the leg and were  hopeful of recovery in about four  months. .  Penticton is considering the advisability of purchasing a piece of lake  front to  give to the Kettle Valley for  . a depot and wharf site. The company  are disposed to make .'Penticton  a di-  - visional    point   if  they.,are  liberally  ���������dealt with and it often pays communities to be liberal when there is a quid  pro quo.  Bull-dog Brown is interesting himself in yetting up a mineral exhibit  from the valley for the Vancouver  and Victoria exhibitions, and to be  taken east for a permanent- exhibit  after tho coast shows are over.. The  ���������effort on his part is laudable and he  should receive all possible assistance  in it.  H. H.  Messenger with his wife and  Mr.     Creel man      is     expecting    a  visit shortly from  Mr. Brooks, president of I he Redeemable Trust Co;, of  Boston, and  important results are expected   to follow.     It is:  to'-'be hopeel  that he  will fintl  things to his liking,  and as he has been   signally successful  in his in vestments -elsewhere,, there is j  good reason to entertain the hope that |  lie* will make things go here by taking]  hold of the  Golden Zone and giving it j  a chance to see what that portion e>l!  the camp can 'do.  The Kettle.

If the directors can arrange  with the Great Northern to give special train service over there that will  cut out the Oroville ��������� stop-over .end afford a special rate it would help out  very much to ensure a good attendance from this valley.

Riding down a steep hill after cattle his  horse lost his footing and went down.  The arm that received the worst injury was the one that was shot a few  years ago. It is hopeel that- no permanent trouble 'may result from the  mishap.  The Penticton Press has changed its  name to the Penticton Herald and the  new editor of die paper, H. 31. Blake,  is giving that town a taste of what a  local paper should he and what it can  be when the; people accord it a. loyal  support. Last week's issue of the  Herald was a. good number and if that  style and pace is kept up the people of  Penticton will have no cause to complain on the score, of the local paper  ���������doing its share to help on the town.

Victoria, June 1-30.���������Prairie chickens  foi; the first time may'lawfully be shot  in any part of the province during  October. Quail shooting becomes  permissible in Cowichan, Esquimalt,  Saanich and the island districts from  Oct. 1 to. Dec. 31, and duck, snipe and  geese on Vancouver Island and the islands adjacent from Sept. 15 to Feb-  28,  and on  the   provincial mainland  from Sept. 1 to Sept. 2S. The sale of  these birds will only be allowed hereafter, however, during October and  November, market hunting having  during late years visibly reduced the  fiocks of these migratory waterfowl.  Deer- shooting on Vancouver Island  and the adjacent islands opens Sept.  15, continuing until Dec. 15, but no  sale being allowed. Elsewhere  throughout the province, excepting in  the Queen Charlottes, the open season  for deer is from Sept. 1 to Dec. 15, the  seile of venison on the mainland being  allowed from Sept. 1st to Nov. 15th  only. Kaien Island iind the game  preserves of Lillooet and East Ivootenay are specially and specifically exempted from the provisions of this  minute of council.  It has been decided to open pheasant shooting in Cowichan district,  where most of the shooting is by owners' permission or invitation and sub  ject also, to'certain municipal regulations, on October 1, the season extending to December .3.1. In the electoral  district of the islands, excluding North  Saanich, pheasants will be legitimate  spoil of the fowler dining October  only. No pheasant shooting is to be  permitted on the mainland, in Esejui-  nmlt or in North Saanich, as it is the  intention of the government to put out  during A.ugust in these sections some  1500 chicks of an imported American  larger and stronger breed, for the improvement of the strain of the Vancouver Island birds, which latterly  have showed deterioration from inbreeding.  Grouse shooting is to be allowed on  Vancouver Island and in the constituency of the islands from September  15 to December 31, the season thus  being advanced a fortnight in order to  meet the general desire for uniformity  in the shooting season. The opening  of the grouse season on the; Island on  September 15 is genera 1, but for the;  fact that diminishing willow grouse  may not this season be shot in Cowichan. On the; lower mainland both  blue, and willow grouse may be shot  from October 15 to December 31,  while the sportsmen of Pernio and  Cranbrook districts may also enjoy  for the; first time an open season for  grouse during Octobe;r only. For all  the rest of the mainland the; open season for grouse shooting extends from  September 1 to .December 31.  GEO. KIRBY  Notary Public.
