Rodgers came in on Saturday  to visit his family Avho are summering  in Hedley.   A visit to this camp at the  present time should   bo productive ot  no small degree of satisfaction for Mr.  Rodgers  in view of the happenings of  the hist ten years of liis mining career  and particularly the* part of his experience; relating to this camp where** his  judgment' Avas called  in   question  so  seriously,    only  to be   vindicated   so  fully by time and the course of events.  Here his  Avork' was  condemned and  criticised, but many of his critics great  iind -small whose forte  Avas criticism  rather than  performance are   to-day  fast sinking into the bog of oblivion.  No matter whether they Avere big fish  like Winchell and J. Parke Channihg  or small fry like Lamb and Ross they  see to-day that they have a guess corning as to Avhiit happened them when  they ran  their little reputation applecarts   up   against  the   Nickel   Plate,  Hidden  Creek and Cananea in every  one of which M. K.  has managed  to  light light side up.     The late S. H. C.  Miner could truthfelly claim  that he  made Jay P.  Graves a rich  man  in  spite of   himself and  made manager  Hodges a smelter repuhition   in spite  of himself by the way he over-ruled  them  in   the   policy   of the   Granny  properties; and in guaranteeing' to the  Granby the amount ot their outlay'in  Hidden Creek for development sufficient to sIioav up $20,000,000 worth of  ore to induce them to take up a bond  for the purchase of an 80 per cent, interest in it for $100,000. M. K. has like  Mr.   Miner been   demonstrating   the  fact that the much   vaunted '"go" of  the Granby (with the  late S.  H. C.  Miner left out of it) is only after all au  elaboration of the  policy of timidity  personified.    As for the Butte partner  ���������ill'Hidden  Creek'who. not  only got  cold feet but entered an action against;  Mr.  Rodgers   Avhich   amounted to a  libel   the latter can uoav afford to be  niagnnniiiious*and allow him to Avith-  draw the suit as he did.  W. R. Meg.-iw, of| Vernon, came in  on Friday morning oil his auto, a big  touring Maxwell,* having'niade the run  from Vernon to Keremeos the day before. He Avas accompanied by his  wife and daughter, and they made the  run to Rock Creek.  .There appear to be no further  developments in the* matter of the  Kingston "case. Some, however. ;ire  disposed to derive a little crumb of  comfort from the assumption that if  the Quebec contingent are as niggardly in doling out the money to pay law  costs as they Avere for development of  the property the legal struggle Avill  not be particularly fierce.

The power plant also is being improved and increased. All the machinery Avas formerly operated directly by  water-power,  but electric motors are  now-being  installed everywhere.    A  360 K.   W.

By the addition oj three neAv  return tubular boilers the steam boiler  capacity  has been, increased from 250  to 700 horse-power.  , In spite of all the  changes that are  being  made there  has been  no interruption of the resrular milling operations,  and with ./the increase in   the  steam boiler capacity there will be no  necessity in;the future to close down  during  part of the winter, as was so  often clone when water was the only  motive power.

The extraction has, hbweyer, gradually increased, until at the present  time it is 93 per cent of the assay value of the ore.  Extraction of gold from the ores of  the Nickel Phite and Sunnysides mines  .began in June,.1904. From that time  up to September, 1910, or in a little;  more than six years these mines have  produced gold to the value of $2,741,-  277.28  Since the* completion ol* the field  work for the report on the HedleA'  mining district in September, 1908,  some development has taken place in,  the district, and this development has  a bearing on the theory advanced in  that report fen* the origin of the ore1  bodies. The ores .are therein stated to  be the result of contact inctamoi-ph-  ism, ;mcl the theory attributes their  origin to the intrusion through beds  of limestone of gabbro dykes���������locally  called andesite- emanating from a  main central stock. This intrusion  produced the primary ores. Secondary  enrichment was also supposed lo have  taken place in the surface zone by  downward -moving waters, effecting  concentration, where dams had been  formed by iinpcryiou  dykes. i ragged  skyline of  Recent ilevi'lopiiH-nt has done much  to ceintirni the theory that the intrusion of the gabbro was the pi unary  cause of ore- deposition, and where  new ore bodies have been found, they  have ahvays pioved to he associated  with thewhite gabbro. It is also true  however,   that many bodies  Continued, on Paprc Two  The Hidden Creek copper mines, located on Observatory Inlet, about 100  mile's, noith of Prince Rupert, B. C,  were discovered by one of the present  owners, M. K. Rodgers, during his association of fifteen years with Mr.  Daly and ,the Anaconda Mining Company. While examining a mining  property in that region, he noticed a  prominent red mountain some three  miles distant.. and suggested to the  prospector who was* with him that it  looked like the Haunting red banner  sign of a big Coppermine* and should  be investigated. The prospector later  located a number of claims on the supposed copper mine and then bonded  the property for $40,000 to Mr. Rodgers, Avho .acted on behalf of Marcus  Daly, and immediately started,development Avork. Shortly after this Mr.  Daly died. Through long years of  personal contact .-mil knowledge of his  ability, Mr.: Daly had grown to place  absolute confidence in Mr. Rodgers'  ���������judgment,'' but the Daly estate7! lacked  that knowledge and confidence, and  for that reason engaged one of the  most prominent mining engineers to  investigate this property and check up  Mr. Rodgers' work.*  ENGINEER CCVNDEMNS PROPERTY  This engineer condemned the Hidden Creek property saying it Avas a  "superficial deposit" and Avould not go  down, arid advised the closing down  of the property. This av.-is done, and  the bond forfeited. No amount of  contrary expert opinion could shake  Mr. Rodgers' belief that there was a  big copper mine. He had seen nearly  all the big copper mines of the world  and kncAv the "signs."  However, it takes a million dollars  to. develop a large  copper  mine,  aiid  The Kettle Valley Lines have just  awarded to Messrs. L. 31. Rice & Co.,  of Vancouver, a .contract for the construction of 40 miles of the main line  from Bull Creek to the Summit near  the headwaters of the west fork of  Kettle River. The same contracting  company has just completed the.grading of the section from Midway, in  the Boundary district, west to Bull  Creek, arid twenty miles of track have  also been laid. The distance from the  summit to Penticton is only 35 miles.  Mr. Ralph Smailes, a member of  L.- M. Rice & Co., was at the hotel  Vancouver to-day. He stated that the  work on the new section would be  rushed without delay. The next six  Aveeks Avill be devoted to establishing:  construction camps and shipping in  grading outfits.  The route of the railway is through  the Okanagan anel Similkameen districts, across the Hope Mountains to  Hope, near where the Fraser river-  will be bridged to provide a connection Avith tho C. P. R. Another section- connecting Avith the C. P. R. at  Merritt in Nicola Valley and extending south to the headwaters of the  Coldwater River on the Hope summit,  a distance of 40 miles, is under construction. The track has been laid for  over 20 miles.  dollars must go Avith the "sand." He  finally succeeded in hunting up another party and this time bought the  mine outright for $130,000.  All through these trying panic time-s  dear money had demolished the copper market, the development was  steadily pushed along, and the mine  opened up to a depth of 500 feet, proving one ore vein to be 125 feet and another which later developed to be 250  feet in Avidth of solid sulphide ore.  Rodgers' partner, who was not a. miner, could not stand for the financial  pressure. As the miners say. he got  "cold feet." He employed an expert,  avIio criticised the Avork and damned the property with false praise.  Rodgers begsred for another $25 000  for furtheu' exploration woik, but his  partner could not or Avould not put up  another cent. On the contrary he insisted on realizing his investment,  even at a. substantial loss.  HOW  UK  INTERESTED CAPITAL  It Avas   now up   tei Rodgers  to enter  into a new field of effort and one much  less to  his liking: to   leave his   beauti-  crriss-cuttino- > l"11'* '-'llgged Avestern mountains for the  rVmerica's financial  centre. Various financiers failed to be  convinced. He submitted the proposi  tion to the Granby people avIio at first-  turned it doAvn. Rodgers persisted,  and to pro\-c his faith offered to guarantee that the doing of the development Avork he outline's Avould justify  of "���������abbro I *���������������������������*��������� claims to the magnitude! of the  property.     This   Avas a  novel and un  usual proposition: a mining engineer  ready to absolutely guarantee  his belief.     He deposited with  the Granby  company $40,000 Avorth of securities  that were already earning 40 per cent,  on-their .par. value, as a guarantee covering cost of the development work he  outlined, Avith  the further guarantee  that this work Avould.'make it a big  mine.   The Granby people took an op-,  tion on  the 80 per cent,  interest he-  longing to Rodgers' associate for $400.  000, but Mr.  Rodgers refused  to sell  his own interest at any price.    Long  before his guarantee aa'.is expended the  deA'elopment work "put in  sight," as  they say 3,000,000 tons of self-fluxing  copper ore, Avith a gross valuation of  more than $20,000,000, and the Hidden  Creek copper mines become a part of  the Granny's company's holdings, giving to them a large supply of sulphide  self-fluxing ore, Avhich  means practically the control of copper smelting on  the Pacific coast.  M. K. Rodgers has again vindicated  his former employer. Marcus Daly,  avIio had for so long trusted hirn and  Avho Avas..ahvays looking for the right  kind of "sand."  METEOROLOGICAL.

Montreal appears to have made the most strenuous kick about omissions and with'  good reason. One section of St. Denis  ward Avith a population of 400 Avas  missed altogether. In Hedley there  were households that Avere missed and  the complaint appears to be general.  'Kither the plan of work hail been  poorly laid out or the main object,  which should lie primaiilv the speedy  and accurate counting of ��������� noses, has  been lost sight of in the desire to compile cumbersome statistics.  ���������   * *!. T  general   conclusions from   them.    The  majority  of the ore  bodies now'being  worked do  not show  any evidence of  secondary 'surface enrichment and appear to contain only the primary'ores,  Which fire;  the le-sultof  contact nieta-  inorpliisni.     This   may ' be-taken   as. a  reason   for   ene.eiuragenient   to. mine  owners, for it indicates that sec'onilary  enrichment is not  necessary for  the  formation of commercial ore bodies in  this* e:anip.     It suggests at   the same  time, that ore bodies will be  found to  persist  to depths   greater   than   was  first  supposed.    Both.Of these factors'  go to lengtiiem the probable? life* of the  existing mines,   while they tend to increase the probable number of yet undiscovered ore.  bodies occuring in this  camp.  It is true that the average grade of  the ore nenv mined has decreased  slightly with the Avorking out of those  ore bedies that Avere near the surface'  and did show evidence of secondary  enrichment, but this decrease has been  so slight that there is still a considerable margin of profit in the mining of  these ores. The -grade of the ore* now  mined averages about $12, "while the  cost of extraction is in the neiglibor-  hood of $5 per ton.  The lowering of the grade of the ore  Avilh depth has been accompanied by  a slight change in its character. The  gold now mixed is liner and is more  intimately mixed Avith the arsenopy-  rite*. and is not so readily extracted by  amalgamation. This change, .hoAvever,  has-been'met.by various changes in  j the treatment, and so successfully has  this been done that a higher percen-  tage of the assay value'of the ore is  now recovered than was formerly  done with the more easily reduced  surface ores.  In view of the fact chat the surface  zone* has been passed through, and no  great change in treatment has become  necessary lo meet the change in character of the ore, it is not likely that  any radical change, such as the'smelting of the* res, will ever have to be resorted to in the future as depth in the  mine increases.  [The- matter of Nickel Plate ore val-  ues with depth is dealt Avith editorially  in our issue of 13th in which it is  shown that Mr. Camsell is falling into  aslight error in this���������Eel.]  THE  OF  1911  North America  By his conduct  in Nelson last week  when he dragged in the private affairs  of Martin Burrell  into a discussion  of  reciprocity    Minister Templeman furnished an apt explanation of why Liberalism in British Columbia is so much  discredited under  his  leadership and  prominent followers like Jardine have  to resort  to   the  extreme   action    of  using fists.   Mr. Templeman said in his  Nelson spei'ch  that the movement for  reciprocity  was  instrumental in  Mr.  Burrell  selling   his   ranch   in   Grand  Forks  for $10,000 more  than  he  was  offering it for be-fore  the  epiestion   of  reciprocity came up.     Mr.   Burrell in  his letter of reply appearing in the Nel  s in News  which had  published   Temple-man's speech,   points  out   that  in  .Mr. Templeinan's   statement concern  ing tin.- mater   there were no h'ss than  three untrutns.     .Mr. Burrell  rebukes  him   for the bad taste displayed   in referring  to  a  private  matter   of  that-  kind   at all     and  points  out that  if  Minister Templeman cannot be trust-  e*el te> ascertain the truth  of his statements  in even the most commonplace  matters   how little attention  need   be  paid to anything he  may  have to say  on   more important  affairs.      Truly,  Avith such  men   touring  the   country  as  cabinet ministers   and  professing  le) enlighten  the electors   on   public  e-ucstions  there  is  no   further proof  needed    that  the  government Avhich  Avould  make cabinet   timber foi- the  Dominion House  out of men   with  no  more  fitness  than   he  has displayed,  has outlived its usefulness.

Mr. McGregor is  stationed at Nelson and is busy organizing and directing .a force to look  ���������after the the reservation of the forest-  wealth of British Columbia.  T. Hansen when in Hedley last week  informed the Gazette of very gratifying progress on the Kettle Valley  line. The track is ballasted to a point  about four miles above Rock Creek;  the grade is completed several miles  above Wo.stbridge and mostly done  between there and Bull Creek, beyond  wliich several gangs are working as  far up the West Fork as Peanut Point  which is within 12 miles of Beaverdell.  Road Supervisor II. A. Turner was  in town last week accompanied by  Provincial Bridge Inspector Haney  ���������who is making a trip over the province. Similkameen riding has prob-  ���������ably about as great a number of bridges to its road mileage as the average  ���������constituency if not more, as there fire  several pretentious streams in the riel-  iing. The West Fork of Kettle Rivet-  Rock Creek, Similkameen river at  various points, Twenty-mile Creek,  Beaver Creek near Penticton and various others have been bridged at several points. Nearly all of these have  ���������come since the present representative  went to the legislature. The bridge  over the main Kettle a short distance  ���������below Westbridge has been condemn-  ���������ed and all tho teams are now using the  West Fork ford.  SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  A small cyclone, if anything a bit  bigger and moie vicious than the one  which .wrecked Fraser's hall in 11X15  when it was in process of erection,  swept over a portion of the town on  Monday afternoon, taking in the  Gazette: office in its itinerary where it  managed to blow in a door, filled the  air in the office with dust and loose  sheets of paper, blew the wash basin  half way across the room before spilling the water'out of it and tried the1  difficult feat of "painting the lily" by  depositing the office towel on the ink  fountain of the big piess. Next it  crosse>d the street Opposite the Bank,  lifting up the plank sidewalk and ripping oil' one of the: plunks on its way  to Boeing & Brass' carpenter, shop  which it struck at an angle but did  not effect an entrance' although the  eave-board was ripped off the rafters  iind a pile cif''hirii'ber in the rear became the next plaything and boards  aiul planks were mixed with the dust  and rubbish in going the witches'  round in the windy maelstrom.  R.  T.  Lowery,   the veteran   newspaperman  of the interior of British  Columbia   made Hedley a,   visit   last  week.    This  trip up the Similkameen  as far as Granite Creek which  would  have been extended through to Mer-  ritt if the   buzz wagon   had been   in a  sufficiently healthy condition, will enable Bro.   Lowery  to  round  out  his  geography of all the southern portion  of British Columbia!    Few newspapermen   with   the   single  exception   of  "Wings" Wilkinson has as intimate ii  knowledge of places and conditions in  this great province as  Bro.   Lowery  who has  only now  to'do  the north  country and the Esquimaux to be another Alexander with no  more journalistic worlds in B. 0. to conquer.   It  was a mighty hot day when he was in  Hedley and hence his disinclination to  move about any more  than was absolutely  necessary or we would have  had the pleasure of showing him about  and letting him see  the more interesting features of British 'Columbia's big  gold mine.

Bob Innis has' written' his people  here advising them of his marriage at  IS'A Mile House (Cariboo Road) on the  6th inst to a young lady-who bore the  historic name of Miss Florence Nightingale.    Bon voyage Bob.  We must congratulate Muster Carl  Keeler upon his success in passing the  recent entrance examination--held at  Hedley. Carl has the distinction of  being the first pupil passing from the  \    Keremeos school.  Andy Moves, of Summerland, has  ' been spending a few days with old  friends here during the week and at  the same time solicited a number of  orders for the Coldstream Nurseries  for which he is agent.  The weather man whose surly mood  had been the means of disappointing  the children of the Sunday School on  two preyious occasions this season,  was in a more amiable disposition on  Tuesday morning when.a third attempt was made to hold the annual  Sabbath-School picnic. At the time  of writing (Tuesday morning) pupils,  teachers and their friends are gather  ing, with baskets ' and boxes packed  ������������������''. full of all sorts of dainties, prepared  to spend a good day of it in the Fair-  v r-iA-jew canyon.  It is stated on good authority  that  the deal for the Lowe  ranch has pro-  ���������.',...   gressed sufficiently far to ensure it be-  **V'*        " *" l: i  ing carried through. The property  lies about three miles below Keremeos  and the deal is the biggest real estate  transaction which has ever taken  place in the valley.' Mr. Dick Cawston  is the .man who put it through and,  we understand, the buyers are prairie  capitalists who have the money and  the enterprise to develop the property.  Word has reached here that Tommy  Daly has been offered a. chance in the  Spokane professional baseball team.  Tommy has been playing ball this season with tlie Okanogan,. Wash., team  and annexing many scalps to his belt,  including that of the YVenatcheo team.  Tommy certainly can deliver elusive  slants and shoots, can field his position and slug the leather in a manner  not often found among pitchers. With  anything like luck he should make  good and his chance on the Spokane  team should only be a stepping-stone  to the bigger leagues.  The danger.of flirting with the swift-  current of the Ashnola was illustrated  on Sunday last when Joe Cooper and  a Keremeos bunch of followers of the*  celebrated Isaac; attempted to ford the*  stream on foot a short distance above  the old Webster camp ground. Joe  lost his footing in the swirling waters  and was carried down stream and  bumped against several rocks before  .making the opposite shore. Once he-  was partially stunned and shipped a  little water but recovered in time and  gallantly held on to his fishing rod and  big string of fish. After clambcring-;  out and shaking himself Joe  rescuer to the other members of the  party who had anchored themselves  to a big rock in inid-stream.  ��������� The leading excitement in Kcrcnii-os  during the week was the meeting of  the arbitrators at the Centre to determine what constituted a fair selling  price for the Frank Surprise ranch.  Public interest has be-eu considerably  a rod seil in this matter anil considerable bitterness engendered. between  the Opposite parties. Nearly two years  ago'.C. A. McDonald had purchased  the   property   from   Surprise   on   an  * ���������'*  ft  If  X  f  'I  I  I  f  X  X,  X  ������  x  K  i  x  i  I  SPECIAL QUOTATIONS  ��������� AT------  The Big Store  Men's Elastic Underwear regular ..$1.50  per suit, this ..week................. $1.15  Men's Imperial Balbriggan Uuderwear  regular $1.30 per suit, this week $1.00  20%  Discount on all Hats and  Tennis Shoes.

Later  Frank Surprise rued the deal and action was entered to .have"the agreement  annulled.   At the trial,   which  was  held at Greenwood   about   two  months  ago, the court asked that the  matter be settled out of court.  On the  suggestion    of the Surprise party  it  was decided  to leave it to arbitration,  McDonald  to have  the option of taking the land at the price   fixed by the  arbitrators" or to decline  it by paying  the costs of the arbitration,   Thearbi-  trators  selected were;  Hargraves,, of  Penticton,  for   Surprise:  Mprkill,   of  Vernon,  for McDonald; and Harvey,  of Kelowna, for the  third man.'   Mr.  Hallet, of Greenwood, acted as counsel  for Surprise and Mr. Billings,   of Vernon  fen- McDonald.    A large number  of witnesses were examined and sharply cross-examined and 0. ^-E.  Shaw,  C. E��������� P. L. S.,  was  engaged by Surprise  to run  levels and give evidence  as to the amount of land which could  be irrigated.   The final decision of the  arbitrators,  by a, vote of two to one,  was that  the price agreed upon was a  fair one anel the figure above mentioned with  interest at the rate of seven  percent from the elate of the agreement was the selling price fixed upon.  Though  the suggestion  of settlement  by arbitration emanated from the Surprise  party they are now asking for  an  appeal  and it remains  to be seen  whether  the  matter is finally settled  or if sufficiently good grounds can be  advanced for  upsetting the ruling of  arbitrators.
