The glorious, pious anil linuiortiil  memory of King Billy of Orange was  duly observed in the'vallcy hy a congregation of the-faithful of the order  and "also hy a number of others who  were drawn to Princeton by the match  rock-drilling contest hy teams from  Hedley and Copper Mountain.  The train from the south was lute,  that in,-ruing and betwee*n those who  got on at Keremeos and the larger  number from Hedley it was comfortably HUod. Held it been known that  the* train would not be held at Prince  ton until a later liom- in the evening  as many expected, there 'would not  likely have been as'great*.a turnout,  for .although no definite assurance  had heen given that the train would  bo held, most of those who went, up-  expected it. The Orangemen of  Princeton kept the wires hot for several days trying to get officials to  agree to it, but for some reason they  were unable to prevail upon them.  The* same concession had been obtained in previous years and there seemed  to be* no apparent re*ason for the restriction on this occasion, but nevertheless the* officials remained obdurate*,  and after the train reached Princeton  and the conductor had consulted with  the agent there, he began to tell all  who asked him that the train would  leave Princeton for the return liip on  time.  The. Princeton Orangemen had the  town band out and the members of  the lodge paraded to the station to  meet their bretht.*rn from the south.  Oil' the arrival of those from the  south, procession was again formed of  the three lodges, Princeton, 'Hedley  and Keremeos and they marched down  town. There was no speechifying in  a grove which' was formerly the piece  de resistance of all Orange celebrations. Nevertheless the Princeton  members had seen to it that in the absence of platform talent which would  either volunteer or could be prevailed  on to take the rostrum, <-i programme  of foot races, baseball' and the'drilling  match was provided to meike amends  forlt.  In the baseball, match the Princeton  Lodge played Hedley and Keremeos  Lodges and had a somewhat easy victory,'the score being 17 to 7.  NICKEL PLATE OUTPUT  IN 1913  Mr.  Jacobs Submits Some  Figures for  First Five Months  The visit of. Mr.'-fucobs to Hedley  Camp as announced in these columns  some time ago has made many look  for his write-up of the 'Cainp. The  contribution which, he kindly furnished the Gazette deals with Summit  Camp, Copper'1 Mt'umtain and other  mining interests up tho valley, .-ind it  has heen noted that' these have also  been dealt with in some detail in some  other papers in B. 0. As an earnest,  however, of valuable: attention which  he intends to give .to Camp Hedley  the following advance paragraph is  timely:  "Three  days were'spent at Hedley.  and on one of these 11 visit wees paid to  the Niekeel Plate mine.      Incidentally,  it may be   mentioned that the Hedley  Gold  Mining Co.'s  pi eduction figures  for  five   months to June 1st.   ultimo.  /-   -  arc: Ore crushed, _S.l.ISO tons; value of  gold recovered, $377, IS3. This works  out ;it approximately $12.9-1 a ton.  Last year-the company recovered $11.-  1!) a ton from 70,455:'tmis, so it would  appear as if this year's results, for the.  five expired mouths mentioned, have  given at the rate" of $1.75 a ton more  gold recovered."

THE  KOClv   DRILLING jrATCH  weis for $500 a sidewind was brought  about because-the'Copper Mountain  team which was made up of two  miners, Fraser and Larsen, were not  satisfied with the result of the.drilling  on Dominion Day in which they failed  to get a place, even for second money,  and they issued a challenge to the  winners of the first prize on tintt occasion, Fred Lyon and'S. IS. Hamilton  from Hedley, who thought for a while;  that the challenge was not meant  seriously but was merely a little bit of  bombast to save their faces, but when  they persisted in it the challenge was  taken up.  The drilling did not  take  place on  .Saturday   until   all   the   rest   of   the  sports were completed.    In the draw  for order of drilling the  fates decided  that the Copper Mountain team should  drill  first,    which   apparently   suited  them clown to the ground as  they had  already decided   that if  they had the  opportunity     to   do   sc>   they   would  choose  the  centre of  thu  quadrangle  made  by   the  four holes   which  had  been  drilled in   the same rock on Dominion Day.     By making this selection, if they had been  skillful enough  to put their  hole down straight,  they  would  have had a.  marked advantage  in getting softer  rock to  drill in,   for  the   concussion    resulting   from   the  drilling of the former holes was bound  to check  iind fracture  the ground to  some  extent,  and the disintegration,  however slight it might be, which was  thus begun,* was further  helped by 12  clays  water soaking and exposure to  the other  two great elements  of rock  disintegration,���������water and eiir.    But  they  weren't skilful  enough and got  their  hole crooked   wliich   resulted in  their  breaking  into one  of the   other  holes when only two-thirds of their 15  minutes time was up.     This put them  out of business, for the drill was stuck  Continued on Pago Three  Montreal, July 10th.���������The advance  guard of a great army of geological  experts from all over the world has  arrived in Montreal, and their number will grow day ,by day, each boat  and train bringing its quota* of members of the international geological  congress. They are"the delegates.who,  are to "attend the international geological "congress'"i'tf Te 'iron tofre-m August  7 to 14. This is the twelfth annual  congress of the society, and is the  first time Canada, has had the honor  of entertaining them. The invitation  to hold the meeting in this country  came from the Dominion government,  the Canadian Mining Institute, the  Provincial government of Ontario and  the Royal Society of "Canada. On  July 18th a .party"of from 75 to SO early  arrivals will st.-u-t oat 011 the first excursion in the province--east of Montreal, and there will be several before  the date when the total. membership  assembles in Montreal.  The southern part of Quebec.and  the maritime provinces will be visited,  and the excursion will end up at Ot-  t.-nva. On July 23rd a second party  will set out to inspect Sudbury, Cobalt and Porcupine and the mining  district of Ontario, ending up fit Ot-  tiiwei on July 31st. The same date will  see the arrival of a. third party at the  capital, which will leave Montreal on  July 24th iind visit the Haliburton-  Bancroft district. After the congress  prolonged tours will be made reaching  as far as the Pacific, coast, and one  party will go as far north as Dawson.  Forty different nationalities are to  be represented,'500 out of S00 members  are to be present at the sessions in  Toronto University.  A representative of the Gazette had  the pleasure of ,*i vh-it'last week to the  factory of the British Columbia Portland Cement Co.'at East Princeton  and saw .Portland cement in the process of miiiuifiu'ture. This process is  so interesting that we intend te> give  our readeis a detailed description  thereof, and not having the space at  our disposal this week, will give it a  little; later em.  Suffice it is to s.-ty at the pre-sent,  that the factory is running full blast  and turning out a very fine quality of  the manufactured article. So much  so that the heads of the company who  had always reason to believe'that the  quality of the raw material at hand  would enable them to turn out something extia, are moie than pleased  with the result, for . the laboratory  tests of the product which have already been made, have given them a  manufactured article that exceeds  their most sanguine hopes in that  direction.  Mr. Budd who was under contract  from the company to put up the "factory and hand it over to them in shape  to turn out a fine grade of cement,  has fulfilled his contract and the f;ic-  tory is taken off his hands eind turned  over to the operating department. The  new manager, Mr. A. A. Robertson,  is a man of long and successful experience, and has taken hold of his new  commission with the determination to  make the best grade of cement that  tan be found any where, in the country  and to make it as cheap or cheaper  than it can be done anywhere else on  the seime scale. When other units  are added to the present plant, which  is to be done very shortly, he is satisfied that the 'industry will more than  hold its own with other factories in  Canada both for quality and cheapness of production.  His stall' is small but capable.' Besides himself are D. C. Chads, chief  chemist, F. Budd, assistant ..chemist;  and the care of the plant is left to Mr.  Cox, chief engineer and master mechanic*, who was formerly with the  Hastings mills in 'Vancouver.  Cement makers as a rule like to keep  their stock on hand several-months to  season before marketing, but some  pressing orders must be filled at once,  and'- the laboratory tests which have  been made of the cement already turned out, are so conclusive that they  have no hesitation whatever in allowing it to go out.  .A more detailed description of this  interesting industry will be given in  these columus later.  Now that the completion of the  Great- Northern Railway's portion of  the remaining sections of road to give  connection with the coast is dwindled  down te;* a matter' of a few months,  public attention- in this valley that  was formerly focussed on V. V. & E.  operations, has begun to look beyond,  aiid like interest is manifested in the  operations of the Kettle Valley, especially as to the missing link down the  Ooeiuihallu. Rumors have been recurrent at legul.-ir intervals siiice; the beginning of the year as to when the  work for that portion of the route  would be under way, and at last news  comes to hand of something which  looks more like actual building than  anything that has yet been in evidence. Date after date was set as lo  when contracts for the building would  be let, and when that was, done there  was still the usual breathing spell before suh-t'.ontractiiis were allotted  their takes and had time, to assemble  their forces. The West Vale Review,  published at Hope, says:  "The construction equipment and  stores of George Chew have been packed at iSpuzzum for shipment to Hope  to be used on the construction of the  Kettle Vallev road.'"  CAN FIND NO FAULT  Prominent Liberal Paper Expresses Complete Satisfaction with Elevation  of Arthur Meighen  MINING   NOTES  OFFICIALLY EXPLODED  The  Myth of the Rain-Maker Goes the  Way of Other Exploded Theories  In these days when there are numerous claims of alleged 'rain-makers,'  who propose to bring down moisture*  from the clouds by explosions of dynamite, etc., it is rather interesting to  know that Dr. Fernow, Dean of the  Faculty of Forestry, Toronto University, wees the first official rain-maker  of the United States, that is to say,  Dr. Fernow was instructed to investigate the possibility of causing rain by  artificial methods, and he was particularly to investigate whether it was  true that great modern battles were  always fought in heavy, rain-storms  caused by the discharge of artillery.  Dr. Fernow's investigations led to a  report of an entirely negative character, that is to say, he found that there  was no truth in the report that great  battles were always fought in rain,  nor did he find that the discharge of  ordinance?' or bombs had any perceptible effect on the precipitation of moisture.  The Argb tunnel at Greenwood is  now in 900 feet and the giound is improving in an encouraging manner.  The point to which it is being pushed  will give a elepth from the surface of  2000 feet, The; portal of the tunnel is  only about 000 feet from the Greenwood smelter.  The Dickson incline from No. 4 tunnel in the Nickel Plate* Mine is three  compartment and is going down at  the* rate of over 100 fi'et a month in  very hard ground.  At the Nelson Fruit Fair a mineral  display of ores of the interior is to be  made a feature.  The ore values in the Nicke;l Plate  average for the first half year a little  over a dollar a ton moie than the  average of hist year.  On the Togo claim near Greenwood,  J.D. Graham has struck a small streak  of high grade ore that assays over  $400 to the ton in silver and gold. The  rich ore is 20 feet from the surface in a  shaft that is being sunk on the ledge.  The Togo lies about half a mile west  of the Providence,  The B. C. Copper Co. has decided to  put in at the old smeltery at Boundary  Falls some concentrating plant with  which to reduce the percentage of  silica in ore from its Lone Star and  Washington mine? and so make a product more suitable for smelting with  ores from its other mines in the district.���������The Ledge.  The Manitoba Free Press, published  in Winnipeg, which is the chief organ  of the Liberal party in the. west, and  which'should understand whereof it  speaks in this'.matter, lias the following to say as'to .the .choice of Mr.  Meighen for Canada's Solicitor-General."  The Free 'Press "says:","" "'"  "'Arthur MeighenV appointment as  Solicitor-General is well merited; and  will be: Well received by the public  generally.1 He has won the position  by his talents, despite the handicap  that- Manitoba is already over represented on the.treasury benches; and  in the face of very brisk competition*  for the" position .-from Eastern aspirants with miich longer parliamentary  experience." (   ��������� -  KAI-MD   RISE  "Mr. Meighen's rise to high parliamentary rank has been very rapid.  His success shows how desirable it is  that men with an aptitude for public  life should enter parliament young.  Becoming a member at the adaptable  age of 32, he picked up at once a parliamentary style which gave him the  ear of the House. A term in Opposition gave him ample opportunity to  develop. His second term, this time  on the ministerial benches, found him  one of the most accomplished parliamentarians of the House whose services were; indispensable to the ministry."  PRAIRIE CROP PROSPECTS  Outlook   for   Grain   Is   Now   Increased  Hundredfold.  Winnipeg. July 12th. ��������� Throughout  the Canadian prairies copious rains  fell yesterday, starting gcnerally  ubnut noon, and continuing well on  into the night. At some points it is  raining yet.  While the Western crops "are not,  ;es a rule, in urgent need of rain, a. few  places, like the Brandon district.  Southern Manitoba and parts of Saskatchewan and Alberta, have been  sulfeiing from lack of moisture.  According to the correspondents of  the Western Associated Press, however, yesterday's precipitation improved the crop situation in these districts a hundredfold.  The rain was not spasmodic, but  from the first fall has been a steady,  soaking downpour, with hardly a  moderation throughout the day. Of  all the principal Western cities, only  Edmonton, Calgary and Regina reported "no rain", and of these Edmonton iiad a heavy fall last liight.iwhilc  at Calgary and Regina the sky is overcast with heavy clouds and a.full imminent.  From as far west as Nelson the  "heavy rain bulleting has been received. At midnight a slight decrease in-  the fall at some, points is reported. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, JULY 17, 1913.

shipped to New York from Wennt-
cliee. Wash., were seized on Tuesday
by the e-tiiniuisi-ioner of weights and
measures, who ehargetl that they
were short of ;>.. quart by more than
nine cabin rentiineters each. The
discovery was made when one of the;
baskets was exposed for sale after a,
hole had been eaten into the false bottom by a mouse*.
Pour thousand additional btskcls
are expected here from Wenatchee tomorrow and these, toei, will be seized
if they are under size. This is the first

Frequent eiliusions have been .made
in . the. papers to Premier Asquith's
choice of a poet 'laureate' to succeed
Alfred Austen but it does not appear
to have been definitely settled that
his dark horse, Robert Bridges, has
yet been elevated to the post, or there
Avoukl have been a bigger row about
it. Robert may be a very excellent
man and -write passable poetry, but
who knows anything about him, or
could recite a line of his poetry if
requested off-hand to do so? Kipling,
on the other hand, is one -'whom not
to know argues yourself unknown."
He is the British poet of Empire and
is the diirling of the British people
everywhere;. To the Briton every-
Avhere in the empire, except to the;
���'little Englander" he Avould be acceptable, and to go past him Avould be
practically to administer a slap in the
face to 1'Jnglisliman, Scot, Paddy and
colonial alike, and there seems no
good en- sufficient reason why a British premier should want to do that.

Whoever  it was  avIio staged the  piece he  did his  Avork in a  most masterly manner and gave the patrons of  the  moving picture shows a veritable  treat.   The piece as given hy Lytton  to' the.   literary   Avorld   was a classic  and as such,   is familiar- only to lovers  of the  best in   literature.     The actors  who presented  it for protr.-tya.l  by the  cinematograph AA-ere ;i brilliant cast of  characters, and between them and the  literary    genius    Avho   arranged   the  scenes for them,a Avork of art* has been  given  to the public  Avhich  is  uniciue  both  as to   the  entertainment  it avi'11  afford and the good it Avill do in stimulating a love for this  literary   gem.

There Avas a good vigorous snowstorm in progress lip at the Nickel  Plate 'nearly all day Sunday and 'about  tAve) inches fell. -.A snowstorm eif  that, magnitude for the thirteenth of  July is ei bit unusual eA-en for the  Nickel Plate mine.

The Hedley Gold Alining Company  has instructed the General Manager-  he re to buy a new auto car- and Avhen  Air. G. P. Jones was out hist week he  purchased a new 10 horse power- seven  passenger' Cadillac ear Avhich Avill be  .-'almost the. same as Harry Twedclle's  Cadillac, with the exception that the  new company car will have a 37 5 tire  as against the 3(5-1 tire used on the  Tweddle auto. A ear of that poAver  and passenger carrying capacity avi'11  often,prove useful here.  It is under-stood that   the  Southern  Okanagan Land Co.  is  about  to  dispose of its   holdings at  Osoyoos  and  Fairvehv, in the  Southern  Okanagan  Valley, comprising  an area of 22,000  acres.    The deal involves the payment  by au  Englsli syndicate  of $500,000.  L.VV. Shatford, M.   L.   A., one of  the  joint managing directors of   the   land  company,   confirms   the report.    The  lands are said It) be the most fertile in  the Okanagan disti ict, being especially  well adapted for peaches, pears and apples and every variety of  small   fruit.  Those avIio   have   played   over   the  new golf links are delighted  with the.  course   and are. surprised to   find that  the majority of the holes are as sporty  as they are.     One or two  of the holes  might  be changed   to advantage,   but  tei  get a course  laid  out  by one   avIio  does not claim to be* a golfer where so  many of the* holes have  the essentials  to make and interesting game, is quite  an unexpected treat.     The sentiments  of   Hedley   golfers,   translated    into  orthodox  music Hall cockney,   would  be "Ave tikes orl' our 'ats"to Mr. 13eam.  Mrs. It. L. Cawston, of Keremeos,  was the guest of Mr. arid Nrs. Wirth  over the Aveek end.     She had  been  ail old'prize-winner'"in rock-drilling  and is supposed- to know the game  from A to Z. Neither was the nominal depth of! some 20 inches Avith  Avhich they Avere credited a.fair indication of the comparative speed of  drilling, for reasons wliich need not be  explained hut.which Ave re obvious to  those Avho saw the* 'distance Avhich the  hist drill Avbich broke into the other  hole, sank on the one bloAV.  Their opponents  to  Avin the match  had  only  to drill 21 or 22 inches and  had  no  need to  exert  themselves as  much as on au ordinary practice. They  chose a place, in an   apparently  solid  portion of  the rock far removed from  the other holes.     In a portion of their  ���������hole they  had a little  trouble passing  through a slip  which caused  two  or  three  drills to stick-and shoAved that  the  rock had  not that homogeneous  character which would make it a suitable or  fair rock for a contest of that  kind.    They nevertheless put in a hole  27;^ inches  which   was 3-10 more   than  they put doAvn to Avin first  money on  Dominion Day and no necessity existed   to do so.    Of course  they  would  have been better satisfied to have won  it  Avith a real contest  through to the  last second   of   each   team's   allotted  time; but when they knew that it was  to  gain  an   undue*   advantage  Avhich  made    their   opponents   choose    the  ground  Avhich   they did,   anel   that  a  hanging had resulted from a sufficient  allowance of  rope   foi-  that   purpose,  there is no occasion for them to waste  an inordinate: amount of sympathy.  The second challenge which av.-ik  tin own out after the match, shows  that the Copper Mountain team are  poor losers and not deserving of fin titer notice being taken of them, especially Avhen they will have their chance  again to come to Hedley on Labor  Day. Besides, the winners in this case  h.-ivt* plenty of precedent to reepiire  the. challengers to make good Avilh the  other Hedley team Avhich took the  second money away from them on  Dominion Day, before they ;ire entitled to another chance Avith the leaders.

Indeed  in the majority of instances one hour  and tAventy minutes will be found necessary.  To anyone Avho knows anything of  the psychology of the juvenile mind  such a paper Avill appeal .is demoralizing, when it is learned that only I.avo  hours Avere permitted the pupils to  read it, reason out and work the questions and then indite clean cut solutions.

On .Saturday Ave received a. night  letter from the regular Keremeos correspondent to the Hedley Gazette  st.-iting that he had just hit Nelson  and w.is still going strong and asking  us to contribute, some dope ,for the  Keremeos page of this Aveek's issue of  the Gazette. Not knowing Avhere a  reply of refusal Avould' reach him and  not wishing to leave the genial editor  with ei whole extra page to fill at the  last* moment, we consented. We. trust  that our gentle readers will keep-this  in mind, bear the infliction for one  week iind not A-isit upon the devoted  head of the regular'' representative the  result of any of our shortcomings.

It avhs  only when it came to filling the vacancy caused by the expiration of time  of one eif the trustees, that the fireworks started. Two nominations were  made, J. A, Brown as the choice of  the meeting and D. AL McCallum. a  recent settler as the choice of R. C.  Clarke, a. member of the hoard.  Though Air. Clarke .had to travel two  miles to get a seconder, he avjis game  and a.battle of ballots avjis opened  Avith the chairman of the meeting acting as returning officer, poll clerk and  scrutineer for both sides. The voting  proceeded rather listlessly until the  ladies started tei take a hand and the  event soon had a politicjil election  backed out of recollection so far as interest.

The result Avill be at  le;ist another year's delay in the completion of the link to Vancouver.  Veto's long-looked for motor handcar arrived last "week iind  is just the  thing for getting over the track.   On  Sunday he took a party of fishermen  up sis far as Bromley and if it hadn't  been  that the weather man was in  such   a surly mood and   the fish  anything but hungry, a ripping good time  would have  heen reported.     On  the  way home the party overtook two fine  buck, with  massive horns,  still in the  velvet, 011 the right-of-way just beloAV  BradshaAv.     They kept in front of the  csir a short distance for  over half a  mile and furnished a pretty sight. |  It avjis announced in last Aveek's  paper that Fruit Inspector Cunningham gave st flat denial to the charge  that there avjis fire blight in Keremeos  orchards. Here is a letter which he  sent to the Vernon NeAvs:  Editor Vernon N'cavs.  Dear Sir.���������I regret to see in your  issue of 3rd hist, that fire blight has  been reported from Keremeos, and Jim  tluinkfiil to report that after a most  searching inspection of Siniilkatneen  Valley Iain able to state positively  that there is no evidence* Avhatever of  the Blight in that fine settlement. On  the contrary, I have never seen cleaner  orchards in any country. The crops  are fair, though nol as heavy jis last  year, I believe the quality will be  good; alfalfa hay has suffered from the  unprecedented rains, Avhich luive been  so general in Oregon and Washington.  I have received information from Oregon in which it is stated that the hay  and cherry crops have been practically  ruined by excessive rains. I hope that  the damage has been less than reported, but it shows plainly that Ave are  not alone in our troubles.  Yours respectfully,  Thomas Cunningham.
