WINKLER,     Proprietor,  X  si  Charley Saunders left -Monday for  the Old Country, where after a visit  to his aged mother Avhorn he has not  seen for a number of years, he will enlist, he will try to get into a Canadian  uiachine gun section. For about seven  years he has been at the Nickel Plate  in the employ of the Hedley Gold Mining Co. and has made for himself a  large number of friends.  The scene at the station AA'as impressive, the number Avho had gathered  there vieing with each other for the  chance to.shoAV honor to the patriot  who was giving up good prospects and  going back home to fight,for his beloved empire.  There Avere several snapshots taken  of the gathering, prominent in each of  Avhich appeared the smiling face of  Charley Saunders.  Several of the Company's men Avere  there and sincere indeed were the  Avishes and firm the handshakes of  those Avho bid fareAvell to this, one  more Hedley boy, as they Avished him  God speed.  -Miss Johnson has been re-engaged to  teach the Nickel Plate school during  the coniing year. -    ,  Geo. Bowerman and Ross Allen set  out on a prospecting trip for Kruger  mountain and vicinityon Tuesday.- a  . Chief Engineer Kennedy of the V.  V. & E., has moved his family to Midway, which will be his headquarters  during a considerable portion of the  time required in pushing the road to  completion.  W. A. McLean completed repairs to  the dam at Nickel Plate lake last week.  A large volume of water is. stored  there which will assist materially in  helping out Twenty-mile during the  spell of low water.  Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Jones of the  Nickel Plate have the sympathy of  their friends because of the bereavement sustained in the death of their  little girl, Marjory Beryl, who died on  Monday after a brief illness. The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon.  Hedley is well in the lead now. We mean to stay there too.  The town of our size that overtakes us will be humping some.  When you take into consideration that tlie population of  Hedley, including mill and mine is only about 500, our present  objective of $5,000 will mean $10 for every man, woman and  child in the camp. Four-fifths of this has already been subscribed and the rest is assured.  '" ' There is no other town in the Northwest can present such a  record. But we are only starting. Just keep'your eye on  HEDLEY, .  Friday night the men at the Nickel Plate Mine raised over  $1200 in a very few minutes and Tuesday night the mill and the  town raised over $1100 for the gun and the Red Cross also in a  few minutes, not including tlie $500 given to the Red Cross fund  by the Directors of the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  At the meeting Tuesday evening a committee was appointed  composed of Messrs. G. P. Jones, W. A. McLean and' C. P. Dalton.  They will take charge of the fund and propose to make a thorough canvass of the district in the hope of raising the fund sufficiently to make it three guns from the district. The Red Cross  fund will also receive attention from them. A report of Friday's  meeting appears elsewhere in these columns.  HEDLEY GENERAL HOSPITAL  The people of Hedley may now Avell  be proud of the general hospital and  its equipment. The X-ray machine  which has been on the premises for  some time Avaiting for accessories is  now ready for immediate use.   .  At Monday night's meeting Dr. McEwen and Mr. G. McEachern, electrician at the Daly Reduction Company,  tried out the machine and great satisfaction Avas expressed by all present at  the result.  The Hospital Board Avishes to thank  Dr. McEwen for the splendid donation  of an invalid's chair which he presented to the hospital recently.  BIBLE CLASS TO BE FORMED  A union Bible class Avill be opened  on Sunday July 25th in the church at  2:30 p.m. Subject of the International  lesson: "Moses' Request Refused," Ex.  4:29 to 0:1.  A hearty invitation is extended to  all. Come and bring your Bibles.  Teacher, R. G. Stewart.  Work is to be resumed at once on  the Yankee Girl-and Yankee Boy,  situate on Hardy mountain, about a  mile from the Ayjestern city limits. W.  J. Campbell, the present owner of the  property, arrived in the city this Aveek  from Republic, accompanied by J. S.  Bedin, Avho will act as his manager.  Mr. Campbell has since purchased a  supply of lumber for buildings at the  property. A wagon road will also be  built from the mine to the government road.���������Grand Forks Sun.  There was a splendid attendance at  the meeting Tuesday evening. Everybody" who could'tut'ned'outV The band  Avas there with a selection of music it  Avould be'hard to beat.  C. P. Dalton was voted to the chair,  Avhich he filled in a most acceptable  manner.  The following program was then  proceeded Avith:  Piano Duet The Misses Smith  "The Maple Leaf Everybody  Solo Miss Daly  Selection By the Band  Short Address A. B. S. Stanley  Solo Mr. Jack  Piano Solo Miss M. Smith  Vocal Solo Miss Avonia Jones  Selection By the Band  Address W. A. McLean  Vocal Solo Mr. Howe  Selection By the Band  Address G. P. Jones  The music Avas exceptionally good,  each number being recived Avith intense interest and prolonged applause,  but the chair allowed no encores as  the object of the meeting was to raise  a fund for the machine gun.  W. A. McLean's address avjis a masterpiece, one of those spontaneous utterances that give expression to a  man's intense feelings, it AA-as concise,  clear, effective. No man could live under it without being impressed. That  it Avas the feeling of the majority of  those present Avas evidenced by the  enthusiastic applause Avhich greeted  various expressions and eagerly awaited the next.  We shall endeavor to give a brief  synopsis of his speech. He said, He  had viewed this question from every  standpoint, he had sought, to be fair,  to judge dispassionately, he Avas prepared even to give Germany the benefit of the doubt. But there av.-is no  doubt, there was no redeeming feature  in the whole affair. It was a clear  case of preconceived, fiendish, diabolical hate, hate which could only be  satiated in blood, it was being thus  satiated, in the blood of innocent Belgians and of the Allies.  "A year ago we in Hedley were liv  ing in peace, never dreaming of such a.  thing as the present upheaval. But  Avhat ii change.- Britain came into the  fight, not for gain, not for aggression,  but because she Avas compelled to do  so. compelled by the crie*. of Belgian  Avomen and children slain by the ruthless German. ' Britain had always  stood for the right, (Cheers). Britain  ahvays Avould stand for the right, (Applause).  Canada had responded nobly, he Avas  proud to live in Canada, (Much applause). He Avished he could afford it,  he would put up the money for a gun  himself. He wished he was younger,  he would go to the front and fight.  This last statement was greeted with  so much applause that the speaker had  to AA'ait till it subsided.  We regret Ave cannot here reproduce  the Avhole speech, but no pen could  describe the flashing eye, the emphasis  the expression, they will live in the  minds of the hearers for some time to  come.  Mr. G. P. Jones referred in his address, to the meeting held on Friday  evening at the mine at which time  farewell Avas said to Charles Saunders,  Avho since left for the Old Country to  enlist.  Referring to the meeting iioav being  held he said:  "Perhaps this is an opportune time  for me to make a feAV statements as to  why this Avar is being Avaged. So, if  you Avill bear Avith me a few moments  I shall endeavor to say a few Avords on  the subject.  "Unless some permanent good comes  out of this gigantic struggle, we shall  all have failed.  "England and her allies are not fighting for acquisition of territory or  Avorld supremacy; we are fighting for  a principle, which we believe is just.  Do yon. think there'is one mother in  the whole of the British Empire, that  would give her son's life, that Ave, or  our allies may gain more land or  riches? No! surely no! Then if we  are so much against war, the question  might be asked: "Why are Ave in it?"

J. Milne, of Vancouver-, has be  gun work at the Maggie mine on the  Bonaparte. This mine is tributary to  Ashcroft.���������Western Float.  Mike Merrick, Avho oaviis some e;ood  claims up the Coquahalla, is A-ery optimistic regarding the future of mining in that section, and Avill do considerable development work this season. ���������Vic tor ian.  KEREMEOS  We commend that speech of  Kaiser William's, quoted by Mr.  Jones Tuesday evening, part of  which appears in this edition,  as a cure for any pio-German  sentiment that may be floating  about the community.  Dan McBeth of Phoenix has been  appointed foreman -of the B. C.  Copper Go's Lone Star mine, Avhich  is iioav putting cjn men preparatory  to shipping ore. Shipments are made  over the 5J-mile aerial tram line to  Boundary Falls and from there to the  Greemvood Smelter by C.P.R.���������Grand  Feirks Gazette.  If you have a m.*"-1,"* of British1  Columbia that does not show  Hedley with a big circle and  capital letters throw that map  away. As a result of Tuesday  evening's meeting, hereafter  the Government of B. C. will  have to put capital letters in  the name Hedley wherever it  appears.  Items of interest reported by  the Minister of Lands, since last  week include the laying of steel  on the P. G. E. Railway to 11  miles beyond Lillooet, the starting of double shifts by the C. P.  R. tie-mill at Bull River an the  first of the month and the prospect of the early resumption of  operations by the Yahk Lumber  Company at Wasa. ��������� In the  Okanagan, four mills are operating on box contracts.  From information gathered from the  men just out of Herb lake, it is learned  that the Hedley prospectors are more  than pleased with the camp. They  have stated, it is said, that the gold  shoAvings more than realized their expectations. All of them are busy staking and prospecting the ground. There  are 11 Hedley men in'the ciump, and  they promise to advise back home  friends how good the place really is.���������  The Pas Herald.  What General Sherman said  about war, part of which is often emoted follows: "I confess  without shame that I am tired  and sick of war. Its glory is all  moonshine. Even success the  most brilliant is over dead and  mangled bodies, the anguish  and lamentations of distant  families appealing   to   me for  missing sons, husbands and fa-  thers. It is only those who have  not heard a shot nor heard the  shrieks and groans of the  wounded and lacerated, that cvy  aloud for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War  is hell."  Had General Sherman lived in  our time and passed through  some of the battles of the -present war he corld not better  have described dreaded war.  With this picture in view is it  not the duty of everyone ,to . do  what they can to reduce the  horrors of war to a minimum ?  One way, the way  that  at the  The Atlin district of British Columbia has the distinction now of fathering the largest pure gold nugget ever  found. The neAvs comes along the government telegraph line to Vancouver  ���������a prospector, notyet known byname  ���������found a forty-thousand-dollar lump  of gold. This is calculated from rough'  weight and represents more than tAvo  thousand ounces troy weight. This  find Avas lying loose on the hanging  Avail of a quartz vein. R. Campbell-  Johnston, mining engineer of this city,  reported the news to the Province.  To date Australia has held the banner with the "Welcome Stranger" jind  "Welcome'' nuggets, but must now  stand back for the "daddy" of them  all.  When this flush of news is authentically confirmed the effect of mining  to this province can not be calculated.  Such a new incentive Avill start British  Columbia off on a new sprint.���������Ross-  leind Miner.  In the Slocan country the mining  interests are evidently becoming more  active as witness the following notes  from the Slocan Record :,'���������.'  ��������� The Consolidated Mining and Smelting company has resumed Avork at the  OttaAva mine near Slocan City.  There is greater activity in mining  in the vicinity of Sandon than there  has been for tAvelve years. With a  dozen shipping mines and three concentrators Sandon should soon begin to hum.  This week the 'Standard mill started  running three shifts. Owing to the  C. P. R. as yet being unable to furnish  cars and barges promptly the shipments are' only tAveK'e cars weekly.  It takes tAvo days to load a barge of  six cars. If the cars Avere put in  promptly the shipments Avould average  from IS to 20 cars a Aveek. It is not  probable that the steamer Slocan Avill  be able to do this in addition to her  regular* service and also handle other  Four* mile shipments at the Silver-ton  slip and Avharf. With the large number of properties working in the vicinity of Silverton this season it is not  improbable that the shipments from  that point will reach forty and fifty  cars a  Aveek.  Several of our citizens went  down to Oroville to take in the  circus.  Mrs. Kerr, of Vancouver, is  visiting her sister, Mrs. Gibson  and family.  Miss Brown, of Ch'ewelah,  "Wash., is visiting with Mr. and  Mrs. O'Daniels.  Mr. and Mrs. P. F. Quant  spent several days on the homestead, on the Ashnola.  Mr. Petree, Mr. Smith and  Miss Vader were the guests of  Miss Winnie Manery, last Sun-,  day.'  The annual Sunday School  picnic was -held at Olalla on the  21st. Particulars in our next  issue.  Instead of the regular meeting of the Boy Scouts last .'Friday evening, they had a camp-  fire supper, and games after.  *. At the last meeting of the  Women's Institute there was a  button-hole contest, which was  won by Mrs. McCallum, Miss  Smith, second best.  Born, Sunday, July 18th, to  Mr. and Mrs. Milne, a daughter.  Mr. Milne is foreman of the' R.:  Ranch, and has only resided  in  the valley a short time.  -Last Saturday the Mattice,  Brothers, Carl Keeler and Lloyd  Armstrong Avent for a .'day's  outing, and brought back about  one hundred and twenty-five  beautiful speckled trout.  This is the glorious camping'  season, some are going, some  returning. Ashnola is the  favorite spot for campers as  both hunting and fishing are  good there at all seasons of* the  year.  On Monday, Mrs. Madore and  family, Mr. and Mrs. Campbell  and Mrs. Dundas and two  youngest children returned  from a pleasant trip at Ashnola.  Their only regret was that they  could not stay longer.  Mr. and Mrs. Hutch, of Spokane, passed through here last  Saturday, on their way by auto  to Vernon Avhere her brother  has enlisted in the army. Mrs.  Lindsay came with them this  far, where she will visit her  daughter Mrs. Tom Daly, until  their return.  Last Monday the Guthrie,  McDougall Co. came in with  five wagons and several good  work horses and mules, they  are headed for Oroville to work  on the new irrigation ditch project. They will be detained  here until Avord arrives from  Ottawa, giving them permission  to cross into Washington.

JULY' 22, 1915  V ���������*���������  Hedley   and   The   Nickel  Plate  Continued fioai l'ntfo One  The lenf-on is simply this. Ave ai-e forced into it; forced to uphold Hie* honor  of the nation; and avo shall abide hy our  treaty, already made, Avhich, among  other things guaranteed the neutrality  of Belgium. We t-igned llu* paper and  like Biitisheis all the world over, will  endeavor to sIioav the Avorld th.-it our  word is our bond.  Many good things are sure to come  out of this Avicked Avar: the best of all,  peace; but avc predict that from this  time for-Avard, peace is going to lie the  most militant thing on earth, enforcing law and order Avith the high, hand  of authority, and trampling underfoot  the petty majesties who Avould ever  again try to develop great empires  upon dead bodies of poor- working men  and simple peasants.  He then read a report of a speech  ��������� made by the German Emperor at Potsdam in 100S. We -hope to give this  complete to the people of Hedley in  the near future, but for the present  Avill confine ourselves to ei feAV quotations as folloAVb:  "Yes, gentlemen, Germany over  everything in the Avorld, the_ first  power on earth, both in peace and  Avar; that is the place which I have  been ordered by God to conquer for  her, I Avhich I will conquer for her by  the help of the Almighty.  "This is my irrevocable decision.  At present AA-e are, thanks to our airships, invincible, and can carry at Avill  Avar into the enemy's own country.  It goes Avithout saying that if we want  to maintain our superiority and to use  it to the best advantage, we cannot  postpone the necessary actions much  longer. In a few years our good friend,  the enemy, may have a fleet of airships  equal, if not superior, to our own, and  where should I be then? * * * Now is  our time. The attack heis ahvays been  the best defence, and he who strikes  the first blow generally conies triumphant out of the fray. To find an  outlet for the discontent of the nation;  to nip the growing republican sentiment in the bud; to fill our treasury;  to reduce the burden of taxation; to  gain new colonies and markets for our  industries across the seas; to accomplish all this and still more, we simply  have to invade England.  '���������You do not look at all surprised,  gentlemen, and I see from the joy on  your faces that my words have found  an echo in your hearts. * * * Our plans  have been most carefully laid and prepared by our General Staff.  "Another Von Moltke will, true* to  his great name, demonstrate to the  world at large that we haye not been  resting on our laurels since 1870.and  1871. and that, as the first condition of  peace Ave have been preparing all the  time for war. The glorious deeds of  our victorious armies will, I fear not,  be again repeated if not surpassed on  the battlefields of Great Britain and  France, assuring in their ultimate con]  sequences to Germany the place due  to her at the head of nations. * * *  "Of course it is too early yet to fix  the exact date when the blow shall be  struck. But I will say this that avc  shall strike as soon as I have a sufficiently large fleet of Zeppelins at my  disposal. * * *  "Ypu will desire to knoAv how the  outbreak of hostilities will be brought  about. I can assure you on this point.  Certainly Ave shall not have to go far  to find a just cause for Avar. My army  of spies scattered over Great Britain  and France as it is over North and  South America, as well as all the other-  parts of the world, Avhere German in ���������  terests may come to a clash with a  foreign power, Avill take good care of  that. I have issued rlready some time  since secret orders that will, at the  proper moment, accomplish what Ave  desire. * * *  "Even now I rule supreme in the  United States, where almost one half  of the population is either of German  birth, or of German descent, and where  three million German voteis do my  bidding at the Pre-idential elections.  No American administration could remain in power against the will of the  German vote-rs. Avho through that admirable organization, tlie German-  American National League of the United States of America, control the destinies of the vast Republic beyond the  sea.  * *���������In short, the overland route to  India���������will become our property, and  the German flag will Avave over the  holy shrines of Jerusalem.  "But to obtain this avc must first  crush England and France. The Avar  will be short, sharp and decisive. After the destruction of the English fleet  through our Zeppelins, Ave shall meet  with no serious resistance in the British Isles, and can, therefore, march  with nearly our whole strength into  France. Shall Ave respect the neutrality of Holland ? Under the glorious  Emperor, Charles V., both Holland  find Belgium formed part of the German Empire, and this they are this  time to become again.  J * With Great Britain and France  in the dust, with Russia and the United States at my mercy, I shall set a  neAV course to the destinies of the  world���������a course that will ensure to  Germany for all times to come the  leading part among' the nations of the  globe. That accomplished I shall  unite all the people of the white race  in a powerful alliance for the purpose  of coping, under German guidance,  ���������with the yellow peril, which is becoming more formidable with every year.  Then���������;is now���������it must be 'Germans  to the front!' "  Mr. Jones then read a quotation  from a pamphlet written by Prof.  Church, president of the Carnegie Institute, of New York, dealing with the  seizure by Austria, of the provinces of  Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1908, the  murder of the Crown Prince of Austria  in 1914, Austria's degrading ultimatum  and Servia's attitude. The quotation  concludes: "In this transaction Servia  showed a disposition towards preparation and towards peace, which the  civilized world" has been trying for  many years to inculcate into the foreign relations of all nations. Servia  had just passed through tAvo Avars and  her strength Avas exhausted. But  Austria, conscious all the time that  good faith would have enabled her to  reach an agreement in a conversation  of thirty minutes, was resolved to  make war, and in this resolve the German Emperor and the military party  in Germany upheld her, as candidly  achnowledged in their official declarations."  The speaker went on to say:  "Sir Edward Grey was fully aware  that this Avar like move on the part of  Austria-Hungary against Servia Avould  bring Russia into the question, and  might draAV Germany in as an ally.  So on the 24th of July he proposed a  conference betAveen Germany, Italy,  Prance and England, so that peaceable  arrangements could be made in the  event of the relations between Austria  and Russia becoming threatening.  "Summed up, the reply from Germany AA-as: "Your proposition is not  practicable."  "Was Germany anxious tp avoid  war? We shall ask you to weigh the  evidence and decide for yourselves.  "Ladies and Gentlemen, Comrades,  We are in this fight for right, unci if  it takes.every last man, we shall fight  to the last and Ave shall surely Avin,  but to do this each one must help."  Needless to say, this address brought  forth a tremendous burst of applause,  and it was with difficulty the chairman  could make himself heard.  The lists were then presented to the  meeting and in a very feAV minutes the  chairman annountcd that enough had  been subscribed to purchase another  machine gun.  "Those present arose and joined most  heartily in singing "God Save the  King."  Since  that meeting  the committee |  has succeeded in raising another $1000  so that Hedley Avill send tAvo* machine  ginih in addition to the one sent by the  miners up at the Nickel Plate.
