The Operations Now Under   Way  This Company on its Apex Group  By  At the present time two shifts of  miners under the superintendence of  H. R. Bobbins, M. E. are driving an  adit on the Acacia claim, which will  connect with tin existing drift running  from the 100 foot level of the shaft.  This adit will be over 100 feet long before it meets the face of the drift, and  will be in ore all the way from the  grass roots according to pronounced  surface indications. This adit in addition to furnishing a convenient  means of extracting the ore lying  above it, will develop a large body of  rich ore, on which the management  intends to sink later.,  The tunnel oh the Acadia Claim has  been mucked out and development  work will* begin here also on the 28  foot ore body exposed there. This  development, work may be either by  drifting or sinking, which the  manager will decide on as soon as he  has had an opportunity to sample jt  thoroughly.  In surface work "a start has already  been made clearing off the ground and  getting out logs for the additional  buildings which they intend to put up  for accommodation of the mine crew  before the Avinter sets in.  Those    who  have   been   over   the  ground since . the work has   started  have  formed   a favorable impression  of the manner in which development  is being undertaken.   It is always a  guarantee to stock-holders to have the  opening up of a mining property in  competent' hands   and" the Colonial  Gold Mining  Co. have acted wisely in  running no risks,  but have placed in  charge as managing engineer a man  who has already proven his capability  in other fields,    The development of a  mine is a task that is not accomplished in a day.    The best of them have  witnessed some discouraging periods.  Some that had little to start on have  under   capable   management  turned  out important producers,  in   reward  for the patience iind confidence which  carried them, through   the  shadows,  but it is easier, to  preserve faith and  confidence in a property like the Apex  group  that had   both  quantity   and  value to start with and has been given  capable, careful management.  HOPE TO COUTLEE  Shindy Pending in the Coquihalla. C. P. R.  Ready to Take Fall Out of Anything in Sight.  OVER THE SECOND CROSSING  A  Day  Ahead  of   Time���������Track-laying  Programme Kept Up.  For the past few days there have  been reports of a race between C.P.R.  and Canadian Northern surveyors for  a route down the Fraser, where it appears the C. P. R. wants the south  bank as well as the north.  Now comes an apparently well  authenticated report that engineer  Bassett, who it will be remembered  was in here in the spring and early  summer of 1905 locating the V.V. &E.  from Hedley both ways, is now in the  Coquihalla with a large party, and the  belief is that it is for the C. P. R. he is  .working.  Should this be so and the C. P. E.  mean business there will be high jinks  in the Coquihalla.for the G. N. R. will  have to throw on the high gear if they  expect to keep the C. P. R. from beating them hollow in the race. With  the link from Midway to Nicola connected up and a route down the Coquihalla to Hope the C. P. R. would have  a cinch on the Boundary-Coast passenger traffic.  'Thus it transpires bit by bit that the  snail pace maintained in-building the  V. V. & E. during the past four years  has been the means of hatching up  numerous difficulties that' would never  have been heard of if the work had  been pushed vigorously to completion.  With the cherished scheme of a  joint route down the Coquihalla for  the V. V. & E. and the C. N. R, that  valley was to be a veritable vale of  amity suggestive of the millennium  itself; but the V. V. & E. tarried too  long and Dan Mann's men went "nosing  down the Fraser and as a result of the  incursion we have Bassett's C. P. R.  braves in warpaint waiting only the  leadership of general Fred McLaine to  make the Coquihalla welkin ring with  bloody war-whoops.  As an evidence that contractor D.  Stewart is determined to keep abreast  of the work laid out, the steel gang  are getting over the second crossing of  the Similkameen one day ahead of  time.  On Saturday morning the horse pile-  driver at Hedley completed driving  the piles on the west end of the  Twenty-mile trestle and moved about  half a mile further up to the east end  of the third crossing where it is now  at work.  The steam pile-driver which was to  take its place in the Twenty-mile  bottom has not arrived yet, but is expected daily..  Piles are being delivered for the gap  in the Brushy Bottom fill and one of  the" steam-drivers will do that on its  way up the river.  The piling was all done on the second crossing last week and many of  the caps on.  ' With the progress being made it is  now an easy guess' that the rails will  reach Twenty-mile easily before the  loth of August.  The second engine to work the  ballast-train has not yet arrived, but  is expected this week.

The reason of this undoubtedly is that  the people of British Columbia do not  see eye to eye with Vancouver in her  employment of a band of mercenaries  hired from this that and the other lacrosse club of eastern Canada in order  to down a Westminster team made up  for the most part of sturdy youths  that have been born and brought, up  in the town for which they have fairly  and squarely won the honor of holding the Minto Cup.  Eastern lacrosse authorities have  at times taken a gloomy view of the  chances of winning back the Minto  Cup which the Westminsters have  given British Columbia the credit of  holding, and some of these easterners  have even admitted plainly that their  main hope of getting it back is as they  have expressed it "by the Vancouver  route". By this they mean that if they  can strengthen Vancouver to such ex  tent by loaning them a band of mercenaries and have Vancouver beat  Westminster in a series of games for  championship in the Coast league, then  by the terms attached to the holding  of the Minto Cup it would pass to  Vancouver without them having to  go to Westminster to play for it in  the same manner that eastern teams  are required to come out here to contest- it.  Then when this has been accomplished, the remaining part of the  trick would be to have the mercenaries  or hired help pick up stakes and go  back east leaving Vancouver unable  to defend it. That is what the easterners mean by getting it back "by the  Vancouver route."  The rest of the province can see  through the game and it does not tend  to inspire much respect for either the  patriotism or tlie honor of the Vancouver lacrosse crowd.  Attendance Increases as A. Y. P.   Fair  Proceeds���������Satisfied Visitors Help  to Bring More.  Seattle, July 26.���������For the first time  at any World's Fail*, a separate building has been devoted to the Good  Roads exhibit at the Alaska-Yukon-  Pacific Exposition.  This building is permanent and was  erected at a cost of $10,000. It will be  used by the University of Washington  as a school of Good Roads after the  Exposition.  The exhibits are arranged to work  out for the benefit of the people of the  Northwest, the economy of all of the  important pavements and roads.  In the large room to the left of the  main entrance has been placed a  model of the Deception Pass quarry  which will soon be put in operation by  the State of Washington. All of the  equipment of this quarry is reproduced  in miniature to represent the state  plant, which is probably the best  quarry in the United States for producing road building material.  Models of different sections of road,  together with miniature road building  machinery, are placed in the exhibit  room. In the south front room is the  laboratory testing equipment which  will be used to carry out a series of  practical tests during the summer.  Near the Good Roads building have;  been laid three short sections of pavement, one ashpalt, the other brick,  and the other wood block. The relative  force required to draw a given load  overall three of these roads will be  determined by a series of experiments.  The Live Stock Show and Poultry  Exhibit of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific  Exposition which is scheduled for  September 27th to October 9th, promises to be one of the most attractive  features of the entire Fair. Enquiries  concerning dates, reservations and  privileges have been received in large  numbers from breeders in different  sections of the United States and Canada and in addition to the show, many  sales will be held so that many of the  best specimens will.find new homes in  the Pacific Northwest.  More than $03,000 in cash prizes is  offered, A large number of handsome  and valuable cups, medals, .souvenirs  and ribbons   have   been  put   up   by  Associations and individuals.  Concluded on I'ago four.  The condition of M.Sedich the miner  who was shot at the Golden Zone  mine has turned out to-be much more,  serious than it first appeared.  Dr. McEwen, of Keremeos, has had  several consultations with Dr.  Whillans who has been in charge of  the case, and they decided at the end  of the week that less chance would be  token by amputation of the leg above  the knee than in trusting to the possibility of healing..-In view of the fact  that the bullet when it came in contact with the bone, seems to have been  shattered into hundreds of small  particles which penetrated almost the  entire, fleshy part of the leg,  circulation has been so seriously  interrupted that it is very doubtful  whether decay of the limb can be prevented.  However, there seemed to be no alternative for the doctors when the  patient would not consent to amputation ; and another feature of the case  which possibly reconciled them to the  alternative of allowing things to take  their course was the exceedingly uncertain heart action. When he was  put under chloroform to have the  bullet probed for and the full extent  of the injury ascertained, he almost  succumbed to the effects of the  anesthetic.  The published statement that negotiations are in progress between the  Dominion Government and the United  Wireless company looking to the acquisition by. the latter of the stations  owned and controlled by the former  has aroused considerable interest in  local shipping circles. -  The cost   of the   five  government  stations now being operated on  the  British Columbia, coast was   $60,000,  the   yearly   expenses    in   connection  with   their    operation    being    some  $8000.   Since their, institution :���������, large  amount of commercial work  has  offered, but owing to the fact that they  were erected for < life-saying  purposes  and with  the object lot* reporting vessels equipped with the apparatus when  off  the coast,   and   thus   facilitating  shipping interests, this work has been  refused.    Up to the present  the government have been chary about granting licenses for the erection  of stations in  British  Columbia,   and  the  United Wireless company has realized  that its only chance of expanding its  business in  this province is through  the acquisition of the government stations and their conversion to commercial ends.  The stage at which the negotiations  have arrived at present is understood  to be that the commercial company  has made an offer to the. government.  This offer is now under consideration.  Should it be accepted the UnitedWireless Co. will take over the stations and  operate them free of charge to the  government. it is understood that  Hon. William Templeman is satisfied  that the agreement would be a good  one.  "The object of the Dominion government in installing the Shumaker system of wireless on this coast was an  effort to break away from the Marconi'monopoly. At the time of their  erection the government was highly  praised for its high spirited action in  antagonizing a company as powerful  as the pioneers of wireless telegraphy.  If the present negotiations prove sue*,  cessful, the United Wireless Company  will have a monopoly on the Canadian Pacific coast, just as they have  on the Pacific seaboard of the United  iStatesrbut they have never yet shown  a disposition to abuse it.  The present negotiations cannot be  concluded until the return of Hon. L.  Brodeur, minister of marine and fisheries, from England.  KETTLE VALLEY TAKES IT  M.  & V. Passes to Hot Air And Building-  Commences At Rock Creek  LABOR DAY SPORTS  Some of the Features That Will  the Event.���������Others to  be  Decided on.  Mark  There is considerable enthusiasm  over the sports to be held on Labor  Day this year and the committees are  busy arranging a program that is  aimed to interestand amuse all classes.  They hope in about a week to b<?  able to get out the detailed program  with full prize list. In the meantime  they announce that the following  events have been decided on:���������Rock  Drilling Contest, Base Ball Tournament, Horse Races, Trap Shooting,  and Athletic Sports. A great deal of  interest is being taken in the Marathon Race and the committee has decided on the distance as five miles  and the course will be on Pinto's Flat  so that the runners will be in full view  of the spectators during the race.  There will also be a 100 yards dash,  quarter mile, 220 yards prospectors'  race with 50 lb. pack, running high  jump, and pole vaulting. All the  horse races and athletic sports will be  held on Pinto's Flat and the latter  will be held on the afternoon of the  first day when the most- men will be  free to take part.  Among the horse races there will be  a 600 yards opcu; saddle horse race 600  yards, owners up; ladies race ; cow-boy  race; COO  yards   pony  race and  cow  girl race.  I. L. Deardorff,  road supervisor, returned at the end of last week  from  the eastern portion   of the riding and  brought good news as to the railway  outlook over there.   During the whole  period which has  elapsed since the inglorious shut down of M.& V. building  operations by the   straw  men    who  were running it,    very few  months  have   passed   without   some    rumor  looking to the renewal  of   building,  but this time the rumor is to the effect  Chatmen and teams are being engaged  for a certain date to begin work.  Nothing appears to be known as to  who is financing it, but the general  belief is that it is the C. P. It., and if  this be true, it lends color to the  rumors extant regarding early commencement of operations at the Nicola  end. The Kettle Valley By. is the  nominal push.  At Rock Creek they were quite confident that the work would be in pro-  cress in about a fortnight.  The Greenwood Ledge in referring  to the matter says :  '���������The Kettle Valley Railway company is, it is said, making arrangements to resume construction work on  the Midway and Vernon railway, a  party having arrived at Rock Creek  last week for that purpose. It is to be  hoped that actual construction work  is intended, and not a few shovels of  earth turned for the purpose of  holding the charter. If permanent  work is intended it is probable the  0. P. R. is behind the hot air line. THE   HEDLEY GAZETTE, JULY 29, 1900.

As Ayise a man as Matthew
Arnold lias dared to oppose
public opinion by declaring that
"majorities are always wrong."
When we come to consider that
all constitutional government is
based on the assumption that
majorities are always light,
the statement made by Arnold
seems a bold one, and yet Avhb
can honestly review constitutional history without recognizing the fact that majorities
had in almost every instance to
be 'wrong for a considerable
. spell before they got right and
in too many instances they
have failed to ever get right.
It seems only a short time
ago that W. J. Bryan was leading his crusade  on the silver
question and trying to show his
countrymen    that    in   pinning
their faith to  a-gold standard
alone  they would  in   a   short
time injure their trade.   Nowadays   neither    Bryan   nor   his
followers     dare     open     their
mouths before the electorate of
the  United  States  at   election
times   in   condemnation   of   a
gold standard, and yet it begins
to look as if the cause hefougth
for  and lost  was nearer  right
than that which   triumphed in
that financial struggle.
During that campaign biniet-
alism and  mononietalisin were
terms  bandied   about without
any   real   knowledge  of  what
they  implied,  and  in  most  of
cases  those  who   had most to
say   about    them     understood
them  least.    After a   while the
right prophet of finance will be
able to strike   the right note at
the  most  opportune  time and
people  will wonder  why they
ever  opposed the general principle  underlying tlie propaganda that  Bryan sought to establish,  but went the wrong way
about it to do so.
People will be more incredulous than ever if told to-day
that the silver question like the
ghost of Banquo will not down,
but will yet become a live issue
tliat the people will have to
accept, and accept perhaps when''
sen ted    some   startling   facts,
which    although     they    were
printed in Vancouver dailies.at
the time'did not seem to attract
the  slightest attention  on the
part of the general public.     He
showed that instead of Asia becoming    a     market    for    the
products  of the  west, the gold
standard   countries   'were, fast
j losing  the trade of the   Orient
arid compelling  the  people'.of.
Asia to manufacture for  themselves.       -     ....-'"'      -"
This summer, rolling mills
have been erected in Hankow,
China, which started to roll
steel rails that they can lay
down in Vancouver at $20. per
ton, and with their cheap labor
they, can defy competition on
the'part of those who have to
manufacture goods under the
present wage scale in vogue
here ; and it has all come about
because the rate of exchange
for China's silver currency has
borne unjustly against China
and other Asiatic countries that
had the silver standard, compelling themto pay 40 per cent,
more to buy a Canadian or
United States dollar or an Eng-
io take over the stations and
oj)e'rate them commercially
they would be relieved of that
outlay and get their own work
donefor them free of charge'
and done more efficiently than
when operated by themselves.
lish sovereign with which to
pay for tlie goods they wanted
to buy from us than they had
to do before the debasemerit of
their silver coinage. In this
way they are being compelled
to manufacture for themselves,
and not only will we lose their
trade because of that, but later
we will have to compete with
their manufactured goods in
our own markets.
The Fair Exchange Society
have an interesting if not alarming story to tell, and gold standard countries like our ownwill do
well to pay more heed to what
they have to present.
It is very encouraging to see
a big corporation like the C.P.li.
taking the active  interest they,
are  doing in  such  schemes for
tlie   material  advancement   of
the  country  as  irrigation and
forest preservation.   One of the'
most enthusiastic  and best informed  advocates of irrigation
is J, S.  Dennis  of the  C; P. B.
land     department,     and     Mr.
William White has contributed
an    important   article   to   the
Canada-West   Monthly   which
points  out that fifty years ago
the -timbered area of the United
States  and' Canada was about
1,250.000,000   acres ;  now ' it   is
about 800,000,000,  and  most of
this  cutting   away   has   taken
place    in    the    last  thirty-five
years.    He says that it has been
proved  that  the whole prairie
region  of Canada is forestable.
We     quote:     "Broadway     in
Winnipeg is  one  of the most
beautiful streets  in  the world
and the  elms  have made it so.
The foliage has become so thick
that the  trees  themselves  will
have to be thinned out.     Of all
the 'elms planted  in Winnipeg,
the records  do  not show that
one per cent, have died."

The  Dominion
cannot do  better
than accept
the offer of the United  Wireless Telegraph,Co.   to take over
the operation   of the government   stations    up   the   coast.
The government  operators  do
not understand it well enough
to make the system as successful as it should be, besides they
have   the    'Shu maker    instruments instead of the more  efficient equipment which  United
Wireless uses in its commercial
work and would  instal  in  the
government    stations    if   they
took them over.     Mr.  Temple-
man   claimed   credit    and   deserved it  too,   when   he  broke
away from the Marconi people
who fell down on their contract
and could not deliver tho service which the government required  for life-saving purposes,
and that was the original purpose   for   which   the    stations
were put   in.    A   system   that
could not be. depended  on   in

Templeman  bought the equipment   from     United   Wireless,
but lie should not have  chosen
the less efficient Shumaker sets
from  them   when   they   could
have supplied  better.     It now

C. A. Crawford, auditor for the  Daly Estate, arrived in Hedley on  Thursday last, going out again on  Monday morning. As the length of  his stay has been much shorter than  usual at this time of the year, a certain  significance - is being ��������� attached to the  circumstance locally.  It is reported that some of the  1 graders between here and Princeton  ! are getting a trifle uneasy when they  recognize a possibility of the tracklayers catching them before they get  through. To avoid that disagreeable  contingency they are working night  gangs in camp 5 and 6.  This summer thus far is i*eseinbling  that of ten years ago very closely.  Should the resemblenco continue we  may look' for three more particularly  wet months, for in 1S09 the months of  August, September and October were  very wet and farmers had great difficulty in saving their crops.  A noticeable feature during the past  few weeks is the number of new families that have   been   taking   up  their  abode here.   More of the employees of  the mill and mine whose families have  been  living   elsewhere   are  bringing  them in, and this is true also of men  at other occupations outside the em-1  ploy of the D.   11.

Another piece  of information  which Miv Marks had  to communicate was to the effect that  the deal for the Nickel Plate had been  consummated.    This, he claimed, was  no mistake as he had it from  each of  two parties whom he named and both  of these should be in a position   to  know.

Getter Better Day by Day. *  Con tinned fron Page One. .,'.. 7,  Visitors to the Exposition grounds  duriug the first five weeks and officials  of the big show have only words of  praise for the manner in Avhich the  street -railway company is handling  the crowds. The only sign of congestion came on the opening night, when  a sudden downpour of, rain drove the  people from the grounds with the demand for immediate passage to tlie  city. But even this mass of humanity  was disposed of within aii hour.  From  day  to day and night after  night tlie fair visitors have been comfortably cared for by the Seattle .Electric Company.    Women have no difficulty  in  securing a seat and except  during  the  ordinary   rush hours of a  big city, the men are also seated.   The  cars are all on fast schedules and run  at short intervals.    Four lines lead directly to  the grounds, two traversing  the business  sections and two leading  over the hills among the fine residences  In addition  are three cross-town lines  which  connect at Lake Washington  with steamers which land at the Exposition dock.    Speaking of the service given  by the street car campany,  James A. Wood,  director of exploitation, said :."'  "I have talked with many old exposition followers and their unanimous  declaration is that tlie crowds are  ���������better handled by the Seattle street  railway company than they have been  in any other exposition city.. There  are seven ways of getting',, to tlie  grounds. Of course the two shorter  routes from the business centre are  the most patronized; but visitors from  outside, who want-to see something of  the city; will be inclined to -travel  over the hills and by the Lake Washington routes. So far as the exposition authorities are concerned the service has been highly satisfactory."  BUY HEDLEY PROPERTY NOW  We still hold a few lots on the Business Streets which we are  offering at the old prices $300 to $450 per lot, and we  have good Residential lots in nearly every part of the  town at prices ranging from $50 up to $250 per lot.  With the railroad rapidly approaching and new mines being  opened all around us you cannot expect to buy lots at  these prices much longer. '    ������  Better Secure Some Right Now, Before the Price Goes Up.  MRS.  G. C.  TUNSTALL DEAD  Mother of Dr. Tunstall Passes Away in  ��������� '*���������'' Montreal at Ripe Age.  Vancouver Province)  Mrs. G. C. Tunstall of Ste. Anne de  Bellevue, mother of Dr. S. J. Tunstall of Vancouver, died in Montreal  on July li at the residence of her  daughter, Mrs. M. S. Blaiklock. Dr.  Tunstall is in Montreal at the present  time. Mr. James C. Tunstall of Kamloops is also a son of the deceased lady.  The late Mis. Tunstall was 86 years  of age. She was born in Montreal  in the historic days of the great fur-  trading companies, being the youngest daughter of the late Simon Fraser,  who was one of the first Highlanders  to enter the service of Jacob Astor's  Northwest fur-trading company. He  had charge of the company's post at  Ste. Anne de Bellevue.  One of the most interesting reminiscences of Mrs. Tunstall cencerned  the visit of Tom Moore, the poet, who  was tlie guest of her father, and it Wcis  the flowing of the rapids past the  Fraser residence that inspired the  Canadian Boat Song.  Mrs. Tunstall's mother was a sister  of the celebrated Alexander Mackay  of British Columbia, her maiden name  having been Catherine MacKay.  The old , homestead which Mooie  visited is still the property of the  Fraser family, -and has lately been  remodelled to its original design, being occupied by a branch office of the  Bank of Montreal. The remodelling  was done under the personal care of  the president of the bank, Sir Edward  Clouston, who is a descendant of the  Hardistys, and whose famous country  home adjoins the Fraser property at  Senneville.
