C.  Vernon, B. C.  LABOR  DAY SPORTS.  The public meeting on Thursday  evening last for Labor'Day celebration  ������������������resulted in the oppoinfcment of a committee to arrange for sports. Already  a canvass of the town has been made,  and from the funds forthcoming a good  programme of.sports will be arranged.  Last week the tercentary stamps began to move through tho mails. The  first' to be received at this offiice was  the green colored stamp bearing portraits of ChamplainandOartier, which  decked a. private post-card sent out by  J. N. Tallman <fc Sons, Hamilton, Ont.\  Hedley is the-most important mining  camp in the Osoyoos Mining Division  of Southern British Columbia,  and is  situated on the Similkameen River at  the'mouth of Twenty-mile Creek.  The  history of mining operations at this  place dates from" the year 1896, so .that  the camp is little more than ten years  old.   At the present time  there, are  about 110 surveyed and crown granted  mineral claims and many others on  which  the annual assessment work is  still behig done.    Prospecting and development work on these claims were  carried ou for some years, but it was  not until early in 1001 that actual extraction  of gold began.    The Nickel  Plate and the Sunnyside, both owned  by the Yale Mining Company, are the  two  most important claims and the  only two on  which actual mining'-is  being prosecuted, so that the total production of the camp is to be attributed  to these two claims.   The ores from  these two claims are treated by the  Daly Reduction Company in   10-stamp  mill and a cyanide plant in the valley  3,500 feet below the mine.    Gold is the  only metal at present being extracted  frout the ores of this camp,  but there  are some indications promising a small  copper production from other parts of  the camp when  transportation facilities shall be improved and other conditions are more favorable.   The gold  ore is auriferous arsenopyrite, and of  such a grade ac present that it is not  considered worth  while to extract the.  arsenic at the same time; but with  a  gradually decreasing gold content and  the exhaustion  of the high grade surface ores such  a contingency might  eventually have  to be considered by  the mine operators of the district.  During the summer of 1907 the writer was engaged in a survey of the rocks  of Camp Hedley for the Geological  Survey Department and considerable  study was given to the occurrence of  ,the ore bodies. The work was not  completed, but sufficient information  was obtained to outline the geological  history of the rocks and in some degree, to work out the relations of these  rocks to the ores.  There is only one series of sedimentary 'rocks, and these are the oldest  rocks in the camp. No determinable  fossils have yet been found in them,  but from their lithological characters  they have been referred to the Cache  Creek group of Dawson's classification,  and are therefore presumably Carbon;,  iferons. The series in ascending order, as exposed within the limits of the  camp, gives the following succession :  (1) red, grey and black silicious and argillaceous beds interstratified in thin  bands; (2) blue and white, limestone,  becoming impure at the top, and  breccia; (3) silicious and argillaceous  beds like the lower ones with probably  some tuffs.  The limestones of the middle division  hold the ore bodies that have so far  proved to be of economic importance.  These sediments clip to the westward  at an angle wliich increases in that  direction from 12 to 90 degrees. They  are cut by a mass of monzonite lying  in the central part of the camp, and  also by a granite which is later than  the monzonite. Dikes and sheets emanating from these two igneous masses,  and particularly from the monzonite,  penetrate the sediments in every part  of tho camp and alter them to such a  degree as to make them difficult to recognize in the; field. Some of these  sheets may perhaps have been injected  before the uplift and folding of the  sediments took place, but it is likely  that tho majority of the igneous intru  sions were later than these events.  Monzonite is thy.next rock in age to  the sediments. This occurs in two  distinct varieties in different parts of  the same mass with all stages of transition between them. The more basic,  variety covers the w.idest area and occupies the central and western portions  of the mass, while the acid variety lies  along the eastern side and sometimes  also occurs intrusive in the basic variety. The constituent minerals of the  normal phase are orthoclase and plagi-  oclase in about equal quantities, with  hornblende, augite, quartz and biotite  in varying proportions. All stages of  transition from the. basic to the acid  variety can be found. Well marked  contacts too are common, and these  always show the acid variety as cutting the basic. From this core a great  number of sheets and dikes of what is  called andesite have been given off,  and the same gradual transition in  composition is-noted in them as in the  mass from which they emanated.  In a diagrammatic west to east section across the camp there is shown  the relation of the monzonite and the  dikes and sheets which it gives off to  the overlying sediments. The monzonite is shown as making a plunging  contact with the sediments and the  dip of the sediments on the east side is  such.that off-shoots from the monzonite could readily penetrate the sediments following along the bedding  planes of the latter as being the lines  of least resistance. The section also  shows a small area of the sediments  lying as a roof pendant in the monzonite and which was not entirely absorbed by the monzonite before it solidified.  The monzonite, as well as the sheets  and dikes, have exerted great influence  in altering the, sediments that they  cut, hut the metamorphic action is  stronger in the acid variety than in  the -basic, and all the ore bodies now  being worked are situated at the contact of this acid variety with the sediments. The monzonite is the most  important rock in the camp in relation  to ore bodies and appears to be genetically connected with their occurrence.  The next rock in age is. a body of  granite lying at the foot of the hill  overlooking the Similkameen River.  This granite covers a very extensive  area of country outside the limits of  the camp, both to the north and south,  as well as for about fifteen miles along  the river to the west.

This granite resembles the  Nelson granite in composition, and its  constituent minerals are orthoclase,  some plagioclase and quartz, with biotite and hornblende. The section exposed overlooking the river shows the  granite at the base and for about 400  feet up. .Above it are the tilted beds  of the older sedimentary rocks with  interbedded andesite sheets dipping into the granite and truncated by it,  (Continued Noxfc Week.)  Oi   A RARE   MINERAL.  The Gazette is indebted to Mr. Chas.  Carnsell,  head'of the  Geological  .Survey party in  this camp,  for a  specimen of a rare mineral which he found  last week in the course of his geological work on  the Copper Cliff  mineral  claim.    The mineral is axinite,   which  is a boro-silicate   of   aluminium   and  calcium.   The   specimen   with  which  Mr. Carnsell has kindly  furnished us  is an excellent one, showing the characteristic clove brown color, with some  suggestions in spots of the. violet vari  ation.and the fracture was particularly characteristic taking   the  shape  of  th'e implement from which the mineral took its name.   While  we  are  not  aware of any economic value which  it  possesses, its great rarity makes it of  special interest.    In fact its  occurrences are so rare   that   the   elder Dana  mentions only one place on the North  American   continent,  although  E. S.  Dana in   his larger  and more  recent  volume gives a few places  in   the United States, and two iii ess tern Canada,  viz.   Northumberland   Co.   N. S.  and  McKay's brook a branch of N. E. Miri-  michi river. This find of Mr. Camsell's  in Camp Hedley is, however, the first  known in  Canada anywhere  west of  the great lakes.    The'Gazette   appreciates highly the privilege of being the  first paper to chronicle the find.  Speaking of 'railway competition at  Midway, the one industry that is seen  to benefit thereby is the. stage line between Midway and Greenwood. This  business has grown to such extent that  two lines are now running direct in  addition to the West fork stage which  continues fo run through to Greenwood. The route between Phoenix  and Greenwood has also benefitted  somewhat, for travellers westward  from Grand Forks on the Great Northern, especially commercial men, find  it profitable and convenient to take  the branch up Fourth of July creek  to Phoenix and Greenwoood on the  trip , both of which towns they would  miss by keeping the main line of "the  V. Y������ & '5. westward from ��������� Giand  Forks via. Curlew.  At Midway the bullet car is taken  on, and the train is only in motion  about 100 yards or so until it slows up  again for Ferrie on the boundary line  where acquaintance is again made  with Uncle Sam's customs officials and  an opportunity is given of witnessing  the departed glory of Ferrie, the mushroom metropolis of malodorous memory which flourished for a few brief  months of infamy during railway construction and, ���������then, flickered out. An  occasional fire has visited the ruins  and kindly wiped out some of the more  notorious dens of that time but a few  still stand���������untenanted. .  Along the Kettle River in Washington is seen some good looking land and  a little attempt at tillage. Up Toroda  creek are some mining properties that  a few years ago shipped some ore  when it had to be teamed to Midway,  but at present Toroda station does not  offer evidence of contributing much  tonnage in ore to the railway now in  operation. At Curlew is the junction  to Republic.  Mention was made of the buffet car-  taken on at Midway. This car was  formerly hauled up the hill to Molson,  but this has been discontinued and it  now lies on the "wye" at Midway  while the train makes the run to Oroville and return. What [the original  intention was when the car was built,  does not appear. To question its utility in the present use to which it is  put, is to lie very exacting for it is all  utility���������a case of utilitarianism run  riot.    Goldsmith's  piece   of furniture  which  "contrived a double debt to'pay,  "A bed by night, a chest of drawers by day"  wasn't in it with this, for it is all at  once an observation ear, a dining  room, a reading room, a ladies'waiting  room and a gentlemen's smoking room,  and all in the one compartment. It is  run by a colored gentleman, but from  thi5 it is not so be inferred that it belongs to the same class with  the  one  The executive of the Hedley Liberal  Conservative Association got together  on Friday evening last and decided to  memorialize the Lands and Works  Department through the representative for a bridge across the river" in  the vicinity of Sterling Creek, for the  benefit of ranchers and claim owners  across the river, as well as for the convenience of the general public. Various lines of procedure were discussed,  and if there be any chance of taking  advantage of local circumstances to  get speedier action than the usual procedure of waiting till the next session  for an appropriation, this will likely,  be done. The railway contractors  will need one or more tote, bridges for  prosecution of grading operations, and  the railway company as well would be  benefitted by a bridge. Some arrangement by_whieh something more stable,  and permanent than a tote, bridge  might be constructed would fill the  bill and benefit all parties.  BULL-DOG CATCHES ON.  Not Barking up tbe  Wrong   Tree  This  Time���������Another Shipper   Added.-  '. Numerous reports well authenticated  reach the Gazette that recent development work done by Bull-dog Brown  on his Bull-dog mineral claim across  the river has been attended with excellent results, and he has good ore to  ship now if the railway were only at  hand to take it.  Different from anything else in the  camp, however, the value is principally in silver, although carrying some  gold as well. i;  While the extent of his find has yet  to be determined, Bull-dog has been  assured that the geological conditions  where he. is working are. orthodox and  would warrant exploitation even without the visible encouragement that he  has in the shape of shipping ore. The  ore which is being taken out is in an  oxodized condition, and the deposit  has most of the characteristics of a fissure vein.  THE MINTO CUP IT IS  New Westminster Lacrosse Team  Have  Brought   Back The  Mug  Following up their success of the  21st when they won from the Shamrocks of Montreal the first match in  the Minto cup series on a score of 6  goals to 5, the New Westminsters a  week later, or on Tuesday last, captured another match on a. score of G  goals to 2, thus putting a final cinch  on it.  The possession of the cup was to be  determined ou the greatest number of  goals for the two   matches,   and   the-*  final standing is 12 to 7.  Westminster will give them a hot-  time when they arrive with the silverware, which eastern lacrosse teams  will now have a long pilgrimage to  make and a hard fight- to get back.

Comparisons may be odious but the travelling public will always make them,  and it would at this juncture seem better policy for the G. N. R. to face  things squarely and try to see them  from the traveller's standpoint. People in the Canadian Similkameen and  in the Boundary who have been used  to travelling by the C. P.

The stop-over at Oroville and  that buffet car are   two  handicaps in  t-he'race for patronage of the  travelling public that the G. N. R. would do  well to  throw off at the earliest possible moment.

Mr. Ross gave as his reason for  Deferring the Yale-Cariboo polling, that there was not time  between nomination   and polling day to get the ballot boxes  distributed to the different polling divisions, and yet he supported a clause in the bill which,  provided    for    compiling    new  voters lists between the issue of  the writ and polling  day.    This  point of Mr. Burrill's is sttougly  taken  and is unanswerable, for  the compiling of new lists in so  short a time  would require a  feat ten times more  difficult of  accomplishment  than   that of  distributing the   ballot   boxes  between nomination  and   polling  day; and- besides,   if Mr..  Ross were sincere in his contention  that there was not time  enough   between     nomination  and  polling day   to  distribute  the ballots, what was the  matter  with   making    nomination  day  in Yale-Cariboo    a   week  earlier than the rest or have its  writ issued a week or two, sooner'?

P. B.   to   build  from Nicola eastward '/for Boundary connection, the vanishing  of all hope  of the V. V. & E.  being built through from  the  Similkameen  to a"B. "C.  coast  terminal.     The  Sunset  attributes it all to the  culpability  of  B. C.'s representatives at Ottawa in getting "extension of the  Y. V. ���������& E. charter for J. J. Hill  without incorporating  in  it a  compelling clause to bring the  line to Vancouver or some other  British    Columbia,    terminus".  The omission to have this compelling elause  was  certainly a  stupid oversight on their  part;  but the Sunset is not warranted  in declaring so 'positively that  Hill will  not  build through  to  the coast because of a subsidy  being granted, for it was under  altogether    different     circumstances that he forbade the giving of a subsidy to another line.  LANDS AND WORKS.  The latest political surprise/is  the dissolution of the Saskatchewan legislature   which followed a few days after the return of Premier Scott from Ottawa where he had been in conference with Sir Wilfrid Laur-  ier.    The feature of  this event  which interests the public most  is the   bearing   which   it   may  have upon the date for holding  the Dominion elections.     That  it was meant to  influence them  to some degree  or other there  are few will be at all disposed  to doubt.     The  Saskatchewan  legislature was elected in  1907,  and it would seem that a more  substantial excuse than the addition of a few seats  would be  necessary to justify putting the  province to the turmoil and expense of another general election so  soon after.    Evidently  Sir Wilfrid is not satisfied with  the verdict  obtained  from  the  Q uebe c    provincial   election  which it is believed he was  in-  strumental in  having  brought  on on the same day as the Ontario election,  and  hopes for a  favorable result from  Saskatchewan.   There arc  two main  reasons why Sir Wilfrid should  prefer a general election in Pi  ,i  or tliesemi-auuuai  .'il'tor that the act  ector 35  days  for  the judicial and clerical work in  compiling his list and getting it  ready for tlie printer, but Duncan Ross was ready to support  a clause in the Aylesworth- bill  which would compress the two  months and the 35 days (with  the time needed for printing  thrown in) into the small interval of less than four weeks, or  to be more exact 21 days, that is  to elapse between the issue of  the writ and polling day. Now  if an angel from heaven, or any  other miraculous agency, were  to complete the compilation  of  re  niior Scott's province.     One  is;  that the old convenient method |  oi'   preparing   the    lists    upon j  which the election will be  hold'!  is   the   same   under   -which   the-  famous  "thin  red   lino"  racket;  was worked���������an advantage that I  was not available in Ontario  or i'���������'  Quebec.   The other is that, there ,!,  is a possibility of arousing roll-  '  gious sectarian cries that might'1'  be used to rally to the   support  of.

IC.Rodgers  was expected to come with them, but  illness a few days before they started  interfered with his plans. He may  come a. little later on., Mr. Rodgers'  interests on Observatory Inlet known  as the Hidden Greek'mines are opening out very satisfactorily. A power-  plant is being put in, and everything  looks favorable for a. big going concern.  Mr. Bradshaw's many friends in  Hedley are pleased to know that he  has recovered froin his indisposition  of last week. He was up on the  Florence group one of those hot days  and the climb put him in a welter of  prcspiration. In the bottom of the  tunnel was a little pool of beautifully  clear cold water from which he took a  drink to cool off and noticed that it  tasted like the ink ho used to suck off  his fingers when a kid in school long,  long ago. But it was arsenic impregnation he was up against and he was  mighty'lucky that' it didn't fix him;  for in this' camp where the principal  sulphide in arsenopyt-ite, any water  that percolates'from mine workings is  bound to be more or lcs.s arsenically  impregnated,but in this case the pool  was strengthened by percolation incantation and evaporation,,and if that  wouldn't'make a decoction that would  knock a, man's eye out worse than tho  wooliest brand of Scotch in the United  Kingdom, then you can go up there  and try it yourself, for Mr. Bradshaw  has no preserve on tho balance of the  water left in the pool after he had  taken his draught. Arsenic is 'jam-up'  medicine for the complexion, but it is  advisable to have it medically proscribed.  For plain sewing, repairing and renovating gentlemen's clothing, try Miss  Elliott, Kingston Ave,  given four months, he haying qualified-  for same ufider the vagrancy clauses.  Fellows that swill booze, won't work,  but make themselves a:nuisauce should  find out by and by that Hedley is a  good place to stay away from,  Mr. Mai-tin Burrell's friends in the  Similkameen were delighted to have a  call from him this week, even if it was  only allying visit. He spent Sunday  in Hedley, and took a run to Princeton. Mr Burrell is full of his English  trip, and relates sftmie amusing experiences in connection with his winter's  work. The trip has built him up phy-  sicially, and he is looking particularly  fit for the campaign, which he 'doesn't  consider onyet. Speaking of tho deferred election in Yale-Cariboo, ho is  as much opposed to tho. principle of  the thing as ever, but is not in the  least apprehensive as to the result, for  finding that tho public condemn: it as  strongly as ho does himself- he is able  to take much comfort from that circumstance. He will possibly not do  much platform work until after the  writs ave issued.  A letter was received last week by  Mr. Bradshaw from George M. Gilbert  who is now in London, and it told the  unpalatable truth that in a. large mineral exhibit of .13. C. ores which he  saw there, ho could find ore from Olalla, Riordan Mountain,' Kruger Mountain and nearly every camp except  camp Hedley, but nary a specimen  from any claim here. Verily, the old  adage "It's a sorry dog that wants  game and won't hunt for it", fits too  well ou Hedley. Until the. people who  should be interested in seeing this  town go ahead, quit blaming everybody except themselves, the place will  never amount to shucks. Many of  those who arc most industrious in  damning the source of their broad  and butter, wore throe years ago  damning the man who gave them  about all they have in the way of public improvements,and what have they  done since to help themselves? Those  who have made the most sacrifice to  help the town have ever had the least  thanks and most abuse.  ���������- WHEN YOU HANKER FOR  Beef,     Pork or  Cared Meats,    -Fish.-or-Poultry"  CALL UP PHONE r>lo.

Conservative Convention  Nominates the,  Rossland Man. /*V-N       ,;  At a 1-u-goiy attended Convention in  Nelson last week, the Conservatives  of Kootenay nominated A..S. Goodeve  of Rossland to be their standard-  bearer, to oppose Smith Curtis in the  forth coming- Dominion elections.  Several names were proposed, among  whom wore R. F.; Green,V.T. H. Scho-  flelcl, >V. A. McDonald, K. S. Lennie,  W.R. Kosii and A. S. Goodeve, hut all  refused for personal business reasons  to allow their names to go to the convention except the last two, when Mr.  Goodeve won out. Mr. Goodeve has  been twelve, years a resident of Rossland, iit ml was born in Guelph, Ont.  He has shown executive ability as a  public man by serving the city in a  public: capacity, both as alderman and  mayor, holding the latter position two  term.*, in sucees-ion. and being acknowledged one of the lu'tsfc nhiyors Rossland ever bach As n public speaker he  is considered one of tber best in the  province, and his general capability  needs no further commenclatipn than  that he was chosen by Premier Me-  ��������� Bride .for the port-folio of provincial  iSecietavy in his first cabinet.  A source, of strength which he will  hring.to the contest also that is highly  appreciated by his supporters, is that  he knows Smith Curtis from the  .ground Up, and-will bo able to make  things warm for him in every corner  of tire riding.  A unique feature of the convention  was th.-tt at every stage of the proceed-,  ings it was held- with open doors,  neither the..press nor anybody else being excluded, while at- the convention  which brought out Smith Curtis, the  press was not granted  admission.'.-  In the evening a. big public meeting  was held which was-addressed by our  own Martin Bnrrill, the Conservative  candidate for Yale-Cariboo, who delivered a masterly speech. The Hon.  W. F. Hanria, provincial secretary for  Ontario and Mr. Goodeve also addressed the meeting.

The object in setting  ��������� aside the land for.tbe reserve is not to  prohibit cutting altogether, but rather  to regulate thecultiug and generally to  treat the forest so that a continuous  crop of timber may be taken off the  area, instead of having it cut over once  or perhaps twice and left waste.  Experience in other lands has demonstrated that such a continuous crop of  forest trees can be grown, and the setting aside of forest reserves is one of  the first steps taken in the introduction  of such a policy in this country. Crop  after crop can be taken off the same  area���������of course at widely separated intervals, for half a. century is a short  period to allow for a crop of timber to  mature.  Tlu- primary object of a. forest reserve  is thus to provide for a perpetual supply of timber. Another important object of the reserves is to protect the water supply, both the domestic supply  for towns and cities and also the supply  -to be used for the generation of power.  The effect of forests at the headwaters  of streams is to regulate the flow so as  to make it constant- throughout the  year���������not a torrent in the spring and a  nearly- dried-tip stream-bed in the heat  of summer. To be valuable as a, source  for power a stream must furnish a constant and regular supply of water.  Very low water in a stream from which  n, town or city derives its water supply  has often meant.-i great deal of sickness, (perhaps in tin* form of an epidemic) for the people of that place.  Where the forest is, the snow melts  more gradually in spring and the  rains of spring and summer soak into  the ground, which acts like a sponge,  and flow off more gradually than  where the forest is removed.  In hilly and' mountainous regions  the cutting oft' of tin; forests has often  led to the washing away of the soil.  This has made it impossible for the  forests to grow again, and moreover  has led to tho silting up of the rivers in  the valleys, which make necessary the  expenditure of large sums in dredging  thern out again. Good examples of  this may be seen in the, neighborhood  of the Appalachian Mountains  in   the  United States.  Some reserves are important as well  in furnishing recreation for the people,  but the two essentia.! objects of the reserves, are those of providing for a  perpetual c-i������>p "F timber nn,d ol l"'0-  tecfing the water supply t'"' power  and domestic use.
