When the Nickel Plate development  was started in the whiter of 1S98 there  were no roads, or even a white man's  house within 30 miles of the mine.

Arthur Alphonson  on tin? Nickel Plate mine and mill in  British Columbia. The early history  of the'mine will.interest many :,  The Nickel Plate property has had  an interesting history, which must appeal to miners and others who have  B. Gi watched, the development of the Similkameen district since Charlie Allison  and James Riordan,. in 1894, staked  three claims for ex-Governor Dewdney  and others. This was the first record  of a mining claim, under the Mineral  Act, on the Similkameen. .The gronM  staked at that time is" now known as  the Climax, Windfall, Winchester  fraction and Lookout���������the north half  of the Nickel Plate property.  In tire same year, Mr. Coultharcl located a claim at or near what is now  the Kingston. It, like the claims of  Allison and Riordan,-were allowed to  lapse; no work being done on them.  Three years later, in Augiist, 1897;  Peter Scott located the Rollo. In 1898  he came back, and after doing the necessary assessment work, located the  King, Princeton and War Horse.  While jit w.ork.on the Rpllo, Scots met  Albert Jacobson and C. Johnson, two  Swedes, who had been grubstaked by  William Y. Williams of Phoenix, B.C.  Jacobson and Johnson located the  Mound and .Copper Cliff claims which  were later purchased by the Yale Min-  ng Company. ,  Wollaston and Arundel, in August,  ���������898, staked the Horsefly, Bulldog,  Sunnyside, Nickel Plate and Copper-  field. The ore from these properties  attracted the attention of Rodgers* to  the Similkameen country.  The Nickel Plate gold property is  situated at an elevation of about 6,000  feet, in the Gold range mountains on  the east slope of the Cascade range, in  the south-west corner of British Columbia, about 24 miles north of the  boundary line of the United States.  In" the fall of 1898, after travelling  for three years, upwards of 136,000  miles, and sampling over 400 mining  properties from Alaska to Guatemala,  Rodgers was on his way to the Cassiar  region of British Columbia, and while  waiting for a boat in "Victoria, William  Wilson, a merchaut of that place,  showed him some gold ore which had  just been located by Wollaston and  Arundel in the Siniilkaineen district.  The proposition struck Rodgers'  fancy, and he started-next day to look  at the property, the journey necessary  to reach the region being over 800  miles in round-about way. The first  batch of samples when assayed at  Anaconda, Mont., went so high that  Rodgers thought the mine had been  salted, so he sneaked out of Anaconda  on a 1,200 mile tramp back to British  Columbia to resample the Nickel Plate  property. However, the re-sampling  assayed fully up to the first lot.  It is surprising that the Nickel Plate  gold region, covering an area of about  15 miles cast and west and five miles  north and south, has up to the present  time met with little or no attempt to  develop any properties, outside of the  Nickel  Plate.  The Nickel Plate mine has produced  up to the end of 1907 about $1,500,000  in gold bullion, the ore averaging in  mill returns about $14 per ton-. There  are few regions on the continent that  will sample, in gold values like the  Nickel Plate, and now that the Great  Northern   Railway   Co.    is    running  Application having been made by  the Masonic brethern resident in Penticton, to the Grand Lodge of British  Columbia for permission to start a  lodge, and being "duly, recommended  by the nearest lodge, at Hedley, the  M. . W. Grandmaster, F. Bowser, issued a dispensation and instructed F.  H.'Barnes, D..D. G. .M., to proceed to  Penticton and institute the new lodge,  which .will work under dispensation  until a regular Charter is granted by  the Grand Lodge.'  The institution ceremony took place  on June 3rd and: the D. D. G. M. was  assisted by prominent brethern from  Vernon, Kolowna   and   Sumine'riahd.  ITS ASiOlTlERE  In Ontario and Quebec^-Both  Governments Are  Sustained  GAINS WERE FOR CONSERVATIVES  Whitney's" Majority in Ontario Largely  Increased, and Gouin's Lead in  Quebec Is Reduced.  Okanagan  lodge  is   launched"   under  particularly favorable circumstances,  with a goodinombership,roll of .excellent material, a veteran Master in the  chair in the person of Capt������Esterbrook  assisted by an able staff of officers  among whom are several pastmasters  and Grand Lodge officers. '  After the institution a banquet was  held in the B. C. hotel at which a very  enjoyable time was spent and many  excellent Masonic addresses delivered  in response to suitable, toasts.  ���������'*��������� SOME UNIQUE PKESEXTS  An interesting feature of the evening was the presentation  to the .lodge  of a  silver-mounted   Master's   gavel  made from a small limb of a 33 year  old cherry tree on   the Southern Okanagan Land Go's estate and popularly  knownas  the  ancient   landmark  of-  Pentjctbn.   The tree has a trunk circumference of oi feet and a spread of  45 feet.   The annual average yield of  its fruit is estimated at $150.;    As yet  the giant tree shows no trace of decay  or failing quantity  or quality of its-  fruit. . The gavel was   presented  by  Bro. L. W. Shatford,   M. P. P.,    and  was accompanied  by   his   expressed  wishes that the vigor and longevity of  of the'ancient tree  together with its  reputation for good fruit bearing qualities might be taken  by  the brethern  as symbolical of the marked greatness  which he trusted would be characteristic of the new lodge's reputation.    -  Two   swords with  their  scabbards  were also presented   by   Bro.   W. M.  Jermyn.     They   were   relics   of  the  PenninsuliurWars,  and together with  the unique gavel will, it is needless to  say, be regarded and treasured as fitting ornaments of the new lodgeroom.  Monday was an all-important day in  eastern Canada.  . On that' day  both  Ontario   and   Quebec  provinces held  their general elections.  : ONTARIO.  In Ontario the Whitney government  were asking another term of office on  the strength of the. record of four sessions. The Liberal government which  went down to defeat four yea is ago  had been in - power for 34 years, although for about the last 20 years of  that time the aggregate popular vote  of the province was against them, but  a skilful arrangement of the constituencies enabled them to hold a majority  of  representatives.  When defeat came it was a crushing  one, the victors of four years ago getting a majority of 3 to 1, or 74 representatives out of a house, of 98. . At the  re-distribution of last session six seats  were added, and the result of Monday's polling was : Conservatives, SO;  Liberals, 17.  QUEBEC.  In Quebec the Conservatives had only 7 representatives out of a house of 70.'  THE WIDER  PATRIOTISM  Eminent British Statesman  ,  Discusses this All-Important Subject and  DEFINES CANADA'S POSITION  Lord Milner Points Out Proper Attitude  of Each Unit of the Empire, and  Emphasizees Fact That To .Empire  as a Whole the Highest Claim.-of  Allegiance Belongs.  As a result of Monday's polling the  latest figures were: Liberals, 30 ^.Conservatives, .16.  . This'only accounts for 46 seats, all  told, so that by the time all returns  are in it is possible.that the opposition's representation plight reach 20 or  more. In any case it shows a heavy  gain for.the opposition. Later returns  give Gouin 58 and opposition 17.  The most notable incident in the  contest was the defeat of. Premier  Gouin by." Bpurassa in the St. James  division of Montreal. Gouin was also  a candidate in Portnenf, where he was  successful.  GEOLOGICAL SURVEY RESUMES  Mr.  DOMINION COPPER RESUMES.  Operations Will  Begin on June 15th at  the Mines and  Smelter.  Charles   Carnsell   Again  on  Ground To Take Up Work  In Hedley Camp.  the  For some time there have been rumors of the early probable opening of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s mines at  Phoenix and their smelter at Boundary Falls; but the period of rumor  ceased when official notice came from  New York to start up on June 15th.  The leading shipping mines of the  Dominion Co.* in Phoenix Gamp are  the Rawhide, Brooklyn, Idaho, Snow-  shoe and Gold Drop. They also have  the Sunset and other properties in  Deadwood Camp.  The smelter has a capacity of-from  750 to 1000 tons per day, and has about  a mouth's supply of fuel ahead, which  will enable them to get going very  shortly after a start is made. When  the-Boundary Falls smelter adds Its  output of matte to that of the Granby  and B. C. the Boundary output will  soon mount up again.  Mv. Lafferty of the Bunk of Montreal stall' at Nicola was in town Monday night, accompanied by Mr. R. L.  Clark of Nicola. Mr. Lafferty was  struck with the appearance of Hedley  and its modern conveniences of waterworks electric lights "&c.  Mr. Camsell's many friends in Hedley were most pleased when he landed  in town about the middle of last week  to resume and complete his work here.  Ho spent a busy'winter in Ottawa in  connection with his maps and reports  as well as in microscopic examination  and determination of the rocks and  ores of the camp; and armed with the  information thus obtained, he is now  in better position than ever to prosecute his work in the camp in a manner  that will promote the interests of all  who are concerned in its development.  Unfortunatety the dead-lock at Ottawa intiy deprive him for a few weeks  longer of the services of his help, but  meanwhile he has abundance of work  that he can do single-handed, such as  plotting the geological formation on  the contour map that will keep him  busy for a month or more.  The excellent preliminary report of  the camp which he made on his return  to Ottawa last has obtained quite wide  publicity and has been copied by the  B. C. mines department in the report  for 1907 just issued. Unfortunately  the limitations of the printing bureau  compelled him to abridge this preliminary report to a degree which made it  take up very much less space than he  would have liked to have at his disposal.  Of his last year's assistants, Mr.  Carnsell may have Mr. Allen back  with him this year, but Mr. Hayes  will be with the party at work in  Phoenix Gamp."*"Mr. Rainecke will be  here to do topographical work this  season.  Mr. Carnsell himself is looking fit,  and filled with enthusiasm for the  season's work.  Lord Milner has contributed a, striking article, of particular interest to  Canadians, to the new weekly paper,  the Standard of the Empire;- ��������� which  has recently appeared ,in Canada.  Writing on the text The Wider Patriotism, Lord Milner declares that unless  this becomes more general, the Empire  cannot continue to exist. He defines  "wider patriotism" as the point of  view of those "whose patriotism is not  limited to the particular portion of the  Empire in which they live, to Canada,  to Australia, to New Zealand or even  to the United Kingdom, but who recognize that the Empire asa-wholehas ,  the highest claim to their allegiance."  Lord Milner regards the word " Empire" in some respects as unfortunate  and a misnomer, especially in regard  to the idea which it conveys as to the  ascendancy and domination' of the  Mother Country over.-the great dominions. \ .,  "Witness," he writes on this point,  "tho unprofitable discussion "which  breaks out from time to time, especially in Canada, over the question of  'loyalty' to the Mother ,Country.  Rightly regfirded there is just as. much, .  or as little, reason for.Great Britain to  be loyal to Canada as for Canada to be  loyal to Great Britain.  "What matters from the point of  view of the wider patriotism is that  they should both be loyal to the larger  body politic, of which they are both  members."  Loid Milner emphasized the natural  repugnancy of the rising nations of  the Empire against being constantly  regarded as minor satellites revolving  round the Mother Country! This independence, and pride, he thinks, however, is a necessary state in the evolution of a new form of union, "a form of  union which shall not cramp the development; or threaten the individuality of the united nations."  Dealing with the failure of past attempts to secure this union due to our  imperfect grasp of the idea of wider  patriotism, Lord Milner says that the  Imperial conference of 1907, by its failure to advance the principle of preferential trade within the Empire, compelled Canada to engage "in a policy  of commercial treaties with foreign  nations, which threatens to reduce and  perhaps ultimately extinguish her preference hitherto accorded to British  goods." He maintains that the future  of the whole Empire depends upon the  willingness of the self-governing dominions to be parties to a. voluntary  union of independent states, of which  the strongest influence is that of race.  Dealing with the phase, Lord Milner  says it is no aspersion on the loyalty  to the Empire of the French in Canada  to say that there are special local  reasons which have made them prefer  British citizenship to the alternative of  absorption into the United States.  And even thus French influence in  Canada can hardly be regarded as contributing to the growth of imperial  sentiment in that Dominion.  In next week's Standard of Empire,  which is published by the London  Standard for circulation throughout  the Empire, Lord Milner will deal with  the question of Tndian immigration to  Canada.  Already the question of transportation to Princeton for the Dominion  Day celebration is beginning to engage public attention, and conveyances are being engaged this far  ahead.

EDITORIAL  COMMENTS  In the death of Louis Frechette, which took place on Sun?  day 31st ult.," French   Canada  loses the one  writer  of eminence which she  has produced,  and who, in the  domain of letters was so far  superior to,-all  his contemporaries   in  Quebec  that no one is left to   receive  and   wear   his mantle.     Louis  Frechette was a literary workman  of great skill an.d   merit  and  his verses,   especially, betray a tender, sensitive and impressible   nature,   not   one   of  high originality or great force,  but honest,  sincere and  religir  ous.   He is  as   a   poet and a  man the best representative of  the cultured French-Canadian.  it was a graceful   but a just  tribute to his work which was  paid him by the  French Academy in crowning* two of his finest productions in 1880, and the  authorities both of Great Britain and France have honored  themselves in   showing  honor  to a Canadian of his great gifts.  While French  Canada retains  her distinctive. political peculiarities  and   aspirations, Louis  Frechette will remain  dear tp  the hearts of the people of Quebec, and even  when the   barriers  which   continue   to   preserve them as a separate nationality have been broken down,  he will bo remembered for the  quaintness and delicacy of some  of his best verses.    His countrymen may console themselves, in  his loss, with the reflection that  English   Canada  has   not  pro  duced his peer.���������Pi'ovince  The   result   of   the  Ontario  elections  and   phenomenal  indorsation   of the   government  must have coihe as a surprise  to: everyone.   In the last parliament  Mr.  Whitney's  majority  was too big, for out of a house  of 98 members  the opposition  had only 24 seats or a government majority of 3 to 1.     For  this election six seats were added and  the  opposition  has  secured only 17 seats making the  government's majority 5 to  1,  ���������which is far too great.     Such  majorities  (except in very rare  cases) are not   good   for   the  .country and nve worse for the  party.    The one feature.about  it -'which is praise-worthy is the  testimonial which the people of  Ontario have given themselves,  for they have left no room for  ���������any.-charge  of fickleness to be  laid against them and they have  shown that when a government  honestly carries out its pledges  they are ready to indorse its  actions.  THK attention of the Lands and Works I)c-  partincnt having been directed to tlie fact  that town lots In a townsite named Prince  Rupert, being a subdivision of Lot 012, Range  ,">, Const District, situated on thu mainland between thu month of the Skcenii.

Now that Smith Curtis has  come out flat-foot in opposition  to the reprehensible practice of  deferring the election in Koot-  eiiay, Duncan Ross will feel  quite lonely in Yale-Cariboo.  Had he come out in the same  manner at. the Vernon nominating convention as Smith Curtis  has now done at the convention  which brought him out he (Mr-  Ross) would have retained some  friends that he has lost and  would have made others. But  as it is, the opportunity was  Jost to him when the Vernon  convention dispersed without,  any declaration on the subject.  That was the time to cross the  Rubicon; "who hesitates is lost."

Duncan Ross is the first man to advocate the introduction of the closure  in the Canadian parliament. He was  impatient  because   the    government  were.being frustrated in their designs  upon.British Columbia and Manitoba.  Whenever- the interests of the party-  machine which grinds grist for Duncan runs counter- to the interests of  the Canadian people, the place for  Duncan's two heels will invariably be  found on the neck of the people. The  government have been told by the  opposition that if they want money  for the militia camps, geological survey or other necesaary branches of  the public service they can have it by  bringing those particular votes forward, but this the" government is too  obstinate to do.

Posters are out for the Dominion  Day celebration at Princeton. There  will be two days' sports, with horse-  racing and.a base "ball tournament as  the main attractions,'for both of which  good prizes are to he given.  Miss Lowndes is giving a concert in  Fraternity Hall on Jun,e 23rd to be assisted by Mrs. J. A. Brown -of .Keremeos. Mrs. Brown's singing has taken  particularly well in Keremeos, and  this opportunity to hear her in -Hedley comes most fortunate.  Ml5. L. W. Shatfoid has, had ,a re-  currence. of his old-ailment that comes  to. hinveacli year with the -dust and  heat. This year the season has been  most favorable thus far, and yet it has  not warded off the attack. .This occurrence wauld seem to confirm the  impressio.n that some vegetable growth  in the district maybe the cause.  E. D. Boeing was up at the Golden  Zone on -Friday last, and came back  hetter pleased than ever with the appearance of that portion of the Camp  Hediey mjneral.zone. The abundance  of ore and general healthy appearance  of same made him confident that the  Golden Zone, is shortly to score a bjg  success.       ' -"���������  L..W. Shatfoid, M, P, P., advises  the Gazette that he has not imposed  -the'condition referred tot in last issue  regarding competition for Gun Club  trophy at celebrations. He has merely  donated a trophy for v competition  among the Gun Clubs in 'Similkameen  riding; and it is presumedthat he expected the usual conditions, which  govern such events to'obtain. It  would be unwise and unfair to the  donor as well, to burden the affair  with conditions from which complications might arise. To make the donor  a court of appeal���������which would inevitably result should a-complication-  arise���������would not be very nice; treatment. It is therefore up to the clubs  interested to settle the thing once for  all, and at once. If the holders of the  trophy felt disposed at any time to  compete for it at any celebration outside their own town, all well and good,  bub let it be wholly voluntary on their  part. The only thing compulsory  about it should be to defend possession on their own ground upon reasonable notice.  Oh Saturday night the itbove company completed a   three nights' engagement in Hedley' and drew good  houses every night, which in   itself is  sufficient evidence  that they possess  the ability    to   please.    Mr.   Murray  has.had long expedience  in  theatrical  work and the management of  stock  companies   owning   theatres,    which  has given him the advantage of a good  opportunity to know and choose his  people and select the plays to suit.   As  a result he has got together a small  company which can put on   pieces  in  very   good   form   with   the   limited  amount of stage   scenery and equipment which they are obfiged  to cany  with .them.     The   play   on  the first  night, "My Nephew's Wife,"  was invincibly funny,    and  the characters  which contributed most to the  merriment were Murray as the Uncle from  Japan,  and   Blanche Swail as Mary  the housemaid.     In    the "Runaway  Match" and "Winning a Woman"  on  .the following nights, Murray had the  leading roles of financier and lawyer  respectively,   and     was   particularly  good^in each.    Other characters were  well sustained,   and especially so   in  view of the fact that lack -of stage  room made it difficult to act. A pleasing feature   was the singing of .the  little tot of six summers, daughter -of  Mr. and Mrs. Murray.   An important  point, and one that is to be particularly commended is that the shows each  night were all of them clean, . and ' the  deportmeut of individual members of  the company during their stay was  such as  to command respect.     It   is  their intention   to come  back again  next fall when they can count on good  'houses.  %  t*  .

Please  Our esteemed contemporary, the  Hedley Gazette, with apparently no  fear of the ' sky-tpilots' or the Pilot  who will, it is hoped, finally steer his  frail bark or barque across the bar, has  undertaken that stupendous enterprise, "the .union of the. churches."  Brother, the object is good and you  have our benediction but we do not  think those pilot fellows who have not  learned to box the compass yet will  profit by your interference. Let us  rather write of -gold, of copper, of common coal, something materialistic and  for the development of our great resources. Be good, but do not worry  about the churches ; the great Unseen  Hand is shaping them and all the  human family into a common brotherhood, when editors will quarrel no  more and the lion and the lamb  (inside) will lie down together. Now,  what are the latest copper quotations ?  ���������Similkameen Star.  Only 13;'' cents, by gum ;  and it used  to be 25.  The Gazette was pleased this week  to have a call from Mr. -A..'P, McDonald, who came in on Saturday night  from Edmonton, where he has been'in  business since he left here in the spring  of 1006.   Mr. McDonald is enamored of  Alberta and   the  Edmonton portion  thereof,  which he regards as a huge  field for the   millions  <if  prosperous  people who will soon make their homes  in that land.    When asked about the  business failures,  he stated that the  slight check-in business activity which  had been magnified into a financial depression was the natural consequence  of a combination of unlucky happenings, which had their beginning in the  unusually severe winter of 1907.   The  demand for coal and the insufficient;  equipment of coal mines round about  Edmonton that were owned and operated locally led owners to invest heavily in the spring of 1907.   All fur Coats  and heavy clothing  which the  merchants had on hand had been sold out  before the winter of 1907 was half over,  and the merchants not to  be caught  again had stocked up heavily in these  lines.  Upon these conditions came the  general financial depression, together  with a poor crop and a mild winter,  and some failures resulted.   Real es-  tate, he says, did not fall, except in a  few cases where holders were forced to  sell, and in such cases  there was a  slight drop but nothing like a sacrifice.  Regarding Hedley property,. Mr. McDonald said he was   better  satisfied  than ever with  his investment here,  and is confident that Hedley will pull  out all right.    He has a good barber  shop in Edmonton where he has kept  five men at work.    Real estate was  quite high in Edmonton when he went  there, and for that reason he did not  plunge but stuck to his own business.  Mr. McDonald goes back to Edmonton  this week.

Much Valuable Timber Wealth Needless-  .       ly Sacrificed for Lack of Care.  The railway builder has  too often  -/ sounded the* death-knell of the forest.  Only of late years  has  the necessary  care   been'  exercised   to prevent   the  wholesale destruction of forests along  railway lines in course of construction.  The Canada Atlantic and the Temis-  caining and Northern Ontario railways  are examples of railway lines built, in  some potions, through valuable forests  '���������without any consider able damage having   been  done  to  the woods by fire.  During the construction of the former-  its  builder,  Mr. John  R. Booth,  the  well-known lumberman, laid down for  his contractors such regulations in regard to burning brush along the right  of way and setting fires generally that  .   no. serious "fire took place.    Constant  and  careful  patrolling of the  line of  .the T. .& N. O. ha.s likewise reunited in  an almost complete absence of forest  - , fires.   ���������'.:. .-.'���������'���������'.  An  unfortunate-contrast .to this is  -.presented  in   the  construction-'of the  C. P. R. lines in Northern Ontario and  British 'Columbia.     These   were  constructed before   the -'days   of   careful  oversight in   the matter of fires'aldtig  the right of way.    In 1S(39 a .fine' green  forest extended  from  Nipigon,   Ont.,  ���������    westward -to   within  a .comparatively  short distane'efof Winnipeg.   The. passage of "the troops through this country  in 1809 wns partljr responsible for its  being burned over; but the building of  the railway in '1882-84'was responsible  ���������for a'far greater proportion of the loss.  Around Canmore, B. C,  and Kicking  Horse Lake, too, occurred conspicuous  'examples of .'devastation  wrought by  forest fires .arising from  CVP. R. con-  ; strnctibn.       ' ��������� -' ;  In tlie building of the new transcontinental line, the Grand Trunk Pacific,  better things arc'promised."..'As a-; re-'  suit of the co-operation of the-Domin-  ion and New Brunswick governments,  it is announced that a strong fire patrol  -���������-���������-"will" be maintained along the line of  the railway, through the latter province,, where valuable timbered areas  are traversed. West of Edmonton",  too. along the route of the railway, the  patrolling of the line has been arranged  for and is already in operation.  Is A  Good,  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  l"s the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous " Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in. Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects. It is the mining and business  centre of the  Similkameen  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be"one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway; and with the advent of this road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.

Vowell,  Superintendent,  Investigates Indian Unrest in North.  - .(Vancouver Province)  The.unrest among northern Indians,  and which recently culminated in several sensational incidents is ascribed  to the agitation, started by Chief Joe  Capilano of-ttfe North Vancouver reserve in favor of tlie restoration of  their former hunting grounds.  Mr. A. W. Vowell, superintendent of  Indian Affairs for British Columbia,  has returned"from an inspection tour  to Fort Simpson and the Indian reserves along the Naas River. He was  preceded by Mi*. O'Connell of Nanajjno,  constable of the Indian Department.  "Everything is quiet up the coast,"  said Mr. Vowell to The Province at the  Hotel Vancouver.    "There is no doubt  that the lies circulated  by  Chief Joe  Capilano respecting the alleged promises  made  to him  by   King Edward  havffsomewhat disturbed the Indians.  It has resulted in the widespread belief  that their original proprietary  rights  to  the. land are  to be  restored.    No  arrests were made by Constable O'Oon-  nell along the Naas River, as he could  not learn anything about alleged disturbances up there.   No complaint respecting the alleged hold-up of timber  cruisers, by the  Naas River.   Indians  ever  reached me, officially.     My tri*p  north was an ordinary tour of inspection,   and my report will be duly forwarded to Ottawa."  ATTEMPTED ROBBERY  One or More Undesirable- Citizens in the  Region of the Nickel Plate.  On Sunday evening last when Mr.  and Mrs. Sampson,,-accompanied by  T.- C. Revely. were taking a stroll over  to Olmiax bluff, Mr. Sampson's cottage  was entered, trunks broken open and  contents scattered about. The parties  were evidently after cash but all they  got was about $1.00, as Mr. Sampson-  had banked his earnings. The Nickel  Plate has.heretofore borne a good reputation and residents were never  bothered in this way before. All are  now interested in locating the guilty  parties.  METEOROLOGICAL.
