The geological work of the season  1908 was again carried out largely in  camp Hedley, in continuation of the  work of 1907. 'On retirement of the  party from the field in 1907,, about one-  third of the topographical work yet  remained- uncompleted : while . the  whole of the mapping of geological  formations was left over until the  season just ended. All this work was  finished before the close of this season.  In the geological investigations the  writer was again assisted by Mr. J. A.  Allan;- while Mr.-L. Reinecke had  charge of the topographic work.  On the completion of the Hedley  sheet, Mr. Reinecke moved his party  up to Otter flat on the Tula meen river,  where work was commenced on a new  topographic sheet. It is intended that  this sheet shall cover an area of about  200 square miles ; forming :i rectangle  with sides about 12 miles in an east  and west direction, by 17 miles north  and south. The sheet will cover many  ^important econpmic deposits. Gold  and copper ores are being developed  invthe north-west portion.; ivcoal field  lies in the so*uth east; magnetite,  chromite and molybdenite are known  to occur in the south and west; while  gold and platinum placers, are being  worked in - the * bed of the Tulameen  river and' several of its tributaries.

'"    ''    <  MIXING DEVELOPMENTS  In the Hedley camp and adjoining  district, except by two or:three companies, little additional development  work has been undertaken or carried  out during the past year. Nearly all  the mineral claims in the camp have  been Crown granted and the British  Columbia mining law does not compel  owners of these to do more than pay  the annual taxes ; consequently, much  promising prospecting ground is tied  up, with nothing being done to demonstrate for prospective investors its  potential wealth.  DALY REDUCTION COMPANY  The Daly Reduction Company had a  most successful year, the weather being so favourable during the winter  that the whole plant was in operation  almost continuously throughout the  year. The lack of water for power,  and the freezing up of the flume during some of the winter months, had in  former years necessitated the closing  down of the mill and the suspension  of most of the mining operations, but  the weather was so mild during the  last winter that no difficulty was experienced in keeping the flume free  from ice. Moreover, under the present management the efficiency of the  stamp mill and cyanide plant has  been greatly increased, and the daily  average tonnage of ore treated brought  up to about 130 to 135 tons.  At the mine itself, where a year aj?-o  ore was being stoped only from the  Nickel Plate, and Sunnyside No. 2,  large ore bodies laying between these  two places have since been exposed  and are being worked at Sunnyside  No. 3 and Sunnyside No. 4. The former  of these two is worked by an incline  shaft, Avhich is down about 175 feet.  The latter is at present being worked  as a large glory hole,  but the inten-  was taken up, and the  gave vent to its witheld enthusiasm.  From the top of a giant flag staff two  hundred and fifty( feet in theight, the  largest American flag ever made,  broke loose,-and the exposition" city  was buried in a cloud of flags, banners  and gayly colored bunting.  Oyer the blue waters of Elliot Bay  came the thundering salute of twenty-  one guns from ships of. the American  Navy, and re-echoing,this rang back  the answering reply from the grim  muzzles of the guns of the Mikado.  The programme marking the most  important happening of general interest ever held, in the Northwest,  was particularly elaborate and interesting. Its commencement was announced by the firing of the national  salute from the guns of a mountain  battery stationed-on the grounds, and  this was the signal for the movement  of the military, march to the gener<il  review. This .was made up of one  thousand regular troops, two batteries of mountain and coast artillery,  two companies of cavalry, battalions  of marines and blue jackets from the  navy and two companies of marines  and sailors from the Japanese Cruisers  Aso and Soya. These were drawn up  in parade rest just back of the amphitheatre.  News conies of the sudden death of  Thus. Currie, which occurred last  week on the trail up Dry Creek about  four or five miles from Beaverdell. He  and his partner, J. A. Tuzo, were on  their way to do work on their claims  on the south fork of Dry Creek, when,  feeling a little faint, he sat down on a  log by the trail and remarked to his  partner that his breath seemed to  be getting short. A few moments later  he toppled off the log and died suddenly. The remains were taken to Greenwood for interment.  Deceased had a number of valuable  mining-interests on the West Fork of  Kettle River, particularly on Wallace  mountain and oh Currie Creek which  was called after him, being one of the  early- prospectors who turned their  attention to the portion of the'West  Fork district drained by Beaver Creek.  His home was at Boston, Massachusetts and long as he lived in  British Columbia ;he. never became  naturalized. For a number of years  past he had a good friend in his part-  J. A. Tuzo, who supplied the  and kept the aifaiis of  the paitnership in order, that when  the time should come around for them  to realize from their holdings they  could do'so without having to sacrifice any of them.  Deceased was a genial companion at  the camp fire and well used to pioneer  life. Many kindly recollections of  him will remain with the prop.sectois  on the West Fork.

ADJOINING  DISTK-ICTS  In the adjoining Hedley districts the.  most important sections in which development has been going on are, the  Henry Creek claims, situated on the  south side of the Siniilkaineen river  two miles above Hedley and the  Golden Zone Group, lying to tlie  north, about 11 miles by wagon road.  HENRY CREEK DISTRICT  In the Henry Creek district some  local excitement was caused during  the last winter and spring, owing to  the finding of-free gold in a vein on  one of the claims belonging to the  Pollock Alines Company.  Continued on Pnge Two.  Judge Morrison handed out a sentence at the assizes in Greenwood last  week that will tend to make robbery  unpopular. The Newman brothers  who were proven guilty of the Bridesville hold-up were given twenty years  each, in the provincial penitentiary,  and Ben Hart who turned King's evidence was given sentence, which  allows him freedom, but he has to report to authorities once a month.  On the night of December 19th last  the Newman brothers accompanied by  Hart held up the Great Northern agent  and the post office at Bridesville se-  i curing $76 in all. Ben Hart was arrested a few weeks later and confessed  the crime implicating the Newman  brothers who were afterwards extradited from the American side.  At the trial today Hart's evidence  was corroborated by a woman who  made masks for the men, also by the  Great Northern agent and the post office clerk. The Newmans offered no  defence but asked for leniency.  The School Board have been severely   criticised-   and   abused   in   some,  quarters   for  the  prompt  and   firm  measures  taken to assist the health  officer in  confining the scarlet fever  cases in quarantine.     The board unanimously  wish  to call attention  to  able articles written on the subject of  dealing with scarlet fever in the towns  and cities south of us; also,  to say  they stand ready as a body to unanimously assist the health, officer in the  interests of the community by insisting on a strict quarantine  being kept  overall scarlet fever cases.     Anyone  not agreeing with their actions please  communicate with the Board.  Signed���������S. L. Smith  J. A. Schubert     .  F.H.French  THE MOTE AND THE BEAM  The sale of Prince Rupert lots netted  over a million dollars.  Eruption of Alt. Etna is expected to  take place shortly and people in  vicinity are warned to remove to safer  quarters.  The  "holy Willie"   who   runs   the  Penticton Press, when not otherwise  engaged as lay preacher,  is quite unconcerned and unabashed at his recent  conviction of falsehood and hypocrisy;  and to still further illustrate the depth  of moral depravity to which he is prepared to go, he started in last week to  use   Carrie Nation's   hatchet on the  ten  commandments.    The particular  one of the ten which his tomahawk  splintered was that which saith: "Thou  shalt not bear false -witness against  thy neighbor," for he gave his readers  to understand that the editor of this  paper had  been guilty of the awful  sin of ''golfing on Sunday," when as a  matter of fact the one accused had yet  to strike  his first  blow at golf, either  on Sunday  or any  other day���������a fact  of which  the golfers  in Hedley are all  very well aware.   Now in making this  statement to prove that "holy Willie"  has not hesitated to add the offense of  "decalogue busting"  to hypocrisy and  falsehood, of which he was formerly  proven guilty,  we do not want to be  misunderstood as admitting that anyone   who may   have played golf in  Hedley on Sunday is guilty of any I  heinous sin.     In fact we don't think  they were nearly as sinful as  "holy  Willie" was when he paid his first and  only visit to Hedley,  riding in on the  hurricane dock of a  cayeuso  rustling  copy for the Press on a certain Sunday  in June or July, 1907.   The Gazette believes  that Sunday was made for man  and not  man for the Sundaj",  just as  "holy AVillie"   believed that  that particular Sunday in the summer of 1907,  was made for "Holy Willie" and good  for so  much copy  for the  Press with  perhaps a stray subscription  or two   "our.  I. L. Beardorffy road supervisor for  the Similkameen District, returned  on Saturday night after a trip over  the roads in the eastern portion of the  riding including a pilgrimage up the  Kettle River to Beaverdell and Carmi.  At Beaverdell he found a bouyant  hopeful spirit among the claim owners  and a great deal of development work  in progress. ^  Situated as they are about 50 miles  from  the   railway   at Midway,   and  having to haul that distance in order  to realize  on  their' ore,   they are  up  against a handicap   that  would  put  any ordinary camp out of  the  race ;  but not so'with  the claim  owners on  the West Fork.  Foi-yeats they hadn't  even a wagon road and for a considerable part of each  year had  no means  of   communication   except   over   the  "high-water   trail"   which   at   points  was calculated  to try  the nerve of a  mountain goat.     Against  that handicap they clamored for a road,  until  finally in 1901 they got it,  (.such as it  was) and ever since then  they have  endeavored to show the government  and outsiders generally, that they had  not been   clamoring for   what   they  didn't need for every year ore shipments have been coming out.     Year  by year the road has  been unproved  as fast as funds could be got to put it  in shape and thanks to the persistent  effort of representative Shatford   in  that behalf it is getting into fairly  passable shape,  but supervisor Dear-  dorff hopes to see it better.  The Sally group has been the most  extensive .shipper and at the present  time has a considerable quantity taken  out ready to haul.  A new producer is coming into the  lists in the Bounty fraction owned by  Tom Henderson, E. G. dimming, A.  D. Broomfield and others. They have  put in-a small concohtrator on Dry  Creek to concentrate their ore before  shipping, and thus save the expensive  haul of rock matter. The crushing is  being effected, by a sort of arrastra  arrangement and the separation of  sulphides and rock matter T^y means  of jigs. They have rich ore to realize  from and when concentrated the  values should run away up.  The Bell is a property from which  much is expected. It is shut down at '  present, but is still under bond and  there is very straight evidence that  the shut down is merely preparatory  to the opening up of work on a scale  altogether greater than has yet been  witnessed in the camp. .  A year ago the Rambler made  several shipments and could keep on  doing so, but they are justified in  waiting for a railway because .a fifty  mile wagon haul makes too great a  hole in the profits.  Many claim-owners are pegging  away on their claims and very rarely  is there seen a camp where more  earnest work has been done by individual claim owners than on the-  West fork of Kettle River. Neither  is this confined to the properties on  Walhice Mountains, but holds good  for the whole river from James Creek  to Carmi and Arlington camp, and the  camps on Beaver Creek including  Triple Lakes on the divide between  Beaver and the main river.  During the present summer a piece  of wagon road is to be put in on Dry  Creek, 'for the spectacle of conveying  supplies to shipping mines by pack  train is one which the department of  Works can hardly afford and still  claim the credit of helping the. mining  industry���������especially where no serious  difficulties exist for building wagon  roads.

Geological Survey Summary  CAPITAL AND LABOR  * CO-PARTNERSHIP.  (Toronto World.)  Co-partnership as a means of  unifying the interests of capital  and labor.is attracting considerable attention in England at  the present inonent. It is not  new either, as a principle, or in  its practical application, but recent events, notably the acceptance of the scheme proposed  by Sir Christopher Furness in  connection with his extensive  shipbuilding business has given  it a fresh impetus. Already  progress has been made during  the last twenty years and sufficient.data have been accumulated to satisfy even the most  skeptical that co-partnership  arrangements between employers and employed are not only  perfectly feasible, but remarkably successful.  Some time  ago an important  address  was  delivered  on  the  subject by  Mr. A.  J.  Balfour,  leader     of    the    Conservative  party, in his  capacity  of president of the Labor Co-partnership Association.   Industrial copartnership in his view was not  a plan  which  looked well only  on paper, nor a method of dealing   with   industrial   problems  which  commended itself to the  theorist,  but which the practical man repudiated. He pointed  to the  actual  facts   of contemporary industry as proving that  the general scheme the association advocated  was  one which  if tried  in   the proper manner  and by the  proper people could  produce all those happy results  which  its  sanguine originators  hoped from it.    Their ideal was  complete    co-partnership,   said  Mr. Balfour,   and  lie explained  it  as  meaning   that   all  those  who carried on the work should  be associated  as .partners in. all  Continued from Page" One  This  Company    owns    five    Crown  granted   mineral claims, on which a  great  deal   of   prospecting has  been  done by tunnels, shafts and open-cuts.  GEOLOGY  OF THE HENRY CREEK  DISTRICT.   .;,  ,The country rocks of these  claims  are interbedded limestones, argillites,  and   black   volcanic tuffs,  belonging  probably to a higher horizon than the  limestones and quartzities of Hedlev.  A stock of monzonite resembling the,  darker variety of the   Hedley mon-,  zonite cuts  these sediments and occasionally sends   off tongues   into the  sediments.    The sediments stand in an  almost   vertical   attitude   and   strike  north.and south.     Fissures have been  developed  in   these   in  a north   and  south  direction,   and  in many  cases  dikes  of andesitic and  lamprophyric  character occupy these fissures.   The  lower workings are on a strong and  well  defined fissure,  which  has been  explored for nearly 400 feet.    This fissure varies in width from a few inches  up to  ten or twelve feet,  and is filled  with crushed and  broken rock,   traversed  by small  quartz  veins  which  cement the  broken fragments.    Mis-  pickel occurs abundantly in  the main  fissure,  besides appearing in considerable amount in  the numerous  small  parting   planes   which    traverse   the  sedimentary rocks   in   the neighborhood of the monzonite.  The upper workings of these claims  are on a well defined quartz lead,  which cuts both the sediments and  the monzonite. The quartz is well  mineralized with rnispickel, pyrite,  and galena, and is said to carry good  values in gold in the sedimentary  rocks. In the. monzonite the values  are not sufficiently high to induce  prospecting.  Many claims have recently been  taken up in this neighboshood, and on  some of those laying to the'east of the  Pollock- mines there are indications  that values in silver may be obtained.  ,v r.J   i .*/,*        i /���������!.:> -Hi*"    , '���������        If    "-J-Vii'A >  variety  is cut .by a< lafge  bathohthic      '    -IX ������A  mass of coarse reddish.gramte.  ,     ���������    '      -  -JU.-i .'   ;ii     ii' i.j    ������rl't:   ���������������������������   ,    '-,      ''.'  , Latei; in ago t|ian all of the above-  inentto'nect'' rocks, an intrusion of  granite porphyry of dyke like proportions has been injected between  the sediments and the coarse grained  granite, exhibiting well marked contacts with each of these rocks. .  The four mineral claims have been  staked on a weii defined and persistent  quartz vein which can lie traced by its  outcrop for about 1,000 feet in an east  and west direction. \, This vein cuts  both:thefine grained granite and the  sediments. In the granite it occupies  a strong fissure varying in width from  two to foiir feet, but on passing into  the. sediments, it appears to split up  into four or five smaller veins which  become lost under the drift and may  possibly pinch out altogether.,  It is a true fissure vein, and, in the  granite���������when not much oxidized and  well exposed���������shows a well marked  banded structure due probably to the  filling of an open space. In the sediments, and in the contact zone where  oxidation goes deeper, the true nature  of the vein is not so apparent. The  gangue is a"hard, white quartz and the  ore minerals found in it are pryite,  arsenopyritc, zinc blende and chal-  copyrite. ��������� Besides the secondary  minerals due to'oxidation- and surface  alterations,- a later fracturing of the  vein has taken place and these fractures filled with secondary sulphides,  The walls of the vein are. clean and  often show slickensided faces. The  values are in gold and are said to be  lower in the granitethan in either the  contact zone or the sediments.

This  group    consists of   four claims  lying  at an  elevation of about 5,900  ft. above sea level. They were first located in 1900 by the present owners, who  had been doing development work on  them annually until a year ago when  a 5-stamp mill was brought   in  and  erected on the ground. Actual milling  of ore. began  about the beginning of  August,  but owing to a lack of water  there  were   numerous   interruptions,  and about three weeks later the plant  had to close down.  The geological conditions on this  group are as follows :���������  A belt of sedimentary rocks consisting of limestones, quartzites and some  tuffs covers the northern portion of  the claims running from east to west  across all of them.

The  repair gang was put on at once, and  by Friday noon the water was again  flowing through the penstock. ������������������  Twenty-mile Creek began to rise  rapidly with Thursday's rain. Atone  point a short .distance below tha west  fork it was in danger of washing.out a  considerable portion of the wagon  road, but prompt action on the part of  road for man, Harry Rose, saved the  situation. With the assistance of  plenty of dynamite, he broke up a jam  of rocks and drift wood that was in  <langer of diverting the stream from  its regular course.  Mr. H. A. Hincks, of the B. N. A.  staff, received notice last week that he  was to bo moved to Victoria and his  place here will be taken by Mr.  Chamberlain from the Toronto branch  who left Toronto on the 26th, and ar-  rivee in Hedley by Tuesday's stage.  While the change will mean for Mr.  Hincks the advantages .of city life  after a sojourn on the frontier, it will  in all probability entail a great deal  harder work and less time for out door  enjoyments than he has been able to  get in Hedley.  This week L. W. Shatford, M.P.P.  leaves for the east accompanied by  Mrs. Shatford. During his absence  Mr. Shatford will submit to a series of  operations by a specialists Rochester,.  N. Y., with the hope that the ailment  from which he has suffered for years  may be permanently cured. The specialist under whose treatment he is  going is admitted by the medical profession in both Canada, and the United  States to stand in a class by himself  in the treatment of ailments of the  nose and throat.  H  morning  of the B. N.  transferred^  '' "ACMegriiVfo. D^G1. M./Noi 9 has  '"received the 'dispensation from the  Gi'and"Lodge.of Biitish Columbia for  a new lodge at Princeton, and will  proceed there on. Friday June 4th to  institute.  The school re-opened on Wednesday  last after/ being closed.forfour'days as  ii "precaution against the spread of  scarlet^, fever. There were only two  cases in the town and eachrof an ex-,  ceedingly mile] type; nevertheless it  is much better to be on, the safe side  and take every precaution against the  spread of any ailment of that.kind.  We have not heard any of the criticism referred to in another column  and think tlie people as a whole will-  indorse any steps taken -.to prevent the  spread. In' fact some wondered that  the school re-opened so soon after be-  iner closed for such a cause.  .A number of mud slides were caused  at different points by .the long steady  rain an Thursday last. Rocks loosened by the rain also tumbled into the  roadway at various points. One' rather  amusing situation presented itself to  the road foreman when he went up  with a. rig and supply of powder tp  blow out the. jam. On his way back  he found that a slide filled up the  roadway which made it impossible to  get the team back. Finally- -they  managed to make a way to lead the  horses singly over the slide, but had to  leave ,the rig there until the slide  could be cleared away.  t Chief engineer J. H. Kennedy came  up from Keremeos through Thursday's  rain, accompanied by A. H. Hogeland,"  chief engineer of the Great Northern,  and J. D. Porter, of Porter Bros, contractors. They went on to Princeton  the same afternoon and must have  made an early start back next morning as they arrived here in the forenoon. No time was lost here, but  they hustled on for Keremeos where  the afternoon train had been instructed to wait for them. Some think thac  the visit portends early opening of the  work beyond Princeton, although the  party had no time to go further up  the river than Princeton.  Walter Beam, M. E., who has made  various professional visits to Hedley  in connection with examination for  sale of the Nickel Plate, .returned last  week. The corps of diamond drillers  who were left at work on the property  when Messrs. Beam and Merrill; left  several weeks ago, have been busy ever  since and doubtless they have further  data for Mr. Beam's consideration. It  was understood that the diamond drill-  workTaid out in connection would take  until about August, but it is possible  that if the results obtained should be  of a "sufficiently decisive character the  decision of the prospective purchasers  may be made sooner. -      '  Mr.,A. Pleasance reports a very interesting trip which extended,- over a  considerable section of- western Canada. He went eastward as far as  Calgary and Edmonton and northwest  to Prince Rupert. The latter did not  strike him .very favorably. He made  the trip northward on the S.S. Rupert-  City and had an opportunity to test  the efficacy of wireless by sending an  aerogram from the north country to  Seattle. His message was caught instantly by one of the California stations and that station flashed it immediately to Seattle and he had his  answer in less than five minutes. The  reason given for his message being  caught in California before Seattle  was; that the point from which it was  sent was too close in shore and in  places the coast range of mountains  intervened.      .  Mrs. Schubert, senior, mother of our  townsman, J. A. Schubert,  is visiting  her son and his family. Mrs. Schubert  has the honor of being a pioneer of the  pioneers   and   the only woman who  accompanied the famous overland expedition across the Canadian plains in  the   early  sixties   and   through   the  mountains to  the interior of British  Columbia.    That   expedition,    if the  records of it are preserved,  will in the  years to come,  as it does even now,  read like a romance.   A few survivors  only remain,  among whom may be  mentioned A. L. Fortune, J. A. Mara  and Mrs   Schubert.     The  expedition  left Ontario and by early summer of  1802 it was joined at Fort Garry by  Mr.  and Mrs.   Schubert, and it took  five and one-half months to cover the  distune- from Fort Garry to Kamloops  on horsbback   A few years were spent  placer mining  in Cariboo  before Mr,  and  Mrs.  Schuburt  made  their way-  down into tho  Okanagan and settled  .Word came to Tim Griffin last week  ^forning fiimoTthe'deathtof JuiflestSJ  Bruce his' partiier^ twbichjip.cc'urredifp  Spokane, where he had. gone, for treat.-, j  merit. Bruce had been subject to fits-  of- ah epileptic nature for a year' or  two. He was well known' in Hedley  where he owned property, and worked  at his trade of carpenter. His birthplace was Walkerton, Ont., in which  town his uncle, John Bruce, was for  years police magistrate. There was a  report at Keremeos that lie had died  in an operation, bu.t his partner,  Griffin, says there is no foundation for  it, as he had a letter from him about  a week before and he. had not spoken  of any intended operation.  Ex-governor Dewdney spent Saturday night in Hedley. He recently returned from a trip to England during  which'-time he was for two weeks a  guest of the Duke and Duchess of  Argyle, better known to Canadians as  the Marquis of Lome and Princess  Louise by. which titles they were known  during their vice-regal term in Canada  from 1878 to 1883. They are both of  them enthusiasts for* Canada and  speak of their, particular delight in  their western trip over the prairies  .and through the mountains of B. C.  in advance of- the railway. The Duke-  of Argyle has Canadian ��������� maples and  pine-trees' growing on his estate in  Scotland, which he had imported and  planted there. Mr. Dewdney is in excellent health and as vigorous as ever  in;'spite of his advanced years and the  strenuous life which he spent for so  many years on the frontier.  'vA-a-OKiut >"  <"!

Shatford M.P.P. left on Saturday for Victoria wheie he will stay  a few d<iys, Mr. Shatford will most  probably go on to New York to undergo an operation. -  The Press in its last issue makes the  announcement that a "Hundred Mile  Electric Railway is to be built in the  Okanagan to be completed in eighteen  months. This line I learn is to be  built from Vernon to Kelowna on the  east side of the lake a*nd to Summer-  land on the west side. Where do we  get-off at for Penticton, 1" wonder?  Summerland is described as an important fruit growing point. Penticton  being a large manufacturing town  with a small orchard adjacent of about  five thousand acres with most of the  trees bearing about the '--time this air  line is booked to be completed, is not  apparently to have a station at all. It  is stated that the proposed line will  greatly aid in the. rapid collection of  fruit at Vernon Avhich' it is proposed  tp make the seat of a large fruit exchange.���������H'm H'm���������Well if the C.P.R.  build their proposed line I am thinking that Penticton will give Vernon a  run for its money as a fruit-growing  and collecting centre.  I also read that Okanagan Falls will  probably be harnessed in order to  furnish power. I have "ma xloots"  about this as I think-the-Southern  Okanagan" Land Co. have a charter  embracing the Falls for the purpose of  running' a light railway to the Boundary and not Vernon.  Rifles to right of them,  Rifles to left of them,  Rifles in.front of them, etc.  This was almost the appearance  that Penticton presented on the 21th  not really quite so bad but almost.  This strange phenomena was caused  by our local riflemen coming in irotn  all directions to fire for The Daily  Mail and Empire and W.T. Shatford's  cups. The range presented quite an  animated appearance, a large number  of ladies and babies being present to  watch Daddy win the cup. They also  very kindly provided refreshments to  the thirsty riflemen.  Captain Duncan acted as range  officer assisted at the butts by Messrs.  Nicholson and Price.  The team of eight firing in the  Empire competition made a grand  total of 650 points. J. R. Mitchell won  the Shatford cup with the very respectable score of eighty-seven.  Three ranges were fired at viz : Two,  five and six hundred yards, seven  rounds ait each range.  Con Mckinnon whilst working on  the Government road at Gueen Lake  on Monday was severely injured by a  premature explosion of dynamite  while he was tamping in a hole.  ���������Watch for programme of 1st July  sports at Penticton.

THE   HEDLEY,.. GAZETTE,   JUNE 3,! 1009.  The Mete and The.Beam:  Continued fron Page One,  -  bagged on the side.     The Pharisees of  a certain  age   had about   tne  same  narrow-inconsistent    views   of    the  Sabbath audits uses as   "holy Willie"  seems  to. have,   but, the  most moral  man  that the world  ever  saw   told  them some plain things about that.  Also "holy Willie" thinks  Hedley a  ' very   wicked   place���������"a    wide   open  town"  he  calls it,  and   he blames the  local magistrate for permitting such.  This is the first time we have heard of  Hedley being a "wide open town" and  the people of Hedley will not thank  ;- "holy  Willie" for  the  slander.      He  doesn't say  what  particular form of  " wickedness he alludes to that he seemed to  have  ferreted  out on   that particular Sunday.     If it be the dropping  of the stamps in the. D. R. Co's mill he1  ,.    refers to,   it was unfortunate  that he;  connived at that.wickedhess by going  through the mill "that Sunday and ap-'  -pea-ring to be very much interested in  it.   As for any blame attaching to the.  local    magistrate     for     any'    illegal  practices 'that -may-exist, here or else*  where, it may be well for him to know  that   long   ago   the  local  magistrate  learned the very important lesson that;  where no responsibility  rests on him  he should take none.    He hiis never  interfered in any way in the constable's  work;  neither has the constable ever:  been thwarted  in his work  by failing  to have any information taken that he  sought  to lay.     Therefore  the local,  magistrate is in no  way  culpable for  any law-breaking that may exist in  Hedley.     Neither do we  think that,;  all things considered,  Hedley is less  '_ moral than'other places in the district,  the   simulated  holy  horror of "holy"  Willie" to the .contrary notwithstanding. .  The Press accuses us of introducing  religion into this controversy. Beg  pardon ; the Gazette has done nothing  -of the kind. We only wrote of hypo-"  crisy; butif "holy Willie's",code of  moral ethics makes religion and hypocrisy synonymous terms, interchangeable at will, that is his misfortune not  purs.  Even great men like Shakspeare are  said, tohave busied themselves in this  ...life' preparing an 'epitaph for their  tomb. The immortal Burns has spared  the editor of the Press all anxiety in  that direction, for he prepared one. It  reads thus :  "Here Holy Willie's sair worn clay   ,  Taks up its last abode;  His soul has ta'en the ither way;  I fear, the left-han'road."

"I'm only doing this," he muttered, "because getting in on the ground  floor has never made any money for  me in a business way, and it's up  to me to get even with the world  somehow."  Convincing himself by this specious  reasoning, he softly pushed up the  window and climbed inside. \  How  He  Enjoyed   It.
