Encouraging reports of the manner  in which the interior of the province  in the Hope district is filling with  ranchers are brought back to the city  by Mr. George D. McKay, provincial  timber inspector, who returned this  after-noon after- a visit of inspection of  the forest fire protection service.  "It is four years since my last visit  to the district, and I was amazed at  the great alteration," said Mr. McKay  "All along the route of the new Pacific Highway the land is occupied  with ranches, and the country looks  prosperous."  "Mr. McKay states that there is deep  snow on the Coquihalla trail between  Hope and Nicola, so that Fire Warden  Campbell" after going twenty miles  had to turn back. Superintendent of  Roads Sutherland, who is in charge of  the work on the Pacific Highway in  the Yale, district, also got stalled on  the road.  "The Pacific Highway is going to be  a wonderful thing to enable our residents to see the scenic beauties of the  province, and will attract thousands  of wealthy nntomobilists here, too,"  said Mr. McKay. "The roadway is being cut through a hundred-mile stretch  of the most wonderful scenery imaginable. It is twenty-four feet wide all  the way and will start from Chilli-  vvack and run clear through to Hope  and then on to Silver Creek and the  .summit of the Cascades, striking the  old Dewdney and Siniilkaineen trails  to Nicola and the Boundary country.  There are wonderful views of mountain and valley scenery, nearly the  whole way. It will be one of the great  resorts for autoniobilists who want to  see Nature at her grandest."  Superintendent Sutherland and his  staff of 100 men have already got sixteen miles of road in the Yale district  completed, and are following up the  work as fast as the snow disappears in  their- path.' '  Mr. McKay does not anticipate any  danger from floods in the Ohilliwack  district unless the thaw from the  mountains should be delayed, and a  heavy drainage comes down towards  the middle of June when a high tide is  due. The tide from the ocean backs  up the waters of the Fraser River as  far as Somas, and the danger to be  feared is that the high tide should  come at a time when the river is  swollen with the mountain thaws.���������  Vancouver Province.  WHEN WERE THE "DOWNS?"  Correspondent of Labor Commission Appears to Have Hazy-Ideas of the  Nickel Plate's History  DOMINION HOUSE  PROROGUES TO-DAY  . The Gazette has been told by different parties of a report of the sitting of  the Labor Commission in Hedley  which appeared in tlie coast dailies,  the Vernon News and other papers, in  which it was stated that "The Nickel  Plate mine had had its ups and downs  but was at last on a paying basis," or  some such words, which conveyed that  import. We did not see the report  ourselves and consequently can only  go by what we have been told on reliable information as to what had been  written.  Now this appears to have been a  trifle worse than the crime of "damning with .faint pr-ai.se" for it tends to  convey an absolutely different idea  from that which happens to be the  truth in the case. The Nickel Plate  never had any -'ups and downs" except in the imagination of a few individuals who claimed to know but  didn't. Neither is there either sense  or truth in saying that it "is at last on  a paying basis" for there never was an  hour's operation of the mine or- the  mill since the stamps started dropping  in the early part of 1904 that it wasn't  paying and paying big.  The Opposition  Cause Shelving of Parcel Post in Not Agreeing to Forego  Further Obstruction  SENATE KILLS NAVAL BILL  THE MORAL LOSS  Canadian Senate for Petty Party Revenge  Struck a Treacherous Blow at the  Cause of Empire  With the date of prorogation set the  Postmaster-General had the Parcel  Post Bill ready for introduction and  was prepared-to bring it forward to be  put through if the House was agreeable to receive it. In a measure of  that kind it is never expected that all  the working details of the system  which it is meant to inaugurate will be  specified in the bill which has to be  enacted to give it the sanction of  parliament, but nevertheless when the  intentions of the opposition concerning the measure were asked, it was demanded by Leniieux, to whom has  been assigned the task of kicker-in-  chief against all legislation that may  be brought forward on postal matters,  that he would require all the minutest  details of the working to be gone into  during the discussion of the measure  before the House. In view of this attitude on the part of the ex-Postmas-  ter-General it * became evident that  there was no use attempting to introduce the measure at this slage of a  session which has already been dragged out through obstruction from No  vember until June, and as a result  Canada will have to wait for another  year for parcel post.  Passing the supplementary estimates  and the passing of sundrv money votes  occupied the closing days of the session.

Horse-shoeing and all  Blacksmith Work  Promptly attended to.  Pipe-fitting done.  There is a distinction and a difference.   The suffragettes of England are  costing that country at the rate of $25,-  000,000 a year by their militant anarchy/and they are losing ground at  every point.   The British people  are  turning against   them,  in   many   instances most bitterly,  and   the   law-  breaking   continues   unabated.     The  torch and   bomb   brigades   are   kept  busy, and they promise to keep it up  as long as the fool rich continue to  contribute funds to the militants.    At  the same time the suffragists of the  United States are  confining their actions to carrying on a strong, persistent  educational campaign. They talk reason and act reasonably.     They do not  kill  their cause   through   their  zeal.  They do not antagonize the   powers  that be; they work for and with them.  As a result, they have already gained  tlie franchise in many of the states,  and  now the national government is  introducing a bill at  Washington extending the franchise to the women of  every state in the Union.  The suffragettes of England have  demonstrated by their own actions  that they are not fit subjects to be  given the franchise. A law breaker,  one taking up the torch against the  property and safety of the public, is  not fit to he entitled to vote. A bomb  thrower in petticoats is no less a  criminal thin one behind the mask.  They are destroyers of property, and  as such are entitled to no more consideration than any other law breaker.  The Vancouver News-Advertiser in  discussing the attitude of the Can.i-  diari Senate towards the Naval-Bill  says: ;  "When Mr. Borden brought down  the measure it was received in Great  Britain with keen satisfaction. Liberal ministers like Mr. Asquith and-Mr:  Churchill said that the proposition  was not only welcome for the material  help it gave but as a demonstration to  Europe that Britain had in her first  line of defence the whole of the overseas dominions. This notice of1 the  powers was in the eyes of the British  Government an immense moral. ad-  advantage. The art committed.by the  Senate, sweeps this away at a stroke  and the isolation of Great Britain will  be the boast of her European competitors. . '*���������     " ���������' T  "The result of the Senate action is  that nothing can be done this year in  Canada for .Imperial or Canadian naval defence. Mr. Borden's measure is  blocked for the session. There is no  other measure before Parliament or  the country. Everything waits. Mr.  Churchill will probably add three ships  to his programme, asking the British  taxpayer to pay for -them. We in this  country will for the time escape from  our obligation and will cheerfully go  on accepting protection at the cost of  poorer people in the.British Islands.

Ottawa., May 30th���������By a vote of 51  to 27 . the Canadian senate last night  declared that the naval bill should be  referred to the Canadian people. There  was one defection from the Liberal'  ranks and one from the Conservatives.  Senator Ellis of St. John voted against  the Ross amendment I'm- reference to  the people, while Senator Montplaisir  of Quebec voted with the Liberals.  The vote came following speeches by  Senator Danduiand, one of the leading Liberals; Sir Mackenzie Bowell,  who, despite his 91 years, spoky tor  more than an hour and a. half in defence of the bill, and a brief speech by  Hon. John Costig.-in. A great crowd  was in the galleries to witness the  final proceedings. A groat many members of the House of Commons were  among them. There was no demonstration of any kind and the vote was  taken in absolute silence.  PASSES  HANK ACT  The senate today completed the consideration of the Bank act. A number  of amendments proposed by the Department of Finance were adopted.  They are all of a technical character-  arid do not. effect the principle .contained in tin; bill. An amendment  which was adopted provides that  banks "may" establish stock transfer  ���������agencies in each province. As the bill  came to the senate this clause declared  that banks 'Shall" establish such  agencies. The amendments were approved and the bill 1 end a, third time.  The senate adjourned until Monday  aftcrnoon.  CANADA A GOOD CUSTOMER  . J.   Hill Tells   People   of   the   United  States Where Their Best Friends Are  Washington, May*'31.���������"Wall street  hasn't a friend west of Buffalo"  James J. Hill, last of the great railway kings of America, remarked  the other day.  "Wall street is merely a counter-  over- which the people of the conntry  are supposed to do their trading. The  gentlemen behind the counter- are dependent upon customers, but if those  customers decline to come up to the  counter then things go hard with  Wall street. It can not live very well  on itself.  "We fail to give due attention to  Canada," continued Mr. Hill. Canada is our second largest trade customer. Our business with it is nearly  twice as much as our trade with all  the countries south of the Rio Grande  clear- to Cape Horn.  "Our relations with one single country to the north are of more value to us  than of all the countries of Central and  South America, including even Cuba.

Foster at Adelaide Says He  Believes in It But We Must Be  Careful or It Will Be Worse  Than Absolutism '"  Skeleton in Eagle's Nest  A party of hunters have captured two  royal eagles, with their young, on the  Alps near the Ledro Valley. In the  eagles' nest were found the bones of a  child, as well as the remains of 200  ducks. 40 hares, a chamois, a fox and  innumerable birds.  Sydney, New South Wales, May 27-  The Dominions Trade Coin missions  were entertained at- Adelaide today Indie Commonwealth Club.  Hon. George E. Foster Canadian  Minister of Trade and Commerce, In',  addressing the assembly, said that he  believed in democracy, but feared that  if we were hot careful we would find  ourselves in the grasp of tyranny  worse than any monarchy of the   past.  Capital and men were what Australia needed and he wanted to see the  senseless battle between capital and labor ended here and elsewhere, and each  realise that they were necessary to  each other. The British Empire had  the possibility of being greater than  ever before, and was now the greatest  the world had ever seen.  All had a hand in its building  and  should do their best.  BRITISH NATURALIZATION  GOLF BALL EXPLODES  This   Innocent Looking Toy Not So In-  necent As It Looks  Alfred Austin, British poet laureate,  died at his home in England,  Sunday.  Kansas City, Mo., May 30.���������As a  result of whittling a golf ball until  it exploded, throwing its acid contents  into his face. Jack Heflin, 13 year-sold,  today lost the sight of his left eye and  physicians say he probably will  become totally blind.

The expedition is well provisioned and equipped and manned by  men who are the best available in  their several lines for scientific research.  Is a child born in Canada of German  parents a British subject, or must he be  naturalized before he is a British  subject**  The above query was recently submitted to the editor of one of Canada's  influential papers and elicited the  following reply:  By the rules of the British law any  child, whatever the nationality of its  parents, if born within the British  Dominions, is. with two exceptions, a-  natural born British subject, even  though the parents may be merely  visiting the British Dominions, or even  if the child is born of foreign parents  on board a British ship on the high  seas. Exception to this rule, however,  is made if the child (his father being  an alien enemy) is born in a part of  the British Dominions which at the  time of the child's birth is in hostile  occupation; and, secondly, if the father of the child is at the time of the  child's birth an ambassador or other-  diplomatic agent accredited to the  Crown by the sovereign of a foreign  state.

There is a rate vv.-u on at present  between shipping companies coin pet ing.  for the northern trade by steamship.  Some of the rates have been slashed;  fifty per cent.  The people of Ontario who know Sir  George   Ross best,   and who  after  repeated trials given him to refoim, had  to turn him adrift as hopeless, will not  be  surprised at his latest hei-eulanean  efforts to "make the worse appear the  better  reason."     There  was   no  man  who pretended greater regret at political crookedness   than he, and   no man  who saw to it  better that  the crooks  yrho  served   his political  ends by the  .'��������� choicest  bits of  political   crookedness  were  duly  rewarded  with  fat berths  for the  services rendered   to hirn  and  his party.     He is  given credit for his  opposition   to reciprocity and he won  great  glory as an  orator  by flowery  flights  of  lip  loyalty clothed  in  the  garb  of ardent  imperialism,   but   all  that  an   honest  intelligent Canadian  needs is to read his speech in the Senate  on the  naval bill and  compare it  with   the   facts  of   Canada's  political  history   in   the  past  thirty or forty  years to  see the utter  hollovvness and  sham of the man.  His anti-reciprocity  views   were expressed  a few  days before  agreement  was  entered   into by  the Canadian   ministers,  Fielding and  Patterson   and 'when he  had   not the  remotest  idea  that   anything   would  come of the negotiations,   but after be.  realized that they had agreed  to reciprocity and that  his party had been  committed   to it by these men and by  Laurier,   there was, as the Scotchman  says,   "never   another   cheep   out   of  him."   He  simply did  as   Blake   had  done exactly twenty years before him,  with   this  difference, that  Blake  was  not committed to opposition by an im-  garded  speech as  Ross was,  and it is  safe to  assume that   had he not made  that speech   against reciprocity in advance he   would have been   found supporting it in 1911 as the. other Liberal  war-horses  were  doing.    And   this is  the man   who will dare to accuse Borden of separatist tendencies   when he  knows what Sir Wilfrid Laurier's record and his own has been, for both of  them  supported unrestricted   reciprocity   in 189!   when   Blake  would have  om&  7?te.

The underwear made by a firm whose  name is as familiar to you as your own,  is worth more to you than underwear  nameless or labelled by a maker of  whom you have never heard.  Tea sealed in a packet bearing the  name of a reputable firm is to be preferred to tea of which the packer is not  sufficiently proud to advertise its  quality.  / That in which much money has been  invested to make or keep it good, is  worth more than that on which nothing  or but little has been spent.  Peace of mind is worth something,  just as quality is.   Buy peace of mind.  When you buy anything worth while  buying, buy that of which you know���������  from advertisements, or from other  dependable acquaintance. Buy the  article with the "money back" guarantee���������with the pledge of a known  name behind it.

Bradshaw of Fifteen Mile was  in town last week for the first time  since early winter. He was confined  .to the house the greater part of the  time with sciatica but is now very  much better.  From the golf links in the evenings  ' may be seen the camp fires of Clifton  which is the name of the new camp of  diamond drillers who have, taken up  their quarters at the upper end of  Bradshaw gulgh.' ,  There is something decidedly punk  about the postal facilities between the  Okanagan and the Similkameen. when  the Vernon News of Thursday arrives  by the same mail as the Vancouver  News-Advertiser of Sunday.  Following  tho matches   in the  Golf  Club   between the forces of the President and Vice-president there lias been  anew  line-up captained   by the secretary and  the  treasurer.     So  far the  wins  have,  nearly all  been   with  the  treasurer's  side.     Tlie  most   interest  displayed   in   any  of  tlie   matches in  til is series   was in the ease  of that between Mrs. Botberhani and Miss Jackson   who   were also  opponents  in the  last series.    This time the match went  in favor of  Mrs. liotherham who won  out by one up at the last hole.    In the  former contest   between   them   Miss  Jackson was the  winner 3 up and 2 to  play.     The   play  of both  on  this last  occasion   was   decidedly  behind  their  usual play.      Some of the  games have  not  yet been   played and   others have  only been   partially played off.    They  will lie  given later  on when   all   have  finished out.  Great changes arc taking place at  the Nickel Plate of which we expected  to make reference this week but will  do so later. A Gazette-representative  was up'nii Sunday and was astounded  at changes which have taken place  since we were there last summer. Tlie  property has certainly become a hummer.  In the re-arrangeinentof stations at  the Methodist Conference recently  held in Vancouver Rev. E. A. Mc-  Ken/.ie was again appointed to Keremeos and Hedley and Rev. T. A. Osborne was appointed to White. Rock,'  a bathing place down at the. coast.  His successor at Princeton will be the  Rev. Mr. Chadwell.  AV. ,T. AVilson of Vancouver made a  business trip to Ooahnont on Thursday last and got back to Hedley on  Saturday to spend the week end before returning to Vancouver by way  of the Boundary. On Sunday,he made  the trip up to the mine and had the  opportunity of seeing some of the  leading points of attraction which  Hedley has to offer- to visitors.  Princeton is going to have a big-  celebration on Dominion Day and the  committees which have the affair in  band are planning to make it the biggest event ot the kind ever held in the  valley. Horse races,' baseball and lacrosse matches, athletic sports, lock-  drilling, bucking contest and other  features will furnish amusement for  those who attend. There will be two  days of the sports on July 1st and 2nd  and a grand ball on the evening of the  first.  The moving pictures on Saturday  night in Fraternity Hall brought out  a good house and the pictures were  very good. There was a clearness and  steadiness not often seen in the movies  and-the subjects were better conceived  on the part of those who got them up,  for they were able to convey the thrill  without making them morbid. These  entertainments are appreciated and  will fit in nicely in the list of amusements. Some of the scenic pictures  on Saturday's bill of fare weie educative and were well calculated to supply to those who saw them many of  the advantage? of travel.  A  man  named   SuLler,   an   elderly  Swede  who  has.made   his home with  John Jackson   for some time and been  employed up on Uie  ranch, was found  dead in-the cabin   on Friday .morning  last by Charles Nelson who had called  to see  him.     Deceased  was. down   in  Hedley  on Tuesday  evening and was  also seen   by John Cos-grove   on   Wednesday evening.     When found it was  thought  he   had   been   dead  about 2-1  hours.     There   was   a   wound   on   his  chin  and the   back of his   hand which  he may  have got  in falling   in a faint  and his  shoes and socks   wen; off.    In  the absence of Dr. McEwen constable  Spronle communicated by phone with  Dr. McCaffery,   coroner,   at Princeton,  and   explained  t-h-a   circumstances   as  they appeared.    These did not seem to  require an inquest and order for burial  was issued.     A note was found in the  house afterwards which had evi-lently  been  written   by him   but it  was   un-*  decipherable   and   nothing   could   be  made out of it- except the. name of Air.  Jackson's   brother   (ins.     The   burial  took place ou .Saturday.  "WATER NOTICE  Prank Cirbonncau, section man for  the G.

Don't worry it will be  n little warmer yet.  On account of the adjournment of  the trial of Rex vs. McCauley at Vernon R. L. Caws ton, H. Tweddle and  D. J. .-Innis were enabled to return  home for a few days returning again  Tuesday evening the third.  A number" of Keremeos ladies very  kindly invited a number of their  friends to have an open air supper-  with them in the park last Friday the  30th. This was taken by many who  thoroughly enjoyed the feast.  There is still a dog on the Heclley  l-o.-id which is of great annoyance to  the travelling public. Why this thing  inust go on hour after hour and week  after week with no effort on the part  of the owners to stop this nuisance is  beyond our comprehension.  Fred Getzey, the well known conductor on the V. V. <fc E. had to lay off on  account of sickness some two weeks  ago. We are sorry to say he has not  been doing as well as expected and  had to be removed to the Spokane  hospital last Saturday suffering froiii  shingles.  It would be of great advantage to  themselves if a number of young men  would get together and clean up  around the park, putting up a couple  of swings for the voting folks and  straightening things out, so that it  would help the ladies to have things  more cheery and bright at such events  they hope to give throughout the  summer months.  Maurice Daly arrived back from  Spokane Thursday 2!Jth looking hale  and hearty after a couple of terms at  the Gorizaga College. He left the  College the 1st of May and instead of  coming home at that time he decided  to stay a few weeks with friends with  whom he says he put in one of tlie  best times of his life. We are glad to  have Maurice back with us aiid especially on account of the great help he  will be to the baseball and lacrosse  clubs.  The Directors of the Fruit Growers'  Association got together Saturday  evening last to discuss ways and means  of handling this summer's crop. It  was recommended that the Association build or rent a building in which  all fruit could be packed collectively  that is to say that the Association  would have an experienced packer and  grader in charge while the growers  would bring all their produce to this  central building where it would be  carefully examined and shipped in  their name.
