The purchasers who have taken the  bond1 that is virtually lecognised as  equivalent to  purchase'outright are  ������he Hedley>GoIdL Mining Co., owners  of the far-famedj-Nickei Plate'group of,  mines in this "camp that has aheady  prodrrced about fouiMirillion dolhus in  ^-old and the"sellers are L. W. Shatford,  F. H. French,* T.'D. Pickand, L'.  G. MacHaffle and "H; A., Turner, the  negotiations being^carried on by F.<H.  Fxench on behalf of the sellers amdjby  G^ P.' Jones for the purchasers.  :  The property was. originally owned'  by Geo. Oahill, who mortgaged the  claims about seven -years ago to Mrs.  Dora'n' jindin default of payment fol  the mortgagee who did not want the  chums and only wanted the  cash due  ���������* >j  iu interest and principal, the cash to  satisfy the mortgagee was put up by  a local syndicate got up by I. L. Dear-  dotf. The members of it weie Messrs.  Lc W.v Shatford, F.'H. French, JL.. G.  Machaffie and Deardorf and they in'  Xuro-.ga,ye ajfif thjnterest-in 'the gioup  back to Cahill. i* Besides advancing  tlie amount necessary to satisfy the  wortgage .they paid for the remaining  assessments necessary to crown-gjrant,  iind also .the cost of ci own-gran ting.  The Deardoif interest was after  wards sold .to T. D. Pickard and H. A.  Turner and when negotiations for sale  were af teirw.nds opened with the Hedley Gold Mining Co. and with others  it was understood that time would  have to be given for proving value  before cash would be paid but Cahill  not being willing to consider any arrangement that did not include an  initial cash payment before a bond  was given offered hit.' interest to F. PL  French for $5000 which requiied an  immediate cash payment and another  payment in thirty days. His offer  was accepted by French on behalf of  himself and sonic of his associates.  These are the transactions in detail  which we give thus fully because some  mistaken ideas appear to have got  abroad concerning what has taken  place.  Nobody knows much of the value of  the property except the purchasers  who doubtless have ���������-. evidence from  their own underground workings although it-was'ti comparatively easy  mutter to arrive at the conclusion that  their situation meant- much. This was  apparent as soon as work was resumed in No. 4 tunnel of the Nickel Plate  and ore extraction tmd development  have gone on so extensively since  then.  ' So far as the purchasers tire concerned it is simply another snap they have  gathered in and it hasn't cost them a  bean, for the old Nickel Plate has paid  for it and far over that, as will be seen  from the Company's own'statement of  the amount of undivided profits that  have accumulated in addition to the  handsome dividends they have been  distributing.  What it .means for the camp is simply this. It has most effectively exploded the old theory thtit the Hedley  Gold Mining Co. with their* twenty  odd claims had till that wtis of value in  the camp. That idea was promulgated by manager after* manager until  the public had commenced to believe  it even without the verbal assurance  or fiat of F-.Ai -Ross who said: "The  Nickel Plate������re body don't go iiowhar*;.  it's like that, (shaping his little jaundiced ochre-colored lunch-hooks in the  form of a squp-bow-1 by way of illns-  Rumored Outlines of/Naval  Policy All  , Mere Guesses  DRAWING THE LONG BOW  LAURIERS LITTLE ERRORS  , Ottawa, May 20.���������A prompt denial  was given, today_by^Premier Borden  to a widely-eiiculated story purporting to outline.the������ Urjval policy of the  government."

The aim and  object'of the rush act is unknown, but  it is a small peg to hang a hope on  tlmt the rush trip was for the purpose of cinching the privilege of put  ting rn a side track tit the Pier-re allotment, and that the sudden appearance and disappearance of the major  will be followed by rush work ou the  branch.

As there  had been a few mild suggestions during the trip of the return of his old  trouble with hay fever he will doubtless find it prudent to stay at the  coast for a few months before venturing in again. Fortunately he bad made  good use of the time since the House  prorogued to get over all of the district and get over parts of it several  times he is conversant with the requirements and can afford to leave it  during the danger* period.  The paper manufacturers have notified wholesale paper men that owing  to increased cost of mater ial and labor  they have been forced to increase the  price of their output. The wholesale  dealers have in turn notified the printers tind publishers that former piice  lists tire no longer in force and ti higher rate is charged after May 22nd. As  yet we have not heard of any printer*  or country publisher who has had the  courage to notify his subscribers thtit  the subscription price of the paper is  to be increased. Oh no, he must take  his medicine and furnish the goods at  the same old price and expect his reward In the hereafter.  The record round of the Hedlej-  links made by Hincks in the summer  of 1911 when he made the round in 42,  thus tying bogey for the round, was ���������  beaten last week by Rolls who reduced  it to 41 in a match played with R. "W.  James which' he won 3 up and 1 to  play.     The score was put together as  follows: 2, 4, 5, 6, 4, 5, 6, 4. 5,  which  shows the play to have been most x*e-  markable for its steadiness from start  to finish^    To those conversant with  the Hedley course and the bogey attached to each hole this score is most  interesting for it shows that just a,  little additional luck, or good luck, or  both of them, in certain  holes thtit he  has often made in less than on this occasion, would have enabled him to reduce the total by either 3 or 4 strokes.  Theo" taken for the ������������������Corkscrew", the  ���������i for   "Pons   Asinorum" and  6  for  "Needle's Eye" are all of them over  bogey.     But' the 6 for ������������������Corkscrew"  would almost seem to be a just judgment meted out to him by Fate in  punishment  for   the  sin  of  cutting  down    those   trees���������a   transgression  which some of the members find it  hdird to forgive.

The  contrast he drew  - between the roads of British Columbia and those in some states on his  side of the International boundary  line as expressed in the interview  which appeared in Inst week's Gazette,  -.____ wtis very creditable to the people and.  government of this province. Mr.  Hill sard that over on his side they  ���������talk good roads but didn't seem   to  - 'build them, and he spoke of wasted  funds thtit had been set apart for road-  building that never* reached the roads.  This reminds us pf a jocular little exaggeration by the late Frank Richter  in talking on the same subject of the  use arid misuse of money in road-  building. The road money over in  Washington he stud was thrown  through a ladder and what >tuck to  the rungs was put. on the roads and  - what went through found its way into  the pockets of those who handle it.  Now.to our mind the whole cause of  the difference is in the system employed in-each .'case. In the U. S. the people  elect their* road bosses but with us the  government must build  the roads and  the government is held responsible tor  the manner in which the work is done  and the value rendered for the money  expended.     It takes popularity to get  elected  and the popular man is very  rarely  the bust road builder.    In fact  when  he does his whole duty by the  people whose money he has been entrusted to expend he is morally sure  to have earned the ill-will and opposition of many on  whose votes   he was  dependent to get him his position. 'On  the  other hand a Minister* of Public  Works  who is a member of the government is  held   responsible   by   his  leader* for results.     That these results  be forthcoming it becomes necessary  for him  to have competent engineers  and have competent district supervisors.   To obtain these latter he finds it  desirable to work through the repre-  presentative of the riding whom he  asks to recommend a suitable man for  the position tmd thus the representative becomes jointly responsible with  the Minister for- his share in  the results produced.  Whether it be a correct system or  not is for others to argue but here at  all events it is found to work out and  produce results and these results have  been so. marked as  to call forth testi  monials from practical men like the  ex president of the Great Northern  whose opinions carry so much weight.  Tn oar own riding of Similkameen we  have only, to 'coinp.ue the roads ot today with those of eight or- nine years  ago, and it was doubtless some of his  experience on the roads of the Sirnil-  kanieen district which Mr. Hill had in  mind, when he talked to the reporter  on the coast. The Romans of old were  great road builders, whether it was on  the Appian Way in Rome itself or  their colonization roads in Britain or  Gaul and to-day they live in our memories by the roads they built. "Si  iiiontiiiieiituni iiKiuiris ciicumspice" is  the proud epitaph which an admiring  country placed on the tomb of Christopher Wren.

Man, horses, wagon and harness are  little the worse for the accident.  Great prospects for a  bum per crop  of every   kind ol" fruit and  vegetable.
