TO BE RUSHED  New Section  Let  From   Bull Creek to  Summit Wil Be Covered With  Camps in Six Weeks  The Kettle Valley lines have awarded to the L. M. Rice Co. of Vancouver,  the contract for the construction of 40  miles of main line from Bull creek to  Summit, near the headwaters of the  west fork of the Kettle river. The  same firm has just completed grading  the section from Midway to Bul.1 creek  and 20 miles of track has also been  laid. The distance from Summit to  to Penticton is only 3o miles. A member of Rice & Co. has stilted that work  on the new contract will be rushed  without delay. The' next six- weeks  will be devoted to establishing con-,  struction camps and shipping in grading outfits. The section connecting  with' the C. Pl'R. at-Merritt in the  Nicola' valley and extending south to  the headwaters of the Coldwater river,  on Hope summit, a distance of <10  miles is under construction. The track  has been laid for over 20 miles.

Canadian  opens  the July number of  Rod nnd Gun.in Canada, published by  W. J. Taylor Ltd., Woodstock, Out.  In   this story, JVIr.- R.-.1 .-Taylor,.- who  was   engaged   on  the Hydro-graphic.  Survey, relates interesting" incidents  of the eight months' stay of the party,  engaged.in survey work in the neighborhood of Hudson's Bay and tells of  an attack  upon  the  camp  of Polar  bqars.   He gives particulars of the fine,  trapping in which the party engaged  and the excellent results of this portion of their work.     The   strenuous  outward journey from Fort Nelson to  Winnipeg supplies excellent reading.  There  is much  variety in the other  stories,  both  fishermen  and hunters  receiving due   attention   and   stories  and experiences from  the far east as  well as from the far west are included.  They hmiton horse-back in British Columbia shoeing.the-difference in the  conditions between those prevailing in  that Province and  those existing in  Eastern  and Centr.*;l.Canada.

HOMEWARD BOUND  Premier McBride Left Britain on 2ist.  Attorney-General Comes Later  Hon. Premier and Mrs. McBride and  Mr. 'Lawrence McRae will sail for  home from Liverpool on the 21st inst.  Hon./Mr. Bowser will remain in London rintil August 5th, in order to personally appear,in support ,of the,province in several pending appeals to the  Privy Council, notably with respect  to-water, jurisdiction in the Dominion  railway belt and possibly the disputed  mutter of the fisheries jurisdiction.  Jay P. Graves interviewed in Spokane concerning the Granby Company's new purchase of the Hidden  Creek Mines said:  "Prior to the New York Meeting of  directors, at which it was decided to  take up our bond on the Hidden Creek  six engineers examined the property  for ns. Their* reports showed from 6,-  000,000 to 12,000,000 tons of ore in sight.  This proved it to be at least as.biga  property as our Phoenix mines and  put the matter of handling its product at our Grand Forks plant entirely out of the question.  "Most of our development work to  date has been" by means of diamond  drills. ' The best results we obtained'  came from diamond drill No. 19 which  showed an ore body 300 feet wide, containing a paystreak 100' feet wide,  which averaged more than 0 per cent  in copper. .  "With a view to determining where  the smelter' shall lie located, whether  at the mine, Ptincc Rupert or some  other point on the coast, our consulting engineer*. W. Y. Williams, now  is in Northern British Columbia investigating the available ore supply from  other mines in that! section-and  Alaska. .   *  "'The other problems .entering into  the.determination of the'location and  capacity! of the smelter-are, being investigated by our assistant'manager,  Mr. Frank'- M. Sylvester. _*' Should the  site at"GooseBav be-finally chosen we  have there plenty of land, timber and  .water power. Hithei to, we hilye paid  little attention to the custom smelting  business, but hereafter- we intend to  go extensively into that business, both  at Grand Foaks and our new smelter,  wherever it may be located".  '-' ������������������  "The surprising rest-i'ltis. obtained  from our development <work to date is  responsible for the purchase of the  Rodger*^ {nterest, which we. did hot-at  first take under bond: i Now, however^  the erit'ire property ''l^longs to' the  Granby. company. .._Mr. 0.;B. Smith',  hitherto superinten'deht'ofburiPhoenix  mine, has been appointed .superintendent of;the Hidden Creek thine'? with  an assistant at each mine.  BY RAIL TO HUDSON BAY  Report Issued  Regarding Timber Along  Route  Estimation of the timber along the  proposed route of the Hudson Bay  Railway was tlie main object of a  party sent out during the summer of  1910 by the Forestry Branch of the De-  partmenLof Inteiior. The report of the  head of the party (Mr. J. R'. Dickson,  B.'S. A., B. S. P., Asm. Inspector of  Forest Reserves) has just been published.  At intervals of three to six miles  along the route lines were run by compass at right angles to the route of  travel. Each forester- worked alone  and covered, on the average, four to  six miles per day.  ESTIMATE OF THE TIMI5EK  Tlie total number of ties available  in the district traversed is estimated  at 3fl0"00fJ; these, at 3,000'to the mile,  would be sufficient for about 120 miles  of road. The saw-timber totals about  nine and st half million feet, board  measure. Dead tamarack and the  largest of the close-grained black  spruce could be used for pile timber.  There is an immense supply of fuel-  wood and pulpwood, biit a good deal  of the young timber is too small, as  yet even for pulpwood.  TIMBER   KILLED HY FIRE AM) INSECTS  1 The chief reason for- the comparative small supply or timber- in the  district is the fact that fires have so  often run over it. The greatest of these  jriccurred, respectively, eighty and  forty -years ago and few parts of the  region explored escaped these.  " The/" attacks of insects have also  caused much loss of. .timber in" the  l-egion. Bark beetles are the greatest  offenders.  PMftCfc  bivery, Feed & Sale Stables  HEDLEY   B.

AVilliam  Tenipleinan that he will/hot accept  nomination in Comox-Atlin at- the  .next' election, comes somewhat ���������*���������*���������������������������*' a  surgrjse, as it .was felt* thrit,after his  recent] visit to-the riding lie was prepared to cbntest the seat.' I,t mast be  admitted _thatthe riding\has some terrors, ;'altogether apart from those  which pertain to the political side, for  ,a man who has reached Mr. Tenrple-  ninn's age and who has little liking for  a vigorous campaign as he has. There  is a large area to cover* in the district  and the minister might well feelafraid  to face it.  AVith his retirement there is naturally Speculation as to who will receive  the nomination. The name of Duncan  Ross is freely used and there are many  in the Liberal party who are anxious  to see him enter the contest.  On the other* hand. William Sloan  has a number* of supporters who feel  that if he desires to reenter politics he  should have first choice. This they  base on the action he took when Hon.  Mr. Templeruan was defeated and it  became necessary to find a seat for  liini if the portfolio was to remain  witli B. C Mr. Sloan magnanimously  retired and undertook to have the  minister returned.  It is probable that Mr. Sloan may  be the candidate therefore.  ���������   PREVENTION OK. KIKES  ���������The prevention of fire in this district is a problem of the greatest difficulty; Throughout the region there  are practically no inhabitants, and the  area, is of such vast extent that, if a  fire once starts, the chances of stopping it, even with good patrol system,  'would be far from bright. Indians in  jthis region seem much more careful  with fire than the white men.  KATE OK GROWTH  Some attention was paid by the  foresters to the calculation of the rate  of growth of the different trees.  This was found to be slow, chiefly  op account of the cold wet soil which  results from lack of drainage throughout the region.  HOW PAST DO TREES GROW  In one hundred years white spruce  reaches a diameter of eight to twelve  inches, poplar of eight "to ten inches  and black spruce of four to fiye inches.  Jack pine will not average six inches  in diameter.  The author's conclusions in regard  to the  timber are not very optimistic  There is probably enough timber  available to build the rough construction work of the Hudson Bay _ Railway  is as far* as he permits himself to go.  The topography, soil, vegetation and  climate of the country are briefly referred to, also the resources of the  country in regard to agriculture, minerals, fish, game and fur animals.  HEDLEY NOW ON MAP  The Minister of Mines report for 1910  is to hand and the map accompanying  it this time has Hedley marked on it  for which we now give full credit.  One more correction is necessary to  give Hedley tlie credit and pi ominence  that is due  the camp and  that   is to  put it where  it  belongs  which is  in  the Similkameen.  The Lord placed Hedley  in the  Siniilkaineen  Valley but the Piovincial  Mineralogist appears  to  know   more  about it than the Lord does and persists in   having the  returns of output  from this camp credited to the Boundary district and the  report of progress of the camp itself appears urider  thepage heading ���������"Boundary District".  ' Qf course- in one way it doesn't matter so  much now  as it  did before for  nobody  but the  Provincial  Mineralogist  himself seems  to care any  more-  whether  the output of the   camp  is-  concealed or not. '. Under- the reign of  the   choleric   fidgety   Mr.- Ross   the-  classification    and    manipulation    of  figures so as to conceal the output of  this camp in all official reports appeared to' be of more importance than"the  finding of ore or development' of the  mine and hi:  was able to  impress the  Provincial  Mineralogist in   like  man-,  ner. ��������� "The evil that men do lives after  them,  the good  is oft interred  with  their bones," so  it has turned  out to  be with F. *A. Ross for here long after  he is gone and his policy of silly mystery,  and .secrecy,. have   disappeared  from about the  premises aud are all  but forgotten  like" himself,  the Mines  Repoi;t compiled by his  too apt pupil  continues  to''make the Nickel  Plate  mine and its output do the ostrich act  with  its  head (see page K12)   thrust  under a thick layer of "Boondary District" sand   and its   rump  and   tail  feathers (see page K.125) in full  view  except for the light sprinkling of a  similar kind of sand   represented in  the prtge heading symbolical of the  salt with  which  the compiling bird  may have  been  captured in   the first-  place.  But some .may- say   "why    bother  with the matter any further when the  altered!-, .policy   of   the   Hedley   Gold  Mining Co.  enables the. output to be  known as shown  in the report of progress on  page R125?   .

Forty thousand men from the eastern provinces will be needed this year  for- the western harvests. Minister  Rodger's, of the Manitoba cabinet, did  good service by arranging with the  railways to take the men out on the  regular- trams .at the harvest excursion  rates without running all out by the  harvest excursion trains as in former  years..  OPPORTUNITIES IN THE NORTH  The encouraging experience of  prairie towns along the ('. P. It. is inducing many to invest in town lots in  new towns springing up along the  Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern. Some of these new  towns will be railway divisional points  and are well worth investigating.  agents for   the   Grand  are giving the public all  through  Canada   an   opportunity   to  pur-chase lots   in  these  towns   at the  first selling price.  Those who niav want to invest can  examine maps and price lists at the  Gazette office where all the information we have at hand will be furnished.  The selling  Trunk Pacific  That is a question which is engaging the attention of politicians and  others. The activity of ministerialists  in putting candidates in the field, the  diligence of oiler Pugsley in operating  the Public Works lubricator and the  utterances of various ministers in admitting the possibility of a near election and in making the adniisson  throwing the blame upon their opponents, led a good many to expect the  election early this fall. The Globe  says they cannot be held before the  end of October and now Minister  Aylesworth rises to say that one or  two more sessions may yet be held before any Dominion ('lection can take-  place.  GENERAL NEWS  The approach of winter- is making  tlie coal strike take on a. much more  serious aspect. The governments of  the western provinces are asked to do  all in their power to aid in having a  supply of coal for the coming winter  provided for.  F. S. Hussey, superintendent of Provincial Police, died at AMctoria last  week. He had held the office, for  over' twenty years and was a very efficient officer until about, three years  ago when he had a rather serious illness which impaired his powers somewhat.  Out of *2(i0 cows inspected in the  dairies about Nelson 121 were found to  be infected with Bovine tuberculosis  and ordered to be killed. The meat of  marry of the animals adjudged tainted  with the disease was pronounced safe  for* consumption as the cooking would  destroy all the tuberculous germs.  The LeRoi mine at Rossland has:  been sold to the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Co. for a quarter of a  million dollars.

To  make sure.about it he goes  to "the: office of the Agent General and asks for  a copy   of the Mines report  arid starts  to look   up the Similkameen; to   see  about this production  which  permits  such a dividend distribution, and-what  does  he see ?

Ewart was in town  last week - on his way back from  Princeton where he went through the  ordeal of being investisratcd on n  charge of drunkenness. The inquiry  was.held, by W. H. Bullock-Webster  and those who heard the evidence say  that the charge, which it is understood was made by,. Rev, Mr. Kinney  before he left the valley, fell down  utterly. "Whatever faults he , may  have or mistakes lie may make it was  quite a new and surprising circumstance to those who knew constable  Ewart.best to have his name associated with drunkenness, for while not  pretending Lobe a total abstainer he  has never been known to be a drinking man.    >  John  Love,   druggist,  of   Phoenix,  came in on Saturday last on business  and to see his old friends  in Hedley.

Already  he is planning another  tiip which  he expects  to take within  the next sixty "days and while he may  take in part of last years   tour he will  vary  the  route considerably so as to  take in territory he  was unable to see  last time and the route in  next Lime  will be  by way of Edmonton and the  Yellowhead Pass.
