A Lame and Entirely  New Stock of General   Merchandise  Just Opened.  Prices  Seasonable.  After the meeting in Hedley on Saturday night, the outcome, of Tuesday's  struggle in the Railway Committee  was anxiemsly awaited.  Late in the afternoon a message came  from Duncan Ross, which, although  less decisive in its character than most  of the people were led to expect, was  nevertheless reassuring. ��������� The message  was as follows:  " Ottawa, June 20th.  Good progress  to-day.      important  clause passed.    Up again Thursday.'  *��������� Duncan Ross."  There is nothing to indicate, what  particular clause is referred, to as having been passed, but it is thought that  it has reference to expropriation rights  under the. charter.  The fight on the 10th inst. was not  before the Railway Committee but the  sub-committee to whom the first clause  was refer* ed.  Hon. Mr. Fitzp.atsick stated that the  clause, as it appears in the printed bill  accomplishes the object the promoters  have in view in clearing up any- possible doubt as to the validity of the company's existing charter rights. Whether the bill is wise legislation for Parliament to pass is quite another matter.  Mr. Fitzpatrick has already stated  that he will oppose, the passage of the  legislation, as he opposed the Kettle  River charter in days gone by.  The Colonist's Ottawa correspondent  says: "/The biggest fight in many  years is on over the Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern bill. It is a regular  battle between Jim Hill and the Canadian Pacific for first possession of the  West Kootenay country. Duncan  Ross, Macpherson and Galliher have  practically made this a party question  and have canvassed ministerialists  from one end of the Dominion to the  other. When the motion to refer the  bill back to the sub-committee was  made, the oniy two Liberals who voted  for the reference back were Mr. Fitzpatrick and another. It is said there  was a lively meeting between the  minister of justice and his British Columbia friends later in the day."  Meeting  Important    Public  to Back up V.

C  Among the local properties to attract  the attention of investors is the Fairy  Queen group of eight claims reeently  bonded to J. \V. Collis of Victoria by  the owners, F. M. Elkins, W. E.  Hodges, Gladden Bros. D. AVooels and  James N Pa ton.  These claims comprise the Fairy  Queen, Somerset, Castle, Norfolk. Red  top, Stag, Victor and Tower, and the  group is adjacent to the Kingston.  The consideration is $125,000 and an  option of thirty days will be given to  be followed by a working bond of 18  months' duration, which will compel  the holders of the bond to begin work  at or before, the end of thirty days and  prosecute same continuously to completion of the bond.  The terms of payment have not been  given out but it is understood that as  it is a working bond a fair opportunity  will be given the. purchasers to ascertain what they are getting before  much cash is inquired. This is the  right attitude for claim-owhers to take  as it shows that they themselves have  confidence* in  their property,   and  it  On Saturday, in answer to a request  by wire from Duncan Ross, asking for  an expression of opinion from the people of the Siniilkameen'on the V. V.  & E. Bill, a public meeting was called  in Sproule's shop.  Although it was Saturday night  when people are busy with their mail  there was a large turnout of citizens  and the utmost enthusiasm was shown  by those present. All felt the gravity  of the situation and were prepared to  do anything ,in their power to help  on the work.  W. A. McLean was appointed chairman and A. Megraw secretary of the  meeting. The chairman in opening  the meeting spoke of the importance  of doing everything that could be done  to contribute to the end in vioav, and  pointed out the strong effort .that was  being made to defeat it by the C. P. R.  and their friends. He read a telegram  from Duncan Ross, which was as  follows:  , Ottawa, June 16, 1905.  Big fight Tuesday. Want strong telegrams from different parts.'  Duncan Ross.  He asked expression of opinion from  those present and urged the advisability of passing a resolution that would  be pointed and cover the ground.  A resolution was submitted, and after some suggestions as to additions  that should be made the resolution was  changed to embody these.  Mr.- Fraser suggested ��������� pointing out  that no subsidy ��������� was being asked by  the Great Northern, and Mr. Love  thought that the House should know  of the ill effects now experienced  through the delay. It was also pointed  out that, in order to show that all political differences were sunk in this  matter and that the people of Hedley  Avere a unit in favor of the bill, the  mover and seconder of the resolution  should be the presidents of the two  local associations.  The resolution which went to the  meeting was as follows, and passed  without a dissenting voice :  "Moved by J. D. Brass, president of  the Hedley Liberal-Conservative Asso-  siation, seconded by VV. A. McLean,  president of the Hedley Liberal Association, and resolved, that the citizens  of. Hedley in mass meeting assembled,  urge upon the government the absolute  necessity of passing the V.V. it E. bill  now before the House and of granting  to the holders of the charter any other  privileges or concessions which can  hasten the completion of the road, for  Active Railway Construction all That is  Needed to Start the Service.���������Should  Have Mail Contracts.  ��������� J. F. Royer, of the Great Northern's  Overland Flyer, was in town on Friday  last, and in , answer to the Gazette's  inquiry admitted that it was his intention to make the service a daily  very soon and in all probability he may  extend it on further west.  So far the patronage lias been satisfactory to Mr. Rover, and it is equally  true that the service given has been  most satisfactory to the'public.  In this way Mr. Royer has left no  excuse why he should not be given a  mail contract. He intends to make an  offer to the Department to carry the  mails daily from Phoenix or Greenwood  to Hedley. and in thi.s he will be backed up by the entire district traversed  by that route.  The. actual time now taken between  Spokane and Hedley is only 34 hours >  and 15 minutes. This enables the  Spokesman Review to be delivered in  Hedley the day after publication, delivered, by express.  DOMINION DAY SHOOT.

Strawberries and cream,  ice cream and lemonade will be served  bv the ladies.  will do much for the  work.  town  in  getting  In the absence of better mail facilities the business people will be obliged  to express their business correspondence by the Great Northern stage.  Royer's express charge from Hedley  to Phejenix is 0 cents per lb.  the following reasons:  (1) Because of intolerable hardships  borne from lack of transportation.  (2) Because we know that instead of  diverting Canadian trade to American  centres, it is the one thing necessary  to conserve that trade to British Columbia by securing, as it will, connection, with Boundary and coast cities.  (3) Because long years of waiting on i  the C. P. R., and recent utterances of  William Whyte leave no hope of relief  from any source but the Great Northern, which is ready to build without  subsidy or land grant.  (4) Present delay is paralyzing business in the district. Contractors are  on hand but no construction will begin  until bill passes. The utmost despatch  is essential."  The chairman, secretary and John  Love were appointed a committee to  attend to the matter of having resolution transmitted by wire, and for this  purpose the meeting subscribed twenty  dollars in less than a quarter of as  many minutes.'  An important feature of the above  resolution was the clause which asks  not only that the bill   be  passed  but  of the V.V. & E. charter. This shows  that the people of the Similkameen do  not stand for any of the restrictive  legislation embodied in McPhcrson's  amendment to the bill. They want the  Great Northern with the Great Northern's low gradients for therein lies then-  hope of low freights in the future.  Mr. Brass introduced the matter of  the ('. P. H.'s fyliug and holding first  choice of route down the valley.  Moved by \V. A. McLean, seconded by.  J. D. Brass, that whereassevcial years  ago the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.  fyled route plans for a. railway through  the Similkameen valley, with no apparent intention of building thereon,  but of obstructing the operation of all  rival lines by the claim of prior choice  of route thus established, and whereas,  the existence of that claim of priority  is at present seriously hampering the  work of the Great Northern engineers  and compelling them, in their effort to  avoid all possible friction with the  C.P.R. by crossing of lines, to locate  the line of the Great Northern' in a  manner that will cause serious inconvenience to business interests in this  valley.  Be it therefore' resolved that this  meeting draAV the attention e>f the Department e>f Raihvays an el Canals and  through them also the Railway Commission to thi.s matter and ask that  the Canadian Pae'ific Railway, be re>-  eiuiird forthwith,   either to  withdraw  that "any other privileges or conccs-i said plans e>r begin work at once env  sums Avhich can hasten-the eeimpletion I the route' thus fyled upon and pi-osecute  e*f the road" be extended to the heikh'i-s j the; work contimumsly to e-onipletiem.  8i THE HEDLEY GAZI-7JTU.
