Dolphin, upon which a bond was taken  last fall by Mi*. Stevenson on behalf of  himself and associates.  The property is situated on the east  side of Keremeos creek up the mourn  tain above Manuel Barcello's ranch,  and to reach it a stilt' climb up the  tvail to the workings is necessary.  The property had been held by Mv.  Pitman, of Loomis, from whom a bond  was obtained for something in the  neighborhood of $50,000. Already two  payments have been made and another  is due in August next.  The work of development is being-  done under the direction of Mr. Stevenson, who wits absent on the day on  which the property was visited. At  present some twelve men are at work  on the property. These are working  in tunnels and prospect holes. When  the bond was taken there was a tunnel  about 100 feet long with various open  cuts. This tunnel has since been extended, and several cross-cuts driven  from it, besides other tunnels or adits  have been driven in on the deposit,  and the showing in ore is excellent.  The ore is a copper-gold and is claimed  to be high grade. Copper values of  20 % are frequently obtained, as well  as several dollars in gold. With the  encouragement which has been given  during development it would appear  that the bond will he taken up at  expiry.  The property is most conveniently  situated both for working and for  transportation, and if everything goes  on as favorably as at present and the  bond is taken up, the V. V. & E. will  in all probability run a spur, which  could be done very cheaply,  short tram would deliver tin;  the railway  track.  On Saturday lust the Gazette, in  company with Mysore. MacHaffie and  Irwin of the B. N. A. staff, paid a visit  to the Kingston group, and while prepared to see something good after the  examination made in November last,  the quantity and quality of ore taken  out and shown up in Lhe tunnels, drifts  and open cuts, was somewhat of a surprise, and especially so in view of the  fact that so little had been heard of it  on the streets.  The new workings upon which this  most favorable showing has been made  is on the. War Horse 'mineral claim, one  of the Kingston group. By going up  the'Daly Reduction' Co.'s gravity train  as far as central station, following a  short distance along the Nickel Plate  trail to wards Hedley and then cutting  along the mountain side in a 'northerly  direction, these new workings are  more easily 'reached than by any other  route, no climbing being necessary.  Last fall the work on the War-horse  consisted wholly of a number of open  cuts, in which there was a good copper  showings but during the winter a tun-  well as the desire to thoroughly prospect the ground, is responsible for the  amount of work which  has been done  in open cuts.   The connection between  these later showings on the War-horse  with   those 011   the   Kingston,   upon  which the greater part of the development work had been  clone,  is so obvious that the   value  of  the  entire  Kingston group is increased thereby.  Mi. Wells is. to���������. be ��������� congratulated on  the persistent and intelligent search  which he has made to lay bare tlie secrets of the hill, and that so much has  been done at moderate expense and  without the cost of installing plant is  certainly   very   much   to   his  credit/  Few mines have, during the prospect  stage.been subjected to the methodical  sampling and  checking  to   ascertain  exact values, which has been pursued  in  the development of the  Kingston  group, and when with the arrival of  the railway the time comes for installing a plant,  the owners will have at  their hands most valuable data upon  which to proceed.  The Kingston group is owned by the  Kingston Gold & Copper Mining Co.,  Limited, of which Mr. W. A. Marsh,  of Quebec, is president, and the stock  is mostly owned in,Quebec. The group  consists of the Kingston, Metropolitan,  War Horse and Grand View mineral  claims, and to this was added last win-  MINING DEAL  Geo. Cahill Sells Five Claims  on N. P. Mountain.

"  nel was run in for something oyer 60  feet with crosscuts, and this has served  to show that the ore body is large and  the character improving.   The extent  of the ore is as yet unproven, and neither has the work been sufficient to  decide the real character of the occurrence or determine whether it is a vein  or a large irregular mass;   but one  thing at all events had been shown,  and that is that the splendid ore which  they are breaking out every shift is in  a lime gangue and is apparently the  contact with an andesite dike.    The  present is not sm  opportune time to  hazard half-baked conclusions on insufficient data as to the local geology,  and the manager, Mr. P.M. Wells, has  no theories to advance as to the same,  or if he has, he has not given them out.  In view of the fact, however, that the  Canadian Geological Survey now has  a party at work in Oamp Hedley, who  will spend the summer working out  the structural geology of the camp and  its relation  to the occurrence of ore  bodies,   it is best to defer the question  and   a  ore. on  FAIRVIEW   NOTES.  OLIVER & GLADDEN  -:<>:-  Civil & Mining Engineers  -:<):-  TWINE������ eiirkdL  REAL   ESTAXE  HEDLEY, B.C.  HOTEL PENTICTON  Headquarters for Tourist Travel.  Kates Moderate  A. Bausbs, Prop.       Penticton, B.C.  The weight of fruit on some of tlie  trees in Mr. Dalrymple's orchard is  even now more than the limbs can  carry.  The Okanagan Nursery Co. leased  00 acres of Parkinson's ranch. This  lot slopes to the east and has a. sufficient supply of water. About ten acres  of it will be culivated this year.  Mr. T. J. Smith, of the Diamond  Vale Mining Co., passed through Pair-  view on his way from Oroville. to Penticton. He has by reading and observation a good knowledge of many  lands and he does not hesitate to predict a wonderful development for the.  Boundary, Okanagan and Similkameen in ten years,  Mr. John Burnet who was under the  doctor's care at Pairview for the greater part of last winter, moved to his  ranch at the Steinwinder last month.  He was only in his shack a few hours  when fire, for the third time in a few  years, left him without a house. Mr.  Burnet's ranch is good, but money  and muscle are necessary to put it in  good order, and the purchase money  would secure more comforts for an old  man.  of local geology until it can come in a  regular way with due authority from  competent sources. The ore itself (and  the face, side, roof and floor of the  present drift are all ore) presents a  most attractive appearance, the predominant mineral being chalcopyrito  which is well distributed throughout  the entire mass, and is sufficiently in  evidence everywhere in the ore gangue  to give a good-paying percentage of  copper. Another mineral that is also  much in evidence, and in places more  massive, is mispickcl, a mineral very  highly thought of in this camp from,  its association with Nickel Plate ores.  The face of the drift in winch  miners  ter the Kingston fraction.  The mine buildiugs are on the Kingston claim, in close proximity to the  first development work done, the main  feature of which as .pointed out in  former issues was the -400-foot tunnel.  The hillside on all the property is so  steep that it is difficult to hold the ore  extracted in course of development,  and for the buildings considerable  cribbing had to be done to provide  room for,location. The living quarters for the men are certainly inviting  and especially so when compared with  those so often met with through the  mountains, for in his house-keeping  Mr. Wells is as methodical as he is in  watching the course of development.  Future operations of the company  ���������will depend largely upon local circumstances, and until transportation has  become an accomplished fact and the  power question for the camp has been  solved it is not likely that anything  extensive by way of installing plant  will be undertaken, although development will proceed on such scale as  present circumstances will permit.  For the town of Hedley the progress  of work on the Kingston group has  particular interest, for it is much closer to the town than any other working  property, and readers of the Gazette  will derive particular satisfaction in  knowing that the outlook is so bright  for having another rich workiug mine  at   our   doors.  On Monday a mining deal of considerable importance wnsymade, when  Geo. Cahill transferred'the Windfall,  Morning, Big Horn, Winchester fraction and Czar fraction mineral claims  to F. H. French and I. L. Dearclorff.  These, claims are situate on Nickel  Plate mountain, south of and adjoining  the-properties of the Yale Mining Co.  About four years ago the Sunnysides  was unpractically the same position as  they were, for nothing had been done  on it to show what the property really  contained, and it was gathered in by  M. K. Rodgers like many others for  the Yale Mining Co. for a trifling eon-  RIFLE   MATCH.  The. June monthly shoot of the Hedley Ride Association was pulled off  this week, and if the scores are to be  taken as an indication of the excellence  of the shooting it will be seen that the  marksmen are not progressing very  rapidly towards perfection.  This shoot too had lent to it the additional interest of deciding the ownership of the cup, which had been won  twice by L. W. C. Rolls, and which if  won a third time would be won for  keeps.  At the W0 and -100 yard ranges a  choppy, shifting wind was in evidence  are at present working and which has I that had the effect of distributing  the  target and  side-ration. 0  When building the line of the electric tram a large ore body was located  on which the company began extracting ore from-the grass roots, and have  continued to do so, sending it down to  the Daly Reduction stamp mill in  Hedley, until now there is an excavation that would hold several of the  larger buildings in Hedley, and no  more waste rock in sight than one  would expect to see come out of a -10  foot prospect shaft. These claims now  purchased lie on the trend of this ore  body on Nickel Plate mountain, and if  that ore body extends southward at all  beyond the workings of the Nickel  Plate, Sunnysides and Bulldog, the  Windfall group are bound to have it.  With the early construction of the  railway and the impulse to mining  which its advent is expected to bring,  it is to be hoped that these five claims,  which are in themselves of sufficient  extent to prove attractive to capital,  will be the means of introducing new  blood to exploit the south end of the  camp as are the couple of. dozen or so  likely ones on the north end. It is to  all these properties yet unexplored and  undeveloped that Hedley looks to make  this town one of the liveliest and most  prosperous mining centres in British  Columbia.

Low is   Appointed   Deputy  Minister of Mines.  now been in solid ore for about 15 feet,  was examined before and after the  round of shots had been fired, and the  same uniform character of the ore was  evident.  For a considerable distance up the  hillside from this tunnel, and also on  either side, are open cuts which, when  the blind capping has been pierced,  giye fine showings of copper ore that  are evidently connected with  that in  bullets too evenly over the  playing ducks and drakes with the  scores, and as a result the highest aggregate was 5S, made by Mr. Rolls, out  of a possible 75, or two points less than  an average of inners. It is a year since  the cup has been won on any single  match with less than 60 points, and  high score to date is 08, made by T. D.  Pickard on Christmas Day. The medal was also won by Mr. Rolls on a score  (Ottawa Citizen.)  In accordance with the act passed  last session a stall' was appointed to  the department of mines at Saturday's  cabinet meeting. Mr. A. P. Low, director and deputy head of the geological survey, was appointed deputy  minister of tlie new department. Dr.  Haanel, superintendent of mines, was  appointed director of the mines branch,  and Mr. John Marshall, accountant of  the geological survey was appointed  accountant of the new department.  The position of directoi of the  geological survey branch will not be rilled  at present, Mr.  Low combiuing with  1 the duties of deputy minister the work  of director.  GRADUALLY COMING OUT.  the drifts and tunnels below. In some j of SO for the 300 and -400 yard ranges,  of these open cuts there is found underneath the cherty capping a few  feet of gossan in which copper oxides  and carbonates prevail, the whole contents of decomposed material giving  over 20 % in copper and good values in  gold and silver as well, and beneath  this gossan is the solid ore similar to  that in the face of the drift.  In working with hand steel the rock  is'found to be very hard, which makes  progress difficult, and this feature,  as  Next shoot the medal  will be contested  for on the 200 and 400  yard  ranges.

The ranches were in the Similkameen  district. The negotiations took place  a few days previous to the election.  Since the election, strange to say, the  bottom has dropped out of the deal.  This is regrettable as the prices named  ���������$15,000 and $10,000���������were considered  fairly good values for the ranches."

Thos.  D'Arcy McGee is not only taking shape  but has made such progress that it is  expected   the.   scheme    will   soon   be  brought to a successful  termination.  McGee was a strong figure in Canadian  public life in tlie early days of Confederation, and Canadians would do themselves scant credit should they fail to  do honor to  his memory in a manner  befitting  both  the occasion  and   the  man.    As poet,   patriot and orator, he  shed alike a lustre upon the fair fame,  of a young country,  and  he. gave  his  life  a, sacrifice  to  the  cause of unity  and  patriotism.     When   Canada  has  done justice to the memory of McGee  she has yet another brilliant Irishman  to  whom   honor should be done,  and  that is Nicholas Flood Da vin. Whether  honor is best done in  material such as  marble   or  granite is a question  upon  which all are not agreed, and it would  seem that in the case of these, two men  something farther is needed.     Both of  them in life prepared more; lasting material in the many gems of poetry and  rhetoric   which   they   have    left    us.  Some ol: these  gems  are   preserved in  modest compilations of Canadian verse  appearing   from   time to   time and diluted   in   many  cases  with   the  more  ephemeral work of others:   but. as far  as the writer knows,   no  attempt  has  ever been made to collect and  publish  the best work of either  McGee or   Ibi-  vin.    A volume' devoted to each, which  in addition to short biographies of the  men, would   contain   their   poems and  essays, and some of the more  brilliant  of their  speeches,   should as a literary  venture prove profitable,   and provide  a,   more   lasting   monument   to   their  memories.    But if such be  attempted,  let  the   task   be  entrusted to worthy  hands.  tion, for there are cases where men  have been known to put stakes for a  mineral claim upon a piece of ground  that they i-ould not pre-empt and were  too mean to buy under the. Land Act,  and possessing the dog in the manger  !   i spirit they took this  way of keeping  I  | others from pre-empting. Now in Ontario under their new mining law that  sort of a trick could not be played, for  they employ an inspector to examine,  all  locations  before a record is given.  r  Some change, either in our mineral  act or in investigating the bona fides  of locators of ground, is required in  this province, and it is'a matter that  should engage the attention of the  Minister of Mines and Attorney-General. The introduction of a- clause'in to  the Mineral Act, which would provide  for bringing that sort of thing under  the statute of frauds, and Jay the responsibility of its enforcement upon  the mining recorder 'might have the  salutary effect of checking this sort of  thing. Mining men, instead of taking  alarm at any attempt to change the  law, should welcome a change of this  kind, which would tend to protect  them and protect the public, for it is  the public that suffers, most when the  countrv is held back.

The serious damage done to the  mining industry in British Columbia  through all the ceaseless amending  of the mining laws created so much  distrust towards anything in the. nature of change, that only by resolutely  setting his face against any attempt to  alter or amend, was the leader of the  present government able to re-assure  capitalists tha.t their interests would  be. duly safe-guarded.

Forsyth  Smith, editor of the Vernon News,  who has been making a tour of Southern Okan-igan in the interests of his  paper ..was a caller at the Gazette office.  He felt that he could not go back  home without seeing the Similkameen  as well. He: admits that the Siniilka-  meen''lias been to him a revelation,  and when here he must visit Hedley  the hub of it all. While here the 'editor-had .the. pleasure of taking him for  a ride over the, train up to the Nickel  Plate, and also through the stamp-  mill of the.

For further particulars apply  to  S. L. SMITH  1-1 For Hedley Lumber Co.  November was doing its stunt, possibly "the red-hot" may be waiting for  the V. V. & E. track"  The name of the licensing district  in which Hedley is situated has been  changed . from, the Nicola Licensing  District to that of the Similkameen  Licensing District. The old name, was  altogether unsuitable in that the. town  of Nicola was not itself located in the  district that bore that  name.  Last week before the Similkameen  river had gone down so much, Mr.  Camsell required to examine some  rock formations on the mountains on  Sterling Creek, and also to establish a  point to sight on in connection with  the mapping of the camp, so it became  necessary for him to cross the. river.  J. Fraser Campbell who acted as guide  for him last year accompanied him on  this trip, and they took with them a.  couple of pack-horses in addition to  their saddle-horses. The packs were  taken over in a boat and the horses  were made to swim the river. When  Mr. Camsell has work in hand it takes  more than a. river in flood to stop him,  and Fraser Campbell is another of  those "sons of Martha" who are disposed to deal with a situation as they  find it.  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., returned  to Hedley on Thursday's stage, bringing with him Mrs. Shatford and the  children who had remained in Victoria  when Mr Shatford was called east  suddenly by the illness and death of  his father. When the final attack  came, Mr. Shatford sr. seemed to have  a premonition that it would prove  fatal and expressed the wish to have  all the members of the family summoned. The others, being nearer,  reached their father's bedside before,  he did, but they could not be sure that  at any time he was really fully conscious of anything except that they  were present, and also that L. W. had  not yet arrived; but when he came,  the mind of the sufferer seemed to get  clearer, and for a, brief spell his answers to questions seemed to indicate  that he understood, but shortly afterwards he began to sink rapidly and  and the end soon came.

DIRECT CONNECTIONS AT SPOKANE WITH  EAST AND WESTBOUND OVERLAND TRAINS THE   HEDLEY  GAZETTE,   JUNE   13,   1907.  LOCAL NEWS.  The licence commissioners for the  Similkauieen licensing district will  meet in Princeton on Saturday.  The. three diamond drills are constantly in operation on the properties  of the Yale Mining Co., working day  and night shifts.  There-are rumors to the ell'ecb that  the Great Northern are going to  change their time-table. As yet.no  official notice has been given.  Trap-shooting is interesting a few  devotees in Hedley who are endeavoring in an artificial way to become  wing shots before the grouse season  conies in.  The rejuvenated Board of Trade, are-  endeavoring to improve the appearance of Scott Avenue, and a. decided  movement in that direction may be'  expected in a few days. ���������  Freight for- Hedley has commenced  to come in over the  Great Northern.  There., is at present some  machinery  ,.fnr the Daly Reduction Co. waiting at  Oroville. to.be hauled in.  The. Shhilkanieen river is fast drop-,  ping to something like summer level.  It its said to be several feet lower now  than when the bridge crew at Armstrong's drove most of the. piles in the  river bed.  If some, means could be devised to  store one-half of the water that has  gone down Twenty-mile during the  past month, there would be-more than  abundance to run all the works in  Heiiley during the whole year.  George Gilbert left last week on a  visit to his home in England. The.  .work on the Florence group this  spring, in which he is interested with  Mr. Bradshaw, was attended with encouraging results, and in all probability it will be resumed on his return.  The reason why certain dashes are  to be found in our meteorological report, is ..not as interpreted by some.  No, the editor has not been swearing  at the weather, but the minimum thermometer at the mill is broken, and  hence no minimum registers can be  given nor the mean temperatures calculated.  The. V. V. & E. are likely to pick up  freight business all along their route.  At the Mountain Sheep, a property a  few miles south of Chepaco they expect to ship. Of this the Loomis Prospector says: "In drifting to the south  in the upper workings of the Mountain Sheep during the past week, the.  workmen opened up a. pay shoot nearly three feet wide of solid ore. Assays  show that this ore runs from .$50 to  $100 to the ton in silver. Sacks have  been ordered, the ore will be sorted  and shipments commence as soon as  the railroad will handle freight."  There is little to give this week in  the line of railway progress. The  bridge builders have not yet resumed  operations at Armstrongs, although  the river is considerably lower than  when they drove, the piles in the riverbed before, the period of high water.  The work trains are still busy on the  south end idling in wash-outs. The  pile-driver is on this side of the riyer,  but possibly the available supply of  pile timber may be on the far side and  until the filling in has been done, it  may not be convenient to get any  bridge material forward.  Mr. E. E. Burr has the thanks of the  Gazette for a bundle of fine crisp radishes grown in his garden out on the  ranch. Those who were inclined to  scoff at tlie idea of making a ranch up  on any of the uiount'iins over-looking  the Similkameen valley would probably be surprised to see the success that  has attended cultivation of the soil in  the Burr settlement, where garden  vegetables grow vigorously and the j  fruit trees that have been set out are  doing well. It was the same at Midway when the first mountain land was  occupied, but that is a good many  years' ago, and thousands of tons of  agricultural products have been grown  and marketed off those same ranches.  One thing that the Board of Trade  should soon grapple with is the matter  of mining maps for Camp Hedley. It  still remains one of those unaccountable things that in spite of all the  work that has been done in Camp  Hedley, and the amount of bullion  that has been minted, no blue, prints  showing location of the claims are  procurable. In Camp McKinney and  all Boundary camps, any one can get  a. sheaf of them if he wants them, for  almost every surveyor who did any  work in the camp prepared blue prints  showing location of all the claims.  Now the greater number of claims on  Nickel Plate mountain have been  Crown granted, and they couldn't be  Crown granted until they were surveyed ; so why can't we. get blue  prints?

Editor "Gazette,"  Hedley,���������  Sir : In my recent paper on Insects,  as published in the Gazette, I stated an  old hut apparently erroneous belief  that black knot was caused by insects.  I have since received the following  from Prof. Fletcher, of Central Experimental Farm:  "The black knot of the plum and  cherry is caused by a. fungous disease,  Plowrightia Morbosa. There are various kinds of larvae, both of moths and  beetles, which feed in these galls from  the time they are green and soft until  .they are hard and brown inside. These  have nothing to do Avith the formation  of the knots, which is caused entirely  by the poisonous irritation set up by  the fungous."  F. C. Wilson.
