O. HON >M  IVancouver,  B.C.  (Burne, Temple & Tunbridge  Holders of Hedley Gold 3Iining Co.  stock are, hugging tiglitly to their  holdings and as a result those who  have endeavored to obtain it on the  stock market in New York have been  met with  disappointment  every time  they have  tried.    The reason lor this  is very  apparent when it is known  that' the mine and works are in first  class condition and operating at a clip  which enables the Board in New York  to continue handing out the dividends  on a. twenty per cent per annum basis,  Double-header dividends have marked the last three quarters declared in  December 1910 and in March and June  1911.   The following is the latest dividend notice sent out to shareholders:  HEDLEY GOLD MINING CO.  42 Broadway  New York, .lune 0th, 1911.  A quarterly dividend of three per  cent (3%) and an additional dividend  of two per cent (2%) has this day been  declared on  the   outstanding capital  stock of this Company pavable June  30th, 1911 to stockholders on record at  3:00 o'clock p. in.,   Friday, June  16,  1911. ;     "    '    ���������   G'  Transfer books will be closed on Friday, Juno 10th, 1911, at 3:00 o'clock  p. 111. and re-opened on Saturday, July  1st. 1911, at 10:00 o'clock a. in.  Hedlev Gold Mining co.  ,- John. D. Clarke, See.  There is now little reason to doubt  that the five pet* cent quarterly dividend has become an established policy  for the Nickel Plate and not merely a  special bon bon dispensed in holiday  time to make stockholders feel that it  is holiday time. The only explanation  of it is that the mine is steadily earning the money which permits the distribution of this handsome profit and  is likely to continue doing so for many  years to come. Of course the weather  and some of.the other disadvantages  occasionally effecting most mines may  be experienced once in a while but the  mine and the plant- are in such shape  that even these are not likely to make  any -marked difference or interfere  with the established policy or programme.  Altogether, the operations and methods of the present company is in such  marked contrast with that pursued by  their predecessors that the public have  scarcely yet been able to shake off the  old impressions concerning the camp  and its position with regard to the  mining industry in this province. The  old company surrounded every thins*  with an air of mystery and conducted  its business in a whisper and they even  succeeded in inoculating the provincial  mineralogist, with the same 'esoteric  lymph. Tlie present company neither  seek publicity nor try to conceal and  nobody looks frightened any more  lest he should have said something  that he shouldn't.  The present, company have at the  head mining men directing the policy  who are able to size up their holdings  and understand the capabilities. It  was this which made them deal with  the matter of improving the plant for  additional capacity and more efficient  work, and we think we are safe in  saying that had they known as much  OEOHGE  V. ASD QlJEEN MARY CROWNED TODAY  WILL EXAMINE STEAMBOAT  Mr. Camsell Arrives in The District and  Has Gone Into Camp on the  Tulameen  MAY BE ANOTHER RAND  What Investigation of Tulameen Ter-  . tiary Conglomerates May Show  Mr. Charles Camsell. of the Canadian Geological Survey whose work in  this district and particularly hi* study  of Camp Hedley and report thereon  has been one of the most important  and exhaustive sent out by thedepart-  inent,arrived in Hedley on Friday last  on his way to the camp already established for him by his assistants on the  Tulameen.     His assistants this year  are A. M. Bateman and B. Rose, both  fresh   from    Yale   but   formerly   of  Queen's University, Kingston, and the  junior of the party  is Mr.  Allen,  a  Queen's   student.     Messrs.   Bateman  and Rose were here  last   week and  went on to make camp.  Camp Hedley, however,   continues  to  occupy a large place in Mr. Cam-  sell's estimation and it would he too  much  to expect that he  could   pass  through without stopping oft'to note  the  results of latest development on  the  Nickel Plate for on  that depends  the  proof or otherwise as to the correctness of the deductions contained in  his report.  On Friday Mr. Camsell went through  the mill to note the improvemen ts in  the plant and on Saturday morning  he accompanied Mr. Jones to the mine  when he had the opportunity of going  through   the    various   underground  workings and it is safe to say that Iniode of occurrence  apart from the heads of the company  in New York there is no visitor who  could take a keener interest in noting  the results from development and the  story of the origin and subsequent history of the rock formation which the  succeeding years of development unfolds.  This season on tho Tulameen the  work of Mr. Camsell and his party  will have first to do with a little further investigation of the diamond bearing rocks, but early.in July he will go  into Steamboat Camp and after he  has made an examination and reported on the properties about which there  has been so much extravagant newspaper publicity the public will at least  have something definite to go on and  can form some idea of the proper proportions of wheat and chaff in what  has been given out concerning them  bv the stock boosters.  Another very interesting circumstance which will have some of Mr.  Camsell's attention this summer will  be a closer investigation of the te.i tiary  conglomerates* on the Tulameen.    The  importance of this will  be recognized  iri a moment  when we think of   the  analogy existing between chat section  and the Rand in South Africa where  the tertiary conglomerates have yielded such enormous returns and given  rise to a mining industry  on so great  and permanent a scale.   Now that diamonds have been found on  the Tulameen  in rock overlying the tertiary  conglomerates  the  analogy  between  the two becomes most marked.  Years  ago Dawson 'found gold in the tertiary  conglomerates near Kamloops but the  possibilities where they are in. direct  association   with   the  diamond   and  platinum bearing rocks on the  Tulameen are infinitely greater and it will  not be at all surprising if  something  of vast importance   does   not result  from investigation of the circumstance.  Men like Mr. Camsell to whose minds  economic problems of this kind suggest themselves can  perform a most  valued service to the mining industry.  When he left here on   Monday morning for his camp on the Tulameen he  expected  to meet Prof. Nicol of the  School of Mining, Kingston, who has  been attracted  by the diamond find  and is likely to stop a few weeks with  Mr. Camsell and his party looking into the  diamond   deposits   and   their  Rumor That the Property is Under Bond  to T. D. Pickard  A rumor' was current in town oil  Suturday to the effect that a bond had  been taken on the Apex group oi* ruin-,  era! claims 'by T. D. Pickard. Thus  far we have been unable lo verify the*'  repot t and can only give it as rumor.  Novel ihele-.s it i*- not out of place  under the circumstance-.-* to express  the belief that there is nothing at all  unlikely about it for-the property is  known to possess exceptional merit  and it is doubtful whether there is any  mining man in a position to know  more about the property and what,  may be expected of it than Mr. Pickard does.  The Apex group which lies a few  mile.-, east of the Nickel Plate was  sold about two years ago by W. IX  McMillan to Geo. F. Wiliey.of AVh-  York, who afterwards entered into  agreement for sale of it to a corporation Known as the Colonial Gold Min  ing Company who appealed to have  some very good men among them and  made a commencement at development work in the summer of 1909, but  so far as leal development work is concerned did not appear to have made  much headway and were unfortunate  in the matter of maintaining their financial credit. However, the property  reverted to Willcy and it i= by no  means unlikely that a bona fide deal  may be on as above indicated.' Jf so,  it gives promise of a genuine effort to  give the properly wh.-u it has never  yet. had and that is���������a fair chance to  show what it can do.

As it is they have a plant that in  point of efficiency frequently effects  an extract ion running up to 0-1 and !)(i  per cent and that is reasonably sure of  continuous operations at all seasons of  a normal year. This surely is a. state  of a Hairs which when going hand in  hand with a five per cent dividend  every three months should make contented and good humored stockholders.  "An Appeal to the British-Born" is  the title of the second pamphlet sent  out by the Canadian National League.  This pamphlet is from the pen of the  secretary Arthur Ha.wkes who is himself British-born and of strong British  Liberal leanings, believing that British Liberalism is everything that is  right, proper and politic; that there  was no such thing as a Little Engla.nd-  e.r anywhere outside a. British Tory's  imagination and that Laurier was the  Canadian exponent of British Liberalism, but the menace to imperial unity  apparent in the reciprocity pact and  Sir Wilfrid's attitude on treaties and  defence at the conference is proving  an eye-opener to him.  livery man born in the British Isles  who has made, Ins home in Canada  should get a copy of this pamphlet  which may he had free of charge by  sending to the Canadian National  League,     311     Mcivinnon     Building,  Toronto.  The object of the  National   League  which claims to owe  no  party  allegi-  Mi'. E. Jacobs, of Victoria, came in  on Friday's train from the Boiindary  and next day went on west, intending  to go back to the coast by way of Mer-  ritt and Spence's Bridge. Although  Mr. Jacobs has for the past ten or  twelve years made a specialty of mining publicity this was thejirst time he  had ever been in Hedley which is British Columbia's principal gold camp.  His connections for effective mining  publicity embrace some of the leading  mining magazines and   dailv papers  and  it is  whollv to the journals for  which  ho corresponds  that he looks  for remuneration for his work, for the  paragraph  which -ha* been going the  rounds of the press  to the effect that.  he has  been  retained  by the government of British Columbia  to engage,  in publicity work for themines department was  without due  authority and  altogether premature.    Had the state-,  merit been true we are quite sure that  none of the  newspaper fraternity in  British Columbia to whom his work is  best known would have had anything  but   commendation   for the arrangement.   In Hedley then- has been some  disposition   to find    fault   with   Mr.  Jacobs' apparent neglect of this camp,  but when it is known   that   his earnings from contributions are all he has  to depend on and  that travel'through  the mining districts of British Columbia is a heavy item  of expense at best  and  gets away  with a.  lot of time a.-  well as  money   reasonable allowance  must  be  made.     The  man   who  sets  himself the task of getting his mining  information    at    first   hand    for    the  greater  part  of what    In-   sends   out  must   face   that   heavy   expense   and  hence   frequent   visits  can   hardly   he  looked for.      During the   brief time at  his disposal in Hedley he went through  the stamp mill but was unable to vi-.it  the mine,   as he had   to take   thefoie-  noon   train   to   Princeton in   order   to  make  connections.     On   one occasion  the  Gazette   was   locked   horns   with  Mr.   Jacobs on   a certain   matter  connected with ('lamp Hedley mining pnb-  passcd and gone  ance is announced to be:   "To promote  the sense of  Canadian   nationality  as i licity, but  that is all  an increasihg power   within the   Brit-j and now wo will be  only to pleased to  ish Kmpiro. and to preserve unimpair-j assist him   in any way we   can for the  ed the Canadian   and British channels   common benefit of tin* camp as well as  of commerce  on  which the prosperity j for old friendship's  sake which should  of the Dominion   has been founded.       ��������� not be  forgotten   for the  sake of  one   ^o.  j little tiff in   which both   were perhaps  llow would  Sir  Richard sound for 1 more or less to blame.

The opposition on the. other hand with La-.trier  at their head, recognizing the unpopularity of the measure in the country  and the political capital to be made  out of a vigorous opposition to prevent its passing, used every means at  their disposal in parliamentary practice to kill the bill and kill it tliey did  without any threat of a blow from the  closure club being aim at them. That  is a circumstance which the electors  of Canada will remember on polling  day if Laurier dares to use the closure  to force on the people of this country  a destructive, ill-considered measure  without any mandate whatever 'from  the people to do so.

THE CLOSURE   THREATS  ... - r        "  The old closure threat is again being made in connection with the wish  of the Laurier government to force  ratification of the reciprocity pact  upon the people of Canada. A recent  occasion upon which an attempt to  apply it wa> suggested was in connection with a'measure proposed for putting the preparation of partisan voter's  lists.in the power of the government  when leader Borden and his supporters  wen; standing up valiantly for the protection of the people's right* to a free  untrammelled franchise. On that occasion Duncan Ross, determined not  to be foiled in his wish to gag the electors of Yale-Caiiboo into returning  him by unfair advantage, was one of  tlie loudest in his calls for the. closure,  but the government receded from an  unpopular position and by making  important modifications in the obnoxious measure avoided the necessity on  their part of forcing by means of the  closure. To attempt it in the. case, of  this reciprocity measure would be  more'outrageous than in any other instance in which threat was.ever made  in this country to apply it. Laurier  has been getting more tyrannical and  hard-headed year by year but to do as  proposed in this case would be to out-  Kruger Kruger in the days of "Oom  Paul's rankest despotism, for it has  been shown plainly in the recent debates that the reciprocity measure is  one which the government ha.- no fair  constitutional right to bring up at all  much less attempt to force through by  means so drastic as the closure. If  there ever was a time in the parliamentary history of Canada- when a  government would have been justified  in applying it the occasion was in 189(5  when the "remedial bill" was before  the house for in that case the administration was not doing the. thing in  gratification of their own wishes but  quite the reverse. They merely introduced a measure which was distasteful  to many of themselves and which they  knew was exceedingly unpopular in  the country and were doing it solely  in obedience to the expressed direction  if the highest court in the realm inasmuch as the privy council of Great  jh'itain had given out its decision that  t was not only within the powers but  was the duty of the Dominion govern-  .���������SUBSCWBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  "13*  ^o^jff^rcoTijir  70U WORK,  MflKE MR MONEY  WORKT00.

There: is said to be an auto stage line  running down the Okanagan valley  between Penticton and Oroville a distance of 50 miles.

For Full Information Write or Call on  GOLF HANDICAP RESULTS  The moderately warm days and cool:  nights of the past   ten days have been  .affording ideal conditions for taking  away the snow on the higher mountains with the minimum amount of  danger from destructive floods. The  Similkameen river has now been running bank full for so long a time that  all danger for this year should now be  - practioally over.  Word has been received that  Brookes, president of the Redeemable  Investment Co. is expected in Hedley  shortly and the visit is believed: to  augur well for the prosecution of  work on the Kingston. The suit has  been settled in regard to tlie P. O. Department charges. Norman Plass appears to have been the only real offender and in president Brookes'case  the authorities by way of letting  themselves down declared him merely  technically guilty and imposed a  nominal Hue.  Mr.  Thos. C.  Tanner,  representing  the Bank of Vancouver, was  in town  for a few days the past week interesting the  public in   the stork of that  institution which is the first chartered  bank for  this province and the stock  is  being practically all  placed  in the  province   instead of disposed to wealthy syndicates  in the  east,    The par  value  of  the stock  is $100 per share  and the first subscription is   all being  taken up at $120 so as not to impair the  capital by taking outof it the expenditure necessary for incorporation and  organization.     This  is  the  first time  the people of B. C. have had an opportunity, to  obtain   bank stock  at the  first subscription  price,   and   a  good  many small shareholders are availing  themselves of the chance.   In this way  the stock of the bank will be so widely  distributed  over the province   that it  will   lie  difficult   to   manipulate   and  control.    The  Board of Directors are  all  British  Columbia  men   who  have  made  their own   way in  finance and  can In* counted on to give the affairs  of the  bank closer attention   than   is  generally  bestowed on  institutions of  the kind by directors. R.P. McLennan  is president and Lieutenant-governor  Patterson and L. W. Shatford are on  the Board of directors.  i The. golf handicap;-tournament;appears to havejdi-agged somewhat during: the past', week, there being several  of: the matches; defaulted; Between the  wins and the default.'results, those who  emerged from the second round were.  Rolls, 'Miss Jackson, Barclay and  iTpwnsend. From the third round:the  'survivors were Rolls and Townsend.:  Thus:tlie :final: playoff match the result of which was of course a foregone,  conclusion left Rolls the winner. Tlie  tremendous growth of weeds and other  vegetation < along the fairway makes  the playing more tedious than formerly, not only from the time lost in looking for lost*balls but also because of  the fact that in playing through the.  green.making medium approach shots  no ball that is not well lofted has any  chance to make any reasonable distance or fetch up at the spot intended.

Customs' Collector, is at Myncastor relieving the Collector there  'who is taking a holiday.  C Ai. Shaw, P.L.S., lias been laboring diligently in this district during  the past two weeks and has about  completed all the work in sight.  Rev, Mr. Osborne, the new -Methodist, clergytii-rn at Princeton, and his  wife spent a'day in town last week on  their wav up the valley, the guests of  Mr. and'.Mrs, Crooker.  Mrs. Smith and daughters of Hod-  ley are spending. a few days with  friends in Kereiueos this week and  will lend valuable assistance at the  concert on Thursday evening.  Tommy Daly who is playing ball  with the Okanogan team has not met  with any more defeats since his reverse-at Oroville and now has a long  string .of victories to his credit.' He is  expected home after the 4th of July  games.  Dr. George Hart, of Vernon, eye.  specialist, spent a. couple of days in  town this' week to tlie advantage of  many here whose lamps were not burning as brightly as they should. The  visit "f a dentist would also be appre-  , ciated by many.  J. H. Brown, Indian agent of Siuii-  merland. arrived in town last week  for the purpose of taking the census,  of the Si washes in this valley. His arrival was ill-timed as all the Indians  were out of the valley attending some  religious pow-wow.  B. H. Jordon and J. D. Houston, of  Nelson were visitors in Keremeos for  a. day last week on their way up to  Princeton. The former is a brother-  in-law of the Rev. Jno Pringlo and an  old acquaintance of Rev. Mr. Gam  eron's.  The Land Company have a man and  team nt work on the property of Mr.  Fargo west of town, plowing, levelling and seeding down with clover.  This is an attractive piece of property  and with the work now being done  should be in excellent shape for planting fruit trees in the spring.  Mr. and Mrs. George Clarke and  Benny left on Monday evening to  spend the summer in the Cariboo  country where Mr. Clarke has business interests. He hopes to be able to  dispose of his interests there, this summer and when he returns here in the  fall hopes to be able to remain.  T. C. Brooke, of Princeton, drove  down on Monday and is spending a  few days this week on his lot here,  irrigating the trees and looking after  his garden. Mr. Brooke says that they  had eight degrees of frost in the upper  valley on Sunday evening. At Keremeos it was noticed that it turned  cool that evening but the thermometer remained well up in the forties and  -there was no.thought of frost.  Mr . E. Jacobs, of Victoria, an authority on mining matters and a contributor to all the leading mining  ���������journals'in America, passed through  here on Friday last on his way to the  rich mineral fields of the upper valley  and although fruit lands and horticulture are|out of his line he had heard  so much about the climate and won-  ��������� derful possibilities of the lower Similkameen that he decided to remain  over here a day and see for himself.  He found that conditions had not  been exaggerated and we trust that  among the able reports from his pen  of mining conditions in the Similkameen will appear some favorable mention of the great fertility and attractive feature-- of the  Keremeos district, j  "Jessie" the little Shetland pony |  owned by I-'red Gibson's children and !  recently brought by fliein from Vancouver is the envy of all the other'  kiddies in town and if a dealer in horse j  flesh were to bring a. bunch of these j  diminutive equities in -,o-niorrow i  there would be no peace for any par- J  cut in town until their children had j  one "just like it." Ordinarily "Jessie" j  is most docile and tractable and .  readily submits to anything that could  be asked of a saddle horse but appai-  ently considers being hitched to a .  common cart "infra dig" as when oc- i  casion warrants it. she will give an  exhibition of rough house that badly  frightens, if it does not hurt, the  youthful owners. To the grown-up  horse"- "Jessie" is an enigma and a  small black bear could not put them  into a worse state -of panic when they  come across her unawares.  K  X.
