C  Clocks and Watches for Sale.  Montreal, June7.--An unprecedented  influx of inimigrants through Quebec  and Montreal during the month of  May is reported, the actual paid transportation showing a total of just, over  29,000 people, and as this does not include children carried free, who bear  an average proportion to adult passengers of one in five, the actual total is  probably nearer 31,000. These figures  represent thml-class travellers only.  NOVA SCOTIA  ELECTIONS  Opposition Have   Hope of Overturning  Government  Halifax, N. S. June 7��������� Straight tick  ets .were nominated today for the pro-'  vincial elections in all eighteen counties of Nova Scotia. The keenness of  the.contest on the part,of the Opposition is shown by the fact that they  have allowed no returns by acclama-'  tion as was the. case in previous contests.  The Government party is claiming  to be sure of as big a majority as before, when they elected 32 of their 38  candidates.  On the other hand the Conservatives  express the 'utmost confidence that  they, will divide the province equally  and they say that they even have reason for believing that the Murray-  Government will be,defeated.  S. H. C. MINER DIES  Was the Man Who Made Copper Mining a Success in the Boundary  Montreal, 10.���������S.-'H. C. Miner who;  was prominent for many years in  mining and financial circles in Montr  real and Western Canada, is dead at  Granby, Que., aged 70. He was for  years connected with smelting interests inLthe West, and was the founder  of the Granby Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Company and for long one  of its largest shareholders.  Readers of tho Gazette tiro watchin?  with interest the progress of negotiations for the purchase of the-Hidden  Creek injurs) on Goose Bay by the  Granby Co. which has had a bond on  the property for the purchase of an 80  per cent interest, the. remaining 22 per  cent being retained by Mr. 31. K. Rodgers. ���������     ���������  The Granby ' Company have   done  considerable development work under  their bond and so fur-as any   reports  given out are  concerned they appear  -to.be*well satisfied with the property.,  The bond expires the middle of June  so that it is doubtless a. settled affair  by this time. The consideration h  claimed to he ������400.000 for the SO pet-  cent which sets a. value of half a mil-;  lion on the mine.  It is reported that the Granby peopled following the plan which they did  in tlie Boundary nt placing their smelter a considerable distance from the  mine, were figuring on locating their  smelting plant at Prince Rupert, but  tliis does not meet the views of Mr.  Rodgers who thinks it would be better business to build the smelter whore  the ore is and haul the coke to the ore  instead of hauling tho'oie to the coke-,  where the quantity of coke iised is  only, about one-tenth the. tonnage of  the ore. Besides, 3Ir. Rodgers cpnsid-  ers Goose Bay, a better location, because of its convenience to the Camps  on' Portland Canal, and the. custom  work which this would bring.

GREGORY  CIVIL KN'GIXEER" avd 11RITISH  COLUMMA LAND SURVEVOR  Star Building      -       Princeton  The month of 3Iay has been the  biggest month in the history of the  "Nickel Plate mine in ore tonnage and  in every other-wayincluding closeness  of extraction, showing that the new  plant is meeting all expectations held  out for it.  May, of course, is a favorable month  for purposes of comparison for in that  month there is a.buudance of water to  run everything and the plant is therefore in position to run with the maximum of economy so far as working  expenses are concerned. The following -figures show the tonnage' mined  and treated in the month of May'of  the last tnree years.  1909 1910 1911  3SH1 tons       4305 tons      5095 tons  Thus it is seen that the tonnage has  exceeded that of the past management by 126-1- tons for the month, but  the increase in the tonnage is only a  small part of what has been accomplished, for the extraction has been  much higher than ever before.  Of course the new plant has been  responsible for a certain amount of  this improvement but not altogether  for it will be seen that even in 1910  when no, change had been made  in the plant from that in use in 1909  the tonnage treated exceeded that of  1909 by 474 tons.  The increase in the tonnage of ore  treated has not been the result of any  addition to the crushing capacity for  the number of stamps now at work is  exactly the same as that used when  the mill first started up seven years  ago.  Another important feature which  should not be lost sight of which  makes the present showing even better* in comparison than would appear  from first sight, is that heretofore the  operations were confined wholly to  extraction of ore and no care was  taken to keep development work  ahead. Now, however, this is altogether different and development  work is going steadily forward, the  cost being charged up to operating expenses and still the monthly profit is  much higher than when they were  merely picking the eyes out of the  mine in their inordinate greed for  dividends.  OBITUARY  Felix Darragh,  better known in tho  district as ,,PhiP died  in Kamloops  and was taken last week to Okanagan  Falls for burial, Rev. J. A. Cleland, of  Penticton,  conducting the burial service.     Darragh   was Irish   and  had  worked at mining in northern Ontario  before coming to B. C,  for he   had  known 3Iose Austin and other miners  from the Sudbury country and he ive-  quently spoke of Col. Sam Hughes, of  Lindsay for whom he had a great adT  miration. His first work that we know  of in B. C. was  in Camp McKinney in  the summer of '97 when he worked in  the Cariboo and afterwards in other  properties in that camp a.s  well as m  Fairview and about three vears ago iii  the Nickel Plate, after which he went  on his ranch on Kilpoola mountain on  the range between  the Similkameen  and the Okanagan near the Boundary  line.   He and  the Lacy boys, Bill and  Tom, who were Newfoundlander*, and  miners, were the first to take up land  in'that locality and the name Kilpoola  which they gave to the mountain was  doubtless bestowed by Phil. The Lucys  have both since died of coiusumpliou  like many of the other old Cariboo  miners and while we have not heard  the cause of death in Darragh's case it  is not at all unlikely  that with  him  too the old Caribou mine is sciii gathering in its harvest, for the Cariboo in  most of its stopes especially in   the  latter years of its operation was a diamine and many of  the miners foolishly chose the dry spots  to work   in,  never thinking  that therein  lay the  greater danger,  for the fine silicious  dust from  the machine drills working  on a quartz vein was all the while doing its fatal work.     His nephew Felix  D'lrragh, of  Vancouver,  who  lately  came out from   the old country was  with him before his death and brought  the   remains   to   the   Okanagan   for  burial.

Dune. Woods came in yesterday  from Summerland and is going to  work on .some of bis best holdings in  Camp Hedley.  Johnnv Ileum, who has been at-  tending the Colorado School of 31 ines  in Denver, eaiiie iii on Saturday and  will spend his .summer holidays in  Hedley fretting the practical insight,  into mining operations in the Nickel  Plate mine which is so essential to the  mining student. This is his first visit  to Medley since nlie summer of 1909  when he w,-is he'.:- for a few weeks  with his fathei ami mother! When  he was here before- the mine had. a  husky baseball learn but as that game  is somewhat quiescent at present both  at the mine and in Hedley, he will  have to take tn golf for recreation  during his stay.  C. E. Salisbury, advance agent with  Cosgrove's entertainment bureau was  in town last week and signed up with  the Hedley Hospital for two attractions tube put on here on January  10th and Feb. 10th, of next year. It  seems a long way ahead but that is  the way all the best attractions are  handled nowadays. The Cosgrove  -bureau has a noted list of attractions,  but most of them are of too pretentious character to bring into this neck  of the woods. Among their attractions  are tlie famous Welch Ladies' Choir,  the Juvenile Bostonians, the English  Bell Ringers, the International Operatic Co.,Ferguson's*Dixie Jubilee Singers, the Castle Square Entertainers-  and the Bostonian Maids. The two  attractions bookeel for Hedley are the  Dixie Jubilee Singers and the Castle  Square Entertainers. They are; bringing the Juvenile Bostonians through  B. C. in September and may possibly  give Keremeos one night on their way  through to the Boundary.  Mr. A. H. Brown's visit to Hedloy  last week, though short was enjoyable  all round. His old friends were all  pleased to see him again and he him  self seemed to enjoy meeting them.  That the works in their present state  were an object of intense interest to  him goes without saying. Since he  left here in the fall of 1905 he has spent,  a. good deal of time around Cobalt and  in other parts of Northern Ontario  and gives a very interesting account  of mining conditions in that part of  the Dominion. During that time al.se>  he has put in several plants for the  treatment of ores by cyanidation and  he has also done considerable prospecting as well. Unlike inanv Ii. (\ prospectors, however, who have gone lithe Ontario fields he has no condemnation of the mining laws in force there  but thinks their law has many excellent features that are in the interests  of the province and of the mining industry. Since going through the mine  and reduction plant here he is no less  enthusiastic as to the future of the  mine and camp than ever he was. In  fact his confidence has increased.

What the local niacin-  nury is for enforcement of the provincial health  laws we do  not pretend to  know, but one thing is yery apparent  and that   is that the party  or parties  to whom  authority has been given to  see that the town is kept in a sanitary  condition   cannot   be taking   the duty  very    seriously,    or   someone    would  know ,-it  least who   is in a  position to  act when required.     Complaints have  been   made to  the Gazette   in   several  instances, of the existence of fly-breed-  places in   different   parts of the  town,  but further than passing tlie complaint  on and   ventilating the  matter  in the  paper   in a   general   way we   have   no  more authority  nor responsibility in  the    matter   than   the   complainants  themselves.    Every place in town that  is a breeding spot for flies should have  immediate attention  and if those who  are   responsible  for  the   existence   of  such   menaces  will not  take steps to  remedy  the evil  the interests of the  general    public    demand     that     the  authorities  step in   and see   Mia*"   it is  done'quickly anel effectively.     Whine  Jlie-s are   swarming about going   from  disease   breeding sink-holes and other  germ laden substances and from there  to   foodstuffs  served   out   for   human  consumption    there is  always danger  of contagion.    Fancy one of these disease-carrying  insects   half  buried   in  the sputum of a. careless consumptive,  Hying   direct to a.  supper  table where  it may light on the daintiest viands or  lighting   in a cup of tea or coffee, and  yet there is nothing unlikely about it  for it is a thing that very often occurs.  In    infantile diseases   there   is   little  doubt  that  much  of the mortality is  ���������elite   to  carelessness   in  allowing   the  ���������child   and   its food  to  be exposed  to  contamination from the house fly.    A  fly in the kitchen,   the dining-room or  the  nursery  is a   menace.     There are  dangers  enough   without   permitting  one as preyentable as this,   therefore  early and late from May until October  make war on this  common   enemy of  mankind, the housefly.  of Phoenix  camp   but those   who  are  iii   ;i   position    to   know   more   of  the   _.

C. Miner.      It is  rather a  humiliating admission   to  make (aud  yet it is only true) that if the Opinions ,  of the most eminent mining  men   had  been followed ������������������instead  of the practical  common sense  of  a  manufacturer  of  shoes who didn't get rattled  not- lose  his. head when told by those who were  supposed to know   that he -had' made  a bad investment which  would  mean  for  him  a, serious  loss    bub was cool  enough to get down  to figures iii  the.  way thu shrewd 'manufacturer .does,  and once,, he could see a profit in  the  working up of the  materials  he  hael  on hand   he did not care a fig for the  opinions or prophesies of the  'ologists  but went right ahead.     That is exactly what happened in the case of Miner  and the Granby.    Had provincial mineralogist Carlisle's report of 1897   been  issued before Miner had invested with  Graves in Olel Ironsides, or had Miner  taken the report  sufficiently  to heart  after he hael invested to conclude that  it was a   case   where   good   monev  should not be'thrown  after bad   it is  not difficult to decide.'what it would  have meant for the Boundary  and for  the copper  mining  industry . in   this  province.  Laurier's reception in London this  year lucked many degrees from retaining the warmth of his triumph of  1897. Kcciprooity falls far short of  British preference as a shemt-i aiser in  England. But suspicious as reciprocity is in itself the Canadian premier  hael to make the matter worse by his  attitude of opposition to imperial  unity as shown by the extraordinary  course he chose to take in the Conference";. In fact there are more Canadians  who will oppose him in his attitude in  the matter of Canada's position with  the rest of the empire, for impeiial tie-  fence than were disposed to condemn  him for his reciprocity stanel. Some  of his more idolatrous friends in Canada have geuio so far as to state that  his swift changes in policy that lookeel  like inconsistency to orelinary mortals  were in his case only evidences of his  genius but the average stolitl Britisher  is too slow of movement to follow in  the. sharp curves anel acme angles that  Sir Wilfrid has asked his followers in  Canada, to negotiate.

Their trees are   driving  those of Ontario arid United   States  nurseries'out of the fields in Kootenay  Boundary and   Similkameen districts.

Following the compliment which Premier  McBride paid to an old-time miner in  Cariboo whom he presented this year  with his 50th free miner's, licence it  will d6ubtless be for him a pleasant  privilege to perforin a like gracious  compliment to Hughie Campbell next  year.

Gravenor, better know as Shruhb,  who was formerly employed at the  Nickel Plate is now in provincial police employ and was in Hedley last  week with a prisoner whom he had  gathered in at Steamboat and was  taking to Hope. Shrubb was a. marathon runner and this should be a convenient accomplishment for him in his  present calling in running down long  winded prisoners.  Jupiter Pluvius certainly put on a  spurt for a. little while on Tuesday  when a big rain storm that was almost a cloudburst passed over the  valley. In 13 minutes it rained .49  inches at Hedley and .52 at the mine.

The owner was on  the first stretch of an intended trip  through this valley, the Okanagan  and home by way of the main line of  the C. P.

At the time of writing, Tuesday  morning, the Siinilkameen is reported  to be at high water mark for this  year. With the slightly cooler weather that set rn last evening the water  should begin to abate to-day. however and no inconvenience from high  water is anticipated. Gangs of workmen have been busy keeping all  bridges clear of driftwood.  Rev. A. H. Cameron ' performed a  couple of marriage ceremonies here on  Friday evening. The first was L; E.  Evarts, formerly of Penticton, and  May Bowden. also of Penticton. The  wedded couple are taking up their  residence at Ashnola where the.groom  is employed in foreman's Young's road  camp. The other marriage was that  of Elvie McMurtry and Alma Burde,  both of Oroville.  G. S. Lawrence of the B. C. Fruit-  land Co. spent the week end in Keremeos on his return from Greenwood  where he had been attending the suit  of Surprise vs. McDonald. Messrs.

Oil Monday evening a volunteer  bucket brigade had a busy half hour  quenching an incipient bush fire on  ���������the'lot of Mrs. McLellan. west of town.  A chinaman, who had been employed  during the day'on. the lot. started, a  lire close to the hush and at 6 o'clock  sauntered home quite indifferent to  results. A couple of hours later the  bush was noticed to be on fire and it  required considerable effort to quench  the blaze. A fine of ten dollars and a  wholesome warning .would have a  beneficial effect in a case like this.  No decision was given by the bench  at Greenwood last week in the suit of  Surprise vs. McDonald. After .the evidence of the witnesses for the plaintiff  was all in and the judge had partially  examined the defendant he strongly  recommended the "���������parties to settle the  case out of court and the case was adjourned to give them an opportunity  to decide on something mutually satisfactory. The result was that it was  decided to leave it to arbitration. Each  party is to appoint an appraiser and  these will name a third. The old agreement will be annulled and whatever  the appraisers decide upon will be the  price of the ranch. Should the purchasers decline to go through with the  purchase at the price fixed the costs of  the commission will be assessed to  them. The suit created a great deal  of interest around here and in all  about a dozen witnesses were in attendance. Lawyer Hallet. of Greenwood,  better known as "The Judge" conducted the case for the plaintiff while  Mr. Billings, of Vernon, was counsel  for the defendant. Three weeks is the  time allowed for appraising the value  of the property and reaching a settlement.  J. A.
