G. H. TURNER. Sec't.  For the second time in 1913, the Hed-  h-y Golel Mining Company is distrihn-  ting profits from its mining anel milling operations a I tho Nickel Plate  property at'Hedley. This is the second  dividend of the year, and provides for  the distribution of $60,000, heing the  regular quarterly 3% and an additional bonus of 2% on the capital stock.  The total paid in dividends by this'  company since they acquired thes property in August 1909 is now $081,000.  anel if the* present rate is continued,  the million mark will bo pat-sod by a  goodly amount by the payment of one  more dividend.  Development work has more than  kept pace with the mining oi" the ore  required to pay these dividends. The  reserves have been steadily increased,  until it is now estimated that fully  23,000 tons of broken ore are in the  stopes, ready to be sent down the  tram. With the hotter facilities that  have now been provided by the No. -t  tunnel for the handling of ore, and the  new Dickson incline shaft, which will  soon be a factor in more economical  hoisting, the cost of mining should be  materially decreased, anel the future  of the Nickel Plate as a dividend payer is decieledly rosy.  The  official   announcement   of   the  dividend-is as follows:  Hkdley Gold : Mining ..Cojipaxy  42 Broadway ���������'.,",,.  New York, June 11, 1913  A quarterly dividend of three per  cent (3%) and an additional divielenel  of,two per cent. (2%) has this day been  declared on the outstanding capital  stock of this Company, payable on  Monday, June 30th, 1913 to stockholders of recorel at 3:00 o'clock "p. m., 011  Monday, June 16th, 1913.

Tn view of the fact, that the C.P.R;  ccuild^not complete', the proposed new  boat'for the Okamigan Lake service,  pi'ovieled for in the 1913 estimates, in  time to be .pub into crnnmision this  year, it was recently decided by the  company to defer putting into operation the proposed double-daily service  on the Sicamous Okanagan Landing  branch for 'another season. This  statement was made by Mr. A. Ii.  Stevens, acting general superintendent  of the* Pacific elivision yesterday, when  asked as to the company's plans- with  regard to augmenting the present service on the Okanagan branch.  He pointed out that if the suggesU-d  elouble daily service: on the Sicamons  railway branch alone hael been instituted this season it would have resulted in a slower service for the people  living at points along the lake anil  wonlil have meant;-making connections with later jiyestboimcl trains,  which would have brought passengers  into Vancouver late in the clay.  The steamer to be built by the C.P.R  this year for service on the Okanagan  Lake will be a sister-craft to the fine,  splendidly-appointed, vessel recently  launched at Nelson for service On the  Arrow Lakes, jVIr.1 Stevens stated.  When it is constructed there will be  two boats each way daily on the lake  and two daily trains on the connecting bianch.  HOW IT HAPPENED  Particulars  as   to   Death   of   Billy.

London, June 10.���������If Mr Joseph  Martin lias his way Earl Grey will be  criminally prosecuted for what Mr  Martin calls "his seditious letter" in  the Timesof yesterday. Mr' Martin  has also given notice of his intention  to urge Mr Asquith in. the House of  Commons on weelnosday, to suppress  the Times.  In the letter which so excites Mr  Mar-tin's anger, Earl Grey expressed  heart-felt symyathy with Ulsterinen  in their fight against Home Rule and,  speaking from his Canadian experience1,  predicted bloodshed and civil war. Mr  Martin's displeasure with Earl Grey is  accentuated by the fact that his  lordship has been frequently quoted in  debate and urging a sympathetic  Unionist attitude towards Irish depopulation. Indeed, Mr Asquith, in the  House of Commons today, quoted from  a speech made by Earl Grey during the  debate on the second reading of the  Home Rule Bill in theHouse of Lords.  E. E.

A sail accident occurreel iu Greenwood last week, when John, the: eight  year old son of Mr. and Mrs. G. A.  Rendell, pioneers of the Boundary  country, was drowned in a pond. He  had gone in bathing alone, and no one  witnessed the accielent.  Work has been resumed on the  property of the Dividend .Lake View  Consolidate-el Campany. The Company owns several claims on- the west  siele of Osoyoos Lake, just north of  the International boundary. The  values are chiefly in gold, and the present plans include the erection of a  mill to Li-eat the oiVs.  A compressor.is heing installed near  the Nighthawk mine,, at the town of  that name.  The development of .the. Granby .Go's  new properties at Hidden Creek by  diamond'drilling.'has been very successful, and over 10,000,000 tons of ore  have been proven up by this means.  The warmer weather- in the Cariboo  country has made possible the renewal  of-operations'in the placer* miriiiig districts, situateel there.  The total ore "shipments from the  Boundary distiicb for 1913 has passed  the 900,000 ton mark with last week's  output. The Granby mines leael with  572,000 tons, and the Mother Lode was  second with 152,000 tons.  The British Columbia Copper Company has a force of 110 men employed  at the properties in upper Voigt's  Camp, both in diamond drilling and  other exploration.  Professsor Rees will make an ex-  tended'investigation of the clays of  this region this summer.  A total of 112,000 tons of ore has  been shipped this year from the Ross-  land mines to elate, over half of which  came from the Centre Star.  Work    is   going along   merrily   at  Clifton   which is the  name of the new  diamond eli-illing camp  which   is exploring the rugged mountain siele anel  canyons  to the east of Twenty-mile.  Two eli ills have been at work for a few  weeks anel it was the intention to start  another on Friday last���������that was Friday  13th,   1913���������just  to   demonstrate  the  fact that  the  mining capabilities  of the camp are proof against so colossal a hoodoo as Friday 13th. Mr. Beam  has his  exploration  force well organized, with capable  men in charge, and  the most favorable results are looked  for by the whole camp.    For more reasons than  one, Hedley  takes a kindly  interest in the present operations, and  best  wishes ge> out  for  the   highest  measure of success  in the enterprise.  A little over four years ago Mr. Beam  first arrived on the scene and proved a  fi-ienel   in  need,  for  it is  well-known  that    the    camp   was   then    passing  through a crises, the possible outcome  e^f  which is  not pleasant  to contemplate,   and   hail  he  not come at that  particular   time,    to   bring   about   a  change   which has shown   up the folly  of the  course being pursued by those  in charge,  there woulel have been  a  very different tale to tell to-day.  Some time during Monday night, or  early Tuesday morning, Win. Cohen,  a widely known half breed, living at  Keremeos, was bucked from his horse  near the easfc end of the railroad tunnel at Rich Bar, about four miles west  of Oroville, sustaining injuries from  which he subseeiuently died. Cohen,  who visiterl Oroville eprite frequently,  was in town Monday, anel while here  managed in some way that needs looking into to secure considerable liquor.  He left tor home sometime* during the  night on horseback. He was discovered at 5 o'clock Tuesday morning by  J as Duffy, the watchman at the tunnel, lying along side, of the railroad  embankment, with a gash in his head  and blei'eling very profusely. At that  time Cohen was still- bleeding, although unconscious. Daily placed the  body in a more conforlable position,  and sent worel of the accident into  town. It was a long time before Deputy Sheriff Carrel was notified, and  when he re-ached the spot Cohen was  elead.  Officer Carrel got into communication with Coroner McCampbell, at  Okanagan as soon as possible, and that  official came up to Oroville at once.  In company with L. W. Barnes anel  Headmaster Nelson ho repaired to the  scene of the accident on a hand car,  returning late iu the evening with the  r-emains. A thorough examination  was maele of the body at Mi-. Barnes'  morgue. The only outward anel visible  sign of injury was a gash an inch, or  an inch and a half, long above anel  just back of the right ear. The skull  was not fractured. The1 coroner was  of the opinion from a superficial examination that the neck was dislocated otherwise it woulel be difficult to  account for death following so soon  after the injury. The only things  found upon the clothing were a few  scraps of paper, evidently well worn  receipts, 50 cents in change, the fragments of a small bottle that had evidently contained whiskey, and a quart  bottle of whiskey partly consumed.  From the appearance of the ground  near where the body was discovered  it appeared that the horse commenced  bucking on the side hill, and clown  ovea- the railroad embankment, where  the rider was thrown, his head striking a large rock. This was plainly  evident from the quantity of blood on  the rock. Cohen was a very heavy,  stockily built man and must have  struck the rock with fearful force.  The only wonder is. under the circumstances that the skull was not crushed.  The coroner did not consider it necessary to put the county to the expense  of an" inquest, as death was plainly due  to pure accident.  The deceased was raised by the late  Frank Richter, and lived in anel near  Keremeos for 40 years. He was married, anel is stu-viveel hy a wife and a  number of children, some of whom arc-  grown. He was considered, a crack  horseman, and it is somewhat strange  that the animal was able to unseat  him. No doubt liquor was responsible  largely  for   his  death,   although   the  CONSERVATION A GREAT WORK  It is a Patriotic Duty All Canadians Owe  to Carry it On���������Ail Should Be Members of Association  rough nature eif the country where the  horse bucked would make it almost  impossible for any kind of a rider, no  matter how skillful, to letain his seat.  It is stated that the horse is a vicious  animal, and .some, time ago bucked off  anel killed a brother of Indian Edwards.���������Oroville Gazette.  The Canadian Forestry Association  was founded in 1900 to hasten the solution of this great economic problem.  Its mission is to organize the ideas  and efforts of those who see the necessity for action, anel to stimulate those  with whom the issue is not yet a burning one.  It publishes the Canadian Forestry  Journal, an illustrated monthly devoted to the interests of forest conservation.  ft puts inquirers in touch with the  best sources of information.  Its officers deliver illustrated lectures.  It holds conventions for I he interchange- of the latest and Imst ideas  among forestry experts.  The resolutions adopted at its meetings are regarded as an indication of  the desires of the Canadian people  with regard to forest reservation.  Not a few of the administrative reforms of the past few years are directly traceable to the Association's le-  coumicndations.  At the present time it is urging upon  the various Governments, limber  owners and the public:���������  (1) The prevention of scjuatting or  settlement on lands chiefly valuable  for limber.  (2) The placing of the employees of  all forest departments under civil service regulation.'', hy which all appointments and promotions will be upon  merit.  (Hj The formation of co-operative  fire protective associations.  (-1) The adoption of effective means  of disposal of logging debris.  (5) A revision of the fire acts of  Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.  In brief, it stands fora solid, progressive, scientific, business-like handling of all thenation's forest problems.  It wants virile, business-like, far-  seeing -'patriotic Canadians to join in  the great work.  Members get the Canadian'Forestry  Journal every month, anil the annual  report containing in full the addresses'  at the Association Conventions,1 and  are entitle*! also te> all the privileges of  delegates at suchConventions.  A normal annual fee of one dollar is  charged. Such membership fees p.-iy  less than one half of the Association's  annual expenses.  The Associations wants your membership, your participation in this  work of laying sure the basis of national prosperity.  It is laying it sure���������as much as any  individual citizen can.  There is an opportunity, even a responsibility before you.  (Jet in touch with the Association  now.

This is one of the largest and most  complete cement plants in the northwest, upward of half a million elollars  having been spent before the institution was ready to turn a wheel.

It  is  also  a conclusive  reply  to the  plea that.  Canada would  have  imposed   an   obligation   on   the  British Government by providing ships  for the  Admiralty to  maintain.     It is  clear  now that  iu the  opinion   of the.  British    Government   the   ships    are  neeeled, and that to such an extent an  emergency exists,     it is also clear that  tin-  Canadian   gift   would,   instead of  adding -in obligation to Great Britain,  have reliever!   the British taxpayer of  the cost of the ships.    Sir Wilfrid can.  not explain away these facts.

Dalton, Acting Manager  FORGOT TO DRINK  It is expected that the elehate on  the Marconi committee report.' whicir  is to occur today in the house (of com-  mons.'will be exciting. In well in-  .formed political circles it is asserted  that both Sir Rufus Isaacs, Attorney-  General,'anel. Da vie! Lloyd George,  Chancellor of the Exchequer, have  offeree! to resign if necessai-y, but that  Premier Asquith has refused to consider such a solution of the difficulty.  The report of the committee, acquit-  ting the ministers of corrupt practice,  but charging them with inelescretion,  appear to be a -party verdict only. It  . is a report of the .Liberal majority,  bub not of the whole majority. ' The  Conservative minority has prepared a  report which severely condemns the  conduct of Lhe Atteirnuy-General, the  .Postmaster-General, anel the late  chief whip of the Liberal party, and  sternly criticises the Chancellor of the  Exchequer. Even the Liberal press is  elivided em the que-stiem. The Nation,  a leading Liberal weekly, says: '-The  view of a section of the party is that  Lorel Murray should be repudiated,  that Sir Rufus Isaacs should resign  and that Lloyd George should express  his regrets. As to the future, a good  many Liberals eleclare: that much depends on Lloyd George's speech in the  forthcoming debate in the house. It  is certain that the debate will have a  powerful influence either for good or  ill, on the fortunes of the party."  The silence of the ministers as to  their holdings of American Marconi,  coupled with their elenial of holding  English Marconi, which amounted to  an implied deniid that they were holding any kintl of Marconi share's, can-  nob well be taken in any other light  than a deliberate deception.

A fatal accident occurred at Greenwood on' June llth, when Joe Davidson, C. P. R. agent at Midway, lost an
arm, his wife r-eceiveel fatal injuries,
and his infant child had a very.narrow,
escape. Mr. Davidson anel family were
on their way from Mielway to Greenwood on a gasoline.speeeler, whe*n they
crashed into a locomotive, which was
on its way to the turntable south of
town. Mr. Davidson fell outside the
rails, but his arm was caught beneath
the wheels. Mrs. Davidson was directly in front of the engine, and received
injuries from which she died a few
hours later. The child was thrown
clear of the train, arrd received but a
few bruises.
The Gazette  was in error last wei'k
in stating that the electric shock which
toppled   Jack   Howe   tronr   the   pole
elowrr near the Rodgers residence, was
of 110 voltage,   for it now   turns  out
that it was  twenty times that, eir 2200
volts.   There being a group of a dozen
or  more  transformers  at  the   power
house, tho new electrician,   Mv. Scott,
naturally   concluded    that    the    line
leading elown across the G-.N.R. track
to   the Rodger's  resilience,   hael  been
served   by one  of them,   anel  was  10-
duceel to  110 volts the:  same as all the
other  light lines,   but  instead of  this
the   transformer   for   this   particular
line   was elown   at the  other-end,  anel
the line elown there  was still carrying
its full voltage of 2200.     It was rather
strange  that   the   regular  electrician
hael it that way  without drawing attention   to it,  and it is a  miracle that
the   victim in this  case1 was not killed
instantly  with the shock apart from
the  risk he ran in   this fall   from   the
pole.     As it was   both points  of  contact of the current with his body were j
severely  burned, anel he has a scorch-!
eel hand and  foot as mementos of the
narrow escape which he had.

Leans    Goodchap,     provincial     fire  warden   was in   town Sunday  anel reported that game warden Blurteiii, accompanied  by  another party,   caused  hinr great indignation by entering Iris  home and  demanding  to' .search   the  premises   fora supposed' concealment  of    heaver pelts.       Goodchap   claims  these men   took things   too much into  their  own  hands,  going  through   his  house from top to bottom, turning out  trunks in their endeavor  to locate the  supposed pelts.    The  way these men  used was  not worthy of any officer' of  Ihe   law.     Miss  Haining,   who is Mr.  Gooelennp's  aunt and   housekeeper, is  now under the care of Lire doctor', suffering from  nervous prostration caused by the incident.    Miss Haining was  taken to Penticton by special auto.  The reporter accompanied the carlo  Penticton, so this is an outline- of the  information given him' by Goodchap.

On going down the  valley theygot'track'of the criminal,  whose name was Hatfielel with ninny  aliases, and McGuffie arrested him in  the garelen off Hans Richters, where*  he was working, lie was taken to  the house to enable; him to get a few  clothes. While iir tlie house he start-  ed to talk with Mrs. Richter and at  the same time was gradually edging  towards the front eloor. When he. hael  gotten half way down the hall, lie  ��������� made a dash for- liberty. McGuffie at  this time was hitching up the team,  preparatory to taking the prisoner to  jail. Before* either 'officer 'realized' the*  escape, Hatfielel had got a goenl start.  They immediately gave chase, but he  sought refuge: in senile very thick underbrush, anel by so doing :-evaded  capture up till '.i o'clock Tuesday morning when constable McGuffie and 11.  McCurdy captured him in a. barn on  Thompson's ranch.  A meeting was held' in Kerci'iieos in  May with a view to organizing a  branch of the AVonren's institute.
