The development   work   has   been  kept up nnd at the present time there  is more ore in sight than  when  they  took over the property four and a half  years ago.    With the completion of  tlie new power plant that is now under  construction the work of development  can be curried on  with  much greater  activityahd the work done more cheaply* as they will  then  have abundance  of water' the year round and will not  be obliged to resort to steam during  the winter months'and as a result will  not have, to use coal which makes the  cost per horse power run  pretty high.  With the cheaper* power and the new  Dickson; incline shaft, which.'.will soon  be a factor inmoreeconomicalhoisting,  the cost of mining should be materially  decreased, and the future of the Nickel  Plate as a dividend payer is decidedly  rosy. ���������   '   -" * ���������*"���������-    ~      .'���������'","-'. -    '���������  The   official, announcement   of tlie  dividend is as follows:  HEDLEYGOLDMDyiNG COMPANY  42 Broadway  New York, June 10th, 1014.

V. R.  ACCIDENT ON K.Y.R.  Penticton, June 10^-Mr. M. Feigus-  son, a brakeman fort the K. V. R., had  a very narrow escape on Tuesday  nighrVwhen the caboose car of freight  and grayel train in- which he was  riding, left the rails near'fiheen mile,  west, and hurled1 to "the bottom of the  embankment, a considerable distance  below. f  While railway officials are not certain as to how the .accident occured,  it is thought that s/broken truck must  have sent the car over the bank, just  as the train' was rounding a curve.  Mr. Fergusson, who' was inside the  car at the time suffered a bail crushing  and one very deep cut in his leg. His  condition, however, is not considered  serious and he is now being well cared  for at the Penticton- hospital.  Several laborers who were on the  train at the time also had narrow escapes, but they were able to jump in  time to save themselves from  down with the car.  going  RELIEF FUND FOR  EMPRESS VICTIMS  Subscription Asked Locally for Survivors  and Loved Ones Left Destitute  Washington, June 12.���������Repeal of  Panama Canal tolls exemption for  American coastwise shipping passed  the Senate tonight by a verte of 50 to  35. The menusure now goes hack to the  Hous.e, which is expected to accept  the Simmons-Norr-is amendment,  specifically re-serving all rights ' the  United State's may have under the  Hay-Pauncefote treaty.  The passage of the bill after a biL-  ter struggle that has lasted foi- several  months was regarded tonight as another victory for President Wilson. Although thii teen Republican's came to  the -iiel eif the Democrats who voted  for the bill on final passage, the  President initiated the movement in  his party for repeal, and it was behind hiin that many of the Democrats who voteel "aye" lined up on  the last test.  There has been no certain promise  from the White House that the President will sign the bill with its qualifying amendment, but there has been  no declaration that he will veto, it, and  party leaders in the senate were practically certain that its approval as  amended by the House will lead tithe last favorable action hy the Presi^  dent.  Eleven Democrats, let! by Senator  O'Gorman, fought consistently to the  end/and even an hour before the last  vote was taken they did not abandon  their efforts to amend the bill to  meet their view of the manner in  which American rights in the canal  and American rights to exempt coastwise shipping from toll payment  should be guareled. Although vote after vote'on all sorts of amendments,  passed over by majorities that never  fell below 12, and on one occasion  went as high as 54, the minority  Democrats kept up the fight to the  end.  Communication With Merritt Qyer V. V.  & E. Line Looked for Before Kale  Rail connections between the Okanagan sections of the kettle Valley  railway, now. in course of construction  along the entire route from Midway  to Hope, are expected to be made  within the next three months.  Upon completion of a fifteen mile  link between Carrni anel Penticton  the entire line from Midway toOsprey  Lake will he ready for service. Bridge  building is proceeding briskly south  of Penticton and steel has been laid'to  Osprey lake from which point a section of line is being built to Princeton.  Reports already published of the  progre-s's being made with the other  sections of the Kettle Valley and the  section of the V.

There are also many passengers who have left their dependents  in the same way, '.and many children  are left orphans.  All that mankind can do has been  done, and  nothing more on this earth  can be done for those who have gone,  but it is up to us���������many of us who,  perhaps,  owing to- the merest chance  at: some time or other,  missed a similar fate���������to do all in-our power for  those' who have been left destitute by  this terrible disaster,, just the"same as  we would have hoped to have done for  our own had we met with such a misfortune.  If: it was possible   to   bring   more  vividly before our eyes  the   ghastly  scenes witnessed.at the time,'after-'  wards, and even now, in the neighborhood of the disaster,  or even at the  offices of the company in the big cities,  where  those who had kin  on board  have been  clamoring for news all day  and all night since the disaster,   one  would  feel ready perhaps to give  up  all  they   had for   those   unfortunate  people,  but even without this, every*  body in  the valley- who. is or who has  been in closer touch with the situation  should give liberally to the assistance  of the dependents of those who lost  their lives.  Funds have been opened in all the  hu-ge cities and anyone who is able  and wishes to, in this district, are invited to send their cheques or remittance to either the Canadian Bank of  I Commerce, Penticton, marked Empress fund, or to W.

W. Shatford, M.L.A.,  who returned yesterday from a trip  through his constituency of Similkameen. Mr. Shatford visited the Penticton fruit district, where preparations are being made to handle a large  crop, and he also toured the* Kettle  Valley district, as well as the sectiem  lying south and west of Penticton.  "Mining prospects' in that section of  British Columbia are exceedingly  bright," he said today. "Several properties are being bonded anel considerable outside cipital will be introduced  this season. * The olel Fairview camp,  which contains a large amount of low  grade ore, is showing signs of renewed  activity, and this same development  applies in a greater degree to other-  districts.  '."I found while going through the?  constituency that a great many enquiries had been received about mining properties there, and the fact that  both local capitalists jmd men from  the other side of the line are interesting themselves in prospecting and *  the development of claims, shows that  be up in the afternoon if a game could   tnTs ^ctZ Z.r ��������������� Sh������WS-that  bear-ranged for them.    The day was       T0":  together w,th practically  be arranged for them.   The day was  an ideal one for a game and  quite a  large number   turned out to see it.  There was plenty of loose playing all  through the game but some brilliant  play was also to be seen at times.   Two  pitchers were used  by both  teams as  the players seemed te> have their baiting   eyes    with     them.     Bradshaw  started in the box for Hedley but was  taken out at the end of the second  innings,  Keremeos securing   12 runs  off him before lie was taken out, and  Messenger was substituted and from  that time on the Keremeos boys never  looked   very   dangerous.      M.    Daly  pitched good ball till the third innings  but in  the fourth and fifth he  blew  up and  the locals got to  him for a  number of hits after lie  had passed  three   men and   they   succeeded   in  scoring eleven   runs   before   he was  taken out.   Bob   Hill   went  in and  pitched   an   inning  but   as   he   had  nothing on the  ball  and  no control,  Daly was again rushed to the rescue  and after ihis held the boys down.  The final score was 15 tp 16.  " The teauis lined up as follows:  all the rest of southern British Columbia is about to experience a genuine revival in mining, I believe that  the Similkameen and Kettle Valley  districts .-ire as rich in mineral ores as  any other part of British Columbia,  and that is saying quite a good deal.  "With increased activity with respect the mines and with a large fruit  crop this year. Southern British Columbia will have little to worry over  in regard to any financial depression.  The railway work on the Kettle Valley line is being rushed ahead in order to provide an outlet to the coast-  by the end of the year."  MINE ACCIDENT AT ROSSLAND  Edpf A.

Johnson's body was  badly mangled, Logan was injured  severely about the head and fjice. One  eye is probably -destroyed, but there is  a chance of saving the sight of the  other. Dr. Millar took him to Spokane  Wednesday and placed him under-the  care of an eye specialist.  The men had loaded a round of  holes and spit the fuse, but in the reports that followed they found that  one of the holes failed to go off. They  waited a considerable length of time  and then went back with the expectation of finding a missed hole. Just as  they got back the shot went off. ���������->  ,'.

This clause   would  have  i.-onr-  -,���������"'. pelled the ships.of other countries'.to  "."maintain  the  canal and pay  its -fixed-  ��������� chai ges, while nearly the whole of the  traHic'of the  United" States-shipping  ' is practically'.-ill employed in trade between    American    ports.      President  Woexlrow Wilson   had  not been  long  - in the* office before he 'discovered that  "  it-was tho unanimous opinion   of for-  eign governments that this exemption'-  .-. was a violation of the Hay-Pnuncefnte  Treaty.    The President knew also that  this   Wiis   the   predominant   opinion  ' *  among United States jurists, historians  and journalists.    He������������������ founel  that  the  officials.who were associated with Mr.  Hay in negotiating the treaty believed  that the.contract pledged the  Uniteel  States against discrimination.  In view  ���������������������������'' of this concensus of opinion  the President urged Congress to  repeal the exemption clause.   'Not so much on the  .   merits of the case   but out of  decent  respect for  the. sentienu-nt   of  othe-v  nations the President made his appeal.'  Congress has responded by repealing,  the exemption.'   Theie will be no elis-  criinination.    United States seagoing  traffic will pay the same  price as foreign shipping of thesamocloss.    Coasting vessels of the United States will  pay the same as those of Canada and  Mexico.     It is   true.'  thai   the repeal  iiii'iisiui*   carries  with" it a. preamble  that the United States does not waive  any light of sovereignty, or authority  to discriminate,   that the nation   may  possess.  But this is not material.  Without this proviso the  legislation woulel  be no waiver of anything.    The repeal  measure    could    not    eliiuinish     any  international   .or   treaty    right    that  the United States enjoys, and the proviso does  not strengthen  any  claims  that are* doubtful.    But the statement  in the preamble  may make it  a little  easier for members who   voted for the  discrimination in   the last congress  to  vote against it now.  While this repeal is a. great personal  triumph for the President  it it a  still  greater victory for .Senator Hoot, who  opposed the exemption from the beginning as a. violation of solemn   treaty.  Sir Edward Grey, as head  of the Foreign Affairs Department of Great Britain,-argneel the case in   his diplomatic  protest. At that time Britain proposeel  to submit the   interpretation  of the  treaty  in   his   behalf   to   the   Hague  Tribunal.   President Tuft did not accept this  proposition.    Great   Britain  has quietly awaited the opening of the  canal, when .she would probably have  : A-"veVdict -or"  manslaughter   in   the  case of'tfie Chhiese boy->who killed his  mistress in Vancouver u)ust:havi' filleel  the "community;'', with    .amazement.

There will  be  general agreement that.a   verdict of .murder   would  have   been   mure,   in  accordance-'with  the ree-uireinents of justice, anel  that  the matter of clemency   might  better  have been dealt   with by .the Minister  of .Tustice than by- the -jury.

WOMEN  BEAT MEN  AT  FINDING  BARGAINS  By HOLLAND.  fOMEN spend more money than men, and they  spend it wiser. They not only  buy most of the articles used  in the home, but they also  buy for their children and often for their men folks.  Women also read the advertisements more than men  do. This makes them better*  and safer buyers than men.  They have equipped themselves with the knowledge  that makes them effective.  They know the best stores,  the best merchandise, the  best values: By reading the  advertisements women are'  enabled to shop more economically, to make the money go farther.  ���������  .KNOWLEDGE IS  MONEY,IN  DOING SHOPPING.

New potatoes have already been on  some tables and the Similkameen Valley Fruit Lands Co. expect to be shipping a carload to the AVinnipeg market at early date.  The boys of  up to  Hedley  baseball renown went  last Sunday and beat  the minors. We heard some wierd  reports iu regard to the score and some  weird stunts the boys pulled off.

About five o'clock till  sat down to a splendid feed of things  that especially tsike si little fellows  fancy.  Thos. Cunningham, Provincial Fruit  Inspector, returned Monday from the  Wensitchee district. Mr. Cunningham  reports a medium peach crop for that  district and that our friends across  the border are having considersible  trouble with blight While at Wenatchee he delivered lectures on fruit,  its cultivation and preservation from  pests. The Similkameen Valley is  the only fruit country in B. C, and it  is not going too far to say the only  fruit district on the North American  continent, that up to the present 1ms  been free from fruit pescs of any kind.  Now we s^droit that these dangers are  hot far from home and although proud  of the facts mentioned, it is the duty  of one and all, to help keep our orchards free and clean taking particular  care to notice any danger that at some  future time may arise so that any  disease, no matter how small, could  be nipped in the bud.  On Friday evening the 13th, an  Italian would-be chauffeur pulled out  enroute for Penticton with a new car  and with five or six passengers in it.  To those who saw the driver before he  started he appeared to know very  little about the business; On the trip  he got as far as the Richter Estate  safeiy but on making the turn over  the twin bridges he either lost control  of'his cur or bis head for after rubbing  the^north side of the first bridge he  attempted to recover his bearings  too  quickly and as a result went through  the soul^h  side of the  second   bridge  and dumped car and  passengers  into  the swollen creek.    That  no one  was  drowned or badly hurt is st miracle.  Gorden  Pyne,  who drives Tweddle's  car, and who is a splendid chauffeur,  wiis unjustly blamed by the constable  after the accident .-is if he had boon  the cause of the accident.    This was  without a doubt very  unf.-iir lis  \ye  don't suppose it,is eitlu-r. I*Jy,i-ie's.or, any  other, drivers business  t<> find out if  so and so has a licence or not.   As far  as we can learn there was no effort to  find out if this man had a licence or  not.till sifter he hsid pulled out.    It is  the duty  of every  constable to find  out whether a man has a licence to run  a csir sind especially if he is to curry,  passengers.   Both Welby's sind Tweddle's cars are on the Keremeos stage run  tween this point and Penticton,  and  both their drivers have been very suc-  cesful in their trips sicross the divide.  Both have been on this road years before automobiles came and sire entitled  to the most consideration and support  of the public.   There sue many good  drivers who have crossed  the divide  safely nnd many more  we hope will  do so, but nevertheless  the  drivers" of  these two   automobile   owners have  stuck it day  in n.nd  day out,  ruin  or  shine, passengers or not, for they sue  regular schedule runners-, and we wish  them every success in giving the public  the best services obtainable.  J. A.

These    precautions    sue   not  taken    with   the view to embarrass  trade in  any way, but purely in the  interest of   protecting this Province  from si very destructive   pest which  threatens the potato growing industry  of neighboring states.
