Hawthornthwaite, ' Nanaimo, commenced proceedings this afternoon by  moving that his bill to a mend the  Provincial Elections Act bo placed  upon tho orders of the day:  This revival of the presumably deceased, caused a pretty warm debate.  Scarcely a member is in favor of the  reduction of the deposit to $50, but  many on both sides of the House favor  the amendment of Bowser, Vancouver,  to reduce it to $100.  The Attorney-General introduced a  bill entitled "An Act to Amend the  County Courts Act," which passed its  first reading.  The Hon. It. F. Green introduced an  act entitled "An Act to Amend the  British Columbia Land Surveyors'  Act., 1905," which also passed the first  reading.  The House then went into Committee on the Timber Act; the Hon. B. F.  Green proposing that the Act should  only apply west-of the Cascades.  Oliver, Delta, yearned to know why  the Chief Commissioner proposed to  make this invidious distinction.  The Hon. R. F. Green patiently explained that the amendment was so  framed to prohibit the export of unmanufactured timber to the United  States in.that section of the province  where it could be done, and at the  same time leave unhampered, in the  upper country, the export to the  Northwest Territories which it was  not proposed to interfere with.  Wells, Palliser, supported the Chief  Commissioner's amendment, and Patterson, Islands, opposed it.  The amendment finally passed and  the bill was reported complete.  The House then went into Committee on tho Act to amend the Land  Act, and the discussion on this took  up most of the afternoon, several  amendments being introduced and  lengthy debat������vwtstrmg.  The hand-loggers came up again in  this connection, Hon. R. F. Green proposing an amendment allowing them  to use cattle or horses, but not steam.  H. F. Garden's amendment, provid  irig for the retention for public use of  one chain's width on shore-front land,  was carried.  An important amendment was that  introduced by Bowser, Vancouver,  dealing with the present exemption  from taxation of timber cut on lands  under royalty.  In the adjourned debate on tho  Smelter Bill, Evans, Cowichan, spoke  strongly against it. The debate was  again adjourned on motion of Mr.  Bowser. Mr. Evans' speech made an  excellent impression, as he represents  a smelter district.  The following bills passed their third  reading :  "An Act to Incorporate the Southern Okanagan Railway Company."  "An Act respecting the British Columbia. Northern and Mackenzie Valley  Railway Company."  "An Act to. Incorporate the St.  Mary's and Cherry Creek Railway Co.'  The Act to amend "The Granby  Consolidated Mining, Smelting and  Power Co. Act, 1001," passed its second  reading'.    This is a measure authoriz  Licensing Court.  A special meeting of the Nicola Licensing'Court was holt! in the Government Office, Princeton, on Saturday  last, when three applications'for new  hotel licences in Otter Valley were up  -for consideration.  The, commissioners resident iu the  western portion of the district as well  a^s the Chief License Inspector, wished  to have-the matter dealt with by a full  board, and consequently all the members made an effort to be present.  The first to apply was D. Cameron,  who came from Grand Forks with the  V. V. ������te E. surveyors and cooked most  of the fall and winter with the survey j  camp.

Mr. Myivn had also in the  past been forced to afford accommodation to travellers who wore benighted and often broke, and he considered that if other licences were  granted he might as .well have the  benefit as others.  While the Board were disposed to  concede the reasonableness of the positions taken by Messrs. Thynne and  Myren, they had also to consider a  written request,from the Attorney-  General to grant no more licences  along the line of railway construction,  as such houses, were responsible for  most of the trouble which occurred,  to the danger and annoyance of the  general public, with attende-nt direct  loss both to contractors and the Government as the cost of policing the  district would be increased to a point-  beyond any pecuniary benefit derived  from the licences.  With this wish communicated to  them the members of the Board felt  that it was up to the applicants to  show some very exceptional reasons  why the licence should be granted in  the face of this, and as such reasons  were not forthcoming the applications  were  all   refused   and   no   licences  granted.  It also came out very plainly in the  hearing that public sentiment in the  valley and at outlying points more or  less directly interested, was opposed  to the granting of licences and showed  tlieir opposition by counter-petitions.  All things taken together made the  course of the Board reasonably plain  in the premises, and they were unanimous in the view that no licences  should be granted.  It is hoped that parties will take this  as establishing a precedent so far as  the present Board are concerned, and  that no others will go to any expense  fitting up houses for which they will  have no reason to expect that licences  will be granted them.

The Hedley Lumber Company have  a fine stock of logs banked between  here and Princeton \vhicb will be  watered as soon as the new store  booms are got in readiness, and the.  water is high enough to send them  along*. They also have camps logging  above Princeton on tho Tulamcen,  and the season's cut is expected to be  considerably larger than that of any  preceding.  ecuted continuously and has reached  a stage sufficiently advanced to permit  of reasonably gauging- time of arrival.  At Midway a great deal of work had  to be done in preparing the very large  yard-room required, but the large 80-  ton steam shovel which was brought  in there made short -work of that as  well as of various heavy cuts on the  line a few miles west of Midway before  it was taken away to do duty on some  other portion of the Great Northern  system.  About six miles west of Midway the  first very difficult work was encountered in the Myers' Creek Canyon,  where one tunnel 800 feet long was  encountered. Thus far thev have been  working this tunnel from only one  end and have got in something over  800 feet, but they are now working  from both ends and more rapid progress will be made. To get this tunnel  out of the way of the track-laying  machine which they are anxious to  start out from Midway oh the first of  May, is at present the problem requiring the first consideration. Other  smaller tunnels were encountered between there and Molson but some of  thtj.se, have been finished. Much work  also had to be done on both sides of  Myers' Creek Valley, including a long,  high semi-circular trestle which takes  the road across the valley and approaching to within twenty feet of the  American boundary before the curve  twists round to lead the track northward again for the basin of Rock  Creek.  There is also heavy work along the  south bank of Rock Creek, but good  progress has been -made with this all  winter and it will be out of the way as  soon as the tunnel is completed.  Several bridges between Myers'  Creek and Molson will delay track-  laying as the upper structure of these  bridges is rarely put on until brought  upon the track. Each of these bridges  will in all probability hold up the  track-laying for a week, but most  likely the ballasting will be kept well  up so.as to permit of traffic as soon as  possible after the trains arrive, and  after the track is ballasted to Molson,  that will likely be the terminus for a  few weeks; for the bridging of tho  Okanagan and Similkaineen at Oroville will take too long to warrant  them in holding Midway as the terminus until trains can run into Oroville.  With exception of the bridges at  Oroville there is little between Molson  and Oroville to delay, for that portion  of the work is now well on the way to  completion.  On this side of the line work is progressing satisfactorily and is exceptionally easy, except a couple of  bridges over the Similkameen.  Early spring will see the route between Keremeos and Hedley well  covered with workmen. The only  thing that may occasion any delay in  this will be the condition of the roads.  As the material for it must be teamed  both from Midway and Penticton, it  is easy to understand how the extra  strain of heavy traffic iu the.spring of  the year may put the roads in such  shape that- it will be very difficult to  get supplies in a.s soon as they may be  required.  An event which excited keen and  popular interest occurred on Saturday  evening at "The Firs" the lcsidence of  Mr. S. L. Smith, when Mr. T. H. Dick  enson, one of the popular young men  of the town was united in marriage  with Miss Rebecca G. Loundes, also  deservedly popular. The wedding  was very quiet and seemly,' an added  charm being given to the event in the  absence of ostentation, for the ceremony was performed only in the presence of the members of Mr. Smith's  family, with whom the bride had for  several years been on terms of most  intimate friendship.  The bridesmaids were Misses Gertrude and Marjorie Smith, who were  dressed in white Swiss muslin, and  the bride who was diessed most becomingly in ivory silk, was given  away by Mr. S. L. Smith. The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev  Louis Thomas.  The. occasion had a double ��������� interest  in that it was not only a wedding  party but a birthday party as well, the  date being the ninth birthday'of little  Marjorie JSmith, the younger of the  bridesmaids, and at the dainty wed--  ding supper which followed, there was  both a wedding-cake and a birth-day  cake, iequiring the attention of bride  and bridesmaid. A very pleasant  evening was spent in the family-circle, .  after which the happy couple repaired  to their residence on Daly   Ave.  An evidence of tho*popularity of  the bride and groom was >een in the  fact that although no invitations had  been extended, their friends did not  forget them, and many handsome  presents were sent as tokens of good  will.  Some Reports.  It is reported on good authority that  an offer of $5,000,000 has been made  and refused for the Nickel Plate mine-  at Hedley. M. K. Hodgers, the former manager aiid expert of the Daly  Reduction Co., who developed and  proved the worth of tin- Nickel Plate,  is at the head of the syndicate making  the proposition. Mr. .Hodgers is now  in New York and will shortly return  to Hedley to look after his interests.  among which is the land acquired from  the Indians for-smelter purposes and  and which is held in his own name for  those purposes. It is not improbable .'  that Mr. Rodgers -may, if the Nickel  Plate deal fails, organize a powerful  mining and smelting company. There  are other Nickelv Plates and no one is  more fully aware of the fact than Mr.  Rodgers.���������Similkameen Star of February 24th, 1900.  The beginning of work on the projected smelter to be erected for the  Daly Reduction Co. settles many idle  rumors regarding the final disposition  of the Indian reserve acquired for that  purpose. Excavation work has been  commenced for the foundations and a  survey made eight.-miles up the Similkameen river for a ditch to tap that  never failing source of water supply.  The water from this ditch is for smelter  purposes solely and will be planned  for twelve furnaces and will blow in  with nine, complete in every detail  with all the labor saving devices, including automatic feed, for the profitable and scientific treatment of all  kinds of ore.���������Similknineen Star of  September 28rd.

They  have had the plant in operation for  some time and expect to have beer  ready for market within the next few  days.  The Maple Leaf Club dance in Fraternity Hall on Wednesday evening  of last week was no exception to those  preceding and must be numbered with  the successful events of the season.  Over fifty guests wen; present. Musi*  was supplied by Mr. Hill (violin) and  Mrs. W. H. Smith (piano) and was  highly satisfactory to the dancers.  A light repast was served in the hail-  before midnight and as dancing began  early in the evening the affair broke  up at 1.30 a.m.  The remaining dance of the season  will be the Masquerade Ball, to be  hold on March lGth, for which so many  are now making preparations in choos-  and completing their costumes, and at  which several valuable prizes are to  bo awarded.

Hedley has a decided  grievance in the same direction  but perhaps not so great.as that j assures electors of Great Britain  of Armstrong, which has now  for fully fifteen years had "a  local iia.bita.tion and a name,"  everywhere except on the map  of British Columbia.

Chamberlain is  lighting the battle of the colonies and  it is pleasing  to note  that in  Canada  to-day events  are  progressing  to  show  that  before long both political parties  on this  side  will   be outspoken  in  favor  of  his policy  and the ill effects of, Sir Wilfrid  Laurier's nonsensical utterances  in London on the trade question  nine years ago, will have passed  away.    Already.prominent leaders--in-the   Liberal party  hi  Canada have appeared on platforms and boldly and unreservedly espoused the cause which  Chambealain is fighting to-day  ���������that of British tariff reform  and  Colonial preference.     The  only   discordant   voice   to   be  heard,  in fact,  is  that of Joe  Martin, who wrote a  letter to  the London Chronicle.-in which  he made some astounding state-:  nients, and none more so than  i his representation  that in  opposing   Mr.   Chamberlain's  scheme he spoke for Western  ; Canada.   He spoke apparently  j for   none  but himself,, and if  j British, electors  knew him as  'well as Canadians do and under-  {stood that he is a political out-  ! cast, disci-edited  alike by both  | parties, they would attach the  amount   of  importance  to  his  utterances which they deserve,  and that is nil.   In the letter, lie  I told   British   electors  that the  ' tendency of Protection was to  j lower   the   moral  tone  of the  country and that such had actually occurred   every   place it  had been tried.    By this it is to  jbe inferred  that  he has   been  j making diligent search to  dis-  i cover some  reason to  for his own perversity of nature  and has been  compelled to go  very far afield, indeed, to  find  same.  when  he   blames   it   on  Protection..

The Hedley bachelors gave a dance  in Fraternity Hall on Tuesday evening  for which invitations had been sent  out, and a number of guests canie.from  a distance. Among those were Mrs.  Lowe and Miss Lowe, Mrs. Kirby and  Miss Violet Kirby from Keremeos.  Being the evening before Ash Wednesday, it was the last of the pre-  1ehten functions. The hall was comfortably filled, Hedley and the Nickel  Plate being well represented and a  good time was spent.  The Hedley Rifle Association will  meet on Monday evening,  March ,5th  Horse-Shoeing and all kinds  of Blacksmithing done.    :    :  at S p; in. in Boeing's Billiard Hall.  ��������� The secretary in calling the meeting  says: "At the request of a. number of  the members of the Hedley Rifle Association, a general meeting has been  called for Monday, March 5th at 8 p.  in. in. Boeing's billiard hall, principal  business being the securing of new  members, and arranging tor the first  match of the season. Please endeavor  to bring one or more applications for  membership with you, otherwise they  may be too late to participate in the  coming match."  Harry Swan who has been .superintending the erection of the Nelson  Brewing Company's big brewery in  Princeton came'down on Sunday to  take charge of the now mill building  and houses for the Hedley Lumber Co,  on which work'cominencod on Monday last. The new location i.s said to  lend itself admirably to the plans  which are proposed, and advantage  will be taken of the low water to complete piling, cribbing and deepening  (if the channel from the main river  into the pocket.  The soft weather of the past few  weeks has not improved the roads,  which in places are cut into rather  deep ruts. Another feature that is  both annoying and dangerous is the  presence in the roadway of numerous  big boulders which ha.ve become loosened and rolled down into the roadbed  from the banks above. It may have  been the policy in former seasons to  wait until the frost is out and the  ground has commenced to dry up before attempting repairs, but the amount of work required to get these  boulders out. of the way would be only  a. matter of a few days with a couple  of men and should be done before some  serious injury results.  Mr. J. H; Kennedy, Chiof Engineer  of the V. V. & E. came in on; Monday  evening, accompanied by Major Anderson, right of way agent.^ On Tuesday  morning they drove to Princeton,  where Mr. Kennedy had to consult  with Mi'.. Baldwin, the engineer in  charge of the survey gangs. Mr. Kennedy is, on the whole, well satisfied  with the progress being made on the  grades west"of Midway, but still complains of shortage of men, a drawback  from which he sees 110 immediate relief as the amount of work in progress  all over the country in railroad building is greater than atany former time.  The class of labor too which had been  sent in was very poor, the men being  ill-clad and unable to stand the cold  and snow. Mr. Kennedy expected'to  return in time to get the Boundary  stage, over from Keremeos to-morrow.  J. H. Bromley is making extensive  improvements to his house hear the  mouth of Wolf Creek, which will add  much to its comfort and convenience.  With the amount of travel which all  are expecting this year, the.'ranchers  who have accommodated the public  by giving them' food and shelter,- will  have their hospitality further taxed,  Louis Hedlund sold the two lots and  cabin across the creek which he had  advertised for sale, in a very short  time after the paper came out last  week. The purchasers were W. H.  Smith and his partners, Daniels and  McLeocl... They certainly got a snap,  as they dropped into an investment  at present paying GO per cent, per  annum, the interest-payable monthly  in advance, to say nothing of the increase in value of the property, which  may readily be placed now at several  hundred per cent, more than the price  paid. Who says Hedley hasn't something worth while to offer to the investing public ?  The Spokane Drilling Co. . have  brought in their'second diamond drill  and have already started up the.hill  to begin work on their contract with  the Yale Mining Company on the.  Nickel Plate.

Commencing by remarking that he could  'not allow the attacks made on the  Minister of Education by the member  for Delta, he gave Mi- John Oliver a  dressing down which convulsed the  house with laughter, and reduced the  Delta person to the verge of frenzy.  He exposed the private campaign  which that gentleman had been running in his own constituency, by means  of meetings and circulars, against the  Education Bill, and proved by official  figures that, while the total revenue  from all sources paid into the provin-  oial treasury barely exceeded .$6,000  for the same period, or $17,000 in one  public branch alone, in excess of what  she paid from all sources.
