'������������������'*>  v"We are sorely afflicted, and peace  conreth not at our bidding.   "We have  lost cast among, and been excommimi-  cated by the-whist lovers of the .camp,,  unci it is doubtful if we are  ever able  to regain an honorable standing a mong  the"devotees of the game.     The fail  from grace came about by trying to  play a joke among staid and intensely  interested whist players in a recent  game in which we held a hand.   After  the. deal we picked up  the cards and  had a cold chill at discovering that we  were possessed of no card above a nine  spot.    But we had a short suit.* We  realize how   degrading   it  is   to lead  from a sneak, but just for a lark we  slid out*the card.    It was ,just in our  opponents'  nritt.     Fourth hand joyfully nailed the trick with the king and  came gayly back with the ace.     Then  we trumped.    We have seen the effect  of an injudicious remark   at  a   wake '  we have been present at some pretty  warm political    ructions,    we    have  heard the vocal eruption over a fan tan  game, but they were tame in comparison with the clamor over-   that sneak  lead.   Our lady opponent made a casual remark   that  we  did   not exactly  catchl   A friend well up in' Irish,  Es-  quimou and other rare languages said  it was  "Et tu Brute," .whatever  that  means, but to our uneducated ear it  sounded like "Oh, you brute."   It did  rrot wholly break up the party,  but a.  lower  temperature     was    noticeable J  about the premises, arrd for the  balance of the evening we  continued   to  shrivel up under the influence  of   the  stony stare. .-������������������-"���������  Volume II,. part  2   of   Mr. Justice  Martin's Mining and Water Cases of  British Columbia is the latest publication issued by that rioted firm of legal  publisher's,  the Carswell  Co.  Ltd. of  Toronto,  and  we are safe  in saying  that no book issued by them for- some  time will be more eagerly sought after  by the legal fraternity of this province  than this volume.     Neither will  the  interest in its publication  he confined  to the members of the legal profession,  for   the mining   industry  in British  Columbia,  whose .-mineral    resources  form so an importantan asset is bound  to make evei-y  person engaged in  it  interested to a more or less degree  in  the last word given ex cathedra, on the  subject of mining law.   Mr.   Justice  Martin  is   acknowledged    to   be the  highest authority on   mining law  in  this province, arrd in this volume as in  all other's he has published,  erudition  is  not  allowed   to  impair-    lucidity,  which .makes it all the more valuable  for the layman.   The whole work .completed up to date is a most exhaustive  affair for it contains all eases of British  Columbia from earliest time up to the  end of 1907.   And in dealing also with  all the water cases under and before  the passing of the Water Clauses Consolidation Act,    a matter of equally  wide if not wider moment than that  of mining itself will be found to exist.  Mr. Justice Martin has placed the province under obligation to him for the  compilation of these excellent volumes.   aa.  Subscribe for The Hedley Gazette.  Its situation across the Siniilkameen  river, which has heretofore nrade it  difficult of access from Hedley, and  the fact'that development work has  only been carried on at intervals during the past two or three years, has  prevented the Gazette from making a  visit to. the Pollock group of mines up  to this time. Last week, however,  taking advantage of the ice on the  river and the work now in progress, a  trip to the property was made on  Thursday, in company with Mr. J: D.  Brass; and the showings to be seen  were such as to amply repay the strerr-  uousness of a February climb up a  stiff piece of mountain.  The Pollock group is situated across  the river on the watershed between  Stirling creek and Henry creek, and is'  reached at present by crossing the  river at G. B. "Lyon's ranch, from  which a trail runs up the river along  the face of the steep mountain side to  the mouth of and crossing Henry creek  and begins switch-backing the mountain beyond until a certain elevation is  gained, after which it winds back into  the basin of Henry creek for the rest  of the way.  ' The group consists of five claims, the  principal ones being the Martin and  the Maple Leaf, although the Daisy  fraction and Pine Knot fraction cover  important ground between, and lower-  down in the basin of Henry creek is  the Minnehaha which is well timbered  and rounds out the group.    ���������  The ownership is vested in the Pollock Mines, Limited, a company which  was formed in 1905 and incorporated  under the Companies Act. The capitalization is 1,000,000 shares at $1 per-  share, and of this 500,000 shares were  set aside for treasury, and there are  410,000 shares of treasury stock still  unsold. The company also owns the  Mound and Copper Cliff, on Nickel  Plate mountain. The officers of the  company are: President, H. C. Pollock,  secretary, C. E. Oliver, arid directors,  E. A. C. Studd, J. E. Gladden and H.  W. Yates. The claims were all located  by H. C. Pollock in 1900. -  A feature which strikes one is the  considerable amount   of  exploratory  Avork done and the good results which  have been obtained.   On  the Martin  where the work  has been carried on  this winter are   seven   openings,   all  proving the existence of a. good strong-  looking  lead with  a strike of about  north 25 degrees  east and a   clip of  about 40 degrees westward, although  in   both  shafts  it  is seen that the dip  changes and the vein  straightens  up  very much.   On this vein two shafts  have been sunk,  one (50 feet deep and  the other about 55  feet deep,  out of  which  two good dumps of ore have  been taken.    During the present winter- two  tunnels  have  been run in on  this vein.    One which has been driven  a little over 50 feet cut  the  vein at  about 35 feet,  and" on cutting across  the vein'to the hanging wall showed a  width of 14 feet of ore,  which  is free  milling and  parrs   well   all   the way  quite deep all over the Martin  claim,  making prospecting mjire difficult) was  in about GOfeetand at the top of  the  tunnel was just breaking'through the  foot-wall of the vein.   This tunnel like  the other will be-driven across the vein  arrd tho hanging wall cut, so as to determine its width and the character- of  the ground beyond  the. hanging wall.  This will  enable   comparisons .to-'-be  made  and'' deductions  to  be   drawn.  'Still another cutting was being made  farther- south  for the vein Avhich will  in all probability be driven to intersect  before work is stopped ; and by means  "of this, sufficient data Avill have  been  obtained to permit -'summing up with  reasonable accuracy   the   extent and  value of the known portion of the vein  on   this  claim.     As for values,   they  have been found on extensive assaying  both from  tunnels and shafts  to be  very satisfactory,   going more often  above $50 per ton than below $20, and  PROVINCIAL  S  Long Debate Over Estimates  ��������� Oliver Is Chief  Critic.  SIMILKAMEEK  TO' TIIE  FORE  The General Maintenance .Vote Together  With Special Votes and the Supple-  meritaries, Brings Similkameen's  Share Higher Than Ever.    ,^  what is more encouraging still in the  case of a free-milling property, it pans  Avell all over. This is a feature Avhich  will always appeal to the mill-man ;  for as a rule where the gold is not to  he found readily in the* pan it is not  likely to show up in paying quantities  in the batteries or on the plates.  On the Maple Leaf about 500 feet  higher up the mountain are two parallel, veins, the strike of.each of which is  much the same as that on the Martin  and horizontally about 1,300 feet west  of the Martin vein. The lower and  smaller- of these tAvo has been opened  in five places and is lying much flatter  than the Martin although its dip like  that on the Martin is also to the west.  The character of the ore is much the  same and the values likewise, although  it would possibly yield a bigger percentage of concentrates for the arseno-  pyrite appeared more in evidence.  One of the five openings is a tunnel 45  feet in on the vein.  On the upper vein of the Maple Leaf  there sire seventeen openings along" a  distance of about 500 feet .all shoAving  a strong lea'd with strike almost north  and south and dip 40 degrees to the  Avest.   There is less  wash on the surface, and exposures of the vein  could  be more easily made.   Here, as on the  Martin, the vein appears to he a fissure  in  the  rnonzonite,  the .hanging Avail  showing in all the cuttings being Avell  defined, and in some of them the Avidth  of vein showed 20 feet.   Here the best  values are on the hanging Avail.   From  this point the stamp-mill of the Daly  Reduction Co. at Hedley is in plain  view  and the rumble of the stamps  could be distinctly heard.  , A comfortable cabin has been built  on the-Pine Knot fraction, close beside  Henry creek," which can accommodate  a small Avorking force, and this Avinter  the force which has driven in over 100  ft. of tunnel is Messrs. Pollock, Oliver,  Gladden and Yates, all of them directors of the company, so it Avill be seen  that all the.  board are live  members  Avith no guinea-pig element in it.  And  when one notes the great amount of  development   work   which   has   been  done,  and quantity and value of ore  exposed, Avith the treasury stock still  almost intact, the outlook appears particularly  bright, especially when the  advantages are summed up.  When we speak of advantages it Avill  only be necessary to enumerate a. few  The reA'enuc of the province for the  nine months ending March 31st, 1909,  is estimated by the Finance Minister-  in his statement brought down last  Aveek in the Legislature, at $3,143,27(5.-  00. The estimated expenditure for the  same period i.s $3,002,311.56. This takes  no account of the sum which probablj-  Avill be set, aside for the superannuation fund under the new Civil Service  Act--$200,000.  .The statement brought down is only  for nine "months, owing to the change  which has been made in the fiscal year.  After the present fiscal year-, which  ends June 30th, 1908, the fiscal year  Avill he the same as that of the Dominion. It Avill end March 31st of each  ensuing year. '.������������������*>  For civil government, salaries, etc.,  $249,960 is^ estimated to be required.  The total amount for a year ou this  basis Avould be $333,280, as compared  with $240,442 for the previous fiscal  year.  A number of additional clerks have  been appointed in the various land registry offices and elsewhere. Some increases in salaries are also provided for.  The increase of $400 a-yeai; in the  members' sessional indemnities  amounts in all to $16,800.  ; An increase of $1,000 is provided for  in the Premier's annual alloAA'ance,  while the salaries of ministers are increased from $4,000 to $5,000 per- year.

The ore is a white quartz very  friable and slightly mineralized with  pyrite, ar-senopyrite and ziucbleude,  the ar-senopyrite predominating. On  both foot and hanging walls is the  marked selvage or gouge of the true  fissure, which in this case seems to be  cutting the rnonzonite eruptive so well  knoAvn in Camp Hedley from its frequent occurrence, especially on the  Kingston where in the early days of  the camp it used to be referred to as  the Kingston granite to distinguish it  from the granite more commonly met  with. The other tunnel farther north  Avhich had to go through a greater  depth of wash (and here the wash is  steep hillside lends itself admirably to  tunnelling ; the ground is easily work-  ed,  making  it possible   to   prosecute  development work and ore extraction  with hand steel without the necessity  of power-drills  until harder ground is  encountered at lower levels,   by which  time the property should turn out bullion  far over  to equip itself.    At the  foot of the mountain is the located line  of the V. V. &.E.,  and an aerial tram  of not over- half a mile could land the  ore into a mill down on the river along  side  the  railway tracks.     In  Henry  creek there  is  water enough the year  round to supply the  batteries without  any expensive   ft inning   or   pumping  from the river; and for fuel, coal could  be dumped into a bin at the  mill from  the railway  cars.     All expenses   for  haulage of machinery to instal a mill  or to ship off concentrates-would  be  cut out,  for it Avould be simply a, matter of putting off and on the   cars.  Then in operation of a mill the friable  character of the ore should increase  the duty per stamp of a mill to a very  Albemi District.  Atlin *��������� .  Cariboo " .  Chilli wack   " .

For  fully a decade mining has been  side-tracked by  investors   who  seemed  to-prefer   almost any  other   kind   of   investment   to  that  of   putting   their   money  into   a   ruining   venture.  ' The,  boom   of   18QG-7-8. proved .the  grave for large suiris of money  paid out for mining  stocks   by  people who   knew   nothing   of  mining and  were thus unable,  for lack of knowledge,  to  protect themselves from losses that  under,     other      circumstances  would   have    been    avoidable.  These wholesale losses,   not - so  much' of investors' capital as of  the  hoarded   savings  of those  who   were  less able   to bear a  loss, gave legitimate mining  a  bad   back-set   and   created   an  undeserved   prejudice    against  "the mining industry it-self that  Avas \-ery wide-spread.     In fact  a feeling of resentment.and   of  blame  towards    this    province  was felt in the east.    So  much  so was  this that an influential  paper  like   the Toronto  Globe  voiced it   by   exhibiting   petu-  it is bound to do, it is hoped; it  ..will, be'on a sounder and   saner  basis than  that, characterizing  the boom of the middle nineties.;  And   here.a   word  for  B.C.  capitalists    themselves    Avould'  not' come- amiss.    The  nionied  men in the  centres  of popuhi-'  "tion in British   Columbia   have  never yet gone into mining in-  vestmeritfcin earnest, either here  or elsewhere.     Any    dabbling  which they  did   in  mining  investment .was only tentative, at  -best;  but  this   was  riot'so of  Spokane and the nearer American centres of population.    Spokane was largely built up from  the wealth and trade of British  Columbia- mines,  and  Spokane  capitalists  are   more  ready  to  listen to a  mining proposition  in  southern   British   Columbia  than  are, the   nionied men  of  Vancouver or Victoria.  ���������The first thing the public require to learn concerning  rain  ing is  that all  mineral, claims  are not mines, and that only a  small percentage of them  ever  do make mines; but that  does j ?'*esin  not gainsay the  assertion  that  more of them would have-made,  mines had  they  not been,  for  one cause or another, spoiled in  the making.    It is perhaps from  these spoiled claims, as much as  from'those   wholly imexploited  or those  already  on  a  paying  basis that capital judiciously in-  Arested. is likely to reap  its best i  returns.     The  next' thing  for  them to remember  is  that  the  same horse sense must be'exercised in mining as in any other  business.    When the people   of  British Columbia and of eastern  Canada   come   to   look at  the  mining industry in British Columbia in that way, then Avill we  see  the  genuine  re-awakening  of interest in British Columbia  mines.

The Maddening: Cow Itch.  "There is no vicious growth in Af-  . rica or the Avorld," writes a traveler,'  "to compare with the detestable thing*  popularly called 'cow itch' and known'  to botanists as the mucuna bean. This  Is a plant having small seed pods covered with a close array of fine, silky. ,  hairs, which, when shaken loose, fasten in myriads upon the unconscious  wayfarer and, reaching all parts of the  Bkin, set up an irritation which words  are literally powerless to describe. A'  man attacked by this abominable pest  gives Avay for the time to absolute  frenzy. * * * If a precipice Avere at  hand he might almost be forgiven for  Jumping over it, so Avholly unendurable Is that burning, pricking, clinging  Itch."

There is one impartial critic of advertising; He never passes judgment  upon publicity from the standpoint of  grammar or art. He considers all the  difficulties of advertiser, medium and  readers in giving his A-erdict. What he  says is final, and every one of his conclusions is valuable in making futuro  nils, more productive. He is a true expert.    His name is Results.  The Modern  Prophet.  "Have Ave any modern prophets, pa**  pa ?"  "Certainly! There's the promoter. Ho  can foretell more good things than did  the Avhole bunch of the prophets with  n record."
