London, Feb. 2-1.���������Writing' to the  Times in regard to Mr. Asquith's  pledges in his Albert Hall speech respecting the, veto of; .the House of  Lords qn legislation, Joseph Martin expressed the' opinion that "Asquith and  this government have repudiated that  pledge and that every Liberal member elected to parliament is released  from allegiance to Asquith and his colleagues. They should act, he says, to  put the Liberal party right with its  supp'ortars' and country, and for this  purpose, Mr. Martin says, it would  seem to be necessary to repudiate, our  present party leaders.

You must  see the speaker of the house."  ��������� Mr. Martin replied; "Why should I  see the speaker. I have brought the  question to your notice in .the usual  way."      .'.

WIRELESS FOR STEAMERS  Vessels Building for G. T. P.   Will Have  United   Wireless Apparatus.  The first operation in the Hedley  General Hospital was that performed  on Wednesday of last week when it  became necessary to resort to skin-  grafting to heal the severe burn received by'Dorothy Meausette, the  little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Meausette, of Keremeos, of which mention  was made in the Gazette when it occurred some three weeks ago. Rev.  Mr. Kinney was the Antonio of the  occasion and contributed the amount  of cuticle and cutis vera required,  which in this case had to be a generous'quantity for the wound which had  to be covered with the new skin was  about four inches wide and ten inches  long.  The doctor was assisted irr tho operation by Miss Bond, the new matron,  <-i.nd everything appears to have gone  most satisfactorily,as the little patient,  notwithstanding the severe suffering  she has had during the past three  weeks, as well as in the operation  itself, is doing nicely and making a  satisfactory recovery. Mr. Kinney  was also but little the worse for the  ordeal, as he was around next day  with no outward evidenee of the event  other than that of a slight limp, the  skin having been taken from his thigh.  The directors of the Hedley Gold  Mining Co. last week at the head  office of the company irr New r.York  declared the second quarterly dividend  since they took hold   of   the  Nickel  Plate mine in the  middle ol* August  last.  This record in spite of the handicaps under, which the mine has been  working from insufficient equipment  and lack of proper power is quite unexpected and shows not only the capabilities of the property which none  here had any occasion to doubt but  also the efficiency of the local management and staff.  The lack of proper equipment coupled with the unusual severity of the  winter has made it a difficult task to  keep going���������a task that was made  more difficult because of the unnecessary waste of water early last fall on  the part of the former manager who  was allowed to continue just about  two months too long.  With this splendid showing in the  face of these disadvantages and before  a change could be effected to recover  the serious losses in the tailings that  have gone on constantly since the  property was first operated, some idea  of the handsome profits that are in  store for thecompauy may be obtained.  Already a rrew plant is being installed to prosecute mine development on  ascale more worthy the property, and  additional machinery for the .mill is  being ordered to effect the saving of  losses in the tailings. This will consist for the most part irr the introduction of tube mills to regrind the tailings and filter presses for the better  treatment of the slimes. Before  another winter- also provision will be  made for power that will obviate the  necessity for any further shutdowns.  Vancouver, Feb. 2o.��������� The engineers  in charge of the construction of the V.  V. & E.  over    the   Hope' mountains  state that work   was started   west of  Princeton.   Stewart Si.

Opposite New Post OfHco  p. o, box m  Vancouver, - - B. C.  Contracts have been closed for equipping the two new steamships of the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway, with  United Wireless Telegraph instruments. Manager of Telegraphs A. B.  Smith of the railroad has ordered two  kilowatt sets for the steamships Prince  Rupert and Prince George when the  latter is completed.  The Prince Rupert will have the apparatus installed before sailing from  England for Vancouver. In addition  to the regular electric equipment, the  boat will be fitted with auxiliary storage batteries, so that in case the ship's  power plant becomes disabled the vessel will be able to communicate with  sorrre shore station or some other boat.  The Prince George will be built in  England for the Pacific Coast trade,  and will have similar wireless apparatus as that on the Prince Rupert.  5000 Facts About Canada.  The public: will warmly welcome the  rrew 1910 Edition of that indispensable  booklet "5000 Facts About   Canada,"  compiled    by    Frank    Yeigh,    whose  writings and lectures  on  Canada  are  widely known.    The popularity of the  publication  is   shown   by its sale of  nearly 50,000 copies, not only in Canada, but through the Empire and indeed  the world.    The 1910 Edition contains  a large percentage of now  matter under such heads as���������agriculture, mining  banking, trade, railways, wheat-growing, education, religions, etc., while a  new feature is  a.  budget of   Empire  Facts.    The book is a. revelation of the  riches ami resources  of the Dominion.  It is published by the Conadian  Facts  Publishing   Co.,   007   Spadina    Ave.,  Toronto, Canada, or may be had from  Newsdealers.  The revolutionists have beerr  worsted in another battle in Nicaragua.  Riots attend the Pennsylvania steel  strike and pitched battles are the order of the day.  Canadian vessels are not allowed to  use the canals of New York state.  British Parliament is in session and  Asquith is having the time of "his life  keeping warring elements  in  control.  China has designs orr Thibet and is  encroaching orr the domain of the  Lamas.  The Prenjier of Egypt has been shot  by a representative of the Nationalist  faction.  Great Britain has had a four days'  storm accompanied by earthquake  shock.  Peary has been asked to prove that  he has been at the North Pole to a  commission of retired officers of the  army and navy, among whom is Admiral Schley.  After hundreds of dogs horses and  cattle have been destroyed in Ontario,  expert opinion is being quoted that it  is not rabies but distemper which is  prevalent in parts of that province.  Avalanches in Idaho caused serious  loss of life this week.  The Monroe bridge in Spokane has  been wrecked. One hundred feet of it  has gone into the river.  The railway bills have been hr-ouerht  down in the B. C. Legislature and  they mean business. Both roads have  to use despatch in building. The Kettle Valley must build 25 miles in 1910.  "Gone are the forests piimeval", not  merely in the storied d and Pie valley  but thoroughout the rest of the province of Nova Scotia as well: but that  province has still valuable forests left  and has deter mined to take measures  for- their proper use and conservation.  With this end in view, the provincial  authorities during the past summer  (1909) began to "take stock" of their  remaining forests and inaugurated a  survey of their forests and other crown  lands. Nova Scotia is thus the leader  among the provinces of the Dominion  in making inventory of its forest  wealth.  Dr. E. B. Fernow. dean of the Faculty of Forestry , of the University of  Toronto, was given charge of the survey. Dr. Fernow is one of the pioneers of forestry in America, having  beerr prominently connected with the  forestry movement since forestry began to lie thought of on this continent.  Associated with him were the Chief  Fire Warden of the province and several trained foresters. Only a rough  survey, or "reconnaisance", was "attempted.  So far the southwestern part of the  province, from Hants county westward has been surveyed. The total  area covered is about S500 square  miles. The cost of the survey has  been surprisingly low, averaging less  than twenty cents per square mile.  In the survey each   member of the  party was given a certain district and  was left to his own discretion as to his  method of accomplishing the work in  hand.    Where practical and advisable,  records   already    m    existence   were  utilized,   with a view   of saving  time  and expense, as was  also information  secured from reliable and well informed persons having  knowledge of certain  districts.    The  fieldwork  consisted  largely in  checking this information,   the study of forest types,   etc.  This  information   was plotted in   the  field directly on maps (on the scale of  two  inches  to the   mile).     On  these  were  rioted such  points as the extent  of the  burned areas,   the degree   of    ���������  cutting  on   cut-over  areas,   the  composition of the forest, the condition of  the  young growth or "reproduction",  and   the   character   of   the   farming-  lands, meadows, etc.  within the farming country.  Dr. Fernow is hopeful as to the future of the forest.    He writes:  "Although the data on reproduction  and rate  of growth   are. not  yet collated, it is  safe to say that,   if  the fires  are kept out (and apparently with the  present organization   still further perfected  this  can   he   done   reasonably  well)  there is no difficulty in restocking by natural means  most of the cut-  over  areas, if not too severely culled.  In the pure hemlock-spruce stands all  that is  necessary is to remove the old  hemlock   thoroughly    and   cleanly  to  have the  young growth   of spruce, already on the ground, take its place."

MacHaffie, Manager  ������ x  K 9  Hats Hats Hats  i  THE DEADLY PARALLEL  That, Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been  an opportunist during the whole of  his parliamentary career is a fact that  has time and again been demonstrated  and when his more glaring inconsistencies have been pointed but, some of  the more slavish of his supporters  have had the hardihood to characterize them as manifestations of genius.  To be an opportunist and preserve  sonre little semblance of consistency  is at any time a rather difficult task;  but for an old man with failing memory to ��������� attempt to keep it up must  prove fatal. Here is a sample of it in  two speeches by Sir 'Wilfrid, on the  naval question as to Canada's obligation to Britain in war time; and. ye.t  this is the man into whose hands loyal  Canadians are asked to put a navy.  The maritime provinces and British  Columbia are the most directly interested in the question of naval aid to  Britain. The other provinces as a  whole would doubtlessly support the  movement heartily but solely as a  matter of principle and patriotism.  With those on the seaboard it is different and sentiment is backed up by  stern necessity for self protection.  The maritime-provinces, object very  strongly to reduction of their representation at Ottawa. Reduction of  course is a humiliating thing for any  province, but still a bargain is a bargain and no good can come from re-  pndiating the responsibility resting  upon all to abide by the agreement  provided in the British North America  Act.

The fuller import of this is seen  where he goes on to specify.

An Isbniaelitish sheet in Vancouver  recently   tried  to   make  believe   that  Sir.John   iMacdonald would have beerr  opposed   to direct  aid being  given by  Canada to the support of the British  navy,  arrd based   its authority on imaginary  words alleged   to have  been  used by  Sir John   in connection   with  Canadian troops to the war in Soudan,  ���������words that it is doubtful whether he  ever   said, or if he  did they wore distorted out of all semblance of his real  sentiments on the question.   And even  if he did use them he would have been  justified  for it would have been   preposterous on  Canada's part to meddle  in one of Britain's  liMle punitive wars  in a  distant  part of  the Empire,   and  especially  in   view   of  the   fact   that  Canada  was already well   represented  in that  war by  the Voyageur contingent  which mastered  the Nile for the  British  troops and transported  them  to the point where   they  could  meet  their foe.

The Hedley Hospital received during'  the week one carafe from  Mrs. Bradshaw and a supply of bed charts (history paper) from the Hedley Gazette.  James Noorran was brought up from  Keremeos last week for surgical treatment at the Hedley Hospital; but was  found to be too far gone to permit it.  He died on Tuesday.  Half a loaf is certainly better than  no bread; last week we were kickrng  about the irregularity of the mails in  forwarding coast papers, but Saturday's mail brought none at all.

The approach to the 1050 ft railway  tunnel on the V. V. Si E. through the  lidge behind Princeton is being taken  out by steam shovel and the wor k is  being driven as lapidly as possible.

Mr. arrd Mrs. Townsend and their  .son Harold left on Tuesday for Spokane, where the latter will undergo  medical treatment he having suffered  a relapse and a recurrence of his former trouble.  Marriage licences may now be issued in Hedley and may be had from  A. Megraw who has been authorized  by the treasury department to give  oirt the little paper that sometimes  plays the mischief.  Carl Hair-sine representing the W.  H.

The work train is still engaged rip-  rapping anil protecting the piers so as  to be in readiness for the fx-eshets  later on. It is easier arrd cheaper to  protect the grades than to allow them  to lie washed out and proper protec-  . tive work done afterwards.  On Friday evening last while the  Hedley Masons had a lodge meeting  on,'their women folk took advantage  of the sleighing to organize a sleigh-  riding party which drove out to Souk-  up's nine miles up the river, where  they spent two or three pleasant h'ours  returning by moonlight.  John Gladden last week orr behalf of  Mr. Studd sold the Commercial Hotel  building to Joseph Rotherlrain. The  price paid has rrot been given out but  it is generally believed that Mr. Studd  authorized his-agent here to accept  less than would have been considered  the orthodox pi-ice some time ago  Avhen the hotel business was believed  to have been more prosperous and  liquor legislation not so stringent as at  present, nor prohibitionist zealots so  aggressive.  The completion of a graded road to  the G. N. It. depot is badly needed.  That fact was fully demonstrated this  week when the rivulets and ponds  from the melting snow made it impossible i''H- pedestrians to reach (lie  station by the present roadway without getting nearly up to the knees in  water-, and almost impossible to get  there dry-shod by any route, for the  greater part of the flat seemed to be  one succession of ponds connected by  rivulets that were in most cases too  wide to jump across.  The Morrin-Thompson Company,  with stores at Phoenix and Peachland  are going to-open' a store at some  point in the' Similkameen. Although  final location has not been announced  it is thought that Otter Flat or Princeton is likely to be (-elected.  A. B. W. Hodges, general manager  of the Gran by Co. has been offered a  position as manager of a mine in Peru  at $50,000 a year in salary, and a three  years' engagement.  Slot machines have been fired out  of Phoenix. The sooner a similar regulation is enforced all over the province the bettei for laboring men,  business men and everybody.  Peter McRae, of Grand Forks went  through on Tuesday bound for Granite  ,Creek where he is putting in .buildings  for the Granite Creek coal piopeitv  which is to open up on a big scale.  The company, is said to have made a  contract with the Great Northern to  supply tfiem  with coal in six months.  Frequently we arc asked when Mr.  Camsell's final report on Camp Hedley  is coining out and we presume that is  what, Mr. Carnsell is as interested in  finding out as anyone else, but as he  does not run the-government printing  bureau he cannot be held responsible  for the delays which may occur there.  It was thought that the damage  done to fruit trees during the severe  winter of a year ago would put a damper on the fruit growing industry, but  these fears do not seem to have beerr  borne out. This spring the number  of trees to be planted at Keremeos  will be greater than that of any previous year and the same experience  seems to be general in other disteicts as  well. Sorrre of the nm series have  already exhausted their supply in  many lines arrd can furnish no more  stock for this spring's planting.  The water at the lake has about  given out and pumping has been discontinued. This week the 'mill has  only been running part of the time.  There.'is a possibility that with the  milder-; weather which has set in the  water may begin to increase somewhat. In the spring of 1905 the wa ter  had increased sufficiently, by the tenth  of March to supply enough for all  forty, stamps, but. that cannot very  well be expected this year. The spring  of 1905 was unusually early, and then  it must be remembered that up to that  time no pumping had been done from  the lake and the early spring found it  reasonablyfull.  A contribution to the hospital  should be regarded much the same as  vaccination. Both are supposed to be  preventives of disease and as each will-  lose its efficacy after a certain time if  not repeated, it might be well for the  hospital Board to consider the length  of time since, the townspeople have  been duly'vaccinated for the Hedley  hospital, and proceed to do it oyer  again. Besides there have been quite  a few who have come in since'the first  general contribution was made and  these would not want to be missed  simply because they happen to come  in a. little later. If all the rest of the  Board had the same hustle as the  doctor the hospital fund would be in a  more heaithy condition.  Up  to Tuesday  March 1st no Vancouver papers of later date than Tuesday  February 22nd  had reached Hedley.       On  Monday's   Mail   (2Stlr) the  Victoria  papers  of the  24th  were received  and also  the Westminster Columbian   of the loth.    If   postmaster-  General  Leinieux  would  pay a little  more attention to  the mail service in  this  province and a  little  less  to the  Lord's   D;iy Alliance  people he would  please the people   of this province better.     Before   there   was  any railway  running into I he Sirnilkamcen and we  were  sei ved   by stage from Penticton  we  used to get const morning  papers  of Thursday  in  Hedley  on  Saturday  evening.     Now,   however,   there are  towns in British Columbia where mail  trains arrive on  Sunday and  people  have  to wait  until   Monday  for mail  I'hi'V should   have had  two or three  davs before.
