FREEMAN  Secretory  Wonderful progress has been made  on the Hedley Gold Mining Company's  power dam on the Similkameen river  during the past week and if the  weather continues as favorable-'us it  has been, and there is not likely to be  any more trouble from that source, it  is expected that the five piers now under construction will be completed by  the end of the week. Excavation for  the abutment on the west end is' also  progressing rapidly and will be about  completed by the time the five piers  are finished and the river ready to  turn over. A start has already been  made in getting things ready for turning the river.  Mr. McLean has now a gang of  about 40 men at work on the darn  and at no time since the work started  has the prospect looked brighter for  havirrg all the foundation and piers in  before higher-water than at the present time.  A start was also made a few days  ago surveying and clearing the right-  of-way for the ditch and flume, which  will be on the West side of the river,  and already about five hundred yards  has been cleared.

Increase in the output of gold, silver, lead, zinc and coke in 1913 over  the production of 1912 is shown irr the  preliminary report of the British Columbia. Department of Mines.. The increases are : Gold $171,581; silver $217,-  512; lead, $324,653; zinc, $24,661; eoke,.  $l'2i'7-i0". "There was a decrease in the  copper output of $1,387,050 and of $1,-  722.3S5 in the coal production.  The increase in the gold output is  attributed in the report to the mines  of the Rossland, Nelson, Lillooet and  coast districts. Rossland is credited  with 136,300 ozs.; Boundary, 103,300  ozs., Nelson, 23,500 ozs.; coast district,  3000 ozs.; Lillooet, 1,300 ozs.  Over half the silver of the province,  3,569,642 ozs., valued at $2,027,557, was  produced by the Slocan, and of the  total of this district the Standard was  responsible for about two-thirds.  Slocan produced 1,860,000 ozs.; Ains-  worth, 487,000 ozs.,. East Kootenay  413,000 ozs.; Boundary, 380,000 ozs.  Nelson 160,000 ozs.  Of the lead output of 54,200,000 lbs.  the Slocan and Ainsworth districts  produced 31,000,000 lbs.: East Kootenay 20,300,000 lbs. and Nelson 2,000,-  000 lbs.  The Standard produced 16,600,000  lbs.; the Rambler-Cariboo, 2,200,000  lbs.; the Van Roi, 780,000 lbs.; the  Bluebell, 7,800,000 lbs.; the Consolidated company's mines at Ainsworth,  1,300,000 lbs., the Sullivan and St.  Eugene, 19,000,000 lbs.; the Monarch,  1,000,000 lbs.; the H. B., 900,000 lbs.;  and the Emerald 800,000 lbs.  The decrease in the copper output  value wa.s partly due to the lower  price of the metal and to the fact that  the coal strike of 19.11 gave the Boundary companies an opportunity to develop their properties during that year,  with the result that the output of  1913 was a -record one. "It would,  therefore, seem that this year's copper  output is in reality considerably above  the average and donates a steadily increasing production," say the report.  '1 he report predicts nn increase of  the copper output of the Boundary,  now responsible for 00 per cent of the  production of the province, during  the coming years.   .  The year's zinc output of 7,100,000  lbs. all came from the Slocan, with the  exception of 130,000 lbs. from the  Monarch mine, near Field.  The decrease in the coal prodution  wa.s due to the strike on Vancouver  island.      There   was   an   increase   of  Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 21.���������Approximately 25 per cent, of/grading on the  joint section of the>Hope Mountain  railway, between Hope and Coquihalla  summit, which will be used by the  Kettle Valley and .Vancouver, Victoria, & Eastern lines, has been completed, according , to advices received  from Siinilkanieen.  Though the section being built jointly by the Canadian Pacific railway and  Hill line consists of only part of the  line over the Ho'pe mountains, it is under-stood that arrangements have jiist  been completed for joint construction  of the line from OoalUiont to Hope, in  other words an added now section  from Coahnont west to Otter summit  will be jointly constructed. Already  Dhe Vancouver, Victoria Si Kastern  has two-thirds of the grading work  done between Coahnont and Otter1 summit, so that it will take a compar-a lively short time to getilthis part of the  line ready for rails.   /  This will mean, it is said, that the  Kettle Valley line will abandon about  50 miles of its old survey, which passed through Aspen Grove. The Aspen  Grove Land Co., whose stock is controlled by the Duke of Portland and  other old country capitalists, has been  oppossingany change in plans.  On the other hand the change in the  route is being urged on the ground of  early completion of the line and the  saving of a couple oi million dollars  to the Kettle Valley people.,    ���������  ���������  A bill providing for the changed  route is likely soon to be submitted-  to ��������� the  legislature for.-:; consideration.  BANDITS AIDED  TO ESCAPE  Police Arrest Man at  Birch   Bay Who  is Supposed to Have Aided  Train Robbers   .  ESTIMATES   BROUGHT   DONW  LAND SETTLEMENT  Sir George Paish; GivetSome-GQod; Ad  vtce to Canadians  Sir George Paish, the editor of the  London Statist, and one of the great  financial authorities in the world has  said much in. praise of Canada since  he spent some weeks in the east a few  months ago. In a very close analysis  of our industries and our resources he  gives advise which seemingly is good.  "The machinery created to take care  of the production of Canada", he says,  "is sufficient at present to deal with at  least twice if not thrice the existing  output."  Sir George states that Canada has  now more extensive means of transportation and more facilities for production than she has products to  handle. His advice is that any further  financial aid should be used by the  Dominion to promote : production  "until it overtakes the provided machinery for handling and marketing  it." He advises Canadians to spend  the hulk of the British loaned capital  which they now have and which they  are aiming to get. in securing settlers  for their agriculture lands and equipping them for prosperous citizenship  thereon.  If the advice of Sir George is taken  all future loans will be labelled "Laud  Settlement."  Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 25.--Lee  Walruth, believed to be the man who  aided the escape of two bandits who  held up the Great Northern passenger  train at Sanrish lust Friday, was arrested today at noon at Birch Bay,  by Sheriff Thomas, of Bellingham. as  he was heading toward British Columbia. The prisoner is being taken to  Bellingham in a launch. VValruth is  accused of stealing a launch from Bellingham just before the hold-up.  On Saturday morning he appeared  at the Lummi Bay Packing company's  plant on Lummi Island, and soiurht  shelter. He remained there until yesterday with the caretaker- of the  plant.  This morning Sheriff Thomas, with  two others, started out in a. fast  launch to scour the bays between here  and British Columbia. At Birch Bay  they found the stolen lauhch. Walruth  had stopped there, turned the boat  over to a farmer and told -him he  could have the use of the craft for a  month as he was going into British  Columbia. The sheriif and his men  then started for Blaine in a wagon and  overtook Walruth.  The theory is that Walruth aided  the bandits- Lo a hiding place on one  of the islands and then started out to  take care of himself. Hecariied two  revolvers and a riile when arrested.

In the increased gold output of  Canada, the mines of British Columbia  were an important factor, producing  $0,049,520 in 1913, compared with $5.-  877,942 in 1912, according to the preliminary report of the provincial department of mines.  Do yon know Canada?   A novel and  unique mine of information  is found  in tiie popular booklet,   "5,000 Facts  About Canada",  just issued for 1914,  and compiled  by    Prank Yeigh,   the  well-known   statistical   authority   on  things  Canadian.    This    new edition  shows a marked advance over previous  issues in an   increase of new  data, a  handsome cover, a  revised  map,  and  improved paper.   The publication contains all the essential facts of Canada's  progress in a year, under such chapter  heads as Agriculture, Area,   Banking,  Census, Mitring, Manufacturing, Trade  etc., while striking tables  of comparisons presents   a measuring rod of our  national development.

ENCOURAGE   HOME   INDUSTRY  A rich strike is reported to have  been made, on O'Donnel's creek, in the  Atlin country.  Three hundred anil twenty-five tons  of ore was shipped from the Silver  Stand"ud ��������� mine, at New- fcHazelton,���������to,  the Trail Smelter last week.  The blowing in of the uornpany's  smelter at Hidden Creek has been  delayed by cold weather.  The Granby Company has declared  a regular quarterly dividend of $1.50  a share. This will make a total of  $36.50 a share, or $5,04S,77S that the  Granby has returned to stock holders  since incorporation.  The British  Columbia    Copper Co.  has issued a circular to its shareholders  announcing the  plan which  has  been  under consideration fur some time for  financing its   development  work  and  other obligations.    It provides for the  organization of a new company under  the laws of Virginia,   to be known  as  the.  Canada   Corporation,    Limited,  with an authorized capital  of $5,000,  000, its shares having a par value of $5  each.    The    new  company    will   also  authorize an issue of $1,000,000 10-year  0 per cent,  convertible debentureSi   to  be dated April 1,1914, and to be convertible at any time on or before  maturity for the stock of the  new  company at par on the   proposed   basis  of  capitalization.      In     explaining    the  reasons for bringing out this plan. Mr.  Newman Erb,   president of  the  company, says that the  management  has  realized for several  yenrs  the  necessity of supplementing its  ore reserves  in order to overcome the depletion  of  its present mines    In spite of the  fact  that the organization and equipment  have been maintained at a high state  of efficiency, it lias been found   impossible to develop each  year sufficient  ore  reserves  to  leplace   the  tonnage  extracted,  consequently  it has   been  found necessary to devote the surplus  earnings to  the  examination and  exploration    of    new     property.     This  policy has resulted in the development  of "a very promising mineralized area  at Copper Mountain, located approximately 12 milles south  of Princeton,  B. C.    This  town  is about  140 miles  west of Greenwood and 35 miles north  of the international boundary on  an  operating branch of the Great  Northern Railway  Company.    A branch  of  the Canadian   Pacific  Railway  Co.   is  now being built  to  Princeton  also.������������������  Monetary Times.  ' Victoria.

B. C. FORESTS IN DANGER  Insects Making  Frightful   Havoc���������Fire  Brings the Insects  Sir John Tenniel, cartonist jjfor  "Punch", died in London on Friday  last. He was one of the greatest car-  tonists known.  Sir George Ross is gradually sinking  and the end may come at any time.  As the result of recent scientific investigations of insect ravages in British   Columbia, 'it   was   found   that  in  some places  finest insects have destroyed twenty-five percent of the timber crop.    In California, on the Sierra  National Forest,   the damage done by  insects last summer-  far exceeded that  clone  by fire.     In eastern Canada the  bark beetle on the pine,  the'.hud worm  on   the spruce and the saw-fly on the  larch have done so much injury to the  forests that special legislation for their  control lias been passed   by the Feder-  <-il and  Provincial  Governments.    Indeed,   as   a   result   of the  continued  ravages of its worst insect enemy (the  large larch saw-fly) the larch, or "tamarack" is gradually becoming commercially extinct in Canada.  The present  plethora of insect pests  in the forests of C'inada is due largely  to  the recent  ravages  of forest fires,  which killed or weakened the standing  timber and thus provided vast feeding  grounds for  these  insects.    It  is  fortius  reason   tlrat   forest  fires   are   so  much dreaded by  timber owners, for  it is not often   that the fire  itself destroys   the   merchantable  value of the  timber.    Usually it is the wood-boring  insects  which   follow  in the  wake of  such fires  that make the  timber unfit  for lumber and   have a large  share in  causing  the  millions   of   dollars   loss  which the nation suffers annually.  To attempt the wholesale control of  the insects themselves would be a.  hopeless task, but by eliminating fire-  damage, widespread insect-damage  may also be automatically prevented,  for healthy trees are not susceptible to  attack. By segregating forest reserves  on which the percentage of fire loss  the last summer was smaller than on  any similarly protected areas in America, the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior is taking a  leading part in the control of insect  ravages.  Lord Minto died in London on Monday, March 2nd. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, MARCH 5,"I 914.  Similkameen Advertiser.

It does not follow that  his choice was wrong.    At the Lest he  would not have been   greater than   all  other painters, but he was'unqui'stion-  ably the greatest  artist 'in his' speeial  vocation.     During'his half  century of  work   on ������������������Punch".he gave pleasure to  a thousand persons for' every 'one who  would have enjoyed a. view of liis paintings.

PROGRESS ALONG RIGHT LINES  The    budget   speech    delivered    by  Hon. Price Ellison, minister of finance,  in the  legislature  on  Thursday,   wa.s  quite properly thoroughly  optimistic.  Mr.   Ellison   wa.s  able  to  show   that,  despite  whatever stringency   in    the  money market there  may  have   been  the revenue  of  the  province   for the  year exceeded the  amount estimated  by two and  a half million dollars  and  that  the   production    of  the    farms,  mines,   forest    and   fisheries    for   the  year had  exceeded   one  hundred   mi  lion dollars,   and he   wa.s  also abb;   to  present   other   evidences   of    various  kinds as to   the  prosperity  of  llritish  ���������Columbia.     His   statement of   conditions, while optimistic,   was in   no  respect  overdrawn.  Mr. Ellison took opportunity to express his faith in the future of the  province, the development of which  he felt, along proper lines will be even  more rapid in the future than it has  been in the immediate past satisfactoy  though that has been, but he was  careful to point out thatget-rich-quick  Appendicitis    Book   Free  The Adler-i-ka book, telling how  you can EASILY guard against appendicitis, and ho.w you can lelieve  constipation or gas on the stomach  INSTANTLY, is offered free this week  by F.

Boeing returned home on  ���������Wednesday last from up the West  Fork of the Kettle river, where he has  the contract of putting in a bridge at  Carmi  for the provincial government.  At the present time it begins to look  as  if those  who have not already seined their ice for the coming summer  will either  have to do without  or else  have it shipped in from outside points.  The snow has rapidly disappeared  this week owing to the warm springlike weather, and on Sunday several  members of the Hedley Golf Club had  the pleasure of playing a couple of  holes on the Hedley links.

A rather peculiar accident ocenred  to the Great Northern local train on  its return trip from Coahnont on  Friday last, a large tree falling right  across one of the cars which was loaded with ties. The accident did no  damage, beyond breaking the tele-  gragh wires and delaying the train  for a couple of hours.  By the almost unbelievable score of  of 102 to one tiie Oroville, Wash;, high  school basketball team defeated the  Hedley team last Friday night at  Oroville. "The* "game;1 although one  sided from start to finish, was a  -peetacular oheand was well worth  watching. The Oroville team was  perfectly trained and their'team work  was excellent. Although the': Hedley  lioys were completly outclassed, they  are to be complimented at the ganie-  ness they showed. There were but  few fouls called on either team and  the game was free from any unnecessary roughness.  Provo, of the Oroville team, played  a star game making baskets from almost every part of the field. He had  to his credit the making of 27 baskets.  Powell of the same team had 13 to his  credit.  Pollock and Barrett, on the forward  line of the locals, played a good game  until they were compelled to leave the  field, Pollock having injured his hand  and side in a bad fall and Berrett  suffered a sprained ankle. They were  replaced by G. Knowles aud B. Robertson.  A return game in Hedley has been  arranged with the Oroville boys for  March the 20th, when the local boys  hope .to make a better showing.  Duffy LaRose of Princeton refei eed  the game to the satisfaction of the  players on   both  teams.  The line-up was as follows:  Our Whole.

Mr. Newsonre of Oroville was a visitor to town Saturday.  The packing school started in good  shape with a full attendance.  Miss Annie Innis returned home  Monday after spending three week in  Oroville.  Mr. Keeler and Mrs. Sinclair spent  a few days at the lower Richter ranch  last week and also stopped at Oroville  a day,before returning.  . Mrs. Digman of Princeton left for  her home  on Friday  last after spend-   ingseveral  days with her sister,  Mrs.  E. D. Fargo, of this place.  The whooping cough which has been  prevalent in the district the past two  'month's is dying "out. and nearly all the  children are now free from it.  Dave Innis had the misfortune to  have the have one of his stage horses  fall and break its leg last Friday night  while being driven from the Centre to  town.  The weather of late has been beyond compare. Everyday plowing is  in full swing on the benches and several bundled trees have already been  planted.  Ch'as.'li. Armstrong returned home  on Saturday last, the 28th February,  after being away nearly ten weeks  attending the Agricultural college at  Oorvallis, Oregon.  Peter Bromley, blacksmith, is now  at Hedley taking Ed. Bun's place for  a week or two. Ed. had the misfortune to receive a bad cut on his '''arm  and blood poisoning set in.  Mr. and Mrs. G..P. Jones of Hedley  came down on Thursday evening's  train. They returned home the following day. While here they were  the guests of Mr. and Mrs. J. A.  Brown.  AV. G. Mattice aiid family arrived  from Winnipeg on Thursday the'20th.  All were looking in the best of health  ���������and aie. very enthusiastic .about the  Manitoba capital and its prospects,  but at the some time are pleased to be  back to the best spot on the map.  The lacrosse season will soon be  hei e and some of the boys have already been out with their sticks. It  is the hope of the Keremeos lacrossites  that our sister towns, Princeton and  Hedley, will soon organize so as to be  able to draw up a schedule of games  for the summer.  A large number of friends gave Mrs.  ���������lack Thomas a,pleasant surprise on  Friday evening, the 27th inst, by visiting the 'ranch and taking with them  a fine, silver set of knives and forks as  a birthday gift. The sitting room was  cleared and the merry party danced  until the small hours of the morning.  .1. M. Young was out a couple of  days last week clearing up the derbis  on the Hedley road. The spring thaw  caused the dislodgement of earth and  rocks which spread over the road in  different places making it unsafe to  travel, especially at night. lie also  fitted up a portion of cribbing which  had fallen out.  Jackie Carle on Saturday last invited all his little friends in town to help  him get rid of a large birthday cake  and to see all his presents. The little  folks included Jimmy, Marjorie and  Kelly Emory, Leonard and Frankie  innis, Lillian Young, Willie Carle,  Herbert and Mary Frith, Wilfrid  Mado re and Alfie Mills.  The rush of business which wits go-  'ing on "at the Great Northern depot  here, on Tuesday morning certainly  looked as if great things were going  to be done this coining summer. A  large quantity of wire fencing, irons,  implements of various descriptions,  building material and also a quantity  of alfalfa seed were unloaded.  Fully fifty people visited  the "Willows" on Monday evening to do honor-  to Mr. and Mrs. Tom Daly.    The evening  was  delightfully  taken   up   with  music   and  dancing   and   before   the  close all joined hands,   and  with Mr.  and  Mrs. Daly  inside   the  circle,   the  party sang  "for  they  are jolly good  fellows."     Mr.   and Mrs. Daly  left on  Tuesday evening for Spokane where  they will visit Mr. and Mrs.  Lindsay,  the father  and mother  of  Mrs. Daly.  Torn  after remaining a short while in  Spokane   will   leave   for   Vancouver,  where he has to report for- the spring  trainingwith the Vancouver ball team,  better known as the Beavers.    We all  join in wishing them every success.  Mr. and Mrs. J. A. brown gave a  charming party at their residence in  honor, of Mr and Mrs Tom Daly. Mrs  Daly was presented with a basket  into which the ladies present placed  some small token of their appreciation. The evening was pleasently spent  in dancing aird music. A delicious  supper was served at twelve oclock by  the hostess.  J. A.    ROWN  Notary Public  CONV*KYANC1NG, CUSTOMS BKOKEKAOE,  FIRE  INSURANCE  OFFICE  KEREMEOS. B.C.

C���������Feb. 25.���������The British Columbia Legislature this evening  adopted the radium bill on second  reading, and as the opposition approved of the measure its passage is assured. Briefly the measure provides for  the provincial government sharing in  any discovery of radium in British Columbia to the extent of fifty per cent.;  it rewards the discoverer .$5000 upon  proof of discovery, audit amends the  mining act so that radium will not be.  classed with other minerals.  Sir Richard McBride, the premier,  stated that he had no doubt that there  were valuable deposits of pitchhlende  in the province "The national governments at Ottawa and Washington,"  he said, "have been interested in this  question, and we wish to fall into line  with the legislative measures now under consideration in Canada and the  United States, so far as the discovery  of radium is concerned."

YOU WANT THE, BEST  IT ALWAYS PAYS BEST  There are Two Kinds of Printing  The one is turned out by the man who believes that  anything- goes, but the other by the one who values  the reputation of his establishment too highly to  allow any work to go out which will not do him  credit.  There is just as good work being done in country  offices as in the cities, and often as poor work in the cities  as in the worst country shops  In Prices the country office can do just as well for  you and you save the express. The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the IocjiI freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the-'  country printer will charge for the same class of work.  ���������  {  X  ���������  ���������  ���������  ;���������  THE   flEDLEV   GAZETTE  is prepared to  do any kind of work that may come along.
