Before proceeding with the regular  order the prime minister made a statement as to recent changes in' the cabinet. Mr. Tenipleman had not been assigned to the portfolio of marine and  fisheries, because the supreme question  in that department concerned the St.  LaAvrence River. He had transferred  that portfolio to Mr. Brodeur. The  neAV minister of inland revenue would  take. OA-er several departments that  Avere iioav under the minister of the  interior.  Another vacancy^ had been caused  by tlie resignation of Sir William  Mulock. The government had been  criticized for appointing Sir William  chief justice of the exchequer court of  Ontario. The question had been asked,  how could a man who Avas not strong  enough for public life perform the duties of a judge ? Sir Wilfrid thought  members of the house Avould understand Iioav that could he. But it Avas  objected that Sir William Mulock had  at one time advocated legislation forbidding any member of 'parliament to  accept an office under the cioxvn until  two years after he retired from parliament. It was true that hh advocated  such legislation, but in the premier's  opinion he made a mistake in doing so.  There Avas no English, precedent for  doing so.  R. L. Borden made a very effective  speech, hut missed the important  issue, which was seized upon by W. F.  Maclean,  "The right honorable gentleman."  said Mr. Maclean' "evaded and is still  evading the main point. The people of  Canada are, interested in the maintenance of the independence of parliament. The goA'ernment ignored the  fact that the one thing above all others  for which Sir William Mulock stood  Avas the maintenance of the independence of parliament.  "Men are. constantly passing out of  this house to offices of emolument under the croAvn. Since last session  eight members obtained office under  this government or through its procurement.  "The fight honorable gentleman has  assured us by his silence at least, that  he does not intend to maintain the  independence of parliament. He has  expressly told us that he discussed  with the neAV minister of marine and  fisheries the policy of his predecessor.  Has he folloAved the same course AA'ith  the rie\v postmaster general."  Mr. Maclean Avas satisfied that the  late postmaster general had fully determined to nationalize telephones,  telegraphs, and ultimately a cable system to the mother country. But Ave  had had no statement to-day as to  Avhether the policy of Sir William  Mulock Avas to be continued. When a  candidate in North York, Mr. Ayels-  worth had declared that he intended  to carry out the policy of his prececes-  sor as to the post office and telephones.  The British Columbia, 'members all  Avaited on Sir Wilfrid Laurier in regard to the vacant senatorship and  the lieutenant-governorship of the province. The result of the representations seems to be in favor of the appointment of George Riley, ex-M. P.  for Victoi'ia, for senator, and Jain.es  Dnnsmuir for the lieutenant-governorship.  W. A. Galliher, Kootenay, introduced in the house a bill to incorporate  the Kamloops and Yelknvhead Pass  Raihvay Company, and also a bill respecting the Kootenay and Arrowhead  Raihvay Company.  William Sloan, Comox-Atlin, introduced a bill respecting the Esquimalt-  Nanaimo Raihvay Company.  R. G. MacPherson, Vancouver City,  The Nelson Ncavs publishes the following paragraph from its 'GreenavoocI  correspondent. The reporter had evidently misunderstood Mr. Keffer and  hence got the geography a little mixed  in locating the Apex at the, top of  Copper Mountain.  " "GreeiiAvood, March ,21. ���������Frederic  Keller, a\'1io has just returned from an  extended trip, through the Similkameen, reports that .mining prospects  there are fairly bright. Mr." Keffer is  consulting engineer for the B. C. Copper company, and made the trip for  the purpose of inspecting the company's claims on Copper Mountain and  A'icinity. He covered nearly 101)0  miles, part of Avhich was accomplished  on snowshoes. Of the company's seven  claims, Avork is onlv being done on the  Apex. The Apex is located almost at  the top of Copper Mountain, nearly  S00O feet aboA'c sea level. Here development work is progressing favorably.  The shaft has been sunk 150 feet and a  drift has just been started. Ore has  been encountered in the shaft hut  Avork on the dr.ift has not proceeded  far enough to determine Avhat may be  the A'aluo of the'mine, though the pie-,  sent indications are encouraging.

AA'ork is being done on the other claims  at present and the future plans of the  company will be largely-influenced by  the results obtained on the" Apex.'  Mr. Keller states that the country  is a difficult one in Avhich to carry on  mining. Transportation problems are  hard to deal Avith, making only high  grade properties profitable^ The V.

(Molson Independent)  As a result of the Stork's visit to the  home of the Independent- family last  Saturday night there is now numbered  in the household a bouncing baby girl.

James Watt Avho has been foreman  for the Southern Okanagan Land Co.  for tlie past year, and carried out most  of the local improvements, resigned  last Aveek to look after interests which  he holds at Otter Flat. Mr. Watt  came in on Tuesday's stage and will  remain until the end of the week.  Geo. Sproule has leased his blacksmith shop to Messrs Bannen & Smith.  "VV. J. Manery has sold out his butcher business to H.H. Messenger, Avho  Avill henceforth run the Hedley Meat  Market.  Messrs J, E. Stephens, of Gault Bros,  and R. A. Chapman a drug traveller  came in on Tuesday.  It will be known in a few days whether Avork is to be resumed by the B.C.  Copper Co. on Copper Mountain but  there is a strong impression that it  Avill. When all parties come face to  face in the meeting Avhich is to be held  at Grand Forks, the Sunset Co. will no  doubt realize the injury Avhich they  would do to themselves and the camp  by putting any unnecessary obstructions in the way of a settlement.  ��������� Lost���������In Fraternity Hall the night  of the Masquerade Ball, a silver coin  bracelet.

The Gazette took a stroll down to  the south end of smelter flat and inspected the iiOAA'' premises on Avhich  the Hedley Lumber Co. expect to be  turning put lumber in about six Aveeks'  time."  The site is certainly an excellent one  and Avill enable the Company to carry  on their work this coming season AA'ith  a degree, of both safety and economy  .that Avas unknown on- the old site up  the river.  At the foot of the grade by which  the wagon road gains the level of  smelter flat, the. bunk-house, cookhouse and stable are placed, and about  two hundred yards or so below that,  on the level Avith the road, the site for  the mill building, Avhich Avill he 26x110  feet, is staked out, and considerable of  the square timber is on the ground.  The mill itself Avill be set up on' posts  about 7 feet above the ground, to facilitate handling the output and getting  rid of the debris. The mill is close to  the bank of what appears to have  been an old channel of the river, and  betAveen it and the Avagon road is a  wide,- level flat which will give abundance of yard room.  Opposite the mill or a trifle lower,  on this old channel, a strong dam has  been thrown across,-and above this  dam the old channel, for a distance of  about 400 yards, is being cleared of  logs, stumps and the larger rocks and  boulders to make plenty of room for  storage of the large stock of logs which  is banked at various points on the.  river between here and Princeton.  x\. long sand dune separates this old  channel from the present bed of the  river and along this dune a wind-row  of rocks taken from the old channel  is being laid to form the back-bone of  a dyke, Avhile at the upper end of the  old channel strong crib-work about  150 feet long is placed, and its bed at  this point will have to be deepened  about a couple of feet to flood the pond  at Ioav water  The river opposite-the entrance to  this old channel is still Avater at the  foot of a riffle, but ������t low water is  quite shallow, for the river is much  above the average Avidth at this point.  In the bed of the river above the  entrance to the neAV mill-pond, three  strong piers are placed at intervals of  about 200 feet, Avhich Avill act as supports for the shear boom which Avill  extend up the bed of the river about  1000 feet.  Above these piers on the opposite  side of the river is another piece of  cribbing to hold the logs from getting  during high Avater into another false  channel on the opposite side.  The AA'ork has been under the supervision of Harry SAA'an, Avho certainly  savA'ies his job and has done the work  both strongly and speedily. The last  of the three piers has been completed  and all that iioav requires to be done is  the deepening of the channel at the  upper end, the completion of the dyke  along the sand dune, the erection of  the mill and.plaeing of the shear boom.  So far the river has not risen at all  and everything will be completed before it can get high enough to interfere  Avith the. Avork.  Messrs. McDonald and Stewart are  to be congratulated on the arrangement, and all who.have good building  lots in Hedley upon Avhich they may  want to put up buildings, have every  encouragement for getting the necessary lumber.  Conflicting reports of the Penticton  affair coining to hand and no authoritative statement having as yet been  given out by W. T. Shatford, the resident Managing Director of the Southern Okanagan Land Co., it is difficult  to give an accurate statement of the  case, but after sifting out much of tin  chad' the facts Avould appear'to be that  on Wednesday night, 21st, the steamer  Aberdeen brought in ten Chinamen to  work for the Southern Okanagan Land  Co. at clearing land. A clique of  Socialists and Liberals combined, evidently thinking that a, general election  Avas near, enough to Avarrant them  making political capital, made'" a demonstration*!)}- compelling the Chinks  to go back whence they came.  This act of hnvlessiiess and mob rule  Avas resented by Mr. W. T. Shatford,  Avho had evidently communicated'with  Victoria, for on'Monday's boat Superintendent Hussey arr'iA-ed in Penticton,  but as yet nothing is known as to what  action he intends to take, although  the arrest of the ringleaders may not  be improbable.  At first it Avas reported   that   the .  Chinese Avere to work on the irrigation  ditches   upon    which   whitemen   had  formerly been employed, but this appears to ha,A-e been Avrong.  W. T. Shatford,. before employing  Chine.se, asked bids for clearing the  land, and had tAA'o acres cleared by  Avhitemen, to whom he had to pay  $500. This land Avas being sold at  $200 per acre and this price for clearing was impossible. Even after the  Chinamen had been engaged he offered  AVllO  W. J. Henderson left yesterday morning on a trip  to the Coast.  W.G.H. Belt formerly manager of  the Bank of B.N.A. at Greenwood,  but now one of the inspectors of the  bank came in on Tuesday's stage on a  visit of inspection to the Hedley  branch.  the  clearing   to any Avhitemen  ���������would take it at $75 per acre.  At Keremeos and other points  through the district this clearing has  all been done by Chinese (no AA'hites  caring to tackle the job) and no objection had been made to it, because  the parties employing them Avere not  in politics nor related to those'who'  Avere.  All through the district the scarcity  of Avhite-labor is severely felt, the  creAA's on the V. V. ������fc B. grades beloAv  Keremeos being less than half-mauned,  and the contractors say that in order  to keep men they have to butter the  bread on both sides for them. These  being the labor conditions of the district, it will not be hard for the public  to see through the game of this little  band of tricksters at Penticton, Avho  cannot even lay claim to originality,  as they were merely trying to repeat  the Phosnix incident AA'hc.re the.conditions were different and the question  involved Avas that of domestic help  only, Avhile'in this part of the province  the progress and adA'ancement of the  district is demanding the speedy completion of work for which insufficient  Avhite labor is offering.  In Phoenix the position of the ex-  clusionists is accepted as right, mainly  because it Avas successful, and the  people were too peace-loving to prolong the strife. Yet there are motherless tots to-day as the result of that  affair, because delicate women Ave re  forced to OA-ertax their strength in  doing their houseAvork, and lost their  lives in consequence.  Ahead y the Liberals are attempting  to make political capital out of the  affair, against, L. W. Shatford, Avho  kneAV nothing of the circumstance  until chaffed about it on the coast.  The Princeton Star, after grossly misrepresenting both this case and Mr.  Sliatford's position on the 8-hour bill,  says :  "Not content. AA'ith voting against  the 8-hour bill, Mr. Shatford seems  iioav by the importation of cheap coolies to have a particular grudge against  white-labor."  Every Avord of this statement of the  Star is false, and the Star knows it.  Will the Star explain the attitude  of the neAV Hedley Liberal Association  toAA'ards the employment of Chinese. They have just elected the Star  Editor's brother-in-law, Dr. Whillans,  president of the Association, knoAving  that he had leased his ranch at Hedley  to Chinese for five years, to i*nn opposition to whites. After, this act on  their part any attempt to make capital  out of the Penticton affair -will fall  flatter than a pancake. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE. MARCH 29, 1900.

He reports a.  . force of seven men at work on the  Apex and that development has been  prosecuted continuously all avinter.  There is about four feet of snow around  Apex Camp.  The Hedley Rifle Association had  better look out. A clause in Fit/'.pat-  rick's Sabbath Observance Hill reads:  "It.shall not be IaAvful for any person  on that day to shoot at any target,  mark or other object, or to use any  gun. rifle or other engine for that purpose."  it now appears that R.

What the visit  portends is mallei' for much specular-ion. and that speculation was not  lessened to any marked degree by the  air of secrecy maintained concerning  it.

The Avhole  thing apparently needs an overhauling  and tightening up. <  Much ado is made in certain sections  regarding the choice of Martin Burrill  of Grand Forks as delegate to Ottawa  for the Dominion Conference of fruit  groAvers, and a wordy warfare is on  concerning it. Jt does not require  much perspicuity to see that Mr. Burl-ell's politics rather than the location  of Grain I Forks is the main cause of  offence. After what AV. H. CoA'ertand  others of Grand Forks did for fruit.  groAving in the Interior, it is rather  remarkable that any question of this  kind should be raised at all.  Mc. F. A.

He Avas favorably  impressed Avith the country but could  not understand Avhy things Avere not  moving more rapiplyin the opening  up of properties. A too plentiful supply of snow in the mountains and  shortness of time at his disposal prevented him investigating properties  Avhile here, but in all probability he  Avill make another visit to the Siniil-  kaineen before the summer is oatci'.  Mr. Alex. Miller, of G rcemvood came  over on the Flyer last week to visit his  sister, Mrs. XV. E. Bnrritt, andAvas the  guest of Mr. andMcs. Bnrritt for ji few  days. Mr. Miller reports prosperous  times in the Boundary Avhere all the  big milling concerns are making money  and other lines of business flourishing  in consequence of this. He expects  more attention to be paid to the Si-  inilkaineon during the coining summer,  a nd more still a.fter the raihvay reaches  here, for the long hard stage trip is  not likely to proA-o attractive to many  aa'Iio would otherwise- like to come in  to see the country. Mr. Miller has recently made? some successful deals in  mining in the Boundary, Avhich are  likely to add materially to the general  prosperity, and it is hoped that he Avili  find time during the summer to investi-  conditions in this camp as  well.

There Avas i-ather strong- evidence  gh'en before the insurance commission  by A. Blakadar, actuary of the insurance department. After presenting  some correspondence regarding chargeable items, he said that the Royal Victoria company pafd 10 2-3 per cent, of  ���������its'premium income for salaries, Avhich  Avas larger than the aA'erage of other  companies; 5 per cent, for renewals,  and CI- to. Go per cent, for neAV business.  If the salaries and miscellaneous expenses exceeded 5 per cent., then the  business Avas not likely to be a profitable one.  A long report prepared by Mr.  Blackadar on these lines Avas handed  to superintendent Fitzgerald in March  1905, and it appeared-to remain in the  department until the i'olloAving November. The. report Avas a drastic and  radical one. It stated that if the management and expenses of the Royal  Victoria Avere riot cut doAA'n, the capital Avould be Aviped out, as the. business Avas carried at a loss. The report  was forwarded by Robert Mackay in  November. The Avitness could not say  why it lay so long in the department.  Witness was next examined on a  report made by himself in May, 1905,  on the. Home Life company, which  was run as  an  assessment company.
