Evidently it is to meet the wishes of  those who lmve held that the issue of  the annual mines report in the months  of August or September  was hot soon  enough and that the information coin-  ingat that time  was too belated to he  of inucli  practical value  in advancing  the interests of mining in  this province that a change in this repect is being made and there has  been issued  from the department  of urines at Victoria a preliminary  report which  is  styled a Preliminary Review and Estimate of Mineral Production  for Year  1911" by AVm. Fleet Robertson.  'The pamphlet contains 30 pages in  which the production in the province  as a whole is dealt with  and also by  districts.     In  this hitter portion the  Boundary "district production is treated iii  considerable detail and conspicuously placed therein is the paragraph  devoted' to Camp Hedley, which says:  ''.'���������A, brief summary   of the ^Hedley  Gold Mining  Company's work arid results    in   1911   follows:    development  work consisted of drifting,  055 feet;  sinking, 325 feet; and 'raising, 235 feet;  total,  1,315- feet.     Diamond   drilling  totalled 3,100 feet.   The quantity of  ore .milled was about 57,000 tons, of an  average  value of .$12.10 per tori; the  percentage  of extraction for the year  was 02 per cent.   Four quarterly *livr-  dends   were  paid   by   the   company,  amounting together to 25 per cent., on  the issued  capital  of $1,200,000.    At  the close of the year the lower levels  of tire company's mines  were looking  well,   with  large   reserves   of ore   in  sight,  and the outlook for 1912 is ac-.  cordingly bright."  Of the Apex it says:  "This   property   was   taken   under  bond and option of  purchase by Mr.  T.  D.   Piokard   anil   associates,   who  commenced   work  orr  it last autumn  and have  been continuing   it through  the winter."  In the portion given to Sinn'lkanieen  division it is for the most part taken  up with amount of development on the  ���������'coal properties although mention is  also made of the operations on Copper  Mountain in connection with the bond  which the B. C. Copper Co. hold on  the Voigt properties and there is also  mention of the work to determine the  depth of the gravel beds on the Tulameen'and the Geological Survey work  :in connection with the diamonds  found in chromite rock on Olivine  mountain and to further investigate  :the placer deposits of gold arid platinum.

There was a question raised wherrthis  matter was brought before this House  as to its connection with the town of  Summer-land and the coming important centre of Princeton, and I have-  today been warned by my friend, the  member for Siinilkanieen, to say to  this House that we are assured in connection with the Kettle Valley thai  this line will be build, not as it is so  often expressed to a point in or near  Princeton, but that it will be built in  and tin ough Princeton, so that part  of my friend's constituency is certain  Kettle Valley Will Make a-Start on Their  Hope Mountain Section Early  in  May  Vancouver, B.

The Liberal convention which met  in Vancouver on March 1st. decided to  contest every constituency in British  Columbia in the forthcoming election.  In the election of a leader the choice  fell on 11. C. Brewster, of Alberni,  who was also made the new president  of the Liberal Association for the  province. Sir Wilfrid Laurier is made  Honorary president and the vice-presidents were selected from the various  portions of the province.  An attempt was made to frame a  platform anil the architect thereof  must have got hold of Smith Curtis'  platform of six years ago and plagiarized it till he got tired before the Curtis platform was more than two-thirds  covered. Among the planks are to be  found women's suffrage, local option,  public ownership of telephones, government dyking and irrigation, abolition of laud staking etc. and various  others that- have merit but which the  Attorney-general has remarked, are  now being put in operation by the Mo-  Bride government as speedily us possible.  Hawthornthwaite is not likely to be  a candidate in the present election and  will devote his time henceforth to  demonstrating socialism by showing  how big a pile of this world's goods he  can get together for .1. H. Hnwthorn-  Ihwaite, but no divvy up.  Sir Joseph AVard has announced his  retirement from the premiership of  New Zealand. '--'"'*  The strike of tiie English coal miners  bids fair to be the greatest industrial  battle in which organized labor has  ever engaged. It will cause bigger loss  than any other, and before it is over,  no .part of the. community will be as  heavy losers as the strikers themselves  even if the mine owners have to pay  them the wages they are asking.  The new governor of the Yukon is  about to introduce some radical reforms iu the administration of that  teiri tor y.  A huge mass meeting in Massey  hall, Toronto, passed resolutions upholding the position taken by Ulster  in her struggle against home rule.  Canada's trade has shown enormous  gains over that for the months of  January and February in any former  year.  The Premier nndA ttorney-genernl  are on a. political tour of the interior  this week.  Rcvelstoke is making strong effort  '������������������*��������� secure connection with the G. T. P.  and C. N. K. by way of Tete Jaime.  Cache.  Ontario is to have a port orr Hudson's Bay, but Manitoba gets the two  buns, Nelson and Churchill.  Arr order-in-co.uncil changes nomination day to the 14th of March which  is exactly 14 days before election. The  time intervening between nomination  anil election was formerly one week.  If the National Rifle Association of  Great Britain don't quit beefing about  the Boss rifle no Canadian Bisley  team will leave Canada for England  this summer. So says Colonel Sam  Hughes, the Canadian Minister of  Militia.  Shortly after prorogation of the  British Columbia .Legislature the  house was dissolved and the writs  were issued for.a general election on  the 28th of March and since the announcement was first made an order-���������  in-council has been passed changing  the date of the nomination which is  now to.be on March 14th instead of  the earlier-date first given out.  The time is short but it will serve,  arrd as it is desirable to get it over as  quickly as possible and at a time when  business will be least interfered with  the date chosen seems to have been  well calculated to suit all classes better than any other. By extending the  time a few weeks longer it would  throw it into seeding time and thus  prove inconvenient and expensive fortius farmers.  The short time available i.s making  the party organizations get busy and  nominating conventions a re all crowded into a space of about a week in.the  various ridings. The Conservative  convention for Sinrilkanieeii is called  for Keremeos on Friday, March Sth.  So far as this convention is concerned  it will be merely a matter of form to  comply with the requirements of party  organization. The sitting moinlu'r has  proved himself worthy of the trust  placed in him-nine years ago and ratified since then on two subsequent occasion both by his party and by the  electors and there is no thought anywhere of a change. Whether there is  to be a contest or not rests wholly  with his opponents in Hie. opposition  camps whether Liberal or Socialist or  both.  J. A. Brown, of Keremeos. is the returning officer for the riding arrd is  busy perfecting his arrangements for  carrying out his duties in connection  therewith.  Announcement is made that Premier Mi-Bride and Attorney-General  Bowser .who a re now on tour through  the interior of the province will take  in Hedley, reaching here on Monday  March ISth. f;  'They are covering the ground rapidly and holding two or three meetings  every day.. They will doubtless reach  here by mid-day train .from the south  and hold tneir meeting'in the afternoon after which they will proceed to  Keremeos to speak there in the evening and go through the same night to  Penticton where they will address a  meeting on Tuesday jn'ornihg, proceed  up the lake to Kelowna for a meeting*  thine in the/afternoon mid "on to Vernon for a .mass ������������������meeting., on Tuesday  'light. ,���������;'._..  . .Announcement will be made later on  as  to  the  hour of  meeting   here on  Monday   afternoon.     The 'afternoon'  nie.eti.rig  would  of course  be   bettter  suited for Kerenicos   than for Hedley  where  most of the  men  are on  shift:  But the arrangement which  has been  made  is the  only one that will fit in  with   their  plans for public   address  in.  the  -Minited    time   at   their   disposal,  for after they leave here there  will only be" ten   more days before the  election  and  in   that  time  they,will .  have to  visit all or most of  the  constituencies on the coast.        -..-.,  It is hoped, however, that they will  not be wholly dependent upon the  regular train on the Great Northern  for their trip up this valley, for it  would detract from the success of an  afternoon meeting in Hedley to have  to gel the meeting over in time to  leave'liy the afternoon train. If the  Hedley meeting could be held back  until about four o'clock it would enable those who conic off shift at three  o'clock to attend, and also coming off'  at five, by going direct to the meeting  could come in for a considerable part  of the addresses, and the distinguished  visitors could still reach Keremeos bv  auto in time for the meeting there in  the evening.  WILLIAMS-FOX  EDWARD BLAKE  CROSSES  DIVIDE  Ex-Leader of Liberal   Party in Dominion  and Politician of Wide Experience is Dead  A quiet but pretty wedding took  place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.  G. H. Sproule, Hedley, on March 2nd.  when Eliot H. Williams, assayer to  the Hedley Gold Mining Company,  was'riiarried to Miss Caroline E. Fox-  late of the Hedley Hospital.  The ceremony was performed by thi-  Rev. A. II. ('amerori in liis usual impressive manner: the bride being  given away by Mr. George Sproule.  whilst the lighter duties of bridesmaid  and best man were ably fulfilled by-  Miss Elsie Williams and Mr. Wallis-  Knowles, with Mr. and Mis. Gomer P.  Jones as wedding guests. The bride,  who looked charming as she entered  the drawing, room to tire music of  Lohengrin, carried a bouquet, of ni-  phetos roses, the gift of the bridegroom, wiiilst the supper table on  which a dainty repast was served after the ceremony, was most artistic in  its colour scheme carried out in red  and while carnations (also given by  the bridegroom), white chiffon and  fairy lamps.

P. for South  Longford, Ireland, in the British commons from 1S92 to 1907, died this  afternoon at his residence after an illness of nearly five years. He was  born irr Cairngorm, Ontario, in 1833,  and had been in public life in Canada,  and Great Britain since 1S67.  The G. T P. has promised to rush  the connection between Port George  and the main line.  Laurier's naval bill is likely to be  repealed and the people given an opportunity forthwith to express their  wishes in the matter of Canada's contribution to the naval strength of the  .empire.  wedding cake which was of the best  was supplied by Mrs. McGibbon who  with Mrs. Jones and her daughter,  lent Mrs. Sproule most able assistance  in the preparations. The place cards,  most original in design, were the  handiwork of or contributed by Mr.  Wallis Knowles. Among the iuan\  beautiful wedding presents may be  mentioned the bridegroom's present  to the bride which consisted of ;>  pearl and peridot bracelet, and the  bride's present to her husband was a  pearl and peridot scarf pin.  At an early date (which will be announced later) Mr. and Mrs. Williams  hope to receive the many friends  whom limited space prevented their  inviting to the wedding.

Rev. A. II. Cameron had a round of  the golf Hides on Monday morning  when the thermometer showed about  twenty degrees of frost. Nevertheless  the turf was in good condition for  play and the balls travelled briskly  over the frozen ground, and irr spite  of the fact that he found it comfortable play with his overcoat on he  managed to get together a tidy looking score.

The question which bothered the  people of Keremeos last week was  settled last Saturday. Someone saw  I he barber, who was .sufficiently jagged that he had to be jugged. It was a  case of jagged, jugged, jogged, for  bright and early on Sunday morning  after saying his prayers, duly pulled  his freight for places unknown to us.  We hope he keeps travelling.  The supper- given   by  Chin Kee at  the Central Hetel last week was greatly appreciated   by all.    The  table was  laid   to suit   a king,  and  without exaggeration   was the  best supper evei  put  before   the  people   of  Keremeos.  After-   this  sumptuous  repast,   many  wended  their way  over to the hall to  finish off the evening in dancing.  The  Moor was in fine shape arrd was merry  nnd   bright.    .About   11:30 Chin  Kee  walked  round the hull  and presented  nil the ladies with a. lino silk handkerchief.     Mrs. W. M. Frith  and W. M.  Daly provided  the music to  the great  enjoyment of the dancers.  We would like to draw the atten-  t ion of some of the fruit growers in  the district, that the bust place to advertise what we aro proud to blow  ;i bout-  that is our  fruit - -should be in  A Battle  to   the   Death   Between   a  Donkey and'ai, Wolf.  ���������A combat of most unusual character occurred near Paso del Norte,  Mexico. The participants were n  burro, or little Mexico donkey, and a  wolf of a very largo-species, known ns*  the lobo. During the night his burro-  ship had broken out of the sUih'le  and wandered several miles out into  the country. His owner, going to  seek him, was an eyewitness to. his  fight, with the wolf and thus described" it:  "My   burro  wa.s  quietly  grazing in  a   little   grassy   dell   lying   between  two   walls   of    jutting,    ragged    rock  when   the   wolf   came   trotting   along  -with   his   head   close  to   the ground,  as  it'  trying   to  trnil  .something���������this  being   characteristic   of  that,  .species:  He did not see Dandy���������as   I  call my  burro���������until  he  was   nearly  on   hi in.'  nnd it was not till then that, raising  his   head.,   the   latter   saw   the   wolf.  The  moment  they   set- eyes  on   each  other I could see  that a  fight would  surely   follow.     The   wolf,   with   his  jaws     snapping   and   growling   ferociously,  made at Dandy,  who wheeled  sharply   around   and   let   fly   with  his  heels,  tumbling his  enemy  over  and   over  and   nearly   pounding   the  life from him.   This-performance, was  renoa'ted   again   and   again   until   the  wolf  seemed   to   realize  flint the   job  on hand was decidedly more than he  hud  bargained for.    The last, contact,  of Dandy's  heels had sent him with  a crash  against the hard  rocks that  walled  in  the dell  and stunned  him  for a mimrte or two.   So, on recovering, he changed his tactics.   Running  up to   Dandy,  he  waited  until  those  terrible   heels   were  elevated   in    the  air, when, jumping around with surprising  agility,   he   dodged ������������������ the   kick  and made for his antagonist's throat.  The latter, however, was on the lookout,   and  the  lobo    found    that   the  burro's other end was also armed for  battle.    Before  he   could    fasten    on  'any part of the lively animal he was  ca tight at the back of his ears "by a  set of powerful teeth, and in a second  his neck wa.s broken.   Notwithstanding the.fact that the. wolf xvna killed  instantly, Dandy held on to him and  occupied himself for several minutes  with    beating   his   vanquished    foe's  body  up  and  down   oh  the  ground.  Then,  feeling  satisfied that life  was  extinct, he dropped the carcass, arrd  upon  calling   him    he  .followed   me  home as though nothing had happened to disturb his equanimity.    After  the boys heard the story they unanimously agreed that he wa.s indeed a  'dairdv.'"'  A first-class new auto has been'added to AV. E.

A row of  carriages was drawn up outside the  door, but they were baby carriages���������  perambulators, mail carts and-even ,a  small wheelbarrow. ;Inside the hall  a mighty roar greeted the casual  visitor. It was not the babies crying���������they were in the best of spirits���������  hut tire mothers genially discussing  the merits of their respective treasures.  One mother, the proudest woman  in the room, sat in state orr a large  chair, with beautiful triplet girls on  her knee.  Several lots of twins were to be  seen, arrd a pretty little couple dressed in pink would certainly have won.  the prize for the best complexions if  one had beerr offered.  Each baby was labeled with its  mother's name arrd address, the date  of its birth, and the food it had been  brought up on.  Dr. Lawrence, who organized the  show, considers these exhibitions to  be orre of the most radical remedies  for high  infantile mortality.  vrO'l'K'K islioroby given that I'ormin .1.'Sauve  -1-' of ICerenioos. in the Province of British  Columbia, trading; under the inline of I;'. ..I.
