After much del.-iy the question of  V. V. & E. plans to come through the  town of Hedley instead of being forced  by ,the C. P. R. to build across the  Similkameen River, came up before  the Minister of Railways at Ottawa on  Thursday last. ' Over two months ago  the matter Avas brought before the  Minister and he granted approval at  once, but shortly after doing so the  C. P. R. got .after him and he with-  drew the approved which he ha'd  granted: This precipitated the present  fight, in which Hedley took a small  hand by holding the- public meeting  on March 19th, at which a strong resolution Avas carried, and also one from  the Board of Trade, ^iisavoH as the  circulation of petitions,, all of which  it Avill be seen figured prominently in  the discussion.  The Gazette, on behalf of itself and  the town, bows ^icknowleilgement'to  Duncan Ross, M. P., for the able manner in which he championed the case  for the town. It is but proper also in  this connection "to acknowledge the  valuable services of Mr. M. K. Rodgers  in the matter, as he it was "'who really  set. the ball rolling, for in their anxiety  to avoid conflict Avith the C. P. R., the  V. V. & E. engineers, would have  chosen the other side. Mr. Rodgers,  seeing the way the land tlay/,; took- the  matter up,.Avith G. N. 'headquarters at  St. Paul. Otherwise direct ,eutrance  of the railway to. the tcuvn would most  likely have been lost by default, to  the serious injury of the toAvn.  Why the Minister should Jiehave  so. strangely is one of those things  which make one sa*������*little but think a  great deal. .  The NeAvs-Advertiser giA-es the 'following :  "Hon.  Mr. EnimerJjon,- Minister of  Railways, yesterday heard the application  of the Vancouver. Victoria &  Eastern for the ratification of the plan  giving the raihyuy'direct entrance to  the town  of" Hedley, in the Similkameen district.    Lawyer H. B. McGiv-  erin and J. H. Kennedy, Chief Engineer, appeared for the V. V". & E.   The  application  Avas. strongly  opposed by  the Canadian Pacific, Avhich Avants to  force the.  V. V. ������fc E.   to  build across  the river from Hedley and oyer a mile  distant' -from   the   toAvn.     Mr.   Ross,  member   for   Yale-Cariboo,   appeared  for the   citizens  of Hedley and presented petitions from the citizens and  the  Board  of Trade  in  favor of  the  application.    He   made a  strong  plea  for the ratification of tlie   plans and  held that the interest, of the town was  of more important*.' than the  interest  of  an   opposing   raihvay   company,  which  had   no   railway   Avitliin   fifty  miles of  the  town   and  might  never  build one to it."  Miss Lamont Remeiribered  By Her  Pupils.    s  On Tuesday morning, May 1st, Miss  Lamont, teacher, was pleasantly surprised on entering the school room, to  find on ��������� her desk a be'autiful May  basket in the form of a tripod. ' The  shanks of the tripod were sheathed in  ferns and" green mosses and tied at the  apex Avith a knot), of colored ribbon.  Within was'fastened, a pretty basket  filled and garlanded Avith Avild flowers  and mosses, Avhile grouped around the  basket on the teacher's table were  bouquets of wild flowers, and on the  blackboard Avas written ���������' We bring  our garlands for the May Day." ���������  The gift did honor alike, to teacher  and pupils and Avas evidence of the  cordial feeling subsisting betAveen  them. Miss Lamont took charge of  the Hedley school in January last and  'has taught\vith signal success during  the term. The jn-cscnt schoolroom is  bright and cheery, the Avails being  neatly papered Avith light blue ingrain  and :tho V-joint' ceiling1- stained and  varnished. This, Avith the neAV desks  put in during the ternij is evidence  that the Board.-.'have an eye to the  eternal fitness of thing's and are' endeavoring   to   retain the services   of  LOUIS W.

This evidence of ��������� esteem is ' most  gratifying'*'.at this time,' and is an assurance' that the good work being  done by the teacher is appreciated by  pupils and parents." '       ' .  THERE IS NO SHUT-DOWN.  The Daly Reduction Company's Stamp  Mill .Not Idle for,Single Hour, and  Believed to be Turning Out More  "Bullion Than Ever.     * ''.���������*'  ���������It has several times within the past,  month been-broiiglit'to the Gazette's  attention thatreports are"in circulation on the outside that the Nickel  Plate mine is shut "clown fast, aridthat'  the town is.a cemetery in consequence.  Such an impression getting abroad  cannot fail to do incalculable- injury to  the town and it is the.vdnty of everyone interested in the, town who hears  it to give the statement as Avide refutation as lie possibly can, even-if in doing so he has to tell enough of the  truth to make it unpalatableto some.  So far as output of the mine is concerned it is furnishing ore to keep the  millgoing at its full  capacity.  '  It is quite true that the" toAvn is  quieter thaii it has been, and that residents are becoming impatient and censorious.! -. In fact it is hard to get the  one Avi'tiiout the other, for impatience  and censure are apparently inseparable.  On'suclran ore body as the Nickel  Plate or Sunnysicles a 40 stamp null is  not a mill. It is alnere toy. For tAvo  years past it has been an .open secret  that sixty stamps Avere to be added.  Each spring Avas expected to Avit-  ness fulfilment and as the months go  by and the "marking time" is still kept  up it begins to get on the nerves. Heretofore the opening' of spring ahA'ays  did Avitnessan increase in activity, but  here for a month past the waste Avater  has been streaming from the Hume by  two overflows in sight of the town and  fi'Aver machine drills are at development work to use the  compressed air  A party of Great Northern officials,'  says the Spokesman-RevieAv, arrived  in Spokane April 25th. ' The party  cousisted of Louis W. Hill, first vice-  president of the Great Northern, Avho  Avith Benjamin Campbell, fourth vice-  president, and Cal Stone, genera!-passenger and ticket agent of" the Great-  Northern. The party arriA'ed in Mr.  Hills priA-ate car, and left at 0 o'clock  last night for Wenatchee, from Avhere  they will go partly by boat on the  Columbia, river to Oroville,"and i'roin  there make a tour of inspection along  the route of the Vancouver, Victoria  &; Eastern, Avhich is under construction  betAveen Oroville and Princeton, \B. C.  "We have 5000 men at work on ,the  road, and expect to have it completed  to Vancouver Avithin tAvo years; pos-  siblv less," said Mr. Hill. -"Rails have  been laid between Curlew and Midway  and the grading beyond MidAvay is  being pushed as rapidly as possible."  "We found great excitement' in the  coast towns over the San Francisco  disaster," said Mr. Hill, "and a generous spirit of response to the appealfor  aid. -T,don't think there is any need  to worry over' the future of Frisco.  Necessarily a great many business men  lost their fortunes in the fire, but the  .town..will grow ���������again., Right now  -there are some good real, estate bargains there for iheb Avith "���������'money.- I  imagine I would rather invest there  now than in Seattle."  Cal Stone, general passenger and  ticket agent for the company, aa'Iio  was one of the party, stated yesterday  afternoon that the plan of raili*6ad  officials making their trips in automobiles is the best Avay of aA-oiding publicity. "We rode into Tacoma and all  over the toAvn, and the newspapers  never got on to who Ave Avere," said Mr.  Stone. "If Ave had come in Avith a  private car, they Avould have found us ,  before Ave reached the depot." '' '  Mr. Hill's party Avill spend several  days inspecting the construction -work  of the Vancouver, Victoria <fc Eastern,  after which they Avill return to Spokane.  .. ,���������^ ,���������  Work at Voigt's Camp.       ���������" '  METEOROLOGICAL.

The laying off' of men at this  time, when in former years the force  Avas being increased, has no doubt had  much to do Avith the exaggerated reports of suspension that are current  oh theoutside; but the' most exasperating feature is the fact that even 'the  preliminary or preparatory work of  excavating and getting ready 'the :'hfii-������  terial for changes necessary, are not  under way, and that in all probability  the autumn'will" again be here and  find them in the same unprepared con?  dition to face the rigors of" another  winter, or to have works that might  at all be considered.worthy 'the mine.

It would be well for all  to remember that ive are iioav in the  season of the year when it is unlawful"  to set; out fires.  Emil F. Voigt and Mrs. Voigt came  doAvn from Voigt's Camp on Thursday  last and   took   stage   out   on   Friday  morning.    They expect to be  back  in  a i'eAV days.    The visit of Mr. Noble   to  the camp a few Avecksago Avas referred  to by Mr Voigt as an important cA-cnt  in the affairs of Copper Mountain.   Mr  Noble made a thorough   iiiA*estig.*ition  of the whole mountain, examining not  only the dcA-elopmeiit work  done  by  Mr. Voigt for himself   and associates,  but being taken by him to the   Sunset  and all other claims upon which' any  Avork has been done.    It is understood  that much depends   upon   the report  which Mr. Noble Avill make, as to Avhat  future operations will  be.   Should  it  be favorable as it is hoped, it will mean  that the time for Avorking on a larger  scale has come and, that   the   day of  small  things   is past.    Mr Voigt by  confining   his   operations   to   surface  work* in stripping the   formation and  cross-cutting.' the   out-croppings   has  'been able,.-with   a limited amount of  cash;   to   show   large Ixulies   of   ore  and  get   them   ready   for  sampling.  This was much better than to confine  all to a, single shaft, which no matter  how well it   might   turn   out''would  leave too much unproven.   HaAnng accomplished this much by way of showing* up. the-property there Avas no object in continuing surface Avork under  the   disadvantageous     cfrcunistaiices  that had to be contended with  Avhile  this-was being clone, and in all probability the next work will be the histal-  ation of plant to prosecute Avork on a  larger scale.

THE OLD JOHNNY BULL FETICH  The blindness of many excellent people who 'positively will  not see is wonderful to  behold,  ��������� and would be amusing if it were  not for the impatience that invincible stupidity always arouses  The Gazette was reading the  other day in a  trade journal���������  the good  old  Inland  Printer���������  the notes from its, London correspondent dealing  Avith   matters of interest to  the  printing  trade  in  the  united   kingdom.  Speaking of the recent British  elections nnd the stimulus given  thereby to tlie printing trade,  the correspondent   refers incidentally to the fact that in  the  -new parliament some  seventy-  five members  of   the printing  and allied trades  had  Avon   the  coveted honor and privilege  of  Avriting M. P. after their names.  This he regards as-a sure  sign  that  "protection  had  received  its quietus," because these ' seAr-  enty-fiA7e would '"take good care  that American   manufacturers  should be allowed to  hold and  increase the trade  which  they  haAre already established in Gt.  Britain."   There is a sample  of  the trade doctrine of Liberalism  and too many old fogy conservatives in England.   It was also  the doctrine of,Liberals in Canada until the  Conservatives in  this country taught them  better.  A feAv paragraphs farther on  in his notes this correspondent  dips into a grievance that British printers have against American copyright laws and hostile  tariffs���������a grievance that apparently the London printer was  only beginning to find' out after  the Edinburgh printers had put  themselves on record concerning it. This correspondent in  speaking of the manifesto of the  Edinburgh printers, says:  "There is a general condition of discontent and unrest in the trade, and,  as one authority puts it, when it is  considered that there must be something like $1,200,000 of .wages paid in  the year in the printing trade of  Edinburgh, this trade can hardly be  considered "a small matter." What  the printers complain of is that liooks  are set up in America and the plates  are sent to this country. To give a  specific example of how this affects  the tr;ule : Only the other day a printing office in Edinburgh, after having  estimated for a book, the composition  of which came to between $1,250 and  $1,500, had to post the Avork to America, Avhere it is new being set, This  represents a loss of the Avork of fifteen  compositors for twelve Aveeks, to which  extent the men haye lost. The effect  of this arrangement is that when a  British author wishes to secure the  sale of his book in America he has it  set up and produced in that country,  and has copies or stereotyped plates  sent over to this country free of duty.  Whenever such a proceeding takes  place, the British printer, -who' lives  under the same laws that haA'e given  the British author the privilege of  'copyright in this country, loses the  manufacture of a piece of A\*ork Avhich,  previous to the American act, would  have come to him.    What hkmkdy is  TO llli KIH'UKSTKD  FOR TUIS STATIC OF  affairs no one knows, and certainly  the Edinburgh malcontents cannot'influence the* legislators of a foreign  country to pass acts for their pecuniary  benefit, anil so they must keep on  grumbling or else reconcile themselves  to the situation and be thankful that  Avhat is their hiss is their American  brethren's gaii^."  Hoav the Yankee typesetters  Avho read this in the I. P.  must  smile.    " What remedy is to  be  suggested for this state of things,  no one knows," Avails this cockney. . No,' evidently, he,   at all  events, doesn't know ; and  yet  only a few paragraphs  before  he had the remedy at the point  of his pen and didn't recognize  it Avhen he bragged  about  the  quietus Avhich the  seventy-five  printer chaps  were  to give  to  anything resembling protection  which might come up.   During  the late  British  elections   the  Edinburgh'men. endeavored to  make candidates  pledge them-  selves to amend the huv so as to  permit no copyright to be granted for books circulated in Great  Britain unless the book is set tip  and printed in Britain.   One of  the candidates thus   asked to  pledge themselAres Avas the  son  of Lord Roseberry, and he answered that " it Avas a mere question of protection  and beiug a  free trader he could have no  sympathy Ayith such a proposition."    With such blind faith in  a stupid fetich  on  the .part of  men who aspire to be leaders of  public opinion although it  has  time and again, as in  the present instance, been  argued  out  to the',' reduetio ad  absurduni'  it is seen how hard the task that  Chamberlain   has   set himself.  Poor old..Johnny Bull; the only hope for him is that he is too  green to burn.  NOTICE.  Certificate of Improvements'.
