As soon as the result of the sub-  ainendnient was announced the. vote  on the. Turriff amendment, declaring  for a Redistribution Bill and a gen?ral  election, was taken. It received the  suppoitof all the Liberals but Colonel  "McLean, and of four Nationalists,  Achim, Lamarche, Barrett and Guil-  bault.  Tiie division list stood at SI yeas to  117 naves, >i Government majority of  30. When tho vote on the main motion was taken this majority was reduced by the three Nationalists, Belle-  mere, JMondou and Botilay, who voted  against the Turriff amendment; and  who joined the other four in voting  against the second reading. This made  the division list stand 110 to SO, a Government majority of 30. On this division, Colonel McLean again voted with  the Government.  Before the House rose, Premier Borden informed Sir Wilfrid Laurier that  the House would be moved into committee 011 the bill tomorrow. The debate was closed by speeches by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier and Premier Borden  in turn. Both covered much old  ground. Sir Wilfrid announced that  it was the intention of the Opposition  to give the bill all the consideration its  importance merits, while. Premier  Borden announced that it is the intention of the. Government to use every  means at its disposal to press the bill  to A'croirciuPio'ii.       ���������* * ^        ������������������������������������������������������-������������������  PROVINCIAL  LEGISLATURE  Hon.

GREGORY  CIVIL ENG IN KICK and HH1TISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVKVOR  Star Building Princeton  The Dominion Superintendent of  Immigration reports that during 1912  British Columbia received the following:���������British settler*.-, 16.51S; settle-*  from the United States, 2S,CS8; others  11,611, making a total of'56,817.  These figures do not, of course, include the migration of settlers fi-oin  the Middle West and other parts of  Canada, which is very considerable,  and which would bring the total up to  between 75,000 and 100,000.  It is confidently anticipated that the  new policy of the government in giving free land of the province to pre-  emptors, and in surveying their land  free, will do very much towards encouraging settlement and increasing  greatly the large numbers now coming  into the province.

Whether it was an oversight or that  the building policy of the Great Northern in the past few years has made  them a negligible quantity with the  Ii. 0. government is not known but in  his budget speecli while dealing with  the railways under construction, the  Minister of Finance has only the following: Canadian Northern Pacific on  Mainland and Island 600 miles, Canadian Pacific Hail way on Vancouver  Island 70 miles, Pacific Groat Eastern  430 miles, Kettle River Valley 270  miles; Grand Trunk Pacific 702 miles,  Kootenay Central 170 iniles, British  Columbia Central SO miles, others 12  miles, making a total of 2301- miles.  And I may say that for 1500 miles of  these lines tho policy of this government is directly responsible. In addition to these there are seven other  lines upon each of which $10,000 or  more has been spent within the period  required by the act of incorporation.  These huge operations involved arr  actual expenditure of about $25,000,000  during 1012.  The new president of Mexico, Gcner-  eral Huerta, is playing the game that  Mndero should have played but didn't.  (Special Correspondence to tiie Gazette)  Victoria, B. C. Feb. '2Sth.-The estimates for revenue and expenditure, in  the province during the current year,  as well as a' detailed statement of the  financial condition of this country were  laid before the Legislature on Monday  by Hon. Price Ellison, Minister of  Finance, in his third budget speech.  By the estimates of ! 1018-1-1, the revenue for the year is conservatively calculated at $10,326,085.05.. this being a'  decrease of $51.7-15,61 from the revenue  of 1912-18, a fact due' mainly to the  abolition of the poll tax.    .  While in reality a deficit for the  fiscal year just concluded of $2.S43.000  was anticipated, only a. amount of  $145,000 ������������������represented the actual discrepancy between income and expenditure. This was due to the unprecedented activity and prosperity throughout the province, which brought the  revenue receipts up to $10,7-15.709, an  amount showing a net excess of $2,-  553,60S over the original estimates.  In the budget speech delivered hy  Hon. Mr. Ellison optimism was the  predominant note, his summing up,  while short, taking little over on hour,  was both comprehensive and concise.  Tho M'nister first '/'-/erred to the  visit which' the Governor General, the  Duke of Connaught, had paid to the  province dining the past year. This  event he considered to have been one  of the most notable chat had occtired  dining the tenure of the present administration, and a.sidefrom the fact  that the presence of one of the Royal  Household in B. C. had resulted in the  bond of Empire being welded stronger  than ever before, the loyalty which  the people of Canada had displayed  had turned the eyes of the world upon  the western provinces to a degree  greater than ever before.  Referring to the honor of Knighthood which had been conferred upon  the Premier, the speaker said that the  province was quite as much to be congratulated as Sir Richard, he trusted  the knight might live long to en jo j*  the distinction.  "The increase under the head of  education as contained in the estimates" continued the Minister during  the course of his speech "is $202,516.,  and the entire amount will be devoted  to per capita grants to municipalities  and schools in the more remote districts.  Coming  to the  most important department,   that  of  public  works,   we  find   that the  expenditure  in this   regard has  risen from  $S,236,3(i3 to $9,-  057,600, an increase of nearly a million  and a half dollars.    This may appear a.  very  large expenditure,   but the  government  is faced  with  the  fact  that  the rapid development of the province  in   all its districts,   and especially  in  the parts being opened by the Grand  Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern  Pacific   railways,   is absolutely necessary to  provide adequate communication  arid  facilities for  transportation  for settlers.  The    number of  items   under   this  head'are so numerous that it is almost  impossible or   impracticable   to   deal  with them  individually, but it will be  noted  that the   newer parts   of   the  province  have been  catered  to,   and  that the work of development is being  pushed  with energy  and  careful precision.      Among   title   new   buildings  which are to be constructed out of this  year's appropriation are, tho new $75,-  administrative  building at Victoria, a  courthouse at Quesnel $25,000 and an  amount of $165,000 for the completion  of   the   courthouses    at   Vancouver,  Revelstoke and Vernon.   Government  buildings, which are  very much needed, are being provided for and in the  Continued on Pago Three  Hope, Feb. 25.���������Mr. J. II. Kennedy,  chief engineer of the V'., V. Si E. Kail-  way, was in Hope recently and announced that grade construction would  begin at Hope on the first of June,  when a headquarter*, camp will be established.  The survey of the Kettle Valley  Railway to the point of junction with  tho main line of the C.P.R. is completed. The survey party will now return to the Coquihalla Valley to run  alternative lines. The camp will remain probably at the Kawkawa Lake.  The Canadian Northern tracks have  now reached a point two and a half  miles southwest of the Yale tunnel,  where they must wait for the completion of a pile bridge. ..Beyond that  point the next delay will be waiting  for the bridge over Anderson Creek.  $50,000 and Work Will Start,  at Once  SIMILKAMEEN   GETS $375,000  The Appropriation is Highest  Ever Obtained for the District  Last week the Gazette announced  from meagre reports appearing in the  dailies that the appropriation for  Siinilkanieen would be $210,000 and  indicated also that when the full  estimates were examined it would be  found to exceed that sum. A belated  telegram which was delayed over 21  hours in transmission or delivery  reached us too late for last issue. It  showed that the appropriation would  reach $375,000  In addition to the district vote of  $210,000 there is $70,000 for bridges,  road machinery, surveys etc.; $120,000  for auto highway Hope to" Princeton  of which Similkameen gets half: and  the salaries and .other items will account for $35,000 more, making the  handsome total of $375,000 which exceeds any previous year hy $85,00(1.   <  It pays to have a representative  like L. W. Shatford who never forgets his constituency.  RUSHING WENATCHEE BRANCH  (Oroville Gazette.)  J. W. Osborn, J. .1. Moak and other  Spokane men' have taken a.bond on  the Waterloo and Fontenoy group of  claims at Camp McKinney, B. C, 14  miles northwest of Molson, for the  consideration of $50,000 from Dr. C.K.  Merriani, Patrick u. Shine and the  heirs of the late Benjamin Merrick,  the original owners. The new proprietors will start operations as soon as  the weather will permit.  The Waterloo under the management of Dennis Clark produced about  $10,000 in gold. The mine has been  idle for several years, however, as it  was discovered that the vein dipped  into the Fontenoy property.  The mines are equipped with a 10-  stninp mill and adequate hoisting machinery, costing about $16,000 which  are driven by water power. ' A three  mile Hume has recently been constructed. There are about 500 tons of  ore on the dump ready for treatment,  and the new owners intend to start  operations as soon as possible. It  will require from three to four weeks  to put the machinery in shape and to  pump the water out of the mine. A  huge number of men will be employed  so as to push the development as rapidly as possible under the personal  direction of Mr. Moak.  The reviving of this one time famous boundary camp will be watched  with a great deal of real interest and  many of the old timers still hold that  McKinney has the making of a fine  producer of gold. *  ORGANIZING FOR   EGG MARKET  Hon.   Martin  Burrell   Makes   Important  Appointment  (Oroville Gazette)  Hurry   up seems   to be the  order of  the  day  on   the   construction  of the  Oroville-Wonatehee   branch of  the G.  N.      The   tradelaying    machine    has  reached u point several miles'south o'f  Tonasket  and is pushing steadily forward.     Supplies  for the construction  are being rushed here and to the front.  Ten  cars of rails  were   in   the yards  here    Wednesday and  more   on   the  way.      The    contractors    have   rails  enough  on hand   now for from ten to  twelve miles of track laying, and they  have a plentiful supply of ties as well.  It is understood that a third construction   train to   handle the  material between Oroville and the working end of  the line will be put on the first of next  week.    It  i.s evident from every indication   that work on   the construction  of the  branch is to be rushed forward  as   rapidly  as possible,   and this gives  hopes of an   early  completion  of the  line.

During the past' year .the Live Stock  Brunch of the Department of Agriculture has been engaged in a preliminary  investigation of the Canadian Egg  Trade. Certain facts relating to the  enormous loss that is charged back  against the farmer and the unsatisfactory status of the trade as a whole  have been collected and presented in  Bulletin No. 16, entitled "The Care of  Market Eggs." Realizing, however,  the necessity of securing more detailed information before inaugurating  any policy having for its object the  bringing about of improvement in the  condition of the business, the Minister  of Agiicultuie has authorized the appointment of J. H. Hare, B.S.A., of  Whitby, to undertake the necessary  investigation.  Mr.  Hare has  held  the  position  of  District   Representative   in    Ontario  County, Out.,   for the past four years.  He   was born   at Cobourg,   Out.,  and  received   his   early   training   on   the  farm.     He entered  the Ontario Agriculture College   in 1904 and graduated  in 190S.      Since taking  up the District  Representative work in Ontario County he has  devoted much time and has  been   very  successful in the organization   of co-operative  egg circles.    Not  only has   he paid  particular attention  to conditions of  the egg trade' as they  exist in the  inral districts, but he has  also   made  a   close study  of  poultry  business   in general   and   has   written  numerous  articles,   among which is a.  bulletin   now  in press.     By  virtue of  his technical training and his practical  experience Mr. Hare is, therefore-, well  qualified   as   a   specialist   in   poultry-  work.  Mr. Hare will first be concerned  with the collection of all data that is  available on the grading of eggs as  they have been received at wholesale  produce houses of Canada during the  past two years. The information thus  obtained will be used to form a basis  for such action as may be taken by'  the Government in initiating a movement to improve and properly regulate the trade.  Mr. Hare will he. located at Ottawa,  but will travel extensively throughout  the Dominion, first in the east and  later in the west.  Phoenix has again won the Boundary hockey championship although  Grand Forks gave them a hard run  for it. Tt took the last match in the  series to decide it and the score in the  game stood 4 to 3.

'People who will comport  themselves as the majority of the electors did in January had best be left to  stew in their own fat.  That Sir Wilfrid Laurier is fast  dropping bark into the commonplace,  was amply ili'inonsli ated in his speech  on the second reading of the naval  hill. All he had to say was a mere  rehash of what had already been  given in the debate on the resolution  and on the second reading by speakers  who had preceded him and there was  not a single argument advanced by  him that had not time and again been  knocked higher than Gilderoy's kite.  His attitude on the question is bound  to make him lose caste with his own  party in Britain for it is clearly an insult to the Asquith administration to  have him slight the import of the  Admiralty memorandum in the manner in which both he and his followers  saw fit to do during the progress of  the debate.  For years Great Britain has been  groping about in ������carch of an educational policy or system that will be  more in accord with the spirit of the  times and enable the rising generation  to obtain the training that will best  fit them to hold their own with all  with whom they may come iu contact.  If they want the simplest solution of  the difficulty, the end for which they  should strive will best be reached by  persuading the government to prescribe Price Collier's new book ���������'England and the English" as a national  text-book to lie taught in the schools,  proclaimed from the pulpits and lecture platforms and studied by the  representatives in parliament. The  writer is an American who is the  keenest of keen observers, a sound  political economist and an eminently  fair man. His presentation of statistics  i.s almost startling and he has held up  to Johnny Bull a looking-glass into  which he will do well to gaze until he  gets the picture hy heart. Tf he does  it will do him a world of good. The  writer of the hook is no carping critic  with a dislike for the people about  whom he writes, but the very opposite.    Where   he points  out faults he  In the last issue of the B. C. Engineering and Mining Record which  came to hand last week we note, that  atteutii^-i is given to Oh/is. II. Brookes  ���������and a red hot roast it was. The Record took iip'the Brookes ads thai appealed in the Vancouver World and'  after administering to the World-a  backhander for it's too great readiness  to publish the. ads. of swindlers it deals  seriatim with many of the misrepresentations contained therein and shows  c -  Mr. Brookes to be several different  kinds of liar. But what is the good of  it all, coming at this late date���������several  weeks after the fakir had taken his  flight, and too late to save anybody in  the Province from falling a victim to  the wiles of the man he is dressing  down. If we remember' right it was  early in October when Brookes left  Hedley for Victoria, and as early as  our second issue in September t he Gazette had published the story of his  arrest.in Oroville by deputy maish.-il  Myers and his subsequent escape to  British Columbia. In that story we  gave in full Brookes' explanation of  the circumstance and also the version  of Brookes' solicitors, lawyer Fitzgerald of Oroville, and L. HI Patten.  After going to Victoria in October  Brookes stayed at the Empress hotel  and from there numerous letters and  telegrams came back to Hedley from  him telling of all the dead things he  had killed and was Hilling which the  Gazette poked' fun at, and it is funny  the editor of the Record did not get a  line on him about that time instead of  coming in at the tail of the procession  now in a sort of "Betsy, *.ye killed the  bear" fashion. So far as coast papers  were concerned it was only the News-  Advertiser which started in to do any  detective work and spoiled his game  before he got off with all the swag be  had laid out to capture, although it  must not be forgotten that most of  the other papers creditably refused to  further lend their aid to him after  they were, put in possession of the  facts produced by the News-Advertiser.  If a monthly magazine is too slow a  vehicle to keep up with or head off a  sharper as nimble as this one was,  there were weeklies and dailies open  to the Record editor and to several  other publicists who purvey mining  intelligence but who failed also to give  a word of warning while this nefarious thing was going on and the mining industry was being injured by it.  There is an old adage which tells of  the futility of locking the stable after  the horse is stolen, but in this case  there is not even any evidence that  the stable is being locked or that someone else cannot come in a few weeks  hence with a similar fake scheme  while the mining exchange and the  mining publicists are sitting with their  thumbs in their mouths and no effort  being made to stop it. If the conn*  deuce of the investing public is to be  obtained for mining enterprises it is  high time that some sane organization  be effected by which the mining exchanges, the press and the Mines Department will work together to head  off nefarious schemes and put the public in possession of facts that they  should know.  TRY THE  Hedley   Gazette  FOR  Fine Job  Printing  If the business people of Medley and !  ! Keremeos and property-holders gener-1  i ally want a paper in this part of the j  valley to advocate their interests they  will have to buck up a great deal better in the matter of advertising and  support generally than ,lhey are doing.  This ''week the Gazette contains a  good twelve columns of local reading matter <)iit of twenty and it, is a  generally refii'igni/.ed' rule among publishers that the minimum, amount of  advertising to reading matter which  will justify "a. publisher to continue  production of a. paper is about three  and a half columns of advertising to  two columns.of reading matter. This  paper has never accepted an inch of  advertising from any outside department store, and yet there are local  store-keepers and business places generally in Hedley and Keremeos that  do not' patronize its, advertising  columns and., growl about residents  sending orders out to department-  stores because of advertisements of  those department stores which they  see in other,papers. 'Let'readers' scan  these, columns.and see. the number of  those who are in business and not represented by ail ad. large or small cto  show that they are in business, arrd if  outsiders judge a place by the ads-in  the local paper as they are known to  do, they will conclude that there is  nothing in Hedley but one jeweller,  two hotels, one barber, one ������������������blacksmith shop, one livery-stable, a bank  and two or three stores aiid all other-  kinds of business or trades are unrepresented in the town. In Keremeos  they will see that there is only one.  store which is at Keremeos Centre,  two hotels, one of which is at the  Centre; one livery stable at the Centre  and a land company in Keremeos.  No bank, no stores except a Chinese  silk store and all other businesses unrepresented, waiting for somebody to  come anil start up. Then in the matter of subscriptions there are property-  holders by the dozen either borrowing  the paper from their neighbors, or doing without, and they expect the local  paper to live on nothing and keep the  claims of the towns and district before  the public so as to make their property more valuable. Now we wish to  point out that when the cost of issuing  a paper exceeds the revenue therefrom, its publisher is justified in closing it down and using his plant for job  printing alone and the advertising of  his own printing business. The Gazette claims the right to exercise that  privilege whenever the conditions  warrant him in doing so, and without  further warning or advice from any  one it will be done whenever we see  fit to do so. The office is equipped  with a. plant sufficient for a town of  3000 inhabitants and can turn out  work that will compare with the'best  city offices, and we do not propose to  wear it out printing a paper in a no-  paper town or community.  WHY WE HAVE GOOD ROADS  Government Gives The Province A Most  ���������Valuable Asset  British Columbia's advanced road  building policy is disposed of by the  Minister of Finance in his budget  speech in a very few words but they  are words which tell a great deal. He  said:  "Added to railway construction we  have had an expenditure by the Government of $5,000,000 for roads and  bridges with a-mileage of 1500 miles of  new roads and 1500 iniles of improved  roads."  Col. Sam Hughes, Minister of Militia, has declared for no canteens.  The naval bill passed the second  reading with a majority of 30.

Neatly executed business stationery  is a powerful aid in annexing profit-  ahle ordeis. The Gazette is well  til-nipped to supply it.  Sam Danoil* of Nelson was a visitor  to Hedley last week. Mr. Dano'H' has  an eye on the Similkameen valley and  is acquiring land interests here.  Mr. Gillespie, 91 years of age, a  rancher on Rock Creek Mountain and  at one. time the keeper of a wayside  liou.se,was taken to Greenwood for examination as tci his sanity.  .Superintendent G. P. Jones has had  his auto repainted from thu maroon of  last year Lo a pea green and he. had it  out on Sunday but the icy condition  of the streets forbade the. execution of  figure eights or other fancy stunts.  Arthur Vance returned on Monday's  train from Nighthawk where he had  been staying for ten days on a ranch  after leaving tho hospital. He has  made rapid recovery during the time  and intends going to work again this  week.  There was a "hard times" dance in  Fraternity hall on Friday night last  which was well attended. Tt was a  modification of the social function  which was Lo have been held on the  ice a couple of weeks ago or more, but  the. milder weather compelled it to be  called oif then.  Tf every letter that goes out of Hedley were enclosed in an envelope hearing an ad setting forth the advantages  of the town or a map showing its location Hedley would be much bettor'  known than it is. It is never too late  to mend; begin it now. The Gazette  has gone to considerable expense to  supply facilities for doing this.  What is more deep-seated than corporate obstinacy? Because of it the  connection at Midway for exchange of  freight between the C. P. It. and the  Great Northern is still unmade. That  is surely a question for the Boards of  Trade in the Boundary and Similkameen to get busy on. Determined  and concerted action should secure the  assistance of the Railway Commission.  seemed to pass and there is a possibility that it may pull through. Chief  Charlie is noted for the "fine class of  horses he keeps .mil this 'team is one  of his best. Those 'who saw the runaway say that it was a fierce one while  it lasted.  The Gazette was both pleased alnd  interested to receive last week a ropy  of the annual report of the Hudson  Bay Mines Limited with mines in Cobalt, Out. Mr. A.H. Brown, who was  the first metallurgist in the works in  Hedley and who did the pioneer work  in solving the pioblem of treatment  of Nickel Plate ores, is the general  manager of the Hudson Bay Mines  and he has made a wonderful  showing. .Tiie high grade ore goes  .is high as 8,-131.(10 ozs of silver per ton  anil-the concentrates 855.73 o/.s silver  per- ton. Five dividends were paid  during the year totalling $200,-101.22.  The total revenue for the year was  $531,052.51 and the total expenditure'  $22-1,601.00 showing a gain from revenue account of $30(5,417.82. When  the gain for the year exceeds the total  expenditure by that amount things  are indeed in a healthy condition.  PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  G. H. Turner intends giving instructions to a class that is about to take  Up the running of automobiles. To  make the instruction as practical as  possible and have practice and theory  blended in proper proportions he is  going to procure a machine for members of his class to' practice on. This  will give many young men in Hedley  an opportunity of acquiring a useful  art at a- moderate rate and enable  them to do so without loss of working  time on their part.  When John Martin went up at constable Spron'le's request to see whether  Danny McLaughlin was all right he  found Danny holding the fort with a  reasonably well-stocked larder and a  supreme indifference as to whether-  the Turks were getting thrashed out of:  their boots or dynasties were turning  somersaults in Mexico. Whether  Danny got a tip from the bear on  .groundhog day is not known, but in  the zero snap which followed very  shortly thereafter he remainL'd in close  affiliation with his wood-pile and his  grub supply.  The drop in the price of copper has  precipitated the inevitable readjustment of the wage scale and before the  end of the past month the usual notice was served here that after and beginning witii the first of March the  old wage scale would be reverted to.  It now transpires that the Nickel  Plate miners have got one mouth the  bestiof it as the Granby change hack  Lo tin' old scale took effect for the  month of February. Of course the  agreement made for this sliding scale  was that the wage scale and the price  of copper went, hand in hand and each  readjusted the other automatically  and as the price of copper was below  10 cents during February the wage  scale on that basis was $3.50 per day  for miners.  A bad runaway occurred on Haynes  street on Monday afternoon when a  team belonging to Chief Charlie Allison started from Schubert's store and  ran westward past the Great Northern  hotel." Before they had got very far  they left the road and ran with full  force into a free. The rig wa.s badly  demolished and one of the horses appeared to be so badly injured that it  was thought it would have to be killed, for it seemed to be paralyzed and  was unable, to stand. Later on we  understand   the  effects of  the injury  Continued from Pago one'  Nicola district $25,000 will  be spent in  this regard,   and at Prince Rupert an  outlay of $100,000 is necessary.  "Our expenditure for the ensuing  year will be the largest on record,"  proceeded the Minister, "the amount  which is to be spent was almost unthinkable ten years ago, aiid will be  much in excess of the estimated revenue, hut we are building for the  future, and the government deems it  wiser to anticipate the requirements  of rapid 'development in the way of  improvements than to wait and impede progress of settlement. Thousands of immigrants of the best class  aro flocking through the doors which  British Columbia has thrown open  to the world, and the process of milking our natural resources a source of  wealth to the province and to its  people is well under way. We are doing a 'preliminary "ivork, a pioneer-  work, and I feel that with the foundation that has been laid those who  come after us will benefit and enjoy  by such provisions.  In regard to the- taxation policy pursued by the present government, Hon.  Mr. Ellison pointed out four important  changes made by the Royal Commission on taxation, which would undoubtedly redound to the benefit of  settlers, and people of the province  generally. These were, the exemption  of improvements 'from taxation, 'tiie  abolition of the poll tax, the readjustment of the personal property tax,  and the abrogation of the personiil  property tax. The poll tax which is  already abolished, would entail a loss  of revenue of about $350,000 per annum,  the other recommendations of the  commission would be met with as the  condition's warranted, within the next  four years.  Referring to the agricultural, conditions attendant upon the year's administration, the Minister stated that  the production for the past twelve  'months was valued conservatively at  $22.4-12.-112 or an increase of more than  a million dollars over 1911. The rapid  progress of this industry he modestly  thought' might lie attributed to the  department of agriculture, which had  done a great deal of work in promoting and supervising the culture of  fruit trees, etc.  The yield of apples exceeded that of  1911 by over 12,000,000 pounds, and  other fruits and berries also increased,  to the extent of 300 per cent. Despite  the increase of crops over three million  pounds more fruit was imported than  in 1911. The increase in live stock  production is about $SI0,()00, tho  amount being accounted for by ihc  activity of the. poultry industry. It is  also pleasing to note the quality of the  stock kept, and it is anticipated that  the whole of the northern interior  will bo largely devoted to stock-raising.  The mining industry in 1912 saw the  highest record for production, the  estimated total being $32,000,000 in  excess of the previous highest total of  1910. Of this gold makes up about.10  percent., coal and coke 33 percent.,  copper 25 per cent., aud other products  including metalliferous and structural,  the balance.  Last year's lumber cut was also the  largest on record, although the actual  profit on the year's operation was not  as great as that of the previous year.  A conservative valuation of the cut i.s  $19,000,000. Prospects in this department are very bright, and those engaged in it are looking forward to the  preferential trade arrangement between Canada and Australia, whereby  a, large market it is thought will be  afforded.  , Hon. Mr. Ellison, stated that in  'view of the fact that a great many  English companies were preparing for  fishing with extensive plants on the  Pacific coast, the prospects for a per-  'inanoy in the industry were better  than in years.' As for the production  of the last year it was greater than  any year since 1905, 990,170 eases of  salmon,being put up at a valuation of  about $10,000,000.  Ac-tinu on the advice of the member  for Siinilkanieen,'Hon. W.J. Bowser,  the attorney-general, has included a  section iu the bill to amend the Provincial Game Act, which allows free  miners engaged in prospecting, to kill  deer for food for their own use, providing a permit i.s fiist secured from  the Provincial Game Warden, such  permits slating the number of deer to  he killed and the tenuie of the same.  The. clause reads as follows, "The  Provincial Game Warden may give  permits to resident farmers, free  miners actually engaged in prospecting, and Indians in organized districts  Lo kill deer for food for their own use,  and such permits shall state the nnin-  he of deer that may lie killed and the  length of time that the pel son receiving the permit will be allowed to keep  deer meat in his possession."  Formerly prospectors were not  allowed lo shoot these animals out of  the 'regular game season, and the  clause will 'be a boon to those men,  whom Mr. Shatford points-out are  the real pioneeis  of  the  country  and  i  in   lu-iiig-  one of the foremost  classes  ing about development.  Another clause in the act calls for a  heavy fine for anyone found hunting  with a. pump action or iiutomatic gun.  The Act to aiyend the Motor Traffic  Regulation Act, which is another  piece, of wise legislation, provides for  very severe penalties for joy riders or  others who are found driving automobiles under the influence of liquor.  Jt was found that in" the cities of the  Province many deaths had resulted  from this cause during the past year  aiid it became necessary lo stop the  evil.  Mr, Parker Williams, Mr. McGowen  Mr. Fraser, Mr. Hay ward and Mr.  Place are among the members who  participated in the debate on the  budget.  ���������*  SEE OUR  They Are Now  COMING IN  Wc have already opened up some lines of  LADIES' BLOUSES  HOSIERY  HOUSE DRESSES, etc.  which arc going fast.

William Haining was up from the  lower valley for a few days last week.  He reports having given an option on  his claim at Hedley for one year.  Tom Anderson and Ed. Wheadon,  afte r having a holiday as 'they say in  Hedley, passed through cm their way  to "Vasseaux to be ready for the road  work.  The contractors, who built the house  of Mr. R.C. Clark last summer, arrived  in town Monday and will now proceed  to erect a find residence for Mr. F. B.  Gibson.  Mrs. Parrel and her two children,  Bessie and Tim, came in last Friday  from Rossland to renew old acquaintances and spend a few days in the  district.  At the Westminster hotel. Spokane,  on February 27th, by the Very Rev.  Canon Bliss, Donald McCalliun. Keremeos, B. C, and Ethel A. Patterson,  Cato'nsville, Mel.  The dance last Friday was a great  success. Although not many from the  outside were present the number that  turned out from the immediate vicinity was surprising and a real jolly  evening was spent. The dance bioke  up about 3 o'clock.  A. A. Derrick and his bride, the  missing parties'of the elopement act,  arrived in town last week but on hearing what was to become of Mr. Rudd  hit back across the line to await further developments. Hen rim; that there  was nothing against him he crossed  the line once more. May we offer you  both our congratulations.  Don't forget the packing school. It  is to be held in Keremeos this year  again and will begin on Monday,  March 11th, at 11 a.m.. to be conducted for one week hy J. Gibb from the  Department of Agriculture. Much  benefit was derived by those taking  advantage of former courses and all  who intend to join the class this year-  should be on hand in good time.  Quite a number of men have been  turned back of late by the Customs  Officer here. These men were all  hooked to work for the G.N. Railway  contractors at Tulameen. This action  was the outcome of injustice practised  upon the men by the contractors. It  appears, so the men relate, that notices  are out on the boards of employment  agents in Spokane that many laborers  are wanted on construction work on  the G. N. We suppose they pay their  dollar, or whatever it is, and are shipped out to work. When they get on  the job some get in a few days and  then are fired wholesale and another  bunch arrives, these again are fired  and so the work goes on. There must  be some graft somewhere and the  sooner it is stopped the better for all  concerned.  Some very instructive demonstrations and lectures were held last  Thursday. A pruning demonstration  was given at Mr. J. J. Armstrong's  ranch by M. S. Middleton, B.S.A., he  also went thoroughly into details regarding planting plans, fillers, mixed  planting, laying out an orchard and  many other subjects relative to the.  growth and culture of trees. In the  afternoon lectures were delivered by  B.

YOU WANT THE BEST  IT ALWAYS FAYS 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.  f  There is just as good Avork 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 locvil freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he i.s obliged to charge as inuch or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of work.  THE   HEDLEY  GAZETTE  is prepared- to  do any kind of work that may come along.  No order too small and none too large.
