HEDLEY, -B.-C.  Grand Union  Hotel       -  HEDLEY, B. C.  HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  Tn "the discussion on the coal strike  that occurred a short time ago in the  Commons, it Avas shoAvn that many of  the ills complained of by the miners  arose from causes for Avhich the operators Avere in no Avay responsible. One  of them Avas the impossibility to get  cars from the railway companies to  haul away the coal when mined.  Frank Oliver produced data to sIioav  that in many cases the operators could  onlyi get cars enough to keep their  mines going at full capacity for one  and a half days in each month. s  Eastern members, during the discussion, condemned the hand-to-month  Avay in AA'hich Avestern coal mines Avere  operated, and blamed the operators  and railways for failing to keep a sufficient reserve supply of coal stored up,  as had invariably been the custom in  the east. The answer made to this  A\*as that in the Avest there Avas not yet  sufficient accumulated capital to, enable operators to keep a reserve supply  stored, up.  The shortage of rolling stock on all  roads operated in the Avest, has so long  been complained of that it is a Avonder  the raihvays have not long before this  taken more A'igorous steps to overcome  the difficulty hy providing more.

With the shipment came  also the fine three year old imported  Clydesdale-mare, Lady Dudley (100-1).  Last year they imported from Scotland the-3 year colt Strathbogie (Vol.  XArn) which is this year a stallion of  great Aveight and substance and active  in movement. His pedigree embraces  some of the hest blood of this far-  famed breed.  They have also brought from Ontario a. choice* Shorthorn hull calf for  J. S McLean and a Galloway bull for  J as.

HOTEL PENTICTON  Headquarters for Tourist Travel.  Kates Moderate.  A. Bahnes, Prop.  Pkntigton, B.C.  Judge BroAvn Avho succeeded Judge  Clement on the elevation of the latter  to the Supreme Court, made his first  trip into the Similkameen last week,  and found us all a very peaceable lot  of people, there being no litigation for  him to adjudicate upon.  Word has reached Hedley thatH. A.  Shatford, father of L.W. Shatford, M.  P. P., died at his home at Hubbard's  Cove, N. S., on Saturday, April 27th.  A stroke of paralysis (the third) Avas  the cause of ailment. The sympathies  of their many friends in Similkameen  and Okanagan are extended to the  Messrs. Shatford.  "Those Avho expected that the House  would complete its business this Aveek,  did not count on the desire of the Socialists to make all men stop work by  Act of Parliament, nor the natural  Avish of the Opposition to hit someone  who can't hit back. The A'ictim on  this occasion Avas Mr. Babcock, the  Fishery Commissioner, Avho being unable by virtue of his position os a Government servant to defend himself,  Avas a fair mark for John Oliver, who  devoted an afternoon to a vicious personal attack upon hini, demanding Mr.  Babcock's instant dismissal.  The leader of the Opposition again  beAvailed what he called tlie inadequate  appropriation made for Rossland in  the estimates and was poorly comforted by the Finance Minister's piomise  to look into the question'during the  year. ��������� ������������������ ���������������������������-.;        ���������  The Act toconstitute ;i Court of Appeal passed its second reading by a  large majority, only.. Oliver, Jardine  and three Socialists voting against it.  The estimates Avereatlast completed  after a long and bitter discussion. The  superannuation item was fiercely opposed by the Socialists, Avhose leader,  Mr. HaAvthorntliAvaite, had distinguished himself on the previous afternoon by a fierce attack upon the  Canadian militia, whom he termed  "murderers."  The vote of $15,000 for immigration  purposes raised another roar from the  Sons of Rest, as the Socialists are getting to be named around the House.  They each and all attacked the Salvation Army, and ministers of religion  generally.  The statement made by the Hon. R.  G. Tatlow at the close of Wednesday  afternoon's session, Avith respect to the  proposed increase in timber royalties,  Avas of the highest importance, and  has met Avith universal approval.  While it had been the intention of the  Government to have the ne-AV royalty  come into force on the 1st of January,  1908, several circumstances, unforeseen  at the time of the framing of the, measure, have combined in such a way as  to make it abundantly certain that the  increase of the royalties on timber at  so early a date as next January would  AA'ork a most serious and unjust hard-  snip upon a very important industry.  Chief among these circumstances is  the fact that, owing to the unprecedented congestion of traffic caused by  the abnormally severe Avinter, the  Canadian Pacific raihvay cannot possibly handle more than a bare fifty per  cent, of the orders to be filled hy the  lumbermen. Those in the know say  that Mr. Marpole is over-optimistic  even in these Ioav figures, and that 10  per cent, is more likely to be the extreme limit of the railroad's capacity.  The situation and its inevitable consequences Avere clearly laid before the  Government by Mr. Thomas Taylor,  member for Revelstoke, and by others,  With the result that the Hon. Mr. Tat-  Ioav and his colleagues, recognizing the  argument contained in the usual condition of transportation facilities  brought about through natural agencies, decided to postpone the increase  of the timber royalties for the year  later. The proposal to increase Avill,  hoAvever, be brought before the House  next session, and Avill probably go into  effect early in 190S; and the acting  Premier, in giving notice of the Government's determination on Wednesday, publicly Avarned all concerned to  make their future arrangements to  take the proposed increase into account.  The incident is not without interest,  apart from its commercial side, as an  illustration of the fearless statesman-  Dwellers in the; Similkameen  who  Avere disposed to be someAvhat despondent as the result of the disbandment  of the gang of V. V. & E. surveyors  under Mr. Milliken, and on account of  other   delays   and   disappointments,  'were-'not a little re-assured to note the  .opinions of Chief Engineer Hogeland  in Seattle, who, iiiansAver toinquiries  regarding the rumors that Avere afloat  "as to temporary;-abandonment-of the  work of construction of the V. V. &��������� E.  in British Columbia, said that his coin-  parly had no intention   whatever of  deferring the Avork until later.   Delays  he said had occurred,  and Aver������ likely  still to occur,  as the result of unforeseen difficulties, but notAvithstanding  these it Avas the intention of the Great  Northern to push on the Avork as fast  as  circumstances Avould permit,  and  that the public Would do Avell to pay  no attention to  any rumors to the  contrary.  This is certainly re-assuring, and it  is hoped that the Seattle neAA'spaper  which contained the intervieAv had  him '--reported- accurately. That difficulties, often serious in character, and  many of theni beyond their control,  have incessantly occurred to delay  matters is very well knoAvn in this  portion of the district. Sometimes it  Avas shortage of labor; other times  material Avas lacking, and again the  coal miners' strikes cutting off their  fuel supply and laying up their engines, repeatedly brought the work to  a stand-still uutil iioav another crisis is  reached in the probability of some  $60,000 Avorth of grade put in last year  being Avashed out, because of inability  to have it protected in time to saA-e it  from the" high water.  Had the steel and bridge gangs been  able to have made even'half the progress that would be expected of them  under ordinary circumstances, there  Avould have been ample time to have  protected this piece of Avork, but at  present the outcome is vieAved Avith no  little anxiety on the part of those Avho  are most anxious to see the work proceed at a more rapid rate.  SETTLING THE  COAL ST  Conciliation Board Sitting  This Week.  MULOCK THIRD ARBITRATOR  Operators Pig-headed and Miners Wanr  tonly Offensive ��������� Reduced Schedule  Posted Gives Miners Excuse They  Were Looking For.  ' The conference held last week failed  to effect any basis of settlement, the  representatives of the two contending  factions failing eA-en  to agree upon a  REACHED  THE BRIDGE.  V. V.&E. Rails at Armstrong Bridge���������  Pile-driver   Now   Pounding  Down the Piles.  ship Avhich has been a distinguishing  Continued on Page Four.  The track of the V. V. & E. reached  the Armstrong bridge on Saturday-  night, and on Monday the pile-driver  had got down to Avork on the piles of  the southern approach. There Avill be  no delay for material, Avhich is said to  be all on hand, and construction trains  are bringing it fo'rAvard. When sufficient material has been delivered at  the bridge by the construction trains  the track engine Avill go back to assist  the ballasting engine at some Avork  betAveen Molson and Oroville.  It appears that Avhen the ballasting  Avas done betAveen Molson and OroA'ille  the frost Avas in the ground and much  of the Avork has to he done over again.  To put the track in proper shape and  do some filling in, about 30.000 yards  of graA'el will be necessary, but the  ballasting train, Avith the assistance of  the track-laying engine, will have ample time to do this and to complete  ballasting right up to the bridge by  the time the bridge is ready for the  track.  It is reported that a mixed train will  be run daily to NighthaAvk in a feAV  days and that Royer's stage Avill make  its southern terminus at NighthaAvk  instead of at Oroville, and thus avoid  the hard climb over Richter's pass'.  So far as completion of the track to  Keremeos is concerned, all depends on  time, taken to put in the bridge at  Armstrong's. It is not Avell to expect  completion of this bridge, spans and.  all, in less than four Aveeks, although  it may be possible to run trains over  false Avork in two Aveeks, provided the.  river does not get too high and sweep  the false Avork aAvay before the spans  aie completed. If the luck has taken  a turn and they should keep on travelling in luck for the next month they  may make it, and reach Keremeos by  the middle of June. j  third man to sit upon the Board, Avhich  made it necessary for the government  to exercise that duty. This they did  by appointing Judge Mulock from the  Court of Exchequer.  The board is composed of L. P. Eckstein on behalf of the miners, and J.L.  Parker on behalf of the CrOAv's Nest  operators, AA'ith Mulock as chairman.  At Calgary, Parker will drop .out and  his place will be taken by, B. F. Smith  Avho Avill represent the Alberta-' coal  operators.  The bone of contention upon which  they have been and are'chowhig is the  claim of the operators that the men  must return to Avork before negotia-.  tions can proceed. The men contend  on tht! other hand that the notice wi'tli "  wage schedule posted by the operators  at the camp cabins at Coal Creek and  Michel AA'ere a "red rag" challenge  Avhich they accepted by going out. .  When these tAvo notices Avere posted,  the miners had them re-printed and  scattered broadcast through the camps  to incite the men to strike, although  the notices AA'ere in themselves merely  a compliance Avith the statute.  The presence of Mackenzie King and  his assumption of the boss-ship of the  Avhole job of settlement is said to he  resented alike by miners and operators. Lindsay is as pig-headed and  uncompromising as usual and President Sherman displays the spirit of an  ignorant A'andal Avho is unconcerned  at the wide-spread loss and suffering  that his ill-advised conduct has precipitated. LeAA'is and other Yankee officials are also on the ground asserting  the right to stick in their oar, and  Canadians are thereby humiliated Avith  the sight of their household affairs-  being interfered with by irresponsible  foreigners.  Oh for a Theodore Kruger to arrive  on the scene with a knout and thrash  a little sense into the Avhole bunch.  FAIRVIEW   NOTES.

The increased price of lumber through  the Avest has generally' been blamed  by the niill-men upon the high price  which thev have to pay the loggers,  but they dont appear to have been  able to convince everybody that this  contention on their part Avas the. correct one, and, as a result, the committee of the Commons of which Thus.-  Green way Avas chairman Avas appointed to investigate, Avith the result already mentioned. Meanwhile in British Columbia the lumbermen haA'e put  up a very strong fight against increase  of the timber dues from 50 cents per  thousand to 75 cents per thousand, as  provided for in an amendment to the  Land Act submitted to the legislature  at the session just closed; It Avas a  government measure and could have  been eurried.through as such, although  in view of the fact that the raihvays  could not be counted on to handle  more than 50 per cent of the. output of  the mills and the lumbermen Avould  suffer severe loss in consequence, it  Avas deemed fair.on the part of the  goA'ernmenttolay the question over for  a year, after Avarning all concerned  that the matter Avould be brought up  next session and aa-ouIcI come into  effect early in 190S. Many Avill remember that during the last campaign Smith Curtis announced that if  he Avere elected he. Avould haA'e the  royalty increased from 50 cents per  thousand to .$1.50 per thousand ; but  when the lumbermen made their kick  about it being increased to 75 cents,  the Liberal members took, sides Avith  the kickers.  Mr. R. L. Borden put the goA'ern-  meiit in a bad box Avhen he moved bis  resolution condemning the organized  system of corrupt practices in elections  such as those revealed in the city of  London, and recommending amendment of the laAV to prevent the continuance of bribery, personation, ballot  sav'itching and similar frauds. The  government and its supporters voted  against the resolution as one man. The  most deplorable point in connection  Avith the debate Avas that the Liberal  party seemed to recognize it as a case  of the cap fitting, and the only logical  conclusion Avhich could be arrived at in  connection with the vote avas that the  Liberal party Avas apprehensive that  the adoption of a condemnatory attitude might discourage their machine.  ���������Ottawa Citizen  KEREMEOS NOTES.

Bert Irwin arid Charlie Day came  over from Phoenix this Aveek and AA'eut  on to Princeton yesterday.  Mrs G. P. Jones and children of  Nickel Plate spent several days last  Aveek visiting Mrs. Bradshaw at Fifteen Mile.  * The contractors have been painting  the new-school during the past Aveek,  and the coat of pearl grey with white  trimmings produces a pleasing effect.  W. J. Manery has bought H. H.  Messenger's house on the Eastern division. The house is. comfortable arid  convenient and commands a splendid  vieAv of the toAvn.  Members of the Hedley Rifle Association are reminded of the meeting  called for to-morroAV, Friday, evening  May 3rd in Hairsine's Billiard parlor,  at 8:00 p.m.  A. E HoAVse has sold out the Star to  B.  Stone Kennedy,  and  J. W. Grier  has bought the Green Avood Ledge from  \ R. T. LoAvry.      The Gazette   extends  the usual greetings.  The force of miners at the Nickel  Plate is growing and day and night  shifts are now being Avorked. The  cold Aveather of last week checked up  the melting of the snoAV, and delayed  the beginning of Diamond drilling.  A snipe hunt may be primitive sport,  but Monday night's experience served  to shoAV that it is capable of complications that would require a chartered  accountant to figure out and decide  just where the joke came in and Avho  it was all on.  Dr. McPhail of Otter Flat came  down to'Hedley last week to visit his  brother D. McPhail whom he found to  be convalescing. He told of prospectors Avho had come over the Hope  Mountain and who reported an unusually great supply of siioav in the  Hope Mountain for this time of year.  .Snipe' hunting has created a new  interest in ornithology in Hedley.  Some are becoming so proficient in  the science that they are disposed to  criticize the expression "snipe's wrist'."  Harry Avill have to brush up his snipe  anatomy before attempting to give  any further detailed directions to a  recruit.  The Bulkley Pioneer is the latest  claimant for favor, and is a Avell edited,-  Avell printed sheet. It is published at  present in Vancouver, at room li, Mc-  Kinnon Block, and is edited by Mrs. E.  Morrison Gi'out, but will soon take up  its abode in Buckley Valley, to share  the lot of those ' Avhose interests it is  meant to advance.'  Mrs W. A. McLean of Penticton.  Avith her daughters Miss McLean and  Miss Myrtle McLean came- over from  Penticton and are stopping at their  ranch up the. river. Miss Myrtle Avho  Avas attending college at Westminster  had been ill during the Avinter and  early spring and it Avas hoped the  change might do her good.  If the absence of litigation is a  healthy sign in a community, this portion of the province should be considered eminently prosperous. The  sessions of the County Court that  Avere set for Princeton, Hedley, Keremeos and FairvieAV produced no business except a few cases of naturalization at Princeton, and the sittings at  Hedley, Keremeos and FairvieAV were  cancelled.  George Gilbert and Yorky started  up TAventy mile canyon on Monday to  begin Avork on the Florence group for  Thos Bradshaw. Mr. Gilbert has  taken an interest with Mr. Bradshaw  in the property. The Florence group  has had more honest effort expended  on it in the Avay of development than  most properties in the camp outside of  that done by the Nickel Plate oAvners  and it is hoped that the return Avill  be ample to furnish encouragement to  others to do likeAvise.  Mr. H, H. Messenger and family  left on Saturday for California. They  Avere driVen out by Harry Rose Avith  one of Revely's teams and intended to  make Moyes' that evening and go  through to Oroville next day. Mr.  and Mrs. Messenger have been residents of Hedley for about three, years,  and their many friends here are sorry  to see them leave, as they Avere good  citizens. Mr. Messenger, avIio is an Al  mill man has secured a, job in a mill in  Nevada Co. and Avas anxious to  there.  All those who have books oiit from  the travelling library are requested to  return them to Mr. Hibbert this Aveek.  W. J. Manery of Lower Similkameen AA'as in town on Friday, and reported the track gang at wark pile-  driving for a small bridge south of the  Armstrong bridge Avhich had not then  been reached.  Henry Bahrs received a telegram  yesterday calling hhn east, and he left  by private, rig in the afternoon. He is  Avell-pleased with Avork on tlie Oregon  and .-limy have something pretty good  to announce on his return. :'   )  A piece of steel in his eye Avhile  Avorking in the funnel on the Oregon  gave' George Bowerman an involuntary holiday or two at the end of last  AA'eek. The tunnel is advancing rapidly and the first 50 feet Avill.soon be  completed.  The manager of the Daly Reduction  Co. complains of the. shortage of labor  both skilled and unskilled. He has  work for a lot more machine miners  as Avell as some mill men for the van-  ners and batteries. Outside surface  work is delayed from Avant of hands.  The road gang finished at Brushy  bottom on Thursday last and struck  camp. There is iioaa' a good safe route  provided for that much maligned portion of the road and one that should  be as serviceable in Avet Aveather or time  of high water as at any other time of  the year.  Angus Stewart Avent down the river  last Aveek Avith a feAv men to rig a  boom so as to catch Avhat logs are lodged in the river betAveen here and  Keremeos. A convenient- spot for  booming was" found a short distance  aboye Keremeos Avhere two islands occur in the river and a jam can be easily formed between one of them and  the shore. In the present condition  of the river many of these logs could  noAv be gathered in.  A little over a Aveek ago a party Avho  had gone up the creek fishing saAV a  large doe lying near the creek that  had evidently been shot a Aveek or so  before. The poor brute had evidently  been killed by some miscreant for  for mere Avantonness, there being nothing to indicate that any prospector  had killed it. for meat. The carcass  Avas lying at a point Avhich Avas a considerable distance above the dam.  Any person avIio can give to the constable any information to.'show Avho  the guilty party was, should'certainly  do so, for it is to the interest of all  that game both large and small in  this district be protected.  1  "F A  comfortable,  easy,  good-wearing  Shoe means satisfaction to the wearer.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  Continued from Page One  feature of the present administration.  The increased royalty has been loudh"  called   for  by a   numerous party avIio  claim that, the lumbermen AA'ere.  making too much,  and the province not  enough, out of British Columbia's forest' we.-i-lth.     The prosperity   of   the  lumber  industry Avould  undoubtedly,  but for*.the "unusual e.ireuinstances de-  failed above,   have Avarranted'tlU! proposed   increase.      And,   having   once  brought the measure forward, a timid  Government would not haA'e dared to  withdraw it, eA'en, as an unstatesinan-  like  Government Avould haA'e failed to  see the justice and the advisability of  doing so.    The present administration  has stood the test on   both  counts triumphantly, and has given the province  yet another example of that true and  far-sighted statesmanship Avhich can  discern   Avlien 'the  time, is  ripe-for a  measure; to .'become  law.  andAvhen.it  is not* ripe.    ������������������-.''���������  Debate on the UuiA-ersiCy Land  Grant Bill took up the Avhole of a session, the Opposition continuing their  attacks upon it. Stuart Henderson  (Yale) moved a point of order, that the  bill'having entirely changed by repeated amendments, it, Avould be necessary to again bring it doAvn.  The leader of the Opposition supported his trustAvorthy lieutenant's motion,  and Mr. HaAvthornthAvaite turned Mr.  Henderson's effort into ridicule by imploring hhn not to lacerate the .affections of the Minister of Education for  his first bill, and to have compassion  on "the maiden efforts of a father."  The House then adjourned.  On the opening of the House next  day, Speaker Eberts gave his ruling in  regard to the member for Yale's point  of order in  connection   Avith the   Uni-  !*  versitA'   Endowment  bill.     He ruled  that the point AA'as not well taken.  Mr. Parker Williams' Fortnightly  Wage bill, after passing its second  reading, was slain in committee .by  Mr. Price Ellison, -./who. cut this -A'ery-  short-sighted measure off in its prime  by moving that the committee rise.  Mr. Mclnnes' bill to enforce a general  eight-hour day, after a lengthy discussion, A\'aa given the six months hoist.  Mr. HaAVthornthAA'aite said that  Avhenever the capitalists Avanted to  down a Avorkingman's measure, they  could always find a capitalistic renegade in the legislatures.  Mr. BoAvser (Vancouver) in a. long  and eloquent speech, moved the second  reading of his bill to regulate immigration into Columbia. The leader of the  Opposition, after a scathing criticism  of all its details, saw fit to stultify  hiniself by supporting the measure,  and it passed the House unanimously.  On Primrose Day, the memory of  the British Empire's great ConseiA'a-  tive leader Avas observed by the Government members all Avearing primroses.    Tlie effect Avas excellent.  The report on the University En-  doAVinent'Act finally carried by a A'ote  of 22 to 13. Munro (ChilliAvack), on the  Opposition side, voting in favor.  The greater portion of the afternoon  was Avasted by the indefatigable HaAvthornthAvaite. avIio Avanted the Go\'-  ermnent to re-imburse immigrants  brought out here by the Sah'ation  Army, but Avho, on arrival, finding a  strike on, had nobly sat doAvn and refused to Avork. They Avere iioav staining, said the member for Nanaimoina  voice thick Avith tears and picric acid,  and didn't the Government think it  ought to do something ?  The Government didn't. Hon. R. G.  Tatlow told, the member for Nanaimo  severely that he had previously informed him that the Government had  entered into no contract with the Salvation Army.  Further appeals from Mr. HaAvthorn-  thwaito only resulted in a division, in  which the Avhole House voted against  him, except, his two colleagues and  .John ,'Iardiue, of Ks'-uiinalt.  The principal feature of the night  session Avas the passing of the University EndoAvnient Bill through its third  reading. The result Avas greeted Avith  enthusiastic cheers from the Government benches, and Dr. Young is the  recipient of numerous congratulations  on the successful manner in Avhich he  has brought this most important message; through.  The adjourned debate on the second  reading of the bill to amend the Land  Act Avas taken up, and the measure  passed its second reading.
