Rodgers, a prominent mining  man of Seattle, is interested in a'num-  ber of mining prospects in British  'Columbia. Some six years ago, while  investigating some mineral properties  near Observatory Inlet, north of Port  Simpson, Mr. Rodgers happened to  notice what appeared to be an iron  slide or stain on a cliff some three miles  away from t\vhere he was standing.  He pointed it out to a companion and  stated that it might be worth staking.  The friend staked it. ���������  On March 13th Mr. Rodgers paid the  first $20,000 payment upon a purchase  price of $135,000 for that,very mine.  Mr. Rodgers is associated Avith his  three brothers in the enterprise, -He  was formerly, in the employ of Marcus  Daly, of Anaconda, Mont.  The act to amend the ''Highway  Traffic Regulation Act," passed at last  session is as follows:  1. This Act may be cited as the  "HigbAvay Traffic Regulation Act  Amendment Act. 1908."-  2. Section 8 of the " Highway Traffic  Regulation Act," being chapter 92 of  the Revised Statutes, 1907, as enacted  by, section 2 of chapter 30 of the  Statutes of 1902, is hereby repealed and  the following section is .substituted  therefor:  * "8. It shall bo unlawful for any  wagon or vehicle carrying a load of  more than two thousand pounds to be  drawn or driven on any public high-  Avay unless the tires of such wagon or  vehicle shall be at least four inches in  width."  3. Section 10 of said chapter 92 is  hereby repealed and the following section is substituted therefor:  "10. It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to drag logs or timber  over or along any public highway."  4. This Act shall not come into force  so far as that portion of the Province  of British Columbia situate east of the  Cascade range of mountains is concerned, until the 1st day of January,,  1909. v  It Avill be noticed that the owners of  vehicles have nntil January  1st,  1909,  St. John's Day Celebrations at Melrose,  Scotland.  in  Without the celebration of St. John's  Diiy by the Melrose Lodge of Freemasons the festivities at this season of  the year in that old Border town  would be distinctly poorer. The bells  of Christmastide are barely done pro-  HER SUMMER  SCHEDULE.  The S. S.  Run  "Okanagan" To Begin Daily  First Week in. April- A  Daft-like   Change.  to 'get ready for the change.  LIBERAL  ROUNDUP.  FAIRVIEW NOTES.  The ground on the lower benches is  now ready for the plow.  Mr. Pagle and Mrs. Bennett, with  then; household goods, passed, through  Fairview on their Avay south on Saturday. ...  Messrs. McLeod and McKinley went  to Spokane last Aveek. They may visit  other parts of the United States before  returning to Fairview.  All honor to the nian who will put  up Avith a little inconvenience on his  ranch in order that hjs children may  have the benefit of our school. Mr.  Travis, of Myer's Flat, Was in town on  Saturday.  J. D. AVhitney, who was at the Stem-  winder in an advisory capacity for  about five weeks, left somewhat hurriedly for California where important  developments in connection with his  extensive mining interests there needed his immediate and continuous attention.  ' L. C. AVynne and family are living  at the Stemwinder. Mr. AVynne was  en route to Nelson but stayed .off- at  Fairview for a month or so in order to  take samples and make -issays for the  Stemwinder Company. The rumor  that he is investigating the mine on  behalf of outside interests is quite  incorrect.  A good Liberal in furnishing the  Gazette Avith notice of the forthcoming convention, puts it thusly:���������  "A liberal convention for the nomination of a candidate for ���������Yale-Cariboo  for next Dominion election Avill be  pulled off ,at Vernon on Tuesday,  April 14th. Fellow pilgrims, let us  pray."  .Who Pays for Your Advertising?  The new foundation for the concentrators in the Stemwinder mill is about  completed, and if solidity of appearance is any criterion it will be as solid  as bed rock itself. McFudden ������fc Ray-  burn will, on completion of the mill  woi-k, undertake the necessary alterations and extensions of the cyanide  plant.   .  We learn that the force, at the Stem-  winder will be greatly increased in the  near future. The recent reduction was  rendered necessary, as stations and  pockets had to be cut in the shaft ��������� and  until these were completed it was impossible to employ a large force of men  in opening up ore. All appearances,  however, will justify development  work being pushed ahead vigorously  and the enterprise brought to the successful issue that the determination of  the management warrants.  (Bookseller and Stationer.)  Who pays the cost of advertising?  At first sight this question looks easy.  One is apt to say .off-hand that the  advertiser pays it. But upon closer-  investigation, it becomes apparent that  an advertiser who advertises properly  gets back all the money he spends in  advertising, and a good deal more-  else what Avould be the use of his  advertising?  The purchaser doesn't pay it, because  he gets the goods as cheaply from an  advertising firm as he could from a  non-advertising firm. In many cases  he buys cheaper. Then Avho pays the j  cost of advertising?  The non-advertiser does! By the  lack of enterprise in bringing his goods  before the attention of the public he  loses customers, who buy from advertising people. The profits which are  lost by non-advertisers find their way  into the coffers of those who do advertise. As an example : If $20 spent in  advertising brings you in $30 additional profit, your advertising is paid for  and you are $10 in pocket.  claiming their message of love and  goodwill to all mankind when the  ���������brethren of this ancient lodge in public  ceremonial give evidence of their'belief  in those self-same principles of universal brotherhood Avhich for nineteen  centuries of time have been the golden  ,rule of life. The thoughts of those,  however, who annually Avitness the  Melrose Masonic Festival are concerned with the pomp and pageantry of  the procession, its music and its mirth,  rather than Avith the traditions and  glorious heritage which pertain to this  venerable lodge���������the keystone,' it may  almost be said, in the arch of Freemasonry.  Till 1891 Melrose Lodge had a unique  position in the world of Freemasonry,  for up to that date it remained an  independent lodge, outside  the pale of  the  Grand Lodge of Scotland.    The  torchlight procession with which the  brethren annually celebrate the festival of St. John dates back to 1746, and  on every twenty-seventh of December  the members, preceded by a band, and  decoiated with their insignia,  march  three times round the ancient Market  Cross and then proceed to the Abbey.  Here, within this superb Avork of masonic art,  the brethren thread their  way  round   its  broken columns and  mouldering aisles three times, and finally gather at the chancel, where lies  the  heart of Bruce.   Though at this  year's festival  no moon  in  the   east  oriel shone, and though the roaring of  distant Tweed Avajs drowned by  the  less romantic music of a brass band,  the scene produced by the blaze of the  torches, the glare of colored lights and  the bursting of rockets, had a most  Aveird effect, and was such as must  have made the ghost of Michael Scot  stir uneasily under his  marble at the  strange proceedings going on around  hini.    Here  in  the early home of masonry what lessons may  bo  learned  from its architecture,  what sermons  may be read in its stones.   The thoroughness Avith which  these old time  masons, did their Avork is manifest today.    As  one stands on  the ground  trod in days gone by- by pious priest  and njitred abbot, surrounded by the  graves of Avarrior and wizard,  knight  and dame,  and hears  the strains of  "Scots wha hae" sounding along the  walls which long' ages echoed to the  hymns   of   the   monks,   he  feels  his  blood tingle in his veins and is proud  to be a .Scotsman.  getting, to  Okanagan Land-  give passengers from  It is stated in exchanges up the lake  that the S. S. "Okanagan" will begin  her daily summer runs between Okanagan Landing and Penticton on April  1st.    The Kelo\\*na Board of Trade, for  ieasons   best   known   to   themselves,  have been agitating to have the timing  changed,  and they claim to have accomplished their object.    The change  they desired to have made was to leave  Okanagan  Landing  in   the . morning  and return in the afternoon.   The utility of such a change is difficult to see.  On    the   old   timing,   by   which   the  steamer left. Penticton .in   the   early  morning,  ing in  time  to  down the lake an hour or.so in Vernon  and leaving Okanagan Landing on the ^  return trip after the arrival of the S.  & O. train, seemed to be about as convenient an arrangement as could well  be made.    If the change above mentioned, is made it will no- longer be  possible for people from Penticton to  make the trip to Vernon and return in  a day,  and  worst of all it will throw -  the mails a day late for all points down  the lake.   The plan  that has always *  been  followed of having the steamer   ���������  connect at   Okanagan Landing with  the S. & O. mail  trains Avas the best  that, could  be made for speedy forwarding of the mails. To points served  from Penticton by stage it would mean  either a delay in  the  mails   of  two  days, or a complete disarrangement of  the present stage   schedule and  one  day's delay of the  mail.   Should the  change be made and people have? to  Avait a day longer for their mail they  will Avonder Avhat new maggot in the  brain has struck that crotchety lot at  KeloAvna   whose  ways  are  never as.  other people's ways nor their thoughts  as other people think.  Liberal-Conservative Convention.  CONCERNING THE HOT AIR.  B.   C.    Mining    Record    Adds    Some  Official Figures as to Values.  Mining Record.  Among the "hot air" items recently  sent out from Grand Forks, Boundary  district, as mining news is tlie misstatement that at Hedley, Similkameen, " the Nickel Plate is now operating 110 stamps and is makiug daily  shipments by freight teams of its high  grade concentrates to Keremeos, where  they are shipped by rail to the east.  The ore runs about $S0 per ton. in gold  and silver." The Daly Reduction  Company's mill at Hedley has only 40  stamps and the average value of Nickel  Plate ore as sent to the mill in comparatively large quantity has in the  past been officially recorded as from  $12 to $14 per ton. Yet influential  daily newspapers published in the  province continue to print the gross  exaggerations of some irresponsible  and reckless press correspondent at  Grand Forks.  The above interesting and beautiful  hit of prose poetry was handed the  Gazette by a subscriber, who, it is  needless to add, is also a member of  that widespread ancient craft whose  quaint present day doings in this case  so aptly link the present Avith the remote past, and it is with pleasure Ave  reproduce the item. To us, born on  this side tlie water, the name Melrose  appeals only from the realms of history  and poetry, and to many the item will  recall the following lines by Sir Walter  Scott in "The Lay of the Last Minstrel ": !  If thou wouldstview fair Melrose aright.  Go visit it by the palo moon-light;  For tho gay beams of lightsome day  Gild, but to flout, the ruins gray.  AVhon the broken arches arc black in night.  And cacli shafted oriel glimmci-s white.  By announcement in another column  it Avill be noted that the nominating  convention  to choose a candidate to"  contest Yale-Cariboo in the Conservative interests, will be held iti Vernon  on April 23rd,  at 2 p. in.   .This meet  will be just nine days after the Liberal  convention.    The action of the executive in giving this long notice is certainly to be commended for it enables  all parts of the riding to make full arrangement to secure representation at  the convention, and it also gives aspiring candidates an opportunity to  get together and reach an understanding which might do away with any  contest at the convention.    Local associations are asked to hold their meetings early for the selection  of delegates.     The   representation   will   be  based upon the A*ote polled at the last  provincial election,  each polling subdivision having a delegate for each 20  votes cast, or fraction  of 20.    Local  associations in the various polling subdivisions   through   the   Similkameen  riding should hold their meetings early  and appoint their delegates   so  that  they may  be represented at the convention.

The Bank of British North America  held its seventy-second general annual  meeting at the head office in London,  England, on March 3rd, and British  financial papers are loud in their praises of the healthy state of affairs shown  by the balance sheet. Concerning it���������  the London Financial Post says:  "That the troublous times which beset the. United States in the latter part  of 1907 did not affect Canada is demonstrated in the results achieved by the  Bank of British North America in the  past t%velve months.    After paying 7  per cent, in dividends the directors are  able to transfer   ������20,000   to   reserve,  ������20,000 to bank premises amount, and  to cany forward ������24,000.    The report  exhibits a steadily progressive  position, not the least satisfactory feature  of which  is  the growth  of  banking  business in the outlying parts of the-  Dominion."

In a  province    situated   as   British  Columbia is where' so  great a  mileage of public higliAvay has  to    be   built   and maintained,  and AAThere the cost of construction and   maintenance of same  is so much greater   in   proportion than  that  experienced in  the eastern province, any measure which may be taken by the  B.C.  legislature to lessen   the  damage   to    public    highways  wouid look like ��������� good  business.  The amendment provides  that  where'the load of any  vehicle  exceeds 2000 lbs. the tires shall  be  not less   than   four   inches  Avide.     To    secure   the   fullest  measure of protection to  roads  by prohibiting the use of A^ehi-.  cles that are liable to  do  damage, it might have been AA-ell to  go a step further and  regulate  width.of tires for  \rehicles  carrying loads betAveen  1200 and  2000 lbs.,   making a  minimum  Avidth of, say 2i- inches for these,  and laying the onus upon manufacturers as Avell as users,  for  there are many A'ehic'es on the  roads  carrying  loads   of  from.  1500 to 2000 lbs. whose tires are  often not more than  1;/-  inches  in width, and these  will  do  as  much   harm   as    tho    average  freight wagon with a two  inch  tire.     That   the  new  law  Avill.  excite  a great   deal of   hostile  criticism is of course  to  be  expected, for it  will   entail  some  cost upon freighters and others  to get   new   Avheels   for   their  Avagons.     Among    these   criticisms and   objections   may   be  expected    the   old    contention  that the wider tire draws heavier  th.au   the   ihutoav tire���������an  objection that appears fanciful  at best,  for  the   friction is on  the  hub  and   this   will be unchanged.    The wheel that sinks  deeper into the ground  should  certainly draAV the heavier, and  this would not-be the Avide tire.  Another objection they urge is  that the wider tire  Avill strike  more small stones than the narrow tire.    This is very true, and  King Edward seems to> have  added very materially   to  the  reputation he bears for ahvays  being  able   to, dp   " the   right  thing at the right time"  by , his.  action on   the   incident of the  TAveedmouth   letter   from   the  Kaiser.    A? Berlin correspondent' Avrites that His  Majesty's  communication;greatly pleased  Emperor William and -the{-German government-' He says: "The  newspapersprint long extracts  from the speeches made  in  tlie  British parliament on the  subject of the letter, and  eulogize  the calm dignity of the proceedings.   Their   satisfaction    Avith  what they regard as the end of  the incidentis   complete,   and  their   vamour    propre -'haying-  been saved bv the British  atti-  tude, they politely readmonish  the Kaiser   to   repress   in   the  future his impulsiAre tendencies,  mid to refrain from corresponding with -foreign-'ministers on  public matters -without consulting his own advisers."���������Colonist.

Peck McSwain-, printer, poet, and  peripatetic, philosopher, blew into Hedley on   Saturday   morning   by   Peck  special, which it may.be explained has  innch to do with  shoe leather.    This  is the first time for nearly three years  Lhat Peck has paid a visit of inspection  to this part of his jurisdiction. During  last summer ho was down about Frisco  doing the  towns of  the sunny south  nntiRafter the autumn loav.es had fallen, after which he'headed northward.  Concerning   this   particular   piece   of  waywardness  on   his  part   Peck  was  willing to admit frankly that, he didn't  have the sense of a goose,  for a goose  will go south for the   winter  while he  himself headed northward..   Speaking  of the three year interval since ho sojourned for a Avhile-in Hedley,  he had  most   to   say   of  one   whole   eleven  months' spell that lie held it down in  Golden, until in an evil-hour the spirit  led him to criticise too freely the financial bona fides of  that town's pet railway scheme, whereupon the board of  trade ordered him out of town.   A day  or two after they  had  given  him this  very impolite invitation, and before he  had gut his portmanteau ready for the  road and   his  head Avas feeling   just  right, Premier McBride came along to  hold  a  public,  meeting and   told   the  people from   the  platform  practically  the ,������anie thing as Peck had told them  in  cold print and  the board of trade  didn't say boo to him, which Pock held  to lie unfair discrimination, especially  in view of the fact that Peck a.ud the  premier had  attended   Sunday school  together in the earlier days,    .'fust one  reminiscent sociable half-day of type-  sticking was all   the   Lime  he   had to  spare for  the Gazette   this  trip,  and  then hied him on for  Prince   Rupert  via Princeton.

Jim McNulty, one of the old guard  of prospectors and miners was in town  last week, having come over from  Fairview where he had been working  in the Stemwinder. With his partner  Tom Roderick he holds some very  likely claims on a mountain immediately south and east of Riodan mountain upon which they have done a lot  of good work and have encouraging  showings, but as the snow is too deep  over there to begin work jnst yet, he  concluded to look about for a while before starting in. Jim has warm friends  in all the camps from Rossland to the  Similkameen, and in Phoenix camp in  particular, he has broken down many  hundred tons of rock for the. big smelter to lick up.  IL.

There is said to be considerably less  than the regulation amount of snow  this spring on Nickel Plate mountain,,  which is not the most favorable condition for good water supply during  the litter months of 1908 and the Avinter of 1909.

The mill-hands are also as  busy as nailers making repairs in the  mill while they have the present.  chance with the water turned off.     -  Mr.-Angus Stewart.'is now at "Can-  ford, on the Spence's Bridge-Nicola  branch of the C.

The Yale Mining Co. have posted at  various points convenient to the mine  workings and along the tramway approaching thereto, a code of signals  for blasting in the glory-holes. Parties going up to the mine will do well  to watch for them and follow the directions. One short blast of the whistle moans blasting at Sunn j-sides No. 1;  two short blasts for Sunnysides No. 2;  three blasts for Sunnysides No. 3, and  four for Sunnysides No. 4. When any  one of these signals is given, every  person should get under cover at once  and remain th(%e until the release signal (one long blast) is given.  A new cable on the gravity tramway  is one of the repairs being carried out  this week. The grooved metal rollers  that are now in use all along the track  have aad a good effect in lengthening  out the life of a cable. And while the  cables last longer now than formerly,  less chance is taken also in running  them to the efficiency limit. ���������.  The last word received from F. M.  Gillespie was from Malta, from Avhich  point he remembered Hedley friends  by sending some postal cards. A  picture card received by. the Gazette  was post stamped Vallette and showed  the famous chapel of bones, that wonderful blending of the ornate and  gruesome.  Mrs. .Raymond Rodenback, who was  taken to Victoria hospital where Dr.  Jones performed an operation for removal of a cancerous "growth, is reported as doing well, and there is good  reason for confidence that.'Jihe operation has been entirely successful. Her  husband arid brother-in-law who accompanied her to, Victoria returned  last week.  The Greenwood Ledge somewhat  mischievously reverts to; the unaccepted'invitation Ay-Inch Mr. Shatford extended to Mr. Nad en ' to . a ttend the  opening of the Rock Creek bridge and  finish 'out the Victoria debate, before  the electors of Rock Creek. The Ledge  wants to pull off the event on the first  of April which is a very suggestive  date-for Mr. Naden's friends of the  Sam Larsen brigade who/with' the assistance of a bridge promise, gave hint  the majority which elected him. ,  A Keremeos man was hot the other  ���������day over a case of knocking that had  recently occurred there in which a  real estate deal of considerable importance was spoiled. It is a A'ery poor  piece of business indeed for any resident of a place to meddle Avith the affairs of his neighbors and wantonly  deeixtheni or their property to strangers, whether these strangers may be  buyers or not, and the offence is  doubly heinous w-hen the meddling  takes the. form of misrepresentation.  Vernon and Kelowna are both organizing corps of, mounted infantry.  Tlu^ Vernon corps have offered the  command to Col. Cart-wright of Suni-  nu-rlaud. Ill-health prevented ���������him  from accepting, although he may yet  take it if his health continues to improve. Should he do so, the .corps  may be congratulated on its commanding officer, for in "Bob Cartwright'  as we used to call .him years ago in  barracks when he was. a youuger hum*  in the service, they will find a gentleman in every way fitted for the   post.  One day last week Harry Yates was  coming down from Central station  with a, load of steel and an axe on his  shoulder, when he had the misfortune  to fall on the. ice.and cut a nasty gash  in his knee. On his arrival in Hedley,  Dr. Whillans dressed the Ayowftd,  which required two stitches. The mishap will keep him a prisoner for a bit.

From the -facilitating  sport of caribou hunting in Newfoundland we are taken to deer stalking in  the Gatineau Valley, hunting,-on a  Quebec preserve, a success!'uK hunt in  Muskoka; while, an unsuccessful one in  New Brunswick proves that hunters  are sometimes prepared to' tell of their  failures as to boast of their-successes.
