Many new men have been taken on  the pay-roll during the past fortnight  and more are wanted���������both surface  men and mechanics.  Most of the work is completed on  the tramway trestles, the largest of  them having been overhauled. There  are two smaller ones to do yet but  Paul Bradhag'en's gang have transferred their activities to excavations  work around the mill getting tlie  foundations ready-for the two 00 foot  extensions to the north end. The  upper extension will accommodate.the  tube mills and Deistor tables and tin  the lower one will be two fifty ton  Oliver filter presses. These machines  have been ordered and tire on the  Avay;  The event of the week in the power  house was the tinning over on Monday and Tuesday of the new compressor,- which started oft' as steady .as  an old plough horse under the small  amount of steam' turned tin for trial  purposes. Yesterday a shut down was  made to permit the working con nee  tions to be made with the air pipe and  the main steam pipe fiom the boilers.  It is expected that today will see every  thing leady to permit it to take its  load full swing.  The machine is a cross compound  condensing Corliss steam-driven air  compressor with high pressure cylinder 18x3G and low pressure cylinder  30x36; fitted also to a huge Pel ton  water wheel developing 300 horse  power, to run-by water, when there is  sufficient water available. It avi'11  supply 2100 cubic feet of air per  minute.  The water has increased most satisfactorily during the past ten days and  there is now enough to run everything.

Mr. Kellett, avIio is at the Hotel  Vancouver, Avill leave this afternoon  for Abbotsford, where he will establish headquarters for the contractors.  The firm intend to erect there a huge  Avarehouse for thestorage of supplies.  He will be accompanied to that point  by a number of subcontractors, including Mr. Martin Welch, of Spokane,  who intends to tender for various sections of the work between Abbotsford  and Hope a distance of'about 51 miles.  The entire line has been located and  the surveys-are now being revised by  engineering parties.  Mr. Kellett intimated that grading  outfits are now enroute to the scene  of the point Avhere the first work will  be undertaken. It will prove of a  heavy character and it is proposed to  use several steam shovles. Six weeks  at the Litest will see the construction  camps established along the route and  the entire Fraser river valley section  under contract to subcontractors.  DEFENDS B. C.

PflLfl6E  Livery, Feed & Sale Stables  Boston, Mac's., March 17,  the tariff question as his chief argument' in his strenuous campaign- for  election to congress, Mr. Eugene N.  Foss, ti millionaire manufacturer, in a  speech yesterday declared that if  elected he would do all in his power to  effect better reciprocal trade relations  with Canada. Mr. Foss gave a warning to the audience that unless the  tariff barrier was removed a million in  capital would cross the border line.  "In fact, in the past 10 years, fully  $170,000,000 of American capital litis  gone to Canada," said the speaker.  Mr. Foss also, in seeking election from  fourteenth Massachusetts district,  said in part: "We need Canada more  than she needs us. In a few yetus we  shall have to beg for favors that now  she might Avillingly grant."  Local horsemen have strong views  on the dog question; and from what  they say it is no wonder .that they are  in favor of a general dog-extermination campaign...., Not only is the town  over-run Avith a lot of useless curs, but  some of them haA'e the vicious habit  of running out at team's, and in some  cases jumping up and 'catching horses  by the nose until the horses can scarcely be driven past Avhere these dogs are.  The dogs in Hedley. might- easily In-  divided by ten, and then there would  be more left than there is any need for.  Owners of dogs may not know, but it  is true nevertheless, that if a dog runs  out at a passing rig and causes a runaway, the owner of the dog is responsible for any damage that may be done,  and moreover, in cases where people  have been killed in runaways caused  in this manner the owner of the dog  has been indicted for manslaughter  and found guilty. '     ������'.  In Ontario, within the past three  months, there -have' been dozens of  people bitten by mad dogs. In Toronto alone 21 persons tire undergoing  treatment for rabies at the Pasteur  Institute besides the large number  who went to New York for treatment  there, and a boy bitten in Hamilton  died of hydrophobia. Several hundred head'of cattle mid'horses have  been destroyed as the result of having  been bitten by mad dogs, and it has all  come about as the result of allowing  any and every person to keep dogs  whether they were prepared to look  after them or not.  Martin Burrell,'-; Yale-Cariboo, said  that good work was being done by the  provincial government of British Columbia in protecting orchards from  pests and Mi*. Burrell quoted from a  speech made by the minister of agriculture in which he said thatin quality  and flavor the fruit of Quebec was superior to th*it of British Columbia'. He  could not admit this claim. The member for Yale-Cariboo then gave figures  as to what is being accomplished by  British Columbia and stated that the  Dominion fumigation station in that  province was not up to the mark. In  view of the complete local '-machinery  evisting. Mr.'Barrel said a strong feeling exists that in the event of this bill  becoming law there will be no clash  between the federal.and provincial authorities. He fully recognized that the  objects aimed at Avere good.  Mr. Fisher said that  he could take  no exception  whatever to the statements made by Mr. Bhrre.ll.   Splendid  work Avas doubtless   being   clone by  British Calumhia. If the other provinces Avere doing as well there would hot  be much necessity for the new legislation.    He Avas aware that the fumigation  station in: British Columbia was  noL   sufficient to    meet  the requirements and he would have taken steps  last year to enlarge it,.-but for his intention to introduce this bill. He must  insist, however, on giving the palm in  fruit production to Quebec province,  which  both as to  quality and flavor  produced the best apples in the'Avorld.  Nevertheless he appreciated  the fine  quality of British Columbia fruit and  congratulated that province.  APPRECIATED  Similkameen's Representative Wins Golden Opinions From Outsiders  (Vernon News.)  Mi-. L. VV. Shatford is to be congratulated upon the striking manner  in which he set forth the many natural  advantages and resources of the Similkameen and Lower Okanagan districts in his speech supporting the  Penticton Railway Bill. It is not Mr.  Sliatford's habit to indulge in frequent  or lengthy orations; but when he addresses the Legislature he may be depended upon to say something worth  listening to. He has been long noted  as an untiring worker in the interests  of his constituency, and his efforts to  secure better transportation facilities  for his district cannot fail to ,meet  with hearty appreciation.

Gi*egg & Co., Vancouver,       5.00  ,   Commencing Friday night April 1st  the splendid Eckhart company, including Miss Josephine Deffry, in an excellent    high-class    play,    comes- to  Fraser's Hall in  this  city for an engagement of one night.     The offering  will be  "Paid in Full," and if you fail  to see it you will have missed a wonderful per-formance of a very interest-  ingcomedv. It is oneof the distinguished   and' immediate   successes   which  swept into favor.    It will  be the first  time  this  brilliant comedy has been  seen in  this city.   There is a succession  of psychological surprises, an intense    undercurrent that  keeps   one  quite  apart from   the delight in   the  searching   satire,    the    double-edged  humor, in the sparkling lines. Judging  from conventional dramatic standards,  as is written  in the recognized key of  pure comedy, it is one of the best of  modern times. The play Avill be beautifully mounted and excellently acted.  Prices 75c general admission and $1.00  for reserved seats on  stile   Saturday  March 20th, 28th, 29th,  30th, 31st and  1st at  the City Drug Store.     This attraction is guaranteed, or money most,  cheerfully refunded.  interested public. The Mutual Life is  one of the oldest institutions of the  the kind in Canada and the continued  increase in its business abundantly  proves the favor it is in with the people.  During the year the company wrote  in new business, all of it Canadian,  $8,125,578, an increase over the previous year of 190S of $877,114: the insurance in force on the thirty-first of  December last was $59,201,959, an increase over the previous year of $4,-  508,077; the assets are. now $14,518,442  or $1,534,778 more than in 1908.  The reserve valuation of its current  policies is slightly over twelve millions, this reserve being calculated on  a mixed standard of 4 per cent.,34 percent, and 3 per cent. The reserve  value under the uniform government  standard involves a somewhat smaller  liability. On the company'--, own valuation its surplus is $2,2(59,692��������� ,*t sufficiently substantial amount on this  volume of business; while on tho government standard it is $700,000greater.  Half a million of this surplus was earned dining 1909. The assets are mostly  in mortgages, with $4,S5S,000 in debentures, and $1,818,000 in policy  loans.  During the year $384,527.2(1 was paid  in death claims and $240,137 in matured endowments*. The company enjoyed its share of business in this city,  where Mr. William J. Twiss is malinger.

BANK OF  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  STANDING BY. HER RIGHTS  There is, nothing -tho government of  Sir Wilfrid Xaurier  has done that is  more,  worthy of commendation than  their  handling-of the .tariff negotiations -with-the United States, and it is  safe- lo say that in   this they will have  the  entire  and   undivided support of  the opposition.    Had Fielding been as  t aivitil to maintain the same stiff back-  hone in his negotiations with Germany  .a   iiaitrii    better   arrangement would  have   iieeh  accomplished'  there   than  that under   which   Canada is about to  be  invaded   by the  representatives of  German   manufacturers and  German  business  houses.     Germany  took  offence tit the  British .preference  find  thought she should have as favorable  terms in the  Canadian market as Britain,   and  to  visit her displeasure on  Canada  proceeded  to put on a surtax  on Canadian imports   to that country,  upon which   Canada retaliated  with a  good  stili. surtax  on. German goods.  A few   years of that   was sufficient   to  show Germany  that in her treatment  of 'Canada she had only  been biting  oft" her  nose to  spite her face  and finally she made overtures with Canada,  to  withdraw  the surtax,   which  the  government were far too ready to do,  and as a result  they acceded  to the  German request for commercial peace  too quickly without due consideration  of the  terms upon  which that  peace  was to   be granted, and agreed  to an  arrangement hy Avhich it appears that  Germany   got   the  best of  the  bargain.  In like   manner  the  United  States  thought    that    they  should   have  as  favorable  treatment as that accorded  to  France  under  the   special   tre.-ttv  made   with    that   country,   notwithstanding  the fact  that a high   tariff  wall   hits always been  maintained by  the   United  States  against  Canadian  imports and the balance of trade with  Canada,   was   "two   to  one"   in    their  favor.     The big stick was held  out in  the shape of a. maximum tariff against  Canadian     imports    under    the.    new  Payne-Aldi-i'-h larilT Law which would  automatically   conic   in  force   against  Canada,   on   ilii*   first  of April  unless  Canada came to them before that date  with some   other special  arrangement  to   have   the   blow   warded  oil'.     The  Canadian   government   paid no attention to   the  bluff and then   Washington   took  its  position  on the anxious  seat going  so far as to  send special  commissioners to Ottawa to negotiate,  The 'government- appears to have  been unfortunate in its selection of  location for-the demonstration orchards. The first arrangement was to  establish.'���������������������������three and place them all in  the' Okanagan. This'' was strongly  combatted inTvootenay and with very  good reason. The next ..move was to  add three, more add locate the other  three, at Kootenay points .which while  being* in a measure a repetition of the  original blunder wtis perhaps more  defensible than the first inasmuch as  the. fruit-growing areas of the 'Kootenay'district- 'are'more scattered than  in the. Okanagan;-.. but the chief iniquity is to locate three in; the Okanagan and'three in the Kootenays and  leave Similkameen without any. The  case for the Similkameen as put by  the writer of the letter in another  column,- signed "Keremeos," is timely  and to the point and the views expressed therein should be. backed up with  concerted action on the part of till  residents of the valley.

This time ; he came by train  and .thus run no risk of being run over  by any vehicle coming behind. Like  many other old timers of the district-  he seemed in those early days to have  obtained the elixir of eternal youth  and at bis advanced age is still hale  and hearty.  Bev. A. H. Cameron, of Keremeos,  'is an ardentphotogiapher and has attained a degiee of excellence in the art  that few amateurs need hope to icach.  At an' exhibition in Winnipeg held  several years ago, he was successful  in cairying off eight first piizes with  seven exhibits, getting fiist prize for  each and first for the collection. He  has recently added to hisphotogr-iphic  equipment a telephoto for taking pic-  tiuea at long distance,  a  thing  that  will come in paiticuhuly handy in a  distiict like the Similkameen. and during the coming summer ho is likely "to  get some fine views with it. i  General sm'-prise was expressed  around town when it became known  .it the beginning of the week that L.  O. MacHaffie, manager of the Hedley  bianch of the Bank of B. N. A. was  being transfeired to the coast, and  that his place heic* was to be taken by  Mr. 11. A. Hincks. who was foimerly  tellei here and had 'been moved  last July to Victoria. Mi. MacHaffie  has ,b<jen ^manager here since the  branch was opened in the spiing" of  1905, and was legardedqs a permanent  -i > ���������*-  fixture in the town with, whose interests he had been identified in so many  diffeicnt ways. It is therefore with  regret that townspeople andeustom'eis  of the bank see him leave.  Road ; supervisors are advised from  Victoria that they must notify farmers and others who nniy have heavy  teaming to do that'they must not haul  over the rords any heavy loads unless  they have the regulation wide tires on  their wagons.  The Society column of a coast paper  the other day had reference to certain,  bon ton doings at the residence of  Madame Hoodless- and Mile. Shirtless.  It is now up to Mrs. Sockless to have  something at her house and thus keep  up her end of society.  The Nicola News, the latest claimant for public favor, recently started  at Merritt, bears evidence of healthy  growth, The business people of Merritt must certainly be enterprising  and public-spirited judging from the  support they are giving it..'  Mr. H. A. Hincks arrived from Victoria to-day to succeed Mr. MacHaffie in the management of the Hedley branch of the.."Bank of B. N. A.  Mr. MacHaffie goes to Vancouver  where he will take his. holidays before  being sent to his new field.  Dr. McEwen has a railway hospital  dowii at the old sawmill, where the  commissariat has been fitted up for  hospital work and all the more serious  cases occurring up on the construction  work are brought down here for treat  ment. J. Boucher is in charge as nurse  and already they have . had several  patients to look after.  Col. Jos. E. Caven. at one time  editor and manager of the Kansas City-  Daily Times, and more recently manager of the Denver Times, is in Hedley  as the press representative of the,  splendid Eckhardt Theatrical company  that comes to Fraternity Hall for one  night onl.y, April 1st. The conipany  is a first-class one and should be liberally patronized. Prices will be 7a cts.  for general admission and .$1.00 for  reserved seats*. Tickets are now on  ��������� sale at the City Drug Store.  Once, .again the.re has been the reminder that fire may. break out in the  dead of night in any hotel in tlie valley. Tn how many of these arc* the  fire escapes in order and every precaution taken to provide for the safety of guests? How many hotel men  are there who give a thought to the  matter- from one end of the week to  the other and how many eon.-:l.ables  are in position to say whether the lire  escapes are all in order, and yet sections 8 and 9 of the Fire Escapes Act-  lays that responsibility on all provincial constables. Do they all realize  that this responsibility rests on them,  and what are they doing about it?  The Similkameen Star announced  last week the contemplated departure  of Rev. J. Thurburn-Conn fiom Princeton to Waidner on the Crowsnest line  in the Cianbiook district, wheio he is  to report on the fiist of April. A student fiom Queen's college, Kingston,  is being sent in to take the Princeton  field until next fall. When it became  known that Mr. Conn was to be transferred to Waidner some of his friends  in Princeton interested themsalves in  raising sufficient stipend to bring the  Princeton allowance up to what it was  for the whole field before Hedley was  detached, but as the superintendent  had made all arrangements for Mr.  Conn's transfer to the Wardner field  no alteration in the plans could be  made.     .'. "      ���������''   ";  The railway has certainly been a  promoter of intercourse between  towns' in the, Similkameen, and we  see visitors from Keremeos and  Princeton much more frequently than  before. The train schedule is parti-  cularlyfavorable for residents of Keremeos to make the round trip in the  day giving them four hours stay at  Hedley and an hour and a half at  Princeton. Princetonians of course  have to stay over night kwhen they  take a jaunt down the valley, but they  do not .require to lose much time as  they can' leave home in the middle of  the afternoon and be back again for  work the next day'at noon. This gives  them ample, time at Hedley to make  the trip up to the mine and that is the  attraction for most of them.  After a long spell of absence of electric light the'.lights were turned on  Thursday night last and as usual there  was noticed  in   certain  quarters   the  same     disregard     in    allowing    the  lights to burn full blaze where there  was no  need for thom.    That sort- of  thing is hard.to ^understand and especially  in  a case where . the power is  short and it is only by straining a  point that the light can  be given  to  the  town at all.    A  meter system is  really the only kind of thing that will  appeal to  the electric  light hog,   and  the absence  of ample power such as  there has been in  Hedley during the  past five months would  have amply  justified the management in  having  the lights cut oil'altogether from users  who manifest a disposition to deliberately  waste.    When the  new plant is  installed  which will  provide for good  light the year round, meters should be  I put on   those who  have  shown them-  | selves    unable    to    appreciate  decent  treatment when they get it.  ���������&&���������  KEEP YOUR' EYES ON  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined.to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

Mr. Dreniuan's- roadster Topsy was  badly treated by "Ned" his grey horse.  Topsy being tied and Ned having  broken loose the little roadster had to  stand and take what Ned was prepared to give.

Alex., one of the half-breed ranchers', drove a herd of 30 head of horned  cattle west on Wednesday. In passing Mr, Mattice's lot a cow lately  branded was deliberately driven with  the herd. This animal not coming  home.as usual at night the owner had  to drive six miles west to interview  Alex. The cow found her way home.  A repetition of this act by Alex., or a  like act by any other party should not  go unpunished.  Shortly after one o'clock on Sunday  morning the inniates of tho Alkazar  hotel at Keremeos station were aroused hy fire, and had barely time to get  out with their lives.  The fire started in room No 7 up  stairs over.'the bar thiough which a  stove pipe went from, the stove in the  bar but as the fire in the bar was be-  believed to have been out for hours,  it seemed, difficult for them to believe  that it could have caught from that  pipe.  J.Cosby slept in the room ; adjoin-'  incr and was awakened by the smoke.  He had only time to grab.a few of his  garments and get out, his trunk and  other belongings being burned up.  Fortunately  there was   very, little  wind at the time and what there was  happened  to be in the right direction  to carry, the heat and cinders away  from other buildings. The place which  was in  most danger was the livery  stables  of Inuis  Bros,  and .-'only the  most strenuous work on. the part of  those   who   came  to the   assistance  saved it from meeting a like fate.     A  bucket service was  at once put   into  action  under   the direction   of A. J.  Saunders, Who seemed to keep his wits  about him and take, charge of defence  measures.   The heat on the roof of the  building was intense but they managed to keep the roof nnd; the':-hay in  the loft well soaked with water..  Had  the wind been in the opposite direction  or had it been calm it is hot likely the  stables could, have   been,saved, and  with them would have gone the rest  of the town. .  The .amount, of insurance was not  learned but it was believed to 'have  been between $2000 and $3000 while  the total loss is placed about $5000.  GEO. KIRBY  Notary Public.  HEAr.

ADVERTISE   IN   THE    GAZETTE  Editor Hedley Gazette  Dear Sir:  It is not pleasant to object to the  work of your old friends, but under  the present circumstances I am compelled to assume that role.  From  the Nelson News  of the  17th  inst. I learn  that six demonstration  orchards are to   be   established   this  year in British Columbia by the provincial government and to be operated  under the direction of the department  of Agriculture.     Three of* these fruit  ranches are to  be in  the Okanagan,  at Vernon, Kelowna and Summerland  and  three  in  Kootenay,  probably in  East Kootenay,  West Kootenay and  Boundary.     The  object of these fruit  ranches.is.to foster and encourage the  fruit industry by demonstrating the  results of cover crops, inter cropping,  drainage, pruning, spraying, different  methods of cultivating and irrigation.  This new departure is commendable.  However,  is it not a most remarkable  oversight on the  part of the government that the fruit growing district of  the   Siniilkanieen   with   its immense  possibilities is. omitted from the list of  favoured- places.    Why should there  be three demonstration orchards*   in  the Okanagan  and not one in the Similkameen.    On  Okanagan  Lake the  facilities for travelling from  town to  town  are most  favourable  and   one  such.orchard at any town on the lake  should be sufficient for the Okanagan.  If the government want to combine  expernients   with  demonstration   let  there be two such orchards operated  one at Vernon and  the other at Penticton.   Between.Penticton and Keremeos  there  is a range of mountains  and for the fruit-growers of the Similkameen    the   distance,   35   miles,  must be made by stage at a cost of  $10.00 for a single round trip and two  days on  the road.   The fruit-growers  in  the  Similkameen are not million-  - "Apparently    such    orchards    are  planted in bunches. But the Okanagan.  is not the only district  in British Columbia where apples are grown.     We  should like to see.a bunch of Demonstration, orchards planted in a region  where   the fruit   achieves its   finest  flavour and texture.   It is difficult to  believe   that the   provincial  government if it is to establish only three"  such orchards means to set them all  within  a few miles of one another in  one particular district and to establish hone whatever in the wide territory of the Kootenays and Boundary."  These objections are sound and will  apply with even greater force in support  of the demand of the Similkameen for one of the three demonstra-  orchards  billed for the Okanagan.    Is  it remarkable   that men   should  denounce the business men of Vancouver  for their unconcern about the development of the Similkameen ? Let it have  half decent treatment.   It is certainly  time for us to demand what is due us  and the business men in  Vancouver  should awake to their interests east of  Hope mountain and not as in the past  let the   Usonians swipe   everything,  coal, gold and fruit from them.    With  the completion  of the V. V. & E. in  two   years   Keremeos   will   be   only j  seven    hours   run  from   Vancouver.  Therefore it is in  the interest of the  business men of Vancouver to insist  on fair  treatment   for  the   Similkameen. ���������  Yours sincerely  "Keremeos"  March 19th, 1910.

When a telegram  from Victoria was published in Nelson  stating that the provincial government had decided upon the establishment of three demonstration orchards  in the Okanagan the Nelson Board of  Trade wired Harry Wright, M. P. P.  demanding that the Kootenay fruit  industry should receive consideration.  Before; that valuable consideration,  three demonstration orchards for  Kootenay, was known at Nelson the  following appeared in the editorial  column of the News:���������  If you  wish to own an auto  that will  travel fast and far,  Raise a pig.
