AI  One good act which must be chalked  up to the credit of the Railway Commission is a twenty percent, reduction in express rates in the west. The  move was strenuously combatled by  the express companies but. the Commission had gone into the matter  thoroughly and knew  what could  be  done and  decided that the present ex-  ������  cessive rates could stand a twenty per  cent, cut   which was  accordingly ord-,  ered to take effe.ct on July 15th. ���������  When the express on an article or a  parcel of goods is found to exceed the  price of the goods themselves, which  not infrequently happens, it is easily  seen that, the public are being given a  raw deal by the express companies.  While the reduction will not take effect soon enough to benefit the entire  fruit trade this year, it will nevertheless prove a great boon to fruitgrowers and will come in time for moving  a considerable portion of this year's  crop of small fruits and be in ample'  time for all of the peaches and most of  the plums and.cherries.  It was expected that parcel pest  would compel the express companies'  to make a big reduction in their rates,  in any case, but we haven't got parcel  post yet and the present order comes  in tiine.ly.

Vancouver Board of Trade is endeavoring to have the Railway. Comniis-  sion set the date for-rediictioirof express rates to take effect a month and'  a half earlier so as to'make it effective  in handling all of the small fruit crop.  It is now expected that the present  session of the. Dominion House may  end about the first of .Tunc.  The Highways Bill introduced last  session by Hon Frank Cochrane, Minister of Railways, and duly passed but  was thrown out by the Senate at the  bidding of Sir Wilfiid Laurier who  afterwards acknowledged that tlie  Senate's action was taken in compliance with his wishes, has been again  introduced this session with a practical certainty that it will be le-enacted  for it has already, been given its first  -iikI second readings and passed the  comniittu stage.  Some of the provinces have been  very dilatory in the matter of providing good roads, and as it is desirable  to have a highway from the Atlantic  to the Pacific the object of the federal  measure is to supplement the efforts  of the provinces for the provision of a  good trunk road in each province, and  when the provinces are assisted in the  building of a. good trunk road they  will have more encouragement to keep  it  in good  condition and   build  other  roads.  British Columbia now has the credit  of providing better roads than any'  any other province in the Dominion,'  notwithstanding that the roads are  harder.to build in a mountainous country. In ihis province assistance."is required for a portion of thetrunk road  through the Nelson district. With  the exception of that very difficult  section the province, has tackled tlie  question in a thorough manner and  already has hundreds of miles of the  transcontinental highway either built  or under construction. Why an enterprise of that kind should be given  the factious opposition which Sir Wilfrid and his followers have accorded it,  is something rather hard to nuclei -  stand, and to deliberately defeat the  will of the people by having an irresponsible body like the Senate throw it  out, is like piling on the lust straw:  As we go to press Anton Horwath,  the Austro-Hungariaii fron!

Well,  here  is  what happened  on   the  way'  back, as told by the Penticton Herald:  "Suddenly .confronted by a two  horse rig, on Monday, just as he was  rounding one of the', turns 011 the road  to Keremeos, 'Lucky' Art. Thompson,  one of the proprietors of the B. C  Hotel, turned his 00 horsepower Chase  deliberately from the highway, crashed through a barbed wire fence, shot  over a fifteen foot embankment,''and  brought the car to a standstill in a  chaos of debris, without damage or injury to himself or the three other occupants.  Mr. Thompson's action, which required plenty of nerve, undoubtedly  saved several lives, which would have  been lost had a collision taken place.  Mr. 'Thompson was returning from  Keienieos, and the ' powerful Chase  was eating up the miles easily at a  speed clo.se to twenty-five miles an  hour. When the turn was rounded  the horses were not more than ten  feet away, and" it required lightning  action on the part of thedriver to save  the situation. Mr. Thompson took the  chance, driving his car over the fifteen foot embankment without an instant's hesitation. All the damage  that resulted was a strained steering  rod.".  If all the autoists through the country were moved by a like spirit there-  would be less giound for complaint 011  the part of those who have to use the;  highways with horse vehicles.  To create a little more interest in  golf and also to fiurnish some data for  the committee on handicaps, a series  of golf matche.-. will be played between'  sides chosen by the. president -��������� and  vice-president. Official score cards  have been supplied to each plnyi't* by  the secretary and these he requests'  each one to religiously fill in and have  o.k.'d by opponent. Copies of the  rules have also been proem ed for each  member and all are requested to study  them carefully, observe them closely  aiid see that the opponent does likewise. To waive a penalty incurred by  an opponent is regarded a more heinous offence under the rules than to incur the penalty oneself.  During her recent trip to the coast  Mrs. G. P. Jones had the pleasure of  hearing the great -English contralto  Madam Clara Butt sing to a crowded  house in the horse show building,  Vancouver. It was. fortunate that  she did , not risk-attempting to hear  her in Victoiia as the 'accommodation  there 'would not permit of. one half the  people hearing her who .would apply  for admission. Mrs. Jones was called  to the Coast by the illness of her  da lighter,'Avonia, but was relieved on  her 'arrival on finding her much betr  ter. While in : Victoria she'met Miss  Blake a former .teacher in the school  here who was very popular in the  town.  H. A.. Turner, district road supervisor, was in town last Thursday on a  trip through the district to see the  various road foremen. ��������� His auto was  undergoing repairs in the garage in  Penticton and he was obliged to make  this trip up the river by rail. There  are vaiious places where altei native  routes wevo laid out by the engineers  last fall and it will now he up to the  engineer and the road supervisor to  make a final choice in most of the  cases and decide which one is to Inbuilt. Mr. Cleveland is to lie in shortly and they will go over the route  again and have the matter finally settled. At present the road gangs which  have started are working rather short-  handed ,-i.s the ranchers are mostly  employed at their seeding and the full  crews will   not be on for a few weeks.  That the system known as the ���������'case-  count," which ha������ picvailcd in tho egg  ti-adi" for a number uf years, provides  110 discrimination whatever, and that  under it thu producer, with no reflection on the ben, is nut encoiir.iged to  market an article of high quality, was  the decision .'come to in Montreal at a  hugely attended meeting of the egg  trade of the provinces of Ontai in and  Quebec. The remedy of this state of  affairs was suggested as taking the  form of an Egg Mark act. similar lo  the act governing fruit. The formation of a new produce association was'  also proposed.1'  Determining means whereby cuii-  sumeis and merchants could be pio-  tected against the marketing of stale  and rotten eggs was the pi imai y object of the meeting. Under the present system when bad eggs aie found  in the cases there is no rccoui se for  the dealer to lake, and the opinion of  the meeting was that the "case count'"  ���������where a flat rate is quoted, stale and  bad eggs commanding just as high a  price as those of the highest guide���������  is equivalent to placing a pieniiumnn  can-less anddilntoiy methods in the  prnclut lion and care of this product.  Moreover, it was pointed out that the  country storekeepers received no encouragement to market an article of  higli quality.  The opinion was unanimous that leg-  is la tion should be secfired to prevent  the sale of such products and full approval was given to the proposal to  adopt a new system whereby due discrimination should lu> made between  good and bad eggs. The following  ' resolutions wei e unanimously adopted:  Resolved: That il is the concensus  of opinion of those assembled in this  meeting that the greatest need of tlie  Canadian egg trade at the present  time is the passage l>y���������the federal parliament of an Egg Marks act, similar  to the .Fruit Marks act: .-Mich act to  make unlawful the buying, selling or  trading in rotten eggs and to include  such.other- regulations as may be  thought advisable to promote! the best  interests-.of all concerned.': ';,".  Resol veil.:- Thu t the dealers' /assembled hereuuianiirioiisly approve of the  proposal to change on .Tune 1st. 1913,  from the Vpiesent system, of buying  eggs to a "system,of buying only on the  basis of quality, and further we disapprove of paying for any rotten eggs  in our receipts after that date.  Resolved: That the -chairman appoint a committee to draft a. constitution and to take steps in conjunction  with the trade in other, provinces to  form -an association to be known as  the Canadian Produce association,  with a view to bringing.together tho  city and "country wholesale produce  dealers, and further, that a meeting be  called in Toronto at an early date to  give effect to this resolution.  AUTO ACCIDENT  GENERAL NEWS  A plot to blow up the naval base at  Esquimalt during the Boer war which  the Thiel detective agency discovered  in time to prevent, has now been  given to the public.  The Duke of Connaught tells Londoners of his delight with Canada,  and his hope to return here with the  Duchess for a further period of residence  as representative of the Crown.  The new union station 'for the  C. P. B. and Kettle Valley lines at  (hand Forks will be opened to-day.  Hon. James Bryee has vacated the  position of British ambassador at  Washington and his successor Sir  Cecil Spring-Rice has arrived.  The New Zealand Minister of Defence  has been   in London consulting  with   the British admiralty on a permanent naval policy.  The war situation in the Balkans  has developed greater possibilities for  danger of a general outbreak than has  existed for some time. If Montenegro  will not give up Scutari which she has  expended much blood and treasure to  win, Austria will either compel  .Europe to interfere or will drive out  the Montenegrins herself.  Grand Forks. B. C", April 27.���������In an  auto accident near Grand Forks this  afternoon Fred Anderson, city electrician, had a rib broken and was  otherwise badly bruised. The other  occupants of the machine were J. E  AV. Thompson, Phoenix; P. French.  Hedley; and R. J. Gardner. Mr. Gardner was driving the car at. a fair speed  when the steering wheel got a/ivay  with him, putting the car into the  ditch and throwing out the occupants.  All of the party were pretty well  bruised up, but Anderson was the only  one receiving injuries ��������� requiring the  services of a doctor.���������Nelson News.  WOULD PROVE TOO MUCH.

I u British Columbia it has for  some years been a burning question  in which the. local interest in the communities immediately effected, has  * waxed and waned from time to time  as circumstances arose to demonstrate  the undesirability of the present  status; but at the present time, for  political purposes, it has been given  wider interest by becoming a bone of  contention in the House of Commons  in Ottawa. This has coiiie about  through the attempt of Frank Oliver  to make political capital out of the  transfer of the Indian title to some  eighty acres of reservation in Kitsilano which is ji portion of the City of  .Vancouver and was held by twenty  Indian families.  The details of the bin gain by which  the* Kitsilano lands were given'up and  the merits or demerits of the case, is  something we have no intention of going into here, for the whole thing has  been rehashed ad nauseani hy almost  every party paper in the province.  Those who are finding fault for political purposes would do so in any case  whether the Indian got too much or  too little, for his land.  Surely'" we  can assume   that all will  agree,   or  pretend   to agree,  that the  present status  is  altogether unsatis-  factoi-y,   both  in   the interests  of the  country and of the Indians themselves.  In   the eastern  provinces  the question really does not concern the people  for with them it was settled long years  ago, and   the  only  inteiest they can  now have in it is altogether academic.  Neither did it become very urgent in  British    Columbia    until    about    ten  years ago, with the exception of a few  local  cases  like   Vancouver and Victoria,  for through   the interior of the  province   there  was   plenty of virgin  land  to  supply  the   demands of   the  homeseeker,   but now  it is different.  It is  doubtful also whether  there was  ever in the  eastern provinces as bad a  condition of affairs in the retardment  of progress as there  is at the present  time in British Columbia.     Unfortunately when  it did   become  a serious  question here those to whom we were  expected to look to have it settled for  us  were   politicians   fiist, and   every  other consideration   had to  he subordinated  to party.    As proof that we  are making ho idle  charge  when we  say so  it is only necessary to point to  he   has  always   been���������in poverty  and  ignorance.  Whether the Provincial government  have in   every case  they   might    ii  the settlement game so much oil' their  own hat, may perhaps invite difference  of opinion, but il must be lemembered  that it was the only way in which.they  could    accomplish    anything    before  September  1911,   and   having fonned  the   habit, it  is   pel haps difficult   for  them now to proceed otherwise.     The  settlements   made  in individual .cases  have certainly left the   Indians in possession of lands that are. more suitable  for their  mode of life and  given them  besides  an   amount  of  ready   money  which   has   made  every  one of  them  wealthy.      It was   not the   basis upon  which  settlement was   made "with the  Indians in the  eastern provinces, the  wisdom of which time has amply proven as everyone knows who is acquainted with the condition of the Indian on  theieserves  in the counties of Brant,  Hnldimand,  Middlesex,  Lamliton and  the Bruce peninsula. In all those cases  the government were  made the custodians of proceeds of the.  Indian lands  and   they  administered   it for  the Indians,   maintaining schools for them,  helping them along  in 'their farm ing  and   paying them a  handsome sum in  cash every quarter which came out of  tlie interest on the fund. Most of those  bands are  in comfortable circumstances, fairly well educated and they have  the franchise and other  privileges of  the   Whites.     Whether   they   would  have been so  if the  money had  been  given  them  in a lump  sntii is something we. do not know, but we may  have our own  opinions  regarding it.  Nevertheless it was the thing which  the  Indians  themselves   wanted and  they are one of the factors that have  to be reckoned with in the situation.  It may be that the British Columbia  Indian has had a different experience  with the  whites and is less trustful in  leaving his funds with   them.    In discussing the matter with local Indians  we have had an  opportunity of seeing  something of this distrust.     We have  even been  told by the chief that they  were  to get a certain  siim  from  the  Great Northern  Railway for right of  way of the railway through their lands  and  that the  matter had  been   negotiated  with  the railway company by  the  Indian agent in their behalf,  but  they had never seen a dollar of it.     If  this be so, and we  have no reason to  doubt it,   what has  become of it and  why  have the  Indians not  been fully  informed  as to the disposal of it, if it  is being retained to apply to some purpose  which   may be  more to  the Indian's real benefit than if parcelled out  among  them?   This  transaction took  place during Frank Oliver's administration  of the  department and if the  Indians  have been   made to  lose confidence in  those to whom  they should  look   for   protection,   it    shows    the  amount of  humbug  there  is   in   the  maudlin  sentimentality  to  which he  gave expression in the*-House the other  will remove the obstacle to progress in  this and other sections of the province  it is criminal on tile part of those who  will try toiiifluencethe Indians against  a course  from   Avhich they more than  any others stancl to benefit most.    On  one    of   the   reservations    back   east  which   we have  enumeratr-d-the capital   sum   in   the   department  to   the  credit of the  Indians  is about three  quarters of a million  dollars on which  they receive  over $20,000 annually in  interest  most of  which is distributed  among them, and there are only a few  hundred  in the  hand counting men,  women  and  children,  and  they  still  have  more  land  left  than   they' can  till and look afteri    There is in the Similkameen  valley   between   Chopaca  and    Princeton   25075   acres   of   laild  which  fifty  times the  number of hi-  diens could not till.     As it is they are  getting  very little  use of it and their  children    are., growing    up    without  schooling.    Most of it is very valuable  land and if the untilled   portions of it  were sold by public auction  or put up  for competition   by   tender  it should  net a handsome sum for the use of the  Indians.  183(5  THE BANK CJF  77 Years in Business.

II  1  The branded shoe, made by a maker  with a reputation, is a safer shoe to  buy than the one made in an unknown  factory by an unknown inakef.  The underwear made by a firm whose  name is as familiar to you as your own,  is worth more to you than underwear  nameless or labelled by a maker of  whom you have never heard.  Tea sealed in a packet bearing the  name of a reputable firm is to be preferred to tea of which the packer is not  sufficiently proud to advertise its  quality.  That in jrfiich much money has been  invested to make or keep it good is  worth more than that on Which nothing*  or but little has been spent.  Peace of mind is worth something,  just as quality is.    Buy peace of mind.

The illness of constable Bogers of  Princeton'makes it necessary for the  Hedley constable-to spend more lime  in that end of the valley.  Frank Bailey came down from  Princeton On Saturday and is spending a few days in camp. He expects  to have his booklet out shortly. It is  now in the hands of printers on the  -coast and they are a bit slow.  F. H.

He had to  wait at Grand Forks for its arrival  -and while there got mixed up in an  auto accident. He arrived home yesterday with the new car.  So far there has been very little increase in the streams and the snow  has scaicely commenced to move in  the mountains. Altogether the chances of high water are getting more  serious every day, for as a rule a good  ���������deal of water has generally run off by  the first of May in the average spring.  A gang of men under XV. B. Bonny;  ���������castle, electrical engineer, was doing  survey work on the river in connection with the water rights that have  been applied for. It is understood  that the time for fyling of plans on the  first right recorded is nearly up and  all revisions that'tire to be made must  soon be attended to.  An interesting swap match between  the cricket club and the baseball club  is proposed. The manner of the swap  is that the baseballers will be the opponents in a, cricket, match against the  ���������cricketers and the cricketers officiate  in a similar manner in a baseball  game. The. event should affc)i;d some  ���������sport for the participants.  V. Huns of Montreal, inspector of  branches for the bank of B.^N.

Mr. Huns has paid  ���������several visits to Heclley and was pleased to note the steady increase.  John M.

There is just as good work being done in country  olTices us in the cities, and often as poor work in tho cities  as in the worst country shops  In Prices the country office cfin do just as well for  you and you save the express.* The city printer may get  his stock ji trifle cheaper by S4iving the local freight, but  his rent find other overhead' expenses tire higher, ttnd in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same clttss of work.  THE   HEDLEY  GAZETTE  is prepared to  do txny kind of work that may come 4tlong.  No order too smtxll and none too hirge.  M****-*--!**"******-*^-"*--**!
