IMMIGRATION RESTRICTIONS  P. W. GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER and BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building       -       Princeton  An order-in council issued from  Ottawa, on 'Monday, extends the period for restricting the. entry through  any port in British Columbia of skilled and unskilled labor. The former  order expires on April 1st, and the  new regulation simply extends the  time for another six months. As a  protective measure of relief for our  already overcrowded labor" .market,  the order is" practically next door to  useless, as its provisions do not extend  to" other portions of the Dominion.  Under its ruling there is nothing  whatever to stop an artizan from crossing the line into Alberta and making  his way into Biitish Columbia,  ;.The Gazette ..makes some extracts  this weak from a letter written hy Wid  EcKyaids to $. K.; Hamilton. The letter-is* written from Wapica Barracks,  Shornclilfe, Kent, England, ,under  date of j March 7th.    In it he says :  I thought,I -would, drop you a line  and let.you know that',the Germans  .didn't ;.get us on ������������������our., way. across, but  we had '-to put into Qiie'enstowri to  avoid some submarines, that.were in.  the English Channel, but wliich have  since been put out of commission.  ��������� The Company that I am now in is  the only one of the 30th that are here  at present;  the rest are to come later.  The three transports were conveyed  to Queenstown by a cruiser the Meg  antic. From there we were conveyed  to Liverpool by two torpedo boat des:  troyers. We got here at one o'clock  in tlie morning, taking a little over  three weeks on the trip.  I was at a place called Folkstone  this afternoon and on my way saw a  number of Art places, also a few Belgian and French soldiers. We are  about "twenty-five miles from France.  There are quite a few wounded soldiers  here from the front. Men have been  sent from here to the front and been  killed in two days. There are soldiers  everywhere and many thousands at  these barracks.  Hoping you are well and with best  regards to all the fellows.  Sidney Edwards  DEAN FLEWELLING DIES   .

The following from the Nelson News  will be read with regret in Hedley  where Dean Flewelling was so well  and favorably known.  ' 'The death occurred at Cranbrook of  heart failure on Friday of Rev. Ernest  Purdy Flesvelling, rural dean of Cranbrook.  "The late Dean Flewelling was the  third son of Hon. William Flewelling  and was, born at Clifton, N.B., on  March 1st, 1816. His mother was before her marriage, Miss Ester Meriitt  of New York. He married in 1S77  Miss Sara Sinclair,'daughter of John  .Sinclair of Newcastle, N.B., and is  survived by four children, Richmond  Flewelling of Windsor, Out. ; Mrs.  Bastin, wife of Rev. A. Bastin, Ganges, Salt Spring Island, B.C. ; Mrs.  Surtees Towgood of Sandon, and Mrs.  Sydney Brown of Hamilton. He is  ���������also survived by one brother, Hon. G.  H. Flewelling, and one sister, Mrs.  Wetmore, both of Clifton, N. B.  "Through ill-health in his early  manhood the late Dean Flewelling  studied privately for the church and  was ordained deacon and priest by  Bishop Medley, Metropolitan of Canada. He was rector successively of  Dalhousie, N.B., and Brandon, Man.  He was the first rector of St. Paul's,  Vancouver, after which he went to  Kamloops, Nelson and Dawson City.  For the past nine years he has been  rector of the Anglican church at Cranbrook. ���������  "Special reference to the death of  the late Rural Dean Flewelling was  made both in prayers and at hi.s services at evensong last night by Rev.  Fred H. Graham, lector of St. Savior's  church. Dean Flewelling had many  friends among the congregation of  St. Saviour's. ���������  "The funeral will take place at 3  o'clock Wednesday afternoon at Cranbrook.

Yada. Japanese consul-  general for Canada, in an adress at a  Canadian club- luncheon here yesterday. Among the guests were the Hon.  T. W. Crothers, minister of labor, the  Hon. Maurice Goor, Belgian consul-  general, and J. E. Rainvillu, M. P.,  (Ohambly-Vcrcheres, Que.,) all of  whom spoke briefly.  M. Yada said Japan stands for  "the open door" in China and the far  east. Germany was the only nation  which did object to the policy. Not  only was Japan standing by the British alliance in fighting Germany in  the East, but she was protecting herself from German ambition. Germany  was at present intriguing, as she did  in Turkey, and for this reason, Japan  had been compelled to net promptly  in dealing with China.  Japan bad nd territorial ambition  in China nor did she wjint in the least  to interfere or violate and rights or  interests of other powers in China.  On Friday evening quite a number  of residents from the burg drove up  to the home of John Bromely and  spent a very' enjoyable evening. A  large number from Princeton were  also present. Dancing was the chief  attraction of the evening and the  happy visitors enjoyed themselves  well   on  into   the  wee'   sma'   hours.  A sumptuous supper was served by  the hostess, at midnight  Roch Lam-tot, Liberal member for  Laprairie, Quebec, and 'Adelaid Belle-  mare, Independent Conservative  member for Maskinonge, Quebec, expressed the. view in the debate on  the Budget in the Commons that  Canada has assisted sufficiently in  the war. They took the ground that  official utterances ot Biitish Cabinet  Ministers were on record that Great  Britain could finance and maintain  the war at the present rate of going  for five'--years more. Therefore, Canada should stay her.'hand.'  The Montreal Daily Mail has a vigorous reply in condemnation of this  view. Canada has been niggardly  enough in her support to the defence  of the Empire in the past, the  Mail observes; now is the time to extend generous help, and .the"  knowledge thatv Great Britain is prepared to ioake,���������such tremendous outlay for our safety against the Hun  methods should be a stimulus to  Canadians to urge what we also can  and will do. The utterances which  counsel abstention from thon war  the part of Canada ut this juncture  are ill-conceived and unworthy.  This condemnation is merited.  With what jubilation will the  enemies of the Empire seize upon  such utterances and twist their significance to serve, their purpose. If  11 general election is necessary to  prove to such as Lanctot and Belle  mare that Canada is going to sen this  war through to a finish, then the  contest will be welcomed by the loyal  people of Canada and nowhere more  welcome than in this Pacific Province.  ���������Columbian.  Rail-layers started at work on Kettle Valley steel from Osprey Lake w;est'  to Princeton last week. Three crews  went out from Penticton. .,'Itis expected to link up with s.teel ^t I^rdnce"-.  ton in about a* month's.tiine:r vOspr-e-y  lake is 31 miles from the coal mining.,  town. - :.������������������-.*.���������  .Announcement has been' made that'  the'Great Northern gatigs.-iyjll shortly  start ballasting on; the G;jS.R/.pprtion  of the joint line, being.' the 'section  from Coalniont ontoColdwater Junction. It will take but a few weeks to  finish up this work.  Meanwhile, ballasting work is to be  cariiedout on Kettle Valley sections  which,, weie completed last year and  as soon as steel is laid between 0*-prey  Lake and Princeton that portion will  also be ballasted in order that the  whole line from Midway through to  Meriitt will be ready for opening of  tiuffic on .or about May 25 or June 1.  It has been fortunate for the rail-  wayrnen that there was little snow at  Osprey Lake, and an early spring,  otherwise it would not- have been  possible to do much with rail laying  for at least, another month. The early  spring this year, and there is practically no snow at Osprey lake just now,  means a good deal to the Kettle Valley Hue, and to the towns which aie  anxiously- waiting for the opening up  of traffic.  Grading on the Hope mountain shoi t  line from Hope to Coquihalla is finished and the rails have been laid a short  distance east of Hope. Bridges have  yet to be built, however', at various  points along the line, and it will not  likely be ready for traffic until autumn.  The bridge over the Fraser river  near Hope, which will alford connections between the main line of the C.  P. 11. and the new Hope Mountain  route, has been completed, and already  rails have been laid on the south bank  of the river as far as the crossing c*f  the Canadian Northern railway. The  joint section of the Hope Mountain  line from Hope to Coquihalla Summit  will bo completed by the fall, according to present estimates. Work on  bridge construction has been proceeding all winter, and tracklaying is now  being proceeded with. The Hope  Coquihalla section is being built by  tlie Kettle Valley road, and will be  used also by the V.. V..&E.,.    ������������������.;..     '  ..'* .*'  The handicap committee of the Hedley Golf Club wishes to announce that  as the first monthly match for the  medal will be played about the 10th of  next month all members are requested  to hand in a, couple of their score cards  before the 5th of next month so as to  enable the committee to fix the handicaps. Members not handing in at  least one card will have to play from  scratch.  PENTICTON LIKES  THE CHANGE  Penticton has for a long time desired to be taken into Similkameen. For  one thing Penticton believed that the  highways in this immediate vicinity  would receive even better attention  under Mr. Shatford than has been the  case heretofore.  There are many other directions also in which Penticton's ambitions  might seek development in the event  of this prosperous community being  taken into Similkameen riding. Not  the least of these is the expansion  which will come as a result of the  growth of the tributary valley running south to the boundary line. The  .importance of good roads* through this  ���������section c-.mnot be minimized. The  value of being drawn into closer touch  with this section is equally great from  Penticton's point of view. Penticton  for this reason alone should give Si-  milkameen's member hearty support  at the election poll.���������Penticton Herald  Good-Roads Taylor deserves the  name, but in Similkameen at least  there is another Good Roads man. He  is Good Roads Shatford. ,.,,MITr ^^^r..^.^w.w-������.*.^.a^.-frt.^,^J-y.. 1*VUXZ*-*������  -^������^_  THE HEDIEY GAZETTE MAR. 25, 1915  i        ���������       i ��������� '���������     n u <���������*���������������������������!    fWb������l������������������ ���������' I  ���������������������^������  ftXX'  >"��������� U-*'.  ns.  ift-t-s;   "^^^.-^t  *���������&.  s.  .-..-. ���������.'*���������.'������������������.��������������������������� *������������������������:.

An explanation is due the. readers of  the   Hedley   Gazette  as   to   why   the  paper  has for weeks pa������t been neveral  days  late  in   making  its   appearance  until   finally   it  failed   la--l    week   lo  appear at  all.    The explanation  may  be.  briefly expressed  by the writer in  two    winds    "mi.-placed    confidence."  A little over a year ago the plant and  business was turned over  to   Win. 0.  Mai tin on a bona fide, "ale, easy terms  of payment being gi\   .i and security  taken by promissoiy notes and chattel  mortgage.      When   the   wiiler   ihen  severed  connections  it  was   intended  that lit- was out for good, and, faithful to that intention, not a single line  ha> since been written for  it by him  that was unsigned.    Neither  i> it his  intention   lo   letain   in   any   way   an  editoiial   connection   with   the   paper  and what ever final .*u*i angeinents may  be made, s-oinu one else will wield the  editoiial pen,  but the public can rest  assured that they will not be asked to  put up with such a paper as they have  been getting for the past few months.  If   the   people   of   Hedley   want   a  paper, and we believe   they  do,  they  have a right  to   the   best  which the  support accorded   will   permit   to   be  given   them.       So   far  as  business   is  concerned, there is no place in British  Columbia   that  has   been as  little affected by the war and the hard times  which accompanied  it,   as  in Hedley.  This is very apparent to anyone who  travels about the province, and there,  is  every  reason why it should be so.  for there is as .much employment here  now as ever;   the  wages are just as  good and the  pay as regular and as  sure as ever it was.    People in Hedley  eat no less,  and  they  wear as  many  clothes as  ever, and there is nothing  to make the times any harder.    Why-  then should the town bear the stigma,  of allowing a local ins-titution dike* its  newspaper to diop out of the race?  The utter failure of thelate manager-  is no evidence as to the room in this  portion of the ���������Similkameen Valley for  a suitable  paper.    The support given  him when totaled up and placed along  side of legitimate  expenditure, left a  comfortable competence, and but for  the   mysterious  capacious  leak there;  was  no reason   why   he should   not,  with a reasonable amount of industry  and caie, have been more prosperous  to-day than the average publisher in  the district.   In the waning days of  1912, he made alike sudden and mysterious disappearance,  but his sin on'  that occasion was lightly paresed over  and the blame-laid upon Dan Cupid as ���������  it is now as clearly to be charged up'  against "king chance." An Old quaker'  has truly said :  "If thy frier.d deceive1  thee once,  shame on him ;   if he deceive thee twice, shame on thee."  A. Megraw  As far as kiiown no date has yet  been set for the election in Biitish  Columbia and sonic arc of the opinion  that it may not take place until the  fall. The luui-i- has not yet been dissolved and the Premier has until the1  end of March, 1916, to bring on the  election. If Premier Boidon mayabo  be contemplating tlie plunge, it. is but  natural that Premiers should cunfir  and prevent the two li inn clashing  with each other.  58T  ���������\  ���������&������������������  Whatever" advance Germans inay  have. made in the. direction of culluie  or scientific research, their present  day statesmanship is badly out of  joint.

In   the  Siuiilkaiiieen   it was feared  that  the  present   representative,   Mr.   L.    XV.  Shatford, might not consent to contest  the   riding   in  a campaign eomiiiir so  shortly after hi.-, recent severe bereavement,   but the  large  and  representative  convention   which   met in  Keii-  nipos on Saturday 19th and tendeud  him the unanimous nomination, could  leave him no doubt as to the thorough  maimer in which his representation of  tin- district is endorsed hy the elector.'.  A significant feature of the convention  however, was the  slight  echo   of the  general   discontent   throughout   the  province against certain  members of  the government.    The storm centre of  this seemed   to bo   the  Attorney-General  who in spite of the large amoiu.t  of   useful   legislation   he   has   .given  the provice since he became a member,  of the government,   has contrived  to  get himself in bad with a great  many:  pe >ple owing to his  domineering  and  often illogical adminstration of his de  partment. In this way the convention,'  we have been told,  almost   went wife  of its way to declare  itself in  support  of the representative rather than   the  administration, for they made it.plaiu  that  they  wanted   the    candidate  to  consider himself free  to   vote  as   he.  saw fit in the interests of his constituents,    thus   giving   him  latitude for  which he had  not   asked.    By doing  this, however, they have fiii-nishad  a  very effective answer to those electors  (and   there  are some)  who say   that  while they fully believe him  the .best-  man obtainable, their Only reason for  voting against him would be to "get a,  cttick at Bowser".

This is in a measure due to the establishment of the Fcdcial Reserve'hanks,  but the case of money throughout'the  Anglo-American world is a phenomenon which nearly always presages an  expaiiMiui of business.  It is, nevertheless, paradoxical that  the supplies of liquid capital should he  larger than ever before ata time when  all the gteat nations of Europe are  borrowing such huge amounts and  spending from five lo ten millions a  day lo maintain armies that aie burning expensive powder, wrecking valuable property and destroying precious  lives. What is the explanation of the  paradox 'i Mathematics is called an  exact science, but in its higher realms  many paradoxes are encountered that  vcan lie re.-.olved only with the aid of  imagination and the empiricism that  is called faith. The same statement  "would appear to he liiieTof economics  in view of the world's financial conditions today.  In August it was piedicted and believed that the war would be brought  bo an end ere this by the complete  bankruptcy of the powers involved,  but lo! their borrowing power is im'-,  diminished and the supply of credit at  their disposal is larger than ever.  Looking hack on the history of tin-  world for the last hundred yeais, we  find the same sequence in the commercial and financial recoid. The first effect of war is panic caused by the im  pact of the shock. Thereafter, within  a comparatively short period, capital  becomes abundant, business revives,  speculation is quickened,-and a-period  of financial activity follows that generally becomes a vciitable boom before  peace can he discerned and continues  for several years thereafter.  The Napoleonic war cost England  about three billion dollars, and France  nearly as much. Then, as now, the  bankruptcy of Europe was predicted,  but Macanlay, alluding sum what ironically to that prophecy, says  beggared, the bankrupt society  only proved able to meet all its obligations*, but while meeting them grew  richer and richer so fast that the  growth could almost he discerned by  the eye. In every country we saw  wastes recently turned into garden;  in every city we saw new streets and  squares and markets; more biilliant  lamp.*-; more abundant supplies of  water. While shallow politicians were  repeating that the energies of the people were borne down by the weight of  ptihlic burdens, the fir*>t journey was  performed by steam on a railway and  soon the island was inter.se.cted by'  railways."  T/he Crimean aud the Franco-Pros-,  sian wars were siinihirly concurrent;  with iucreased business activity. Tlie  Boer war was followed by the .greatest  trade expansion. England has ever  known, and the decade following the  Kjpauish-Amei'ican'war shows a business expansion in the United States  that seems almost miraculous in suddenness and volume.  foi ��������� ���������i\^^G\y���������-'^^"^^^y-'-������&yviyi^'A.  may be doing duty as diapers, sgme-  wheto south of the-10th'parallel.
