In some-places the companies furnishing electric light-find that they save  money,by testing all lamps and those  that are found to he deteriorating are  immediately replaced by new lamps  without any charge to the users because it is found that the extra amount  of power used by an old lamp will  amount to more than it would cost to  supply a new lamp. ��������� With a lowering  of 33 per cent, in the cost of lamps  more electric lighting companies will  replace deficient lamps.

I'.Ho 7  THE MUTUAL PRINCIPLE  The fundamental difference between  i Mutual aird a Stock Life Insurance  Company is that in the Mutual the  policy-holders are the proprietors: and  in Stock the policy-holders are onlv  customers, and have no-voice in the  management.  It is in the reserve fund that the  real strength of a company lies. The  Insurance act makes no distinction between Stock and Mutual Life Companies in this respect. This reserve is  sufficient to meet every contract.in  full at maturity, without the aid of  Capital stock, which is an unnecessary  burden.  The largest and best life companies-*'  in Great Britain and America aie purely mutual. There has not been a failure of such a company in the British  Empire.-  The Mutual Principle is the only one  by which the participating policyholders in a life company can receive  a full equivalent for their money. It  gives insurance at net cost, while Unsoundness of the principle and the  stability of such institutions are proved by the fact that the largest and  most successful Life Companies in tho  world are .Mutual.  The Mutual Life of Canada is the  only Canadian representative of this  system.  VERY INQUISITIVE CHAP  : ,   (Ledge)    ,  There, are   some   very   impertinent  people in  Vancouver.    Some chap in  that city by  the name  of Bradstreet  had the  nerve to .write us. the  other  day,   asking  us  how  much   we were  worth, etc.  GOLFERS RE-ORGANIZE ,  There was a very good turnout of  -members of the Hedley Golf Club at  the annual general meeting of the  club held in the parlor of the Hotel  Similkameen on Thursday evening  last.  President G, P. Junes occupied the  chair and IT. A. Hincks acted as secretary of the meeting.  Thefollowing officers were elected  for the year:  Honorary President���������I. L. Merrill  President-G. P. Jones  Vice-president���������A. Megraw  .Secretary-Treasurer���������IT.  A. Hincks  Executive. Committee, the president  vice-president and secretary and E. IT.  Williams,  L. C. Rolls,  G. H. Whirr-  man, C. E. Oliver and F. IT. Frew'  The '..membership fee for up-, .p  was retained at .$1.00 per. montl. . i  men and 50 cents for ladies, and in  addition there was fixed for new  members the low nominal joining fee  of $1.00 for men and 50c. for ladies. .  After the general meeting the executive, committee 'inet and discussed  matters bearing upon the season's  programme and the interests of the  club generally, including a lengthy  discussion upon local ground rules.  The executive are drafting by-laws  for* the club to be submitted at another general meeting to be held the  first Thursday in April.  B. C. CABINET TO MEET  Midway and Vernon Railway Claims and  Question of Taxation Will  Be Considered  LOCAL NEWS  BAD MEN FROM HEDLEY  The demonstration train which has  been touring Washington state is not  coining into the Similkameen but will  visit Nelson and some other points in  Kootenay. This Is. regrettable, and  Hon. Price Ellison, Minister of Agriculture, who had endeavored to have  as many points in British Columbia  included in the itinerary as possible,  will be disappointed as well. The reason given by V.Kistler, district freight  and passenger agent of the Great  Northern is chat the professors of the  Washington State College being pressed for time would be unable to cover  the division west of Marcus.  There was general regret last week  among the friends of Mr. and Mrs.  Creelinan at their departure from Hedley, and unless things take a more  favorable turn than Mr. Creelinan was  anticipating it is not likely they will  return. Mr. Creelinan has been hoping against hope that the affairs of  the Redeemable Investment Company  which is in trouble with the federal  authorities at Washington might not  prove to he in as bad a position .*is reported but latest advices brought him  by an officer for the prosecution gave  reason to believe that their affairs  were far from being as satisfactory  as had been represented to him all  along. Mr. Creehnan's personal loss  will be heavy if the company should  be a complete wreck. Me went to New  York as a. witness in the case.  An accident took place on Monday  on the gravity tramway by which .loo  Dickie, a miner at the Xiekel Plate  had his left arm broken and can consider himself very lucky in getting oil'  so easily. He was riding a loaded skip  from the ore bins to Hedley in company with several others including  Mr, Jones, the general superintendent,  and Mi*. Knuwlos. draughtsman. Noticing that he was   taking up a position  Victoria, March 16.���������Two important  meetings of the provincial executive  will be held within the next>few days,  one to-morrow and tho other on Monday, to clear up a number of outstanding matters. At Monday's meeting a  royal commission to investigate all  phases of the incidence of taxation  will probably be appointed. To-morrow a decision will be reached about  suggestions contained in the report of  the Midway and Vernon Railway  Claims Arbitration Board.  CONCEALING MORE  FRAUD  Inquiry into Failure of Farmers' Bank Is  Rejected by Dominion Parliament  Ottawa, March 17.���������By a vo*}������ of 97  to 62, a government majority of only  35, the amendment of Mr. Hendersons  calling for a royal commission to investigate the affairs of the defunct  Farmers' Bank was defeated on a division taken at two o'clock this morning  after a two-days' debate,  BRO.  WALKER   DEFINES   SOME  Knderby Press  There was going to be an exhibition  of Bingyille Bugle reciprocity at the  curling rink the other evening. But���������  there was too much water on the ice.  Bingville Bugle reciprocity is not the  Fielding variety. For instance, if  Mrs. Lem Brown's irons is all rusty  aird she borrows an iron lo iron from  her neighbor. Mrs. Cy lloskins, and  then if Mrs. Cy lloskins borrows a  clothes wringer in a day or two from  Mrs. hem Brown, that's reciprocity.  If a man has a grudge against you and  slaps you on the right cheek, and you  turn the left cheek to him to he slapped, that isn't reciprocity, but if in  stead of turning the left cheek to him.  you haul oil'and knock him heels over  adad, that is reciprocity.

DISTRICT  Distkict oi-* Yale  The retirement of "Kit" and the  death of Horace Wiltshire who was  bettor known to readers of the Toronto Mail and Empire as ������������������Flaneur"  will make a. lonely void in the columns of that paper for many readers  who for over twenty years have been  accustomed to turn to the departments conducted by those two brilliant writers for both . entertainment  and instruction. "Flaneur" was 75  years of age and died in harness. How-  old "Kit" is it would be ungallant to  speculate upon. She was Irish and  red-haired but remained a jolly colleen to the last and it will be many a  long day before any paper in Canada  will carry a "Woman's Kingdom" de-  par tinent that will heat the pace set  Oy "Kit." A bit of a rebel she was at  times but a good British subject  withal which made it easier to forgive the other. To say that thousands of readers will he lonely to miss  their respective pages   is to  pay them  the  highest compliment   and   yet   it  is only true.

The St. Patrick's ���������light dance in  Fraternity hall proved a successful af  fair, the munber of guests filling the  liall.

' .With the completion of the bridge  over the tail-race on the southern ex-  tention of Scott avenue which-permits  operation of the dump cars the work  on the cut has been resumed. As not  more than five or six men can be used  to advantage in the completion of the  cut foreman Harry Rose expects that  it will require about three months  more to complete.  Tuesday was the vernal equinox,  und as the attendant eqninoxial gale  is not expected to run any closer to  schedule time than the ordinary belated train with the greater latitude  of being permitted to run ahead occasionally as well as behind we will consider, in the absence of any other,  that the atmospheric shindy of a week  ago will have to qualify.  All the material is being removed  off the Indian hinds below the south  end of Smelter flat which is held under lease by the Hedley Lumber Co.  The square timbers of the mill structure are being piled alongside the railway track near the graveyard and the  machinery to the vacant lots owned  by the Bank at the corner of Webster  and Ellis streets. The lumber was removed by Messrs. Boeing and Brass  some days ago.  The  Gazette  was pleased to have a  visit from   Mr. Henry Nicholson, mining recorder of  Rock Creek, and F. C.  Wnlfendcn,  of   Armstrong,  formerly  editor of the Advertiser of that town.  Having business with the government  office at Princeton which would keep  them in   the valley over Sunday they  preferred to spend it in Hedley.    Both  gentlemen wave old acquaintances and  friends of the editor in the earlier days  in  the upper country and Mr. Nicholson  very  intimately associated  with  us for several years at McKinney. Under these circumstances it will be easily  understood   how  the  time was all  too short to fully discuss old times and  inquire   of   the    welfare    of   mutual  friends.   Many of our readers will also  remember that in the first issue of the  Gazette   was a most  inlcresting letter  from Mr. Nicholson   written at our request and   dealing with   conditions   in  the   Similkameen us he Iirst saw them  in seventy-two.

Ezra Mills has entered into partnership with Pete Bromley and a, -woodworking "department will be added to  the blacksmithing business. The coin-  tiination should work well.  A young Italian who works on the  section here recently sustained a nasty  injury by having the contents of a  shot gun rake across his wrist. A fraction of an inch more and he would  have lost a hand.  Mr. A. H. Harrison returned last  week from his trip to the prairie country. He states that a number of prominent farmers at his old home town,  Alameda, are greatly interested in  this district.  Last week was branding week with  the ranchers in tlie lower valley.- They  will very soon now be. relieved of the  care of their cattle and able to turn  them in the hills to shift for themselves for the summer.

Mrs. C. E. Beamish and children are  spending a few days with the former's  .sister, Mrs. E. M. Crooker. They are  on their way from the Kootenay country to Coalmont to join Mr. Beamish  who is engaged as engineer in the  works of the Columbia Coal it Coke  Company.  D. J. Tunis has been assisting his  brother at Hedley during the past  week removing the lumber and plant  of the old Hedley saw mill which was  recently purchased by Messrs. Boeing  and Brass has to be removed from its  site on the Indian reserve.  The grounds around the public  school have been fenced and a little  later when the water is in the irrigation ditch citizens of Keremeos will be  asked to take a day oh" and assist in  planting trees around the property.  We have an up-to-date school bouse  and with the grounds properly fixed  up it will be an advertisement to the  district.  Henry Nicholson, of Rock Creek,  and 10. C.

St. Patrick's Day was observed in  Keremeos hy tin impromptu dance in  Bichter'.-s Hall advantage being taken  of the presence of two travelling musicians, a harpist and violinist, to supply  the music.; There was a good attendance and a thoroughly enjoyable  evening was spent. The day was also  .marked by many engaging in planting  garden truck.  George Allison left last week to join  the niad rush for Steamboat Mountain.  He. will be in" ahead of the general  crush and we trust may be fortunate  enough to make a strike. There is a  lively .demand for claims in that district now and according to report anyone who has anything to otter need  not look long for, a buyer. .'        ,'���������  Wm. Bowroh, whose father was  Gold Commissioner in the Cariboo at  one time and an old friend of Mr.  Cameron's.while the latter was in the  north country, was through here last  week on -lis way to and from the gov-  erninent office at Fairview. MivBow-  ron in company with C. M. Snowden  of Princeton has been spending some  weeks up the Ashnola, where he is  said to have staked for purchase; some  thousands of acres of land.  Mrs. E. D. Fargo and Master Teddy  were passengers by Tweddle special  for Penticton on Saturday. Mrs. Fargo  will spend a few days with her sister  Mrs. Dignian at Penticton and with  other friends at Armstrong. Then in  company with Mr. Fargo, who will  leave here on next Monday, will go to  their home in Barkerville. In the fall  they expect to return to Keremeos  with nuggets of gold taken from the  old treasure vaults of the Cariboo.  C. F. Lay ton and H.J. McLeod made  the drive with one horse from Fair-  view to Keremeos last week. The  depth of snow at the summit was  three and a half feet and the telephone,  men found the going pretty difficult:  two men and a buggy being too much  for one horse under the circumstances.  Surely the telephone service would  warrant the Dominion Government  making the work of their employees  moie congenial. J-3a.sc and west the  line is in a most ricketty slate.  The subscription list passed around  with a view to raising funds to have  our church finished and painted has  met with ready response. Already a  sutticient sum has been realized to  warrant the work being started and  on Tuesday the belfry required to complete the building was commenced.  Painting will follow as soon as the  necessary material arrives. Those intending to contribute towards the  work are requested to do so at the  earliest opportunity so that sufficient  funds will be available. A committee  consisting of Rev. Mr. Cameron, .Kd.  Lee and Arthur Matt-ice. have the  work in hand. A statement of receipts  and disbursements in connection will  be   published as   noon as   the   work   is  ���������There was a representative gathering of ranchers at the tobacco growing lecture given in the town hall on  Saturday afternoon by L. Hohnnn of  Kelowna.- The speaker went pretty  thoroughly into the cultivation, curing and harvesting of tobacco and  strongly advised the ranchers here, to  take it-up. He promised a good market for all that is produced, considered the soil here adapted to it and the  climate making success assured. He  places the net profits of the industry  at from $130 to $150 per acre and  states that it can be grown to advantage tetween rows of young fruit  trees. He had with him some splendid pliotographs of the iudustryat his  home town and some samples of the  weed as grown there. From the latter, at the conclusion of his lecture he  rolled-a cigar and handed it to the representative of the Gazette to test.  Themisgiyings with which we received it and proceeded to test its  quality were quite uncalled for as it  proved to be of excellent, flavor and  far ahead of the average cigar made  under proper conditions and with the  advantage of time in seasoning. The  question of tobacco growing is one  ���������which the ranchers liere should give  their earnest attentionand try an' experimental crop or  two.  J. A.
