Kellyj vice president, of the Grand  Trunk railway, who has been waiting  in Halifax for news from the scene of  .the Titanic disaster, notified the officials of the road this'mnrning hy wire  that the body of their, dead chief had  been recovered by the cable- ship  Minia. A casket in which the remains  of Mr. Hays will be pi need on the arrival of the funeral ship in port has  been ordered by the Grand Trunk vice-  president and a special train is being  held in readiness lo convey the body  ,to Montreal immediately upon the arrival of the Minia.  THE RAILWAY ROUTE  WHEN BRITAIN  INVESTIGATES  (Westminster Columbian.)  The appointment ot Lord Mersey as  the chairman of the British investigating committee into the loss of the  Titanic will'he universally approved. It  is characteristic of the thoroughness  with which Britain is determined to  maintain her right to rule her heritage  the sea. Before his elevation to the  peerage, Lord Mersey as Mr. Justice  Binuha.ni was Judge of the Admiralty  Department-of that peculiarity named  branch of the High Court of Justice in  England known as the Admiralty Probate 'and Divorce Coiirt. He knows  maritiine laws and usage as no one  else in the English speaking world can  possibly do. The rules of the ocean  highways are as simple to him as the  rule of three. The intricacies of the  written and unwritten laws of the  deep have been studied and solved by  hiin again and again; When Lord  Mersey -and his committee get down  to work, the world will know  for good or ill, not onlyvthe story of  the Ti.tan.icV sinking^ but also the  causes 6f .tlie accident; and the blame,  if blame .there be, will beset on the  proper shoulders: The fearless impartiality of,the Admiralty court will  be applied to the investigation. The  enquiry will probably lack the dramatic intensity of the  investigation  There will probably not be more  than two claims along the right-of-  way of the K. V. K. that will need to  be settled by arbitration. It now  looks as if this will be. the only means  of adjustment in two instances. In  one ease an orchard near the canyon,  a price of something over $2000 is demanded, while the right-of-way agent,  Logie says that $000 is as much as he  would be pistitied in paying. In the  other, on the Alkali Flat, a sum of  $'3750 has been asked, while Mr. Logie  states that he has had many of the  best men in the community put a  value on this laud, and in no case has  the value exceeded $500. He is willing  to pay that amount but no more.  There aie not many buildings on the  selected right-of-way. Some, however,  will have to be removed. All of Mr.  Bohan's buildings, are included except  his house, while Jas, Fyffe's stable  will require to be moved. The  most unfortunate one in this respect  is Mr. E. R. Faulder, the route including his house and other buildings, also  his garden and all similar improvements.���������Si'mmerlattd Review.

He said that lie would not at this  time authorize the closing of the Socialist halls, but he warned the Socialists that "in harboring and encouraging" the Industrial Workers,  they were "rushing into trouble."    A SHIFTY POLE  Southern Magnetic Pole is Not Constant  Here is a simple legal trouble  that'  came before the Court of Appeal that'  might easily  boa subject for discussion when all other subjects fail.  A year ago ,a clerk in the Bank of  Hamilton, Vancouver, Robert Gordon  Heddle found a wallet lying on a desk  in the bank, having obviously been  mislaid by somebody. The w allet contained $S00 in bills.  Heddle, as was his duty, handed  over the wallet to the teller, expecting  that, the owner would shortly return  and claim the wallet. No one came.  Several times the bank advertised in  the papers for the owner. Still no one  came.  Having done all he could to find the  owner, Heddle finally laid claim to  the ��������� purse. The bank refused to give  it up. Heddle said the money was  ���������'found" by him. The bank claimed  that the money had been merely "left  behind" by some client, and they must  continue to hold it as trustee.        " ���������  When the case came before his  Honor Judge Grant some time ago,  he ruled that the money had been  ���������'left behind," and that tho bank was  entitled to hold it. The Court of Appeal, which heard the case yesterday  afternoon, has reserved judgment on  the problem.  DAIRY PRODUCTS IN B. C.  eliciting superficial facts from wit  nesses -who cannot but be labouring  under supreme nervous tension. When  Lord Mersey has finished his work the  civilized world will know all that can  ���������ever be-known as to the greatest maritime disaster in the history of the  mercantile marine. That justice will  be done .though the heavens fall is  guaranteed by the .traditions of the  British A.clmiralty Court over which  this noble judge so ably presided.  SERVES HIM RIGHT  Canadians Disapprove of Peuchen's Censorious Carping  reported to have been discovered by  Durville in 1838, did not exist. The  expedition found Termination Land  which was originally discovered by  Wilkes. Numerous islands were discovered along the great ice barrier.  Dr. Mawson sent back by the Aurora a. letter, in which he describes the  southern magnetic pole as a force  centre, which, like a will of the wisp,  is advancing around daily within a  circular area, the diameter of which is  variable and uncertain. It may be a  few miles or more than thirty. The.  whole area it has travelled is 2-10 miles  in sixty.nine years.  Census statistics on dairying in'Can-  atla   shows    that   British   Columbia  stands fifth in  the production  of factory butter.     The four provinces that  iead  her are in  their order,  Quebec,  Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba.   Nov-1.  eitheless, British Columbia in the past,  ton   years has quadrupled, her output; -:  of factory butter." In the manufaeture���������--���������-  of cheese,  however, British Columbia.  is a sure  tailender   for   she   has   no.  cheese chalked  up to bar credit at all..  Ontario leads as  easy in  cheese production as Quebec does in butter.   The  number of  factories for  the manufacture of condensed milk  increased 300  per cent in the  ten years and British  Columbia has not  neglected  this  department of dairying.     She   was so  long dependent on  the tin  cow  herself that she has seen the need of help-,  ing out the supply.     The cheese   pro--  duction  in the whole dominion  is a  little higher quantity in the ten years,  but shows a decrease in value.  MINING NOTES  P. W.

After an   illness of several   months,  Mrs. Mary  E.  McTavisg,   wife of Mr.  Peter I).   McTavish.  of   1070   Nelson  street, died  yesterday  evening.    The  late  Mis. McTavish  was a bride of a  year,  and  previous  to  her  marriage  was Miss Mary E. Thompson, a native  of Paisley, Out.     She was an orphan,  and  is  survived  by a married  sister  living in Wolfville, N. S., and a brother,  Mr.  Edward  Thompson,   who   is  with  Macdonald,    Marpolc <fc  Co,   in  this city.

Mrs.    McTavish   was  a  trained nurse and followed her profession here for a. couple of  years before  her marriage.  A bond has been taken on the Rambler property on "Wallace Mountain  near Beaverdell. Work is also being  done on the Bounty Fraction and Diamond claims in that camp.  Gold values are said to be increasing  in the Copper Mountain properties  held under bond bv the B. C. Copper  Co.  The Mother Lode mine was the  scene of another great blast on Monday. There were 2,200 holes loaded  with 10 tons of dynamite and discharged by an electric wire. The explosion was a complete success. This  mini) is establishing a great reputation for blasting. Last October eleven  tons of powder were used in one blast  which gives Greenwood the world's  record in that department of mining.  -Ledge  The Slocan Record says that in every  town in B.

GENERAL NEWS  Ex-mayor Taylor, of the Vancouver  World,  didn't  like  his defeat at  the  hands of the electors of Rossland.    He  is  bringing action against the Nelson  News for damages.  Stuart Henderson, the Ashcroft  lawyer, who was arrested on a charge  of embezzlement was honorably acquitted after a hearing of about three  minutes and the charge should neyer  have been made. Some magistrates  are far too leady about granting warrants where a little care to know more  about the facts of a case would save  money to the government and annoyance to individuals.

Walter Long,, the .noted-.TIninnist  parliamentarian, is coming to Canada  to address a series of meetings on the  Irish. Home Rule Bill. As the electors  of.Canada .will have unvote on that,  question it is difficult to see what will  be gained by a propaganda on this  side of the water, unless it be to give  Canadians a. little enlightment on the  subject and show them the, difference  between the Home Rule we have in  Canada and the kind which Asquith  and the Nationalists are determined to  force on the people of Ulster. If Canadians understood the question better  they might be less disposed to offer  counsel or advice in matters they do  not understand.  ���������'Like the spirit of the Ironsides on  the morning of Dunbar" is the spirit  which imbues the loyalists of Ulster in  their opposition to Home Rule. So  said Bonar Law after his return from  Belfast where he had every opportunity to note the depth and intensity of  the feeling in Ulster against the nieas-  surc which proposes to hand them  over to the tender mercies of a gang  who have sworn to dismember the empire sooner or later and who have  openly avowed that this Home Rule  measure is regarded by them as a first  step m that direction. And yet there  are Canadians who without knowing  what they are doing allow their names  to be used by traitor journals in England as favoring Home Rule for Ireland���������a matter in which they have no  business to meddle.  Within about a week of each other  Britain has seen the passing of two of  her most eminent literary men. The  ill-fated Titanic took down with her  one in the person of W. T. Stead and  the other, .Justin McCarthy, novelist  and historian, died a few days later  from natural causes and full of years  for he had reached the ripe old age of  82. Stead was but 03 a ad had a score  more years of work in reserve if he  had been spared to toil them out to  the end. Stead was perhaps the more  brilliant man of the two and had the  ���������stronger personality, but tho Irishman  ' was the more popular because less  eccentric and less disposed to antago  nize.     For loyalty to personal convictions and devotion to  an ideal Stead'from right thinking people  The treatment to which  J.  Bruce  Ismav and the crew of the Titanic are  being subjected at the hands  of the  United States   Senate   investigating  .committee and the press of the United  (States is disgraceful.     In.view of-the  'fact that the'mishap took place  with  a British ship sailing with  a British  crew   and on the high seas   it is difficult to see on  what grounds  the investigation  can be justified at all.     It  s true that many of  the passengers  were citizens of the.United States and  also   that among   them   were some  millionaires, and of course 'a millionaire counts forsomcthing in the United States ; but these people were not  forced, to take passage in that particular ship  and it was  solely  a  matter  of  their own choice  that  they  were  there.     Neither has   it been    shown  that a majority of the .-passengers- hi;  any one   of  the three classes ������������������ were  Americans.      Indeed  there  is. reason  to believe   that they were in the minority. ��������� '��������� But setting aside all. this   it  is the -manner in which  the nivestiga  tion is  being  conducted   and   the national   animus   and   prejudice     that  seems to underlie the whole thing that  gives ground for complaint and places  the affair in a most unfavorable light.  The committee,: to  begin   with,   was  badly chosen.      The   Senate   of   the  United States  is supposed  to be made  up  of the best men of the nation   and  yet we have in the man   whom  they  have chosen  as the chairman    a blatant ignoramus who imagined that the  water-tight compartments   were dry  cubby-holes into which the.passengers  crept to keep out of the wet when the  ���������-hip sank .and affirmed solemnly and  didactically that icebergs   "consist of  rocks,, earth   and   other substances",  the  ice   being   of   such   a   negligible  quantity as  to. be unworthy  of any  special mention  but must be included  in the general term 'other substances.'  The worst   feature,   however,   is  the  forcible detention   and treating  citizens of another country as criminal  suspects when no charge has been laid  against them.    Biassed as the inquiry  itself has been   it was fair in comparison with the way the yellow journals  have been  acting.     Some  friend  has  sent the.  Gazette copies of  the New  York World and New York  Journal  under date of April 20       These   have  flaring headlines of all manner of low  and insulting stuff about Ismay, one of  them transposing the name  and  calling him "Yamsi"  and demanding of  him to explain why he  is  alive  when  1000  were   drowned.      One   of   them  tells how the  federal wireless  on  one  of the U. S. warships had caught a  message to the Cedric showing that  Ismay was "planning to escape the  country" and this was reported to the  senate committee which frustrated  the attempt. The Journal quotes the  widow of John B. Thayer as saying  of her husband: "The name 'coward'  ran never be associated with him.  Better a thousand times a dead John  B. Thayer than a live J. Bruce Ismay".  It is not right to judhe the woman too  harshly on no better evidence than  the Journal as to whether she said it  or not; but if she did say it she rendered herself undeserving of sympathy  Horse-shoeing and all  Blacksmith -Work,-a-  Promptly attended *to.  .,���������''.

The fishing has been, very good during the past few weeks, both in  Twenty-mile and the Siniilkanieeh  river, although the biggest trout have  been captured in the river.  A. B. Clabon was elected president  of a new Mining Men's Club .formed in  Vancouver last week. He has lately  brought his bride to Vancouver.  Honors are coming his way fast these  tinier;.  Prof. Browuell, piano-tuner, of Penticton, spent Sunday in Hedley and  on Sunday evening at the church service rendered a sacred selection that  was appreciated by the pastor and  congregation.

There has been no marked increase  in the volume if water in either  Twenty-mile or tlie Similkameen river.  There is more water than they re-  qulre in running partially with steam  but hot enough to run with water  alone. In about another , week it is  expected that it will have increased  .sufficiently to enable the water-whei  to drive all.  Fifty seven inches inches of snow  was the fall at the Nickel Plate mine  for the. week ending Saturday 27th  and -fifty-four inches for the week preceding that. Last year the big month's  snow was ths month of May, when  the snowfall for the month reached  112 inches, but that record has been  beaten all to pieces by the snowfall  of the month that has -just ended.  The total snowfall for April 1012 was  21.8 inches.  Tom Marks played to good houses in  Hedley on Thursday and Friday evenings of last week. The play for the  first night was to have been "His Irish  Honor" but they changed it to "The  Peacemaker" and the change was a  very good one for it is by all odds the  better play of the two and it was well  put on by the company, Tom Marks  as the Irish servant was effective but  the strongest work was done by Kane  as Father Whalen. The vaudeville  acts were particularly good.  A party of B. C. Copper Company's  officials fiom Greenwood came in by  auto on Sunday evening on their way  to Copper Mountain on a visit of in-  sped ion to the Voigt properties which  the Company have under bond am  are exploring. The party consisted of  Fred Iveffer, consulting engineer; E.  G. Warren, general manager; and  Messrs. E. Hibbert, H. G. Hargreaves  and C .Mitchell. They were riding a.  55 h. p. Stevens - Duryea cat which  manager Wairen was handling with  all the freedom of an old-time chauffeur. The car must be a hill-climber  for it negotiated all the stiff grades  on the Copper Mountain road, on  which there was also a. liberal depth of  clay mire which was so unyielding as  to require power on the machine to  get through it in returning down the  hill. They stayed over Monday night  in Hedley on their return.  W. Dubois, a mining man, was in  town for a few days this week.  .- C. H. Brookes is expected  to arrive  in Hedley in a few days.  Tho water has been increasing slightly in the past few days. The weather  keeps so cool on the higher levels that  thawing is very slow.  The Rev. Norman Plass and wife  caiiie in Tuesday.
