A new somce of income for the Gia-  11 by Co. has developed through the  lesumption of dividends by the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. of which Gran by  owns 7,000 shares. Directors have  now put the coal stock on a 6 per cent  basis through the declaration of a  quarterly disbursement of .$150 per  share. This will place $12,000 a year  in the Granby   treasury.���������Trail News.  A ten-stamp mill will be installed on  the property of Merrick & Thompson  near Ladner.Creek. The ore is mainly  free- milling gold ore, although there  are also deposits of sulphides carrying  values of silver. The properties are  reached by following the Coquihalla  River for 16 miles from Hope and then  travelling about two miles upMt. Merrick. A couple of miles away, towards  the headwaters of Ladner Creek, are  the propei ties of .John O'Connell and  associates who have very extensive  showings of ore of similar character.  fine and dandy at the present time.  Well Bill. I will   tell you right-'away  this will not.be. much of a letter as we  are very  busy  building   our dug-outs  these days.     XV n an-   upon I he   firing  line at a place culled Atuioquin, which  is about   two   miles   from   La   Basse,  which town   is at the. piOM-nt'   time in  the hands of the  Germans, so you can  guess we are  right in the   midst  of if.  and I might tell   you that I'an'i a'gunner   now.     I have    lost   my   team   of  horses just as- they were   beginning to  know me..  Bui never   mind, if I   had  remained a   driver I would   not  have  ���������.-ecu much of the firing line. . You see  they took a bunch ���������of our gunners for  1 he staff, that's signalling, range-finding, etc., which   left our battery shoit  of gunnels, so our   sargeant asked me  if .1- would like -to b--'a -gunner, ���������-! said  sine, so here I am, sending iron rations  over to   the   Germans   every  day   in  pretty large quantities.    Say Bill, you  aie missing   the lime of your life, not  being over   hen*,   we dont   get   much  money but we do.see life.    Believe me  if the Germans send   over one shell we  send over ten with our greetings written on them.    The day   before yesterday they   gave us a tousing   but they  did not do' much damage,   there   were  only two   injmed in   our battery   and  none   of our   guns   thank  God.    But  some of these shells come pretty close,  just   close enough to make year think  of home   once in   awhile.    The   same  day they   brought   down two of   our  aeroplanes with  two men injured, not  seriously,   one of them   right  in front  of our guns,   so we  had to   quit firing  and,just   watch   him come   down, all  the tail of  his machine  busted, but he.  did not "'lose control   of his   machine.  .He was   hit in the  legs with shrapnel.  I was on guard last night at the O.P.  observation   station   and   believe   me  that is the   place to   watch,   the .shells  burst.    You are just   behind th** English first line trench.     It was  a fright.  We were   in some   ruins and we have  to  tell the   telephone opeiotor   where  the   shells   burst,   whether   they   arc  short   or too long,   and he  phones   to  the battery and   they alter  the range.  I tell you   it was not a   very   pleasant  experience.    If   the     Germans     ever  thought   we were   there  they   would  shell us out. As we weie coming away  at 1 in the   morning they were bringing out the   poor fellows who had got  it in the night.  This afternoon there were 18 of our  aeroplanes Hew over La Bassee and  shelled the town, a little levenge, I  guess.  Well, Billy, I hope you are not having a very severe winter and that it is  not getting too cold.  Please, remember me to your father  and mother and Katie, I sent her a  card the other day and to some of the  Other folk at the mine.

The estimated total for the  whole province being $600,000 and  Vancouver taking care of the splendid  sum of $300,000 or half of the total,  these mining towns, are responsible for  mote than one-third of the other half,  or nenrly an average of $6.00 for every  person in the district. This with a  total population of less than 20,000,  On behalf of Princeton, it is only  fair to state that the amount credited  to her is away below the mark, her  contribution amounting to nearer  $4,000 and this in view of a very considerable decrease in her population  and the poorest, year in the coal business that the . country has . seen for  sometime. Silverton-with its $12,000  looks mighty fine, but they all have  to take off their hats to little Hedley  who with a scant 400 people contributes $9,000 or nearly $25.00 a head.

Editor  For Belgium  Vol, 1, No. 1 of "Pro Belgica"  the Canadian .friend, of'Belgium  published at Montreal, is to  hand. With four pages of Five  columns each. It is printed in  English and French and contains some very'interesting information with regard to that  unhappy country's condition  and needs. The object of the  paper is to enlist the sympathy  of Canadians in the cause of the  distressed Belgians.  Knowing as we do, that it  was the action of Belgium in  standing in the breach, which  made it possible for the hated  Hun advance to be halted and  finally stopped, the appeal  ought to lay hold on us with  special tenacity.  "There are more than 2,000,000  destitute women and children  in Belgium and Northern France  who Avill suffer for months  without proper shoes and clothing if the Commission for Relief  in Belgium . does not receive  thousands of dollars more during the next few weeks."  The Gazette knows of no  other charity which makes a  more rightful appeal than this  one and we are glad to know  that some of our people at least  are giving some of their money  to this worthy cause. $2.50  keeps a Belgian family a month.  In subscribing for "Pro Belgica" you will not only learn  what is going on in Belgium but  you will at the same time help  to support Belgium's martyrs,  as all money derived from the  paper will go towards the funds  of the relief work for the victims of the war in Belgium.  The price of subscription is only  one dollar a year. Send it to  Pro Belgica, 397 Viger Square,  Montreal, P. Q.  The appeal which Hon. Lome  Campbell made in the local  house last week ought to meet  with the approval of all citizens  of B. C. who have not lost their  heads completely oh the matter  of politics. In answer to the  calamity-howlers he said:  "If the Opposition, continues  its attacks against the credit of  the Province the mining and  reduction companies will find it  extremely difficult to secure the  money they require and which  could be most profitably invested, in developing the large ore  reserves of the country, and  which is necessary if the country is to supply the munition  factories with the raw metal  material required for their  work of supplying munitions  for the Empire's armies."  To carrry a grouch seems to  be chronic .with some people.  Of course when you are out and  want to be in, it probably is  easier to imagine that the whole  country is going to the bowwows because you are out. But  knocking and grouching has  become a habit with some people and they dont realize that  they are doing it at  all.  flvery & Avery  PRINCETON, B.C.

Next thing  Amid the clamor, mostly part-  izan, that has been raised over  the situation in Victoria, only  one consideration will appeal  to the average man who does  not sweeten his porridge with  with politics in the morning and  mix his "nightcap" with more  of the same condiment at night,  and that consideration is the  public business of the Province.  Whether there has been a blunder in regard to the life of the  legislature or not, the public interest of this Province demands  that the legislature sit and  transact the business of the  Province. Furthermore, the  public does not care much  whether the business to be done  in the legislature is contentious'  or not, from the point of view  of either opposition or the government."���������J P's Weekly.

Washington JX C THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, MARCH 80.  1HIH  Verdun, at   which the   new (lei man  offensive    in llu;    west    appears to    hi-  aimed, was .-in   important town at the  time of the   Roman conqni'st of Gaul.  It \\ as desti oyed   during tin- period of  Harbaric invasion and did not   recover  until the end of   the fifth century.     In  the tenth    century Verdun    was   conquered    by the    Germans   and   placed  under the .���������iiithorityof-iis bishops.     In  the eleventh centniy    the firo hingers  of the town    began a  struggle against  German rule, which ended in their ob  tabling   certain     rights   during     the  twelfth century.    In 1,">5!I Henry II  of  France   took   possession   of the   city,  which again   b?eame   French   by  the  tieatyof    Westphalia.     In 1792.  after  some hours of  bombaidinent, the citi  zens  opened   their gates   to the Prussian's--a   weakness for   which some of  the citizens were punished severely by  the revolutionary government then in  power in France.  In 1871 the Germans  were unable to storm Verdun hut they  invested   it   and   finally   captured   it  after a   sustained  bombardment.    Its  fortifications   especially  its   outer defenses, have been enormously strengthened since   the outbreak of the present war.  The Badge of Honor  The following is reproduced from the  Toronto "Star" of February 1-Ith:  "With the memory of the Walker  House affair clinging to the public  mind to the detriment of officers, in  spite of the official exoneration, an  incident that occurred on a Blnor car  to-day should have been seen by all  civilian Toronto to prove that there  are officers and officers.  The Bloor car was fairly crowded  and all seats were taken. One of those  seated was a young oftier. He had the  aloof and rather superior air that the  uniform  gives.  At Bay and Queen streets a private  soldier boarded the car. He was just  jin ordinary soldier, except that he  was not wearing puttees, was rather  pale-looking, and on his coat wore a  small, round bronze button.  He walked into the car. Suddenly  the young officer sitting* near the  front of the car leaped to his feet and  beckoned to the soldier. The soldier  saluted. The officer returned the salute fully.  "Come and sit here," said the officer,  pointing to his seat.  "I'm all right sir!" said the soldier,  apparently embarrassed. The people  in the car stared in astonishment at  the little drama.  "Come sit down here, old man," said  said the officer.    "Come on !"  The soldier sat down. The young  officer held out his hand and the two  shook hands mightily.  "One of the 3rd Battalion, eh!" said  the officer. What's your name? Where  were you done up?   Ypres,, ah!"  And then those within hearing  tumbled to the fact that the private  soldier was   one of   the men returned  For the Grand Forks Company  Communicate with  Lieut E. L. STENSTROM,-  Officer Commanding:  Grand Forks, B. O.  &  from the trenches, and that the young  officer, hanging on the strap and taking such an eager interest' was simply  paying due respect to one who had  done his bit. The little bronze button  that meant nothing to the civilians  had caught the young officer's eye and  had meant everything."  The action of this young officer  should be the rule rather than the exception. Indifference of the public,  towards the men who have returned  to Canada from the trenches of Flanders is neither indicative of gratitude  that we should feel nor encouraging  to others who are debating the question of enlistment. In Great Britain,  the returned soldier has right-of-way.  He should receive prim* consideration  in Canada. The little bronze button  given him by the Patriotic Fund  should be his passport to our esteem,  respect and consideration.  .*9'--33333S3333333'-339333'*3338ji  $    TEN YEARS AGO    $  i}\                              iii  /p From the Hedley  Gazette Files   {���������>  *                 of March 29, 1900 jjj  '*- &  <-*&&:&: esssee s* ess- s*e sss ss* &*  Reports come from Keremeos of  greater activity in raihvay construction. Larger gangs are being worked  and the cry is for more men.  The cheery chirp of the robins which  has been heard frequently during the  past ten days is an evidence that the  spring weather which we are now getting is the genuine article.  Gus McDermott came down from  the Apex this week. He reports a  force of seven men at work on the  Apex and that development has been  prosecuted continuously all winter.  There is about four feel of snow  around Apex Camp.  Drilling is progressing satisfactorily  on the Humming-bird. For a time  the ground was too soft and crumbling which   made operations   difficult,  but they are now in solid rock and better progress is being made.  The new machines are being placed  in the machine shop of the Daly Reduction Co, and are likely loouing affairs which should do the work required of them. .-...-'.  Mr. Alex. Miller, of Greenwood came  over on the.flyer last week to visit his  sister, Mrs. W. E. Burrittand was the  guest of Mr. and Mrs. Burritt for a  few days, Mr. Miller reports prosperous times in the Boundary where all  the beginning concerns are making  money and other lines of business  flourishing in consequence of this. He  expects  more attention   to be paid to  the Similkameen during the coming  summer, and more, still after the railway reaches here, for the long hard  stage trip is not likely to prove attractive to many who would otherwise  like to come in to see the country. Mr.  Miller has reiently made some succes  ful deals in mining in the Boundary,  which are likely to add materially to  tli������ general prosperity, and it is hoped  that he will find time during the'summer to investigate conditions in this  camp as well.
