(Of his modus operandi  Only this much I could gather:���������  " Pears shaving sticks will give you  Little taste and lots of lather.")  ���������Kipling.  The leading editorial in  last week's  Star was devoted to  L. W. Shatford,  M. P. P.,  and was of the usual lurid  hysterical type. . The grievance is that  Mr. Shatford had failed to pay Princeton a visit after the election, and the  red rag which provoked the hysterical  outbreak'whs an' innocent personal in  the Gazette which stated that  "Mr.  Shatford had planned a trip to Princeton for the end of the week, but that  tho break-up of sleighing had  interfered."    Here was proof positive that  Mr. Shatford was down on  Princeton  and as he must have.," dictated "  the  personal  in the Gazette and hod"neglected to own property in  Princeton  there was apparently no end to which  he  would go in   heaping  contumely  upon  that town.  Now Mr. Shatford dictates nothing  for the Gazetted    Neither does anyone  else except the editor.    Therein  the  Gazette  differs  altogether   from   the  Star.      Furthermore,   all   the   editor  knew about the contemplated trip to  Princeton was an invitation from  Mr.  Shatford   to" accompany  him   there,  which invitation was accepted several  days before the date upon which  we  were to go.    The change in the weather,   meanwhile,   altered   conditions  altogether,  and it was the editor who  refused  to go when there was every  probability of heing hung up on  the  road, for there was no  sleighing from  Hedlev to  Sterling Creek,  and W. F.  Revely,  who was called up by phone,  stated that the stage managed to get  through by starting early in the morning from Princeton and getting over  the part where the snow was deepest  before the frost got out.     It was  to  convince    Mr.  Shatford   of   the   risk  which would be run, and dissuade him  from makine* the attempt, that inquiries were made of Mr. Revely.  But since  the Star has seen   fit to  attach so much importance to the visit  we have read again its fulmination, to  endeavor to find out  what particular  event was to take place on the arrival  of the member at Princeton  to create  such disappointment,  and have failed  to find it.    Possibly some semi-regal  civic function was in view.   The fact  that the editor of the Star had gone  to the expense of procuring an electro  of himself looked as if a splurge of  some kind  was to take place,  and  it  was very thoughtless of Mr. Shatford  if he knew about it not to make some  mention  of it to the Gazette.    So far  as neglect is concerned there are many  other places  in  the  riding that have  not been visited by him since the election, and most of them he has not seen  since he. was last at Princeton. Among  these   are     Beaverdell,    Westbridge,  Rock Creek, Sidley, Camp McKinney,  Osoyoos, Okanagan Falls, Green Mountain, Olalla and others.  . The whole tea-pot tempest over so  trivial an affair, is decidedly ludicrous,  but it goes to show how small may he  the pretext  upon which some  people  can   make   themseves   froth   at    the  mouth,   if  they can   get a little bit of  British Columbia's eleventh parliament wiis opened on the 7th inst. by  Lieut-governor Dunsmuir.  In the choice of a speaker D. M. Eb-  erts, of Saanich, was moved by Price  Ellison and seconded by C. W., Munro,  of Chilliwack.  The speech from the throne showed  that there would be considered during  the session a bill to amend the assess-  ment act looking to a. reduction in real  and personal taxes ;   a bill concerning  petroleum lands in S. E. Kootenay ; an  an amendment to the fisheries act; the  consideration    of   financial . relations  with the Dominion ; the setting apart  of lands for a provincial university; a  scheme for irrigation ; the assertion of  rights of the province in Indian lands,  and measures to promote immigration.  ��������� Those who have the  welfare of the  mining industry at heait will be gratified iii noting that there is the continued absence of any disposition to meddle.with the mineral act.  The address was moved by Thomson  of Victoria and seconded by Dr. Mc-  Guire of Vancouver.  The leader of the opposition was not  present owing to illness, and John  Oliver is acting leader in his absence.  !

The composition of the igneous complex of Copper mountain is very variable, ranging from very siliceous in  the north and west to a more basic  variety in  the south and east.   The  typical   rock   is   hornblende   diorite.  This is best developed in the south and  east, where it has not been affected by  mineralizers or altered by later igneous  intrusions.     In places where this is in  contact with some remnants of the  older sedimentaries,  a gneissic structure has  been  induced in it.   To the  centre and north it has been fractured  and brecciated,  and is now  traversed  by many little veins of calcite magnetite and felspar.   The rock has also  become finer in grain.   Large crystals  of biotite are often developed in   the  zone, of fracture.' The contact between  the diorite and  the sedimentaries is  very irregular whenever it is exposed.  It is rarely  sharply  defined and in  many cases no definite boundary can  be assigned  to  the igneous rock.    It  occurs under so many different types  of dikes, with which it becomes intimately mixed, that it is often difficult in  the field to separate the different  intrusions.  Lower Cretaceous.���������These rocks  cover* a .wide area in the southwest  corner of the district. They appear on  the Pasayton river just north of the  boundary line and striking about 330������,  cross the Roche river about six miles  above the junction of that river with  the Pasayton. At both these places  they are seen to overlie the eruptive  rocks. The beds consist of hard sandstones and grits, interbedded with  black and red argillaceous slates, all of  which appear to have suffered much  stress and pressure, for* the angles of  dip are now all high, being usually  about 50������. On the Roche river the  bottom bed is a conglomerate, which  rests directly on the syenite to the  north of it.  Tertiary-.���������-The   remaiuing    rocks  are all of Tertiary age; and, grouping  the Sedimentary rocks with the volcanic,  we ���������'find  that they   cover   the  largest proportion of the district.   The  sedimentary rocks alone in the northern part of the district cover an  area  of nearly fifty square miles���������the basin  being fourteen  miles long with a variable width of from three to five and a  half miles.     The   sedimentary   rocks  consist of thick   beds   of  sandstone,  with clay,  shales and several seams of  coal.   The base of the series appears to  be a   very   coarse-grained   sandstone  containing many large rounded white  felspars in a matrix of calcareous material.   This rests, on the eastern side  of the basin,  on the Copper Mountain  series of rocks;   while on  nearly all  other boundaries,  the sediments dip  under the more recent volcanic rocks,  which lie as sheets on them.    In parts,  also, these volcanics have thrust them  -^  ������ -rJlA'MQNJrVALE TO SHIP.  Nicola Coal Will  Begin Moving on the  First of May���������Development  Operations.  Coal from the Nicola valley will he  produced in abundance during the  coming .summer, and much of it should  be available for .domestic use in Vancouver* next winter, says the News-  Advertiser. T. J. Smith, of the Diamond Vale Iron ������fc Coal Mines, Ltd.,  has returned to the coast from a trip  to the company's property at Coutlee,  and states that good progress is being  made with sinking the shaft. Between  50 and' 75 men are at work, and the  hole will go down at the rate of nearly  one hundred feet per month.  The sawmill machinery has arrived  on the ground at the Forks and is being rapidly set up for operation. The  plant is a large one,and when in working order lumber will soon be plentiful  for the construction of the various  mine buildings.  J. O. Sullivan, assayer, of Vancouver, has just completed the assaying of a number of specimens of the ���������  Diamond Vale coal, and in submitting  his report states that the product is of  excellent bituminous quality and compares favorably with the best on Vancouver Island or the mainland. It is  also a good coking coal.  FAIRVIEW NOTES.  The Rev. St. John Mildmay visited  the ���������Stemwinder', and to use his  own words, "descended into the bowels of the earth." He was very pleased  with the mine and plant.     ,  C. J. Rippin of the Park Ranch took  a load of potatoes to the Stemwinder  boarding house on Tuesday last.  Provincial constable Sproule has returned from his poll tax collecting expedition.  Word has just come to hand-that  Bill Lacey, well known in Fairview  and Hedley died a few days back, on  the ranch of his brother Tom at Kruger Mountain. Bill had been sick for  some months back, but merided sufficiently to attend and castiiis vote at  Fairview on 2nd Feb, last, and those  who knew him were in hope that he  would quite recover from   his   illness.  J. G. Wallace, who has been living  at the Stemwinder for the past three  years is removing with his wife to  Olalla where he intends to reside.  selves through the sediments and now  appear as islands in the older rocks.  The strata do not now lie horizontally,  but have been tilted at low angles,  making an irregular series of folds.  Some faults also occur.

The Manitoba elections have come  and gone, and the Roblin government  which went to the country on its record and on a progressive railway  policy has secured a. splendid triumph,  beating their opponents by 20 to 13,  with two more elections to come on  later, which are counted safe for the  government.  The Free Press which played about  the same role in the contest which the  Victoria Times and Vancouver World  did here, has been taught the same  lesson. Another feature of the contest in the prairie province was the  fact that some over zealous temperance advocates, among whom were  college professors and clerics who campaigned from the pulpit, were given  vigorous rebuffs from quarters where  they thought they were immune.  seams, and with some good results.  Most of them, nowevcr, were put down  at or near the edge of the seam and  only one near the western edge of the  basin.    By the kindness of Mr. Ernest  Waterman, manager of the Vermilion  Forks Mining and Development Company,  copies of  the records of these  drills have been obtained.   These have  disclosed the thickest coal seams to he  the yicinitv of the town of Princeton,  where a bed   over  eighteen  feet   in  thickness was struck   at a depth  of  forty-nine   feet   below   the   surface.  The   hole,  in  which   this   seam   was  found, was sunk  near the bridge over  the Similkameen  river to a depth of  280 feet,    in this  hole coal scams aggregating thirty-five feet seven inches  were crossed in the first ninety feet,  while the rest was in  shales and sandstones.    Four miles up the Similkameen river a, bore hole sunk to a depth  of 257 feet only went through two feet  five inches of coal; while a drill hole  near the south end of the basin at  Ashnola, which penetrated to a depth  of 398 feet, gave no workable seam at  Ed.

Dr. White made a flying trip in frcm  Fairview on   Saturday.  S. D. Hine is transforming the back  portion of his store, and intends to reside on the premises in future. Sam  is very proud of his handiwork.  R. H. Parkinson is on a business  trip to the Similkameen.  The past severe winter has caused  the death of hundreds of wild horses*  between the Incameep reservation  and McCuddy's.  If a freight team does not soon get  in there will be a famine in town. At  time of writing it is impossible to get  butter, bacon, coal oil or rolled oats in  any of the stores and the stock of other aomestibles is low. 'There was a  whiskey famine a short time back, but  such a serious thing could not be permitted and mine hosts Jones and Morris made strenuous and successful efforts to relieve the situation by procuring a supply of mountain dew.

The mountains are so high  and close here, and the valley at this  point taking so decidedly an east and  west trend, a display of northern  lights must be ofexceptional brilliancy  to be seen at all, but on Monday night  the town was well lit up, the greater  part of the mountains on the south  having the appearance of being bathed  in moonlight. Later on in the evening the wavy light and quickly changing forms were much in evidence, .2  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   MARCH   14,   1907.

At present we hear in certain quarters murmurs -of ..discontent at the system in vogue for distribution of public patronage, and the party system of  government comes in for some hard  raps for its management of the civil  service; but we-mustn't conclude too  hastily that simply because these  liiunnui-eis have tacked on to their  little agitation the high-sounding title  of   "civil  service, reform"   their  mot- j genuine reform.    Neither do we  con-  ives are at all times as altruistic   as  sic-iei. party distribution of patronage  ifacl that it was the Conservatives that  first insisted .'upon  efficiency,  and  to  secure  it inaugurated  the system  of  civil   service   examinations,    in    this  connection it,may also he stated   that  on the accession   of   the   Liberals   to  power in 1806," the civil service exams,  were   virtually    suspended     for two  years so far as making the  passing of  an examination a requisite for obtaining an' appointment   was   concerned.  Novices who had never passed the examinations were crowded into the. service to take  the place of thoroughly  qualified Conservatives .who were let  out; and the civil service exams,   that  took place for the next two years were  a. mere farce  to  make a pretence of  having the hungry neophytes qualify.  Economy  in   the  civil  service  and  civil service reform were .preached-on  all sides before 1S96,   hut the manner  in which it was carried out reminded  one of the. trite little, jingle in  Hudi-  bras:  *" When the devil was sick.  The devil a saint would bo:  Hut when the devil got well.  The devil a saint was he.''  But it is far from the Gazette to wish  to put a single thing in the way of  civil    service reform'-that'-would  be  they would have the public believe  them to be. Especially is this the case  when we examine more closely into  the records of some of the professed  advocates of this new doctrine that is  after all not a new doctrine but the  revival of an old principle that Canadians at one time, prided themselves  in possessing.  Formerly Canadians were in the  habit of pointing to the. United States  where the spoils system of patronage  dominated the whole civil service, and  where at each turn-over of the government, tlie officials all recognised the  inevitable and quietly vacated their  offices to avoid summary dismissal,  while in Canada we prided ourselves  that honesty and efficiency were the  only requisites to hold permanently a  position in the public service. And  that the possession or fancied possession of this principle was not altogether a myth there were to be found in  almost every community, in the early  nineties, postmasters anil other officials, some, of whom had received their  appointments in the first parliament  following Confederation, and others  during the MacKen/.ie regime from  1S7M to 187S. But moralists tell mh  that "vice, that monster of such awful mien" needs only to camp around  in the vicinity to make himself familiar, and after a while the hugging  point is reached. So it was with Cana-  dians and the spoils system of patronage across the lines.  Of the first thirty years of Confederation the Conservatives held power in  federal politics for* twenty-five of them  but most of the legislatures were Liberal, and outside of the post offices  had therefore the greatest amount of  patronage to bestow in civil service  appointments. That the status of  civil servants was at times a vexed  question, and that the spoils system  of our near neighbors was becoming  attractive, we have only to note the  fact that so great a politician  as Sir  an essential to party government. On  tlie contrary we believe that party  government would be. better rid of it;  and a permanent n on-partisan civil  service, if the. genuine article can be  secured, is a goal that honest citizens  may do well to strive for. There are,  however, some limitations to be plainly kept in view, if the other and more  important principle of representative  government is to be maintained. One  of these limitations is a proper bound  to the indecency of taking a conspicuous part in election campaigns, and  another is to obey implicitly the orders  of departmental superiors and any attempt at cavil or* to thwart the efforts  of a departmental bead to initiate any  reform should be visited with summary dismissal.  But there are some things that may  be dubbed "civil service reform" that  would be more correctly classified  among the more flagrant abuses of  bureaucracy. Fancy a. road supervisor, for instance, taking the ground  that a certain community of electors  who may need a road to, their settlement have no right to ask the. government through their representative  for such road; and that he and he  alone, is the one who should have the  say whether such road should or  should not be built. If he should do so  (and they sometimes do) it would'then  be a proper proceeding on the part of  these electors to tell their representative that before they can think of polling another vote for him, he must  have that particular brand of supervisor fired forthwith; else what will  become of our boasted system of representative government?  There was no word of a non-parti-  zan ciyil service among the Liberals of  Ontario so far as the allotment of positions under the provincial government  was concerned during the long thirty-  four* years from 1870 to 1905, but now  the new leader Graham who is at the  head of the Liberal opposition pins his  The Lord's Day, Alliance are. particularly active just now  meddling with  governments all and  sundry on  the  enforcement of the Lord's  Day Act.  Whatever good  the   law may effect  elsewhere, .������. rigid enforcement of it  here, such as, urged by  the  Alliance,.,  would he of questionable expedience.  In  a mining camp where the miners  have been used to working on Sundays  and don't want the Sunday law,  the  Alliance will. be'.very  much mistaken  if it thinks  that these men  will   he  made church-goers by any such process of coercion.    On the contrary, the  resentment   which   it   will  arouse is  more likelv to  result in moral decline  than moral advancement,  and the immediate  result which  may be looked  for is an increase in Sunday drinking  and Sunday gambling.    The trouble is  that those Avho are active in  movements of this kind are  often- too far  removed from the conditions to fully  understand   the harm their mistaken  zeal  may   often   do,   and  they   think  that  all   that is; necessary to accomplish moral reform is to get a plethora  of this sort of legislation on the statutes,  regardless* of whether there  is  any likelihood  of its  enforcement or  not.    If they  would take  a turn 'at  sharing  the odium of enforcement of  such   laws   for   the   advancement   of  morals as are already on  the statutes  before putting on anything more drastic in the same direction  they would  get a better- idea cf-the real  condition  of things.     The Lord's Day Act itself  is in  many respects a  very  imperfect  and  inconsistent affair.     It exempts  smelters from the operation of the act,  and doesn't recognize  the fact   that  there are ether metallurgical processes  not exempted that would be as seriously effected by the arbitrary cessation  of operations  on Sunday as in '.smelt?  ing.    Here in  Hedley  we   have   had  both systems tried as far as they could  be:   for even when a conscientious attempt was made to observe Sunday it  was found to be impossible to abandon  all  the  work,  and there was more or  less disjointing of the system by  the.  cessation  of operations  in  part.    As  for morality,   it is a matter of opinion  as to whether morals  were, advanced  or not by the. so-called quiet Sunday.  At all events, those upon whose shoulders fell the responsibility of dealing  with    infractions   of    the    law   and  breaches of the peace are in a position  to institute comparisons and to know  when they have had least trouble and  fewer unpleasant things tp deal with.

Parties who have been up on the  flume state that the reports of damage  from frost were, not only exaggerated  but were apparently wholly untrue,  there being no apparent evidence of  bursting anywhere. The water had  been turned out before the flume had  frozen solid, and in this way any ice  that had formed while, the, water was  in motion through the channel in the  centre was not allowed to reach the  point where its rending force from expansion could be attained. Last week  water was turned in and flowed freely  through the portion which it was allowed to pass through. In fact if this  ice shell could he kept in all summer  it would furnish the town with deli-  ciously cool drinking water.  Potatoes and Onions FOR  SALE.

Latest word from the south states  that the track-layer is at work again,  the American steel having arrived and  steel been laid across the . Similkameen bridge. Just how much further  the track has been laid has not been  ascertained, although some rumors  are.going about to the effect thao the  track is nearing. the Night-hawk, but  this is regarded as improbable. v  Ifc was common rumor on Saturday  that Tom Brown who has been a resident of Hedley for the past three, years  had been informed by wire that he had  fallen heir to -������SO,000 by the deatli of a'  relative in England. He has been up  at the Nickel Plate all winter and various tillicums in town were awaiting  his arrival down the trail this week.  No definite data could be secured to  verify the rumor.  The last few services in Hedley have  begun to look as if the town is going  to acquire the church-going habit.  The attendance on Sunday night was  every seat being occupied.

A highly imaginative writer Avho is  alleged to have his abode at 'Hedlev  has been assuring coast papers that  there is to he no high Avater in the  Similkameen this year because the  snoAv is going gradually and the water  is being carried off. This prophetic  being says that Twenty-mile and the  Similkameen rise t\A*o feet twery day  and fall the same amount each night,  and that by that means the water is  being carried off. Residents, however,  knoAV that the very opposite is the  fact, and that, instead of running a  good volume of Avater as in other years  at this time, Twenty-mile is doing  practically nothing, and this circumstance gives rise to the fear that this  year may Avitness unusually high  AAvtter.  To show that our weather ills this  year have not  been   imaginary  and  that Ave have a gonuino. kick coming  for undue severity it is only necessary  to  make a comparison of this year  Avith others.   The meteorological report* for 1906 and 1907 sIioav that from  the first of January until the ninth of  March the; mean temperature has been  loAver at Hedley every week than the  corresponding Aveek  of last year by  several degrees.    Up at the mine there  Avei-e only tAvo weeks of 1907 that Avere  warmer than the corresponding weeks  of last year-.     Those were the last tAvo  Aveeks   of  .February.       The   present  Aveek, however,  is likely to figure out  a more favorable mean temperature at  Hedley than the corresponding week  of last year,  for in 1906 the Aveek ending March 17th was the coldest Aveek  of the year,  Avith a. mean temperature  of 22.14 degrees.

THE UPPER SIMILKAMEEN.I  Continued from .Page One  all, and only a few  bands  of Avhat  is  called in the record ' coaly shale.'    <.  A bore hole was also drilled near the  western edge of the basin, Avhere the  sediments dip under the volcanics, and  not far from where there is an outcrop  of coal four feet thick. The depth of  the hole is S03 feet, and in that distance seventeen seams of coal Avere.cut  through with an aggregate thickness  of fifty, and a half feet, of Avliich the  thickest seam.was nine feet.  From a. study of these records it-  ' would'appear that most, though not  all, of the workable.seams are Avithin  300 feet of the surface. It must be  noted, however; that1 no prospecting  l)Ar drilling has been done north of the  Similkameen river, and the basin undoubtedly extends as far north at least  as the forks of Ono mile creek.   ,:''  Coal outcrops in many places, both  on the '-Similkameen and Tulameen  rivers, also on Summers creek, Bromley creek and Nincmile. At the latter  place a cut in the bank made ��������� by the  stream discloses a bed fifteen feet in  thickness, of fairly clean coal, with  five thin partings of clay, all resting  on white clay.    -  A sample from the big seam at  Princeton, worked.by the. -Vermilion  Forks Mining Company, was sent to  Mr.'Hoffmann of the Department. He  calls it a lignite, but one of the better  class.    Analysis by fast coking   gave :  Hygroscopic water  10.17  Volatile.combustible matter ... 37.5S  Fixed carbon   -..'  41.67  Ash  4.5S  PROPERTY IN  Is  A  Good,   Safe  100.00  Coke per cent.     40.25  Character of coke, pulverulent; color of ash, brownish-yelliiAv.  ' Though the. age of these beds is put  down as the same as the Cold water  group of the Nicola valley in Avhich  coal occurs, there is a difference in the  quality of the fuel contained in each.  The Nicola coal is considerably higher  infixed carbon and lower in water,  but the amount of ash is also higher.  Some of the beds of the Princeton coal  basin are only in a primary staire of  formation, and they still show the  brown woody fibre of the slightly altered vegetable remains. Some also  have been completely destroyed by.  combustion, and it is to the combustion of an underlying bed of lignite  that Dr. Dawson attributed the meta-  morphism and color of the rocks at  the Vermilion bluffs.  The volcanic rocks of Tertiary age  have a Avide distribution, and prove  that this part of the country was the  scene of tremendous volcanic activity  during that period. Their area must  have been considerably -diminished  during the Glacial period, .so that the  present distribution cannot be taken  as indicative of their original extent.  These are the youngest rocks in the  district, for they are seen in the Tulameen river and also on One mile and  Summers creeks to rest on the rocks  of the coal series. On the. Tulameen  river the stream cuts through beds of  clay and sandstone overlaid by these  volcanics for a distance of at least tA\-o  and one-half miles. The schists of the  Roche river are overlaid to the north  and east by three volcanics, and they  also overlie the Copper Mountain  series on the north and west. They  consist of rhyolites and trachytes, an-  desites, basalt, tuffs and breccias. The  darker lavas are often amygdaloidal,  the vesicles being filled with chert,  chalcedony or zeolites. Some agates  and wood opal were found in the volcanic area east of Coldwater creek.  Some of the dikes cutting the Copper  Mountain rocks appear to be contemporaneous with these volcanic rocks,  and in somoAvay connected with them.  In the Roche Ri\-er district the mineralized area is confined to a bed of  soft talc, chloritic and bornbleudic  schists, lying about the junction of the  Roche Avith the Pasayton river. The  ore bodies are of tAvo classes; (1) Small  gold bearing fissure veins ; (2) Larger  bedded veins, copper bearing. The  first are. usually quart/, veins from  three inches to four feet in width, cutting across the strike of the schists,  and dipping at angles from 00c to DO3.  They carrv besides gold, bornite, tetrn-  hedrite, chalcopyrite and pyrite. Sylvan ite Avas also reported to occur, but  an assay of a selected sample of one of  the veins supposed to carry this mineral gave no trace of tellurium.  The second class contains  larger ore  bodies,  lying parallel to   the strike of  the    schists.      These  may   be   either!  quartz veins or mineralized bands in  J**-*  I n vestment  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on Avhich is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

The horse first mentioned has been  a common spectacle in Fairview and  vicinity for over a year, but is not a  case with which I have anything to do  as an officer of the " health of animals  branch" of the Department of Agriculture.  The other case I knoAV nothing of,  as I have not seen the horse and no  complaint has been made to me regarding it. This may or may not be a  case of infectious or contagious disease,  but of this 1 will take the earliest opportunity to satisfy myself and deal  with the case if it is one that comes  under my authority.
