HEDLEY,  B. C.  Grand Union  Hotel .  HEDLEY, B. C.  HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  A petition has been hawked about  during the past few days, and thought?  lessly signed by some who would have  done well to have scrutinized it more  carefully before affixing their signatures.   When the true inwardness of  the thing is seen, it reveals a piece of  knavery that is most unique in its daring as well as the low cunning it displays.   Those   who   signed    were no  doubt tricked into signing with  the  belief that  they   were   assisting   the  ranchers  in   the  Burr settlement to  get assistance for the improvement of  a road which was constructed through  the private enterprise of the settlers  with a little assistance from the government;   but   the    sly   mortal   who  drew up the petition had placed in it  these two clauses:  "And whereas at the present time  there are only about eight settlers  without wagon road communication,  aud if this road was built for about  twenty miles to the North of Similkameen City, it would open up a large  mining and agricultural country,  which would be immediately settled  up and become prosperous.  "And whereas from the end of this  road it would not cost more than  $5,000 to connect with the present  Nickel Plate-Penticton wagon road  passing through the Golden Zone  group of mineral claims, thereby opening up ajarge tract of valuable arable  and mineral country. One small bridge  would be required which would not  cost more than $200 to cross the west  fork of Twenty Mile.  The settlers in the Burr settlement  deserve all the assistance that can be  procured for them, and townspeople  generally will be disposed to aid, but  they will not relish the idea of being  made cats-paws of to pull out of the  fire the chestnuts of impecunious adventurers. It is unnecessary to point  out the import of the scheme which  was in view. The clauses above quoted explain themselves. Meanwhile  the settlers on the mountain should  nob be made to suffer for the sins of  those who would make dupes of them,  and a properly worded petition should  he circulated in their behalf to attain  the   object,   sought.  The debate on the address which began under favorable conditions  with  more  than  usually   bright  and   able  speeches from the mover and seconder  Mr.  Thomson,  of Victoria,   and Dr.  McGuire, of Vancouver, was continued  in a long-winded dissertation by John  Oliver who was temporary leader iu  the absence of Mr. Macdonald.   Mr.  Oliver took some three hours to reply,  and his manner was meek  and conciliatory and at variance  with his usual  pugnacity.    He was followed by the  Premier,  who effectively demolished  his opponent's position, and as the opposition did not throw any,of their,  new timber into the breach, the debate  was closed with a rambling effort from  Parker Williams,  Socialist.     He condemned the employment of Pinkerton  detectives on the C.P.R. train robbery;  attacked the proposal of utilizing  the  Salvation Army as   an   immigration  agency. >���������  '  When the address was voted on, the  Socialists voted nay.  The following Bills were introduced  and read a first time :  By Mr. Hawthornthwaite���������Bill (No.  12) intituled "An Act to amend the  ���������Workmen's Compensation Act, 1902'."  By Mr. Oliver���������Bill (No. 11) intituled "An Act respecting Ditches and  Water-courses."  Referred   to   the   Municipal   Committee.  Hon. Mr. Tatlow, in moving the second leading of the Assessment Act,  said it was hardly necessary to go into  details as to the state of the finances  of the country prior to 1903. This had  all been threshed out in the recent  campaign, and he would not refer to it  now, only that the member for Delta,  in the debate on the address, had said  there was no necessity for the Assessment Act of 1903. Iu increasing the  taxes an endeavor was made to place  the taxation on the richer classes of  the community who were best able to  bear it. In the Act before the House  they had kept the same object in view,  reducing the taxes on those least able  to bear it, and placing it on those who  could.  The first items dealt with in the bill I south of Copper mountain, but the ore.  ROCHE  river.  Only two claims have been Crown-  granted and surveyed, and the amount  of development work done on all of  them is not sufficient to prove the ore  bodies, or test their permanence. The  surveyed claims are the Pasayton and  the Sailor Jack. On both these are  small fissures;.. on the Pasayton a fissure four inches wide, from which the  samples were taken to test for tellur-  ides ; and on the Sailor Jack a fissure  two feet wide cutting across a hornblende schist.  The greatest amount of work has  been done on the Red Star and Anaconda claims.   On these there is a belt  of soft talc and  chloritic schist about  400 feet wide/ striking 125������ dipping  vertically, and lying between the mica  schists.   It appears to be traversed by  a fault plane,   along which  bunches  and lenses of white feldspar and quartz  have been found, and which were first  worked for 'their gold content!     On  development the vein ran into the talc  schist, which proved to be highly mineralized with copper carbonates and  cuprite, and which was farther on replaced  by   bornite and ehalcopyrite.  Along with these were pyrite and ar-  senopyrite,  siderite and some  blende.  A shaft has been Sunk in the tunnel to  a depth of sixty feet,  but this had to  be abandoned on account of the gases.  Some native copper occurs as sheets  in little slips and fault planes in the  schist.  Several other claims have been staked in this district, and though there  are some indications of high grade ore  occurring, the only work done on  them has been just sufficient to enable  the Copper Mountain owners to hold  their claim.  Copper Mountain was reported on  by Mr. W. F. Robertson, the Provincial Mineralogist, in August, 1901, and  his report appears in the Annual Report of the Minister of Mines for British Columbia of that year. Since then  development work has been extended  farther to the eastward, but little more  has been done hi the neighborhood of  the river. In speaking of Copper  Mountain camp and Copper Mountain  ore bodies, it will be distinctly understood that Kennedy mountain will be  included as well, for no distinction can  be drawn between the two.  The camp includes about 130 Crown-  granted mineral claims, covering an  area five miles long from east to west,  and about four miles from north to  south.   Combination camp lies to the  Track-laying Now in Progress North of  Nighthawk ��������� Abundance   of  Material on Hand.  Authentic reports are to hand to the  effect that the steel reached Night-  hawk over a week ago, and that they  have been coming right along ever  since. There is said to be abundance  of: material iir^stoei^tiesandbridge  timbers. Last fall a sufficient quantity  of Canadian steel to lay all the way to  Princeton arrived-''at Mihvay and has  been held there, ever since.  The distance from Nighthawk to  Keremeos is about 25 miles, so that  the. track-layer by this time must be  nearing the boundary line ,to again  enter British Columbia on the Similkameen. The track ever since crossing  the Similkameen river near Oroville is  on the right bank or west side of the  river, aud will remain on that side until the Armstrong crossing is reached,  when it crosses over to the east side  upon which the wagon road runs down  the valley between Keremeos and the  Boundary. There is, however, a ferry  at Nighthawk which will permit driving between Keremeos and Nighthawk  without the. climb over Richter's pass,  whicb always made the drive to Oro- ;  ville a difficult one.  Just when construction work north *  of Keremeos is to be resumedis something that it is difficult to get definite  information upon.   For fully eighteen  months past this event has for the  most part been just three ; weeks distant.     Later,  it was stated that no  more would be done until the steel  reached Molson.     Next it was postponed until the steel reached Oroville,  and the next crumb of comfort handed  out was that as soon as the steel got  far enough up the valley to do away  with the pull over Richter's pass, the  outfits would move  north   to  begin  work.   Now, however, it is a disputed  point whether a  move rniiy be expected before the steel reaches Keremeos.  The difficulty with the Derartment  of Railways in connection with the  route at brushy bottom was settled at  the meeting held in Ottawa the first  week in March, and there can be no  longer any excuse for delay on that  score unless the Department hatch up  a new difficulty.  It has certainly been a.wait that has  proven very trying on the patience.  A   SAFE   WINTER   ROAD.  How  A. MEGRAW  NOTARY   PUBLIC  Conveyancer,   Real Kstate.

ARRESTED FOR MURDER  Office  at  HEDLEY,  B. C.  That is the Position in which Jack Nichol  Finds Himself at Penticton.  OLIVER k GLADDEN  -:o:  Civil & Mining Engineers  ���������:0:  7VUINE������ and  REAL,   EST/VTE  HEDLEY. B.C.  The stage-driver on Tuesday night  brought in word that Jack Nichol had  been arrested   at  Penticton   for   the  murder of the jeweller,  Zimmerman,  in January last.     For weeks  the impression had been gaining ground  in  Penticton that home talent had done  the deed and the murderer was still in  their midst.   No details are to hand as  to   evidence   which will be   produced,  but gossip points to a few things that  may have a. more or less  important  bearing on the  case.     The deed was  most foul and it is hoped it may soon  be. brought home to the guilty party.  The theory of  the   murder   is  that  theft only was the intention while the  old man was gone for his mail, and his  speedy return put the thief up against  the alternative of being punished   or  committing murder as his one hope of  getting out of the mess.  before them were the decrease of the  personal property tax,  and the real  property tax.     All this showed the  sincerity of the Government when  in  introducing the Act,   they promised  that as soon as the financial position  of the   Province was sufficiently restored they would commence to reduce  the taxation.     In the Assessment Act.  of 1905 they had made a  beginning by  reducing the personal property tax,  and the real property tax to the extent  of $78,000 altogether.      To-day they  were asking the House to further reduce these items of taxation, real property by about 40 per cent, and personal   property   from   two-thirds    to  three-fifths of 1 percent., which would  mean a reduction of about $125,000 for  this year,   which,  added to the reduction  in  1005,  reduced  taxation some  $203,000 per annum altogether.      In  making that statement it would be  seen that the Government had carried  out their  promise that at the very  first opportunity they would reduce  taxation again.  He thought that the time had come  to raise more revenue from the raw  material of the province without calling on the tax-payers.  In the reduction of taxation on real  and personal property, the bill provided that where there was taxation  on both personal property and income  the tax should stand on one alone. If  the tax-payer had personal property  apart from his income tax the personal property tax would prevail.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite bore testimony to the prosperity of the country  and that that when the province was  so prosperous the Government would  cut out the poll tax.  bodies are much the same in character.  The country rock is a batholithic intrusion of igneous rock of very variable composition, which has been intruded into and has almost entirely  digested the older overlying sediments  ���������limestones, argillites and quartzites  ���������so that these only now appear as  inclusions or remnants in the igneous  rock.    To the north  and west it is  overlaid   by   recent   volcanic   rocks.  Along the southern and eastern border  of the mineralized area of the igneous  rock is a diorite, which sometimes has  a gneissic structure,  and  which frequently holds segregations of the dark  minerals.   To the north this rock becomes more ticid, and is cut by narrow  veins   of pink   feldspar  and  quartz.  Both the sediments and the igneous  rock are intimately mixed with,  and  cut by later dikes of different ages,  whose sequence cannot yet be perfectly worked out.     These dikes have a  general north and south trend and are  quartz   porphyry,  rhyolite,  andesite,  felsite and diabase,  of which the first  mentioned are apparently  the   most  recent.   The whole series,  except the  later dikes,  is  traversed by a set of  fracture and fault planes running in  an almost east and west direction.  Two classes of ore bodies have been  made out���������(1) those occurring at or  near the contact of the sediments with  an igneous rock ; and (2) those occurring in the zones of fracture. Both  are of a very indefinite character without well defined boundaries. Examples of the first class are found at the  southern end of Copper mountain, and  on the west side of the Similkameen  the  S. F..& M.   and V. V. & E.  Compare   With   Others   for  Storm Blockades.  In referring to the opening of the  Hill road to Oroville both for passenger and freight traffic, the Spokesman-  Review points out the fact that trains  on this one road had been much less  subject to trouble from storms and  other agencies than any of the others.  It does not traverse territory in whicb  there is very heavy snowfall, and  neither is it a country that is much  subject to snow or mud slides. The  only great difficulty concerning it is  that it builds so very slowly.  The Spokesman-Review says :   Oroville is situated on the Okanagan river  in the extreme  northern  part of the  state near the Canadian line, and has  heretofore been without railroad communication.    On Monday freight service to Oroville was also established.  The Spokane Falls ������fc Northern bears  the distinction of being  the only one  of the  steam roads  entering the city  which has not  been tied up more or  less  by   storms  and   severe   weather  during the past winter.    Trains on the  road have moved all winter with very  few delays,  and at no time during the  winter has there been a break of any  importance in the schedule.  Continued on Page Four.

THE ASSESSMENT ACT  Probably one of the most important  questions  which   the   legislature -will  deal with during the present session,  is the rearrangement' of taxation as  provided for   in the   assessment   act.  The Gazette  has   not   vet obtained a  copy of the bill to amend the act. and  consequently is not  in   a. position  to  either commend or criticize legislation  now before the  House' on   that question, but there  were  certain   features  of  the   present  law   that  required   a-  nu-ndinent and these will, in all probability, be dealt with. The narrow majority which the government had during the last parliament is  believed   to  have been in a measure responsible for  some of the more  unsatisfactory  features of the old act, which was intended almost wholly to operate as  a  revenue producer as well as  an  equalizer  of the burden of taxation.    As a revenue producer it certainly did its work'  and it also placed the burden of  taxation upon the shoulders of those  best  able to heai* it, but while the principle  was right in the main, the details were  in many cases faulty. These are points  that the. Gazette discussed two years  ago,  and   now   that the   question   is  again before the  legislature,   it   is  in  order to re.produe what was then said.  Extracts from the  article  are as follows :  "While the Assessment Act   of last  session was on the whole lo be considered a. step  in   tho   right direction   in  that it showed some effort to  equalize  the taxation on various industries and  has proven ils worth in the part   that  it played in contributing towards  the  firsl'surplus, no one ever claimed   that  it   was   in   itself   a   perfect measure.  *    i;    The ostensible  object  in   passing the act was to produce more revenue to the province,    and   yet   there  are instances in which levenue is wantonly thrown away.     Take for example the exemption from taxation  of a  pre-emption for  two  years from   the  date of -v."-'!-;.!.    There was no need for  this   exemption   and   no    pre-emptor  ���������would have expected it if it had  not  been thrust upon him.    This provision  too is capable  of being abused.    The  writer has in mind at the present ino  inent one instance in which a pre-emption was  taken   up  in 1806, and   well  improved,  although   the   pre-emptor  never took out  his  certificate   of improvements nor   made any   payment  thereon.    Since  the  new Assessment  Act came in force tie sold his right in  in strong paper or enclosed in cotton  bag, and should contain not less than  one ounce of grass seeds of all kinds or  white or alsike clovers, two ounces of  red. clover, alfalfa or other seeds of  like size, and three ounces or a small  handful of wheat, oats or barley or  other large seeds. The rate of postage  is one "cent per. ounce-and should be  prepaid. All testing is done free of  charge.  Address: Dominion Department  of. Agriculture, Seed _ Laboratory^  Calgary.    .  the Act. Look at the inequality.  Take the case of two pre emptors who  in 1898 took up their holdings side by  side. One carried out the letter and"  spirit of his contract with the government and in five years had done improvements on his land at the rate of  $2.50 per acre and paid the purchase  price of.$1.00 per acre and in 1903 obtained the crown grant. The other  did no improvements; paid nothing  on his land except the $3.00 taxes each  year to hold it down. Tn 190-1 he is rewarded for the course he has pursued  by having his taxes reduced to 00 cts.  per year, and his thrifty neighbor  gets no exemption; but on   the other  hand has his taxes raised because-of ing temperature, etc., for the week  the increased value he has given to ��������� ending Mar. 10th  his lands. Thu one is punished for Vicing .progressive, the other rewarded  for being a- drone. Such anomalies  make one long for Henry George's  single tax. And if these clauses were  forced into the new assessment act by  the socialists, as it has been charged  they were, then the industrious progressive tax-payer of British Columbia  will not long for a socialist government in this province."

When a railway enters into an agreement to haul  a man from Montreal to Vancouver  and back for so much money the buyer of the ticket should have the right  to send back anyone else whom' he  may w\-ih to send, for it is not going  to cost the railway any more, to haul  one person than another.  10-3  JOHN M.

It is expected that Foster's weather  forecast for April will be at hand on  time for next issue. The. March forecast, in specifying the 2Sth as the terminal date of severe weather, would  encourage the belief that better behavior might be expected after that.  In the issue, of March Kith 1005, the  Gazette said: "The flight of several  noisy flocks of wild geese on Monday  night (13th March) added another to ]  the already long list of- spring signs.

Tne story  "Cimid Pioneering in the  Similkameen."    by J.    P.  McConnel,  which  appeared   in   the    Vancouver  Province,   furnished   merriment    for  sundry readers last   week.    The tale  had   all   the   delicious   improbability  of   Ralph   Connor's   yarns   oi* Ralph  Trotter's Rock Creek sermons  as described by that gentleman for the delectation of. the  fish-caters at  tea-meetings    away    back;   east.    Those who  were disposed to take the story seriously as an effort on the part of  the author to establish for himself a reputation in literature were   inclined  to  be  critical, but those  who read  between  the lines and saw  in  it only  a good-  natured   burlesque   011   some   of the  Ralph Connor stories took it as a very  good joke.    How   government agent  Hugh Hunter regarded the  treatment  which the writer of the story gave  to  his dress suit will probably never  be  known until the author of "Cupid Pioneering in the Similkameen" makes'another excursion into these wilds.    Mr.  Hunter keeps  a  shillaleh  in  reserve,  and when that occasion conies around  it will be pretty safe to count on  that  any moths that there may be   in  the  wearing  apparel   of   the   author   of  " Cupid Pioneering   in   the   Similkameen" will be banished therefrom by  the government agent as effectively as  St. Patrick   chased the snakes out of  Ireland.

THE UPPER SIMILKAMEEN.  Continued from Pasco One  ���������   river.      In  this  class  ore bodies are  frequently found at the contact of the  diorite with a limestone,   which may  be very  much altered.    The ore  here  generally occurs as infiltrations in the  ,   small fracture planes with  which the  rock  is  traversed.     The  fissures cut  both  the  igneous as well as the sedimentary  rocks,  and the metallic sulphides are found in both,  but only in  the neighborhood of the contact.    The  fissures'have been filled with secondary  calcite which acts as the gangue of the  sulphides.    Rhyolite and  quartz  porphyry dikes cut both kinds of rock, and  have  apparently been  injected after  the fracturing and Assuring had ceased,  for they are not  themselves affected  by any such dynamic action.    The intruded rock alone has been  fissured to  allow of the flow of mineralized  solutions.   These dikes are not in  themselves mineralized,  and do not appear  to have had" anything to do with the  formation  of the  ore  bodies.    In this  Jennie Silknian   claim a highly mineralized diabase dikes   which cuts an altered sedimentary rock  along with a  quartz porphyry,  seems  to be responsible for the formation of tins ore. The  minerals  occurring in   this  class are  ���������   chalcopyrite,  pyrite,   bornito and calcite with a. little  magnetite.    Bornite  is confined  to the southern portion of  the   camp.     The   Sunset,   Helen   H.  Gardner, Jennie Silknian and Copper  Farm claims are examples of this.  The second class of ore bodies occurs  iu the centre of Copper mountain and  eastward across Wolf creek.    In  this  case the ore occupies a zone of fracturing, which strikes about N. 75������ E.   It ���������  often happens that the country  rock  has been brecciated and the fragments  cemented together by calcite,  or it is  traversed by a network of small calcite  veins with a N. 75������ E. trend.     These  fissures are most abundant about the  middle of  the mineralized area,  and  die out to the north and south.    They  sometimes attain a width of two feet,  but are more often  only an inch or  two.   They cut all tho rocks except  some of the later dikes.     These dikes  strike at right angles to the course of  fissures, cutting off the ore bodies, and  they do not seem to have been affected  by any strains or stresses, except those  which are  consequent on the coaling  of an igneous body.   Pyrite, chalcopyrite, mispickel and magnetite, occur in  the calcite veins.     Magnetite  sometimes replaces the calcite altogether in  the veins and forms the gangue for  the  other   minerals.      The  Triangle  Fraction,  Red Eagle,  Ada B. Frisco  and other claims   running  east and  west across the  middle  of the camp  are examples of this class.     In the  northern part of the district the little  fissures are filled with feldspar, quartz  or magnetite, to the entire  exclusion  of calcite.

HEDLEY, B. C.  Besides being concentrated in the  zones of fracture,' the copper and iron  sulphides appear often to be original  constituents of the country rock, for  they appear as idiomorphic crystals  disseminated through it without any  connection with each other; and until  a great deal more work is done on the  claims it will he difficult to give a correct history of the formation of the  ore bodies. At present not many  claims have been explored to a depth  lower than the limit of surface oxidation, but it may be possible to throw  more light on the origin of the ore  bodies, when the numerous samples  obtained have been thoroughly examined under the microscope.  Owing to the  nature of the occurrence of the ore on  Copper  mountain  it is a difficult, matter to make estimates of the average values that the  rock  would give  on  assay.    The ore  bodies have no definite  boundaries, in  fact the whole mountain   is more or  less  mineralized,   with   concentration  taking place along certain   lines,   and  what is classed as  ore  to-day miiv be  too low grade to give a profit to-morrow, depending altogether on the price  of copper and the cost of mining.   The  boundaries   then will be merely commercial ones.    Mr. W.  F.  Robertson  made assays of samples from many of  the different claims in  1901,  and  the  results he obtained were from li to 3  per cent, in copper of average samples  with selected samples going up to 8  per cent.      Most of  them   carried a  small amount in gold.    It will be seen  by this that these ore bodies are very-  low grade, but this is compensated for  by their great size,  and the ease  with  which they can be worked.  In the country lying between One-  mile jiiid Fivemile creeks, and on the  slope of Fivemile creek, several claims  have been located, but only the western portion of this area came within  the area, examined.   The United Em  pire group, consisting of nine claims,  is on Allison mountain, and occurs in  the   same  series   of   metamorphosed  sediments as on Kennedy mountain.  The whole hill is heavily covered with  wash aud the rock wherever exposed  is decomposed to a much greater extent than in  any other part of the  couutry, due perhaps to a covering of  volcanic flows during the glacial period,  phich prevented the. decomposed  rock from being removed by the scouring action of the glacier.   At the base,  of the hill is a thick deposit of clay  and detrius washed down  from, the  hill; it is heavily charged with copper  carbonate  which has probably betjn  derived   from the leaching out of a  quartz vein higher up the hill carrying  the sulphides of copper.   Evidence in  support ot this  is   obtained  from a  shaft forty feet deep sunk about half  way up the hill,   at the   bottom of  which blocks of quartz carrying chalcopyrite occur in the decomposed rock.  It is probable that there is a vein of  quartz   carrying copper sulphides at  this place,  but not enough work has  been done to  demonstrate the size of  the vein or its strike.   Surface indications, however,  point to its haying an  east and west strike across the. strike  of   the    fracture,   planes   on   Copper  mountain.  Continued Next Week.  County Court of Yale.
