[HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  OLIVER & GLADDEN  :():-  Civil & Mining Engineers  :o:-  |Jfcfe/\L   ESTATE  1 ���������] HEDLEY, B. C.    '  The Star was very careful in throwing out its hundred, dollar hlufl", to  duly attach a string to tlie same, and  yvhen the-bluff was*called, its childish  attempt to wriggle out of the hole has  made it the laughing-stock of the  district.  B. C������ Tlie Gazette's statement of the issue  was sis broad as it was possible to make  it, and left ii<V chance for a back-out  without discredit'/ Tli'e Gazette still  stands- by that issue, and lias put up  the money to bring the matter to a  test.    Will the Star dare cover it 'i  /The Star's latest wriggle is ���������to pretend that its paragraph yvas not a stab  at Hedley, hut at Fairview. The  Star's paragraph said " more than the  next highest office in the Similkameen."  Now Fairview is not in the Similkameen but in the Okanagan. ..To wriggle  out of this again the Star will doubtlessly claim that it meant the Similkameen Electoral District. If the Star  had wanted to convey that meaning  it yvould have used the words "elector-  til district," for nobody in this valley  uses the term '��������� the Similkameen" in  any other sense than to include only  the country drained by the Shnilka;  meen river from its mouth at Oroville  to its headwaters above Princeton.  In his anxiety to sneak out of the  consequences of his rash bluff, the  Star Editor is neither kind nor fair to  1. v  Fairview.   Let its examine.  The Star's whole position ( both real  and pretended) is on a false premise,  viz., that the amount of money orders  and postal notes paid at a point where  a government office is placed, has anything to do with the.importance or  prosperity of a place in.-.comparison  yvith   others   not  similarly, situated.  In   no   instance   can'   this   be   better  shoyvn  than  to  take  the Star's oyvn  examples and contrast the ty\ro places,  Princeton   and  Fairview,' at'various  periods during   the   past ten   years.  Both   yvere   government   offices,  and  both had paying mines 25 miles or so  distant; for Fairvieyv.had the Cariboo,  and other properties at Camp McKinney   boosting >its   money order payments, ..while  Princeton  has  had the  Nickel Plate at Hedley.    Of the tyvo.  Fail-view shows to the better advantage, foi Fairvieyv at times had a payroll of its oyvn and for tyvo years Fairvieyv lia������i lost the help of CampMcKin-  ney (noyv almost deserted)-'while for  the same  time  the Nickel Plate  has  been  keeping alive both  Hedley and  Princeton.    In spite of this the gross  revenue   of   Fairvieyv    is   $569.17   as  against -,$IH8.13  for   Princeton  and  $901.30 for Hedley.   (The Hedley postmaster infouns us thtit the revenue is  noyv over $100 pel, month )  If the Star had yyanted to give Fairvieyv a squat e deal, that is the column  it should h.-.u;e.contiasted, for tlie gross  revenue of a. post office is a fair indication of the importance of a place,  while' the amount of money orders  paid indicates nothing but the diligence  of the tax collector in raking'in the  taxes.- ' ' -       .  Cornered at every point, which way  yvill the Star turn noyv? Meanwhile  'there is .$100 up-to hack the Gazette's  statement that the Star's paragraph  " yvas a dishorn-st paragraph published  with intent to deceive the public."

Immediate Action-Resolution Passed.  It being learned-from  authoritative  source that .mother raihvay fight yvas  on at Ottawa in which the interests of  the toyvn of Hedley wore vitally effected, ,a public meeting yvas held on Monday night in Fraternity Hall to discuss  the   situation and devise ways   and  means to protect the toyvn from being  side-tracked by the only raihvay. that  reallv can be counted on to build,  The  languor yvhich seems of late to have  characterized C. P. R. forces yvorking  eastward from Spence's Bridge taken  together with apparently authentic reports in Coast papers that the connection in the Boundary and Coast route  is to be made with  the   main   line  at  Sicamous by means of the S. & O. and  branch from Midway to Penticton, instead of at Spence's Bridge via the Similkameen, is not reassuring to dwel-  lers in the Similkameen.   "When therefore it became known that the 0. P. R.  had induced the Minister of Railways  and Canals to withdraw   approval   of  the V. V. & E.   plans   at   Hedley   to  build on the North side   of   the  river,  the instinct of self  preservation   ever  potent to arouse a spirit of fight, made  the people disposed to resent this treatment, and hence the meeting.

Angus  Stewart yvas   elected chairman and A. Megraw secretary.  It wits decided that a resolution  should be passed to show both tlie  Minister* of Railways and Canals anel  tlie Raihvay Commission that the people of Hedley had only one opinion as  to the location of the line and that  yvas for the north side of the river.  The Daly Reduction Company yvas rd-  presented at the meeting by the Secretary of the Company, Mr. C. A Crawford, who .in the interests of the Company yvas strongly in favor of the  meeting taking action to protect the  interests of both" the town and the  Company.  It yvas moved   by 0.' A. .Crawford,  seconded by George Sproule   that  Whereas the whole of the toyvn of  Hedley as yvell as the industries upon  yvhich the toyvn subsists,' tire located  on the north side of the Similkameen  river and very great loss and inconvenience yvould result if the line of the  Vancouver Victoria and Eastern Rail-  vay yvere built on- the opposite side of  the river instead of coming through  the toyvn, and  Whereas future development of  mining properties is expected to bring  the main bulk of tonnage from properties* up Tyventy Mile Creek and on  Nickel Plate Mountain and the Camps  north and east, all of yvhich must find  their outlet at Hedlev.  It is therefore resolved that- the citizens of Hedley in mass meeting assembled request the Hon. minister of Rail-  yvays and Canals to approve the plans  of the Vancouver, Victoria, and Eastern Raihvay to build on the north side j  and grant such other facilities as may  be necessary to suourc that end. Carried unanimously.  xV committee consisting of A. Mes-*-  rayv, R. G. Shier and W. .1. llenilersini  yvere appointed to draft and circulate  a petition lo the.same end. to be for-  yvardad yvith the resolution to Ottayva  so as to obtain tlie expression of those  yvho yvere not at the meeting as   well.  Ceo. Abels and his wife, of Seattle,  arrived in toyvn on Saturday evening.  Mr. Abels is a first-class barber, and  basset up his chair in the rear of Hair-  sine's billiard hall until more suitable  premises are secured. Mr. and Mrs.  Abels have taken up their residence in  \V. Suter's cabin.  The masquer, de ball yvith which the  Maple Leaf Dan-nig Club of Hedley  brought to an 'en 1 the festivities of  the yvinter seas t, yvas made an event  worthy of the orcai-i-m.  About fit*<y couples, yvere present,  and during the fore part of the evening  the floor yv., , reserve .f >r maskers.  i The hah yvas tastefully decorated.for  the. occasion and the music supplied  by Mis. SV. II. Smith and W. Hill Avas  in every respect satisfactory to the  dancers.  ' The maskers, for t'.e most part, took  particular pains with   their costumes  and as a result some  excellent character representations were seen.   Only  in one or tyvo instances yvas a tendency  to,undue coarseness displayed in costume   or   roughness   in    deportment.  There yvere but few instances of dui>li-  cation, the only  ones  being' "Night"  by Mrs. Bowerman  and Miss Mattie  Stott,   "Queen of  Hearts"  by Misses  Olson and Marion Smith, and "Hedley  Gazette"  by Mrs. Dcardorff and Miss  Josie Nelson,  both  of whom did the  Gazette credit and to whom the Gazette bows acknowledgements for the  compliment paid.     There were some  instances in which the character to be  represented  yvas admirably costumed  but   indifferently   acted,   and   others  yvhere tho costuming and acting were  alike good.    Among the latter might  be . mentioned   the   " Squaws ">,    the  "Blind Beggar", and the "unfortunate  parent of the twins."   The "Gold Dust  Twins"   costumed their part particularly yvell but should not have separated  for   the   grand  march and lost  other "opportunities' of /'currying out  the part taken.   Many of the important   costumes,  'while elaborate  and  showv, yvere more or less nondescript.  Folloyying  is a  list of the maskers  and the parts taken :  E. Nelson, U.S. Soldier.   .  Mrs. E.

The Maple Leaf Club acknowledges  with thanks the efforts of the ladies in  contributing'to -the excellent lunch  served, also the door-keeper for faithful service rendered.  The Klootchmen's basket of cultus  iktas for the sick papoose, and the  heroic, stolidity with yvhich they squatted out the performance made them  easy winners. It yvas surely a severe  trial to keep quiet so long.  Lord Chesterfield, courtly and de-  bonaire, was a commanding figure.  Miss Stott's costume "Night" was  much admired.  ' The Gold  Dust Twins  are   not as  black ������ts they were painted.  The "Tyvo Little Girls in Blue" yvere  mashers; or at all events that is what  any one would think whose toes yvere  trodden on by the larger of the tyvo.  Mary Queen of Scots and Gypsy  Girl were in the running but. didn't  quite manage to win out.  BOARD OF TRADE.  Meeting Held To  Deal  With   Railway  ,    Matter.  At the close of the public meeting  on Mondav night the member*-- of the  Board of Trade yvere asked to remain,  for a meeting of the Board.  Mr. J. D. Brass, vice-president, occupied the chair.  The only business before the meeting  yvas the railway question, and the fol- *  lowing resolution was passed.  1  Moved by F. H.  French, seconded  by Angus Stewart, that  Whereas it litis been learned, that  there is a possibility that the V. V.&E.  Railway Co. may be refused the right  ���������to-locate their line on the North side  of the Siniilkantcen River, on yvhich  the toyvn of Hedley is situated ;  And whereas, serious loss yvould result to the toyvn by reason of expense  in bridging a difficult stream like the  Similkameen River, and in maintenance of said bridges should the road  be built on the south side, yvhich is  fully a mile distant:  And yvhereas not only the works of  the Daly Reduction Co. and the Nickel  Plate Mine, but of most of the other  important mining properties, which  must furnish the main voltim ��������� of business for a raihvay, are situated on the  north-side of the river, and consequently are to be most benefitted by  allowing the raihvay to pass through  the toyvn of Hedlev :  And yvhereas the sum of .$5000 has  been appropriated by the Provincial  Government to build a wagon road up  Tyventy Mile Creek, yvhich will bring  the ores of the .various camps in the  basin of Tyventy Mile and on Nickel  Plate Mountain to Hedley for shipment .*  Therefore, be it resolved that this  meeting request the Hon. Minister of  Raihvays and Canals to approve the  plans of the.. V. V. ������fc K. Raihvay to  build their line on the north side of  the river. ���������Carried.  METEOROLOGICAL.

Fulton,    Provincial    Secretary,  has taken over the duties.  NOTICE.  It is rather  curious  to .note  how the vocabulary of a people  is subject, like their clothes,  to  change with the changing fashions.     But the fads and fancies  of the tailor in perpetrating certain conceits and whims in dress  are as nothing with the phrase-  maker.    A fashionable word at  present, in the. vocabulary of the |  Onposih'on  at   Victoria-  is    the!  word "alienate.'"    The  Govern-!  ment have been guilty at every'  turn., of "alienating   the  public  domain." by selling said domain  at the market price of one  dollar an acre.     It is a convenient  word to hedge on.    To the public it is intended to  convey the  idea of a give away, donation or  potlatcli,  and   the smaller   fry  yvho thus interpret, are expected to peddle out that interpretation   to  sundry   electors who  can be stuffed.     There was the  Kaien Island alienation, for instance, by which   7500 acres of  third-class land were  alienated  for  $10,000.,  and  hundreds   of  people in B. C. to-day are being  made to believe  that, not  only  has 10000 acres of Kaien Island  land gone to the how-wows, but  that a modern Kitty O'Shea has  been bonussed by the  Government to the tune of some$40,000.  Did it never occur to these  alienation people that if they had  not alienated so  many million  needle.-is dollars of the people's  money to the G. T.

The Gazette was treated,recently to  much attention in the Star from Ceo.  E. Winkler, which revealed very plainly that George, like the editor of the  Star, yvas angry, and angry men never  argue coherently.  Judging from the heading it-yvould  appear that tlie crime sought to be  proven against the editor of this paper  yvas that of inconsistency, but after  the most' careful scrutiny for some  evidence to sustain the charge, no,-  thing could be discovered except the  fact that the Gazette had, in February  1905. published for Mr. Winkler, anonymously," an amusing but rather irri-  the mining situation on Copper and  Kennedy mountains, and is confident  that the coining season yvill see several  properties taken hold of and development yvork done to prove to the public  what every one believes, that there is  in that portion of the district a most  promising mineral section.  S. Grigor, Liberal organizer, yvas in  toyvn this week rounding up the faithful, yvhich indicates that an election is  expected. It yvas formerly urged as  an argument against protracted courtships and long engagements that they  yvould be tired out scoring before the  race began, and the same might be  applied ti> premature, organization, for  it must, lie wearing on the constitution  to sustain fur very long the fine frenzy  into which some people work themselves for an election campaign-.  tilting wipe at A. 13. Howse, and in  October 1905 and February I90G, after  consigning all other anonymous correspondence to the waste paper basket,  had declaimed against the practice of  publishing such correspondence.  ���������Mr. Winkler, without saying it, conveys the idea that the Gazette had  fixed up. his Hpyvse screed yvith scare  headlines. The reason that he did not  say so openly is that he kneyv that-tho  article, appeared in the Gazette word  for word as he wrote it," headlines  and all.  He intimates that the Gazette in  giving him ayv:ay, yvas guilty of a,  breach of professional honor.    On the  contrary, there is no honor in conceal--  ���������* ��������� .i  ing the identity of anonymous  backbiters,   and   when   they   get   cheeky j  enough to attempt to. play snua-t on  the editor, it is both meritorious and  a pleasure to pull .away the mask.  Mr. Winkler thinks that the Gazette's object in thus exposing him yvas  to close the columns of the Star  against him. No such thing. If, however, he������ really wants to knoyv the  reason, the Gazette has no objections  in telling him. The reason was tyvo-  fdld; first, to teach him the folly of  being too gay, and second, to. lay a  trap for the Star, yvhich it thick-head-  edly tumbled into by at once espousing  the cause of the one yvhose so-called  "vile slanders" caused it to froth at  the mouth a year ago. Well, all the  Star's froth on that occasion, the  Gazette has now the pleasure of passing on to Mr. Winkler, yvho is shown  conclusively by his oyvn admission to  have earned it. If Mr. Winkler, litis  still any doubt that the Star's abuse on  that occasion belongs to him, how  would it do for us to reproduce his  letter of March 21th, 1905, with further  endearments fur Mr. Hoyvsc?  Lastly, Mr. Winkler's efforts at  fishing for compliments are most  naive. He says the Gazette entertains  for him "a half envious admiration";  it "sees  his  fine. Italian hand"; it re-  X  H  *-  X  X  X  X  *;  X  I  X  X  K  Bf  X  X  X  X  X  X  x-  X  X  X  X  X  X  *i<  X  %  K  X  X  X  X  ���������V  HOTEL  HEDLEY  Under   New   Management  THE MUST J?KOVI������ED  IX KITCHEN AND BAT?

WHEN.   ANSWERING   ADVERTISERS,    MENTION   THE   GAZETTE THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, MARCH 22, 1900.  PROVINCIAL  LEGISLATURE  The  Closing   Scenes   Of An  Eventful Session.  OPPOSITION IN VOTING MOOD  PROPERTY IN HEDLEY  Is  A  Good,  Safe   Investment  And Votes Were The Order Of The Day  Motion Of Want Of Confidence Fails  Many Bills Passed���������Prorogation Is  Reached.  Parker Williams, Newcastle, moved  a resolution that the Government  should take into consideration the advisability of securing pensions to the  aged or permanently disabled : but it  . was ruled out of order by the Speaker  tus affecting public revenue and being  therefore a matter which could only  be, brought in as a Government measure. '  The resolution of Hawthomthyvaile,  Nanainio, regarding the condition of  various slaughter-houses in the province, was passed.  The Act to amend the Public Schools  Act passed its third reading, and the  report on the Act to amend the Provincial Elections Act yvas adopted.  The Provincial Stock Bleeders' Association bill passed through committee and was reported complete without amendments, and Carter-Cotton's  Liquor License Act, the Victoria Terminal Railway'and Ferry Act, and the  Life-boat and Life-saving Association  Act, passed through'committee and  yvere reported complete yvith amendments.  The Midway .& Vernon bill passed  its third reading."  '' In committee on the West Kootenay  ' Power and Light Go. Act, Dr. Young's  amendment in favor of the 'Cascade  people was defeated, and progress yvas  reported.  The ball was opened by Mr. J. A.  Macdonald, Rossland, leader of the  opposition, who attempted to pass a  vote of want of confidence couched in  the folloyving terms :  "This House declares that the Order-  in-Cotincil of the 3rd of May, 1904,  dealing Avith 10,000 acres of land on  Kaien Island yvas not passed in the  public interest."  Mr. Macdonald supported this interesting suggestion in a speech yvhich  need not Vie set doyvn here. He received a dressing-doyyn from the Premier, and, as none of the rest of  the opposition appeared to be  yvilling to get doyvn to their leader's  level by supoorting his motion .verbally, it yvas put by the Speaker and ;  defeated by a vote of 20 to 12. j  The folloyving bills passed their third j  reading :  "An Act to provide for the Establishment of a Provincial Stock-Breeders' Association, and for the Introduction, Exhibition, Improvement, Pur-;  chase and Sale of Pure .Bred Live  Stock." i  "An  Act  to amend  the.   ���������Victoria-  Terminal Raihvay & Ferry Act, 1001." !  **An Act to consolidate and amend |  the 'Municipal Clauses Act.' and am- i  ending Act." '  "An Act to amend the 'Vancouver;  Incorporation Act, 1000." j  " An Act to amend the "Pacific Coast j  Pin1 Insurance Company's Act,  1890." j  " An Act to amend the '".Municipal I  Elections Act."  In ausyver to a question from .John  Oliver, Delta, tht! Premier stated that  it yvas not the intention of the Government to introduce any legislation yvith  respect to the sale ol; patent medicine  this session, as the matter yvould prob-  .ably come before the Dominion House.  In tlie meantime all the information  bearing on the matter yvould be carefully collected.  A telegram yvas read   by   the   leader  of the Opposition from the matron  of  the Children"s Aid Home  at Vancouver,   asking    for   assistance,  as   their  building had just   been   destroyed   by j  iirc.    Mr.      Macdonald   asked   if   the |  Government yvas going to do anything j  in the matter.    The Picmier informed !  him that the Government had already j  considered the matter and had decided j  lo grant $':,000  toyvards   the  required j  aid (Applause.) j  The House then   adjourned  I'oi-  ten |  minutes on motion of the  Premier,   to  av.'a.it the arrival of   the   Lieutenant-  Governor, yvho yvas on his yvay to  for  mally prorogue   the   House.  Mis Honour arrived al  10   p:m:   pre-!  i  ei.sely, and yvas received yvith the usit- j  ai respectful formalities. The lengthy  list of measures���������no less than eighty-  eight in number���������yvas presented to him  and received his assent.  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on yvhich is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects. It is the mining and business  centre of the .''',.

L. W. SHATFORD,  Secretary and Manager,  The Speaker then presented Bill S9,  being An Act for Granting certain  sums of money for the Public Service  of the Province of British Columbia."  Sir Henri Joly then made the folloyving short speech:���������  ���������'In relieving you from further attendance on yotir legislative duties, it  affores ine pleasure to express my appreciation of the earnestness and .care  yvhich you have displayed in dealing  yvith the many important subjects that  have occupied your attention.  "The present satisfactory state of  the provincial finances and the prosperous condition of the leading industries of the country are proofs that the  measures passed by you at previous  sessions of the legislature have aehiev  ed the desired results.  "[ thank you for the supplies granted for the administration of the province, and I am glad to sec the liberal j  provision   made   for expenditures on |  public works.
