Mill Still Going-Repairs Being Made-  Compressor Installation Progressing���������Mine Development  Being Pushed  An unusual scene in, the Legislature  and one which must have been gratifying to the Premier was the cheers  from his supporters which greeted the  .Premier's presentation of the', bills  providing for the construction of the  Canadian Northern and Kettle River  railways."   ' ',' ' ' , -'  Midnight sessions have been in  vogue for the past fortnight, a feature  that invariably denotes the near approach of prorogation.  A large number of Hills, including  the Bill to incorporate; the city of  Prince Rupert, passed second reading.  Acts "to" incorporate the Canadian  Northern Pacific Railway Company  and to' amend .the, Midway & Vernon  Railway Act." these being supplementary to the railway bills of the previous day, also passed second reading,  as did also.a bill* to repeal the Commercial Travellers Licence Act. There  was no discussion on any of these. \ ,  Legislation to further thcSalvation  Army's 'Immigration- -schemes' Avas  bitterly opposed by the Socialist'members. ���������   ���������������������������'���������.,-: .  Attorney-general Bowserintrq'duced  a bill to facilitate procuring juries for  County Court trials,, aud also a bill to"  provide for electrical inspection..  Hon. Mr. McBride moved the second  reading of a bill to amend the Midway  & Vernon Railway Act.   He said it  .was a very short bill dealing with the  bonus of $5,000 a mile to the company  for* the construction of the Midway  & Vernon Railway.   Whether it was  still, within their reach he could not  say, but it Avas certain that the Kettle  Valley Railway Company had secured  control of the charter of the Midway  & Vernon,. and ;in order  that there-  hiight.be no doubt that the.subsidy to  the Midway & Vernon no longer existed the Bill Avas brought in to repeal it.  The Bill passed second reading.  The debate on the railway bill was  participated in by.' Messrs'.  Brewster,  Jardine and Hawthornthwaite of the  opposition  an'd'Mr. Bowser answered1  the objections.  Mr. Shatford inquired as to the  amount of-work to. be done on the  Kettle Valley this year and "'was told  that 25 miles would . be completed and  possibly 50 niilesj Avork' to be prosecuted at three pojnts. The Premier  further' assured Mr. Shatford that a  branch of the road six miles long  would be built to Princeton.  One of the surprises on the vote on  the Canadian Northern agreement  was the recording of the support of  the member for Bsquimalt, John Jar-  dine, with the government.  Another surprise was the vote of  Mr. Brewster, Alberni, when in a few  minutes division occurred on the measure providing for the bonusing of  the Kettle River Valley railway. Mr.  BreAvster declared himself with the  government because, he said financial  assistance to this line Avas one of the  planks in the platform of his former  leader, John Oliver*.

When the alterations are completed  the neAV machine will be available for  either water or steam,' and Avill furnish the full quota of 2000 feet of air,  which it would'never do' before even  with a full head  of water ..because of  the fact that the original installation  plan was never   completed and was  not meantto be permanent,   The neAv  arrangement, while it) is intended 'to  furnish  only half what.the original  projected plan was. intended  to produce, ' will be  complete in itself and  run  up to the full capacity intended  Avith less strain and -will be .'available'  for either water or steam  which may  be used at will.

In the mill many and most, important changes are looked for but they  will all be effected without the neces-  sity-of closing down the works or diminishing in any degree the quantity  of ore to be crushed.   It is in this part  of the company's plant that difficult  problems have to be solved to stop the  waste that has been going on.   Bad  designing on the part of the architect  Avho originally prepared the plans for  the mill  will make  the problem for  betterment   more   difficult   than    it  would otherwise have been, but nevertheless  the situation  is not irremediable and before the season is out there  will be abundant evidence   that  the  whole concern  is under a new regime.  It is too early vet to specify what the  changes will consist of,  but,  briefly  stated,  the attention will be foeussc-d  on  Avhat might  be termed the mill-  man's     three    "Cs",     concentration,  classification    and    eyanidation   and  amalgamation  relegated  to a  secondary position.

ADVERTISE    IN   THE    GAZETTE  Ottawa, March 4,���������The bill respecting the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern  Railway.C.oriipanyi Avas, reported by  the..railway committee today with a  proviso; .at the suggestion of Mr.  Cowan, that all "extensions be, kept  within Canadian, territory.-:The bill  asks -for the .extension of-,the time of  construction from Princeton. westward. <;  The ,V. V. & E. is practically the  Great Northern and its affairs provide  one of the most spectacular fighti* ever  witnessed in the railway committee  Avhen the legislation .was passed iu  ���������1905. ��������� ���������   '  -, Martin- Burrell,  Yale-Oarilioo,   had  charge of the bill  today and stated  that as .some objections  had been received  in  regard to the   present bill,  he would state the case and ask the  committee  to, look  carefully into its  merits. *- Giving a brief summarv of  the legislation from  the. time of the  original  charter in 1897 until the net  of 1005 was passed, Mr.  Burrell indicated  the character of the discussion  before the committee and   house  in  1905.   The approved plans of the company at that time called for construction of;, the i*o.a'd;froi^'.r'i5ran.d-,^prks.toj  Phoenix,'.'Greenwood and theniie westward, via Midway.'. -The  opposition  put forward at that time was on the  ground of belief or fear "that the road  Avould   strike   southward, across   the  international- line and/fail  to become  what Avas originally  fnt'eh'ded,'*a Canadian road to the Pacific coast.   The  promoters of the 1905 bill  urged that  it. would be-absolutely necessary on  account of engineering difficulties to  deflect into the state of  Washington  but that the company Avould undoubtedly build no th ward into Canada after-  such  deflections and cross the Hope  mountains to the Frasei-river at Hope.  Mr, Emmerson-What was the character of that legislation in 1905?  The legislation,   said   Mr.   Burrell,  passed at that  time provided for such  crossings of the internationaLbounda ry  line, conditional  on the consent of the  governor in council.   Section 3 of that  act also permitted  the   company   to  make   necessary     arrangements   for  connections Avith railways in the state  of Washington, j authorized to make  such agreements and further stated  that the  company might  construct,  aid construction   of and   when   constructed,  maintain and  operate, such  portion as part of the continuous line  of the company's  railway,  instead of  the line authorized by the acts relating to the comp-iny.   By this act the  company has now completed construction  from Laurier  to Princeton,  and  was   making   arrangements   for  the  construction    of   the    portion    from  Princeton  west and for this construction the  extension of time was asked.  In completing this   portion there Avere  five crossings of the international line  two of which, at Molson and Chopaka,  were authorized  by the governor in  council,   but three  of which, Laurier,  Danville and Midway,   Avere not authorized.    Tlie  section of the road from  Denoro,  through  the city of Greenwood, to Midway has not been built.  Mr.  Burrell  presented a resolution  of the Greenwood  board of trade endorsed  by  the Associated   boards  of  Eastern  British Columbia, protesting  against an extension  of time unless  this unbuilt portion was first constnit-  ed.     Some of the grounds on which  protest was made were that the said  three crossings were not authorized,  that     the     company   had   not   built  through southern British Columbia to  the Columbia river as called for in the  charter,  and that the route from Denoro to  Midway specifically called for  and authorized, had not been folloAved.  For the past fortnight Alf. Wilkinson who has been working in the  stamp mill all winter became uneasy  as to the safety of his old partner Tom  Kellog with whom he has prospected  and trapped in past seasons.  Some time before Christmas Kellog  left for the head waters of the Ashnola  where he intended to'put in a'month  oi- two trapping and did not take supplies enough with him to stay out the  whole winter.. Knowing this Wilkinson, after January had passed by, expected to see him come in any time,  and'as week after week went'by without any news from him, hedecided to  go out and try'to locate him.'r  Accordingly on Sunday last he started out accompanied by Jack Way,  who knows the camping grounds up  the Ashnola pretty well, having trapped there, one winter with Billy Dunn,  and in a few days time they hope to  have the satisfaction of finding him  all safe, and sound. The past winter-  has been a. good one for. trappers and  if Kellog was meeting with good success with his line of traps and was  fortunate enough to knYVck' over a  good frit buck or two to help out his  supply of' rations, he could not be  blamed for showing a reluctance to  le-ive them as Long as game was com-  , ing his way. It is hoped that by this  time they have come up with him and  found that he is till right.  McEWEN���������SMITHERAM  Dr. McEwen, sprang somewhat of a  surprise on his Hedley friends last  Saturday, when he phoned up to them  from Keremeos to get the tin cans  ready. By incessant threatening to  clo the deed he managed to disarm  suspicion, but Saturday's new^'from  Keremeos where'he had gone a couple  .of days before, made them grasp the  situation that the real thing had happened.'  The wedding' took place on Saturday at the home of the bride, atOlalla,  Avhen the doctor-.--was. united iu marriage with Miss Lilian Smitheram, third  daughter of the. late Mr. and Mrs.  Smitheram, in the presence of her*  brothers aud sister and a few intimate  friends.  The marriage ceremony, was performed by Rev. A. H. Ransoine. Miss  May Smitheram was bridesmaid and  Mr. F. H. Parsons groomsman. The  bride was married in a handsome blue  plaid travelling dress after Avhich the  bridal party repaired to Moyes Hotel,  Olalla for luncheon, Avhere Mrs Moyes  had prepared a dainty wedding repast  in the excellent style for which her  cuisine is noted.  On Monday the' doctor brought his  bride home to Hedley and received the  congratulations of his numerous  friends.  The Gazette joins in extending  heartiest congra tulations.  Mr.  Burrell stated   that ho  did not  desire  to see  construction  delayed as  completion of the raihvay from Princeton to the coast was a matter of great  importance  to the people of southern  British  Columbia,   but it was evident  that non-fulfillment of the plans had  created   a  hardship   in   the  case   of  Greenwood and the immediate district  and  he would  like to   believe  that a  portion Avould now be constructed and  asked the committee to  give full consideration  to the  merits of the   case.  More  than  $14,000,000 had  now been  spent in  construction  and he  understood  that contracts  had been let for  work on that  portion of  the line between  Princeton  and Tulameen and  also from Abbotsford to Hope.  Mr. Lennox observed that the company had evidently shown good faith  by returning into Canada, Avith which  the committee w*is .mainly concerned.  In answer to a question by Mr. Cowan, Mr. Daly stated that work would  be all on Canadian territorv.  Ixamsiule���������Old Lady���������"What is the  title of the picture, dear?"

EXTENSION BILL  The success, met so. far by Martin  . Burrell, "M. P. in engineering the V.  V. I&.E. extension bill through the  House of Commons at Ottawa is particularly gratifying and shows not only  his breadth and common sense in taking the view of the.matter which he  has done, but also his tact as a legislator in being able to get his associates  in the House to work with him instead  of needlessly antagonizing bhem. The  old adage than you can do more with  an ounce of sugar than a pound of  vinegar evidently is one that Mr.  Burrell believes in and practices.  The situation in which he Avas placed was certainly a difficult one. There  he was confronted with a resolution  of the Greenwood Board. of Trade;  backed up by the indorsation of the  Associated Boards of Trade of the  Kootenay, asking that no extension  ���������be granted until the Great Northern  complete the road over the original  route which the charter covered and  which really meant the roundabout  mountain route by way'of GieeiiAvood,  Denoro and Phoenix instead of the  short water grade route along the  Kettle through Curlew.  Now if Greenwood has a grievance  against anybody in addition to the  Great Northern which has raised their  hopes only to dash them to the  ground, it Avas against Duncan Ross  avIio went in hand and glove Avith the  Great Northern in the memorable  session of 1905 to get them permission  to deflect a line into Washington,  which had already been deflected, for  ��������� the Great Northern had then been  built to Republic by way of Laurier,  Grand Forks, Danville and Curlew.  Neither do we say that Duncan Ross  was wrong in the thing he advocated  at that time for the Gazette thought  he was right at the time and supported him in it, and we still think he was  right. What we did blame him for  was creating opposition for himself  by adopting bullying tactics which  members of the House would not  tolerate, and tin." fact that many of  those who voted against him then are  giving no opposition now, is proof of  the mistake he made in that connection.  The parties who have made volte  face in the matter are the members of  the Gn onwood Board of Trade.

Edmonton, Alberta, March 3���������A five  hour's speech by R. B. Bennett, Conservative, and junior member for Calgary, culminated at midnight in charges that President Clarke, head of the  Alberta and Great Waterways Co.,  had split up $300,000 with his colleagues on the sale of bonds, and that  he himself had been approached by  financial interests seeking to influence  his vote on this question.
