Mining Company  on Thursday l.Yst declared the usual  quarterly dividend for the first quarter  ending March 31st, 1911. This dividend  calls for the distribution of $60,000,  being the regular 3 per cent, quarterly  dividend and the hon us of 2 per cent.,  making a total of five per cent, declared on the issued capital stock of  the Company. This brings the amount  paid out by the company iu dividends  since they took over the mine in Aug  ust, 1909, up to $1,2S4,000, or seventy  cents more than the par value of the  stock. At the ' present time there is  more ore in sight than there was  when they took over the mine.  It was thought by many here that  the development for power which is  now being carried on would in all  probability cut the dividends down for  a short while but the reserve fund,  which the company sets by- each year,  has proved itself equal lo the demand  and as yet there is no evidence that  this has been reduced to any great  amount.    <  .-The official notice regarding the present dividend reads as follows:  HEDLEY GOLD MINING COMPANY  ~:r-������--;'-*--- -?i2HBroad^vay- .-.,.*-.���������-���������-������������������ ..;--  New York, December 10, 1913.

The report of the Canadian Department of Mines for 1912 has been received,  and it  makes possible a few comparisons.     Tho  total  mineral  output  in 1911 for the whole  Dominion   was  valued  at $S0,511,380,  and for 1912 at  $100,279,427.      Both  in   metallic and  non-metallic    products   there   was   a  marked  gain.     In the former  it was  $15,007,330,   which   was more  than 30  per cent.; in the  latter it was $10,074,-  714, which was somewhat under 30 per  cent.     The greatest gain was in coal,  which   increased  $9,55.1,398;   the  next  was  in   copper,    and   was   $5,831,550.  Nickel increased by $3,222,840; gold by  $2,807,717; and silver by $2,084,893.   iii  addition to these items there are structural  materials and clay products  to  be taken into account.     These totaled  $28,794,809,   an  increase  of $0,085,258  over*  the previous  year.    These bring  the total "mineral products for i912 tip  to $i3o,()4S,296, an increase of $31,827,-  302 over 1911.  It is, unfoi-t.uiiii.tely, unavoidable  that such statistic are always a year  in arrears; but they are, nevertheless,  very useful, because they serve to  show not only the general progress of  the country, but the variety of its resources. No less than 57 different  mineral products are   shown in   the  tables.  ���������     ^   The Dominion Treasury has gold in  its vaults to the amount of $9S,5,00,00.0,  of which $93,000,000 are in Canadian  gold and $4,500,000 British gold coinage  Several men are washing gold on the  Coquihalla river, ten miles from Hope.  The gold Leaf mine near Chesaw,  has heen leased for a year to Win.  Plunkett.  In eight days last month the Standard mine at Silverton shipped 18  carloads of ore.

During the first seven days of this  month Granby smelter treated 23,074  ton of ore, 23,015 tons being from the  Granby Mines and 059 tons from other  properties. In the same week Gran In-  shipped 261,000 pounds of blister copper.  Smelter production in the United  States in 1913 an'iounfced to 310,670 tons;  according to figures collected for the  United States Geological Survey, by  Mr. C. E. Siebenthan and printed last  week.  The report of the B. C. Copper Co.,  operating mines in  different  parts of  Washington and B. C, and a smeltet*  at.Greenwood, B. C, for the year ended  December 31,   1913,    submitted at  the Directors'  meeting at New York  on Tuesday, shows net earning of $111-  833,or 3.7S per cent on   the capitalization of $2,958,5-15, as against $120,030,  or 14.4 per  cent on   the  capitalization  for the thirteen months ended December 21. 1912.    The British  Columbia's  decrease in net profits  is  due  principally to  its  extensive  exploration of  new properties during the period  covered by the report, together with  the  fact that heavy payments on several  options were made.   Production at the  Greenwood    smelter  was  maintained  during the year at almost the normal  rate.

CLEMENT   GUILTY    OE    FRAUD  Ottawa, March 16.���������The supreme  court of Canada has handed down ii  decision lip - holding the judgment  of Mr. Justice Cassels in which Mr.  Justice Clement, of British Columbia  was declared to have committed fraud  in charging expenses from Grand  Forks While he was living at Vancouver.  Abbotsford, March 10. - Five heavily  armed foreigners, said to be Italians,  held up the Abbotsford branch of the  RoyalBank at 10:25 this morning and  while two of them stood at the doorway firing their guns in the air, the  other forced Teller .7. 13. .lohnston to  hand out bills and coin to the amount  of $1000 to $2000. The hold-up men  then made their escape, the onlookers  on the streets pf Abbotsford being so  stattied hy the discharge of the revolvers that no one attempted to stop  the thugs and they made a clean getaway.  An early report had it that the teller was killed by the bandits and that  they got away with $3000, but Supervisor H. K. Wriglit, who received an  official report here this morning from  Manager S. A. Morley of the Abbotsford branch, and who also talked with  Teller Johnston oyer the long distance  telephone, stated that the loss would  not exceed $2000 and was probably  well under that sum.  "Since the holdups of a few months  ago, particularly the Cedar Cottage  affair, the Royal Bank tellers and  cashiers are instructed only to take  out sufficient specie and bills from the  vault to do for the days business,"' he  exclaimed. "'It is highly improbable  that the stuff at Abbotsford had more  than $2000 out this morning. In fact.  [ w as informed by Manager Morley  that while he could not at the time  give the exact total he placed it at  about $1500."  According to the story told by Teller Johnson five men, all of them  dark and swarthy in appearance,  roughly dressed and heavily armed,  rushed into the bank at about 10:30  o'c'Ifick'T" The --staff 'miembers^were 'all  behind the counters at the time. Two  of them, after shouting unintelligibly,  wheeled around and stood at the door  facing outside. The other three ran  up to the teller's cage and before any  one had time to pick tip a revolver  the three thugs faced them with guns  pointed through the wicket and demanded what they had. Johnson  promptly pushed the bills and coin he  "had on the counter through the wicket.  He had several thousand dollars  more in the vault but the holdups weie  apparently content with what they had  and as soon as they got their hands on  the money they ran out through the  doorway. As they ran they fired off  their pistols and shouted and yelled.  As soon as the bank officials could  catch their breath they telephoned in  to the head office at Vancouver and  also sent word to the provincial police.  Provincial constable Foster and other  nieuthers of the force aie now on the  track of the five desperadoes.  It did not take the provincial police  department in Vancouver long to provide action in the holdup. The report of the Abbotsford rohbery came  in to the office here at 11 o'clock and  within five minutes Chief Constable  Smith, Senior Constable North and  Constable Green left in an auto speeding to Abbotsford at about 50 miles an  hour.  Thu report to the Vancouver provincial police had it that the five  bandits were all Italians, tall n\pn and  roughly dressed. The bank staff informed the police that the amount of  money taken was about $2000. -Very  little in the way of an accurate description could be given by the clerks  to the provincial police office over the  phone as the affair took place so  quickly they were hardly aware of  what was going on before the hold up  was all over.  Latest reports say the bandits, in  their flight, dropped about a thousand  dollars of their booty and this was recovered.  Mr. Morley is well known in Hedley  having been here in the summer of  1910, acting as manager of the bank  here while Mr. Hincks was away on his  holidays.  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S  TIMBER ROYALTIES  New Bill Should Encourage  Investment  of Capital���������It Embodies New  Principle  British Columbia's timber royalties  bill has created considerable interest.  According to those responsible for the  legislation, there are two important  features about this legislation. The  first is that it fixes the period of royalty on timber in British Columbia, for  forty years, and thus encourages the  investment of capital in timber and  puts no obstacle in the way of developing the industry. The second is  that it embodies an entirely new principle, that of providing that the public  shall share with the holders of timber  the profit due to the rise in stumpage  values. This.is ptovided in the Act  by those sections which automa tieally  increase the royalty of the lumber  price over and above a flat rate of $18.  WHAT LONDON DEALERS SAY  A London cable message says that  leading timber agents there declare  that the new bill will have but little  effect on the English business in view  of the fact that British imports of"  British Columbia timber is less than  two pel-cent, of the total. This view  is expressed among others by Messrs.  Foy, Morgan A:.- Company, Lagart.  Beaten <fe Company, and Churchill <fc  Sim. On the other hand, Messrs.  Neame & Company says: "Not only  will increased royalties annoy the  British Columbia lumberman, but it  will also help Portland to compete  against, them, and pi ices are so low  now that a further handicap might  compel British Columbians to close  their mills.'* Mr. Keith Price, of Messrs  Price & Pierce, said: "Any royalties  of this description will certainly militate against, placing lumber bonds or  shares here. Trie industry is already  so depressed and as current prices are  almost ������is low As Was ever knowin any  further burden would be like the last  straw." Most London dealers, however, think far more of freights than  these contemplated royalties.  OF THE KOYALTY INCREASES  The royalty increases for which the  bill provides takes effect on January  1st, 1915. The bill provides that these  increases shall be, for the Coast lumber, from the present royalty of 50'  cents to 75 cents, an increase of 50 pet-  cent. This increase is not applied arbitrarily, but is the result of raising the  royalty on different classes of logs in  a proportion which puts the highest  increase on the best logs, and no increase at all on logs of such low value  that the increase would mean that  they would be ]eft lying iu the woods.  n������NCIPLE OI-'THE BILL  In speaking of the bill, Hon. W. R.  Ross, K. C, provincial minister of  lands, said:  "These  increases are made subject  to the result of governmental investigations  and are  applied at the end of  each  five years,   to hold  for the  next  five years.  Therein lies the great principle around which hangs this bill; the  principle  that   the  Government,   the  people,  and the lumbermen are co-operators in an industrial enterprise, the  principle  that by  frequent re-adjustments, based   on the actual facts, tint-  b'jr  royalty  will keep pace  with  the  growth in lumber values.     So far as I"  am aware,   no such principle- has ever  been enacted before on so broad a scale  by  any other  nation.    In   it lies not  merely the great solution of the royalty question, but also the new principle  of disposing of other public natural resources  which will live,  it is my earnest hope; and which will also form the  basis for the  right handling of other  similar policy questions hy 0111 Government."���������Monetary Times.  The financial statement of the Standard Silver-Lead mine at Silverton  shows the Company's reserve fund at  the end of January  to bo  $261,633.13.  GENERAL NEWS  The third cassion has been put in  for the Kettle Valley Bridge on the  Fraser river at Hope, and the contractors think that all danger from  high water is passed.  Two Hindus were murdered at  Bull river, near Cranbrook, on March  the 11th. It is thought that they were  killed by their fellow countrymen.  Drink and religous quarrel was probably the cause of the shooting. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, MARCH 19, 1914.  .and.'. '���������;���������*".  Similkameen Advertiser.

TIMBER ROYALTY  The following article taken from the  Toronto  Mail  and    Empire shows,   to  some extent,  what   people   in . eastern'  .Canada thinks of some of British   Col-  - uiiihia's  legislation.  ."The   magnificent    forest   areas . of !  . British Columbia  are  a   heritage   the  .people of that province ought to watch  . over .most  carefully.   .Few  provinces  ' or states 'are so   bountifully   endowed.  The timber-should ������������������-ba ��������� regarded,   as  a trust to he administered for the gen-  , era I   benefit,  not mainly  as  afford in a*  opportunity for privileged exploitation.  Because, perhaps, the timber resources  of the continent have been thought inexhaustible    a. sadly mistaken   view���������  this principle   has never properly   imbedded itself���������as a   matter ol"  cardinal  '  policy���������in the. public  mind., either  in  the   United    Slates    or   Canada.    Tlie  output   from   public  or   Crown   lands  under  lease  has   been   tixeil     by   the  several Governments, but without any  restrictions   upon   the   price  charged.  The consequence   has   been,   naturally  that the users of lumber have   had  to  pay the Government taxes, and  there  has been no. regulation   of the  extent  to which the public, the owner of  the  leased limits, could be. bled for its own  property.  The Government of British Columbia, which has been foremost in l'or-  esty regulation, has to take a stand  on this mutter deserving of the warmest commendation. It is readjusting  the terms of royalty upon which  leases are granted. In making substantial increases in the amounts due  to the Government it is also undertaking to regluate the lumber prices.  The scheme covers eight periods of  five years each, the royalties being on  a sliding scale. The principle upon  which the measuie, which has been  laid before the Legislature by the  Minister of Lands, is based is that of  profit-sharing by the Government in  the exploitation of the timber. It  proposes to obtain for the Provincial  Treasury part of the regulated value  of the timber without permitting the  amount thus diverted from the pockets of the timber-men to he taken out  of lumber consumers. That is the  basis of forest adminstratioii on behalf  of the people."  To the Editor of the Gazette  Dear,Sir:  On .iny* return to Medley on Snturr-  day last I found that the wires fastening the fence around the -Pinto reservation had been cut at the foot of the  hill west of Haynes St. and-I'lie,fence  thrown down 'while' a team of horses  and wagon had been driven in and a  considerable number of loads of earth  hauled out for use on gardens in Hedley, contrary to law and to,the detriment of the Indians of the Chu-chu-  wey-ha reservation. I have had notices posted to prevent a repetition  and I ask the 'members of the Hedley.  Golf Club.,, the Indians and all others  w jura re. fair enough to recognize that  the Indian has as iuui:h , right to his  holdings as* any white man, to notify  constable Sproule, Indian agent, J'.'li.  Blown, or myself of any 'fin ther in-  f i actions, of the -kind, when without  any further warning than the notices  and this published letter, the penalties-  provided iivthe Indian Act will be put  in force.'  Under agreement with the Indians  made on October ]4tli, 1913, the members of the Hedley Golf Club and any  others whom they .may wish to permit  us,spectators, may enter the grounds  over three stiles provided for in the  agi eeineiit. for the purpose of playing  golf on the course how laid out. The  golf club also have the privilege of  driving a team through the Pinto gate,  to take in sand for the greens, mow  the grass and weeds on the ''fair way"  and-do 'what other team work that is  necessary to keep the course in order  except scraping with, railroad iron as  foinierly done. The,Golf Club agreed  thai the. Indians retain full 'pasturage  rights Tor'-their own stock at all seasons of the year, and the Indians  agreed that the golf club piotectt.be  greens' with posts and wire, if necessary, from damage by stock.  To prevent misrepresentation of my  attitude in this matter I wish to point  out that at the first meeting of the executive of the Hedley Golf Club last  fall, after the agreement had been  made with the 1 ndiatis by myself oh  behalf of the Golf Club, I reported the  agreement entered 111 to; lequested that  it be duly entered inthe minutes, and  insisted that the Golf Club cany out  to the letter and spirit the terms of  the agreement, both as to the prompt  payment on the first of July of each  year of the stipulated yearly rental,  and particularly the obligation that  the Golf Club bear their share in keeping up the fences bv maintaining close  watch that no one be allowed to tamper with them. And even if I had not  been on record in this manner I would  now be remiss in my duty to permit  any violation of the law against the  interest of the Indians.  To further explain the situation and  prevent misunderstanding, the. public  should know that no individual Indian  can give permission to anyone to remove anything from the reservation,  either in the shape of timber, earth or  gravel,'withoiit the written consent of  the .Superintendent General of Indian  affairs, and neither has the chi^f, the  band, the Indian agent nor myself the  authority to grant such permission  without that assent. It will therefore  be of no avail to offer the excuse that  permission has been obtained from  any lessee or any of those in the chain  of responsibility already enumerated,  to stay prosecution.  When the earth was hauled last fall  for the rink, although it was not removed from the reserve, 1 disapproved  of the manner in which it was taken,  for no  discretion was exercised either  Mar  The following are "the read ings showing tei'npe,rature, etc., for : the' week  ending.

Each  has his own particular  scheme of life.  The honest manufacturer  aims to make the best goods  he can and to advertise then]  so that all the world will  know of their merits. He  courts investigation. He  wants customers to hold him  to a rigid accountability.  The dishonest manufacturer hopes to profit by deception. He produces .id article  that will be offered as "just  as good" though he knows it  is inferior. He seeks to make  a larger profit than the honest manufacturer, and this  larger profit is necessary because toe has to find new customers day after day.
