The director-- oi' tho Hedley Gold  Mining Co. at their head office in New  York on March 8th, declared the usual  quarterly dividend of 3% and an extra  dividend of 2% on the outstanding  stock of tlie company payable on  Match 31st.

When the extra dividend of 2% was  paid at the end of December last it  was thought that this extra hon hon  was given during the Christinas period as a sort of holiday gift to stockholders, hut its repetition now, three  months later, puts a different face on  the matter and indicates very clearly  that this is the gait they have struck  under present operating conditions  and the present condition of the mine.  Five per cent quarterly is certainly  hitting it off to a lively tune thai  must appear catchy and attractive to  the fortunate stock-holder and the  concerns which are paying 20% today  are few'and far between.  The new plant is now in operation  and while a few weeks may yet be required for adjustment in order to get  their full duty, there is no doubt that  the effects in the way of securing a  material saving in extraction are already apparent and accounts for the  ineerased dividend. When the water-  supply increases sufficiently to enable  them to dispense with the steam auxiliary plant the profits will be still  greater.  fALfl'GE'  Livery, Feed k Sale tables  HKDI.EY   15. C.

TORONTO'S BIG KICK  Mass   Meeting   5000 Strong   Condemn  Reciprocity���������Most of Speakers  Prominent Liberals'  DR. J. L.  MASTERS  DENTIST  Will be at Home office in Oroville. 1st  to :i4th of each month.  Office  on  North   Main   .Street.  NOTICE  Toronto, March 9th���������-Five thousand  people occupied Ma.ssey Hall this evening at the meeting to protest against  reciprocity, and a great many more  were turned away. Sir William Mortimer Clark, formerly lieutenant govei-  nor of Ontario, occupied the chair.  The meeting was announced as a nonpartisan gathering intended to inaugurate a campaign to protest against the  a greeiiient. With the exception of T  G. Blackstock, the speakers were all  Liberals.  The resolution, presented by Z. A,  Lash, K.C.. and seconded by W. T.  White, managing director of Lhe National Trust company, was passed  withoutu question. After setting forth  the same arguments against Reciprocity contained in the protest of the  ���������'aforementioned 18 Liberals" the resolution declared that before the agreement went into effect it should be  passed upon by tin* people and that to  prevent the continuance of the disturbance of trade already caused by the  action of the government, the election  should be held without delay. The  other speakers were Arthur Hawkes  and W. K. George.  (Nelson .Vows)  Liberal papers 011 the prairie tell  their readers that the coming in force  of the reciprocity agreement will be a  great thing because it will lower the  price of fruit.  In the fruitgrowing districts they  say that the fruit grower will get  more for-his fruit than he does- now.  In the cities the working man is told  that it will reduce the cost of living  by reducing the price of farm products.  In rural districts the .-farmer is told  that it means higher prices for the  same products.  The prairie wheat grower is told  that the price he can get in Minneapolis is better than the price he can  get by exporting grain to Europe. Figures are published showing how  much more per* acre the land will be  ���������worth when all the wheat goes to  Minneapolis and brings in six cents  more per bushel,  In Vancouver and Fort William and  in other railway towns, they say that  the wheat and other traffic will continue to go east and west as at present  and that these towns and railways  will not be injured.  Everyone who ships into the United  States will be enriched by taking off  iii' the duty, because it is the producer  who pays the duty.  Everyone who buys from the United  States will get goods cheaper because  it is the 'consumer who pays the duty.  Good results will come from taking  the duty off fruit, from leaving it on  implements, from keeping lumber on  the tree list ;md from keeping coal off,  from having reciprocity in wheat and  from not having it in flour.  Truly it must be a magnificent agreement that can produce all these contradictory results at one and the same  time; .and the statesmen who can invent legislation that will perform all  these stunts simultaneously are, indeed wonderful statesmen. Also the  good people who  in each   part of the  AFTER THE HEN TOO  Sir Wilfrid Has a Crow to  Pick With  Her ss Well as With the  Fruit Grower.  , ' News-Advertiser  Those who keep hens and sell eggs  in this province have a personal interest in the reciprocity treaty. This  agreement makes eggs free. The present Canadian duty is three cents and  that of the United States five cents.  According to the trade tables .Canada  imported' last year. 893,324 dozen eggs,  of which 757,316 came from the United  States. Canada exported only 160,650  dozen,, of which 35,732 went to the  United' States.

FATAL FIRE AT PRINCETON  News reached Hedley on Monday  morning of the burning of the Princeton hotel owned by James Wallace  and the death of one occupant. The  lire took place at -1 a. 111. [Sunday morning and the origin is unknown. The  main Ivavb of the hotel being a log  building it was easier to keep the fire  from spreading than iu the case of a  frame structure. The.'most regrettable feature, of the fire was the fatality  which-attended it. The victim was  an Austrian named Joe Galitzky, who  had been working at the Nickel Plate  before he went to' Princeton a couple  of weeks ago. The man had been intoxicated to the degree ot helplessness  the night before and in the excitement of the lire- he was forgotten.  There was said to be $1(100 insurance  on the premises and the owner had  been .offered .$12000 for the property a  while before.

VAI, (.'. IIAVNKS  Fob. I'itli, hllO 7  fancouver,  B. C.  When   writing   Ac versers     Please  Mention the Gazette.  .Mrs. J. A. Hrown has derided on  Friday, April 28th as the date of her  concert in Hedley when our townspeople may look for a musical treat.  It is Airs. Brown's intention to give  the Hedley Hospital the benefit of  proceeds over and above expenses  which is very generous indeed on her  part and more than anyone was expert-nig. Her system of vocal instruction aims at thoroughness and pupils  are jjnot given tasks they have not  been prepared for by suitable instruction. For this reason it is not improbable that only those who have had an  opportunity of becoming fairly advanced in their studies may be. asked  to sing. In any case the public may  look forward to a program of special  merit.  Among the fuel producers of the  district that Avill henceforth cater to  the warming up of, British Columbians  is the Osoyoos Coal Co. on the Similkameen about live miles above Princeton. By the by, the name is the most  objectionable feature about the whole  concern for like tin- appending of the  name Ashnola to the same locality a  few years ago, the use of the name  "Osoyoos" for the coal property is  another geographical misfit that is  calculated to do mischief by needlessly confusing. Fortunately, however,  the coal is of a. character that will  carry its own recommendation and  W. C, McLean who has had charge of  the opening up of the property is in  receipt of numerous bouquets (metaphorically speaking) from those who  have used if. About 25-car-loads were  taken out during the past winter and  and shipped to vaiious parts of the interior by way of introducing it and a  carload brought into Medley by A.  Winkler is said to haye given good  satisfaction to those who obtained  some of it. Whether it is used to cook  the. "pan-itch" or warm up the toddy  Abu; ran fully recommend it to his  friends. I  THE COLONEL HITS BACK  To my Old Friend Megraw  Editor of the Hedley Gazette  Decir Sir: '  You do your con tern porary,the Editor of the Summerland Review, a  great injustice in your issue of March  2nd in assuming that I (Colonel Cart-  wright) was responsible for his* sensible and patriotic stand in favor of  reciprocity.  T have no doubt that he consulted  some of the Conservative and successful fruit growers of this .place before  expressing himself in the able way ne  did. Taking his cue, from them,-���������do  you know that our good pieces of fruit  land are bringing from $1,000 to $1,400  per acre for orchards not yet in full  bearing? Last year one conservative  fruit grower netted $-1,000from twelve  acres, while two others realized half  that amount each from about the  Siiine area. They sold privately, shipping only fully ripened fruit and getting cash in advance.  It is true that our poor fruit may  need protection, but it would need  treble the present protection to help  it. Next year we won't have any poor  fruit from Summerland, we need not.  We want Chicago and Ney Yorw markets for our high grade apples. Moreover, we desire both English and  American buyers to take in our district after taking in Oregon and  Washington.  I do not remember exactly what all  my 1S91 views referred-- to in your  March 2nd editorial were, nor does it  matter. At present I favor reciprocity, not so much for it's immediate  good effects, but more particularly because it will open the eyes of the farmers on both sides of the line, and  show how little protection ran ever  help them. This will undoubtedly  start high protection on the down  grade. You know the rest, or my  efforts towards redeeming you from  your ways in 1891 have indeed proved  futile.  I am sorry that you should have referred to my father. Me is not responsible for me although he- started me  in the right direction. Henry George  has to answer for my opinions on  trade, transportation and real estate  matters.  You will agree with me that the  world has moved in ourdirection since  the year referred to, and is still moving with accelerated speed. Had you  not better get into our band wagon  and move along to the tune of "Progress" rather than be left behind in  the slough to die, or do you not believe in death-bed repentance!  Yours sincerely  K. C.VIiTWKlOIlT  ANOTHER METAPHOR WANTED  In view of the fact that so eminent  an authority on fruit pests as Mr.  Maxwell Smith has likened Bruce of  Saturday Sunset to "a festering pimple on the posterior of humanity"  wouldn't if be well for Bruce's two  idolatrous admirers, the editors of the  Chilliwack New Era and the Nicola  Valley News, to offer a modest prize  to other naturalists for suggestions  for a similarly suitable metaphor by  which to establish their identities ?

A FRIENDLY TILT  In iinother column will be found a  letter from our old and highly esteemed friend, Colonel Cartwright of Suni-  mcrland, in which he shows that we  were in error in laying upon him any  responsibility for the editorial apostasy of the Summerland Review on  the subject of Reciprocity.  Also  before going  any  further we  wish   to   congratulate   Colonel   Cart-  wright on   having advanced the first  real  argument   which   we   have   yet  seen in favor- of Reciprocity, for in doing so he has accomplished more than  his chief Sir 'Wilfrid Laurier whose  defence of the proposal was unworthy  the man aud unworthy the position he  holds.      Colonel    Cartwright's   argument, however, is substantial and supported  by an   instance which there is  no  gainsaying,  for when  we   tells us  that  "one  Conservative fruit grower  netted   $1,000 from   twelve, acres" he  deals with  accomplished tacts instead  of    visionary   hopes,   and   when   the  Summer-land   Review   referred   to the  high class    market   across    the    line  which awaited our better class of fruit  we wen.- disposed to  regard it sis more  or less of a pipe dream.    Of course the  case may be exceptional and we do not  know what all may be implied   in the  admission    "sold   privately,   shipping  only ripened fruit and  getting cash in  advance"'   but nevertheless  we believe  the   Colonel-thinks   if can be repeated  by those who ran  produce the quality  or he would not use the example.  The occasional vigorous prod which  he gives us we rather enjoy, for it  brings back recollections of .lis old  time aptitude to turn an argument;  be.-iiles it assures us that the intervening years have not had too mellowing  .-in effect and there is still plenty of the  old lighting sphit left.  But there is one thing we must not  let him get off with. Like many other  Liberals he is very fond of pointing  at the progiess made by Camilla, during  the   past decade   or two  and   pat-  the trade<-_uc.������*tioii temporarily shelved  2.50 | they  acc-'trd tlie   National policy'and  its high protection and have kept it iu  opei.-ition ever since.      It is true then-  was a revision of the  tariff in I.S97 but  no. appreciable lowering or re-adju^t-  ment of the duty further than tlie  Conservatives had themselves already  begun to make as announced by Fos-.  ter in that noted speech in which h ���������  quoted fiom Tennyson;  " riinfc man'.-: the best Conservative  Who lops the mouldor'd brunch away".  ft is true Canada has prospered under L:i.urier's regime, but prospered  mainly by virtue of tlie Conservative  trade policy, and that is the policy tin-  Liberals now propose to destroy on  the instalment plan with the present  reciprocity prop- sal as the first instal-  ni -nt,  Tinies and scenes have indeed changed since  Colonel'Cartwright'. and  the  editor discussed   some of  these  questions in  Stanley   ban ark's in  the long-  ago   that   seems   only   such-  a   short  while.   As politics were tabooed in the  ante-room   other opportunities had to  be sought.     A full captain then in the  permanent  force   and a  life-long student he has since  risen to   nearly'the  top of the military ladder, and it was  with mingled pleasure and regret that  we learned two years ago he had taken  up his'a bode in British Columbia after  failing  health   had  compelled him  to  resign his   position   on the staff at Ottawa.    And   now it seems  to us that  we could rather enjoy   resuming some  of  the. old  discussions,  for when  we  judge,  the   present and   the future iu  the lighi of the pa#t the old time Liberal   who will attempt   to justify   the  course  of  his  party  is  covered  with  confusion  at nearly every  turn of the  road.    All   we need   to do  is to  mark  the effects  of bhe trade   and transportation   policies   which, that   wise   old  statesman,  Sir John Macdonald,   put  through in the face of the  most determined opposition of the Liberals.

At all  events a little further reading on the  subject later on found us very strongly inclined in the direction of single  tax and opposed to tlu; absurd principle now in vogue of punishing thrift  and enterprise by taxing improvements instead of levying the rates on  land values.

He was  very pleasantly surprised at the evidences of progress he met up the valley and particularly in connection  with the new town of Coalmont.  Mrs. McKinnon has learned from a  nswepa.per published in her home  town in Nova Scotia that her son  Dan who went back there three years  ago is ill with the smallpox. In all  probability the quarantine established  to prevent its spread is responsible for  cutting off direct communication 'by  - mail and will account for her failing  ���������to learn of it direct by letter.  Geo. Young left on Monday's train  for Central Africa where he said he  had obtained employment to go prospecting for a concern that was sending him out. The old adage that "distant lields are always green" is about  the only explanation which can be offered to account for anyone leaving  British Columbia to find another  mineral field in which to prospect.  Already the interest that appears to  he taken in golf here augurs well for a  successful Minimer's play. Part of the  course will not he in shape for a week  or more hut for the past week a considerable part of the flat is hare with  the frost out of the ground and the  turf dry. Advantage has thus been  taken of it for practice. Play hist fall  was kept up until within a week of  Christmas and now that it has been  resumed before the middle of March  no devotee of the game can complain  at the shortness of the season.  Last year's injury to the railway  bridges taught the railway company  that the Similkameen river is a-stream  not to be trifled with and this spring  they,-ire taking time by the forelock.

(J.    r -  A subscription list is being passed  around which has for its object the  raising of sufficient.funds to put the  finishing touches on our church.  Many visitors to a place form their  opinion of it largely from the appearance of the i-hurch or churches, as tin-  case may be, and though the people  of Keremeos contributed liberally  when the church was being built, still  its unfinished condition is somewhat  of a reflection on the community. We  hope to see sufficient funds raised for  the purpose: If anyone should be overlooked iu the passing around of the  list do not take offence. Hand your  contribution in to .Mr. Cameron, who  will receive it with pleasure and give  due credit.  J. A.

Hogg arrived last week from  Vancouver lo look after tlie property  here of Mr. Iieid of Vancouver, and  has taken possession of Mr. F. Schneider's resilience. We understand  that Mr. Iieid owns lot 10, adjoining  thai of Geo. Thomas, and is also negotiating for the purchase of Mr.  Schneiders lot.  Geo. Allison who has been on a business trip to Vancouver in company  with Bert Thomas of Princeton returned to the valley on Saturday.  He reports great excitement al the  coast over the discoveries at Steamboat -.Mountain and says that during  the coming slimmer thousands of  people will flock in there over the  Hope trail.  While,   in   Keremeos   recently   Mr.  Flack, instructor in the apple packing  school,   paid   a   visit   to   the   ranch of  Win.   Mnnery in   the lower   valley for  the purpose   of examining his orchard  and apples,   which are  grown   on bottom land.      It is  generally considered  that bottom   land here is   unsiiited for  .fruit growing  but  the  experience  of  the older ranchers, most of whose orchards  are on   the bottom,  disproves  this. Mr. Flack stated that the Yellow  Newton  grown  by  Mr. Manery were  the best  he had seen anywhere  in the  province  and   the  Yellow  Newton is  the standard  of perfection in apples.  He advises tire  ranchers here to plant  the higher grade of apples, this being  one of  the very few districts  in  the  province in which they thrive.  ���������SUBSCRIBE FOR THE  GAZETTE  NOTICE  Certificate of Improvements.
